first_imgLocalNews Summer challenge & hike planned to promote healthy lifestyle by: – June 11, 2014 Manager of Image 360, Heston Charles.Vibes Radio, DA Vibes Inc and Image 360 Corporation have announced its Summer Vibes Activities.Image 360, a company that specializes in sports, imaging and sales, has partnered with DA Vibes and Vibes Radio to host a variety of exciting 2014 summer geared at promoting healthy lifestyles, fun and entertainment.These activities include a Vibes Challenge 360 and a ‘Health and Nature Vibes’ Hike.“The Vibes Challenge 360 is one of our biggest events planned for the summer. It is geared to challenge people into various sporting activities and it will be divided into four parts,” manager of Image 360, Heston Charles said.The Vibes 360 Challenge is scheduled for Sunday, 3rd of August and it is open to the 18 – 60 age group.Each business organization will be allowed to register a minimum on 2 teams and a minimum of 4 persons per teams. The teams will be put through a series of challenges; running, cycling, swimming and kayaking, and the first team to complete all challenges with all its members will win the grand prize.However, businesses are free to register three teams if they have enough staff to do so. The registration fee per team is EC$200.00.“We’re not going to sort of hide what people are going to participate in, we want to ensure that the teams have an idea of what sort of challenge they are going to participate in so they will prepare themselves for that,” Charles noted.“It’s a challenge that is really going to bring out the best in terms of physical activity, physical strength, and physical stamina,” he said.Charles also noted that the Vibes 360 Challenge is geared at encouraging team work.“On the working premises, team work is crucial and what you find the corporate community has this challenge of when people come to work they always seem to be tired, you find staff always complaining of being sick, headache and the output that you would expect from staff within the corporate community is not always up to the mark”.The prizes, although not yet finalized, will include a trophy and cash award.Additionally, on September 6, 2014, the Vibes Group of Companies will host a ‘Health and Nature Vibes’ on the Waitukubuli National Trail. The hike will include Segment 2 of the trail and the public will be invited to register and join the hike. Fans and supporters who are unable to make the hike will be able to share the experience via Vibes social media pages and Vibes Radio.Interested persons can contact Heston Charles at Image 360 (1 767 616 4229).Dominica Vibes News 16 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share Tweetlast_img read more

RCMP in Burnaby say Kinder Morgan protest camp to be dismantled

Posted On Jan 10 2020 by

first_imgBURNABY, B.C. – The RCMP arrested protesters when officers enforced a court injunction early Thursday ordering the removal of all structures from a site where the Trans Mountain pipeline ends in Burnaby.RCMP Cpl. Daniela Panesar said police began enforcing the B.C. Supreme Court injunction that was obtained by the City of Burnaby last week.“For safety reasons, we can’t have people there, so there have been arrests of people that have refused to leave,” she said in a phone interview.- Advertisement -Police “maintained a dialogue with the residents of the camp in the hopes that they would obey the injunction and vacate the location” within a 48-hour deadline set by the court, the RCMP said in a news release.That deadline passed Sunday night but protesters at the encampment, known as Camp Cloud, said Monday they were prepared to protect a sacred fire, which has been burning since the camp was set up late last year. They also said they were prepared to tie themselves to structures rather than obey the injunction.Panesar said police and the city worked together to enforce the court order and an exclusion zone, which also applied to the media, was established around the camp as the work began. She said the exclusion zone allowed city workers to bring in heavy equipment to remove structures that include a two-storey wooden building, a cabin, an outdoor shower, more than a dozen tents and multiple vehicles and trailers.Advertisement The RCMP news release said “violence or disorder” was not expected and Panesar said she had not heard of any issues during the early hours of the camp’s removal.The camp has grown since last November when opponents of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion parked a single trailer at the gates of the Kinder Morgan tank farm on Burnaby Mountain.The camp has become a rallying point for demonstrators opposed to the pipeline, which will more than triple the amount of bitumen and other oil products moving from Edmonton to Burnaby before it is shipped overseas by tanker.The federal government approved expansion of the pipeline in 2016 but environmental and B.C. government opposition led Kinder Morgan, the pipeline’s original owner, to announce it would back out of the project.Advertisement The federal government offered $4.5 billion to purchase the project and Kinder Morgan is presenting that offer to its shareholders, with expectation the sale will be approved later this month or in September. The purchase price, which includes the existing pipeline, pumping stations, rights of way, and the Westridge marine terminal in Burnaby, does not cover the construction costs of building the new pipeline, previously estimated at about $7.4 billion.last_img read more

Is the Relational Database Doomed?

