Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.

Archive for March, 2010


Liquid Assets TV and the famous host of their Into The Drink series, Aaron Faulls will be in Dominica from March 31 to April 6.

Into The Drink” is a travel show like no other. Host Aaron Faulls is part fish, part rock star, taking viewers past the known and into the unknown.

Aaron takes viewers on an intoxicating celebration of exotic destinations near and far, experiencing and touring local breweries and distilleries and diving into eclectic nightlife in regions shared by some of the most mystifying creatures in the ocean. The sights, the sounds and even the smells from the sometimes unique local spirits to the poshest vineyards; from the tide’s ebb to the wrecks, whales and adrenaline-pumping marine life in the middle of the deep blue sea.

“Into the Drink” will be featuring Dominica (the nature isle) in one of their upcoming episodes later this year. We will be seen in approximate 60 million homes in the US for 52 weeks. Who says drinking and diving don’t mix?

glaucoma

Friday 12th March 2010 marks the third World Glaucoma Day, and Dominica joins the rest of the world in recognizing World Glaucoma Day.

Glaucoma is group of eye diseases characterized by abnormally high intraocular fluid pressure, damaged optic disk, hardening of the eyeball and partial to complete loss of vision.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in Dominica and one of the leading causes of blindness in the world.

You might think that you are too young to have glaucoma, you still may be at risk. Now is the time to find out. You can slow the progression of damage to your optic nerve if it has already started. Early detection and treatment are the only ways to prevent vision impairment and blindness from glaucoma.

This year the world glaucoma body recommended that the week of March 7th – March 13th be used for various activities in that respect. One of the activities planned throughout the Caribbean region, is a “Walk for Sight” – held simultaneously in each island on March 13.

The plan is that the walks taking place in each Island will be video-taped, and the recorded walks from all of the islands will be combined into a giant “Caribbean Glaucoma March Video” for broadcast around the world.

So spare a thought today for those who can’t read this, and help Prevent uncalled blindness. Get an eye checkup today!

Oscar Winning Documentary the cove

At the 2010 Academy Awards held in the United States on Sunday Night, a very important event occurred which directly involves Dominica.

The movie which captured the Best Feature Documentary called “THE COVE” – which follows an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers as they embark on a covert mission to penetrate a remote and hidden cove in Taiji, Japan, shining a light on a dark and deadly secret.

THE COVE featured Dominica as an island with special interest in protecting the world’s oceans and all species within.

The Nature Island image of Dominica was brought to the forefront due to this film whose reach has impacted as far as Japan.

Environmentalist, Atherton Martin believes this film which will be shown for the first time in Dominica on Thursday March 11th from 7 pm at the Harlem Plaza, comes at an opportune time as Dominica will again be called to vote for or against matters of preservation and conservation.

THE COVE will be shown free of charge, and everyone is invited to an open viewing of this critically acclaimed film.
