Weekly Competition #21

15 February 2019

Skills-Heads-Curiosity

WINNERS ANNOUNCED:
placid_meerkat and genuine_literature

Thanks for brightening up the Hub this week with all of the good news stories that you found! It was almost impossible to choose a winner. We went for placid_meerkcat who kept their ideas short and sweet, and a truly heartwarming tale from genuine_literature, which really peaked our curiosity. Well done to everyone who gave it a go!

PS. We noticed that lots of people entered the competition more than once in order to win stars. As this has disproportionately affected the Leaderboard, we have had to change this so that only one entry per person could be awarded a star. Sorry!

WEEKLY COMPETITION #21

Not all news is bad news! This week, we'd like the Burnet News Club to think positively. Be curious about the world and find a good news story. Something that is positive, makes you smile, or is a just really good to hear. It might be something small in the local paper or a massive headline we might have missed.

Please share the headline below, with a short explanation about why you think it's great.

Winners will be announced on Friday. Good luck!

    Cafe staffed by people with down syndrome. This makes me happy as it gives people with down syndrome the opportunity to work and have a normal life like everyone else. This also teaches society to accept people for their differences because everyone is equal and should have the same opportunities.

    The elderly in India are being given the chance to go to school. As India is an LIC, very little people have an education and by giving older generations this privilege, they can pass their knowledge on to younger generations for free! This is positive because more people will have the knowledge and could educate them on how to make the world a better place for others as well as for themself.

    'Camera shows dog running for help after owner collapses from a stroke'. I think that this is a positive headline because it's not everyday that you see an animal physically helping its owner. The reason i have chosen this headline, is because most people without pets think that pets are useless and just do nothing; but really they can protect you from any harm or danger. They can also be great help if they see any suspicious crimes going on or anything that doesn't seem right to them.

    A little boy gifting a shoe to the homeless.
    Cheikh Faizal 9 year old rushes to the aid of a homeless woman and her son to give them his shoes. This is a positive story due to a little boy recognizing that homeless people are just humans so why should we treat them differently?

    A good news story i found is that Peter Jackson is creating a 55 hour documentary on the Beatles. I believe this is good story as it can inform fans of the band what life was like for them. This is a positive news story because this can also help the finetics which wanted to see more of the great group.

    I think this is a great act of kindness since even the homeless deserve somewhere to go during freezing temperatures and it is so sweet of this man to offer to pay for hotels for the homeless.These homeless peaple were camping out in tents whilst others snuggled up by the fire.

    New pill can deliver insulin.
    Some diabetes patients will soon be able to say goodbye to needles after MIT have created capsules that does the same job. These capsules deliver insulin to the stomach of type 2 diabetes patients via the digestion system.
    These can help children because they do not have to carry needles around with them. This can help as guards do not having to question parents at music concerts due to having needles. this can make lives easy.

    The thing that makes me happy is seeing people giving to the homeless and being kind for no reason. When people help endangered animals or homeless animals just animals in general. It makes me so happy. I love it when people stand up to bullying and conquer their dreams and goals. I love seeing people happy and enjoying life and not caring about what people think of them.

    The headline that has made me happy was that A high school recreated graduation for a student who missed it because he was in a coma. This makes me smile because it shows is that even when something bad happens you can always catch up and it will show you that even though you may not realise it, people are always on your side.

    The headline that made me happy was that children are being helped with air pollution risks in London. This made me happy because if the air pollution gets any worse, it can affect children and their health: it might damage their lungs. Furthermore, if it keeps them health and safe from the pollution, it is good because it prevents more young children and kids getting sick because of the contagious airs.

    "She travels to tell stories, hear the homeless, and feed them" Annalisa Parent travels around the world, telling stories to the homeless, and in return they tell theirs to her, and she is always there to listen. As if being friendly wasn't enough, she goes ahead and feeds them too! This made me feel really quite happy, because the homeless are still people, and Annalisa treats them that way - the proper way! I also think doing this supports them, and leaves them feeling joyful and hopeful!

