$3.5M LOST AT SEA

Huge amount of cruise ship cash gone in one week

Tad Stoner tad.stoner@ieyenews.com

Cayman lost $3.5 million in tourism revenues last week alone when 10 cruise ships skipped the island because of high seas, bypassing even Spotts Landing, supposed foul-weather alternative to George Town. More than half-a-million dollars in landing fees and the average $90 spend per tourist were lost when the 35,000 passengers aboard those 10 ships did not disembark, underscoring the loss of almost 14% of cruise-tourist days during high season. Offering a remedy on Tuesday in George Town’s Seafarer’s Hall, architect Burns Conolly, joined by West Bay community leader, businessman and former independent political candidate Reginald “Choppy” Delepenha and at least four Cayman seacaptains, unveiled increasingly detailed plans for a fiveberth cruise-ship dock in South Sound, claiming the location was superior to George Town.

Art – the ultimate stress relief

Artist Paula Ross with her work

Paul Kennedy paul.kennedy@ieyenews.com

After a tough day in the classroom teaching the children of Cayman, Paula Ross has only one way to unwind. For some it may be a glass of wine, or a hot soak in the tub, but not Paula, who teaches at St Ignatius. She heads straight to her gallery at her home in Snug Harbour and gets cracking on her latest masterpiece.

Works by Paula Ross on display at Full of Beans Cafe

Originally from Tyneside in the UK, Paula has spent 21 years living in Cayman. This week an exhibition of her mosaic art work opened at the Full of Beans Café in Pasadora Place. Her work is a mixture of vibrant and bright colours that, in her mind, depict the Caribbean lifestyle that has influenced her work. She also creates quilt work – using the same array of colours and style of

her pictures and mirrors. Ms Ross said: “After working all day with children I find this is the best way to relax and unwind. “The colours and style are influenced by the Caribbean which has been my home for the past 21 years. “I have a studio at home and really love creating the effects using stain glass. And it is such a good feeling when someone buys one knowing it will be on the wall of their home.”

The Red Bay berthing plans

Tad Stoner tad.stoner@ieyenews.com

Continued from front page Proposing a 2,000 x 3,000 square foot ship basin set into Red Bay, the facility would offer two berths for Oasis-class ships and three for standard Freedomclass vessels; a 150-slip marina and helipad; places for 20 mega-yachts; a cargo-loading area triple the size of George Town docks; a hotel and 135 condominiums; customs and immigration offices: and a transport centre for buses and taxis. Flyovers above South Sound Road link the transport centre to Linford Pierson Highway and Grand Harbour, while new roundabouts and bypasses, already gazetted by the National Roads Authority, disburse traffic toward Bodden Town and Rum Point, and toward George Town and beyond to Stingray City and Cayman Turtle Farm. The Red Bay proposal, initially unveiled in September in broad terms, though created almost 40 years ago, is intended as an alternate to government plans for $300 million cruise berthing in George Town’s Hog Sty Bay, to be built by infrastructure giant China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC). While denying any interest in design or construction of the Red Bay to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

facility, the Tuesday-night group said George Town was a poor choice for berthing, environmentally, financially and navigationally. “In a word, it’s exposed -- and will remain exposed,” Mr Conolly told the 100-member audience, pointing out that as long as Hog Sty Bay served the ships, Spotts must remain a foulweather alternative, “and Spotts is not a real alternate -- bypassed last week -- and Spotts will become even more irrelevant as bigger ships cannot discharge there even in good weather”. Dredging Hog Sty Bay to 40 feet for Oasis ships would bring deeper water closer to shore, he said, spurring bigger waves, rebounding between the shoreline and parked vessels, and threatening flooding in Mary Street and downtown. Managing the traffic generated by landing 24,000 daily passengers would require $25 million of roadworks, while 130,000 square feet of retail space in CHEC’s two-storey pier would threaten existing shops. “The Royal Watler Terminal will be closed for three years during construction” of CHEC’s dock, Mr Conolly said, while the fourberth space meant vessels “would still require tendering during high season”. “We are already shoehorning

cargo in there, and there is room for expansion in the future,” he said. The meeting heard that Red Bay’s shallower water meant minimal dredging for the ship basin and associated seawall, and less damage to marine life and reefs than in the George Town project, which could destroy Eden Rock, Cheeseburger Reef, Pageant Beach and the Cali and Balboa areas. Referring to the projected $300 million construction cost, West Bay’s Captain Bryan Ebanks warned: “We get one chance at this, one chance to get it right. We should take that investment and put it where it does the most good for the country.” In Red Bay, he said, “for $300 million you can expand and move beyond into the future, and we will come out on top,” he said.

Tom Cruise’s mission in Dubai

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Tom Cruise may seem larger than life on-screen. But when it came to stunts on the side of the world’s tallest tower, his thoughts were definitely down to earth. Asked Wednesday about his biggest fear during scenes outside the half-mile (828-metre) high Burj Khalifa, Cruise was quick with an answer: “Falling.” The actor is in Dubai for the world premier of “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” at the city’s annual film festival. Cruise said filmmakers had to monitor temperatures on the spire’s sun-baked facade so he wouldn’t get burned. That wasn’t the only challenge. The actor says he didn’t anticipate the cross winds. “I had to figure out, actually, how to fly,” he told reporters on the 124th floor observation area of the Burj Khalifa, which rises dozens of stories higher. “I had to figure out how to use my feet as a rudder ... The first couple of times I was slamming into the building.” Cruise said he spent months training on a four-story structure to practice his moves on the Burj. Most of the shots on the actual building were done in the shade to protect Cruise from high temperatures, as the facade heated up in sunlight. His first thought as he launched outside the building for the first time? “I hope I don’t fall,” he said. Cruise said his wife Katie Holmes is supportive and accustomed to him taking risks on stunts. But that didn’t make it any easier to watch.

