FLOOD THREAT FROM





CONSERVANCY EASES


By Chamanlall Naipaul

UNITED Nations Develop-
ment Programme (UNDP)
consultant Robert Goodyear
is pleased with continuing
steps to divert the flow of ex-
cess water from the East
Demerara Water Conser-
vancy (EDWC) to the
Demerara River.
He gave his assessment
yesterday during an inspection
of the work along the EDWC
with Chief Executive Officer of
the National Drainage and Irri-
gation Board (NDIB), Ravi
Narine and Chairman of the Stra-
tegic Emergency Engineering
Committee (SEEC), Colonel
John Lewis.
According to Goodyear, the
waterways that have been
cleared and widened to 75 feet
will significantly pave the way
for an increase in the gravity
flow of water through sluices at
Kunia and Kofi into the
Demerara River.
This is expected to ease the
pressure on the EDWC dam and
reduce the dependence of drain-
ing excess water by pumps, a
process that is less effective and
more costly to operate, he said.
Mr Narine told the
Chronicle the increased di-
version of water from the
conservancy to the Demerara
River will make it less com-
pulsory to release water from
the EDWC through the Lama
sluice which leads to wide-
spread flooding of farmlands
in the Mahaica/Mahaicony.
He explained though that
releasing water through the
Kunia sluice would have to be
done cautiously as it would be
flowing through the Barama
Timber Company site at Land
of Canaan where the outlet to
the Demerara River has been
blocked. However, he said ne-
gotiations are under way with
Barama to have the outlet
cleared to allow the outflow of
water.
The Kunia and Kofi sluices

RENTAL


were closed since the late 1970s
when pumps were increasingly
resorted to for drainage, Narine
noted.
Mr Goodyear said he was
satisfied with the expeditious
manner in which the tendering
process for the short-term
drainage projects were carried
out, adding this showed that all
those involved appreciated the
urgency of the situation.
He said he was also
"amazed" at how quickly con-
tractors were able to mobilise
their workers and machinery fdr
the work on the waterways.
The consultant also told the
Chronicle that computer model
analyses will be done shortly to
assess probable inflows and
outflows of water during the
May/June rains with respect to
the EDWC water control sys-
tem. This, he said, would help
determine the measures and
course of action in managing
water levels.
Goodyear said the ten-
dering process for the
projects under the medium
term plan should begin soon
since the short term
programme is scheduled to
be completed by May 15.
One of the major projects
under the medium term plan is
clearing the Shanks waterway
which will drain excess water
from the EDWC into the Atlan-
tic Ocean.
In addition to clearing wa-
terways connected to the
EDWC, 20,000 clay bags have
been placed along the EDWC
embankment to bolster the low
areas.
Col Lewis said the radio
communication system used by
those monitoring the EDWC
has been improved and has been
interconnected to the system of
the Guyana Sugar Corporation
(GUYSUCO).
This has considerably re-
duced the reaction time of per-
sonnel managing and monitoring
the conservancy, compared to
what obtained during the Janu-

PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo
is to attend this week's un-
precedented summit between
South American and Arab
leaders, the Government In-
formation Agency (GINA)
announced yesterday.
The summit called by Bra-
zil President Luiz Inacio Lula da
Silva in Brasilia is meant to
boost trade and investment and
the agency said members of the
local private sector will be in
Mr Jagdeo's delegation.
GINA said Public Service
Minister Jennifer Wesford and For-
eign Minister Rudy Insanally will
also be accompanying the President
to the meeting.


Brazil, which like several
Latin American countries has a
large Arab community, pro-
posed the summit as part of its
drive to be a regional diplomatic
power and voice for the devel-
oping world.
The gathering of leaders
from 11 South American states
and 22 Arab states, the first
summit of its kind, is billed as
a means to reduce dependence
on the United States and Europe
and strengthen alliances in fo-
rums like the World Trade
Organisation and United Na-
tions.
Arab nations have pushed
issues like terrorism, Iraq and


Palestine onto the agenda, ac-
cording to diplomatic sources.
A draft of the summit dec-
laration obtained by the Reuters
news agency said the partici-
pants will support "the rights
of states and peoples to resist
foreign occupation."
It expressed concern over
U.S. sanctions on Syria and said
terrorism "in all its forms" must

An operation manual for
the worst case scenario is al-
most complete and its effective-
ness will soon be tested through
several simulation exercises in-
volving employees attached to
the EDWC, Lewis said.
He explained also that one
of the major tasks of the SEEC
is to formulate a plan to man-
age the water level of the con-
servancy to ensure that it is not
too high or too low.
Following the unprec-
edented floods in January this
year, Dutch engineers Olaf Van
Duin and Nisa Nurmohamed
were brought in by UNDP to
assess the situation and make
recommendations to improve
the management of EDWC and
the drainage system in Region
Four (Demerara/Mahaica).
The engineers made several
recommendations to be imple-
mented in the short, medium
and long terms.
Among the projects rec-
ommended for the short term.
were developing new outlets
leading to the Demerara
River and repairing sluices
and other drainage infra-
structure which had been
abandoned.

tional cooperation.
The draft called for an
international conference to
be held under U.N. auspices
to define terrorism an idea
that might lead to contradic-
tions with U.S. views on
groups like Lebanon's
Hizbollah guerrillas and Pal-
estinian Hamas militants.

AFTER


BLAIR'S


HISTORIC


VICTORY

HOWEVER justified the criticisms by his

detractors for the manner in which he involved
Britain in the pre-emptive war on Iraq, Tony
Blair has written himself into history as the first Labour
Party leader to have taken the party into three
consecutive electoral victories.
And it seems good for the British and for poor
regions of the world, including the Caribbean, but
particularly Africa, with his vision and programmes to
make "poverty history"- as that international icon, Nelson
Mandela is hoping.
Granted, it was an electoral victory that came with


a significant dent in Labour's parliamentary majority
of some 161 in the last House of Commons, and that
the Tories and Liberals gave Labourites quite a scare
right up to the final count for Wednesday's general
election.
But there can be no doubt that while he may
not remain at the helm for the full third term, the Labour
Government under Blair's leadership seems set to
continue playing a most important role in international
affairs that are also of concern to us in the Caribbean
Community.
For one thing, we hope that through the
mechanism of the Caribbean-United Kingdom Forum -
an initiative that started under Labour's watch, more
significant progress could be achieved in helping our
region to deal with pressing social and economic
challenges, among them combating the crime crisis
and concessionary development aid.
The coming G8 Summit of the rich and
powerful, which Blair is to chair in Scotland in July,
should provide some indicators of what the poor and
undeveloped nations of the world could expect in terms
of new initiatives to ease their burden.
In keeping with the fine British tradition of free
and fair elections, it was also heavily issues oriented,
although personality clashes were inevitable, with Blair
himself emerging as an issue because of the
controversies surrounding his decision to involve
Britain in the war on Iraq.
Americans, across the political divide, would


perhaps be more at ease with the return of Blair's
government, though not for any particular ideological
reason. They would also have observed how the
contesting leaders and parties carefully avoided mixing
religion with politics and did their very best to guard
against any semblance of electoral malpractices.
We extend congratulations to Blair and the Labour
Party on their historic third term victory.
Congratulations are also in order for the young
Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosvelt Skerrit, for leading
his incumbent Dominica Labour Party (DLP) to victory
for a second term on the very day of the British election.
We also take this opportunity to extend warmest
greetings and best wishes to all mothers today.

I THANK all of you supporting me in
my search for a boat to cope with the
floods that now seem quite certain to
overtake those of us living in the city
and other parts of the coast.


I got quite a few e-mails
and calls last week after I an-
nounced that I was shopping
around for a boat because the
floods on the coast could soon
make cars, trucks, buses, carts,
bikes and the likes irrelevant.

Well, Frederick, we could

Frederick Halley, a former
Chronicle staffer now living in
Canada, says he is getting me
some quotations for boats.
He is, however, worried
about the fate of his favourite
game cricket if the au-.
thorities follow through on my
suggestion to flood Georgetown
and other parts of the coast all


the city and along the East

to higher land like in Timehri,
Linden, or even further up in
our hilly and mountainous re-
gions.
Our leaders have long talked
about the vast potential in our
virgin hinterland and about bust-
ing open the interior to tap the
resources there, but a dent is
yet to be made.


If those in authority can-
not find an answer to the rising
floods on the coast, they calf
try taking test cricket to venues
in the interior and wait for the
crowds to follow.
That would make a tremen-
dous transformation of the
Guyana landscape boating
around on the coast as the flood
waters swirl and batting and
bowling and the crowds roaring
in the hills and mountains.
How about it, Tourism
Minister Manzoor Nadir? Re-
member how badly the Ameri-
cans, British and Canadians hurt
our tourism trade when they ad-
vised their citizens not to come
to Guyana after the January
floods, although the floods did
not affect the tourist sites?
Tourism is about the larg-
est money-spinner in the world
and is the backbone of the
economy in many countries.
Guyana is among the few
countries with such breathtak-
ing tourism sites and with
floods already taking a toll on
the traditional sugar and rice pil-
lars of the economy, pushing in-
land would propel the tourism
sector.
Mr Nadir, since you have
seen how hard the floods can
knock tourism here, you could
urge Cabinet to consider shift-
ing the stadium being built for
World Cup Cricket 2007 at
Providence on the East Bank
Demerara to the hills or moun-
tains.
World Cup 2007 is ex-
pected to draw huge crowds and
boost tourism and you wouldn't
want to take a chance with
floods playing hide-and-seek
with such a bonanza, would
you?
Just think about the divi-
dends from crowds going to see
a World Cup cricket game near
the Kaieteur or Orinduik falls,
or in the Rupununi!
Remember the January
floods and those adverse travel
advisories from the Americans,
British and Canadians, Mr Na-
dir.
Follow Dave Martins and


the Tradewinds and go for
cricket in the jungle!
Or you can make swim-
ming, diving, boating or rowing
our national sport. People
forced to live in water would
soon become experts in all these
games and Guyana would not
be hard put to field an Olym-
pic team for any of them.
I tell you the possibilities
are endless, if only some people
would listen.
There hasn't been much
since last week to make me
change my mind about shop-
ping around for a boat.
In fact, the head of the task
force the government assembled
to put in measures to try to
avoid a repeat of the disaster the
January floods spawned, has
advised residents in low-lying
parts of the coast to be prepared


to cope with
floods whenever
there are more A Il
than two inches
of rains.
That's an admission that
floods are now to be considered
a way of life on the coast.
See what I mean about shop-
ping around for a boat? It's either
that or sprout gills, fins, and scales
to be able to survive in what some
are telling us will be our new en-
vironment on the coast.
And you would have
thought that the waters rising
when it rains would have driven
our politicians into a sense of
urgency to together try to come
up with a solution.
Instead, as the waters
creep up, the government is try-
ing to consult the citizens of
Georgetown on replacing the


City Council with an Interim
Management Committee while
the main opposition party is
breaking up the consultations.
The floods did not and
would not discriminate between
government and opposition
supporters.
As our National Poet Mar-
tin Carter said "All are in-
volved and all would be con-
sumed."
Hello, Mr Nadir. Are you
ready to lead the charge to the
mountains and World Cup
Cricket 2007 in the jungle?
I'll be right behind you
as soon as I find a suitable
boat.

