Dr. Joseph Evans, the leading Urologist in The Bahamas, and a member of the Grant's Town Seventh-day Adventist Church, Wellington Street, Nassau; recently published a book entitled "161 Sexual Myths" The book is available at the Adventist Book Center, Chapter One at the University of The Bahamas, and the Bahamas Urology Center, Mount Royal Avenue. The book can also be purchased on Amazon.com, Barns and Noble, and in Kindle format.
161 SEXUAL MYTHS is a compilation of commonly heard sexual myths. Facts rebutting the myths are logical, medically correct and scientifically sound. Some myths would seem comical but the consequences can be serious.
Most of these myths were noted over the years by the author. His interest in these myths was stimulated when he found that no
book or specific volume was available on the subject. He chose to write the first specific book on the subject. 161 SEXUAL MYTHS is the result of his efforts.
Dr. Evans says that this book is especially valuable for adolescents and young adults. These individuals are bombarded daily with incorrect sexual information. 161 SEXUAL MYTHS clears up a web of confusion.

The 44th anniversary of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas sits atop mounting evidence that we have proven ourselves worthy of the independence which our forefathers fought so acidulously for. The theme chosen for this year’s celebration, toward the rising sun: One God, One People, One Bahamas portrays a hopeful future if in fact we can achieve this projected vision in totality.
This theme mirrors the prayer Christ had for His disciples as he was about to leave earth. St. John 17:20-21 records, “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
There is however one slight difference; Christ recognizes that the declaration of One God is already a reality while the other manifestations of unity is a projected hope. In fact, one-third of our theme is already accomplished and acknowledgment of this fact will empower us to achieve personal and national unity. There is so much latent power in genuinely embracing the unity of the Trinity. When an individual recognizes that the celebrated Savior, for some highlighted at Christmas and Easter, is one with the Holy Spirit who convicts of sin and one with the mighty force of creation and redemption then we are driven to consider our role in fostering the spirit of love grace and majesty gifted to human beings by the united God.
If there was ever a time as a people we needed to foster this unity; that time is now. The reality is that the gift of independence calls for us to be interdependent, for no man is an island, no man stands alone. Each one is my brother and sister. We need one another, more than ever before. It is my prayer that as Bahamians the sentiments of Christ will prevail in each heart and the biblical value of unity will be more than a word or concept but indeed a reality.
When the vision of One People is achieved then One Bahamas will be inevitable. With great anticipation and profound confidence in my people I boldly share the vision, One God, One People, One Bahamas. Happy Independence to one and all and may our God truly be proud of our nation.
