NEW YORK CITY:

A Manhattan-based law firm that targets

Caribbean American clients is in a bit-

ter legal dispute with its former per-

sonal injury attorney who was fired after he is alleged to have poached crucial firm trade se- crets and other confidential and proprietary in- formation. Spar & Bernstein PC (S&B) alleges that attorney Adam S. Handler “engaged in an elaborate scheme to intentionally misappropri- ate, for his own use and in the months preced- ing his termination, unlawfully copied S&B’s comprehensive, proprietary inventory, audit and analysis of personal injury cases and other contact information as he was making prepa- ration to open his own law practices.” Continued on page 4

Protecting out children back home

A nation without a secured fu- ture is heading for destruc-

tion and poverty. We all agree that our children are one of the most important human resources towards a safe and sound future, as well as sustainable prosperity for any society. As the crime situation con- tinues to deteriorate in the Caribbean especially in Jamaica, the incidents of abduction, rape and murders seem to have be- come the order of the day. Not only have these monsters targeted our women but incidents of at- tacks on our children have also escalated. Rosalee Gage-Grey of the Child Development Agency in Jamaica reports some 200 cases of child abuse per week. In the parish of Westmoreland alone, 500 active cases are being inves- tigated, Gage-Grey told reporters

recently. The abuse of our children must never be condoned by any-

one or under any circumstance. Far too many of our children are being subjected to heartrending violence and physical, sexual and emotional abuse. Especially sad is the fact that many times these vicious crimes are carried out by family mem- bers and other persons they trust such as neighbors and teachers. Worst of all, it would appear that in many cases, the police and leaders in the community are pro- tecting these predators. Reports coming out of Ja- maica are that a significant num- ber of these children are called “barrel kids” as their parents or guardians are living overseas, in- cluding New York City. Other children, irresponsible adults or a grandparent with limited re- sources, are raising the children in most cases. It appears to be a diffi- cult quandary for both parents and children.

These parents were forced to migrate as jobs and other oppor- tunities are limited in Jamaica. These migrating parents also face economic and immigration challenges that prevent them from making enough money to adequately support their children, as well as extend family mem- bers, back home.

At the same time, their chil- dren are left behind to confront these monsters. Without adequate food, shel- ter and parental guidance, our children are being exposed to physical, sexual and emotional abuse from adults, especially men. While there several laws in place to protect our children, Ja- maica may need to amend the laws to include harsher penalties and longer prison terms for adults who abuse children. We are, however, suggesting that the Jamaican government in- crease the age of consent to 18 years and restrict the sales of al- cohol and cigarettes to adults over 21. If we are serious about the future, we must protect our chil- dren.

Understanding the Link Between Entrepreneurship and Leadership

M any entrepreneurs are leaders, and many leaders are entrepreneurs. Teach-

ing leadership in Saudi Arabia to female uni- versity students has its challenges, but it is also rewarding. In leadership classes, I at- tempt to broaden their mindset about entre- preneurship. The lessons are not limited to leadership, but also to encouraging my students to think about owning a business as an option. As an educator and an experienced business owner,

I believe it is essential for individuals to cre- ate their own stream of income. A business plan is incorporated in the curriculum. Most of my students are usually

excited to create a plan to start a business, yet they are unaware of the difficulties in running a successful business. In a recent project, they created a business plan for a niche mar- ket in Saudi Arabia. I required that they completed a SWOT analysis for their business idea. The students were placed into groups of three to four stu- dents to create a team effort. A particular team created the concept of a female trans- portation system they called Tigon (fast like

a tiger, strong like a lion). In the Western world, you might think

that there is nothing unique about that idea. However, women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia. The template given students requires them to create a vision, mission, goals, and business philosophy. They should also have

a solid marketing plan. That would entail fig-

uring out to whom they will market their products. No matter how good your product and/or services, the business enterprise can-

Dr Neva Alexander SPEAKS

SPEAKS

not succeed without a good marketing plan. It is risky to assume that you already know about your intended market. Market research

is vital to make sure you’re on the right track. The new and seasoned business owners need to ask themselves the following ques- tions:

1. What changes do you foresee in the indus-

try over the short and long term?

2. How will your company be poised to take

advantage of them?

3. What factors will make the company suc-

ceed?

