FILE - In this May 27, 2012 file photo, a girl looks through a wooden wall of her home in Embera Puru indigenous community on the outskirts of Panama City. A poll released Wednesday of nearly 150,000 people around the world says seven of the world's 10 countries with the most upbeat attitudes are in Latin America. Gallup Inc. asked about 1,000 people in each of 148 countries last year if they were well-rested, had been treated with respect, smiled or laughed a lot, learned or did something interesting and felt feelings of enjoyment. In Panama and Paraguay, 85 percent of those polled said yes to all five, putting those countries at the top of the list. (AP Photo/Arnulfo Franco, File) less
