The Nanaimo-Ladysmith School District hopes learning can happen with less wasted paper.

An environmental sustainability action plan, approved by the board in September, lists the development of a policy to reduce paper use as a goal. The school district enlisted the help of a Konica Minolta representative last spring to conduct an investigation of the schools’ printing systems, and administrators were briefed on the results at the November works council meeting. .

The school district will purchase larger multifunction printers that scan, photocopy and print, according to Mark Walsh, SD68 secretary-treasurer.

He said many of the district’s printers were coming to their “useful end” and a staff report noted that across the district there were 382 single-function printers, which are less energy efficient and less economical due to the costs of ink and maintenance. Reducing to 278 printers and replacing current multifunction copiers with more efficient models would reduce the district’s monthly energy consumption by 371 kilowatt hours, which would come with lower monthly energy costs and reduced carbon emissions, according to the report.

Walsh said the district will install software to limit instances of “ghost printing” when staff members don’t actually retrieve their print jobs from the printer.

“That means individuals will have to stand up and they will have to type in their number or the print job will never be released,” he said.

On average, 1.5 million black-and-white pages and 44,000 color pages are printed each month in schools across the district, the report said. The software is estimated to reduce black and white pages printed by 21% and color pages by 47%.

Trustee Tom Rokeby, a former teacher at John Barsby High School, expressed concern that the transition away from paper highlights a “digital divide” in the district.

“I noticed as a teacher…when we moved from paper to online report cards, we lost a lot of families and it’s not easy for a family to navigate a new system,” he said. -he declares. “It’s not always easy for them to ask for help. I often had families coming to parent-teacher interviews who hadn’t seen the report card yet and it was uncomfortable for them, so hopefully we can make sure that still doesn’t happen.

Walsh said the district will not completely remove old printers.

“Where these single-use clothes [printers] are needed, like say there’s a disabled person who doesn’t have that mobility or [where it is] very difficult to access the printing machines available, we will of course adapt to that and so this number that we are talking about … may well be a little higher than what we propose, ”he said.

There will be consultations to address concerns and opportunities for the district to receive feedback, the report notes.

The social media video platform, TikTok, can be overwhelming when you start. Many people who post on the platform aspire to become an influencer with a ton of followers. But, it’s hard to do.

There are many factors that go into being successful on TikTok. You need to post regularly (even multiple times a day), you need to use the right hashtags, use trending audio, and more all play into the TikTok algorithm. This algorithm determines how many other users can see your videos on their For your page.

The only thing you can’t control is the connection with your video viewers. Either you connect on many levels with your viewers or you don’t.

One woman, from Owensboro, KY, has done everything she needs to do AND she has what it takes to attract and attract people to her. Her name is Jill, her name is “Mama Jill”. She is only 22 years old but has an old soul. I think that, of many things, is what makes her so special.

I’m a huge Mama Jill fan. She is authentic in her videos. In a video world of pretense, she’s the real deal.

Here is part of an email we received from a friend of Mama Jill.

…she’s about to hit a million followers! She gets recognized every time she goes out in town and even out of town! I’m so proud of her and I’ve never heard of anyone in Owensboro having such a following!! She has media that publishes about her and everything. She is really famous!

  • Designing a space for a hybrid work approach can be confusing given the hard-to-answer questions about how many seats and how much square footage is needed.
  • In an activity-based workplace (ABW), employees can choose from a variety of work settings throughout the day. This means space is more fluid, more shared, and fundamentally less dedicated.
  • The office of the future is one that provides this flexibility, provides more choice on the spot, and focuses on meeting employee needs in a way that leads to a happier, healthier workforce.

This article was written by Anna Grayhek and originally appeared on Work Design Magazine.

As we return to the office, a growing number of organizations have accepted the addition of remote working as a permanent part of their workplace strategy. Ironically, the concept of a fluid and agile workforce supported by technologies that allow us to “work anywhere” has been possible for over a decade, it took us a pandemic to fully embrace it. . Designing a space built around this hybrid work approach still proves confusing to most. Knowing how many seats and how much square footage will be needed are questions that many real estate professionals have tried to figure out.

But, before we discuss how to get there, let’s think about how we got here.

Learn from the past

Workplaces have traditionally been planned around the total number of desks and workstations needed based on current headcount and projected business growth. These spaces were usually assigned based on hierarchy, position, or title; giving little importance to how individuals were best suited to perform their jobs. But even before COVID, these types of organizational structures were increasingly seen as antiquated as people recognized the need for different environments depending on the task at hand. Individual attention, team collaboration, innovation, and engagement all require different environments with varying types of technology, acoustics, visual privacy, and even different postures and comforts.

And even before 2020, some organizations were already moving towards a new planning concept known as activity-based work. In an activity-based workplace (ABW), employees can choose from a variety of work settings throughout the day. This means space is more fluid, more shared, and fundamentally less dedicated. ABW also requires a more intentional approach to space management, including implementing booking tools and protocols to ensure spaces are available, clean, and quickly ready for use.

