Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Fighting the Coronavirus

Doctors in Bangkok, Thailand have able to treat severe cases of the coronavirus with success using a combination  HIV and flu medications. A 70 year old woman who tested positive for 10 days showed vast improvement within 48 hours of treatment. Here’s more of the story from Ecowatch.

 

Recycling Plastic into Building Material

Goodwood Plastic Products Ltd of Halifax, Nova Scotia is turning 80% of the area’s collected plastic into lumber. The remaining 20% is transported to other parts of Canada for recycling.

“The plastic lumber can be drilled, nailed, glued, and handled the same way as wooden lumber—but without any of the same deterioration.” Good News Network

Chef of the Poor

Ninety-year-old Dino Impagliazzo cooks for the poor in the city of Rome. He and other volunteers of RomAmoR (RomeLove) collect donated food, cook, and serve the poor and homeless. I hope you enjoy reading about Mr. Impagliazzo and RomAmoR in this story from the NY Post.

 

Student Surprises Teacher with College Acceptance

Max Pacheco surprised his favorite teacher, Dr. Gloria Green, who teaches AP Spanish. Last month he brought her a  bouquet and the announcement that he got into the Georgia Institute of Technology. This video will make you smile.

  1. The Goodwood is interesting. There are many benefits there, as it offsets the need to cut lumber.

  2. Thank you JoAnne! Very much appreciated and sorely needed perspective on our muddled and muddied world!

    • You are very welcome, Claudia. I’m so glad you stopped by to appreciate the good news with me. It’s kinda like medicine. I’ll be here every Tuesday with more good news!
