I looked at newspaper and television coverage of the Carnival with a deep sense of sadness. What I saw was a mindless copycatting of Rio’s pulchritudinous bacchanal. The “masqueraders”—if we can call them that—were hordes of women cavorting in “costumes” made predominantly of multicoloured bikinis, beads and large...

With regard to the Prime Minister’s address to the nation on planned Government strategies to deal with anticipated economic challenges because of the post Budget fall in oil and gas prices, we are still waiting.

Throughout the enlightened world, religious freedom is one of the most fundamental, cherished rights humans enjoy. And so, in the name of religion, a lot of good has been spread around. Sadly, tremendous evil also.

Given the recent spate of drownings, I feel obligated, as a conscious civic minded person, to share my life’s experience as a swimmer for over 40-odd years in the waters around the country.

The world is undoubtedly fixated on the tragedy that befell the French magazine Charlie Hebdo and the murder of a police officer.

It was really exciting to see one of our very own hotels being featured on Wheel of Fortune this week! As my grandmom saw and heard the Blue Waters Inn hotel being mentioned as a prize on the popular game show, she literally shouted in glee.

What has Bermudez done to our Crix? I have been reading Lisa Allen’s column in the Tuesday T&T Guardian and, in total agreement, I have to ask what has happened to our robust little cracker? Why has it been replaced with this wimpy mocking pretender?

Over the past couple of weeks we have been getting evidence that what the Minister of National Security has inherited is, for the most part, a badly trained police force. From the two in south who manhandled that cripple, to the two who kicked in the door like Clint Eastwood without the benefit o

Where does T&T stand in terms of economic survival in this rapidly changing world? Can we continue to rely on the export of oil and gas as our main source of income?

The police administration should use the opportunity of the recent incident in San Fernando to retrain the officers involved, and others as well, in their responsibilities to citizens.

I really hope the glass bottle ban for the Carnival season proposed by National Security Minister Gary Griffith is implemented.

The plea continues for help as we enter a new year and there still has not been a board allocated by the powers that be to approve Self Help Community projects. I have been a part of this waiting list and every time I visit the Self Help Commission in Port-of-Spain I always meet individuals who a

We need to be more vigilant, T&T. Mothers and fathers, grandparents and guardians, well-wishers, community leaders, religious bodies, all after God, let this be, for our children, a nation’s “2015 we resolve.” We resolve to drive safer on the nation’s roadways.

It is unclear to what extent the passing of Martin Joseph will affect the PNM’s chances in the upcoming general elections. Regardless from what side of the political divide one reviews his electioneering career, the deceased certainly made his mark.

On the face of it, leaders have little in common with looters, except the similar number of letters in both words. Sadly, there is growing concern of a far more sinister link as highlighted in the lament of an elder statesman of an oil-rich country: “We need leaders, not looters…”
