MAC STRIKES BACK Bush in war of words with opposition

Premier McKeeva Bush hit back at opposition politicians yesterday, turning accusations of irresponsibility and destroying democracy back on Ezzard Miller and Alden McLaughlin, claiming they were damaging the Cayman Islands. Reacting to public statements by North Side independent Mr Miller and leader of the opposition People’s Progressive Movement (PPM) Mr McLaughlin, the premier told iNews they were “doing a good job of bringing down this country.” “Nothing they say is going to help the economy,” he said. “The vast majority is playing politics, and they are doing nothing to move the economy forward, to bring down the loans and nothing to help people.” The two MLAs -- joined by former PPM leader and George Town MLA Kurt Tibbetts and East End representative Arden McLean, -- accused Mr Bush and his United Democratic Party (UDP) of manipulating the Legislative Assembly to prevent introduction of opposition motions a series of nearly 30 formal questions and all privatemember’s bills.

Police to pursue Kerran’s BBM contacts

CAYMAN INSURANCE CENTRE LTD.

Kerran’s family made a fresh appeal for witnesses on Wednesday

Ivy Lichtenstein ivy.lichtenstein@ieyenews.com

Detectives will aggressively pursue anyone who had contact with Kerran Baker on Blackberry Messenger since the night she disappeared. Despite repeated requests for people to come forward who may have had a BBM conversation with the 25-year-old, police have very few leads. But now they have a source that directs them to a list of names of persons who chatted with Kerran after 7pm on the Saturday night she was last seen. Police say they will “be a bit more intelligently aggressive” since they have asked everyone to come forward who may have had contact with her. Speaking at a press conference yesterday Detective Superintendent Marlon Bodden said: “You will recall that many days ago we actually made an appeal to individuals who may have actually spoken with Kerran via BBM messages. “We have been constant with that appeal asking for anyone who have made contact with her to please contact the police and have a conversation with them. “Unfortunately we didn’t get much co-operation in that regard.” “But rest assured that in the next couple of days my investigators will be knocking on the doors of many of those BBM contacts. “We have given sufficient time for those individuals to voluntarily come and speak to us and because of the fact that they haven’t we will

now go to them and speak to them.” Kerran has been missing since 7pm on July 30th 2011. She was captured on CCTV shopping at Foster’s Airport location. When friends became anxious the next day, they entered her house on Arrow Drive and found her groceries in the kitchen. Her car was found parked on wasteland near Pedro’s Castle. In a press conference earlier this week, the parents of the missing medical worker made a fresh appeal to the public to come forward with any information they may have to assist the police with the investigation.

iStrange Giant rodent native to South America seen in California PASO ROBLES, Calif. (AP) — A giant rodent native to South America has been spotted roaming in a city on California’s Central Coast. Workers at a Paso Robles sewage treatment plant captured photos of the capybara swimming in the water storage pond before making its way toward the Salinas River late last month, The Tribune of San Luis Obispo reported Wednesday. The California Department of Fish and Game estimates the capybara weighs about 100 to 120 pounds and may be the same one seen at a ranch about a mile from the treatment plant a few years ago.

Known as the world’s largest rodent, capybaras have brown hair, short heads and barrelshaped bodies. “We had an idea of what it was, but we knew it wasn’t anything that was native to around here,” Nick Kamp, who works at the treatment plant, told the Los Angeles Times. It’s illegal in California to keep a capybara as a pet. Bob Stafford, a Fish and Game wildlife biologist, said it was likely somebody kept it as a pet and it either escaped or was released into the wild. He said that if there is another capybara sighting at the treatment plant, game wardens will set up traps to capture it and send it to a zoo or animal sanctuary.

Friendly environment for child abuse victims Paul Kennedy paul.kennedy@ieyenews.com

Children who are victims of sexual abuse will be interviewed by specially trained officers in more comfortable surroundings thanks to a new initiative. A groundbreaking deal has been struck between the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service and the Health Services Authority. The memorandum of understanding is to support the critical investigation processes surrounding young and vulnerable victims or witnesses of crime. Police Commissioner David Baines and Lizzette Yearwood, Chief Executive of the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority signed the deal. It has also identified a special site away from police stations where youngsters will feel more comfortable talking about difficult issues. Mrs Yearwood said: “Any child who has been the victim of sexual assault will now be able to be interviewed in a far more child friendly environment. “A clinical psychologist will be able to speak to the child and find out what has happened and so too will officers who will be specially trained to deal with the situations. “The police will be able to carrying out forensic examinations in a place where the child feels more comfortable than in a police station or interview room.” External funding in the Health Service Authority has paid for recording equipment to allow the programme to get off the ground. Mrs Yearwood added: “We are looking forward to partnering with the RCIPS to enhance our approach

to support this vulnerable population and to bring the perpetrators to justice. “It is hoped this will help to make the most cost effective use of both agencies resources whilst supporting the critical needs of victims. The RCIPS Business Manager Mr Peter Davis who steered the memorandum and assisted the two agencies to the agreement said, “This is a cornerstone and ground breaking agreement in safeguarding children that will allow delicate criminal investigations to be conducted through effective partnership and joint working.” He added “It will allow Police Officers to undergo some access to very sophisticated training in child protection interviews and the Health services to continue to develop its support structures in the care and treatment of victims during the investigation processes.”

iStrange Stolen tombstones found during Calif. meth raid LOMA LINDA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities said Wednesday that narcotics investigators raiding a Southern California home during a methamphetamine bust found something odd in the backyard — two dozen granite and marble tombstones. One of the stolen grave markers was traced to the nearby Montecito Memorial Park in Colton, about 50 miles east of Los Angeles, said San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman.

