Why would anyone pretend to be a doctor. Hvaen't they watched tv? Everytime someone pretends to be a doctor they end up next to a medical emergency and unable to do anything but look foolish. Much better to pretend to be a marine biologist.
"While in his office for an evening meeting, Bahinipaty told his client he had to perform a medical examination of her breasts, reiterating that he is a doctor. He fondled the woman and took pictures."
Every case she ever worked on can now be re-opened if the other side wishes to do so.
She won't be practicing law again any time soon, though she'll be defending herself from a lot of lawsuits.

Steve: I'm afraid that isn't how it works. If holding herself out as a doctor resulted in material harm to a client, she may get sued for malpractice. But that's pretty much it.
She is suspended until Feb 2014, which means, she is free to practice again in Feb 2014. Although she strikes me as the type who will have her own reality show by then.
The story I linked was meant to illustrate: it takes a lot more than a bit of ill-advised egotistical puffery to get disbarred altogether. I mean, A LOT. Words like "conviction," "defecation," "assault," and "lewd" typically appear somewhere in the board's findings of fact. Discipline in the legal profession is a joke compared to discipline in the medical profession.
Yes. In one fairly recent local case, the respondent pooped himself. In the course of his 7th DUI, whilst smashing up his Porsche, a tour bus, and a squad car. His defense was that the gigantic heap of empty airplane-size booze bottles in the backseat, and the full one in his hand, belonged to a passenger who was absent at the time of arrest. Took two years from the date of arrest for disciplinary proceedings to result in disbarment.
[An Nahar] A boy opened fire on classmates early Monday in a high school cafeteria in Ohio, killing one and wounding four before fleeing and being apprehended, police and witnesses said.
Children were preparing for class at Chardon High School, outside Cleveland, when the boy, who was identified by classmates but described by police only as a "juvenile", started shooting with a handgun.
A teacher chased the boy from the school as the small community was placed on lockdown and the victims were rushed to hospital, some by helicopter.
The boy was locked away a short while later, turning himself in to bystanders, according to one police statement.
"The sad news is that I know from my people downtown, we have one deceased student right now," Chardon police chief Tim McKenna told a presser, providing no more information about the injured.
"One of the teachers happened to chase the shooting suspect out of the building," allowing officers to enter and secure the school to allow emergency personnel to treat the victims, he said.
"With that done, we started searching the areas, and shortly thereafter, we came up with the suspect. He is in jug," McKenna said. "No name will be released because he hasn't been charged yet. He is a juvenile."
Authorities put the school on lockdown after shots were fired at about 7:30 am (1230 GMT), just prior to the start of classes.
Masked SWAT team members ringed Chardon High and conducted security sweeps, and pupils were quickly evacuated from the building and transported to a nearby elementary school to be released to parents.
Police didn't identify the suspect but fellow classmates did and described the panic inside the cafeteria as they feared for their lives.
"My friends were crawling on the floor, and one of my friends was bent over the table, and he was shot," one student, Nate, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "It was almost like a firecracker went off. I turned around and saw him standing with a gun and I saw him take a shot."
Word of the tragedy sent parents rushing to the school, where they went through a protracted process of reuniting with their children.
"We've had disaster drills in the past, thank God we put those into place because our teaching staff did an excellent job in a very horrible, traumatic experience this morning," said Chardon schools superintendent Joe Bergant.
"Our prayers go out to the five victims and their families, first and foremost.
"We feel so disheartened -- it's going to take me a moment to get back together here. We certainly hope those families know that they're in our thoughts and our prayers."
A candlelight vigil service was scheduled for Tuesday night at a local church and grief counselors were on call to help the small-town Ohio community try to come to terms with the tragedy.
"Pls pray for maimed Chardon HS students, their families, and their community; appears things under control now," Ohio Governor John Kasich said on Twitter.
A parent, Jeannette Roth, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that her son, Joshua, a junior, was in the cafeteria when the shooting occurred.
Joshua told her that students were eating breakfast when a boy "stood up and starting shooting, and then it was chaos."
Another boy also described the chaotic situation.
"I thought it was firecrackers at first, I wasn't sure," an unnamed pupil told MSNBC.
