Crocodile Safety and ACES Updates
With Christmas comes the full on breeding season for the American crocodile, Crocodylus acutus, in Belize. For this reason the larger crocs are on the move. Males are seeking out females while females are searching for suitable nesting habitat. Just since this past October, the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES), Belize’s leading crocodile research and rescue organization, has received 41 calls from concerned residents about crocodiles in their area. After hundreds of volunteered hours to investigate each croc call, only nine crocodiles were deemed problematic and relocated for human, and croc, safety. Please keep in mind that crocodiles are primarily a shy, timid species; and, while the females are territorial over nesting grounds (March through August), large males are for the most part continually on the move, especially this time of the year. However, crocodiles will congregate in areas where there is an easy food source; so PLEASE… Do not directly feed crocodiles. It is illegal, extremely dangerous, and fed crocodiles start to look for people for food. Do not toss food scraps into the water or at the waters’ edge. This means all food waste, not just fish and chicken. While one may think that last night’s rice and beans will not attract a crocodile, it does attract fish and raccoons which are the crocodiles’ main sources of food. This also leads to pets being attacked by accident.

Have a Pineapple Boat at Pineapples Restaurant
You could say that Pineapples is somewhat of a themed restaurant, but it’s not tacky, by far. It blends very well with the earthy feel at Ramon’s Village, the resort in which it is located. It can be very elegant, upscale and at the same time very casual as it caters to both the resort’s guests and anybody who desires to indulge in sweet decadence. I say sweet because a lot of the restaurant’s dishes are centered around one main ingredient; you guessed it – the pineapple. The restaurant has established itself as one of the leading restaurants on the island, yet I still don’t think the local residents are aware of the goodness they are missing out on not having dined at Pinapples Restaurant. Take for example the Pineapple Boat and Pineapple Explosion on the menu. They scream originality and sweet goodness. The Pineapple Boat is the restaurants signature dish - scrumptious oriental fried rice loaded with chunks of sweet and delicious fresh pineapple and succulent grilled shrimp served in an authentic pineapple boat, topped with crispy fried rice noodles.

Belize Stands Up for Violence Against The Elderly After Recent Violent Attacks
Helpage Belize along with its sister organizations under the National Council on Ageing have sent out press releases expressing their condemnation of the recent home invasion and brutal assault inflicted on 93-year-old senior citizen of Belize City, Mr. Patrick Grant. Since October of this year there have been reports of violent crimes against older persons in different parts of the country. In each incident these heinous crimes have caused shock and disbelief among Belizeans. Last night’s coverage of the brutal and senseless attack of a 93-year-old man in his home in Belize City once again highlights the vulnerability of older persons across the country. Belize’s population of older persons continues to grow every year and with it challenges of care, security and safety remains an issue for many and their family. “Over the past months we have observed the growing trend of violence against the elderly in Belize,” stated Helpage Belize in their press release. “Those abuses range from what might clearly constitute a criminal offence, e.g. sexual or physical abuse, theft, etc., to acts that cause grievous harm. In 2014, brutal assaults perpetuated against senior citizens have resulted in deaths of Mrs. Coc of Colombia Village, Toledo District and Mrs. Augustine of Hopkins Village, Stann Creek District. In addition, the husband of Mrs. Augustine (Dudley Augustine) was grievously assaulted and left almost lifeless.”

Gas Prices Go Up as Belize Increases Import Duties on Fuel Products
World fuel prices are at an 11-year low, but why is it that fuel pump prices in Belize went up at midnight on Monday, December 28, 2015? Well it is not because Belize is purchasing fuel at higher prices, but government says it has increased on import duties on fuel products. In a press release issued at the beginning of the week, the Government said that it needs to increase taxes on fuel products in order to pay its bills. Premium went up by 8% - 72 cents per gallon. Regular went up by 13% - 97 cents. Diesel went up by 13% - 81 cents. A government release says "the Import Duties on Premium Gasoline and Diesel Oil increased by 65 cents Belize per U.S. Gallon while the Import Duty on Regular Gasoline increased by 57 cents Belize per U.S. Gallon."