“Some of them may be from other cemeteries,” she said. Investigators were trying to locate family members so the markers can be returned to the proper place in graveyards. The 24 tombstones scattered around the site of Tuesday’s drug bust have an estimated value of $48,000, she said. Deputies said the suspects were selling methamphetamines from the residence. While in the backyard during the raid, deputies noticed tombstones weighing hundreds of pounds each. “The strange thing is, they don’t have any value to these suspects,” Bachman said. “They are made of stone. Sure, they have sentimental value to the families, but they are worth nothing to these people.” During the raid at Loma Linda home, deputies served a search warrant and arrested a resident. John Bleuer was booked for investigation of methamphetamine possession and sales, possession of firearms and possession of stolen property.

The UDP, they said, dominates the assembly’s Standing Business Committee, which determines what comes in front of Parliament’s 15 legislators. It had “consistently made decisions that, when we try to get business listed, we are told to ‘shut up’ and ‘the government is not ready to deal with it,” Mr Miller said. “In my view, the premier and the majority of the committee are refusing to put this business to Parliament,” Mr Miller said, citing three bills he has proposed – to reduce prices of both medicine and gasoline, and implement a minimum wage -- that have been ignored. “In case they vote against them, they will negatively affect their political standing, and they don’t want me or the opposition to get any political credit,” he said. Of greater concern, Mr McLaughlin said, was the damage Mr Bush was doing to democracy by refusing to allow the opposition to participate in legislation.

“The issue of Parliament and when it sits is at the core of democracy,” he said, describing how Mr Bush had manipulated LA rules to weaken the opposition. Mr Bush had adjourned, but never formally closed, an LA meeting on 23 May, meaning successive gatherings, including the most recent 3 August budget announcement, were simply an extension from late May. Because new business must be introduced in advance of an LA meeting, nothing could be added to the agenda. Citing 30 outstanding questions and at least two bills, Mr McLaughlin said his 27 April no-confidence motion and a PPM request to debate major infrastructure projects had been ignored. “I have been here for 11 years and never seen it this bad,” he said, Mr McLean echoed the criticism: ”We have a premier under criminal investigation running the country like a bull in a china shop,” he said, referring to a police probe of alleged financial irregularities by Mr Bush. “We are heading down a road that says to me we are operating a oneparty state.”

Mr Miller said he would call a ”Special Meeting” of the LA to address private members’ concerns, and would contact London’s’ Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Commonwealth Parliamentary Association for “guidance and /or intervention”. Mr Bush rejected the criticism: “This is just to stir up trouble,” he told iNews. ”We are meeting on 7 September, and Alden and Arden were involved in that decision. What are they complaining about? We will sit the whole month and get through as much business as we can, government bills and motions and private bills, motions and questions. It is they who are stifling democracy.”

Muslim threat to TV’s Letterman on June 5 that a drone strike in Pakistan had killed al-Qaida leader Ilyas Kashmiri. Al-Basrawi wrote that Letterman had made reference to both Osama bin Laden and Kashmiri and said that Letterman had “put his hand on his neck and demonstrated the way of slaughter.” “Is there not among you a Sayyid Nosair al-Mairi ... to cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever?” Al-Basrawi wrote, referring to El Sayyid Nosair, who was convicted of the 1990 killing of Jewish Defense League founder Meir Kahane.

Oil sheen found in Gulf of Mexico LONDON (AP) — A new oil sheen has been found in the Gulf of Mexico, although oil giant BP said Thursday the discovery had nothing to do with its operations and was far from the site of its disaster-hit Macondo well. BP spokesman Daren Beaudo said the company had sent several remotely controlled minisubmersibles into the water over the weekend to investigate the source of the sheen — a shiny coating that floats on the surface of the water which could come from leaked or spilled oil — but had concluded “that it couldn’t have been from anything of ours.”

A statement from BP PLC placed the site of the sheen near two abandoned BP exploration well sites in the Green Canyon Block in the Gulf of Mexico. According to an online map published by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Green Canyon Block — a huge squareshaped area of water south of Louisiana — is south and west of the Mississippi Canyon Block where the Macondo well blew up. A U.S. government official also said the area around Macondo was clear. “They are not investing any sheens in the vicinity of the BP well,” Paul Barnard, Operations Controller

The Editor Speaks Speeding and drinking - disaster in the making Colin Wilson

With the sudden spate of road accidents, one a horrific tragedy resulting in the death of a pregnant woman, one wonders why it keeps happening? It would appear that both speeding and drinking was the cause of this one. Undue care and attention is also a contributing factor along with irresponsible flaunting of the rules of the road. No matter how many warnings are given out by the police, by themselves and through all the media outlets; no matter how many horrific pictures are shown; no matter how many deaths and terrible maiming of survivors of the crashes occur; no one seems to think it can happen to them. It can. It does! It will!! Penalties for driving under the influence have increased. Fines for speeding have increased. Police presence on our roads has increased. Public awareness of speeding and drinking has increased (by advertising campaigns in the

colin.wilson@ieyenews.com

iLocal

press, television and at the cinema). Our roads have better infrastructure and is the envy of most Caribbean countries. This should make our roads safer. We have restrictive speed limits. Is there anymore we can do? The answer has to be ‘Yes’. So what more can we do? I would welcome the RCIPS, CI Roads Advisory Council and other similar bodies including the service clubs, to get together and come up with some innovative ideas in how we can do better. For instance, is enough done in the schools to educate our youth that speeding and drinking kill? Does our advertising need to be more graphic? A very vivid campaign showing the horrors of drunken driving done a few years ago in Canada reaped rewards despite much debate when it was brought in initially – most of which was negative. If, showing a blood spattered mangled body and hearing people crying uncontrollably stops a death on our roads - isn’t it worth it?

