IS IT OKAY TO SNOOP

By JEFFARAH GIBSON

Tribune Features Writer

LEON Walker thought he was only validating his suspicions of his wife's affair when he went through her e-mails. But little did he know the possibility of facing five years in prison for snooping existed.

In this potential precedent-setting case which broke late last year, the Michigan man who is also a computer technician is being charged with felony misuse of a computer. Prosecutors in the case argue that Walker illegally hacked into his wife's computer after she filed for divorce.

However, he claims it was relatively easy to get the password to her account because she kept it in book next to her computer. His attorney said claims made b ...

A whole new world

It's a newer and brighter day for the students at the Salvation Army's Erin H. Gilmour School for the Blind.  After months of renovations to the Salvation Army's headquarters on Mackey Street a permanent facility on Ivanhoe Road has recently been established for the 18 blind and visually impaired students attending the institute and the good news does not end there.  The school recently received five new desktop computers from Scotiabank, which answered the wish of school administrators as they had been wishing for new computers for the students for quite a while.
For 15-year-old Ashley Deleveaux, it was a dream come true when she found out she would be working with new computers.
"I was really glad to hear we would be using new computers that were donated to the school.  I have a computer at home but I don't have the program I need to use it as well as I should.  The school computers have the JAWS (Job Access for Windows and Speech) that helps me by reading to me from the screen.  It is really helping me with my classes and it's good that they don't have any viruses or problems which made the old computers hard to use.  I'm really happy," she said.
The excited Deleveaux says it made her day knowing that keeping up in school would be made a little easier with the new computers.
Fourteen-year-old Letieka Minnis was happy for the computers which she says will make her life in school easier.  The eighth grader says the new computers will allow her to do her research for classes better.
"I'm happy for the computers because now I can really use the Internet and do what regular people can do.  Although we had old computers these ones are a lot better," said Minnis.
Lester Ferguson, district commander of the Salvation Army in The Bahamas says blessings always come when you need them the most and after years of wanting to provide students with up-to-date computers it finally came to fruition.  He says before the donation by Scotiabank the Salvation Army was struggling to ensure the students had what they needed.
"Many things we do have that are essential to the school are old and in need of repair or just need to be replaced.  We keep the school functioning heavily via donations and a stipend from the Ministry of Education so when opportunities like this come along it is just a really good thing.  Having computers is very important for our particular students because while there are books in Braille their ability to manually research for their classes is still limited. Before the donation we were working with older models for about seven years. When we originally got the desktops they weren't new but were good for the students for the time being.  Now, after so long, they are working very slowly and a much newer version of JAWS -- the special program that reads the computer screen to the blind so they can operate a computer -- is much needed.  So really we are beyond elated right now to at least have new computers."
The school was also given a $5,000 check by Scotiabank which Ferguson says will be used to buy a new embosser -- a machine that scans ordinary text in books and converts it to Braille so the children can read them on their own.
The Salvation Army's Erin H. Gilmour School for the Blind was established in 1946 due to a Salvation Army officer proficient in Braille teaching a visually impaired man how to read it as well.  From this humble beginning the school has moved from being an adult-focused program to an institute that caters to students as young as five years old, up to those in high school.  The primary focus of the school today is to produce students who can integrate into everyday society despite their disability and the best way to assist them in this venture is to ensure they have a good foundation, says Ferguson.
Elma Garraway, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Education, said the computer donation was a great opportunity for the students to achieve even more academically.  She encouraged them to take advantage of everything, continue to strive for excellence and shine just as brightly, if not more so than their peers as they have always done.
"This year in the Ministry of Education we are focusing on fostering competence, character and citizenship for excellence in education," said Garraway.  "We want our children to be competent in the knowledge that is required of them to know at every grade level.  We know the challenge it is for our students at this school to achieve that knowledge, so we are glad that [this] gift will assist them in not only achieving the standard we have set but even beyond."

