Google Announce Date For Its Annual Pixel Event

Published

on

Google has just announced the date for its annual Pixel event. Set
to take place this September 30th, the company plans to announce its
“new Chromecast, latest smart speaker and new Pixel phones.” The event
will take place virtually, as the invitation has the tagline of “Launch
Night In” and “Your couch is the best seat in the house.”

As
stated above, we already have some idea of what the announcements will
be. There have already been leaks aplenty about Google’s upcoming Android dongle, which is slated to be a “Chromecast with Google TV,” we’ve seen photos of the company’s latest take on a smart speaker and we even know about the company’s plans for a 5G-enabled Pixel 4a and Pixel 5.

It’s not clear yet if Google plans to announce much more than that, but you’ll just have to tune in to find out. We’ll be doing the same on September 30th, starting at around 2PM ET.

Night Club Owners Call on Government to Ease COV¡D-19 Restrictions

Published

on

The last announcement by the Government in regards to efforts undertaken to combat the global pandemic in Ghana has been met by utter despair from businesses who are starting to question the veracity of the lockdown measures and where the empirical evidence is for closing hospitality venues which account for a mere or no percentage spread of the virus.

Ace Tantra Night Club, Osu has warned that, the latest lockdown restrictions, which see Night Clubs and other leisure venues having been closed down, could see an increment in unemployment unless the government offer immediate and comprehensive financial support for night club owners struggling to cope with the imposed draconian restrictions on the businesses, or allow these independent businesses return to full operation.

According to the management of the night club, who spoke to www.gbafrica.net, the hospitality and leisure venue is now shouldering 100% of the lockdown burden with no meaningful support to compensate for 7 months and counting. The management also explained that, the business continues successive payment of utility bills and logistics, monthly salaries to staff who would be rendered jobless should the business close down.

The management buttressed their claims by saying, if political parties are holding conference and rallies where supporters attend in large numbers, most without face masks, ignoring measures recommended by the government to prevent spreading the coronavirus, pubs and bars allowed to operate then, there is no need to partially or fully close night clubs and other leisure venues.

The management suggested certain measures that can be adapted and enforced to help ease the spread of virus. They outlined measures like, mandatory temperature checks prior to entry, admission of customers based on reservation only, restricting club capacity to 50% for a start and this can be subject to review after a while. This they explain, helps protect everyone and strengthen the impact of the fight against the pandemic.

Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, has told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday that, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) will totally ban production of alcoholic drinks in sachets by 2023/2024, after the organization expressed worry over the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages in sachets and small volume glass and Poly-Ethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles.

With the support of the Federal Ministry of Health, Adeyeye stated that, the concern also relates to the fact that alcohol “is also a toxic and psychoactive substance with dependence producing properties, explaining that, uncontrolled access and availability of high concentration alcohol in sachet and small volume PET or glass bottles have been put forward as a factor contributing to substance and alcohol abuse in Nigeria with its negative impact on the society.

the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Burniton Music Group (BMG), Stonebwoy,
has, on Wednesday, September 23rd, paid a visit to Bel Beverages; a
Ghanaian producer of a variety of top of the range non-alcoholic drinks,
including the widely accepted Big Boss energy drink.

His visit
was to categorically “inspect and authenticate” the new labeling which has his
photo printed on it. The inspection
was followed by an aerial tour of the factory where variety of drinks are
produced and how every step of the production is manned by a workforce of
people passionate about delivering quality unparalleled refreshment to our
customers.

Stonebwoy and
his entourage later took a trip to Ashaiman where he was born and bred to make
some giveaways of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) vetted and approved energy
drink, and to have an intimate interaction with the natives of the town and
most importantly, ardent followers of his craft who amassed in their numbers to
give him an experience.

Barely two months after he secured an ambassadorial deal with the non-alcoholic producing firm, Ghanaian Reggae/Ragga & Dance-hall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla fully purchased the owning rights of the energy drink, Big Boss. The deal saw the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards winner take control of the energy drink’s franchise and act as the president, while it’s still produced by Bel Beverages.
