What Went Right - 26 JAN 2017

Once again, three things from the mainstream media about "what went right", rather than "what went wrong".

Australia Day honours: West Australians hailing from diverse backgrounds recognised by Charlotte Hamlyn (ABC Western Australia)

With the Australia Day honours coming out, it's a recognition of people who have been doing things right, or doing the right thing for a while now. This article is a brief profile of a few of them.

Lake Argyle set to overflow as monsoonal rains soak the north by Matt Brann (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

The Lake Argyle dam on the Ord River is set to overflow if current rainfall levels keep up, for the first time since the 2013 - 2014 wet season.

Apex predators flock to WA biodiversity hotspot for annual feeding frenzy by Lisa Morrison (ABC Great Southern)

Every year around late January, marine species, such as orcas, sperm whales, giant squid, sharks, dolphins, sunfish and many others congregate to the Bremer Canyon for about six weeks. Lately, this has been attracting scientists wanting to understand the phenomenon.

So, there's the three for the day. However, I've found lots more in my trawl through the headlines, so I'll be putting them into the comments for people who are interested. If you've found anything in your mainstream media feeds about "what went right" in the world, why not share a link in the comments yourself?
