Al Jazeera reports on Baha Mar and Bahamas - China relations - Oct 6, 2015 - 1:07:07 PM

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...

Clarion Call For Collective Action Amongst Caribbean International Financial Services Sector - Oct 5, 2015 - 5:33:46 PM

The future of financial institutions in the Caribbean is under serious threat if no pro-active collective action is taken now. Regulatory changes within recent times have made it increasingly difficult with an ever increasing demand on financial resources just to keep up with the pace and breadth of change. If this trend continues financial institutions in the Caribbean region could be severely challenged to provide the level and types of services to its customer base. The impact of this could ultimately result in high unemployment rates, brain drain, poverty and even economic chaos in the whole region.

This was the main concern of participants of the workshop ‘Caribbean Banking and the Caribbean International Financial Services Sector’ which was held in Curaçao on September 30-October 1, 2015 by the Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) in conjunction with Caribbean-Central American Action (CCAA). The workshop acted as a precursor to the Global Forum of the Organization for Economic...

NASA Confirms Evidence That Liquid Water Flows on Today’s Mars - Sep 28, 2015 - 11:46:28 AM

New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.

Using an imaging spectrometer on MRO, researchers detected signatures of hydrated minerals on slopes where mysterious streaks are seen on the Red Planet. These darkish streaks appear to ebb and flow over time. They darken and appear to flow down steep slopes during warm seasons, and then fade in cooler seasons. They appear in several locations on Mars when temperatures are above minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 23 Celsius), and disappear at colder times...