Adam Stewart pleased with final look of basketball court

EXUMA, The Bahamas - With a total investment potentially as high as $100 million, Sandals Resorts International is looking to transform Exuma into one of the finest touristic island destinations in The Bahamas.
In terms of community outreach, the only high school on the island, the L.N. Coakley High School, has benefitted significantly.
Sandals donated a new computer lab to the school, and just recently re-paved the basketball court to the tune of $26,000.
Company Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Adam Stewart said that it is always their intention to assist in community development.
"It is never cheap to build in the out islands. We built three computer labs on the island so far, and we're trying to complete four more before the end of the year," he said. "We try to keep the projects relevant, and try to get our customers as involved as possible. I think that four additional computer labs will be a fantastic addition to this island.
"At Sandals, we always try to give the customers more than they expect. Every time I fly into this island, I'm absolutely blown away by its natural beauty. It's a place we believe that people should come and see many times in their lives," added Stewart.
Stewart toured the school grounds on Saturday, giving his stamp of approval to the work done on the basketball court, and the construction of the new computer lab. He said that Sandals believes in focusing on the community, and education is a major part of that.
"Supporting the schools is a fundamental part of what we believe we should be doing," said Stewart. "Too often we see kids not being a part of a team and an essential family. Where we have done this before, we have seen reduction in crime, and increase in team building, leadership and sportsmanship. I hope that the young kids put the court to good use," he added.
As for the promotion of the Sandals Emerald Bay Resort on the island, and the island itself, Stewart said that expansion is key, and is on the horizon, even though he can't release the details of those plans just yet.
"Exuma has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world, but if the world doesn't know about it, then we'll never get the customers here," he said. "We're running a TV commercial right now in North America, Canada and Europe called Freedom. It is a 60 second commercial that features The Bahamas.
"We loved Exuma long before we were here. If we could get all of America, the Canadian market and even the European market, to respond to that commercial, that will be big for The Bahamas. This has to be one of the hottest tourism destinations in the world."
With the proposed Baha Mar development in New Providence, Stewart said it will certainly increase airlift and sea arrivals, and bring more income into the country.
"Baha Mar will do a lot for Nassau, and a lot for The Bahamas," said Stewart. "The more quality product that will come into a destination represents the more income that will come into there. It will have an over-arching effect. Baha Mar overall will only serve to elevate The Bahamas as a destination, and if it is good for The Bahamas, it will be good for Sandals."
Adam Stewart and his father, Sandals founder and owner Gordon 'Butch' Stewart, were primarily in Exuma for the inaugural Sandals Celebrity Getaway and Golf Weekend which was held at the Sandals Emerald Bay Resort.

Will Ives overcomes financing and fraud

Months after its official opening, business at Will & Ives has been doing well, according to the store's owner Kim Gibson.
Gibson told Guardian Business than since opening the Marina Village store on Paradise Island last summer, the women's Juicy Couture line and the men's Diesel line have been a hit with local and international shoppers.
"We carry the Juicy Couture line for women and the Diesel line for men. However, we have received so many requests to carry those female Diesel jeans that we have decided to do so," she explained.
She said that clothing line will be available in the store by summer.
Gibson said she believes the store caters to everyone from the trendy to the conservative person.
"Will & Ives has been a hit with both tourists and Bahamians because our items range from $20 to $300. The truth is, there is something for everyone in Will & Ives," Gibson noted.
She said that business has been good and she is pleased with its progress so far.
Despite the store's current success, Gibson admitted to Guardian Business that the store has already seen its share of economic challenges, first with financing and then fraud. Two tourists, a man and a woman, bought items using a stolen credit card and also charged merchandise to their room.
"Although we were disappointed about the fraud by the two tourists, we didn't let that deter us. We took a great risk in opening a business during this time considering it's a recession," she said.
"However, we are committed to offering exciting and fashionable clothing and accessories along with giving excellent customer service."
To date, more than $200,000 has been invested into the store and has six employees.
The Will & Ives store carries the Juicy Couture line and the Diesel line for men.
In the Juicy Couture line, Will & Ives sells the infamous tracksuits, handbags, wallets, clothing, jewelry, fragrances, hair accessories, shoes and watches, along with a kids section with jewelry for girls, including lunch bags, fun notebooks, scented pencils, pencil cases and girls handbags, iPhone covers, ear buds, laptop covers and other computer accessories.
In the Diesel line, the store carries men's jeans, shirts, shoes, underwear (boxers), wallets, belts, caps, men's bags and watches.
Gibson further noted that there are no plans for expansion just yet, but she is definitely open to it in the future.
In the meantime, Gibson said the store is getting ready to unveil its brand new shipment for spring with items such as earrings, jeans, t-shirts, wallets, shoes, belts and watches.
"For spring, we have fantastic handbags, tracksuits in beautiful spring colors, the new line of Juicy Couture jewelry that is very affordable with earrings starting as low as $50. We have a brand new shipment of Diesel clothing for men in for spring also," she added.

