Venezuela threatens further action if more Guyanese found in Essequibo waters

Venezuela’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jorge Arreaza

Kaieteur News – Venezuela’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jorge Arreaza, yesterday threatened further action against Guyanese found in Essequibo waters after Guyana gave a firm rebuke to its detention of two Guyanese fishing vessels off the Essequibo Coast on Thursday last.

“Venezuela,” he said, “rejects the Communique of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana [of January 24] on the operation of the Bolivarian National Navy and reiterates that it will not allow illegal incursions of any kind into its territory, exercising the defence of its sovereignty.”    Continue reading

BUSINESS: The office is dead! Long live the office in a post-pandemic world – Opinion

By The Conversation – July 24, 2000

Introduction: The future of the office has become an open question after the coronavirus lockdown forced tens of millions of Americans to work from home. Will office workers flock back to their cubicles and water coolers when the pandemic ends? Or will employees want to hold on to their newfound freedom and flexibility, while employers eye the lower costs of the lack of a physical footprint?

At least a few companies have already answered this question: Twitter, for example, says most of its employees can continue working from home forever, making the office merely a place to meet clients. We asked three scholars to weigh in on the future of the office.        Continue reading

Guyana calls for release of fishing boats intercepted by Venezuelan navy

Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Georgetown

Guyana yesterday called for the release of two fishing boats intercepted by the Venezuelan Navy in this country’s waters on Thursday.

In a statement dated yesterday and released by the Department of Public Information today, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that  the Lady Nayera and the Sea Wolf – operating off the coast of Waini Point within Guyana’s Exclusive Economic Zone were intercepted by a Venezuelan naval vessel and instructed to chart a course to Port Guiria in Venezuela where the boats and crew have been detained.            Continue reading

ARTS: The rise and rise of professional theatre in Guyana – By Al Creighton

One of the important cultural developments was the rise of professional theatre in the Caribbean.  This started in Jamaica roughly around 1970 and gradually moved southward across the region to Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados, eventually reaching to Guyana in 1981.

But even this neat outline requires qualification, because professionalism in stage performance and an industry in show business had been thriving for several decades before that. Furthermore, the history of theatre in the region will show two major streams that coexisted in segregated fashion throughout the centuries of colonialism. One was the performance of dramatic plays on the western/European stage, while the other was the theatre of the folk that developed during slavery.            Continue reading

As the news talks about enforcing mandatory lockdowns, and handing out money to citizens… There has been a problem that has been rapidly expanding in the background of all of this news. …And It is a problem that the world has never really seen before. In fact… it might create a crisis that won’t just be felt in the next week, the next month, or even the next year… but it might be felt for several decades to come…

HISTORY: The History of the Three Guyanas – Video

HISTORY: The History of the Three Guyanas – Video

By Sebastian ioan

There’s a region in South America that seems awkward, out of its place, but quite interesting. This is a place where Spanish, French, Portuguese, Dutch and English speakers all meet, where the French and EU flags wave on polls, and where indigenous groups live side by side with African communities. I’m talking about the Guianas, the north-eastern chunk of South America. And we’re going to explore it today.

USA POLITICS: Donald Trump Is Out. Are We Ready to Talk About How He Got In? – Opinion

“The First White President,” revisited 

   — Ta-Nehisi Coates | The Atlantic

I’ve been thinking about Barbara Tuchman’s medieval history, A Distant Mirror, over the past couple of weeks. The book is a masterful work of anti-romance, a cold-eyed look at how generations of aristocrats and royalty waged one of the longest wars in recorded history, all while claiming the mantle of a benevolent God. The disabusing begins early. In the introduction, Tuchman examines the ideal of chivalry and finds, beneath the poetry and codes of honor, little more than myth and delusion.          Continue reading

US POLITICS: Biden’s Administration – Is It like Obama’s ninth year presidency? – By Yvonne Sam

On certain issues will Biden’s administration residency feel like Obama’s ninth year presidency?

   By Yvonne Sam

As Joe Biden took the oath of office as the 46th President of the United States, the ongoing debate over the validity of the  election itself obscured any discussion of what is to be expected during his administration. Former president Donald J. Trump spent significant time subverting executive actions by President Barack Obama, and as such we should expect from Joe Biden a return to the Obama administration policies. Based on statements made during the Biden campaign, here are some of what the new administration should be expected to do.          Continue reading
