With a couple of Chief Executive roles available in the Government, the closing time for those shooting to become a brand new C.E.O. and also those thinking that they can be re-appointed is up. They have thrown their hats in the ring now.

Nature is water. And we can only flow with it. There is on the south side of our paradise island, a village that looks out to the sea as if it is guardian to it. The villagers make merry of daily tasks, cooking, feasting, weaving, fishing, child raising, and mindlessly living sometimes, but also breathing in the air of freedom.
It’s late night. Three a.m. Times like these are sacred. Except for the swirling fan, the sound of rain and darkness outside is revolving.

I’ve been asked to shed light on the emerging challenges of Human Rights in Samoa/ and the approach of the country in addressing them/ in approximately four to five minutes. ---I know you are keen to see the movie, so I will aim for three minutes.
As we fast approach the end of 2018 and envelop ourselves in the spirit of the festive season on Christmas and New Year celebrations, we need to spare a thought or two for the Samoa delegation these two weeks in Katowice Poland in the collective pursuit by developing countries for a climate package of decisions that ‘leaves no climate related issues behind’.
Today, we celebrate 10 years Anniversary of service of the Samoa Law Reform Commission to our people and Government. Its establishment in October 2008 was a significant milestone for Samoa.

A few weeks before the Government’s ban on single-use plastic bags becomes effective, the question of a workable alternative to allow these small business owners to continue their operations has been raised. And rightly so.
Dear Editor, Re: Disappointing results The long awaited results for national exams this year have again come with great disappointment. For a few years now our national examinations have been a nightmare.
The heavy downpours of late have damaged a lot of road infrastructure in Samoa. Motorists in most parts of the country are having to navigate the multiple potholes and some of the more challenging road conditions that exist.

Reporter Yumi Epati Tala’ave asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:
Think a minute...Tragically, fathers are becoming a vanishing breed. Statistics show that millions of children are growing up like orphans because their fathers simply reproduce themselves and leave, rather than staying home to love and raise their son or daughter.

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.
