Barbados: An island in the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies. It is chiefly of coral formation with no good harbors and only small streams. It was probably discovered by the Portuguese in the sixteenth century. The name was given by 16th-century Spanish explorers from barbados, the plural for "bearded", with reference to the beard-like leaves or trails of moss on the trees that grew there in abundance. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p116 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p49)Caribbean Region: The area that lies between continental North and South America and comprises the Caribbean Sea, the West Indies, and the adjacent mainland regions of southern Mexico, Central America, Colombia, and Venezuela.Medical Tourism: Travel to another country for the purpose of medical treatment.Weil Disease: A severe form of LEPTOSPIROSIS, usually caused by LEPTOSPIRA INTERROGANS SEROVAR ICTEROHAEMORRHAGIAE and occasionally other serovars. It is transmitted to humans by the rat and is characterized by hemorrhagic and renal symptoms with accompanying JAUNDICE.Landslides: Downslope movements of soil and and/or rock resulting from natural phenomena or man made actions. These can be secondary effects of severe storms, VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS and EARTHQUAKES.Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject.

Refractive errors in a black adult population: the Barbados Eye Study. (1/76)PURPOSE: To describe the prevalence of refractive errors in a black adult population. METHODS: The Barbados Eye Study, a population-based study, included 4709 Barbados-born citizens, or 84% of a random sample, 40 to 84 years of age. Myopia and hyperopia were defined as a spherical equivalent <-0.5 diopters and >+0.5 diopters, respectively, based on automated refraction. Analyses included 4036 black participants without history of cataract surgery. Associations with myopia and hyperopia were evaluated in logistic regression analyses. RESULTS: The prevalence of myopia was 21.9% and was higher in men (25.0%) than in women (19.5%). The prevalence of hyperopia was 46.9% and was higher in women (51.8%) than in men (40.5%). The prevalence of myopia decreased from 17% in persons 40 to 49 years of age to 11% in those 50 to 59 years of age, but increased after 60 years of age. The prevalence of hyperopia increased from 29% at 40 to 49 years of age to 65% at 50 to 59 years of age, and tended to decline thereafter. A higher prevalence of myopia was positively associated (P < 0.05) with lifetime occupations requiring nearwork, nuclear opacities, posterior subcapsular opacities, glaucoma, and ocular hypertension. Factors associated with hyperopia were the same as for myopia, except for occupation, and in the opposite direction. CONCLUSIONS: High prevalences of myopia and hyperopia were found in this large black adult population. The prevalence of myopia (hyperopia) increased (decreased) after 60 years of age, which is inconsistent with data from other studies. The high prevalence of age-related cataract, glaucoma, and other eye conditions in the Barbados Eye Study population may contribute to the findings. (+info)
Connectivity of marine populations: open or closed? (2/76)Most marine populations are thought to be well connected via long-distance dispersal of larval stages. Eulerian and Lagrangian flow models, coupled with linear mortality estimates, were used to examine this assumption. The findings show that when simple advection models are used, larval exchange rates may be overestimated; such simplistic models fail to account for a decrease of up to nine orders of magnitude in larval concentrations resulting from diffusion and mortality. The alternative process of larval retention near local populations is shown to exist and may be of great importance in the maintenance of marine population structure and management of coastal marine resources.

