Cargo
, an action/drama written by Bahamian filmmaker Kareem J. Mortimer has just wrapped production in The Bahamas. The film explores the miry world of human trafficking. The feature film is loosely based on the 8-time award-winning short film Passage

"It's a wrap!," said the director. "So much to say about this so I'll just be grateful for this experience with some of the most amazing people. I will say one thing, this film took us to parts of Nassau I've never been before and a few times I got really emotional. Two locations were the grove and a shanty town."

Bahamas' First Cochlear Implant Surgery Deemed a Success - Dec 18, 2015 - 1:34:51 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Three years ago, Wesley Paul suddenly went deaf. He had just no residual hearing in his left ear and minimal hearing in his right, and he was no longer able to communicate, continue to work in the financial sector or participate in one of his favourite hobbies – singing.

While it remains unclear what led to his hearing loss, Wesley recalls having an earache in August, 2012. He took over the counter medication and never got medical attention, instead he compensated for the deficiency by relying on his left ear for listening and receiving information.

NASSAU, Bahamas — Missing two grand opening deadlines isn’t something that any large venture hopes to experience, but that’s exactly what has happened to Baha Mar.

Touted as China’s largest commercial real estate project in the Western Hemisphere, Baha Mar, a $3.5 billion Bahamian resort complex, has floundered this year, causing the most serious economic damage the small island country has seen since the global financial crisis. The resort is predicted to contribute 12 percent to the country’s gross domestic product, but its failure to materialize has at least in part led Standard & Poor’s to downgrade the country’s sovereign credit rating...
