LinkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign Addresses Photoshop Unicode Related Bug

Zevrix Solutions announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.6, a maintenance update to company’s workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer lets users automatically scale and crop linked images to their InDesign dimensions at specified target resolution, convert image formats and colors, apply sharpening, and more. The new version addressed a Photoshop bug that prevents third party tools from opening images whose names contain URL encoded characters in Unicode percent escape format.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.6, a maintenance update to its image processing automation plug-in for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and helps users reduce the size of InDesign links, save prepress costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

The new version addresses a Photoshop bug that prevents AppleScript from opening files with URL encoded names. As a result, LinkOptimizer cannot process images whose names contain UTF encoded characters in the so called Unicode percent escape format. With the new update LinkOptimizer will identify the issue during processing and inform theuser of the exact nature of the problem rather than only displaying a generic error message from Photoshop. The user will be advised to remove the Unicode codes from the file name in order to process the affected images.

“LinkOptimizer has changed my life and saved me days and days of work as a retoucher for an international quarterly magazine,” says Steve Krason of Chicago based SK Design Group. “It’s a lifesaver”.

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

• Optimize dozens of InDesign files
• Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
• Change their resolution to 300 dpi
Convert RGB images to CMYK
Resave JPEGs as TIFF
• Run a Photoshop action on each image

As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.13 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2018.

Fulham White Paper Describes How Digital Lighting Controls Overcomes Lack of Dimming Standards

Migration to Digital Standards Promises to Simplify Lighting Installation, Add Wireless Communications, and Extend Controls to Other Building Systems.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has released a new white paper that discusses the limitations surrounding 0-10V luminaire dimming and the benefits of adopting open digital standards to promote universal lighting compatibility. The white paper, entitled “Next-Gen Digital Dimming and the Shortcomings of 0-10V,” describes the pitfalls of trying to retrofit luminaires with incompatible dimming curves and how the emergence of new digital control and communications platforms extends lighting controls beyond simple dimming.

To date, there has been no universal standard for 0-10V dimming in LED luminaires. As a result, LED drivers from different vendors have different dimming characteristics; a 5V signal could result in a dimming profile of 50, 80, or 30 percent, depending on the manufacturer. Similarly, at 0V some LED drivers will turn power off, while others may dim from 1 or 10 percent. Non-standard dimming drivers also can overload a lighting system, tripping a circuit breaker or creating a catastrophic driver failure.

Lighting control systems such as DALI, Bluetooth mesh, and Zigbee address this lack of common dimming standards by taking advantage of embedded software support in LED components. Intelligent LED drivers can be grouped and programmed to accommodate changes and incompatibilities in dimming profiles, including making changes and upgrades automatically. In addition, polarity is not an issue with digital control systems, which makes digital luminaires easier to wire and scale.

More importantly, where most dimming protocols are unidirectional, issuing instructions with no means to verify response, digital control systems provide two-way communications to show the status and health of each switch, sensor, and luminaire. In addition, lighting manufacturers are finding that digital LED controls lend themselves to wireless connectivity, eliminating the need for extensive retrofits or additional control wiring.

“We released this white paper to show the industry what we see coming in digital lighting and open control standards,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Digital controls not only make it easier to mix and match lighting systems, but ensures faster and more trouble-free installations.”

Fulham has already demonstrated interoperability of digital control systems over a Bluetooth mesh wireless infrastructure, as well as delivering power and control to luminaires using Power over Ethernet (PoE). New programmable, digital LED components that are Bluetooth-mesh and PoE compatible will become commercially available later this year.

Artificial Intelligence Keynote Speaker Edgar Perez Hails UK Steps to Best US and China on Tech Race

Throughout history, there have been moments when the progress of technology has taken great steps forward, when a combination of the right tools, a capacity for innovation, and sparks of ingenuity lead to breakthroughs that transform how we live our lives. Executives in Kuala Lumpur, London, Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Mexico City and Hong Kong will acquire a comprehensive understanding of these technology trends and how they will impact business and society with Artificial Intelligence author and keynote speaker Edgar Perez.

New York City, NY, USA — How we produce and process information is critical to innovation, and our methods of recording and communicating information have themselves undergone great leaps. At the same time, tools for processing and making sense of large quantities of data have developed exponentially, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) representing the latest leap. In the same way that Gutenberg’s press ushered in a new era of growth, data-driven technologies such as AI will underpin our future prosperity.

The huge global opportunity AI presents is why the UK government identified AI and data as one of their Grand Challenges, in which the country could lead the world for years to come. The recently-announced Sector Deal is the first commitment from government and industry to realize this technology’s potential, outlining a package of up to £1 billion of support for the sector.

The Sector Deal sets out actions to promote the adoption and use of AI in the UK, and delivers on the recommendations of the independent AI review, ‘Growing the AI industry in the UK’, led by Professor Dame Wendy Hall and Jérôme Pesenti1 (currently at Facebook). Their review engaged widely with businesses, academia, investors and other stakeholders on ways to boost the UK’s emerging AI sector at home and across the world. It sets out proposals to improve the institutions that support AI in the United Kingdom, to build a skilled workforce, and to stimulate access to data, collectively the lifeblood of any AI business.

