First 1: Help to troubleshoot my computer –

 It seems it doesn’t take long for a computer to start showing signs of Problems, PC or the Operators?

Here are five easy ways to deal  up your computer in the year ahead:

1. Don’t first Get rid of useless programs. You Might erase something important.. Instead buy a new larger hard drive for under a 100 dollars

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/upgrades/f/replace-hard-drive.htm

http://www.pcmech.com/article/installing-a-hard-drive-step-by-step/

2. Download the necessary programs and scan for viruses and malware at least once a month.. Someone said that Hell is here on earth for a start.. based on the number of daily viruses, Trojans increasing now that seems to be true.. Sometimes even the best antivirus program misses an infection. And once a  virus or Trojan horse gets in, removing it can be incredibly tough. If you  suspect some nasty got past your defenses, then it’s time to bring in extra  help. Many antivirus makers offer free and easy online scans through your Web  browser.  Again… as we learn … that there is no one program that gives 100% protection against viruses and malwares.  ** Not all computer problems are caused by viruses and malware. But first and foremost, do immediately get some computer protection. This includes anti-virus software, anti-spyware software, a firewall, anti-bot software and overall malware protection. One other way to help prevent spyware and other unwanted software is to make sure all your software is updated often too.

.

 
I am a pretty secure guy when it comes to using and maintaining my computer and so here are my  suggestions that I rely on  for a pretty trouble free computer   for my Windows PC  Keep your system up to date – visit http://www.windowsupdate.com to run a scan. It’ll step you through it.
.
 
Get Windows defender – head to www.windowsdefender.com  to grab this. It’s free and is from Microsoft. It does a pretty decent job of preventing spyware from entering your machine. Also, I love it for the feature of removing programs that start when your computer starts up . . . 
 
Get an Anti Virus software – Certain anti-virus software could bog down your machine  However, I’m using Avast and it’s doing great, it’s effective. And, best of all, it has a free version. Now,  to find from their website you head to www.download.com  and search for Avast 
On top of that since I found not one security software does everything still, periodically I also use the freeware Ad-Aware   and/or  Spybot – Search & Destroy  and they are easily obtained on the same site  www.download.com  and also do See all of the most popular downloads
.
 
For anti-spyware I would recommend Ad-Aware or  Spybot – Search & Destroy. Simple enough. Install and update although I wouldn’t recommend the extra features (teatimer and whatever the other one is) because they can get kind of annoying.
.
 
Also  I do urge you to update your operating systems, security software, updates  regularly, even at least every other day,  and do also perform virus & spyware scans frequently. The question is not if you will get a virus or spyware, but rather when?
.
 
As for other security recommendations, download and do use Mozilla Firefox. It is a faster, more secure, and easier to use. I would also recommend installing add ons called Ad Block Plus and Fasterfox.  Mozilla Firefox Install note: by default, some software  may or will install a toolbar and/or also change your home page. Pay attention to the install screens, and deselect them if you’re not interested. Go to the Control Panel in Window PC
.
- As for computer cleaning software I would recommend CCleaner.  CCleaner Clean up junk files and invalid Registry entries. Just click “Run cleaner” and “Scan registry for issues” (blue square) and that should clean out most of it. Also, running disk cleanup and disk defragmentor should speed up your computer significantly (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools). http://www.ccleaner.com/download
.
 
-  DriverMax  Extract and back up your Windows drivers and reinstall them easily after a new Windows setup.Now that you have some of the knowledge you need to know. Help others now too. Pass it on  http://www.drivermax.com/download.htm  
.
More tips now
- But Do see More great software http://www.snapfiles.com/   – Plus avoid emails from people you don’t know.

- Don’t just download stuff you really don’t know anything about.

- Avoid always going to risky sites (you can probably guess).

-Make sure you use secure passwords. These should be 8+ characters, consisting of numbers, letters and alphanumeric characters. It should also be something more complicated than a name or nickname. And for a  few examples would be SkAl2134!$ or S0mT1Ng$%#.

Your Windows PC – Best Practices Here are some more basic tips on keeping your computing experience as trouble-free as possible.

1.   Backup your files/information monthly at least 2.   Use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer for web browsing 3.   Use a reliable web based email like Gmail, so you have a backup of your emails online as well as onsite… you can set up POP access or access via web browser. 4.   Don’t download software from unknown sites 5.   Don’t use peer-to-peer software like   Limewire; if you must use them, remember: caveat emptor 6.   Ensure MS Windows is updated 7.   Ensure MS Office is updated if equipped 8.   Ensure the Windows Firewall is enabled 9.   Use a hardware firewall like a router if possible 10.   Don’t leave a wireless network unsecured/unencrypted 11.  Ensure antivirus software is installed and updated 12.   Ensure antispyware software is installed, updated and run periodically 13.  Defragment hard drive monthly 14.  Disable unused/unnecessary programs from startup in MSCONFIG 15.  Use Google Desktop Search for more efficient document retrieval and processing 16.  Keep all software disks that came with the computer and any peripherals; especially any software installation keys 17.  Don’t turn off your computer by unplugging it

“Here are some more basic hardware troubleshooting steps:

Open the computer and run it open after cleaning out all dust bunnies. Be careful when you clean; use compressed air and be gentle. Observe all fans (overheating will cause system freezing and/or crashing). This includes the fan on your video card if you have one. Obviously you can’t do this with a laptop, but you can hear if the fan is running and feel if the laptop is getting too hot. For a desktop, without touching anything, hold your hand close to the inside of the case and feel how hot things are getting.

