Face husk
With the shortage of face masks in shops, people are improvising. This version is made out of coconut husk. As long as it stops the spread of covid-19, who are we to laugh at him?
Fully paid
Imagine staying at home with your family for four weeks fully paid. New Zealand PM has just announced that arrangement for non-essential workers around that country yesterday.
Media vital
NZ PM Jacinda Arden yesterday stressed the importance of the role of the media at times of crisis such as this. She listed the media as one of the essential services. So right.
Duty calls
Spare a thought for our front-line teams especially health workers who have to leave their families at home to care for others.
Test first
There was a bit of commotion at the main entrance to a big shopping mall in Port Moresby at the 9am opening time when customers were told to queue up to be tested before they could enter. Because it was something new, some did not like it.
Too much gossip
This may happen to women who spend the day gossiping.
Thought for today
The greatest man ever to live is Jesus Christ. He had no servants but they called him Master. He had no degree but they called him Teacher. He had no medicines but they called him Healer. He had no army but kings feared him. He had no military battles but he conquered the world. He committed no crime yet they crucified him. He was buried in a tomb yet he is alive today.

“The measure of a country’s greatness is its ability to retain compassion in time of crisis.”
