Apple Event – April 20th

So, I'm an Android user. I still have to support Android and Apple smartphones, however I haven't made the switch to Apple. I like the control and choice I have with Android. But I can't ignore Apple's push into the privacy and security space. Apple's next event takes...

Japan Still Has A Lot To Teach Us About Transit

Japan Still Has A Lot To Teach Us About Transit

I’m probably going to ramble a bit in this post. When I watch railfans in Japan, it never fails to amaze me. I adore their public transportation system. I'm amazed at how they keep it easy by using trains of various designs to transport people through cities and...

Gentrifying My Old Hood

Gentrifying My Old Hood

So gentrification is the process whereby the character of a poor urban area is changed by wealthier people moving in; maybe by changing the housing, and the types of businesses in an area. So why do I talk about gentrification? I grew up in the Don Mills area,...

Adapting to Change

Adapting to Change

Over the last few months, how many times have we heard the phrase "in these trying times"? These phrases are used on almost every news report and talk show. Sure, we are definitely in some difficult times, but what will it look like after we've gotten through this...

Choosing An EMR Vendor Who Cares

Choosing An EMR Vendor Who Cares

During these trying times healthcare professionals should not only aim to provide the best care to their patients, but also choose the right medical software for their practice. By digitally storing patients' medical histories and treatments, EMRs remove the need for...

Protect Your Patient Medical Data

Protect Your Patient Medical Data

Cyber-criminals are always on the lookout for ways to monetize illegal activity. The unlawful use of customer and business information is one way; however, medical data offers a more lucrative opportunity. A breach in your system, allowing hackers to access your data,...

End The Stigma – BellLetsTalk!

So You Need My Help Now?

So You Need My Help Now?

I always find it fascinating when someone calls me for assistance, after doing something they weren't supposed to do on their computer, and then decide to tell me how I should fix the problem. Let me know how that's working out for you while I sip on my tea.

Is Markham the Next Victim of Unchecked Urban Growth?

Is Markham the Next Victim of Unchecked Urban Growth?

I will limit this to one paragraph, or more, because there is not much more I can say that has not already been said. We must do better! The traffic on Highway 7, between Warden and McCowan is just dreadful. For a city like Markham it’s unacceptable to already see...

We Need More Transit

I normally don’t drive downtown for a reason. Today I realized that driving downtown is absolute madness around The Rogers Centre and area (getting worse). I love the Condos, but traffic today was maddening. We need more transit to relieve the...
