OGN Thursday

Bundle of uplifing, positive news snippets to brighten the day.

  • Pretty in Pink: Good news for the all-conquering Whispering Angel rosé brand as it becomes the top-selling still French wine by dollar sales in the US.

  • Zero emission aeroplanes that use ammonia as jet fuel rather than kerosene could take to the skies 'within years', British scientists claim. Wouldn't it be wonderful to enjoy guilt-free air travel!?

  • An investor group managing more than $16 trillion has launched the world's first step-by-step plan to help pension funds and others align their portfolios with the Paris Agreement on climate change.

  • Franz Kafka and the Lost Doll: the perfect heart-warming metaphor for the old ’normal’.

  • Tonight's the last night to enjoy the Perseids meteor strike at its peak. If it's a clear night, it's well worth taking a look up into the night sky. You should see one every few minutes.

  • The former wife of Jeff Bezos, MacKenzie Scott has already given away $1.7 billion to non-profit organisations and has signed the Giving Pledge, promising to give away her billions “until the safe is empty.” So, good causes can look forward to at least another $60 billion in donations.

  • Thanks to the efforts of the UK charity Sea Life Trust, two female beluga whales have been freed from captivity in China and transported to Iceland, where the world’s first retirement home for oceanic performers is located.

  • It’s a wedding almost three decades in the making, as a couple who first met in college have tied the knot 28 years later. Greg and Janet Dabice were Homecoming King and Queen at New Jersey’s Montclair State University, being crowned together at the 50-yard line of the stadium. Back then, party animal Greg wasn’t Janet’s type. “I would’ve never dated him in college,” she said. Each got married and had families of their own, but recently found themselves divorced and searching for love on a dating app. By chance, Greg came across Janet’s photo.
