$2.8B package the
crafted to help communities

Mr. Jagdeo said his government

WHATEVER the decision of Brian Lara or the final
shape of the West Indies cricket team for the
First Test against South Africa in Georgetown
at month end, the Board has clearly further tarnished its
reputation by its inept handling of the whole episode
surrounding the seven players holding personal
contracts with Cable and Wireless.
After bowing to pressures from current sponsor
Digicel the Irish telecommunications giant competing
with Britain's Cable and Wireless for markets in the
Caribbean to exclude Lara, Ramnaresh Sarwan and
five others with personal C&W contracts, the WICB was
to further complicate matters.
It has made a bad situation worse by resorting to an
old tactic, rooted in our colonial history, of divide and rule.
How else to view the very perplexing decision to give
approval on Friday for Lara to make himself available
for selection yesterday, but to keep the door shut against
the six other players with C&W contracts? Lara, in turn,
requested 24 hours to give his momentous decision that
may be known by the time you read this.
When did the Board really wake up to the fact that it
was okay to allow Lara to make himself available for
selection but not the others? It cannot be, as its spin
doctors were seeking to have us believe as of Friday,
that the difference resided in variations between Lara's
C&W contract and those of the six other players.
Particularly, if we are to accept, as reported yesterday,
that Lara had entered into his contract "with the
constructive knowledge and blessing" of the WICB.
"Constructive knowledge" of the WICB? Assuming the
truth of this claim, which has come at the eleventh hour
in a controversy that has been in the public domain for
weeks, why was Lara excluded from possible selection
in the first place, along with the six other players?
There is clearly much more in the WICB mortar than
the "pestle" to which Digicel is objecting and using to
torment its rival, C&W, much to the agony of West Indian
people over the future of our cricket, the sport so deeply
embedded in our social history.
Writing this viewpoint before knowing whether or not
Lara had decided to make himself available for selection,
it is, nevertheless, safe to assume that it would have
been very agonising for him to break ranks with the six
other players and, at the same time, hope to be
appointed captain for the coming series against South
There is a related problem, and it concerns current
vice-captain, Shivnarine Chanderpaul. Would he be
prepared to take on the burden of captaincy of an
evidently weaker team without Lara and some of the
other six players, should the internationally renowned
star batsman turn down the offer to make himself
available for selection?
It is a very difficult moment for both Lara and
Chanderpaul. It is a sad day for West Indies cricket.
Digicel and C&W have succeeded, in their battle for
markets, to create unprecedented agony for cricket lovers
across our region. And our governments seem
incapable to come forward with an enlightened and
courageous collective response.
The only new and significant initiative in this whole
sordid episode involving the WICB, Digicel, .C&W and
the West Indies Players Association, came just a few
days ago from C L Financial, the Port-of-Spain-based
Caribbean conglomerate, to buy out Digicel's US$20
million sponsorship deal with WICB, as well as the
disputed seven personal contracts with C&W.
Of course, the two foreign telecommunications giants
have no interest in handing over business to indigenous,
Caribbean sponsorship. This is the dark time for West

CHALLENGES AND RESPONSES
Policing, judiciary and floods burden
THERE has been some
encouraging news this past
week in relation to the fight
against criminality and
efforts to improve the
performance of the judiciary
to ensure efficient delivery of
But there was also some
very bad news, not altogether
unexpected, from an assessment
by a United Nations team of
experts of the horrendous cost
to Guyana of the worst floods
in living memory.
First, the good news on
the police and judicial fronts,
as well as a related challenge
from the Customs Anti-
Narcotics Unit (CANU) to
serious allegations in a report
earlier this month by the
United States Bureau for
International Narcotics and
Law Enforcement Affairs.
POLICING: Coming out
of the recently concluded
annual conference of the
Guyana Police Force,
Commissioner Winston Felix
has been projecting a mood
of optimism in the Force's
commitment and capacity to
more effectively combat
serious crimes as well as
lawlessness in traffic
Although little has so far
been made public, the
Commissioner has let it be
known that a special task force
of his experienced colleagues
was .being established to
formulate a new "strategic plan"
We have become
accustomed, across the
Caribbean Community, to
hearing from governments and
institutions about "strategic"
It ,i .to b.e. hped that what
unfolds from the GPF's new
"strategic plan" does reflect, the
sooner the better, some new,
creative initiatives to combat
violent crimes, narco-trafficking,
gun-running, money laundering
and the comparatively new
phenomenon of kidnapping a
crime that is causing immense
horrors across nearby Trinidad
Commissioner Felix has
raised the bar in preparation
for the launch of the Force's
new thrust against the
criminals, especially against
the narco-trafficking and gun-
running networks and armed
warring gangs. It is to be
assumed that he would seek
to learn what approaches to
adopt, or avoid, that have
resulted from earlier meetings
of the Association of
Caribbean Commissioners of
Police (ACCP). Or, from
CARICOM's Task Force on
Crime and Security.
An opportunity for critical
assessments of regional
approaches in battling serious
crimes, and also the deficiencies
in networking cooperation with
especially from the U.S.A., to
combat drug trafficking and
corruption, should be

general fieting'of. the ACCP

Justice Bernard, who has

conference of international
aid donors came up with
pledges amounting to some
US$1 billion for that poorest

been made available.
Although not faced with
the governance, capacity-
building and human
resources problems of Haiti,
currently in the grip of a
political crisis, Guyana must

the consequences of the

What's happening with the FTAA negotiations?
By Odeen Ishmael
EVER since the FTAA
talks reached a
deadlock early last
year, the Brazilian and
American Co-Chairs of the
Trade Negotiation Committee
(TNC) tried unsuccessfully on
three occasions to restart the
process. But the stalemate has
continued over conflicting
positions as to how the FTAA
should be shaped, all of which
have resulted in a lack of
consensus building on
Some countries, notably
Brazil and the Caricom countries.

