Belize invited to Mexico’s Pro Agro-Innovation Expo
Belizean agricultural entrepreneurs, businesspeople, farmers, and agro-processors have been invited to participate in the upcoming Pro Agro-Innovation Expo, which Mexico's National Chamber of Commerce, Services and Tourism (CANACO-SERVYTUR) will host at the Chetumal City Convention Center on October 23rd through the 25th. CANACO-SERVYTUR Vice President of Border Trade Thelmo Manuel Rejon Montalvo encouraged the food producers and manufacturers to bring their products to the expo, as chefs from a number of hotels would be attending the Expo, and it will be the ideal opportunity to introduce them to the quality of Belizean sauces, chocolate, and other processed food products.

Monitoring the Possibility for Development of a Tropical System Close to Belize
The National Meteorological Services of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) are in discussion regarding ongoing computer models which are predicting that a tropical system could develop within our region, close to Belize somewhere near to Honduras/Nicaragua by the weekend or very early next week. The models will be better able to predict the possibility for the development of a tropical system and a projected path between today and the upcoming days. The Met Office will be consulting with the National Hurricane Centre and will back brief NEMO today.

Caye Caulker Electrification Project to receive a $6.8 US million Loan
On Friday, October 4th, during the Sitting of the House of Representatives a $6.8 US million loan motion was presented for Caye Caulker Electrification Project. The loan, offered by the Caribbean Development Bank, is earmarked to assist Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) in reducing emissions and improve the reliability of the supply of electricity to Caye Caulker, with increased capacity to meet the projected demand. The project consists of connecting Caye Caulker to the BEL national electricity grid, which includes a submarine cable feasibility study, land acquisition, infrastructure works, among others. The Government of Belize will guarantee the loan.

Coral tissue loss disease threatens Belize’s Barrier Reef
To find a solution and work out a strategic plan, Belize's foremost marine biologists and researchers gathered with their counterparts of the three other countries which host parts of the 1,000 kilometer long Meso-American Reef (MAR), for the second biennial meeting of the Reef Restoration Network for the MAR region, at the Best Western Biltmore Plaza Hotel in Belize City from Tuesday October 8th to Thursday October 10th. Foremost on the agenda was the development of a MAR regional plan for reef restoration, encouraging complementary efforts to target resources needed to put the plan into effect. The stony coral tissue loss disease first appeared in Florida USA in 2014 and is lethal to over 20 different species of coral, particularly the pillar, star and starlet, and brain corals.

Precautionary Notice from NEMO: Tropical System Possible in Region
MONITORING THE POSSIBILITY FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A TROPICAL SYSTEM CLOSE TO BELIZE. The National Meteorological Services of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) are in discussion regarding ongoing computer models which are predicting that a tropical system could develop within our region, close to Belize somewhere near to Honduras/Nicaragua by the weekend or very early next week.

The Trial and Execution of Colonel Despard For High Treason
It is a curious coincidence that the trial of "Colonel" Lynch for high treason should have taken place on the centenary, almost to the day, of the trial of another colonel, without the inverted commas, however, on the same charge. The case of Colonel Despard, whose trial in February, 1803, created a great sensation, formed the last instance of a man of good birth being charged with this offence against the State. Despard was a man of respectable Irish ancestry. Born in 1750, he had a distinguished military career, first in the 50th and 79th Regiments, and subsequently as Chief Engineer in several over-sea expeditions, notably that to San Juan in 1779. At the close of the latter he was appointed Governor of British Honduras, and this proved the beginning of his troubles.

MAYA MOPAN: The Mopan Maya are mostly found in the Toledo District . Many Mopan Maya still live traditionally. MAYA Q'EQCHI': The Q'eqchi' Maya also spelled as K'ekchi' live more traditionally and are mostly found in the Toledo District .

Belize attends High-Level Segment on Statelessness and 70th Session of the Executive Commission of the High Commissioner’s Programme
Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ambassador Patrick Andrews headed Belize’s delegation to the High-Level Segment on Statelessness (HLS) and the 70th Session of the Executive Commission (ExCom) of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Programme. The events are being held from the 7th to 11th October 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland. The HLS marks the midpoint of the UNHCR’s #IBelong campaign to end statelessness by 2024. Belize is party to both international conventions on statelessness and was recognised during a HLS side event for acceding to the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness in 2015. Furthermore, Belize submitted concrete pledges on actions to be taken within its jurisdiction to address statelessness.

Foreign Minister Suffers 300,000 Dollar Setback In the Supreme Court
Over 300 thousand dollars, that's the award in damages that the Supreme Court has ordered Foreign Affairs Minister Wilfred Elrington to pay his former business partners from the real estate company, Progresso Heights Limited. Justice  Courtney Abel has found that he had no valid reason for stopping the company's directors from conducting business in Belize. And as a result, he must compensate them for the loss in revenue his actions caused. By now viewers will be very familiar with this dispute. Elrington is a shareholder in the Progresso Heights Limited, which is run by the American father and son, Lawrence and Adam Schneider. Many years ago, Elrington was their business partner and the company's attorney, but, they had a major falling out sometime in 2009.

