Caribbean News From St Lucia, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago

Police accused of being responsible for drug trade'  
 Trinidad Express Sunday March 24

Stakeholders and informants, both outside and behind prison walls, have accused certain police officers of being bandits.

"Police are frequently accused of being responsible for much of the corruption that exists in the drug economy," according to the findings of the crime report put together by the five-member committee chaired by Prof Selwyn Ryan to enquire into the cause of criminality in the country.

 In its findings on the issues of "Prison Reform, the Justice System and Policing", the committee reported it was told by informants that they believe that between 30 to 40 per cent of the members of the Police Service were corrupt and that policemen were either "invisible members or associates of gangs or controllers of their activities".

Jobs in jeopardy - Scores of Jamaican teachers in the Turks and Caicos might be sent packing

Sunday Gleaner March 24

More than 200 Jamaican teachers who work in the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) classrooms are in danger of losing their jobs as the Government of that country mulls a proposal to scrap the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) curriculum.

If the plan gains traction in the court of public opinion, the Jamaicans, who account for approximately 70 per cent of the teachers in the TCI will be sent home.

Akierra Missick, deputy premier and Minister of Education, Youth, Sport and Culture, in the TCI told The Sunday Gleaner that if the people of that country support a proposal to replace the certification offered by the CXC with a more internationally recognised curriculum, then regional teachers might be sent packing.

State keeps tabs on criminal deportees, says Golding

Sunday Gleaner March 24th 

 Justice Minister Senator Mark Golding has challenged claims that persons convicted of serious sexual crimes overseas and deported to Jamaica could be roaming the streets with nobody knowing where they are.

According to Golding, there are provisions in an existing legislation that allow the State to track persons deported for serious crimes including rape and other sexual offences.
Responding to a reported carried in The Sunday Gleaner that between 2008 and 2012 close to 250 persons were deported to Jamaica for committing serious sex crimes and there is no provision to allow the State to keep tabs on them; Golding said our sources were wrong.

St Lucia Star Sunday March 24th

I had just completed Friday morning the article that occupies this issue’s center pages when a tantalizing thought occurred to me:

What if the prime minister should announce to the nation—in the absence of a CSA consensus—his intention to take off the table his four percent offer and return to his original no-can-do position?

Whatever may have possessed him to abandon his original position, it has been made quite clear his reckless generosity barely impressed the dissident public sector workers, despite the prime minister’s warning that to bend to the CSA’s demands will dump the nation in waters more turbulent than it can possibly survive.  Read Here

Hello readers, this week I decided to bring you news from various islands in the Carribbean.  What I intend to do is post the headline news from different Caribbean newspaper and link back to the original article. 

Please provide feedback on how you feel about this approach.

Review: Getting The Most Out Of Something FREE


 

A New Web Site Every Month Free


Go Here 

Free Monthly Websites, in my opinion is one of those programs you either know what to do with or you don’t. You can get the most of it Free Monthly Websites if you use it as a tool to earn you an extra perpetual income stream.

What can you do with this free website? Well to be honest the free website has duplicate content so you can rule out getting to the top of the search engine rankings, the premier websites are a different kettle of fish all together but I will get to those in a moment.


Take option 1 above ‘Selling eBooks’ if you sell eBooks especially PLR (private Label Content) conversions, you will find Free Monthly Websites have a rather large verity of websites that correspond with a lot of the PLR out there (if you are a premier member you get a bonus PLR eBook). All you need to do is upload your eBook to a convenient location on your webspace and place a few corresponding links inside your PLR eBook for example:


--> I have a weight loss eBook and a small paragraph saying “there are 100’s ways to lose weight which can be found in various forms from Books to television to fitness programs bla bla bla” you could not take this small paragraph and insert your Free Monthly Websites website link in a prime location for instance “there are 100’s ways to lose weight which can be found in various forms from Books to television to fitness programs the best resource I found is at

Here

Is The Government Addressing The Non-Communicable Disease Crisis In Trinidad and Tobago?

It May Appear That Way But A Closer Look Raises More Questions Than Answers

The impact of NCDs on our populations can no longer be viewed solely as a health crisis. The Government of Trinidad and Tobago recognizes this challenge and has therefore put in place measures to prevent and treat persons affected by these NCDs.

We have experienced great successes and strides in public health.  We have been able to reduce infant mortality, eradicate polio, and virtually eliminate childhood diseases like measles, and diphtheria as major causes of infant morbidity and mortality through our robust primary care programmes. 