Posted On Dec 17 2019 by

first_img3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now tony bain Related Posts Recently, a lot of new non-relational databases have cropped up both inside and outside the cloud. One key message this sends is, “if you want vast, on-demand scalability, you need a non-relational database”.If that is true, then is this a sign that the once mighty relational database finally has a chink in its armor? Is this a sign that relational databases have had their day and will decline over time? In this post, we’ll look at the current trend of moving away from relational databases in certain situations and what this means for the future of the relational database.Relational databases have been around for over 30 years. During this time, several so-called revolutions flared up briefly, all of which were supposed to spell the end of the relational database. All of those revolutions fizzled out, of course, and none even made a dent in the dominance of relational databases.First, Some BackgroundA relational database is essentially a group of tables (entities). Tables are made up of columns and rows (tuples). Those tables have constraints, and relationships are defined between them. Relational databases are queried using SQL, and result sets are produced from queries that access data from one or more tables. Multiple tables being accessed in a single query are “joined” together, typically by a criterion defined in the table relationship columns. Normalization is a data-structuring model used with relational databases that ensures data consistency and removes data duplication.Relational databases are facilitated through Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS). Almost all database systems we use today are RDBMS, including those of Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Sybase, DB2, TeraData, and so on.The reasons for the dominance of relational databases are not trivial. They have continually offered the best mix of simplicity, robustness, flexibility, performance, scalability, and compatibility in managing generic data.However, to offer all of this, relational databases have to be incredibly complex internally. For example, a relatively simple SELECT statement could have hundreds of potential query execution paths, which the optimizer would evaluate at run time. All of this is hidden to us as users, but under the cover, RDBMS determines the “execution plan” that best answers our requests by using things like cost-based algorithms.The Problem with Relational DatabasesEven though RDBMS have provided database users with the best mix of simplicity, robustness, flexibility, performance, scalability, and compatibility, their performance in each of these areas is not necessarily better than that of an alternate solution pursuing one of these benefits in isolation. This has not been much of a problem so far because the universal dominance of RDBMS has outweighed the need to push any of these boundaries. Nonetheless, if you really had a need that couldn’t be answered by a generic relational database, alternatives have always been around to fill those niches.Today, we are in a slightly different situation. For an increasing number of applications, one of these benefits is becoming more and more critical; and while still considered a niche, it is rapidly becoming mainstream, so much so that for an increasing number of database users this requirement is beginning to eclipse others in importance. That benefit is scalability. As more and more applications are launched in environments that have massive workloads, such as web services, their scalability requirements can, first of all, change very quickly and, secondly, grow very large. The first scenario can be difficult to manage if you have a relational database sitting on a single in-house server. For example, if your load triples overnight, how quickly can you upgrade your hardware? The second scenario can be too difficult to manage with a relational database in general.Relational databases scale well, but usually only when that scaling happens on a single server node. When the capacity of that single node is reached, you need to scale out and distribute that load across multiple server nodes. This is when the complexity of relational databases starts to rub against their potential to scale. Try scaling to hundreds or thousands of nodes, rather than a few, and the complexities become overwhelming, and the characteristics that make RDBMS so appealing drastically reduce their viability as platforms for large distributed systems.For cloud services to be viable, vendors have had to address this limitation, because a cloud platform without a scalable data store is not much of a platform at all. So, to provide customers with a scalable place to store application data, vendors had only one real option. They had to implement a new type of database system that focuses on scalability, at the expense of the other benefits that come with relational databases.These efforts, combined with those of existing niche vendors, have led to the rise of a new breed of database management system.Next page: The New BreedThe New BreedThis new kind of database management system is