What Went Right - 19 December 2016

Today's three stories about "what went right" from the mainstream media.

The 12 key science moments of 2016 - By Andrea Sella, Sophie Scott, Helen Czerski, Mark Miodownik, Adam Rutherford, Martin Rees, Kevin Fong, Sue Hartley, Georgina Mace, Vaughan Bell, Peter Piot; Guardian/Observer.

This is an omnibus article, and as such it's a mixed bundle. I'm including it here because seven out of the twelve items are about things which "went right" - things where people are doing the right things, where things are going in positive directions, and where science is broadening the scope and depth of human knowledge.

Hidden gems of 2016: the best books you may have missed - By Hannah Beckerman, Alex Clark, Rachel Cooke, Viv Groskop, Kate Kellaway, Robert McCrum, Stephanie Merritt, Alice O'Keeffe, Alex Preston, Anthony Quinn, Anita Sethi; Guardian/Observer.

Another omnibus article. Most of the books listed tend heavily toward the "literary fiction" genre. However, a recommendation tends to mean something "went right" for the reader, so I'm including it in the list.

Real-life Mr and Mrs Claus welcome the public into their home - By Amy Fairhead, WA Today.

A Perth couple spends about two months decorating their home for Christmas, and then invites the public to visit (entry is nominally free, although they ask for a donation to the K-9 Rescue Foundation, which is a non-profit organisation that rescues, cares for and re-homes dogs from the Peel region of Perth through to the Cockburn area).

So, that's today's helping. Have you found any stories about "what went right" in your media feed? Share them in the comments, and let's boost the signal on the positive stuff!
