Best writing cafes: The Huffington Post has a list of L.A.'s best cafes for writing. Here's more from blogger Deborah Schoeneman:

"After two years of embedded research, I've come up with a list of the best cafes to work. I feel a little guilty about spreading it around in case they get overrun, so promise to play by the rules if you show up."

Desalination plant: KPCC reports the Los Angeles Conservation Corps' Redondo Beach lab is getting a desalination plant:

The demonstration project by the West Basin Municipal Water District, expected to open this fall, is part of an initiative to reduce the amount of imported water in the South Bay from 66% to 33% by 2020.

Living in Maricopa: Neon Tommy has an interesting video about Maricopa, a small town in Kern County. Here's the intro:

Residents of Maricopa, Calif. have only one store to buy food in town and that is at a gas station. Watch … to find how this condition affects residents' lives and why the rural city has not had significantly more business for decades.
