Mild weather can seem deceptively safe, but it is not. In less than 30 minutes, the temperature inside a car can rise more than 30 degrees higher than the temperature outside. This is true even if car windows are cracked open or the car is parked in the shade. Dogs can't cool themselves down as easily as we can, and once they overheat, they can suffer serious organ damage and die.
Farm labor -- feeding America and much of the world -- is honorable and important work. Farmworkers shouldn't risk death or illness from extreme heat when reasonable measures can easily prevent such tragedies. Enforcement of these protections will improve through joint efforts by the state of California and the UFW as a result of the settlement of this lawsuit.
Around the global south, cities struggle to provide electricity and energy to all their residents, and unsurprisingly, the poorest residents are most likely to remain disconnected from formal power systems. Many of the same cities also face an immense garbage challenge: what to do with overwhelming amounts of unsanitary and even toxic waste.
The one guy for the Spurs who can change this series is Kawhi Leonard -- nobody else on the roster can defend LeBron James that well. But what Leonard did in Game 3 was not only bother James (22 points and seven turnovers) as well as force him to use screens for offense, but also completely take over the game offensively. Leonard -- who, ironically, hails from Los Angeles and went unrecruited by the LA schools before going to San Diego State -- scored a career-high 29 points on 10-13 shooting.
