Jamaica May Lose Pot Capital Status To US
News Americas, New York: amaica may be blamed for marijuana or pot (Ganja) trafficking to America, but drug enforcement agents have their hands full trying to stamp out growth of the drug in the United States. While the U.S. State Department report on narcotics for this year shows there are an estimated 15,000 hectares of marijuana growing in Jamaica and some 67 metric tons of mar-
ijuana was seized in 2012 alone, the American domestic marijuana growers have harvested a minimum of 2,500 metric tons of saleable marijuana in recent years, worth over $25 billion on the retail market. Continued on page 4

The power is in the hands of the voters!
s the September 10 Democratic Primary draws closer, the campaigns are getting more aggressive in New York City with more than 200 candidates seeking to represent the party in the general election in November. Thousands of potential voters in our communities have already declared that it's the Democrats all the way. The Democratic party accounts for 5,507,928 or 59.1% of the State registered voters compared to the Republican's 3,130,122 or 33.6% and the Independence, 345,957 or 3.7%. We want to believe that all major political parties promote positive ideals and have good intentions, but each party disagrees on the method and application of laws to achieve these positive results. However, a party will always need personalities and people to carry out the mission from time to time. The overall mission may not change significantly but the outlook and vision of the candidates or people is constantly changing. Each candidate has a style and
method of dealing with issues. This is based on other premises that we don't believe the voting process should not always be based on party tradition or diehards. Voters should always find out where they fit in on the political spectrum and which candidates to support. According to a June 2012 study, commissioned by the New York City Campaign Finance Board, voters engagement is a significant and persistent challenge in New York City. In the November 2010 Federal midterm and New York State elections, the turnout in the city was significantly lower with 28% than in the rest of the State (53%) and nationally (46%). In recent years, the voter turnout in the city has been historically low. In the 2009 New York City general election for mayor, 18.4% or one in five New Yorkers cast a ballot. The ethnic and racial minorities including African Americans have lower voter
turnout rates than the Caucasian population. The Pew Research Report in 2006 found that in the United States., 37% of whites were regular voters compared to only 31% of Blacks and 24% of Hispanics. We are very concerned about the extremely low turnout in New York City. It suggests that the election results may be biased toward the interests of a relative few. This inequity among citizen participation has important implications for the electorate. As voters we can influence the decisions on policies and other resources that generally affect our lives. The more a community is involved in local elections, the greater the chance that the candidates will listen to the issues. We need candidates that will address and improve our education system, unemployment, immigration, business opportunities and the inequitable distribution of these services within communities.

How to Be a Better Decision Maker
aking decisions is a central part of leadership. Even when a leader uses a liaise-faire leadership style, the leader remains responsible for making decisions that followers should pursue. Followers often look to leaders to make decisions, particularly if they have difficulty with envisioning the specific tasks that are required to achieve a goal. Because of the importance of decision making to leadership, you should understand how to approach decision-making. To make better decisions, you should understand that decision-making is a process involving a sequential series of steps that are often considered part of the critical thinking process. These steps are (a) identify the problem, (b) analyze the possible solutions to the problem, (c) evaluate which of the possible solutions will be most effective, and (d) select and implement the solution. These steps give you a structural framework to improve the quality of your decisions. The first three steps focus on collecting information that is useful. The way leaders as decision makers collect this information often depends on their leadership style and the situation. For example, the autocratic leader may be comfortable with personally collecting the information, while a participative leader may be comfortable relying on the information provided by others. Identifying a problem requires that you understand that a problem exists and can also recognize the root cause. While it is often easy to recognize the symptoms of a problem, the actual cause of the problem may not be immediately apparent. As a result, a good leader carefully evaluates the nature of the problem before considering the possible solutions. All problems have more than one possible solution. Effective decision making requires identifying the range of possible solutions that address the root cause of the problem. At the same time, the leader must remain aware that decisions have a direct

As a result, an effective decision maker has a contingency plan in the event that the decision fails to achieve the desired result. This plan often consists of a solution to the problem that was rejected during the evaluation phase of the decision-making process. _________________________________________
effect on followers when evaluating possible alternatives. After evaluating the alternatives, the leader should determine the solution that is most likely to solve the problem without causing new and unanticipated ones. A leader making decisions should also recognize that all decisions will not produce the desired result. Some solutions appear effective in theory but fail in practice.

