Trump's rhetoric on North Korea ?makes people nervous? but actions are positive: former US envoy

A former U.S. envoy said President Trump's aggressive rhetoric toward North Korea over its nuclear program "makes people nervous," but he praised some of the administration's actions in response to the North Korean threat as encouraging. Christopher Hill, former U.S. ambassador to the Republic of Korea, told ABC News' Martha Raddatz on “This Week” Sunday that he thinks President Trump "is trying to out-North Korean the North Koreans" with his tough rhetoric. "Let’s see if that works," Hill said. "Certainly it makes people nervous when they’re not quite sure what he means by it. And, you know, great powers can’t really bluff. So when you talk in those terms, you’ve got to be prepared to back it up. And I guess that’s what worries people the most." Hill added that he appreciates that President Trump has understood that North Korea’s nuclear program “is a major issue" and that the administration has made encouraging moves, including Vice President Mike Pence's trip to the Asia-Pacific...

[allAfrica] Progress in the fight against extreme poverty in Africa has been way too slow. Although the poverty rate has declined from 54 percent in 1990 to 41 percent in 2015, a rapid population growth of 2.6 percent per year has offset these gains, resulting in 130 million more poor people. Today more than half of the world's 725 million people living in extreme poverty are in Africa. The war against poverty will be won or lost in Africa. And it must be won.

Former Post Office worker charged with defrauding govt.

Former Post Office employee Darnell Kemp Lightbourne and businessman Quinton Ewing were arraigned in a magistrate?s court today with defrauding the government of more than $80,000 over a six-month period.

Lightbourne, 47, and Ewing, 49, were both charged with seven counts of fraud. Police believe Lightbourne and Ewing carried out the crimes between September 2016 and March 2017.

Lightbourne was also charged with seven counts of falsification of accounts. She was an accounting officer at the Post Office. It is alleged that she falsified payment records in relation to ABC Security Company, which is owned by Ewing.

Lighbourne and Ewing pleaded not guilty to the charges.

They were remanded to prison.

The trial date is set for November 9.

Cooper: Govt wasted money

Cooper: Govt wasted money

Shadow Minister of Finance Chester Cooper claims the government made an ?egregious and expensive error? when it decided to renew the Caribbean Catastrophic Risk Insurance Facility (CCRIF) policy the former administration dropped.

Cooper said because the government will only receive a payout of $234,000 after paying an annual premium of $2.6 million, The Bahamas will lose out.

?I am intimately familiar with the insurance industry, and it is a ridiculous notion that you will renegotiate a policy that has already taken effect with a potentially significant claim pending,? Cooper said.

He was responding to comments Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Peter Turnquest made last week that the government wants to renegotiate the way payouts from the Caribbean disaster insurance facility are triggered by dividing The Bahamas into zones.

Cooper said, ?Perhaps the minister intends to negotiate better terms on the next policy.

?However, this begs [a] question: Why did the Minnis administration not properly assess and negotiate the current policy before signing it?

?On the face of it, it appears, in a time when the Free National Movement is preaching fiscal discipline and trimming government expenditure, the Minnis administration negotiated a deal that cost The Bahamas some $2.4 million it may never recoup.

?We look forward to the government explaining the circumstances of the current CCRIF in full view of the public, given its commitment to transparency and accountability.

?It appears that in the new government?s haste to find a smoking gun, it made an egregious and expensive error to which they must be held to account.

?The PLP supports identifying suitable mitigating strategies to natural disasters, given that we live in a hurricane zone.

?We anticipate that the government will be able to design over time an appropriate facility drawing on the expertise resident in the private insurance sector.?

On Thursday, Turnquest told The Nassau Guardian that the government must take the risks associated with the insurance premium in order to protect its assets.

In a press release on Wednesday, the CCRIF announced that Hurricane Irma triggered payments of approximately US$29.6 million, with The Bahamas receiving $234,000.

The insurance facility explained that the calculations for The Bahamas were not made based on the impact of Irma, but on the aggregate deductible cover (ADC).

During the budget debate, Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis revealed that following Hurricane Matthew, The Bahamas would have received a payout amounting to about $32 million, which would have been the single largest payout to a country from the CCRIF.

However, The Bahamas missed out on receiving this payment from the CCRIF because the Christie administration did not pay the premium.

Opposition Leader Philip Brave Davis defended the former administration?s decision to withdraw from CCRIF, saying it was advised that it was unlikely that The Bahamas would benefit from it.

In his statement, Cooper said,??Though the prime minister has promised to table information regarding the low payout by and apparently exorbitant premium paid to the CCRIF with respect to this budget cycle and Hurricane Irma, there are some critical questions that bear asking.

?First, of course, is the essential question: How much was paid for the latest annual premium?

?I understand that the amount paid exceeds $2.6 million, which would be more than double what the Christie administration last paid before cancelling the policy ? a move the Minnis administration has been highly critical of.

?Second: Why was the policy continued, despite the advice of experts that it [should] not, without further examination of the risks versus benefits?