agricultural subsidies and dispute

particularly the U.S.A., prefer.
At the same time. there are major
differences between Brazil and
the United States regarded as
the largest economies on
crucial FTAA issues. For
example. Brazil wants to exclude
from the FTAA talks issues on
government procurement, and
intellectual property. Brazil has
traditionally resisted going
beyond WTO commitments in
these areas. On the other hand.
the United States desires to
discuss investment. services.
government procurement. and
intellectual property within the
FTAA, while insisting that
domestic agricultural subsidies
and anti-dumping should be
dealt with by the WTO.
In a major initiative, the Co-
Chairs of the TNC, Ambassador
Adhemar Bahadian of Brazil and
Acting U.S. Trade
Representative Peter Allgeier,
held consultations on 22-23
February in Washington, D.C. on
how to advance the negotiations.
According to a brief statement
they issued, the meeting centred
on discussions among FTAA
countries following the failed
TNC meeting in Puebla, Mexico,
in February 2004. They added
that their meeting made progress
and that before they meet again
on 29-30 March they would
consult infonnally with the other
There is now guarded
optimism that they will make a
breakthrough at the upcoming
month-end meeting, leading to
the reconvening of the FTAA
negotiations at least by May. But
as time stretches on, it remains
doubtful that the negotiators will
be able to reach final agreement
to formally establish the free
trade area before the end of 2005.
In the meantime. President
Silva's chief of staff, Jose
Dirceu, met with U.S. Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice in
Washington on 3 March in a
further effort to iron out the
controversial issues surrounding
the stalled FTAA negotiations.
Details about what was
discussed by the Co-Chairs are
seeping out slowly. It is
understood that they made
significant progress on market
access concerns in the
contentious area of
agriculture. At previous TNC
meetings, Brazil, a major
agricultural producer and
exporter, consistently argued for
the elimination of export
subsidies and made proposals for
addressing domestic price
supports. Rumours persist in
diplomatic circles that the two
sides agreed on different speeds
of integration which would allow
them to exclude contentious
issues such as intellectual
property rights and U.S.
agricultural issues from a final
Despite these rumours, there
is indication that the Co-Chairs
were not very successful
in reaching an agreement on the
problematic issue of intellectual
property. This was hinted by
Ambassador Bahadian who told
the media on 24 February that
intellectual property continued
to be a most difficult issue in the
WILL CUBA INFLUENCE
Meanwhile, a new dimension
has developed in the FTAA
scenario. An Associated Press
report on 2 March revealed that
during the recent swearing in of
the new Uruguayan President
Tabare Vasquez, Cuba asked to
become an associate member of
Mercosur. For Cuba to be
accepted, the full members -
Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and
Paraguay have to agree by
consensus. Other associate
members are Bolivia, Chile, Peru,
Ecuador, Colombia and
Venezuela. Both Guyana and
Suriname are also considering
seeking associate membership as
If Cuba is accepted as an
associate member of
Mercosur, it can present
complications for the U.S. in
the FTAA talks. The U.S. and
the other 33 members of the
proposed FTAA have never
considered Cuba as part of the
process initiated and
propelled by the Summit of
the Americas. But by becoming
an associate member of
Mercosur, Cuba, at least
indirectly, may have some
influence in how the FTAA is
finally formulated. And with
Venezuela's interest in
upgrading its current own
associate membership of
Mercosur to full membership,
Cuba, as its close political ally,
can be drawn even closer into
In recent years, the leftist
governments in Brazil and
Venezuela have expanded their
trade and political ties \ith
Cuba. Cuban trade itself with the
Mercosur group remains small,
but it has doubled ever since
President Lula da Silva came to
power in Brazil. And Argentina's
left-leaning President Nestor
Kirchner, like Silva, also
opposes the U.S. embargo on
Cuba and supports increased
trade with Cuba.
Actually, over the years
hemispheric political leaders
have privately talked about
"advantages" of including Cuba
in the FTAA. Certainly, with
Cuba being a trade partner of
every country in the Americas -
including some states of the
U.S.A. many of them wonder
why Cuba, with a large viable
market of 10 million people,
should be excluded from the
trade pact. Trade relations should
not be hampered by ideology and
political systems, and if
democracy is a qualification,
many now question why Haiti

the trend is for positions to be
articulated by the various
economic groupings formed by
geo-economic blocs. Caricom
speaks with a single voice
through its Regional Negotiating
Machinery, and more recently
the Central American group has
been moving in that direction.
This trend is also being picked
up by the ALADE and
Mercosur groups. even though
some of the countries belonging
to those groups continue to
express their individual positions
on particular issues.
Significantly, late last year
Mercosur and ALADE
formalised a cooperation
agreement, so it is expected that
they may put forward some
common positions in FTAA
However, it must be borne
in mind that Venezuela has
expressed strong reservations on
the present formulation of the.

includes Cuba but excludes the
United States. So far, only Cuba,
at the bilateral level, has
expressed support for this

with a "bargaining chip" in

IAC symposium hears
Freedom of expression
not 'an absolute'
THE fences by which freedom
of expression is circumscribed
were highlighted during a
symposium Friday evening at
the Hotel Tower in the city.
The symposium, hosted by
the Indian Arrival Committee,
featured a presentation by
Attorney-at-law Anil Nandalall,
during which he spoke of the
restrictions which make freedom
of expression not an absolute.
Mr. Nandalall posited
that the freedom of
expression, which the law
guarantees, is not a licence to
publish under the guise of
scholarship that which is not
only unfounded and without
empirical basis, but that
which is inflammatory, racist
and perhaps seditious.
And the writer guilty of
this cannot use justification
and the truth as defences. Mr.
Nandalall referred to the 1909
English case of R-v Alfred,
with Justice Coleridge
speaking of sedition:
"But the man who is accused
may not plead the truth of the
statements he makes as a defence
against the charge nor may he
plead the innocence of his
motive; that is not a defence to
the charge. The test is not either
the truth of the language or the
innocence of the motive with
which he published it, but the
test is this: was the language used
calculated, or was it not, to
promote public disorder or
physical force or violence in a
matter of State?"
In conclusion, Mr.
Nandalall said, if the
impugned publication (Dr.
Kean Gibson's 'The Cycle of
Racial Oppression in
Guyana') was reviewed from
this perspective and against
this background, the
recommendations by the
Ethnic Relations Commission
might have been different.
The IAC symposium dealt
with its complaint to the Ethnic
Relations Commission about Dr.
Gibson's publication which it
found to be inflammatory and
totally unfounded in fact. The
IAC's Evan Persaud, in remarks
Friday evening, listed the
objectionable sections of the
publication which accused
Guyana's "Hindu Government"
of a systematic plan to oppress
Afro-Guyanese and likened the
administration to Nazi fascism,
bent on decimating the Afro-

described the book as lacking
in scholarship, with no
grounds for its thesis. The

institutions, or should it be

Gaskin was the other presenter
at the symposium, and though
he has no problem with the
ERC's recommendations, he
feels the findings should have
been signed by the
Commissioners. He feels, too,
that it's time the Commission is
fully constituted, as
Commissioners are yet to be
appointed for some
Mr. Gaskin also disagrees
with author Gibson's contention
that the Guyana Government is
a Hindu Government.
He said successive
governments in Guyana have
courted religious constituencies,
with former PNC Governments
splitting Hindu and Muslim
organizations in their quest for
votes and power.
While many conflicts
around the world are waged
under the guise of religious
or ethnic considerations, Mr.
Gaskin posited, they are all
really concerned with power.

with private insurers.
In conjunction with the
development of these financial
products has been the emergence
of an active weather market then

especially after oil prices were
deregulated. The weather market
Index has now spread to
become a worldwide
phenomenon. This new product
offers affordable insurance for
catastrophic risk from droughts
and floods. Skess, Larson and

