Russia and the U.S. have always been confrontational with one another, but lately the relationship has been very dangerous. These two powerful nations need to find a way to coexist.

No Drugs Please …We’re Guyanese! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

No Drugs Please …We’re Guyanese! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

A woman arriving at Kennedy International Airport in New York from Guyana was found with six bags of milk and custard powder that were filled with cocaine. Customs officials said they found 13 pounds of drugs in her luggage, with an estimated street value of $230,000

Guyanese have smuggled drugs in girdles, salt fish, underwear, shrimps, bangamary, curry and rice, sneakers, custard powder, rum bottles, scrap metal, soup, flour, baking powder, chowmein, snapper, cricket bats, wigs, false bottom of shoes, lumber, rice, body orifices, and wiri wiri peppers. Wiri wiri peppers? Why do they have to mess with these little red balls of flavor?

My Poetry Corner November 2015 features the poem “Common Poem” (Poema Comum) by contemporary Brazilian poet Graça Vilhena, professor of Classical Portuguese Literature in Teresina, capital of her home state of Piauí. Her poetry, simple in its expression, tells stories of ordinary people in their everyday lives.

In “Common Poem,” Graça Vilhena uses poetic sensibility to address prostitution – affecting the most vulnerable, destitute children and adolescents – in Piauí and across Brazil. The first stanza describes the young woman, the central character of her poem.
