In the first case, a primary school female teacher reported to the police that she was at school where she was approached by a man she knows as Ellis Gomez who told her that he was sent to do some repair work at the school. He requested and received 30 dollars from the teacher to buy a tin of paint. He allegedly returned the following day and approached the same teacher who, at his request, gave him an additional 10 dollars which he said he needed to purchase formica. The man never returned with paint or the formica thereby prompting the teacher to report the matter to the police. In the second incident, a few days later, the same man visited St. Andrews Anglican School in San Ignacio. On this occasion Gomez’ story to a female teacher was that he recently received a donation of lumber and that he would like to use some of the lumber to build furniture for the school. At his request the teacher gave him 20 dollars to purchase nails to build a TV stand for her. He left with the cash and returned the following day and told the teacher that the TV stand was being built. In a subsequent conversation the teacher reportedly told him that she was having vehicle problems. He allegedly told her that she can get the vehicle repaired free of cost but that she had to purchase whatever parts were required. He returned about half an hour later and told her that he needed 38 dollars to purchase some rubbers. She gave him a 50 dollar bill and he left. He returned at about 3:45 that same evening and told the teacher that he needed money to purchase oil as the vehicle, he said, was badly in need of an oil change. She gave him another 50 dollar bill and he left. He kept the vehicle overnight and on the following day he returned for a fifth time in three days and on this occasion he requested 150 dollars to do additional repairs to the vehicle. All the teacher had was 100 dollars which she gave him. Gomez reportedly returned with the vehicle four days later and with a 20 dollars CD missing from inside the vehicle. The accused evaded the long arms of the law for a few days until LA LOMA LUZ BOULEVARD, Santa Elena, Cayo, Thursday, November 22, 2012: Holding true to his promise of increased employment within the community, Minister of Works and Transport/Cayo Central Area Representative, Hon.

Page 2 STAR Tels: 626-8822 & 626-8841 & 804-4900 Email:starnewspaper@gmail.com Sunday, November 25, 2012 It used to be in an era when, under a previous administration, any visit from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) would be cause for much panic by those sitting in high offices in Belmopan at that time. Despite the well known “cooking of the books” prior to the visit of any IMF team, the report card consistently carried a failing grade. The consistent economic failure continued to spiral downwards especially during the last five years of that administration’s term in office. That was the era when the information super highway (the internet) was not so super in Belize and so afforded that administration the veil to keep secret all those annual failing report cards from the IMF. It was also an era when official corruption peaked resulting in the halting of borrowing, at customary low interest rates, from traditional partners in development primarily the International Financial Institutions. Unable to borrow at concessionary rates, the nation state of Belize turned to Wall Street for development financing. Those Wall Street “Loan Sharks” were only too eager to lend to a desperate borrower at astronomical repayment rates and so Belize fell into the jaws of “sharks” on Wall Street. The relationship between those that governed Belize at that time and the “sharks” on Wall Street gave birth to that which we know today as the infamous “super-bond” the financial yoke around the neck of every single man, woman and child in Belize, a debt burden of over Two Billion Dollars. The administration that created the “super-bond” was spared any payment as, after incurring the unsustainable debt, they were booted out of office and the liability fell on the new administration. Payments on the “super-bond” were consistently made by the new administration but there came a point in time when the decision had to be made, to The Super-Bond, The IMF, The Future Looks Bright BELMOPAN, Thursday, November 15, 2012: PRESS RELEASE No. 12/443 An International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission led by Mr. Gerardo Peraza, visited Belize from November 1-15 to conduct its yearly review of the country’s economy, in the context of the IMF’s Artivle IV consultations. Mr. Peraza released the following statement in Belmopan at the conclusion of the meeting today: “Belize is experiencing an output rebound despite the decline in oil production. In 2012, real Gross Domestice Product (GDP) growth is expected at 3.5-4 percent, led by a recovery from last year’s effects of weatherrelated damages in commodity exports as well as a recovery in tourism, and electricity generation. Inflation which stood at 1.5 percent in January August, has been easing as commodity prices pressures abate. The current account deficit is expected to narrow to 2.3 percent of GDP (down from 2.5 percent of GDP in 2011) thanks to higher inflows from tourism, lower repatriation of dividends by foreign companies operating in Belize, and higher remittances, despite a moderate widening of the trade deficit in goods. Preliminary fiscal data suggest that the government’s primary surplus target of 2 percent of GDP is within reach, but will require a close monitoring of spending for the remainder of this fiscal year.” “In light of the ongoing negotiations with bondholders on the restructuring of the “superbond”, further discussions with the authorities are required to complete this year’s Article IV consultations. Talks are expected to resume in the near future. Discussions so far have been focused on fiscal stability, external stability, and policies to enhance the financial sector resilience. In parallel with the Article IV consultations, a technical assistance mission assessed the current framework for debt management and helped the authorities build relevant institutional capacity.” “The mission would like to thank the Belizean government officials as well as political opposition, private sector and labor union representatives, with whom it had the privilege of exchanging views, for their excellent collaboration.”either halt making payments until more manageable terms could be negotiated, or to bring hardship upon the Belizean people by squeezing taxpayers money to service the “superbond” A caring government, of course, chose to halt payment and to begin the process of renegotiating payments on the “super-bond” Then just last week emerged those on the other side with vested financial interest in the “superbond”. They began unleashing criticism upon the Government for the temporary halting of bond payment. They seem, to be shedding tears for bondholders arguing that Government should continue making payments on the “superbond” It does not matter to these people that, what with millions of dollars leaving our shores to make payments on their “superbond” hardships would certainly have to be meted to the Belizean people, this did not matter to those people as long as bondholder gets their millions. The most recent IMF report is in and it paints a bright future for the Belizean economy. In putting together the summary, the head of the IMF Mission informed of holding consultations with the “political opposition”. Notwithstanding this consultation, the Belizean economy emerged with a clean bill of health. This is highly unlike the ad nauseam pronouncements by an opposition political party which at every available opportunity, never fails to shout that the Belizean economic sky is falling. The chickens are now coming home to roost, the nation is seeing the benefits of the 8th amendment to the Constitution of Belize, the very amendment which enshrined therein Belizean ownership to its major utilities: Says the IMF report. “The current account deficit is expected to narrow to 2.3 percent of GDP thanks to ....... lower repatriation of dividends by foreign companies operating in Belize.” In other words, more revenue from light, water and telephone is staying in Belize going neither to Canada nor to the United States America. The road ahead looks bright. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is certainly not the light of an oncoming train. For all these positive accomplishments, a nation is thankful to Prime Minister Dean Barrow and the United Democratic Party Government1. “Belize is experiencing an output rebound 2. growth is expected 3.

