Maisie-Harris-Dillo_20210613-000846_1 Mitsie Harris-Dillon

Sistas of the Ankh and Ma'at Sisterhood Circle are set to host Special Guest Mitsie Harris-Dillon, Interim President of the National Parent-Teacher Association of Jamaica on their Second Sunday Webinar highlighting Parenting Roles and Community development.

Harris-Dillon will speak on the topic "How Are Parents and Children Coping in Education During the Pandemic." To access the program Go to: Zoom.com Type in Meeting ID: 389 841 7079 or Join Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/3898417079 .

Sistas of D Ankh, founded by Hazel Yahmin Williams-Vaz and Wholistic Administrator, Pettia Williams, joined Ma'at Sisterhood Circle, founded by Sharon Oshun Parris-Chambers, assembled on August 2020 to host webinars on the Zoom platform with the sole purpose of uplifting women and families. “This collaboration grew to include the production team: Nadia Oshun-Brown, Theo Chambers and Ralston Francis whose aim is widening the network of support available for women in Jamaica and the Diaspora,” said Sharon Oshun Parris-Chambers.

The parent-student advocate will address the critical importance between learning and nutrition. The effect of the pandemic on parents and families has been devastating on many levels, as it relates to children not having enough to eat at home, with greater reliance on meals provided at school. This has put pressure on school welfare funds and the government’s PATH programme to find solutions. Mrs. Harris-Dillon promised to stay abreast of the situation in the following quote from a Gleaner Article (2020). She said “The association will also keep a close watch on the education ministry’s plans for welfare students and PATH beneficiaries to ensure that everybody receives a meal because yuh cyah learn if yuh hungry, and we are aware of this concern”. We will ask her for a current update on the situation.

Artiste Mom Nubian Red Seeks Help to Save Rafael’s Leg

Save-Rafaels-Leg-Photo2 Rafael Harris

Kingston, Jamaica (May 28, 2021). Nubian Red is an up-and-coming artist quietly building a name for herself internationally since 2016. Nubian Red has created a new sound called JamRock which is fusion music; a true original style and a music with depth and soul. To date, Nubian Red has released three singles; What You Say, Lost Thing and Freight Train which are available on all major streaming platforms.

As an independent artist, she is taking on the challenge of establishing her music in an unpredictable and high-risk industry.

Nubian Red is also mother to her only child, and most precious gift, Rafael. He was born in 2015 with a unique challenge; the one in a million orthopedic condition called Tibial Hemimelia, TH (of the right) which has rendered him disabled. Rafael is a child prodigy, reading at 18 months, he plays the piano, and has an incredible talent for numbers.

As a result of the rarity, historically the treatment of TH has been amputation and was the only option offered to Rafael by the medical team in Jamaica. However, modern medicine has advanced treatment that corrects the condition for full or close to full functionality of the affected limb. The challenge is availability and cost as presently there are very few medical facilities that offer the corrective treatment.

The Paley Institute in Palm Beach Florida is one such facility. The founder of the Paley Institute, Dr Dror Paley had examined Rafael in 2016 and gave a positive prognosis for treatment with three (3) major surgeries and physical therapy. The treatment is estimated at a total of US$250,000.

The surgeries would make Rafael the first Jamaican child born with the condition to receive the modern day treatment option instead of amputation. A GoFundMe Campaign has been set up that has raised US$19,000 which has been deposited at the Paley Institute. GoFundMe Account https://www.gofundme.com/f/savingrafaelslegcampaign

For May 2021, Child's Month the family has organized a fundraiser called Radiothon (a telethon on Radio) with various internet and free to air radio stations in Jamaica, the United States, the United Kingdom, Netherlands and Ghana.

For more information about Rafael and his condition and donate to the cause visit https://www.nubianred.com/rafawantstoplay To contribute or participate in Radiothon and future fundraising activities go to https://www.nubianred.com/radiothon Find out more about Nubian Red the artist at https://www.nubianred.com/ Or contact Nubian Red directly by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

India’s central bank imposes interoperability rule for mobile wallets and prepaid cards

Interoperable Enable Interoperability

Source - eMarketer.Com

India’s central bank is asking that all licensed prepaid payment instruments (PPIs)—which include mobile wallets and closed- and open-loop prepaid cards—be interoperable by April 2022, per Business Today. Mass transit cards are exempt from the rule, and gift card issuers have the option to enable interoperability.

Interoperability will be facilitated through card networks for card-based PPIs and the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) for mobile wallets. In practice, this means users with mobile wallets can send payments to various wallet brands and also use them at any UPI-accepting merchant.

It also means that consumers will be able to use their mobile wallets and select prepaid cards to withdraw cash from ATMs.

Benin-Bronzes_1-Getty-Images Thousands of sculptures and carvings were taken during the destruction of Benin City in present-day Nigeria

Germany has agreed to return to Nigeria priceless artefacts that were stolen during the colonisation of Africa.

British troops looted thousands of artworks known as the Benin Bronzes from the Kingdom of Benin, in present-day Nigeria, in 1897.

Following auctions, some of the bronzes ended up in museums and private collections across Europe.

They hold deep cultural significance, and there is growing international pressure to give them back.

Why Cyber Security Should Be At The Top Of Your Web Presence!

Gas_Cyber_Security The fuel shortage we were afraid of has arrived well ahead of schedule and leaving parts of the East Coast running on empty. 

The fuel shortage we were afraid of has arrived well ahead of schedule and leaving parts of the East Coast running on empty. 