Addressing the first meeting of the East Gun Hill & Boston Post Road Merchant Association (l-r) Marques Payne, membership director, Bronx Chamber of Commerce; Lenny Caro, president and CEO, Bronx Chamber of Commerce and Bronx 12th District Council member Andy King on Tuesday (August 19) at City World Toyota in the Bronx. Over a dozen shop owners along the East Gun Hill Road and Boston Road business corridor attended the meeting which was organized by Council member King and Caro. “These businesses that signed up are the nucleus of this organization. I’m looking forward to a great partnership with our business owners,” said King. Addressing the group, Caro said, “The most important thing is that we want to start. I had an opportunity to meet some of the merchants and (auto) dealerships. A lot of the guys said that it would be tough for them to get here tonight; but if we don’t start some thing it not going to happened.”
13 Arrested on Drugs Charges
BROOKLYN: ings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes on August 23 announced the arrest of 13 drug dealers who have allegedly been operating in and around Fiorentino Plaza, a NYCHA housing development located in the 75th Precinct, and the arrest of two other individuals found in possession of narcotics in the targeted locations. The takedown marks the conclusion of a joint long-term investigation conducted by the NYPD’s Brooklyn North Narcotics Major Case Unit and the Kings County District Attorney’s Major Narcotics Investigations Bureau that was initiated in direct response to community requests for assistance. Over the course of the nine-month investigation, defendants Timothy Breaker, David Boyd, Joseph Cruz, Leonardo
Edwards, Maria Figueroa, Gary Floyd, Armel Goffe, Iesha Hightower, Harvey McClurin, Gwendolyn Morgan, Michael Smith, Calvin Totten, and Cory Vann allegedly repeatedly sold crack/cocaine, heroin and marijuana to undercover officers. Over 90 purchases were made by the undercovers, all in the immediate vicinity of Fiorentino Plaza and therefore, in close proximity to three public schools, P.S. 158, I.S. 292, and the United Foundation charter school. Additionally, several of the purchases were made in the subway station located at the corner of Pitkin and Van Sicklen Avenues. Execution of five search warrants in targeted locations, including specific apartments and motor vehicles where purchases had been made, resulted in the seizure of substantial quantities of
crack/cocaine packaged for purchase, heroin, marijuana, and a shotgun. The dealers have been charged with Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance In or Near School Grounds, a Class B felony, and related drug offenses. In the context of the search warrant executions, defendants Malcolm Bell and Tiffany Harper were arrested on possession charges. The case was investigated by Detective William Warren of the Brooklyn North Narcotics Major Case Unit, under the supervision of Lieutenant William Buchanan and Sergeant William Logan. Assistant District Attorneys Tara Lenich, Frank Santarpia and Alissa Rodriguez are prosecuting the case for the Major Narcotics Investigations Bureau.
Councilman Richards Applauds Federal Stop and Frisk Ruling
Queens: "I applaud the U.S. District Court Judge’s decision on Stop and Frisk," Councilman Richards said. "Harassing New Yorkers who are doing nothing wrong is a waste of resources and can actually be a danger to public safety. The ongoing abuse of New York City’s Stop and Frisk policy has instilled a deep distrust between the NYPD and thousands of innocent, tax-paying citizens who are simply trying to live their lives in peace. In order to regain the trust of those who have been disillusioned by what we now recognize as constitutional violations, we must start with common sense reforms that protect the rights and safety of all New Yorkers.

