Diversity Growing at West Point

This year, West Point Military Academy graduates it’s largest class of black women ever!

 

Salt Battery Offers a New Form of Alternative Energy

This story from Associated Press explains how a special type of salt (quicklime) releases large amounts of heat when exposed to water. “The pilotΒ  project in Berlin can currently store enough energy to heat about 100 large houses.”Β  One advantage to this type of renewable energy is that it does not depend on weather.

Parkland Students Honor Therapy Dogs

CNN and others report that the dogs who helped students after the Marjorie Douglas Stoneman high school shooting have been given their own yearbook page. I like that they’re giving these helper dogs the recognition they deserve.

See their pics and read about it here.

Grabbed In the Nick of Time

This NY bus driver is paying close attention.Β  We all need to pay close attention to school buses and their lights.

Got good news?

  1. That video is amazing. What a good snag!

    • Thank you so much for sharing this story, Maggie! It is moving and also enlightening to the possibilities. Apparently there’s a lot about organ donation that I don’t know. I’m grateful to know more now and to feel this hope for humanity.

  2. That School Bus Driver.. WOW how quick she was in her reaction.. I don’t think that child even realised she just saved his life..
    Thank you JoAnna for sharing all you do, Dogs are so therapeutic.. I know when I would visit a local Hospice in a healing capacity
    from a friend who had requested it for her mother, they had a therapy dog who would visit regularly, and it made such a difference to patience.. Pain filled Eyes would fill up with love and for a short time all else was forgotten..
    Great to see so many graduating from West-point πŸ™‚ So brings hope that all things change eventually.. No mean feat for anyone.. Well done to all of them.. πŸ˜€
    I will look deeper into the Salt Battery.. Sounds interesting.. Its time we found alternative energy.. In fact I am certain a cheaper alternative has already been found, but they wouldn’t let on now would they, not if profits are needed to made by the big Energy Giants.. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    Great Good News topics JoAnna.. Always a pleasure to see … What a different world this would be if those big media giants followed suit!!.. πŸ™‚ We live in hope for change there.. But given those wonderful West-Point Woman’s determination, watch this space!.. Because when enough of us start creating the Good News stories and sharing LOVE.. Change will happen..

    Sending huge hugs your way.. Take care.. ( I had a great holiday break. )
    Love Sue ❀