4. What do you think your major competitive

strengths will be?

5. What background experience, skills, and

strengths would you personally bring to this

new venture?

6. Where will you acquire the capital to start

your business? Your business will have many

start-up expenses. It is important to estimate these expenses accurately and then plan where you will get sufficient capital.

7. After you start your business, how will you

reinvest the capital obtained from sales? This is a research project, and the more thorough your research, the less likely that you will omit important expenses or under- estimate them. An operation plan is desired when formulating your plan to start or con- tinue an existing business. It explains the daily operation of the business, its location, equipment, people, processes, and surround- ing environment.

In addition, the operation plan is essen- tial as it produces outcomes while managing restraints on time, money, and resources.

Protecting Workers' Rights at Nail Salon

NYC:

T he city is spreading the word about workers' rights following a

report about health and safety issues

at nails salons.

Volunteers from the Department of Consumer Affairs handed out flyers at about 100 subway stations during the Thursday morning rush. They included information about things like paid sick leave and minimum wage. "Our message is not not to go to nail salons. Our message is to make sure that workers' rights are being protected, that their safety is being protected, that con- sumers know what kinds of rights and re- sponsibility they have as well." A recent report found that some nail salon workers had been exposed to unsan- itary and unsafe conditions. Menin says volunteers will hand out flyers at these and other businesses across the city throughout the day.

DEA Makes Record-Breaking Heroin Bust

BRONX:

T he Drug Enforcement Adminis- tration is celebrating a record-

breaking drug bust after nearly $50 million of heroin was seized in The Bronx.

Authorities say they found over 150 pounds of heroin and $2 million in cash in an apartment on West 251st Street in the Fieldston section. Police arrested two men, including Jose Mercedes, who allegedly brought drugs to New York from Mexico. Officials say they're optimistic the bust will make a major impact on heroin distribution not just in the city but throughout the northeast. "The amount that he was bringing into New York City—we believe at least on a monthly basis and maybe every two weeks—was just tremendous and there cannot be that many Jose Mercedes in New York City so this is going to make hugea dent," said Special Prosecutor Brid- get Brennan. Investigators say Mercedes' organiza- tion transported heroin to Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Massa- chusetts. Police also arrested Yenci Cruz Fran- cisco with operating as a major trafficker.

Lawyer Accused of Stealing Clients Information

Continued from page 1 The complaint was filed Feb. 23 in the US Court Southern District of New York. Handler, who had been with firm since 2005, was fired Jan. 21. Handler strongly denies the allegations. Reports reaching Street Hype are that a fuming Brad Bernstein, president of P&B, ordered that Handler immediately be es- corted from the office as information reach- ing the company revealed Handler was in the process of stealing the law firm’s client in- formation. A Jan. 30 email by David Lewis, who had recently joined P&B as managing part- ner and general counsel, also accused Han- dler of sending a significant number of confidential documents and client’s informa- tion outside the firm in direct violation of firm’s policies. Handler was also accused of breaching confidentiality agreement and the client confidentiality provisions of the Rules of Professional Conduct. “In short, you have a significant number of our client files and information in your possession,” Lewis told Handler. In responding to Lewis, Handler strongly denied the allegations, insisting, “It appears you have been given misinformation which is creating this misunderstanding. I don’t have any client flies in my possession.” However, in a substitution of counsel letter dated Feb. 3 to P&B and obtained by Street Hype, Handler listed 17 clients from his former employer that he was seeking to represent at his new company, the Law Of- fices of Adam S. Handler. Last Monday, a Manhattan federal judge ordered the segregation of legal fees tied to some 50 personal injury cases, worth an es- timated $3.3 million and a further hearing was set for Tuesday. Steve Kaufman, managing partner of the Kaufman & Company PLLC which repre- sents P&B, told Street Hype that his client was very pleased with the outcome of the court hearing as Handler agreed to stop the soliciting of Bernstein’s clients and return confidential documents and clients informa- tion he took from his client. Aug. 10 has been set as the trial date in a Manhattan federal court.

Handler who is represented by attorney Jim Scalise said, “It’s all about money. The firm was facing financial hardship and was replacing the more experienced lawyers for younger and cheaper staff. I worked at Spar & Bernstein for 10 years and during the pe- riod my dedication and commitment to the company and clients have never being ques- tioned,” Handler told Street Hype.

