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

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

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

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

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 …

Arnold Schwarzenegger Goes For A Bike Ride With ‘New Mate’ Greta Thunberg

Arnold Schwarzenegger shared photos of his bike ride with environmental activist Greta Thunberg, labelling her a ‘hero’.

The Terminator star, 72, had introduced Greta, 16, to his daughter before they pedalled around Santa Monica this week.

He told his followers: ‘It was fantastic to see my friend and one of my heroes @gretathunberg last week and go on a bike ride around Santa Monica together and I was so pumped to introduce her to my daughter Christina. Keep inspiring, Greta!’ Greta, who had travelled to Los Angeles for the Youth Climate Strike on 1 November, also took the time to hang out with Leonardo DiCaprio during her trip.

Leo was just as impressed with the young activist as Arnie was, telling his fans: ‘There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but @GretaThunberg has become a leader of our time.

‘History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the sa…

Transgender Boy Wins Girls’ State Wrestling Title For Second Time

CYPRESS, Texas — For the second year in a row, a transgender wrestler has won the Texas girls’ Class 6A 110-pound division.

Mack Beggs, an 18-year-old senior from Euless Trinity High School near Dallas, entered the tournament in Cypress outside Houston with an undefeated record. He beat Chelsea Sanchez — whom he beat for the title in 2017 — in the final match Saturday.

Video posted online showed a mix of cheers and boos from the crowd following Beggs’ win.

Beggs is in the process of transitioning from female to male and taking a low dose of testosterone.

It was his steroid therapy treatments while wrestling girls that stirred a fierce debate about competitive fairness and transgender rights last season. It’s been a lot quieter since last year, when his march to a state championship was dogged by a last-minute lawsuit that tried to stop him.

Beggs had asked to wrestle in the boys’ division, but the rules for Texas public high schools require athletes to compete under the gender on the…

Quote Of The Week: Greta Thunberg Claims To Be Able To “see” Carbon Dioxide In The Air

At first, I thought this had to be a joke. Then I thought it must be some sort of misinterpretation. Sadly, no.

From the website Afrinik, quoting the book –Scener ur hjärtat by Malena Ernman, Svante Thunberg

According to her mother Malena Ernman (48), 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg can see CO2 with the naked eye. She writes that in the book ‘Scenes from the heart. Our life for the climate’, which she wrote with her family.

Greta was diagnosed as a child with obsessive-compulsive disorder and Asperger’s syndrome, just like her younger sister Beata. The activist also has a photographic memory. She knows all the capitals by heart and can list all the chemical elements of the periodic table within one minute. In addition, she has another gift according to her mother.

“Greta is able to see what other people cannot see,” writes Malena Ernman in the book.

“She can see carbon dioxide with the naked eye. She sees how it flows out of chimneys and changes the atmosphere in …

White Robber Nabbed Wearing African-american 'hollywood' Mask, What Are The Racial Effects?

When Ohio police put out an A.P.B. for a black male who had robbed five banks, they were puzzled as to why they could never catch the guy.

He always seemed to slip away, despite cops locking down the area around the target banks.

That's probably because the real suspect was a white guy from Florida disguised as an African-American. Blame this one on the magic of Hollywood.

Conrad Zdzierak, a former Seminole resident, was arrested earlier this month accused of robbing four banks and a CVS pharmacy in a three hour span, reported ABC Action News.

Between robberies, Zdzierak would take off the mask and drive by police as they searched for the black suspect.

So what uncovered this made by Hollywood mystery? A dye pack from one of the bank robberies exploded in the suspect's getaway car, which cops found parked outside a hotel.

A search of Zdzierak's room turned up the black face investigators were looking for. Zdzierak now faces aggravated robbery charges and is being held on …

Kevin Hart and Others Suffers Major Injuries in Car Accident, With Back Injury...

One of Kevin Hart's classic cars ended up in a ditch in the Malibu Hills after veering off the road ... DeTech has learned, and looking at the damage ... it's a miracle he and 2 other people in the vehicle survived.

