PAKIS KILL 80  CHRISTIANS / POPE FRANCIS  INTERVIEW

Violence in Pakistan – Cold shoulder for Sharif

FOR over a century All Saints Church in Peshawar, with its dome and minarets in the Mughal style, stood as a symbol of interfaith harmony. The notion was shattered on September 22nd when two suicide bombers blew themselves up in the middle of a crowd of 600 Christians milling about outside the church just after a service. They killed 85 and injured over a hundred. Even in a country drenched in violence, the attack caused a huge shock. Pakistan’s tiny Christian minority is used to prejudice and to bouts of mob violence, but a bloody suicide bombing is new. The government announced three days of mourning. The interior minister told Parliament he was lost for words.  [Read more]

OBAMA TO DINE WITH FIRST BLACK MISS ISRAEL

An advance party of White House officials insisted on inviting Yityish Aynaw, 22, to next Thursday’s gala dinner hosted by Shimon Peres, Israel’s president, after hearing how she became the first Israeli of Ethiopian origin to win the country’s premier beauty queen contest last month.

Her presence among 120 guests who will also include Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, Lt General Benny Gantz, the army chief of staff, and Rueven Rivlin, the Knesset speaker puts her ahead of many more august figures who have failed amid a desperate clamour to secure invites.  [Read more]

WILLFULL  WASTE  PROMPTS  CITY CLEAN-UP

BY  EWALT  AINSWORTH

The disappearance of Georgetown’s Mayor Hammie ‘BILALL’ Green during African departure month observances seems to have paid off.   The former Prime Minister made a b-line and was seen briefly on the A-train in the diaspora.  Now that he is back supposedly from Texas, according to the spit press,  he is trying to locate a vault and some personal and private items missing from his office at City Hall.  The best information suggests that the PPP wants him wasted willfully and or willfully wasted.  But this champion mayor still has a lot of twerk.  Continue reading

Dr. Walter Kyte

Dr Walter Kyte was not a pleasure seeker but it was his pleasure to serve the most vulnerable in the New York school system.    Students in his neck of the woods came from80 different countries and spoke twice as many different languages and dialects.  Many of his students too were un-documented and he created programs in which they participated and the results were convincing especially for first generation immigrants.

Dr Kyte …diminutive…a small man with tumultuous goals and a vigorous educational administrator he earned his mark in a distant place  never forgetting his humble beginnings.  Continue reading

How the bacteria in your gut may be shaping your waistline

Obesity – How the bacteria in your gut may be shaping your waistline

Sep 14th 2013 | NEW YORK- The ECONOMIST

A CALORIE is a calorie. Eat too many and spend too few, and you will become obese and sickly. This is the conventional wisdom. But increasingly, it looks too simplistic. All calories do not seem to be created equal, and the way the body processes the same calories may vary dramatically from one person to the next.

This is the intriguing suggestion from the latest research into metabolic syndrome, the nasty clique that includes high blood pressure, high blood sugar, unbalanced cholesterol and, of course, obesity. This uniquely modern scourge has swept across America, where obesity rates are notoriously high. But it is also doing damage from Mexico to South Africa and India, raising levels of disease and pushing up health costs.   [Read more]

By  Ewalt Ainsworth                                        09 10 2013

Guyana has lost two significant others and mothers..
Dead and buried is Ms Lucia Pollard. …a Buxtonian in name, nature and behavior.  This coming weekend Ms Margaret Ackman will be funeralised in New York.

There was a time in North America when your status was determined by the car or the house or pet or cruise or the tint of your hair.
Guyanese in the diaspora are planting and harvesting crops on their rooftops, backyard, poolside, window sills and stoops so as to stay fit nutritionally and elevate their class.   There was also a time too when your food …if grown and raised within a 200 mile radius from where you live…that is class.  Hom Continue reading