Mac to speak at Miami conference Premier Hon. McKeeva Bush will be among the speakers at a first-ofits-kind infrastructure conference organised by KPMG. The event will be held in Miami next month, focusing on the challenges faced by small islands when financing and building new infrastructure. A major theme of the event “Infrastructure Summit: An Island Perspective of a Global Challenge” will be the public-private partnerships (PPP) of the kind used by Bermuda in the project to build a new hospital, an example Bermudian Premier Paula Cox is sure to refer to at the event. Additionally, KPMG will bring out its global head of infrastructure Nick Chism, and its Americas head of global infrastructure, Stephen Beatty. Participants with expertise in PPP, including financiers, lawyers and government officials, will also take part in the panels and presentations in the event. Malcolm Butterfield, a partner at KPMG in Bermuda, said the first day of the conference would

focus on infrastructure from a current perspective while day two would focus on the future for PPP. PPP can have particular benefits for small island economies, Mr. Butterfield said. “Effectively you can use someone else’s money not the government’s to finance an infrastructure project,” he said. “The winning bidder must provide the financing, so it doesn’t strain a country’s debt or capital capacity.” Given that the resources of many island governments are limited in these times of stretched budgets, the idea of transferring the financing burden and risk to the private sector, coupled with the fact that infrastructure projects provide stimulus to the economy, means that interest in PPPs is intensifying. “I think we’ll see a wave of PPP and that it could end up being a sector in itself,” Mr Butterfield said. Mr Butterfield said islands should view PPPs from a global perspective, as often the capital, experience and expertise to manage such a project would need to come from overseas,

• Glitter • Yarn • Fabric Dye • Craft Glue • Acrylic Paint • Watercolour while local subcontractors would likely be hired to carry out much of the work. This set-up could lead to another benefit for small economies in the transference of knowledge and expertise from the project manager to the local participants, he added. However, PPP projects involve significant risks and have sometimes ended badly in the past. “A few decades ago PPP did have some disasters,” he said. “PPP has evolved a long way since then and with the right planning, the right key components successfully accomplished, it can create many benefits for island jurisdictions.”

STARSS Job Fair Twenty-one Support Towards Autonomy Retraining and Self Sufficiency (STARSS) programme participants sought work by attending a public-private sector mini-job fair recently. The 18 women and three men had already completed their six week training period. “Two job fairs are held for them each year, enabling participants to actively seek employment,” said Programme Coordinator Cassandra Parchment. Developed and facilitated by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), STARSS aims to empower job seekers by furthering their skills and thus their employability. Five training sessions are conducted annually, with the latest being the third for 2011. Jobs and the suitability of trainees for particular jobs are assessed in conjunction with the Department of Employment Relations (DER), which maintains a register of unemployed persons and local employment opportunities.

(L-R) DCFS Social Worker’s Cindy Dilbert and Tynisa Forsythe and STARSS Coordinator Cassandra Parchment ensure the job-fair runs smoothly.

Ms. Parchment explained that the recent job fair – held in space donated by the Mirco Centre – partnered seven local employers with the DER, in a joint effort to match participants with work openings. Jobs on offer were from the tourism sector, customer service, retail marketing and office administration.

Minister of Community Affairs, Gender and Housing, the Hon.

And it is a win-win initiative, for STARSS also offers a helping hand to persons who are taking the initiative to better themselves.” Applauding her staff’s consistent efforts to provide the service, DCFS Deputy Director Alicia ’Jen’ Dixon emphasised that participants train to make themselves more employable. Topics covered include résumé writing, enhancing communication and working skills, self-esteem building and work ethics. DCFS staff members Barbara Gee, Cindy Dilbert, Donnette MorrisSeymour and Tynisa Forsythe assisted participants at the fair and helped set it up. To interview the trainees for employment, STARSS teamed up with employers, Lindsey Gordon and Michelle Gibbon of Stepping Stones; Deborah Beck (Tortuga Rum); Ahisha Bodden (Kirk Supermarket and Kirk Marine); Marie Powell and Iranna Baligar (C.L.

SOY Award Programme to benefit students To raise funds to implement a special awards programme for Cayman’s students, the Save Our Youth Foundation is holding a gospel concert at the George Town Annex on 27 August 2011. The Cayman Gospel Explosion will feature many prominent acts and is expected to be the largest event of its kind. Guest of honour, Premier McKeeva Bush, will be singing. The more than 30 performers already confirmed to appear include Cayman Youth Choir, Rasheema Henry, Vanessa Y. Williams, First Baptist Church Choir, Final Hour, Kelly Sisters, Potters Clay and Pauze Entertainment. Pastor Felix Manzaneres, Young Caymanian Leadership Award finalist in 2010, is the dynamic guest speaker. This is a not-to-be-missed event and a great chance to show your support for the young people of Cayman. The SOY Achievement Medallion Award Programme was created by the SOY Foundation to acknowledge those students who ordinarily would not be singled out in a positive way, whose dayto-day acts of kindness or aboveand-beyond efforts go unnoticed. Perhaps a student has improved his academic standing. Maybe he or she has demonstrated a love of learning or an extraordinary aptitude in a certain class. Or maybe a student has demonstrated an exemplary attitude or behaviour. Some lead by example. Others are quietly determined to learn, no matter what the obstacles. SOY Foundation President Kimberlee McLean-Bryan explained the importance of the award: “SOY believes that these students need to be recognized and rewarded for their diligence. Not everyone can be an “A” student but there are certainly many young people who should get an “A” for their efforts. It is our belief and hope that students who are recognised in this way will be motivated to continue on their positive path and inspire others to do the same,” she said.

