Bashful Tokyo pandas mate after four-year hiatus
Bashful Tokyo pandas mate after four-year hiatusTwo giant pandas at Tokyo's Ueno Zoo mated for the first time in four years Monday -- a 52-second effort that boosted hopes for a baby as well as shares in a nearby Chinese restaurant. Public viewing of pandas at the zoo has been halted since last week as the mating season got into full swing for the mammals, which are notoriously difficult to arouse. "We let the two be together at 8:06am (2306 GMT Sunday) and confirmed they mated for 52 seconds from 8:48am," Ueno Zoo announced in a statement. Mon, 27 Feb 2017 04:44:39 -0500

The STEM Superhero of Sesame Street
The STEM Superhero of 
 Sesame StreetIt was a crazy idea, and even today no one is sure who thought of it. It was the researchers. No, the screenwriters. Or maybe the advisers? Whomever it was, seven years ago, dozens of Sesame Workshop team members were sitting in a room preparing for the 41st season of Sesame Street. The mission was to create episodes that would teach children about STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math. Mon, 27 Feb 2017 10:30:00 -0500
