The T-Factor

Floyd Robinson, Suva

Around Tanoa sessions, a number have been discussing the X-factor in our national sevens rugby team as they seek to conquer the Las Vegas Sevens Tournament.

Whatever one’s views, I think it’s more of a T-factor. We must play together as a team.

Once we lose sight of this we will begin to disintegrate like we did against Australia and New Zealand before a nightmare performance against England.

Meanwhile, what happens if there is disagreement between a coach and manager? For example, if a coach wants players to rest early, but manager wants them to stay up a little later at night. All in all, we are only as good as when all members work together as a team. Go Fiji go.
Minister of Health

Tukai Lagonilakeba,  Nadi

Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete fits his portfolio very well as a Medical Practitioner, a true professional and walks our Government’s talk. He is young, smart, energetic, enthusiastic and a true servant of our nation.
Plastic levy

Pushp Chand Dass,  Rakiraki

Plastic has become part of life for any individual in this world and Fiji is no exception.

Most people have a use for plastic everyday. From a lolly to a smoke packet. From a packet of salt to a packet of Twisties, from diapers to condoms. May sound funny, but it’s a fact. From chicken packs to prawn packs. Doesn’t it seem that the end result is customers are being victimised into paying the plastic levy?

Could someone in authority clarify what sort of plastic levy is paid by these other people who use plastic, which we also throw in the bins and end up in our oceans?
Burning artefacts

Steven Chandra,  Suva

The burning of artefacts in Lautoka for spiritual cleansing, is of significance to these people. Since it was decided by the church elders, it’s in relation to New Testament book of Jude 23 (hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.) Though these items are dead, so is the garment mentioned therein!
Power of words

Dharmendra Kumar,  Suva

The words that we hear from others have a profound influence on our thoughts and actions. Negative, critical, and discouraging people have a negative impact on our lives. We need to make sure we are helping people do right rather than holding them back by our words
Negative change, positive gain

Devlin Chung,  Brisbane, Australia

It is amazing that society is bred through human ecology of daily thinking and actions of negative reactions and spasmodic positive interactions.

Reactions are the afore-mentioned responses without much thought of the consequences of the cause and effect of individual expectations. Society is engulfed with negative reactions all due to a lack of understanding and knowledge that negativity will not derive positivity in any shape or form.

It will in fact drive away relationships and will not be too easily reined in at a whim. It is said that negative thoughts and portrayal of reactive emotions depicts a precarious mind lacking knowledge, tolerance, love and respect for fellow human beings in the way we were exposed and brought up to grasp this status in life.

Whenever we walk the path of venting anger, displeasure or criticism of events and people or disagreements during our lives, it reflects the very vulnerable mindset of being too easily blinded or misguided without the knowledge and wisdom to solve problems in our journey of development and existence.

One needs to view one’s image in front of a mirror and decide whether that person is depicting a nice and unobtrusive character!

If not, we have the unenviable task to change it because it is affecting our personality.
