THE Caribbean Community
(CARICOM) will maintain
the lobby against changes in
the European Union sugar
regime which will impact
severely on Guyana and
other sugar-producing
countries, trade ministers
said after a meeting here.
In a statement Friday
night, the ministers said they
were encouraged by comments
from EU Trade Commissioner
Peter Mandelson who flew here

that we accompany this with a
robust local adaptation
process," he said.
"We will put forward
development assistance
measures to increase the
competitiveness of the industry
in sugar producing countries or
to support its diversification,"
Mandelson added.
He said the European
Commission would publish a
draft action plan soon to help
nations to be affected by the
reforms.
"The EU's support must
come into play as early as
possible, so as to anticipate
rather than simply cushion
change," Mandelson said.
Caribbean representatives,
who have warned the EU sugar
regime reforms will have
"devastating socio-economic
consequences" on their
countries, greeted the assurances
cautiously.
"I am encouraged but I am
wary ... until I see delivery,"
CARICOM Secretary General
Edwin Carrington told the
Chronicle.
Mandelson said the EU
must act quickly to help ease
the impact of the proposed
reforms of its sugar policy on
ACP sugar producers.

The CARICOM Council
for Trade and Economic
Development (COTED) met at
Le Meridien Pegasus hotel
Friday and was updated on the
results of the meeting with the
EU trade chief, "at which there
was much discussion on sugar,
bananas, rum and rice", the
statement said.
COTED noted remarks by
Mandelson that the changes
taking place in the EU sugar
quota system should be neutral
in their impact on exporting
countries.
"It was also noted that the
EU official stressed that the
EU's support for sugar
exporters must come into play
as early as possible so as to
anticipate rather than to cushion
change", the ministers said.
The state-owned Guyana
Sugar Corporation (Guysuco)
said the EU reforms "would be
a mammoth setback for
Guyana's major industry and
for the country's employment,
foreign exchange and overall
development prospects."
In a press release, the
corporation said the proposals
"threaten the greatest blow to
this country's trade in recent
times."
Guysuco said proposed
changes to the EU sugar regime
would mean a reduction in
revenue for the Guyana sugar
industry of G$4.4 billion in each
of the years 2005/06 and 2006/
07 to be followed by an annual
reduction of G$7.4 billion after
that.
"In the context of
Guyana's very small and fragile
economy, the loss of revenue is
hugely significant and will lead
to devastating socio-economic
consequences given the major
role played by sugar in this

country's economy", the
corporation noted.
Mandelson says the EU is
facing internal pressures to_
change its sugar regime because
it is paying three times the
world price for its sugar.
Last year, after a complaint
from Brazil, the world's largest
sugar producer, the World Trade
Organisation (WTO) ruled that
the EU was illegally dumping
millions of tonnes of subsidized
sugar on world markets.
The EU plans to allow
some preferential access for the
ACP to continue through
economic partnership
agreements (EPAs) now under
negotiation.
Mandelson said the EPA
process will be monitored "to
check continuously whether or
not it is delivering the right
results to build up local
capacity, and that the process
really does constitute the true
economic partnerships I insist
on for these agreements."
He met President Bharrat
Jagdeo Thursday and flew out
Friday afternoon after visiting
sugar operations in East
Berbice.
The CARICOM Secretariat
the COTED discussions on
bananas took place against the
background of increasingly
complex issues including the
threatened shift from a quota to
a tariff regime.
Other issues affecting
Caribbean banana producers
include the diminishing
access to the European
market and developments in
technology which could
enhance production and
provide some compensation for
the exposure to natural
disasters and other
environmentally imposed risks.

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE January 9, 2005


Editorial Viewpoint
By Rickey Singh


Correcting gross


disservice

IN HIS New Year address to the nation, President
Bharrat Jagdeo considered it necessary to refer to a
litany of complaints he had received in 2004, during vis-
its to various communities, about failures that could and
should have been avoided in relation to Implementation
of government projects and provision of services.
It was quiteienlightening to hear a head of state
choosing such an occasion to bring to the nation's at-
tention how people are being treated unfairly or short-
changed in the governance process, with the hope for
a speedy correction of such negative attitudes and
practices. ..
"As I move around Guyana", said the President,
"I continue to receive complaints about the. unrespon-
siveness of some government functionaries towards
members of the public delays in ferry services, long
waiting times at some public health institutions; flood-
ing because of negligence; of pensioners waiting for
years for waivers from payment of water rates for
which they are eligible; endless woes of lack of water
supply, despite my government spending millions in that
sector...
"I am deepy concerned also when many poor
necessary and made to pay for services that should


be provided free. I have instructed the Minister of
Education to investigate these complaints and take
necessary action...
"More recently, teachers in a few Regions not
being paid by the Treasury wages and salaries be-
fare the.Christmas season".
President Jagdeo then asked a most perti-
nent question, one that should be of concern to ev-
ery Ministerand Ministry; Permanent Secretaries,
Boards and Chief Executive Officers of state corpo-
rations as well as relevant trade union officials aware
of their own responsibilities:

PERTINENT QUESTION

"Why should so many people", asked the
President, "be disadvantaged because a few did not
do their duty?" This disservice, the President de-
clared, "must be reduced or eradicated this year..."
Well, having so articulated the complaints en-
countered, the President must now ensure that ALL
ministries and corporations go on the offensive to
effectively curb, as soon as possible, all such "dis-
service".
They must ensure necessary remedial mea-
sures to the identified complaints so that communi-
ties and individuals are routinely provided with effi-
ciency, the services and facilities to which they are
entitled, and which the government continues to pro-
vide within the framework of its overall programmes
and strategies to improve the welfare and living stan-
dard of the people.
The buck-passing exercise, the callous disre-
gard for service to the public must not be allowed to
become a feature of this or any other society of our
region at a time of grave challenges for survival.
Problems of disservice, as referred to by
-e fl ot..ma.rotbe peculiar to-Guyana,f-


consideration and where, also, unwholesome atti-
tudes and negative practices of a minority often cloud
the healthy behaviour and good performance of the
majority.
This second working week into 2005 is a good
time to make a change for the better in terms of serv-
ing the public. It is nbt a time for blame-shifting.
Rather, to encourage a new work ethic in every sec-
tor, including the media, that could be emulated and
help the country along the road to enhanced social and
economic development.
It may also be an appropriate time for what is
viewed as an overdue ministerial reshuffle or minis-
terial changes to the President's Cabinet.

Eyes on USA and

global warming


IT was inevitable, follow-
ing the widespread regional
devastation suffered in 2004
from hurricanes, earth-
quakes, mudslides and floods,
and climaxing with the un-
precedented tsunami disaster
in Asia, that the Caribbean,
like nations around the
world, would become more fo-
cused in 2005 on coping with
natural disasters and the im-
pacts of climate change.
Tomorrow in
Mauritius, the Caribbean region
will have a high profile at the
'United Nations International
Meeting to Review the Imple-
mentation of the Programme of
Action for the Sustainable De-
velopment of Small Island De-
veloping States'.
It is a long name for
what is better known within our
Caribbean Community as the
'Barbados Programme of Ac-
tion' for SIDS (Small Islands
Developing States) that resulted
from the historic UN conference
held in Barbados in 1994.
An estimated 2000
participants are expected for the
four-day meeting in Mauritius,
among them heads of states and
government, ministers,-diplo- -


mats. scientists and environmen-
talists.
The Mauritius meeting
coincides with new and vibrant
calls for the urgent creation of early
tsunami warning systems in this
region and elsewhere, in the wake
of what's viewed as the world's
single greatest natural disaster of
our time as occurred in Asia.

tary General Kofi Annan. has not

of the US$3B pledged aid to meet
the dire needs of the Asian tsu-
nami victims. He has also been
influential in stressing the neces-
sity for an early tsunami warn-
ing system for the Indian Ocean.
Here in our own re-
gion, the Barbados-based Carib-
bean Disaster Emergency Re-
sponse Agency (CDERA), in
pointing to the Asian tsunami
disaster, has urged that member
states give priority attention to
financial support for the region's
active involvement in an early)


tsunami warning system.
Coordinator of
CDERA, Jeremy Collymore.
noted: "The events of the Indian
Ocean underwater earthquake
have again emphasised the vul-
nerability of the Small Island De-
veloping States (SIDS) and
should furtherjustify the call for
their special consideration in
support of sustainable develop-
ment interventions...
"It also highlights", he
said. "the importance of address-
ing critical threats to the region
other than the hurricane hazard..."

vironmental polluter, passion
has once again been aroused,
against the backdrop of the In-
dian Ocean tsunamis, over its
stubborn refusal to ratify the
United Nations-brokered
Kyoto Protocol on climate
change, even as scientists and
environmentalists differ over
linking tsunamis with global


\ airing.
Next month, the
Kyoto Protocol is scheduled to
come into force, binding
industrialized nations to reduce
their carbon dioxide emissions
to the levels of what existed in
1990.
While the USA under
the George W Bush presidency
remains adamant in its opposi-
tion to ratifying the Kyoto Pro-
tocol similar to its attitude in
denying America's recognition
of the International Criminal
Court a finn warning came last
week from the chief scientific
adviser to the British Govern-
ment of Prime Minister Tony
Blair on climate change.
In an article in the Fi-
nancial Times that examined
how a divided world could fail


to effectively deal with the very
challenging problem of global
warming in 2005, Sir David King
was quoted as observing:
"Climate change is the
most severe problem that we are
facing today, more serious even
than the threat of terrorism". Fail-
ure to address the problem, he
stressed, "will result in catastro-
phe...."

PRESIDENT GEORGE W
BUSH

IMAGE PROBLEM

Getting President Bush
on board for climate change-readi-
ness with ratification of the
Kyoto Treaty would be a major
challenge in 2005 of his closest
partner in the pre-emptive war
on Iraq, Prime Minister Blair,
who is currently organising an in-
ternational science conference for
next month and another in March
that would focus on the challenges
of global warming.
Stung by criticisms of
"stinginess" in its initial emer-
gency aid response to the Asian
tsunami disaster. President
George Bush's administration
was to quickly move to repair its
image with a revised commitment
of US$350 million second only
to Japan's US$500 million, until


Australia then decided a few
days ago to increase its aid com-
mitment to some US$800 mil-
lion.
Using its muscle as
the world's most powerful mili-
tary-industrial complex, the
USA has been showing a most
dominant profile in emergency
relief operations for the Asian
tsunami victims.
Although not offi-
cially verbalised, the Bush ad-
ministration would be keen to
make use of the tsunami disas-
ter to improve its image in a part
of the world where hostility to
US policies runs deep. espe-
cially among Muslims.
Among the high pro-
file personalities in television
images sharing grief with vic-
tims of tsunami-wrecked com-
munities was the
administration's best known
"dove". Colin Powell. who is
leaving as US Secretary of State
following President Bush's in-
auguration for a second term
later this month.
But a question of im-
mediate relevance is what kind
of natural disaster will it take
for President Bush to cease be-
ing so very stubborn against the
United States also ratifying the
Kyoto Treaty which provides
the basis for a collective re-
sponse to global warming that
so many nations, among them
America's leading western al-
lies, accept as a major problem
to be tackled?
For us in the Car-
ibbean, right now, we must
await the outcome of this
week's international meet-
ing in Malaysia on the Bar-
bados Programme of Action
for Small Island Developing
States (SIDS).

Though CSME inevitable,


region must examine its im-


pact on people -CARICOM officials


THOUGH the Caribbean
Community (CARICOM)
cannot stop, reverse or even
slow the process of imple-
mentation of its Single Mar-
ket and Economy (CSME),
the region must examine evi-
dence regarding the impact
on people and take appropri-
ate steps to bring relief to the
affected.
This is the view of
CARICOM's Deputy Secre-
tary General, Ambassador Lolita
Applewhaite. Her com-
ments, delivered at the opening


of the 18th meeting of the Coun-
cil For Trade and Economic De-
velopment (COTED) on Tues-
day at Le Meridien Pegasus,
were premised on citizens' fear
about the loss of jobs held by
nationals and concerns that non-
national companies are increas-
ingly occupying what was tra-
ditionally held to be domestic
markets.
The CSME envisions
the pooling of resources, and
bringing together markets of in-
dividual member states. It in-
volves the free movement of


goods, services, capital and
people among member states.
COTED Chairman,
Mr. Michael Jong Tjein Fa,
Minister of Trade and Industry
of Suriname, added that
globalisation brings with it ex-
treme pressures on small econo-
mies, leaving the region no
choice but to integrate in the
shortest possible timeframe.
By widening and
deepening the integration pro-
cess, the regional grouping is
creating a larger market, econo

Guyanese contractor il


repairs historic pier


in Barbados


IN WHAT is seen as a further
sign of Guyanese businesses
reaching out into the Carib-
bean market, a small
Georgetown contractor has
landed a job to repair an his-
toric pier at a prestigious ho-
tel in Barbados.
Michael Yearwood
and his firm have been given the
contract to undertake "a com-
plete rebuild" of the pier at the
Grand Barbados Hotel jutting
out into Carlisle Bay on the
south east tip of the island. The
pier is nearly 200 years old. It


is considered by conservation-
ists to be part of the island's
cultural heritage.
The project entailed
Yearwood, his 'main man' and
fellow Guyanese Fitzroy
Goodasaul, and Barbadian help

parts of the largely wooden
pier. They were replaced with
Guyana-sources greenheart and
purpleheart wood fastened with
stainless steel bolts and angle
metal. Greenheart railings were
also installed.
The walkway, which


leads to one of the hotel's restau-
rants, 'The Schooner Room', was
covered with greenheart tongue
and groove wood. The Guyanese
are working with an engineer to
ensure all the specifications were
up to par. The pier, which is ap-
proximately 25 metres long, has
in the past been damaged by
rough seas from a passing hurri-
cane.
Speaking with the Sun-
day Chronicle, Yearwood said it
was his first job overseas. He had
worked on many projects in
Guyana as a sub-contractor. He

How did he see the job

Guyanese contractor

repairs historic pier...


(From page 10)
old former policeman in
the CID Department, said he
was also grateful that manager
of the hotel, Mr. Louis Ward,
had placed trust in him and
his team to undertake and
complete the job. The hotel
had been chosen by the
Guyana Office for Investment
(GO-INVEST) to mount the
successful Guyana trade expo-
sition earlier in the year.
In an interview, Ma-
jor Michael Hartland of the
Barbados Defence Force said
the pier was once part of the
British colonial fortifications
in the area which include the
present BDF barracks at the
nearby Garrison Savannah. It
was near the engineering depot
and the pier was used to
offload munitions and other
materials from ships anchored
in Carlisle Bay. The pier was
probably in operation around
the early part of the 18th cen-


tury, he added. The structure,
at the end of the pier, was built
in the last century, when an-
other hotel, the Aquatic Club,
occupied the site.
The Guyana Honor-
ary Consul in Barbados,
Norman Faria, said he was glad
to see Mr. Yearwood get the
job.
"The government of
Guyana does not feel that big
firms, capable as they are,
should only get contracts or
get the bulk of the work. The
work must be spread out so
that small, medium and
larger firms get a slice of the
pie, according to if they are
tooled up and manned to do
the job. I believe this is be-
ing done. It is encouraging to
see Mike and his team tak-
ing on this challenging job
on the historic pier through
his own initiative. From what
I have seen on my visits to the
worksite they have made
Guyana proud

By John Bassier

ALMOST 30 years ago, I
stated that there was evidence
that Georgetown was sinking.
In recent years, the
recurrent and worsening
flooding of the city provides
added evidence to support this
view.
The sinking or the land
subsidence is due to the
extraction of deep groundwater
for potable water supply. Every
day millions of gallons of
groundwater are pumped from
below the city from depths
between 1,000 and 2,000 feet.
This water is being mined,


LEAP Invites applications for tenancy to the Business
Incubator

The Linden Economic Advancement Programme (LEAP), a programme of the
Government of Guyana and financed by the European Union, is assisting the
local private sector of Region 10 in creating and expanding businesses. One of
the core activities of the programme is the establishment of a (managed)
Business Incubator for businesses in the start-up phase of their operation. The
LEAP Business Incubator is the first of its kind in Guyana and is strategically
located in the commercial centre of Linden Republic Avenue.

Business Incubation nurtures businesses in the start-up phase by providing
managed workspaces at affordable rates and support services such as training,
technical assistance and marketing. Incubator tenants, therefore, benefit from
relevant and affordable resources and services while operating in an
environment that helps create opportunities for business networking and other

that is, the water-bearing
formations (aquifers) are not
replenished or recharged by
percolating rainwater because
the aquifers are deep and are
sealed by the over-lying
impervious clay. So, as water is
pumped out, the material above
moves downwards to fill the
space that was occupied by the
water. This is what causes the
subsidence.
In recent years more wells
have been drilled in the
Georgetown area and increasing
amounts of water are being
extracted. It is likely that this
would have aggravated the
problem.
Land subsidence is an
irreversible process; the
environmental damage done
cannot be repaired. The only
way to avoid land subsidence is
to stop pumping-out the
groundwater. This may sound
impractical but it is the only
long-term solution.
Another issue that is
particularly relevant to the
flooding of Georgetown and the
Guyana coastline as a whole is
"Sea Level Rise"..
Today, climatologists
around the world agree that
there is global warming and
warn of its consequences,
which include Sea Level
Rise. If Georgetown is to face
the double danger of Land
subsidence and Sea Level
Rise then it's not too early to
start thinking of the actions
needed.
Measurements to
determine the amount or rate of
subsidence could prove to be a.
very difficult task. Precise
surveys or levelling are tied to.
a fixed point of reference or
datum point. In Guyana, the
national datum is a point fixed
to the Lighthouse at the north-
western edge of the city. As
such, it is sinking as well and
cannot therefore be used as a


sews


of Crr'll classic


point of reference.
ALTERNATIVE SOURCES
OF WATER

The flooding and
groundwater abstraction are
inter-linked and therefore the
groundwater problem needs to
be addressed.
I suggested earlier that the
way to avoid further subsidence
is stop the extraction of deep
groundwater in the Georgetown
area. Of course this is
impractical in the short-tern but
it is certainly feasible in the
long-term.
There is no shortage of
water in Guyana. The Upper
Sands aquifer is known to be
recharged (This aquifer
outcrops as "White Sand" area
in the Socsdyke-Timehri area
and beyond) and represents an
inexhaustible source of
groundwater if exploited outside
the Georgetown area where it is
saline. (The Americans are going
to Mars in search of water why
can't Guyanese go a few extra
miles?)
True, this water has a
high iron content but this is
easily removed by standard
water treatment technology.
About 90% of Guyana's
potable water supply is
abstracted from the coastal
artesian basin but little is known
about this vital resource. Most
importantly, we need to know
the recharge conditions, the
connectivity with the sea and
the existence, if any, of other
aquifers.
Knowledge of the
connection with the sea is
important because of the risk
of sea-water contamination.
In Suriname, where the
hydrogeological conditions
are similar, if not.identical,
being part of the same system,

FISHING IN THE SCHOOLYARD: Chronicle Chief Photographer, Cullen Bess-Nelson caught students of St. Agnes Primary
School in the City trying to catch the fish in their flooded schoolyard on the first day of school.


Is Georgetown sinking?


(From page 12)
a number of wells had to be
abandoned in recent years
because of sea-water
contamination. This should
have set off the alarm bells in
Guyana but it seems that no
one is listening.
Several recommendations
for a detailed study of the
groundwater conditions have


been made to the government
dating back more than 30
years but no action has been
taken.
Yet elaborate plans have
been drawn up to further exploit
this resource. [I personally
recommended a groundwater
study in the 1970s as Chief
Hydrometeorological Officer
and more recently in 1992 as a
WMO Adviser].


