No T urning Back Formed on September 27,1973 the United Democratic Party(UDP) is this week engaged in activities commemorating the41st anniversary of the formationof the party The UDP was birthed through the amalgamation of the Phillip Goldson led National Independence Party(NIP) Dean Lindo’ s People’ s Development Movement (PDM) and the Liberal Party founded by Manuel Esquivel, Curl Thompson, Henry“Pa Hen” Y oung, Harrison “Sir Harry” Lawrence and Nestor“Net” V asquez. Eleven years after its formation the UDP made history in December 1984 when it defeated the George Price led People’ s United Party (PUP) in the first general elections after theSeptember 21, 1981 attainment ofBelize’ s political independence from Great Britain. History was also made in the 1984 general election when the undefeatedPremier/newly appointed PrimeMinister Geor ge Cadle Price was defeated in the FreetownConstituency by the young political newcomer Der ek Aikman who would become the youngest memberof the Manuel Esquivel led UDP Government. Having served as government going on to four terms in postIndependence Belize, the UDP iscurrently serving its first back to backterms in office in post independentBelize. The PUP has served three terms in government in post independent Belizeas follows: 1989 to 1993 under theleadership of George Cadle Price Then between 1998 and 2003 underSaid Musa who was reelected to serve a second consecutive termbetween 2003 and 2008. In the first administration the PUP under George Price, financed theeconomy through the bucket sale ofour passports. The scandalous sale ofour national identity was so troublingthat, combined with the terrible stateof the national economy Geor ge Price was forced to call election in1993, a full 16 months before it wasconstitutionally due. The UDPwon those elections by a margin of21 to 7. In the second PUP administration1998 to 2003, this time under SaidMusa as Price was forced out in1996, Said Musa along with theunelected senator Ralph Fonseca financed the economy by selling all ournational assets under the guise ofprivatization. Our electricity water and telephone companies werepackaged and sold to privateinterests. Our airport and seaportwere sold. The prison was privatized.The government printing service wasprivatized. The International Shipregistry and the International BusinessCompany registry was privatelyowned and operated, among others. In the third PUP administrationagain under Said Musa, the economywas financed through unrestrainedborrowing resulting in the creation ofthat monster known as the infamous2 Billion dollar Super Bond. Forcedto use borrowed monies to meetrecurrent expenditure, including thesalaries and wages of public officers,the nation’ s infrastructure was neglected and no new project wasimplemented. T wo billion dollars were borrowed and spent and thePUP had nothing to show for it. The UDP was reelected togovernment in 2008 with Dean Barr ow as the leader of the party Prime Minister Dean Barrow came tooffice vowing not to committhe errors of the two previousUDP Administrations: NO RETRENCHMENT and NO NEWT AXES. The current Dean Barrow administration, into its secondconsecutive term in office, is neitherselling our passports nor our nationalassets. In fact our telecommunicationsand electricity companies have beenrenationalized. Our water company isnow government majority owned. A sitting Minister of government was sacked on allegations ofengaging in selling a single passport. Prime Minister Barrow moved promptly to renationalize our publicutilities. First to be renationalized wasthe telephone company in 2009followed by the electricity companyin 2010 and the international shipregistry in 201 1. The dreaded super bond has beensuccessfully renegotiated. Public officers have received 9%increase in salaries with more to come. No new taxes have beenintroduced. The nation is undergoingunprecedented development. The difference is as clear as day isto night.

