3 Guyanese young women act as President, PM, Canadian High Commissioner for a day

first_imgInternational Day of the Girl ChildAs women across the world celebrate International Day of the Girl Child tomorrow, three Guyanese young women – Renuka Persaud, Delicia George and Sara Mohan – were selected to hold the post of President, Prime Minister and Canadian High Commissioner for one day.Held under the 2018 theme, “With Her: A Skilled Girl Force”, the Day of the Girl Child marks the beginning of a year-long effort to help girls attain skills for employability, through a campaign that will bring together advocates and supporters to highlight the most pressing needs and to identify opportunities forFrom left: Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo; Prime Minister for the day, Delicia George; Canadian High Commissioner for the day, Sara Mohan; Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana, Lilian Chatterjee; President for the day, Renuka Persaud and President David Grangerinvestment.According to Canadian Ambassador to Guyana, Lilian Chatterjee, “A day of the girl child” which is spearheaded by Canada, is to remind us of the barriers placed in the path of girls which prevent them from fulfilling their potential.“In 2016, the successful candidate was named High Commissioner for a day. Last year, I asked PM (Moses) Nagamootoo to join PM Trudeau to give up his seat for a day so last year we had a PM for a day and High Commissioner for a day. Based on its success, this year, we broadened the competition with President Granger hosting a President for a day in addition to the PM for a day and High Commissioner for a day,” Chatterjee explained in an interview with Guyana Times.Further she noted that the day is set aside to focus its attention on the challenges girls face, and promotes girls’ empowerment and fulfillment of their human rights.In Guyana, the Canadian High Commission has marked this day with a competition for young women, inviting them to send videos telling us why this day is important.Meanwhile, during a courtesy call at Cabinet on Tuesday morning, where both President Granger and Prime Minister Nagamootoo gave up their seats, President for the day, 18-year-old, Renuka Persaud said observing International Day of the Girl Child, in her opinion, means raising awareness both locally and internationally about the human rights of girls. Women and girls, she said, play an integral role inFirst Lady Sandra Granger is a meeting with the President of the day, Renuka Persaud; Prime Minister of the day, Delicia George; and Canadian High Commissioner of the day, Sara Mohan at State House. Also in photo is Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana, Lilian Chatterjeesociety and it is imperative that their rights be respected.“It is an incredible opportunity to be here today, sitting in the President’s seat as the President of the day. It is a really great opportunity to have a girl in this position to speak for our own rights because that is what International Day of the Girl Child is about. [It is] about giving girls the opportunity to speak for themselves and to have their say,” Persaud said in an interview with the Public Affairs Department of the Ministry of the Presidency.Persaud recently graduated from Queen’s College. She plans on continuing her education in the ICT sector in order to pursue a career in programming and software engineering. In addition to programming, she also likes to paint, read and animate (like in her Day of the Girl video submission) in her spare time.Meanwhile, Delicia George, Prime Minister for a day, is 20 years old and a student at the University of Guyana. She enjoys dancing and swimming but spends most of her time volunteering with different youth groups. She aspires to be a lawyer.The Prime Minister for the day, George, in her presentation, urged women to “break glass ceilings” and to pursue initiatives which can help them to become better individuals and positive contributors to society.Canadian High Commissioner for a day, Sara Mohan, is 20 years old. She attended St Joseph High School and has an Associate’s Degree in humanities. She aspires to be a diplomat.Mohan used the opportunity to call for more action, rather than lip service, to conquer gender inequality and violence against women and girls.The trio were also given the opportunity to share their experiences thus far and all concluded that “it is indeed hard work” serving as President, Prime Minister and Canadian High Commissioner.Following the courtesy call at Cabinet, the young women met with First Lady Sandra Granger at State House, where they discussed several areas of mutual interest, including Robotics, Information and Communication Technology, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and women and girls’ empowerment.First Lady Sandra Granger praised the initiative as she noted that “it allows our girls to dream as big as they want to.”While this is the second year the Canadian High Commission has partnered with the Government of Guyana to afford girls such opportunities, this is the first year that there has been a ‘President for the day’.As part of the activities, each of the young women was given a tour of their respective offices and Parliament Buildings. They were also treated to tea with the Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland.last_img read more

Alaskas Bears How the understanding of humanbear interactions has changed

first_imgAlaska’s bears haven’t changed in the last two decades, but scientific understanding of them has. Back country enthusiast and writer Bill Sherwonit has released an updated version of his book Alaska’s Bears. Sherwonit told APRN’s Lori Townsend that a better understanding of the impacts of climate change, especially for polar bears is a big part of the update.Listen nowSHERWONIT: “It really is worrisome from the perspective of polar bears as to how badly affected they’re gonna be remains a question, but there’s no question they face huge challenges.TOWNSEND: What does the science say? What’s known about how adaptable they are if they have to start spending more time on land as opposed to sea ice? Is it hopeful they could do that and maybe learn to be more land-based terrestrial bears instead of ice-based bears?SHERWONIT: Most species adapt over long periods of time. The window here is looking like it could be pretty small. And a lot does depend on whether the so-called greenhouse gases and stuff in the atmosphere are stabilized at some point, begin to decrease, or continue to grow. So there is a lot that isn’t known. There is evidence that more and more polar bears are spending more time on land but again their primary source of food is an ocean animal. So, will they, as a species, be able to somehow adapt to just a completely different food regiment? It’s a huge question. It’s like that’s a major change.TOWNSEND: What do scientists know now about human-bear interactions that maybe has changed in that 20-year window? Or has it changed?SHERWONIT: I think when things are done right, there’s a general understanding that bears are less dangerous than most people perceive them to be. There’s plenty of evidence, and more and more evidence, that if people really do follow “Bear Aware” rules that the possibility of being harmed is really small. Almost all bear attacks, a great majority of bear attacks, occur when a bear when a bear is surprised at close quarters. And then the bears have to make a snap decision just like the humans do. And really there are only two choices: One is to retreat, which most bears do. The other is to get rid of the threat, and so the best way for a bear to get rid of the threat is to attack. But I think the growing body of evidence that contradicts the bears as the simplistic notion of bears as these dangerous bloodthirsty critters, I think, is just substantially more now.TOWNSEND: Are you saying that the more that’s known about bear behavior is that, the overwhelming sentiment is that, if they can avoid human interactions, that’s actually their preference as well as ours?SHERWONIT: Yeah, even the historical evidence has suggested that, you know bears and humans co-evolved right, but there’s no evidence that I know of that bears ever treated people as prey. It was more like they were competitors.Bill Sherwonit’s updated edition of Alaska’s Bears is available now.last_img read more
