Another day, another three reports from my mainstream media feeds about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

Architect's memoir imagines Syria after the war by Sarah Collard (ABC Western Australia)

Marwa al-Sabouni (a Syrian architect) wrote her memoir of the Syrian civil war, "The Battle for Home", in the city of Homs, across the street from the frontlines of the battle. She brings an interesting perspective to the question of why the war started, and what could be done as a part of the process of rebuilding to try to prevent future conflicts.

Olympic swimmer Jarrod Poort takes out solo in the Rottnest Channel Swim, but fails to break record by Courtney Bembridge (ABC Western Australia)

It was near-perfect conditions for the Rottnest Channel Swim (from Cottesloe beach to Rottnest Island), although unfortunately no records fell in this year's event.

Food truck vendors spruik Tasmania's potential, hospitality industry wary by Elise Fantin (ABC Tasmania)

Food truck operators are proclaiming Tasmania (and Hobart in particular) as one of the next big places for food trucks, hoping to build the industry to the point where events can be held built around the presence of food trucks.

So there's my three for the day. If you've found any stories in your mainstream media feeds about what went right, why not share them in the comments?
