Cedric Moss: More Carnival Duplicity - Jan 8, 2018 - 4:02:13 PM

Dear Editor,

Recently, Minister of Youth, Sports, and Culture Michael Pintard made a further statement on the government’s involvement with carnival. I found it contradictory, duplicitous, and confusing. Still, in the January 2, 2018 issue of the Tribune, Minister Pintard said, “There is no contradiction in our position and certainly no duplicity. We, as a government, are out. This is now a private venture that will be guided by the government through an amended commission. But for all intents and purposes, all avenues are open.” Huh? If carnival is truly now a private event...

Nimi Princewill: When your net-worth threatens your self-worth - Nov 21, 2017 - 11:08:23 AM

Society don't care what value you create. If you aren't getting rewarded with an obese paycheck, you aren't doing nothing. Well, shame on society. Finding fulfillment in the service you render (even on a volunteer job) is the biggest reward. Monetary remuneration is only an added advantage.

Every once in a while, I get approached by publications across Africa, requesting I contribute my thoughts to their platforms. I oblige for free, and it drives a few people crazy. In their words, "You write for all these publications? You must be earning a boatload..." I do imagine how terribly disappointed they get, as nothing reeks of poor judgment any worse than my usual reply, "I don't write for money."...
