'We have had in place a certain sugar
regime and although we really do
appreciate that individual partner countries
may suffer from this (proposal), we also
have for some years now said 'please take
into account that our policies are going to
change and prepare yourself to make the

country really competitive.' European
Commission (EC) Director General for
Europe Aid Cooperation Office (AIDCO),
Mr. Koos Richelle

By Mark Ramotar

EUROPE has no other choice
but to reform its sugar re-
gime since its industry is cur-
rently not sustainable, ac-
cording to European Commis-
sion (EC) Director General
for Europe Aid Cooperation
Office (AIDCO), Mr. Koos
He, however, underscored
the fundamental need for Afri-
can, Caribbean and Pacific
i -CPi countries which inevi-
tably will face the brunt of the
EC proposal to reform the sugar
industry to have a plan in
place to at least cushion the ef-
fects of the proposed reforms

On June 22, the EC
unveiled a drastic overhaul
of a sugar policy that has
pushed EU prices to three'
times the global average
and come under fire for
years for distorting world
trade. i
EU sugar policy has
survived virtually all at-
tempts at reform since its
birth in the late 1960s, and is
often attacked for harming Third
World producers as it encour-

ages millions of tonnes of EU
sugar to flow onto world mar-
kets, lowering prices.
European Union Commis-
sioner for Agriculture, Ms.
Marian Fischer-Boel, is said to
be the moving force behind this
recently released legislative pro-
posal to reform the EU Sugar
Regime. And in her quest to'ac-
complish her goal, she has the
firm support of Peter
Mandelson and Luis Michel,
the EU Commissioners for

Trade and Development.
According to Guyana's
Foreign Trade and International
Cooperation Minister, Mr.
Clement Rohee, this triumvirate
constitutes the key players in
the unfolding drama on sugar.

It is understood that
Fischer-Boel has the support of
a number of EU member states
as well as some members of the
European Parliament.
But Rohee said "there are
several flies in the ointment"
since ten member states of the
EU and a few others who sit on
the fence are implacably op-
posed to the reform proposals.
"They are now the biggest
headache for Fischer-Boel,"
Rohee asserted in a recent article
published in this newspaper.
He was of the strong view
that the seething internal con-
tradictions and deep divi-
sions among EU member
states as regards the reform
proposals will soon come to
a head and something will
have to give.
The situation is further
compounded by the recent
political crisis that emerged
at the just concluded EU
Summit in Brussels where
the debate on the future of
Europe and the deadlock on
the EU's financial perspec-
tives for 2007-2013 arose.
In an article published in
the June 22 edition of the Fi-
nancial Times, Fischer-Boel
wrote: "As the person
charged with persuading the
25 EU Governments to ac-
cept the Reform, I am fully
aware of the bitterness of the
battle that lies ahead. But I am
equally convinced that there is
no alternative. It might be
tempting to sit on my hands and
have a quiet life; but to do that
would be to usher in the slow
death of sugar production in the
"Having cleared the legisla-
tive draft as she was expected
to do, not as her own propos-
als, but those of the entire Com-
mission, a process has been set
in motion to help Fischer-Boel
get off her hands and apply the
pruning knife to kill off the


sugar industries in the ACP and
some EU countries," Rohee as-
He said; too, that Fischer-
Boel seems "oblivious to the
social and economic upheavals
her reckless action will wreak in
the ACP sugar-producing coun-
"It is doubtful that we
have any allies in the Commis-
sion itself since a close exami-
nation of the track record of
those with whom we have been
meeting has not demonstrated
any tangible support for our


position. That is why we have
described our engagement with
the'Commission as tantamount
to a dialogue of the deaf,"
Rohee charged.
Mandelson, after a visitto
the Skeldon Sugar Estate in
January, said: "I am not go-
ing to fall down on my re-
sponsibility. I give you my
word that I, as EU Trade Com-
missioner, my colleagues Ag-
riculture Commissioner, the
Development Commissioner,
the whole Commission will
be with you". (See other story

AGRICULTURE may not be a so-called "sexy" is-
sue among portfolio responsibilities of CARICOM
Heads of Government. For instance, like 'crime and se-
curity', CSME, 'external economic relations' or 'health' -
especially with its emphasis these days on HIV/AIDS.
But success of the social and economic devel-
opment of our Caribbean Community depends to a great
extent on the region's agriculture sector.
Particularly if we are to reverse the existing
wholly undesirable situation- of having to spend over
US$3 billion (billion) in food and beverage imports and
face up to the problems that the developed and rich na-
tions leave on our doorsteps, under the guise of "free
With the looming economic crisis facing sugar
exporting member states of CARICOM, as a conse-
quence of the indecent, unilateral decision by the Euro-
pean Union to cut, by approximately 40 per cent, the price

of our sugar for the European market, agriculture
emerged as a major issue of deliberations at last week's
Heads of Government Conference in St. Lucia.
And Guyana's President Bharrat Jagdeo, who has
been engaged, like his Jamaican counterpart, P.J.
Patterson, on some intense lobbying efforts and angry
outbursts recently at those primarily responsible for the
threatened loss iin sugar earnings of some US$100
million by virtue of the EU's decision, was very much at
the centre of discussions in St. Lucia on new initiatives
to be pursued.
Not only in battling against the EU's callously im-
posed sugar reform regime. They also focused on a
range of the constraints currently facing the region's ag-
ricultural sector-and how best and quickly to diversify and
modernise to both remove the heavy dependency on food
and beverage imports and become competitive on ex-
tra-regional markets.
Much emphasis was placed on what has come
to be known as the 'Plan of Action on Agriculture' that's
based on the 'Jagdeo Initiative'. That, basically, relates
to the set of recommendations resulting from an assess-
ment by President Jagdeo, who has lead responsibility
for Agriculture among Heads of Government.
As progress continues to be made on implemen-
tation arrangements for the Caribbean Single Market and
Economy primarily in its first component President
Jagdeo and the Prime Minister of Barbados, Owen Arthur,
who has lead responsibility for the CSME, will now be
working more closely together.
One specific area that is to be pursued by Prime

Minister Arthur when he shortly undertakes his
mandated CSME-readiness assessments to the OECS
sub-region, Guyana, Suriname and Belize, would be to
examine the possibilities for securing the regional mar-
ket for key regional agricultural products to replace
what's now being imported.
President Jagdeo would be moving to sensitise
public opinion on the range of his own 'Plan of Action
on Agriculture' and in this respect will be convening a
meeting of CARICOM Ministers of Agriculture and repre-
sentatives of the region's Private Sector on required col-
lective interventions to address the problems and chal-
lenges of Caribbean agriculture.

AFTER the storm came the

tragically, fresh disasters in
Haiti and Cuba.
I am really alluding to
what happened at the 26th an-
nual CARICOM Summit in St.
Lucia with some strange posi-
tions and decisions taken during
the four-day event.
Perhaps the best two
examples would be the fracas
over cricket, involving in par-
ticular the Prime Ministers of
Barbados (Owen Arthur) and
Grenada (Keith Mitchell) before
a surprising decision; and the
Venezuelan-initiated project,

tive the previous week for the
inauguration of the multinational
'PetroCaribe', under which
CARICOM states would ben-
efit from less expensive oil.
A number of
Manning's colleagues in off-the-
record comments had noted that
although some of his expressed
reservations were "shared", they
should first have been privately
discussed at a working session
of the conference.
Instead, he had articu-

lated his reservations in a man-
ner, they thought, that con-
veyed the wrong impression.
Such as seemingly admonishing
CARICOM partners that have
signed the 'PetroCaribe' initia-
tive while having concerns of
their own.
But without prejudice to
Trinidad and Tobago's position
as the traditional major supplier

knowing that negotiations are to

Another and related
surprise came with the strange
SILENCE of the official Summit
communique on ANY aspect
of the PetroCaribe project and
Venezuela's offer of cheaper oil
to Caribbean partners.


