According to ancient Egyptian mythology, Nut is the goddess of the sky & heavens.She was the daughter of Shu, god of vital breath, and his wife Tefnut, goddess of heat. She was usually depicted as a woman bent over Earth with her head in the West and feet in the East.
She was part of the cosmogony (a theory of the origin of the universe) of Heliopolis. The ancient Egyptians believed she protected the Earth deity Geb, her husband, from the night sky. She was also believed to have protected the dead until they were reborn in the Afterlife.Priest Isaac Shared some Astrophysics and scientific data to bring light to the black community as it relates to the place of Black women.

Chairman of the Dominica Association of Evangelical Churches Pastor Randy Rodney appears to be concerned by the Covid-19 Travel Advisory imposed on Dominica by the United States
Popular Chairman of the Dominica Association of Evangelical Churches Pastor Randy Rodney appears to be concerned by the Covid-19 Travel Advisory imposed on Dominica by the United States.
On August 6, 2020 the US Department of State & the Bureau of Consular affairs issued a level three Travel advisory on Dominica. The statement reads; Reconsider travel to Dominica due to health and safety measures and COVID-related conditions. Exercise increased caution in Dominica due to civil unrest. Read the Department of State’s COVID-19 page before you plan any international travel on travel.state.Gov
Travelers to Dominica may experience border closures, airport closures, travel prohibitions, stay at home orders, business closures, and other emergency conditions within Dominica due to COVID-19. Visit the Embassy's COVID-19 page for more information on COVID-19 in Dominica. The Country Summary states: Demonstrations and protests can take place with little or no notice. Local authorities have used tear gas to disrupt protests.
Rodney is unapologetically calling for a retraction of the statement of the US department of State, re its Travel advisory to US citizens interested in traveling to the Commonwealth of Dominica.

Environmentalist Atherton Martin is calling the DLP Government announcement about building a Geothermal Plant, a Cliché, a pie in the sky project, and an annual recurring promise
Hotelier and Former Minister of Agriculture Atherton Martin says he is baffled by the blatant neglect and lack of the progress shown by officials of the Roosevelt Skerrit Administration, in the advancing renewable energy sector. Speaking on Q95 recently, Martin exposed the intentions of the Roosevelt Skerrit Administration, who have apparently wasted over 10 years of investment in the energy sector, after a comprehensive energy development and export plan was developed in 2012 to transition Dominica into a Green economy.
Martin calls for better stewardship of the country’s natural resources as these resources provide an economic service for the country. He added that the money spent so far by the Skerrit-led DLP Administration in the Geothermal Project, could have been redirected into Solar, Wind and Hydro energy projects, which would have greatly benefited the nation economically by now.
The Former Agriculture Minister is calling the DLP-led government’s announcement about building a Geothermal Plant, ‘a Cliché and a pie in the sky project!’ As the administration has promised Dominicans this high profile project, for years.

Youth Activist Sky George condemns the unemployment & poverty being experienced by Dominica’s proud Indigenous Kalinago people
Youth Activist Sky George speaks to the statistics surrounding the unemployment and poverty rate of the Kalinago people in Dominica. The Kalinagos are the indigenous people of Dominica, yet have to date not received enough rights to their own lands, and are currently deprived of major economic earnings in their community.
According to the Sun Newspaper on august 6, 2016, the Roosevelt Skerrit Administration’s Medium-term Growth and Social Protection Strategy, published in 2006, categorically stated that the Kalinago Territory has the highest incidence of poverty in Dominica where over half of the households are poor and 35% are indigent. When the report was published a few years ago, the researchers found that housing conditions among the indigenous people were substantially worse, than for other poor households in Dominica.
Another report, published by the Christian Children's Fund three years earlier, paints an even grimmer picture. "There has been a rapid deterioration in the standard of living among all Kalinago people," the CCF report categorically states. "In Dominica, in particular, the Kalinago Territory is one of the poorest and most neglected areas, with no running water in about 75 percent of the area, high unemployment rate, poor educational facilities and poor-quality nutrition." The CCF report added that about 70 percent of the houses are in dilapidated conditions and many are "infested with rodents, bugs, cockroaches and other insects creating unhygienic conditions which contribute to serious asthma attacks and other related respiratory and health illnesses".
