Mr Davis takes a break?

Graham Davis, best known to some as a key member of the Qorvis communications team in Suva, we hear is taking a bit of a break.

The Fijian-born award-winning Australian TV journalist has recently been heading the communications team for our COP 23 secretariat. That involved much travel and international media strategy and messaging.

Qorvis Communications is a Washington based international public relations company. Two of its staff out of America have recently been based in Suva working with the Government.

And Mr Arts?

And while we’re talking media, what about  the publisher at the other paper?

Despite the announcement of his planned departure, Hank Arts is very much still in charge there.

In fact he has been singing the praises of owners Motibhai in a series of celebrations the Butt Street paper have held.

Could it be that now he is free to travel again Mr Arts could be having second thoughts? Or could it be because Motibhai are finding it hard to find a suitable replacement?

False prophets?

Voters beware. They come out of the woodwork before an election. It’s no different in this election. More self-proclaimed prophets or false prophets are emerging like this Fijian chap, who lives overseas and declares himself as a church leader. Speaking in iTaukei on social media, he claims he had dreams and predicted the Christchurch earthquake, the Samoan tsunami and Tropical Cyclone Winston, particularly the destruction on Koro Island.

Then he goes on a ramble, clearly demonstrating his animosity against the FijiFirst Government until he became incoherent and a loser.

Expect more like him on social media in the next five weeks before the country goes to the poll.

Blinking torch

Business people come up with a lot of promotional ideas to attract customers.

In Nasinu, a shop is the talk of the area. They are calling it a Kalabu ingenuity or Blinking Torch.

The shopowners turn their torch on and off as people go past the shop. When people inquire out of curiosity they are told blackmarket liquor and wine are sold there – at a reasonable price.

It saves cost for people going to Valelevu or Suva to buy liquor.

Very soon the Blinking Torch will stop when people know where to go to buy liquor at any time of the day or night.