25 Years Ago - The Coming of Radio in Belize
Long before the coming of television to Belize we had the radio. There was one national radio all the way back into the 1950's and it was the B H B C, the British Honduras Broadcasting Corporation of Belize. As you might already know, British Honduras was the name of our country because it was a British Colony. B H B C was a national radio station that transmitted to all parts of the country. Obviously there were favorite personalities and favorite programs. One of the favorite male personalities was Edison Seferino Coleman whose artistic name was Sefe. Coleman was a comedian and did El Retorno de Seferino. He was also a powerful news Anchor. A favorite female personality was Lidia Ramirez, who hosted a children's program, Rincon Infantil. She played the guitar, sang, did stories and riddles and also enabled children and parents to send their requests and greetings.

A Christmas Miracle for Baby Shamir Born with Incomplete Esophagus
“I would never have believed that this would be our Christmas miracle,” commented Milagro Garel, Belize representative for the World Pediatric Project. “This could never have happened without the support and collaboration of Immigration dept - officers complete with CEO on the ground, the U.S. Embassy and KHMH who all came together to ensure that Shamir's life could be saved! World pediatric project has been working in Belize for the past 10 years and this is the 8th case of this exact condition that we have had in our hands! It is important for our story to be shared because those in need NEED to know that we are here in Belize and that our assign is saving our children!” There was never a guarantee that a specialized medical center would take up baby Shamir, especially since it is on a charity basis and, in this case, during the busy Holiday season. But that is now a thing of the past with baby Shamir now in Virginia where he is getting special nutrition to gain weight in order for him to undergo the major surgery needed to save his life.

Cayo Cop Accused Of Rape Criminally Arraigned
In last night's newscast you heard Vanessa Evans' chilling story. She alleges that while she was detained at the San Ignacio police station - a police officer took her out of her cell, guided her to a dark room, handcuffed her and raped her. It's rare that a rape victim speaks out publicly, but Evans told us she went through too much to be silent any longer. And she told us she is so happy she did because not the officer she claims raped her has been charged. Today we traveled to Cayo to find out more about the police investigation and also to capture Evan's reaction to the rape charges. Here is that story. Calm, respectful and committed. Those are just a few words used to describe Constable Luke Moriera. He was officer of the month for November of this year and his picture was among the other model officers on this wall. But today, instead of proudly walking out of the police station as he usually does, he walked out with his head hung low to court for his bail hearing. Moriera was charged for the rape of female detainee Vanessa Evans -and it happened right inside the police station. Insp. Reymundo Reyes, Deputy OC, San Ignacio Police: "It was shocking news, especially when the officer who was being accused named was called. Because he is a person that we do not have any sorts of irregularities - a calm person." But regardless of how surprising the news was, an investigation was done and statements from other police officers and prisoners were documented and surveillance footage was reviewed. Inspector Reyes told us this case was no different from any other.

Jailed For Allegedly Assaulting A 93 Year-old
93-year-old beating victim Patrick Grant is showing signs of recovery today. The Fern Lane resident was attacked in his home at dawn on Sunday, December 27th. The culprit was a robber who took his 21 inch TV. Grant's daughter Gilda Diaz told us today that he began to mumble today - and the first thing he did was pray:... Gilda Diaz, daughter "You know what is the condition from Sunday to now. Today with everybody's prayers he actually - I was pinching him and twisting his skin so he would respond. I know that hurts, but I had to do something for him to feel and open his eyes. I open his eyes with my fingers. I did him all sorts of stuff and then he started to groan and starting saying a couple little things and I told him and I said lets pray and he started to pray. But instead of praying for himself, he was praying for me and I told him we were praying for him. But anyway he said his prayers, which made me feel good because he likes to pray." Reporter: "Have the doctors indicated any need for a surgery or something like that?" Gilda Diaz, daughter: "That is what they are looking at. Does he need a surgery at this time? I hope not. I hope he is strong enough to heal himself. But I hope not, because people his age don't do very well I think with surgeries. Because there would be too many complications. But at least he wasn't talking very clearly, but he was mumbling and what eased my pain today was him saying his prayers. And that made a lot of difference to me."

