Why are consumers accepting poor service?

I love to watch the nature channel especially when it shows how instinctual behaviour governs the lives of wild animals in their habitat. The 'herd' mentality is also apparent, so everyone in the pack blindly follows what everyone else is doing without question. That got me thinking, are consumers in a herd too?  Are they governed by instinctual desires that they can't control? I am in no way suggesting that consumers are animals, after all I am also a consumer but over [...]

Earning while you spend!

I love to see that the funds that are accumulating in my account.  I especially enjoy knowing that all my hard work and sacrifice is going to pay off when I get that big payday. Wouldn't it be great if I could have earned while I spent money? Is that even possible? Watch those Bank charges Well the first thing you can do is getting out of the habit of giving away the money that you are trying to save. How do [...]

CIRCUIT RACING : DAVID SUMMERBELL JR. IS AYRTON SENNA!

I read with dismay, the words which conveyed that an accident transporting extreme consequences occurred at Jamwest Speedway on Sunday. The images that were captured could not, even if filters were applied, mask the burdensome implications which lay ahead. Thankfully, it was evident within a short time frame, that no driver, marshal or spectator, suffered life-threatening injuries. We are grateful. As time elapsed, despite how close we came to catastrophe's door, the expected began to unfold. NDRC I make no apology for saluting the [...]

CIRCUIT RACING : FATE OF THE FAST AT JAMWEST!

May 20-21. May 20-21. May 20-21. Do I need to say it again? Just in case you missed it. May 20-21. On those two God-given days, matters arising re which Caribbean nation retains the fastest machines will be answered with undue haste at a multi-purpose facility which, arguably, is the most modern and exquisite of its type in the Caribbean. This is Jamaica and we have a habit of delivering nothing but the best! So, on May 20-21, 2017 speed-ogres from 'Yaad' [...]

I WISH FORMULA 1 WAS THIS INTENSE !!!

For myriad reasons, I maintain a robust love-hate relationship with F1. I know that the delicate beasts which parade around the multi-million dollar circuits, on the continents which comprise the F1 season, cannot engage in the contact-sport atmosphere which thrives in other disciplines. But, I wish F1 was somewhat like this! REAL RACING !! Cecil Munroe Gleaner On-Line Writer [...]

FORMULA 1 : HAMILTON READY FOR THE WAR!

A few moons ago scorn was constantly blown Vettel's way. Why? It was widely felt that Vettel, when he was Red Bull's gladiator, slaying everyone and collecting scalps, was aboard a superior machine. So, even though he was dominant, his equipment was credited for his achievement. Red Bull's superiority, like a derailed train, eventually screeched to a careening halt and Vettel landed at the prancing horse. The prancing horse was not the Kentucky Derby winner of the Schumi era though so [...]
