Happy New Year—- A return  to “normalcy” should not form part of our Vocabulary – By Yvonne Sam

OPINION – Happy New Year 2021 – By Yvonne Sam

In just a matter of hours the year 2021 will be upon us.

While many are looking forward to a brand New Year, we cannot help but regard it as the year when the past will not only be an integral part of the present, but also serve as a visceral reminder of how the unexpected can derail well-planned resolutions, produce stress and halt economic progress—thanks to Covid 19 that unrelenting life taker, and unassailable game changer.    Continue reading

The Future of Vaccines – The Corbett Report – December 23, 2020

CRICKET: West Indies Legends say: Cricket is the Glue! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

 The captain of the West Indies Test team is more powerful that many Presidents and Prime Ministers. The West Indies is the only place on the planet where eleven players are chosen from different countries to represent a nation. This creates its own problems and also has its advantages.

The nations became the nursery for future talents. In the old days, insularity and individualism were common themes in West Indies cricket. But a smart captain was able to bring out the best in the players and to instill in them the importance of playing for country.            Continue reading

Guyana Memories: Pomeroon Times – By Dave Martins

By

Guyana is such a vast and multi-dimensional kind of country that one could a write a column about the different aspects of the place, every week for a year, and still not cover it all.  One such slant for me would definitely be the Pomeroon River, where I spent many August holidays when I was a student at Saint Stanislaus College on a scholarship, while the Martins family was living at Vreed-en-Hoop.

My father, Joseph Francis Martins, son of an immigrant family from Madeira, had two farms in the Pomeroon: one at Martindale, about 2 miles from Charity, and one, directly across the river from it, at Cozier.  JFM, a hard-working gentleman, also had a Government contract to clear vegetation from several of the small creeks draining into the big river, and I went with him as a teenager on some of those trips, including one, way upriver, near where the Pickersgill sawmill was located – I have written about that previously.      Continue reading

MEDICAL: Similarity versus Reality—- The Bilibid Prison Vaccination Saga – By Yvonne Sam

 By Yvonne Sam

An unethical vaccine experiment that went horribly wrong but was swept under the rug

On November 18, 1906, Richard P. Strong, the Director of the Bureau of Laboratories at Bilibid Prison in the Philippines inoculated 24 inmates with a serum against cholera. Not only did the vaccines grant a relatively short period of immunity—a maximum of fourteen months, but was clearly indicated only when there was a clear threat of cholera to the patient.

For over two months there had been no cholera in the prison, and there was absolutely no reason to expect the disease to recur in the upcoming months. The inmates were not told what was inside the syringe, and those who resisted the injection were urged on by prison guards.    Continue reading