Sing Noel – a Christmas concert Christopher Tobutt christopher.tobutt@ieyenews.com

The Cayman National Choir (CNC) and Cayman National Orchestra (CNO) got together for “Sing Noel”, a very special carol service, at the Elmslie United Memorial Church last Tuesday (6). The evening featured a variety of music of different styles, different times, and from different countries. There was even a Christmas Carol from Romania. The Choir, conducted by Sue Horrocks, were in fine voice and their harmonies blended together perfectly. The music started off with something from a little nearer to home. “Just a Little Farther to Go,” is a heartwarming song, based on a Jamaican folk melody, which describes a weary Mary and Joseph travelling to Jesus’ birthplace. The audience were invited to join in at several different points in the performance, especially with resounding traditional carols such as We Three Kings, O Little Town of Bethlehem and, of course, Silent Night. Were you There was beautifully handled by CNC. It is a lovely song where the audience can really enter into the spirit of the awe and wonder at the birth of the Saviour. Not everything went smoothly, however, as Ms Horrocks who also conducted the orchestra introduced the March from the Nutcracker Suite by apologising for a missing trumpet player. The other musicians didn’t seem to be able to play around the missing musician very well, making the sound confused and even a little discordant in places.

The second half of the concert began with the rousing carol, Ding Dong Merrily, in which the audience joined the CNC and CNO Orchestra. Buna Dimineata la Mos Ajun, (Good Morning Christimas Eve) a Romanian Christmas song, followed. It was an ambitious accomplishment for the choir, as it was all sung in Romanian, but they nevertheless seemed to manage very well. In a couple of places during the concert, the house lights inside Elmslie Church dimmed, leaving the light from the little, candle-like lights above each choir-members’ music sheet. The effect looked like an English Victorian scene, straight off a Christmas card. White Christmas the classic Christmas number by Irving Berlin

Obama, Clinton to world: Stop gay discrimination SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Obama administration’s declaration that it plans to use foreign assistance, international diplomacy and political asylum to promote gay rights abroad is a momentous step that could dangerously backfire if not pursued with delicacy and an appreciation of how the challenges faced by gays and lesbians vary by nation, human rights activists said. President Barack Obama, in a memorandum to executive departments, and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, during a speech before the U.N. Human Rights Council, issued a coordinated denunciation Tuesday of anti-

gay discrimination, stating that equal treatment of gay, lesbian and transgender people was an explicit U.S. foreign policy goal. The White House said the twin moves represented the U.S. government’s first comprehensive strategy to combat sexual orientationbased human rights abuses around the world. Gay rights groups cheered the actions, noting that gays and lesbians can be arrested, tortured and even executed in some countries. Wayne Besen, founder of Truth Wins Out, a group that monitors religious organizations with antigay views, listed Russia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Iran and

Zimbabwe among the nations that had recently “declared war on sexual minorities” and said that he hoped they would be chastened by the administration’s blunt talk. “This was one of those times where our nation demonstrated true international leadership and made me incredibly proud to be an American,” Besen said.

Police: Ex-Miss USA was above legal alcohol limit DETROIT (AP) — Former Miss USA Rima Fakih was speeding and weaving through traffic with an uncorked, half-empty bottle of champagne and a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit when she was arrested in the Detroit enclave of Highland Park, according to a police report released Tuesday. The report on her drunkendriving arrest obtained by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information Act request says the 26-year-old from Dearborn was pulled over early Saturday going 60 mph, weaving in heavy traffic and changing

lanes without using a turn signal. A police officer whose name was given only as R. Kalis said the traffic stop happened about 2:15 a.m. The report says she was driving a black 2011 Jaguar. Kalis reported asking for the driver’s license said the “driver immediately identified herself as Miss USA and stated that she was driving a friend’s car.” Kalis said Fakih “appeared disoriented and had very slurred speech while fumbling for her purse.” Kalis asked Fakih if she had been drinking, and she said, “No, not at all.”

In the report, officers said they found an open and half-empty bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne on the floorboard behind the driver’s seat. “I swear, I didn’t know it was open,” Fakih told Kalis, according to the report.

Fugitive ‘Red Shirt’ leader surrenders in Thailand BANGKOK (AP) — A fugitive leader of Thailand’s “Red Shirts” protesters who escaped a police raid by rappelling down a hotel facade in a scene captured by network news teams surrendered Wednesday after 20 months on the run. Arisman Pongruangrong, a pop singer-turned-activist known for hotheaded speeches that sometimes were interpreted as incitements to arson, faces five serious charges that include terrorism. He denied wrongdoing, and said he was turning himself in because he now has confidence in the country’s judicial system. to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

“I only called for democracy, not the destruction of anyone or anything, but now there is no more necessity to stage a rally because we have a government that comes from the people’s voice,” said Arisman. The Red Shirts movement opposed the government of thenPrime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and generally supported former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who had been ousted in a 2006 military coup. Thailand’s new government, led by the sister of the still-fugitive Thaksin, is considered closely aligned with the Red Shirt protesters, though Arisman

denied that his surrender was timed to seek lenient treatment under the new administration. He surrendered to authorities Wednesday in Bangkok, where the Criminal Court denied his request for release on bail, noting he took so long to surrender and he might flee.