Test the RAM – I like Memtest 86+ from http://www.memtest.org . Obviously, you have to get the program from a working machine. You will either download the precompiled Windows binary to make a bootable floppy or the .iso to make a bootable CD. If you want to use the latter, you’ll need to have third-party burning software on the machine where you download the file and burn as an image, not as data. In either case, boot with the media you made. The test will run immediately. Let the test run for an hour or two unless errors are seen immediately. If you get any errors, replace the RAM. It is extremely important that you get RAM that is compatible with your motherboard (and the RAM already in the machine). Crucial Technology has a Memory Selection Tool on their website.
 
Test the hard drive with a diagnostic utility from the drive manufacturer. If you aren’t sure what drive you have or can’t find a utility for it, Seagate’s SeaTools for DOScan test non-Seagate drives. Download the file and make a bootable floppy or CD with it. You need third-party burning software and to burn as an image, not as data. Boot with the media you created and do a thorough test. If the drive has physical errors, replace it. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
 
The power supply may be going bad or be inadequate for the devices you have in the system. The adequacy issue doesn’t really apply to a laptop, although of course the power supply can be faulty. For a desktop, test by swapping out the PSU for a known-working one. If you have one of the higher-end video cards that requires a separate power supply connector, make sure it is in place.
 
Test the motherboard with something like TuffTest from http://www.tufftest.com  or the Ultimate Boot CD. Sometimes this is useful, and sometimes it isn’t.
 
Testing hardware failures usually involved swapping out suspected parts with known-good parts. If you can’t do the testing yourself and/or are uncomfortable opening your computer, take the machine to a reliable professional computer repair shop. Check with others as to who is reliable and who is not first too.  . Have all your data backed up before you take the machine into a shop. “
 
Diagnosing your internet connectivity issues
  Testing your ISP- Understanding Your Internet Connection
  PING TEST- CONTINUAL PING TEST-TRACE ROUTE TEST If you question the speed or reliability of your ISP, your  Internet connection please run the following Internet connectivity tests. These two tests are a great way to see how you are connecting to the servers. 
 
Now what about also still testing the reliability of your ISP, your Internet service provider.. with a speed tests  http://www.acanac.ca/speedtest/  which still alone are not an adequate solution  here too. So what is? Old fashion Hard work, reading, evaluating, talking to others is often required still too. And often much more..
  
*You may need to run a software program as an administrator   To run a security software or any , other program as an administrator, go to the software short cut, Right click on  it,  got to the properties,  Go  to the Advanced box, click on it,  And select Run as Administrator,  save the settings

3. Backup.

Think about  protecting your valuable data. By a cheap portable external hard drive  If you’re not regularly backing up the files you really don’t want to lose — important documents, digital photos and video, downloaded music and movies — consider yourself lucky that you haven’t suffered a catastrophic loss and get to work.

Burning files to DVDs is falling out of fashion,  External hard drives are increasingly inexpensive — 500 gigabytes can easily be found for under $100 — and offer an easy way to back up by dragging and dropping files.

There are also options to store your files on the cloud — including Dropbox, iCloud and Google Cloud — which would protect you in case of equipment malfunction, fire or theft. but some hacker can access your confidential data

4. Browser updates.

You can’t blame web users for not being up to date with all the latest browsers. Take Mozilla’s Firefox, which was at version 10 at the beginning of the year and recently hit version 17. Version 18 is expected out in early January. .

5. Get it physically clean.

When’s the last time you gave your computer, keyboard and mouse a good scrub? According to Charles Gerba, a leading expert on germs based out of the University of Arizona, what you don’t see might gross you out. And if you’re not good about washing your hands, they could make you sick. Parainfluenza, E. coli, C. difficile and drug-resistant MRSA are among the things that could be lingering beneath your fingertips.

Use disinfecting wipes — which do not contain bleach — to clean keyboards, mice and other non-glass surfaces. Then wipe them dry with a soft lint-free cloth. In lieu of disinfecting wipes, Dell says you can use a mix of three parts water and one part liquid dishwashing detergent to clean keyboards and mice. To clean a monitor, Dell recommends using a specially designed screen-cleaning tissue and solution, but also says simply using water on a soft cloth will work.

