RESOURCE – Crime Maps

LAPD crime mapFeel like taking a stroll around the block in your finest diamonds but curious about the safety of your neighborhood? While I wouldn’t exactly recommend it as the definitive source, if you plug your address into the LAPD Crime Maps interface, you’ll see an interesting view of some of the stuff that went down in your hood over the last week. Diamond heists generally included.

EveryBlock is another site that’s possibly more thorough, although it seems to work better when you list an intersection instead of an exact address.


PSA – Your Dog Is Cool

saddog
It’s been awfully hot lately, so this is just a little reminder… please leave your dog safely at home instead of in your car. A Stanford University study shows that even on comparatively cool days, such as 72 degrees, a car’s internal temperature will rocket to 116 degrees within 60 minutes. And contrary to rumor, keeping the windows open a crack hardly slows the rise at all.

Think the weather might be cool enough to risk leaving Spot for a little bit? Well before you leave the house, plug your zipcode into MY DOG IS COOL.com to find out whether or not you’re right. Right now, you probably aren’t. Just know, accidentally sending your dog to heaven will send you directly to jail.
