I’m Honestly Fed Up With All The Bad News So I Illustrated The Best News Of 2018 (And Recent Years)
I'm honestly fed up with all the bad and fake news everywhere. I am not a journalist or an influencer, but I want to use my art to spread some positivity.
I wanted to create an almanac of positive as an anti-venom to the vitriolic rhetoric that pervades our media. That's why I want to share some of this year's positive news from around the world in the hope that it brings you some happiness and inspires you to spread some good news yourself!
Art, technology, food, science, animal rights, human rights... we have progressed in so many categories, and it's necessary to let the world know that, despite having much more to do, we've accomplished some amazing things in 2018. So although it is hard - stay positive.

This is great. Here in Brazil, supermarkets and restaurants avoid donating food even when they actually wanted to because the food donated continues to be the donor's responsibility, so if, for example, it' poorly transported or stored and goes bad and someone eats it and gets sick, it's your store that will get in trouble even if it was fine when you donated, so they're all scared of donating.
The name of the Brewery is Saltwater Brewery. All of the rings are made out of the barley and grains used in the brewing process. So they are completely edible by humans and sea creatures.
Yes! I hate the argument that "sanitary products are a luxury." They are not, do you want blood all over your pants? All over your house?
I have mixed feelings about pandas.... because people mostly only care about protecting "cute" animals like them. I've read and watched so many times about how "ugly" animals like bugs and amphibians are always getting worse off because all the conservation funds and efforts go towards the ones the public likes... But I guess helping some animals is still better than no animals.
huh in Poland several cities decided to ban fireworks on new year because of animals.
If more people would recycle plastic, that would be a good start. I'm appalled at all the trash I see thrown away, that could have been recycled. And not just plastic. My son and I were discussing today the problem of plastic straws. Why couldn't they be made of a fast-degrading material, or even paper? They are only going to be used one time, and can end up in the sea or landfills, taking who knows how long to degrade.
Serious question, does that sugar tax include high fructose corn syrup? If not, it should. Sodas were unhealthy before, but when soft drink companies switched to HFCS they became even worse.
Ugh, doesn't it disgust people to know that their comfort comes from something ripped off of something else's body?
we need to make ocean plastic profitable, if companies start using it and poor people can harvest it and sell it , it is a win win. Stop creating plastic,reuse.
This is good, correct? The crying is confusing. He should be small and happy.
Unfortunately, E-Cigarette smoking is on the rise, especially among teens due to the flavors that comes in them that teens like :(
I wasn't diagnosed until I was in my 40s. It's really hard to detect in girls for the simple reason that all the emphasis is placed on boys' symptoms. It's the same with heart attacks. Everybody knows about classic male symptoms. Fewer people know how differently it presents in women.
@Jeff: I so agree. In almost every case of school shootings, and other mass shootings, the shooter had significant mental health issues. Often, they had stopped getting treatment, stopped taking their meds, etc. Mass shootings are as much a mental health issue, as a gun control issue.
I just hope this is an actual fact... Because I know that here we have a very fake literacy rate made out of people who can pretty much only write their own names and maybe a few words but are already considered literate for statistic purposes.
I got metal re-usable ones for my family! They're only about 5-7 bucks and usually come with a carrying sleeve and a pipe cleaner.
Tbh it's kind of unfair that solar power is currently such a niche product, and easy, affordable solar panels for people to buy would really make a difference
And they do it using a mixture of mud and vegetation..so it's environmentally conscious too.
Good news from a purely ecological point of view. Bad news for the people who make a living in the coal-mining industry. Ironically, it's exactly today that the last coal-mine in my area closes, leaving many unemployed. Maybe someone should finance projects that help these people get new jobs.
Yes, but this is worded a bit poorly, imo. I mean, are they drinking less, or are other countries actually just worse than them now?
FACT: if you throw money and fame at the problem for long enough, it will solve itself
Yeah, and, to no-one's surprise, closely followed by Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand and Sweden. I was initially shocked to see Sweden so low on the list, but when I saw the actual figures, I realised these countries are statistically so close together, that they'll just keep rotating for the No.1 spot for the foreseeable future. Or, of course, you can take Fox News' word for it that these are in fact hell-holes where Muslim refugees rape anything in sight and where Sharia law will be introduced any day now...
Just walk around Chicago and you'll see what a great system it is! It's been there for years and it's so great to see so many bikers!
As I was reading this, all I could think was that perhaps there is hope for this world.
Always seek this type of news out, it is always there, but the media is doing nothing to make sure we see it. Things are never as bad as they seem to be.
They are pretty bad, actually worse than ever in my lifetime. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t good news, its just that good news don’t sell newspapers.

As a whole the world has NEVER been more peaceful or prosperous than it is RIGHT NOW. Yet all these vain, hysterical BP twats are lost in their hissy fits 24/7, so they earnestly write things like: "perhaps there is hope for this world".... LOL
The problem is if they start showing how good we are doing. people would relax and not much more would be done. and even if we are doing great. it could be much better. But I do agree they should show some positive sides in the news too. instead of all the doom and gloom all the time. keep it to the facts. Example say we have way more threes today then we had before. but we still have to fix our pollutions since those threes can't keep up.
There is always good news to be found. Sometimes you just have to look for it.
Even with "Orange Man". ^_^
I always thought it would be wonderful to have a good-news-paper, where only positive stories and successes are published.
