I received this email and I predicted two years ago that the total would be close to $250,000!!!
Every junkie ran to this course and got their computer to sell it for drugs!
Here's the email -
Charlie, Did you ever find out anything about the scam that some business
in Saint John was doing by giving anyone who wanted a computer and money to
attend school and most received money and computer and never went to
Remember the Drug Addict scam.
Its funny that not another word
It was the government who shut it down and I think it was them who initiated it.
Get some facts if you can.
Still wondering in Saint John and I am sure that I am paying for it though my taxes!

My god? There's no escape from politics in this Province. Not even when watching the CBC movie on the 72 series.
All of a sudden Chisholm Pothier appeared on my screen playing the part of a television reporter. He's the guy walking up the stairway behind Bernard Lord.
My God? They're all over the place!!!
BECAUSE OF THE QUEBEC SECURITY STAFF SECURITY MEASURES AT THE NEW BRUNSWICK LEGISLATURE? THIS COULD BE A DISASTER JUST WAITING TO HAPPEN????
The party in opposition used to be able to park in front of the Legislature but no more.
Look at the parking?
Only in New Brunswick!!! But at least I'm on record to say there's a major safety problem here....
Ron is a former Principal and we would always debate the issue of Ritalin.
I always believe that he must have ADHD?
I love to hear sucsess stories!

ougher warnings on packages of ADHD drugs may cause backlash
By MARILYN LINTON, TORONTO SUN
Five years ago, Sarah Herring's son was "like a bull in a china shop." Constantly on the go, he was "impulsive, interrupting, inappropriate in his behaviour," says his mom. "He was exhausting." Since then, the 13 year-old has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD.
And now that his illness is treated with medication, the difference, claims his mom, is "night and day."
Despite the fact that her son has suffered no adverse affects from his medication, Herring is worried about Health Canada's recent decision to add tougher warnings to the labels of Ritalin and similar drugs used to treat ADHD. Because the stimulants increase heart rate and blood pressure, the warnings should be a red flag to anyone with a family history of heart problems.
But Herring fears that the government's action will feed the negativity that already exists among those who say that ADHD is not a serious disorder and that the drugs are over-prescribed and used only to keep kids in line.
She says that for every one person who understands the complexities of ADHD, there are 10 who don't and criticize those parents whose kids are medicated. "It's already problematic to fill a prescription," says Herring, describing the suspicion that she sometimes feels in filling prescriptions for two of her children, both diagnosed with the disorder. Parents who choose to keep their kids on medication may have to endure the "social aspect of being judged now that there will be a warning associated with these drugs," she says.
Two million prescriptions for ADHD drugs were written in Canada in 2005; it's estimated that in the U.S. nearly 10% of all 10-year-old boys are medicated. "It seems to me, looking at the research, that the findings are very preliminary," says Herring, referring to the 25 sudden deaths and 54 cases of serious cardiac events including heart attack,
arrhythmia or hypertension.
Some experts agree. Dr. Umash Jain, a Toronto child and adolescent psychiatrist has many ADHD patients and says that the drugs, some of which have been around for 50 years, are among the safest of psychiatric medications.
ADHD is a neurological disorder that's present in 5%-9% of schoolage kids in Ontario, he stresses. "Let's call a spade a spade. ADHD is a medical condition that suggests that the brain is behaving differently."
While Dr. Jain believes that medications must be closely monitored, he also says that studies have proven that medications for ADHD offer a more successful treatment than psycho-behavioural therapies or special education.
The most common behaviors exhibited by those who have ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Everyone shows signs of these behaviours at times, however, so the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (a tool used by psychiatrists) specifies that behaviors must appear before the age of seven and continue for at least six months.
To be diagnosed with ADHD, you must meet a symptom threshold of over six out of nine described criteria, says Dr. Jain. ADHD behaviours must also create a real handicap in at least two areas of life -- such as school, home, work or social settings.
Writing this week in the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Steven Nissen, a cardiologist at Ohio's Cleveland Clinic and a consultant on the FDA advisory panel that recommended the black box warning in the U.S., said that while "there are important potential benefits of these drugs for certain highly dysfunctional children," it's inappropriate to administer such potent drugs to the millions who currently take them. He and his colleagues called for "more selective and restricted use."
"The medications facilitate lifestyle improvements, but do not cure," stresses Dr. Jain. "There is still a myth that ADHD burns itself out by the age of 13," he says, adding that there are many adults with the neurobiological disorder. Many people still think that children can't possibly have a mental disorder, he says. "The stigma against ADHD is also a stigma against mental illness. We have a challenge in educating the public."

