While the intervetebral disc is a common culprit in spine related health problems, its function is widely misunderstood.
The disc is a small cartilage pad that is situated between spinal bones. The soft jellylike center is contained by surrounding layers of fibrous tissues call the annular fibers. Each disc serves as connector, space, and shock absorber for the spine. When healthy, discs allows normal turning and bending.
Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring in nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion or position and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc ...
For more than a decade, Sunday school teacher Lavette Smith attended Lakeview Church of God, but this past weekend marked the first time she received a red carpet welcome. On Sunday, August 14, the 24-year-old was officially presented to her church as the new Miss Gospel Bahamas 2011/2012.
The church's foyer was decorated for her joyous homecoming. A "Congratulations" banner dangled from the ceiling. Underneath it were three of the garments the queen wore the night she was crowned: the 'Esther' outfit which won her...

When competing in the Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) Annual Ironman competition, Lieutenant Ricardo Barry continues to prove that he is the man to beat. To be considered the best all-around athlete in the Defence Force, a number of individuals once again competed for the prestigious Ironman title.
Now in its 11th year, two new champions were crowned during the annual competition at the Coral Harbour Base. Lieutenant Barry literally ran away with the competition for a record fourth time after not competing last year. Woman Marine Rikeisha Thompson captured the crown in the open female category.
WASHINGTON, DC -- After participating in the US Department of State-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), veteran educator, Junkanoo proponent and cultural advocate Arlene Nash Ferguson expounded on the necessity for The Bahamas to participate in professional exchange, especially in the area of cultural preservation.
The return of professional boxing to the Nassau Stadium last Saturday was ample proof that there is a thirst for the sport. The Charlie Major Jr. card was not widely publicized and there were a few glitches that resulted in a late start.
Nevertheless, some 200 persons came out despite the threat of rain and it was an enjoyable evening of boxing. The amateur segment at the beginning was exciting. In the pro program, Anthony Woods and Kato Ferguson engaged in a spirited four-rounder. Then, Dencil Miller looked sharp in a clash with John Wesley. Miller packed too much power. He used a crushing left hook and on-target right hand shots to overpower Wesley in three rounds. The two lead bouts were more appealing than the main event.
Meacher Major had no problems at all with the veteran Cuban Alex Perez. The visiting boxer did not land one solid blow and spent much of his time covering from an aggressive Major. In round three when Major scored with a solid body blow, Perez dropped to a knee and took the count.
There was a sidelight incident, however, that added as much excitement as the actual ring action. Former Commonwealth Super Middleweight (168 pounds) Champion Jermaine Mackey and 9-0 up-and-coming light heavyweight (175 pounds) boxer Ryan McKenzie got into a verbal battle. They both declared an interest in fighting at any weight. McKenzie said he would come down to the super middleweight division.
Bulking up to a light heavyweight might be a stretch for the lanky Mackey but he could get to 170 or so and still be comfortable in the ring. It's a match ready to be made and Major Jr. seems quite interested. He was eagerly listening to the back-and-forth boastful statements. Thus, there is the prospect of a Mackey/McKenzie encounter.
Also, former double Commonwealth Bantamweight Champion Ray Minus Jr. is set to come out of retirement. He has not fought for 10 years, but the 47-year-old looked a bit smaller on Saturday as he worked the corner for some of his fighters and moved around giving a hand with the tightening of the ring ropes.
He is getting ready for Meacher Major. For Ray Minus Jr., the only obstacle is being declared medically fit and ready for ring action. The two challenges have sparked new enthusiasm for pro boxing. A Mackey/McKenzie bout will be a big encounter, a major sports happening. A Minus Jr./Major match will be just as highly anticipated.
The excitement has returned to pro boxing.

PLP leader Perry Christie's plan to fight crime has come under fire from a number of directions since he unveiled it at the beginning of the week.

THERE were just nine Bahamian participants among 150 at this year's International Talent Showcase competition in Boca Raton, Florida, but that small group really made its presence felt - walking away with nine division honours.

