Ministry of Health Confirms Quality Generic Medications
As part of its ongoing initiatives to provide quality healthcare medications, the Ministry of Health sent five different generic medications to the Caribbean Regional Public Health Agency’s (CARPHA) Drug Testing Laboratory, which is CARICOM’s regional reference laboratory for testing. The medications range from antibiotics to antidiabetic drugs that were sampled from the public sector. All five medications have passed the quality tests performed as per international standards. This means that these generic medications are of confirmed quality.

Children And Early Village Life In San Pedro
The daily life of children in the village in the 1950's began early at six in the morning. Boys had to get water out of the well and fill the containers for mom's laundry. Girls swept the house and made the beds or hammocks. When there was fresh coconut husks that were used as fuel for cooking, the boys also had to put them out in the sun to dry. This was to cut down on the smoke at mom's fogon (fire hearth). By seven a.m. everyone had tea “breakfast” which generally consisted of friend fish, beans and fresh flour tortillas, Johnny cakes or fry jacks. By 7:30a.m. all children headed to school which called in at eight. This gave them some time to play games in the schoolyard or on the beach by the Central park in this case. Lunch time was a quick rush home for some more fried fish with rice and beans and fried plantains with a glass of well water. At school children had one exercise book each and the few textbooks like reading, child's Bible History, were given free of cost to the students. All other subjects like mathematics, civics, science, spelling, English, came from the teachers' notes or from their heads.

Compol Exasperated With Spate of Crime, Says Only So Much Cops Can Do
It's been a disastrous week for law and order, and when Commissioner of Police Chester Williams returned to the country this evening, he went directly into a meeting with his senior crime investigators. His priority? The Allyson Major Jr police killing - and the night of killing that rocked Belize City on Wednesday. Speaking about those three hours, which saw three men, aged 19 - 53 killed in the city - an exasperated COMPOL said there is only so much the police can do:

"Who Raised These Monsters?" The COMPOL Kids Curfew, Now!
And to do more, the COMPOL is instituting a youth curfew for the city with almost immediate effect. Effective tomorrow at 6:00, no one under the age of 18 can be on the street after 6:00 pm. Sounds severe, but the COMPOL is clearly under pressure - and speaking fo the parents of gang members - he asked bluntly: "who raised these monsters?" Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: "And instead of blaming the police, we need`to begin to look at those persons who raised these monsters and unleashed them on the streets. There needs to be stricter rules when it comes to parenting..."

Gangsters? COMPOL: Lock em Up For Life By Constitutional Decree
And from that quite extreme curfew declaration, the Commissioner went after gangs. He said gang members should be locked up for life!: Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: "Enough is enough. We cannot continue to have gang members live freely and comfortable among us and they only live free and comfortable among us because we allow them to. So we have to take a hand line when it comes to dealing with them. I would want to see we make it or we put it in our constitution that it is wrong and illegal to be a gang and once you are a gang you must be locked up for life - put it in the constitution. Gang members must feel that they are not welcomed among us."

Compol Says Corporal Who Pulled Trigger on Aly Major Will Have to Face Consequences
And while the COMPOL is holding a very hardline on gangs, he started out the press briefing on a far more conciliatory note. He spoke about the Allyson Major Jr shooting. As has been widely reported, the 36 year old was shot in the head by police as he tried to escape a pursing patrol. The police shot him in the head as he tried to race over the swing bridge. Major died the following day from his injuries. Today the commissioner expressed condolences and gave his assurance that the investigation will be thorough and transparent:

Cops Reinforcing Rules of Engagement
So, clearly, the COMPOL has confirmed that the use of lethal force in that situation was wrong. It cost a man his life, left his children fatherless, and his parents without their only son. But what will be done to prevent a recurrence? The COMPOL says they are reinforcing to police the rules of engagement:... Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: "We do have a use of force policy and I will task the legal advisor to ensure that he goes around and train officers in terms of that policy, because as you say there may be a need for us to ensure that we don't only have the policy, but that officers are aware of the content of that policy as well."

PUP Says Sanctuary Bay Land Scam Will Topple Barrow Admin.
Last week on the news you heard all about the Sanctuary Bay land scam - as Prime Minister Barrow had to defend himself and his administration against a broadside from the Federal Trade Commission. That was contained in a legal filing lodged on June 10th in a US Court - by the FTC. It was nothing nice and made all kinds of allegations and suggestions against the PM, members of his government and local regulators. Turns out many of the allegation were manifestly untrue and designed strictly to convince a US judge not to send the case to Belize.

PM Barrow Attorney Demands PUP Media Apology
And, while Barrow and Williams all warned the media that, quote, "any rebroadcast, republication or relating of this informationmay subject you to civl action." The PUP radio and tv station also got one of those letters - except their one demands an apology for what they already broadcast on the air on July 10th. So, will the PUP apologize? The leader of the opposition says, we'll see you in court:..

PUP Says Former FIU Director Failed
We note that cases of libel by political media organs are almost always settled out of court. But that won't stop the PUP from criticizing the performance of the former director of the FIU Joy Grant. FoUr days before she left the office in 2016, she was advised by the Governor of the Central Bank of the looming scam. The PUP says she shares the blame:... Hon. John Briceno, PUP Leader: "From 2016, then Central Bank Governor Glen Ysaguirre put in writing to the director of FIU Joy Grant that "there was strong evidence of massive fraud and money laundering occurring through this project..."

