Capacity crowd defies rains for Presidential Inauguration

Capacity crowd defies rains for Presidential Inauguration

MAY 27, 2015 | BY |  By Desilon Daniels

When Guyanese woke up on Independence Day, many were disheartened to see the overcast, gloomy sky that met them; the day was meant to be one for celebration and, more importantly, one for the inauguration of Guyana’s new leader, President David Granger.

Jagdeo in the dock: Power goes one day – By Freddie Kissoon + videos

Jagdeo in the dock: Power goes one day

Jagdeo at News Conference

Fmr. President Bharrat Jagdeo

The first thing that came to my mind when I read that Bharrat Jagdeo, which this column will emphasize was the former strongman, was summoned to appear in court or face arrest were the words of President Jagdeo to striking air traffic controllers.

The strike began while President Jagdeo was out of the country and on returning to Guyana from New York agreed to a request by the strikers to meet with them. He told them that he heard that on deplaning, they had planned to picket him and if that was done he would have fired all of them.

This was the strongman at the pinnacle of power. Now power is gone.   Continue reading

World’s Most Efficient Solar Electricity System?

In South Africa’s Kalahari desert, Swedish company Ripasso Energy is testing its new small-scale concentrated solar energy system which directly converts 32% of the sun’s energy hitting the mirrors to grid-available electric power, compared to roughly half that for standard solar panels.
