It is not uncommon to hear people say “it’s a man’s job,” when referring to specific tasks. Although this statement is not true at all, it still has a certain basis inherent in human biology.
The differences between the sexes do not only add up to our reproductive organs, but also the structure of our bodies, the type of hormones that are secreted, and the changes that have occurred over many years in the evolutionary processes. Today you’ll discover what the surprising biological differences are between men and women.

Inside One of America’s Last Pencil Factories – New York Times Feature

Pencil Production

pencil is a little wonder-wand: a stick of wood that traces the tiniest motions of your hand as it moves across a surface. I am using one now, making weird little loops and slashes to write these words. As a tool, it is admirably sensitive.

The lines it makes can be fat or thin, screams or whispers, blocks of concrete or blades of grass, all depending on changes of pressure so subtle that we would hardly notice them in any other context. (The difference in force between a bold line and nothing at all would hardly tip a domino.) And while a pencil is sophisticated enough to track every gradation of the human hand, it is also simple enough for a toddler to use.    Continue reading

Guyana, the NEW Frontier – on the Barbados Underground Blog

Barbados Underground

Submitted by The Mahogany Coconut Group

A decade ago, many Guyanese living in the Diaspora, would have been negative about returning home. They feared mostly the racial and political tensions. Some sought to live in other Caribbean islands and were often accused of accepting lower wages than the workers in those countries. In many ways, Guyana had become the butt of many “island jokes” about its weak currency and shortage of consumer goods, taken for granted throughout the region.

Those travelling to Guyana on vacations and business often were amazed that Guyanese themselves, were so negative about such a bountiful land with natural resources not found in any other country in the region. They also marvelled at the gracious manner of the Guyanese people, even in the toughest of times. The Guyanese are known for their excellent cuisine and their incredible crafts people. They have long established themselves as intellectual…

Ancestral Footprints: East Indian Indentureship – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

If you took a plane from JFK Air- port to Calcutta the chances are you will be tired by the time you get there. On May 5th 1838 the history of the Caribbean changed dramatically as 396 East Indians landed on the shores of British Guiana. This was no joyride and there was no time for niceties.

The journey from Calcutta to British Guiana was fraught with hardships, and like the slave ships of an earlier era there were deaths on the way. The two ships that landed were the Whitby and the Hesperus. Their cargo was to usher in a new form of slavery that changed the complexion of the colony.
