HUNAB KU
Hunab Ku is a Colonial period Yucatec Maya reduce term meaning "The One God". The earliest known publicly available written reference to the term "Hunab Ku" (which translates as "Sole God" or "Only God") appears in the 16th century Diccionario de Motul, where "Hunab-ku" is identified as "the only living and true god, also the greatest of the gods of the people of Yucatan. He had no form because they said that he could not be represented as he was incorporeal". The term also appears in the Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel . The term Hunab Ku is unknown in any pre-Conquest inscriptions in Maya writing. Hunab Ku was closely associated with an indigenous creator Itzamna, in an effort to make use of religious syncretism. Hunab Ku is believed to be a reduce term and Christian concept of "One God" .

On TreeTuesday, we highlight the Soursop tree (Annona muricata)!
Soursoup is native of tropical America and the Caribbean. The genus name Annona is from the Latin word anon, signifying “yearly harvest”, which refers to the fruit production habits of the various species in this genus. Other Annona species known in Belize are custard apple and cherimoya. This tree is small and evergreen, averaging 3-10 m in height. Mature trees have a spherical crown roughly 3.5 m in diameter. Trunks are straight with smooth, grey bark that becomes rougher with age. The tree can be further distinguished by its leathery leaves with a glossy top surface; large, yellow-green flowers with 6 fleshy, heart-shaped petals; and heart-shaped fruit covered with 6 mm long soft spines. Ripe fruits can weigh up to 7 kg.

Bus Owner Drowns On Ill-Fated Fishing Trip
He owns one of the largest bus lines in the north, but, yesterday evening, Rudy Morales was on the sea when he lost his life. The 41 year old bus owner's boat went under at the mouth of the New River - at the entrance to Corozal Bay. He and four friends and relatives were on a fishing trip. And tonight, we can confirm that his body was found this evening near Cerros - about a mile away from where the boat capsized. Our 7News team was in the area all day and Jules Vasquez has this report from when the search was ongoing - and his body had not yet been found:..

Corozal Businessman's Mysterious Murder
And, also in the Corozal District, a prominent businessman was murdered last night under very odd circumstances. Michael Arnold was shot to the head on a desolate road. Jules Vasquez has more:.. 58 year old Michael Arnold's Chrysler minivan was found here in the Baeza Layout last night at 10:40. This shattered glass - presumably from the vehicle window - marks the spot where his van was parked. He was reportedly in the passenger seat with two apparent gunshot wounds to the left side of his temple and one exit wound to the right side of the temple. A third shot is believed to have shattered the window.

Still No Sign Of Anisha, Family Fears Worst
The search continues tonight for 23 year old Anisha Young. The family says at this point it seems there is no hope in finding her alive. As we told you, she went missing early Sunday morning. She went to her staff Christmas party on Saturday night and then went to Sit and Sip with her boyfriend and three friends. They all left Sit and Sip in a taxi. The taxi dropped her friends off first and then took Young and her boyfriend home. No one has seen or heard from Young since then. This morning we caught up with her family and friends who were getting ready to search for Young. Here is more from Young's cousin. Sheree Salgado, Cousin: "According to her friends, three of her girlfriends were with her, they were dropped off first and then Anisha and her boyfriend, the taxi claims he dropped them home, yes they were the last to go home."

Mayor Tackles Pier One Problem
Last night, we told you about 20 year-old Asher Saunders who was murdered at Pier 1 Bar and Grill on Friday night. Best reports say that his murder resulted from a confrontation between two rival gangs. Police officers provide security at Pier 1, but, that still did not prevent a gunman from shooting Saunders in the head, in the middle of the club. It sent club patrons and BTL park-goers scrambling in a wave of panic. This incident has brought public heat on the management of Pier 1 with many in the public demanding that action be taken against the Club for the sake of public safety. Of course, that's because the night club adjoins BTL Park, and critics say its presence in this public space is making the park unsafe for families and children.

