MORE DEATHS DUE TO STRAY ANIMALS – by Francis Quamina Farrier

MORE DEATHS DUE TO STRAY ANIMALS – by Francis Quamina Farrier

Three Guyanese who today, should have been alive and well, and continuing to make their contributions to this our Native Land Guyana, in this Jubilee Year, are now DEAD; recent victims of three separate Traffic Crashes just a few days apart. DEAD are Deodat Singh, Richard Rammarace and Ramesh Singh. The similarity of their untimely demise, is that all three lost their lives on the Corentyne Coast Public Road, while in vehicles which crashed into stray horses.

The problem of stray animals roaming unfettered on public streets and roads all across Guyana, has been around in this country for many years, and it seems not to be addressed in a permanent way, by those in charge of public roadways. Many human lives have been lost in Traffic Crashes brought about by stray animals, and to the best of my knowledge, not a single owner of the offending animals, has been made to face the consequence of the death of someone, due to the carelessness they have displayed in the control of their animals.     Continue reading

Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution in this Exponential Age – by Udo Gollub

 I just went to the Singularity University Summit and here are the key learnings.

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.
Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they got bankrupt.
What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 year – and most people don’t see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on paper film again?
Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Welcome to the Exponential Age.   Continue reading
