Shaune Forrest is the son of Shane St Patrick Forrest & Christine Lynch both from St Mary, Jamaica.

Back then Shaune Songz was known as Ajohn, the brothers learned to compose their own beats and self-record. From 2005 Shaune Songz has been performing at various local shows. After failing to impress the judges on a Digicel Rising Star Audition, Shaune decided that he would perfect his craft. In June 2014 he reappeared to the music scene with his hit single Honestly, an gospel inspired song. Thus his will power and determination can only result in growth and success. 2015 sparked new connections. Shaune collaborated with various writers and artists such as DJ Broshone, Blunt Queen and other Indie Artists, which led to songs like Wave The Hand & All Nite.

    Proxy The Film: Writer/Director/Actor Brandon Deyette and Actor Charlie Harding

    in Movies

    Nicholas Snow welcomes Brandon Deyette who wrote, produced, directed and acts in his latest film, Proxy. Also joining the show, adult film star Charlie Harding who is making his mainstream entertainment debut in Proxy as Tristan.

    The film's synopsis?  On a Sunday in July, one man’s indiscretion affects eight lives. Josh thinks his only goal is to get back his grandmother’s engagement ring from ex-girlfriend Tess. A casual day gets much more serious for Steve and Tristan once their friend Price leaves for a date. A family secret causes friends Becca and Kari to reveal secrets of their own.

    Deyette started producing in 1994, at the legal age of 14 years old. While this seems like a stretch, it was merely a favor from a friend’s father that allowed him to do so. Since then, he’s gone on to work in Broadcast News, produced photo shoots, commercials, theatre, and video; written for and acted in theatre and commercials.  Harding began his performance career by playing Charlie Brown on stage in high school. After many years out of the performance arena, he made his adult acting debut for Falcon Studios in February 2012. He has performed in over 25 adult films.

  • Marshall Klarfeld: Archaeological Evidence for the Anunnaki Civilization

    in News

    Marshal Klarfeld is an author and retired engineer. Since his retirement he has researched the work done by Zecharia Sitchin on the mythology of the Sumerian civilization. Like Sitchin, Klarfeld believes Sumerian records chronicle the visitation of an extraterrestrial civilization called the Anunnaki. Klarfeld believes that there is also archaeological evidence of their existence. We talk to Klarfeld about how he first got interested in this topic, and what he believes is the best evidence to indicate that the Sumerian mythologies are real. 

    From Adam: The Missing Link

    As an undergraduate student at CALTECH in the late 1940’s, Marshall was fascinated by the advanced scientific knowledge found in the Bible’s story of creation. Genesis describes the creation of our solar system as occurring in a 6 “day” time frame. His question was, how did this 5,000 year old Bible description of the birth of our solar system disclose the advanced scientific information (the ignition of our Sun occurs at the 4th “day”, in a 6 “day” creation process), thousands of years before we discovered it?

    Uncertain how to unravel this puzzle, he questioned his Nobel laureate professors, Linus Pauling and Richard Feynman. Their powerful answers stayed with him for decades and inspired him to pursue the knowledge that he is now able to share with the readers of "Adam, The Missing Link."

    The Beaches of the Virgin Islands: St. John

    in Culture

    Most visitors and locals will agree that when it comes to beaches on St. John a 'good to best' scale just would not do. The scale for describing St. John's beaches is 'Great', 'Greater' and 'It's a secret so I am not telling anyone'. All beaches on St. John are open to the public. Beachfront property however, in many cases is private and a few popular beaches have hotels nearby. Respect private property when accessing beaches. It is illegal to collect shells from beaches in the Virgin Islands; shells are confiscated at airport customs. There are no clothing-optional beaches in the Virgin Islands.

    General Beach Information:

    Don’t feed marine life or sea birds. Food not naturally in their diet, like various human foods, can create health problems for these animals.

    All beaches in the U.S. Virgin Islands are open to the public. Beyond a beach's tree line however is typically private property.

    Resort beaches are open to the public; only some, however, rent chairs and water sports gear to non-guests.

    Swimming pools and similar resort amenities are typically reserved for registered-guests only.

    Protect yourself from the sun. Wear sun block, a hat and sunglasses.

    Sun, rum, and fun can spell dehydration; so drink plenty of water.

    There are no clothing optional beaches; public nudity is illegal.

    Removing shells and sand from beaches is illegal.

    Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    in Health

    Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms.. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mammogram. Some things may increase your risk. If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer.
    Reproductive risk factors
    • Being younger when you had your first menstrual period.
    • Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child.
    • Starting menopause at a later age.• Using hormone replacement therapy for a long time.
    Other risk factors
    • Getting older.
    • A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other
    breast problems.
    • A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child).
    • Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2).
    • Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest.
    • Being overweight, especially after menopause.

    Can’t afford a mammogram?
    If you have a low income or do not haveinsurance and are between the ages of
    40 and 64, you may qualify for a free or
    low-cost mammogram through CDC’s
    National Breast and Cervical Cancer
    Early Detection Program. To learn more,
    call (800) CDC-INFO.     Ref:  cdc.gov
