Good Things: Basketball star, Baby boom, Monkey bath

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Everyone knows it's not impossible anymore, but it is pretty cool to see a lady slam a basketball threw a hoop. So it's even more amazing that baylor forward Brtiney Griner dunked it during an NCAA college game. At 6'8 she becomes just the 7th women's player so far to do it.

There's a bit of a baby boom at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium. For the second time in less than a week, a Beluga whale calf was born. Naya gave birth to a boy that's 5'6 long and weighs 152-pounds. He does not have a name yet.

In Japan it's tradition to bathe in citrus during the winter solstice. So the staff at the Tokyo zoo wanted to give their monkeys the opportunity to do so. But the animals decided that they would rather eat the oranges than bathe in them. You would think the keepers would learn a lesson. They say they try to set up the warm bathe every year and the monkeys always end up eating the food.
