ADOMANI® Electric’s Jim O’Connell Reviews New All-Electric Trucks

Charging into the Future with new technology that will revolutionize truck transit

adomani electric (NASDAQ:ADOM)

We are seeing a lot of interest in our electric vehicles from small businesses to large vehicle fleet owners, especially since there is state funding available through the HVIP program in California."”

— Jim Reynolds, President and CEO of ADOMANI® Electric

REDWOOD CITY, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electric powered vehicles are our future. Clearly the merits of electric vehicles no longer needs to be spelled out to the public, who are well aware of the capabilities and benefits of electric propulsion. Most individuals who have driven electric-powered vehicles are completely sold that this technology and believe it will make the biggest impact to achieve efficient and clean transportation – both today and in the future. At the center of the wave of excitement over electric-propelled vehicles is ADOMANI® Electric which has been developing electric powered vehicles for some time. ADOMANI®'s highest visibility vehicles are electric-powered Bluebird school buses that are changing the way we look at student transportation.

But what may not be well known are the efforts of ADOMANI® engineers in developing a new line up of electric cargo Class 3 & 4 vehicles, which deliver high efficiency and a real work solution for fleet operators looking to reap the rewards of a totally electric truck line up. With up to 200 miles of range when fully charged (vehicle payloads and sub-zero temperatures will have an effect on range) these trucks are well equipped to handle the daily travel requirements demanded for most fleet vehicles.

Currently ADOMANI® Class 3 trucks (either a cutaway that is easily adapted to meet many industry needs or a van suitable for delivering anything from cargo to passengers) can be driven through appointment by interested parties. Recently Transportation directors and staff participated in Ride-and-Drive events in Pittsburg, San Jose, Fremont, and Twin Rivers California Unified School Districts. ADOMANI® is currently scheduling more Ride-and-Drive events in both Southern and Northern California as well as Nevada and Class 4 trucks are expected to be ready for public review in the near future.

"We have trade shows lined up in 2019 to showcase the zero-emission all-electric vehicles to different market segments," said Jim Reynolds, President and CEO of ADOMANI®. "We are seeing a lot of interest in our electric vehicles from small businesses to large vehicle fleet owners, especially since there is state funding available through the HVIP program in California."

The benefits of these vehicles are vast. ADOMANI® Electric Class 3 & 4 trucks eliminate all fossil fuel requirements along with the pollutants associated with internal combustion engines. As fleet managers are well aware, the volatile nature of changing fuel pricing can drastically affect operating costs. ADOMANI Electric cargo trucks eliminate that problem. In addition, vehicle maintenance requirements are drastically reduced through the elimination of oil changes, tune-ups and general internal combustion engine challenges.

When fleet managers equip their home base with an ADOMANI-compatible charging system, vehicles will be fully charged each morning avoiding the labor required to send them to a fueling location. Additional quick charges during the day, should a vehicle be required to travel further than the specified range, can be completed at the home base or field at any number of local charging facilities along their delivery route. In most cases, however, no boost charge will be needed due to the impressive range of these vehicles.

ADOMANI® electrification vehicle systems deliver years of service with minimal maintenance. As noted, fleet managers are no longer tethered to changing fuel prices and environmental “political” pressures to reduced carbon emissions – a problem that will only increase in coming years. A simple yet high efficient solution for businesses around the world, ADOMANI® Electric Class 3 & 4 trucks are the way of the future in cargo transportation.

Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship Network

Marist College, Poughkeepsie NY

GCSEN is dedicated to spreading the practice of Social Entrepreneurship to higher ed students, institutions, companies and non-profit entities across the world.

KINGSTON, NY, USA, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — GCSEN, The Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship Network (GCSEN Foundation) recently had eighteen teams of GCSEN-trained students from SUNY New Paltz and Vassar College enter the prestigious NY State Business Plan, Mid-Hudson Regional Competition held at Marist College, Poughkeepsie NY.

Immigration attorney Magdalena Cuprys comments on Lee v. US, involving immigration issues for a criminal defendant

The Lee case is of particular interest for defendants with immigration concerns. Such situations require competent immigration advice, opines Magdalena Cuprys.