8The im p SUNDAY tof hih oil pres





The impact of high oil prices


By Rajendra Rampersaud

THE volatile movement in
the price of oil that began
early in the new millennium
and hit its highest level at
$58 per barrel by the first
quarter of this year is creat-
ing economic havoc and fi-
nancial uncertainties in the
world economy.
Rising oil prices effectively
act as a tax on importers who
experience an income shock as
their import bill goes up which
eventually leads to higher infla-
tion and put a brake on produc-
tion.
In the past the policy
makers, especially the G-7
(group of rich countries) reacted
to this scenario by wooing
OPEC (Organisation of Petro-
leum Exporting Countries) to
increase its output of oil. How-
ever, this policy failed to achieve
its desired result as there is
more to it than simply produc-
tion shortfall.
This article will try to ex-
plain the reason for the steep
rise in oil prices, its impact on
countries and the prospect for
the future.
Currently, oil accounts for
eight per cent of world trade in
goods and services and 2.5 per
cent of global economic activity
and is by far the most impor-
tant of traded commodities.
While the price of oil began to
rise early in 2000, it became
more pronounced in the last two
years.
The average price of crude
oil has risen by more than 55%
since the beginning of 2004 to
hit a peak level of $58 per bar-
rel by March of 2005, thus sur-
passing the record nominal high
set during the Gulf War in 1991.
A combination of factors,
including synchronised glo-
bal growth that resulted in
higher consumption of oil, a
series of output disruption in
oil producing countries, and
lower than usual spare capac-
ity has created a large risk
premium that caused the
skyrocketing of oil prices.
"The strong growth in the
world economy by five per cent
in 2004 triggered an exceptional
rise in the incremental demand
for oil by more than 2.6 million


barrels per day (mb/d). The
main engine of growth in GDP
and oil demand increment in
2004 was China and U.S.A.
China recorded an impressive
GDP growth of 9.5 per cent and
an oil demand increment of
17.2% while the U.S.A. experi-
enced 4.4 per cent of growth
and a 2.4 per cent rise in oil de-
mand." (AliPour Jeddi: OPEC
2005).
The incremental demand
for oil last year of 2.6 mb/d, an
increase of 3.3 per cent, repre-
sented the highest growth in al-
most three decades. The bulk
of the demand came from the
transport sector that consumes
more than 60 per cent of oil
output.
Even though the U.S.A.,
EU and Japan consume about
half of the world production,
oil consumption in the
emerging economies has
been growing at an even
faster pace. China and India
alone contributed 35 per cent
to incremental oil consump-
tion between 1990 and 2003.
The present oil saga had its
root in the Venezuelan oil strike
of 2002-2003 that removed
some 200 million barrels of oil
from the market and it was later
compounded by political insta-
bility in Nigeria and the Middle
East.
The price impact due to
supply disruption was further
magnified by historically low
spare capacity estimated at two
million barrels per day by the
end of 2003 and by far the low-
est since 1991.
Also in October of 2004 in-
ventories of heating oil in indus-
trial countries were some 20
million barrels below their five
year average. The increase in oil
output was unable to satisfy to-
tal world demand of 82.4 mil-
lion barrels per day by 2004.
These factors along with a
weaker U.S. dollar, the currency
of oil invoice, created a signifi-
cant risk premium that contrib-
uted to the escalating oil price.
Despite the textbook de-
mand supply model in the oil
market, this commodity price
volatility is also influenced by
the increased participation of
non-commercial speculators in
the oil futures market.

Honourable Mr. Justice J. Bovell-
Drakes are requested to attend

The size of the futures and
options trade in paper oil is
many times larger than trade in
crude oil. Speculative paper oil
trade has stimulated the upward
movement in crude oil prices
lately. (AliPour Jeddi: OPEC
2005).
The low spare capacity
along with supply disruption
had fed speculative buying of
oil that impacted negatively
on its price. OPEC pointed
out that greater emphasis
should be placed on down-
stream investment in oil since
present refining capacity is at
its fullest level but still falls
short of demand.
Investment in refining ca-
pacity would ease the supply
brakes on petroleum products


and ensure the smoothening of
prices.
Countries that are oil im-
porters have to seriously assess
their vulnerability as well as
their dependence on oil as their
main source of energy.
Presently, alternative
sources of energy are very much
on the country's agenda.
The large industrialized
countries have moved towards
nuclear power and recently 'Liq-
uefied Natural Gas' (LNG),
while some developing countries
have generated adequate hydro-
power as a cleaner and cheaper
source of power supply.
Today, nuclear power ac-
counts for more than 20 per
cent of U.S. energy supplies.
Natural gas, like oil, is a hydro-


carbon that is considered the
best fossil fuel that generates
electricity. The cost of produc-
ing electricity from natural gas
is much cheaper and emits only
40 per cent of carbon dioxide
when compared to coal.
Currently, natural gas is
considered the "fuel of choice"
for meeting escalating electricity
needs in both developed and de-
veloping countries.
Since the first price
shock in the early 70s, oil
importing countries have im-
proved their efficiency in
consumption.
The World Economic Out-
look (WEO) of 2005, published
by the International Monetary
Fund, stated that the average oil

AGAIN, it's the time of year
when we celebrate World
Press Freedom: Day.
And it is encouraging to
know that we have done our-
selves proud a. far as this free-
dom is concerned. For the me-
dia in Guyana today is a far cry
from what it was a short decade
ago, when there was a strangle-
hold on this fundamental right.
Also, we are extremely fortu-
nate as there are still some so-
cieties where real media freedom
is a distant dream.
As we reflect on this occa- .
sion, we must recall the period
in our history when the assault
on press freedom was so
marked that as soon as the cur-
rent administration assumed of-
fice, this issue denial of me-
dia freedom found itself high
on the Government's agenda for
change.
Restrictions on the impor-
tation of inputs for the media
were removed. Journalists were
free to express their views and
report on events as they see fit.
When for the most part of\
the previous dispensation the
state-owned Guyana Chronicle
was the onlysource 'of daily
news, there are now three dai-
lies and a host of magazines and
other publications.
Also, since 1992, television
stations have.mushroomed.
There are now some 20 pri-
vately-owned TV stations in the


country with only one state-
owned outfit.
These privately-owned out-
fits air newscasts, commentar-
ies and talk shows, some of
which are sharply anti-govern-
ment. Their bias, at times, is so
glaring that it has moved a vis-
iting BBC broadcast expert to
deem the situation outrageous.
Groups and members of society
have commented and even called
for action to stem the seeming
abuse of this freedom in some
sections.
However, not even in the
face of clear abuse of media free-
dom has the Government
moved to reduce or reverse this
freedom. The President of
Guyana has declared that his
Government will not do any-
thing to harm media freedom in
our country. His signing of the
Chapultepec Declaration a
media freedom charter is tes-
timony to this commitment.
There is still reluctance, by
a few, to accept the fact that
freedom of the media is not an
absolute. With every freedom
comes a responsibility, to the
people and to society. And usu-
ally there are codes of conduct
and laws to ensure these re-
sponsibilities are upheld.
To ensure that this freedom
serves our country, there is to-
day greater need for forward
movement on the Broadcast
Legislation. The Government

proposed a draft Broadcast Bill
that has not received the type
of support from the political
opposition for its presentation
in the National Assembly for
consideration. There needs to be
genuine commitment by all. A
Broadcast Bill, which is reflec-
tive of the inputs of all con-
cerned, is essential for further
advancing media freedom. The
Government is committed to
working with all stakeholders,
particularly media owners and
operatives and the main oppo-
sition, for its timely presenta-
tion for debate and possible.
adoption.
Undoubtedly, access to
public information now is easier
and without any real restric-
tions. Media operatives are al-
lowed to cover national events
and the activities of their pub-
lic officials and the State, unim-
peded.
During the past several
years, the Internet, introduced in
Guyana in 1994, has been a me-
dium being used increasingly for
information. The Government
today has a number of websites
to make this access to public in-
formation easier and in sync
with the technological advance-
ment in information gathering.
There has also been no curtail-
ment of access to news and in-
formation via the Internet.

comings, can serve as a watch-

as Brazil, France and the U.S.,
as fuel for vehicles.
The fuel in Brazil is

producer and consumer of fuel
from ethanol because of its
environmental advantages; it is

dog for the citizenry. It is a
given that press freedom is one
of the pillars of democracy, and
the right of the people to have
a free media is sacred. To inter-
fere with this is to strike at the
very root of our democratic so-
ciety.
Elections are coming up
next year, and we could do little
but entreat the media, those
who have the power to shape
opinion in the society, to do so
in a responsible manner, ensur-
ing that their reports and com-
mentaries are fair, and are not
designed to inflame the people.
It is high time that the media as-
sist in breaking the cycle of ten-
sions that have become synony-
mous with general elections.
Members of the media
should remind themselves of
the powerful tools they have
at their disposal which if used
responsibly can help build an
informed, prosperous and
united country.

(GINA) PRESIDENT
Bharrat Jagdeo visited
Lusignan, East Coast
Demerara yesterday to in-
spect a heavy-duty water
pump which is being used to
pump water from the
Lusignan foreshore into the
Atlantic Ocean.
The pump was operating at
full capacity when the Head of
State arrived, and villagers came
out to express their apprecia-
tion for the efforts being made
to avoid flooding during the an-
ticipated May/June rainfall. .
The President indicated the
need for residents to desist from
dumping garbage in drains and
canals, which hinder the free
flow of water, leading to wide-


spread flooding.
The pump, which has the
capacity to pump 1000 cubic
feet of water per second, was
flown in from Miami, by the
United States Agency for Inter-
national Development
SAIDID.
Chief Executive Officer of
the Guyana Sugar Corporation
(GUYSUCO), Michael Boast,
and Chief Executive Officer of
the National Drainage and Irri-.
gation Board, Ravi Naraine,
were among those on the Presi-
dential team that visited
Lusignan.
The pump is currently ser-
vicing the Lusignan/Good Hope
areas along the East Coast
Demerara.


