THE TRAILBLAZERS: Dionne Jackson-Miller elected new PAJ President + Usain Bolt spices up new Digicel ad

KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL: The world's perennial king of the track, Usain Bolt, is always inhabiting some cool character or another in his television commercials, with some degree of authenticity. (For the record, he might want to give those recurring Hollywood movie offers some serious consideration post-2017. Saved by Data, his latest clip, for regionally expanding telecomms giants Digicel finds the superstar athlete ensconced in the kitchen (of all places!) dressed up in his five-star finest and demonstrating deft handling of utensils while sporting his signature megawatt grin. Clearly, someone has been sharpening their culinary skills. It's a fast-paced and crispy shot clip that banks on the sprinter's youthful charms, camera-ready presence and limitless inner confidence. Watch it HERE.

TOP STORY: And speaking of iconic citizens, the hardest working woman in the media has risen to fill what is perhaps the highest office in Jamaican journalism. On the weekend, the RJR Group's Dionne Jackson-Miller was elected president of the Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ), succeeding Jenni Campbell of The Gleaner Company. Jackson-Miller, the reigning Journalist of the Year, is a woman who was clearly born to lead, and she appears ready to take the organization into the future. "We have a lot of in-house issues that we need to deal with. We need to strengthen the structure of the organization," Jackson-Miller explains. "We need to improve our financials.....and put ourselves in a more viable position." The ace newswoman, who hosts RJR's Beyond the Headlines and TV J's All Angles, heads an executive also comprised of Vice-President Helene Coley-Nicholson; 2nd VP Karen Madden-James; secretary Rohan Powell and treasurer Celia Morgan.
