Quote of the day:
Whatever you are, be a good one. 
-Abraham Lincoln

A 5 year old girl in Kentucky, Isabella Gregory, bought ice cream from her allowance money for state troopers who were mourning the death of one of their colleagues. The little girl had noticed that they had long faces, when she was at a McDonald's with her mother. Isabella's mom, Yockey said "Isabella wanted to treat them because she knew that their friend had died, and she wanted to make them smile".

A 16 year old girl from Connecticut, Oliva Hallisey, has won this year's Google Science Fair by creating a revolutionary new test to detect the Ebola virus. Olivia's test kits -which are simple, yet cheap can detect ebola in around 30 minutes. Her unique kit can be stored at room temperature for 3 weeks. She won the top price of a $50,000 scholarship in a group of 22 other finalists.

As seen on ArchDaily's best houses of 2014, an estate bungalow by Architects- Narein Perera, this house is located in Matugama, Sri Lanka. With a selected elevated siting, it is surrounded by a rubber plantation, and allows an undisturbed view of the valley below and the hills beyond, a view that is always in flux with the changing seasons and the cycle of the paddy cultivation.

  1. I love your inspiring Friday posts. The first one really hit me in the heart! I love how little children think, and this example was wonderful. Our police have been receiving a lot of bad press, rightly and wrongly, so it's great to see a story honoring the many dedicated officers who help us every day!

    And kuddos to the young woman who devised a new, practical test for identifying ebola! Inspiring news indeed!
