Castration —- not the panacea for Sexual Healing of the Nation – By Yvonne Sam

– By Yvonne Sam

As the country prepares for election, the vote should hold the key to correction.

Permit me to respond to the impassioned plea of Hajji Dr. Roshan Khan, Chairman/Founder of RK’s Guyana Security Service in his article wherein he voiced his support for castration (chemical or surgical) as the deterrent for pedophilia.

Let us now fast backwards to an article that I wrote over two and a half years ago, on the selfsame issue, and calling for the selfsame mode of punishment.      Continue reading

“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

USA: Opioids overdose deaths … a manufactured tragedy – By Mohamed Hamaludin

Opioids overdose deaths a manufactured tragedy that has ensnared minorities and babies


Within about 20 years, more than 76 billion opioid pills or painkillers were sold in just six years in the U.S., manufacturers and distributors made billions of dollars – and at least 400,000 people died from overdosing.

The nearest comparable crisis is the havoc wreaked by tobacco. And, just as cigarette manufacturers lied about the health risks of their products while aggressively marketing them, so too opioids makers are accused of spreading misleading information about their drugs. Tobacco companies agreed to a $246 billion settlement and opioids manufacturers are paying out hundreds of millions of dollars – to begin with – to settle lawsuits    Continue reading

Medical: Erectile Dysfunction – Needing A Hand to Stand – By Yvonne Sam  

  By Yvonne Sam

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.

According to Gail Wyatt, sex therapist, clinical psychologist and professor at UCLA, roughly 18 million American men experience erectile dysfunction, or ED, defined as the inability to attain or sustain an erection for satisfactory sexual intercourse, and typically measured over a three-month period, and African men are more likely than men of other races to experience ED.          Continue reading

Medical: Plugged In: The True Toxicity of Social Media – Video

The Most Revolutionary Act

Plugged In: The True Toxicity of Social Media

Directed by Richard Grannon (2018)

Film Review

This documentary examines the apparent link between widespread social media addiction and the spike in suicide rates among teens under 17. Depression has increased 70% over the last decade, with suicide rates increasing by 50% in girls and 30% in boys. In the same period, hospital admissions for eating disorders have doubled. This appears to relate to pervasive social media emphasis on personal appearance and staying thin.

The filmmakers interview pediatricians, psychologists, social media activists and teen victims of cyberbullying. They also examine whistleblower claims about Facebook deliberately designing platforms to produce the same dopamine* triggers that mediate addiction. The obvious goal is to create compulsive desire to spend more and more on Facebook, as well as Instagram and WhatsApp (both owned by Facebook). The more time you spend on Facebook, the more ads you…

To My Merciless, Brutal Period: It Is Time You and I Talked- Emma Barnett | The Guardian UK

You got me out of swimming at school, and gifted me my son, but truly,
I won’t miss you when you’re gone

Emma Barnett | The Guardian UK – An Education for Men:

I am standing in a draughty, picturesque church on an icy Saturday in December, wearing four-inch gold glittery heels and silently cursing you as you churn up my insides without a thought for the occasion. Try as I might to focus on my friend, the gleamingly beautiful bride, and stand stoic during the hymns she’s painstakingly chosen for us to chorus, all I can think is: Will you please fuck off? And when can I rip off this fascinator, my heels, dress, tights and, while I’m at it, my skin? The need for delicious wedding champagne to dull your grip is getting increasingly urgent.       

Yeah, I’m talking to you. My pushy, aggressive, attention-seeking per  period. The very same period that has no sense of timing or mercy. OK fine, due to the wonder of the pill you do arrive on time, mostly. But you pay no heed to how you transform me from a fast-walking, talking vibrant being into a husk who craves warmth, trousers that have lost their elastic, and copious amounts of fat chippy chips doused in vinegar.

Guyana-born Chemist and Ethno-botanist – Conrad Gorinsky – Dead at 83

An Ethno-botanist Who Wanted to Save the Amazon But was Accused of Biopiracy

Dr. Conrad Gorinsky

Obituary | The Times

Conrad Gorinsky was born in Parubaru, near the Kuyuwini river, in British Guiana on March 7, 1936. He died of pneumonia after being treated for nasal cancer on August 18, 2019 at age 83 

As a young woman lay dying after being bitten by a venomous sea snake in Papua New Guinea, Conrad Gorinsky bemused his fellow explorers by smearing her swollen leg with mashed mango.

A world authority on the medicinal properties of tropical plants, whose reputation was later tarnished by allegations of “biopiracy”, Gorinsky was familiar with the ancient treatment for snake bites used by the indigenous people. The girl made a full recovery.            Continue reading

Black Canadians Not Benefiting From The Business Of Cannabis – By Yvonne Sam

By Yvonne Sam- Contributing Writer – PRIDE NEWS

Yvonne Sam -- newCANADA, August 28, 2019 — Unparalleled, even by the Klondike Gold Rush of 1896, is the 2019 booming Canadian cannabis industry. June 2018 saw the Cannabis Act (C45) paving the way for the legalization of cannabis on October 17, 2018.

Presently, in all Canadian jurisdictions, police and prosecution services are capable of pursuing criminal charges for cannabis marketing without a license, issued by Health Canada.

Nevertheless, as a general election looms on the horizon, I believe that Canadians, especially Blacks, are missing out on a vital and critical conversation — a conversation involving opinion and perspective, on the use and business of marijuana.