Alleged Drunk Driver Arraigned For Killing Baby Genesis
Yesterday we told you about the tragic incident involving 1 year old Genesis Medina, who was knocked down and killed in the village of San Estevan in Orange Walk. It happened on Sunday night and today Orange Walk Police formally arraigned the man responsible for her death. He is 28th year old Eliseo Israel Larios. Larios was slapped with six traffic related charges when he appeared before the Magistrate's court in Orange Walk. His charges include: manslaughter by negligence, driving a vehicle with an alcohol concentration above prescribed limit, failure to report an accident, failure to stop and render aid, causing death by careless conduct and driving without due care and attention. In Court Larios was granted $5,000 dollars bail which he met. He has to surrender all his travel documents and was ordered to return to court on February 4th 2016.

Accused Child Molester Arraigned And Remanded
Today Orange Walk Police also made another arrest. On Monday we told you about the case of a 5 year old boy who was allegedly sexually molested by a man who was known to the family. It turns out it was the boy's uncle. For the protection of the child we will not broadcast neither the name nor photograph of the alleged perpetrator. What we can say however is that the man was today charged with sexual assault. Original reports were that sometime around 2 pm on December 26th, the mother was alerted by the screams of her mother in law who had just caught a man in the process of sexually assaulting the 5-year-old boy. The perpetrator was remanded to prison and is to return to court at a later date.

ADU Made A Huge Bust, Could Be Millions of Dollars In Heroine
The Police Anti-Drug Unit made what is believed to be a major drug bust last night in Belize City. Acting on intelligence, they stopped a vehicle at the Bel China Bridge, and when they searched it, they found 11 kilos of suspected heroine. They detained the driver, and transported the drugs to the police station. This driver remains in custody, and he may be criminally charged with drug trafficking. We say "may" because sources tell us that police have still not verified that it is heroin. Heroin busts are rare in Belize, and in all cases that we've reported on, it was found in the north, presumably on the way to Mexico. If verified, this would be the first major find in the city. Heroin has a far greater street value than cocaine, so 11 kilos could be worth more than a million US dollars. Again, though, they still have to determine whether it is heroine.

Rural Cops Caught A Big Gun, Says Criminals Were Going Equipped
For most of this month, Eastern Police Rural have been on the news giving updates on the eight armed thieves who burglarized the home of Lebanese Diplomat Sarkis Abou Nehra in Burrell Boom. A part of that narrative, was the attempt by police to prevent this crime, but the criminals were one step ahead. Well tonight, police are reporting that they are the ones who were a step ahead - and it allowed them foil a major robbery which was planned for a business place in Ladyville. Daniel Ortiz reports: This rusty looking gun looks like its definitely seen better days but the metal bar sitting on top of it, which also appears worse for wear, is an extended magazine clip, which was loaded with 30 bullets. It's a submachine gun, and police research says that it's most likely, a CZ 25 model, which are originate from Czechoslovakia. It's capable of rapid bursts of fire for a barrage of bullets at a chosen target.

Teenager Charged For Allegedly Stabbing Lennox To Death
Last night, we told you about 18 year-old Lennox Flowers, who was stabbed to death on Boxing Day at an after party at the Castleton Horse Racing Track in Burrell Boom. Well, police have charged one of the men who they believe was his attacker. He's 19 year-old Cecil Ramirez, a 6th Form Student who lives on Jasmine Street in Belize City. Today, Ladyville Police outlined what evidence and what motive they have so far: Insp. Juanito Cocom, OC - Ladyville Police "I want to update you in respect to the murder that occurred in Burrell Boom. We will be laying charges of murder to Cecil Ramirez this morning. He will be charged for murder." Reporter "We understand that they may have been 3 individuals involved." Insp. Juanito Cocom, OC - Ladyville Police "The evidence we have is pinpointing to only one person doing the stab wounds." Reporter "Yesterday I had asked no charges contemplated or conspiracy to commit murder?"