"properly designed weather-
based index contracts could be
used in a variety of ways within

a form of direct insurance for

researches that now identify
Weather Index as a more
superior alternative to the
traditional crop insurance. This
is because weather events are
more measurable and verifiable
and not easily subjected to
manipulation possibilities as
with crop insurance. In crop
insurance, payments are linked
to actual farm losses. However,
with weather index insurance, it
is easier to administer since
there is no farm inspection or
individual loss assessment
needed that can be expensive.
Further, weather market index
has a broader scope in the
market since it could be sold to
banks, farm cooperatives, micro
finance organizations as well as
directly to farmers. Banks and
micro financial organizations
such as IPED in Guyana could
purchase such insurance to
protect their portfolios against
defaults caused by severe
weather patterns and natural
disasters. Financial institutions
that cover their risks with this
type of insurance would be
better able to expand and
provide credit on more

President Bharrat Jagdeo on
Friday announced an initial
$2.8B short-term package to
help flood-hit communities
and sectors recover over the
next three months. We publish
below the President's an-
nouncement of the package.
ON JANUARY 18,
2005, I declared
Regions 3, 4 and
5 as "national di-
saster areas." Those Coastal Re-
gions were under water for an
extended period from the unprec-
edented levels of rainfall that oc-
curred during the months of De-
cember 2004 and January 2005.
This resulted in severe hardships
for many of our citizens. The
economic loss was massive -

today unveiling its Recovery and
Rehabilitation Package for those
affected communities and sec-
tors. The focus of this package
is on short-term interventions
Activities would be imple-
mented within the coming three
months of recovery. In general,
the objectives of the recovery in-
terventions include the follow-
1. to clean-up and re-
store the physical environment
2. to provide support
for households in restoration ac-

zens and businesses are located
in it. As such, I have decided that
I cannot allow the unsatisfactory
situation at the City Council to
continue. I have instructed Min-
ister Collymore to consult with
the citizens of the City on their
views regarding the installation
of an Interim Management Com-
mittee made up of technical and
prominent citizens. This, if ac-
cepted by the citizenry, could
stop the political wrangling and
allow for better services to the
Citizens of Georgetown.
I had also established a Task
Force to review the city drain-
age system. The short-term ob-
jectives outlined in the TOR in-
clude the following:
1. an analysis of the
comprehensive drainage needs of
the Capital city
2. identify the most ur-
gent steps to be taken to imme-
diately improve drainage and
implement mitigation measures.
The Task Force has identi-
fied several immediate projects.
I am putting aside $100M to ad-
dress these. I hope to involve
citizens in this exercise.
In the meanwhile, short-term
interventions started with the
desiltin of major canals and the

street drains within the wards of
The expenditure to be in-
curred for the short-term drain-

The ECLAC assessments
suggested that about 70,000
households were affected in Re-
gions 3, 4, and 5 and parts of
Georgetown. Each affected
household will receive an assis-
tance grant of $10,000. I know

that this sum at the individual
level may seem small but it will
cost $700M (US$3.5M).
Additionally, I met with fi-
nancial institutions, hire pur-
chase providers and other credit
providing bodies. They have all
agreed to provide on a case by
case basis some form of assis-
tance to the affected households.
Those, who require this assis-
tance are asked to urgently con-
tact the relevant institution.

will require detailed assessments

want to emphasise that neither
my Government nor I has
authorised anyone or any
organisation to do any assess-
ments for the purpose of assis-
tance in the above-mentioned
sectors. Over the next week
authorised officers working,

duct this assessment. This assis-
tance will be in cash and kind. I
expect this exercise to be com-
pleted soon so as to allow the
assistance to flow to beneficia-
ries early in the new month.
The above are all short-
term measures. It w i require
substantial sums of money to
address the comprehensive
restoration of drainage and
irrigation, roads, schools and

estimated that it would
require in excess of $6 billion
(US$30M) to address these
needs. My Government is

It was at their modest but tastefully appointed stall that
the Sunday Chronicle learnt the difference between a kurti

According to their business card, among goods they
trade in are handicraft, ladies handbags. "and all other
exportable items." Of particular interest, from an aesthetic
point of view, are their exquisite table linens of intricate
Zardosi work, which are being sold at just $1,000. Pure
cotton tops are just G$1500, and the gharara, a three-piece
outfit comprising a skirt, blouse and shawl, US$100.
According to Ginisha, whose unusual name means
'Goddess of Gold', most people seem to go for the jewellery.
even though they showed more than a passing interest in
the clothing. "People like a lot of Indian jewellery," she said.
These are priced at between $3,000 and $4,000.
Over at another stall, ladies blouses in a variety
of colours were also going at just $2,000, and
exquisitely made kurta pajamas for men in raw silk
for $10,000. Saris range from $6,000 to $9,000 and
the shalwar kameez in a mix of cotton and silk from
$5,000 to $10,000. Their company, according to the
youngster in charge, specialises in saris "and God
items", meaning the little day-to-day necessities
people need to decorate their altars or temples to the
various Hindu deities.
Among other stallholders to whom we spoke were the
proprietors of RK Creations who, even though their business
card describes them as 'Manufacturers and Traders of
Garments', seemed to have a little thing going on the side
with hand-carved furniture, beautifully inlaid with what we
learnt was liquid brass and copper..
According to co-owner, Jasjit Singh, the exquisite pieces
on show a.re entirely of teak and native to northern Indian;
Uttar Pradesh to be precise. Their items are being sold in
US dollars. He, too, claims to have had favourable response
from the Guyanese public so far, with expressions of interest
coming from as many as four "leading" companies.
Most of the stalls we visited carried mixed items, be it
women's, men's, or children's clothing, jewellery, or else.
Others, however, seem to prefer to stick to their guns and
concentrate their efforts on one particular item.
Among Guyanese entities to have a strong presence at
the exhibition are clothiers, 'Abilasha's Fashions' with its
flair for east-meet-west type of clothing, and Little India
Fashions which operates out of America Street, in the heart
of the city .

a decision to send a mediation team to resolve the crisis.
The Kenya Cricket Association was dissolved by the gov-

The new body, Cricket Kenya, has not yet been acknowl-

"We are interested in seeing the crisis ended amicably
for the good of the game and players," KCA chairman Sharad
Ghai told news agency AFP.
The International Cricket Council board has reconunended
that an African Cricket Association delegation should visit.
Ghai added: "The news that ICC will be sending ACA offi-
cials to mediate in the matter is very positive and welcome."
A group of leading players refused to play for the national

Greaves sprints away to
win feature 35-lap event
By Isaiah Chappelle
THE thickness of a racing
cycle tyre separated Geron
Williams from Judah Klass
for him to again cart off the
Juveniles ten-lap race in the
Demerara Distillers Limited-
sponsored cycle meet at the
National Park, yesterday.
As expected Alonzo
Greaves again sprinted away
with the feature event the 35-
lap Schoolboys & Novices race.
While last week Williams
broke away laps from the fin-
ish, his sprinting prowess saw
him edge out Klass to the fin-
ish line, clocking 27 minutes 45
seconds. Darmanand Ruderdeo
was third and picked up a
prime prize along with Klass.
The feature race also went
down to sprinting prowess, of
which Greaves was clearly the
best in the five-rider lead pack.
They clocked one hour 27 min-
utes 29 seconds, more that five
minutes behind last week's time
of one hour 21 minutes 53 sec-
Gerald Fowler was second,
John Charles third, Sherwin
Osbourne fourth. Tony Simone
fifth and Shane Boodram who
finished alone, sixth.
One prime prize each

Linden Blackman and Jorge
Williams started the day
with his now usual win in the
12-14 years Boys' three-lap
race, with Enzo Matthews sec-
ond and Scott Savory third.
Blackman carted off the
Veterans' Under-45 five-lap
race, along with the prime prize,
followed by Virgil Jones and
Linden Burrowes, while
Compton Persaud took the top
prize in the Veterans' Over-45
event, beating Patrick Santos to
second place and the third place
went to Clement Douglas.

