Send a Meaningful Message to Young Children

What to gift nowadays to young children (ages 10 months to 6 years)? It seems easy, but not that easy.

-“I don’t know which one to pick. Too many choices.”

-“Many toys are similar. Just grab whatever you run into.”

You hear these all the time. This topic provokes deep thoughts. That’s why retailer Ten Octaves carefully selected toys & gifts that meet their criteria to be good choices for young children. Their products are very unique & are picked because of outstanding design, eco-friendliness, handmade products, organic materials &/or social responsibilities. Most of them are award winners. Some have upwards of 16 awards under their belts. Many collections are available. Dolls, puppets, rockers, balance bike, building toys, accessories even animal wall décor. Most of them are not found in your nearby toy/gift stores. Check out at TenOctaves.com, you will be surprised! Want unique, high-end toys & gifts? Look no further.

Kids are like sponges. When they get a gift, they are getting a message. Just like every word heard by infants. They will understand in their own way, on their own terms & on their own pace. It’s up to parents to send a meaningful one starting from a young age. 😉

Perks of Going to High School Online: Why Parents & Students Love Online Learning

Today’s families choose from a variety of different schooling opportunities — such as traditional K-12 schooling, homeschooling or high school online. While educational choice is a great thing, some parents can get confused about which one is right for their child.

You are most likely familiar with traditional brick & mortar high schools. Chances are that you even attended one yourself. Homeschool is another option, but this option puts a lot of pressure on parents to teach the coursework. What parent wants to teach Chemistry or Geometry or Physics? Not many that I know of.

High school online is the perfect balance between the two previous options. It gives parents & students more academic control, without relying on a parent to take on the role of a teacher.

That’s why American High School is a perfect choice for parents & students. Homeschoolers enroll in the online school because it allows them flexibility in their learning. With online learning, motivated homeschooled teens don’t need to be held back by classes that must take four years to complete. Instead, the homeschooled students can choose an online high school that allows students to finish courses as fast as they are able to complete the coursework. Many online high school graduates have earned their diplomas & moved on to ​college one or two years ahead of their peers.

Here’s some more information about the benefits of attending American High school online:

  1. Online classes are available 24/7 every day, which means students can participate in their education when they want & take breaks as needed.
  2. Students can choose their own learning pace. They can advance more quickly in subjects they like & they excel in and take extra time on subjects when needed that they don’t like as much (Math as an example).
  3. Students who attend American High School online can access their lessons, ebooks, videos, journals, discussion boards, PowerPoint presentations & any other coursework material ANY time they want.
  4. Teachers at online schools tend to be more accessible to students — this is primarily attributed to the ease of communication through the traditional email & telephone, as well as video to email & video to phone. These various communication tools allow online students to email, chat, text or even call their teachers.
  5. Online schools use multiple forms of teaching materials, including videos, slideshows & lecture notes. These methods are more accommodating to different learning styles.
  6. One-on-one interactions with instructors create a safe & comfortable learning environment.
  7. The U.S. Department of Education reported that research shows students who attend online schools excel at a rapid rate.
  8. Fashion woes are a thing of the past. No one cares what you’re wearing when you attend high school online. You can go to school in your pajamas & get up at 10 a.m. to start their online course.
  9. Where you live plays a big part in what traditional school your child can attend, & the options aren’t always desirable. Online high school is global. No matter where you live, your child has a great schooling option.

Another major perk of attending American High School online is the way it can prepare students for college. Children who go to high school online receive an excellent education that is based on the core curriculum needed for entrance to college, as well as the elective courses that colleges often look for to ensure a student is well rounded. Online students are well prepared for college because they’ve learned to work independently, which is a necessary skill for college success.

Online students have plenty of opportunity to interact with their offline peers by enrolling in extracurricular activities, such as karate lessons, dance lessons, youth group at church, charity work & teen clubs. American High School online students can attend full-time or part-time, meaning these students are also enrolled at a traditional high school & are still able to participate in those school-sponsored extracurricular activities. Regardless of the situation, online students are able to fit extra activities into their schedule easily because online high schools are incredibly flexible.

Teen Sisters Bet Wearable Toys are the Next Big Thing; Launch Kickstarter for New “Curly Petz” Toy Invention

After winning 1st place at the annual San Diego Inventor’s Forum Contest for their innovative creation of “Curly Petz”, Tana & Myla Zapf knew they were on to something. The entrepreneurial sister’s unique stuffed animal invention has earned them patents in the U.S & E.U.

“When we were little kids both of us lost special stuffed animals. We remembered how traumatic it was for us,” said Tana. “We came up with the idea of a stuffed animal that would hold on to a child instead of the child having to hold on to the stuffed animal.”

