Parliament Building – Georgetown. Guyana

Ministry re-established, new ministry named in minor cabinet shuffle

 The Ministry of the Presidency Thursday announced the re-establishment of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the establishment of a new one called the Ministry of Telecommunications.

Making the official announcement that Minister of Tourism, Catherine Hughes will now be named Minister for Public Telecommunications, while maintaining Ministerial responsibility for Tourism, President Granger said, “The reason is that after seven months, we detected a gap that there is no single spokesperson in the National Assembly, a Ministerial spokesperson, dealing with the digital economy [and] dealing with information technology. So we decided that it was necessary to have a Minister responsible for information and communication technology.”

Additionally, the Ministry of Governance and the Protection of the National Patrimony is being renamed the Ministry of Natural Resources.  Minister Raphael Trotman will now be named Minister of Natural Resources.    Continue reading

Dr. Jill Stein: Reject The Lesser Evil… Choose The Greater Good – by Rosaliene Bacchus

Dr. Jill Stein: Reject The Lesser Evil… Choose The Greater Good.

by Rosaliene Bacchus

Reblogged from THE ONENESS of HUMANITY:   By Jerry Alatalo

Many are becoming aware that Hillary Clinton isn’t the only woman in the United States attempting to break the “glass ceiling” and become elected the first woman President. After Bernie Sanders exited the race many of his followers have urged him to join with Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who offered him the top position on the Green ticket, an invitation to join forces and continue the remarkable political revolution Sanders’ campaign had generated.  [Read more]

Britain’s economy: PM Theresa May’s “New Industrial Strategy”

Britain’s economy: PM Theresa May’s “New Industrial Strategy”

Theresa May

P.M. Theresa May

July 24, 2016 – The Economist

Theresa May, Britain’s prime minister, bucked political orthodoxy by elevating “industrial strategy” to the top of her new government’s agenda. She has indicated that her strategy will include raising Britain’s low productivity, pressing ahead with big infrastructure projects and scrutinising foreign takeovers. For now the policy remains somewhat inchoate, but already free-market types are worried.

Why “industrial strategy” is back?

THERESA MAY, Britain’s new prime minister, has certainly been bold, maybe even foolhardy, in some of her cabinet appointments. But she has been equally bold in elevating “industrial strategy” to the top of her new government’s agenda—a move that could mark a clear break with her predecessor’s governments.   Continue reading

Being Black In The Wrong Place – All Lives Matter – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Being Black In The Wrong Place – All Lives Matter

Keith Childress, Bettie Jones, Kevin Matthews, Leroy Browning, Roy Nelson, Miguel Espinal, Nathaniel Pickett, Tiara Thomas, Cornelius Brown, Chandra Weaver … and 102 others.  What do they have in common? They were black people that were killed by the police in 2015. These killings amounted to about twice per week.

Here are the findings. Nearly one in three Blacks killed by the police were unarmed. A total of 37 per cent of Blacks in 2015 were killed despite the fact that they are only 13% of the US population. Unarmed blacks were killed at five times the rate of unarmed whites in 2015.

What is also disturbing is the fact that only 10 of the 102 cases in 2015 where an unarmed Black person was killed by police resulted in officers being charged with a crime.

USA Elections: The Democratic Party Convention – Day 2: July 26, 2016

USA Elections: The Democratic Party Convention – Day 2: July 26, 2016

We’ve now officially passed the halfway point of the Democratic National Convention. Former president Bill Clinton was the main attraction of Tuesday night’s speaking lineup, but Fix Boss Chris Cillizza managed to pick some other winners and losers too.

They’re below, and there’s much more analysis on The Fix.


* Bill Clinton: Watching Bill Clinton give a high-profile address to a big crowd is watching someone who was born to do exactly what they are doing. Yes, the speech was looooong.  Yes, he went way off the teleprompter. A lot. But, he also managed to tell one of the most well-known stories — his life with Hillary — in an engaging, funny and, yes, sweet way.  Most importantly, the speech was almost entirely focused on his wife, not him — a remarkable thing for a) a former president and b) a former president named Bill Clinton.

DEMOCRACY: The Reaction to Brexit Is The Reason Brexit Happened – by Matt Taibbi

The Reaction to Brexit Is The Reason Brexit Happened

If you believe there’s such a thing as “too much democracy,” you probably don’t believe in democracy at all

Matt Taibbi

Matt Taibbi

– by Matt Taibbi – Rolling Stone

In 1934, at the dawn of the Stalinist Terror, the Great Russian writer Isaac Babel offered a daring quip at the International Writers Conference in Moscow:

“Everything is given to us by the party and the government. Only one right is taken away: the right to write badly.”

A onetime Soviet loyalist who was eventually shot as an enemy of the state, Babel was likely trying to say something profound: that the freedom to make mistakes is itself an essential component of freedom.    Continue reading
