Minuteman Press Franchise in Swindon, England Reopens Doors After Flooding and Fire

Minuteman Press International Inc

Minuteman Press in Swindon, England has reopened its physical location at 19-21 Newport Street (Ground Floor – Newport House). After suffering water damage from flooding in July of 2021 and electrical fire damage in October of 2021, owner James Beckwith and his team continued to operate and serve clients as repairs were being made. James shares, “The community has been fantastic, we officially remained open the whole time taking orders from the website and emails, as well as keeping our phone lines open. We have had nothing but positive comments and folks telling us they are so happy we are back open. Some customers have commented that though they had to go elsewhere for a time, the quality of the print and the quality of the service just didn’t compare to what they received when working with us.” During this critical time and leading to the reopening of their facility, James was grateful to be part of the Minuteman Press franchise family, who stepped in and provided crucial support in many areas. James says, “Mark Jones (UK South Regional VP) and Richard Myers (local field rep) and Duncan Diesel (at MPIHQ) have been invaluable to us. I routinely spoke with Duncan on equipment decisions when ours was being replaced as well as marketing ideas and technical help with Minuteman Press FLEX software and the new website. Richard has been out to see us during the time we had no premises to work up a plan once we were back open and he has been out since opening to assist with production processes and marketing ideas. Mark Jones was always at the end of the phone if we needed advice on anything. He was very key in us making the decision to stay in our current premises when we were investigating moving locations.” Being part of the Minuteman Press system also enabled James to receive vital support from choice vendors like Xerox. James states, “I want to particularly give a shout out to Xerox. They were amazing throughout the entire process. The Xerox kit was always the most expensive shop item and there were lots of negotiations on price to replace the two Versants that were damaged. They ultimately gave us the opportunity to acquire the Xerox Iridesse and offline booklet maker to match the requirements from the two previous Versants while keeping the insurance company happy on cost. Xerox also gave me near free reign of their Uxbridge HQ where I was allowed to run one particular job on their presses every month for six or seven months.” Today, with the repairs finished, new equipment in place and new signage installed, James is excited about the upgrades that have been made to the business. He says, “Our offices and production area have been refurbished, and we can now provide more services than before.” James continues, “We now have totally new kit, and because it is so versatile, we can offer more options than before, with an even faster turnaround. The new Xerox Iridesse is a full production press allowing us more and faster capabilities as well as improved image quality over our previous presses.” He adds, “Even our booklet-making capacity has improved. Whereas before, making a large number of booklets could take several hours, we can now produce up to 3,000 booklets in an hour.” James further explains the benefits of the new equipment installed at Minuteman Press in Swindon: “The Iridesse is absolutely amazing. The image quality is second to none. The job that I would run at Xerox HQ was a monthly magazine run for a local village. 1050 copies, ranging from 20 – 32 pages each month. On our Versants, the job would take 6 – 8 hours. Now the entire job takes us about 2 hours!” We were able to update our Duplo 615 to the 618 and that piece of kit is a dream. Touch screen, easy to configure and very dependable. We replaced our SureColour T5200 with the same model, however now we have the large format scanner which was one area we were sorely lacking. Customers would routinely come in with paper plans looking to get copies or scans and we would have to turn them away, now we can handle the full job for them. We replaced our HP Latex 330 with the Latex 335 that has the Print & Cut feature. We couldn’t be happier with the decision. We are still getting our feet wet with the Print & Cut, but so far we are producing work on all the new kit.” Minuteman Press in Swindon also plans to re-add dye sublimation and add a self-service area for walk-in customers who need a simple print job. James says, “This is really ideal if someone wants a return label printed, for example. We always offered this kind of service for customers, but soon they will be able to do it on a DIY basis.” James concludes, “We are happy to be back in our new and improved facility, and we are excited to continue to welcome back our clients. We are so thankful for them and all of the help we’ve received from our community and MPIHQ, and now we are ready to serve our clients better than ever before.” For more information about Minuteman Press in Swindon, visit https://minuteman.com/uk/locations/england/swindon/ To learn more about #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities and to see Minuteman Press franchise reviews, visit https://minutemanpressfranchise.co.uk or https://minutemanpressfranchise.com Contact Details Chris Biscuiti +1 631-249-1370 cbiscuiti@mpihq.com Company Website https://minutemanpressfranchise.com

Has This Company ‘Sekured’ Safe Messaging In The Wild West Of User Data Protection?

Sekur Private Data Ltd

Concern has reportedly grown in recent years about insecure messaging and data harvesting of private electronic activity. This has seemingly been countered by a steady shift toward data encryption as one solution, but widespread online protection remains a relatively new, underdeveloped field. Nevertheless, text messaging, multimedia messaging and app-to-app messaging have exploded in the past couple of decades. On a daily basis, 27 billion texts, 60 billion WhatsApp messages and 319 billion emails are sent worldwide. All of these messages constitute data, which is precious and personal, as reflected in the saying, “Data is the new oil,” coined by mathematician Clive Humby. Unfortunately, many companies might be unscrupulous about harvesting and selling users’ private data. Numerous scandals cropped up in recent years, which indicates that users’ data is not safe. For example, the Cambridge Analytica breach in 2018, which involved Meta Platforms Inc. ’s (NASDAQ: META) Facebook platform allowing data to be used for political advertising; LinkedIn having a major data breach, with all its users’ data posted to the dark web; and users en masse ditching WhatsApp in 2021 over secure messaging concerns. In response to these events, alternative messaging platforms have popped up in the past few years. Prominent among these are Signal, Telegram and Threema. These platforms remain almost exclusively focused on messaging, possibly leaving the field open for a company to produce a more comprehensive, self-sufficient system that replicates the data storage and communication offerings of mainstream companies but on a secure and encrypted platform. The Platform Inviting Communication Expansion? Sekur Private Data Ltd. (OTCQX: SWISF) is building an ecosystem it says is based on protecting privacy while maximizing efficient use — the Switzerland-hosted company uses a proprietary, non-open source, military-grade encryption service that runs off Swiss International Standard for Organization-certified data centers that house Sekur’s private servers. Using its own servers means the system avoids any main cloud service, provided by companies like Alphabet Inc. 's (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Google and Microsoft Corp. ’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) Azure, which can reportedly be more vulnerable to hacking and data breaches. Sekur’s comprehensive Communications platform goes beyond messaging. It includes messaging, chat-by-invite, letting Sekur users message non-Sekur users and includes secure instant messaging, group creation, audio recordings, encrypted email with proprietary SekurSend feature and a 100Gb storage for its SekurMail solution. Sekur’s Data and document management suite includes secure email, document storage, disaster recovery and encrypted password management. The company reports that unlimited storage is available for Sekur messages, and all data is securely backed up multiple times in multiple locations in Switzerland. The plethora of social media apps can be overwhelming and may discourage people from using obscure messaging apps. But Sekur says its secure and private ecosystem can communicate with users outside of its platform through its recently developed Chat-By-Invites function. Chat-By-Invite uses email or text messaging to invite a user who is not on Sekur to message privately and securely via the Sekur platform without using the app or purchasing the service. After the conversation, the Sekur user has the ability to destroy the messages at both ends of the communication and wipe them from the server, protecting the integrity of the secure system. Another advantage of the Sekur platform is that it does not require users to give their phone numbers to register, reducing dramatically the risk of hacks and creating a more private experience for senders and recipients. This function is also available for emails with SekurSend. Sekur’s Chat-By-Invite and SekurSend initiatives are seen as important because they provide a cohesive platform with the flexibility to reach beyond itself while data privacy is maintained. Sekur Chat-By-Invite has facilitated conversations in over 61 countries covering a population of over 3.4 billion, and the company says it will continue to expand to more countries as a global messaging service. “We are excited to have released Chat-By-Invite via SMS,” Sekur Private Data CEO Alain Ghiai said. “This milestone puts us closer to offering a unique package of secure and private communications to individuals, businesses and governments looking to protect their communications without having to divulge their phone numbers, without data mining and without forcing the recipient to also download the same application. “We look forward to continuing to offer true data privacy to all individuals and their businesses and protect their intellectual property and their privacy, from data miners and malicious hackers.” To learn more about Sekur Private Data Ltd., visit its website. Sekur Private Data Ltd. is a Cybersecurity and Internet privacy provider of Swiss hosted solutions for secure communications and secure data management. The Company distributes a suite of secure cloud-based storage, disaster recovery, document management, encrypted e-mails, and secure communication tools.

When it comes to packing those lunches, Siri suggests switching things up and asking the kids what they want to eat.

