Here’s what to know for Wednesday:

  • Ocean’s temperature check leads to emotional discovery

  • The 15-year-old who made history in blind hockey

  • Phoenix passes ordinance to protect outdoor workers


Every morning, while most of us are still dreaming about breakfast, Guy Dunstan, also known as 'The Temperature Guy,' is at Manly Beach, measuring the ocean's temperature.

Yep, you read that right. At 4 am.

One morning, during his routine check, Guy stumbled upon a message in a bottle.

It was a touching message from two sons, Kevin and Nigel Graham. They fulfilled their parents' final wish by mixing their ashes and sending them on a journey together.

It's no surprise Guy found the bottle. He's practically a superhero at the beach, armed with a meat thermometer and creating cool murals on a concrete pillar.

Instead of just tossing the bottle back into the ocean, Guy made sure it continued its journey, just as the message asked.

With some expert advice and a friend's help, he set the bottle off into the big blue, documenting its voyage on Instagram.

The Graham family was beyond grateful.

Seeing their parents' names typed out by strangers on the other side of the globe was like a warm hug from across the ocean.

Despite the early mornings and chilly weather, Guy's dedication never wavers.

He knows the value of community and the impact of a simple gesture.

As Guy approaches his 1000th-morning ritual, he's already planning something special.

Because to him, it's not just about numbers or art; it's about the people.

And as long as there's someone out there who needs a warm hug, Guy will be there, bright and early, doing his thing.

Grab your shades because Phoenix, Arizona, just made a cool move to protect its outdoor workers from getting toasted!

In a quick and historic decision, the Phoenix City Council passed an ordinance ensuring that outdoor workers have some shade, water, and rest breaks to beat the heat.

Last year, Phoenix hit record highs, and unfortunately, not everyone made it through unscathed.

Things are looking up for those who work under the sun.

Take Filiberto Lares, for example.

He's been serving up food to airplanes at Sky Harbor Airport for over a decade. It's like a breath of fresh air for him—literally.

And Cecilia Ortiz, who's been sweating it out in the jet bridges?

She's ready to take on the heat, armed with shade and hydration.

But it's not just about feeling the burn outdoors. Even folks working in vehicles are feeling the heat.

With air conditioning now a must-have in work trucks and delivery vans, it's like a cool breeze blowing through the desert.

So, here's to Phoenix, leading the charge in keeping workers safe from the scorching sun.

When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.

Paulo Coelho

When we love, we're pushing ourselves to be the best darn versions of ourselves.

And guess what?

When we level up, the whole world around us gets a glow-up too!

It’s a catalyst for making everything around us shine.
