Good day. My name is Eric McLean aka “English” from Kelly Village TV a YouTube channel in Trinidad and Tobago. I'm writing to ask if you'd be interested in participating in our podcast about the Caribbean and Caribbean food. This maybe of interest to those who've been to or tasted Caribbean cuisine and/or those who have services, opinions or events to promote.
For the non-Caribbean's. If you've tried Caribbean food, like it and can remember where you bought it that's all the qualifications needed to appear on this podcast.
The format is very simple. You're asked if you've ever been to the Caribbean. Depending on your answer, we'll discuss where you've been or where you'd like to go. The main topic would be what Caribbean food you've tried and like either in the Caribbean or where your from. Plus your profession and/or cause has interested the producers of the show and will make up a significant part of the podcast.
That is the show's concept. Personally I find the topics of food and tourism very interesting and would eagerly like you to take part in this podcast whether you've been to the Caribbean or not. We are not looking for food experts but people that like Caribbean food.
I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. My contact info is below.
The name of the show is “Wats ur Fav Caribbean Dish”
I'm contacting engaging people around the world from all walks of life especially personalities from MMA, football, artists, motor-sports, singers, comedians and podcasters. Unfortunately Trinidad and Tobago is not a YouTube monetized country so we cannot offer you any financial remuneration, this is done entirely out of love of food and conversation.
I'm not looking for food experts, just people who like Caribbean food. Please let me know if you interested in taking part and I'll send more info and discuss whatever time is suitable for you. If not you may know someone in your organization that likes Caribbean food and maybe interested.
KVTV started in 2009 giving people experience hosting and presenting short programs. Our most popular tourism show has over one million views and over 700 videos are hosted on KVTV.
The founder “English” was also the director of Black Shorts Video Showcase and Black Shorts Internet TV hosting the UK's first online cookery show “Low Heat” in 1997 and the UK's first online football fan show “Football London” 1999.
Black Shorts were also the visual directors for MetalHeadz, the UK's largest Drum n Bass company, from 1996 to 2000
I truly hope you're keen to be involved.
Expected runtime is anything from 20 to 50 minutes.
The podcast is similar to “Zoom”. All that's needed to participate is a phone or computer with a webcam and a good internet connection.

I just applied for a $20 slice of an $80 million class-action suit to compensate Canadian buyers for price fixing on electronics products.
In a few minutes, I filled out the online claim form, submitted it electronically and received a confirmation by email, just as the 30-second TV commercials said.
“Canada: between 1999 and 2002, people weren’t aware that they were paying too much for their electronic devices. Some memory chip manufacturers reportedly agreed to price fix. A class-action lawsuit was filed and a settlement was reached.
“If you purchased a computer, printer, game console or any other device with a memory chip between 1999 and 2002, you can now get your money back. Simply visit themoneyismine.ca and get what is owed to you.”
No receipts are required. Eligible applicants will receive at least $20 and you may receive much more if you bought electronic devices containing DRAM (dynamic random access memory) for manufacturing, resale or purposes other than personal use.
Don’t get too excited. The money could take a long time to arrive. Claims may be prorated – or scaled down – based on the total value of claims submitted.
“Accurate claims processing takes time and your patience is appreciated. We are hoping to mail out cheques in the fall of 2015,” the website says.
An administrator has to evaluate claims, complete appeals and obtain court authorization to pay the class members. Class-action payments typically occur more than a year after the claims deadline (June 23, 2015, in this case), according to my confirmation email. So, the cheque may not come in the mail for more than a year.
Jonathan Foreman is a lawyer at Harrison Pensa LLP in London, Ont., and a spokesman for four Canadian law firms that won the class-action suit.
“We nearly lost the case twice over the past 10 years,” he said. “This is a big win in the societal sense.”
Consumers will end up with $56 to $57 million of the $80 million settlement after the other costs have been paid (lawyers, claims administrator (NPT RicePoint), marketers, publicists and media partners). The distribution scheme took two years to work out.
Here are few interesting facts that came out of my interview with Foreman.
DRAM is the workhouse of memory chips. Most electronic devices purchased during that three-year period qualify for claims, including personal digital assistants and MP3 players.
Canada’s Competition Bureau did not pursue regulatory action against chip manufacturers for price fixing, as did government agencies in the United States and Europe. As a result, U.S. consumers were offered a $10 minimum recovery in a $310 million settlement, while Canadians were offered $20.
The higher minimum was needed to encourage Canadian consumers to make a claim, the plaintiffs’ lawyers said. They often hung back in previous class-action settlements, missing out on money they were entitled to receive.
“Overpriced DRAM cost consumers $9 to $11 for an average computer. We needed a higher amount to draw people in,” Foreman said.
Just a week after its launch, one of the most expensive and extensive class-action awareness campaigns in history is a big hit. Applicants are urged to send out a message on Twitter and Facebook after sending in their claim forms.
“”We’ve never had the kind of momentum we’re seeing here,” Foreman said. “Hundreds of thousands of dollars have already been claimed, but we have a lot of money in the fund.”
Those who claim $20 don’t need proof of purchase. They just have to declare that their claims information is true.
Those who bought DRAM or electronic devices containing DRAM for non-personal use qualify for a higher payout. But they need documentation, such as purchase orders, historical accounting records or record showing the budgets for electronic purchases.
Price fixing is a serious abuse. We need successful class actions such as this one to stop cartels from being created.