-->
Nevertheless, over the past decade, heart disease has remained the number 1 cause of death, accounting for 25%.  Diabetes has remained fairly constant accounting for just under 14% of deaths.  Cancers have increased slightly from 12.7% to 13.8%.  In the case of strokes, however, there has been a 1% decline from 10% to 9%.

Those words were delivered in a speech by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar during the 66th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, United Nations Headquarters, New York, September 19, 2011.

-->
Her speech confirms that she understands the extent of the problem we face.  You can read the rest of it here. Since she has returned her response to what she termed a crisis has been wanting. She must have mentioned something to the Health Minister because soon after he came up with this.  

A programme launched in November of 2011, a couple of months after she came back, it was called “Fight The Fat” Details are here 

-->
Then in August of 2012 the Health Ministry hosted another wellness programme entitled “National Wellness Day – The Healthiest Day in the Nation’s History” Go here if you want to read about what they did.




Now we are talking about minds that are leading our country.  We are talking about poeple with high academic standing with access to unlimited information.  What has evolved from those highly educated minds in the Ministry of Health, our government, have as a solution a number of non-sustainable responses to a major health crisis in our country.  In terms of educating the public these events are absolutely necessary but that's like putting a band aid on a cutlass chop.

Why not put a progrmme in place that targets food manufacturers, importers, wholesalers.  The rationale is simple, if unhealthy foods are not available, the citizenry will have no other alternative than healthy choices? A simple standardization program that limits toxic ingredients that can be legally used with severe penalties for breaking the law.  The target being food manufacturers like local bakers, confectionary producers and soft drink companies. These industries will not self regulate while the government focus is on “educating consumers”.

An article was published a couple of days ago that reinforced the belief that the government really does not know what it's doing with respect to health.  The PM words now have more relevance when she said;

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago recognizes this challenge and has therefore put in place measures to prevent and treat persons affected by these NCDs.

She did not say anything about the industries that produce unhealthy foods.  Her focus is on treatment, not prevention. And this, according to the Health Minister:

"Processed food on the whole, it is laced with chemicals, as well as different substances that can irritate basically any part of your system, cells and otherwise, and create abnormal growth, which is cancer, and also at the same time could cause cardiac diseases or heart diseases," he said.
He noted that many of the additives and the processed chemicals were used to preserve the food and make it taste good.


"And those processed chemicals can cause the person to be highly addicted to the food themselves. So once you start eating it, you start to miss it, and it creates a system where you want it."
The worst part of this is the conclusion by the Health Minister, here is what was reported on the last line of the article.  

The article noted that ...as Health Minister, he could not legislate behavior, but could only educate "and hope that it sticks on fertile ground".

Send a message for the Minister: Yes, we can legislate behavior.  Most governments are able to do it if they recognize the importance like saving lives.  They have done it with seat belt laws, use of cell phones, drinking and driving.

The question as it relates to NCDs is; whose behavior should be legislated. Are you going to legislate the industries that are flooding the market with bad food?  Or, are you going to pick on the soft target like the consumers who purchase what’s available on the market?


Who should the Health Minister protect?

Laser or Electrolysis: Which Is Better For Hair Removal?

How To Permanently Control The Growth Of Unwanted Hair

Written for a client, Elite Electrolysis 7 Wart Removal Clinic, to promote her hair removal services. The business is located on the Eastern Main Road, Eldorado, Tunapuna Trinidad, It follows.

The human species has always had a compulsion to remove body hairs. Driven by the need to conform to cultural and societal norms, man has a history of inventing new hair removal procedures.

Ironically, hair removal is usually not prompted by a medical condition but by a desire to enhance beauty or appearance. Tradition and cultural perceptions of beauty makes hair removal from certain parts of the body accepted and normal. Women, being beauty conscious, are more prone to remove body hairs man on the other hand, if he shaves remove hair on a daily basis.

-->  The urge, some may say the need, to remove hair usually begins at puberty and can continue until death. Here, in Trinidad, hair removal requests usually includes but is not limited to; the chest, face legs, arms, armpits, or bikini lines. The emphasis is on getting smooth, hairless skin. Understanding how hair grows is the first step in knowing what happens when you remove “unwanted hair”.

Hair Growth 
Each grain of hair is contained in a hair follicle with sebaceous glands and erector pili muscles. All these minute parts are collectively called a pilosebaceous unit. This unit is one of nature’s biological systems that continuously regulate the growth, shedding and re-growth of body hairs. It is a natural cycle that has 3 identifiable phases.

1. The anagen phase or growth period,

2. The catagen phase or transitional state, and

3. The telogen phase is the resting period.

The life span of a grain of hair depends on a person’s genetics and hormones but body location is a significant determinant. In some cases hair growth is triggered by a medical condition such as “Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome”. Caused by a female hormonal imbalance, this condition has been known to stimulate facial hair growth. The following are the generally accepted ways to remove hair.