Robber Shoots Truck Driver, Comes Under Police Fire
This afternoon there was a commotion in the city when a water truck was robbed on Holy Emmanuel Street in the Gungulung area. Two people were in the truck, the driver and a sideman. The sideman got out to deliver ice - and the driver got jacked. But the suspect wasn't content with just that and he shot the driver in the leg - shattering the window on the passenger side. Fortunately, the sideman wasn't sitting there - he was making a delivery. Police set chase after the gunman with a vengeance and much firepower - and tracked him down all the way to Pen Road extension - where there was an explosive exchange of gunfire. This video captures the frightening report of gunshots - from the GSU:

Light Bill Gwen Up? If BEL Has Its Way
Your power company, BEL has asked the Public Utilities Commission to increase electricity rates. The company notified the PUC yesterday, that there has been significant increases in the cost of power since May 2018. They are proposing that the mean electricity rates be increased from 39.3 cents per kilowatt hour to 41.5 cents per kilowatt hour from January 1st, 2019 to June 30th, 2019. The company notes that since May higher prices from Mexico and below average production of the local hydro plans resulted in an increase in the cost of power purchased from suppliers. BEL says that it was able to use its strong financial position to temporarily absorb the 18.9 million dollar increase in costs. They note that as per PUC regulations, BEL is required to recover this increase through a rate adjustment.

Lady Justice & Man Justice
Addressing gender based violence in the social sphere through campaigns, policies and workshops is only one part of the process, dealing with such cases at court is also very important. And the Belize Judiciary along with UN Women and the Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers want to ensure that when such cases go to court that magistrates and judges fairly and justly arbitrate the matter regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation, race, or economic status. Today the team launched what's called Justice through a Gender Lens: Gender Equality Protocol for Judicial Officers. There will be a series of training's for these judicial officers to promote this protocol. Here is more from the launch. Hon. Kenneth Benjamin, Belize's Chief Justice†"A good starting point is a discussion on gender equality. We should turn to the first preamble that appears in our constitution and it affirms the dignity of the human person and the equal and unalienable rights with which all persons of the human family are endowed by their creator."

Opposition Diaspora Bill Goes To House
Tomorrow will see the last House Meeting of the year. But It's going to be the first sitting at which PUP Area Rep. Kareem Musa is going to push for his private member's bill. As we've told you, he is hoping to get bi-partisan support to amend the Representation of the People's Act, which would allow for Belizeans living abroad to vote in the Referendum on the ICJ, which is scheduled for April 10th, 2019. He's already done all the necessary preparations for the bill, and he formally submitted it yesterday to National Assembly Clerk Eddie Webster. But, there is a potential hurdle that it must pass, for it to even be tabled tomorrow in the House of Representatives. He explained it to the press today, and he appealed to the Government at least allow the conversation to take place on the national stage:

AG Doubtful About Diaspora Bill
We also got a chance to ask the Attorney General about Musa's Private Members Bill. He's the former Speaker of the House, with knowledge of the parliamentary procedure required. And, if Parliament were to pass the bill, he would play an integral role in its implementation. He told us that from his brief look at Musa's proposed amendment, there appears to be some logistics which he thinks aren't well thought out. Here's how he explained why:

Cops Say Kyle Came At Them
Tonight, 27 year-old Kyle Chaplin, a resident of Mayflower Street in Belize City, is at the Belize Central Prison after he was taken to court for firing a weapon at police officers. 4 officers, a corporal and 3 constables, say that on Sunday, December 9th, they went through an alley near Mayflower Street, responding to reports of shots being fired. The cops say that they saw a man running away from them, and they pursued him. He temporarily gave them the slip, but according to the cops, this same man emerged a short while later, and he had a weapon in his hand. The cops say that this man fired 4 shots at them. All missed. They returned fire, and again, this assailant was able to evade them.

Alleged Ladyville Rapist To Court
Last night, we told you about 31 year-old Adam Meighan, the resident of Ladyville who police charged for raping a 49 year-old American woman in the village. Tonight, he's at the Belize Central Prison after being taken to Magistrate's Court today. He was arraigned before Magistrate Albert Hoare on 1 count of rape, and 1 count of theft. Since rape is an indictable offense, no plea was taken, and he was remanded to Prison until February 12th, 2019. The victim reported to police that she left her home in her pick-up truck when she saw Meighan walking toward her with a rusty machete in his hand. She said that she stopped her vehicle, and got out leaving the driver's side open. She wanted to ensure that the vehicle could get pass a muddy part of the road she was driving on.

Mercy! Another Machete Maim
Last night we told you about the man from St. Margaret's Village who was maimed after a bar brawl. His hand was severed from the forearm down. Well, last night in the neighboring village of Armenia, 37 year old Lucio Ruiz got it even worse, his entire arm was severed by a machete, and he got chopped all over the body. Investigations revealed that a male person attacked him while he was asleep in a hammock under his house. Police have a suspect who they are seeking.

