A massive 48% of the total reports received in 2016-17 related to race, 21% related to sexual discrimination and 17% of the complaints related to religious faith. Kick It Out revealed that 56% of the grievances received pertained to incidents in the Premier League, 34% in the EFL, 9% at non-league level and 1% during international fixtures. Grievances in professional matches marked a 53% increase from the 2015-16 season.“Kick It Out’s reporting statistics for the 2016-17 season clearly indicate discrimination is still prevalent within the beautiful game,” Roisin Wood, Kick It Out’s CEO, said.“As we head towards the 25th anniversary of the organisation in August 2018, it is a timely reminder that there is still significant work to be done to ensure all participants can feel safe and included in the sport.“Whilst the statistics show a large proportion of reporting taking place within the professional game, Kick It Out is aware of the vast scale of under-reporting within the grassroots game. This is one of a number of challenges the football authorities must tackle going forward.”Kick It Out actively encourages all those involved across the game to report any discrimination they witness or suffer.”Discrimination across all levels of the English football can be reported on Kick It Out’s reporting app – available on the App Store and Google Play – including the option to file reports anonymously.

Magnetic Media has received several alarming messages about so many schools being plagued by the itchy and highly contagious rash. And while the outbreak was addressed briefly by the Premier in a recent House of Assembly meeting, there has been no official notice issued. Hon Sharlene Robinson today said: “There is an obvious increase in cases of Chicken Pox in the Islands and the Government has said nothing to unsuspecting parents, children and citizens generally… I believe that something must be said or done.” Parents and teachers she said have been caught off guard; and despite the rash outbreak amongst children, parents are still bringing or sending their children to school. There remains no official word about the cases from the Ministry of Health and Human Services. Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, July 10th 2017: NASSAU: Rawson and Parliament Squares in the city centre bubbled with Bahamian pride in celebration of the 44th Bahamas Independence Anniversary National Pride and Flag-Raising Ceremony on Friday. Bahamians of all ages gathered in “the square” dressed in their Bahamian colors to enjoy the formalities, sights, sounds, and fanfare. The House of assembly and all of the surrounding area was also adorned in the national colors: black, aquamarine and gold. There could be no confusion as to what all the celebration was about: The delicious smell of Bahamian dishes on sale was not easy to pass by. Both local residents and tourists alike were captured by the sweet aroma of Bahamian food. Even homemade ice cream was crafted in the Bahamian national colors. There was also an array of festive Bahamian-coloured garments on sale along with unique accessories and trinkets to choose from.Story Courtesy: Sydnei Isaacs, Bahamas Information Services Moderated by eloquent child speakers Sara Williams, Reio Darling, Reanno Todd and Anthony Eccleston, the opening ceremony of National Pride Day was gracefully and effortlessly facilitated. Elegantly styled in an aquamarine Bahamian Androsia print gown, Governor General Her Excellency Dame Marguerite Pindling delivered beautiful and encouraging remarks on behalf of the event. She reminded all, “National unity is the awareness of a common identity and purpose among the citizens of a country” and that, “Much more work remains to be done for nation-building is an endless task.” The magnificence of young Bahamian talent was sufficiently showcased as participants and audience enjoyed cultural musical selections by The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra and The National Boys Choir. It is indeed an endless task as new generations of Bahamians will continue to shape the bright future of The Bahamas. As The Governor General commented, “They too must share in the process of continuing the building of our nation, and it is our duty to pass on to them the established values and principles of our Nation.” In closing, Dame Marguerite, in the company of the young Bahamian moderators, was ceremoniously greeted by members of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force and the Royal Bahamas Police Force carrying the Bahamian Flag. Together, they hoisted the Flag in the centre of the square. Everyone in attendance then sang the National Anthem. As Bahamian pride filled the atmosphere, Dame Marguerite advised, “We must fully commit ourselves to maintain this precious land as a free and Independent nation where we live together in love and unity.” She ended by heartily wishing The Bahamas a happy 44thIndependence Anniversary.

Local officials are waiting to consider a series of recommendations to preserve training activities at Fort Bragg, N.C., as the post’s latest joint land use study nears completion. On Thursday the study’s sponsor, the Regional Land Use Advisory Commission, heard draft recommendations, including disclosing military impacts to property during real estate transactions, supporting regional efforts to ensure the adequate supply and quality of drinking water sources, and discouraging incompatible growth in critical areas. The recommendations fall into four categories — regional coordination, compatible growth, environmental and actions Fort Bragg can pursue on its own, reported the Fayetteville Observer. A final version of the study and its recommendations are expected to be available later this year.Photo by John Snyder Dan Cohen AUTHOR