15 Year-old Kurk Still Hospitalized
Last night, we told you about 15 year-old Kurk Broaster. He was the young man who was shot yesterday near the Pickstock jungle area. Well, he remains at the KHMH tonight, recovering from gunshot injuries the chest. We approached his family today for comment but they declined. They did tell us that his status has improved since yesterday when he was first rushed to the hospital. They say that he is in a "critical but stable condition". As we told you he was standing at the corner of Pickstock Street and New Road when shooters passed by and fired at him. Street sources tell us that he was targeted as part of an ongoing gang rivalry.

Evaristo's Accused Murder Will Be Charged Soon
Punta Gorda Police continue to investigate the murder of 55 year-old Evaristo Bul, the Toledo Resident who was chopped and shot death on Boxing Day just outside his home village of San Pedro Colombia. The investigating officer from Punta Gorda expects to lay charges against one of the suspects tomorrow. As we had reported, police found Bul's lifeless body on the Jalacte Road between the San Pedro Colombia and San Miguel. His killer, police believe, chopped Bull several times to the head and face, and then shot him in the chest. Police say that his life was taken from him over a land dispute, while others suggest that there could be another motive.

Truck Driver Shot By Mexican Robbers Recuperating In Belize
On our Christmas Eve Newscast, we told you about Belizean Albert Gentle, a truck driver from Georgeville Village in Cayo. He was shot in the head on December 24 during a robbery while he was at a gas station in Villahermosa, Mexico. Well, we have confirmed that he's at home recuperating from that gunshot to the head. We spoke with him very briefly via telephone this evening, and he told us that his doctors say that he suffering from swelling in the brain caused by the bullet. He told us that as part of the bed rest regiment, he's not allowed to talk very much because it is taxing on his health at this time. Gentle was driving an 18-wheeler truck which was towing a container, and he was part of a convoy of 10 vehicles traveling to Belize. He briefly separated from the rest of the convoy, and stopped at a gas station in Villahermosa, the largest City in the Mexican State of Tabasco.

10 Years For Stabbing A Man 14 Times
3 weeks ago, we told you about Rafael Mencias, the Corozal resident who was convicted of manslaughter. That's after he stood trial before a jury who heard evidence that he stabbed a man 14 times. Well, Justice Herbert Lord heard his mitigation plea today, and after taking all factors in to consideration, he handed Mencias a Prison sentence of 10 years. But, because he had been on remand for 5 years while he awaited trial, the judge subtracted that from his sentence, and so, he will only, spend 5 more years in jail. As we reported, Mencias stood trial where the crown counsel called 11 witnesses to testify against him. The evidence outlined for the jury that on July 26, 2010, he stabbed Phillip Moses Hall 14 times while they were inside his apartment in Carolina Village, Corozal. In his defence, he told the court that he had just finished taking a bath when he heard his front door slam. He said that he panicked and started calling out and asking who was there.

The Power Jostling Before PUP's Big Convention
The PUP National Convention to elect a new executive is set for January 31st in Belmopan - and the race is expected to get a lot more interesting in the next four and a half weeks. That's because today was the deadline for each constituent and each unit of the party to submit the names of their delegates. It's a total of over 2,700 delegates - the most that have ever voted for an executive in either the UDP or the PUP. And that large number, in a three way race is what sets the stage for all kinds of craziness in the next few weeks. And here's why. Each constituency chairman is trying to deliver his block of delegates for one of the leadership candidates: Cordel Hyde, Francis Fonseca or John Briceno. So, that constituency chair only includes on his delegates list the most loyal party supporters he can find. But, it's virtually impossible to assure that these delegates do just what they are told to do - and there's the rub. Each candidate for leader has his constituency pledged, but holding together, say, a hundred delegates is no small task.

