Dear Editor, I write in response to Ropeti Ale’s article titled “Samoan cultural traditions, the controversy and the God in us…” Mr. Ale, I am not sure whether to grimace, giggle, guffaw or be profoundly awed by your rhetoric.
Re: How fares Samoa Airways one year on Two big differences between the Polynesian airline days and now is that: 1) Most airfares are paid for over the internet nowadays, which cuts down the opportunities for corruption because it is all done on the computer and not face to face. No pay, no plane.
Dear Editor, Jim Acosta is not “ a messenger” your editorial implies. He is a grandstanding poor excuse for a Journalist (and that’s being nice!). He is supposed to be an objective party conveying the truth whether he likes it or not.
Dear Editor, Re: Unprofessional nurses irritate P.M. It depends… some nurses do know more than the doctors especially when you hire “cheap” doctors. My wife is a nurse and there are plenty of times she would correct the doctors.
Re: Give the nurses a break Most Samoans who have been to the hospital in their lives have a story about an angry nurse. You know it is true, Mata’afa. There would have been many Samoans around the country and the world nodding their heads when the P.M. said his piece.
Re: Unprofessional nurses First off, if nurses in Samoa are poorly trained and unprofessional then look to your ministry of health run by two men, a Minister and an Associate Minister.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M’s village bestows title This story is a silent example of begging without pride. Do you have to give away centuries of cultural, traditions and your lineage to bring business and employment?
Dear Editor, Interesting reading Minister Loau’s comments. The Minister should know better if he has this office about the causes and the solutions of this problem. He completely contradicts all tested theories about the issue.
Dear Dr. Khulmann, People choose to believe in what they deem as ‘believable’. So if L.D.S. Missionaries go about their business proselytizing in the streets of Apia using a belief system alien to yours ...then welcome to the real world . Who cares if the L.D.S are not a member of the World Council of Churches?
Re: S.W.A’s original sin It is not good business practice to publicize customers names with accounts in arrears. The S.W.A. can reduce its accounts receivable and to improve its cash flow by using a ‘simple and effective’ method.
Dear Editor, Re: “This is where we belong. This land is our grave.” This is a case where the law fails the truth. I say nothing of justice Clark who’s a young man who only reads a piece of paper in front of him so I don’t blame him.
Re: Don’t shoot the messenger, Mr. President! Nice editorial. There’s a lot to digest and to make sense of the current “pandemonium” and chaotic state of politics in the US. There is definitely quite a different mood and attitude in the country right now.
Dear Editor The United Nations Report mentioned on the front page of yesterday’s issue showing concerns about the joblessness in Samoa is a matter not to be taken lightly.
Re: Samoan traditions Malo Ale, I hope our people will wake up and understand what we’ve been trying to enlightened them for quite sometime. Christianity has made a real man (Jesus) from the metaphorical and Astrological story in the bible.
Editor, First of all, my thanks to the Afioga Gatoaitele Savea for a snippet of the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (hereafter noted as the “Church of Jesus Christ” or “Church”) in his response to Dr. Kuhlmann.
The issue of cryptocurrency is back on the agenda this week. It follows a public presentation at the National University of Samoa (N.U.S.), where an independent cryptocurrency entrepreneur from Zambia, Mapanza Nkwilimba, talked up the scheme as the way of the future. From that presentation, a story titled “Entrepreneur defends bitcoins, cryptocurrency” was published on yesterday’s front page.
National airline Samoa Airways is celebrating its one-year anniversary this month. Our reporter Yolanda Lavata’i talked to members of the public to get their views on the performance of the airline and its services.
Think a minute…If you are not having a good day, people sometimes humorously say that you “got up on the wrong side of the bed.” Amazingly, brain surgeons discovered that the brain actually has two sides and that each side thinks differently.
The problem with ideals is that we are disappointed almost every time. So to wish for better things is to be hopeless too.
P.M. on Church leaders It seems Prime Minister Tuilaepa can’t leave members of clergy alone. During a radio programme last week, he had plenty to say about Church Ministers. For instance, he reminded them that Church Ministers were only taught on spiritual matters, not on Economics.
The spears flew towards the youth on the hill, whistling as they cut through the air. Grinning, Queen Medb’s general drew his sword, eager to take back to his Queen the head of this warrior whom they called the Hound of Ulster. He had no doubt his spears would find their mark.
