Guyana Elections: Jagdeo warns US visas will be hard to get if opposition elected

Jagdeo warns US visas will be hard to get if opposition elected

Former President Bharat JagdeoMonday, 30 March 2015 – Written by 

Sunday’s rally marked the official commencement of the party’s election campaign ahead of the May 11 general and regional elections.

Former president Bharat Jagdeo told a rally in Kitty on Sunday that the opposition parties, if elected into power, will create adverse conditions which will force Guyanese to apply for visas in increasing numbers, thereby forcing the United States (U.S.) Embassy in Guyana to clamp down on visa distribution here.

As hundreds of Peoples Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) supporters, decked in their white and/or red tops, listened intently, cheering for him ever so often, the former president outlined several predictions which did not adduce evidence to substantiate.

Profile- Roy Brummell: Teacher, Artist, Folklorist – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Roy Brummell is a man of many parts. He is a writer, teacher, folklorist and artist and if he is the mood he can even paint a house with many beautiful colors.

Roy was born at Dartmouth Village in the Essequibo coast of Guyana and he went to school there. His mom Burley and his dad Joel Headley Brummell worked hard to provide for and to educate the family. Roy attended St. Barnabas and Darmouth Government Schools. He said that his teachers played an important role in his life. Sidney Williams, the sports teacher, lived across the street and he would encourage Roy to take an active role in sports. Cyril Sewsankar was the reading teacher and he would send across reading materials that included magazines and newspapers and the Reader’s Digest.  Continue reading

Your US-Brazil Trade Assist: Doing Business with Brazil

USA Trade with Brazil 2005-2014

USA Trade with Brazil 2005-2014
Source: Your US-Brazil Trade Assist

Finally…I have completed my yearly three-month project of updating my website featuring Your US-Brazil Trade Assist. For the most part, it’s tedious work—checking for broken links—but important for providing users with useful and current information.

Based on the US International Trade in Goods and Services January 2015, published on March 6 by the US Census Bureau, the above chart shows US trade with Brazil over the last ten years. Brazil is America’s ninth largest trade partner with total trade (imports and exports) in goods and services valued at US$72.8 billion, representing 1.8 percent of US trade with all countries. America’s top three trading partners are Canada (16.6%), China (14.9%), and Mexico (13.5%). As is evident in the chart, since 2008 US exports to Brazil far exceed its imports. Given Brazil’s weak economy, the contraction in exports in 2014…

Guyana Elections: I Fear for Vanessa Kissoon’s life – By Dr. David Hinds

I Fear for Vanessa Kissoon’s life

Dr. David Hinds

Dr. David Hinds

By Dr. David Hinds

I write in solidarity with Vanessa Kissoon. This young woman has been bearing too much on her own. I have hesitated in the past to say anything about her travails because I did not want to become embroiled in the affairs of a party to which I do not belong. And I still don’t.  From my estimation Ms. Kissoon is of the political type that elites would rather not have around. She is working class, fearless, independent and most of all driven by an instinct for resistance not as a convenient tool but as a way of political life. I am sure she, like all of us, she has not always conducted herself in the most disciplined manner.

According to news reports Ms. Kissoon heckled at a recent PPP meeting in Linden. The newspapers originally reported that she was subsequently arrested. The public only leaned that this was not true when Ms. Kissoon wrote to the media. We then read in the media that she may still be charged. The PPP media also reported that Ms. Kissoon’s party has condemned her behavior. Her party has not denied this report.   Continue reading

Anand Giridharadas: A tale of two Americas. And the mini-mart where they collided

Ten days after 9/11, a shocking attack at a Texas mini-mart shattered the lives of two men: the victim and the attacker. In this stunning talk, Anand Giridharadas, author of “The True American,” tells the story of what happened next. It’s a parable about the two paths an American life can take, and a powerful call for reconciliation.    [Interactive Transcript]

Water is the next big commodity Guyana needs to take advantage of – Stanley Ming

Water is the next big commodity Guyana needs to take advantage of – Stanley Ming

Guyana should look at how it will position itself so that it can take advantage of the impending “water market” as water will be the next big commodity on the global market, says prominent businessman and retired politician Stanley Ming.

His statement was made at the presentation of a conceptual proposal to media operatives, entitled “An Overview of Options and Opportunities (O3) for National Development”. The proposal is a strategic plan composed by Ming, Supriya Singh, Dr Eric Phillips and Major General (retd) Joseph Singh. Ming believes, if implemented, the proposal can serve as a roadmap that will drastically transform the country’s economy and infrastructure for the better by 2030.   Continue reading

The new Russian presence in the Caribbean – By David Jessop – Commentary

 The new Russian presence in the Caribbean – The View from Europe: 
Published on March 28, 2015  –  By David Jessop – Commentary
Over the last five years Russian interest in the Caribbean has been growing steadily; so that today Moscow’s diplomatic profile and its economic presence in a number of Caribbean nations is now stronger than at any time since the end of the Cold War.

Russia also appears to see the region as possessing a similar world view, one in which it can demonstrate its desire to counterbalance what it regards as US exceptionalism; where the restoration of its special relationship with a changing Cuba will be strategically significant; and where interesting numerical possibilities exist for voting at the UN and in other international fora.

Shit White Feminists Need To Stop Doing

Originally posted on The Belle Jar:

I’m a white feminist, and let me tell you something: white feminism* is pretty bullshit. It’s exclusive, oppressive, and serves to further marginalize the people who are most impacted by misogyny. Unfortunately, white feminism is also the western status quo of feminism, meaning that white feminists have the biggest platforms, have increased access to resources and media, and are generally considered to be The Voice of Feminism. In theory, someone truly interested in equality would use these assets to amplify the voices of women of colour. In practice, white supremacy is a real thing and white feminists often seem to forget that their white privilege makes it easy as hell to trample over women of colour as they work to dismantle the patriarchy.

So, in honour of International Women’s Day, here is a non-exhaustive list of Shit White Feminists Need to Stop Doing:

1. Believing Their Experiences of Marginalization Are…
