|ICANN Postpones Amazon Domain Decision, Crusade Continues Between Amazon Nations and Amazon Inc. Cache Translate Page|
ICANN on Monday extended the deadline to April for Amazon basin nations to reach a deal with the tech giant Amazon Inc in their seven-year battle over the .amazon domain name. Reuters reports: "[ICANN] meeting this week in Kobe, Japan, decided to put off a decision that was expected to favor use of the domain by the world's largest online retailer. Amazon basin countries Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana and Suriname have fought the domain request since it was made in 2012, arguing that the name refers to their geographic region and thus belongs to them."
— Amazon nations remain "firmly opposed" to Amazon Inc gaining exclusive control of the domain name, says Brazil's foreign ministry. He adds: "Brazil and its seven Amazon partners will continue to negotiate in good faith with Amazon.com to try to reach a 'mutually acceptable solution' to the domain dispute."
— Supporting .Amazon domain strengthens global internet cooperation, says Christian Dawson of i2Coalition: "Though we should all be sympathetic to the position of the governments of Brazil and Peru, we should also be impressed with the extensive efforts that Amazon has undertaken in order to assuage as many of those concerns as possible. They have made formal signed commitments to not use the TLDs in a confusing manner. They have promised to support future gTLD applications to represent the region using the geographic terms of the regions, including .AMAZONIA, .AMAZONICA or .AMAZONAS. They also offered to reserve for the relevant governments certain domain names that could cause confusion or touch on national sensitivities.

|Skerritt’s swipe Cache Translate Page|
Cricket West Indies (CWI) is becoming a “Cameron-centric organization” and less of a cricket-centric entity. That's the view of Ricky Skerritt who is challenging Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron for the post of president of the governing body of cricket in the region.
In an address last night to a gathering of cricket administrators, stakeholders and fans at the Errol Barrow Centre For Creative Imagination, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Skerritt said he and his running mate Dr Kishore Shallow had prepared a ten-point plan they believed could become the guide for the pathway forward for West Indies cricket along with inputs from stakeholders across the region.
[caption id="attachment_291549" align="aligncenter" width="600"] (From right) Ricky Skerritt and Dr Kishore Shallow at last night’s discussion with facilitator David Ellis and the UWI’s Amanda Reifer.[/caption]
“I am sure that we can fine-tune this plan to even more simple language to ensure that the C in CWI actually stands for the word cricket. Sadly, it has been my experience that CWI is rapidly becoming more of a Cameron-centric organization and less of a cricket-centric organization. Now, what do we mean when we say that CWI is becoming Cameron-centric? This is not disrespect for Cameron. I am simply speaking the truth. In short, it means the needs and fancy of Cameron have become bigger and more important than our cricketers and various indicators have shown me that the politics of survival in the office of the president matters more to him at this time than our cricket.
“Other indicators tell me cricket matters less than the president entertaining and traveling. The performance of the elite teams matters only when they win, and the answer to losing a series is to fire the coaches no matter what are the financial implications,” Skerritt told the audience that included vice-president of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) Calvin Hope, Board members Timothy Boyce, E. Betty Lewis Browne and Ignatius Marshall, former president E.K. “Tony” Marshall, ex-Barbados captains Philo Wallace and Kirk Edwards, Steven Leslie, the director of cricket at the BCA and Edison James who served as Prime Minister of Dominica from 1995 to 2000.
Skerritt, who is an independent director of CWI, said he wanted to make it absolutely clear that his principal reason for seeking the presidency of CWI was to help find sustainable solutions to the challenges facing West Indies cricket.
He charged that under Cameron's tenure as leader of CWI, Increasing the peril was more urgent than rebuilding relationships with the stakeholders, and relationships only mattered with those who said “yes” and agreed with Cameron.
“Those who doubt and question Cameron's decisions quickly become enemies of CWI. In the Cameron-centric culture governance only matters when it can be sidestepped and power is only useful when it can be sidestepped beyond that mandate of articles of association,” the former manager of the West Indies cricket team said.
