Free2Learn "Back To School Campaign" Project

Free2Learn Project seeks to help children in schools most especially in deprived communities. We believe children must have a free mind to enable them go to school and learn. When schools reopen, most parents go through a lot of financial difficulties to be able to provide basic items such as exercise books, pens, pencils, erasers and rulers for their wards. 
This sometimes makes it difficult  for them to go to school. It may also prevent the children from obtaining education.

Our Mission is "To motivate and inspire  every schoolchild in Ghana. To have a sense of understanding and compassion for children".
Free2Learn would like to lessen the burden of parents by providing some these basic items and also put a smile on the children's face.
As we embark on our first project, we have identified Vitting Ansuariya Islamic JHS in Tamale as a school with needs we would like to address

Arsenal Win Late At Burnley

Laurent Koscielny scored a stoppage-time winner after Burnley had appeared set to share the spoils at Turf Moor on Sunday.
With seconds of the game remaining, a corner bounced off defender Laurent Koscielny — with Burnley appealing that the ball had hit his arm — and went in at the far post after Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had got touches.
Both sides had come close in the final quarter of an hour, with the Gunners’ Alexis Sanchez striking the outside of a post and Michael Keane smacking a header off the Arsenal bar.

Arsenal had the first chance to break through in what turned out to be a low-key first half, with an angled low shot from Sanchez taking a touch off teammate Walcott and rolling wide of the far post in the fourth minute.
Mesut Ozil then scuffed an effort harmlessly, but Burnley were growing into the game and had a chance of their own after 16 minutes when Jeff Hendrick found George Boyd on the left but, with players in support, Boyd elected to shoot an…

BNI Officials Pampered Me To Eat – Fadi

A New Patriotic Party sympathizer who was picked up by the BNI over his critical writings against president John Mahama has said he was detained for 65 odd hours but was treated well nonetheless.
Far from being beaten, tortured or molested, Fadi Samih Daboussi said he was detained with a human face and that even when he went on hunger strike, the seemingly worried BNI officials pampered him in an effort to get him to eat.
He made the comment on Joy News analysis program Newsfile, Saturday.

Fadi, a fierce Mahama critic, was picked up on Friday at the Kotoka International Airport over some of his critical write ups.
He is believed to have written many critical stories one of which accused the president of fathering a baby with the daughter of the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, a story Kweku Baako Jnr insists is untrue and offensive.
He is also reported to have insinuated that president Mahama had a role to play in the death of the late president John Mills.
He has also authored a bo…

"I mean, we're busy people and we’re enjoying the four kids that we've got already and we're lucky, we're lucky to have four healthy children."


 But former Spice Girls member, Victoria Beckham has now addressed the rumours saying she doesn't want anymore children.

Pakistan threatens to destroy India in terrifying war of words: "We have not made atomic device to display in a showcase

Arch enemies - Pakistan and India who both possess a formidable nuclear arsenal - threaten the safety of the world as the former ramped up the threats against its neighbour.

Oldest living gorilla has a new great-grandbaby, JJ

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The longest-living gorilla on record has another great-grandbaby.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium says a baby western lowland gorilla named JJ was born there Wednesday. The newborn's gender has not yet been determined as it bonds with its mother, Tabibu (tah-BEE'-boo). Both are expected to remain behind the scenes for several months.

The baby gorilla is descended from the zoo's well-known gorilla family.

Fifty-nine-year-old Colo is considered the oldest gorilla on record. She still lives at the Columbus zoo, where she was born. JJ's father, Macombo II, is Colo's grandson. He and his brother, Mosuba, were the first gorilla twins born in the western hemisphere.

The naming of the newborn was auctioned off as a zoo fundraiser.

Katherine Schwarzenegger Says Despite Parents' Split: 'We Do Everything Together as a Family'

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's split has not stopped their family from sticking together.
The couple's daughter Katherine, 26, recently sat down with PEOPLE and opened up about how the family has gotten along since her parents' 2011 separation.

"We do everything together as a family," Katherine said. "We've maintained very, very close relationships with every member of my entire family and my family has done a great job at keeping us all together, showing up for one another."

