To raise money for the national and Southern California USO programs to support our military and their family.
Harley-Davidson had become an official corporate sponsor of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and Oliver Shokouh- the young owner of a fledgling Harley-Davidson dealership in Glendale decided to put together a fund raising event and hold it back behind his little shop. Despite such exciting attractions as a dunk tank, a softball toss and target shooting, the first annual Biker’s Carnival only raised $1500 for MDA. Not exactly an auspicious beginning.
Still, Oliver was determined. Word would get out, he thought, and he would work a little harder and the second annual Biker’s Carnival would be bigger and better…

When buying second hand goods, it’s important to take the time to review some basic precautions, whether you’re getting items from a shop, a private seller, or online. You need to be aware of when a deal may be suspicious, while also knowing what your rights are and what options are available when dealing with Cash In Hand Pawnbrokers and other institutions. What, then, are some of the things that you should be focusing on when dealing with second hand goods?
- Primarily, you should be wary of any second hand goods that are intended to be used as safety devices; this means being careful about headgear, helmets, and child car seats, which tend to be one-use only items, and not recommended for second hand sale. While you may find that these items haven’t been used before, it’s difficult to really know, and you’re likely to be taking a risk if you buy second hand goods that don’t have a verifiable history.
- Moreover, you should check to see whether any tools or electronics that you buy second hand come with their original instructions; this can be crucial if you’re buying power tools that require certain safety procedures to be followed. You also need to ensure that second hand furniture still has a label that identifies items as being compliant with the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) Safety Regulations 1988. Buying from reputable pawnbrokers and other second hand dealers can reduce your risk of buying an unsafe item.
- It’s also important to be aware of your rights as a consumer when dealing in second hand items. You’re still covered by the Sale of Goods Act 1979, which means that you can contest how an item was promoted as being different from what you actually bought. You can also take advantage of a seven day cooling off period for goods, and credit card protection on losses. A good seller should put information about your rights in an easily accessible place.
- There are some exceptions, though, which mostly apply to buying goods at an auction. As well as following common sense in terms of not over-bidding on items that you’re unsure about, you need to remember that the Sale of Goods Act can be waived. An auctioneer will typically declare that an item is to be sold as seen, which if accepted by a buyer, represents a clearly stated level of risk. Some auction houses will provide an indemnity insurance policy, though, if you do have second thoughts about your purchase.When buying second hand items online, it’s crucial to be cautious about who you’re dealing with. Make sure that you’re not being asked to transfer money without guarantees of purchase, and that all information on tax is available if you’re importing something into the country. You should also be wary about disclosing bank details, and of knowing when a seller is reputable from their ratings and the quality of the goods being presented.

Basin 141 is the neighborhood Bar and Eatery that will make you want to change your zip code just to be closer to home! An old vibe with a new school flair
Basin 141 is a neighborhood watering hole conceived in the hearts and minds of brothers Dave and Joe Friedman. A Social House of sorts, developed to celebrate the cultural diversity, rich history, and the proud spirit of Los Angeles. Having spent most of their adult lives perfecting and fine-tuning their skills as managing bartenders in the Los Angeles area, it was only a matter of time before the duo would create a place they could call their own. To help reach their lofty goals they partnered up with two long time Montrose locals, Eric Steele and Nigel Burns, who helped propel Basin 141 from dream, to reality. Sharing the same vision, the Basin team developed an interior design that not only incorporates vintage materials and style, but also adds new age materials to create a warm inviting environment that will welcome its patrons with unparalleled distinctiveness.

This letter I just received from the founder of Media Temple.
Talks about GoDaddy acquiring Media Temple. It sounds like everything will stay the same. But if you are a customer of Media Temple and GoDaddy like I am it should mean good things.
I am proud to share some momentous news with you today. GoDaddy, the Internet’s largest platform for small businesses, has acquired (mt) Media Temple. We will continue operating as an independent and autonomous company and our mission will remain unchanged. However, new investments from GoDaddy will provide us the necessary resources to strengthen our focus on web professionals and will help accelerate our plans to expand internationally.
At Media Temple, we’ve always been on a mission to provide the highest quality service at the lowest possible price. When I co-founded the company in 1998, I saw an industry that wasn’t meeting the needs of web designers all that well. At one extreme, there was expensive and overly-complex dedicated hosting that required customers to over-build their solutions. At the other extreme, there was incredibly cheap “unlimited” hosting that was untrustworthy and lacked class and transparency. At neither end was there a company truly qualified to understand and partner with the creative community.
Thanks to incredible customers like you, our model worked out. We’ve doubled-down on designers and have created a new platform to help people push the outer limits of the web. Now with 225 employees, Media Temple serves 125,000 customers making up more than 1.5 million websites in over 100 countries. We are proud to be one of Los Angeles’ original startups, repeatedly recognized as one of the best places to work in the city — and one of the fastest-growing companies in the world.
Personally, working with GoDaddy on the acquisition this year has been unexpected, yet incredibly rewarding. Led by new CEO Blake Irving, the GoDaddy leadership team, which now includes Media Temple’s President, Russell P. Reeder, is transforming the company with fresh thinking, new advertising, and an inspiring new strategy. It really is impressive, and so is their new mission: “Help small businesses easily start, confidently grow, and successfully run their online ventures.”
Though our customers have traditionally been very different, both companies have similar priorities of providing excellent service experiences. However, we also understand and respect the vast differences and needs of our respective customer bases. Hence, Media Temple will continue to run as an independent business and is not being integrated into GoDaddy. Our customers should not experience any changes to their service levels, pricing, or the expert support we are known for. We’re not moving our servers, and the phone number is not changing. We will remain in Los Angeles and will stay committed to being the most amazing hosting provider possible. In all seriousness, our mission to host great ideas feels like it’s just getting started!
I am confident that Media Temple has made the right decision and I know the company is only going to get better from here. Please see our website FAQ to understand this news even further. If you have any questions or comments, please let us know at [email protected].
Thank you so very much for your passion, your feedback, and your support over the years.
