I write in response to the recent letter regarding the suspension of the Allen Prize and the subsequent exchange of letters regarding the work of the Bocas Lit Fest.

The term “scientific polling” is probably a misnomer. Some say that polling is a science, others that it is an art. The truth lies somewhere in between. The phrasing of questions may influence the outcomes. Sometimes the pollsters get it all wrong as was seen in the recent UK elections.

I refer to the recent phenomenon of tonnes of seaweed being deposited on our east coast and in Tobago. In fact, the Chairman of the Mayaro/Rio Claro Regional Corporation Hazaree Ramdeen has expressed his difficulty in dealing with the situation.

I would like to address those people who have still been trying to cross the highway in Curepe/St Augustine as well as La Horquetta/Arima in the vicinity of the La Horquetta Primary school (back of school is CR Highway) when there are pedestrian crossings a few feet away. I have seen women with s

In every dispute there is my view, your view and the truth. We all want the truth but get caught up in the thrill seeking it. Sharing and hearing the stories are more important than finding the truth.

We are all so worried about Moody’s downgrade of the T&T economy, but this is not the end of the world. Instead, I would like the nation to turn its attention to the eco-disaster that is occurring.

In an article published in the Newsday on April 30, a number of religious leaders objected to the bid of a citizen of this country to hold public office. Their utterances and reasons for objection may prove to be misleading.

I have supported different political parties at different times in my life hoping for better infrastructure, education, reduction in food prices and the list goes on, but what I have observed as I reflect, is that many politicians made promises and did not deliver, and we were left wanting and in

Say what you will, Basdeo Panday is an established local icon and belongs to everybody. He can win a safe seat under the United National Congress (UNC) or the People’s National Movement (PNM) and with a good majority.

After listening to the founder of the UNC, Mr Basdeo Panday’s unkind and ungentlemanly remarks on Kamla Persad-Bissessar, the woman who he trained and mentored to be the political animal she is today, I can only conclude that he is jealous of Keith Rowley and Jack Warner.