US Scientists Assess New River
A group of American scientists are in Belize to conduct a detailed assessment on the pollution in the New River.  As has been widely reported, the river, which runs from the eastern edge of the Orange Walk District all the way to the Corozal Bay, is in the worst condition in memory.  It caught national attention as early as August after its drought aggravated the pollution. So, the department of the environment and the worried residents who live near it are doing all they can to start reversing the pollution. That is expected to take years, but there is a need for a clear scientific picture to be captured of the New River so that informed decisions can be taken about remedial measures.

NEMO Watching Low Pressure Area Off CA Coast
NEMO has sent out what it calls a precautionary notice for a weather system that bears watching.   A broad area of low pressure is hovering right now off the coast  of Nicaragua and Honduras and models predict that it could develop within our region, by the weekend or very early next week. The national hurricane center in Miami says "some development is possible if the low remains over water while moving near the coasts of Honduras, Guatemala, and Belize." And even though the national hurricane center only gives it a 20% chance of developing into a system, NEMO says, quote, "at this juncture based on what the models are forecasting (we) prefer to err on the side of caution.

Belmopan Roadside Lots Under Scrutiny
Commissioner of Lands Wilbur Vallejos says there's nothing unusual about a land transaction in Belmopan that's raised some eyebrows.   34 lots along Phillip Goldson Boulevard - a few of them right in front of the Lands Department - have been issued on the road reserve. Vallejos says the area was de-reserved based on the recommendation from the city council on the advice of its technocrats and engineers. He says the council decided that the area will not be used for any further expansion and they decided to convert it into lots.

Baby Steps Are Huge For Kyron
For 6 weeks now, 11-year-old Kyron Green has been at Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia. The doctors there have been working with him and his mother, Marsha Belisle, in a major effort at recovery. They're trying to help him improve his quality of life, and maybe even walk again after his near-fatal shooting back in May.  You'll remember that Kyron was innocently shot while he was on an errand for his mother. The gunman was aiming at his adult target, but Kyron was injured by a stray bullet, which ended up lodged in his cervical vertebrae. 

Green Card Lottery Open For Belize
The US Diversity Immigrant Visa Program opened last week, and if you're interested, you have less than a month to apply. The program will give 55,000 foreign nationals and their families from around the world a chance to legally immigrate to the United States, green card in hand.  Of course, as many as 20 million people applied last time, so don't get your hopes too high.   But, the application is free and - as the name implies - it's a lottery, and number can play;  once you have a passport and a high school diploma, you're eligible.  We found out more today from the Embassy's Consular Officer when we spoke to him at the Biltmore:..

World Mental Health Day Focusses On Rising Caribbean Suicide Rate
Today was observed as World Mental Health Day under the theme Mental Health Promotion & suicide prevention. The Ministry of Health, PAHO, and the Belize Mental Health Association hosted an event at the Bliss Center for several Belize city high schools. The event's overall objective: raising awareness of mental health issues in Belize and mobilizing efforts in support of suicide prevention. We stopped by to hear from the professionals about this very real problem that's rarely, if ever, openly discussed. Cherisse Halsall reports:

Driving Home The Pain of Homelessness
Today is also recognized as World Homeless Day. The Welcome Resource Center caters to homeless persons, those with mental illness and the elderly. The center has several events planned for their participants, but one main activity is the "Sleep It Out" initiative that raises funds for the center. The event will be held on Saturday night into Sunday morning. The center's administrator told us more about it today: Joyce Ellis - Administrator, Welcome Resource Center: "Based on my experience here at the center for the past 6 years, I must say that homelessness; to me it's on the rise. We are seeing more and more people becoming homeless..."

IDB Wants Youth To 'Change Dah Story'
Today 120 youths gathered at the Biltmore for the launch of the first social innovation challenge. The Inter-American Development Bank along with Compete Caribbean, and the Government of Canada partnered to pilot this new initiative in Belize. The main idea is to engage youth to come up with solution-oriented proposals for problems they face. 3 of the winning proposals will get funding, training and mentorship. We stopped by for the launch and found out more about the competition. Sylvia Dohnert - Private Sector Lead Specialist, IDB: "So this event called "Change dah story is a social innovation methodology which seeks to use an innovative process to come up with business solutions that affect youth in this case..."

