Samo dobre vijesti

10.03.2020.

Naša preporuka: svako jutro uz doručak pogledajte ovaj profil

Ako ste, kao i mi, ponekad prezasićeni lošim vijestima, poraznim statistikama i žalopojkama, što vlastitim, što dragih ljudi, vrijeme je da osjećaj nezaobilazne propasti svijeta zamijenimo zahvalnošću za sve ono dobro što imamo i malo za promjenu, dobrim vijestima. S tom je mišlju umjetnik i novinar Mauro Gatti osnovao The Happy Broadcast, stranicu na kojoj objavljuje i ilustrira često malo poznate, ali uvijek dobre vijesti, koje će vam zasigurno, bar na trenutak, dati osjećaj nade u bolje sutra. Ilustriranjem recentnih ekoloških, medicinskih i društvenih napredaka civilizacije kao što su činjenica da je Nizozemska službeno postala prva zemlja bez pasa lutalica ili da su znanstvenici pronašli način da sve krvne grupe konvertiraju u grupu 0 koja je univerzalni donor, Gatti nudi alternativu crnoj kronici i pozitivan pogled na stanje stvari.

Sreća je velikim dijelom stvar perspektive, tako da se udobno smjestite i dopustite da vas preplavi osjećaj veselja i spokoja te učinak feel good filma u samo nekoliko sekundi. Za trajnije rezultate i redovitije senzacije unutarnjeg mira te dobre vijesti iz svih krajeva svijeta preporučujemo da zapratite The Happy Broadcast na društvenim mrežama.

Rome is trying to become more environmentally friendly by offering free metro tickets to travelers who re-cycle plastic bottles using machines set up in three of the Italian capital’s stations. The initiative, which was launched in July, has proved so popular that 350,000 bottles have been recycled. It will soon be extended across the metro network and run until July 2020, the city’s public transport company ATAC says. Rome is the first capital city in the European Union to launch the scheme in metro stations. Similar schemes have already been adopted in Beijing and Istanbul.

Chemical pesticides have turned out to be another man-made disaster, as its effect on humans and the environment has been found to be as deadly as on pests. So some farmers in China, Japan, France, and other countries looked back on the traditional way of controlling pests and found using ducks, to be the most effective way. This method of integrated farming, i.e. ‘rice-duck farming’ has been documented 600 years ago. Apart from eating the pests, the wading or waddling of the ducks through the mud oxygenates water and stirs up layers of soil. Their droppings act as a natural fertilizer. All these benefits make these ducks a viable alternative to pesticides!

We’re a step closer to save White Rhinos from extinction! – Drop a in the comments to celebrate this event. – Tag in the comments one of your friends that needs some good news. Seven eggs from the world’s last two remaining northern white rhinos have been successfully fertilized artificially, reviving hopes of saving the endangered animals. The world’s last male northern white rhinoceros, a 45-year-old named Sudan, died last year in Kenya, leaving only the two surviving female members, Najin and Fatu, of the species. The scientists said in a statement they had harvested 10 eggs from Najin and Fatu and that seven of those had been successfully matured and artificially inseminated.

Since the 19th century, Holland has had a huge dog population. An outbreak of rabies became one of the leading causes of death. Out of fear, many owners began abandoning their pets, and since this action was considered legal, streets became filled with stray dogs of all kinds. Holland wanted to change those unfortunate circumstances. They started by implementing the PSVIR method (pick, sterilize, vaccinate, identify, and return). All were free of charge; the government covered all the expenses. Holland achieved this goal without putting animals down and without kennels. And to incentivize adoption the Dutch government resolved to raise taxes on the purchase of dogs in stores.

Through the Cuddle Club, senior dogs and senior citizens connect. The club was started by the Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco as a way to ensure that older dogs get love and attention. Several times a month, the group holds events where senior citizens gather in a room filled with dogs that are 7 or older. After petting and playing with the dogs for about an hour, visitors can then walk the elderly canines, getting them all out into the fresh air for exercise.

Ethiopia planted more than 353 million trees in 12 hours on Monday, which officials believe is a world record. The burst of tree planting was part of a wider reforestation campaign named "Green Legacy," spearheaded by the country's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. Millions of Ethiopians across the country were invited to take part in the challenge and within the first six hours, Ahmed tweeted that around 150 million trees had been planted. Ethiopia's goal for the whole season is even bigger than that; the national tree planting campaign aims to plant 4 billion trees during "the rainy season" between May and October.

