Read between the lines.  The best news is news you can use.  

Every time you read a headline or story, whether it is in a newspaper, magazine, or online ask yourself three simple questions:

          1.  What opportunity exists here?

          2. What opportunities could be created by this news?

          3. In what ways can I/we assist?

From now on use the news for the benefit others and yourself.

“For myself, I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use being anything else”. 
-Sir Winston Churchill
