            [post_content] => It is believed that the Islamic State (IS), an Islamic rebel group claiming religious, political and military authority over all Muslims worldwide, has hacked the official website of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines government (www.gov.vc), as a message appeared on the site on Sunday. When visited the website on since the unauthorized access, visitors were greeted by a message saying "Hacked By Moroccanwolf - Islamic State" and a photo of a man firing a high calibre machine gun from the back of a pick-up truck.

Another message that appeared on the website said that the US and NATO Forces are involved in "Organised butchery of Human race since it's (sic) inception.

"They overthrow governments of sovereign nations and they undermine, threaten, refuse to recognise and seek to destroy democratically elected governments like there are in Syria , Iraq , Gaza, Palestine," the message noted.

"They support dictators as long as they are fulfilling US, EU & NATO interest in the region like they did in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. You speak of Freedom of speech and freedom of expression but you remain silent in the face of a people desire to seek freedom to exist -- unless those people are Israeli Zionists!

"Hypocrisy of this magnitude will bring the chickens home to roost and not peace and security as is your mantra!" the message continued.

On the 29th of June, last year, the Islamic State (IS) proclaimed itself to be a Worldwide Caliphate, the concept of a single theocratic one-world government. As the United Nations, various government, and mainstream Muslim groups all refusing to acknowledge it, the new name and the idea of a caliphate has been widely criticized and condemned.

As caliphate, Islamic State (IS) claims religious, political and military authority over all Muslims worldwide and that "the legality of all emirates, groups, states, and organisations, becomes null by the expansion of the [caliphate's] authority and arrival of its troops to their areas".

            [post_content] => Following the dismissal of Dr. Bheri Ramsaran who had been under fire after insulting and threatening a female rights activist in an altercation caught on tape, Dr. Jennifer Westford is the new Minister of Health. In a brief statement, President Donald Ramotar said that Dr. Ramasaran had been relieved of his ministerial duties.

"The president reiterates his outrage at the verbal outbursts and insults uttered by the minister recently," Ramotar said, just over a week after Dr Ramsaran was in an April 20 confrontation with Sherlina Nageer. The incident occurred outside a court where he had joined supporters of former president Bharrat Jagdeo who is currently facing a criminal charge.

"We have women and children dying under your watch. What are you doing here wasting time?" Nageer asked the minister in their altercation.In a response he insulted and used expletives of the woman.

"Shut your mouth and get out my face . . . You idiot . . .," Dr. Ramsaran was caught on camera saying. He went on to use expletives as he told Nageer to "get out of my face".

Dr. Ramsaran was also insulted by Nageer, and when she left the scene of the confrontation, the former health minister told reporters that he would slap her rear end "just for the fun."

"I can have some of my women strip her," he also said.

After the incident was publicized, Dr. Ramsaran however acknowledged that he had used "harsh" words in a statement that was issued. He said that Nageer had provoked him as he stood with protestors outside the Whim Magistrate Court.

"As I was about to depart, two journalists sought an interview with me on the matter at hand, to which I readily agreed. During the interview, I was rudely interrupted by a woman who kept shouting and interrupting me throughout. I shifted away on several occasions in an attempt to avoid her but she persisted in interrupting the interview. It was unfortunate that I was provoked into anger and uttered harsh words at her for which I now regret," Dr Ramsaran said. "I therefore wish to apologize for uttering those words," he ended.

Despite his apology, various women's and human right groups had called for his dismissal.

            [post_content] => The new head coach of the West Indies cricket team, Phil Simmons, says he was startled by his team's batting performance in their recent match against England that was held in Grenada on the final day of the second test match. Resuming the final day on 22 for two - a lead of 37 runs overall, West Indies was not able to keep a grip of their last eight wickets for 105 runs, to be all out for 307, 35 minutes are lunch. Allowing England to came out on top by nine wickets and lead the series one nil, West Indies surrendered a strong position.

"You hear people talk about how bad this is, or how bad that is. But when youre in the camp, its not all as bad as people say," Simmons said. "But there has been nothing as startling as the way we batted on the last morning in Grenada. There is learning to be done."

In the first session on the final day, the regional side lost six wickets for 84 runs as James Anderson tore through the middle order with the new ball. As a former West Indies all-rounder, Simmons expressed his disappointment and described the batting as 'reckless', and later said that the match was lost because of 'negligence'.

"We had two hours of negligence on the last day in Grenada and we lost the game," Simmons told ESPN cricinfo. "It was a reckless period. It just needed a couple of guys to bat for another half-hour or so and we would have saved the game."

Although the loss was said to be a unfortunate surrender and there is an appeal for more consistency, the new Windies head coach still stood satisfied as he says he was encouraged by some aspects of his side during the first two test matches. In an attempt to prevent this reckless recurrence, he shares that he is advocating for a change in the mindset of the players which he said should be informed by the state of the game.

"Id like to see us play two or three sessions consistently. Weve played well in one, been bad in the next, and then come back in the one after that. But weve not played consistently well for three sessions," Simmons explained. "We just need our young players to understand that how they play must be determined by what the teams needs and what the scoreboard reads. So they have to learn here that, if the score is 40 for 4, you might have to bat for two sessions and come back the next day to get your big score. The mindset has to change."

The team's third and final test match against England starts on Friday in Barbados.
