The Young Deceivers

As if they thought no one was looking, the young luminaries of two highly regarded countries sat down and agreed upon an action which left the turd world reeling in COVIDIAN amazement as the resulting scandal stank to high heaven.

“The pandemic has hit our countries hard and has taken a heavy human toll. Inspired by the resilience of our people, and driven by a spirit of solidarity, Canada and France reaffirmed their commitment to working together to address the multidimensional challenges caused by the health crisis.”, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau affirmed on June 12.

Is TT Spinning Out of Control?

Balanced on a finely positioned set of wheels, Trinidad and Tobago is currently experiencing a gentle slide across the axis of its holographic plane to gracefully settle into a higher realm of people evolution.

It’s a brand new day in “Sweet T+T”.  You can hear the spirit awakening in the chirping of the birds, the lively chatter of voices on the radio waves, the urgent calls of parents for their children to zoom off to the “dumbing down” academic factories.

COVID-19 and Trade in Latin America

(LECM)World trade has suffered a serious setback with the onset of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Over the past decades global trade has expanded because of the impetus by mainly western world leaders.

Globalization is a concept which invigorates the expansion of world trade in a stable and progressive manner, which would enhance the economies of most countries. The United States of America was the principle component of globalization that in some ways can be seen as Americanization.

Going Digital

While TT Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s ambitions for digitalizing this twin-island Caribbean state (Population: 1.4 million approx.) may in synch with global trends, there still remains the nagging question of the capacity of the population to keep up with the technology.

Ray Kurzweil has predicted that by 2030, computers will have more brain power than humans and will be able to out-do and outlast them in a number of ways.

Kurzweil should know. He’s the man who gave us the platform for a number of applications that are part of our homes today. Now at Google, he’s leading the way in pioneering new ways of being which will revolutionize the way of being of the next generation, staring now.

In his ground-breaking “How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed “, Kurzweil describes a series of thought experiments which suggest to him that the brain contains a hierarchy of pattern recognizers.

The Assault on the Capitol

The holographic cycle of change has not only spun itself out of control but, for the Trump administration, a totally different dispensation is breaking through the new space-time cosmic ceiling. 

With Donald stepping backward out of the predictable past, Kamala Harris is prepping herself to be the first black and female President of the United States of America is waiting to take over from the head honcho whenever the need arises. 

Harris’s Caribbean roots make her the natural shoo-in for a chaotic situation where only her spicy seasoning can heal the wounds still left open in the wake of the recent debacle.

Guyana on the Brink

The age-old narrative about how large countries can engulf smaller ones for economic and political gain is being played out on the south American mainland where Venezuela is waging a frontal assault on Guyana’s mineral-rich Essequibo back yard.  

The Guyana saga is yet another example of the upstart ex-colonial entity daring to take its sense of freedom seriously against the background of a reality that belies this fact among titans in the practical world.

For how else can you explain the behaviour of a long-established, historically driven aristocratic state like Venezuela finding the time to encroach on a neophyte country like Guyana now just getting its feet wet in the league of nations?

UK issues anaphylaxis warning on Pfizer vaccine after adverse reactions

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s medicine regulator said anyone with a history of anaphylaxis to a medicine or food should not get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, giving fuller guidance on an earlier allergy warning about the shot.
Starting with the elderly and frontline workers, Britain began mass vaccinating its population on Tuesday, part of a global drive that poses one of the biggest logistical challenges in peacetime history.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said there had been two reports of anaphylaxis and one report of a possible allergic reaction since rollout began.

“Any person with a history of anaphylaxis to a vaccine, medicine or food should not receive the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine,” MHRA Chief Executive June Raine said in a statement.
