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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
While in Los Angeles if you wish to experience the full range of mouth-watering treasures and pleasures of living in abundance, try the minestrone soup at Milo and Olive.
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.

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.
This morning I sent an email to our HuffPost team, sharing the news of a major milestone for our company -- one that really struck a chord with me. And you, the members of the HuffPost community, are the heart and soul of this milestone. Whether you have blogged on HuffPost, commented on, shared or talked about a story or just made us a regular part of your media diet, you have been a key part of the conversation we set out to start a little over nine years ago. Indeed, without you, there would be no HuffPost. So thank you for being part of this remarkable journey -- a journey that is still very much in progress. Here is the email I sent to our team.

Meatless Mondays and Wheatless Wednesdays were encouraged and many Americans had their first vegetarian meal.
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.
Taking away the power to forbid same-sex marriage frees people from lots of government interference. In reality, what so many assume is perfectly backwards. Marriage reduces state interference in a person's life; it does not increase it.

Ostensibly a bill to strengthen safety regulation of oil refineries, SB 1300 would eviscerate the state's freedom of information law. The original version of this legislation required oil companies to file reports on scheduled shutdowns, typically for maintenance, of their refinery facilities. So far, no problem. Then came last-minute amendments
If it takes a law that scares the hell out of people to force them to have productive conversations about consent, rape-culture and victim-blaming at a dinner party or more importantly with their sons and daughters, then I say, "yes," to Yes means Yes!
Abused as a child. Bullied. Raised by a terrorist. These are true facts about the life of Zak Ebrahim. Here's another one: Today, Zak tours the world as an advocate for tolerance and peace. Watch his remarkable story, and ask yourself: What does it take to choose nonviolence?
The day when we all eventually do age is real, is out there, is waiting for each and every one of us. It comes even when you feel younger than your years, even when you truly believe that age is just a number and that you are only as old as you feel.
