2 SUNDAY CHRONICLE June 19, 2005



By Rickey Singh
Minister Ralph Gonsalves of
St. Vincent and the Grena-
dines has blamed the
region's bureaucrats for
stealing the "power" that be-
longs to the heads of govern-
ment of the Caribbean Com-
He has called for an urgent
decision to "stop the slide" into
meetings of the Community
leaders being diminished into an
"administrative bureaucratic en-
terprise" to avoid further
"wasting of time".
- The claims by Gonsalves,
outlined in a lengthy letter
to CARICOM Secretary Gen-
eral, Edwin Carrington, have
provoked concerns among
some Community leaders with
one .of them deeming the
letter as reflecting "an unjusti-
fied attack on Carrington".
Another Prime Minister,
while .sharing some of
Gonsalves' views, thinks it "re-
grettable" that the Vincentian
Prime Minister should have
chosen to make them known in
the "tone he has done", and
ahead of next month's
CARICOM Summit in Castries,
St. Lucia.
Particularly, he

stressed, as there was already
"agreement in principle" to dis-
cuss changes in the format of
-Heads of Government confer-
Perhaps anticipating differ-
ences at the coming 26th
CARICOM Summit in Castries,
slated -for July 3-6, Gonsalves
told Carrington in his letter a
copy of which was obtained by
the Sunday Chronicle:
"I regret sincerely if I offend
anyone with these views, or the
robust language in which I have
expressed them".
But, he, said, he was
"pained that a great cause Car-
ibbean unity is not likely to
be served, as well as it ought to
be, if we continue on our cur-
rent path..."
Carrington, currently com-
pleting his third term as the
longest serving Secretary Gen-
eral of the now almost 32-year-
old Community, yesterday said
he would "prefer riot to offer
any comment to the media on
this matter".
However, it. was learnt that
Gonsalves' letter to Carrington,
would be one of the "new is-

Contending that the manner in
which the Community's business
was currently being conducted had
contributed to a "sense of alien-.
ation" among the people and "even
among political leaders", Prime
Minister Gonsalves drew a com-
parison with current developments
in the European Union, noting that:

are rebelling against a
bureaucratised integration enter-
prise. And CARICOM, as cur-
rently operated, has less popu-

For children of missinq men



THE daughter of one of the sugar workers who mysteriously
disappeared without a trace almost one month ago wishes her
father, wherever he is right now "a Happy Father's Day!"
In a touching display of emotion, the 25-year-old daughter of
Maikhram Sawh wrote a poem for her missing father on the occa-
sion of Father's day, which is being celebrated around the world
Monica Sawh wrote these few lines on a piece of paper:

"One of the most precious blessings in our lives
is to have you as our dear father
You were beside us when we first opened our
When we whispered our first words
When we took our first steps, and when we went
all those difficult tasks in our lives
It filled us with joy and pride to have a dad like
Today, all we want to say is how much you mean
to us
and that we love you
The 21st May is a day we will never forget
You left home and not even your shadow we can-
not find
God knows how much we love you and still
chose this path for us
if you are with him we pray that he keeps you
in his caring hands forever
and if you are on Earth still alive
we beg that we can hear your voice
and that we can hug and kiss you once again
Life can never be the same without you here dad
we love you, wherever you are "

THE CURSE of rogue cops is
disgracing the very over-
whelming rank and file decent
and hard working members of
police forces across our Carib-
bean Community.
How very serious and threatening this
plague is to maintenance of law and order
can be followed from the current dramatic
developments in Jamaica with the arrest and
questioning of about 22 policemen by yes-
terday for crimes involving narco-traffick-
ing, selling guns and stealing motor ve-
It must be quite agonising for Police
Commissioner Lucius Thomas and his se-
nior investigating colleagues to be engaged
in the flushing out of rogue elements of the

Jamaica Constabulary for what has been of-
ficially described as "major criminal activity".
The Association of Caribbean Commis-
sioners of Police (ACCP), among them
Guyana's Winston Felix, would be mindful
that involvement of cops, some at senior
and middle management level, in financial
corruption, narco-trafficking and gun-trad-
ing, are problems not just of Jamaica but in
jurisdictions across our Community.
Such cops not only embarrass, hurt their
colleagues and tarnish the reputation of an
entire police force. They undermine public
confidence in the integrity of law enforce-
ment and expose a society to tremendous
dangers from well-organised criminal net-
The working relationships established by
the rogue elements within the ranks of a po-
lice force often endanger the lives of col-
leagues when they.leak intelligence infor-
mation to the criminals and inform on
planned anti-crime police initiatives.
Proceeds from illicit drug deals play a
major factor in the corruption of cops and
other members of security forces within the
region today, a challenging problem also
being faced in some metropolitan centres of
rich and powerful states.
No attempt must be made to rationalise
criminal activity, of any sort, in Guyana and
other CARICOM states, by those who are
paid from the public purse to protect the

IN THE ongoing emotional
debates, across the Caribbean
Community, on judicial ex-
ecution for murder, has come
a proposal from Jamaica's At-
torney General and Minister
of Justice, A. J. Nicholson:
The member states of
suggests, should agree to either
legally abolish the death pen-
alty, or pursue a new policy,
based on constitutional amend-
ments, to ensure the enforce-
ment of execution of convicted



murderers within a specified
lime frame.
Having outlined ten steps
that are still constitutionally
available in Jamaica for con-
x icted killers seeking to avoid
the gallows by a series of ap-
peals. Nicholson found rather
positive the recent move by
Barbados to overcome rulings

by the Judicial Committee of
the Privy Council by
making mandatory implementa-
tion of the death penalty.
In a response to my last
week column on 'Hang Them
Politics' that pointed to the lack
of empirical evidence that the
death penalty is a deterrent to
murder, Mr. Nicholson assured:
"It was never my intention and
it remains so, to have these
issues enveloped in partisan
political circumstances".
Without coming down on
any side, legal abolition or
mandatory execution, what
seems particularly appealing
to him was the unity demon-
strated by the government and
parliamentary opposition in
Barbados to recently make
constitutionally mandatory
the death penalty for murder.
It was a course pursued
by his Barbadian counterpart,
Mia Mottley, as her govern-
ment was also finalising ar-
rangements to sever ties with
the Privy Council as Barba-
dos' final appellate court, and
to access the Caribbean Courl
of Justice as the country's lc-
- gal instilultion of last resort.
which it now is. along witlh
B\ contrast, in Jami aica,
where both the governing
People's National Party and the
parliamentary opposition Ja-
maica Labour Party favour cx-
ecution of convicted murderers.
there is no indication of support
from the opposition to emulate,
for example. the Barbados ini-
tiative for mandatory death

As Nicholson sees it, if Bar-
bados, with its comparatively
"few murder cases",
has found strictures imposed by
Privy Council rulings to be an
unnecessary burden that could
be removed by the mandatory
death penalty, then why such
cooperation cannot take place
elsewhere within CARICOM,
including Jamaica, between gov-
ernments and parliamentary op-
position parties.

Such an approach, he thinks,
would be helpful if those who
claim to favour the death pen-


ally cooperate in removing con-
stitutional strictures, instead of
constantly blaming govern-.
ments, accusing them. of

incompetence and other allega-
tions, when the execution
of death row prisoners fail to
occur with various appeals open
to them. including to the Privy
However, while his own
political opponents may con-
tinue to engage in rhetorical ex-
ercises to justify their lack of
cooperation, as suggested
by Attorney General Nicholson,
while commending Barbados'
approach for the mandatory
death penalty, he may not
find comfort in the position held
by learned member of the local/
regional legal fraternity and their
international allies.
They hold the view.c
is expressed at the re-
:ent international con-
lerence in Barbados on
lhe death penalty and
prison management,
ihat it is now beyond
dispute that "the mian-
datory death penalty is
in inl human and degrad-
ing/cruel and unusual
In a paper on The
S,"'- Mandatory Death Pen-
Illy, Sentencing and
Mercy The VWay Ilor-
anird', he authors sup-
portid their t N c\\ by
.:iling Ihitle unanii tous
position of nine law
Lords of the Piv\'y
Council ill the case of
'Matthew and Boyce
and Joseph'.
The law Lords, among
them Justices Bingham and
-I1offmnann, shared the view
in that case, that "a law

which denies a defendant the
opportunity. after convic-
tion, to seek to avoid impo-
sition of the ultimate pen-
alty. which he may not de-
serve, is incompatible with
the prohibition on inhuman
or degrading punishment be-
cause it fails to respect his
basic humanity..."'
The right to a fair trial
must involve recourse to
all available constitutional
avenues to a convicted
murderer to avoid the.
death sentence a process
which ends with some

s%\ singing on thile allows, or
life imprisonment.
It is understandable \why
families and friends of murder
victims would cry for the execu-
tion of all convicted killers. But
adherence to due process must
triumph in the interest ol sus-
.taining confidence in the crimi-
nal justice system. according to
human rights advocates.

Shall we be read when

by Koichiro Matsuura?

TWO thirds of humanity
today lives in coastal areas.
By 2030, this figure will reach
75 per cent.
Last December's tsunami
reminded us of how vulnerable
populations in these areas can
be. Will we be ready when the
next one strikes?
Almost six months later, an
interim tsunami warning system
is operating in the Indian Ocean
basin. UNESCO's
Oceanographic Commission
(IOC) has overseen the
installation or upgrading of tide
gauges, deep ocean pressure
sensors and seismic equipment
across the region. This
equipment is already
transmitting information about
climate, tide changes and other
scientific data at hourly intervals.
IOC teams have also been
sent to several Indian Ocean
countries to assess their needs
with a view to helping them set
up their national plans for
dealing with such disasters,
including public education
programmes, communications
and other vital infrastructure
such. as evacuation routes,
emergency accommodation and
medical facilities.
At the IOC Assembly at
UNESCO Headquarters later
this month (June 21-30). the
Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning
and Mitigation System will be
formally launched. However.
despite often difficult
negotiations and titanic efforts to
draw up a viable blueprint for
the system, this has been the
relatively easy part of the task.
UNESCO's ambition goes

beyond the Indian Ocean and
the Pacific region, where a
regional tsunami warning
system has been operating
under the aegis of UNESCO
sirice the 1960s. Rather, we are
working towards a worldwide
warning system, to protect
other tsunami-vulnerable
regions, such as the
Mediterranean, the Caribbean,
the South West Pacific and the
The challenges ahead are
legion. They can only be met
if we succeed in promoting a
worldwide culture of
anticipation-and prevention.
Setting up a detection and
warning system is not always
easy. It requires not only
material inputs, but also the
mobilisation of the countries
Many countries, for
example, take the view that
certain kinds of information -
such as seismic data and
underwater topographic maps
- belong to the realm of their
national security and
commercial interests. Yet
tsunamis know no boundaries
and an effective warning
system demands that vital
scientific data be made readily
available in real time.
Such a system also
requires long-term investment.
The IOC's experience in
the Pacific shows that
maintenance of a specialised
regional system often lapses
over time and disappears from
the list of government
priorities. In 2004, for
example, three of the six
seafloor pressure sensors in the
Pacific system were out of

the next tsunami strikes?

