A mass of Saharan dust being transported by an Atlantic High Pressure circulation should blanket the island chain this week. Persons with respiratory conditions should be aware that dust concentrations could significantly increase by Monday afternoon and PM2.5 levels could peak near 22µg/m3 while PM10 levels peak near 39µg/m3 during Tuesday. Hazy conditions of varying intensity could reduce visibility and persist for a few days.
Meanwhile, lower-level moisture associated with a weak tropical wave is expected to cross our area late Tuesday into Wednesday with occasional showers alternating with hazy conditions.
South-easterly moderate to fresh (20 - 40 km/h) breeze should continue bringing equatorial moisture/showers across our area. A reduction in speeds to moderate (20 - 30 km/h) is expected late Tuesday into Wednesday with a slight backing to easterly direction.
Slight to moderate sea conditions are expected with easterly sea-swells ranging 0.6m to 1.2m on the west coasts and 1.2m to 1.8m east coasts.
Barometric readings should slightly rise to range 1014mb to 1017mb across our area as the High Pressure builds.
Notes: Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low pressure located over the Bay of Campeche have become a little better organized since yesterday. However, recent satellite-based wind data indicate that the circulation of the low is elongated and poorly defined. This system is expected to move slowly northwestward toward the northeastern coast of Mexico, and could become a tropical cyclone before it moves inland in a day or two.
Tropical waves (TW) between west coast Africa and Lesser Antilles:
Along 19W from 11N southward w/ Scattered moderate with embedded isolated strong convection associated with this wave is noted from 03N-08N between the coast of Africa and 22W...2340 miles away… vicinity around Tuesday 11th
Along 35W from 11N southward w/ Scattered moderate convection where wave meets ITCZ from 04N-06N between 35W-38W and surge of moistened air on Total Precipitable Water... 1380miles away…vicinity around late Friday/Saturday 7th
Along 54W from 13N southward w/ Isolated showers and tstorms are on either side of wave axis south of 10N and will enhance showers and tstorms over the Lesser Antilles Tuesday/Wednesday 4th…420miles away
The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO), with support from the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Red Cross Society, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), through its Office for Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA); will conduct a Shelter and Shelter Management Training Workshop, from Tuesday 4th to Thursday 6th June, 2019.
The workshop targets Shelter Managers and members of the Shelter Management teams.
The objective of the workshop is to train key personnel about the:
The workshop will be held at NEMO’s conference room, beginning 8:30 a.m. each day. The opening ceremony will take place on Tuesday 4th June, at 8:30 a.m.
Saturday, June 1st marks the officially start of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Historically across the Atlantic Basin, the averages for named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher) and major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher) are 12, 6 and 2 respectively.
This year, the U.S National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are forecasting a “near normal” season with 9 to 15 named storms; 4 to 8 of which could become hurricanes, while 2 to 4 are expecting to evolve into major hurricanes. The Outlook reflects the ongoing El Niño which is expected to persist and suppress the intensity of the hurricane season.
It should be noted that these forecasts are based on probabilities and the analysis of historical data. They
are intended to provide an estimate of activity to be experienced during the upcoming season.
Regardless of what the seasonal forecast is, one must be reminded that a disaster can occur from only one
hurricane, tropical storm, or even from a lesser developed system. It is therefore important for individuals, businesses and Government entities to recognize their vulnerability, and take the necessary measures to reduce impacts of heavy rainfall, strong winds and storm surge.
A special appeal is extended to fishers and other marine operators as they are usually the first to be impacted by approaching weather systems at sea. Please be alert during this time of the year. In keeping our mandate, The Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services wishes to reassure the public that it will continue to closely monitor weather conditions around Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and issue the necessary public advisories in a timely manner. We will also coordinate with the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) about the likely hazards accompanying these systems.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines took a major step towards a cleaner and more secure energy future on Monday, May 6, launching a multi-million dollar geothermal energy-drilling project made possible with financing mobilised by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
CDB secured USD 27 million (mn) in financing for the project through contributions from partners, including the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), the European Union’s Caribbean Investment Facility (EU-CIF) and the Government of New Zealand.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, Vice President (Operations) of CDB, Monica La Bennett shared the context behind the Bank’s heightened involvement in of the renewable energy sector in recent years.
