Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 (Software Review)

Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 is the newest photo editing and management software from Ashampoo. The company is based in Oldenburg, Germany and is a well known provider around the world for virus protection, photo and video editing programs and other related computer software. The newest release allows users to easily find, move, edit and otherwise interact with virtual photos contained on Windows PC computers. The software has plenty of great features that includes easy photo management tools, fast photo saves and downloads photo editing options and more. Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 is a good piece of software for photo enthusiasts that has the ability to perform a ton of different actions from a single program.

There's a good chance most users will already have their photos on their computer before purchasing a copy of Ashampoo Photo Commander 12, but the product does support imports, moves and ways to sort images with super fast download and upload speeds. Users can have the software search for images that would be considered lookalikes to help remove multiple copies of the same images, apply keywords to certain images for easy ways to bring up certain collections later or save images to a bunch of different supported formats including, but not limited to, Adobe Photoshop Documents to use with other programs.

Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 isn't the most cost efficient photo managing software on the market, and it doesn't have all of the power or features of some similar top of the line programs, but the software more than makes up for any shortcomings with a nice collection of features that will actually replace many different programs on a user's computer with a bevy of tools and customization options. Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 comes packed with ways to find and move or convert images, but users can also use a plethora of photo editing tools to perform actions such as correcting blurry images, removing red eyes or flipping photos to a desired angle. These options are perfect for users looking to touch up old photos on their computers or for those images that just didn't have the right lighting or other desired effect. The software also supports video playback and has some tools for customizing video content for users interested in video editing.

Once an image has been found and edited, Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 allows users to do a lot of creative ideas with their new images. Tools for the software include ways to add new effects to images that can be fun, funny or even a little embarrassing depending on what the user is looking to add to the enhanced picture. Users can also create slideshows of vacations or special events or combine a group of images from different photo sets to create and print out a customized calendar or greeting cards. These neat features can save users a lot of time and money without having to import images to another piece of software or purchase custom calendars and greeting cards online from a separate company.

Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 doesn't exactly feature any tools or options not available in many other photo editing software, but it's available for a good price for the features it does offer and won't break the bank to be sure. Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 is Ashampoo's newest release for the brand, and it's the best photo editing software the company currently has to offer for its price.

Director of Winemaking Steve Leveque Has Revealed New Details For Technical Innovations At HALL Wines

By : Amanda Dyar on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 | 11:03 AM

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Director of Winemaking Steve Leveque has reached new technical innovations in winemaking since joining HALL Wines located in Napa Valley. Read on to learn more.

Since joining HALL Wines in 2008, one of the premier set of luxury wineries based in Napa Valley, Director of Winemaking Steve Leveque has been strategically creating a technical blueprint for HALL Wines in St. Helena and HALL Wines in Rutherford that has paved the way for technical innovation in winemaking.

Directing winemaking for approximately 500 acres of land and five certified organic vineyards, Steve’s technical implementation and execution at HALL Wines has allowed for the creation of spectacular classic Bordeaux varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc that has garnered critical acclaim. This portfolio recognition includes over 75 wines rated 90 points and above. Most notably, Robert Parker rated 2010 HALL “Exzellenz” from the historic Sacrashe Vineyard at the HALL Rutherford site 100 points in 2013.

Under Steve’s winemaking direction at HALL Wines, the following technology has been implemented as part of the annual winemaking operations:

  • Addition of the Optical Sorter Technology that helps identify and maintain grape quality
  • HVAC Control System (by EMCOR) where winemaking can control humidity, heating, cooling, air and ventilation from a single button, winery wide;
  • State of the Art Pond Variation System turning the irrigation system from ‘anaerobic’ into an ‘aerobic’ that drastically reduces energy
  • Gravity Flow Production System that combines new age technology with old world winemaking practices;
  • Tank Cooling System (Glycol System by Tankor) that can heat and cool fermentation at the touch of a button from an iPhone or lap top.

This in particular is in other industries but not a standard in winemaking productions and operations;
  • State of the art automated spectrophotometer that runs enzymatic analysis, acetic, yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN), malic, glucose fructose in the Lab;
  • Solar panels to monitor energy production and greenhouse gasses that are avoided;

Born and raised in Napa Valley, Steve has earned a reputation for finely crafting wines that reflect the purity of the land. The 20-year veteran of the industry honed his winemaking techniques during his 11-year tenure as a winemaker at Robert Mondavi Winery also in Napa Valley. Steve is not only a winemaker but also a lifelong viticulturist, spending considerable time working with HALL Wines director of vineyards, Don Munk, President and former winemaker Mike Reynolds, and his winemaking teams to produce fruit at a level of quality necessary for world-class wines. Steve is dedicated to creating organic grape growing environments and practices environmental sustainability with all winemaking efforts.

