Grant Program Helps Electrify New Wave of Zero Emission School Bus Deliveries

ADOMANI-powered School Buses are revolutionizing student transportation

ADOMANI®-powered school bus deliveries aided by California Energy Commission's grant program

Adomani Electric (NASDAQ:ADOM)

The grant solicitation announced $75 Million in Clean Energy Job Creation funding to fund projects that replace old diesel school buses in California”

— California Energy Commission

REDWOOD CITY, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 13, 2019 / — Electrified Public School buses are clearly the future of student transportation. ADOMANI Electric, a leader in electrified vehicle technology, has developed a wide array of fully electric school buses and other utility vehicles for the public use. The recent sale of a fleet of electrified cargo vans to the city of Santa Clara is just another validation as to the impact of their electrification platforms.

Working with BlueBird, one of the largest school bus producers in the world, ADOMANI developed, produces and delivers all-electric school buses with 125 miles of range and simplified recharging parameters. Recent successes include delivery of an all-electric Bluebird/ADOMANI school bus to the Fowler Unified School District outside of Fresno and five buses to the Twin Rivers School district in northern Sacramento County. Vehicles such as this fit perfectly with the recent release (June 3, 2019) of the California Energy Commission's Grant Solicitation program that will help fund electric school bus sales throughout the state.

Clearly the first question a public school board needs to address with regards to full electrification of their bus fleet is paying for them. California has already mandated that all new school bus purchases after 2020 must be electrified. The California Energy Commission's Grant Solicitation program will help fund the procurement of new fully electric school buses across the state.

"The grant solicitation announced $75 Million in Clean Energy Job Creation funding to fund projects that replace old diesel school buses in California," their recent report states. "These funds are evenly distributed among four regions ($18.75 million per region (Northern, Central, Southern California and Los Angeles, County). The Clean Transportation Program component of this solicitation was an offer to fund up to $60,000 in electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure for each of the electric school buses awarded under this solicitation."

Recent advancements in ADOMANI's line of efficient and clean electric school buses are the perfect fit for the future of student transportation. Of key interest to school administrators, ADOMANI offers a program that converts original diesel buses to all electric at far less cost than new electric buses. Using California Energy Commission funds and state-available rebates, these buses could cost school districts zero dollars to make upgrade to full-electric propulsion. That's a plan we can all get behind.

ADOMANI, Inc. is a provider of zero-emission all-electric and hybrid drivetrain systems for integration into new school buses and medium to heavy-duty commercial fleet vehicles, as well as re-power conversion kits for the replacement of drivetrain systems in combustion-powered vehicles. ADOMANI® is focused on reducing the total cost of vehicle ownership and helps fleet operators unlock the benefits of green technology. In addition, ADOMANI® helps address the challenges of traditional fuel price instability and local, state and federal environmental regulatory compliance. For more information, visit www.

Study Shows Strong Relationship Between Afterschool and Early Reading Proficiency

Data from 9,000 K-3 students demonstrates afterschool programs that includes structured reading interventions can accelerate significantly literacy proficiency

Let’s continue to invest in afterschool and get more educational value out of our existing programs for the good of all children.”

— Andrew Hysell

TOPEKA, KANSAS, USA, June 13, 2019 / — A new study discovers a strong connection between attending afterschool reading interventions and a child’s early reading proficiency.

The study commissioned by the Reading Roadmap (RR) suggests afterschool programming that includes structured reading interventions aligned with school-day data can accelerate significantly literacy proficiency among young, striving readers.

This study analyzed school individual-level data of 9,000 elementary students across 58 different schools over the 2017-18 academic year. The study compiled data from school-administered reading assessments including AIMSweb, DIBELS and FastBridge. The study compared progress toward reading benchmark among elementary-age children that attended school-based afterschool programs with those that did not.

The study found children attending afterschool reading interventions were 26% more likely to reach benchmark than their non-attending peers. According to the study’s author, Mustafa Yilmaz, “The effect of the relationship was equivalent to a 1.7% greater chance of achieving benchmark reading for every day a child attended afterschool. That is quite significant.”

The study suggests that structured afterschool reading interventions, when done in concert with school instruction, can accelerate overall reading progress.

“When a child enters kindergarten, it’s a four-year race for her to learn how to read,” said Andrew Hysell, RR Director. “If she cannot achieve early reading proficiency by the third grade, she will face barriers for the rest of her life.”

