Most Kiddle search results are illustrated with big thumbnails, which makes it easier to scan the results, differentiate between them, and click the most appropriate results to your query. Thumbnails serve as visual clues and are especially beneficial to kids as they don't read as fast as adults. 
Kiddle use a .co instead of a .com domain?: In Kiddle's case "co" stands for "children only".
Kiddle is powered by Google Safe Search but is not affiliated with Google Inc.

My unsolicited advice for Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway and the team

My unsolicited advice for Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway and the team | Tools for ELL Learning | Scoop.it

During my eight years in the Obama administration, there was an offhand comment uttered from time to time in the hallway after something went off the rails, "It's a communications problem."

 

The reality is that is the case sometimes, but most of the time the problem is much larger.

 

Some of the major fumbles of the first few weeks of the Trump administration have been due to the communications team: whether it was the sloppy rollout of the executive order on immigration or the series of television interviews with senior officials who were either unprepared, out of the loop or pompous enough to think they could wing it with a network anchor.

 

But not all the problems are communications issues....
