8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. — Luke 2:8-15 | King James Version (KJV) The King James Version Bible is in the public domain.

[image ID: Text reading Texas State Aquarium staff stated that the animals have been getting a little restless. One of the employees had an idea to let some of the land animals spend time with some of the sea animals, and it has worked out brilliantly.
Putting the sloths near the dolphins was the biggest surprise of all. The dolphins are absolutely delighted with the sloths, and the sloths, normally very quiet animals, have been squeaking replies back to the dolphins for hours at a time. Who would have guessed these two species would be such a great match?
There is a photo of two dolphins in a large pool, their heads peeking out above the water to look at a brown sloth, who is hanging on a branch. End ID]

Przewalski’s horses were once completely extinct in the wild, but have since been reintroduced due to captive breeding efforts. However, they are still considered critically endangered, partially because the genetics for nearly the entire species can be traced back to 12 horses from the captive breeding program.
This cloned foal was created using the DNA of a cryopreserved male from 1980, which adds new genetic diversity to the current population. The success of this cloning also bodes well for other critically endangered species that have cryopreserved genetics, as this technique could eventually be used to provide “genetic rescue” to them as well.

An Ongoing Daily List of Good Shit Because I'm Tired of All The Corona Talk:
Australia is no longer on fire
U-Haul is offering free 30 day storage for displaced college students and discounted rates on moving services
The second person in the world was just cured of HIV!
There's going to be a new Dr. Seuss book this fall, published from a manuscript he wrote that was discovered 21 years after his death
Student loan payments are being halted with no interest until the pandemic clears
A zoo in Indiana recently announced the birth of two Chacoan Peccaries, an animal that is currently endangered (and also adorable)
On that train, two cheetah cubs were recently born in an Ohio zoo via vitro fertilization, which could seriously boost efforts to help endangered species survive
One more about animals - a komodo dragon in a Tennessee zoo just gave birth without male involvement! Which isn't something new, but it is rare and cool.
The state of Virginia has banned conversion therapy for minors recently, and is the first Southern state to do so
Scotland has created the worlds first Carbon Positive Gin made from peas instead of wheat, which reduces the carbon footprint created by normal gin making. Without wheat....it might also be a gluten free alternative (not certain on that one, you'd have to reach out to the creators). You can buy it here
The worlds first 3D printed houses were just created in Mexico, with the hopes to combat homelessness. They are designed to withstand seismic activity and come with two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
Disneyland is donating all acceptable food to food banks in Orange County during their closure
The Olympic Games are hoping to become "climate positive" by the year 2030, and by next year they plan to start planting an "Olympic Forest" in Africa in an effort to combat desertification
Hopefully I can add more day to day, but even the small stuff makes you smile sometimes. Yesterday at my coffee shop, a woman tipped me five dollars because, and I quote, "Just because there's a virus doesn't mean I can't tip you for my coffee."
The small shit matters as much as the big shit. Good luck, try to look at the good and also try and DO some good, and wash your hands.

Some good news from earlier this year that I missed: a student named Dasia Taylor, age 17, created medical sutures that change color to show if a wound is infected. This invention could save the lives of people around the world, especially women who receive Cesarean sections.

And in good news of the day, IKEA in the Netherlands has added paid time off for gender reassignment surgery to their collective labour agreements. Meaning that transpeople will now get up to 24 weeks of paid leave for both medical and non-medical treatments.
The COC and TransNetwerkNederland are also working hard on making this law, instead of a choice of the company. However, IKEA is the first to put it in their Collective Labour Agreement (CAO in Dutch), and probably more companies will follow.
This was done, by the way, with help of the rainbow department of the FNV, a.k.a. our labour union. So you know, unionize!

In 2018, Hawai’i became the first state to pass a law banning the sale of sunscreens that contain chemicals known to be toxic to coral reefs. The ban went into effect at the beginning of 2021.
Since then, Palau, the Virgin Islands, and Key West in Florida have created their own bans on sunscreen that is not reef safe. The ban also caused several sunscreen manufacturers to re-evaluate their formulas to make them reef safe and alerted customers to the impacts sunscreen can have on coral reefs.
Now, officials in Hawai’i are working on adding additional reef-harming chemicals to the list of those banned for sale in the state. If they are successful, the updates to the ban will take effect in 2023. 
“It has been a super example of grassroots community and committed state leaders uniting to make something happen, and that started right here in Hawaii…The word spread around the world.” -Lisa Bishop

A man from London has become the second person in the world to be cured of HIV, doctors say.
Adam Castillejo is still free of the virus more than 30 months after stopping anti-retroviral therapy.
He was not cured by the HIV drugs, however, but by a stem-cell treatment he received for a cancer he also had.

More than 15 thousand workers have already participated in the initiative, together with the Municipal Environment Department.

Thanks to the program, hundreds of families have benefited in different ways.

In several communities, such as Rocinha, the risk of floods, fires and landslides has been reduced thanks to greater rainfall runoff from the hills.

Air quality improved and soil erosion decreased, preserving several plant species.

Reforested areas such as Morro do Sumaré have recovered the quality of their rivers and groundwater.

With the reintroduction of fruit plants, some species of amphibians, mammals, and reptiles that were previously in some degree of extinction have returned to the areas.

[Image description: Morro do Andaraí - 1996 | 2019.]
More than 136 reforestation projects have been carried out since 1986, organized mainly by the Refloresta Rio, Mutirão do Reflorestamento and Rio Verde de Novo initiatives.

The biome reforested here is Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, which was intensely explored and logged over the centuries. Of all the original biome in the city of Rio, only 20% is preserved. In the whole of Brazil, there are 12% of the original Atlantic Forest.
