University Students Create a Good-News Website
Clarkson University announced the following:
A pair of Clarkson University students have launched a website they hope will combat a constant flow of bad news for its audience, while also helping readers stay informed.
Maximus Powers and Selorm Bruce have started allgoodthings.news, a website with the mission to deliver positive, clear, factual, and relevant stories to its audience while prioritizing their emotions. …
The pair work daily to personally curate news stories from a variety of news sources that allows its readers to stay informed about what is happening in the world while offering that news in a positive light. Readers can also submit news stories to the site for consideration. …
[According to Powers,] ‘It’s so easy to look at these changes from a bad perspective, especially when that’s how news sites present it. Now is the time when people need things framed positively for once. All Good Things has a big responsibility, to leave visitors feeling like “today is a good day,” which won’t be going away anytime soon. …
[Bruce adds,] ‘I want people to understand that there will be “not so good news” at times because more often than not, it is important. A simple way to put it is that I want people to be aware of the bad things happening, but to not get caught up in it so that they forget all the good happening as well.’
