Clean hands keeping our bodies whole

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.  –– 2 Corinthians 7:1 These words of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians –– which give support to Methodism’s founder John Wesley much touted mantra that “cleanliness is next to godliness” –– [...]

Grand hall of fame for our super seniors

No sooner were we done lamenting the low-key approach to Senior Citizens Month this year, we were presented with the inaugural recognition project Hall Of Fame For Centenarians. And it was a moment of significance for all of us who hold dearly to our ageing and aged, and ever respect and honour their contribution, and [...]

Making a case for Barbados’ indigenous sport

Road tennis, said to be the creation of Barbadian author George Lamming and the late Lance Bynoe, has been around since the 1930s. It is played in every nook and cranny of the island. Over the years, the game has gathered impetus, thanks to the efforts of its organizing bodies, the tireless work of its [...]

Let’s get to celebrating our seniors

You wouldn’t think this is Senior Citizens Month! Not with the lack of inspiring announcement of the dedicated celebratory time to our elderly, and with the absence of the remotest of fanfare. Perhaps, we have been preoccupied with the demand of tuition fees at the University of the West Indies and its consequent and marked [...]

Self-esteem and skills to the core

It has become fashionable for politicians, commentators, and even some educators, to suggest ditching the pursuance of what they term academics in favour of the exploration of “certified” technical competence –– but only for a certain type of student. The kind they believe it would be energy-sapping and time-consuming to teach to comprehend, reason and [...]

To be well or not to be is the call

We live in the age of wild –– and for some of us, whacky –– health claims. Joining the miracle diets of late have been the miracle home workouts, miracle herbs, miracle sex stimulants, and now miracle foods that a gullible people have been assured will only bring miraculous results, failing which you may take [...]

By our deeds we shall all be known!

The word is that crime in Barbados is down, but murders are up. The cynic might proffer out of this that there is little point to reporting any serious offences against the law if the chances of facing your own demise for it are high. The 16 per cent reduction in crime reported by Acting [...]

Justice delayed still remains justice denied

Something rather peculiar is happening. And it all has to with the administration of justice in this island. We will not regurgitate the frequent complaints related to the seemingly endemic sloth within the judiciary. The Caribbean Court of Justice has already damned Barbados for this in its Winton Campbell vs the Attorney General appeal ruling of [...]

A future that all hangs on Mum and Dad

There could hardly have been a more appropriate time to expound on, or remind parents of the duties and responsibilities they have to their offspring than yesterday, the start of the new school year. And to be truthful, the point, remarkably, was not belaboured –– yet could not have been missed. Principals, for the most [...]