Detection of dengue infection in patients investigated for leptospirosis in Barbados. (3/76)The annual incidence of leptospirosis in Barbados is approximately 13 severe cases/100,000. The peak incidence occurs in October to December of each year, coinciding with the months of heaviest rainfall. During the second half of 1995, an epidemic of dengue type 1 infection produced almost 1,000 laboratory-confirmed cases. During the same period, leptospirosis mortality was twice the average, suggesting that some cases of leptospirosis were being misdiagnosed and treated inappropriately. Sera from patients investigated for dengue or leptospirosis were analyzed retrospectively to determine the extent of misdiagnosis. During 1995 and 1996, 31 of 139 and 29 of 93 patients, respectively, were confirmed as having leptospirosis. Sera from the remaining leptospirosis-negative patients were tested for IgM antibodies to dengue virus. During 1995 and 1996, 48 of 108 patients and 21 of 64 patients, respectively, were found to have dengue. In 1997, sera from all patients investigated for leptospirosis were also tested prospectively for IgM antibodies to dengue: 38 of 92 leptospirosis-negative patients (41%) were dengue IgM-positive, while 2 of 25 leptospirosis cases also had serologic evidence suggesting acute dengue infection. A second large outbreak of dengue caused by serotype 2 occurred in 1997. During the 1995 and 1997 dengue epidemics in Barbados, dengue cases outnumbered leptospirosis cases investigated in the leptospirosis diagnostic protocol. During 1997, patients investigated but negative for dengue were also tested for anti-leptospiral IgM: 7.3% (19 of 262) were IgM-positive. Substantial misdiagnosis of both dengue and leptospirosis can occur and greater public awareness and clinical suspicion of the similar presentations of these two diseases are necessary. (+info)
Observed versus indirect estimates of incidence of open-angle glaucoma. (4/76)Incidence data on open-angle glaucoma (OAG) are limited and difficult to obtain. To date, few studies have reported incidence directly measured from population-based cohorts. Other reported estimates have been derived indirectly from age-specific prevalence by using several assumptions, and their validity is unknown. To the authors' knowledge, this report presents the first comparison of observed versus indirect estimates of OAG incidence based on data from the population-based Barbados Incidence Study of Eye Diseases (1992-1997) (n = 3,427; 85% participation). The observed 4-year incidence of OAG was 1.2% (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.6, 2.1%) at ages 40-49 years, 1.5% (95% CI: 0.8, 2.5%) at ages 50-59 years, 3.2% (95% CI: 2.0, 4.8%) at ages 60-69 years, and 4.2% (95% CI: 2.6, 6.3%) in persons at ages 70 or more years. When incidence was calculated from the prevalence data, power function fitting achieved a closer approximation to observed incidence than did logistic curve fitting. Calculated incidence rates for each group were similar when assuming mortality that was equal (incidence rate = 0.7, 1.3, 2.3, and 4.8%) or differential (incidence rate = 0.7, 1.2, 2.4, and 4.8%). Other nonlogistic approaches also increased the resemblance of observed and calculated estimates. In the absence of longitudinal data, reasonably valid incidence estimates of OAG were obtained from available prevalence data. These estimation techniques can be useful when OAG incidence estimates are required for research or public health purposes. (+info)
Multipoint linkage-disequilibrium-mapping approach based on the case-parent trio design. (5/76)In the present study we propose a multipoint approach, for the mapping of genes, that is based on the case-parent trio design. We first derive an expression for the expected preferential-allele-transmission statistics for transmission, from either parent to an affected child, for an arbitrary location within a chromosomal region demarcated by several genetic markers. No assumption about genetic mechanism is needed in this derivation, beyond the assumption that no more than one disease gene lies in the region framed by the markers. When one builds on this representation, the way in which one may maximize the genetic information from multiple markers becomes obvious. This proposed method differs from the popular transmission/disequilibrium test (TDT) approach for fine mapping, in the following ways: First, in contrast with the TDT approach, all markers contribute information, regardless of whether the parents are heterozygous at any one marker, and incomplete trio data can be utilized in our approach. Second, rather than performing the TDT at each marker separately, we propose a single test statistic that follows a chi(2) distribution with 1 df, under the null hypothesis of no linkage or linkage disequilibrium to the region. Third, in the presence of linkage evidence, we offer a means to estimate the location of the disease locus along with its sampling uncertainty. We illustrate the proposed method with data from a family study of asthma, conducted in Barbados. (+info)
Congenital afibrinogenemia: mutations leading to premature termination codons in fibrinogen A alpha-chain gene are not associated with the decay of the mutant mRNAs. (6/76)Congenital afibrinogenemia is a rare coagulation disorder with autosomal recessive inheritance, characterized by the complete absence or extremely reduced levels of fibrinogen in patients' plasma and platelets. Eight afibrinogenemic probands, with very low plasma levels of immunoreactive fibrinogen were studied. Sequencing of the fibrinogen gene cluster of each proband disclosed 4 novel point mutations (1914C>G, 1193G>T, 1215delT, and 3075C>T) and 1 already reported (3192C>T). All mutations, localized within the first 4 exons of the A alpha-chain gene, were null mutations predicted to produce severely truncated A alpha-chains because of the presence of premature termination codons. Since premature termination codons are frequently known to affect the metabolism of the corresponding messenger RNAs (mRNAs), the degree of stability of each mutant mRNA was investigated. Cotransfection experiments with plasmids expressing the wild type and each of the mutant A alpha-chains, followed by RNA extraction and semiquantitative reverse-transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction analysis, demonstrated that all the identified null mutations escaped nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Moreover, ex vivo analysis at the protein level demonstrated that the presence of each mutation was sufficient to abolish fibrinogen secretion. (+info)
Direct determination of the timing of sea level change during termination II. (7/76)An outcrop within the last interglacial terrace on Barbados contains corals that grew during the penultimate deglaciation, or Termination II. We used combined 230Th and 231Pa dating to determine that they grew 135.8 +/- 0.8 thousand years ago, indicating that sea level was 18 +/- 3 meters below present sea level at the time. This suggests that sea level had risen to within 20% of its peak last-interglacial value by 136 thousand years ago, in conflict with Milankovitch theory predictions. Orbital forcing may have played a role in the deglaciation, as may have isostatic adjustments due to large ice sheets. Other corals in the same outcrop grew during oxygen isotope (delta18O) substage 6e, indicating that sea level was 38 +/- 5 meters below present sea level, about 168.0 thousand years ago. When compared to the delta18O signal in the benthic V19-30/V19-28 record at that time, the coral data extend to the previous glacial cycle the conclusion that deep-water temperatures were colder during glacial periods.