The cleaning and dredging
of drainage channels might offer
some temporary relief; the real
problem is deep down.

mies of scale and many
opportunities for the people of
the Community, he said.
CARICOM mem-
ber states have all indicated
that they are on track to meet
the December 31, 2005 dead-
line for implementation of the
CSME. Next month, in
Georgetown, Jamaica,
Trinidad and Tobago and Bar-
bados are to sign the agree-
ment to bring the CSME into
force.
But recently, several
issues were raised which sug-
gest that there is still some in-
sularity as well as uncertainty
with regard to the CSME.
Earlier in the week,
the media exposed the plight
of a Guyanese journalist, Clive
Bacchus, who has been work-
ing in St. Kitts for the past
seven years, but who could
lose his job by month-end be-
cause of tighter restrictions
over work permit renewals in
the island.
Bacchus, who is the
General Manager of the pri-
vately-owned WINFM, said
that his request for a renewal
of his work permit in the fed-
eration was refused. He re-


cei\ed a letter from the island,'
permanent Secretary in the Min-
istry of National Security calling
on the post to be advertised to
ensure there are no qualified na-
tionals capable of serving in the
position. He has until January 31
to legally work on the island
should someone more qualified
be found for the job. According
to Bacchus, the new request has
stunned him since the rule usu-
ally applied only to first time for-
eign nationals.
The free movement of
persons, initially open to four
categories of skilled persons
which include media workers, is
to be facilitated by the elimina-
tion of the need for passports and
work permits, facilitation at im-
migration points, parity in aca-
demic qualifications and
harmonisation and transferability
of Social Security benefits.
The Guyana Press As-
sociation (GPA) and the Associa-
tion of Caribbean Media Work-
ers (ACM) have issued state-
ments in which they recorded
their displeasure at the treatment
of Bacchus. The ACM
has also contended that the situ-
ation constitutes a blow to the
best intentions of CARICOM
member states that have openly
declared their support CSME.

eration of Trade Unions
(JCTU) Senator Dwight Nelson
is of the view that the
workforce there may not be
prepared for the competitive
nature of the CSME.
An article carried in
the Jamaica Observer and re-
printed in yesterday's edition of
the Guyana Chronicle quoted
Nelson as saying that most of
the Jamaican labour force has
no training. He said that "inef-
ficient workplaces and back-
ward management" only serves
to compound the problem.
"The fact is that 74
per cent of our labour force
have had no training whatsoever,
neither vocational, certification,
or in house training of any form.
How are our workers going to
compete with those from the
other islands? Our workforce is
going to be at a very serious
disadvantage," Nelson said.
He suggested that the
country do a serious manpower
audit in terms of the available
skills, the level of training and
in specific areas as a matter of
urgency.
According to Nelson,
the country's workforce was
not properly prepared to make
the best use of whatever oppor-
tunities would arise from the
implementation of the CSME
agreement.
Late last year, indica-
tions of a pending hostile take-
over of beverage conglomerate,
Banks DIH Ltd. by Trinidadian
firm, Ansa McAl led to protests
and a flood of letters to news-
papers on the pros, and mostly
cons, of such a move.
The General Workers
Union (GWU) which raplx ts
BANKS DIH workers ha said
that the proposed takeover.
would put Guyana in jeopardy.
The Union's President, Mr.


Norris \Vtter, predicted tha
workers would be out of job
and some $3B which the com
pany contributes to the nations
economy through corporate an
consumption tax would be lost
A number o
organizations including th
Guyana Agricultural Worke
Union (GAWU), and the Afr
can Cultural Development Ass
citation (ACDA) had pledge
their solidarity to Banks DIH.
Ansa McAl, produ
ers of Carib beer, later stat
that they had made no offer t
acquire the majority shares i
the Guyanese-owned company
Those issues notwith
standing, Ambassado
Applewhaite has declared 200
to be the "Year of the Singl
Market" and noted that com
pleting the legal framework fo
the CSME had been at the cen
tre of attention in 2004. The re
vised Treaty has been ratifiec
by all but three members states
She said that comr
pleting the CSME is the onl)
viable option in the immediate
and foreseeable future. Impor
tant issues for the CSME fo
this year include Financial Ser
vices Policy Harmonisation an
Capital Market Integration.
In making the CSME
reality, the ambassador states
that the instruments for hassle
free travel have been introduced
throughout the market and com
mon lines for all CARICOM Na
tionals have been established a
all Immigration Points of Entry.
According t
Applewhaite the disappoint
ments have been the unavoid

Although it is not known
when this will happen, Head of
the Division of Geological

Guyana, Mr. Evan Radhay
Persaud, feels Guyana will
"eventually" face the
consequences of a tsunami.
"Kick-'em-Jenny is

THE terrible earthquake/tsu-
nami disaster, along coastlines
of the Indian Ocean, left tens
of thousands dead and many
times more people homeless
and weakened.
Front page news stories
swept the U.S. corporate media
-12,000 dead, 40,000, 60,000
and 100,000 made progressive
day by day headlines.
Twenty-four hour TV news
provided minute by minute up-
dates with added photos and live
aerial shots of the effected re-
gions.
As the days unfolded, per-
sonal stories of survival and loss
were added to the overall cover-
age. Unique stories such as the
20-day-old miracle baby found
floating on a mattress, and the
eight-year-old who lost both
parents and later found by her
uncle, were human interest fea-
tures.
Individualised reports from
Americans caught in the catas-
trophe made national news and
numbers of Europeans, and
North Americans involved were
a key part of the continuing
story.
U.S. embassies set up
hotlines for relatives of possible
victims to seek information.

defences, since most of the coast
lies in a shadow zone, produced
by the geographical location and
extent of Trinidad and Tobago.
Kick-'em-Jenny is an active
submarine volcano, located six
miles (10 km) north of Grenada
with a basal diameter of about
three miles (five km) and rises
about 4,300 feet (1,300 m)
above the sea floor.
"The first recorded account
of activity at the volcano was
that of an eruption in July 1939,
which went on to erupt 10 times
since then and the most recent
in 1990, making it one of the
most active in the region,"
Persaud said.
He said Kick 'em Jenny poses
a direct threat to commercial
shipping and pleasure-craft, even
during periods of no visible surface
activity.
Volcanic eruptions in the
Eastern Caribbean have been
known to be preceded by some


Quickly added into the corpo-
rate media mix was coverage on
how the U.S. was responding
with relief aid and dollars.
In Crawford, Texas, Presi-
dent Bush announced that he had
formed an international coalition
to respond to the massive tsu-
nami disaster.
The U.S. corporate media
coverage of the Indian Ocean
tsunami disaster, for most
Americans, was shocking, and
emotional.
Empathic Americans, with
the knowledge that a terrible
natural disaster of huge signifi-
cance to hundreds of thousands
of people had occurred, wanted to
help in any way they could.
Church groups held prayer ses-
sions for the victims, and the Red
Cross received an upsurge of do-
nations.
The U.S. corporate media
coverage of the tsunami disaster
exposes a huge hypocrisy in the
U.S. press.
Left uncovered this past
year was the massive disaster
that has befallen Iraqi civilians.
More than 100,000 civilians have
died since the beginning of the
U.S. invasion and hundreds of
thousands more are homeless
and weakened.
In late October 2004, the
British Lancet medical jour-


period of precursory activity,
however.
Persaud pointed out that a
suitably designed monitoring
network will detect such activity
thereby giving advance warning
of eruptions.
A Volcano Monitoring
Network is performing such a
function and serves as a tool to
investigate the characteristics of
not just imminent, but also
ongoing eruptions, he explained.
He said the network and
warning system will not
exclusively minimise the risk
posed by the volcano, but the
backbone of the network is an
array of sensitive seismic
stations designed and configured
to provide real-time data to
detect, locate and further
parameterize a range of
earthquakes occurring during
volcanic unrest.


nal published a scientific sur-
vey of households in Iraq that
calculated more than 100,000
civilians, mostly women and
children, have died from war
related causes.
The study, formulated and
conducted by researchers at the
Bloomberg School of Public
Health at the Johns Hopkins
University and the College of
Medicine at Al Mustansiriya
University in Baghdad, involved
a complex process of sampling
households across Iraq to com-
pare the numbers and causes of
deaths before and after the inva-
sion in March 2003.
The mortality rate in these
families worked out to five per
1,000 before the invasion and
12.3 per 1,000 after the invasion.
Extrapolate the latter figure to
the 22 million population of
Iraq, and you end up with
100,000 total civilian deaths.
The most common cause of
death was aerial bombing fol-
lowed by strokes and heart at-
tacks. Recent civilian deaths in
Fallujah would undoubtedly add
significantly to the total.
The Iraqi word for disaster
is museeba. Surely the lose of life
from war in Iraq is as significant
a meseeba as the Indian Ocean
tsunami, yet where is the U.S.
corporate media coverage of


According to Persaud, Kick-
'em-Jenny and other volcanoes
in the arc are associated with a
subduction zone, which is
formed by an oceanic plate
created at the Mid-Atlantic
Ridge, as it is pushed under the
Caribbean Plate. (The outer
surface of the earth is made of
12 major plates and several
smaller plates. These plates
move towards each other,
(convergent boundaries), away
from each other (spreading or
divergent boundaries) or slide
past each other (transform
boundaries).
"Volcanic activity in the
Atlantic Ocean is also
occurring in the Azores, the
Cape Verde Islands and
Canary Islands. In fact, in
January 2004, the main island
of the Azores archipelago was
jolted by eight small


thousands of dead and home-
less?
Where are the live aerial TV
shots of the disaster zones and
the up-close photos of the vic-
tims? Where are the survivor
stories the miracle child who
lived though a building collapsed
by U.S. bombs and was rescued
by neighbours?
Where are the government's
official press releases of regret
and sorrow? Where is the inter-
national coalition for relief of ci-
vilians in Iraq and the upsurge in
donations for Red Cross inter-
vention?
Would not Americans. if
they knew, be just as caring
about Iraqi deaths as they are for
the victims of the tsunami?
The U.S. corporate media
has published Pentagon state-
ments on civilian deaths in Iraq
as unknown and dismissed the
Lancet Medical Journal study.
It seems U.S. media con-
cerns are for victims of natural
disasters, while the man-made
disasters, such as the deliberate
invasion of another country by
the U.S., are better left unre-
ported.

earthquakes and some three
hundred aftershocks,"
Persaud recalled.
"Everybody knows about
Kick-'em-Jenny but Guyana
faces a much greater threat from
the La Palma volcano located in
the Canary Islands," he added.
The Canary Islands are a
group of seven major volcanic
islands that extend for almost
300 miles (500 km) east to west
about 60 miles (100 km) off the
coast of northwest Africa.
Volcanic activity of the
island group spans 20 million
years and becomes progressively
older to the east, while the age
for the main subaerial shield
phase for Gran Canaria is about
14 million years.
According to Persaud,
volcanism in the Canary Islands
is associated with the transition
from continental (Africa) to
oceanic (Atlantic) lithosphere
(crust of the earth) within the
Africa plate, the effects of the
tectonics (earth's structural
features) of the nearby Atlas
Mountains and the very slow
movement (about one cm per
year for the last 60 million years)
of the African plate.
La Palma is a
stratovolcano (a volcano
composed of both lava flows
and pyroclastic material) and
is the largest of the western
Canary Islands. It stretches
21,320 ft (6500 m) above the
surrounding ocean floor.
Two main rock layers
separated by a line about 1,400
feet (427 m) above sea level
make up La Palma.
Persaud explained that
strong erosion of the island over
time is shown by hundreds of
meters of gravel mixed in with
basaltic lava flows.
He said that the oldest


I umAIVII WVRnIwnG: ivr.
Evan Radhay Persaud
volcanic rocks on La Palma are
about 3-4 million years old.
"La Patna has seven historic
eruptions, the most recent in 1971.
Recent craters and eruptive vents are
located along a cental line, which
probably represents a major fault.
It is believed that this fault is very
deep and divides the island virtually
into two parts and a strong
earthquake can cause one part of the
island to slide suddenly into the
Atlantic Ocean.
"That can cause tsunamis
to appear on the coasts of
North and South America."
Meanwhile, scientists from
the British Geological Survey
are claiming that it is possible
that at least 500 million metric
tonnes of rock can slide into the
Atlantic. producing tsunamis up
to 50 meters high.
Such large tsunamis have
crossed the Atlantic Ocean in
the distant past and if they
are to reoccur, Guyana's
coastal population would face
dire consequences, Persaud
said.

THE tsunami disaster, which

Viewpoint by Robert Persaud


in spite of our own challenges,
we are fortunate in so many
other ways. A timely reminder
indeed.
As soon as the New
Year dawned. Guyanese, indi-
vidually and through various
organizations, were mobilising to
contribute to the global humani-
tarian response effort. The Gov-
ernment. immediately after the
disaster struck, was in contact
with representatives of some of
the affected countries and vari-
ous regional and international
agencies. It took about a week
before the wider world under-
stood the full magnitude of the
devastation and an assessment
of the needs of the affected re-
gions.
Once the global relief
responses were streamlined and
set into motion, the Government
of Guyana took the initiative to
contribute more than $10M to
the United Nation's Children
Fund (UNICEF). It further dem-
onstrated solidarity with the
peoples and governments of the
affected countries. The adminis-
tration also supported various

Our people's out-
pouring of support and contri-
bution are remarkable. From the
young to the old, the rich and
the poor, all gave what they
could afford. I felt proud as a
Guyanese While participating on
the telethon and listening to the
pledges from $1M, as was the
case of GAWU, to a child emp-

reminders of the striking com-
passion and generosity of our
people. Contributions came from
all around, the Capital City,
Berbice, Essequibo Coast and
Islands, and Linden, to name a
few areas.
There is the sponta-
neous coming together of our
people to help millions who suf-
fered in places many have never
heard about. Yet the outpourings
were as if we knew the people

In loving memory of

AMIN of Herstelling
who died on January
1,1992.
You were the love of
our life
We think of you first
thing in the morning
and last thing at night
Thirteen years of
missing you
Loving you more
than yesterday and
less than tomorrow


Al


We never knew what life would be without you until you
left
You always made us laugh and cry and you left us with
Wonderful memories that we will never forget
We love you and miss you so much
You'll always be in our hearts forever
We never knew that night God was going to call your
name
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same
It broke our hearts to lose you
You didnotgo alone forpart of us went withyou
The day God called you home
Your love is still our guide and though we cannot see
you
You are always by our side
Our family chain is broken and some things are not the
same
But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again
Forget you never. loving you forever
Sadly missed and always remembered by your
loving wife Waheeda of USA, two loving children
Amnah and Asif of USA, son-in-law Lako and other
a relatives.

So many plans, so many dreams, al left undone
No verse, no flowers, no tears can say
How much we miss you everyday
Silent are the tears that fall
Sad are the hearts that loved you
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest thing of all
A wonderfulperson has gone to rest
A loving dad who has done his best
Sadly missed by his wife Pinky, daughter Amy,
mom Data, also all of his brothers, sisters, nieces
and nephews, uncles, aunts and other relatives
and friends.

ST JOHN's, Antigua The West Indies Cricket Board
(WICB) has sent messages of condolence to the Guyana
Cricket Board and the relatives of two former West Indies
Test players who died earlier last week.
WICB president, Teddy Griffith, sent the messages, marking
the passing of Charlie Stayers and Robert Christiani, both
Guyanese who represented the West Indies.
Following are the texts of the messages:
I have been saddened to learn of the passing of Sven Conrad
(Charlie) Stayers.
Charlie Stayers represented the West Indies with
distinction in the four Test matches he played against
India in 1962 and his early departure from the game one
year later at the youthful age of 26, cut short a promising
career.
Stayers had the unique record of having played first-class
cricket for teams in both the West Indies and India, where he
played for Mumbai (Bombay).
The West Indies Cricket Board extends its condolences
to the Stayers family and the Guyana Cricket Board on
the death of the former Test player.
It is with regret that I have learnt of the passing of Robert
Christiani.
Christiani was a versatile member of the West Indies team
during a six-year period from 1948-54 and played 22 Test
matches during which he batted, bowled and kept wicket. He
scored 99 on his debut against England in 1948 at the
Kensington Oval, Barbados, and played in every Test match of
the historic Test Series of 1950, which saw "the West Indies
win its first ever Test series in England.
Apart from England, he also toured India, New Zealand
and Australia with the West Indies and was at the wicket
when the West Indies beat Australia at Melbourne in 1952,
the second time that a West Indies team had won a Test
match in Australia.
His skill against spin bowling and his sure-handed catching
close to the wicket also made him an invaluable member of the
British Guiana team for fifteen years, one as captain, in a career
broken by World War II. The contribution of the Christiani
family to cricket in Guyana is well known as four brothers,
including Robert, represented the territory at the first-class level
with elder brother Cyril also representing the West Indies.
The WICB joins me in extending its condolences to
The Christiani family and the Guyana Cricket Board on
the passing of this talented cricketer.

A HIGH-ranking interna-
tional table tennis official
will be here in another two
weeks to assess the local
game that could lead to assis-
tance in equipment and
training.
International Table Tennis
Federation (ITTF) and Latin
America Table Tennis Union
(LATTU) official, Evelio
Alvarez, will arrive on January
6 tor a n -w_ e ,>- visit to as-C


t o bal taonge-weeit vcoasn-
sess infrastructure and develop-
ment plans of the Guyana Table
Tennis Association (GTITA).
The visit is part of the
ITTF/LATTU development
plans and strategy for Lesser
Developed Countries (LCD)
and the Caribbean.
Guyana stand to benefit by
getting six competition tables
and nets, 288 competition balls,
80 beginners racquets, 576 train-
ing balls, along with coaching
programmes for officials and
players.
"This would serve as a
great impetus for sport be-
cause it would offset a great
amount of expenditure," the
- .GTTA said in a release.
The visiting official will be
conducting sessions for umpires
and coaching sessions for play-
ers at all levels and age groups.
.... According to the GTTA,


the country was selected for
the programme based on the
performance of players at
various championships, nego-
tiations by GTTA officials at
various fora and the reason-
ably high level of play dem-
onstrated by players at vari-
ous competitions.
The GTTA also said the
visit is timely since the gov-
ernment would be bringing
back the Chinese coach for
another one-year stint from
August.
Alvarez should be meeting
with Minister of Sport Gail
Teixeira and delegation from the
sport ministry, the National
Sports Commission (NSC), the
Guyana Olympic Association
(GOA) and other high-ranking
sport officials.
"The GTTA is very heart-
ened and pleased with these de-
velopments given the many
constraints athletes and sport
organizations face. In this re-
gard, the association would like
to thank the sports ministry and
NSC for their input."
A meeting is scheduled
for Tuesday next at the Cliff
Anderson Sports Hall for
players, umpires, parents and
table tennis enthusiasts to
discuss the Alvarez visit and
other plans for the year.

FOOTBALL fans and players
of the All-Star 'Bald Heads'
and the Rastafari Patriarchs
are hoping not to be
disappointed again after
persistent rains during the
last week left the Camptown
ground waterlogged and unfit
for play.
The condition of the field
forced organizers to reschedule
the much anticipated clash for
today at the said venue.
Both teams looked eager and
ready to take to the field last
Friday, Ethiopian Christmas
Day,but the inclement weather
had the final say as fans who
braved the rains to witness the


encounter were confronted with
an unplayable field.
The game which has
generated widespread
interest is set for this
afternoon at 15:45 h. The 90-
minute affair will have
unlimited substitutions and
re-substitutions. The Swiss
House Cambio Challenge
Cup at stake. The Trophy
Stall and Walter Roberts
have also donated trophies for
the MVPs of each side.
The 'Bald Heads' squad
includes Terrence Archer,
Leonard Williams, Marion De
Souza, Anthony Williams,
Bobby Fernandes, Mark La


Rose, Michael Pedro, Gary
Erskine, Colin Howard, Trevor
Gibbs, Nicky Thompson,
Dennis Hunte, Terry Nichols,
Mikey Layne, Herbert Pellew
and Dallas Sharpies.

Butts, Linden Rawlins, Terry
Nelson, Neville Wiltshire, Terry
Burnett, Julian James, Ian
Forde, Derrick Robinson, Gary

HAPPINESS is, quite simply,
feeling nice: a mixture of
contentment and wisdom
laced with bright shining joy.
When we are happy, we feel
gratitude (even when life
seems tough), inner peace,
satisfaction and affection for
ourselves and others.
Although retail therapy may
certainly help raise your
spirits (temporarily),
lasting happiness is not
dependent on money
and material things. It
is a feeling of being at
peace with yourself and
being able to take
pleasure in small
things; a stupid joke,
looking at a dog
bounding around on the road
or a beautiful plant, the smile
on the face of a child, help
from a stranger, drinking a
nice cold beer.
Happiness is available to
anyone at any time -
completely free because it is
inside you. You can never find
happiness by searching because
that implies it comes from
outside yourself. All you need
to do is choose happiness not
chase it.

can be hard sometimes very
hard but finding this innate
mind-health allows us to be
more easygoing, whatever we
have to cope with.
Setting out to be happy
doesn't mean you have to learn
a new technique or do
something special. Of course
that may help, but simply
exercising, say, or meditating
won't, in itself, make you
happy. If they did, everyone
who exercised or meditated
would be busting with joy.
Neither is changing your
circumstances job, home,
partner the complete answer.
The mindset that feels we must
do things different in order to be
happy won't go away when
that change has taken place. It
will just start all over again,
looking for flaws and
conditions that must be met.