Cuprys & Associates (N/A:N/A)

When faced with a court proceeding that may have grave consequences for one’s immigration status, it is critical to consult with an expert immigration attorney who can accurately advise the client”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer in Florida

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a newly published article, Miami Immigration Lawyer Magdalena Cuprys explains the Lee v. United States case. The complete article appears on the Blog of Ms. Cuprys at https://magdalenacuprysblog.blogspot.com/

The factual background of the case is succinctly laid out in the opinion. “Petitioner Jae Lee was indicted on one count of possessing ecstasy with intent to distribute. Although he has lived in this country for most of his life, Lee is not a United States citizen, and he feared that a criminal conviction might affect his status as a lawful permanent resident. His attorney assured him there was nothing to worry about—the Government would not deport him if he pleaded guilty. So Lee, who had no real defense to the charge, opted to accept a plea that carried a lesser prison sentence than he would have faced at trial.”

Unfortunately for Lee, “Lee's attorney was wrong: The conviction meant that Lee was subject to mandatory deportation from this country. Lee seeks to vacate his conviction on the ground that, in accepting the plea, he received ineffective assistance of counsel in violation of the Sixth Amendment.”

The Supreme Court agreed, as did everyone involved in the case, that Lee received objectively unreasonable assistance from his attorney. The issue was whether that unreasonable assistance resulted in prejudice to Lee. While the criminal conviction led to mandatory deportation for Lee, Lee did not have a reasonably viable defense for the criminal case and the likely outcome would have been a criminal conviction and a lengthier sentence than the one he received as a result of the guilty plea. Furthermore, a criminal conviction after the guilty plea still would have led to a mandatory deportation.

The record also established, however, that Lee’s paramount concern was avoiding deportation. During his conversations with his attorney and also during the plea allocution, evidence was plentiful that Lee wanted to ensure that he would not be deported as a result of his guilty plea. Therefore, the majority opinion agreed that even where chance of avoiding a conviction at trial was low, the certainty of mandatory deportation as a result of a plea compared to the chance of avoiding such a fate at trial was enough to constitute prejudice and thus established ineffective assistance of counsel.

The case is of particular interest for defendants with immigration concerns. When faced with a court proceeding that may have grave consequences for one’s immigration status, it is critical to consult with an expert immigration attorney who can accurately advise the client regarding all possible ramifications of the proceeding, opines Ms. Cuprys.

The case is Lee v. United States, 137 S. Ct. 1958 (2017).

Local Drug-Free Ambassador is the Newest Voice for Humanity on the Scientology TV Network

Darren Tessitore answers questions from audience at screening of Scientology TV’s Voices for Humanity

Darren is so dedicated to go so far to figure out how to get the materials out. Some people just do a little and give up. It is impressive to see someone so driven.”

— Christie Wood,

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Wednesday April 24th in the Fort Harrison auditorium, the Foundation for a Drug-Free world (FDFW) hosted a screening of the Voices for Humanity episode which featured FDFW Ambassador Darren Tessitore. There were over 110 guests attendance including, business owners, non-profit representatives and volunteers – all concerned about the damage and loss that drugs have wreaked in communities.

The 30-minute feature ended in a standing ovation for Darren Tessitore who was in the audience along with his 13-year-old daughter Sandra, who also played a part in her father’s drug-free work.

The mesmerizing video showed how Tessitore, recognizing that he couldn’t do it alone, reached out to other like-minded people who have the means of reaching thousands but didn’t the effective tools Tessitore has to educate youth and adults on the truth about drugs. Through the FDFW’s Truth About Drugs booklets, documentary and educators kit, Tessitore has now reached over 3 million people in 13 states across the US.

Christie Wood who is visiting relatives in Clearwater decided to attend the screening as she has been watching the Scientology network at home. She said, “These episodes are so well done. You have to cry when you watch it. You can’t help but hear the hooting and hollering with everyone here in the auditorium and not feel like crying. Darren is so dedicated to go so far to figure out how to get the materials out. Some people just do a little and give up. It is impressive to see someone so driven. The production was very beautifully made.”

After the showing, Darren took up several questions from the crowd to brief them more on the Truth About Drugs campaign and how they can help. There were questions such as, “How do I contact a school about the Truth About Drugs?” Darren answered the questions making it real how it is easy it is to help and get involved and then he gave his email: darrent@drugfreeworld.org.

