Is respect for women in Guyana rationed like a privilege? – Eusi Kwayana

Letter: Is respect for women in Guyana rationed like a privilege? – Eusi Kwayana

Dear Editor.

An online version if a newspaper published a report of the suspension of a magistrate by the Judicial Service Commission on the ground of alleged misconduct during the hearing of a case. One daily newspaper had published my comment on the disclosures of the country’s Attorney General in a conversation intended for his friend  but trespassing on the public interest , My letter spoke in particular on what he revealed about the dangers  women  face in the workplace  from money and power.

Today’s report opens up another danger, It supports my suspicion that for some strange reason respect for women in their own right in Guyana is rationed like a privilege.  Continue reading

The various agencies linked to local air travel are unhappy that Khamraj Lall, the Guyanese pilot found with over US$600,000 stashed in his jet, would have been involved in alleged unlawful actions. This is so, Minister of Public Works Robeson Benn told reporters yesterday, because Lall was the first to offer what he thought was a vital service within the aviation sector; that is a Guyanese national providing high-end executive flights, and on-demand medivac services.  Continue reading

Amazon Unveils its Eighth Generation Fulfillment Center [via BusinessWire]

When you hit the “buy” button on that Amazon Cyber Monday deal, it could be a robot that pulls it out of the warehouse. Amazon released a video Sunday that shows its 15,000 Kiva robots at work, and it’s pretty neat to see how the whole system comes together.

Amazon fulfills orders out of huge warehouses located all over the U.S. At most of the warehouses, it’s up to the company’s human employees to walk up and down the aisles and grab the items to be boxed up. Continue reading

Guyana still in very corrupt category of Transparency International Index

While its ranking moved slightly in a positive direction, Guyana is still listed in the very corrupt category in the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index.
In the 2014 results released this morning, Guyana remains far behind its Caricom peers placing 124th out of 175 countries. The only Caricom country that is doing worse than Guyana is Haiti which placed 161. Guyana and Haiti have traditionally been at the bottom of the rankings.
A country or territory’s score indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). Guyana’s score this year was 30 compared to 27 last year and 28 the year before.
By contrast, Barbados has the highest Caricom ranking with a score of 74 and a rank of 17. The Bahamas is ranked at 24 with a score of 71, St Vincent and the Grenadines has a rank of 29 and a score of 67, Dominica is ranked at 39 with a score of 58. Continue reading

Shirley Chisholm in 1972

By Murphy Browne

Shirley Anita St Hill was born on November 30, 1924, in Brooklyn, New York. Her parents Charles St Hill and Ruby Seale St Hill were immigrants from British Guiana (father) and Barbados (mother.) The St Hill family struggled financially even with both parents working, which eventually prompted Charles and Ruby to send their three little girls to live in the Caribbean.

In 1927, the St Hill children were sent to Barbados to live with their maternal grandmother Emaline Seale and returned to live with their parents in Brooklyn seven years later. On their return to Brooklyn in 1934, the St Hill children — now four, since there was an addition to the family while the three older girls were living in Barbados — were academically ahead of their classmates as a result of the education they received in Barbados.
