UC Davis vet called to rescue wildlife around the world


He didn't get to celebrate Christmas with his family last year -- UC Davis Veterinarian Dr. Mike Ziccardi was called away on Dec. 22 to the Mongla region of Bangladesh to help more than 800 species of animals threatened by an oil spill.

The world's largest mangrove forest was at the heart of a 92,000-gallon oil spill caused by a tanker-freighter crash. The mangrove forest is home to 20 species of globally protected animals.

Ziccardi, head of the school's "Oiled Wildlife Network," joined other scientists from around the world to come up with a plan to save the region's oil-drenched wildlife. He is the man to call when wildlife needs help.

"Anywhere in the world if assistance is needed, we're one of 10 international organizations that are leaders in this field," Ziccardi said. "So we may get a call at times depending on what the needs are."

Woman riding bike runs red light, struck by car in Vacaville


A woman riding a bike ran a red light Wednesday morning and was struck by a car, according Vacaville's public information officer Mark Mazzaferro.

The incident closed down the eastbound lanes of Elmira Road at Shasta Drive. The lanes are expected to be closed for the next several hours due to the investigation, according to police.

Roasting coffee ... by bike!


Davis is one of America's best bike cities. Bikes are everywhere. That may be why Alex Roth rides an old Schwinn for a living. He's the "Pepper Peddler."

Roth used to roast peppers and never changed the company name. On his rickety stationary bike, with the assist of propane, Roth pedal-powers a giant steel drum. Inside, coffee beans roast. A low cost, environmentally friendly way to run a coffee business.

How Davis is this?

Roth described his roasting drum as a "glorified dryer. Clothes dryer, basically. Tumbling the coffee in there."

Roth has been peddling coffee behind an industrial warehouse for eight years. He sublets a small space from a bakery to save money.