WE HAVE previously addressed in these col
umns, some of the commonly held myths re
garding healthy eating. Today, we will con
tinue in the same vein and focus on common
myths about some specific foods, providing at the same
time, the correct facts in each case.
FATS AND OILS
1. Margarine contains less fat and calories than butter.
Margarine and butter are similar in fat and calorie content. The
difference between them lies mainly in the type of fat they
contain. Margarine is made from a vegetable oil while butter is
a product that is made from the cream of milk, a food from an
animal. One teaspoon of either regular butter or margarine has
approximately 45 calories. Low fat spreads though, usually
contain about half the amount of fat and calories as are found
in the regular product. Whichever you decide to use, remember
that your health also depends on the quantity that you use as
well as the frequency.
It is important to note that margarine may contain varying
amounts of trans fatty acids which are produced when vegetable
oils are heated (hydrogenated) in the process of being converted
to margarine. High intakes of trans fatty acids are associated
with an increased risk for heart disease. The following table
presents some figures about the saturated fat and trans fatty
acid content for margarine and butter:
Soft tub margarine is a good choice because it has less
trans fatty acids and saturated fats. It also spreads easily
directly from the refrigerator.
2. Olive oil is the only health oil today. Olive oil is rich in
monosaturated fats that lower the total cholesterol level in your
blood. Other vegetable oils such as sunflower, soy bean and
corn oils are rich in polysaturated fats that are also
healthy choices, being especially effective in
lowering total blood cholesterol. All vegetable
oils, though, are high in fat, containing about
45 calories in each teaspoon.
While the use of polyunsaturated oils
may reduce the risk of heart disease, it may
trease the risk for cancer. This is because
polyunsaturated oils are used for cooking,
carcinogenic and other harmful by-
products are produced. In the Caribbean,
this practice of heating oils for cooking
is unlike what obtains in the
Mediterranean region where oil,
especially olive oil, is added to food
without being heated. Mixed fats tend
to be safer. Overall, Caribbean
societies need to reduce their use of
food preparation methods such as
stewing and frying that involve the
heating of cooking oils. Baking, steaming and
grilling are safer and the fat content of foods cooked by these
methods is much lower.
3. Avocadoes and coconut milk/cream/oil are high in
cholesterol. Cholesterol is a fat-like substance made in the liver
and found only in foods of animal origin. Since coconuts and
avocadoes are from plant food source, they do not contain any
cholesterol. However, these foods are high in fat, but the type
of fat is different from that found in foods from animals.
Avocadoes contain mainly monounsaturated fatty acids that
tend to lower total blood cholesterol level. They are also a good
source of vitamins including vitamin B6, vitamin E and minerals,
especially potassium. Coconut milk/cream is high in saturated
fat that is of a different chemical structure than the saturated
fat in foods from animals. Coconut oil has medium chain fatty
acids that are shorter than those found in animal fats, hence,
they are more readily absorbed in the body. In either case, only
a small amount of avocadoes or coconut should be used. For
persons who need to lose or control their weight, frequent use
of too much of any food containing fat can add extra calories to
your diet and contribute to weight gain if the calories are not
used up by additional physical activity.

episodes of activity bursts.
However, this concept has not
been unanimously accepted,
and the theory of this mnode
of progression may be
explained on the basis of
measurement error using
special probes. Symptoms
include the presence of deep
pocket between the gum and
the tooth, bleeding and
shaking of, the ai ected teeth.
With easily t onset,
periodontitis disease forms are
grouped according to' the
prevalence of the conditions
which can be defined by the
relatively young age of the
patient and/or the specific local
causative factors. They occur
during childhood or adolescence
and affect less than one percent
of the population. Two
particular groups have been
characterized by the World
Workshop of. American
Academy of Periodontology
and juvenile periodontitis,
appear both in localised or
generalised forms. The major
clinical features are the presence
of severely advanced lesions
with the bleeding when irritated,
pus formation, deep pockets
between gum and affected tooth,
but with relatively small plaque
deposits at an early age.
periodontitis is usually
accompanied by ulcerative lesions
and appears to progress rather
dramatically. Necrosis of the gum
projecting between adjacent teeth
and also of the bone from the ridge
may be observed.
Today it is seen mostly in
persons diagnosed with HIV
positive. The major signs are
profuse bleeding, pocket
formation, gum retraction
and bad breath.

How often do you cnticise yourself? Research shows that up
to 90 per cent of people's thoughts are cntical or judgmental. And
the vast majority of these are aimed at oneself Here's how to be
kinder to yourself and boost .our confidence
: Critical behaviour has its origins in childhood. Mosi children
are told something negative about themselves, far more often than
they hear something posinue As they grove older, they sunmpi
carry on with this pattern theys'e no idea how to do it any
other way. As adults, most of us have a mental tape which we
play many times a day. *I'm not good enough; I didn't do well
enough; I don't deserve an thing good', or a aviation on these
themes. And, of course, "e bnng it into our working lives, where
it makes enjoying your job and being good at it a whole lot harder.
Praise, praise, praise .
For yourself of course. Behaviorists noiw kn'oi that.
with enough praise, even an appallingly behaved child can be
quickly turned into a well-behaved little darling. And there s al-
ways something to praise, in everyone. You're in the best position
to know how hard you work, how well you do. how many things
you succeed in and how much you care. So pile on the praise.
2. Use affirmations
These are positive statements and have been proven to
be powerfully effective in changing attitudes and behaviour. They
must always be in the present tense, as though they were already
true. For instance: 'I'm great at my job', 'I get noticed and ap-
preciated at work', 'I love what I do, and succeed easily'. Come
up with your own, write them down and put them somewhere