This is in sharp con-
trast to the end-of-summit me-
dia briefing at which Manning
was quite pleased to say that

already announced its expecta-

ported by the 'Observer' on
July 6.
In contrast, Barbados,
which has an oil facility ar-
rangement with Trinidad and
Tobago that is unique within the

Community, has not signed the
Venezuela Accord but also
avoids criticising it.

The Prime Minister

ter and which you had identi-
fied as the possible page one

materialise. ('Chief, the man
who promised to talk to me

I have long realized that if
you are not born a journalist, if
the spark is not in your eyes, if
the fire does not burn deep in
your belly, if there is not that
searing hunger that drives you
over the limits, you'll never
make it in this profession. You'll
be just a hanger-on, a has-been,
a pretender.

In the days when the

of those courses; so I went to

about journalism.
They couldn't teach me
much because when the head

we were there to learn how to
write the socialist way, I bluntly

understood was journalism.

from trade agreement nego-
tiations are varied and com-
plex. Governments work to-
ward establishing regula-
tions that are negotiated by
topic or discipline. That's
where countries negotiate
issues such as market access,
government procurement,
intellectual property and
other disciplines requiring
profound knowledge. This is
carried out by experts or spe-
cialists who study each of
those disciplines in depth.
In addition, it is common
for consultations to be held
in countries with the
production sectors and.the
civil society, who, in turn,
create teams of specialists
that provide governments

legislative bodies in countries
and the importance of
legislators understanding the
scope of trade agreements and
the benefit of their prompt

He noted that about five
years ago, the price per barrel

Today, it is about US$60 per

Maturing Democracy

T HE recent CARICOM Heads Summit was particularly
interesting for the special interaction between Heads of
Government and their respective Opposito.n Leaders. While
it represents a signalled commitment of CARICOM Govern-
ments to listen more keenly to their opposition, Guyana's role
was unique.

Several of the CARICOM.
States, which were pushing
this interaction initiative,
were less than willing to al-
low their Opposition Leaders
to address the special forum,

President Bharrat Jagdeo,
before his departure for the
Summit, revealed the seeming
irony where those Heads who
were pushing this idea seemed
reluctant to allow their Op-


lest they misspeakk.' In the
end, only about two Opposi-
tion Leaders were permitted
to address the Heads Guyana
and Dominica.

position Leaders to speak to
the grouping. He further con-
firmed that his Government
would not support any effort
to shut-up the Opposition

here or elsewhere.
Guyana, unlike certain other
sister CARICOM countries,
readily consented to allowing its
Opposition Leader Robert
Corbin to address the high-level
gathering. The cost of. Mr.
Corbin's travel was covered by
the State. This willingness by the
Guyanese Leader was'a clear re-
flection of our growing political
and democratic maturity. No
doubt Mr. Corbin would have
recognized by this act how for-
tunate our Opposition is when
compared with others in this re-
But why should the Guyana
Government be afraid of allow-
ing the Opposition to speak?
The Government has nothing
neither to hide nor to worry
about any statement Mr. Corbin
and the PNCR make here or
abroad. The PPP/Civic has al-
ways been transparent and open
about its governance of the coun-
It has been accepted by the
wider society that the Guyanese
Opposition's general line of at-
tack against the administration
has been weak. All of its myths
and fabrications can be de-
stroyed by the sheer weight of
the Government's policies,
programmes and national

tive of how inclusive, flexible
and magnanimous this Gov-
ernment has been in treating
with the political Opposition.
He would have heard first
hand, the trials and tribula-
tions expressed by the Oppo-
sition of various member
states in getting their voices
heard and participating in the
national decision processes.

by Robert Persaud

Mr. Corbin's presence
was also an admission by him
of how far Guyana's democ-
racy has travelled'. Putting
aside the political differences,
he must have been proud to
have come from a country
where the Opposition is not
now harassed, muzzled or
treated with scorn.
Guyana's leadership in
building and nurturing democ-
racy would have won the re-
spect of the entire region.
Also, .it gives our country
greater credibility in the in-
ternational community. We
are much more respected and
can proudly represent and
defend our dignity and pride.
In fact, President Jagdeo's
mild objection to certain state-
ments made at the Summit's
opening ceremony by the
Trinidad and Tobago Prime
Minister shows that while we
deeply care about regional in-
tegration and strong relations
with sister States, any inkling.
of eye-pass and disrespect

will not be tolerated. The en-
tire region had to look-up, lis-
ten and take careful note of
what Guyana says and does
Further we can all speak
up with one strong and united
voice to ensure that Guyanese
are no longer treated like so-
cial pariahs in certain
CARICOM States. We must
be reminded that no one
should settle for anything less
than being a proud and out-
standing member of the
CARICOM region.
Significantly, the restora-
tion of democracy in 1992 has
allowed us to lift our heads
higher. And the strides and
even the pace-setter role for
genuine democracy and
people participation are earn-
ing us greater respect in
CARICOM and wider afield.
With every passing day,
Guyana's democracy matures
and more people will be watch-
inghow we tap the opportunities
presented by this, and many
other positive features.

(Continued from last
Classical Marxism
advocates that the history of
society is a history of class
struggle, that is, the contest
between the owners and con-
trollers of the means of pro-
duction and the non-owners
and non-controllers of same.
The ruling classes seek to
maintain the status quo
while the working classes
seek to burst it asunder. The
diametrically opposed inter-
ests of the two major classes
result in antagonistic con-
flicts that will only be re-

solved when the ruling
classes are replaced, often by
violent means, by their major
adversaries. In this tradition,
racial conflicts are seen as
skin deep and as a part of
false consciousness. The sa-
lience and persistence of ra-
cial conflicts are not
recognized but are reduced to
one aspect of class conflict.
Thus Boyd concludes: 'the
operation of racial groups
should be seen as a special
case of the functioning of the
more general concept of class

in social and economic rela-
tions' [1987: 192].
Walter Rodney [1981]
applied class, in the Marxist
sense, in his analysis of the his-
tory of the Guianese working
people for the period 1881 to
1905. However, he recognized
that race was enough of a con-
tradiction in nineteenth-century
Guiana to be treated indepen-
dently. He was following in the
path of another independent
Caribbean Marxist, C. L. R.
James, who reasoned that:
'the race question is
subsidiary to the class question
in politics and to think of im-
perialism in terms of race is di-
sastrous. But to reflect the ra-
cial factor as merely incidental
is an error, no less grave than to
make it fundamental' [see Tho-
mas 2000: 21].
Perhaps, scholars like
Rodney and James were willing
to shift from the orthodox Marx-
ist position followed by Boyd
because they recognized the his-
torical coincidences of race and
class in Caribbean societies. In
the Caribbean during slavery the
class that owned the means of
production was white and the
slaves were not. With the abo-
lition of slavery this trend was
continued. The owners of the
plantations were white, those
who controlled the state ma-
chinery were white while those


The Government of. Guyana (GOG) has recently concluded a Loan (US$29.5 million) with the

consists of three sub-components namely: (i) tax policy and administration (ii) public sector
financial management and (iii) fiscal and fiduciary oversight. The overriding aim of the FFMP is
to build effective and sustainable executive and oversight capacities in the Guyana Revenue
Authority (GRA), the Ministry of Finance (MOF), the National Assembly (Economic Services
Committee (ESC) and Public Accounts Committees (PAC) and the Public Procurement
Commission (PPC). To this end the MOF is required to establish and staff a Program Coordination
Unit (PCU) which is already operational.

