Ghanaian Teacher Who Drew MS Word On Chalk Board Gets Computers Donated

Earlier this month, photos of a teacher in Ghana drawing a diagram of Microsoft Word on a chalk board for his students went viral.

Richard Appiah Akoto needed his students to pass a national exam that includes questions on information and communication technology, but the school hasn’t had a computer in 7 years.

After the photos went viral on social media, Microsoft Africa got word of Akoto’s efforts and promised to send him a computer for his classroom.

“Supporting teachers to enable digital transformation in education is at the core of what we do. We will equip Owura Kwadwo with a device from one of our partners,” the tech giant wrote on Twitter.

On March 8, students at Betenase M/A Junior High School received their very first laptop, courtesy of a Saudi benefactor at University of Leeds in the UK.

Cow Escapes Slaughterhouse By Smashing Through A Fence And Swimming To An Island

A local politician in Poland has agreed to let a cow live in peace after she escaped a slaughterhouse and swam to safety.

The cow has been living alone on an island, attacking anyone who comes near, after staging a miraculous escape on her way to a slaughterhouse.

According to the Polish news show Wiadomosci, the cow made its bid for safety last month after she refused to get into a truck that was transporting cows to a slaughterhouse. Instead she smashed through a metal fence, broke the arm of the man trying to catch her, and made a dash for the nearby Lake Nysa.

She then swam to an island in the middle of the lake.

The cow’s owner, Mr. Lukasz, spent a week trying to get her to come back before finally giving up.

Pawel Kukiz, a political leader in the town of Nysa, offered to pay for the “hero cow” to be saved from death.

Couple Who Lost Everything In A Wildfire Wins $1 Million Lottery

A Canadian couple who lost everything in a wildfire can now start rebuilding their lives after they won $1 million in the Atlantic Lottery.

Bill Pendergast, 50, was visiting his ill father in Newfoundland and Labrador earlier this month and stopped in a convenience store to get his dad a soda.

“Dad called and asked me to stop on my way back to the hospital and pick him up a cold 7-Up,” said Pendergast in a statement from the Atlantic Lottery.

On a whim, he purchased a $3 lottery ticket.

The next morning, he found out he was a new millionaire.

The money, the couple said, will be used mostly to help put the pieces back together, including finishing construction on their home, CBC reported.

But Pendergast does want one special gift.

“I have always wanted a Mustang, and I will finally have one, I’m 100% sure of that.”
