ON THE SCENE: Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce + PM Portia Simpson-Miller + Hansle Parchment + Roger Clarke + Norman Grant + Harry Belafonte

MEASURE OF A MAN: Aug. 7, Switzerland. Entertainment icon Harry Belafonte flashes a warm smile as he poses with the special Lifetime Achievement Award he recently received at the 2012 Locarno Film Festival. Earlier this year, Belafonte's life was the subject of the acclaimed documentary Sing Your Song, now out on DVD.

COUNTRY STRONG: Aug. 8, Britain. Jamaica's Hansle Parchment celebrates his wonderful bronze-medal run in the Men's 110M hurdles at the London Summer Olympics on Wednesday. Parchment's outstanding performance resulted in a new national record of 13.12 seconds.

PRIDE AND JOY: Aug. 8, Britain. The petite dynamo known as Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce just keeps adding to her prize haul in London. The two-time 100M Olympic champion raced to a silver-medal finish in the 200M on Wednesday behind the American powerhouse Allyson Felix, who seemed to execute the perfect race to cop the gold. Fraser-Pryce will now turn her attention to this weekend's 4X100 M relay.

HOW SWEET IT IS: Aug. 6, Clarendon. A super-stylish PM Portia Simpson-Miller participates in the cutting of a cake to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Food show in Clarendon on Independence Day. In her remarks, Simpson-Miller said next month will see the launch of the National Food and Nutrition Security Policy, which will outline specific targets for food production. Also pictured above are, from left, outgoing President of the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS), Glendon Harris; Agriculture minister, Roger Clarke, and President-elect of the JAS, Senator Norman Grant.
