The Cable

Over the past couple weeks the eZone team has reached out to our affected islands to see what we can do to help, and after speaking to our fellow people we have discovered that we need to help the children!
Many of the schools were damaged severely during the hurricanes and our goal is to help those kids get back into school to continue their education.
We need your help eZone family! We have created an amazon registry online with all of the items these kids are in need of. We are asking you to simply go onto our amazon registry, purchase an item and ship it to our eZone hurricane relief address. There will be no freight charges, no duties - nothing!  We will take care of everything. Once the items reach our Miami warehouse we will be distributing them throughout the affected islands during the month of October. 
Please donate whatever you can, no matter how big or small. Together we can recover from these horrible disasters, together we can get these kids back in school, together we are #CaribbeanStrong!

(AP) - Former UFC champ Ronda Rousey is turning to "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling for inspiration more than a week after getting humiliated in a comeback match against Amanda Nunes.

The fight at UFC 207 was halted just 48 seconds in after Rousey was pummeled by Nunes. Rousey didn't talk to reporters afterward.

On Monday, Rousey posted a quote from Rowling on Instagram , "And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."

Rousey's Dec. 30 matchup with Nunes was her first fight since losing the UFC women's bantamweight title to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in 2015.

St. Kitts and Nevis, WINN): Javed Daniel of Saddlers Village has been arrested and charged for last week’s armed robbery of a Fraites bread delivery van.

The incident took place just after 4am Wednesday, October 19 when a man brandishing a gun robbed the bread van driver of his money bag when the van was making a delivery in Saddlers.

WINN FM was reliably informed that the driver fired his own gun at the assailant as he fled.

Later that morning Daniel turned up at the Cayon Police Station and filed a report that masked men had opened fire on him in Cayon and he had been struck once in the leg.

WINN FM also received credible reports that the gunshot injury and the robbery may have been connected. It was alleged that the wounded robber had taken a passenger bus from Saddlers to Cayon.  

Daniel was hospitalized for a few days for treatment of his injury and upon discharge was arrested and charge for the crime.
