More relief




supplies arrive

Overseas-based religious organizations pitch in


By Shauna Jemnott
OVERSEAS-based religious
organizations collaborated
with Travel Span and Trans
Meredian Airlines to fly in
much needed relief supplies.
Early yesterday evening, a
Boeing 757 landed at the
Cheddi Jagan International
Airport, Timehri with food
and other supplies.
The Travel Span plane
landed at the Cheddi Jagan In-
ternational Airport around 17:35
hours yesterday, and the sup-
plies were handed over to the
Government, and members of
various organizations that have
been active in the drive towards
providing relief to victims of the
unexpected flood.


President and Chief Execu-
tive Officer of Travel Span, Mr.
Nohar Singh was among the
team of business people, aid
workers and journalists visiting
Guyana for a few hours to de-
liver the items, highlight the
plight of coastlanders and
sympathise with Guyanese.
He said his company has
collaborated with Trans
Meredian Airlines to offer free
flights to transport relief sup-
plies from the United States to
Guyana, to assist the country in
dealing with the effects of the
floods that have caused three of
its Administrative Regions to be
declared disaster areas.
"This is a very emotional
moment for all of us," Mr. Singh
said. He added that his com-


pany takes great privilege in
serving the people of Guyana at
a time when it is faced with
such a catastrophe.
The gesture is out of pure
compassion, he assured.
A portion of the supplies
was handed to the Central Is-
lamic Organisation of Guyana
(CIOG). The CIOG had made
pleas for overseas assistance
from its sister organisation,
Masjid al-Abidin in Richmond
Hill, Queens, New York.
The Guyana Hindu
Dharmic Sabha, and the
Guyana Council of Churches
were also presented with por-
tions from SWAHA, a Hindu

Thorough assessment of shelters




to be undertaken Ramsammy


Some9-ay b e -,. clsdt9e ubako i a-a


By Delana Isles

SEVERAL relief shelters on
the East Coast ,Demerara
would have to be closed to
-stem the spread of diseases.
Minister of Health, Dr. Leslie
Ramsammy niade the
pronouncement yesterday
afler visitingg -shellers on the
East Coast and noting the
copiousness of disease and
illnesses.
fle said their risk of
contracting diseases had
increased because of the large


number of persons at some of
the locations identified to house
those who have been displaced
by the recent floods.
The Minister suggested that
in areas where the water has
receded significantly, persons
should return to their homes,
since it has now become less
risky.
According to Dr.
Ramsammy, over the next two
days, the government plans to
carry out a thorough assessment
of the shelters. At those shelters
that have to remain operational.


NOTICE

Due to the present flood situation in our country, the
Medical Termination of Pregnancy Advisory Board
(MTPAB) would like to inform all individuals and
organizations that were invited to the One-day
Consultation which was scheduled to be held on
Thursday, February 3, 2005 at the Demerara
Mutual Life Conference Room, that the
Consultation has been postponed to a date to be
announced later.
The MTPAB regrets any inconvenience that this
postponement may cause.

Public Hospital Corporation
(GPHC). said that they intend
to render any medical assistance
required in the area as a result
of the flooding.
Another medical teamit
dispatched by Ministry of
Health was stationed at
Haslington, and comprised
three Ministry of Health
staffers and a medical doctor.
Dr. Mohan Lall. Dr Lall said
that the team has seen more


than 500 persons in the two
days that it has been at the
site and most of the cases
were of diarrheal problems,
hypertension and skin
rashes.
Though water in some of
the villages has receded
significantly, shelters, -such as

Primary Schools in Mahaica
have more than 200 persons.
most of whom are children. The
two shelters are manned by
personnel from Guyana

Defence Force. The soldiers said
that the babies in theses shelters
are continually getting diarrhea
and vomiting and constantly
complain of severe abdominal
pains.
The GDF team said that
most of the residents can move
back into their homes, but said
that the worms that are in the
water can be a potential
problem should they do so. The
Minister told them that the
problem will be looked into, as
some level of normalcy should
be restored to the areas.
The flood situation has
abated to a significant degree
on the East Coast Demerara,
and help in the form of
medical treatment is the chief
concern of all residents.

t


By Chamanlall Naipaul
COORDINATOR of the Joint
Operations Centre (JOC)
Colonel John Lewis has re-
ported that overtopping at
both the East Demerara and
Boeraserie Conservancies has
stopped, but he assured that
the Guyana Defence Force
(GDF) will continue its re-
connaissance and monitoring
by both aircraft and the Coast
Guard.
Speaking at a press
briefing yesterday at the JOC's
Eve Leary headquarters, Colo-
nel Lewis said with respect to
the East Demerara Conservancy,
more than 100 men are patrol-
ling the embankment with boats
and shoring up vulnerable areas
with sandbags on a daily basis.
Earlier, President
Bharrat Jagdeo had indicated
I. -


that overtopping at the East
Demerara Conservancy was
complicating efforts to drain
off the deluge of flood waters
along the East Coast Demerara
which have swamped villages
for two weeks now.
Colonel Lewis noted
that more boats are required to


boost the logistical capacity of
teams going in to the affected vil-
lages to distribute food and wa-
ter and providing medical atten-
tion. He added that this has af-
fected the outreach efforts par-
ticularly in the backlands where
food and water are in short sup-
ply.


He said that the
Army has 12 boats under its
command but more than 30 awe
required in the present sinuatio.
However. he said with the
pledges from the US. Sauiname
and local sources the required
number should be soon avail-
able.

Good move by


Secretariat

THE Caribbean Community Secretariat de-
serves to be commended for its initiative in quickly con-
vening a meeting on Friday of leading regional agen-
cies in Georgetown to discuss the enormous post-
floods problems facing Guyana and to mobilise, with
urgency, relevant practical support.
What the government and affected people of
this country will now be anxiously looking forward to
is the determination with which the Secretariat and the
regional agencies move to make a reality of their de-
livery capacity of the required emergency assistance.
As Secretary General Edwin Carrington noted
in addressing the meeting, "the magnitude of the envi-
ronmental, social and economic impact on Guyana is
quite significant", and he affirmed that CARICOM would
continue to play its part.


It is to be hoped that with more information
and greater emphasis provided, the Community would
indeed be more forthcoming in responding to
Guyana's unprecedented floods disaster as good
family members of one Community should do with-
out engaging in a game of words.
The officials participating In Friday's meeting
represented quite an impressive network of regional
agencies known for their commitment to serving the
needs of the peoples of the Community:
They comprised the Caribbean Epidemiology
Centre (CAREC), Caribbean Disaster Emergency Re-
sponse Agency (CDERA) and the Caribbean Food
and Nutrition Institute (CFNI), Caribbean Environmen-
tal Health Institute (CEHI) and the Caribbean office
of the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO)
The Caribbean Development Bank, which has
provided an initial grant of US$100,000 to the Guyana
Government to be utilised by CDERA for the benefit
of the most affected communities, and also a soft loan
of some US$600,000, is cooperating with the govern-
ment to determine how it can assist in overall post-
floods rehabilitation and reconstruction.
The CDB would be aware of the huge sums
of expenditure that would be required in areas such
as the provision of effective drainage and irrigation
systems.


It is to be assumed that an effective mecha-
nism for coordinating assistance will be estab-
lished between the Secretariat and the regional
agencies and the Guyana Government for maxi-
mum benefit, in the shortest possible time, for the
flood victims, especially the most deserving cases.