Diabetes in a Caribbean population: epidemiological profile and implications. (8/76)OBJECTIVE: To examine the distribution and impact of diabetes, glycaemic status, and related factors, in a predominantly black adult Caribbean population. METHODS: The study included 4709 people, or 84% of a simple random sample of Barbadian-born citizens aged 40-84 years, examined between 1988 and 1992 and re-assessed 4 years later. Diabetes was evaluated according to physician-diagnosis and glycosylated haemoglobin (GHb). Associations were assessed by logistic regression analyses, cumulative mortality by product-limit methods and death-rate ratios by Cox proportional hazards regression. RESULTS: Among the 4314 black participants, the prevalence of known diabetes, predominantly type 2, was 9.1% at 40-49 years of age and increased to 24.0% at 70-79 years. The overall prevalence was 17.5%, while it was 12.5% in mixed (black/ white; n = 184) and 6.0% in white/other participants (n = 133), only 0.3% had younger-onset. Additionally, 2% had GHb >10% (>2 SD over the mean) without diabetes history. Sulphonylureas were the most frequent treatment, while insulin use was infrequent. In black participants, diabetes was positively associated with age (OR = 1.03 per year; 95% CI : 1.02-1.04), diabetes family history (OR = 2.85, 95% CI : 2.39-3.40), hypertension (OR = 1.71, 95% CI : 1.42-2.05), obesity (BMI > or = 25 kg/m(2); OR = 1.74, 95% CI : 1.44-2.10), and high waist-hip ratio (WHR > or = 0.92; OR = 1.29, 95% CI : 1.09-1.53). Ocular co-morbidities were increased among people with diabetes, as was 4-year-mortality (death rate ratio = 1.42, 95% CI : 1.10-1.83). There was a 9% increase in mortality for each 1% increase in GHb (death rate ratio = 1.09, 95% CI : 1.04-1.15). CONCLUSIONS: A markedly high prevalence of diabetes existed in the adult black population, affecting almost one in five people and increasing morbidity and mortality. Prevention strategies are urgently needed to reduce the adverse implications of diabetes in this and similar populations. (+info)

Comparative law and justice/Barbados - Wikiversity
The island of Barbados, oftentimes known as "Little England," is located in the Caribbean. Through the centuries, Barbados has remained the most British of the Caribbean Islands. Barbados was first inhabited by the British in 1627 and it wasnt until the gradual introduction of political and social reforms in the 1940s and 1950s that Barbados gained complete independence from the UK in 1966. The island was first inhabited by male settlers and slaves captured en route. In 1639, the House of Assembly was formed, which was the only representative legislature in the Caribbean to remain in existence for more than three centuries.. As a basis for the Constitution of 1966, Barbadians used a statement on individual rights and privileges from the 1652 Charter of Barbados. For almost 300 years, Barbados remained in the hands of a small white minority. It was not until World War I that reform finally came, however, as a result of ideas brought back by Clennell Wilsden Wickham of Barbados, Andrew Arthur ...
Cancer Second Leading Cause Of Death In Barbados | GIS
Cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as the leading cause of death in Barbados. And the main cancers of public health concern are prostate, colon, breast and cervix, which account for more than 60 per cent of sickness and death from the disease.. This was revealed by Health Minister John Boyce today, as he addressed the opening ceremony at the Caribbean Association of Oncology and Haemotology Conference at the Hilton Barbados Resort.. Mr. Boyce told his audience that Barbados had a cancer registry which formed part of the Barbados National Registry for Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases (BNR). Data from the first year of operation of the cancer component has indicated that breast, uterus and cervical cancers were the leading cause of death in women, accounting for 49 per cent of all cancer deaths, while 48 per cent of total deaths in men were attributed to prostate cancer. He said that data from the registry had already begun to positively influence policy and programme development ...
Economy of Barbados - Wikipedia
Since achieving independence in 1966, the island nation of Barbados has transformed itself from a High-income economy dependent upon "sugar" production, into an upper-middle-income economy based on tourism and the offshore sector. Barbados went into a deep recession in the 1990s after 3 years of steady decline brought on by fundamental macroeconomic imbalances. After a painful re-adjustment process, the economy began to grow again in 1993. Growth rates have averaged between 3%-5% since then. The countrys three main economic drivers are: tourism, the international business sector, and foreign direct-investment. These are supported in part by Barbados operating as a service-driven economy and an international business centre. By the end of 2012 the Barbados economy still exhibited signs of weakness with their main export (12.53% a value of $96.5 million) being liquor closely followed by frozen-fish (8%) and preserved-milk (6.23%) to Nigeria (a total of 41.38% at $319 million) with nearly ...

