The RCIPS FCU is advising the public of a report received yesterday, Wednesday 25 October, that a fake Facebook profile purporting to be the profile of Hon. Tara Rivers, MLA, has been soliciting money from those following the Facebook page.

From SA

Oct. 25, 2017 11:46 AM ET|About: CBS Corporation (CBS)|By: Jason Aycock, SA News Editor

In one of those infrequent changings of the guard, CBS (CBS +0.3%) has named Jeff Glor the next anchor of the CBS Evening News.

He’ll take over later this year, replacing interim anchorman Anthony Mason. Mason had stepped in after six-year anchor Scott Pelley was moved off the broadcast earlier this year.

Glor has spent more than 10 years with CBS News.

Last month, CBS wrapped the TV year in third place among evening news broadcasts: ABC’s (DIS -0.1%) World News Tonight took the top spot with 8.25M average viewers, breaking a 21-year winning streak by NBCs (CMCSA -0.2%) Nightly News, which averaged 8.17M. The CBS Evening News averaged 6.56M viewers.

Antigua-Barbuda minister suspended following arrest in London

From Caribbean News Now

ST JOHN’S, Antigua — The prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, has announced the immediate suspension from the Cabinet of tourism and investment minister, Asot Michael, pending the outcome of his arrest on Monday (23) morning by the Metropolitan Police in London.

Browne is presently in Jordan on his way back to Antigua from Montenegro where he led a government delegation to an international conference on global citizenship.

The prime minister advised that he received news from Antigua and Barbuda’s High Commissioner in London, Karen-Mae Hill, that she had been informed by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office that Michael was arrested on his arrival in England on Monday morning.

“While I have no firm details of the reasons for Mr Michael’s arrest, the arrest itself is sufficient for me to suspend him immediately as a Cabinet member and to relieve him of all his ministerial portfolios until this matter is resolved one way or the other”, Browne said.

The prime minister declared: “I have repeatedly stated that I expect every member of my government to comply with the highest possible standards required of public office, and while Mr Michael might establish his innocence in time, the fact that he has been arrested now, obliges me to relieve him of all government duties.”

“I undertake to release other information regarding Mr Michael’s arrest as it is brought to my attention,” he added.

UPDATE: The government of Antigua and Barbuda has now been advised by Michael’s attorney, James Guthrie, that his client was detained and questioned upon arrival at Gatwick Airport. He has since been released. The government will issue another statement when further information becomes available.

Hurricane Irma Appeal launched by Cayman Islands Red Cross

The Cayman Islands Red Cross (CIRC) is launching its Hurricane Irma appeal in light of the devastation suffered by the Eastern Caribbean islands as the storm continues to wreak havoc throughout the region.

“We really don’t know the extent of the damage as full assessments haven’t been conducted yet, but based on what we have seen and heard Irma has been catastrophic for several nations,” explains CIRC Director Jondo Obi.  “The Anguilla Red Cross has lost its headquarters, and as has now been widely reported the island of Barbuda has basically been declared uninhabitable,” she continues.

“We are still working on establishing contact with our counterparts throughout the region, and those with whom we have reached have stated that they are physically well but emotionally devastated,” adds Mrs. Obi.

The CIRC’s Irma appeal is strictly for monetary donations, and the organisation urges residents *not* to make arrangements to send supplies to the affected areas.

“The arrival of unsolicited donations into a disaster zone is at times referred to as the second disaster,” explains Deputy Director Carolina Ferreira.  “The items that most people would like to donate, like clothing, shoes, household items and toys, are not a priority in the immediate aftermath of a catastrophe, and when they arrive into affected areas they create numerous problems for workers on the ground,”  she explains.

Unsolicited donations are not only difficult and costly to send, but in areas where major ports have been affected and alternative locations are being utilised they become difficult for organisations to access and collect, if they are even made aware of their existence at all.  Furthermore clearing and collecting such goods means diverting personnel and equipment away from more  pressing tasks, like damage assessments.  There is also the issue of sorting and storage, as such widespread devastation means that many buildings have been affected and there is a shortage of space. Lastly, often times the affected population is not in a position to be able to receive these goods at the time when they are sent.

“The Cayman Islands Red Cross is a branch of the British Red Cross, and the funds we collect here go directly to the most affected areas as part of the larger appeal by the British Red Cross and the International Federation,” adds Keith Ford, Disaster Manager for the organisation. “The people of these Eastern Caribbean islands are already going to need a lot of help, but the truth is that Jose is following closely behind a similar path and set to turn into a major hurricane itself. We must help.”

Persons wishing to donate to the Cayman Islands Red Cross Hurricane Irma Caribbean Appeal can do so via direct deposit to Bank of Butterfield Account 1360350540060 or at our Cayman Corporate Centre office on 27 Hospital Road, 1st Floor. For more information, contact 916-3345 ordirector@redcross.org.ky.

November is an exciting month as it eases us into the holiday season with signature events like our Tree Lighting and the beginning of our weekly festivities, from Caribbean and Traditional Santa Photos to our weekly Christmas Moonlight & Movies series!

But first, we have a major milestone to celebrate: we’re 10! It’s time to party, and we are celebrating with a birthday party open to all. Come along for fireworks, fish fry and birthday cake under the stars.

November is also Ocean Conservation Month, and we are recognising this very important cause with themed Moonlight & Movies, a month-long photo exhibit in the Town Centre and themed Story Times in Books & Books, as well as a special premiere at Regal Cinemas of Guy Harvey’s latest documentary This is Their Ocean: Sea of Life.

Warm Regards,
The Camana Bay Marketing Team
