Harris at Large

“Our world is in big trouble. Divides are growing deeper. Inequalities are growing wider. Challenges are spreading farther.” United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres.

The just concluded United Nation General Assembly held in New York, was an opportunity for nations who are concerned about what is happening today as it relates to world peace, climate change, hunger, inflation, etc. to vent their views and highlight the plight and opportunities of friendly nations. 

It was an opportunity for developing nations such as Saint Lucia who was present at the meeting to bring to the attention of the Assembly, not only their own problems and recommendations for a better world but to highlight the plight of friendly nations such as Taiwan, Cuba, Haiti, and Venezuela. Apart from international relations and the respect for the rights of each nation under the UN Charter, PM Pierre took the opportunity to introduce his government’s much promoted initiative – The Youth Economy to the Assembly. This project can be a model for the world to follow as we have done with other institutions. Our Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) is one such example.

This has been a very busy week for news professionals with lots of competing breaking stories. I will attempt to do a round up.                                                                   1. Hurricane Ian touched down in Florida and wreaked havoc, leaving substantial damages in its wake. I guess the telephone lines linking the Caribbean to the USA were extremely busy as relatives and friends tried to establish contact with their loved ones to ensure that they were safe.  

2. Russia is ready to annex parts of Ukraine and advance the war, hoping to bring the fighting to a conclusion. It is important to note that young Russian recruits are absconding in droves. This is definitely not a good sign for Russia, and it exposes the fact that the people of Russia are not in favour of the war their country is waging against Ukraine. It is time for the leaders of Russia and Ukraine to sit at the table and bring closure to this horrible war.

3. Great success was achieved this week in Space, while the majority of people in our world thought that the USA was asleep in Space and that nothing was happening on that front. The USA sprang a surprise as NASA DART Mission hits Asteroid in first ever Planetary Defence Test which was an unprecedented success. I am confident that America has lots of surprises in store. No wonder, many people feel it is the strongest military in the world. 

4. This week, Italy got its first female Prime Minister, Ms. Giorgia Meloni from the right wing Brothers of Italy party. Many in the free world fear that this move can be the beginning of a return to the fascist era as was under Benito Mussolini who headed the National Fascist Party, from 1922 to 1943.

5. The 6th of January Committee was scheduled to hold its final public hearing this week before the 2022 midterm elections, and hopefully will get down to finalising a report for the Department of Justice in due course. However, the Public Hearing was postponed due to Hurricane Ian. Recent developments that were drawn to the public’s attention are all further nails in the coffin of former President Donald Trump. Be careful what you wish for others and if given the opportunity, will like to do to them. He wanted to LOCKUP Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton and plans to impeach President Biden if he wins the 2024 Presidential Election.

6. It will be difficult to tell President Biden not to run in 2024, based on all the gains he has made in recent weeks. He did it on his own terms, staying the course and in the end causing Senators Manchin and Sinema to do the right thing. Former President Donald Trump has committed to the Presidential Race in 2024. Congresswoman Liz Cheney and Governor DeSantis are two likely early contestants in the Presidential Primary. DeSantis will have to win in November to become a serious contender. Only time will tell.

This opportunity is taken to share with my readers a long held dream of mine which became a reality this week. I am now the Creator of a FREE Business Course titled “STOP PROCRASTINATING, BECOME YOUR OWN BOSS”. It will be free for a limited time. “Everyone may not be a practising Businessperson, but Everyone needs to know about Business.” Here is my gift to the world.
