The Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry (GBTI) on Friday revealed its 2019 calendar while the students who participated in the art competition were also rewarded. The six students – Chelsea Wallerson, Mariana Ramai, Lorenzo Smartt, Darshanie Pirana, Unn Persaud and Shavanie Balkissoon – were among more than 130 students who would have entered their artworks to be featured in the calendar.As they were rewarded, Public Relations and Marketing Manager, Pamela Binda pointed out that along with the creative pieces, the almanac is inked with the banking institution’s new tagline “We see Guyana through your eyes”. They are also aligned to focus more on retail and commercial lending.“We have been focusing more on commercial lending and this is one of the reasons you will see GBTI being repositioned and one of the reasons we have a new tagline ‘We see Guyana through your eyes’. We’re more than banking. We believe in people achieving their dreams,” Binda noted.She further stated that the response from stakeholders surpassed all expectations, while added that the Bank will continue to support and investing in youths.“This year exceeded more than we anticipated. Thankfully, people still see our calendar art competition as one that is worthwhile entering and this is testimony to the fact that we invest in our young people and we will continue to do this. The bank will continue to make avenues like these possible so that persons can exhibit their skills and talents,” she asserted.Meanwhile, Executive Director Richard Isava stated, “Many times, we don’t encourage our children to participate in the arts and literature and music. This is a great demonstration that there are many careers in Guyana that you can pursue.”Consumers can look forward to their decorated calendar next year which features the six winning pieces.

BY JAMES MORRISON in CLONES: It may not have the glamour of the Munster Championship, but Down showed real class in despatching Donegal from this year’s Ulster Senior Hurling Championship in Clones.In the end Donegal were well beaten by a resurgent Down side, with 24 points between the sides in the quarter-final match – the curtain-raiser for the footballers of Monaghan and Tyrone.Down’s 1-31 to 0-10 win was fully deserved. But for the first 15 minutes or so, Donegal had held their own despite missing Danny Cullen and Enda McDermott, the latter to a one match ban and the former to a nasty cruciate ligament injury.Ciaran Mathewson had hit five points by that stage to keep Donegal just two points behind the Mourne men (0-08 to 0-06) but he also missed a penalty and it was Down who kicked on, Ryan Brannigan finding the net and giving them a 12 point half-time lead (1-16 to 0-07).Even the best optimist’s hopes of a comeback were soon destroyed as Down’s Scott Nicholson and Johnny McCusker ran riot in the second half, pointing 13 times between them as Donegal managed just three more points in the game.
