Good News Tuesday for April 26, 2022: Defending Lions, A Miniature Heart, Teacher of the Year, and a Very Supportive Dad


Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

The Lion Defenders of Tanzania

Lions are classified as vulnerable in Tanzania. But people and livestock are at risk from lions. A project called Lion Landscapes has developed innovative ways to protect lions and help villagers, including a team of Lion Defenders of the Barabaig tribe who track lions to let herders know where the safest grazing areas are. Here’s more from CNN’s Good Stuff.

Miniature Heart Designed to Help in Treatment Research

 A miniature heart replica, built by a Boston University team, will help with heart disease research and treatment. The “mini-pump” is roughly the size of a postage stamp and made from nanoengineered parts and human heart tissue. Here’s more from Boston University (via my 1440 Daily Digest).

Teacher of the Year

There are many excellent teachers all over the world. This one, Kurt Russell of Ohio, was named 2022 “Teacher of the Year” in the US. He talks about engaging students for a diverse education in this video from CBS.

  1. I was especially moved by the supportive dad. So often, we succeed not only through our hard work, but also with the support of a loved one who believed in our ability to achieve our dream.

  2. JoAnna, this is amazing good news about the pump for the heart! While I find a lot wrong with the way medicine is practiced in this country, we have had some truly remarkable innovations. ❤

  3. “Everyone loves a good teacher” was a recruitment slogan here a few years ago

  4. I love the lion story. Man, this is great.

  5. Thank you for sharing!!… this ole world could use some good news these days!… I especially liked the video, with all the negative at present, it is difficult for one to believe in oneself, all one has to do is follow ones heart… 🙂

    hope all is well in your world filled with good news and until we meet again…
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

    • I’m very glad you enjoyed the good news, and especially the video which brought excitement and happy tears to my eyes. Thank you for visiting and the blessing. 🙂 Peace to you, Larry.
