Scrap The Guyana Prize for Literature

first_imgDear Editor,I am delighted to respond to Mr Al Creighton’s letter, ‘’Guyana Prize took variety of initiatives to assist writers living here”, published in sections of the media on July 12, 2018. He responded to my question about the delay of the award ceremony for last year; that’s a year now lagging behind because of a lack of funding from the Government. How does he expect me to know that, may I ask? Yet he compares this incompetent prize to literary awards abroad.This Prize was established in 1987 by President Hugh Desmond Hoyte when this nation was actually the poorest in the Western Hemisphere, and one wonders why this Prize for Literature in a starving nation.Maybe Desmond Hoyte had a motive to invite the literary brains that migrated abroad for publication and literary exposure. When Wilson Harris won the Guyana Prize in 1987, Mr. Hoyte asked Harris to remain here to work. Harris told Hoyte his offer was not lucrative enough. I believe Hoyte had a political motive behind the Guyana Prize for Literature, that’s why this new administration should scrap this Prize and use the money to educate our young scholars.Since the inception of the Prize, in 1987, Mr Al Creighton has been the Secretary and Administrator of this Prize for 30.5 years. May I say he is the judge, jury, and executioner of this Prize? I don’t know of any award in this world which ever retains the services of one man or woman for over thirty years; and he is not even a born Guyanese.My major contention with this award is the incestuous clique of judges alternating as judge one year then entrants/winners the next year, monotonously like a spinning perpetual ‘’yo-yo’’, and he has the mind to tell the Guyanese people that this practice of judges becoming entrants is a normal procedure with literary awards abroad. That is absolutely ridiculous! This man is deceived, and he is lying to our Guyanese people.In my opinion, any literary award in the world where judges are alternating as entrants is a fraud that needs to be scrapped.Editor, I am currently a judge for the Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2018. I was sent from Cambridge University 12 pages of judging criteria for this award. The criteria is very confidential; no one in my family read it, and no relative or my children is an entrant. So, as a senior judge, how will it look if I submitted an entry next year for this award? I cannot, because I am barred from entering.Mr Creighton cannot see the morality, ethics, and integrity of this spurious literary award, because he has compromised the standard of this award to give it to an incestuous clique of friends, along with some scapegoat incompetent writers here in Guyana who have written ‘’literary pornography’’ to receive US$5000 for ‘blue book’ literature.I am calling for a CoI into this award. It is a fraud, and I am willing to take the stand against Al Creighton and his corrupt committee, to defend this award for the rights and dignity of our Guyanese writers who are robbed and cheated by corrupt and compromised judging. Maybe we need a referendum in Parliament to scrap this award. I am willing to debate it pro bono.I wish to quote from a past Guyana Prize winner, Ryhaan Shah, from her Guyana Times Sunday Column of July 22, captioned ‘’Revamping the Guyana Prize’’. “‘The Prize appears to be controlled by cronies who alternate as judges and winners, thus keeping the Prize and monies awarded within a favoured clique. I had no interest in having my work judged by a prize committee whose integrity was questionable’’.It takes a very honest mind to pen these words after reading this debate between myself and Mr Al Creighton.This Prize, which costs millions, needs keen scrutiny from the Government. For the good of this nation, this Government must do the honourable thing and scrap The Guyana Prize for Literature.Regards,Rev. Gideon Cecil(Author, Poet& Literary Critic)last_img read more

