Mila Kunis Speaks Out About Crisis in Her Home Country of Ukraine and Launches $30 Million Fundraiser (

 Please save lives care about something other than yourselves for once and contribute to others that dont have your skin color and is facing a foe that hasnt stop trying to take over the world since before WWII and only sided with the ALLIES when they were losing so please wake up and help any way you can Please We beg you!!!!

As a Bahamian I was ashamed as not one of our local stations put on our Super Star Jonquel Jones to watch and support her as she battled deep in the playoffs I felt ashamed to be apart of a society that refused to get behind our champion as she competed. :(  Jonquel has exceeded the performance of any male Bahamian basketball counterpart to this date. I was ashamed when I heard someone said sweet bells played with on a team with Magic. What that person failed to realize is that Jonquel's male equivalent would be Kareem starting along side Magic. The WNBA is filled with extremely talented basketball players and Candace Jones who defeated Jonquel is one of the top Female basketball players and a future hall of famer. When Houston dominated the WNBA Cynthia Cooper was a phenom and a beast leading them to multiple championships. The stagnation in the female basketball talent has only been because of society. Yall would support Tennis which I love but most men watch it because of the short skirts. This sexism must stop going forward and all our Champions need to be celebrated. When Deandre Ayton was in the finals every bar I went to had the NBA Finals game on but when I checked for Jonquel I didn't find any and i am ashamed at all of my fellow Bahamians!!!


Congratulations to Sienna Evans for making the Top 13 in the Miss World Top Model Competition from the Bahamas now Team

Congratulations to Chantel O'Brian for finishing 6th in the Miss Universe Competition wishing you future success from the Bahamas Now Team 

Congratulations to Jonquel Jones for her Dominating Season as the MVP of the WNBA hopefully you can win back to back MVPs on a your way to next seasons championship wishing you luck here from the Bahamas now team!

Law of the Seas

I thought it would be important for all Bahamians and any citizen to know the Internal waters, Territorial Sea, Contiguous Zone, Exclusive Economic Zone, Continental Self and High Seas

 In Chemistry are some bonds inseparable? Are different elements contributing to the full Periodic Table? International Relations needs true bonds!!! From da grass root on up; Recycling, Health, Science, Medicine, Interfaith, Art, Film, Firefighting, Rehabilitation, Sports, Music,Cultural respect ( and erybody like gift shop items with that Nations cultural element) Government, Peace building, and justice. For the world to truly prosper like it can! In Equality, Peace, and Love true Bonds are unbreakable!!!

World Currency

While no one should ever dominate a position in life we still dont need to force retirement on the elderly the way technology has advanced we are capable of living more satisfying lives individually, socially, and spiritually!!! The Leadership styles in Russia and Cuba may need Direct Communism as no Country should be forced to change to another Countries exact Leadership style but those who take on those positions in history have not even used those leadership styles to the true worth of those societies if you consider who truly benefited and kept it so they should control it when we must all be given the choice and ability to peacefully seek our goals while contributing to the Nation of our own choosing but if all the talent is in one location what happens to everybody else?  Capitalism, communism, socialism and  and a few other Economic ideas from the 197 Nations needs to be combined to create a true world currency that has all the Flags as its heart!!! If we gat 197 why 1 talking fa all!!!

Should the United Nations Adopt a strategy that incorporates a leadership style of Secretary Generals selected from the 195 member Nations that work together as a team for a fulltime job 9 to 5 year round with vacations which could realistically be coordinated! i believe we must shed the war like mentality and tactics and take Peace Measures!!!

There have been and will continue to be new diseases that are going to be naturally occuring or war induced we must listen to the authority that is trying to control the spread of the diseases before we have another mass loss of life. Every life is important young and old. I believe we must move to a more online business model in society and in education and personal training so please try Site Build It.                   

 To limit the spread of this virus and similar viruses a comprehensive strategy that incorporates other interventions, such as the adherence to infection control measures (hand hygiene and cough etiquette), social distancing, isolation, vaccination, and treatment with antiviral medications, needs to be undertaken.

What is Rulership?a position in which one rules or has sovereignty over others!(*) What gives any the authority to decide for another? Should it be because they are the Strongest? Should it be because you are the smartest? Should it be because you are the most attractive? We all know those who love being the most evil!!! Each Individual is born as an Equal in many valued text across societies! I believe there is never one leader but a team and the team has only been as strong as its weakest link and i am certain it has been misidentified and corrupted and destroyed! With out the true values of Peace Love and Equality! We are all lost! Should One country rule the world? Ok so should one person and i mean 1 individual human-being run the world? I believe Democracy will only ever work as a direct democracy and each person in each field has major contributions to the team that can help us realistically manage work and social life (Family, or the right to enjoy as a single person remember there are monks but God said Free will so it is on them to decide! I would say my peace to deter but i would never force and neither should anyone! A lot of Interfaith meetings should be conducted and it should not be held only by one religion each deserves a turn to speak and teach! No matter if they are in the minority!!! Jesus said "there are more paths to heaven than one book alone!". I believe Democracy will work best with Direct Democracy for all Nations and we must simply help those that cant learn and function at the same speed! As they are valuable as the mightiest! We should all take the mindset Jack of All trades Master of many crafts! If each Pillar is strong how long can the foundation last!!!


