Criteria…

first_img…for GECOM’s chairTo choose a new Dalai Lama for Tibetian Buddhists, Grand Lamas scour the land interviewing young boys to discern who might be the last Dalai Lama’s reincarnation. Now you know this can’t be easy…and it takes years. But at least they have some criteria – including which direction the smoke blew when the last Dalai Lama was cremated! You won’t be surprised, dear reader, to discover the process takes years.Well, it’d appear we’re in a similar process of reading smoke signals to select the next chair of GECOM. After the PNC’d gamed the electoral system for two decades by having a Judge as the Elections Chair, President Carter, as the referee, had brokered a deal between the PPP and PNC to add “or any other fit and proper person” to being a Judge to select the Chair. Everything was hunky dory for another two decades until now.Prezzie, who though “sober as a judge” but NOT a judge, had been nominated once by the PNC’s Hoyte, suddenly decided he only wanted judges to be proposed by the Opposition. Some unkindly persons suggested he wanted to return to the days when the PNC routinely rigged election with a Judge guarding the “sanctity of ballots”. But your Eyewitness didn’t think Prezzie would do that, would he?Anyhow, after a painful period of the lawyers on both sides hurling explications and hermeneutical exegeses of esoteric words like “or”, “other” and “fit” (“persons” seemed to be uncontested!) Prezzie decided to issue the criteria for the GECOM Chair. Some naïve (or battle weary) souls breathed a sigh of relief – but not your (jaded) Eyewitness. And he’s now vindicated.Since the person proffered by the Opposition must be “not unacceptable to the President”, Prezzie appeared reasonable to at least signal “where he was coming from”. But he stated, “The individual must not be an activist of any form (gender, racial, religious, etc); that the person must have no political affiliation; and that the person should have the general characteristics of honesty, integrity, faithfulness, and diligence.”Whew!! And here your Eyewitness though finding a Dalai Lama was tough!! “No activist of any stripe need apply!” Would a person like Prezzie who’s taken a firm stance for Reparations, justice for African Guyanese and their culture, etc, be rejected as an “African activist”? “NO political affiliation”? Does such a political unicorn exist in divided Guyana? Forget “honesty, integrity, and diligence”…how the heck does one ensure “faithfulness”??But what the heck. Didn’t Caesar divorce his wife – not because she was unfaithful – but that even an accusation could be made against her?In Guyana, GECOM’s Chair must be purer than Caesar’s wife.…for firing Town ClerkWhat’s going on here? Bulkan can beat up on Linden Town Clerk Jonellor Bowen by revoking her appointment – but not Royston King? Between Bowen and King, who’s been more “disruptive” and “disrespectful”? King was not only dissed the other City Councillors and the Deputy Mayor, but even Bulkan on several occasions. Not to mention the Cabinet on the request to suspend the Parking Meter Contract. All Bowen did was to object to the high-handed attitude of the Linden Mayor…something others have also pointed out.So, we wonder if it’s because Bowen is female? When a male like King makes his point forcefully, he’s showing “leadership” qualities. But when a female does the same, she’s being “disrespectful” and even “hysterical”! But it’s also clear Bowen doesn’t have the godfathers in the PNC like King does when even Bulkan can’t touch him.But Bulkan has revealed why he and the Cabinet have refused to comply with the law and launch the Local Government Commission.They can “do what dey want wid” Local Government!!…for curfewRamjattan quite portentously announced as to how he was mulling bring down the curfew against bars opening, to 12 midnight.Until Harmon bitch-slapped him something silly!! Ouch!! Silly man thought he had authority!!last_img read more