Double Murderer "Dangalang"ť Begs Court For Mercy
25 year-old Ernest "Dangalang" Thurton Jr has been on remand for 3 months awaiting a sentence for a double murder conviction. Tonight, he's back at the Belize Central Prison while he waits for Justice Adolph Lucas to decide what that sentence will be. On September 12th, Justice Lucas found him guilty in a trial without jury of the murders of Frank James and Robert Young. At today's mitigation hearing, Crown Counsel Portia Ferguson read the statement of the common-law wife of Frank James. She said that he was a hardworking man, and a good husband. She said that her health has deteriorated since her loss. The prosecutor also read the statement of Robert Young's sister, who said that his death has severely affected her and her family, and they are now robbed of their peace of mind.

Brackett Talking About The ICJ
Students from St. Catherine's Academy had their own ICJ referendum education forum today. The school invited activist Geovanni Brackett and his team to talk about why Belize should not go to the ICJ. The students seemed quite engaged in the presentation. Kalima Enriquez, Head of Humanities Dept. SCA: "What we are doing is that we are trying to present enough information about the ICJ whether the Guatemala dispute referendum to students and what we did is we presented an objective view last week so we invited members of the ICJ referendum unit and today we had a no argument and we are planning for a strong yes argument in the future, then on January 18th we are going to have student doing a debate about whether they should go to ICJ or not and we are going to have a mock election where we will try to model it exactly how the adults will be voting."

Fired For Bogus Birth Certificate
Back in July 2016, the beheading murder of Pastor Lewellyn Lucas made headline news, and William Danny Mason was later charged as the supposed murder mastermind in this heinous crime. You may also remember that part of the scandal of his connection with persons in high places was a fraudulent birth certificate. He had several assumed identities, but the authorities uncovered a fake Belizean Birth Certificate which claimed that Mason was born in Crooked Tree Village to parents James Mason, a farmer from Cooked Tree, and his common-law wife. From as far back as that time, the Prime Minister was alluding to internal investigations which indicated that 4 public officers from the Vital Statistics Unit aided in the production of this fraudulent document.

The UNCAC Audit Is In
Peyrefitte was far more expansive on the latest developments in the Government's push to implement the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. For the past few months, we've been closely following the step-by-step process that AG Peyrefitte has been following to ensure that Belize is compliant with all the mechanisms necessary to bring the anti-corruption convention into effect. Well, the international experts have inspected the country's current legislation, and in a 5,000 word executive summary, they've outlined all the gaps, and amendments they think are necessary for effective implementation. We asked the AG about that report, and he says while significant progress has been made, there still a ways to go:

The Punto Final On A Woman's Period
Period: we aren't talking about the punctuation mark, we are talking about Aunt Flo, Crimson Tide, The Big Red - Yup, that time of the month. It is not a topic openly spoken about especially around men but UNICEF along with it's partners want to bring everyone into the discussion thorough the first ever Menstrual Hygiene Management Initiative. The coordinating team conducted a year-long survey at various schools to find out how girls are dealing with their periods and also to see if boys are also learning about the cycle. It was an interesting study and the results show that there is need for more education and awareness among adolescents and increased access to basic sanitary products for girls such as pads and tampons. Here is more from the launch.

PUP Blasts BEL
Earlier on we told you about BEL's request for an increase in electricity rates. Well, the PUP says it is a dose of Christmas Cheer, UDP style. Somehow already concluding that this rate increase is already a done deal, the PUP notes, quote, "months ago, BEL had requested an increase of 7.1% in the cost per kilowatt hour, and the PUC approved a 6.24% increase which should have been in effect for 2 years. Now, just five months after, BEL is requesting another increase." End quote.

Fin Sec says government will not pay CCJ-ordered refund of GST to Gegg companies
Cruise Solution and Discovery Expedition, tour companies owned by Belizean David Gegg, have had a protracted legal battle with the General Sales Tax (GST) Department that ended up at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ). On Friday, October 12, 2018, a panel of CCJ justices ruled that the GST Department must refund Cruise Solution and Discovery Expedition the GST taxes those companies paid, because the services they provided to cruise passengers were categorized, for tax purposes, as zero-rated.