Barbados anole - Wikipedia
The Barbados anole (Anolis extremus) is a species of anole lizard that is native to Barbados, an island-nation in the Caribbean. Originally endemic to Barbados, it has since been introduced to Saint Lucia and Bermuda. It was previously treated as a subspecies of Martiniques anole (A. roquet). Males have pale lavender to blue-gray heads, with blue eyelids. Their dorsal surfaces are deep green with dark markings and occasionally white spots, and their bellies are yellow. Females are smaller and duller in color and may have a mid-dorsal stripe. It remains widespread and abundant on Barbados, where it is the only anole species. It adapts well to populated environments. It has been reported in Florida since the 1990s, though this is likely due to repeated introductions and escapes as a sustained, breeding population has not been confirmed.

Burger King's Equine Burgers, Non-Communicable Diseases and the Coming of Cost-U-Less | Barbados Underground
The news this week that fast food restaurant Burger King had to pull beef burgers from its UK outlets which were supplied by an Irish vender has alarmed many Barbadians. Why you ask? Burger King recently opened its doors at Sky Mall formerly Mall Internationale in Barbados. It is a bold move by Bizzy Williams the principal investo given the view that Barbadians are not regarded as burger lovers. Perhaps he is banking on the fact that Bajans have moved on from the McDonalds experience. Nothing wrong with eating horse meat though, the issue like most things nowadays is it is all about the lack of business ethics and public trust. If you say you are selling beef burgers how the hell does it translate to HORSE MEAT? Let us hope that the carcasses of some of those retired horses owned by Bizzys brother do not make it into the kitchen of Burger King Barbados..

Survey raises critical issues for Barbados - ZIZ Broadcasting Corporation
Bridgetown, Barbados (BGIS) - While the data compiled in the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) Report will close some of the gaps currently existing in available statistics in Barbados, the findings indicate a number of critical issues that need to be dealt with as a matter of urgency.. That was the opinion of minister of social care, constituency empowerment and community development, Steven Blackett, while speaking at the launch of the MICS Report on Wednesday.. He indicated that the first issue related to the nutritional status of Barbadian children.. "The report notes that 35 per cent of our children under age 5 are moderately underweight, while 1.5 percent is classified as severely underweight. Less than 10 percent of the children, about 7.7 percent, are moderately stunted or too short for their age and 6.8 percent are moderately wasted or too thin for their height. About 12.2 percent of children under age 5 are obese or overweight.. "Clearly, these results suggest that government, ...
Mr. Barbados: Oliver Messel, a Retrospective Study...
Oliver Hilary Sambourne Messel, born into a well-to-do English family, started his illustrious career as a portrait painter which evolved into costume design and theatrical production. Messel was the toast of Londons theatre set, with legions of talented friends including Hollywood stars. Messels career behind the stage sets was highly successful, but it is his career as an interior designer that made him a household name. Surely, his Royal connections helped his popularity. Messel was a favorite uncle to Tony Armstrong-Jones, aka Earl of Snowdon, who was married to Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeths fun-loving younger sister. At 55, exhausted and suffering from arthritis, Messel was lured to the Caribbean island of Barbados by Ronald and Marietta Tree, high society members who helped develop the island into an upper class vacation spot. After a stay with the Trees, Messel and his companion picked up sticks and moved to Barbados, leaving the stage in London far behind. Once settled in ...

