Disc injuries

By Susan Donald D.C.

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 ...

Challenges ignite boxing fraternity

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.

Angelo Dundee's Bahamian history

The names read like a who's who of the best in boxing history.
Carmen Basilio, Willie Pastrano, Ralph Dupas, Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali, Louis Rodriguez, Sugar Ray Leonard and Jimmy Ellis are just some of the noted boxing figures the late, great trainer Angelo Dundee guided through historic bouts.
There is though, that Bahamian connection also, that has been very special in the overall progress of boxing in The Bahamas.
Angelo Dundee passed away on Wednesday in Tampa, Florida and left to mourn along with a multitude of associates throughout the boxing world are those of us whose early positive boxing activities were crafted by the legendary one.
From South Philadelphia originally, Dundee spent a lot of years in New York being mentored and following the boxing manoeuvrings of older brother Chris, very closely.
When Chris moved to Miami Beach in Florida prominently and became a promotional fixture as early as the 1950s, Angelo came right along. Together, they made the Fifth Street Gym on the Beach one of the more fabled boxing locations in the history of the sport.
The proximity of this country to South Florida was an easy fit for locals who became closely associated with boxing.
Gomeo Brennan, one of those superb athletes who hailed from Bimini, turned professional in 1956 and soon found himself under the guidance of Angelo. That relationship would lead to Brennan becoming one of the great fighters of the Commonwealth and a world top-rater for years in the middleweight and light heavyweight divisions.
The high points of that relationship of course were four championship victories on the two occasions that he held the British Commonwealth middleweight title and a world title fight near the end of Brennan's career. He fought Vicente Rondon for the World Boxing Association's light heavyweight crown and lost when the referee became concerned after the 13th round about swelling around Brennan's eyes.
I remember in particular Angelo's frustration on many occasions during the fight when Brennan just was not able to unleash his famous powerful right hand when the openings came. Our guy had lost a little of that edge overtime. That's all it takes in the ring to be unable to pull the trigger.
I recall at the end, Angelo embracing Brennan and telling him how proud he was of him to go on so valiantly with swollen eyes.
Then, there was Baby Boy Rolle. Angelo steered the Exuma native to his best ever ring appearance.  It happened on the night of October 23, 1973 in a ring in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom. It was Rolle's finest moment in a solid career. For 15 rounds he stood up to John Conteh and was not once in trouble. In fact in the fifth round he came very close to one of the all time great upsets.
Angelo had arranged for me to substitute for him as he was busy with two other fighters whose bouts sandwiched the Rolle/Conteh event. I asked my other boxing mentor, Charlie Major Sr., to accompany us. Charlie and I were in Rolle's corner. Rolle and Boston Blackie had mastered a punch that we called the overhand bolo. The Cuban, Kid Gavilan, had introduced the underhand bolo during a fabulous career that saw him become a welterweight champion in the 1950s.
Against Conteh, we told Rolle to hold back on the "bolo" until round five. Rolle left the corner, walked across the ring to his opponent and let go with a vicious overhand right. Conteh just barely got under the blow, receiving the full impact on his back. He stayed away from Rolle for the rest of the fight, content to utilize his better speed and win on a majority decision.
Angelo also factored significantly in the rise of Elisha Obed to world championship success.
In June of 1971 when Obed won a decision over Ray Minus Sr. to capture the Bahamas welterweight crown, he was handled then by the Steve Acunta group, of New York. Dr. Norman Gay had made that arrangement for Obed. However the cold climate and some other circumstances became uncomfortable for Obed. He knew of my close association with Chris and Angelo and asked for me to make contact.
I called Angelo and he said he would get back to me. He called later to inform that the situation with Acunta had been resolved and Chris had agreed to monitor the career of Obed. The veteran Moe Fleisher would be the trainer and Chris' son Mike would be registered as manager. (Let me emphasize here that Mike is the son of Chris Dundee, not Angelo. Even Wikipedia has it wrong).
Of course, the rest is history.
With Angelo watching from a distance and sometimes from close-up, Obed went on to defeat Miguel de Olivera on November 13, 1975 for the World Boxing Council's junior middleweight crown.
Angelo paid close attention to the Bahamian boxing scene and interacted as well over the years with Sugar Cliff, Jimmy Mackey, Ray Minus Sr. and Ray Minus Jr.
He also played an interesting and noteworthy role for amateur boxing in the country.
Multiple local heavyweight champion Bert Perry came up with the idea about an amateur boxing program in The Bahamas. He solicited the support of Charlie Major Sr., Virginius Knowles, Amos Ferguson and this journalist. They all told me that I would have to make the connection with the international body.

What did I do?
I reached out to Angelo and he pointed me in the right direction. Some 40-plus years later the amateur boxing program is going on marvelously.
His impact on Bahamian boxing has indeed been tremendous. For this the Bahamian boxing fraternity is grateful.

Farewell Angie!
Sleep on and may your soul forever rest in peace.

100M PMH reaches 20 completion

The managing director of Cavalier Construction says the $100 million Princess Margaret Hospital extension is 20 percent complete.
After months of sorting through a labyrinth of old underground utilities, the site is fully prepared for vertical construction, Richard Wilson said.
The massive project, started in November of last year, is now preparing to bring a crane on-site so structural steel work can begin. The construction of the skeletal structure of the new hospital wing involves more than 400 workers.
"We are moving ahead now. We have all the basement slab poured," Wilson explained.
"Our crane was held up for two weeks because of the Customs strike. Once it gets on-site we'll be ready to keep moving. In the next month, you'll see a major difference."
The Cavalier chief estimated that 20 percent of the original $75 million budget had been spent. Earlier this year, the Managing Director of the Public Hospitals Authority Herbert Brown told Guardian Business that sum has now been bumped up to $100 million for the purchase of more medical equipment.
When the critical care block is complete, there will be nine operating theaters, more than 500 beds, a pre-op and post-op area, 18 intensive care unit private rooms and a neonatal intensive care unit.
Wilson said the company is relieved to be finished with the "major challenges" encountered in the ground from existing utilities.
The project's lead consultant, Michael Diggis, said poor mapping of the grounds led to some unexpected surprises, requiring coordination with Bahamas Electricity Corporation and the Water and Sewerage Corporation.
Wilson described the job as "intense and complex", and easily one of the top three jobs that the leading contractor has ever tackled.
Other than the critical care block, Cavalier is now going after the coveted convention center project at Baha Mar. Top executives at the mega resort revealed to Guardian Business last week that major components of the 200,000-square-foot facility will indeed go to local contractors.
"We hope to work on the Baha Mar project," Wilson said.
"Nothing is guaranteed. We will have to bid for it and it'll have to go through the whole procedure. We have worked with them over the last year. We did the Bank of Nova Scotia job for them and we're doing a sewerage waste water plant."
The bank is part of the new commercial village, constructed as part of the Bay Street diversion and creation of the Bahamian Riviera. The waste water plant is being built by Baha Mar on behalf of Breezes in exchange for a parcel of land.
Cavalier will also assist Baha Mar with the demolition of two wings of the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino, which is expected to begin next month.

By JEFFARAH GIBSON

Callenders Co. lawyer first Bahamian admitted to Lawyer Pilots Bar Association

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."
