There is no such thing
as easy money or a free lunch, but there is opportunity to make money
in real estate even in our struggling economy.
Investing really can be as simple as playing monopoly. Your goal is to
buy properties, avoid bankruptcy, and generate rent so that you can buy
even more properties and make a profit. But "simple" doesn't mean
"easy". If you make a mistake, you could find yourself broke or worse...
so make sure you do your homework. Remember the money that you will be
"playing' with is NOT Monopoly money!
Have you found yourself in the uncomfortable realization that your current network infrastructure is no longer capable of supporting your business’s needs? Has that realization forced you to spend more money to patch, update or possibly even overhaul parts of your network? Are you regretting the decision you made based solely on price? Perhaps you thought: “This network equipment seems good enough, it’s cheap and works, right?”
When the House of Assembly last met the prime minister repeated a foolish statement which he first said at the launch of his candidates in Grand Bahama: that the PLP has lots of money and that they (voters) must take the PLP's money and vote FNM.
While there is a role for fun, jokes and humor in politics, this is no time in such a grave economic climate to make such a joke. Fun and games need to be put aside. The serious and underlying message of the comment is to support political prostitution. We have enough of the evil influence of money on our politics for a prime minister to be engaged in this tomfoolery.
The PLP's campaign is adequately funded. The PLP is not a rich organization but it can and will meet the ordinary expenses of running a general election. It can match the ordinary expenses of an election in a fair competition with the FNM. But we must remember that this is an FNM going into a general election with its coffers fat and brimming from all the multi-million dollar contracts that it has given to its supporters, lining their pockets with the treasury's money. The PLP cannot match that form of corruption in politics. Nor is it in the business of corrupting elections like the UBP and its successor the FNM have repeatedly done.
The PLP is poised to win this general election and voters should not be fooled by the prime minister's reverse psychology. It is the FNM's intention to buy support given their desperate political situation. I as a PLP will fight this at every turn with every fiber in my being. Ingraham and his party are bad for The Bahamas and must go.

Nassau, The Bahamas - Children of Kemp Road learned a
valuable lesson of proper money management on August 14, 2010, when they were
taught how to receive a paycheque, pay themselves, invest and pay bills before
paying for entertainment.
The Kemp Road Urban Renewal and Creative Wealth
Bahamas partnered with the Rotary Club of Nassau Sunrise to hold "The Money
Game Workshop, 'A Fun Financial Workshop for Teens'" seminar at the New Life
Ministries on Jerome Avenue.
"It's an interactive game that teaches teens and young
adults about money, how to manage money, how to budget, how to balance a
chequebook, to give them some financial literacy," said Karen Pinder, president
of the Rotary Club of Nassau Sunrise...
By Keshelle Kerr / Creative Wealth Bahamas It's been far too long since I wrote. After I launched my first book in 2010, I took a hiatus from writing officially as it seems. However, with April 2013 being the 5th year anniversary of Creative Wealth Bahamas, I am happy and proud to say that I am back -and with...

So here are 7 steps to help you solve your money problems, breathe easier and sleep better.
Six police officers from the Central Division were arrested and questioned in connection with an investigation into how around $8,000 vanished from police custody, The Nassau Guardian understands.
Assistant Commissioner Hulan Hanna confirmed that officers from Central were quizzed about missing money related to an armed robbery case. However, he did not provide details on the number of officers in custody and what sum of money is missing.
According to Guardian sources, a man was robbed of $13,000 while making a deposit at the Bank of The Bahamas at Shirley and Charlotte Streets on Sunday afternoon.
Officers from the Tourism Patrol Unit (TPU) arrested two 19-year-old men near Peck's Slope and Market Street after a brief foot chase a short time later, according to police. Police also recovered a stolen deposit bag as well as a loaded gun in the area.
However, The Nassau Guardian understands that the Royal Bahamas Police Force later discovered that a significant portion of the stolen money was missing, prompting an investigation.
The officers were taken into custody on Monday and have been released pending further investigation.
Police Staff Association executive chairman Dwight Smith, when contacted by The Nassau Guardian, said better policies are needed when it comes to dealing with officers accused in these types of matters.
While acknowledging that these allegations must be investigated, Smith maintained that something must be done to ensure that officers are not persecuted before such investigations are completed.
He said care, respect and trust are core principles espoused by Commissioner Ellison Greenslade and these principles should be applied when dealing with officers accused of impropriety.
Smith said he plans to speak with Greenslade about the matter when he returns from the United States in the coming days.
Last month, police charged an officer with a series of armed robberies in New Providence.
Angelo Roker, 20, of Lightbourne Street, was a serving member of the force when prosecutors alleged he and two accomplices carried out a robbery spree in August and September.
Roker was relieved of his duties before his arraignment in magistrate's court.
Yesterday The Guardian was unable to reach Deputy Commissioner of Police Quinn McCartney, who is responsible for force discipline, for comment.
Nineteen police officers were fired from the Royal Bahamas Police Force in 2010 accused of misconduct.
For over a year now, those of us of Cuban heritage and residing in the United States have been flooded with information about the relations, or lack thereof, between the countries and the many missed opportunities by the Obama administration to change Cuba policy, to match what Cuba is doing about its way of governing and its economy, boiling down to "what one country does and the other does or does not".
These are maximized by the expectation of many in the United States that the government should make further changes to its policies (the legitimacy and/or value of these policies are not going to be debated here) towards Cuba as a result of the changes that Cuba is in the process of putting into effect or has already done.
I, for one, do not agree that any changes need to be made as a direct result of the ongoing changes that the Cuban revolutionary government is making or proposing to make. I also do not agree with any of the sanctions now in place with regard to Cuba, nor do I subscribe to the theory that Cuba is "a terrorist nation" - the furthest thing from my belief. But I do not tie one country's internal changes to another's foreign policies.
What is happening in Cuba is the direct result of erroneous economic, and to a certain degree political, decisions in the past. Some of them were derived from the Cold War mentality, which still prevails in some circles of both governments. Others came about as a result of mismanagement and/or lack of managerial ability. But these are Cuban problems, these are Cuban decisions taken at this time, I trust, to correct the problems from the past mistakes that were made and make life better for its citizens.
Once again we continue to interfere in the internal affairs of Cuba, and we do it with other nations too. I noted with keen interest that Raul Castro (I believe it was him) said in days past that if an individual is caught in this country (i.e. United States), receiving money from Cuba, he/she is prosecuted under several of our laws, unless registered as a representative of a foreign country - which if done I would imagine that our government's radars would be on that individual or group 24/7/365! And yet the United State criticizes Cuba for the prosecution of those that are actively taking money, and orders, from the United States' government and dressing themselves as "periodistas", but without journalism degrees. This, at the very least is total hypocrisy.
The conclusion is simple. Whatever Cuba does internally is the problem of its government and its people, and nothing should be expected or demanded by them or others as payment for their changes. On the other side of the coin, the United States government needs to discontinue two things:
1) The flow of money - taxpayers' money - to individuals and organizations that "promote" democracy or regime change in Cuba. This is direct interference in the internal affairs of another country.
2) Disengage the "this-for-that" policies and realize that the embargo has been a failure, and an excuse, and that Americans should be able to travel to Cuba as they please.
