I agree with the Viewpoint that Social Workers are needed to help students deal with a multitude of traumas that may even exceed the regular School Guidance Counselors realm of expertise. Take one elementary school at which the students on St.Thomas in the U S Virgin Islands, have had to deal with the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma & Maria, and the results of the school remaining as the primary Emergency Shelter for almost two months after the other schools had reopened. Then this same school was unexpectedly merged with another Elementary school which the storms demolished. And now, the very same school has been forced to again house the neighboring Jr.High school on the very same grounds. These unexpected changes have all caused very serious dilemmas among many of the students. Bullying, fighting, and other negative situations have arrived. As a former stateside Youth Advocate, Former Caseworker and recently retired Paraprofessional from that school, I do what I can as a Volunteer to help out as needed, as a Recess Activities Aide two days per week to help the students adjust to all of the changes which were forced upon them in these past two years.

DARK NET : INTERNET TERRORISM It has been observed that how terrorists and extremists are creating growing numbers of safe havens on the Dark Net to plot future attacks, raise funds and recruit new followers. The Dark Net use for terrorist purposes occurred because the monitoring of the surface web by social media companies and security officials have resulted in a faster rate of removal of extremist content from social media platforms. Correlated with this is an increased use by terrorist networks of the Dark Net for communication, radicalization and planning attacks. The Dark Net has been associated with the infamous WikiLeaks, as well as Bitcoin, said to be the currency of the Dark Net. Of course, dissident political groups, civil rights activists and investigative journalists in oppressive countries have also been known to use the Dark Net to communicate. As far as nation’s security concerns, let’s take Dark Net on serious issues list. Please read more on below link http://www.observertimes.in/dark-net-internet-terrorism/

July 19, 2019. MEDIA INVITATION FROM GUYANESE PARLIAMENTARY OPPOSITION Opposition Members of Parliament of Guyana would tomorrow (Saturday July 20) meet the Trinidad and Tobago media on the illegal and illegitimate caretaker Government in their country. The Guyanese Government has refused to call a general election following the passage of a no-confidence motion in Parliament last December and the subsequent validation of that vote by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ). The CCJ has asked that a general election be held as soon as possible. The Granger Government is continuing business as usual in spite of the fact that it is unlawful and unconstitutional and despite its public commitment to abide by the CCJ’s ruling. The Members of Parliament would update the T&T media about the national state of affairs at that fellow Caricom country. The media conference takes place at the law offices of Mr. Randy Depoo at 43 Woodford Street (corner of Warner Street), Port of Spain, from 10:30 a.m. For further information, kindly call 868-682-9377. Thank you for your response to this invitation. Thank you

This poem is for the victims of the Christchurch massacre. A Smear On Every Faith And Creed When places hallowed by the names of God temples, synagogues, mandirs, and mosques become scenes of gruesome murder of children, men, and women in prayer, then the world must know it’s a crime against humanity the evil that confounds reason and understanding, yet its hideous head keeps raising and now even in unexpected places to unleash its agenda of violence and hatred. This naked evil thrives on tribal fear and division so blind to every human feeling and emotion a smear on every faith, creed, and nation, and as the king of the jungle will never yield to a mere jackal or the mighty Atlantic be swallowed by a filthy crooked wayward stream, we must send a message clear and loud that to evil and fear we will never bow. Haimnauth (Cecil) Ramkirath
