What Went Right - 5 FEB 2017
Another three stories about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong" from my mainstream media feeds.
Counting whales from space: Researchers monitor migration movements by Erin Parke (ABC Western Australia)
Researchers in Perth are using satellite photos in order to try and get an accurate head-count of the number of humpback whales.
Probiotics in salads probed as solution to Salmonella outbreaks in bagged mixes by Melanie Vujkovic (ABC Queensland)
The University of Queensland, in concert with Horticulture Innovation Australia, have begun a two year investigation into the viability of adding probiotic bacteria to bagged salad mixes as a way of combatting the risk of salmonella from these mixes.
Coffin demand as sure as death and taxes, but size and look of resting place is a different matter by Simon Royal (ABC South Australia)
Coffin making is a relatively recession-proof industry, but there's a surprising amount of variety and interest in the matter. This article is basically a profile of a firm in South Australia which makes coffins from scratch, rather than assembling them from pre-cut components.
So there's your three for the day. If you've found any stories about "what went right" in your media feeds, why not share them in the comments?
