Detroit’s Youngest En­tre­pre­neur Austin-based fash­ion de­signer Is­abella Rose Tay­lor be­gan writ­ing and paint­ing at the ten­der age of 4. She at­tended a sewing camp. Soon af­ter, she started mak­ing her own clothes. Sources re­port she launched her own epony­mous cloth­ing line at age 10, and then grad­u­ated high school just a year later. And at age 13, the young prodigy hosted a show at New York Fash­ion Week, land­ing her de­signs in Nord­strom. Asia Newson is 11 years old and has gained na­tional recog­ni­tion. She owns her own can­dle busi­ness called “Su­per Busi­ness Girl.” Asia be­gan as Su­per Busi­ness Girl at age 5 when she started mak­ing can­dles and selling them in her Detroit neigh­bor­hood. With help from her mom and dad, she melts the wax, adds col­ors and pours the can­dles. Through Su­per Busi­ness Girl, Asia aims to teach at-risk youth how to be­come en­trepreneurs and em­power them­selves. She re­cently teamed up with Ellen for the Gap Kids Cam­paign. Ellen’s col­lec­tion is pretty spe­cial. The so­cial mes­sage is to get young girls to em­brace their in­di­vid­u­al­ity. Ellen also in­vested $10,000 in her busi­ness. Asia has been seen on bill­boards in Los An­ge­les and New York. Detroit’s youngest en­tre­pre­neur is sur­fac­ing across the na­tion. In an in­ter­view with CNBC it was re­ported that her more re­cent ac­co­lades was be­ing awarded 2015’s Emerg­ing Woman-Owned Busi­ness of the Year by Texas Gov. Greg Ab­bott. Tay­lor gives ad­vice to any­one who wants to pur­sue their dreams on shopesy­money.com: Some words of ad­vice to any­one else that wants to pur­sue their pas­sion are to never turn down an op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing new! Peo­ple say “fol­low your pas­sion,” but not ev­ery­one has found their pas­sion yet. Try­ing dif­fer­ent things will in­crease the chance that you’ll find what you love to do. I think the next step comes easy, and that is to im­merse your­self in what you love. It’s im­por­tant to set goals. Know what you want to achieve by pur­su­ing what you’re pas­sion­ate about. Fi­nally, I be­lieve it’s very help­ful to find a men­tor to guide and en­cour­age you. It is in­cred­i­ble how much peo­ple are will­ing to help you once they see your pas­sion and drive.”

At 16 years old, Hunger Games star Amandla Sten­berg is rep­re­sent­ing the black women in comics. Sten­berg is mak­ing her mark out­side of Hol­ly­wood and step­ping into the comic book arena. Sten­berg, along with Stranger Comics and black comic book il­lus­tra­tor Ash­ley A. Woods, cre­ated the comic “Niobe: She Is Life,” which chron­i­cles the life and ex­pe­ri­ences of a young black war­rior woman named Niobe Ayu­tami. In an in­ter­view with the Huff­in­g­ton Post, Sten­berg says that “Niobe is on a path to a des­tiny that will test her faith and her will, some­thing we can all re­late to. But there’s never been a char­ac­ter quite like her. She shat­ters the tra­di­tional ideal of what a hero is.” Source: http://www.the­root.com/blogs/the_­grapevine/2015/09/hunger_games_a­mand­la_sten­berg_ cre­ates_black­_­wom­an_war­rior_­comic_­book. html

............................................................................................................................... ................................................................ Gu­tier­rez is an avid reader, although he does not re­ject tech­nol­ogy that al­lows books to be read dig­i­tally, he prefers to read a hand held book. In an in­ter­view with Teen Tri­bune, Gu­tier­rez says that, “There is noth­ing more beau­ti­ful than hav­ing a book in your pocket, in your bag or in­side your car.” Gu­tier­rez has been res­cu­ing books from the trash for al­most 20 years. It all started when he was driv­ing a garbage truck at night through the coun­try’s wealth­ier neigh­bor­hoods. 20 years later he’s still col­lect­ing and the ground floor of his small house is a makeshift com­mu­nity li­brary. It is stacked from floor to ceil­ing with some 20,000 books. They range from chem­istry text­books to chil­dren’s clas­sics. Be­cause the new books are too ex­pen­sive for girls and boys in low in­come neigh­bor­hoods such as his, he has trav­eled to book fairs in Mexico and Chile to share his ex­pe­ri­ence of start­ing a li­brary with dis­carded read­ing ma­te­rial. At 53 years old, Gu­tier­rez still sifts through the rub­bish for ad­di­tions to his li­brary. He has sent many to other li­braries around the coun­try.

