Today's excuse for why this is late is a simple one: it's a non-teaching week at uni, and I decided to sleep in. I'm running late overall. Apologies for the delay. Here's three items about "what went right" from my news feeds anyway.

Perth Swans netball team shoots for gold at Australian Sikh Games by Emma Wynne (ABC Radio Perth, Western Australia)

The Australian Sikh games are happening in Adelaide this year, and the Perth Sikh Swans are hoping to bring back gold in the Junior Girls Netball competition.

Western Australian farming community comes together for annual shear for breast cancer by Tyne Logan (WA Country Hour, ABC Western Australia)

The annual Yorkraine "Shear for Liz" event went off without a hitch this year, despite a freak storm ripping the roof off the shearing shed where it's usually held. The event is held in memoriam for Liz Roberts, who died of breast cancer in 2014, and consists of shearers donating a day's wages from shearing toward breast cancer research. This year, they raised over $20,000.

Rare tropical ribboned seadragon bred in Geraldton gives students unique access by Christopher Lewis (ABC Mid West and Wheatbelt, Western Australia)

A chance event has resulted in the Batavia Coast Maritime Institute becoming the host to a large colony of ribboned sea dragons (about 170 babies, and two adults). The Institute's staff and students are looking on it as a phenomenal learning opportunity.

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 in the comments, and boost the signal?
