Take the Lead Cycling Scholarship Means New Bike Day for Keishawn Blackstone

first_imgWe recently made a trip out to Los Angeles, CA to visit one of our 2014 Take The Lead Cycling Scholarship recipients. Along with the help of our friends at Bike Effect in Santa Monica, we were able to deliver a brand new KindHuman Kampionne complete bicycle and loads of other KindHuman goodies to Keishawn Blackstone. Keishawn recently went through a big transformation. Before he discovered the bike, he was a self proclaimed “big kid.” Today, he is a healthy and active young cyclist who is showing the world that if he can lose the weight – they can too.When we had asked our friends at Bike Effect to help us with the delivery, we had no idea that Steven Carre, co-owner and fit specialist, was going to offer Keishawn the pro treatment with a free fit session. For those that don’t know, Steven is a master fit technician who has studied virtually every style of bike fit theory and combines them with a state of the art fit studio that rivals and surpasses most Olympic training facilities.It was a great day with Keishawn and Bike Effect.To learn more about Bike Effect, visit them over at : bikeeffect.com#takethelead New bike day is the best day.

Noah Galvin on Stepping into Dear Evan Hansen’s Blue Polo & More

first_img from $89.00 I Dreamed a Dream…on the DLThough his family is chock full of performers (his sister is an actress, his brother is a musician and his cousins are performers as well), Galvin’s parents were surprised by his early professional ambition. “I sort of snuck behind their back. I secretly sang over the phone for an agent, who basically right then said, ‘There’s an audition for the tour of Les Miserables later this afternoon. Do you think you could make it?” A couple of weeks later, Galvin nabbed the role of Gavroche, which led to an “upheaval in our house; we had to figure out a way for me to go on tour. My parents both worked full-time, so we hired a 19-year-old guardian. We went on tour together for about nine months. As soon as I started working professionally, I knew I needed to keep doing it.”Feeling SheepishBefore he went on tour as a professional, Galvin was in a lot of school plays—and had his share of onstage mishaps. “The first real musical I remember doing was Charlotte’s Web. I played the sheep. My mom had run my lines with me. That was the thing that I was most nervous about. I remember reading the script moments before I went onstage, and I walked out with my script in my hand. Realizing it was in my hand, I threw it backstage. Then there was a moment in the show where there was this long, horrible pause in which someone was supposed to say a line. Guess who that someone was? Finally, it came to me, but it was a strong 30 seconds of silence before I spoke up.”Getting Real for the CameraGalvin credits his persistence to landing his breakout TV credit on The Real O’Neals. Without much experience in front of the camera, his learning was hands-on. “I was a capable actor, but I didn’t know what I was doing on camera. I went out to L.A. and tested for a pilot that I didn’t get. The next year, the same exact thing happened. The next year, I auditioned for two pilots. After I bombed the first one, I had 20 minutes to drive across L.A. to ABC to audition for The Real O’Neals. I showed up very harried, feeling downtrodden. They basically sat me down and told me they thought I was really right for the role, but I just had no idea how to be on camera. Our director Todd Holland worked with me for about 35 minutes, and we made the perfect little test tape. My response to the role was, ‘This is mine.’ And then it was.” Noah Galvin(Photos: Emilio Madrid-Kuser) Much Love, MomWhile Galvin shares that he does not struggle with anxieties like Evan Hansen, he relates to his character’s relationship with his mother. “My parents divorced when I was 13. Unlike Evan, I have a lovely relationship with my father, but both my siblings had left for college at this point, so it was just me and my mom. We have this intense bond because we had to learn how to be roommates and friends and cohorts and comrades and sometimes therapists and everything else.”The “Getaway” Golden TrioOf course, we had to ask Galvin about that epic ’70s music video starring himself, Ben Platt and Dear Evan Hansen-bound Hello, Dolly! standout Taylor Trensch. “That was totally Ben’s creative child. He took the ‘passing of the polo,’ if you will and spiced it up with some vintage Gucci.”Five, Six, Seven, Sob!Galvin participated in workshops [as Jared] for Dear Evan Hansen, but he truly set his sights on the “perfect musical theater role” when he saw his pal Ben Platt perform at a matinee during the musical’s premiere in Washington, D.C. “It is truly a showcase of any actor’s abilities. You get to be funny. You get to make people laugh. You get to make people cry. You get to sing for the heavens. You get to do it all. Although, I wish there was a tap number in there, so I could really show off my skills.” Star Files Dear Evan Hansen Noah Galvin View Comments Unlike the uncertain character of Evan Hansen, Noah Galvin does have a map. Fresh off two seasons of scene-stealing on ABC’s The Real O’Neals, the 23-year-old actor is about to take center stage in the titular role of the Tony-winning smash Dear Evan Hansen beginning on November 21, replacing Tony winner Ben Platt. Though this marks Galvin’s Broadway debut, the Westchester native has been a stage and screen regular since childhood. While he will be sobbing and saaanging as socially awkward Evan Hansen eight times a week at the Music Box Theatre, Galvin is a refreshingly self-assured star on the rise. We caught up with the young performer before his big Broadway bow to talk about his early ambition and the one thing a dream role like Evan Hansen is missing.

