Remembering Dag Hammarskjold

My search for reflections on the life and work of Dag Hammarskjold emanating from Caribbean thinkers and institutions concerned with International Relations may well have been less than vigorous, though, even if it was, I doubt that a great deal was written in the region about the man who is still thought of by many as the best Secretary General the United Nations ever had.

St Barnabus Anglican, Bourda, 1884-2011: A church re-aligned from North-South to East-West

Lennox J Hernandez Broken and spartan, the Anglican Church of St Barnabas, located at Regent Street & Orange Walk, Bourda, Georgetown, opened as a relatively small building in 1884 in a north-south orientation with the main altar at the northern end, and, after a series of grand additions and alterations, consecrated in 1938 with an east-west orientation and the main altar at the east end, is no more.

Football’s fuzzy future

Has the myth of the Guyana Football Federation’s immunity from local sanction been shattered by the recent court injunction that put a brake on the holding of its elections?

Something quite significant happened in local football recently. The Georgetown Football League (GFL) secured a court injunction that brought a halt to the Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF) plans to elect a new executive.