Tickets for the Cayman Gospel Explosion, which starts at 7pm, cost $10 and are available at Funky Tang’s and Roper’s every day, and at Foster’s Airport and Strand locations on Saturday, 20 and 27 August. Tickets will also be sold at the gate on the night of the event. Children under 18 will be admitted free. Ticket holders will be automatically entered into a prize draw. The SOY Foundation would like to thank the following companies for generously donating prizes: Dolphin Discovery, Al La Kebab, Captain Marvin’s Watersports and ToursCayman. There is still an opportunity for other companies to donate prizes and their participation would be greatly appreciated. The SOY Achievement Medallion Award Programme expands on SOY’s commitment to recognising and motivating young people in our community. Recently, at two graduation ceremonies, the organization handed out SOY Community Service Awards to several students. These awards honour students who are committed to community service

and recognize their compassion in fostering humanitarian values. Through this award, SOY also hopes to highlight the positive achievements of students who have gone beyond the call of duty to reach out to their peers, school and community. Award winners this year were Latoya Bush and Jose Ardila of John Gray High School, and Ariana Bain and Brandon Minton of Triple C School. Latoya spoke about what the award meant to her. “I felt very honoured upon receiving the Save our Youth Outstanding Community Service Award. It gave me a boost to my self-confidence and it also symbolizes a step towards a brighter future. Receiving this award gave me a sense of self-pride and has shown me appreciation for my dedication. It also gives me a willing sprit to continue helping out in my community,” she said.

Caledonian staff members put on the gloves and help RPCU beautify Teacher Al Al park. Last year the Caledonian Group set a goal to plant 40 native trees across Cayman to represent each year that the company has been present on the island. Earlier this month, twelve volunteers from the Group dedicated their morning to getting their hands in the dirt and planting the first batch of the company’s purchased 40 trees. The event took place at Teacher Al Al Park in the district of West Bay and was in collaboration with Government Recreation, Parks and Cemeteries Unit (RPCU). The collaboration was a perfect fit as government maintained public parks present the greatest opportunity to give back and help support greener, more environmentally-friendly places for the community. The Caledonian team planted nine seagrape and thirteen cocoplum trees around the park and has plans

16

to continue these environmental efforts with more tree plantings scheduled for other public parks. “We believe that it is essential that as a firm and as individuals who live and work in this community, that we should do what we can to preserve our environment” expressed Caledonian Managing Director, Bernard McGrath. “The trees planted are not only beautiful, but they will help absorb storm water during heavy rains and will also improve air quality for us all. Planting trees is just one aspect of Caledonian’s larger plan to help preserve this environment for future generations.” The West Bay planting event was inaugurated by new Caledonian Managing Director Barry McQuain and RPCU’s Acting General Manager Mikol Watler, by placing

commemorative signage in the park. At the signage installation event, Mr. Watler thanked Caledonian for its contribution, acclaiming them for their hands on role in making the island greener. The partners and management of Caledonian are committed to achieving a real and sustainable positive impact in Cayman’s community. The organisation’s “Forty Trees for Forty Years” initiative focuses on the environment and hopes to be the first initiative in a series of ongoing efforts to promote and support endemic plant life.

So... What really is an Android? Claire O’Dea

One of the most recent additions to the Tech Dictionary is “Android” which can be easily defined as “an operating software”. Like Apple’s iOS, Android operating software focuses on efficiency and enhancing the features of mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets. In 2005, Android, an infant company, was acquired by Google and has since produced a flexible, upgradeable system. The debut Android platform phone, the ‘HTC Dream’, was released in 2008. As consumer awareness grew, 2010 was a year of great successes for Android, mainly attributable to HTC’s collaboration with Google and launching its flagship Android device, the ‘Nexus One’, and Samsung releasing the ‘Nexus-S’. Since the original version of the software in 2007, many features have been added to enhance performance, functionality and user-friendliness. Android’s open source nature (anyone has access to the coding) has resulted in companies and individuals developing many innovative applications. The Android Market (application store run by Google) now has over 200,000 applications which have contributed significantly to the extended functionality of the devices. Android’s multitasking capabilities, customization, performance and open source platform are the main contributors to this system’s rapid growth. It has gained much popularity among developers and has proved a huge success in the Smartphone market. It is expected that Android will further establish brand image and awareness and continue to prove very successful in the highly competitive Smartphone market.

Malignant Melanoma Dr. Lynn Dawber info@ieyenews.com Dr Lynn Dawber is a South African national joining The International Medical Group from New Zealand where she has been practicing for a number of years. She is a welcome additional to our family and we look forward to our patients (new and existing) meeting her.

Malignant melanoma is one of the leading causes of skin cancer. It is not a cancer limited to fair skin and the incidence is on the rise especially due to the thinning ozone layer. There are several factors that can increase one’s risk of developing melanoma, including; a large number of moles, atypical moles, frequent sun exposure and sunburn during childhood and a family history of melanoma. Early detection of melanoma involves doctors being aware of the signs of melanoma and being aware of patients at risk. People are encouraged to report suspicious lesions and periodic full body checks are recommended for those at risk. Melanoma is significantly less common in darker skinned people, but the presentation tends to be thicker or more advanced lesions with an increased risk of death. In darker skinned people they also tend to occur more on palms, soles of feet and under nails. Signs that foot lesions may be melanoma: CUBED • Coloured lesions on any part where the skin is not usually coloured. • Uncertain diagnosis • Bleeding lesions on the foot/ under nail • Enlargement of a lesion despite treatment • Delay in healing (>2mths) Atypical or unusual moles are moles that are “funny-looking”. Most tend to develop during childhood, but it is unusual to develop after the age of 50. Moles that have three or more of the following criteria are atypical: to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

• A – Asymmetrical • B- Border blurry or ill-defined • C- Colour variation especially more than 3

• D- Diameter more than 5-6mm.

