Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Three Scientists Win Nobel Prize for Climate Work

While climate change is not good news, it is good news that the Nobel Prize was awarded to three scientists who have worked hard to clarify how humans have impacted climate. It’s hoped that these insights will impact our behavior with respect toward planet Earth. Learn more about the work of Sykuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann and Giorgio Parisi from The Guardian.

The Lost Wallet

George, a migrant worker from Jamaica, lost his wallet in New York. Laurie found the wallet but had trouble finding George until someone suggested she ask at “a little store that is known to have many Jamaican migrant workers as clients.” Laurie found George and gave him his wallet, but there’s more. Read the story from the Good News Network.

  1. I saw another article about the climate change scientists and the nobel prize. This was terrific!

  2. I love it — “Seeking [and finding!] Balance One Tuesday At a Time” ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. What a kindhearted idea with the “chat checkouts.” Thanks for these good news posts, JoAnna. Hugs on the wing!

  4. Awesome site. We need good news. Thanks so much. Reasons to celebrate.

    • Thank you, Selma! I’m glad you understand the need for good news.

      • Oh yes, I do. And the paradox is that itโ€™s out there!โ€” Good news is. But itโ€™s disaster that sells stories and air time. And so people come to โ€œknowโ€ only what the media tells them is the news of the day. North-East-West-South, look closer!
        Thanks for this post.

        • Yes! Look closer! Thanks for looking closer! Enough people are getting tired of the focus on bad news that a few good news sites have emerged. I still wish the mainstream news networks would have more balance. Maybe in the future….

  5. The Lost Wallet has to be my choice. For my Dad to lose his wallet on pay day was a complete disaster – until the woman who found it returned it.
