Public Relations regional manager for the EC properties, Dominic Fedee talked about the objective of the second in a series of familiarization trips. “Well I think that we are often times misunderstood and I think that we need to communicate a lot better both us and the communities within which we operate. I think it means a whole lot to us that people understand what we’re trying to do, that they understand the heart and the soul and spirit of the company and the organization. Fedee continued: “It’s like I said earlier, it is a Caribbean company and we want to be seen as such where we are obligated and we are committed toward the development of the Caribbean’s people, its communities, its government so that overall as countries we can go forward and we can be very successful and we can be very, very formidable economies and societies in the world, so yes we want to be understood better and yes this is why we have invited people, I make no apologies for that.”The media fam trip first stopped into the Grenada La Source Sandals, moved on Monday evening to Sandals Barbados, took off on Tuesday late morning to St Lucia where two properties, Sandals Regency La Toc and Sandals Grande St Lucian were toured, with the trip wrapping up in Antigua and Barbuda which is the first Caribbean country, outside of Jamaica to have a Sandals couples’ resort – the site seen was the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa.
Share your voice Originally published Nov. 15, 2018. Update, Aug. 6: Adds new ABC information. Marvel Target ABC Tessa Thompson played a Valkyrie warrior in the 2017 movie Thor: Ragnarok. Marvel With a new live-action series focused on Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) called WandaVision headed to the new Disney Plus streaming service. And now it looks like ABC might be eyeing a Marvel female superhero series for its own network.”I have spoken to Marvel and we are in active talks about one project in particular,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke told Deadline on Monday. Burke said the character would be “something brand new, mostly” to align with ABC’s strategy of focusing on female superheroes.While we’re excited that both ABC and Disney Plus are exploring more Marvel characters for upcoming shows, we have our own list of female superheroes we think deserve their own TV series.Enlarge ImageShe-Hulk in the Marvel comics. Marvel 1. She-Hulk When lawyer Jennifer Walters gets an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin Dr. Bruce Banner, she ends up getting a milder case of his Hulk condition. Unlike Hulk, Walters can keep her emotions in check when she transforms into She-Hulk. The lawyer-by-day, vigilante-by-night angle worked well for the Marvel character Daredevil in the hit Netflix series, so why not She-Hulk? Perhaps ABC or Disney Plus can relaunch She-Hulk as a Law & Order-type drama, or maybe even an Ally McBeal comedy. In the comics, She-Hulk was also a member of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the Defenders and S.H.I.E.L.D., so the crossover potential is endless. 2. Black WidowNatalia “Natasha” Romanova/Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson in the MCU) was a Russian spy and adversary to Iron Man. She ultimately defected to the US and joined S.H.I.E.L.D. Later, she became an important member of the Avengers. Black Widow is already getting her own prequel movie where we see how she transformed from spy to superhero, but what about a series with Black Widow as a teenager? High school Natasha Romanova could be like Riverdale with a lot more fighting.Enlarge ImageThe fictional nation of Wakanda in “Black Panther” was guarded by the Dora Milaje, which took inspiration from a real group. Marvel Films 3. The Dora MilajeThe warrior women of Wakanda from Black Panther are fierce and fabulous, so why not give them their own women-centric spin-off series? Black Panther director Ryan Coogler recently commented that he’d be interested in making a spin-off movie about them. Even the real-world 19th-century Dahomey Warriors — the all-female military regiment who inspired the Dora Milaje — are getting a TV series. It would be interesting to see how the Dora Milaje came to be, before Wakanda was revealed to the outside world. 4. X-23Laura Kinney AKA X-23 was created to be the ideal killing machine thanks to Wolverine’s stolen DNA. In the Marvel comics, Laura’s mother Dr. Sarah Kinney was hired by a top-secret program to recreate the Weapon X experiment that originally turned Logan into Wolverine. Laura — named X-23 — was a clone created from these experiments and trained to kill. But she eventually escaped and eventually found Charles Xavier and joined the Avengers Academy. Imagine what she could do with her own TV series?Enlarge ImageZoe Saldana as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel 5. Gamora Then there’s the female space assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana) in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Her character’s complex history would make for an ideal ABC series, particularly if the show focused on why she’s the last of her species (Zen-Whoberis) after everyone was exterminated by the Badoon. Overcoming her tragic past to later rise up as one of the deadliest assassins in the universe is inspiring to say the least. 