Risks you face when driving alongside semi-trucks

On December 26, 2018, a minivan collided with a semi-truck on the 110 Freeway in South Los Angeles, injuring three people. The front of the vehicle crumpled and split, pinning the driver who later had to be cut free.

This frightening accident is a clear reminder for drivers everywhere that semi-trucks do not operate like other cars or vans, and they require special attention on the road. When you are driving near semi-trucks or any big rigs, it is important to remember the dangers they present.

Can California become the nation's most bicycle friendly state?

California is known for many things: Grapes, redwood trees, the golden gate bridge and increasingly, being bicycle friendly. California now ranks as the third most bicycle friendly state in the nation, the only state in the top five that improved its performance since 2012.

Being bicycle friendly brings many benefits to both the state and its residents. More people on bicycles means increased fitness and reduced health care spending, fewer automobile crashes, less demand for foreign oil, fewer cars wearing down the roads, increased tourism, etc.

Just a month before the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage, a Gallup poll revealed that 60 percent of Americans supported same-sex marriage. As of today, roughly 67 percent support LGBTQ friends and family.

With the growing support, however, why do nearly half of surveyed LGBTQ employees hide their true sexual orientation at work?

As the new year begins and you have a fresh new batch of vacation days, the urge to travel can be undeniable. When you think about the options for seeing the world, a cruise can be a fun and economical choice.

A cruise gives you the opportunity to see visit multiple locations while letting someone else do the "driving." What you many not know is that there are a surprising number of people who fall into the ocean while on cruises. If you are considering a cruise this winter and worry about safety, here are some things to keep in mind:

Are cloudy headlight covers putting you at risk?

Are you dreaming of a new car with the latest technology and safety features? While having Apple Car Play and ventilated seats is certainly nice, nothing beats the comfort of knowing that your car has all the best safety features: lane departure awareness, blind spot detection, airbag technology, automatic braking, etc.

While these technology-based safety features are great, one of the most important safety features is much more old-school and cost-effective: new headlight covers.

Are you looking for a romantic date night idea?

It's not too early to start planning for Valentine's Day. It offers a great excuse to get out of the house and try something new. Of course, dinner and a movie is fine, but what if you are in the mood for something different?

It can be fun to get the adrenaline pumping now and again. However, some activities might require some additional training or may be better left to professionals. While you and your date may agree to try something a little on the edge, make sure you end your evening at home, rather than the hospital.

The chances are good that if you are reading this, you use some sort of location tracking device. Tracking devices include smartphones, smart watches, fitness trackers, smart glasses and the list goes on. While there are many advantages to these heavily used devices, there are also disadvantages.

With one in six Americans using some form of wearable technology and nearly every adult using a smartphone, it is critical that we appreciate the implications of this data collection on our daily life.

Over the past century, working conditions in the U.S. have come a long way. This is thanks in large part to workers banding together to force change. Despite improvements, too many workers still face abuse while at work. Often, that abuse comes at the hands of their fellow coworkers.

Abuse, in any form, and of any severity can wreak havoc on a victim's life. To put an end to workplace abuse, it's important to recognize it and its many forms. Here are just three of the ways that abuse can occur at work:

Can you relate to this woman's case of pregnancy discrimination?

It's another rags-to-riches story. Once a single, working mom, Lynda Resnick is a self-made billionaire and co-owner of The Wonderful Company, which sells special food items. Like so many women, she faced many challenges in her 74 years because of her gender.

Early in 2018, hosts of a female empowerment conference in Los Angeles welcomed Resnick to the stage. There, she discussed how few leadership opportunities there are for women. She stressed how important the #MeToo movement has been in bringing the lasting problem of workplace sexual harassment to the national stage. However, it is ironic that Resnick now faces a complaint from a female employee alleging discrimination.