Risk Factors for melanoma include: 1. Increasing age especially above 60. Only 1-2% of moles develop in children, but again, the presentation tends to be later and more advanced. 2. Past history of melanoma or nonmelanoma form of skin cancer. 3. A family history of melanoma. 10% of people with melanoma have a first degree relative with a history of melanoma. 4. More than 100 moles present increases risk. 5. More than 5 atypical moles result in a six fold increase in risk. 6. UV Radiation including sunbed exposure and especially burning during childhood. 7. Males have an increased risk for developing melanoma in this part of the world. Men tend to have lesions on the trunk and women on the legs. 8. Skin type: the fairer the skin or the easier you burn, the increased risk.

The Fitzpatrick skin type chart TYPE 1: Highly sensitive, always burns, never tans. Eg. Red hair with freckles TYPE 2: Very sun sensitive, burns easily, tans minimally. Eg. Fair skinned, fair haired Caucasians TYPE 3: Sun sensitive skin, sometimes burns, slowly tans to light brown. Eg. Darker Caucasians. TYPE 4: Minimally sun sensitive, burns minimally, always tans to moderate brown. Eg. Mediterranian type Caucasians. TYPE 5: Sun insensitive skin, rarely burns, tans well. Eg. Some Hispanics, some Blacks TYPE 6: Sun insensitive, never burns, deeply pigmented. Eg. Darker Blacks. Early detection of melanoma improves survival. And thus self examination is important. Ask another person to help you or use 2 mirrors. A hairdryer is useful for examining the scalp. Look out for funny looking moles in scars. Suspicious lesions should be biopsied. The “ugly duckling” sign The rationale for this is that most moles in and individual are similar in appearance. Thus a lesion that is not like the others should receive special attention, even though it may not raise suspicion on the basis of other tools. It is most useful for patients with a large number of atypical moles. Eg In a patient with multiple but similar atypical lesions, eg red brown with irregular borders, the ugly duckling lesion may be a small, well defined black mole. Sun protection and melanoma Be sun smart. In the middle of the day it can take 15min for fair skin to burn. Avoid sun exposure between 11-4 and avoid sunbeds “Slip, slop, slap, seek and wrap” – slip into protective clothing, slop on sunscreen of SPF 30+ and reapply every 2 hours, slap on a hat, seek shade and wrap some good quality sunglasses on.

OPINION

Don’t allow them here

“Banning the song from radio, or blocking the live performance, will not squelch it”

Dave Martins dave.martins@ieyenews.com

In recent years, with the emergence of dance-hall music, some countries in the Caribbean have taken to banning certain artistes (Buju Banton; Mavado; Lady Saw) on the basis that their live performances promote violence, vulgarity, homophobia, etc. The controversy has come to the fore in Barbados, Trinidad, Cayman and Guyana, and, in a few cases, has even propelled the radio station banning of certain songs by these very popular artistes. Mavado Indeed, the very popularity of many of these songs fuels what is reporting, but the essential base remains – it is reality based. clearly a vexatious problem. However, the critical view, in the In the first place, in almost all of these arts restraint issues, where case of Mavado – and in others with cultures are seen as under attack, lyrics that are seen as degrading – a central factor is that the creative is that, while these traumas exist, outputs are almost always a reflection the artistic glorification of such of the society that spawns them. behaviours (violence; thuggery; gay The artist is simply mirroring, not bashing; etc) should not be allowed; propelling. Bob Dylan, for example, such recordings should be banned was not leading American youth and permission for live performances with his protest songs a few decades refused. The contrasting view is ago; he was scratching around as a that artistic expression should not folk performer in the Woody Guthrie be restrained by the state, full stop, genre, dabbling in traditional songs, because that stifles freedom and until he began singing about the creativity. Whichever side you’re on issues he was hearing from the you will meet opposition, and the young people of his own time. He complexities abound. Influence, in fact, is almost was not leading them anywhere; he was actually simply describing impossible to establish. More germanely, in keeping with the where they had gone. The rap singers in the US are previous point, the sociologist will tell talking about the life they know you that singers such as Mavado and firsthand in the ghetto. The raw Buju are not influencing anyone; that violent scenarios in a Mavado in fact what they do is a result of the song come from a life that he sees world they inhabit influencing them, every day around him. The Chilean instead of the other way around. Furthermore, by definition, singers performing in the coffeehouses in Toronto in the 1970s were “popular music” means the material singing about life under Pinochet as has somehow caught public favour, they knew it. Those artists are not which means the public wants to creating the behaviours; they are hear it, and a promoter will inevitably simply reporting them. Admittedly, present an artiste purely on that basis many times they go beyond simply – wide public appeal – and so the

wheel turns. If the majority have voted their approval – by buying the product – shouldn’t the wheel be allowed to turn? Furthermore, is anything achieved by such bans? If the music is popular it is being widely played, or copied. It is already in people’s minds. In this internet and iPod world, banning the song from radio, or blocking the live performance, will not squelch it. The people who made it popular in the first place will continue to give it their approval, and they will show up and roar as the objectionable song comes out of the speakers. I see the need to raise concerns about material that is degrading to mankind, but I think we have to protest its appearance knowing that it’s unlikely we are changing attitudes. I also commend the contention that some resistance is better than no resistance at all, but to iterate where I started: this is very vexatious problem. Popular artistic exercises almost always have a life of their own with a fire that continues to burn despite all the water we sometimes throw on them. Offensive as they are to many, rap videos with women as mute sexual objects continue to proliferate; despite the fervent complaints about lewd dancing in soca shows, it continues to attract crowds; the inane lyrics of the “jump and wave” writers that have some of us shaking our heads don’t seem to bother the party crowd one iota. The lesson there is that while some of us find these things offensive, or inane, many more of us find appeal in them and flock to those expressions. Cultures, whether in either majority or minority positions, ultimately choose what they want. It has always been so, and there is no evidence that things are about to change.

