Picked on merit

Some civil servants, who applied to be liaison officers for the Asian Development Bank annual meeting at Denarau in Nadi from May 1 to 5, got a shock.

They did not know that part of the requirement is a Police clearance.

Some withdrew because they knew they had Police records.

Others who, had forgotten, found out when they were informed that they had not passed the Police test.

The vetting process also included grooming and dress. Some failed on this count too.

Those who got through are the pick of the crop – selected on merit.
Women power

If there is one employer that recognises women power it is the Hot Bread Kitchen chain.

More than 53 per cent of its more than 630 workers are women.

And if you have not noticed, the women dominate the frontline of the business because of their customer service touch. They are also good with handling cash.

The men are good at the back  doing the baking.

A woman is also at the helm of the successful business as founder-owner-operator. Mere Samisoni is an inspiration. Sadly she has noted that some men  do not recognise women’s abilities.

Men, who are guilty, should get rid of their male chauvinism. She is speaking based on her experience in SODELPA. But she is not discouraged.

BTL understands Hot Bread Kitchen is poised to expand again as Ms Samisoni continues to soar flying the women’s flag.
Fake forum

Looks like the fake forum where people easily defamed others, spread hatred and lies may finally be suspended.

Fiji’s Exposed Forum was nowhere to be found by its admins over the weekend.

 

Following Jesus example

Sunday is their Sabbath for the villagers of Vadrai, Nakelo. Tailevu. It’s the day they rest from their labours.

But last Sunday, they took off their church garb, changed into their week-day wear, for a  compassionate service. They heeded the cry for help from the family of  Rayshal Roy who was swept away by waves during a picnic. After several hours of search his body was found yesterday.

The experience gave real meaning to the significance of the day of resurrection when Jesus Christ rose from the dead after he was crucified for the sins of all people.

One of the searchers said: “ I feel for the family and I was happy to help. I felt I was following the example of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Redeemer.”
