U.S: Florida attorney general out of step with voters on gun safety – By Mohamed Hamaludin

  By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

Mass shootings in America have become so commonplace that gun violence did not feature during the two recent Democratic presidential debates. But whenever such tragedies strike, as happened last week in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, they become the flavor of the day, though they should not be unexpected, given the level of divisiveness in the country created and stoked by President Donald Trump’s racist immigration policy and inflammatory remarks about non-whites.

The latest massacres came as a Florida official seeks to frustrate a citizen initiative to ban assault weapons and a judge has struck down the Legislature’s draconian law criminalizing any action by local authorities to regulate gun ownership.          Continue reading

As the carnage continues—American is running out of reasons – By Yvonne Sam

  By Yvonne Sam

The truth America can no longer shun- her undying affinity with the gun.

Reasons range from untreated madness to sheer badness, as once more America is thrown into a state of mourning— a condition that she has found herself in more often than she cares to recall due to the regularity. The latest mass shooting in El Paso,Texas and Dayton, Ohio is in no way an anomaly, just history repeating itself.

America is running out of excuses, while the murderers are gaining easier access to weapons. The truth be told the problem is dire. Each new event brings with a demand for new laws and regulations.            Continue reading

Hydro Energy: Islamic Bank mission in Guyana to finalize energy projects

GEA CEO – Dr Mahender Sharma

GEORGETOWN, Guyana – A team of six officials from the Islamic Development Bank led by Noureddine Mabrouk arrived in Guyana to scope renewable energy projects for off-grid area in partnership with the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA). 

In April of this year, chief executive officer (CEO) of the GEA, Dr Mahender Sharma, said that  Guyana will approach the Islamic Development Bank to finance three additional hydro-powered sites – Ikuribisi hydro which will serve Bartica, Moco Moco and Kumu to benefit disadvantaged indigenous communities in the interior of the country.          Continue reading

BREXIT and falling Sterling will affect Barbados Tourism – Adrian Loveridge

  By Adrian Loveridge

The ongoing Brexit debacle has produced a new British Prime Minister and cabinet, seemingly intent on mimicking the Disney created urban legend documentary, depicting a lemming-like suicide by leaving the European Union on 31st October 2019, regardless of the cost to its own population and the inevitable effect it will have on both domestic and overseas tourism.

By now I would imagine that our tourism industry policymakers and planners have gone into ‘hyperdrive’ while attempting to fully evaluate the potential damage which resulted in further downward pressure on Sterling against the US$ (last week a 28 month low), together with the consequential repercussion it will have on the cost of living for most UK residents and their ability to absorb massive increases in holiday prices with depleted disposable income.              Continue reading