Skerritt, a past tourism minister in St Kitts and Nevis said his purpose for making the presentation was not to attack Cameron but to put forward positive ideas to take West Indies cricket forward beyond March 24 - the day of the election. He listed some of the ideas he and Shallow were articulating to chart a new path for cricket.
Among them are the creation of a cricket-centered culture, optimum use of technology for greater effectiveness, an increase in grassroots cricket, the enhancement of the franchise system, modernization of coaching education, increased exposure for the Under-19 and Under-23 players, reevaluation of the system of team selections and the reparation of stakeholder relations.
Shallow said the opportunity for he and Skerritt to make their presentation to the BCA came about after initial rejection but had turned out to be a blessing in disguise because rather than addressing just nine members of the BCA's board, they were now speaking to a cross section of the Barbadian public and several persons around the world via the live stream.
The election to choose a president and vice-president of CWI takes place in Jamaica this month-end. Skerritt and Shallow will battle for the two top positions in West Indies cricket against Cameron and current vice-president of CWI Emmanuel Nanthan of Dominica.
Cameron has already garnered the support of the BCA board, as well as those of the Windward Islands and Guyana in the lead-up to the elections, while the boards of Trinidad and Tobago and the Leeward Islands are throwing their support behind Skerritt and Shallow. The direction of the vote of the Jamaica board is not known but could prove critical to the outcome of the election. The Jamaica board is headed by president Billy Heaven who reportedly has not always seen 'eye to eye' with Cameron.

|La prensa boricua resalta película dominico-boricua Cache Translate Page|
Molusco, Fausto Mata, Tony Pascual y Aquiles Correa nos hablan de "Los Domirriqueños 2"
La película estrenará este jueves en las salas de cine boricuas
La secuela de la película más taquillera filmada en Puerto Rico, regresa esta semana a la pantalla grande con mayores enredos, risas y anécdotas desde la carpa de un circo.
Esta vez la trama de “Los Domirriqueños 2” gira en torno al sobresaliente grupo de dominicanos y puertorriqueños que tras convertirse en el equipo ganador de baloncesto, necesitan recaudar fondos para pagar una demanda en la que están involucrados. La comedia que ingenia situaciones inesperadas lleva a los personajes a adentrarse a una carpa de un circo chino para sustituir el talento circense.
Actos inimaginables en el malabarismo, acrobacia, magia y todo lo que sucede en un circo serán recreados por los actores dominicanos Tony Pascual “Pachulí”, Fausto Mata, Aquiles Correa y los puertorriqueños Jorge Pabón “Molusco”, Carlos Vega, Alejandro Gil y Eugenio Monclova. A la nueva trama se integran las actrices Alba Nydia Díaz y Stephany Liriano y Los Pichys Boys.
“En el circo hay todo tipo de acróbatas, malabaristas, magos y hay de todo lo que se ve en el circo. Puede ver a Molusco tirándose de un cañón bien grande a Fausto haciendo otra cosa, pero lo más importante es que se van a reír desde el principio y es una comedia familiar que vuelve a presentar la unión de los puertorriqueños y de los dominicanos”, reveló Pascual, acompañado de sus colegas Correa, Mata y Pabón.
El locutor del programa radial “Los reyes de la punta” de la Mega narró entre risas que lo difícil del rodaje de la película en Juncos fue realizarlo dentro de la carpa de circo por el calor que hacía. Igual destacó que todas las actuaciones las hicieron ellos y que en su caso lo verán cruzar una cuerda floja, escena que al parecer será épica en el largometraje dirigido por Eduardo “Transfor” Ortiz.
“Cada rodaje tiene su magia, pero todos son difíciles por las horas que hay que dedicarle. La escena del circo fue complicada por el calor, el maquillaje y que no se puede usar el aire por el sonido. Era un calor horrible, pero lo logramos y el resultado final será del agrado del público que lo que desea es reír”, indicó Aquiles meintras el resto de los actores coincidió en que cada personaje tuvo que enfrentar sus propios retos durante la filmación.
