GUYANA PRESIDENTIAL THIRD TERM – By Verian Mentis-Barker

GUYANA PRESIDENTIAL THIRD TERM

By  Verian Mentis-Barker – -April 18, 2018 

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.

Dystopia – By Mohamed Hamaludin

Those who rule the world have created a hell on Earth for ordinary human beings

This column was first published in South Florida Times.

By MOHAMED Hamaludin

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

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.

Kids are Born Creative Geniuses Until the Education System Destroys Imagination + video

OUR GREATER DESTINY

“Find the 5-year-old,” in yourself!”

A landmark study shows how most people are born brilliant and lose their abilities to think like a genius over time in the educational system.

Dr. George Land and Beth Jarman were commissioned by NASA to help the space agency identify and develop creative talent. The two were tasked to research school children in an attempt to identify creative individuals from which the agency could pick to help with their many products. In a recent TED talk, Land described his team’s surprising findings on the education system which are nothing short of shocking.

It seems American schoolchildren lose their ability to think creatively over time. As students enter their educational journey, they retain most of their abilities to think creatively. In other words, children are born with creative genius. Employing a longitudinal study model, Land and Jarman studied 1,600 children at ages…
