VICTORY FOR #CONSERVATION IN #BELIZE: The Supreme Court today declared 6 offshore contracts to be unlawful and therefore null and void; says government followed improper procedure. The decision was handed down by Justice Oswal Legal. Observers say that their preliminary assessment is that the ruling has huge implications for one of the companies whose contract also includes onshore drilling.

Every day, we push ourselves out of our comfort zone to grow. On Shabbat, we relax, regenerate and let our souls be elevated.

Shabbat Shalom…שַׁבַּת שָׁלוֹם.

And looking forward to celebrating Israel's 65th birthday this weekend with friends in NYC.

Congratulations on beating the curse! You go girl! #Maasai woman made history.

Peris Tobiko, 42-year-old mother of four made history when she became the first Maasai woman elected to Kenya’s Parliament. Despite significant challenges, Tobiko defeated four men in the race to represent the Kajiado East constituency in Kenya’s Rift Valley province.

During Tobiko’s campaign, Maasai elders publicly declared that they would curse anyone who voted for her. Her opponents also urged community members not to vote for her, saying it defied their culture to elect women as leaders.

What a good show by the Maasai and the people of Kajiado East Kenya.

Money speaks volumes in #Belize. ACCUSED #PEDOPHILE: David Taylor is walking around free in Belize City right now until the next court date in April. Taylor was busted this week just as he was preparing to leave the peninsula. In his house, police found computers and hard drives containing pornographic material involving young boys from Belize as well as from countries such as #Afghanistan and #India. He was slapped with three offences—two counts of Aggravated Assault of an Indecent Nature and one count of Unnatural Crime—upon a thirteen year old minor of #Placencia Village.

The incidents occurred on March and August of 2012 where in court it was revealed that Taylor had carnal intercourse with the minor on the first occasion. Taylor initially pleaded guilty to the assault charges, but an unequivocal not guilty plea was entered by Magistrate Ed Usher who presided over the matter. Taylor applied and got bail from the Supreme Court on January eighteenth in the sum of five thousand dollars plus one surety for the same amount.

#Belize: A pharmacist in Benque Viejo del Carmen, Cesar Mendez, has pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault of an indecent nature. This follows a report that he inappropriately touched a 12 year old girl.

According to reports, Mendez, accompanied by his attorney Richard Dickey" Bradley, appeared in the Magistrate's Court on Thursday of last week where the plea was entered. The magistrate imposed a fine of $250 on each count, which means that Mendez was ordered to pay $500, bringing the case to an end.

World Autism Awareness Day is today, 2nd April. International attention is essential to addressing stigma, lack of awareness and inadequate support structures.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. They include autistic disorder, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome. With the May 2013 publication of the new DSM-5 diagnostic manual, these autism subtypes will be merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD.

ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.

What can we do? Let us continue to work to increase awareness, acceptance, respect and support.

The first natural gas from the Tamar offshore gas field arrives in #Israel for electricity generation. Israel has discovered enough natural gas to power the country for 150 years. I am proud that Israel is taking this important step toward energy independence.