Tim and Leslie Nulty to lead new natural gas distribution venture

first_imgEnergtek Inc (OTCBB: EGTK), a leader in hi-tech natural gas solutions and Adsorbed Natural Gas (ANG) technology, announced today that two high profile experienced managers, Dr Timothy Nulty and Leslie Nulty have joined forces with Energtek. Towards its commercial activities in the USA, Energtek has established a fully-owned subsidiary, Energtek USAInc. In turn, Energtek USA has created Energtek North Country Inc for activities in the Vermont Region and Northeast United States. The company serves natural gas customers not directly on a gas pipeline by trucking compressed natural gas to the customer or localized distribution facility. Tim Nulty is still listed as the CEO of ValleyNet in White River Junction and was the General Manager of Burlington Telecom until stepping down in 2007.”We are pleased to confirm that Energtek USA has set up a new company, Energtek North Country Inc, which will focus on the unique conditions in the Northeastern region of the United States, an area with very limited access to natural gas distribution pipelines,” said CEO Energtek Yoav Krill.Lev Zaidenberg, who founded Energtek Inc. back in 2007, and until recently as President of Energtek, Inc., will now serve as Chairman of the Board of Energtek USA, and will continue to be in charge of Energtek’s worldwide business development and international operations.  Timothy Nulty was nominated as CEO of Energtek North Country Inc. He has held senior positions at the DoE, the US Senate and then the US House of Representatives, as well as having served as a Senior Telecom Project Officer for the World Bank and International Finance Corporation.Leslie Nulty was appointed CFO of Energtek North Country Inc. She is an expert financial analyst, and served as General Manager at a large food co-op, controller for a Venture Capital company and Treasurer for a large Business Association.”Dr Timothy and Leslie Nulty are proven and successful business managers, with vast international experience as well as an in-depth knowledge and local expertise in Vermont, having managed telecom companies in the region,” said Zaidenberg. “We are honored to have appointed them as managers of our new subsidiary, Energtek North Country Inc.”Nulty said: “I am excited at the opportunity that Leslie and I will have to work with Energtek.  We expect to begin servicing customers in early 2015.  In New England and New York State there are many areas that are not served by gas pipelines and have little prospects of becoming so in the foreseeable future.  Energtek’s solutions, based on proprietary technologies, will enable us to deliver gas economically by mobile “mother daughter stations”, reducing user costs and pollution from conventional fuels.  Over time we will be expanding pursuant to a long-term business plan whose terminal value is well over one billion dollars ($1,000,000,000).Now is the time for our new company to roll up its sleeves and get to work, in order to provide the fine citizens of Vermont and the neighboring states with increased energy efficiency and environmentally-friendly solutions.”RELATED STORIES:More on Tim Nulty’s Resignation from Burlington Telecom(link is external)ECFiber connects 600th customer | Vermont Business MagazineAbout Energtek    Energtek develops and applies innovative mobile transportation solutions for industrial consumers and fleets of small vehicles.  Energtek operates subsidiaries in North America, Europe and Asia.  To learn more about Energtek, visit the newly revamped website: http://www.energtek.com(link is external)SOURCE NEW YORK, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Energtek Inc.

