GUYANA: The Sweet Drink Wars Prestige Competitions: Tie-ins – By Vibert Cambridge

September 12, 2021 – By

Tie-in marketing is an approach in which a company purposefully creates an association between the company, its products or services, and whatever is trending or hot in the collective consciousness at that moment. Since 1956, the hot beverage in British Guiana has been Banks Beer. In 1955, under the slogan “people’s capitalism,” Peter D’Aguiar launched the public company Banks Breweries Ltd, the first brewery in British Guiana. It made good sense as an import substitution. Beer and other malted beverages had previously been imported. Substantial amounts of beer, ale, and stout were consumed in the hot and humid colony.

The term “people’s capitalism,” although seemingly oxymoronic, was brilliant in the context of the political jargon of the time. Share price was BG$1. This allowed working-class people to invest in the company.        Continue reading

Commentary: I am a Toronto Sports fan! – By Geoff Burrowes

 By: Geoff Burrowes

     This is a warning – if you’re not a sports fan don’t waste your valuable time reading this! You probably won’t understand what I’m talking about anyway!

This story, starts for me, not on the immaculate pitch at Boarda or at Exhibition Stadium, the Dome or BMO Field, but on a hot sticky afternoon, at Kennington Oval, across the Thames from Parliament Buildings in London, when I was privileged to be part of a delirious West Indies crowd watching Frank Worrell’s exciting Calypso cricketers demolish the England bowling attack. I remember Sir Gary Sobers, Joe Soloman, Basil Butcher and Rohan Kanhai shining, hitting fours and sixes with abandon that afternoon, after a disastrous start. Here were our men (our heroes), carving up the vaunted England bowling attack. Now what does this have to do with being a Toronto sports fan?          Continue reading

Downtown Toronto

REPORT ON DOWNTOWN TORONTO FEATURED HERE… from BlogTO

The vast majority of Toronto office employees are still working from home, according to a cool (albeit slightly creepy) new index that tracks daily foot traffic near commercial buildings in major North American cities.

Data from global real estate advisory Avison Young’s newly-launched Vitality Index indicates that the number of people actually going into offices across Toronto every day is still 86 per cent lower on average than it was the week before the first major pandemic lockdown.      Continue reading

TRAVEL: Caribbean tourism recovery punctured by new coronavirus spike

.
Just as tourism was beginning to show signs of recovery, the Caribbean has been hit by a new wave of coronavirus infections that is causing lockdowns and flight cancellations and overwhelming hospitals.

Countries including Jamaica, Martinique, The Bahamas, Barbados, St. Lucia, and Dominica have seen a rise in cases fueled by the highly contagious Delta variant and a relaxation of earlier restrictions. Misinformation spread on social media has also contributed to a low vaccine uptake.        Continue reading
