“Love Life. Love God. Love each other. That’s all there is.”— Joe Rubinstein

I cannot imagine a world without Joe, but thankfully his life, legacy, and lessons will live on through the example he set for us all. Joe gave us an inspirational map on how to deal with adversity.”

— Author Nancy Sprowell Geise

CASTLE ROCK, CO, UNITED STATES, July 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Holocaust survivor Joe Rubinstein passed away peacefully in Loveland, Colorado, on July 18, 2022. Joe was the believed to be the oldest known Holocaust survivor in Colorado.

Icek Jakub Rubinsztejn ”Joe Rubinstein” was born on September 16, 1920 in Radom, Poland. After Germany invaded Poland, Joe and his family were sent to the Radom Ghetto in 1941.

Two weeks later, Joe was taken from the ghetto and sent to several concentration camps. Joe never saw his family again. His widowed mother, Reska, his older brother, Dawid, Joe’s identical twin, Chaim, his younger brother, Abram, and younger sister, Laja, were all believed murdered at the Treblinka Death camp following the “liquidation” of the Radom Ghetto in 1942.

“It is my deepest prayer,” said Nancy Sprowell Geise, author of the award-winning book about his life, Auschwitz #34207 – The Joe Rubinstein Story, “that at this moment Joe is in the loving embrace of his beloved family. Although he survived decades without them, they never were far from his thoughts and heart. Even at the age of 101, Joe could not speak of them without weeping.”

Throughout his life, Joe defied the odds. He went on, not only to survive several of the most notorious Nazi concentration camps, including over two years at Auschwitz/Birkenau, but to live a long, productive, and joy-filled life. Joe and his bride, Irene, moved to the United States in 1949. Joe would become one of New York City’s leading shoe designers, working for such iconic companies as Korkease Shoes, Herbert Levine Shoes, Nina Shoes, Gelbrow Shoes, and later in California for Sbicca of California and Cherokee of California.

Joe’s philosophy of living so long: “Eat right, exercise every day and help each other. That’s what I did.”

Geise said, “For nearly 70 years Joe never told anyone about his story because he did not think anything good could come of it. After the book about his life was published, Joe was deeply touched by the many letters and feedback he got from people around the world telling him that if he found a way to live a joy-filled life after losing all he did, then they knew they could find a way to face their troubles.”

Geise is grateful that Joe finally decided to tell his story so that his family of origin will never be forgotten. “He became a voice for many who perished in the Holocaust and did not live to share their stories.”

“He was an inspiration to so many,” Geise said. “He will continue to be an inspiration for future generations about not giving in to despair and not turning to darkness. Instead, Joe saw the best in people. He lived into the idea of how we each have a choice in how we respond to adversity. Joe chose joy.”

Joe is survived by his wife, Irene, of 74 years, a son, daughter-in-law, three grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

On his 100th birthday, the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, declared the day “Joe Rubinstein Day.”

Geise said, “Joe told me in one of the last conversations I had with him, that every day he thanks God that he is alive, but that he is ready when God calls him home. Joe loved to remind people that life is precious and that we should never give up on it. I am grateful that he never did.”

Well known for custom and retail coloring book manufacturing since 1988, the company brings in-house perfect bound and hard cover book finishing options.

It’s a pleasure and fun offering new and current customers perfect and hard back book options for their needs. And it brings jobs to our industry.”

— N. Wayne Bell Publisher

ST. LOUIS, MO, USA, July 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — US based Really Big Coloring Books® | ColoringBook.com a recognized leader in custom and retail coloring book production adds services to include traditional perfect binding-glued soft covers, and case bound-hardcover book finishing. “Purchasing manufacturing equipment and expanding with in-house production of perfect and hard back book finishing has been a natural progression for our company,” says Founder & CEO, N. Wayne Bell. “Over the years our company has employed artists, editors, writers, designers, and sales staff to produce coloring book products for businesses and consumers. During this time we outsourced perfect bound and hard back book projects. Historically we produced coloring books and some full color products while our binding area specialized in spiral, saddle stitching and pad/glued books. Now we add to these new services and bring additional binding options in house. The expansion includes new equipment, additional productions service, an extensive training program and more jobs”. Bell commented on the new service options.

“Perfect Binding is a widely recognized soft cover book binding method in which the pages and cover become glued together at the spine with a strong and flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book become trimmed to give them clean perfect edges. Perfect bound books may feature a clear coat or laminate cover to enhance the quality and appearance of the book”. The company states they manufacture perfect bound books in about any size from 5.5 x 8.5 inches to larger formats of 13 x 19 inches, beginning with a cover and two sheets of paper up to about 2.5 inches thick representing approximately five hundred sheets. Customers with catalogs, brochures and marketing pieces often prefer a glued perfect binding to enhance the look, feel and professionalism compared to the traditional saddle stitched or stapled pieces he said.

