My family today woke up normally, had breakfast, played with grandson, read, worked, ate more, rebuild the snowman from yesterday, read a book to said grandson etc.

News? Interesting? No, of course not: first, no one would really be interested in our day's routine course, also it's so w/o violence that newspapers would find it completely irrelevant. In the linked piece Steven #Pinker makes the point (not for the first time) that we are mislead in our world view by isolated reporting of the bad events and backs it up by numbers. For more good news on the future of our civilization, listen to Hans  #Rosling .