'I will be happy when....'
'If only I had done this or so-
and-so hadn't done that'; I'll
be happier if I could live in the
USA instead of Guyana; 'If I
could just get rid of that.' You
know the internal conversations
we all have. You may decide to
make changes 'this girlfriend/
boyfriend will bring me
happiness in the long run' but
it's a mistake to believe that
your happiness is entirely
contingent on someone or
something (Remember: wherever
you go. you are the one who is
there. If YOU are not happy, then
you have recycled the same
problem, just in another place.)
Happiness is working out
your own take on life, the
universe and everything. Getting
happy is a question of learning
to access the place inside
yourself where serenity already


exists and has never gone way.
You don't have to create it. Just
connect with it. Then you can
stop trying to do happy and
simply be happy.
Each one of us is powerful,
creative and brilliant, and life
can be a great adventure. But
when you're anxious, stressed
and unhappy, you fret about
things that don't really matter
- sweating the small stuff and
you can't fulfil your own
potential. If you want to stay
like that, fine! You'll always be
able to convince yourself that
there is absolutely no way you
can change; anyone would be
the same with the stuff you
have to put up with!
But if you're open-
minded to the possibility of
being happier, you can start
right now. It's amazingly
simple.

gave yo iiiibe tipTohTow to-
use microwave ovens
effectively, and some recipes
for delicious, nutritious
dishes that you can make
using a microwave oven. In
this issue we will give you
some safety tips and
microwave shortcuts.
Microwave cooking saves
time in the kitchen, as it is
faster than conventional
methods of cooking, and energy
is conserved. Cooking time is
much faster and in addition,
only the food is heated. In
conventional methods of
cooking, the water and air
surrounding the food are also
heated, thus using up more
energy.
The short interval
necessary between thawing,
cooking, and serving means food
spends less time in the
temperature danger zone (4C-
60C or 40-140*F), where
harmful micro-organisms thrive.
One disadvantage, however, is
that food may not be cooked
evenly, leaving cold spots where
bacteria can thrive.
For very busy persons,
reduced cooking time means less
time is spent in the kitchen.
Additionally, there is usually
less clean-up required, as very
often, foods can be served in
the same containers in which
they have been cooked.

IS MICROWAVE COOKING
DANGEROUS?
Most experts think not,
once the door of the microwave
is properly sealed and safety
procedures are followed.
Microwaves are simply a source


of heat energy just like gas and safe'. The best choices are heat-
electricity. There is no evidence' proof glass and ceramic
"cooking results inany increased warn against using metal
levels of radioactivity, radiation, containers, containers with
or other harmful compounds or metal rims, of aluminium foil, as
effects in the food. However, microwave heat does not go

that the oven door is not pose a fire hazard in most
corroded, broken or otherwise microwave ovens. Note that
damaged, and that it fits some metal may not be very
squarely and securely. Clean obvious, e.g. small objects
your oven regularly and remove such as
food particles, especially
around


the door seal. Leftover food can
oxidise and harden with usage
and eventually create holes in
your microwave. Also, make
sure that the lock of latch works
properly to prevent the oven
door from opening while it is
running.

CONTAINERS AND
WRAPS WHAT'S SAFE?
Check for labels that state
that the container is 'microwave


ice cream containers are not
recommended as they may melt
and it is possible that chemicals
frum the container material may
seep into the food. Styrofoam
containers such as lunch boxes
may also melt if warmed for
too long, increasing the
i... kelihood of burns. Food
wrapped in brown paper,
plastic grocery bags of
newspaper should not be
heated in microwave ovens.

this is much less likely to
happen. Another precaution is
not heating water or liquids for
too long. Once you have
determined how much time is
usually needed to heat the water
just to the desired temperature,
use that time setting regularly.
Be careful with foods that
have distinctly different outer
and inner layers, such as pies,
jelly donuts and fruit tarts with
fillings. The outside may be just
warm to the touch while the
inside is boiling hot.
Do not cook eggs in the

Kissing The Cobra


I am currently separated
from my husband who is hav-
ing an affair. We've been
married four years, and we
just bought a condominium.
Things were looking hopeful.
We've had some challenges,
including him not working


much while I supported him
emotionally and financially.
For the past seven months
he's had a steady income, thus
we bought the condo. He cru-
elly announced to me in an un-
safe place-at a conference
where I had professional com-


mitments-that he loves an-
other woman and would have
married her if he hadn't married
me. I am heartbroken.
We've been to marriage
counseling. I've been in shock,
dismay, anger, and terrible grief
as I adore my husband and have

LOVE

I've been in a relationship with a loving, sweet man.
From the start we spent a great deal of time together,
usually at his house because he has a lot of issues with
panic attacks and driving. As time went on he told me he
loved me and could see spending the rest of his life with
me.
I thought he was incredibly hot, and to be honest. I could
not keep my hands off him. A month ago I woke up one morning
and felt numb. Everything that seemed perfect about him before
seemed imperfect. I started analyzing him and finding a million
things wrong. I even started dreading his daily calls.
He did nothing wrong. I mean. he's been the same person
all along Why do I feel this way My fnends think I may have

SAMANTHA

Samantha, we had a golden retriever named Einstein. He had
hip dysplasia and arthritis, even as a youngster. Some might
have seen a nullion things wrong with him, but we never did
because we loved him so.
With this man you narrowed your focus to the pleasurable
elements, but at the first inkling of making this permanent, you
were forced to see the rest of him. That's not a commitment
problem. That's realizing you don't want to own all the things
you tee wrong with this man.

Enriching lives through




traditional techniques


The Dentist Advises
l m~li:jgtki;lii4;>iiM" i~~


IT IS well established and
even confirmed by numerous
international reports that
there is global trend of
increased longevity among
the elderly, especially in the
developed and developing
countries. It therefore seems
logical to assume that dentists
will go on enriching the
quality of the patients' lives
via traditional techniques of
prosthetic rehabilitation.
However, population groups
exist who simply cannot
benefit from current
treatment techniques.
A significant number of
elderly patients are already
without natural teeth and wear
complete dentures with different
degrees of success. Many
elderly patients are edentulous
(missing teeth) and may not be
able to avail themselves of
methods for retention of their
remaining teeth. Clinical
wisdom would suggest
immediate denture therapy for
such patients, particularly if


advanced gum disease is
present.
In order for persons who
have lost most of their teeth to
obtain this satisfaction with
dentures, it is important that the
remaining teeth be preserved no
matter in what condition the
crown may be. These teeth, if
strategically located, may be
retained and prepared for
abutment service as adjunctive
means of support under partial
or complete over dentures.
The mechanical principles
of partial or complete dentures
treatment when correctly
applied are purported to
virtually guarantee a happy
coexistence between dentures
and their host tissues. As a
result, dentists have been
remarkably successful in
convincing themselves, if not
always their patients, that
technically well made removable
dentures can be worn
satisfactorily and perhaps even
indefinitely.
According to reports,


evidence reveals that while it is
difficult to define denture
satisfaction, a significant
number of patients in all age
groups are dissatisfied with
their dentures. Furthermore,
many elderly patients
experience difficulty in attaining
comfortable and efficient oral
function with removable
dentures.
The important relationship
between adequate oral function,
and proper digestion and
nutrition is well documented.
Since the greater the life
expectancy of toothless patients
is likely to go on increasing, the
risk of denture dissatisfaction
and its functional implications
can only be prolonged. This risk
is particularly compelling in the
context of denture supporting
tissues' vulnerability to adverse
changes as a result of long term
denture wear.
There seems to be the
tendency for the all-or-none rule
where retaining teeth is
concerned. It is commonly
believed that it is better to
extract all one's teeth and wear
total dentures rather than
keeping a few and wearing a

In an opposition action



Judge rules amendment allowed



only where it corrects error


JUSTICE Kenneth Stoby
was presiding in an
Opposition Action in 1953
when he pointed out that
while the law does not
provide for amendments in
statement of claims to amend
the reasons for opposition, an
amendment is, however
allowed, when it seeks to
correct an error.
That statement was
contained in a decision in the
case of Budhoo versus Allim and
Anor.


Topics discussed at the
four-day hearing included
immovable property;
opposition; pleading;
amendment and rules of court
(Deeds Registry) 1921.
At the trial of the action, the
plaintiff, Budhoo, sought to
amend his statement of claim by
introducing an allegation not
contained in the reasons for
opposition.
The Court held: "In an
opposition action where an
amendment enlarges or alters


the plaintiff's case as set out in
his reasons for opposition, the
amendment ought not to be
allowed, but where it corrects an
error or explains the reasons for
opposition, it is permissible.
Attorney-at-Law W. J.
Gilchrist appeared for the
plaintiff, while lawyers N.O.
Poonai and L.M.F. Cabral
appeared for the first and
second defendants.

had said: "When the hearing of
this case was resumed on the
13th May, counsel for the
plaintiff applied for leave to
amend paragraph 2 (1) of his




ByGec

statement of claim by
permitting him to plead that a
receipt dated July 1, 1949, given
by the first defendant to the
plaintiff acknowledging that the
sum of $75 was paid on account
of the purchase price of the
property, the subject matter of
this action was a sufficient note
or memorandum signed by the
party to be changed within the
meaning of Section 3 of the Civil
Law of British Guiana
Ordinance, Chapter 7.
"The amendment desired
was reduced to writing and


placed on the file as part of the
record," the judge disclosed.
Justice Stoby explained:
"Mr. Cabral for the second
defendant objected to the
plaintiff being permitted to
amend and submitted that the
application infringed Rule 9 of


)rge Barclay
the Rules of Court (Deeds
Registry) 1921".
The Judge went on to say:
"It is settled law that in what
is commonly called an
opposition action, an opponent
may not allege in his statement
of claim any reason for
opposition other than those
contained in his reasons for
opposition, unless the Court on
summons has granted leave."
Such leave must be given
before delivery of the statement
of claim. (De Silva Sukra (1942)

an amendment on the ground
that the proposed amendment
was not an alteration of the
grounds or reasons for
opposition but was intended to
correct an error in the
description of the land

whether the proposed

emphasised.
He added: "In his statement
of claim incorporating these
reasons, the plaintiff pleads that
the defendant had entered into
a contract with him for the sale
of land on January 28, 1950. It
is not now open to him to allege
an earlier or later contract, for
the moment he does so, his
evidence would be inconsistent


with the contract on which his
opinion is based.
'DEFEAT'
"In this case, the time when
the contract was entered into.
may be an important or even
the decisive factor in the case
and to grant the amendment as
applied for would defeat the
provisions of Rule 9.
"If, however, the purpose of
the amendment is not to set up
a fresh contract, but merely to


plead the circumstances leading
up to ,the contract of the 28th.
January, 1950, then such an
amendment would not alter or
enlarge the grounds of
opposition and can be granted,"
the Judge declared.
Justice Stoby also said
that the proposed amendment
contains a paragraph which
claims that the receipt of 1st
July, 1949, is a note or
memorandum within the
meaning of Section 3 of the

Justice Stoby added: "This
implies that the plaintiff intends
to rely on a contract of the 1st

the contract already pleaded.

Furthermore, the original
allegation was ihat $75 has been

been paid on the 1st July, 1949.
This is self contradictory for the
reason that no contract had been
entered when the $75 was paid.
"If $75 was paid, it was on
an uncompleted contract which
was not concluded until January
28th, 1950.
"It 'seems then that the
amendment as framed is a
belated attempt to change the
plaintiff's case. .
"I would be prepared to


allow an amendment which will
clarify the plaintiff's case
without changing it. The
evidence -is that $75 was paid
on 1st July, 1949, and a receipt
given. There can be no objection
to substituting 'had' for 'has'
and concluding at the word
plaintiff," Justice Stoby said.
"The amendment is
allowed up to the word
plaintiff and refused as to the
rest," the Judge ruled.

wn- ...


'GUIANA 1838', the movie set
in 19th century British
Guiana, made its mark in the
world's highest grossing
movie industry, Hollywood.
The film is the first made in
Guyana over the last 25 years
and the responsibility of
attracting other filmmakers to tell
tales about the region rested on
the shoulders of director and
producer Rohit Jagessar who led
a team of 60 actors and
technicians from the US,
England, Israel and India to
Guyana early last year to work
on the production.
During filming, Jagessar
systematically launched a
marketing campaign that
continued to the premiere of the
film in New York on September
24, 2004. By Monday,
September 27, after the film's
premiere weekend, Guiana 1838
made the Hollywood film charts
breaking the highest per screen
average record set in the US.
Jagessar received the phone
call from his agent at midnight on
Sunday, September 26, informing


as a people and where we are
about to go and what
possibilities lie ahead for us as a
people from a region the world
chose not to think about. I
had planned for this moment
right from the time I
conceived the idea of making
this film about the people of
India, Africa, Britain and
Guyana during colonial times.
And this moment had now
arrived: the moment that
would either put Guyana and
the region in Hollywood history
books permanently or set us
back once again. I took the
phone as if it was the first time
I held a phone in my hand and
my agent gave me the news
straight up. I remember him
telling me to keep the champagne
corked for a few more hours
until Hollywood released its
official numbers."
"The next call came in
around 10 hours later and it
was now official. Not only had
'Guiana 1838' broken the box
office records with the highest
per screen average in the US,


And so too, we should. It is the
celebration of our
accomplishments that inspires
those amongst us to go forward
with confidence, knowing that
the impossible is very much
within reach and things we
dream of can become reality. 1
encourage our people to tear
down our invisible barriers and
borders with open minds and
humbly celebrate our
accomplishments with pride and
let us continue to move forward
as a people."
I would like to thank my
entire team, my cast and crew,
the media and last but not
least, the fans who stood by
'Guiana 1838' and came in
large crowds, stood patiently
in long lines to see my film,
our film. It is the people that
came to see the film that
brought it to the Hollywood
Box Office charts," he said.
'Guiana 1838' tells the story
of the abolition of African
nlaverv in the Ritish West Indies


and the arrival of Indians who
were brought to the colony to
replace the freed slaves on
plantations of British Guiana in
1838. The film stars Kumar
Gaurav as Laxman, Aarti Bathija
as Urmila, Henry Rodney as the
maroon Cabi, Neville Williams
as the African slave Amie, Kiran
Pande as the Indian labour
recruiter Sinha and Thomas
Garvey as David, the fierce
Plantation driver.
The film has now
completed its platform
release and already grossed
about $200,000 on three
screens. It opens wider to 16
screens in Florida on
February 4, and then on to
several hundred US and
Canadian screens during this
quarter. The film will make
its European, Asian, African
and West Indian premieres
during the second quarter of
this year. The DVD release
has been pushed back to
December.


'Some nations would celebrate such accomplishments
as recognized by Hollywood upon 'Guiana 1838'
triumph. And so too, we should. It is the celebration
of our accomplishments that inspires those amongst
us to go forward with confidence, knowing that the
impossible is very much within reach and things we
dream of can become reality." Rohit Jagessar,
'Guiana 1838' Director/Producer

At D rek Moorel's I


By Amanda Wilson in
London


HE DOES it by his own rules
but still gets lots of 'oooohhs'
and 'aaaahhs' at every
fashion show.
London was no exception.
Guyanese fashion designer
Derek Moore in December
introduced his brand of vogue at
his first London showing at the
Lord's Convention Centre.
His latest collection, a
mixture of tropical, sexy and
exotic attire, firmly added a
touch of Guyanese-ness to the
fashion show, which was part of
cable channel Original Black
Entertainment (OBETV) first
anniversary celebration.
The event, which started
after 19:00 h on December 18,
2004, proved to be a melting
pot of African, European,
American and West
Indian fashion trends.
Traditional African
costumes lro
Ghana. NigernaH

Sierra Leone to th
;e \ e\enin g^I

colours and cutL.
were the call o
the nighl.
few women
ee.n showed the men that
they too could pull off classy
and well-tailored pants suits.
While OBETV Chairman
Bernard Ampaw reminisced
about the beginning of the
stauon and thanked advertisers
for their continued support,
more than 15 models were in
a back dressing room getting
ready to add the style to the .
already exciting evening.
Derek's models were-i
being made up with'%f
shimmering and earth tone;-'
colours. Of course, he trusted;
no one to do it. That's why
he did dress fittings the night,
before.
"Just making sure,,
everything looks good and.'
everyone is happy with
their outfits and the make- .-'
up looks-good," Deirel -
managed between..


applying power to a model's face
and checking the evening's
programme.
Outside, lights dimmed
and a catchy track filled the
large room. The style
segment kicked off with
collections by OSAAM
Designs and OSEI Designs.
The outfits by African
designers Samuel Mensah
and Jerry Osei Tutu took the
crowd's breath away. Not that
any of the more than 150
specially invited swank guests
couldn't have strutted along
the models' paths in the
tastefully decorated

figure-hugging dresses with trails
and short cocktail strapless
dresses. The detailed duds
brought an unmistakable richness
of Africa to the evening.
By 22:00 h, the
programme was at its half
way mark. Other forms of
entertainment came:
traditional African dances to
the beats of the drums, and
Caribbean music by
Guyanese entertainer John
'Slingshot' Drepaul. The
crowd's lengthy applause said
it all they loved both.
Then it was Derek's turn to
bring the curtains down on
fashion and culture. His models
were all queens in their own right

convention centre as an
opening. But none was as
brave as the chosen girls.
It was the designers' use of
traditional African colours like
green, yellow and black, and
prints with large and small


they strutted their stuff around
the room elegantly. The line-up
started with truly exotic bright
colourful wraps twisted in all
directions paired with elegant
pants to funky loose tops and
cropped navel-baring tanks
paired with skirts and also
pants.
But it was the shimmering
white sari-styled dress worn by
Miss Guyana World that stole
the show. It was her Miss
World Pageant evening gown.
"Everyone loves this gown.
It's so elegant and delicate that
it captivates everybody,"
Suzette said as she packed her
accessories in the dressing room
after the show. She obviously
heard some of the 'oooohhs' and
'aaaahhs' as she glided between


'2005 has big things in store for me. This is just the
start London. I already have ideas buzzing in my
head. Watch me for Mash in February. And with the
connections I've managed to make here, I plan to take

shapes that was absolutely
magical. Both collections had a
twist of European cuts combined
with African wraps. The high-
heeled shod exquisite African
models moved around the room
like queens out of Africa in long


Ken Chuing and President of
Miss Tourism World and Miss
Model of the World, John Singh.
The list read like a Queen of
Queens pageant. From Miss
Guyana World Suzette Shim,
Miss Guyana UK, Aulthea
Fifee, and Miss Model of the
World 2003, Anzhelika Klypa of
Russia, to Miss Tourism World
2003, Romania Alina Ciorogariu,
Miss Tourism World 2004, Miss
Brazil, Danubia Sousa, and Miss
Model of the Universe 2003,
Aneta Mizerh of Poland.
Moving to a quick tempo,


chairs and tables.
"The fashion show was
great. Derek was a big hit
from the first model to the
last. I must say, seeing some
of my Miss World outfits on
some of the other models gave
me a different feeling. They
all looked wonderful," she
said.
By the way, every outfit was
complemented by long strands
of local earth tones beads and
funky short wraparound
versions necklaces.
Derek couldn't stop


smiling. I caught up with him
again after his final walk. I
couldn't expect better. I'm
getting compliments and
invitations from ever\
direction," he said excitedly
Neatly packing away some
of his creations, he paused. "You
cannot stop fashion because
people are always looking fo.r
something different to wear I
like the fact that people here m
London are very into light
materials and colours. Boy, you
can do so much with light
materials from dresses to top,.
you name it."
More pieces are packed
away. A make-up bag is
rummaged through by Miss
Russia and Model of the World
2003, Anzhelika Klypa.
"I loved his clothes. They all
fit really nice and the colours
really nice," was her contribution
to the conversation.
So, "what next, Derek," I
asked. "2005 has big things in
store for me. This is just thel
start London. I already ha% e
ideas buzzing in my head. Watch
me for Mash in February. And
with the connections I'Le
managed to make here, I plan o
take advantage of it all," he
smiled.
"I loved the other
designers' clothes. They
showed just how many things
you can do with African
prints," Derek, also the
official designer for the Miss
Guyana World Pageant, said

IH, .I FACTS ON SHAREHOLDERS SHARE VALUE




Your shares have multiplied through Bonus Issues distributed over the years, and the
worth in shares you currently have is far greater that your original investment, e.g., a
shareholder who bought say 10,000 shares in 1993 at the then $9.00 per share would have
invested $90,000 (US$688.) through Bonus issues in 1994, 1996, 1998,2001 and 2004that
shareholder now has 84,375 shares a 744% increase at the current stock market price of
$8.00, giving a total value of $675,000 (US$3,309), a return on investment of 650% qr 6.5
times the initial investment.
S.1993. . ... .





That shareholder would have. also receive diviedsd totaling $177,800 over the Period.


that shareholder would havena total hor .gra hunting to $852,800 an 848v% yield sn"e


In US Dollars that shareholder using a rate of $130.75in 1993 and $204.00 in 2004 would
now have worth totaling US$4,180 on his initial investment of US$688.00, a yield of


In terms of dividend paid in 2004, the 40 cents (40%) paid, based on a current share value
of $8.00, that shareholder gets a return of 5% tax free which is a better return than bank
rates averaging 4% from which aWithholding Tax of 20% is deductible at source.

That shareholder would have received the 40 cents 40%) per share on the Bonus Issue
distributed in March 2004 which effectively carries the dividend rate paid upwards.

All shareholders need to analyse and to appreciate the increased
value of the shares they are holding and the need to maintain or
increase their share portfolio in Banks DIH Ltd.

