A controversial move to cut traffic deaths in one of LA's beachside communities will be undone. Playa Del Rey removed lanes from three roads to reduce speeding and collisions earlier this year as part of a pilot program that's been called a "road diet." But residents pushed back. Now, LA Councilmember Mike Bonin says the pilot program is over and the lanes will be restored. That's made residents unhappy too.
The hashtag #MeToo has become a rallying cry for survivors of sexual assault. It started Sunday in response to the latest accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Since then, thousands have taken to social media to raise awareness about an issue that's all too pervasive. Now, the #MeToo movement has made its way to Sacramento. On Tuesday, female lawmakers, lobbyists, and staffers signed an open letter calling out "dehumanizing behavior by men with power."
In Northern California, wildfires have burned hundreds of thousands of acres. Thirty one people have died. Many more are missing. Thousands of homes and businesses have been destroyed.

Its owner, Ray Signorello Jr. spoke to Take Two. I've had a few days to process it. I saw the pictures.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
