VIDEO: Old Georgetown in British Guiana – now Guyana

Opinion: Punjab Avenue and the Guyanese community in Queens. New York – By: Dhanpaul Narine

 — By: Dhanpaul Narine

If, from the public steps, you make your way onto Liberty Avenue and Lefferts Boulevard, you might ask, “You will realize that there is nowhere is the sign that says Little Guyana?”  sign, and there are good reasons for it. Guyanese are politically sleepy. Most of them are interested in Guyana affairs, rather than in local politics. How many can name their congressman or senators in Washington? Guyanese children form a large percentage of the school population in Richmond Hill, but only a handful of parents bother to attend the open school meetings. They patronize other business, rather than their own, and don’t get them started about Jagan and Burnham!

By Gord Wilson – November 8, 2020

Six years after giving up its stake in the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana where operator ExxonMobil went on to make the first world class Liza discovery just months later, Shell is now looking to strike it big on the ‘Golden Lane of Oil’ where it is set to begin exploration activities in Suriname, just miles away from the prolific Stabroek block.

US Elections: Donald Trump deserves a second term – Opinion by Scott Jennings – CNN

  – Opinion by Scott Jennings – CNN

Editor’s Note: Scott Jennings, a CNN contributor and Republican campaign adviser, is a former special assistant to President George W. Bush and a former campaign adviser to Sen. Mitch McConnell. 

(CNN)The case for President Donald Trump is simple: He made the economy work for so many Americans, kept us out of new and costly wars and even brokered peace deals in the Middle East.

He believes our taxes should be lower, not higher — and signed into law sweeping tax relief for businesses and the vast majority of federal income tax filers. He thinks government shouldn’t overregulate, rolling back numerous Obama-era overreaches, while working with his Republican allies in Congress.

Commentary: Aggravation from the Congregation – By Yvonne Sam

 People cannot change the truth but the truth can change people

 By Yvonne  Sam

Now that Covid 19 has forced us all to worship in a different style and aisle, it is time to

No need to shoot the messenger, except to remember that it is clearly stated “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32, and it shall always remain the truth regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.            Continue reading