Summer Camp 2011

We continue our serialisation of Anne by Constance Fenimore Woolson

Anne

“Will you, Annet? I will yield if you promise.”

Part 27

“Please do not come, Rast,” said the girl again, laying her hand on his arm. “I shall go to take care of you.” “It is not necessary; we have old Antoine and his dogs, and the boys are to have a sled of their own. We shall be at home before dark, I think, and if not, the moon tonight is full.” “But I shall go,” said Rast. “Nonsense!” said Miss Lois. “Of course you will not go; Anne is right. You romp and make mischief with those children always. Behave now, and you shall come back this evening, and Anne shall come too, and we will have apples and nuts and gingerbread, and Anne shall recite.” “Will you, Annet? I will yield if you promise.” “If I must, I must,” said Anne, reluctantly. “Go, then, proud maid; speed upon your errand. And in the mean time, Miss Lois, something fragrant and spicy in the way of a reward now would not come amiss, and then some music.” Among the possessions, which Miss Lois had inherited from her aunt, was a small piano. The elder Miss Hinsdale, sent into the world with an almost Italian love of music, found herself unable to repress it even in cold New England; turning it, therefore, into the channel of the few stunted psalms and hymns and spiritual songs of the day, she indulged it in a cramped fashion, like a full-flowing stream shut off and made to turn a mill. When the missionary spirit seized her in its fiery whirlwind, she bargained with it mentally that her piano should be included; she represented to the doubting elder that it would be an instrument of great power among the savages, and that even David himself accompanied the psalms with a well-stringed harp. The elder still doubted; he liked a tuning fork; and besides, the money, which to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

Miss Priscilla would pay for the transportation of “the instrument”, was greatly needed for boots for the young men. But as Miss Priscilla was a free agent, and quite determined, he finally decided, like many another leader, to allow what he could not prevent, and the piano came. It was a small, old-fashioned instrument, which had been kept in tune by Dr. Douglas, and through long years the inner life of Miss Lois, her hopes, aspirations, and disappointments, had found expression through its keys. It was a curious sight to see the old maid sitting at her piano alone on a stormy evening, the doors all closed, the shutters locked, no one stirring in the church-house save herself. Her playing was old-fashioned, her hands stiff; she could not improvise, and the range of the music she knew was small and narrow, yet unconsciously it served to her all the purposes of emotional expression. When she was sad, she played “China”; when she was hopeful, “Coronation.” She made the bass heavy in dejection, and played the air in octaves when cheerful. She played only when she was entirely alone. The old piano was the only confidant of the hidden remains of youthful feeling buried in

her heart. Rast played on the piano and the violin in an untrained fashion of his own, and Anne sang; they often had small concerts in Miss Lois’s parlor. But a greater entertainment lay in Anne’s recitations. These were all from Shakespeare. Not in vain had the chaplain kept her tied to its pages year after year; she had learned, almost unconsciously, as it were, large portions of the immortal text by heart, and had formed her own ideals of the characters, who were to her real persons, although as different from flesh-and-blood people as are the phantoms of a dream. They were like spirits who came at her call, and lent her their personality; she could identify herself with them for the time being so completely, throw herself into the bodies and minds she had constructed for them so entirely, that the effect was startling, and all the more so because her conceptions of the characters were girlish and utterly different from those that have ruled the dramatic stage for generations. Her ideas of Juliet, of Ophelia, of Rosalind, and Cleopatra were her own, and she never varied them; the very earnestness of her personations made the effect all the more extraordinary. Dr. Gaston had never heard these recitations of his pupil; William Douglas had never heard them; either of these men could have corrected her errors and explained to her her mistakes. She herself thought them too trifling for their notice; it was only a way she had of amusing herself. Even Rast, her playmate, found it out by chance, coming upon her among the cedars one day when she was Ophelia, and overhearing her speak several lines before she saw him; he immediately constituted himself an audience of one, with, however, the peremptory manners of a throng, and demanded to hear all she knew. Poor Anne! The great plays of the world had been her fairy tales; she knew no others.

Car Accidents

Post traumatic stress disorder Georgina Wilcox georgina.wilcox@ieyenews.com

Our society is plagued by selfinduced stress. Should this be something we pop pills for? Retrospectively, society accepts the unhealthiness of prior forms of medicated stress relief. It is generally accepted that smoking, for example, causes more problems than it relieves. Why do we swallow anti-anxiety medication so freely, without worrying about harmful side effects? These are powerful drugs that target chemicals in the brain. Medication should be the last resort in any anti-anxiety therapy. First, people who suffer anxiety should be proactive and try to resolve their concerns. One example of a disorder that is suddenly widely prescribed is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD was first recognized in the USA as a serious problem among veterans returning from war. These men suffered cold sweats, panic attacks, nightmares, and compulsive behaviour as a result of near death experiences and the mental anguish of war. Some doctors worldwide are now claiming that this same level of shock is regularly induced in car accidents and cite numbers as high as 9% of car accident victims suffer ‘significant post-traumatic stress symptoms’. A few years ago, a member of my family was in a serious car accident, and he experienced symptoms like PTSD. Dwelling on the accident would often upset him. He displayed obsessive behaviour by avoiding left turns wherever possible, even on deserted streets. He couldn’t manage this on all roads, but in George Town he was careful to take three right turns instead of making just one left. I have noticed when he rides in my car and I have to slam on my breaks, it causes him to spin around and look behind for the car that always seems to be on the verge of collision. Thankfully, he is getting a lot better now. What he did to overcome these

symptoms was to be proactive. He worked with the insurance companies to work out the claims. He took responsibility for the situation and did not let it take control of him. He confided to me that it did hurt to think about his car for months, but he didn’t obsess about it anymore. If you feel overwhelmed by a car accident experience and all of your real medical needs are met, you do not need a doctor. Talk to a lawyer about your situation and be proactive about filing papers and taking action. As he tells me all the time, “If you do this, no pills are required.”

