If the 4th of July fireworks spectacular did not quench your thirst for explosions of color and music, you’re in luck! Back – literally – by popular demand, SeaWorld San Diego will be resuming their summertime fireworks starting at 9:50 pm every Saturday through August 31st. After putting a hold on their annual summer fireworks show, a petition including 11,000 signatures helped convince SeaWorld to bring back their nighttime display. Along with this returning show, don’t miss out on giving your summer a jolt along with the new Electric Eel launched roller coaster and Electric Ocean nighttime display.

Make that Driveway Pay You
New to San Diego, the app ‘Driveway’ brings residents ways to both rent their empty driveways while they are away or grab a spot when street parking is playing a disappearing act. The Boulder, CO-based ‘Driveway’ lets residents rent their spaces for $10/hr and set windows within which they would like to make the spaces available to ‘Drivewayz’ users. The app can allow users to schedule spot reservations in advance to ensure worry-free parking for all occasions. Currently only available on iOS, ‘Drivewayz’ is looking to expand to Android platforms in the near future as it increases its popularity.

Leading the Future of Cancer Treatment
Researchers at UC San Diego’s School of Medicine have found a protein that is responsible for the survival and uncontrolled growth of cancerous tumor cells. By identifying this enzyme, LPCAT1, researchers have now provided key information to the cancer research community on a potential new target for anti-cancer drugs. With sights on new drug targets, this research could facilitate more selective therapies, benefitting patients with more effective treatments for a wide range of cancers, including those that are highly aggressive.

Dive! Dive! Dive!
If you’ve ever ridden the ‘Griffon’ at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg or ‘Sheikra’ at SeaWorld Orlando, you’ll understand the excitement brewing surrounding the approval of ‘Mako’, SeaWorld San Diego’s soon-to-be newest addition to their growing coaster roster. Recently approved by California’s Coastal Commission, this new dive coaster will be the tallest, fastest, and longest in California, towering 153 feet into the sky and sending riders falling face-first at 60 miles per hour through 2,500 feet of track. SeaWorld is currently shooting for 2020 for ‘Mako’s’ inaugural rides. For more information about this news and for renders of what the new coaster should look like, click here.