The Editor speaks

The Crown loses, again Colin Wilson

Not surprisingly, the crown’s case against the two men who were charged with robbing two visitors at Barefoot Beach, in East End last February, ended with no case to answer against one of the men and the second man was found not guilty. I say not surprisingly not out of any malice or complaints about our legal system, but when the key witness was shot dead and the third co-defendant who pleaded guilty to the crime refused to testify against the others, it leaves the prosecution a difficult case to prove. In this case it was not the police’s fault, nor was it the Judge’s fault. Sadly, it still goes down as another case the crown has lost. Madame Speaker refuses to speak Even though iNews Cayman was not contacted regarding the letter written to Mary Lawrence, the Speaker of the House, on behalf of four other media houses, requesting the speaker to at least reconsider the cell phone and BlackBerry ban, we most certainly would have added our name to it. The leader of the opposition, Hon. Alden McLaughlin, has called publicly on the Speaker to address the situation. “This is a deplorable state of affairs,” he said, “We must address it as a matter of urgency.” Mr. McLaughlin complained last Friday (2) in the Legislative Assembly (LA) that [because of the unexplained ban on all forms of electronic equipment including even iPads and laptops] there were no media in the gallery press box. He said it was an affront to democracy and the LA “should not be stuck in the Middle Ages.” I have to endorse one of the other media house reporter’s comments when she said recently, “It’s not possible for reporters from any modern news organisation to function properly without their phones.” It seems astonishing why Mary Lawrence has taken this

stand and has not responded to the various complaints from other news media houses. Even requests to meet with her on the subject have met with rejection. For the time being we will have to sit in the reception area on more comfortable seats and listen to the live broadcast from Radio Cayman. I hope microphones are not on her list of electronic equipment to be banished! Elmslie Church car park closed by the police Due to the Cayman Islands Marathon on Sunday (4) which commenced outside the bar and restaurant, Breezes by the Bay, the large congregation who attend Sunday Worship at the Island’s most senior and prestigious church, Elmslie Memorial United, were banned by the RCIPS from gaining access to their own car park. In fact their worshippers couldn’t use any of the adjoining car parks because they were already full of cars used by the marathon spectators/participators. As a high proportion of Elmslie’s congregation is either very elderly or mothers with babies it really was an inconvenience and should be addressed at next year’s marathon. The church already has to put up with loud noise from the heavy vehicles coming out of the loading area at the Port facility and the awful ‘racket’ coming next door that penetrates the services from another nearby bar/restaurant. The minister at last Sunday’s service was “not amused.” Finally, last Sunday, traffic trying to get into George Town via Shedden Road couldn’t even go around the Post Office, even after the Marathon was completed. Cones had been placed by the RCIPS just before and vehicles had to do a ‘U’-turn, despite the road around the Post Office being completely clear. I know. I was made to do this even though I was trying to retrieve my mail. But I suppose the walk from the First Caribbean car park did give me some useful exercise! Stop complaining, Wilson!

We continue our serialisation of Anne by Constance Fenimore Woolson

Anne

“Gregory Dexter had a longing to knock him down”

Part 86

On the other hand, Heathcote would have been much surprised to learn that any one longed to take him out and knock him down, simply as an insufferable object. Yet Gregory Dexter had that longing at times so strongly that his hand fairly quivered. Heathcote was slightly above middle height, and well built, but his gait was indolent and careless. Good features unlighted by animation, a brown skin, brown eyes ordinarily rather lethargic, thick brown hair and mustache, and heavy eyebrows standing out prominently from the face in profile view, were the items ordinarily given in a general description. He had a low-toned voice and slow manner, in which, however, there was no affectation. What was the use of doing anything with any particular effort? He had no antipathy for persons of other habits; the world was large. It was noticed, however (or rather it was not noticed), that he generally got away from them as soon as he quietly could. He had lived to be thirty-two years old, and had on the whole enjoyed life so far, although he was neither especially important, handsome,            nor          rich.       The secret of this lay in one fact: women liked him. What was it that they found to like in him? This was the question asked often in irritation by his brother man. And naturally. For the women themselves could not give a reasonable reason. The corresponding side of life is not the same, since men admire with a reason; the woman is plainly beautiful, or brilliant, or fascinating round whom they gather. At Carly’s seven or eight men were handsomer than Heathcote; a number were more brilliant; many were richer. Yet almost all of these had discovered, at one time or another, that the eyes they were talking to were following Heathcote furtively; and they had seen attempts that made them tingle with anger—all the more so because they were so infinitesimally delicate and fine, as became the actions of well-bred women. One or two, who had married, had had explained