Cuban Humanitarian Crisis Resolution?
Earlier this month the Belize Government got a call of distress from the Costa Rican Government who asked if Belize would take in the 4 thousand Cuban migrants who found themselves stranded at the border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The Belize Cabinet turned the request down on the basis that they did not have sufficient evidence to make a proper decision. Today the Guatemalan Government issued a statement saying that after a successful meeting with parties including officials from the Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, and Guatemala, they got a commitment that the parties will work together on to see through this humanitarian crisis. Reports coming out of the meeting held in Guatemala were that a decision was made to airlift the stranded Cubans to El Salvador and put them on buses to cross from Guatemala into Mexico and ultimately cross the border in the US. When we spoke to personnel from Belize's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on this matter, we were told that the Cabinet position to not accept the migrants has not changed. [END]

Single Mother's Home Goes Up In A Blaze
A fire last night in the antelope street extension in Belize City destroyed the belongings of a single mother and her two children. 24 year old Geneve Armstrong lived in a one bedroom apartment with her two children. Armstong says that the raging fire burnt down the little she had. Now she is appealing to the public for financial assistant to help her send her kids to school on Monday, when classes resume. "I just want help with a little finance so I can buy back some of my things at least and for when school opens on Monday, so I can send my children to school the correct way. Right now they don't know what is happening. They are still happy. But it's me who is feeling everything when it's time to send them to school. I don't like to burden myself on people and that is what I am doing right now and I don't want to do that. So I am asking for a little help, so maybe I can rent a room because I don't really have a family that I can go to. It's just this sister that I am close to. I really can't to anyone. You can't burden people with your stress. So I just want to ask for help so that my children can feel like nothing didn't happen - rent a room and continue with my life. I really don't want a lot of things, just to buy back my bed and a fan for my children and the little of clothes that we lost."

Venezuelan Opposition Party Wants To Shut Down Petrocaribe
Three weeks ago we asked what will happen to Petrocaribe. That's after the opposition was elected in the Venezuelan parliament. They have a commanding supermajority - and plan to shake up the government of President Nicolas Maduro. Well, tonight we have the first indication that they are looking at Petrocaribe. Fox News Latino ran a story today headlined, quote, "Reckless giveaway of Venezuela's oil needs to stop, opposition says." The article says, quotes congressman Henrique Marquez, whos aid quote, "[State-owned oil company] P(e)d(e)v(e)sa, its whole operations, and those oil agreements with Cuba and Petrocaribe, that we should really look into." The article adds, quote, "the newly elected majority is threatening to cut the flow of cheap oil - especially given the current oil prices." It continues, "Fox News Latino spoke to several members of the upcoming supermajority opposition, all of whom said they wanted the oil agreements reviewed, if not altogether annulled."

Holiday downtime and finding an Apartment on Ambergris Caye
I have been fortunate enough to enjoy some downtime over the Holidays but for many businesses, high season is keeping everyone sliding full speed into the New Year. I know a few Cart rental companies and some hotels are fully booked. There has also been a recent restaurant demand to open on a day off due to a high request in bookings. Sadly for some, the wind is playing havoc with work and there are many tour cancellations right now due to wind and choppy waters. Strong winds are not only blowing on Ambergris Caye, they blowing in my life on a personal level. It is odd, but for about two weeks now I have been typing 2016 by accident. Usually I (like many) go through a short period of not remembering to put the new year instead of the old. I take the fact that my brain is jumping ahead as a sign it is going to be a good new year.