[ Swipe → for ] With 3 million residents, the Ajegunle district is one of the most densely concentrated slums in Lagos, Nigeria. People living there often have shabby structures for homes, struggle to access to water and sanitation, and are unable to afford school fees to send their kids to school, according to the anti-poverty organization the Borgen Institute. Known as the Recycle Pay project, plastic waste acts as currency to allow parents to pay a portion of the fees. The project was created by the African Clean Up Initiative and WeCyclers, working alongside the Morit International School in Ajegunle, according to the BBC. The organisations made it easy for parents to exploit this initiative. Basically, they need to take a bag of plastic waste to a facility and have it weighed. The weight is then translated into a monetary value and deducted from the fees owed to the school. The project eases the financial burden of families in the community, allows kids to go to school, and reduces the problem of plastic waste.

[ Swipe → for ] Researchers from the University of British Columbia have figured out how to convert blood types A, B and AB into the universal Type O, which all patients can receive in a transfusion, regardless of their own blood type. Blood types are differentiated by the kinds of sugar found on the surface of red blood cells. Type O has no sugars. Scientists had realized that some enzymes can remove the sugars from A, B and AB blood cells, turning them into Type O, but they hadn’t found an enzyme that was safe, efficient and economical, until they considered the gut. The scientists were able to isolate the enzyme and use it to strip blood of its sugars in a more efficient way than any other enzyme.

[ Swipe → for ] Cow digestion relies on millions of microbes in their guts processing and fermenting high-fibre foods. This process allows the animals to survive on a diet of grass, but it also produces large quantities of methane – a gas responsible for around a quarter of man-made global warming. Researchers in Australia started investigating after a dairy farmer noticed cows that grazed on washed-up seaweed along the shore were healthier and more productive than those in the field. He began feeding his cows a mixture of local seaweed and found the new diet saved him money and induced “rip-roaring heats,” with his herd. Preliminary research has indicated a small amount of marine algae added to cattle food can reduce methane emissions from cattle gut microbes by as much as 99 per cent.

[ Swipe → for ] Thanks to this week’s guest artist Nikolas Ilic @nikolas.ilic Back in 1973, out of concern that many of America's native plants and animals were in danger of extinction, Congress passed the Endangered Species Act. The law enables regulators to designate species as either "endangered," meaning that they're at risk for becoming extinct throughout at least a significant portion of their range, or "threatened," meaning that they're likely to become endangered in the near future. The researchers, who looked at 31 different populations of marine mammals and sea turtles, found that 78 percent of the mammals and 75 percent of the turtles increased their population size after receiving protection under the Act. Sea turtles in particular benefited from the law, with their populations increasing by 980 percent!

[ Swipe → for ] A supermarket in Thailand has replaced its plastic packaging with banana leaf wrapping. Banana leaves have been traditionally used in many Asian countries, Mexico, and Hawaii for packaging food, but Rimping supermarket in Chiangmai, Thailand is probably one of the first stores to use them on such a large scale. There are myriad benefits to using banana leaves over plastic packaging. For one, leaves are organic matter and will easily compost, unlike their plastic counterparts, which will take anything between 50 and 200 years to fully break down. Banana leaves, besides composting effectively, also add nutrients to the soil and will, over time, improve the capacity of the soil to nurture new plants and crops. Little steps make a big difference.

A cold snap is underway across northern India, home to the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center, and everyone is feeling the chill. Fortunately, the sanctuary's pachyderm residents, each of whom was rescued from a sad life of exploitation and abuse, aren't having to face the freezing temperatures unprotected. As it turns out, a group of big-hearted local villagers have been knitting giant sweaters to keep the elephants warm. “It is important to keep our elephants protected from the bitter cold during this extreme winter, as they are weak and vulnerable having suffered so much abuse making them susceptible to ailments such as pneumonia," Kartick Satyanarayan, founder of the centre, told the Times of India.

Scotland became the first nation in the world to guarantee free sanitary products to all students at schools, colleges, and universities. It’s part of a £5.2 million ($6.7 million) government plan to fight “period poverty”—the problems faced by women who struggle to cover their basic needs while menstruating. In a recent survey, researchers determined that approximately one in four students at school, college, or university struggle to obtain period products. The Scottish government also says it intends to make period products free for everyone — not just students. Period poverty continues to be a serious global issue — one that can also lead to mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression. Hopefully more countries will take a step to fix this issue.