commonly called a key/value store. In fact, no official name yet exists, so you may see it referred to as document-oriented, Internet-facing, attribute-oriented, distributed database (although this can be relational also), sharded sorted arrays, distributed hash table, and key/value database. While each of these names point to specific traits of this new approach, they are all variations on one theme, which we’ll call key/value databases.Whatever you call it, this “new” type of database has been around for a long time and has been used for specialized applications for which the generic relational database was ill-suited. But without the scale that web and cloud applications have brought, it would have remained a mostly unused subset. Now, the challenge is to recognize whether it or a relational database would be better suited to a particular application.Relational databases and key/value databases are fundamentally different and designed to meet different needs. A side-by-side comparison only takes you so far in understanding these differences, but to begin, let’s lay one down:No Entity JoinsKey/value databases are item-oriented, meaning all relevant data relating to an item are stored within that item. A domain (which you can think of as a table) can contain vastly different items. For example, a domain may contain customer items and order items. This means that data are commonly duplicated between items in a domain. This is accepted practice because disk space is relatively cheap. But this model allows a single item to contain all relevant data, which improves scalability by eliminating the need to join data from multiple tables. With a relational database, such data needs to be joined to be able to regroup relevant attributes.But while the need for relationships is greatly reduced with key/value databases, certain ones are inevitable. These relationships usually exist among core entities. For example, an ordering system would have items that contain data about customers, products, and orders. Whether these reside on the same domain or separate domains is irrelevant; but when a customer places an order, you would likely not want to store both the customer and product’s attributes in the same order item.Instead, orders would need to contain relevant keys that point to the customer and product. While this is perfectly doable in a key/value database, these relationships are not defined in the data model itself, and so the database management system cannot enforce the integrity of the relationships. This means you can delete customers and the products they have ordered. The responsibility of ensuring data integrity falls entirely to the application. Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#enterprise Key/Value Stores: The GoodThere are two clear advantages of key/value databases to relational databases.Suitability for CloudsThe first benefit is that they are simple and thus scale much better than today’s relational databases. If you are putting together a system in-house and intend to throw dozens or hundreds of servers behind your data store to cope with what you expect will be a massive demand in scale, then consider a key/value store.Because key/value databases easily and dynamically scale, they are also the database of choice for vendors who provide a multi-user, web services platform data store. The database provides a relatively cheap data store platform with massive potential to scale. Users typically only pay for what they use, but their usage can increase as their needs increase. Meanwhile, the vendor can scale the platform dynamically based on the total user load, with little limitation on the entire platform’s size.More Natural Fit with CodeRelational data models and Application Code Object Models are typically built differently, which leads to incompatibilities. Developers overcome these incompatibilities with code that maps relational models to their object models, a process commonly referred to as object-to-relational mapping.This process, which essentially amounts to “plumbing” code and has no clear and immediate value, can take up a significant chunk of the time and effort that goes into developing the application. On the other hand, many key/value databases retain data in a structure that maps more directly to object classes used in the underlying application code, which can significantly reduce development time.Other arguments in favor of this type of data storage, such as “Relational databases can become unwieldy” (whatever that means), are less convincing. But before jumping on the key/value database bandwagon, consider the downsides.Key/Value Stores: The BadThe inherent constraints of a relational database ensure that data at the lowest level have integrity. Data that violate integrity constraints cannot physically be entered into the database. These constraints don’t exist in a key/value database, so the responsibility for ensuring data integrity falls entirely to the application. But application code often carries bugs. Bugs in a properly designed relational database usually don’t lead to data integrity issues; bugs in a key/value database, however, quite easily lead to data integrity issues.One of the