HEALTH: Sunlight linked with lower COVID-19 deaths- study shows

(University of Edinburgh) – Sunnier areas are associated with fewer deaths from COVID-19, an observational study suggests.

Increased exposure to the sun’s rays – specifically UVA rays– could act as a simple public health intervention if further research establishes it causes a reduction in mortality rates, experts say.

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh compared all recorded deaths from COVID-19 in the continental US from January to April 2020 with UV levels for 2,474 US counties for the same time period.        Continue reading

 – by Francis Quamina Farrier

On March 27, Nations around the world, observed “World Theatre Day.” This annual event was established in 1962 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI) and supported by UNESCO. In this article, I am pleased to throw the spotlight on veteran Guyanese dramatist Ken Corsbie, who has been in the theatre arts for over seven decades.

Now in his early 90s, Ken Corsbie has been a member of the Theatre Guild of Guyana from its inception. However, his initial activities with theatre arts actually began at the Taitt’s Yard, now known as Cara Lodge on Quamina Street, previously Murray Street.        Continue reading

GUYANA: Extraordinary People – Rohan Kanhai and Jock Campbell – By Ian McDonald

Such men as these walk onto a field of play, or enter a room, and their life-force brings everyone to silence and attention – these were two men who in their very different ways set my mind alight.

ROHAN KANHAI

● The cover driving came from the same place as a Carter poem or an Aubrey Williams vision of an ancient land. His batting represented for me a very good reason why sport is as important as art. I remember my first sight of Rohan Kanhai batting at Bourda in 1956. I wrote that night to my father in Trinidad that I had just been witness to a wonder, the best batsman in the world.    Continue reading

BANANAS- A great natural food with many benefits

A banana really is a natural remedy for many ills.

When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.  It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around so maybe it’s time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A banana a day keeps the doctor away!’

In the US, the first two available Covid-19 vaccines were the ones from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna. Both vaccines have very high “efficacy rates,” of around 95%. But the third vaccine introduced in the US, from Johnson & Johnson, has a considerably lower efficacy rate: just 66%.        Continue reading

U.S.A: Spa mass shooting puts spotlight on anti-Asian bigotry — By Mohamed Hamaludin

While investigators try to unravel the motive behind the mass killing at three Georgia massage parlors/spas, this much is clear: The nation has not been paying nearly enough attention to the racist attacks against Asian Americans.

It took the killing of six Asian American women – and two others — at the spas to spark national outrage, the killer’s motive notwithstanding. And the full picture finally emerged. Stop AAPI Hate, an advocacy group for Asian American and Pacific Islanders, said it received more than 3,750 anti-Asian hate crime reports since the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic started early last year. News reports drew a direct link to then President Donald Trump’s penchant for referring to the virus as “China virus,” “Wuhan virus” and “Kung Flu,” most likely sparking the attacks.      Continue reading