Editorial: Did our leaders blink in 1981? Will Belizeans in 2019?
As the discussions and debates pick up more momentum towards the referendum date of April 10, 2019, it has been remarked by some vocal advocates of the “No” position that they are not being given equal status in the publicly sponsored presentations, so that the “Yes” advocates are having more prominence and opportunity to address the citizenry. It has been mentioned that on one occasion the “No” person was sandwiched between two individuals promoting the “Yes” argument. In court, both sides are given equal opportunity to present their case – the prosecution and the defence. In the House of Representatives, both the government and the “Queen’s Loyal Opposition” are given their say; although the majority side always gets its way. But the people can listen and make up their own minds; and eventually they get their chance to have THEIR WAY on the next election date.

Clear cut YES to ICJ victory in PG
Richard Bradley, who represented the NO side in Punta Gorda on Saturday night, said that Ambassador Rosado lied (a very hostile word) when he said, in response to a question about our not keeping the border line between us and Guatemala clean, that it isn’t done because Guatemala doesn’t recognize our western border. Ambassador Rosado said that created a little difficulty because it should be a joint thing. Bradley said that Rosado lied. Bradley said that the British used to keep the border line clean. What Richard Bradley said was the truth, but he was talking apples and Rosado was talking oranges.

During the black consciousness awakening period that swept through the colonial society of British Honduras in the late 1960’s to early 1970’s, when the cultural group the United Black Association for Development (UBAD) was promoting its “black is beautiful” cultural revolution, there were no difficulties finding beautiful sisters to participate in UBAD’s “Miss Afro Honduras” beauty pageant, which was the organization’s answer to the Queen of the Bay and the Miss Belize pageants, which were usually held. The first winner of the first Miss Afro Honduras pageant was Sheldon Vasquez.

In absence of his body, Milo Paz’s family unable to find closure

PAST GOVERNMENTS STOLE OPPORTUNITIES
BY: Nefreterry Marin. The blatant corruption Belize has suffered since Independence has put our economic development, ethical values and justice at very high risk and has undermined our entire democratic process. The poor and the working class are the ones at the bottom of the destabilized, crumbling pyramid economy, created by corrupt politicians. It is they who suffer the harmful daily effects of political corruption. It is they who we must now protect.

Behind the scenes of an island icon: PepperOni’s
We got to live our dream when we went behind the scenes and into the hallowed kitchen of an island icon: PepperOni’s Pizza. Established in 2001, PepperOni’s has been the island’s go-to pizza place ever since, offering amazing cheesy, meaty, saucy, bready goodness to the masses. From its humble beginnings inside a trailer to its expanded location featuring outdoor seating (both covered and uncovered), and a nice big kitchen, PepperOni’s has evolved, but one thing that has not changed is its delicious recipe!

Stuff that Washes Up on the Beaches of Ambergris Caye
Take a walk up the beach on Ambergris Caye and you are bound to find a few things. A tiny shell, a piece of drift wood, a plastic bottle or…maybe a cool looking piece of coral. But here are some of the more regular visitors on your shores. Pumice – You can almost always find a scrap or two of this floating rock – but there are certain times when it is all over the beach. Since pumice is a volcanic rock – and there are no volcanoes in Belize – where is it coming from? The short answer is…a volcano. And since it floats, it could be coming from anywhere around the world – probably volcanoes deep below the sea. But here is a picture of the volcanic islands/active volcanoes of the Caribbean… Sea beans: Also called drift seeds. These are my new sea-obsession. They are seeds from around the world that can float short or long distances. The most famous is the coconut. Here is a website devoted to all things seabean.

A Brief History About Corozal's Past
The Central Plaza of Corozal Town has been used for various activities and events since the town was founded in 1849. Social, cultural, sporting events and even a brief occupation in 1870 by Marcus Canul, General of the Ecaiche Maya, have made space a gathering place for Corozalenos'. In 1955 Hurricane Janet dramatically transformed the Central Plaza. Longboard buildings called "barracks" were built to house the homeless while Mayor Felipe Santiago Ricalde had the daunting task of rebuilding the town. In 1965 Honourable Santiago Ricalde inaugurated the Corozal Town Central Park; he honored the fallen doctors and nurses with a plaque inside the park's fountain. The fountain was originally donated by the Mexican Government to the people of Belize City just before Hurricane Hattie.
