Top Things You Can do in San Diego, California

San Diego's coastal seat causes it to be an ideal destination for adventurers. Whether you're trekking across the sandstone cliffs of Torrey Pines State Reserve or walking through the frothy surf of Coronado Beach, you'll locate little reason to stray far from the natural wonders in the city. Spend a day at Balboa Park -- the authoritative culturual hub in the city -- and soak up the spectacular setting while exploring the many museums, gardens and theaters that call this 1,200-acre park house. Though it's tempting to spend your entire vacation exploring, don't forget to carve out some time for a San Diego history lesson: America's Finest City proudly shows off its military and maritime heritage with two well-seen (and exceptionally interactive) museums.
While a day at the beach is practically obligatory here, enjoyable activities to do in San Diego additionally contain going to the world-renowned zoo, hiking Torrey Pines State Reserve, and meandering through sensory pleasing farmers markets in virtually every neighborhood. San Diego amusement parks also abound, ranging from the oceanfront rides at Belmont Park in Mission Beach to LEGOLAND in North County. Cap off any day with dinner at La Jolla Shores in the Gaslamp District or a sunset cocktail. You will discover that San Diego has tasks up its sleeve for all kinds of visitors.

Why baboon males resort to domestic violence

Why baboon males resort to domestic violence | Breaking News | Scoop.it
Some baboon males vying for a chance to father their own offspring expedite matters in a gruesome way -- they kill infants sired by other males and attack pregnant females, causing them to miscarry, researchers report. Infanticide has been documented in other animals including baboons, lions and dolphins, but rarely feticide. The perpetrators are more prone to commit domestic violence when forced to move into a group with few fertile females, the study finds.
