Bahamas Agriculture Implements Project to Advance Food Security - Jul 28, 2014 - 5:44:09 PM

The sweet potato is the most important edible root to food security, followed by cassava in The Bahamas. Successive projects have aimed at increasing the amount of root crops produced, in an effort to satisfy increasing local demand for these commodities.

In response to Leon Williams, BTC - Jul 28, 2014 - 5:36:19 PM


Does the new BTC CEO, Mr. Leon Williams take the Bahamian public for fools? It certainly appears that way.

He’s telling us that liberalization of the telecommunications sector is a bad thing, that BTC is not ready, that revenue lines are flat, that 738 BTC employees could lose their jobs. In essence he’s saying that BTC would not be able to compete. At least that part may be true.

Before BTC was privatized, we were informed that it was one of the few profitable government corporations, bringing $30 million a year into the treasury coffers. A year after it was sold the CEO of BTC, Geoff Huston announced that government, even while holding only 49% of BTC shares, was making almost double its pre privatization profits.

Aviation Lawyer: Bahamas Has Chance to ‘Get Out in Front’ in Drone Legislation - Jul 27, 2014 - 12:38:09 PM

Two recent close calls between unmanned aerial vehicles and passenger aircraft on the same day – one incident on the approach into New York’s busy LaGuardia airport, the other in California – drew international attention to the increasingly pressing issue about what to do with growing numbers of remotely-controlled drones in crowded airspace.

Now, a Bahamian aviation lawyer and consultant says The Bahamas has a chance to get out in front with drone legislation.

Callenders partner Llewellyn Boyer-Cartwright said the prolific growth in the use of UAVs is leading to an increased need for legislation that would establish rules and regulations governing them in Bahamian air space.
