I’m fortunate to have met Rowan Byrne, Director of the Rosalie Sea initiative Turtle-RoSTI. An Irish Marine & Freshwater biologist who has worked with endangered sea turtles around the world. He has appeared in a large number of TV programs and has written articles on worldwide issues.

In 2005 Rowan worked with BBC Natural History Unit on a new series called “Secrets of The Caribbean�? out winter 2006 and Disney while they were shooting Pirates of Caribbean two and three. Most notable, was his work with National Geographic Channel Asia, which was aired during September 2002. This revolutionary project focused on work with globally endangered sea turtles and dugongs in the Philippines.

Since 2003 Rowan has regularly appeared on many programs on television & Radio, including, ‘Mooney Goes Wild, Marian Finucane Show, News2days on the Den, and Open House. In 2003 he had a weekly Internet diary of events called ‘Rowan’s Turtle Diaries’, on RTE Radio. Media publications include many wildlife articles in Wild Ireland Magazine, Eco Magazines and SUBSEA

His website Marine Creatures dot com keeps you up-to-date with both Rowan’s current and pending published works, as well as his many and varied media activities. It also aims to give you a preview of his extensive stock library of photographs and video galleries of many marine creatures from around the world.

Senior Counsel Tony Astaphan has defended a decision to appeal a judgment in a matter, which involves former Aid Bank employee, Mavis Williams.

The matter has been taken to the East Caribbean Supreme Court of Appeal, after a judge ruled that she should receive 1.2 million dollars for wrongful dismissal in 2000.Mr. Astaphan, says, the former bank employee is entitled to far less than what was awarded by the court.

We wanted to appeal the judgment on liability because we thought is was manifested wrong, unfortunately the bank waited to long to decide to appeal and we paid the price for that, in addition to that we just feel that is our personal and professional view at this time that the judgment was manifested wrong.

Meantime the East Caribbean Supreme Court of Appeal last week asked the Aid bank to pay miss Williams 50,000 dollars. The court matter challenging the 1.2 million dollars will be heard later this year.

The launching of a National schools Curriculum for Dominica has been described as a major achievement for the country. The schools curriculum is expected to guide the processes of education at both the primary and secondary level.

At the ceremony to officially launch the programme, Education, minister Vince Henderson(minedu@cwdom.dm) said the process has just begun, he also said the national curriculum sets out the framework for development for the country. Meantime Chief Education officer Steve Hyacinth believes the National schools curriculum will change the education landscape in Dominica.<.p>

My only Question is: What happens to all the children who entered secondary school and can’t read, is there a new curriculum for these children?- Mr Steve Hyacinth