“Case binding, commonly referred to as hardcover binding, involves the construction of an exterior case made of various strengths of cardboard wrapped with the cover paper. Case binding is a more complicated process compared to other common types of binding and is a preferred binding method of educators, libraries, bookstores, retailers, and consumers. Considered the best binding technique of the publishing industry. The inside pages may be sewn together and then glued to the end-papers and then glued to the covers spine. “Offering this traditional book binding style to our new and current customers has been a winning service for our sales staff,” stated Bell.

He continued, “Square back binding is a advanced technology of the higher-end digital print industry and looks like perfect binding in shape, appearance, and professionalism. This technology is often replacing the traditional saddle stitched booklets. The pages are then stitched to the binding/cover with wire. The appearance of the book binding is a square edge and when the book opens it gives the same feel as a perfect bind”.

“Spiral binding never goes out of style,” said Bell. “The company has made spiral products for 35+ years, durability is a major factor offered by the various spiral options. The educational system, schools, libraries, artists, and anyone that loves a book to lay flat as they use it prefers spiral bound products. Another major difference is that coil binding is durable as it has no moving parts, where the binding opens there is less wear and tear on the book’s edge. Spiral books can be notebooks, coloring books or any type of book. These books can have a spiral binding on the top or side of the book, like the our ever popular and trademarked Travel Tablet Coloring Books® that are sold in stores nationally through retailers like Walmart.com, Amazon and the grocery industry”.

The company also manufactures various paper products, menus, pads, cards, anything a business or consumer requests printed on paper Bell says they will try and provide or refer them to someone who can. “Its all about working together in the publishing industry keeping it relevant, up to date and competitive with overseas operations while maintaining US jobs,” Bell said with a smile.

NEW TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN, July 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — As technology evolves, storage is getting slimmer and capacity is rapidly increasing. Storage is one of the key elements of a POS system, and customers always demand higher capacity and smaller size while retaining the flexibility to expand storage in the future. Clientron’s innovative mechanical design Easy Access M.2 SSD with dual storage slots for NVMe and SATA SSD drives makes it easy to utilize your storage.

The Easy Access M.2 SSD design allows you to replace the M.2 SSD drive without disassembling the entire POS terminal; therefore, users can easily upgrade or replace the drive themselves. M.2 is the term that describes the form factor, so you can get M.2 drives that use either SATA or NVMe connection protocols. The Easy Access M.2 SSD is compatible with SATA and NVMe, possibly covering all SSD connection standards, and you can also move the screw in the middle of the tray to install a 2242 or 2280 size SSD drive in the POS terminal.

A POS system not only simplifies the transaction process, but also helps you manage inventory and analyze sales trends, so it stores a huge amount of data such as inventory, transactions, memberships, and everything about your customers. The Easy Access M.2 SSD offers two storage slots for maximum storage of up to 1TB, enough to handle all your business data. In addition, the mechanical design of the Easy Access M.2 SSD tray maximizes the data transfer speed of the PCI-e interface, enabling the POS system to process data faster than HDD or SATA drives.

US yearbook guidelines and standards finalized at SPOA Conference

Production of a school yearbook

School Yearbooks

Keeping the yearbook tradition alive and well is a core focus of our industry association.”

— David Crandall

GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, July 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 2022-2023 SPOA Digital Guidelines and Standards for Yearbook for the usage and production of yearbooks for all U.S. schools was finalized and ratified Friday, June 10, at the International Conference on School Photography and Yearbooks in Houston, Texas. The event was hosted by the School Photographers of America (SPOA).

David Lake, the executive board chair of the Digital Guidelines and Standards committee, met with national companies to review edits to proposed guidelines and standards. The committee voted on those changes and unanimously ratified the resulting document.

Lake announced the next standards discussion will take place in December, during SPOA’s in-person Leadership Summit, being held in Greenville, SC. The meeting will be held both virtually and in-person for those that can attend.

David Crandall, executive director, SPOA, announced he and Jake Mark of Dorian Studio, chair of the governing board and liaison to the secondary yearbook industry, will facilitate another secondary yearbook industry executive call in late July or August to discuss ways in which the school photography and yearbook industry can share best practices to keep both traditions strong for generations to come. The secondary yearbook industry is very different and more complex than the customary PK-8th grade markets, with the need for sports pictures, senior pictures, underclass pictures, club pictures, group pictures and more.

“SPOA is committed to advancing the conversation between school photographers, yearbook companies and software vendors to increase the market and the profitable of all,” says David Crandall, executive director, SPOA. “Keeping the yearbook tradition alive and well is a core focus of our industry association.”

School Photographers of America (SPOA) was formed in 2020 on behalf of school portrait studios to advocate for and to protect their copyrights, as well as establish and govern healthy standards and best practices for the school photography industry. This will ensure school photography remains a rich tradition in schools across North America.
