Good News - The Baywatch supermodel, Pamela Anderson has made another rescue!!  She has been an avid animal supporter since her youth.  Now a vegan, Pamela was only in her early teens when she became vegetarian.  The blonde beauty actively campaigns and poses for the animal protection organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).   She is definitely showing that she has a big heart!

So how did she end up saving a homeless dog in India?  We are guessing that she ran through India in slow motion wearing that red lifeguard outfit and scooped the cute little canine up in her arms and boarded the first plane back to The States.  In actuality, she first discovered all of the homeless dogs in India during a promotional trip and asked one of her PETA India peers to help her adopt one.  They found an adorable dog at a construction site in Mumbai.  Pamela has named her Pyari.

 

Pamela Anderson states: "I'm thrilled to be able to give Pyari a loving home. I already have rescued dogs, and I urge everyone to join me in adopting a homeless dog from their local animal shelter or the streets instead of buying a so-called 'pedigree'."

Great work Pamela!  We are proud of you at Good World News!

 

Peace & Love,

Sonic Youth, an alternative rock band from NYC is known for their custom tweaking of their instruments.  While on tour in Orange County, CA in 1999, the truck holding all of their gear was stolen.  The truck was discovered several days later....completely empty.  All of their guitars, amps, and pedals were gone for good....or they thought.

The band has some incredible fans.  These diligent fans have been on the lookout for the stolen gear ever since their disappearance.  The fans have been scouring the web and pawn shops to let Sonic Youth know about any of their equipment.  This week the sixth and seventh guitars to be recovered appeared only days apart.  Thurston Moore's white jazzmaster was discovered on ebay by a great fan in Belgium.  Lee Ralaldo commented about the fan, "He wrote saying, 'Check out this auction. The color's different, but it definitely looks like your guitar. The serial number matches,'".  The other guitar was Lee's Jazzmaster and it was discovered at a pawn shop.  Fans were commenting online about the guitar at the pawn shop and said that it looked like one of the stolen guitars.

Ranaldo discussed some of the other equipment recovery stories on their website:

These two scruffy teenage boys came up. They told us they knew about our stolen guitars. One claimed his uncle was involved with stealing the van. We were like, 'yeah, sure kid.' But he sent us these anonymous pictures of our gear in basements-- foot pedals where you could see our crew guys' writing on the sides, and somebody's sneaker on top. These kids were destitute. They'd been kicked out of their homes, living in a car in L.A. We said, 'we'll give you a few hundred dollars each for them.' It did happen.

Sonic Youth has some great fans!  Ranaldo states his appreciation, "It's kind of wild.  After all this time, things are still surfacing thanks to the diligence of fans."

Great story.  Here at Good World News, we are glad that the fans have shown their support and appreciation for the group!

 

Peace & Love,

Part of the reason why so many people love Batman is because under the dark mask is a normal human just like all of us.  He does not have any superpowers or magic ability.  Under all of the cool gadgets and costumes, he just has his wits, his heart, and his determination to make the world a better place.


Christian Bale, the actor in the recent "Dark Knight" batman films is proving to be a real life superhero.  Bale flew Jayden and his family to Anaheim, California to go to Disneyland.

Jayden's mom wrote an ecstatic message on Facebook - “Finally can share!!! Christian sent us to LA and we had lunch at Disney club 33 on wed!!  He and his family were so awesome and down to earth!!!”

We can definitely say that Christian Bale is a real life superhero!  He has made a young boy's dream come true :)

 

Peace & Love,
