Dr Myrton Smith


The president of the Medical Association of Jamaica endorsed a call from the Ministry of Health for Jamaican women to delay pregnancy for another six to 12 months because of the possible impact of ZIKV which seems almost certain to fly to our shores.


Everald Warmington


The controversial member of parliament for St Catherine South West hit the front pages as he used a sitting of the House of Representatives to label Minister of Youth and Culture Lisa Hanna a 'Jezebel'. Under pressure, Warmington defended his action arguing that Hanna provoked him.


Usain Bolt


It's no secret that his prowess on the track has transferred to his bank account, and last week it was revealed that he earned more than J$2.5 billion for the year. This was the icing on the cake for the star athlete who had copped the RJR 2015 Sportsman of the Year award days earlier.


Chris Gayle


As if his public flirting with a television reporter was not enough, the hard-hitting batsman took to his Instagram page and blasted his critics in a stinging rant.


Juliet Holness


The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate for East Rural St Andrew was formally introduced last Sunday and immediately made it clear that she was prepared to capture the seat for her party.


Audley Shaw


The former finance minister was given a strong endorsement by his party leader for his performance in the 2007 to 2011 period, with a promise that he will be back in his old job if the JLP is elected to form the next government.
