NEW YORK – When Leslie Miley posted an article critiquing Twitter’s diversity failings, he thought only a few friends and former colleagues would notice. But the ex-Twitter engineer’s post went viral: It sparked an apology from Twitter three days later. It also spurred a much-needed conversation around diversity efforts. Oh, and it led to a…

Facebook seemed like a good idea when it started back in 2004; but I’m not so sure anymore. I can’t imagine that Zukerberg ever dreamed his software application would create such a stir with its lengthy tentacles reaching the world’s corners and consumers far and wide.
What it means to lend a “Helping Hand.” Typically when asked for a favor by a close friend or family member, the word “Yes” escapes our mouths before the daunting question of “How? What? When? Where? And Why?” However when a charity or non-profit asks, it seem that most people try to prolong and avoid an answer; but why? Some may see it as an inconvenience,…
Early in “Straight White Men,” the very entertaining new play written and directed by Young Jean Lee at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City, the play’s titular siblings chance upon the home-made board game their mother had made them play when they were children, called “Privilege.”
Crudely adapted from a cast-off Monopoly set, the game flips that game’s materialism in an attempt to sensitize the boys to the special rights and benefits they were born with as straight white males. Upon drawing an “Excuses” card, one of the brothers reads aloud, “What I just said wasn't racist/sexist/homophobic because I was joking. Pay $50 to an LGBT organization.” (A line that drew one of many big laughs from the packed preview crowd, this Sunday.)
The three brothers have all…Continue

Zagat reminds us that "Oh, of course, helped bring kimchi rice balls and galbi sausages to the masses via the Seoul Sausage truck and now two brick-and-mortar locations, and this is his dream spot for doing more traditional, although contemporary, Korean barbecue in a very hip, slick space."
Citing the restaurant's high-end ingredients and gold-plated grills, Zagat continues:
This is more high-end than the everyday Korean barbecue spots, and more in line with places like Genwa …
