Guyana has 3rd highest crude oil reserves in Latin America-Caribbean region – By OilNOW

By OilNOW – October 6, 2021
OilNOW is an online-based Information and Resource Centre
New oil producer Guyana has been rapidly adding barrels to its discovered resources since 2015 catapulting the country to the number three position for proven oil reserves in the Latin America-Caribbean region.

Crude oil reserves in Venezuela amounted to nearly 304 billion barrels in 2021. In addition to being the undisputed leader in Latin America, the country also boasted the largest crude oil reserves worldwide. Brazil followed in the region, although by a large margin, with 12.7 billion barrels.

Since its first world-class discovery in Guyana in 2015, ExxonMobil has made over 22 discoveries amounting to approximately 9 billion barrels of oil equivalent resources, placing Guyana at the number three position in Latin America and the Caribbean.      Continue reading

GUYANA: Indigenous Artist and Regional Development Officer – Anil Roberts – is a ‘Special Person’

 Sep 19, 2021 Kaieteur News – By Rehanyna Ramsa

Anil Roberts

Championing the cause of Guyana’s first peoples…

“To experience the culture there [in the Rupununi] and the position I am in today at the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs, which is to be able to help my fellow Amerindian brothers and sisters within the villages on governance, project development, and support is what I view as great.”

At any successful entity or corporation, it is common knowledge that hiring the right people for the job produces better results for achieving the desired end.

For this week’s ‘Special Person,’ this certainly proves true. As someone who is always championing the cause of the indigenous peoples as an artist and Principal Regional Development Officer (PRDO) attached to the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs, Anil Roberts is constantly striving towards preserving and advocating for their rights, culture and heritage.

GUYANA: Time for Venezuela to stop bullying little Guyana over 180-year-old border dispute– By Mohamed Hamaludin


Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro and opposition forces got together in August to work out an accord which would hopefully ease international sanctions in a country with the largest oil reserves and one of the worst economic slumps.

The meeting took place in Norway – the second in two years–and participants managed to unite on one issue which had nothing to do with sanctions: a 180-year-old claim to “the historic and inalienable rights of Venezuela over the territory of Essequibo.”

That territory is two-thirds of Guyana, whose government said it “firmly rejects the agreement [as] an overt threat to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Guyana,” adding, “Guyana cannot be used as an altar of sacrifice for settlement of Venezuela’s internal political differences.” The opposition APNU+AFC Coalition affirmed the country’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity.”  The government and the opposition noted the issue is before the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the latest stage of a dispute which began in 1841 involving two wholly unequal neighbors.      Continue reading

CRICKET: Sharpened Knives Now Drawn And Pointed At West Indies’ Selections Panel

By Reds Perreira and Tony McWatt  September 20, 2021

(This column was originally published in the Stabroek News newspaper)

“Knives for Roger Harper and his hallucinating band of selectors, aren’t yet drawn. But surely, they are being sharpened!”

Those were the words of the seasoned Jamaican cricket journalist Ray Ford, in reaction to the storm of controversy that has been created as a result of the choices made by Selections’ Chair Roger Harper and his Panel for the West Indies official squad of 15 plus four reserves to participate in the forthcoming ICC 2021 T20 World Cup. The 2021 ICC T20 World Cup will be held in the UAE from October 17 – November 13.        Continue reading

GUYANA: Biblical Reference: “Mark Of The Beast” Linked To COVID-19 Vaccines – By Mosa Telford

Some people have been linking the biblical references about a mark of the beast to COVID-19 vaccines. In this era where facts and misinformation are amalgamated, it can be difficult to differentiate truth from untruth? But do truth and untruth remain unchanged? Or do they change depending on the time and the people?

Global connectivity through the worldwide web has exposed us to a wealth of information. But we are constantly bombarded by the noise of the world and we must filter what we take in, for while information can enlighten us, it can also influence irresponsible behaviour and decisions.        Continue reading

Covid-19 – the political virus – EDITORIAL By Stabroek News

Stabroek News


Covid-19, the little virus from Wuhan, China has arguably had more of an impact on the modern world than World Wars I and II, the Great Depression and 9/11. It has resulted in the deaths of at a very minimum 4 million people and has brought political and economic systems to breaking point.

Diseases tend to do that: The Black Death, a bubonic plague, which swept through Eurasia between 1346 and 1353 killed an estimated 45% to 50% of the population. It scythed down so many rural labourers in England it caused severe labour and crop shortages. Tensions between landowners and the newly powerful workers (due to their scarcity) would eventually result in the Peasants Revolt of 1381 and the decline of the feudal system.          Continue reading

U.S.A — COVID deniers, anti-vaxers and mask rebels hurt not only themselves — Opinion


They were not quite “bonfires of the vanities,” to borrow from the title of Tom Wolfe’s 1987 satirical novel. They were more like bonfires of the stupid – not the ignorant, just stupid.

Worldwide, four million people have died from the COVID-19 disease caused by the coronavirus and 196 million are infected. In the United States, 627,350 have died and 35.3 million are infected. In Florida, 38,700 have died and 2.5 million are infected – the third highest after California and Texas. In Miami-Dade County, 6,372 have died and 525,000 are infected. In Broward, 3,079 have died and 259,000 are infected. In Palm Beach, 2883 have died and 157,000 are infected.        Continue reading