CNN NEWS 

Several gas stations along the East Coast ran out of fuel Tuesday as worried drivers aggressively filled their tanks. The run on fuel began after a ransomware attack Friday shut down the Colonial Pipeline, a massive 5,500-mile artery that supplies nearly half of all the gas and diesel used on the East Coast. As of Tuesday, most of the pipeline remained offline. Here’s the latest: 

  • Bone dry: On Tuesday, 8.5% of gas stations in North Carolina and nearly 8% in Virginia didn't have gasoline, according to GasBuddy, a site that tracks fuel prices and demand. Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina also reported outages. Even GasBuddy itself reported website outages as result of “extreme traffic.” 
  • Prices spike: As demand shot up, the national price at the pump hit $2.985 on Tuesday, the highest level in nearly six years, according to AAA.
  • Emergency measures: Virginia's governor declared a state of emergency. Georgia, North Carolina and other state governments also stepped in to ease supply concerns. The EPA issued an emergency fuel waiver. 

  • A plea: US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm urged Americans not to hoard gas. The company that operates the pipeline expected it to be substantially operational by the end of the week.

  • The dreaded I-word: Concerns about inflation and supply chain disruptions sparked a selloff on Wall Street (more on that later).

With COVID-19 restrictions lifting, more people are booking trips and hotels online, which is very good for Google’s advertising business. Google’s employees, however, are working from home and not traveling as much on the company dime — and that’s also good for its business.

 

During the first quarter, Google parent Alphabet Inc. saved $268 million in expenses from company promotions, travel and entertainment, compared with the same period a year earlier, “primarily as a result of COVID-19,” according to a company filing.

Women’s Fund for Development a Network of Entrepreneurs – Sponsored by SOAD

Social-Development1

In March, the month of women and feminism, the State of the African Diaspora ratified its commitment to African and Afro-descendant women by creating the Development Fund in support of these Women. As a result, on 21 March, the World Day of combating racial discrimination, the results of the ‘First Call’ were released, in which 16 women-led projects were selected, with an emphasis on topics ranging from food production, health, education to remembrance of our history. It highlights the international scope of the call and its results, which expresses a remarkable area of concentration in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the participation of young Afro-Feminist leaders.

Chaired by our Prime Minister, The Vice Prime Minister and the Minister of Gender Equality, the first workshop was held with women whose projects were selected, starting the process of implementation of these, under a rigorous schedule, letter of commitment and an accompanying plan with international experts. There, the Network of Entrepreneurs funded by the State of the African Diaspora was born.

The general objective of this Network is promoting the autonomy of Afro-descendant and African women, through charitable and successful entrepreneurship strategies. It includes Afro-descendant and African women from Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Don't Sell Your Land - Joint Venture Best Return

LandSale
Land
RealEstate

As properties get increasingly scarce in prime areas, they are increasingly in demand by developers. The most common transaction between the landowner and developer is for the developer to purchase the land from the landowner.

This is never the best financial return for the landowner. The best return for the landowner is to enter into a joint venture with the developer, by placing his land in the deal as debt/equity investment.

The developer enters into an agreement with the landowner where the landowner invests the value of the land as debt with 0% interest and 20% equity of the profit. (Note each deal will have its own uniqueness based on land value, cost to build, and retail value of the real estate once completed). 

Landowners have to explore ways to extract the highest value from their land and have a long-term vision for sustainable revenue. If you are looking to attain the highest value from your land then a joint venture with a developer could be an opportunity worth exploring.

How Sephora is tackling racial bias in retail

Sephora

By: Alyssa Newcomb

From engaging outside experts to interviewing shoppers, Sephora hopes its team effort to tackle racial bias will have an impact on the wider retail industry.

Months before the killing of George Floyd sparked racial justice demonstrations, and before the coronavirus pandemic changed the way people shop, Sephora decided to confront an ugly truth.

“Bias is wired into our brains and shows up in every institution, from policing to real estate to online media, and so we wanted to understand the implications for retail, guided by our commitment to creating a more inclusive retail experience,” Deborah Yeh, Sephora’s chief marketing officer, tells Fortune. 

The beauty retailer recruited a team of experts from both inside and outside the company who could report on racial bias in retail and come up with actionable steps that Sephora and ideally other retailers could take to make the shopping experience more inclusive. The task force worked for more than a year to study the issue and earlier this month released its findings in the company’s first-ever “Racial Bias in Retail” report.

“The study was really intended to better understand the issue, and understand how commonplace racial bias is in retail settings, as well as similarities and differences across different racial groups, and ultimately measure the problem,” Yeh says. “But we also wanted to identify tactics and actions that could help mitigate bias treatments from the shopper experience.”

Coinbase closes at $328.28 per share in Nasdaq debut, valuing crypto exchange at $85.8 billion

Coinbase

By Shelly Palmer

As of this writing, Coinbase's market cap exceeds $86 billion. (I won't weigh in on the Wall Street aspects of this direct listing on Nasdaq; you can find that info online.) Quick facts: Coinbase is the largest cryptocurrency exchange. It trades under the ticker symbol COIN. It makes most of its money on trades involving Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), but also lets you exchange about 50 other cryptocurrencies. Almost everyone you know who has a substantial amount of BTC or ETH has done at least a few trades on Coinbase.

As you well know, we're in a crypto/NFT bubble right now. I'm not offering financial advice of any kind, but if you are going to start trading in crypto, Coinbase is far from the low-cost provider in the space. That said, don't get into this without doing your homework. The fine print on crypto transactions is so small you can't always see it.
