Parents: Help Discover and Develop Children’s Talents with KidsTal!

KidsTal is an online tool launched to change the way parents choose extracurricular activities for their children and allow children from an early age to grow aptitudes giving them satisfaction and fulfillment for their entire lives.

“According to official statistics and other studies, 2 million Americans quit their jobs every month, 74 percent consider finding a new job and 32 percent are actively looking for new work,” said Greg Turkanik, CEO. “Part of the problem is these workers never found a profession offering them fun, happiness and fulfillment. Collectively we can change that for our children by cultivating their talents early on in life.”

KidsTal was co-founded by Turkanik and Matt Schelinski, designed by a group of psychologists, early childhood educators and backed by research to help parents discover at an early age the natural talents of their children. The online assessment is not a categorical IQ test, but a liberating discovery process to define talents and passions to be cultivated well into adulthood.Kidstal

For ages 3 through 9, the online picture based survey only takes a few minutes for the child and is fun and easy. Initial results are ready to review in about 15 minutes and can be enhanced by asking others that know the child well to take-part in the survey for an almost 360 degree assessment.

Their science backed service is now available for everyone!

Lake County Motorcycle Club Announces “Topless” Car Wash & Poker Run

Lake County based family motorcycle club Fallen Few is planning their annual Cruisin for St. Jude charity poker run on November 16, 2013.  Before the poker run even begins though they’re planning another charity event to help with fundraising.  On October 5 the guys of the club will be doing a “Topless Car Wash” at Little Lake Harris Pub (13721 Country Club Dr. Tavares, FL 32778) beginning at 11a.  All types of vehicles are welcomed at the carwash and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  The proceeds are in honor of Blake, a young boy who passed away after a tough battle with cancer.

Each year, thousands of motorcycle rides end with the unsettling sound of a crash and a rider down. The same aspect of a motorcyclists are nearly 30 times more likely to die or obtain serious injuries following a motorcycle accident that a car accident. The wide-open ride of a motorcycle offers little protection for riders, and they ultimately take on the full impact of the accident. More often than not, motorcycle accidents are caused by negligent car drivers who are unaware of the presence of a motorcycle. No matter the cause of the accident, it is clear that motorcycle riders are in need of strong legal representation who understands the dangers of sharing the road with vehicle drivers, and can hold them accountable i an accident occurs. A motorcycle accident can negatively affect every aspect of a rider’s life, and Kiley Law Group Massachusetts has fought for the compaensation riders need to get themselves and their families back on their feet.

On November 16 the poker run will begin with breakfast at 8:30a at Lake County’s AmVets branch (32201 Amvets Way, Mount Dora).  Kickstands are kicked up at 11a.  The final stop of the run is the Corner Pub (1996 CR 452, Eustis).  There will be numerous events and activities planned throughout the day including a blood drive, legal advice about motorcycle accident claim, bike and car wash, bike contest, poker hands, raffles, along with plenty of music and food.

Last year’s event raised over $9,000 and this year’s goal is even higher.  Check out their website for more information.
