“Vox populi, vox Dei” has been an oft quoted mantra of many a local politician, from prime minister Patrick Manning to PM Kamla Persad-Bissessar. While the voice of the people may be the voice of God, the question remains who can we count on to spread the word of the Almighty?

Recently, my friends and I were discussing an article highlighting Khafra Kambon’s discourse in the panel discussion regarding Race Relations, Gun Violence and Human Rights. In his contribution, he basically branded our beautiful country as ‘racist against Africans’ based on T&T’s ban on...

I heard the goodly inspector on Beyond the Tape say a few weeks ago, that camouflage clothing is illegal in our country. Well, something is piquing my curiosity Mr Inspector. I saw camouflage clothing on sale at a store in Arima and I was amazed.

The marvels of modern transportation have reduced travel time between Port-of-Spain and New Delhi almost to the length of the journey between Coromandel and Chaguaramas at the turn of the 19th century. The benefits have been astounding.

I really like those Web sites like TripAdvisor.com and Booking.com where one can read people’s reviews on the place they have visited and the ratings given between one and five stars, with five being the highest.

I am moved to write this tribute to Aunty Hazel on behalf of all her guests featured on her magazine programme Mainly for Women. She invited me to share my college fashion portfolio with her television audience via an introduction made by the great lady of dance, Thora Dumbell. As I began to...

Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines Ralph Gonzales has offered the services of three sitting prime ministers to solve the impasse in which West Indies cricket has found itself. I beg to differ with this approach. Just look at the state of Caricom.

I recalled that when Parliament was in progress during the July-August vacation period there was a lot of whining and complaining from Dr Rowley and other members of the PNM that their vacation plans were being interrupted. Most of them made these public statements in the news.

Calypso history month is October 2014. How many of us are aware of this? Based on what is on the media, not many, unfortunately. What is calypso? It is African Caribbean music from T&T originating from African and European roots. The French brought Carnival to T&T.
