(Sorry for being late today. I was focused on doing my yoga at home to stay home and do homey things. The good news is, I did my yoga then practiced with my 8 lb weights. I was folding towels when I thought, Wait. What day is it? it’s Tuesday. OMG, Good News Tuesday!)

A Rescue Team Freed a Right Whale from Lobster Pots and Rope

A team from Clearwater Marine Aquarium Research Institute and others freed a North Atlantic Right Whale, nicknamed Argo, from lobster pots and commercial fishing rope tangled around his tail. Some of the rope was imbedded in his tail and the weight was slowing him down so much he was only able to use his front flippers to swim. At first, Argo tried to avoid the rescuers but later stayed close to the surface, perhaps knowing they were trying to help. We don’t know if Argo will make it, but at least now, he has a chance and time to swim free. Here’s the story and a video.

Michelle Yeoh Wins the Best Actress Award for Best Picture

I haven’t yet seen, Everything, Everywhere, All at Once, the movie voted best picture by the Academy, but I did enjoy Michelle Yeoh’s acceptance speech after winning the best actress award. I believe she is the first Asian American to win the award which she called “a beacon of hope and possibility.” She also said, “Ladies, don’t let anyone ever tell you, you are past your prime.”

Pep Talks from Kindergarteners

There’s a hotline where you can get pep talks from kindergarten students. The program was put together with help of California teachers Jessica Martin and Asherah Weiss. I called the number in the article linked below and enjoyed hearing the positive young voices. Option #2, “Words of Encouragement”, was my favorite, with option #1 a close second. Here are the details from NPR.

Support for Health Care Workers

It does our hearts good to read about all the people supporting and donating to health care workers. Here’s just one example among many: To celebrate their birthdays, two teenagers had the idea to give free gasoline to first responders, police officers, doctors, nurses, and other health care workers coming to their family’s business, Harry’s Food Mart in Massachusetts. Delivery fees were also waved by J&S Transport company delivering the gas.

For Planet Earth

Tomorrow is Earth Day, and while we need at least a whole month to celebrate and honor Mother Earth, I wanted to include some good news about how people are working to help the planet.  Here are ways to be creative with solar panels in driveways and at church.

The Budapest-based startup, Platio Solar has developed a residential solar paneled driveway made out of recycled plastic bottles. According to the website, “a 20-square-meter (215-square-foot) driveway system has the capacity to cover the yearly energy consumption of an average household.” Or it The Good News Network provides details. 

A Polish priest inspired by Pope Francis used his own money to put a 70 foot cross of solar panels on his church. By day, the cross provides the electricity for the church’s lighting, heating, and air conditioning. By night, it provides a colorful neon light show.  Here’s more on that story which I found in my Goodnewsletter.

Living Kindly for Animals

The animal welfare group, Live Kindly, has an abundance of  good news for animals in the following video, like Dr. Fauci recommending an end to live animal markets, dogs and cats no longer being listed as livestock in China, a bill to ban ivory sale in Washington DC, sea turtles nesting freely, and Paul McCartney making sure Lisa Simpson is still a vegetarian before he goes on The Simpsons. If you love animals and the earth, this is good news.


99 Year Old Veteran Walks the Walk

In just two weeks, Captain Tom Moore has raised over 13 million pounds for England’s National Health Service by walking 100 lengths of his back garden before his 100th birthday.  Now, there’s a campaign for Captain Tom to be knighted. Captain Tom reminds us that we’re never too old to make a difference whether by walking or with a smile.

UPDATE: Thanks to Derrick for this update in the comments: “Captain Tom didn’t stop there. Stating that he would continue walking as long as people continued giving, by 18th April the total had passed £23,000,000.”

It was hard to pick just one video about Captain Tom, so I urge you to watch others too.

Man Survives Serious Shark Attack

This story got my attention since I love swimming in the ocean and the survivor is close to my age which is not that old any more. Shark attacks are rare and generally a case of mistaken identity. But just in case….

Good News for Dogs:

Way to go England! First they banned puppy mills, now they’re saying good riddance to shock collars.
