Message from the Minister for Education, Honourable Juliana O’Connor Connolly on World Teachers’ Day, 5 October 2018

As Minister for Education, Youth, Sports, Agriculture, and Lands, I am cognisant of how imperative teachers are in every one of the subject areas I oversee.  Without teachers, there would be no other professions.  Every industry needs a teacher and today we pause globally to celebrate World Teachers’ Day 2018 and appreciate the educators’ contributions!

As a government, we want to recognise the intricate role teachers play in the advancement of our society. Educators help develop whole beings and make an enormous impact on individuals’ lives daily.

UNESCO reminds us that this also marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) that recognizes education as a key fundamental right and establishes an entitlement to free compulsory education, ensuring inclusive and equitable access for all children.

This year’s global theme is the “The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher” and was chosen to highlight that without qualified teachers, education for all cannot be achieved. Even today, a continuing challenge worldwide is the shortage of teachers, and Caymanian teachers make a minority of our country’s teaching population.

Teaching is a most honourable vocation; and our country needs to work together to elevate the status of this noble profession. Our youth should be encouraged, supported, and praised when showing a keen desire for education. It has been said that, “It is noble to teach oneself, but still nobler to teach others.”

As a country, we all have a stake to play in the education system. I applaud all the educators and all who work within our education system for taking a vested interest in the success of our country.

Jesus, Himself, was a teacher, of the 90 times Jesus was addressed directly in the gospels; 60 times he was called Teacher. Every educator today should feel an immense sense of pride to be part of a select group of individuals who share their God-given talents and impart the insight needed to develop children in a way that cultivates a passion for life-long learning.

On behalf of the Cayman Islands Government and my Ministry team, thank you today and always.

Have a Blessed World Teachers’ Day.

Honourable Juliana O’Connor-Connolly, JP

Staffing and job seeking is broken..expert source on how the blockchain can fix it.

The staffing industry is broken.

Talent is not easy to find because the job boards are full of fake resumes and those who are dishonest about their experience.

It is harder and harder for a company to find the best talent and talent to find the best company. One group of 4 recruiters has created a solution to fixing this broken system, by creating a company called

BHIRED.

BHIRED uses blockchain and AI to show transparency and weed out those who are not real. BHIRED will make the job/talent search easier, it will save time and money, and it will also change the way we search for jobs and for jobs to find employees.

Cayman Islands; DCI Reminds Tobacco Licence Holders to Renew

From The Cayman Islands Department of Commerce and Investment

Tobacco licence holders are reminded of the 5 pm Thursday, 1 November 2018 deadline to apply for their annual licence renewals.

Annual registration renewal fees are CI$500 for a retailer, CI$750 for a cigar bar and CI$5,000 for a wholesale distributor.

Persons in must submit their applications at the Business Licensing Counter, located on the first floor of the Government Administration Building. Applicants must provide a current trade and business licence certificate and written notification of changes made since the last registration, such as the dealer’s contact details, business location, ownership and trade of products information.

For persons in the Sister Islands, applications must be submitted to DCI Senior Licensing Officer, Mrs. Lolita Bodden-Arch, in the Bodden and Bodden building on Cayman Brac.

Licensees are reminded that applications submitted between 2 November 2018 and 31 December 2018 will attract a late charge fee that is 50% higher than the regular renewal rate.

There’s always something happening…

This October, Camana Bay is hosting activities and events to celebrate and encourage positive health, both mental and physical, at every age. Start off the month by showing your support for a good cause with the Anti-Bullying Fair, presented by the Family Resource Centre and Hurley’s Media on Saturday, Oct. 6. Children will be encouraged to showcase their creative work to raise awareness of the social effects of bullying in school and all its forms. Families are also encouraged to stay fit for a cause by taking part in the Mental Health Walk and Talk, presented by the Alex Panton Foundation on Wednesday, Oct. 10, and the Save Our Youth (SOY) Monster Dash on Saturday, Oct. 20. October is marked globally as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and everyone is invited to participate in the annual Pilates for Pink, run by ENERGY Essential Fitness.

Shoppers’ Night Out is back this year, happening on Thursday, Oct. 18 with a night of special offers and promotions for participating shops and restaurants in Camana Bay. Shopper will enjoy music, food, refreshments and chances to win raffle prizes all night long! Late-Night Shopping at Camana Bay will kick off the same night, with shops staying open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays from Oct. 18 until the holiday season ends, making it easier than ever to sneak in those after-work errands and pick up those gifts and supplies for the weekend.
