Jayawardene: Controlled West Indies deserved win

Samuel Badree sticks out in this West Indies team. He has a neat little side parting. He does not have rippling muscles. He celebrates a wicket almost out of courtesy. And all of his wickets tonight in Bangalore came as a result of his inviting the batsmen to make a mistake. Sri Lanka rsvp-ed like crazy. Badree’s 3 for 12 laid the foundation to a comfortable victory over the defending champions. Continue reading

AMERICA IN CRISIS – By Leslie S. Chin

AMERICA IN CRISIS – By Leslie S. Chin, M.Sc., P.Eng.

Synopsis

The United States of America was founded on the basis of unity, liberty and equality. These principles were compromised from the beginning because the US was a slave owning nation and discrimination persists to this day. The US proceeded to occupy and seize lands from the indigenous peoples, nevertheless the country expanded through a series of wars and purchases and prospered to occupy the southern portion of the North American continent. America continues to advance through home grown and imported technologies and ideas.

Donald Trump asserts that America has lost its lustre and he will make America great again.America has always taken an opportunistic approach to foreign affairs. They will take advantage of an opportunity to gain territory without actively pursuing empire. America usually adopts an arm’s length approach to world affairs.  Continue reading

Many observers, including the government and the opposition PPP, framed the recent Local Government Elections (LGE) as a referendum on the APNU+AFC Coalition’s performance in government. In many respects it is a characterization that’s difficult to avoid. Coming mere months after a bitterly fought general election which resulted in a razor thin win for the Coalition, both the government and the opposition wanted that characterization for different reasons.

It was hoped that a good showing by the governing coalition would give it much needed confidence that its stewardship is on track and that it enjoys the validation, at least, of its constituency. For the opposition PPP, a good performance would satisfy the party that its loss of the general election represents a temporary setback and that its constituency continues to reject the Coalition.    Continue reading
