  • You are right, the moral fabric was not reinforced when a former prime minister refused to fire a former speaker of the House of Assembly because he did nothing illegal although it was immoral. A position you supported. You have absolutely no credibility to suggest anybody is engaged in immoral behaviour.

    I wonder what the statistics were on the numbers of stabbing in the month of April in the year 1978? What I am saying is that the increased in gun violence does not necessarily entails an increase in violence crime, but that the criminal element has found a new tool to do their killing …

    Nevertheless, growing up in the Bush Hall area I often heard of stabbings on a regular basis, but no one kept record as they do today with regard to this new phenomenon of gun violence …

    | sincerely hope this current trend of an upward increase in intentional homicide is a one off anamoly and does not become the norm. Because, if Bim should become entrenched in violent crimes, year on year, like some of her regional neighbours … it would be a devastating blow on the national psyche of our people.

With an avergae per capita murder rate of 20 /100, 000, four times the USA rate, it’s no wonder the region are often labelled a conflict zone. The gun is the overwhelmingly choice of weapon used in killings, injuries result from shootings, and robberies.

    Violent crimes are akin to contagious diseases, and are hard to cure if left to fester. The Jamaica experience comes to mind. Jamaica goes from a muder rate of 5/100000 at independence(1962), to 10/100000 by 1972. Since then, it has never look back, having a per capita murder rate today akin to a civil war conflict.

    Over the past decade and a half, we have seen a trending increase in the murder rate of a number of CARICOM member states.This has also accompany by an increase in the flow of illegal small arms coming mostly from the USA. The two trends above are highly correlated. Geography is destiny, according to the saying, is true to a large degree. It is therefore not rocket science to notice that small island nations in the pacfic region doesn’t suffer the same gun violence as we do in the caribbean.

    Swamp life restored
    Article by
    Colville Mounsey
    Published on
    May 6, 2019

    After a near three-year onslaught from untreated sewage prior to the construction of the new temporary outfall last December, the ecosystem of Barbados’ major wetland, the Graeme Hall Swamp, has almost returned to normalcy.

    This revelation was made by Minister of Energy and Water Resources, Wilfred Abrahams, who told Barbados TODAY that Government has done considerable rehabilitation of the swamp and it was now left up to nature to take its course.

    “The rehabilitation of Graeme Hall is going really well. I would advise anyone to go down there and see for themselves because we all know what it used to look like. The fish are back, the birds are back, everything is back to how it was. There is no more smell and the swamp is being properly maintained,” said Abrahams.

    The minister further explained that in their efforts to rehabilitate the wetland, it was important that a balance was struck between man-made help and nature’s propensity to heal itself.

    “We are doing all we can do to get the swamp back up but the problem is that you can over-engineer things in an ecosystem. So, we have to be careful sending things in there to excavate. There are settled solids, so the swamp is not as deep as it was before. We could go in with an excavator and dig it out or we could wait for the rains and let the swamp naturally flush itself out,” he said.

    The ecological attraction came under threat during the worsening sewage crisis on the south coast. Some business owners and residents impacted by the spills took matters into their own hands and were resorting to dumping the effluent, which had pooled in their backyards for months, into the swamp.

    In addition, with blockages in the lines leading to the now decommissioned Needham’s Point system, the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) was forced to temporarily mitigate the effluent spilling onto the streets of the south coast, by redirecting the sewage outflow through the canals of the swamp and into the sea. This had also resulted in the closure of Worthing Beach for several months.

    Following a visit to the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary a week after the Barbados Labour Party’s victory at the polls last May, Prime Minister Mia Mottley promised to allocate resources to rejuvenate the swamp immediately after a fix was found for the sewage crisis.

    In his recent interview with Barbados TODAY, Abrahams explained that while Government has kept its promise, the average Barbadian has a part to play in seeing the rehabilitation process through. In making this point, the minister pointed out that recent efforts to replenish fish stocks are being undermined by persons fishing in the swamp.

    “The fish were reintroduced as part of the ecosystem of the swamp to keep down mosquitoes. So, if people go and catch the fish before they have a chance to spawn, then the mosquito issue is going to come back. We are working hard to restore balance to the ecosystem and the fact that fish are in there alive and well means that water levels are coming back to where they were, so, we can’t have people tampering with what we are doing,” stressed Abrahams.

    “Justice Jacqueline Cornelius also ruled last month that Carrington render an account of all sums belonging to the particular estate within 28 days. He was also ordered to “pay interest at the rate of per annum” from May 13 until the entire sum is paid, and legal costs of over $7 700 incurred by Griffiths.”

    Can you provide any evidence to support your claim above that there are no beating/lashes at private schools? I attended both public and private schools in Barbados, and I recall receiving lashes at the private schools. I also witnessed, first hand, beatings – at private schools – dished out by teachers to students of various ethnic backgrounds (including Caucasians).

    I believe if these people actually had “proof of evidence,” they would have gone to Court or call the police, rather than using social media to talk shiite and doing nothing in the process. There is a fundamental tendency in human behavior. Satisfaction progressively decreases if we continually consume the same item. This is best explained by the law of diminishing marginal utility.

    Therefore, he DID NOT have any CHOICE but to “hasten a conclusion.”

    Remember, on December 9, 2014, Madame Justice Jacqueline Cornelius “ORDERED Carrington to render an account of all sums belonging to the Worrell estate which he had received on Griffiths’ behalf, WITHIN 28 days.”

