Thank you for stopping by.
After conversing with people from various countries around the world, I have come to the conclusion that few people properly investigate an issue before forming an opinion. Public opinions therefore are not generally based on facts but persuasive debate, and opinions can change when persons are exposed to a more persuasive debater. In this way, people become convinced not through facts but by persons who can skillfully manipulate language or by the charisma of popular personalities.
I am at perhaps the most productive time of my career, and I feel this longing to give humanity something invaluable. I have and continue to dedicate most of my working life to solving problems through observation, analysis, research and design in the field of Engineering. Researching an issue is time consuming, and it may be challenging for every person to research the issues given the increasing demands on our time. My gift therefore is to present researched information to you.
I have entitled this column “Weighed in the Balance” because I propose to identify interesting issues, research them, and present my findings. It is intended to be a public service to the people of Barbados and beyond. I highly value your time and will try to convey my ideas concisely.
