A quote in the Friday newspapers about T&T not having expertise locally to run Caribbean Airlines Ltd, is insulting to me, personally, as well as to one or two other locals who I know can be available at that level of compensation. I possess more than adequate knowledge and experience having worked at a far larger and globally competitive carrier,...

Somewhere, someplace in my younger years I have a sweet memory of a big brother taking my little hands in his, tenderly stroking its fingers, observing them, opining that I had the most beautiful pair of hands in the universe, later the world, then this little island and at some point, humourousl

The Good Prime Minister took care to dress in a glorious pink sari that day. She looked perfectly the part of some radiant royal Princess of the Lotus.

The TTPS has not given up but the onus is still on citizens to assist with information they can use in investigations. This includes doctors and members of the health sector who should be encouraging their colleagues to assist the probe, not simply saying “it’s up to the police.” If they have evi

While most or almost all have condemned the West Indies cricketers (led by Dwayne Bravo) for abandoning the tour of India, as a result of their dispute with the West Indies Cricket Board and the West Indies Players Association, I ask that we spare a thought for these players. Would you like a cut

The self explanatory cause to infer with the name "Citizens 4D Highway" may be less than meets the eye and it raises many concerns about the people in their group who are ultimately responsible for "distasteful expression." Who are the people instrumental in writing or purchasing advertisements s

Recently, my friends and I were discussing an article highlighting Khafra Kambon’s discourse in the panel discussion regarding Race Relations, Gun Violence and Human Rights. In his contribution, he basically branded our beautiful country as ‘racist against Africans’ based on T&T’s ban on Ebol

I heard the goodly inspector on Beyond the Tape say a few weeks ago, that camouflage clothing is illegal in our country. Well, something is piquing my curiosity Mr Inspector. I saw camouflage clothing on sale at a store in Arima and I was amazed.

The simple truth is that the Armstrong Committee has identified several deficiencies in the planning process leading up to the construction of the Highway. It was as a consequence of this historic and unprecedented convention of almost two dozen experts convened to study the most-costly piece of

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has consciously and continuously rejected the call for the restructuring of West Indies cricket, and at the level of governance, as the PJ Patterson report, which now lies somewhere in the dust halls of their boardroom, had suggested years ago. 

The marvels of modern transportation have reduced travel time between Port-of-Spain and New Delhi almost to the length of the journey between Coromandel and Chaguaramas at the turn of the 19th century. The benefits have been astounding.
