New President Focused on Continuing


I by Reva Devi
Editor in Chief
With a New Year comes a New
COB President. Dr. Betsy Vogel
Boze became College President
effective January 1, and has a
challenging and exciting road
ahead. "It is an honor and a privi-
lege to have been selected to lead
The College of The Bahamas,"
said Dr. Vogel Boze. "This is a
fine institution with a bright
future and I am excited at the
opportunities that lie ahead."
Dr. Vogel Boze expressed that
one of the most important goals
she has, as COB President is to
complete the transition from col-
lege to university. Though she
believes COB already possesses
significant qualities that a univer-
sity should have, The College has

three crucial areas, which need to
be resolved.
Firstly, Dr. Vogel Boze
expressed the need to determine
peer and aspirant institutions to
benchmark against. Peer institu-
tions would be those with which
COB shares certain characteris-
tics, which can range from size to
type of campus. Aspirant
Institutions are those COB might
aim to emulate. Determining
these institutions and comparing
ourselves with them will clarify
which direction development
needs to go in.
The College also needs to begin
a process of regular academic pro-
gram reviews to improve academ-
ic quality. These reviews will look

Top World News Stories of 2010

I by Ishaan Thatoor

From the depths of human suffering to the triumph of a nation

1. Haiti Earthquake
The Jan. 12 earthquake that rocked the
Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince may not
have been the highest-magnitude tremor in
recent memory, but it certainly seemed the
most cataclysmic. Within hours, more
than a million people became homeless.
Buildings across much of the city and its
suburbs were reduced to rubble. Some
230,000 people died, and hundreds of thou-
sands of others were injured. The interna-
tional response was swift, with dozens of
countries sending aid, rescue teams and
military personnel to stabilize the situa-
tion. But the damage has been devastating
and profound in what is one of the poorest
countries in the western hemisphere. Tens
of thousands remain in ramshackle tent
cities that from the beginning have been
short on or totally bereft of adequate provi-
sions. Reports of rape are legion, and an
epidemic of cholera has set in, killing
more than 300 and leading to further calls
for international relief. The hobbled
Haitian government is unable to cope on
its own - at times, outgoing President
Ren6 Pr6val has seemed a bemused
bystander, and it's unlikely that the results
of upcoming elections can do much to
change the bleak facts on the ground

2. WikiLeaks
WikiLeaks, an organization that seeks out
and publishes sensitive or secret govern-
ment data, dropped two considerable bomb-
shells with the July release of 77,000 U.S.
military files chronicling the war effort in
Afghanistan and a larger tranche of
400,000 war logs from Iraq in October -
both documenting previously unreported
civilian casualties and incidents of abuse.

Then WikiLeaks went veritably nuclear,
leaking more than 200,000 U.S. diplomat-
ic cables to a handful of media outlets in
November. Though few of the revelations
found within the cables were much of a
surprise - really, there's corruption in
Russia? - the leak has shaken technocrats
in the worlds major capitals and raised pro-
found questions about the nature of secrecy
in the digital 21st century. In the limelight
is Julian Assange, WikiLeaks' silver-
haired, reedy-voiced chief. The Australian
former journalist was arrested in London
Dec. 7 for alleged sexual assaults in
Sweden - charges his lawyers say are
trumped up to ruin his reputation. Assange
may yet have the last laugh: on an almost
daily basis, dozens of new leaked cables are
being published, forcing some of the
world's greatest power brokers into awk-
ward apologies and crisis meetings over
and over again.

