Brothel news
The operation of brothels in urban areas is just one of the many underground activities going on right under the noses of police, a reader says. There are also prostitution rings, drug and human trafficking rackets.
Missing letter
It is often seen in newsroom copies. Words are often misspelt through the omission of a letter, such as “l” in public. It can be embarrassing if it is not picked up by the sub-editors.
Kind gesture
A man offered to pay for the groceries a woman had in her shopping trolley at a city supermarket when he heard tell the cashier she did not have enough cash to pay for everything. Touching.
Porgera opening
Many businesses are hoping that, as PM Marape promised, the new Porgera mine will be opened next month. It will be a big boost to, among other benefits, the foreign exchange situation.
It’s fake
At first glance, it certainly sounds like a good bargain. But on a closer look, it is telling you to buy two burgers instead of one. Fake promotion.
True allegiance
NRL star Andrew Fifita is reported to be thinking of forgoing his Tongan allegiance if an Indigenous side is sent to the World Cup. He is not serious, right?
Cup squad
The 15 NRL players named in Fiji’s World Cup squad are Maika Sivo, Semi Valemei, Isaac Lumelume, Mikaele Ravalawa,Waqa Blake,Taane Milne, Braydon Wakeham, Apisai Koroisau, Sitiveni Moceidreke, Tariq Sims, Viliame Kikau, Jacob and Daniel Saifiti, Tui Kamikamica and Kane Evans. Great line-up.
Thought for today
Your most powerful asset is not a head full of knowledge but a heart full of love, ears ready to listen, and a hand willing to help others.