Supplemental tutoring outside the school day is considered essential for a reader that is behind. For example, the Center for American Progress prioritizes “provid[ing] a tutor for every child performing below grade level” as its number one recommendation to improve education.

Unfortunately, families without resources cannot pay for professional tutoring, and families in rural communities often lack any high-quality options regardless of cost. Therefore, afterschool programs are the only option for these families and their children.

“School-based afterschool reading intervention is literally their only lifeline,” said Hysell. “The evidence continues to pile up that afterschool programs can be an effective delivery device for high-quality reading interventions for children that need them. Let’s continue to invest in afterschool and get more educational value out of our existing programs for the good of all children.”

A formal report of the RR’s findings is available here.

Highlights of the report include:

● Students who attend afterschool interventions regularly saw their probability of moving to benchmark increase by an average of 26%;
● The predicted probability of students reaching benchmark reading who attended RR afterschool programs was as high as 38% greater than their non-attending peers; and
● Each day of afterschool attendance translated into a 1.7% increase in likelihood of being a grade-level reader.

The RR provides a structured afterschool reading program supporting children PK-3. The model aligns with school-tiered systems of support and provides reading interventions in the five pillars of early literacy: phenome awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.

David: The King of Jerusalem A Hero for All Ages

Coming Soon!

A Holy Land Experience Premier

Coming to the “All New” Holy Land Experience in Orlando, FL, beginning June 18th

Holy Land Experience is an entertaining, inspiring, family-friendly theatrical theme park that ignites the values you believe while providing a full day of adventure, entertainment, and fun.”

— Sherri Patko



David: The King of Jerusalem, an original musical, is coming to the “All New” Holy Land Experience in Orlando, FL, beginning June 18th!

Join us as we take you on a journey back in time to the pivotal moments in history that paved the way for a hero after God’s own heart.

Created by internationally recognized directors Robert and Elizabeth Muren, this production brings you the ultimate grace experience.

A combination of a theatrical stage performance and an interactive film backdrop on big screen, the production features all-new, captivating music with lyrics from the Book of Psalms.

It follows the life of David from the time he is a young shepherd boy who is always overlooked by his father and older brothers, to when he becomes the king of Israel, and ultimately to the time he rests with his fathers. In his lonely moments as a shepherd boy, David develops an intimate relationship with God, his unseen Father, with whom he is always seen. His high esteem of this relationship is what causes him to be called a man after God’s own heart.

As king, the adult David enjoys the perks of success and power and doesn’t always heed God’s counsel. Nevertheless, His unseen Father never leaves him. He is with David even through the adulterous act with Bathsheba, the murder of Uriah, and the subsequent tragedies. It is during the tumultuous years of the older David’s reign that he faces an uprising within his own household and is forced to confront his secrets and fears.

As he discovers which of his sons will be his successor, he remembers that man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart. The musical reveals a God who doesn’t force His will on any person, a Savior who is full of grace and mercy, and a Father who desires more than anything to have a relationship with His children.

The “All New” Holy Land Experience is a must visit theme park during your Summer adventure in Orlando, FL and is a great destination rain or shine. Guests can enjoy multiple, original musical productions, biblical museum exhibits, restaurants and gift shops throughout the day in our beautiful air-conditioned buildings.

Holy Land Experience is an entertaining, inspiring, family-friendly theatrical theme park that ignites the values you believe in, while providing a full day of adventure, entertainment, and fun. Come, and create great memories that will last a lifetime! Ticketing information for David is available at The live musical production will run with daily shows until the Christmas Season starts on November 26, 2019.

Credit Unions can proactively monitor suspicious activity on your account when you set up account and fraud alerts ahead of your vacation. They especially recommend this if you plan on traveling abroad. Sign up for text alerts with your Credit Union to protect you, your money, and your identity.

3) Budget for Your Trip

It is always a good idea to have a plan for spending ahead of a trip. Budgeting will help outline how much you should plan on spending and many find that it is helpful to set daily limits for spending or withdrawals while on vacation. 1st United Credit Union members can talk with branch staff if you need assistance making a budget for your trip or simply utilize their online money manager tool.

4) Automate Bill Payments

If you will be away for an extended period of time during your vacation, it may be a good idea to set up one-time or recurring bill payments.