3. Chilean Miners
On Aug. 5, 33 miners in the San Jos6 cop-
per mine in the Atacama desert found them-
selves trapped in a collapsed shaft 2,300 ft.
(700 m) under the earth. The 69-day subter-
ranean vigil that followed was the year's
global suspense drama, feel-good story and
soap opera all rolled into one. Overnight
the miners became national heroes, grainy
images of them huddled underground
appearing on front pages worldwide. Soon
a rapt international audience learned of
boreholes, rescue capsules and the miners'
private lives (mistresses included). The
miners' cinematic release, broadcast live,
provided mesmerizing, better-than-fiction
viewing as each of the brave men emerged
from the bowels of the earth to the
embraces of teary-eyed family members
and smiling Chilean President Sebastian
Pifiera. Somewhat lost in the miracle of
their survival were the stories of the hun-
dreds of miners each year who aren't so
lucky - just months after the rescue, a
similar collapse killed 29 miners in New

4. Pakistan Floods
Beset by widespread extremist militancy,
saddled with a weak civilian government
and in the midst of a considerable fiscal cri-
sis, Pakistan already had more than its fair

share of trouble. Then monsoon rains in
July triggered almost unprecedented flood-
ing that inundated the Indus River basin -
at one point, almost a fifth of the country
was underwater. About 20 million
Pakistanis were displaced by the rising
waters; some 2,000 people died, as did an
estimated 10 million heads of livestock.
The damage to the economy - up to $43
billion, by some accounts - has been a
withering blow to the Pakistani state,
which struggled to aid many of the strand-
ed and homeless. Reports suggest that
charities linked to fundamentalists often
filled the void The international communi-
ty was also slow in responding to the
unfolding calamity: while more than $742
million in aid was committed to Haiti
within days of its earthquake, a paltry $45
million had been set aside for Pakistan a
month after its rains began.

5. North Korea's Year of Bad
It began in March when the Cheonan, a
South Korean corvette, sank in waters dis-
puted by the two Koreas, killing 46
sailors. An investigation conducted by the
South Korean military ultimately conclud-
ed that the vessel had been brought down
by a North Korean torpedo. That led to a
summer of ratcheted-up tensions, with the
U.S. and South Korea conducting naval
exercises in the shadow of the Hermit
Kingdom, in turn irking China, the
North's sole benefactor. While Washington
and Beijing hurled diplomatic barbs at each
other, Pyongyang threw itself a party on
Sept. 28 to mark the 65th anniversary of
its ruling Communist Party, opening its
doors for a split second to the foreign press
while anointing the corpulent Kim Jong
Un as successor to his ailing father Kim
Jong II. Then the rogue state went about
doing what it does best and shelled a South
Korean island on Nov. 23. Four South
Koreans died, and the peninsula was swal-
lowed up by geopolitical animosities all
over again.

6. South Africa's World Cup
For months in advance of this summer's
soccer World Cup in South Africa, the
international news media questioned the
African nation's ability to viably host the

This was the first World Cup staged on the
African continent, and there were myriad
concerns: Would new stadiums be complet-
ed in time? Would the country's infrastruc-
ture be adequate for the tens of thousands of
fans descending on South Africa? Would
security measures be sufficient in a nation
with a notorious reputation for violent
crime? The tournament's start was far from
propitious - Nelson Mandela, the pio-
neering antiapartheid leader, former
President and ardent soccer fan, withdrew
from the opening ceremony after his great-
granddaughter died in a car crash. But
despite a few initial setbacks, the negativi-
ty that preceded the event dissipated after it
got under way. For four weeks in the sum-
mer, South Africa was the scene of one of
the most successful World Cups in recent
memory, animated by jubilant crowds,
some sparkling performances - particular-
ly from an enterprising Ghanaian side and
the eventual champions, Spain - and a
rancorous global debate over the noisy
vuvuzela. By the time of the final,
Mandela was beaming from the sidelines
and the cynics had shut up shop - after
all, who would listen to them when a psy-
chic octopus was calling all the shots?

