Tents started sprouting everywhere there seemed to be a space that wasn’t al- ready ‘taken’ with some kind of building or new development. As the years go by, there seems to be less ‘free’ beach space available, but this didn’t seem to damp- en anyone’s enthusiasm.

Smith Bar- cadere is always a favorite place, and Venita Francis and her family had made a good camp site. There were several tents, including a little, brightly colour- ed children’s tent: “That’s for our dog,” she said.

At the back, in the thick, cool shade of the big sea grape trees, was the kitchen areaor‘caboose,’bringingbackthoughts of the old days when the caboose used to burn wood (sea grape wood was es- pecially good) and used to be separate from the home. These days, the kitch- en area was powered by propane gas stoves, but there was a more traditional �ire out the front, by the sea – a pile of sticks and leaves and hunks of wood all ready to be lit “In case the mosquitoes come out tonight.” “This is the whole Douglas clan here. It’s just a time for gathering and remi- niscing on days –gone- by,” Ms Francis said.

The Douglas clan had been in for some traditional tasty treats, too. “We’ve had corn top custard, it’s a heavy cake with the corn settling on the bottom and all the nice creamy stuff on the top. It’s delicious,” she said. “Later on we are going to have the real old time Cayman cassava and yam cake.

Roacillia Welcome and her family has been Easter camping for at least �ifteen years. “Locals celebrate Easter by camp- ing out on the beach, and coming to- gether, remembering the reason for the season and just having a good time,” she said, as she swept the sandy ‘yard’ area outside her tent. “There are about eight of us here now. We’ve been cooking – pork chops, chicken, pig tail and beans and later we are going out on the boat to catch �ish, and we’ve been eating �ish run down, and �ish and fritters – all old- time foods,” she added.

“And we’ve been playing games, too,” she said, pointing at the large volleyball net stretched across the beach.

‘Hopeful- ly we’ll get the Ludi board out later, too.” In case you don’t know, Ludi boards are a lovely traditional Caribbean game. The game originally came from India but has been adopted all across the region, and up to four players can play at a time, so it is really a great family game. The object is to be the �irst player to move all mark- ers from the starting base to the home base in a clockwise direction across the board.’ Treye Welcome, 17 said “Camping is fun. You get a chance to come out and enjoy yourself and get free from all the ‘home stuff.’ You just chill with your fam- ily and stuff.

We’ve gone �ishing on the boat, snorkeling,’ Jamie, 25, camping up in West Bay was also remembering the reason for the season: “it’s all about Jesus making a sacri�ice for our lives, every one of us.” Said ‘On Good Friday they cruci�ied him and he sacri�iced his life for us.”  Easter Camping ...

Political Scientists have offered pre- cise de�initions of political parties. An- tony Downs says ‘“A political party is a team of men seeking to control the gov- erning apparatus by gaining of�ice in a duly constituted election’’. He would do better to say ‘a team of persons instead of a ‘team of men’.’ Giovanni Sartori writes that a political party is “any political group identi�ied by an of�icial label that presents at elec- tions, and is capable of placing through election, candidates for public of�ice.” In their paper ‘ Political Parties: Func- tions and Organization in Democrat- ic Societies’ Wilhelm Hofmeister and Karsten Grabow give a pretty compre- hensive de�inition: ‘ Parties can there- fore be understood as permanent as- sociations of citizens that are based on free membership and a programme, and which are anxious to occupy through the path of elections, the politically decisive positions of the country with their team of leaders, in order to materialize sug- gestions for resolving outstanding prob- lems.

The means of elections implies the competition of at least two parties’. They also outlined their functions. Political parties express in organized ways the thinking of citizens, they bring together various interests, they select, present and nurture new political lead- ers, they develop political programmes and, when they win an election, they organize the government. Political par- ties, they argue, also ‘contribute to the legitimacy of the political system’ by ‘an- choring the system in the consciousness of citizens.’ These are critical functions that affect the way of life of every citizen.

Political parties are key to the democratic pro- cess. Citizens have a right to know how they make decisions and how they are funded.

But how are political parties fund- ed? What are the sources of their mon- eys? Why should the citizens know who donate to political parties? Because of the decisive impacts of political parties on the lives of citizens, these institutions and their activities must be transparent. The International Institute for Democ- racy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA, 2012), points out that In eighty �ive (85) per cent of democracies �inancial reports from political parties and can- didates are made public; in eighty one (81) per cent identities of major donors must be revealed.