    News Headline: Ministry Stories Gives Kids A Voice. This headline made me happy because, like 2019 live, I think everyone should be able to have a voice, and it’s even better if it is children. I think it’s good for children to have a voice because, in my opinion, children are more creative than adualts- therefore it would for adualts to be able to hear kids opinions. Furthermore, kids aren’t able to vote in elections until they are sixteen years old in a England, and by letting children have a voice in the world fair because in my opinion everyone should have free speech and be aloud to have a voice that should be heard.

    ‘Touching moment three young men help an 89-year-old woman and 100-year-old husband into their car is recorded by a cop struck by their kindness’

    I think we need to see more positive acts and images from all walks of life from the media, especially ones like this because people are so quick to label young men with negative stereotypes. So for once it was so nice to see these young men been applauded for their kindness! I highly recommend everyone to see it because it will definitely put a smile to your face!

    Free hotline for youngsters has helped hundreds of thousands with everything from homework to sadness.
    I loved this headline because teenagers are likely to go through a lot of crisis's like stress because of exams, depression, suicidal thoughts, etc.. I have sometimes been very disgruntled by this since I don't want people my age going through something like this when they've got their whole life ahead of them. Knowing about this hotline made my day.
    As teenagers we sometimes find it hard to talk to the people close to you because we might feel embarrassed or we don't want to put to much stress on our loved ones. But now that we have this hotline we have someone to share our burden with and just to talk to. This hotline might even save lives!

This makes me smile because at the end of the day both of them are happy because one of the person helped the someone and the other person is happy because they got something to eat or somewhere to stay.

    We have watched "Wonder" and I thought to myself when no-one wanted to be August's friend "I would be his friend!" but I have also learnt that even if people say you are ugly what matters most is what their personality is like not their appearance.But I'm thinking ,is everyone completely different?What are the chances of being avoided?Do secondary school children always say to their friends,"oh,don't go near that person,you'll get the plague!"whenever they talk about a person they call "UGLY".In my opinion everyone is beautiful,yes you may think a person is disgusting but they might have a sense of humor .What I would advise you to do is just be normal and talk to that person and find what they actually are like.

    Disney: Girl asks why movie Princess never wear glasses
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/47117419
    This girl wrote a letter to Disney asking why none of the princess' wear glasses. Furthermore, I think that the majority of us believe that Disney Princess' are beautiful. Most young girls dream of being a Disney princess, but some of them may wear glasses. Lowri doesn't want young girls to feel as if they aren't beautiful just because they wear glasses.
    This is a very important message to spread because we should be happy with who we are.

    Meet the Woman Who Bought 20 Hotel Rooms for Homeless During Polar Vortex:
    This shows that there are still people in the world who always do an act of kindness and there are people who care for others besides themselves. This makes me feel happy because it shows despite all that is happening people are still loving to people lower than us. It also brings hope that some day the world will be full of peace, harmony and equality to all through a little act of kindness. Also it encourages us to do the same even if it's not the same or greater than what this woman did but it does make a difference in the world.

The cat did save the turtle before it died on the beach, the cats owner was aware and the owner picked up the dry turtle and lifted it back into the turquoise, blue water. Whilst, the baby turtle was swimming in the water the turtle was understanding why the cat was saving him and the turtle was managing to stay alive and started swimming away to his family!!!!!

    The newspaper title that made me joyous is that doctors have finally found a cure for cancer. My cousin had cancer this year and when I heard that there was a cure for cancer, I rushed to the hospital and showed the newspaper to the doctors. Sadly, the doctors did not know what cure this was talking about so I told my cousin's mother that we needed to take him to a different hospital: they had the cure for cancer. She agreed to take him to one of the hospitals that had the cure for cancer which was London Bridge Hospital. When we got there I saw doctors all around my cousin until his mother asked the doctor if they have the cure for cancer. He said that they did have the cure and they immediately took him to one of the hospital wards. I came back two days ago and I saw that my cousin looked alright and healthy. So that is the newspaper headline that made me happy.