“Over the past five years, the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency has been the focus of the Bank as a means of increasing energy security in many of our Borrowing Member Countries. The cost of energy in the Region is among the highest globally; and this impacts our competitiveness, [and] growth prospects and makes us vulnerable to oil price volatility. Thus, CDB has been supporting the use of our natural resources- solar, wind and geothermal - to produce clean and lower cost energy,” said La Bennett.
The Vice President thanked CDB’s partners for their “vision and … willingness to collaborate” on the project as well as the “scale and timeliness” of their various contributions. These contributions included:
“These grants positioned ourselves to have greater ownership for the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines through increased equity contribution that would result in a decrease in the price to electricity consumers,” said Prime Minister Gonsalves.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines is the first country to benefit from investment funding under GeoSmart, CDB’s initiative to mobilise and provide appropriate technical expertise and concessional financing to support the various stages of geothermal energy development projects in Eastern Caribbean Countries.
In the book A Defense of Abortion, author and philosopher David Boonin writes: “A human fetus, after all, is simply a human being at a very early stage in his or her development.”
If we acknowledge the humanity of the preborn child, one must further ask – does every human being have a right to life? Or is this right held only by those humans with particular characteristics that come and go at various points throughout their lives?
Pro-life apologist and frequent Focus on the Family Broadcast guest, Scott Klusendorf, shares the following:
Pro-life advocates contend there is no morally significant difference between the embryo you once were and the adult you are today that would justify killing you at that earlier stage of development. Differences of size, level of development, environment and degree of dependency are not good reasons for saying you had no right to life then but you do now.
Author Stephen Schwarz developed the acronym SLED as a helpful reminder of these non-essential differences:
Size: You were smaller as an embryo, but since when does your body size determine value?
Level of Development: It’s true that you were less developed as an embryo, but 6-month-olds are less physically and mentally developed than teenagers, and we don’t argue that we can kill them.
Environment: Where you are located has no bearing on what you are. How does a journey of 8 inches down the birth canal change the essential nature of the unborn from a being we can kill to one we can’t?
Degree of Dependency: Sure, you depended on your mother for survival while in the womb, but since when does dependence on another human mean we can kill you? (Consider conjoined twins, for example.)
In short, humans are equal by nature, not function. Although they differ immensely in their respective degrees of development, they are nonetheless equal because they share a common human nature – and they had that human nature from the moment they began to exist.
If I am wrong about this, then human equality is a fiction. Think, for a moment, about your 10 closest friends. Would you agree that each of them has the same basic rights and that each should be treated equally? Yet if all of them should be treated equally, there must be some quality they all share that justifies that equal treatment.
What is that characteristic? Only this: We all have the same human nature.

Sunday was World TB day. But, like most persons, I only learnt about this day in 2018. Maybe my previous post was your first intake of World Tuberculosis Day. Truth be told, I have a lil fear of needles. Yes. Big hard back man like me… No matter, I’ve learnt what this disease is and the number of fatalities it has per year, and I’m ready to help to prevent this deadly disease.
Here is what you need to know about TB. Tuberculosis (TB) is an airborne bacterial disease brought about by the life form Mycobacterium tuberculosis that principally influences the lungs, albeit different organs and tissues might be included.
TB is spread from individual to individual through the air. At the point when an individual with TB in their lungs or throat hacks, snickers, wheezes, sings, or even talks, the germs that reason TB may spread through the air. In the event that someone else takes in these germs quite possibly, they will wind up tainted with tuberculosis. Not to freeze, it is difficult to wind up tainted with tuberculosis. As a rule, an individual must be near somebody with TB illness for an extended period of time. TB is generally spread between relatives, dear companions, and individuals who work or live respectively. TB is spread most effectively in shut spaces over a significant lot of time.
