Road Bike Action Magazine will expand to nine issues

Road Bike Action will have a fresh copy out to readers every 30 days starting with the 2009 Tour of California issue and then for the following six months, to be followed by three bi-monthly issues in the fall.

The magazine's expansion to nine issues in 2009 is a testament to Road Bike Action Magazine's commitment not only to its readers but also to its loyal advertisers. These additional issues will support the increase in demand for Road Bike Action Magazine and take advantage of the aggressive push that its new distributor, Curtis Circulation Company (the largest distributor of magazines in the U.S. and Canada), has put in place with Road Bike Action.

Road Bike Magazine's newsstand growth is exceeding all projections, and Curtis has just increased the number of newsstand outlets displaying RBA by another 25-percent, beginning with the January 2009 issue (which is printing this week). The magazine's paid subscriber base has exceeded 10,000 copies, with a very high percentage of renewal subscriptions.

New Economics Magazine Launched for Amateur Economists

Amateur Economists, a new online economics magazine for non-economists, published its first issue today on its website at http://www.amateureconomists.com/, according to editor and publisher, Anthony Luafalealo. The magazine's focus is on areas that economics has branched out to, including healthcare, law, politics, literature and art and science and technology.

The issue published today is the launching point for several blogs that will allow readers to interact with experts in the magazine's focus areas. In "The Dismal Side of Healthcare," a physician and nurse discuss the latest issues affecting healthcare economics; in "Fictionomics," an English professor explores the subject of economics in fiction and in "Economically Correct," a lawyer and law student look at the economics of laws.

The issue also explores the main reason U.S. economic indicators are no longer accurate, an overlooked consequence of the increasing cost of air travel and how the latest advances in prosthetics can be made widely available to those who need them.

"Economics is the study of choices," says Luafalealo. "The goal of Amateur Economists is to examine our world today through choices. How do current events affect the choices people make? How do those choices affect individuals and societies?"

One of the ways the magazine accomplishes that goal is through its writers' backgrounds, which are alluded to in its title. They include professors, businessmen, a physician, attorney, a few published authors and a financial analyst. While most are amateurs in economics, they are all experts in their fields.

The magazine is free to all readers and will publish new articles, blogs and book reviews on its site daily.

Online Women’s Travel Magazine Set to Launch

With thousands of visitors in the weeks leading up to its official launch on July 15th, Galavanting, the new online women's travel magazine, expects a large readership to enjoy its first monthly issue.

Editors-in-chief Kim Mance and Katy Quissell have recruited contributors who range from professional travel writers to professional women from all over the globe telling their stories and giving travel tips. But Quissell, 28, describes Galavanting as more than just a magazine. "We've worked hard to facilitate a bustling community and a unique space for women to come and connect with not only useful travel information, but with other women as well. The response so far has been overwhelming and women are really excited about it."

Mance, 29, says, "Women love to get advice from a trusted circle of girlfriends, so we've brought together women from all over the world to dish out the best they've got in that department. When it comes to travel, we found that most publications out there dumb things down, or seem to think women are only in search of glamorous day spas or the world's perfect facial. But we know there's a lot more to women than just stereotypes, and our articles and online video guides give a sense of the adventure and discovery women can experience during their travels."

Galavanting specializes in providing candid advice and engaging women's stories of discovery, self-discovery, and insider tips, as well as practical advice to keep travelers safe and culturally connected.

From visiting communities as a volunteer, to taking tours operated by non-profits benefiting local groups, the magazine strives to truly connect women to the communities they visit. Galavanting even goes so far as to put an emphasis on supporting women-owned businesses and highlighting the status of women and gender parity in destination governments.

Fun and adventurous travel destination videos hosted by Mance and Quissell will air online each month. Shooting for a first episode will start in Costa Rica this August.

A local group of technology professionals will launch a new magazine and Web site focusing on the information technology industry in Colorado. The publication, called Rocky Mountain TechLine, will debut in August and will be published monthly with a subscriber base of over 10,000 people.

According to Wolferman, Rocky Mountain TechLine will focus strictly on the people and activities of the Colorado IT community. Content will include news of IT-related businesses, profiles of prominent technology professionals, regular columns written by area experts on computer security and the local IT job market, and a complete calendar of events of interest to area technology workers.

"Rocky Mountain TechLine will also provide a much-needed advertising platform for providers of IT products and services," Wolferman said.

Nebgames Magazine Presents a Blueprint for Success

Nebgames Magazine is about a dream for the future of business in America and throughout the world. The magazine is dedicated to the idea if somebody can come up with a great idea they ought to be able to put that idea on the market and profit from it without undue red tape and expenses. The first issue goes through ideas for games, products, and software systems in a descriptional format. It then ends with a story and an article that attempt to make a case.

The case is that there should be a reporting database where any entrepreneur or other consumer of services can put his thoughts down about any business, law firm, organization, or anything else. Where possible, the database should also include an objective numerical review of these services and the option to report anonymously. That would help to create a more efficient market for services and force professionals to respond to the needs of their clients. An anonymous report would carry less weight than a report with a name behind it, but would protect the reporting party and encourage the free flow of information. At the end of the day everyone would be better off since service professionals ultimately depend on a productive economy to support their business models.
