Digital Signage Scoop: There’s A Lot More Going On At School Than The Three Rs

As the summer rapidly comes to a close, young children, adolescents and young adults prepare to return to school to resume their education.

While that annual ritual continues much in same way it has my entire life, many other aspects of the school experience are different. For instance, why should a student learn the Dewey Decimal System when there’s Google and the Internet? Remember that distinct smell and soggy feel of newly mimeographed tests? A relic of a bygone era. How about recesses filled with competitive games of soccer, kickball or basketball? Is it even OK to have winners and losers anymore?

Here’s another you’re sure to remember: The disembodied voice of the principal emanating from a small speaker on the wall filling the classroom with various announcements. That, pardon the pun, is old school. It’s gone -or at least augmented by technologies like student-run TV production and digital signage.

While it’s not surprising that digital signage is replacing outmoded methods of communications around schools, what some might find shocking is the scope of digital signage deployments on campuses. According to an article published in ecampusnews.com in July, some 1,500 campuses added digital signage last year, and an additional 2,200 campuses are forecasted to do the same in 2011.

Digital signs at elementary schools, high schools and on the campuses of colleges and universities are used for a variety of applications, including -but not limited to:

* Informational: Where bulletin boards, lockers and even telephone poles on campus were once covered with fliers recruiting students for activities, advertising a new band on tour or conveying some other piece of important news, digital signs are offering a more attractive way to get the message out more quickly and easily.

* Wayfinding: Frequently visitors to a college campus or even a massive high school don’t know how to get where they want to go. Digital signs not only can greet visitors, but also make it easy to find a gymnasium, theater or even an auditorium where voting in a local or national election is being conducted.

* Menu boards: With digital signage, controlling the display of what’s for lunch at the school cafeteria becomes consistent and less labor intensive, if deployed across an entire school district. Think of the manual steps that must be taken to use the old plastic lettering -repeated over and over again across the district. Then there is simplifying the steps to coordinate this huge dance.

* Create ambience: Some school districts and universities use digital signage to create a desired environment. For example, one Midwestern high school honors program focused on business education relies on a digital sign outside each classroom to showcase the work of students and to give them a place to make special presentations. The digital signs, thus, are both functional and instrumental in creating the desired look and feel the school district desires.

* Emergency alerts: Displays on a digital signage network makes informing faculty, staff and students of potential severe weather and other emergency situations quick and easy.

So, here’s the scoop: These digital signage applications are transforming how many different communications tasks are being fulfilled in educational settings. Digital signs are replacing outmoded approaches while at the same time making it easier to communicate an effective message. It’s no wonder thousands of campuses and school districts nationwide are turning to digital signage.

Thanks to the HST The CRA Now Has More Auditors Than Ever!

The McGuinty government used many sell points when promoting the H.S.T. Some examples include; making some industries more competitive and reducing accounting expenses for business across the board.

Prior to the new H.S.T., you would be required to collect and remit G.S.T. and in some cases also P.S.T.. If you fell behind remitting your taxes, the G.S.T. would be collected by the Canada Revenue Agency and the P.S.T. would be collected by the Ministry of Finance. So with one tax it eliminates the need to have two collectors on each taxpayers file.

In the private sector, this would mean layoffs but we all know that the government certainly does not do business like the private sector.

Rather than saving tax payers money by eliminating the enforcement arm at the Ministry of Finance as there is no longer a provincial sales tax, thus the duplicated collection effort is not longer required, they have instead begun moving Ministry of Finance collectors over to the CRA.

What does this mean to you?

There will be double the man power at the CRA, to collect from the same number of tax payers. In our practice (in the past month alone) we have seen a spike in CRA audits and notional assessments.
Who is at risk?

• Any tax payer who owes money to the CRA
• Any tax payer who earned money that was not declared on a return who has not been caught
• Any tax payer who is behind filing their returns.

What can you do?

Come clean because eventually you will get caught and will have the full force of the CRA enforcement arm coming after you. If the CRA is unaware that you earned extra income, you can apply for a Tax Pardon under the voluntary disclosure program which will save you from penalties. If the CRA is already after you, retain an experienced tax firm to negotiate on your behalf.

Our firm (Mark Feldstein and Associates Chartered Accountants) knows first-hand that the CRA is aggressive and tricky. Do not attempt negotiating with them on your own and seek professional representation immediately.

Is a Name Change Cheaper Than Pardoning a Criminal Record?

