This Week in The Bahamas Commentary by Elcott Coleby: Gaming Bill Passes, Amended Crime Bills - Sep 19, 2014 - 4:18:57 PM

NASSAU, The Bahamas -- Celebrating the accomplishments of women artists, Her Excellency Dame Marguerite Pindling, Governor General, opened the Central Bank of The Bahamas art exhibition, “INSTINCT” – the new artwork of nine dynamic painters and sculptors on September 18.

Dame Marguerite said the display showed a labour of love and in some cases a glimpse of their innermost thoughts, fears, joys, and perhaps a piece of their soul, all for our enjoyment and edification.

“These women have taken on art as a life-long passionate cause and pursued its development and evolution with dogged tenacity alongside the pursuit of more traditional careers, as they loved and nurtured their families,” she noted.

Children in Crisis - Sep 19, 2014 - 2:09:01 PM

A crisis usually involves a temporary loss of coping abilities, and the assumption is that the emotional dysfunction is reversible. If a person effectively copes with the threat of a crisis, he or she then returns to prior levels of functioning.

Children are resilient at heart; however they often struggle with rejection and neglect from their parents.

The Chinese character for “crisis” is made up of two symbols, one for despair and the other for opportunity. When doctors talk about a crisis, they are talking about the moment in the course of a disease when a change for the worse or better occurs. As a counselor when I talk about marital crisis, I’m talking about turning points when the marriage can go in either direction...

"Bahamas VAT System - Triumphs and Pitfalls" (Part 1) - Sep 19, 2014 - 1:45:59 PM

John-Bain.jpg
I
n a previous paper, we posit that VAT was probably 20 years too late. The July 1, 2014 was the original date of the proposed system of Value Added Tax (VAT). Some persons thought it was too soon, and the government listened. The announcement date did, as was expected, generate much debate from the intellectual community, the business community and the general population. Now the debate is over and The House of Assembly passed the modified Bill. The original guidance was limited in its detail and an earlier exposure may have invited earlier comments.

Today, however, after the delay and further studies by interested parties, the government of The Bahamas has announced a new date of implementation as January 1, 2015. It has also published the updated bill and a set of regulations, as well as embarked on a public relations system...
