History of the Bahamas

Bahamas Flag National Flag Nation Country

On July 10, 1973, the Islands of the Bahamas, became an independent nation, while, also, remaining, as part of the British Commonwealth. The nation started, with limited finances, etc, and small infrastructure. But it also, fortunately, started with a focus, vision, goals, priorities, and somewhat, visionary leadership. Sir Lynden Pindling was the George Washington, of the country, and served as Prime Minister, for its first 25 years, of its existence. In the early 1980’s, when I was involved in operating and managing, a tourism business, focused on the Bahamas, I had the joy of meeting, for the first time, this amazing individual. We had several conversations over the following, nearly – two years, and I developed a far better understanding of what our Founding Fathers, and those of most nations, must have, to some degree, underwent. There were certain decisions made from the start, which directed the Bahamas, into the future.

1. Mission and vision of Creator: Since there are limited natural resources, and the ability to compete, in terms of exporting goods, is restricted. Mr. Pindling decided, the emphasis should be on education, employment, banking, pegging currency/ money, and tourism. This meant focusing on friendliness, service, and bringing tourists, to come back, repeatedly. There were lots of challenges, but when one observes, the amount of amazing hotels, restaurants, shops, etc, and the short – life of the nation, is inspiring!

2. How mistakes/ challenges are handled: Things didn’t always go, as easily, as the government expected. In the mid – 1980’s, the Cable Beach Hotel, and then, Crystal Palace, were assembled, as well as several other major projects, but lots of these, were adversely impacted, by the downturn in the world economy. As opposed to give – up, or move, negatively, they faced the challenges, admitted there were challenges and issues, but continued, in a focused way, towards a better future. When the largest project, ever intended, for the Caribbean region, was planned, and started, about a decade ago, hopes were high, but the original developer faced economic difficulties, there were many legal battles, etc, but finally, the $4.5 billion, Baha Mar Resort opened, and afterwards, visiting last week, exceeded anyone’s expectations!

3. Encourage foreign investment: When the Bahamas, became a country, one of the principal objectives, was to guarantee qualified Bahamian workers, received the majority of the jobs, in any project, etc.. That country recognized, the need to promote foreign investment and investors, but, to also, protect taxpayers. Major projects like the Atlantis, the Towne, the Baha Mar, and many others, followed these principles. Many banks and nations, have a significant economic presence on those Islands, including: China; the United States; Canada; United Kingdom; etc..

4. Infrastructure needs: Roads are designed, and enhanced, constantly, throughout the nation’s history! In a country, representing a variety of races, and nationalities/ ethnicities, there is a relevantly low amount of racial biases, etc..

5. Overcome obstacles: This nation has proceeded, and overcome many obstacles, because it proceeds, with an attitude and focus, o challenges, rather than problems!

If the Bahamas, in its brief history, can be, where it is, and, although, still having to confront many future challenges, shouldn’t all of us learn some courses? I’ve seen many changes in the nearly 40 years, I have seen, and have to admit, I am motivated by the progress, to date!

Are laser guns here?

Alien Blaster Defense Futurism Gun Hero La

Ronald Reagan was all about promoting the idea of Star Wars laser weapons with the capacity to shoot down incoming ICBM weapons, Soviet Bombers or anything else that was deemed a threat. The Space Race and Cold War was in full blossom and coming to an end, mainly because of the USSR running out of money and efficiently imploding trying to keep up. Back then, we didn’t have laser weapons, but desired them, much was a bluff, but shortly, these laser weapon systems will be everywhere and used for all sorts of uses. Let us talk shall we?

Not long ago, I was interviewed about the future of advanced laser weapon systems. Daniel the interviewer asks;”Do you think we shall see laser weapons? Why?”

Yes, and in the US we’re really already there, now onto the challenge of miniaturization. Perhaps building a little laser system the size of a small refrigerator to fit in the bomb bay of an F-35 or F-22 and I have no doubt that will happen within 5-10 years, great for our allies who purchase our stealthy F-35, but awful for any and all adversaries. We’re working on a smaller system mounted on truck and Humvee, we have proven concept.

