Noted Trinidadian Marxist critic C.L.R. James must have turned in his grave when at a meeting of Caribbean ministers on the state of cricket in the Caribbean, one minister said that the time had come for society to move on, to turn its back on the game, because it had served its purpose. The context of the statement was one of popular social distress caused by yet another defeat at the hands of the Australians. The English had also inflicted a painful defeat upon the West Indian team now considered among the three weakest teams playing the international game. The social traumas caused by persistent defeat were to be found everywhere. In the workplace, references to falling productivity were commonly made; in the domestic space, family relations were made miserable by the general social anxiety that followed the humiliating defeat. In the Caribbean, for sure, cricket is no sporting matter.

I share your sentiments
Folks always ask me why I have not visit my birthplace since
Australia vs West Indies, Bourda 1991 (btw we win the game since de previous 26 years)

Bourda is no more : Test match is all de way at Providence.
History treated with scant regard simply because Corruption
cannot have Gergetown floods controlled by proper infrastructure and drainage.
They just teefing all the tax monies.
and give up on Bourda green jus so !

I toured with a Canuck squad Jamaica, St Lucia , Barbados and TnT.
up til 1995

That was it for me as well..
Chances of visiting looks bleak.

Qatar expects to receive six F-15 fighter jets from U.S. by March 2021

Qatar expects six F-15 war planes will be delivered to its air force by March 2021, a military official said on Monday, the first batch of 36 it agreed to buy from the United States last year in a deal worth $12 billion.

When Emmanuel Mudiay cut down the right side of the lane, closing in on the rim on a fast break late in the game Sunday night and took a pass from Trey Burke, he spotted Garrett Temple moving in front of him. A decision to be made with the game still in the balance, Mudiay chose confidence.

He went right at Temple and over him, slamming in a dunk unlike anything he’d shown in his time with the Knicks, drawing a foul on the play and putting the game away.

“I just saw him sizing me up,” Mudiay said. “So when Trey gave me a good pass I just jumped and the rest is as it happened. But I went in there with a dunking mentality.”

“It was ferocious,” Knicks coach David Fizdale said after the game and after getting soaked by his team to celebrate the 103-98 win over the Grizzlies in his return to place where he had been fired a year earlier. “It was the stamp on it, the exclamation point. He just wanted to bring it home so bad. Just a big-time basketball play.”

A larger number of Guyanese who had previously held 10-year US visitor visas have had their US Visa cancelled or revoked over the last 6 months for various reasons, now adding just around 312 more to an initial figure that was believed to be over 200.

It is believed that as of August 2018, more than 85,000 Guyanese citizens were in possession of US visitor’s visas; – a figure that can gradually decline if the rate of revocations continue.

Thought the US Embassy in Georgetown refuses to clarify numbers, airline return-passenger data and general entry and exit information from the US State Department was able to tag the number of cancelled or revoked visas for Guyanese at around 537, within the last 18 months.

At least 39% of the visa revocations were as a result of new but credible information that the US Embassy would have received about existing visa holders from informants or other sources. In other instances, the embassy would have also discovered other details about a visa holder that was previously not at their disposal, or may have discovered data that is inconsistent or untrue when a review of the visa holder’s previously approved application was done.

Others have lost their visas because they have either overstayed in the US, was involved in questionable activities, was earning money, or had breached one of the conditions of their visa. In other instances, some visa holders who were abusing their visit privileges were asked to remain outside of the United States for more than a year before they can return, since most of those who had claimed that they were employed are remaining in the US for as much as 6 months; – a factor that would mean that the person is most likely no longer employed or may be engaged in employment in the United States.

The most affected by the recent visa revocations are those between the 21 to 35 years age group, followed by those between the ages of 36 to 45.
There were almost no visa revocations for persons above the age of 50, even though most persons above that age range are generally long stayers in the US.

Despite this, and strangely enough, Guyanese are still able to obtain a US visitor’s visa relatively easier than their counterparts in Trinidad, Barbados, or Jamaica, and now has one of the highest visa per capita issuance ratio for US visas within the Caribbean Community.