 How to troubleshoot a specific computer problem What steps do you go through in order to diagnose a computer problem? There’s more than one correct answer, of course, but here’s one way to work through the troubleshooting thought process.

We all have our methods to identify and correct computer problems. Most of us probably have certain things we go through, or steps we follow, and so on. I’m not suggesting that there’s only one right way to diagnose and fix a problem, but they probably all have some commonalities. Moreover, different environments, applications, and countless other circumstances will influence any troubleshooting methods, so your particular circumstances might dictate something otherwise. Nonetheless, here’s an outline of my own thought process when approaching a computer problem.

User support problems usually fall into one of the following categories:

Hardware failure: This could actually be a failed component — a bad motherboard or hard drive, for example – or it could be a matter of an unplugged cable, a router or modem that needs to be recycled, or some other such thing.

Software issue: This would include the operating system, something affected by a Windows update, an application update, or an actual software bug.

User-created problem: These are usually of the unintentional variety where a user might inadvertently disable something, change something, delete something, and so on.

Training or documentation: Often times there is no real problem, per se, except for a lack of knowledge or understanding about something. In these cases, it might be that training is needed or documentation needs to be updated.

Outside vendor issue: As much as I hate hearing the buck being passed around from one support group to another, it’s sometimes real and justified. A custom software application or a supported piece of hardware might be experiencing some issues. High-end and high-output printing devices often fall into these categories. In my case, the support obligation usually ends at the printing or plotting device itself (except for low-end desktop printers), and short of restarting the unit, there isn’t much I can do to troubleshoot and fix the problem. Such units are seldom sold alone, and they almost always come with a use-and-support agreement.

One thing I always do, however, when calling on such outside support help is to make myself available to assist in whatever way necessary. I would never say (or seldom say), for example, this is your problem that you need to fix. But rather I’d approach it as a joint problem that we, together, need to address until the issue is resolved.

I try to identify into which category the problem falls as quickly as I can. It is possible, I suppose, for a problem to actually have two (or more) underlying reasons, which can make finding the solution even more of a challenge; and in such cases, the fixes would probably have to be addressed in that order — hardware first, then software (drivers, etc.), then user issues (configuration, etc.), followed by training or documentation. Nonetheless, I try to isolate the problem into one of those categories as quickly as possible.

Possible steps to seek a solution:

Reboot: Try this preferably before support is called. I actually had a user who posted a message to himself that he taped along the edge of his monitor: Reboot first, call Joe second. Of course, on one hand, there’s the situation where a reboot actually fixes a problem. On the other hand, however, requiring a reboot might really be a symptom of a deeper underlying problem. Rebooting once and being done with it is one thing, but if it becomes necessary to reboot too frequently to fix the same problem, then digging a little deeper to find the underlying problem would be required.

Replicate the problem or issue: Make the problem happen again, see the error message, etc. Experience the problem yourself to get a better feel.

Retrace user steps that led up to the problem: What did the user do immediately leading up to the problem? What was changed? What was installed (or uninstalled)? The answer is usually, “I did nothing different,” or something along those lines. But it’s amazing how often we actually can identify that something really was changed by simply asking questions of the user.

Device Manager: This is such a quick and easy way to get an overview of the hardware status. A quick look for the yellow or red warning tags might quickly identify the source of a problem.

Error logs: Like the Device Manager, the error logs might reveal the source and frequency of a problem.

Isolate the problem: Is it unique to this one computer, or are more people experiencing the same issue? For example, is it only one computer that can’t print versus all of them that can’t print?

Seek obvious solutions: Unplugged cords and cables are often the cause of a problem or failure. Sometimes the most simple and obvious solution is the hardest to see. I recall having received a support call telling me that a computer hard drive had failed, but upon further investigation I discovered that a prankster had put a floppy disk into another user’s floppy disk drive, and since the BIOS boot order was set as such, it was looking for a bootable floppy disk. Since floppy disks are used so seldom any more (in fact, many computers don’t even have floppy disk drives), it was an easy thing for the user to overlook.

There’s no one right way to troubleshoot all computer problems, and none of my outlined steps are necessarily in any correct order. But this is pretty much my own mind-set when I approach problems in my environments. Please share your own thoughts and comments. http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/helpdesk/how-to-troubleshoot-a-computer-problem/1023

Possible steps to seek a solution:

Reboot: Try this preferably before support is called. I actually had a user who posted a message to himself that he taped along the edge of his monitor: Reboot first, call Joe second. Of course, on one hand, there’s the situation where a reboot actually fixes a problem. On the other hand, however, requiring a reboot might really be a symptom of a deeper underlying problem. Rebooting once and being done with it is one thing, but if it becomes necessary to reboot too frequently to fix the same problem, then digging a little deeper to find the underlying problem would be required.

Replicate the problem or issue: Make the problem happen again, see the error message, etc. Experience the problem yourself to get a better feel.