who worked on the plantations
were mainly non-whites of In-
dian and African extractions.
During the period of
indentureship the working
classes were composed mainly
of African and Indian workers.
They formed the base of the
plantation hierarchy. However,
they seldom recognized their
common working class interests
and very often they found
themselves in opposition to each
other. It appeared that one
group always supported the
ruling class when it was con-
fronted by the other group. In-
stead of conceding this reality
as an inability of the Marxist
class analysis, orthodox Marx-
ists like Callinicos turned to
Karl Marx's letter of 9th April
1870 to Meyer and Vogt. In this
letter, Karl Marx showed that
the ranks of British working
class were divided into two hos-
tile camps, the English proletar-
ians and the Irish proletarians.
Karl Marx argued that this di-
vision '...is the secret by which
the capitalist class maintains its
power. And that class is fully
aware of it' [Callinicos 1998:
35]. Applied to the Caribbean,
this would imply that the divi-
sions between the African and
Indian working classes were
caused by the conspiracy of the
white ruling classes and their
practice of divide and rule.
One of the principle te-
nets of Marxism is the argument
that the ruling ideas of any pe-
riod are the ideas of the ruling
class. One component of the
ruling ideas in the West Indies
during the period under consid-
eration was that the white race
was superior to the non-white
races. In the West Indies this
idea took hold in the oral tradi-
tion of seventeenth-century
Barbados and was crystallised
in print in eighteenth-century
Britain '...as the ideology of the
plantocracy, the class of sugar

planters and slave merchants
that dominated England's Carib-
bean colonies' [Fryer 1984:
134]. In keeping with this
worldview, David Hume, the
eighteenth-century enlighten-
ment philosopher, declared 'I
am apt to suspect the negroes,
and in general all other species
of men (for there are four or five
different kinds), to be naturally
inferior to the whites' [1985:
629-30]. During the period un-
der examination this racist ide-
ology not only survived but
was supported by the pseudo-
scientific biology ofraces drawn
from a distorted version of
Darwin's theory of natural se-
lection. When stripped of all its
finery this idea would have us
believe that the white races
were equipped to govern the
Asians and the Africans and that
in so doing the Europeans were
operating in the best interest of
these two racial groups. The
white man was thus burdened
with the mission of civilising the
rest of humanity. Rudyard
Kipling's poem "The White
Man's Burden" captures this
orientation perfectly.
Take up. the White
Man's burden -
Send forth the best ye
breed -


Go bind your sons to
To serve your captives'
To wait in heavy har-

On fluttered folk and
wild -
Your new-caught, sul-
len peoples,
Half devil and half
child. [see Callinicos 1998: 29-
Obviously, the inden-
tured servants and ex-slaves,
toiling under inhumane planta-
tion conditions in Guiana, did
not subscribe to the view that
the white ruling classes had

their interest at heart. Their
many acts of protest bear ample
testimony to their disbelief.
However, especially the Afri-
cans and the Mulattoes
recognized the necessity to
adopt as much as possible the
culture of the dominant group.
One contemporary of the pe-
riod observed that after eman-
cipation 'the Negroes once as-
sumed as much as was possible
the manners of the white man'
[Brumell 1852: 64]. Similarly,
the Portuguese and the Chinese
did likewise and later so did the
East Indians.
Based on this observa-
tion and making use of the
Weberian class notion of wealth,
status and power, scholars like R.
T. Smith took issue with the phi-
ral thesis. He claimed that the
Guianese society began to inte-
grate by sharing aspects of Eu-
ropean culture which were up-
held to be superior to their own.
Everything in the society was
judged in comparison with Euro-
pean values. This process, re-
ferred to as creolisation, involved
the acculturation of the subordi-
nated groups to the dominant
culture it also served to call at-
tention to differences among the
various racial groups.
Braithwaite [1960] introduced
the concept of incomplete
creolisation which meant that the
rate of creolisation varied among
the various groups. In the case
of Guiana, the Africans were
more creolised than the Indians.
By adopting and par-
ticipating in the various aspects
of the dominant culture, mem-
bers of the African, Mulatto,
Portuguese, Chinese and Indian
races were able to acquire the
skills, education, language, reli-
gion, property and other re-
sources that enabled them to
climb the social ladde. During
slavery and the immediate post-
emancipation period, race and
class converged. Theupper and
middle classes were white and
the lower classes were non-
white. However, the processes
described above led to the modi-
fication of this rigid race/class
structure. For example, through
their domination of the retail
trade, the former indentured
Portuguese joined the middle
class. The ex-slaves became
lawyers, doctors, postmasters,
policemen and teachers and
hence elevated themselves from
the lower classes. By the dawn
of the 20th Century, East Indi-
ans began to join the ranks of
the propertied, professional and
small business classes.
While classical Marx-
ism insists that one's class po-.
sition is determined by one's
location in the production pro-
cess and by extension one's re-
lationship to the means of pro-
duction, the Weberian concept.
of class focuses on market rela-
tions and on issues dealing with
wealth, status and power. The
position adopted by R. T_
Smith and Braithwaite would be
more closely aligned to the
Weberian perspective than that
of Marxist. It is in this former
sense that the present study
would use class.
It is important to note
that while a person could alter
his/her class position through
social mobility it is extremely
difficult, if not impossible, to
change his/her race. In nine-
tcenth-century Guiana individu-
als and groups would be con-
stantly reminded of their race
not only because it was in

(GINA) Government has in-
vested heavily in its capital
and other programmes to im-
prove the lives of Guyanese,
but many of these projects
are being unnecessarily
stalled because of sloth of
public officers, among other
This is the view of Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo, who, dur-
ing a televised interview yester-
day, strongly condemned the
pace at which Government
projects are being implemented
and executed across the coun-
"This is a major problem we
have when money is allocated to

and it is not spent, or alterna-
tively, when we give out the
contracts, the slow pace of
implementation by some of
these contractors or sub-stan-
dard work has caused prob-
lems," the President observed.
"This is my big worry...it's
not just projects; fixing the wa-
ter, road or electricity, it is a ser-
vice to our people because ev-
ery time we delay doing these
things, we are denying our
people a service. That is what I
keep saying to the public ser-
vants and those who are re-
sponsible: you are there to pro-
vide a service to our people. You

work. It makes us look as if we
are not keeping our promises. I
thought that this road was com-
pleted because the people have
been lobbying me for years now
to have the road done," the
President said.
The President noted that
Central Government continues
to monitor implementation and
tardiness within the Public Sec-
tor across the country, with the
view to speeding up projects'
"It is a big challenge," the
President said.
He strongly urged public of-
ficers to improve on the services
provided to citizens.
On the brighter side, Presi-
dent Jagdeo hailed the pace of
private sector development in
"I am very pleased with
what is happening on the pri-
vate side, more investments.
We have seen a large number
of investments, small projects
going ahead and that is
good," the President said.

are the public servants. Hope-
fully we can step up the pace
of implementation so that we
can create more jobs too," he
The President noted that
the low implementation rate of
Regional budgets is a primary
reason for stalled projects.
"I have been pressing the Re-
gionsand the others to do more.
I looked at the figure for the Re-
gional spending of their capital
progranmes and by June of this
year, one Region had spent two
per cent of its budget. Six months
have passed and they spent two
per cent of their budget; another
Region, three per cent of their
budget, and another one eight per
cent of their budget. No Region
had spent more than 21 per cent
of their budget and we are into the
seventh month of the year," he
pointed out.
According to the President,
the problem is one of imple-
"You just have too many
public officers who are not dong
their job. If I had not asked for
these figures, then come year-end,
we would have to send people in

from the Ministry of Finance to
help them accelerate -their
programmes and the projects
would not be completed. From
last year, they brought forward
more than $300M of projects be-
cause they could not complete
them," he said.
The President said that
these incomplete projects are
often blamed on Central Gov-
ernment, as many of them are
promises made by his adminis-
tration. However, in many in-
stances there are problems with
contractors and lack of
supervision. The President re-
called that he had committed
$71M. towards roads, school
and drainage and irrigation at
Wakenaam in May 2004, of
which $60M was made avail-
able, apart from the island's
regular allocation; to repair
roads. That project is yet to be
"The Ministry of Public
Works took a very long time to
get the contractor in place. I am
very unhappy about that. He is
in place about six months now.
When I found out just recently


about the project, they said he
had just put the sand and loam
on the road causing additional
problems. Almost a year has
passed since I allocated the
money and the work has not
been done. The people in
Wakenaam are still suffering be-
cause of bad roads. So 1 said to

them terminate his contract and
go back out to tender. Hope-
fully we'll get a better contrac-
tor," he said.
When the President was at
Wakenaam, he had assured that
the road works will start imme-
diately after the rainy season,
which would have been in the
latter part of 2004.
Additionally, the Head of
State had also committed to re-
pairing a deplorable road at
Unity, East Coast Demerara
more than a year ago. The Min-
istry of Public Works had sent
an engineer, who was accompa-
nied by residents, to inspect the
road. The wrong road was sub-
sequently repaired.
"They did a road that was
done three years ago...these
things make me really angry
when there is malaise, laziness
and people do not focus on their

states, and in some countries, the

Developing States, Mr. Anwarul
K. Chowdhury, who was also at

President Jagdeo said.
According to GINA, the
President also hailed the strong
solidarity of CARICOM States
on the issue at the level of the
African, Caribbean and Pacific
(ACP) countries and the Less