Yet, this is surprisingly not the case in some Caribbean countries.

It is well known, as the National Integ- rity Action in Jamaica, led by the anticor- ruption campaigner, Professor Munroe, keeps pointing out, unregulated money poses risks to democracy. ‘Big Money , whether commercial or criminal exerts undue in�luence and can get favours or kickbacks in various forms such as award of contracts and sub-con- tracts; granting of tax waivers; granting of licences and approvals; protection from the law enforcement; position of in- �luence on public boards and otherwise.’ We need to know because we do not want the control of candidates by �inan- ciers neither do we want dirty or illicit money corrupting the system.

The National Integrity Action, Jamai- ca, has noted for example that: ‘There’s evidence of tainted money funding Jamaican political parties. Turks and Caicos Island Supreme Court Con�isca- tion Order (April, 2012), Regina v. Da- vid Smith, speci�ied US$5M and US$2M from that principal of an unregulated �i- nancial organization to the JLP and PNP, respectively in 2007.’ The way in which political parties are funded can also make for an uneven playing �ield as those with less money are less competitive.

For these reasons, the campaigners in the Caribbean have been asking for the following as outlined by Munroe: • ‘Register political parties • Set contribution and expenditure limits • Declare unregulated �inancial or- ganizations (OLINT types) “impermissi- ble donors” • Disclose publicly big donors and contributions from persons with cur- rent government contracts.

• Bar public sector entities from cam- paign related advertising • Introduce regulated public funding • Establish a robust monitoring and enforcement system.’ These are great ideas. Does the local legislation and practice meet up? Let us examine this in the next article.   Dr. Livingston Smith is a Professor at the University College of the Cayman Islands.

ly much-loved aspects of a Caribbean carnival, including a steel pan event, a Soca monarch, and of course, the high- ly anticipated parade, where hundreds gather in full costume to dance and have some fun. Costume is therefore a vital part of the entire CayMAS experience. The National gallery’s Director, Na- talie Urquhart said: “The National Gallery was proud to partner with CayMAS for the Art of the Jump. It was a vibrant evening where models were transformed into living sculptures and local designers took cen- tre stage. We hope to see more home grown design featured in carnival and look forward to collaborating with Cay- MAS on a series of costume workshops in the coming months.” Craig Frederick, owner of Swanky In- ternational and a director of CayMAS, said the National Gallery event was a great way to showcase what goes into the making of these gorgeous and opu- lent costumes, elevating them to an art form.

“We have some great young Caymani- an designers now involved in the art of costume making and what we are try- ing to do is highlight the fact that these designers are really creating a piece of art when they make the costumes,” he said. Design art Janelle Rivers started designing cos- tumes for CayMas two years ago on behalf of Swanky International. Janelle said she was motivated to create the costumes “for the love of carnival, the beautiful colours, unity of the people, and the vibes.” “I wanted to explore my creative side, and it gives me great pleasure come up with new ideas and designs,” she con- �irmed.

For production, the Swanky Interna- tional designers recreate hundreds of costumes (Janelle estimates from 1,400 to 1,500) for CayMas Carnival. “But I do enjoy making individuals as it is a one-of-a-kind piece,” Janelle said, con�irming that each costume is varied and the time it takes depends on the theme and style of the carnival for that year, and how big the design budget is. The National Gallery event was im- portant because it put the word out about the awesome local talent Cayman possessed, it helped promote CayMAS, and helped to promote unity among all nationalities, Janelle said. This year has been Danielle Watler’s �irst time designing costumes, her �irst being for Jamaica’s carnival this year.

“My husband John Watler and I then started our own band in Cayman, called Renegade Mas, and in total I did six de- signs for Cayman (four designs for Fresh Carnival with Batabano and two designs with sponsor Ryde Cayman for Cay- MAS),” she said.

Carnival is in her veins, she advised. “I have always loved creating and, as a Caribbean girl, carnival has always been a huge part of my culture. I grew up as they say with “soca in my veins”,” she con�irmed. “Every year I would parade around Cayman in a costume with my own personal touch and persons would always say, “when are you going to de- sign your own section, woman?!” and here I am.” Danielle said she spends time re- searching designs, patterns, accessories, past costumes, cultures, etc. “Sometimes it may even stem from my mood at a particular moment or a mes- sage I want to portray,” she added.

Danielle said she has been a “hid- den creative and designer” for so many years.

