Amid the chaos, traditional roles would be overturned and new ones are formed as the Smales accept their servant's offer of refuge and flee to his village in the bush. Additionally, Zoe Wicom...

The first step was to soak several dry beans in water overnight. Put four soaked beans on a wet piece of paper toweling and four dry beans on a piece of wet paper toweling. Then I labeled two plastic cups with the start date and soaked or dry, and put the toweling and beans in the appropriate cup and placed them on the windowsill. Everyday I checke...
