"I couldn't think of protecting myself, because the babies were under my protection. I was okay, so I needed to help." Pamela Zeinoun, a nurse at Saint George Hospital in Beirut, was in charge of five babies suffering from various health issues who needed to be kept in incubators when the port explosion hit, decimating the building. She passed out on the floor. “When I woke up, I did not know where I was. I tried to go back through the door, but the door was closed shut.” Zeinoun managed to get inside with the help of a father and another nurse and were able to find the babies. Two were saved by the father and the nurse, and Pamela scooped up the remaining three.  “We started running down the stairs. There was no electricity. Blood everywhere, people screaming.” In the frenzy, Zeinoun got separated from the others. Her heart raced because she knew she had to get the babies to another hospital quickly. Their survival depended on incubators.  She walked for 40 minutes in the dark with the three babies in her arms. When she reached the next hospital, she found injured staff in a damaged building with no incubators. So she started to walk again, as no cars could get by because of the debris. Surprisingly, the babies weren't crying and she fear they may not be alive anymore. "I checked their color - are they blue or are they pink? They weren't crying. They were just sleeping, you know?" In the end, after 5 kilometers walked through chaos and debris, Pamela found a car that took her to a functioning hospital just outside Beirut, were she fit all three babies in an incubator, to keep them warm and safe. When the parents got to St George Hospital, they realised the babies weren't there anymore. Then the staff told them "Do not worry, your children are with Pamela. This is her phone number, you can contact her and see your babies." And so they did. @weeklygraphicnews @arabnews #illustration #nurse #hero #beirut #baby #pamelazeinoun #heroic #lebanon #artwork #editorialillustration #editorialart #digitalpainting #portrait #kindness #realism #truestory #inspiring #instagood #goodnews

6. Et pourquoi s'arrêterait-on en si bon chemin ?

La fédération de football brésilien a annoncé que les footballeuses toucheraient les mêmes salaires que les footballeurs.

Brazil's football governing body has announced that it's adopting an equal pay policy for both women's and men's football, becoming one of the first countries in the world to do so. "The CBF has equaled the prize money and allowances between men's and women's football, which means the women players will earn the same as the men," said Rogerio Caboclo, president of Brazil’s football association CBF. "There is no more gender difference, because CBF is treating men and women equally," he said. This means Marta, the record owner for the most goals scored in World Cups - in both men and women competitions - will earn the same as Neymar Jr, the current playmaker of the Cariocas. While the Brazilian men’s team is known for having won the World Cup a record five times, the lesser-known women's team is also one of the best in the game, with a World Cup final appearance in 2007. The team also reached the Olympic finals in 2004 and 2008. Brazil joined a small number of countries among Norway, New Zealand and Australia, to pay its men's and women's national teams the same, and just a day after the announcement, England took the same decision. ?

7. Banksy si la famille

Banksy a financé secrètement un projet de navire de sauvetage pour les migrants.

C’est peut-être le moment de retrouver les meilleures œuvres de Banksy.

“Hello Pia, I’ve read your story in the papers. You sound like a badass. I am an artist from the UK and I’ve made some work about the migrant crisis, obviously I can’t keep the money. Could you use it to buy a new boat or something? Please let me know. Well done. Banksy.” This was the email that Pia Klemp - the captain of several NGO boats that rescued thousands of people over recent years - got in September 2019. While initially she thought is a joke, it turned out Klemp was chosen by the British artist due to her political stance on the migrant crisis. “I don’t see sea rescue as a humanitarian action but as part of an anti-fascist fight." Soon Pia assembled a crew of European activists with long experience in search and rescue operations, and aquired a vessel which she named Louise Michel, after a French feminist anarchist. Painted in bright pink and featuring Banksy's artwork, the Louise Michel set sail in secrecy on 18 August under a German flag. The 31-metre motor yacht, formerly owned by French customs authorities, is smaller but considerably faster than other NGO rescue vessels. Louise Michel sails currently in the central Mediterranean where on Thursday it rescued 89 people in distress, including 14 women and four children. It is now looking for a safe seaport to disembark the passengers or to transfer them to a European coastguard vessel. With a top speed of 27 knots, the Louise Michel would be able to “hopefully outrun the so-called Libyan coastguard before they get to boats with refugees and migrants and pull them back to the detention camps in Libya”, said Klemp. The planning of the mission was carried out in secrecy between London, Berlin and Burriana, where the Louise Michel had docked to be equipped for sea rescues. Fearing that media attention could compromise their goals, Banksy’s team and the rescue activists agreed to release the news about the boat only after carrying out the first rescue. @guardian @weeklygraphicnews #illustration #banksy #goodnews #streetart #refugee #migrantcrisis #mediteranean #rescue #editorialart #artwork #lifebuoy #louisemichel #stencil #ilustragram #goodnewsfeed #graphic #humanitarian

8. Joyeux Noël

A Washington, un homme a sauvegardé 4000 tonnes d’oignons et de patates pour les donner à des banques alimentaires.

