MotoGP: Marquez strikes back at Silverstone!

Seventy thousand fortunate fans got the opportunity of a lifetime at Silverstone on Sunday. At a track which has seen numerous historic events in motorsports, a rapidly maturing MotoGP defending World Champion, delivered a stellar performance. Marquez admitted that he was somewhat burdened by issues relating to his impressive win-streak, but  like a blessing in disguise, that picture changed for the better with his defeat at Brno recently. Who would have thought that being defeated would be a blessing! But, truth [...]

Do Consumers embrace changes?

I like dependable products and services so I don't readily accept change. This lack of flexibility has given me some grief as I struggle to get on board with new technologies and the nickname of 'dinosaur' by some of my frustrated friends. I just don't like change, as the old saying goes, 'If it isn't broke, don't fix it.' So I feel if things are going well why bother to change it? Change is good The truth is though not all change is bad. [...]

ARE OUR SPORTS IN TROUBLE?

There was a recent article published in the Gleaner in which Aubyn Hill wrote on Jamaica's existing economic situation.

Formula 1: Rosberg - a cheap cheat? (Part 2)

The Belgian GP apparently snatched scenes from a Quentin Tarantino flick. It was a seamless synthesis of events which appeared innocuous, but had rather profound implications.

The marque has no recent memory of the top step of the podium and a miscue minutes before the Belgian GP began, confirmed that the streak of underachievement would continue. When the machines lit air and [...]

What is the solution for unruly customers?

I have often used this platform to call out those businesses who provide poor customer service. This is because the motto of every business should be based on the concept that, 'The customer is always right.' What though if the customer is wrong? A number of customers show total disregard for the store's policy or show consideration to other customers. Many are impatient and feel that they should be attended right away even though others have been quietly waiting their turn. Then there [...]

Formula 1: Rosberg - a cheap cheat? (Part 1)

In the previous blog I stated - "The drivers’ championship is delicately poised and the truce is over. Hamilton vs Rosberg – the war will resume on Sunday. Prepare for the shelling!" I expected fierce, unyielding competition, sustained by an endless volley of Mercedes-led firepower. On Sunday, my expectation was short-lived. I doubt if all the fans were settled in their coveted seats before the selfish winds of change blew across Spa-Francorchamps. On Lap 2,  possibly blinded by 'red [...]
