In every budget speech, the mantra of the urgent need to diversify the economy has been a popular chant. But instead of diversifying the economy to produce locally that which we import, our economic addiction to the energy sector has only grown stronger...

Dana Seetahal updated 28/09/08

The Minister of Finance made what I consider to be an amazing pronouncement in her budget statement. She said the Government believed that public transportation was “now reliable and efficient...

Derren Joseph updated 28/09/08

I love movies. I especially love local movies. So for film-lovers like me, MovieTowne over the past couple of weeks or so, has been more exciting than usual. The third Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival...

Dennis Pantin updated 28/09/08

The Trinidad and Tobago economy is analogous to a twin-engine turbo prop plane, not a 747 jet. Let us utilise this as the framework for discussing the 2008/09 budget...

Denzil Mohammed updated 28/09/08

I approached this career guidance thing with some trepidation. I’d done it before elsewhere; it was the school I was worried about...

Dust stirred by the budget had hardly settled when a Jamaican filly called Pride ‘N’ Glory, ridden by a Venezuelan jockey, gloriously kicked up her heels to win the Royal Oak Rum Derby Stakes...

Martin George updated 28/09/08

The feedback from last week’s article included some questions by people who were depressed and frustrated, asking what can be done about the crime situation. With a murder toll nearing 400 it is not a pretty picture facing the nation as we head for our end-of-the-year murder tally...

Into every life a little rain must fall and it seems in this meeting that I’m caught up in the floods...

Ira Mathur updated 21/08/08

“Where is your bounce?” He asked, my husband of many years.


Debbie Jacob updated 22/09/08

Three Women must have been the best kept secret in town. Even though the play had a respectable audience at the Central Bank Auditorium, I can’t help but think patrons would have had been lining up for blocks if they had any inkling about just how powerfully entertaining that play was...

Fr Henry Charles updated 15/09/08

It’s difficult at times to evaluate what is meant by the view that we live in a state of moral crisis, or, more seriously (and ominously), amid a state of moral collapse. Of these two positions, I think we can safely discount the latter...

Prakash Persad updated 22/09/08

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction is a well-know law in classical mechanics. It is used by physicists and engineers to design space rockets as well by the 100-metre sprinters...



Dr David E Bratt updated 23/09/08

It had to come I suppose.

Pastor Clive Dottin updated 23/09/08

We have heard many times about the power of a dream, the need to have a plan and to execute that plan.



Clevon Raphael updated 24/09/08

So the 2008/09 budget has been presented and as usual the measures are drawing mixed reviews from stakeholders, the largest of course being a beleaguered population.

Tony Fraser updated 24/09/08

Is the building crisis in the American mortgage market and financial system the initial stage of the crash of American capitalism?



Sat Maharaj updated 25/09/08

Approximately four years ago, an Australian Christian missionary and his son were killed in a remote district in north-east India.

Peter Ray Blood's Pulse Column updated 26/09/08

First up, I must thank the many readers who responded to last week’s column headlined “No confidence in Friends,” especially the e-mails received from columnists Rafique Shah and Nasser Khan, and June Cartar...

Gillian Lucky updated 26/09/08

As a person committed to the fight against crime, it would be remiss if no comment was made about the subject in terms of the minuscule coverage it received during the budget presentation on Monday.



Attillah Springer updated 27/09/08

. It’s one of those days when nothing moves me enough to write about it. And I’m not sure how I should feel that I can’t seem to find anything that I really really desperately want to say.

Gail Alexander updated 27/08/08

When Finance Minister Karen Nunez-Tesheira left the Parliament chamber at 11.20 am yesterday, midway between UNC deputy leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s hard-hitting budget reply, Nunez-Tesheira didn’t seem to be fleeing.

Lisa Allen-Agostini updated 27/09/08
