Here are some tips for keeping your home safe and warm when it’s cold outside:Make sure your space heater has the label showing that it is listed by a recognized testing laboratory.Before using any space heater, read the manufacturer’s instructions and warning labels carefully.Inspect heaters for cracked or broken plugs or loose connections before each use. If frayed, worn or damaged, do not use the heater.Never leave a space heater unattended. Turn it off when you’re leaving a room or going to sleep, and don’t let pets or children play too close to a space heater.Space heaters are only meant to provide supplemental heat and should never be used to warm bedding, cook food, dry clothing or thaw pipes.Install smoke alarms on every floor of your home and outside all sleeping areas and test them once a month.Place space heaters on level, flat surfaces. Never place heaters on cabinets, tables, furniture, or carpet, which can overheat and start a fire.Always unplug and safely store the heater when it is not in use.

COMMENT Press Trust Of India Last Updated: 13th October, 2019 13:27 IST R Praggnanandhaa Wins World Youth Chess Championship In U-18 Category R Praggnanandhaa of Tamil Nadu won the World Youth Chess Championship in the Under 18 age category. The 14-year-old grandmaster won the championship in Mumbai LIVE TV Written By FOLLOW US First Published: 13th October, 2019 13:27 IST R Praggnanandhaa emerged as an unconquered king in the World Youth Chess Championship in Mumbai, claiming the Gold in the Under-18 Open category on Saturday. He became the first-ever male Chess player to win a World title in the age category. Praggnanandhaa already has the title of the International Master (IM) and Grandmaster (GM) to his name.READ | “Mary Kom Is Destined To Win Tokyo Olympic Gold”: Akhil KumarThe winThe 14-year-old Grand Master from Chennai settled for a cautious draw in the 11th and final round against Valentin Buckels (Germany) to top the charts with nine points. He, however, will also have to thank compatriot, International Master Arjun Kalyan for achieving a crucial draw against top-seeded Shant Sargsyan (Armenia). Praggnanandhaa would have been under pressure if Grand Master Shant had won. But Shant could not unravel a determined Arjun, allowing Praggnanandhaa to annex the title. The Championship ended on a high note for India, with six other medals, including three silver, coming their way. Only the Under-16 Girls category proved tough for India, although B M Akshaya gave a good account of herself. Akshaya lost the medal to Anousha Mahdian, suffering an unexpected defeat to her in the final round. But Indian girls in the Under-14 segment compensated for it, with Divya Deshmukh and Rakshitta Ravi winning two medals. Top seed Women’s International Master Divya, who seemed to be out of contention midway through the event, pulled off a well-thought-out victory in the last round to clinch silver. Rakshitta too beat overnight leader Bat-Erdene Mungunzul on the top board to earn the bronze. Kazakhstan’s Meruert Kamalidenova, however, was the star of this category, registering five straight wins to clinch the gold. Fide Master L R Srihari (Under-14 Open) and Vantika Agrawal (Under-16 Girls) collected the other two silver medals for India, playing out draws in their respective matches. Vantika had an outside chance of pocketing the gold, especially after top seed Polina Shuvalova (8.5) settled for a draw. Vantika, with eight points, however, couldn’t beat.READ | Eliud Kipchoge Becomes First Man To Complete Marathon In Under 2 HoursOther winnersAlexandra Obolentseva of Russia, and finished half a point behind Shuvalova.

S Maralakshikari won the bronze, after beating the surprise package of the championship, R Abinandhan. CM Aronyak Ghosh (8) claimed the other bronze for the country in the Under-16 Open category after drawing with Iran’s Arash Daghli. He will, however, look back at the WYCC as a missed opportunity, after accepting a quick draw in the penultimate round.READ | Dutee Chand Breaks Her Own National Record On Her Way To GoldREAD | Rijiju To Form Committee To Review Sports Code At ‘appropriate Time’ WATCH US LIVE SUBSCRIBE TO US
