Moreover, the Great Recession had exposed seri...

Dreaming about ‘normal’ restaurant dining in the San Fernando Valley

The coronavirus pandemic forced the closure of Los Angeles area restaurants back on March 15. Like most of us, I haven’t had an in-restaurant dining experience ever since. Oh, I’ve gotten takeout — lots and lots of takeout. And I’m grateful for that. But honestly, I miss the joy of sitting in a restaurant, observing the rituals of the kitchen and the dining room, spying on my fellow diners and … enjoying a meal. I’ve spent my life eating for a living. There are weeks when I dine out for breakfas...

The biggest companies no longer advertising on Facebook due to the platform's lack of hate-speech moderation

Civil rights organizations including NAACP, Color of Change, Anti-Defamation League, and Sleeping Giants asked advertisers to stop paying for advertisements on Facebook in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. Since Floyd's death, Facebook has allowed posts in which Trump called protesters "thugs" and suggested violence when he wrote, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided not to take action in removing the c...

Open, closed, or doing takeout: What’s going on with restaurant chains

When restrictions begin in mid-March, most attempted to shift their business to takeout and delivery, but some shut down entirely with the intention of reopening when the situation improved.