In the USA we also have boat mounted laser weapons devices for protection also. In the near future perhaps a hand-held device, no not like a Star Trek Phaser, but more like a larger version of an assault rifle. There are still challenges with these types of weapons like air-density and the sort of laser in airborne applications. In addition, the power needed, particularly in the event of man-portable units. Another challenge is that the time required on goal for a good kill when using lasers to defend against swarm attack.

Laser weapons don’t make sense for every niche in the battlespace or future battlespaces, but they’re viable nevertheless. It could be the science fiction loving minds of investigators or our passion for Star Wars which continues to guarantee the financing for such things. Cash strapped nations should consider costs of these systems, and they will.

The US has many allies who would love to have those systems, and BAE and many others are working on systems of their own now. The Russians have a research program too, and the Chinese too, yes, much of it is borrowed tech, got to love the spy world and cyber hackers – it seems nowadays Top Secret = 1 Month, and then there’s WikiLeaks, you know how it is?

Fortunately, these systems are tough to engineer, tough to produce, and hard to get right – but people are the smartest of the planet’s primates, and every nation with an advanced military has rounded up their best 150 IQ, Human+ scientists to work on such projects. For now however, it’s a matter of getting the most bang (zap) for the buck.

Are you ready for Armageddon?

Nuclear Atom Bomb Atomic Science War Radio

This week Pakistan declared that if we, the U.S. ever pulled a stunt like the one we pulled the week before, we would be in big trouble. They would respond with ‘Total Force’. What’s that mean? Pakistani D-Day on a beach south of Los Angeles? Probably not. I guess they’re referencing their nuclear aresenal. They probably don’t have a delivery system that could drop Nuclear-grade Weapons directly on top of us, but maybe they do. Maybe? You really can never tell. Especially if someone’s thinking outside the box.

I think a good deal of us think about that. Notably we children of the bomb. Children who grew up under the threat of an impending Soviet First Strike. Everything doesn’t get murdered outright. In reality plenty of stuff survives. Major metropolitan areas might be destroyed but there is a lot of an in-between. People have thought about this so much that there are games such as Fallout and Metro 2033 that envision the big what if of life after Nuclear War. Ther’s a genre of fiction called Post Apocalyptic Fiction, or PA fiction. You’ll find it right next to the zombie books.

I think one thing everyone can agree on in this scenario is that society, national and international, will collapse for awhile. It’s happened before. Consider the Dark Ages. Most do not expect much beyond the strongest i.e. motorcycle gang, local warlord types keeping control over a limited area the size of say a town. Society collapses pretty fast when people have firearms and resources are scarce. Especially when there’s no recognized authority figure to enforce social contracts you are probably looking at some hard times what with the motorcycle gang and all.

So let’s say your one of the few who create it. You’re far enough away from the devastation which you may collect some supplies and endure. But what skills do you need? I have a friend who spends his entire life training for the apocalypse. He is constantly teaching himself new skills and knowledge so he will actually be prepared in case of. . .whatever. He is not crazy. In fact it’s really nothing more than his own syllabus as he continues to improve himself post-college. It is the way he spends his weekends.

And perhaps it’s not so startling. Society goes sideways pretty fast. When it is a flood. An earthquake. The government can not pay its bills. Even when you’re on vacation and the country you are staying in collapses economically. These skills can come in handy.

A list of things you may want to start learning. Danger abounds. Stuff happens. Things go sideways.

Learn how to purify water. Get comfortable with knowing how to find and identify drinkable water. Chances are the stores will be looted and vending machines operate on power. But there’s a crowbar for it.
Learn to shoot a gun. Yes for self defense. Guns are complex pieces of equipment. From the security to the cleaning and maintenance aspect, guns can be complicated. Not all ammunition matches all firearms. Some guns perform specific actions. Taking a basic gun safety class is a skill even those who oppose firearms should consider. The reality is, due to their very nature, firearms need a healthy amount of respect. Plus you may want to eat something.
Which brings us to another skill. Field dressing an animal. Sure you can take an animal and eat it. However, you may make yourself sick. An animal has to be field dressed before it could be skinned and then prepared for dinner. What’s field dressing? It mainly involves removing the bladder and some other parts so the meat does not get infected with waste and feces. Weird huh? Basic first aid. A course in basic first aid is most likely great no matter what. A friend may not go into shock as soon as they see downtown being burned to the ground, but they might have a heart attack in a restaurant or during a struggle. Understanding CPR and other first aid skills is likely handy now or following the collapse of society. Here you might want to have a craft. Being handy at a craft based skill generally allows a certain amount of familiarity at working with your hands and problem solving. Plus if society does begin to rebuild your job at writing code might not be there for the next hundred years. Understanding how to bake or make leather goods is something people will exchange goods with you . See they were right in camp when you learned to make leather wallets!
There are quite a few different skills you may learn. The majority of them end up being fun and you will probably never ever need to use them in an emergency, but they’re good to have. You can justify learning how to sail and other adventure skills in the interest of being ready.

