Bahamians Wins Two Bronze for Judo at Commonwealth Youth Games - Jul 21, 2017 - 10:13:08 PM

Said Kara Hanna – the training is not as easy as it may seem: “it's really hard and intense, but we just really are dedicated to being the best; first in the Caribbean. I personally want to be the best in my division in the world, so I put in a lot of time.

Fred Smith QC: The “Foreigner” can no longer be the Scapegoat! - Jul 21, 2017 - 7:17:37 PM

There has been a lot of agitation and blame  about “Foreigners” raping our  Marine and Fisheries Resources. In my view, this debate and blame game is  misconceived and futile. Simply blaming the "Foreigner" and focusing on "Foreign" depletion and exploitation BUT continuing to allow the same unregulated exploitation and  depletion ONLY by Bahamians, is not the answer. It is a recipe for environmental disaster.

In my view, the challenges faced in the Bahamas, by the rape, pillage, ruin and unsustainable depletion of our Marine and Fisheries Resources, and the unrelenting destruction of our Mangroves and Corals Reefs, requires rational, deliberate and careful attention.

It can perhaps be most effectively addressed by the new FNM  government adopting a more enlightened and effective approach by meaningful  consultation with those most  knowledgeable and  experienced in the field...
