What is Truth? What is Real? — katharineotto – Blog post by Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision

We live in challenging times, bombarded with information from all sides. Our reality can conflict with the “truth” disseminated by our leaders: government, scientific, business, religious, and familial. Fellow blogger Katharine Otto grapples with this dilemma, opening up pathways for our own meanderings in discerning the truth.

Information. Misinformation. Disinformation. News. Fake News. Opinion. Generalization. Prediction. Propaganda. Lies. Advertising. Gossip. Second guesses. Stereotypes. Assumptions. I feel overwhelmed by the glut of demands on attention and allegiance. What to believe? What not to believe? To believe everything and nothing at the same time? To trust my own judgment or to doubt? I long […]

24 Classic Vintage Motor Cars – photos
If you’ve ever felt that your car is too old, and you wish you had a newer one, then perhaps you haven’t had a good look at these vintage motors. These cars start from the very first official automobile in the 19th Century, and proceed into the 20th. Looking at these, it’s hard not to appreciate the workmanship and class that went into the first motor vehicles. They were, after all, the height of technology at the time:

GUYANA CAUGHT IN THE CHINA TRAP – By Verian Mentis-Barker

GUYANA CAUGHT IN THE CHINA TRAP

Back then it was Red China.    Beijing was Peking.

Its ambitions were cocooning with sights set on the Western Hemisphere.

Now, some serendipity.

British Guiana becomes independent in 1966.

Then Chinese Premier Chou En-lai cabled then Prime Minister Forbes Burnham that he hoped “the people of your country achieve new success in the struggle to safeguard national independence and oppose colonialism and neocolonialism”….and instructed the Chinese press to emblazon its pages with a salute to Guyana and its people, welcoming them to the world of political freedom.   ………………    Six years went by.

1972.

Prime Minister Burnham ascended to President and was struggling to legitimize his Presidency and the Cooperative Socialism ideology he had adopted.  His political swing to the left cost him favor with the West and as punishment, the country lost volume in the export market.

MAHATMA GANDHI ‘S INFLUENCE IN GUYANA – by Ramnarine Sahadeo

MAHATMA’S INFLUENCE IN GUYANA

by Ramnarine Sahadeo

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Wikipedia

Mohandas K. Gandhi

Born: October 2, 1869, Porbandar, IndiaAssassinated: January 30, 1948, New Delhi, India.

Mohandas K. Gandhi was born in Asia, educated in Europe, and matured in Africa but never touched the soil of the Americas yet his influence was global and it would be a dim perception to conclude that his life and message was restricted to a few continents.

His impression on the USA is indelible. President Barack Obama stated in India in 2010 that he would not have been President had it not been for Gandhi and the message he shared with America and the rest of the world.

Martin Luther King who also lived and learnt in India stated in 1955 “Christ gave us the goals…Gandhi gave us the tactics…he influenced my life in terms of action more than anybody”. Cesar Chavez used non-violence strategy to protest the exploitation of California farm workers and showed patience when he stated the rich have money but we have time.      Continue reading

GUYANA: COUNTRY FIRST – By Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo

COUNTRY FIRST

OCTOBER 3 will mark 118 years of the Tribunal Award on the boundary between Guyana and Venezuela. The Award is binding under an international Treaty “as a full, perfect and final settlement of all the questions referred to the Arbitrators.”

The Arbitration Tribunal was appointed to determine the boundary-line between the then colony of British Guiana and the United States of Venezuela. It comprised five eminent international jurists.

One of the issues they had to examine was which country occupied what portion of land, undisturbed and exclusively, over many years. The Treaty refers to this criterion as “adverse holding or title by prescription.” The findings were binding on all parties.    Read more
