Professor Janice Levy traveled to Antigua in January to lead two photography workshops. Her visit was part of the Government Assisted Technology Endeavour (GATE) project and ICT cadet program, which “provides an opportunity for young people interested in working in information technology related fields to acquire technical skills, as well as to gain valuable workplace experience.”
One of Levy’s workshops focused on technical and critical photographic skills. Her second workshop was intended for intermediate, advanced, and professional photographers and focused on ways these photographers can market their work.
Levy was welcomed to Antigua by Hon. Balwin Spencer, the Prime Minster, and Dr. Hon. Edmond Mansoor, the Minister of Telecommunications, Science, and Technology.

The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Friday, February 14th. Important reasons not to miss the next screening:
1. 65 million Americans have hypertension (high blood pressure)
2. Many people don't even know their blood pressure is high because there are no symptoms in most cases
3. Hypertension can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and kidney disease
4. 66% of those IC employees measured at the last screening were pre-hypertensive (above ideal )
5. A 20 point increase in systolic blood pressure (top number) or a 10 point increase in diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) doubles the risk of heart disease.
6. Poor diet, inactivity, and being overweight can lead to an increase in blood pressure
7. If one does not adopt a healthy lifestyle, the hypertensive individual will need to take costly medication with potential side effects
8. Physical and emotional stress can elevate your blood pressure