The devastating floods
which occurred in January/Feb-
ruary this year has caused wide-
spread concern among
Guyanese who are apprehen-
sive about the imminent May/
June rainfall.
: Due to the loss of house-
hold belongings and the destruc-
tion of businesses, primarily in
the agricultural sector, Govern-
ment set up a Recovery Plan-
ning and Implementation Secre-
tariat, which has since under-
taken several initiatives to assist
those affected by the floods.
Mr. Naraine yesterday
took a media team on an in-
spection tour of the East
Coast Demerara Conser-
vancy.

MDGs and the




private




sector's role,


EDUCATION AND
GENDER
HE adoption of the
Millennium
Development Goals
(MDGs) in 2000 by all 189-
member states of the United
Nations General Assembly
was a defining moment for
global cooperation at the
turn of the millennium.
These eight goals set out
within a single framework
the key challenges facing
humanity at this point in
our existence.
While governments
have generally taken the
leadership in seeking to achieve
the MDGs, all other facets of
society have a fundamental role
to play if the MDGs are to be
achieved by 2015. This
includes civil society and
private sector organizations.
This is the second


U
LEAP
L E A P


article in a weekly series on the
MDGs and how the private
sector can help achieve them in
a way that is also profitable.
These articles lead up to the
Caribbean MDG Business
Initiative 2005, which will be
taking place in Georgetown in
June. This week we will focus
on MDG's two and three,
which are concerned with
education and gender equality.
There is no doubt that
education is of the utmost
importance to businesses, both
traditional schooling and on-the-
job training. A poorly educated
population is also a less
productive population. A well-
educated and skilled workforce
is one of the most important
factors in ensuring the
competitiveness of businesses
in an increasingly information-
based global economy.
Basically, investing in
education is to invest in the


future. Thus, businesses with
a desire to be successful in the
long run have a natural interest
in educating and developing the
skills of the people,
particularly girls and women,
that constitute the employees,
consumers and leaders of
tomorrow.
Many companies
around the world have realized
the importance of education
and gender equality for their
bottom line. Two such
companies are Aptech and
Xerox.
Vidya, Hindi for
'knowledge', is a computer
literacy programme that
Aptech, one of the two largest
computer education and
training companies in India,
launched in 1999 to expand its
course catalogue beyond the
company's core offerings
targeted at computer
professionals and corporate

though with lower margins than
most of Aptech's offerings.
However, Vidya acts as a feeder,
for higher-level courses offered
by Aptech and has increased
Aptech's market share in the
information Technology training/
education market in India,
opened new markets, particularly
in state and national governments
and schools, and helped to pave
the way for increased
international expansion.
The Vidya course, and
Aptech's .experience more
generally, shows that for-profit
approaches to education and
training can fulfill a need in
developing countries. Moreover,
by providing a high-quality
course with up-to-date content,
Aptech is providing training that
is not typically available in most
public schools. By charging a
low price and accepting a lower
margin, Aptech made Vidya
accessible to a wider segment of
the population, yet still benefited
from gaining market share.

MINISTER of Fisheries.
Crops and Other Livestock
Mr. Satydeow Sawh yester-
day distributed state land
leases to 23 farmers in the
Mahaicony area, through the
Mahaica Mahaicony Abary
(MMA) Agricultural Develop-
ment Authority.
Addressing the farmers at
the Karmat Primary School,
Mahaicony River, the Minister
told them that they are being
"empowered" since they can
take it to the bank and secure a
loan.
He added that the opportu-
nity to interact with farmers in
the area is always welcomed.
"Working together in partner-
ship we can chart a course forward,"


Minister Sawh declared.
General Manager of the
MMA, Mr. Aubrey Charles,
said that his organisation is re-
sponsible for all state land be-
tween Mahaica and the Berbice
River.
He said that early effort
was concentrated between the
Abary and Berbice River, but
this year, the focus would be on
the riverain areas.
"What we have found out is
that many persons are occupy-
ing the lands and they have no
documents to show for it," he
said.
Charles urged farmers to
regularise the lands, since
the entire process takes about
four months to complete.

VISIT TO



CANADA'S



MANITOULIN



ISLAND





Obpwe ad lhe^otawatO


By Norman Faria
LEAVING the Toronto
skyscrapers behind, we head
north into the rural part of
Ontario province.
We float along miles of
arrow-like highway, dipping
every now and again in the
gently sloping hills. We motor
through seas of corn, dairy and
vegetable farmland with their
treasured islands of granite and
wooden farm houses and barns.
And marvel at maple and birch
trees now beginning, as summer
wanes, to turn yellow and
orange in the late September
chill.
There are towns such as
Chatsworth, former home of
Canada's pioneer women's right
activist Nellie Mclung. At
Owen Sound, we stop for a
breather and pay homage to
another great Canadian, Dr.
Norman Bethune, who died in
China helping Mao's national
liberation campaigns. There is
an appreciative plaque in one of
Owen Sound's parks. The town
is part of a constituency
(parliamentary area)
represented by Guyana-born
Ovid Jackson.
By mid-day, we reach
the ferry docks at Tobermory
on the northernmost tip of
Bruce Peninsula. It is on the
shores of the mighty Lake
Huron which has to be crossed
to get to our destination
Manitoulin Island. Before the
arrival of. Europeans, the
peninsula was the home to the
Saugeen Ojibwe, one of First
Nations of America (or
Amerindians as they are called
in Guyana).
Our host, 'Captain
Doug', drives his station wagon
-onto the ferry 'Chi-Cheemaun'
for the two hour run across the
channel to Manitoulin, the
largest (approximately 1,588
square miles) fresh water island
in the world. When we pulled
into the yard of Doug's cottage
on the north shore, we had
travelled 350 miles, in a general
north-west direction, from
Toronto.
There is a resident
population of about 25,000
people. A third of these are the
descendants of the original
native peoples who are
basically the same (genetically)
as Guyana's Amerindians.
Three of Canada's First Nations
live on Manitoulin: the Odawa,
the Ojibwe and the
Pottawatomi, known
collectively as the Nishnaabe
(or sometimes called


Anishnabec).
Ettiene Brule, one of the
scouts of French explorer Samuel
de Champlain had in 1610 met
members of another 'tribe', the
Ottawas who traded valuable
beaver furs and other items with
the newcomers. Later, beginning
in the early 1800s, lumber and
maple syrup industries were
started. The main town, Little
Current, was a coaling station for
Great Lakes freighters. Those
industries later declined. The
word Manitoulin is actually from
the Ojibwe (sometimes spelt
Ojibway) language meaning
roughly 'God's Land'. Many
place names are from native
peoples' languages:
Manitowaning, Wekwemikong,
Assiginack and Skeguiandag.
Guyana-born Amerindian folk
singer David Campbell lived at
one of the towns with English
names New Providence for
several years in the 1980s.
I pay courtesy calls on
Chiefs Henry Peltier of the
Wikwemikong Band Council,
Chief Joe Hare of the
M'Chigeeng Council and Chief
Pat 'Wedaseh' Madahbee of the
Sucker Creek Council. They are
all most kind. Several of the
Councils have established and


successfully run economic
enterprises. Some are in the
tourist sector such as the
really excellent Endaa-aang
Tourism cabin and teepee
rentals operated by the
Ojibwes of Sucker Creek. The
same band has an aquaculture
project raising mainly trout in
pens in the nearby bay.
There is an ongoing
media coverage in Canada
about the country's native
people, including the Inuit
(the "Eskimos") and Metis
(mixture of European and
native people). They total
799,000 according to a 1996
census.
At the 2001 U.N.
World Conference Against
Racism in South Africa,
Canada's highest ranking
native leader (he is national
chief of the Assembly of First
Nations), Matthew Coon
Come, made some critical
remarks concerning the
Canadian federal
government's treatment of
"Indians" as they are still
popularly called in Canada
(the government Ministry is
the Ministry of Indian Affairs
and Northern Development).
Ted Moses, the Grand Chief

of the Cree First Nation in
Quebec province referred at the
same time ('Globe and Mail' 29
August 2001) to "dispossession
and discriminatory conditions"
of native people.
Indian Affairs Minister
Bob Nault immediately refuted
such claims and called for an
apology from Coon Come. The
Canadian government counters
such adverse comments by
pointing to hundreds of millions
of dollars of aid and subsidies
spent annually on Canada's
native peoples through various
Ministries and the granting of
rights to hundreds of thousands
of square miles of territory.
Ottawa also submits its human
rights records to U.N. monitoring
bodies, among other actions.
On a tour of the
aquaculture project, Chief
Madahbee offers to send
members of his band to Guyana
to observe, and assist if
necessary, the growing
aquaculture project there. He has
already visited the Caribbean (to
Trinidad) under a CIDA grant to
share expertise with Trinidadian
aquaculture (fish farming)
farmers. I promise to draw it to
the attention of Guyana's
Consulate General in Toronto
and our Embassy in Ottawa.
Chief Peltier, before he
was replaced in recent elections
by Gladys Wakegijig, at
Wikwemikong says he regularly
gets visits from native peoples
groups in Central South America
to his community, the only
unceded (not covered by any
treaty), Indian territory in
Canada. He doesn't know if any
Guyanese Amerindians came. He
and his wife visited the
Caribbean on a cruise liner and
have fond memories of the
region. What became "of
Campbell, the son of an
Amerindian captain (chief) in
Guyana, I ask? The Chief said
he had left the island and was
thought to be in British
Columbia province to the west.
The residents of the
'Wiky' band are mainly
Pottawatomi. There are a lot of
French surnames, reflecting the
early presence of French Jesuit
missionaries.
There are a few hardy
souls who stuck it out in the
agricultural sector for many
years. Among them are Euro-


Canadians Jerald Boyd and his
wife Lois near Sucker Creek.
Jerry now restores old tractors
and sells them, he explains as
they kindly give me names of
local birds including a
woodpecker I saw outside the
cottage.
Across Canada, as the
National Farmers Union website
informs you, small and medium-


sized farmers' realized income
have been halved since the
1970s due to what the national
farm group describes as the
increasing stranglehold of big
agri-producing firms and
multinational corporations. In
fairness, the Ministry of
Agriculture and Agri-Food in

screenwriter, was responsible
for several film classics in
different genres, including the
archetypal film noir, 'Double
Indemnity' (1944), the
courtroom drama, 'Witness for
the Prosecution' (1957), and the
comedy 'Some Like It Hot'
(1959). Wilder garnered a total
of 20 Academy Award
nominations during his long
career, winning 2 for Best
Director and 3 for Best
Screenplay.
The film's running
time is 115 minutes.