If you have someone who is young, old, or has an existing illness or disease and you have to go out or collect supplies please disinfect yourself before getting into contact with them again! Change clothes if you have to and in extremes take a shower. 10 more years for an old wise person can be 100 more years for the youth

One possible step to limiting the spread of the virus may be to adopt a principle where shoes must be taken off at the front door. I say this because people spit and bleed on the ground, animals urinate, and defecate on the ground and hunt and kill, the transmission of bacteria, disease, worms may be carried into your house from your shoes so it may be a good idea to start keeping shoes for outdoors in a separate room especiall if you love the 5 second rule

Ministry of Health: NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (2019-nCoV) 

The Ministry of Health wishes to advise the public of the occurrence of a newly discovered

novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) which has been associated with an outbreak of pneumonia

in Wuhan City, capital of Hubei Province in China. On 31st December 2019, the China

Country Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) was informed of cases of

pneumonia of unknown cause, detected in Wuhan City. A novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

was identified as the causative virus by Chinese authorities on 7th January, 2020.

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the

common cold to more severe diseases, such as, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-

CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). These viruses are zoonotic,

meaning that they are transmitted between animals and people. A novel coronavirus

(nCoV) is a new strain which has not been previously identified in humans.

Cases have been reported in Wuhan City and provinces outside of Wuhan in China. Other

countries including Thailand, Japan, the Republic of Korea and the United States have now

reported cases. The latest reports indicate that there have been nearly 500 confirmed

cases with 17 deaths.

The Ministry of Health will continue to monitor the occurrence of this novel virus with

ongoing updates to the public.

Common signs of infection with this virus include:

• respiratory symptoms,

• fever,

• cough,

• shortness of breath and

• breathing difficulties.

In more severe cases, infection can cause:

• pneumonia,

• severe acute respiratory syndrome,

• kidney failure and

• even death.

Standard recommendations to prevent the spread of this infection include:

• regular proper hand washing,

• covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing,

• thoroughly cooking meat and eggs and

• avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as

coughing and sneezing.

The international medical community, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the

regional Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) are concerned that this new virus can

result in a pandemic (a worldwide occurrence of the virus) as occurred with SARS and H1N1

avian influenza. Should the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) become more efficient at

human-to-human transmission, the threat of a pandemic will increase dramatically. The

global nature of travel and trade could increase the likelihood of the risk of rapid

transmission around the world in a very short period of time.

Based on currently available information, however, WHO does not recommend any

restriction of travel or trade. Today, at the conclusion of the first meeting of the

International Health Regulations Emergency Committee the decision for declaration as a

Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) was deferred until a second

meeting scheduled for tomorrow. At this time, it is expected that additional information

from WHO experts on the ground in China would be considered.

Countries are encouraged to continue strengthening their preparedness for health

emergencies in line with the International Health Regulations (2005).

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health will continue to utilize the established interim guidelines

published by the WHO on how countries can prepare for this virus. This includes how to

monitor for sick people; test samples; treat patients; control infection in health centres;

maintain the right supplies; and communicate with the public about this novel coronavirus.

The Ministry will continue to build on its existing national plans which implemented to

address viruses, such as, SARS and Influenza H1N1 which occurred in a similar. Our aim as

always, is to limit the effect on the population and prevent social disruption as much as


The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Bahamas was worth 12.16 billion US dollars in 2017. The GDP value of Bahamas represents 0.02 percent of the world economy.

The gross domestic product (GDP) measures of national income and output for a given country's economy. The gross domestic product (GDP) is equal to the total expenditures for all final goods and services produced within the country in a stipulated period of time.

Harvard’s Growth Lab has created the Country Complexity Ranking, based on the diversity of exported goods

The lack of diversity in our economy is embarrassing when you think of a Small island nation like Japan ranking #1

"Japan has become the prototypical example of a low-ubiquity, high-sophistication export economy"

"The country also has a wide variety of high value exports and trading partners, lowering the risk of a trade war or industry downturn crippling the country’s economy."

"An over-reliance on a single export can leave a country extremely vulnerable in the event of price volatility or geopolitical events."