He assured Guyanese
that the Government is trying its
best to prepare for the possible
implementation of the proposal.
Government has embarked on a
plan to keep the industry alive,
inclusive of a US$135M Skeldon
Modernisation Project, but the
cuts would affect this plan.
"In fact, our

advanced beyond any other
CARICOM country because
years ago, we saw the possibility
of these changes. NeVertheless,
if these reforms go through, they
would still create severe
hardships and we are there
lobbying all the time," he said.

also urged-persons who do not

No Guyanese listed

among the dead

Amanda Wilson in London
THE Metropolitan Police
have reported that there were
no Guyanese listed as dead or
injured following the bombing
attacks in London Thursday,
Guyana High Commission
UK Chapter First Secretary
Michael Brotherson said yes-
* terday morning.
SAt lunchtime yesterday, at
least 50 people were reported
dead, and 700 injured. About 80
were still hospitalized, 22 in a
critical condition, and several
were still trapped underground
and reported missing.
"We will continue our vigi-
lance throughout the weekend.
All information is being for-
warded to the Guyana Govern-
ment and the British High Com-
mission in Guyana," Brotherson
On Friday, a skeleton staff
responded to enquiries from
Guyanese worldwide at the
Guyana High Commission UK
Chapter, but according to the
diplomat, the mission will re-
sume full operations tomorrow.
"We have to continue living,
but remembering and paying our
respects to those who lost their
lives Thursday," Brotherson,
who survived one of the attacks,
Another Guyanese caught
in the attacks recounted his story
for the Guardian national news-
paper. Retired bus driver, Leslie
Jones, was on the underground,
just two trains behind a train that
"We stopped for 25 minutes
in the darkness, then had to walk
along the track to safety," the
72-year-old retiree said. He then
heard about the explosion on the
Number 30 bus in which 13
commuters lost their lives. Jones
drove along that route Hackney
to Marble Arch for 30 years.
"That was a lovely route,"
he reminisced.
Across the United Kingdom,
everyone was anxious for police
reports on who is behind the at-

So far, two Muslim extrem-
ist groups have claimed respon-
sibility but investigations are
continuing, as families prepare

Mood of recovery
The mood yesterday was
one of recovery in London.
The weather was good;
there was no rain the night be-
fore so a pair of chic leather san-
dals, faded jeans and a T-shirt
with the words 'just wanna have
fun' stamped on the back was
the befitting ensemble to hit
central London to hunt for the
summer bargains.
Thousands strolled city
streets, from early morning
shoppers, many of them tour-
ists, with multi-coloured shop-
ping bags to workers and
couples on their way to parks
to enjoy the fabulous weather.
Devotees of sidewalk cafes,
regular coffee, expresso and
cappuccino were out; 'open'
signs hung on laundromats,
fast food outlets; beauty sa-
lons and libraries saw normal
It was a Saturday like any
other. London's public trans-
portation system was almost
back to normal. Commuters
were a bit jittery, but were still
out in numbers. The initial fear

of tourists fleeing the capital
for their respective homelands
was needless. Major shopping
zones, including 'Oxford Cir-
cus, were crowded with tour-

National newspapers with

the blasts dominated front pages.
And of course, the hourly news
up-date could be heard from in-
side some stores and cafes along
city streets.
At 7 p.m., nightlife was
buzzing. Bars and restaurants

Cuban sun

President extends
condolences on
bombing deaths
(GINA) President Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday sympathised
with Cuba and Haiti on the losses caused by Hurricane
Dennis. Dennis swept through the region, killinglO per-
sons in Cuba and 22 in Haiti.
"We are going to try to help in whatever way we can. Of
course, our sympathies go out to the families who have lost
lives and of course to those countries too. This is a seasonal
thing and it puts tremendous strain on their economies as every
hurricane season they have to deal with this," he said.
The President also strongly condemned the recent terrorist
acts that killed about 50 people in London. Several persons re-
main missing and searches are ongoing.
"It is reprehensible. We have a clear position that ter-
rorism is intolerable. It should not be used as a justifica-
tion for any cause. We unequivocally condemn the terror-
ist act in London and express our sympathies with the Brit-
ish Government and people. We are constantly in solidar-
ity with all the peoples of the world who have been victims
of terrorism," he said.

grained in the social structure of
the society but because of its
physicality and its
'recognisability'. Members of
a racial group carry with them
the physical print of the racial
category to which they were as-
signed wherever they go and
however high they may climb.
There are certain other
features that are common to the
plantation society and during
the period under consideration
British Guiana displayed these
features also. Wolf and Mintz
[1957] presented the conditions
that were necessary to initiate
the plantation system and those
that were necessary for its con-
tinuity. The "initiating condi-
tions" include:
sufficient liquid capital to
secure the other factors of pro-
duction (e.g. land, labour, fixed
capital, etc),
a large and fertile acreage
of land that would facilitate
large scale production and allow
for possible expansion,
a large supply of cheap
labour to allow for the
maximisation of profit,
appropriate technological
sophistication that is suitable
for large scale exploitation and
for the transportation of labour,
machinery, raw materials and

- produce -and-finished consumer -
political and legal power
that would allow for the distri-
bution of profit and also for the
maintenance of a disciplined
work force.
However, the success
of the enterprise depended on
certain conditions that would
make "continued operation" fea-
sible. These include:
a sustainable supply of
capital which the plantation
must be able utilise for the en-
hancement of its production
and productivity capabilities,
an industrial market that
is large enough to buy the
plantation's produce at a
favourable price,
the availability of appro-
priate space to allow for physi-
cal expansion,
the utilisation of improved
technology to facilitate more ef-
ficient resource exploitation and
also to allow for the realisation
of higher levels of profitability,
an oversupply of labour
that would allow for the regula-
tion of wages to the advantage
of the plantocracy,
a rigid control of the
labour force which includes.the
use of state and military power
to repress even the legitimate
claims and aspirations of the
working classes.
Lloyd Best [1968] ob-
served that the plantation is
structurally part of an "overseas
economy." It is on the periph-
ery of the emerging capitalist

-world system and-one of- its
primary functions is to service
the needs of the metropolitan
mother country which provides
initiative, capital, technical and
managerial skills, markets and
other services. The nineteenth-
century British economist, John
Stuart Mill, described the West
Indies as a place '...where En-
gland finds it convenient to
carry on the production of
sugar, coffee and a few other
tropical commodities' [see
Greaves 1959: 16]. Much of the
wealth generated from the plan-
tation did not remain there but
served to promote
industrialisation and develop-
ment in Britain [Williams:
Initially, the owners of
the plantations lived on their
plantations in Guiana but by the
1830s the owners returned to
Britain whence they employed
attorneys, managers and over-
seers to administer the affairs of
the plantation on their behalf.
Some of these "absentee land-
lords" used the wealth gained
from the plantations to pur-
chase estates and to acquire
peerages in Britain. They also
began to invest in shipping,
procurement of supplies and
other enterprises directly or in-
directly linked to sugar. This
action contributed to Britain's
capitalistic designs and at the
same time deepened the depen-
dency of the plantation system
on the metropolitan centre. It
also favourably positioned the

