Are we moving towards legalizing it?

Could personal use possibly to become more common? 

 

What will this mean for Jamaica’s development?

 

Will this help us improve our economic standing?

 

A few questions to be considered with the potential future of Marijuana. As Phillip Paulwell believes 

“it is my view that the House, having adopted the motion for the decriminalisation of small amounts of marijuana, I believe that it will be enacted some time this year”

 

Could this be one step toward Jamaica legalizing official use, selling and buying of marijuana? Could this lead to an increase in crime or maybe eve a decrease in crime? What will Jamaican nationals think?

J-can’s desperate for better health?

Residents of Coley Mountain and surrounding communities in north-west Manchester turned out in their hundreds recently to receive free medical services from a team of American volunteers.

 

Hundreds of people lined up at Coley Mountain Primary School for free medical services from a team of American volunteers. The grateful community, adult and child gained more that words could express from this group of volunteers. With most of the residents struggling in the hard economic times this well needed visit seemed to be a ray of hope to the individuals of the community. Who knows maybe one of these children that were examined could become a doctor one day and create a cure for a disease. The future rests within our people and poverty only suppresses them. We thank these volunteers for their service to our fellow people and hope that they continue to help and change lives.

It’s a Jammin’ Celebration!!

“Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

There was a major celebration yesterday commemorating Bob Marley. Kicking off with drumming session at his former home with the Legend’s family present at the celebration. Marley’s children and grandchildren cutting his birthday cake. Providing guided tours to the public, picture viewings and portraits of the legend for tourists and reminiscent Jamaicans to view. The day dedicated to the Big man himself. Along with the celebration at his home radio stations also bestowed tribute to him during the day. Right across the island numerous celebrations were taking place in remembrance of this man who has given so much to Jamaica. 

 

Another event to look out for which will take place today is the Wake Up and Live concert at the National Stadium car park which will be hosted by Digicel. We live with this memory of a legend forever in out hearts.

New direction for Animation?

 

“We have the potential to become the next India,” says Dianne Wan, replete with animated gestures and packed with conviction.

Wan, instructor of animation at the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication (CARIMAC) at the University of the West Indies (UWI), is not referring to Jamaica becoming the next ‘curry capital’ of the world, but the hub of animation.

See,there are improvements in technology that can be seen here in Jamaica. We may be underdeveloped in many ways be we are strong at heart. It was noted previously that many high school graduates are looking to study abroad due to the inexperience and lack of technology in certain areas. Slowly but surely Jamaica is on the right track.

 

 

With this development more jobs will be created and  Jamaica will see greater creativity spread throughout Jamaica. Seeing individuals thinking in different and more innovative ways. Using animation to change Jamaica and soon the rest of the world. Making their art come to life. Giving these young people jobs that they will enjoy doing and will excel at.

 

All this aims towards creating a wider expanse of courses offered to stop some students from relying on colleges abroad to provide them with a course that is not offered down here. Can this potentially reduce migration?
