BUSINESS: DEAD MALL – Full Walkthrough of Sunrise Mall (Creepy) – Massapequa NY

BUSINESS: DEAD MALL – Full Walkthrough of Sunrise Mall (Creepy) – Massapequa NY (Est 1973)

The year 2023 will see a number of malls closing permanently. This Sunrise Mall closes on December 31, 2022. It is located in Long Island NY.

This is because of changing shopping patterns and the rise of on-line shopping plus competition from newer malls. However, the most destructive has been the over-supply of shopping options and changing demographics.

This video gives an example of the “Death of The Mall”  — especially speeded up as large department stores (anchor stores) close. I am sure that it will remind you of the older malls in your town or city.

CLIMATE CHANGE: COP27- Responding to geopolitical change | By David Jessop

Recently, COP27, the twenty-seventh UN conference on climate change, ended.

Seen from a Caribbean perspective, the primary objective was to deliver with other vulnerable nations an agreement on ‘loss and damage’ through the creation of a mechanism that could provide the financing required to recover from extreme weather events. It was also about ensuring a continuing global commitment to what had been agreed at COP26 in relation to reducing carbon emissions and support for adaptation.

In the end, some progress was made. Agreement was reached at the eleventh hour to establish a loss and damage fund, although who will pay, how much, and what the criteria will be for any nation to qualify are for future discussion.            Continue reading

USA: America’s Epidemic of Hate – Cynthia Miller-Idriss | Foreign Affairs

By Cynthia Miller-Idriss | Foreign AffairsUSA: America’s Epidemic of Hate – Cynthia Miller-Idriss | Foreign Affairs

The murder of seven parade attendees on July 4 in Highland Park, Illinois, was horrifying — and all too predictable. Over the past decade, there have been scores of mass killings across the United States. In 2012, a shooter murdered seven Sikh worshipers in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. In 2015, an assailant massacred nine Black people at a church in Charleston, South Carolina. An attacker killed 23 Walmart shoppers in 2019 in El Paso, Texas. And on May 24 of this year, a shooter killed 21 people in Uvalde, Texas.

These episodes have no single formula, but recent assailants typically share a similar set of toxic traits: A history of murderous fantasies, violent nihilism, self-harm, or suicidal ideation; withdrawal from friends and family; and streaks of cruelty expressed through the torture or killing of animals, the stalking or harassing of women, or threats of rape and other physical harm. Investigators are still learning about the Highland Park assailant and his motive, but they know that the 21-year-old alleged shooter had threatened to kill his family and commit suicide. Similarly, the man charged with murdering ten Black Americans in June 2022 at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, had threatened to commit a murder-suicide and had written about stabbing and beheading a cat.            Continue reading

Russia-Ukraine War: Update on the latest developments – July 11. 2022

Russia-Ukraine War: Unable To Even Fix Its Own Tanks, Russia’s Humiliation Is Now Complete – Opinion

Putin’s bid to take over industry propels the country back to the command economy of its Soviet past

Ben Marlow | The Telegraph

The simplistic take on events in eastern and southern Ukraine is that Russian troops have finally gained the advantage over their battle-weary, vastly outgunned opposite numbers.

The capture of Lysychansk, a key strategic city in the Luhansk region of the breakaway industrial Donbas republic by Russian forces suggests that Moscow has been able to grind down spirited resistance, western officials begrudgingly acknowledge.

On the other hand, Vladimir Putin is still a long way away from taking the whole of the Donbas, with half of the Donetsk area still under the control of tens of thousands of Ukrainian troops, and fighting in the east taking a heavy toll on his army.          Continue reading

In one week, five Guyanese died in Queens, New York City. It was a beautiful Friday morning when five friends boarded the Q41 bus. They were in a good mood, as their yearly exams were done. The start of the summer promised fun-filled activities. The friends stopped at Jamaica Bay, in Queens, New York.

It is an area that is known for its treacherous currents. According to reports, around midday, two friends, each aged 13, went into the water, near Broad Channel. They were dragged by a rip current deep into the channel and failed to make it to the shore.