Sunday, September 28, 2014 STAR Tels: 626-8822 & 804-4900 Page 5 BY : Sr Elsa Oliva, SACHelpAge Belize Patroness The theme for this year ’ s Senior Citizen’ s week is “LEA VING NO ONE BEHIND: PROMOTING A SOCIETY FOR ALL” The last week of Septemberleading up to the 1st of October the official International Day of OlderPersons, is designated to celebrateand honor Senior Citizens. HelpAgeBelize has set aside this week toreview the progress made or lackthereof and to re-strategize ifnecessary improve the effectivenessand end results of the variousprograms and projects that we haveimplemented to benefit our olderpersons in Belize. Our Society has a lot to be desiredin regards to the respect, protection Opening Address for Senior Citizen’s Week Opening Address for Senior Citizen’s Week Opening Address for Senior Citizen’s Week Opening Address for Senior Citizen’s Week Opening Address for Senior Citizen’s Week and services offered to our OlderCitizens both on the family andcommunity level. Several Seniorcitizens have been murdered over thepast weeks. W e are also very familiar with the scenario where anolder lady or man who boards acrowded public transport and isunable to get a seat even though manyof these seats are occupied by youngand able-bodied men and women.“How many of us have offered ahelping hand to an older personcrossing the road?” At the family level, we are also aware of the scenario in which“granny” is kept in a little back room all by herself and is rarely seen or heardfrom. In all these cases the olderperson is being disrespected. HelpAge Belize and its partners understand that there is a need toaddress the Older Population, whoseglobal population will grow to twentypercent (1.4 Billion) by 2030. By 2030, there will be more people over60 than children under 10, with themost rapid change in age structuresoccurring in the developing countriesIf our ambition is to “Build the Future W e want,” we must address concerns of this Population, we mustincrease our present efforts inadvocating for the rights of OlderPersons in all spheres of their lives.The issue of protection for OlderPersons is not limited to just theirprotection from crime and violencebut includes protection from mentaland financial abuse. While we arecognizant of the work that is presentlybeing done by a number of agencies (both Government and NGO’S) in combating instances of abuse againstOlder Persons. It is my hope thatrenewed efforts will be taken up bythese agencies to review and re-f ocustheir strategies in the fight againstelderly abuse. I would like to take thisopportunity to ask God’ s blessing, and extend our gratitude on theGovernment, the private agencies andindividuals who contribute sogenerously to make our programs andprojects possible; to the volunteersall over the country who give theirtime, energy and talents in aid of theelderly In conclusion, I would like toextend greetings and best wishes toeach and every Older Person inBelize as we celebrate SENIORCITIZENS WEEK 2014. May GodContinue to bless you and yours andbless Belize. Thank you!! BY : Barrington Castillo Do you want to join other poets,musicians, and artists around theplanet in a celebration to promotepeace and sustainability and to call forserious social and environmentalchange 1) What kind of a change are wetalking about? 2) I want to organize in my area. How do we begin to organize?“What kind of CHANGE are wetalking about?” The first order of change is forpoets, writers, musicians, artists,activists to get together to create andperform, educate and demonstrate,simultaneously with other communities around the world. Thiswill change how we see our localcommunity and the global community W e have all become incredibly The 100 Thousand Poets For ChangeMovement For Peace & Sustainability alienated in recent years. W e hardly know our neighbors down the streetlet alone our creative allies who liveand share our concerns in othercountries. W e need to feel this kind of global solidarity It will be empowering. And of course there is the political/ social change that many of us aretalking about these days. There istrouble in the world. W ars, violation of human rights, ecocide, racism,genocide, gender inequality homelessness, the lack of affordablemedical care, police brutality religious persecution, poverty censorship, animal cruelty the list goes on and on. It appears that transformationtowards a more sustainable world isa major concern and could be aglobal guiding principle for 100 TPC events. Peace also seems to be acommon cause. W ar is not sustainable. There is an increasingsense that we need to move forwardand stop moving backwards. Butwe are not trying not to be dogmatic.W e hope that together we can develop our ideas of the “change/ transformation” we are looking for as a global community and that eachlocal community group will decidetheir own specific area of focus forchange for their particular event.All we ask is that local communitiesorganize events about change withinthe guidelines of peace andsustainability If you are an organizer for yourcommunity this means that first youwill consider a location for the eventand begin to contact people in yourarea who want to participate in the event. Participation means contactingthe media, posting the event on theweb, in calendars, newspapers, etc.,reading poems, doing a concert,performing in general, supplyingcupcakes and beer (it’ s up to you) demonstrating, putting up aninformation table, inviting guestspeakers, musicians, etc., organizingan art exhibit, and documenting theevent (this is important, too) and cleaning up, of course. Organizers