Less a union and meeting of the minds and more, sometimes, as an uneasy economic alliance. Communication about finances isn’t always what it could be, both before and after marriage.New factors influence partners’ thinking about money. For example, a Merrill Edge survey on love and money found that many mass affluent Americans say social news feeds influence their spending habits (48%), budget (43%) and savings (42%).

The CDB meeting agenda outlines topics designed to stave off weak economic growth in the Caribbean… consideration of how climate change will and is already impacting the region, what is really at risk… how we can and must boost productivity within our countries… can we find something other than tourism as an economic driver… and getting to the nitty gritty of what may be wrong with the model for attracting foreign direct investment. The meeting, where some 500 international delegates are expected to attend actually got started since yesterday with meetings largely headquartered at the Gus Lightbourne Gym. Though the 47th AGM was originally announced by the former TCI government administration through then Finance Minister, Hon Washington Misick; chair of the sessions is recently elected Premier and new finance Minister, Hon Sharlene Robinson who extended welcome and said she anticipates the fruitful dialogue among regional colleagues which should see participants leaving feeling revitalized. President of the CDB, Dr Warren Smith said the sessions are geared to reexamination so that “Members exploit their synergies and maximize the benefits of the regional agreement, while moving closer to the goal of inclusive growth and shared prosperity.” The meetings is being held in the TCI for the second time with the 2017 theme being, “Integration, Trade & Growth.”#MagneticMediaNews#CDB47annualmeeting#intergrationtradeandgrowth Recommended for you CDB Annual Meeting in TCI: Integration, Trade & Growth read more
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, November 30, 2017 – Nassau – The Government of The Bahamas is committed to utilizing technology as a catalyst for national development, including using technology to integrate all of the country’s essential services, Parliamentary Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister, Mrs. Pakesia Parker-Edgecombe said Tuesday.Another end result will be the creation of a more robust and secure government portal that will allow for transacting business in a more interactive way, at both at the local and global level. The strategy is part of an overarching plan to create a more technologically driven society within The Bahamas, placing technology at the heart of all public and private initiatives.Technology will also be used to facilitate the country’s participation in regional and global trade matters and to strengthen its cross-border collaboration on issues of mutual concern.“We believe that the effective governance and operation of our country depends on the extent to which we can use technology to integrate all essential services, create a more robust and secure government portal, and encourage Bahamians to embrace the new interactive method of doing business in the country,” Mrs. Parker-Edgecombe said.“We are well on our way to further strengthening institutions and building capacity through ICT.”Addressing the Opening Session of the URCA/Caribbean Telecommunications Union’s ‘ICT Week’ at Atlantis, Paradise Island, Mrs. Parker-Edgecombe said the creation of a more technologically driven society within The Bahamas is a major plank of the Minnis Administration.“We see it as a vital investment in expanding the economy and creating new, domestic, and foreign entrepreneurial opportunities; the possibility of domestic/foreign partnerships, and increased employment opportunities for Bahamians.”Parliamentary Secretary Parker-Edgecombe said the Government’s commitment to ICT is evident through the recent passage of the Commercial Enterprises legislation in the House of Assembly which, she said, embraces a broad range of investment opportunities that require secure, reliable ICT infrastructure to establish new, global business.“Our national ICT framework is a strength that we will continue to develop, improve and promote as a significant aspect of our ability to compete globally.”Mrs. Parker-Edgecombe said the B-Smart Bahamas initiative recently announced by Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis, will also play a critical role in the Administration’s drive to “build a modern Bahamas” using technology.“This initiative (B-Smart Bahamas) is expected to embrace technology as an integral part of the Bahamian society, allowing greater public online communication access through the establishment of strategic public WIFI hotspots throughout the country.“This initiative also aims to embrace technology to establish a National Alert messaging process, particularly during times of natural disasters. (The system was piloted during the recent hurricane season).“As we continue to build the modern Bahamas, technology will be at the heart of all public and private initiatives. We are also ensuring that technology facilitates our participation in regional and global trade and strengthens our cross-border collaboration on issues of mutual concern.”By: Matt Maura (BIS)Photo caption: Parliamentary Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister, with responsibility for Information and Communications, Pakesia Parker-Edgecombe addresses ‘ICT Week’ at Atlantis, Paradise Island, November 28, 2017.(BIS Photo/Patrick Hanna) Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: read more

Chris Steffen said.The assistant principal of the school alerted law enforcement to the situation about 10 p.m., reporting that “other students were in fear of (the suspect),” Steffen said.Deputies who tracked down the alleged perpetrator in Lemon Grove spoke with his mother and stepfather and determining that the youth had access to hunting rifles, according to Steffen.“The investigation is ongoing to determine if this student has access to other weapons,” the lieutenant said.After being questioned, the teen was arrested and booked into juvenile hall.The alleged threat came a day after a Westview High School student was arrested on suspicion of making similar menacing statements regarding gun violence that supposedly was going to occur this week at the campus in the Torrey Highlands neighborhood of San Diego.That teen, whose name, age and gender were withheld, also allegedly warned classmates to stay home from school due to the purportedly planned violence. Several of students who heard the comments reported them to school officials, who called the police.Last week, alleged threats against Torrey Pines High School led to the arrests of a 14-year-old freshman enrolled at the Del Mar Heights-area campus and a 16-year-old non-student.The local incidents have played out amid a spate of direct and veiled threats — most of them seemingly unfounded — occurring nationwide in the aftermath of the gun massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
