SHANTAYAÉ Grant, Jamaica Observer teenAGE writer, has been selected as a valedictorian for the 2014 graduating class of the Faculty of Humanities and Education at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona.

"To be chosen to represent the graduating class of Humanities and Education is beyond an honour. This, I believe, is validation for my years of hard work and dedication.

IN JAMAICA: Daylight murder sparks fear Unease on Kensington Crescent after gunmen chase, kill 43 y-o man Collin Mann

BY KIMMO MATTHEWS Observer staff reporter matthewsk@jamaicaobserver.com  Thursday, October 30, 2014    
THE mid-morning murder of a man outside an apartment complex on the outskirts of New Kingston yesterday has triggered fear among residents and staff at businesses in the area.
Police at the scene of yesterday’s murder of a man by gunmen
 on Kensington Crescent on the outskirts of New Kingston.
Detectives from the Kingston and St Andrew Major Investigation Task Force report that about 11:30 am Collin Mann, 43, and another individual were standing at the entrance to the complex on Kensington Crescent when a group of armed men, travelling in a car, drove up and alighted from the vehicle.
Mann, the Jamaica Observer was told, made a desperate attempt to escape but was chased and shot several times in the street.
The other individual, who was injured, was rushed to hospital where he has been admitted.
"Reports we received are that close to midday the two men were at the complex when they were attacked by criminals who shot them several times and then escaped in a waiting motor car," said one detective.
Police said a motive has not been identified, but explained that they were following several leads, one of them being that the attack, which they believe could be a contract killing, was linked to the shooting death of a couple in Lea's Flat, Red Hills, St Andrew over a week ago.
That, however, has not eased the fear of some residents, many of whom work in and around New Kingston and in offices in the vicinity of yesterday's brazen murder. more

The Huffington Post | By Michael McLaughlin Email Posted: 10/29/2014 7:45 pm EDT

Knight, the co-founder of Death Row Records, faces life in prison because of a previous conviction for assault with a deadly weapon, KVVU reports. The Associated Press reports that the charge carries a possible 30-year sentence for Knight.

Historic Leap (GREAT NEWS): Jamaica Surges 36 Places In Doing Business Rankings....jumped 36 places to 58 among 189 economies worldwide, according to the just-released Doing Business 2015 report. Last year, Jamaica ranked 94.

Avia Collinder, Business Reporter Published: Wednesday | October 29, 2014
Jamaica has achieved the Caribbean region's highest ranking on the ease of doing business, and has jumped 36 places to 58 among 189 economies worldwide, according to the just-released Doing Business 2015 report.
Last year, Jamaica ranked 94. Its vault up the rankings breaks a nine-year streak of decline.
However, the island has received a rap on the knuckles for the slow place of developing electronic interfaces that accompany its extensive reforms and for higher taxation costs.
Doing Business is produced annually by the World Bank, and is usually dated the year ahead of its actual release.
The 2015 report tracks performance from June 2, 2013 to June 1, 2014.
The new report indicates that six of 12 economies in the Caribbean - The Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St Kitts-Nevis, St Lucia, and Trinidad & Tobago - implemented at least one regulatory reform making it easier to do business in the year of review.
Overall, they implemented 12 reforms, a historic high for the region.
The World Bank noted reforms for Jamaica in the areas of starting a business, getting electricity connections, getting credit, and paying taxes.
An improved assessment of business-friendliness was widely expected for Jamaica, given its ongoing economic reforms agreed with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme - under which gains have been praised both by the IMF's technical team as well as head of the agency, Managing Director Christine Lagarde. more

Jamaica has highest number of illegal immigrants in Trinidad says Trinidad's Minister of National Security...

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 | 1:52 AM  
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad - There is no discrimination in the treatment of African illegal immigrants, National Security Minister Gary Griffith said yesterday.
He said there was absolutely no degree of profiling or prejudice by authorities in dealing with illegal immigrants.
Trinidad's Minister of National Security - Gary Griffith
“If you are an illegal immigrant, whether you are from African, the Caribbean or Mars, you are breaking the law and all I am doing as Minister is ensuring that the policy (with respect to illegal immigrants) is adhered to and enforced,” he said.
Griffith said there were 131 illegal immigrants at the Detention Centre, of which 23, or 17 per cent, are Africans (the bulk coming from Nigeria (14) and Ghana (7).
He said Jamaica made up the highest number (46 per cent of the 131) and Guyanese (23 per cent). The rest of those detained came from Venezuela, Bangladesh, China, Colombia, Pakistan, Barbados, Romania, Vietnam, Portugal, Senegal and Dominica.
He was responding to a release issued by the Emancipation Support Committee of Trinidad and Tobago which spoke of the plight of African illegal immigrants at the Immigration Detention Centre in Aripo and which urged Government to review its policy with respect to the deportation on Africans at the Centre in the light of Griffith’s statements about an “amnesty” to illegal immigrants. more

Four-time Olympic medallist Ato Boldon in sex scandal

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 | 2:00 AM    
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad - Four-time Olympic medallist Ato Boldon has said reports of a sex scandal involving him and Nova Peris, Australia’s first indigenous Olympic gold medallist and senator, were a gross fabrication.
Otto Bolden
The report, published in the Northern Territory (NT) News yesterday in Australia, alleges Boldon and Peris had an extra-marital affair back in 2010, when he was “handpicked” by Peris, now a senator, to run the ten-day Jump Start to London training programme.
The paper also alleged in its breaking story yesterday Peris used taxpayers’ funds to finance her “extra martial sexual tryst” with the then 35-year-old Boldon back then.
However, in a statement on his Facebook page yesterday, Boldon accused NT News of gross fabrications, saying Peris “is a former training partner of mine and has been a friend for almost 20 years”.
Boldon said his trip to Australia back in 2010 was for the purpose of holding several youth clinics and that it was a successful undertaking.
“The trip was co-organised by one of my now-deceased colleagues at Athletics Australia,” Boldon said, adding: “I will be following the senator’s lead, including, but not limited to, pursuing all legal action possible for this malicious misrepresentation of the details surrounding my presence in Australia in 2010.” more

Windowless Airplanes Of The Future Look Exciting... And Terrifying....The new aircraft design concept from the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) does away with tiny airplane windows, thus allowing for a thinner and lighter fuselage, lower airfare maybe. Would Board A Windowless Airplane? (VIDEO)

The Huffington Post | By Ed Mazza Email Posted: 10/28/2014 3:15 am EDT 
There's some new concept art out showing a possible airplane of the not-too-distant future. And depending on how you feel about flying, these images will either be exhilarating or terrifying.
View image on TwitterThe new aircraft design concept from the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) does away with tiny airplane windows, thus allowing for a thinner and lighter fuselage. But if you're afraid of heights, don't celebrate just yet because the interior walls themselves would become video displays for cameras mounted outside, essentially turning the entire aircraft into one giant window.
You can see more in the clip above.
View image on TwitterThen again, the displays don't have to show what's really outside. Some people are already having fun with the concept on Twitter:Along with revealing thrilling/frightening views of the world (or the Death Star), the giant displays can highlight landmarks and provide important flight information. Of course, they can also be used to show ads: more
