Once again, three articles from my mainstream media feeds about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

One of Australia's first free-range certified pig farmers leaves industry by Tyne Logan (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

One of the first pig farmers in Australia to be certified as "free range" is retiring (due to age), but don't worry, there's a successor on the horizon.

Medicinal marijuana sale approved by Federal Government by Stephanie Anderson (Political reporter, ABC Australia)

Medical marijuana has been approved for sale by the Australian federal government for patients with chronic or painful illnesses. Patients would be required to request access to the drug via prescription from their GP.

Dolphin-mounted cameras give scientists a glimpse of mammal's underwater life by Nicole Chettle (ABC New South Wales)

Custom made cameras (mounted using suction cups) are being used to give a "dolphin's eye view" of the life of a group of dolphins off the coast of Kaikoura, New Zealand.

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