National elections in Guyana are due in just over a year. By that time the ruling party would have been in government for four consecutive terms totalling nineteen years.

Who Rules America: Wealth, Income, and Power
This document presents details on the wealth and income distributions in the United States, and explains how we use these two distributions as power indicators. Some of the information might be a surprise to many people. The most amazing numbers on income inequality come last, showing the change in the ratio of the average CEO's paycheck to that of the average factory worker over the past 40 years. First, though, some definitions. Generally speaking, wealth is the value of everything a person or family owns, minus any debts. However, for purposes of studying the wealth distribution, economists define wealth in terms of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research - Study: U.S. workers put in most hours - August 31, 2001
Lawrence Jeff Johnson -- the chief labor market economist who has led the ILO team in producing its new "Key Indicators of the Labor Market 2001-2002" study -- also says American workers are, per person, more productive than their counterparts in other countries. "But we're not the most efficient, when you compare it per hour, looking at the Belgians and the French." Weigh in on the ILO's study finding: Are you working longer hours now than you were 10 years ago? It seems almost cruel to mention this to our Stateside readers on Labor Day weekend, but Johnson says the Europeans' comparatively ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
With Wimbledon win over Tomas Berdych, Rafael Nadal replaces Roger Federer as ...
With his win at Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal cements his status as the world's number 1 tennis player, a spot that Roger Federer (b.), now the No. 3, had owned for nearly a decade. WIMBLEDON - Rafael Nadal 's most enduring achievement on Centre Court on Sunday afternoon wasn't that he won his eighth Grand Slam title, or that he became the first man since Bjorn Borg , who was on hand to watch, to twice win the French Open and Wimbledon in the same year. It was that the moment his last top-spinning forehand winner hit the browning lawn and left poor Tomas Berdych helpless, Nadal announced the arrival of a new tennis era. market trends, news research and surveys resources
2010 World Cup: Five Differences Since Germany vs. Spain at Euro 2008
Though Del Bosque has replicated Aragones’ success at consistently coaching a winning team, he has drastically altered Spain’s highly effective midfield. At Euro 2008, Spain generally fielded Xavi Hernandez alongside Villarreal holding midfielder Marcos Senna in the center of the park, flanked by David Silva and Andres Iniesta. Del Bosque’s major change was to leave the 33-year old Senna, whose club season had been plagued by injury, out of his 23-man roster. Barcelona’s classy young ball-winner Sergio Busquets has filled the role of midfield enforcer effectively, but it is the presence of Xavi Alonso alongside him that has ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Are kosher and halal meats illegal in Switzerland, Sweden, Spain ...
Because I heard that when making the meats in both Islam and Judaism, you gotta have the animal's blood drained out first, and that's apparently an extremely slow and painful death for the animal. So is it really illegal to slaughter meats by halal and kosher traditions in those countries? Lol, I wouldn't say "extremely kind" to animals. After all, the animal IS being slaughtered for consumption! I don't know what's the big deal if the animal were just stunned first and THEN killed. Would the Abrahamic God be THAT upset if there was stunning involved first? 1 year ago WHERE are you ...
