CRH Medical Joins Preventing Colorectal Cancer Membership



Not-for-profit advocacy organization Preventing Colorectal Cancer (PCC) is pleased to welcome CRH Medical to its membership. Founded in 2008, PCC’s mission is to educate the public and key stakeholders about the opportunities to reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer through regular screening and care options for patients and clinicians.

PCC strongly believes that a cancer prevented is better than a cancer cured, and the importance of prevention must not be underestimated. The organization, which is comprised of clinical thought leaders such as gastroenterologists, anesthesiologists and executive officers and founders of Ambulatory Surgery Centers, recognizes and supports colonoscopy as the Gold Standard colorectal cancer screening method.

“PCC’s mission to reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer by promoting optimal screening aligns with CRH Medical’s mission to deliver only the highest quality of services to both patients and facilities alike,” says CRH Medical’s CEO, Edward Wright. “We fully support PCC’s deep commitment to high-quality screening and look forward to our involvement with the organization.”

According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer found in men and women in the United States (not counting skin cancers), and it is estimated that 49,700 people will die from this deadly disease in 2015. Another key cornerstone of PCC is to ensure the ongoing integrity and effectiveness of how health care professionals help screen for and treat colorectal cancer and other conditions. This includes making sure providers are fairly reimbursed for the services they offer.

“Together, we can make a difference in redefining the standard of care, campaigning for transparency in reimbursement methodologies and fighting for the coverage of sedation during colonoscopies,” notes PCC Treasurer, Mark Casner. “We applaud CRH Medical for joining PCC in this fight.”

Nine Tips for Eco Friendly Pest Control in the Garden this Summer



Floating row covers allow air, light and water through, but prevent insects like bean beetles and cabbage worms from reaching and damaging the plants.


Spots on tomatoes, holes in hosta leaves and wilting stems mean insects and diseases have moved into the garden. “Don’t let these intruders reduce the beauty and productivity of your landscape,” says Melinda Myers, host of The Great Courses “How to Grow Anything” DVD. Working in concert with nature to prevent and control these pests will provide gardeners with a bountiful harvest and landscape filled with beautiful blooms. Myers suggests taking these eco friendly pest control measures to manage unwanted pests this season.


Monitor. Taking regular walks through the landscape is not only good exercise, but it will improve a gardener’s mood and any problems will be discovered earlier when easier to control. Look for discolored leaves, spots, holes and wilting. Inspect the underside of the leaves and along the stems to uncover the cause of the problem.

Identify. Once a problem is discovered, identify the culprit. The local extension service, garden center or reliable internet resource can help. Once identified, plan the best way to manage the culprit.

Invite the Good Guys. Toads, lady beetles and birds help control many garden pests. Attract them to the garden by planting herbs and flowers to attract beneficial insects, adding a house for the toads, and birdbath for songbirds. Avoid using pesticides and learn to tolerate a bit of damage. A few aphids or caterpillars will bring in the ladybeetles, lacewings, birds and toads that are looking for a meal.

Clean up. Many insects and diseases can be managed and prevented with a bit of garden cleanup. A strong blast of water from the garden hose will dislodge aphids and mites, reducing their damage to a tolerable level. Or knock leaf-eating beetles and other larger insects off the plants and into a can of soapy water.

Pick off discolored leaves, prune off diseased stems and destroy. Be sure to disinfect tools with a 70% alcohol or one part bleach to nine parts water solution between cuts. This will reduce the risk of spreading the disease when pruning infected plants.

Adjust care. Reduce the spread and risk of further problems by adjusting maintenance strategies. Avoid overhead and nighttime watering that can increase the risk of disease. Use an organic nitrogen fertilizer like Milorganite which encourages slow steady growth that is less susceptible to insect and disease attacks.

Mulch the soil with shredded leaves, evergreen needles or woodchips. This will keep roots cool and moist during drought, improve the soil as they decompose, and also prevent soil borne diseases from splashing onto and infecting the plants.

Non-chemical Controls. If the problems continue, try some non-chemical options for insects. A yellow bowl filled with soapy water can attract aphids, a shallow can filled with beer and sunk in the ground will manage slugs, and crumpled paper under a flower pot for earwigs are just a few ways to trap and kill these pests.

Or cover the plants with floating row covers. These fabrics allow air, light and water through, but prevent insects like bean beetles and cabbage worms from reaching and damaging the plants.

Organic products. Organic products like insecticidal soap, Neem, horticulture oil and Bacillus thuringiensis can be used to control specific pests. And even though these are organic, they are designed to kill insects or disease organisms, so be sure to read and follow label directions carefully.

