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

Indentured Indians Brought a Hidden Cosmic message- By Veda NathMohabir

Indentured Indians Brought a Hidden Cosmic message.

 Brief retrospective on early Indian Indentureship

 The month of May is the anniversary for the arrival of East Indians in the Caribbean region and the Guianas – British Guiana, Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, the Windward Islands, St. Croix (Danish) and Guadeloupe and Martinique (French) – Belize, Dutch Guiana and French Guiana.They first arrived in British Guiana, on May 5, 1838 as an experiment to replace African slave labour after emancipation. Between 1838 to 1917 over one-half million (543,218) of indentured labourers from India, pejoratively called “Bound Coolies”, would arrive in the region.

Social and economic conditions in India were drivers to emigrate. Significantly, as well, famines engineered by the colonial government in India for the sake of profit: by switching cultivation from food production to Indigo and Poppy and other cash crops for export; and punishing high taxes (called tributes), as high as 50% of the peasants’ crops, resulted in less food production to feed the population. Untimely monsoon rains, hence drought, exacerbated the already reduced food production.

GUYANA: NATIONAL PRIDE – Commentary

NATIONAL PRIDE

Opinion - commentary -analysisFifty years ago, today, Guyana broke free from the Monarchy to chart its own destiny. There was no golden handshake as has been the case with countries like Suriname that gained its independence from Holland. Instead, Guyana was pretty much left to work with the systems left in place by the colonial rulers.

It is not that these systems were all bad. For example, we continue to maintain the judicial system that allows for a preliminary inquiry ahead of an indictable charge. There are still the public service, the police force and the postal service which, until the advent of improved technology, remained the main link between families and friends.   Continue reading
