The world’s getting better all the time

If you closely followed the news this year – and how could you not? – this has been an exhausting one. I thought about recommending to you, fittingly, Bloomberg’s «Pessimist’s Guide to 2028» (oh snap, there I did it), but then I came across something more uplifting. Treat yourselves to 82 developments and achievements that were actually quite great in 2017. Here’s to hoping that quote will hold for a little longer: «Ever since the Enlightenment and the invention of Science, we’ve managed to create a tiny bit more than we’ve destroyed each year.»
