One of the best things about living in your own home is the freedom of having a personal space where you can relax and let loose. To some people, that means walking around naked. But what happens if you are in your own home in the nude and another person sees? Could you face charges for committing lewd acts in public under PC a? Under California Penal Code Section a , it is illegal to solicit or engage in lewd acts in public or in a place readily in view of the public. To be convicted under PC a , the prosecution must prove that you willfully engaged in a lewd act for the purpose of sexual gratification, sexual deviancy or to offend another person.
Amusement park rides may be fun, but their regulation is no laughing matter. The Building and Construction Authority BCA of Singapore regulates amusement ride safety through the Act, including installation, operation, modification, maintenance and repair of amusement rides. Before each ride is open to the public, BCA engineers work with the operator to ensure that rides comply with safety standards. BCA also conducts "mystery shopper" inspections to ensure that standards are maintained. Minister of National Development Khaw Boon Wan announced in a blog post on Friday that the Act has been revised to ""meet new safety standards, respond to new incidents and keep pace with introduction of new rides". Additionally, the Act will also extend to amusement rides in private clubs and private residential estates. You may be in your own home, but that does not mean you can swan around naked.

My apartment on the top floor of a Brooklyn co-op faces a courtyard. A resident on the opposite side of the courtyard complained to management that I have been spotted naked in my apartment. The neighbor must see me early in the morning when I go to the kitchen to boil water. The waist-high window has curtains pulled back at the bottom around a plant on the sill, and the courtyard is about feet across. This person must be working pretty hard to catch this view.