I have thought about this subject and survival skills for a long time. I loved the survival aspects of Ernest Hemingway’s THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA and I wanted to tell that story but set against a nuclear apocalypse. In the course of my search for the novel I learned about how to live in the desert, flora an fauna of the South West and how to create traps. Look at making this the year you attempt to learn at least one ability you might need if everything goes Ka-Boom.

Your Mind

Meditation, Spiritual, Yoga, Meditating

How does the head get programmed in the first place?

The events in our early years have the greatest influence over us in many instances. If we received powerful ideas which came in a time when we did not have the capacity to critically analyse what we were being told, we would have accepted the ideas without question.

Our grandparents have brought their heritage into our lives in some way.

Powerful beliefs based on real life experience will have made their way into our subconscious mind. This becomes a filter for the subconscious mind. However, we often still carry old, outdated ideas about money, life, work and relationships with us from our youth.

If our parents struggled financially, for instance, there’s a powerful change that we developed some negative ideas around money. This can become a belief and hold us back in life when we want to move forwards. If we have picked up some unwanted emotional baggage around finances, you can bet that they will be holding you back from making more money.

But how do we change these ideas, if they’re rooted in our subconscious mind, from view? 1 answer is to begin observing how you speak and think about the topic you are attempting to change in your lifetime. What do you say about money, work and yourself? Your thoughts around money will stem out of your beliefs about money. In case you have a negative impression from your childhood around money, you are probably creating a blockage. To change this, you can track it out and stop giving it more energy.

Use an affirmation to use in place of your negative impression. By way of example, if your rhetoric about money is something like”You must work hard for money”, you can replace it for”money comes easily and often”. By repeating mantras which are contrary to your old beliefs, you can loosen the impact of your old beliefs and replace them with the new ones.

Think about how often you have repeated to yourself or someone that your previous view on money or about what you need to do to earn it. Through the years, this becomes a belief that you cling to as if your life depended upon it. However, what if it was a lie? Creating a new belief will take a while. You need to counteract your old belief by repeating your new affirmation again and again.

You can also use meditation to understand how to quieten your mind. This can have a two fold benefit. Firstly it is possible to notice your inner dialogue much better. By watching your mind, you can see precisely how you continually talk to yourself. This inner dialogue feeds into your subconscious mind and generates the cornerstones of your belief system over time. Listen to what you say carefully if you want to change things in your life.

Your self image too, is responsible for many of your thoughts about what life offers you. Self image is a powerful focus for your unconscious mind. It controls how you think about yourself. If you consciously want something, but you don’t believe it is possible, your unconscious belief will prevail.

Or, in the event that you consciously want something but don’t believe you are worth it, you’ll discover ways to sabotage your conscious efforts to prove yourself right. Then, you’ll justify not achieving your desired outcome in some way which agrees with your self image and prevailing mental attitudes.

This is the reason why reprogramming the subconscious mind can be so strong. Your subconscious mind has a large part to play in your life’s decisions and results. By reprogramming your subconscious mind, you can change things from within far more quickly and easily, than by struggling against a negative belief system and only acting on the’outside’ in the physical and conscious universe.

Are You Angry?

Free stock photo of man, person, face, portrait

Deep within our mind we have triggers that shut down logic and common sense and take over our brains with rage. We have all felt it and sometimes it begins with fear or jealousy. If it’s permitted to intensify, it becomes anger that may lead to the death of others, both or suicide. With many cases of the scenario in recent times it’s important to understand how and why this happens.

The bottom line in many of these cases is revenge. The emotion tripping that is a feeling of loss and feelings of hate towards and punishment for a perpetrator.

In the last month or so in Australia we have seen a grandfather shoot dead his whole family before killing himself. Seven people in all that included his wife, daughter, and four grandchildren. While that has shocked the nation it is followed by a father who murdered his two teenage children before turning the gun on himself.

