That's getting to be a little bit old right now, and besides, the Bolton appointment is going to spark quite a controversy on this side of the pond (Altantic ocean). --Titoxd (User:Titoxd) 23:08, 1 August 2005 (UTC) ***** On this side of the pond (Altantic ocean) ? Hmmm... how did the Bolton appointment affect Greenland, Iceland, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica ..... ? Would the UN ambassadors from other countries care ? IMO, this appointment seems a little too much of a local domestic news item to me. If something shocking develops, such as Congress "retaliates" with some unprecedented moves, this may be ITN-worthy. Nothing like that yet. I'd wait. -- PFHLai (User:PFHLai) 07:53, 2005 August 2 (UTC) '''Austin Codrington''' (born 22 August 1975) is a Jamaican-born cricketer who plays for Canada (Canadian cricket team).

, with their individualizing Protestant religions, found it easier to exploit the slaves and to draw hard and fast social categories. But Mintz argued that the treatment of slaves had to do instead with the integration of the colony into the world economic system, the degree of control of the metropolis over the colony, and the intensity of exploitation of labor and land (Mintz, 1974a:59-81). In collaboration with anthropologist Richard Price, Mintz considered the question of “creolization” (a term used to describe the blending of two or more cultural traditions to create a new one) in Afro-American culture in the book ''The Birth of African-American Culture: An Anthropological Approach'' (Mintz and Price 1992, first published in 1976 and first delivered as a conference paper in1973). There, the authors qualify anthropologist Melville J. Herskovits’s view that Afro-American culture was mainly African cultural survivals. But they also oppose those who claimed African culture was stripped from the slaves through enslavement, such that nothing “African” remains in Afro-American cultures today. Combining Herskovits’s cultural anthropological approach and the structuralism of anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss, Mintz and Price argued that Afro-Americana is characterized by deep-level “grammatical principles” of various African cultures, and that these principles extend to motor behaviors, kinship practices, gender relations, and religious cosmologies. This has been an influential model in the ongoing anthropology of the African diaspora (see Yelvington 2001).

thousands of tree and fern species and rare animals. Flora and fauna thumb Jamaican boa (File:Epicrates subflavus.jpg) thumb Jamaican hutia (File:Geocapromys brownii Harvard University small.jpg) Jamaica's climate is tropical, supporting diverse ecosystems with a wealth of plants and animals. Jamaica's plant life has changed considerably over the centuries. When the Spanish arrived in 1494, except for small agricultural clearings, the country was deeply forested. The European settlers cut down the great timber trees for building and ships' supplies, and cleared the plains, savannas, and mountain slopes for intense agricultural cultivation. Many new plants were introduced including sugarcane, bananas, and citrus trees. Areas of heavy rainfall contain stands of bamboo, ferns, ebony, mahogany, and rosewood. Cactus and similar dry-area plants are found along the south and southwest coastal area. Parts of the west and southwest consist of large grasslands, with scattered stands of trees. The Jamaican animal life, typical of the Caribbean, includes highly diversified wildlife with many endemic species found nowhere else on earth. As with other oceanic islands, land mammals are mostly bats. The only non-bat native mammal extant in Jamaica is the Jamaican hutia, locally known as the coney. Introduced mammals such as wild boar and the small Asian mongoose are also common. Jamaica is also home to about 50 species of reptiles, Reptile Database the largest of which is the American crocodile; however, it is only present within the Black River and a few other areas. Lizards such as anoles, iguanas and snakes such as racers and the Jamaican boa (the largest snake on the island), are common in areas such as the Cockpit Country. None of Jamaica's eight species of native snakes is venomous. commons:Jamaica