According to the latest police statistics, there were 1,374 road accidents in Cayman last year, which included seven deaths. Although accidents increased by 4% in 2010 compared to 2009, the history of road traffic accidents in Cayman is high. In 2008, there were over 1,500 smashes and 1,430 in 2007. Some 8,600 offences were recorded last year, down 23% on the 2009 figure of a staggering 11,180 tickets, but this was still a very high number. Despite the continued campaigns by the RCIPS and the pleas from senior officers, the accident toll remains disproportionate for the size of the driving population and the miles of road, with many accidents being single vehicle crashes. Nearly all of these car accident deaths can be avoided. David Baines, the RCIPS Commissioner said recently that the 300 collisions that took place in the last sixweeks or so of last year were a clear indication that much more needed to be done to educate drivers. “Drink

Driving, the use of cell phones while driving, speed and appalling driving standards are endemic and all of these issues will be addressed in our planned National Road Safety Strategy” he said. “Too many lives have been lost on our roads.” Reckless and drunk driving are serious offenses and the law treats a car, when it causes injuries, as a dangerous weapon. When victims are injured or killed in drunk driving accidents, the driver can be charged the same as if he or she had attacked their victims with any other weapon, like a gun. A drunk driver who kills a person can be sent to prison for murder. Such dangerous activities as drunk driving and racing are often treated casually by young people, but they do not understand the inherent risks associated with this behaviour. In the U.S every twelve minutes somebody dies in a car accident. If you or somebody you love has been involved in a car accident, either as a driver or as a victim, it is important to seek legal counsel. Remember, if you are involved in an accident, never to apologise or accept responsibility without consulting a lawyer. Car crashes are scary, but apologising on the scene can fix the blame on you even if the collision is another driver’s fault. A lawyer can help you work out the necessary paperwork and protect you from accusations and court proceedings. Insurance companies have lawyers protecting their interests, shouldn’t you? Finally, do not panic. As drivers become more aware of their responsibilities and car companies develop safer vehicles, the percentage of deaths in car crashes should steadily decline. When combined with safe, responsible driving techniques, such as acknowledging posted speed limits, wearing seatbelts, and going out with designated drivers, these new cars and advanced roadways promise a safer driving experience. to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

Limericks Georgina Wilcox georgina.wilcox@ieyenews.com

Writen by : Victoria Anderson

APPLY SUNSCREEN PROPERLY.

The end of the school year is here and savvy moms and dads by now have made all the arrangements for summer. Summer camps and leisurely days at the pool or beach are just a few of the summer rituals for many families. However if you're tempted to let your child play outdoors for even a few minutes without proper sun protection, you might want to think twice. Adolescence and childhood are critical periods during which exposure to UV radiation is more likely to contribute to skin cancer in later life. Children with fair skin, blond or red hair and blue or green eyes are at the highest risk of sunburn. But darker-skinned children also need sun protection. With this in mind, it’s important that parents teach their children how to enjoy fun in the sun safely.

LIMIT OUTDOOR PLAYTIME BETWEEN 10A.M. AND 4P.M.

Apply a thick, even coat to all exposed areas 20 - 30 minutes before your child goes out in the sun. Choose a sunscreen with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 15 or higher. Make sure it's labeled "broad spectrum," which means it blocks both UVA and UVB sunlight. For your little ones, sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide should be selected as these compounds are less irritating than others. Sunscreen sticks are best for the face because they are sweat proof and less likely to drip. Don't forget nose, ears, hands, feet, shoulders, and behind the neck; lips can also burn, so apply a lip balm with SPF protection. Reapply sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours, or after sweating or swimming.

COVER FROM HEAD TO TOE. Wearing protective clothing and hats is one of the primary ways of warding off UV damage. When wet, light coloured clothing transmits just as much sunlight as bare skin. Keep your kids covered with dark colours, long sleeves, and pants whenever possible. And don't forget the accessories: sunglasses with UV protection to guard against burned corneas, and hats to prevent sunburned scalps and faces. Protective clothing, hats with wide brims, and sunglasses are just as important for babies. At the beach, bring along a large umbrella.

Parents, you are the best teacher by practicing sun safety yourself. If your child sees you following sun safety rules, he'll take them for granted and follow suit. Teach every member of the family how to protect their skin and eyes. With proper supervision, children can learn to protect themselves and enjoy summer fun without sacrificing the health of their skin.

Avoid unnecessary exposure when the sun's rays are at their strongest. Even on cloudy or cooler days, ultraviolet (UV) rays remain strong. Shady spots can be just as tricky because of reflected light. If your child is playing outdoors during these hours, make sure to apply ample sunscreen.

WATCH OUT FOR MEDICATIONS. Some medications increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun, so make sure to ask your doctor whether your child may be at risk. Prescription antibiotics and acne medications are the most notorious culprits, but when in doubt, ask.

