Guyana Politics: US urges peaceful reaction to CCJ rulings on no-confidence vote

Guyana: US Ambassador Sara Ann Lynch

New US ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch, has urged Guyana to have a “peaceful” reaction to the impending ruling at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on the no-confidence vote which triggered early elections.

In her first interview with the country’s newspapers, Lynch declined to speculate on the likely outcome.

One thing is clear…the US embassy stands steadfast…firm in respect for democratic institutions, and democratic processes, she stressed.            Continue reading

GOLF: Tiger Woods says he is ready to win his fifth Masters — HE WINS – UPDATED

  •  Former world No 1: ‘I feel like I can win here’
  •  American was close in last two majors of 2018

Tiger Woods

Eleven years separate Tiger Woods and a major triumph. Fourteen have elapsed since he last prevailed at the Masters. As he prepares for a 22nd appearance at Augusta National, Woods cited a relatively trivial gap of 139 miles as the most significant. That distance separates the venue for the year’s first major and East Lake, where Woods returned to winning ways last September. Since 2014, a series of back surgeries had raised doubts over the 14-times major champion’s future in the game.

“I feel like I can win,” said Woods, 43. “I’ve proven that I can do it. I put myself there with a chance to win the last two major championships of the year last year. I was right there and just needed to have a couple more things to go my way and not throw away a couple shots here and there, which I was able to do at East Lake.

Is Lincoln Lewis the Black version of White fascism? -By Freddie Kissoon

Freddie Kissoon | Features / Columnists Kaieteur News

I read Lincoln Lewis column in last Sunday’s Kaieteur News and the first question that flashed through my mind was if I was the editor for that day, would I have carried that piece? I probably would not.

As I kept reading this commentary all I could have thought of was how easy it is to fall prey to the virus of misplaced nationalism. Lewis’s presentation is directly out of the songbook of white fascism that is sweeping Europe and the USA. When you read Lewis, you wonder if he was in fact plagiarizing the words of the Trump, the Brexit advocates in the UK and those who presently rule Italy, Hungary and other countries that are implementing fascist xenophobia.          

Lincoln Lewis has been a friend for more than forty years. I didn’t expect that state of mind from him. I would never have thought that Lincoln could use the kind of canvas he painted to describe foreigners coming to Guyana to live and work.        Continue reading

GUYANA SPEAKS: A Historical Glance at the British in Guiana – London UK – April 28, 2019

 
On 15th March 2019, The Lord Provost of Aberdeen, Barney Crockett, signed a twinning agreement between the cities of Aberdeen in Scotland and Georgetown in Guyana. The forging of links between the two territories will no doubt help to deepen and expand the on-going work between Aberdeen University, Edinburgh Heriot-Watt University and the University of Guyana to establish an oil and gas faculty in the country. This twinning may appear on the surface to be an unique one, yet we need only reflect on Guyanese surnames like Fraser or MacPherson, buildings like St Andrew’s Kirk, or place names like Rosehall, Inverness or Fyrish to be reminded of Scotland’s historically inextricable relationship with Guyana. In reflecting on this Guyana SPEAKS have decided to host “A historical glance at the British in Guiana” and invite the following distinguished guests to speak on their specialist knowledge in the field: the historians, Dr Randy Browne and Dr David Alston, and the well known BG-born journalist, author and editor, Mr John Mair.
