• From Anton Hermans on Opinion: CXC troubles again

    Indeed, CXC announced that the 2022 CSEC and CAPE examinations will be postponed for three weeks (https://www.nationnews.com/2022/04/27/cxc-exams-postponed-three-weeks/)

    However, CSEC Visual Arts will continue as scheduled and commence this week.

    The 2022 examination results will be released late August / early September. Students who wish to continue to study in The European part of The Netherlands, will not be affected by the delayed results. They can still leave to pursue their choice of studies as soon as they have written their final exam. (if they meet the graduation criteria of course). Students entering other tertiary educational institutions should inform the college/university of their choice as soon as possible to avoid deregistration.

    The Ministry of Education has informed us that they will extend the special law which is in effect since 2021 to allow students who write the 2022 examinations to provide a copy of their diploma between September and December 2022.

  • From Cristian Hassell Feliciano on Young people debating discrimination, racism

    Obviously White People who actually have a Racist Bone within them will never admit that Racism exists : that is “everywhere.” Now, do not get me wrong, there are many White People or Caucasians like the Kennedys and Clintons and Algore’s, and many more other White people who may not be so famous, who fight against Racism and are against it and hate it because they know it is wrong. But we all must strive to emancipate ourselves from Mental Slavery, such as racism is a mental slavery. Only ourselves, each one of us personally and individually can free our minds and live with natural love and have unconditional faith in what is good and right and in God. Hence forth God the Creator, created All Men Equal. No one is better than someone else, Rich is not better than the Poor and no Race is superior than another race by color or Physical features everyone is unique and beautiful. I actually see it wrong for a human being to posses so much wealth while another human being can not even make ends meet……This is a grave wrong that exists in the human race, the inability to share and help one another. The Rich will obviously defend their cause for having so much and make excuses not to use their wealth to help the poor because they want to remain and feel superior when deep in their hearts they know that they are not superior, what they really are doing is suppressing and oppressing other people because of their wealth, institutions do this, Governments do this, Company’s do this, Nation’s do this, just look at what Russia is doing to Ukraine, is perfect example of what is going on in the Whole World of suppression and Oppression.

  • From Lisa on Saba exports more than 1M pounds recyclables

    Just wondering…

    what the current legal impediments to implementing a Saba environmental protection import surcharge on some of the classes of imports which are consistently causing Saba garbage export costs, especially plastic, are

    roughly how many Saba residents and organisations would want to get roughly how much chopped cardboard delivered roughly how often to their plots

    whether the mulcher already purchased by the Saba government is appropriate for chopping cardboard boxes to use as mulch or to mix with kitchen scrap compost

    And neither one of the above commenters are the aforementioned young people dealing with racism and gender discrimination. So, yeah, your remarks are irrelevant.

  • From Christine Meyer on Saba exports more than 1M pounds recyclables

    I am so so happy to get this update!!! Who knew this was happening. Last time I read an update there was barge coming from Statia to pick up our “stuff”. There must be a more economical way to return containers to Florida that are emptied on SABA!! Do companies want their return. Certainly we can return them for a “best” rate? We need to do much better at getting more items out of the burn pile!! Everyone take note! Let’s get even move items out by composting and recycling!!! Luke!!! How can you use compost for your gardens???

  • From Capt. Jack Sparrow on Young people debating discrimination, racism

    When I saw this story, I was thinking of all my ancestors on Saba who grew up dirt poor and WORKED to improve their living conditions and made something of themselves and then their children followed in their footsteps to continue their legacy. There was no “white privilege”. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid nonsense spewed by the left that want everything given to them with no work ethic.

    What a total leftist sham. I see the pseudo intellectual leftist poison created in American universities has unfortunately permeated itself into the Caribbean.