Everyone deals with stress from time to time. Physician Kamal Pourmoghadam discusses the importance of effective stress management for the quality of your life.

Dr. Kamal K. Pourmoghadam (N/A:N/A)

Stress management can help one deal with the trials and tribulations of life and lower your chances of developing health problems”

— Dr. Kamal Pourmoghadam, Orlando, Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stress can affect people at any stage of their lives. Adults often suffer from stress because of issues stemming from their family and workplace. Academic and social pressures are often the cause for teens, such as difficulty studying and scoring good grades. They could also have difficulty acclimating to their school’s environment and making friends. Stress can also be caused by difficult relationships, bullying, unemployment, the loss of a loved one, among many other causes.

Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD, shares his thoughts in a new article, which is available on his blog at https://drpourmoghadam.home.blog/

Stress can have detrimental effect on your health in many ways. Frequent headaches, difficulty sleeping and concentrating, fatigue, unusual mood swings, and an upset stomach can all be caused by stress. The effects of long-term stress include high blood pressure, heart attack, abnormal changes in weight, depression, skin problems, and fertility problems.

Stress management can help one deal with the trials and tribulations of life and lower your chances of developing health problems. Some useful stress management tips that can help you deal with stress are as follows.

Stop Over-analyzing

Don’t let problems with office workload or difficult relationship affect your health. You should learn to accept some things as they are and understand the fact that excessive worrying and letting an issue overtake your mind won’t make things better. Focus on stop thinking and taking action.

Talking to people at the workplace about the problems may be a good idea. If you’re in a difficult relationship, talk to your partner and try to solve your problems by putting your differences aside. Taking action will likely lead to a more productive outcome and save you from over-thinking and getting stressed unnecessarily.

“So What?”

Sometimes it can help to imagine the worst that can happen. Ask yourself the “so what?” question. Thinking through the worst case scenario can help you maintain an optimistic attitude and accept life’s problems. You’ll understand the fact that there are certain events in life that you do not have power over. You cannot control those things or prevent them from happening.

Anger Control

Being upset and feeling furious over small issues in life can cause you to suffer from unnecessary stress. Remaining calm and solving problems logically instead of getting aggressive can reduce the stress you feel in your life.

Also, not every worry or thought need to be verbalized. Sometimes letting go of things and suppressing the urge to voice every thought can be helpful. Arguing needlessly will do nothing else except further complicate things and cause stress.

Exercise, Yoga, and Meditation

Utilizing tools such as meditation and yoga can help you gain control over your feelings and lower your chances of developing stress. Yoga helps to connect your mind and body. It can help calm you and help you in dealing with stressful situations. Also, daily exercise can help you fight stress by releasing endorphins that soothe your brain and lower stress.

Also important is getting proper sleep, eating a balanced diet, moderating your intake of alcohol, and managing your time efficiently. If you still find stress to be overwhelming, consult a medical doctor to help you manage stress and live a better life. Don’t ignore stress thinking that it will go away on its own. Following the above-mentioned stress management tips or seeking professional will help you manage stress and lead a healthy life.

Workshops have been approved by APA and the Judicial Council of California for continuing education credit.

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Palo Alto, CA – June 17th – 21st, 2019) CONCEPT Professional Training at Palo Alto University, a global leader in online professional training in forensic mental health, at Palo Alto University, Northern California's leading school of psychology and counseling, announced today that Dr. David Martindale will present two 1-day workshops focused on topics related to Child Custody evaluations and Risk Management for Custody Evaluators and Court Involved Therapists at this year’s Summer Training Institute at Palo Alto University June 17th-21st, 2019.

Summer Training Institute is 5 days of mix-and-match professional development workshops presented by internationally renowned experts in forensic psychology and mental health.

Allegations of Alienation or Child Sexual Abuse in Custody Evaluations
Presented by: Dr. David Martindale
1-Day | Monday June 17, 2019

Forensic psychological evaluations that are conducted in conjunction with disputes that include allegations of alienation or of child sexual abuse, are qualitatively different from other evaluations conducted in the context of litigation involving access to or custody of children. The disputes are atypically contentious, and much of the information needed by the evaluator must be obtained from the children, making the development of child forensic interviewing skills critically important. This workshop will focus on the acquisition of these skills. This workshop has been approved by the Judicial Council of California that qualifies for continuing education credit.