"And then I saw a bunch of people running out. So I started running ... I heard someone yell behind me, 'Get down.' And I heard a bunch of shots fired behind me."
Governor Kasich instructs us to pray, but only AFTER children are slain at a school in which they could not pray.
Students pray at school all the time, and all the more fervently for it not being a formal activity.
"Dear God, please let Teacher call on someone else."
"Dear God, I'll study next time if only I pass this test."
"Ohmigod, it's going to explode!!!"
Governor Kasich asked. In a twitter, no less, which presumes that those who received it were interested in what he had to say, rather than otherwise. He did not instruct. And as he is doing a much better job than his misbegotten predecessor, I have absolutely no complaints that he so chooses to share the sorrows of those who suffered in this tragedy.
Separately, a second student has died. One hopes the kids who'd been bullying the killer reflect upon the theme of unexpected outcomes.
The child who did the shooting -- was he reenacting the Terminator? The Matrix? High Plains Drifter? -- isn't dead yet. He turned himself in and he'll likely go to a juvie center until he's 21. If tried as an adult he'll likely get out when he's 30 or 35.
If he was dangling from a rope within 24 hours nobody'd have to pray after the next shooting because there wouldn't be one.
[An Nahar] Officials are puzzled over a mysterious hot tub that was installed -- and then removed -- from the roof of a building on the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor.
But a group of "creative" students are believed to be the culprits, Computer Science and Engineering building front man Steven Crang told AnnArbor.com on Friday.
Initially reported by the Michigan Daily campus newspaper, the hot tub first was noticed Saturday, had visitors and was gone by Monday night.
"People were kind of flabbergasted," Crang said. "It was obviously unexpected. It was pretty creative and now it's gone. It left a buzz in its wake."
Despite its short stay, students called the hot tub the Bob and Betty Beyster Bubbler after the couple who donated $15 million to the school. The building is named after them. The philanthropic couple "found it amusing," Crang said.
"It's apparently people who are close to the department because they were able to gain access to the building and install the tub," he said of whoever installed it. "The thing that intrigued everyone was that it was on the fourth-floor balcony. It's a large hot tub and the doors that lead out to the balcony are not real big, so they had to do some work to get it out there."
to be honest, nobody at the college level would've thought far enough ahead to check on the spa point load (which is actually most fully loaded with people, not water) on the existing structure's capable loading. Dumb stunt

You think keep thinking that. It is just those crazy college students...
The best part of the show is the Latin motto on the development group's shield... "Velocitas Eradico". Been a long time since Latin IV but it looks like a bad syntax take off on "Speed Kills", changing it to "Speed Obliterates".
Of course with the first person ending it really seems to say "I obliterate speed".
Looks like Fox videos won't play on a linux platform. Need to go down to the basement for a window laptop.. That not helping those of us that use alternate platforms to reduce the risk of virus and infection.

We're all doomed, I tell ya. Repent and don the sackcloth and ashes.
A changing climate isn't just about floods, droughts and heatwaves. It brings erupting volcanoes and catastrophic earthquakes, says Bill McGuire in London.
The idea that a changing climate can persuade the ground to shake, volcanoes to rumble and tsunamis to crash on to unsuspecting coastlines seems, at first, to be bordering on the insane. How can what happens in the thin envelope of gas that shrouds and protects our world possibly influence the potentially earth-shattering processes that operate deep beneath the surface? The fact that it does reflects a failure of our imagination and a limited understanding of the manner in which the different physical components of our planet - the atmosphere, the oceans, and the solid earth, or geosphere - intertwine and interact.
Somehow our ancestors made it through the last big ice age up till now. Ingenious of them to develop all those heavy industries and automobiles and figure out domestication of animals to melt all that ice cap.
Will Robinson Danger Alert. The kooky internationalists have been pushing hard for an international tax for years now. They don't care how big, what kind, how justified or not; they just want some tax, any tax, as a precedent.
They see it as a first step to universal taxes on everyone to fund international government. And they are just as adamant about it as they are about socialized medicine.
China is to overhaul the sometimes threatening slogans used to enforce its one-child policy, the authorities have announced.