- -absentee planter: class now-liv--
ing in Britain to lobby, politi-
cally, commercially and other-
wise, in the interest of their plan-
tations in Guiana and other parts
of the British West Indies.
Not withstanding this
dependence on and asymmetri-
cal relationship with the metro-
politan centre, R. T. Smith
[1967] and later George'
Beckford [1972] employed
Erving Goffman's [1961] "total
institution" in an effort to place
the plantation society in an-
other theoretical framework. In
this regard, R. T. Smith saw the
plantation as well-defined in
terms of social and physical
boundaries and a hierarchical
structure that circumscribed the
relationship of the various
groups of which it was com-
posed. The workers were seen
as inmates who were managed
by a small supervisory staff.
The power relations, roles, ex-
pectations, etc. were clearly de-
fined. Further, those who were
brought into the plantation ar-
rived as socially formed human
beings. However, they were
forced to re-socialise and in the
process, the old self had to die
so that a new identity could be
imposed. Beckford added that
the plantation is a total eco-
nomic and social institution
"because it is omnipotent and
omnipresent in the lives of those
living within its confines" [1972:
The plantation pro-
vided the main, source of em-
ployment and those who
laboured on the plantation pro-
vided a market for goods. Thus,
not only the workers depended
on the plantation for their live-
lihood but so did the retailers
and by extension the merchants.
Importantly also, British manu-
facturers: and other businesses
benefited not only from the raw
materials e.g. cane sugar pro-
duced by the plantation but
they also benefited from the.
market provided by the popu-
lation living there.
The wealthy planters
and attorneys, representing
principals residing abroad, domi-
nated. the society. They had
political power because they
sat in the Court of Policy which
allowed them to influence what
was to be done in the colony.
They dominated the College of

-Financial Representatives-which "
gave them control over local
public revenue. They had the
power to decide on taxation and
on the wages of public officials.
The managers, though
less influential than the planters
and attorneys, were also very
powerful. Their role as justices
of the peace and also their day
to day administration of the
plantations gave them direct
control over hundreds of work-
ers of different races and cul-
tures. Highlighting the impor-
tance of the managers and the
influence they wield, one writer
of that period noted:
'The word manager
means a whole pageful of such
words as favours, conveniences,
power and autocracy. All kinds
of privileges and things desirable
are in his gift ... At his word
hundreds laugh or cry, from his
dictum there is no appeal. Abe-
nevolent providence has placed
labour, homes, surroundings,
and life moral, social and other-
wise of hundreds in his hands'
[see B. Moore 1987: 53].
The planters, attorneys
and managers seem to have
spread their influence far and
wide and so the interest of the
plantation system they repre-
sented seem to have dominated
all other concerns. Their 'su-
preme authority.. .was reflected
in their social per-eminence
...(which)... is parallelled by
the concentration of state power
in them as a class' [ibid.].
This all-pervasive na-
ture of the plantation and the
plantocracy no doubt led R. T.
Smith and Beckford to employ
Goffman's "total institution" to
problematise it. Its dependence
on the metropolitan centre led
scholars like Thomas [1984] and
Best [1968] to see it as an ap-
pendage of the European and
later American capitalist enter-
prise. Beckford also recognized
that cultural plurality is one of
its characteristic features and
that internal social tensions are
likely to involve racial divisions.
Padilla [1960] presented it as "a
kind of class structured society."
It is this multidimensional man-
ner in which the plantation sp-
ciety is conceptualised that
makes it useful to the present
study. The all-encompassing
and eclectic nature of the plan-
tation theory of the Caribbean

and b) euien.ion Guianese o-.
ciety allows for the various lev-
els of analyN;s the present
study % would like to pursue.
ish, the Dutch, the French and
the British all had interests in
Essequibo, Demerara and
Berbice. The Europeans fought
each other in open rivalry for
these colonies which changed
hands many times.. Eventually,.
in 1831 Essequibo, Demerara
and Berbice, previously three
separate colonies, were united
under British rule and given the
name British Guiana (now
Guyana)*. 'Land of many wa-
ters,' eulogising the many rivers
and creeks, is one of the most
widely accepted translation of
Guiana which is rooted in the
language of one of the native
peoples whom the Europeans
encountered on their arrival.
Synthesising existing
evidence, Rouse concluded that
human beings occupied this
space sometime before A.D. 900
which was long before the fif-
teenth-century maritime activi-
ties of the West. The present-
day Warraus are among the de-
scendants of those ancient
peoples [see Menezes 19791.
The original inhabit-
ants of Guiana (* In this study,
the old spelling Guiana would
be maintained when referring to
events that had occurred be-
tween 1831 and 1905). did not
constitute a homogenous popu-
lation. Judging from their
present-day descendants, differ-
entiation existed at various lev-
els. These include languages,
customs, methods of worship-
ping and so on. It would ap-
pear that inter-group rivalry and
conflicts were not unknown.
Thus, even before the arrival of
the Europeans, there existed:in
these parts, antagonistic rela-
tions between different peoples.
While they were .more-nomadic
than settled there is evidence of
sustained habitation of specific
areas by specific groups. There-
fore. residential segregation w as
practised before the coming of
the Europeans. There is also
evidence of, organised commu-
nity life, a commitment to which
they were willing to defend.

Barama Housing Inc. has submitted an application to the Environmental Protection
Agency for Environmental Authorization, to undertake a Sustainable Logging
Operation in the Cuyuni Area.

This project will entail logging operations that includes: roads, bridges alid culvert
construction; felling of timber, bucking and skidding. Logs will be loaded to trucks and
transported from the concession to Pine Tree Landing-where they will be loaded onto
barges and taken by tugs to Buck Hall or Land of Canaan for processing. The processed
lumber would be used for value added production such as housing construction as well as
for the export market.

In accordance with the Environmental Protection Act, No. 11, 1996, an Environmental
Impact Assessment (EIA) is required for the Barama housing Inc. before any decision to
approve or reject this proposed project is taken, since this development may have
significant impacts on the environment.

they do not do this, then they would not have enough money
to buy fuel the next time to keep the electricity on," the Presi-
dent explained.
He noted that additional monies were also provided to the
'Guyana Water Incorporated to keep.the rates down, and a spe-
cial waiver is now in place to ensure pensioners do not pay the
high cost of water, GINA reported.
The taxes on gasoline and dieseline have been adjusted to keep
the balance, as these are major concerns, the President said, but it
is still impossible for consumers not to feel the impact.
'This would have a major impact. It is costing so many things.
The capital programme is going to be more expensive," he said.
The President said the rising fuel prices are due to the in-
creased demands from large economies such as India and Chinj:
the instability in the Middle East; and the recent hurricane
threats to the US refineries.
"It is a major problem for.us. We are struggling at the
Government level to keep things normal," he said, while
assuring that there would be no lines this time around.

Bermuda in the big league

By Oliver Brett

IF every citizen of Bermuda
sat down for a match at the
world's biggest cricket sta-
dium Eden Gardens in
Calcutta the arena would
barely be half full.
- So the tiny Atlantic island's
feat in qualifying for the 2007
World Cup is something that
can be applauded as warmly as
Bangladesh's recent defeat of

things entirely their own way in
the ICC Trophy in Ireland.
They avoided the group of
death which included Scotland,
Canada and Holland but came
up against the Irish in their first

The hosts scored more
than 300 and in the
Bermudan reply skipper Clay
Smith pulled a hamstring
which kept him out of the
next four matches.
But they responded with
victories against the UAE, Den-
mark and last year's Champions
Trophy debutants the USA to
gain a vital spot in the semi-fi-
Coached by Gus Logie, the
former West Indies batsman and
coach, Bermuda can now start
planning for cricket's biggest
Team manager Elvin James
told BBC Sport: "We are ec-
static. It's really exciting and the

guys cheered with joy after we
beat the USA.
"The crowning glory was
when one of the ICC officials
put his hand on my shoulder

Bermuda made light of the
early loss of captain Clay
and told me: 'You're on the
way to the World Cup'.
"We are going to enjoy
the drive down to Dublin for
the semifinals now, because

Introduced by English set-

in Bermuda.
Since 1901, the East have
played the West in an annual
match on a two-day public holi-
day that celebrates the emanci-
pation from slavery on the is-
For James, qualifying for
the World Cup is more than.,
just.looking forward to a jami
boree of cricket in the
neighboring Caribbean.
He said: "We know how big
an incentive it is for young
people in Bermuda and for
cricket in the island.
"It is something so big
for a little country that is not
competing on' the interna-
ti6nal stage.
"And with the'funding from
the ICC we are expecting to
play in some more international
tournaments now."
Bermuda's hero in Ire-
land was Janeiro Tlcker, who

\ onJuly7,2000.



