Good News

Does it appear that every time you turn on the television or read the news paper, that someone tells you how bad things are in the world? Jake is no psychologist, but you probably don't have to be one to realize that constantly hearing how bad things are, is not healthy.

Jake set out on a quest today to find some good news. Guess what? There are plenty of good news stories out there. For example, did you know that Intel the maker of computer chips is investing a lot of money that will create new jobs in the US? Not something that you are likely to hear on the mainstream news.

If it is good news you want, you just have to know where to look. Here are a few links where you can get your daily dose of what's going right in the world.
So the next time you are standing around the water cooler and someone starts talking about how bad things are, turn things around. Tell them about one of the good news stories you read today.

(The preceding has been a public service announcement from the glass is half full department.)

YEA!!!! Some happy, positive news...finally! You would have thought from the reported news that we were living in a post apocalyptic world, dismal and hopeless. Thanks for the upper, Jake!