Risk Management for Custody Evaluators and Court Involved Therapists
Presented by: Dr. David Martindale
1-Day | Tuesday June 18, 2019

Mental health professionals performing forensic psychological evaluations in litigated custody/access disputes, and those who function as treatment providers to parents and/or children who are involved in such litigation, frequently express concern regarding the risk of licensing board complaints. For evaluators, this workshop will provide information regarding specific techniques that serve to reduce litigant animosity, a common precipitating factor in the filing of complaints. For treatment providers, this workshop will explore appropriate and inappropriate testimony content, and the risks to the therapeutic alliance of therapist testimony. This workshop has been approved by the Judicial Council of California that qualifies for continuing education credit.

Workshops are APA, CPA, ASWB, and NBCC board-approved. A complete listing of board approvals can be found at https://www.concept-ce.com/board-approvals/. California psychologists, social workers, counselors and MFT’s are all eligible for CE’s (CEU’s).

Girl Scouts Enjoy Tea Time at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center

The Girl Scouts Troop 2837 learned several tips & tricks from Peggy Patrick, Manners Educator, at their end of the year tea party.

The original procedure developed by man to oil the machinery of human relationships was ‘good manners’… Those with ‘bad manners’ are rejected.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

CLEAARWATER, FLORIDA, US, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On April 20th, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center hosted an etiquette workshop and afternoon tea for Girl Scout Troop 2837 of West Central Florida. The Tea Party was organized to help the troop celebrate the end of the Scouting year. The CCV Center provided its facilities and a variety of delicate pastries, finger sandwiches and an assortment of teas at no cost to the troop.

But the party was also an opportunity to learn. Peggy Patrick, manners educator, provided tips on formal and business etiquette to the young girls. The lesson gave the Girl Scouts the basics of forming and maintaining relationships and how to rise to leadership roles in alignment with the goals of the Girl Scouts Program.

Following the lesson by Ms. Patrick, the girls demonstrated their new found etiquette skills by practicing with each other as they drank tea and mingled with other troop members.

“Being able to get along with others is a fundamental part of life,” said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center. “One aspect of that is knowing and using manners when communicating with those around us. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote in The Way to Happiness, ‘The original procedure developed by man to oil the machinery of human relationships was ‘good manners’… Those with ‘bad manners’ are rejected.’”

The Girl Scouts program seeks to instill competence in outdoorsman-ship, STEM education, general life skills and entrepreneurship through a variety of activities including the sales of cookies, a hallmark of the Girl Scouts.

Thousands of Children Revel at the Clearwater Community Volunteers’ 27th Annual Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt

Children make a dash for Easter Eggs at the Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt in Coachman Park. Sponsored by the Church of Scientology, the event provided safe family fun for nearly 8,000 children and their families.

This was one of our most amazing Easter Egg Hunts ever! The weather was perfect and the kids had a lot of fun. You can’t ask for a better event than that!”

— Pam Ryan-Anderson, Exec. Dir. of the Clearwater Community Volunteers

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Easter Sunday, nearly 8,000 children and their families gathered in downtown Clearwater’s Coachman Park for the 27th Annual Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt, organized by the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV). The event featured pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, train rides, human gyroscope and bouncy houses all for a safe and fun-filled family day.

Volunteers began setting up the event at 7:30am on April 21st with the event officially beginning at 11:00 am. The principal attraction, a mad dash for 30,000 Easter eggs strewn about Coachman Park, began at 12:30 pm sharp.

Minutes before the starting time, children gathered in anticipation for the “3…2…1… GO!” announced by Pam Ryan-Anderson, Executive Director of CCV. Children ran and grabbed as many eggs as they could in search of the 300 golden Easter eggs that could be redeemed for a stuffed animal at “Bunny Central.”

Ms. Ryan-Anderson said, “This was one of our most amazing Easter Egg Hunts ever! The weather was perfect and the kids had a lot of fun. You can’t ask for a better event than that!”

