Hello Positopians,

Mandy and Jonathan here!

As June has come and gone, we realize this year is more than halfway over. That's right, we're now at the point where the year 2023 is less than six months away!

But don't worry, if there's any goals you wanted to achieve in 2022 there's still half a year to go! If you're yearning to do something, now may be a better time to start it than next year.

However, remember to enjoy the process as well! Ursula Le Guin once said, “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”

We hope every journey you are beginning or ending or going through is going well for you, bringing you growth, satisfaction, and joy.

There are some large things happening in the world right now but here are some tiny things to hopefully help make your day...

P.S. - For those of you just joining, welcome to this edition of our monthly newsletter, The Positopian, where every month, we share positive news, fiction, resources, & insights to help you become the best version of yourself!

“My mother and my father did teach us to help if you have something,” he continued. “If you have something you have to share with other people.”

With the gas station selling around 1,000 gallons a day, Singh loses about $500 per day. As a result, he and his wife are working longer hours.

Despite the losses, Singh said they have been worth it: “God gave me help. It doesn’t matter. We are not here to make money right now. I’m very happy to help the other people.”

These drones are swallowing plastic waste before it reaches the ocean

Written by: Shivan Sarna, euronews

Dutch company RanMarine has deployed several 157-centimetre wide aquatic drones called WasteSharks that capture rubbish and bring it back to land.

The drones can hold 160 litres of trash, floating plants and algae, according to RanMarine Technology.

The aquatic tech is inspired by the whale shark, which swims with its mouth wide open to capture prey.