The relevance of God's laws

Bell bottom pants, desk top computers, brick cellphones, 8-track cassette tapes and VHS tapes all relevant in their day have become obsolete in today's technologically advanced society where most people are willing to shell out top dollar on skinny jeans, lap tops and tablets, Blackberry phones, compact discs and DVDs, but some religious leaders say one thing that should never be lost to the passage of time and technology is the relevance and timeliness of God's word-- especially those words He imparted in the Ten Commandments.
The 10 simple laws that God set out for all His believers to follow are the most famous laws given to mankind. They are:
o I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; do not have any other gods before Me.
o You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.  For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
o You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
o Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.  Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work; you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates.  For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day.  Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
o Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
o You shall not murder.
o You shall not commit adultery.
o You shall not steal.
o You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
o You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.
These 10 Commandments given to Moses by God to be followed by His people, were precious and revered centuries ago -- today, many people barely give them a second thought -- much less wonder what these laws really mean in the twenty-first century.
The first commandment found in Exodus 20: 2-3, "I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; do not have any other gods before me," is probably the simplest yet most neglected of the laws given to man, according to some ministers of the Word.
Bishop Ros Davis, senior pastor at Golden Gates World Outreach Ministries, says today's society is in much need of a refresher on this important commandment. As simple and straightforward as it is, he says many people still find themselves not fully understanding and straying from fully embracing this law.
"While not everyone in the world is Christian, those of us who are should fully understand this first essential Commandment. He is the Lord thy God and we shall have no other gods before Him He declares. This is a powerful yet simple law which says so much. God is powerful, omnipresent, omnipotent.  He is the beginning and the end.  He is the Creator.  He is the savior and the merciful one. We should acknowledge Him and worship Him as He deserves.  There very well may be other gods, but they are lesser and have not the power of our God.  He should be worshipped. However, I believe that most Christians do follow this law but many of us tend to put other things before God especially in these times of easy prosperity and wealth."
Bishop Davis says idols do not just mean stone structures or temples built to a deity and that an idol could be a car that you clean religiously, or that television show that you put everything aside to watch, yet cannot make and effort to get up in the morning to pray, or go to church for that hour or two at least once a week.
"It may be things in our lives we want so much we do all in our power to get it. We pray for it and promise this and that for it, yet once we have it, we forget all we promised and worship it. We dote over it and act crazy if anything happens to it."
Bishop Davis says that this is a form of worship, especially if we see the material things as such a big part of your life that it becomes a real problem and violates the first commandment.
Pastor Jay Simms, senior pastor at Christian Life Church, says the first commandment is just as relevant today as the time it was given to us.
"Like all the other Commandments I feel that the first one is very relevant to what is going on today in the world.  This particular Commandment being the first in the order of the Commandments is important. In some places it even adds God stating "I am a jealous God" which puts more emphasis on this. In fact, it is clear that this Commandment is an important one because in the New Testament, Jesus says to His disciples that the Commandments can be condensed and the greatest Commandment of all is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul.  Of course, once again, God does not want us to be divided in our allegiance which is why He set this law. In the Old Testament His people, the children of Israel often times found themselves having other gods, so He said thou shall have no other gods before Me."
As this law relates to the Christians of today, Pastor Simms says there are people who break the first command by practicing idolatry and worshipping other gods. He says people break the first Commandment when they place personal desires, work, family and even friends before God.
Pastor Simms says although many people do not see it, God says that anything people put before Him becomes an idol and is a clear act of disobedience to the first Commandment.
Although many of us do not see it, He says that anything that we put before God becomes an idol and this is a clear act of disobedience to the First Commandment.
"It is important not to forget this Commandment and let everyday situations come before God. In Proverbs it shows what happens when you do-- the people's hearts become divided and are found faulty. I would tell people who are finding faults in their lives the same thing that Jesus said in Matthew 6:33, 'When you seek thee first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these things shall be added unto you.' When the children of Israel after all their trials and troubles remembered to put God first, things went well and the same thing refers to us in the modern world. If we do not put God first, things will not go well with us either."
Bishop Arnold Josey, pastor at Commonwealth Mission Baptist Church, says the First Commandment although simple is probably one of the most powerful  of all God's laws for them to follow after they left Egypt.
"As Christians who believe in the one God who came to us through His son Jesus Christ. These are also the Commandments that we should follow.  There are no ifs, ands or buts about it," says the bishop. "Whatever you do, wherever you go, you must remember that the Lord your God is the only God. The first commandment, 'I am the Lord your God and you shall have no other gods before me' is a powerful one and a relevant one in that it was the very first one that the Israelites broke when Moses came down the mountain with the tablets the first time.
"They were worshiping an idol and were greatly punished for this. The very fact that this Commandment out of all the others was the first really says a lot. It is a really important one and although simple, should not be lost or forgotten among the others."
Over the next nine weeks, The Nassau Guardian will engage a number of ministers of religion on the topic of the 10 Commandments, as they dissect each one and talk about the relevance of the Commandments to the twenty-first century society.