El elenco, aunque está consciente que no siempre las secuelas logran el triunfo de las primeras partes, los actores confían en contar con un gran respaldo de la audiencia, ya que se trata de una historia original, divertida y con la certeza del éxito que trae consigo las actuaciones de los reconocidos dominicanos Mata, Pascual y Aquiles.
“Creo que aparte de la unión del humor dominicano, que aquí nos fue muy bien desde Sanky Panky, y el humor boricua, está la presencia de figuras queridas de aquí (Puerto Rico). En "Los Domirriqueños 1" estaba Danilo Beauchamp, Raúl Carbonel y Antonio Sánchez “El Gángster” y fue algo novedoso el tener os a ellos en la pantalla grande", indicó Aquiles a El Nuevo Día.
“Nos sentimos muy orgullosos del éxito alcanzado con los Domirriqueños en el 2015, y esta vez esperamos volver a cautivar al público con una propuesta súper entretenida, visualmente rica y con todo el colorido de un circo como el público se merece”, añadió el productor ejecutivo del filme, Carlos Nido.
La película estrena este próximo jueves en las salas de cine de Puerto Rico y el 21 de marzo en República Dominicana y el 29 de marzo en los mercados de Estados Unidos.
La casa productora es Piñolywood Studios, la misma de los filmes “Vico C”, “Sanky Panky 3”, “Una Boda en Castañer y “Pepo pa’l Senado” y "Los Domirriqueños".
El elenco se prepara esta noche para la premier del filme en los cines de Plaza de Guyanabo. (El Nuevo Día)

|Gonsalves hails LIAT rescue ‘success’ Cache Translate Page|
A financial rescue for cash-strapped regional carrier LIAT appears on the horizon - along with plans for yet another restructuring - following marathon talks at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, which ended just minutes before midnight on Monday.
Speaking to Barbados TODAY immediately after the meeting, chairman of the majority shareholding governments of LIAT, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, gave the impression that the shareholders were close to securing buy-in from the airline’s unions, even though it would call for some sacrifice on their part.
The Vincentian prime minister said: “Our meeting lasted over four hours with the union leaders, the management, the shareholders and other officials and I think we made progress and we ended the meeting all holding hands and singing ‘Bind us together, Lord”.
“I think everybody is binding to an amended restructuring plan where there is burden sharing and the employees are prepared to bear some burdens.”
Prime Minister Mia Mottley and Antiguan prime minister Gaston Browne, representing two of the four majority shareholders, attended the talks.
The workers were represented by the Leeward Islands Airline Pilots’ Association (LIALPA) and the Barbados Workers’ Union, whose representatives declined to comment until they first reported to their members.
But according to Dr Gonsalves, the extent to which workers would be expected to sacrifice is still to be determined.
He said: “The extent of what is to be borne we will know in a couple of days when they [the unions] talk to their members, but we had a very positive response,” he said.
The LIAT chairman also categorically dismissed as false, social media reports of plans to replace LIAT Chief Executive Officer Julie Reifer Jones. “I have not heard of anything. I am the chairman and if that were even on the cards somebody will tell me,” he stressed.
The Barbados meeting comes as Caribbean countries are being asked to contribute a total of $10.8 million (US$5.4 million) in emergency funding needed to keep the airline in the sky. At the same time, 11 destinations have been given until Friday, March 15, to respond to the airline’s minimal revenue guarantee (MRG) proposals.
Gonsalves said that countries, including the four major shareholders – Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines – along with Grenada, have agreed to contribute to the emergency fund.
Barbados, which has the 116 weekly departures, the highest by LIAT, is being asked to contribute $3.2 million (US$1.614 million), while Antigua and Barbuda, with 69 weekly departures, is to contribute $1.9 million (US$960,310).