This is why UNESCO
advocates the creation of a
global ocean observation
system, covering the planet as
a whole and offering a whole
range of oceanographic services
to scientists, governments and
the private sector. These
services would include other
climate-related hazards such as
storm surges 'and cyclones,
which are much more frequent
than tsunamis and just as
deadly, as evidenced by the
500,000 deaths caused in
Bangladesh in 1970 and 1990.
Apart from the science and
technology, disaster prevention
also requires preparing people
at local level. They must be
educated and informed so as to
be alert to tsunamis and other
major hazards and to know
what to do in the event of a
warning being issued.
There is surely no better
illustration of this than the case
.of the young British girl who,
remembering what she had been
taught in a geography lesson on
tsunamis, was able to save the
lives of hundreds of people on
a beach in Thailand in the face

By Ruben Sili6
DURING the last quarter of
the twentieth century, vast
social movements were
.developed in Latin America
and the Caribbean, an
expression of the aspirations
for change that were
experienced in the most
exploited social sectors of
those societies. In sonic
sectors, the leading roles were
played by workers, in others,
religious groups or students,
but all revolving around the
social and economic demands
arising out of adjustment
policies within the Region.,
At that time,
dictatorships or authoritarian
governments still prevailed over
the truly democratic ones.
Nevertheless, it can be said that
those social battles led to a trail
of democratic governments, of
which we were all proud. That
state of democratic ideal,
however, was accredited as such
by the fact that free elections
were held.
It can be said that
the changes occurring in most
countries regarding the conflict
situations that preceded the
democratic governments, were
due to the fact that the national
forces (internal) agreed to a
negotiation process that
culminated in the organisation of
electoral processes. It is
necessary to reflect on this
since, in some instances, that
process led to the collapse of a
dictatorship, as in the case of
Haiti, while governmental
repression was brought to an end
in others like Brazil,-or an armed
movement was halted, as in
Central America. However, they
all agreed to take steps to
promote democracy together

case, the population is

In short, the region is once
again in turmoil.
It all seems to
indicate that we are staying
behind in compliance with
agreements, so instead of
prioritising mechanisms for
control or intervention in
defence of democracy, the
priority action would be to

189 world leaders who met in

tackle global development
challenges, this was no utopian
vision. On the contrary, they
felt it was an achievable vision
when they adopted eight time-
bound and measurable
Millennium Development Goals
(MDGs) reflecting the vision.
However, to say that the
MDGs can be achieved is not
to say that governments alone
can undertake the mammoth
task. It has been recognized that
all actors in society have a role
to play, including the private

In this regard, a very
interesting question has long
been on the minds of many
people in Guyana, and indeed in
the Caribbean and around the
world: how can the profit-driven
interests of businesses be
compatible with sustainable
human development and
poverty reduction?
It is this question that
has prompted the United
Nations Development
Programme (UNDP) in Guyana
'to collaborate with the
Government of Guyana and the
Private Sector Commission and
host the Caribbean -MDG
Business Initiative 2005, which
will take place on Thursday and
Friday (June 23-24) at Le
Meridien Pegasus.
Two interrelated
themes are at the heart of the
Initiative. The first is to explore
business practices that
companies can engage in to help
achieve the MDGs while
maintaining a profit orientation.
The second theme is to explore
how partnerships of various
kinds can help to promote such
business practices.
At a basic level.
businesses can contribute
towards the achievement of the
MDGs by creating jobs for the
poor and by paying taxes to
governments that can
subsequently redistribute the

wealth. However, there is now
a growing recognition that the
private sector is also a powerful
force for development when
-companies engage in what might
be called development-oriented
business practices (DOBPs):
business practices that meet the
dual criteria of being profitable
and helping achieve the MDGs.
DOBPs are not about making
more-or-less random donations
to various organizations, but
rather they are about
establishing a profitable link
between the core business and
sustainable human development
and can be divided into nine
overall categories:
Invest in human resource
management (HRM) practices

empowered workforce with
equal opportunities for men and

Monitor and report on

This brings us to the
question of partnerships the
second theme of the upcoming
Initiative. DOBPs can be
pursued at the level of the
individual business. but they can
also be promoted in
partnerships with various
entities. In the past articles of
this series, we have seen some
cases that illustrate the value of
partnerships very clearly. One
example is the case of DDL/
Topco that has partnered with
IPED and small farmers to
create a positive economic cycle
benefiting all parties. Another.
example is the case of the
partnership involving Amcar,
which allows for rural and
marginalised communities to
become economically
empowered while contributing
to the company's bottom line.
Around the world there
are companies that have
partnered with civil society
entities to gain access to poor
rural markets. There are also
companies that have partnered
with government institutions to
get market guarantees for
products that will help the

poor. The list continues and
there are surely many other
opportunities for partnerships
we are not yet aware of.
One of the aims of this
upcoming Caribbean MDG
Business Initiative 2005 on
Thursday and Friday is to
facilit-ate the exchange of
experiences between actors that
have engaged in various forms
of partnerships, in the hope
that alternative and innovative
partnership formations may be
conceived and nurtured as
DOBPs are promoted and the
MDGs pursued in the
Caribbean. To this end, the
Initiative will involve the local
and regional (and in some cases
wider international)
participation of individual
businesses and business
associations, government
representatives, civil society
entities and U.N. agencies.

focus on DOBPs and
partnerships to achieve the
MDGs, the event will also

Caribbean, but the analysis of the
data obtained also provided
information concerning the
increasing participation in higher
education in detail for several
nations of the Anglophone
Caribbean (comprising'17 islands
or territories) in both public and
private institutions.
It found a prevalence of
female participation, which has
increased in the past two
decades, especially in Barbados,
Jamaica and The Bahamas, with
the exceptions of areas of study
such as technology and
engineering, dominated by males.
The pattern is evident at the
College of the Bahamas,
Barbados Community College
and Northern Caribbean
Other data gathered in
this report indicates the
preponderance of Bahamians
studying in U.S. institutions that
the authors connect with
different facts like: proximity,
availability of scholarships from
government and private sources,
affordability, heavy recruitment
of U.S. higher education
institutions seeking to attract
Bahamian students, the lack of a
University of West Indies (UWI)
campus, and the lack of
opportunities for students to

pursue Bachelor Degree studies
at home.
In this regard, the
authors posed several questions:
"why Bahamian students are
under-represented in the
majority of its programmes at
Mona (Jamaica), Barbados and
St. Augustine (Trinidad)
campuses? Are Bahamians
students being 'pulled toward'i
the north, or 'pushed away' from
the south?"
Regarding gender, the
data throws that, regardless of
the fact that more women attain
higher education, not necessarily
the same happens with getting a
"There may be several
reasons for this. One reason
could be that when competing
for the same job, males are most.
likely to be hired. Another
reason could be that more
females than males are likely to
defer and or interrupt their
careers in order to raise a family.
And still another reason could
be that jobs, which require
qualifications in male dominated
areas and fields of study, might
be more plentiful," the study
But given the fact that
most men have lucrative jobs in
the entertainment area, the

authors ask whether it is
necessary to endeavour in higher
education studies or whether
, male education is valued in the
Anglophone Caribbean societies.
Nevertheless, it is difficult to
generalise since there are
differences among Anglophone
Caribbean nations and
For instance, there are
more women than men in the
labour force in the Bahamas than
in Trinidad and Tobago and
Barbados. On the other hand, the
ratio of employed persons with-
tertiary education by gender is
greater in St. Lucia, followed by
the Bahamas, Barbados and
Trinidad and Tobago.
According to
Chipman-Johnson and
Vanderpool, it is necessary to
point to the lack of data
collected by surveys that can
provide information on
salaries as an impediment to
the elaboration of a
quantitative analysis on
economic and social rates of
return to higher education, as
well as studies that would
. address attitudes and
perceptions of males toward
higher education in order to

Trinidad firm warned on East Bank highway project

THE Trinidad firm
building the four-
lane highway on the
East Bank Demerara
has been warned about
meeting deadlines on
the project, the Gov-
ernment Information
Agency (GINA) has re-
It said that if the US$16M
project is not completed on the
agreed date, the contractor will
be penalised in accordance with
the contract.
In a release Thursday night,
the agency said Minister of Pub-
lic Works and Communication,
Anthony Xavier has expressed
dissatisfaction over the pace of
work on the highway.
GINA said the Minister
observed that works had been
progressing smoothly but.
within the past two weeks,
there seems to have been some
amount of delay, which
prompted., a meeting with the
contractor,-Seereeram Broth-
ers Limited.
The contractor said he
was experiencing some diffi-
culty with the unavailability
of stones but noted that a
shipment was. expected to be
supplied two days ago so that
works could recommence, the
agency reported.;

According to GINA, Xavier
said the contractor was urged to
restart work with a view to en-
suring the progressive comple-
tion of the project as quickly as
possible to ease the inconve-
nience to commuters and motor-
He noted that the Minis-
try would continue to moni-
tor the work and if the project
is not completed on the
agreed date, the contractor
will be penalised in accordance
with the contract.
The project is being ex-
ecuted in two phases. Phase
One entails construction of
the four-lane highway, valued
at US$10.6 million, while
Phase Two covers the con-
struction of the West Bank
Demerara road valued at
US$5.4 million, from
Schoonord (Demerara
Harbour Bridge) to Vreed-en-
Hoop intersection.
Under Phase Two, the con-
struction of 270 metres roadway
at Goed Fortuin will also be-ad-
dressed. To date, half of the road-
way work has been completed
and the contractor is working on
the latter part.
This newspaper understands
that the Trinidad firm is unable
to meet this month's completion
deadline and has sought an ex-
Special Advisor to the
Minister of Public Works and

Communications and Project
Consultant for the East Bank
Highway. Mr Walter Willis,
told this newspaper a month
ago that Secrecram Brothers
Limited has advised that it'
cannot complete the project
by the contractual June dead-
line due to the recent inclem-
ent weather, inadequate sup-
ply of materials and break-
downs of critical pieces of
Willis said the company was
seeking a six-month extension
but local officials were against
such a long delay.
According to him,
Seereeram Brothers has re-
quested a six-month exten-
sion of its contract with ef-
fect from May 9 but this was
not favoured by the Ministry
and its consultants.
"The Ministry and the con-
sultants are not in agreement
with this six-month extension
that the contractor is asking for.
However, we are currently in the
process of sitting.down with the
contractor to discuss this re-
quested extension," Willis had
told the Guyana Chronicle on
May 12.
Work on the four-lane high-
way commenced in the latter
part of 2003.
The highway project is
funded jointly by the Carib-
bean Development Bank and
the Government of Guyana.

