Editorial: This impotence on violent crime is destroying us
The UDP, which has been in office since 2008, and the PUP, which was in office from 1998 to 2008, are aware of the huge problem we face with violence in our country. These two political parties that have formed governments in Belize (they are jointly called PUDP) have at times, as the murder totals and murder rate for the country climbed, accused each other of being impotent on crime.
This finger pointing couldn’t go on forever, and the one that is presently in opposition, the PUP, has tacked to where they are calling for a bi-partisan approach to dealing with the problem. Disappointingly, their calls have fallen on deaf ears, thus far. It might be concluded that the UDP government is either delusional, thinks it has the problem under control, or it is overly political, will not admit that it needs help to contain it.
Henry V. Young, Sr., vs Neri Briceño
Long Distance Advisors Commentary
Why are there still Belizeans who do not believe in the ability to compete on an equal footing with the white establishment?
In a recent article in The Reporter by Mr. Neri Briceño, he chastised the Government for repossessing our utilities; emphasizing that in the past, governments were not able to manage these facilities. I am sure Mr. Briceño is aware of the disastrous trickle-down economics which was introduced to small economies when they were coerced to sell their utilities to foreign conglomerates. Well, Sir, can I inform you that Belize is one of the few countries which has recovered from that disaster.
Swing Bridge a damn disgrace – where are our priorities?
Eight years ago I complained in a letter to the Amandala newspaper about the deplorable condition the Swing Bridge was in. it is now time for me to provide an update.
Without getting into pros and cons of the aesthetics, historic or cultural value of the monstrosity which is being erected at the roundabout at the intersection of Craig Street and Marine Parade on Northside Belize City and not knowing the reason for this decision, I will take the liberty of assuming that it is intended to enhance our city’s touristic attributes.
Getting the sense
When I was a young man, een a mi prime, a time when there were moments when I thought that every gyal that I like mi like me, one Saturday evening I got on a bus to Dangriga and I sat down beside an extremely delightful-looking young lady and started to make conversation. I wasn’t drunk, I’d only had a couple or three beers, the last of which I had guzzled, glug, glug, glug, because the bus was about to leave and no respectable guy walks away from a half-full bottle of good suds.
Whoa, the conversation was barely underway when I burped. I thought nothing of it, but she did not feel the same way. The girl recoiled, squeezed herself up against the window beside her as far as she could, away from me. Drunk or sober, I know when I get rebuff, so I made a quick apology and relocated to another seat a distance away.
Musings by the Curious Non-Conformist
With all that’s happening in the news and around us today, I thought it would be an opportune time to share a piece by a good friend of mine from SpokenWord501, Mr. Kyraan Gabourel. Of course, the written piece will be great, but nothing compares to watching Kyo D’Assassin pump his soul, passion and unequivocal vigour as he brings his pieces to life.
The Growth of Black Consciousness in Belize 1914–1919
The Background to the Riot
II. White Racism and the Growth of Garveyism
In Belize itself a similar disillusionment had come to pass in the minds of many who had suffered the privations of war, but in the homeland the growth of a black consciousness was a more insidious process brought about by the spread of Garveyism and the appearance of an Establishment racism unknown since the days of slavery. That there had been a certain racial tension between the Colony’s black Creole Labour Force and its white and off-white elite of officials, merchants and land owners since Emancipation was probably undeniable – witness the Labourer’s Riot of 1894 and the racial outbursts of Governor Wilson – but these antagonisms appeared to have subsided, if not actually disappeared, during the prosperous years from 1900 to 1914.
Mary Hickey y la historia de Bowen
De los seis hijos a quienes Mary Hickey había legado esclavos en 1826, solo se sabe que tres sobrevivieron más allá de la infancia: Sophia Searle, Matilda Caroline y Richard Manfield. El Dr. Bowen murió en 1833, a la edad de 83 años. Ese año, las “señoritas Bowen, Matilda y Sophia”, sus hijas, llegaron de Londres para solicitar el patrimonio de “la finada Mary Hickey, su madre”. En diciembre de 1840, sin embargo , ambas murieron, una semana aparte. Richard, al igual que su padre, aparentemente formó una unión con una mujer libre de color, Mary Elizabeth Hume, una de las mayores propietarias de tierra en el norte.

Made in Belize: Souvenirs for a lasting memory!
Traveling has become second nature to me – I am fascinated with going to new places and learning about new cultures. With each new place I visit, a lifetime memory is created, and I try to hallmark it by bringing back that perfect souvenir which will forever remind me of those days away from home. However, souvenir shopping isn’t always easy – deciding which tangible vacation memory to take home can be a challenge. I focus on two words: authentic and unique, and try to bring a souvenir that fits that definition. Even when traveling within my home country, I always want something ‘Made in Belize.’

Scientists found a seaweed patch stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to Africa
Fertilizer runoff is likely fueling an explosion of seaweed in the Atlantic.
There’s a mass of seaweed in the Atlantic Ocean that last year, at its peak, was so large it stretched all the way from the Gulf of Mexico to West Africa. It’s the biggest bloom of seaweed ever recorded, according to a new paper published in Science. And it’s likely another example of how human activity is radically changing the surface of the planet.
The giant seaweed mass is both expansive and heavy, weighing a whopping 20 million tons last year. It’s comprised of a macroalgae species called sargassum, a brown seaweed that forms little bubbles that look a bit like grapes. Large volumes of it washing ashore can be a pain for beach tourism.
Another illegal plane found burning along border
Just 2 kilometers from the community of La Union in the town of Blue Creek, Belize, Belizean authorities found the charred remains of a Cessna plane.
According to first reports, it is estimated that the aircraft was intentionally burned. Authorities of the neighboring country of Belize say they presume the aircraft was used for the transfer of drugs from a Central American country to Mexican soil and onward into the United States.
Several hundred memebers of the National Guard have reinforced vigilance of the Ribera del Río Hondo, mainly in the area of La Unión to detect drug movements as well as illegal migrants.
Sargassum: The biggest seaweed bloom in the world
A floating mass of seaweed stretching from West Africa to the Gulf of Mexico is now the biggest seaweed bloom in the world, according to satellite observations.
The algal explosion in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea could signify a new normal, say US scientists.
Deforestation and fertiliser use are among the factors thought to be driving the growth.
The seaweed has inundated beaches, causing an environmental nuisance.
As of June 2018, the Great Atlantic Sargassum Belt, as scientists call it, extended 8,850km (5,500 miles) and was made up of over 20 million tonnes of biomass.
"The ocean's chemistry must have changed in order for the blooms to get so out of hand," said Dr Chuanmin Hu of the University of South Florida College of Marine Science, who led the study, published in Science.
