Since the bodies of the teens were found in the Cotton Tree backdam, triggering protests in West Berbice, the Guyana Police Force has been under immense pressure to find and charge their killers. Continue reading
BOOK REVIEW by H. Steven Moffic, MD | Psychiatric Times – January 2020
It is a new year, an election year, with impeachment looming and the Iranian conflict – funnily enough, this book is not about the President of the United States. IT IS ALL ABOUT CULTS.
The cover of The Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control, sets the mood with President Trump’s last name as well as the ubiquitous red baseball hat worn by his supporters, embossed with the word “cult” in the center. Some psychiatrists may wonder if this book is breaking the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) “Goldwater Rule” (GR). Rest assured; it is not. Continue reading →

Good afternoon and thank you for being here today.
This is a day in which we mark another pivotal step forward in the enduring partnership between the United States and Guyana.
This visit builds on the momentum gained by Secretary of State Pompeo and the US International Development Finance Corporation’s recent visits here – and reinforces the US commitment to our shared regional security and the prosperity of the Guyanese people.
The acquisition and cross servicing agreement we signed today, streamlines how our governments efficiently exchange goods or services to support effective – and mutually-beneficial – defense cooperation. With this agreement, we are entering a new era of defense partnership that will strengthen regional stability. Continue reading →
Slices of daily life in a sunny home by the sea. For good measure, the goings-on of the locals around the home are thrown in. The book is liberally sprinkled with madcap…at times, philosophical…conversations between mother and daughter, visitors, tradesmen. Food is plentiful. Tall tales add to the sauce. A ghost seeks help. Stones grow. A snake dances.
Around the home, the wind and the birds whistle. Sunbeams, filtered by trees, limbo across the lacquered wooden floor.
Some nights, danger lurks. Bandits. Gunshots in the wee hours of the morning. A thief sneaks into a neighbour’s home. Continue reading →

Like most people in their growing up years, I discovered early the influence music can have in our lives, ranging from birthday parties to wedding receptions to special days in the year, and in celebrations big and small in venues ranging from simple to elaborate. Also in my 50-plus years as a musician, I have seen that influence being played out in a range of occasions in a range of countries, with joy and exhilaration so frequently the result.
Along the way, however, I must confess that the singular exception to that euphoria for me has been the Auld Lang Syne music that is a fixture in New Year’s Eve celebrations in most countries. From the first time I heard it as a young man in West Dem, that particular piece of music struck me as an odd choice because there is a definite message of sadness, I would even say regret, conveyed by the music; it makes us tearful.