Apple shares hit high on move to embrace Intel

first_img Jobs said its entire Mac line will be converted to Intel by the end of 2006. The shift comes as Apple’s hugely popular iPods continue to enthrall the public. Apple brought in a record $5.7 billion in sales during the holiday quarter as it sold 14 million iPods – nearly three times as many units as it did in the same period a year ago, Jobs said. Meanwhile, Apple’s online iTunes store has sold more than 850 million songs and 8 million videos to date, he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “Now consumers can buy a Mac that is three times faster and for the same price,” said Nathan Brookwood, an analyst with the Insight 64 research firm. Apple shares soared $3.04, or 3.8 percent, to close at a split-adjusted record high of $83.90 on the Nasdaq Stock Market on Wednesday. With the success of its iPod players and flashy retail stores, Apple has already begun siphoning customers from the Windows camp. After years of hovering around 3 percent, Apple last year cracked 4 percent of the U.S. PC market. Apple’s historic shift to Intel microprocessors came months earlier than expected as CEO Steve Jobs debuted Tuesday an iMac desktop and a notebook based on the chip makers’ new two-brained processor, the Intel Core Duo. When it first announced plans to switch in June, Apple said it expected to begin making the transition by mid-2006. On Tuesday, Jobs was joined at the Macworld Expo by Intel CEO Paul Otellini to unveil the new jointly designed computers. SAN FRANCISCO – Apple Computer Inc. shares leapt to an all-time high on Wednesday, boosted by its decision to use Intel Corp. microprocessors to help it grab a bigger share of the desktop PC market. Apple is tapping not only the latest chip technologies that rival makers of Windows-based computers will use but also the vast marketing power that Intel, the world’s largest semiconductor company, delivers. Apple unveiled its first two machines with Intel’s Core Duo – an iMac and new laptop – on Tuesday and said it would not thwart users who would seek to run Microsoft Corp.’s Windows operating system on the machines. With Intel processors inside the new Macs, their owners could run Microsoft Windows and software designed for it at full speed. The move to Intel chips will boost Apple’s sales and erase the perception that Macintosh computers lag behind Windows-based PCs in performance, analysts said. last_img read more

JASON BLACK SENDS EMOTIONAL BLOG AS HE BEGINS FINAL ASCENT OF MOUNT EVEREST (WITH HIS DONEGAL FLAG!)

first_imgDONEGAL man Jason Black has sent a final emotional blog before he sets off to scale the final slopes of Mount Everest.The Letterkenny man is bidding to become the first man from the county to scale the incredible mountain.Good luck Jason from Donegal Daily and everyone in the county. Here’s what he wrote before heading off.The summit bid is on …keep you posted. “Somehow”My time has come to say goodbye as my Mt Everest summit awaits at 29.089ft (8848m). But before I go today it’s hard not to look back and remember fondly those early days roaming the Irish hills as a young cub-scout unconsciously laying a great foundation, my Sylvia compass in one hand and a dew damp map in the other navigating my way around a set up course hoping to correctly hit all the right co-ordinances, competing to be first finished.Those days were so enjoyable with life-long friends Clive, Keith Francie Adrian & Brian who can be still seen out enjoying the wonderful great outdoors; Especially close to my heart Mt Errigal, as we beat back the painful endurance of the Irish recession, if only for a few hours weekly. So from Mt Errigal to today, I stand accountable infront of the wonder of the higest mountain in the world – ‘so what has she in store for me?’ I ask myself.Over the last 4/5weeks I’ve lived a life in a sometimes claustrophobic tent staring endlessly at my domed surface roof with a frosty icy surface that sparkles above as my head torch lights up my own personal sky.Eating noodle soup day after day and an offering of an alternative flavor of tomato chicken or mushroom feels like Christmas morning but beggars can’t be choosers …lol.Yes expedition life on Mount Everest quickly removes you from all the simple sensual pleasures of modern home life and it’s simply down to survival at these crazy super high altitudes.Yet today I feel a real sense of pride and ambition as I pack away my Donegal and Irish flag into my summit rucksack, I’ve a feeling of pleasurable anticipation and a surge of excitement yet flanked with a sense of responsibility to be the first to deliver the Donegal flag to the highest summit in the world and I wrote that with a lump in my throat. For five weeks this mountain “Mt Everest” has been everything to me I feel I’ve become part of its heartbeat, it’s been my selfish life, and I’ve been consumed totally with its majestic splendour as it stands boastfully above all others in the world and the physical mental and emotional demands it has heavily placed upon me, taking me sometimes to within a human hair of breaking point, it’s been hard, hard work but pleasurable.Defying some of my sceptics today, I set of on my final leg to the top of the world. Checked and double checked I’ve all my gear for survival, hats gloves down suit moon boots – pee bottle (lol), face pasted layer thick with sun cream ready for the blazing solar radiation at 10 times sea level strength.Today’s a beautiful day. I woke to the day’s beautiful sunrise, mindful of mixed emotions could it be my last or will I stand proudly with the greatest view in the world? Am I ready? Can I do this? But how wonderful to have this chance to find out.What a privilege to be here, and on this famous stage, playing out this final scene saying to myself, ‘Jason – you’re never going to get a better chance, be proud, be very very proud.’ What a treat, I can hardly believe this is happening. Who could have imagined I would have ended up here?. …A proud Donegal man from out the Ramelton Road, Magheranan, acting the maggot and having great fun as a skinny young leap-about.But life’s strange path has brought me here in a strange unpredictable way, it has led inexorably to this moment, as though all those other life adventures were a preparation for this greatest adventure of all…Lastly before I set off I’d like to thank everyone for there wonderful support & good wishes.I hope to do you all proud.To my family thank you for allowing me to follow my dream and I will be forever grateful.Finally Sharon, Laura, Kate, Billy & wee Ella words are immeasurable at this crossroads ..Now I’m off to physically stand closer – if only for a brief moment in time, with my Mother Freda and my brother Billy since their untimely departure from this world.JasonXJASON BLACK SENDS EMOTIONAL BLOG AS HE BEGINS FINAL ASCENT OF MOUNT EVEREST (WITH HIS DONEGAL FLAG!) was last modified: May 12th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:JASON BLACK SENDS EMOTIONAL BLOG AS HE BEGINS FINAL ASCENT OF MOUNT EVERESTlast_img read more

