FIFTY years ago TT won the West Indies Cricket Board regional series for the first time. It was on March 22, 1970, that the local team bowled out Jamaica in their second innings at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain, for 113, achieving victory by 219 runs. It was the fourth year of the relatively new competition which was sponsored by the Shell Oil Company.
AS TT deals with covid19, people have had to familiarise themselves with terms such as "social distancing,” “self-isolation” and “quarantine.”
But these precautions are not new to the country. History provides some not-too-distant examples of these and other measures adopted to deal with issues of public health and safety.
AS the world continues to grapple with the covid19 pandemic, international psalmist Chevelle Franklyn has released her latest tracks, Go In Your Strength alongside a bonus track iPrevail, to uplift spirits.
The bonus track, part of her upcoming album South Wind: Volume 1, is "a song for the times," said a media release. The song song states:
IN normal circumstances manager of Shiva Boys Hindu College cricket team Shane Lutchman, along with other members of the coaching staff, would have been guiding their players in the PowerGen Intercol T20 competition. However, Lutchman is now trying to help some of his players and their families that have been affected by covid19 with the distribution of hampers.
THE covid19 pandemic has been affecting many people in different ways. But how has it been affecting athletes and other employees in the sporting world?