Short Term Temporary Physical Removal: 

Shaving – Removal with sharp instrument o Chemical – Using a chemical like Magic Shave to dissolve hair 

Plucking – Individually pulling each hair from its root

Medium Term Removal

Waxing – Using hot waxing agent to remove hair 

Sugar Waxing – Same as waxing but with caramel for easy cleanup

Long Term Permanent Removal: 

Electrolysis – A tiny needle inserted into a follicle and zapped

Laser – Use a laser beam to zap hair at its roots (reduces and not permanently remove hair)

Short term hair removal is generally accepted as in the case of men who shave daily. Most people however, know very little about the longer term permanent treatments. Fact is that laser hair removal is a relatively new technology having been first introduced about 20 years ago. Electrolysis has been used for over 125 years ago and most people know very little of this ancient science. Today, it is still a much used treatment option. The obvious question is…
-->
What’s the Difference Between Laser and Electrolysis? 

 Laser employs the use or electrical energy in the form of a pulsating light beam to destroy everything contained in a hair follicles. The beam is aimed at hair follicles where it burns up the melanin in the hair. This temporarily stops the growth process. This process will have to be repeated over 5 to 8 sessions with about 6 to 8 weeks between sessions. Because lasers targets the melanin in the hair it does not work on light (i.e. known as fair) hair.

The advantages of choosing laser are that the procedure itself is relatively quick when compared to electrolysis allow for a larger area of the body to be treated in a fraction of the time it will take an electrolysis technician. The disadvantages are a usually high cost for treatment, potential inflammation and possibility of a change in pigmentation.

Electrolysis uses a tiny needle that is inserted into the hair follicle, then a low level electrical charge is pulsed into it. The electrical charge seals the root of the hair follicle burning away the existing hair structure. This process is repeated follicle by follicle until the area is cleaned of all unwanted hair. The process burns out the hair follicle and permanently stunts the growth of hair.

There are basically two type so electrolysis used in hair removal; galvanic and thermolysis.

In Trinidad most practitioners have a preference for galvanic electrolysis without the use of chemical agents. The reason is that chemicals can react adversely to different skin types. It is therefore safer to avoid them when possible.

The primary advantage of electrolysis, aside from it being the ONLY way to permanently remove hair is the fees. Typically prices will range less than 10 percent of cost of laser hair removal.

The disadvantage is that the procedure requires microscopic focus on each hair follicle. The technician must repeat the process for each hair follicle. As such, this procedure is more suited to small areas such as facial hairs and armpits. It’s not as fast as laser.

Skin tone and sensitivity vary from individual to individual. It is therefore important that the right hair removal procedure be performed to minimize or eliminate the possibility of adverse reactions. It is important to identify a hair removal technician with the proper credentials and experience.

--> For a no cost consultation, call; Elite Electrolysis & Wart Clinic in Tunapuna. Ask for Stacee Thompson. Mrs. Thompson has 15 years experience as a certified Hair Removal technician. She will book a 15 minute no obligation appointment to assess and recommend treatment.

6 Years Later "Youth Voices Magazine" Still Strong

For a few years now I have been associated with a young magazine put together by a group of youths managed by David Massiah. I met David when I had first returned to Trinidad. It was quite by accident,

I had created a local merchant coupon booklet and was in the process of selling pages to local businesses when a merchant in Tunapuna that he had already purchased from David Massiah.

Who was David Massiah?, I asked.

Somehow we connected after hearing about him from the merchant.  David was the master mind behind the Youth Voice Magazine.

 He organized the youths and coordinated the entire magazine production process sold ads and begged for sponsorship from where ever it came.  I remember one of our initial conversations:

 Me: "Hey David both you and I know that kids not reading anymore"

Him: "Yes but they should and the stuff they getting is all about T&A. I want to offer something different, something more positive."

That has been his position ever since in hard times even when other people suggested that he do what sells.  I sold him a couple of copy writing services and moved on but we kept in touch. Soon I was contributing articles and assisting in small ways with the magazine.

I remember one day he came asking a favor; write a letter to the then Prime Minister Patrick Manning to get an interview. I obliged and he was called to the PM office for the interview.  He has been able to secure interview with celebrities, sports figures and politicians.  In his latest issue he features Anya Ayoung-Chee.  Find out why she is not thinking about getting married and what her plans for the future in fashion after her success in Project Runway.