Respect…

first_img…for outcome not negotiatorThe APNU/AFC coalition managed to squeak into office on the 11 per cent votes the AFC brought in from Berbice at the 2015 elections. Many of those voters were weaned away from the PPP because the AFC – in the form of Moses Nagamootoo and Khemraj Ramjattan – promised they’d champion ‘constitutional reform”. Not just ANY old reform – but most specifically reform that would bring the PPP into the Government.In fact, they pointed to the promise in the APNU/AFC Manifesto to change the constitutional rules on the Executive to declare the party with the largest number of votes would secure the presidency. BUT the leader of the party with the second largest number of votes becomes the Prime Minister with augmented powers. This, they insisted, meant power sharing with the PPP.But as soon as they snucked into office, NOT A SQUEAK was heard about this promise. Instead, President Granger announced they now had a multiracial national unity coalition in Guyana! He appointed Moses Nagamootoo as Prime Minister and PROMISED to buttress his powers and most significantly! Yep…the PPP securing not even 5000 votes less than the combined Opposition – was out in the cold. What of the unity promise that had been made to the international community – including President Carter?Well, Prezzie had an answer to that! Nagamootoo – who never got any power – was to lead a “negotiating” team with the PPP. One wasn’t sure what exactly he was going to negotiate in light of the already-announced National Unity! Wouldn’t any new talks be like gilding the lily?? Or conversely, mamaguying the PPP? Well, not surprisingly, the PPP balked. But in the opinion of your Eyewitness, they fell for Prezzie’s rather transparent ploy when they rejected Nagamootoo rather than the premise of the “negotiations”.Prezzie obviously knew about the bad blood between Nagamootoo and the PPP and was just pressing their buttons by selecting their bête noir. So, now it’s the PPP who’re seen as holding up “unity talks”, since Nagamootoo has once again insisted he’s not stepping down now that there are new calls for constitutional reform and power sharing. From where this Eyewitness stands, the PNC – forget about all the window dressing in APNU – isn’t interested in sharing power with the PPP.But the PPP has to change tack on linking Nagamootoo with power sharing. They should place the PNC on the back foot by announcing – as Jagan did in 1977 and 1985 – their proposals for taking the country forward.The international community has their desire for the political logjam to be broken. The PPP can offer them one way out. Win-win, no?…for real moneyWhen your Eyewitness reads about these fellas getting into trouble with matters related to the gold business, he can’t help being impressed with the numbers thrown around. Imagine a “small dealer” running a scam involving almost a BILLION dollars!! Man…that’s US$5 million!! And Guyana’s a country where a government worker earns just US$300 a month.Right there, you have a recipe for corruption. Just as with drug smugglers in Miami driving around with a trunkful of cash in case they’re stopped by cops, these fellas in gold dealing can do that – and then some! Without the risk of being decapitated by some irate Colombian looking for their stake! So we face the existential and omnipresent risk of our Bureaucrats – including our Ministers – being bought out.So “what is to be done?” – as Lenin would’ve asked in another context. For starters, the Government should have a more nuanced understanding of “access maintenance and access control”.Maybe Professor Thomas can advise Prezzie. The concept is Marxist!…for MIGsWith our main threat on our densely forested western border, your Eyewitness wonders of what help will be the trucks and excavators the Chinese just delivered to the GDF.Wouldn’t a MIG or two been better?last_img read more