The Best Fried Fish EVER In San Pedro, Belize…Oh and A Gorgeous Day
The wind died down slightly yesterday and doesn’t seem to be ending until the strike of midnight 2016. TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For this Generation X’er (Which Generation are you?) – that date sounds insane. Yesterday, December 28th, winter in Belize, was a beauty. A great day to go sit beachside at Lily’s and enjoy two of the tastiest, deceivingly simplest dishes this island has to offer. We ordered conch ceviche, fried fish with french fries and coleslaw and soda water. Despite the crowd…the wait wasn’t long. And the lovely manager came out to see if we’d mind getting out ceviche first. MIND?!?!? And then the fried fish. Grouper. So fresh and just slightly SLIGHTLY undercooked when it arrives…perfectly seasoned battered. It is just so ridiculously tasty. I’ve had it 4 or 5 times at Lily’s for lunch and it is never cooked differently. I don’t know how they do it.

A Couple of Maya Making Magic
There’s a tiny little room “a bean-throw away from downtown San Ignacio”, in the Cayo district, where you smell the magic walking in. Ok, for those of you that don’t know I’m a chocoholic that sounded strange. No, I am not talking puffs of smoke and incantations; I’m talking the transformation of the artfully roasted cacao bean into the rich velvety goodness that is authentic Mayan chocolate. That’s right, I know the People On Our Map making it! Adrian and Elida Choco, believe their family name marked their destiny on this chocolate making journey. He was a bartender at Chaa Creek when he met Elida who was the receptionist at the same resort at the time. The bartender in him still believes it was his cocktails that won her over. They are now married with three children, a couple of six-year-old twins and a three-year-old, all girls! They are on a mission to share their culture’s traditional chocolate making techniques with their visitors. The respect for their culture is evident and starts with the first crop of the Cacao tree being buried as an offering to Earth, Rain and Sun in thanksgiving for the crop. It is with the second crop that they begin using the pods, roasting the seeds and making the widely desired masterpiece. I was not fortunate enough to visit the farm where the cacao is grown, harvested and roasted, but it is now at the top of my bucket list.

A Humble Home with a Million Dollar View
There are some People On Our Map outside of the public eye, tucked away in what would seem to be forgotten little corners of our country. You meet them by chance and exchange a wave or a smile and if you’re lucky, you get a little more. Luck was on our side the day we walked by the Maldonado home. The iTravel Belize team and I admired it’s rustic charm and immediately took our cameras out to capture the little wooden house. Mr. Maldonado appeared greeting us cheerfully and hurried to get his granddaughter Vanessa who invited us in to see something bigger than the home itself. As we walked through their home we were greeted by beautiful tiny faces, probably wondering what a trio of strangers was doing walking through their home. Avianie and her sister stayed cautious, but curious enough to follow and peek at us as we made our way to the back veranda where Vanessa insisted we step out to see the view. What a view it was indeed! Suddenly all of San Ignacio was visible from the little deck hanging off the side of a hill. It was fascinating and perhaps made even more so by the warmth of the people sharing it with us.

Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave (ATM Cave)
Even to the untrained eye, a peek inside a cave that was once home to an ancient civilization holds plenty of fascination. Rock walls. Strange ceiling and floor projectiles formed as water and minerals dripped and solidified for centuries. Spiders, bats and even fish coexist nicely, yet for the purist, no cavern is created equal—especially if that cave happens to be Belize’s Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave, otherwise known as the ATM Cave. This stronghold of ancient Mayan secrets and rituals will keep you spellbound from the moment you arrive. Once your eyes are accustomed to varying shades of black to grey that fill the ATM’s interior and you turn on your helmet light, you’ll spot the interiors of chamber after chamber until you arrive at The Cathedral. The cave’s most dramatic finds are here, including calcified skeletal remains of “The Crystal Maiden” whose bones sparkle like jewels due to centuries of mineral buildup. She’s not alone. Scan shelves and nooks to discover bones, relics, pottery and other ancient treasures in the dark silence of this inner chamber. Your journey begins in the Cayo District—specifically, the town of San Ignacio. You’ll need a guide to find your way, so check with the concierge at your resort or seek help in town. Once you’ve secured a guide, you’ll be driven to the banks of the Tapir Mountain Reserve, at which point, expect to hike about 45-minutes through jungle and streams to reach the entrance. It’s a tight fit and not for the claustrophobic, but once you reach your goal, the ATM Cave will reward you with sights and ambiance that has no equal.

