Another day, another three things from my news feeds about what went right.

Surfers train to save lives at WA beaches when life savers not on duty by Nicolas Perpitch (ABC Western Australia)

Latest Helicobacter pylori breakthrough could lead to eradication of bacteria by Tom Wildie (ABC Western Australia)

A team of researchers led by Professor Barry Marshall (who was the joint winner of the Nobel in 2005 for the discovery of helicobacter pylori) is conducting further study on the bacteria, with the overall aim of being able to find methods of treating h.pylori infection.

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 it in the comments, and boost the signal?
