Paycation or Payscam: Belize’s New Certified Travel Agency 3

Introduction Two weeks ago, I saw that a lady posted on Facebook that she had completed a training to be a Certified Travel Agent. She appeared interested in doing bookings for Belizeans.

Certificate received by Belizean Today, I became suspicious when I saw another Belizean posted that he too had completed a program and is now a Certified Travel […]

Food & Water Watch’s comprehensive analysis of State Department diplomatic cables reveals a concerted strategy to promote agricultural biotechnology overseas, compel countries to import biotech crops and foods that they do not want, and lobby foreign governments — especially in […]