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Llewellyn Boyer-Cartwright, a 29-year veteran of the aviation industry who specialises in Aviation Law, this month became the first Bahamian to be admitted to the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association, an international organisation dedicated to airline and aircraft safety and legal issues surrounding the aviation industry.
"This is not only a personal honour for me, but an opportunity for The Bahamas to participate in a meaningful way to the growing body of aviation law governing an industry critical to our economy," said Boyer-Cartwright, a Senior Associate with Callenders & Co. Law Firm, the country's oldest law firm.
"Most of us think of aviation only when we are making travel plans. We voice our frustration about paying for extras or delayed departures or our pleasure at on-time arrivals. We do not stop to think about everything that went into making that flight among thousands a day even possible, not the engineering of the aircraft but the engineering, so to speak, of the rules governing the sky and operations onthe ground even before an aircraft leaves the gate. In conjunction with ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), there is an increasing body of law that strives to ensure safety in the skies and on the ground, regulates airports, sets parameters for flight and pilot standards, airworthiness of aircraft, manages the framework for currency exchanges between airlines criss-crossing continents, looks at every aspect of insurability, responsibility and liability in addition to matters like aircraft registries. It's the law that, figuratively speaking, keeps the airline industry -- commercial, corporate and private -- grounded in the finest sense of the word."
For years now, veteran sailor and boat owner 'King' Eric Gibson has called on the government to launch more support behind the sport of sloop sailing. Appeals were also made for corporate assistance to ensure that the indigenous sport continues to grow in The Bahamas.
Even though many of his requests would go unanswered, Gibson pushed on hoping that things would get better, and according to the sailing legend, they did. A few days ago, CEO of the Palm Cay Marina Richard Browning announced that he would sponsor the floating trophy for the 'Catch Me If You Can' St. Valentine's Regatta. Other incentives were also added to the regatta, which will take place at Montagu today.
Gibson believes that the move by Browning is timely and brought excitement back for many of the sailors, who had lost hope. "This weekend's regatta is going to be one of the most exciting ones held in many years," said Gibson. "The sailors are excited about the event and are looking forward to putting their boats back into the water. The buzz and love of regatta is back. We see more and more persons going out there, building boats and wanting to compete. That is good. It brings hope because regattas are big. The people in Nassau don't know how big regattas are. Some of these regattas and homecomings are the 'bread and butter' of these islands. So to have a nice man support sailing, that is great."
One of the new sloops set to hit the water today is the Melva B, a C-class boat. Gibson said Melva is built to sail with the best of the sloops in her class. He believes that the sloop will turn a lot of heads this year and encourages other corporate entities to jump on board.
He added: "We know that this regatta season is going to be a good one. I can feel it. In all of my years being involved in regattas, from organizing and sailing, I know that this is going to be a great year. Whenever you see the sailors are excited about the season you know that it is going to be good. The sailors are ready. The regatta on the weekend will prove it. A lot of sailors will be taking part. There will be a lot of new boats. So we are keeping our fingers crossed for the rest of the season because this is just the beginning."
The annual 'Catch Me If You Can' St. Valentine's Regatta will start today and conclude on Sunday.

One of the deadliest hurricanes, that ripped through the Bahamas claiming the lives of 381 persons while sinking ships and causing extensive destruction to anything in it’s path was documented in veteran meteorologist Wayne Neely’s new book The Great Bahamas Hurricane of 1866.
This is a story of one of the greatest and deadliest hurricanes to ever impact the Bahamas. The book seeks to give a detailed account of the violent hurricane that took place almost two centuries ago.
Mr Neely said this hurricane was so bad that all of the major churches in the Bahamas were destroyed.

It's sophistication at its best, but it's still an evening filled with love, laughter, dancing and in general a good time. The 48th annual Heart Ball allows patrons to celebrate life and love while helping to preserve a heart and give a gift of life, in a fun, party atmosphere affair.
This year, patrons will get dressed in their "Sunday go to meeting best" and get down to the sounds of the Ed Brice Orchestra, the Soulful Groovers Band, the Royal Bahamas Defence Force Dance Band and to selections from Gary Johnson at the deejay booth. The ball will be held in the Independence Ballroom at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort on Saturday, February 18, under the theme "Repairing a broken heart: What a gift".
Tickets are $250 per person, and each person's attendance will help to repair the heart of a child and give a gift of life. Cocktails are served at 7:15 p.m., dinner is at 8:30 p.m.
"The Heart Ball Committee is working arduously to ensure that this ball is better than any before," said public relations officer Ingrid Sears. "Last year the Heart Foundation celebrated its 50th anniversary. At the start of the year 2012, we move forward with greater financial need and thus greater challenges, as we seek to help the Heart Foundation repair hearts. The Heart Ball Committee is working with a renewed determination to ensure that we maintain the legacy of the founder and also the foundation. Additionally, we wish to ensure that patrons are encouraged to attend future Heart Balls and continue to help to repair broken hearts".
The Heart Ball is one of two major fundraisers for the Heart Foundation. It is always held on the Saturday closest to Valentine's Day. Funds raised go towards assisting children to receive heart surgeries which aren't cheap, and which many parents cannot afford. One child's heart surgery can cost over $50,000.
Even though patrons attend the annual ball to have fun, they do so knowing that the cost of their ticket is helping to reduce the financial burden to parents who cannot afford the cost of the life-saving surgery for their children.
"At present there are 11 patients in need of heart surgeries," said Sears. "It is anticipated that more children will need heart care during the year, and many of their parents will not be able to afford it. The funds raised from this event, will help the Heart Foundation to repair the hearts of children."
One of the highlights of the ball is always the naming of the person that will be given The Lady Sassoon Golden Heart award, who will be selected from of pool of people nominated for their humanitarian and heart touching acts to improve the lives of others.
Additionally, fabulous prizes will be up for grabs on the evening via raffles, and auctioned items. Roundtrip tickets for on British Airways to London; roundtrip tickets for two on Air Canada; hotel accommodations in Canada; an emerald and diamond ring; spa treatments and dinners are among the most coveted prizes that will be given away on the night. There will also be paintings and prints from the likes of the late Chan Pratt, Clifford Fernander, Nettica Symonette, and many more artists.
But in the midst of all the glitz, glamour and fun, Sears says she wants patrons to remember and recognize the cause for the annual Heart Ball, which is to raise funds for the Heart Ball Committee, the fundraising arm of The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation. The foundation's main goal is to assist primarily children, with heart care. Additionally, the foundation in conjunction with the Bahamas Heart Association aims to proactively educate and inform people residing in The Bahamas about heart care and how to lead heart healthy lifestyles.
The Heart Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1961 by Lady Evelyn Sassoon to assist people in need of heart care. The foundation runs primarily on a volunteer basis and relies heavily upon the generosity of others. Over 97 percent of the funds received go directly to heart care. The remaining three percent or less goes to unavoidable administrative costs.
The Heart Foundation gives support and understanding to parents and families for heart care, whether in hospitals in The Bahamas or in Florida. Since its inception, the Heart Foundation has helped over 4,000 patients to obtain heart care. Despite the Heart Foundation's best efforts and the increase in number of local cardiologist, technology and equipment, there is still a need to raise funds to assist children of The Bahamas receive heart care locally and at hospitals abroad.

