It's Saturday (already? Where does the week go?). Have three articles about "what went right" from my mainstream news feeds.

Pilbara locals swap high vis for waders as oyster trial plans progress by Eliza Wood (ABC Western Australia)

A former pearling lease in Karratha may be turned into a site for growing edible oysters if a feasibility study by the Maxima Pearling Company works out right. The area used to grow pearl oysters, but had to close due to disease in 2008. The oyster farm would be a joint venture between the Maxima Pearling Company and the traditional owners of the area, represented by the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation.

What Kikkoman's iconic soy sauce bottle says about Japan by Colin Bisset (Blueprint for Living, ABC Radio National, Australia)

The Kikkoman soy sauce bottle seems both ubiquitous and invisible, but there's a lot going on behind the clever little design. This article profiles both the bottle and its designer, Kenji Eukan.

African painted dog: Perth zoologist devotes his life to saving endangered, misunderstood animal by Emma Wynne (ABC Radio Perth)

Perth Zoo's John Lemon is devoted to saving the African Painted Dog from extinction. He's the founder of Painted Dog Conservation Incorporated, which works in three countries in Africa (Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Namibia) to increase numbers of the dog, reduce poaching, and persuade local communities that maintaining a diverse range of wildlife is a key to tourism income.

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