having none; but those who were clear-sighted knew better. Dexter was one of these, and this entire absence of selfassertion in Ward Heathcote stung him. For Dexter always asserted himself; he could not help it. He came in at this moment, and noted Heathcote’s position near Anne. Obeying an impulse, he crossed the room immediately, and began a counter- conversation with Miss Vanhorn, the chaperon. “Trying to interest that child,” he thought, as he listened to the grandaunt with the air of deferential attention she liked so well. With eyes that apparently never once glanced in their direction, he kept close watch of the two beyond. “She is no match for him,” he thought, with indignation; “she has had no experience. It ought not to be allowed.” But Dexter always mistook Heathcote; he gave him credit for plans and theories of which Heathcote never dreamed. In fact, he judged him by himself. Heathcote was merely talking to Anne now in the absence of to them elaborately by their wives what it was they (in their free days, of course) had liked other entertainment, having felt some slight curiosity because she had looked so in Heathcote—elaborately, if not clearly. The T                                    "AS  SHE   BENT   OVER   HE  Oabout LD  Vher OLUME."   husbands gathered generally that it was only bright and contented on the mud- bank under a way he had, a manner; the liking was half the bridge. He tried to recall his impression imaginative, after all. Now Heathcote was not of her on New-Year’s Day, and determined to refresh his memory by Blum; but, in the mean in the least imaginative. But the women were. Manly qualities, good hearts, handsome time, outwardly, his manner was as though, faces, and greater wealth held their own in fact silently of course, but none the less deeply, he against him. Marriages took place in his circle, had dwelt upon her image ever since. It was wedding chimes pealed, and brides were happy this impalpable manner, which made Dexter under their veils in spite of him. Yet, as histories indignant. He knew it so well! He said to himself of lives go, there was a decided balance in his that it was a lie. And, generally speaking, it was. favor of feminine regard, and no one could But possibly in this case (as in others) it was not so much the falsity of the manner as its success, deny it. He had now but a small income, and had been which annoyed the other man. He could not hear what was said; and the obliged to come down to a very simple manner of life. Those who disliked him said that of words, in truth, were not many or brilliant. But course he would marry money. As yet, however, he knew the sort of quiet glance with which they he had shown no signs of fulfilling his destiny were being accompanied. Yet Dexter, quick in this respect. He seldom took the trouble to and suspicious as he was, would never have express his opinions, and therefore passed as discovered that glance unaided.

Just about memories and me Part 3

Joan Wilson joan.wilson@ieyenews.com

On a Saturday morning and holidays we were all out on the road, ready for a game of marbles, hopscotch, Andy over, goole, sheep sheep, come home, and that’s just to mention a few of the games. Of course, we swam in the mornings and evenings as well. It was in the bays of George Town where we all learnt to swim and we took turns to visit them all. You might say, that we had a bay for each day of the week with some left over. We swam in Whitehall Bay, Grandpa’s Bay, Aunt Netties’ Bay, Uncle Stead’s Bay, Uncle Knowle’s Bay, Old House Bay, Red Spot Bay, Eddy Parson’s Bay, Hog Sty Bay and Paige’s Bay. All these bays were within swimming distance of each other and about one mile in total length. I personally swam a mile at least once a week and for most of the time Sarah was with me. Like I said, we were inseparable and always looking for a challenge. After swimming in the evenings we’d all go for walks until just before dark, and then we’d all go home for supper. Supper! Ours nearly always consisted of bread and butter (or margarine), pear, and banana and sometimes cheese, with a cup of cocoa to drink. We only needed that as we had already had a very good lunch although we called it dinner back then. Dinners consisted of beans, stewed fish, corn beef, salt beef, turtle, chicken with rice, breadfruit, yam, cassava, sweet potato, and plantain. Our dinners were very tasty, I can tell you. At this point in my life my elder sisters, except Helen, were all grown up and going out to social functions like dances in the Town Hall , which were by invitation only. My sisters would get dressed up for these dances and I envied them, yearning for

the day when I’d be old enough to go with them. I would lean on the dresser as they put their lipstick, powder and rouge on their face taking lessons and I made sure I never missed one. Sometimes my mother and father would allow Helen and me to go to the Town Hall to watch for a little while. But at 10pm father would appear at the door, give us a shout and it was time to go home! Well, we certainly wouldn’t disobey the Chief Inspector of the Cayman Islands Police Force. He was dressed in his uniform, carried a cane and we knew what that could do! He was 6ft. 6in. tall and had a voice like thunder, and everyone respected him. At these dances I observed everyone dancing the beautiful waltzes, quicksteps, foxtrots, and then later the mamba’s and calypsos. They also performed the Grand March and this involved all the dancers. Everything I needed to learn about dancing was right there in the Town hall. My sisters could all dance well and used to win any contests that were held. You’re probably wondering where all my brothers were all this time? Well, Joe had left the island and gone to Panama, C.A. to work. My other brother Steve shipped out to sea with National Bulk Carriers where he was away for two years. He never danced, only watched. However, Joe certainly could. Upon returning from Panama he showed us how to dance the South American way that I loved and soon was dancing it myself. I loved dancing and everyone told me I had a good sense of rhythm. Sundays, the day of rest, really were that in those days. We would always be in church for two services with our parents. We were members of the Presbyterian Church and sang on the choir. Elder sister, Eulene was on the senior choir whilst I sang with the junior one. In the church each family had their own pew that was filled with the members

of that family. On Friday nights we attended Christian Endeavour joining other young people in our community. Our minister’s name was Rev. George Hicks, a very powerful speaker and preacher. He was very well educated and came from Scotland. We were all Scottish Presbyterians in those days. Mr. Hicks, as we all called him, used to visit all the families during the week and he walked everywhere, dressed in his black robe and white collar. I never did see him sweat either. As well as dances and church we would have picnics on the beach. And did we ever have good food at these picnics. Corn beef, potato salad, macaroni, stew and baked beans to mention a few. We nearly always had cakes - heavy and light ones. I mean, they were good! Have you heard how well Caymanians can cook? It’s true. We are the best cooks in the world! In those days at the beach picnics, it was a glorious sight to see the green turtles come right up on the beach to lay their eggs. If you were a good swimmer, like me, you could catch them and ride them, too. After we’d eaten we would sit around, sing and play games. Games such as “London Bridge is Falling Down,” “Spin the Bottle,” “Go Spread Your Carpet on the Sea,” “Spin the Bottle,” and “Skipping With Bay Vine.” My goodness, we had us a lovely time. Once the picnic was over we’d all get into Pa’s truck and his driver, Theodore Menzies, would drive us to West Bay whilst we sang all the way. The roads, then, were so narrow that the truck would slip off into the swamp many a time. I had the wind knocked out of me when that happened.