US Marijuan Production on The Increase
Continued from page 1 Jon Gettman, who recently did a report on “Marijuana Production in the United States,” concludes that marijuana harvested and sold untaxed in the United States, makes it the country’s number one cash crop, worth more than the corn and wheat crops combined. Five states–California, Tennessee, Kentucky, Hawaii and Washington – had marijuana crops worth over $1 billion despite the DEA’s best efforts to stamp down on the drug. That number could grow by $9 billion on medical-marijuana consumption alone by 2016. With the fight for medical marijuana heating up and more and more states considering legalization of the drug, Jamaica may soon lose its place as the pot capital of the world. Medical marijuana is legal in almost 20 states, and recreational use of the drug was recently legalized in two states. Still, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, (FINRA), has issued a new Investor Alert called Marijuana Stock Scams to warn investors about potential related scams. FINRA says the con artists behind marijuana stock scams may try to entice investors with optimistic and potentially false and misleading information that in turn creates unwarranted demand for shares of small, thinly traded companies that often have little or no history of financial success. One company highlighted in Marijuana Stock Scams was touted on the internet as legitimate with investment profiles and sponsored links including one promotional piece claiming the stock “could double its price SOON.” Despite these claims, the company’s balance sheet showed only losses and had only begun to formulate a business plan. The scams also include smart tips to help investors spot and avoid potential scams. The scammers behind these “pump and dump” scams can then sell off their shares, leaving investors with worthless stock, warned FINRA.
Trump in $40M Consumers Defraud Claims
A.G. Schneiderman Sues Donald Trump, Trump University & Michael Sexton For Defrauding Consumers Out Of $40 Million With Sham “University” NEW YORK. NY: ew York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman on Friday announced that he has filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump, The Trump Entrepreneur Institute--formerly named Trump University LLC (“Trump University”), and Michael Sexton, former President of Trump University for engaging in persistent fraudulent, illegal and deceptive conduct in connection with the operation of Trump University. Between 2005 through 2011, Trump University operated as an unlicensed educational institute that promised to teach Donald Trump’s real estate investing techniques to consumers nationwide but instead misled consumers into paying for a series of expensive courses that did not deliver on their promises. "More than 5,000 people across the country who paid Donald Trump $40 million to teach them his hard sell tactics got a hard lesson in bait-and-switch," said Attorney General Schneiderman. "Mr. Trump used his celebrity status and personally appeared in commercials making false promises to convince people to spend tens of thousands of dollars they couldn't afford for lessons they never got." The petition filed in New York Supreme Court in Manhattan by Attorney General Schneiderman details the advertisements run by Trump University in major newspapers across the country and the direct mail solicitations sent to entice consumers to attend a free workshop. These ads prominently dis-
Donald Trump Chairman and president The Trump Organization
played Donald Trump’s photograph and signature, or were styled as letters written by Trump himself. The advertisements were replete with false claims, including claims that consumers would learn “from Donald Trump’s handpicked instructor a systematic method for investing in real estate that anyone can use.” Other ads promised “my handpicked instructors will share my techniques” or “learn from my hand-picked expert” and “just copy exactly what I’ve done and get rich.” An investigation by Attorney General Schneiderman revealed that Donald Trump did not handpick even a single instructor at these seminars and had little or no role in developing any of the Trump University curricula, or seminar content. The investigation also revealed that officials used the name “Trump University” even though they lacked the charter necessary under New York law to
Doctor to pay $388,000 for False Claims
By Kimmy Blair Street Hype Reporter r Richard S. Obedian, a Long Island, orthopedic surgeon, will pay the government $388,000 to settle allegations that he violated the False Claims Act by submitting false claims to Medicare for minimally invasive spine procedures, the Justice Department announced Wednesday (August 21). The Federal government found that in 2005, Obedian knowingly circumvented lower payment rates for kyphoplasty procedures by using incorrect billing codes assigned to more complicated surgeries, thereby inflating his Medicare reimbursements. Kyphoplasty is a minimal invasive procedure used to treat compression fractures of the spine that often are due to osteoporosis. Medicare billing rules prior to 2006, required the use of a specific billing code to denote the performance of this type of procedure. These rules precluded the use of other codes assigned to more invasive and complicated expensive surgeries. Stuart F. Delery, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division issued a statement saying, “We expect physicians who participate in federal health care programs to bill for their services accurately and honestly and neither the Department of Justice nor the taxpayers will tolerate those who knowingly overbill federal health care
programs.” William J. Hochul, Jr., U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York said they will continue to vigorously enforce the False Claims Act for the protection of the taxpayers and the United States government. “We will continue to vigorously enforce the False Claims Act for the protection of the taxpayers and the United States government,” said William J. Hochul, Jr., U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York. “The Obedian settlement vividly illustrates the role of dynamic law enforcement partnerships in the battle to protect Medicare from those who would bill inappropriately,” said Thomas O’Donnell, Special Agent in Charge of the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, New York region. “Our office continues working to ensure that taxpayer money is spent wisely.” “This resolution is a prime example of CMS’ successful partnership with the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice to carry out our mission to prevent and detect Medicare fraud and protect the Medicare Trust Fund,” said Peter Budett, Deputy Administrator and Director, Center for Program Integrity in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
call themselves a University. They were also unlicensed under New York State Education Law, evading an array of legal protections designed to protect New Yorkers from fraud. Despite diligent efforts, many consumers were unable to conclude even a single real estate deal and were left worse off than they had been before enrolling in the Trump University programs. Some consumers faced thousands of dollars of debt due to the expensive cost of the Elite Programs. Many felt they had been victims of an elaborate scam. Trump University also committed violations of federal consumer protection law. Federal law provides a three business-day right of cancellation for the type of purchases at issue here, but Trump University repeatedly failed to honor consumers’ timely requests to cancel. The lawsuit seeks full restitution for the more than 5,000 consumers nationwide who were defrauded of over $40 million in the scheme, disgorgement of profits, as well as costs and penalties and injunctive relief prohibiting these types of illegal practices going forward. Even though Trump University was notified by the New York State Education Department (“NYSED”) as early as 2005 that these practices violated New York law, Trump University did not change its name until May 2010 and never received a license to operate in the state. As a result, many students believed they were attending a University, when they were not. This misconception was reinforced by Trump University’s use of a University-like seal on much of its material and awarding diplomalike Certificates of Completion bearing Donald Trump’s signature.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados: The Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) is encouraging the region’s fashion designers to apply to participate in this year’s Dominicana Moda in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, from October 21-26, 2013. Caribbean Export, under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF), will be collaborating in the organization of Dominicana Moda 2013 (DM2013) to support fashion designers in showing their collection during the Dominican Republic official Fashion Week.

