Profile: The late Romesh Singh – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Profile: Romesh Singh -Engineer, Activist and Teacher

Romesh Singh, also known as Romesh Chandra Dutt was a person of many interests. He built radios and radars, set up communication links that brought the world closer and never lost sight of the fact that ordinary people matter. Romesh was one of the foremost telecommunications engineers of his generation that designed complex systems.

He was unassuming but firm in his convictions, and above all, he had an abiding love for his homeland, Guyana.

When you were with Romesh you knew that he stood for what was right. He did not play around with words, or said one thing and meant something else. Romesh was the genuine article, a scholar with varied interests, outspoken in his views, and always giving of his best to the community.

Legal Marijuana in Canada

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Oct. 12, 2018: As per usual, most Caribbean governments are lagging behind the 8th ball when it comes to the multi-billion-dollar industry of marijuana – a herb that easily grown in the region and has for many decades now.

The snail like movement in some nations and the non-movement in most others, come as Vivien Azer, the only pot analyst from a major Wall Street research house, claimed this week that that the market could be one day worth $500 billion.     Continue reading

Prejudice Will Never Be A Thing of The Past – Matthew Parris | The Times UK

Prejudice Will Never Be A Thing of The Past

Matthew Parris | The Times UK

We look back appalled at racial attitudes of the 1970s but maybe treatment of trans people is our generation’s blind spot

Guess when this was written: 1930, 1950, 1960 . . . when?

“Because we fall backwards to fill our posts by fair and open competition, we can only assume that, since the ethnic minority groups do not fare as well in our competitions as do people of European descent, the ethnic minority groups do not possess the qualities which we require, on average, to as high a degree as their British-born counterparts.”

And guess who wrote this memo. Some BNP racist thug, or publicity-seeking shock-columnist looking for a fight?               Continue reading

The truth is that Trump has a point about globalization – By Larry Elliott – The Guardian

The truth is that Trump has a point about globalisation

By Larry Elliott – Wed 26 Sep 2018  – The Guardian

The president’s belief that the nation state can cure economic ills is not without merit

Once every three years the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank hold their annual meetings out of town. Instead of schlepping over to Washington, the gathering of finance ministers and central bank governors is hosted by a member state. Ever since the 2000 meeting in Prague was besieged by anti-globalisation rioters, the away fixtures have tended to be held in places that are hard to get to or where the regime tends to take a dim view of protest: Singapore, Turkey, Peru.     Continue reading
