A pebble sealed away in a sterile, static, vacuum chamber for 59 years would look, weigh and feel the same as it was on the day it was placed in storage. On the other hand, if the pebble was under dramatically-altered paradigms, it would be whittled down considerably, or even turned into dust, probably inside the first 59 minutes. 

Time alone does...

Located on a stunning 400-acre hillside site in the northern part of St Kitts, Kittitian Hill is a fine example of carving out an extremely high-end tourism product within its landscape.

One thing was quite evident in that return of the UNC’s Monday Night Forum. Apart from the ostensible reason of giving a mid-term report, Prime Minister Kamla Persad–Bissessar had to reassure her people that she is their Indian Prime Minister.

It distresses me greatly when I see important people who run this country dismiss and trivialise the protest fast of Dr Wayne Kublalsingh in such derogatory and disrespectful terms using phrases like, “playing the fool,” and words like carcass.

I have been exercising in gyms for over 30 years and it was the first time that I was ever turned away from using a gym. I attempted to pay for a spin class from 6 pm to 7 pm and was told by their receptionist that I could not use their gym anymore because I sweat too much.

The ugly scenes at the game are a reflection of our society. It mirrors everything about us. We must not look to attribute blame. Do a proper unbiased investigation. Sport is supposed to instill discipline and unite a nation. When things go against us, do we take matters into our own hands?

There have been opposing views on whether the AG was lucky that the OPV’s were resold of if it was simply his brilliance that resulted in the $1.3 billion repayment.

By refusing to provide in-depth information on why the alternative route of the planned highway is an untenable option, this Government has raised suspicion that its insistence on this segment of the highway is rooted in egos, personal vendettas, corruption, and downright incompetence.

I have come to the conclusion that the more secular we become, the more dehumanised we become. I have heard people, some of whom are educated Christians, state that they do not care if Dr Kublahsingh dies. We become the judge, jury and executioner. Most of us love to follow the crowd.

For the past few months I have been to several funeral services for stalwarts of the St James area. St James has been and will always be the home of one love. It’s a place where different cultures and peoples live in harmony.

The minister’s help is required by dialysis patients urgently. I wish to highlight the financial hell that dialysis patients are exposed to after being operated on at government hospitals and then told, “Find a place to go; we can no longer accommodate you.”

The Prime Minister recently highlighted the value of respect for elders in our society when she defended the act of bowing to her elder, the Prime Minister of India. Such traditions and values are important in a society with little or no respect for senior citizens.

Diabetes knows no borders and has become a truly international problem.

What used to be a time filled with anticipation and excitement at the prospect of walking or driving through areas filled with gently flickering and peaceful lights has now become a night of terror and sheer hell on earth.
