    started a topic Zoo Atlanta's panda cub Mei Lan makes her debut.

    Zoo Atlanta's panda cub Mei Lan makes her debut.

    You may have seen her on the news -- Mei Lan made her debut in front of the cameras today -- Mei Lan is Zoo Atlanta's panda cub who was born in September 2006. (requires quicktime) (on Firefox, I had to allow 2 scripts, and then I could see the cub)
    Live video of the cub will now be accessible Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m, US Eastern Standard Time (-5 UTC).

    From CNN: "Getting Mei Lan and her nervous mother to this point has been no easy task. The zoo already postponed the media debut once after realizing the cub was making chirping noises that meant she was uncomfortable outside her nest.

    "You just can't rush it. You have to let the animals tell you when they're ready," said Rebecca Snyder, curator of giant panda research and management.

    Mei Lan and her mother, Lun Lun, have been in seclusion since the cub's September 6 birth. Panda fans have been keeping up with the duo on the zoo's panda cam on the Internet or through live video feeds on monitors at the zoo's panda exhibit.

    Zookeepers have put adhesive "no slip" strips on the slick concrete floor to help Mei Lan while she learns to walk. They put down natural fiber mats at first, but Lun Lun chewed them to shreds.

    She is walking on her own now -- though it looks more like stumbling. It is important that the cub learn how to walk and climb well; she could get seriously hurt from a fall inside her enclosure, which has rocks, trees and slopes."

    I'll take it off if necessary, but I knew some folks would have trouble accessing the website videos etc. and want everyone to be able to see this little wonder.

    I don't if you have seen this piece where Annie Leibovitz uses her photos as collateral to borrow $10 Million to pay her mortgages.

    Hey, looking for some advice. I have a nightmare you may have guessed from the title. She argues about rates, never gives a fair rate and so far has always contacted me about jobs when I'm super desperate for cash so although after the first time I worked for her I vowed to not do it again,...