Tel: 824-3099 Cell: 652-0123Eradicating Eradicating Eradicating Eradicating Eradicating “Machismo” “Machismo” “Machismo” “Machismo” “Machismo”By: Pastor Scott Stirm If we look at the many problems facing our nation today, most all of them trace back to a leadership problem. John Maxwell says “Everything rises or falls upon the shoulders of leadership.” No, I’m not complaining about our politicians, I’m talking about leadership as a whole, beginning with leadership in the home, our role as husbands & fathers. Did you know that 80% of the children born in the Caribbean are born outside of marriage? And HALF of that figure will NEVER KNOW WHO THEIR FATHER IS!!! In Jamaica, it’s 90% of the kids born outside of marriage. And in Haiti, with rampant poverty & disorder, 94% of the children are born outside of marriage, and HALF of those children will never know who their father is. In the Caribbean region we have experienced a terrible breakdown of the family structure, and our crime & violence statistics are proof of that. Ranking up there with our Belize statistics are Jamaica and Trinidad – common denominator? Same culture, same problem… This cultural backdrop identifies the need and the call for the StrongMen Belize Tour, 10 nights, 10 towns, 10 rallies to call forth Belizean men to be TRULY StrongMen strong in what’s right. You see, we’ve been LIED TO! We’ve been raised with “machismo” mindsets that “a REAL man has lotta women! He’s so much a man that he can’t contain himself!!” “A REAL man has pikni all over the place!” “A real man can hold his liquor, and he doesn’t open up about his feelings” maybe because he doesn’t truly FEEL! We’ve been LIED TO! And these fake machismo stereotypes are the farthest thing from the truth!! A truly StrongMan loves his wife deeply, and he stays with ONE WOMAN!! He loves his children and connects with them affectionately, he spends time with them and imparts values and blessing to his children. He speaks words of affirmation & truth, knowing that his words are powerful and will carry into his children’s adulthood. A truly StrongMan is one who does the right thing in business, is honest, a man of integrity – this is TRUE POWER! And yes, we realize these truly StrongMen are in short supply, but that is changing!! We have reached a tipping point of “critical mass” in our country, where the crime & violence is getting to a point where the people will not tolerate it any more! In God’s absolutely merciful redemption, what PRESS RELEASE Possible Billings for Garbage Fee November 21, 2012 For immediate circulation Belize Water Services Ltd (BWS – the Company) is aware of recent concerns regarding the possibility of garbage fees in Belize City being “tacked on” to water bills. Whilst BWS has been in discussion with the Belize City Council (the Council) regarding the use of BWS’ expertise to generate and distribute garbage bills and serving as a collection point for garbage fees, this has not yet been finalized. BWS wishes to reiterate that the Company has clearly indicated to the Council and to the Public Utilities Commission (PUC), the statutory regulator of utilities, that this would only be considered under the following four conditions: 1. BWS would establish a separate entity using its billing software to generate a separate bill for garbage fees. 2. The Council would have to inform BWS of customers to receive garbage bills for the creation of a separate and independent customer base since it cannot be assumed that every BWS customer would be billed for garbage collection and vice versa. 3. BWS would endeavor to streamline such billings so that the delivery of garbage bills coincide with BWS bill delivery cycle for efficiency pur poses only. 4. BWS would not disconnect any BWS customers for non-payment of garbage fees. As the discussion with the Council continues, BWS is committed to keeping the public informed as this situation develops. BWS – Delivering Water and More … For more information regarding this or any other BWS Release, please contact: Corporate Communications at Tel: 222-4757 Ext. 317 or 281 or via e-mail at corporate.communicatons@bwsl.com.bz happens is that the bad gets SO BAD that it turns into a WAKE UP CALL!! And I say let that turn into a REFORMATION!! Our nation, our culture needs to be REFORMED!! And the best way for that to happen is for MEN to wake up, and realize that we as men are called to be the “servant leaders” of our home, the “lawmaker” of our home, to set things in order so that there can be fruitfulness and true happiness. Our theme is tha t “if the men come into proper alignment with right priorities, the women and the children will be properly cared for!” And it’s true! If we had a nation of truly StrongMen do you realize there would be no fatherlessness? And because of that, we would be eradicating poverty, because fatherlessness & single motherhood is one of the primary causes of poverty. Do you realize that with StrongMen of principle, there would be no more sexual immorality? And because of that, we would eradicate AIDS & HIV!! And abortion, because the majority of the abortion is from sexual immorality!! You think I’m living in dreamland? I don’t! I think I’m seeing a picture of how God has made it to be, and I’m saying to MEN all over Belize, “WAKE UP and let’s GO THERE!!!” Let’s be the men of truth & principle, good husbands, good fathers!