While most ABW strategies have always been confined to the confines of the physical workplace, the pandemic has, in effect, torn down those walls and expanded the workplace to include not just our homes, but third places like coffee shops, satellite offices and even our cars.

The transformative experience of the last two years has made us all aware of certain things: efficiency does not require sitting in a prescribed place, we do not need a physical presence to manage our staff, and most of us crave human connection. and the socialization we lost during the COVID-19 shutdown.

The hybrid work approach

So back to your New Desk.

If you want to create a space that offers diverse work setting choices, maximizes flexibility, has a varied capacity as staff come and go, and accommodates the needs for connection and socialization, it will likely be very different from the one you had before.

Hybrid work: it's not a revolution, it's a revelation
MBK by Hendy – credit Bilyana Dimitrova

With this new purpose comes new expectations for a space that not only meets the adaptive needs of the workplace, but after experiencing a time when we have all paused and reflected on what is important in life, focused also on the health and well-being of its workforce. This next-generation space is not only physically different, but may require new technologies as well as an integrated wellness program. Office design must take into account the resetting of priorities caused by the pandemic. According to the 2022 Work Trend Index, 53% of employees are more likely to prioritize health and wellness at work than before the pandemic.

54% of leaders are currently redesigning meeting spaces for hybrid working, or plan to do so in the coming year.

Virtual meetings with speakers and cameras have become commonplace and have permanently changed how often we are willing to endure the commute to meet in person. They have become an accepted medium of communication, including screen sharing and live editing, rather than tagging and emailing. This has created an increased demand for onsite “Zoom Rooms” when employees are working in the office, as this capability has become an expectation. Especially for organizations with a global footprint, working across multiple time zones. While many organizations have made the transition by acquiring the necessary hardware and software to make virtual meetings possible, leaders must also make the necessary cultural adjustments to normalize hybrid meetings for a mixed workforce.

In fact, 54% of leaders are currently redesigning meeting spaces for hybrid working, or plan to do so in the coming year.

We have also seen a significant change in the way people do their jobs. The adoption of digital work tools during COVID-19 has resulted in less paper printing, fewer copiers, fewer office supplies, and the near extinction of the filing cabinet.

Hybrid work: it's not a revolution, it's a revelation
SAP by Hendy – RMA Architecture Photography

Individual desks also look different, as the amount of storage for binders, paper and layout space needed on a desk has decreased significantly. Most of us now have very similar needs; two monitors, a laptop and a small notepad. This means that organizations can implement fewer standards with smaller footprints, which can increasingly be shared and add to their office flexibility in the future.

This reduction in square footage means we can now use the extra space to build other areas to support collaboration and innovation, such as the spaces in City Hall that help drive employee engagement. These spaces aren’t just about the niceties and perks that once drove recruitment for yesterday’s high-tech companies. They are really meant to build social capital and create a culture that keeps employees motivated and connected to the organization. Although employees may come for pay and benefits, they usually stay because they have a deep connection to an organization’s purpose, people, and culture.

As we remain in an environment of high demand for talent, employees can choose to work for organizations that offer increased flexibility in where and how they work. The office of the future is one that provides this flexibility, provides more choice on the spot, and focuses on meeting employee needs in a way that leads to a happier, healthier workforce.

Quick and Safe Moving explains the preparations needed before calling business movers in Farmington Hills MI https://canonprinterhelpdesk.com/quick-and-safe-moving-explains-the-preparations-needed-before-calling-business-movers-in-farmington-hills-mi/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 16:46:09 +0000 https://canonprinterhelpdesk.com/quick-and-safe-moving-explains-the-preparations-needed-before-calling-business-movers-in-farmington-hills-mi/ Farmington Hills, Mich. – Quick and Careful Moving, a company providing residential and commercial movers in Farmington Hills, MI, recently published a blog post that discusses the essential preparations needed before a company calls commercial movers.

Farmington Hills, Mich. –

Quick and Careful Moving, a company providing residential and commercial movers in Farmington Hills, MI, recently published a blog post that discusses the essential preparations needed before a company calls commercial movers. Certain preparations are necessary to ensure an efficient and hassle-free office move. Adam Crans, owner of Quick and Careful Moving, says, “Moving to upgraded business premises indicates that the business is thriving and that you have identified a space that matches the business needs. First, visit the building in the new office to assess its suitability for the items you want to install there. Examine the floor and walls to determine if you need painters, carpenters, and other experts before moving items. We advise you to partition off the area to arrange space for employees and office furniture before calling our team to move the items from your current location.

After preparing the new office for the move, the next thing to do is to identify the type of moving company that would be needed. It would be a good idea to interview a number of moving companies to find the one that best suits the needs of the business. For example, the moving company should have staff capable of handling electronic equipment, such as computers and photocopiers, as well as fragile glassware, if they are vital items in the office. Quick and Careful Moving has various transport vehicles and specialized cars that are suitable for safely transporting various types of items.

