Football and Business Community Helps Paralyzed Goalkeeper
True Jamaican spirit was on display at Addison Park Brown's Town recently, as members of the football fraternity pooled efforts for a worthy cause - helping Brown's Town resident Rohan Pinnock who up until last year played for Standfast United football club but is now unable to walk properly after suffering paralysis as a result of a bad fall during a match last year. http://www.golocaljamaica.com/
Peace & Love In Schools (PALS) ‘Peace… Be Part Of It’.

Pieces of the Past:  Katherine Dunham – Matriarch of Modern Dance
NOW 93 years old, Katherine Dunham's life is the stuff of legend. Widely recognized as the matriarch of black American dance, in the 1930s Dunham skillfully blended the discipline of cultural anthropology with the medium of dance to create an entirely new form of movement.

Store Profile: Ounce of Prevention

Take your business online with Go-Jamaica

Ounce of PreventionWell you made all those resolutions at the start of the year.   Spring is here and before you know it Summer will be upon us.  So lets get up to date with what we should be doing to encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Vendryes, a Jamaican doctor, has over the past decade transformed his medical practice into a blend of conventional and alternative modalities.

His book is a collection of newspaper articles from the author's weekly health column in the Daily Gleaner entitled "An Ounce of Prevention". Each chapter represents an article that covers a specific health issue, illness or alternative therapy. The author's aim is to present the reader with a simple, practical message on a wide range of health concerns.
