CCCCC & CBU Sign Cooperation Agreement
The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC- 5 Cs) and the Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that aims to improve the sharing of information about and coverage of climate change issues across regional media markets, beginning with the CBU 49th Annual General Assembly scheduled for Kingston, Jamaica from August 13-15, 2018. The MOU was signed in Barbados by 5Cs Chairman Dr. Leonard Nurse, on behalf of Executive Director Dr. Kenrick Leslie and CBU’s Secretary General Ms. Sonia Gill. The MOU aims to strengthen the Centre’s partnership with regional media and create synergies at senior levels, as it carries out its mandate to provide effective solutions and projects to combat climate change in the region. This partnership is even more critical, after the 2017 Hurricane Season, as it provides
Wolfe’s Woofer: Weird Jobs
“I worked in a place even weirder than that when I was in the U.S.” Marlon said. “I was a bartender in Miami at a place called The Working Man’s Bar.”
“Tell us about it,” I said.
“First off, me and the bartender was the only two people there from two o’clock when the bar opened until about five o’clock. Finally, I asked the bartender what was going on.”
“The bartender said, ‘It’s slow now but in thirty minutes that noisy factory across the street is going to shut down. This place is going to fill up with thirsty people. Oh, by the way, the factory only hires deaf people and they speak sign language.’”
Caribbean Fisheries Forum calls region to action
At its recent annual meeting in Montserrat, the Caribbean Fisheries Forum framed a set of recommendations that will be submitted to regional policy-makers at the 12th Meeting of the Ministerial Council of the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM), slated for 18 May 2018 in Montserrat.
The Forum’s recommendations include measures for boosting production in the fisheries and aquaculture sector, risk insurance for fisheries, ongoing challenges to fisheries subsidies, gender mainstreaming, and the development of critical fishery management plans.
Doctor Love: Party of None
Dear Doctor Love,
I invited my friend and her husband for dinner and drinks to say thank you for bringing me some items from the States. A few days before, she called to say that their neighbors were arriving and asked if they could invite them as well. I agreed even though I am not well acquainted with the neighbors.
I ran into the wife of the second couple the day before the dinner party and she informed me that they had another couple and their teen daughter visiting and I should know there would be five of them. I apologized and told her that I was prepared for six people and simply did not have room for a party of nine. She then spoke with my friend who called me that evening to tell me they would not be coming either.

Saturday Morning Beach Walk In San Pedro Town
My life has changed in so many ways since I permanently moved to Ambergris Caye 10 years and 360 days ago.
But one change that I sometimes regret is getting a golf cart. I mean, it’s not exactly my golf cart, it’s my boyfriend’s. And we really do need it. We live 7 miles north of town and drive in for errands and shopping for us and for our camp (Cayo Frances Farm & Fly) pretty much every day.
But with the constant use of a golf cart, I do far less walking. And I do very little walking on the beach.
WHAT?!????? Wait…what? I hear you asking. I hear you JUDGING.
You live in Belize and you hardly walk on the beach?
Yesterday – I parked the golf cart a bit north of town and I walked to the water taxi. And while it was hot and muggy, the beach at the center of town was looking beautiful. And in just about 10 minutes, I snapped TONS of pictures. Here are a few.
Note to self: walk on the beach more often. From north to south. I was loving all the tall lanky coconut palms on the walk so it explains all the vertical photos.
5 Budget Destinations Where You Can Learn to Scuba Dive
If you love swimming in the sea and observing ocean wildlife, scuba diving is for you. Once you learn to scuba dive, you can explore the depths of the ocean and see much more than you would during your average snorkeling session.
In many U.S. cities, you can get certified by local instructors. That would certainly save you on travel costs, but it can be much more fun to learn to dive in a beautiful, warm destination.
Why not combine your certification course with a vacation? It doesn't have to be expensive. In many locations, the PADI Open Water certification course is the same price or even cheaper than the same course in the U.S., and you can take it while staying in affordable accommodations.
Belize is a Central American country known for its amazing junglelike scenery and unique diving opportunities. Here, you can dive a section of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef system known as the Belize Barrier Reef. The highlight for many people is the renowned Blue Hole — a giant sinkhole that has become one of the world's most famous dive sites.