6. Danielle Moonstar It’s about time fans were introduced to one of the first female Native American characters in a series all her own. Danielle Moonstar is a mutant raised as part of the Cheyenne Nation. Under the guidance of X-Men’s Professor Xavier, she learned to hone her ability to create images of people’s greatest fears. This series could either focus on her life with other teen mutants at the school, or the superhero she became later as an adult.7. A-Force The Avengers might have felt like the superhero all-stars in their heyday, but the all-female A-Force is even cooler. This lineup consists of Captain Marvel, Dazzler, Medusa, She-Hulk, Singularity, Nico Minoru and a female Thor who band together to fight evil. That alone sounds like the best series ever. Enlarge ImageSpider-Gwen in action. Marvel Animation 8. Spider-Gwen Peter Parker’s flame Gwen Stacy is living her own web-slinging adventures as Spider-Gwen in an alternate universe. It would be refreshing to have a Spider-Man series with a female lead for a change. Plus considering how much fans were excited to spot her as an Easter egg in Avengers: Endgame, now might be the perfect time for a Spider-Gwen TV series. 9. Misty Knight When police officer Misty Knight lost her arm in battle, she soon got an bionic arm and became the kind of superhero New York City deserved. We’ve already seen her character (played by Simone Missick) impress fans in the Netflix series Luke Cage, but it might be time to shine the spotlight more on Misty to tell her full story. 10. Kamala Khan as Ms. MarvelMeet 16-year-old Pakistani-American Kamala Khan from Jersey City, New Jersey. She idolizes Carol Danvers and wants to follow in her superhero footsteps. In 2014, Khan was given her own Ms. Marvel comic book series by Sana Amanat, G. Willow Wilson, and Adrian Alphona. She is the fourth character to take the name Ms. Marvel. She’s also the first Muslim superhero character to headline her own comic series. This could be a great character for Disney or ABC to explore more, giving their network some much-needed diversity.11. The Valkyries Fans got a glimpse of the female demi-goddesses known as the Valkyries in the 2017 movie Thor: Ragnarok. Actor Tessa Thompson stole the movie as the hard-drinking character Scrapper 142, previously a legendary Valkyrie warrior. A prequel series all about this character could show how the Valkyries came to be, and why they were ultimately defeated.

Poor sleep may be a sign that people who are otherwise healthy may be at the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to a study. Researchers have found a link between sleep disturbances and biological markers for Alzheimer’s disease found in the spinal fluid.”Previous evidence has shown that sleep may influence the development or progression of Alzheimer’s disease in various ways,” said Barbara B Bendlin from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”For example, disrupted sleep or lack of sleep may lead to amyloid plaque buildup because the brain’s clearance system kicks into action during sleep. Our study looked not only for amyloid but for other biological markers in the spinal fluid as well,” said Bendlin.Amyloid is a protein that can fold and form into plaques.Tau is a protein that forms into tangles. These plaques and tangles are found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease.Researchers recruited 101 people with an average age of 63 who had normal thinking and memory skills but who were considered at risk of developing Alzheimer’s, either having a parent with the disease or being a carrier of a gene that increases the risk of Alzheimer’s called apolipoprotein E or APOE.

They also provided spinal fluid samples that were tested for biological markers of Alzheimer’s disease.Researchers found that people who reported worse sleep quality, more sleep problems and daytime sleepiness had more biological markers for Alzheimer’s disease in their spinal fluid than people who did not have sleep problems.Those biological markers included signs of amyloid, tau and brain cell damage and inflammation. While some of these relationships were strong when looking at everyone as a group, not everyone with sleep problems has abnormalities in their spinal fluid, researchers said.For example, there was no link between biological markers in the spinal fluid and obstructive sleep apnea.The results remained the same when researchers adjusted for other factors such as use of medications for sleep problems, amount of education, depression symptoms or body mass index. The study was published in the journal Neurology. read more