“I have a good working relationship with all my clients and shortly after I was fired they requested my services,” Handler insisted. Handler was recently employed as a lead attorney in the Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death department of the law firm of Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP.

Long Island Men Charged With Stealing Nine Homes

BROOKLYN:

A Nassau County man has been indicted in connection with illegally transfer-

ring the titles of seven houses in Brooklyn and two in Queens from their true owners to himself or a corporation – then renting out some of the properties and selling others. A second man and the corporation are also named in the indictment. Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson on Tuesday identified the defen- dants as Danny Noble, 45, of 719 Jay Way, in Baldwin and Romelo Grey, 37, of 352 Randall Avenue, in Freeport. They were arraigned before Brooklyn

Supreme Court Justice Danny Chun on an indictment in which they are variously

charged with fourth-degree conspiracy, first- degree criminal possession of stolen prop- erty, second-degree grand larceny, and first-degree falsifying business records. Noble was ordered held on $500,000 bond or $250,000 cash bail. He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted. Grey was or- dered held on $25,000 bond or $10,000 cash bail. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted. Both were ordered to return to court on August 5. The corporation, 69 Adelphi

Street, LLC, is also variously charged in the indictment. It faces a fine of up to $10,000

if convicted.

According to the indictment, between June 29, 2010 and March 31, 2015, the de- fendants falsely transferred title to seven Brooklyn properties: 71 Carlton Avenue, 104 Vanderbilt Avenue, 45 North Oxford Street and 70 Clermont Avenue, in Fort Greene; 1391 East 95th Street in Canarsie; 357 Jefferson Avenue in Bedford- Stuyvesant; 729 Essex Street in East New York and two properties in Queens: 94-05 108th Street in Jamaica and 187-05 Liberty Avenue in Hollis. Five of the properties were transferred from the actual homeowners to Noble, ac- cording to the indictment, three were trans- ferred to 69 Adelphi Street, LLC, and one to

a third party. The defendants allegedly tar-

geted the properties because the owners did not live in the houses and rarely visited them. Once the titles were transferred, ac- cording to the indictment, the defendants carried out various scams in order to cash in on them.

Brooklyn Restaurant Owner Jailed for Failing to Pay Employees

BROOKLYN:

E arl Davis, 26, of a Brooklyn address and owner of Edna’s Soul Food Restaurant

in Brownsville, Brooklyn has been sen- tenced to one year in jail for failing to pay 15 employees including cashiers, fry cooks, servers, cleaners, delivery drivers and an as- sistant manager more than $17,000 in back wages. Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson on May 6 announced that Davis pleaded guilty to one count of attempted scheme to defraud in the first-degree. The District Attorney said that, from October 2013 to July 2014, Davis employed at least 15 people to work at Edna’s Soul Food, a take-out and delivery restaurant lo- cated at 2258 Atlantic Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn, using the corporate

identities Edna’s 1735 Pitkin Avenue LLC d/b/a Edna’s Soul Food, ESF 2258 Atlantic Avenue , LLC d/b/a Edna’s Soul Food, and Edna’s Restaurant Group, Inc. d/b/a Edna’s Soul Food a/k/a Lang Rock Equity Partners. Davis served as the restaurant’s presi- dent and ran the day-to-day operations.

Earl Davis, 26,was sentenced to one year in jail for failing to pay his restaurant employees up to $17,000 in back wages.

The District Attorney said that Davis promised to pay the workers $8 to $10 an hour to work as cashiers, fry cooks, servers, cleaners, delivery drivers, and as an assistant manager. When the defendants did pay the work- ers the defendants paid them in cash without

pay stubs, gave the workers checks that bounced, confiscated the workers’ tips, re- fused to pay overtime, and ultimately failed to pay the workers all the wages owed to them for up to two months of work. The District Attorney said that Davis told the workers he planned to open addi- tional restaurants and that, if they continued to work for him, he would reward them with promotions and raises, as well as pay them back wages. The District Attorney further stated that Davis was verbally abusive towards the workers and regularly argued with, yelled at, physically attacked, and fired workers who asked for their wages. Although the defendants refused to pay the workers all the wages owed to them, the workers saw defendant Davis take cash from

the register on almost a daily basis. This investigation was initiated by a call to the District Attorney’s Labor Frauds Unit Helpline. If you believe you have been a vic- tim of Labor Fraud, such as wage theft or re- taliation, please call our Labor Frauds Unit at 718-250-3770.