Schwarzenegger and Shriver separated in 2011 after the former governor of California admitted to fathering a child with the family housekeeper 14 years earlier.

Yet Katherine, who has spoken before about her family's tight relationship, said the breakup has had little effect on the family dynamic. "We are very, very close and love one another – and just because my parents aren’t necessarily together, doesn’t mean anything or affect our family in any o…

She has ahead of her departure asked her friends, colleagues and the entire country to pray for her indicating that “although it’s not ended, this is rather when I need His (God) grace and support more.”

Samuel Eto'o recalled by Antalyaspor after racism comments

Turkish club Antalyaspor lifted Samuel Eto'o's suspension and included him in the squad to face Galatasaray on Sunday, after warning him over his future conduct.
Former Cameroon captain Eto'o was suspended by the club until further notice last month after allegedly accusing the club leadership of racism on social media. 

Antalyaspor chairman Ali Safak Ozturk said Eto'o had expressed regret over the posting and had insisted it was not aimed at the club leadership. 
"We hope he will behave more carefully in the future and make a positive contribution to the team." Ozturk announced during a meeting with the squad.
35-year-old Eto'o had written the controversial post on his Instagram account last month in reference to a public criticism, saying:
"Perhaps some people do not feel respect for me because I am black."
Eto'o later made a second post denying the criticism was aimed at Antalyaspor chairman Ali Safak Ozturk, who had criticised Eto'…

Police stop mum from jumping in front of train with her 9 year old daughter

A suicidal mom, 43 year old Gabriella Georgescu, holding her 9-year-old daughter threatened to jump in front of an oncoming subway train in Midtown, New York on Friday. 
According to the Police, Georgesc was raving and ranting about killing herself and her child as she stood close to the edge of the platform at 59th St. and Lexington Ave. just before 5 p.m.
Alarmed passengers and an MTA worker who heard her threats alerted the police. A plainclothes police officer arrived to find Georgescu leaning near the gap as a northbound 6 train rolled into the station, according to cops.

The officer quickly slapped cuffs on her before she could jump, an NYPD spokesman said.
Another officer grabbed the little girl, who had bruises on her back was later taken into the custody of the city Administration for Child’s Services. The bruises on the little girl's back, led cops to suspect that she had been abused.

Georgescu, who is believed to have been visiting a relative in the city at the t…

Trump Tax Records Obtained by The Times Reveal He Could Have Avoided Paying Taxes for Nearly Two Decades

Donald Trump's business losses in 1995 were so large that they could have allowed him to legally avoid paying federal income tax for up to 18 years, The New York Times reports.
In a story published early on Sunday, the Times said it anonymously received the first pages of Trump's 1995 state income tax filings in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut - showing a net loss of $915,729,293 in federal taxable income for that year.
According to tax experts hired by the newspaper, provisions in the tax code would have allowed Trump to use his near $916m loss to cancel out an equivalent amount of taxable income over an 18-year period.

The Times said that although Trump's taxable income in subsequent years is unknown, a $916m loss in 1995 would have been large enough to wipe out more than $50m a year in taxable income over 18 years.
Trump's former accountant Jack Mitnick, whose name appears as Trump's tax preparer of the filings, said the documents appeared to be au…

Orthodox Church snubs Pope Francis in Georgia

Pope Francis has wrapped up a visit to Georgia with fresh gestures of friendship towards the Orthodox Church despite being snubbed by the local patriarchate.
Francis celebrated Mass on Saturday in Tbilisi's Mikheil Meskhi Stadium, where less than 3,000 of the facility's 27,000 seats were filled.
"A Mass by Pope Francis to a half-empty stadium shows just how much of a minority Catholics are in Georgia," said Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker, reporting from Tbilisi.

"More than 80 percent of the population is Georgian Orthodox Christian."
The Vatican had expected the Georgian Orthodox Church to send a delegation to the Mass in Tbilisi, even though the patriarchate announced earlier this week that its clergy could not take part "due to dogmatic differences" dating back to the Middle Ages.
In the end, Greg Burke, Vatican spokesperson, confirmed that no Orthodox bishops showed up.
Closing Mass, Francis strayed from a scripted speech, thanking…
