The In-efficiencies Of The NYC Housing And Reconstruction Authority!

The In-efficiencies Of The NYC Housing And Reconstruction Authority!

Politics and lots of money determines what gets built, and how soon it is done here in New York City.

The building in this photograph belong to two owners.

The one in white is where I reside, and the other one with the scaffolding was formerly a Hotel, which was closed for decades.

Only recently was the scaffolding installed, and it would take literally several years for the paperwork and approval for re-construction is approved.

That is why this city is commonly called “The Scaffolding City.”

What Has Happened To La Masia?

What Has Happened To La Masia?

I am referring to the historical FC Barcelona Academy for young recruits into the football world.

We have had and nurtured hundreds of such recruits for decades, resulting in Lionel Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Pique, and several others.

But somewhere along the way we seem to have lost the interest in this venture.

Preferring to BUY players with an already established reputation or recognized skills.

Hoping that they will bring us Trophies.

A very narrow minded and futile choice it seems to me!

Guyana heading for bankruptcy 2018!



Subject: My response to, Guyana heading for bankruptcy, gold reserves and market securities plummet.

All governments hitherto, and in the aftermath of British colonialism in Guyana, have been plagued with mis-management of the state’s financial affairs.

And the current David Granger administration is no different either. I cannot imagine why it is difficult to comprehend simple budgeting or mathematics.

If you spend more than you earn in revenue, the state, like any household will go bankrupt.

This reality does not seem to be understood, or probably they expect some cosmic intervention economically, to keep the state solvent.

Planning For Your retirement Years!

Planning For Your retirement Years!

There was a time not too long ago, when most of us permanently employed individuals could concoct such a plan.

Today, this is hardly possible for most of us. The employment prospects are precarious to say the least.

And most of us are working temporary jobs, with limited hours, no healthcare or vacation leave with pay either.

So what are we to do?

I cannot imagine how many of us can afford to save a little something these days. Much less plan for a vacation somewhere.

This is what has happened to most of the employed poor and working people currently.

Suicide Bombers Who Are Children!

Suicide Bombers Who Are Children!

How can you re-educate those thousands of children who have seen their parents killed by foreign and local bombs. Leaving them all alone, hungry, and un-protected.

How could you make these children forget those evil experiences, and look to the future for betterment?

And what can anyone do to prevent the hatred these children feel for those who did them wrong, from not seeking revenge when they grow up?
