OGN Sunday

Round up of good news from around the globe for a sunny Sunday.

  • London: An image of a smiley face was projected onto the Houses of Parliament to spread an uplifting message of positivity during tough times. Any smile - particularly one that is 27 yards wide - can go a long way to cheering people up, especially when it’s directly across the river from a hospital. After all, Smiling is Infectious.

  • Germany: looks like VW has plans to electrify its classic models as recent trademark applications suggest that the e-Golf and e-Beetle are on the way.

  • India: Findings from a recent United Nation report states that the number of undernourished and hungry people in India has declined by 60 million over the last decade, and other Asian regions are also experiencing declines.

  • Zero is a concept for an incentive-based food-delivery system that could encourage consumers to use and return bioplastic containers to takeaway restaurants.

  • New York: Gov. Andrew Cuomo on announces $750 investment programme to build 50,000 charging stations and other electric-vehicle infrastructure as part of the state's long-term goal to reduce emissions.

  • France: French town of Angers has created its own Amazon with a difference. When coronavirus hit, a bunch of local businesses in Angers banded together to take on the e-commerce giant and win back shoppers for good.

  • Good news for electric car buyers: The old adage that a new car loses a third of its value the moment you drive it out of the showroom is being re-scripted by Tesla, as evidence demonstrates that the Tesla Model 3 retains almost 90% of its value over 3 years.

  • Colombia: More than 40 mayors of major cities from Montreal to Medellin met up in Bogota last week and have pledged to push for a "green and just" economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

  • Kanye West said he'd run for president and then changed his mind. Now, it seems, he's changed it again and has just taken his first official steps towards running for US president against Donald Trump and Joe Biden in November. A representative for the rapper, who recently revealed he has never voted before, filed the necessary paperwork and paid the $35,000 fee to appear on Oklahoma's presidential ballot. That could shake things up a bit!