“To recently rediscover and then share my artistic passion with a room of creative enthusiasts is truly heartwarm- ing and empowering. To be recognised and accepted for it- this is a dream come true,” she con�irmed. Mackenzie Rose Brown is the third young designer to have been featured at the National Gallery event. She said she has been designing since she was about four years old and designed the costume worn by Miss Cayman Islands 2016 Monyque Brooks that she wore to the Miss Universe Pageant.

“I am well trained on a sewing machine from ear- ly on. I grew up in Edmonton, Canada and was a participant in Cariwest (our carnival) since small. I've been designing Carnival costumes since I was 16,” she said. Mackenzie said she got her inspiration from all over. “I am an evening wear, pageant and bridal wear designer and try to just let my imagination run wild,” she con�irmed. Mackenzie said the National Gallery was an im- portant platform for the constant preservation, display and education of art, and artistry “on our little slice of paradise”.

“I am proud to be able to say I am a tiny piece of this.

Art and creativity are what really keeps hu- mankind happy and resilient,” she stated. Building up interest Craig and his fellow CayMAS board members, Brent McLean, Rachel Smith, Anthony Ramoon, Keith Tibbetts III and chairman Wayne Kirkcon- nell, are keen to build up the CayMAS carnival so it becomes an indelible part of Cayman’s overall tourism product, with corporate and Government sponsorship becoming more prominent. “As one of the safest and most desirable carnivals to attend in the region, CayMAS will create a syner- gy between our tourism and �inancial services sec- tors, merging the two into a colourful and delight- ful experience that we can promote and broadcast to the rest of the world,” Wayne said.

“We are building on support that we’ve received from the National Gallery and next year we hope to make the National Gallery event bigger and better, with performing artists taking part as well,” Craig advised.

Wayne added that as well as the performing art- ists who took part in the Art of the Jump this year – pan players and Soca Monarch (vocalists), their future focus is on photography and artists, as they intend to take the event directly to the creators and challenge them to paint ‘Carnival’, as well as launch a challenge to photographers to enter work from 2018 into their 2019 Art of the Jump event.  National Gallery celebrates the art of carnival ...

and St. Ignatius community members We are so fortunate to have Camana Bay as a centre for so many great dining choices, the diversity and quality of food anddrinkonofferahugedrawforvisitors and locals alike. One stop that is a regular on our dining calendar is the brilliant Jes- sie’s Juice Bar & Café, located right next to Anytime Fitness gym. It’s a small but perfectly formed little café that has just a few seats indoors and out, but mainly caters to the take out diner, searching for a healthy bite for breakfast or lunch or something to munch on in between times. Health and wellness is the focus for this place, with only wholesome ‘real’ foods on the menu, good choices for those with dietary restrictions (vege- tarians, vegans, gluten intolerant) and plenty of ‘superfoods’ and nutrient-rich ingredients promised in every bite.

They also have a great selection of house- baked goodies that you know are not going to weigh you down but will satisfy your mid-morning/afternoon cravings. As the name suggests, juices are a focus for the café but by no means the only rea- son to visit. Our taste buds always imme- diately run into overdrive when we read the juice menu – Clockwork Orange is a fruity fave with carrot, orange, lemon and ginger (you can opt out of the ginger), as well as the citrusy Frisky Sour (grape- fruit, orange, lemon and lime) and Pink Ginger (beet, carrot, pineapple, apple and ginger). We opted for a fruit punch made with watermelon, orange and pineapple – none of that sugary canned stuff here, and a watermelon with ginger, both of which added a zing to our lunchtime dining.

Other beverage choices that you ought to try are their ‘Jacked Up Smoothies’ that have an added kick of Panther es- presso to keep you awake all day, their Super Smoothies that are full of super- foods like spinach, avocado and banana, and juice based smoothies, such as their fun sounding Carmen Miranda (orange, pineapple and watermelon juice with strawberry, peach, mango and banana – could they �it any more fruits in?). But to visit Jessie’s Juice and not enjoy their marvelous food would be a shame, so we opted for the delightfully moreish avocado and tomato toast with basil and olive oil on rye bread and a hummus and chutney wrap for the vegan among us.

