Matthew 24: 6-8

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Different religions interpret the bible differently. I do not profess to be any authority myself however I do believe this passage of scripture speaks for itself. For those of us who believe in the bible, Matthew 24, talks about the events which is to precede the second coming of Christ.

Morgan Heritage Undisputed Performance

The boys from St Thomas in Jamaica came to Turks and islands to deliver their message of peace, but this was cut short by showers.
Despite heavy showers in Grand Turks, the island capital the heritage putting their skills on display reeling a string of hits in the pouring rain last night October 7,2005.
It was a situation where the minister of finance promoted a very entertaining package which the patron went overboard to support.
Patrons came from all the family islands including Providenciales, South Caicos, North and Middle Caicos to understand what cultural message that the heritage had on display.
Patrons partied under heavy showers. This performance Turks islanders will never forget as they have been waiting the Second time around to be entertain by the heritage. The showers would have cut short what would be a very entertaining and enjoyable night but i believe that patrons got a good deal under the circumstances.
In the afternoon session they along with the minister of finance were on Radio Turks and Caicos been interviewed and answering question from the fans and they were preaching the love and unity message. They stated what religion stands for and was encouraging fans to seek out the truth from the bible or visit the web site of Ethiopian orthodox church.

Is the Education System Serving the Right Purpose?

IS THE EDUCATION SYSTEM SERVING THE RIGHT PURPOSE?

The Jamaican government along with their ardent supporters and spin doctors will boast about the strides made in education since slavery was abolished. Fortunately this is good, however if we are to keep pace with the rest of the world in terms of development we have a far way to go.
The “WHOLE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM” needs to be revamped and overhauled if we are to provide world class education for our people.

Who Really Run Things in Jamaican?

Yesterday October 03, 2005 the leader of the opposition Bruce Golding made a statement that still has me in disbelief. He was carried on television saying that within his constituency West Kingston there is peace for the areas that he controls however he could not speak for the areas controlled by Zeeks.
Donald “Zeeks” Phipps is the area leader otherwise known as ‘Don’ for Matthews Lane in West Kingston. He is facing two murder charges and is set to stand trial on October 24, 2005. He is also to face trial for the unlawful possession of $18 million dollars and abstraction of electricity on November 09, 2005. On November 15, 2005 he is once again to attend trial also charged with illegal possession of ammunition, unlawful possession of pharmaceuticals and possession of two pounds on ganga. Zeeks was denied bail on September 16, 2005 and is presently in prison.
All Jamaicans are aware of the controversial role played by the ‘Dons’ in some communities. However to have a potential leader of the nation concede to this publicly is frightening. If he cannot control one constituency how can he expect to control the nation?
Nuff Love

CRUEL GOVERNMENT

Post contributed by Courtney Kenlock

I am not advocate abuse of power by the authorities, I just want justice for everyone in this country but this seems far fetch. This is about the 4th time since Patterson is in charge that this cruel injustice has been meted out to the people of Tivoli. We want persons who are honest, trustworthy, sincere, just and have the country’s interest at heart to run the country. I am presently asking the people of Jamaica “TO REMOVE THIS CRUEL GOVERNMENT” from power. They have been in power for too long and have become complacent and crude. Any measures necessary must be employed to remove Patterson from office. I am not joking, this is too much now.

The Fictitious Jamaica

THE FICTITIOUS JAMAICA

It is patently obvious that a fictitious Jamaica has been created to which reference is made from time to time in glowing terms of prosperity. How else could there be talk of such good and beneficial things happening for the masses in the midst of hunger deprivation and lack? The stark reality is the books may be balanced but the average man does not feel the real trickle down effect in improved living conditions. It’s like ensuring the suitcase is shut by ripping off sleeves, collars and other protruding parts that ruefully stuck out. It’s a pyrrhic balancing exercise. Amidst the glaring shortcomings, cries of corruption and the general lowering of living standards much ado is made of so called solid achievements. The whole story is never told. There is no truth like reality.
