Most of us have been there a few times; the week is jam-packed with assignments and massive special projects that simply couldn’t be completed during working hours, regardless of whether it is a 40-hour work week or more.
Maybe your passion for your job knows no such boundary as a nine-to-five, 40 hour work week. In any case, it’s never wise to use weekends as extra work days for too long. Besides, you’d want to avoid burning yourself out by the time the new week rolls around so that you can be fully functional Monday through Friday. Check out the tips on how to make your weekends more successful.

What if your future was the past?
At first, I was skeptical because historical period dramas tend to get too deep into the blood and gore, but book adaptations have always been a weakness of mine.
Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling Outlander novels have been the rave ever since she published the first one more than twenty years ago. I generally knew what the series was about—a former World War II nurse being mysteriously transported back to 1745 Scotland while on her honeymoon there, in 1943. It was only after I watched the first episode that I decided to see how the screen adaptation was portrayed in the book. It was a unique concept and a slightly scary one.Continue reading

Bullying is a serious issue both locally and globally. Reports of students committing suicide under pressure from the effects of bullying have become an all too regular occurrence. Whilst there have been no such reported tragedies locally, the issue of bullying in schools is quite pervasive.
One school in the North – The Tapion School – has made its position clear on the issue with an Anti-Bullying Movement which commenced with a Kids Against Bullying event on June 28, 2018. The event featured engaging readings and thought provoking lessons by Loverly Sheridan who is a published local author of a book against bullying that is fittingly entitled ‘Be a Buddy not a Bully’. Kid- friendly performances by Ezra D’Funmachine and Teddyson John were also highligh Continue reading
Sir Arthur Lewis Community College and Entrepot Secondary were forced to share the title as rain intervened to bring an abrupt end to the final of the 2018 Massy United
Insurance Under 19 Schools’ Cricket Competition at the Mindoo Philip Park Friday 27th May 2018.
A heavy shower into Sir Arthur’s chase left the outfield unplayable, particularly at the bowlers’ run ups as the defending champions Sir Arthur chased a modest 92 for victory.
Entrepot Secondary won the toss, decided to bat and struggled to an eventual score of 91 all out off 26.1 overs. That was thanks mainly to a brave middle order knock of bold resistance by left handed batsman Craig Elisee who struck a face saving 32. Entrepot, at one stage, were reeling on 35 for five.
Doing the early damage was Man of the Match Dudley Charles, who had impressive figures of 5 for 27 in six overs. He was ably supported by Rahym Joseph, who claimed two scalps for 15 runs in eight overs. Continue reading
Every year, several beautiful young women vie for the right to be named St. Lucia’s National Carnival Queen and to wear the crown that goes with it.
Without a doubt, carnival in St. Lucia has changed over the years, and so has the Queen Pageant. If you’ve never been to one, you might think it’s simply another beauty pageant. However, it’s much more than that.
We’ve already seen the young ladies chosen for the 2018 Carnival Queen Pageant and just maybe you’ve made up your mind whom you’ll be cheering for.
The pageant has always been a staple of carnival. It brings to the whole revelry an element of elegance, royalty and sophistication that you might not necessarily get with Mas on the road. In addition, the winner goes on to represent St. Lucia at regional pageants. In the absence of a ‘Miss St. Lucia’ competition, the winner of the Carnival Queen Pageant will represent her country. It’s one of the reasons for the staging of the National Queen Pageant. Continue reading
We’ve got another interesting food that you should welcome to your diet plan!
Beets,oftencalledbeetroots,aresaidtobe an ancient food that grew naturally along coast lines in North Africa, Asia, and Europe.
Sincethen,it has been established that they are not just healthy,they are also very useful foods. Here are the reasons why you should add some beets to your diet.
They help the heart.
Beets contain the nutrient betaine. This nutrient lowers the levels of homocysteine in the body, which can be harmful to the blood vessels. Strokes and heart attacks are less likely to develop as a result. Beet greens(the leafy part) actually have even more iron than spinach (another leafy green in the same botanical family).
We hear it all the time: “Times have changed,” and this is most certainly true when we think of ‘women in business’.
Today we see women making outstanding moves in fields known to be dominated by men for centuries. However, most of us are aware that this wasn’t always the case. It’s no doubt been a long and arduous journey for women to establish themselves as equals in the labour force.
For the most part, women have come a long way from being oppressed, both in the home and the workplace. Men and women have always been at odds with each other in society. Society has been harsh to both genders, in some cases. Men have always had to keep up this façade of being the ‘one in charge’, in every situation possible. They needed to be the man of the house at home, the boss at work and nothing less than strong and masculine in between. Women weren’t the only ones with difficulties finding their footing.

The rudimentary ideas of ground-breaking advancements in technology were once reserved only for the world of science fiction. From the imaginative minds behind sci-fi classics like the Terminator, Robo-Cop, I-Robot and Chappie, to name a few – not many believed they would be witnessing the inclusion of artificial intelligence models in the makeup of our strangely modern, brave new world. In the progression of this techno-revolution that appears now to be unstoppable, sights are set on the benefits of Artificial Intelligence, trans-humanism and biometrics. In a subtle manner, it has crept in all around us. It’s in our smartphones and smart televisions, tablets and iPads, smart 3D headphones, credit cards and RFID scanners, to name a few. Yet, amidst the glamour of a promised tech-utopia, critics are sceptical over the true motives of leading technology moguls of artificial intelligence, and whether their presence will serve to benefit or deficit mankind.