Dominica is being asked to contribute $695,876 (US$347,938) in light of its 25 weekly flights, St. Vincent and the Grenadines with 52 departures per week will contribute $1.4 million (US$723,711) while Grenada, which has 35 LIAT departures per week, is being asked to contribute $974,226 (US$487,113).
In a statement following the first round of shareholder talks, held in the Vincentian capital, Kingstown, over the weekend, Dr Gonsalves made it clear that these five countries constitute an “A Group”. He added that while no other government has come forward in the face of the crisis, the shareholder governments are targetting a further three destination governments, namely Guyana (US$292,280), St. Kitts and Nevis (US$389,691) and St. Lucia (US$584,536). email@example.com
|Don’t promote Barbados-type Brexit, says political scientist Cache Translate Page|
Barbadians are being urged to stay clear of the ‘xenophobic’ rhetoric promoted by those who oppose government’s efforts to deepen regional integration.
In fact, political scientist Peter Wickham has warned that such sentiments, if allowed to fester, could trigger the type of “self harm” brought upon the British people by the 2016 Brexit referendum, when that country voted to leave the European Union.
In an interview with Barbados TODAY, the regionalist argued that Barbadians were being bombarded with misinformation from people who should know better.
“I think it’s unfortunate that it has become controversial, quite frankly. I think a lot of the people who are criticizing it ought to know better, because a single market is simply just that. You try to ensure that as people move from country to country they enjoy the same benefits and privileges, which other persons who are living here would enjoy.
“I do worry, because if these views are not kept in check, that’s ultimately where it ends and I’m hoping that as we watch the level of self-harm that the British are bringing on themselves by way of a similar level of xenophobia, it is enough to tell us to check ourselves and realize that we’re not that special.
“I fear that Barbados becomes like the United Kingdom and we bring a Brexit on ourselves on the basis of misinformation. It would be quite sad if we reach the stage where we begin to think like the British and we develop a level of xenophobia that matches theirs,” said Wickham.
Over the last few days there has been robust public debate about the implications of the CARICOM amendment bill and the Protocol of Contingent Rights which extends basic rights to the spouse, young children, and dependent parents of skilled CARICOM nationals, in the host territory, allowing them to enter and leave the country without restrictions.
Barbados has also decided to grant the children of skilled CARICOM nationals, access to both primary and secondary level education. It has also made provision for these families to access primary health care.
While some believe the amendment could result in CARICOM nationals placing an unwarranted burden on the country’s already struggling social welfare system, Wickham argued that an influx of regional migration could strengthen it.
“We are in an International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme that is brought on by the fact that our economy is under substantial pressure. One of the ways that we can grow is by reaching out to people across the region. We are in a situation where our national insurance is telling us that they are running out of resources because they’re not enough working-age people in Barbados because of the declining birthrate. Regionalism has a way of dealing with that also.
“This is the kind of logic that we need to be aware of and we need to closely monitor this proclivity or this inclination toward xenophobia that appears to have become so popular now,” he again warned.
Wickham also argued that a greater level of public awareness on the benefits of free movement within CARICOM was needed.
“If you look at education for example and
“Barbadians seem to think for some reason that their product is better. I do not understand what disparity people are speaking about. There are a lot of misunderstandings being peddled for reasons that are purely political.
“I think if the majority were able to speak you would see an entirely different situation consistent with research that I would have done back in the early 2000’s.
“I think we are completing a circle which we have already started. We started the process back in the 1960’s with CARIFTA and then you go to the CARICOM single market agreement that was signed back in 2004. I think that it is necessary to complete it.”
Wickham added: “Perhaps it might be a wise thing for people to get out and look around the region and see what is on offer and try to understand a bit better before rushing to judgment about something on which they know nothing.”

|Sodomy Laws in the US and around the World Cache Translate Page|
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral. Sodomy typically includes anal sex, oral sex and bestiality. In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples (Wikipedia)
Sodomy arrest sparks controversy… 34 years ago
Michael Hardwick is arrested for sodomy after a police officer observes him having sex with another man in his own bedroom in Georgia. Although the district attorney eventually dropped the charges, Hardwick decided to challenge the constitutionality of Georgia’s law.
