For Science Monday we thought we’d turn to a different sort of chemistry: the chemistry of high-altitude baking. All kudos for story idea — and cake execution — to Mary Lou Cooper. When Mary Lou began sharing what she was going through to refine her homemade dessert repertoire after taking part in a recent community college baking class, I couldn’t help but think of a famous TV scene.

SFR is talking about a topic today that is important to all of us, but most especially to teens and their families.  That topic is cyberbullying.  And it affects one our of every three teens in America.  We kick off this feature with excerpts from the song "Hey Bully" which was co-written and recorded by young country artist Morgan Frazier.  Frazier says that as a kid she was bullied at school.  She joined forces with the organization "Stand for the Silent" to campaign against bullying.  KSFR reporter Mary Lou Cooper brings us the story.

The Little Hours takes you to a medieval convent with frustrated nuns and a servant who addresses their needs. It’s a satire and a sex comedy, and it’s playing at the CCA. David D’Arcy says it’s a lot of fun.

KSFR's Mya Green takes you through a stroll of last weekend’s one-of-a-kind extravaganza.