Visitors to the Cayman Island’s National Museum’s 20th Anniversary celebrations were in for a spectacular and tasty cultural feast. Carmen Conolly from East End was there, showing the beautiful things that an expert can make from the dried leaves of silver thatch palm. She had a dress all made of thatch, that was worn earlier this year by East End’s Miss Festival Queen. Zelmalee Ebanks, all the way from North Side, had a delicious Christmas fruitcake using locally grown star fruit, while a group from the East End United Church had cooked tasty stewed conch and lobster. The Pink Ladies were selling Christmas crafts they had made themselves for local charities, and Josie Solomon from Bodden Town had a table covered with the bright colours belonging to her traditionally made quilts.

One of the event’s highlight’s was Julia Hydes, (known as “Aunt Julia”), who recently celebrated her 102nd birthday. She played her drum, while singing some favourite old-time Caymanian songs such as Munzie Boat in the Sound. That music was just right for putting visitors in the mood for one of the museums new exhibits, “The Kitchen Dance” which gives a history of the uniquely Caymanian style of music, termed “kitchen” because it was traditionally played around the separate kitchen or caboose of a home. The other new exhibit pays tribute to one of Cayman’s great entrepreneurs, Linton Tibbetts, owner of Cox Lumber, who died earlier this year. George Town Primary School children gave a demonstration of quadrille dancing in beautiful traditional dress. Dr. Peggy Leshikar-Denton, who took over directorship of the museum in October, said: “I want the museum

to come into focus in the community and become an integral part of the community, and to blossom. Many people don’t realise we have a collection of 8,000 objects, so we want to be able to not only store and exhibit these artifacts but to care for them and conserve them. Since the original opening, the museum has achieved a great deal and we are ready to build on that foundation to make a brighter future.” “In the past we have been happy to work with volunteers and we would welcome volunteers in the future. We really want people to become members and be a part of it.”

Hammocks

Georgina Wilcox georgina.wilcox@ieyenews.com

Thousand of years ago, the people of Caribbean South America had a need for a versatile but comfortable device to sleep in. Using the supple bark of the Hamack tree, the Latin villagers wove a mesh like net. The net could be hung out of the way, not taking up very much space in the small thatched hut, and was extremely comfortable to sleep and relax in. The woven bed quickly became popular and was soon traded throughout Central and South America. Today, this ancient Caribbean creation is known as the hammock. The hammock is still a standard furnishing in most homes in many

16

areas of Latin America and even here in Cayman – especially the traditional Caymanian homes. Its popularity has spread far beyond these Latin and Caribbean countries. Hammocks can be seen in several styles and varieties and have numerous uses around the globe. Most modern hammocks are machine made from a synthetic blend of cotton and nylon. Hand woven hammocks can still be found in many areas of Latin America, though they are now made of cotton rather than plant bark. The traditional Cayman hammock is made of a single cotton sheet that wraps itself around your body as opposed to the modern flat type that looks and feels more like a bed.

The most common use of a hammock is for resting, sleeping, or relaxation. Many Cayman and American homes have backyard hammocks for reading or just enjoying the outdoors. These swing-like seats can be hung between two trees or may be attached to a metal frame. Hammocks were once used in the cramped sleeping quarters of US Navy ships. They have also been used inside space ships. Others are made for carrying in your knapsack on your back. to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

UCCI’s Service Day showcases community work On Tuesday, November 29th, the students, faculty and staff of UCCI were given the opportunity to learn firsthand about the tremendous work being undertaken by numerous organisations working in our community. This year’s “UCCI Annual Service Day” hosted 11 nonprofit and community service organisations: Big Brothers Big Sisters, Cayman AIDS Foundation, CI Cadet Corps, CI Crisis Centre, CI Cancer Society, CI Humane Society, CI Red Cross, Circle K, Estella Scott-Roberts Foundation, NCVO and the Optimist Club. “UCCI is committed to offering its students a variety of opportunities for growth and development, both inside and outside the classroom,” explained Mr. Mitch Ebanks, Student Services Coordinator. “It is our belief that the benefits and lessons that one learns through volunteerism are so unique that they cannot be replicated through other experiences,” he adds. The participating organisations were able to showcase their work, as well as educate, raise awareness and recruit students all the while enjoying the breeze and relaxed atmosphere of the college’s outdoor square known as the Quad or the Courtyard. Nearly 100 students, faculty and staff visited the booths, received information, and interacted with the 25+ volunteers representing the organisation. “We were incredibly pleased to be asked to participate in this event as dissemination of information and educating the student body about the various programmes we run has always been one of our core mandates,” explained CI Red Cross Director, Jondo Obi. “As a charitable organisation, we are always in need of expanding our pool of volunteers and enhancing their knowledge and skills. We thoroughly believe that the youth of today are an excellent asset to our society and are the future leaders. We were very pleased by the turnout and the number of students who showed interest in getting more involved in our community,” she adds.

If what we saw today is any indication, these incentives help us grab attention, but it’s the work of these organizations that will get the students motivated and committed for the long run,” he explains.

