Smarter card chaos

written by owen, 2014-Sep-2

They is nothing move convenient than cash. But the Jamaican urban transit company seems to want to open bank accounts for all its customers. They should just give away the cards and make it easier and faster to put money on them instead of wasting people's time.

Smoke Area

written by owen, 2013-Oct-23

Well since you basically can't smoke anywhere in Jamaica because of the new Anti-Smoking laws there are still signs that exist in some parts of Jamaica that I sure will provide some kind of loophole for smokers.

I took this picture close to St. Catherine heading to Kingston on Highway 2000.

Who shall they go after next? Jet Ski Operators? Handcart operators?


No Trespassing

written by owen, 2013-Oct-3

So there is this stretch of rough black sand beach in front of the Airport in Kingston. The beach is very rocky so there is nothing you can do there but stand around and collect pebbles. Sometimes I would go there and look at the ocean whenever I needed picked someone up from the airport. There is even a lighthouse. The NMIA seemed to have acquired funding for some new signs. Recently I noticed that a company installed swipe cards on the doors to bathrooms in a office building - there has got to be so sort of building code against that but you can't expect anything good to come from companies nowadays - its all about the money. Oppressors trying to force people underground. This my friends is the future: "Jamaica: No trespassing".

Love Clean KSA website Launched

written by owen, 2013-Aug-22

Launched a website to allow citizens to report bad street lights and public problems etc in the Kingston and St. Andrew area. The site is called Love Clean KSA - I think its a good look. This type of initiative should be implemented across the island - not only as a means of giving people who buy expensive smartphones something productive to do but also to help bring to the fore front public problems which may not be apparent to all the politicians that do not live in the constituencies that they represent.

Anyway I submitted my a fault with a sidewalk in my area and it was surprisingly approved 7 days later. I appluade this first step and I am now looking forward to seeing how long it would actually take for the problem to be fixed before someone falls into it and breaks their leg.

We should all strive to be more than ourselves and stop and look at the cracks in the road.

Gods Child commented: This is brilliant. We have a service in NYC called 311 where you can call and report stuff. Sometimes it's a little invasive though, and they want your number and name for something so simple like an open fire hydrant wasting water or a tree branch covering a sign. If I had the guts I would trim the branch myself. ... read 5 more
