Ghana Has Bright Future In Tech - Isaac Quarcoo

An expert in Information Technology, Isaac Quarcoo has said that despite huge loopholes in Ghana’s tech industry currently, there is still bright prospects for the youths of the country to impact Africa and the rest of the world through tech.

According to the ‘techpreneur’ known popularly as ‘Travelz Reveals’, Ghana, on so many occasions in times past had produced students who had gone on to win major tournaments and trophies in robotics and tech worldwide despite being a country that provides less or no form of thorough practical tech education or environment for students to explore.

“However, Ghanaian youth have over the years proved their capabilities in various aspects of entrepreneurship and tech making them one of the most hardworking group of young adults in the whole of Africa”, he shared.

Speaking in an interview, Mr. Isaac Quarcoo remarked that: “Ghana, amongst many other countries in Africa is likened to a tiny muscle of strength in a failing heart; a life saver whose youth are passionate, tech driven and innovative.

“The kind of atmosphere Africa provides for these innovative youth is a force to reckon with.

“The big question therefore is that, if the tiny muscle of hope in a failing heart is going through these, what’s the fate of the other parts?”, he quizzed.

Mr. Isaac Quarcoo, who shared insights in Ghana’s tech industry, is an experienced tech expert who has seen it all in the struggles to the top especially in our part of the world.

He bemoaned the neglect on the part government and other relevant agencies for the country’s tech industry which he described as “an essential area needed for the growth of every country.”

He expressed readiness to provide any form of support to any individual or group; or any project with a passion for technology and an hunger to impact lives in and outside the country through technology.

“I will root for any tech themed venture in Ghana because that’s the future. Our youth these days spend more time using tech than creating them because there is no encouraging environment to thrive with new innovations and ideas.

“Most of the great things we see Ghanaians do are all done outside our borders and it is always as a result of the kind of reception the Americans, Asians and the Europeans have created for that space”; he said.

Mr. Isaac Quarcoo further called on other players in the tech industry, as well as established entrepreneurs to rise to the occasion in helping improve the country’s fortunes in the technology.

“Can we have a mobile giant like Apple, Samsung, or Huawei in Ghana? The likes of Apostle Kwadwo Sarfo Kantanka have not been well encouraged to push their innovations through to make Ghana that beam of hope for the African continent.

Speaking on his contributions to the industry, Mr. Isaac Quarcoo said: “As a contribution on my part, I have placed able and talented young people together to create platforms that will support society like the dadadeal.com, an e-commerce platform.

“We are also creating an app for this project which will be unveiled soon.”

“We will not end there. We want to also support a group of young people we have already selected to further study and do even better things for Ghana.

“There is a future for Ghanaian youth, and it’s time we all rise to the occasion”, he added.

Donald Trump Says That Despite Elon Musk Buying Twitter He Has No Plans To Return & Will Continue With His Own Truth Social Platform

Donald Trump

@HuffPost reports, during an interview with FOX News following the confirmation that Elon Musk was officially the new owner of Twitter, Donald Trump assured his fanbase that despite the new ownership he will not be returning—choosing instead to use his own Truth Social platform that was launched back in February. “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth,” he said, before adding that he thinks that Elon Musk will likely “make improvements” to Twitter and stated that [Musk is] a “good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”

Trump wasn’t done with his comments and also took the time to claim that his platform is doing better than Twitter:

“We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on Truth is much better than being on Twitter. Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can. The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter. We want liberty and justice and fairness in our country, and the more we can have open, the better. I don’t view that [Musk’s Twitter] as a competition for what I am doing.”

 As we previously reported earlier today, after weeks of intense speculation, it was finally made official that Elon Musk would be the new owner of the company after purchasing it for $44 billion.

TikTok & Netflix Suspends Services In Russia Amid The Ongoing Invasion Of Ukraine–TikTok Suspends New Content & Live Streaming Due To New ‘Fake News’ Law 

The list of companies that have suspended their services in Russia continues to grow. On Sunday, TikTok and Netflix joined the list. TikTok has not completely suspended the use of their app, but only certain features. While a rep for Netflix has confirmed that the streaming service has been suspended in Russia.

According to NBC News, on Sunday, TikTok announced, that they have suspended new content and live streaming abilities on their platform in Russia. The suspension is due to Russia’s new “fake news” law, which has now made it an offense to “disseminate what it described as ‘fake’ information about the country’s armed forces.” TikTok said in a statement, “In light of Russia’s new ‘fake news’ law, we have no choice but to suspend live streaming and new content to our video service in Russia while we review the safety implications of this law.”

They continued to say, “Our in-app messaging service will not be affected. We will continue to evaluate the evolving circumstances in Russia to determine when we might fully resume our services with safety as our top priority.”

Many major companies such as Disney and Warner Bros. have announced that they were pulling their films from the country due to the invasion.

As previously reported, earlier this week, Apple announced that it would suspend product sales in Russia, and limit the access to some of their digital services.