?Third: Why does the minister of finance now say he will seek to renegotiate the terms of the policy after having already paid for the contracted policy?

?Fourthly: If it is a group policy, how does the minister anticipate being able to negotiate the terms more favorable to The Bahamas than its joint-insureds??

Murders up 40%

Murders up 40%

The murder count for 2017 reached triple digits over the weekend after a gunman shot a 17-year-old boy while he was walking with another individual on Johnson Road shortly after 6 p.m. on Saturday.

According to reports, two men in a gray vehicle pulled up alongside the teenager and shot him before speeding off.

He died in hospital. The other person was unharmed.

There have been 100 murders for the year, according to The Nassau Guardian?s records.

This represents a more than 40 percent increase in murders, compared to the same period in 2016.

As of September 16, 2016, there were 72 murders.

There were 111 murders last year, down 23 percent, compared to the previous year.

The murder count for 2017 is on par with the record set in 2015.

That year, there were 146 murders.

Up to September 16, 2015, there were 107 murders.

This is the second teenager killed on New Providence in the last week.

A 16-year-old boy was shot dead behind a home on Brice Street, Fox Hill, around 11:30 p.m. last Tuesday.

Last Monday, a gunman shot two men in Garden Villas, Grand Bahama, killing one of them.

Since earlier this year, some analysts predicted there would be another murder record this year.

With more than three months remaining, authorities will be challenged to curb the trend.

Minister of National Security Marvin Dames is expected to make a communication to Parliament on?Wednesday to expound some of the strategies his ministry has implemented to fight crime, how the ministry will improve efficiency and accountability in the Royal Bahamas Police Force and the way the organization collects data.

While murders have notably trended upward this year, the overall crime trends remain unclear.

In the face of a recent murder in August, Dames announced several strategies to address crime in the short and medium-term.

Key among them are a pledge to increase intelligence operations to disrupt gangs; adopt a more aggressive approach to shutting down drug houses; increase closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance in crime hot spots and establish a national crime prevention and neighborhood watch council, which is expected to facilitate the creation of more community-based crime watch groups.

At the time, murders were up 39 percent, compared to the same period last year.

The minister has also said he intends to establish crime reduction goals in various categories of crime.

He has repeated that while some of law enforcement?s short-term crime-fighting strategies have begun to yield results, any significant reduction in crime in the country will not happen overnight.

Standing beside Grenada Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell, chairman of the Caribbean Community CARICOM), Minnis said the Caribbean suffered a massive blow from Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, which claimed more than 60 lives ? 38 in the Caribbean and 23 in the United States.

Mitchell, CARICOM Secretary General Irwin LaRocque and other senior representatives of CARICOM met with Minnis at the British Colonial Hilton on Saturday.

Underscoring the region?s vulnerability to climate change in a press briefing, Minnis said, ?Their visit here is especially significant, because what it points out is that the strength of hurricanes [is] becoming more aggressive.

?We must consider with time how we are going to embark on, if necessary, a time may come, [for] Caribbean-type evacuations, to ensure safety of all of our Caribbean nations and every individual within the territory, especially [because] we are a growing nation ? the entire Caribbean nation ? we are growing, and it is essential for us to protect the future of the Caribbean.

?In order to protect it, we must ensure [its] safety, especially from the psychological trauma and insult that can occur as a result of hurricanes, not necessarily death as we know it in the true sense, but the psychological death, which can be even more devastating than death as we know it in the true sense.

?We can have an entire generation lost, and they are here to ensure that we are all on board; trying to save the future of the Caribbean, and understanding how to protect ourselves moving forward.?

Minnis pointed to Irma?s impact in the southern islands of The Bahamas like Ragged Island, which was deemed uninhabitable in the storm?s wake.

The small island has fewer than 70 residents.

?The Caribbean suffered similar... devastation,? Minnis said.

?They (CARICOM officials) are on a fact-finding mission to make a determination as to how we can rebuild, not The Bahamas, but the entire Caribbean, and how we can help each other.?

At its peak, Irma raged over Antigua, St. Martin, St. Barts, Anguilla, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos and parts of The Bahamas with record winds of over 180 miles per hour.

Several of these Caribbean islands were flattened.

Irma also battered Cuba?s coast, killing at least 10 people, according to international reports.

Mitchell said Irma impacted more countries in the Caribbean than any other hurricane before it.

He said the region has a loud collective voice, but questioned the ?collective listening voice? when it comes to climate change.

?In this age of science and technology it is kind of surprising that anyone with any serious position can be talking about climate change is a hoax,? he said.

?This is frightening because it is there, and a practicable demonstration is every single [storm]; it is right in front of us.

?So, clearly we will be; I?know your prime minister, myself and other colleagues, I know that is going to be the talking point.

?As I mentioned at the conference in October with the World Bank and all the institutions ? financial and otherwise ? will be in Washington, and we will use another forum to make that case as strong as possible.?

LaRocque echoed that climate change is present, and the region must come together to support nation states amid these kinds of disasters.

