The news is abuzz about the possible end to the US Embargo of Cuba. The hope, not only for the Cuban people living there, but for the Cuban diaspora that had their properties stolen by the Castro regime is palpable. The embargo does more harm to the people in Cuba... Continue reading

CBC Photo Rex Murphy is brilliant and prolific. He's an author, columnist and Commentator. Not only will he make you think, but his wry sense of humour is top notch. His commentary on CBC's The National is unmatched in my not so humble opinion. Hope you enjoy his pointers for... Continue reading

Like anyone else, I am finding the cost of living going up on a weekly basis it seems, yet even so, the price gouging chorus is a bit much. Many businesses struggle to make ends meet these days and intentionally "gouging" their clients serves no useful purpose, other than hastening... Continue reading

We've seen John Nemeth live twice now at The Funky Biscuit, and his Blues/Soul sure grows on you. He has quite a voice and can blow that harmonica. And he's a prolific songwriter to boot. We picked up his recent release Memphis Grease, and it does not disappoint. Hope you... Continue reading

A fascinating event from the Cato Institute. "Evidence from academic institutions and international organizations shows dramatic improvements in human well-being. These improvements are especially striking in the developing world. Unfortunately, there is often a wide gap between reality and public perceptions, including that of many policymakers, scholars in unrelated fields,... Continue reading

Nassau Guardian Photo by Edward Hutcheson Whatever the reason or reasons are for The Hon. Ryan Pinder choosing to resign his post as the Minister of Financial Services, those reasons or the reason are his own. Some of us may want to speculate as to what this portends but this... Continue reading

by Edward Hutcheson Some are suggesting that former Prime Minister Ingraham is still in control of the Free National Movement; that is a possibility. This would also give reasons for some to proclaim that a vote for the FNM is really a vote for Ingraham in the next election; who... Continue reading

by Edward Hutcheson I cannot see what all of the fuss, is, about Dr.Minnis. I understand the problem of those who think he should be doing something more dynamic or entertaining; the old “trying to inspire and motivate so that people can see a difference” spiel. I do not think... Continue reading

by Adrian Gibson When one considers the recent crime wave and other national aliments afflicting our country, it is becoming patently clear that the wheels are coming off. As it relates to national issues, the government - who I shall collectively call the emperor - is clearly not wearing any... Continue reading

L to R: Perry Christie, Raul Castro I agree that the US should completely lift the embargo against Cuba and at the same time the Castro regime should lift its embargo on the Cuban people. While The Bahamas Government pokes its finger in the eye of our largest trading partner,... Continue reading

Sir, Listening to the good reverend gentleman who runs the Good Samaritan Home for the Aged on the News recently requesting urgent assistance to prevent the imminent closure of the Home; stating his pleas to government apparently fell on deaf ears. I’m very sorry to say this but this government... Continue reading

By coincidence I got to see the Bahamian premiere of Poverty, Inc last week at the Bahamas International Film Festival. The film posits that the many government aid agencies and NGO's might just be a significant part of the problem when we consider that after 40 years there has been... Continue reading

But do more regulations solve perceived problems? The Nassau Guardian editorial of December 4, 2014 asks where the oversight of the aviation industry is after two recent fatal crashes. The editorial raises concerns about passengers being switched between airlines, sometimes to an airline they might not have normally travelled. They... Continue reading

Sir, Have you noticed that both Messrs. Perry Christie and Shane Gibson appear to be very myopic in their condemnation of Baha Mar over the loss of 190 jobs at the old Crystal Palace? There is only ever a stunning silence from this duo when jobs are cut at Atlantis... Continue reading

by Adrian Gibson PUT frankly, I’m simply sick of the Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) and I often wonder how much more of this seeming ineptitude as it relates to providing continuous electricity and blatant disregard for the public that we—the people—could handle. The story of BEC is representative of the... Continue reading

In a recent TV interview Lomborg suggested we need smarter solutions and cheaper renewables to avert global warming. He also "promoted the UN's "The World We Want"-polling of 5 million people world-wide. People overwhelmingly placed good education, healthcare and jobs at the top of their priority list, with climate action... Continue reading

by Edward Hutcheson There was a local program hosted by Dr. Keith Wisdom, where he interviews prominent Bahamians about what was and is important to them in life, and he ends the session with a question that tugs at the heart of any nationalist like myself, “What is a Bahamian?”... Continue reading

We quite possibly wouldn't be in the mess we're in. The history of public policy foibles repeats itself so often to the detriment of Bahamians with justification from many political adherents, it's no longer funny. Just look at the current state of things here at home. Everywhere the government has... Continue reading

If you don't know by now, Rory Gallagher is one of my favourite musicians. Leaving the planet far too soon, he thankfully left a treasure trove of music. The photo on the left is of a statue of him in the town of Ballyshannon, Ireland where he was born. Hope... Continue reading