State media blamed local officials for coming up with phrases such as, "If you don't get sterilised, your house will be demolished", "Kill all your family if you don't follow the rule" and, "If you escape (sterilisation), we'll hunt you down; if you want to hang yourself, we'll give you the rope".
How about replacing the psychotic One Child Policy? China is destroying its next generation. Those not aborted or left at orphanages are under such tremendous pressure that more and more young couples are deciding not to have children at all. For privacy reasons, I won't go on at length about the behavior of certain "Little Emperors" of my acquaintance; but if the system doesn't change, some of these kids are going to be wet messes as adults.
The government is finding that one young couple cannot support both sets of parents, surviving grandparents, and their own child. Whether the cadres will wake up and do something about it is another matter.
[Dawn] Chief Election Commissioner Justice (r) Hamid Ali Mirza on Monday directed to take action against Sindh Assembly candidate Waheeda Shah for slapping a polling official as well as the police personnel for negligence of duty.
He took serious notice of the incident of slapping a polling staff by Pakistain People's Party's candidate Syeda Waheeda Shah at Polling Station No 16 at Government Girls High School, Tando Muhammad Khan and directed the Provincial Election Commissioner, Sindh to take necessary action under the law.
He also directed to lodge an FIR against Syeda Waheeda Shah that was implemented by registering FIR No 33/2012 under Section 86 (3)(b) of the Representation of People Act, 1976 at Police Station, Tando Muhammad Khan.
Earlier, the assistant presiding officer who was slapped by PPP candidate Waheeda Shah Bukhari during Saturday's by-election had termed the incident a result of a misunderstanding.
The CEC made it clear that no one would be allowed to threaten or use force against the polling staff whose services are hired by the Election Commission of Pakistain (ECP) in connection with election duties. The Commission would take all possible steps to provide protection to the polling staff and take an exemplary action under the law against any one who indulges in any illegal activities to disrupt peaceful atmosphere at the polling stations.
[Dawn] Two officials of Khan Razik cop shoppe deprived a senior citizen of Rs50,000 and a costly cellular phone set.
Senior Superintendent of Police Tahir Ayub, when contacted, confirmed the robbery by officials of his force, saying both of them were suspended and locked up in the quarter guard. "I have ordered inquiry against them. If found guilty, they will be terminated from the service," he said.
Haji Liaqat Shah Afridi, 55, told Dawn that he was travelling in a passenger bus to reach his residence in Hayatabad. When the bus reached Qila Balahisar stop, a young man in black clothes boarded the bus and came towards him, he said. "That person pointed a pistol at me and disembarked me from the bus by force," Mr Afridi said.
He said that two coppers of rider squad were waiting for him at the stop. "One of the coppers pointed his official AK-47 rifle at my back and said repeatedly that they were ordered to shoot me," he said.
Mr Afridi, a businessman of gemstones, said that he told the coppers that he was neither a criminal nor wanted in any case but one of them shouted at him and threatened to shoot him down if he continued to argue.
He alleged that both the coppers started searching his pockets and took away Rs50,000 and a cellular phone set worth Rs27,000 from him. After depriving him of valuables, he said, the coppers told him that he should be thankful to them for not killing him because they could get Rs1 million as reward for his killing.
Mr Afridi said that after the incident, he went to Khan Razik cop shoppe and informed SHO Sattar Khattak about it. "The SHO and I came to the same place in a police van where both the coppers were standing while their third colleague, who was in plain clothes, was missing. The workers of a nearby hotel also supported my claim and told the SHO that they saw me with the coppers," he claimed.
Mr Afridi said that despite identifying the officials and hearing statements of the witnesses, police were yet to register FIR against their colleagues.
The SHO, when contacted, said that the coppers, who robbed the senior citizen were identified as Mohammad Shah and Kalimullah.
Sources said that the immediate boss of Mohammad Shah and Kalimullah had already brought into the notice of his high-ups that both of them were involved in various crimes but no action was taken against them.
"Primarily because of what is happening in Iran Syria which is experiencing little turbulence. So I bloody phueching well know guess it is better. I am sure they must be better informed about the situation.."
When asked why the decision was taken so late, he said, "We were waved off These things can happen anytime and timing is everything. We can cannot predict. So it is better to carefully follow instructions be cautious."
