The Michael Bolton Cookie

Chef Homaro Cantu's mind-blowing restaurant Moto is known for all sorts of off-the-wall dishes. But one of our favorites has to be the Michael Bolton cookie created by Pastry Chef Ben Roche.  Yes, let's say it again - a Michael Bolton cookie.

This 1991-styled dessert is served at the tail end of Moto's 15-course meal. Bolton's photo is printed on edible paper and topped off with chocolate mousse, raspberry sauce, and vanilla ice cream.

Lions who send text messages

By Brandon Griggs, CNN

Conservationists in Kenya are receiving SMS messages these days from an unlikely source: Lions roaming the savannah.

No, the lions haven't somehow morphed into thumb-happy adolescents, texting messages such as "Just 8 a gazelle. Yum. LOL." Instead the animals wear GPS-enabled collars that send automated messages via wireless networks to researchers who map their locations.

"GPS collars have fundamentally changed the way that lion research is done, in that we are able to study lion movements in great detail in areas where it is usually impossible to follow them," says a post on the website of Living with Lions, one of the conservation research groups behind the project.