CURING
Ginger intended for storage
should be cured by air drying
the rhizomes at ambient
temperature (220C to 260C or
71F to 790F) and 70% to 75%
RH for several days to allow the
skin to thicken and the cut
surfaces to suberize. Curing will
help reduce postharvest weight
loss and decay. Following this
brief curing treatment, the ginger
should be put in well-ventilated
containers for long-term storage.
TEMPERATURE
MANAGEMENT
Ginger may be successfully
stored for several months if the
correct postharvest handling and
storage procedures are utilized,
and healthy, undamaged
rhizomes are initially selected.
The optimal temperature for
storing and transporting ginger
is 120C (55F). At this
temperature, the rhizomes will
remain in marketable condition
for at least 3 months, depending
on initial rhizome vigor and
condition. Holding ginger at
ambient temperatures (25C to
300C or 770F to 86F) will
result in high moisture loss,


surface shriveling, and sprouting
of the rhizome. Market life
under these conditions is less
than 1 month. Therefore, ginger
exports from Guyana can be
made in non-refrigerated marine
containers if the rhizomes are
shipped within a week of
harvest. At the other
temperature extreme, ginger is
very sensitive to chilling injury
and should not be stored below
12C (550F).
RELATIVE HUMIDITY
Dehydration is a common
postharvest disorder of ginger
held under low relative humidity
(RH) conditions (i.e. less than
65% RH). Shriveling of the
rhizome becomes noticeable
after the loss of more than 10%
of the initial harvest weight. On
the other hand, surface mould
will begin to grow at a RH above
90% and sprouting will be
stimulated, especially if the
temperature is above 16C. In
order to minimize weight loss
but avoid surface mould, a
compromise RH range of
between 70% to 75% is
recommended for storing ginger.
Ginger stored at 22*C (72F)


and 70% RH for 3 months will
lose about 20% of its initial
weight.
PRINCIPAL
POSTHARVEST DISEASES
Postharvest disease in
ginger is normally due to rough
harvesting and handling
practices which result in injury
to the skin and flesh of the
rhizome. Holding ginger at a
less than optimal temperature
and RH will accelerate
postharvest decay. Postharvest
losses from diseases are caused
by various fungi and bacterial
soft rot. Decay can be kept to
a minimum by following careful
harvesting and handling
practices, sanitation of the wash
water, curing of the rhizomes
after washing to promote
wound healing, application of a
postharvest fungicide, and
holding the rhizomes at 12.5C
(55F) and 70% to 75% RH.
BLUE MOULD
Blue mould, caused by the
fungus Penicillium, is a
common postharvest rot of

ginger stored at a high RH. Blue
mould generally requires
moisture condensation on the
rhizome surface, or storage at a
RH above 95%. Mild surface
infestations may be superficial
only and not cause decay.
However, the ginger has an
unsightly appearance. Blue

tissue decay. The rotted
tissue is pale to dark
brown, and may be firm or
soft. Decay is particularly
rapid at temperatures
between 150C and 20C
(590F and 680F).

DRY ROT
Dry rot, caused by the soil-
borne fungus Fusarium, is a
common postharvest disease of
ginger. Infection is typically
associated with wounds or
insect and nematode damaged
tissue. External symptoms of
dry rot include off-coloured dry
sunken lesions on the rhizome
surface. The lesions are
typically bordered by a brown
margin. The fungus
subsequently invades the entire
rhizome, which becomes brown,
dry, and shriveled. In humid
environments, the ginger surface
may become covered with a
dense white mould. Internal
symptoms include a pale
brown discolouration of the
vascular tissue.

WATERY ROT
Watery rot, caused by the
fungus Rhizopus, is one of the


most rapidly developing storage
rots of ginger. Symptoms include
a soft, watery rot that
progresses rapidly and may rot
an entire rhizome in a week.
Infected tissue is mottled brown
and soft, and in a humid
atmosphere the infected area is
soon covered with large amounts
of white mould. The mould will
eventually turn black. Rhizopus
is a wound pathogen and is not
effecftiv in coloni zin healthy


fungicide 2,6-dichloro-4-
nitroaniline (Botran) applied
just prior to packing may reduce
watery rot during transport to
export market destinations.

PYTHIUM
Pythium is another common
soil-borne fungus that can be
severe on ginger harvested
during the rainy season or on
rhizomes grown in poorly
drained soils. Symptoms appear
as small brownish spots on the
skin, which may rapidly enlarge
into sizeable lesions. As the
decay progresses, the tissue
breaks down into a soft and
watery mass.

ARMILLARIAROT
Armillaria rot, caused by the
fungus Armillaria mellea, can be
a problem on ginger grown in
recently cleared forest land.
Symptoms include the
development of tough, dark,
string-like growths which adhere
to the rhizomes. These
structures are aggregations of
fungal strands, commonly called
the 'shoe-string fungus'. Control
involves the uprooting of all
remaining tree stumps.


SCLEROTIUM ROT
Sclerotium rot, caused by
the soil-borne fungus Sclerotium
rolfsii, is most commonly found
on rhizomes harvested from
stressed plants. Symptoms of
decay include a well-defined
separation between rotted and
healthy tissue. A white mould
forms on the ginger surface and
noticeable shrinkage of the
rhizome occurs. Small spherical
fungal resting bodies about 1 to
in diameter develop on the
mould. They are initially white
but later turn brown.

BACTERIAL SOFT ROT
Bacterial soft rot, caused
by Erwinia carotovora, is the
principal ,postharvest
bacterial disease of ginger.
These bacteria are
widespread, especially in
poorly drained soils, and
enter the ginger rhizome via
wounds in the tissue.
Symptoms of bacterial soft
rot include a soft wet rot of the
tissue, which has a strong
foul odour. Development of
this disease is rapid under
warm, humid conditions.

Postharvest
Disorders

SPROUTING
Ginger rhizomes will sprout
at temperatures above 15.6C
(60*F). Sprouting may begin
after several weeks at ambient
temperature. The rate of
sprouting grows as the
temperature increases. Keeping
temperatures at 12.50C (550F)

will prevent sprouting. There is
no effective chemical sprout
inhibitor for ginger.

CHILLING INJURY
Ginger rhizomes are very
sensitive to chilling injury
(CI) or low temperature
breakdown if stored below
120C (54F). CI is a
physiological disorder that
results in pitting and sunken
lesions on the rhizome


surface, shriveling, softening,
flesh darkening, and
postharvest decay. Shelf life
is significantly shortened and
eating quality of chilled
rhizomes is inferior to non-
chilled rhizomes. The
amount of CI damage to the
ginger rhizomes depends on
the specific temperature and
the duration of exposure to
the low temperature. The
lower the temperature and


longer periods of exposure
will result in more CI. Also,
the damage is cumulative.
Slight injury may occur after
5 days at 7C (45"F). Uncured
rhizomes are more
susceptible to chilling
injury than properly cured
rhizomes. Two weeks of
exposure at 7C (450F) will
result in significant CI and
decay to uncured
rhizomes.

Pediatrics


LAST year (it
seems so long
ago), we had
decided to ease a
bit on the science and dwell -
during the Christmas Season -
on more flippant issues. Today,
we are back with the science.
You may recall that we
were discussing the features to
which special attention must be
paid when we are purchasing or
adopting a young puppy. We
ended up by referring to some
aspects of the physical


-conlinued


examination. Let's continue in
this vein.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION
OF THE MALE PUPPY

In addition to all that we
mentioned in the TVAs of
December 2004, we must now
specifically examine the
reproduction organs of the male
puppy.
Firstly, push the foreskin
back to confirm that it slides
back and forth easily. Adhesions


between the prepuce and the
head of the penis, as well as
strictures of the foreskin, require
veterinary attention. Both
testicles should be present in
the scrotum. A dog with an.
undescended testicle cannot be
exhibited at Pet Shows and
should not be used for breeding.
Female puppies Examine
the vulva. Look for pasting of
hair or discharge. Juvenile
vaginitis is a common problem
and requires treatment.
The skin and hair around the
anus should be clean and
healthy-looking. Signs of
irritation, such as redness and
hair loss, indicate the possibility
of worms, chronic diarrhoea, or

CACOM t maintain lobby





on EU sugar reforms


despite Mandelson assurances


by Sharief Khan

THE Caribbean Community
(CARICOM) will maintain
the lobby against changes in
the European Union sugar
regime which will impact
severely on Guyana and
other sugar-producing
countries, trade ministers
said after a meeting here.
In a statement Friday
night, the ministers said they
were encouraged by comments
from EU Trade Commissioner
:Peter Mandelson who flew here


to meet them on the sugar
policy changes and other issues.
But they stressed that the
African Caribbean and Pacific
(ACP) countries will continue
with their lobbying "as the
challenges facing sugar
producers in light of the plan by
the EU to drastically alter the
quota system for ACP countries
remain."
Caribbean sugar exporters
are urging the EU to rethink its
plans to reduce preferential
prices paid for sugar imports
from the ACP group of

developing nations. They say
such reforms will devastate their

Mandelson said after
meeting the ministers that the
EU sugar reforms were
necessary and unavoidable. But
Europe was willing to offer
development assistance to
offset their impact.

things vis-a-vis ACP producers;
that we maintain a preferential

that we accompany this with a
robust local adaptation
process," he said.
"We will put forward
development assistance
measures to increase the
competitiveness of the industry
in sugar producing countries or
to support its diversification,"
Mandelson added.
He said the European
Commission would publish a
draft action plan soon to help
nations to be affected by the
reforms.
"The EU's support must
come into play as early as
possible, so as to anticipate
rather than simply cushion
change," Mandelson said.
Caribbean representatives,
who have warned the EU sugar
regime reforms will have
"devastating socio-economic
consequences" on their
countries, greeted the assurances
cautiously.
"I am encouraged but I am
wary ... until I see delivery,"
CARICOM Secretary General
Edwin Carrington told the
Chronicle.
Mandelson said the EU
must act quickly to help ease
the impact of the proposed
reforms of its sugar policy on
ACP sugar producers.

The CARICOM Council
for Trade and Economic
Development (COTED) met at
Le Meridien Pegasus hotel
Friday and was updated on the
results of the meeting with the
EU trade chief, "at which there
was much discussion on sugar,
bananas, rum and rice", the
statement said.
COTED noted remarks by
Mandelson that the changes
taking place in the EU sugar
quota system should be neutral
in their impact on exporting
countries.
"It was also noted that the
EU official stressed that the
EU's support for sugar
exporters must come into play
as early as possible so as to
anticipate rather than to cushion
change", the ministers said.
The state-owned Guyana
Sugar Corporation (Guysuco)
said the EU reforms "would be
a mammoth setback for
Guyana's major industry and
for the country's employment,
foreign exchange and overall
development prospects."
In a press release, the
corporation said the proposals
"threaten the greatest blow to
this country's trade in recent
times."
Guysuco said proposed
changes to the EU sugar regime
would mean a reduction in
revenue for the Guyana sugar
industry of G$4.4 billion in each
of the years 2005/06 and 2006/
07 to be followed by an annual
reduction of G$7 4 billion after
that.
"In the conte\1 of
Guyana's very small and fragile
economy, the loss of revenue is
hugely significant and will lead
to devastating socio-economic
consequences given the major
role played by sugar in this


country's economy", the
corporation noted.
Mandelson says the EU is
facing internal pressures to
change its sugar regime because
it is paying three times the
world price for its sugar.
Last year, after a complaint
from Brazil, the world's largest
sugar producer, the World Trade
Organisation (WTO) ruled that
the EU was illegally dumping
millions of tonnes of subsidized
sugar on world markets.
The EU plans to allow
some preferential access for the
ACP to continue through
economic partnership
agreements (EPAs) now under
negotiation.
Mandelson said the EPA
process will be monitored "to
check continuously whether or
not it is delivering the right
results to build up local
capacity, and that the process
really does constitute the true
economic partnerships I insist
on for these agreements."
He met President Bharrat
Jagdeo Thursday and flew out
Friday afternoon after visiting
sugar operations in East
Berbice.
The CARICOM Secretariat
the COTED discussions on
bananas took place against the
background of increasingly
complex issues including the
threatened shift from a quota to
a tariff regime.
Other issues affecting
Caribbean banana producers
include the diminishing
access to the European
market and de-elopments in
technology which could
enhance production and
provide some compensation for
the exposure to natura'it
disasters and other".'

WASHINGTON (Reuters) A
weak El Nino during the next
three months will mean
cooler and wetter weather in
part of the U.S. South and
drier conditions in some ar-
eas of Indonesia, Africa and
Australia, U.S. government
weather forecasters said on
Thursday.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) said in its latest win-
ter weather outlook that El Nino
would also bring warmer-than-
average temperatures to the
U.S. West and northern Plains.
While El Nino conditions
will persist during the next three
months, the forecasters said
"there is considerable uncer-
tainty concerning future devel-
opments" of the weather phe-
nomena.
El Nino, which is Spanish
for "the little boy," is an abnor-
mal warming of water in the Pa-
cific Ocean every three or so
years that can wreak havoc with

global weather patterns.
The weather agency said if
warming in the Pacific Ocean
strengthens and spreads east to-
ward South America, parts of
Ecuador and northern Peru
could experience wetter-than-
normal conditions in March and
April.
Meanwhile, drier-than-aver-
age weather would develop in
northern Brazil from February
to April, NOAA said.
U.S. government forecasters
announced last October that a
weak El Nino would influence
U.S. weather for several months.
El Ninos can affect crop
production, commercial fish-
ing, and energy consumption
in countries around the
world.

AAYTHA, Iraq (Reuters) A
U.S. warplane mistakenly
bombed a house in northern
Iraq yesterday, killing sev-
eral people in an attack
likely to inflame anti-
American anger ahead of
controversial elections due
at the end of the month.'.
Furious residents pf
the village of Aaytha, south of
the city of Mosul, said the air
strike flattened a villa and killed
14 civilians. Reuters television
pictures showed 14 freshly dug
graves after the bombing in the
early hours of yesterday.
The U.S. military said
at least five people died after
an F-16 warplane dropped a
500-pound bomb on the wrong
target.
"The house was not
the intended target for the air
strike. The intended target was
another location nearby," the
U.S. army said. It added that it
"deeply regrets the loss Of pos-
sibly innocent lives" and that an
investigation was under way.
Iraqi anger over civil-
ian casualties in Iraq has dented
U.S. efforts to get the country
behind the elections. Many
Sunni Arab leaders say violence





Friday, D


in Sunni areas will make fair elec-
tions impossible, and plan to
boycott the polls. Large numbers
of Sunni Arab Iraqis say they are
simply too scared to vote.
Insurgent groups -
mainly comprising Sunni former
members of Saddam Hussein's
regime, nationalist Iraqis wanting
foreign troops to leave, and for-
eign Arab fighters with links to
al Qaeda are waging a deadly
campaign to derail the polls.
A suicide bomb killed
four people near a checkpoint
south of Baghdad yesterday,
while militants abducted three
senior Iraqi officials in the same
area, police said. A female French
journalist has also been missing
since Wednesday and is feared to
be the latest foreign victim of a
kidnapping spree.

IRAQIANGER

Residents of Aaytha
said U.S. army vehicles sur-
rounded part of the village before
the strike early yesterday. The
U.S. military said the stray bomb
was dropped during an opera-
tion to capture an insurgent cell
leader.
Last May, there was
widespread anger among Iraqis
after U.S. Marines attacked an


isolated villa in the desert in
western Iraq, killing around 40
people, including six women.
Survivors said the
house was attacked just after a
wedding party and that all the
victims were innocent civilians.
The American military said that
while a party may have been
taking place, the house was a
base for insurgents.
U.S. air strikes on tar-
gets in the city of Falluja also
caused controversy last year -
the American military insisted
the attacks targeted insurgents
but local doctors and residents
said many civilians were also
killed.
Persistent violence,
particularly in Sunni areas of
Iraq, threatens to undermine the
country's elections. President
Bush has pledged that Ameri-
can-led troops would do every-
thing possible to safeguard
Iraq's first national ballot since
the fall of Saddam Hussein.
But with three weeks
left, Bush acknowledged that
four of 18 provinces were still
not secure enough for Iraqis to
vote.
In the past week
alone, Sunni insurgents have
killed nearly 100 people in

RAMALLAH, West Bank
(Reuters) Palestinians com-_
plained yesterday that Israel
was not carrying out the
promised easing of its mili-
tary grip on the West Bank
and Gaza for a presidential
election to pick Yasser
Arafat's successor.
As international elec-
tion monitors deployed to over-
see the ballot, Israeli soldiers
kept up their daily routine, in-
specting the identity cards and
packages of Palestinians waiting
in line at checkpoints at the en-
trances to West Bank cities.
"This is not what we
call easing of restrictions," Pal-
estinian cabinet minister Saeb
Erekat said ahead of the poll,
which Mahmoud Abbas, an ad-
vocate of non-violence in the
struggle for statehood, was ex-
pected to win by a landslide.

sinations mostly targeting fledg-

Under pressure to
quell the violence, the U.S. mili-
tary said it had captured a key
leader of a northern cell of an Is-
lamist group headed by al Qaeda
ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, re-
sponsible for most of the
bloodiest attacks.

CARTER ASKED TO
DELIVERWARNING

Political sources said
former U.S. President Jimmy
Carter, one of the international
election monitors, was asked by
an adviser to Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon to deliver the warn-
ing to Abbas, the front-running
candidate.
Al-Aqsa Martyrs
Brigades, an armed group in
Abbas's dominant Fatah fac-
tion, claimed responsibility for
the West Bank ambush.
Veteran Israeli peace-
maker Shimon Peres, who is
taking his Labour Party into a
new coalition go\emment with
Sharon to pursue a planned
Gaza pullout, said'Israel would
do its utmost to facilitate the,
ballot.
"It :is in our interest
as well as the Palestinians',"
Peres told Israel Radio.
Arafat's death in No-
vember has raised hopes of re-
viving peace moves and ending
four years of Israeli-Palestinian
bloodshed. The United States
and Israel accused him of fo-
menting violence, an allegation
he always denied.
.New violence flared
in the Gaza Strip, where Israeli
soldiers shot dead a 60-year-old
Palestinian who was in a car at
a junction near an army post and
a Jewish settlement, local med-
ics said. The army said troops
opened fire at a gunman who
approached a military position.

But a gate in a sec-
tion of Israel's West Bank
barrier remained closed and
she could not pass. "If the
gate stays shut, I will not be
able to vote," she said.


Many leaders of
Saddam's once-privileged Sunni
minority have called for a delay
in the vote, saying persistent at-
tacks in Sunni areas would scare
away many voters and.skew the
results in favor of the long-
marginalised Shi'ite majority.
But interim Prime
Minister lyad Allawi, a secu-
lar Shi'ite, has rejected any
postponement of the vote,
which is expected to cement
the Shi'ites' newfound politi-
cal dominance.

By Tim Gaynor
MONTERREY, Mexico
(Reuters) Ten gang mem-
bers were given lengthy
prison terms for the murders
of 12 women in a Mexican
city on the U.S. border where
hundreds of women have died
in a mysterious 12-year kill-
ing spree, court officials said
on Friday.
More than 340
women have been stabbed,
strangled and bludgeoned to
death in Ciudad Juarez, south
of the border from El Paso,
Texas. Most murders remain
unsolved.
They commonly involved
sexual assault and are generally
attributed to serial killers, rogue
drug cartels and rampant domes-
tic violence.
The court in Chihua-
hua, the capital of the Mexican
state that includes Ciudad
Juarez, sentenced four members
of the Los Toltecas street gang
to terms of between 20 and 113
years for the rape and murder
of six women in the city in
1999.

'a', a a' aa.' '~ a


In a case heard by a
second judge, the court jailed six
alleged members of the Los
Rebeldes or 'The Rebels' street
gang to jail terms of between 24
and 40 years for another six
murders.
Last year, President
Vicente Fox appointed a special
prosecutor to investigate the
wave of killings in Ciudad
Juarez, which emerged in a re-
cent survey as the most violent
city in Mexico.
Special prosecutor
Maria Lopez called for miscon-
duct charges to be brought
against 100 police and criminal
prosecutors involved in the
case, alleging shortcomings in-
cluding sloppy handling of fo-
rensic evidence.
Prior to the sentences
handed down by the court on
Thursday, the ongoing investi-
gation had led to the conviction
of just two suspects: a local bus
driver and an Egyptian chemist.
Rights groups say
many of the murder victims
were working mothers em-
ployed in factories in the
desert-ringed city. Earlier
this year the state created a
compensation fund to provide


cocktail parties to protest
against a crackdown on dis-
sent and other human rights
violations.
The practice so in-
censed President Fidel
Castro's communist govern-
ment that it shut its doors to
European diplomats,
shunned ambassadors and
did not return telephone calls.
The diplomatic
deadlock ended last week af-
ter EU member states' em-
bassies decided to make their
contacts with Cuban dissi-
dents more discreet but not
to abandon them.

