Urban Stimuli: East Tampa incubator helps local small businesses thrive

August 16, 2018 - Occasionally, I have to be shaken out of my comfort bubble. That is, of craft coffee bars, runs along Bayshore Boulevard, and concerns about which brand of organic skincare to buy at Whole Foods.

It’s easy to forget the kinds of challenges, and solutions, that exist out in the wider world, even if only a few miles away. 5508 is the street number and name of Tampa Hillsborough Action Plan’s co-working space and business incubator. It’s nestled off East Hillsborough Avenue on the fringes of Tampa’s city limits, in an area not often traveled by most, among warehouses and industrial complexes.

Kellyanne Conway Has Trouble Naming A Top Black White House Aide

August 14, 2018 - 

Kellyanne Conway, the chief counselor to President Donald Trump, had difficulty on Sunday naming the top black aide working in the White House following the firing of former “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman late last year. Newman was the most prominent, high-level African-American in the West Wing as Trump’s director of communications for the White House office of public liaison. She was reportedly fired by White House chief of staff John Kelly for abusing her position and had to be physically removed from the premises.

Conway, asked on ABC’s “This Week” who would now rank as the highest-level black among personnel stationed in the West Wing, initially faulted host John Karl for not focusing on Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson. “The president works with the secretary every day,” she said.

10-Year Old Raises $50K for His Invention That Prevents Child Hot Car Deaths

August 6, 2018 - Bishop Curry is a 10-year old 5th grader from McKinney, Texas, and he's also the inventor of a prototype device that is designed to prevent children from dying in hot cars. His lifesaving device is called Oasis, and it attaches to children's car seats. If it senses that a child has been left behind in the seat, it will start to blow out cool air until the child is rescued. Initially Curry said his idea was to make a car seat cover with three fans, but now he also wants to create a full car seat with the ability to link up with a vehicle’s air conditioning system and turn it on automatically.
