CSEM strengthens relationship with Morphotonics by ordering nanoimprint equipment

Renowned Swiss institute CSEM has ordered from Morphotonics roll-to-plate pilot & small volume production equipment capable of producing freeform optics devices

VELDHOVEN, NOORD-BRABANT, NETHERLANDS, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CSEM strengthens relationship with Morphotonics by ordering nanoimprint equipment
Neuchâtel, Switzerland & Veldhoven, the Netherlands – February 25, 2020 – Renowned Swiss research and technology organization CSEM has ordered from Morphotonics roll-to-plate piloting & small volume production equipment capable of producing free-form optics devices.

The exponential growth of miniaturized optical components for a variety of applications demands for robust free-form micro-optics. To address this current market reality, the European PHABULOuS project (Pilot-line providing highly advanced & robust manufacturing technology for optical free-form μ-structures) was launched in January 2020 under CSEM’s leadership with the participation of 19 partners along the manufacturing value chain, including Morphotonics. Installing the large area substrate nano imprinting facility at CSEM by Morphotonics strengthens this endeavor even further.

Dr. Rolando Ferrini (CSEM Sector head & Project Coordinator for PHABULOuS):
“CSEM is extremely glad to have found in Morphotonics a competent and highly dedicated partner in roll-to-plate (R2P) UV imprint on large area substrates, which substantially complement its long standing competences in wafer scale UV replication. This will enable CSEM to better respond to customer’s requests in large area micro and nano UV replication. In particular, building a close collaboration between Morphotonics and CSEM, as reference Research and Technology Organization (RTO) for the large area R2P manufacturing of next generation free form micro optical components will be an asset for the recently born pilot line for the manufacturing of free form optical micro optics, PHABULOuS, funded under the H2020 framework program.“

Dr. Onno Lint (CEO of Morphotonics B.V.):
“We are extremely pleased that Swiss top-technology institute CSEM buys Morphotonics’ roll-to-plate technology as the new standard in large area nanoimprinting. We look forward to supporting CSEM’s strong expertise in micro-optics, lacquers and applications with our piloting equipment enabling low product cost and high throughput. This opens the door and paves the way for many commercial applications not previously conceptualized or economically feasible, ranging from new display technologies, novel lighting concepts and highly efficient solar solutions to life science products”.

The PHABULOuS consortium consists of 19 Companies and RTOs along the whole manufacturing value chain and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Grant Agreement nº 871710, in Public Private Partnership with Photonics 21.

Highly Decorated Green Beret, Special Ops Commander Jason Van Camp’s New Book Deliberate Discomfort Now Available

Deliberate Discomfort

Jason Van Camp, author of Deliberate Discomfort

~Amazon.com #1 bestseller shows how embracing discomfort enables winning on the battlefield, in the boardroom, and in life~

This book provides leadership and life lessons that will stay with me for the rest of my career and life. Every leader should read it.”

— Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera

WASHIGTON DC , UNITED STATES , February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — What are the real lessons of war? And can those lessons be applied away from the battlefield? Jason Van Camp and his team of Special Forces combat veterans not only answer it, but relay lessons learned under fire to show you how in his new book “Deliberate Discomfort-How U.S. Special Operations Forces Overcome Fear and Dare to Win by Getting Comfortable Being Uncomfortable.”

Readers can follow Jason’s inspiring journey as a new Special Forces leader searching for leadership lessons from some of the most decorated combat veterans in the United States military. Hear from Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg about how his training prepared him to tackle a suicide bomber, and how fellow Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry’s never-surrender mentality gave him the strength to grab an enemy grenade and throw it, losing his hand but saving his teammates’ lives. Together, these and other incredible true stories in Deliberate Discomfort paint a picture of how extreme circumstances and life or death situations can guide us all in our business and personal lives.

Virginia native Jason Van Camp attended and played football at West Point before earning his U.S. Army Ranger and Special Forces tabs. Major Van Camp then served as a Detachment Commander with 10th Special Forces Group, deploying multiple times to war zones in the Middle East and Africa, receiving three Bronze Stars, one with Valor. He now lives in Utah with his wife and children and is the Executive Director of www.warriorrising.org, which empowers U.S. military veterans and their immediate family members by providing them opportunities to create sustainable businesses, perpetuate the hiring of fellow American veterans, and earn their future.

Jason’s media book tour appearances include Fox News Channel, the Adam Carolla Show podcast, Dove TV, KMOX St. Louis, Newsmax TV, The Joe Pags Show and dozens more television and radio appearances and an editorial in the Washington Times.

Deliberate Discomfort: How U.S. Special Operations Forces Overcome Fear and Dare to Win by Getting Comfortable Being Uncomfortable is now available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and wherever books are sold from publisher Ballast Books.