Take Note. Make notes on the problems and solutions in this season’s garden. Refer to the notes next year to insure a better job of monitoring and managing garden pests throughout the growing season. And when shopping for new plants, select the right plant for the location and choose resistant varieties whenever possible.

A little eco-friendly gardening can go a long way in creating beautiful and productive gardens.

SunGard K-12 Educations eSchoolPLUS 4.0 Named Best of Show at ISTE 2015 by Tech & Learning





eSchoolPLUS 4.0 features responsive design.


SunGard K-12 Education’s eSchoolPLUS 4.0 was named one of the Best of Show by Tech & Learning at the 2015 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference and Expo, which was held in Philadelphia, Pa. The next-generation student information system was called a game-changer by a team of experienced educational technology advisers who reviewed new products being released at this respected international conference.

On the first day of ISTE 2015, Tech & Learning advisers, who are professional end users and editors of educational technology, scoured the show floor to investigate the latest and greatest technology solutions for K-12 education. The judges rated their impressions and then selected those technologies that have the potential to have the most impact in the classroom.

The next-generation student information system, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 is a forward-thinking solution for student information management that helps educators directly and positively impact student achievement. This latest version of the solution amplifies SunGard K-12 Education’s award-winning student information system with a smart user interface and a variety of features that promote collaboration.

According to Joel Hames, SunGard K-12 Education’s vice president of product, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 delivers on the vision of bringing a highly elegant solution with user-focused interactivity to schools. “With recent advances and increasing options in technology, today’s educator relies on a broad spectrum of devices and browsers to access their web applications,” says Hames. “eSchoolPLUS 4.0 meets educators where they are by leveraging the latest technology to create a progressive, highly usable, and forward-thinking solution for student achievement.”

With HTML5 as its core technology, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 offers the same application and user experience across any browser and choice of PC, Mac®, Chromebook™ notebook computer, and iPad® or other tablet. SunGard K-12 believes eSchoolPLUS 4.0 sets a new standard for usability with features including responsive design, advanced navigation tools, and mobile-first design concepts, such as tablet-friendly icons and pages and gesture-friendly screens. The result is a very friendly user experience, regardless of which of the multitude of devices and browsers educators and administrators are using to access this web-based application.

This solution also provides advanced tools and at-a-glance insights that promote collaboration between administrators, teachers, parents, and students. Highly customizable smart search functionality throughout the software puts ad-hoc reporting capabilities at the fingertips of educators. And, with SunGard K-12’s hallmark PLUS 360 Notifications, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 mines student data to help increase user efficiency by allowing educational stakeholders to choose to be automatically alerted when certain events occur or criteria are met.

For Hames, these new features, along with eSchoolPLUS 4.0’s well-received standards-based gradebook, create a solution that is very responsive to the needs of today’s educator. “With this transition, we’ve taken a very stable, proven, reliable workhorse of a student information system and transformed it with advances that our customers and others have said will make a real difference in education,” he says. “We’re pleased that the Tech & Learning advisers agree that this next-generation student information system can be a game-changer for K-12 education and support educators in doing the incredibly important work they do for this nation’s children.”

How To Help IVF Work Better

If you are planning IVF, you will naturally want to do everything possible to improve the chances of a successful outcome. If you would like to know how to help IVF work better, there are a number of positive steps you can take. IVF requires a huge investment both in financial and emotional terms and you should do everything possible to help the process.

Dietary Changes

One of the simplest steps you can both take is to improve your diet. For conception to occur, it is important that sperm is healthy and that the woman’s body is fit for implantation. Eating a poor diet can have a negative effect on the reproductive health of both parties. You should aim to eat organic foods wherever possible and try to stay away from sugar, refined carbohydrates and trans-fats. You should include small quantities of lean meats or other low fat proteins. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouting beans and wholegrains. To help IVF work better, your doctor might also recommend a pre-natal supplement for both you and your partner. Keeping hydrated is also very important for both healthy sperm and the development of healthy eggs so drinking 2 liters of filtered water each day is also recommended.

Stress Management

If you are wanting to know how to help IVF work better, one of the “invisible” detractors from implantation success is stress. It is well-known that high stress levels can affect hormonal balance and interfere with egg production. If you lead a busy life, managing stress can be difficult. However, it is vital that you take this seriously and pinpoint the areas of your life which are stressful and try to take positive steps to alleviate this by thinking about what helps you relax, be it reading, having a massage or simply going out with your partner. Not only can relaxation help you become more fertile, but you will feel better about yourself at what is a difficult time.