Correcting gross


disservice

IN HIS New Year address to the nation, President
Bharrat Jagdeo considered it necessary to refer'to a
litany of complaints he had received In 2004, during vis-
its to various communities, about failures that could-and
should have been avoided in relation to implementation
of government projects and provision of serylces.
It was quite enlightening to hear a head of state
choosing such an occasion to bring to the nation's at-
tention how people are being treated unfairly or.short-
changed in the governance process, with the hope for
a speedy correction of such negative attitudes and
practices-..
"As I move around Guyana", said the President,
"I continue to receive complaints about the. unrespon-
siveness of some government functionaries towards
members of the public delays in ferry services, long
waiting times at some public health institutions; flood-
ing because of negligence; of pensioners waiting for
years for waivers from payment of water rates for
which they are eligible; endless woes of lack of water
supply, despite my government spending millions in that
sector...
"I am deeply concerned also when many poor

be provided free. I have instructed the Minister of
Education to investigate these complaints and take
necessary action...
"More recently, teachers in a few Regions not
being paid by the-Treasury wages and salaries be-
fore the.Christmas season".
President Jagdeo then asked a most perti-
nent question, one that 'should be of concern to ev-
ery Minister: and Ministry; Permanent Secretaries,
Boards and Chief Executive Officers of state corpo-
rations as well as relevant trade union officials aware
of their own responsibilities:

tudes and negative practices of a minority often cloud
the healthy behaviour and good performance of the
majority.

help the country along the road to enhanced social and
economic development.
It may also be an appropriate time for what is
- viewed as an overdue ministerial reshuffle or minis-
terial changes to the President's Cabinet.


"Why should so many people", asked the
President, "be disadvantaged because a few did not
do their duty?" This disservice, the President de-
clared, "must be reduced or eradicated this year..."
Well, having so articulated the complaints en-
countered, the President must now ensure that ALL .. ,
ministries and corporations go on the offensive to ; ...- '
effectively curb, as soon as possible, all such "dis-

Caribbean in

focus



Eyes on USA and

global warming


IT was inevitable, follow-
ing the widespread regional
devastation suffered in 2004
from hurricanes, earth-
quakes, mudslides and floods,
and climaxing with the un-
precedented tsunami disaster
in Asia, that the Caribbean,
like nations around the
world, would become more fo-
cused in 2005 on coping with
natural disasters and the im-
pacts of climate change.
Tomorrow in
Mauritius, the Caribbean region
will have a high profile at the
'United Nations International
Meeting to Review the Imple-
mentation of the Programme of
Action for the Sustainable De-
velopment of Small Island De-
veloping States'.
It is a long name for
what is better known within our
Caribbean Community as the
'Barbados Programme of Ac-
tion' for SIDS (Small Islands
Developing States) that resulted
from the historic UN conference
held in Barbados in 1994.


mats, scientists and environmen-
talists.
The Mauritius meeting
coincides with new and vibrant
calls for the urgent creation of early
tsunami warning systems in this
region and elsewhere, in the wake
of what's viewed as the world's
single greatest natural disaster of
our time as occurred in Asia.
United Nations Secre-
tary General Kofi Annan, has not


at least US$ 1B in cash payments
of the US$3B pledged aid to meet
the dire needs of the Asian tsu-
nami victims. He has also been
influential in stressing the neces-
sity for an early tsunami warn-
ing system for the Indian Ocean.
Here in our own re-
gion, the Barbados-based Carib-
bean Disaster Emergency Re-
sponse Agency (CDERA), in
pointing to the Asian tsunami
disaster, has urged that member
states give priority attention to
financial support for the region's
active involvement in an early


tsunami warning system.
Coordinator of
CDERA, Jeremy Collymore,
noted: "The events of the Indian
Ocean underwater earthquake
have again emphasised the vul-
nerability of the Small Island De-
veloping States (SIDS) and
should further justify the call for
their special consideration in
support of sustainable develop-
ment interventions...
"It also highlights", he
said, "the importance of address-
ing critical threats to the region
other than the hurricane hazard..."

new concerns over natural di-
sasters resulting from climate
change.
And for superpower
United States of America, re-
putedly the world's biggest en-
vironmental polluter, passion
has once again been aroused,
against the backdrop of the In-
dian Ocean tsunamis, over its
stubborn refusal to ratify the
United Nations-brokered
Kyoto Protocol on climate
change, even as scientists and
environmentalists differ over
linking tsunamis with global


warming.
Next month, the
Kyoto Protocol is scheduled to
come into force, binding
industrialized nations to reduce
their carbon dioxide emissions
to the levels of what existed in
1990.
While the USA under
the George W Bush presidency
remains adamant in its opposi-
tion to ratifying the Kyoto Pro-
tocol similar to its attitude in
denying America's recognition
of the International Criminal
Court a firm warning came last
week from the chief scientific
adviser to the British Govern-
ment of Prime Minister Tony
Blair on climate change.
In an article in the Fi-
nancial Times that examined
how a divided world could fail


to effectively deal with the very
challenging problem of global
warming in 2005, Sir David King
was quoted as observing:
"Climate change is the
most severe problem that we are
facing today, more serious even
than the threat of terrorism". Fail-
ure to address the problem, he
stressed, "will result in catastro-
phe...."


PRESIDENT GEORGE W
BUSH

IMAGE PROBLEM

Getting President Bush
on board for climate change-readi-
ness with ratification of the
Kyoto Treaty would be a major
challenge in 2005 of his closest
partner in the pre-emptive war
on Iraq, Prime Minister Blair,
who is currently organising an in-
ternational science conference for
next month and another in March
that would focus on the challenges
of global warming.
Stung by criticisms of
"stinginess" in its initial emer-
gency aid response to the Asian
tsunami disaster, President
George Bush's administration
was to quickly move to repair its
image with a revised commitment
of US$350 million second only
to Japan's US$500 million, until


Australia then decided a few
days ago to increase its aid com-
mitment to some US$800 mil-
lion.
Using its muscle as
the world's most powerful mili-
tary-industrial complex, the
USA has been showing a most
dominant profile in emergency
relief operations for the Asian
tsunami victims.
Although not offi-
cially verbalised, the Bush ad-
ministration would be keen to
make use of the tsunami disas-
ter to improve its image in a part
of the world where hostility to
US policies runs deep, espe-
cially among Muslims.
Among the high pro-
file personalities in television
images sharing grief with vic-
tims of tsunami-wrecked com-
munities was the
administration's best known
"dove", Colin Powell, who is
leaving as US Secretary of State
following President Bush's in-
auguration for a second term
later this month.
But a question of im-
mediate relevance is what kind
of natural disaster will it take
for President Bush to cease be-
ing so very stubborn against the
United States also ratifying the
Kyoto Treaty which provides
the basis for a collective re-
sponse to global warming that
so many nations, among them
America's leading western al-
lies, accept as a major problem
to be tackled?
For us in the Car-
ibbean, right now, we must
await the outcome of this
week's international meet-
ing in Malaysia on the Bar-
bados Programme of Action
for Small Island Developing
States (SIDS).

TORONTO Newly-elected
president of the Guyana Ex-po-
lice Association of Canada
(GEPAC) John O'Dell is very
excited about the responsibil-
ity bestowed on him by mem-
bers of the association at its
annual general meeting, held
last month.
In an exclusive interview
with the Sunday Chronicle,
O'Dell, however, declared that
despite his excitement, he will be
relying on the cooperation of other
members of the executive to chart
the path the association intends
to embark on in the future, point-
ing out that it's not a "stand-alone"
something.
The middle-aged O'Dell,
who'is credited with being the
youngest president of GEPAC,
brings a wealth of knowledge to
the body, as he's currently vice-
president of a telecommunications
union in Toronto with a 14 000-
strong membership.
Strange enough, O'Dell
never served in the Guyana Police
Force but has policing in his
blood. His mother, Gem Sampson-

Latchman, who was last sta-
tioned at Force Control, reached
the rank of corporal (W135),
while his grand-father, Wilfred
Sampson, (#4352) retired as a
sergeant.
O'Dell fondly remem-
bers living in Police compounds
in Georgetown and Linden be-
fore migrating to Canada sev-
eral years ago.
At the onset, GEPAC,
which was established in 1997,
only extended limited member-
ship to children and spouses of
ex-police, but with an amended
constitution, these members
were granted full rights.
According to O'Dell,
this significant change meant
the association catered for a
younger generation, without
discrediting the older folks.
Questioned about his
new role, O'Dell, who served
previously as vice-president
before being elected to the top
post, disclosed that he's look-
ing forward to providing lead-
ership guidance and assistance
in any area of the association
where these are needed.
"We need to get back
to the cornerstone of why the
association was formed to


he said.
O'Dell stated that he


also intends to continue devel-
oping better relationships with
the Guyanese and global com-
munities "so that we can foster a
better interaction among our
youths."
GEPAC's greatest chal-
lenge in the new year is the pro-
motion of its big International
Reunion of former and current
policemen in May, 2006, mark-
ing its 10th year as an associa-
tion. And according to O'Dell,
the celebrations will focus on
persons from Guyana, United
Kingdom, United States and any-
where in the world.
"The intention is to
harmonise friends, build or re-
build new friendships," he
pointed out.
The first International
Reunion was held in May, 1998
and was deemed a huge success,
the highlight being a conference
on crime with the theme 'Cross-
ing Boundaries Building
Bridges'.
In his message on the


targeted group that have inter-
acted with us over time and
would like to share those friend-
ships that have developed in a
meaningful way; we welcome
these groups."
Touching on the
website itself, Moore said it re-
flected the ever-changing dynam-
ics of a growing organisation and
the many changes occurring.
"The information con-
tained herein encapsulates what
we are about, what we are doing
and the direction we anticipate
taking. It makes for interesting
reading for all those who have
interacted with us over time and
those who seek to discover the
many things we are undertaking.
"Across this global vil--
lage are former Police Officers
from Guyana, and elsewhere,
who shared the same law en-
forcement experiences and a par-
ticular workplace culture and
would like to be apprised of the
nature of our activities," he

gether in an atmosphere of
camaraderie, love and fellow-
ship, amongst other things.
Some of the police-
men are worth identifying from
a historical perspective and are:
Aubrey Langhorne (#6736);
Gordon Collins (#6659),
Cleveland Chester (#7326) and
Roger Mattar (#6663).
Under the guidance of
the late Chance, veteran of
World War II, the organisation
took its first breath, and among
its principal aims were to as-
sist members to exercise the
principles of fellowship; to fos-
ter closer relationships among
ex-policemen; to provide activi-
ties that develop people; to
preserve Guyanese culture and


t of GEPAC ...
heritage and assist organizations
and individuals pursuing similar
goals.
In pursuit of its goals
and objectives, GEPAC has been
utilising its human and other re-
sources in the execution of vari-
ous projects over the years.
Among the notable
projects undertaken to date has
been the repainting of the inte-
rior of St Bartholomew Apostle
and Martyr Church in Toronto.
GEPAC also continues
to give donations in cash and in
kind. A quantity of computers
sent to Guyana by GEPAC has
led to the enhancement of the in-
telligence arm of the police. In
August 2000, GEPAC received a
letter of thanks from Bladen Hall
Multilateral School, which re-
ceived a gift of two computers


sent to enhance the curriculum.
The more prominent
charities to which GEPAC
makes monetary contribution
continue to be The Hospital for
Sick Kids and The Herbie Fund
in Toronto.
In December, 1998
GEPAC received a certificate of
recognition from then president
of the Republic of Guyana,
Mrs. Janet Jagan for outstand-
ing community service, at an
awards ceremony.
GEPAC also presents
annual bursary awards to fi-
nal-year high school students
or graduates pursuing law
enforcement studies in
Canada, the two most recent
recipients being Paula
DeLyon and Shaun Yow who
received the awards insti-
tuted to honour the memory

region must examine its im-


pact on people -CARICOM officials


THOUGH the Caribbean
Community (CARICOM)
cannot stop, reverse or even
slow the process of imple-
mentation of its Single Mar-
ket and Economy (CSME),
the region must examine evi-
dence regarding the impact
on people and take appropri-
ate steps to bring relief to the
affected.
This is the view of
CARICOM's Deputy Secre-
tary General, Ambassador Lolita
Applewhaite. Her com-
ments, delivered at the opening


of the 18th meeting of the Coun-
cil For Trade and Economic De-
velopment (COTED) on Tues-
day at Le Meridien Pegasus,
were premised on citizens' fear
about the loss of jobs held by
nationals and concerns that non-
national companies are increas-
ingly occupying what was tra-
ditionally held to be domestic
markets.
The CSME envisions
the pooling of resources, and
bringing together markets of in-
dividual member states. It in-
volves the free movement of


goods, services, capital and
people among member states.
COTED Chairman,
Mr. Michael Jong Tjein Fa,

Guyanese contractor


repairs historic pier


in Barbados


IN WHAT is seen as a further
sign of Guyanese businesses
reaching out into the Carib-
bean market, a small
Georgetown contractor has
landed a job to repair an his-
toric pier at a prestigious ho-
tel in Barbados.
Michael Yearwood
and his firm have been given the
contract to undertake "a com-
plete rebuild" of the pier at the
Grand Barbados Hotel jutting
out into Carlisle Bay on the
south east tip of the island. The
pier is nearly 200 years old. It


is considered by conservation-
ists to be part of the island's
cultural heritage.
The project entailed
Yearwood, his 'main man' and
fellow Guyanese Fitzroy
Goodasaul, and Barbadian help
tearing out rottein or unstable
parts of the largely wooden
pier. They were replaced with
Guyana-sources greenheart and
purpleheart wood fastened with
stainless steel bolts and angle
metal. Greenheart railings were
also installed.
The walkway, which


leads to one of the hotel's restau-
rants, 'The Schooner Room', was
covered with greenheart tongue
and groove wood. The Guyanese
are working with an engineer to
ensure all the specifications were
up to par. The pier, which is ap-
proximately 25 metres long, has
in the past been dama-ged by
rough seas from a passing hurri-
cane.
Speaking with the Sun-
day Chronicle, Yearwood said it
was his first job overseas. He-had
worked on many projects in
Guyana as a sub-contractor. He


started out doing furniture and

How did he see the job

was also grateful that manager
of the hotel, Mr. Louis Ward,
had placed trust in him and
his team to undertake and
complete the job. The hotel
had been chosen by the
Guyana Office for Investment
(GO-INVEST) to mount the
successful Guyana trade expo-
sition earlier in the year.
In an interview, Ma-
jor Michael Hartland of the
Barbados Defence Force said
the pier was once part of the
British colonial fortifications
in the area which include the
present BDF barracks at the
nearby Garrison Savannah. It
was near the engineering depot
and the pier was used to
offload munitions and other
materials from ships anchored
in Carlisle Bay. The pier was
probably in operation around
the early part of the 18th cen-


tury, he added. The structure,
at the end of the pier, was built
in the last century, when an-
other hotel, the Aquatic Club.

Guyana does not feel that big
firms, capable as they are,
should only get contracts or
get the bulk of the work. The
work must be spread out so
that small, medium and
larger firms get a slice of the
pie, according to if they are
tooled up and manned to do
the job. I believe this is be-

Model
Prita


By John Bassier
ALMOST 30 years ago, I
stated that there was evidence
that Georgetown was sinking.
In recent years, the
recurrent and worsening
flooding of the city provides
added evidence to support this
view.
The sinking or the land
subsidence is due to the
extraction of deep groundwater
for potable water supply. Every
day millions of gallons of
groundwater are pumped from
below the city from depths
between 1,000 and 2,000 feet.
This water is being mined,


LEAP Invites applications for tenancy to the Business
Incubator

The Linden Economic Advancement Programme (LEAP), a programme of the
Government of Guyana and financed by the European Union, is assisting the
local private sector of Region 10 in creating and expanding businesses. One of
the core activities of the programme is the establishment of a (managed)
Business Incubator for businesses in the start-up phase of their operation. The
LEAP Business Incubator is the first of its kind in Guyana and is strategically
located in the commercial centre of Linden Republic Avenue.

Business Incubation nurtures businesses in the start-up phase by providing
managed workspaces at affordable rates and support services such as training,
technical assistance and marketing. Incubator tenants, therefore, benefit from
relevant and affordable resources and services while operating in an
environment that helps create opportunities for business networking and other
benefits essential to the success of the business.

LEAP has available for immediate occupancy, managed space consisting of 10
incubation spaces of 230- 300 square ft and 2 spaces of 450 square ft each for
light manufacturing businesses. The centre will also cater for businesses that
wish to utiliselthe services but are not housed in the facility, these are referred
to as virtual tenants and commercial tenants; and commercial tenants who do
not benefit from the incubation process and pay full cost of operation.

The incubator tenants will access numerous benefits from a carefully managed
programme of support which will contribute to their business success.

IF you have a concept or idea that has the potential for growth and job creation
in the short to medium term, and
Your business is in the start-up phase of operation.
If you have a viable business plan, and
The business has the ability to pay rental and other associated charges.and
You can demonstrate that the business has the ability to exit the incubator,
once the programme of incubation is completed (a maximum of three years);.
Then you can become a tenant of the BIC.


LEAP invites interested businesses and individuals to apply.

Commission. rogramme


that is, the water-bearing
formations (aquifers) are not
replenished or recharged by
percolating rainwater because
the aquifers are deep and are
sealed by the over-lying
impervious clay. So, as water is
pumped out, the material above
moves downwards to fill the
space that was occupied by the
water. This is what causes the
subsidence.
In recent years more wells
have been drilled in the
Georgetown area and increasing
amounts of water are being
extracted. It is likely that this
would have aggravated the
problem.
Land subsidence is an
irreversible process; the
environmental damage done
cannot be repaired. The only
way to avoid land subsidence is
to stop pumping- out the
groundwater. This may sound
impractical but it is the only
long-term solution.
Another issue that is
particularly relevant to the
flooding of Georgetown and the
Guyana coastline as a whole is
"Sea Level Rise".
Today, climatologists
around the world agree that
there is global warming and
warn of its consequences,
which include Sea Level
Rise. If Georgetown is to face
the double danger of Land
subsidence and Sea Level
Rise then it's not too early to
start thinking of the actions
needed.
; Measurements to
determine the amount or rate of
subsidence could prove to be a.
very difficult task. Precise
surveys or levelling are tied to
a fixed point of reference or
datum point. In Guyana, the
national datum is a point fixed
to the Lighthouse at the north-
western edge of the city. As
such, it is sinking as well and
cannot therefore be used as a


point of reference.
ALTERNATIVE SOURCES
OF WATER
The flooding and
groundwater abstraction are
inter-linked and therefore the
groundwater problem needs to
be addressed.
I suggested earlier that the
way to avoid further subsidence
is stop the extraction of deep
groundwater in the Georgetown
area. Of course this is
impractical in the short-tern but
it is certainly feasible in the
long-term.
There is no shortage of
water in Guyana. The Upper
Sands aquifer is known to be
recharged. (This aquifer
outcrops as "White Sand" area
in the Soesdyke-Timehri area
and beyond) and represents an
inexhaustible source of
groundwater if exploited outside
the Georgetown area where it is
saline. (The Americans are going
to Mars in search of water why
can't Guyanese go a few extra
miles?)
True, this water has a
high iron content but this is
easily removed by standard
water treatment technology.
About 90% of Guyana's
potable water supply is
abstracted from the coastal
artesian basin but little is known
about this vital resource. Most
importantly, we need to:know
the recharge conditions, the
connectivity with the sea and
the existence, if any, of other
aquifers.
Knowledge of the
connection with the sea is
important because of the risk
of sea-water contamination.
In Suriname, where the
hydrogeological conditions
are similar, if not identical,
being part of the same system,

(From page 12)
a number of wells had to be
abandoned in recent years
because of sea-water
contamination. This should
have set off the alarm bells in
Guyana but it seems that no
one is listening.
Several recommendations
for a detailed study of the
groundwater conditions have


been made to the government
dating back more than 30
years but no action has been
taken.
Yet elaborate plans have
been drawn up to further exploit
this resource. [I personally
recommended a groundwater
study in the 1970s as Chief
Hydrometeorological Officer
and more recently in 1992 as a
WMO Adviser].


The cleaning and dredging
of drainage channels might offer
some temporary relief; the real
problem is deep down.

mies of scale and many
opportunities for the people of
the Community, he said.
CARICOM mem-
ber states have all indicated
that they are on track to meet
the December 31, 2005 dead-
line for implementation of the
CSME. Next month, in
Georgetown, Jamaica,
Trinidad and Tobago and Bar-
bados are to sign the agree-
ment to bring the CSME into
force.
But recently, several
issues were raised which sug-
gest that there is still some in-
sularity as well as uncertainty
with regard to the CSME.
Earlier in the week,
the media exposed the plight
of a Guyanese journalist, Clive
Bacchus, who has been work-
ing in St. Kitts for the past
seven years, but who could
lose his job by month-end be-
cause of tighter restrictions
over work permit renewals in
the island.
Bacchus, who is the
General Manager of the pri-
vately-owned WINFM, said
that his request for a renewal
of his work permit in the fed-
eration was refused. He re-


ceived a letter from the lands"
permanent Secretary in the Min-
istry of National Security calling
on the post to be advertised to
ensure there are no qualified na-
tionals capable of serving in the
position. He has until January 31
to legally work on the island
should someone more qualified
be found for the job. According
to Bacchus, the new request has
stunned him since the rule usu-
ally applied only to first time for-
eign nationals.
The free movement of
persons, initially open to four
categories of skilled persons
which include media workers, is
to be facilitated by the elimina-
tion of the need for passports and
work permits, facilitation at im-
migration points, parity in aca-
demic qualifications and
harmonisation and transferability
of Social Security benefits.
The Guyana Press As-
sociation (GPA) and the Associa-
tion of Caribbean Media Work-
ers (ACM) have issued state-
ments in which they recorded
their displeasure at the treatment
of Bacchus. The ACM
has also contended that the situ-
ation constitutes a blow to the
best intentions of CARICOM
member states that have openly
declared their support CSME.

