An opportunity in a power cut

The lifts were not working in one of the Government departments yesterday because of a power cut.

It gave the civil servants in the building a wonderful opportunity to lose some calories.

Some were protesting as they walked up the steps. Others found it an opportunity to go home.

 

Ex-publisher now working for NGO

Ricardo Morris, who promised much but delivered less with his Republika magazine, is back in town in a new role.

The popular Mr Morris returned from a six-month scholarship at Oxford University in the UK. He has now emerged as the new communications officer for the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre.

A far cry from when he launched Republika magazine back in 2012.

Full credit to Mr Morris for trying that. Many wished him well. They hoped Republika would add to the diversity of the local media scene as we headed towards the elections. But Mr Morris for some reason same time went and launched a gratuitous attack on his colleagues in the mainstream print media.

The pressure was then on him to deliver on what he said.

Problem was despite all his efforts the always promising Mr Morris couldn’t walk the talk.

Republika launched, struggled then quietly disappeared.

Perhaps there could be a second coming. Mr Morris has hinted at this on his Facebook page.

We wish him well.

Perhaps this time he will do things a little differently.

 

Wellington via Auckland

If you’re going to Wellington in May be aware that national carrier Fiji Airways only has limited direct Nadi-Wellington-Nadi flights during the month.

But if these don’t suit your travel plans there’s still plenty of daily Fiji Airways options to Wellington via Auckland.

 

Police on the games beat

The recent secondary school athletics championships known as the Coke Games saw high school students roaming around the streets of Suva into the late hours.
But good to see swift Police action on Saturday night in monitoring nightclubs and chasing these youngsters home. Question is, where were the parents and guardians?
