Trying out 3 popular grocery delivery services

Grocery delivery services might be the next battlefield between Amazon and traditional retailers, and Good Morning America turned to a UC Davis expert to judge the quality of the produce the services provided in a small test.

Elizabeth Mitcham, postharvest extension specialist in the UC Davis Department of Plant Sciences and director of the Horticulture Innovation Lab, shared her expertise in the above video. Read more on the Horticulture Innovation Lab's blog.

They really know their UC history

Earlier this year, the University of California continued its sesquicentennial celebration by challenging students, faculty and staff to test their knowledge of UC history with a quiz featuring questions about each campus. Some questions were a cinch for most participants (which campus is known as the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement in the '60s?), while others stumped almost all comers (only 26 percent aced the question about the UC system's connection to the World War I Food for Victory campaign).

UC gathered all the names of people who scored 100 percent and selected 25 at random to receive the prizes shown above. Two of the winners are at UC Davis: Kelly Collins, an analyst in Health Information Management, UC Davis Health; and Nancy Louks, finance manager of the Arts Administrative Group on the Davis campus.