This collaborative effort will provide a
great opportunity for emerging and established fashion designers in the Caribbean to expose their vision at a regional and international stage, thus positioning the Caribbean as an international go-to location for fashion design and ingenuity. In the past eight years, Dominicana Moda has grown to be the official Fashion Week of the Dominican Republic, thus the most important platform for the fashion Industry.

Dominicana Moda is a yearly event for around six days of continuous runway shows where the best brands and designers come together. Major fashion houses have participated in the past, and this year it will surely continue to grow.
Mother of Grenada's former revolutionary leader Maurice Bishop dies at 97
ST GEORGE’S, Grenada: The mother and wife of two of Grenada’s leading revolutionaries, Alimenta Bishop -the mother of Grenada’s second prime minister, Maurice Bishop, and the wife of Rupert Bishop (the father of Maurice) -- died on Saturday at the age of 97. “Every year I get upset about the same thing” she said eight years ago. “Every time I ask why I can’t get a word about my son’s body, they saying to forgive, but I am saying how can I forgive when I don’t have results about my son.” In 2005, 22 years after he was assassinated, Maurice Bishop’s mother asked the Grenada authorities to release the body of her son to her care. The mother of the Spice Island’s former leading revolutionary said even Jesus’s mother got his body to bury after they crucified him. Rupert Bishop. Photo: grenadarevolutiononline “His mother was able to get his body to
bury, but when I ask what happened to my son, nobody would tell me,” Mrs Bishop said. A l i m e n t a Bishop said she at least got her husband Rupert Bishop’s body to bury. “I could go to the grave and Alimenta Bishop say this is the spot where my husband is buried, but I can’t say that for my son.”Rupert Bishop was shot and killed by bullets from a police constable’s gun on January 21, 1974. He was standing in the doorway of Otway House, the home of the Grenada Seamen and Waterfront Workers Union on the Carenage when he was gunned down on what was later dubbed Bloody Monday.