RICE CAN BE
TWICE AS NICE
JUST WHEN you thought
there was only so much you
can do with rice, than the
Guyana Rice Development
Board (GRDB) comes up with
this gem of an idea of putting
together an entire cookbook
dedicated to, and celebrating
the versatility of, the grain.
An idea that may have
sounded a bit farfetched initially,
the 'Board' has managed, with
the help of staff and students of
the Guyana School of Agricul-
ture (GSA), to cook up some
70-odd recipes, each a veritable
culinary delight in its own right.
The result is a tastefully put
together booklet of just under 55
pages, and among savoury
dishes it has to offer the harried
housewife looking for a bit of
inspiration are 'Cajun Rice';
'Rice and Pigeon Peas Salad';
'Cheesy Rice and Egg Loaf; and
something called 'Kedgeree'
whose main ingredients, besides
rice and the usual herbs, are
bite-sized pieces of pineapple,
slivers of hard-boiled egg, and a
dash of nutmeg and curry pow-
On the sweet side are such
mouthwatering affairs as 'Or-
ange and Rice Pudding'; Rice
Hawaiian, which, as the name
suggests is bound to contain co-
conut and pineapple; 'Mango
Rice Pancakes'; and 'Rice Tart'.
Among the beverages, of which
there are three, are 'Rice Wine'
and something called 'Orchata'.
There are also a few cook-
ing tips to help improve the
flavour and overall appearance
of the grain, such as what to do
to make it fluffier, and the right
amount of water to use during
Of interest as well, particu-
larly to the health-conscious, is
a table detailing all the nutrients
to be had from the various
types of rice, including the wild,
parboiled and other varieties,
courtesy of the Jamaica-based
Caribbean Food and Nutrition
As GRDB General Man-
ager, Mr. Jagnarine Singh, ob-
serves in the Foreword, the
whole purpose of taking up
such a challenge as producing a
book as unique as this was to
show that there is more to rice
than meets the eye, and to give
those who are so inclined a va-
riety of alternative ways of pre-
paring and enjoying it.
Noting that it was no acci-
dent that last year was desig-
nated International Year of Rice
(IYR) by the Food and Agricul-
ture Organisation (FAO). Singh
"Rice is an important grain
all over the world, even in coun-
tries where production is not
known or widespread. It pro-
vides jobs for millions of people
... and in places like south-east
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
As a result of the excessive flooding that was experienced recently, there
has been a noticeable increase in Paddy Bug populations especially in
Regions 4 and 5.
In view of this it is being advised that chemical measures be considered as
an option for the control of the Paddy Bug.
The following are pesticides that are recommended along with their
respective rates of application:
Recommended Insecticides Application Rates
Fastac 150-300ml/ha (60-120milac)
Actara 96g/ha (39g/ac)
Admire 100ml/ha (40ml/ac)
Pilarking 100/ml/ha (40ml/ac)
Prunto 70 \\ Pg 25-27g/ha (10-15g/ac)
Relevo 250-350m/ha (100-140ml/ac)
Please note: This list is not in order of preference or performance.
Effectiveness depends greatly on rate, time and method of application.
Guidelines to these should be carefully adhered to.
Spraying is recommended only when the number of bugs in a field
reaches or exceeds one bug per two sweeps using a sweep net.
Spraying should be done early mornings or evenings (before 08:00 hrs
and after 15:30 hrs) especially during flowering. Spraying when the
flower is open may result in an increase in the percentage of 'wind-
NB: ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AND TAKE
PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING PESTICIDES.

Here in Guyana, he says,
things are no different given its
importance not only as neces-
sary food source but the pivotal
role it plays as well in the
country's economic develop-
ment, providing well over
100,000 jobs countrywide and
contributing an approximate 11
per cent to the Gross Domestic
"It is against this backdrop
that this recipe book has
emerged, to provide Guyanese
and people around the world an
opportunity to prepare this
precious grain in a variety of
ways that will leave them well

ply titled 'Recipe Book: Ex-
ploring a Variety of Rice
Dishes', was launched last
December and is being sold
at Fogarty's. It can also be
had at the GRDB head office
on Cowan Street for $2,000.

C LINT Eastwood be
actor in the 1960s, !
the decade when
the best films of the world !
were coming not from Holly-
wood, but from Europe, from
France, Italy, and Britain,
Eastwood first had small
parts in mostly science fiction
Hollywood films of the 1950s,
but his real job as a young ac-
tor began with his starring role
in the wonderful cowboy TV
series of 'Rawhide' from 1959
to '66. 'Rawhide', like 'Maver-
ick' (not the movie), 'Lawman',
'Tales of Wells Fargo'
'Sugarfoot', 'Lone Ranger',
'Gene Autry'. 'Roy Rogers',
etc., were not available as TV
episodes in Guyana back in the
50s and 60s because there was
no local TV channels then, but
all these cowboy characters
were available locally in pharma-
cies and cake shops as Dell
comic books, brilliantly drawn
in beautiful inks.
Some of the finest methods
:ofmoral guidance depicted in CLINT I
adventures were given to young More' (
and adult Guyanese alike via Sergio
-these monthly comics..The im-
portation and airing of these
1960's American cowboy TV
episodes on Guyanese TV chan- UT
nels today would bring much
needed moral guidance (yet
given in exciting adventures) to
local TV viewing today.
When Eastwood went to
Italy in the 1960s and met Ital-
ian film-maker Sergio Leone, his
true start as an actor and direc-
tor began. Their first film, 'A
Fistful of Dollars' of 1964, with
Eastwood as the bearded 'man
with no name' in a poncho, The G
chewing a cigar and mostly si- qualify
lent, but watchful and quick the su
thinking, remade the Western the suj
into a stunning work of visual
art, while poking fun at politi- Closin
cal rivalries and showing how Marcl
low and uncivilised humans can
fall due to greed, jealousy, lust
and competition. Tende
Leone's other two Westerns PurchE
with Eastwood, 'For a Few
Dollars More' 1965, and 'The
Good, The Bad, and The Ugly'
1968, showed us what lawless,
uncivilised communities and
towns look like, where people
behave not like humans, but
monstrous beasts, demons
driven only by profit and NB:
power-seeking. WsI L
In these three films, DOCI
Eastwood is part of this low
guy of the screen

of 1965, one of three amazing Westerns made by
Leone whichlaunched his movie fame.

lifestyle, but with this differ-
ence: he acts like a Good Beast,
confronting the threats and ag-
gression of Bad Beasts, in so-
cial environments that believe
only in inhuman and rude and
crude animalistic survival. where
love between humans is laughed
at as an illusion. Imagine how
horrible real life would become
if these films were seen by in-
dividuals and groups who be-
lieved in them, and copied what
they saw on screen and turned
it into real life?
Eastwood learnt from Leone
that movies can appeal to our
better human nature by show-
ing us what we do not want to
be like. This is the lesson
Eastwood took back to Holly-
wood after his work with Leone,
and developed both as an actor
and film director. Eastwood's
method. however, like most
Hollywood methods. is based
on pragmatic and straight-for-
ward North American realism.
In his films. North Ameri-
can real life is adapted to the
screen, and Eastwood as actor,
or director, or both, develops a
process on screen where his
characters show how they over-
come their inner demons. inse-
curities, and economic poverty,
by adopting a practical moral
discipline; whether as detective,
as in his Dirty Harry movies, or
bodyguard in 'In the Line of
Fire', or jewel thief in 'Absolute
Power', of black Jazz musicians
in 'Bird', or ex-criminal in
'Unforgiven' or photographer in
the beautiful 'Bridges of Madi-
son County', or angry parent
and social outcast in 'Mystic
River', or female boxer, washed
up black trainer. or stubborn
white manager in 'Million Dol-
In all of these characters and
others in his many films.
Eastwood is not afraid to inject
a tenderness, a softness, a truth-
ful and forgiving strength which
registers on the mind of view-
ers. Eastwood's method of ex-
ploring the inner demons of his
film characters is rooted in what
he learnt from those three West-
erns he made with Sergio Leone.
In 'For a Few Dollars
More', the late Gian Maria
Volonte, one of Italy's greatest
actors, acted as Indio, one of the
best performances ever to hit
the screen; Indio's madness lies
in the lustful jealousy he feels
for the playful loving couple he
sees about to make love in a ho-
tel room. The entire film's story
we come to realise, is based on
Indio's demise when he kills the
man, rapes his girl, then keeps
the man's pocket watch, which
becomes a masochistic object of
guilt he plays with thoughtfully
for the remainder of his vicious
This theme of masculine
jealousy and dominance, and
the sick pleasure it provides

