Search HISTORY OF THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY The end of the Federation meant the beginning of more serious efforts on the part of the political leaders in the Caribbean to strengthen the ties between the islands and mainland by providing for the continuance and strengthening of the areas of cooperation that existed during the Federation. To this end in mid-1962 a Common Services Conference was called to take decisions on these services, the major ones among them being the University of the West Indies (UWI), founded in 1948 and the Regional Shipping Services set up during the Federation to control the operation of the two ships donated in 1962 by the government of Canada - the Federal Palm and the Federal Maple. The Caribbean Meteorological Service was established one year after, in 1963 and along with the UWI and the Regional Shipping Service, represented the heart of Caribbean cooperation directly after the end of the Federation.

    Jamaican Island History
    BEFORE THE SPANIARDS occupied Jamaica in the early sixteenth century, the island was inhabited by the Arawak Indians, who called it Xaymaca, meaning "land of wood and springs." Lying on the trade routes between the Old and New Worlds, Jamaica served variously for centuries as a way station for Spanish galleons, a market for slaves and goods from many countries, and a prize for the Spaniards, the British, buccaneers, and entrepreneurs. By far the largest of the English-speaking islands in size and population, independent Jamaica has played a leading role within the Commonwealth Caribbean and has been active in international organizations. Jamaica's story is one of independence that began in the seventeenth century with the Maroons, runaway slaves who resisted the British colonizers by carrying out hit-and-run attacks from the interior. Their 7,000 descendants in the Cockpit Country have symbolized the fervent, sometimes belligerent, love of freedom that is ingrained in the Jamaican people as a result of both their British tutelage and their history of slavery. Independence came quietly, however, without a revolutionary struggle, apparently reflecting the lasting imprint of the British parliamentary legacy on Jamaican society. Despite its people's respect for the rule of law and the British Westminster system of government

    30. Barry McGowan | Class, Hegemony And Localism : The Southern Mining Region Of New
    A regional History of Mining and Community in south east New South Wales John Ferry, Colonial Armidale, Queensland University Press, st. lucia, 2000, p.
    Barry McGowan Historians have always been aware of the importance of localism or local loyalties in political life. This paper discusses in detail a number of large and small gold and base metal mining communities in the southern mining region of New South Wales during the nineteenth century. Aspects considered include the role of institutions such as progress associations and other more ephemeral gatherings, the nature of community debate and conflict, and the physical and economic environment. In gold mining settlements there was a much greater role for the independently minded working miners, the majority of whom fell within an aspirant middling class. By contrast, the vast majority of base metal miners and workers were employees. Localism was sometimes shaped by the hegemony which elites were able to exercise. It is argued that the specific nature of a mining community has important implications for the expression of localism.
    This paper contributes to and extends the discussion of localism by reference to a number of gold and base metal mining communities in the latter part of the nineteenth century in southern New South Wales. Some of the communities were a substantial size in their hey-day and were significant both regionally and beyond. Many others, however, were much smaller, and fit into Iris Young's category of small locales of 'personal acquaintances' where consensus was very important in shaping localism. They lacked much of the administrative infrastructure found in the larger towns. Most had no unions, councils, party branches or workers' organisations. They were essentially inward-looking, and focussed on 'bread and butter' issues. By 1900, most of them had either ceased to exist or were on their way to oblivion or rural somnambulance. Today, there is no industrial or mining infrastructure within a 'long country mile' of any of these communities.

    Living and Sharing
    The Gospel A brief hisotry of the WCG in Saint Lucia In the mid 1950's a split occured in the local congregation fo the Church of God, whose headquarters was Salem, West Virginia, USA. The division came about as a result of a decision by the leader, Mr. Andrew Dugger, to move the headquarters of the church to Jerusalem, Israel. The faction opposed to that idea broke ties with him and affiliated itself with a faction of similar views in Trinidad and made their headquarters Barataria, Trinidad. This group later split over doctrines such as whether women should preach, etc. Towards the end of the fifties, one of the members, Mr. Leo H Joseph, was introduced to the Plain Truth Magazine by the wife of a member of the opposing faction who disagreed with the doctrinal stance taken by the publisher, Mr. Herbert W Armstrong. Mr. Joseph, however, was sympathetic to the new doctrines, subscribed to the magazins and started listening to the World Tomorrow Broadcast coming from Ohio and Tennessee, on short wave radio.

    Brief administrative history The International Sanitary Bureau, precursor of the Pan American Sanitary Bureau, was established by the First General International Sanitary Convention of the American Republics held in Washington, DC., in 1902. The Bureau, "according to the resolutions adopted", consisted of a board of seven health officials, residing in five countries, who were assigned the responsibility for the receipt and distribution of information on health conditions in the American Republics and to formulate sanitary agreements and regulations so that quarantine requirements would be reduced to a minimum in respect of cholera, yellow fever, bubonic plaque, smallpox and "any other serious pestilential outbreak". These functions and responsibilities were adopted both by the Second Conference of American States (1901) and by the First General International Sanitary Convention.
    Five other international sanitary conferences held in the Americas between 1902 and 1920 approved resolutions to the effect that the Bureau would undertake the investigation of outbreaks of communicable diseases, the facilitation of commerce through the improvement of sanitary conditions in the sea-ports of the American Republics, through sewage disposal, drainage of the soil, and the destruction of mosquitoes and other vermin. However, resources available at the time in terms of staff, office space, travel and other expenses were not appropriate to allow compliance with these Conference resolutions.

In considering its report and draft conclusions and recommendations contained therein with a view to a further review by the Committee at United Nations Headquarters in New York before taking action, the Seminar also concluded that: in the process of decolonization, there was no alternative to the principle of self-determination, which was also a fundamental human right;