Shaw may challenge Holness for JLP Party Leader
Kingston, Jamaica; ndrew Holness, Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Leader, has come out swinging amid signs that he could face a challenge from Deputy Leader Audley Shaw for the post. At the same, Holness has declared that he will not mount a counter campaign in the event there is a race for the post. In his first public response since Shaw indicated on the weekend that he is considering a bid for the Party's leadership, Holness stated that he is ready for a challenge. However, he said he will not be distracted. Speaking Sunday night at the JLP's constituency office in South Central St. Catherine, Holness said he intends to remain focused on his duties as Opposition Leader. “I will not stop my national duty to focus on campaigning. I will continue to look about the nation’s business. As Leader of the party, I’m not going to stop looking about your business to go campaigning,” asserted Mr. Holness. Holness said he has consulted with the people of the country and in consultation with the members of the party, he has concluded that the supporters are comfortable with him as the leader of the party. He said if others see the need, they should go ahead and mount a campaign. Shaw is in the process of consulting with delegates before making a decision on the matter in coming weeks. If Mr. Shaw is
Andrew Holness Andrew Holness JLP Leader JLP Deputy Leader
nominated for the post of JLP Leader, the Party will conduct an election before its annual conference in midNovember. And despite not yet committing to run for the post, Shaw has outlined his plans if he becomes the new JLP Leader. “If I become leader I am gonna be at the office of the Leader of the Opposition…if I become leader, I am gonna be on the ground across this country talking the issues with the people, explaining things to them properly, so that when we become government, there will be a better opportunity for buy-in of policies,” said Mr. Shaw. Meanwhile, at least one JLP Member of Parliament is of the view that a leadership bid will have a disruptive effect on the Party. Peranel Charles, North Central Clarendon representative, Sunday night also suggested that it would not receive much support from JLP members.

executive director of the Jamaica AntiDoping Commission (JADCo) that its drugs-testing programme was completely inadequate. Writing in CNN’s Sport Illustrated this week, former JADCo boss Anne Shirley accused the Government of failing to seriously deal with doping control despite several recommendations and warnings. Commenting on Shirley’s report, the WADA chief said if Jamaica refused to take its responsibilities seriously, WADA could
deem JADCo non-compliant with its code. Howman has also admitted that WADA was aware that JADCO conducted just one out-of-competition test in the five months leading up to the London Olympic Games last year. According to the newspaper article, Howman refused to reveal whether WADA had contacted JADCo or the Jamaican Government following Shirley’s article, describing such discussions as “confidential”.

Usain Bolt poses with the gold medals he won in the men's 100m, 200m and 4x100m relays.
By Robert Taylor, Trackalerts.Com Contributor amaica with all the bad publicity leading up to the world championship and loss of top quality athletes for one reason or another showed resilience and came out of the competition with positive results. Many expectations were tempered by concerns but the result showed the concerns were overly pessimistic. The performance of some athletes were expected, others were way above expectation while there are those who showed there was room for growth and development. Starting with the high performers, ShellyAnn Fraser-Pryce comes to the forefront. The ease at which she dominated the 100m was surprising but brilliant. Her 200m victory to go with 100m placed her in a category many past greats never achieved. She was stupendous, exciting, whatever adjective one chooses to use, and it would be relevant to what she did. Her infectious smile and almost childlike exuberance makes fan gravitate to her and enjoy celebrating her victories with her. Kerron Stewart performance in the 100m finals give us cause for optimism that she is on the way to regain her 2009 form. Her reaction time of .229 was not something I think even she expected. Yet with all this she was able to close with a fast finish fifth place position of 10.97 and a 300th of a second outside the medal. The name Usain Bolt has been synominous with victory, records and impromptu cel-

ebration. His victories seem almost anti-climatic. The standards and times run are now being compared with other performances. This is something unusual because performers and
performances are generally compared with other great athletes whether former or presents.

