I was poking around the UC San Diego Research Affairs site and stumbled on this collection of videos about various natural researves tied to UC San Diego. (The first video I clicked on required some buffering...but it was worth the wait...I learned about a protective seed pod that looks just like a "spiky loofah". The "spiky loofah" is from a plant called a "cucamonga manroot". The video is here: http://research.ucsd.edu/media/video/UCSDResearchVideo.aspx?v2Play=scripps_08.mov
Boris Babenko bagged the 2010 Google Fellowship in Computer Vision. Nice work!
Below is video from the 2009 Jacobs School of Rock concert at Porter's Pub here at UC San Diego. Babenko is performing at about the 18-second mark.
