  • Tiger Woods, the NIDS ruling and Notre Dame

      The past week had two significant events viz. The Masters Golf Championship at Augusta, Georgia; and the ruling of our Court against the NIDS legislation. The two may seem to have no relationship to each other and certain principles. Firstly, congratulations to the great Tiger Woods who has...

    Not just 9 points at Champs…

      Well, we have come to the end of the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys’ and Girls’ Championship, and we saw a comprehensive win by Kingston College over arch rivals and defending champions Calabar. It was a nail-biting finish on the girls’ side between defending champions Edwin Allen, who narrowly defeated Hydel....
  • This is the age for invention and innovation, not political crap

    Following my last article that tried to explain the ongoing commitment that capital expenditure requires, we have been completely distracted by the by-election in Portland, and the silly season it has produced. Both sides seem to be united in the excuse that bad manners, discourtesy, nonsensical dialogue, and stupid...

    Focus on the budget’s real long-term targets

    The National Budget Estimates of Expenditure 2019/20 have been tabled in Parliament, and many other commentators and analysts have had their say.

    2019 kicks off with the usual vagaries as any other year, and until the 2019/20 Budget is tabled and discussed, all is mere conjecture. So let us look at the current political situations making the rounds and distracting us. The first is the Mexican wall and the shutdown of...

    Hey, Rip Van Winkles, wake up, it’s 2019!

    A happy New Year to all our readers. I wish you all a healthy and successful 2019, and urge us all to be action people, rather than being talkers. Forget Donald Trump and the media circus over which we have no control, and focus on events within our control....

    Obfuscating the facts with the deafening noise of trivia

    It is very sad for me to write my last article before Christmas 2018 in a less than happy and hopeful way. It is a time of family, friends, the future, and faith, which we all look forward to. The four Fs remind us that, as citizens there is...