Technical assistance high on agenda of Agreement for Sports Cooperation

About 6,000 sports technicians from Cuba have been positioned throughout 50 countries, and are assisting with the sports development programs in those respective locations. In The Bahamas, two Cubans are working with the Bahamas Swim Federation (BSF). In a short period of time, the likelihood is that Cuban sports experts might be in this country in double figures.
In fact, as of the official signing of the Agreement for Sports Cooperation with The Bahamas on Tuesday, September 24 in Cuba, the gate was opened for the process of Cuban technical assistance into this country. Cuban Ambassador Ernesto Soberon Guzman who led the negotiations between his country and the Bahamian Government during the steps toward the venture, said congratulations were in order for Cuba and The Bahamas. He expressed his sentiments during a press conference held at the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture on Monday, October 7. The signing of the cooperation arrangement was announced at the conference.
Dr. Daniel Johnson, Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, who signed on behalf of The Bahamas Government, called the occasion "extremely historic."
"For many decades we in The Bahamas have wanted to establish (this sort) of relationship with Cuba. The time has come. Fidel Castro with his vision has built a society of people, many who are champions in their very own rights. We have received an opportunity to utilize (this relationship) as a tool to develop in sports medicine, in the field of competition and in humanity. We (in The Bahamas) must cooperate to maximize this relationship. God gave us a sign. It is time," emphasized Minister Johnson while on tour in Cuba September 22-25.
The minister was accompanied by Acting Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture Calvin Balfour, National Director of Sports Tim Munnings, Director of Sports in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Evon Wisdom, and National Sports Academy committee members D'Arcy Rahming and Fred Sturrup.
The portfolio of the technicians made available by the Cuban Government is extensive. Cubadeportes, the organization that is responsible for monitoring the technical assistance program, calls it the "Experience of Champions" with good reasons. The work of the Cubans in other countries has resulted in many champions. As for The Bahamas, Cuban coaches and trainers have been largely responsible for the success of amateur boxers Taureano Johnson, Valentino Knowles and Carl Heild.
Cubadeportes touts the program heavily:
"The Technical Assistance consists of sending professionals to offer their knowledge related to sport to any country where it is wanted. More than 6,000 sport technicians, in more than 50 countries, offer their services in different disciplines such as chess, track and field, basketball, handball, baseball, boxing, canoeing, cycling, diving, equestrian, fencing, soccer, artistic gymnastics, musical aerobics, general gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, hockey, roller derby, judo, karate do, weightlifting, wrestling, swimming, synchronized swimming, skating, water polo, rowing, sculling, softball, taekwondo, court tennis, table tennis, archery, shooting, sailing and volleyball.
"All these sport technicians are trainers, methodology workers, specialists in sport medicine, computer experts, people graduated at the Superior Institute of Physical Culture, masters and doctors, professors of the same institute, general advisers, specialists in integral organization of multidisciplinary events and in diagnostic studies for sport development, professors of physical education, specialists in rules and refereeing, psychologists, nutritionists and physiotherapists."
Such will be provided through the agreement between Cuba and The Bahamas. The Cuban Government, through Ambassador Guzman, made a large group of program directors and department heads, steeped in knowledge of the Cuban Sports System, available to the Bahamian delegation.
