Where are the Elders? Our young people need them – By Yvonne Sam

Where are the Elders? Our young people need them
– By Yvonne Sam

I have always been one who strives to speak the truth as it is and not refer to a spade as a garden tool rather than by its correct nomenclature a spade.

I know for a fact that the statements that follow may be a hard pill to swallow but then again pill taking is always a start to situational or conditional remediation. Looking at the recent spate of heinous crimes being committed by young people in Guyana I cannot help but join in the journey towards an answer. Our young people are in desperate need of leadership and for the elders to display guidance in order to navigate through life as it exists in present day Guyana.      Continue reading

To the extent that the Country’s Constitution was constructed on the platform of democracy…a concept referenced throughout its preamble, its body and its amendments …it is understood that there would be term limits to governance; otherwise Guyana would be a Dictatorship.

And in Guyana, to talk Constitution without its correlation to the politics of race would be a conversation that is inherently hypocritical, since race stands at the crossroads of identity and socio – political structure with difference framing inequality.

The world celebrated the landing of Neil Armstrong on the moon on July 20, 1969,  a milestone for the human race, but the significance lay more in what it promised.

This was to be the dawning of a technological age in which the scientific achievement of putting a man on the moon 238,855 miles in the sky would launch an era in which human beings are freed from the drudgery of work and live lives of leisure and creativity.    Continue reading

The connection between sudden infant death, vaccines and vitamin C

Rangitikei Enviromental Health Watch

Naturalhealth365) Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is defined as the ‘unexplained death’ – usually during sleep – of an infant under a year old. And, although (conventionally speaking) many experts say the cause is ‘a combination of physical and sleep environmental factors,’ others blame this tragic event on the toxicity of vaccines.

The peak age for SIDS occurs at a time when infants are undergoing many vaccinations, giving rise to concerns that vaccines and SIDS may be linked. Of course – citing many studies – government health agencies deny this connection. But, there are still heartbreaking accounts that exist of SIDS occurring within hours or days of a vaccination.

As the controversy continues: cardiologist Thomas Levy, MD, JD points to vitamin C as a natural intervention that could potentially protect our children from a vaccine injury or premature death.

I’m finding it hard to stay abreast of all the upheaval triggered by our Twitter-in-Chief. His tweets and threats boggle my mind, create instability across our nation, and embolden our rivals and enemies overseas.

While our bombs turn the Middle East into rubble, people at the bottom rungs in America face their own hell. This month, the Institute for Policy Studies has published its empirical study, The Souls of Poor Folk, highlighting the complex issues that entangle our lives: systemic racism, persistent poverty, the war economy and militarism, and ecological devastation. Here are some of their key findings.

James Comey Is No Hero – Adam Serwer | The Atlantic

James Comey Is No Hero

The former FBI director has a low opinion of the president who fired him, but his disregard for Department of Justice rules helped put Trump in the White House to begin with.

Adam Serwer | The Atlantic

James Comey’s highly anticipated book, A Higher Loyalty, reportedly makes no secret of the disdain in which the former FBI director holds the president who fired him. Comey compares President Trump to a mob boss, calling him a liar living in a “cocoon of alternative reality” and a man who is “unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values.”     Continue reading