It is also necessary to prepare for the proper coordination of the move to ensure that the commercial movers will take care of each item. The person designated as the coordinator will ensure that a moving schedule is followed and will also serve as a contact person for the moving company. For larger companies, it may be appropriate to assign a move coordinator for each department to facilitate the moving process. It may also be a good idea to hold several meetings to prepare for the move.

And finally, it is also necessary to make the necessary changes to the elements used for business communications, such as business forms, letterheads and promotional materials to ensure that the new address is indicated. It is also important to ensure that the new contact details are listed on the company’s website to alert current and future customers. And vendors and technicians may also need to be notified of the new office address to ensure the continued smooth operation of the business.

Launched in 2013 in Grand Rapids, MI, Quick and Careful Moving offers professional moving services in various Michigan locations outside of Grand Rapids, such as Farmington Hills, Kalamazoo, and Bloomfield Hills. They have an extensive network of moving personnel across the United States and can help move to and from various locations including: Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Charlotte, North Carolina; Chicago, Ill.; Boston, Massachusetts; Dallas, TX; Denver, Colorado; Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis, IN; Jacksonville, Florida; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Memphis, TN; Las Vegas, Nevada; New York, NY; Oklahoma City, okay; Phoenix, Arizona; San Antonio, TX; Milwaukee, Wis.; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; San Jose, California; Seattle, WA; and San Diego, California. They offer local and long distance removals at reasonable rates which have earned them various accolades including the Super Service Award on Angie’s List twice in a five year period and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) . These services are provided by a team of fully licensed and insured professional movers with a combined experience of over 41 years. They are ready to help make the move as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Businesses in need of professional office moving service can visit the Fast and Safe Moving website or contact them by phone or email. Their office is open 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. On Saturdays, they are open only for moving services, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

October 24, 2022

John Alexander Atkins was born on March 19, 1944 in North Adelaide. Photography was in his genes, his father William running a racetrack photography business including processing facilities from 1936. His mother worked as a hand colorist in the business.
The early years were spent in the dunes of Somerton Park on horseback and adventure with friends. Around 1950, he was one of 800 patients admitted to Northfield Infectious Diseases Hospital with polio.

He went to work with his father at 14, leaving Adelaide Boys High School. At 16, John built a big Hartley cabin cruiser, just to prove to his father that he could. He photographed horse racing, trotting and greyhounds and began filming films at races to help the stewards. He was also involved in designing and implementing the now familiar photo-finish system to aid the judges.

He then filmed baseball, cycling and greyhounds, and photographed yearlings for the Blood Horse Breeders Association.

He was flown in to film the Melbourne Cup for the TV news. He photographed: Sabrina (an English glamor model); American Mouseketeer James Dodd; Queen Elizabeth; the Duke of Edinburgh; the Queen Mother and many South Australian Governors and Parliamentarians.

He has photographed for South Australian affluents, including the Kidman family, as well as Lindsay Park and the Hayse family. He was Ansett’s official photographer for many years.

In 1962, his mother, tired of hand-coloring all the photos, encouraged John to visit Kodak and learn how to use the new color processes. The first color print was delivered to John Haigh of Haigh Chocolates shortly thereafter (the family still has that original still). Atkins pioneered professional color processing services in South Africa. One of John’s first color processing clients was renowned aerial photographer D Darian Smith, whose reputation attracted many new clients. He started flying himself, piloting for Darian and eventually taking over his aerial photography business. Darian’s complete collection of aerial work was recently donated to the State Library by the Atkins family.

The laboratory grew rapidly and a dedicated city building at 262 Pirie Street was constructed in 1970. In 1981 John founded Gainsborough Studios with Norman Weedall to develop portrait photography in South Africa. Within a few years he had sold Gainsborough to Norman.

John and Marilyn at PMA in 1989.

John has created workshops and trade shows for professional photographers in South Africa and Vic with the aim of improving their photography and business skills, which greatly benefits the industry. In 1990 he bought Technicolor and over the next five years the two companies merged into one, “Atkins Technicolor”. John also launched a color copy center in his building at 25 Hutt Street in Adelaide using Meteor-Siegen direct-to-paper R3 copiers, a precursor to the digital copier.

At that time, the company employed more than 50 people. With the move to digital, the company fell to just 12 in the mid-2000s, but is now back to 35 in 2022.

In 1994 the horse racing photography business was sold to Terry and Hilary Hann, who still operate it today. In the late 1990s, John and his son Paul began developing digital printing services and pioneered many techniques for high quality digital output based on Kodak’s Pegasus LED digital-film hybrid printers. They have put a lot of effort into helping photographers to take digital shots and manage a digital workflow by holding workshops.

In 2007 John and Paul purchased Duckpond and merged staff and services into Atkins’ workshop at 89 Fullarton Road. John never officially retired until his departure in 2019, but Paul had taken on more responsibility since the early 2000s.

John was State Chairman of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) for 5 years and Territorial Vice President for Australia of the Photo Marketing Association International (PMA) and was a regular at their events in abroad and between states.