Praise for Deliberate Discomfort has been pouring in from all corners:

Former Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs and longtime Proctor and Gamble head Robert A. McDonald says, “Deliberate Discomfort provides an intensely practical and enlightened path which challenges us to break out of our comfort zones. It will undoubtedly be lauded by both military and non-military readers alike as a powerful catalyst for individual change.”

Television and film actor and retired Marine Lt. Colonel Rob Riggle calls Deliberate Discomfort “Straight up authentic. For anyone that has ever wanted to overcome fear and do more in their life, Jason Van Camp doesn't just tell you to do it, he shows you how to do it. I have a renewed appreciation for the power of the human mind to dare to win.”

Frank W. Abagnale Jr, portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the film version of his best-selling book “Catch Me If You Can” calls Deliberate Discomfort “Gripping. Authentic. Engaging. Prodigiously researched, carefully argued, and gracefully written… a masterpiece.”

Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera says, “This book provides leadership and life lessons that will stay with me for the rest of my career and life. Every leader should read it.”

Sibling Rivalry is a film about brother and sister competing in a small town election.

Colacino Productions LLC Logo

Comedic short film turns on brother-sister competition as small town political opponents.

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Colacino Productions LLC announces that its comedic short film, “Sibling Rivalry,” has been named “official selection” of the 2020 Colorado Short Circuit Festival (https://indiespiritfilmfestival.org/csc/), and the 2020 Albany Film Festival (https://www.albanyfilmfestival.org).

In “Sibling Rivalry” a small town election becomes a battle of ideals for a brother and sister who run against each other for village trustee. “It’s ‘House of Cards’ meets ‘Parks-and-Rec’” says writer and producer, Don Colacino, who also directed the film. “The script has a tortured history, evolving from a really twisted family tree story to the quirky political satire that made it to the screen. I feel really lucky to have had such a great cast and crew who worked well together and made the set a lot of fun. Maya Jairam and Richard Ortner, my two lead actors, are just so perfect in their roles! During filming I almost ruined a couple of takes by laughing as I watched the monitor.” While the cast was comprised of both professional actors like Jairam and Ortner, the crew were entirely students at the time. Most have now graduated to professional careers in the film industry in Hollywood, Albuquerque, and other film-friendly locales, as well as in Colorado which is home to a robust and growing filmmaker community.

“Sibling Rivalry” was released to festivals in December 2019 and will make its screen debut on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at the Ivywild School Events Center in Colorado Springs. Then on Friday, March 27, 2020 it will screen at the University of Albany in the capital city of the filmmaker’s home state of New York.

Colacino Productions LLC (colacinoproductions.com), a Business-to-Business (B2B) film production company focused on documentary, commercial, and industrial films, created the film in association with Colorado Film School.

Justin C. Williams Laser’s Brief History of Light Gun Games

Justin C. Williams Laser reviews a timeline of light gun games’ popularity.

PARK CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — While the popularity of light gun games (games in which the player utilizes a controller shaped like a gun to shoot targets on screen) has been waning in recent years, the genre’s roots stretch back further than many people may realize, Justin C. Williams Laser notes. The first light gun game was created before even electronic video games were invented—the Seeburg Ray-O-Lite, a wooden arcade cabinet with analog moving parts released in 1936, used a light gun as its control method. In this case, the gun literally shot a ray of light, which was then picked up by light-detecting sensors located behind or within wooden cut-out targets of birds. The methods and techniques used to create light gun games since the 1930s, but the core gameplay has, unsurprisingly, remained the same: point and shoot.

As mechanical games began losing popularity, electronic games came to the forefront and the technology behind light guns changed to match: instead of shooting light, the guns were built to receive light that is displayed in a specific manner by the game when the trigger is pulled. Many would point to Nintendo’s Duck Hunt as the earliest example they can think of for a home electronic light gun game, but Justin C. Williams Laser points out there were predecessors. One of the earliest was for the Magnavox Oddysey, entitled Shooting Gallery.

The Odyssey was a primitive home game console with limited display capabilities. In fact, Justin C. Williams Laser notes, it could only display three square-shaped dots and one vertical line. The console was packaged with “overlays” for your television screen—in this case, players would place the “Shooting Gallery” overlay on top of their screen, which displayed numerous outlines of animals, and plug in the corresponding game card. The dots would light up behind the animals in predetermined sequences. The light gun for the Oddysey was a large, realistic-looking rifle (Justin C. Williams Laser mentions it even needed to be cocked after every shot). Most gun controllers released in the future would adopt a more toy-like design and coloring, for numerous somewhat obvious reasons.