Gay activists stop Queen Ifrica’sCanadian show R
eggae fans in Canada will not get the opportunity to see Queen Ifrica perform on the weekend at Rastafest as promoters have removed her from the show. The Canadian publication, Daily Xtra said the cancellation follows a call by gay rights activists including the overseas-based gay rights organisation-Jamaica Association of Gays and Lesbians Abroad (JAGLA) to Canadian Immigration to immediately withdraw a work permit issued to Queen Ifrica ahead of her performance. Queen Ifrica’s management team in a statement on Friday expressed “shock and disappointment at the brouhaha arising from certain aspects of her performance at Jamaica’s Independence Grand Gala on August 6” Her management team also noted that the artiste’s work permit was not withdrawn. The artiste is appalled and disappointed with the way in which the propaganda machinery is leading the public to believe that she is against any person or group of persons and refutes the claim that her work permit has been withdrawn by the Canadian Government contrary to statements made to that effect by prominent media houses in
Jamaica. Her management team wants to make it clear that work permits for Queen Ifrica has not been withdrawn by the Canadian Government. According to the release Queen Ifrica QUEEN IFRICA remains grounded in her morals which espouses heterosexuality. “She wants to make it abundantly and emphatically clear, that she does not condone nor has ever supported or advocated violence against any group or community, whether implicitly or explicitly. This she asserts goes against the very grain of her Rastafarian conviction. The LGBT must decide whether the rights that they claim for themselves are not rights for everyone.” Following reports that Queen Ifrica would not be performing at Rastafest, Kerron Orlando, a representative from JALGA, welcomed the decision by the promoters stating that it was sending a clear message that persons who make comments that jeopardize the well-being of Gays.

Will He Cheat?
ecent studies reveal that 50%-60% of married men engage in extramarital sex at some time or another during their relationship (about 45%-55% of married women cheat). And the women being cheated on, about 70% have no idea. Or maybe they just don’t want to know. It doesn’t have to be that way. Men give off tons of hints that they’re inclined to cheat. For starters, there are the classic signs: •A sudden drop off in sex •Cash withdrawals or credit card charges you can’t account for •Working late a lot •New attention to his looks and wardrobe •An eagerness to run errands that get him out of the house for hours But more subtle signs, certain personHe’s an excellent liar.

That distraction when we dine
Dear Divine Diva: y friend "Robert" knows everyone in town. It creates a huge distraction when we dine in a restaurant because he is constantly looking around to see who else he knows. When he spots someone, he leaves me sitting at the table to go and say hello to the person. If this happened once, it would be acceptable. But it occurs continually throughout the meal and interrupts our conversation. The fact that Robert is constantly scouting the room for others to greet makes meaningful conversation impossible because his mind is never fully present. I have reached the point of no longer wanting to dine with him although he is a good friend. How would you recommend resolving this? -Distraction, Long Isand
Everybody talks about her dentures
Dear Divine Diva: work with a nice woman in a serviceoriented job. She wears a full set of dentures --top and bottom. When she's nervous, she has a habit of "clicking" and adjusting them. It gets worse when she's had an energy drink. Personally, I can ignore it. But I have heard comments from customers and coworkers who wonder if she's "on something" -- like drugs. Should I tell her what people are saying or suggest she use a product to help keep the dentures in place? I would hate for her reputation to be ruined because of this nervous habit. -Caring Co-Worker, Bronx
Dear Distraction: Have an honest talk with Robert, and explain how his rudeness has made you feel. If his behavior continues, then socialize with him in places where there are no distractions --like his home or yours. He may be insecure and feel a compulsion to ingratiate himself with others, but constantly leaving you alone at the table shows lack of consideration for your feelings. Also, I find it curious that all those people he knows do not come by your table to greet him -- and possibly be introduced, don't you? Always, Divine Diva
Dear Caring Co-Worker: Take the woman aside and tell her privately that the clicking is distracting to customers and co-workers. She may not be aware that she is doing anything. Suggest that she discuss this with her dentist because her dentures may need adjusting -or, as you mentioned, her dentist can recommend a product to stabilize them. She may be more receptive if she hears it from a dental health professional. -Always, Divine Diva