Belize: doppio riconoscimento al World travel awards 2015
La Grande Barriera Corallina, considerata “Destinazione leader del Messico e Centroamerica”, e Placencia, riconosciuta come “Spiaggia leader in Messico e in Centroamerica”, hanno trionfato al World Travel Awards, consolidando il Belize come una delle mete turistiche più attraenti al mondo. La cerimonia di premiazione della 22esima edizione della manifestazione si è tenuta quest’anno a Bogotà, in Colombia. Einer Gómez, Vice Presidente del CDA del Belize Tourism Board, è stato incaricato di ritirare il premio e ha ringraziato il popolo del Belize e «tutti coloro che giorno dopo giorno si impegnano per offrire qualità del servizio e accogliere i viaggiatori nel nostro Paese a braccia aperte». Lucy Fleming, co-proprietaria e direttrice del Lodge at Chaa Creek, uno dei primi eco-resort in Belize, ha detto che questa è la prima volta che il Belize è apparso nella lista dei vincitori, «e il fatto che hanno vinto ben 2 attrazioni della regione è un risultato significativo di cui tutto il Paese può essere orgoglioso».

A Taste Test of Chocolate Bars Made From Scratch
In a blind tasting of 14 bean-to-bar chocolates made in the United States, these were the most impressive. The list was arbitrarily capped at eight. Given how different these bars are, comparisons are difficult and the order is approximate. Sampled on another day, any item might rise or fall a notch or more. Prices were paid in New York stores for two-ounce bars unless otherwise noted. 4. Dick Taylor: 72 percent Toledo from Belize ($9.50). A crisp bar that flexes into toffee and green bananas, with a hint of lemon on the long, bright finish.

Uncertain external economic outlook for Caribbean
Developing countries, including those in the Caribbean, will face an uncertain global economic situation in 2016, based on the weakening of the global economy during this year. A new study by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has identified the critical explanatory factor as being the substantial decline in commodity prices during the past 18 months. A very important development which has had both negative and positive implications has been the drop in the price of oil. Oil-importing economies have benefited from lower import bills but oil-exporting countries have been adversely affected. Commodity-dependent exporting countries, many of which are least developed countries, have also suffered from the declines in commodity demand and prices. Only the more diversified economies have continued to experience robust growth.

CRFM and IOI sign 5-year MoU to build the Caribbean’s capacity in Ocean Governance
The Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM) and the International Ocean Institute (IOI) this month signed a new 5-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) to extend their longstanding cooperation towards building the capacity of Caribbean fisheries and marine resource management professionals in ocean governance. The partnership between the CRFM and IOI started in 2004 and it has provided nearly 40 Caribbean nationals access to high-level, specialized training and capacity-building support at IOI-Dalhousie University every year since then. The renewed cooperation agreement, signed for the CRFM by Executive Director Milton Haughton and for IOI by Managing Director of its Malta headquarters, Antonella Vassallo, ensures that Caribbean nationals will continue to receive expert training on Ocean Governance: Policy, Law and Management at the Canada-based institute. Commenting on the agreement, the CRFM’s Executive Director, said: “We are very pleased to have concluded this new MoU with IOI, one of our key international development partners. The specialized training provided by IOI in marine policy, law and marine management is very important for the Small Island Developing States of the Caribbean that depend heavily on the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean for economic development.

Not only was he a class act within his own musical spectrum, but he taught many upcoming Belizean drummers how to play all different genres of music----from R&B to the Funk, and from reggae to calypso. Fuller who was versed in all forms of music, was also respected by American as well as Caribbean musicians who had come to play music in Belize in the 1970's and 80's. The legendary Belizean drummer who now has been living in Los Angeles for many years now, spoke with Belizean Legends about his brilliant career as a Belizean musician, and his life as a drummer for Belize's most populist band, the Lord Rhaburn Combo.
