…on changing the worldWell, your Eyewitness saw the obligatory genuflection to Gandhi at the Promenade Gardens – just as it was done since it’s unveiling back on Oct 2, 1969. The reminder of the prophet of non-violence was probably erected to encourage us to stay off the path of going at each other with hammer and tongs – since that’s what we’d done earlier in the decade in a virtual civil war. Cheddi had said he was a Gandhian, but it hadn’t helped.Interestingly, that technique found more fertile ground in the American South with Martin Luther King, who presented a different option to Malcolm X’s “Burn baby, Burn” tactic to bring attention to America’s seething race problem. It’s a pity the FBI and the CIA didn’t learn anything from King – since his deployment of Satyagraha preceded our 1960’s riots. And we know the FBI kept a careful surveillance on him!!But if our local politicians – who’d gone along and executed the CIA-instigated riots – learnt anything, it wasn’t about “truth force” or suchlike. No sir. After the ‘60’s riots’, “choke and rob” was unleashed in Georgetown in the 1970’s to keep the opposition in line. Gandhi’s message of turning the other cheek didn’t cut much ice with those fellas. By the 80’s we’d moved on to “kick down the door bandits” who’d upped the ante in the infliction of gratuitous violence. More lessons to Opposition supporters even as the speeches on Gandhi’s greatness continued unabated.With the change of government in 1992, extreme, violent hate speeches became the norm and finally it all exploded on Jan 12, 1998, when hundreds of Indian Guyanese were beaten and violated in the streets of Georgetown. The Gandhian message still hadn’t taken hold – but the speechifying didn’t let up. “An eye for an eye will leave everyone blind!” we were told.The violence went to even greater heights (or lows??) in the new millennium. Buxton became an armed state within a state that took on the Guyanese state. Policemen lives were snuffed out like flies and bodies of suspected “bandits” started to litter the roadsides. Gandhi’s philosophy was isolated. That extended violent period – the longest in Guyana’s history didn’t end until a full decade later – in 2008, after the last of the leaders, Fineman Rawlins and his gang, were gunned down. But not until three massacres had sent the nation into shock.It’s been eight years since Fineman’s demise. Can we hope that finally those who have grouses might want to settle them peacefully?Has Gandhi’s “eye for an eye” warning kicked in?…for Colombian guerrilla warBut if we Guyanese bemoan the lack of receptivity to the Gandhian path of settling disputes peacefully here – think about what just happened in Colombia. There, leftist guerrillas under their organisation FARC, have been fighting the government for over FIFTY-TWO YEARS!! Where over 260,000 persons have been killed. Now you’d think Colombia was ripe for peace, no? The world thought so!But no! After a peace deal was brokered and signed by the government and FARC, it was taken to the people to be ratified in a referendum. And guess what vox populi said… NO PEACE! CONTINUE THE WAR!! Now what’s going on here? “Vengeance” is going on… that’s what. While the vote was very close – just a 0.25 per cent difference between the two sides.The decision gives a whole new meaning to the word “winner” since more people will die unless some face saving way out is brokered. U2’s Bono and Beatles’ Ringo Starr failed to stay the victory of the “Yes to war!”Maybe we could send our statue of Gandhi to drum up support for “his way”??…on natural disastersWith Hurricane Matthew approaching Jamaica and Haiti… your Eyewitness is reminded of the retort by the Guyanese who was complimented for having no natural disasters in Guyana.“We had Burnham!” It shut up his WI friend.
