On Carnival Friday evening a relative went to the airport to pick up two friends arriving from Maimi at 3.20 pm. She arrived at the airport at 4 pm allowing 40 minutes to clear immigration and customs. The flight arrived on time. My relative waited until 5 pm and not yet seeing her friends emerge, she called them. The response was that there were...

It was an epic experience. This was a show that left patrons saying “I owe Machel some money” as the massive crowd got much more than what they paid for on the night.

The media have a very important role to play in the development of our music in the creative arts industry.

I take in the the Dimanche Calypso Show every Carnival, not armed with the list of criteria the judges may have but simply to experience a special moment in the rendition of a calypso with a message poignantly compelling delivered in a style that is subtle and intellectually driven, with an...

So, who decides which of our various multi-cultural national festivals are better for the country regardless as to the thinking of the Carnival believers? There is a lobby blames this season for the reason we are swimming in crime and murders.

In speaking with colleagues and listening in on the ground floor, I am convinced that, regarding the FATCA bill, many Trinbagonians were subconsciously and unwittingly inspired to prayerful action as was the acting Police Commissioner who sought divine intervention regarding the epidemic of...

The Minister of Education’s assertion that teachers are partly to be blamed for the unsatisfactory literacy levels in the school system has some merit.

People are increasingly out of jobs under this PNM administration. This callous PNM administration has effectively fired 60 On the Job Training (OJT) programme staff under the ruse of ‘restructuring’. From all information, this is nothing more than victimisation!

I have chastised the police when it was warranted and have praised them when they were deserving. With regard to the incident of alleged bullying at the Mayaro primary school, I can see nothing in the police’s lack of action which would justify the police being called to account.

The Clico Policyholders Group (CPG) has taken serious note of a recent headline in another newspaper which read Government exposed to shareholders, a reference to the shareholders agreement, which was signed in June 2009 between CL Financial (CLF) and the Government of T&T and has been...

I would like to say kudos to the staff of the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E) at the POSGH who worked the night shift on February 3. My mom, Marjorie Popplewell, was assessed by Dr Donna Rampersad when we arrived and was rushed into the A&E for immediate attention.

Whilst I admit that on numerous occasions, I have criticised the Police Service for their perceived failure to protect our nation, to protect you and to protect me, it is imperative that we take the TTPS’ motto, To Protect and Serve, in its entirety.

School is an institute of proselytisation and can be used as a tool for social integration. For parents, however, it also offers the perfect social corollary, as a place to shape children into model citizens of the world: responsible and law-abiding members of society.

In her article covering Calypso Fiesta, T&T Guardian reporter Yvonne Webb wrote, “The sting and tongue-lashing, the baptism of fire reserved for politicians were sadly missing. The majority of the 41 calypsonians steered clear of bashing the Government.”

I was listening recently to the excellent plans from some of the more well-known all-inclusive fetes in T&T. Really impressive, good food, good music, “sober stations”, exit food stations. Never mind the high prices... after all, its Carnival, no recession here.
