Dear Editor, Our attention has been directed to a letter in the Kaieteur News edition of August 20, 2009, headlined “Penny wise, Pound foolish.”Your correspondent on the subject of electricity theft, in passing questioned whether the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) will “organise and keep hearings in other areas so as to get the wider view from consumers and prospective consumers.”The PUC wishes to advise that the Commission holds annual public outreach programmes thoughtout the country along with a number of other programmes, aimed primarily at soliciting the views of consumers with respect to the services of the public utilities under our jurisdiction.Our plans for instance, for the remainder of the year will see outreaches conducted in New Amsterdam and Anna Regina, Essequibo Coast.At our outreach programmes representatives from the various utility services are present and they answer questions and report back to their respective companies what were the concerns of consumers.As an aside, our consumer awareness programmes are conducted all year round, and this is where the PUC staff visit various public places to meet and interact with consumers. We have found that the owners of businesses are particularly receptive to us and facilitate our discourses with the consumers.Our schools education programme which started in 2008 has seen us engaging with students and staff of secondary schools and we have found that the students are generally keen to learn about the utilities, Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, the role of the regulator, and their role as prospective consumers.Our next outreach is slated for Thursday, August 27, 2009 where we will be meeting with the public at the Cornelia Ida Primary School, WCD at 4.30 p.m. Two months ago we held a similar outreach at Soesdyke, E.B.D.Vidiahar PersaudSecretary

Yesterday afternoon, 92 persons from the Sophia Training Centre (STC), graduated from an intense skills training programme that lasted approximately six months. The programme covered several areas.The graduation ceremony was held at the Carifesta Sports Complex.According to Brian King, who previously was the supervisor at the STC and was recently transferred to the New Opportunity Corps (NOC) to function in another senior capacity, Cheap Jerseys Online, this is the 20th non-residential skills training graduation since the Youth Entrepreneurial Skills Training Programme (YEST) introduced such an opportunity to young individuals.He explained that 265 persons applied to begin the course which commenced on May 10, 2010 but only 141 trainees were selected.The programme aimed at providing semi-skills to the vulnerable youths in today’s society, however, during the course 23 students dropped out due to reasons such as lack of finance for transportation and meals and because some individuals gained jobs.Another 23 applicants who were selected never reported for classes.King stated that for each area taught, there was 65 per cent practical work completed, while 35 per cent was theoretical. He told the gathering that he is hoping that the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport extends the period from six months to nine months to ensure that more groundwork is covered.He also said that there is urgent need for active school libraries which will allow students who are involved in the programmes to complete homework and pursue more studies. Also, the STC is in need of a welding and fabrication laboratory as well as a handicraft classroom.Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr. Frank Anthony, stated that children learn at different levels and some excel at academics while others excel at skills, so therefore, children must be able to access proper skills training.There were six areas of training offered for this batch of graduates, each having one top graduate and a runner up. Catering saw Shaneeza Haynes as the best graduating student with Martina Cole as runner up; Office Administration and Information Technology saw Steffi Peters as the best graduand while Mark Dinidial was the runner up and masonry saw Colin McKenzie as best graduate with Brian Baynes as  the runner up.For the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning course, Matthew Dindial was the best graduand while Kevin Pellew secured the runner up spot.Handicraft saw Latesha McGregor as the best graduand while Gallieo was the runner up and Ziggy Trotman was the best graduand in the field of Welding and Fabrication with Jason Canterbury following.The best graduating student for the handicraft course, Latesha McGregor, stated that the learning process was “very good” and that she “learnt a lot about making stuff especially place-mats, hand-mats and towel holders”.She explained that it was a great experience for her to endure and she would encourage others to participate.Another graduate, Ashanna Raghubir, said that she thought such an opportunity was very important in developing the skills of young people and would recommend the programme to anyone.

“Many people speak, but not many people know the art of public speaking.”With this in mind, the Georgetown Toastmasters Club has been continually working towards the development of the art of public speaking in Guyana.Building on the idea that the Toastmasters Club is about self-development, the founding concepts of the club are to develop better thinking, wholesale nfl jerseys, listening and speaking skills.Sandy Griffith, Immediate Past President of the Georgetown Toastmasters Club, noted that in August 1973, membership of the Toastmasters Club became open to women. In the past, she noted, the Toastmasters Club was a male-dominated club.Griffith served as the President of the Georgetown Toastmasters Club before she was succeeded by the current President, David Gomes.On March 18 next year, the Georgetown Toastmasters Club will be commemorating its 50th anniversary. This milestone in the club’s history, Gomes said, would be properly commemorated, with special note being made of the achievements of the club over the years.While no concrete plans have yet been made for the commemoration of the anniversary, Gomes highlighted the fact that the committee that will oversee those events has already been formed and is working towards making it bigger than ever.Notably, one of the Georgetown Toastmasters Club’s patrons is Justice Desiree Bernard, Member of the Caribbean Court of Justice.Gomes said that increased membership in the Georgetown Toastmasters Club, along with the consolidation of the club by building internal capacities, has reinforced confidence within the club.Even though Guyana has always had numerous literary and debating clubs and societies, it was not until 1959 that the Georgetown Toastmasters Club came into existence.Charging itself to train persons in the art of public speaking, the Georgetown Chapter of the International Organisation was founded by Derek Adamson.Adamson returned to Guyana in September 1958, after a five-year trip to Canada. During his stay there, Adamson had become a member of a Toastmasters Club.When he returned to Guyana, he was excited and eager to share all of the benefits he had amassed from being a member of the Toastmasters Club.The first Georgetown Toastmasters Club meeting was held at the Woodbine Hotel on March 18, 1959; and just two months after, the club received its charter from Toastmasters International.Toastmasters International dates back to 1904, when it was started by Ralph Smedley, the Education Director of the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) in Bloomington, USA. It was started as a public-speaking club for teenage boys. Despite this, the club did not really take off until 1924.In October of that year, Smedley started a Toastmasters Club in Santa Anna, California with boys from the YMCA and some local businessmen. Since then, Toastmasters International has significantly grown.At present, it is an organization that boasts more than 226, 000 members from 92 different countries all over the world.
