WITH THE VALUE OF THE POUND DIPPING FOLLOWING BREXIT, BRITISH TRAVELLERS WILL HAVE TO SPEND MORE TO GO ON VACATION IN BARBADOS AND ANALYSTS SAY THIS WILL IMPACT UK TOURISTS NUMBERS.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Thursday July 21, 2016 – Just the idea of sitting on a sunny beach on Barbados is likely enough to warm any Brit’s heart. But with the cost of actually making the trip now more expensive for them, following a plunge in the value of the pound sterling on the heels of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave Europe, a dream may be all some can afford.    Continue reading

Police officers explain how they’re encouraged to act in racist ways

“When you put any type of numbers on a police officer to perform, we are going to go to the most vulnerable.”

These skeptics might want to know that even some police officers are admitting they have a problem. In a recent investigation, several New York City police officers clearly described the issue to WNBC in New York:      Continue reading

There is talk that Guyana is slipping backward; that young people are not getting jobs. The part of jobs for young people may be true, but it is not that the jobs are not there. There are young people who are intelligent and literate, but the problem is that they are choosy when it comes to certain jobs.

I had stated before that many years ago all people wanted to do was to get a toe in the door. Other jobs will come later. That is when people can change. That is what people do in the developed world. The stories are many about people starting in one area and later changing.  Continue reading

Why Brexit happened — and what to do next – TED video by Alexander Betts
 
We are embarrassingly unaware of how divided our societies are.
Brexit grew out of a deep, unexamined divide between those that fear globalization and those that embrace it, says social scientist Alexander Betts.
How do we now address that fear as well as growing disillusionment with the political establishment, while refusing to give in to xenophobia and nationalism?
Join Betts as he discusses four post-Brexit steps toward a more inclusive world.

THEY campaigned to Leave, and they were as good as their word. Three weeks on from their referendum triumph, the politicians who led the charge for Britain to quit the European Union have fallen by the wayside in the race to replace David Cameron as prime minister. This week the last of the prominent Leavers, Andrea Leadsom, withdrew her candidacy after a few days’ media scrutiny revealed her to be fantastically ill-prepared. The job of steering Britain towards the EU’s exit doors has thus fallen to the only candidate left in the race: Theresa May, who campaigned to Remain.   Continue reading

BREXIT - Britain and EuropeBritain: Shakespeare in Action
by Gwynne Dyer – 11 July 2016

    It’s a bit like a Shakespeare play – specifically the final scene of Hamlet, when almost all the play’s major characters die violently. And now we’re down to one. Her name is Theresa May.

    It has been barely three weeks since the United Kingdom (or at least, 52 percent of those who voted) chose to leave the European Union, but all the main Brexit leaders have already left the stage. The Conservative Party has always been notable for its ruthlessness, and leaders who threaten to split the party get short shrift.   Continue reading