and participants willcreate their own local event as anexpression of who they are locally Do they want a a concert or a jamsession, candlelight vigil or a circus, amarch or a dance, poetry reading in acafe or on the subway do they want absolute silence, a group meditationon a main street; it’ s up to the local organization. However groups should try to hold some part of the event, if notall of it, outdoors, in public view (not required) The point is to be seen and heard, not just stay behindclosed walls. It is also important thatthe event be documented. Photos,audio, videos, poems, journals,paintings! Documentation iscrucial. The rest of the 100 ThousandPoets for Change want to hearwhat you have to say about changeand enjoy your creativity too!The documentation will be sharedthrough a blog/website that I will setup, a blog/website where groups canshare and announce event information,as well as post photos, videos,poetry art, and thoughts. But an event doesn’t have to involve tons ofpeople. It can be just you (the organizer) and your pet, on a street corner with a sign. Just let me know what you are planning! Every effort counts! Each local organization determineswhat it wants to focus on, somethingbroad like, peace, sustainability justice, equality or more specific Continued On Page 14

Contributed by: Janice SwiftWritten by: Mary Whelchel It can be a great puzzle to us whenwe can't understand why God hasn'tdone what seems to us so importantand so good. Have you ever thought about thefact that God may want to changeyour desire and then fulfill it? God sayshe'll give us the desires of our hearts,but that may mean that he changesthose desires first. When you thinkabout it, what difference does it make?If your desires are changed and thenfulfilled, you're a fulfilled person. Butmany times we're unwilling to allowhim to change us. W e single women tend to do that. W e have this enormous unfulfilled and natural desire to be married, and wecan't believe we could ever be happywithout that specific desire fulfilled.Y ou would never have convinced me years ago that I could be happybeing single. Never! But I can testifythat God can change those deepdesires, and when he does it, not onlyis it okay it's a marvelous contented life. Not second best, but full andexciting. Have you been giving God yourdesires list with clenched fists,refusing to give him permission tochange your desires? I want toencourage you today to unclenchthose fists and trust the God who Living with Unfulfilled Desires created you. He has good plans foryou, not disaster Y ou can let go of your desires, give him permission tochange them, and be absolutelyconfident that if he does, you will notlose, you will gain! Many times we miss God's richestblessings to us because we refuse toeven think about changing our desires.I know you believe it's impossible foryour unfulfilled desire to change, butjust be willing to let God do it if that ishis will. When you do that, you'verelinquished it and now the monkeyis of f your back. And please believe me; God is quite capable of changingyou and your desires, beyond yourwildest dreams. Then, sometimes our desires gounfulfilled because we're in God'swaiting room. Why does God put usin the waiting room? --First, because he gets ourattention that way W e tend to stop and listen and look up. --Second, we learn things in thewaiting room we'd never learn anyother way I don't know any effective Christian who hasn't spent significanttime waiting for God to answer But God doesn't run on a clock or onour schedules. And many times we must learn to wait for his answer all the time not knowing if he willanswer or not. “Then were there brought untohim little children, that he shouldput his hands on them, and pray .” Matt 19:13 Those children must have been glad in after days to remember thatJesus had laid His hands upon theirheads and blessed them. Sometimesthe remembrance even of a humanhand laid on the head in childhoodstays all through life, and is abenediction. A Christian man said late in his life that he could still feel the touch of hisdying mother ’ s hand on his head as she bade him farewell and asked himto promise to follow Christ. A boy was brought to his father ’ s bedside, and was “kissed and blessed and given to God.” All through his youth, when there came any temptation to dowrong, the thought would come, “No, I must not do this, for I am the boywho was kissed and blessed andgiven to God.” When, later in life, burdens pressed and he was aboutto yield to despair he would Editor: Sherlene Dawson Of fice T el: 804-4900 Cell: 626-8822 Publisher: Nyani K. Azueta August “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth” #42 George Price Highway Santa ElenaT own, Cayo District, Belize, CA The Childr en’ s Friend remember his father ’ s acts and words, and the remembrance would supporthim: “No; am I not the boy who was kissed and blessed and given toGod?” In the stress of life his mind at lastgave way and he spent years in the gloomy apartments of an insaneasylum. And thence in his brighter moments he would write to hisdaughter: “Here I am shut away and very lonely I have no one to sing to me as you used to do, — ‘Jesus, lover of my soul,’ or ‘Rock of Ages, clef t for me.’ — It seems very dark and hard; but yet I am the boy that was kissedand blessed and given to God.”Thus all through his life he wassustained and strengthened by theremembrance of his father ’ s last blessing. If all who have beenconsecrated to Christ, and have hadHis hand laid on them, would everremember that holy touch, how pureand true would it make their lives!