Fifteen more graduate from

another EMPRETEC course

EMPRETEC, a 2003 gov
erminent initiative to ad-
dress constraints facing small
and medium private enter-
prises, has graduated 15 more
such persons from a two-week
entrepreneurship training
Their graduation, at Hotel
Tower in Main Street,
Georgetown, yesterday, fol-
lowed a course, started June 6,
with the aim of enabling partici-
pants to improve day-to-day

operations of their respective
businesses and help them be-
come more competitive.
Executive Director of
Semple-Joseph said the just
completed workshop is a hall-
mark in that it was the first of
eight to be administered by lo-
cal facilitators.
She said the participants
showed commitment by their
punctual attendance daily, al-
though it took them away from

their businesses.
According to her, many
others did not participate be-
cause they could not find the
time and the strict requirements.
The graduates were Renata

Francine Dickie, Ibi Mina

mas, Winston Headley, Sabine

Minister of Tourism, Indus-
try and Commerce, Mr
Manzoor Nadir, who gave the
feature address at the function,
charged the group to heed the
messages imparted at the semi-
nar and pledged the
government's continued sup-
port to EMPRETEC and the
targeted business persons.
He said small and medium
enterprises (SMEs) contribute



60 per cent of value-added in-
come in Guyana and urged the
conduct of more training and in-
centive programmes.
Nadir said, although the
government fully supports
EMPRETEC, it has no objec-
tion to private sector collabora-
tion and encouraged the adop-
tion of good promotional skills,
business ethics, financial man-
agement and quality products in
a world becoming more com-
petitive with informed consum-
He advised the enterprising
batch to pay attention to what
they produce because they are
in direct contact with the prod-
uct and consumers.
"This is a good chance for
success if you are devoted

and, if you invest resources,
not only financial. You have
been able to be part of the
EMPRETEC family and you
have demonstrated tremen-
dous sacrifice and these are
two important assets," Nadir
He acknowledged the need
for more such courses and noted
that the sessions would have
served to expand the knowledge
of those who took part and al-
lowed them to develop new
skills for more successful busi-
ness operations.
Nadir announced that the
government is planning to
put out a small business di-
rectory and undertake more
trade promotions. (RENU

GUYANA is fully committed
to modernising the sugar
industry as fast as possible
but wants the proposed
changes in the European
Union's pricing regime to be
managed in a manner in
which CARICOM economies
can cope.
"We recognize that there will
be changes to the European
Union preferential regime. All we
seek is that the change in pref-
erences is managed the reduc-
tion in prices cannot be so steep
and the transition period so
short that CARICOM econo-
mies are unable to cope, and
there must be arrangements in
place to help us through the dif-
ficult transition period," Presi-

dent Bharrat Jagdeo said Friday
Speaking at a reception at
the Police Officers' Mess, Eve
Leary, to mark the Queen's an-
niversary. the President stressed
* that "we seek consistent trade
policies, particularly in relation
to the sugar industry."
The European Union is to
make proposals on changes to
the sugar pricing regime this
week- Local stakeholders have
vociferously protested the pro-
posed changes, and have charged
price cuts will sound an eco-
nomic death threat for sugar pro-
ducing countries of the Carib-
bean region.
-"If the proposals are as se-
vere as the leaks suggest, the
impact on the Guyanese

economy will be in excess of
US$40 million per annum -
that's about four times as
much as Guyana will receive
in extra debt relief following
last week's announcement. An
equivalent economic shock in
the UK would be if every
single financial services insti-
tution in the UK were to shut
down within two years," the
President told the gathering
at the function.
Referring specifically to the
historic debt deal,the Group of
Eight countries struck two Sat-
urdays ago that wiped out the
debt of many poor nations in-
cluding Guyana, President
Jagdeo lauded the "progressive
leadership" of British Prime
Minister Tony Blair and Chan-

cellor of the Exchequer, Mr.
Gordon Brown, and thanked the
thousands of British people who
campaigned for debt relief, trade -
justice and better aid.
However, he pointed out
that the international commu-
nity should do more to build
on progress made so far, and
"right some of the wrongs of
the past." He expressed the
hope that the .developed
world will agree to the UK
proposal to double develop-
ment assistance, and wel-
comed the EU's decision to
double the aid its members

The Guyanese leader also
called for details of the debt re-
lief deal in the face of "disturb-
ing rumours" from the Interna-
tional Financial Institutions.
"The deal is a good one for
the world, and in particular Af-
rica. But for Guyana where the
deal does not yet encompass our
biggest creditor, the IDB the
outcomes are not so clear. There
are disturbing rumours emanat-
ing from the International Finan-
cial Institutions. However, we
hope that these institutions will
pay heed to Gordon Brown's in-
vocation to think big and to re-
ject timidity and the cancellation
would take effect almost imme-
"This deal should be about
helping our economy to grow,
and about investing in poverty
reduction; it should not be used
by the IFIs as an opportunity to
impose yet further artificial fis-
cal and other.restrictions," the
President said.
According to the Govern-
ment Information Agency
(GINA), on Friday, the IDB
(Inter-American Development
Bank) Representative here,.

Sergio Varas Olea said this
would be an opportune time
for Guyana to request further
debt-relief as such an initia-
tive would be "interesting and
"I was informed by the
President (President Jagdeo)
that he is planning to request
this .formally and we'd be
happy to see more relief of
the debt of uyana happening,"
he said.
He however pointed out that
such a decision has to be taken
by the shareholders of the Bank
in which the G-8 group is rep-
"'That's a positive window
of opportunity for Guyana to do
this, but there are also other
members that have to express
their opinion, so we'll see, I
hope, soon, what is the reaction
of the institution to do this and
we're very keen on seeing this
process happening to have a re-
sponse soon," Olea said.
The Guyanese leader said
he looks forward to the day
when "we can talk of debt re-
lief, trade justice and devel-
opment assistance as historic
"I look forward to -the
speeches and functions like this
being about successful British
companies active in Guyana, and
successful Guyanese enterprises
in the UK. I look forward to
hearing about British students
studying in Guyana, -and British
tourists appreciating our
country. Above all, I look
forward to hearing about
Guyana's full achievement
of the democratic economic
and social goals we speak
of as ambitions today.
These will be the
hallmarks that the work we
pursue today has delivered
the results we all want to
see," the President said.

' ,_ -' -' .

PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo on Friday announced that his ad-
ministration will ask the United Kingdom (UK) and other "in-
ternational friends" to help Guyana "complete a peaceful and
successful electoral process" in the next general elections.
He said so at a reception hosted at the Police Officers Mess,
Eve Leary to mark the birth anniversary of Her Majiesty Queen Eliza-
beth 11
The President gave the assurance that the elections will be held
before the constitutionally.due date, and stressed that they must be
free and fair.
"The duty of all individuals and organizations who want to see
this happen is to cooperate with the Elections Commission to allow
them to make the necessary preparations," he added.
President Jagdeo declared that the international community must
play a strong supporting role, and must not shy away-from criticising
those who seek to damage the electoral process, or who wish to in-
vent excuses to stop people from exercising their democratic rights.
Our people wish to see a fair fight where issues that matter to
them are discussed; they do not want to hear the jaded arguments of
those who are afraid of political debate. I relish the opportunity to
. defend mn government's record, and will engage with anyone who is
senous about strenetbening our democracy
He also noted that the UK's support for Guyana's bi-
lateral programme will continue to help in the years ahead POL
with the country's economic growth, job creation and pov- Osc
erty alleviation. ,M

carried DCC to victory in the

of the highest quality

(Sports View by Neil Kumar)

SEVERAL National
Sports Associations
are delinquent. As a re-
sult, the General Sec-
retary of the Guyana
Olympic Association,
Mr Ivor O'Brien was
forced to make strong
statements -against
them at the Guyana
Olympic Association
Awards Ceremony re-
Mr O'Brien said.that one
National Sports Association
only responds to invitation to
social activities while there is
another National Sports Asso-
ciation which.does not respond
to any correspondence from the
Guyana Olympic Association.
It- is sad to learn that the
Guyana Amateur Basketball
Federation is accused of having
bad governance. Recently the
Georgetown Amateur Basketball
Association moved a resolution
refusing to recognize the valid-
ity of the GABF Elections held
earlier this year.

The Georgetown Amateur
Basketball Association said that
there were no guidelines set out
- for the conduct of the elections.
Further, there were no agenda,
reports, financial statements or
otherwise of activities planned
over a period of seven years and
a constitution that is severely
flawed. The allegations made
against this National Association
are serious.
Our young basketball play-
ers were yearning to compete in
the 2005 Junior Caribbean Bas-
ketball Championships. These
youths were training thoroughly
and they were fully motivated
to win the Championships.
However, the youths were
denied the opportunity be-
cause GABF owed a substan-
'tial amount of fees to the
Caribbean Basketball Con-
It is most opportune for us
to call on this Association to put
itself in order in the interest of
our poor children who are highly
talented basketball players, fans
and supporters.
Seven years without holding
any elections and no accountability
is bad. However, after seven years
of none functioning and then cata-

pult yourself into the leadership
again is testimony to the fact that
all some people want is position
at all cost.
In the interest of transpar-
ency, accountability and good
governance, let's get on with the
work in the interest of the
Guyana Amateur Basketball
The Guyana Cycling
Federation is in the habit of
changing its leadership like little
children changing clothes. The
present leadership of the cy-
cling Federation seems to have
some interest in the further de-
velopment of cycling.
Amateur Boxing: the
Guyana Amateur Boxing Asso-
ciation abandoned our boxers a
few months ago when they
were scheduled to fight in Bar-
bados. Genuine effort to speak
to the then secretary of the as-
sociation failed. At that time the
then president of the GABA
was out of the country.
It was indeed a wet blanket
where all efforts by Govern-
ment officials failed to have an
audience with the then secretary
who left us with the impression
that his doing was enough for
him not to face the harsh real-

ity. However, thanks to the
Minister of Culture, Youth and
Sports Ms Gail Teixeira and the
National Sports Commission,
the boxers went to Barbados
and they were successful.
Some people are masters
when it comes to telling half-
truths and they have indeed
graduated when they are strang-
ers to the truths.
My investigations revealed
that there was little or no at-
tempt to facilitate Guyana's
participation at this year's Car-
ibbean Amateur Boxing Cham-
pionships which is presently
under way in St Thomas US
Virgin Islands. My few impor-
tant questions are;
This is an annual event.
a. When preparation
started for'Guyana's participa-
" tion?
b. What funds were
c. What contact was
made with the NSC or the Min-
istry and when?
d. .What effort was made
to get United States visas for the
boxers? Was any ever made?
e. Should the public,
spectators, supporters and

sponsors accept the 'CON' that
was in the newspapers during
the last week?
Sponsors, corporate citi-
zens and people, who are
supposed to help in the de-
velopment of this discipline,,
will do so with good gover-
Come on 'Laurie', you could
do it. Now make the changes,
clean out the weeds and let the
good seeds grow.
Table Tennis: The Table
Tennis Association is also in the
habit of changing its leadership
regularly. However, the Guyana
Table Tennis Association is
guilty of making the secretary
the president and then claiming
that the records are missing. It
is imperative that this Associa-
tion come clean in the interest
of our kids who are playing ten-
nis in this country. Again there
are parents and prominent per-
sonalities who are willing to give
their support to this sport dis-
Guyana Lawn Tennis As-
sociation: Honourable men
such as Dr Makepeace Rich-
mond, Dr Steve Surujballi and
others tried without success.
May God help the Guyana
Lawn Tennis Association!

up. So you'd consider yourself
to be taking a fairly holistic ap-
.proach to your beauty routine
wouldn't you?

But have you considered
adopting a.more natural ap-
proach to skin care? Embracing
a natural beauty routine may be
one of the best decisions you
can make for your body. Nature
is filled with wonderful healing
ingredients that can be utilised
to soothe, heal and enhance your
natural beauty.

We spend billions every
year on cosmetics, including
make-up, moisturisers, cleansers
and face masks. When we buy
a beauty product, the last thing
we're paying for are the
contents of the jar. We are
actually shelling out for tax,
duty, packaging, advertising,
marketing and even for the
service we are receiving when
buying it. Considering that thee
majority of products we
purchase tend to gather dust on
he bathroom shelf, or are
-discarded the moment .another
"miracle" product is released,
perhaps its time to look at a
more natural and yes cheaper

Look at the many beauty
products available today: most
have a fruit extract included
somewhere in their ingredients
list. It seems that the commer-
cial world has finally woken up
to the healing powers of fruits.
Owing to their various ingredi-
ents, fruits can be used to
moisturise, nourish and heal
specific skin conditions, as well
as being incorporated into a
daily beauty routine. Some
fruits have astringent qualities,
healing to exfoliate and renew
dead skin cells. Others have a
nurturing and calming influence
on skin conditions such as acne,
spots, injuries and scars. When
using fruits as part of your
beauty treatment, find the fresh-
est available and, if possible,
choose organic products.

