The Organization of American States (OAS) and UB are
partners in the delivery of a 72-hour course, conducted over 9
days, on "The Integration of Belize into the Multilateral and
Regional Trading System." The course began September 15 -
17, with other sessions occurring September 29 -October 1 and
October 13 -15, all at UB-Nova Graduate Room at the Faculty
of Management and Social Sciences in Belize City. The course
is familiarizing participants with the main trade issues at the
multilateral and regional levels, with special emphasis on the
needs of smaller economies. The approximately 25 participants
include top management personnel from such establishments
as the Belize Chamber of Commerce, the Radisson, UB,
shipping companies, government ministries and the private
sector. Topics: trade in services, multilateral and bilateral rules
for investment, trade facilitation and standards, market access
for goods, and small and vulnerable economies. Participants
will receive a certificate. The cost of the course, $100, covers
tuition, materials and lunch. OAS often runs similar courses
worldwide, and UB thanks the OAS representative in Belize,
Mrs. Kim Osborne, UB President Dr. Santos Mahung, and
UB's Dean of Enterprise Development Ms. Sylvia Cattouse for
enabling the offering of this course. The training will build
capacity in both government and private sector in Belize to
deal with trade matters.

Not to be outdone, UB's Belize City student government
also organized the usual Belize City UB posse truck and regalia for
that parade; unfortunately, due to inclement weather, the Belize
City parade was cancelled. However, the UB crowd, already all
I'Cl''i.' up, still attended the small ceremony and rally at the
P lKim.'ijl Park. The national theme was: Diverse Origins, Common
.lpirIat.iio:s; Together we Celebrate as Belizeans.

iiB Office of Budget and Financial Management reminds all
students who have outstanding balances that they are required to
pay their remaining balances in full at any Scotiabank Branch
countrywide or Scotiabank online if they have a Scotia account
ON or BEFORE October 31st, 2009. Failure to do
so may result in the students not being able to
sit their final exams. Thank you.

On September 17th 2009, UB celebrated its annual Patriotic
Day at the Belmopan Campus and on the 18th at the Belize
City campus. Addressing the audience in Belmopan were Sir
Colville Young, Governor General of Belize who was also the
first president of the now amalgamated University College of
Belize, one of the forerunners to UB, UB President Dr. Santos
Mahung, and Belmopan City Councilor Victor Perdomo who
deputized for His Lordship the Mayor Simeon Lopez. During
the event, UB honored its chosen Belizean patriot for the 2009
Independence celebrations. She is Dr. Corinth Morter-Leiws,
also a former UB president, and a well-known Belizean poet
whose "Tribute to the Belizean Flag" poem is presented
annually in schools. Dr. Corinth Morter Lewis also contributed
the 25th anniversary Independence Poem in 2006; she is
currently a Counselor for UB's Belize City and Punta Gorda
campuses. FEA's lecturer Elma Arzu gave her a sterling
introduction! Excellent original topical poetry was also
delivered by both Taren and by Jacklyn Burns; the latter is an
FEA student who teaches at Bmp Comprehensive and who has
published in local newspapers. In attendance was Queen of the
Bay 2009-2010, Reena Usher, who is also a UB student!

The UB Patriotic Day in Belize City was also a smashing
success! It was held at the FMASS campus. In addition to the
usual flag raising and patriotic dress contest, a best dressed
vehicle contest was also held. Lecturer Bernard Watler did a
wonderful job of directing the ceremonies and UB's chosen
patriot 2009, Dr. Corinth Morter-Lewis, participated. Guest
speaker was President of the Ntl. Kriol Council Myrna
Manzanares. Kudos to Stephen Sho, SG Bmp president,
Jamaal King, SG Bz City president, all the SG members, and
Sharon Palacio, Coordinator of Student Services, for these
wonderfully patriotic events! Thanks also to the Bmp and Bz
City Physical Plant and Public Safety staff who ably assisted
with the flag raising and other logistics.

Richard Genus

In February, the UB
Bulletin featured
student Rodney
Borland whose
unfortunate 2002
accident incapacitated
him, confining him to
a wheelchair. UB-
Toledo installed ramps
to make the campus
more accessible. In
this issue, we feature
two more students.

with a full scholarship from GOB, pursuing
a degree in primary education. Richard was
born with chronic glaucoma and saw many
challenging days, yet his thirst for
knowledge was his greatest desire. In
primary school he lost his sight completely.
Since then Richard has listened, retained
and done exams orally. He passed his PSE,
& graduated from T.C.C. with 6/6 CXC
passes. What Braille machine? Yes! That is
exactly how Richard feels. He uses the
Braille machine to read and write but
nobody else understands it, so he cannot
use it in school. Richard finds it difficult to
sit in class while lectures write formulas on
the board and he cannot see them. Richard
says being blind is bad enough, but being
uneducated is worse, hence the reason he is
not giving up on his studies. His message
to us: "Once you set your mind on what
you want, you must do your best and with
that you can overcome all obstacles despite
the situation."

Teresita Moh &
Dr. Perriott

Richard and
Teresita would
like to
encourage all
students to
keep focused
and not to give
up on their
dreams and
hopes no
matter what.

