THE HOATZIN – A bird without rules – By Dmitri Allicock

 Hoatzin bird


A bird without rules

By Dmitri Allicock

The National Bird of Guyana, and a story to tell

An evolutionary mystery with that strange smell

Redolent of cow manure, the Canje Pheasants are

A clumsy bird in flight, shape and origin, bizarre

Multiple agencies begin probe into source of Jagdeo’s wealth

OCTOBER 5, 2015 |  “Government is very much interested in determining the source of Jagdeo’s wealth among others whose salaries do not seem to match the fortunes they have acquired over the years…” Dr. Thomas Guyana’s anti corruption commission otherwise known as the State Assets Recovery Unit (SARU) has no interest in waiting on the Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo […]

My Poetry Corner October 2015 features the poem “Rise Up After the Fall” by Guyanese-Canadian poet Leonard Dabydeen. Before migrating to Canada where he is a licensed paralegal, he was a former headmaster and later lecturer at the Guyana Teachers’ Training College. Following his 2012 debut collection, Watching You: A Collection of Tetractys Poems, Dabydeen’s latest collection, Searching for You: A Collection of Tetractys & Fibonacci Poems, was published in September 2015.

The featured poem and the following excerpts are from Dabydeen’s e-book collection, 419 Poems, published in October 2014. While his poetry is mainly free verse, he also works with the modern mathematical poetic forms, tetractys and Fibonacci. Whatever the style, Dabydeen’s poetry lays bare our soul with its longings and broken dreams; its darkness and love’s light.

Hinds’Sight – The Real State of Villages …something has to be done fast

Hinds’Sight – The Real State of Villages …something has to be done fast

Dr. David Hinds

Dr. David Hinds

October 4, 2015 –  By Dr. David Hinds

I HAD the privilege of visiting several African-Guyanese villages as part of the Cuffy 250 Committee’s community outreach. During those visits, we got an opportunity to talk to villagers about the state of their communities and their views on contemporary politics. We also got to see for ourselves the real state of the villages; and what we discovered was shocking, even for those of us who interfaced with those villages on a regular basis.

It became clear to us that the change of government removed the lid on a lot of pent-up frustrations. The communities had mastered the art of masking their hurt and neglect.   Continue reading

Don’t ask where I’m from, ask where I’m a local – Taiye Selasi – TED video

Don’t ask where I’m from, ask where I’m a local – Taiye Selasi – TED video

Taiye SelasiFilmed October 2014 at TEDGlobal 2014

When someone asks you where you’re from … do you sometimes not know how to answer?

Writer Taiye Selasi speaks on behalf of “multi-local” people, who feel at home in the town where they grew up, the city they live now and maybe another place or two. “How can I come from a country?” she asks. “How can a human being come from a concept?”   [see video link below] Continue reading
