Good News - #8

Here is another round of three news stories with a positive focus. Sometimes the hardest part is chosing which of the few to link to from the many good news stories available. So, here goes. (Due to the dynamic nature of news I do not know how long any of the links will remain active).

Albania has been a country of deep political unrest, and its capital probably has not been high on the list of vacation choices. The mayor of Tirana refuses to let his city die, and instead has taken charge to improve the once ravaged capital in many ways

a new form of lighting drastically increases the energy efficiency and increases light output at the same time. It uses the Sun, but is not solar power in the traditional sense, it's a clever solution that holds much promise.

In Afghanistan two prominent warloads have laid down their weapons. In a show of support, and a desire for inclusion, in up coming parliamentary elections in that country. Two thumbs up to anyone who chooses political discourse over violence.

Thanks and may you keep finding good news when it happens:)
