    DaFlex.net: Turbulence

    Currently, the entertainment industry has been experiencing "Turbulence" in the airwaves.

    Sheldon 'Turbulence' Campbell was born in 1981 in Kingston, Jamaica. The 24-year-old is taking the Reggae world like a storm, becoming Jamaica's leading conscious singjay in his time.

    Jamaica-Star.com: Dear Reader - To Die Young

    This week, THE STAR wrote about the situation in Jacques Road, off Mountain View Avenue, Kingston.

    In the story, it was said that residents were fleeing the community because of the violence which is probably the worse the area has ever seen. The story also states that three women, a three-month-old baby and a man have also been killed in the conflict.

    What THE STAR finds most disturbing about this current conflict is that a baby, who has committed no wrong and has no clue what is going on, was murdered by men who later killed his mother. What is also troubling is the fact that this crime may also go unpunished.

    Youthlinkjamaica.com: Exploring East Indian History

    Museums are stereotypically old, drab buildings, displaying dull artefacts and, worst of all, staffed with ageing, boring people! At the Indian exhibition at the Institute of Jamaica, this is certainly not the case. The exhibition was launched on August 15, and will continue until the end of December.

    The exhibition chronicles the 160 years of the East Indian presence in Jamaica. It was sugar that initially led the Indians to the West Indies. However, coming from one of the longest enduring civilisations, they brought with them centuries-old cultural practices and technologies, like rice cultivation, as well as new products such as curry powder, all unfamiliar to Jamaica.

    Go-localjamaica.com: Can I get married in Jamaica with a U.S. marriage certificate?
    Hi. I am a U.S. citizen. My fiancé is a Jamaican who was deported after we got engaged. We want to go on with our plans. I would love to come to Jamaica to get married. Will I be able to get married in Jamaica with a U.S. marriage certificate?

    Also, we have been trying for years to conceive. I have polycystic ovarian syndrome. Do you have any suggestions on successfully conceiving?
