Beta Version

Hello My Friends,

As you may have realized, I am still in my beta form. I am being worked on day and night to better assist my visitors. The site will be getting some major make over's in the next couple of months. I hope you will return over and over again and continue asking me some great questions.

Because of the great response the site is having here are some of the upgrades to look forward to. I am looking for some helpers so you will be able to choose a wiz kid to answer your question, we will be an official website with our current web host (no more ads at the top of the homepage, yuck). Please participate in our pole over there on the left side of your screen.

Thank You to our Supporters that I call My Friends.

Exciting Ideas

Aloha,

The Wiz Kid Staff have been extremely busy with the website. We have come up with some pretty cool ideas. We have had some really fun questions the past month. Some weeks we aren’t sure which to post up as there are some that are just plain AWESOME!! Here is a glance of a couple questions we answered in September:

Week of 9-26-08 Question: What language, still actively used, is spoken by the least amount of people?
Answer:
We found a couple of websites that show the least spoken languages of the world. Some have only 1 person who speaks these languages. There are 516 languages that are endangered. Of those 516 languages there are 5 sections: Africa, The Americas, Asia, Europe, and The Pacific. Within these sections there are a few that have only 1 person who speaks the language. Here are some that fall into the least spoken category:
Bikya
Bishuo
Luo
Katukina
Yamana
Zaparo
It would all depend on who is still alive that would categorize as the least language. These websites we found to be the most reliable:

Week of 9-19-08 Question: What is the incidence rate of Waardenburg syndrome2?

According to these articles the incidence rate of Waaredenburg Syndrome 2 is approximately 1 case per 42,000 individuals.

Each week on Friday we pick a question as our “Question of the Week”. You will be announced if your question is picked by a very special email. =)

We are in the beginning stages of launching our Monthly Newsletters (predicted date is the end of November). The Newsletter is going to be packed with fun games that will include prizes for the winners, we will also be talking about what to expect from www.yourwizkid.com in the future, and much, much more…

So you might have been wondering have we ever been stumped…. Well actually we have. LOL. It was a great question from someone but we are still working hard on getting that question answered. These are the types of things we will be discussing in our newsletter. So if you’re really intrigued just go on the site, ask a question and leave the newsletter box checked.


Hope that you have a fabulous weekend!!

Thanks,
~The Wiz Kid Staff

Updates

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend with friends and family! As for us we took a couple days off. Nothing major. New things going on. We are getting a lot of feedback from the site which is awesome. Some people like the music while others say they can do without it. What do you think?? Keep it or get rid of it? The questions have been great. And trying to answer them have been awesome. We are going to putting up "Question of the Week". So go on and try sending us a question!! You might be the lucky one on the Question of the Week. I will be blogging again in a couple of days.

Be good and be safe!

Intro and Launch of website

Hi,

Allow me to introduce myself. I am the Wiz Kid. You might be thinking hmmm does that mean you are a genius...... well no. LOL. I'm just your average person. I got the nickname from my best friend only because I know some cool technological tricks and I have years of useless information. LOL. Anyways this is the start of my new blog. I hope you enjoy it.

We officially launched our website. Yes my best friend gave us the nickname. The idea for a website just came to us. HAHAHA. Take a look if you want. Leave a fun question and see if we can answer it for you. By "we" I mean the yourwizkid staff. We got a couple of questions that were pretty interesting once we get a handful I will blog them. Here is the link:
