Welcome to the Guyanese Online Blog.

This Blog’s first entry was on February 9, 2010 and the first Newsletter was published in March 2010. It was created by Cyril Bryan, as a project to help Guyanese in the Diaspora to be connected to some of the positive news from Guyana, as well as to the work being done by Guyanese organisations around the world.   Blog entries are inserted regularly and there was also a monthly newsletter, emailed to thousands of Guyanese around the world.

Guyana History: Johnny Carpenter and the Mekdeci family – By Freddie Kissoon

Johnny Carpenter and the Mekdeci family – By Freddie Kissoon

In my column of Sunday, May 20, 2018, captioned, “White fans didn’t know he was an East Indian boy” I wrote the following; “I remember when I was small there was a shoe store at Camp and Regent Streets named Shu-All. The owners passed as Portuguese but they were Syrians.”

Yesterday, the prominent, Portuguese-Guyanese businessman, Johnny Carpenter, came up to me in the National Park. I pass Mr. Carpenter daily in the park and the customary hello follows. But yesterday, while walking my dog, Mr. Carpenter asked for two minutes of my time. I told him he can get more than two minutes.
What Johnny Carpenter had to say to me was amusing. But there also wasn’t a funny side to it considering what I did to Carpenter.      Continue reading

British Guiana (Now Guyana) – The Great Fire of 1945

The Great Fire  of 1945

Re- Stabroek News May 7th. 2000

The RA&CS building ablaze

As people jumped up in the streets on Mashramani, they probably did not realize that in addition to being the thirtieth anniversary of Guyana’s advent to republican status, the day also marked the fifty-fifth anniversary of possibly the most destructive fire in Georgetown’s history.

On February 23, 1945, the Great Fire, as it came to be known, devastated the commercial heart of the capital, and consumed a host of historical and architectural gems which had given the city its aesthetic flair. In addition, it laid waste the RA&CS building and its unique collection of books and papers pertaining to the past of this country.     Continue reading

Strongmen Have the Edge with Trump. Why Not Maduro? – Commentary

Strongmen Have the Edge with Trump. Why Not Maduro?

Michael Shifter and David Toppelberg | The New York Times

Nicolás Maduro

WASHINGTON — Since President Trump took office almost 18 months ago, commentators have remarked on his apparent affinity for strongmen. As The Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman commented, “Trump […] seems to prefer dictators to our democratic allies everywhere.”

To be sure, this doesn’t mean that Mr. Trump can’t have acceptable working relations with democratic leaders, such as President Emmanuel Macron of France. But, in general terms, he seems more at ease with — and respectful of — authoritarian leaders such as the presidents Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt and, of course, Vladimir Putin of Russia. In short, strongmen have the edge.                          Continue reading

Thoughts on the Demolition of the St. Rose’s High School –  by Francis Quamina Farrier

Thoughts on the Demolition of the St. Rose’s High School –  by Francis Quamina Farrier

Francis Quamina Farrier

The demolition of the St. Rose’s High School on Church Street, South Cummingsburg in Georgetown, Guyana, began on Monday July 9, 2018, after it was decided by the Board of Governors, that the structure had reached a state of disrepair.

So the demolition was inevitable due to its terminal condition. But that does not ease the pain of many present and former students of the St. Rose’s High School, as well as for many who have never been students of that institution of higher learning, the pain is no less.      Continue reading

When the decisive blows arrived the entire squad piled on top of one another in the victory scrum. Hugo Lloris, the goalkeeper, had run the entire length of the pitch to join in the celebrations. All the substitutes were throwing themselves into this heap of arms and legs. There were even members of the backroom staff contemplating joining in, and who could blame them? France were on their way to winning the World Cup and a party was under way behind the goal where the tricolours were fluttering.

STEMGuyana’s National Scratch Coding League In Full Swing

36036508 785083005213838 2403530017431617536 o

Team Deaf Association

Fifteen teams representing schools, community clubs and religious organizations in regions 3, 4, 6, 7 and 10 are participating in Guyana’s first Nationwide Robot and Coding technology competition. This first program of its kind in Guyana, serves as a pilot to gauge the interest of participants and to help organizers work out potential issues associated with automating and organizing a nationwide competition among teams so widely dispersed in Guyana.

Organizer Karen Abrams stated that, “students will learn critical soft skills like collaboration, communication and conflict resolution while strengthening their academic knowledge, critical thinking, problem solving and technical skills. There is simply no downside to youth participation in this exciting new competition” Abrams noted that, “the pilot league was launched to expose and engage our young people in STEM related activities and then careers. What we have found is that, the more engaged they are, the more they learn, the more they are able to grasp pretty complicated concepts. We are preparing them for future which is unknown but which we bet will be kinder to those young people who are comfortable with the backend of technology”


The negatives of ICT are now affecting all of us – By Adam Harris

The negatives of ICT are now affecting all of us

Jul 15, 2018  Features / Columnists,- By Adam Harris

When I was a boy growing up I heard talk about robots taking over jobs that people were doing. It sounded like science fiction, but it was not long before it became reality. People were afraid of the technology because they saw themselves being put on the sidelines.

It turned out that as technology developed new jobs appeared. The centres that produced cars introduced robots. Soon robots controlled the assembly line and of course, cars were produced faster and with near impeccable finishes.          Continue reading