The magazine is published quarterly and it targeted to youths in Trinidad and Tobago with a focus on belonging in the Caribbean region. According to David, the magazine is NOT just a magazine, the magazine should be the voice of a movement. A movement that is not physical but mental. It's a movement, a mental process where youths are asked to consciously choose between a healthy,

God driven lifestyle or venture out alone and ignorant.

Youth Voices is an option for youths who are constantly exposed to a variety of weaknesses in our society. Membership in the Youth Voices Movement means that this particular youth has been exposed to positive influences. Youth Voices members are conscious of what’s right and wrong and assume responsibility for all their actions. They hold to the tenets of their respective religions, they are respectful, ambitious and have a sense of community.

 Please view the Youth Voice latest magazine online. I agree with and support David's idealism. He is no longer a client he's a friend.

Killer in your Fridge - important warning



WHAT YOU'RE EATING MAY BE KILLING YOU


This is the content of an email that was shared with me and in my opinion the world should know about.  Nothing was changed on it except for the formatting.  The author is unknown.  Just doing  my small part for humanity.  It's entitled:


SWEET POISON... 



In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick.  She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around.  Walking was a major chore.  It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.

By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications.  The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her.  She was in so much pain, and so sick she just knew she was dying.

She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughter's name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of.

She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.

On March 19, I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS.

I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda?  She told me that she did.  As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.

I told her not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet soda!  I e-mailed her an article my friend, a lawyer, had sent.  My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet soda AND she could walk!  The muscle spasms went away.  She said she didn't feel 100% but, she sure felt a lot better.
-->
She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me when she got home.

Well, she called me, and said her doctor was amazed!  He is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of any kind.  In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda ... and, literally, dying a slow and miserable death.

When she got to Florida March 22, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for the Aspartame poisoning!  She is well on her way to a complete recovery.  And she is walking! No wheelchair!  This article saved her life.

If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the label; DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on 'ASPARTAME,' marketed as 'Nutra Sweet,' 'Equal,' and 'Spoonful.'

In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States, in 2001, there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.  It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant.  I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.

I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous:  When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F., the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.  Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.  The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.

Many people were being diagnosed in error.  Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is!

Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.

The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit.  He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition.  We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.

In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly.

This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.  During a lecture, I said, 'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs,


Cramps,
Vertigo,
Dizziness,
Headaches,
Tinnitus,
Joint pain,
unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!'  People were jumping up during the lecture saying, 'I have some of these symptoms.  Is it reversible?'



Yes!
Yes!
Yes!

-->

STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame on food labels!  Many products are fortified with it!  This is a serious problem.  Dr. Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and during his recent visit to a hospice; a nurse stated that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS.  This is beyond coincidence!

Diet soda is NOT a diet product!  It is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates.

It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight!

These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.  Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve 'tissue specimens.'

Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body!

Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the 'diet products' and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics.  We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame.  The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control.  Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.

Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE.  Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, Seizures, Depression, Manic depression, Panic attacks, Uncontrollable anger and rage.

Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.

So called 'behavior modification prescription drugs' (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed.  Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place!

Most of these children were being 'poisoned' on a daily basis with the very foods that were 'better for them than sugar.'

It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.

Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.  Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners.

There are many different case histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.'

Herein lies the problem:  There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use.  Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.

Sadly, MONSANTO'S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED!  There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced.  Everybody wants a 'piece of the Aspartame pie.'

I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is.

And isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians?

This has been recently exposed in the New York Times.  These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products.

Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants.

The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.
The bill was killed.

It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public.  




Well, you're informed now!

Is There Corruption In Trinidad & Tobago?

Corruption Is A Natural Self Preservation Instinct


The Trinidad and Tobago government insists on transparency and anti-corruption in everything it does.  As one in a not so large population it is a little differcult to believe.

I have no political affilations and even support the move to remove the PNM government from power because it was obvious that the then Prime Minister had become a megalomaniac.

The country should have paid more attention to the words of the previous Prime Minister and ex political leader of the party that ousted him Mr. Basdeo Panday.  He hit it on the head when he said the country could expect "an exchange and no change".

It was an exchange in sorts that brought on more than one government missteps.  The government went into a fenzy a couple months ago when someone in Jamaica accused it of "ethnic stocking" like a guilty child they started throwing tantrums.  It did not matter the proof as usual is in the pudding.

Blatant and public proof of corruption, despite and after the numerous accusations against Mr. Jack Warner and an international body FIFA label him "economical with the truth" the Prime Minister appointed him National Security Minister, Nobody needs an investigation or report to realize that there is some stale fish in the market. 

If you had any questions take a look at the following videos.  They were not put together by crazies, corruption is real and living color in Trinidad and Tobago.
