Complete Wrap (11/13): Within minutes of Judge Janet Littlejohn’s decision to dissolve a restraining order that halted the demolition of the former home of Univision in San Antonio, activists took matters into their own hands.
As real estate developer Greystar was ready to restart the demolition, preservation activists Graciela Sanchez of the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center and Antonia Castaneda, along with two others climbed the fence of the demolition site to halt the work.
There will be another day of court next week to resolve the dispute over the original building that housed KWEX-TV Univision in San Antonio. Much of the Univision building is already destroyed, but preservationists are hoping to save what they call the heart and soul of the structure.

San Antonio likes to party, but residents also observe and respect religious tradition. Because of that, the city council has approved an amendment to next year's Fiesta celebration, which will run from April 10-27, instead of April 19-27.
The party will last a little longer, but the new dates provide a revision to the regular flow of Fiesta events to respect Holy Week. The amendment will allow Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter, which are April 17, 18 and 20, to be observed without the distraction of parties like Fiesta Fiesta, Oyster Bake, and the Taste of New Orleans.

Your "senior moment" -- forgetting where your keys are -- reciting the wrong child's name -- is the result of normal aging, but what makes up normal is defined by what makes up you -- that is to say your genes affect the way your brain declines.
Studying extended families, the Texas Biomedical Research Institute and Yale University published a study showing just how much that decline is influenced by your genetics.
