A Futile Venture

For as long as we can remember, employers and a host of other interested parties have bemoaned the parlous condition of this nation’s educational systems.

From Disconnection to Development

For quite a while now, the Bahamian people have been obliged to look deeply at not only what is happening world-wide, but have been obliged to understand that what they had blithely described as ‘development’ was no such thing. Step by step, inch by dread inch, more and more Bahamians have been awakened to the […]

Press Freedom Matters

As one International Press Institute (IPI) official so ruefully laments: – “…We find it particularly appalling that an island nation as vibrant as the Bahamas, which so fiercely cherishes independence and maintains close ties to the United States and the United Nations, condones the jailing of journalists and disregards the people’s right to know…” Like […]

Come Clean on NIB

The Bahamas:- Simply, the Best

When it comes to sports and achievement, The Bahamas is – pound for pound – simply the best in the whole wide world. By this way of seeing and understanding things such as those that recently took place at Carifta, we are clearly [pound for pound] greater than the rest. But of course, we yield […]

Police on the Rebound

We are on all fours with Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade when he confesses: – “…When your public loses confidence in you then, of course, you are on very, very shaky ground…” The fact today is surely as follows: – The Police Force is on very shaky grounds!
