CHANDERPAUL IS A MODERN GREAT

He is far from bring the most elegant batsman around. His technique has been described as crabby and unorthodox and he does not possess the fluid grace of a Lawrence Rowe or Brian Lara. He also lacks the raw power of a Clive Lloyd, Viv Richards or Chris Gayle, but if things go well on back-to-back tours of India and South Africa in the coming months, Shivnarine Chanderpaul should return to the West Indies next January as the most prolific [...]

MotoGP: Rossi, Rossi, Rossi!

If I was a supreme linguist I would overwhelm your advanced intellect with an effervescent flow, littered with Italian expressions! I would be equipped with a mastery that would embarrass Rosetta Stone. I would be able to - like the mindless Italian souls who were ridiculously fortunate to witness their hero, their warrior, their legend and their source of happiness, in action at the most recent GP – proclaim, from the highest vantage point, my admiration and extended praise to [...]

As a result there was a recurring cry of, 'No schoolers,' [...]

Telling our Jamaican Stories: The Art of Videography

How important is it for young Jamaicans to tell their own stories, the stories that are true to them? Young graduates from Phase Three Productions' "Art of Videography" summer workshops are already starting to craft their individual narratives through the medium of film. The 18 - 25 year-olds were almost all hand-picked for the two free workshops offered to thirty young Jamaicans as part of Phase Three's thirtieth anniversary celebrations. Last week, the group gathered at the Winchester Road office, all [...]

Consumer complaints - Is there a right way to complain?

I have heard consumers complain about unfair treatment meted out to them from various companies. Unfortunately, there seemed to be much confusion about the steps consumers can take to rectify the problem. The most common solution seems to be to take their business elsewhere while spreading their dissatisfaction to everyone they meet. While that solution certainly might seem attractive, does it really serve the consumer's or the company's best interest? At times the complaint might not have gotten to the attention of the [...]