I love limericks. They are five line poems written with one couplet and one triplet. The rhyme pattern is “a a b b a” with lines 1, 2 and 5 containing 3 beats and rhyming, and lines 3 and 4 having two beats and rhyming. Some people say that soldiers returning from France to the Irish town of Limerick in the 1700’s invented the limerick. Here are some examples: There once was an old man of Lyme Who married three wives at a time When asked “Why a third?” He replied, “One’s absurd! And bigamy, Sir, is a crime.” There was a young fellow named Hammer Whose had an unfortunate stammer “The b-bane of my life” Said he, “Is m-m-my wife D-d-d-d-d-d-damn ëer!” She made friends with a young undertaker; Her last boyfriend had forsaken her. But she started to curse When he turned up in a hearse. She said next time I’ll date a baker! There was a young lady named Constance, From boys she wouldn’t stand any nonsense. If her partners grew deft She would lead with her left; The results would not weigh on her conscience. My sweetheart and I are just wed. Already I wish I were dead. Two weeks she’s been spending. It was time never ending. We are thousands of pounds in the red!

Limericks are fairly easy to write if you can rhyme well. Have fun and send them into me for publication on iNews.

It is understood the club has now lodged a listing application with the Singapore Stock Exchange. The move could raise between £400m and £600m for the club. It is understood the club wants to complete the listing by the end of the year. The Glazers removed the Old Trafford club from the London stock market following their successful take over of the Old Trafford club in 2005. A partial share sale, of between 25% and 30%, would also mean that no outside person could take control of the club. At the same time, it would provide the Glazers with much needed revenues that would help pay down some of the debt that was taken on to finance the takeover. As well as the debt issue, analysts have seen a Singapore listing as an aggressive move by the club to create an even bolder presence in Asia. United has more than 300 million fans around the world and more than 190 million of those are in Asia. The region has become a growth area for the club and other Premier League teams. The flotation would also be an opportunity to see what value the stock market put on Manchester United, with an overall valuation of the club of anything up to £1.7bn.

“I didn’t have a chance to open the playbook,” he said with a laugh. “But I’ve always been pretty good at learning as I go along. We did a little bit of that today, but I’ll be knee-deep in the playbook tonight.” The once-promising linebacker was waived by Buffalo on Monday after two disappointing seasons in which he had no sacks and never made it into the starting lineup. The Jets will give Maybin the opportunity to fulfill the potential he showed when the Bills made him the 11th overall pick in 2009 out of Penn State. “He has no clue and doesn’t know a single defense, but it was like, ‘Hey, just turn that corner,’ and he did that pretty good,” coach Rex Ryan said of Maybin jumping right into things. “That was great.” Maybin — nicknamed “Maybe” by some disappointed Bills fans — struggled to keep his weight up while with Buffalo and appeared in only 11 games last season.

Her decision to rest her troublesome right foot cost the women’s bracket yet another high-profile player and raised doubts about her readiness for the U.S. Open. “I don’t think this is a good time for me to take a big chance,” she said, after the big toe on her right foot bothered her during a morning workout. “I just don’t think that would be smart.” She was the latest high-profile woman to drop out of the Cincinnati-area tournament, which combined a women’s event and the men’s Masters for the first time this season. Sister Venus Williams withdrew before the start because of a virus that also forced her to sit out the tournament in Toronto. Defending champion Kim Clijsters couldn’t play because of an injured abdomen. The tournament also lost top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki on Wednesday afternoon. Wozniacki dropped her opening match for the second consecutive week, falling to American Christina McHale 6-4, 7-5 in the second round. Third-seeded Victoria Azarenka withdrew before her evening match because of a strained right hand.

Kids are boxing clever at summer camp

(Left to right): Thomas C. Ebanks Jr. Gym President, Coach Tracey Seymour, Coach Norman Wilson, Javier Ardila, and Coach Timothy Ebanks

Christopher Tobutt christopher.tobutt@ieyenews.com

Judging by the big smiles on their faces, kids had a knockout time at D. Dalmain Ebanks Boxing Gym’s summer camp. Over forty kids from six years old and up were having lots of fun learning to box, at the gym’s firstever summer camp for kids. Camp supervisor and gym President Thomas C. Ebanks Jr. said, “We put on the camp to give the kids something to do during their summer vacation. We realised during these economic times we needed to give parents a positive environment to enroll their kids in for the summer. Its completely free and we provide breakfast and lunch every day,” he said. The camp is run by the Department of Sport, who have subsidised all the gym’s programmes since the previous government built the gym

in 2009, Mr. Ebanks said. “It’s a great avenue for us to reach young potential boxers and get them interested in the sport,” Mr. Ebanks added. “What makes the programme so beneficial is we have four former junior boxers assisting Coach Norman Wilson with delivering the programme,” he said. The gym also holds an afterschool programme five days a week, during term time. They have also introduced the sport to Red Bay, Sir John A. Cumber, and George Town Primary Schools. Regular boxing training offers many benefits to kids, Mr. Ebanks believes. “It teaches them to control aggression, and gives them an avenue to vent their frustration, and teaches them how to live with people despite their differences,” he said. Nine-year old Joshua McField and 11-year old Aman Abdul-Hakim were all smiles after their match. Aman

said, “I have enjoyed the camp because I’ve learned stuff and it was fun.” Ten-year old Javier Ardila was commended by coaches Norman Wilson and Tracey Seymour because he was prepared to have a match with a girl, 9-year old Kamaya Samuels who won. But there were no hard feelings afterwards and again it was all smiles. “You learn a lot of things about boxing. It’s a fun sport.” Javier said. “I only started this week. My cousin said I should come along. I think it’s educational and fun, and I am going to go to the after-schools programme.” added Kamaya. Fifteen-year old Sivia Rudon, one of the seven girl boxers at the camp said, “I like boxing because it makes me feel more empowered. When the girls came to the camp, a lot of the boys were saying, “they’re girls. They’re not going to do anything,’ then after a while, they saw we were just as good as them.”