They included First Vice President of the Institute of Sports and Recreation (INDER) Roberto Leon Richards Aguiar, Vice President of INDER Jorge A. Polo Vazquez, National Health Promotion and Physical Education Director Gladys Becquer Diaz, Director Nilde Molina Secada from the National Gymnastic School, Director Jorge Pavel Pino of the Sports Medicine Institute, Ariel Sainz, president of the Cuban Volleyball Federation, Rector Barbara Tandron Negrin of the International School of Physical Education, Director Julio Falcon Ruffin from the Higher School of High Performance Athletes, Cubadeportes General Manager Carlos Rodriguez Acosta, Director of Events and Travel Agency Pedro Urquia Montano, Director of Technical Assistance Tania Olaniel Gonzales, Rector Antonio Becali Garrido of the University of Physical Culture and Sports Sciences, Fernando Rojas of the Ministry of Culture, and INDER Senior International Relations Specialist Ileana Alfonso Valdes.

Crime victims

The crime problem in The Bahamas the last few years has been well documented.  We often refer to victims of violent crime when discussing the issue, but property crime victims suffer too.
"They took everything," Archdeacon I. Ranfurly Brown told The Nassau Guardian of a break-in Friday at his Blue Hill Heights home.  He said the break-in happened between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.
According to Brown, the intruders entered through a window and took jewelry and electronics.  His son was unharmed, even though the thieves took his computer out of his room as he slept.
"We have to get these politicians to be more honest about the reality of the intensity of this criminal attitude and element in this country," said Brown, "not to talk about the high profile crimes only, but the crimes that are affecting the poor man, the middle man, the man who is struggling to provide for his family and somebody could just come in and take everything."
Last June, the offices of St. Agnes Anglican Church, Brown's church, were ransacked and a safe with important documents and money was stolen.
The thieves entered through a northern window of the building by breaking the panes and cutting the iron security bars, Brown said at the time.
Housebreaking increased in 2011 by three percent from 2010.  Last year 3,237 cases of housebreaking were recorded.  The number of recorded cases of housebreaking has risen significantly the last five years.  There were 2,531 cases in 2007.  There has been a 27.9 percent increase in the crime from the 2007 figure to that recorded last year.
The overwhelming majority of these cases occur in New Providence.  Last year there was an eight percent increase in housebreaking in New Providence with 2,340 cases recorded -- nearly more than the cases of the crime recorded in the entire country in 2007.
While burglary and shopbreaking cases last year decreased nationally and in New Providence, thieves seem to be focusing their efforts on daytime break-ins at residences.
As a public figure, Brown told his story of frustration.  But the voices of many victims of property crimes are not heard when thieves take what they worked for.
Property crimes affect more people than violent crime.  Of the main categories of crime recorded annually, there were 1,860 cases of violent crime and 10,262 cases of property crime in 2011.  The largest increase in this category was stealing from a vehicle, which increased by 47 percent nationally -- 42 percent in New Providence and by 99 percent in Grand Bahama.
We must continue to ensure that adequate resources and attention are focused on non-violent crimes.  On the response side of the problem, this may mean increased sentences for offenders and the further dedication of police and prosecutorial resources.
As a society, we must not condone stealing.  This means that families should not turn a blind eye to relatives who steal.  They should be turned in to police.  Residents should also give support to area crime watch associations.  We all have a role to play.

