President of the Agricultural Society of Trinidad and Tobago (ASTT) and outgoing chairman of the National Agricultural Marketing and Development Corporation (NAMDEVCO) Wendy Lee Yuen yesterday expressed a concern that there was a “conspiracy” among rice importers to artificially inflate the price of rice.
Lee Yuen was speaking to the Express following a meeting with Legal Affairs Minister Danny Montano convened which the minister convened to discuss issues surrounding the increased production of root crops or “ground provision” as an alternative to rice. Montano had made a public call for the population to turn to root crops as an alternative to rice, as a response to the recent twenty per cent increase in the price of rice.
Lee Yuen explained that although “importers say that the rice from Belize, Suriname and Guyana, which enters Trinidad duty-free, is not of good enough quality”, those countries continue to export in huge volumes.

Pretty soon someone will start visiting your homes, spreading cheer and giving gifts. No, I am not talking about Jolly Old Saint Nicholas; I'm talking about your local politicians. The problem here is that they come bearing small gifts in turn for huge returns once they get into office. Here is how it will more… Continue reading It’s almost that time again Belize
I talk to Belizeans on the ground every day and the one thing that is certain in all the discussions is that they want a serious Alternative, not a bunch of individual units working together under a common idea. Belizeans see that as a larger more spread out version of the two party system. Currently… Continue reading The Alternative struggle in Belize

Many people confuse motion for progress. These are two completely different things.. Let's see what the dictionary says about the two: Motion: the action or process of moving or being moved. Progress: forward or onward movement toward a destination. They sound similar, but they’re not the same. Here are a few examples: I go to… Continue reading Motion vs Progress
Lolz.. Glad I’m a Minecrafter so I understand. My wife tho is like this.. 🙂
Creeper. Notch. Enderman. Griefers. Mobs. Mods. If you have a Minecrafter in your house, you’ve likely heard these words shouted — like a foreign language — from the computer room. Minecraft is EVERYWHERE. If you have an Internet connection and a 7- to… well… 45-year-old, good luck escaping it.
But if you can’t escape it, you might as well become fluent in the idiom. I did some extensive field research (aka asking my 9-year-old) to discover what the hell kids are talking about when they’re talking “in Minecraft”; what they want us to say in response; and what we will probably say instead. Here’s a rundown on how these convos are likely to go:
“Oh no! I just got blown up by a Creeper!”
Huh? This means that your child just lost everything he/she had.
What your kid wants you to say: Oh, sweetie! That’s terrible! Creepers are THE WORST…

“To understand why liberty is imperiled in our country today we must first state clearly and unequivocally what is liberty. Then and only then can we understand what is necessary for its preservation as well as see what is undermining it today. Liberty is the absence of coercion and the freedom to act upon your own will within the perimeters of not infringing the freedom of action of others. The only way that has been found among the societies of man to ensure, promote and protect liberty is through the rule of law.”

The rule of law means that government is not allowed to coerce an individual except through the enforcement of a previously known and explicitly stated principle of limited government. This principle places a limit upon the power of government to legislate by calling into question what sorts of laws are legitimate and which is not. This looks…

For the past 30+ years we find ourselves swinging back and forth between a two-party structure that has basically had one true goal of self fulfillment of their members and chosen affiliates. We have constantly been lied to and taken advantage of. Parties basing their plans on a 5 year span only, never allowing any… Continue reading Thought for the day July 1 2014
Abracadabra, what a magical phrase – not only in the way it is used by magicians to conjure their tricks but also in the many permutations of meaning attributed to it. The best-known use of this invocation of late would be the “Avada Kedavra” or “Killing Curse” in J.K. Rowling's popular magical fantasy Harry Potter… Continue reading Abrakadabra

We fear what others says we should be, what we should say and all that. We put the opinions of others before our own and as such we stop doing what needs to be done. We worry ...

I told you all back then and I'll keep saying it.. The issue was never about nationalization as in making it for the people, initially I thought it was just to get to slip a backdoor into the Constitution to give the politicians in Government all power but it seems it goes way beyond that.… Continue reading The reason BTL was Nationalized?
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his… Continue reading Even a Donkey can teach you a lesson