View this post on Instagram

George Ahearn, who grew up in the farming town of Othello, Washington, co-founded a non-profit after learning that Covid-19 was costing local farmers so much business that they were willing to destroy their crops. ? His non-profit has since moved nearly 8 million pounds of produce from farms in eastern Washington to the western part of the state for distribution to hundreds of food banks and meal programs. "I know these people that I grew up with on one hand, and on the other hand I know there is a need here," Ahearn, 45, told CNN. "I'm just going to connect the two dots." ? He started by calling food banks that were interested in taking some of the produce that would otherwise go to waste. But when he called the farmers, they wanted to give him truck loads of potatoes and onions -- way more than Ahearn's car could handle. ? He also had another problem: Food banks needed the potatoes and onions to be cleaned and bagged before donation. ? "What I didn't realize was the logistical nightmare, because I thought I could just show up with potatoes harvested straight from the ground and give them right to the food bank," said Ahearn, who also runs a nursing business. "I couldn't believe it." So Ahearn asked for help and he connected with his two co-founders, Nancy Balin and Zsofia Pasztor. While Balin helped organize convoys to drive across Washington to pick up the produce, Pasztor assembled volunteers to clean and bag the food. ? A week after they started, they hauled more than 60 tons of produce across the state and handed it to food banks. ??? After two convoys and some 70 tons of donated food, Ahearn thought they had accomplished their mission. But his co-founders pointed out that the food was going fast, and their job was just getting started. "That's 140,000 pounds," Ahearn said. "Surely we have flooded the market, and we should be proud of ourselves, and that's it. Three days later and there was not a potato or onion here. I realized that we need to do this again, and we got to do this for months." ? @weeklygraphicnews @cnn #illustration #goodnews #positivity #onion #potato #trucks #foodbank #initiative #artwork #editorialart #washingtonstate #farm

9. Extinction des feux

L’Allemagne souhaite diminuer son utilisation de lumière la nuit pour protéger les insectes.

View this post on Instagram

Germany is planning to ban floodlights from dusk for much of the year as part of its bid to fight a dramatic decline in insect populations. ?? The country's environment ministry has drawn up a number of new measures to protect insects, ranging from partially outlawing spotlights to increased protection of natural habitats. ? "Insects play an important role in the ecosystem...but in Germany, their numbers and their diversity has severely declined in recent years," reads the draft law, for which the ministry hopes to get cabinet approval by October. ? The changes put forward in the law include stricter controls on both lighting and the use of insecticides. ? Light traps for insects are to be banned outdoors, while searchlights and sky spotlights would be outlawed from dusk to dawn for ten months of the year. ? The draft also demands that any new streetlights and other outdoor lights be installed in such a way as to minimise the effect on plants, insects and other animals. ? The use of weed-killers and insecticides would also be banned in national parks and within five to ten metres of major bodies of water, while orchards and dry-stone walls are to be protected as natural habitats for insects. ? @phys.org @weeklygraphicnews #illustration #fly #funny #laidback #artwork #editorialart #dimlight #ecology #ecofriendly #insects #sketch #editorialillustration #digitalpainting #deutsch #insectsofinstagram #goodnews #positivity #kunst #uplifting #graphicnews #artist #instagood #digitalart

13. Les enfants sont formidables (mais genre vraiment, pas genre Patrick Sabatier qui parle)

Au Kenya, un enfant de 9 ans a inventé une machine en bois pour se laver les mains et lutter ainsi contre la propagation du Covid.

"I now have two machines and I want to make more." ___ Meet Stephen Wamukota, a nine-year-old boy from Kenya who invented a wooden hand-washing machine that uses foot pedals to avoid touching surfaces and curb the spread of coronavirus. One foot tips a bucket of water, and the other foot tips a liquid soap bottle. ___ Stephen came up with the idea after learning on TV about ways to prevent catching the virus. Not much later, his father found him taking action. ""I had bought some pieces of wood to make a window frame, but I when I came back home after work one day I found that Stephen had made the machine," Mr Wamukota told the BBC. "The concept was his and I helped tighten the machine. I'm very proud," he said. He posted his son's invention on Facebook and was surprised how quickly it was shared, he said. Stephen was among 68 Kenyans given the Presidential Order of Service, Uzalendo (Patriotic) Award on Monday. Stephen said that he wants to be an engineer when he grows up and the county governor has promised to give him a scholarship, Mr Wamukota said. ___ @weeklygraphicnews @bbcnews @bbcafrica #illustration #award #goodnews #invention #kidinventors #artwork #kenya #africa #stephenwamukota #goodnewsfeed #editorial #editorialart #poster #conceptual #editorialillustration #africanpattern #africatoday #washyourhands #kenyanmemes #africainspired #blm #creativityeveryday #illustrationoftheday #illustrationart #wacom #digitalart #digitalpainting