ARIES (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19): Planning your getaway is not a very smart strategy. Forget about all your lofty ideas and focus on exactly what is expected of you now, leaving the great escape for some other day. TAURUS (Apr. 20 – May 20): You want to be seen as reliable, yet you're still willing to attempt something new, even if it means putting your reputation at risk. GEMINI (May 21 – Jun. 20): Take the time to discover how reality differs from what others are saying now. Listen in between the spoken words so you don't miss what's being left out. It's best to know the shortcomings of a plan before you endorse it. CANCER (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22): You're more interested in making a noticeable splash than in achieving your goals. Luckily, you have an excellent chance of succeeding at both now, so taking a risk is an excellent idea as long as you are honest about your intentions. . LEO (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22): Others may grow tired if all you do is talk about yourself. Instead of trying to convince everyone that your plan is the best, find the good in someone else's approach. VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Don't worry if you make a brilliant breakthrough that isn't noticed right away by anyone else. Remember, you are running ahead of the curve now and it will take time for others to catch up. LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct.22): You should be able to make it appear as if you are working even when your mind is
preoccupied with your personal life. Remember, you don't need to tell everyone everything; some things are better kept to yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): While some people are off enjoying their summer vacations now, you may be busy putting your life and your career back on track. You might be feeling as if it's time to live up to your obligations, but don't concentrate all your efforts on getting ahead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec.21): There are simply too many demands being made on you now. You're responsible to think things through clearly not only for your own benefit, but also for everyone else. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Your strength of purpose to create something totally new and different motivates you to discuss difficult relationship issues with your partner, even if resolution seems unlikely. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Inviting a few friends over for a social gathering sounds like a great idea. However, it might not be prudent to call everyone you know, for they all could show up all at once, transforming your idea for a casual little get-together into a major event. PISCES (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20): Some of your current thoughts may be absolutely brilliant but they can't take form until you have a chance to nurture them. Get your required tasks out of the way so you have plenty of time to further develop your most unconventional inspirations.

Health Department Launches “CalCutter” a Free Mobile App
he Health Department launched a free mobile app today that will help cooks calculate how many calories are in the food they prepare and find ways to reduce calorie counts. With CalCutter, restaurant chefs or home cooks can enter the ingredients and number of servings of a recipe and the app will calculate the number of calories per serving in the finished dish. CalCutter will then suggest alternative ingredients or cooking methods that reduce the number of calories in the dish. The Department also announced it will be working with celebrity chef and New York Times bestselling author Rocco DiSpirito to incorporate low-calorie ingredient swaps into the app. “Many people want to count calories as a way to avoid gaining weight, but they have no way of knowing how many calories are in restaurant food or even food they prepare themselves,” said Health
Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley. “CalCutter is a free, simple tool to help cooks figure out how many calories their recipes deliver. We encourage both restaurant cooks and home cooks to use this tool and prepare food with calorie counts that fit into a healthy diet.” Studies show that most people – including even trained dieticians – have great difficulty estimating the calorie counts of foods. This makes it very difficult for people to watch calories to try to avoid gaining weight. CalCutter is designed to help with this problem. New Yorkers can obtain information and tips on how to eat well by calling 311 or visiting nyc.gov and searching for “Eating Healthy.” To download CalCutter for iPhone, Android or to view it on the web, visit: Smartphone Apps or go to nyc.gov and search “CalCutter.”

I Vincent HoSang Chairman, Caribbean Food Delights

I met with the Minister of Health, Dr. Fenton Ferguson a few weeks ago. He asked if I can purchase two machines as Kingston needs one also. If 500,000 people give a one-time donation of $10, we will be closer to our goal. Please send donations to Vincent HoSang Family Foundation (VHFF), 117 Route 303, Suite B, Tappan, NY 10983.

