SHELLY ECLIPSES VCB IN BRAND RECOGNITION

Last week it came to public attention that Shelly-Ann Frazer-Pryce was named Ambassador Special Envoy. The two-time Olympic and 2013 triple World Champion and her husband, Jason, were also issued diplomatic passports. It was an honour truly deserved for the young lady who just a few years ago, Jamaicans didn't even want to be a member of Jamaica's Olympic team to the 28th Olympiad in Beijing, China. Few remember now the public outcry when Shelly finished second at the national championships [...]

MotoGP: Lorenzo reigns in the wet!

Spain is home to several riders on the MotoGP grid including defending World Champion Marc Marquez and former World Champion Jorge Lorenzo. At the previous round at Misano, Italy, home-court advantage, fell into multiple World Champion, Valentino 'The Doctor' Rossi's lap. The tenacious competitor in Rossi shone brilliantly and he brought the hammer down on the stunned grid. He rode a maestro's race, which I am certain, compelled some to think back to a time when he ruled the world. But [...]

They simply could not grasp [...]

Drifting: Insane violence! (video)

If you are grateful that our Asian brothers have perfected a constantly evolving genre of motorsport and we can immerse ourselves in the 'rush' it creates. If you are simply a motor-head who dreams about high-revving, high-horsepower monsters being driven at the limit at a challenging circuit, we are on the same page. As I have stated before, [...]

Online banking - the way forward!

I am slightly old fashioned. I know I am revealing my age with that information but it really just means I am comfortable with the traditional way of doing certain things. One of these traditional ways is going inside banks to transact any financial matters. Don't get me wrong I detest standing in lines with nothing to do but stare ahead at the other tortured souls standing ahead of me. At one particular bank I stood in a line for almost thirty minutes [...]

Are used cars a better investment?

I need a new car. So I started thinking about my options. Should I buy a used car or a new car? Like many consumers, I like new cars. There is a smell that emanates from the interior of a new car that is most appealing. There is also the delight in knowing that you are the first person to own the vehicle that gives me a thrill. The exterior of a new car also adds to its appeal. The body of the [...]
