Venezuela: Illicit Trade Represents 21% of Venezuela’s GDP: Is This Our Post-Oil Future?

Venezuela – Click to enlarge

Tony Frangie Mawad | Caracas Chronicles

 After calculating the current annual worth of drug, gold and gasoline trafficking and port smuggling in Venezuela, a study by the local chapter of the anti-corruption nonprofit Transparency International — with estimates from Ecoanalítica, a Venezuelan economic consulting firm — concluded that these illegal economies made up 21.74% of Venezuela’s GDP last year.

“This means they are more powerful than any other economic sector right now, including oil,” says Mercedes De Freitas, Transparencia Venezuela’s executive director. “And we are talking only about the size of four of these economies, the most important ones. THERE ARE OTHER ILLICIT TRADES: Certain types of food smuggling, diesel smuggling, cooking gas trafficking, human trafficking or timber trafficking, which could be important in some regions.”       Continue reading

GUYANA: Building Expo 2022: Six international hotels with more than 1000 rooms on display

 …at least 3 more eyeing Guyana market

 Jul 23, 2022- Kaieteur News – In determining whether their investment in Guyana would be positive, six international hotels, some of which have commenced developmental work here, conducted a major market study that resulted in the entities wanting to develop around 1000 hotel rooms to cash in on the increase of business being conducted in the country.

This is according to Go-Invest Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Peter Ramsaroop who informed this newspaper that six international hotels would be on display for Building Expo which opened at the National Stadium yesterday. Ramsaroop said that each hotel is bringing a different value to the market, since they are presenting different types of rooms, “to potential tourists, business executives, technicians that are coming in for the support of the industry.” Continue reading

GUYANA: Four Points by Sheraton in Houston fits into expansion of economic zone – President Ali

– Says project strategically aligned to Govt’s development goals

His Excellency Dr Irfaan Ali said that Four Points by SheratonMarriott Bonvoy to be constructed at Houston, along the new Eccles to Mandela Road link, is just one component of the rapid economic zone set to change the landscape of the country.

He noted that the hotel, which is being developed by Caribbean Green Building Inc., would be a “natural spin-off” for development and key to the growth and progression of the area.

He stated that the area would have a private sector industrial/commercial development to support the oil and gas sector, which would be a part of a huge commercial zone, an upscale housing development, a medical and technological zone, and a service hub.        Continue reading

His attack came as a new poll of Tory party members gave Truss a commanding lead in the race to become prime minister.

Tax and spending has become the key battleground in the hard-fought contest, with Sunak insisting that cutting taxes immediately, as Truss has promised, would risk exacerbating the cost of living crisis.          Continue reading

USA: America’s Epidemic of Hate – Cynthia Miller-Idriss | Foreign Affairs

By Cynthia Miller-Idriss | Foreign AffairsUSA: America’s Epidemic of Hate – Cynthia Miller-Idriss | Foreign Affairs

The murder of seven parade attendees on July 4 in Highland Park, Illinois, was horrifying — and all too predictable. Over the past decade, there have been scores of mass killings across the United States. In 2012, a shooter murdered seven Sikh worshipers in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. In 2015, an assailant massacred nine Black people at a church in Charleston, South Carolina. An attacker killed 23 Walmart shoppers in 2019 in El Paso, Texas. And on May 24 of this year, a shooter killed 21 people in Uvalde, Texas.

These episodes have no single formula, but recent assailants typically share a similar set of toxic traits: A history of murderous fantasies, violent nihilism, self-harm, or suicidal ideation; withdrawal from friends and family; and streaks of cruelty expressed through the torture or killing of animals, the stalking or harassing of women, or threats of rape and other physical harm. Investigators are still learning about the Highland Park assailant and his motive, but they know that the 21-year-old alleged shooter had threatened to kill his family and commit suicide. Similarly, the man charged with murdering ten Black Americans in June 2022 at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, had threatened to commit a murder-suicide and had written about stabbing and beheading a cat.            Continue reading

SCIENCE: ‘Bees are really highly intelligent’: the insect IQ tests causing a buzz among scientists

We all know these busy insects are good for crops and biodiversity, but proof is emerging that they are also clever, sentient and unique beings

They have been revered by the ancient Egyptians, lauded by Shakespeare, feared by Winnie-the-Pooh and, most recently, battled by Rowan Atkinson in the new Netflix hit Man vs Bee. But love or loathe them, you may be surprised to discover just how much bees know.

“We now have suggestive evidence that there is some level of conscious awareness in bees – that there is a sentience, that they have emotion-like states,” says Lars Chittka, professor of sensory and behavioural ecology at Queen Mary University of London.        Continue reading
