– Minister FergusonThe Guyana Electrical Inspectorate (GEI) on Wednesday hosted its fifth annual electrical conference themed “Embracing a Green Energy Sector to Power a Green Economy”.The event, which was held at the Umana Yana, in Kingston, Georgetown, saw the attendance of the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) electrical contractors, electrical inspectors staff of the Public Infrastructure Ministry and representatives from the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) and the Guyana Fire Service.During her address, Minister within the Public Infrastructure Ministry, Annette Ferguson reiterated that with Guyana’s initiative to ‘go green’; all electrical products must be in compliance with the standards of the GNBS and GEI.She also stated that it is essential that all electrical suppliers ensure that these criterias are met. This is in light of the constant fires that Guyana has been experiencing in the recent times, which is generally caused by defective household appliances.“Too long we have been hearing of homes destroyed by fire and most of the times, it is not a GPL problem, but faulty electrical products sold by stores across this country,” the Minister noted.While stating that many uncertified persons have labelled themselves as contractors, Minister Ferguson added that these persons must be certified by the GEI. She stated that there are plans by Government to invest more in solar energy, as it is ‘the future for us’. This is their way of aiming Guyana towards greater renewable energy use.
Leiding added that the court was yet to open the case, but had accepted an accessory prosecution from the alleged victim, named only as ‘S.’.According to the SZ and WDR reports, ‘S.’ is Boateng’s former partner of ten years and the mother of two of his three children.Prosecutors also confirmed that Boateng was the subject of a separate police investigation into assault.Former Germany central defender Boateng is one of the country’s most successful players, having won the World Cup with Germany in 2014 and the Champions League with Bayern in 2013.His career has declined in recent months, after he was dropped from the national squad earlier this year.Boateng’s relationship with his club has also suffered after he slipped down the defensive pecking order at German league champions Bayern.In May, club president Uli Hoeness advised the 31-year-old to “find a new club”, but a mooted transfer to Italian giants Juventus fell through at the last minute on the final day of the European transfer window on Monday.0Shares0000(Visited 22 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Jerome Boateng has been charged with assault after allegedly attacking his former partner © AFP/File / Christof STACHEBERLIN, Germany, Sep 3 – Bayern Munich and former German national team football star Jerome Boateng, 31, has been charged with assault after allegedly attacking his former partner, German prosecutors confirmed Tuesday.“The Munich prosecutor’s office has had proceedings open against Jerome Boateng for dangerous assault since autumn 2018.

As people across British Columbia deal with the harsh reality of lost homes, Albertans are looking to help out.The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has some tips to make sure donations end up in the hands of people who need it most.The BBB’s Leah Brownridge said the number one thing people can do is do a quick check of the organization they’re donating to.“Any organization that is claiming to be a charitable organization must be registered with the Canada Revenue Agency,” she said, adding everyone needs to take extra care donating online.“Do a little research into the individual that has actually set up that page,” said Brownridge. “If you know and trust that person then you can be confident you’re making a safe donation, however if it’s someone you don’t know, you can’t be totally sure where that money is going.”Some pop-up organizations are completely fake and not a single cent goes to those who need it.Even though someone may have every good intention donating certain items, make sure they’re needed first.“They may not need, at this point, things like clothing or maybe food,” said Brownridge. “Maybe money is the primary donation but once again, making sure you make that differentiation and then make your donation accordingly.”It’s also a good idea to make sure the organization has an on-the ground presence.Brownridge added don’t send cash or give out personal or financial information. For security and tax reasons, people should always use cheques or credit cards.
