  • Trauma

    History does repeat itself, albeit in seemingly new iterations for those who choose to avoid the study of past events. The circumstances of prior actions are sometimes seemingly tedious in their playing out (or time of festering) due to the slow speed of communications in past times. Today, years...
  • Precautions for survival in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian

    My sincere condolences go out to our friends in The Bahamas who have suffered the loss of loved ones, and extreme devastation. The slow passage of Hurricane Dorian across The Bahamas was, for me, a new phenomenon in the concept of a natural disaster. This is the very first...

  • A Frightening New State Of Bravado Among Criminals

      Crime continues to raise its ugly head across the nation, and the blame game continues to dominate the news, ranging from the incompetence/corruption of the Jamaica Constabulary, all the way to calls for the influence of politicians over illegally armed supporters. Speculations of all possible causes are on...
  • NIDS laudable, so let’s address the concerns

    It is with sadness that I extend my sincere sympathy to the family of the Most Honourable Edward Philip George Seaga. He was a Prime Minister about whom character and corruption were never mentioned in the same sentence, and whose intellect for understanding the ordinary Jamaican was one of...
