Guyana Memories: “I’ll always Remember” and “I’ll never Forget” – by Francis Quamina Farrier

Dave Martins with Farrier

Like so many Guyanese and many other nationals around the world, I am a Dave Martins fan. I love his music with that rich bouncy Caribbean beat. I love his lyrics, always with something to learn and think about. And during the past decade or so, I have come to enjoy reading his weekly column in the Sunday Stabroek News.

In a more recent article entitled “Lessons I never forgot”, in which he was reflecting on his learning experiences while an up-and-coming musical entertainer, I couldn’t help observing his use of the term, “I never forgot”,  which was in the Headline.  It got me to thinking of something I was doing unwittingly for many decades, with the use of that term,  “I’ll never forget”, and it’s twin, “I’ll always remember”, and realised that somehow I was using both terms, which I suppose means the same thing, very selectively.    Continue reading

Business: Sears – The Store That Changed America – Declares Bankruptcy

Countz Lifestyle

Sears, the once-dominant retail chain that changed how Americans shopped and lived, has filed for bankruptcy, CNN reports.

The 132-year-old company has been struggling for several years and is drowning in debt. The final straw was a $134 million debt payment due Monday that it could not afford.

Sears Holdings (SHLD), the parent company of Sears and Kmart, is among dozens of prominent retailers to declare bankruptcy in the era of Amazon (AMZN).

The filing in federal bankruptcy court in New York came in the early hours of Monday morning. The company issued a statement saying it intends to stay in business, keeping open stores that are profitable, along with the Sears and Kmart websites.

As of the filing, about 700 stores remained open and the company employed 68,000 workers. That’s down from 1,000 stores with 89,000 employees that it had as recently as February.

But Sears said that it’s…

Profile: The late Romesh Singh – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Profile: Romesh Singh -Engineer, Activist and Teacher

Romesh Singh, also known as Romesh Chandra Dutt was a person of many interests. He built radios and radars, set up communication links that brought the world closer and never lost sight of the fact that ordinary people matter. Romesh was one of the foremost telecommunications engineers of his generation that designed complex systems.

He was unassuming but firm in his convictions, and above all, he had an abiding love for his homeland, Guyana.

When you were with Romesh you knew that he stood for what was right. He did not play around with words, or said one thing and meant something else. Romesh was the genuine article, a scholar with varied interests, outspoken in his views, and always giving of his best to the community.
