Welcome to Terrific News Tuesday (TNT)!
In case this is your first time reading TNT, this column is all about good news. I know it’s hard to believe, but I won’t be complaining or criticizing anyone or anything in this column today – just writing about some terrific news that caught my attention!
Here is some of the good stuff in this edition of TNT:
- Vietnam Veterans Memorial & Zinke
- On the Road
- Chobani Yogurt
- Coachella 2017
- Stanley Cup & NBA Playoffs
Vietnam Veterans Memorial & Zinke:
It was nice to hear about Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke taking time out of his busy schedule to help members of Rolling Thunder clean the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
One other day, Zinke helped scoop snow around the Lincoln Memorial.
Applause to Zinke for making a difference and setting an example.
On the Road (Eugene Yoon):
Several years ago Eugene Yoon helped a guy he never met named Arthur Renowitzky walk again by purchasing a device to help him. Yoon raised money for the device by walking from the Mexico border to the Canadian border.
Now Yoon is helping others. Check out this “On the Road” segment to read/watch the rest of the story.
From CBS’ 60 Minutes…
Hamdi Ulukaya built the best-selling yogurt brand in the U.S. after coming here 23 years ago. Today, 70% of Chobani employees are American born, 30% are immigrants and refugees.
This is a great story of somebody starting with nothing and building a company. Read/watch the amazing story HERE.
Are you ready? The good news is that Coachella 2017 kicks off this weekend. It’s an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley, in the Colorado Desert. (Source).
Check out the lineup HERE.
Coachella is on my bucket list…
Stanley Cup Playoffs:
The good news is that the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs start Wednesday (April 12)! Who do you think will win it?
Since the NHL playoffs are starting, the NBA playoffs can’t be too far behind. The good news is that the 2017 NBA playoffs begin Saturday, April 15. Will the Cavs repeat or will the Celtics step and take care of them in the eastern conference finals? Will the Warriors or Spurs be the team to beat from the west?