Retrace user steps that led up to the problem: What did the user do immediately leading up to the problem? What was changed? What was installed (or uninstalled)? The answer is usually, “I did nothing different,” or something along those lines. But it’s amazing how often we actually can identify that something really was changed by simply asking questions of the user.

Device Manager: This is such a quick and easy way to get an overview of the hardware status. A quick look for the yellow or red warning tags might quickly identify the source of a problem.

Error logs: Like the Device Manager, the error logs might reveal the source and frequency of a problem.

Isolate the problem: Is it unique to this one computer, or are more people experiencing the same issue? For example, is it only one computer that can’t print versus all of them that can’t print?

Seek obvious solutions: Unplugged cords and cables are often the cause of a problem or failure. Sometimes the most simple and obvious solution is the hardest to see. I recall having received a support call telling me that a computer hard drive had failed, but upon further investigation I discovered that a prankster had put a floppy disk into another user’s floppy disk drive, and since the BIOS boot order was set as such, it was looking for a bootable floppy disk. Since floppy disks are used so seldom any more (in fact, many computers don’t even have floppy disk drives), it was an easy thing for the user to overlook.

There’s no one right way to troubleshoot all computer problems, and none of my outlined steps are necessarily in any correct order. But this is pretty much my own mind-set when I approach problems in my environments. Please share your own thoughts and comments. http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/helpdesk/how-to-troubleshoot-a-computer-problem/1023

and how to deal with Bullies.. abusers..   (1 Cor 13:1 KJV) Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJVGod himself clearly does not accept verbal, physical, or human rights abuses(Mat 18:6 KJV) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.(Mat 18:7 KJV) Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!(1 Tim 6:6 KJV) But godliness with contentment is great gain.(1 Tim 6:17 KJV) Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;(Psa 37:16 KJV) A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.I know that even demon inspired persons   will next face negative consequences cause so I am in the right asking them next  to repent of these their wrong doings undeniably too..Any Children of God even who are verbally abused they will next be also physically abused if the matter is not adequately dealt with ASAP Your Abusing others is a common reaction of the carnal flesh and is brought on by many different reasons such as 1: unfulfilled lusts or 2: a spoiled child syndrome who tries to get their own way by whatever method it can 3: sibling rivalry 4: people who have no or little moral values, respect of others 5: one’s parental influence and upbringing..6: demon possessed persons, etc. The devil, demons and demon seduced persons, professing Christian persons falsely, wrongfully take false delight in slandering, abusing, bashing others and their evident fruits of hatred alone The sad reality is abusers rarely change unless they are made personally to face some severe negative consequences, and the older they are the more severe it seems it has to be. So first you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others. Next God is fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing for decades too..ws how false they themselves now are too. they clearly had, do manifest the opposite of the fruit of the Holy Spirit which is love.(Mat 18:8 KJV) Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.(1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.(2 Tim 4:2 KJV) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

(Titus 1:13 KJV) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

(Titus 2:15 KJV) These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

(Heb 12:5 KJV) And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

Mat 5:22 KJV) But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

James 4:1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? :2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with

God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

I was really saddened to note that too many of the abuses I have witnessed were done by bad , greedy people trying to steal , then trying to get other people’s money for themselves, stealing the money, or getting it under false pretenses. The love of more money is still the basis of what many of the wrong doings is, was all about..

God does not at all not allow, accept any human rights, verbal and physical abuses and neither should we.. And Exemplary public exposure of the Bullies, abusers, the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest next too. God undeniably himself does not show false partialities . Shout the abuses, sins truth from the housetops..

Let me tell you we do not have to accept human rights abuse that is a lie of the devil.. in this world we have the same rights as the bully even the right to see that a bully is punished for abusing us.. God is not ignorant about the injustices inflicted upon his people, nor does he accept any of our human rights abuses without punishing the abusers shortly.. see the Bible book of Esther if you have doubts..

Est 9:25 But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/02/11/i-am-a-slave-to-no-man/

ISLAM WAS NVER A RELIGION OF PEACE  SO DEPORT RIGHTFULLY ALL MUSLIMS FROM CANADA,  ALL OF THEM as they support one another and are murderers.. their hatred of others lies deep within their hearts. Jews and the Muslims historically  false haters of Jesus Christ, Christmas so Justin Trudeau also sleeps with them.. The Arab Spring nations even don’t  ever grasp freedom of dissent, rights of others, freedom of religion.. Justin Trudeau is not at all a real Christian cause God does not murder,  kill, abort  Babies
.
- IMAGINE THAT RAPE IS STILL A MAJOR CRIME, TOO OFTEN DELIBERATELY NEGLECTED WORLD WIDE  BY THE POLICE FIRSTLY. Police rape woman in Tunisia, then charge her with indecency. But the Police threatening arrest  women in mini-skirt as they seem to encourage rapes  http://bbc.in/UoCTh4  the JUSTICE SYSTEN FALSELY  LIKES TO PROTECT EVEN THE BAD COPS STILL.

