The Bahamas in the future: A look at the Church - Apr 27, 2015 - 7:53:10 PM

So, far be it from me to stand in the way of telling you or anyone the great seer that is I, basking in my glorious rightness and prophetic wisdom, only to be outshone by my radiant halo of knowledge and infinite enlightenment.

Surely of course I jest.  However, ruminating over the factors that can shape, and are in fact shaping our country, is what many people, particularly in politics, both active participants and their operatives, whether from the base community level or to the pulpit, try to convey to us on a daily basis...

Delivery of fixed broadband wireless services halted by URCA - Apr 27, 2015 - 12:33:38 AM

Nassau, Bahamas -  URCA has issued an interim order requiring Cable Bahamas Ltd (CBL) to halt construction of towers that the company has stated it intends to use to facilitate the provision of fixed wireless broadband services to its customers. CBL has taken immediate steps to comply with URCA's order and has stated its commitment to comply fully with the regulator's investigation.

CBL expressed surprise at URCA's action, considering that earlier this year the regulator contacted the company to ensure that the new infrastructure being put in place was not being constructed for use in the delivery of cellular services. CBL confirmed that the new infrastructure was to support and facilitate the provision of wireless-broadband services and would not breach the current cellular exclusivity, given the consequences of such a breach.

On the heels of the College of The Bahamas' intention to raise tuition fees, we the members of the Torchbearers Youth Association wish to express our discontent with this ill-timed increase. It is our view that no such increase is needed at this time, especially when many Bahamians are still feeling the pinch of a slowed and dampened Bahamian economy. With an overall increase in the cost of living in the Bahamas, compounded with the debilitating effects that have been brought about as a result of the introduction of Value Added Tax (VAT), students are already struggling to meet the costs of obtaining a quality education...

Minnis, “Where is the Prime Minister in the Marathon Health Crisis” - Apr 26, 2015 - 6:08:25 PM

(Statement: Nassau, Bahamas) The PLP Government has once again betrayed the trust and failed the people of the Marathon Constituency, and the people of the Bahamas. Prime Minister Christie and his Cabinet Ministers have botched the handling of one of the worst health crisis in recent times. There has been a total lack of concern, lack of responsibility, lack of information, and lack of coordination. Why did the Government conceal the contents of the Rubis Report for over a year? Why has the Minister of Health been silent and the Prime Minister absent during this health crisis? While Cabinet Ministers duck and dodge, and play the blame game, the Prime Minister who claims to be a champion for the environment outside the country has remained silent when disaster hits his own people...