Mark The Date & Time Tuesday, December 4, 2012 @ 10.30AM On Site The Rotary Club of San Ignacio is proud to announce the start of two important projects to support the school infrastructure in Cayo. Within one week two ground-breaking ceremonies for new toilet facilities took place at Eden S.D.A. Primary School in Santa Elena and St. Andrews Anglican School in San Ignacio. They were well attended by all the kids, the staff, and representatives of the PTA and the Ministry of Education, the Town Council, the Rotary Club of San Ignacio, the building contractor and the press. Both schools existing bathrooms have been outgrown over the years by the increasing number of students and need to be replaced. The schools will receive modern flush toilets in adequate numbers that are also accessible by wheelchairs. The building plans are based on a standard model that is recommended by the Ministry of Education which was also instrumental in selecting the schools. The buildings will even be equipped with fresh water storage tanks in case of interrupted public water supply. The goal of these two projects is not only to provide the kids with decent bathrooms. In each school the whole measure will be embedded in the health education curriculum that teaches personal hygiene among others. The influence of the new bathrooms on absenteeism as a result of diarrheal diseases will be monitored as a part of the project. The two building projects with a joint budget of nearly $110,000 will serve almost 900 kids. They follow similar projects of the Rotary Club of San Ignacio in Blackman Eddy Primary School, Sacred Heart College, Bishop Martin, Santa Familia and Sacred Heart Primary Schools. The Rotary Club of San Ignacio belongs to the international Rotary organization which currently has more than 1.2 million members in over 34.000 clubs worldwide. The current project is made possible by the very generous donations of several Canadian Rotary Clubs and the Rotary District 5020 collected by the Rotary Club of South Cowichan (Mill Bay) in British Columbia, Canada. Together they donated over $55.000 as solid base for the funding. The amount was then matched with $44.000 by The Rotary Foundation with headquarters in Evanston, Illinois. The balance was contributed locally by the two schools and the Rotary Club of San Ignacio. As before the building work is done by our reliable local contractor Felix Lopez. Thanks to Mayor John August who pledged the towns support of heavy equipment. The Rotary Club of San Ignacio will manage the projects and support the builder with working days in both schools. It is planned to finish the buildings within 3 months.

AQUARIUS: January 21 to February 19 Deep inside, don't you have an urge to breathe new spirit into your love life? Of course, some things are more easily said than done. Currently, you don't have much time to devote to yourself, much less your partner. Affection could thrive if given half a chance. The day suggests that you commit yourself to making some decisions that will help bring you and your mate closer. Lucky numbers: 27, 75, 93. PISCES: February 20 to March 21 It is time to get what you need. Your desires don't always go in a direction that does you the most good, and this can cause tension. You feel as though it is impossible to combine your desires with what is good for you, notably in your love life. You wrestle with whether you should remain in your "creative" cave or share your life with someone. It doesn't have to be one or the other. Lucky numbers: 07, 66, 83.

The Ministry of Health assures the public that the active ingredient in this product is acetaminophen 500mg, which is the same ingredient in the similar product, TYLENOL. As stated in the initial release, preliminary investigations revealed that Tlemol is marketed in the United States of America under this name and it was legally imported in Belize by Generic Club Ltd and duly registered by the Belize Intellectual Property Office (BELIPO).

He quietly took off his clothes in the dark and was about to get into bed when his wife asked, “Honey, can you go over to the drugstore and pick me up some aspirin?” Mike got dressed in the dark and walked over to the drugstore. He got the aspirin and went up to the cash register to pay. The clerk looked at him for a moment and asked, “Aren’t you Mike Lopez?” “Yes I am.” responded Mike. The clerk looked puzzled and asked, “ Well, aren’t you a police officer?” “Yes I am.” responded Mike again.