(JCTU) Senator Dwight Nelson
is of the view that the
workforce there may not be
prepared for the competitive
nature of the CSME.
An article carried in
the Jamaica Observer and re-
printed in yesterday's edition of
the Guyana Chronicle quoted
Nelson as saying that most of
the Jamaican labour force has
no training. He said that "inef-
ficient workplaces and back-
ward management" only serves
to compound the problem.
"The fact is that 74
per cent of our labour force
have had no training whatsoever,
neither vocational, certification,
or in house training of any form.
How are our workers going to
compete with those from the
other islands? Our workforce is
going to be at a very serious
disadvantage," Nelson said.
He suggested that the
country do a serious manpower
audit in terms of the available
skills, the level of training and
in specific areas as a matter of
urgency.
According to Nelson,
the country's workforce was
not properly prepared to make
the best use of whatever oppor-
tunities would arise from the
implementation of the CSME
agreement.
Late last year, indica-
tions of a pending hostile take-
over of beverage conglomerate,
Banks DIH Ltd. by Trinidadian
firm, Ansa McAl led to protests
and a flood of letters to news-
papers on the pros, and mostly
cons, of such a move. .
The Gejaeral-Wiiers
Union (GWU) which M5seats
BANKS DIH workers h.M said
that the proposed takeover
would put Guyana in jeopardy.
The Union's President, Mr.


Norris Witter, predicted th"
workers would be out of job
and some $3B which the corn
pany contributes to the nation
economy through corporate an
consumption tax would be lost
A number o
organizations including th
Guyana Agricultural Worke
Union (GAWU), and the Afr
can Cultural Development Ass
ciation (ACDA) had pledge
their solidarity to Banks DIH.
Ansa McAl, produ
ers of Carib beer, later stat
that they had made no offer I
acquire the majority shares i
the Guyanese-owned company3
Those issues notwit
standing, Ambassado
Applewhaite has declared 200
to be the "Year of the Singl
Market" and noted that corn
pleting the legal framework fo
the CSME had been at the cen
tre of attention in 2004. The re
vised Treaty has been ratified
by all but three members states
She said that com
pleting the CSME is the onl3
viable option in the immediate
and foreseeable future. Impor
tant issues for the CSME fo
this year include Financial Ser
vices Policy Harmonisation an
Capital Market Integration.
In making the CSME
reality, the ambassador states
that the instruments for hassle
free travel have been introduce(
throughout the market and com
mon lines for all CARICOM Na
donals ha'e been established a

Persaud pointed out that a
suitably designed monitoring
network will detect such activity
thereby giving advance warning
of eruptions.
A Volcano Monitoring
Network is performing such a
function and serves as a tool to
investigate the characteristics of
not just imminent, but also
ongoing eruptions, he explained.
He said the network and
warning system will not
exclusively minimise the risk
posed by the volcano, but the
backbone of the network is an
array of sensitive seismic
stations designed and configured
to provide real-time data to
detect, locate and further
parameterize a range of

nal published a scientific sur-
vey of households in Iraq that
calculated more than 100,000
civilians, mostly women and
children, have died from war
related causes.
The study, formulated and
conducted by researchers at the
Bloomberg School of Public
Health at the Johns Hopkins
University and the College of
Medicine at Al Mustansiriya
University in Baghdad, involved
a complex process of sampling
households across Iraq to com-
pare the numbers and causes of
deaths before and after the inva-
sion in March 2003.
The mortality rate in these
families worked out to five per
1,000 before the invasion and
12.3 per 1,000 after the invasion.
Extrapolate the latter figure to
the 22 million population of
Iraq, and you end up with
100,000 total civilian deaths.
The most common cause of
death was aerial bombing fol-
lowed by strokes and heart at-
tacks. Recent civilian deaths in
Fallujah would undoubtedly add
significantly to the total.
The Iraqi word for disaster
is museeba. Surely the lose of life

According to Persaud, Kick-

subduction zone, which is
formed by an oceanic plate

Ridge, as it is pushed under the
Caribbean Plate. (The outer
surface of the earth is made of
12 major plates and several
smaller plates. These plates

earthquakes and some three
hundred aftershocks,"
Persaud recalled.
"Everybody knows about
Kick-'em-Jenny but Guyana
faces a much greater threat from
the La Palma volcano located in
the Canary Islands," he added.
The Canary Islands are a
group of seven major volcanic
islands that extend for almost
300 miles (500 km) east to west
about 60 miles (100 km) off the
coast of northwest Africa.
Volcanic activity of the
island group spans 20 million
years and becomes progressively
older to the east, while the age
for the main subaerial shield
phase for Gran Canaria is about
14 million years.
According to Persaud,
volcanism in the Canary Islands
is associated with the transition
from continental (Africa) to
oceanic (Atlantic) lithosphere
(crust of the earth) within the
Africa plate, the effects of the
tectonics (earth's structural
features) of the nearby Atlas
Mountains and the very slow
movement (about one cm per
year for the last 60 million years)
of the African plate.
La Palma is a
stratovolcano (a volcano
composed of both lava flows
and pyroclastic material) and
is the largest of the western
Canary Islands. It stretches
21,320 ft (6500 m) above the
surrounding ocean floor.
Two main rock layers
separated by a line about 1.400
feet (427 m) above sea level
make up La Palmna.
Persaud explained that
strong erosion of the island over
time is shown by hundreds of
meters of gravel mixed in with
basaltic lava flows.
He said that the oldest


I ZJlU lVn vvfI nirl'.Mr. IVi.
Evan Radhay Persaud
volcanic rocks on La Palma are
about 3-4 million years old.
"La Palma has seven historic
eruptions, the most recent in 1971.
Recent craters and eruptive vents are
located along a central line, which
probably represents a major fault.
It is believed that this fault is very
deep and divides the island virtually
into two parts and a strong
earthquake can cause one part of the
island to slide suddenly into the
Atlantic Ocean.
"That can cause tsunamis
to appear on the coasts of
North and South America."
Meanwhile, scientists from
the British Geological Survey
are claiming that it is possible
that at least 500 million metric
tonnes of rock can slide into the
Atlantic, producing tsunamis up
to 50 meters high.
Such large tsunamis have
crossed the Atlantic Ocean in
the distant past and if they
are to reoccur, Guyana's
coastal population would face
dire consequences, Persau4
said.

Guyana s care and



compassion


THE tsunami disaster, which
affected 14 countries in Asia
and Africa on Boxing Day, has
created worldwide shock.
More than 155, 000 persons
were killed, five million per-
sons displaced, and 1.5 million
children have suffered in one
form or another. The Presi-
dent of Guyana, in his New
Year's Address to the Nation,
commiserated with the af-
fected countries and peoples.
He reminded the nation that

The images of the
devastation, the reported rising
number of those who perished
and the millions without basic
necessities food, water, hous-
ing. clothing, and health care -
were grim reminders of the force
of Mother Nature. These scenes


in spite of our own challenges,
we are fortunate in so many
other ways. A timely reminder
indeed.
As soon as the New
Year dawned, Guyanese, indi-
vidually and through various
organizations, were mobilising to
contribute to the global humani-
tarian response effort. The Gov-
ernment, immediately after the
disaster struck, was in contact
with representatives of some of
the affected countries and vari-
ous regional and international
agencies. It took about a week
before the wider world under-
stood th6 full magnitude of the
devastation and an assessment
of the needs of the affected re-
gions.
Once the, global relief
responses were streamlined and
set into motion, tie Government
of Guyapa took the initiative to
contribute more than $10M to
the United Nation's Children
Fund (UNICEF). It further dem-
onstrated solidarity with the
peoples and governments of the
affected countries. The adminis-
tration also supported various

here and across the globe.
Our people's out-
pouring of support and contri-
bution are remarkable. From the
young to the old, the rich and
the poor, all gave what they
could afford. I felt proud as a
Guyanese while participating on
the telethon and listening to the
pledges from $1M, as was the
case of GAWU, to a child emp-
tying her piggybank, which were
reminders of the striking com-
passion and generosity of our
people. Contributions came from
all around, the Capital City,
Berbice, Essequibo, Coast and
Islands, and Linden, to name a
few areas.
There is the sponta-
neous coming together of our
people to help millions who suf-

Curry spice may


fight Alzheimer's


By Amy Norton

NEW YORK (Reuters Health)
The pigment that gives curry
spice its yellow hue may also
be able to break up the
"plaques" that mark the
brains of Alzheimer's disease
patients, early research sug-
gests.
Scientists found that
curcumin, a component of the
yellow curry spice turmeric, was
able to reduce deposits of beta-
amyloid proteins in the brains
of elderly lab mice that ate
curcumin as part of their diets.
In addition, when the
researchers added low doses of
curcumin to human beta-amyloid
proteins in a test tube, the com-
pound kept the proteins from ag-
gregating and blocked the forma-
tion of the amyloid fibers that
make up Alzheimer's plaques.
Accumulation of beta-
amyloid proteins in the brain is
one of the hallmarks of
Alzheimer's disease.
The new findings sug-
gest that curcumin could be ca-
pable of both treating
Alzheimer's and lowering a
person's risk of developing the
disease, said study co-author Dr.
Gregory M. Cole of the Univer-
sity of California Los Angeles and
the Greater Los Angeles Veter-
ans Affairs Healthcare System.
Cole and his colleagues
have gotten funding to begin a
small trial in humans suffering
from Alzheimer's disease.
"The big question is
-how high are the doses we need
to fight Alzheimer's and are they
really safe in elderly patients?"
he told Reuters Health.
The current findings,
published online recently by the
Journal of Biological Chemistry,


add to the body of research
pointing to curcumin's medici-
nal value. Long used as part of
traditional Indian medicine,
curcumin is now under study
as a potential cancer therapy,
and animal research has sug-
gested the compound might
serve as a treatment for multiple
sclerosis and cystic fibrosis.
Interest in curcumin
as an Alzheimer's therapy grew
after studies found low rates of
the disease among elderly adults
in India, where curry spice is a
dietary staple.
Curcumin is structur-
ally similar to a stain known as
Congo red, which is used by
pathologists to identify amyloid
protein in autopsied brain tis-
sue in order to confirm a diag-
nosis of Alzheimer's disease af-
ter a patient's death.
Curcumin can also
stain amyloid deposits, Cole
said, but it has the additional
ability, when eaten or injected,
to cross into a living animal's
brain aid bind to amyloid de-
posits.
What's more, he ex-
plawedcurcrun is an antioxi-
,lamn_ -anti-inflammatorN
A. d it appears to counter
e t ve damage and inflamn
ma i'that arises in response
to amyoid accumulation.
S"h attacks both the
anmy and the response to
amylod." Cole said.
Because oxidative
damage and inflammation
mark a number of diseases
of aging such as arthritis and
the buildup of plaques in Ihe
heart's arteries Cole said
he and his colleagues hope
that curcumin eventually
proves .useful for a range of
age-related conditions.*

dent for those who perished pro-
vided an opportunity for reflec-
tion, prayers and tribute to the
many victims.
This is the first such
recorded natural devastation of
this magnitude: a grim reminder
of humanity's vulnerability to
the elements.
Our petty squabble
and other difficulties pale into
insignificance when we think
about the impact of this devas-

sition taken by India not to seek
relief and has instead contrib-
uted significantly to some of the
countries is commendable. In-
dia too has been hit hard with
more than 19,000 of its citizens

cision would surely allow the
limited supplies and other re-
lief to go to places which can-
not fully sustain the response

of their citizens.

Man. Utd held by Exeter, City



and Villa exit FA Cup


By Trevor Huggins
LONDON, England (Reuters)
- FA Cup holders Manchester
United were sensationally
held to a 0-0 home draw by
minor league Exeter City as
Manchester City and Aston
Villa suffered third-round
exits yesterday.
Premier League leaders
Chelsea had to come from
behind to beat fourth division
side Scunthorpe United 3-1, and
League Cup holders
Middlesbrough needed second-
half goals for a 2-1 comeback
win over fourth division Notts
County.
Manchester United manager
Alex Ferguson paid the price for


using second and third-string
players against Exeter, who
weathered a late storm as
internationals Paul Scholes, Alan
Smith and Cristiano Ronaldo
came on as substitutes at Old
Trafford.
Manchester City were the
biggest losers, going down 1-0
to third division strugglers
Oldham in a local derby, while
three struggling Premier League
sides lost to second division
clubs bidding for promotion.
Villa, with only one win
in their previous eight games,
lost 3-1 at Sheffield United
after taking the lead, and
Norwich City and Crystal
Palace also went out of the
competition.

Political tensions made India ban games with Pakistan

rot with a stand of 37 before
after consultation with the
television replay umpire.
Looking for a quick single to
mid on, Sarwan failed to beat
Marcus North's direct hit at the
bowler's end in the 25th over.
Lara however, transformed
the complexion of the match
with some extraordinary batting
to guide West Indies to a
morale-boosting win ahead of
their opening match in the three-
nation limited-overs series
against hosts Australia on
Friday at Melbourne.
The West Indies captain
was extremely severe on the
spin bowling of White and
Nathan Hauritz, as the 10 overs
they shared cost 78 runs.
He shared 104 for the
fifth wicket with fellow left-
hander and new West Indies
vice-captain Shivnarine
Chanderpaul, who had just
three boundaries in 42 from
59 balls.
Chanderpaul and Marlon
Samuels fell within four overs of
each other inside the last 10
overs of the match, but Lara
continued to hold sway.
Earlier, the West Indies'
bowling had endured a rough
time at the hands of Hussey,
who had scored 83 against
them in a match earlier in
the week.
After Australia-A had
declined to 102 for five in the
30th over, the visiting bowlers
saw Hussey and White stroke
the ball with crisp assurance,
mixing aggression with sound
defence and good running
between the wickets, to keep
the scoreboard ticking over at a
steady rate.
Gayle however, broke
through with his uncomplicated
off-spin bowling in the 49th
over to have White caught in the
covers before the innings
subsided.
West Indies again face
Austral Atoay.' '

Dogged Taibu rescues Zimoaowe


ST JOHN's, Antigua The West Indies Cricket Board
(WICB) has sent messages of condolence to the Guyana
Cricket Board and the relatives of two former West Indies
Test players who died earlier last week.
WICB president, Teddy Griffith, sent the messages, marking
the passing of Charlie Stayers and Robert Christiani, both
Guyanese who represented the West Indies.
Following are the texts of the messages:
I have been saddened to learn of the passing of Sven Conrad
(Charlie) Stayers.
Charlie Stayers represented the West Indies with
distinction in the four Test matches he played against
India in 1962 and his early departure from the game one
year later at the youthful age of 26, cut short a promising
career.
Stayers had the unique record of having played first-class
cricket for teams in both the West Indies and India, where he
played for Mumbai (Bombay).
The West Indies Cricket Board extends its condolences
to the Stayers family and the Guyana Cricket Board on
the death of the former Test player.
It is with regret that I have learnt of the passing of Robert
Christiani.
Christiani was a versatile member of the West Indies team
during a six-year period from 1948-54 and played 22 Test
matches during which he batted, bowled and kept wicket. He
scored 99 on his debut against England in 1948 at the
Kensington Oval, Barbados, and played in every Test match of
the historic Test Series of 1950. which sawve the West Indies
win its first ever Test series in England.
Apart from England, he also toured India, New Zealand
and Australia with the West Indies and was at the wicket
when the West Indies beat Australia at Melbourne in 1952,
the second time that a West Indies team had won a Test
match in Australia.
His skill against spin bowling and his sure-handed catching
close to the wicket also made him an invaluable member of the
British Guiana team for fifteen years, one as captain, in a career
broken by World War II. The contribution of the Christiani
family to cricket in Guyana is well known as four brothers,
including Robert, represented the territory at the first-class level
with elder brother Cyril also representing the West Indies.
The WICB joins me in extending its condolences to
The Christiani family and the Guyana Cricket Board on
the passing of this talented cricketer.


TATENDU Taibu came to
Zimbabwe's rescue, making
92 against Bangladesh on day
three of the first Test in
Chtttagong.
The skipper fell in the
penultimate over, leaving the
tourists 308-8, still 180 behind
on first innings. Scores: Zimba-
bwe 308-8 v Bangladesh 488.
But it still marked a mas-
sive recovery after the tourists
began the day 84-4 and soon
lost Hamilton Masakadza.
Taibu, who hit 13 bound-
aries, shared stands of 66 with
Brendan Taylor (39) and 119
with Elton Chigumbura (71) to
save the follow-on.

Taibu was annoyed at
missing his first Test century.
"Obviously I am disap-
pointed because I would love to

"We managed to achieve our

Zimbabwe coach Phil

"It showed that there is a

DISCOVERY BAY, Jamaica,
(CMC) Twenty-year-old fast
bowler Jerome Taylor
announced his return to full
fitness in sensational fashion
as he grabbed a five-wicket
haul to give Jamaica the
slight edge on the second day
of their first round 2005
Carib Beer Series match
against the Leeward Islands
at the Kaiser Sports Club.
Bowling with sustained
pace and hostility, the right-arm
quick bagged five for 22, as the
Leeward Islands crumbled to
150 all out in response to
Jamaica 's first innings of 188.
By the close however, the
visitors had hit back with
Jamaica reeling at 39 for three,
a mere 77 runs ahead, with
seven wickets in hand.
Twenty-two-year-old


Taylor, who leapt from
obscurity to international
attention when he made his
Test debut for the West

back in 2003, combined
with pacer Daren Powell to
give Jamaica the early
advantage.
Without a run on the
board, Powell found the
outside edge of Shane
Jeffers' bat with the last
delivery of the innings' first
over, and Lorenzo Ingram
snapped up the chance at
third slip, to give the
Leewards a dreadful start.

BASKETBALLERS take the
court for the first time in the
new year, next week
Saturday, when the
Georgetown Inter-ward
Classic, staged by Courts
Pacesetters, resumes at the
Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
Two triple-headers are fixed
for the weekend, two
competition matches each night,
along with one supporting game
each.
On Saturday, Bank of
Guyana/Caricom Combined
meet Red Cross in the
supporting game from 19:00 h
for a trophy, along with a Most
Valuable Player (MVP) prize.
Then Alberttown/Bourda
take on East Bank Demerara and
North Ruimveldt clash with
Charlestown/Albouystown.
The Red Cross will be back
on the court the following night
to meet the Leo Club in the
supporting game.
In the competition games,
Lodge/Meadow Brook face
East/West Ruimveldt and
Wortmanville/Werk-en-Rust
come up against Kitty/


Campbellville.
All the teams are in a must-
win situation to advance to the
next round.
The competition was put
on hold during the Christmas
holidays after the Christmas
Day fixtures could not come
off due to referees having
some problems to officiate,
and the Boxing Day fixture,
had to be called off because
the world title card was
switched to the Cliff
Anderson Sports Hall from
Thirst Park on account of the
inclement weather.
The organizers had
announced that it would resume
this weekend, subject to
approval from the National
Sports Commission (NSC) for
the use of the venue.
But an international
volleyball meet between
Guyana and Trinidad &
Tobago was scheduled for this
weekend at the venue,
therefore the organizers
settled for next weekend to
resume the inter-ward
competition.

HOBART, Australia (CMC) -
After striking a sensational,
unbeaten century to lead his
side to a four-wicket victory
against Australia A yesterday,
West Indies captain Brian
Lara declared that his team
had come to Australia to win
the VB Triangular Limited
Overs series.
The left-handed Lara, who
failed in the opening warm-up
game against Victoria on
Wednesday, pulverised the
Australian attack in bringing up
a breathtaking 81-ball century,
and said afterward his team was
on a winning mission.
"Knowing that we've got
the title of the ICC
champions behind us, I think
it's enough motivation for the
guys," Lara told the Sydney
Morning Herald. "We're here


in Australia to win."
He added: "We know we're
playing against the world
champions in Australia and
Pakistan is a very, very, good
outfit, unpredictable at times but
very, very good. But we came
here to win and we'd be
disappointed if we don't."
After Wednesday's
embarrassing seven-wicket
loss to Victoria, Lara said the
win yesterday had been vital
for the confidence of his
group.
"I feel the guys are
realising what it takes to
win," the 35-year-old Lara
noted. "We came out of the
ICC tournament, we were
champions, disappointing
against Victoria, but a much
better performance yesterday
and I think it's key that we


.T~

f5-


BRIAN Lara's unbeaten 116
aganist Australia A
win today."
Lara said although there
were still a lot of improvements
to be made, he was happy to
have led from the front.
"Against Victoria, everyone
got into the 20s and nobody
carried on," the batting prodigy
pointed out.
He added: "It's very
important to understand if you
get a start, if you get into the
groove, you've got to try as


much as possible to do the job
yourself.
It's nice to do it in the
second match, get a hundred
and show the guys what is
necessary for us to win."
The West Indies play
Australia 'A' again today in
Hobart, their final warm-up
match before they play
Australia in the opening
match of the VB series on
Friday in Melbourne.