Disappointing aid responses as



CARICOM gears for regional



relief review


financial assistance has been com-
paratively sparse in relation to the
identified needs, and that from
Caribbean Community partners
have bordered between surpris-
ing inaction to sporadic re-
sponses, with Trinidad and
Tobago's commitment to paying
for large drainage pumps a high
priority demand being an excep-
tion.
The most significant
cash donations for emergency aid
by late last week had come from


slides. One constant is "dis-
crimination"
Nevertheless, being a
very politically polarised soci-
ety, it is to the credit of both
the Guyana government of
President Bharrat Jagdeo, the
main opposition People's Na-
tional Congress/Reform of Rob-
ert Corbin, and also the smaller
parties, the business sector and
a range of civil society
organizations, to have so far


THE GUYANA Government
could not .have imagined
when it declared January 5
as an official day of mourn-
ing for the estimated
275,000 who have perished
in the unprecedented
Southeast Asia tsunami di-
saster, that within two
weeks it would be confronted
with a version of a tsunami-
type horror of its own from


cient alerts, floods from heavy
rains could be a bitter sudden ex-
perience. -
This has been the situa-
tion in Guyana over the past two
weeks with the lives of thousands
rudely and painfully disrupted and
the social and economic, impact yet
to be carefully assessed..
There have been six re-
ported deaths. Many millions have
been lost in agricultural crops and


homes looted while unscrupu-
lous business people resorted to
price gotiging before protests
kicked in.
By late last week,
President Bharrat Jagdeo's ad-
ministration was desperately
appealing to the regional and in-
ternational community for emer-
gency relief aid with special em-
phasis on doctors and medical
supplies to cope with feared


water conservancy dirt dam be-
hind heavily populated villages
along the East Coast Demerara.
These include commu-
nities already seriously affected
by the flood waters resulting
from an unprecedented 40
inches- of rain, with some 27
inches this month, the highest
ever in any one month, when it
is normally, at worst, eight
inches. And more rains are ex-

the worst floods to be experi-
enced by the country in some
one hundred years.
Unlike a hurricane,
for which there is often suffi-


livestock and damages to homes
and personal belongings by
spreading flood waters.
Some evacuated flood
victims have had their abandoned


outbreaks of water-borne dis-
eases.
This new challenge has
come as experts evaluate claims
of possible seepage in the main


pected.


AID RESPONSES

International donors'


primarily three sources:
The European Union,
with US$1 million, allocated to
the Guyana Committee of the In-
ternational Red Cross;
US$100,000 in grant aid from the
Caribbean Development Bank,
plus a US$600,000 in soft loan;
and US$100,000 in grant assis-
tance from the People's Republic
of China.
While pledges have been
made by various donors totalling
some US$2 million, including the
United States Agency for Inter-
national Development, approxi-
mately US$300,000 has been
identified for immediate cash con-
tributions to be drawn in trenches.
By last week, only
around one third of that money
had been made available. Needs
assessment require urgent donors
assistance of some US$2 million
to the government to supplement
its own resources, having already
committed itself to spending at
least US$2 million (approxi-
mately G$200 million).
When it comes to party
politicking, even at times of hor-
rendous natural disasters, Guyana
is not singular in our Caribbean
Community. Grenada, wrecked
by 'Hurricane Ivan' last year, and.
to a lesser extent, Jamaica, are re-
cent examples, as well as Trinidad
and Tobago which has been cop-
ing with severe floods and land-


managed, according to credible
reports, to focus on cooperation
than scoring political points.
While government
spokespersons have declined to
say it for the record, disappoint-
ment was evident over the ap-
parent shocking low level and
spasmodic responses from Car-
ibbean Community partners.

BORDER NEIGHBOURS

In contrast to, for ex-
.ample. Guyana's .three border
neighbours Venezuela, Brazil
and Suriname.
The 'Trinidad Ex-
press' editorialised last Wednes-
day that "Guyana's Caribbean
neighbours, led by Trinidad and
Tobago. have to move with
greater dispatch to rush aid to a
country which has been so badly
hit by the worst floods in 100
years, that many of its belea-
guered citizens have had to
themselves hit the road in order
to beg for food..."
The previous day. the
Barbados 'Daily Nation' had
noted in its editorial: "Caribbean
Governments, business sectors
and citizens in general familiar
with the vast size and major
population locations along its
coastal belt and riverain areas,

since 2003. The region of the
euro has fallen behind and de-
veloping countries are faring
even worse. Latin America and
the Caribbean is, in general, a
weak region, although some of
the larger countries have man-
aged to develop. Serious ob-
stacles still need to be overcome
in this region in order for a high
and sustained growth rate to be
achieved. The situation is dif-
ferent in South and East Asia.
Their growth has been quick
and consistent and this situa-
tion is expected to continue.
The foregoing brings
about a feeling of general opti-
mism that the acceleration expe-
rienced around the world in
2004 could lead to development
similar to that achieved at the
close of the last decade and that
the economy could enter into a
long period of sustained growth.
That recovery on the
part of the world economy is
due primarily to the improve-
ment experienced in the United
States and the ongoing rapid de-
velopment of East and South
Asia. China has been the main
player and its imports have
grown in such a manner that the
effect has spread to the other
economies of the Asia and Pa-
cific region. which have been
able to take advantage of the de-
mand of that country. China has
in turn increased its exports at
a growth rate exceeding double
digits and in some way that has
impacted on large economies like
the United States. while for
other countries, there is a dis-
placement of their exports and/


or a change in the trade ICrils T Ga
5i5hchin. The Greater


Japan, for its part, lfol-
lowing a decade of stagnation, fi-
nally experienced considerable
eco nomnic recovery from 2003
due to China's demand and the
improvement taking place in the
United Stales.
Curiously, trade pal-
terns have changed within Asia
and between Asia and the
IUnited States. Clina is the coun-
try that has most influenced
those patterns, especially since
its imports have grown at a sig-
nificant rate. India has also stood
out as a country playing an im-
portant role in the trends of the
world economy as a result of its
development.
The economies of
Central and Eastern [Europe haveC
also recorded their highest
growth rates within the last 1wo
years, due to a rise in their ex-
ports and an extremely strong
internal demand. One must not
underestimate the significance of
the expansion of the European
Union for these countries and
the relocation of the production
activities in these countries, a
situation that is facilitating the
integration process through a
new division of labour within
the continent and a strengthen-
ing of the union.
It can be said that
today there is a new geogra-
phy of world trade and all
countries, especially develop-
ing countries, must be aware
and wary of the trends in-
volved in such trade. Not all
countries have the capacity
and option to take advantage
of the new opportunities pre-
sented by this new world.
They must be careful to avoid
being affected by a displace-
ment of their exports and a
reduction in foreign direct in-
vestments. China and India
are receiving the highest lev-
els of investment from coun-

tries like the United States.
Japan and some European
countries.. Other countries
in Asia, to a lesser extent.
also receive significant in-
vestments. Likewise, invest-
ments from Western Europe
have been directed toward
Eastern Europe and this ob-
viously has a negative impact


on other developing coun-
tries.

POLICE on the East Coast Demerara have detained
a young man who is assisting them with investigations into
the murder and robbery committed on Davechand Appanna,
and the murder of nine-year-old Christine Sookra.
A group of men brutally murdered Appanna, 45, in his
Section 'B' Non Pariel home on August 17 last year. The bandits
also chopped Appanna's wife and robbed the family of money.
Ten days later, bandits shot and killed Sookra in her home
at Track 'A' Coldingen. Police said three armed men had tried to
gain entry to the Sookra home but were foiled by residents who
raised an alarm.
A terse police statement issued yesterday said investiga-
tions are continuing into the crimes.
Earlier this year. Police shot dead wanted man, Simeon
Hope in Buxton, and retrieved arms and ammunition found on him.