Kudos to Richard Genus, Teresita Moh and Rodney Borland for
their persistence and self determined will! There were times
when Rodney, Teresita and Richard felt like giving up but they
know that by their sacrifice, they are helping to pave the road for
students with similar or other limitations. UB is so proud of you!
Big kudos also to UB Toledo IT lecturer Ken Kapinski as he
sets out to find practical ways to more conveniently incorporate
teaching and learning for Richard and students like him.

academically. Her fears only grew
when it was time to start high school
in Belize City, because she felt she
was being taken out of her comfort
zone. Teresita has an associate's
degree in tourism and is currently
enrolled in the Social Work program
at UB's Belmopan campus. The
Office of Student Affairs is a big
help to her and especially the crew at
UB's Bookstore. They assist Teresita
with registration, getting around
campus and with any other
assistance they can offer. UB's
Student Services has outfitted her
with a special, voice activated
computer. Her textbooks, sponsored
by UB, are translated to Braille
courtesy of the BCVI.

Teresita also will soon be getting her
very own student volunteer escort.
In her free time she works at Hodies
Place in Cayo as cook and
sometimes works washing dishes.
She loves to sing and is a part of the
UB choir. Teresita says that being
visually impaired is NOT a particular
challenge as students are facing
challenges everyday: discrimination,
financial restraints and academic
challenges are common to all

UB's Basketballers in Cancun

Coach Kevin Siroki, UB's Basketball Coach, was chosen to be the country's coach
for the Belize National Team that took part in the COCABA Championship
Tournament held in Cancun from August 10 -14, 2009. Several UB Black Jaguars
basketball players were selected for the national team; however, only Stephen
"Muerte" Williams made the final cut as a reserve player. The games were hotly
contested, with Belize leading against Nicaragua from the outset, but then
dropping to a second place tournament finish in an exciting final that had the
entire country of Belize glued to their TV or radio for the LIVE broadcasts. Kudos (L-R) FIBA instructor Nelson Isley and
UB's basketball coach Kevin Siroki in
to Coach Siroki and Coach Darren Bovell who assisted and of course to our Black UB basketball coach Kevin rok
Cancun, Mexico
Jaguars! While in Mexico, Coach Siroki met with FIBA representatives

On September 24, the UB Black Jaguars football team, in preparation for the
CSUCA games next March, played its first game outside of Belize! It was
against the University of Quintana Roo (UQROO), and UB won the game 5-0.
In less than perfect weather conditions, the Black Jaguars roared to an early
start in the 11th minute with Marcilio slipping a shot past the UQROO Keeper.
Two minutes later a beautifully executed cross found its way into the net again,
this time off the boot of Ellington. The flood gates then opened as several other
players got into the action, giving the host a difficult time containing UB's
attack. Precision passing from the flanks by Borland and Yatz and equally
beautiful finishing from the 18yrds box led to three (3) additional goals in the
23rd, 77th and 83rd minutes by Lewis, Padilla and Castillo before the referee
blew the final whistle. It was an enormous team effort both in attack and
defense and a big shout out to the UB players for that.

UB's football team manager, Mr. Ian Sangster, sends out a special note of
thanks to the Lord for a safe and incident-free trip and to Coach Paul Morgan,
whose tireless efforts with the team over the past 18 months led to victories
over semi pro teams such as Verdes and Texmar Trendsetters. UB will be
facing the return match against UQROO in Belize October 12th. The UB
community is welcome to come support. Go team go!

Home is a documentary that seeks to show the diversity of life on
earth and the balance of the planet. The event started at 4 p.m.
and concluded at 7:30 p.m., and it was held under the
distinguished patronage of Her Excellency Blandine Kreiss,
French Ambassador to Belize, and the United Nations
Development Fund (UNDP). Immediately following the movie
was a panel discussion. Panelists included Earl Green (UNDP),
Ann Gordon (GOB UNFCCC Focal Point), Nydia Bood (WWF),
and meteorologist Mr. Ramon Frutos. Also present at the day's
event was President Dr. Santos Mahung who addressed the
audience during the opening ceremonies. Over 150 students were
in attendance. Home is a 2009 documentary by Yann Arthurs-
Bertrand. The film is almost entirely composed of aerial shots of
various places on Earth. It was released in June, opening in 181
countries; it shows the diversity of life on Earth and humanity's
impact on the ecological balance of the planet. Kudos to UB's
Cecy Castillo of the FST, Chair Juliane Pasos, Betty Cheng and
all those who assisted.

It has now become a tradition! Following last year's
excellent Reproductive and Health Fair, the Faculty of
Nursing, Allied Health and Social Work is holding
another this year on Wednesday, October 21 at the UB
Belmopan campus on the lawn next to the Admin
Building. It is from 9 -2. Come out and get information
from booths about cancer and about Sexually
Transmitted Infections (STIs); get tests done for breast
cancer screening, blood pressure and blood glucose
levels (sugar). The fourth year Bachelor Nursing
Students are spearheading this function. Contact person

particularly the post Simon Bolivar era, one marked by the power of the Chieftains in Venezuela. Mr. Yanez
Deleuze outlined the concept of the "Chieftain," beginning with the 1830-1846 period of subjugation and
control, followed by the 1859-1870 Federal War that tried to change the concept of liberalism as the way to
build a republic. Next was the Blue Revolution and rise of Venezuela's Guzman Blanco who created a national
army, an important difference to the concept of the Chieftains which was one that had avoided formal
institutions. The period of rule with Joaquin Crespo followed; thereafter nationalist rule became more