Vegetables, too, are an ideal
ingredient to include in natural
treatments, as they have an anti-
inflammatory effect on damaged
inflamed and sensitive
skin. Most vegetables contain
vitamin A, which is required by
the skin, and in particular the
surface layer (epidermis) for

ry Bollers-Dixon

healing purposes. Vegetable
masks and treatments tend to
work quite quickly and are
therefore an excellent tonic for
sunburned skin, allergic reac-

tions, eczema or outbreaks ot

The basic items you'll need
for a natural beauty routine are
Mixing bowl made of plas-
tic or glass (metal bowls oxid, se
when they come into contact
with fruit or vegetable juices).
Storage jars made of plastic
or glass.
Natural beauty products
should be stored in the refrig-
erator, unless specified.
Recipes containing eggs or
milk should be kept no longer
than six hours.
Cotton wool balls or cleans-
ing before and after a treatment
Hair band use the fabric
kind to keep your hair away
from your face.

The following are ideal in-
gredients for natural beauty
Bathing salts, which contain
magnesium to help heal stresses
and strains. Always keep a sup-
ply in your bathroom.
Chamomile teabags for cool-
ing tired eyes and calming in-
flamed or sensitive skin.
Cucumber is an excellent
base for use as a toner or lotion.
Eggs are nourishing and add
thickness to a recipe, making it
easier to apply.
Honey is used in masks as
a healing aid and to bind ingre-

than a confident, well-groomed

By Faizool Deo

ODAY, as Guyana
joins the rest of the
world to celebrate
Father's Day, one
spotlight on men and
fathers in an attempt to
identify the traits they must
possess to adequately fulfil
their duties and mold
humble, but authoritative
figures in the home and
Members of the
organisation, the Beacons Min-
istry under Rt. Rev. Dr Philbert
London, have taken it upon
themselves to preach the word
of "man", meaning instilling the
suitable values into the many
men in our society who have
somehow lost their way.
On Thursday and Friday
last, London held a very inter-
active session, titled the 'Man
Hood Train', where he dealt
with issues that opened .the
eyes of men to a number of
topics ranging from how to
recognize a good wife, a man's
position in his family, his pur-
pose in his family's life, and sex.
The Pastor noted at the
seminar held at Le Meridien Pe-
gasus that a man's worth is mea-
sured by his stage of develop-
ment and regard for responsibili-
He said that since there
were no institutes to train boys
into becoming men, most adults,

even though fully grown, fail to
show the characteristics of man-
A man, according to him, is
a person who is able to provide,
protect and produce for his
_home andfamiLy.vHaented_that-
nfidly adult males are following
the wrong role models and gath-
ering their information from in-
appropriate places.
The Bishop pointed out
that men abuse themselves by
not knowing their purpose, and
added that the time has come for
the men of Guyana to rise up
and take their position as head
of their family to produce
strong and cultured leaders for
tomorrow's generation.
In reference to a good wife,
London looked at 10 qualities
that a woman should possess to
be regarded as a good wife.
The first, he stated is that
of respect. "Most times as
young men, our first interest
in a woman is sexual or
physical and we don't even
stop to consider them down
the road, and it ends up hurt-
ing us." London said that a
little test that a man can try
is to assess the way his in-
tended spouse interacts with
the male individuals in her
life (father and brothers,
The second point he stated
was that of the spouse 'obey-
ing their mate.' He pointed out
that if a woman is always reluc-
tant to listen to you before mar-
riage, then there it is likely that

she will not listen to you dur-
ing marriage.
The Pastor's third point in
choosing a wife was that of her
understanding of the man's vi-
sion and her willingness to sup-
pnrt it Othbr-po-*i~.e- *rtto- a
woman should display are dili-
gence and industriousness. He
noted this can be achieved by
assessing her lifestyle, her
spending abilities and her gen-
eral disposition.
London also related to the
woman's baggage from her pre-
vious relationship, pointing out
that it is necessary to review the
woman since she may be psy-
chologically affected, or still
emotionally attached to the ex.
London also stressed that a
man should assess a woman as
a means of visualising "what she
may look like in years to
come". A keen point is that of
her health, and London feels
that it is important for her to be
healthy so that the marriage can
be a lengthy one.
The eighth point, accord-

ing to Dr. London, is that of
analysing what others think
about her. He stated that a
good approach could be to ask
female relatives or persons
who have no agenda and can
-b.- rwqed-t o<- gi.o-aw--bonct-
opinion, to spend a day with
her to assess her traits.
Number nine according to
the Pastor is one of the most
important: her value standards.
He said that it is important to
assess her values since those
might also be adapted by your
children. Stressing that it is im-
portant to assess the way that
she dresses, if she curses
(swears), all round attitude not
only to you, but also to other
persons in her life.
Finally, London pointed out
that it is extremely important to
share the same faith (religious
belief) in a relationship. He
noted that whenever conflicts
arise in the relationship, both
parties would be able to look in
one direction for reconciliation.
Since, according to London,

there is a vacuum for manhood
training in Guyana, his Minis-
try has decided to open a
school which will welcome .
youths from all walks of life.
He said that he is hoping to

year, most likely for the start it
will also be housed at the Ocean
View Hotel.
In an effort to show appre-
ciation to fathers, London de-
clared June 12 to today
'Father's Week' and the Minis-
try held a number of events for
fathers including a pampering
session which was held on
Wednesday last.
About 21 men, including a
few from the manhood train,
were pampered and primped.
They were treated to pedicures,
manicures and facials from the

Cosmetology Section of the
Beacons Ministry in the Ocean
View Hotel.
The Events Planner of the
Organisation, Mr. Joseph Bur-
row told the Chronicle that the
Ministry thought iFbest to treat
the fathers to this pampering
because fathers must also feel
"One of the important
things that we have noticed is
that a lot of emphasis is be-
ing place on mothers, and fa-
thers, even though some may
be delinquent, normally take
a back seat. Under the guid-
ance of Pastor London, we are
hoping to change the per-
spective on fathers, and hope-
fully this too will assist them
in performing their duties
better," Burrow said.

before dental treatment.
In societies where it is
common for patients to
request having their dental
treatment done under general
anesthesia, there is greater
need to carry out medical
examination. It should be
noted that despite the fact
that dental fear and anxiety is
totally eliminated because the
patient is asleep during the
dental procedures, the
serious medical risk involved
when general anesthesia is
induced should be a concern.
This author is of the opinion
that dental fear and anxiety
are not sufficient
justification for the use of
general anesthesia.
The basic reason why it
is so important for a medical
assessment to be done on a
p atn-t. SeeMki mental_
treatment is because many
dental procedures can impact
negatively on the patient's
well being when certain
medical conditions exists. In
this country, because it is not
usual for a patient to sue a
dentist for malpractice or
professional negligence,
dentists generally disregard
their duty to adequately
screen their patients. This
being the unfortunate reality,
patients themselves do their
own screening.

From page II
thit two out of three people claimed to be stressed, citing work, home life, finances or family
as factors.
-Short-term stress can be good for you, sharpening your mental abilities and observational skills. But
in the .long-term, stress, blood pressure, an impaired immune system, lack of libido, can cause many
people to skip meals and binge eat. Certain foods that you may consume can actually put your body
under chemical stress. Similarly, if your diet is unbalanced you may be stressing your body by depriv-
ing it of essential nutrients. Eating too much over long periods leads to weight gain, which reduces
stamina and puts the heart, lungs and other organs under stress.
The following foods can increase stress in your body:
Caffeine this is a stimulant One reason you probably drink it is to raise your level of arousal
(i.e. stress). If you are drinking. too many cups of coffee a day, reduce your stress by switching to
decaffeinated kinds (or alternative drinks, such as fruit juices).
Alcohol in small amounts this may help you relax. In larger amounts it can disrupt sleep (and
cause hangovers) and increase stress. Over the long-term, excess alcohol damages your body. 0 N P R Q
Nicotine in the very short-term this may relax you, too, but its toxic effects raise the heart rate
and stress the body (as well as causing numerous other ill effects). If you smoke, take your pulse
before and after a cigarette, and notice the difference. II -

Sugar rich foods can raise short-term energy levels. But the body copes with excess sugar by se-
creting more insulin, which reduces the amount of sugar n the blood. This extra insulin can persist and
continue acting even after it has normalised blood sugar levels, causing an energy dip.
By eating a well-balanced diet you can minimise the effects'of stress on your health. In
particular, vitamin C helps control the release of the stress hormones adrenalin and cortisol
in the body. Good sources of this vitamin include oranges, peppers, papaya, cabbage, kiwi fruit,
broccoli and cauliflower. B-complex vitamins found in bananas, wholemeal bread, beans, eggs
and dairy products also help balance stress levels.

quit on the count for larceny.
I The Court of Appeal held
that without an express direc-
tion from the Judge as to cor-
roboration of the accomplice in
relation to the count for receiv-

uig, the jury was likely to havt
understood the Judge to bc

orge Barclay

directing them that the witness
who corroborated the accom-
plice on the count for larcen)
also corroborated him on the
count for receiving. As there
was no such express guidance
this amounted to a misdirection
the Appellate Court found.
During the Police investiga-
tons, each accused made a state-

ment. The statement of one ac-
cused implicated the appellant
who was told of it and in his
own statement denied the alle-
gations. The Police asked the
accused who made the implicat-
ing statement to repeat what he

had said in the presence of the
appellant. This v. as done and
the appellant remainedisilent.
The trial Judge also directed
the jury that a statement'made
by one accused in the absence
of the other was not evidence
against the other, but omitted to
direct them regarding a!state-
ment made in another's pres-
According to the Appellate
Court, a statement made by one
accused in the presence of an-
other accused' is evidence
against the other if, by his words
or conduct, he acknowledges the
truth of the statement.
As the appellant had previ-
ously denied the truth of the
statement, the jury should have
been specifically told that in the
circumstances of this case, the
damaging statement by the one
accused in the presence of the
other was not evidence against
the other.
It was submitted that this
was a fit case for the applica-

tion of'the proviso to Section 6
of the Criminal Appeal Ordi-
nance, 1950. .
However,. the Appellate
Court held that the damaging
statement may have influenced
the jury 'to bl'!6ieve the"
accomplice's evidence and the
one witness iWho corroborated
him, and the profits could not
be applied asit could notee.
said that despite the 'ttisdixiec-
don, the jury, acting, reasonably,'
would inevitably have arrived at
the same verdict.
At the .Demerara Criminal
Assizes, the appellant was con-
victed of receiving jewellery