C ASTELLANI House
presents a much
lauded film classic,
'Sunset Boulevard', on
Tuesday, May 10, at 18:00 h.
Master director and
screenwriter, Austrian-born
Billy Wilder, directs legendary
beauty and silent screen star
Gloria Swanson in a film in
which the desperation of fading
beauty, failure, cynical ambition
and murder reveal the harsh
reality of ,the Hollywood
system behind the glamour of
the cinema screen.


In a typical film noir
drama laced with Wilder's
trademark wit, Swanson plays
Norma Desmond, an aging silent
movie star, desperate to revive
her defunct career, who recruits
a handsome, young and out of
work screenwriter, played by
William Holden, to help create
her comeback and further, attend
to her emotional needs.
The character of the
faithful butler and failed movie
director is played by Erich von
Stroheim, who had himself
directed Swanson in the lavish


failure, 'Queen Kelly', which
had ended his Hollywood
career. The cast also includes
Cecil B. De Mille, the
legendary director, Buster
Keaton the great silent screen
comedian, and Hedda Hopper,
the gossip columnist as
famous as her subjects, all
playing themselves.
The film won Best
Actor and Actress nominations
for Swanson and Holden, and an
Academy Award for Best
Screenplay for Wilder. Wilder, a
brilliant director and

Ottawa says it is doing
all it can, including subsidies
and other incentives. This
past January. it sent a
Parliamentary Secretary
across Canada to hear

Semi-finals on tonight at GFC


By Allan La Rose
THE four teams remaining in
the GFL's 2005 President's
Cup competition will tonight
match skills and tactics for a
place in the championship
game set for next Sunday at
the world famous GCC
ground.
From a field of twenty-four
teams, initially, it has now come
down to the last four and by the


end of tonight's semifinals only
two will advance to the 'Big
Dance' to challenge for the mil-
lion dollars first prize.
With the rainy season under
way, adapting to the conditions
will be a key factor in both
games, to be played at the GFC
ground.
In the first game set for
18:00 h, former national club
champions Santos will meet
with a confident Pouderoyen


of West Demerara.
After beating City teams
Conquerors and Ca.inpi,.. n
the Neil 'Pc'i Hai '. -
coached side are conlfJdc rn of
taking care of another city
opposition.
"We expect a large entou-
rage of supporters and our aim
is to reach the final. We are go-
ing all out to win and will do
so." the coach declared.
His opposite, Quincy


KONATA MANNING
Jordon, told Chronicle Sport,
that while he is hopeful of tri-
umphing he knows the game
will be a tough one.
"Right now my team is
playing a better brand of foot-
ball than Pouderoyen who I
know play for 90 minutes and
compete at a very high level, but
Santos will be very competitive
and hopefully we will be victo-
rious."
Spearheading the
Pouderoyen line-up is midfielder
Delon Josiah, whose support in


the middle will come from
Adami Hoyte, Garlon Lewis
and Delon Layne.
Ike Garraway and Zevon
Atkinson will marshal the de-
fence and on the front line it
will be Clement Brown and
Lawrence Barrington.
Santos will be pinning
their hopes on their attack-
ing trio of Dwayne Alli,
Jermaine Fraser and Chris
Duggan, with support from
captain Seon McKenzie.
The second semifinal will
see Pele against a youthful
Western Tigers who qualified
off the field of play.
After losing 1-nil to Black
Pearl in their quarter final
played at the Wales Commu-
nity Centre ground on April 22,
Tigers protested the eligibility
of a Black Pearl player.
The GFF in its investigation
ruled that the player was in vio-
lation as he had not received
any transfer from the East Bank
Football Union and so Black
Pearl were eliminated.
Tonight the youthful Ti-
gers will come up against the


side that clobbered them 3-0
in their last meeting. Pele
are also coming into this
game on a high after whip-
ping Alpha. 4-2 just three
nights ago in the GFL's Pre-
mier League.
Rejoining the side tonight
are midfielder Dirk Archer and
forward Konata Mannings who
will team up with Linden
Simmons up front. Captain
Shawn Bishop will be hoping to
continue his recent goal-scoring
form as well.
For Tigers the lanky Wayne
Giles, Shermon David and Aelon
Fraser will be tested in defence.
In attack a lot will depend
on Dwight Peters and
Edmonson Gomes, with sup-
port from teenagers Andrew
Murray Jr. and Stellon David.
Prior to'the two President's
Cup semifinals, there will be
two league matches.
At 14:00 h Northern
Rangers tackle UG in the di-
vision one and in the Premier
League fixture set for 16:00
h Fruta Conquerors come up
against Alpha United.

FUNCTIONAL






FOODS


IT IS estimated that the
global market will even
tually spend 47.6 billion
dollars on functional foods
every year.
All foods are functional by
virtue of the nutrients that they
provide. But the term functional
foods refer to foods with a bit
more. The term was first coined
by the Japanese who used it to
refer to processed foods that
contained any particular ingre-
dient that aided specific bodily
functions in addition to being
nutritious. Other countries and
nutrition bodies used different
terminology like 'foods that by
virtue of physiological active
food components provide health
benefits beyond basic nutrition'.
Other definitions encom-
passed additional ideas. For ex-
ample, the Canadian definition
adds that these foods are 'simi-
lar in appearance to a conven-
tional food consumed as a part-
of the usual diet with demon-
strated physiological- benefits.
and/or reduce the risk of chronic
diseases beyond basis nutri-
tional functions.' Other sources
limit the definition to include
only food in which 'the concen-
tration of one or more ingredi-
ents have been manipulated or
modified to enhance their con-
tribution to a healthful diet.'
The overriding idea is that these,
are foods that have some ingre-
dient or component that offers
a benefit outside of nutritional
value.
The functional food in-
dustry has been growing rap-
idly In the last few years.
These foods are expected to


address consumer needs re-
lated to:
lifestyle, energy and/or
mood enhancement
the effects of the aging
process
improving general health
through diet
prevention or management
of specific physical or health
conditions
improving sports perfor-
mance
health and nutrition of
special groups
weight, satiety and appe-
tite suppression.

TYPES OF
FUNCTIONAL
FOODS
There are many different
functional foods on the market
today. These foods can be
grouped into four basic types:
.1. Naturally occurring foods
2. Fortified foods
3. Foods with non food-ad-
ditives
4. Tailor-made foods.
Naturally occurring foods
are the oldest category of func-.
tional foods. They have always,
been' around.. These foods are
unmodified and in their natural
-state they confer health benefit.
This: category includes foods
like oats. Oats is naturally, a
valuable food source of the
soluble fibres B-glucan and
psyllium. Both these com-
pounds have been shown to
lower cholesterol. Another food
in this category is garlic which
is theorised to have medicinal


and anti-cancer properties due
to the presence of a compound
called allicin. Tomatoes which
are regarded as having also anti-
cancer properties because of the
abundant presence of the phy-
tochemical lycopene have been
included in the list of natural
functional foods. The list also
includes citrus fruits, crucifer-


ous vegetables (broccoli, cauli-
flower and cabbage) and green
tea, all with cancer-preventing
properties. Also in this group
are red wine and grapes which
are believed to protect against
cardiovascular diseases, and
cranbeny juice which is believed.
to be effective in the treatment
of bacterial urinary tract infec-
tions.
There are also animal prod-
ucts that confer a health benefit
beyond nutrition. Fish, espe-
cially those containing omega 3
fatty acids are considered func-
tional foods. Omega 3 acids are
believed to be protective against
cardiovascular disease. Dairy
products are also considered
functional foods, specifically
those that are high in calcium.
Calcium rich diets have been
shown to be protective. against
osteoporosis, a bone disease. In


addition, fermented dairy-prod-
ucts such as yoghurts, contain
probiotics (live bacterial cultures)
that confer health benefits by im-
proving the intestinal microbal-
ance of the person eating it.
Fortified foods have also
been with us a very long time.
These are intuitively functional
foods as these are foods with


extra nutrients deliberately
added to them because it was
seen as a beneficial thing to do.
This type of functional foods
includes items such as iodized
table salt, milk fortified with vi-
tamins A and D, fortified flour
and breakfast cereals. In the
U.S.A. some orange juice brands
are now fortified with calcium
and marketed as a good food to.
help prevent osteoporosis.
Herbs are increasingly being.
found in foods. These herbs are:
usually believed to have a par-
ticular health benefit like im-:
proving mood or increasing en-
ergy, memory capacity or libido
(sex drive). Food with herbs
added, range from soups and
sports drinks to chewing gum.
Tailor-made functional
foods are also a common sight
in the-market place. These.
manufactured foods have a spe-


cific purpose. Those most fa-
miliar are probably energy bars
and energy drinks. You may
have also seen breakfast cereals
formulated especially for
women.