This day is remembered and quietly kept
No words are needed, we shallnever forget
For those we love don't go away
They walk beside us everyday
Unseen and unheard, but always near
So loved, so missed, and so very dear



Four years have passed since God saw you getting weaker
And a healing was not to be
So He put His arms around you and whispered "Come to Me"
With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away
Although we loved you dearly we could not make you stay
A loving heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best
We never asked for miracles
SBut today just one would do
To see the door pushing open and you walking through
If we could have one lifetime wish
One dream that could come true
We would wish with all our hearts for yesteryears and you
May her soul rest in peace
S Will always be remembered by her loving
husband, father, brothers, sisters, nieces,
nephews, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, aunt,
uncles, cousins and friends.



^ Sadly missed by his children, Winston,
SMillicent, Wesley, Winifred, Lloyd, Michael

T HIS week, I want to give you some Life
Coaching tips so that you can dip into it
at any free moment throughout your
day. Whenever you feel the need for a shot of
inspiration, just try one of these life-coaching
tips and start to turn your life around. Why not
start today!

Self-confident people have indestructible self-belief; noth-
ing can take away their feeling of self-worth and they bounce
back again and again. You can feel like this. You have all that it
Stakes to go for what you want and to ride the ups and downs
that life inevitably brings. No one has a smooth trip, but just
think how you will feel if you don't even give yourself a chance
to get out there and give things a try!

Self-belief checklist
A person with self-belief:
Never compares themselves with others.
Knows that they are their own man or woman and that
nobody else can understand he or she as well

Listens to helpful advice and com-

Sherry Bollers-Dixon

Trusts their instincts and listens to their heart.
Recognises that they will make mistakes and learns from
them and moves on,
Depends upon their own judgement and always gives them-
selves time to work things through.
Values rest and relaxation as much as action planning and
Knows that when they are calm and focused they will
make the best decisions.
Accepts that there will be days when their self-beliefs are
not so strong and will wait until they are feeling more positive
before committing themselves to any course of action.

S When you are high in self belief, you will trust your .
own thoughts and feelings and will be able to follow through
w ith appropriate action.

If our lives are cluttered with material objects, we feel psy-
chologicall crowded, with no space to think and relax. We can
bnng order out of chaos by simplifying the way that we live
and tus leads to an increase in mental clarity and lowers our
stress levels.
An ancient universal law states that to bring more abun-
dance into our lives we first have to create room to allow our-
sel'.es to receive this new prosperity. Whilst we hang on to the
redundant and useless articles that surround us, we are meta-
physicall\ hanging on to old energy patterns and past limita-
Take that closet full of clothes for example. Why are you
keeping items that you will never wear and know for sure that
you i ill never wear again?
Check out your sentimental attachment to that old skirt/
trousers/coat/bag etc. And why are you keeping that dress that
was always too small for you? Every time you look at clothes
that don't fit you and never will, you will always undermine
-your body confidence (it's enough to make you reach for the
,biscuit tin).
Don't let the past hold you back. If you haven't worn
something for the last three years, chuck it away! How can we
\w welcome the new and the good if we have nowhere to put it?
Let go of the old and welcome the new!

What is the difference between people who make things hap--
pen and those who just seem to have things happen to


Them? Why can one person create new directions for themselves
whilst another always seems to be the victim of

Circumstances? The difference lies in their ability to make deci-
': How do you feel about making decisions? Would you de-
, cnbe your decision-making powers as:
S: Good?
'Not so good?
Can't decide?
When we are not feeling our best, our self-respect plum-
mets and it becomes very hard to trust our judgement. One way
to overcome this is to use a rather clever strategy. IDA is a
simple formula that you can use whenever you are uncertain
about what to decide and therefore how to act. IDA represents
the following process:

You can't act if you can't decide how to act, and you can't
make a decision unless you know what you intend to happen.
Discover your intention by asking yourself, 'What do I want
to happen?' Then decide how you need to change your
behaviour by acting differently.
When you know what you want you will make things hap-

S Think of a time when your emotion ran away with you.

Did )ou -sa\ wha \)ou wanted to say? Did you act the way
)ou wanted to act' Did you get the result you wanted? The
answ\\ers \%ere probably 'no'. It's hard to remain clear and
in control u hen you are feeling hot and bothered. Here is
a brilliant exercise that will cool you out. Try it before
you laugh at it; it really works!
The emotion cooler:
1. Put your right thumb over your right
nostril, just lightly closing it off.

2. Exhale. Inhale slowly through your left
no.tril only for twenty complete breaths. Keep
Your mouth closed all the time. Make the breaths
as long and smooth as you can. Each time you
exhale let go of all tension, hurt, anger, irritability
and an\ other negative emotions.
Visualise these emotions draining out of your
body .o that you feel clear and positive.
3. You may have to excuse yourself for a
Sfew moments to do this. It's very useful
during a heated telephone discussion
when it is possible to do it without
being detected.
Research show that
physiological and psychological
S states are reflected in the way that we
breathe. By controlling which nostril
is functioning we can tune into the
difference hemispheres of the brain.
When we breathe through our left
nostril we are connecting with the
right side of our brain, which controls
our receptive, spiritual and inner
Try it now, before the heat is on,
and feel the difference in your
relaxation levels.

What does it mean to nurture yourself?
Do you nurture yourself?
How do you treat yourself?

Think of the way you would treat a small helpless
child. You would feed her if she was hungry and comfort
her if she was crying. If she made a mistake you would
forgive her and if she fell over you would pick her up and
help her back .on her feet. You would encourage her in
every way you knew. She is free to make mistakes because
this is how she learns. You know that this child will
develop through love and support and that she will not
develop and learn if she is criticised.

Now answer the following questions:
Do you treat yourself in this caring way?
Do you love and encourage yourself?
Do you help yourself up when you fall and comfort your-
self when you are sad?
Do you forgive yourself when you make a mistake?

We find it so difficult to treat ourselves in this loving and
nurturing way. Decide to nurture yourself for a day and see
how it goes. Say the following affirmation to yourself through-
out the day.

AFFIRMATION: I deserve love and care.
Try to make sure that every thought or action of the day is
one that supports and encourages you. Remember how you
would treat that small child? Well treat yourself in exactly the
same way.
Nurture yourself for a day and the habit may grow.

I look forward to sharing some more tips with you next
week. Until then, let's hope that the bombing in London
stops. It's a very difficult time for all of us living in En-
gland at the moment. God bless.

HE food you eat, how
much of it and even
when you eat it has an
affect on your teeth and
gums. Like the rest of your
body, the teeth, bones, and
soft tissue of your mouth
need proper nourishment and
stimuli to stay healthy. There
is no such thing as a healthy
body with a mouth that has
dental disease. Whenever you
encounter dental problems,
consider your diet because a
balanced one is highly impor-
tant to your dental health.
What is a balanced diet? A
balanced diet is a daily intake of
food and drink that provides
you with enough proteins, car-
bohydrates (starches and sugar),
fats, vitamins, minerals and wa-
ter for your health needs. Pro-
teins, vitamins and minerals, es-
pecially calcium, phosphate and
fluoride, are needed during
childhood for strong decay re-
sistant teeth. Actually, teeth be-
gin to develop months before
birth, so expectant mothers

need diets that provide enough
of these nutrients for baby's
teeth too.
In adults, a lack of certain
nutrients may be a factor in pe-
riodontal (gum) disease which
is the main cause of tooth loss
in mature men and women. Poor
nutrition does not actually
cause periodontal disease, but it
may enable the disease to
progress whereas an adequate
intake of ascorbic acid (vitamin
C) and B complex vitamins, and
a good calcium /phosphorous
balance may support periodon-
tal health.

