Video: The Science Behind Gold +The Richest Man In History – Mansa Musa of Mali (1280-1337)

The Richest Man In History – Mansa Musa of Mali ($400 Billion) + The Science Behind GOLD

Just about every culture, race and religion acknowledges the value of gold. Humans have been infatuated with gold for as long as we have recorded history. Millions have died for it, entire civilizations were build upon it and even many cryptocurrencies are backed by it.

Gold was the driving force in the European conquest of the Americas in search of places like El Dorado, a city entirely made of Gold. And we can’t forget the mass migration to the western United States in the Gold Rush of 1849. Even the gods wanted gold. According to the Sumerian tablets, the oldest written record we have, gold was the entire reason for creating mankind.  Continue reading

Flora E. Kippins Foundation: Giving back …to help hurricane victims


Miss Marilyn Kippins

Guyana-born Miss Marilyn Kippins, founder and president, of the Albany-based, Flora E. Kippins Foundation, Inc., like millions of other citizens across the world who watched in horror as Hurricane Dorian ravished the archipelago — Grand Bahama, and Abaco islands, said she had to find a way to help citizens recover from the devastation they experienced on Sept. 1.

As such, Miss. Kippins packed her truck with over 100 pounds of food and drove from Albany, New York, to be donated to the Bahamas relief efforts that began in Brooklyn three weeks ago.

The Guyanese-American, said she was saddened at the tragedy, but not sure, how she could give to the Bahamas, until she read an article in this publication, that had featured the relief efforts organized by the CARICOM Consular Corps.            Continue reading

Venezuela: Russia and hemispheric geopolitics – Stabroek News Editorial

Stabroek News – October 13, 2019

A number of news organisations, including the BBC, have produced pieces on Russia’s growing global reach, and President Vladimir Putin’s apparent mission to re-establish his country’s influence in world affairs and engineer a return to spheres of influence. He has been aided by the carelessness, lack of judgement and sometimes arrogance of the West, which made it possible for him to make Moscow a player in the Middle East, take the Crimea and bring eastern Ukraine under its ambit.

But all of this, while of interest to Guyanese on account of the small world we live in, is not of immediate moment. In contrast, Russia’s actions across our border are. Once again, with Washington taking the lead, the West made a strategic miscalculation in de-recognising Nicolás Maduro as Head of State and Government in Venezuela, and according interim presidential status to Juan Guaidó.              Continue reading

Black Male Teachers and the dearth of Diversity in Classrooms – By Yvonne Sam

By Yvonne Sam

       Is the scarcity of diversity a problem for teachers or students?

Very often young people are asked what they want to be once they grow up. Despite the varying responses, the fact nevertheless remains that it is somewhat difficult for young people to visualize themselves in a career or professional field when they fail to see someone who looks like them in that field.

Point in question is that young girls may say that they want to be a teacher because the majority of their teachers are female.  On the other hand young boys, especially Black boys, may struggle to see themselves as teachers.      Continue reading

Going strong since pre-independence Guyana and famed for its cuisine, Shanta’s Puri Shop is facing its sternest test yet as the battle between two brothers for the building and their mother’s legacy has moved from the courts to the streets.

Established in 1936, originally as Betty’s Café and renamed Shanta’s around 1958, the storied restaurant has seen countless Guyanese and even celebrities – most recently Indian cricketer Virat Kohli – visiting to have a bite.    Continue reading

A NEW AWARD – THE STALWARTS – By Dave Martins + video

Now and then, in the day-to-day, you will find yourself engrossed in something when an idea for something quite different comes to your mind like a light turning on.  Just this week, for example, I found myself caught up watching an absorbing online post from Maya Trotz of a speech by Brian Meeks in which he dealt with the intricacies of the Grenada Revolution in the time of Maurice Bishop.

For those who may not be familiar with his work, BrianMeeks is a Caribbean poet and academic from Jamaica.  He is Professor of Africana Studies and Chair of the Africana Studies/Rites and Reason Theatre Department at Brown University, and while I was aware of his reputation this was the first time I heard him speak, and I was entranced.    Continue reading
