Is there any way to curb the violence that pervades our society at present?

Our Prime Minister made a fairly positive speech to the nation but to my mind he was threatening the miscreants and it raises the question if this is the only way to deal with the issue.

As a winner of an Open Scholarship in 2014, I am honestly concerned about the level of disrespect towards national scholars and guarantors lately. Stipends are due to be paid quarterly in advance for the following three months.

On behalf of the residents and users of the stretch of road from the Samuel Cooper Road to the Rest House Trace, I thank the contractor, Latchmeesingh Contracting, for the upgrading.

This contentious Chutney calypso, Rowlee Mudda Count by Nirmal Gosine, has potential for massive interpretation. No need to lose sleep over it. I see nothing wrong with Mr Gosine earning some much needed money.

I really do not see what all the fuss is about the Rowlee Mudda Count song unless it really leads to banning all such songs. Calypso lyrics have been around here for decades and many have amounted to being outright insults with perhaps malicious intent.

Minister of Agriculture, Clarence Rambharat, is reported to have said with respect to the voluntary separation packages for Caroni (1975) ltd’s workers that it was a great deal for them and that “the taxpayers of this country would have spent $18 billion” to meet the cost. (Express 22/12/17)

It always amazes me that every time a song ridicules the Chinese community, it is acceptable and seen as comical.

Now I am taking a risk writing to the media to talk about the media but this is my attempt at seeing if the media have an agenda or are as transparent as many media houses claim to be.

I am not in support of any of the nominees for the position of President of the Republic. Why is it necessary for us to have an appointed Head of State? We are now 55 years Independent and 41 years as a Republic but it would seem that the colonials are still very present.

I have read with great amusement the comments of Professor Andy Knight and many other “experts” regarding Jerusalem and the UN vote. There are two reasons for this lopsided vote.

First a hatred of President Trump and a total lack of knowledge of the subject matter.

A fiscal guava season will never/has never totally ruined certain people. Supermarkets, undertakers, gas stations and the bankers all supply essential money-making services.

I was disappointed to read that the Minister of Education, the Hon Anthony Garcia, sought to dismiss fights among boys in the nation’s schools as being “a part of growing up” and “a means (of boys) establishing themselves”.

I was going to write about PNM politicians who are now asking for privacy when their scandalous private lives are exposed or those who seem aggrieved by allegations when they themselves, in opposition, made valuable currency of fake e-mails.

Yet again, we awake to the news of a preventable tragedy, the murder of Samantha Isaacs by a former intimate partner, someone from whom she sought protection, going to the police and to the court seeking justice and relief.

Being a leader on any stage demands that you step up your game. Why? You are now on centre stage and all eyes are upon you. This goes with the territory and you cannot escape it, hence the reason why you always have to be on the alert and give a good account by the way you conduct yourself.