Don’t set your watch by it, or plan to be on time for school or any other ap­point­ments us­ing Bri­tain’s fa­mous clock. Of­fi­cials have re­ported that the fa­mous clock used by Lon­don­ers for decades to check the time - has re­cently been slow by as much as six sec­onds. sound. Although the clock tower is pop­u­larly known as Big Ben, the name ac­tu­ally refers to the 13-and-one-half-ton Great Bell in­side. The tower was re­named the El­iz­a­beth Tower in 2012 to mark Queen El­iz­a­beth II’s 60 years on the throne. The 156-year-old clock chimes ev­ery 15 min­utes and emits deep bongs to mark the hour. Staff at BBC ra­dio, which broad­casts the bongs live at 6 p.m., no­ticed its inac­cu­racy. Sources say that Ian West­worth, one of Par­lia­ment’s three clock smiths, told the BBC the clock had be­come “a lit­tle tem­per­a­men­tal” with age.

“Imag­ine run­ning your car for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for the last 156 years,” he said. Par­lia­men­tary of­fi­cials said me­chan­ics are plac­ing pen­nies on the pen­du­lum - or re­mov­ing them - to fine-tune its speed and will con­tinue to ad­just. The me­chan­ics had cor­rected the clock to within “nor­mal pa­ram­e­ters” - within 2 sec­onds of the right time.

EN­TER­TAIN­MENT Ser­ayah worked at H&M to help make ends meet while go­ing to au­di­tions. ASOS Mag in­ter­viewed the Em­pire ac­tress and of­fi­cial #Squad mem­ber Ser­ayah. Dur­ing the in­ter­view she shared her pre-fame life. “Be­fore I landed Em­pire, I was in col­lege, work­ing at H&M part-time,” she says. “I’d been go­ing to au­di­tions and mod­el­ing and I did a few Sketch­ers com­mer­cials. I have a friend from school whose mom is a cast­ing di­rec­tor and he told me about this char­ac­ter she was look­ing for re­ally, re­ally quickly, be­cause I think the past girl hadn’t worked out. So I went to au­di­tion three times in front of ex­ec­u­tives from Fox [the net­work that makes Em­pire] and the head of mu­sic at Columbia Records. I sang a Brandy song and I was to­tally ner­vous, but I got a call a cou­ple of days later say­ing, ‘ They love you and you’re com­ing to Chicago to film!” Source: http://www.teen­vogue. com/story/ser­ayah-in­ter­view-tay­lor-swift-em­pire?mbid=so­cial_­face­book

This year, Austin Gray is go­ing to wave to the crowd from the hood of a shiny pickup truck in the an­nual No-Je­sus Christ­mas Pa­rade, and fi­nally show the town bully that she’s got what it takes to be the Sweet­heart of Pros­per County! Austin will do al­most any­thing to be­come Sweet­heart, in­clud­ing join­ing the Fu­ture Farm­ers of Amer­ica and rais­ing an an­i­mal; a rooster with an at­ti­tude named Charles Dick­ens. She has lots of sup­port: her old­est friend, Mari­bel, her new FFA friends (in­clud­ing the reign­ing Sweet­heart and a very cute cow­boy), a mys­te­ri­ous Ca­jun out­cast, and an evan­gel­i­cal Elvis im­per­son­ator. But will her momma ever stop be­ing over­pro­tec­tive, and start let­ting Austin live her own life?

................................................................................................... Thir­teen-year-old Ce­leste Harris is no string bean, but comfy sweat­pants and a daily cho­co­late cookie suit her just fine. Her un­der-the-radar lifestyle could have con­tin­ued too, if her aunt hadn’t en­tered her in the Husky Peach Mod­el­ing Chal­lenge. To get out of it, she’s forced to launch Op­er­a­tion Skinny Ce­leste be­cause, af­ter all, a thin girl can’t be a fat model! What Ce­leste never imag­ined was that los­ing weight would help her gain a back­bone . . . or that all she needed to shine was a spotlight. A hi­lar­i­ous de­but fea­tur­ing friend­ship, fam­ily, mean girls and even celebrity crushes, Ce­leste’s story is a de­li­cious treat that doesn’t add a pound. ................................................................................................... Ten-year-old Zoe Elias has per­fect pi­ano dreams. She can prac­ti­cally feel the keys un­der her fly­ing fin­gers; she can hear the au­di­ence’s ap­plause. All she needs is a baby grand so she can start her lessons, and then she’ll be well on her way to Carnegie Hall. But when Dad ven­tures to the mu­sic store and ends up with a wheezy or­gan in­stead of a pi­ano, Zoe’s dreams hit a sour note. Learn­ing the or­gan ver­sions of old TV theme songs just isn’t the same as mas­ter­ing Beethoven on the pi­ano. And the or­gan isn’t the only part of Zoe’s life in Michigan that’s off-kil­ter, what with Mom con­stantly at work, Dad afraid to leave the house, and that odd boy, Wheeler Diggs, fol­low­ing her home from school ev­ery day. Yet when Zoe en­ters the an­nual Per­form-O-Rama or­gan com­pe­ti­tion, she finds that life is full of sur­prises--and that per­fec­tion may be even bet­ter when it’s just a lit­tle off cen­ter. ................................................................................................... From the au­thor of PER­FECT and LUSH, another novel that tells it like it is. The per­ils of deal­ing with a new step­fam­ily are il­lu­mi­nated with the same Blume-like heart and wit that Natasha Friend brought to PER­FECT and LUSH.