"THE Guyanese writer has a major role
to play in the rebuilding of our society...
people engaged in the arts must see
themselves as part of the development
process," declared the then President of
Guyana, the late Cheddi Jagan, at the
Guyana Prize for Literature Award
Ceremony on November 6,1992. ,
Some 30-odd years earlier, The Cheddi
Jagan Gold Medal for Literature was
initiated to encourage the flowering of ideas,
placing premium on imaginative literature of
a people gravitating towards a Guyanese
identity, a colony on the threshold of a
Guyanese nationhood. During this same
period, the History and Culture Week had
taken root, another invaluable national
institution which could be seen as a
precursor to the Guyana Festival of Arts
Two different occasions separated by a
generation of years, same dispensation, same
sentiments, a hallmark of astute leadership!
The vision Jagan had for Guyana in the
fields of literature and the arts did not die
with the ousting of his party from
government. The People's National Congress
(PNC) led by the late Forbes Burnham, who
was a founder/member of the People's
Progressive Party (PPP), carried the torch,
flaring up into the Caribbean Festival of Arts
(Carifesta) which was launched in Guyana
in 1972. The same party under the late D"
Desmond Hoyte established The Guyana DR.
Prize for Literature in 1987.
Magnanimously, Cheddi Jagan on his return to power in 1992
continued The Prize despite the abandonment of the Cheddi Jagan
Gold Medal for Literature and the very useful national exposition,
the History and Culture Week. That's the sort of person Cheddi
Jagan was: endorsing things of value.
"My philosophy: very simple the world is big and can provide
amply for all there need not be poverty and suffering. Man is
capable, given the opportunity, of fantastic cultural and intellectual
The words of Cheddi Jagan, thinker, prolific writer, and social
reformer, who was born in the humblest of situations and went on
to become a doctor to "cure the ills of society", the pride of a nation
and an icon in Caribbean politics.
Cheddi Jagan was born on March 22, 1918, in Port Mourant, on
the Corentyne Coast of Berbice, Guyana. The son of indentured
plantation workers, he grew up in a plantation economy with the
bittersweet taste of sugar branded on his mind, an influence that was
to plot his path to greatness.
David Dabydeen in a poetic tribute to Jagan said: "you were
born of cane/Not as the planters hoped-/Barefooted, beggarly of
And indeed, Jagan was only 15 when he entered Queen's College
in Georgetown, soon after passing the Cambridge, Oxford and School
Certificate examinations, factors that came to bear on his father giving
him 'all the money he could muster at the time' to help the younger
Jagan to further his studies in the U.S.A.
In the years between 1936 and 1942, he attended Howard
University, Washington, D.C., Central YMCA College, Chicago
and Northwestern University Dental School. During those
years, he worked at various menial jobs sometimes juggling
three jobs at the same time to pay for his education, all the
while enduring 'Jim-crow' discrimination which served to open
his eyes to the ills of society. He also studied hard, gaining free
tuition for his second year at Howard, and gaining entry to
While in the United States of America, he read avidly in the social
sciences, books as "Nehru's autobiography, 'Towards Freedom'
inspired and fired me, Matthew Josephson's 'Robber Barons'
explained how the powerful in America had made their fortunes...
and Karl Marx's 'Capital' was later to open whole new horizons".
While in Chicago, he married Janet Rosenberg, a union that was
to have far reaching changes in Guyana.
Returning home to Guyana, he organised and spearheaded the
formation of the Political Affairs Committee and the PAC Bulletin
in 1946. The printed word here was of seminal importance.
In 1947, he was elected to the Legislative Council where he
'literally, almost anything reports documents, Hansard I could
lay m) hands on, I read'% While imprisoned at Mazaruni jail, he read
fiction and wrote copiously, again and again displaying his respect
for literature and his thirst for knowledge, knowledge that he
assimilated and distilled in his
writings. Mention was already
made as to his encouragement of a
Guyanese literature. The
dissemination of knowledge was
done through reading clubs and
landmark event like the History and
In 1950, he formed the People's
Progressive Party. Executive
members then included Forbes
Burnham and Janet Jagan. From
April to October in the year 1953,
Jagan headed the PPP elected
government and held the portfolio
of Minister of Agriculture.
In 1954, he was imprisoned for
six months for breaking movement
restrictions order. While he was in
jail, his first book, 'Forbidden
Freedom Story of British
Guiana', was published. This
document elucidated how military
intervention, which ousted him
from power, fitted into both the
colonial policy of Britain and the
'Cold War' spearheaded by the
United States. During his
incarceration, he wrote what is so
far his only poem, written on toilet
paper (writing paper denied him)
which was smuggled out of jail as
with all of his other writings he did
therein. Even in prison, Jagan,
knowing the value of reading, displayed his respect for the printed
word. According to Janet Jagan, "he organised a reading circle for
prisoners and arranged for literature (mostly political) to come into
the prison clandestinely, so that prisoners could read and learn."
At this same time, in another prison, Martin Carter, an activist
of the PPP, was composing additional poems which were to make
him famous when eventually published under the title, 'Poems of
Resistance' in 1954.
Books, radical thinking and politics seem to go hand in
hand. Martin Carter used to visit the home of the Jagans
because of its library. Other writers like Wilson Harris and Jan
Carew frequented that home in Laluni Street, Queenstown, for
the exchange of books and of ideas, writers the creators of
ideas, fashioning our society. Cheddi Jagan was also a part of
the weekly Discussion Circle of the Carnegie Library now the
National Library "that offered a focal point for dissent and
became a stimulating experience; here one was able to speak
freely." Here the literati of the day use to meet, discussing "great
books of the European Heritage", according to A. J. Seymour.
This reading led to writing, many members of that group became
recognized authors and acquired world fame through their books.
In 1966, Jagan published his autobiographical work, 'The West
on Trial', which is considered 'a monumental study of the social,
political and economic history of Guyana from the time of European
colonisation to 1966'.
'The West on Trial' was a significant book in the literature of
Guyana, filling a lacuna the dearth of personal writing by public
figures and politicians. At the time of writing, the published
biographies and autobiographies of Guyanese could easily be cradled
in one arm. Of course, now more than ever, there is a need to preserve
the history of this country by documenting and publishing the papers
(and oral presentations) of our leaders, social and political.
Kellawan Lall pointed out how effective 'The West on Trail' was
(and still is): "people began to see themselves differently and become
more self-confident. Dr. Jagan had put them at the centre of his world"!
In 1998, 'The USA in South America' was published, providing
.'s perspective on Latin America and superpower relations viewed
through a Marxist prism'.
The ideas in his book, 'A New Global Human Order', "the
culmination of Dr. Jagan's lifelong quest to redress the balance between
the rich North and poor South", published in 1999 have been adopted
by the United Nations.
While Cheddi Jagan was writing to a mature readership,
Janet Jagan was catering for the taste and need of children.
This man and wife combination was effectively reaching out to
all Guyana, proving the value and power of the written word.
The writings of the Jagans did more to foster understanding
among Guyanese than all the talk and walk. A follow up of that