A HIGH-ranking interna-
tional table tennis official
will be here in another two
weeks to assess the local
game that could lead to assis-
tance in equipment and
training.
International Table Tennis
Federation (ITTF) and Latin
America Table Tennis Union
(LATTU) official, Evelio
Alvarez, will arrive on January
16 for a one-week visit to as-
sess infrastructure and develop-
ment plans of the Guyana Table
Tennis Association (GTTA).
The visit is part of the
ITTF/LATTU development
plans and strategy for Lesser
Developed Countries (LCD)
and the Caribbean.
Guyana stand to benefit by
getting six competition tables
and nets, 288 competition balls,
80 beginners racquets, 576 train-
ing balls, along with coaching
programmes for officials and
players.
"This would serve as a
great impetus for sport be-
cause it would offset a great
amount of expenditure," the
GTTA said in a release.
The visiting official will be
conducting sessions for umpires
and coaching sessions for play-
ers at all levels and age groups.
According to the GTTA,


the country was selected for
the programme based on the
performance of players at
various championships, nego-
tiations by GTTA officials at
various fora and the reason-
ably high level of play dem-
onstrated by players at vari-
ous competitions.
The GTTA also said the
visit is timely since the gov-
ernment would be bringing
back the Chinese coach for
another one-year stint from
August.
Alvarez should be meeting
with Minister of Sport Gail
Teixeira and delegation from the
sport ministry, the National
Sports Commission (NSC), the
Guyana Olympic Association
(GOA) and other high-ranking
sport officials.
"The GTTA is very heart-
ened and pleased with these de-
velopments given the many
constraints athletes and sport
organizations face. In this re-
gard, the association would like
to thank the sports ministry and
NSC for their input."
A meeting is scheduled
for Tuesday next at the Cliff
Anderson Sports Hall for
players, umpires, parents and
table tennis enthusiasts to
discuss the Alvarez visit and
other plans for the year.

disappointed again after
persistent rains during the

minute affair will have

HAPPINESS is, quite simply,
feeling nice: a mixture of
contentment and wisdom
laced with bright shining joy.
When we are happy, we feel
gratitude (even when life
seems tough), inner peace,
satisfaction and affection for
ourselves and others.
Although retail therapy may
certainly help raise your
spirits (temporarily),
lasting happiness is not
dependent on money
and material things. It
is a feeling of being at
peace with yourself and
being able to take
pleasure in small
things; a stupid joke,
looking at a dog
bounding around on the road
or a beautiful plant, the smile
on the face of a child, help
from a stranger, drinking a
nice cold beer.
Happiness is available to
anyone at any time -
completely free because it is
inside you. You can never find
happiness by searching because
that implies it comes from
outside yourself. All you need
to do is choose happiness not
chase it.

can be hard sometimes very
hard but finding this innate
mind-health allows us to be
more easygoing, whatever we
have to cope with.
Setting out to be happy
doesn't mean you have to learn
a new technique or do
something special. Of course
that may help, but simply
exercising, say, or meditating
won't, in itself, make you
happy. If they did, everyone
who exercised or meditated
would be busting with joy.
Neither is changing your
circumstances job, home,
partner the complete answer.
The mindset that feels we must
do things different in order to be
happy won't go away when
that change has taken place. It
will just start all over again,
looking for flaws and
conditions that must be met.

'I will be happy when....'
'If only I had done this or so-
and-so hadn't done that'; I'll
be happier if I could live in the
USA instead of Guyana; 'If I
could just get rid of that.' You
know the internal conversations
we all have. You may decide to
make changes 'this girlfriend/
boyfriend will bring me
happiness in the long run' but
it's a mistake to believe that
your happiness is entirely
contingent on someone or
something (Remember: wherever
you go, you are the one who is
there. If YOU are not happy, then
you have recycled the same
problem, just in another place.)
Happiness is working out
your own take on life, the
universe and everything. Getting
happy is a question of learning
to access the place inside
yourself where serenity already


exists and has never gone way.
You don't have to create it. Just
connect with it. Then you can
stop trying to do happy and
simply be happy.
Each one of us is powerful,
creative and brilliant, and life
can be a great adventure. But
when you're anxious, stressed
and unhappy, you fret about
things that don't really matter
- sweating the small stuff and
you can't fulfil your own
potential. If you want to stay
like that, fine! You'll always be
able to convince yourself that
there is absolutely no way you
can change; anyone would be
the same with the stuff you
have to put up with!
But if you're open-
minded to the possibility of
being happier, you can start
right now. It's amazingly
simple.

Getting the best out c


Part 2
gave you soie tips on how to
use microwave ovens
effectively, and some recipes
for delicious, nutritious
dishes that you can make
using a microwave oven. In
this issue we will give you
some safety tips and
microwave shortcuts.
Microwave cooking saves
time in the kitchen, as it is
faster than conventional
methods of cooking, and energy
is conserved. Cooking time is
much faster and in addition,
only the food is heated. In
conventional methods of
cooking, the water and air
surrounding the food are also
heated, thus using up more
energy.
The short interval
necessary between thawing,
cooking, and serving means food
spends less time in the
temperature danger zone (4C-
600C or 400-140F), where
harmful micro-organisms thrive.
One disadvantage, however, is
that food may not be cooked
evenly, leaving cold spots where
bacteria can thrive.
For very busy persons,
reduced cooking time means less
time is spent in the kitchen.
Additionally, there is usually
less clean-up required, as very
often, foods can be served in
the same containers in which
they have been cooked.

IS MICROWAVE COOKING
DANGEROUS?
Most experts think not,
once the door of the microwave
is properly sealed and safety
procedures are followed.
Microwaves are simply a source


of heat energy just like gas and
electricity. There is no evidence
cooking results in any increased
levels of radioactivity, radiation,
or other harmful compounds or
effects in the food. However,
care should be taken to ensure
that the oven door is not
corroded, broken or otherwise
damaged, and that it fits
squarely and securely. Clean
your oven regularly and remove
food particles, especially
around


the door seal. Leftover food can
oxidise and harden with usage
and eventually create holes in
your microwave. Also, make
sure that the lock of latch works
properly to prevent the oven
door from opening while it is
running.

CONTAINERS AND
WRAPS WHAT'S SAFE?
Check for labels that state
that the container is 'microwave


safe'. The best choices are heat-
proof glass and ceramic
warn against using metal
containers, containers with
metal rims, of aluminium foil, as
microwave heat does not go
through metals and they may
pose a fire hazard in most
microwave ovens. Note that
some metal may not be very
obvious, e.g. small objects
such as


been over-heated in a micro\ av 'v
oven. If lIquids bertoew super
heated when the\ are heated pat
boiling temperature., the\ may
erupt explosively while in the
oven or even after removal.
Superheating may occur even
when the liquid does not appear
to be boiling. A slight
disturbance or movement such
as picking up the cup, or
pouring in a spoonful of instant
coffee, may cause a violent
eruption with the boiling water
it is best not to allow them to exploding out of the cup. The

conLainers such as lunch boxes

too long, increasing the
likelihood of burns. Food

certain plastics and plastic hands and faces when hot water
wraps that are safe to use and erupted out of a cup after it had
are labeled as such. The label
'microwave-safe' means that the
item has been tested and any
toxicological effects have been
determined to be low or well
within the margin of safety.
However, even when using
microwave-safe plastic wraps,


substances (e.g. instant coffee,
sugar) are added before heating,
this is much less likely to
happen. Another precaution is
not heating water or liquids for
too long. Once you have
determined how much time is
usually needed to heat the water
just to the desired temperature,
use that time setting regularly.
Be careful with foods that
have distinctly different outer
and inner layers, such as pies,
jelly donuts and fruit tarts with
fillings. The outside may be just
warm to the touch while the
inside is boiling hot.
Do not cook eggs in the
shell. The build-up of steam
inside can cause it to explode.
Similarly, foods with skin may
explode; use a fork or sharp
object to poke holes in such
foods before cooking in a
microwave oven.


Once you have heated
containers such as microwave
popcorn bags, make sure to
open them with the opening
tifued away from you. Some
containers may also become
very hot arid you may need to
use puthulders or oven gloves
to removeshem.
Heating bottles of milk or
feed for .the baby in the
microwave oven is not
recommended simply because
the temperature on the outside
of the bottle may feel safe, while
the contents may be scalding

COOKING SHORTCUTS
Here are some general tips
to make life easier. Remember,
however, that these are just a
guide. The suggested times will
vary according to the amount
and type of food and the
specifics of your microwave,
e.g. wattage. Your microwave
oven manufacturer will likely
have provided you with a guide,
but you can also experiment to
find the ideal methods for your
needs.

Kissina The Cobra


I am currently separated
from my husband who is hav-
ing an affair. We've been
married four years, and we
just bought a condominium.
Things were looking hopeful.
We've had some challenges,
including him not working


much while I supported him
emotionally and financially.
For the past seven months
he's had a steady income, thus
we bought the condo. He cru-
elly announced to me in an un-
safe place-at a conference
where I had professional com-


mitments-that he loves an-
other woman and would have
married her if he hadn't married
me. I am heartbroken.
We've been to marriage
counseling. I've been in shock,
dismay, anger, and terrible grief
as I adore my husband and have


been faithful to him throughout
our marriage. Yet I am not will-
ing to tolerate his behavior, so I
filed for divorce.
I found out the condo-
minium we bought is near where
this woman lives. My husband
wants us to continue and have
her in our marriage, too. He calls
her his concubine. It's so in-
sane!
I've seen them together, and
I go into shock and then extreme
anger at this violation. The vio-
lation is further increased by the
fact she is a doctor of divinity,

LESLIE
Leslie, a well-known televi-
sion executive, now deceased,
was famous for his affairs.
When he finished with a
woman, he would invite her to
lunch at a posh restaurant.
There, over lobster or foie gras,
he would announce the end of
their affair. He counted on the
public surroundings to control
her dismay and anger. This
executive's nickname was the
"Smiling Cobra."
Your husband is another
smiling cobra. Telling you at the
conference was a mean-spirited
and selfish thing to do. You say
you are suffering from emo-
tional numbness, sleep distur-
bances, and disruption of social
functioning. That condition has
a name: post-traumatic stress
disorder (PTSD).
PTSD happens to people
who have suffered life-threaten-
ing events like military combat,
natural disaster, or violent per-
sonal assault. You have suffered
a personal assault and a marital
disaster. You are proceeding on
the correct course. Your
husband's desire to keep a "con-
cubine" ended the marriage.

LOVE

I've been in a relationship with a loving, sweet man.
From the start we spent a great deal of time together.
usually at his house because he has a lot of issues with
panic attacks and driving. As time went on he told me he
loved me and could see spending the rest of his life with
me.
1 thought he was incredibly hot and to be honest. I could
nor keep my hands off him. A month ago I woke up one morning
and fell numb. Everytdung that seemed perfect about him before
seemed imperfect. I started analyzing him and finding a million
things wrong. I een started dreading his daily calls.
He did nothing wrong. I mean. he's been the same person
all along \VWh do I feel this wa. ? My friends think I may have
commitment issues

SAMANTHA

Samantha. we had a golden retriever named Einstein. He bad
hip dysplasia and arthritis, even as a youngster. Some might
have seen a million things wrong with him, but we never did
because we loved him so.
With this man you narrowed your focus to the pleasurable
elements, but at the first inkling of making this permanem, you
were forced to see the rest of him. That's not a commitment
problem. That's realizing you don't want to own all the things
you iee wrong with this man.

Enriching lives through




traditional techniques


The Dentist Advises


IT IS well established and
even confirmed by numerous
international reports that
there is global trend of
increased longevity among
the elderly, especially in the
developed and developing
countries. It therefore seems
logical to assume that dentists
will go on enriching the
quality of the patients' lives
via traditional techniques of
prosthetic rehabilitation.
However, population groups
exist who simply cannot
benefit from current
treatment techniques.
A significant number of
elderly patients are already
without natural teeth and wear
complete dentures with different
degrees of success. Many
elderly patients are edentulous
(missing teeth) and may not be
able to avail themselves of
methods for retention of their
remaining teeth. Clinical
wisdom would suggest
immediate denture therapy for
such patients, particularly if


advanced gum disease is
present.
In order for persons who
have lost most of their teeth to
obtain this satisfaction with
dentures, it is important that the
remaining teeth be preserved no
matter in what condition the
crown may be. These teeth, if
strategically located, may be
retained and prepared for
abutment service as adjunctive
means of support under partial
or complete over dentures.
The mechanical principles
of partial or complete dentures
treatment when correctly
applied are purported to
virtually guarantee a happy
coexistence between dentures
and their host tissues. As a
result, dentists have been
remarkably successful in
convincing themselves, if not
always their patients, that
technically well made removable
dentures can be worn
satisfactorily and perhaps even
indefinitely.
According to reports,


evidence reveals that while it is
difficult to define denture
satisfaction, a significant
number of patients in all age
groups are dissatisfied with
their dentures. Furthermore,
many elderly patients
experience difficulty in attaining
comfortable and efficient oral
function with removable
dentures.
The important relationship
between adequate oral function,
and proper digestion and
nutrition is well documented.
Since the greater the life
expectancy of toothless patients
is likely to go on increasing, the
risk of denture dissatisfaction
and its functional implications
can only be prolonged. This risk
is particularly compelling in the
context of denture supporting
tissues' vulnerability to adverse
changes as a result of long term
denture wear.
There seems to be the
tendency for the all-or-none rule
where retaining teeth is
concerned. It is commonly
believed that it is better to
extract all one's teeth and wear
total dentures rather than
keeping a few and wearing a


partial one; well, that belief may made sure that elderly various techniques, albeit
have been justified 20 years ago, patients with no teeth are by somewhat inaccessible to the
but today, dentists utilise any no means in an irremediable average person that can
few remaining the potential the situation, no matter how significantly take care of
satisfaction for the patient. hopeless their condition seemingly impossible
Modern dentistry had might appear. There exist circumstances.

In an opposition action



Judge rules amendment allowed



only where it corrects error


JUSTICE Kenneth Stoby
was presiding in an
Opposition Action in 1953
when he pointed out that
while the law does not
provide for amendments in
statement of claims to amend
the reasons for opposition, an
amendment is, however
allowed, when it seeks to
correct an error.
That statement was
contained in a decision in the
case of Budhoo versus Allim and
Anor.


Topics discussed at the
four-day hearing included
immovable property;
opposition; pleading;
amendment and rules of court
(Deeds Registry) 1921.
At the trial of the action, the
plaintiff, Budhoo, sought to
amend his statement of claim by
introducing an allegation not
contained in the reasons for
opposition.
The Court held: "In an
opposition action where an
amendment enlarges or alters


the plaintiff's case as set out in
his reasons for opposition, the
amendment ought not to be
allowed, but where it corrects an
error or explains the reasons for
opposition, it is permissible.
Attorney-at-Law W. J.
Gilchrist appeared for the
plaintiff, while lawyers N.O.
Poonai and L.M.F. Cabral
appeared for the first and
second defendants.

opposition", the judge
emphasised.
He added: "In his statement
of claim incorporating these
reasons, the plaintiff pleads thai
the defendant had entered into
a contract with him for the sale
of land on January 28, 1950. It
is not now open to him to allege
an earlier or later contract, for
the moment he does so, his
evidence would be inconsistent


with the contract on which his
opinion is based.
'DEFEAT'
"In this case, the time when
the contract was entered into
may be an important or even
the decisive factor in the case
and to grant the amendment as
applied for would defeat the
provisions of Rule 9.
"If, however, the purpose of
the amendment is not to set up
a fresh contract, but merely to


plead the circumstances leading
up to the contract of the 28th
January, 1950, then such an
amendment would not alter or
enlarge the grounds of
opposition and can be granted."
the Judge declared.
Justice Stoby also said
that the proposed amendment
contains a paragraph which
claims that the receipt of 1st
July, 1949, is a note or
memorandum within the
meaning of Section 3 of the


Judge rules amendment allowed...


Civil Law Ordinance
Chapter 7.
Justice Stoby added: "This
implies that the plaintiff intends
to rely on a contract of the 1st
July, 1949 as an alternative to
the contract already pleaded.
"This he cannot do.
Furthermore, the original
allegation was that $75 has been
paid on account of the contract
of the 28th January, 1950. The
revised allegation is that $75 had


been paid on the 1st July, 1949.
This is self contradictory for the
reason that no contract had been
entered when the $75 was paid.
"If $75 was paid, it was on
an uncompleted contract which
was not concluded until January
28th, 1950.
"It -seems then that the
amendment as framed is a
belated attempt to change the
plaintiff's case.

'GUIANA 1838', the movie set
in 19th century British
Guiana, made its mark in the
world's highest grossing
movie industry, Hollywood.
The film is the first made in
Guyana over the last 25 years
and the responsibility of
attracting other filmmakers to tell
tales about the region rested on
the shoulders of director and
producer Rohit Jagessar who led
a team of 60 actors and
technicians from the US,
England, Israel and India to
Guyana early last year to work
on the production.
During filming, Jagessar
systematically launched a
marketing campaign that
continued to the premiere of the
film in New York on September
24, 2004. By Monday,
September 27, after the film's
premiere weekend, Guiana 1838
made the Hollywood film charts
breaking the highest per screen
average record set in the US.
Jagessar received the phone
call romn his agent aii nudnight on
Sunday September 2b. infomung


as a people and where we are
about to go and what
possibilities lie ahead for us as a
people from a region the world
chose not to think about. I
had planned for this moment
right from the time I
conceived the idea of making
this film about the people of
India, Africa, Britain and
Guyana during colonial times.
And this moment had now
arrived: the moment that
would either put Guyana and
the region in Hollywood history
books permanently or set us
back once again. I took the
phone as if it was the first time
I held a phone in my hand and
my agent gave me the news
straight up. I remember him
telling me to keep the champagne
corked for a few more hours
until Hollywood released its
official numbers."
"The next call came in
around 10 hours later and it
was now official. Not only had
'Guiana 1838' broken the box
office records with the highest
per screen average in the LIS.


And so too, we should. It is the
celebration of our
accomplishments that inspires
those amongst us to go forward
with confidence, knowing that
the impossible is very much
within reach and things we
dream of can become reality. I
encourage our people to tear
down our invisible barriers and
borders with open minds and
humbly celebrate our
accomplishments with pride and
let us continue to move forward
as a people."
I would like to thank my
entire team, my cast and crew,
the media and last but not
least, the fans who stood by
'Guiana 1838' and came in
large crowds, stood patiently
in long lines to see my film,
our film. It is the people that
came to see the film that
brought it to the Hollywood
Box Office charts," he said.
'Guiana 1838' tells the story
of the abolition of African
slavery in the British West Indies

o,,


and the arrival of Indians who
were brought to the colony to
replace the freed slaves on
plantations of British Guiana in
1838. The film stars Kumar
Gaurav as Laxman, Aarti Bathija
as Urmila, Henry Rodney as the
maroon Cabi, Neville Williams
as the African slave Amie, Kiran
Pande as the Indian labour
recruiter Sinha and Thomas
Garvey as David, the fierce
Plantation driver.
The film has now
completed its platform
release and already grossed
about $200,000 on three
screens. It opens wider to 16
screens in Florida on
February 4, and then on to
several hundred US and
Canadian screens during this
quarter. The film will make
its European, Asian, African
and West Indian premieres
during the second quarter of
this year. The DVD release
has been pushed back to
December.


