Once again, the amazingly talented Majuro Baptist Christian Academy brings you "Take My hand" written by yours truly. Tell me what you think! I'm always appreciated of positive feedback.

  • Micronesia Speaks Up to Save Sharks | Pew

    Sharks are rapidly disappearing from the world's oceans, primarily as a result of the demand for their fins, which are valued as a soup ingredient in some cultures. Each year, up to 73 million of these animals are killed by humans. However, advocates in the Pacific would like to put a stop to this activity. Soon, an area covering more than 2 million square miles of the western Pacific Ocean—approximately two-thirds the size of the land area of the United States—is slated to become the world's largest shark sanctuary, and the first created through a regional agreement among governments. The resolution, which was negotiated last year, also authorizes the development of a regional ban on the possession, sale, and trade of shark fins in the waters of Palau, the Marshall Islands, the Northern ...

History The territory comprised the former South Pacific Mandate, a League of Nations Mandate administered by Japan and taken by the U.S. in 1944. The TTPI entered UN trusteeship on July 18, 1947 and was designated a "strategic area" in its 1947 trusteeship agreement. As such, its formal status as a UN trust territory could be terminated only by the Security Council, and not by the General Assembly as with other trust territories.[citation needed] The United States Navy controlled the TTPI from a headquarters in Guam until 1951, when the United States Department of the Interior took over control, administering the territory from a base in Saipan. A Congress of Micronesia first levied an income tax in 1971. It affected mainly foreigners working at military bases in the region. On October 21, 1986, the U.S. ended its administration of the Marshall Islands District. The termination of U.S. administration of the Chuuk, Yap, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and the Mariana Islands districts of the TTPI soon followed on November 3, 1986. The Security Council formally ended the trusteeship for the Chuuk, Yap, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Mariana Islands, and Marshall Islands districts on December 22, 1990. On May 25, 1994, the Council ended the trusteeship for the Palau District, after which the U.S. and Palau agreed to establish the latter's independence on October 1.

Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of around 68,000 people spread out over 34 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north, Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall. Recognized as part of the Spanish East Indies in 1874, the islands were sold to Germany in 1884, and became of German New Guinea in 1885. The Empire of Japan occupied the Marshall Islands in World War I, which were later joined with other former German territories in 1919 by the League of Nations to form the South Pacific Mandate. In World War II, the islands were conquered by the United States in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign. Along with other Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands were then consolidated into the United-States-governed Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Self-government was achieved in 1979, and full sovereignty in 1986, under a Compact of Free Association with the United States. Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, funding grants, and access to social services. Having few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture, with a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product coming from United States aid. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency. The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English... In the months before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Kwajalein Atoll was the administrative center of the Japanese 6th Fleet Forces Service, whose task was the defense of the Marshall Islands. In World War II, the United States, during the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign, invaded and occupied the islands in 1944, destroying or isolating the Japanese garrisons. The US government added the archipelago to the U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, along with several other island groups in the South Sea. The battle in the Marshall Islands caused irreparable damage, especially on Japanese bases. During the American bombing, the islands' population suffered from lack of food and various injuries. U.S. attacks started in mid-1943, and caused half the Japanese garrison of 5,100 people in the atoll Mili to die from hunger by August 1945. In just one month in 1944, Americans captured Kwajalein Atoll, Majuro and Enewetak, and in the next two months the rest of the Marshall Islands except Wotje, Mili, Maloelap and Jaluit... From 1946 to 1958, as the site of the Pacific Proving Grounds, the U.S. tested 67 nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands, including the largest nuclear test the U.S. ever conducted, Castle Bravo. In 1956, the Atomic Energy Commission regarded the Marshall Islands as "by far the most contaminated place in the world".

