"TO CHILDREN EVERYWHERE" -- DR. JEROME TEELUCKSINGH


THE ONE WHO DROPS NOT LAGS IN THE RACE,
IMAGINES PROBLEMS HE CANNOT FACE.
GOOD DEEDS AND KINDNESS WILL NEVER VANISH WITHOUT A TRACE.
WITH MINDS LOST IN SPACE,
DREAMING OF WORLD OF LOVE, NEVER BOTHERING ABOUT LIFE ABOVE.
AND THERE IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF MISERY AND ACTIONS IMPURE,
THEY MUST CONTINUE TILL THE LAST BEAT AND PAINFULLY ENDURE.

A PREMATURE ENDING OR AN AILMENT WITHOUT CURE,
NEVER A PROPER TREND FOR SURE.
MANY IN THE OBSTACLE RACE RECEIVE NO PRIZE,
BUT THERE’S SURELY NO NEED FOR A WASTED SACRIFICE.
FOR A LIFE STRANGE MIGHT YIELD A SURPRISE
THAT WILL MULTIPLY AND BE MORE THAN SUFFICE.
SO BE IT HOME OR OFFICE,
NEVER WAIT FOR THE FINAL HOUR TO BE NICE.


THE JOURNEY WILL NOT ALWAYS BE BLEAK AND DARK,
SO FOREVER REMEMBER YOUR DESTINY AND LEAVE YOUR MARK.
OTHERS WILL RECALL YOUR ACTIONS WITH A POLITE REMARK.
NEVER FORGET BEADS OF SWEAT ON YOUR BROW. CONSTANTLY TIRED AND TAUT.
BEAR IN MIND GOODLY ADVICE AND MORALS TAUGHT.
FOR MANY A DEED DONE WITHOUT SPARE THOUGHT,
RESULTED IN SADNESS AND NOUGHT.
TRAIN HARD YOU CAREFREE YOUTH
BECAUSE WHEN MUSCLES AGE, SUDDENLY DAWNS THE MOMENT OF TRUTH,
YOU’LL SHINE AMONG THE STUBBORN AND UNCOUTH.
WISELY ALLOCATE STUDY, WORK, AND SLEEP,
NEVER ALLOW FAULTS REMAIN AND PROMISES YOU MUST KEEP.
DECEITFUL ATHLETES REAP TRANSIENT GLORY BEFORE THEY FELL.
DEFIANT LOSERS SOMETIMES RETURN AND TIME WILL SURELY TELL
IF THEY WIN THE RACES AND HANDLE FAME WELL.


NEVER BE IDLE OR THINK OF UNDUE REST,
IF A SITUATION DEMANDS YOUR VERY BEST.
FOR THE TIME HAS COME TO LEAVE THE NEST
AND ENSURE YOUR RESTING PLACE IS BLEST.
THIS RACE SO STRANGE AND DIFFICULT
AND ITS DETOURS CAUSE MANY TO DEFAULT.
AND THOSE WITHOUT GOALS WILL EVENTUALLY HALT,
FORGETTING DREAMS OF BECOMING THE PRIZED SALT.
BUT YOU MUST CONTINUE AND REMEDY INNER FAULT.



YOUR LOVE AND ACTIONS WILL BE TREASURED IN A HEAVENLY VAULT,
THUS OTHERS DEPEND ON YOUR ENDURANCE,
FOR GUIDANCE AND ELUSIVE ASSURANCE.
SO BEFORE DREAMING OF THAT MEDAL TO ADORN,
ON BENDED KNEES MUST GIVE THANKS FROM MORN,
TO HIM WHO INFLUENCED WINNERS
AND PUSHES ALONG SLOW, STUMBLING SINNERS.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
