Commentary: Guyana should come first and then… – By Leonard Gildarie

The Story within the Story… Guyana should come first and then…

Leonard Gildarie

A dear friend of mine and her family are here on vacation. She has lived in New York for the past two decades, has her own small business, and a daughter in college. She is seriously thinking of coming back here.

For many Guyanese living in Queens especially, life is tough in the private sector. Several small businesses along Liberty Avenue have been forced to close because of a drop in sales and the fact that more efficient and less costly services are being offered by the deep-pocket competitors.

It would mirror what is happening in the region and in Guyana, and drives home the reality that we are not alone in the world.     Continue reading

Earth Day 2017 - Adopt the Planet - NASA

Saturday, April 22nd, is Earth Day 2017. The theme is: Environmental & Climate Science Literacy. The three-year campaign begins with a March for Science rally on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

Guyanese artist Antonio Butts believes that all of us were born artists.

He says it is up to us to realize our latent talent. “I did not discover art; art discovered me.

As children we are all born artists…born with creativity. Some are inspired, but only some realize and discover it. Some of the first (indigenous) peoples of the world: The Amerindians, Mayans and Aborigines were also the first artists…it was a form of expression for them,” Butts shares.

“I was hungry and determined to learn, so I would go to other secondary schools such as Central High School and Queen’s College and speak to the art teacher and sit in on their art classes.   Continue reading

Guyana aims to shift economy from gold to green – by Molly Bergen

Guyana aims to shift economy from gold to green

Alluvial gold mining in the rainforests of Guyana.

Alluvial gold mining in the rainforests of Guyana. This is a medium-scale operation; many Guyanese work in the artisanal, small-scale gold mining sector, which is built around removing minerals from topsoils. As the gold runs out, the supply accessible from the surface will be the first to disappear, leaving many people in search of new livelihoods. (© Pete Oxford/iLCP)      Continue reading