- Speeding is not the major cause of car, VEHICULAR accidents still but road rather, impaired, drink drivers are.. but collecting money making speeding and traffic tickets is the false Police priority.. RCMP  Money pit makes over 8 million dollars per year in traffic tickets catching people leaving Banff Park in Canmore,  Alberta. Cops too busy to catch  the criminals since they are spending their time on money making traffic tickets.  Most cops are alcoholics too so they avoid prosecuting drunk drivers? The bad apples do not fall far from the tree, bad police managers.. The highest officer in charge  should be held responsible to restore public confidence, http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/

NO GUN CONTROL IS MURDER. And  we see what it means for everyone crazy to carry guns in Israel, middle east  where here is never any peace as a result. It’s crazy to escalate the carrying of guns. yes someone should protect us from the NRA. They should reinstall prayer and the Bible in the schools  now too. Gun used in school shootings not banned in Canada http://cbc.sh/oqDM7Yh 
.
- Some of the biggest unprosecuted  tax evaders are the politicians, civil and public servants who abuse the tax payer’s monies.. They are Pirates. Major Corruption, stealing, tax evasions, and false denials have been going on everywhere  the last 50 years.. Follow the money trail, the oldest rule of journalism.. THE QUEBEC CORRUPTION MESS IS STILL JUST THE TIP OF A BIG iceberg.. Govern – less Montreal city hall: continues and the much too many Questionable dealings still are hidden from the public in Quebec .. now if the politicians would tell us where they spend their monies.. TOO MANY government ministers WASTING  taxpayer money.. as per the city of Laval, Montreal do  Terminate all of the existing councilors and replace them ASAP. You did not  have to be a mayor to know that Montreal city hall was corrupt for decades too;

.
-  The federal Government has a new hidden tax, service  fees.
.
- Revenue Quebec,  Revenue Canada and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada says are still  some  of the most ineffective departments.. at the years end many perverse governmental managers do wrongfully waste their excess budgets to get more next year.. Quebec’s anti-corruption squad,  UPAC,   seems still a little vague on where it was going in 2013. What it too has to be told as to what to do?
.
- MUHC, McGill issues,  amazing how many ostriches there cannot face, admit their own undeniable negative shortcomings.  even the Major Professional Corruptions, stealing, tax evasions, and their false denials .. Appropriate even university budget cuts are an essential fact of proper management .. Perverted MUHC professionals .We all rightfully  should expect a hospital like the MUHC to do better ..  Play on words…  McGill University says it s  is separate from MUHC but the McGill logo says otherwise  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/12/22/and-this-type-of-pervrsion-is-not-the-first-time-too/ …

and this type of perversion is not the first time too

ASSSMtl_NB

The McGill University Health Centre is an essential  part, a Montreal institution. The MUHC’s health services and medical quality cannot be allowed to degenerate . This is one medical institution that has to be watched  and further supervised at every opportunity. Our lives may depend on it. I myself had reported even in writing to the news media, governments,  as I had many times witnessed, that when a person had called at a clinic for an appointment at one of the MUHC hospitals, the secretaries there would inform them of 6 months delay but they would also tell the same patient that they could get a quicker response with the same doctors at their private clinics.. and this really is not free medicare but an unacceptable abuse of Medicare by money hungry greedy professionals

MONTREAL — The McGill University Health Centre and some of its physicians are  profiting from their involvement in a private Montreal-based company that sells  “quick” access to second medical opinions and therapeutic advice to patients in  Quebec and across Canada who have private insurance, The Gazette has  learned. “Our fast, efficient process helps cut the response time to a minimum,”  advertises the company, Medical Second Opinion, which runs a discrete operation.  “The shorter the wait, the lower your stress level.” The MUHC is paid royalties to allow its name to be used, and its physicians  are paid for providing written second opinions within as little as seven days in  a public health-care system where year-long waits for a first medical opinion  are not uncommon, and where second opinions are often harder to come by. The MUHC specialists do not examine the patients in person, but they do  review their medical files and provide a second opinion that can concur or  disagree with an original diagnosis. In 10 per cent of cases, the MUHC  physicians have offered a differing opinion and in 25 per cent of cases, they  recommend additional potentially life-saving therapeutic options that were not  available with the original diagnosis.  Michael Churchill-Smith, the medical director of Medical Second Opinion, said  the MUHC physicians do most of this work on their own time in the evenings and  on weekends, but he acknowledged that they might in rare instances do the  evaluations while working at the MUHC. Informed of The Gazette’s findings on Thursday, the province’s medicare board  announced Friday that it will investigate Medical Second Opinion and its ties to  the MUHC. “The business model of Medical Second Opinion … has raised questions and is  of concern to the Régie de l’assurance-maladie du Québec,” Marc Lortie, a  spokesman for RAMQ, wrote in an email to The Gazette after viewing the company’s  website. “We will carry out the necessary verifications to determine what this  (business model) is exactly and whether it respects the (Quebec) Health  Insurance Act.” That the MUHC, a public network of six hospitals, is promoting “fast” access  to the medical expertise of a private company is being denounced as a form of  queue-jumping and two-tier medicine by the Canadian Health Coalition, a group  that supports universal medicare. This is surreptitious two-tier health care to expedite access for people with  extra insurance,” said Michael McBane, national co-ordinator of the coalition.  “They think that the elites should have elite health care. It’s a fundamental  violation of the very core of the Canada Health Act.” MUHC officials insist that Medical Second Opinion is a private company that is  completely separate from the hospital network. However, The Gazette has  uncovered extensive links between the company and the MUHC.

