Doctor Love: Proud Male Nurse
Dear Doctor Love, I am a male who has worked hard to obtain my Bachelors Degree in Nursing. As long as I can remember I’ve wanted to care for people and try in some way to make their lives better. My educations allows me to care for their health but I also listen to their stories, hold their hand when they are afraid and comfort them when they are alone and missing their children. It has never been my goal to stand above them and diagnose or cure them, but to be by their side and give emotional as well as physical comfort and support. The woman I intend to marry is embarrassed to call me a nurse. She pushes for me to become a physician, saying I am wasted as an RN. It is a touchy subject in our relationship, but we manage to smooth it over.

Caricom's divide must be bridged
It's no secret that the countries of the Caribbean Community and Common Market (Caricom) are divided over the response to the situation in Venezuela. Detractors of the Caricom project and Caribbean integration have seized upon the obvious cleavage in the grouping to advance their view that not only is Caribbean integration not possible, it isn't even desirable. It might surprise these detractors to know that Caricom is not the only group of nations in the Organization of American States (OAS) in which division over the response to the situation in Venezuela exists.