Actions Conquer Tragedy The Reagan Tokes Legacy accepted into AOF and Hollywood Dreams Film Festival

A tragic story turned into an empowering message of strength, faith, hope, courage and love.

The Tokes Family: Reagan, McKenzie, Lisa,Toby

Lisa Tokes with Rob Fletcher gathering an army to educate, raise awareness and teach safety and self defense

A tragic story with a very empowering message, mission & purpose. “Evil will not win. Good will prevail. Actions Conquer Tragedy" .

I refuse to let that one night of evil define our daughters life and legacy. Evil will not win. Good will prevail. Actions Conquer Tragedy”

— Lisa Tokes

COLUMBUS, OH, UNITED STATES, June 13, 2019 / — Executive producers Rob Fletcher and Lisa and Toby Tokes announce the acceptance of movie trailer “Actions Conquer Tragedy: The Reagan Tokes Legacy” into the Del Weston Action on Film Festival and the Hollywood Dreams Film Festival to be held in Las Vegas July 24–Aug. 3, 2019.

The trailer highlights a story that is every parent’s worst nightmare. On February 8, 2017, 21-year-old Ohio State University student Reagan Tokes was robbed, raped, abducted and murdered. Before being shot twice in the head, Reagan’s final words were “I just want to live.”

The story of Reagan’s parents, Lisa and Toby Tokes, is emotional and compelling. They deliver an empowering message of strength, faith, hope, and courage – most importantly, of love – as they move forward in fighting the system, laws, and policies that failed them. Their daughter’s life and legacy will be defined by “Actions Conquer Tragedy.”

Says Executive Producer Rob Fletcher, “This story, which we hope is picked up by a production company or producer, is powerful on so many levels. These parents define themselves after tragedy took away their most precious gift. How the Tokes have the strength to hold on is amazing. They chose to fight, make a difference and save lives. Lisa and Toby selflessly sacrifice to prevent a similar horror from striking another family.”

Reagan’s murderer was a violent criminal who was released from prison early, in spite of committing 52 infractions while incarcerated. He was released with a GPS ankle bracelet that was not monitored. Prior to murdering Reagan, he violently victimized six other people. Lisa and Toby Tokes believe their daughter’s murder was entirely preventable. Instead of taking time to grieve, they took action and brought to fruition the Reagan Tokes Act which gives state prison officials the ability to take an offender’s prison record into account when deciding to release or retain the individual behind bars and also require formal guidelines for parolee monitoring. 

Lisa Tokes says, “This is a journey I wish I was never on. However, I refuse to let that one night of evil define our daughter's life. This is what we must do. This is what Reagan would want us to do. Evil will not win. Good will prevail.” As a result, the Actions Conquer Tragedy movement was born.  

Actions Conquer Tragedy represents the ongoing effort to fix flawed laws and policies and also educate and train on safety and self-defense. Rob Fletcher is a recognized self-defense and combative tactics expert who offers programs in schools and businesses across the country. Reagan’s story touched him to the core, and he now partners with Lisa Tokes in presenting these programs. His signature program, sdi7 HIIT (self-defense in 7 minutes high intensity interval training), is gaining attention and momentum, raising awareness and teaching self-defense and how to protect others. “Crime, violence, active shooters will never go away.” Rob’s mission is prevention and saving lives.

The Actions Conquer Tragedy movement is real. The Reagan Tokes gala, now an annual event, raises money for a scholarship foundation that bears Reagan’s name. Another annual event is the sdi7 HIIT Safety & Self-Defense Conference that brings together law enforcement, military, martial arts, fitness, and special ops professionals to deliver information and expertise in the areas of safety, prevention, awareness, fitness, and self-defense, including weapon disarmament, learning how to fight back and where and how to strike, and active shooter detection and response.

Have you ever wondered whether the prescription you just received may actually be a placebo? Read the new article by Dr. William Matzner to learn more about it.

Healthcare Analytics, LLC (N/A:N/A)

the placebo effect can’t be said to be positive at all times. One of its drawbacks is the difficulty to tell the placebo effect apart from the effect of an actual treatment.”

— Dr. William Matzner, California (Healthcare Analytics, LLC)

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 13, 2019 / — A placebo is a common medical treatment prescribed by doctors, psychiatrists, or health care consultants to provide a psychological benefit to the patient instead of a physiological one. Placebos come in many forms, the most common ones being inert injections and tablets and have no therapeutic effect on the user whatsoever.

