    I'm very moved by the Black Lives Matter movement and was disappointed to learn how much harder it is for black-owned businesses in the US.

    Local Donations with Low Overhead

    I'm looking to donate cash to a local organization that's helping during the pandemic, but want to choose one that has a relatively low overhead where the majority of money would go to those in need and not for the organization's expenses. Does anyone have recommendations?

    Cockroach Prevention

    Hi edhat readers, I need some advice. I've lived in Santa Barbara for over 30 years in a variety of homes and I have never seen a cockroach. I've been renting a small 1930's cottage for the past 2 years and just in the last few months I've seen 3 cockroaches.

    My house is very clean but because it's old, there are numerous cracks and a general lack of insulation. I've only seen these in the bathroom and kitchen at night. Do I have an infestation or are these a few stragglers, and how do I get rid of them for good?

    Lawyer to Litigate Against City

    I was hoping to inquire the Edhat community about finding a good lawyer. My particular situation would involve litigation against the city, specifically in regards to an unethical workplace where emotional distress occurs and illegal activity happens. As is obvious, I'm not certain which type of litigator can take on my case, which does concern itself with discrimination, nepotism, drug use by fellow employees, amongst other complaints and concerns. Just FYI, I am not the only person (as in, city employee) willing to sue.
