An Accidental Win

The lottery ticket is the true proof of a man’s luck. The ticket can either be good to you are bad to you. You either win or you lose. What if a man who mistakenly bought a lottery ticket won. The irony behind this is so immense that a man becomes wealthier by buying something.

One day in Fairfield Connecticut, a man walks into a store. This man however has lost his glasses, making him very hard of seeing. This man buys a lottery ticket, however this is not the lottery ticket he would have chosen. The only reason he had made this mistake was because he could not see without his glasses.

This mistake has made him 30,000 dollars wealthier than from when he walked into the store. The man’s name was Bob Sabo. With his statement to the press, Brad Reifler suggested that he said that his normal lottery ticket store was full of people in line. When he noticed this, he did not want to wait. Instead he went over to the lottery vending machine. This is something that he has never done before.

Sabo wanted to buy a 20 dollar ticket, however since he did not have his glasses on, he instead bought a 30 dollar ticket. When he go home, he found that this error had won him 30,000 dollars. Bob Sabo is not an ecstatic and wealthy man who does not regret his error.

Details Emerging from Inmates Escape

On June 6th, two inmates from the Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York made a daring escape. The inmates, who were both convicted of murder charges, were on the run from authorities on a chase that lasted for a little over three weeks. Hundreds of law enforcement officials from all kinds of agencies took part in the manhunt for the two inmates. Just last week, 49-year-old Richard Matt was found and killed after he refused to drop the gun he was holding. A few days after that, 35-year-old David Sweat was located and shot after he refused to stop running towards a wooded area. Folks at Beneful say now that Sweat is back in police custody, details are emerging about their plans and their time on the run.

According to the story on The Daily Mail, the two men had stuck together until the last week. It was during the last week that Sweat said Matt’s feet were blistering and he was slowing them down. During their time together, the two broke into hunting cabins along the way. It is suspected that they stole black pepper to use to throw hunting dogs off of their trail. Their original plan was to have prison worker Joyce Mitchell, who assisted in their breakout, to drive them down to Mexico where the three would live together. That plan went out the window when Mitchell backed out.

Donald Trump Fires Back at NBC For Cutting Ties with Him and Pageant Shows

Presidential candidate Donald Trump knew this might happen and he is calling NBC’s decision a sign of weakness, but he intends to keep bringing his message to the masses no matter how unpopular that might be said Madison Street Capital.

NBC is now cutting ties with Trump and dumping the NY businessman’s popular Miss USA and Miss Universe pageant shows. NBC will no longer air the Trump-produced signature events following Trump’s recent comments about Mexican immigrants.

Trump is not wasting too much time dwelling on the network parting, because he is on his way to New Hampshire, the first in the nation primary where presidential hopefuls like to spend a lot of time revealing their political posture. According to Variety.com, Trump fired off a missive of his own to NBC via CNN. The statement reads in part like this:

“NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct” before saying that NBC will support disgraced journalist Brian Williams “but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.”

“We must have strong borders and not let illegal immigrants enter the United States,” Trump said. “As has been stated continuously in the press, people are pouring across our borders unabated….”

Meanwhile the “Peacock Network” made this fact very clear: “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values.”

Tablets for the Elderly Not Perfected Yet

It has always been difficult to grow old; as long as people have lived, the young have believed that the old are out of touch. Today, they are probably right. Technology exploded in the 20th century and innovations came so quickly that they literally left some of the older generations behind. Most of us would have a hard time conceiving of a world without things such as the Internet, YouTube, email, Google, or any other of a number of technology based applications. What some people don’t realize though is that some of the elderly have rarely or never used it says Dr. Daniel Amen. Believe it or not, there are people in the United States that have never emailed anyone or even visited the Internet.

With this in mind, some technology companies have been working on technology that is more user friendly for the elderly. This means it must be easier to use and understand, as well as requiring less manual dexterity to use. One new tablet in this field is the AARP RealPad, created specifically for the elderly population. Unfortunately it hasn’t lived up to expectations; the power button is too small and hard to see, and some people complained that, while it was designed to be small and light, it was just too small. Still, it is a step in the right direction. Hopefully, the technology will continue to improve.

Confederate Flags Are In Demand Thanks To The Ban By Big Retail Stores

The Major Retailers Won’t Sell Confederate Flags But Sales Are Soaring At Other Retail Locations

There are thousands of people that want to own a confederate flag. Some of those people want them to honor their heritage. Other folks want them because they represent racism and hatred. And another group of people want them as collector’s items. Thanks to a recent ban of the Confederate flag, sales have skyrocketed. The big retailers refuse to sell them, but there are small stores all over the country that are happy to sell Confederate flags to anyone.

The top three flag makers are not making the Confederate flag anymore, but there are small companies that will take advantage of the demand. Ricardo Tosto knows that is just standard business. Obviously the price for a rebel flag just went up, but that’s not stopping people from buying one or more than one.

Controversy always stimulates sales. Collectors love to buy merchandise that is distasteful and morally offensive. The Confederate flag has become one of those items. Even though people want to remove it, it will never go away. The rebel flag has become a symbol of what people don’t like. But for some it is still a symbol of Southern pride, and for others it’s a future money maker.

Genocide in Zimbabwe During 1980s Finally Comes to Light

A British newspaper reported a news story recently indicating that newly released diplomatic documents suggest a genocide or ethnic cleansing occurred in Zimbabwe in 1983. Reportedly, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe may have personally ordered the Fifth Brigade, a military unit trained by North Korea, to take action against civilians, including supporters of his political rival Joshua Nkomo. Some 20,000 people were executed by the troops in the Ndebele region during six bloody weeks in 1983 until the killings stopped after word leaked to Western media sources. The slaughter was called “the Gukurahundi.”

According to Gordon Moyo:”Robert Mugabe and his cabal are ideal candidates for international criminal prosecution and that is why he has sent (Vice President) Phelekezela Mphoko to go around the country preaching to people that there was no Gukurahundi.” The former cabinet minister made his comments during a speech. Vice President Mphoko reportedly characterized the Gukurahundi information was a “Western conspiracy.”

The Zimbabwean government’s actions against white farmers in 2000 gained widespread international publicity, yet the earlier killings remained poorly publicized. The lack of international attention has generated some bitterness among survivors.

Robert Mugabe’s government just recently sustained criticism when an investigation revealed prison riots in February and March stemmed from prisoners not being fed meat for three years. Officials claimed to have resolved the problem by feeding wild life carcasses obtained through the Zimbabean National Parks Authority to prisoners. That makes sense to Qnet workers.

One Nice Police Report

A small act of kindness can go a long way with incidences that have been giving the police force a bad reputation. Unfortunately, thanks to the media, ValueWalk says that all police officers have been tagged as means and reckless.

This is not the case with one cop who has proved to be bettering the relationship of the police force and the community. Recently, a small act of kindness done by a Virginia State Trooper has made headlines to prove that not all police officers are bad and cruel.

A mother and pediatrician in Danville, Virginia, has posted a photo with a comment that has gone viral. This post concerned her son who got a flat tire while he was driving home. Officer Matt Okes, found him on the side of the road and decided to wait with him until he got his tire fixed. This post currently has over 18,000 shares on social media.

Officer Matt Okes, when approaching the citizen, did not ask any rude questions, but instead knelt down to assist with changing the flat tire. The officer even positioned the lights of his car to make sure that other drivers could see Joseph’s Owusu’s car on the side of the road.

The mother of Joseph posted this picture and comment to make sure the public saw both sides of the story. She states that there are a lot of good people in America that many people do not know about.