With appropriate TB treatment, somebody with TB will in all respects rapidly not be irresistible thus can never again spread TB to other people. In the event that somebody isn't on treatment, at that point safeguards, for example, hack manners must be taken to keep TB from spreading starting with one grown-up then onto the next. Anything which builds the number of individuals tainted by each irresistible individual, for example, inadequate treatment due to tranquilize safe TB, diminishes the general impact of the principle TB counteractive action endeavours. The nearness of TB and HIV disease together likewise builds the quantity of individuals contaminated by each irresistible individual. Thus, all things considered, all around the quantity of individuals creating dynamic TB will increment instead of diminishing.
The vaccine called Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) was first created during the 1920s. It is a standout amongst the most generally utilized of every present antibody, and it achieves over 80% of every infant kid and new-born children in nations where it is a piece of the national youth vaccination programme.2 However, it is likewise a standout amongst the most factor immunizations in routine use. The BCG immunization has been appeared to furnish kids with magnificent security against the spread types of TB. In any case, insurance against pneumonic TB in grown-ups is variable. Since most transmission begins from grown-up instances of pneumonic TB, the BCG antibody is commonly used to secure youngsters, instead of to intrude on transmission among grown-ups. The BCG immunization will regularly result in the individual inoculated having a positive outcome to a TB skin test.

The Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the Venezuelan Institute of Culture and Cooperation Hugo Chávez Frías in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, in the framework of the commemoration of the Day of the Abolition of Slavery in Venezuela (March 24th, 1854), held the discussion “Tribute to Venezuelan Heroes and Heroines”.
The purpose of the activity was to let the Vincentian students know the importance of the legacy of some of our heroines for the history of our country and the Caribbean. "Young people must know the history of our countries, especially the Caribbean. If we know our history, we can know where we come from, we can defend our homeland and love it, “head of the Venezuelan diplomatic mission, Francisco Manuel Pérez Santana said.
In this regard, Pérez made a dissertation in relation to the validity of the Bolivarian ideology regarding the struggle for the rights of slaves brought by the colonizers to Venezuelan and Caribbean territory during the seventeenth century. "The countries of our America have a deep colonizing heritage, however our peoples have been led by men and women like José Leonardo Chirinos, GerónimoGuacamaya, Pedro Camejo, José Tomás León, among others who maintained the strength and fighting spirit to achieve the liberation of the slaves and initiated the emancipatory process of our men and women, "Pérez said.
In turn, the Academic Coordinator of the IVCC, Prof. Andreína Bermúdez Di Lorenzo made some reflections on the historical milestones of slavery in Venezuela. She pointed out that the Liberator Simón Bolívar initiated a campaign in favor of the abolition of slavery in 1816, but it did not happen until 38 years after the event, on March 24th, 1854, 161 years ago, by the then president of the Republic, José Gregorio Monagas. «Bolívar signed the execution of the decree that at that time gave a conditioned freedom to 40 thousand slaves who were in Venezuela», Bermúdez said.
In the discussionTribute to Venezuelan heroes and heroines, Pérez Santana said that one of the elements that influenced Bolívar to defend the processes of freedom in our countries is that he had two extraordinary women in his life, Negra Hipólita and Negra Matea. Two slaves who came from slave families brought from Africa, they played an important role in his development and in the feelings and character of our Liberator Simón Bolívar.
Among the pedagogical strategies developed in the discussion, the students had read aloud sessions referring to the lives of some of the Venezuelan heroines, including: Negra Matea and Negra Hipólita.
As a closing element of the activity, the students enjoyed four videos with English subtitles that reflect part of the legacy and struggle of our liberators and our Venezuelan heroes and heroines, among which: How Haiti helped to free the slaves of South America, Bolívar and Petión, Hipólita and Matea and Heroines of Venezuela are highlighted.
Teachers and fifth form students of the Adelphi High School on the island appreciated the opportunity to continue learning about some aspects of the Caribbean, in this particular case, about the Venezuelan heroes and heroines that contributed to the abolition of slavery.
The Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reiterates its commitment to consolidate the bonds of friendship between Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