Global Security 

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations (UN),[1] charged with the maintenance of international peace and security[2] as well as accepting new members to the United Nations[3] and approving any changes to its United Nations Charter.[4] Its powers include the establishment of peacekeeping operations, the establishment of international sanctions, and the authorization of military action through Security Council resolutions; it is the only UN body with the authority to issue binding resolutions to member states. The Security Council held its first session on 17 January 1946.

The United Nations Security Council is made up of 15 members. The Security council has 5 permanent members China, The United states, France, The United Kingdom, Russia; and 10 non permanent members.

These permanent members can veto any substantive Security Council resolution, including those on the admission of new member states or candidates for Secretary-General. The Security Council also has 10 non-permanent members, elected on a regional basis to serve two-year terms. The body's presidency rotates monthly among its members.

For the Sake of Global Security I feel it is necessary for the United Nations to include all 195 members of the united nations. The power in the hand of the 5 and even 15 will bias global decision making and allow for an unbalance of power in the world. Its a global society and the best form of a democratic society would be world inclusive. Thus the Security Council would be better served in the long run if we move towards the security council increasing its size to the full 195 members of the United Nations.

Freedom of Choice

From the High to the low we all have our own expectations and wants in Life that help us live in this social world one of the major problems is that our wants at times hinders or destroys another life or lives. No one should decide who someone should marry except the intending spouses allowing family members or people in position of authority will always only suit their own purpose creating an uncaring society of controlled slaves trapped in unwanted marriages to maintain the respect and power of people unworthy of making choices for a life long loving society. Should a teacher tell a janitor who to marry, should a principle tell the guidance counselor who to marry, should a President, King, or priest decide for you, in my opinion the answer will always and forever be NO.

Fire Emergency? Check out Bahamas Local for a Fire Station near you 

[Valid RSS] World Report 2015: Syria Today's horrible murder should now demand that we put metal detectors in schools. An incident like this shows the lack of security for our children. Increased measures need to be taken to protect our children. The future of our nation depends on it.

The loss of life is always tragic, Joyelle MacIntosh Lost her life while simply driving her kids’ home, we have lost another mother as the death count currently at 134; continues to rise. What in this world is more important to a child than their mother? This is no average loss as she was a teacher. In times past a teacher was held in high esteem as teaching was and should always be regarded as one of the most honorable professions a person can choose. Teaching is a thankless profession with little pay and a true lack of appreciation. The loss of one of our educators, a person dedicated to instilling knowledge in the minds of our youth is a colossal blow to an already wounded nation.

Sincere Condolences go out to the families of the innocents lost in the Syria Bombings, May calmer heads prevail as we continue to learn how to live in Peace

21st September 2014

International Day Of Peace

The International Day of Peace is observed worldwide every year on 21 September.  The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.

Peace is the absence of conflict.  When one is at peace, one is free from the fear of violence and hostility.  The very word connotes harmony and reconciliation.  Yet, neighbouring nations continue to war with each other.  Young, unarmed men continue to be shot dead guilty of the awful crime of blackness.  Even here at home, our tranquil waters belie the bloody conflicts that are waged in our streets.  Today as the world is at war, we are encouraged by our leaders to be peaceful and to temper our outrage at injustice and corruption.  We are implored to remain calm in the face of the rising cost of existence and an unstable economy in which a small minority continue to prosper. Yet, while we are urged to be peaceful, these leaders continue to make decisions, the consequence of which is inevitable revolution.  The question is will it be peaceful? What are your thoughts?

Women's Rights

A fundamental principle of the United Nations Charter is equal rights for men and women. It is increasingly recognized that meaningful development and lasting peace cannot be achieved without the elimination of discrimination against women.

10th July 2014


41 years ago the Bahamas gained it’s independence and regardless of your political affiliation we all have reason to celebrate.  Being just 33 years young, I am 8 years shy of truly appreciating the significance of this day.

What I find remarkable about this day is that our independence was achieved without the firing of one bullet.  Despite the lack of bloodshed, there was an uprising.  What occurred en masse was the realization of competence of our people. We learnt diplomacy and proved with vigor that we had the ability to run our own affairs. For 41 blessed years through the ups and downs, we are still standing. From Pingdomite era To Hubiggity era we are still here. We have come a long way and still have much to be proud of. 

Yet, one cannot help but look at the state of our country and wonder whether we  have squandered that which was obtained on that fateful 10 July 1973.   The peaceful manner in which we obtained freedom stands in stark contrast to the blood that frequently flows in our country today. Have we governed ourselves with integrity?  Have fairness, equality and justice been our hallmarks?  Have we done a better job than our former colonial masters, or have we allowed an elite minority to emerge.  Have we shaken off the shackles?  Are our minds free?  I would like to hear from you.  What do you think we’ve done with independence for which stouthearted men and women agitated and achieved?
