The Latest from Jamaica!


Opposition names Shadow Cabinet

Well the general elections in Jamaica are now history (thankfully).

The JLP defeated the PNP to take charge of the affairs of the nation. Please see my page on the 2007 Election for more.

Now opposition leader, Portia Simpson Miller has named St. Ann South East, Member of Parliament (MP) Lisa Hanna and Central Manchester MP Peter Bunting to the list of 15 spokespersons for the party.

Miss Hanna, a newcomer to representational politics, will shadow the portfolio of information and youth, while Mr. Bunting has been asked to speak on matters relating to industry and commerce.

$Billion 'Bridge Rehabilitation' under way
The National Works Agency has commenced work under its $1.2 billion R.A. Murray Bridge Programme. Under this programme, 19 new bridges are to be constructed in 12 parishes across the island.

Bridges to be replaced under the billion-dollar programme are that at Milk River, in Clarendon, Black River in Portland; Queens River, Hanover; Martha Brae and Troy in Trelawny; and Seven Rivers in St James.

New structures are also expected to be built at Johnson River in St. Thomas, Waterloo Road in St. Andrew, Bog Walk in St.Catherine and Angels River in Clarendon.

National Hurricane Clean-Up Project kicked off

Today, September 30 and yesterday, were designated as a national day for clean up after Hurricane Dean's passing.

You will recall I said that most of the island was spared, but there is still some work to be done, especially in the areas most affected.

Chief Executive Officer of the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica (PSOJ), Sandra Glasgow, had appealed for members of the PSOJ to make contributions to the cause.

From yesterday's report, a lot was achieved.

A more 'Welcoming' Homepage

If you came back anytime during the last few days you would have noticed that I added a 'Welcome to Jamaica' on the homepage.

It took up more space, yes, but I genuinely wanted to give my visitors a feel of the true 'sprit of Jamaica' the minute they come home (to the homepage).

Notice, I have also highlighted Columbus' quotation about Jamaica!

More captivating pages...

    And this time, videos will show you!

    One of the most respected online marketers, and my business partner, Neil Shearing, has just released an incredible set of videos.

    I strongly urge you to check them out here

    Why should you take a look? Well, Neil is an expert at creating Passive Cashflow. That means, he sets up a revenue stream and then forgets about it... while it keeps putting money into his back account. Neil says this is the only way for lazy people, like him, to get rich online. :-)

    In one example, he shows how he earned $82.95 from Adsense in just one day, from one website which he claims builds itself!

    In another example he'll show you how he's still earning money from a site he set up which has earned him $30,240 over seven years!- How many people do you know who have been earning "hands free" money online for that long?

    There are other examples... one autoresponder put an extra $8,257 pure profit into his hands with no effort... one affiliate program paid him $26,704 passive income in a year.

    You see, there are lots of people who talk nonsense about making money online, but Neil isn't one of them. He's been earning cash online for over ten YEARS and all his products are of tried and tested, proven techniques.

    Check out Neil's videos on creating passive cashflow right now, while you're thinking about it.

    By the way, I am proud to say that Neil Shearing's Home Business Opportunities is one of the Top 3 affiliate programs that are making money for me on this website.