    Opening a new theme park can be fun because you are spending time with your friends and family and going on amazing rides, that, in my opinion fulfills people happiness. But, theme parks produce multiple amounts of smoke, which is bad for the environment because smoke is breaking the o-zone layer, which in the future the sun will shine brighter and has a risk of the human species dying.

This made me happy because the girl looked really chuffed and really excited that she had become an officer. This is a good story because it is sharing that even if you have had any problems you can still do what you want to achieve. I found out the story on BBC News.

    “Boxer donated 9 million purse from fight to house the homeless“

    I think this is a good headline because this shows that the boxer is not a self-centred person. It also shows that he is a friendly person and cares about the homeless, most people don’t respect the homelessness around the world. Donating money like that can help prevent homelessness. Seeing people sitting on the streets makes me feel quite emotional as they sit there in the cold and they must be hungry without any food. So getting a home for them is the right thing to do.

    Hello Tiff, I'm not exhilarated globe but just to answer the question. Whether the prison allows it or not, I don't think would change anyone's opinion because as much the convicts might deserve to be in prison they are human and need to maintain relationships with those closest to them. Many prisons obviously won't allow phones for security reasons but prisons at least in my opinion are ineffective when trying to maintain the relationships between people.

    As for my opinion, I think that this is a very good idea but even if I know the fact of whether this is allowed or not it wouldn't change my opinion.

    ‘They Set Up Emergency Shelter Near Wildfire Disaster Zone and Took in Dozens of Wandering Cats’ This article made me feel content because the company, (The Alley Cats Recovery Centre) has been saving vulnerable cats for a long duration of time and it seems like they are very passionate towards what they do. This made me emotional as I am inspired by their occupation. Furthermore, they are also giving the animals an opportunity to become re homed and have a better life (they put each cat for adoption for thirty days however sometimes it is longer so that the cats can reunite with the correct family.). So therefore, not only are they saving animals which deserve to be saved, they are helping the animals by giving them another chance. For instance, in one of their cases, a cat was submerged in snow however the company assisted the cat and they made an exceptional recuperation. Overall, the article was astounding, and it made my day.

    Headteachers back thousands of schoolchildren (Some with their parents) walk out (strike) of lessons in climate change protest on the 15th of February 2019.

    This headline makes me feel positive because the children are even missing their own lesson to help the Earth to protect from the air pollution currently happening around us, which is causing the climate change. This is vital since if the children or even adults breathe the toxic gas (such as carbon monoxide), it can harm anywhere in your body, breathing problems, reduced lung function, respiratory illnesses, cancer, asthma, reduced ability for blood to bring oxygen to the body, eye/nose/throat irritation, damaged brain, early death, liver damage and many more diseases. They are protesting since they are also trying to help the environment in the earth to thrive. The environment as well as all the living organisms are poisoned and harmed with the toxins. In addition, the air pollution will cause a crack in the ozone layer and the UV rays will come through the crack and harm our skin so it is essential that we keep the environment safe.

    I think that is a good and a bad thing.

So my conclusion is that cops can do that but only when they have spare time and are not in a car chase or going to a serious crime scene.

    On 26 September 1983, three weeks after the Soviet military had shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007, Petrov was the duty officer at the command center for the Oko nuclear early-warning system when the system reported that a missile had been launched from the United States, followed by up to five more. Petrov judged the reports to be a false alarm,[1] and his decision to disobey orders, against Soviet military protocol,[2] is credited with having prevented an erroneous retaliatory nuclear attack on the United States and its NATO allies that could have resulted in large-scale nuclear war. Investigation later confirmed that the Soviet satellite warning system had indeed malfunctioned. This Is Very Memorable as he stopped world war 3 from happening.