Please stop



littering!


(GINA) MINISTER of Pub-
lic Works and Hydraulics,
Mr. Anthony Xavier is appeal-
ing to residents to stop throw-
ing litter on the roads.
Trinidadian firm.
DIPCON. has volunteered its
human resources and equipment
in a massive clean up campaign
along the East Coast.
Xavier noted that his
Ministry had asked DIPCON to
assist in removing garbage and
dead animals along the East
Coast. Four trucks have been
engaged in this ongoing clean-up
exercise, he said.
"But I am appealing to
persons to desist from throwing
their food boxes and other ar-
ticles on the road, because it de-
feats the purpose of what we
are trying to do." stated Minis-
ter Xavier.
Persons who claim that
they do not have garbage bags
are advised to collect them from
the trucks, put their garbage in
the bags and place them on the
roadside. Minister Xavier said in
some communities it is difficult


for trucks to access several
streets.
"So I am encouraging
these persons to just place their
garbage in bags and place them
on the road so the trucks can
pick them up. People littering
was part of the reason for the
flood." pointed out Minister
Xavier.
He reiterated that
DIPCON is just doing volun-
tary work for the Works Min-
istry. The Ministry has also
provided disinfectants to resi-
dents to clean up their envi-
ronments.

even as we meet the challenges
posed by the January 2005
oods, we must not forget that
we are challenged by many
public health dangers. One
such danger is Hansen's dis-
ease known as leprosy.
Today, we are observ-

"World Leprosy Day' a day set

leprosy as well as those who dedi-

Leprosy is a chronic
mildly infectious disease that
mainly affects the skin, tissues and
peripheral nerves. Caused by bac-
teria, leprosy is characterized by
numb spots, nodules or bumps,
ulcers, loss of muscle tone on the
extremities and deformities. Lep-
rosy is said to be the seventh high-

lasting and incurable disease, sci-
entific advances have assured us
that leprosy is curable. That is
good news.
A diagnosis of leprosy
is most commonly based on
clinical signs and symptoms.
These are easy to elicit by any
trained health worker. Labora-
tory investigation can confirm the
diagnoses. Some of the signs to
for are;
1. The numb spot
2. Loss of hair on the spot
3. The spot being lighter
than the colour of your skin
4. Spots that do not itch
5. Bumps that seem to be
under the skin
6. Ear lobes swelling and
others.
Every year, thousands
of leprosy patients worldwide
suffer from disabilities and de-
formities, not because there is no
cure for their disease but because
they have no access to modern
drugs.
In Guyana, all patients,
however poor, wherever they
may live have free and equal ac-
cess to the treatment available.
Leprosy is no longer a disease
requiring life long treatment, and
the physical removal from the


communities to a leprosarium is
no longer necessary.
Multi Drug Therapy
(MDT) is available free of charge
right here in Guyana. It provides
a simple, yet highly effective
cure for this often feared disease
in just six to 24 months depend-
ing on the severity.
The World Health
Organisation elimination strat-
egy, based on the widespread
implementation of Multi-Drug
Therapy, has led to an 85 per
cent reduction of leprosy preva-
lence over 15 years, and a dra-
matic reduction in the number of
countries considered to be en-
demic. The global prevalence
rate of registered cases now
stands at about 1.4 per 10,000.
The prevalence rate
in Guyana in 2004 has been
recorded as 0.06 per 10,000.
In Guyana, we see an aver-
age annual detection of 30-
35 patients. In countries like
ours that have reduced the
elimination levels stipulated
by WHO, it is essential to
ensure that control activities
are sustained and the leprosy
situation is closely monitor
for a number of years.
As we reflect, however
momentarily, on this disease, let
us consider our attitude towards
it. This requires that those of us
who are healthy should seek in-
formation about the disease and
encourage suspected persons to
seek professional advice. Be as-
sured: treatment is available to
everyone who needs it.
Above all, whenever
we focus on this aliment, let
us resolve to be sufficiently
mature to approach any
among us with leprosy or any
other disease for that matter,
with love tolerance and under-
standing."

MINISTER of Foreign Trade
and International Coopera-
tion, Clement Rohee says
the new state-of-the-art
Skeldon Sugar Factory could
result in Guyana becoming
the third largest exporter of
sugar among African, Carib-
bean and Pacific (ACP coun-
tries behind South Africa
and Swaziland, as well as be-


He added that the de-
cision by the government and
the Guyana Sugar Corporation
(GUYSUCO) to modernise is
an indication of their shared
vision which illustrates that
sugar has a future.
Referring to the sig-
nificant contribution to the na-
tional economy and social de-
velopment of the sugar indus-
try, Rohee disclosed that it is
responsible for 50 per cent of


to expand production, diversify
into power generation and refin-
ing of sugar in order to increase
competitiveness and
sustainability.
The minister, who re-
turned from Europe from a re-
cent lobbying mission with re-
spect to the proposed new Eu-
ropean sugar regime, described it
as a "man-made disaster" which,
if implemented in its present
form, will result in Guyana los-

City drainage system needs



to be improved- Mayor


Zero tolerance


declared on


,squatting


THE Mayor of
Georgetown, Mr. Hamilton
Green, in his weekly report,
has conceded that the drainage
system in the city needs to be
improved and properly main-
tained in order to accommo-
date new conditions in the ur-
ban centre.
"Our maintenance
programme has been found
wanting, thanks to some bad


attitudes at several levels.
However, this effort will cost
money, which must be gar-
nered for some set of
sources," Green declared. ,
He said the City Council
has proposed several options,
including sharing of vehicle
taxes, a city lottery and a tax
on soft drink bottles and a
contaihbr ta "among bthets.e '
The Mayor stressed .also


that squatting must noui be met
iitih zero tolerance. as permia-
nent structures on the Cit)
Council's reserves are hinder-
ing ingress and egress of exca-
atlors, thus impeding the ef-
forts to desilt canals. He urged
citizens to "do the patriotic
thing" and report such illegal
construction immediately.
He is also-appealing to citi-
zens to take the necessary
precautions to prevent health
hazards as the aftermath of
the floods will have severe re-
percussions with respect to
health and the environment.
The City Council, in col-
laboration with the Pan
American Health
SOrganisation (PAHO). the
Ministry of Health, the Envi-


ronmental Protection Agency
SEPAt and other agencies, has
started a Public Health
Programme to deal with the
aftermath of the floods, the
Mayor reported.
He added that due to the
incessant rainfall, garbage
trucks became inoperable, and
consequently, several areas
-were not serviced. The MaI.or
has, however assured that they
are now back in operation and
will restart garbage collection
and disposal.
He is also advising drivers
of vehicles not to park under
trees or utility poles as the re-
cent flooding would have weak-
ened their roots. As such, there
is a high possibility of a tree
or pole Falling.