Just give me thebad news!” “W ell dear ,” said Eva cupping Bob’ s hand with her two hands, “I hate to have to tell you this, but itseems like your legs are going tohave to be taken off.” Bob, barely able to hold his voicefrom cracking croaked out, “Eva, what’ s the good news?” “The good news” said Eva happily “is that the gardener that was in here just before, said hemay be interested in buying allyour footwear from you!” A fellow’ s wife went missing and being that everyone knew that he andhis wife were in a big fight he wasaccused of murdering her anddisposing of the body When witness after witness came to the standtestifying to all sorts of horrible threatsthat the accused threatened his wifeand things were looking quite dim forthe accused the man’ s lawyer got up to the stand. “Ladies and Gentleman of the jury I have something quiteexciting to tell you, if you wouldall please direct your attentiontowards the door behind me on myleft you will see the supposedlydead women walk in on her owntwo feet.” There was a loud murmuring in thecourtroom as all eyes turned towardsthe door Lawyer T r ying T o Pr ove His Clients Innocence Backfir es “Ladies and Gentleman” said the lawyer after a few seconds ofanxious waiting, “T o be honest with you, Nobody is going to bewalking through the door however from the fact that youreyes all turned towards the doorit is quite obvious that you are notsure beyond the shadow of adoubt about my client’ s guilt.” T o the lawyer ’ s great surprise, the jury decided that the man was guilty “But how could you say that he is guilty? Didn’ t I prove it to you?” Questioned the lawyer “It is true that we all turned towards the door ,” one old lady explained, “but there was person who didn’t.” “Whose that?” Questioned the indignant lawyer “Y our client.” Came the reply Max was caught red handed by apolice officer in the very act ofburglarizing a store. He was quicklybrought to trial. “How do you plead?” asked the judge. “Y our honor ,” answered Max, “before I plead guilty or not guiltyI ask that the court kindly appoint Burglar Joke a lawyer to defend me.” “Max you were caught in the actual commission of a crime.What could any lawyer possiblysay in your defense?” “That’ s exactly my point, your honor ,” said Max. “I’m curious also to hear what he couldpossibly say!” Maya Angelou Everything In Everything In Everything In Everything In Everything In The Universe The Universe The Universe The Universe The Universe HasRhythm, HasRhythm, HasRhythm, HasRhythm, HasRhythm, Everything Dances.

