In this Dec. 18, 2013 photo provided by San Diego Zoo Global wildlife conservancy, Dr. Donald B. Kearns, acting president of Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, gives a preview of what people can expect from San Diego Zoo Kids, a television network all about wild animals originating from the zoo.

This undated image made available by the journal Nature shows a mouse embryo formed with specially-treated cells from a newborn mouse that had been transformed into stem cells. Researchers in Boston and Japan say they created stem cells from various tissues of newborn mice. If the same technique works for humans, it may provide a new way to grow tissue for treating illnesses like diabetes and Parkinson's disease. The report was published online on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014 in the journal Nature. (AP Photo/RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology, Haruko Obokata)