Exercise

Think “gentle” rather than “strenuous”. Exercising to excess can have a detrimental effect on fertility in general. Suitable forms are walking, tai-chi or yoga. The right kind of exercise can improve blood flow to the reproductive organs which can improve fertility.

Alternative Therapies

Some alternative therapies can help IVF work better. For example, acupuncture can help to improve the supply of blood to the uterus, which, in turn, improves the quality of the lining. It can also increase the quantity of eggs. Acupuncture is believed to counteract the side effects of Lupron.

If you would like further comprehensive information on how to help IVF work better, you might like to consider taking a look at the program, The Full Embrace.

Specifically designed to teach you exactly what to do before in vitro fertilization, this program will help dramatically improve your chances of becoming pregnant with just one cycle, using techniques which are scientifically proven to work.

Elena writes on a range of issues relating to female health and fertility.

Actual iD Joins ADP Marketplace to Offer Cloud-based Time & Attendance to Help Companies Simplify Time Tracking and Improve Payroll Processes


TORONTO, ON (PRWEB) June 18, 2015

Actual iD today announced the availability of its cloud-based time and attendance application on ADP® Marketplace to help companies simplify time tracking, absence management and improve the efficiency of payroll processes.

Cloud-based time and attendance from Actual iD joins an ever-growing lineup of critical HCM and business applications that enable employers to optimize decision-making by seamlessly integrating workforce data across their company through secure ADP application programming interfaces (APIs).

“One in six businesses uses ADP for payroll service. We are fortunate to be able to partner with an organization of this stature. Together ADP and Actual iD are providing a simpler, more comprehensive HCM solution offered to a broad spectrum of ADP customers,” said David Sanderson, Actual iD Executive Vice-President. “Our cloud-based time and attendance application is truly a complimentary technology to ADP’s payroll solutions. With Actual iD, ADP customers will be able to more efficiently and accurately track employee work time, absences and easily transfer this data to payroll, eliminating any errors common with manual data entry or manual transfers from one system to the other.”

Actual iD’s cloud-based application for time and attendance includes fingerscan time clocks which eliminates the potential for time theft or buddy punching – resulting in immediate payroll cost reductions over and above efficiency gains in the payroll process. Actual iD works with a business’ unique requirements for scheduling, managing overtime, dealing with exceptions and providing alerts through real-time visibility of staff. Use it to track busy service departments, manufacturing floors, reception, administration, sales, and manage employees in a single building or across multiple locations in a business. The application goes beyond time and attendance management to include HR functionality to effectively manage vacations and sick time as well as compliance with state or provincial labor laws for issues like mandatory breaks and overtime that vary regionally.

ADP Marketplace is a new cloud-based app store designed to help employers dynamically manage an ecosystem of enterprise applications from ADP and world-class partners. This enables companies of all sizes to extend the value of their workforce solutions seamlessly across their entire organizations via a secure, single-sign-on process.

According to the ADP Research Institute®, the typical large company operates more than 31 separate HR applications and 33 payroll systems*. Many HR systems currently lack the ability to share workforce data with each other – and other core business systems. Today’s constantly evolving business environment requires a digital enterprise application shopping experience and seamless data integration capabilities across solutions to drive meaningful business productivity.

“Many companies struggle to integrate core HCM and business applications. ADP Marketplace empowers employers to overcome that challenge so they can focus on boosting their business agility and their employees’ success,” said Don Weinstein, Senior Vice President, Product Management, ADP. “Actual iD’s clients can access pre-integrated workforce data in real-time through one intuitive platform while tapping into a growing ecosystem of trusted HCM apps to meet their evolving business needs.”

ADP Marketplace continues to add new HCM applications to meet the business community’s current and future needs. To learn more about ADP Marketplace, visit marketplace.adp.com. To access Actual iD on the ADP Marketplace, visit https://marketplace.adp.com/apps/27885#!overview.

Efficient Hemorrhoid Treatment- How To Make It Work

An effective hemorrhoid treatment consists of effective ingredients. After all, how good a treatment is, is limited to how good its components are. As simple as it sounds, lots of folks don’t seem to get this concept; or they choose not to pay it out of their mind. All ingredients, within a hemorrhoid remedy, should fulfill a certain purpose. When attempting to judge whether, or not, a particular treatment for hemorrhoids is going to be effective, look for these ingredients:

The first component to look for will be witch hazel. This particular natural herb is actually becoming more and more typical for acne and also bee stings. It could be found at your regional superstore. It is generally an anti-inflammatory substance and will bring comfort to anything that is swollen. Since hemorrhoids are inflamed in or around your anus, witch hazel is an important element for any fissure treatment.The second element that any remedy for hemorrhoids should contain is white oak bark. This herb is similar to aspirin except that it is natural. This means it is a pain killer as well as can really help to diminish the soreness that is felt from the ailment one is suffering with. It also helps to stop internal bleeding which is a necessary component of any hemorrhoid treatment.

