GPA fraud suspected

We will have to buy some rat poison from "cross-eye" because the smell of rats is everywhere.

It is now over at the Guyana Press Association (GPA) according to the folks over at Livinguyana (Click Link). We simple cannot understand why in this dear land of ours have the members of GPA allow a group of people to run a mock of the organisation.

This unholy situation is taking place at a time when the members of the GPA themselves are reporting on a fraud at GPL. We have noticed that Prime News was the first one to break this GPL fraud and Prime News is also where the President of the GPA holds a significant amount of shares.

Questions must be asked of the current executives as to why such a problem has not been fixed for the time they were in office.

Talk name has it that non of the current executives are likely to run for re-election and we wonder why?

The door is certainly open for speculations. We will launch our own investiagtions to see if we can come up with any evidence to suggest that a white-collar crime has occurred in the GPA.

This looks like a scam...screem for the police...

Below is the exact text of a mail that was sent to us for us to give money....don't be duped.

Dear Guyana,

We have just recently entered our second year online, and I want to take a moment to ask you for your support of our free service.

Putfile has experienced a rapid rate of growth and development over the past year, growing from a small image hosting site to an enormous free multimedia hosting community with over 12 million uploads.

Putfile is run by a group of volunteers who donate their time providing everything from software development to server management and content moderation.

We strive to create a safe and fun environment for people of all ages to enjoy. As part of this quality experience Putfile does not employ the use of flashing adverts or annoying popups, whilst using such advertising media could cover the shortfalls in our budget they would most certainly damage the user experience.

With bandwidth and server hardware bills continually growing at a rapid rate, we now need your support more than ever. Please consider a generous donation so that we can raise the funds needed to keep us online and further improve our free services.

To make a donation please visit: http://www.putfile.com/donate.php

Thank you from all of us at Putfile!

Guyana360: Do you smell something?...We do, we smell a rat. We recieved this by mail asking for donation. Like Guyanese seem to like getting rip off so people come with all sorts of mind boggling ways to fleece them of their hard earn cash. Who are these volunteers and where are they?

We will just not fall for this scam and hope that many others don't either...By the way all of this is happening as police and army remain blinded by the search for stolen guns and other illigal items.

Big Bill in Town...

Big Bill is back, check out his latest crack here

New Blog on the Block

This is a new blog on the block. Someone name Sharon is responsible for this new blog, which promises to change the ugly ass ads we have in our newspapers.

Guyana’s ugly ads need fixing.

So you have a business and you advertise. You, or perhaps your ad agency, designs something that looks like 'a set of words and pictures thrown into a square box on a page'. But that’s ok. You then spend good money to print it for all Guyana to see, only to have few or no one respond to your offer. What gives?

You are suffering from a classic case of ugly advertising my friend. The kind that never sells but only compels your customer to turn the page. Leaving them open to the other guy's sales leads.
Ask for some advice, I'll give it. Send me specific questions, if you feel your advertising could do with a face lift. This is no time to be lazy. Do something. You're loosing customers and paying to do so, every time you publish one of those ugly ads in Guyana's newspapers.


Presenting… MTV Choir

The MTV musical orchestra has taken its place among the some of the greatest choirs Guyana has ever known.

Though quietly rehearsing and even with little recognition from fans for the hard work put in to please the instructor, MTV’s choir plays on.

Kudos must go to the lead singer, Kerry Persaud for pulling each musical note correctly. He really knows how to hit the notes…Sing on.
Romel Remand, another singer over at MTV is doing good too.
We suspect that he will not be around for long since some guy name Sancho is looking for him.

All the things you never need to know as a Guyanese:

1. The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as substitute for blood plasma.
2.No piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times.
3.Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes.
4.The king of hearts is the only king without a moustache.
5.Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise.
6. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.
7.The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.
8.Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin.
9. The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer.
10. Pearls melt in vinegar.
11. The three most valuable brand names on earth: Marlboro,Coca-Cola,and Budweiser, in that order.
12. It is possible to lead a cow upstairs...but not downstairs.
13.A duck's quack doesn't echo and no one knows why.
14.Turtles can breathe through their butts.
15. On average, 100 people choke to death on ball-point pens every year.
16.Elephants are the only animals that can't jump.
17.Women blink nearly twice as much as men.
18.It's physically impossible for you to lick your elbow.
19. The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed to take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building.
20.A snail can sleep for three years.
21.No word in the English language rhymes with "MONTH."
22.Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing. 23. All polar bears are left handed.
24. A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out.
25.Almost everyone who reads this will try to lick their elbow.

Jobs needed

Guyana should take note of what the United Nations is saying...

UN: Some 430 million new jobs will be required over the next decade to keep pace with a growing labour force, mostly in developing countries, through policies replacing jobless with “job-rich” growth, according to the head of the United Nations labour agency.

President Jagdeo to host media dinner...Now?


"Recognising the contribution of the local media, Head of State President Bharrat Jagdeo will be hosting members on Saturday evening at a dinner.
This has been a traditional initiative of the President, but in the past took the form of a media brunch.
The event is usually held early in the year, but none was held in 2005, because of the widespread flooding that resulted in a national disaster."

Guyana 360: Is this some sort of a joke? They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, thats true. That is also true for the media. We are just concerned as to why would the President host a dinner at this time just before elections. We had flooding this year too.

Just to let those Journo quacks know, the President has not entertained a single press conference within the last few weeks even with so much unusual occurances.

He has gone on several important overseas conferences and has refused to face the media on those outcomes.

By the way, we heard that at the last dinner organised by His Excellency, the media was unfed and had to sit and wait on several important persons to finish eating before they could get their story. Served the them right, they like eat.
But it was a bit bad on the President's behalf, because he was hosting a dinner in honor of Former Jamaican Prime Minister, PJ Patterson.

Those who were there would know.

Why leave?

Why would these people leave, they have been doing a good job in keeping the local media on their toes.

But then again they would opt to leave...They have run cold on their blog. Sections such as the strong talker and wrong talker have fallen by the way side, just like some political movements and forces we know.

But then again, who will want to stay. Probably it might be the best time to leave given all the recent revelations.

Good riddance poor chaps...........

Question Time with Julia J

When will our local media practitioners be able to ask probing questions of our local officials?

Julia J tried yesterday when the army and police swooped down on Oliver Hinkson and Gibson.

As far as Channel 9’s signal could go and based on the fact that it covers most of the highly populated areas, it means that over 100,000 persons probably watched Prime News last night.

Now with so many people watching, Roger Khan included, (Looking to see what the U.S and Joint Services are doing) Julia J pops the million dollar question to one of the Army officials.

Julia J: What is next in the search for the missing guns?

Guyana 360: Julia J popped a nursery school child’s question. She could not have expected the army official to say what their next moves were with many people tuned in. She must have been playing the dream.

None of the reporters have picked up Khan or the Government on statements made by Khan that he is prepared to testify to a commission of inquiry.

In fact none of the reporters have sought to ask the PNCR if they have a driver by the name of omadelly or another person named Mike as Mentioned on the taped telephone conversations.

Come on Reporters ask them tough searching questions.

Extra Extra eXtRa?

There is an ole Guyanese adage that we learnt when we first got here...What goes around comes around.

The S.S.S Smith has sailed across the media spectrum, docking at every port possible. Port Six, Port four, you name them, he has been there.

Now for some ExTrA News, read all about it...

Smith has made a 360 turn, returning to where his earler journey started, Prime News.

We were amazed to hear Smith on Prime News. We just had to check the station to ensure it wasn't a lower station.

The life and times of the media...We say no more.
