COVID-19: Approval of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine could change Canada’s vaccination game – CBC News

Lauren Pelley  – CBC NEWS – March 5, 2021

A one-dose COVID-19 vaccine is now approved for use in Canada — and vaccine experts say the shot from Johnson & Johnson could give a major boost to countrywide vaccination efforts while offering a “real solution” to hasten the end of the pandemic..

The vaccine, made by a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is a non-replicating viral vector option and, unlike the three other vaccines previously approved for Canadian use, was tested during clinical trials as a single shot.      Continue reading

Entertainment: Getting Started in music – By: Dave Martins

It occurred to me recently, after a long, rambling conversation with a young musician hopeful, that unless one has gone down that road, you have no idea of how very difficult, I would even say daunting, that path is. There is no formula anywhere, no how-to-book on the process, partly because every musical journey is distinct and unique with the traumas and pitfalls that obtain only from that person’s set of circumstances or abilities. 

The path that Sparrow took in his emergence, for instance, when I hear him talk about them, are completely different from my own; my going to him or to Dennis DeSouza in Trinidad, who I got to know in the years after Tradewinds became popular, for advice on how to proceed with this problem or that, would have been no use because their obstacles or advantages were nothing whatsoever like my own.               Continue reading

SECURITY: Crime Rate by Country -2020 statistics – World Population Review

Editor’s Note: This report shows that Guyana is ranked 8th; Trinidad & Tobago 6th; and Jamaica 11th. Crime Index for Country 2020

Crime Rate by Country 2021 from 2020 statistics – World Population Review (Link here)

Crime rate is calculated by dividing the number of reported crimes by the total population, and then the result is multiplied by 100,000

The crime rates in each country. While there is no exact reason why crimes are committed, there are several factors attributed to high crime rates. High crime rates are seen in countries or areas with high poverty levels and low job availability. Strict police enforcement and severe sentences tend to reduce crime rates. There is a strong correlation between age and crime, with most crimes, especially violent crimes, being committed by those ages 20-30 years old.          Continue reading

USA – Two Nations Under God – commentary – by: The Economist

THE ECONOMIST | Nashville, Tennessee and Keller, Texas

“Who do people say I am?”      Continue reading

In memory of: Sydney Norman Abdool – 1927-2021 – By: Geoff Burrowes

– By: Geoff Burrowes

My brother in law Norman died on March 1. 2021, and in his passing we lost a great Guyanese Canadian.

I was blessed to marry into my boss’ family, the Sydney Abdools.

Norman was the eldest, then Marjorie Fredericks, Freddy, Beryl Fredericks and  many years after that, Barbara Magalee and my wife, Norma the baby of the family. When I got to know Norman he was tall and slim and elegant, a handsome man with a dry sense of humour which salted his view of life, often.    Continue reading