    Also, remember on January 29, 2015, FORTY-EIGHT (48) days AFTER the December 9, 2014 ruling, a banker’s cheque for over $200 000, which represented the amount due to Griffiths, was paid on behalf of Carrington to the law firm George Walton Payne and Co.

    Lord come for ya people, I actually like something that this DLP lapdog has said. But, but, but, when ya right, ya right.

    I am very much on Jackie Stewart’s side. I know that she would not rant and rave if there was not a problem with the way her mother’s land went Payne and Marshall’s way. Jackie, please do not curse me ok, I told you that I am on your side. I told you before, regardless of what you think about the judiciary, Payne, Marshall, Cow Williams and whoever else thought to be involved in this alleged scam, they are building on your mother’s land regardless of what proofs you have. There must be a legal loophole in this matter that you have not seen that they exploited that allowed them to do what they are doing. You are not going to make any headway in this matter by levelling insults at them and calling them all sorts of names via youtube or other social media. jackie, listen please, we all know what the system in Barbados is like, we know that it protects the strong and prey on the weak, but if you have documents proving that stinking George Payne and Dale Marshall illegally obtained your mother’s property it is time to take the matter to the next level. This can only be settled in a court of law and if you do not trust the system of law in Barbados then reach out to the Caribbean Court of Justice or present your case on British Broadcasting Media to tell one and all what you know about Land fraud scam in Barbados because you and your mother fell victim to it. You never know, the BBC, CNN or some other news network might just decide to follow your trail and conduct an investigation. Outside of all of that, it seems to me that you are not gaining much ground towards rectification. I hope you understand because you are no fool.

    I agree with you, but some people hate hearing the truth. It seems as though Stewart believes if you don’t support the way she is doing things, you must be defending Marshall and Payne and is against her, then she turns her hostility on you.

    Using social media to rant and rave and insult people is not the way to solve her problems. After a time these videos become stale and her messages becomes lost, because people are hearing nothing new, just the same thing over and over in each video.

    If she has proof and is hesitant to use the local justice system, why not go to the CCJ.

    Myrie used that Court effectively and won a case against Barbados. Myrie’s lawyer used the news media to highlight her case and his intention to take her the matter to the CCJ.

    Stewart could likewise give a U.K. lawyer the proof and let him/her use the news media to highlight her case.

    Jackie is hurt, and an angry woman. And because of the way things operate in Barbados, she has made up her mind that she will not go down in silence like all others who have had their lands ”illegally” taken from under their feet. However, I have to agree with you. If she keeps on bringing the same message, eventually the real message and purpose of her activism will be lost. Jackie, it is ok to respond to what comments you do not like on social media and seek to expose the wrongs, but you have to be careful that in seeking to rage war against the establishment, you lose the main battle of your fight due to repetition and stagnation.

    When I was an undergraduate 25 years ago, we knew nothing about how the human brain develops. I was taught that the brain is fully mature by mid-childhood. Since then, we have developed MRI scanning that allows us to look inside the living human brain and track how it functions in terms of structure and activity across the lifespan. We now have a rich, detailed picture of how the human brain develops, and what it shows is that what I was learning in my textbooks was completely wrong. The brain continues to develop through childhood and adolescence and even into the 20s and 30s in some brain regions. White matter increases, grey matter decreases. These changes are thought to be caused by important neurodevelopmental processes that enable the brain to be moulded and influenced by the environment.(Quote)

    DO MRI’S SHOW THAT NEURAL TISSUE UNDERGOES DYSPLASIA TO MUSCLE TISSUE

    RE Is teenage crime a result of biological changes?
    NO! teenage crime resultS FROM INHERITING THE SIN NATURE AS CLEARLY TAUGHT IN ROMANS 5

    I JOHN 1: 8 POINTS OUT If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    NOTE NO SIN REFERS TO HAVING THE SIN NATURE , AND MUST BE DISTINGUISHED FROM I JOHN 1:10 WHICH STATES If we say that we have not sinned I.E COMMITTED ACTS OF SIN

    WE ALL COMMIT ACTS OF SIN ( ROMANS 3:23) BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE THE SIN NATURE

    Psalms 51:5 TEACHES CLEARLY “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.”

    @Hal. There are so many dynamic variables at play in crime and violence . Neurobiological development is just as important as the social environment in my opinion. Especially, the effect of the natural and socio- economic environment on brain development and the associated behavioral changes in the individual.

    The perpetrators and victims of violent crimes are overwhelming from the population subset of youthful male, why is that these violent behaviors tend to diminished with time? What kind of engineering is happening in the brain to illicit such change.

    I know nothing about neuro-biology and the new discipline of neuro-criminology. But I do know a bit about crime, which is largely a youthful social phenomenon (mainly male). People grow out of crime..
    There is a book by Professor Sarah-Jane Blakemore (Google her), which I have not yet read, but have seen the reviews – Inventing Ourselves: The Secret Life of the Teenage Brain – which has been well received, especially among criminologists.
    There is now a serious discussion about decriminalising youthful anti-social behaviour. But as I have said, violent crime is different – victims and perpetrators are often known to each other. One myth about violent crime is that of stranger danger.
    I had a friend who was a lawyer at one of the Magic Circle firms in the City of London and we used to entertain each other every time there was a violent crime. We used to anticipate the official views: all meant to reassure the public – arresting the usual suspects; it is a one-off; etc. That is why until recently the UK press used to ignore domestic violence, what the French call Crime Passionnel.
    Violent crime, especially by teenagers, is different to other forms such as burglaries, drug dealing, fraud, etc. Most murders are not intended, thus the charge of manslaughter. Gang murders (execution) get the publicity for obvious reasons.