Meadow Bank, East Bank
Demerara, with the knowl-
edge that they were stolen.
The indictment contained
two counts. In the first count,.
the appellant,: jointly with
Compton Braithwaite, was
charged with breaking and enter-
ing the pawnbrokery on June
26, 1952 and stealing therefrom
several' articles of jewellery. Ed-
Sward Persaud, the Manager of'
the pawnbiokery was charged
inthe same count.with being an
accessory before the fact.
The jury returned a verdict
of 'Not Guilty' in favour of all
who were charged ,on this count.
But on'the second. count which
charged the appellant together
with' ComptoniBraithwaite and'
another man called Jaikaran
Singh, with receiving some of
the stlen articles, the appellant
as well as Braithwaite and Singh
were found "'Guilty' and appel-
lant; Braithwaite and Singh were
sentenced each to a term of pe-
According to Justice
Boland: "There are only two
grounds of appeal amongst those
lodged by the appellant and ar-
* gued by Counsel at the hearing
before us- which, in our view,
merit consideration by the
S "Each, ofithese grounds is
based on alleged vital defects in
the. summing-up b3 the learned
trial Judge b% which it is
claimed,.the jury were misled to.
the prejudice of the appellant.
The first relates to passages in

the summing-up which deal'
with the corroboration of the
evidence of the prosecution wit-
ness Da Silva who, on his own
-admission was an accomplice.
."The second concerns the
Judge's directions to the jury as
affecting the: appellant in regard
to a statement made to the Po-
lice by the co-accused Singh in
the presence of the appellant".
The prosecution's case was
that Persaud himself was, a party
to the arrangement to have the
false telegram sent to him.
Da Silva described how af-
ter sending the telegram he went
with Braithwaite to Meadow
Bank. .
By arrangement between
them, the,two men went to
the appellant's house which,
was not far 'from and within
view of the pawnbrokery, but
Braithwaite, who was at the
time an employee of the
Spawnbrokery, went to the,
pawnbrokery and gave an
agreed signal to let appellant
and Da Silya know that
Persaud,. the Manager, had
left the premises after receipt
of the telegram.
Da Silva went on to relate'
that after the signal was. given
him in keeping with the arrange-
ment between them, he went.
over to the pawnbrokery and
received the suitcase, from
Braithwaite and that following
the appellant's instructions he
rode along on his bicycle taking
the suitcase froin him.
Afterwards, the appellant
rode ahead of him. They dis-
mounted and together went into

a path leading to the koker and
then, by direction of the appel-
lant, he handed the suitcase to
the accused Singh who went
with it towards the koker.
: On July 1, the Police, in the
course of their investigations,
went to. Singh's house near the
Houston Koker and Singh.dug
up a suitcase which was identi-
fied by Da Silva as: the one
which the 'Vpellant had handed
to Singh at. the koker path on
-June: 26. That suitcase was
found to contain\the articles of
jewellery which were the sub-
ject of the receiving charge..
Justice Bolahd 'said that .it
was clear that the facts deposed
by Da Sila olId, .if accepted -
by the jury, be sufficient in law
to support a finding that the ap-
pellant was a guilty receiver of
the jewellery found in the suit-
But according to him, as
Da Silva was an accomplice, '
that would be a subject to a
warning to the jury by the
Judge, in keeping with What
is' now well established in
law, that though they could
accept the corroborated evi-
dence of Da Silva, it would be
unsafe to convict.
Justice Boland added:
"What we feel is that without
an express direction from the
Judge and there was none -
the jury were likely to have
understood the Judge to be
directing them that the evi-
dence,- not only of Ruby Th-
ompson, but that of Patrick
Innis as well could be con-
sidered as against the appel-

lant to be corroborative of Da
Silva's evidence when Da:
Silva speaks of the part taken
by appellant in the delivery of
the (suitcase) to Singh.
"We consider that it may
very well be that the erroneous
notion that they might accept
as corroboration of Da Silva the
evidence given by both Thomp-
son and Inniss materially, con-
tributed to the jury returning a
verdict of guilty against the ,ap-
pellant on the charge of receiv-
ing the jewellery found in that
"Accordingly we hold this
omission of the Judge to direct'
the jury on the point was tan-
tamount to a misdirection and
we regard it as such.
The appeal is allowed and
the conviction and sentences
are set aside.

ment. When you write, avoid sentence fragments
in what you say.
Note: A sentence fragment or non-sentence is re-
ally an error that occurs when an incomplete sen-
tence is punctuated as if it were complete.
There are three things you should look for when
reviewing your work for sentence fragments.

1. First, look for a group of words without a
2. Next, be alert for a group lacking a verb, es-
pecially a group that contains a verbal rather
than a complete verb.
3. Last, make sure that you have not mistaken
a subordinate clause for a complete sentence.

Look at: the following examples:
See table at right

Note: If you have come across story books
Where writers sometimes use sentence frag-
ments, it is because they are professionals.
Professional writers are privileged to use sen-
tence fragments for special effect which can
be to add emphasis to what they say or to
make dialogue realistic.

, professional 'writers,use sentence carefully
and intentionally. You are not a professional

as yet. You must avoid sentence fragments in
your writing.

Try This
Write over the paragraph below to do away with
all sentence fragments.
I really like the poem I just finished reading. Be-
cause it was both funny and exciting. I'd like to
read more poems by that poet. One of his plays,
maybe. Although I think it's more difficult to read
a play than a poem. Someday I would like to try,
writing a one-act play. With a nice juicy part for
myself. We would try it out in Writers' Club meet-
ing. If I ever have the nerve to let someone else
read it! That is.


Synonyms are words that have the same or similar,
meanings. In an analogy the terms in each half must
have exactly the same relationship. Which of the words
in brackets will correctly complete this analogy?
Disagree is to quarrel as pretty is to ___ (attrac-

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome. Let's look at the kind of exercises that
can heighten your study. Let us also encourage
you to begin liking to work with tables and graphs
if you do not yet like to use them. Keep the study
groups intact!

The table

Let us do some simple work with tables.
Five families had small garage sales. This is their money

Family Money Money

Even or Odd

When a number is even it can be divided by 2. We
can say that even numbers are multiples of 2.


When a number is not equal, it is odd. Numbers that
are not multiples of two are odd numbers.

Reminders: Factors are numbers that can divide other
The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12.
The factors of 16 are 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16.
1, 2, and 4 are factors of both 12 and 16.
1, 2, and 4 are common factors of 12 and 16.

State if each of the following sen-

Michelle Cole, creator of

"I am happy with the col-

The artist said her collection
was inspired by the Indian Taj
Mahal monument, and
outsourced in India, through
four manufacturing companies,

and the stunning display of her
creations by several interna-
tional models, including
Guyana's Asha Pieters, turned
out to be a splendid showcase.
She said although her Taj
collection was manufactured out
of Guyana and more resources
were readily available, she
would not conclude that it is
her very best collection to date.
"It's hard for me to say
what's my best showcase...,"
she said.

Guyana Chron

With just a camera for company


Tuesday, September
7, 2004 is a day
Grenadians will
always remember, as
it was the day
Hurricane Ivan
decided to put his
grand appearance
on the 'Spice Isle'.
Guyanese Nikita
Medford was there,
and sat down
recently with our
Linda Rutherford to
talk about her
SHE was standing at the
window, looking out at
nothing in particular,
but with half an ear to the ra-
dio, when the telephone rang.
It was her uncle-in-law, call-
ing from London to warn her
to brace herself; that a storm
was headed her way, and that

she should lock herself in
Nikita Medford was all
alone in the apartment. The land-
lady had gone on one of her regu-
lar jaunts to the States... and the
other tenants had long since va-
cated the premises at the first
sign that all was not well. She
lived in one of those quiet, pic-
turesque neighborhoods in an
area called Belmont in the sub-
urbs of St George's, the capital.
The sea was just across the road
from her front door.
She assured him she was
alright, as the people on the
news had said that the storm
won't hit hard; that it would ac-
tually miss the island altogether,
as it was heading in a southerly
But, he was adamant.
"Now, you listen here
young lady!" he said. "Don't
you go anywhere near the door
or the windows. I'm tracking
this hurricane on the 'net', and
it's headed right at you."
But for all his admonish-

ment, she felt there was good
chance he just might be overact-
ing, so, she stood her ground.
"After he hung up, I still
stood at the window. In all my
life, I'd never experienced any-
thing quite like this before. The
wind was practically howling...
and you can see the trees bend-
ing every which way." Looking
at her watch, she saw it was a
little after 14:00 h.
She'd always heard, even
while at school, that you can't
see wind. But this here was dif-
"I actually saw it... this ex-
traordinarily thick mass... You
can also see like... loose
leaves... and stuff... going by. I
thought it was just high winds,"
Medford recalled.
Visibility was so dense, that
by 14:30 h, when the storm re-
ally hit land, looked more like
17:00 h or 18:00 h. Power was
already down, shut off by the
Just about then, her husband
called, saying he was worried

about her safety and asking her
to join him in prayer. Then sud-
denly, something hit the wall.
She screamed. Her husband tried
to shush her, but to no avail.
Shortly after, the phone went
dead. And, as if on cue, the roof
from a neighboring apartment
took off, followed by the walls.
"First, there was a ripping
sound... and then I saw the zinc
take off like a big kite. Because
of the speed of the wind, every-
thing just came off in one go. It
was as if a great big giant had
just reached down and torn ev-
erything in half."
Frightened out of her wits,
her first reaction was to run to
the bedroom and grab her cam-
era. Back at the window, drawn
there, perhaps, by some primor-
dial instinct, she decided to tape
the camera,, just a regular
Konica, to the pane so she could
better manage it.
"Like I said... I'm always jot-
ting down stuff that happens... and
I said to myself: 'This is the per-
fect opportunity for me to actually
make live recordings.' So, the win-
dow is locked... and I have the
camera glued there..., 'cause it's au-
tomatic. It's my companion, re-
Then Medford noticed a
funny thing that the cables
leading past her window from
the building in which she lived
to the utility pole just outside
the driveway were taut on one
side, but lax on the other.
"I said to myself: 'Nah!
Something is wrong here! Even
if it's my first experience of a
Knowing that the power
was off, she went to get her
pinking shears, and returning,
opened the window a crack and
proceeded to cut those of the
wires that led from her apart-
ment. The rationale, here, she
said, was that should the pole
fall, it wouldn't take the window
along with it.
By then, she had armed her-
self with her passport, her cel-
lular phone and a portable carry-
all she'd already had packed ear-
lier. In that bag were candles.
boxes of matches, toilet paper.
a change of .lthIirn:. and fresh
'undies', all wrapped up nicely
in plastic and waiting. "I was
well prepared that way, but not
emotionally." she said.

At one point during a lull in
the storm, which was when the
eye was passing over the island,
she said, she would try to make
a break for it, but the door just
wouldn't budge. This triggered
another bout of hysteria.
"Just then, I saw some men
running by... so I began pound-
ing on the window pane and
shouting for help, hoping they
would hear and come to my res-
cue. But they wouldn't look my
way... and I couldn't get out!"
Later she would learn that
those were no ordinary men, but
prisoners, some of whom were
either set free by the wardens or
saw a window of opportunity
and took it.
The storm would rage for a
good two-and-a-half hours. By
then, the place had grown pitch
black. In all this time, she never
left the window. "I was afraid to
move... I thought that if I
moved, and they come to get me,
let me see them coming...."
Trying the door a second
time, it gave way without inci-
"As I touched it," she said,
"it just flew open... and out I
went." But once outside, she had
no idea in which direction to
head. "I just knew that I wanted
to get out of there... even with
all the electric cables on the
ground... the flying debris.., and
By then, the road had turned
into a raging river. There was
water everywhere... in places as
deep as mid-calf. There was wa-
ter even in her house. "Water
was rushing through from the
back door right out the front.
From the time the hurricane
started, that had begun to hap-
pen." The storm had been ac-
companied by heavy rains, she

It was deceptively calm out-
doors. The unusually;high winds
seemed to have died jiu I .. sud-
denly as they had ,.-ur I1 was
as if nothing had happened," she
said. Her first thought, once she
had composed herself and gotten
her bearings, was to head in the
general direction she had seen the
men running earlier. t-hnt irn
that, being Grenadians. they bet-

ter knew the layout of the land.
She'd also assumed that
they were headed for a shelter
and was following their lead
'when she met this nice elderly
couple, who would make her
realise how lucky she was, and
thank God for spared life. The
couple, who were on vacation,
had lost all their belongings to
the hurricane. All they owned,
by way of clothing, was what
they had on their backs.
"When I looked around, I
realized that God was with me
on several occasions.... When
the doors got stuck, and I didn't
get out with those men, and then
when I came out and saw that
there were only three houses left
standing... without any dam-
age." These were the one in
which she lived, and two others
a short distance away. All the
others, she said, had sustained
some sort of damage or the other.

home after the hurricane.
"What didn't crumble flat was
half-crumbled. So I took the
couple and ran right back inside."
All she had to offer them to
wear were two dresses, which
they both graciously accepted.
They all had a good laugh over
it the next morning, she said.
Recalling the incident, she
said: "We were all nervous. And
the morning, I got up... and I'm

ally I had let into my house...

