BMW LINK: this ain’t your grandma’s scooter

bmw-motorrad-link.gif

Is it a cool scooter or a small motorcycle? The new BMW Motorrad Concept, LINK, is designed to be a cross between. By making this motorcycle smaller it is designed to navigate congested city streets¬†like a scooter. The¬†electric drive allows for a lower seat, so you don’t have that driving-on-a-bar-stool posture typical of gas-fed scooters.¬†In addition it has:

  • A reverse gear, to aid in parking and other scenarios
  • Under-seat storage¬†for that funky headgear you insisted on getting
  • Cut-away display for the cool built-in, on-board tech

Acrobat Page Numbering

Often times, a PDF’s pagination doesn’t match the pagination as displayed in document. For example, a document containing caption, contents and authorities¬†pages, may have its first narrative page set 7 pages into the file.¬†This makes navigation problematic.

Many courts now require that the PDF page numbering match the original document pagination. Follow these instructions to renumber your PDF.

To Renumber Pages in an Acrobat PDF

To label or suspend numbering for an un-numbered page
(e.g. Caption pages)

  1. Display Page Thumbnails by clicking Thumbnails icon at left.
  2. RT+CLICK on the page thumbnail and select Number pages. The Page Numbering dialog appears.
  3. In the Pages section choose ‘Selected’.
  4. In the Numbering section select ‚ÄėBegin new section‚Äô.
  5. Click Style drop-down and select None.
  6. Set Prefix to appropriate label (e.g., Caption, CoverPg, etc.) or leave blank.
  7. Click OK.

To renumber pages within a section (e.g., Table of Contents)

  1. Display Page Thumbnails by clicking Thumbnails icon at left.
  2. To select multiple pages, click on the first page of the section, then scroll down and SHIFT+CLICK on the last page.
  3. RT+CLICK on one of the selected thumbnail pages and select Number pages. The Page Numbering dialog appears.
  4. In the Pages section choose ‘Selected’.
  5. In the Numbering section select ‚ÄėBegin new section‚Äô.
  6. Click Style drop-down and select desired format (e.g., i ii iii).
  7. Set Prefix to blank (i,e. leave this field empty).
  8. Set Start¬†to ‘1’.
  9. Click OK.

Cheers!

SOS: Save Our Swiss Alps (with Snowblowers?)

Starting this summer, Johannes Oerlemans of Utrecht University and his colleagues will blow artificial snow onto a small glacier at the foot of Diavolezzafirn, in the south-eastern part of Switzerland. The hope is that a thin white sheet of snow will increase the sunlight reflected, and thus protect the ice underneath from melting, Oerlemans explained at the European Geosciences Union on Thursday (Apr. 27). If this $100,000 pilot project is successful, researchers hope they can raise funding to use the technique to protect the Morteratsch glacier, a huge tourist attraction that‚Äôs considered a national treasure‚ÄĒbut is shrinking.