"Am I my brother's keeper?" This question
asked of God by Cain, is echoed at some
point in time in history by every
Christian- especially those who have
become wearied in well doing. Those who
have found themselves giving more and
more of themselves; those who have given
until it hurts; and specifically those whose
"bowels of compassion" are constantly
being tugged on by the plight of the poor,
the oppressed, the down trodden, the voice-
less or the marginalized
Am I my brother's keeper?
There is at least one other question that is
posed within the annals of sacred scripture
that mirrors the intensity and depth of
Cain's question - "Who is my neighbour?"
The reality of life is that this Christian
journey requires much of those who elect to
follow Christ. One such high requirement
is the promotion of social justice, not just
through words but also in deed. Social jus-
tice, which simply means that you give a
voice to the members of society who are
discriminated against because of racial,

ethnic, gender or socio-economic stand-
ings. It is in fact non-negotiable in this
Christian journey; the gospels are filled
with Christ centred events in which the
poor are cast as protagonists and Jesus'
main focus was to alleviate their pain or
discomfort. To give further credence to the
importance of the Christian's responsibili-
ty to ensure social justice throughout the
prophetic literature the writer's have
emphatically implied that there is an
intrinsic link between a nation's spiritual-
ity and the way they treat the poor.
Am I my brother's keeper? Who is my
neighbour? While we are often tempted to
ask these questions, we are told what is
required of us as Christians, and it is more
than merely learning church speak, spiritu-
al physical conundrums, swinging on
chandeliers, and casting disdaining looks
at unbelievers or struggling saints; but as
Micah 6:8 says: "He has showed you, 0
man, what is good. And what does the Lord
require of you? To act justly and to love
mercy andto walk humbly with your God"

'The Green Hornet' is an action/crime
starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron
Diaz and Christoph Waltz that, unlike
other superhero films (like Superman
Returns...yes that is a movie), actually
keeps an audience interested.

In this film, Britt Reid, a goofy,
oblivious, spoilt, emotionally abused
young man unearths the repressed hero
within himself after his father's untimely
death. He teams up with Kato, his
father's young Japanese mechanic/coffee
maker, who just happens to be a mechan-
ical genius and super butt-kicking
machine. Together, the two plan to rid the
streets of crime under the guise of crimi-
nals themselves. Only problem is they
have no idea what they're doing.
Thankfully they have Lenore, unknow-
ingly hired to provide insight on how a
criminal would take over the city. Soon
the pair's exploits are noticed by
Chudnofsky , the criminal mastermind of
the city (with a serious inferiority com-
plex) and reveal long kept secrets hidden
by the most unexpected people.

This film is overall quite funny,
involving klutzy exploits and humorous
mishaps that bring forth laughter, though

it is not classified as a comedy. The Green
Hornet in my opinion was actually much
more enjoyable than many of the movies
being released lately. For this movie I'm
just going to say watch it-no spoilers this
month-Kato is awesome!!!

ENTERTAINMENT The Spectrum - January 2011

I by Travis Cartwright-Carroll GaI
Production Manager

This is the part of the year when every-
thing seems fresh and new. When the year
holds limitless possibilities like finally
graduating from school, moving out of
your parents home, getting a career orient-
edjob and so on. So far things look prom-
ising, Justin Beiber has AIDS, the iPhone
4 is now available on Verizon and Back to
the Future finally has a game version.
Anyway, over the break, I procured an
iPad, the device of gods. It was released in
April 2010, so it's pretty cool to own a
device in its first year of existence. That's
when its novelty is at its highest.
Initially the device was thought to be
the newest portable gaming sensation
since the Gameboy. It wasn't. But it had
managed to hold its own in the market. By
means of the Apples App Store, device
owners can download games at any time
and any where (that has Wi-Fi).
Essentially if you want a game app,
you must set up an iTunes account, pur-
chase an iTunes gift card and start shopping
in the app store. The great thing about this
is, that games are at your fingertips. No
more going to the game store buying
eighty-dollar games. Nope. Just pull out
your finger and swipe. Games are usually
three to ten bucks, and these are award-win-
ning games. That's not to say there isn't a
lot of crap on the app store, but that's why
I'm here. The great thing about these
games though is that developers can release
updates every month or so and add a ton of
content adding to your game experience,
and monetary investment.
So for all you iPad users and those
thinking about it, let's look at the games
this baby has to offer and how they stand

* Infinity Blade's hero hackin n
Slashin. (

wres for your MPad

Infinity Blade
This is also available for the iPhone 4 but
I like it better on the bigger screen of the
iPad Infinity Blade is a hack n slash title
running on the Unreal Engine (which pow-
ers Gears of War) so you know it looks
gorgeous. The controls are simple; simply
flick your finger in the direction you want
to slash at your enemy. Story wise the
game is simple...but at six bucks I wasn't
expecting Chrono Cross. Essentially you
are a knight avenging the death of your
father who was killed by the god king. It
gets a bit repetitive, after a while but that's
nothing an update can't fix.