other key benefits of a relational database is that it forces you to go through a data modeling process. If done well, this modeling process create in the database a logical structure that reflects the data it is to contain, rather than reflecting the structure of the application. Data, then, become somewhat application-independent, which means other applications can use the same data set and application logic can be changed without disrupting the underlying data model. To facilitate this process with a key/value database, try replacing the relational data modeling exercise with a class modeling exercise, which creates generic classes based on the natural structure of the data.And don’t forget about compatibility. Unlike relational databases, cloud-oriented databases have little in the way of shared standards. While they all share similar concepts, they each have their own API, specific query interfaces, and peculiarities. So, you will need to really trust your vendor, because you won’t simply be able to switch down the line if you’re not happy with the service. And because almost all current key/value databases are still in beta, that trust is far riskier than with old-school relational databases.Limitations on AnalyticsIn the cloud, key/value databases are usually multi-tenanted, which means that a lot of users and applications will use the same system. To prevent any one process from overloading the shared environment, most cloud data stores strictly limit the total impact that any single query can cause. For example, with SimpleDB, you can’t run a query that takes longer than 5 seconds. With Google’s AppEngine Datastore, you can’t retrieve more than 1000 items for any given query.These limitations aren’t a problem for your bread-and-butter application logic (adding, updating, deleting, and retrieving small numbers of items). But what happens when your application becomes successful? You have attracted many users and gained lots of data, and now you want to create new value for your users or perhaps use the data to generate new revenue. You may find yourself severely limited in running even straightforward analysis-style queries. Things like tracking usage patterns and providing recommendations based on user histories may be difficult at best, and impossible at worst, with this type of database platform.In this case, you will likely have to implement a separate analytical database, populated from your key/value database, on which such analytics can be executed. Think in advance of where and how you would be able to do that? Would you host it in the cloud or invest in on-site infrastructure? Would latency between you and the cloud-service provider pose a problem? Does your current cloud-based key/value database support this? If you have 100 million items in your key/value database, but can only pull out 1000 items at a time, how long would queries take?Ultimately, while scale is a consideration, don’t put it ahead of your ability to turn data into an asset of its own. All the scaling in the world is useless if your users have moved on to your competitor because it has cooler, more personalized features.Next page: Cloud-Service ContendersCloud-Service ContendersA number of web service vendors now offer multi-tenanted key/value databases on a pay-as-you-go basis. Most of them meet the criteria discussed to this point, but each has unique features and varies from the general standards described thus far. Let’s take a look now at particular databases, namely SimpleDB, Google AppEngine Datastore, and SQL Data Services.Amazon: SimpleDBSimpleDB is an attribute-oriented key/value database available on the Amazon Web Services platform. SimpleDB is still in public beta; in the meantime, users can sign up online for a “free” version — free, that is, until you exceed your usage limits.SimpleDB has several limitations. First, a query can only execute for a maximum of 5 seconds. Secondly, there are no data types apart from strings. Everything is stored, retrieved, and compared as a string, so date comparisons won’t work unless you convert all dates to ISO8601 format. Thirdly, the maximum size of any string is limited to 1024 bytes, which limits how much text (i.e. product descriptions, etc.) you can store in a single attribute. But because the schema is dynamic and flexible, you can get around the limit by adding “ProductDescription1,” “ProductDescription2,” etc. The catch is that an item is limited to 256 attributes. While SimpleDB is in beta, domains can’t be larger than 10 GB, and entire databases cannot exceed 1 TB.One key feature of SimpleDB is that it uses an eventual consistency model.This consistency model is good for concurrency, but means that after you have changed an attribute for an item, those changes may not be reflected in read operations that immediately follow. While the chances of this actually happening are low, you should account for such situations. For example, you don’t want to sell the last concert ticket in your event booking system to five people because your data wasn’t consistent at the time of sale.Google AppEngine Data StoreGoogle’s AppEngine Datastore is built on BigTable, Google’s internal storage system for handling