Sex to go in T&T - prostitutes delivered to your door

Sex sells and pros­ti­tu­tion is one of the world’s old­est pro­fes­sions.

In T&T pros­ti­tu­tion is one of the coun­try’s most thriv­ing black-mar­ket in­dus­tries.

In this Guardian Me­dia in­ves­ti­ga­tion, we take a look at this hid­den in­dus­try, which as it turns out, is not that hid­den at all.

Ac­cord­ing to Google Trends, in 2018 T&T is list­ed as third world­wide for the most “porn” search­es.

From 2011 to 2016, T&T was num­ber one on that list.

Bloody weekend - six murders across Trinidad

Six mur­ders over the week­end have pushed the mur­der toll to 30 for the year so far.

The lat­est in­ci­dent oc­curred in Care­nage on Sun­day night with the mur­der of Ja­mal Moses.

Po­lice said Moses was stand­ing along the road in Mt Pleas­ant around 8 pm when gun­men shot him sev­er­al times about the body. He died on the scene.

Moses’ mur­der fol­lowed an un­re­lat­ed dou­ble mur­der at Bangladesh in St Joseph. In that in­ci­dent, the vic­tims were iden­ti­fied as Krys­tal Heer­alal and Keron Ram­per­sad.

Shed a tear for the long weekends of 2019

Shed a tear for the long weekends of 2019.

That's because where long weekends are concerned, 2019 is as bad as it gets for Trinis.

Yep, prepare for a year without any many Friday or Monday holidays.

In fact, apart from the usual Easter weekend (which, thankfully is a fixed long-weekend each year), there's only one other holiday that can create a long weekend in T&T.

And that too isn't certain yet, because it's the Divali holiday, and it must be first declared.
