Jamaica’s current homicide rate:- 46.5 per 100,000 is the second highest in the world. We still only have a population of 2.9 million people in a geographic area no more than 11,000 km2. Jamaica became an independent nation a little shy of 60 years ago. How did we manage to achieve this unenviable position of second in the world with homicide cases?

The Downfall of Many Men

An African mental health nurse once told me that three things will destroy any good man: alcohol, gambling and women. We don’t need peer reviewed studies in some top tier journal to confirm what we already know. Irresponsible living destroys the strongest, richest of us all. Intemperate men are a danger to themselves. The unwillingness to retain control over variables that can inflict hurt or … Continue reading The Downfall of Many Men

Selecting a mate to mate with

Is this the person you want to be the mother of your children? The moment we see someone, their physical appearance speaks to us. Unconsciously or consciously, we note their physical attributes. The texture of their hair, height, shape of their face and lips as well as their size. If you’re a man, certain anatomical features get observed instinctively and the same for women.

No bright lights with huge chandeliers or ostentatious floral arrangements. I insisted that we go and … Continue reading Best Food Experience in Bath – The Circus Restaurant

Most Popular Sneakers Worn in London

Whether you take the tube, rail or bus, Hyde Park or Soho, Lewisham to Tottenham, undoubtedly these are the trainers you will see. The puzzling thing is they are extremely popular with people of all ages. Not much variety is seen in the streets so it’s almost uniformed. Another issue is the availability of large sizes. People like me with size 11 feet have a … Continue reading Most Popular Sneakers Worn in London

Black Women Are Trophies Too

“Do you date dark skinned girls?”  My brother upon meeting my now wife, asked me this question. Why would he ask if I have a preference of skin colour with who I date? Somewhere in his consciousness is this idea that some men prefer a “browning” (a “browning” is just a light skinned black person). The converse is true but not as popular as the … Continue reading Black Women Are Trophies Too