“John and Mary Doe,” who joined in Hardwick’s suit against Michael Bowers, the attorney general of Georgia, maintained that the Georgia law “chilled and deterred” them from engaging in certain types of sex in their home. But in 1986, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruling by a 5-4 vote that states could continue to treat certain types of consensual sex as criminal acts.
Apparently, Justice Byron White had characterized the issue not as the right to privacy in one’s own bedroom, but rather as the right to commit sodomy. Viewed in this narrow manner, it was no surprise that he was unable to find such a clause in the Constitution. Justice Lewis Powell, who also voted to uphold the law, later called his vote a mistake.
In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law under which two men had been arrested for having consensual sex at home. The 6-3 Lawrence v. Texas decision reversed the infamous 1986 Bowers decision and finally dealt a death blow to sodomy laws throughout the country.
In its landmark ruling Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court ruled that anti-sodomy laws —sometimes referred to as “crimes against nature” laws — are unconstitutional. But 12 states continue to keep such laws on their books. Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, while anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
You may believe anti-sodomy laws are not harmful because they can’t be enforced. But they are an important symbol of homophobia for those who oppose LGBT rights. What’s more, the laws create ambiguity for police officers, who may not be aware they are unconstitutional.
If a policeman looks it up, he will see that sodomy is a violation of Louisiana state law, for example, according to Marjorie Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.
Sodomy Laws around the World
In the recent years, sodomy related laws have been repealed or judicially struck down in all of Europe, North America, and South America, except for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.
There have never been Western-style sodomy related laws in the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, or Vietnam. Additionally, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were part of the French colony of 'Indochine'; so if there had been any laws against male homosexual acts in those countries, they would have been dismantled by French colonial authorities, since male homosexual acts have been legal in France and throughout the French Empire since the issuing of the aforementioned French Revolutionary penal code in 1791.
This trend among Western nations has not been followed in all other regions of the world (Africa, some parts of Asia, Oceania and even western countries in the Caribbean Islands), where sodomy often remains a serious crime. For example, male homosexual acts, at least in theory, can result in life imprisonment in Barbados and Guyana.
In Africa, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Mauritania, Sudan, and some parts of Nigeria and Somalia. Male and sometimes female homosexual acts are minor to major criminal offences in many other African countries; for example, life imprisonment is a prospective penalty in Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda. A notable exception is South Africa, where same-sex marriage is legal.
In Asia, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; but anti-sodomy laws have been repealed in Israel (which recognizes but does not perform same-sex marriages), Japan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and Thailand. Additionally, life imprisonment is the formal penalty for male homosexual acts in Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Qatar.

|Comment on Don’t promote Barbados-type Brexit, says political scientist by Tennyson Drakes Cache Translate Page||People the word is "parity". That is what is required before their is any justification of any free movement of people in the Caribbean. When Guyana and Jamaica dollar was worth $4.80 to the Barbados dollar it made sense for Barbadians to have gone to Guyana and possibly Jamaica. That is human nature. The main reason why it is easy for the eastern Caribbean nationals to travel freely among themselves is the parity of their currency. It is common to all of them. Also, when a glass is full and you keep on adding water, the water is only wasted. Barbados is 166 square miles. It is one of one of the most densely populated countries in the world.|

|Event Update For 2019-03-10 Cache Translate Page|
The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.
A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

|Beautiful Revolutionary by Laura Elizabeth Woollett review – inside a cult Cache Translate Page||This Australian debut novel, based on the apocalyptic religious cult that culminated in the Jonestown massacre, is supple and punchy, with a hysterical edge|
Jim Jones was an American cult leader who carried himself like Elvis and variously claimed to be the reincarnation of Lenin, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama. The Peoples Temple, the movement he founded in 1955, was his stage; America’s underclass his fanbase. Charismatic and controlling, Jones dreamed of establishing a Marxist utopia, first in the forgiving climate of 1960s California and then at a ramshackle agricultural project in the jungles of Guyana. But he ventured too far up-river, dosed himself on barbiturates and spiralled towards demagoguery. This silver-tongued advocate for social justice and racial equality is now best remembered for instigating the mass murder-suicide of 918 cult members, 304 of them children. Until the events of 9/11, the 1978 Jonestown massacre represented the largest deliberate loss of American civilian life.
