A 58–year–old grandmother in Massachusetts won one of the biggest prizes in U.S. history—$294 million. If she had taken the 26–year payout, Doris Stevens would have received $11 million a year for 26 years, before taxes. Mrs. Stevens decided to take the lump sum payment. People who take the lump sum get paid within 60 days, but their total payment is reduced by almost 40 percent.Mrs. Stevens’ lump sum was $168 million, but luckily, she didn’t have to pay federal tax on her winnings.
What is Mrs. Stevens going to do with her windfall? “Well, the first thing I’m going to do is to help out my children and grandchildren, of course. Second, I hope to revolutionise the housecleaning industry.” A housecleaner for her entire life,Mrs. Stevens says she’s going to establish a National Housecleaner Helper Corporation to help other cleaners open their own companies. Her corporation would focus on giving money to various people and research firms to develop more efficient and more powerful housecleaning solvents and tools.
“When was the last time you saw something new in housecleaning?” Mrs. Stevens asked. “They keep claiming they’ve invented new cleaning products that remove any and all blemishes, but they still haven’t invented a product that removes an ordinary ballpoint ink stain from your ordinary white shirt. This industry needs some new products. I hope to revolutionise the cleaning world, so that my ‘sisters’ will have an easier time of it in the future. We’ve all spent too much time on our hands and knees. If men had to do housecleaning, you know that they’d be inventing more powerful products every week.”

Read the Below Passage:

Will was fed up. All he wanted was, to do things his way. Why did all the wolves have to do everything together anyway? They ate together, played together, slept together and stayed together. Everywhere. Every day. It was suffocating.
Will was growing up. He could do things himself now, and he had some pretty good ideas, too! But his mom wouldn't let him try his ideas by himself. Will didn't get it.One day, the pack was walking through the woods. Will had an idea that there was food down a path, but the pack didn't want to go that way.Finally, Will said, "Why do we need a pack anyway? I'm going to go down that path and I'll have plenty to eat! I don't need any of you."

The pack did not approve. They said, "Will, you can try going off on your own, but we need to work together in our pack. Packs help us survive."

Will didn't believe them. He ran off on his own. He ran for miles. He started to get tired, and it was getting dark. Usually, the pack would all find a spot together to sleep, but Will had no pack now. He decided to find a cave. When he settled down to sleep, Will thought,"Sleeping would be much easier with my pack all around me. If someone attacks, I'd have them to protect me."

He barely slept that night. In the morning, he decided to go back. Will hoped he could find his pack again. He ran back to where they'd last been together. As he was running, he smelled a deer. "Hmmmm..." Will's stomach was growling with hunger. "The pack would be impressed with me if I brought a deer for us all," he thought. So, he decided to hunt on his own.
Quietly, he crept through the woods and tracked the deer into a clearing. Will looked around.Where was the deer? Suddenly, something charged out of the trees at him! It was the deer, its antlers were sharp. If his pack were here, they would help him, but Will was alone. He ran from the deer as fast as he could. After a while, the deer stopped chasing him.As Will stopped to take breath of relief he started thinking how much easier this trip would have been with his pack by his side. He would have been able to sleep soundly. He would have been safer with them all around him. He would have been able to take down the deer with his pack by his side. Now, Will was just hungry and lonely. He realised his pack had been right, each member of the pack does help other members survive.

There were once six blind men who stood by the roadside every day and begged from the people who passed. They had often heard of elephants, but they had never seen one. How could they; they were blind?
It so happened one morning that an elephant was driven down the road where they stood.When they were told that the great beast was before them, they asked the Mahout to let it stop so that they might see it.
Of course they could not see the elephant with their eyes, but they thought that by touching it they could learn just what kind of animal it was.The first one happened to put his hand on the elephant's side. "Well, well!" he said, "now I know all about this beast. It is exactly like a wall."
The second felt only the elephant's tusk. "My brother," he said, "You are mistaken. It is not at all like a wall. It is round and smooth and sharp. It is more like a spear than anything else."
The third happened to take hold of the elephant's trunk. "Both of you are wrong," he said."Anybody who knows anything can see that this elephant is like a snake."
The fourth reached out his arms and grasped one of the elephant's legs. "Oh, how blind you are," he said. "It is very plain to me that it is round and tall like a tree."
The fifth was a very tall man, and he chanced to take hold of the elephant's ear. "The blindest man ought to know that this beast is not like any of the things that you name," he said. "It is exactly like a huge fan."
The sixth was very blind indeed, and it was some time before he could find the elephant at all. At last he seized the animal's tail. "Oh foolish fellows," he cried, "you surely have lost your sense. This elephant is not like a wall or a spear or a snake or a tree, nor is like a fan.But any man with a particle of sense can see that it is exactly like a rope.
