“Fingers on your lips” is what teachers would instruct children to do when they required them to be silent, to shut up. This has come to mind in the face of the silence of the social work community amidst calls for the resumption of hanging.

Open letter to PNM Senator Penny Beckles:

Thursday, March 3, 2011

Apparently under the PP Government a child’s life is more valuable than an adult’s life. Utter rubbish! The premature and unnecessary demise of any human life is a tragedy. The Government must treat all homicides and murders equally, regardless of the age of the human being involved.

While listening to the parliamentary discourse on the  resumption of the death penalty, one could easily assume that there are no voices opposed to state-sanctioned murder.

The most important things in life are the intangibles. They are things such as love and hope, friendship, brotherhood and even nationhood.

“Our ancestors would be moaning and turning in their graves at the sight of what Carnival and J’Ouvert have become.” That is a sentence we have been reading within recent years at Carnival time, usually delivered by a newspaper columnist or a professor of history and culture at the University of...

I would like to know if the Calypso Monarch contestants are adhering to the rules of the competition, especially the one that states that each contestant must sing “a minimum of three verses and a maximum of four.” My question is: if an artiste sings two verses then repeats one of them, does...

My Carnival season was going so well and then came the selection of the Dimanche Gras Calypso Monarch finalists. When the judges can select Aloes, Chalkdust and Cro Cro as finalists and omit Heather Mc Intosh, Guidance and the calypso- nians who sang about Aliens and Laptop, something has to be...

A Form One student, a 13-year-old boy, beats up his teacher in full view of his classmates and the president of TTUTA says that “an incident of this nature is a very serious one and I am concerned to know that a student can be brave enough to assault a member of staff on the...

On February 9, I called Caribbean Airlines (CAL) requesting the cost of the Port-of-Spain-Caracas fare, departing February 25 and returning on March 13. The fare quoted was $3,516. I also requested the Port-of-Spain-Miami-Port-of-Spain fare on the same dates.

I started coming to Trinidad for Carnival in the early 80s, mostly to enjoy pan music as I was playing pan in those years in Berlin, Germany. In 1989 I moved to Santo Domingo, where I lived some good six years.

I share the view of the thousands of people who attended the Panorama semi-finals at the Queen’s Park Savannah. Indeed, there were improvements geared at the performers and patrons having a superb time.

We are fortunate that the incumbent in the Speaker’s chair is a man of integrity and the Opposition in particular should not court his displeasure with unnecessary adventurism or petulance. One notes with sincere appreciation the even-handedness with which the Speaker adjudicates.
