CARICOM’s Sugar Producers, Still Hanging In

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Last year, at this time, against the background of the commemoration of Emancipation Day across the region, I looked at the state of the sugar industry in my article titled, “CARICOM Sugar: a limping industry.”

Bartholomew de Las Casas., Thomas Manning and Walter Rodney: Some Challenges for CARICOM Reparatory Justice Movement.

On the eve of the Forty First Anniversary to commemorate the assassination of the Third World Herculean Historian/political activist, Professor Walter Rodney the associate professor at City University of New York and visiting research fellow at Centre for Reparation Research, UWI Mona Campus, Kingston, Jamaica. Ahmed Reid’s letter regarding Thomas Manning, the Founder of Manning High School was published in the Saturday Gleaner, June 12, 2021, page 6. He seizes the opportunity exorcizing the slave owner who in 1710 bequeathed his estate with its fourteen slaves at BurntSavannah, Westmoreland for a High School in the parish.

Building A Culture of Accountability

In public safety, there is no room for error. As the leader of an organization responsible for ensuring the safety of everyone who lives in and visits Broward County, it is my responsibility to ensure we hold ourselves to the highest standards of accountability. That means we not only correct areas needing improvement, but we also examine ourselves to determine if what we are doing is working and, if not, make it right. Accountability is a promise I made to you on my first day as sheriff.

Never Letting Go

You cannot force yourself on someone or force them to love you. Too many people cling desperately to relationships that have run their course, when the sparks no linger flicker and the embers have lost their glow and turned to ashes.  

Staying Safe During The Summer

Water sports, outdoor events and cookouts are just a few reasons why summer in South Florida is my favorite time of year. Whether enjoying some fun in the sun, on land or in the water, follow these safety reminders so you and your loved ones can beat the heat safely.

Family Folly

It’s often said that it’s better to have good friends rather than family, for at least you can choose your friends, but family, you’re stuck with. I count myself as being very fortunate to have been blessed to have grown up with a wonderful family, close and extended.

A Year of COVID-19: A Look Back, and Ahead

This has been difficult to write as I look back on half a million COVID-19 deaths here in the United States. I am heartbroken to say that I knew a few of those who passed away. There’s so much in life we have no control over – natural disasters being one of them. Is a pandemic a natural disaster, or is it a perfectly engineered storm that comes together when there are so many variables lining up to allow unimpeded spread?

Texas Democrats are Getting Into ‘Good Trouble’

One year after the death of the great civil rights icon John Lewis, a group of Texas Democratic lawmakers is following Lewis’s lifelong call for people to make “good trouble” and “necessary trouble” to secure equality and justice for all. Congressional Democrats should bring the same level of commitment to resisting and overturning a new wave of voting restrictions that voting rights activist Stacey Abrams has labeled “Jim Crow 2.0.”