To make matters worse, she
burst out laughing. She just
couldn't help it, she said. The
sight of them was just too much
for her to bear, especially seeing
him in one of her dresses.
"When I looked at them, I

HE latest from 'the
Spice Isle' is that
though work is moving
apace to return it, as close as
is humanly possible, to its
former glory, there is mount-
ing fear among the citizenry
that history may very well re-
peat itself with a new hurri-
cane season already upon us.
In the words of Glenis Felix,
whose sentiments amply reflect
the concerns of many of her
countrymen: "I worry about this
year. I'm afraid another Ivan
could put me back in the same
stress again and leave me home-
less with my children."
Felix, who lives on a hill
overlooking the Atlantic Ocean,
is one of the few people affected
by the storm that can boast of
having a roof over their heads.
According to an Associated
Press (AP) report, filed on June
2, of the 10,000 houses wrecked
during the course of Ivan's vi-
cious passage, only 170 have
been rebuilt thus far. It quotes
Head of the Grenada Agency for
Reconstruction and Develop-
ment (GARD), Mr. Richardson
Andrews, as blaming the delay
in the reconstruction drive on the
shortage of imported building
supplies and labour. Other
sources cite their inability to put
their hands on the kind of
money needed to effect even the
simplest of repairs much less to
rebuild, and the lack of insurance

she knew exactly what to do
in the event of a crisis;
whether there wasn't some sort
of precognition at work here. "I

clue, otherwise I would not

Why the best thing is for us not
to have another hurricane."
Many a school, among them
the South St George's Govern-
ment Primary. still sport the
striking blue plastic tarpaulins
that were hastily erected to keep
out the elements after losing
their roofs to Ivan's 125 mph
winds. a feature that was com-
monplace among many public
and privately-owned properties

just four months ago. Among
buildings that had not yet had
their roofs replaced at the time
were many of the larger busi-
nesses in the city, the old Geor-
gian Parliament, York House, the
Catholic Cathedral and the main

Huge piles of discarded zinc
sheets and roof tiling, the news
report says, still sit outside the

wrecked national
stadium, and the country's once
vibrant nutmeg fields, which
earned it the enviable reputation
of being the world's third larg-
est producer of the spice, still lie
bare after the beating they took
at the hands of Ivan.
And, with the U.S.-based
National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration (NOAA)
predicting some seven to nine
hurricanes this season, three to
five of which are likely to rank
Category 3 (having winds of be-

higher, reports are that tension
has already begun to mount.

van McIntyre is quoted as say-
ing. "People don't want to have
that experience again." Ivan was
rated Category 3 when it struck
According to a BBC report
back in February, the registry for
the parish of St George, where
the capital, St George's is located
and where close to one-third of
the island's population lives,
showed a significant increase in
the number of people aged 50
and over who had died the
month after 'Ivan'.
"Apparently, some people
just gave up the will to live,"
said Dr. Dolland Noel, a se-
nior registrar at the General
Hospital. He conceded that
not only was there a higher
incidence of strokes and heart
attacks following 'Ivan', but a
significant increase as well in
the number of people who
sought treatment for depres-
sion, anxiety and post-trau-
matic stress disorders.
Even now. it is said, close to
nine months since the incident
occurred, some infants still
cower in fright whenever there
are strong winds. A government-
led initiative to offer counselling
to front-line medical and emer-

agency staff was also extended to
include school children.
And, according to Ms.
Jacklyn Sealy-Burke of the
Grenada Community Develop-
ment Agency (GrenCODA),
which also coordinated a nation-
wide counselling programme,
many in the business community
still suffer from what she calls
'flashbacks', in reference to the

of the widespread looting follow-
ing Ivan.
Sealy-Burke believes that
the only "long-term cure" for
those afflicted with this stress-
related malady is seeing their
homes and businesses repaired
or rebuilt.
At a Caribbean Tourism
Organisation (CTO)-
brokered press conference
held in New York on Septem-
ber 29, Director of the
Grenada Tourist Board, Ms.
Christine Noel-Horsford, had
reported that water and elec-
tricity were "almost fully re-
stored to the capital" and that
work was moving apace to en-
sure that the five other par-
ishes, namely St. David, St.
Patrick, St. Andrew, St. John
and St. Mark were back on
track as quickly as possible.
Most of the major roads, she
said, had been cleared of debris
and were again open to
traffic. Security, which was se-
verely tested in the aftermath of
the hurricane, was firmly back in
place, and the dusk to dawn cur-
few, which was in effect at the
time, had been lifted in five par-
Several private schools, she
reported, had been reopened,
while it was hoped that others
would have been open by mid-
October. In the commercial sec-
tor, many of the nation's banks.
supermarkets, shops and gas
stations were open for business.
The General Hospital was back
to normal, she said.
On the tourism front. she
said that while it will take some
time for this sector to fully re-
cover. there was some measure
of progress, in that with the re-
opening of the Point Salines In-
ternational Airport. most of the

Exen the cruise Csctor is secing
real progress. she said. adding:
'The port is nov, operational

and several cruise lines expect to
begin calls in October."
Accommodation-wise, she
said those of the hotels that
had sustained minor dam-
ages, like Bel Air Plantation
and True Blue Bay Resort,
were already fully operational
and accepting guests while
others were expecting to throw
open their doors by January
2006 at the latest. Spice Island
Beach Resort, on the other
hand, which had suffered se-
vere damage, was expected to
remain closed for a full
year. Hoteliers were granted
100 per cent concession for
refurbishment and repairs.
The Food and Agriculture
Organisation (FAO) and the gov-
ernment of Taiwan were work-
ing with farmers and fishermen
in the hard-hit agricultural sector
to assess the damage and help
resuscitate the industry.
Noel-Horsford was later
back in the news, this time
around in April of this year,

when she was quoted by the
Miami Herald as saying: "We
have 59 per cent of our hotel
rooms open and expect by
December to have 80 per cent,"
and adding that the hotels were
putting out special rates to
appeal to visitors. The island's
second-largest, the 212-room
Rex Grenadian, as well as the
Blue Horizon Hotel, she said,
were slated to reopen next
Despite these reassurances,
however, the latest report is that
tourists are yet to return in their
usual large numbers, even though

tels have now been reopened for

The unconventional film

legacy of a lady-princess

GRACE Kelly was an
ladylike American
actress whose ten films, all
made in the 1950s, left us
profound lessons in
exemplary socialbehaviour.
Kelly's father was:a wealthy
industrialist and her mother
a vivacious athletic lady.
Kelly inherited certain
refined and pleasant
civilised values which she
conveyed through her film
roles. But are such values

merely the result of a
comfortable, privileged
social lifestyle? Are they
values only of a certain
class, or are they really
simple-human values lying
-within us, which we can
either deny, or cultivate?
Grace Kelly's film roles an-
swered these questions by of-
ten casting her as a decent, dig-
nified lady who comes to under-.
stand, accept., and in the case of
men, find romance with those of
less social refinement, status or
wealth. It is. Kelly, who, in her

films, becomes less conventional
and ordinary by sharing her at-
tention and herself with others
who appear less socially accept-
In 'High Noon', 1952,
Kelly's first film, her role as the
young, conventional and inexpe-
rienced wife who wants only to
run away from her husband's
dangerous social duties as a
.Sheriff targeted for revenge,
showed how she gradually laid
aside her conventional habits
and learned true loyalty and
strength from a Mexican pros-
titute, played brilliantly by

film classic from start to
finish, was not simply Kelly's
unconventional relationship
with Gable, but the film's subtle
message that tropical heat,
tropical people, and wild, un-
polluted geographical beauty
can keep alive our human will
to live, love and enjoy life.
Sometimes, Kelly's free-
spirited film roles made her
the victim of jealousy and
danger. This is the case in
Hitchcock's 'Dial M for Mur-
der', 1954, the fist of three
classic thrillers she made
with Hitchcock. In this film,
Ray Milland plays her sinis-
ter husband convinced of her
infidelities with friends and
doggedly plotting her demise.
Again in 1954, Kelly co-
starred in Hitchcock's 'Bear
Window', a truly famous sus-
pense film with James Stewart
as the photographer nursing a
broken leg, who, with his bin-
oculars, comes to realise a mur-
der has been committed in a
nearby apartment. The film in-
troduced Kelly as Stewart's
bright, well-groomed, delightful
companion, always with play-
ful conversation and clever
She would complete three
more classic films before mak-
ing her delightful third
Hitchcock film 'To Catch a
Thief' with Cary Grant in 1955.
However, her roles in 'The
Country Girl', 1954, as Bing
Crosby's simple, stern wife,

the quiet stoic wife of fighter
pilot William Holden in 'The
Bridges at Toko-Ri', 1955, all
show Kelly in top acting form
as the decent woman who is
never imprisoned by conven-
tional habits.
It was during the making of
'To Catch a Thief' in the region
of the French Riviera's
Principality of Monoca and its
capital Monte Carlo, that Grace
Kelly's life and career would
gain a wider practicality through
meeting the late Prince Rainier,
subsequently becoming his wife.
Their union was not strange at
all, since Rainier was perhaps
the most relaxed, debonair and
'hip' prince Mediterranean
Europe ever knew; a dignitary
so humble you could pass him
sitting on a park bench without
realising who he was.
Kelly gave her final film
roles as the rich 'beatnik' girl
who likes to pack a lunch box
of fried chicken and cold beer
and share it with the suave ex-
jewel thief, Cary Grant, in her
sports car parked on a breezy
Riviera Cliffside in 'To Catch a
Thief'; then as the care-free so-
cialite in 'High Society', 1956,
who is undecided up to the last
minute whether to marry Bohe-
mian playboy Bing Crosby, or
his equally crazy pal, Frank
Sinatra, but nevertheless all
three are looking forward to the
Swing Jazz that will be played
by.:t.bla'ck. ,hipster 'Louig'

Kelly turned Monaco into a
pleasant, small, well-pro-
tected model society of
simple local citizens benefit-
ing from an influx of interna-
tional millionaires, film stars,
celebrities, playboys,
playgirls, the proliferation of
art galleries and museums
dedicated to the Arts and
Sciences, relaxed casinos,
yearly events dedicated to
pop, jazz and classical mu-
sic, dance troupes, regattas, a
Grand Prix for car racing, the
Princess Grace Foundation
for the Arts, etc. In short, a
civilised model for peaceful
development which can in-
spire other small societies.
But Grace Kelly's and
Rainier's greatest legacy no
doubt would be their three,
equally socially relaxed chil-
dren; young Princess
Stephanie who would pro-
duce a most refreshing pop
album of kind social senti-
ments in the 1980s; Prin-
cess Caroline, sensitive,
stoic, and quietly dedi-
cated; and Prince Albert,
Monaco's new Head of
State, energetic, gregarious,
and socially innovative.
The life and legacy of ac-
tress Grace Kelly proved that
the original unconventional
Hollywood dream of a more
socially kind and pleasant
world projected on film, can
indeed become a reality., ,

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll look at Do living things respond
to Stimuli? Do all living things move and
last week's review.