The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English. Almost the entire population of the islands practises some religion, with three-quarters of the country either following the United Church of Christ -- Congregational in the Marshall Islands (UCCCMI) or the Assemblies of God. Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar was the first European to see the islands in 1526, commanding the ship Santa Maria de la Victoria, the only surviving vessel of the Loaísa Expedition. On August 21, he sighted an island at 14°N that they named "San Bartolome" (probably Taongi).[4] On September 21, 1529, Álvaro de Saavedra Cerón commanded the Spanish ship Florida, on his second attempt to recross the Pacific from the Maluku Islands. He stood off a group of islands from which several natives came off and hurled stones at his ship. These islands, named by him "Los Pintados," may have been Ujelang. On October 1, he found another group of islands where he went ashore for eight days, exchanged gifts with natives and took on water. These islands, "Los Jardines," could be Eniwetok or Bikini Atoll. The Spanish ship San Pedro and two other vessels in an expedition commanded by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi on January 9, 1530, discovered an island at 10°N where they went ashore and traded with natives and named it "Los Barbudos" (possibly Mejit). On January 10, they sighted another island that they named "Placeres" (perhaps Ailuk), ten leagues away, they sighted another island that they called "Pajares" (perhaps Jemo). On January 12, they sighted another island at 10°N which they called "Corrales" (possibly Wotho). On January 15, another low island was sighted at 10°N (perhaps Ujelang) where they made a good description of the people on "Barbudos."[7][8] After that, ships like San Jeronimo, Los Reyes, Todos los Santos also visited the islands in different years.

For the past couple of years, Marshall Islands companies have led the way in new shipping company IPOs (initial public offerings) on both the NYSE and NASDAQ in New York. With a dozen Marshall Islands shipping companies now publicly trading and more to come, it is clear that professionals, such as lawyers, bankers and underwriters, trust the reputation of the Marshall Islands Corporate Registry and the corporate law of the Marshall Islands. This corporate law, known as the Republic of the Marshall Islands Business Corporations Act, is modeled on the corporate law of the U.S. state of Delaware, which is widely regarded as the most progressive and successful onshore corporate jurisdiction in the world. Lawyers in particular appreciate the flexibility and dependability of the Marshall Islands corporate program. According to Mr. Antonios Backos, who is a partner at the successful New York law firm of Healy & Baillie, LLP, the Marshall Islands has become the jurisdiction of choice for offshore public companies because "As corporate governance issues increase in importance for public and private companies alike, having a set of rules in an offshore jurisdiction that is more akin to current Delaware law facilitates boards and their advisors in developing best corporate practices." The Marshall Islands presents the best of all worlds for those interested in an offshore jurisdiction that can meet all of their needs. Since the Marshall Islands has a statutory provision in its law that exempts all offshore Marshall Islands companies from taxation in the Marshall Islands, Marshall Islands offshore companies enable investors and other professionals to save a tremendous amount of money while they can be assured that the legal system of the Marshall Islands will continue to be recognized and respected worldwide.

In the second verse, we hear of God's words of love towards us. Just as Moses' mother gave her son words of love, so God gives us words of love as we ourselves live in a foreign land. Verse One: All my life I’ve never heard such words of love Her voice so tender like an angel from above How her tears reveal such love a mother shows If only he could see how much she loves him so Listen to these words of love A mother speaking to her son A foreign land he will belong But through these words he will be strong Chorus: “Take my hand, don’t you cry, I’ll see you through There is light on the other side Do not fear, God is near, He’ll guide you through Trust in Him and these words abide.” Verse Two: All my life I’ve never heard such words of love Your words so tender like an angel from above How Your words reveal such love a Father shows Now I can clearly see how much you love me so Listen to these words of love A Father speaking to His own A foreign land I do belong But through these words I am made strong Chorus: “Take my hand, don’t you cry, I’ll see you through There is light on the other side Do not fear, I am near, I’ll guide you through Trust in Me, and My words abide

Sharks are rapidly disappearing from the world's oceans, primarily as a result of the demand for their fins, which are valued as a soup ingredient in some cultures. Each year, up to 73 million of these animals are killed by humans. However, advocates in the Pacific would like to put a stop to this activity. Soon, an area covering more than 2 million square miles of the western Pacific Ocean—approximately two-thirds the size of the land area of the United States—is slated to become the world's largest shark sanctuary, and the first created through a regional agreement among governments. The resolution, which was negotiated last year, also authorizes the development of a regional ban on the possession, sale, and trade of shark fins in the waters of Palau, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the Federated States of Micronesia, which includes Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Kosrae. This short video, produced by the Pew Environment Group, demonstrates the need for countries to implement the agreement and recounts the successful efforts of Guam, where thousands of students and other citizens spoke out about the importance of safeguarding these important keystone species.