BY THE end of the upcoming
week, Guyana will have 11
yachts anchored in the
Essequibo River, just off the
Baganara Island Resort. This
is the first time since such a
large number of yachts have
come to Guyana, bringing
roughly a score of yachters.
The Sunday Chronicle
spoke to communications con-
sultant, Kit Nascimento, the
main force behind the yachting
initiative to get his views on the
feasibility of establishing a
yachting industry here in
According to Nascimento,
the initiative to bring yachts to
Guyana as a tourism-related ac-
tivity started about a year ago,
stemming from an idea he was
toying, with for a while.
Nascimento a boat lover and
former yacht racer re-estab-
lished contact with a long-time
friend and former colleague,
David Davis, who he found
owned a yacht.
According to Nascimento,
Guyana has had some history of
yachting. Prior to our indepen-
dence in 1966, he recalled that
small yachts used to be sailed in
the Essequibo. Up until re-
Nascimento said that he saw
no reason why Guyana cannot
become a notable yachting des-
tination. He said that around the

extended to Mark and St
Scheme who celebrated
March 5. Greetings from
parents, brothers and si!
time he got back into contact
with Davis, he was confident
that the country offered some-
thing that other yachting desti-
nations didn't have to offer.
"We have ideal anchorage,"
said Nascimento, "providing that
we could collaborate with one of
the tourist resorts, where they
could have meals, water, some
Nascimento said that a meet-
ing was held with about 40-50
yacht owners stationed at
Chaguaramas in Trinidad. As a
result of that, roughly a year ago,
the Davis' monohull, the Mood
Indigo came at the helm of three
other yachts. According to
Nascimento, the original flotilla
consisted of eight vessels but
half dropped out.
Sailing to Guyana, said
Nascimento, is not for every
"If there are about fifteen
hundred yachts at Chaguaramas
right now, we can only currently
convince about two or three hun-
dred of them to come to
Guyana," he said.
Nascimento said that the
while most yachters in the Car-
ibbean are accustomed to sailing
around archipelagos from one is-
land to the next on trips that
rarely take longer than one day,
sailing from Guyana to Trinidad
is a full ocean-going voyage
which can last around four or

range unless they are equipped
with expensive even for yacht
owners satellite equipment.
Also, taking the Trinidad to
Guyana route means going
against the current and prevail-
Nascimento recalled spend-
ing four of five days in constant
e-mail contact with the present
flotilla. On reaching Guyana, the
voyage upriver is another task
since there are no demarcations
to guide the yachters from, for
example, running their vessels on
to a sandbank.
He said that the present flo-
tilla had to be provided with a
pilot as well as Coast Guard as-
sistance to get them to Baganara.
According to Nascimento, he
received invaluable help from
Volton Skeet, Guyana's Chief Pi-
lot attached to the Harbour
Masters Division; as well as Eric
Veira, up until recently himself
a yacht owner, who helped plot
the navigation routes.
This, however, is not some-
thing that can continue if
Guyana wants to establish a
yachting industry. Measures
have to be taken, said
Nascimento, to provide adequate
navigational aids to help the
yachts sail independently up
Nascimento, the biggest obstacle
to yachting is presented not by
Guyana's topography but, in
fact, our currently antiquated
Customs regulations regarding
Nascimento said that cur-
rently the relevant regula-
tions only cater for commer-
cial vessels. These regulations
require several pages of paper-
work which can only be effi-
ciently undertaken by a ship-
ping agent at a very expensive
cost to the owner of the ves-
sel. He said that yacht owners
cannot expect to pay hundreds
of US dollars to file tons of
paperwork for a procedure
that in other places only re-
quires around ten US dollars
and about three pages of pa-
He said that currently, the
Customs agents who have been
involved in looking after the
documents of the present
yachters have been very helpful
but he is of the opinion that the
change needs to come from
above, something that is being
held up by the local customs bu-
Nascimento said that he is
nevertheless convinced that the
yacht industry here will grow
quickly. He said that yachters
visiting Guyana from both past
and present flotillas have had
positive things to say and that
since most yachters contribute to
yachting magazines, the word is
going to spread about what
Guyana has to offer.
WHAT'S A YACHT?
DEFINING exactly what a
yacht is a tricky subject. Perhaps
the most apt definition would
be a type of vessel, bigger than
a boat but smaller than a ship,
privately owned that is used ei-
ther for pleasure sailing or cruis-
ing, or racing. While older yachts
were primarily wind-powered,
modern yachts alternatively use
sails as well as petrol-powered
The most interesting defini-
tion however is the one found in,
"Sailing a dictionary for land-
lubbers, old salts and armchair
drifters" by Henry Beard and
"Yacht commonly used to
describe any boat prior to its
purchase, and by many boat
owners to describe their vessel
to persons who have never seen
it and are likely never to do so."
If anything, that definition
alludes to one important ele-
ment to factor in when consid-
ering what constitutes a yacht.
While boats are generally ex-
pensive, yachts on the other
hand are luxury vessels which
- in addition to their initial
price tag require very expen-
sive maintenance. Yachts are
also equipped with a variety of
amenities, including sleeping
areas, working toilets and
showers, and minibars. On
the larger yachts, there can
even be washing machines,
refrigerators, complete kitch-
ens and lounge areas.
In terms of their shape,
yachts are generally divided into
single-hull yachts and catama-
rans, which have two hulls. De-
pending on the size and equip-
ment of the yacht, it can either
be used for off-shore sailing or
Yachters themselves are gen-
erally divided into two categories
as well. There are the yacht-
owners and the yacht-renters,
both of whom have to have an
ample amount of income at their
disposal. Yacht-renters usually
opt, depending on their sailing
experience or lack of it, for
yachts with complete crews or
for what is called bare-boating,
i.e., personally manning the ves-
Yachting is a multi-billion US
dollar a year industry with the
two most popular destinations
being the Mediterranean and the
Caribbean. In the Caribbean, the
primary yachting destinations
are small islands, or island
chains like St. Barts, Nevis, and
the British and U.S. Virgin Is-
Many of these countries
have yachting industries that are
decades old, but which have
only become really significant in
the terms of contribution to
their GDP in about the last ten
to twelve years. One of the ma-
jor factors for this boom is the
recent growth in the number of
people that have become mil-
lionaires leading the list are oil
executives and Internet million-
It's not just the size of the
owner's/renters pockets have
been increasing. In recent
years, yachts which
started out at an average
length of about 32 feet dur-
ing the 1940s have been
pushing the 250-foot bar-
rier recently. Places like
the BVI have recently
launched aggressive market-
ing campaigns to attract the
owners of what those in the
industry call mega-yachts.

