Bbc news speed dating
Chinese scientists have developed a successful panda breeding program and it involves showing the animals exactly how to do it.There are about 150 pandas at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, in southern China, and up close and personal there is no doubt about it — they are adorable, cute and cuddly. In captivity "they lose their natural habits", senior scientist Shen Fujun said."The complex rhythm of Panda mating behaviour, with its territorial scent marking and mating calls and social interactions over large areas, is disrupted."It has taken a team of experts three decades to make the captive pandas mate again.Speedmatching events are free networking opportunities where representatives from not-for-profit organisations get to meet face-to-face with media professionals looking to volunteer their time. Ten voluntary organisations each get five minute slots to talk with ten different media volunteers.Organisations discuss what kind of support they're looking for, while volunteers try to give on the spot help and advice, as well as looking for longer term volunteering opportunities.We currently don't have any Speedmatching events available.As part of our Media Matching service, Speedmatching provides a fun way for charities, voluntary organisations and volunteers to find their 'perfect match'.The males have to be separated otherwise they will fight.On the day 7.30 filmed a male panda was rubbing up against the grate, walking around agitated and grunting at the female, apparently to show his interest, but it was to no avail. Mr Zhang said when a female likes a male "she will rub her body through [the ] grate at him and stick her tail up towards the male panda".

Speed dating, as two separate words, is often used as a generic term for similar events.
The first speed-dating event took place at Peet’s Café in Beverly Hills in late 1998.
At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.
At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.
Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.