UN climate change poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner lives in the Marshall Islands and became known worldwide following her inspirational performance at the UN climate summit in 2014. As part of Good Energy's appearance at Hay Festival 2016, we asked Kathy to help us by writing a new poem to show how the arts can tackle climate change. 'The Butterfly Thief' was inspired by our supporters and visitors to the Hay Festival who were asked to share what was most precious in their world which they felt was at risk from climate change. www.goodenergy.co.uk/blog/2017/04/19/using-your-words-to-fight-climate-change/ The Butterfly Thief In middle school I was a butterfly thief. I stole caterpillars, rolled into cocoons from the bushes outside my classroom. I nestled them into leaves on top of my desk across from my bunkbed and a few weeks later my cousin and I woke to a morning light of trembling butterflies. I read recently that 40% of pollinator species, this includes butterflies and bees, are facing extinction. One of the leading causes? Climate change. Warmer winters force plants to shift their schedules. So that when a bee comes out of hibernation the flower it normally feeds on has already bloomed and died. As a result populations of the monarch butterfly and the rusty patch bumblebee has declined by as much as 80%. I came across a cartoon of a bumble bee. Cute, tubby and smiling with a little cartoon bubble above its head that read: “If we die, we're taking you with us.” Might as well put a Marshallese face over that bumble bee, Because if our islands, the Marshall Islands, drowns out due to the rising sea level who do you think will be next? I’m taking you with me. Another contributing factor to the decline of bees and butterflies are pesticides. For bees the pesticides cloud their vision so that they lose their way and die before they reach their home. How many of us will die before we get to go home? Will take a boat to islands that were once whole now reduced to sand and stone? Some stories say our ancestors came from volcano stone, a basalt rock goddess tooted in reef. Today I keep a basalt rock on my bookshelf. What tokens of our land shall we, will we store in ourselves inside our honeycomb of chest bones the buzzing of a shore long gone. I'm taking you with me. In this past week my newsfeed erupted with the announcement of Rex Tillerson, ExxonMobil’s CEO names Secretary of State By US President Donald Trump. ExxonMobil knew of climate change since 1981 But continued to fund climate deniers for the next 27 years. So whose colony is it collapsing today? Is it really just the bees? Or is also the human race funding our own world to be washed into the sea? Trust – I’m taking you with me. On a visit to Kalalan Island a man takes my hand and he swears he was waiting for me. He points to another island just a few feet called Ellekan. He says 10 years ago it was lush. Full of coconut and pandanus trees. Now reduced to sand and stone. He says what's dead is dead. You can't save this one but you gotta save the others. The Prime Minister of Tuvalu was quoted as saying if we save Tuvalu, we save the world. But what if we don’t save Tuvalu? What if bees and butterflies become extinct? What if our islands don’t survive? Just who do you think will be next? I'm taking you with me. I'm taking you with me. I'm taking you with me.

President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday greeted the government and people of Marshall Islands -- Marshall Islands is a Pacific Ocean country of 68,000 people -- on the eve of its Constitution Day. In a message to Christopher Jorebon Loeak, president of the Marshall Islands, Mukherjee extended "warm greetings and felicitations" to him and the government and people of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. "As the world's largest democracy, India recognizes the spirit of democracy, freedom and dignity of individuals enshrined in your constitution. We also share your county's aspirations for peace and prosperity and relations based on mutual understanding," he said. Spread over 24 low-lying coral atolls, Marshall Islands is an island nation near the equator in the Pacific Ocean. It takes its name from British explorer John Marshall and has close ties with the US. Mukherjee said India recently welcomed the first ambassador of the Marshall Islands. "We look forward to working with you and your government to further strengthen our bilateral relations based on mutual trust and friendship," he added.