'Selected Correspondences 1953-1965' was published in 2003. The
latter volume is a 'key reference source on the social and political
history' of this country.
1957 to 1961, Jagan headed the second elected PPP government
and was Minister of Trade and Industry.
In 1961, Jagan became the first Premier of British Guiana. During
this period of governance, 1961 to 1964, he was instrumental in
the establishment of the .University of Guyana, now 40 years on,
because an indigenous teaching/learning institution would better serve
the need of the country.
On October 9, 1992, after 28 years out of government, Jagan
became President of Guyana, a remarkable comeback, in any sphere,
in any language!
Cheddi Jaaan died on March 6, 1997.
Ian McDonald in his tribute to Jagan in 1997 said: "He
deserved a few quiet years in the bosom of his family, his party
and the nation." And Janet Jagan who was married to the man
since August 5, 1943, knew only too well that her husband was
"not given enough time" to write more!

* for Indio's sick mind, can also be found in marny EasTwood
films. In 'Unforgiven'. the entire rilm is based on the cru-
elty of-a nian who carves up the face of a prostitute be-
cause she verbally made fun of his penis.
Sergio Leone's Italian Westerns do not share Eastwood's
harsh everyday realism, but they left space for Eastuood to go
and develop a realistic iough guy tenderness in his Hollywood
career. Leone's method, however, is the alternative to the Hol-
lywood style, and we should never forget or gihe it up. because
by removing art from the perpetual contamination of the real
world, by e\aggersLing the real world's evils and horrors, Leone's
Westerns make us move further away from perpetuating the
horrors they depict. They actually make us laugh, while
'Eastwood's does not.
Sergio Leone's three Westerns with Easrwood were really.
influenced by Eastwood's 'Rawhide' comic books, by its graphic
art which Leone took pleasure in converting into an abstract
fluid style of shape and movement, v\ without turning n into am-
Leone's use of monochrome and minimal wide screen
colour as Ennio Morricone's unforgettable instrumental
music plays, and the fact that his three Westerns were re-
ally made in Spain and not in the real American West, are
points which make such European films precious and prac-
tical original examples of art, which, in turn, because of
its exaggerated absurd style, act as PREVENTION rather
than CURE for society's ills. such as Eastwood's tough but
tender screen roles do.

CANCER IN THE DOG
SO AS not to throw one's
self in a state of panic,
one must always re-
member that a tumour is just
a swelling and not necessar-
ily a cancer.
I mentioned before that
most tumours in dogs and cats
are to be found on the surface
of the skin.
One of the most common
enlargements on the skin is a
cyst, the Sebaceous Cyst to be
exact. Now, let me go back a bit
and remind you of what you
probably already know, namely
that dogs do not have sweat
glands (they get rid of heat
ANOTHER example of people caring for affected animals
during the great flood. Here a calf is kept on a verandah.
mainly through open mouth
panting). But dogs do have se-
baceous glands in the skin.
These glands secrete attly mat-
ter which lubricates the surface
hair and skin.
If these sebaceous glands,
which occur all over the dog's
body, become infected and in-
flamed, one will notice bumps
all over the skin. These bumps
contain a thick, cheesy sub-
stance (Keratin) which is sur-
rounded by a thick capsule.
That is a sebaceous cyst. If it
is only a few cysts, then your
vet can lance and drain them.
Some of these cysts actually
burst open when "ripe" and
drain themselves. Of course, one
can surgically remove the cysts.
if they are only a few in num-
1 should mention that some
breeds seem to have a propen-
sity to develop such sebaceous
cysts. Kerry Blue Terriers,
Schnauzers and Spaniels are
In addition to sebaceous
cysts on the skin, there are
Interdigital Cysts which, as the
name suggests, are to be found
between the toes.
Now, in the third para-
graph above, I mentioned that
dogs do not have sweat
glands. Well, as nature will
have it, dogs do have (some
not so well developed) sweat
glands between their toes. If
there are inflammatory pro-
cesses (due to infection, etc)
in those glands between the
toes, infected cysts could de-
velop. These are obstinate
and it takes a long and pro-
tracted antibiotic treatment
to bring about a healing.
Let's look at some other
swellings) on the skin.
Warts and Papillomas
spring to mind. Just as in hu-
mans, warts and papillomas are
pretty common, at least here in
Guyana. I say that because
some of the learned text books
state that dogs don't seem to
have warts and papillomas too
often. Yet, we veterinarians are
confronted daily with warts/
papillomas, not lastly those that
arise in and around the mouth,
especially in the more elderly
This Oral Papillomatosis
is simply known as warts in
the mouth. These growths
(Papillontas) in the mouth
are probably caused by vi-
ruses. Initially they are small
and pink looking. Later they
become enlarged and cauli-
flower-like. This means that
many of these growths have
stalks, on the top of which
there is the rough grey-white
there are just a few, while on
other occasions the entire
mouth (inside) and the lips
are covered with these papil-
loma growths. The smart
books tell us that these oral

accord in six weeks or so. But
who wants to live with a dog
with such unsightly appear-
ance. Also, these warts are
easily bruised and the
animal's skin begins to
bleed. For these reason I ad-
vise surgery and
cauterisation. Once the ani-
nmal has been infected with
this condition and recovers,
the dog will not come down
again with this ailment.

with other types of growths.

I DAHI MURGH (Chicken with Curd)
500 gins boneless chicken cut from the breast
6 cloves garlic, ground
1 piece ginger, ground with the garlic
1 teaspoon dried fnugrecek (methi)
3 tablespoons cream or top of the milk
3 tablespoons of grated cheese (optional)

Wash the chicken well Lightly beat the curds, mix
into it all the ingredients except the lime juice and
INDI Garam Masala. Into the curds mixture, drop
the chicken, make sure you rub it into each piece.
SPONSORED BY THE MAAN
Let it soak for at least 5 to 6 hours, if possible,
overnight. To cook, put the chicken along with
the marinate onto the fire. After it comes to a boil.
reduce heat to very low. and cook for 20 minutes
to half an hour. The chicken pieces should get
cooked through but should not break up. The
liquid should be almost gone. You can make the
recipe to this stage in advance. When you are
ready to cat, put the grill in your oven on, either
skewer the chicken pieces, or put them on an oven
tray, and put under the grill for 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven tray onto a plate, and dress
with the lime juice and INDI Garam Masala
This chicken freezes successfully, and you can
make it in larger quantities if you want.
