WE KICK OFF OUR ISSUE THIS FALL with some very lovely young ladies gracing our cover. Although model-worthy indeed, these ladies are no ordinary cover girls, but instead part of this year’s crop of The Bermudian’s 2014 Rising
Stars. In all, we meet 10 Gen Y-ers who are making a name for themselves in Bermuda’s business world, shining brightly in insurance, hospitality, finance, marketing and IT. We are proud
to showcase their talents and wish them luck and Godspeed on their journey to the top.
We just love our Homes feature this issue, where we peek into some dreamy children’s bedrooms. Kids’ rooms don’t get much cuter than these, but it is not all frills and froth as the designers—and talented moms—behind the designs will tell you. Creating a kid’s room that grows
is important, and these spaces are celebrated not only for the to-die-for décor, but also for the
thought and planning that has gone into making spaces that are efficient and durable, too.
Something new to The Bermudian this fall is a fiction piece written by Alexandra Stewart.
“Off Nonsuch, 1934,” is a wonderful fictionalised account of the historic August 15, 1934,
descent by William Beebe and Otis Barton in the bathysphere when they set the world record
for the deepest dive. Their observations of the environment they discovered were relayed to
Gloria Hollister at the surface via telephone. Stewart beautifully brings to life the characters,
the history and the full drama of the event.
Interestingly, we have another feature on important scientific work, albeit of a different
kind, taking place under the ocean. “The Significance of Shipwrecks” asks the question: Why
is it important to spend money on exploring and conserving shipwrecks, especially when it is
expensive and often dangerous? As part of the support for her thesis, author Kristina Kenniker
talks with Bermuda’s Custodian of Historic Wrecks, Dr. Philippe Rouja. Rouja, of all people,
knows how important exploring wrecks is—especially after his fascinating archaeological
work on the Mary Celestia that unearthed some very exciting and historic artifacts. For more
information and multimedia on this story go to thebermudian.com.
And finally this issue, I want to draw attention to the second
episode in our new series, The Consummate Bermudian. Last issue
we presented “The Book Collector” where, after much discussion with authorities, Liz Jones told us which of the many, many
Bermuda books ever published are a must in your library. This issue
we focus on the accomplished Bermudian as a cocktail connoisseur, and who better to tell us how to create the perfect cocktail
and set up the consummate Bermudian bar than Charles Gosling
of Gosling Brothers. Stayed tuned for guidance from the experts as
The Consummate Bermudian series continues
