These Baltimore Teenagers Went From Cleaning Windshields To Forming Their Own Bottled Water Company

Image
These boys are living proof that you can do anything you put your mind to!

A group of teenage boys have expanded their squeegee business to now include a bottled water company, reports The Baltimore Sun.

Korner Boyz Enterprises is a business created by a group of Baltimore squeegee kids. The boys started out standing on corners cleaning windshields. They would flag down motorists at the corner of Mount Royal and North Avenues in Baltimore and invite them to a clean front windshield in exchange for a few bucks to help them buy food and pay their cell phone bill.


Last winter, Kai Crosby-Singleton, a community liaison for the Maryland Institute College of Art’s (MICA) Office of Strategic Initiatives ran across the group of boys. The teenagers were being hurled with insults and racial epithets as they tried to make a few dollars. That’s when Crosby-Singleton stepped in, getting to know the young men. The relationship he built with the boys, Taetae, Leroy, Khalil, Keyon and Deauntae would…

This 10-Year-Old Boy Invents A Genius Device To Help Children Dying In Hot Cars After His Neighbor’s Death

Image
According to statistics, since 1998 around 712 children are thought to have died from heatstroke in the US alone after being left in hot vehicles. But thanks to one bright 10-year-old boy called Bishop Curry from McKinney, Texas, tragic and preventable deaths like these could soon be a thing of the past.


The fifth grader has invented something called the Oasis, a clever little gadget that monitors the temperature inside the car. Once it gets to a certain level, the device emits cool air while simultaneously alerting parents and authorities via an antenna.

The idea for the Oasis came to Bishop after he learned that his neighbour’s 6-month-old infant had died from being in an overheated car, and although he only has a 3-D clay model of the device at the moment, he and his father have so far managed to raise over $24,000 for their invention on GoFundMe. 
The money will go towards manufacturing the device as well as securing the patent for it, so if you haven’t already, head on over to t…

Prisoner Who Died And Was Brought Back Claims His Life Sentence Has Technically Ended When He Died Momentarily And Was Revived

Image
Benjamin Schreiber is very much alive. But that hasn't stopped him from arguing that he died four years ago.

After the convicted murderer collapsed in his prison cell in 2015, doctors restarted his heart five times. Recovering back at the Iowa State Penitentiary, Schreiber filed a novel legal appeal. Because he died before he was resuscitated, he had technically fulfilled his life sentence, he claimed.


Judges, however, aren't buying it. Dying for a brief amount of time doesn't amount to a get-out-of-jail-free card, the Iowa Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday, saying that the 66-year-old will remain in prison until a medical examiner determines that he is dead for good.

"Schreiber is either alive, in which case he must remain in prison, or he is dead, in which case this appeal is moot," Judge Amanda Potterfield wrote.

Schreiber has been behind bars since 1996, when he was charged in the death of John Dale Terry, 39, whose bludgeoned body was found near an abando…

6ix9ine Will Hire Floyd Mayweather Jr’s The Great Wall Security Team For 24 Hours A Day And Pay Them $1.5 Million Dollars A Year

Image
Tekashi 69 is supposedly coming out of prison soon and it appears that snitching has made him a laughing stock of hip-hop, but you know the old Hollywood saying: "Any publicity is good publicity."

Tekashi is about to live that to the fullest and try to prove that it's not hard out here for a snitch. 


Being locked up and becoming a Federal snitch to bring down the Nine Trey Blood gang and its hierarchy hasn't hurt Tekashi's marketability one bit. And if you think, niggas ain't fuckin with him when he comes home, you're wrong.

Sad, but true.

Tekashi has already linked a $10 million deal with his old label. There are rumors that P. Diddy will manage him. The latest hint that Tekashi is coming home to a similar type of fame and hate that he had before he left, are reports that he's hired Floyd Mayweather Jr's "The Great Wall" security team  for 24 hours a day and will pay them $1.5 million a year.


Looks like Tekashi is getting ready for an …