governmental organizations such
as OXFAM are being lobbied in
the effort to have the sugar regime
revised.
Chairman of the Board of
Directors of GUYSUC 0, Ronald
Ali has indicated that under the
agricultural expansion component
of the Skeldon project which be-
gan in 2000, work will now move
into "top gear", and already agri-
cultural equipment orders worth
US$3M have been placed with lo-
cal companies, while contracts to-
talling US$6M for land develop-
ment will be awarded in the next
two months
When completed, Ali
said the cane production area of
the factory will encompass
13,000 hectares, three times larger
than the present area, of which
about 25 per cent will be with pri-
vate farmers.
The project is being
funded through a concessional
loan agreement between the Exim

to the President, Robert
Persaud, on behalf of the gov-
ernment. thanked the
organizations and private indi-
viduals for their assistance to
the people of Guyana.
He assured the entou-
rage that Guyanese are not
starving, but are in need ,of
food and medical supplies to
take them through the unfor-
tunate ordeal.
Persaud told the
Travel Span President that the
supplies have been placed in
trusted hands, since the
Guyana government has placed
its confidence in the three reli-
gious organizations to ensure a
balanced distribution of the
supplies.
He informed the vis-
iting members of the press of
the efforts by Government to
control the situation, and up-


dated them on the distribution
processes.
"There is an organised
structure in the national relief
efforts... All Ministers are go-
ing out personally. overseeing
the various components of re-
lief efforts." he said. adding
that he had observed "the
spirit of people coming lo-
gether and sharing."
He said the three
organizations have been work-
ing closely, with the Govern-
ment. and there has been no
complaint about religious dis-
crimination in the distribution
of the supplies.
"We have all confi-
dence in the bodies..,. they
have been very universal in this
effort....' Persaud said.
Despite the plight.
Persaud noted that Guyanese
are still in high spirits. and are
ready to move on.
"...our people are
in a spirit to move forward
and recover from this ca-
lamity." Persaud assured
the visitors.

leading up to the voting gained ten of the twelve votes from
the panel to cop the-prestigious title from Ransford Goodluck
and Hugh Ross.
Gardner was the winner of the Mr Guyana, Mr Muscle
Beach and for the third consecutive year became the CAC
bantamweight champion, the first time this has been achieved
by a Guyanese and placed second at the Mr Musclemania in
California, USA.
O'Neil was initially nominated by seven of the twelve sports

the voting for the award O'Neil gained all twelve votes from
the selection panel.
For the photographer award Lawrence Fanfair of Stabroek
News got seven votes to the Guyana Chronicle's Winston
Oudkerk's four while Claude David got one vote. It was noted
that consideration of a special award should be considered since
Oudkerk has been covering sports extensively, since the early

"You ask for consistency and I don't think there hav

But Lloyd reflected: "He was not simply voicing an o

of that he implicated the South African team by sugg
they had influenced the umpires' decision."
Vaughan's fine has been challenged by the Profes

Williams battles to win



second Aussie title


SERENA Williams staged a
remarkable recovery to beat
Lindsay Davenport and win
her second Australian Open
title.
The 2003 champion claimed
her seventh Grand Slam title, and
her first since Wimbledon in
2003: 2-6, 6-3, 6-0.
Williams had looked close to
quitting with a rib injury when
she left the court for treatment
after five games.
She quickly dropped the
first set but from 3-3 in the sec-
ond found another gear as
Davenport's game collapsed, al-
lowing Williams to take the title.
Williams later explained her
injury problem, saying it was the
result of lunging for a ball early
in the first set.
"Lindsay had me on the
run out wide on my backhand
and my back went but eventu-
ally I was able to come back,
thank goodness," she said.
Davenport paid tribute to
Williams, saying: "She's had a
tough couple of years and she's
come back like a champion."
The 23-year-old former
world number one was in des-


would have given her a lot of
momentum, and a lot of con-
fidence."
Despite letting the break
points slip away Davenport
looked comfortable enough at 3-
3, but from 40-0 up she just
folded.
Williams won nine consecu-
tive points for the set and pow-
ered through the decider as a
lacklustre Davenport looked to
have run out of energy after a
rnuellino two weeks


LINDSAY DAVENPORT
operate trouble in the early stages
as the injury hampered her ser-
vice action.
Davenport took advantage
to race through the opening set
and held six break points in game
five of the second.
"I kept thinking to myself:
'I'm not losing this game," said
Williams afterwards.
'I don't care if my arm falls
off; I'm not losing this game'.
And I guess that's what hap-
pened.
"I didn't want to lose that
particular game because it


"I felt like I was playing well
and in control pretty much of
the match," said Davenport.
"Then I just had that hor-
rible lapse, I think serving up 40-
0, and made a few errors and
opened up the door for her and
she just kept going through it.
"At the end I think I was a
little bit fatigued but she took
advantage of it and kept going
- she's a great frontrunner
when she gets going." (BBC

Lloyd insisted: "Vaughan

"I could have banned him

"I took all that into

Vaughan wondered why

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


ANSWER


You cannot receive Sickness Benefit, as that will require you
paying contributions immediately prior to your illness, as well
as you being in employment the day prior to the day of your
illness. In addition, there is no employment and no loss of
income.


However, take note, if the operation was due to a continuous
condition existing before you resigned, and it was established
with NIS, you can qualify for Medical Care.

Do submit your document and let NIS determine.

Guyana Chron


rvriPTIu1


THE tragic flood which oc-
curred recently has severely
affected about 60 000 persons
in many respects. Disruption
in their act of daily oral care
will certainly take its tool on
those affected by this natural
disaster. This author believes
that basic knowledge of oral
disease and its development
may help especially in this
situation.
The effective control of
plaque (bacteria and food par-
ticles sticking to the surface of
the unclean teeth) therefore rep-
resents the basis of oral health.
It is not of primary importance
the method used to remove
plaque provided that the required
objective is achieved. So even if
your toothbrush was lost in the
flood water, you can still take
good care of your mouth. How-
ever, try. to get a toothbrush as
it's the ideal tool for oral care.
There are defined specifica-
'tions for toothbrush design and
brushing methods so as to
standardise professional recom-
mendations.
The toothbrush should be a
small one that is about six inches
in length, with soft bristles.
handle aligned on the same plane
as the head, and the brushing
profile' should be flat with the
bristles of all equal length. .
Two important factors must


be considered when brushing the
teeth. First you must strictly
follow a specific sequence. For
example, begin with the last mo-
lar of the upper jaw moving to
the last upper right molar then
down to the last right lower mo-
lar finally moving across to the
left last lowest molar.
The other important factor
is thoroughness. The entire sur-
face of each tooth should be
sanitised as well as the interden-
tal area. for one minute each day.
If. therefore, you have all your
permanent teeth, you should
spend a total of 32 minutes ev-
ery day in practicing oral care.
Remember you do not need
toothpaste, plain water will do.
There are eight scientific.
methods of tooth brushing; the
most widely accepted being the
modified stillman. This method
is designed for massage and
stimulation as well as for clean-
ing the neck area of the tooth.
The brush ends are placed
partly on the gum and partly on
the neck areas of the tooth and
are directed to the root of the
tooth. Moderate pressure is ap-
plied and the handle is given a
slight rotary motion while the
brush ends are maintained in po-
sition on the tooth surface, al-
ways in the direction in which
the tooth grows.
Repeat many times before


moving to the adjacent tooth and
not forgetting to include the pala-
tal (inner) faces. The biting sur-
faces are cleaned by vibrating
brush with light pressure while
maintaining the bristle tips on
the occlusal surftacec permitting
the tips to work their way into
the pits and fissures.
Excessive pressure curves
the bristles so that the tips
cannot get into the pits and
fissures. The most effective
time to brush is just before
retiring to bed at night. The
use of toothpaste or dentifrice
is not essential although the
regular brands which contain
nine ingredients including
abrasives, detergents, fluo-
ride, binders and humnectants,
serve to facilitate our objec-
tive.
Because plaque located on
the surfaces between two teeth
is inaccessible to usual brushing.
a means for proximal plaque re-
moval is necessary for complete
preventative care. The use of
dental floss or tape should al-
ways precede brushing. (Three
'strands of thread together will.
suffice in this crisis) Hold a 12-
inch' length of floss with thumb
and index, finger of each hand.
Grasp firmly wit half'inch of
floss between the finger tips. The
ends of the floss may be tucked
into the palm and leld by the

pait in oral care. In this regard,
food is classified into two cat-
egories, protective and cari-
ogenic. Cariogenic food contrib-
utes significantly to the forma-
tion of caries and especially in-
cludes those which are sugary
and sticky. Sugar is converted to
acid faster than starch while the
sticky property facilitates longer
contact with the enamel.
Protective foods are gener-
ally fibrous and contain vitamins,
minerals and fluoride. Greens
vegetables. ground provisions,
corn etc. are examples of protec-
tive foods. Although avoiding
cariogenic foods is ideal, extra
oral care is required after use.
Vigorous mouth rinse with wa-
ter when tooth brushing is prac-
tical should be practiced.
Dental plaque sometimes
becomes mineralised (hardened)
forming calculus or tartar. These
appear as brown or greenish
crusts on the enamel around the
neck areas or on the inside (lin-
gual) surface of the lower inci-
sors (front teeth). As the calcu-
lus develops it penetrates below

