JAMAICA: Situation Update
The proposition that the Dudus flare up in Tivoli Gardens is a result of the West trying to manipulate a situation where they can steal all of Jamaica’s unannounced oil reserves touched a nerve, and the article that discussed such a possibility ‘Dudus: It’s Not About Cocaine, It’s About Oil’ went viral.  Only the opening poem was posted on a single message board and a mystical power took over, leading to possibly a million readers in three days. The reality of the oil situation in the Caribbean is probably much worse than originally considered.  If you have paranoid eyes, it appears as though the International Monetary Fund ... market research, surveys and trends

EDITORIAL - Mr Matalon's challenge
We note last week's election of Mr Joseph M. Matalon for a second term as president of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) and endorse the confidence reposed in him by the members of the organisation. For, as was noted by Mr Matalon's colleagues, the past year was challenging and demanding on the PSOJ and, by extension, its president. Mr Matalon, however, provided effective leadership to the private sector and helped to articulate a vision for achieving what we all hope for Jamaica: making the country as the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business. Indeed, the PSOJ, and the private ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Current International Monetary System
          Following the collapse of the Bretton woods system on August 15, 1971, the EEC countries agreed to maintain stable exchange rates by preventing exchange fluctuations of more than 2.25%. This arrangement was called "European snake in the tunnel" because the community currencies floated as a group against outside currencies such as the dollar.

QUESTION: The last 2 years I've been searching and reading and praying to understand the uncomfortable feeling that I've been struggling with for more than 5 years within the SDA church.  I was born almost on the church steps, my father was a minister of the 'gospel' (albeit in an independent ministry#, and my mom was the antithesis of the preacher's wife.  We grew up living a lifestyle that has been so ingrained in my life that it is hard to believe or think anything else.  How do I know what is really the truth about Sabbath keeping, tithing, salvation, and even the judgment?  The ...