The 'Guide for daily food
selections' classifies food as
Group 1: fruits and veg-
Group 2: bread and cereal.
Group 3: milk
Group 4: meat, fish, eggs,
and nuts.

Adults generally require
daily four servings from Group

1 and 2 along with two servings
from Group 3 and 4. Pregnant
women and children under the
age of 12 require at least three
servings from Group 3, while
teenagers and nursing mothers
at least four daily servings of
the same group. Your physician,
dentists or dietitian may take
special recommendations based
on your own individual exigen-
You may want to ask about
butter, margarine, salad dress-
ings, syrups, honey, jam,
sweets, cakes, pastries and al-
cohol drinks because they do
not seem to be in any of the four
groups. These are among the
"extras". They are not neces-
sary for balanced diet. Many
people have to avoid them al-
together. In any event, for good
health, their use should be lim-
The foods you choose and
your dieting schedule can be
consequential factors in how
much dental caries (tooth decay)
you have. The reason is simple.

Everything you eat passes
through your mouth where it is
available for plaque. Dental
plaque is a thin film of bacteria
and slime that forms on
everyone's teeth between
brushings. When you eat foods
that contain sugar and starches,
the bacteria in plaque start to
produce acids that attack tooth
enamel. The plaque holds these

The Dentist Advises

acids on your teeth where they
can keep attacking the enamel
for 20 minutes or more every
time you eat. Sooner or later, the
tooth enamel may breakdown
and you will have the beginning
of a cavity.
But then you might ask
whether "or not you should
give up eating sugar and
starches in order to avoid
cavities. It would be hard to
avoid sugar and starches
entirely. Frequent brushing

and dental care will stop
dental caries. Finally, get
into the habit of reading food
labels. If the sugar (sucrose,
fructose, glucose, maltose,
lactose) is the first ingredient
listed, try to eat that food as
part of meal and not as snack.
By reading food labels, you
will become more aware of
the nutritional content of
particular food items and the
place they should have in
your diet.

Character Traits
A character's traits are aspects of his or her
personality. These are revealed by what the
character thinks, does, and says. The revela-
tion of character traits can be a powerful tool
used by the author as a help in moving the story
along. As you identify character traits and see
how they are revealed, it helps you to determine
the influence these traits have on the develop-
ment of the story.

Read the passage below, and then answer
questions about the traits of the character.
Mr. Cook strapped his three-year old toddler
into the car seat, making sure the child's belt
was fastened securely.
"Daddy, I forgot my robotV" the little girl cried out
Mr. Cook knew this robot was plastic and could
do some harm if the car came to a sudden stop.
He went into the house and came back with a
colourful stiffed toy.
"Take your clown, Junie. He's safer in the car."
Mr. Cook looked under his car to be sure there
was nothing in his path like a stray toy or a
neighbourhood pet or even a child. Then he got

After looking in both directions, Mr. Cook care-

3. What year was MCMXLIX? 1949
Write the Roman numeral for each:
1557 = MDLVII

Let us first look over the types of fractions.
If the top number of a fraction is less than its bot-
tom number, the fraction is called a proper frac-
tion. Thus, 5/8; 2/7; 4/9 are all proper fractions.

It must also be recalled that a proper fraction has
a value less than 1.

See that 5/8 is less than the whole; 2/7 is less than
the whole; 4/9 is less than the whole.

The whole in each case is 8/8; 7/7; 9/9.

Again, if the top number of a fraction is greater than
its bottom number, then the fraction is called an
improper fraction. Thus 3/2; 7/4; 9/5 are all im-
proper fractions.
The improper fraction is called the top heavy frac-
tion. It is always carrying a higher number as its
upper number.
Thus 1 ; 1 %; and 1 4/5 are all top heavy, or im-
proper, fractions.

Every top heavy fraction can be written or ex-
pressed.as a whole number and a proper fraction.
These are sometimes called mixed numbers.
Thus 1 2; 1 %; and 1 4/5 are all mixed numbers.
Remember that in order to change or convert a top
heavy fraction to a mixed number what is usually
done is to divide the top number by the bottom
number. That is very important to remember.
When you divide the top number by the bottom
number in a vulgar fraction, you will see how they
carry a value of more than 1.

Remember that

top number = top number
bottom number bottom number


Express 17/7 as a mixed number.
17/7 = 23/7
(because 17 7 = 2 and remainder 3)

From the example above you can see that.you con-
vert an improper fraction into a mixed number by
dividing the bottom into the top number.

Notice that the remainder becomes the top num-
ber in the fractional part of the mixed number. To,
change a mixed number into an improper fraction,
you need to multiply the whole number by the bot-
tom number of the fractional part.

To this you need to add the numerator of the frac-
tion fractional part and this sum then becomes the
top number of the improper fraction. Its bottom
number is the same as the bottom number of the
fractional part of the mixed number.

Express 5 7/9 as an improper (top heavy) fraction.
= (5 X 9) + 7

= 45+7

Work out these improper fractions below as mixed


Do the reverse. Express each of the following
mixed numbers as improper fractions.



Do you remember that the decimal system is an
extension of our ordinary number system? Let's
hope that you do remember or else it will not be
so easy for you..

When we write the number 222, we mean 200 +
20 + 2. Is that right? Yes!

Reading from left to right each figure is ten times
the value of the next one. Is that also remem-
bered? How can that be forgotten?

We now have to decide to learn how to deal with
fractional qualities whose values are less than 1.
Let us look at 555.555. It can mean 500 + 50 + 5
+ 5/10 + 5/100 + 5/1000. The dot called the deci-
mal point, separates the whole numbers from the
fractional parts, e.g. the .555, each figure 5 is ten
times the value of the following figure, reading from
left to right.

Thus 5/10 is ten times as great as 5/100, and 5/
100 is ten times as great as 5/1000 and so on.

Decimals are fractions

You have seen from above that decimals are
fractions which have denominators of 10, 100,
1000, and so on. All this is in accordance with
the position of the figure after the decimal

Let us look at this bit of reasoning. If we have to
write three hundred and seven, we write 307; the
7 keeps the units place, the 0 keeps the tens place,
and the 6 keeps the hundreds place.

In the same way if we want to write 5/10 + 6/1000
+ we write .506; the zero keeping the place for the
missing tens. In the same way if we want to write
5/10 + 6/1000 we write .506; the zero keeping the
place for the missing hundredths.

Also, there is one other thing to understand at this
point of your learning. When there are no whole
numbers it is usual to insert a zero in front of the
decimal point so that for instance, .75 would be
written 0.75.

We will go this over next week for you. Do not
worry if you have not grasped deeply enough to be

Seaman who killed lover escaped gallows....

N 1985, seaman Rohit Lall
returned from sea and found
that his girlfriend, Maylene
Arjune Ramrattan, was a visi-
tor to an ocean-going ship at
Port Georgetown where sail-
ors were the chief attraction.
This discovery sparked a
row between Lall and Maylene
on November 17, during which
the latter was flung down a
stairs of her Agricola, East Bank
Demerara home, to a concrete
basement below, resulting in her
receiving a fractured skull. She
subsequently died in hospital.
Lall, who denied pushing
the woman down the stairs as
alleged by prosecution wit-
nesses, claimed that she had
slipped and fell, but police in-
vestigators found otherwise.
He was arrested and charged
with murder.
,However a mixed jury at
the Demerara Assizes in 1987,

from the fact or facts you find
to be proved.
"Therefore, if from any cir-
cumstance or set of circum-
stances, inferences can be drawn
with equal reasoning, one of
which is favourable to the ac-

must draw that inference that is
favourable to him.

