THE BISON PROJECT


                  THE BISON PROJECT

December 30, 2023 marked the 52nd anniversary of Howard University’s national soccer championship - the first NCAA title, in any sport, at a historically black college. The story of that epic season - and that team - was told in the 3-part podcast called “The Bison Project.” Written and reported by journalist and Howard alum Mark W. Wright, the series is a deep-dive into this team’s undefeated season, and delves into the reasons why Howard was stripped of its title by the NCAA. Four former players — Alvin Henderson, Ian Bain, Mori Diane and Rick Yallery-Arthur — from that 1971 team, and a former Howard student (Lena Williams) came together to discuss the podcast, and share recollections from that history-making season.

DIASPORA MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN MENTAL HEALTH IN TRINIDAD & TOBAGO

Healthy Kinder International, in partnership with Future Focus Empowerment, will provide both the Youth Mental Health First Aid and ADULT Mental Health First Aid Certification Training Programs in Trinidad & Tobago this October 2023 during Mental Health Awareness Month.  

The Youth Mental Health First Aid Certification Program allows participants to learn about the warning signs of mental health issues experienced by youth and equip adults with the tools and resources to better support youth and their families.  The Adult Mental Health First Aid Certification Program adults support other adults who struggle with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. 

The Three Year Certification courses are designed to reduce stigma and discrimination against those who are impacted by mental health issues, and promote overall mental well-being for community members whether in schools, workplace or community at large. 

This Fall, Healthy Kinder International has partnered with several establishments in Trinidad & Tobago and in the USA, to sponsor a total of 60 certifications in Mental Health First Aid. 

The kind and generous donors include Healthy Kinder International (HK), Future Focus Empowerment (FFE), St. Francois Girls College Alumnae Association (SFGCAA), Trinidad and Tobago Association of Washington DC (TTADC), Trinidad and Tobago Diaspora Associations Network (TTDAN), Trinity College Alumni Association (TCAA NA), The Art of Wellness (Malawi), University of The West Indies (UWI) and several individuals.  The courses will be facilitated by Dr. Astril Webb, MD.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO REPURPOSES WALLERFIELDt

Reprinted courtesy FMI: www.tamana.com

A place that once played an important role in winning the second World War will now play a critical role in winning new investments through the country of Trinidad & Tobago's first Science and Technology Research Park - Tamana InTech Park. The island Republic in the Caribbean has repurposed the Waller Field Air Force Base, a former United States World War II Air Force base located in northeastern Trinidad, to satisfy the country's goal of transforming its booming energy-based economy to a knowledge-based one.

Waller Field AFB was activated in September of 1941 to establish a flying facility within the United States Army Fort Read post, to protect the oilfields and refineries, and to stand guard over the merchant ships that gathered in the Gulf of Paria. The air force base was named after United States Army Air Force Major Alfred J. Waller, a distinguished World War I combat pilot.

The air force base experienced many shifts in its use after World War II and closed May of 1949 due to budget cuts. Now, Five decades later, the former Air Force base has been transformed into Tamana InTech Park.

Tamana InTech Park claims it stands out for its cutting-edge technology tailor-made for cross-linked business opportunities and resource clustering. Situated among moriche palms on a natural reserve, supported by the on-site campus of University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT), and outfitted with state-of-the-art telecom and security systems, the Park is both technologically advanced and relevant to its natural environment. The Park's Tier III data centre is one of only a few in the region and offers a complete suite of data centre services for Tamana's tenants.

"Tamana InTech Park is an example of the country's ICT readiness," said Angela Hordatt, Vice President of Business Development at Evolving Technologies and Enterprise Development Company Ltd. [eTecK], one of the implementing agencies under the Ministry of Trade & Industry in charge of developing Tamana InTech Park. "The park is well positioned to become a home for global companies and site selectors, with plenty of room to meet a company's existing and future needs."
