Bahamian actress, artist, fashion designer, and entrepreneur Leah Eneas has impressed many in the recent months with her line of customized clothing and accessories made from crochet.
Leah learnt how to crochet at a young age and credits her grandmother for teaching her the craft. According to Leah her crochet business happened rather unexpectedly as she would make clothing to wear for herself and persons would show interest or inquire on how they could get something made for themselves.
As interest in her crochet products/designs grew, Leah's range also grew and it expanded into the Late Bloomer brand. In July 2012, she held her first fashion show showcasing her designs and talent. Leah's designs have been described as being not only functional but sexy, eye catching and a great fit for island wear.
As of late Leah has been featured in various media publications with focus on her crochet line and she has been garnering alot of attention. Leah is definately doing crochet her way!

The Island President
The Island President is the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced – the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. After bringing democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable. A classic David and Goliath tale, The Island President captures Nasheed’s first year in office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009 where the film provides a rare and unprecedented glimpse of the political horse-trading that goes on between world leaders at such a top-level global assembly.
End of the Line
The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the
impact of overfishing on our oceans, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. In the film we see first-hand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food.
It examines the imminent extinction of Bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing
western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge
overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world
with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation.
Filmed over two years, The End of the Line follows the investigative reporter
Charles Clover as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who
exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.
Comprehension Our Way: A Comprehensive English Course For Junior High School Students by Iris Depass
Author: Iris Charlton-DePass
In July 2012 this first time author finally released her long awaited book to the public called Comprehension Our Way: A Comprehensive English Course For Junior High Students. It is a book which is intended for junior high school students who are preparing for the Bahamas Junior Certificate (BJC)examination in English Language.
When asked how the book came about, the writing process and how the response has been thus far she responded by saying: -
"As a teacher of English Language I have seen the need to have material to which students in The Bahamas could relate. That was the primary reason for the book. It took years to compile the passages that are a part of 'Comprehension Our Way', some of which are based on childhood memories, and others are purely fictional. The poems are based on issues that we face here in The Bahamas. The response has been wonderful, and persons who have copies share the desire to have 'Comprehension Our Way' in schools throughout The Bahamas."
Currently living in Abraham's Bay, Mayaguana this dedicated teacher and authoress spends her spare moments partaking in community held events and offering her time to community service.

For those of you in the 242 that have not done so already, you need to check out and support EMANJI CIRCUS ARTS, the "First Bahamian Circus". I have had the distinct pleasure of going to two of their shows "Green" and "Odruda 2". Their performances were both absolutely thrilling and exciting to watch. The performances are based on the European style of acts of human ability, dexterity and bravery and showcases their talents in: Juggling, Still Object and Live Person Balancing, Silk Cloth, Lyra, Single, Double and Triple Trapeze, Dancing Trapeze, Fire Apparatuses - Fans, Staff, Pois etc., Spanish Web, Contortion, Chinese Pole, Tumbling and Acrobatics, Tap Dancing, Tight Rope Walking, Rola Bola and so much more! They provide repertoire shows, variety shows, and even single performances that can be showcased indoor or outdoors.
Emanji Circus Arts started in 2002 as a one-man act featuring Jarvis Grant, an experienced circus performer who has an extensive background in performing and training. Emanji Circus Arts is currently comprised of a cast of
twenty-five young Bahamian artists between the ages of 14 and 37, all born,
raised and trained in The Bahamas.