As time marched on, several conventions of the light gun genre changed and became conventionalized: the popular rifle shape of the controller transitioned into a pistol, which is now ubiquitously the standard for light guns. New gameplay standards were also established over time, such as moving “through” levels as new targets pop up. More often than not, Justin C. Williams Laser mentions, the player is not in direct control of their character. This has led to the alternate naming of the genre as “on rails” or “rails shooter”, as an allusion to theme park rides.

Unfortunately, classic light gun controllers are no longer compatible with newer HD TVs, as a result of their technology making use of the manner in which older televisions refreshed their pictures. Justin C. Williams Laser points out that while modern controllers make use of infrared (such as the Wii controller), they aren’t as accurate due to input lag.

National Floors Direct Geared Up for Success

National Floors Direct

ASTORIA, NY, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — National Floors Direct, one of the East Coast’s most successful direct-to-consumer carpet and flooring specialty services, is expanding its commercial and residential footprint. The company has flourished over the past few years and in 2019 opened a brand new 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art distribution center in its home base, Astoria, NY, to meet increasing demand. The renowned flooring supplier also secured some significant contracts for commercial projects in the NYC area, including a partnership with Fresh & Co. and real estate developer HCRE, and promoted three staff members to management positions.

National Floors Direct’s founders are industry veterans with decades of experience operating floor covering shops throughout the East Coast. In 2005, they decided to forge their own path with the direct-to-consumer venture, cutting out the middle man to provide “all the best attributes of traditional retail and none of the downside.” National Floors Direct’s success is a testament to the value of educated risk-taking. With its motto, “We Bring the Store to Your Door,” the company has steadily grown into the niche market monolith it is today.

With National Floors Direct, customers are spoilt of choice with an extensive catalog of carpet, luxury vinyl, hardwood laminate, and commercial flooring products from some of the biggest name brands in the world. While such products would normally cost a pretty penny, National Floors Direct’s unique approach of bridging the gap between manufacturer and consumer enables them to guarantee the lowest prices in the industry by 15 percent or more.

Not only do customers get a guaranteed bargain on exceptional products, but they also enjoy first-class customer service. The National Floors Direct team visits clients’ homes with samples to help them choose the ideal products for their space. Unlike visiting a showroom, this allows clients to see exactly what the flooring will look like with their lighting, furniture, and decor. The team also offers instant estimates and next-day installation on all in-stock merchandise.

With a service region encompassing much of the Northeast, including Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, South-eastern Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Eastern Pennsylvania, and a slew of five-star reviews, National Floors Direct is well on its way to becoming one of the United States’ foremost flooring providers.

Skip Drish Tampa Offers Tips for Safe Boating

Skip Drish Tampa

TAMPA, FL, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — It may be the dead of winter, but in Florida, the sun is almost always shining. It’s no wonder the Sunshine State is a top destination for snowbirds, including thousands of fishermen and maritime enthusiasts. Skip Drish Tampa, is an avid seaman, as well as an experienced safety and security professional. Skip Drish offers a few key tips to staying safe on the water during your Florida holiday.

First, Skip Drish Tampa advises to make a float plan and stick to it. The plan is a simple record of your name, address, departure place and time, expected arrival destination and time, and boat make and model. You can give this information to a family member, friend, or marina staff member. These are particularly important if you’re planning a longer trip, as those who know of your plan can then alert authorities if you have not been seen or heard from and are past your expected return date.

Next, Skip Drish of Tampa says every boater should have a properly-fitted life jacket on board. This means if you are taking kids with you, ensure you have child-size jackets. Also, have a safety raft or tube on board. Ideally, everyone on the boat should know how to swim as well, and at least one adult should know CPR in case of an emergency. Skip Drish Tampa and many community organizations offer water safety and emergency response classes throughout Florida. Dedicating a few hours to learning such skills could save a life.

Finally, don’t let anyone on the boat imbibe alcohol or drugs unless it is safely docked in the marina or you are being chartered by a designated, and sober, captain. Likewise, don’t permit horseplay and prevent passengers from riding on the bows of the boat, as they may fall and get sucked into the propellers. As with any outdoor activity, it’s a good idea to check the weather before you set off as well.

Skip Drish Tampa has dedicated much of his life to protecting and serving on land and at sea. A licensed 100-ton boat captain, he contracts with the local police department and assists with search and rescue efforts. He also has an impressive background in security, emergency response, and law enforcement. After serving in the U.S. military as a Military Police/Investigations Corporal and Squad Leader in the U.S. and Europe from 1981 to 1984, during which time he earned a U.S. Army Medal for Heroism in the line of duty, Skip Drish served in various roles within local, state, and government law enforcement arenas, beginning with a position as a Chicago Police Department officer. Skip Drish Tampa has also served in various roles in security, medical services, and investigations, including working on the front lines and as an educator for emergency first response.