Four decades on, Australian author Laura Elizabeth Woollett has interviewed the survivors for a supple, punchy debut novel – an apocalyptic eve-of-destruction saga that paints a vivid portrait of life inside the Peoples Temple. Its focus on Jones’s besotted, compromised handmaidens builds on themes explored in Woollett’s 2016 short-story collection The Love of a Bad Man (which folded Jones in with Hitler, Ian Brady and Clyde Barrow). But Beautiful Revolutionary also takes its place in a burgeoning subgenre of fact-based tales of self-styled messiahs, bunking alongside Emma Cline’s The Girls (Charles Manson), Netflix’s Wild Wild Country (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) and Quentin Tarantino’s forthcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Manson again). How to explain the popularity of these fevered tales of tribalism, gaslighting and mounting paranoia? Beautiful Revolutionary’s dark history sits securely in the past, isolated and quarantined, like a virus on a microscope slide. But it implicitly nods towards more recent convulsions.Continue reading...

|Elder Soares Visit Highlights God's Promised Blessings Being Claimed in the Caribbean Cache Translate Page||
“I see a great future for the Church in the Caribbean Area. They are good people who are dedicated to their families and their desire to serve the Lord.”Missionaries first arrived on Curaçao in 1978 and the island’s first branch was created in October of 1979. Growth followed the 1982 decision to conduct Church meetings in Papiamento. The Curaçao meetinghouse was dedicated in August 1988. Families gather for a February 17 member meeting in Santiago, Dominican Republic, presided over by Elder Ulisses Soares.“When we read in the scriptures about the ‘isles of the sea’ we tend to think of, maybe, the Pacific or other parts of the world,” said Elder Teixeira. “But the Caribbean Area is also truly the ‘isles of the sea.’ With the exception of the three countries on the northern tip of South America (Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana), everything else is an island.”During the meeting, a pair of Curaçao “pioneers”—Ingeborg Zielinski Reni and Yvonne Antersijn—shared experiences from their decades of resolute Church service and dedication in a “corner of the vineyard” still young and largely undeveloped.Dedicating the country and worshipping with the Curaçao members “was a beautiful experience,” said Elder Soares.Prior to the 1978 revelation that gave all people full access to the blessings of the priesthood and the temple, the Church was all but non-existent in the Caribbean—a region with a large population of people of African descent.“You can see the influence of these two great sisters on the island,” said Elder Soares.The February 16 leadership meetings in Santiago, Dominican Republic, offered further glimpses into the hearts, minds, and capacity of the Caribbean Area members. They are “happy people” focused on the gospel and the guidance offered by President Russell M. Nelson and their other leaders.That mixture reflects the rich wonders defining the tens of thousands of Latter-day Saints living across the vast Caribbean Area, Elder Ulisses Soares told the Church News following his recent visit to the region.Elder Soares noted the relative “newness” of the Church in the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean nations.A traveler can drop in on a Relief Society or Sunday School lesson in, say, the Dominican Republic, and hear the gospel taught in Spanish. Drive across the border into Haiti and expect to hear that same message in Haitian Creole or French.Dedicating Curaçao Elder Ulisses Soares bids farewell to Latter-day Saints who gathered for a February 21 member meeting in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.On February 20, Elder Soares dedicated the island nation of Curaçao for the preaching of the gospel. Members, missionaries, local journalists, and many others from the community gathered in the branch meetinghouse in the capital of Willemstad to listen to the visiting Apostle’s dedicatory prayer and counsel.The region’s linguistic diversity signals its rich history and culture.
