systems may become mandatory to The Bahamas' building code, as the Government
shepherds Bahamians through the impact of climate change and the rising
costs of global energy prices.  The National Energy Policy is designed
to guide Bahamians to reduce energy consumption, especially people living

Testing heirlooms

By Gardener Jack

DURING January of this year I was given more than a dozen varieties of heirloom tomato seeds. This was very exciting, of course, and I had to abandon my regular favourites (including other heirlooms) in order to try out the newcomers.

My vegetable gardens are too small to do justice to so many varieties and so I shared seeds with friends. I grew one or two of each myself, which is hardly the basis of any scientific judgment, but did come up with some really interesting results.

My favourite large pink heirloom tomatoes are Brandywine and Giant Pink Ruffled. I can now add German Pink.

The problem with large heirlooms is that fruit production is often small. One German Pink p ...

Rolling blackouts continue

A summer of record heat has led to extreme challenges for the Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) which once again shut down power to thousands of residences and businesses yesterday, as the demand for electricity simply could not be met.BEC blamed yesterday's rolling blackouts - the latest in a series of load shedding exercises - on another failed generator.  This was the third generator to go offline this week.The generator has not been properly maintained due to the corporation's strained financial situation, said BEC in a statement. The corporation staggered yesterday's blackouts in two-hour intervals, impacting different areas of New Providence.BEC said between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. it would shut down power to customers in Lyford Cay, Old Fort Bay, Lyford Hills, Charlottesville, Jacaranda, Blake Road, Sea Beach, Caves Village, Sandyport and Soldier Road between Abundant Life Road and Balliou Hill Road.BEC expected to cut electricity supply to customers in Tyler Street, Nassau Street, West Bay Street (between Xavier's Primary School and Vista Marina), Augusta Street, Deans Lane, Meeting Street, Balliou Hill Road South, College Drive, Boyd Road and all side streets between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.BEC expected that between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. it would shut down supply to customers in Westward Villas, the Cable Beach strip, Lake Cunningham subdivision, Skyline Drive, Sanford Drive, Stapledon Gardens, Sea View Drive, West Bay Street, and John F. Kennedy Drive.Between 10:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. customers in Bamboo Boulevard, Pinewood Gardens, and South Beach were expected to have no electricity."Once again, the corporation apologizes to its customers and will continue to provide updates on the status of its generation challenges," BEC said in its statement.There have been rolling blackouts in New Providence since Monday when two of BEC's generators at its Clifton Pier plant failed.
One of those generators has since been brought back online.  BEC said it has identified the problem with the second generator.
"The need for parts and extensive repairs means that the generator may be out of service for several days," said BEC.The corporation said the third failed generator is expected back online today.  That generator is also located at the Clifton Pier plant.
"During this time, the corporation will continue to utilize the Generation Assistance Plan (GAP), relying on customers with large capacity standby units [capable of producing more than 1,000 kilowatts] freeing up capacity for other customers," BEC said.  "Additionally, BEC is preparing to install the 20 megawatts of rental units.  These units are expected to be operable by mid-month."BEC said with the GAP and the installation of the rental units, it would be able to limit the impact of any future generation problem on its customers.

Stating the 'facts' on urban renewal

Dear Editor,

The Ministry of Labour and Social Development, which has responsibility for the urban renewal program, has taken note of the references to the urban renewal program in a press release by the Progressive Liberal Party issued on August 17, 2011 under the caption, "FNM not in control of crime, failed to fund urban renewal," and in the stories in the print and electronic media, and it issues the following statement in response.
Firstly, the ministry wishes to inform the public that in New Providence, eight urban renewal centers were operational under the former government in the following communities: Fox Hill, Kemp Road, Nassau Village, Englerston, St. Cecilia, Farm Road, Bain and Grants Town and Fort Charlotte.  None of these centers were closed by the government and six, including the Nassau Village center, continue to operate from the same location as they did under the former government.  A ninth center was opened in Pinewood Gardens in 2008.
In Grand Bahama, six centers were operational under the former government, all of which are still open and four continue to operate from the same location as they did under the former government.  A seventh center was opened in Seahorse Village in 2008.
Secondly, there has never been any failure by the government to fund urban renewal.  Funds for the program have been allocated on a annual basis since 2007 as follows:
o 2006/2007 - $2,450,000
o 2007/2008 - $2,500,000
o 2008/2009 - $3,000,000
o 2009/2010 - $2,800,000
o 2010/2011 & 2011/2012 - $2,301,822.
The current allocation was based on the pattern of expenditure over the previous years.
The urban renewal program continues to operate a number of community based programs.
As has been the case for the past three years, all of the centers in New Providence held a summer program for children in July 2011 at a public school in the community where the center is located.   Almost two full pages of photographs of some of the activities of the camps were recently featured in the print media.  In Grand Bahama, the camps were held for two weeks during the month of July 2011.
All centers in New Providence and Grand Bahama continue to operate afterschool programs during the school year, and since May 2011 a number of teachers have been engaged as tutors in an effort to enhance the quality of instruction.
Similarly, a number of qualified musicians have been engaged as band instructors for New Providence and Grand Bahama to enhance the competence of band members.  In Grand Bahama, the Royal Bahamas Police Force still provides assistance with the bands.
In Grand Bahama, as an extension of the urban renewal sewing program, a school uniform sewing workshop was introduced in August 2010 to provide instruction to persons in the making of school uniforms under the direction of a trained seamstress.
The workshop was a tremendous success and the 2011 workshop is currently in progress.  In Grand Bahama, an employability skills program is also offered, which provides instruction for unemployed persons in a number of areas, including office procedures and computer applications.
The urban renewal program continues to partner with other government agencies, including the Department of Social Services, the Department of Environmental Health Services and the Royal Bahamas Police Force for the delivery of services and the operation of programs.  Joint activities include, community walkabouts to identify problems and the means by which they can be addressed.
The program also continues to partner with community based organizations.  For the past several years, a church in Nassau Village has served as a home base for the band as is the case with Ft. Charlotte.  A number of churches also serve as meeting places for the senior citizen's associations.  The ministry wishes to remind the public that a comprehensive report on the urban renewal program was tabled in Parliament in October 2009.
The ministry acknowledges with appreciation the continued support of communities where urban renewal centers are located for the program and the public and private sector partners who assist with the implementation of programs.
Yours, etc.,
The Ministry of Labour and Social Development

