The LA Police Commission has set a new policy for LAPD officers to treat the homeless with more compassion and empathy. Then, a growing slice of charitable giving is happening through Donor-Advised Funds, or DAFs. But not everyone thinks that’s good for charities. Tesla wants to buy SolarCity for $2.8 billion, despite the fact that SolarCity could lose up to $400 million next year. Also, Yaa Gyasi talks about her new book “Homegoing.” And VidCon, the annual confab of online video stars and the people who love them, starts Thursday at the Anaheim Convention Center.
