• Lord! What Of The Fly?

    Satirical Corner A just concluded UN Report has expressed concerns about the United States’ “seemingly reckless abandonment of multilateralism – representing the alliance partnership developed after the 2nd World War – for a defiant unilateralism”, which it says has likened the US to “a deserted country.” The Report, authored...
  • Jamaica’s Challenge: Finding An Effective COVID Communication Balance

    During the first seven months of 2020, I did not personally know anyone who had COVID-19 and therefore I was unaware of persons known to me who had died. Since mid-August, I am up to a count of ten persons who have died that I knew. We have had...
  • Security Guards: The New ‘Frontline’ Managers

    One of the truly remarkable paradoxes in the field of organizational management, must be the role and function of security guards.  If ever there was a group of workers whose functions vested in them a level of responsibility, authority and autonomy equal to that of any CEO, it is...

  • Time For An Alternative System Of International Currency Transactions

    Recently, several international banks were revealed publicly for handling more than two trillion dollars of illicit transactions of an unsavory nature between 1999 and 2017.

  • Trainers Are The Real Superstars

    Exciting contests for the last two trainers’ championships have brought the work of race horse conditioning into focus. Jockeys are the super-stars of racing (undeservedly in my opinion) because they’re the obvious “talent” seen on racedays similar to TV/radio hosts who, however famous by exposure, are really the product...
  • Moving Governance Forward

    Following on my last article, the time has come to address several things related to good governance that should be attended to in the Parliament.
