My best wishes for anyone in Northern Queensland reading this - here's hoping Cyclone Debbie turns out to be a bit less ferocious than expected. In the meantime, here's the three things from my newsfeeds about what went right.

Kimberley abattoir resumes production after big wet season by Matt Brann (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

The only abbatoir in the north-west of Australia, at Yeeda Station between Broome and Derby, has re-opened after the wet season.

'Energy-harvesting' clear glass created by Perth team by Briana Shepherd (ABC Western Australia)

The Electron Science Research Institute at Edith Cowan University, and local firm ClearVue technologies have worked together to create a commercially viable, clear, solar glass. The glass contains special nanoparticles, with solar cells around its borders, and can block the UV and infra-red components of sunlight transferring those energies to the solar cells to create energy, while passing the visible light through to provide illumination.

World's biggest dinosaur footprints found in north-western Australia by Ben Collins (ABC Kimberley, Western Australia)

Footprints of sauropod dinosaurs, measuring at up to 1.7m in length, have been documented in the north-west of Western Australia, on the coastline north of Broome. They're one of up to 21 different types of dinosaurs represented in the area.

So there's my three for the day. If you've spotted a story about "what went right" in your news feeds, why not share it in the comments, and boost the signal.