'Some nations would celebrate such accomphshments
as recognized by Hollywood upon "Guiana I838'
triumph. And so too, we should. It is the celebration
of our accomplishments that inspires those amongst
us to go forward with confidence, know ing that the
impossible is very much w ituhn reach and things we
dream of can become reality." Rohit Jagessar.
'Guiana 1838' Director/Producer


him that his film had possibly
taken in the highest per screen
average lead at the North
Amencan bo\ office and should
the numbers hold up into the
next several hours o'er all other
major Holl,\\ood films. "Guiana
1838' could -secure its place in
historN
Jagessar recalled the
moments of that night
"When mv secretary told

HE DOES it by his own rules
but still gets lots of 'oooohhs'
and 'aaaahhs' at every
fashion show.
London was no exception.
Guyanese fashion designer
Derek Moore in December
introduced his brand of vogue at
his first London showing at the
Lord's Convention Centre.
His latest collection, a
mixture of tropical, sexy and
exotic attire, firmly added a
touch of Guyanese-ness to the
fashion show, which was part of
cable channel Original Black
Entertainment (OBETV) first
anniversary celebration.
The event, which started
after 19:00 h on December 18,
2004, proved to be a melting
pot of African, European,
American and West
Indian fashion trends.
Traditional Africa
costumes f ro
Ghana, Nigeria

Sierra Leone to th
sex'n e enin th
gowns of a3
colours and cut s
were the call o |
the night ... .
few women
eten showed the men that
they too could pull off class)
and well-taIlored pants suits
While OBETV Chairman
Bernard Ampaw reminisced
about the beginning of Ihe
stauon and thanked adverusers',
for their continued support.'-4
more than 15 models were in
a back dressing room getting
ready to add the style to the
already exciting evening .
Derek's models were-,-
being made up with
shimmering and earth tone .
colours. Of course, he trusted -
no one to do it That's why'
he did dress fittings the night
before.
"Just making sure
everything looks good and
everyone is happy with
their outfits and the make-
.up looks-good," Dei-e l', .
managed between i"'-


applying power to a model's face
and checking the evening's
programme.
Outside, lights dimmed
and a catchy track filled the
large room. The style
segment kicked off with
collections by OSAAM
Designs and OSEI Designs,
The outfits by African
designers Samuel Mensalb
and Jerry Osei Tutu took the
crowd's breath away. Not thai
any of the more than 15C
specially invited swank guests
couldn't have strutted along
the models' paths in the

figure-hugging dresses with trails
and short cocktail strapless
dresses. The detailed duds
brought an unmistakable richness
of Africa to the evening.
By 22:00 h, the
programme was at its half
way mark. Other forms of
entertainment came:
traditional African dances to
the beats of the drums, and
Caribbean music by
Guyanese entertainer John
'Slingshot' Drepaul. The
crowd's lengthy applause said
it all they loved both.
Then it was Derek's turn to
bring the curtains down on
fashion and culture. His models
were all queens in their own right
thanks to the support of Miss
Guyana World Franchise Holder


they strutted their stuff around
the room elegantly. The line-up
started with truly exotic bright
colourful wraps twisted in all
directions paired with elegant
pants to funky loose tops and
cropped navel-baring tanks
paired with skirts and also
pants.
But it was the shimmering
white sari-styled dress worn by
Miss Guyana World that stole
the show. It was her Miss
World Pageant evening gown.
"Everyone loves this gown.
It's so elegant and delicate that
it captivates everybody,"
Suzette said as she packed her
accessories in the dressing room
after the show. She obviously
heard some of the 'oooohhs' and
'aaaahhs' as she glided between


'2005 has big things in store for me. This is just the
start London. I already have ideas buzzing in my
head. Watch me for Mash in February. And with the
connections I've managed to make here, I plan to take
advantage of it all.' Designer, Derek Moore


convention centre as an
opening. But none was as
brave as the chosen girls.
It was the designers' use of
traditional African colours like
green, yellow and black, and
prints with large and small


shapes that was absolutely
magical. Both collections had a
twist of European cuts combined
with African wraps. The high-
heeled shod exquisite African
models moved around the room
like queens out of Africa in long

Russia, to Miss Tourism World

Brazil, Danubia Sousa, and Miss
Model of the Universe 2003,

Moving to a quick tempo,

"The fashion show was
great. Derek was a big hit
from the first model to the
last. I must say, seeing some
of my Miss World outfits on
some of the other models gave
me a different feeling. They
all looked wonderful," she
said.
By the way, every outfit was
complemented by long strands
of local earth tones beads and
funky short wraparound
versions necklaces.
Derek couldn't stop


smiling. I caught up with him

couldn't expect better. I ni

smiled.
"I loved the other
designers' clothes. They
showed just how many things
you can do with African
prints," Derek, also the
official designer for the Miss
Guyana World Pageant, said

shareholder value ,;n en inacy



-1Y












Your shares have multiplied through Bonus Issues distributed over the years, and the
worth in shares you currently have is far greater that your original investment, e.g., a
shareholder who bought say 10,000 shares in 1993 at the then $9.00 per share would have
invested $90,000 (US$688.) through Bonus Issues in 1994, 1996, 1998,2001 and 2004 that
shareholder now has 84,375 shares a 744% increase at the current stock market price of
$8.00, giving a total value of $675,000 (US$3,309), a return on investment of 650%.r 6.5
times the initial investment.

That shareholder would have also received dividends totaling $177,800 over the period.

Merging the market value of the 84,375 shares of $675,000 and dividends of $177,800,
that shareholder would have a total worth amounting to $852,800 an 848% yield since
1993.

In US Dollars that shareholder using a rate of $130.75 in 1993 and $204.00 in 2004 would
now have worth totaling US$4,180 on his initial investment of US$688.00, a yield of
S ..508%.

In terms of dividend paid in 2004, the 40 cents (40%) paid, based on a current share value
of$8.00, that shareholder gets a Ireturn of 5% tax free which is a better return than bank
rates averaging 4% from which a Withholding Tix of20% is deductible at source.

That shareholder would have received the 40 cents (40%) per share on the Bonus Issue
distributed in March 2004 which effectively carries the dividend rate paid upwards.

All shareholders need to analyse and to appreciate the increased
value of the shares they are holding and the need to maintain or
increase their share portfolio in Banks DIH Ltd.

bowl. Heat on 'high' for 30 to
60 seconds or until dry. Stir
once.
To soften dried fruits,
place in a small bowl and
sprinkle with water. Cover and

towel between each layer of
bacon to absorb drippings and
retain the shape of strips.
To peel onions more

!QUESTION a,
After contributing to NIS for four (4) years, I resigned. I had to i
undergo an operation which was done privately. Will I receive
benefit if I submit my documents? 3

ANSWER

You cannot receive Sickness Benefit, as that will require you 3 I

CURING
Ginger intended for storage
should be cured by air drying
the rhizomes at ambient
temperature (220C to 26'C or
71F to 790F) and 70% to 75%
RH for several days to allow the
skin to thicken and the cut
surfaces to suberize. Curing will
help reduce postharvest weight
loss and decay. Following this
brief curing treatment, the ginger
should be put in well-ventilated
containers for long-term storage.
TEMPERATURE
MANAGEMENT
Ginger may be successfully
stored for several months if the
correct postharvest handling and
storage procedures are utilized,
and healthy, undamaged
rhizomes are initially selected.
The optimal temperature for
storing and transporting ginger
is 120C (550F). At this
temperature, the rhizomes will
remain in marketable condition
for at least 3 months, depending
on initial rhizome vigor and
condition. Holding ginger at
ambient temperatures (250C to
30C or 77F to 86F) will
result in high moisture loss,


surface shriveling, and sprouting
of the rhizome. Market life
under these conditions is less
than 1 month. Therefore, ginger
exports from Guyana can be
made in non-refrigerated marine
containers if the rhizomes are
shipped within a week of
harvest. At the other
temperature extreme, ginger is
very sensitive to chilling injury
and should not be stored below
12C (55F).
RELATIVE HUMIDITY
Dehydration is a common
postharvest disorder of ginger
held under low relative humidity
(RH) conditions (i.e. less than
65% RH). Shriveling of the
rhizome becomes noticeable
after the loss of more than 10%
of the initial harvest weight. On
the other hand, surface mould
will begin to grow at a RH above
90% and sprouting will be
stimulated, especially if the
temperature is above 16C. In
order to minimize weight loss
but avoid surface mould, a
compromise RH range of
between 70% to 75% is
recommended for storing ginger.
Ginger stored at 22C (72F)


and 70% RH for 3 months will
lose about 20% of its initial
weight.
PRINCIPAL
POSTHARVEST DISEASES
Postharvest disease in
ginger is normally due to rough
harvesting and handling
practices which result in injury
to the skin and flesh of the
rhizome. Holding ginger at a
less than optimal temperature
and RH will accelerate
postharvest decay. Postharvest
losses from diseases are caused
by various fungi and bacterial
soft rot. Decay can be kept to
a minimum by following careful
harvesting and handling
practices, sanitation of the wash
water, curing of the rhizomes
after washing to promote
wound healing, application of a
postharvest fungicide, and
holding the rhizomes at 12.5C
(55F) and 70% to 75% RH.
BLUE MOULD
Blue mould, caused by the
fungus Penicillium, is a
common postharvest rot of

ginger stored at a high RH. Blue
mould generally requires
moisture condensation on the
rhizome surface, or storage at a
RH above 95%. Mild surface
infestations may be superficial
only and not cause decay.
However, the ginger has an
unsightly appearance. Blue
mould which develops on cut
9--l- -" .I ::. w.^~ Iill


tissue decay. The rotted
tissue is pale to dark
brown, and may be firm or
soft. Decay is particularly
rapid at temperatures
between 15C and 20C
(590F and 680F).

DRY ROT
Dry rot, caused by the soil-
borne fungus Fusarium, is a
common postharvest disease of
ginger. Infection is typically
associated with wounds or
insect and nematode damaged
tissue. External symptoms of
dry rot include off-coloured dry
sunken lesions on the rhizome
surface. The lesions are
typically bordered by a brown
margin. The fungus
subsequently invades the entire
rhizome, which becomes brown,
dry, and shriveled. In humid
environments, the ginger surface
may become covered with a
dense white mould. Internal
symptoms include a pale
brown discolouration of the
vascular tissue.

WATERY ROT
Watery rot, caused by the
fungus Rhizopus, is one of the


most rapidly developing storage
rots of ginger. Symptoms include
a soft, watery rot that
progresses rapidly and may rot
an entire rhizome in a week.
Infected tissue is mottled brown
and soft, and in a humid
atmosphere the infected area is
soon covered with large amounts
of white mould. The mould will
eventually turn black. Rhizopus
is a wound pathogen and is not
efjfetivp in .olounuiine hbalth'


fungicide 2,6-dichloro-4-
nitroaniline (Botran) applied
just prior to packing may reduce
watery rot during transport to
export market destinations.

PYTHIUM
Pythium is another common
soil-borne fungus that can be
severe on ginger harvested
during the rainy season or on
rhizomes grown in poorly
drained soils. Symptoms appear
as small brownish spots on the
skin, which may rapidly enlarge
into sizeable lesions. As the
decay progresses, the tissue
breaks down into a soft and
watery mass.

ARMILLARIA ROT
Armillaria rot, caused by the
fungus Armillaria mellea, can be
a problem on ginger grown in
recently cleared forest land.
Symptoms include the
development of tough, dark,
string-like growths which adhere
to the rhizomes. These
structures are aggregations of
fungal strands, commonly called
the 'shoe-string fungus'. Control
involves the uprooting of all
remaining tree stumps.


SCLEROTIUM ROT
Sclerotium rot, caused by
the soil-borne fungus Sclerotium
rolfsii, is most commonly found
on rhizomes harvested from
stressed plants. Symptoms of
decay include a well-defined
separation between rotted and
healthy tissue. A white mould
forms on the ginger surface and
noticeable shrinkage of the
rhizome occurs. Small spherical
fungal resting bodies about 1 to


in diameter develop on the
mould. They are initially white
but later turn brown.

BACTERIAL SOFT ROT
Bacterial soft rot, caused
by Erwinia carotovora, is the
principal *postharvest
bacterial disease of ginger.
These bacteria are
widespread, especially in
poorly drained soils, and
enter the ginger rhizome via
wounds in the tissue.
Symptoms of bacterial soft
rot include a soft wet rot of the
tissue, which has a strong
foul odour. Development of
this disease is rapid under
warm, humid conditions.

Postharvest
Disorders

SPROUTING
Ginger rhizomes will sprout
at temperatures above 15.6C
(60F). Sprouting may begin
after several weeks at ambient
temperature. The rate of
sprouting grows as the
temperature increases. Keeping
temperatures at 12.50C (550F)


will prevent sprouting. There is
no effective chemical sprout
inhibitor for ginger.

CHILLING INJURY
Ginger rhizomes are very
sensitive to chilling injury
(CI) or low temperature
breakdown if stored below
120C (54oF). CI is a
physiological disorder that
results in pitting and sunken
lesions on the rhizome


surface, shriveling, softening,
flesh darkening, and
postharvest decay. Shelf life
is significantly shortened and
eating quality of chilled
rhizomes is inferior to non-
chilled rhizomes. The
amount of CI damage to the
ginger rhizomes depends on
the specific temperature and
the duration of exposure to
the low temperature. The
lower the temperature and


longer periods of exposure
will result in more CI. Also,
the damage is cumulative.
Slight injury may occur after
5 days at 70C (45'F). Uncured
rhizomes are more
susceptible to chilling
injury than properly cured
rhizomes. Two weeks of
exposure at 7C (450F) will
result in significant CI and
decay to uncured
rhizomes.

ARIES -- You're the most impulsive fire sign of them all which is saying
something. So it's really not tough to distract you, especially when you're
doing something that you'd really rather not do. At the moment, however,
you will only stop working if you're dragged, kicking and screaming, from
your workplace. Try to keep in mind that even though you're obsessed
with your current project, there are people who'd love to see you just for
a little while.
-^- -^ v- 6-1 I L.""i60 n uiiJa g liv you. rust, y-du re in
total relaxation mode reading the paper in bed, sipping overpriced caffeine
and ignoring the phone. It's your day to devote to total hedonism. Then
there's the fact that the rest of the world will be ready to assume full
responsibility for whatever they say or do, the way that you do on a regular
basis. Yep. It's just good to be you.

GEMINI -- In your own intellectual and articulate way, you've never taken
the issue of closeness lightly, regardless of whether it's physical, emotional
or intellectual. You see getting to know someone as a commitment. Right
now, you're even more intently focused on being faithful, true and honest
to the ones you love. How nice! Use this mood to convince others to do
the right thing with your wonderful gift of gab.

CANCER -- The next couple of days could be extremely stressful or
/ extremely romantic. Since you of all signs know that what's in your heart
often ends up as what happens around you, it's obviously time for you to
i make a choice. It's all about communication in relationships of all types.
Ready for an innovative way to make a new path for yourself? Better be -
because it's about to be offered.

LEO -- You've been working hard, diligently putting your nose to the
grindstone for some time now. And now the stars are setting up such an
amazing set of influences well, let's just say you're geared up for far more
than a casual congratulatory pat on the back. It's time to make arrangements
discreetly, of course for celebrations with you as the guest of honor.
Congrats!

VIRGO -- You've got one more day left to have some serious fun, and
you're quite ready to take full advantage of the situation. With several
astrological influences putting love in the spotlight, you're ready for
whatever comes along, and you should definitely focus your attention on
romance. The stars are sending along a day or two of nice, earthy affection.
Ready or not, here it comes!

LIBRA -- Your home and family issues need some straightening up, and
you're perfectly ready to get the show on the road. Of course, with the
stars in a serious mode, you've really got only one option: to make some
profound changes, no matter how odd or unusual. In fact, you might have
to let your dear ones know that you're entirely serious. Ready?

SCORPIO -- You may not have exercised perfect judgment exactly when it
came to making a recent financial decision, but now you can rest easy. The
stars are on your side, revving up to let you know that you can depend on
your dear ones and vice versa and you'll be only too happy to share
your questions (and answers) with them. If you're wondering about a
financial issue, there's really no one better to ask.

SAGITTARIUS -- Even though the shopping season is now officially over,
you've still got things to buy think of them as belated holiday gifts. Does
this mean you'll need help getting in and out of the mall without laying
waste to your credit cards? Could be. Some sales may seem innocuous,
but what's too good to be true just might be. Why take chances? Take
someone along whose judgment isn't easily swayed.

CAPRICORN -- Talk about busy. There's a formidable astrological team
on guard duty in your house of personality, and you'll be putting out 'pick
me, pick me' vibes when any situation that requires leadership arises.
Anyone within shouting distance will be more than happy to let you have
your wish, too especially with your past history of competence. Don't
forget your vitamins.

AQUARIUS -- Better think really hard about it before you even consider

continued


LAST year (it
seems so long
ago), we had
decided to ease a
bit on the science and dwell -
during the Christmas Season -
on more flippant issues. Today,
we are back with the science.
You may recall that we
were discussing the features to
which special attention must be
paid when we are purchasing or
adopting a young puppy. We
ended up by referring to some
aspects of the physical


examination. Let's continue in
this vein.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION
OF THE MALE PUPPY

In addition to all that we
mentioned in the TVAs of
December 2004, we must now
specifically examine the
reproduction organs of the male
puppy.
Firstly, push the foreskin
back to confirm that it slides
back and forth easily. Adhesions


between the prepuce and the
head of the penis, as well as
strictures of the foreskin, require
veterinary attention. Both
testicles should be present in
the scrotum. A dog with an
undescended testicle cannot be
exhibited at Pet Shows and
should not be used for breeding.
Female puppies Examine
the vulva. Look for pasting of
hair or discharge. Juvenile
vaginitis is a common problem
and requires treatment.
The skin and hair around the
anus should be clean and
healthy-looking. Signs of
irritation, such as redness and
hair loss, indicate the possibility
of worms, chronic diarrhoea, or

a digestive disorder.
The coat should be bright
and shiny and carry the correct
colour and markings for the
breed. Excess scales, itching of
deposits in the coat suggest
mites, fleas and other parasites.
Moth-eaten areas of hair loss
are typical of mange or
ringworm.
Generally, both male and
female puppies must be
examined for soundness and
correct structure. The legs
should be straight and well-
formed. Structural faults include
legs which bow in or out, weak
pasterns, flat feet with spread
toes, and feet which toe in at the
rear.
The gait of the puppy
should be free and smooth. A
limp or faltering gait may simply
be due to a sprain or hurt pad,
but hip dysplasia and other
joint conditions would have to
be considered.

Please implement
disease prevention
measures (vaccinations,
routine dewormings,
monthly anti-
Heartworm medication,
etc) and adopt-a-pet
from the GSPCA's
Animal Clinic and
Shelter at Robb Street
and Orange Walk, if
you have the
wherewithal to care well
for the animals. Also,
find out more about the
Society's free spay and
neutering programme

By Michael Paoletta

NEW YORK (Billboard) Remix pioneer
Tom Moulton has been busy revisiting
nuggets from the Motown vaults. One or two
of these may find their way onto 'Motown
Remixed', a collection the label is releasing
March 29.
Thus far, Moulton has remixed the
Commodores' 'Three Times a Lady', the
Miracles' 'Do It Baby' (post-Smokey Robinson)
and the Supremes' 'Stoned Love'.
Those familiar with Moulton's work ethic
know that his remixes are made without
sacrificing a song's original intent. In other words,
unlike the bulk of today's remixers, Moulton does
not create a brand-new track around the original
vocals.
Instead, he uses elements from the original
version of the song. He will extend a portion of
a song, re-loop a section or discover a vocal part
on the master tape that was never used before.
In this way, he is like a master excavator, digging


les

j


up this and that to uncover a long-hidden gem.
"Too often, the instruments on these older
songs were recorded without much care,"
Moulton says. "You listen to the master tapes
and it is not uncommon to hear things recorded
in a sloppy manner or to hear lots of noise in
the mix. So, I do what I think needs to be done."
While Harry Weinger, VP of A&R at
Universal Music Enterprises and
producer of 'Motown Remixed' would
not confirm which, if any, of Moulton's
remixes will make the final track list,
he does confirm the following
selections: Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It
On' (remixed by Paul Simpson & Miles
Dalto), the Jackson 5's 'I Want You
Back' (Z-Trip), Eddie Kendricks' 'Keep
on Truckin' (DJ Spinna), the Supremes'
'My World Is Empty Without You'
(Tranzition) and Smokey Robinson's
'Quiet Storm' (Rafe Gomez & David
Baron), which features the legendary
vibes man Roy Ayers.

NASHVILLE (Billboard) -
Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell
will make his first foray into
the Christian music market
next rall when he releases his
debut solo album.
Littrell is talking to
,producers, but hasn't nailed
anyone down. He does have
some songwriters in mind,
'though.
"I would like to collaborate
with Michael W. Smith," he
says. "We've been talking about
that for years, and now we can
start getting these things in
motion. I'm looking for outside
stuff, and I've got a lot of
Material in my head as well."
S Littrell, who grew up
attending a Baptist church with
his family in Lexington, Ky.,
hopes his record will encourage
others to be onen about their


faith.
"I want to say, '(Don't) be
afraid ... stand up for what you
believe in," he says. "'Don't be
afraid to tell your friends that
you believe in the higher
power.'"
Littrell says marriage and
fatherhood have strengthened
his faith. "My values have
changed. I'm in a selfless
situation rather than a selfish
situation because it's not about
me anymore, and that's the way
I want my career to be. It's not
about me. It's about God."
His album will be released
on Nashville-based Provident
Music Group's Reunion
Records, home to Smith as well
as to Casting Crowns and Joy
Williams, and a corporate
sibling of the Backstreet Boys'
Jive/Zomba label.
"We have not taken an
artist with seven million


records under his belt and
done this before," says Terry
Hemmings, president/CEO
of Provident Music Group.
"But there's such great
confidence in Brian. He's
genuine and real. People will
see that. I know he can sing.
We all do. I think people will
be interested in buying the
record."