This condition is called pe-
riodontitis and is just as com-
mon as caries. When periodon-
titis becomes chronic, the signsN
include easy hemorrhage (patient
spits blood when brushing) re-
ceding gums (tooth appears to
be growing longer), and absorp-
tion of the alveolar bone with
deep pockets between the gum
and tooth (tooth becomes loose
or shaking).
Scaling, rot planning and
polishing constitute the treat-

degree. Because periodontal dis-
ease is usually painless the on-

ing effects are generally not
recognized until it is too late.
Utilising oral antiseptics are
effective only as a preventative
measure rather than the cure for
existing diseases.
Even in this dire situation

IN 1954, 11 persons were
committed to stand trial for
murder, but the Attorney
General entered a nolle
prosequi (withdrawal) against
six, three of whom had made
confession statements.
Five faced trial, including
appellants Stanuel and Joseph
Alexander, for the capital
offence.
At the trial, three of the
accused who had confessed to
the crime were freed by the jury.
Two of the freed accused
who had made confession
statements had also given the
police statements that were
favourable to the appellants.
Defence Counsel had
applied for permission to use
that favourable evidence against
his clients. The trial judge
refused on the grounds that that
evidence would be hearsay and
inadmissible.
The appellants had also
made statements which,


according to the judgment, if
true, amounted to a confession,
but the trial judge, in the absence
of the jury, ruled that the
statements were not free and
voluntary and were not tendered
in evidence.
The appellants were
convicted and sentenced to
death. They appealed.
The main ground of appeal
was that the favourable
statements of the freed accused,
required by the defence should
have been admitted.
But the Appellate Court
held that statements made in the
absence of an accused person are
not admissible either against or
for him. And, reference was
made to the case of R. v.
Thompson 1912 (7 C.A.R) 276.
The Court of Appeal was
constituted by Chief Justice
F.M. Boland. Justice H. J.
Hughes and Justice Kenneth
Stoby who later became
Chancellor of the Judiciary. :


Chief Justice Boland, who
delivered the judgment, noted
that it was a case in which two
appellants were found guilty by
the jury of the murder of an old
.man named Sookraj between the
night of April 20 and the morning
of April 21 1953. at a place at
Canal Polder on the West Bank
of Demerara.
According to the judge, the
evidence against the appellants
was in the nature of
circumstantial evidence. The


nothing, he went back to bed
where he was soon after
strangled and given a blow on
the head, which resulted in his
death. His wife was also injured.
She saw a number of men in the
room, but could not identify
them.
The case against the two
appellants comprised evidence
of witnesses who testified that
on the Saturday before the fatal
Monday night, they were seen
round and about that particular
district, which is on the left bank
of the Denmerara River.

make new friends..

HIS mission is simple and his method a bit out of the ordinary.
SThirty-four-year-old Daisuke Nakanishi of Osaka, Japan, is on his way to fulfill hiss.dream of
travelling around the wodd on a bicycle to make friends. i '
The friendly Japanese visited .the Chronicle last week to tell his story which began some seven
years ago on July 23, 1998.
*Afltei travelling to 20 countries during the summer and wintertime between 1996 and 1998,
Nakanistu, then an econounmics student at the University of Japan, decided to pursue his passion of
travelling around the woild. But he wanted to do it in a very unique way, so he chose the bicycle. .
Over the L1st seventfJears, he has travelled a distance of 79, 431 kilometres or 60,000 miles and
*has visited'a total ojF66(countries. '. I ', ;
..- He told .he Chroriicle that he visited Nlexico, United States,. Peru, ,Aiitralia, edw Zealand.as
w counties in Erope, Afica and Asia. Now in South Anienca, he has already visited countries
.incfudii v Bolivi,. Patag.ay, Brazil, and Argentina.

s..weeks while he was'in Kenya..
S His sleeping arrangements have varied from makeshift beds in Police stations, tents and in the
Homes of kind strangers'he'encounters in various countries.
Persons from every country he has visited have'given him a membnto, whether it is a flag, t-shirt
or some other antique. Nakanishi cherishes those souvenirs and keeps them safe in one of his many
bags hanging from the'bicycle.
He said that it is very good to travel by bicycle and he has enjoyed his ride. His Mountain Bike
was specially built for this journey. and is made of iron. He has changed the tires 54 times over the
past seven years, and the chains and seats have been changed on countless occasions, he said.
Does he miss his family? Well not really, since he communicates with them by Internet once a
month.
He intends to spend two weeks in Guyana, visiting some or the historical siles, and
basically enjoying the country before moving on to make more friends.

Police, in the course of their
investigations, detained and
charged other persons besides
the appellants, but certain
articles of the missing jewellery
were found in a room in

Stanuel Alexander lived.

that they were at the West Bank

took place. They did not give
evidence on oath, but elected to
'make statements from the'dock
and so did not subject
themselves to cross-examination.
The deceased man, who was
a money lender, had in his room

money and jewellery. The safe

buried in a hole under the floor
of the room a bag with jewellery.
Some of the articles were tied up
in a piece of cloth, part of a pair
of pajama trousers which the
police estab.lished'to be the
property of Stanuel Alexander.
The Justice of Appeal went
on to state that the conduct of


Stanuel Alexander immediately'
before the discovery of th
articles under the floor of th
room caused the police to drax
the inference that he had contrc
of the jewellery which wa
secreted there.
He had made an attempt t
get the police away from hi
room by telling them that som
articles of jewellery had bee.
brought to him there, but h
would have nothing to do wit
them.
This information, the Justic
of Appeal said, was given b
Stanuel .Alexander to get thl
police away' from the scene, by

throwing a mattress on the floon
This, said the judge, arouse,

I'm worried about my
sister. She is married with
teenage children. She and
her husband own a beautiful
home on a pond. Three years
ago she discovered an 80s
"hair band" and started to
see them once in awhile.
We would sometimes go
together on weekends to listen
to them, but after six months
she began to go every Saturday
night. I stopped going that often
because I, too. hae a family.
Her other friends also stopped
going, saying it was too much.

So my sister went alone and
found new friends. Her husband
was upset so she drags him


along. She also invites his
mother. I think this is to prove
she is not up to no good. In the
summer she brings her children
to see the band.
Her daughter told me she is
sick of seeing the band and
doesn't know why her mother
isn't sick of the same old songs.
My sister goes boating with
the lead singer, his wife, and
their son. She even enrolled one
of her sons in a basketball
league he coaches. She has
dropped all of her friends and
spends no time with her sisters.
Her husband told me he is sick
of being with them all the time,
but he is afraid of losing his
wife if he complains too much.

