What Went Right - 14 MAR 2017
It's going to be a busy day for me today (leaving early, which means I'm rushing to get this up, and arriving home late, which means I'm not likely to see comments until this evening at the absolute earliest), but I'm still going to post three stories about "what went right" from my mainstream media feed.
Petroleum lease over Kimberley national parks fails to attract applicants by Ben Collins (ABC Kimberley, Western Australia)
A petroleum lease put out to tender in September 2016, which included the Windjana Gorge National Park, the Tunnel Creek National Park, the Devonian Reef Conservation Park and the Brooking Gorge Conservation Park has failed to find any applicants. It was one of the six leases opened up for exploration in the Kimberley which were expected to hold unconventional gas resources, which would require fracking to extract - none of these had any interest expressed.
Sculpture by the Sea works moved as tide rushes in at Cottesloe by Laura Gartry and Graeme Powell (ABC Western Australia)
There was a bit of a storm in Perth on the weekend, which, combined with a high tide, means Cottesloe beach is a lot smaller than it used to be this time last week. The loss of beach space meant at least six of the exhibits in the "Sculpture by the Sea" exhibition had to be moved up the beachfront, as did the lifesavers hut.
Ian Thorpe tackles school bullying with hidden cameras in new documentary by Patrick Wood (ABC Breakfast, ABC Australia)
Content warning: bullying, mentions of physical and emotional violence. A documentary hosted by former Olympian Ian Thorpe has taken the step of providing bullying victims with hidden cameras to document the full extent of the problem.
So there's my three stories about "what went right" for the day. If you've found anything in your news feeds about what went right, why not share a link in the comments?
