    Regional integration could mean moving to Guyana and Suriname

    CARICOM, as is, is dead. It is going nowhere fast. What with all the animosity, regional tension, economic tension and social tensions, CARICOM as it relates to harmonising and developing relationships throughout the region, is dead. The sad reality is that in spite of our common history and shared...
  • The Age of A.I and Robots

    Artificial Intelligence (or AI as it is more commonly known as) is fast improving as are robots. They are improving at such a rapid pace that it is very realistic that in the next ten to twenty years we will be witnessing AI and robots taking over jobs that...

    ZOSO will be a dud

    Finally, after over a year of dilly-dallying the Government has passed a bill aimed at ridding the nation of violence (mainly caused by gangs and inflicted by the gun). The bill sailed through the lower House with bi-partisan approval, and although the debate in the Senate went on for...

    THE WORLD IS LOOKING A BIT DARKER

    The world is a funny old place.  One hundred years ago a war was fought primarily in Western Europe to stop an imperial upstart (Germany) from becoming too powerful. Some 70-odd years ago, yet another war was fought (in almost exactly the same places) to stop the resurgent Germany...

    Stand with Venezuela or be torn apart alone

    Venezuela is in flames, with almost daily protests both for and against the government, severe food shortages and an economy in free fall.  We see a once proud and strong nation now on its knees. We see where a democratically elected president is being called a dictator (with one...