A few people have raised
their eyebrows at this. I don't
know every detail, but one that
alarmed me the most is the lead
singer told my sister he is sick
of his wife's weight. He asked
my sister how he can get his
wife to lose weight like my
sister. So, do you think this
whole relationship between my
sister, her husband, the lead
singer and his wife, is weird or
what?

JENNA

Jenna, imagine your
letter is a story idea you're
pitching to a Hollywood
producer. You want this
developed as the story of an
affair, but affairs thrive on
secrecy.. If your sister wanted
an affair, why involve her
whole family?
Perhaps your sister feels
her life was in a rut, and she sees
the lead singer and his wife as
mentors, mentors for a new,
more active, and diverse life.
Whatever her motivation, she
wants to live with more gusto.
You brought no evidence your
sister would cheat on her
husband. Where is the suspicion
coming from? Sibling rivalry?
Many people don't want to
listen to screeching guitars,
steel-lung singers, or Kiss and
Poison songs, but no
Hollywood producer would
buy this as the story of an
affair.

FOODF1
TODAY, we will address a condition that many of us spend
little time thinking about osteoporosis how it develops and
how we can prevent it from developing.
Let us begin by dispelling a myth: osteoporosis, a word meaning
'porous bones' or weak bones, is not an old woman's disease.
Although it tends to be more apparent in women over the age of
40, a decrease in bone density can begin as early as the late teens
and early twenties. This can continue into the thirties and then speed
up in the forties usually after the onset of menopause when hormone
levels fall. Yes, there is a direct link between the female hormones,
oestrogen and progesterone, and the strength of the bones. These
hormones tend to help the body retain calcium in the bones, thus
helping to keep them strong and intact.
Osteoporosis is a major health problem in the world. It afflicts
an estimated one-third of women aged 60 years to 70 years, and
two-thirds of women aged 80 or older. Approximately 200 million
womeA worldwide suffer from osteoporosis. Men are less prone to
this condition and only 20 per cent of those affected by osteoporosis
are men. While people of afro-Caribbean descent are less prone to
this condition, those of Caucasian and Asian descent are the most
susceptible.
-Jn the United States, five per cent of non-Hispanic black women
over the age of 50 years are estimated to have osteoporosis and an
estimated additional 35 per cent have low bone mass that puts them
at risk of developing osteoporosis. Four per cent of non-Hispanic
black men aged 50 years and'older are estimated to have osteoporosis
and 19 per cent are estimated to have low bone mass.


YOUR


Osteoporosis often leads to fractures of the hip, spine, or wrist
after only minor injury. These fractures lead to loss of function and
disability and osteoporosis is a major cause of disability and pain.
For example, one third of patients with hip fracture are
institutionalized within the year after fracture, and only one third
of such patients regain their pre-facture level of function. Substantial
disability also occurs after fracture of the vertebra, humerus, distal
forearm, ankle and foot. Such fractures lead to difficulty in bending,
lifting, reaching, walking and climbing and descending stairs.
Fractures also cause difficulty, in dressing, cooking, shopping and
performing heavy housework.
The impact of vertebral fractures on bending and walking is
significant and persists for years. Spinal deformity also causes
decreased pulmonary (or lung) function. In addition, vertebral
fractures have been shown to have adverse emotional effects on
women. Health-related quality of life is lower with each subsequent
fracture.
Osteoporosis has also been linked to increased risk of death.
Although it is widely recognized that 20 per, cent of patients die
within the year After hip fracture, it is under-appreciated that
mortality rate increases after vertebral fractures, even among healthy
older women. Mortality mates and hospitalisation increase in
proportion-qthd numberof vertebral deformities. Long-term studies
in men and women with vertebral deformities confirm the increased
risk of mortality, especially for cardiovascular, pulmonary and
cancer-related deaths. Despite this evidence* osteoporosis continues
to be under-evaluated and under-treated.
In Europe and the United States together, in the more than
650 000 patients per year with hip fractures, mortality is
increased by 1-20 per cent and more than one-third are
rendered functionally dependent; 19 per cent of patients enter
long-term care. Osteoporosis is a 'silent' disease. There are
usually no signs and symptoms during the early stages.
However, as it progresses, you may experience:

back pain
loss of height over time
fractures of the hips, spine, wrists, or other bones

The severity of osteoporosis calls for critical attention to our
bone mass. Generally, bone mass peaks at around the age of 30
years. Bones generally become weaker and less dense just after
menopause in women. There is no cure for osteoporosis, and little
can be done to reverse the damage done by this time. However.
after about five years, post-menopause there are a few lifestyle
changes such as taking calcium supplements and getting sufficient
exercise that can be done to stop further bone loss and fractures.
Unfortunately, once the damage has been done and the ones have
become significantly less dense, it is very difficult to get the bones
to take on new calcium to refill the areas which have been depleted.
In fact, the amount of calcium absorbed by the body after menopause
is limited and although taking calcium-rich foods such as milk and
milk products, or taking calcium supplements, does help, it does
not resolve the problem.
Bone is a living tissue made up of protein built in the shape of

BONES
scaffolding onto which hard minerals such as calcium are deposited
- sort of like bricks that are cemented onto the steel rods or columns
of a house. Both the protein and the minerals are continuously
undergoing a process of remodeling so the development of bone
structure needs to be examined from very early on in life.




























Calcium is best absorbed by the body when there is also vitamin
D present in the meal. This is why foods such as milk and herrings
are such good sources of calcium as they are also good sources of
vitamin D and therefore ensure that much of the calcium in the food
is taken up by the body. However, there are also competitors to
this process and it has been found that phosphoric acid. which is
found in many cola drinks, will block this process and trap the
calcium before it is absorbed by the body. This means that if you
have a calcium and vitamin D rich meal such as herrings or cheese,
and you wash them down with a cola drink, much of that valuable
calcium is bound to the phosphoric acid and passes out in your
urine.
The other problem with cola-based drinks is that it is an
acid-forming food, the phosphoric acid in it turning the blood
acidic. When this happens, the body takes calcium from its
stores, usually the bones, to neutralize the effect of the acid.
This means that the cola is actually removing calcium from
the stores and making the problem of osteopoosteoporsis worse. This
can be modified if the drink is either milk or water. (to be
continued)

TEMPERATURE CONTROL
The optimal storage tem-
perature for all cabbage types is
00C (32F). This maintains a
very low respiratory activity in
the cabbage and greatly inhibits
decay. Chinese cabbage is much
more perishable than heading
types and should be cooled
within several hours after har-
vest and held as close to the
'deal postharvest temperature of
)'C (320F) as possible. The
maximum market life of pak
-hoi under ideal conditions is 2
weeks. At ambient temperatures
the pak choi leaves will rapidly
wilt and become unmarketable
.after only 1 to 2 days. The need
for immediate cooling after har-
vest is not as necessary for head-
ing types of cabbage. However,
for maximum storage life, head-
ing types should be cooled
within a day after harvest. Mar-
ket life at 0C will be 4 to 6
weeks. Deterioration of cabbage
is accelerated under non-refrig-
erated temperatures and is asso-
ciated with discolouration of the
stem end, leaf wilting, loss of
fresh green colour, and
postharvest decay. Storing cab-
bage at ambient temperature will
require extensive trimming of
the leaves to maintain a market-
able head.

RELATIVE HUMIDITY
CONTROL
Cabbage is a leafy vegetable
susceptible to significant mois-
ture loss and wilting after har-
vest. The high surface area and
numerous openings in the leaf
surface stomatess) make an easy
route for tissue water loss. In
)rder to minimize the loss of
;rispness and wilting of the
leaves it is very important to
maintain a high relative humid-
ity (RH) in the storage atmo-
sphere. The optimal RH for
:abbage is 95%. Pak choi can be
stored at 0 C (32F) for sev-


eral weeks, as long as the rela-
tive humidity is greater than
85%.