Steve is scheduled to speak on various upcoming engagements including an elite panel titled “Head for the Hills” during Flavor! Napa Valley this November.

Owners Craig and Kathryn Walt Hall are also prominent business and public figures. Craig is a serial entrepreneur and author of five books (owns HALL Financial in Dallas), and Kathryn is our former United States Ambassador to Austria under the Bill Clinton Administration. Additionally, Kathryn comes from a family of vintners and both are actively involved in the day-to-day operations of HALL Wines and WALT Wines in Sonoma.

Dr. C. Norman Shealy Announces New Therapy That May Help People Live Longer

Dr. C. Norman Shealy has revealed a new therapy that may help people live longer which was shown in a clinical study with the full results being released of the Bliss Oils study this August. Read on.

Harvard-trained neurosurgeon Dr. C. Norman Shealy develops an innovative new therapy that challenges the phenomenon of aging. For the first time, he has shown in a clinical study that telomeres can be regenerated in healthy people and plans to release results of the Bliss Oils study in August.

"Every time DNA cells divide, we lose a little bit of telomere length, and eventually, the loss is what prevents proper cell division and limits human life," Shealy said.

Science has established that people who have longer telomeres, the tips of strands of human DNA, live longer lives and are less susceptible to some diseases. It is the natural lifelong reduction in the length and integrity of the DNA tips that has been a challenge for researchers, until now.

"If we were able to prevent the natural loss of telomere length of 1 percent per-year and instead re-grow telomeres at 3-4 percent per-year, healthy humans could live twice as long as they do today," Shealy said.

Renowned pain expert, holistic healer, and longevity researcher Shealy had 30 participants in his study who for 30-60 minutes a day reclined on a therapeutic mattress, designed by himself, which used a Tesla coil to create an electromagnetic field over the mattress, resonating at the human DNA frequency of 54-78 GHz.

"We found that instead of losing 1 percent of telomere length per year, 70 percent of the study's participants increased their telomere lengths an average of 3-4 percent per-year, over the 5-year-study," Shealy said. "Sustained regrowth of telomeres at these rates has the potential to double the lifespan of healthy people."

Shealy presented the study's findings at the Southern Medical Association and the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine last Fall and is continuing his work in the field of developing therapies to increase telomere length.

In August, he will present results of the Bliss Oils study that explores the possibility that certain essential oil blends may produce the same telomere growth rate that the resonating electromagnetic mattress produced in the study. Shealy formulated the oil blends, called Bliss Oils, which work by being applied to certain regions of the body connected by five energetic acupuncture circuits, which Shealy refers to as 'The Five Rings' that help balance our elemental energies.

"If the Bliss Oils produce telomere growth, we will be able to offer people an inexpensive, life-extending therapy that they can do themselves in three minutes a day," Shealy said.

Shealy's new book Living Bliss: Major Discoveries Along The Holistic Path, released in June, offers more information on the five sacred rings of specific meridian-point stimulation and the five essential Bliss Oils he developed to activate these circuits.

Living Bliss: Major Discoveries Along The Holistic Path
By MD, PhD C. Norman Shealy
Publisher: Hay House (June 5, 2014)
ISBN: 1401942644

C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD is a neurosurgeon and humanistic psychologist with more than 50 years of professional experience in pain management and holistic medicine. A sought-after seminar speaker worldwide, frequent guest on radio and television programs across the U.S., and host of his own weekly radio show, Dr. Shealy recently released his 30th book, Living Bliss: Major Discoveries along the Holistic Path, in June.

Find Sales For Your Favorite Clothing and Accessories With The Fashion App Kwoller

Kwoller has released on the App Store and lets users swipe through clothing and accessories with the ability to add your favorite products to your "Love List." Read on to learn more about this new fashion app.

Kwoller, an e-commerce mobile app that launched at TechCrunch's Disrupt NY, is being referred to as the Tinder of shopping. Taking the swipe-to-judge interface, first popularized by the dating app, Kwoller lets users swipe through clothing and accessories, one product at a time. Items that have been favored are then added to a "Love List" that users receive instant alerts when their desired items go on sale.

Kwoller allows for "speed shopping" and through learning algorithms is able to recommend items that are specific to the user’s tastes based on their past shopping behavior.

Co-founders, Tim Bernal and Brian Louko, met at Columbia University and have spent the last two years developing Kwoller. Bernal, a retail veteran, says, “It’s incredible what you can do on your phone. However, when it comes to fashion, mobile commerce to date has really just been a tinier version of e-commerce - lots of small pictures with a reliance on search and filters. We wanted to reimagine shopping from the ground up and design an experience specifically for the small screen.”

Since their debut, the Kwoller team has been working to release several new developments and expect to drop them over the coming weeks. The team also has plans to eventually roll out menswear. Kwoller is available for download in the app store.