Irving Oil Eyes Global Expansion
NEW BRUNSWICK, Canada -- Irving Oil, along with at least a dozen oil companies from around the world, may be eyeing the Irish gas station subsidiary of Norway's oil and gas giant Statoil ASA for acquisition, reported CanadaEast.com.
The Stavanger-based Statoil operates 60 percent of all Norwegian oil and gas production, as well as activities in 32 countries. In Ireland, it owns 300 Statoil-branded gas stations.
A.F. Alhajji, an energy economist with Ohio Northern University, said in the report the move would certainly put Irving Oil on a path toward global business with its retail gas bars and convenience stores.
"In terms of experience, they have it. What they are really missing is a taste of Europe," he told CanadaEast.com. "By going to Europe, this is one step toward a global business."
For its part, Irving Oil would neither confirm nor deny it is interested in the acquisition.
"We don't comment on potential acquisitions or divestitures, but we're always looking for new ways to grow our business," Jennifer Parker, an Irving Oil spokeswoman, said in the report.
Besides the Saint John oil refinery, Canada's largest, Irving Oil owns and operates more than 500 convenience stores in eastern Canada and New England primarily under the brand Bluecanoe. It has also partnered with Repsol YPF, the largest private energy company in Latin America, to develop an liquified natural gas terminal in the Port City, according to the report.
Alhajji said in the report Irving's dominance in the downstream oil industry makes it perfectly suited to jump into Ireland's market.
"They are suited to take over, basically, because they are focused to serving the consumer at the end," he told CanadaEast.com.
Bill Simpkins, an energy industry consultant in Halifax, said in the report that convenience stores are profitable operations for oil companies. The market for quick to-go foods and beverages can be quite lucrative.
"I think overall the Irving companies are very astute in terms of where they invest," he said.
However, the Ireland acquisition isn't large enough to take Irving's business solidly global. Alhajji estimated it's likely only worth about $273 million.
"The whole deal is a small deal. So, we're not talking about a multibillion-dollar acquisition," he told CanadaEast.com.
Still, the implications are huge for Irving Oil, which has until now operated its predominantly Maritime and New England business in close proximity to its corporate home base in New Brunswick.
It had to happen but the question was when?
I change the format of writing comments and it’s not that different.
You must admit that I have been fair to have a public open forum and I will continue to do so.
You can still write Anonymous comments but the only difference if that the website will asks me to approve a comment?
I can’t be around this blog site 24 hours a day and I’m sure that you’ll understand?
I will continue to blog away on issues. If you feel that I’m holding back on comments?
Well? You should go to another blog site?
I really didn’t appreciate the comment against God’s minute but that’s ok!!!
This is not a anti-charles blog! This is the people’s blog!!!!
It’s my hobby and I enjoy it so I’m sure that you’ll understand my point of view.
Keep those comments coming and I’m just going to continue to blog away!!!!
AND MANY SPREAD THEIR CLOTHES ON THE ROAD,
AND OTHERS CUT DOWN LEAFY BRANCHES FROM
THE TREES AND SPREAD THEM ON THE ROAD. THEN
THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE AND THOSE WHO
FOLLOWED CRIED OUT HOSANNA! "BLESSED IS HE
WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!"
( MARK 11:8-9 *NKJV )
Jesus' final week of His Earthly Ministry began with
Him riding a donkey colt into the City and thus His
triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Thus fulfilling the
Prophecy of Zechariah, REJOICE GREATLY,
O DAUGHTER OF ZION! SHOUT O DAUGHTER OF
JERUSALEM! BEHOLD, YOUR KING IS COMING TO
YOU; HE IS JUST AND HAVING SALVATION, LOWLY
AND RIDING A DONKEY, A COLT THE FOLD OF A
DONKEY. ( ZECHARIAH 9:9 )
Remember, this was Sunday of the same week that
Jesus would be crucified, and the great Passover Festival
was about to begin! Jews came to Jerusalem from all
over the Roman Empire during this week-long celebration,
to worship and remember the great Exodus from Egypt.
( EXODUS 12:37-51 ) The same people who cried out
"HOSANNA! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE
NAME OF THE LORD," changed their cries to "CRUCIFY
HIM, CRUCIFY HIM!" before the week was over.
( MARK 11:9 & JOHN 19:6 )
So on this Palm Sunday we reflect on Christ's last
few days in human form, and what a great price HE paid
for our sins! FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT
HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHO-
EVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT
HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. FOR GOD DID NOT SEND
HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD,
BUT THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE
SAVED. ( JOHN 3:17-18 )
What a tremendous price and sacrifice that was!
This is a true demonstration of how very much our
Heavenly Father loves each one of us!
So Charles, why not pause for a moment or two and
Thank our Savior for what HE did for you, and me,
and the rest of HIS Children as well. Why not also
attend the Church of your choice, and tell HIM how
much you love HIM, for that will make HIS Day!
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