“Kids get distracted & tired when they’re playing,” added Myla. “How many times have parents, like ours, retraced their steps through the park, the playground, or the store, looking for that special toy?”

Curly Petz is designed around the wildly popular slap bracelet, easily curling around your arm or wrist. Kids love cuddling & playing with the animals & “slapping” them on, while parents love that they won’t get lost or fall on the ground. 

Additionally, a specially designed magnetic wall mount acts as the Petz “Home Base” & keeps them organized & off the floor at home.

“We’ve had an extensive education outside of school about the business world, meeting with a manufacturer in place & several more animal designs ready-to-go — the Zapf sisters are excited to Kickstart their business, hoping to join the ranks of successful kid inventors. The campaign runs through 3/2/17! www.CurlyPetz.com

Cover Reveal! F*ck Club: Riley by Shiloh Walker!

 
Title:
F*ck Club: Riley (Book One)
 
Author:
Shiloh Walker
 
Release Date: January 27th 2017
 
 
 
 
 
 
The first rule of F*ck Club…we don’t talk about
it. We just do the job and get paid. 
 

 

And Riley Steele did his job very well. 


 

 

He’ll be the first to admit that his current life isn’t the one he’d foreseen.
It’s not even one he wants, but after his parents died and he was left to care
for two siblings and a mountain of debt, he was willing to do almost anything. 


 

 

Now, after almost ten years of being paid to pleasure, he’s almost numb to
it…and to women. 


 

 

That all changes with one phone call. 


 

 

Brianna Sharpe, the girl he’d loved as a boy, is leaving an abusive lover and
needs someplace to hide. 


 

 

Opening his home to Bree is easy. Protecting his heart is a different story.
She’d completely shattered it once already. 


 

 

But Bree has changed and Riley wants to think there might be a chance.
Only…what will she do when she discovers his secrets?

SCREAMXO is the One Social Media App to Rule Them All

Today’s social media landscape is messy – there are so many different social networks & messaging platforms, with so many different ways to interact with your friends, family & acquaintances. So what if there was a way to bundle all those social media experiences into one all-inclusive social media app?

That’s the premise behind SCREAMXO, a one-stop social networking platform that will help to organize your online social life. Through a simple, intuitive user interface, there are five simple tabs – Media Buffet, Shop, Stream, Time & Social – that correspond to the way people really use the web in 2016. Media Buffet is a way to share, stream & upload multimedia content, Shop is an e-commerce storefront, Stream is a microblogging feature, Time is a way to change how long your media & chat content stays visible, & Social is an easy-to-use messaging service.


These five functions consolidate the best features of the most popular social networks like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat & Twitter, but then add a few features that even these networks don’t have. Take for example, the auto-delete feature found within the Time function of the app. You can opt to have your social media updates auto-delete within a specific period of time, much like the auto-delete functionality of Snapchat. Or, take for example the Stream function of the app – it offers the same ease of microblogging as Twitter, but takes the 140-character limit & tosses it out the window. It’s microblogging without limits. The core use case for SCREAMXO is for active social media users who want one single place to go for everything they do online. With SCREAMXO, you can share, upload & stream unlimited music & video. You can buy & sell items online using your bankcard, PayPal or Bitcoin. You can post quick microblogging updates about what you’re doing in real-time & you can message your friends with the “Easy Social” feature. Instead of constantly opening & closing apps on your smartphone screen, you have a way of staying within the same app for all of your social experiences.


According to the app’s founder, Ugochukwu Okafor, there’s one more way the app might be used. Young creative professionals in cities like New York & Los Angeles can use the SCREAMXO app to connect with their core audiences online. They can uploads photos & videos of their work, sell venue tickets, organize merchandise giveaways, or run marketing campaigns – all from within the same app. Since all the content on the app is stored in the cloud, you can take your creative business – whether you’re an artist or a music band – anywhere your smartphone goes.

“Our innovative app is a game-changing amalgamation of the best techniques of today’s social networking sites. We are glad to bring to you a marvelous Christmas gift this year,” says Okafor.
Already, the momentum is starting to build for the Christmas launch of SCREAMXO. In certain neighborhoods of Brooklyn, emoji stickers with the words “SCREAMXO” have started to appear – part of a grassroots effort to build buzz for the app. So far, access to the app is by subscription-only, but the team at SCREAMXO has been offering online sneak previews of the app before the grand launch on Christmas Day. It’s a gift that many people already can’t wait to start unboxing. Go sign-up today – you don’t want to miss out screamxo.com!
