Donald Trump is in trouble – A personal analysis – commentary

Donald Trump is in trouble – A personal analysis.

By Murfster35   –  Daily Kos

trumpDonald Trump is one of a kind. To quote the old phrase, he is “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma”. He burst onto the scene about 13 months ago, to widespread scorn, derision and laughter, and proceeded to steamroll his way through a field of 16 other candidates, which the conservative pundits called “the deepest GOP bench in a generation”. It wasn’t a fluke. He very specifically targeted and then manipulated his gullible audience with a well-orchestrated mantra of slogans, dog whistles and outright lies. And he made it work.   Continue reading

Dr. Ivelaw Griffith

In late 2016 the University of Guyana (UG) will award degrees for the fiftieth time since its founding. This should be a special occasion. Guyana celebrated with much fanfare its fiftieth anniversary as an independent nation in May 2016. Guyana and its University then are intertwined.  There is every reason as to why the health of the University should be high on the list of policymakers but this has not always been the case.

A fact-finding tour by Education Resource Ambassadors in June 2016 found a number of areas in which improvement is needed. The list emerged from students and staff.    Continue reading
