T20 Destroys West Indies Cricket?

Isn’t is amazing that cricketers that are injured for Test matches suddenly get fit for the T20’s? They probably reason that it’s too much stress playing a five-day match when they can play for four hours and make more money.

As far as Test cricket is concerned West Indies should take a break from it. The players would then have the time to rethink their game and embrace discipline. They may also want to look at the role of cricket in the social structure of the Caribbean.

The performance of West Indies against South Africa in the Tests was abysmal. We can’t change the results but what we can do is to learn from them and hopefully use the mistakes to construct a team with a fighting spirit.  Continue reading

China seeks a greater role in the Americas – By David Jessop -Commentary

The View from Europe: China seeks a greater role in the Americas
Published on January 17, 2015 –  By David Jessop
A little over a week ago the first ministerial forum between China and the Community of Latin American States (CELAC) took place. This is the grouping that includes all of the nations in the Americas other than the US and Canada, and the dependent territories.

The event in Beijing was of some significance as it demonstrated China’s strategic intent to deepen, transition, and further develop a role in the Americas in a manner that reflects a confident perspective on its future position in the world.

It followed from the endorsement of a new Chinese global foreign policy perspective in late 2014, visits last year by China’s President Xi Jinping to Brazil, Venezuela and Cuba in mid-2014, and his meeting in July 2014 in Brazil with CELAC nations at the time of the BRICS summit before he travelled on to a separate summit with President Obama in California.

Only three countries where your boss is more likely to be a woman

There are only three countries in the world where your boss is more likely to be a woman

 Nearly a third of all businesses around the world are now owned or managed by women, according to a new study by the International Labor Organization (ILO). That number is hardly something to celebrate—for reasons I will discuss in a second—but there are a few (OK, only three) parts of the globe that appear to be somewhat (yes, only somewhat) exemplary in this regard.
Jamaica, Colombia, and Saint Lucia.

No other country in the world holds a candle to Jamaica, where just under 60 percent of all managers are women, according to the ILO. Colombia, the country with the second highest percentage of female bosses, manages 53 percent. In Saint Lucia, which is third among the 106 countries for which the ILO found data, the number is 52.3 percent.
