    The Spill

    Did you know that letterpress printing has been around since around 1440, when Johannes Gutenberg developed a machine that would lock movable letters into place and use a press to transfer ink from the letters onto a sheet of paper? This technique revolutionized the way we share information by allowing books and other documents to be created much more quickly. Since 1440, this technology has evolved beyond this labor intensive method, but we wanted to highlight a little bit more of its history and why some people have still decided to use it today. taken from: Wikimedia How Letterpress Works…

Air is escaping from the black cap which is screwed on top of the gauge with pin holes all around it. It only happens when the needle is about 5mm from the green area and the air stops escaping when it's below that point. Compressor is always on.

    Greetings, Does anyone have a magic formula for getting files that were put together in InDesign CS5.5 to Illustrator CS5 and still have them somewhat editable? Scenario: Label printer wants Illustrator files. I don't know why they can't use InDesign files. That would solve everything. Text in Illustrator sucks, so I use InDesign. However, if I export to EPS or PDF (same difference I guess) and open in Illustrator it ends up with a billion layers with every spec of everything in the universe on it's own layer. I don't want a discussion on how Illustrator is not a PDF editor. I know that. I…

From that, the group has compiled a list of the 187 best companies--firms such as Apple, Samsung, and BMW--into a kind of elite (and much smaller) Fortune 500 for environmentally-conscious companies, dubbed the Climate Performance Leadership Index (CPLI), and it says those companies are outperforming the rest of the market. The CPLI returned 37.5% from 2010-2014 to investors, compared with 34.2% for the Bloomberg World Index.

  • Hazardous chemicals in your pizza box? Petition asks FDA to ban them

    20 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    U.S. manufacturers stopped using a hazardous chemical in pizza boxes and other food wrappers three years ago -- but it may still be seeping into your takeout food. That's because foreign companies can still use perchlorate and perfluorocarboxylates (PFCs) -- which can cause permanent brain damage in infants -- in paper products that are imported into the United States. On Thursday, a group of consumer and health groups filed a food additive petition with the Food and Drug Administration, asking that the agency pass regulations that would close this loophole and clearly ban the chemicals in…

    Welcome back to adventures in scanning. This time we will be looking at scanning using Server Message Block (SMB). The SMB protocol is an application layer network protocol mainly used to provide shared access to files, printers and other communication on a network. SMB works through a client server approach, which means that the client makes specific requests and the server responds accordingly. It allows access to remotely stored files as well as other resources, including printers. The client is able to read, create, update files, and communicate with a program running on a server setup to…

    The Chancellor Goes Forth The Government had a cunning plan and the Chancellor with great relish outlined his new proposals on pensions reform at the Budget earlier this year. Part of the cunning plan, said the Chancellor in his budget speech, was providing free independent “advice” to members of defined contribution pension schemes as they approached retirement. It turned out that the Chancellor didn’t actually mean “advice” which of course has to be tailored to an individual’s needs and be given by someone qualified to give it. He meant “guidance”, a far more woolly phrase…

But unfortunately for small-business owners, there has yet to be invented an elixir that magically cuts operating costs across the board without adversely affecting a company’s ability to deliver the same level of high-quality product or service offerings. But in today’s age of ubiquitous, free online tools, there are numerous opportunities for every small-business to reduce its marketing expenditures by performing more promotional activities in-house.

    Recently I turned 50.  The whole year prior, I spent planning a big party in which I could ring in a new half-century in style. I pondered all the things I could do.  I booked a caterer, thought about the guest list and who might attend.  Then with 6 months to go, started having friends put it on their calendar. I felt ready to announce to the world I was turning the big 5-0.  But then a little more than a week before my birthday, I realized the entire world of big data had already been anticipating me turning half a century old. A week before the big event I received my invitation to…

    “To get your customer to grant you access, it’s imperative that you convey all your information in a series of 20- to 30-second ‘touches’ (via phone, email, and direct mail).” - Jill Konrath, author of SNAP Selling The methods of reaching your targeted audience today are numerous: email, direct mail, web, apps, the list goes on. And when it comes down to it, email isn’t necessarily better than direct mail, nor is Facebook better than LinkedIn.  The key to a successful marketing strategy is not in choosing one channel over another, but garnering a mix of channels to gain a…

    A new report from app analytics company App Annie focuses on "connected apps," or apps that require separate hardware to run — which includes everything from printers with Wi-Fi to the latest Android Wear smartwatches.

App Annie's report looked at 30 apps that require an external piece of hardware to work and inferred the number of downloads on both the Apple App Store and Google Play they received this past August.

    The purchase by the Department of Agriculture was just one of a series of overspends by US government departments in the last year.The Fiscal Times reported on what it calls a reckless federal shopping spree in the US, which saw government departments spend around $50 billion during the financial year, with September 30 being the final day of the year on which agencies "use it or lose it", spending the remainder of the cash given to them before the Treasury takes the rest back. The agencies are said to spend all of their allocated funds because "Congress may not allocate as much the following…

In the process of labeling products, it appears there are people who are a little too creative, about to quit their job, possibly tipsy or just plain full of themselves.  We take product identification and warning labels very seriously but still pause to chuckle at what seems absurd, crazy, over the top… and maybe a little stupid.  The warning labels below may make you snicker and look more closely at your labels:
