Mobius Book Review: “The Liebold Protocol: A Mattie McGary and Winston Churchill 1930s Adventure” Written by Michael McMenamin and Kathleen McMenamin

“Fast-paced historical thriller with a strong female lead.” Reviewed by Kirsten from Mobius.

Shaker Heights, OH, USA — In another stunning Mattie McGary and Winston Churchill 1930s adventure novel, The Liebold Protocol, the McMenamins follow Mattie as she investigates and uncovers the details to a secret plot. This plot, facilitated by a German-American agent working for Henry Ford, saw Britain and Germany join forces during the Great War to keep the war going and profits flowing. Forced to once again travel to Nazi Germany in the summer of 1934 to further investigate this conspiracy, Mattie finds herself in the middle of a socialist ‘second revolution’ initiated by the SA Brown Shirts of Ernst Rohm. Hitler’s subsequent plan is to have the senior leadership of the Brown Shirts assassinated in a historical event known as ‘The Night of the Long Knives’. Mattie quickly finds her life in danger as her nemesis, Reinhard Heydrich, who is in charge of ‘The Night of the Long Knives’, has secretly added her name to the list of targets. Additionally, Henry Ford’s agent is eager to stop her from revealing the treasonous plot between Britain and the enemy by any means necessary.

Extremely well-researched and intriguing to the last page, The Liebold Protocol is a historical masterpiece that entices the reader to engage with the events of WWII Europe in a new way. While the alternating story line can be a little jarring at times, the novel’s organization allows the reader to follow the story from the point-of-views of various historical figures, including Adolf Hitler himself. The McMenamins find an incredible way to bring historical figures to life, making them seem as though they could be one of your friends or acquaintances. In addition to this feat, they once again present a strong, take-no-nonsense female heroine in Mattie McGary, a powerful nod to the women’s rights movements and leaders of the 1930s.

The Liebold Protocol is a captivating historical thriller that brings pre-WWII Europe to life.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions announces the release of BatchOutput PDF 2.2.37, a feature update to the company’s PDF printing automation solution for Mac. The only consumer-oriented product for automatic PDF printing on the Mac market, the software allows users to process PDF files from watched hot folders.

The issue with page auto rotation was caused by a bug introduced in a recent release of macOS.

BatchOutput PDF helps users eliminate countless repetitive tasks of opening PDF files and adjusting print settings manually by bypassing the print dialog. For example, users can create hot folders for color and black-and-white printers, specific paper sizes, duplex modes, various color profiles and other controls. The app offers the following key features:

Print PDFs automatically from watched hot folders.
-Create hot folders for different print settings.
-Detailed output history.
-Specify password for encrypted PDFs.

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century” (Part 1 to 4) by Charles A. Washington

Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century, (Part 1 to 4) by Charles A. Washington, sets a bold direction to managing equity in today’s society.

Cleveland, OH, USA — Charles A. Washington’s Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century, (Part 1 to 4) is not a partisan polemic or an academic tome. It is meant to be a “how- to” book. It is meant to be a democratic (small “d”) manifesto. It is meant to be a user’s manual for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. This book is meant to serve many purposes with regards to America.

The world is currently plagued by polarization, hyper-partisanship, authoritarianism, Majoritarian Democracy, Identity Politics, zero-sum politics and economics, inequality, racism, sexism, populism, Nativism, and dystopian societies. There is a desperate cry for solutions to these problems. This book is dedicated to solving these problems. This book identifies the extent of the problems as they are manifested in America. Then, this book takes the novel approach of operationalizing Justice as Fairness as the foundation of it uses the myriad works of John Rawls to devise solutions to these problems. Specifically, it uses Rawls’ “Justice as Fairness” as the foundation of a revolutionary set of solutions to these global problems.) This book is at once observational, diagnostic, prophylactic, and prognostic in its focus.

This book takes an observational, diagnostic, and prophylactic approach to solve the problems above. According to Rawls, “Justice as Fairness” is an exercise in “ideal (metaphysical) theory.” This book goes beyond the metaphysical, by rendering Justice as Fairness into the realm of “nonideal (real world) theory.” It does this by first deciphering and explaining Justice as Fairness’ challenging concepts using ideas borrowed from many disciplines. The book then moves on to develop a Justice as Fairness Logic Model which identifies the structures, mechanics, and dynamics of Justice as Fairness. Then, this book operationalizes Justice as Fairness through the creation of a revolutionary management system, “Equity Management,” and a companion license-fee-free web-based software system, “Plato.” Equity Management-Plato was developed using Justice as Fairness, Systems Theory, program evaluation techniques, the judicial principle “strict scrutiny,” and Environmental Scanning and Forecasting. Finally, this book outlines how Equity Management-Plato can be used to manage six public sector environments ultimately creating a level playing field and just, fair, and inclusive circumstances for all Americans.

Genre – John Rawls, Justice As Fairness, Social Contract, Equity Management-Plato, Representative Consensus Democracy; Justice, Fairness, Inclusion, Positive-Sum Politics And Economics, Reconciliation, E Pluribus Unum, New Coalition Of Conscious, Global Democracy Project, Saving Liberal Democracy, Better World, Realistic Utopias, Polarization, Hyper-Partisanship, Authoritarianism, Majoritarian Democracy, Identity Politics, Zero-Sum Politics And Economics, Inequality, Racism, Sexism, Populism, Nativism, Dystopian Societies

Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century ISBN 9781506906850, published by First Edition Design Publishing (http://www.firsteditiondesignpublishing.com), is available on-line wherever ebooks are sold.

Washington & Associates, Inc. (W&A) Launched a Strategic Plan Designed to Help Save Liberal Democracy, Unify Peoples, and Resist Authoritarianism Worldwide

W&A is a “startup” whose mission is to help save the liberal world order by reimagining and reinventing democracy.

Solon, OH, USA — W&A, a former holding company that is transforming into a “virtual startup’ geared to implementing a strategic plan and creating an international movement oriented to saving liberal democracy, unifying peoples, and resisting authoritarianism worldwide, had its official launch of the strategic plan.

Worldwide, tottering democracies coupled with “unfettered capitalism” are in crisis largely because their rhetoric does not match their reality. Rather than being the guarantors of opportunity, freedoms, equality, justice, fairness, and inclusion they have proven to be architects of oligarchy, kleptocracy, corruption, racial, gender, religious, class, and representational inequality, hyper-partisanship, polarization, identity politics, and zero-sum politics and economics. Authoritarians are taking advantage of these vulnerabilities by engaging in campaigns designed to subvert democratic processes, “weaponize” democracy’s (and capitalism’s) vulnerabilities and thereby destroy the liberal world order.

W&A has responded to these challenges by developing a universally applicable strategic plan designed to save liberal democracy, unify peoples, and resist authoritarianism and nationalism worldwide. The plan is contained in a recently published book entitled, Ensuring Justice, Fairness, and Inclusion in America: Managing Equity in the 21st Century, written by its President, Dr. Charles A. Washington, and in a series of five (5) white papers and promotional gear. The book and the strategic plan mark the first ever attempt to fully operationalize John B. Rawls’ seminal concept, “Justice as Fairness.” The strategic plan details a revolutionary (Rawlsian) management system called “Equity Management,” and a web-based software system called the “Plato Management Information System,” as solutions to this crisis.

Democracy’s problems are multi-faceted, and the solution must be as well. Saving democracy requires that it be reimagined and reinvented. Further, democracy must be saved in America first if it is to be saved at all. In response to this crisis, newspaper correspondents, think tanks, individual scholars, major universities (Harvard University, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Pennsylvania), etc. have begun examining the crisis of liberal democracy and capitalism seeking ways to save them. These early efforts have no viable solutions to offer to date. W&A’s “Rawlsian solutions” call for establishing new social contracts in tottering democracies with emphasis on the promotion of representative consensus democracy, justice, fairness, and inclusion. The solutions that W&A is offering are the first and only real-world, comprehensive, practical solutions designed to save liberal democracy, unify peoples and resist authoritarianism worldwide (and by extension save capitalism) that can actually work.

Pursuant to its mission (“creating one vision and empowering one future”), W&A is soliciting all like-minded countries, governments, corporations, organizations, and individuals who are concerned about the current state of democracy and capitalism in America and around the world and who want to do something about it, to heed this clarion call. Explore our website. Download and read the white papers. Buy and read the book. Buy the gear from our flagship store on our website or from our standalone satellite store and display it proudly. Sign up (organizations and individuals) and join the movement. Help us make the changes we all want. W&A will commit a substantial portion of the profits from the sale of the book and the gear to jump-start the implementation of the strategic plan.

About Washington & Associates, Inc.
Washington & Associates, Inc. is an S Corporation domiciled in Ohio. Its mission is to “create one vision” (“E Pluribus Unum”) and to “empower one future” (stable and legitimate liberal democracies worldwide).

Gotransverse’s New Premier Reporting Delivers Data Directly to Third-Party Reporting Tools for Faster, Data-driven Decision Making

New direct cloud data access solution integrates billing and revenue data with multiple data sets for comprehensive analytics and reporting in one location.

Austin, TX, USA — Gotransverse (http://www.gotransverse.com), a leading provider of enterprise quote-to-cash solutions, today announced the release of Premier Reporting, a new offering that provides direct access to Gotransverse usage, billing, and receivables data for use with other data sets and reporting platforms. With Premier Reporting, Gotransverse customers can integrate CRM, CPQ, and ERP data and generate custom reports using Tableau, Microsoft Power BI, Qlik Sense, or any preferred analytics, reporting, and visualization tool.

“Many companies are using a common set of reporting tools to manage operations. With Premier Reporting, we have now made those reporting tools even more valuable since users now can get a comprehensive picture of operations, including billing and revenue reporting in a single dashboard,” said James Messer, founder and CEO of Gotransverse. “By consolidating data and making the output available in any format we can deliver more precise analytics and improve data-driven decision making.”

Premier Reporting was developed to provide reporting and analytics capabilities beyond Gotransverse’s Standard and Interactive Reports. Rather than having to export Gotransverse billing and revenue data to create custom reports, Premier Reporting provides direct access to data via a Snowflake cloud data lake. With Premier Reporting users can generate faster, comprehensive reports across various business systems and work processes. Data can be sent directly to a company data repository so everything is stored in one location, or customers can license a data lake from Gotransverse to handle data for customized analytics and reporting. Data delivered using Premier Reporting allows you to aggregate data and business intelligence in a single set of reports for a comprehensive business perspective.

Gotransverse is offering Premier Reporting as two licensing options. Gotransverse can provide both Premier Reporting and a Snowflake data lake as a complete package or customers can set up their own Snowflake cloud system and add Gotransverse data.

About Gotransverse

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “The Famous Miller and Smith Detective Agency” by Rachel Joel

The Famous Miller and Smith Detective Agency, by Rachel Joel, takes us deep into a mystery alongside the delightful antics of our pair of pre-teen detectives.

Port Orchard, WA, USA — Rachel Joel’s The Famous Miller and Smith Detective Agency starts of with the quirky relationship of Jenny and Dan and quickly snowballs into a fast-paced who-dun-nit they absolutely must solve to save their loved ones as well as themselves.

I decided to buy this book after a friend recommended it to me. I was surprised and delighted with what I found. The author writes with intelligence, zest and enthusiastic charm. I’m looking forward to reading this book with my kids. I found out that the author is actually very young (a teenager?) and to be honest I was a skeptical about what I would find… and yet I’m not surprised she’s won so many writing awards — this is an up and coming author we need to keep on our radar! ~Sierra November – Amazon Books

Jenny and Dan become detectives for fun, their first case being a recent murder. Soon enough, the two are involved over their heads in finding out who did it as things become more serious than ever. Will they find the killer before he/she strikes again? Will they figure out whom to trust? Can their friendship stand the test? And, most importantly, will they come out alive enough to tell the tale?

Author Rachel Joel took to writing stories at the early age of 8. She loves to read adventure books and write action-filled stories. She wrote this book during her free time in sixth grade, publishing it a year later. Rachel has won several awards (such as an award in the Duke TIP writing contest conducted by Duke University, several times in the PTA Reflections contests, and the President’s Award for Educational Excellence) before reaching the seventh grade. She is a member of National Junior Honor Society.

T5 Facilities Management Reports Dramatic Growth for Data Center Services in 2018

T5 Data Centers’ Managed Services Group Adds 11 Data Center Customers in 8 Markets.

Atlanta, GA, USA — T5 Facilities Management (T5FM) had a banner year in 2018, adding 11 data centers in eight U.S. markets to their customer portfolio. T5FM, a division of T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale enterprise computing environments, also substantially expanded its staff to meet the needs of new customers, which include Fortune 500 and Fortune 50 companies.