I was born and raised in Dangriga Town like my mother, Josephine Sampson and my father Finley Sylvester Ramos. My maternal abundance for our family to eat. The money was made from farming was used to purchase the other items we need at home. Why didn’t the Garifuna people advance from slash and burn farming to industrial and mechanical farming when they had the land, crops and expertise? Was this a decision they made on their own or were they not given the opportunity by the governments in the countries where they live? I think that the answers for these two questions should be researched because from the time we stopped farming our dependency increased tremendously. In Stann Creek District there are jobs in the citrus and banana industries but our youths do not want to work these jobs. They are either not looking for work or want jobs that do not exist. We were removed from St. Vincent to Roatan. From there we moved to Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Belize and the United States. Where are we going next no one knows. If we keep moving from place to place and we are still having the same problems, then maybe we would have been better off staying in the same place to build on what we had. We are citizens of all the countries where we were born and as such we should be entitled to all rights and privileges like every other citizen despite our race. If we are not satisfied with the way we are treated in our countries, then we should bring a constitutional case against the governments that are mistreating us. If we fail in our national courts then we must not be afraid to take the cases to the International courts to seek redress. Countries that violate human rights are not popular and they lose face in world opinion when it comes to international diplomacy. Sitting down complaining to ourselves about how the people and governments of these countries treat us will not solve our problems. Simultaneous economic development and cultural preservation is a way forward. Instead of Celebrations, Cultural Preservation And Economic Development Is The Future For Our Garifuna PeopleBy: Wellington C. Ramos grandmother Andelecia PetilloSampson was born in Livingston, Guatemala and my maternal grandfather Simeon Sampson Sr. was born in Dangriga Town, Belize. My paternal grandmother Claudina Lewis-Ramos was born in Dangriga Town and my paternal grandfather Zacharus Ramos was born in Bluefield, Nicaragua. We all have relatives that we can trace to St. Vincent “Yuremei” our original homeland, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Belize. No matter where the Garifuna people live land problems, lots, housing, education, medical, unemployment, discrimination. racism, lost of language, culture, religion, unequal distribution of their nation’s wealth, political victimization, poverty and other social problems plague their communities. Yet, they do not have Garifuna organizations that are equipped with many transformational leaders who are honest, sincere and dedicated to uplift their people out of the dilemma they face daily. Many of the so-called Garifuna leaders are more concerned about promoting their self-interest over the interest of the majority of the Garifuna people. Some choose to affiliate with politicians and political parties that have no intentions to address the needs and concerns of our people. Several celebrations have passed with mottos and themes that sound good and well written but our people’s lives are not improving. Instead, in my honest opinion, it has gone from bad to worst. These problems are not just going to go away unless we admit that they exist and develop plans and programs to eradicate them. This year like most years, I have heard all the speeches and have seen the dancing and the punta rock but when we all get up tomorrow, our problems will still be there for us to deal with. If we seriously want to preserve our culture and improve the lives of our people, we cannot anymore continue to engage in this type of fantasy behavior. In the past our ancestors had little but they were worked hard to provide for their children and themselves. Farming and fishing played a major role in their lives which our young children despise today. I remember, as a child, going to our farm with my family early in the mornings, to engage in slash and burn farming at “Bagasrugu” three miles out of Dangriga Town Those days were hard but we learnt and develop good work ethic, discipline, pride and had food in

El Salvador gang truce: Can MS-13 and 18th Street keep the peace? By Linda Pressly BBC Radio 4’s Crossing Continents, San Salvador, November 21, 2012: In March this year El Salvador’s most violent gangs the Mara Salvatrucha and the 18th Street gang agreed a truce. As a result, the murder rate of this small Central American country has plummeted but can the peace last? On a Sunday morning, the main street into Majucla, a poor community in the north of San Salvador, looks like any other. It is a dirt road, there are food stalls, and people walk up and down, many dressed for church. Some men stand around in groups of two or three, chatting look closely and you will see the tattoos. One of them has artwork that starts on his skull, covers his face and neck and disappears under his T-shirt. On one cheek a large M is tattooed, on the other an S. All these men are members of the Mara Salvatrucha gang, known as the MS. Until March this year, these men were at war with the 18th Street gang. Their deadly conflict pushed El Salvador’s homicide rate to a high of 13 