Rules for lawyer websites are now being fast-tracked

first_imgRules for lawyer websites are now being fast-tracked May 1, 2010 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News Rules for lawyer websites are now being fast-tracked Senior EditorThe Florida Supreme Court has asked The Florida Bar to submit its guidelines for lawyers’ websites as an amendment to Bar Rule 4-7.6 (Computer Accessed Communications), which addresses websites and becomes effective on July 1.The Bar, in response, has begun a fast-track process to prepare the rule amendment.It’s the latest step in a multi-year effort to set guidelines for lawyers on what they can say on their websites.The Bar, after an extensive study of advertising rules in 2004-05, took an extra year to review the intricacies surrounding law firm websites. The Bar ultimately recommended to the court that the home page be subject to all the substantive advertising rules, and that the remainder of lawyer websites be subject to the substantive advertising rules with three exceptions: prohibitions against statements characterizing the quality of legal services, past results, and testimonials. In the latter two instances, the Bar recommended disclaimers. Websites would remain exempt from the filing requirement.The court rejected that approach. In a ruling issued last November, the court said that websites are subject to the general advertising rules contained in Bar Rule 4-7.2. That rule bans lawyers from using testimonials, referring to past results, or characterizing the quality of their legal services — all commonly done on law firm websites. In other words, the opinion had the potential to make almost every attorney and law firm website in violation of Bar advertising rules.The Board of Governors, noting the short time between the issuance of the opinion and the January 1, 2010, effective date, first asked the court to delay the effective date until July 1, 2010, and the court agreed.The Bar then asked the Standing Committee on Advertising to provide guidance for Bar members on complying with the rules.The committee responded by suggesting a bifurcation of attorney websites. Those sections that contain testimonials, refer to past results, or characterize the quality of legal services, or otherwise don’t comply with Rule 4-7.2, would not be generally accessible to random w eb surfers. Access would require the viewer to click a button or take another affirmative step after viewing a disclaimer.In a letter to the Supreme Court explaining the Bar’s actions, Bar Executive Director John F. Harkness, Jr., wrote, “The Standing Committee on Advertising determined that an appropriate disclaimer, before giving a user access to website pages that do not comply with the lawyer advertising rules, must include what type of information will be viewed, that the information is not reviewed or approved by The Florida Bar, and if past results or testimonials are provided, that a prospective client’s facts and circumstances may differ from the matter in which results or testimonials are provided, whether all results or testimonials of all clients are provided, that the results or experience of the client giving the testimonial are not necessarily representative, and that every case is different and each client’s case must be evaluated and handled on its own merits.”The guidelines require that the viewer acknowledge viewing the disclaimer or alternatively provide the lawyer or law firm sponsoring the site with contact information that includes an acknowledgement that the viewer wants to receive additional information about the lawyer or law firm.The court responded to Harkness’ letter with an order on March 31 and said while it liked the procedure, it wanted to see it included in the advertising rules rather than just as a policy.“The court rejects the [advertising] committee’s use of the guidelines as an interpretation of the current rules. . . , ” the court said in its order to the Bar. “Although an amendment to the rule is required, the court agrees with the committee that its described guidelines are consistent with the court’s suggested approach.. . . Accordingly, we direct The Florida Bar to submit proposed rule changes consistent with the approach described within the guidelines.” ( See Notice, Here . )Chief Justice Peggy Quince dissented from the order, without an explanation.Bar Ethics Counsel Elizabeth Tarbert said the Bar hopes to file a proposed rule with the court around June 1.last_img read more
