What Went Right - 8 APR 2017
Running a bit late this morning - I got caught up in doing some creative work (first time in ages I've been even vaguely inspired, so I wanted to get as much as possible down before it all ran off). Sorry about the delay, but here's the three items about what went right from my news feeds.
How to read a dress: Ways women's clothes tell the story of Western societies through the ages by Emma Wynne (ABC Radio Perth, Western Australia)
A brief profile of the work of Perth academic Lydia Edwards, and her new book "How To Read A Dress".
Country football code sets standards on employment, domestic violence and children's education by Vanessa Mills and Ben Collins (ABC Kimberley, Western Australia)
The East Kimberley Football League is attempting to use participation in AFL football clubs as a way of leveraging participation in social change in remote communities through their new code of conduct. There are standards around participation in employment or looking for work, avoidance of domestic violence, and attempting to get and keep kids in school which potential players are being asked to meet.
Early onset dementia could be a life sentence, but for Andy Creighan it came as a relief by Briana Shepherd (ABC Western Australia)
A profile of Andy Creighan, who was diagnosed with early onset dementia at age 54, but still manages to have a full and busy life despite the inevitable cognitive difficulties.
So there's my three for the day. If you've found a story about what went right in your news feed, why not share it in the comments and boost the signal?
