SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 | BY  |

After months of complaints, the light at the end of the tunnel seems to be getting brighter for Guyanese air travel passengers who have been grappling with alarmingly high fares.

TravelSpan Incorporated is set to begin direct flights between New York and Guyana starting December 14th, officials of the company confirmed Wednesday evening, hours after meeting with Transport Minister, Robeson Benn, and Tourism Minister, Irfaan Ali.  TravelSpan also plans to introduce a scheduled service before the first half of next year.

This latest development in the aviation sector would spell positive news for Guyanese who have been faced with high air fares reaching almost US$1,600 per return trip from the US, using the lone carrier, Caribbean Airlines (CAL).     Continue reading

That Rodney Inquiry – commentary

That Rodney Inquiry

SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 | BY  | FILED UNDER EDITORIAL

Mr. Eusi Kwayana informed this newspaper  (see letter below), and the Guyanese people, via its letter pages that he was contacted on whether he would be willing to offer testimony on an Inquiry into the killing of Dr Walter Rodney on June 13, 1980.

Skuse was later disgraced in the UK for several flawed “findings”.  Continue reading

Body language – differences in men and women

Excerpt: Book by Allan and Barbara Pease – The Definitive Book of Body Language

“When we say someone is ‘perceptive’ or ‘intuitive’ about people, we are unknowingly referring to their ability to read another person’s body language and to compare these cues with verbal signals. In other words, when we say that we have a ‘hunch’ or ‘gut feeling’ that someone has told us a lie, we usually mean that their body language and their spoken words don’t agree. This is also what speakers call ‘audience awareness,’ or relating to a group. For example, if an audience were sitting back in their seats with their chins down and arms crossed on their chest, a ‘perceptive’ speaker would get a hunch or feeling that his delivery was not going across well. …

“Being ‘perceptive’ means being able to spot the contradictions between someone’s words and their body language.         Continue reading
