The coming of the DEA to Guyana – commentary

The coming of the DEA

JULY 24, 2014 | BY KNEWS |  EDITORIAL 

The long awaited official United States Drug Enforcement Administration presence within these borders is a welcome departure from the intransigent posture and insipid rhetoric from officialdom to which we have become accustomed.

It is a truism that crime knows no geographic boundaries and the ease with which transnational criminal enterprises flourish in the realms of drug trafficking and money laundering bears that fact out.  The increasingly international scope of this type of criminal activity has proven complex in the face of law enforcement efforts to interdict the illicit proceeds of these crimes.

However, the uninformed among us would want to know what capacities and capabilities have been developed in consideration of the aspects of money laundering, and whether these are aggressively being investigated in a scenario where confidential information-sharing is problematic.  Continue reading

Louie Schwartzberg: Hidden miracles of the natural world

Published on Apr 9, 2014 - We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes.

At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled “Mysteries of the Unseen World,” which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.

World Control -Thinking outside of the box-  by Joan.

Joan is one of our readers.  She sent this e-mail to Guyanese Online.

There is an over abundance of Muslim Hate E-mails going around these days. There are a lot of pictures and videos and talk about them over-running the countries in Europe.

I cannot see anyone taking over any WHITE country.

Why did those Governments take them into the country in the first place?

All they have to do is isolate them with bad schools, put them in jail, and when they come out there will be no jobs. Then give them dope to sell and guns to kill each other.  This way they do not have to kill them.

That has been very successful in some inner cities in some countries we know about. Continue reading
