By

The COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the construction of the Maraiko Bay luxury housing development project, according to principals of Construction and Investment Management Group (CIMGRO) Ragindra Persaud and Sudama Ramalingum.

Speaking to Stabroek News, both Persaud and Ramalingum explained that with some overseas borders being closed and travel bans in place, the engineering, architectural and other technical teams have been unable to be on site.  This, they pointed out, has contributed to the slowing down of works at the site.      Continue reading

Guyana History: Fogarty’s Clerk 83 at 83 – by Francis Quamina Farrier

In more recent times, I have been approached by younger citizens seeking information about some matter or happening of the past. While there are books with some of Guyana’s history, there is certainly not enough.

For example, while there is a comprehensive book on the history of Theatre in Guyana by Frank Thomasson, it does not mention that at Guyana National Drama Festivals and the Sugar Estates Drama Festivals of the past, never had adjudicators who were involved with any of the groups which they had to adjudicate.        Continue reading

Guyanese Patriots with a Passion for Progress — by Francis Quamina Farrier

— by Francis Quamina Farrier

While there are those Guyanese who say openly that they have given up on the country of their birth, there are those who not only “Talk the talk” but certainly “Walk the Walk” in a very positive way. So when last have you walked along the Main Street Avenue in downtown Georgetown and observed the renaissance taking place? There are citizens who are working diligently to make it more and more as pleasant a walk as possible for citizens and tourists as well.

One such citizen is businessman Stanley Ming. “The avenue along Main Street between Middle and New Market Streets, west of the President’s official residence, has become a very popular venue for photography during the year-round celebrations of weddings, anniversaries and special occasions.” noted Stanley Ming, the General Manager of Mings Products and Services Limited.        Continue reading

LIFESTYLE: Why Finland And Denmark Are Happier Than The U.S. – Video

CNBC – 2,737,599 views – Jan 9, 2020

What does it take to be happy? The Nordic countries seem to have it all figured out. Finland and Denmark have consistently topped the United Nations’ most prestigious index, The World Happiness Report, in all six areas of life satisfaction: income, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, trust and generosity.

Each year, a group of happiness experts from around the globe rank 156 countries based on how “happy” citizens are, and they publish their findings in the World Happiness Report. Happiness might seem like an elusive concept to quantify, but there is a science to it.     Continue reading

GUYANA: Places and Things Waiting for an appropriate name – By Francis Quamina Farrier

– By Francis Quamina Farrier

There are quite a number of places and things, many public property here in Guyana, which are waiting to be given a proper name or a change of name. Way back in colonial British Guiana, for example, a small portion of the Potaro river downstream from the Kaieteur Falls, was christened “Garraway stream.” It was so named to the honour of the popular Berbice-born cricketer of the day, Patrick Garraway. At that point of the Potaro where the river is sort of flowing serenely after tumbling 741 feet over the Kaieteur’s lip, there is a bridge over peaceful waters.      Continue reading

Commentary: From Buxton to Buxton — by Francis Quamina Farrier

— by Francis Quamina Farrier

Eusi Kwayana now 95. The Sage of Buxton, Guyana.

There is the village of Buxton on the East Coast Demerara, Region 4, Guyana.  There is the city of Buxton which is located in Derbyshire in the East Midlands region of England. I know both Buxtons having been to both – one on many occasions, the other just once.

That English Buxton at 960 feet elevation, is the highest above sea level of any town in England. Its population is 23,000.

Though not as large, or as populated as its English counterpart, the Guyana Buxton is one of the lowest villages in Guyana being almost about seven feet below sea level at high tide. At this time (2020) its population is approaching 6,000.        Continue reading
