Anand Ramlogan updated 30/07/06

The preset controversy involving removal of the Chief Justice (CJ) has split the judiciary into three camps. You either support the removal of the CJ or not and then there are a few in the middle who are desperately trying to remain neutral...

Dana Seetahal updated 30/07/06

Ever since I saw the movie Oliver Twist and experienced tears burning my eyes when the hungry Oliver asked for some “more” (and was ridiculed for it) I have appreciated the meaning of compassion...

Denzil Mohammed updated 30/07/06

Demand on campus is high for everything from caffeine and nicotine to meals and medicals, but none is more prized than a domicile. And, despite a student-driver population augmenting exponentially every year, free tertiary education and increasing admission quotas guarantee that the student accommodation currently on the UWI market will never be sufficient...

Dr Hamid Ghany updated 30/07/06

As the crisis over the stand-off between the Chief Justice and the executive branch of government deepens, there is an even greater need to understand the kind of uncharted constitutional waters into which the country is plunging...

Ira Mathur updated 30/07/06

Lennox Grant updated 30/07/06

The fickle world that, one month before was falling over itself in admiration for the T&T Soca Warriors, was, by last week, seeing in this country only cause for ridicule...

Martin George updated 30/07/06

I have heard and listened to a plethora of diverse views and opinions from members of the public at all levels—from the ordinary man in the street, all the way up to CEOs and board directors—and it seems that many people are highly impassioned about the current events in the judiciary...

Overand Padmore updated 30/07/06

Last Sunday’s column called for restraint concerning the drama involving the Chief Justice, the third-ranked office in the order of national precedence...

Peter Quentrall-Thomas updated 30/07/06

Last week I devoted my whole article to the fact that the Police in T&T are in denial that dealing with crime is their responsibility. I had lots of feedback from readers and my thanks to all of you...

Simon Lee updated 16/07/06

Two weeks gone already? I cyar believe that. If I was a quipper I’d roll out something about time flying whilst having fun, but since I’m a serious-minded cronkuero and a Jewish Creole to boot...

Monday

Debbie Jacob updated 24/07/06

I don’t want to sound like Oprah Winfrey and make some big announcement about going on a diet, so let’s just say I’m experimenting with the latest knowledge in weight control...

Fr Henry Charles updated 24/06/06

Al Gore got some unusually good press recently for his movie An Inconvenient Truth. The movie is about the greenhouse effect and global warming, issues that had long been a cause with Mr Gore, and made him the butt of much humour, as the preoccupation of oddballs like himself...

Prakash Persad updated 17/07/06

Creativity is to the engine of economic growth what oxygen is to the ignition engine. Without adequate quantities of oxygen the engine would stutter even in the face of a plentiful fuel/energy supply...

Tuesday

Dr David E Bratt updated 25/07/06

A series of four articles in this week’s British Medical Journal, almost all in a row, one after the other, made for interesting reading...

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read...

Wednesday

Clevon Raphael updated 26/07/06

On the advice of reputable legal sources I am staying away, for the time being, from the ongoing controversy involving Chief Justice Sat Sharma and other senior public officials...

Ravi Ji updated 19/07/06

I am surprised at the level of interest last weeks column roused on the subject of Indian aesthetics. Thank you for your calls...

Tony Fraser updated 26/07/06

The fundamental mistake made by Prime Minister Patrick Manning and his Government in attempting to find a resolution to the first set of allegations made against Chief Justice Satnarine Sharma was to agree to mediation behind closed doors. After eating up valuable time, 19 months of obviously futile back and forth, mediation has been abandoned and the matter is now before the High Court...

Thursday

Greater Caribbean This Week updated 27/07/06

The convention establishing the Sustainable Tourism Zone of the Greater Caribbean (STZC) was signed by the heads of state and/or government of the Association of Caribbean States in December 2001...

Leela Ramdeen updated 27/07/06

This week I participated in an annual fund-raising event organised by Living Water Community (LWC) via its Trinity Communications Network (cable TV, Channel 10). The theme for the week is: “The beauty of Christ and the joy of communicating it.”

Sat Maharaj updated 27/07/06

The Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha (SDMS) and the Islamic Relief Centre Ltd filed a constitutional motion seeking the enforcement of our fundamental human rights and freedoms as guaranteed in the Constitution of T&T. High Court action No CVS 2065/2004 was heard before Justice Peter Jamadar...

Dion Jeffers updated 21/07/06

“Why bother to spend precious time awakening the conscience of citizens, some of whom prefer to live in a state of blissful denial...

Gillian Lucky, MP updated 28/07/06

The accusations continue to fly and no one is being spared. It appears that as long as you differ with the views of the members of the Executive or expose their impropriety, you are subject to attack...

The refusal of Satnarine Sharma to resign as Chief Justice has only had the effect of positioning both himself and the nation in an lose-lose situation...

Attillah Springer updated 29/07/06

It didn’t occur to me until this week how much I missed being part of Emancipation celebrations...

Gail Alexander updated 29/07/06

In the role of host for Tuesday’s awards ceremony for former Soca Warriors coach Leo Beenhakker, it appeared that President George Maxwell Richards was completely focused on toasting the Dutchman and his work with the national team...

Lisa Allen-Agostini updated 29/07/06

Remember when it had a squatters’ mall in town name the Drag? It was on Independence Square which part it have Brian Lara Promenade now...