BROTHER OF MAN INVOLVED IN GARDA DEATH APPEARS ON CATALOGUE OF DRIVING CHARGES

first_imgThe brother of a man involved in an incident in which a Garda was killed has appeared in court facing a catalogue of dangerous driving offences.Kevin Dunleavy leaving court. Pic by Northwest Newspix.Kevin Dunleavy appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday following an incident in which he led Gardai on a 25 km chase. Dunleavy’s brother Cathal served a jail sentence for an incident in which Garda Robbie McCallion died in Letterkenny in 2009.Cathal Dunleavy was released recently from prison after being jailed for five years for his part in the crime.Judge Paul Kelly was told that Kevin Dunleavy, 29, from Meentagh, Kerrykeel, has already been banned from driving for four times.The court was given a detailed version of the pursuit which happened on August 8th 2012.Gda Inspector Michael Harrison revealed how his officers had to take evasive action to avoid colliding with Dunleavy’s speeding car.The car reached speeds of 150kms per hour and even went onto the wrong side of the road on several occasions.Pursuing Gardai eventually stopped as they deemed it too dangerous to the public to continue.Even when Gardai attended Dunleavy’s house, he managed to speed off after he saw them waiting for him.Dunleavy had 69 previous convictions for motoring offences, and had been banned from driving on four occasions for periods of 18, 25, another 25 and 30 years.His solicitor Donagh Cleary said his client accepted his behaviour had been intolerable.But added that he hadn’t been before the court on road charges since 2010.A surprised Judge Kelly said “Well he wouldn’t have done as he has been banned from driving for 30 years”.However his solicitor said his client wads a changed man and wanted just another chance.He then asked that a probation report be carried out on the accused.The Judge added “I can’t see how I can deal with this case in any other way that by way of a custodial sentence.“It is the worst case of its kind by a considerable distance – the worst I’ve seen either in practice or on the bench – with someone driving like this over 25kms through small towns and villages and side roads.”The case was adjourned until June 18th.BROTHER OF MAN INVOLVED IN GARDA DEATH APPEARS ON CATALOGUE OF DRIVING CHARGES was last modified: April 17th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:carCATHAL DUNLEAVYdonegalGarda Robbie McCallionjailKevin Dunleavylast_img read more