structured data. In and of itself, the AppEngine Datastore is not a direct access mechanism to BigTable, but can be thought of as a simplified interface on top of BigTable.The AppEngine Datastore supports much richer data types within items than SimpleDB, including list types, which contain collections within a single item.You will almost certainly use this data store if you plan on building applications within the Google AppEngine. However, unlike with SimpleDB, you cannot currently interface with the AppEngine Datastore (or with BigTable) using an application outside of Google’s web service platform.Microsoft: SQL Data ServicesSQL Data Services is part of the Microsoft Azure Web Services platform. The SDS service is also in beta and so is free but has limits on the size of databases. SQL Data Services is actually an application itself that sits on top of many SQL servers, which make up the underlying data storage for the SDS platform. While the underlying data stores may be relational, you don’t have access to these; SDS is a key/value store, like the other platforms discussed thus far.Microsoft seems to be alone among these three vendors in acknowledging that while key/value stores are great for scalability, they come at the great expense of data management, when compared to RDBMS. Microsoft’s approach seems to be to strip to the bare bones to get the scaling and distribution mechanisms right, and then over time build up, adding features that help bridge the gap between the key/value store and relational database platform.Non-Cloud Service ContendersOutside the cloud, a number of key/value database software products exist that can be installed in-house. Almost all of these products are still young, either in alpha or beta, but most are also open source; having access to the code, you can perhaps be more aware of potential issues and limitations than you would with close-source vendors.CouchDBCouchDB is a free, open-source, document-oriented database. Derived from the key/value store, it uses JSON to define an item’s schema. CouchDB is meant to bridge the gap between document-oriented and relational databases by allowing “views” to be dynamically created using JavaScript. These views map the document data onto a table-like structure that can be indexed and queried.At the moment, CouchDB isn’t really a distributed database. It has replication functions that allow data to be synchronized across servers, but this isn’t the kind of distribution needed to build highly scalable environments. The CouchDB community, though, is no doubt working on this.Project VoldemortProject Voldemort is a distributed key/value database that is intended to scale horizontally across a large numbers of servers. It spawned from work done at LinkedIn and is reportedly used there for a few systems that have very high scalability requirements. Project Voldemort also uses an eventual consistency model, based on Amazon’s.Project Voldemort is very new; its website went up in only the last few weeks.MongoMongo is the database system being developed at 10gen by Geir Magnusson and Dwight Merriman (whom you may remember from DoubleClick). Like CouchDB, Mongo is a document-oriented JSON database, except that it is designed to be a true object database, rather than a pure key/value store. Originally, 10gen focused on putting together a complete web services stack; more recently, though, it has refocused mainly on the Mongo database. The beta release is scheduled for mid-February.DrizzleDrizzle can be thought of as a counter-approach to the problems that key/value stores are meant to solve. Drizzle began life as a spin-off of the MySQL (6.0) relational database. Over the last few months, its developers have removed a host of non-core features (including views, triggers, prepared statements, stored procedures, query cache, ACL, and a number of data types), with the aim of creating a leaner, simpler, faster database system. Drizzle can still store relational data; as Brian Aker of MySQL/Sun puts it, “There is no reason to throw out the baby with the bath water.” The aim is to build a semi-relational database platform tailored to web- and cloud-based apps running on systems with 16 cores or more.Making a DecisionUltimately, there are four reasons why you would choose a non-relational key/value database platform for your application:Your data is heavily document-oriented, making it a more natural fit with the key/value data model than the relational data model.Your development environment is heavily object-oriented, and a key/value database could minimize the need for “plumbing” code.The data store is cheap and integrates easily with your vendor’s web services platform.Your foremost concern is on-demand, high-end scalability — that is, large-scale, distributed scalability, the kind that can’t be achieved simply by scaling up.But in making your decision, remember the database’s limitations and the risks you face by branching off the relational path.For all other requirements, you are probably best off with the good old RDBMS. So, is the relational database doomed? Clearly not. Well, not yet at least.Top image by Tim Morgan IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more

