David Leavitt, President and Founder of A1 Assets, Inc. and Refresh Computers, is a lifetime resident of the Orlando, Florida area. David built his businesses from the ground up and the success of Refresh Computers is a reflection of hard work and his morals, with the very simple motto – “treat others as you would want to be treated.” David instills this in all of his employees and asks them to work with all customers in this same manner. David has been in the computing and electronics business for over 40 years, and jokingly refers to himself as ‘just another old nerd’.


David Leavitt graduated from Winter Park High School and attended the University of Central Florida. After a brief stint in College, David enlisted in the US Air Force to support his country and to further his education in electronics. After 4 years in the military, David sought and gained employment with Nortel Networks, where he worked as a technician, engineer, manager, and eventually in a senior management position. In his senior management role, David was responsible for over 400 employees nationwide, on projects worth several hundred million dollars, to include customers such as AT&T, Sun Microsystems, HP, and others.

 

Andre Klass is also a life-long resident of Central Florida, who started his career in the computer technology field while still in high school, and has been in the field for over 10 years. He obtained his A+ certification at age 16, and got his first job at a local flight simulation company right after his 17th birthday. At the age of 20, Andre joined the retail crew at the Refresh Computers store in Longwood, where he worked his way up to become the company's lead sales & technical associate, responsible for customer service, public presentations, social media and marketing, and website and e-commerce administration. In addition to working with technology, Andre's other passions include aviation, photography and volunteering in the community. Andre joined David Leavitt as the full-time co-host of Tech Talk in 2014.

  • Lucky's Market will close all but ONE of its stores in Florida. It was confirmed by the Sun Sentinel Tuesday morning.  All five stores in Central Florida will close including the Colonial Landing shop that opened 8 months ago.  The only location to survive will be the store in Melbourne.  After an unfavorable portfolio review last year, Kroger pulled out its investment.  Lucky’s hasn’t made a public statement yet but the closures would effect 2,500 employees.
  • A California mother of two died during childbirth last week while acting as a surrogate for another family, according to multiple reports. Community members came together to support the family of Michelle Reaves after she died Thursday, according to KGTV and a GoFundMe campaign set up to support Reaves’ family. Jamie Herwehe, a close family friend of Reaves', launched the GoFundMe campaign last week, with donations slated to go toward covering funeral costs and supporting Reaves’ husband and children, CNN reported. “For those of you who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Michelle, she will always be known for the love she had for her family,” Herwehe wrote on the campaign page. “Michelle has the best, most sarcastic, funny personality and always had you laughing.” Herwehe said Reaves was acting for the second time as a surrogate for a family when 'one complication led to the next.' She died during childbirth, but Herwehe said the baby she was carrying survived. 'I can’t even begin to imagine what her husband Chris and her two babies are going through,' Herwehe wrote. 'No one deserves to lose their mama so young or the mother of their children.' Reaves was survived by her husband and their children, Gage and Monroe, Herwehe said.

According to USA Today, 16-year-old Selena Not Afraid was found dead near an Interstate 90 rest area Monday morning, weeks after she disappeared while traveling from Billings to Hardin after a New Year’s Eve party.

Washington Insider

  • Facing opposition from within Republican ranks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell presented an amended rules proposal on Tuesday to govern the start of President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, most significantly giving more time for House prosecutors and the President's lawyers to make their opening arguments. The changes came after a lunch meeting of GOP Senators, where Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and others expressed reservations about the idea of forcing each side to cram 24 hours of opening arguments into just two days. 'She and others raised concerns about the 24 hrs of opening statements in 2 days,' a spokeswoman for Collins told reporters. Along with that change, McConnell backed off a provision which would not allow evidence from the House impeachment investigation to be put in the record without a vote of the Senate. The changes were made as House prosecutors and the President's legal team made their first extended statements of the Trump impeachment trial. 'Why should this trial be any different than any other trial? The short answer is, it shouldn't,' said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), as he made the case that the Senate rules would not pass muster in a regular courtroom. 'This idea that we should ignore what has taken place over the last three years is outrageous,' said Jay Sekulow, the President's personal attorney, who joined White House Counsel Pat Cipollone in arguing against the impeachment charges. 'It's very difficult to sit there and listen to Mr. Schiff tell the tale that he just told,' Cipollone said, in one of the first direct jabs of the impeachment trial. “A partisan impeachment is like stealing an election,” Cipollone added. While there were GOP differences on the rules package offered by Republican leaders, GOP Senators stuck together on the first substantive vote of the impeachment trial, defeating an effort by Democrats to subpoena certain materials from the White House. The first vote was 53-47 to block an amendment offered by the Democratic Leader, Sen. Schumer.  It was straight along party lines. A second vote along party lines blocked a call by Democrats to subpoena documents from the State Department. Opening arguments are expected to begin on Wednesday.