Do living things respond to Stimuli?

We say the moving of living things is the re-
sponse of something called stimuli. In last
week's example, the blow from a stone was the
stimulus, and the response was the movement of
the snake. A stimulus is something which causes
a living thing to act in a particular way. The re-
sponse is the result of action. Living things
move in a way that helps them to survive, but if
a car were allowed to move without a driver it
would keep going until it's crashed into some-
thing and destroy itself.

the answers is yes, but it is only animals which
can move from place to place. Have you ever
seen a plant? The leaves of a sensitive plant (Mi-
mosa or Schrankia) touch them and see what
happens. Look at the leaves of a Cassia tree,
or of a Flamboyante flower or tree at about 5
p.m., and then at intervals of thirty minutes un-
til 7 p.m. what do you observe?

The County of Berbice
New Amsterdam: Our Township
Here are some pointers in the history of New
Amsterdam, Berbice:
1. The original New Amsterdam started up in the vi-
cinity of Fort Nassau, some fifty-five (55) miles up the
Berbice River. This was happening during the first half
of the 18th century. (When we say 18th century, we
mean dates beginning with 17 hundred, such as 1760,
just for the sake of an example.) New Amsterdam be-
gan as a small township with some buildings erected in
a line following the route of the river bank.
2. The inhabitants of the original Ne ', \mkc-rd;aim hia'd

to play a part in the up-keep of their environment. They
were required to pay a fixed sum each year to the
Dutch Reform Church and the hospital, and were asked
to keep the public paths and dividing land between their
lots free of bush and grass. (Note what they did then.
Today we need to be more environmentally conscious and
willing to spend some time fleshing out ideas and executing
favourable plans for the place in which we live.)
3. There came a time after 1784 that the Dutch in
Berbice decided to move the seat of Government down-
stream towards the ocean. The exact spot was toward
the confluence of the Berbice and Canje Rivers. The
town of New Amsterdam as we know it now was then
born. The site was selected because of its natural out-
let and entry ports that can deal with whatever kinds
of produce the hinterland yielded.
4. There had to be a name for the new township. The
name New Amsterdam was chosen because most of
the persons who held shares in the town were from the
Dutch province of New Amsterdam in Holland. The
first ordinance on record about this new town was done
on 11th January 1791. Under the terms of this Ordi-
nance lots were to be given out along the river front,
and each owner was required to empolder his land and
provide drainage.
5. The township had parameters for we know one thing
- the end of the town was close to the Canje Creek.
By it was an imposing building called the Government
House was built of brick in the 'European Style.' This
was a landmark of importance.
6. When the township first started, along the waterfront
was a scattering of houses. Some home owners chose
to build the steeply sloping Dutch-style roof, covered
with troolie or plantain leaves, others used shingles.
7. In 1812 a commissary was appointed to plan and
carry out the construction of roads and bridges and work
odt a proper drainage system. Proper roads and a drain-.

Usually movements of plants are so slow
that we cannot see them happening, so the
rapid movements of the leaves of the
sensitive plant seem very unusual. Speeded
up cinema photography can show us plant
movements very clearly. Have you ever seen
a film of seeds germinating? Animals move
much more quickly and frequently, and
respond to a much bigger variety of stimuli
than plants.

I would like fine out, do living things grow?

Do non-living things move?

Can we say, then, that living things move, but
non-living things do not? What the motor car?
Is it alive? Or a flag, fluttering on a pole? Why
do these things move? The flag moves because
the wind blows it. The car moves because some-
one is pressing on its accelerator. Why do
snakes move? To escape an enemy.

The is simply saying not because something
is not living it cannot be moved, there will
be something that would propel it, to make
it move from one position to the other.

Excerpt -,A

It was a hard hit. and Bathsheba had unmistakably lost
her temper, and on that account, Gabriel had never in
his life kept his own better. He said nothing. She then
broke out -

"I may ask, I suppose, where ini particular my unwor-
thiness lies? In my not marrying you, perhaps?"

"Not by any means," said Gabriel quietly. "I have long
given up thinking of that matter."

hOr wishing it, I suppose," she said; and it was appar-
ent that she expected an unhesitating denial of this sup-

Whatever Gabriel felt, he coolly echoed her words -

"Or wishing it either."

A woman may be treated with a bitterness that is sweet
to her. and with a rudeness which is not offensive.
Bathsheba wound ha\ e submitted to an indignant chas-
tisement for her levity had Gabriel protested that he was
loving her at the same time; the impetuosity of passion
unrequited is bearable, even if it stings and anathema-
tizes there is a triumph in the humiliation, and a ten-
derness in the strife. This was what she had been ex-
pecting, and what she had not got. To be lectured be-
cause the lecturer sa%\ her in the cold morning light of
open-shuttered distillation was exasperating. He had not
finished, either. He continued in a more agitated voice:-

"My opinion is (since you ask it) that you are greatly to
blame for play ing pranks upon a man like Mr. Boldwood,
amnerely as a pastime. Leading on a man you don't care
ifor' is not a praiseworthy action. And even, Miss
F\erdene- if you seriously incline towards him, you
might hate let him find it out in some way of true lov-
mng-kindness, and not by sending him a valentine's let-

Bathsheba laid do\\ n the shears.

"I cannot allow any man to to criticize my private
conduct!" she exclaimed. "Norwill I for a minute. So
you'll please lea\ e the farm at the end of the week!"

It may have been a peculiarity at any rate it was a
fact that when Bathsheba was swayed by an emo-
tion of an earthly sort her lower lip trembled: when by
a refined emotion, her upper lip or heavenward one.
Her nether lip quivered now.

"Very %%ell. so I \\ ill." said Gabriel calmly. He had been
field to her by a beautiful thread which it pained him to
s.pil in breaking, rather than by a chain he could not
break. "I should be even better pleased to go at once,"
he added.

"Go at once then, in Heaven's name!" said she, her eyes
.flashing at his. though never meeting them. "Don't let
me see your face any more."

"Very well,.Miss Everdene so it shall be."

And he took his shares and went away from her in
placid dignity, as Moses left the presence of Pharaoh.
(From' Thomahs Hardy's "Far from the Madding
Crowd") '.


Write a story that contains the sentence: "They never
saw eye to eye on this matter."

Excerpt B

Any zeal is proper for religion, but the zeal of the sword
and the zeal of anger; this is the bitterness of zeal, and
it is a certain temptation to e\ erv man against his duty;
for if the sword turns preacher and dictates propositions
by empire instead of arguments, and engraves them in
men's hearts with a poignard, that it shall be death to
believe what I innocently and ignorantly am persuaded
of, it must needs be unsafe to try the spirits, to try all
things, to make inquiry, and yet, without this liberty, no
man can justify hunself before God or man, or confi-
dently say that his religion is best; since he cannot with-
out a final danger make himself to give a right sentence,
and to follow that %which he finds to be the best. They
may ruin souls by making hypocrites or careless and
compliant against conscience or without it; but it does
not save souls, though peradventure it should force them
to a good opinion.

This is inordination of zeal, for Christ, by reproving St.
Peter drawing his sword even'in the cause of Christ,
for his sacred and yet injured person, saith Theophylact,
"teaches us not to use the sword, though in the cause
of God or for God himself'....

When Abraham sat at his tent doY4 according to his cus-
tom, waiting to entertain strange he espied an old man,
stopping and leaning ox his staff. weary with age and
travel, coming towards him, wh owas a hundred years
of age. He received him kindly,: washed his feet, pro-
vided supper, caused him to sit d6Wn, but observing that
the old man eat and prayed notbior begged a blessing
on his meat, he asked him why he did not Worship the
God of Heaven. The old man told him that he wor-
shipped the fire only, and acknowledged no other God.
At which answer Abraham ngrew so zealously angry that
he trust the old man out of his teht, and exposed him to
all the evils of the night and an unguarded condition.
When the old man had gone, God called to Abraham.
and asked him where the stranger %%as. He replied, "I
trust him away because he did not worship thee." God
answered him, "I have suffered him all these hundred
years, although he dishonoured me: and couldst thou not
endure him one night?"

The Poem
"Time Out"

It took that pause to make him realize
The mountain he was climbing had the slant
As of a book held up before his eyes
(And was a text albeit done in plant).
Dwarf-cornel, gold-thread, and maianthemum,
He followingly fingered as he read,
The flowers fading on. the seed to come;
But the thing was the slope it gave his head:
The same for reading as it was for thought,
So different from the hard and level stare
Of enemies defied and battles fought.
It was the obstinately gentle air
That may be clamored at by cause and sect
But it will have its moment to reflect.

derly about his subject in "Time Out"? Support your
answer in two or three complete statements.

very imaginative poem? Show how?

ters where they are called for.

Droughts are caused by the
lack of rainfall over a long
period of time. If rain does
occur, it usually isn't enough
for the ground to absorb the
water before it is evaporated
again. Plants and animals
need water to survive, so if
there is not enough water
they will eventually die from
thirst and dehydration. Water
is one of the main ingredi-
ents in the food chain; for ex-
ample: If a plant dies from
lack of water then the animal
that eats that plant will also
die, the cycle will then con-
tinue to die out.
Most droughts tend to oc-
cur during summer, as the
weather is hot and water is
quickly evaporated. Droughts
can last for years in most ex-
treme cases. These types of
droughts affect outback proper-
ties and can devastate crops and

Drought is also associated
with increases in insect infesta-
tions, plant disease, and wind
erosion. Droughts may cause
problems with insects and dis-
eases to forests. Forest fires in-

ods of droughts. Farmers are
not the only ones who suffer
during droughts. Retailers who
provide goods and services to
farmers must deal with reduced

effects spread far beyond the
physical effects of drought it-

drought are reduced crop, range-

reduced water levels; increased

tries are seriously damaged be-
cause tourists do not want to
travel to a country that is suf-
fering from a severe water short-
age. Shortages of certain goods
result in the costly importation
of necessary goods from outside
the affected area.
Environmental losses are
caused by damages to plant and
animal species. Wildlife habitat
and air and water quality are
usually damaged due to a lack
of water and an increase in for-
est and range fires. Most of the
effects of drought are short-
term, and as the drought comes
to an end many problems are
solved. However, many other
environmental problems hinder
the area from developing for
long periods after the drought is
over. For example, wildlife habi-
tat may be ruined through the
loss of wetlands, lakes, and veg-
etation. Some species of animals
may be wiped out from the area
as well.

Tenders are invited for the supply of Office Materials and Supplies to the Guyana Elections
Commission. !
Persons/Suppliers desirous of tendering are asked to uplift the prescribed Tender Documents

in the home and society, as well
as to encourage those of us who
are struggling to grow, thus en-
abling us to take on the challeng-
ing role as the male parent.