The accident happened just before 1 AM Sunday on the winding and treacherous Mulholland Highway. Crash scene video, obtained by DeTech, shows Kevin's Plymouth Barracuda deep in a gully about 10 feet off the road.

The car smashed through wooden fencing along the roadside, and you can see the roof was completely crushed by the impact.

The third person is a woman who did not require hospital treatment. Police say the driver had not been drinking.

Kevin was first out of the vehicle and according to a witne…

UAE Woman Files For Divorce From Her Husband Because He Has Showed Her ‘Extreme Love’

A woman in the United Arab Emirates is seeking to divorce her husband because he has choked her with extreme love by helping her with housework and showering her with gifts.

She filed for divorce at the Shariah court in Fujairah, the UAE, complaining she was ‘chocked’ by his ‘extreme love and affection’. The husband was so kind he even went on a strict diet and exercise regime that left him with a broken leg when she told him off for gaining weight.

The woman told the court:

“I am choked by his extreme love and affection. He even assisted me in cleaning the house without my asking him. I am eagerly longing for a single day of dispute, but this seems impossible with my romantic husband who always forgave me and showered me with daily gifts. I need a real discussion, even an argument, not this hassle-free life full of obedience.” Khaleej Times reported that the husband begged the court to deny the divorce request. He was surprised his wife is trying to divorce him. It’s not fair to jud…

Shell Workers Had To Attend Trump Speech To Be Paid, Were Ordered Not To Protest

Workers at a massive new Shell plant in Pennsylvania had to attend a speech by President Donald Trump there earlier this week to be paid — and were ordered not to protest, reported the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Attendance was not mandatory for thousands of union workers at Royal Dutch Shell’s petrochemical plant north of Pittsburgh, but they had to forfeit pay for the day if they skipped, according to attendance and comportment information obtained by the newspaper.

“Your attendance is not mandatory,” one manager told workers, summarizing a memo that Shell sent to union leaders, the Post-Gazette reported, but only those who showed up at 7 a.m., scanned their ID cards and prepared to stand for hours through lunch would be paid.

“No scan, no pay,” workers were warned.

In the below video they were also told: “No yelling, shouting, protesting or anything viewed as resistance will be tolerated at the event. An underlying theme of the event is to promote good will from the unions. Your buil…

Disney Facing Backlash For Producing Pixar Movie About President Trump And Normalizing His Bigotry

Disney came under fire over the weekend after leaks of the new Pixar feature film starring President Trump. In case it hasn’t been made clear from us, BuzzFeed, CNN or MSNBC, Trump is a terrible, awful, no-good, very bad person who hates Mexicans and women. The fact that Disney wants to glorify Trump’s bigotry with a Pixar film is reprehensible.

This isn’t the first time that Disney turned a blind eye to bigotry and hatred. Disney has openly showed support for the Hong Kong protesters who proudly wave the very flag Colin Kaepernick chooses to disrespect. If Colin Kaepernick has an opinion, we follow – no questions asked.

That’s why the hashtag #BoycottMulan was trending. If Disney supports those who wave the American flag, Disney is not to be taken seriously as a woke company.

The movie is set to release May of 2020 only a few months before the 2020 elections. Marvel movies and other Disney movies have a tendency to rock box office records with millions of viewers – which means treme…

You Can Now Volunteer To Serve Prison Time In Place Of A Person Of Color

After years of writing in and petitioning, a group in Atlanta, Georgia, has finally made some progress toward their goal: to replace all people of color in prisons with white people. It hasn’t been an easy road, and many times, the group known as End Black Imprisonment (EBI) has been arrested themselves for their acts of defiance. However, it was during that time that they realized a compromise could be made.

It was getting arrested that gave us an epiphany. What if, instead of going into the system involuntarily, we could sub in for a POC instead? They could go out, maybe work at our jobs and live in our houses, if they need a place to stay, and show that they are upstanding citizens?

This no-longer radical idea was presented to the courts by the group’s lawyer, and after several days of deliberation, the judge agreed that it would be doable. It would be a work-release program, except that the prison wouldn’t be losing an individual fit to continue that prisoner’s labor. The group b…
