Guyana Politics: Matter now lies with GECOM – President Granger

Guyana: Chief Elections Officer unlikely to budge on results based on CCJ ruling – Peter Wickham

Political Scientist Peter Wickham on Wednesday said he did not expect the Chief Election Officer, Keith Lowenfield to present results to the seven-member Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) based on pronouncements by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) of what constitutes valid votes and the settlement of grievance through an elections petition.

“I am confident that he will say that there is no one can that can make him submit a new report, that he is comfortable with the report that he has submitted and if , it is, that he has to withdraw that report, prepare the same information in the report and submit it all over again, that is exactly what he will do and he will create a crisis,” Wickham said on a discussion on News-Talk Radio Guyana 103.1 FM/ Demerara Waves Online News shortly after the CCJ’s decision.      Continue reading

.

In a corner of South America along the Caribbean coast, a country is plunged into crisis. Rival camps see themselves as the rightful rulers of the nation and their opponents as would-be usurpers. Officials in regional organizations and foreign governments want those in power to step down and pave the way for a transition. And beneath it all lies the promise — and potential curse — of the country’s considerable and largely untapped oil reserves.        Continue reading

Today, we talk about traveling. Before all of this happened, chances are we used Airbnb to find a place to stay, and we discovered that some of those options were great and others, well, not so much. But, regardless of personal experiences, one thing is certain. Airbnb revolutionized how we traveled. The past years, however, have brought criticism and backlash, from local and national governments alike. This latest crisis has only aided in putting the company to the test. Layoffs, controversial refunds, and a shaky IPO, Airbnb is going through turbulent times. Will it come out on top?

Let’s review in this episode of Company Forensics.

INTERVIEW: CRICKET: Sonny Ramadhin: ‘In 1950 we had the three W’s – England had Len Hutton’

Last survivor of West Indies’ first Test win in England 70 years ago recalls a heady day at Lord’s, a tough childhood in Trinidad and his love of English pitches

As England’s last wicket fell at Lord’s in June 1950, a handful of West Indies fans spilled over the boundary rope, keen to celebrate their first Test victory at the home of their cricket-inventing colonisers.

At his home in Delph on the edge of Saddleworth Moor, Sonny Ramadhin, the last living player from that history-making West Indies side, remembers the scenes. “Quite a few of the West Indians came on to the ground and we had to run to the dressing room,” the 91-year-old says.      Continue reading

TRAVEL: St Vincent-based airline One Caribbean could start regional flights soon

One Caribbean Airline Saab 30 seater

July 7, 2020 (CMC) Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves of St. Vincent says the Kingstown-based One Caribbean airline could begin regional flights as soon as next Sunday as part of its efforts to fill the void left by cash-trapped regional carrier LIAT.

The major shareholder governments of LIAT have, with the exception of Antigua and Barbuda, agreed to place the airline into liquidation. St John’s has criticised the move and instead is urging support for the idea of a new company, LIAT 2020, to take over the operations of LIAT (1974) Limited, whose other major shareholder governments are Barbados, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Dominica.        Continue reading

US Politics: Pulling Down Statues? It Dates Back to U.S. Independence – By ANDREW LAWLER

Enthusiasm for the American Revolution led colonists to burn, disfigure, and deface any symbol of Britain and its hated king.

ANDREW LAWLER | National Geographic

Fireworks, Bands, and Cookouts are essential ingredients of any Fourth of July celebration.

What is usually NOT on the menu is toppling statues, ripping down signs, or burning portraits.
