    To be clear, Cuba is no longer the cold war proxy, challenging socio-political stability, but rather the country has emerged as a growing threat as a location for foreign direct investment and development inputs from the outside world. The unveiling of a mega-port in Mariel -- that famous hub for the export of Cubans to the United States -- should serve notice to Jamaica, The Bahamas and the Dominican Republic that in their midst is a trans-shipment hub that may one day soon directly compete with them for one of the few industries in which they have an advantage, which is the movement of goods to and from the US.

To be clear, Cuba is no longer the cold war proxy, challenging socio-political stability, but rather the country has emerged as a growing threat as a location for foreign direct investment and development inputs from the outside world. The unveiling of a mega-port in Mariel -- that famous hub for the export of Cubans to the United States -- should serve notice to Jamaica, The Bahamas and the Dominican Republic that in their midst is a trans-shipment hub that may one day soon directly compete with them for one of the few industries in which they have an advantage, which is the movement of goods to and from the US. For Jamaica, Cuba's Mariel may make it that much more difficult to find the financing and shipping partners necessary for that country to position itself as a major hub, though Panama Canal delays may be helpful in buying time to address environmental issues and funding needs for the locations currently under consideration. More critically, however, is the interest by entities such as the European Union (EU) and others in determining ways to work with Cuba. The fact that the EU now seeks to deepen relations with Cuba on trade and investment should be worrying to Caribbean governments and organisations. This, especially considering the increasingly fractious relationship that exists between many countries and the EU. A relationship that brings new capital and technical assistance to Cuba should not be ignored, as Cuba's efforts at free market reform offer the EU and others an opportunity to position their companies for future market openings while the wider Caribbean region continues to stagnate and lose ground as a place to do business. As it relates to the improving of EU relations with Cuba, the lifting of sanctions in 2008, visits by various EU government officials, and a push to recalibrate the relationship with the country all highlight an EU interest in expanding its role as Cuba's biggest foreign investor. A large market in need of infrastructure and private sector investment, Cuba remains largely untapped and it is opportunities for investment rather than trade that drives the EU agenda. Much like with the rest of the Caribbean, Cuba exports little to the EU. For the Caribbean, there is the perception that the region is weak in executing initiatives and, further, that it is a space seen as increasingly leaning towards mendicancy. Efforts by some countries to sue for reparations do little to position the region as friendly to an EU which, in its own evolution, now includes countries with no shared history with the region, and who are increasingly likely to view the Caribbean as hostile. Sadly, all of the above can only serve to allow EU policymakers to see Cuba as an easier partner to deal with -- even with its human rights issues -- than, in particular, the English-speaking Caribbean countries that make up Caricom.

OVA makes its own compost from animal waste and uses natural fertilizers and insect repellents. Fish in an open water holding tank, for example, keep the water from becoming stagnant and attracting mosquitoes. Several of the OVA workers have degrees in science or agriculture. The sustainable nature of the farm makes it an attractive place for tourists and students of organic agriculture around the world. One observer, Alejandro Rivera, who wants to start his own version of OVA in Mexico, spent two weeks on the farm studying various methods of sustainability.

Dramatic, the thaw in ties with the Castro regime has been in the works for months. Now, Washington is moving to normalise relations with Havana. Obama has yet to obtain consent from Congress before completely lifting sanctions against Washington's longtime enemy. But what's behind this sudden shift? And why now?

English/Nat Australian marathon swimmer Susie Maroney says she is very happy she has achieved her goal of being the first person to swim from Cuba to America. Although the 21-year-old stopped 12 miles short of Key West on the Florida coast she did make it into U-S waters and into the history books. Just hours after she was plucked from the water suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and seasickness, Susie Maroney was celebrating her marathon win that takes her into the history books. She is the first person to swim from Cuba to America even though she did not quite make it to dry land in Florida - stopping just 12 miles short of Key West. SOUNDBITE: (English) Yeah a lot of people had the message that I came short of Florida but the swim that we did was from Cuba to America and we passed American waters and were in America and that is the orificial thing that we were praying for. So when people know and I explain it to them that it is official they understand it and they are really good about it and they are happy for me. SUPER CAPTION: Susie Maroney, Australian Swimmer After 39 hours in the water and swimming 89 miles from Havana, Maroney was plucked from the sea Sunday afternoon as she entered U-S territorial waters. She swam in a wire cage attached to a motor boat to protect her from sharks. During her swim she was not allowed to grab the side of the cage, touch the bottom or get on board the boat for a break. She did not sleep, treading water for a rest and eating a liquid diet of mashed bananas and yoghurt. When a storm blew up Saturday night already harsh conditions became even worse. SOUNDBITE: (English) Because we had a very bad storm we were actually put of course there was no way we could go in the direction of Key West because it was just, totally away from it, our observer and our official told us that anywhere in America if we go past American waters ,you are in American waters you have officially made the swim and from where we finished there were islands around there so I am very happy with that and I am glad it is official. SUPER CAPTION: Susie Maroney, Australian Swimmer To the sounds of boats blowing their horns in celebration, Maroney was helped from the sea as soon as she entered U-S waters. SOUNDBITE: (English) She did in fact set the record for a swim unaided and uninterrupted from Cuba into American waters SUPER CAPTION: Tom Hetzel, Official Observer Maroney left Havana before dawn on Saturday. Within the first six miles she became seasick and suffered depression along the way and occasionally cried, but she managed to keep up her spirits. SOUNDBITE: (English) As soon as I arrived in Cuba the people were just so friendly towards me and I knew it would be fine because you know I am a swimmer and I have nothing to do with the political side of it is just a stretch of water that has not been done. SUPER CAPTION: Susie Maroney, Australian Swimmer As soon as she stopped swimming Maroney was rushed by boat and ambulance to hospital. After achieving her goal, Maroney says she has no plans to try it again.