DO THEY WORK?
Some fortified foods and
naturally occurring functional
foods have proven their worth.
Fortified foods were created to
be worthwhile and naturally oc-
curring foods are probably go-
ing to be eaten whether or not
they continue to be termed func-
tional foods. The other catego-
ries of functional foods should
be examined to determine
whether they are worthwhile on
a case by case basis.
Functional foods with
herbal additives should be espe-
cially scrutinised. The evidence
to support that these herbal ad-
ditions to the food will confer
the benefits we expect is inad-
equate. For example, ginkgo
biloba which is touted as im-
proving memory function is
added to many foods and drink.
But the quantity of ginkgo
these foods contain is usually a
very small fraction of the dos-
age shown to confer beneficial
effects in the studies these food
manufacturers quote. In addi-
tion, this reported effect of
ginkgo on memory was not seen
in persons suffering from
Alzheimer's disease, further, it
is not known if this benefit is
shown in healthy people.
On the flipside, these foods
may contain sufficient amounts
of these herbals to have a nega-
tive effect. When used in
supplements, these herbals
come with warning labels as to
the side effects, but this is not
usually the case when they are
in foods. For example, the herb
Kava Kava is known to cause
drowsiness, and warning labels
in supplements state that it
should not be used by pregnant
or breastfeeding women, or per-
sons operating heavy machinery.
Echinacea supplements warn
that they should not be taken
by persons with a compromised


immune system, for example
persons who are HIV+. These
types of warnings are not likely
to be found on foods contain-
ing these herbs.
In addition there is the po-
tential for drug interactions be-
tween the herbals and any medi-
cations that the. consumer may
be taking at the time. Again, the
consumer may not be aware of
this possibility because of a lack
of a warning label. Additionally,
when taking an herbal supple-
ment, the consumer is advised
as to the dosage and the dura-
tion for which the drug is to be
taken. However, the amount of
herbs an individual gets from
food, and the length of time he
or she takes it for, is largely up
to the person,
The wise consumer also
needs to ask if the food is
healthy. Afood may fall into the
category of functional food but
still be unhealthy because of the
presence of other undesirable
food components. A high fat,
high sugar, high energy food
fortified with calcium, for ex-
ample, is still not as healthy a
choice as lower fat, sugar and
energy food that may not have
as much calcium.
Functional foods are not
without their merits. They
have contributed to many
health advances. Iodized salt,
for instance, has greatly re-
duced the incidence of iodine
deficiency in many parts of
the world. Functional foods
have also served to make con-
sumers more aware of the
diet-health relationship, es-
pecially where the impor-
tance of eating particular
natural foods like fruits and
vegetables is highlighted.
However, consumers must
bear in mind that these are
not miracle foods they will
not cure everything. A
healthy diet including a wide
variety of foods as well as
other lifestyle factors like
exercise, stress levels and
smoking will always remain
important to health. (NYAM

Manslaughter convict freed




because of Judge's misdirections


tral 'o9-eredin eIne


ASHRAF Haniff, who
was convicted and im
prisoned for the un-
lawful killing of Sadeek
Mohamed in 1978 was freed
on a Judge's error, but was
ordered to face a new trial in
the interest of justice.
The Justices of the Guyana
Court of Appeal, Mr. Ronald
Luckhoo and Mr, Charles Fung-
A-Fatt, with additional Judge
Mr. George Pompey found that
the circumstances of the case
provided for a new trial.
That Court in 1981 pointed
out:- "The interests of the pub-
lic must be considered by see-
ing to it, generally speaking, that
those who are guilty of serious
crimes should be brought to jus-
tice and should not escape it
merely because of a technical
blunder by the Judge in the con-
duct of the trial or his summing
up to the jury."
The facts disclosed that the
appellant, Haniff, was tried for,
and convicted of the offence of
manslaughter, and, on appeal,
one of his grounds was that the
trial Judge had omitted to leave
with the jury for their consid-
eration the issue of self defence
and to give directions thereon.
Evidence was adduced as
part of the case for the prosecu-
'tion, from a statement made by
the appellant to the police. Ac-
cording to the statement, the
appellant was attacked in his
yard by the deceased with a long
paling stave and beaten with it.
As a result of the attack, the ap-
pellant suffered a broken hand
and a burst head.
Counsel for the State agreed
that the Judge ought to have left
with the jury the issue of self-
defence raised on the evidence
and to have given directions
thereon.
The Court decided to allow
the appeal and invited submis-
sions on whether or not the
case should be sent back for a
new trial. The judgment of the
Court is confined to that ques-
tion alone.
The Appellate Court held
that the interests of justice re-
quired that a new trial be or-
dered having regard in particu-
lar to the strength of the evi-
dence adduced against the ap-
pellant, the seriousness of the
offence, the prevalence of the
offence, and the fact that the
lapse of time between the date


of the incident and a new trial
would not be so long as to af-
fect the quality of the evidence
or to be prejudicial to the ap-
pellant.
An appeal was brought
against conviction and sentence
at the assizes for the offence of
manslaughter.
Mr. Peter Britton, S.C., had
appeared for the appellant,
while Mr. Carlton Weithers, the
then Assistant Director of Pub-
lic Prosecutions, represented







the State.
Justice of Appeal Ronald
Luckhoo delivered the judgment
of the AppellatieCburt. He
noted that Haniff was convicted
of the offence of manslaughter,
the particulars of which read
that he and John Simeon on Oc-
tober 25, 1978 unlawfully killed
Sadeek Mohamed.
The jury found Simeon not
guilty. The case for the prosecu-
tion was that the appellant and
Simeon acted together for the
unlawful purpose of causing in-
juries to Mohamed which re-
sulted in his death.
The witnesses called in
proof of the incident were
Hardai Mohamed, Fizul Amin,
and Carlton Daniels on whom
the prosecution strongly relied
as an independent witness.
The relevant portions of
the evidence of Daniels, for
the purposes of the appeal,
were that there was an inci-
dent which took place be-
tween 7.30 pm and 8 pm in-
volving the deceased, a dark-
complexioned East Indian
man and a fair-complexioned
East Indian man.
It was not in dispute that
Simeon was dark and the appel-
lant fair in complexion. Daniels'
narrative of the incident was
put in this way:
"About 15 minutes later, I
saw an East Indian man of fair
complexion in the yard east of
* Hardai Mohamed's yard. He
had a bottle in his hand which
he struck on the ground, and the
bottle broke. The man then ran
out of the yard and went to-
wards the southern fence of

Hardai Mohamed.
"He went up to the gate
of Hardai Mohamed and
stopped. At that time, (the de-
ceased) was standing by his
gateway. He had a stick in his
hand. The stick was about
five feet long. As the fair-
complexioned man was ap-
proaching the deceased, the
deceased ran out of the yard
with the stick, after which the
fair-complexioned East In-
dian man ran back into the
yard east of Hardai
Mohamed.
"After this, the deceased


)rge Barclay

went back in his yard, this was
around 7.30 pm. Later that
night, about 8 pm, I saw a dark
skinned East Indian man, of me-
dium build about five feet four
inches tall. He was walking from
east to west on the open space
near to the deceased's house. He
was walking towards the
deceased's home. I was still
standing on the eastern side of
the compound. The dark skin
man had a stick in his hand. He
was to the north of me. He
walked and went and stood in
front of the gate of the deceased.
About two minutes later, I saw
the fair-skinned East Indian
man, whom I had earlier seen
leaving the yard east of the de-
ceased. He had a cutlass. He
walked up to the dark skin East
Indian man who was standing
by the gate of the deceased.
"At this point the deceased
was standing in his yard. The de-
ceased and the two men who were
standing by his gate (deceased's)
started to curse each other.
"Whilst the cursing was go-
ing on, the deceased left his
yard with a stick in his hand.


After the deceased came out of
his yard, the deceased and the
fair-complexioned East Indian
man started to fight in front of
the deceased's gate. They
fought until they got in front of
the house which is west of the
deceased's house. Whilst they
were fighting .in front of that
house;.the dark skin East Indian
man weni up to the deceased
and struck him in the region of
his neck With the stick. After
this the deceased fell on the
ground. Before the dark skin
man struck the deceased, he was
merely standing around with the
stick in his hand.
"After the deceased fell,
the fair-complexioned man
who had the cutlass started to
chop the deceased w.ho was ly-
ing on the ground. Deceased
was chopped about three
times by the fair-complex-
ioned East Indian man.
"Whilst the fight was going
on, the fair-skin-man .was re-
treating and the deceased was
advancing towards the fair skin
man".
The judgment went on to
state that during the hearing of
the appeal, the attention of
counsel for the State was drawn
to the statement of the appel-
lant which was put in evidence
by the State during the case for
the prosecution.
It was to the effect that he
was attacked by the deceased
with a long paling stave in his
yard and beaten with it, and that
his hand was broken and his
head burst. He stated that he
was also lashed twice on his
back and once on his shoulder.
Luckhoo's judgment went
on to say that although at the
end of that statement the appel-
lant denied striking the deceased,.
it was obvious from the con-
tents of the statement alone,
without reference to any other

parts of the evidence adduced at
the trial, that there was material
sufficient' to raise the issue of
self-defence for the consider-
ation of the jury, and on which
the jury might have decided in
favour of the appellant.
Justice of Appeal Luckhoo
had explained: "If the Court
feels that on the evidence led at
the trial on proper directions a
reasonable jury might properly
convict, then a new trial may
rightly be ordered.
"But if the Court feels that
on the evidence led at the trial,
upon proper directions a reason-
able jury would or ought to ac-
quit, then it may justly enter a
verdict of acquittal.
"Using a decision of Justice
of Appeal Haynes in the case
of the State versus Lloyd Har-
ris, Luckhoo cited the decision


which read: "If the Court feels
that on the evidence already led,
and with the new prima facie
contradictory material available
at a retrial, a reasonable jury
might still properly convict,
then a retrial may rightly be'or-
dered.
"If, however, the. Court
feels that with the new eviden-
tial material available at a retrial
it would be unlikely or improb-
able or unreasonable for a jury
to convict, then it may justly
and perhaps ought to enter a.
verdict of acquittal."
Continuing, Justice
Luckhoo explained: "If by
that passage Haynes, J.A.
meant to convey that the
Court of Appeal should be
satisfied of the probability of
a conviction on retrial before
it orders a retrial, we would,
with respect, like positively to
dissent. We do not think it is
necessary for the Court to
reach that conclusion before

ANYONE, even with the most
* basic education, who looks at
the films of Jennifer Jones is
bound to achieve a better un-
derstanding of how our hu-
man responses to others can
mold our future, for better, or
worse. However, her emotion-
ally powerful films made be-
tween the 1940s and '60s
would mean nothing in soci-
eties which are racially di-
vided, or in other words, so-
cieties where humans are not
open to being influenced or
guided by ideas and experi-
ences, except those transmit-
ted by their specific ethnic
and cultural background, or
traditions.
Jones' film roles possess
and offer a direct human re-
sponse, based on nothing else
but human contact, whether so-.
cial, mental, or physical. In
20th century colonial and inde-
pendent Guyana, films of Jen-
nifer Jones formed part of a
large exciting film culture made
up of Guyanese from every ra-


cial and ethnic background. The
daily availability and viewing of
an enormous number of classic
films like hers helped to main-
tain a vitally precious commu-
nity of sensitive, intelligent and
civilised Guyanese citizens, de-
spite threats of social chaos
caused by'racism, political dif-
ferences, lawlessness and vio-
lence.
Jones made her film debut
in 1944 with 'Since You Went
Away', a film made at the exact
time when North American-
homes were experiencing the ab-
sence of many fathers and
brothers posted into World War
II overseas, some of whom
would never return. Jones, just
17 years old, played a strong-
headed girl her age left with her
younger sister and mother to
maintain their house under eco-
nomic hardship and uncertainty.
By focusing on various aspects
of family hardships and social
experiences brought about by
having to 'make ends meet', this
brilliant Hollywood film re-


