Genetically I’m Indian - ancestors brought to ‘British Guiana’ from India during colonial times to work on #sugarplantations.

Culturally I’m #Caribbean as #Guyana shares historical and cultural ties with other Anglo-Caribbean countries.

La firme pompe 4 millions d’équivalents barils par jour (y compris gaz) de l’Alaska au Brésil en passant par la Papouasie Nouvelle Guinée et l’Angola, 60% de plus que Total.

2/🌏#Earth is surrounded by a constellation of tens of thousands of #satellites in orbit, but also of billions of #spacejunk of more or less large size, fragments coming from rockets or satellites, travelling at a very high speed: important risks of #collision.
3/💥#Kessler syndrome: we are rapidly moving towards a tipping point where the volume of space debris in low orbit is such that collisions are frequent, generate other debris and exponentially increase the probability of collisions.

A ver, perdí la inspiración....Veamos!! En mi opinión, la crisis de #Venezuela se comprende mejor desde una visión geopolítica. Verán, la dinámica del sistema político nuestro baila al son de los intereses extranjeros que sostienen al chavismo, y a su "oposición", en el poder.
Yo les recomiendo, si van a leer este hilo, tengan su mente abierta; dejen de chuparse el dedo. La política son relaciones de poder e intereses, a nivel micro y macro; y la nuestra no es la excepción, y si es a nivel geopolítico, más aún.
Me permito recomendarles que dejen de lado el sentimentalismo, y la defensa a ultranza de caudillos de Partido. Si usted no está preparado, y no tiene la madurez política para hacer eso, mejor se retira.

The #IMF says the "Great Lockdown" recession will likely be the worst since the Great Depression. Global economy projected to shrink by 3% in 2020. By contrast, in January, the IMF had forecast a global GDP expansion of 3.3% for this year. Details in chart below. Table: @IMFNews
IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 “assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains.” #WEO ow.ly/ZLYi50zccSJ

A few thoughts on the observations from @julianku last week on @opiniojuris about the #Guyana/#Venezuela dispute and its referral to the #ICJ by the UN Secretary-General. opiniojuris.org/2018/02/12/doe…
(1) It’s an unusual situation, but it’s difficult for me to follow the suggestion that a decision by the ICJ would not necessarily be legally binding in this case (because of the terms of Article IV(2) of the 1966 Geneva Convention).
(2) Article 33 of the UN Charter lists 'judicial settlement' as a possible means of peaceful dispute resolution. One might suppose that 'judicial settlement' (by the ICJ or another court) is, by its very nature, legally binding.
