Story: The Ol’ Higue on Market Street – By Kevin Garbaran

Kevin Garbaran

Andre Haynes July 14, 2019 – Stabroek News — Writer’s Room

The author – Kevin Garbaran – is from Zorg village, Essequibo. Guyana. South America.

“Jumbie is not real” is what nine year old Devika had come to believe after her teacher interjected the idea into a conversation she was having with two of her friends during lunch break. Ms. Beverly explained that those were only stories and folktales from a time long ago, meant to frighten lil children. Devika clung to this notion, partially because she had never seen a Jumbie in real life, but mostly because the thought of any Jumbie being real terrified her.              Continue reading

BOOK: A Proud Product of Guyana’s Bitter-Sweet Sugar – by Nowrang Persaud (Author)

A Proud Product of Guyana’s Bitter-Sweet Sugar  – by Nowrang Persaud (Author)Paperback – July 27, 2018 

  • A Review of Nowrang Persaud’s autobiography “A Proud Product of Guyana’s Bitter-Sweet Sugar” by Harry Hergash
  • ORDER FROM AMAZON < click here

Nowrang Persaud was born in 1937 at Number 47 Village, Corentyne Berbice, Guyana (then British Guiana). A year earlier, an eighteen year-old named Cheddi Jagan, from a nearby sugar plantation, left the colony to pursue studies in dentistry in the United States of America (USA). By the time Jagan returned to Guyana in late 1943, Nowrang and his siblings were living with their mother, step-father, and several step siblings in a one-bedroom logie at Blairmont Estate.

About living in a logie, Nowrang writes “In common with all other sugar estates, living conditions in the Blairmont Estate in which I grew up as a boy were dangerously unhealthy, unkempt and atrocious.        Continue reading

To those people who are still in denial that humanity faces a climate crisis that would most likely lead to the extinction of our species, not to mention most other species, I say, wake up to reality. We cannot afford to wait until reality strikes you in the groin or chest for us to take evasive action as a united nation.    Continue reading

Guyana: Oil and Gas: We Must Use Oil to Help the People– Says Dr. Mangal

OIL and GAS – featuring Dr Jan Mangal – Commentary By Dr Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Jan Mangal

First Oil will find a Guyana that is divided right down the middle. After 53 years of independence, and various governments, the country is no closer to unity as many would like.

The mere mention of the words ‘general elections’ is good enough to harden attitudes and to send the racial groups into their respective camps to widen the divisions. Guyana is a country in which racism continues to cast its pernicious shadow over the body politic and no amount of sweet-talk from the politicians can paper over the deep divide.

China will determine the future of Venezuela – Opinion

On January 23, when US-backed opposition leaderJuan Guaido declared himself interim president of Venezuela, he thought deposing President Nicolas Maduro from power would be easy.

He had a simple, three-thronged plan: declare Maduro’s presidency illegitimate by exposing the irregularities in the election that brought him to power, establish a transition government, and hold new elections that would bring the opposition to power.

Caribbean governments should tax cruise sectors more than air passengers – Commentary

July 8, 2019 – By Robert MacLellan – Caribbean News Now

Caribbean taxes on cruise passengers vary widely….

Can tourism dependent Caribbean governments learn something from oil producing countries? When relatively small and poor oil-producing governments sought to get a fair price for oil, their main source of national revenue, they banded together to negotiate more effectively with the multi-national oil companies and the larger developed nations, which were the major consumers of their oil….. thus OPEC was formed.          Continue reading

Cricket: England beat New Zealand to win their first Cricket World Cup – video report

Cricket: World Cup 2019: England beat New Zealand

This was the most astonishing, fortuitous, preposterous climax to any cricket match I’ve witnessed, let alone a World Cup final. Only the Kiwis could have coped so graciously with the manner of their defeat in the most riveting final this tournament has ever witnessed. At the end of it England emerged as World Cup winners for the first time. It is hard to believe how they managed it. We had better start at the end.                Continue reading

USA: ‘Life-threatening’ Tropical Storm Barry grinds toward New Orleans Louisiana

NEW ORLEANS,  (Reuters) – City officials warned New Orleans residents yesterday to secure their homes, stock up on supplies and prepare to huddle indoors with Tropical Storm Barry poised to make landfall as the first Atlantic hurricane of 2019.

Barry’s maximum sustained winds were clocked at 65 miles per hour (100 kph) as it churned through the northern Gulf of Mexico toward Louisiana. Meteorologists warned that torrential rains – as much as 2 feet (60 cm) in some places – are likely to unleash severe flooding.      Continue reading

Guyana: The death of Nurse Apple—Did danger lurk where nurses work? – by Yvonne Sam

Letter by Yvonne Sam

Nurses are the heart of healthcare, present when the first and last breath is taken

Permit me in the first instance to extend sincere condolences to the grieving family and colleagues of slain nurse Schenise Apple.  While the circumstances surrounding the death of the healthcare employee is enigmatic to say the least, the ensuing behavior / actions of the Health Minister only serves to create further doubts.  Plainly stated, there is gross absence of the normal and huge presence of the abnormal.

Schenise Apple

According to newspaper report regarding information coming from the Ministry, when the nurse was found dead Dr. Chissundra Abdool, the Regional Health Officer for Region Eight contacted the police, who then launched an investigation. If she was discovered dead, who made the discovery? She was seen hanging in her room?  Who certified death?  How was the Health Officer made aware of the situation? Who undertook to cut the body down?    Continue reading

USA: Immigrant communities paralyzed by fear of impending ICE raids

Mayors in major cities have pledged to support those targeted by Sunday’s ‘enforcement operations’ by the Depart of Homeland Security: ICE Agency

“Bananas, milk and bread,” CG lists off, remembering what she told him, “Because who knows when we’ll leave the house.”

Those raids were later postponed in June. But now they are back and scheduled to begin on Sunday and CG, who is undocumented and asked to be identified by her initials out of a fear of the authorities, is afraid again.
