Every two weeks – that is, every fortnight – I am pleasantly surprised by an arrival to my Inbox of a group of important stories that didn't make it on the "News", probably because they tend to calm rather than frighten, to bring a smile instead of a frown. The Future Crunch guys (from Australia) compile these stories and deliver them to the world. And at this year's – and decade's – end they have put together:
99 Good News Stories You Probably Didn't Hear About in 2019
About the "News": "[T]ake a nervous system that's evolved for running away from cheetahs, and give it a big glowing screen showing all the bad things happening in the world in near real time."
Yeah, it doesn't sound like that will turn out well for well-being, does it?
So the Future Crunch mission is to bring forth the "other things happening too, stories of conservation, health, progress, tolerance, peace, human ingenuity and environmental stewardship."
And this is just the balm I need every couple weeks. Please check it out.