We no- ticed some excellent and �illing looking salads being served at ad- jacent tables, which could have been the impressive sounding Buddha bowl (all the rage right now) �illed with radicchio, spin- ach, arugula, zucchini noodles, beet, chick- peas, olives, radish, tomato and avocado, or perhaps the breakfast salad (served all day), which consists of steamed egg, av- ocado, tomato, spinach, capers, �lourless nutty croutons and a yoghurt ranch. The great thing about Jessie’s food is that it tastes like the actual food it promises – the rye bread was crunchy and dark and delicious and the avocado creamy, while the hummus wrap’s chut- ney made from eggplant was really deli- ciously �lavoured as well.

If you want to remind yourself of what real food tastes like then de�initely stop by Jessie’s Juices and you won’t be dis- appointed.  Way more than juice at Jessie’s Juice Bar A TA S T E O F C L A S S  Colourful juices  Wraps are a vegan’s delight  A healthy plateful at Jessies Juice Bar  Delicious lunch at Jessies Juice bar  Avo and tomato on rye toast C � T���� Friday, April 6, 2018 | Issue No 202 PAGE 9 TASTE OF CLASS

Heavy drinkers who cut back to moderate drinking can lower their systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) by 2 to 4 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and their diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number in a blood pressure reading) by 1 to 2 mm Hg.

Heavy drinkers who want to lower blood pressure should slowly reduce how much they drink over one to two weeks. Heavy drinkers who stop suddenly risk developing severe high blood pressure for several days.

If you have high blood pressure, avoid alcohol or drink alcohol only in moderation. Moderate drinking is generally considered to be: - Two drinks a day for men younger than age 65 - One drink a day for men age 65 and older - One drink a day for women of any age A drink is 12 ounces (355 milliliters) of beer, 5 ounces (148 milliliters) of wine or 1.5 ounces (44 milliliters) of 80-proof distilled spirits. Keep in mind that alcohol contains calories and may contribute to unwanted weight gain — a risk factor for high blood pressure.

Also, alcohol can interfere with the effectiveness and increase the side effects of some blood pressure medications.

The registration is required by the implementation of a new online electronic system for entry declaration. Effective 1 November 2017, the Cayman Islands Customs Department will implement the new system. This will require importers to complete and submit entries electronically to Customs using the new gateway portal COLS (Customs Online System). Importers will be able to access the portal through the website www.customs.gov.ky.

For individuals who have not yet received training in the use of the system, Customs will provide in-house training. However,beforetheycanuseCOLS,importerswillhavetobeformallyregisteredandreco gnisedasanimporterbyCustoms. This will require each individual to come in and provide Customs with relevant information including a government-issued identification, e.g., driver’s licence or passport. Additionally, it will be necessary for companies and businesses to provide their business licence and/or companies registration including directorship.

As a result, Customs will begin the registration process starting Monday, 16 October through 27 October 2017, from 8:30am to 4:00pm Monday to Friday.

Registration will take place on the 1st floor of Customs Headquarters, located at #42 Owens Roberts Drive (locally known as Airport Road). However, if they miss this period to be registered, Customs will continue to register importers during normal business hours. Although most importers were previously registered in the old system, it is necessary for all importers to be registered in the new system. Once registered with Customs, importers can then submit entries electronically and do business with Customs, without having to attend in person.

West Indies’ chairman of selectors Courtney Browne has defended his pan- el’s decision-making process, stating that “selectors’ judgement is based on sound selection criteria” considering the depleted squad chosen for the three- match Twenty20 International series in Pakistan which led to a whitewash. Browne, who took over from the leg- endary Clive Lloyd two years ago, com- menced his controversial chairmanship stint by sacking double World Cup-win- ning captain Darren Sammy, developed a policy trend that has left many Win- dies fans, media and players generally befuddled. He made a rare public media comment outside his usual press state- ments via Cricket West Indies communi- cations emails.

Browne was asked to clarify why Ja- son Mohammed was chosen as captain for the Pakistan series when he was dropped during World Cup quali�iers, over the recalled Denesh Ramdin, who leads Mohammed in domestic cricket for T&T. “Jason Mohammed is our vice-captain and will lead the team now that Carlos Brathwaite is unavailable,” said Browne. This regurgitated point from the CWI press release failed to answer the ques- tion and is further example how the se- lection panel of Browne, Travis Dowlin and Eldine Baptiste rewards mediocrity has devalued the West Indies captaincy by allowing any player to have the job without merit.

