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

Australian scientists make breakthrough in fight against superbugs by Tom Wildie (ABC Western Australia)

A research team at the University of Western Australia have worked out the three-dimensional structure of a protein which is responsible for multiple drug resistant bacteria. The protein in question masks the bacteria from the immune system and from antibiotics.

Ord Valley farmer returns from Brazil study tour with lessons on tropical agriculture and wet season cropping by Matt Brann (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

Kalyn Fletcher has returned from a study tour of Brazil, where she was learning about how Brazilians handle tropical agriculture, and comparing this against methods currently in use in Australia. She was particularly interested in wet season cropping, an area where the Australian system is currently experiencing limited success.

Turtles nesting on Raine Island receive helping hand in bid for survival by Kristy Sexton-McGrath and Stephanie Small (ABC Queensland)

The number of green turtle hatchlings at the Raine Island National Park in Queensland has more than doubled, with the aid of a joint conservation project sponsored by the Queensland government, the Great Barrier Reef foundation, and BHP Billiton. The project has involved creating more hatching space, and reducing the risks to the turtles on the island.

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