Don’t matter if is lil or big ABC ( where’s Terry?)
personally, no matter if u made it to phd or std 4….all that matters is that u share some experiences whether be good, bad, ugly, funny, sad….ridiculous etc etc!
Let me start!
This memory was refreshed by a few classmates not too long ago
and it was primary school😁 I start to smile as I recall it
so there was a big wedding at my neighbours and almost all the people form my little village was there ( well most of us were related) and of course the kids are all there.
The following week all of us had wedding ceremonies under the school house ( school was on posts about 4 ft high ( guessing for flood days)
So technically I have been married lots of times because after few days we had other weddings with other classmates ( what is it called when u switch partners?) The girls ‘borrowed’ our moms’ white lace half slip and tied it up with strings to make wedding dresses, we made flower bouquet and even headwear with grass. When the senior mistress son ( who was ‘married’) go and tell his mom we all got called up. She was very nice( she taught my mom in std one and 18yrs later she taught me in std one, then I became her pupil teacher after high school…She was the most inspirational person in my life ( apart from my nana) To this day her son and I are friends as is the girl he ‘married’ and she is 92 and still say I am one of her daughters….

Well..whn I started high sch, I found out that many words used in our home had a different name..haha( I guess this was because my Nani came from India n hardly spoke any English..my mom used a lot of Hindi words/terms) so Let us start..
I grew up hearing n using (some of) these :-
jaaray (shake out as in shaking our mats)
manjay- scouring as in dishes
, manjinnah -coconut husk used as dish sponge
rakhi..ashes from fireside
, baylay ..roll out dough for roti using a. BELNA (rolling pin)
goatay ..using dhal gutney (swizzle)
chaatay- lick yr fingers after eating
saanay..mix food with fingers
joota..eating food that someone else was eating,
poohar—not doing chores properly
chimta..tongs for fireside
saykay..as in putting sada roti in fireside to swell up
chilla roti ..chota or as Berbicians say, DOSAY..pancakes
LynnYuh mudda evah call u dat?? i heard my parents used this word whn dem think somebody stupid like 1 dankey!! Lord we lived in wonderful era….alld em words dis n hardly people get offended..now if u even talk lil hard..dem get highly offended like whn u chul chul n lil mischievous..we does say ‘yuh too disgusting’ .. can u imagine if we tell anyone this now?? then whn i lil troublesome..yuh parents call u shaitan!! Or ‘lil devil’ canu imagine anyone calling a lil kid this nowadays. [ more ]
Yes, avoid that. Let me hear from the Russians concerning Ukraine. To the world, America is a jail with uninvited cell mates to share and this is how their sociology is to keep secrets in a shell. Houses are jails with keys to get in and out at will. They can't put Cuba and North Korea in their jail but they have me and you in it. We have to open God with a key to get out because he is our jail cell. Our trust has put us in this situation.

Intelligence prevented the spirit from grazing and took control of it. Because of this harm to the body happens like old age and heart problems. It has to graze to control intelligence. Movement of the clothes on the body when you walk is one way of grazing. Graze rhymes with craze, the state it may be in.
Theory of time is truth they control the world with. They acquired this with the death of Christ wrongfully.
The media seems to be supporting and not just broadcasting the fighting in Ukraine instead of showing their disapproval of harm. I guess they don't want Ukraine or America to look bad since an excuse for military engagement has been made as being injustice.
Share you favourite foods...what you like to cook and or eat.
I love to cook although not everything I cook I like to eat. I made shepherds’ pie last week and although everyone loved it all I had was a bite. Same goes for lasagna. I made apple curry yesterday and still thinking if I will eat any. Also, made lamb stew which I love.