Both these cases followed custody battles in court where the two men lost out. In the event of the father he joined a shooting club to acquire a license to get guns. That took place weeks or even months beforehand.

In the case of this grandfather there were other signs as he became more violent as the end approached. The court result might have had little to do with his final act but there’s signs of jealousy or fear going out.

The recent shooting of victims in the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, USA, is another case in point. It involved the death of five people but the shooter survived and is in custody. He had a grudge against the business after failing in court to get compensation.

There are many killings which aren’t associated with court outcomes, like when a spouse is killed by their ex or current lover. The reasons aren’t always apparent but most are motivated by jealousy and or fear, particularly if there is a break-down in the connection.

The question is how does one avoid reaching the point of committing murder or being a victim of a killer? Every case is different and each outcome is equally unpredictable. Girls, however, are more vulnerable since they’re the weaker of the two. The answer must, therefore, lie at the signs exhibited.

It’s very likely that one who is planning this outcome has mood swings and other things that point to a change in his or her thinking. While it is not possible to give positive answers the ideal approach is to encourage you to think things through and not act because of the force within that blocks out common sense and logic.

Anxiety and Alcohol

Alkoghol, Narkomaniia

When folks feel depressed, they frequently turn to alcohol to temporarily forget their problems. The same thing happens when people encounter anxiety. However, did you know that experiencing stress, panic attacks and alcohol are related?

Some sufferers turn to alcohol in an effort to self-medicate or to diminish the signs of the disorder. This greatly complicates the person’s life and ability to find appropriate treatment.

Rather, the use of alcohol, while not necessarily a cause for panic attacks, does seem to aggravate them.

Alcohol is a vasodilator, making people feel hot and sweaty. Due to this, alcohol can cause a panic attack in response to increased stimulation, especially for individuals whose panic or anxiety attacks are caused by increased sensitivity to physical stimulation and physiological responses.

Studies have proven that alcohol dependence relates directly to cravings and irritability. These can spark a panic attack. Another study indicates that alcohol use is an important predisposing factor towards being anti-social in children. Alcoholism is associated with dampened activation in brain networks accountable for emotional processing.

People today feel that alcohol initially helps social phobia or panic symptoms. But, with longer term alcohol misuse, it can often aggravate social phobia symptoms and can cause panic disorder to become worse during alcohol intoxication and especially during the alcohol withdrawal syndrome.

Even moderate drinking can lead to recoil anxiety syndromes and sleep disorders. Someone who is experiencing the poisonous effects of alcohol will not gain anything from other therapies or drugs because they do not target the root cause of the symptoms, which is alcoholism.

When the effects of alcohol wear off, the body becomes in a depressed state. This can trigger more frequent attacks. A bunch of these episodes may mean having panic disorder. Panic disorder is called the abrupt and recurring sequences of acute fear along with physical symptoms that may include chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness or abdominal distress.

Too much use of alcohol may be one of the primary reasons of repeated panic attacks. The depressing effect alcohol consumption can cause someone to linger over undesirable emotions and stress. These may bring about their panic attacks.

If one can’t absolutely eliminate alcohol, it’s ideal to decrease alcohol intake. It is also crucial to understand what the relationship is between one’s panic episodes and alcohol consumption. Instead of asking your physician for medications, try to evaluate your habits. Do you constantly drink caffeine? Are you an alcoholic? Are you a chain smoker?

Are you stressed constantly and easily angered? Slowly eliminate one variable after another, so that you may eventually rule our our panic attacks. Avoid coffee, tea, Pest Removal or cola. Stay away from cigarettes and most of all, have a moderate consumption of alcohol.

Bear in mind that there’s a connection between panic attacks and alcohol, so do not be complacent. Stay healthy and look for alternative and natural ways to get rid of your anxiety attacks!

The Human Body

Human Skeleton, Human Body, AnatomyOur bodies require a whole lot of Bee Removal Orlando nutrients to perform the work they have to in order for us to maintain a standard level of health. What are some of those everyday functions?

103, 680 times on average daily.

Our lungs breathe in and out approximately 15 times plus in 1 minute. That’s 900 breaths in 1 hour and about 21,600 breaths daily.

