“In Search of Childhood” – Poem by Brazilian Poet Anilda Leão – By Rosaliene Bacchus

October 12 is Children’s Day in Brazil. It’s a fun time for children across Brazil. On their special day, children receive toys from their parents and relatives. The day is celebrated with children parties, family outings, and special local events. It’s a day for families to share in the joys of childhood.

To commemorate Brazil’s Children’s Day, my Poetry Corner October 2014 features the poem “À Procura da Infância” (In Search of Childhood) by Brazilian poet Anilda Leão (1923-2012). Born in Maceió, capital of the Northeastern State of Alagoas, she grew up in a privileged middle-class family. Her father was a business owner and a respected politician in the 1940s and 1950s.

As the Ebola epidemic in West Africa is getting out of control, there are developing reports blaming the US for manufacturing Ebola and HIV viruses as part of its military’s bio-weapons projects using African people as guinea pigs.

Reports have pointed out that the US and a number of Western countries are using the Ebola outbreak to expand their military presence in mineral-rich Africa, challenge China’s growing engagement across the continent and offer their pharmaceutical companies the opportunity to gain financial benefits from development and sale of potential treatment drugs.  Continue reading

A heart-warming and Inspiring article on Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara- 103

On October 3, 2014 Dr. Shigeaki Hinohar turned 103. This interview was given when he was 97 years old.

 Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara, 103

Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara, 103

 Introduction:  At the age of 97 years and 4 months, Shigeaki Hinohara is one of the world’s longest-serving physicians and educators. Hinohara’s magic touch is legendary: Since 1941 he has been healing patients at St. Luke’s International Hospital in Tokyo and teaching at St. Luke’s College of Nursing.

After World War II, he envisioned a world-class hospital and college springing from the ruins of Tokyo; thanks to his pioneering spirit and business savvy, the doctor turned these institutions into the nation’s top medical facility and nursing school. Today he serves as chairman of the board of trustees at both organizations.  Continue reading

Jeff Iliff: One more reason to get a good night’s sleep

The brain uses a quarter of the body’s entire energy supply, yet only accounts for about two percent of the body’s mass. So how does this unique organ receive and, perhaps more importantly, rid itself of vital nutrients? New research suggests it has to do with sleep.

Update from Moray House Trust: October 2014 – for Guyanese Online

 Update from Moray House Trust: October 2014

In mid-September Moray House Trust was delighted to host the first in a series of slideshows by local photographers. Two photographers, Fidal Bassier and Nikhil Ramkarran, participated in this first presentation.

Fidal Bassier

Fidal Bassier

Fidal’s presentation was called ‘Art in Weddings’. Fidal is primarily a wedding and events photographer who sharpens his skills and eye by dabbling in all types of photography when he isn’t working on a paying job.

Fidal’s wedding photography is premised on the idea that mere documentary recording of events does a disservice to the occasion and the couple’s memories. Fidal brings an unusual perspective by capturing the feeling and essence of the wedding, from the small but meaningful details to the personalities of the couple and their guests. Continue reading
