Ask anyone in the larger art world about Trinidad and Tobago, and they will gladly inform you that Peter Doig is from there. Thank God for Peter Doig putting us on the art map. 

A few other names like Chris Cozier, or Che Lovelace, are familiar to the art world outside the tiny T&T context. But there are many more T&T artists for the world...

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the staff of the Scarborough Library for the recently concluded exhibition of Slave Registers.

Former Prime Minister Mr Patrick Manning was always quoted as saying “A day in politics is a long time.” This statement is indeed compounded when you are having a bad day. The United National Congress (UNC) maybe demonstrating a sense of blind loyalty to Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

It was a sad day in the Republic of T&T last Friday when a High Court Judge ruled that the actions of the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC), on the day of a national general election, were illegal.

Let me congratulate all involved in the effort to create excellence in the area of sport, personal and human development, through the vehicle of the Olympics journey.

While the majority of young Trinbagonians stay preoccupied with catching Pokemons and increasing their number of followers and “likes” on social media, there were a handful who chose to represent our nation at the recently concluded Olympic games, held in Brazil.

Dear Keshorn,

I stuck around in front of the TV because they had to interview you after the event and I wasn’t missing out on that either.

I have seen very little comments about the executive pay packages at Petrotrin.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is a dynamic and evolving field that can be used to influence and engage youth within a community. It promotes interactivity through real-world situations so that the youth can become a problem-solver as well as a critical thinker.

I do not believe that we are taking the Zika virus seriously in this country. Not enough is happening. The population needs to be more educated, especially pregnant women. The Ministry of Health is not doing enough.

It was quite comforting when I heard that an alleged rape accused was not granted bail. Rape is a very serious crime which can lead to the destruction of a life. Our women are not animals and even animals are not treated in this way.

As I sat listening to the various tributes paid in word and song to the late Makandal Daaga last week Saturday at the Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah, I could not help but reflect on my own enduring friendship with this revolutionary colossus.

Prolonged exposure to loud noise alters how the brain processes speech, potentially increasing the difficulty in distinguishing speech sounds. Exposure to intensely loud sounds leads to damage of the hair cells which act as sound receivers in the ear.

I refer to a letter by D Krogh in Tuesday's Guardian (16th August) on the unbearable noise in Moka, Maraval last Sunday from a well-known party venue nearby. The letter writer is at pains to remind us that "People work hard to have a home. We are within our rights to enjoy our environs."

Forgive me for harping on the present PNM government’s plan for reforming the GATE programme. We were told that reform of this programme was an inescapable reality because of the country's present financial predicament.

Often I would have the opportunity to meet and discuss with young people, aspects related to their sexual practices.

Unfortunately, many of them even though sexually active, lacked proper understanding and made unsafe sexual choices.
