Correlation does not equal causation

July 09, 2021

In an earlier article I made the statement, “Lies, damn lies and statistics”. This was in response to persons giving numbers without any sensible statistical analysis. This habit of throwing numbers around and drawing non-sensical conclusions seems to be endemic in our world today.

Letter To The Editor - Paradise Island Lighthouse Beach Club Co. Ltd
Letter To The Editor - Paradise Island Lighthouse & Beach Club Co. Ltd

June 14, 2021

Paradise Island Lighthouse & Beach Club Co. Ltd.’s (PILH) is appalled by the fact that the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, the Minister Responsible for Crown Lands would offer a signed Crown Land Lease to Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

The moral standard of a foreign corporation, who are supposed to follow international laws of ethics and morals when dealing with foreign governments are clearly complicit in negotiating with the government of the Bahamas for Bahamian Crown Land in litigation.

Paradise Island Lighthouse & Beach Club Co. Ltd. continues to campaign to the Government of the Bahamas to have the Crown Land Lease offered and accepted to be honoured.

Letter From Audrey Oswell - To All Atlantis Team Members
Letter From Audrey Oswell - To All Atlantis Team Members

May 18, 2021

I promised from the beginning of this global pandemic that I would be transparent and forthcoming in sharing information with all of you. Each time we talked, I shared the good news and bad news, but today I must share some sad news.

When previously asked about redundancies, I have said that it was too soon to make that decision. Today, I must confirm that we are reducing the size of our Atlantis workforce.

For Atlantis, whose sole purpose is centered around people serving people, this is incredibly difficult to confront. I will share how we arrived at this decision and what we will do for those impacted.

Let me start with how we arrived at this decision. We are collectively living through the worst pandemic of our lifetime, and as it began to unfold, global travel came to a standstill. Our business suffered significant losses, and in response, we drastically cut costs that touched nearly every corner of Atlantis.

Truth and consequences

May 13, 2021

One of the amazing things about life is that sometimes the truth in front of us goes unrecognized and we end up with unanticipated consequences that should have been anticipated. The Bible says sometimes we deceive ourselves. Let's take for example political corruption - the truth is that there is a long list of politicians and public officials who have succumbed to the temptation to misappropriate funds or use their positions as an advantage to gain favor or benefit.

OPEN LETTER TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE BAHAMAS
OPEN LETTER TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE BAHAMAS

April 12, 2021

I listened with bated breath recently while you were on a trip to Ragged Island, where you were asked by a reporter to state your opinion on oil drilling in our archipelagic waters. Your response was one of great admiration for me and anyone whose desire is to pass these pristine and national waters on to future generations totally unspoiled. There was absolutely no equivocation in your words. Your passion was such that none could possibly judge them as simply utterances from the lips of a conflicted leader. Your words were such that anyone of keen perception could judge them only to be directly from the heart which tells no lies.

Undoubtedly and unquestionably, your expressions carried enormous wisdom, knowledge and knowingness. You, spontaneously and succinctly, put forth all the elements to the country, primarily, and to any other entity which would fancy any notion to venture into the sacred area of the bosom, the breast, belly and womb of our mother ocean to knowingly or ignorantly cause havoc in our greatest and most precious and treasured natural recourse.