Jail For Teenaged Killer Who Killed Teenager
Police have made a swift arrest for one of the 3 killing which happened between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m on Wednesday. 19-year-old Jovi Hernandez is on remand at the Belize Central Prison, after being taken to court for the manslaughter of the 19-year-old Honduran immigrant, Nixon Matapinto. He was arraigned before Senior Magistrate Tricia Pitts-Anderson. She remanded him into custody until September 19th, his next court date.

Veteran Educator Dies on Road, Heart Attack, Not Crash Says Family
Tonight, the family of 57-year-old Rodrick Elijio, a resident of Kraal Road in Belize City, is mourning his passing, after he died early this morning on the Philip Goldson Highway. Police are treating it as a fatal traffic accident, but his family tells us that he most likely died from a heart attack while he was driving. Police say that at around 2:25 a.m., they responded to a traffic accident at mile 21 and a half on the highway, in Gardenia Village. When they arrived they found an orange Nisan Frontier pickup truck on the right shoulder of the road in the direction of Belize City. It was under a tree, and it also had minor damage to its front portion.

Fire in Village Leaves 9 Homeless
Tonight, a family of 9 from the Another World area of Roaring Creek Village in the Cayo District, is homeless. That's after their home was completely destroyed by fire yesterday evening. The homeowner, 44-year-old Denise Arnold, was at work at around 4 p.m., when she received word that her brand-new house had caught fire. It's a devastating blow for Arnold, who recently received this home as a gift from family in the United States. She told our colleagues from Plus TV News that she and her family lost everything in the fire:

Alleged Weed Traffickers Remanded
Last night, we showed you the comments from Assistant Police Commissioner Marco Vidal, who discussed Tuesday's big drug bust in Belize City, where police came up on 58 pounds of high grade marijuana and over 12 thousand dollars in cash at a stash house. Well, the common-law couple who lives at that house is in jail tonight. As we told you, they are 34 year-old Lenroy Longsworth, and 21 year-old Kenisha Beaton. They were arraigned today before Magistrate Emerson Banner on the charge of drug trafficking. They both pleaded not guilty to the offense, but the Magistrate informed them that due to the quantity of the drugs, he could not offer them bail. As a result, they were remanded to the Belize Central Prison until September 24th, their next court date.

Another Big Weed Shipment Busted
And in Corozal this morning, a special branch operation turned up another sizable marijuana bust. They found 32 pounds compressed marijuana inside this Ford Explorer coming out of Buena Vista village. The vehicle was occupied by 3 Belize City residents - two males and a female - who, police believe, brought the weed from Mexico. We'll have their names when they are charged for the 14.2 kilos.

Cops Plan to Defuse Sandhill Gang Beef
And, finally tonight, Commissioner Chester Williams commented on the situation in Sandhill. Gang rivalry in that small rural village has accounted for the death of one young man and the shooting of another. He says police have been directed to go in there and clean it up:..

Four Belize Tours You Have To Try In 2020
Belize cave tubing tours are one of the top five activities for adventure-seeking visitors. In antiquity, caves were valued sources of shelter and important ritual spaces. The ancient Maya of Belize believed that caves were portals to the Underworld and to the gods that ruled there. These formations were also linked to fertility, used as pilgrimage sites, and were treated as places of ritual transformation and rebirth. To better understand the fascinating history and the sacred landscape and symbols of the ancient Maya, we’ve put together a list of the top four Belize caves you should visit while vacationing with us.

8 Adventurous Things To Do In Belize
Travel Awaits has a nice article about many of the adventurous excursions found around Belize, and of course, Cayo sights make up the majority of the list. They highlight Caracol and Actun Tunichil Muknal, along with Mountain Pine Ridge and the Garcia Sisters. Definitely worth a read. "Atop a plateau near the Guatemalan border rest the ruins of a city that was once the political powerhouse of the ancient Maya civilization. Dubbed Caracol, the nearly 25,000-acre archaeological site is known for its vast agricultural field system and sophisticated city planning. But despite how remarkable it is, Caracol offers visitors lots of freedom to wander around the site on their own. You can even climb the Sky Palace -- the tallest man-made structure in Belize. The site only receives about 10,000 visitors a year, so you won’t have to worry about running into crowds at this curious place. To get to Caracol, rent a car and make your way to the Chiquibul Forest Reserve in the Cayo District. Or, take the easy route and set up a guided tour with your hotel."

Now that Barry has come and gone, what's in store for the next few weeks?
Now that Barry, the first hurricane to make U.S. landfall this year, has come and mostly gone, what's in store for the next few weeks? Not too much, if the jet stream does what it usually does this time of year. Each year, from around July 1 to mid-August, coastal states get a short window to catch their breaths as tropical activity goes into a quiet period. Those states can thank a variety of factors for these tropical season doldrums. Storms form from two main ingredients: Tropical waves moving across the Atlantic and interactions between jet streams and the tropics.

UNESCO calls for concerted action to strengthen the resilience of coral reefs
As a side event of the meeting of the World Heritage Committee (Baku from 1 to 10 July), UNESCO and its partners met on 5 July to take stock of the initiative launched in October 2018 to strengthen coral reef adaptation to climate change. “Coral reefs are the major witnesses of climate change,” said UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay. “The health of our planet and the future of our humanity can be seen today in the poor condition of these reefs. Swift action is needed to reverse the trend and limit the rise in temperatures. Such action can only be undertaken on a global scale, and UNESCO presents the most appropriate platform to accelerate this effort.”