Man Shot, Did Cops Pull Trigger?
Police have 40-year-old Kenrick Reneau under police guard at the KHMH. They say that they had to pursue him and others in a high-speed chase which ended when they crashed into a lamp post on Linda Vista Street. The cops think that the group was preparing to commit a crime, and that's why they fled when police came up on them.  It happened before dawn this morning on Linda Vista Street in the Lake Independence area - and it ended when Reneau got shot. Deputy Head of the National Crimes Investigations Branch told us more:

Russel Reyes Targeted
Senior Superintendent Romero also shared a few details about another shooting which happened on Tuesday night on Dolphin Street. According to the cops, the victim, 23-year-old Russell Reyes, was riding his bicycle, minding his own business, when he heard a gunshot: Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero - Deputy Head, NCIB: "On Tuesday the 8th day of October 2019, at around 10:30 p.m, police visited the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital..."

Steals Liquor, Gets Drunk, Turns Himself Into Police
"Teef and ker' back" - it's one of the most maligned acts in our culture, but that's just what a Caye Caulker drinker did - and tonight he has a thousand dollar tab to pay because of it. Gerson Guerra, a thirty-four year old Caye Caulker resident who stole two bottles of liquor then handed himself into the police after he got drunk, and pleaded guilty to theft when he appeared today before Magistrate Emerson Banner. 

Making Coral Nurseries Work
For the past few weeks, we've been reporting on SCTLD, Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease and the untold damage it can do to Belize's reef. And, the truth is, the reef has been under attack for decades, from coral bleaching in the early aughts, to the Lionfish invasion which has been going on for about 10 years.   And that's why the concept of Coral Nurseries is so important. It's spearheaded in Belize by marine biologist Lisa Carne out of Placencia and a few months ago in San Pedro we met some kids who have taken up her mantle on their island.  They are part of the Kids In Action summer program and they told us about their Coral reef restoration program and coral nursery:

Turneffe Atoll in Belize
Turneffe Atoll is the newest marine region to receive national protection under the Belizean government. The atoll is notable for being the biologically diverse and populous atoll in all of the Americas. This area spans 30 miles in length and 10 miles in width. It is rich with species of coral, fish and massive rays, making it an excellent spot for anyone interesting in diving, sport fishing or snorkeling. If you want to find this spot, look 20 miles away from the coast of Belize City, to the southeast of Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. Turneffe is one-third of the trio of atolls within the Belize Barrier Reef, the other two being Glover’s Reef and Lighthouse Reef.

The Yucatec Mayas of Belize
The heart of the ancient Maya civilization that persisted for thousands of years in Mesoamerica was in Belize. The Maya survived many centuries of wars, imperialism, colonialism and natural disasters and continued to thrive as the only native people in Belize. There are three main factions of Maya that currently reside in Belize, which are the Yucatec, Kekchi, and Mopan. The Yucatec Mayas mainly live in northern Belize where they migrated in the middle of the 19th century from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. Most Mayas here are more Hispanicized versus Anglicized. They generally identify as Catholics and speak Yucatec Mayan and Spanish as their main languages but some of them do not speak the Mayan dialect.

Museums of Belize and Houses of Culture
Looking at the Museum of Belize as it stands today, tucked away on a narrow street known as Gaol Lane (the Old-English spelling for Jail) it is curious to realize that it was built more than a century and a half ago and that back then it served as a prison. Yes, construction on “Her Majesty’s Prison” was started in 1855, and completed in 1857. A previous prison, made of wood, was destroyed by fire. This new structure was built with bricks, known as “London Stocks” brought from England, and used as ballast on ships. This new institution was named “Her Majesty’s Prison”, and faced the Caribbean Sea. Each window in the building designated one cell for one man. In 1910, with an increase in inmates, it had to be extended an additional 30 feet.

How does Simone Biles do gymnastics skills that seem impossible?
On Thursday in Stuttgart, Germany, Simone Biles made history in claiming a fifth world all-around title. Made history again, that is. No other woman has won more than three world all-around titles. But Biles, 22, continues to astound. On Tuesday, she led the U.S. squad to team gold -- meaning she now has 22 (yes, you read that right) world medals in her personal collection. She has already won more world medals than any female gymnast in history. And she's far from done. Biles could legitimately medal in each of the four upcoming individual events in Stuttgart. If she wins "just" two more during the competition, she will beat the record of 23, held by legend Vitaly Scherbo, for most world medals ever won by a gymnast.

Hurricane Center tracks 3 disturbances in 3 different parts of Atlantic
Multiple tropical disturbances are churning the Atlantic from vastly different corners of the map, according to the National Hurricane Center’s 2 a.m. Friday update. First, a non-tropical low pressure system located off the northeastern coast of the United States is producing thunderstorms and storm-force winds. Second, a broad area of low pressure is expected to form in the west Caribbean over the weekend. It is forecast to drift westward toward the coasts of Honduras, Guatemala, and Belize.

We didn't have much time, so we decided to choose only one place which turned out to be amazing Caye Caulker.

We drank beer on the popular Split, sunbathed at Koko King resort, dived with stingrays and sharks and ate delicious lobsters. And we captured it all with a gopro camera and a dji drone.
