Good Things: Technology center, Unique wedding, Marriage proposal

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - Saint Louis school broke ground on a $10 million learning and technology center. The building will be the first new academic facility built on the campus in 80 years. The technology center is expected to be completed in January 2011. The three-story, 27,000-square-foot building will hold Hawaiian studies, visual arts, digital media and music programs.

Preparations are underway for quite a unique wedding ceremony. Two pandas in Taiwan are getting ready to tie the knot. The five-year-old pandas named "Tuan-Tuan" and "Yuan-Yuan" will marry in February. Zookeepers want both pandas to look great for the special day. They're both being fed six times a day with each meal involving more than 20 minutes of exercise.

And how about this for a marriage proposal. A firefighter in New York and his fellow firefighters staged what looked like a terrible accident near his girlfriend's work. His buddies then called her, to help hold an IV bag. As she stood amid the bodies and wreckage, he got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes and they're already planning an October 2011 wedding, with fire trucks in the procession.
