What Went Right - 16 APR 2017
Second last one of these, so let's see it's a good one. Here's three articles about "what went right" from my mainstream news feeds.
Developmental Coordination Disorder: Exercise help gets WA teenagers up and about by Tom Wildie (ABC Western Australia)
This article is a profile of the AMPitup program, run by the University of Notre Dame in Fremantle, for teenagers with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).
Texting bays offered to WA drivers tempted by mobile phones in bid to limit road toll by Sarah Whyte and AM Staff (AM, ABC Australia)
A trial of special texting bays, where drivers can pull over and check their mobile phones and respond to messages and such, is being undertaken on the Forrest and South-West Highways this year, to see whether this has any effect on the road toll during the school holidays. The trial runs until April 28 this year, and results will be reviewed by the WA Road Safety Commission.
Tasmanian recipes video offers new dietary ideas for chemotherapy patients by Harriet Aird (ABC Tasmania)
Lily Trewartha has survived Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and is putting her experiences with chemotherapy and her skills as a chef together in a video presentation for the Cancer Council. The presentation is aimed at helping chemotherapy patients maintain good nutrition, a healthy weight, and sufficient muscle mass to be able to handle higher doses of chemotherapy, and thus a shorter overall treatment time.
So there's my three for the day. If you've spotted any stories about "what went right" out there, why not share a link in the comments, and boost the signal.