* Run Spidey Run!! (

Spider Man Total Mayhem
What can I say, it is a great game? It was
amazing on the iPhone and the HD version
on the iPad looks even better. You play
Spider-Man from the Ultimate universe,
whose mission is to thwart the evil plans
of his rouges such as Venom and Sandman
to name a few. With tight controls, solid
voice-overs and a lay any time set up, this
game is a must have.

Dungeon Hunter 2
Let's be straight, I didn't play the first one.
It just looked crappy compared to the sec-
ond. Anyway, DH2 is the sequel to
Gamelofts amazing DH. It's a hack n slash
in the vein of Diablo or World of Warcraft.
You are the banished prince of Gothicus
who must survive a war, restore glory to
the throne and defeat your evil brother. The
game looks amazing, sounds amazing and
runs amazing. If you like RPG's, get DH2
World of Goo
What an odd game. You simply build a
bridge or tower using goo blobs and con-
nect it to a suction pipe to pass a level.
Simple enough, but the mechanics behind
this game are incredible. It's very addictive

While having similar calorie levels as
Wendy's, McDonalds is a preferred
restaurant to senior students due to
lower prices, with many value meals
rating under the six-dollar mark.
Dunkin' Donuts is another restaurant in

close proximity of The College.
However, many students use this estab-
lishment to purchase various types of
coffee and baked sweets rather than an
entire meal. Again, the calorie intake of
one frappuccino can be the equivalent to
a "Baconator" sandwich from Wendy's.

New Year's Resolutions
Ah! The New Year is here, filled with new challenges,
new successes, new choices, new relationships and of
course New Year's resolutions. These are the traits (hope-
fully after careful self-examination) that we have seen in
ourselves and have vowed to change. Some make prom-
ises to change lifestyles/ eating habits to achieve their best
physical selves. Others, after receiving their last tran-
script, have chosen to change their study habits and still
others have opted to make spiritual changes in order to
ensure a "better" afterlife. Whatever the reason or the area
in which change is sought, the creation of New Year's res-
olutions is a custom that has survived throughout the
Here is what a few students have decided to change for the
New Year:

to know that I made the effort
to try and that I did my best, not thinking about what if
I did but knowing that I accomplished

Staff Writer
Last year December 1st marked the opening of 7th
Annual Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF).
the festival that primarily highlights local and inter-
national films that have limited releases, showcased
50+ films during the 5 day event. One of the 12 local-
ly produced films that were selected for viewing was
written and directed by College of the Bahamas stu-
dent Travon A. Patton.
The film Redial Sunshine, is a coming of age
drama that follows the romantic life of Ian, played by
COB alumnus Patrick Deaveaux, as he receives a
phone call from a former girlfriend Sasha played by
Tonya Laramore. This chance encounter sets off a
journey fraught with nostalgia and recollections of the
time with her.
According to the film's director the "vision for the
film... stems from numerous observations of breakups
and relationships" as the writer, Patton described the
process of developing the story as starting as a
"stream of consciousness" that eventually became
characters and motives, until the work took on a life
of it's own. His objective with the film, is to get the

Redail Sunshine
audience to give an introspective address to the ques-
tion of separation, in his words, "why did we break
up?" This is not the first film for 3rd year English
Major. Prior to the release of Redial, Patton has
directed and written two other films. May 3rd a docu-
mentary following the beginning of the National
Orchestra and BREAK a short film dealing with the
issues of conflict resolution among adolescents.
The lead actor, when asked about the experience of
participating in the short film, Deveaux remarked that
"the experience of working a a movie set is definitely
a challenging but a fulfilling one". Feeling that the
relatively young industry of film in The Bahamas has
much potential as an art form expression to tell the
Bahamian story, Deveaux observed, "film is like the
most dynamic art forms for the time.. .it combines art,
music, story telling/ written works, theater and with
all the never technology out there, I feel it will find a
way to encompass any new art forms to come as well"
Ian (Patrick Deveaux), a withdrawn, fresh out of
college, technical assistant has been down lately but