Butcher’s broom is a very powerful herbal ingredient that has been used in natural medications for about two thousand years. Its main function is to make the circulatory system run more efficiently. This helps the particular blood to flow more freely and transport the necessary oxygen into the blood vessels and the needless waste out of the blood vessels. After all, when blood circulates properly into and out of the veins, the cleaner the arteries are. And the cleaner the arteries, the freer the veins will be from inflammation and irritation. In other words, your veins will be more elastic and healthier, which is what you want out of a properly functioning circulatory system.Stone root is yet another very popular ingredient that is used in hemorrhoid treatments. One of the biggest problems with piles is the fact that the actual veins are dealing with so much strain. Stone root helps to relieve the pressure. When vein pressure is actually relieved, the problematic veins get a chance to recoup. Circulation likewise becomes an easier job which means that the problem should soon be fixed. In short, less pressure means less likelihood that the condition will worsen, or even develop in the first instance.

Ginger functions as another anti-inflammatory ingredient that serves numerous purposes. For example, not only is it great for boosting circulation, it is a wonderful cleansing agent for the circulatory system and, indeed, for the whole body.The last component is the most important and is cayenne. No hemorrhoid therapy would be complete without this element because it speeds up the blood flow as opposed to any other element. This will help the body to discard the waste material and help it to absorb the nutrients better. Most of the individual ingredients listed in this article have been explained. The most important aspect to remember is that a hemorrhoid treatment is incomplete without natural and powerful healing components.

If you often use Run to run application, you should know that Windows XP always writes in registry called MRU (Most Recently Used). You can access it by clicking drop down arrow near Open text box.

MRU list is made in order to open the same application in the next session easily. But it will be difficult if  the list contains so many listed applications that it’s hard for you to find the desired application. Fortunately, there is a simple way to clean MRU list.

Run Regedit.exe.
Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU.
Right-click on RunMRU and select Export.
Name it as Clear Run MRU, click Save and close Regedit.exe.

Delete all of path keys.
Save and close Notepad.
Reboot Windows  or Log off.

Everytime you want to clean MRU list, just double-click Clear Run MRU.reg file.

Turn Off  Windows Messenger.

Windows Messenger automatically runs because of Outlook Express Program or another Microsoft web page. If you have already used MSN Messenger for chatting or video conferencing, you may not need  to use Windows Messenger anymore. That is why it needs to be removed from startup.

Open Run dialog box by pressing [Windows]+R or from Start-Run.
Type inside the dialog box: “Gpedit.msc and click OK to run Group Policy Editor.
Open Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Windows Messenger.

When we work in Local Area Network, usually we use “Map Network Drive” instruction to mark our drives with letters. For example: C for Local Disk, D for disk partition, or maybe H for our Network Neigbourhood’s drive. We can use letter to access folder location too. Why bother do several clicks to access folder location, if there’s a simple way just by doing double click. There are many Windows users who don’t realize this. We can use an old DOS instruction called SUBST.

Open Command Prompt from Start-All Programs-Accessories-Command Prompt.
Type: SUBST x: C:\[pathname]\[foldername], where “x” is virtual drive letter and “[pathname]\foldername]” is completed path you choose. An example: SUBST Z: C:\Windows\Fonts. Now, you can access Fonts Music folder just simply by clicking Z letter.

To delete a substituted (virtual) drive:

  SUBST Z: /D

Make Instant Restore Point

Usually you make restore point manually by clicking Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. Then, you will follow the wizard. There is an instant way just by hitting one click. All you need to do is making two lines simple VBScript by using WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) to access Class SystemRestore and to make Restore Point.

Run Notepad.
Type in the first line: Set IRP = getobject(“winmgmts:\.\root\default:Systemrestore”)
Type in the second line: MYRP = IRP.createrestorepoint (“My Restore Point”, 0, 100).
Save the file as InstantRestorePoint.vbs.

Every time you want to make Restore Point, just double-click on the file.

Olaf Siemens Appointed CEO at OpenSky Corporation


Tolland, Conn. and Cologne, Germany (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

OpenSky Corporation, an independent IT consulting firm focused on Transformational IT Infrastructure, Security and Compliance, announced today the appointment of Olaf Siemens to CEO. Current president and CEO Roger Levasseur will assume the role of Chief Customer Officer, effective immediately.

