Just Tell Me How It Works
I’ve recently published a book: Just Tell Me How It Works: Practical Help for Adults on All-Things-Digital which covers the entire digital landscape – computers, Internet, e-readers, iPads and tablets, televisions, DVRs and remotes, social networking and much, much more. In addition, I’ve launched a series of workshops designed to help people who are confused and overwhelmed by the onslaught of technology. My workshops have been held at the US Small Business Administration, Twentieth Century Fox, Kaiser Permanente, Employment Development Department (EDD), Right Management and others.I’m a Vietnam veteran and the business has been established as a Veteran-Owned Business. The reviews of the book have been extremely favorable; I’ve been featured on CBS2 – KCAL9 News and Fox; and my articles have been published on Fox News Online.
Bike Attack, a popular bike retailer in Santa Monica since 1999, opened a new Bike Shop purely for electric bikes “BIKE ATTACK ELECTRIC+”.
There were rumors for a while that Bike Attack Electric+ will be co-owned by a well-known figure from the film industry, but details were still kept secret. Until today when Bike Attack announced that their new business partner is film veteran Albert Cho, AD of Fast & Furious, Furious 7, Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. And Mrs. Smith just to name a few. Albert Cho is also a long time cyclist and good friend of Ericson Monsalud.
Bike Attack started doing business 1994 in Berlin, Germany in cooperation with the US Army. It developed into one of the most popular bicycle retailers in Berlin. In 1999 owner Ericson Monsalud opened a second branch in his home town Venice, California and in 2004 he and Andrew Smith opened their new store in Santa Monica on Main, just across the street from Urth Caffe and the rest is history. Bike Attack was one of the first retailers concentrating on electric bicycles in the US. “Our original Bike Attack on 2400 Main was getting too small to showcase all the different electric bikes on the market. We needed to find a place close by to concentrate just on electric bikes”, Monsalud says when we talked to him outside his original Bike Attack store. “The new store will concentrate mostly on electric bikes and some other alternative ways of transportation. We are fortunate to be able to lock in the best electric bike brands on the market: Stromer, Easy Motion, Felt, KTM and some very interesting newcomers. There are many electric bikes out there, we extensively tested all of them all and found only a few brands trustworthy and dependable. We fully stand behind all the electric bikes that we sell, we don’t fall for any short-lived gimmicks. For us count best quality, good service and high warranty”, he is adding. Electric bikes, or ebikes, are getting more and more popular and the trend is growing. If this isn’t enough: the futuristic design of the store is worth the visit.

New Visions Foundation
New Visions Foundation, founded in 1994 by Dr. Paul Cummins, is now the Coalition for Engaged Education.
“This change reflects the reality of who we are and what we’ve been doing over the past two decades,” said Cummins. “We have started schools, created and maintained programs that target at-risk youth, and worked to bring resources into severely threatened neighborhoods. But at the core, we are always working to connect youth with education that excites them and helps them build their respective futures based on that engagement.”
The Coalition for Engaged Education moniker will take effect immediately, and its programs, which have been running under different names for years, will be renamed as well. New Roads for New Visions, which works with juvenile-justice-involved youth, will now be known as CEE HOPE. The Coalition for Educational Opportunities, which works with foster youth from middle school through college and into careers, will be CEE FORWARD. Initiatives in Lennox, California, will be referred to as CEE LENNOX.
Engaged Education has been at the core of his educational career since 1970, when Dr. Cummins was the lead founder of the nationally renowned Crossroads School in Santa Monica. Cummins then founded New Visions Foundation, which in turn founded New Roads School.
Coalition for Engaged Education (ceeyouth.org) reflects the core value at the heart of all of its programs, the organization’s history of partnerships and collaboration, and its desire to be a national leader in progressive education.
Though the newly named Coalition has many programs, it has one vision at its core: to demonstrate to the world the power and effectiveness of
