Police accused of being responsible for drug trade'    Trinidad Express Sunday March 24

Stakeholders and informants, both outside and behind prison walls, have accused certain police officers of being bandits.

"Police are frequently accused of being responsible for much of the corruption that exists in the drug economy," according to the findings of the crime report put together by the five-member committee chaired by Prof Selwyn Ryan to enquire into the cause of criminality in the country.

 In its findings on the issues of "Prison Reform, the Justice System and Policing", the committee reported it was told by informants that they believe that between 30 to 40 per cent of the members of the Police Service were corrupt and that policemen were either "invisible members or associates of gangs or controllers of their activities".

Is The Government Addressing The Non-Communicable Disease Crisis In Trinidad and Tobago?

Image
It May Appear That Way But A Closer Look Raises More Questions Than AnswersThe impact of NCDs on our populations can no longer be viewed solely as a health crisis. The Government of Trinidad and Tobago recognizes this challenge and has therefore put in place measures to prevent and treat persons affected by these NCDs.
We have experienced great successes and strides in public health.  We have been able to reduce infant mortality, eradicate polio, and virtually eliminate childhood diseases like measles, and diphtheria as major causes of infant morbidity and mortality through our robust primary care programmes.

Nevertheless, over the past decade, heart disease has remained the number 1 cause of death, accounting for 25%.  Diabetes has remained fairly constant accounting for just under 14% of deaths.  Cancers have increased slightly from 12.7% to 13.8%.  In the case of strokes, however, there has been a 1% decline from 10% to 9%.
Those words were delivered in a speech by Prime Mini…

How To Permanently Control The Growth Of Unwanted Hair

Written for a client, Elite Electrolysis 7 Wart Removal Clinic, to promote her hair removal services. The business is located on the Eastern Main Road, Eldorado, Tunapuna Trinidad, It follows.

The human species has always had a compulsion to remove body hairs. Driven by the need to conform to cultural and societal norms, man has a history of inventing new hair removal procedures.

Ironically, hair removal is usually not prompted by a medical condition but by a desire to enhance beauty or appearance. Tradition and cultural perceptions of beauty makes hair removal from certain parts of the body accepted and normal. Women, being beauty conscious, are more prone to remove body hairs man on the other hand, if he shaves remove hair on a daily basis.

6 Years Later "Youth Voices Magazine" Still Strong

Image
For a few years now I have been associated with a young magazine put together by a group of youths managed by David Massiah. I met David when I had first returned to Trinidad. It was quite by accident,

I had created a local merchant coupon booklet and was in the process of selling pages to local businesses when a merchant in Tunapuna that he had already purchased from David Massiah.

Who was David Massiah?, I asked.

Somehow we connected after hearing about him from the merchant.  David was the master mind behind the Youth Voice Magazine.

 He organized the youths and coordinated the entire magazine production process sold ads and begged for sponsorship from where ever it came.  I remember one of our initial conversations:

 Me: "Hey David both you and I know that kids not reading anymore"

Him: "Yes but they should and the stuff they getting is all about T&A. I want to offer something different, something more positive."

That has been his position ever since i…

This is the content of an email that was shared with me and in my opinion the world should know about.  Nothing was changed on it except for the formatting.  The author is unknown.  Just doing  my small part for humanity.  It's entitled:


SWEET POISON... 



In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick.  She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around.  Walking was a major chore.  It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.

By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications.  The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her.  She was in so much pain, and so sick she just knew she was dying.

She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughter's name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of.

She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basica…

Is There Corruption In Trinidad & Tobago?

Corruption Is A Natural Self Preservation Instinct
The Trinidad and Tobago government insists on transparency and anti-corruption in everything it does.  As one in a not so large population it is a little differcult to believe.

I have no political affilations and even support the move to remove the PNM government from power because it was obvious that the then Prime Minister had become a megalomaniac.

The country should have paid more attention to the words of the previous Prime Minister and ex political leader of the party that ousted him Mr. Basdeo Panday.  He hit it on the head when he said the country could expect "an exchange and no change".

It was an exchange in sorts that brought on more than one government missteps.  The government went into a fenzy a couple months ago when someone in Jamaica accused it of "ethnic stocking" like a guilty child they started throwing tantrums.  It did not matter the proof as usual is in the pudding.

Blatant and public proof…
