New-Year’s Resolutions 2019

Neelz Singh,  Lami

 

Here’s a New Year’s resolution anyone can keep: Resolve not to make any more New Year’s resolutions.

Now, wasn’t that easy?

If you’re trying to pay your credit cards, quit smoking, get a new job, find a mate or shed some excess poundage, abandoning New Year’s resolutions won’t get you off the hook.

But by setting more realistic goals for yourself and not limiting yourself to a once-a-year, do-or-die, all-out assault on that debt, those flabby thighs or the hideous wallpaper you keep meaning to replace, you may find that the finish line isn’t so far away after all.

Or as the Rolling Stones put it, “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try some time, you just might find you get what you need”.

 

Nadi Administrator

Ronnie Chang, Nadi

 

Nadi must be thankful for Special Administrator Robin Ali.

In his youthful years he served Nadi well.

The township of Nadi, poised on the brink of attainment of city status, needs a younger, vibrant, energetic, highly-qualified successor.

Nadi is developing at a rapid and admirable pace.

The municipality boundary is marked for due expansion.

The new Special Administrator must be able to work closely with our own Chamber of Commerce and be able to effectively network with the Mecca of Fiji tourism, Denarau.

Nadi needs someone in the mould of the Capital City, Suva’s Chandu Umaria, who ably led his team to lift the surrounds of the Capital to what it is today.

Again, respectfully, Robin Ali has seen better days.

Admirably, it is time to now step aside for a younger, vibrant,  energetic and well-qualified successor who will effectively take us forward, 20 brighter years and beyond.

 

Stuck in the cyclone

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

They say when you sign up for compassion then, obviously, you’re going to have homework.

While the SODELPA camp continues with their internal bickering our Prime Minister is visiting evacuation centres, distributing groceries and milk for the younger ones.

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. Where is Biman Prasad and his close friend Mr Rabuka? Let’s not make assumptions, probably they are stuck in the cyclone.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be.

 

$6.64m bluefin tuna

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

 

Self-styled “Tuna King” Kiyoshi Kimura bought a 278kg Bluefin Tuna for a record US$3.1 (F$6.64m) at an auction in Tokyo’s new fish market.

The main reason for the high price is because Bluefins are severely depleted. Bluefin Tuna spawn just once a year and do not reach reproductive maturity until they are 8-12 years old, which makes them more vulnerable to overfishing compared with other tuna species that can spawn several times in a year.

The International Union of the Conservation of Nature continues to list them as endangered.

The world’s appetite for Bluefin Tuna just might end up devouring this diamond of the sea.

We sure have an appetite for destruction!