Banks Fined Over $5B For Market Rigging

F our of the world's biggest banks agreed last Wednesday to pay more than $5 bil-

lion in penalties and plead guilty to rigging the currency markets — a rare instance in which federal prosecutors have wrung an ad- mission of criminal wrongdoing from a major financial institution. Traders at JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Barclays and the Royal Bank of Scotland were accused of working together to manip- ulate rates on the foreign exchange market,

where hundreds of billions of dollars and euros change hands back and forth. In the past 18 months, prosecutors have brought criminal cases against banks accused of tax evasion and sanctions violations, and have reached multibillion-dollar settlements with several others for their roles in the 2008 financial meltdown. Prosecutors said traders shared cus- tomer orders through chat rooms and used that information to profit at their clients' ex-

penses. The traders called themselves "The Cartel," and in one of those chat rooms, a Barclays employee wrote: "if you aint cheat- ing, you aint trying," investigators said. The banks will pay a combined $2.5 bil- lion in criminal penalties for manipulation of currency rates between 2007 and 2013. The Federal Reserve is slapping them with an ad- ditional $1.6 billion in fines. Finally, Britain's Barclays is paying an additional $1.3 billion to British and U.S. regulators.

Queens Doctor Arrested on Drug Charges

A Queens doctor is arrested on charges of

illegally selling prescription painkillers. The city's Special Narcotics Prosecutor

He is accused of illegally selling 30,000 oxycodone pills. Prosecutors say he wrote the prescrip- tions for three patients in the six months be- fore his retirement in 2013.

Duffy's office at the time was on 30th Avenue in Astoria. He faces 130 counts of Criminal Sale of a Prescription for a Controlled Substance.

Meanwhile, member states of the Human Rights Council continue their call for Jamaica
to repeal the buggery law and legalise same sex marriage. Justice Minister Mark Golding,

should take a fresh look at a more integrated approach to tackling the region’s development
challenges.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 45th annual meeting of the board of governors
of the CDB, he proposed what he called an integrated regional approach to the production and
distribution of alternative energy, be it blue or green energy.
“Wouldn’t it be a game changer if the Caribbean assumed leadership in alternative energy
export? That would have enormous implication for the cost of doing business and development
in the region? A leadership role here will do wonders for our competitiveness. Imagine a new
OECS space with St Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, and Grenada, leading in geothermal energy
for the sub-region, Puerto Rico, the French overseas territories and southern islands,” Harris
said.

LEGAL AFFAIRS

Avoid immigration Scams

O n November 20, 2014, the President announced a series of executive actions to crack down on illegal immigration at

the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal back- ground check and pay taxes in order to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation. These initiatives have not yet been implemented, and USCIS is not accepting any requests or applications at this time. Beware of anyone who offers to help you submit an application or a request for any of these actions before they are available. You could become a victim of an immigration scam. Subscribe to the USCIS Executive Actions on Immigration web page to get updates when new information is posted. If you need legal advice on immigration matters, make sure that the person you rely on is authorized to give you legal ad- vice. Only an attorney or an accredited representative working for a Board of Immigration Appeals-recognized organization can give you legal advice.

The Internet, newspapers, radio, community bulletin boards and storefronts are filled with advertisements offering immigration help. Not all of this information is from attorneys and accredited representatives. There is a lot of information that comes from organizations

and individuals who are not authorized to give you legal advice, such as “notarios” and other unauthorized representatives. The wrong help can hurt. Here is some important information that can help you avoid common immigration scams. Telephone Scams Telephone ScamsDo not fall victim to telephone scammers pos- ing as USCIS personnel or other government officials. In most instances, scammers will:

• request personal information (Social Security number, Pass- port number, or A-number);

identify false problems with your immigration record; and ask for payment to correct the records. If a scammer calls you, say “No, thank you” and hang up.

