OPINION: Attempted civil coup d’etats in Guyana – by GHK Lall

OPINION: Attempted civil coup d’etats in Guyana – by GHK Lall

There is a problem; in fact, many serious problems.  No one wants to hear any questions; no one wants to provide any answers.  Call them silent, speechless, deliberately and determinedly dumb when such tactics suit their purposes.  The same pervasive resistance-be it individuals, corporate citizens, or legal entities-have no documents to furnish and no interest in furnishing any.  Not a blade of grass has a new equivalent: not one piece of paper; not one straight answer.  Call it a continuing bloodless attempted coup, a paper rebellion with far reaching consequences.

Royal Wedding Caribbean and Guyanese Connections

Royal Wedding Caribbean and Guyanese Connections

Here are the connections:

Conductor of choir at Royal wedding is of Guyanese parentage

Etched among the outstanding moments of the Royal wedding joining Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, was the performance of The Kingdom Choir, which sang a rendition of the Ben E King classic “Stand by Me”, led by conductor Karen Gibson.

Gibson, an award-winning choir conductor and workshop leader, born to Guyanese parents in the UK in 1963, was, according to news site News Americas, one of two musicians of Caribbean roots hired to perform at the historical event. The other musician was 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, whose father is of Antiguan and Barbudan heritage.   READ MORE

CHINA: Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge – the world’s longest sea bridge

China is opening the world’s longest  sea bridge — and it contains enough steel to build 60 Eiffel Towers

Click here to join World Malayali Club

Undersea tunnel of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is seen, in Zhuhai city,  south China’s Guangdong province, Wednesday, March 28, 2018.

China is the midst of several megaprojects that will transform its cities.

Over the next decade, China plans to encourage 250 million  people – roughly 29 times New York City’s population – to move into the country’s growing megacities. To cope with that huge migration, the country has invested tens of billions of dollars in giant infrastructure projects.

In may 2018, China opened its most ambitious megaproject yet: a bridge that connects Hong Kong, Macau, and the mainland’s southern city of Zhuhai. Stretching 34 miles long, it’s the world’s longest cross-sea bridge, according  to the AFP.

Take a look below.             Continue reading

TOURISM: Branding Guyana, capitalizing on our traditions

TOURISM: Branding Guyana, capitalizing on our traditions

Leonard Gildarie

By Leonard Gildarie

I grew up in Enmore, a quiet East Coast Demerara sugar-producing village where traditions abound. The ways of the people were set. The community centre was a gathering place for cricket and Sunday reveling. The daily and Friday markets were but a welcome getaway from the daily grind and travails.

Those days were heady and looking back, I would trade some things for a return of those days, where everyone was on a first name basis with the rest of the village.

I could not help but think of Enmore as I watched and marveled yesterday at the deep traditions of Britain as Prince Harry wedded Meghan Markle.        Continue reading

The Geopolitics of Love and Hate: Dr. Jamal Wakim | An-Nahar

The Geopolitics of Love and Hate:

Will We See Russian Troops Parading One Day in Washington?

Dr. Jamal Wakim | An-Nahar

Like the Germans and the French before them, the Americans are attacking Russia through Ukraine –  despite a love affair which is at least a thousand years old.

Russian president Vladimir Putin chose to leave the G20 summit held in Brisbane, Australia early after being ill treated by the hosts and by the leaders of the Western World, “because he refused to give ground” in the Ukraine crisis.

The declarations of these leaders adopted the same old “innocent tone” to distance themselves from any responsibility in causing the crisis, or in solving it by accepting any agreement with the Russians.   Continue reading

GuySuCo: massive procurement fraud – Billions wasted and stolen

GuySuCo has over $3B in outdated Fiat tractor spares in stock

– growing evidence of massive procurement fraud over time

The suspicions were there all along. But the evidence was missing. Until now.
In recent years, the state-owned Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) has been asking for and receiving billions of dollars annually in bailouts to pay workers and creditors.

The fortunes of the company have been steadily declining, with production plunging and poor maintenance, theft and the quality of agriculture at its lowest. Despite that, consecutive administrations facing watchful unions and a 16,000-plus strong workforce were unwilling to resist GuySuCo’s demands for cash.    Continue reading

“THE LOTTERY TICKETS” – Short story by Royden V. Chan 1995

“THE LOTTERY TICKETS”

Short story by Royden V. Chan 1995

Tumereng Landing 1960 Mazaruni River Guyana

According to the Buddha, man himself is the maker of his own destiny. He has none to blame for his lot since he alone is responsible for his own life. He makes his own life for better or for worse.

When you read the tale of Aubrey and Elsie Robinson, you can decide if this is true or if we are powerless pawns manipulated by conditions and circumstances beyond our control.

England’s First Black Queen, Sophie Charlotte Born 1744

England’s First Black Queen, Sophie Charlotte Born 1744
by GDN Shared Post May 21, 2018

Queen Charlotte – Portrait by Sir Allan Ramsay. 1769.

Princess Sophie Charlotte was born in 1744. She was the first black queen of England and the last queen of America. She reigned during the American revolution and was our queen before we became independent. Charlotte NC is named after her.

Queen Charlotte, the actual first bi-racial member of royalty, also happens to be Prince Harry’s great-great-great-great-great-grandmother. That’s right. She’s Queen Victoria’s grandmother. 

Many of the portraits portray her as very fair skinned, which was the fashion of the time. She most likely was highly powdered to appear more “fashionable”.  18th century skin lightening was lead based. Although this era was known as the Age of Enlightenment, most fashionable men and women poisoned themselves with red and white lead make-up and powder.