This is my addition to the article. the article should also be in political for those who read there and have animals.
I once saw a talk by this vet Dr Schultz, I remember him mentioning when he brought this to the forefront the fact that animals did not need to be inoculated every year, it took them about twenty years to change it to three. With more testing he again brought out the fact once an animal has received certain shots they did not need boosters....it is still being done. Below are snippets of what is in the article.
Veterinary immunologist Ronald Schultz PhD chaired the University of Wisconsin’s Department of Pathobiological Sciences. He spent his career as a veterinary immunologist at the forefront of vaccine research.
The vaccines Schultz studied include …
Canine distemper vaccine
Canine parvovirus vaccine
Feline panleukopenia vaccine
In a 1999 paper, Dr Schultz outlined the duration of immunity for several vaccines. In other words … how long they will protect your pet.
Even now, long after research proved most vaccines last for life … the AAHA guidelines are still so tentative. What could be holding the AAHA back from making stronger statements or setting stronger enforcement policies?
The answer may lie in their sponsors. In 2021 their sponsors are 3 major vaccine manufacturers: Boehringer Ingelheim USA Inc., Merck Animal Health, and Zoetis. And of course, the veterinary members of the task force also have a vested financial interest in more frequent vaccination.
Isn’t this a potential conflict of interest that could create bias in the task force recommendations?
It certainly looks like there’s been a lot of compromise. And the problem with compromise is that nobody really wins. Especially not dogs.
Annual vaccination began without any scientific evidence to support it. And why is the AAHA now stuck at 3 years … when research shows DOI of at least 7 years for core vaccines? Dogs deserve better than this. Until the AAHA stops compromising and catches up to current vaccine efficacy research, the most important compromise could be our dogs’ health.
WildflowerWell I do love my 2 dogs…. cainstah I don’t think u met Clover the golden doodle…but u have met gunner the big boy ( he be 12 soon) well for yrs he got his shots and then he got bad hives and would scratch until he bled so they put him on steroid for mths ( prednisone) after few yrs I stopped vaccine and he is fine.

we had 4 prs of working bulls..to plough, rake n even mash rice..this way they were not overworked…my father took good care of his animals..he used to ‘bathe’ thebulls at end of the day n he spoke to them n gently stroked their bodies as he washed their skin.

It’s quick and easy and oh-so-tasty any time of year. Be warned, the shrimp cook FAST! Be careful not to overcook them – over-cooked shrimp are rubbery, tough, and just blah. Cook the shrimp, stirring frequently, until the shrimp are nice and pink and opaque. Then, get them out of the skillet!
1 lb Shrimp, shelled and deveined
21 tbsp Olive oil
4 Cloves garlic, minced
⅛ tsp Red pepper flakes (optional)
1 tbsp Cilantro, chopped
1 tsp Honey
3 tbsp Fresh lime juice (approx. 1 1/2 limes)
1 tsp Lime zest
½ tsp Salt (or to taste)
½ tsp Fresh ground pepper (or to taste)
¼ cup Gin
Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on or off to your preference.
In a medium-sized bowl (or a large resealable plastic bag). Combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, cilantro, honey, lime juice, lime zest, salt, and pepper. Give it a good whish (or squish) to combine all the ingredients.
Add the uncooked shrimp and toss to ensure all the shrimp are covered with the marinade. Put the bowl (or bag) in the fridge and let the shrimp marinate for 15 to 20 minutes. Don’t go longer than 20 minutes.
When you are ready to cook, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Using a slotted spoon remove the shrimp from the marinade.
Add the drained shrimp to the hot oil and cook quickly for 2 minutes, flip, and then add the marinade to the skillet. Let it cook for 30 seconds and then add the gin to the skillet. It will sizzle and steam. Scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pan to deglaze it and continue cooking for about 2 minutes or until the shrimp are opaque and orange-pink. Do not overcook!
Adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Remove the shrimp from the pan and cook the sauce a minute or two longer to reduce, if desired OR use the sauce the way it is and pour it onto your rice or noodles.
Serve immediately over rice, rice noodles or zucchini noodles topped with additional cilantro and garnished with lime slices.