Bush plans to lure reinsurers Cayman Premier McKeeva Bush has unveiled immigration incentives and a targeted marketing campaign expressly designed to encourage reinsurers to domicile in that Caribbean jurisdiction rather than in Bermuda. During the Cayman Captive Forum last week, Mr. Bush used the largest captive insurance conference in the world — with 1,200 delegates attending — as the venue for a new strategy aimed squarely at the reinsurance industry in Bermuda. Mr. Bush said that while growth in the Caribbean island chain’s captive insurance arena has been strong, reinsurance activity has been limited. “Anecdotal evidence from the industry suggests that as a jurisdiction Cayman has several advantages that we can capitalise on to attract greater interest from reinsurance companies,” Mr. Bush said. In addition to new insurance legislation — which has given the islands a framework to increase reinsurance activity in the region — Cayman also needed to offer a package of immigration incentives to facilitate the ease of entry by the specialised staff needed in this industry and a targeted marketing campaign that will educate

18

and attract potential reinsurance business on the benefits of Cayman, Mr. Bush said. Senior executives who would be granted 10-year work permits are the positions of vice president or higher, Mr. Bush said. In addition, Mr. Bush said direct one-on-one marketing to reinsurance chief executive officers and senior executives, as well as presentations to law firms in New York and other financial centres, will be needed to drive reinsurance business to Cayman. Mr. Bush said Cayman’s advantages when attracting reinsurers include no income, payroll, property or corporate taxes. “As long as I am premier, there will be no such taxes,” Mr. Bush said. Compared to Bermuda, one of the main domiciles for reinsurers, Mr. Bush said Cayman offers an attractive jurisdiction to work and reside and provides expatriate workers with the opportunity to own property. Labour costs in the reinsurance industry are also lower than in Bermuda. Bermuda historically enjoyed the advantage of a tax treaty with the US, which came into effect in 1986 and governs the taxation of insurance premiums.

“Bermuda’s proximity to financial centres such as New York and London with daily direct flights to each also gives Bermuda a bit of a geographic edge. However the Cayman Islands government’s vision to implement ways to cut through bureaucratic red tape to facilitate business needs plus the quality of life should greatly assist in attracting commercial reinsurers,” Mr. Price said. Another significant difference between the two jurisdictions is that Bermuda is seeking third party equivalence with Solvency II, a fundamental review of the capital adequacy regime for the insurance industry developed in the European Union. Solvency II is expected to increase demand for reinsurance as one of the tools for insurance companies to lower their additional capital requirements as a result of the new rules. However, reinsurers themselves face higher capital requirements and capital costs under Solvency II. Cayman has not adopted the new rules and has not committed to do so in the future, which could be attractive to certain reinsurers looking for a domicile with a lower capital threshold. to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

Recognising & Managing Eating Disorders Dr. Bella Beraha info@ieyenews.com

Our culture’s obsession with weight conveys an unavoidable message to adolescents. According to a 2007 survey, 35% of adolescent girls believed that they were overweight and 60% were actively attempting to lose weight. Alarmingly, in the days before questioning, 8 percent of these girls had tried vomiting or had taken laxatives to try to lose weight. Eating disorders are illnesses that cause serious disturbances to your normal diet, whether it is eating extremely small amounts of food or severely overeating. Being overly concerned with body weight or shape may also characterize an eating disorder. These disorders frequently develop during the teens or early adulthood but can also develop during childhood or later in life. An eating disorder is a real, treatable medical illness that frequently coexists with other illnesses such as depression, substance abuse, or anxiety disorders. Symptoms can become life-threatening if the disorder goes untreated ANOREXIA NERVOSA Characteristics: • Extreme thinness (emaciation) • A relentless pursuit of weight-loss • Unwillingness to maintain a normal or healthy weight • Intense fear of gaining weight • Distorted body image • Lack of menstruation among girls and women • Extremely restricted eating Many people with anorexia see themselves as overweight, even when they are clearly underweight. Eating, food, and weight control become obsessions. People with anorexia nervosa typically weigh themselves repeatedly, portion food carefully, and eat very small quantities of only certain foods. Some people with anorexia nervosa may also engage in binge-eating followed by extreme dieting,

excessive exercise, self-induced vomiting, and/or misuse of laxatives, diuretics, or enemas. Some who have anorexia nervosa recover with treatment after only one episode. Others get well but have relapses. Still others have a more chronic, or long-lasting, form of anorexia nervosa, in which their health declines as they battle the illness. Long term complications: • Thinning of the bones • Brittle hair and nails • Dry and yellowish skin • Growth of fine hair all over the body • Mild anaemia • Muscle wasting and weakness • Severe constipation • Low blood pressure • Slowed breathing and pulse • Damage to the structure and function of the heart • Brain damage • Multi-organ failure • Drop in internal body temperature, causing a person to feel cold all the time • Lethargy, sluggishness, or feeling tired all the time • Infertility. BULIMIA NERVOSA Characteristics: • Recurrent and frequent episodes of eating unusually large amounts of food and feeling a lack of control over these episodes, followed by behaviour that compensates for the overeating such as forced vomiting, excessive use of laxatives or diuretics, fasting, excessive exercise, or a combination of these behaviours.

