TRAVEL: Why The American Car Fleet Is Getting So Old – Video

TRAVEL: Why The American Car Fleet Is Getting So Old – Video

CNBC – 26 September 2021

In 2021, the average age of vehicles on the road reached a record 12.1 years. Every driver that chooses to hold on to a car for another year is postponing a trip to the dealership, and some industry analysts wonder if rising vehicle ages and prices indicate trouble for new car sales in the future. Automakers are stuffing cars with new technology and improvements but will that be enough to keep buyers wanting the latest and greatest?

OIL: ‘Most transformational project in Guyana’s history’ can deliver huge benefits- says energy expert

Roger Kranenburg

The gas-to-energy project proposed by the Government of Guyana has the potential to not only create new industries and transform the economy but also represents the most environmentally sustainable option currently available to the country.  This is according to Roger Kranenburg, an international executive who specialises in the energy, electric utility, and telecommunications industries. Kranenburg declared that the pros of the project far outweigh the cons.

The gas-to-energy project will utilise associated natural gas from ExxonMobil’s Liza field with the pipeline passing through Crane and other communities before being landed at Wales on the West Bank of Demerara where the power generation facility will be constructed.      Continue reading

GUYANA: The Sweet Drink Wars Prestige Competitions: Tie-ins – By Vibert Cambridge

September 12, 2021 – By

Tie-in marketing is an approach in which a company purposefully creates an association between the company, its products or services, and whatever is trending or hot in the collective consciousness at that moment. Since 1956, the hot beverage in British Guiana has been Banks Beer. In 1955, under the slogan “people’s capitalism,” Peter D’Aguiar launched the public company Banks Breweries Ltd, the first brewery in British Guiana. It made good sense as an import substitution. Beer and other malted beverages had previously been imported. Substantial amounts of beer, ale, and stout were consumed in the hot and humid colony.

The term “people’s capitalism,” although seemingly oxymoronic, was brilliant in the context of the political jargon of the time. Share price was BG$1. This allowed working-class people to invest in the company.        Continue reading

GUYANA: Tribute To Michael Gilkes: YouTube Recording Available – Sunday 26th September 2021

Paying tribute to Michael Gilkes: So Many Skins

PRESENTED BY MORAY HOUSE TRUST

Michael Gilkes flyer.png
Paying tribute to the late Michael Gilkes, Ken Corsbie hailed ‘the volume and range of his work [and] his accumulated productivity over a lifetime as a poet, scholar, playwright, theatre practitioner and actor.’ To meet Michael was to sense immediately that he was a man of ‘many skins’, able to shed light effortlessly on Guyanese poetry, literature, art, plays and music and to add a regional and/or an international perspective. Other scholars might acquire a similar depth of knowledge about Wilson Harris or Edgar Mittelholzer or Denis Williams or some other local luminary. Few could corral them into a cast to populate the canvas of our complex culture with Michael’s facility.

Living Off-Grid for 17 Years on a Self-Built Island Homestead – Built with Salvaged Materials

Shadow built this incredible floating island with salvaged and reclaimed materials. The island comprises a 2-story float home, a floating chicken coop, floating gardens, and even a floating compost shed! He’s been living on the water for 17 years and working hard to protect the Widgeon Slough area in BC, Canada.

He gathers wood from the river to use as firewood, he grows some of his own fresh food in barrel gardens, and he collects fresh water from a nearby spring. He filters his greywater on a floating raft with multiple plant and husk filtration layers, and he composts his food and human waste to ensure that nothing goes overboard.          Continue reading

GUYANA: Indigenous Artist and Regional Development Officer – Anil Roberts – is a ‘Special Person’

 Sep 19, 2021 Kaieteur News – By Rehanyna Ramsa

Anil Roberts

Championing the cause of Guyana’s first peoples…

“To experience the culture there [in the Rupununi] and the position I am in today at the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs, which is to be able to help my fellow Amerindian brothers and sisters within the villages on governance, project development, and support is what I view as great.”

At any successful entity or corporation, it is common knowledge that hiring the right people for the job produces better results for achieving the desired end.

For this week’s ‘Special Person,’ this certainly proves true. As someone who is always championing the cause of the indigenous peoples as an artist and Principal Regional Development Officer (PRDO) attached to the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs, Anil Roberts is constantly striving towards preserving and advocating for their rights, culture and heritage.

GUYANA: Time for Venezuela to stop bullying little Guyana over 180-year-old border dispute– By Mohamed Hamaludin

 — By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro and opposition forces got together in August to work out an accord which would hopefully ease international sanctions in a country with the largest oil reserves and one of the worst economic slumps.

The meeting took place in Norway – the second in two years–and participants managed to unite on one issue which had nothing to do with sanctions: a 180-year-old claim to “the historic and inalienable rights of Venezuela over the territory of Essequibo.”

That territory is two-thirds of Guyana, whose government said it “firmly rejects the agreement [as] an overt threat to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Guyana,” adding, “Guyana cannot be used as an altar of sacrifice for settlement of Venezuela’s internal political differences.” The opposition APNU+AFC Coalition affirmed the country’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity.”  The government and the opposition noted the issue is before the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the latest stage of a dispute which began in 1841 involving two wholly unequal neighbors.      Continue reading

GUYANA: Persons without FDA-approved jabs can now access approved COVID-19 vaccine – US CDC

Government’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign using the Russian Sputnik V vaccine has not been approved by the WHO or the FDA.

Sep 21, 2021- Kaieteur News – In its most recent recommendations, the United States’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that “people who received all or some of the recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not listed for emergency use by WHO (World Health Organisation) and not authorised by FDA (US. Food and Drugs Administration) may be offered a complete FDA authorised COVID-19 vaccine series.”

The recommendation also states that persons should wait at least 28 days after being administered the last dose of the non-authorised vaccine before being administered the FDA-authorised vaccine.  (Note – The Russian Sputnik V Vaccine is a non-authorized vaccine. It has been the most widely distributed vaccine in Guyana, purchased by the Government for millions of US dollars)        Continue reading
