postheadericon Delivery Driver Wrestles Gun Out Of Robber’s Hands

NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT — A delivery driver making a food delivery at 3 a.m. was surprised to be greeted by a man with a gun. He showed up at the listed address with an order for $ 37 worth of food. Instead of paying for the food, the occupant decided to rob him at gunpoint.

According to NBC Connecticut, the victim was threatened multiple times throughout the robbery that he would be shot and killed by the armed robber. At first, the robber just wanted the food and then some soda from the back of the victim’s car. Then he wanted his cell phone. Then he wanted his wallet…

You see where this is heading?

The armed robber wouldn’t be satisfied with just a glass of milk and a cookie. You give a mouse a cookie, he’s going to want a glass of milk. And eventually, it ends when he takes your car, your home, and if he’s feeling angry that day — your life. That’s where the robber was headed and the delivery driver knew it.

At some point in the encounter, the delivery driver realized it wasn’t going to get any easier than it already was. A gun pointed at him by an unstable, idiotic youth that doesn’t know any better — take your chances with no gun. He allegedly overpowered the youth, took his gun, and opened fire on him with it.

The robber fled into the night. Police showed up and took the handgun and filed their reports. Surprise, surprise, Shawn Pauls, 23, shows up in the hospital the next morning after someone dropped him off. He has a single non-life-threatening gunshot wound and somehow knows nothing about all the events from last night.

Pauls is a felon with a prior record that indicates if anyone was dumb enough to push his luck with a delivery driver, he surely would be dumb enough for that. And it turns out the New Haven police think the same. They’ve since charged him with criminal possession of a firearm, first-degree robbery, second-degree larceny and first-degree threatening in connection with the incident.

Paul’s gun obviously wasn’t bought at the local gun shop. This should help inform anyone curious that there isn’t an armed criminal out there who will hesitate to get his hands on a stolen or illegal gun and use it. Thus, any law-abiding person wandering about may as well strongly consider the same.

That delivery driver was tough as nails. That’s not a safe bet for the average person. It’s better to be prepared than rely on a lucky break in a bad situation. Carry everyday — especially in Connecticut.

postheadericon Microsoft provides grants to accelerate the delivery of affordable Internet access

REDMOND, Wash. — May 23, 2016 — Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday announced it has awarded Affordable Access Initiative grants to 12 entrepreneurial businesses to help scale their solutions and business models to increase affordable Internet access in communities around the world. Each company will receive seed grants and resources including BizSpark tools such as free software, services and technology support to help extend the reach of their hardware, applications, connectivity and power solutions. Today’s news marks progress on the commitments Microsoft made earlier this year to invest $ 1 billion to bring the power of cloud technology to serve the public good, including through expanding the availability of affordable broadband services, new commercial partnerships and expanded philanthropic programs.

“With more than half of the world’s population lacking access to the Internet, connectivity is a global challenge that demands creative problem solving,” said Peggy Johnson, executive vice president of business development at Microsoft. “By using technology that’s available now and partnering with local entrepreneurs who understand the needs of their communities, our hope is to create sustainable solutions that will not only have impact today but also in the years to come.”

Microsoft’s Affordable Access Initiative aims to democratize access to the Internet through grants, commercial partnerships, connecting new leaders and community engagement. Grant recipients are already addressing a range of challenges that take advantage of last-mile access technologies such as TV white spaces, and their business models also demonstrate the ability to scale up and be market-sustained. Grant recipients are based across five continents in 11 countries: Argentina, Botswana, India, Indonesia, Malawi, Nigeria, Philippines, Rwanda, Uganda, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition to financial support, grant recipients will have access to the following:

  • A global network connecting social enterprises with peers and mentors to develop and share best practices
  • Participation in annual immersive summits and monthly virtual touchpoints, alongside ongoing support from Microsoft’s Research and Development team.

And, to further empower people and organization in communities benefitting from the Affordable Access Initiative, Microsoft Philanthropies will make digital literacy, online safety and computer science education programs available through its global YouthSpark initiative, as well as cloud product donations and training for nonprofits.

Below is a complete list of the Affordable Access Initiative grant recipients. You can learn more about their solutions and Microsoft’s commitment to affordable access at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/affordable-access-initiative/home.