It is no secret that having a conviction carries significant restrictions for the bearer and that at any point in their life, a prospective employer may turn them down or they may lose some other opportunity due to the conviction turning up on a background check. At least in Canada, one way of dealing with this problem is to apply to the Parole Board of Canada to pardon a criminal record (it will not be erased, but the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC), which records criminal convictions in Canada, will make it inaccessible, causing background checks to turn up clear. But getting a pardon for a criminal record is not automatic: first, before a person can apply to get one, a period of ineligibility of three to ten years (depending on the gravity of the conviction) starting upon the completion of one’s sentence must pass. The application process involves the Parole Board of Canada and is itself lengthy and fraught with bureaucratic difficulty. Moreover, even a pardoned criminal record is flagged in the CPIC database in the case of certain violent and sexual offenders and may be disclosed on a background check if the applicant wishes to work with vulnerable sector people like children. Is there any other option for a person wishing to hide the fact that they have a conviction?

Name Changes

In the past, one apparently simple solution was for an ex-convict to change their name and to apply under that name for a background check when required to do so. Following the recent media coverage of Graham James, the hockey coach who sexually abused NHL players Sheldon Kennedy and Theo Fleury as teenagers, was convicted, served a short sentence, was pardoned, and recently was charged with further sexual abuse, a CPIC superintendent stated that in many cases, the name change tactic is successful. The exact rules for doing so vary from province to province, but at present, only British Columbia and Alberta require fingerprints when applying for the name change. Once a change is approved, it is published in official gazettes, but is not formally relayed to the CPIC. As a result, many have gotten away with the ruse and have made it look like they have no record whereas in actual fact, they do. This would only be discovered if the person in question were charged with a fresh offence, in which case they would be fingerprinted, the prints matched with those already existing in the database, and the new alias added to their record.

Similarly, if a single woman with a criminal record gets married and formally changes her name to her husband’s, the criminal record will stay under her maiden name and an application for a background check made under her new name should result in no matches.

More Transparency May Be Imminent

However, provincial name-change procedures provide different levels of disclosure, and the name change may be picked up by the RCMP. The system in British Columbia seems to be the most transparent, with applicants being required to provide fingerprints taken by a police department or accredited agency; after the name change is registered, these prints are sent to the RCMP for a background check. Similarly, in Alberta, name change applicants are subjected to an RCMP fingerprint screening. In other provinces, the name change process may be hampered by such requirements as that the request not be for fraudulent purposes. On top of that, the CPIC is making attempts to identify more offenders by matching applicants’ birthdates, genders and fingerprints, rather than just names, with those in the database. With the recent crackdown on crime by the Canadian government, there is a chance that more provinces will adopt a system similar to British Columbia’s. So, the only certain way to make one’s criminal past inaccessible to the public is to have the Parole Board pardon a criminal record.

Custom made shirts from order to home in less than two weeks and no need to visit the tailor

Article by Mark Jagger

In days gone by obtaining Custom made shirts or tailored shirts as some refer to them meant two or three trips to a tailor; one for measuring and ordering, a second visit for a first fit and then a final visit for a fitting before the shirt was even in your hands. Now the process is much simpler thanks in no small measure to the advent of the internet. Online ordering and paying for tailor made shirts is as simple as choosing the design, customising the design and then placing one’s measurements onto a simple web form and sending the order and paying with a click of the mouse.

Saving time, yet still being made by hand by artisans all of whom have had the skills passed on to them from their predecessors, the art of the hand crafted shirt is, to pardon the pun, in good hands. The quality and texture of a handmade shirt using the time honoured traditions of the master tailor cannot be faulted; a soft feel with, paradoxically, a crispness of material which leaves even the best quality off the peg example trailing in its shadow.

Typically off the peg shirts are a mixture of low grade cotton mixed with artificial fibers such as polyester or polyester blends; these blended material types are perhaps the poorest quality available. The drive for higher profits and of course cost cutting combined with volume sales means that off the peg examples of shirts will NEVER match the quality, feel and/or appearance of a tailored shirt.

The thread count of the highest grade Egyptian cotton which is generally used in the manufacture of handmade shirts and tailored dress shirts is typically over one hundred per inch and can be as much as one hundred and twenty five, compared to about fifty or sixty of an off the peg volume manufacture shirt. Combined with the lower quality of the material and the mix of manmade fibres there is no comparison to a made to measure cotton shirt. Indeed, a handmade shirt of the finest quality can last for several decades depending on the usage and even after many years of wear the shirt will still look and feel better than that of a new off the peg example.

Custom made shirts from order to home in less than two weeks and no need to visit the tailor is the new way of ordering quality workmanship which will last for many years; look good in a tailored shirt for a lot less than one would imagine.
