Daily Good News 23: Advancement in Solar Power, A Man Stops A Robbery, and A Teen Inventor Goes Global

I’m getting more organized, here. Okay, so, good news will come in categories. You’ll have a hero type story. Another story will be able a charitable move. Perhaps one will be helpful Samaritan type. You get the latest on the medical and technical advancements. More of a newsletter type thing. I’m constantly making tweaks and researching ideas and such.




And now, here’s the latest good and positive news.

First, a hero. A man witnessed an elderly woman be robbed and decided to do something about it. This is one of those stories where, it’s great he helped, but, what if the suspect was armed? Dangerous? Still, he felt he could do something, and he did:

Shifflet said he was driving along the 200 block of South Douglas Road at about 8:45 a.m. when he saw the woman walking along the sidewalk and noticed Miller coming toward her.

“I don’t know if he punched her in the shoulder or hit her in the shoulder to knock her off balance,” Shifflet said. “He grabbed her bag, she fell to the ground, and he dragged her for a couple of feet.”

With the woman’s purse in hand, Miller jumped into the waiting Malibu. That’s when Shifflet used his Honey Do’s Home Repair work truck and trailer to block the driveway, Shifflet said.

The story takes a speciousness turn with this:

Miller got out of the Malibu, ran back to the woman, returned her bag, told her he did it on a dare and took off running, Shifflet said.

Eeehhhh…I’m not feeling that.

Indians have developed a way to lower the cost of solar power.

“A simple and economical way of processing to fabricate graphene-based solar cell has been developed by our scientists,” Gujarat Energy and Research Management Institute (GERMI) Director T Harinarayana said.

“Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, has many novel properties that attracted researchers around the world. High electrical conductivity (better than copper) and very high (90%) transparency makes graphene an ideal material for fabrication of transparent and current spreading electrodes,” GERMI said in a research paper.

This is great for people that want to go green, but simply can’t afford to yet.

Lastly, a teen has invented a simpler and safer way to deal with kindling.

The Kindling Cracker operates by tapping wood with a mallet onto a stationary blade that splits it. It requires less force to split wood than using an axe and is suitable for all ages, and for people with arthritis and other disabilities.

Her invention has been a hit and many folks from around the world are interested in this. And her family is helping her along the way.

Awesome stuff.
