National Republicans will take aim at 7 CA House seats lost to Democrats last year

National Republicans in 2020 plan to take extra effort to reclaim all seven California House seats they lost to Democrats last year, a challenging undertaking in what’s likely to be a contentious presidential election.

Most Instagrammed places in the US

The more jaded travelers among us might say nobody travels anymore; they just go places to collect content for their Instagrams. Which, for a large segment of the population, is probably true. Such is travel in 2019, where the popularity of both people and places is largely gauged on the ‘gram. While we’re not going to pass judgment on any national park, sandy beach, or mouse-eared theme park based on the number of hashtags it got in 2018, Play Picks is happy to do so.

King tides offer look at the coast’s flooded future with sea-level rise

As dramatic as king tides can be when they flood the streets of Seal Beach or the Peninsula in Long Beach, an aerial perspective of waves battering the coast takes the drama to another level. From 1000 feet above, you can see surf pounding long sequences of seawalls and riprap rocks protecting homes, the ocean sometimes appearing to threaten structures despite the installed barriers. Where there are cliffs with no homes, the waves gnaw away at the bluffs, moving the beaches at their base farther...
