You see these signs on any building that contains hazardous chemicals. The sign is called an NFPA panel. NFPA stands for National Fire Protection Association.
The idea behind these signs is to give firefighters some sort of advanced notice on what they are getting themselves into when they arrive at the scene of a fire. When there is a house fire, firefighters have a pretty good idea of what they are in for, but if there is a fire at a warehouse in an industrial park, it is very hard to know what chemicals might be stored there. The NFPA panel is a clear indication of what sort of dangers might lie inside.
The panel has four…

Do you like smoked salmon? How about "A smoked salmon plate complete with caper berries, pickled cabbage, cream cheese, and two slices of flavor-dense and generously buttered rye toast." Well, if your answer is 'God Yes,' then Los Angeles Magazine recommends Lodge Bread in West Culver City.
The magazine named Lodge Bread's smoked salmon dish their "Bite of the Week" this week, saying:
This represents a paradigm shift in the smoked-fish-on-toast game. Normally, the bread in this scenario acts as a basic sponge, something neutral to hold the fish so you don’t have to scrub the ocean smell out of your hands later (no one wants to be the “dude, you smell like fish” person in the office). But with the dark, dense, and intensely seeded rye, you’re…
