School segregation banned May 17, 1954 The historic ruling of Brown vs Board of Education Topeka (Kansas) was decided May 17, 1954. This ruling determined that racial segregation in educational institutions was unconstitutional. The case arose when Linda Brown, a young girl from Topeka, Kansas was denied admission to her local elementary school because of race.
Hugh Shearerâ€™s Birthday May 18, 1923 Hugh Shearer, the third Prime Minister of Jamaica, was born in 1923 in the parish of Trelawny. His early work with the Jamaican Worker, a weekly trade union newspaper, put him in contact with Sir Alexander Bustamante who took him under his wing and sparked his political career with the Jamaica Labour Party. The Jamaican $5,000 bill bears his likeness.
The da vinci code opens May 19, 2006 The movie adaptation of Dan Brownâ€™s popular fictional work The Da Vinci Code opened in theatres May 19, 2006.

STACy-ann NEILSON name: Stacy-Ann Neilson age: 25 game: PR Specialist & Creator, Lucy Projects How do you usually spend your weekends? At home or a friend’s house watching movies or just hanging out, usually with a bottle of wine. I also try to get my friends together every now and then for a games night.
What has been your most interesting weekend to date? Sumfest 2012. Usually I am busy working at Sumfest but last year was my first year as a patron and I got the chance to cross “Attend a Trey Songz concert” off my bucket list, and then Damian Marley’s performance was just the sweetest cherry on top. Seeing Adele live is next in line.
How would you spend your ideal weekend? A beach villa in Ochi or Portie, with some good friends, food, wine, games and a good book for when I want to get lost in my own little world.
Where’s your favourite place to go out to eat ? I LOVE Cuddyz, I especially love their Grand Stand Burrito. I also love Tea Tree Crêperie’s crepes and magic mint lemonade. As unexciting as this sounds, when I am away, take me to Panda Express or Chipotle and I am a happy HAPPY girl.
Have you had any amazing #wknd experiences outside of Jamaica? Does getting lost in Times Square by myself with a dead cellphone count? Maybe not. I went to Mexico with my family a few years ago. Mexico’s sun is BRUTAL, but it was seven lovely days of Cabo San Lucas’ sun sand and sea - and salsa, tacos and ceviche. I’ve also done Vegas, and that was interesting to say the very least.
Where are some of the places on your bucket-list? My next trip to LA, I am going to an Ellen Show - I am honestly Ellen’s biggest fan. I think every girl would love to roam the streets of Paris and see the Eiffel Tower, but I would love to spend a month in a small city in like Texas or Kentucky where everybody knows everybody, I don’t really know why, but I just want that small city
experience. Outside of the US, I would like to go to Wineglass Bay in Australia, The Palms in Dubai and Bora Bora.
Tell us about LucyProjects... LucyProjects is mainly arm candy: bracelets - cute charms, colored cords and beads. I recently started making sugar body scrubs and it has been doing pretty well. It started as a random DIY thing, that turned into a hobby late last year. I would post pics on Instagram and people became interested, and as they say, the rest is history.

FROG IN A BLENDER It’s as interesting sounding as it is easy to make. The “frog” refers to the lime wheels that will only be slightly blended with the other ingredients. The trick is to avoid blending until smooth as you normally would, only enough to chop things up and mix them together a bit. Garnish creatively and let us know how it turned out! #wkndrcheers
Prep Time: 5 minutes Yield: 1 Cocktail 1 cup of ice 2 oz vodka 4 oz cranberry juice 2 lime wheels
Place all the ingredients in a blender (including the lime wheels). Blend for 3-5 seconds (ingredients will not be completely blended). Pour into a chilled glass.
