Food Science
Ducklings weed, plow, and fertilize rice crops. An African berry makes lemons taste like peaches. A restaurant serves bacon-and-egg ice cream. Whatís going on here? Is this a joke? A fantasy? No, itís food science!

"Mothering an Elephant"
When a newborn African elephant is rejected by his zoo-raised mother, members of the Oakland Zoo staff are pressed into service as a make-shift elephant herd. Serving as the mothers, sisters, and aunts who would surround an elephant baby in the wild, they strive to give him a normal life.