PRINCIPAL
POSTHARVEST DISEASES
The most common
postharvest decays of cabbage
are bacterial soft rot, gray
mould, dark leaf spot,
Phytophthora rot, Rhizoctonia
rot, and watery soft rot. Stor-
age diseases can be controlled
by preventing wounds during
harvest and handling, trimming
off the infected outer leaves,
followed by storing the cabbage
as close to 0C (32F) as pos-
sible. In addition, the use of
clean seed and pre-harvest ap-
plication of fungicides will re-
duce inoculum and lower the in-
cidence of postharvest diseases.
Effective fungicides include
chlorothalonil (Daconil),
iprodione (Rovral), and copper
products.

BACTERIAL SOFT ROT
Bacterial soft rot is caused
by various bacterial species in-
cluding Erwinia, Pseudomonas,
and Xanthomonas. These bac-
teria are typically secondary
disease pathogens that enter the
tissue at the time of wounding
or follow primary fungal inva-
sions. Infected tissue quickly
decays and turns into a soft,
slimy, foul-smelling mess at am-
bient temperatures. Care should
be taken to avoid injury during
harvest and handling. Cabbage
should also be held at a cool
temperature to minimize bacte-
rial soft rot growth. Develop-
ment of bacterial soft rot at the
cut stem end can be prevented.
by spraying with a 15% solu-
tion of alum (aluminum potas-
sium sulfate) in water After
treatment, the stem end should
be allowed to dry for 20 to 30
minutes before packing. Appli-
cation of lime powder to the


stem end will also help mini
mize the establishment of bac
trial soft rot.

GRAY MOULD
Gray mould, caused by th
fungus Botrytis cinerea, is mos
commonly found on stored cab
bage grown under wet condi
tions. The fungus persists in tht
soil, on crop debris, and in un
sanitary storage facilities
Symptoms begin as brown wa
ter-soaked areas on the oute
leaf surface. Under humid stor
age conditions a whitish moulc
develops, which eventually)
darkens into a brownish-gra)
mass. Once established on th
leaf surface, the fungus can at
tack and decay healthy tissue
and produce a nesting moult
growth inside a packed con
trainer. The optimal temperature(
for growth of gray mould i
20C (680F). Decay can be mini
mized, although not complete)
controlled, by rapid cooling o
the cabbage after harvest ant
storage at 0C (32F).

DARK LEAF SPOT
This disease is caused b3
the fungus Alternaria brassicae
Infection usually begins prior t(
harvest although disease symp
toms may not be apparent. I:
the initial stages of this disease
small dark spots appear on th
outer leaves. The spots rapidly
enlarge at ambient temperature
and within the infected spot
are large masses of dark spores
Under wet conditions, infection
may occur by direct penetratio
of intact leaf tissue via the sto

matal pores. Even after trim-
ming, cabbage may still undergo
serious rotting in storage. Decay
is slowed by cold temperature
storage.

PHYTOPHTHORA ROT
Phytophthora rot is caused
by the soil-borne fungi
Phytophthora porri, which is
typically found in poorly
drained areas of the field. This
disease is most severe on cab-
bage produce... .;ng the rainy
season. Symptoms typically
begin as a dark brown firm rot
of the stem end, gradually pro-
gressing into the head. Cavities
tend to form in the stalk tissue
and sparse white mould strands
may be observed. The decayed
tissue produces a distinctive
sour odour. Gray water-soaked
blotches may also appear on the
outer leaves. The disease can be
spread by contaminated cutting
knives. Fungicides are largely
ineffective against this pathogen.
Sanitary cultural practices, well-


admitted when cross-examining
the police witnesses who took
those statements. The learned
trial judge, after hearing the
submissions of counsel, ruled
that the statements were
inadmissible.
The Justice of Appeal
explained, "In this Court,
Counsel for the appellants
argued that those statements
were wrongly rejected by the
trial judge and that the
appellants were entitled to have
the statements put in at the
trial.
"We have consulted the
authorities on this point
which were cited at the trial,
especially the case of R. v.
Thompson, decided in 1912 (7
C.A.R.) p. 276) and we find
that the learned trial judge
acted correctly in refusing
the application by Counsel to
have the statements admitted.
It is now well established that
statements made in the
absence of an accused person
are not admissible either
against or for him".
"So far as the appellant
Joseph Alexander is concerned,
the evidence against him was
not as strong as the evidence
against Slanuel. But there was
evidence of a substantial
character from which the jury
were entitled to draw the
inference that lie was on the
scene and if he did not actually
and physically strangle the old
ina and caused to be inflicted
on him the injuries which
rCesulted in hlis death, hle was

n who indicated that the stain
n was of human blood.
i- There was evidence from
which the jury could have come
to the conclusion that the coat
in the room was used by
Staauel Alexander to secret the
money.
The Justice of Appeal
added: "I do not think that
there is any need to go into the
whole of the evidence. This was
a long trial and the jury arrived
at their conclusion on all the
facts which came out in the
evidence.
"The appellant Stanuel had
the advantage of Counsel, who
made submissions against the
admissibility of some of the
evidence tendered at the trial.
These submissions were upheld
by the learned trial judge. The
jury came to their conclusion on
the facts of the case and we see
no reason to disturb their
findings," the Justice of Appeal
had said.
He added that there were a
few points raised at the trial by
Counsel for the appellants. One
point was that jointly with the
accused, sonime other persons
1 had been committed for trial by
the Magistrate at the
preliminary inquiry, but the
Attorney General had entered a
nolle prosequi in their favour.
It was admitted by the
police witnesses that in the
cours;c of the inxesti 'atiotns
Hose" sale persons had gt\en
slate Ientts to tlie Police.

drained soils, clean cutting
knives, and refrigeration after
harvest all minimize the devel-
opment of Phytophthora rot.

RHIZOCTONIA ROT
Rhizoctonia rot is caused
by another common soil-borne
fungus, Rhizoctonia solani. This
disease is favoured under
wet conditions, especially when
there is contact between the soil
and the base of the cabbage
head. Symptoms begin as
sunken black lesions on the
lower leaf midribs in contact
with the soil. Circular spots
later appear on the lower leaves.
In addition, small irregularly
shaped lesions may develop on
the tops of the heads, gradually
coalescing and darkening. Even-
tually head rot may follow. As
decay progresses, a dark mould
spreads over the surface.
Rhizoctonia rot can be con-
trolled after harvest by storing
the cabbage at cool tempera-
tures, since the fungus grows


very slow below 10C (50F).

WATERY SOFT ROT
Watery soft rot, caused by
the fungus Sclerotinia
sclerotiorum, is common on
cabbages produced from
poorly drained soils or during
the rainy season. Symptoms
appear as water-soaked spots
on the outer leaves. The spots
eventually coalesce into a
leaky soft tissue mass. Af-
fected tissue often turns grey,
giving rise to a fluffy white
mould which eventually is
dotted with black fungal bod-
ies. In contrast to bacterial
soft rot, there is no disagree-
able odour associated with
watery soft rot. Sanitary pro-
duction practices will reduce
the build-up of the fungus in
the soil. Weeds should be
controlled because they
harbour the fungi and their
foliage creates a moist envi-
ronment favouring disease
development.