Promises…

first_img…and liesEver since Walter Raleigh went up the Essequibo River in search of “El Dorado”, the city of gold, Guiana was sold as a land full of potential and opportunity. Raleigh, of course, was tossed into the Tower of London (literally) when his promises to Queen Elizabeth (the 1st…not this one!!…she’s not THAT ancient!!) weren’t kept!! But we did make a whole lotta Europeans rich from our Guyana gold sugar crystals, didn’t we??For hundreds and hundreds of years, we certainly did!! African slaves toiled away while they were treated to salutary applications of the ubiquitous whip on their backs to produce that crystal gold. The Portuguese and Indians followed them to add to the wealth of Britain, but even with that, not a few of them lost their heads. So you would think we’d be a bit leery when a fresh set of outsiders appear off our shores with “billowing sails” promising to “develop” our potential, wouldn’t you?After all, fool me once, “shame of you”, and fool me twice “shame on me”!!In our case, maybe we can get away by saying that the first “fooling” was hundreds of years ago, and our “foolers” had germs, guns and steel to our bows and arrows. But what’s our excuse this time, with the oil potential?Well, actually, we can kinda appreciate that Janet Jagan pulled off a master stroke in 1999 when she inveigled Exxon and Shell to take first dibs on the possibility of oil in the deep-water Atlantic off our shores.After all, Hugo Chavez had just been elected President of Venezuela, and was breathing fire and brimstone on our western borders. Janet’s move to allocate 600 blocks – 10 times the legal limit – is being criticised now. But hindsight’s always 20/20, isn’t it?? Who knew then they’d be so many oil geysers under our Atlantic? No one, including the PNC, said anything then. They almost tripped over themselves to congratulate her strategic move.But what was Trotman’s excuse in 2016 when he was changing the Exxon contract from an exploration one to a production one – and oil had already been struck? One newspaper’s blaming Exxon…but what about Trotman??A contract with a moron may be voidable, but didn’t Trotman boast that he was trained at Harvard in negotiating techniques?? They don’t accept morons, do they? So how about grilling him about those terms he offered to those Houston lawyers??But what about the Tullow 1% royalty…when he’d already boasted he’d browbeaten Exxon to DOUBLE their 1% to 2? What strategic interest was Tullow protecting?Trotman said he was INSTRUCTED to offer those terms. Let’s have a clue about who it was?Is he immune from prosecution?…on Kitty MarketThe Kitty Market has been around for quite a while; since 1882, to be exact. And in that time, you can be sure it experienced the good, the bad and the ugly in administration. But which one can possibly beat the PNC Mayoral duo of Patricia Chase Green and her sidekick Royston King?? Their tale is one even a fiction writer wouldn’t dare conjure up? Readers would reflexively say, “Naah!! Even the three stooges couldn’t be so bad!!In Feb 2016, the dyspeptic dup promised to completely rebuild the Kitty Market, and have it ready for the May Jubilee Bash. The 178 stalls were to be air-conditioned, since the design allowed no ventilation. And there was to be an automatic switchover generator; a refrigeration section for fish and meat; a rates and taxes centre; community hall and municipal clinic etc!! All for a mere $240 million – which the MC&CC didn’t have.In May 2016, the date was pushed back to November by Town Clerk Royston King, then the 1st quarter of 2017, then 2018, then 2019.And now? Manyana!!…on sugar tourismWe continue to pile up operating losses in sugar. But the Govt’s now opening the remaining 3 sugar estates to “sugar tourism”.So we’ll now subsidise the industry for the tourists?? But couldn’t for sugar workers?last_img read more

Natasha Profeiro: Mastering the art of unique greeting cards creation

first_imgA few years after moving to the city, she began babysitting and it was then she decided that she needed to be more serious about her education. She sent herself  back to school and later began a career as a Spanish teacher at School of the Nations in Berbice.“Teaching was never something I really wanted to do. I tried many things and it just never fitted. I lost interest very quickly and one day I woke up and came with the idea of making handmade greeting cards. The first thing I did was to buy some cardboard and I used to cut them with a knife on a glass table and I made some cards. My friends and family bought,” she said.After she made the first set of cards, Natasha was encouraged to pursue her newest venture so she made the necessary investments and began her journey. She bought a machine to help her cut and shape cardstock she would use to create her masterpieces.Her work began to speak for itself and from there, it started to spiral to greater heights.“I love Christmas, so at first, I started with just Christmas cards, but then I started to make wedding invitations and all kinds of cards. Everything I made handmade after that. Anything you think I can do, I do. I have always been a crafty person and as a kid, I would always make cards with paper.“Christmas is the only holiday I prepare for and when I started making cards, I didn’t focus on birthdays and anniversaries so I later branched off into those areas.”So, if you are looking for a special kind of card for any occasion, particularly for the holiday season, be sure to ensure that it is from Natasha. She does not disappoint. “When I give someone a card, it is not just a card. It is art. It is unique in such a way that it becomes part of your home. It becomes something that you can put in your home. You can put it on your mantle or you can make it an ornament. My cards are not just something you read and then put away, I make them in such a way that they should be displayed,” says Natasha Profeiro.Natasha ProfeiroNatasha has been making handcrafted greeting cards for a number of years now and has cemented herself as one of the go-to creators in Guyana. If you have had the chance to receive a card made by Natasha, then you know that it ups the card game.Born in Venezuela of Guyanese heritage, Natasha moved to the North-West District in Region One (Barima-Waini) when she was nine. Her grandfather had just passed away and her father had to return to Guyana to take over the family business.Not knowing one word of  English, Natasha’s life was changed when she came to Guyana. She had to overcome the language barrier, but she persisted. At the age of 13, she moved from the North-West District to Georgetown, but because of her difficulty understanding the English language, Natasha did not really pursue schooling.last_img read more

