Good News, Positive Views, Bunny Rabbits, and Puppies - with Neil Herber

1) Person or persons unnamed have mentioned that all of my items are usually bad news, so ...


2) Good News ...

--- MUGOO is back for another year of info and opinion!

--- Dues will be due soon - a mere $40 - needed to pay for the venue. Don't be a leech! Same cost as 2 orders of haddock and chips from LaPointes.

--- Elections will be coming soon (for MUGOO). Stand for office! Overthrow your domineering overlords! Reduce the already cheap dues! (Did I mention that one year costs less than a gas fillup for most cars and is environmentally friendly?)


3) Positive Views ...

--- Most tech "news" is a recitation of data leaks and scams.

--- For a very positive spin on the state of the world, read Enlightenment Now by Steven Pinker https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enlightenment_Now

--- Or how about Factfulness by Hans Rosling https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factfulness:_Ten_Reasons_We%27re_Wrong_About_the_World_%E2%80%93_and_Why_Things_Are_Better_Than_You_Think

--- Both books are available from OPL as eBooks and paper.

--- Do NOT read anything by Chris Hedges. As one reviewer wrote "He pops up like a grouchy uncle to add commentary on everything from the global arms industry to the evisceration of American democratic institutions ... "

--- Top Google hit for "positive tech news" is Positive Technologies news which ain't so positive https://www.ptsecurity.com/ww-en/about/news/


4) Bunny Rabbits ...

--- 15 rabbit facts you probably didn't know! https://www.bluecross.org.uk/pet-advice/rabbit-facts

--- The 17 Most Important Bunny Facts of All Time  https://www.petakids.com/save-animals/rabbit-facts/

--- Bunny rabbit "binky"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HJ6weqeiQw   Slow Motion Bunny Binkies   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgH0pyo5Fbc


5) Puppies ...

--- 9 surprising facts about puppies  https://www.cbc.ca/kidscbc2/the-feed/9-surprising-facts-about-puppies  Number 9: Looking at pictures of puppies is good for you!

--- Puppy Yoga is a thing   https://www.puppyyoga.com/

--- Not to be confused with goat yoga  http://maplehillurbanfarm.com/goat-yoga-ottawa/

--- Global News actually has a puppies section!   https://globalnews.ca/tag/puppies/   Warning: not all happy stories...


6) OK, OK, so one tech story ...

--- Geeky license plate   https://arstechnica.com/cars/2019/08/wiseguy-changes-license-plate-to-null-gets-12k-in-parking-tickets/#p3


... the end
