Top Things You Can do in San Diego, California

San Diego's coastal seat helps it be a perfect destination for adventurers. Whether you are hiking over the sandstone cliffs of Torrey Pines State Reserve or walking through the frothy surf of Coronado Beach, you'll locate little reason to wander far in the city's natural wonders. Spend a day at Balboa Park -- the city's definitive culturual heart -- and soak up the stunning setting while exploring the countless museums, theaters and gardens that call this 1,200-acre park home. Though it's tempting to spend your whole holiday researching, 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-regarded (and exceptionally interactive) museums.
While a day at the beach is virtually obligatory here, fun things you can do in San Diego also contain going to with the world-renowned zoo, hiking Torrey Pines State Reserve, and meandering through sensory pleasing farmers markets in nearly every neighborhood. San Diego amusement parks also abound, including the oceanfront rides at Belmont Park in Mission Beach to LEGOLAND in North County. Cap in the Gaslamp District or a sunset cocktail off any day with dinner at La Jolla Shores. You will find that San Diego has activities up its sleeve for several kinds of visitors.

Occupational therapy may have the potential to slow down functional decline and reduce behavioral troubles | Healthcare | Scoop.it
A French observational study in real life showed that dementia patients benefiting from occupational therapy sessions report relevant clinical benefits over the intervention period, according to a research study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease this month. The research suggested the influence of occupational therapy on reducing behavioral troubles, caregivers' burden and amount of informal care over the intervention period and a stabilization over the 3-months period thereafter.

They found that this form of regulation, a chemical modification on RNA called m6A, is also important in influencing whether flies become male or female. This study clearly shows that RNA modifications play an important role.

Triggering the brain's auto-focus | Healthcare | Scoop.it
Environmental cues don't just trigger actions, like reaching for our phones when they buzz; they can also trigger our brains to enter a more focused state. Duke University researchers combined brain imaging with a celebrity naming game to pinpoint the structure in the brain responsible for forming these links between stimuli and focus. This structure, called the caudate nucleus, is also known to play an important role in linking motor actions to their consequences.

Researchers identify potentially druggable mutant p53 proteins that promote cancer growth

Researchers identify potentially druggable mutant p53 proteins that promote cancer growth | Healthcare | Scoop.it
Scientists have focused on certain p53 mutations that generate mutant proteins that promote cancer growth and metastasis. The variants studied are truncated -- they lack half of the domains, or units, of the full-length p53 protein, which enable full-length p53 to enter the cell nucleus and bind DNA, essential in its normal tumor-suppressor function. The truncated mutants act by perturbing mitochondrial function, the team proposes.
