Hey L.A., on 10/10/10 Come Out and Play at CicLAvia

Celebrate a car-free Los Angeles on 10/10/10 at CicLAvia.

We're looking forward the big Global Work Party on 10/10/10, a day to celebrate climate solutions. And one of the solutions we're most looking forward to is car-free streets in Los Angeles. If you're anywhere near Los Angeles, come out and play at CicLAvia.

Seven and a half miles of streets will be car-free from 10 AM - 3 PM on Sunday October 10th 2010. The streets will be safe for people to walk, skate, play and ride a bike. There will be activities along the route. Shop owners and restaurants are encouraged to open their doors to people along the CicLAvia.

A Ciclovía is not just for recreation. It is social integration.

Be there or be somewhere a heck of a lot less cool. (A special shout out to our friend, and GOOD alum, Jenn Su, who is one of the wonderful people helping bring CicLAvia to L.A.'s streets.)

But it turns out, Free the Nipple might be fighting on the wrong front and should be focusing on freeing the nipple in a place you'd never expect. Your own home.

A woman in Utah is facing criminal charges for not wearing a shirt in her house, with prosecutors arguing that women's chests are culturally considered lewd.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
