Joseph reportedly made the following statement at the ceremony held in Barbados: “The fact is I have witnessed many of our children die in Antigua and Barbuda having contracted COVID from their parents or members of their family, so at least the dialogue should begin.”

Here are some of the responses from residents:

Confused: Why continue with the madness? Why continue the fear mongering? How much are they paying you? Who do you owe your allegiance to? You are the head of health care system speak the number of children that died because of COVID-19. With out the full data you approved a drug with the 6 pages of side effects that was not disclosed. People who claimed injury were marginalized and ignored. Now with the Data that suggest that infants, toddlers, pre teens have a very low risk of serious complication and or death. Then there are data that suggest that the drug itself poses no benefits when compared to the risk. Are we not following the science? Ori s the science not convenient with the big pharma’s quota’s? Please don’t sacrifice our children our future to these companies. This drug is still being sold under EUA for a reason
Bushman: You treasonous liar!

Police ranks on patrol duty on Saturday night intercepted a robbery being committed by two males, one of whom has been arrested while the other escaped.

Sometime around 20:00hrs, the ranks were on motorcycle patrol duty in Blygezight Gardens, in the vicinity of the Line Top, when they observed two identifiable males, both clad in dark-coloured clothing and one armed with an object, scuffling with two females whom they appeared to be robbing.

The ranks immediately approached the male, who dropped the object, and observed that it was a firearm.

The ranks immediately arrested the 29-year-old suspect who is from ‘B’ Field, Sophia.

He was escorted to the Kitty Police Station where the suspected firearm and one round of ammunition were lodged.

Efforts are being made to contact the females in question. Investigation in progress.

Last night (July 16), Wyclef Jean performed at the Capella concert at Camana Bay to the delight of thousands of fans. For those who were seeing Wyclef for the first time, they were treated to the performance of their lives. For others who are familiar with Wyclef’s music, it was like a trip down memory lane.

Smooth sound

Listening to Wyclef on stage, one fan said that he had a “smooth sound.”

He sounds the same as he does in the studio. You can hear that it’s just natural talent- no autotune, no gimmicks, just genius.

The fan added.

Memory lane

Wyclef also took fans down memory lane, giving a shout out to his Fugees followers and singing some songs from years back. While he sang, mobile phones lit up and a sea of fans waved back-and-forth, vocalizing their favourite tunes.

Looking forward to another show

Having seen Wyclef perform, some new fans said that they “would like to see another Wyclef show, perhaps with his own entourage, maybe even the Fugees as a group.”

It’s not just about Wyclef though. It is about the tourism boost that Cayman can receive from having international artists performing at events here. People would fly from Miami and other places just to see artists like Wyclef.

One fan shared.

In addition to the fan’s comment about the tourism boost, events like these also make available additional activities for residents to enjoy. Ultimately, it’s one less trip overseas and more time with family and friends spent here.

World Champs: Three Jamaicans through to women’s 400m semis Loop Jamaica

Jamaica will have three women in the semifinals of the 400m of the 2022 World Athletics Championships when they line up on Wednesday in Eugene, Oregon.

The trio is led by the veteran Stephenie Ann McPherson of MVP Track and Field Club, who qualified with the fastest time overall.

Drawn in heat two, the 33-year-old 2022 World Indoor bronze medallist ran a controlled race to win in 50.15s. Poland’s Natalia Kaczmarek was second in 50.21s with third going to Lieke Klaver of the Netherlands in a national record of 50.24.

Also through to the semis is Charokee Young, who made it through as one of six fastest non-automatic qualifiers. The fastest Jamaican woman over the distance this year and the second fastest in the world going into the championships with 49.87s, Young clocked 51.85s in heat 3 while running out of lane four. Her time in the heat makes her the 19th fastest of the semi-finalists.

The former Hydel High athlete ran 49.87s in April while representing Texas A&M University in the 2022 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Outdoor Track and Field Championships. She was the overall silver medallist at the end of a very long season and entered the Oregon22 championships with high expectations to medal.

Some analysts are worried though, that she, and others like her, may be feeling the effects of the long NCAA season.

Meanwhile, the fifth-placed finalist from the Tokoyo Olympics, Candice McLeod, also punched her ticket to the semis.

Drawn in the tight lane one in the sixth and final heat, McLeod came off the final bend in front and slowed down considerably as she approached the finish line where she was out-leaned by Poland’s Anna Kielbasinka who won in 50.63s.

McLeod was second in 50.76s, the sixth fastest of all the qualifiers, while Great Britain’s Victoria Ohuruogu was third in 51.07s.