to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

Unlike anorexia nervosa, people with bulimia nervosa usually maintain what is considered a healthy or normal weight, while some are slightly overweight. But like people with anorexia nervosa, they often fear gaining weight, want desperately to lose weight, and are intensely unhappy with their body size and shape. Usually, bulimic behaviour is done secretly because it is often accompanied by feelings of disgust or shame. The bingeeating and purging cycle happens anywhere from several times a week to many times a day. Other symptoms include: • Chronically inflamed and sore throat • Swollen salivary glands in the neck and jaw area • Worn tooth enamel, increasingly sensitive and decaying teeth as a result of exposure to stomach acid • Acid reflux disorder and other gastrointestinal problems • Intestinal distress and irritation from laxative abuse • Severe dehydration from purging of fluids • Electrolyte imbalance (too low or too high levels of sodium, calcium, potassium and other minerals) which can lead to heart attack EATING DISORDER NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED This category includes people with clearly abnormal eating patterns and weight management habits who do not meet the criteria for anorexia or bulimia. The most common disorders are binge eating, night

eating syndrome, sleep related eating disorders, and purging disorder. Binge-eating is eating an amount of food in a period of time that is definitely larger than most people would eat in a similar period of time under similar circumstances. These episodes occur at least twice a week for at least six months. Binge eating is associated with a lack of control and with distress over the eating. With a binge-eating disorder a person loses control over his or her eating. Unlike bulimia, periods of binge-eating are not followed by purging, excessive exercise, or fasting and because of this, people with binge-eating disorders are often over-weight or obese. People with this disorder who are obese are at higher risk for developing cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. They also experience guilt, shame, and distress about their binge-eating, which can lead to a repetition of the episodes. TREATMENT Adequate nutrition, reducing excessive exercise, and stopping purging behaviours are the foundations of treatment. Treatment plans are often tailored to individual needs and may include one or more of the following: • Individual, group, and/or family psychotherapy • Medical care and monitoring • Nutritional counselling • Medications • Some patients may also need to be hospitalized to treat problems caused by malnutrition or to ensure they eat enough if they are very underweight. It is a common misconception that eating disorders only affect females. Males can be just as easily affected. If you suspect that you may have an eating disorder it is very important to seek treatment as soon as possible to minimize both the short and long-term damage to your body. See your doctor as soon as possible.

Jamaica, World Stars and Cayman book semi final positions Theo Cuffy info@ieyenews.com

T/20 is short, exciting and aggressive. The Challenge Trophy, Cayman Islands off season tournament produces everything that a cricketer enthusiast wants and some more. Two very exciting matches were completed on Sunday. Jamaica defeated Barbados in a low scoring match while World Stars and British & Irish Lions produced a nail biting finish for one run World Stars victory. In a match reduced to 18 overs Barbados started well with Kirkpatrick Clarke 43 and 15 years old Gregory Davis 18 providing a 57 runs partnership. Only Ryan Bovell 24 was able to contribute as Barbados was reduced to 107 for 9 wickets. Ugal Sicard and Ladel Farquharson were the main Jamaican bowlers picking up 7 wickets. Jamaica had no problems in getting the Barbados score with main batsmen Garth Bryan 36, Tony Higgins 34n.o and Ugal Sicard 20. Jamaica won by 7 wickets. World Stars lived up to their name and produced a discipline batting performance. Having lost two early

Ian Rotsey

wickets, Sam Suberan 63 (4 fours and 4 sixes) and Al Shields 33 repaired the damage and lead them to 150 for 4 wickets. The British & Irish Lions did not give up. They began well with Ian Rotsey and Mark Randall laying the foundation. Chris Smith joined Rotsey at the fall of Randall’s wicket and the pair took the B & I Lions to striking distance before World Stars got back into the match. Three quick wickets and all spectators are at the edge of their seats. Even the dominoes group stopped for the action. With the

Lions requiring 11 runs in the final over and 3 runs off the last ball for victory, World Stars restricted B & I Lions to 9 runs and maintained their unbeaten run to date. World Stars won by 1 run. The excitement continues on Saturday with defending champions Guyana in with a chance for the last semifinal place against the unpredictable ANZACS. Who will join the big three on Sunday?

Scholars International have made their intentions clear this season, they want silverware. After acquiring some strong off season acquisitions the objective is to, WIN, win championships and win cups. Sunday at the T.E. McField Sports Complex in George Town they faced another big test as they squared off against current league Champions and current league leaders Elite SC. Scholars surrendered the top position in the Cayman Premier League in Week 8 after playing out a goalless draw against Cayman Athletic. Elite took back pole position and Scholars knew that a win was the only result that would propel them back into top spot Sunday. It was a top of the table clash that never really sparked into life. Both teams were cautious, neither team wanted to make any mistakes. Elite SC knowing that a draw would keep them top, therefore the onus was on Scholars to go out and win the game. It was a game of very few chances until the 85th minute when Scholars substitute

Dominic Pearson had a golden opportunity to give his team all three points and put them top of the Cayman Premier League, after a brilliant through ball from Nahun Rodriguez that created a scramble in the box the ball fell to Pearson who was not more than four yards from goal, with the goal unattended he managed to strike the post. Scholars International could have and should have been sitting top of the league. Instead of sitting top Scholars fell to third in the league after high flying Bodden Town FC picked up their fifth consecutive win over George Town SC to go second in the league ahead of Scholars. Bodden Town FC have the best goal difference in the league, as the league’s top scorers, BT have hit 33 goals in 10 games and sit second in the league with the same points total as Scholars but with a superior goal difference, BT are now just one point behind Elite SC who remain in top spot. Justin Pierre got George Town off to a good start after scoring his fifth for the season, Bodden Town came good in the second half as Yefry Calderon again came to the rescue, his goals have been vital for Bodden

Town so far this season as they look to content for all three trophies this campaign. Calderon equalized in the 62nd minute and snatched the game winner in the 90th. George Town SC continues to slide and is now ten points of leaders Elite SC after picking up just 6 points out of 15 in the last 5 games.

