Northbrook, IL, Jan. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — For an eighth straight year, ST Imaging’s ViewScan 4 microfilm scanner has been recognized for a Platinum Modern Library Awards (MLAs) from LibraryWorks. ST Imaging, a Digital Check brand, is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacturing of digital microfilm viewer/scanners, and the only microfilm scanner manufacturer to have continuously received the Platinum MLA for all eight years.

“We are thrilled to be recognized again as a leading microfilm scanner in the library market by librarians,” says Matt Anderson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ST Imaging. “We are dedicated to continue to develop and enhance the user experience of the ViewScan 4 and PerfectView software.”

When designing the ViewScan 4 and PerfectView software, we received direct feedback from the industry on how to implement those features and how to make them easy to use. The result is a simplified, color-coded, streamlined user experience that makes working with microfilm fast and fun. While older reader/printers and other microfilm scanners can be difficult to use, the ViewScan makes loading and scanning film quick, fun, and easy. The ViewScan also allows users to share their discoveries like never before.

At ST Imaging, we understand that most customers are not experts in the field of digital image capture. Our system describes our camera size as we expect most of our customers to understand it, as you would for a cellphone or digital camera. The ViewScan 4 is equipped with a native 18-megapixel image sensor. That means there are 18 million pixels capturing the focused light providing an image instantly to the monitor. Competitive scanners may use a different definition for their camera. Be sure you have accurate information of the image sensor on the camera in your microfilm scanner and if you have any doubt, request a side-by-side comparison.

Jenny Newman, publisher and MLA program manager said, “It’s great to see ST Imaging and their ViewScan 4 be recognized year after year as a leading microfilm scanner in the library market.”

The MLAs were created to recognize top products in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products were submitted by companies, collected by LibraryWorks which distributes them to their database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers who have had experience with these products in their facilities were permitted to judge the products, resulting in a truly unbiased score.

The APM incorporates best practices in vehicle sustainability, manufacturing, design, and construction.

“LAX is a gateway to the world, and the APM is a critical investment that will improve access to its terminals, the recently opened LAX Economy Parking Garage, and the soon to be completed Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility for millions of passengers every year,” said Catherine Cronin, senior vice president, aviation and rail transit for Parsons. “Our team of aviation experts has proudly supported capital projects at LAX for more than two decades, and we are honored to be part of the LAWA team for this true milestone in one of the largest ongoing infrastructure projects in the United States.”

The APM will operate 24 hours, seven days a week and will be free to the public.

“Innovation, sustainability and state-of-the-art technology are integral to our ongoing modernization,” said Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, LAWA. “These automated people mover train cars will set a high standard for environmentally sustainable transportation, having shells made of recyclable materials and achieving zero emissions.

President Joe Biden tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday after several days of testing negative, marking the second time Biden tested positive for the virus this year.

White House physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor said in a memo to Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre that the president is feeling fine, but given the positive antigen test, he will reinitiate isolation procedures.

“The President has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, and continues to feel quite well,” Dr. O’Connor wrote. “However, given his positive antigen test, he will reinitiate strict isolation procedures.”

Biden, who is fully vaccinated, and has received two booster shots of Pfizer Inc.’s PFE BioNTech vaccine took to Twitter Inc TWTR to alert the American people of his positive test, “I’ve got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me,” the president tweeted. “I’m still at work, and will be back on the road soon.”

The President tested negative for four consecutive days, but according to Dr. O’Connor, Biden is experiencing “rebound COVID positivity in a small percentage of patients treated with Paxlovid,” Pfizer’s antiviral oral pill.

Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos Unite to ‘Change the Course’ of Neurological Disorder Impacting 6.5 Million Americans

It’s a well-known fact that Microsoft Corporation MSFT co-founder Bill Gates, through his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is working toward eliminating infectious diseases and eradicating poverty in developing and under-developed countries.

Gates took to Twitter this week to share details of another disease he is working to address.

“We’re announcing the second phase of @TheADDF’s diagnostics accelerator,” he said.

“I’m hopeful that this new phase will make advances that help change the course of Alzheimer’s.”

Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) launched the “Diagnostics Accelerator” in 2018, with inaugural funding from Gates, Est?e Lauder Companies Inc.’s EL Leonard Lauder, Amazon, Inc. AMZN founder Jeff Bezos and the Dolby Family. The project envisage making Alzheimer’s tests affordable, as the existing ones are expensive and invasive.

“The objective is to develop reliable and affordable biomarker tests just like how cholesterol is considered an early biomarker for heart disease risk,” ADDF said on its website.

All these are critical for developing effective preventative and curative treatments for Alzheimer’s, it added. Diagnostics Accelerator has now received an additional $50 million in financial commitments from new funders, including the NFL Players Association, Eli Lilly & Company LLY, Biogen, Inc. BIIB and the Shanahan Family Foundation. This brings the total funding received since 2018 to $100 million.

Effective treatments for Alzheimer’s, a neurological disorder, have thus far eluded researchers due to the difficulty in diagnosing the condition at an early stage and administering the drug to the brain for testing.

Biogen had a very rough launch of its controversial Alzheimer’s drug Aduhelm, with the CMS offering very restricted coverage for this expensive treatment.
