How to plan for financial emergencies!

It can happen suddenly. One minute you are in a comfortable job able to pay all your expenses, the next minute you are unemployed. Others might suddenly get sick and be faced with hefty medical bills. Their recovery might also limit their ability to provide for their families. The financial impact of the Covid pandemic has had on the economy has certainly brought to the forefront the need to have savings. The hurricane season is also upon us which can be [...]

FORMULA 1 : VETTEL HEADING TO MERCEDES?

Say it is not true! Say it is not possible! Say it is incomprehensible! We should slowly but, methodically, dissect what Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff had to say when questioned about Vettel and his (Mercedes) driver line up. I will admit that based on what we know about Lewis Hamilton - his propensity to wage psychological warfare and his bruising encounters with Nico Rosberg, which some argued, coerced Rosberg into immediate retirement after winning the World Championship - Vettel joining [...]

Meal ideas on a budget!

If you have children you have heard this statement many times: ''That's for dinner, again!" It has become even worse during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Meal planning which was always a challenge, has now became even more of a headache.

We are thinking a lot about health, about life and death, these days in the time of COVID-19. But, as the German writer Goethe said, Blut ist ein ganz besondrer Saft.

Others think that if they give a pint of blood, they will lose their strength, fade away, get sick. Some people think you can never get that [...]

THE BEST DRIVER YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!

Frightening but true - the figure for lives lost in the USA  due to Covid-19 has exceeded the 100,000 mark! Covid-19 is a selfless brute. We (Jamaica) are not out of the woods yet, so wash those hands and wear a mask. If speed is your drug and you hold in high esteem, the individuals who are best at manipulating its whims and fancies in order to secure victory, chances you are familiar with the name Jim Clark. If you are [...]

DAVID SUMMERBELL JR. - STALK AND EXECUTE MODE !

Miss Covid-19 and her negative attachments are features of 2020-life that we are, at present, compelled to embrace and accept. I submit, however, that we will comply, but, protest vociferously because like poverty, she is an unwelcome guest! She is still here? Silent race-tracks and empty stands have forced us to revisit the past. History is an interesting subject and it provides ample fodder for vibrant discussions. If we subscribe to the current doctrine, we accept that the Radical platform is an [...]
