Automation and Robotics: Humans Need Not Apply – Video

Automation and Robotics: Humans Need Not Apply – Video

Comments: We’ll need to basically rethink our economy because capitalism won’t work in a world where most humans don’t need to work. Wow, this video is already 4 years old? It still feels so relevant. Definitely one of my favourites on YouTube.

Im extremely worried about the futures of young, aspiring children and teenagers who haven’t graduated yet, what will happen to their careers in a world where every job is done by bots? How will we survive if there isn’t demand for any job?

Criticism of Israel is not the same as criticism of Judaism – By Mohamed Hamaludin

New U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was denounced recently for comments deemed anti-Semitism, an ancient term that has come to be interpreted as hatred for Jews. Her tweets on Feb. 10 included it’s “all about the Benjamins baby,” a reference to the $100 bill with Benjamin Franklin’s image, which was taken to mean that the Jewish lobby had bought off members of Congress.

Omar, a Somali American Muslim, quickly apologized. But she stuck to her criticism of the influence of lobbyist money on politics, including from AIPAC — the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee. She was wrong because AIPAC does not make campaign contributions.      Continue reading

SPORTS: US Football: Kaepernick WON. The NFL LOST – Massively

It doesn’t matter how much he made from the settlement; he bested the league.

Eric Reid and Colin Kaepernick: “Taking the knee”

Jemele Hill | The Atlantic

Technically, Colin Kaepernick withdrew his collusion case. Technically, the NFL did not admit that it conspired to blackball Kaepernick from the league after he began taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. But non-technically speaking, THE NFL LOST – Massively.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. But it doesn’t matter how much money Kaepernick ultimately receives from the NFL; what matters is that he bested a league that has a long history of pummeling its opposition in court, especially players.   

In a way, the NFL had no other choice. Last August, arbitrator Stephen Burbank rejected the NFL’s request to have the case dismissed. Continue reading

As Maduro holds on, Venezuela opposition eyes negotiated transition

Stabroek News – 20 February 2019

Congress chief Juan Guaido (left) and President Nicolas Maduro

CARACAS,  (Reuters) – Venezuela’s opposition is trying to convince ruling Socialist Party officials to join a transition government, shifting focus as it seeks to unseat President Nicolas Maduro, who has clung to power in the face of growing international pressure and U.S. sanctions.

Last month, Venezuelan opposition leader and Congress chief Juan Guaido invoked the constitution to assume the interim presidency after declaring Maduro’s reelection in May 2018 illegitimate. He swiftly received recognition from the United States and Latin American powers.  Continue reading

HAPPY MASHRAMANI and Congratulations to the Good Mini Bus Operators–by Francis Quamina Farrier

Commentary: Guyana’s Mini Bus Operations

Mashramani Parade

Let me begin this feature Article by extending to you and yours, HAPPY MASHRAMANI, and hoping that the 49th Republic Anniversary of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana was a positive, happy and memorable one for you.

The hope, as well, is that MASHRAMANI will always be a grand celebration here in Guyana, and will never be de-emphasised or stymied by any other non-Guyanese event. MASH “Is We Own” and as patriotic Guyanese, we must do everything we can to “BIG Up” we MASH with pride and dignity as we sing along with Rudy Grant, “MASH in GUYANA”.

Georgetown- Parika Mini Bus

At this time, I’ve chosen to write this article which I consider to be of grave importance to the day-to-day running of our Beautiful Guyana at this time of our history; the mini bus operations.  Continue reading

Guyanese celebrate 49th Mashramani with pride and unity in NYC – By Tangerine Clark

Guyanese celebrate 49th Mashramani with pride and unity

One People, One Nation, with One Destiny, was the common thread that ran through a pulsating multicultural presentation of music, dance, drumming, and a parade of Guyana’s six races, to commemorate the nation’s 49th Mashramani under the auspices of Ambassador Rudolph M. Ten-Pow and Consul General of Guyana to New York, Barbara Atherly, who, called on expatriates to celebrate Guyana’s diversity with unity and pride.

In her welcome remarks to a packed audience in the DC1707 auditorium, in NYC last Friday (15 February 2019), Atherly recalled the festivity and jubilation that Guyanese enjoyed four years after independence, when Guyana became a Republic on Feb. 23, 1970, and encouraged nationals to delight in their rich cultural heritage, noting, ‘we are stronger together as a people, it is all about joy and celebrating our nationality, and looking into the future that is bright with everything that we hoped for.”          READ MORE

Music: HOW SONGS ARRIVE – by Dave Martins + 4 Videos

Dave Martins

HOW SONGS ARRIVE – by Dave Martins- Credits Stabroek News,

Over my 50-plus years in the business of popular music, I cannot count the times I have heard the question, “How do you come up with these songs? What’s the secret?” I heard it again, this week and, as before, the answer is that there is no formula involved, at least in my case, that I can pass on. I have mentioned some of the triggers in previous columns, but the short answer, overall, is that the source of songs is literally everything and anything.

Experiences you have, a lovely phrase you read or hear some place, an incident in the news, a love affair, a goodbye, the passing of someone, a joke (yes a joke; Ken Corsbie told me a joke after a show in Barbados in a gaff and that led to me writing “Cricket in the Jungle” see Video below); or some perception that gradually comes to you out of the blue, or bang, like a gunshot.     Continue reading