These phone calls are being made by immigration scammers at- tempting to take your money and your credit card information. USCIS will not call you to ask for any form of payment over the phone. Don’t give payment over the phone to anyone who claims to be a USCIS official. If you have been a victim of this telephone scam, please report it to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

“Notario Publico” Image of someone stamping a documentIn many Latin Amer- ican countries, the term “notario publico” (for “notary public”) stands for something very different than what it means in the United States. In many Spanish-speaking nations, “notarios” are powerful attorneys with special legal credentials. In the U.S., however, notary publics are people appointed by state govern- ments to witness the signing of important documents and ad- minister oaths. "Notarios publico,” are not authorized to provide you with any legal services related to immigration.

Gatlin 'kicked out' of Beijing World Challenge

J ustin Gatlin says he has been "kicked out" of the Beijing

World Challenge by meeting or- ganisers. The 33-year-old, who has served two doping bans, was due to race in China on Wednesday after running his fastest ever 100m time of 9.74 seconds in Doha. Gatlin was unsure about his fitness following a flight to Bei- jing but appeared ready to com- pete after coming through a training session on Monday. "They didn't have any re- spect for me so they said 'you better leave'," he said. "I was happy to stay. I was cramping a lot after the fastest my body has ever run." The meeting organisers have yet to respond to the Amer- ican's comments.

"No, this is because they think he is injured and they don't want him here if he's injured." Gatlin's time of 9.74 from Friday's Doha Diamond League meeting is the fastest in the world so far this year and joint- sixth quickest 100m time in his- tory.

"It's crazy. I have no idea what they were thinking. I think they thought I wasn't man enough and I might pull up in the

race, or not finish it and then still ask for money," added Gatlin. "But I'm not a man like that. I'm not the kind of guy to cheat people of their money or let the

Sri Lanka women cricketers 'forced

into sexual favours'

Members of Sri Lanka's women's cricket team were forced to perform sexual favours to keep their places in the team, the sports ministry has said. The ministry said evidence of sexual harassment was uncovered in an investi- gation begun last year. It was launched following reports a player had been dropped for refusing to have sex with cricketing officials. Disciplinary procedures would now be initiated, the ministry said, without naming the individuals involved. "It is a shameful incident," Sri Lankan Children's Minister Rosy Senanayake told the AFP news agency. It is not clear what action will be taken against the alleged offenders.

'No limits' for Serena in her chase for greatness

B est in the business – In recent years, Serena Williams has been the undisputed force in women's tennis. The American has won an incredible 19 grand slam titles and is

looking to triumph at the French Open for a third time. But what is it that sets Serena apart

from her rivals? Ahead of this year's French Open in Paris, CNN sat down with Patrick Mouratoglou -- who began coaching Williams in 2012. Their trophy tally since teaming up includes a Wimbledon title, an Olympic gold medal, three U.S. Open titles, a Roland Garros title and an Australian crown, lifting her back up to the pinnacle of the women's game Mouratoglou outlines the main reasons for her dominance of the game. First reason, I would say, is the ability to win, which means she refuses to lose; says Mouratoglou of the star who first turned pro 20 years ago. She’s an unbelievable competitor. Williams’ first grand slam title came at the 1999 U.S. Open, where she defeated Martina Hingis in the final. Serena Williams is the world's No. 1 women's tennis.

town-hall meetings

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- President of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Why- cliffe “Dave” Cameron, will host a series of public town-hall meetings around the Caribbean over a period of three months, starting this Friday in Barbados. Cameron said it was part of the WICB’s plan to engage directly with the re- gional public on the issues facing the game in the region. The first town-hall meeting will take place at the Cave Hill campus of the Uni- versity of the West Indies, starting from 7 pm.

Plans are already underway to stage a second public town-hall meeting just prior to the first Test between West Indies and Australia in Dominica.

New York Cosmos soccer match to be telecast from Cuba on June 2

O NE World Sports will produce and tele- vise the historic June 2 soccer match be-

tween the New York Cosmos and the Cuba National Team. The telecast begins at 5 pm Eastern time live from Havana, Cuba with the kickoff scheduled for 5:12 pm ET. "As the broadcast home of the Cosmos -- who remain the most iconic US pro soccer brand worldwide -- and the network focused on bringing global sports to American fans, ONE World Sports is an ideal platform to showcase this historic match," said Alexander "Sandy" Brown, ONE World Sports president and CEO. This is the first live sports production in- volving a US team to originate out of Cuba since the 2008 US vs. Cuba FIFA World Cup qualifier and it is also the first one to be pro- duced in high definition. In a first-of-its-kind arrangement, ONE World Sports will partner with Havana-based RTV Comercial for the mobile production fa- cilities, logistics support, crew and transmis- sion.

