THE INDONESIAN ISLAND OF BALI is rich in natural beauty, full of dense vegetation and lush landscapes. Our Bonus Read, ‘The Global Network’ (page 116), portrays in dramatic detail the sequence of events that unfolded in August last year when the scooter ridden by two young travellers skidded off the side of a mountain in the early hours of the morning. Severely injured, their only option was to send out an SOS message on Facebook. The power of social media and human kindness travelled across continents in this amazing true rescue story. Their rescue was assisted and witnessed by 516 Facebook followers, and is one of the most impressive and seemingly impossible stories I’ve read in a while. We’re also delighted to unveil a new regular food section, which some of…

The Upsides of Worrying Thank you, Reader’s Digest, for helping me see worry and stress in a different light (‘Taming the “What Ifs”’, June). It is reassuring that worry has the benefits mentioned in the article and that utilising this negative energy in a positive way can motivate us all to focus our brain energy in a better direction. T. AAMIR A Doll for Everyone I’m so grateful to Amy Jandrisevits for creating unique dolls for unique children (‘Dolls Represent Kids With Disabilities’, News Worth Sharing, June). I imagine that when the children see themselves reflected in these beautiful dolls they feel as though they belong and with this must come a belief in themselves. RACHAEL KATE D’SOUZA Clever Captioning As a regular reader, I must admit that the captions provided by your readers in…

There is good news for giant panda lovers with the Chinese government planning to create a huge national reserve spanning 27,133 square kilometres by 2023. It’s hoped that the new reserve will make mating easier for these animals and boost their gene pool. As climate change is also altering where bamboo grows, extending the habitat for pandas may also give them better access to their main food source. As well as creating a safe haven for giant pandas, red pandas and other endangered animal and plant species, the reserve will also boost the local economy. It will connect 67 different nature reserves and protected areas, mostly in the Sichuan Province. The area is already home to 80 per cent of wild pandas. Thankfully, the giant panda species was reclassified from ‘endangered’ to…