    "Big charity ball which raised £16k for Sue Ryder Hospice set to return." This has come from the local newspaper.
    In a world that is full of negative headlines I think this is something that is incredibly positive because it shows that the majority of the world still care and there are good people out there. Sue Ryder is a charity that cares for lots of people with lots of illnesses and the nurses do a great job but they need money and support to keep this going. They are optimistic that it will be a success this year because of how great it was last year. This means the care people need can keep on being provided for years to come.

    I found the headline that says 'Tiger, lions and leopards living in same region on Earth for first time in 27 years after big cat returns'. This is good because it shows that the area is developing and conservation is working. The protection of tigers is working. There are less than 500 tigers in Asia so to see one on camera is a great sight because it could mean that numbers are increasing. This means the tiger population could eventually stop facing extinction.

    I found the headline which read 'Surfing a plastic wave of change'. This makes me happy, because it can show that people have actually started to realise what an effect plastic has on our planet. People could have eventually changed their ways and stopped littering plastic, as it is finding its way into many dangerous places, such as seas and oceans. This can help our sea life as many sea creatures are dying due to them thinking that floating plastic is actually their prey. This means that many sea creatures may not be on the verge of extinction as they are now struggling to keep a grip on their survival!

    This is a brilliant piece of news because Pangolins are a rare animal/species and there are 8 species of pangolin in the world. Pangolin numbers are decreasing rapidly due to illegal animal smuggling. The fact that they have captured images of them in the wild suggests that their numbers might be rising! Even if this isn't true the new information could help people save the Pangolin species.

    Germany to close all 84 of its coal-fired power plants, will rely primarily on renewable energy

    https://www.latimes.com/world/europe/la-fg-germany-coal-power-20190126-story.html?utm_source=The+Crunch&utm_campaign=83ff4b7529-THE_CRUNCH_55_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_aa18ea5b4e-83ff4b7529-408699257

    You might have already heard about how petrol & diesel cars will be banned in the near future but a similar trend is happening with renewable energy. For instance, Germany is planning on shutting down all of its coal-fired plants. This made me happy because we only have one Earth and it will be a huge problem if it will be inhospitable, especially if we have not migrated to another planet. Even if we do manage to leave our current planet behind, every other animal will probably not be as fortunate enough.

    The great thing about this scenario is that this decision has been made by a well-known and powerful country, hence a lot more people and even the other governments of other countries will hear about it so it would be more likely to cause a ripple effect! Earlier, I mentioned that Germany was going to abort all of its coal power stations. Because it is quite a big country, this will equate to many tonnes of greenhouse gases being prevented from warming our planet. There are 84 of them situated there. This might not sound like that many but they generate gargantuan amounts of power so only a few are needed to power millions of homes.

    'Grandma strangles rabid bobcat with her bare hands'. I chose this headline because in a time of largely negative headlines, it provides an amazing story of a badass grandma who took matters into her own hands when attacked by a wild animal. DeDe Phillips, 46, strangled the bobcat in silence because her granddaughter was sleeping upstairs. She was in the process of attaching a 'women who rarely make history' sticker to her truck when the rabid animal attacked her. I think this story is a wonderful example of a brave, strong woman who wasn't afraid to do what she had to do.

    ‘Safety Officers Calm Violent Man By Singing and Dancing’

    After taking the wrong medication, Walker who has autism was attacking his parents and found himself in the ER. The officers spent over two hours singing and dancing children's songs to calm him down.

    This is one of those amazing, heartwarming stories that makes you think ‘wow!’ Such lovely kind-hearted officers that knew how to respond to a situation that could have easily taken a wrong turn. It also makes you wonder whether all police officers and emergency responders, should all be trained on how to interact with people who have disabilities or behavioural issues. How you respond can make a huge difference to the outcome of a situation.

    11-year-old Ruby Kate spends a lot of time at nursing homes in Harrison, Arkansas, where her mother works as a nurse.

    While there, Ruby Kate learned that many of the residents had little financial means. They are allotted $40 per month for "extras" - anything not covered under room and board
    Ruby Kate recalls the moment that sparked her project:

    "One day as my mom and I were leaving the nursing home, a patient named Pearl was glued to the exit doors staring for a long time at something. I figured whatever it was must be pretty exciting because I hadn't seen anything exciting all day. So I hurried to catch up to her before whatever this was disappeared. I thought maybe it was a baby bird? A wreck in the parking lot? Ambulance?