"There was evidence that
Alexander was round about the
Canal Polder on the Monday.
He had some conversation with
a witness who testified before
the jury, from which it could be
said that he and Stanuel were
making plans to break into the
deceased man's premises. The
jury heard that evidence.
"The jury also had evidence
that a torchlight was missing
from the old man's premises.
That torchlight was traced to
the possession of Ale\ander.
He had passed it on' to
somebody in the market.
Assistant Supt. of Police Austin
testified that Alexander had
admitted that he was the person
who sold the torchlight, which
was identified by the widow of
the deceased man as the one
which her husband had in the
house. The torchlight had certain
features by which it was
identified to be the property of
Sookraj.
"There were other bits of
circumstantial evidence forging
links in the chain tending to
connect Alexander with the
crime. The jury heard all the
facts. The main point which
they had to consider was
whether or not Alexander
committed any act which led to
the death of the old man. They
canie lo a conclusion against him
and we see no reason to disturb
their findings.
"The appeals are therefore
dismissed. The convictions and
sentences are affirmed," the
jud-gement of the Appellate
Court said.

CARIBFAN Cargo and Packaging Services on Tuesday received the first shipment of food
items from New York-based Guyanese who were encouraged to assist their families in Guyana
who were affected by the recent floods.
The Shipping Agency and North American Airlines, in a collaborative effort, has made it
possible for Guyanese to receive relief from their overseas-based families, by reducing air
freight from its original price of US$65 per 25-pound package to US$10.
Speaking with Chronicle, General Manager of the Agency. Ms. Melissa Lewis, said that the Company's
New York-based President Mr. Bobby Vieira, who also broadcasts in the United States, coordinated the
entire scheme by contacting the airlines for assistance in shipping the goods.
She said that responses were overwhelming as many persons sent parcels/boxes for their
relatives, particularly those based on the East Coast of Demerara. The cargo service received
more than 300 parcels and another 300 were scheduled to arrive Thursday. The company's
humanitarian effort ended yesterday.
Lewis said many persons flocked to the agency's High and Leopold Streets offices to uplift
their parcel(s).
In addition, British West Indies Airways (BWIA) had flown in supplies from a London
group free of charge earlier this week.
The New York-based Guyanese residents were not the only ones to render assistance to
Guyana, as only Sunday last, the Guyanese-American Cultural Association of Central Florida
held a meeting where monetary contributions was collected from Guyanese residing in the
State of Florida
The association had on a previous occasion made a contribution of US$1,000 to Guyana,
and expects to gather more funds to be sent to the 'Guyana Flood Relief Fund' soon.
As Guyana gradually returns to some level of normalcy, assistance continues to pour in
from all quarters. (Delana Isles)

Sunday Chronicle January 30, 2005


(From page 5A)
uncontrolled water, water
everywhere, no
discrimination... You're
walking in it, you're living in
it... that's a real flood,"
Barrow declared.
"Its ability to recede is
incomparable with the rate at
which it is rising, and it is also
supplemented further by
incessant rains." he further
stated.
Water damage, on the other
hand, occurs when there is
bright sunshine and everywhere
is dry, and water falls ont your
equipment or furniture or other
property.
He said clients cai niake
their claims through Insurance
Brokers, which is responsible
for selecting and buying
insurance for clients, bringing
them into a contractual
relationship with an insurance
company.
"We. as brokers, have
placed all kinds of insurance for
many people... from the small
man. to the big conglomerate."
he said. adding that over the
years flood insurance has not
been a "common place peril"
that people thought about
buying.
Barrow described flood
Insurance as an extension within
a Fire policy. which can either
be offered or declined by an
insurance company.
As part of their
investigation into a client's
possible qualification for the
offer. he said insurance
companies would have to work
closely with the national
Meteorological department to


find out whether or not a flood
by natural causes is likely to
occur soon.
"Insurance companies lose
and would not want to insure in
the presence of a known risk,"
he pointed out.

RESTRUCTURE
BUILDINGS

In order to avoid the
comeback of such sufferings, his
advice to property owners in
flood hit areas is to restructure
their buildings.
"1 don't (envision) people
building houses on very low
land anymore... They should
elevate the building ,or the
height of the hind on which
they build," lie suggested, anti
recommended that those in
authority seriously address
this preventative course of
action.
Barrow also recommended
that directing the course of large
volumes of water should be
professionally and carefully
done, and the accumulation of
the geographical fxow of x\ater
from high lands into low lands
be carefully supervised.
"Professional and serious
attention should be given to the
topology of the lands to see
how the water flows. There is
a conservancy basin that holds
all the water to save the lower
lands. We need to widen the
conservancy to make it a little
bigger so it can hold more
waler." Barrow added.
He said the current
experience las given G(uyalnese
an opportunity to correct
themselves where they possibly


can, in order to ensure that
something similar does not
recur.
He said if adjustments are
not made, the value of houses
in flood-hit areas will slope
downward.
"People will certainly be
looking at change. Many of
them spend their last dollar
building beautiful houses...
they will really not have the
same resale value," lie
pointed out. '
"They have to amend (olr)
they will certainly have to live
in alternative areas."
Meanwhile, another
Insurance Broker Bishwva
Pnlnday said in the aftermath of
the flood, many Giyanese have
experienced, and are still
experiencing, a catastrophe, and
will definitely be looking at
taking measures to secure their
assets through insurance, in the
general sense.
Panday. who manages P&P
Insurance Brokers and
Consultants, said most of lthe
flood victims without insurance.
have suffered greatly and \\will
have to start all over to make
their house a home again. w while
those \\ho have had insutirance


for their properties will have
their assets replaced through
claims.
"The flood is now opening
the eyes of many as to what it
is to face a catastrophe," Panday
said.
He however advises that
one should not only insure
against flooding, just because of'
the effects of the current flood,
but think about insurance in
general, since no one canll
acciralely predict what will
happen next.
"The way global warming
is going, you don't know what
can happen at anytime... You
don't know what exposures
you have. People have to be
more insurance conscious,"
he pointed out in an interview
with this newspaper.
"When the flood waters
recede and 'you gel back to
normal, you haxe the exposure
of electrical fire... all kinds of
disasters." lie noted.
Pandav said imanx'
Guy( anese arrix e at the
conclusion that insurance is
beyond the reach ol their
pockets, bul according to hiim.
some can be as low as $200 per
week.

lie said even though
insurance is affordable and
iany companies offer such
services here, Guyana is
definitely an under-insured
place.
Up to Thursday, his
company had received some 50
claims from clients who have
been affected by the flood.
More claims are expected once
the water recedes.
"'The client formulates his
claim with the assistance of his
broker and that claim is
presented to the insurance
company. Then there is a
process of negotiation between
the broker and the insurance
company." he said of the
process.
However, a person who has
lost an item can get either the
depreciated value of that item,
or the cost of a new item of
similar make. depending on the
sumt insured and conditions of
the policy.
iHe said those interested in
insuinng can either go directly to
an insurance company, an
insurance agent or an insurance
broker.
As for flood-hit areas.
PalnItla) said: "People have to be


. i i


cognisant of the vulnerability of
living in those areas, and if they
are building new structures,
they will have to take
precaution and seek technical
advice."
He said Guyanese should
consider a statement by
Winston Churchill, which
partially reads, "If I had my
way, I would write the word
'Insure' ... on the blotting
paper of' every public man.
For I am convinced, that for
sacrifices that are
inconceivably small, families
can be protected."
"In the aftermath of severe
rainstorm and abnormal tidal
surge, many Guyanese need a
chance to stand on dry grounds,
breathe in a fresh atmosphere
and live comfortably in their
own homes."
According to an employee
of the Demerara Mutual Fire
and Life, the company will
have to carry out an
investigation to find out
if it will make much
sense for them to offer
'flood' as an independent
policy, other than just an
extended peril within the
fire policy.
