OFFERING COMPETITIVE SALARIES WITH HEALTH

He s a global pinup who fills sta-
diums and thrills fans. And now
Pope Francis has released what is,
essentially, a rock album.
He doesn t sing, but the pontiff
who has energised millions of Roman
Catholics with his vision of a com-
passionate, socially committed church
lends his voice to an album of spiritual
Wake Up! mixes excerpts from the
pope s speeches, homilies and prayers
include dollops of everything from
Gregorian chant to rock guitar.
Francis words---in Spanish, Italian,
English and Portuguese, with a book-
let providing translation---touch on
key themes of his papacy: youth, the
environment, the joy of faith and the
degrading effects of consumerism.
Musical settings take in Pan pipes,
sinuous beats and a veritable tsunami
of synth. It s a bit of a hodgepodge
and clearly the work of many hands,
with credits for more than half a
dozen composers, arrangers as well
as artistic director Don Giulio Neroni.
The mix is at its most arresting on
the lead single---yes, Francis is a pope
who releases singles---Wake Up! Go!
Go! Forward! The track sets the
pope s exhortation to embrace "the
beauty of holiness" amid wailing gui-
tar licks and rousing trumpet bursts.
At times Wake Up! feels like a
1980s middle-of-the-road rock
album interrupted by soft-spoken
spiritual musings. While it s not
always a heavenly mashup, it s a
heartfelt offering that should burnish
Francis image as the people s pope.

A NEW YORK COLLEGE WHERE
TRINIDADIAN & TOBOGONIAN
STUDENTS FEEL RIGHT AT HOME
So many double-entendres come to mind
when you hear "Join us as we get wet on the
way to finding out who will be the
Caribbean s Next Top Model," at the begin-
ning of week 5. (Hint: they re doing a swim-
suit photoshoot.) But I ll let you come up
with those on your own.
Host Wendy Fitzwilliam said this week s
challenge was about continuing to strengthen
core and balance. The challenge was stand-
up paddling with legendary Bajan waterman,
"It s all about the core, the arms, the balance,
and also the whole body, because you re out
on the water and you re moving. If you can
stand up, you can paddle," he said.
Well, some of the girls promptly
proved him wrong. Hindsight is
always 20/20 and Yugge lamented
the fact that she hadn t gone with
some of the girls to do the stand-
up paddling the day before. But
she had a good reason, and one
that s all too common in the
Caribbean: she can t swim!
Syndey, Linda and
Mackella had practiced
before and were really
confident. The girls
had to do two
heats of four
each and the
As expected, Yugge kept falling off her board.
Kittisha kept trying not to fall off, because
she couldn t swim either. Sydney ended up
winning the challenge and the prize of two
One piece, two piece, hot, spicy or sweet?
was the Wendy mail message, which left the
girls speculating about a swimsuit challenge
in KFC or Cheffette!! But no, it was on the
beach and the girls were asked to be pretty,
sexy and also athletic.
Mackella and Lia struggled, and the pho-
tographer, Risée Chaderton, was disappointed
with Mackella especially not being able to
show off her height. She was however
impressed with Nicoya, saying that she
was able to use her body as an art piece.
Chaderton was impressed with the girls
overall, saying they responded well to
the brief they were given.
Talma was guest judge at the judging
panel, along with Fitzwilliam, Richard
Young and photographer Pedro
Virgil. The judges loved Nicoya s
although Virgil said he would have loved a
little more eye contact.
Fitzwilliam called Kittisha s photo beautiful
but asked for a little more effort, and Young
said she was one of the few girls who laughed
during the shoot.
Yugge s photo showed a beautiful vulnerable
feminine power, according to Fitzwilliam, and
Talma called it an amazing shot. Mackella was
the first to get a bad critique this week from
Fitzwilliam, who said she needed to work
harder at the business of photography. Virgil
reminded her and the rest of the girls that
they should be conscious of every component
of their body during a shoot.
The judges approved of Lia s shot, calling
it edgy and sexy. They also told Linda that
she exuded strength, confidence and power.
Young said Sydney s photo was easy Caribbean,
but the judges were a bit disappointed because
she hadn t brought more movement to the
Yugge won best photo of the week, and
Wendy congratulated her about stepping it up
as asked. Next was Nicoya, followed by Lia,
Linda, Kittisha and Ayanna. Sydney and
Mackella were in the bottom two and, as much
as Wendy said she hated sending people home,
in the end Mackella was eliminated.
The drama continues next week, as
the girls go on go-sees and do a pho-
toshoot with, gasp, snakes!!!
...on Next Top Model
After a stern warning
about her behaviour,
Yugge raised her game
and won the photo
challenge in Caribbean's
Next Top Model.