.

Queue-jumping in the health system has gained national attention this month  after the Alberta government launched a public inquiry into allegations that the  province’s politicians and the well-connected were granted fast-track access to  care based on status rather than medical necessity. For McBane, of the Canadian Health Coalition, the MUHC partnership with  Medical Second Opinion suggests that the hospital network has lost its way. “There’s some kind of a corporate virus that has infected that renowned  medical institution and that needs to get cleaned out of there,” he said. “This  is a mentality that sees health care as an investment opportunity.” http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/MUHC+ties+advice+firm+investigated/7737265/story.html

Major Professional Corruption, stealing, tax evasions, and false denials have been going on everywhere In Quebec the   last 50 years and you did not have to be a mayor to know that Montreal city hall and even the Universities, Hospitals, police, News media, politicians too   have been now  corrupted  for decades too. No such thing even here as a little bit pregnant. Sadly a lot of this corruptions now involves professionals who respond falsely even with arrogance  and false denials when confronted rightfully with their wrong doings.. This Gravy train cannot go on and on.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/doctors-nurses-hospitals-triages-in-montreal-quebec/

The Federal government itself is unacceptably  doing a bad job looking after the citizens and these viable complaints, issues too.

doctors, nurses, hospitals, triages in Montreal, Quebec

MUHC

Major Professional Corruptions, stealing, tax evasions, and false denials have been going on everywhere In Quebec the  last 50 years and you did not have to be a mayor to know that Montreal city hall and even the Universities, Hospitals, police, News media, politicians too   have been now  corrupted  for decades too. No such thing even here as a little bit pregnant. Sadly a lot of this corruptions now involves professionals who respond falsely even with arrogance  and false denials when confronted rightfully with their wrong doings.. This Gravy train cannot go on and on The gravy train, Corruption Bubble had to burst some time too. Make also the crooks return that which was stolen now too,  and all those abusive even  Medical Doctors and Dentists should pay back all the University medical training costs of theirs too. All, all  cities, governments,  should fire their much too many useless civil and public servants, administrators, professionals  first who  abuse others, and who who travel abroad, commit tax evasions, steal tax dollars. What the  bad people  still got paid, even a bonus, severance pay,  and get a pension.. all unacceptable . And what about all of those bad civil and public servants, managers who waste their surplus budgets at year end so they can be insured of even more money next year. All Unacceptable.

Let me be clear I rightfully am no fan of bad, lying, pretentious, incompetent professionals , doctors, dentists, lawyers, even if they have graduated from the Montreal McGill University etc. A university degree does not insure one is a better, moral  person still, not even for pastors ehh.. Just cause some ignorant ostriches supports any institution for being supposedly good in the last 20 years does not make it right too, for I personally do have had plenty of negative experiences dealing with doctors, nurses, hospitals, triages, civil and public servants  in Montreal and I can rightfully witness of their  negative realities too .  
.
I here have rightfully made complaints  even in writing, even as posted on this  internet,  even against 5 McGill Hospitals.. the Montreal Jewish General, the Royal Victoria Hospital, the Montreal lakeshore General Hospital, the Verdun Hospital and I have yet even to have one Hospital Ombudsmen proper  response to them. This poor  responses on their parts is really also unacceptable.

“A plague of arrogance, blundering and profligacy keeps spreading among the  city’s universities. First, UQAM’s planned new Voyageur campus became a  real-estate fiasco. Then Université de Montréal has continued to fail to justify  its dream of an even bigger, billion-dollar campus. And now McGill suffers from  the disease. (Concordia’s over-the-top perks and severance payments to bosses  qualify only as bad flu, not plague.)What we already knew a few weeks ago about McGill was alarming enough.  Quebec’s anti-corruption squad, UPAC, had arrested  the former head of construction giant SNC-Lavalin on suspicion of fraud in  landing the MUHC’s superhospital contract. Police had started checking whether  the MUHC’s former director-general, Arthur  Porter, was involved. And police had begun exploring whether the MUHC’s  former human-resources director, Stella  Lopreste, had used her expense account for more than $1 million in  unjustified personal spending.But this week’s report for Quebec’s health ministry goes much further. It  doesn’t just allege or suspect dubious behaviour. It declares it to be fact.”  Play on words …  McGill University says it   is separate from MUHC but the McGill logo says otherwise

