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 …

Transgender Boy Wins Girls’ State Wrestling Title For Second Time

Image
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…

Image
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 …
