Top Hikes In California: Malibu Creek State Park Features M*A*S*H & South Pacific Film Set Locations

From a Curbed Los Angeles online article:

Malibu Creek State Park photo by Tanja EbnerHikes in Malibu Creek State Park have Hollywood connections, as the park includes areas that were used to shoot M*A*S*H and South Pacific. Though the area was hit by the Woolsey fire, there are still some (scorched) rusted Army Jeeps and other signs of filming here, making for a nice photo op.

Because of the fire, the park was briefly closed, but it reopened earlier this month. (The campground remains closed, according to the park’s official website, due to an ongoing investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.) Since the landscape is recovering from a devastating wildfire, do take extra care to stay on the existing trails.

New Health Studies: Alzheimer’s Disease Rates Are Higher For Women Than Men Ages 45 And 65

From and NPR Health News article:

Estimated Lifetime Risk for Alzheimer's Dementia by Sex Ages 45 and 65Scientists are beginning to understand why Alzheimer’s disease affects more women than men and why the disease seems to progress more quickly in women’s brains.

The explanation appears to involve social, biological and genetic differences, researchers reported Tuesday at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Los Angeles.

One study looked at sex differences involving a toxic protein called tau, which tends to spread like an infection through the brains of people with Alzheimer’s.

Road Trip: Peak’s Island, ME Is Kayaker’s Paradise, “Wild & Rocky Coastline” Two Hours From Boston

From a Boston Magazine article:

Peak’s Island, ME PHOTO BY TRENT BELLDifferent Strokes | If the idea of wearing a tank top seems profoundly depressing, skip the sports club in favor of an upper-body workout that’ll replace the reflection in the gym mirror with a view of Maine’s wild and rocky coast. And thankfully, there’s little exertion in getting there. Drive up Friday night; stay at Portland’s Regency Hotel (two hours from Boston); then catch the nearby ferry at 9:15 a.m. to Peaks Island, where the affable staff of Maine Island Kayak Company will escort you to a kayaker’s paradise. After an introductory paddling course, a primer on the vagaries of ocean weather, and some disclaimers, you’re ready to slide into a single-person sea kayak and head for open water.

Travel Technology: “HipCamp” Website Offers More Than 300,000 Campsites Nearest You

From

By the numbers, Hipcamp is impressive. With more than 300,000 sites available, it claims to be the largest resource of its kind in the United States. That number includes public park campsites and private campgrounds, making it easy to zero in on the site that fits your needs. Most impressive are the niche options available for specific types of camping. Hipcamp curates lists for lake camping, beach camping, pet-friendly campsites, and glamping (glamour camping) options. Like Airbnb, many of Hipcamp’s sites are unique and destination-worthy in their own right like this off-grid tiny cabin in Oregon, California’s The Sanctuary Treehouse, and this rustic campsite on a vineyard in Minnesota.

Boomers Home Income : “RentTheBackyard.com” Will Build & Rent Studio Apartment For You

From a TechCrunch.com online article:

RentTheBackyard LogoRent the Backyard  works with a partner to build the apartment, finances the construction, lists the property, selects the tenant, collects the rent and serves as the landlord. In exchange for all that, it has an ownership stake in the unit and keeps 50% of the rent.

The startup also handles the permitting, which co-founder Spencer Burleigh said has become much easier with recent changes in California law. In fact, he pointed to stories about how these changes have led to skyrocketing applications (16 in 2016, 350 in 2018) to build “in-law” units in San Jose, which is where the startup is focused for now.
