As Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young once sang on their 1970 "Déjà Vu" album, Clay, the Dog and I decide to "carry on"... and to find every leashless dog beach between LA and the Mexican border.

Never Once Have I Imagined My Daughters Ever Going To Prison

Russell Simmons | September 17, 2014 | Politics
In the state of California, we now spend $62,300 per prison inmate per year while only $9,200 to educate a child in a K-12 school. If that statistic doesn't disturb you, consider this: Since 1984, the state has built 22 state prisons while only one new University of California school.

Much Ado About Theatrics: 'Django Unchained' Actress Gets to Follow the Rules Too

Kimberly Cooper | September 17, 2014 | Los Angeles
I'll be the first person in a dogfight to throw down for equal justice and constitutional rights under the law for all people. But I'm afraid this latest example of alleged racism and discrimination by the LAPD plays more as a reenactment of the boy, or in this case, girl who cried wolf.

In Praise Of The Upright Bike

Brent Toderian | September 16, 2014 | Canada British Columbia
There are many other policy implications that come with the spread of slower, safer city bikes -- here in B.C., a big one is around mandatory helmet laws. Many such laws were passed at a time when fast, forward-leaning cycling was the norm, and safe bike infrastructure was virtually non-existent. When drifting along at a walking pace, in an upright position, on a dedicated cycle track, the notion of legally requiring head protection certainly changes.

Environmental Injustice is Personal

Nikki Silvestri | September 17, 2014 | Green
I used to be one of those people who didn't understand the threat of climate change. I wondered, "Why should global warming matter to me?" When I learned what a warmer world would look like -- especially for people of color and low-income communities -- I was terrified.

Weekend at Berman's: This Artweek.LA (September 15, 2014)

Bill Bush | September 16, 2014 | Arts
Between his seminal omnipresence on the modern LA scene and more than two decades of the legendary Santa Monica Auctions, people might think they already know everything about Robert Berman. But there is always much more to the story.

Blue Cities Have a Sustainable Relationship with Oceans

Jared Green | September 17, 2014 | Green
We, as humans, have a deep, biophilic connection to the oceanscape, which makes up 70 percent of the face of the Earth and contains 97 percent of its water. That connection is essential to building a more "complementary, mutually sustainable relationship between city and ocean."

Growing Up in Iran With Howard Stern

Pegah Patra | September 16, 2014 | Entertainment
Some people here might not appreciate how blessed they are, because they've never lived in a repressed society, but, for me, every time I tune in to Howard Stern -- I think of how lucky I am to live where freedom and liberty exist, especially for women.

Ali Rosen | September 16, 2014 | Taste
Octopus has become a restaurant standard on menus across the country and across cuisines. But for the home cook it still remains a bit of a mystery. Questions abound about where to purchase octopus; how to properly prep it; and how to actually cook it.

Kate Kelly | September 15, 2014 | Los Angeles
Over 1 million outdoor cats roam Los Angeles -- a statistic not known to most people because feral or stray cats are good at finding places to tuck themselves away so the public never senses the magnitude of the problem.

20th Anniversary Review of the Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Ready to Die,' by a 2Pac Fan

Tony Delerme | September 15, 2014 | Black Voices
After listening to Ready to Die from beginning to end, I realized how much of a fool I was to have been blind to this album for so many years. To simply call it a classic and leave it at that would be an understatement.