This 2007 Article IV Consultation highlights that the economy of Barbados has been growing at a solid pace, and the outlook for 2007 is generally favorable. Robust output growth of about 4 percent is expected to continue in 2007, supported by tourism and construction. Inflation, which was pushed up in 2006 by higher energy prices and a temporary import surcharge, is set to decelerate to 51/2 percent in 2007. However, the current account deficit, despite having narrowed in 2006, is still high and projected to remain unchanged at about 81/2 percent of GDP.
Quality of life issues and second-generation migration: the case of 'Bajan-Brit returnees' - WestminsterResearch
This paper forms part of research that is investigating the migration of young Bajan-Brits to Barbados. Specifically, it explores the role of quality of life issues in the decision-making processes of young Bajan-Brits as they negotiate their return to Barbados. The research, based on 51 in-depth qualitative interviews conducted with an under-researched cohort of young Bajan-Brits living in Barbados, argues from a lure of home conceptualisation that the return of young Bajan-Brits to Barbados can best be understood from the context of a search for a better quality of life in the face of social and economic disenfranchisement in the UK context. Subsequently, the paper examines the extent to which the quality of life factors which formed the basis of return to Barbados have in fact been realised on the part of young Bajan-Brits in their adjustment to life in Barbados. The paper ultimately argues that despite problems of adjustment, young Bajan-Brits have generally been successful in actualising a ...
Barbados - Agriculture and fishing | Britannica
Barbados - Barbados - Agriculture and fishing: About three-fourths of the land is arable, and most of it is planted with sugarcane. Sugar production dominated the economy until the 1950s, but the industry has declined in importance. Agricultural production remains dominated by large farm units, but the pattern of production has changed, mainly as a result of falling sugar prices and of government-sponsored programs of agricultural diversification and limited land settlement. As a result, there has been significant growth in food production (vegetables, fruits, and livestock), mainly for local consumption. High-quality sea island cotton is also grown. The growing of tropical flowers and foliage has also proved

The island was uninhabited when first settled by the British in 1627. African slaves worked the sugar plantations established on the island, which initially dominated the Caribbean sugar industry. By 1720 Barbados was no longer a dominant force within the sugar industry, having been surpassed by the Leeward Islands and Jamaica. Slavery was abolished in 1834. The Barbadian economy remained heavily dependent on sugar, rum, and molasses production through most of the 20th century. The gradual introduction of social and political reforms in the 1940s and 1950s led to complete independence from the UK in 1966. In the 1990s, tourism and manufacturing surpassed the sugar industry in economic importance ...

Effects of the 1884 Beet Sugar Crisis on British Guiana and Barbados Essay - 6357 Words
CRISIS has apparently cohabited with the British West Indian sugar industry for much of that industrys existence. Crisis, if not ruin, has been forecast or asserted since the early 18th century during the perennial Anglo-French wars, during and after the war for American Independence, during the Napoleonic wars, when the slave trade was abolished, when competition from Mauritius and East India emerged, when slavery was about to be abolished, and, of course when control over the traditional market for sugar was lost. What is remarkable is that this crisis-ridden industry survived all these shocks. In 1884, however, the British West Indian economy entered another period of depression and instability. The primary reason for this was the sharp decline in the sugar industry and this decline was due to the increased competition from sugar beet which was manufactured by France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Belgium and Russia. According to the report submitted by the 1897 West Indian Royal Commission, ...

Purpose: To examine potential ethnic diversity in the prevalence of POAG among populations of the "same race," Methods: Medical literature was searched, and 11 population-based studies on populations of African origin and five on populations of European origin were identified. Results: The prevalence of POAG was significantly higher in white Australians than in the Dutch (p,0.001) and was significantly lower (p,0.001) among black populations in South Africa, Nigeria, Tanzania and the United States than in Ghana, St. Lucia or Barbados.

The 'Rape' of Rachel North
She is a victim in both cases of dark-skinned young men: Germaine Lindsay who allegedly blew up the carriage she was on, came from Barbados and was 19 years old at the time; while the Jamaican who allegedly raped her in 2002 was 17 years old at the time. One happened on July 17, the other on July 7th. Her book out of the Tunnel compares these two experiences. I suggest the rape story is largely fictitious.. After her alleged rape, RN was hypnotically regressed by a police psychologist , to help her remember:. "When I couldnt remember, I gave permission for a Professor of forensic Psychology to work with the police using new techniques on me in interview to unlock the suppressed memories locked down by masssive trauma-amnesia.". Hmm, that does seem a good basis for putting a 17-year old Jamaican immigrant into jail for 15 years.. She got home late from a Stockwell pub, to her ground-floor flat in Wood Green, quite drunk on vodka (I realised I was drunk) at around 12.30 at night (page ...