Siemens (47) is Global Vice President of Information Security since 2012 and Executive Vice President of the global Business Stream ICT & Business Solutions at TÜV Rheinland since January 2015, based in Cologne, Germany. He has more than 25 years of IT experience, predominantly working with international companies. His early positions include nearly a decade at Siemens AG, where he founded and managed the e-business and cyber security departments. In the late 1990s, he founded his own e-business consulting firm that later merged with Gauss Interprise AG to become a leading provider of web content management.

Before coming to TÜV Rheinland, Siemens served as CTO at Utimaco, a leading provider of disk, file, and mail encryption products, where he built the U.S. Research and Development facility and managed that company’s integration after it was acquired by Sophos plc. Siemens had also served on the board of two publicly traded companies.

“I am extremely honored to become even more involved with OpenSky,” Siemens said. “We have a unique opportunity ahead to help large companies migrate their IT into the cloud and assure IT security across their operations. The IT landscape is changing faster than ever, and I am excited to develop our business accordingly in the USA, the worldwide most important and largest market for IT and cybersecurity.”

Based in Tolland, Connecticut, OpenSky helps large enterprises streamline IT infrastructures, protect information assets and accelerate the adoption of strategic technologies. In 2014, OpenSky was acquired by TÜV Rheinland to better serve the US IT security market.

“When I made my decision to step aside, the OpenSky board and senior leadership knew fairly early on the benefits Olaf would bring,” said current OpenSky president and previous CEO Roger Levasseur. “His industry knowledge and expertise, including knowing the OpenSky business from day one of TÜV Rheinland’s involvement, made the decision to appoint him to this role a real ‘win-win’ for us. I am confident his leadership will strengthen OpenSky’s industry-leading service offerings and strategically position the company for the future.”

The new CEO Olaf Siemens took the opportunity to thank his predecessor Roger Levasseur for his service during the last years and his “outstanding contribution to making OpenSky a leading provider in the IT services and cyber security space.” Siemens: “I am very glad that he will continue to play a very important role in the further development of OpenSky as our Chief Customer Officer. This role will include the management of some strategic accounts, vertical sales and customer advocacy programs. On some of these matters he will work closely with the BDMs who continue to report into the regions.”

How to Work More Efficiently in Your Internet Marketing Business

The story goes like this: I work all day in my job, come home and work even more hours on my internet business while neglecting my spouse and kids. How can I work more efficiently so I don’t lose my mind and become a stranger to my family and friends?

This is a common problem that creates feelings of being overwhelmed and ultimately burnout and quitting.  The solution is rather simple, but not always apparent. Efficiency is a skill – learned like any other skill.

It starts with awareness. Become aware of where you are spending your time and energy with your internet business.

For the next week or two, keep a record of all the tasks and how much time spent on each of them. Pay attention to patterns.  Are there tasks you could outsource, like article writing?  Which activities are making you money and which are just a waste of time?

A huge time waster for many people is incessantly checking email several times a day.  A good habit to adapt is to check and respond to emails at set times each day. Preferably no more than 2 or 3 times a day.

Studies have shown that distractions or jumping from one task to another creates huge inefficiencies.  Creating a routine and setting aside blocks of time without distractions will make you much more efficient. Have a plan that has you work on the most important things first. Those would be the ones that are money makers. Also, always try to finish a task before moving onto the next.

 A good rule of thumb is to set aside at least an hour – preferably 2 hour blocks of uninterrupted time to focus on a task.  It can often take up to 20 minutes to get back to where you left off if you are distracted in the middle of a project.

Close your email servers and turn off your phone ringers and let anyone in your home know that this is your working time.

Also, spend your time on what makes the most money for the least effort. This will help you start outsourcing tasks sooner than later. Picture this, you come home from work and have a few hours to spend on your internet business.  You notice you spend 2 hours writing articles that generate traffic for your business.  It is a money making task, and one that eventually can be outsourced to free up your time to work on other money generating tasks.

You could have someone else write your articles so that you can spend the time you would’ve spent writing the article yourself to syndicating and repurposing those articles to leverage your time and exposure.

When I say re purposing, I mean, that article could also be tweaked into a blog post, a video, an audio, a pod cast, etc. Syndicating is submitting it to video and article aggregators like digg, tube mogul and the like.

If you get nothing else out of this article, remember the two words, Awareness and Focus. Efficiency takes time to get good at, but the reward is so worth it.
