Like domestic violence, the belief by some women that they are lesser mortals and cannot face the world without having a boyfriend, is not unique to T&T. But we have to admit that Trinbagonian women appear particularly susceptible.  

Having a child is also another badge of honour that is no big thing if the father is employed and “passing the...

I wist to thank Mr Imbert for taking time out of your busy schedule to respond to my letter. I appreciate it. While I don’t want to get into a weekly back and forth of letters, I feel I need to clarify my position.

On January 21, the Minister of Finance presented a colourful and snazzy response to growing criticism and complaints on his fiscal policies. Upon inspection and analysis of the document and his statement, however, one would realise that it is without substance and devoid of any explanations...

Another of the stalwarts and great champions of the Test match era has called, or rather was forced to call, time on his great career that spanned over two decades.

I too become impatient at times waiting for things to happen.

The evolution of technology world wide has had an impact on the way we transact business on a daily basis. The world has become small, allowing the exchange of goods and services with the touch of a button.

This problem with vendors all over the place is solvable. In the UK vendors are given an open space to ply their wares. This space is usually near to the town centre, but not in the town centre. It also has ample place for parking, or is on a bus route.

I read in one of the daily newspapers on Thursday where it was stated that Pan Trinbago has organised a “fun area” for children at the National Junior Panorama Finals which will be held on Sunday. The cost for this “fun” area is $60 and it is all inclusive (whatever that means).

I wish to highlight an obvious and disturbing case of what may appear to be child victimisation at the Warrenville Presbyterian School.

Three courts have now ruled that the Government’s repealing of the controversial  Section 34 was legal. These courts were the T&T’s High Court, T&T’s Court of Appeal and the London-based Privy Council (our final court of appeal for these matters).

As if we didn’t already know it, a WHO report out of Geneva stated that “child obesity is an exploding nightmare.” But instead of facing the reasons square on, the report makes waffling statements about “biological pathways that can expose children to an elevated risk of obesity once they are...

In the modern ethics of today’s world, self-promoting publicity is acceptable and the notion of privacy and the line of discretion between what is private and what is public is fast disappearing.

As a parent of a current SEA student, I wish to express my dismay with the new format of the SEA examination. Much of it is based on subjectivity and not meritocracy, and should not be assessed at this level. The new format is even more burdensome and several aspects are rather nonsensical.

Among the largest judicial white collar rackets is what the court system calls preliminary inquiries. Or hearing to decide if theirs is a case to answer. Lawyers love this racket as they get paid on the motivation to keep charges on matters from ever going to real trial for hearing.