    I get up there and there is a normal dog being led out on a leash to a car by a normal lady. That was it! Boring. I asked her what was going on and she said that was her dog of 12ish years. The dog had come to visit for the day and she was staring at the door because she didn't know the next time she would see her dog again.

    Pearl's face was so sad. I thought of all the things in this world Pearl could have, she would probably just ask for more visits with her dog. I know it costs $12 for a pet sitter/visit. I'm eleven and I have enough money saved in my piggy bank to get Pearl a few visits with her dog."


    She wanted to help, so she started a project and Facebook page called "Three Wishes for Ruby's Residents."

    Her mother, Amanda, helped her set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for the wishes.

    Ruby Kate grabbed a notebook and went from room to room asking residents, "If you could have three wishes, what would they be?

    Ellen and Robert Hughes expected the worst when they took their son, Walker, who had been on a violent rampage, to Loyola University Medical Center in Illinois.

    But they were inspired by two hospital public safety officers who calmed him down by singing and dancingAfter a "paradoxical reaction" to a medicine that was supposed to calm Walker down, he became extremely violent. He rampaged through the house that day, tackled his father to the ground and started biting him.

    Their doctor suggested they take Walker to the hospital immediately.

    On the way to the ER, Walker pulled his mother's hair and tried to strangle her from the back seat.

    As soon as they entered the hospital, Walker bit his mother's hand and she screamed.

    "Picture it," she tells The Chicago Tribune, "here's this fragile little mom, the aged parents. Walker's huge and he's violently attacking me and suddenly there's all these cops on him. I'm thinking, 'My God, they're gonna kill him'."


    In the room where Walker had been taken for tests and medication, he kept bolting off the examination table. Instead of using force to restrain him, the officers took a different approach.

    For two and a half hours, the officers danced. They sang children's songs. They harmonized on the "Mr. Rogers" theme song.

    "Walker loved it," Ellen said. "He was kind of mystified and charmed and started smiling. They were men his size who considered him a real person. It's scary when people don't think you're a real person. You have autism and you can't talk — but you're a person. It's scary to be treated like a lion from the zoo. We've been to the doctor and the hospitals a million times and I've never seen anything like these guys."

    Walker is currently getting good care now and recovering from taking the wrong medication.

    Father Thanks Stranger for Entertaining His Daughter in the Airport: ‘This is the world I want for her’

    The man named Joseph entertained Kevin Armentrout’s daughter for 45 minutes, taught her how to draw pictures on his tablet; watched cartoons with her; and even accepted her generous offer to share her snacks.

    The father said,“Watching them in that moment, I couldn’t help but think, different genders, different races, different generations, and the best of friends. This is the world I want for her.”

    This is a really heartwarming story where you think, ‘wouldn’t it be so nice if this was just an ordinary everyday life where people just interact with one another more rather than staring at their phones’. And I guess I’m guilty for that!

This shows that some people are actually trying to help animals survive, and this could also mean that they are not just helping otters but also helping other animals too!

    I found the headline 'Black leopard spotted in Africa, Tiger spotted in India'. A tiger was spotted in India for the first time in nearly 3 decades and a black leopard was spotted in Africa for the first time in 100 years.

    This makes me happy, because it shows that people have finally changed their ways and as a result, wildlife that had previously left the area has come back. It can show that the people that are living there have realised that there is no longer any wildlife living their and so they have tried to change that. This could mean that we now see a rise in sightings of these animals, as they are not feeling as threatened by the environment.