Devilman is one of the coolest anime and manga characters around, and a life-sized replica of the hero would certainly make for an eye-catching display in your home. One of his famous poses finds him sitting, pondering something, on Tokyo Tower, which you’ll see in several smaller toys and figures. But there’s one huge life-sized version that you can pick up as well if your money is burning a hole in your pocket, or if you happen to own a large home or mansion in which to display it.そうだ、今なら「のん」こと元能年玲奈はデビルマン演れる。エンディングだけでも見たい。東京タワーに腕組みして座ってるアレ。「誰も知らない 知られちゃいけない のんが誰なのか」「何も言えない 話しちゃいけない のんが誰なのか」 pic.twitter.com/fvZuspcxTX— ゾルゲ市蔵 (@zolge1) February 12, 2017In case you’re unfamiliar with Devilman, it’s a series from Go Nagai that follows a young man who ends up being turned into a “devilman” (half human, half devil) and combats demons who want to take over the world. Akira Fudo is Devilman himself, though you wouldn’t know it just by looking at the superpowered version of the character.くっそかっこいー！ pic.twitter.com/49XU2L4h3Y— やっしゅ (@ya_5hz) April 16, 2018If you want to make this huge version of Devilman your own, it is for sale, however. You can make a sojourn to Japan to go to the hobby shop Jungle and make it yours for a whopping $3,505, which is understandably prohibitively expensive, but how awesome would this looking sitting in a chair in your home? You could then watch Devilman and Devilman Crybaby as well as all the other spinoffs and OVAs with your big, oversized half-devil, half-human pal.If you do go out and spend all that cash on this figure, don’t come back and blame us for your rash decisions — you know you agreed it was a cool idea before you even decided to do it. And certainly don’t buy one for me, too. That would be an awful idea, wouldn’t it? Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

VANCOUVER — The wildfires ripping through British Columbia’s Interior are beginning to exact an economic toll, forcing companies in the forestry and mining sectors to scale back or suspend operations altogether.“We saw a really, really bad fire issue in 2003 in the region, but nothing this widespread,” said Greg Munden, president of Munden Ventures Ltd. The log hauling and harvesting company shut down harvesting operations two weeks ago.About 30 to 40 logging companies spanning from Merritt, B.C., to several hundred kilometres north in Williams Lake have also shut down harvesting operations, Munden said.As of Monday morning, most areas ceased hauling operations as well, while some companies stopped work at their mills, he added.West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. (TSX:WFT) closed its 100 Mile House, Williams Lake and Chasm, B.C., locations as of the afternoon of Sunday, July 9, according to a statement.The company’s mills near active fires “have staff and resources that are being deployed to protect our facilities and the community,” the statement said.Norbord Inc. (TSX:OSB) says it has shut down its wood panel mill, also in 100 Mile House, and it’s assessing what impact the fires will have on its production schedule.The company says all of the mill’s employees safely left the area, with no reported injuries, and the site was secure at the time of the evacuation.Tolko Industries Ltd. said on its Facebook page that its two Williams Lake locations, the Lakeview and Soda Creek mills, would not open Monday and managers would meet daily to determine whether to open going forward.Meanwhile, in the mining industry, Imperial Metals Corp. (TSX:III) said it significantly reduced operations at the Mount Polley open pit copper and gold mine in the Williams Lake area.Imperial Metals says many of the roads used to access the site have been closed and if critical supplies such as fuel are no longer available, the mine may suspend operations altogether.Currently, neither the local communities nor the province can expect to feel a significant economic impact, said Harry Nelson, an assistant professor at the University of British Columbia.A company like West Fraser, for example, can ramp up production at its other locations to mitigate losses from the closed site, said Nelson, who teaches in the department of forest resource management.If the fires continue to grow, however, it can get more difficult to make up lost production, he said.“I think we’re still aways from that, hopefully.”If companies start losing buildings, like mills, to the fires, Nelson said, local communities could feel the brunt of the fallout if a producer chooses not to rebuild in the area.Nelson pointed to a Tolko Industries sawmill in Louis Creek, B.C., that was destroyed in a 2003 fire. The company chose not to rebuild, citing economic forces at play at the time.The fire appears to be within a couple kilometres of the Norbord mill, wrote Paul C. Quinn, an RBC Dominion Securities Inc. analyst, in a note. He added it’s assumed business interruption and commercial insurance would cover potential losses, which could include roughly $140 million to $145 million to replace the mill.In 2003, wildfires in the province cost the B.C. economy $1.3 billion in direct fire suppression costs and indirect economic losses, according to a paper by the provincial Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.
