Hilton
– Investors given ‘green light’ to start construction

A MEGA Hilton Hotel will soon tower over the community of McDoom on the East Bank of Demerara (EBD), where large businesses, particularly those related to the nascent oil-and-gas industry, have already started to ‘sprout.’      Continue reading

“As soon as you turn it on, is not yours anymore”

  • All technologies of mankind can be used for positive or negative outcomes.
  • The smartphone is a powerful computer that is a boon to our everyday living. HOWEVER.
  • Is your phone listening to ALL your conversations. Is it tracking all of your moves using its GPS.
  • Is it a tool to help you, or is it a tool for others to sell to you and / or to control you.

OPINION: Scrap metal cocaine shipment from Guyana – Just another chapter

By    

Yet again, Guyana has been implicated in a major international transshipment of cocaine.

This time a whopping 11.5 tonnes intercepted by the Belgian authorities this month at the port of Antwerp amid scrap metal. Yet again, as has been the pattern over the last two decades, it appears that no-one will be held accountable here for the shipment. The police and the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) are fairly adept at apprehending small-scale drug enterprises but have failed at these large-scale cocaine operations which appear to radiate with impunity from these shores even with the presence of the US Drug Enforcement Administration.

ART: Ron Savory: A Guyanese quest – Moray House Presentation – By Alim Hosein

Ron Savory 1933-2019

of the interesting things about Ron Savory is that while he was an active artist, and an innovator in Guyanese painting, very little critical work has been done on him. This is true of all Guyanese artists, but some have received scholarly attention in Guyana and even abroad, such as Stanley Greaves, Philip Moore, and Aubrey Williams.         

Savory felt this lack of recognition, as his niece Denise Savory-Archer wrote in a posthumous tribute to him in 2019: “He always spoke of the lack of appreciation for his art throughout the Caribbean.      Continue reading

OPINION: All is not well in Guyana – By Mosa Telford

By

Last week the world celebrated Diwali. Diwali is a celebration of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. In this period of Earth’s history, we need an abundance of light. We seem to have sunk into darkness – moral depravity and despair – surviving what is and fearing what is to come.

Many are longing for the order of the past refusing to accept that the world we once knew no longer exists. Some may describe what we are experiencing as a time of evil; that the dark forces of the world have taken the reins, steering mankind deeper into hopelessness and death.            Continue reading

Reflections: America Divided against Itself – By Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision ~ Guyana – Brazil – USA

Reflections: America Divided against Itself – By Rosaliene Bacchus

I am no stranger to divisive racist politics. My lived experience as a former British subject in what was then British Guiana provides the setting for my debut novel, Under the Tamarind Tree. I witnessed the effectiveness of divisiveness as a weapon for maintaining minority control of a population. When deployed across a nation, it threatens and destroys our relationships with co-workers, neighbors, friends, and even family members. It is now happening within my own nuclear family.    Continue reading

MUSIC: REGGAE: Bob Marley’s 30 greatest songs – ranked! – with Videos – The Guardian

Bob Marley

As Tuff Gong releases a limited edition series of Marley albums, we pick the greatest work of reggae’s biggest star

THE GUARDIAN – by 19 November 2020

30. Rude Boy (1965)

The ska-era Wailers launch themselves into the 60s Jamaican vogue for singles either praising or condemning the violent Kingston “rude boy” youth cult. Tellingly, given the socio-political songs that lay ahead of him, Marley focuses on the deprived circumstances that birthed the phenomenon: “Want it want it – can’t get it, get it get it – no want it.”                Continue reading

MUSIC: The Tradewinds Saga – By Dave Martins + Music video ‘Honeymooning Couple’

By Dave Martins –  November 15, 2020 – Stabroek News

Following a recent gyaff with my long-time Guyanese musician friend George Jardim, who was asking me about the emergence of the Tradewinds band, I wrote a few lines which I later saw as well-suited to this SO IT GO column. Here is what I wrote George:

Okay, Jardim. Soon after migrating to Toronto in 1955, and seeing all the entertainment spots operating there, six nights a week, I had my mind set on that market and a year or so after I landed I started a four-piece combo, The Latins, doing the usual Guyana mix of Latin, MOR pop, and kaiso.        Continue reading
