|Roving with Lalah: :Fish and frolic
in Old Harbour Bay
In the shade of a tall, withering mango tree, Inez sat with a knife
in one hand and a small fish in the other. On the ground in front
of her was a pink plastic container filled with water and what looked,
from where I was standing, like more fish. There were flies circling
the woman's head as she dipped the fish in the water and then scraped
it with the knife. The sun was high in the sky and the smell of
the fish was overwhelming.
Last week Robert journeyed to Old Harbour, St. Catherine. Jamaica.

| Power 106 FM, Programme Profile:
Perkins on Line
Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins
Perkins on Line' is spirited interaction with callers on a wide
range of topics. It is described by many as 'The Poor Man's University'.
A typical caller will often attribute his or her widening knowledge
of events happening in and outside of Jamaica to the information
garnered from just listening to these broadcasts.
Host, Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins says the underlying intent of the programme
is to 'focus public attention on the gaping hiatus between what
is and what might be, and to do it within a broad framework that
embraces not only the history of Jamaica, but the history of mankind'.
There are some who often disagree with his point of view on a particular
as well as general matters. However Motty revels in controversy
and these calls add spice. Given the stated intent of the programme,
Motty says ''if people really think about it, they might discover
that 'Perkins on Line ' is more profoundly positive than negative".
That's why it is called the "Thinking Persons' Call in Show".
The programme is broadcast Monday - Friday , 10:00am - 2:30pm E.S.T.

Process Outsourcing Industry

This week Amitabh Sharma, Features Coordinator, writes on "Knowledge
Process Outsourcing Industry"
Taking a cue from last week, let us look into a phenomenon of
outsourcing that has taken outsourcing to the next level.
For most of us, this means the call centres brimming with youngsters,
taking care of customer service for a client sitting several time
zones apart. This word has another connotation to it, which is Equity
Research or Knowledge Process Outsourcing, (KPO) which is still
at nascent stage.
