Almost 19 years ago I set out on a journey that today we describe as “solutions journalism”. First in Ode and now in The Intelligent Optimist we have published stories from the perspective that for every problem there’s at least the beginning of a solution. As we did so, we discovered optimism as truly the best strategy for a healthy, happy and successful life. Optimism is often misunderstood. That’s why I have decided to launch a blog to explore the benefits of optimism. My first post is about Pollyanna, the story that is so often used to dismiss optimism. You can read it here: http://bit.ly/19ZmTJ5. You may also want to download my “7 Reasons to be an Optimist” Here: http://ow.ly/pY2pO

A Stanford analysis of 237 studies of organic food concluded that organic food is no more nutritious than their conventional counterparts. That was the catchy hedline. There was much more in the report, as Maria Rodale eloquently writes in this post. It is not just what is in the food, it is also about what is NOT in the food.

It may not look like it but this is a stove, a fridge and an energy generator at the same time. Simple, cool technology. It is based on the Stirling Motor, a 19th century invention that we recently featured http://ow.ly/d8k3r

Making the world a better place can be really easy: Eat together at home. Research shows that regular family dinners make kids healthier and happier. How often do you share a meal at home?

Yes, let's support a Tesla Museum. And let's continue studying his work and experiments. There is still much about electricity that Tesla understood and we don't. A lot of energy could be discovered that way.