or 14 a day. Now the men with the tattoos in communities like Majucla bear responsibility for upholding a truce. Gang Truce In El Salvador Please Turn To Page 17 “The time is right, and we are showing the Salvadoran people we can be peaceful,” says an emotional Ismael Guererro. “I have lost too many friends and relatives in the violence. We don’t want another war because we are thinking about our children.” MS member Dany Mendez spent six years in jail in connection with three murders. He is just 25 years old. “Before the truce started we would go looking for our enemies the 18th Street gang to kill them,” he says. “I killed our enemies. Sometimes it was in self-defence, but that’s part of life. And then the truce started. I think it’s good to enjoy some peace and tranquillity not just in neighbourhoods like ours, but in the whole country.” Mendez’s sentiments are echoed by the leaders of his once-sworn enemies. At the prison of Cojutepeque, around 900 18th Street gang members occupy a jail built for 300 men. Jose Heriberto Enriquez, who is serving time for murder, was one of the leaders who sat down in meetings with leaders from the Mara Salvatrucha. “It was difficult,” he remembers. “I mean, they see me in the street, they’re going to kill me! So we had to agree that there would be mutual respect.” The Mara Salvatrucha gang originated in the Pico-Union neighbourhood of Los Angeles in the 1980s. It is said the gang’s initial purpose was to protect Salvadoran immigrants from more established LA gangs. Today the FBI has a dedicated task-force dedicated to combating the gang. Many members were deported back to El Salvador after being arrested in Los Angeles. Today the gang has a presence all over the United Carlos Tiberio Valladares is an MS leader who says he is committed to the truce with rivals 18th Street

Also abbreviated as Mara, MS-13 or MS, there are conflicting versions of how the Mara Salvatrucha got their name a common explanation is that ‘Mara’ means ‘gang’ in Spanish, ‘Salva’ for El Salvador, and ‘trucha’ is a slang word meaning ‘stay alert’. The 18th Street gang started in the Rampart district of LA and has grown into a large multi-ethnic, transnational criminal organisation made up of hundreds of autonomous gangs. 18th Street gang tattoos can include symbols such as XV3, XVIII, 666 (6+6+6) and 99 (9+9). Like the Mara Salvatrucha, facial tattoos are a common characteristic of 18th Street gang members in El Salvador. “We know they’ve killed a lot of our people. And I guess they feel the same way, because our ‘homies’ did the same thing to them.” “But in the end the main purpose of the truce was for us to stop the killings.” The agreement was negotiated in a series of secret meetings with both gangs’ leaders in El Salvador’s prisons. It was facilitated by a Catholic bishop and a former rebel commander of the left-wing guerrillas someone who battled the military in El Salvador’s civil war in the 1980s. The truce has been in place now for over eight months, and the murder rate has fallen to around five a day. It is a dramatic result. The [FMLN] government of El Salvador insists it has “facilitated” not “negotiated” the truce. The man generally believed to be the brains behind the strategy is the minister of justice and security, Gen David Munguia Payes. “We found in research that more than 90% of murders were gang-related. So it was very simple if we could get to the gangs we could control the killings,” he explains. “And it isn’t just the killing of gang members that’s diminished... Now the gangs aren’t at war, they don’t need to enforce recruitment in schools, so the number of students being murdered is down too,” Gen Payes says. In communities once dominated by bloody street battles, residents are now freer to go about their business. They can go out at night, send their children to the shops, and leave their front doors open. But many Salvadorans are still suspicious. Some believe the gangs have been paid to participate in the truce an allegation denied by the government and the gangs. Others make more troubling claims they believe local and Mexican drug cartels are somehow behind the peace. Gang warfare makes their business messy, and the traffickers need the truce to get their product north to the US market. “The truce and the negotiations that made it are a strategy of Please Turn To Page 19 Continued From Page 16 Gang Truce In El Salvador

August Editor: Albert Nigel August#42 George Price Highway, Santa Elena, Cayo, Belize, CA Melissa Roja Lawlor, Contributor So long playground teasing and taunting, bullying has entered cyberspace, ridiculing kids in the safety of their bedrooms and smartphones. Recently, it replaced stranger danger as parents’ worst fear. Drs. Laurie and Fred Zelinger a husband and wife team with more than 70 years of combined experience working in schools, to get their insight into how to communicate better with our children, whether they are being bullied or they are the bully. The Zelingers’ Top 5 Tips for Dealing with Bullying in Your Family: 1. Sit side-by-side, and start with a statement. “There’s been some research about how boys and men communicate better when they’re sitting next to each other as opposed to sitting opposite each other,” Dr. Laurie Zelinger points out. Try to find times when you are sitting close enough to your child without the pressure of time to get something done, and open up communication about Top 5 Tips for Dealing with Bullying Top 5 Tips for Dealing with Bullying Top 5 Tips for Dealing with Bullying Top 5 