Northern Italy (including Cinque Terre)
Introduced as a new itinerary last year, the 10-day Northern Italy Including Cinque Terre is great for regular Italy travelers looking to explore cities not included on other itineraries. Starting and ending in Milan, this trip take guests to the heart of each northern city, stopping in Baveno, Genoa, Santa Margherita, La Spezia, Parma, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cinque Terre. This trip has something for everyone, whether a lover of flowers or food. Horticulturists will be happy to stop at the beautiful botanical gardens of Villa Taranto on the way to Baveno, where they'll also enjoy lunch and free time to explore. The north is known for its incredible cuisine and foodies will delight in a trip to the Museum of Prosciutto and the Museo del Parmigiano-Reggiano in Parma. The highlight of the trip, however, is a full-day at picturesque Cinque Terre, where guests will visit two of the hillside villages only accessible by boat or train.

Great Italian Cities
The 11-day Great Italian Cities is the ideal trip for travellers looking for a relaxed-pace journey to three of Italy's favourite cities. Spending 3 nights each in Rome, Florence and Venice, this At Leisure itinerary gives guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in their destination without the rush of several more travel days. After a day of seeing all the major sights in Roma, guests receive a full day of leisure to explore the city on their own, whether it's a visit to one of the city's many museums or just sipping cappuccinos at a cafe and enjoying the Italian lifestyle. Next is Florence, where the group gets a day of sightseeing with a Local Guide, including the multi-colored marble Duomo and Ponte Vecchio. Following an included excursion to Pisa, guests are treated to a Be My Guest dinner at Villa Calcinaia in Greve in Chianti. In beautiful Venice, guests cruise the canals with a local guide before a Small-Group Sightseeing trip through the city's narrow streets.

Grand Italian Experience
For the most extensive Italy experience, travelers can book the 17-day Grand Italian Experience, which starts and ends in historical Rome and spans the country from north to south. Spending 3 nights in Rome, guests skip the lines with their Local Guide at the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica, as well as the famous Colosseum. With stops in Sorrento, Assisi, Pompeii and Alberobello, this itinerary also takes guests beyond the major sights and busy areas of the big cities. Once in Sorrento, guests enjoy a cruise to the Isle of Capri where they'll get a walking tour and free time to explore the picturesque island. That night it's back to Sorrento to sit down to a special home cooked Be My Guest dinner at the Esposito family house, which sits amongst a hilltop lemon grove, overlooking the town below. Two nights are spent in Santa Margherita, where guests will have a full day of free time to explore the colorful town on the Italian Riviera as well as a cruise to the renowned resort of Portofino. Other highlights include a guided walking tour of Pompeii's excavation and a stop at the charming medieval city of Siena to see the Piazza del Campo, scene of the annual Palio horse races.

Stanford researchers use solar power to study elephants in Africa

Stanford researchers use solar power to study elephants in Africa
A team of elephant researchers from Stanford University has transformed a remote corner of southern Africa into a high-tech field camp run entirely on sunlight. The seasonal solar-powered research camp gives scientists a rare opportunity to quietly observe, videotape and photograph wild elephants at Mushara waterhole, an isolated oasis in Etosha National Park in Namibia. "One of the really special aspects of solar energy is that it allows us to be in this incredibly remote area that's closed to tourists and is off the grid," said lead researcher Caitlin O'Connell-Rodwell, ...

Foster kids do equally well when adopted by gay, lesbian or heterosexual parents

High-risk children adopted from foster care do equally well when placed with gay, lesbian or heterosexual parents, UCLA psychologists report in the first multi-year study of children adopted by these three groups of parents.

The age of the children ranged from 4 months to 8 years, with an average age of ...

How to prove a sexual addiction

The idea that an individual might suffer from a sexual addiction is great fodder for radio talk shows, comedians and late night TV. But a sex addiction is no laughing matter. Relationships are destroyed, jobs are lost, lives ruined. Yet psychiatrists have been reluctant to accept the idea of out-of-control sexual behavior as a mental health disorder because of the lack of scientific evidence. Now a UCLA-led team of experts has tested a proposed set of criteria to define "hypersexual disorder," also known as sexual addiction, as a new mental health condition. Rory ...

Taking race out of the equation in measuring women's risk of osteoporosis and fractures

For women of mixed racial or ethnic backgrounds, a new method for measuring bone health may improve the odds of correctly diagnosing their risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures, according to a UCLA-led study. Currently, assessing osteoporosis and the risk of fractures from small accidents like falls requires a bone density scan. But because these scans don't provide other relevant fracture-related information, such as bone size and the amount of force a bone is subjected to during a fall, each patient's bone density is examined against a national database of people ...