At the other end of the Cayman Premier League, Tigers FC and Cayman Athletic both picked up big wins. Tigers beat bottom side Future SC 2:1, Miguel Simms and Manilo Conolly getting the goals for Tigers. Future SC is now 5 points adrift at the bottom of the league and remains winless this season.

Shorter NBA schedule has 42 back-to-back-to-backs NEW YORK (AP) — The Los Angeles Lakers will play games on the first three nights of the NBA season, the first of 42 back-to-back-to-back sets teams will face during this lockoutshortened season. The NBA announced the compacted, 66-game schedule on Tuesday night, one that will require every team to play on three consecutive nights at least once. And it will force every team to navigate demanding stretches that are never seen during a full season, such as the nine games in 12 nights the Atlanta Hawks face starting with their Dec. 27 opener. The league’s 66th season begins with five games on Christmas, including the Lakers hosting the Chicago Bulls. Los Angeles then visits Sacramento the next night before returning home to host Utah on Dec. 27. Teams will play 48 conference games and 18 against the opposing conference, meaning they play only three nonconference opponents home and away. The league did preserve its most storied rivalry, with the Lakers traveling to Boston for a Feb. 9 matchup before the Celtics open a stretch of eight road games in 13 nights in March with games on back-to-back nights at Staples Center. Dallas and Miami also will play twice, following their Christmas NBA finals rematch with a March 12 game in Miami. The Heat and

Lakers also play two games. The 50-game 1999 season featured 64 sets of back-to-backto-backs and was plagued by sloppy basketball being played on fatigued legs. The NBA faces a similar predicament now after failing to reach a new labor deal in time to save the Nov. 1 start to the season. Instead, a tentative agreement was reached on Nov. 26. Lawyers for the owners and players are still finalizing the rest of the deal, with both sides expected to vote on it Thursday before training camps and free agency open on Friday. Aging teams such as the Celtics, Lakers and NBA champion Mavericks will have to pace themselves, while younger teams such as Oklahoma City figure to be better prepared for the grind. “You’re not going to have those breaks of three or four days that you sometimes got in the old 82-game schedule, when it was the normal regular schedule,” former NBA coach and current analyst Mike Fratello said during the schedule announcement on NBA TV. “Now with everything being compacted, games come that much more quickly, you’ve got to gear up back up again, you move onto the next one immediately.” The Denver Nuggets, hit hard by free agency with three of their players in China, face another difficult obstacle in the schedule. They play five games in six nights

spanning the new year, including a home-and-home set with the Lakers on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. The Nuggets do not host Carmelo

Anthony, whom they traded to the Knicks last February. Deron Williams, sent from Utah to New Jersey days later, is scheduled to return to Salt Lake City on Jan. 14.

US Grand Prix included in F1 calendar for 2012 PARIS (AP) — The U.S. Grand Prix has been included on the 2012 Formula One calendar, ending fears the race in Austin, Texas, would be cut for financial reasons. The sport’s governing body said Wednesday on its website that the 2012 “calendar was confirmed as previously published.” The unchanged F1 calendar was approved at a World Motor Sport Council meeting in New Delhi, to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

India. The Nov. 18 event in Austin will mark F1’s return to the United States for the first time since 2007. Last week, F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone gave U.S. GP organizers an extra week to save the Texas race by proving they had the necessary finances in place. Backers of the race include billionaire businessman Red McCombs, a founding partner

of event organizer Circuit of The Americas. “Mr. Ecclestone received his check today,” McCombs said in a statement Wednesday. “We want to thank the fans supporting us, the local officials and businesses that have encouraged us, the State of Texas, Circuit of The Americas’ staff and Bernie himself.” Circuit of the Americas officials had pledged to pay F1’s sanctioning

fee, but a dispute over signing a final contract and the long-term financing had not yet been resolved, prompting Ecclestone to extend the deadline. The initial dispute was caused by F1’s decision to scrap a previous contract it had with Tavo Hellmund, a former driver with family ties to Ecclestone who was originally granted the right to stage the U.S. Grand Prix.

Fisherman Joseph Smith caught a gigantic 170 pound yellowfin tuna, just off Grand Cayman’s North West Point. “This is the biggest tuna I’ve ever caught.” Mr Smith said. That giant tuna is just 19 pounds short of the Cayman Islands record for tuna, and is the same weight as a middle-weight boxer, an average washing machine, seventeen human heads or Barack Obama. The fish was weighed at the Morgan’s Harbour dock. Despite the huge size of the fish, the boat that Mr. Smith and fellow crewmember Denny Rivers caught the fish in, the Abba, was very smalljust over 13 feet. “I fought him for about 45 minutes, - it was hard work,” Mr Smith said. “We went out fishing yesterday afternoon, and we decided to go out for the moon rising. First we caught

It took several men to help weigh the fish at the weighing apparatus at Morgan’s Harbour

a wahoo, which weighed about 28 pounds and after four we caught the big tuna. “When we go out fishing we use live bonita (small tuna) or flying fish. We tried the live bonita around for a while but there was nothing. As the tide came on, we caught a wahoo and we couldn’t get any more bonita, so we turned to the flying fish because it’s the next best bait.

We caught the tuna with the flying fish - you can’t even see the hook it swallowed,” Mr. Smith continued. The tuna, which sells for around seven dollars a pound, was sold to Calypso Grill for over 1000 dollars, according to fellow West Bay fisherman, Captain Bruce Bush.
