In addition the team took the opportunity to reengineer it's mission statement to ensure that it was pertinent to the new direction and vision of Cole's. With a well de!ne and established plan Cole's Printery is now ready to serve it's clients with renewed energy and direction.

Cole's continues to Upgrade it's Equipment

Coles recently invested in new binding equipment known as the Bourg Binder and a larger format Stahl Folding Machine. The former provides perfect binding with the latest technology. It has the ability to bind from a 5 page booklet to a 500 page book. The Stahl Folder will improve the turnaround time for folding documents since it decreases the production time at this point of the printing process. The purchase of this equipment continues to be part of the strategic plan to decrease the production time and improve the quality of the !nal product to our valued clients.

The Training Imprint

An important part of attaining this objective is to always ensure members of the Coles team are exposed and trained in the use of this equipment. This continuous training is a mandate that Cole's takes very seriously. In November 2005 and January 2006 Coles sent two of it's team members Marville Alleyne of the Pre Press Department and Roland Bridgeman of the Press Department to complete a two week Operators Course on the Indigo Digital Press, at the Hewlett Packerd training facility, Idaho USA. The two week programme consisted of theory/classroom application in the morning and practical exercises in the afternoon, this was followed by review in the evening. The training concentrated on how to maintain, operate and troubleshooting of the machine. According to Roland, `the training was very interesting' and provided him with the information on how to operate this latest piece of the equipment. Both members noted that the classrooms were small and provided for a great deal of individual attention, which made the training more effective. The new Digital Press is an extremely versatile machine, which is perfect for short runs. Cole's congratulates both members for successfully completing the course and receiving Certi!cates of Participation.

This is driven by a corporate objective of continuous improvement of processes through ef!ciency and enhanced systems.

Intergraph does additional training

Further to the training received by Roland and Marville and due to the high demand in short run high quality print, Cole's Printery Ltd made the decision to invest in the training of another staff member, Patrick Whitehead of the Press Department , in the Operators Course for the HP Indigo 1050 Digital Press. Carlos Gomez of Intergraph Corp in Miami conducted this training at the Printery in July 2006. This one-on-one training proved to be a great success, and Patrick earned a `Special Mention' at the December Staff Awards for being the one responsible for Cole's Printery meeting our customer's short run needs during our busiest time of the year. We congratulate Patrick on his quick learning of the press and thank him for a job well done.

Imprinting a healthy life

Fatigue: When to rest, when to worry When is fatigue due simply to a hectic day? Fatigue can have many causes -- from lack of sleep to lack of exercise. But fatigue may also signal other health problems. Here are some tips on interpreting what causes fatigue and how to beat it. Some days you're so low on energy that you're drowsy by lunchtime and in need of a nap by mid afternoon. What's making you so tired all the time? Stress, poor eating habits, overwork, even medical treatments can wear you down. Maybe it's just a normal part of life. But sudden or persistent fatigue, despite adequate rest, may mean it's time for you to consult your doctor. Unrelenting exhaustion may be a sign of an underlying medical problem.

Whatever the cause, once you discover what's draining your energy, you can take steps to put the vitality back in your life.

Why so weary?

Taking a quick inventory of the things that might be responsible for your exhaustion is the !rst step toward relief. Fatigue can have a variety of lifestyle causes, including: § Lack of sleep. Getting even an hour less than the sound slumber you need each night can leave you drowsy and unable to manage your daily routine. You may not go to bed early enough. Or more likely, you go to bed but can't sleep well. As you get older, it becomes harder to get uninterrupted sleep. You sleep less soundly. You awaken earlier. Stress and anxiety. If you're running from one task to the next without a break, it's eventually going to wear you down. Going through life anxious and on edge can keep you from relaxing and getting the rest you need. Inactivity. You're too tired to exercise, so you don't. But then when §

you do exert yourself, you tire easily because you're out of shape. Engaging in moderate physical activity for a half-hour most days of the week may decrease stress, improve mood and leave you feeling energized. Don't schedule your activity too close to bedtime, though, or you might have trouble falling asleep. Eating habits. If you're not eating properly or drinking enough "uids, your body isn't getting the fuel and "uid it needs. Trying to remedy this with caffeine can back!re, especially if you consume it late in the day. Caffeine not only makes it harder to fall asleep, it also interferes with sound sleep and may keep you tossing and turning throughout the night. Certain medications. Some medications, including many beta blockers and antihistamines, can cause fatigue. In addition, some cold medications and pain relievers contain caffeine and other stimulants that can keep you up at night.