Over 150 volunteers donated their time to setting up the various tents at the park, sound and A/V, driving the “Bunny Express” train, taking tickets at the inflatable slide and a thousand and one other jobs needed to ensure every child experienced a joyful event.

Before the hunt, an Elvis Presley impersonator took to the stage, singing the late King of Rock’s signature songs, to the delight of those in attendance.

“The Clearwater Community Volunteers strive to improve the lives of children across the Greater Tampa Bay Area.” said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center. “Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote that we should ‘Love and help children’, and that is exactly what we do with the annual Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt.”

Local Visitor Gets Inspired at Scientology Information Center

The Scientology Information Center housed in the historic Clearwater building with its gallery of displays, video screens and information panels. The center is open daily from 10am-10pm and requires no appointment to visit.

This was very interesting and actually very helpful. Everyone L. Ron Hubbard met had a story, and were inspired to pursue their goals.”

— Nicholas, local visitor

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Tuesday, April 22nd, Nicholas, an aspiring news anchor visited the Scientology Information Center with some “time on his hands” looking for something entertaining to pass the time before heading to his part-time afternoon job. Having visited the Information Center some years back, he had learned some things about Scientology’s beliefs, but he hadn’t learned about the founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard.

The Information Center has a permanent exhibit with panels and interactive audio/visual displays covering a biographical introduction and vignettes, leaders and officials speaking about L. Ron Hubbard’s legacy as a humanitarian and author and interviews with those who knew Mr. Hubbard.

“These individuals were the sailors that served as his crew of the naval ships he captained, they were his next door neighbors, fledgling writers, artists or businessmen he encouraged or those he employed at some of his residences around the world – but most of all, they were his friends,” said Ms. Amber Skjelset, the Center’s Manager. “Mr. Hubbard helped them to work towards their dreams and to carry on. From positive reinforcement, these people persevered and went on to achieve what they were striving for in life.”

Nicholas watched several of the interviews of the everyday people who happened to cross paths with Mr. Hubbard and was amazed by the diversity of people he interacted with from all over the world.

“Wow! This was very interesting and actually very helpful. Everyone L. Ron Hubbard met had a story, and were inspired to pursue their goals,” said Nicholas. “They had to work hard, of course – but they were inspired by the man who wrote Dianetics. And while they were never part of Scientology, his encouragement helped them go reach their goals. That taught me to not give up, no matter what obstacles are in the way.”

To learn more about L. Ron Hubbard’s life and legacy, the Scientology information Center is open daily from 10am-10pm or you can visit www.lronhubbard.tv or www.lronhubbard.org.

For more information about the Scientology Information Center please contact Ms. Amber Skjelset, at 727-467-6966 or e-mail her at amber@cos.flag.org.

higher ed web design award

KDG’s UI/UX team won a Gold Horizon Interactive Award

KDG’s work on Drexel University’s 2018 Day of Giving campaign won gold at the Horizon Interactive Awards.

ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For the second year in a row, KDG’s philanthropic crowdfunding team in Allentown, PA received a Horizon Interactive Award for their engaging day of giving platform built exclusively for Drexel University’s 24 Hours of Impact campaign in 2018. The team came away with a gold award, one of only six gold awards given in their category.

“We are thrilled that Drexel has once again been recognized,” says Kalyn Kates, lead UI/UX designer at KDG.

Drexel’s 2018 interactive donor portal was more gamified than ever before. Its building blocks and blueprint theme echoed the school’s renowned engineering and architecture departments. Meanwhile, a secret game opened for certain donors, allowing them to try their hand at some online puzzles. Winners had their donations increased with added gifts made possible by Drexel’s “game-changing” community.

“This is the first time ever that a game’s been built specifically for an online giving campaign,” said Kates. “Donors seemed to really enjoy the new feature. It inspired them to get their friends and family involved, too.”

The campaign marked another outstanding success for the Drexel community. Past campaigns created in partnership with KDG have been recognized with AVA Digital Awards, Communicator Awards, and Case platinum prizes.

About KDG: KDG has been a leading advisor in the business world since 2001. Using custom software development, small business IT support, and UI/UX design, the company has helped clients stop making it work and start making it happen.