Over the past several de-
cades, there has been a
clarion call, a plaintive plea
for good men, good fathers.
Evidence has been accumu-
lated to demonstrate that the
traditional definition of man-
hood is very costly for women,
children and. men them-
selves. Many well-meaning

dads feel overwhelmed by the
job. According to McDowell
and Wakefield, many admit
that they're fumbling in the
juggling act of marriage, ca-
reer and fatherhood. Most
feel trapped by the intense
work schedules, and the ac-
companying pressures; by
lack of practical fathering
skills; by lack of good team-
work with their wives or by
unhealthy patterns in their
own personalities.
Further, our 20th cen-
tury reeked with unhealthy at-

.. ,. :. .. . -

titudes that trapped many men.
These attitudes led them to de-
. feat in their personal lives, mar-
riages, and opportunities as fa-
For years we were under
the illusion that the ideal man
was the macho man. Our heroes
have been tough, brawny indi-
viduals without feelings. Even
sports figures are often exalted
because of their arrogant, "I-
body attitude."
An opposite image has
emerged in recent years that is
equally damaging. Television,
movies, and cartoons often por-
tray men as weaklings or buf-
foons. Thus, children viewing
movies and television are more
apt to see men depicted as
weak, foolish or immature.
Thus defaulting, absent
or uninvolved fathers have led
to a "father crisis" a modern day
family tragedy. Consider the
baleful results.

Cruise loses

PR wars as u.

appeal is. His domestic
box office numbers have been
down, masked by continuing
strong foreign box office
appeal. And he remains such
a powerful client -
representing so many
millions of dollars a year that
CAA can't say no to him. Still,
Paramount, which is now in
transition under new chairman
Brad Grey, refused to greenlight
'Mission: Impossible 3' until it
could bring down the budget -
and Cruise's share of the first-
dollar grosses to a level that
would permit the studio to
make some of its considerable
outlay back. (Everyone knows
that Steven Spielberg and

share of the grosses on
upcoming 'War of the Worlds'.
That's a loss leader, a given.)
Tentpoles are supposed to
make the studio some money,
and Grey wasn't happy with
the 'M:I-3' projections, Para-
mount sources say. He also had
some extra leverage in the nego-
tiation. Cruise is no longer the
only A-lister on the Paramount
lot. Grey has long represented
Brad Pitt and soon will an-
nounce a Paramount deal with
Pitt's Plan B Prods. Pitt, who
already is committed to
Paramount's 'Babel' and 'Ben-
jamin Button', isn't just another
movie star. He is Cruise's main
competition. His new movie,
'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' topped the
current weekend box office with
an estimated $51 million its first
three days, a career best both for
Pitt and co-star Aneglina Jolie.
Cruise and Pitt have much
in common. They're both char-
ismatic 40ish movie stars at the
top of their game with a bigger
following overseas than domes-
tic and a predominantly female
fan base. They can cherry-pick
the best projects and directors.
(As his three Oscar nominations
attest, Cruise boasts a better rep
as an actor.) They're both in re-
covery from busted marriages to
famous actresses Pitt to Jen-
nifer Aniston and Cruise to
Kidman which always is a sen-
sitive time for a male movie star.
Kevin Costner's career, for one,
never fully bounced back from
fan backlash after he left his
wife and broke up the family.
On the other hand, Kingsley
had navigated the Cruise/
Kidman breakup masterfully.
And Pitt's PR rep, Cindy
Guagenti, also knows what
she's doing. In this Internet age,
when every little movie-star
morsel gets picked over and
multiplies exponentially on the
Internet beyond mere print and
broadcast, you can't afford to
make a mistake. Now it's virally
transmitted on such gossipy
sites as Defamer, Jossip and
Liquid Generation where much
of the stuff is sheer fiction. (Ask
'Cinderella Man's' Russell
Crowe, who might have just
thrown away a sure Oscar nomi-
nation by allegedly throwing a
phone at a hotel minion.)
But then, in March 2004,
Cruise unexpectedly fired
Kingsley. Why the break after
14 years in which the uber-pub-
licist had guarded him fiercely?
Kingsley's dictum to the press

had always been, "Lay off
Tom's religion." It was verboten
to bring it up. But as he headed
into his 40s, he wanted to talk
about Scientology. It fell to
Kingsley, at Warner Bros. Pic-
tures' request, to instruct Cruise
not to discuss Scientology dur-
ing his European press tour for
2003's "'The Last Samurai'.
The next time she met with
Cruise was her last, though.
When he left for Europe, she
was not on his jet.
Cruise replaced her with
someone he could trust to do
what he wanted: his older sis-
ter and fellow Scientologist, Lee
Anne Mapother De Vette, who
had long functioned as his assis-
tant and PR go-between at C/W
Prods. And Cruise's press since
PR amateur DeVette took over
has been markedly different.
WT- -'t. -*-- t-n_:-- )-l t.

gesting that the whole thing was
fake. When Cruise went wild on
'The Oprah Winfrey Show', fed
by the intensity of his gaga fe-
male fans, he jumped on the

tually howled his love at the

living in fatherless families
were sixty per cent more
likely to have premarital in-
tercourse that those living in
two-parent homes.

*Dr. Armand Nicholi's re-
search found that an emotionally
or physically absent father con-
tributes to a child's (1) low mo-
tivation for achievement, (2) in-
ability to defer immediate grati-
fication for later rewards, (3)
low self-esteem, and (4) suscep-
tibility to group influence and
juvenile delinquency.

*Dr. Carl Paris of the
University of the West Indies,
St. Augustine campus has

posited that the breakdown
in the family institution has
led to juvenile crimes, teen-
promiscuity, and teen prosti-
tution across the Caribbean
region. The social, health,
psychological and spiritual
problems created by this
trend are painful and fright-

Children need a father. The
bottom line is that Dads are of
vital importance to their chil-
dren. Deep in the heart of ev-
ery child is the intense desire to
be accepted and affirmed by his
father. Each child wants a lov-
ing father and looks up to him
. as an essential constant who is

there for them.
The father is the provider,
the protector, leader, the priest,
the helper, and friend. Usually,
a loving father who has a good
connection with his family
strives to have a positive rela-
tionship with each of the chil-
dren; tries to meet their needs;
is there when they need him; at-
tempts to effectively communi-
cate and spends quality time
with them. These are essential
for a healthy, happy bonding
between father and child.
The father power of in-
fluence is crucially important
in every home. A good father-
child relationship leads to

pointing out that the neglectful

cally that, "Father power is dif-
ferent from mother power, and
you need both in order to de-

of the University of California,
Los Angeles. The study found

way, there was an elevation of
the hemoglobin count inthe _
blood. Canfield continues by
saying if the father and grand-
fathers involve themselves in
the lives of their children, the
following beneficial results will
tend to be seen: (a) increased in-
tellectual ability, (b) positive
modelling for their children, (c)

the children receic a better gen-

be affected, (g) the children will
have more positive attitudes to-
wards their siblings, and (h)
there will be more pleasant
memories after they leave home
or their parents die.
One favourite author,
who wrote much on the privi-
leges of parenthood says,
"Fathers do not discourage
your children. Combine af-
fection with authority, kind-
ness and sympathy with firm
restraint. Givesome of your
leisure hours to your chil-
dren. become acquainted
with them, associate with
_ themin their- work and in
their sports and win their
confidence. Cultivate friend-
ship with them, especially
with your sons. In this way,
you will be a strong influ-
ence for good.
In conclusion, I urge those
who are conscientious fathers

to take a hard look at what is
being taught by society and de-
termine not to let the "system"
squeeze you into its mold.
When our commitment to -
the job of what ever is getting
priority attention, strips us of
time and energy to fulfil this call-
ing, we need to re-evaluate our
priorities and trust the Lord to
open doors for new opportuni-
ties which are in harmony with
his will. We are called to love
our wives, our families, just as
Christ loved the church and
gave himself for it. For the ulti-
mate success of a man/father
when he comes to the end of his
days is not what he has accom-
plished, not what he had done,
or where he has been, but it is
how close he is to his family.
We would agree from these
findings that the relationship a
.child-had-with.hi.s/her father canm-
make all the difference in the
child's self-esteem, regard for
others and sense of purpose.

Happy Father's

AS THE dog grows older, the
muscles of the abdominal
wall lose their tone and
strength. These muscles are
integrally involved in the me-
chanics of defecation, so if
their function is compro-
mised, one can expect that
stooling will become a prob-
lem. Similarly, the rhythmic
motility of the intestines
slows down in elderly dogs.
The wall of the entire intes-
tine (small and large) has a
muscle layer, the function of
which also weakens with age.
As a result, bowel activity is
Above all the contributors
to old-age constipation stands a
faulty (low fibre) diet. Of this,
I am convinced. A diet low in fi-
bre creates small caliber stools
which easily dry out when in
the lower intestine, and accumu-
late in the rectum to a degree
which prevents easy passage
outwards. Diets of chicken
bones, because of the high min-

eral (calcium) content tend to
create a cement-like mass in the
colon that is hard to expel.
Other non-digestible substances
such as grass, paper, cellulose
and cloth can easily lead to
chronic and faecal impaction in
the elderly dog.
Last week, I had mentioned
that an enlarged Prostate Gland
can press against the rectum and
therefore prevent the easy elimi-
nation of faecal matter.


One finds that constipated
dogs exhibit an uneasy
behaviour. They always seem to
be uncomfortable and are al-
ways fidgeting. They usually
strain repeatedly, wanting to ex-
press stool, but nothing
In fact, sometimes a watery
brown stool is passed and own-
ers thing (and tell their vets)
that the dog is having a diarrhea.
What is actually happening is
that the liquid stool is being

forced (by the straining) around
the impaction (blockage). (N.B.
If you suspect faecal impaction
you can confirm this at home
by digital examination, using a
well lubricated rubber glove.)
Sometimes, small, hard,
blood-tinged lumps of faecal
mass are expelled after pro-
longed straining.


Now, what can we .do about
constipation in the old dog?
Well, for starters, the animal
must be placed on a high fibre
diet. We are talking here about
introducing compulsorilyy) bran
cereal, whole wheat bread (in
moderation), pumpkin, squash
and celery into the diet plan.
There are, on the market, some
specialised commercial dog
foods for the elderly dog. Also,
there are special additives to the
diet (I have seen in the USA one
called 'Miller-fs Bran.f) that
can be used.
If you are feeding your dog
the ordinary dried kibble (which

you find nowadays in every
good supermarket), I would sug-
gest that you soak the dried pel-
lets with equal parts of water
and let the mixture stand for 20
minutes. Also, I have always
recommended milk and liver as
part of a constipated dogofs
Mild cases of constipation
can be treated with a laxative
(Mineral Oil, Milk of Magnesia,
etc.) Do not give laxatives on a
regular basis!!
A constipated dog can find
immediate relief, if an enema is
used. For older dogs, I would
advise that your vet should
carry out this exercise. At home,
you may use the 'Fleet-f en--

Father's Day is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June. The idea for
creating a day for children to honor their fathers began in Spokane,
Washington. A woman by the name ofSonora Smart Dodd thought of
the idea for Father's Day while listening to a Mother's Day sermon in
1909. Having been raised by her father, Henry Jackson Smart, after
her mother died, Sonora wanted her father to know how special he
was to her. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices and
was, in the eyes of his daughter, a courageous, selfless, and loving
man. Sonora's father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first
Father's Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of
June, 1910.
