Lucas DisPasquale has been making waves around the social media circles with his cover of Jamaica's dancehall artiste, Popcaan's "Road Haffi Tek On". The song see's Lucas DisPasquale sings each and every line of the dancehall tune and quite effortless at that.

It was as if it was a totally different song together. I do like the original done by Popcaan but this cover by Lucas DisPasquale made me listen even keenly. I am yet to hear one person who does not like the makeover of the tune and it will be interesting to hear Popcaan's point of view to see something like this done to his song but it can only do well for him.

Have a listen and let me know what you think of smooth sounding, lyrically inclined makeover of Popcaan's "Road Haffi Tek On".

            [post_content] => World renowned and Jamaica Reggae Icon - Bob Marley song "One Love" has seemingly struck the right chords with members of Wilmington City Council in Delaware.

Last week the council voted to rename the Tatnall Playground - "One Love Park" in order to promote the message of peace and unity. The former Reggae icon was also former Wilmington resident.

“The lyrics of ‘One Love’ and what the song has come to mean to people in the years since Bob Marley composed it is what I hope to capture by renaming the park,” Wilmington City Council President Theo Gregory was quoted as saying by nbcphiladelphia.com.

“We all need a reminder from time to time about the importance of love in our hearts for our children and for each other,” added Gregory, whom suggested a change in name.

"I want children who play in Love Park to ask why it was given that name and accept their responsibility to make this a better city and world."

Bob Marley's mother, Cedella, relocated to Wilmington City in 1962 just a block shy of Tatnall Park. Young Bob, resided in the area for eight months while working nearby at the Chrysler plant and Dupont labs. His son, Stephen Marley was born in Wilmington in 1972.

The city first paid tribute to Bob Marley nearly twenty years ago with a celebration known as the Peoples' Festival. This year's edition of the festival that is held annually, will take place on July 26.

"One Love" by Bob Marley and The Wailers has received numerous accolades and was named song of the millennium by the British Broadcasting Commission (BBC).

            [post_content] => The Pan-American Health Organization(PAHO) has warned that about  half the Caribbean's population is at risk of contracting disease carried by insects. The PAHO said these insects include mosquitoes, ticks, flies and other vectors which carry diseases such as dengue and and most recently chikungunya.

In a "call to action" for  World Health Day 2014 experts from the Caribbean urged governments, communities and individuals to help fight against the spread of vector-borne diseases.

“Our region has achieved many successes in controlling vector-borne diseases,” said PAHO director Dr Carissa F. Etienne.

“However, this success is being threatened by the expansion of mosquitoes and other vectors into new habitats and by the emergence of insecticide and drug resistance,” she added.

The most current vector-borne disease to plague the Caribbean is chikungunya, a mosquito-borne viral disease that first appeared in Tanzania in the 1950s.

In December 2013 two cases of chikungunya were reported on the island of St. Maarten. Since, the end of March that figure has rose approximately 1500% with over 3000 cases been confirmed across 10 Caribbean countries according to the PAHO.

PAHO has called on governments, communities and individuals take action in preventing future threats from vector-borne diseases. “Everyone has a role to play,” said Etienne.

The PAHO was found in 1902 and is the world's oldest international health organization.
