Wellness is a State of Mind for Seniors as "Healthy Ageing Starts Now"

When we sat down for an event in recognition of Caribbean Wellness Day (many of us in suits and ties, high heels and the like) at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, little did we know that half an hour later, we would be on our feet, gamely swinging our hips, waving our arms about and more in a mini-workout, at the behest of "Jamaica Moves." It was quite a warm-up, and some repair work was needed afterwards on our makeup. We [...]

More Jamaicans Should Learn to Swim

"Swim! Swim! Swim!" urged a man in the Bahamas during Hurricane Dorian's onset. He was shouting to a group of people, shoulder-deep in flowing seawater. One of them, at least, clearly could not swim, but somehow they managed to help each other to safety, without panicking. In such situations, perhaps even a capable swimmer would have a lot of difficulty. Storm surge is not an easy creature to deal with. But it struck me that, if Jamaica should find itself in [...]

DRIFTING : MAD MIKE REDUCED TO TEARS

Say the name Mad Mike - the image and the auditory thrill of a tire-shredding rotary-powered Mazda machine should be prying its way into your vibrant subconsciousness.

Mad Mike may be credited by some, for keeping the rotary power-plant relevant in an era of motorsports which treats it as a relic from the distant past - a dinosaur even! But, his latest project possibly hurled him into an entirely [...]

MOTOGP : EVEN WHEN HE LOSES, HE WINS!

MotoGP has lost none of its lustre. It was felt that with Lorenzo on a Honda, Marc Marquez would be in for a tumultuous ride. No further comment. Marc's most significant threats have emerged from elsewhere and every now and then an unusual suspect emerges. At the most recent edition of MotoGPmania (my term), at an iconic motorsports track - Silverstone - a nerve-racking confrontation unfolded. Marc Marquez and Alex Rins unleashed a reign of deep-seated satisfaction on MotoGP fans. It was [...]

WRC : STILL THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!

The 2019 edition of WRC Germany recently ripped the tarmac in a country that is more than familiar with rather rapid machines. Despite being familiar with phenomenal machines, from the stables of motorsports powerhouses, including Porsche, Audi and Mercedes, I am certain citizens of Germany are still reeling from the soul-shifting, pleasurable, inebriated state the WRC machines dispersed as they conducted their asphalt assault! WRC GERMANY 2019 TOYOTA 1-2-3! Toyota brought a broom to the party! Cecil Munroe Gleaner On-Line Writer [...]

Do you really know what you are eating?

Recently I had a health scare that had me contemplating how best I could adjust my eating habits.  The first thing I noticed was how difficult it was to  decide what I really needed to eat. There is so much information that bombards you as a consumer it can become really confusing. It seemed as if everything that I liked to eat wasn't good for me. As I tried to navigate through all the advice about healthy food I wondered if [...]