Another point was all-rounder Rak- heem Cornwall’s non-selection. Despite being the most talked about player in the current West Indies A team, he was overlooked, but his teammates Andre McCarthy and Odean Smith were called up. Browne was questioned about where Cornwall was in his Windies team selec- tion plans and if his perceived weight is- sues is in�luencing the selectors’ judge- ment in picking him for international cricket. Browne said: “Cornwall is still a work in progress and has just started a pro- gramme with our high-performance team which includes a full conditioning programme to try to bring him in line with acceptable conditioning standards.

Selectors’ judgement is based on sound selection criteria.” With obvious security concerns, Indi- an Premier League commitments, and selectors in some instances not choos- ing to consider certain players, most notably Sammy, who is a crowd favour- ite in Pakistan, the Windies were under strength in Pakistan. The experience in the squad was provided from the trio of 37-year-olds Samuel Badree, Marlon Samuels and Rayad Emrit.  Browne explains dubious selection process  West Indies are still in disarray Anthony Davis is a magni�icent defender for the New Orleans Pelicans and when it comes to phys- ical attributes he is renowned for his unibrow, a feature that is widely mentioned, celebrated and mocked on social media.

He also has an acute sense of humour. So, when Davis posted a video of supposedly shaving off his celebrated unibrow on Saturday, it came as no surprise that he later revealed it was only a prank. It happened on the eve of April Fool’s Day. It was an April Fool's joke after all. Davis took to Instagram Sunday to reveal his eyebrow was intact. "Come on y’all!!! Y’all knew I wasn’t cutting It. #AprilFool’s #GotY’all." Davis posted. However, the sentiment seems to be there for such a dramatic personal grooming transforma- tion. Davis posted a Twitter poll last week ask- ing whether he should do it, and the �inal tally of 631,067 votes ran 51-49 in favour of a split.

Nevertheless, Davis is clearly not ready for such a big change, after all. But at least he is �i- nally reaching the potential he showed at college which generated enormous hype when he joined the paid game.

Coming out of college, Davis was supposed to be the NBA's next great defensive giant, thwarting opponents with the intimidating rim protection of a throwback player. He was hyper-athletic and at almost 7-ft tall with an amazing wingspan, in college he dominat- ed the NCAA defensive player of the year award. On offense, he was less promising with the explo- siveness to �inish around the rim and was also a questionable jumper and lacked polish in attack. Aspects of his game can be compared to the likes of legends like Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan. Six years on and Davis is amid a late-season surge as the MVP runner-up to standout LeBron James.

Davis has remained a strong shot-blocker, rank- ing second in the NBA with 2.2 blocks per game this season, and he has made the NBA All-Defense second team twice in the past three seasons. But, surprisingly, scoring has become his forte as a pro. He is second in NBA points scored this season with an ef�icient 28.2 points per game on 61.6 percent shooting, and his consistency is shown by �inishing in the top seven in scoring for four straight seasons. Davis worked hard on his per- ceived scoring weaknesses, and he's now made them strengths in dribbling and jump shots. His MVP candidacy next season depends on leading the Pelicans to a big start and helping the team maintain a great record throughout.

If he can do those two things while maintaining his new peak, the 25-year-old from Chicago may just be able to join his stylistic predecessors in hoist- ing the MVP trophy next campaign  Adam Peaty is almost unbeatable at breaststroke Adam Peaty is on a mission to be the greatest swimmer in the post-Michael Phelps era.

The breaststroke maestro is only 23 yet already he is Olympic, world, European and Commonwealth champi- on, unbeaten in almost four years. He likens his dom- inance to how Usain Bolt swept all before him in his prime. Merely beating the opposition is not enough for the Brit, he wants to crush them and all his world re- cords too. At the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast Peaty aims to extend that remarkable winning run and only the foolish would bet against him. But his moti- vation is not purely more sil- verware, he wants to heavily cash in too.

The son of Mark, a super- market caretaker, and Car- oline, a nursery manager, Peaty grew up modestly in Uttoxeter in Staffordshire and is inspired by the trans- formative effect his money has on their lives.

“I didn’t come from a back- ground of wealth like a lot of athletes, so I think it does motivate me a lot more than the normal athlete,” he said. “It’s great to give back to peo- ple who have supported you, friends and family alike. “I am obsessed with in- creasing my performance year on year and there are external factors of �inance, your family, your future fam- ily. Those are the things that motivate me as well.” Peaty has 26 senior career medals and wants to at least double that number before retiring from the 50 me- tre and 100m breaststroke. Short of injury or false start- ing, Peaty’s dominance looks set to continue down under over the next two weeks.
