We are often bombarded with fear-mongering and shocking headlines that make us feel that the world is falling apart.

However, while it’s important to report on problems and issues, I believe there is so much good in this world that it needs to be found and promoted just as widely.

Because of that, I started The Happy Broadcast. It's an anti-venom to the vitriolic rhetoric that pervades our media. Also, this year, I’ve illustrated even more happy news than in 2018.

We need more positive news to acknowledge that the world is actually getting better little by little.

When I'm working on The Happy Broadcast, I try to pick news that has an international appeal and touches themes like animal rights, climate change and science. News that shows how much we’re progressing on many fronts despite being often bombarded with few-mongering headlines.

I think there are many reasons why negative news is dominating the media. It's like a sudden disaster a, it's more compelling than, for example, little improvements. Bad things can happen quickly, but good things aren’t built in a day, and as they unfold, they're out of sync with the news cycle.

As humans, we have this thing called “negative bias” that make us respond quicker to bad or dangerous situations. Nowadays, this bias is getting in the way of our happiness and well-being, and even our productivity because most of the narrative surrounding us (print, online or mobile) is that the “world is ending".

It is getting more and more common in some countries and supermarkets. Loose fruits and vegetables and also non-perfect ones. It's a good trend!

My local grocer bags imperfect and overripe, and sells them at reduced cost. The little stand is usually full in the morning and empty by midday. They've also stopped throwing out "trim" -- leaves off cabbage, husks off corn, stalks off broccoli, etc. That is being bagged for chicken feed, pig feed and compost -- for free!

Sadly a PR stunt for a few. You are more likely to see a single banana wrapped in plastic than anything wrapped in a banana leaf. Add to that shrink-wrapped coconuts and other fruit and vegetables that don't need such wrappings.

Yes, and if discarded, those leaves just go back to nature. This is the problem in Bhutan. They used to use natural materials for wrapping and just discarded it on the road. Now that they use plastic, they have to have a giant anti littering campaign to tell them not to discard plastic on the road.

I lived in Thailand 30 years ago and plastic was everywhere, littering all the streets. People sold fresh food at markets in little plastic bags. But many years before plastic they used banana leaves. Then people started tossing plastic on the ground just like they did the banana leaves. A return to banana leaves can be a great thing for Thailand.

I think we should find a balance between negative and positive news. From politics to climate change and economy, negative and bad news surrounds us everywhere we go. A potential solution could be to limit the amount of bad news, basically slow down our personal news cycle, adding some positive news to our “news diet” to make sure that our outlook on the world is more optimistic. Also, it's very important to invest time to deal with misinformation and the reliability of news sources.

Although the use of solar panels is green, many solar panel manufacturing processes are not. To create a solar panel, caustic materials will emit greenhouse gases. Plus less than 11% of each panel has salvageable metals so they're not very recyclable once they're usable life has expired. Most people aren't aware that the 'green' alternatives often aren't.
