JANUARY 16, 2013 · Stabroek News –  BY MANDY THOMPSON · COMMENTS

A massive clean-up was underway yesterday to remove huge amounts of garbage that accumulated along the East Coast of Demerara road between Kitty and Turkeyen, less than 24 hours after spring tides flooded the area.

The tides were fuelled by an Atlantic front, the Hydrometeorological Service of the Ministry of Agriculture said yesterday. Minister of Transport Robeson Benn had told reporters that the flooding was as a result of higher than usual spring tides, measuring 3.15 metres, and high waves striking the seawall between Turkeyen and Sheriff Street, which is “undergoing cyclical erosion.”    [read more]

The United States Debt Limit Explained – video

The United States Debt Limit Explained

Uploaded on Feb 26, 2011:  What’s happening as the congress raises the debt ceiling explained in a very easy to understand and short video. Congress will consider raising the debt ceiling on our borrowing streak for the 78th time in less than a hundred years and as the debt goes up so does the interest on the debt.

No one in their right mind would do this, but Congress does because it’s not their personal money or debt and it allows them to continue to spend and remain in power.

Update: This video was made before the debt ceiling was raised two years ago. The USA debt ceiling is scheduled to rise again soon for the 79th time.