Top 5 Tips for Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur

field you choose for starting a business – be a lifelong student. The world is full of people who have stopped learning and who think they’ve got it all figured out. You’ve no doubt met some of them already – and you’ll meet plenty more. Their favorite word is “No.” They will give you a million reasons why something can’t be done or shouldn’t be done. Don’t listen to them, don’t be deterred by them, and don’t become one of them. Not if you want to fulfill your potential – and not if you want to change the world for the better.

JN Money Transfer Implements New Remittance Procedures
Kingston, Jmaica: N Money Services Limited (JNMS), the remittance arm of the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS), has implemented new procedures for collecting and sending remittances at its JN Money Transfer locations in western Jamaica and the United States of America. “Effective August 5, 2013, persons who live in the parishes of Westmoreland, Hanover, St. James and Trelawny must collect funds, sent using JN Money Transfer, at locations in their respective parishes,” Leesa Kow, General Manager, JNMS said. Kow said persons collecting funds that exceed J$100,000 are required to produce two pieces of identification- a driver’s license, elector registration identification card or passport. These two pieces of identification must be presented along with a tax registration number (TRN) card. Persons collecting funds of J$150,000 or more must present proof of their address, in addition to two pieces of identification and their TRN. Only a utility bill in the name of the person collecting the funds, or a bank statement, which must also be in the name of the money transfer recipient, are accepted as proof of address. A letter from a Justice of the Peace attesting the address of the money transfer recipient may also be accepted. JNMS operates 18 JN Money Transfer locations in Westmoreland, Hanover, St. James and Trelawny. The JNMS General Manager said new procedures were also implemented on August
5. Give back. You are ultimately responsible for your success and failure, but you only succeed if you share the reward with others. At the end of the day, ask yourself: “Am I making a difference in the lives of others?” My first charitable donation was a $5 check to my alma mater, Johns Hopkins, not long after I graduated. I was just scraping by back then, but I continued to give. And while the checks may be bigger today, they come with the same spirit. You don’t have to be wealthy to give back. You can give back by getting involved and giving your time and talents. You just have to be committed to opening doors for others.
Leesa Kow General Manager, JNMS
7, 2013 for persons in the US sending funds to Jamaica from any of the 76 JN Money Transfer locations in the US. Miss Kow said no more than US$1000 can be sent in a single transaction at JN Money Transfer branches and no more than US$500 using JN Money Transfer agents. Persons sending funds that amount to US$999.99 or more are also required to identify their source of funds. In addition, persons using JN Money Transfer for the first time are required to produce identification when sending funds to Jamaica. “We recognise that this may pose some inconvenience to our customers, but these procedures have become necessary as we seek to maintain the necessary “checks and balances” and mitigate the misuse of our systems for illicit activities,” she said.

The Vincent Hosang Family Foundation Receives $5000 Boost TAPPAN: he Vincent HoSang Family Foundation, VHFF is $5,130.00 richer thanks to veteran female promoter, Alma Campbell’s fund-raising efforts. The money was raised through her organization, M.A.N Promotion’s Annual Fundraising Gala, held at Crawford Park Mansion in Rye Brook recently and will go toward the VHFF’s Jamaica LINAC Cancer Machine Project Initiative. In making her presentation at the VHFF headquarters in Tappan, Campbell lauded the charity organization’s chairman and philanthropist, Vincent HoSang for his dedicated service to humanity and for his infectious spirit of giving.
The VHFF’s Jamaica LINAC Cancer Project Initiative Fund now stands at approximately $60,000. The VHFF is appealing to the Caribbean Diaspora, more so Jamaicans, to continue their support of the Jamaica LINAC Cancer Machine Project Initiative until the official handing over ceremony to the Jamaica government takes place later this year, in Jamaica. At that time, the VHFF will use the opportunity to publicly acknowledge and thank its numerous donors and contributors.