"When President Obama recently an- nounced steps toward full diplomacy with Cuba, his goal was 'to create more opportuni- ties for the American and Cuban people and

begin a new chapter among the nations of the Americas,'" said Joel Feld, ONE World Sports executive vice president, programming and production. "By televising this game and part- nering with the great people from RTV Com- ercial and Televisión Cubana, ONE World Sports will write the first chapter on sports." JP Dellacamera and former Cosmos goal- keeper and current ONE World Sports com- mentator Shep Messing will call the game from ONE World Sports' Stamford, CT, broadcast center, with ONE World Sports announcer Ed Cohen reporting live on-site from Havana. As part of the production, the network is also sending producers and technical crew to cover the game and capture the sights and sounds of Havana for the television network and its digital platforms. The Cosmos and the Cuba national team first announced plans for the June event in March. The Cosmos will be the first US pro- fessional soccer franchise to play in Cuba since the Chicago Sting visited in 1978, and the first US professional sports team to visit there since the Baltimore Orioles played the Cuban na- tional baseball team in an exhibition game in Havana in 1999.

BB King is dead

B B King, the American guitarist and singer, widely regarded as "The King of the Blues", has died at age 89.

King, known for his hits My Lucille, Sweet Little Angel and Rock Me Baby, died in his sleep in Las Vegas. Born in Mississippi, King began performing in the 1940s, going on to influence a generation of musicians and work with Eric Clapton and U2. Once ranked as the third greatest guitarist of all time, he had been suffering ill health in recent months. He was recently taken to hospital with a diabetes-related illness. A former farmhand, King was awarded his 15th Grammy award in 2009 for his album One Kind Favor. He was also inducted into both the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone magazine placed him behind only Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman in its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.

his scheduled January 2019 release from prison, the U.S At- torney's Office said recently in announcing the settlement, which was approved by U.S District Judge James S. Moody Jr. earlier this week. Nearly two years ago, Moody threw out a 2011 conviction on the gun count after finding that a juror had inappropriately researched a legal theory relating to the charge. Banton wanted the other verdicts tossed, too, but recently lost an appeal, returning the matter to Tampa. Moody has asked a special prosecutor to explore whether a contempt charge is warranted. He is expected to be updated on the matter next week. Banton is currently held at McRae Correctional Facility in Georgia.

Of Conference Politrics and the Jamaican Diaspora

Of Conference Politrics and the Jamaican Diaspora By Audrey Campbell irieaubrey@gmail.com M y fellow

By Audrey Campbell irieaubrey@gmail.com

M y fellow Diasporians, I think the initial election results in Guyana are holding

up, giving the APNU/AFC coalition party the mandate to now form the new government, a first in 22 years. I am also to understand that the PPP/Civic party that formed the government these past 22 years, is not giving in without a

fight, citing massive voter irregularities and fraud, countrywide, and sparking calls for re- counts and even demanding the arrest of one opposition candidate, who reportedly used his social media account to post 'exit polls' re-

sults, favoring his opposition coalition party. See, we are not the only ones who know what it means to vote early and often ! So, international observer missions aside, Guyana might need some divine intervention, there. Please keep them in your prayers. And, speaking about prayer and divine intervention, that is the route being taken by the planners of the 6th Biennial Jamaica Di- aspora Conference. I can just hear you

going

conference, AGAIN! So

what else is new? Well, trying to understand who and what drives the agenda, I now know that the home- coming is starting a day earlier, to accommo- date what some are calling a powerful prayer prelude, and are calling for a spiritual re- newal.

conference,

It is interesting to note that since 2005, a

movement calling itself the Jamaica Diaspora Day of Prayer and Fasting - JDOP - and head- quartered in Brooklyn, NY, has been spear- heading a prayer initiative to benefit the island nation. Conceptualized by a coalition of Ja- maican clergymen in the fair city, the move- ment continues to reach out across states, countries and continents, with messages of

hope and healing through a spiritual awaken- ing.

