It seems we have a new word for plagiarism—it’s called “sampling.” So KI (Kris Persad) “sampled” Jab Gori Ne from the 2000 Bollywood movie Bulandi, called it Same Gyul Twice and won the Chutney Soca Monarch (CSM) in 2016.

In 2012, he “sampled” Dekhta Hai Tu Kya from the 2008 Bollywood movie Krazzy 4 and came up with Single Forever, another winning...

October 15 and 16 my wife and I attended a conference at the Hilton Trinidad on pornography. Some of the world’s experts were there as well as local experts and they spoke at the conference. It blew my mind because it revealed new research and very disturbing trends.

It would appear inevitable that T&T will, in the face of a doomsday scenario, be forced to become FATCA-compliant in the shortest possible time according to the shifting deadlines unilaterally issued by the IRS/Treasury Department.

As we fast approach the deadline to be FATCA compliant I will like to appeal to all our politicians to let common sense prevail.

Recently I was a patient at Ward 24 of the Port-of-Spain General Hospital and I wish to thank the doctors, nurses, cleaners and all those who attended to me, for they made my stay more comfortable than I had anticipated.

The security authorities should be aware of the illicit uses of drones.

In the UK drones have been used to supply illegal drugs and other illegal items to prisoners inside prisons.

Well, well, well, it is now quite obvious that the Government is beginning to feel the financial pinch by their announcement of the disbandment of the Community Comfort Patrols.

We keep on hearing that the police need our help and it is assumed that this is all about the murders etc. Allow me to suggest a very simple act that we, the public, can do to help not only the police but Trinidad and Tobago as a whole.

To any ordinary T&T citizen, it is a no-brainer that QRC must have that property west to Alexandra Street for its future growth, but with the latest statement issued by Maxie Cuffie who wears the title, Minister of Public Administration and Communications, citizens can now breathe a sigh of...

The state has finally decided to save money currently being wasted on the Community Comfort Patrol by disbanding that ineffective initiative. The vehicles you see occasionally cruising around, some appear to be more of a make-work programme than anything else.

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

Having read several news articles and letters to the editor on the issue of space for the expansion of QRC in light of a decision to use part of the Alexandra Street property as a police command centre, I wish to indicate that the matter should be addressed and resolved as soon as possible.

The PM explained some days ago that the PNM doesn’t have a crime plan, the PNM has an ANTI-CRIME PLAN (semantics). Well, well, the PNM use to make CRIME PLANS. Every PNM manifesto for the last 20 years speaks of making crime plans.

​Now that the Trinidad Cement Limited (TCL) board of directors has recommended to shareholders that the Cemex takeover bid be rejected, I am persuaded the time has come for the board in keeping with its fiduciary responsibility to immediately call a special meeting of shareholders to give...

“Get up, Get up stand up for your rights.” I echo the words of a song which was made popular by the late Bob Marley. I want to commend Shannon’s mom and all those who through a peaceful march sent a message, crying out for justice.

FATCA means Final Act of foolishness by The Opposition to Convince ALL voters that they are indeed incapable of governing T&T.

Walking out of parliament and insisting on a Joint Select Committee keeps them in the public eye as it allows for photo opportunities, nothing else.

Couched in your appeal urging the police not to let the Shannon Banfield case go cold was some statements unsupported by research. Your editorial asserts “the phenomenon of a killer murdering people he doesn’t know is very rare”.