Real Madrid reveals transfer fee for Paul Pogba

Posted On Nov 26 2019 by

first_imgImage Courtesy: ReutersAdvertisementSpanish giants Real Madrid have officially announced the fee they are ready to pay Manchester United for the willing Paul Pogba, and its a whopping €120m, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.Image Courtesy: ReutersThe 2018 World Cup winner had a mediocre season at Old Trafford, and is dead set to have a move away from the club. Despite netting the ball 16 times, Pogba was criticised for his fallout with former United boss Jose Mourinho.“After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well… I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.” the Frenchman said during United’s promotional tour to Japan.“I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great – some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody and like everywhere else.“There is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking,” the 26-year-old told reporters in Tokyo on Sunday.Should Pogba move on to Santiago Bernabéu, the Red Devils are likely to ask a higher fee than they spent on the midfielder in 2016: a then world record £89 million.Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has shown an interest to bring his countryman to the Spanish capital, while Juventus are looking to get their former superstar back, and is ready to increase the wage if required.Advertisementlast_img read more

2018 a Year of Contrasts for Tallink

Posted On Oct 23 2019 by

first_imgzoomIllustration; Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC 2.0 license In 2018, Estonian shipping company Tallink Grupp transported the highest ever number of passengers and cargo but saw a decrease in its revenue and profit.The total number of passengers increased to 9.8 million in 2018, which is nearly 900 passengers more than in the previous year.A more significant increase was recorded in the number of cargo units transported by the group. The number of cargo units rose by 5.7% to 385,000.As informed, Tallink Grupp’s passenger numbers increased on nearly all the group’s routes and the number of cargo units transported increased on all the routes, with record numbers of passengers and cargo being transported on the Estonia-Finland routes and Estonia-Sweden routes, and the largest ever number of passengers transported also on the Latvia-Sweden route in 2018.Despite the records achieved, the group’s revenue and profit were impacted by higher fuel costs, lower charter revenue and a longer-than-planned docking of one of the group’s vessels in spring 2018.The group’s unaudited consolidated revenue decreased by 1.8% in 2018 to EUR 949.7 million from EUR 967 million in 2017. In addition, Tallink’s net profit for the financial year was EUR 40 million, compared to EUR 46.5 million seen in 2017. However, the total revenue from the group’s route operations increased in 2018 by EUR 0.7 million and amounted to EUR 883.7 million.„2018 was a year of some contrasts for Tallink Grupp. On the one hand we achieved a number of records in terms of passenger numbers, cargo units and numbers of trips completed by our vessels. I am particularly pleased that the Estonia-Finland routes, with significant competitive pressures and other challenges on the route, have seen passenger numbers increase and even produce all-time records,” Paavo Nõgene, Tallink Grupp’s CEO, commented.„On the other hand, several factors negatively influenced our financial results, so our total outcome for the year was not record-breaking. One of the factors was the reduction of charter revenues by EUR 10.8 million compared to 2017, as we had only one vessel chartered out instead of three in the previous year,” he explained.“However, it is clear that the biggest impact on our profits last year came from significantly increased fuel costs, which were EUR 16.6 million higher than in 2017. We are, of course, taking a number of steps to reduce the impact of the global price fluctuations on our business, but fuel costs will inevitably always form a significant part of our costs,” Nõgene added.The group’s total investments in 2018 amounted to EUR 36.4 million with several of Tallink’s ships receiving both technical upgrades and as well as updates to passenger areas and cabins onboard.AS Tallink Grupp provides passenger and cargo transportation services in the Northern region of the Baltic Sea. The company owns 14 vessels and operates under the brands of Tallink and Silja Line on seven different routes.Related:Tallink Grupp Vessel Joins Research Project for Autonomous Shipslast_img read more

Premier Talks tough on Clement Howell High Condition

Posted On Sep 17 2019 by

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 30 Sept 2014 – The Premier talking tough last week about the conditions at Clement Howell High School; the country’s leader who was obviously not aware of the dilapidated state of some parts of the campus got an up close look when he participated in a clean-up day during National Youth Week. He said: “The buildings… cannot inspire or foster any positive outcomes when our people, our children, our future are left to meet mold and rust and broken desks, windows and chairs day after day.” It echoed the sentiments of many residents. Hon Dr Rufus Ewing calling on Government Support Services and UK Advisor Norman Watts, to step up to the plate and get the school in better shape… quick to clarify that his critique should not be interpreted as disappointment in his Minister but as a call for the grounds to be improved for the over 1,000 first through fifth formers. Not all the country’s leader was on about in a media release yesterday… announcing that he stands with his Government Support Services minister, Hon George Lightbourne who last week may have gotten himself into some hot water when he disputed the salary of Norman Watts, who is paid around $100,000 per year. Lightbourne and others believe Watts’ time with government is up and the money for his salary would be better used elsewhere. The Governor, His Excellency Peter Beckingham issued statement to say the Minister and House of Assembly Members are not allowed to give direction on who works in TCIG, that that is his job as head of the public sector. The Premier making it clear though, that “ While the Public Service Ordinance governs Ministerial involvement in appointments to the Public Service, prudence dictates that in matters of significant financial implications such as this, that there be collaboration … such decision is also a matter of policy and the views of the Minister should have been taken into consideration instead of being simply ignored.” Eagles win again at InterHigh Championships Recommended for you PNP Convention Feb 19 Weekend; South Caicos woman announces at large interest Related Items:clement howell high school, george lightbourne, norman watts, peter beckingham, rufus ewing Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp NEW CHAIRMAN, PNP keeps Ewinglast_img read more