A murder convict will have to wait two more weeks before he learns his punishment.
A jury convicted Angelo Poitier, 24, last October of the murder of his former girlfriend Shanice Adderley.
Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty.
Yesterday, Poitier's lawyer Terrell Butler urged Justice Vera Watkins to impose a definite sentence instead of life.
She said that Poitier was not beyond reform.
Police found the 19-year-old's body inside a grave at the Bahamas Veteran's Cemetery on Infant View Road on May 27, 2009.
According to an autopsy report, Ms. Adderley died as a result of blunt force trauma to the body.
Prosecutors produced a confession at trial, but Poitier claimed that police obtained it under threats of harm.
Justice Watkins will sentence Poitier on June 21.

VETERAN sprinter Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie may have graduated from the University of Georgia about a decade ago. But next month, she will be returning for yet another prestigious honour.
Over the weekend of September 17-18, Ferguson-McKenzie will return to Athens, Georgia where the four-time Olympic medalist will join football quarter-back Eric Zeier for their induction into the University of Georgia's Circle of Honour.
The honour, one of the school's highest to be bestowed on former athletes and coaches, will take place during a black tie awards banquet on Friday, September 17 at the Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall ...
A total of 32 junior golfers participated in a clinic organized by Bahamas Petroleum Company Plc on Saturday at the Bahamas Golf Federation's (BGF) Driving Range, at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex. The junior clinic, facilitated by veteran golfers Lee Elder and Wayne Player, was part of the inaugural 'Experience Golf Clinic' which began last Wednesday at the Ocean Club, on Paradise Island.
Elder, who made history in 1975 as the first African American invited to play in The Masters Tournament, donated a grass cutter to the BGF to help maintain the greens. He also offered words of wisdom to the junior golfers.
"The reason why I'm here right now is to try to instil in you to try and do the best that you can in whatever you decide to do. Anything in life is hard when it is time consuming. There will be a lot of days when you will not feel like going to practice, but if you plan to be a champion, you're certainly going to have to forget about all those things that you had done in the past and concentrate primarily on the game of golf. There is no shortcuts in the game of golf," he said.
Player, who was just 17-years-old when he played in his first British Open, noted that Saturday's event was the most important part of the 'Experience Golf Clinic'. He believes that golf is a useful tool for developing children into productive citizens.
"This is where it all begins. Golf is a great game, and the more of these kids that play the game of golf the better. [They] arrive here today, they have to dress appropriately, and they have to look sharp. There is a certain set of policies that you have to abide by in the game of golf, so it's a great game to play. When these children go into their business lives this is really going to help them," said Player.
During the opening ceremony, Player thanked the Bahamas Petroleum Company CEO Paul Crevello and his team for organizing an event for young golfers. He informed the junior golfers that being a champion requires toughness in the face of adversity and discipline.
"To become a champion you have to be tough, and be able to handle adversity... One day a handful of you may become champions," said Player.
Billy Lee, BGF Vice President, told the golfers that the clinic was an invaluable experience.
"Today is a very special day for you... People pay a lot of money to get this type of seminar instruction around the world, and we are privileged to have this opportunity," he noted.
Ingrid Black, BGF Central Junior Division Chairperson hopes that Saturday's clinic will go a long way in helping to improve the players' performances.
"Mr. Player and Mr. Elder imparted a lot of knowledge to the kids. Hopefully they will take the tips that were given and use them throughout their regular practice, and it will produce some really good golfers out of what we have done here today. We would like to thank Bahamas Petroleum Company for sponsoring this event. It was truly a magnificent offer on their part to do this for the kids. The Bahamas Golf Federation, the junior program in particular, is truly grateful for having this opportunity to meet these legends in golf. We look forward to a continued relationship with them," said Black.
Aviation law specialist Llewellyn Boyer-Cartwright, a 29-year veteran of the aviation industry and senior associate at Callenders & Co., is among 25 lawyers worldwide invited to attend a meeting in Washington, DC May 22 dealing with aircraft leasing and the mushrooming demand for specialized aircraft financing.
