Another three stories from the mainstream media about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

Kalgoorlie engineer lip reads her way to diverse mining career by Bettina Arrow and Rachel Day (ABC Goldfields, Western Australia)

A profile of Jayne Finch, who wound up contracting meningococcal disease as a 21 year old, which destroyed her hearing. It hasn't stopped her completing a geology degree, and going on to a diverse career in the mining industry.

Year of the rooster Australian gold, silver and opal coins a boon for Perth Mint by Babs McHugh (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

The Perth Mint has been doing brisk business in commemorative coins for the Lunar New Year, with the silver and opal coins selling out (silver coin with opal rooster emblem). They also do a solid gold coin with a rooster emblem, which is selling well too.

Emoji inventor Shigetaka Kurita says MoMA New York acquisition 'feels like a dream' by Rachel Mealey (Tokyo reporter, ABC Australia)

The original 177 emoji have been added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, which both surprises and pleases their inventor, Shigetaka Kurita.

So there's the three for today. If you've found anything in your mainstream media feed about "what went right", why not share a link to it in the comments?