According to new study, four of Canada’s worst hospitals, are in Quebec. They were Verdun Hospital, St. Jerome Regional, the Pavillion St. Joseph in Trois-Rivieres and the Health and Social Services Centre in Gatineau—the last has the highest death rate across the country http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/according-to-new-study-four-of-canada-s-worst-hospitals-are-in-quebec-1.1079004

We should expect a hospital like the MUHC to do better//QUEBEC — Dr. Réjean Hébert, Quebec’s health minister, expected the McGill  University Health Centre would do better at managing its operations and  respecting its budget.“McGill is a high-quality institution,” Hébert said in a telephone interview  Tuesday. “We should be able to expect  http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/should+expect+hospital+like+MUHC+should+better/7717192/story.html …

Mismanaged MUHC at a loss to explain excessive labour costs or anything else it seems //MONTREAL – Employees who worked a total of 629,000 hours for the McGill  University Health Centre since 2009 were actually paid for nearly 900,000 hours,  according to a government-commissioned report.Excessive labour costs is one of the main causes of the projected “realistic”  $115-million deficit of the MUHC in 2012-13, concludes the report by Dr. Michel  Baron, former dean of medicine at the Université de Sherbrooke.Baron was appointed head of a committee in September to comb through the  MUHC’s books after the provincial government discovered that the hospital  network’s finances were considerably worse than known.Baron said that none of the 629,000 work hours was authorized in any of the  MUHC’s budgets. http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/MUHC+loss+explain+excessive+labour+costs/7722960/story.html …

MUHC poor management, bad accounting practices leads to $53M budget crunch? No surprise.. //McGill University Health Centre will soon be feeling the pinch after a  damning government report revealed Tuesday the hospital network couldn’t account  for more than 800,000 hours in unauthorized pay, among other issues.There are serious questions being raised about how the public funds at the  network of six hospitals have been spent since 2009.“They didn’t go by the rules that are in the system to really manage the  situation the budget or even the purchase of buildings,” said Danielle McCann of  Health and Social Services Montreal. http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/muhc-facing-53m-budget-crunch-1.1083911 …

Quebec to appoint financial monitor at MUHC and it is about time too //   The Quebec government is appointing a monitor to oversee the financial management of the McGill University Health Centre, in light of a damning report released Tuesday that shows the MUHC’s deficit for 2012-13 could hit $115 million. The 40-page report on the MUHC’s governance and financial management, commissioned by Health Minister Réjean Hébert last September, shows the hospital administration has been downplaying the extent of its financial difficulties.  http://cbc.sh/C7vpIGb

Realy Now! PM Harper, Canada government has remained uncharacteristically muted to the false Israeli expansion that undermines peace hopes

.
Too bad still that  both the Jews and Arabs falsely, deliberately, equally do refuse to live in peace! and cannot forgive one another but demand an eye for an eye.. more hatred..  Asking all of us taking sides in a much more complex issue over them living in peace, their false religious wars are also here.. and they do  too often falsely demand, want to enforce their one side rules upon all of the others.. Less any one gets lost, there are Good Jews, Good Arabs, good Americans, good Canadians and bad ones too.   But it seems both Jews and Arabs are equally guilty of hate, unforgiveness, revenge, theft, murder, an eye for an eye approach  so we can really not support either side as being mainly in the right. Isn’t it nice that I can still choose who my friends are and I can still choose to still know the real truths..

Christian Zionists are believed to number around 40 or 50 million in the United States. The movement’s support for Israel derives from a desire for the return of Jesus on earth, which many Christian Zionists falsely do say can only happen if Jews are returned to the Holy Land. Therefore, supporting Israel is a necessary part to many Christian Zionists’ faith. This has led well-known evangelical leaders, like John Hagee and Pat Robertson, to falsely label those opposed to Israeli policies as enemies. Analysts say this ideology has made its way into the US government, and has been influencing US policy, most recently with their opposition to Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary. Christian Zionists have also supported the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and have called for a war with Iran. –

“I  am glad to commend Stephen Sizer’s ground-breaking critique of Christian Zionism.  His comprehensive overview of its roots, its theological basis and its political  consequences is very timely. I myself believe that Zionism, both political and  Christian, is incompatible with biblical faith. Stephen’s book has helped to reinforce  this conviction.”  http://www.cc-vw.org/articles/reviews.htm

IS NOTHING SACRED ANY MORE AND WHEN WILL IT ALL END!

FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL,  THE QUEBEC CORRUPTION MESS IS STILL JUST THE TIP OF A BIG ICEBERG TOO.. AND CORRUPTION EXISTS IN OTHER PLACES  SUCH AS IN THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENTS, AND WHAT HAS ALSO BEEN JUST AS DEPRESSING IS HOW LITTLE THE LAST 50 YEARS NOW TOO THE FEDERAL, PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS, THE POLICE, THE RCMP THEY ALL MOSTLY STILL  DID NOTHING GOOD ABOUT IT ALL TOO.. THEY ALL SEEM TO HAVE THEIR SHARE OF CORRUPTIONS , EXPENSE ACCOUNTS ABUSES.

They may be out of a job, but three disgraced Quebec politicians received tens of thousands of dollars in taxpayer-funded golden handshakes since leaving their government jobs. http://www.torontosun.com/2012/12/01/disgraced-quebec-politicians-showered-in-taxpayer-cash

“The symbol of Quebec’s high-tech know-how, the computer industry, took  a hit from the province’s interim auditor-general, Michel Samson, this week.  He said computer companies, many of which are Montreal based, exercise only  “weak competition” for the half-billion dollars in contracts that the province  lavishes on computerization in a typical year. They also benefit from hefty cost  overruns. Sound familiar?

Although Samson found no evidence of collusion or corruption (that’s not his  job), he recommends that the provincial committees that review bids demonstrate  “more neutrality.”

Finally, the federal agency that oversees one of Montreal’s top  tourist draws, the Old Port, took an even stronger hit. The federal government, the Old Port’s owner, said  Thursday it will abolish the Old Port Corp. and hand management of the site to  Canada Lands Co., an agency with little expertise in running such a site. Public  Works Minister Rona Ambrose said she was considering the change even before last  spring’s headlines about expense-account abuse by the Old Port’s CEO, Claude  Benoît. But Ambrose also said she was making the change in the interest of “good  governance” — something the Old Port Corp. evidently could not provide.

What makes this week’s developments all the more discouraging, of course, is  that they are hardly isolated. Several other prominent Quebec-based global  engineering companies besides SNC-Lavalin have had their integrity strongly  questioned. As well, police are investigating not only the McGill real-estate  transaction but also one involving the Université  de Montréal and Catania. And so far as federal bodies go, the Montreal  office of Canada Revenue Agency has been shown to be riddled with officials in  bed with tax cheaters.

So a grey cloud also hangs over the McGill University Health Centre, a  symbol of the anglophone community’s ongoing place in Quebec. Duhaime’s fraud  charge involves his successful effort to land the contract for the MUHC’s  $1.3-billion hospital.

Authorities have not stated the specifics of the accusation, so the nature of  the MUHC’s involvement is uncertain. However, La  Presse reported on Oct. 1 that police are investigating whether SNC-Lavalin  made an irregular payment of $22.5 million to get the contract in 2010; it  also said police are looking into whether Dr. Arthur Porter, the head of the  MUHC until a year ago, was involved.

In a separate development this week, a document that the Charbonneau inquiry  made public shows that Yanaï  Elbaz, who quit the MUHC last year as its associate director general, has  kept curious company: He met 11 times since 2007 at the exclusive 357c club with  Paolo Catania, the construction honcho who has been charged with fraud in  connection with another major project involving public money, Faubourg  Contrecoeur. http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Aubin+will+mayor+this+mess/7635816/story.html

.

MERE FALSE PROMISES AGAIN TOO

Rinfret made the disclosure after Claudio Bussandri, chairman of the board of directors of the MUHC, announced on Monday that the health network’s audit committee “is taking steps to ensure our policies and procedures related to contracting and procurement reflect best practices.” http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/MUHC+director+Normand+Rinfret+questioned+UPAC+investigators/7646010/story.html#ixzz2E34GW4Tg

 Education does not insure morality Nor are professionals generally  better persons over others as any wise persons knows that there are plenty of immoral cops, realtors, lawyers, nurses, doctors now too.

Promised past Accountability and Transparency were mere election gimmicks now too.. A bad Liberal is just as bad as a bad Conservative always as well. So who is being fooled by all this? The liars do only mostly fool  themselves as to who and what they really are.

NOW REALLY WHAT DOES “ENSURE OUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES RELATED TO CONTRACTING AND PROCUREMENT REFLECT BEST PRACTICES” MEAN? WHEN IT IS UNDEFORCED TOO OFTEN. AND BEST PRACTICES FOR WHOM? THE HOSPITAL, THE DIRECTOR, THE GOVERNMENT, OR THE PEOPLE? OR THE CROOKS STILL? ALL THIS STILL IT MEANS NOTHING IF YOU ARE STILL STEALING AND COOKING THE BOOKS LIKE MANY OTHERS ARE DOING? IT STILL DOESN’T MEAN THAT THE PROCESS HAS INTEGRITY OR IS DEVOID OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES? WHEN IN REALITY NO ONE FALSELY REPORTS THE CRIMINAL; ACTIVITIES STILL AND WHITE COLLARED CRIME IS STILL COVERED UP NO ONE GOES TO JAIL..
