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.

USA: Birthday greetings from one July Fourth-er to another: May you find peace and happiness – By Mohamed Hamaludin

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

Probably 60 years ago, after graduating from high school in my native Guyana and became a teacher, I considered emigrating. I do not recall why I set my sights on the United States of America. It was probably because of what I had seen in movies. I started the process by trying to go to a college, probably Rutgers in New Jersey because, if I remember right, the name looked impressive. If that sounds naïve, the reason I gave for applying may seem even more laughable. I was born on the Fourth of July, as was the United States, and I mentioned that coincidence in my application.

I never followed up, though, probably because I may not have been serious and, anyhow, there was no pressing need for me to emigrate. Perhaps it was because, in those days, the focus was more on Britain, Guyana’s colonial power until 1966. The country of Stratford-upon-Avon seemed to be a better place, no doubt because of Guyana’s British-oriented education system, than the American West populated by cowboys and “Indians.” Indeed, it was more appealing to me than Guyana’s hinterland with its majestic Kaieteur Fall, which, at 741 feet, has the sheerest drop of all such natural wonders – and which I still have not visited.        Continue reading

USA: New York:  Tragedy in Little Guyana – By: Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

     By Dhanpaul Narine

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. Daniel Persaud and Ryan Wong were rushed to the hospital and were pronounced dead.        Continue reading

USA: Gun makers exploit vulnerable youths to market their deadly wares – By Mohamed Hamaludin

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

Only two of 30 mass shootings recorded between 1949 to 2017 were committed by killers younger than 21 — in Columbine, Colorado, in 1999 and Sandy Hook in Connecticut in 2012. Prior to 2000, most of the killers were men in their mid-20s, 30s and 40s but since then they have been between 15 and 25. And the nine deadliest mass shootings since 2018 were committed by mass killers 21 years old or younger, including an 18-year-old who killed 10 African Americans and wounded three other people at the Tops Friendly Markets store in Buffalo, New York, on May 14.

They are in the age range which “law enforcement officials, researchers and policy experts consider a hazardous crossroads for young men, a period when they are in the throes of developmental changes and societal pressures that can turn them toward violence in general, and, in the rarest cases, mass shootings,” The New York Times reported.      Continue reading
