New York Times backs Talia for President in 2044

  Whether it is being appointed National Youth President by UNICEF or getting the backing of New York Times for President in 2044, accolades for Talia Leman’s continuing effort to make a difference keep flowing. Talia founded RandomKid, a worldwide non-profit to support causes around the world and the website, recently designed and launched by Flying Cow Design will help her connect with millions of children who share her vision around the world. Below is an extract from New York Times citing support for Talia as President in 2044! Talia for President – The New York Times For those of you who don’t happen to be named Barack, change in the next four years might seem a spectator sport. In the aftermath of a campaign, it’s natural to think that the agenda now is in the hands of our newly elected leaders, and that the agents of change will be government officials in Washington. Yet the best proof that you don’t need a White House pass to accomplish change comes from youthful social entrepreneurs around the country. Too naïve to realize that they are powerless, these kids are flexing remarkable muscle. If your image of a philanthropist is a stout, gray geezer, then meet Talia Leman, an eighth grader in Iowa who loves soccer and swimming, and whose favorite subject is science. I’m supporting her for president in 2044. Peter BrownCEO, Flying Cow Design Attended University of Auckland Lives in San Francisco Bay Area

Worldwide non-profit, RandomKid stands for “Giving”

A new breed of kids tries altruism on for size – USA Today By Jessica Durando, USA TODAY Talia Leman did not climb the corporate ladder like many other CEOs. For the 13-year-old, who co-founded a worldwide non-profit called RandomKid, her recipe for success involved one main ingredient: giving. “It’s my fuel, it’s my energy, it’s my power drink. I love it,” Talia says. “I just think when you see the impact you’re making, it is incredible to see.” Peter BrownCEO, Flying Cow Design Attended University of Auckland Lives in San Francisco Bay Area

Talia Leman National Youth Ambassador of UNICEF

Wow! That’s pretty good. Are you excited? TALIA LEMAN, UNICEF NATIONAL YOUTH AMBASSADOR: Yes. VERJEE: That’s amazing. How did you come up with this idea? LEMAN: Well, I really wanted to help out.

With the changing social dynamics and legal needs, Martenson, Hasbrouck & Simon LLP recognized the importance of having their website communicate their expertise better to a growing audience online. Having a website that merely listed their areas of specialization was no longer enough and the law firm needed to build a web presence that would not only reflect their expertise but also engage their visitors with useful information and legal insight through a number of sections on their new website including Employer Training, Mediation, Legal Alerts, Legal Glossary and more. Understanding the changing and growing legal needs of an increasingly web friendly audience base, Flying Cow Design, a leading web design company recently redesigned and launched the new look website for the law firm.

Laura and Peter were always quick to respond to my questions and were easy to communicate with. I do not have a technical background, so having Laura “hold my hand” through the process and teach me how to make my own changes to the website once it was completed was invaluable! Cheers to Flying Cow Design!” “The legal landscape is rapidly changing and so are people’s legal needs. For a leading law firm, having a website that recognizes and addresses these needs is critically important.

New Web Presence for Emergency Veterinary Hospital

MENLO PARK, CA — January 20, 2013 — Emergency Veterinary Hospital / Animal Urgent Care recently launched their new website, designed and developed by Flying Cow Design, a leading web design firm. Based in Menlo Park California, Flying Cow Design has worked with hospitals and other medical establishments over the years developing not just websites but helping their clients in the medical industry build a strong web presence. The changing medical and pet care needs have redefined the online needs for veterinary hospitals around the world. Emergency Veterinary Hospital recognized that it was no longer enough for a veterinary hospital to have a website that had dated, sketchy information about the hospital. Responding to the changing veterinary care needs of a growing web audience concerned about the medical care for their pets, Emergency Veterinary Hospital’s new website promises a lot. The website is rich in informative content about their veterinarians, referring veterinarians, newsletters, FAQs, and more. Talking to the media, John Anderson of Emergency Veterinary Hospital/Animal Urgent Care said, “Laura, Peter and the entire staff at Flying Cow Design have truly been a pleasure to work with during the design of our new website. Projects of this nature can truly be intimidating to undertake, especially when one has very little experience in the area, and they were always patient, professional, accommodating, but most importantly they made the process an enjoyable one. Thank you again for your great work on our new site!!!!!” “Animal care seldom gets the attention and visibility it deserves. While animals are the best of companions, friends and support system for people, when it comes to animal care, there seems to be a silent assumption that things would somehow happen automatically. We believe that every bit of visibility that the Emergency Veterinary Hospital can get would only help them continue and further the great work they have been doing in providing high quality animal care. For us at Flying Cow Design, it was not just another web design project, but a project that we identified with. It was both a matter of pride and pleasure working with the Emergency Veterinary Hospital”, said Peter Brown, CEO of Flying Cow Design, a leading Medical Website Design firm.