To help parents with lunches, Siri has created lunchbox ideas to add into the monthly rotation that are budget-friendly, well-balanced, and delicious enough that kids look forward to eating them each day. The lunchbox ideas call for simple staples and Juicy Juice 100% juice – an easy choice for mom and kids with a variety of flavors, no added sugar, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial sweeteners. Here’s a taste of Siri’s kid-friendly lunches that can be prepped the night before to move through mornings with ease: PB&J Roll-ups+ Pretzels + Grapes + Juicy Juice 100% Juice, Fruit Punch Cheesy Egg Bites + Cherry Tomatoes + Tortilla Chips + Juicy Juice 100% Juice, Grape Cheese & Salami Kabob + Crackers + Cucumbers + Yogurt + Juicy Juice 100% Juice, Berry Juicy Juice is also giving parents the chance to win money for back-to-school supplies and groceries to make Siri’s lunchbox ideas. Each week for four weeks, one grand prize winner will win a $1,000 gift card and 10 others will win a $100 gift card. Juicy Juice will share a weekly post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter asking followers to answer a question about their back-to-school moments. To enter, parents must follow @JuicyJuiceUSA, either post a photo or comment on Juice Juice’s weekly post in response to the prompt and include the following hashtags: #SIRIouslyRealBTS and #Sweepstakes. Parents can go to JuicyJuice.com/backtoschool to download and print the lunchbox calendar and learn more about the SIRIously Real Back-to-School Sweepstakes. About Siri Daly: Siri Daly is quickly leaving her mark on the entertainment-lifestyle landscape. She is the founder of Siriously Delicious, a popular food blog that chronicles real-life cooking and a former Food Contributor on the TODAY show where she still regularly appears as a guest chef for cooking segments. In addition to Siri’s primary Instagram, Siriously Delicious, she also has a comedic Instagram account, Real Moms Wear Grey where she shares a personal take on being a mom. Siri’s first cookbook, Siriously Delicious: 100 Nutritious (and Not So Nutritious) Recipes for the Real Home Cook was published by Time, Inc. books in 2018.

WiMi Built the Next Generation of XR to Enter the Business Market As the Metaverse Continues to Grow

WiMi Hologram Cloud Inc.

The Metaverse, a digitized virtual reality realm, is gaining popularity. The buzzword “Metaverse” was coined by sci-fi author Neal Stephenson in his novel Snow Crash in 1992. Its popularity is due to Facebook's decision to rename "Meta." The Metaverse is Not Far Away What is the Metaverse? We may picture it as a new interconnected platform. Ordinary video game players can only see what they are playing through a 2D flat screen on a mobile phone or computer. In contrast, the Metaverse can create a 3D space where players can access an immersive gaming experience. This is the charm of the Metaverse: people can switch between virtual and reality seamlessly. So how can we enter the Metaverse space? Major tech companies are now actively developing their ultimate solution, which is XR. XR is the next-generation mobile computing platform that combines real and virtual worlds, including VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality), and MR (Mixed Reality). It is the key to the Metaverse, which can create immersive experiences. While XR has been applied in gaming and socializing for decades, it remained insipid until the technological advances and social changes brought about by the epidemic, which promoted the development of the Metaverse and inspired tens of billions of dollars of investment. It also made people believe that the Metaverse is the future and the next battlefield of the Internet. The XR market has been booming with great potential in recent years. The global VR industry size is expected to grow at an average annual rate of about 54% during the five years from 2020-2024, with VR growing at about 45% and AR growing at about 66%, both with a market share of RMB 240 billion in 2024, according to International Data Corporation (IDC). WiMi’s XR Opens Gate to the Metaverse It is sensible that the Metaverse will bring a new era for humanity in the coming years. WiMi Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ: WIMI) is devoting itself to developing Metaverse technology and has become an active player in this field. It is understood that the core team of WiMi has been engaged in the XR field for years. WiMi also established the Metaverse division to seize the golden opportunity and to design and produce industry benchmark XR products and experiences in software, content, system, SDK tools, and hardware for customers. After years of development, WiMi has become a leading XR builder in the industry and has established a relatively complete technology R&D system, content production and reserve system, and commercialization system. It has a robust XR technology research and development ecosystem. It has built an XR value industry chain with great potential for expansion. WiMi focuses on professional fields in Metaverse applications such as home entertainment, light field cinema, performing arts system, commercial publishing system, advertising display system, etc. In addition, WiMi has established a comprehensive XR content library compared to its peers. With 195 patents on technologies related to image processing and display, model input/output, 3D modeling, and 325 software copyrights, WiMi has produced over 4,600 high-quality, high-fidelity XR contents. In terms of the number of XR patents and software copyrights, WiMi is in the first tier of the industry. From the whole industry's perspective, XR technology commercialization has gone through the market education phase and gradually transitioned to the high-speed development period. Metaverse is a track with high market potential for WiMi. Based on the market trend and its experience, WiMi is firmly committed to a long-term development strategy and continues to improve brand awareness through the business market. WiMi is experienced in the market and can provide hardware and software solutions for the whole industry chain, empowering large enterprises and customers in the office, socializing, advertising, financing, and other fields, helping enterprises and customers reduce costs and increase efficiency. And next, WiMi will combine the advantages of 5G large bandwidth transmission, boost R&D and accumulate more service experience. Closing Remarks In 2022, the metaverse market is in full swing, with many tech companies scrambling to get in. Giants are entering the market, with Qualcomm launching a new generation of XR chips and Tencent setting up an XR division. More than 500 companies have reportedly joined the metaverse market. McKinsey believes the metaverse market will reach $5 trillion by 2030. This vast market share is unprecedented for all the major tech giants. About WIMI Hologram Cloud WiMi Hologram Cloud, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIMI), whose commercial operations began in 2015, is a holographic cloud comprehensive technical solution provider that focuses on professional areas including holographic AR automotive HUD software, 3D holographic pulse LiDAR, head-mounted light field holographic equipment, holographic semiconductor, holographic cloud software, holographic car navigation and others.

