Yesterday was recognised worldwide as World Aids Day.

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, at 1800 hours our female Soca warriors will engage Ecuador at the Hasely Crawford stadium. The prize? A chance for glory—qualification for the women’s world cup which will be held in Canada in 2015.

In late August 2014 the National Drug Council purportedly began a series of public consultations on the question, I understand, of “marijuana.” The first was reportedly held on August 25 in Port-of-Spain and was described as a “marijuana consultation” in the newspapers. What exactly was it meant

Single fathers have taken a bold and courageous stride in making their plight public to the nation at large. This is not only commendable, but noble on their part. It is certainly refreshing to hear that they would like to play a greater part in the lives of their children.

I liken certain, not all, elements in society to the verse from Romans: “Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips,” in how they have perfected the art of primal mode behaviour—hunting with lips dripping of blood for anythi

Taxpayers cannot sit silent and allow a potential Torouba Stadium debacle to overwhelm us motorists and commuters in Curepe.

It is a shame that this young batsman in Australia had to lose his life in such a tragic manner.

I have complained on countless occasions about keeping Caribbean Airlines (CAL) flying despite the fact that it is losing $1 billion annually. CAL is a walking dead. It refuses to lie down and play dead. From 2006 to now CAL has been a financial embarrassment to the people of T&T.

It is said we reap what we sow; a man’s honour should be more sacred to him than his life; any man’s death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind. Wayne Kublalsingh is such a man.

Being stuck in traffic seems to be a part of daily life for most commuters. An associated, though recent and rather frequent, phenomenon I have noticed is the use of sirens by police officers for the sole purpose of getting through traffic.

I have never had reason or inclination to write to the editor but an incident on the highway compels me to express my sincere appreciation to officers of the Highway Patrol.

I would like to commend MP Stacy Roopnarine for her portrayal of integrity and commitment to good governance. It is quite refreshing to see a young woman take such a bold stance to ensure transparency prevails.

The riots in Ferguson, Missouri have really scared me. The residents continue to express their outrage over the killing of Michael Brown. And it’s not just because he was an unarmed teen, it was because he was a black teen who was shot by a white officer.

He could hardly talk.

The tragedy of the murdered German couple was indeed a heart-rending situation and surely our entire nation sympathises with the couple's relatives during this difficult time. Our beautiful sister isle has been stained by this cowardly and heinous act. But we cannot let this define who we are as