I know there used to be a faith-based

sub-set of the Jamaica Diaspora Advisory Board for the NE/USA, and that such a dy- namic may still exist but the incongruence of it all is what is baffling! Mind you, a number of churches in the USA, Canada and the UK, have joined the prayer movement, citing the relevance now, more than ever, of the high incidences of crime and corruption that is eating away at the moral fabric of the society. The principals who continue to drive the prayer agenda from their New York City base, are most familiar with the Jamaican terrain and so are undaunted by the challenges at this time. And like true 'Men of the Cloth' - still don't know what that means - know that there is strength in numbers. And so, what has largely been a secret for the past 10 years, could be seeing the light of day in Montego Bay through the participa- tion of the JDOP. Saturday (Adventists) and Sunday (Protestants, Christians, etc. al), June 13 and 14, could change the way Jamaicans overseas, see their island home, if even for four more days. I did not say years!

Make it another blessed day, folks. That's today's conversation. You have the last word. Share your thoughts.

T hree generations of the women in the Wright family all dream of leaving their

home in a small Jamaican town, but each woman encounters obstacles and matters of the heart that keep her from living the life she wants. In varying ways, Somerset Grove ex- plores inter-generational dissonance and its ability to overwhelm the individual will. Beginning in the winter of 1967, Somer- set Grove by Dionne Peart is the story of An- gelique, Ruby and Carmen. Traveling between the tropical heat of Jamaica and the cold

promise of Canada Somerset Groove is an emotional and honest look at falling in love at a young age and how it can shape the narrative of an entire family history. Ruby, Angelique and Carmen - three gen- erations of the Wright family play their roles with ease and assurance - all locked stepped

in a psychological maze that deftly conceals personal angst and self-loathing. Angelique, strong willed and adventur- ous, chooses between her daughter and oppor- tunity as she contemplates leaving Carmen behind to move to Canada to pursue a career and bigger life. After experiencing heartbreak, proud matriarch Ruby is determined to see that no one ever has a reason to look down on her or her family, even if it means alienating the ones she loves. A young Carmen is torn between feelings of resentment and longing, as she strives to be independent while trying to build a relation- ship with her distant mother. At the right junc- tures, key questions are raised. Will Angelique's love interest leave upon hearing that she is married? Will Carmen fi- nally see her father, Clifton, as she waits and waits for his return? What secret is hidden in- side the mansion that houses the influential Chambers family? The lives of Ruby, Angelique and Car- men mirror each other. They are intertwined leaving little air for personal growth. Peart's characters crave validation through the

growth. Peart's characters crave validation through the Dionne Peart (Dawn Michelle) chimera of fancy houses,

Dionne Peart (Dawn Michelle)

chimera of fancy houses, furniture, homes and social etiquette. Told with alternating points-of-view Somerset Grove shows how the Wright women solider on from generation- to-generation in an effort to move beyond wounds that never had a chance to heal. Readers who enjoy Jamaican author Colin Channer (The Girl with the Golden Shoes) Elise Augstave (The Roving Tree) Lauren (‘Til the Well Runs Dry) and other writers of Caribbean descent will appreciate the flavors and temperatures of Somerset Grove. Dionne L. Peart, a Jamaican descendant, was born in England and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In 2014 Dionne was a top 10 finalist for The DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities FY15 Artist Fellowship Program (AFP). She currently resides in Washington, DC where she practices law.

Final Expenses - The Costs and Alternatives to Being Buried

T here are two truths to talking about your final wishes. The first is that talking about

your final wishes is admittedly dreadful, and nobody wants to think about them. Unfortu- nately though, the second truth is that funerals can be expensive and sometimes unexpected, so not talking about it while you have the ability can be costly to your family in the future. The most recent statistics from the Na- tional Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) show that the average funeral costs around

$8,343.

The cost does not take into account ceme- tery, monument or marker costs, crematory fees (if cremation is selected), or cash-advance items, such as flowers and obituaries.

The following are some of the expenses to be considered:

• The meaning of LIFE: Loan, Income Replace-

ment, Final Expense and Education

• Casket: This will probably be the largest ex- pense of the funeral.

• Embalming: This service isn't always re-

quired, but it’s necessary if there is going to be

a viewing or visitation.

