Whyyyy Do Women Hate Women?!!!

Originally posted on The Journal:

CHINA

There’s a new craze in China. A group of women will surround a woman accused of cheating with someone they know and strip her completely naked in the streets whilst kicking slapping, punching and even lobbing great lumps of poo at her!

No judge. No jury.

Just a bunch of vengeful witches. Where is the man she was unfaithful with (allegedly) – Either tucked up at home eating food his wife just made or sleeping with someone else. No justice needed for him apparently.
They even did this in front of a bawling child. No one in 3 video’s I have seen stepped in to help.

The goal? Excessive humiliation.

MAGAZINE’S

In the modelling industry, the people maintaining the status quo of photo-shopping women into stick insects and unnecessarily abusing and demoralizing young healthy sized women who want to be models are mostly women, not men.

AFRICA

It is…

Guyana, Cheddi Jagan & the Cold War – By Rosaliene Bacchus

On Saturday, at the People’s Climate Los Angeles – Building Blocks against Climate Change, I had the opportunity to chat with the leader of the small contingent from the Communist Party USA. I learned that he had visited Guyana in 1967.

In the 1960s, in what was then British Guiana, the Catholic Church had drilled the fear of communism into my young impressionable mind. Those were the days of the Cold War. With their dread of the Soviet Union and fear of another Cuba in their backyard, the US government covertly ousted from power Guyana’s populist East Indian leader, the Marxist Cheddi Jagan.

“I met Cheddi Jagan and his wife, Janet,” the white American male said with pride.

SHADOWS OF ALUMINA – By Dmitri Allicock

Alumina plant

SHADOWS OF ALUMINA

By Dmitri Allicock

Silhouette of the Alumina Plant ghostly glow

Where shadows of thousands once flow

Graveyard since 1982, absent toiling horde

Encroaching jungle reclaims without a word

British Guiana’s largest investment of 1961

Processing Alumina by the thousands of tons

Blossoms of Guyana requests your help – Please donate!

Globalgiving

Hello Mr. Bryan, Guyanese Online

The organization that I volunteer with Blossoms of Guyana is currently participating in a global giving challenge where we had to raise $5000 within the month of September to fund a project.

We adopted St Agnes Primary School in Georgetown; our goal is to donate computers to build a computer lab and to provide school supplies to the teachers and students.  I was hoping that you could assist is by sharing our link to your audience online.  We have only a few days left but have not met half of our goal.  Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

You can make your donation at the link below:

Ageing with grace, with a grin, and in motion! – By Prof. Henry S. Fraser

Ageing with Grace, with a grin, and in motion

By Prof. Henry S. Fraser

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Wednesday September 10, 2014 - Having just celebrated my 70th birthday, the whole question of ageing and how we do it has been occupying my thoughts a bit more than usual. There are so many things that determine how long we live, and how we live long … that is, how we deal with it, and enjoy it. And the quotes above have a great deal of truth.

Research on ageing has been going on for some time, although attempts to slow or stop it, mostly ridiculous, have been made for millenia. And every day we read reports of new research with evidence of some of the factors that may determine if we drop dead at forty, live like a sick frog to ninety or go out sailing and singing at a hundred and two.  Continue reading

The Demise of the Nation State – Scotland on the Euphrates – By Uri Avnery

The Demise of the Nation State – Scotland on the Euphrates

20/09/14 –  Uri Avnery

TWO COUNTRIES competed this week for first place in news programs all over the world: Scotland and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

There could not be a greater difference than between these two countries. Scotland is damp and cold, Iraq is hot and dry. Scotland is called after its whisky (or the other way round), while for ISIS fighters, drinking alcohol is the mark of unbelievers, who should lose their head (literally).

However, there is one common denominator of both crises: they mark the approaching demise of the nation-state.

MODERN NATIONALISM, like any great idea in history, was born out of a new set of circumstances: economic, military, spiritual and others, which made older forms obsolete.  Continue reading

British Guiana – By Raymond T. Smith – 1962

British Guiana   –  By  Raymond T. Smith

Oxford University Press 1962, Reprinted 1964. Reprinted in 1980 by Greenwood Press, Connecticut.        

In 1958 or 1959 I was asked by the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London to write a general book on British Guiana.  I readily agreed to do so in spite of the fact that I was about to leave the Caribbean to take up a post at the University of Ghana in West Africa.  The bulk of the book was written during the first half of 1959, in Jamaica and then in Ghana.  Things were changing rapidly in British Guiana during this period and then even more rapidly after the book was published.  I returned to Jamaica from Ghana early in 1962, just before publication.

Although the book was favourably received there were notable exceptions.  Sir Jock Campbell, Chairman of Booker Brothers, a company that had subsidized research in British Guiana through the Commonwealth Foundation’s grant to the Institute of Social and Economic Research at the University of the West Indies, wrote a strong letter complaining that I had accused him, and Bookers, of insincerity in their attempts to introduce a more humane form of capitalism in the management of their sugar enterprises.   Continue reading

Granger announces protests for local govt elections; AFC says no-confidence motion is priority

Granger announces protests for local govt elections; AFC says no-confidence motion is priority

Thursday, 18 September 2014 – Demerara Waves

Even as Opposition Leader David Granger formally announced that A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) would be embarking on protests to pressure government into holding Local Government Elections (LGE), the Alliance For Change (AFC) said the priority should be passing the no-confidence motion to boot the Donald Ramotar administration out of office.

In an address to the nation that largely said nothing new but reiterated APNU’s call for the President to name a date for LGE, Granger said he had no other choice but to call protests.
“We have called on the President to simply set the date on which local government elections will be held. He has not done so. We have therefore embarked on a campaign of lawful, orderly, peaceful public protests – including picketing, rallies and vigils – to raise public awareness of the threat to our collective rights.
