Her lack of confidence had impacted her school work as a Grade 3 girl at Sunland Baptist Academy, but she was naturally strong and well-coordinated, and armed with those qualities joined The Bahamas Martial Arts Academy. Just eight years later she made history.

Baha Mar still sits vacant; an empty hulking testament to the PLP’s many broken promises – this one being their promise of five-thousand good paying jobs. And thanks to the empty rhetoric and broken promises from this PLP Government, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) projects that The Bahamas unemployment rate will increase to 15.6 percent.”

Using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have conducted the first search for atmospheres around temperate, Earth-sized planets beyond our solar system and found indications that increase the chances of habitability on two exoplanets.

Specifically, they discovered that the exoplanets TRAPPIST-1b and TRAPPIST-1c, approximately 40 light-years away, are unlikely to have puffy, hydrogen-dominated atmospheres usually found on gaseous worlds.

“The lack of a smothering hydrogen-helium envelope increases the chances for habitability on these planets,” said team member Nikole Lewis ...

We took note that on the other fold was an opinion editorial written by the former FNM Minister of Finance, Zhivargo Laing, where he asked what exactly is wrong with the economy? It is almost as if they were trying to give you visions of what would happen under Butler-Turner’s leadership. Quite frankly, those visions are more like nightmares!