Couple Clashes over Best Way To Handle Pushy Salespeople

Dear Divine Diva:

M y new boyfriend, "Morris," and I

seem to discover good qualities in

each other every time we get together. I think he's wonderful. Recently, though, he said he has noticed something about me that he considers rude. At the mall, I have always been irri- tated by sales people who practically block your way to sample their product. I ignore these pushy merchants because they usu- ally won't take no for an answer, even if I attempt to say, "No, thank you Morris thinks I'm being impolite, so he's the one who ends up being detained, trying to be kind, while I wait for him to finish apolo- gizing for not wanting their product. I don't feel my way of handling this is rude. I have told Morris he doesn't have to please everyone.

-Not Rude In New York

Dear Not Rude:

I agree with your boyfriend that to ignore someone is rude. However, rather than ig- nore these salespeople, a firm "Not inter- ested" should be sufficient. And if the person persists, keep walking

Girl with abusive home life Should try to help herself

Dear Divine Diva:

I 'm dating a 16-year-old girl who was se- riously physically abused in the past. She

and her mom had to move away for a while, but have now been told by Depart- ment of Children and Family Services that it's safe for them to move back with her fa- ther, who abused her. After seeing what goes on in that house and hearing her describe how they treat her, I think the physical abuse has changed to mental and emotional abuse. I'm not sure what to do because I'm 18 and its "illegal" that we are dating. It scares me that they can use this against me. -What To Do?

Dear What To Do:

You are not in a position to do anything yourself. If you try to get help for your girl- friend, her parents could create problems for you that would last a lifetime. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't encourage the girl to help herself by talking to a coun- selor, a trusted teacher or a clergyperson about the difficulties she's experiencing at home. If she does, they are mandated by law to report abuse. And this is a family that's already been in the system. -Always Divine Diva

HEALTH AND NUTRITION

Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease

A ccording to the American Heart Association, obesity is a major in-

dependent risk factor for heart disease. Atherosclerosis is 10 times more common in obese people compared to people of normal weight. According to the Nurses Health Study involving 115,886 healthy women, BMI was clearly related to CVD. For women with a BMI = 29, the relative risk of non-fatal MI and fatal CAD was over 300% higher than for women with BMI = 21. It’s even worse for the morbidly obese. For example, mortality due to CVD is estimated to be almost 90% higher in those with severe obesity.

Excess weight in childhood and adolescence has been found to predict being overweight in adults. Overweight children, aged 10 to 14, with at least one overweight or obese parent, were reported to have a 79% likelihood of being overweight as adults. Pediatricians and childhood obesity researchers are reporting more frequent cases of obesity-related diseases such as TIIDM, asthma and HTN that once were considered adult conditions.

Business Networking Tips

P reparing yourself for busi- ness networking events is

easier said than done. Many peo- ple completely misunderstand the point of networking events

and have little idea why they are attending them apart from hunt- ing for business, or what they should be doing in order to en- hance their credibility at the events.

• Working the room is exactly as it sounds. Work the crowd, whether individually or as

groups, and produce results through finding good contacts and opportunities. You do this by spending your time interacting; talking with people, listening to people and answering any ques- tions people may have about your industry or your business.

• Likewise, ask them questions

about their business and their in- dustry. Make the topic of conver-

sation about them as this is

smarter and more strategic to networking then talking about

yourself the entire conversation. There are different reasons why people attend business net- working events. Some attend so that they can meet specific peo-

ple. Others take part to meet peo- ple who are in the same industry as they are, and some people at- tend to meet potential clients. • However, remember that a net- working event is not a hunting ground and if you go in with the

attitude ‘let me sell my services to see how much business I can pick up’ then you won’t get very far.

• There are also people who at-

tend networking events not only

for business, but to identify with other people and see where so- cialising will lead.

• Possibly to make new friends,

to see if there is a potential job vacancy at other businesses or the opposite, to recruit or head- hunt brilliant candidates to join your team.

• Whatever the reason for attend-

ing a networking event, you must prepare yourself so that you

will produce the positive results that you seek.

• Give yourself a few minutes to

tap into the right mindset. To do this, focus on your goals. You are going out there to connect with new people. You want to leave those new people with a good,

Mommy Takes Drugs, Am I To Blame?

U nfortunately, too many children today are facing the hardship of liv-

ing with addictive parents. This challeng- ing environment hinders their opportunities for a happy and successful life. What makes this sad is that the chil- dren blame themselves.
