New E Scams Warnings

In light of Hurricane Irene, the public is reminded to beware of fraudulent emails and websites purporting to conduct charitable relief efforts. To learn more about avoiding online fraud, please see “Tips on Avoiding Fraudulent Charitable Contribution Schemes”

Tips On Avoiding Fraudulent Charitable Contribution Schemes

Recently several natural disasters, including tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes, have devastated lives and property. In the wake of these events that have caused emotional distress and great monetary loss to numerous victims, individuals across the nation often feel a desire to help these victims, frequently through monetary donations.

These disasters prompt individuals with criminal intent to solicit contributions purportedly for a charitable organization or a good cause. Therefore, before making a donation of any kind, consumers should adhere to certain guidelines, to include the following:

Do not respond to unsolicited (SPAM) e mail.

Be skeptical of individuals representing themselves as officials soliciting via e mail for donations.

Do not click on links contained within an unsolicited e mail.

Be cautious of e mail claiming to contain pictures in attached files, as the files may contain viruses. Only open attachments from known senders.

To ensure contributions are received and used for intended purposes, make contributions directly to known organizations rather than relying on others to make the donation on your behalf.

Validate the legitimacy of the organization by directly accessing the recognized charity or aid organization’s website rather than following an alleged link to the site.

Attempt to verify the legitimacy of the non profit status of the organization by using various Internet based resources, which also may assist in confirming the actual existence of the organization.

Do not provide personal or financial information to anyone who solicits contributions: providing such information may compromise your identity and make you vulnerable to identity theft.

1 National Center for Disaster Fraud (NCDF) was originally established by the Department of Justice to investigate, prosecute, and deter fraud in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Its mission has expanded to include suspected fraud from any natural or man made disaster. More than 20 federal agencies, including the FBI, participate in the NCDF, allowing it to act as a centralized clearinghouse of information related to relief fraud.

We hope you enjoy our Site as you learn about LED Lighting and how to live a greener lifestyle, while saving our Planet and a few dollars at the same time. We wanted to do something that was both good for the planet and create a great business. Please contact us if you don’t see what you’re looking for.

LED is the acronym for “Light Emitting Diode”. LED’s are semiconductor devices that produce light. In an ordinary diode, the semiconductor material itself ends up absorbing a lot of the light energy. LED’s are specially constructed to release a large number of photons outward. Additionally, they are housed in a plastic bulb that concentrates the light in a particular direction, Most of the light from the diode bounces off the sides of the bulb, traveling on through the rounded end.

LEDs have several advantages over conventional incandescent lamps. For one thing, they don’t have a filament that will burn out, so they last much longer. Additionally, their small plastic bulb make them a lot more durable. They also fit more easily into modern electronic circuits.

The main advantage is efficiency. In conventional incandescent bulbs, the light production process involves generating a lot of heat (the filament must be warmed). This is completely wasted energy, unless you’re using the lamp as a heater, because a huge portion of the available electricity isn’t going toward producing visible light. LEDs generate very little heat, relatively speaking. A much higher percentage of the electrical power is going directly to generating light, which cuts down on the electricity demands considerably.

Up until recently, LEDs were too expensive to use for most lighting applications because they’re built around advanced semiconductor material. The price of semiconductor devices has plummeted over the past decade, however, making LEDs a more cost effective lighting option for a wide range of situations. While they may be more expensive than incandescent lights up front, their lower cost in the long run can make them a better buy. In the future, they will play an even bigger role in the world of technology.

LED Lighting is the future

With the incandescent bulb unable to survive the Darwinian struggle for existence and the CFL plagued with issues of mercury contamination, flickering lights, safe recycling and incompatibility with dimmer circuit LED lights are clearly the future of lighting.

The Incandescent Bulb Inefficient and unsafe

A 10% efficiency ceiling The incandescent bulb uses less than 10% of the electricity it uses to produce light and wastes the remaining 90% as heat! A 100 Watt incandescent bulb has a luminous efficiency of less than 3% and its theoretical upper limit of efficiency (that is practically unattainable) is capped at 10%. What this means is that a hundred watt bulb wastes close to 95 watts in heating the room and then the air conditioning unit has to pump this heat out!

Short life span The high temperature at which the light bulb operates 3170 degrees F means that the filament burns out quickly requiring frequent changes of fixtures. A cluster of solid state Light Emitting Diode based lights with a life span of 30,000 hours or more of each individual lamp, is the clear winner with the risk of critical failure reduced to almost zero.

Burn risk As anyone with a small child will testify the hot incandescent bulb is a dangerous thing to have around a kid. Not only can a bulb fragment and cause glass shards on the floor it can also burn you.

Given that a 6 watt LED bulb can easily produce as much light as a 50 watt incandescent bulb means that a move away from the incandescent will save 88% of lighting costs, several tons of mercury emissions from coal fired power plants, and millions of tons of carbon emissions. Whether you prefer to be an early adopter of the technology of the future or wish to contribute to the battle against rising carbon emissions and consequent global warming or wants to child proof your house or save money on your utility bill or wish simply for a safe yet high return investment, LED lights fit the bill.

Albert and Theresa Simons officially opened their doors recently to their new LED Showroom, ATS LED Suppliers. Bishop Lamb remarked that he had blessed numerous businesses over the years and was confident that their business would be a success noting, that their business was “needed in Bermuda”.

Following the blessing and the ribbon cutting, veteran entrepreneur, Steve Thomson, President of Mailboxes Unlimited, shared how proud he was of the Simons and that he was happy to support them wishing them much success in their endeavors. He shared his own story of how switching to LED lights reduced his BELCO bill by $300.

BEDC Finance Director, Ray Jones and Jamillah Lodge, BEDC Business Development Officer, attended the opening and offered to provide business support as needed. Mrs. Lodge commented that “the showroom was beautiful.”

Most of the work was done by Mr. Simons. She continued, “This is an excellent example of how a business can bootstrap its way to opening.” Mrs. Over the next four years, the clientele grew to the point where additional storage and operational space became necessary. Our products meet all standards for energy efficient and environmentally friendly lighting.

“Our VISION is to become the islands’ leaders in the release of new and improved LED bulbs and fixtures on an ongoing basis and to meet the ever changing needs and demands of our customers.

“In our Modern Showroom, customers can interact with the various bulbs and fixtures before purchase; thus allowing them to see the amount of lumens emitting from each bulb.
