Local Bahamas fraternity supports “Suit and Tie” drive - Mar 5, 2015 - 4:25:02 PM


20150221_112304_sm.jpg
The men of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity are known across US College campuses as the more debonair, well dressed of the Greek letter fraternal organizations. It’s a designation Kappa men are all too happy to carry on long after their college days are over and done with. It’s no wonder that the local alumni chapter was able to donate over 100 suits, ties and shirts to a group of men looking for a second chance at making a first impression.

The Bahamas Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. (ΚΑΨ) donated the proceeds of a “Suit and Tie” drive, which included over 100 suits, over 150 ties, and approximately 50 dress shirts to The National Lead Institute, a community correctional organizational which assists men in transition...

DNA: Over Taxation Hindering Economic Expansion - Mar 5, 2015 - 2:26:45 PM

Since coming to office, this Christie led administration has managed to abandon or renege on most, if not all of its 2012 general election campaign promises. After promising on the one hand to believe in Bahamians, this government has done the exact opposite; relegating our people and our culture to the political back burner. After promising to improve the quality of life for all Bahamians through economic stimulation, this government has again failed at key components of that economic strategy including job creation.

It is a universally accepted idea that the most effective way to spur real economic change is to stimulate small business and innovation by lowering taxes...

Elcott Coleby: The Need for Universal Health Insurance - Mar 5, 2015 - 2:21:26 PM

“In 2010, there were 723 deaths in categories deemed avoidable in The Bahamas.” This according to recent media reports sourced from the Sanigest Report – prepared by Sanigest Internacional - a Costa Rican health care consultancy firm contracted by the Bahamas government to conduct a feasibility study into the implementation of some form of universal health insurance. The report also assumed that “ten percent of the estimated deaths are preventable through NHI.”

Preventable deaths and other modalities are a function of access, or wealth and diet (which affects the strength of the immune system and its ability to fight off diseases) responded health minister Dr. Perry Gomez, and not necessarily a reflection of the quality of health care delivered through the country’s public health care system.
