Kennedy International Airport in New York City  — who arrive from Wuhan, China, where the virus was believed to have originated. The CDC said it would be adding screening centers at two more airports this week — in Atlanta and Chicago.

As homeless count launches, LA County OKs urgent new action plan

Faced with the possibility of rising numbers of homeless people across the LA County, the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday,  approved an “urgent” effort to beef up the county’s ability to deal with the crisis. After a robust discussion and public comment on a problem that has left more than 60,000 people without a home in the county, the board greenlighted a “roadmap” that Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas said could streamline the ability to house people across from the San Gabriel Valley to the South Bay to the San Fernando Valley. The board’s action allows the county to prioritize parts of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s recent plan to get people off the streets, and would ultimately beef up the capacity of county departments that are already trying to do that. And it would make the county more accountable for doing so. It aims to increase LA County’s ability to crack down on rent gouging, provide legal defense during evictions, make housing the homeless easier and secure more funding to treat mentally and physically ill people. “We accept that we have a crisis on hour hands that warrants…

Ousted Recording Academy CEO Files Federal Discrimination Complaint

Share this article:Days after being placed on administrative leave, Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Tuesday. The complaint contends that Dugan was placed on leave in retaliation for a December email to the academy’s human resources manager alleging “egregious conflicts of interest, improper self-dealing by board members and voting irregularities with respect to nominations for Grammy Awards, all made possible by the `boys’ club’ mentality and approach to governance at the academy.” Dugan’s email also alleged that she was subjected to sexual harassment last year by the academy’s general counsel, according to the complaint. She also claimed she had been pressured by the board to hire former academy CEO Neil Portnow — who stepped down under fire for a much-derided comment about female artists — as a consultant for $750,000. According to the complaint, a copy of which was published by The Wrap, Dugan was placed on leave last Thursday, three weeks after sending her email. The academy also issued a “false and defamatory” explanation that the move was in response to a misconduct complaint against…