Pride cometh before a fall

The seven deadly sins -- pride, lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath and envy. The most common of spiritual errors humans can commit originated in early Christian times to teach young believers about the evil  they should avoid to secure their soul's eternity.  However, although initially from a strict religious background the intrigue of these vices have become so popular to the common man that they have been featured in many films and novels.  Even so, just how seriously the modern Christian take these cardinal sins is a question many ministers ask their parishioners as the world becomes increasingly more sinful everyday.
The fall of man, the fall of the angels and the fall of great nations all have something in common: Pride!   The saying goes that pride cometh before a fall and rightly so says ministers of the Word.  This first in line of the biblical seven deadly sins is considered to be the root of many tragedies throughout history and still has roots in everyday conflicts and disagreements.  Everyone has probably experienced a sense of pride at one time or another and while this itself is not evil, it is when man falls into foolish pride that this common emotion becomes a vice.
"Pride has two definitions, a negative and a positive.  There is self pride which is the pride in what I do, the pride in who God has made me. This is a good pride and we all have it.  It is a safe and positive thing because in having pride in what we do we put our best foot forward.  But on the other hand there is foolish pride. This pride is blind and happens when people start to think more highly of themselves than they really are.  People who indulge in this think 'Nobody is as good as me.' 'I am the best and you are nothing,'" says Bishop Simeon Hall, senior pastor at New Covenant Baptist Church. He says Christians should be more aware of how they let this simple vice control their lives because it can have long lasting repercussions if left unchecked.
"I am not saying you cannot have pride and be glad in who you are or the gifts God gave you, but when you are blinded by your own image and do not see God you are committing a sin.  You are not more than God made you, and in all situations you should always be humble.  Let others speak well of you, but do not be your own crier."
The Baptist minister says "being prideful is a very dangerous mindset to have because you are not only harming yourself by overestimating blindly, but you are saying God made you better or spent more time on you than another one of his creations which isn't true.
"The Bible says no man should think more of himself than God intended because he is surely to fall. There are everyday tales and myths that tell of men being so full of pride they destroy themselves like the Greek character, Narcissus who fell in love with his reflection by a pond and was turned into a flower mimicking his vanity and pride forever more."
Anglican priest Canon Basil Tynes, rector at St. Barnabas Church, says pride is a sin that existed in the foundations of mankind of which an ancient example  can be found in Genesis 3, in which Adam and Eve disobeyed God in favor of believing in their own righteousness.
"In Genesis 1 God created man in his image and likeness and He made us special.  This knowledge should have been enough for Adam and Eve, but they let Satan stir up a dangerous level of pride in them that caused them to disobey God's only rule of not eating from the tree of knowledge so they could be just like God.  Their actions caused them to be turned out of the Garden of Eden and sealed the fate of all mankind.  Had they remained humble and let God unravel things in the time they should, mankind would not have been given the fate it has today.  Their pride resulted in sin and misery entering into the picture of life on Earth for the first time.  So pride -- the same pride that caused the fall of man, is still present today and many of us let it control us."
The priest believes that pride is at the root of all other forms of sin in the world today.  He says it is in people's quest to do things their way and not the way God intended that causes many people to fall into life-shattering problems.
"In the Bible, Jesus condemned the crowd and His disciples many times to not think themselves too highly for the proud shall fall low and the humble will be exalted.  Christians should aim to be humble as much as possible because like Jesus said, only he who is like a child can enter heaven.
"In the gospels, Jesus constantly points out that pride will be the destruction of many people.  When we talk about resolving this problem of too much pride, the only solution is in turning to God.  He commands that we be humble.  Even His own son who could have likened Himself to His Father chose to come to mankind as a mere mortal man.  He chose to be a servant in a world where He was master.  You have to remember that He could have let His pride get in the way and saved himself, but He chose to do as God commanded and remained humble and lowly. Too much pride destroys us and what we are seeing in our societies with violence and corruption is the result of letting it have free rein in our lives."
Falling into the abyss of arrogance and destruction is the most dangerous part of indulging in pride says Pastor Valentino Williams, pastor of Life Changers Ministries International.  The senior pastor says letting yourself become prideful is like turning away from God and believing your own abilities to determine your own fate because you believe you are the true expert.
"Pride is an independence from God.  It's a bad thing because the Bible speaks against man becoming prideful and confident in himself.  Lucifer and his angels were banished from the presence of God because [Lucifer] believed he knew what was best and wanted to defy God's commands.  It was his pride and independence of God that caused him to be kicked out of heaven.  Ever since this vice entered the world we have been in turmoil.  We don't know how to humble ourselves or ask for help when we need to.  We don't want to admit we are wrong and give wrong advice to the detriment of ourselves or others. We snare ourselves with our pride."
Pastor Williams says whether it is personal destruction or the destruction of others and nations, that pride as small as it may seem, is a big player in many tragedies.  He says people need to keep God in the equation and humble themselves in all situations.

Over the next six weeks, The Nassau Guardian will engage a number of ministers of religion on the topic of the Seven Cardinal Sins as they dissect each one and talk about the relevance of the deadly sins to the twenty-first century society.