* UTEB from page 2
December 6, whereas COB administration wanted to sign on January 28. Humes said
the Union insisted on signing it sooner or else classes would not continue.
One issue that Mr. Humes pointed to that UTEB was not pleased with was the salary
package. He said the faculty rejected a $500 signing bonus that The College offered in
lieu of any other kind of salary increase. Humes claimed that the Union was more inter-
ested in signing the agreement at that point, but in 2012, they wouldbe looking toward
adequate salaries of faculty.
Despite this, Humes ended by saying that the agreement is a "good working document
to move us in the direction of university status."

7. Yemen: New Front in the War on
On Christmas Day 2009, a suspected ter-
rorist aboard a plane landing in Detroit
failed to detonate a bomb wired to his
underwear. And so the world was reminded
of Yemen, one of the Middle East's poorest
and most fractious countries and an increas-
ingly popular breeding ground for funda-
mentalist militancy - the would-be
bomber, a young Nigerian man, apparent-
ly had undergone training on Yemeni soil.
Since then, the world has become aware of
the growing strength of a Yemeni wing of
al-Qaeda that now may be more influential
and tactically capable than its counterparts
operating along the Afghan-Pakistani bor-
der. A recent series of intercepted parcel
bombs intended for addresses in the U.S.
were sent from Yemen. The country's
reigning strongman, Ali Abdullah Salih,
has governed for more than two decades
but, beyond consolidating his grip on
power, has done precious little to redress
Yemen's many economic woes. Rule of
law in certain stretches of Yemen is akin to
that in the failed state of Somalia; its
many insurgent factions and restive tribes
wouldn't be out of place in Afghanistan or
Iraq. Salih has pledged to root out the ter-
rorists in his midst. Perhaps doubting his
commitment and ability, though, the CIA
has embarked on its own covert war of
drone attacks and targeted strikes against
suspected al-Qaeda operatives in the coun-

8. European Austerity Measures
For Europe, it was a summer of discon-
tent. Reeling from the effects of the Great
Recession, a host of European Union
economies adopted austerity as the watch-
word of the day. As Greece teetered toward
bankruptcy in May, tens of thousands
marched in Athens and other cities to
protest government plans to cut back on
public-sector spending. Many felt they
were being punished for the misdeeds of
politicians, while Europeans further west
grumbled about having to bail out Greece
to the tune of almost $150 billion.
Throughout Europe, there's a sense that a
long-standing social contract forged in the
wake of World War II is under threat. In
France, cities and towns were paralyzed for
weeks by strikes as young and old raged
against a plan to increase the retirement
age by two years. The new Conservative-
led government in London announced in
October a startling $128 billion budget cut
- whittling away at everything from mil-
itary spending to affordable-housing proj-

ects - that was met with great consterna-
tion by a gloomy public.

9. Mexico's Drug War
Mexico's struggle with its powerful drug
cartels took a grisly turn in 2010. Troubled
border cities were subsumed in violence as
the country's drug kingpins warred over
turf. All the while, security forces were
either outgunned or cowed - or some-
times even in cahoots with the cartels. In
September, blood-spattered Ciudad Juirez
dismissed some 400 corrupt police offi-
cers. There have been a few small triumphs
in President Felipe Calder6n's war on the
cartels - the apprehending of a feared drug
lord called "El Barbie," as well as the cap-
ture of an unprecedented 340 tons of mari-
juana in the border town of Tijuana. But
the good news has been far outweighed by
a steady drumbeat of horrifying reports of
kidnapping, mass graves and nocturnal
executions. More than 3,000 people have
been killed this year alone.