The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis,acute coryza, head cold, or simplya cold) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract whichprimarily affects the nose. Symptomsinclude coughing, sore throat, runnynose, sneezing, and fever whichusually resolve in seven to ten days,with some symptoms lasting up tothree weeks. W ell over 200 virus strains are implicated in the cause ofthe common cold; the rhinoviruses arethe most common. Upper respiratory tract infectionsare loosely divided by the areasthey affect, with the common coldprimarily affecting the nose, the throat(pharyngitis) and the sinuses (sinusitis) occasionally involving either or both eyes via conjunctivitis.Symptoms are mostly due to thebody's immune response to theinfection rather than to tissuedestruction by the viruses themselves.The primary method of prevention isby hand washing with some evidenceto support the effectiveness ofwearing face masks. The commoncold may occasionally lead topneumonia, either viral pneumonia orsecondary bacterial pneumonia. No cure for the common coldexists, but the symptoms can betreated. It is the most frequentinfectious disease in humans with theaverage adult getting two to threecolds a year and the average childgetting between six and twelve. Theseinfections have been with humanitysince antiquity Signs and Symptoms The typical symptoms of a cold include cough, runny nose, nasalcongestion and a sore throat,sometimes accompanied by muscleache, fatigue, headache, and loss ofappetite. A sore throat is present in Common Cold Common Cold Common Cold Common Cold Common Cold about 40% of the cases and a coughin about 50%, while muscle acheoccurs in about half. In adults, a feveris generally not present but it iscommon in infants and youngchildren. The cough is usually mildcompared to that accompanyinginfluenza. While a cough and a feverindicate a higher likelihood ofinfluenza in adults, a great deal ofsimilarity exists between these twoconditions. A number of the viruses that cause the common cold mayalso result in asymptomaticinfections. The color of the sputum ornasal secretion may vary from clearto yellow to green and does notindicate the class of agent causing theinfection. Progression A cold usually begins with fatigue, a feeling of being chilled, sneezing anda headache, followed in a couple ofdays by a runny nose and cough.Symptoms may begin within 16 hoursof exposure and typically peak twoto four days after onset. They usuallyresolve in seven to ten days but somecan last for up to three weeks. Theaverage duration of cough is 18 daysand in some cases people develop apost-viral cough which can lingerafter the infection is gone. In children,the cough lasts for more than tendays in 35–40% of the cases andcontinues for more than 25 days in10%. Cause Coronaviruses are a group of viruses known for causing thecommon cold. They have a halo, orcrown-like (corona) appearance when viewed under an electronmicroscope. The common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratorytract. The most commonly implicatedvirus is a rhinovirus (30–80%) a type of picornavirus with 99 knownserotypes. Others include: humancoronavirus (~15%) influenza viruses (10-15%) adenoviruses (5%) human parainfluenza viruses, human respiratory syncytial virus,enteroviruses other than rhinoviruses,and metapneumovirus. Frequentlymore than one virus is present. Intotal over 200 different viral types areassociated with colds. T ransmission The common cold virus is typically transmitted via airborne droplets(aerosols) direct contact with infected nasal secretions, or fomites(contaminated objects) Which of these routes is of primary importancehas not been determined; however hand-to-hand and hand-to-surface-to-hand contact seems of moreimportance than transmission viaaerosols. The viruses may survive forprolonged periods in the environment(over 18 hours for rhinoviruses)and can be picked up by people'shands and subsequently carried totheir eyes or nose where infectionoccurs. T ransmission is common in daycare and at school due to theproximity of many children with littleimmunity and frequently poorhygiene. These infections are thenbrought home to other members ofthe family There is no evidence that recirculated air during commercialflight is a method of transmission.However people sitting in close proximity appear at greater risk.Rhinovirus-caused colds are mostinfectious during the first three daysof symptoms; they are much lessinfectious afterwards. W eather The traditional folk theory is that a cold can be "caught" by prolonged exposure to cold weather such as rain or winter conditions, which is how thedisease got its name. Some of theviruses that cause the common coldsare seasonal, occurring morefrequently during cold or wet weather The reason for the seasonality has notbeen conclusively determined. Thismay occur due to cold inducedchanges in the respiratory system,decreased immune response, and lowhumidity increasing viral transmissionrates, perhaps due to dry air allowingsmall viral droplets to disperse fartherand stay in the air longer It may be due to social factors, such as peoplespending more time indoors, nearan infected person, and specificallychildren at school. There is somecontroversy over the role of lowbody temperature as a risk factorfor the common cold; the majorityof the evidence suggests that itmay result in greater susceptibilityto infection. Other Herd immunity generated from previous exposure to cold viruses,plays an important role in limitingviral spread, as seen with youngerpopulations that have greater rates ofrespiratory infections. Poor immunefunction is also a risk factor fordisease. Insufficient sleep andmalnutrition have been associatedwith a greater risk of developinginfection following rhinovirusexposure; this is believed to be dueto their effects on immunefunction. Breast feeding decreases therisk of acute otitis media and lowerrespiratory tract infections amongother diseases and it is recommendedthat breast feeding be continued whenan infant has a cold. In the developedworld breast feeding may nothowever be protective against thecommon cold in and of itself.
