The VAT Bill before us is about the introduction of a new tax on consumption in The Bahamas.

Nassau, Bahamas - With knowledge being the key to success and the lack of knowledge the peril, as written in the scriptures, Mr. J encourages all school students to stay in school, with his new Junkanoo single, titled, Stay In School. The song addresses the number of problems teachers are faced with on a daily basis by students and highlights areas of concerns that students should focus on.  Cases of disruptive students, violent behavior, class clowns and instigators, just to name a few, are some of the issues both teachers and students contend with, that hamper a healthy learning environment.
