President John F Kennedy in his speech on May 1961 AD, committing US$24 billion to Placing a Man on the Moon The week of Sunday April 10th 2011 to Saturday April 16th 2011 was an eventful one. It, dear reader, was marked by the celebration of the history making exploits of Yuri Gagarin, the twenty seven (27)-year old cosmonaut who blasted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome on 12th April 1961AD.

With the impending transition to Electric Vehicles’s now all but certain, much attention must be paid to the technology, as like it or not, Jamaica will soon have to make the transition to EV’s by virtue of the fact that our Japanese made gas guzzlers may soon be of no longer able to run, monuments to inefficiency parked along the roadside for the scrap-metal traders to devour. This is due to an impending chronic spare parts shortage. Jamaicans are not as inventive as Cubans, who can get by on modified older cars.
