CALIFORNIA---Reggae legend Bob Marley
is riding the charts again, having broken
into the Top 10 of Billboard s Social 50
chart last week.
According www.billboard.com, Marley,
who remains the most famous and revered
Jamaican more than 30 years after his death
from cancer, jumped to ninth place from
In an article written by William Gruger,
the sudden ascent was attributed to a recent
partnership with television sports network
The network has been showcasing Mar-
ley s music since July and will make his cat-
alogue a major part of ESPN s upcoming
According to Gruger s article, "Marley
has one of the largest followings of any
deceased musician. With 44 million Face-
book fans, only Michael Jackson has a larger
audience (61 million fans) among deceased
The Social 50 ranks the most popular
artistes on electronic media YouTube, Vevo,
Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Wikipedia,
Myspace and Instagram.
The chart s methodology blends weekly
additions of friends, fans and followers,
along with artiste page views, song plays
and reactions, as measured by music ana-
lytics company Next Big Sound.
Far more than just Jamaica s most out-
standing musical export, Marley is remem-
bered for his powerful message of unity and
respect which continues to resonate in the
country of his birth and around the world.
Since its release in 1984, three years after
his death, Marley s Legend compilation has
annually sold over 250,000 copies, according
to Nielsen SoundScan, and it is only the

US plans to aid
NEW YORK---Caribbean American Congress-
woman Yvette D Clarke has welcomed a plan by
New York City to aid undocumented Caribbean
New York City officials say the city will spend
US$18 million to help undocumented Caribbean and
other immigrants find jobs.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, a mayoral
candidate, said the money will fund legal services
and adult education classes that the US federal gov-
ernment requires immigrants to take to qualify for
the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals pro-
The New York Immigrant Family Unity Project
will provide free legal services to immigrants threat-
ened with deportation who are unable to represent
themselves in proceedings.
"New York has always been a city of immigrants
within a nation of immigrants," said Clarke, the
daughter of Jamaican immigrants, who represents
the Ninth Congressional District in Brooklyn.
"Under this programme, thousands of immigrants
in Brooklyn and other parts of the City will finally
have an opportunity to challenge the deportation
proceedings that separate families and weaken com-
munities," she added.
The programme permits immigrants to live and
work in the US, regardless of the outcome of an
immigration reform bill currently in the House of
Representatives, provided they are between 15 and
31 years-old as of June 15, 2012.
Nearly 80,000 immigrants living in New York are
eligible for the deferred action, but about 16,000
need to enroll in an adult education programme to
for St Lucia
CASTRIES---The St Lucia government says it will
soon bring to Parliament, anti-gang legislation, as
part of a strategic "no nonsense" approach to dealing
with criminal gangs on the island.
"In the past we silently ignored the mushrooming
of gangs in our midst sometimes under the misguided
notion of freedom of association but since when an
association established for criminal enterprise to
steal, murder and plunder at will is protected by our
"To date the police are working assiduously to deal
with gangs and the negative gang culture that spawns
anti social behaviour and organise crime. We will
support their efforts by enacting anti gang legislation
as has been done in Trinidad and Tobago and about
to be done in Jamaica," said Prime Minister Dr Kenny