Without Proper IT Protection, It's Just A Matter Of Time Before SMBs Get Hacked

Sekur Private Data Ltd

For several years now, many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have been under the assumption that if they just move their files and data to the cloud, they will be protected. The hope is that cloud-based services like Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) Web Services, Microsoft Corp.’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) Azure and IBM (NYSE: IBM) Cloud Services will provide a layer of protection for sensitive information and peace of mind. But even cloud software providers can be subject to hackers and data breaches. Unfortunately, most SMBs are unaware their remote workers are creating even more opportunities by using unsecured systems to conduct business, further compromising whatever data protection they use. SMBs diligent in using the right tools and processes to protect their data from attacks such as hacking and theft are providing a shield against cyber intrusion and phishing scams. In doing so, they protect sensitive data such as email addresses, phone numbers, medical information, bank and credit card numbers and, in some cases, private medical information. New research shows that many are missing the mark in this area. SMBs Are A Huge Hacking Target According to a benchmark study by Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO), SMBs account for more than 40% of all data breaches, with more than six out of 10 reporting at least one cyber attack in the past year resulting in at least eight hours of business shutdowns. Thirty percent of small businesses consider phishing attacks to be the most significant cyber threat, with 1 in 5 having no endpoint security and more than half existing without any information technology (IT) security staff in house. As SMBs struggle to find cost-effective solutions to the issue, the stress of protecting data is also affecting their workflow. A new survey from CNBC and SurveyMonkey found that nearly 4 in 10 small-business owners say they are very or somewhat concerned their business will be the victim of a cyber attack within the next 12 months. There Are New Data Protection Tools Now Available One company leaping to provide inexpensive and peace-of-mind offerings for SMBs is Swiss-hosted privacy and cybersecurity company Sekur Private Data Ltd. (OTCQB: SWISF), which focuses on privacy and security communications and data management solutions. The company developed SekurMail and SekurMessenger as part of a privacy and security bundle of email, messaging and file transfer in one application featuring the company’s latest SekurSend and Chat-by-Invite technology. That technology includes proprietary anti-phishing and privacy features in SekurSend®, which allows users to send an email to any other recipient — whether they have Sekur or not — in complete privacy and security. The email never leaves Sekur’s encrypted email servers in Switzerland. The recipient can then click on the notification and reply in the same manner using SekurReply® without registering for a Sekur account. SekurMessenger comes with a proprietary feature and technology called "Chat-By-Invites". This feature allows a SekurMessenger user ("SM user") invite a non-SM user, or a group of non-SM users, to chat in a fully private and secure way, without the recipient ever having to register to SekurMessenger or download the app. At the end of the chat, the initiator of the conversation can remotely terminate the conversation and all traces of the conversation are deleted from all users, including the recipient. The invite can be sent via Email or SMS. Sekur has already enabled invites in 61 countries, covering over 3.40 billion people, and will add more countries as Sekur expands globally. The target sectors are numerous, including but not limited to real estate, legal, finance, medical, government, energy, manufacturing. Sekur has big plans to reach SMBs with solutions for the remainder of 2022 and 2023, including: Developing new email and digital marketing and search-engine optimization (SEO) targeting over 3 million SMBs out of the 30 million in the U.S. with a conversion goal of up to 10% (up to 300,000 SMBs and up to 1 million to 1.5 million users). The development and use of additional marketing tools on several types of media, including a significant launch in its SekurMail product over all digital media and electronic billboards in New York City to complement its planned television ads and new interviews. The product launch of SekurVPN, SekurVoice and SekurPro, a video conferencing tool targeting C-level executives. The company offers its products globally through its websites, approved wholesalers and distributors, and telecommunications operators.

