Happy Face

Good News?

Here is my idea. Find GOOD (as in positive) news story and share the links here.

Here are my picks:

Internet Helps Liberate Music in China (NPR)

Florida Buying Big Sugar Tract for Everglades (NY Times)

'Mythical Roman cave' unearthed (BBC News)

Wow, that was harder than I thought it would be. I wanted to post 5 but had to settle on 3. Although I do make a point to read a couple of positives a day, when you LOOK for them, as with anything, they become so much harder to locate! Maybe I'll find more later.

Voice Post: Far Out New Age Healing = Mainstream Self Help

“Couple minutes of me marveling over the fact that very often the New Age healing or magic systems offer very similar advice -- sometimes word for word -- to what's found in mainstream self-help books. For example, just read in Sekhem Heka something that sounds exactly like a mantra in the cognitive behavior therapy book I read last summer. And a book I read on verbal abuse said the same things as Storm's book Inward Revolution. Who'd have thunk it?”
