Submitted by Keen i Media Ltd   

On Saturday, April 9, top welterweights Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley will go head-to-head for the third time. REV will carry the fight live from the MGM Grand at 9:00 p.m. on REV pay-per-view channel 874. (Photo courtesy of HBO)NASSAU, Bahamas -- The much-anticipated face off between top welterweights Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley goes down this Saturday and REV is bringing the action to boxing fans live from Las Vegas' MGM Grand via pay-per-view channel 874 on Saturday, April 9th, 2016.

Coming off a major defeat against pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather back in May, Filipino boxing superstar Pacquiao will look to settle an old score with five-time world champion Bradley, whom he previously contested in 2012 and 2014. Both fighters share one win apiece from those earlier match-ups.

Saturday's fight has gained international attention not only for its promise to reveal the ultimate winner in this best-of-three, but it is also rumoured to be eight-division world champion Pacquiao's final fight before retirement.

Boxing fans will be tuning in to see if Pacquiao will go out with a bang or whether Bradley will avenge his only defeat to date; and with REV as the exclusive provider of "Pacquiao-Bradley 3" in The Bahamas, residents will be able to witness the outcome of the grand showdown along with the rest of the world.

"As the sole authorised broadcaster of the fight in The Bahamas, we're excited about bringing our subscribers this chance to see Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao in action before he is rumoured to hang up his gloves," REV Marketing Department Product Coordinator M'Khel Hanna-Ferguson said. "This is another opportunity for us to deliver top quality, must-have entertainment to our residential and commercial subscribers, as we did last year with the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight and continue to do with our Prime and Premium content packages."

Public invited to test drive electric car at Bahamas National Trust Saturday

The Minister will officially launch the introduction of the first public charging station at the Bahamas National Trust Saturday when members of the public are invited to test drive the vehicle.NASSAU, Bahamas -- Most official openings are celebrated with a cutting of the ribbon. But the Nissan Leaf is not most cars. It’s the first electric car being imported into The Bahamas by a dealer and when it is officially launched on Saturday, April 9, Environment Minister Kenred Dorsett will not only cut a green ribbon, he’ll mark the historic occasion by plugging in to the nation’s first public charging station.

“We are very excited about Saturday’s event and about partnering with the Bahamas National Trust for the first public charging station,” said Pia Farmer, a director of Easy Car Sales, the Gladstone Road-based company which is importing the world’s most popular e-car, the Nissan Leaf. “What attracted us to the car was the environmentally friendly nature of the vehicle with zero emissions and we could think of no better location than the National Trust headquarters on Village Road for the first official charging station.”

In countries with significant numbers of e-cars, charging stations are located along busy streets and in parking lots of everything from big box stores and malls to boutiques as a marketing tool to draw customers who can charge their vehicle while they dine, sip or shop. A recent piece by Bloomberg predicted that half the new cars sold by the year 2030 would be electric. And when Tesla, the designer of the first luxury electric sports car, announced it was taking orders for the more reasonably priced Model 3 that would start rolling off the assembly line in late 2017, it was bombarded by $1,000 deposits for more than a quarter of a million reservations within days.

“The Nissan Leaf sales may be a bit slower than that,” smiled Farmer, “but we are already seeing a great uptick in interest and we believe that interest will increase steadily as people see the value -- good for the environment, good for the pocketbook.”

WSC Gives Rotaract Club Important Lessons on Water & Sanitation - Water doesn’t just keep us alive, it’s in everything we do, everywhere we go and is something we use everyday.  Water & Sanitation Month is a designated period dedicated to recognizing the importance of proper sanitation practices in our daily lives. To help celebrate Water & Sanitation Month, the Rotaract Club of South East Nassau Centennial, invited the Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC) to speak at their weekly meeting.  As the Corporation recently completed their Wastewater Master Plan, the topic was very timely and the perfect time for WSC Senior Manager, Bradley Flowers, to discuss the new plan and give a general update on WSC’s current projects and successes.

Water & Sanitation Month is a designated period dedicated to recognising the importance of proper sanitation practices in our daily lives.

To help celebrate Water & Sanitation Month, the Rotaract Club of South East Nassau Centennial, invited the Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC) to speak at their weekly meeting. As the Corporation recently completed their Wastewater Master Plan, the topic was very timely and the perfect time for WSC Senior Manager, Bradley Flowers, to discuss the new plan and give a general update on WSC’s current projects and successes.

“I was pleased to be able to speak to the Rotaract Club on behalf of the Corporation,” said Flowers. “As professionals in the water and sanitation industry, it is important to let people know about our role in the community in ensuring that we provide not only safe, potable water, but also sanitation services to protect the health and well-being of our people. The Corporation takes its role very seriously, and continues to make improvements to the collection system as well as its wastewater facilities.”

In 2009, the Corporation developed a Water and Sanitation Sector Strategic Plan, which was revised in 2013 with grant financing from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The new Wastewater Master Plan, which was completed in 2015, included assessment of the existing sewerage network/facilities for New Providence, the rehabilitation/expansion of major treatment plants, the rehabilitation of gravity collection systems and force mains, and the refurbishment of sewer lift stations.
