This week former educator/politician, Mr Eulogio Cano tell us that Sacred Heart RomanCatholic High School started 54years ago in a room downstairsthe Stork Club, the busiest andmost popular bar in San IgnacioT own in that era. T oday it is not permissible to open and operatea bar anywhere near a schoolmuch less a high school wherestudents are more mature. Our gun laws were once slackuntil the senseless spate of gunviolence showed its ugly headespecially on the south sidestreets of the old capital. Thisdevelopment necessitated thepassage of stringent, some mightsay draconian gun laws. T oday the gun violence has somewhatabated. Some among us are nowcalling for the slacking of the gunlaws. W e change with the current Life Is Dynamic time fit prevailing circumstancesand conditions. Such is life. A new era has dawn in the nation. The push, primarily byBelize City Mayor Darrell Bradley for the concreting of municipal streets is movingacross the country The asphalting of streets is becoming obsolete.Belizeans are cementing theiryard at home and/or the parkinglot at their business places.Changes are taking place, oldthings are going, new things andideas are emerging. This is whatlife is all about. The A-track player the cassette player/recorder the record player the film camera and the typewriter are all relics of an eragone by just as is the living incaves. The more modern CD isfading away Life is not stagnant. Life is dynamic. This week we heard the leaderof the opposition lamentingabout the closure of businesses,sounding an illogical and irrational alarm. He speaks as ifthe skies are falling. Hello Mr Leader of the opposition; this iswhat life is all about, businessesclose, new ones open. W as it not the legendary Bob Marley who classically told us that “When one door is closed, don’ t you know (Mr Leader of the Opposition) another is open”?

Page 8 STAR Tels: 626-8822 & 804-4900 Email:starnewspaper@gmail.com Sunday, June 15, 2014 Malaria Malaria Malaria Malaria Malaria Malaria is a mosquito-borneinfectious disease of humans andother animals caused by parasiticprotozoans (a type of unicellular microorganism) of the genus Plasmodium. Commonly the disease is transmitted by abite from an infected femaleAnopheles mosquito, whichintroduces the organisms fromits saliva into a person's circula-tory system. In the blood, theparasites travel to the liver tomature and reproduce. Malariacauses symptoms that typicallyinclude fever and headache,which in severe cases canprogress to coma or death. MAIN SYMPTOMS OF MALARIA The signs and symptoms ofmalaria typically begin 8–25days following infection;however symptoms may occur later in those who have takenantimalarial medications asprevention. Initial manifestationsof the disease—common to allmalaria species—are similar toflu-like symptoms, and canresemble other conditions suchas septicemia, gastroenteritis,and viral diseases. The presenta-tion may include headache, fever shivering, joint pain, vomiting,hemolytic anemia, jaundice,hemoglobin in the urine, retinaldamage, and convulsions. The classic symptom ofmalaria is paroxysm—a cyclical Main Symptoms of Malaria occurrence of sudden coldnessfollowed by shivering and thenfever and sweating, occurringevery two days (tertian fever) in P vivax and P ovale infections, and every three days (quartan fever) for P malariae. P falciparum infection can causerecurrent fever every 36–48hours or a less pronounced andalmost continuous fever Severe malaria is usuallycaused by P falciparum (often referred to as falciparummalaria) Symptoms of falciparum malaria arise 9–30days after infection. Individualswith cerebral malaria frequentlyexhibit neurological symptoms,including abnormal posturing,nystagmus, conjugate gazepalsy (failure of the eyes to turn together in the samedirection) opisthotonus, seizures, or coma. COMPLICA TIONS There are several seriouscomplications of malaria. Among these is the development ofrespiratory distress, whichoccurs in up to 25% of adults and40% of children with severe P falciparum malaria. Possiblecauses include respiratorycompensation of metabolicacidosis, noncardiogenicpulmonary oedema, concomitantpneumonia, and severe anaemia.Although rare in youngchildren with severe malaria, acute respiratory