Bowling for Cancer

The lanes are being polished and participants are working on their skills that will give them a 'strike' when the 2nd Annual Cindi Smith Bowling for Breast Cancer rolls in.
The two-day tournament is being held in aid of all breast cancer survivors and their families. It is the only fundraising event for the month of October that the Sister/Sister Breast Cancer support group will host. The tournament will take place at Mario's Bowling and Family Entertainment Palace, October 20-21. Part proceeds will be donated to the group which offers financial and emotional support to cancer patients and their families.

The Sister/Sister Breast Cancer support group played an integral part in the life of Cindi Smith who passed away on June 17, 2012. She was 31.
Darlene Sands, Smith's sister is the organizer for the tournament. She said: "She was a wonderful person, who went through so much in her final years. To see and know she was going through so much pain was crushing. It was hard on us as a family because we wanted to help. We wanted to take the pain away. But there was nothing we could do in terms of getting relief for her. She would always ask for us to massage her feet and rub her where it hurt and we never refused. That was our little way of assisting making sure she was in comforted.
"When we first found out I leaned heavily on Shantell. She offered her support as a friend and a breast cancer survivor who is involved in the Sister/Sister Breast Cancer support group. We as a family needed that because it was new to us. Cindi was very grateful for all the support."
The annual bowling tournament is just one of many fundraising initiatives the female support group hosts. According to Shantell Cox-Hutchinson, a member of the group, more programs are being looked at to raise additional funds so more support can be given.

A public appeal was extended to individuals, families and small businesses as well as corporate Bahamas earlier this week. Since the main thrust of the support group is to assist women going through breast cancer treatment and those who were recently diagnosed, the venture can be very costly.

Cox-Hutchison explains: "I met Cindi through Darlene when she was diagnosed in 2008. Being a breast cancer survivor myself Darlene came and asked me to talk to Cindi at that time. I spoke to Cindi so I've been with Cindi and her family during the entire ordeal. It was very, very rough because Cindy was only 28 at the time she was diagnosed. She had a very hard time accepting that she was diagnosed and that she had any kind of cancer. I think that took a toll on her mental state. She was depress a lot.

"Being a part of Sister/Sister which is another arm that offers support during that entire time. In 2011 she needed to go for a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan, she didn't know what it was. But she was having some issues with her bones. She was feeling weak and she had a lot of symptoms. This is what Sister/Sister is all about, garnering funds for these type of events. We help people to go and get PET Computed Tomography (CT). They can range anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000.

"This is one of the things we offer especially to young women and Cindi. When she took the PET CT and it came back we knew that something was wrong. The cancer had spreaded through her entire body, mainly in her pelvic area. That was one of the reasons she couldn't walk she had to be lifted everywhere. So the whole community was behind Cindi."
The bowling tournament will cater to teams who are encouraged to register by September 30. There is a small charge of $25 for the 10 person team. Trophies and other prizes will be awarded to the top three teams and bowlers.