Tips for Dealing with Bullying Top 5 Tips for Dealing with Bullying bullying with a casual statement instead of a question; a statement feels less confrontational to the child. “Something simple, like, ‘Wow, looks like you’re really thinking about something right now”, Dr. Laurie Zelinger says. You never know where it might lead. 2. Use the power of positive reinforcement Many parents think that if they punish their child for bullying, it will solve the problem. But Dr. Fred Zelinger disagrees. “Bullies don’t go away because they’re disciplined. If your child is bullying, try to catch him doing something good, like playing with a sibling, or sharing, or generally being kind to someone else, and positively reinforce that behavior. It’s more powerful.” The Zelingers strongly believe in positive reinforcement, adding that it works best in terms of promoting better behavior for bullies as well as bullying victims. 3. Watch for signs. Children who are bullied often exhibit signs of anxiety that something might be going on in their school lives. Dr. Laurie Zelinger notes: “ Lots of times it’s avoidance, feeling sick, trouble going to sleep at night, changes in eating patterns — these are the things that change in children when they’re anxious or worried. They also may become regressive — they may talk in baby talk, or there might be an increase in clinginess.” 4. Stay active and involved, especially when it comes to technology. With cyberbullying on the rise, parents need to be extremely mindful of what their kids are doing — offline and online. “The truth of the matter is, we have to understand the technology that they’re using,” Dr. Fred Zelinger advises. “Know about texting language, instant messaging, social media and the internet. You can’t be ignorant about it if you have kids.” Keep your computers and internet access in a central location. Most importantly, talk to your kids about acceptable online behavior, and how to avoid being a bystander in online bullying. 5. Be ready for anything. Discovering that your child is involved in bullying can be the toughest news to swallow as a parent. According to Dr. Fred Zelinger, readying yourself and accepting it is the most important step to opening communication lines. “A lot of parents [of bullies] will say, ‘Not my kid, that’s just not possible, ‘“ he says. If you keep denying it, what’s the kid going to think? Your denial is tacitly approving his behavior.” Not all bullies bully for the same reason; having the difficult conversations and understanding why they bully is critical to getting them to stop. Dr. Fred Zelinger adds, “Don’t be afraid to talk about the information you’ve received, but don’t lecture and make threats. Say, ‘I’ve heard that you have done this ... let’s talk about it and figure out what’s happening. Listen to answers, don’t interrupt with moralizations, threats or demands. Getting the child to talk is your primary goal. Offering to help the child come up with other solutions as an alternative to bullying is really important.”

It’s what I call a ‘mafia peace’, that is, the end doesn’t justify the means.” Gen Payes denies claims of drug cartel involvement in the truce. “The gangs aren’t involved in the heavy trafficking of drugs, although they are selling drugs locally,” he says. “But if we don’t divert the gangs away from crime, with more than 60,000 members and the control they have, they could turn into cartels with arms, money and power. “We must take advantage of this moment while gang members are showing a willingness to change.” But how well is the truce holding? For some Salvadorans it is a cruel fantasy. Claudia not her real name has not seen her teenage son since he stepped out to buy some food one night in October. She heard five shots. One young man was killed his body lay in the street. Claudia’s son, who was associated with the 18th Street gang, disappeared. She thinks the Mara Salvatrucha kidnapped him. “We’re committed to the truce we’re giving you our word and we won’t betray that” “I think they wanted to torture him, that’s why they took him away. And they probably buried him in one of their clandestine cemeteries that they have around the country. I know he’s dead. I’m only hoping to find his body.” Disappearances like this put a question mark over the truce and they challenge the authority of the gangs’ leaders it is widely believed that those who violate the truce are themselves murdered. In the prison of Ciudad Barrios more than 2,500 members of the Mara Salvatrucha are serving time in miserable conditions. Since the truce, the most important MS leaders have been relocated here from the maximum security jail. Some of them like their counterparts in the 18th Street gang grew up in Los Angeles, refugees of El Salvador’s civil war in the 1980s. Then the US began deporting convicted felons many of them gang members who were strangers to El Salvador. It is a policy that has contributed to the size and influence of gangs here. Carlos Tiberio Valladares is a home-grown MS leader, serving 30 years for murder. He got his first tattoo at 16 now his face is a Continued From Page 17 Gang Truce In El Salvador canvas of blue ink. Many people would find him intimidating. “But appearances are deceptive,” he says. “What counts is what’s in your heart.” Carlos wants to send a message to the people of El Salvador especially those who are suspicious of what has happened with the gangs. “We’re committed to the truce. We’re giving you our word and we won’t betray that.” El Salvador is still holding its breath.