mains relevant today far outside
. North American society and re-
flects similar human situations
found anywhere, in any nation.
In 1945, Jonesmade 'Love
Letter', a film which has become
a legendary classic; one of the
first films to delve deeply into
the traumatic events which in-
jure humans for the rest of their
lives. Co-starring with .Jones
was Joseph Cotton, an actor she
would make her first startling
films with. 'Love Letters' is
such a film, which subtly blends
intelligence, romance and psy-
chology, holding our deep inter-
est until the very end. Jones
plays a girl who loses her
memory, even her real name,
due to a trauma she experiences
in her home,
Joseph Cotton is the doc-
tor who becomes Jones' sec-
ond husband, not realising
she was the wife of a friend
who, intrigued by Cotton's
ability to write well, had
asked him to write love let-
ters on his behalf to Jones,


who became his wife based on
the love letters she had re-
ceived from the unknown
Cotton. Jones would later ex-
perience physical abuse from
her first husband which re-
sulted in a violent incident
which left him dead, causing
her traumatic memory loss.
Cotton's dedication to Jones
as his wife would later cure
her in a startling climax to
this great film which proved
Jones' ability to act roles
which delve fearlessly into
the human condition, both
mental and physical.
Jennifer Jones was an
American actress with a slim,
elegant, sensual body, but her
facial features were not typi-
cally white, but rather vaguely
suggestive of Native Indian, Ori-
ental or mulatto influence. Her
temperament on screen moved
between cool placid sophistica-
tion, and emotional outbursts
and wild fiery passion.
Jennifer's first film role in
which she erupted in raging sen-
suality and passion is 'Duel in
the Sun' of 1947, a beautiful,
colourful, notorious adult West-
ern directed by the great King
Vidor, which for decades was
the most expensive film ever
made in Hollywood. Jones acted
as the orphaned girl of mixed
Mexican/Native Indian/White
descent, bequeathed in a suicide
note by her white father, who
murdered his sensual mixed-race
wife, to be brought up by a

Jones laid down one of

School Attendance


Solve.-


1. There were 7625 students enrolled, in
the Sandstone Private School. Only 5763.
students turned up at the beginning of Term
Two this school year. How many were
absent?


2. There were 6789 in school yesterday. After
lunch, 678 students went on a field trip. How many
students were still in school?

3. Half the registered students turned up for a
march past last week. How many students were
there after 400 more turned up a few minutes before
the occasion?

4. There were only 3814 student chairs in the
stadium at the march past. How many students
did not sit on that occasion?


Consecutive numbers

Consecutive digits are digits in order. The digits
below are in order from least to greatest.


Consecutive odd numbers 1, 3, 5, 7, 9

The 3-digit numbers, 246 and 468, have consecutive
even digits.

Use the consecutive digits above to write 3-digit
numbers. Subtract each number from 813.
What do you notice about the digits in the
difference?


Estimation Sums and Differences

Estimating can help you decide whether an answer
makes sense.

Does Simon's answer below make sense?

689
+79
768


We can estimate the answer by rounding the
addends to the nearest ten,

689 690
79 +80
770

Estimated sum is 770


Simon's answer is near 770, so it makes sense.


June spent $875. She gave the counter clerk $1000.
She estimated her change to the nearest hundred
dollars.

$1000
$875 -$900
S $100

Estimated change is $100. June's change
was $125. It was close to June's estimate
of $100.


Let's see:

$1000
-$875
$125

Actual change is $125.

Again;

$7000 is given to pay for goods costing $6,567. How
much change is given back?

Amount given $7,000
Total -$6,567
Change $433 .

PRESRVIN OU LITRAR HERTAG


1905


by Petamber Persaud
R. LAL Singh, who was born
in Morawhana, a little known
Amerindian village in the
North West District of
Guyana, went on to fight for
the independence of one of
the world's largest democra-
cies, India.
In themid-1940s, Singh be-'
came part of the Congress Party
of India, answering the call of
Mohandas Gandhi for volun-
teers to assist in the struggle to
rid India of the burden of Brit-
ish colonialism. The period of
time Singh served the party was


1970


spent in India, London and Cali-
fornia. That party, which also
had at its helm Cambridge-edu-
cated Jawaharlal Nehru, fought
and won Independence of India
from Britain in 1947.
Singh got unto that battle
wagon through the India-
America Society which he
headed as president for three
terms. That society was just
one of many pre-indepen-
dence movements. With the
work the freedom fighter/ad-
venturer ended in his ances-
tral home, India, Singh
moved back to the USA which
was his adopted home. That

make a statement that you are happy to be noticed because you know you look good.
3. In work situations, wear whatever fits with the office culture (jeans, skirt, suit) so you're ac-
cepted by your colleagues. But always dress slightly above your level, with the best clothes you can
afford, to make the statement that you're worth it.
4. Have your own individual take on styling so that you're not slavishly following fashion. De-
velop a signature element that marks you out wonderful earrings, a classy scarf or a signature scent.
5. If choosing between a conservative look and aistunning one, resist the temptation to play it safe.
Dress to turn heads and you will which in itself will boost your self-esteem.
Once you've started to build your self-esteem, you'll find your increased confidence affecting how
you act in the rest of your life. Here are more tips to build on that particularly in the workplace.
1..People with low self-esteem often put such high expectations on themselves that they can never
feel good. Get a clear idea of what you can expect of yourself in the workplace checking it out with
your manager and work to that.
2. Avoid colleagues who sap your self-esteem, either by putting you down or by building them-
selves up so much that you feel inferior. Instead, mix with ones who because they believe in them-
selves, are secure enough to let yoiu do the same.
3. It can be tempting to think you have to handle everything alone, and struggle on :even when
you're not coping. But a truly confident person admits when they've reached their limits and asks
clearly for more resources from colleagues and managers.
4. Get a mentor or buddy, someone a few steps above you on the work ladder, who is positive and
who can encourage you. Meet regularly say once a month.- to review your progress and plan the next
move. "
5. You may feel that you need to hide your successes that it's not good to brag. But it's vital to
acknowledge them to yourself and let others realise you're doing well. So be proud of yourvictories -
and share them with others.
Making decisions particularly on big issues such Os job change or project management may tap
into your self-doubt, so you spend all your time wobbling about what to do.,Here's a useful five part
strategy.
1. First set a goal and make it clear, positive and'yours. In particular, to begin with, don't worry:
about what other people want; go with your own gut reaction./
2. Collect information. Choose three people you respect, and who respect yonu Don't ask

move also connected him to
his birthplace, British
Guiana, still under the yoke
of British colonialism.
After 1947, he started
working behind the scenes in the
American film industry. This
caused him to miss the political
awakening that was sweeping
the Caribbean and Guyana at the
time. In Guyana, Cheddi Jagan
was just getting into his stride
with the founding of the Politi-
cal Affairs Committee.
Coincidentally, during
Singh's attachment to the. film
industry, he was technical ad-
viser to the filming of 'Green
Mansions' which was screened
at the Astor cinema,
Georgetown, in the 1980s. The
novel of the same name was
written by the naturalist Will-
iam Henry Hudson in 1904 and
is considered to be one the first
novels on Guyana. (The other
novels in this category are Ed-
ward Jenkins' 'Lutchmee and
Dilloo' 1877, James Rodway's


'In Guiana Wild' 1899, and A.
R. F. Webber's 'Those that be
in Bondage' 1917.) 'Green
Mansions' was reissued several
times by various publishing
houses.
R. Lal Singh was born on
August 8, 1905 to East Indian
parents. He grew up among the
Makushi Indians of Guyana un-
til he was almost ten years. The
Jesuit priests of Morawhana
were his teachers. His religious
background was a syncretism of
traditional Amerindian beliefs,
Hindu rituals and Catholic
dogma.
At 17, he went to see his fa-
ther in the USA, staying on to
further his education.
In 1946, he met Gwen and
they were married in 1956. It
was Gwen Singh who in 1971
after the death of her husband,
published his book of poems,
'Celebrating the Richness of
Life'. Later that year, Gwen did
a remarkable thing; she came to
Guyana and donated to the Na-
tional Library a set of books
written by her husband. This


N


effort was significant in that
books published outside of
Guyana are not required to be
deposited at this premier re-
pository of Guyanese books.
This author strongly believes
that such a regulation ought to
be revisited and revamped so
that anyone living in Guyana
could have access to material
published abroad.
Singh also wrote two auto-
biographies and two children
books. One of the autobiogra-
phies captured the ten years he
spent with the Makushi Indi-
ans.
His poem, 'The Bulbul and
the Dhobie Man' is cited in 'An
Introduction to the Poetry of
the East Indian Diaspora, 1901
- 1991' edited and published by
Kampta Karran in 1991.
R. Lal Singh lived an active
life, travelling frequently in
company with his wife, cel-
ebrating the richness of life in
such poems like 'For
Gwendolyn and Me' and 'The
boughs of Love'. Yet he longed
for escape, 'o, how I long for

tion to be paid to her academic
pursuits.
As for what she wants to be
when she grows up, this varies
from time to time. At times Sia
would like to become a baby
doctor, at other times a trainer
of snakes, and then again one of
the characters from Animal

"My Mum tells me that if
I don't study I will end up sell-

I don't really want to do that,"
says Sia.
"She will have to decide
what her career will be," says
Dr. Gandi," but as for the
other things I wish she would
stick with music."
Sia was introduced to the
piano at five, and she likes all
sorts of music, including soca.
She would also like to play the
violin and guitar, but finding
teachers for these instruments in
Guyana is not easy.
"I did music as a child in
Trinidad, and I found it to be
very relaxing. And it .also
builds your confidence," says
Dr. Gandi. "Examination
time comes around and you
go into a room with a total

But her

When she and Mum get
together at night and after they

Taking care

of 'Baby'


IT CAN be a challenging job for someone with both arms
to tend to a baby. but Lindener Marcema Anthony who has
one arm does the job with such ease and grace it amazes
you.
The Sunday Chronicle bumped into the 34-N.ear-old pleas-
ant, relaxed and srnihng Marcema with a cute three-month called
"Baby' tucked comfortably and lovingly under her arm during
the launching ceremony of the Linden Econonmc Achievement
(LEAP) projects the Business Centre and the Linden Economic
Achievement Fund .LEAF) last Friday.
The baby was so comfortable and serene that it took a while
before it was realized that NMarcema has one arm.
Marcema who hails from South Amelia's Ward in the
mining town told the Chronicle the loss of one arm since
she was 13 has never really hampered her life. She said
she has been able to put that behind her and has main-
tained a positive outlook to life as a committed Christian.
Nlarcema related that she had broken her right arm which
subsequently became infected. She was forced to amputate
the limb.
Actually the baby is not hers, but that of a friend, Juseda
Niles who is working as a salesgirl. Marcema takes care of
'Baby' during the day.
But how does Marcema cope with the usual chores associ-
ated with taking care of babies? She smilingly related: "It is not
difficult for me. I change nappies and feed her without any dif-
ficulty. She is a good baby. She hardly ever cries or behaves
badly so I hardly have any difficulties with her."
Marcema said she really enjoys taking care of the baby,
but smilingly indicated that one day "I hope to get chil-
dren of my own." (Chamanlall Naipaul)


