#R2BC Wednesday’s #GoodNews – The Prize

A lot gets said about government u-turns and usually in the negative but, on a day when Australia gets reported as the worst performer on climate change, I have to say that Australia donating to the UN Climate Fund is good to hear. That said, my favourite story has to be, after the news, that DNA co-discoverer, James Watson felt forced to sell his Nobel Prize that Russian Steel & Telecoms tycoon Alisher Usamov bought the medal specifically to return it to Watson.

Is it a day for hope? Well with maternal death rates falling, a ceasefire holding in Ukraine, and Detroit coming out of bankruptcy I’d have to say yes.

Have a great Wednesday.