Formed in 2014, T5FM provides mission-critical data center management and operations services, including remote hands, property and asset management, consulting, and training. T5FM was initially created to provide turnkey data centers services for T5 Data Center customers, but has been rapidly expanding to support third-party, mission-critical data center operations across the United States and Europe. T5FM ended 2018 on a high note with the addition of new customers in retail, enterprise computing, scientific computing, and mission-critical data services.

“We have seen continued growth over the past five years as leaders in various vertical markets continue to come to us looking for best-of-breed data center management services,” said Aaron Wangenheim, COO T5 Data Centers. “We continue to prove our capabilities in the way we manage T5’s data centers, which have a track record for reliability unsurpassed in the industry. We also received the Uptime Institute’s Continuous Uptime Award for uninterrupted service for T5’s data centers. That’s why respected market leaders continue to seek out T5FM for top tier support services.”

As part of its 2018 success, T5FM has expanded its team by 20 percent. In a job market where experienced IT staff is difficult to find, T5FM continues to attract top talent. Unlike other, more diversified competitors, T5FM is dedicated solely to data center operations management, so T5FM staff have an opportunity to hone their data center expertise in order to advance within the company.

“We believe we have a distinct advantage because we focus solely on managing mission-critical data centers as if they were our own,” said Wangenheim. “While other companies include general building management and other services, we are solely dedicated to data center maintenance and performance.”

T5FM continues to expand its customer portfolio. The group is already developing strategies to support T5@Ireland, the latest T5 data center, and anticipates signing more European customers in the coming year.

Charles Paddock Zoo Adds Solar Energy System

The solar energy system was donated and installed last summer by local solar installer, Solarponics.

Atascadero, CA, USA — The Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero adds solar energy system as part of their ongoing conservation mission. They join other zoo’s including; Cincinnati Zoo, Toledo Zoo, Knoxville Zoo, Saint Louis Zoo, Oakland Zoo, and San Diego Zoo, who have made a similar move to renewable energy.

The solar energy system was donated and installed last summer by local solar installer, Solarponics. The starter solar energy system produces about 5% of the zoo’s total energy demand and will save the zoo more than $75,000 over the life of the system. The ultimate goal is to install a solar array large enough to supply 100% of the zoo’s energy needs, saving hundred’s of thousands of dollars, savings that will go directly to the conservation and care of the zoo’s residents.

“We are excited about the future of our Zoo, adding solar, and upgrading our facilities to better manage the animal collection and enhance the experience for our zoo visitors,” said Alan Baker, zoo executive director. “We are dedicated to the conservation of local and exotic species in everything we do, including our entire energy and environmental footprint.”

Globally, the burning of fossil fuels releases carbon and other pollutants into the air, which directly contribute to climate change. It is these changes to our climate that are destroying critical wildlife habitat, causing habitat ranges to shift, increasing incidence of pests and invasive species, and decreasing availability of food and water. A failure to take decisive action now to reduce carbon pollution will affect one-third of all wildlife species facing increased risk of extinction within the next century.

The good news is the zoo is taking action to advance clean energy solutions that will protect wildlife and reduce their environmental impact.

“It was a great fit for us to be able to donate the starter system to the zoo. The donation supports our local community, builds solar awareness, and fits with the zoo’s conservation goals”, said Kristian Emrich, Solarponics Vice President.

Visitors are invited to Party For The Planet on Saturday, April 13 to check out the new solar energy system on the roof of the zoo’s gift shop, and learn about conservation programs happening at the zoo and throughout the central coast. Doors open at 10:00 AM.

About The Charles Paddock Zoo
The Charles Paddock Zoo was established in 1955 by Charles Paddock, a county parks ranger, who nursed animals back to health. Today the zoo is home to hundreds of local and exotic species from around the world. Many of the zoo residents are part of globally managed programs to preserve animals and their habitats. The zoo is located on five wooded acres, and is family friendly with the opportunity for children and adults to experience animals up close. The Charles Paddock Zoo is accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, placing them in an elite group of only 220 accredited institutions in North America.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Tambov the Tugboat” by Mark F. King

Tambov the Tugboat, by Mark F. King, is a delightful trip through the protected harbors of individuality.

Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada — Mark F. King’s Tambov the Tugboat lets this little tugboat make its way in a broad changing world and still remain relevant and important. A much needed reminder for finding one’s own strength and using them to their fullest.

Tambov the tugboat was the most useful tugboat in the harbor. She was small, and speedy. Tambov could dart in and out of the docks and around big ships. She was special.

A story of facing adversity and remaining true to your own standards, Tambov is a little steam engine that finds her place in a world of big diesels and gas powered tugs. Just because you are not the biggest or the most powerful doesn’t mean you don’t have a place in this world!

This story helps reinforce hard work and persistence, as well as belief in oneself.

“I love this book and so does my daughter. I really enjoy reading this to her and creating the sound effects, we both enjoy the detailed illustrations. I wish that more books published today like Tambov the Tugboat. This reminded me a bit of the Little Golden Books.” ~Amazon Verified Buyer

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Messy Larry” by David J. Perri

Messy Larry, by David J. Perri, helps you connect with your creative child through an inspirational tale of a delightfully ‘messy’ hero.

Wheeling, WV, USA — David J. Perri’s Messy Larry is about being who you are, and about becoming who you were meant to be.

Messy Larry is an educational, feel-good story for the creative, art-inclined child. – Kirstan Nicole

Art is about self-expression and the desire to create. What is the role of art in your life? What if you had no way to express yourself? How would you be different?

Larry is a little different from the other kids in his grade school class. For starters, he’s big, and he’s clumsy, and he looks kind of like a bear! Larry loves art and wants to make art, but his messiness keeps getting in the way, with hilarious results.

At his wit’s end, he seeks out a favorite relative. Great Uncle Ken helps Larry find a way to express the beauty he knew was inside him. But, self-realization is often a messy and uncomfortable process. The undercurrent themes of compassion, acceptance, and understanding will resonate with many children.

A special “things to think about” section in the back provides the opportunity for discussion of these themes, as well as for the child to experience the book in a more interactive way.

Author/Illustrator David J. Perri is a native Pittsburgher who has lived in beautiful West Virginia for the past fifteen years. He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Dayton School of Law. He has two kids, works as a federal prosecutor, and likes to paint in his spare time.

Genre – Art, Artistic, Creative, Creativity, Self-Expression, Acceptance, Different, “Fitting In”, Friendship, Kids, Bear, Funny Bear

“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, convert image formats, and perform essential image adjustments. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

Optimize multiple InDesign files
-Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
Convert RGB images to specific CMYK profile
-Change their resolution to 300 dpi
-Run a Photoshop action on each image
-Resave PNG files as PSD

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 US$259.95 (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 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2019.

Output Factory Server for InDesign Streamlines Workflow on macOS Mojave

Zevrix Solutions announces Output Factory Server 2.1.21, a maintenance update to company’s output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The software automates printing and exporting from InDesign by processing files from watched hot folders. Output Factory Server offers layer versioning, preflighting, email notifications, PDF security presets and more. The new version eliminates workflow interruptions which can be caused by some new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 2.1.21 a feature update to company’s output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Output Factory Server automates InDesign production workflow by processing files from watched hot folders. The software offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.

The new version eliminates workflow interruptions which can be caused by Apple Event sandboxing – a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave. Under the new policy, apps can no longer control other apps without initial user authorization, which directly affects productivity tools that require access to InDesign and other system resources in order to perform complex workflow automation tasks. The new update of Output Factory Server streamlines the authorization process by clearing all permissions during launch time, which eliminates workflow interruptions during file processing. The app will also automatically reset Apple Event permissions if the authorization was previously revoked by accident.

Output Factory Server is intended to run on a dedicated Mac station where it can serve unlimited users via watched hot folders on a network. Users can create hot folders for different output targets such as hi-res PDF, color printing, EPUB files and so on. The app offers the following key features:

Output InDesign files automatically from hot folders
-Supports print, PDF, PostScript, TIFF, EPUB and other formats
-Output to multiple formats from a single hot folder
-Automatic email notifications
-Layer versioning
-Run custom scripts
Variable output file names
Automatic preflighting
-PDF security presets for different workflows

Pricing and Availability:
Output Factory Server can be purchased from Zevrix web site for US$699.95, as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The upgrade to version 2 is $350 for the licensed users of Output Factory Server 1.x and BatchOutput Server. Output Factory Server requires macOS 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign CS5-CC 2019.