"It's an honor to be one of only 25 attorneys selected to attend and participate in the Legal Aspects of Aircraft Leasing and Financing," said Cartwright.
In February, Cartwright became the first Bahamian to be admitted to the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association, an international organization dedicated to airline and aircraft safety and legal issues surrounding the aviation industry. That appointment came just weeks after he and Callenders & Co. Senior Partner Colin Callender called for the creation of a Bahamas Aircraft Registry. The campaign for a national registry for a growing international industry is a natural progression for the country's oldest law firm whose lead attorneys have been involved in nearly every major facet of financial services development - and it makes sense that Cartwright, a commercial pilot with more than 7,500 hours crisscrossing the Americas before starting to practice law in 1994, would lead the charge.
"The private, charter and leasing segments of the airline industry are growing phenomenally. Even the most challenging economy could not dampen the fervor of such growth and all signals point toward continued growth," said Cartwright. "The more obstacles that are put in the way of the average traveler to improve security, the greater the growth is going to be of executive jet service and the accompanying business of private FBOs (fixed base operators). For the business traveler or the high net worth individual, it's all about saving time, cutting the wait for an international flight from two to three hours sitting around an airport to a matter of minutes, walking up to a plane and boarding, and same at the other end with almost instant disembarking."
Feeding that growing trend is opening up new avenues for commerce.
"The projected continued growth is dependent upon adequate funding vehicles and all the legal parameters," Cartwright said. "It's very exciting to be on the cutting edge of this emerging industry and to be invited to help shape its future."
The Washington meeting under the auspices of the Legal Aviation Workshop program follows two others in London and Dubai and is hosted by the well-known law firm of Cozen O'Connor.
The 13th International Association of Athletic Federations Championship events are going on in Daegu, South Korea. As has been the case for more than a decade, The Bahamas sent a respectable group of athletes.
Always among the medal favorites are the Bahamian quarter milers. This time, the 400 meters standouts are led by veteran Chris Brown, who is the defending World Indoor champion; National Collegiate Athletic Association Indoor winner Demetrius Pinder and Ramon Miller.
None of them managed to get into the open 400 meters final but much of an entire nation is anticipating the 1600 meters relay event and hoping the locals get into medal stride collectively.
Among the many Bahamians following the competition in Daegu closely and wishing for an error-free outing is a certain Leslie Miller.
Today, most Bahamians across the length and breadth of this archipelago know Miller as the fiery politician who speaks out loudly and clearly for the "little man" and who is also one of the more noted businessmen in the country.
A rather small percentage of the population know of his distinguished athletic background, though.
It was Leslie Osbourne Miller who in fact started the elite 400 meters era for The Bahamas. He was the first star collegiate performer in the event and the first to break the 47 seconds barrier. He did that with a 46.8 clocking at the 1968 Olympic Games.
He was superb as a senior athlete indeed.
However, as a high school performer, he was phenomenal and set a standard in the South Florida area that placed him forever in a very special category.
There was the 1967 season.
Miller was one of the athletes featured in the prestigious "High School Runners and Their Training Programs" book. That was the year he was Florida State Champion, an All-American and demonstrated versatility in events, second to none as he went undefeated in his specialty, the quarter mile.
Miller established Florida prep records in the long jump (24-1); the triple jump (45-11 ½); ran 21.9 in the 220 yards; 47.5 in the 440 yards and 1:57.4 on the 880 yards.
Those prep statistics compare very favorably with some other senior milestones that he registered. For instance, Miller won a collegiate 600 yards title at the Houston Astrodome with the time of 1:08.9 in 1969 and had 46.6 and 45.8 splits, respectively, in the 440 yards and 400 meters.
Today, The Bahamas is regarded widely as one of the two most consistent nations in the 1600 relay event ( the United States is the other).
It was Miller who blazed the elite trail over the one lap distance.
