British news media continue to report positive news. A recent wave of reports indicate that unemployment is falling, and is at its lowest level in over five years. As well, optimism in British factories is at a 40-year high. The Imperial Tobacco Company is shuttering its UK factories as cigarette sales plummet, an indication of improving health.
In the area of sustainability, a major environmental advance has been made. The first grid scale battery, a new technology that will help 'buffer' the peak need for electricity, has been installed in the United Kingdom. This new technology, just taking hold around the world, is basically like an oversized battery that comes online during peak draw times so that the higher electrical usage does not overload the system.
The headline: 'Citizen journalism puts itself on the radar of mainstream news' refers to a project begun by young journalists in Britain, through which networks of citizen reporters are being established in various countries and reporting on important issues in their local communities. This illustrates a new positive trend, away from the news being dominated by the selective viewpoint of a few large media organizations in major countries, which is helping 'bring attention to the real values of life', commented Dr Peter Warburton, Chairman of Maharishi Foundation, UK. With this broader reporting base people will hear more of what is actually going on in the world.
Another headline, 'Ethical banking is alive and kicking,' indicates that people want to know not only how the banks are using their money, but also that it is being used for ethical purposes. Banks hold a tremendous amount of customers' funds and use them to drive the economy of the world. Now there is a new trend of people choosing banks that handle their funds more economically and ethically.
All of these reports, and many others of a similar nature in the print media and on the web, explained Dr Warburton, are an indication that the trends of time are continuing to change for the better. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi predicted in the 1970s that as more people practised his Transcendental Meditation programme around the world and the quality of life began to improve as a result, this would be reflected in the press. Now more positive news, including values of transparency, accountability, and the exposure of wrongdoing, is increasingly being reported.
