RCIPS Warns All Residents to Avoid Water-Related Activities This Weekend, 9-10 September

Due to the effects of Hurricane Irma the sea conditions around the islands are expected to deteriorate dramatically beginning tomorrow.  The RCIPS strenuously warns all residents against ANY water-related activities, whether that be boating, surfing, kite-surfing, snorkeling, diving or swimming.  Rough seas and strong currents are expected, and any activity on the water carries great risk.

“Rough weather and high waves have attracted people to the shoreline in the past, especially thrill seekers” said Brad Ebanks, Acting Superintendent of Specialist Operations, “and sadly we have had incidents where people’s lives were put in danger.  We ask you do not risk your life and the lives of those who may try to save you.”

 

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 or [email protected].

“Sea swims a great activity to participate with family and friends from all age groups and help you stay active and fit. If you can swim, but haven’t entered a sea swim before, the Foster’s Sea Swim is an excellent event for first timers,” said a CIASA spokesperson.

Trump Defends His DACA Move, Hits Obama

U.S. President Donald Trump, seen in this file photo, boasted of the strength of his country’s nuclear arsenal and voiced hope on Aug. 9, 2017, that it will not need to be used, a day after his “fire and fury” warning to North Korea. (Kyodo)

From Newsmax

President Donald Trump defended his decision to rescind a program for immigrant children brought into the United States illegally as necessary to safeguard the rule of law in the country.

“I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws,” Trump said in a statement.

Trump did not make the announcement about his decision, leaving that instead to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump said former President Barack Obama bypassed Congress to set up the DACA program in 2012. “There can be no path to principled immigration reform if the executive branch is able to rewrite or nullify federal laws at will.”

Caribbean nation reviews Springfield lab’s herpes test

The Associated Press From The Sacramento Bee

SPRINGFIELD, ILL.

A health official of a Caribbean nation is investigating a test on a genital herpes vaccine conducted by a Springfield-based company.

Dr. Hazel Laws is chief medical officer of the nation of St. Kitts and Nevis. She confirmed to The (Springfield) State Journal-Register that she is conducting a review of the test by Rational Vaccines.

The Ministry of Health says Rational Vaccines did not obtain the needed approval from an institutional review board prior to the trial in the two-island nation about 200 miles southeast of Puerto Rico. Such third-party panels review tests for patient safety.

Rational Vaccines CEO Agustin Fernandez III says the company will cooperate.

Female patient with brain injury raped at hospital

By Tina Moore and Max Jaeger From New York Post

A female patient with a serious brain injury was raped at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, police sources said Sunday.

A registered nurse at the hospital was checking on the 32-year-old patient around 7:45 p.m. Friday when she walked in on Keith Nembhard, 37, having sex with the incapacitated woman, police said.

The victim’s doctor told cops that the woman had a brain injury that rendered her incapable of consenting to sex, according to sources.

Nembhard, who knew the victim, was apprehended, arrested and charged with rape in the second degree, sources said.

NEW YORK (AP) — One of the largest celebrations of Caribbean culture in the U.S. is being held in Brooklyn amid ramped-up security.

Thousands of revelers, including musicians, dancers and costumed troupes, gathered Monday for the morning J’ouvert (joo-VAY’) celebration and the afternoon Caribbean Carnival parade.

There had been talk of canceling this year’s party because of past violence.

Instead, officials tightened security and moved the starting time from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. Officers were patting down revelers, vendors and residents hours before that.

Some people complained of long delays getting into the festival area. Others refused to let the hassles get in the way of a good time.

Online video showed one woman dancing with her arms outstretched as an officer ran a hand-held metal detector over her.

Termination and de-registration of Cayman regulated funds: consider action now to reduce 2018 fees

From Harneys

Managers of Cayman Islands regulated funds who are reviewing whether to wind any funds down before the end of 2017 may want to act promptly to avoid or reduce the annual 2018 Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) fees and related costs. Regulated funds which file their de-registration documents with CIMA before 31 December 2017 will not be liable to pay the 2018 CIMA fees, currently US$4,268 for a regulated feeder fund and US$3,048 for a regulated master fund. Funds may also save related service provider fees, including annual audit fees, once they have de-registered.

Holness calls for deeper ties between the Caribbean and Latin America

From RJR News

During first official visit to Chile on Wednesday, Prime Minister Andrew Holness called for deeper ties between Caribbean and Latin American countries.

In delivering the keynote address at the headquarters of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, Mr. Holness also gave his backing to the Caribbean debt relief proposal.

The prime minister said he is convinced that the path to prosperity must be forged through expanded trade and investment as well as deeper regional co-operation among countries.

Mr. Holness said Jamaica supports and encourages the proposal, which was first presented in late 2015.

The debt relief initiative contemplates the creation of a regional resilience fund to finance measures for climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Celebrity cancels dive excursions at Grand Cayman

Could Caribbean lionfish be a hybrid superfish?

By Sam Helmy -From Deep Blue

The latest research from the University of Hawaii and Kochi University in Japan shows that Lionfish — which have been a blight on the Caribbean ecosystem since their introduction 20 years ago — may in fact be a hybrid superfish.

This latest revelation will go a long way to explain their devastating success in colonising reefs and spreading across the western Atlantic.

According to Hakai Magazine, up until now it was thought that most species in the Caribbean were either the Common Lionfish or the Red Lionfish, which are both Indo-Pacific species. The vast majority of the intruders where thought to be Red Lionfish.

The latest research, however, shows that apparently the Red Lionfish is actually not a distinct species at all, but is a hybrid between the Russell Lionfish from the Pacific, and the Common Lionfish from the Indian Ocean.
