Floops Festival Episode 03 (#FF03) is 26 song podcast curated by my own manager, OA Management. This mix follows from the mellow vibe set in #FF02. I asked her why she chose such sad songs to which she remarked that she just liked eerie music. Of course, if you grew in late 90s and 2000s, these songs ithinould be of no surprise to you. Many of these songs don’t depend on the beat but have powerful lyrics and deep meanings. My pick of the mix will definitely by Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics. I love the synthesizer and Annie Lennox is one of the best contralto voices of all time. When I asked my manager what is her favorite song, she stated both the original and Lost Frequencies Remix of Armin van Buuren’s In and Out of Love…arguably his best song to date.

Millionaire real estate and used car dealer Sheron Sukhdeo lived his life in the fast lane. He loved fast money, gold jewellery and fast cars. This was evident in the posts he made on social media showcasing his luxury vehicles and racing cars. But while police probe a possible family link to his death, officers of the Central Division police said members of the Rasta City gang of Beetham Gardens were planning to kill Sukhdeo years ago, even though he was well protected by members of the main rival Muslim gang. In 2016, an attempt was made on his life but he escaped. Sukhdeo is reported to also have had several police officers on his payroll and used them also to keep his enemies at bay. Despite the murder attempt, Sukhdeo took precautions to protect his family. Members of the Muslim gang knew Sukhdeo well and became his bodyguards. He helped one of the Muslim gang leaders to set up a car dealership in Laventille, which was financed by money launderers and the drug cartel. Despite the threats on his life, Sukhdeo, 33, would be seen walking in Charlieville and along Caroni Savannah Road Chaguanas, where he operated his business. He flashed his wealth by wearing lots of gold jewellery and even bought a private plane. He travelled frequently abroad with his wife Rachael and in one Facebook post, Rachel was seen posing with American reality television personality Kim Kardashian. They had been together since Rachael was 14 and he was 16. They got married two years later and had two children. However, their marriage became the subject of public scrutiny since 2016, when Rachael posted photos of herself showing injuries she suffered during a beating from Sukhdeo. He was charged twice for assault in February 2016 and later in May 2017 but the charges were dropped after his wife refused to testify. On January 11, Sukhdeo posted a meme featuring Colombian drug lord and narco-terrorist Pablo Escobar, whom he admired. The post read, “I can replace things but I could never replace my wife and kids.” Like Escobar, Sukhdeo wanted to share his wealth with the poor, having experienced financial difficulties himself before he went into business. During the recent floods, Sukhdeo distributed hampers. Police said they were bracing for reprisal killings following the death. WIFE TAKEN TO HOSPITAL Two days after Sukhdeo was gunned down near her parent’s home, Rachael Sukhdeo was taken to the Chaguanas Health Facility after suffering from a medical complication. Homicide officers said around 10 am, Rachael was taken to a health facility where doctors had to give her emergency treatment. Her two young children have been staying with her parents as police try to find the people behind Sukhdeo’s untimely demise. Region Three Homicide officers are continuing investigations into Sukhdeo’s death. Source: www.guardian.co.tt
The Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) is $1.5 billion behind annually in meeting its financial commitments, of that amount $900 million is owed to the National Gas Company for natural gas which is used by the three power generating plants to generate electricity. T&TEC officials appeared before the Joint Select Committee on Local Authorities, Service Commissions and Statutory Authorities, along with officials of the Ministry of Public Utilities and the Regulated Industries Commission yesterday. T&TEC general manager Kelvin Ramsook made a case for a rate increase. Ramsook, responding to questions from the members of the JSC, observed that when the Commission received its last rate hike in the period 2006-2011 “we did meet all our commitments,” but he said, “beyond 2011 we started running into problems and it got more difficult to meet our commitments.” T&TEC purchases gas from the NGC which it supplies to three power producers Trinity, Powergen and TGU to generate electricity. The Committee heard that it costs T&TEC 25 cents to produce a unit of electricity, and the utility sells electricity at 36 cents per unit, “that margin between 36 cents and 25 cents is what is used to deal with administrative expenses, including salaries and wages,” the committee heard. Ramsook said 65-67 per cent of T&TEC’s costs is for conversion related to generation, “23 per cent of the cost is salaries and wages and the difference is where you buy material and so on.” Executive Director of the Regulated Industries Commission Dr James Lee Young said the fact that because several years had passed since T&TEC had its last rate review had contributed to the Commission “running