            [post_content] => Recently on Pinterest, Jamaica was ranked as one of the most-pinned places on Earth by international travellers. The country was place at #14 out of 30 being the only Caribbean island to make the list.

Alongside other famous destinations on the planet such as the Eiffel Tower in France and Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Jamaica's spot on the chart was secured by the Cave Resort after it received over 750 million pins from visitors from all over the world.

The breath-taking destination boasts two acres of seafront and a virtual museum of fossilized marine life in the honeycomb cliff walls. On the scenic West End in Negril, the popular haven stands supported by the limestone cliff and nearby its seven-mile beach.

Accommodations at the Cave Resort include twelve one and two bedroom cliffside cottages and suites, along with a luxurious four-bedroom villa, all on a secluded 10-acre property.

Visitors are allowed to enjoy dining in gazebos or in a private cave, chilling at The Blackwell Rum Bar, as well as relaxing in a salt-water swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna. There is also a special attraction, the Aveda Amenity Spa, that was also recently voted as one of the "Top 5 Jamaican Spas" by Ocean Magazine because of its great ocean views and other interests.

            [post_content] => While enacting their five-day operation on Monday, the Bahamas police said the were led to end their process on an early note after they arrested two men carrying a large quantity of illegal drugs on a vessel.

The men of ages 36 and 31 were held in custody by members of the Police Marine Support Unit and officers linked to the "Operation Showtime 11" after they came across the 32 foot vessel that they were aboard.

“The officers conducted a search of the vessel and uncovered just over 1,000 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of one million US dollars,” a police representative said.

Reports state that the men will be formally charged in a court appearance that is expected to occur later this week.

Meanwhile, another outline from the police announced that 19 illegal migrants from Cuba were impounded early last Sunday.

After reaching land via their 35-foot Bayliner motor vessel South of Cat Cay in the Bimini Chain, they were spotted by the law-enforcement officers and they abandoned the vessel in an attempt to escape.

The area was immediately search by authorities who eventually came across the undocumented Cuban nationals which included four women and two children.

"The migrants were subsequently taken into custody and handed over to immigration authorities at North Bimini, who organized their flight to Nassau where they will be detained for further processing," the statement added in conclusion.

            [post_content] => The ongoing pay dispute between the West Indies Cricket team and their Union WIPA has forced the players and the rest off staff to take drastic action by cutting short their One-day International (ODI) tour in India. The move has generated a lot of anger among fans in India and in particular the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI). The West Indies team has made it clear that they will finish the fourth ODI but will not consider the fifth that was scheduled to be played in Kolkata, India on Monday.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has yet to make an announcement regarding the ongoing saga and have remain tight lipped on the situation. Should the West Indies players and staff continue with their plans, a raft of games will be missed that include a twenty20 international and a three-test series beginning October 30th in Hyderabad.

The West Indies players have reached an impasse with WIPA over what they claim is a 65% reduction in their earnings, stemming from the recent Collective Bargaining Agreement  and Memorandum of Understanding the Union signed with the WICB. Captain of the West Indies Cricket team, Dwayne Bravo, hinted at the unfolding scenario when he told commentators at the toss on Friday before the start of the fourth ODI that it was “time to make a decision.”

The BCCI said it was notified by the WICB that the tour would be cut short and that the players would return home immediately. The board also revealed that it was "shocked" and "surprised" at the decision to cancel the tour.  “The West Indies Cricket Board has informed the BCCI of its decision to cancel the rest of its ongoing tour to India because of a dispute with its players, and has advised the BCCI that its players will return home immediately,” BCCI secretary, Sanjay Patel said in a statement.

“The BCCI is shocked and extremely disappointed at the decision taken by the WICB. The WICB’s inability to resolve internal issues with its players and allowing the same to affect an ongoing bilateral series does not reflect well on any of those involved. The withdrawal gives little thought to the future of the game, the players and the long standing relations between the BCCI and the WICB.” he added. Patel described the decision to halt the tour as a "unilateral decision taken by the WICB and its players" and revealed that the BCCI would go to every length to protect their interests.
