 By   Visual Capitalist

Costing between $4-8 trillion and affecting 65 countries, China’s ambitious One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative is the granddaddy of all megaprojects.

By the time of it’s estimated completion in 2049, OBOR will stretch from the edge of East Asia all the way to East Africa and Central Europe, and it will impact a lengthy list of countries that account for 62% of the world’s population and 40% of its economic output.

Today’s infographic from Raconteur helps visualize the initiative’s tremendous size, scale, and potential impact on Asian infrastructure.

“Your Body Is An Illusion” This Video Will Literally Blow Your Mind! – By Dr. Bruce Lipton

Dr. Bruce Lipton : “Your Body Is An Illusion” This Video Will Literally Blow Your Mind!

It was once thought that genes could turn themselves on and off, and in the process, they could control the character of our lives. This belief led to the conclusion that our fate was controlled by the genome we acquired from our mother and father at the moment of conception.

Unfortunately, if we do not like the traits we inherited, we cannot change our genes. When we combine these facts with the notion that genes control their own activity, we are left with the inescapable conclusion that we are “victims” of our heredity and should anticipate expressing the diseases and negative traits passed down through our family lineage.          Continue reading

“If we return [to The Bahamas], it is just to visit, not to work. It is really difficult to relive that experience,” father of three Orin Grimmond told reporters at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport last evening ( September 15, 2019).        Continue reading

Guyana Politics: I Stand with the Poor: A New Coalition Government must uplift them – Dr. David Hinds

 

This compartmentalisation has worked against a holistic discourse which in turn inhibits an overarching vision. It occurs both at the level of those who seek to influence government and those who actually govern. It is not that I am against single-issue advocacy, but what is lacking is the linkages between and among those issues—a relationship between the tree and the forest.            Continue reading

A Brief History of Bullshit: Why We Have Learned to Ignore Truth – by Eva Illouz | Haaretz

Lies no longer draw backlash or punishment. But truth remains the strongest weapon against the world of alternative facts propagated by Trump and Netanyahu

  Eva Illouz | Haaretz

If lying has become a widespread practice in public life, it is because it has gone unpunished, and more disturbingly, because it often seems to bear ripe and colorful fruits. It is enough for Benjamin Netanyahu to say that Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini engineered the Holocaust, or that Benny Gantz is a security risk to Israel to suddenly create doubt in the mind of the citizen, a doubt which in turn changes reality.

This is a unique historical moment, one that seems to reverse the most fundamental tenets of the Enlightenment, about the moral and political centrality of truth. Hence the question posed here:                 Continue reading

Guyana History: Clonbrook Beach –  By Geoff Burrowes

Clonbrook Beach –   By Geoff Burrowes

        There was an air of suppressed excitement all week- everybody felt it! Our mothers talked in hushed voices on their black bakelite home phones (that’s all there was in those days – no one had ever heard of a mobile or cell phone)!

        It was in the background of every game of chaser or cricket and our fathers topped the oil in their cars and made sure the tires were properly inflated.

        Our mothers made sure that there was an adequate supply of mauby, ginger beer, sorrel and pine drink in the earthernware jugs in the kitchen and the kitchen was filled with the sweet odours of fudge, cake and sugar cake, both pink and white and brown chipped coconut!        Continue reading

The Hard Facts about the Soft Truth

Although sexual health is essential to overall health and well-being, nevertheless there is a tendency for sexual-health needs to be overlooked in routine health care. It has been estimated that currently over 150 million men worldwide suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED) and by 2025, this figure will increase beyond 322 million.  https://www.researchgate.net/publication/316507803_Erectile_dysfunction_and_its_pharmacology_An_overview.