Susana Freydoz shot her husband as the two argued at their ranch in Rio Negro province, where they and their family had gathered for New Year celebrations. The judges ruled that she should remain in hospital where she is undergoing psychiatric treatment. Mr Soria had been sworn in a few weeks earlier as governor of Rio Negro. He was at his ranch in General Roca, in south-central Rio Negro province, celebrating New Year with his family. Freydoz was the only suspect in the murder, as she was the only person in a room with him when he was shot in the eye. Prosecutors said the shooting happened “in the middle of a family argument”. Prosecutors had asked for a life sentence but the judges ruled that there were “extenuating circumstances” including serious mental health issues, as well as alcohol and drug use. The defence argued that Freydoz’s mental state meant she was unfit to stand trial. In happier days (L-R) Carlos Soria and wife Susana Freydoz Mr Soria was only a few weeks into his tenure, having been sworn in on 10 December 2011. He was a member of Argentina’s governing Peronist party and had been elected in Rio Negro by a wide margin.

Further Big Drop In New HIV Further Big Drop In New HIV Further Big Drop In New HIV Further Big Drop In New HIV Further Big Drop In New HIVInfections Among Children Infections Among Children Infections Among Children Infections Among Children Infections Among Children The UN's latest assessment of global cases of HIV/Aids shows there has been a further drop in new infections among children. There were 330,000 new infections in children last year the figure is 24% lower than in 2009. But the report by UNAids also warns "significant additional effort is required" if broader targets to tackle HIV/Aids are to be achieved by 2015. The agency's director said the pace of progress was speeding up. Overall, 34 million people around the world are now thought to have the virus that causes Aids. The number of new infections in adults has stayed broadly stable for the past four years at about 2.5 million new cases a year. Practical programmes Many more people with HIV now receive life-saving drugs which keep the virus under control. But the report estimates seven million people who need treatment still do not have it. Sub-Saharan Africa remains the most severely affected part of the world, though some countries there have made impressive efforts in reducing fresh cases. The executive director of UNAids, Michel Sidibe told BBC News: "Ethiopia, Malawi and Botswana have achieved big reductions in new infections, showing they are capable of controlling the epidemic. "Twenty-five countries have reduced the number of new infections by more than 50%. "In general, we've moved from a phase of political rhetoric to programmes being implemented and having an effect."But some countries aren't using the right strategies Russia, for example, where infections are still growing." The report also shows significant increases in Aids-related deaths in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. UNAids is monitoring progress against targets such as reducing sexual transmission of HIV by 50% by 2015, and providing antiretroviral therapy to all 15 million people who need it. The report shows where challenges remain. For example, it says there needs to be a scaling up of efforts to offer circumcision to men, which trials have shown is effective in preventing some new infections. And it describes how "intensive efforts" are under way to find effective non-surgical approaches to circumcision avoiding the need for scalpels or stitches so that trained nurses could carry out the procedure rather than doctors. Dr Manica Balasegaram, Executive Director of Mdecins Sans Frontires/Doctors Without Borders Access Campaign, said: "Scaling up HIV treatment to 15 million people from 8 million today is feasible and has the crucial triple benefit of reducing illness, reducing death, and reducing the risk of transmission."