We consume on average 2 moderately sized meals a day which the digestive system must breakdown into usable energy supplies.

Our sensory organs are in continuous use.

We sweat when we exercise.

e have an internal system of hormones that are responsible for several internal functions including cell development, reproductive patterns and cell reproduction.

The skin is the body’s largest organ.

The liver is considered the 2nd largest organ after the skin and weighs approximately 2kg in an adult.

Our bodies are working continuously: day and night. There are an enormous quantity of physiological processes occurring while we are awake and while we sleep. Our diet is the means to supply our bodies with the nutrients it needs for these tasks. A balanced diet is one that includes all of the nutrients you need, that is it includes the right amount of proteins, minerals and vitamins, carbohydrates, enzymes and fiber.

Pollutants, Compounds and Compounds

We also consume quite a large number of pollutants, chemicals and environmental toxins, the so-called non-nutrients that we’re exposed to sometimes on a daily basis. Our bodies have to process these also, as we breathe them in or digest them, the good and the not-so-good. Some examples of possible irritants to the body include:

· Cigarette smoke.

· Bacteria & germs.

· Compounds from make-up, hair products and skin products.

· Food chemicals & preservatives.

· Farm pesticides in the air or in food.

· Artificial growth compounds in plant produce.

· Compounds from medications and chemical solutions.

Finding the Right Balance

Our bodies are working continuously, the internal organs are diverse in function and often complex in procedure. Our diets should contain the nutrients and materials we need to make sure that our bodies perform their activities to supply us with energy and health.

However, it’s not always that simple, there may be other factors that intercept, for example genetic conditions. And it is also true that this is only one equation at the many health formulas that are in existence or that will come into existence. However, it is one which may be user-friendly. It is one that enables each of us to take a look at their particular health and weigh up the toxins we take in with the nutrients we provide to our bodies.

The Health Equation: More Nutrients than Toxins

Providing the body with more nutrients than poisons creates a healthier equation and herein lies a terrific task. Let us compare the nutrients we supply to our bodies as friendly defence-building compounds. It would stand to reason from a point of view of equations, that if we have more healthy compounds than toxins in our bodies, the greater the chances we have of health.

On the other side, toxins are like an enemy into the human body’s defence mechanisms, they invade and behave as unwanted cells. The body’s defence system reacts to toxins, it works hard to deactivate them and then eliminate them. However, what if there are a lot of toxins for the immune system to handle? Then the equilibrium goes out and our health state declines.

Our bodies are a natural strategy and nature provides many varied and terrific food resources, for us to benefit from and for us to learn from also.

Pogo stick fun

Image result for pogo sticks

A shocking statistic is that 80 percent of parents believe their kids are getting enough exercise but actually less than 10% actually do!

This lack of exercise has been caused partly by the increase of the”playstation civilization” which means children simply don’t go out and perform any more. This has caused a major increase in childhood obesity and related illnesses.

The problem can be persuading your kids that exercise is fun and can be appreciated. In actuality, many adults would benefit from being taught this lesson too!

A pogo stick is an exceptional source of exercise and fun.

There’s something about bouncing around on a pogo stick that puts a grin on your face.

As soon as you get good at pogo’ing then you may begin doing tricks like bouncing with one hand or no hands or perhaps with no feet.

The excellent thing about these pogo sticks for children is they are actually quite affordable. The Flybar Foammaster, which is a excellent starter stick can be purchased for under fifty dollars. The benefit of this foam stick for children is that it does not get scratched and the foam reduces any lumps to the legs.

There are a lot more expensive pogo sticks out there which you may purchase as they get into using their pogo stick, but to begin with one of the affordable sticks will be more than sufficient for their needs.

Some parents are concerned about the security of a pogostick but to be honest they are no more dangerous than a bike. If we’re really honest they’re actually safer because you then fall of a pogostick you’ve got more chance of landing on your feet than a bicycle. When you fall off a bicycle usually it lands you resulting in harm.

Naturally, as a parent, you need to ensure that your child is safe in their pogostick so that you will want to purchase them a helmet and perhaps some elbow and knee pads. This will make sure they are safe if they do fall off and land on anything aside from their feet.

Pogo sticks for children are an excellent form of exercise and entertainment. You will be amazed how much your child will appreciate their pogostick.
