Editorial: Belizeans gave UDP a chance: now they disrespect us
The Deputy Prime Minister, Hon. Patrick Faber, has a history of being honest about the dishonorable deeds of his party, the United Democratic Party (UDP), and he has passed off quite a few of these deeds as standard government practice. Faber is very much like our present Prime Minister, Hon. Dean Barrow, who infamously said when discussing a Vega scandal, “It is what it is”.
Recently, when DPM Faber was asked about the $40,000 write-off of a student loan that had been given to the son of a prominent colleague in his party, he actually, surprisingly, spoke out against it. His lapse into the realm of honor and decency, however, didn’t last a week. He told the media, on the return to his old self, that, well, he had to conform because he was a part of Cabinet.

We have to face facts: Belizeans, we are no match for those boys out there. Ashcroft, he’s got a clean sheet against us. He wap us so bad with the UHS, we couldn’t afford to pay. In a small victory, we reportedly got the court to agree that the wonder of compound interest would get cramped a little.

Alaia, A Resort Like Belize has Never Seen, Rises on Ambergris Caye

Mayan calendar cracked? Why space breakthrough could answer age-long ‘guide to survival’
The Mayans were a civilisation known for their architecture, mathematics and astronomical beliefs, who date back to as far as 2000BC, with many of their impressive constructions still standing in the jungles of southeast Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and western parts of Honduras. This advanced population used a 260-day calendar, known as the Tzolkin, which combines 20-day names with 13-day numbers to give each day a unique name, used to determine the time of religious and ceremonial events. In recent years, the calendar gained attention after claiming to have calculated the end of the world to occur on December 21, 2012, regarded to be the end-date of a 5,126-year-long cycle.
However, despite the globe still spinning, Amazon Prime’s “Mayan’s Revelations” claimed the ancient culture may have actually been more aware of nature than first believed.
Abuelo Lolmay, an expert on Mayan spirituality explained why the calendar was integral to his predecessors.
Clearwater aquarium saves baby manatee in Belize
A baby manatee that was stranded is being taken care of at a wildlife rehabilitation center in northern Belize after being rescued by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium's Rescue Team.
The male calf, that rescuers estimate to be between 2-3 weeks old, was found stranded and alone in the Belize River. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium was called and rescuer Jamal Galves arrived on the scene.
"We headed over to the river area where the community observed the little one splashing around," said Galves. "After taking some time to look around the area to ensure no other manatee was near that could possibly be the mother, we started our attempt to capture the calf." Galves continues, "I quickly grabbed the calf and raced it over to the rescue truck where it was placed and prepared for transport to the rehab center."
Using past extinctions to drive future conservation
Late Quaternary extinctions of large animals have historically been understood as global phenomena, resulting from climate fluctuations or quickly dispersing human populations. However, new technologies are enabling fine-grain analyses that shed new light on individual species' varied responses to changing local conditions, new competitors and predators, and other external drivers. According to an interdisciplinary team writing in BioScience, the newly gained knowledge may be of particular value in understanding animal populations' responses to contemporary threats, as well--in particular, those posed by climate change.
Concern still persists over long term drought in the Caribbean
