Also trending this morning, it was literal pandamonium in China when 36 new panda cubs made their debut yesterday. They were all born in 2017 but they vary in age and size.
This has been the largest number of births in a single year since the breeding program began at the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda. The numbers provide a much needed boost to the vulnerable global panda population. Each cub could potentially be reintroduced to the wild at a later time.
Finally, something new is cooking in custom sneakers. Asics will soon have special microwave ovens at stores that can literally "bake the sole" of a new athletic shoe.
That means you can customize fit, firmness and color in seconds. The process uses special pellets that will be baked in store. The company says it's a little more earth friendly than traditional custom shoe manufacturing.
