CULTURE: 18 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Grew Up In A Caribbean Household

Some people hoard books, Caribbean people hoard plastic bags. 

Ivy Richardson | BuzzFeed —-  A view from Jamaicans in the U.K. 

  1. Ginger and Lemon Tea Solves Everything. 

I can’t explain it but this beverage really is a cure for all. Sore throat? Ginger and lemon tea. Indigestion? Ginger and lemon tea. Broken ankle? You guessed – ginger and lemon tea. God knows the science behind it but the proof is in the pudding.

  1. No Party Is Ever Complete Without Wray And Nephew Rum. 

What do all Caribbean parties have in common? Good people, good music, good food, and Jamaica’s Wray and Nephew rum. There aren’t many things you can guarantee in this life, by Wray and Nephew making an appearance at a Caribbean get together is certainly one of them. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.            Continue reading

GUYANA Politics: That “Bloated” Electoral List – by Ralph Ramkarran 

  – Conversation Tree Blog 

In 2010 I wrote an article on the overseas vote in which I argued that the Constitution of Guyana permitted all Guyanese citizens over the age of 18 to vote. Since there was no residence stipulation, Guyanese residing overseas have a right to vote. As readers would imagine, it elicited some controversy. I was a member of the leadership of the PPP at that time.

Mr. Robert Corbin, then leader of the PNCR, in a masterful display of irony, accused the PPP of seeking to re-introduce the overseas vote which, incidentally, the PNC had facilitated and grossly manipulated in the 1968 elections so much so that voters were registered as residing at the address of a horse pasture in the UK.        Continue reading

CRIME: The growing gun culture in Guyana – by Francis Quamina Farrier 

The recent extrajudicial killing of a young man on Main Street in the vicinity of the Palm Court establishment in Georgetown, poses the question as to whether extrajudicial killings are about to return to Guyana. “Perish the thought” someone said in my hearing. That recent killing also poses the question as to whether there is a growing gun culture in our Beautiful Guyana.
.
Responding to that street killing, Minister of Home Affairs, Robeson Benn, has stated that, “The Government is working to eradicate lawlessness and gun crimes.” The minister further stated that “Billions of dollars are being spent to bolster the country’s crime fighting capability.” Supportive of that over-due project, is the rehabilitation of quite a number of Police stations around the country. They include the stations at Albion, Providence, Ruimveldt, Whim and Wismar, among others.

OPINION: Colin Ming – “A Shining Light” – By Dave Martins

A SHINING LIFE – By Dave Martins

Two days ago, out of the blue, I had an awful experience with the sudden death of a friend here, Colin Ming, in a traffic accident (he was on a motorbike) that just shattered me.  Why I’m not really sure. We were not boyhood companions, but perhaps because our friendship goes back to those times, many years ago, when the Tradewinds trips to Guyana began, and my career as a musician was building, and Colin’s love for the songs was a kind of glue, always there between us as is our love for Guyana.            Continue reading

April 12, 2021 – KINGSTOWN, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines,  (Reuters) – Hot flows of ash, rock fragments and gas tore down the flanks of the La Soufriere volcano on the tiny Caribbean island of Saint Vincent today after its most powerful explosion yet, four days after it first started erupting.

La Soufriere erupted back into life on Friday after decades of inactivity, pumping dark clouds of ash some 10 km (6 miles) into the air and prompting an evacuation by sea and land of thousands of nearby residents.

USA Politics: Republicans Made A Foolish Bet On The Biden Agenda – Opinion

 Jennifer Rubin | The Washington Post

THE ECONOMY LOOKS READY TO TAKE OFF IN A WAY WE HAVE NOT SEEN FOR 30 YEARS. The International Monetary Fund predicts that the U.S. economy “will surpass its pre-pandemic size as growth reaches 6.4% this year …. up 1.3 percentage points from the group’s forecast in January,” CNN reported.

The IMF predicts the $1.9 trillion rescue plan will “deliver a strong boost to growth in the United States in 2021 and provide sizable positive spillovers to trading partners,” and, as a result, the “recession is likely to leave smaller scars than the 2008 global financial crisis.”        Continue reading