Spiceology

DonorsTrust Givers Recommended $126 Million in First Seven Months of 2022

Donors Trust

The DonorsTrust community of givers during the first seven months of 2022 recommended more than $126 million to nearly 2,000 unique nationwide charities, defying historical rates of inflation and ongoing market volatility. While this 11% increase in YTD charitable dollars is significant, the total number of grant requests is up a whopping 49% compared to the same time period last year, suggesting the DonorsTrust client community is spreading more dollars among more institutions. As DonorsTrust President and CEO Lawson Bader says, “The sheer volume of grant requests so far from our community of givers is a reflection of the historic number of new accounts opened with DonorsTrust during 2021 and 2022. “What’s more, the pace at which our donors are meeting charitable needs is evidence of an engaged, serious community of givers that understands nonprofits need more financial assistance to make ends meet during these turbulent economic times.” Grant-making accelerates year-over-year despite market pressures In 2021, DonorsTrust paid out nearly $190 million to charities nationwide and—if giving continues to keep pace with the first half of 2022—it will end the year easily exceeding last year’s record-breaking total. DonorsTrust givers are stepping up to meet needs even though the S&P 500 has declined 20% YTD, the index’s worst six months in more than 50 years, according to CNBC. Other major stock indexes like the Dow and the Nasdaq were down 15% and 30%, respectively, in the first half of 2022. Donor-advised funds, also known as charitable-giving accounts, offer some shelter from the turbulent markets, however, as the charitable tool enables givers to claim an immediate tax deduction for each irrevocable donation made to their donor-advised fund, also known as a charitable-giving account. Donors respond to war in Ukraine, policy challenges at home During the first half of 2022—in partnership with the Atlas Network, a global network of think tanks that work to secure economic and personal freedom for all individuals—DonorsTrust’s donors responded to the Ukrainian crisis by raising more than $2.5 million and counting for life-saving supplies. DonorsTrust Vice President Peter Lipsett earlier this year interviewed Dr. Tom Palmer, executive vice president for international programs at Atlas Network, about the relief missions Palmer personally conducted, delivering supplies from a Polish base and coordinating travel for those fleeing Ukraine. “[Ukrainians] are committed, not merely to repelling [Russian] aggression, but to doing it because they want a free society. They want to live with freedom of speech and free markets and the ability to live your own life as you want and not as someone commands you to live,” says Palmer. In addition to funding relief efforts in Ukraine, clients’ giving in the first seven months of the year focused heavily on grant-making to policy organizations that preserve and protect civil liberties. More than $85 million in the first seven months of 2022 went to policy-focused charities, including State Policy Network, the Foundation for Government Accountability and the Constitutional Defense Fund. ### About DonorsTrust DonorsTrust is a mission-focused donor-advised-fund provider that primarily serves conservative and libertarian givers. Established in 1999 as a 501(c)(3) public charity, DonorsTrust is a community of donors devoted to creating a better future for all. DonorsTrust supports charities it believes protect constitutional liberties and strengthens civil society through private institutions and initiatives. Since its inception, DonorsTrust has granted nearly $2 billion to more than 4,000 charities in the arts and sciences, education, public policy, religion, and social services.