More of a tourist than a traveller, Im standing on an outcropping of volcanic rock in the Caribbean, scratching away at my archipelago of bug bites. My guide Calvin, a relaxed fellow with dark skin and blue eyes, notices my agitation and stoops to pluck leaves from a nearby plant used as a local medicine for wounds.

Barbuda - often confused with or mispronounced as "Bermuda" or "Barbados" - is a small, flat coral island in the Caribbean, only 17 degrees from the equator.

Two cases of zika virus confirmed in Ireland
Although the virus is generally harmless, often presenting few or no symptoms, there is widespread concern about its effect on pregnant women. Concerns have been raised that the virus could induce a birth defect called microcephaly, in which a baby is born with an abnormally small head and brain.. The World Health Organisation has described the outbreak of the virus in South America as a "threat of alarming proportions" and said that up to four million people could be infected.. Pregnant Irish women were warned last week by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre not to travel to areas affected by the virus.

Irelands Department of Foreign Affairs has issued warnings for 20 countries including Brazil, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Barbados and Colombia..

Dominica | Energy for All
The Small Island Developing States, or SIDS, include 52 countries spanning the Caribbean, Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans, as well as the South China and Mediterranean Seas. They range from low-income countries such as Haiti to high-income countries like Barbados and Singapore.. Despite their diversity, many of them have a challenge and irony in common. Being small, often remotely-located, and usually without domestic fossil fuel reserves, these countries rely on imported fossil fuels for their energy, and bear the brunt of high and volatile oil prices. The irony is that many of these same islands have abundant renewable energy resources, including wind, solar, hydro and geothermal. And many are at sea-level, vulnerable to sea-level rise provoked by climate change, and highly-sensitized to the urgency of making a transition to a greener economy-a transition that would reduce their exposure to petroleum price shocks and hikes ...

In nineteen question-mark question-mark my silent grandfather came to the United States. He left the hot chatty island of Barbados and because he existed in silence no one knows when he came. He came for shade. To drink tea-colored liquor we poured out, that scoured the tin sink. To watch every Saturday, as he did until he died, American cartoons like Rocky & Bullwinkle. He came to father my silent mother and find an America that seemed less like a place than an anti-place, a not-Barbados, not-Europe, not Asia or Africa, not meals of boiled monkey and coocoo or potatoes rotted bitter and Argus-eyed in the ground. Not this, not that. My grandfather succeeded because silence succeeds. It cant be argued against. It is the last word. My grandfather, Louis Cassill, came from an Anglophone island to an English-speaking country, where people were like radios that couldnt be turned off. I think he would have preferred a place that babbled nonsense in his ears. He sat alone and kept his pale amphibian ...

08: National Molasses Bar Day - Food Festivals
February 8th is National Molasses Bar Day.. Molasses, known as treacle in Britain, is a thick, sticky by-product made from refining sugarcane and sugar beets into sugar. Sugarcane molasses is used in cooking and baking. The juice of the sugarcane is boiled. The juice goes through a centrifuge to get the sugar out. The remaining liquid is molasses. It is typically sold as "mild", "barbados", or "cane sugar". If the liquid is boiled again, it is sold as "robust" or "strong". A third boil yields "Blackstrap"-it is very strong and bitter as most if not all the sugar has been boiled out.. Molasses gives gingerbread that deep, sultry flavor. It is often paired with spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg.. The word molasses comes from the Portuguese melaço, derived from mel, which is the Latin word for "honey".. Molasses Bars ...

PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ: Well, you know that this gentleman - there is ample evidence that this guy is a terrorist, clear evidence that he took part and he masterminded, among many other terrorist attacks, in the blowing the Cuban plane that was coming from Barbados to Caracas. It was blown up, and 73 people died as a result of this terrorist attack. But also in Venezuela this person occupied a senior position in the political police force, andthere are many evidences of tortures, of people missing as a result of his acts. It was in the 1960s and the 1970s. So this gentleman, Posada, was already condemned in Venezuela for the blowing of the plane. He was in jail, but he fled. He escaped with the connivance of friends in jail. So we have the duty, once we located him - and we located him here in the U.S. - well it is our duty to request that he is extradited to Venezuela because he is a murderer. He is an assassin.
