VIEWPOINT: The World Economy No Longer Needs Russia

With alternative sources in place, Putin’s attempt at blackmailing Europe on energy has failed.

For much of the past year, and since his invasion of Ukraine last February, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been riding high on his supposed energy omnipotence, holding the global economy hostage to his whims. Since last summer, Putin has choked off natural gas supplies to Europe, hoping that Europeans, shivering and without heat during the winter, would turn on their leaders and make it politically infeasible to continue support for Ukraine.               Continue reading

Jan 15, 2023  – Kaieteur News – American oil giant, ExxonMobil Corporation, has put Guyana on notice that its fifth project in the Stabroek Block, set to develop over 1.3 billion barrels of oil, could affect the nation’s air quality.

UK-BRITAIN: What Brexit Did to Boris Johnson — And Britain – Opinion

The prime minister’s fake populism led to his undoing—and will keep haunting his country. 

By Anne Applebaum | The Atlantic

Not too long ago, I heard one of the leading Brexiteers describe his political philosophy in a room full of CEOs and senior politicians. He started by talking to this elite group about the great division between “elites” and “the people”, the victors and the victims of globalization, the haves and the have-nots of modernity. The longer he spoke, the more his words began to seem rote, remote, and stale. The energizing slogans of the Brexit campaign of 2016 sounded hollow and clich​​éd in 2022. 

PARTLY, this is because the slogans were NOT true. Boris Johnson was the standout example of this phenomenon:             Continue reading

BRITAIN: COLONIALISM: Home Office Tried To ‘sanitise’ Staff Education Module On Colonialism – The Guardian UK

Disagreements have led to delay in course rollout as civil servants think empire material ‘too controversial’

Amelia Gentleman | The Guardian UK

Civil servants have attempted to “sanitise” a Home Office teaching module on race, empire and colonialism, according to those involved in devising a mandatory course on British history for the department’s 36,000 employees.

Disagreements have led to a year-long delay in the rollout of the project, which was due to be launched in June 2021. Home Office civil servants are understood to be nervous that some of the proposed material addressing issues of race, colonialism and empire is “too controversial” and have urged academics to tone down some of the content.                    Continue reading

Marti Fernando De Souza, 39, Deputy Chief Education Officer with responsibility for Amerindian and Hinterland Education Development, is working to eliminate the disparity that exists in the education system between the hinterland and the coastland, create opportunities for trained and qualified teachers to teach, and to improve pass rates in examinations in hinterland areas.

At the end of 2020, the Ministry of Education (MoE) saw the need for someone who can relate to the hinterland and work on policies at the ministry level to bring the standard of education in the hinterland to a level that is on par with the coastland. As a result, the ministry created the post of DCEO for Amerindian and Hinterland Education Development and offered it to De Souza.