distresssyndrome occurs in 5–25% ofadults and up to 29% of pregnantwomen. Coinfection of HIV withmalaria increases mortality Renal failure is a feature ofblackwater fever where hemoglobin from lysed red bloodcells leaks into the urine. Infection with P falciparum may result in cerebral malaria,a form of severe malaria thatinvolves encephalopathy It is associated with retinal whitening,which may be a useful clinicalsign in distinguishing malariafrom other causes of fever Splenomegaly severe headache, hepatomegaly (enlarged liver), hypoglycemia, and hemoglobinuria with renal failuremay occur Malaria in pregnant women isan important cause of stillbirths,infant mortality and low birthweight, particularly in P falciparum infection, but alsowith P vivax. Malaria T ransmission Cycle CAUSE Malaria parasites belong tothe genus Plasmodium (phylum Apicomplexa) In humans, malaria is caused by P falciparum, P malariae, P ovale, P vivax and P knowlesi. Among those infected, P falciparum is the most common speciesidentified (~75%) followed by P vivax (~20%) Although P falciparum traditionally accounts for the majorityof deaths, recent evidencesuggests that P vivax malaria is associated with potentiallylife-threatening conditions about as often as with adiagnosis of P falciparum infection. P vivax proportionally is more common outside ofAfrica. There have beendocumented human infectionswith several species ofPlasmodium from higher apes;however with the exception of P knowlesi—a zoonotic species that causes malaria inmacaques—these are mostlyof limited public healthimportance. Climate change is likely toaffect malaria transmission, butthe severity and geographicdistribution of such effects iscurrently uncertain. W orld Malaria Day is an effort by the global malariacommunity to highlight thereported successes and theremaining challenges in malariacontrol today and to maximize the impact of substantialinvestments for this preventableand treatable disease. Belize has made significantprogress in the control ofMalaria over the past years,having reduced the incidencefrom 540 cases in 2008 to 79cases in 201 1. This year the Ministry of Health is on track foranother successful year having reduced the number of cases to33 in 9 communities, a drasticreduction from 201 1 in which 27 communities were producingcases. The Ministry continues totake an integrated approach toMalaria control in order toreduce cases. Health educationremains at the forefront whilecomplementing other effortssuch as Indoor Residual Spraying,distribution of long lasting insecticide treated bed nets, andengaging in community basedefforts to control and eliminatemosquito breeding sites.

Mr Cano said that some of the graduates who are still with us tothis day are Owen “Mr O” Gentle, Raymond “BrotherRay” Garcia, Lilia Balan,Alvar o Bautista, Alejandr o Salazar Edith Bejos, Joe Mena, Noemi A we, David Cab and Matildo Canto. “Edith and Joe,” he said “were college sweethearts and aremarried to this day as asuccessful business couple.”Like Eulogio; Matildo and Davidare retired primary schoolteachers. Alvaro is a retired public officer who held a seniorposition at the DevelopmentFinance Corporation and Owenworked for many years in theMinistry of Natural Resource andin retirement he continues towork as a land specialist andprofessional evaluator Coming from a poor SantaFamilia family Mr Cano informed that it was quite achallenge for his father to pay the$10 a month fee. He said thatafter the first year his father just could not afford to continuepaying his tuition. Notwithstand-ing, he remained in school as themonthly fee accumulated.“Father Martin did not put meout” said Mr Cano, “He told me that he saw great potentials inme. He told me that I was goingto be a teacher and that when Istart working I can pay the bill.” Immediately after graduatingfrom high school Mr Cano began his teaching career and,steadfast to the commitment, hepaid the college fees. Histeaching career which spannedover 20 years ended prematurelydue to a medical condition whichhe believes was caused by theconstant inhalation of chalk dust.T eaching took Mr Cano to Bullet T ree Falls V illage, Mountain Pine Ridge, SantaFamilia (his home village) Santa Elena and finally to Sacred HeartPrimary School.
