Thank you, Police

Dr Gyan Prasad, Nasinu

I would like to convey my sincere thanks to the Fiji Police for the deployment of traffic control officers at all busy intersections in the Suva-Nausori corridor.

Despite the continuation of road works and school buses back on the roads, these officers have made traffic bearable during the early morning rush hour. There is a significant improvement in traffic flow compared to past months.

Keep up the good job Fiji Police!

Stick to rugby

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

The legend Waisale Serevi has given his unwavering support towards the ATS striking workers.

Mr Serevi, rather than asking them to stand on faith it would have been nice if you had encouraged them to return to work. Sir, please stay away from politics or you may be used as another pawn.

You have a special place in our hearts and it is encouraging whenever you quote a Bible verse to further solidify what you believe in.

We, your fans, prefer that you remain a rugby critic.

7s promises

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

We all want to win the Hong Kong Sevens, Commonwealth Games, and 7s World Cup. But our losses so far are worrying.

The losses are ear-splitting and we can’t go on losing.

New Zealand had to farewell people for a similar performance. Why can’t we?

Positive attitude

Spencer Robinson, Suva

Do you sometimes feel that you do not fit into the crowd?

For instance, you are at the swimming pool or beach wearing a pair of swimming shorts and a vest to hide your ‘belly fat’ (big tummy). You are among the crowd of other boys and men in their surf shorts and shirtless – proud of their slim fit abdomens or ‘6 pacs.’

And inside of you that feelings erupts – “oh how I wish to have a slim flat abdomen”.

Remember nothing in this world is impossible when you focus your mind and time to achieving a set goal, in this case, losing weight, especially around the abdomen.

It is all about having a positive mental attitude. In my previous contribution to this column I had mentioned the importance of eating sensibly and exercising regularly.

This includes reducing yaqona and alcohol intake with a view to stop smoking.

In addition, we must have regular health checks on blood sugar level, blood pressure and weight.

Losing weight and transforming those belly fat into flat and slim does not happen over night because it takes considerable time and effort. Simple exercise such as taking a 30-minute walk very day will be a great start.

You must start small and then progressively increase the distance and pace over time until that moment when you begin to jog with passion.

You can make walking even more fun and motivating with a walk buddy and that way it would not be boring to walk solo.

If you cannot afford going to a gymnasium be innovative by doing sit-ups and push-ups in the comfort of home.

Another thing that you must remember is to cut down on your food intake in a gradual manner and increase the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.

  Above all one of the greatest keys to success is being consistent at what you do because without this our goals cannot be achieved.

All in all, Anthony Robbins once said: “There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality.”

Remember never give up, stand up tall like a lighthouse and shine to make a difference. Best wishes to everyone in their  morning or afternoon walks.

7s selection

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

Our national rugby sevens coach Gareth Baber has made his choice and, as usual people are not sure whether it is a great team or not until proven on the field.

Another surprise selection is Jasa Veremalua, who many say, is not as good as he was in the past.

We haven’t seen much of the Jasa that we all know from the past year. But with the coach getting him in I believe Jasa has potential.

Vatemo Ravouvou is missing from the line-up for the first time.

Eminoni Nasilasila will provide the balance in Ravouvou’s absence.

The newcomers need to impress with their abilities and performance. Kalione Nasoko will be in the driver’s seat as he has been improving in every leg and, hopefully he has something under his hat that he will unleash on this leg.

The Sydney and Hamilton legs will be the toughest legs of all.

Fiji has been in this situation before as the underdogs. Don’t be surprised at what Fiji can do. Go Fiji Go!
