If you've been following Kim, Khloé, Kylie and Kendall's decade-long climb to fame, you've probably already viewed Fergie's “M.I.L.F. $” — to watch Kim take a milk shower, natch — and Tyga's “Stimulated” — for a peek at the rapper's relationship with then-girlfriend Kylie — more times than you'd feel …
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A new app is helping thousands of teens find work in the so-called “gig economy.” It’s called Skratch, and it’s geared towards young people who don’t have time for a steady job because of school and extracurricular activities. Adults list services they need, like child care or tutoring, and if they’re free teens will take on the gig. “I come home and I know I need to make dinner, make lunches for the next day, get things organized,” teen worker Alec Barath said. “I only did it on the weekends or in the summer. I never had time to really, like, balance it with my school stuff.” Teens have to be at least 14 to sign up and get their parents’ permission, and all users must pass a background check. Right now, Skratch is only available in Dallas but the app’s founder has plans to expand to other cities.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A Long Island history teacher said his Braille computer was stolen from his family’s car earlier this week. Jim Hughes said he and his wife arrived home late Tuesday after attending a PTA meeting so he decided to leave his Braille computer in the car, believing it would be safe there until the morning. But Hughes, who is blind, said around 3 a.m. his wife heard the car alarm go off and his bag containing the computer was gone. “She went in the car and just said, ‘Oh my god, your bag is gone.’ And I said, ‘Oh, my computer was in there!’” The Farmingdale School District, where Hughes has taught for 26 years, had purchased the $3,000 computer for him. “It has a Braille display so it doesn’t even have a visual. What it allows me to do is take notes and keep order in my life,” Hughes said. The teacher said the theft at first caused him to be angry but what’s come of it is actually positive. “The community was very supportive on Facebook, I also had a lot of phone calls and obviously the media support. It’s just amazing how people come together,’ Hughes said. He wants the thief to know, “In regards to my possession if you have it, leave it somewhere where it could be returned to me because there’s no value to you and I’m sure it would be extremely difficult to sell as well.” The district plans on replacing the computer.
