  • Time has come to weed out society’s bad apples.

    Time has come to weed out society’s bad apples.

    Have we sunk to a new low? It seems that we have. A bredren of mine went to a wedding recently, when what to his wondering eyes did appear, but a group of men smoking weed, in full view of the wedding party, adults, children; all of this at a church!
    My boy was repulsed to see, and smell, weed being smoked at a wedding, as was I to hear the story.

    Strike — the other side of the story

    I wish to send a news flash to many employers and others who don’t understand unions or how to deal with them. The keys to effective industrial relations are communication, proactive communication, knowing the collective bargaining agreements and patience.
    In my submission last week I neglected to give the other side of a particular story and in the spirit of balanced and fair journalism I have an opportunity to do this.

    Workers who downed tools just don’t get it!

    I wish to send a news flash to many members of the workforce, especially folks like the Works and Engineering employees who went on strike for a worker who broke the rules and the Marine and Ports staff who are objecting to the Government bringing in the Millenium ferry.

    Fathers have a cruicial role to play

    This weekend is Father’s Day and I thought that this would be an opportunity to salute the fathers who are doing a great job and encourage those for whom there is room for improvement to do better.

    I’m calling Bermuda out over its political immaturity

    I’ve been watching and listening to the news as well as the debated in the House of Assembly over the last week, and went to my trusty RG website for same, when I happened upon a poll that asked if the Premier, and two Cabinet Ministers, were right to take a trip on a private jet to meet with potential developers.

    Words of wisdom from the guy in the Jaguar

    Back in the 1990s I was working for the Department of Tourism. Among the many projects I worked on was the Spring Break Programme. I had to go around to US colleges inviting young people to come to Bermuda for their Spring Break. I know; great job.

    Our tourism product is way behind!

    Last week, whilst everyone else was celebrating the maiden voyage of the new cruise ship, I was sadly realising how far our tourism product has fallen.
    Listening to the news on that inaugural voyage morning, I realised that this cruise ship has a waterpark, several restaurants, more activities and possibly more things to do than our entire island.

  • Where are the jobs?

    Where are the jobs?

    I took a quick look at The Royal Gazette’s website this week and other online sources and counted some 50 jobs advertised.
    Granted some of them might be work permit renewals but if qualified people don’t apply, they will always need work permits. But that’s just a quick look. If I looked really hard I’m sure I could find more.

    The jobs are out there for the good worker

    Last week I asked the question ”Why people don't want to work after 5pm?“ This week's question is ”Why can't some people find a job?“
    I have an idea why some can't, just hear me out.
    I was talking to a buddy the other day, who, even in a recession, has a part time gig. This dude is a hustler, knows how to make a dollar, and is humble enough to do whatever it takes to provide for his family.

    Why don’t people want to work after 5pm?

    I must start by wishing my son Johnathan a very happy birthday today — May 3.
    I’ve noticed that many people don’t want to work after 5pm. There are a number of persons who think that if their working hours are 9-5, that is all that they should do.

  • Do we have the political will to tackle gun crime?

    Do we have the political will to tackle gun crime?

    A few days after the Boston debacle, I told a few friends that I expected the US authorities to eventually find whoever did this. I knew, even from TV programmes, that there was CCTV all over the place, there are satellites that observe your every move, the international intelligence community is connected, they track and trace your actions from credit card sales, cellphone usage; and you basically have to conclude that ”big brother is...

    Let’s pray for peace both here and abroad

    The tragic and awful scenario that unfolded in Boston Massachusetts earlier this week has reminded me that Bermuda is a blessed little Island.
    We get the occasional hurricane but we are fortunate to have been spared from major disaster.