N THIS contemporary
age there are numerous
theories to anti-aging
and longevity. Topics such as
medical breakthroughs,
health and fitness gadgets,
the right diets, supplements,
and daily workouts can con-
stitute hefty discussions on
this issue.
For one of Guyana's new-
est centenarians, such discourse
has been of little consequence.
In fact, Mrs. Muriel
Battice, in an interview recently,
said, "I never thought that I'd
live so long." She turned 100 on
Sunday, April 10, 2005. Mrs.
Battice didn't offer any scien-
tific or otherwise practical
method for living a century. She
says, "What is impossible with
man is possible with God."
Although surprised over her
long sojourn here on earth she
is overcome with joy at attain-
ing this remarkable milestone.
She strongly believes that in-
cluding Jesus in her life is what
has made it so beautiful.
From a humble upbringing
she moved on to excel in cater-
ing, partnered with her husband
in purchasing their own home,
aided the financial freedom of
many, and shared the Gospel of
Jesus Christ thereby winning
souls for Him.
At 100 years old, her voice
remains powerful, her memory
intact and her balance, though
supported by a stick, well set.
Her blurred sight and limited
hearing are some of the few


clues to her age.
For as long as Sister Battice
can remember she has been a
deep believer in God. The old-
eit member of First Assemblh
of God, Wortmanville, she says
that Christianity is the most
precious gift that her mother
gave to her and her brother and
sister. The matriarch of her fam-
ily became a single mother after
her father died when she was a
baby.
"She worked hard to take
care of us, sent us to school,
Sunday school and church," she
recalled.
Born in James Street
Albouystown, Georgetown,
Guyana, she grew up in
Charlestown, another ward
in the city, and had an enjoy-
able childhood.
"I liked to skip, play Lick
and Pinch (modem Jacks) and
Rounders. We were very poor,
but decent. My mother gave us
training and taught us to be hon-
est and contented with what she
provided," Sister Battice re-
called.
Her family's poverty
stimulated her to be thrifty as a
girl. With the same spirit, as a
woman, she ventured into the
'Box' enterprise, eventually be-
coming a recognized and trusted
licensed Box Holder. This is an
endeavour that she kept up for-
many years, relinquishing it,
only, in face of her husband's
death in 1980.
"He was very nice and
loving. I was attracted to him
because he liked to dress and
I like to dress too. He was in


the church choir," is what she
said of the initial appeal of
her husband. He was a
Moulder with Demerara
Foundrs and she, a Caterer.
They attended St. Phillip's
Anglican Church in St.
Phillip's Green Georgetown
and were married on Novem-
ber 23, 1940.
In time, Sister Battice and
her husband pursued separate
spiritual paths. He became em-
bedded at St. Thomas Method-
ist and later rose to Grandmas-
ter of the Lodge Organisation.
Sister Battice followed the Pen-
tecostal movement and is now -
.greatly regarded as a founder of
First Assembly of God,
Wortmanville.
: It was at a Pentecostal Re-
vival Time meeting held at the
Plaza Cinema, in the early era
of First Assembly of God,
Wortmanville that Sister Battice
heard the scripture verse 'If
you are not born again you can-
not enter into the Kingdom of
Heaven.'
Sister Battice said that this
scripture resonated with her
giving her motivation to study
the Bible.
"I learnt the Bible in a way
that we didn't at the Anglican
Church and I questioned 'you
mean that if I'm not born again
I will not see this God that my
mother has been teaching me
about and who I believe in?' So
I got baptised," she said.
She attended regular fellow-
ship meetings, which were held
at a Bent Street, Wortmanville
school prior to the construction

Centenarian,
Muriel Battice

of First Assembly of God
Church at its present location,
D'Urban Street, Wortmanville.
Utilising her expertise with
food, Sister Battice, cooked and
baked'for the church's social ac-
tivities, cleaned the church, and
she and others in the women's
group pooled their talent in
making and merchandising items,
proceeds from which, were con-
tributed the church's building
fund or other work.
This centenarian brought to
mind her experience with God
that guided her into evangelism:
"After I became a believer, God
filled me with the Holy Spirit
and after one prayer meeting,
while at home, the Holy Spirit
spoke to me saying 'You have
this Bible and so many people
want to know about it. Salva-
tion is not for you alone but for
you to walk (in a manner) that
others might be saved'," she
said.
Until she started overseas
travel, which kept her away
from home for months, Sister
Battice routinely shared the
Gospel with residents of the
Palms Geriatric Home,
Brickdam, Georgetown, at
open-air meetings and during
house-to-house visitation.
Her report is: "Many came
to know the Lord."
She has holidayed in the
United States of America,
Canada and England. In England,
she spent time with her only
nephew George, who turns 79
in July this year. It was on one
of her vacations in England that
she got an urge to return home
before her scheduled departure.
"One Sunday as I was read-
ing my Bible I heard a voice
saying 'you're wanted at home'.
When I told my nephew that 1
wanted to go back he wasn't
pleased because he says that he
always pays his money for me
to come and I don't stay out the
time because I want to go back
to church," she mused.
Her husband became ill the
very Sunday around the same
time that Sister Battice had
heard the Holy Spirit speak to
her. She was home when he most
needed her. She cared for him
until he died.
To her, his death is not

distant, although she has already outlived him by 25 :years. But recorded in perhaps her
i most cherished possession, the Holy Bible, are landmark dates pertaining to the birth, death
and marriage of her mother, husband and other lo'ed ones.
"I'm the only one left. everybody die and leave me, is only George still ahve," she says Sister
Battice bore no children.
She lived alone after her husband's death at their Robb Street. Georgetown property, where
they spent most of their marital life. However. as she increased in age taking adequate care of
herself became progressively difficult, and a man whom she helped to nurture as a lad insisted that
she move in with his family.
Mr. James Beckles is now 78 years old. \uthout his natural vision, but not lacking in love for
Sister Baitice. who assisted in mothering him after his mother died. For seven years he ensured
that she had an excellent breakfast each morning before six 'o' clock. That was until Ms. Yvonne
Horatio became her caregiver six, ears go.
Ms. Horano says that Sister Bamnce can still make her tea. she eais well and insists on keeping
her surroundings clean
"I'm proud that she has turned 100 min my hands She and my mother were very close and she
was like a mother to me I would do anything for her." saNs Mr. Beckles.
On her birthday. Sister Barnce %was honoured at a church service at First Assembly of God,
Wortmanville and had an afternoon part, held in her honour.
In her sturdy voice she offered these words of counsel: "Serve the Lord in spirit and in
truth, be honest in all your dealings and the Lord will honour and help you."

acted out in blazingly sunny
and vividly colourful Western
landscape.
Jennifer Jones was the per-
fect actress for some of
Hollywood's most daring, radi-
cal and emotionally gripping
films of the 1940s and '50s.
Films like 'We Were Strangers'
directed by John Huston, filmed
partly in Cuba under dangerous
circumstances, as the film por-
trayed Jones along with John
Garfield and Gilbert Roland as
subversives fighting a corrupt
dictatorship in pre-Castro Cuba.
'Madame Bovary', with
Jones as Bovary, considered by
many the best film-version to be


made from the classic French
novel by Flaubert, who is por-
trayed superbly by James Ma-
son, placed before the courts for.
writing this 'immoral' classic
novel as the film opens.-'Ruby
Gentry' of 1953 is Jones' most
angry and provocative role, as
a young woman of poor back-
ground who ruins her chances
for a better life by plotting and
scheming to get ahead. Charlton
Heston played a rich plantation
owner in tropical deep South
where the film is set, he has an
affair with Jones, but leaves her
bitter when he rejects her for 'a
more refined upper class girl.
After 1955, Jones would act
some of her most beautiful and
romantic roles in unforgettable
films like 'Love is a Many
Splendoured Thing' with Will-
iam Holden, and 'Good Mornm


.EItuu~ i, ;. , l lU l
Night' with Jason Robads, 1962.
These and other Jennifer
Jones films should always be
available for the'Guyanese
public since to see Jones
perform is to experience the
power and beauty of female
passion, strength, kindness.
and maturity. In these films.
Jones acts as the romantic
woman 'who defies cultural,

ercising her right to find
truth and true love. The sort
of woman who is playful and

it exercises its discretion to order a retrial.
"There is no principle of law that the improbability of a conviction was a conclusive rea-
son in every case for not ordering a retrial. Perhaps Haynes, J.A. has too widely stated his
proposition and did not intend to convey that 'improbability' was a conclusive test in every
case" Luckhoo emphasised.
He added: "We do not propose to enter into a discussion of the evidence adduced at the
trial because of the course which we have decided to take. It is not desirable for the Court to
discuss, or to make observations on the effect of the evidence because such observations might
tend to prejudice a fair rehearing of the case.
"We have come to the conclusion that the appeal be allowed and that the interests of jus-
tice require that a new trial be ordered.
"In the exercise of our discretion we have borne in mind what has been urged on
behalf of the appellant, and, in particular, the following factors:-

(a) the strength of the evidence adduced at their e n'us trial against the appellant inow
that we have read the transcript of the whole of the e\ dence given at ;he tri il. we feel that on
proper directions, a reasonable jury might still properly convict;
(b) the seriousness of the offence;
(c) the prevalence of the offence; and
(d) the fact that the lapse of time between the date of the incident and a new trial would
not be so long as to affect the quality of the evidence on either side, or to prejudice the appel-
lant from having all material witnesses available at ie rehearing. It is just a little over two
years since the incident had taken place, and the case is not one of any complexity.
"For these reasons, we would allow the appeal, set aside the conviction and order a
new trial. Appeal allowed. New trial ordered", Luckhoo declared.

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today we'll
look at The Atmosphere and Tides.

The Atmosphere
There are many times when we cannot see the Sun,
the Moon or the stars for drifting clouds carried along
in the air.

