The Editor speaks: Literacy

Sunday September 8th is Lieracy Day and the theme is ‘Literacy and Multilingualism’.. “Multilingualism”? Wow. Try to say that quickly? I wonder who came up with that? (Someone belonging to the United Nations.) Yes. I know what it means, but how many people actually use that word, if ever? According to Wikipedia “Multilingualism is the […]

The Editor speaks: Togetherness and Love

I really didn’t know what to write about today. The aftermath and the death of CITN/Cayman27 is still occupying my mind. I happened to say to the lovely Jamaican young lady (Phyllisia) that stays with us, “I don’t know what to write about today” She said, “Write about love. Surely Joan wrote a poem about […]

The Editor speaks: So KAABOO goes down the LOO!

A ‘loo” in the UK is another name for a toilet.. I have to admit I am not surprised KAABOO 2020 is not going to happen. We will also not know the TRUE reason or reasons why. Does the word “corruption” spring into your mind? Of course not. The 019 festival held in February was […]

Cayman: MURDER!!

Last Friday August 30th 2019 at 7PM a death occurred. It was, without any doubt, murder. The murder was watched by over a thousand people. The culprit(s) should be brought to justice but won’t. Twenty seven years ago a baby was born. Twenty seven years later its life was snuffed out. At the television studios […]

The Editor speaks: When will ‘she’ ever learn?

After being let off lightly by one of our very nice ex- Ministers for false reporting, Sandra Hill, of Cayman Marl Road website, apparently didn’t learn anything. The website and owner have also had public condemnation from the RCIPS for their reporting. Now Health Minister, Dwayne Seymour, has filed a legal action against them both. […]

The Editor speaks: Are we gradually becoming so impacted on bad news it doesn’t shock us anymore?

Nastiness makes a bigger impact on our brain than good news. And that is due to the brain’s “negativity bias”. Your brain is simply built with a greater sensitivity to unpleasant news. The bias is so automatic that it can be detected at the earliest stage of the brain’s information processing. – Ohio State University […]

The Editor speaks: Should security guards be armed?

The answer to that question is not easy? It invites more questions. Where is the security guard going to be placed? What are the working times for the security guard? What weapons will the security guards going to be armed with? What training is given to security guards to protect themselves and others, with and […]

The Editor speaks: The Four JUST Men

I am not discussing “The Four Just Men” detective thriller published in 1905 by the British writer Edgar Wallace. Nor am I discussing the 1959 television series of the same name produced by Sapphire Films for ITC Entertainment. A large proportion of our readers probably have never read the novel nor watched the television series. […]
