Impressive West Indies

  At a time when West Indies are desperate for as much success as possible, the nine-wicket win against New Zealand in the first Test in Antigua was the right tonic towards winning the two-match series.

Satisfaction with your job

Job satisfaction is something that most people want. If you have to work to make a living, you might as well find a line of work that you enjoy. The problem is that most people would rather be doing something else. If given the opportunity to go to a better job, who wouldn’t jump ship? […]

I doan care

Emancipation and the Titanic

As we mark Emancipation Day, we must endeavour to look deeply at the areas of national life in which we cannot claim full emancipation and in which we have not fulfilled the hopes and aspirations of the descendants of the newly freed slaves. One very obvious area is the Jamaican economy which we can liken […]

Acquiring land

It should be apparent by now that the inalienable, fundamental rights set out in the Constitution are, given the right circumstances, alienable where there are higher considerations such as national security, public health, the Government’s right to tax revenue and the like. Section 16 of the Constitution while providing that “No property of any description […]