    ‘‘Dog Leads Ambulance Through Maze of Alleyways to Save Owner’
    I found this article heart-warming and positive. This dog tried to save his owner that had collapsed in an alleyway. The dog leads the team throughout, and they eventually found the man! This was inspiring as you would never expect a golden retriever to try to help, however everyone was amazed! The dog waited for a while, until finally he made signals to the van, and they started to follow him. The golden retriever, then, kept looking behind him/her so that they could see if the ambulance was following him. This article made my day as it shows that even animals can save lives. The ambulance were very grateful, since if the dog was not there, they may have not got to the man in time. The owner, working at a garbage centre, was finally saved. On another article, it also mentioned that the man had collapsed from drinking too much. He, then, was admitted to hospital. Overall, I love the fact how, there are some animals which are willing to help! There is a video included if you would like to watch it, to witness the loyal dog and his heroic save: https://www.sunnyskyz.com/good-news/3185/Dog-Leads-Ambulance-Through-Maze-Of-Alleyways-To-Save-Owner

    Former Presidential Chef Uses Lottery Win To Feed The Homeless
    I found this article inspiring as a former chef even though he won the lottery (which is nearly impossible) he gave it to the homeless! Roberto Mendoza life was not always perfect. He was the chef for Barack Obama, Trump etc however he did not have a great life. He grew up in El Salvador during the war and they only had small rations of food. He stated that, ‘’I know what it is like to be hungry.’’ So therefore, he gave all he had to the homeless as he put himself in their shoes. He also stated that ‘What is in my heart, is cooking for the homeless’ With the amount of money he has left, he would love to build a cafeteria for the people who are struggling. This story made me very content as some people would keep it for themselves however the way he was brought up influenced his actions! I love this story and I am very delighted after reading these positive articles! It is actions such as this one, which make me feel glad to have a place in this world.

    ‘’Bus Driver Asks Every Kid What They Want For Christmas And Buys Them All A Gift’’
    In my opinion, I believe this was fantastic on the bus driver, Curtis Jenkins’, part! He made the decision to ask all the elementary school children what they wanted for Christmas so they could have a good time! He stated that, ‘’Seeing those faces on the kids was more than anything I could ever do with the money.’’ This also explains that he would rather make the children happy, then saving the money for something he wanted. This relates to the previous article that I had wrote about as Roberto also did something that came, genuinely, from his heart. His main purpose was to show each child that they had value and that they were all important people. There were many gifts including a new bike! He had previously saved a large sum of money, in order to prepare for this day. His wife mentioned he should do something like this, because some parents cannot afford to buy Christmas gifts, so he saved them the trouble! I was very happy to have come across this article because it stood out from the rest! I love positive articles and I shall read more in the future!

It is also very good as it will inspire other children to speak out to stop climate change, and if more children are inspired to do this, and more children do something, making an impact, then we can all help to stop global warming, which is slowly bringing about our end.

    Keller Sutherland, a first grade teacher at Ellen Woodside Elementary in South Carolina, was driving home last week when she noticed a child riding his bike down highway 25 in Greenville.

    Her intuition told her something was wrong, so she turned around and planned to ask him where he was going.

    When Sutherland stepped out of her car to approach the boy she immediately recognized him.

    "Oh my gosh that's Cameron," she recalled. "That's my student, I had him last year."

    Cameron, 7, told Sutherland that his diabetic father had collapsed at his house. He said he tried to call 911, but he didn't know the passcode to his father's phone. He then tried the neighbors, but no one was home. His last resort was to ride his bike five miles to his grandmother's house.


    Emergency responders arrived at Cameron's home and found his father barely conscious on the bathroom floor. He was treated at the scene and has made a full recovery.

    Sutherland says as a teacher, her job goes far beyond the classroom.

    "I truly care for these kids," said Sutherland. This is very positive because somehow a 7 year old boy saved his dad's life.

    Aha! It seems people have noticed that stars were awarded for positive entries, with a source and explanation. Some people have entered the competition more than once and won lots of stars. Good ingenuity but, unfortunately, not a fair way to win! These stars have skewed the results on the leaderboard, meaning that people who has worked hard all year have been knocked off by this competition. We'll be removing some of these stars to make things fair and square!

This competition is now closed.