The air that surrounds us is part of a layer many
miles thick all round the Earth. We live at the bottom
of this layer just as some fish live at the bottom of
the sea. This layer of air is called, the atmosphere.


the Earth's surface, because the air gradually gets
less and less until there is nothing but space.


Try this calculation
Measure the length and breathe of a desk lid in
inches, and multiply them together to find the area
in square inches. Work out the total pressure on
the lid of the desk.

You may wonder why it is that you can lift the desk
lid so easily if all this weight of air is pressing on it.
The reason is that there is also air inside your desk
pressing upwards just as powerfully.


An experiment that was done about 300 years ago
will help you to understand why we do not feel
Pressed down by the weight of the air above and all
round us.
For this experiment, a scientist made a large hollow
copper globe and cut it in half. The two halves were
made to fit together exactly, and then all the air was
pumped out
It required two teams of horses, one team
harnessed to each half, to pull them apart because
the great pressure of the air on the outside of the
sphere was not balanced by air inside.

Questions
What would happen if you could pump all the air
'e out of the desk?

THERE is an abnormal con-
dition that lies within the
scope of dentistry which is
quiet common but which fre-
quently goes undiagnosed or
misdiagnosed and untreated.
If you experience headaches,
discommoding, clicking and
popping in the jaw or pain in
the face, neck or shoulders,
the problem may literally be
all in your head. You may
suffer from a misalignment
of the temporomandibular
joint (TMJ), the joint that al-
lows your mouth to open,
close and move from side to
side.
Other symptoms which in-
dicate that you may be suffer-
ing from TMJ disorder include


wearing down of the teeth, ten-
derness of the jaw muscles, dif-
ficulty in opening the mouth,
when the jaw gets "stuck open",
earaches without ear infection,
pain with chewing, yawning or
opening the mouth widely, pain
in and around the ear, ear feel-
ing stuffy or itchy; ringing, roar-
ing, hissing or buzzing in the ear
and dizziness.
Five pairs of muscles and
TMJ that connects -the upper
and lower jaws allow you to
open and close your mouth, and
control the forward, backward
and side-to-side movements of
the lower jaw. Any problem
that prevents this complex sys-
tem of the muscles, ligaments,
bones and joints from working

other problems known as TMJ

The jaw joint can become
"out of alignment for many rea-
sons. These include teeth that
do not fit together properly
when the ijaw arc clenched. This
condition could conic aboul
from genetics le.g. piotruding

cradling the phone between the
Car and lthe shoulder, extractions
or injuries like whiplash or a
blow to the jaw. Stress plays a
major role too and people often
experience their first TMJ dis-
comfort during stressful times.
You should quit harmful
habits such as teeth grinding,
cradling the phone between
your head and shoulder etc. Do
not hesitate to consult your
dentist if you experience dis-
comfort anywhere in your head,
neck or shoulders.
It is not unusual for your
jaw to be out of alignment and
yet you experience discomfort.
Sometimes TMJ- syndrome pa-
tients can alleviate the pain and
discomfort with conservative
home care only.

If the pain is considered to be

used instead.

MOTIVATED
From page IX
them to make the decision for you but do ask 'what do I
need to know in order-to make a good decision here'. Then
let what you've learned settle for a while.
3. Remind yourself of your abilities. You may be wary of
making a decision because you are scared you won't cope. So
make a list maybe with the support of a colleague of the
strengths you have that could help you action your decision.
4. Remove blocks. If you know that something is stopping
you from putting action to any decision you make, pinpoint it.
Then find ways round the block by brainstorming creative so-
lutions.
5. Make the best decision you can. Then sleep on it. If in
the morning you have doubts, imagine deciding otherwise and
see how that feels. If in the morning there seem to be no major
objections, then action what you've decided and stick with
that.
Dealing with difficult people at work or at home can be
a real challenge to your self-belief.
1. A difficult person is often difficult because they lack self-
esteem. Instead of being angry or scared of them, look behind
the facade and imagine a howling baby. That'll alter the. way
you deal with them and so shift the way they react to you.
2. A difficult person can often make you feel in the wrong.
So when dealing with one, remind yourself of your strong
points; if necessary, keep an actual list that you can read through
before and after any tricky meetings.
3. Reward difficult people for not being difficult. Smile, con-
gratulate or act upon anything they do that is positive or con-
structive. If they're 'rewarded' for being easy rather than diffi-
cult, they'll learn that's a better way.
4. Bridge the gap between you and them. Ask yourself what
part of what they want you could actually give them then
offer that, as far as you possibly can. They'll see you are willing
to deal, and so will be more willing to deal with you.
5. Develop assertiveness skills ways of stating clearly your
point of view without backing down. See the resources section
for ways to become more assertive. Your Human Resources or
Personnel Department may also be able to help here.

DEVELOP CONFIDENCE
A confident woman makes a successful partner so bring
your self-esteem into your love life.
1. Make a list of what you need and deserve from a partner
and from a relationship. This isn't just about going for what
you need it's about holding out for it. Settling for second best
even.if it seems easier is never the answer.
2. Never expect your relationship to fill the gap left in your
heart by low self-esteem. If you don't love yourself, no one
else will love you.
3. Giving to your partner will raise your self-esteem be-
cause you'll learn you have something to give. Taking from your
partner will boost your self-esteem because you'll learn they
feel you're worth it.
4. If you realise that you had more confidence before you
met your partner or that you get your confidence back when
they are absent it is the wrong relationship. Walk.
5. After a relationship breakdown, it will take time for your
confidence to build back up. Don't try to boost it temporarily
by leaping into another relationship; you'll only fail and take
another knock. Instead; give yourself at least three months for
every year your relationship lasted before you date again. That
will give you time to grieve, learn the lessons and feel good about
yourself again.
Survey after survey suggests that men find confidence in
bed the ultimate turn on.
1. If there's something you want from your partner, ask
for it directly. Most men love to please and want to know how,
so clear and confident requests work.
2. Remember that in bed, men are far too ecstatic about be-
ing cuddled, touched and aroused to worry about whether you
look like Kylie.
S3. If he asks you to do something and you don't know how,
don't panic. instead, ask him to teach you to do what he likes
in the way he likes. He'll feel good about getting exactly what
he wants andyou will learn something new!
4. If he asks you do to something and the .thought turns
you off completely, try it once to check whether the reality is
any better than your horror fantasy. If it's not, say a clear no.
You deserve to only do things you want to; he deserves to have
a partner who is enjoying herself all the time.
Touching boosts oxytocin, which in turn makes you feel
good about yourself. So if you feel low in self-esteem, ask
for a cuddle. No need to have sex unless you want that too
a cuddle alone will often give you the confidence boost

A FTER havlk' i it sonetline discussing canine
chronology and psiting that the "7 human years =
1 dog year" nythb should not be taken as gospel. let
us no" gihe a more serious look at the physical and
psychological lbehavioural) changes in the elderly dog as well
as those things that influence his Aellbeing and longeiil).
Before we go an) further allow me to make some general
remarks which rely heavily upon a texl by Drs Carlson and
Giffin.
A progressive and irre ersible detenoration of' cellular and organ
function occurs in the tissues of all animals %,ith the passage of
time. Although its effects are familiar to everyone, the exact
mechanism by which organic sltenms eventually run .out of
protoplasmic vitality is an unsolved mystery.
I don't know what percentage of Guyana's dog population is 7
- 10 years. It is estimated that about 10 per cent of the dog
population is over the age of 10 years. But all dogs do not age at
the same rate. A dog's biologic age depends upon many things: his
genetic background, his nutritional status, the presence of coexistent
diseases, and environmental stresses. Of importance is the care the
dog has received through his life. Well-cared-for pets suffer fewer
infirmities as they grow older. But when sickness, illness or injury
is neglected, the'aging process is accelerated.


continued
Large dogs seem to .age more rapidly\ than smaller ones St
Bernard,. Gcrman Shepherds. Great Danes and othei breeds reach
old age at 10 to 12 years. To', breeds .are old at 14 to 16 earss
Although ai'n is nmei'.able and irreiersible, some ol the
infirnuties attributed to old .age i a'1 in tact. he due to dis-e e -
therefore coTectable or -at least treatable.
The care ot the older dog is directed at preventing premature
aging. avoiding ph sic:il and emotional stress, and meeting special
nutritional needs. Dogs older than six years of age should have
a complete ph sical examination every six months. Usually
it will include a urinalysis, stool exam and complete blood
count. At times, liver and kidney function tests, chest X-ray,
and electrocardiogram are indicated. Any disease or abnormal
condition which may be present can be dealt with before it leads to
a more serious infirmity. Cataracts, strictures, bone deposits, and
other causes of incipient disability are often .amenable to surgical
correction or medical management. Heart medications, analgesics,
enzymes, and hormones can relieve discomfort and improve organ
performance.
Enjoy and perhaps e'en ponder on the significance of

Justin says




'SHREK' YES;



WEDDING Ni!
By Charlie Amter
JUSTIN Timberlake and Cameron. Diaz are ready for
a blockbuster partnership. And no, we're not talking
about that rumoured weekend wedding.
The 'Rock Your Body' singer will voice the role of Artie a
teenage King Anhur in DreamWorks' Shrek 3, which is due in
2007. Mike Myers,. Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas will
all be back.
Although Diaz is already part of the Shrek family, voicing
the role of Shrek's missus, Fiona, in the first two instalments
of the Oscar- winning ogre franchise, producer Aaron Warner in-
sists the fact that the two are an item had nothing to do with
the casting decision.
"Our desire was to get somebody who is visible and had
their own persona to bring to the table," Warner tells USA To-
day.
"Justin fit the bill perfectly."
Aside from a stint as a Mouseketeer, Timberlake hasn't
shown much in the way of acting chops. But the 'N Syncer
turned Grammy-winning Justify-er is set to make his presence
felt at the multiplex this year with two features.
The budding thespian will first appear in Edison, playing a
journalist opposite Oscar-winning costars Morgan Freeman and
Kevin Spacey. The film wrapped last year.
Timberlake will then be seen in Nick Cassavetes' Alpha Dog
as a gang member- The film is slated to hit theaters this fall.
Meanwhile, Timberlake, 24, and Diaz, 32, are fending off
rumours of a wedding this weekend.
London's News of the World reported that the duo planned
to tie the knot ht the Grand-Hotel Du Cap-Ferrat in southern
France, with Ozzy and Sharon iOsbourne among the invitees.
But the couple. who spent part of this past weekend at the
Coachella Festival in Southern Califormnia, say you can hold off
on the wedding gifts for now.
On Monday Diaz's publidsL, Brad Cafarelli, called the
, purported npti-al news "toaily fab" *
