CIRCUIT WHEELS ON FIRE - ALAN GORDON IS READY!

So Raheem Sterling's new deal at Manchester City will see him earning up to 300,000 British pounds per week! Where was parental career guidance when I needed it? Lol! The drivers who will be wrestling at Jamwest Speedway, this Sunday, at the Circuit Wheels on Fire event will be earning nothing similar to Raheem's bounty, but what they will deliver to their loyal fans will be worth significantly more than that which Raheem Sterling can add to his account! Preparations are in [...]

MOTOGP : MARC MARQUEZ - STILL THE KING OF TWO WHEELS!

So, when I was leaving my humble abode, BET was ripping a popular hip hob/R&B 'chune'. When I returned, hours later, the same hip hop/R&B 'chune' was flirting - again - with the atmosphere. Here is the icing on the cake though - one of the first lines in the 'chune' - Fat Joe says - "It's like deja vu". [The song is a Fat Joe, Chris Brown and Dre joint - Attention/> There are moments when individuals are presented with [...]

Youth Activism Is Alive and Well - If Given the Chance

Our Jamaican youth often get a "bad rap." Many Jamaicans believe they are lazy and self-centered. Millennials, in particular (slightly older) are seen as shallow and obsessed with material things. Jamaican adults often put young people down; between the ages of twelve and twenty-five, say, they are not entitled to express an opinion or have a seat at the "grown-ups" table. They are set apart in their own "youth forums" - and never the twain shall meet. We need to stop this [...]

Clean Kingston Harbour?

Why the question mark? Because I wonder if a clean Kingston Harbour is possible. An exclamation mark might be more optimistic. Let's order people to get together and make it happen! However, the topic of the GraceKennedy Foundation Lecture on April 3 was devoid of punctuation. It also had a subtitle: Pipe Dream or Pot of Gold? At this point, I would rather say the former; or perhaps, neither, because it is far too late. So, a few weeks ago I [...]

FERRARI WILL WIN IN SPAIN!

Two defeat-defying miracles in two days in UEFA Champions League, prove that even when hope is absent, it is not entirely lost. No one who understands the beautiful game and the concept of total football would have predicted that Liverpool could silence Barcelona fans, by overturning a 3 goal deficit to a squad which is led by, arguably, the game's greatest player of all time. And if that was not enough, Tottenham went to Johan Cruyff's home and capsized Ajax's [...]
