We’re launching our gentrification project about the Highland Park neighborhood in Los Angeles. Use the hashtag #GentrificationIs on Twitter and Instagram to show how your neighborhood is changing. Plus, one option under consideration for keeping the government running beyond Dec. 11? Congress could pass an omnibus spending bill that would solve the problem for only nine months and affect every agency except the Department of Homeland Security, which would be kept on a shorter funding leash. Finally, Facebook makes a money grab by making small businesses and certain political outfits pay for things they used to get for free.
