Trinidad face à la crise humanitaire alors que de plus en plus de Vénézuéliens cherchent refuge

Lorsque Reyna Cumberbatch est sortie d'un bateau pour se rendre sur une plage déserte de Trinité-et-Tobago, deux îles des Caraïbes, elle était nerveuse mais profondément soulagée.

De retour dans son pays d'origine, le Venezuela, Cumberbatch, 23 ans, était épuisée par l'hyperinflation, la criminalité de rue et la lutte quotidienne pour se nourrir dans un pays aux prises avec une pénurie alimentaire chronique. Elle dit que la dernière goutte a été l'annulation de ses cours de programmation informatique dans une école technique après que presque tous les professeurs ont émigré.

YOUR MASTERS DEGREE IS PROBABLY WORTHLESS.
Jeremy Francis https://www.linkedin.com/

If you live on a small island in the Caribbean like me, and you have a Masters degree, MBA or similar designation, you may feel it isn't worth as much as it did a few years ago. You would be right. Programs such as Dollar for Dollar and GATE have meant that in Trinidad and Tobago, since the early 00's, many, many people have first and second degrees- in a market where there are just so many jobs.

WHY WAS T&T NOT DESTROYED YESTERDAY... A SEISMOLOGIST EXPLAINS
By Richard Charan http://www.trinidadexpress.com/

Why did Trinidad and Tobago's 6.1 magnitude earthquake leave only negligible damage, but that same day, a 6.5 magnitude earthquake devastate Indonesia, killing more than 100 and destroying buildings. It has to do with location, magnitude and geological factors, says head of UWI's Seismic  Research Centre, seismologist Dr Joan Latchman, who explained why this country was not ruined yesterday.