a deficit, between the cost of what they sell and the actual cost of operation,” that is why, he said, there is need for rate reviews to be done on a regular basis. According to the RIC Act, such reviews must be done “no later than every five years,” Lee Young said. But Committee member Nigel De Freitas expressed concern that the Commission could be “more profitable” if it looked at reducing its dependence on natural gas and look at the use of solar farms to generate electricity. Ramsook said T&TEC “has constantly been looking at technology.” Currently, he said, T&TEC’s rate which is four cents per kilowatt hour “is the lowest in the world, when you look at other options you get a different result.” T&TEC assistant general manager Courtney Mark noted that the Commission did give consideration to solar farms, which he said would mean the installation of 150 megawatts of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells to convert sunlight directly into electricity. Mark said, “When we looked at the economic payback period it would take 20 years approximately and the amount of acreage required is 1,500 acres of land.” But Mark said while solar power would save 12 cents per unit on gas it will not provide the capacity for peak demand, “at night when you need electricity.” T&TEC chairman Keith Sirju said currently two per cent of the population do not receive an electricity supply because of issues of “remoteness and viability. We are looking at the feasibility of using solar power for those very remote areas where maintenance cost is very high.” He identified those areas as “the extremes of Blanchisseuse and some other parts of the island.” The almost 3,000 households without electricity, Sirju said “may be a captive market for the solar energy. A project is being considered as to whether electricity can be supplied in that manner for that two per cent.”

WHILE his friends and enemies alike have been pouring out their hearts since his murder in Chaguanas on Monday, a family in the nearby village of Freeport is praying that whoever inherits Sheron Sukhdeo’s multi-million dollar estate, would not seize their $1.5 million property.
In 2015, Mankad Mathura, 59, had no money to buy life-saving drugs to treat his cancer and he went to Sukhdeo for a loan of $45,000.
On November 23, 2015, Mathura was made to sign an agreement by Sukhdeo’s attorney, which required him to repay the loan in 30 days or give up his two lots of land valued $1.5 million. He died three days later.
Since then, his three daughters have been making attempts in the San Fernando High Court to stop Sukhdeo from seizing the land.
A clause in Sukhdeo’s agreement with Mathura states that if he died, whoever in Mathura’s family is in line to inherit the land, is bound to give up possession.
Another states any money or taxes owed to the government must be borne by Mathura’s inheritors and not Sukhdeo.
Within days of his death, Sukhdeo went onto the land and attempted to take possession.
After Mathura’s family buried him, they went to attorney Subhas Panday who filed a lawsuit, on behalf of Mathura’s daughters Nisha Mathura-Ragbir, Stephanie Mathura-Fredericks and Shelline Dwarika, against Sukhdeo’s move to take possession.
The daughters said they acknowledged the agreement between their father and Sukhdeo, but stated that their Mathura died on December 26 before he could repay the sum.
They said their father was suffering for a number of years and when he made the agreement with Sukhdeo in the attorney’s office, his condition had worsened. “He therefore had insufficient and/or did not have the requisite mental capacity to make the agreement,” they contend.
They are also claiming that Mathura did not have independent legal advice when he made the agreement. They want a judge of the High Court to declare the agreement null and void and of no effect.
The case is scheduled for hearing early next month. When asked about the status of the matter yesterday, having regard to Sukhdeo’s murder on Monday, Panday said, “I cannot discuss my clients’ business publicly without their permission, but the matter is being pursued in court.”
A worker at the Aripo Lifestock Station took a short walk to a pond to relieve himself around 10 am Monday when he came across a startling discovery. A 12-foot anaconda was just about to have itself a meal, on 7-foot caiman and was applying the final act of constriction before it prepared to swallow the animal whole. The worker called other workers who began recording video via their cell phones. SEE VIDEO One of them used a piece of wood to prod at the animals and the anaconda then made an escape leaving the dead caiman. Animal Health Assistant Neshal Rampersad told us that while they are accustomed to seeing Macaquel snakes, they never saw an anaconda there before. President of the Zoological Society Guptee Lutchmedial says the anaconda could very well have over-estimated his appetite. He tells Guardian Media that the caiman is a normal part of the anaconda diet. He added that the anaconda will sometimes eat a large caiman and die in the process because they can’t digest an animal that size. The Anaconda is the world’s largest snake and is found in parts of South America and in Trinidad and Tobago. The video was uploaded to Facebook by Yohann John.