10. Thailand's Red Shirts
For much of April and May, thousands of
antigovemment protesters occupied a cen-
tral commercial district in Bangkok, the
capital of Thailand Dubbed the Red Shirts
for the color of their political movement
(their rivals are Yellow Shirts), the
activists sought to bring down a govern-
ment they saw as elitist and undemocratic.
Their political figurehead, former Thai
Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, has
lived in exile ever since he was deposed in
a 2006 coup (in 2008 Thaksin was con-
victed of corruption and sentenced in absen-
tia). Commentators saw the protests as
emblematic of larger fissures in Thai soci-
ety - between the big city and the coun-
tryside, the rich and the poor, royalists and
populists. But on the streets of Bangkok,
Thailand's complex, dysfunctional politics
took a backseat to sheer spectacle. Red
Shirt protesters spilled hundreds of liters of
their own blood in a stomach-turning act
of agitprop. Later, after Bangkok's contin-
ued paralysis proved unacceptable to the
government, the scene turned violent, with
running street battles between government
forces and protesters, some of whom were
armed with pistols and even a few rudimen-
tary homemade rocket launchers. The bru-
tal crackdown and dispersal of the Red
Shirts led to 91 deaths and more than
1,800 injured, all captured by the cameras
of the international press, which beamed
24-hour coverage from Bangkok's battle
lines. While things have quieted down
since, emotions are still raw. In November,

thousands of Red Shirt supporters marched
in Bangkok in memory of those slain six
months earlier; future actions and protests
remain possible.

Editor's Note: Interestingly enough, the
Gulf Oil Spill did not make this list, but

it did make Number 1 on Time's Top 10
Green Stories. Here's what writer Brian
Walsh had to say about the spill:

The Oil Spill and What It Didn't Change
There's no contest. The biggest environ-
ment story of the year began on April 20
- the 40th anniversary of Earth Day -

Society on Facebook

when BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig
exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. That
began what is now known to be the
biggest oil spill in U.S. history, with at
least 185 million gallons of crude pouring
into the Gulf. The disaster grabbed the
public's imagination as no environmental
story had since, well, the Exxon Valdez oil
spill in 1989. Underwater cameras revealed
the daily failure of BP and the government
to stop the flow of oil, while photogra-
phers captured oil-drenched beaches in
Louisiana and animals slicked with crude.
Environmentalists warned about an ecolog-
ical catastrophe in the aftermath of the
spill, while hoping that it would trigger a
change in the way America consumed ener-
One thing everyone agreed - the spill
wouldn't be forgotten any time soon. And
yet... that's exactly what seems to have
happened Once BP finally sealed the
underwater leak and the video stopped, once
the visible oil vanished from the beaches,
so did public interest in the spill. The
White House's moratorium on new deep-
water drilling was lifted early, and industry
is looking for new and more dangerous
frontiers in the Arctic. There is still oil in
the Gulf, but you wouldn't know it.

* Thursday's does not have to mean dance, meetings and other
less productive activities for you. Are you an athlete? Do you
* like to watch sports? Are you competitive? Here are a few
* events and activities that may interest you.
* Have you noticed the green sign in front of the Wellness
* Centre? (If you haven't maybe you should read more). "Sign up
* today for 5 on 5 intramural basketball games".
* Beginning January 25th 2011 every Tuesday and Thursday
S2-4pm teams of five will compete on The College of the
* Bahamas basketball court for the title of Champion. So far the
* list of teams include EA Sports, GB Squad, the Niggas from da
* Tree, COBUS and the Show Stoppers.
* Flag football is also available on the College field com-
* mencing January 27th 2011. Played on many campuses world-
* wide, standard rules usually apply, however, it would be best to
* inquire before assuming you know the rules.
* If you like swimming, recreational swimming is welcomed
* at the Pool in front of the Physical plant building.
* Sign up for the Intramural Bowling League. If you didn't
* know, COB does have a bowling league, inquire at the informa-
* tion listed below.

* Intramural team, EA Sports challenges the Show
* Stoppers. Will they win this year? Find out!