Dr. William Matzner has published an overview article on this issue. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Matzner at

While every placebo is different, what is common among each one of them is that they lack an active ingredient that has the ability to affect the user’s health.

Uses of Placebos

A placebo is typically used by researchers during clinical trials to discover what effect a new drug or treatment might have on a patient. For example, some patients in a study may get a new drug to control their diabetes, while others may get a placebo. However, the patients involved in the study wouldn’t be able to tell whether they got the placebo or the new medicine as these patients are chosen at random to receive either the placebo or the actual medicine.

Later on, researchers will compare and contrast the effects that the real drug and the placebo had on their patients. This helps them determine the uses, effects, and potential side-effects of the new treatment.

What Does Placebo Effects Mean?

Sometimes, a person may react to a placebo even though the placebo made no difference to their condition. In other words, they may suffer from certain side-effects or may experience a positive outcome as a result of consuming a placebo. For example, it is likely for the patient to observe some improvements in their condition. Or it is also likely for them to deal with some serious side-effects. Such responses are popularly known as the “placebo effect.” Research shows that a placebo can have an effect on the following conditions:

* Menopause
* Irritable Bowel Syndrome
* Chronic pain
* Depression
* Sleep disorders

How Does the Placebo Effect Work in the Human Body?

Clinical research shows that the placebo effect has a lot to do with the relationship between the mind and the body. One of the theories of the placebo effect concerns the patient’s expectations. For example, if a patient expects a pill to work in some way, then it is likely for the body’s chemistry to react in the same way as the new medication ought to.

Experts are of the view that it also depends on how strong-willed a person is and how much a patient is looking forward to getting positive results. If the person is optimistic about a certain placebo treatment, then it is likely for the medicine to exhibit positive results. The same is true for the negative effects. If the patient is convinced that the placebo will cause side-effects, then people may suffer from common side-effects such as nausea, lethargy, headaches, etc.

Studies show that placebos in medical treatments can result in certain physical changes — for example, an increase in the production of endorphins in the body. However, the placebo effect can’t be said to be positive at all times. One of its drawbacks is the difficulty to tell the placebo effect apart from the effect of an actual treatment.

Florida Attorney Advised Residents of Rights under the Baker Act in Seminar at Mental Health Watchdog Headquarters

CCHR says its Psychiatric Abuse Hotline gets about 80 calls a month from someone concerned about their child, a friend or loved one who has been Baker Acted and in many instances the victim did not meet the legal criteria to be sent to a psychiatric facility.

CCHR receives too many calls on a weekly basis from families whose loved ones were illegally taken into custody under the Baker Act. This abuse must end.”

— Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, June 13, 2019 / — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the exposure and eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health, hosted a complimentary seminar with attorney and former Assistant Public Defender, Carmen Miller, Esq., to educate Floridians on their mental health rights. This seminar took place on Wednesday, 12 June at the CCHR Florida headquarters, 109 N. Fort Harrison Ave. in downtown Clearwater. Ms. Miller addressed abuses of Florida’s main mental health bill, the Baker Act, with preventative actions citizens can take to safeguard themselves and their families. Ms. Miller has extensive experience in criminal and family justice, given her previous 8-year tenure as Assistant Public Defender in the Thirteenth Circuit in Tampa. Her private practice today specializes in cases of those who have been Baker Acted.

While the original stated intention of the Baker Act was actually to protect the rights of citizens sent for involuntary psychiatric examination, Ms. Miller noted that it has become a source of abuse for Floridians. The Baker Act allows for individuals of all ages, including children, to be taken into custody and sent for an involuntary psychiatric examination, often against their will, or without parental consent in the case of children.

The number of people being “Baker Acted,” as the act of involuntary commitment is commonly called, has risen 118% between 2001 and 2016, according to a report from the Department of Children and Families. [1] Another recent official report shows that more than 199,000 involuntary psychiatric examinations were done in Florida, with over 32,000 of these done to children — some as young as two-years-old. [2]

“The Baker Act is being abused and is being used incorrectly on people of all ages,” said Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida. “CCHR receives too many calls on a weekly basis from families whose loved ones were illegally taken into custody under the Baker Act. This abuse must end.”

CCHR launched its statewide mental health campaign in 2015 to educate Floridians on little-known abuses tied to the Baker Act. The campaign has included distributing educational materials at law establishments, publishing online and print materials for parents, and conducting free public seminars.
