Penguin chick born at the Bronx Zoo makes public debut

New York City's Bronx Zoo has bred a little penguin for the first time in its 120-year history. The zoo is now exhibiting the chick that hatched on May 10. The Bronx Zoo introduced the fairy penguins last year after receiving some from the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia. Named for their small size and characteristic bluish hue, little penguins are also known as blue penguins, little blue penguins, and fairy penguins. Adults are only about 13 inches tall and weigh 2 to 3 pounds. They are the smallest of the 18 penguin species and native to coastal southern Australia and New Zealand.

It's a peculiar bit of Hollywood logic, having the two guys who wrote "The Hangover" write and direct a movie called "Bad Moms." As if by some transitive property of film comedy, their having written a smash hit of men being oblivious, immature and reckless somehow makes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore the ideal candidates to explore the difficulties modern mothers face to balance conflicting responsibilities with the need to remain individualized people too.

Interview: Jenna Ortega adds voicing Disney's Princess Isabel to her repertoire

When we first found out that we were meeting Jenna Ortega, we were so excited. She has to be one of the hardest working actresses around! She is working on four shows right now and we think that is unbelievable: Disney Channel's "Stuck in the Middle," The CW's "Jane the Virgin," Disney's new animated series, "Elena of Avalor" and Radio City Music Hall's "New York Spectacular at Radio City."
