Three coronavirus cases reported at church fighting county’s pandemic rules

Los Angeles County health officials this week confirmed that three cases of COVID-19 have been reported at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley. The church has been in a legal battle with the county over the health order, which bars indoor worship services. A judge issued an order requiring the church to stop holding such services, but the church has been defying that order, and it could be held in contempt at a court hearing next month.

Offsetting Your Flights

I realize that most of us are not flying much these days, but I am confident that we will return to flying when the pandemic is over and when we do, we should offset the carbon footprints of our flights. The Gotham Gal and I have been doing this for the last five years. Here are two good ways to do that: Project Wren – this is a USV portfolio company and with their Flight Logger you can log all of your flights and offset them with afforestation programs.

How bike shops kept up with America's 121% spike in demand

Business Insider stopped by the Linus Bike warehouse in Los Angeles and State Bicycle's shop in Tempe, Arizona, to see how the compa...