The issue of climate change has been hard to miss, as it has been divisive.

Mainstream scientific institutions accept global warming as a real occurrence.

Looking at The Bahamas? closest neighbor, the United States, there is a divide with skeptics on one side and believers on the next.

U.S. President Donald Trump previously called climate change a "hoax" perpetrated by the Chinese.

Despite back- to-back storms ??Hurricanes Irma and Harvey ? dealing widespread damage in Texas and Florida, Trump told U.S. media on Friday there have been larger storms recorded in the 30s and 40s, dodging climate change questions.

Minnis indicated that a greater appeal will be made to developed nations on this matter and to commit more funds for disaster aid.

?I hope they would see what we are talking about, because it is a serious problem, especially here in The Bahamas, where our GDP is greatly affected,? the prime minister said.

Notwithstanding the assistance from the international community, Mitchell added that Caribbean nations must help each other.

?We need to do everything we can to make each other feel we are there for them, and as the prime minister would know, we had an emergency meeting of heads in a video conference, and we agreed that we start a... conference very soon in the region, which looks at raising resources from inside and outside the region for the entire reconstruction effort of the countries affected,? he said.

?That should be done very soon.?

Climate change was a familiar speaking point for former Prime Minister Perry Christie, a former CARICOM chairman, both at home and on the international stage.

He consistently emphasized the need to mitigate against the posed risk of global warming and the potentially devastating blow.

Maria could pose threat to Bahamas

Maria could pose threat to Bahamas

While some people are still dealing with the devastation left behind by Hurricane Irma that passed through the southeastern Bahamas earlier this month, officials are ?closely monitoring? Tropical Storm Maria, which is projected to take a similar path.

Veteran meteorologist Wayne Neely said The Bahamas could be impacted by Maria as early as this week.

?On the forecast track, it should take it just over the southeast Bahamas sometime around Friday afternoon,? Neely said yesterday.

?We have it as a major hurricane.

?On that track, we have it coming over Puerto Rico and perhaps over Hispaniola, which means that it might be dissipated by the mountains of those two countries.

?But presently, we still have it as a major hurricane, which is expected to be Category 3 or higher.

?That is definitely not good for us. It?s not good for The Bahamas.

?I advise all Bahamians to continuously monitor the progress of the storm, because it could impact The Bahamas by the weekend.?

The storm was moving at 15 miles per hour yesterday with winds at 65 miles per hour.

Forecasters believe it could grow into a ?dangerous major hurricane? Category 3 or stronger, as it passes through the northeast Caribbean Islands by midweek due to a combination of low wind shear, a moist atmosphere and warm ocean temperatures.

Less than two weeks ago, Hurricane Irma impacted Mayaguana, Acklins, Crooked Island, Inagua, Long Cay, Ragged Island and Bimini.

After the storm, Ragged Island was deemed uninhabitable. Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis said it was unlike anything he had ever seen.

In Salina Point, Acklins, many residents lost their homes and businesses.

Other islands were also damaged.

More than 1,000 people were evacuated from those islands to New Providence.

Across the Caribbean and Florida, more than 30 deaths were reported as a result of Irma. There were no deaths reported in The Bahamas.

While Neely reminded that the storm?s path can change before Friday, he said, ?In terms of on the track now, it has it... impacting Turks and Caicos Islands and Inagua again sometime on Friday afternoon.?

He said, ?It is unusual to be impacted by two hurricanes in one season.

?This will be the first time since 1933 that, that has happened.

?It?s unusual, and it is not a good thing.

?Hurricanes devastate countries in significant ways.

?Two hurricanes in one season would be a burden on the government.?

Neely said while the storm is expected to strengthen, it is too early to say whether evacuations would be necessary.

National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Director Captain Stephen Russell said, ?We are monitoring the system at the time, and that?s it.

?No discussion has been made with the government as yet in terms of evacuation for the islands that may be threatened.?

Students from storm-damaged islands...

Students from storm-damaged islands being placed in other schools

Minister of Education Jeffrey Lloyd said yesterday the students on the Family Islands whose schools were damaged by Hurricane Irma earlier this month are being placed in several schools on New Providence.

?They are being absorbed,? Lloyd said. ?They have been absorbed.?

He said, ?Really only three islands had damage to schools, and they are Ragged Island, of course, Salina Point (Acklins) and Bimini.

?Bimini is going to be up and running within this week.

?Ragged Island students have been absorbed. Students are being absorbed.

?They are being placed in schools in the areas where they are staying with their families.?

Lloyd could not say how many students are being absorbed.

He also did not give an estimate on the cost to repair the damaged buildings, as they are ?still being assessed?.

Hurricane Irma impacted Mayaguana, Acklins, Crooked Island, Inagua, Long Cay, Ragged Island and Bimini.

Ragged Island was deemed uninhabitable.

In Salina Point, Acklins, many lost their homes and businesses due to flooding and other structural damage.

More than 1,000 people were evacuated from the impacted islands before the storm.

Most have returned.
