Life is a story. If the mother of all literature is poetry then storytelling cannot be far behind. In fact some of the most loved poems are in the form of stories. They can soar the spirit to planets unknown and take one to the deep inner self. Consider Rumi, ‘You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.’

The classrooms have seen effective teachers use both poetry and storytelling as tools to explain the intricacies of language, to hold the attention of students and also to show how the moral of the story is relevant in a present-day context. Peter Jailall has used poems and stories in these settings with much success. He has combined poetry and storytelling in his native Guyana, Canada and the United States to bring to his audience the power of the written and spoken word.   Continue reading

French police use tear gas to disperse migrants – article + videos

French police use tear gas to disperse migrants

Riot police try to stop migrants as they renew attempts to cross into Britain via Calais Eurotunnel.

[03 Aug 2015 05:35 GMT | Al Jazeera ]  French riot police have used tear gas on migrants who attempted to cross the Eurotunnel from Calais into Britain.  More than 200 migrants tried to cross the undersea tunnel from Calais on Sunday.

The migrants broke down several levels of fencing by the tunnel’s entrance but French riot police responded by moving them away from a motorway and spraying them with tear gas.

Thousands of migrants have tried to make it into the tunnel in recent weeks with hopes of finding a way onto a train or lorry headed for Britain. At least 10 migrants have died attempting the dangerous journey since June.  Continue reading

Given the Caribbean passion for cricket and its penchant for revelry, there is no more appropriate location for a T20 tournament than the region.

It was a combination that influenced Digicel, the Irish mobile-phone company long established in the region and in its cricket, to sign a 50-year agreement with the West Indies Cricket Board, originally through Barbados-based merchant bank Verus International, for the ownership of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).    Continue reading

My Poetry Corner August 2015 features the poem “Filosofia” (Philosophy) by Brazilian poet José Guilherme de Araújo Jorge (1914-1987), a favorite poet among the people, especially the youth, for his romantic lyricism and socialist message. His romantic poetry speaks to lovers who had loved and lost.

The following stanzas from two of his romantic poems, titles unknown, were sourced from the Brazilian literary website, Pensador(Philosopher).

Seems like madness
How to explain the truth
that love, that lasts for such a short time
hurts me for an eternity.

You think you love several times…
Delusion, pure delusion,
the strange miracle of the human heart
I found difficult to understand,
and perhaps still don’t comprehend:
– Every time we love
It’s like the first time…

Business GrowthSANTIAGO, Chile, Wednesday July 29, 2015 –The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) is projecting that Caribbean economies will grow, on average, 1.7 per cent this year – its highest rate of growth since 2008.

The new projections released today during a press conference in Santiago, point to 0.5 per cent growth in the wider Latin America and Caribbean region.

But giving a breakdown of how that growth would be recorded, the United Nations body said South America would contract by 0.4 per cent while Central America and Mexico would grow 2.8 per cent, and the Caribbean would expand 1.7 per cent.
