Guyana: Adel’s Rainforest Resort: Discover a hidden paradise within the Pomeroon

Guyana is a tropical haven, filled with hidden gems in the nooks and crannies of the lush forested land. So when the busy city life gets too much; the noise, the crowds, the same old places, the familiar things, I would advise you to take a trip.

Head to the Charity wharf and board the speedboat. Sit and let the warm rays of the sun envelope you while splashes of the cool Pomeroon River hit your face.

Bask in the picturesque scenes as you glide across the water; how the greenery blends perfectly with the black tint of the river and the inviting smiles of the villagers who always raise their hands in a friendly wave. After 45 minutes, you’ll arrive.        Continue reading

Missing in Action—  Festive Shopping Manners – By Yvonne Sam

The absence of shopping manners especially during the festive season is truly calamitous.

The holiday season is already on us, and strangely enough large department stores, shopping malls and food courts, figuratively speaking are presenting dependable petri dishes for sociologists burrowing into or ferreting out the morass of human self-entitlement, self-absorption and self-centered behavior.        Continue reading

Britain’s Choice Is Socialism or Barbarism – Alan Minsky | TruthDig

Alan Minsky | TruthDig

I am an American with a partner from England and a daughter with dual United Kingdom-U.S. citizenship. For a Yankee, I follow British politics closely.

During the past few years, thanks to the Brexit mess, the Gordian entanglements of U.K. politics have been vertigo-inducing, to say the least. However, since U.S. politics are also in a constant red-hot crisis, I’ve been unable to follow the U.K. tragicomedy at the granular level.

Paradoxically, this has been helpful, per my understanding of U.K. politics. While I’ve missed out on innumerable headline-grabbing absurdities, my distance has allowed me to maintain perspective on the big picture — at least, that’s my sense.              Continue reading