Cricket: a unifying force across the region

first_imgThe Guyana leg of CPL 2019 begins in a matter of days at the Providence Stadium with the first of five home games. Fans, both here and from overseas, will once again savor the opportunities to experience and embrace all that has come to make up CPL.Dubbed the biggest party in sport as cricket is played louder, CPL epitomizes the positive evolution of world cricket and further emphasizes the vibrancy of the game which characterizes the West Indian brand.The natural enthusiasm through the vociferousness of fans in this part of the world evident over the decades, has in many ways influenced the atmosphere in other places notably England. The home of cricket has been known for its more subdued but overwhelming attendance punctuated with a routine courteous appreciation of the art and showmanship of the game.That has now changed as fans have fully gotten into the game bringing liveliness through infectious music and innovative celebrations. This change has been directly credited to T20 cricket which, again, the West Indians would have branded with their own flare of effervescence through a fusion of colour, music and rapturous involvement.As interest in cricket would have waned in the past due to various factors, T20, through the CPL, has not only catapulted that interest, but transgressed the traditional fan base to overwhelmingly capture women and children. Among the many successes of T20 cricket, the ability to continuously and increasingly bring out women and children to the games is one of the biggest achievements.This is what was needed for the sport, especially here in the Caribbean as CPL has now become a much anticipated family event. The names and prowess of the plethora of stars of the various teams easily roll off the tongues of women and children as interest and expectation grow rapidly. One of the many factors driving this within the CPL is the many fan-based promotions by the various sponsors.This has ensured that fans are not only directly involved in the process of creating the pulsating environment for which the tournament has become known for, but allows them opportunities to be the recipient of something tangible aside from the abundance of paraphernalia. This is where CPL has to be commended for making fans a priority in the process of building and sustaining interest.That interest cuts across societal divides as evident in the support for the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The Providence stadium, since the inception of the CPL, has become known as a place sanitised of partisanship as Guyanese rally around their stars. Of course naturally there would have been disappointment over the Warriors not yet claiming the title. However, that has never prevented the overwhelming support local fans have given the team with Guyana probably the highest fan turn out for the tournament!Fans rally when the team seems to be on the ropes and never hold back in their unbridled celebration of the joys of a Warriors’ victory. With a sea of colours from the waving flags of the Warriors and that of the country, accompanied by the blaring rhythmic music often drowned out by the collective deafening screams of fans, the positive influence of the of cricket through the CPL is pellucid. The power of the game to effect the bypassing of differences and for rallying in unison for a common cause is never in doubt.The Providence stadium, which has proven its worth over the years, will once again burst into life as cricket superstars from across the globe battle for supremacy. Guyana will once again be in the international spotlight as millions will join the global live broadcast from the East Bank corridor.The benefits of such international exposure are priceless as are those that redound to the local economy from the hosting of CPL games.With a growing fan base with every passing year, the Warriors are not just the players on the field, but every fan in the Providence stadium and those watching the live broadcast. That has been the impact of the CPL as it continues to break barriers, showcasing cricketing skills and discovering new talent.As Guyanese and tourist converge in large numbers at Providence, the stadium becomes a hub not just for the many analyses by fans of what should or should not be done or who should bat or bowl when, but for the making of yet another step in the process of forging togetherness.Cricket has always been seen as a unifying force across the region. Here at home, CPL and the exciting exploits of the Guyana Amazon Warriors have created a formidable platform for the furtherance of that process.last_img read more

Warriors rally from 15 down at halftime, hold off Blazers for 2-0 lead

first_imgCarpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard The Witcher series prompts over 500,000 reprints of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books Stephen Curry scored 37 points, and the Warriors rallied from a 15-point halftime deficit before holding off Portland on the final possession for a 114-111 win Thursday night and a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.Golden State coach Steve Kerr insisted his team stole this game with a sensational final few minutes and another, familiar third-quarter outburst.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsCounterpart Terry Stotts of the Trail Blazers considered it a “lost opportunity” on the road.CJ McCollum missed a driving jumper with 32 seconds left and Green scored on the other end for the Warriors, giving Portland one final chance with 12.3 seconds to go.

Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption The Warriors already got past James Harden and Chris Paul in the last round — now it’s McCollum and Lillard standing in the way of a fifth straight trip to the NBA Finals.Portland showed it made adjustments from Game 1 and brought it on both ends from the opening tip after the Blazers had regularly left Curry wide open on the perimeter off the pick-and-roll and he scored 36 points while matching his postseason high with nine 3-pointers.“We’ve got to bring that same energy at home,” McCollum said, “understand that this is the first time in 19 years we’ve been in the conference final.”LILLARD AT HOMELillard isn’t ready to ponder this might have been his final game at Oracle Arena, just a short walk from where he grew up in Oakland.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)OAKLAND, California — These Golden State Warriors have long been able to score in fabulous, jaw-dropping flurries. Down by eight to the Portland Trail Blazers at home with 4½ minutes to go, they needed every last burst, perfect pass, driving layup and dunk.“Our experience really paid off for us tonight having a bunch of guys who just won’t quit,” said Draymond Green, who was right smack in the middle of it all.ADVERTISEMENT “They stole it, but they earned it down the stretch,” McCollum said.Seth Curry, Steph’s little brother, scored 16 points and put Portland ahead on a 3-pointer with 1:03 left before Kevon Looney’s dunk on the other end put Golden State back on top at 112-111. Seth tried to “distract” his brother at the free throw line late, or so the story went from Steph, who called Seth a “pest” on defense.“This was like the coolest experience I think I’ve ever had playing against him. You talk about the stage, he was amazing tonight,” Stephen Curry said. “For my parents, I know we’ve talked about it the whole series, these last two games it’s probably nerve-wracking as heck for them. It worked out perfectly tonight. He played well and we won.”Stephen Curry shot 11 for 22 and made all 11 of his free throws — three with 2:01 left — to post his third straight 30-point performance while Splash Brother Klay Thompson needed a half to heat up, scoring 13 of his 24 points in the Warriors’ 39-point third period. It was reminiscent of those old third-quarter runs that have defined this group.McCollum scored 22 points for Portland and Lillard overcame a slow start to add 23 points and 10 assists as the Blazers looked far more in sync than in a 116-94 defeat two days earlier.ADVERTISEMENT Eduard Folayang gets new opponent for ONE Manila card Game 3 in the best-of-seven series is Saturday night at Portland.“We did play a much better game at both ends of the floor tonight. We’ve got to take that into Game 3,” Stotts said. “It is a lost opportunity, no question. We had a chance to get one here on the road.”Green made a pretty bounce pass through the paint to a cutting Iguodala for a dunk with 3:06 left to make it 108-105, then Green assisted on a layup by Looney the next possession.“Draymond’s been special all playoffs,” Thompson said. “… When he goes, we go. He was tremendous tonight.”Green had 16 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and five blocked shots playing with foul trouble. His seven straight playoff games with at least 10 rebounds are a career high.“We’ve been here before,” Green said. “When you’re on a run like we’re currently in, you’ve seen everything. Down eight points with what, four minutes to go, or whatever it was, just got to keep going, because we know we can erase eight points.”The Warriors missed Kevin Durant for a third straight game because of a strained right calf and he isn’t likely to return at all this round.Curry scored Golden State’s first eight points of the third to get his team back within 69-58 then Thompson hit two straight 3s.The Blazers had built a 65-50 halftime lead, capitalizing on 10 Warriors turnovers for 18 points.Then two of the top backcourts in the Western Conference went at it in an entertaining final two quarters.