If there are critical areas in technology today that will greatly impact businesses for years to come, these are Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. If there are examples of countries rising to the AI challenge, the UK effort tops the list of geographies announcing a nationwide proposal to lead the industry globally, says renowned AI instructor Edgar Perez (http://www.mredgarperez.com), presenter of programs in these subjects in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, London, Mexico City and Hong Kong:

1. Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence Workshop:

• Mumbai (July 19-20)
• Abu Dhabi (July 24-25)
• Hong Kong (August 15-16)
• Mexico City (August 22-23)

2. Quantum Computing Workshop:

• Abu Dhabi (July 26-27)
• London (August 6-7)
• Singapore (August 10-11)
• Hong Kong (August 17-18)
• Mexico City (August 24-25)

These programs go beyond technology, incorporating both short and long-term business impact; these courses allow participants to immediately capture the relevance and potential of these cutting-edge developments for their organizations.

The Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders focuses on practical applications of artificial intelligence for businesses using TensorFlow, the most widely-used deep learning framework from Google. Deep learning is already impacting every part of business today; in fact, PwC has warned that automation could replace 38% of all American jobs by 2030. Deep learning will continue to be a rich source of insights from ever-growing data sets being evaluated by powerful algorithms, enabling companies to make better decisions.

The Quantum Computing Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will show CEOs how to learn to harness the opportunities unveiled by Quantum Computing, how to identify challenges and how to prepare their organizations for what the future holds. Powerful quantum computers will model all 19,000+ proteins in the human genome and simulate how new drugs can cure everything from the common cold to cancer.

According to the Family Caregiver Alliance there are more than 8.4 million American seniors that receive long-term care services annually, and 27 million seniors will need some form of care by 2050. As a result, the home care is currently a $93.4 billion industry growing at an annual rate of 3.4 percent. Since more than 90 percent of aging Americans are opting for home health care, so the need for independent home care providers continues to grow at a dramatic pace. The Home Care Bible was written specifically for nurses, therapists, and non-medical professionals seeking to become their own boss and establish their own senior care practice.

“After working with so many home care providers over the years I have seen all the mistakes as well as a variety of successes,” said Smith-Pratt. “To be a winner in home care you need to adopt the right mindset and know where to look for potential pitfalls that could sink your business. Although I originally wrote The Home Care Bible to help ABS franchise partners, the book contains valuable lessons for anyone considering entering the home senior care field.”

In The Home Care Bible, Smith-Pratt shares her tips and techniques to home senior care business owners in how to avoid costly mistakes and build a successful business. It also illustrates how to build a care business with a culture of integrity and dedication to the Spirit of Service.

The Home Care Bible is available in paperback from Amazon or online at http://liasmith.net.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin

Appointment in Prague – a Mattie McGary + Winston Churchill World War II Adventure, by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin, features British secret agent Mattie McGary in her own solo adventure against the Nazi empire in wartime Prague.

Cleveland, OH, USA — In the novella, Appointment in Prague, one woman, a British secret agent, sets out to single-handedly send to hell the most evil Nazi alive-SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the head of the SD, the intelligence wing of the SS and the architect of “The Final Solution” that will send millions of European Jews to their doom.

Winston Churchill in October 1941 authorizes the assassination of Heydrich by the British SOE-the ‘Special Operations Executive’ created by Churchill to ‘set Europe ablaze’. He is unaware that the entire operation has been conceived and is being run by his Scottish goddaughter, the former Pulitzer Prize-winning Hearst photojournalist Mattie McGary who joined the SOE at his suggestion after he became Prime Minister in May 1940.

Mattie has a history with Heydrich dating back to 1933 and a personal score to settle. In September 1941, when the man known variously as ‘The Blond Beast’ and ‘The Man With the Iron Heart’-that last coming from Adolf Hitler himself-is appointed Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, the remnants left of Czechoslovakia, Mattie decides-now that he is no longer safely within Germany’s borders-that he must die. She persuades her boss at SOE to secure Churchill’s consent. She then recruits and trains several Czech partisans for the task and has them parachuted into Czechoslovakia in December 1941.

An increasingly impatient Mattie waits in London for word that her agents have killed the Blond Beast. By May 1942, Heydrich still lives and Mattie is furious. The mother of six-year-old twins, Mattie decides-without telling her godfather or her American husband, the #2 man in the London station of the American OSS-to parachute into Czechoslovakia herself and “light a fire under their timid Czech bums”. Which she does, but her agents botch the job and Heydrich is only wounded in the attempt. The doctors sent from Berlin by Hitler to care for him believe the Man With the Iron Heart will recover. Mattie is determined this won’t happen.

On the fly, Mattie conceives a new plan to kill Heydrich herself. With forged papers and other help from the highest-placed SOE asset in Nazi Germany-a one-time lover-Mattie decides to covertly enter Prague’s Bulovka Hospital and finish the job. After that, all she has to do is flee Prague into Germany and from there to neutral Switzerland and home to London. What Mattie doesn’t know is that Walter Schellenberg, Heydrich’s protégé and the head of Foreign Intelligence for the SD, has been watching her every move and has plans to stop her before she can reach Switzerland and safety.

Michael McMenamin is the co-author with his son Patrick of the award-winning 1930s era historical novels featuring Winston Churchill and his fictional Scottish goddaughter, the adventure-seeking Hearst photojournalist Mattie McGary. The first five novels in the series-The DeValera Deception, The Parsifal Pursuit, The Gemini Agenda, The Berghof Betrayal and The Silver Mosaic-received a total of 15 literary awards. He is currently at work with his daughter Kathleen McMenamin on the sixth Mattie and Winston historical novel, The Liebold Protocol, to be published in fall 2018.

Kathleen, the other half of the father-daughter writing team, has been editing her father’s writing for longer than she cares to remember. She is the co-author with her sister Kelly of the critically acclaimed Organize Your Way: Simple Strategies for Every Personality [Sterling, 2017]. Kathleen is an honors graduate of Sarah Lawrence College with an MFA in Creative Writing from New York University.
