Westhill Consulting: The big disappointment

I don’t believe all the positive reviews for I experienced otherwise. There is no other term I can associate with Westhill Consulting but rude. They have no patience to explain rather everyone was simply rude. And can you believe it, we even got kicked out! I am never coming back there ever! So here is my story, I thought they would help me on my tax because I am having a hard time dealing with it for I am sure I cannot do it by my self. But then again, I made the worst decision of my life. So I had a morning appointment. As soon as I enter their office I had a bad feeling at once. No one greeted me; it’s as if no one entered. Is that a proper way of customer care? So I let it pass thinking maybe they were just busy or something but yet wait until you hear this. No one greeted, that I can take but no customer service is another story. No one bothers to entertain me and not until after an hour I was seated. It looks like one person is licensed and the rest are preparing tax forms or no one knows what they are doing. And then at last someone noticed or should I say bothered to entertain us after several times of me asking them and getting their attention. But guess what, the girl didn’t even say hi or whatever and didn’t even looked at me. How rude! Then it doesn’t end there, aside from the unfriendly, sluggish customer service and terrible receptionist, their work itself is notably hideous. To think I am only asking for a very basic income tax return, what a waste of time. They ask too many questions and most are irrelevant. Everyone is just so, again, rude, and intimidating. It’s as if they are making you feel ignorant. This experience is just very odd and I don’t hold that against them but they must not to that kind of service. I understand that it was pretty busy that day but it was not an excuse to treat clients like that. Everyone there were all busy so I thought Westhill Consulting is very popular so I went for them not knowing I’d end up very bitter with them. I am really upset and disgusted with the experience. I don't really have anything good to say about this place plus it's hard to find and the big mishap with my wait time. I mean what do you really expect, nuh rather do not expect at all because clearly I expected maybe too much and here I got very disappointed. NEVER GO TO THIS PLACE! If there was an option for negative stars, I'd choose that. don’t undergo with the same disappointment like I did. TRY TO VISIT THIS SPAMMER SITE: http://westhillcon  (Oct 25, 2013 | post #1)

Japan tests 4K television streams over the internet

A Japanese telecoms company is carrying out tests to try to prove 4K-resolution video can be streamed over the internet to television set-top boxes. NTT West is hosting the trial - which runs until Friday - and says it believes it is the first of its kind. A new video compression standard is being used to reduce the amount of data that needs to be transmitted. 4K broadcasts offer four times the amount of detail as 1080p high-definition content. Compressing technologies allow broadcasters to transmit material using much less data than would otherwise be required while minimising the loss of picture quality. With regard to video, instead of sending data describing each pixel of each frame as if it were a standalone entity, a variety of algorithms are used to analyse how colour is distributed across each image and what changes occur between each frame. This is then used to allow redundant information to be discarded, providing instead only the information needed to reconstruct a sequence based on an understanding of how each pixel and frame are related to each other. At present the H.264/MPEG-4 codec is commonly used to broadcast digital TV - including the UK's Freeview HD and Sky HD satellite services - as well as the vast majority of video clips on the web. In January the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a UN agency, approved a new format to succeed it called the H.265 High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard. It allows 4K and 1080p videos to be streamed using roughly half the bit rate, meaning half as much data needs to be transmitted, thanks to the use of more advanced algorithms. The ITU said it should meet the needs of broadcasters for "the next decade". Although 4K ultra-high-definit ion televisions are already on the market, content is scarce and most owners have relied on the sets' ability to upscale existing HD signals. Japan plans to become the first country to broadcast 4K programming over satellite from 2014, in time for the football World Cup. But the ability to stream ultra-high-definit ion video over the net would open the door to other services. "The logical consequence would be that this technology could be used by firms like Netflix to start offering limited premium 4K video subscription packages with higher-definition movies and shows to compete with the traditional pay-TV operators," said Jon Payne, broadband analyst at consultants IHS.  (Jun 21, 2013 | post #1)

westhill consulting reviews - Risk of Bank Failures Is Ri...

http://www.enotes. com/homework-help/ westhill-consultin g-reviews-jakarta- open-437809 Risk of Bank Failures Is Rising in Europe, E.C.B. Warns Alexandros Vlachos/European Pressphoto Agency A bank in Athens. Recession has made it harder for many borrowers to repay their loans. FRANKFURT — The European Central Bank warned on Wednesday that the euro zone’s slumping economy and a surge in problem loans were raising the risk of a renewed banking crisis, even as overall stress in the region’s financial markets had receded. In a sober assessment of the state of the zone’s financial system, the E.C.B. said that a prolonged recession had made it harder for many borrowers to repay their loans, burdening banks that had still not finished repairing the damage caused by the 2008 financial crisis. Last year “was not a good year for banks at all,” Vítor Constâncio, the vice president of the E.C.B., said Wednesday. While the E.C.B., as customary, did not mention specific banks, it said the most vulnerable were those in countries with high unemployment or falling house prices. That list would include Italy, Spain, Greece and Portugal among others. But ailing banks are also a problem in stronger countries like Germany, where Commerzbank and publicly owned landesbanks, or state banks, are struggling with bad loans to the shipping industry and other problems. Germany has drawn criticism for lecturing other countries on excessive government debt, while trying to protect its own banks from greater scrutiny. “They are very virtuous when they look at national accounts but less when they are looking at their own banks,” said Stefano Micossi, an economist who is director general of Assonime, an Italian business group.  (Jun 3, 2013 | post #1)