Maylene lying on the last two
concrete steps and her two sis-
ters screaming. I held her and I
saw that she was bleeding
through the nose. As a result I
put her down and went to get a

MARGARETH MENEZES, the Jazz/Samba/Reggae singer and

LL the great Jazz
artistes first
became known by
play-on stage in Jazz Bars/
Cafes. The Jazz Bar/Caf6
offers two essential
opportunities for the
popularity and recording of
upcoming musicians. (1) By
constantly appearing live on
stage in a relaxed
atmosphere their talents are
verified and spread by word-
of-mouth. (2) Members of
the audience may include
anonymous but influential
club-owners, musicians and
producers who may like the
artistry they hear and see,
resulting in friendships,
more club dates elsewhere,
and record deals for the new
Jazz artistes.
Such Jazz Bars/Cafes in re-
ality became popular enough to
remain open indefinitely, due to
the music, food and drink they
offered. In the U.S.A., South
America, Canada, and Europe,
such Jazz Bars with names like
'Three Deuces', 'Famous
Door', 'Spotlite', 'Birdland',
'Minton's, 'Uptown House',

'Bottles Bar', 'Vinicius', 'Blue

Montmartre', 'The Colonial',
'The Senator', 'The Rex', 'The

have become legendary places of
pleasure in such countries, be-
cause of the Jazz heard there.
For the past four decades,
the absence of substantial Jazz
Bars/Cafes in Guyana meant
that: (1) Neither local nor for-
eign Jazz artistes could perform
for at least a week in a relaxed
close-up public environment.
(2) Developing local Jazz
artistes had no exciting nightly
opportunity to display, or bet-
ter their skills, while creating in-
terest and popularity among a
local audience. Yet, comfortable
and spacious, extremely popu-
lar and well-managed nightclubs
and restaurants, like 'Belved-
ere', 'Wagonwheel', 'Pent-
house', 'Bamboo Gardens',
'Rendezvous', 'Diabolique',
'Flambeau', 'Europa', '77 Sun-
set Strip', once flourished in
Georgetown. Amazingly, over
those past decades, Guyana's
capital received some of the
greatest international Jazz
groups and vocalists, such as
Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington,
Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, Joe
Williams, Nancy Wilson,
Johnny Mathis, Sammy Davis
Jr., Ahmad Jamal, Elvin Jones,
Chick Corea and others.

However, the only places
they could perform were in
cinemas, Queen's College,

atmosphere was too stiff and
official. Yet, many of these
international celebrities
enjoyed being in Guyana.
Cab Calloway said he
enjoyed walking around
Georgetown's wide, shady

avenues on his way to the
Plaza Cinema where he
performed. Sammy Davis Jr.
so enjoyed Guyana he
extended his stay and show at
Queen's College for almost a
week; Johnny Mathis had a
ball at the Empire Cinema
night after night; and Chick
Corea even found time to jam

I T'S that time of year
again. It's summer
in the Northern
Hemisphere and for lov-
ers of warm weather,
this is as good as it
The first day of summer is
the date with the longest day-
light period and hence with the
shortest night. This date usually
falls on June 21 or 22 in the
-Northern Hemisphere (or De-
cember 21 or 22 in the Southern
This year 2005, summer of-
ficially began on June 21, in the
Each sun-soaked summer
day usually begins around 5.30
am and lasts until around 8 pm.
However, after the first day of

summer, subsequent days get
imperceptibly shorter, until
Winter Solstice or the beginning
of Winter, which is the shortest
day of the year. After Winter
Solstice, the age-old cycle begins
its eternal rotation again.
Unofficially, the summer sea-
son began on Memorial Day,
May 30, the first popular holi-
day. Many families brought their
grills out of the long winter stor-
age and cooked the first burgers
of the season.
Department stores began
to do brisk business, selling
backyard and patio furniture,
grills, air-conditioners and
fans of every size and descrip-
tion, long before the start of
the season.
On the streets, snow cone
and shaved ice kiosks have
sprouted everywhere; enterpris-
ing youngsters hawk ice-cold
bottled water and fruit juice to
passing motorists at busy inter-

Fresh produce stands have
also sprung up along popular
streets and open lots offering
fresh-from-the-farm fruits and
vegetables at tempting prices.
Likewise, large tents have been
set up on parking lots to sell fire-
works, much to the chagrin of
dog owners and law enforcement
authorities. Because dogs hear at
a higher pitch and have more
sensitive ears than humans, they
go berserk when firecrackers are
set off. The loud explosions are
painful to their hearing. Although
it is illegal to set off certain
types-of fireworks, this does not
impede the trade in or use of the
devices. Law enforcement au-
thorities often apprehend the
most blatant offenders.
Most summer days are
awash in golden sunshine, with
clear, cloudless skies. These are
the days immortalised in stan-
dards such as Gershwin's, 'Sum-

mertime, and the living is
easy...' Nat King Cole also
crooned of these lazy, hazy,
crazy days of summer.
Summer brings long, hot, hu-
mid days, during which tem-
peratures can climb into the
"high nineties." Physical activity
in these conditions for extended
periods can result in heat exhaus-
tion, heat stroke, or even death.
Heat advisories warn the vulner-
able to stay in the shade and
many towns offer refuge to the
elderly and the infirm at commu-
nity recreation centres, where
there is adequate cooling.
On the brighter side,
summer brings ball games
and backyard barbecues,
swimming, picnics in the park
and open-air concerts by
favourite artistes. It's that
time when people pack their
bags, passports, cameras, cool-
ers, and lawn chairs and travel
from everywhere to every-

where. They go on tours, visit
theme parks, buy postcards,
tee-shirts and souvenirs, take
zillions of photographs, eat
and drink too much, and en-
gage in mostly fun, family-
oriented, activities.
Summer days also bring

the season. As in the song, there
will be "soda and pretzels and
beer... ". There will also be old
favourites, such as lemonade and
iced tea, all consumed by the keg.
And, there will be fireworks
displays put on by cities and lo-
cal governments. Children and'

sudden, cooling rain showers,
thunderstorms, lightning, and
even tornadoes, but for the sun
worshippers, even these hazards
of nature do not diminish their
elation. Not even the myriad
mosquitoes, flies, gnats and other
pesky bugs can spoil the fun.
This is the time of year when
levels of serotonin, the brain
chemical which affects mood, is
at its highest. All is well in their
world, and will be for another
three months at least.
On July 4, a national holiday
to mark United States Indepen-
dence, everyone was chilling and
grilling, cooking and consuming
vast amounts of hot dogs, ham-
burgers, corn, beans, potato
salad, ribs, wings, steaks, chops,
kebabs and other traditional
American favourites.

O ICil July 1 0 2005





By Ruel Johnson


There is the story about
Diogenes, the Greek Philoso-
pher, who in response to
Plato's definition of man as
"featherless and bipedal" -:
plucked a chicken, brought it
to Plato and declared "Here is
Plato's man."
The problems associated
with definition have been around
since human beings evolved the
ability to doubt, and the Non-
Governmental Organisation
(NGO) sector in Guyana is not
immune to them. When the'
United Nations Development
Programme (UNDP) in Guyana
decided to compile a register of.
NGOs in 1992, the central prob-
lem the contracted researchers -

Under that definition, more
than 300 NGOs were docu-
mented by the project, an initia-
tive the UNDP Partners in De-
velopment Programme had un-
dertaken in collaboration with
the Department of International
Economic Cooperation (DIEC)
within the-Ministry of Finance.
According to a Duke Uni-
versity Perkins Library NGO
Research Guide,
"The World Bank classifies
operational NGOs into three
main groups: i) community-
based organizations (CBOs) -
which serve a specific popula-
tion in a narrow geographic area;
ii) national organizations which
operate in individual developing
countries, and; iii) international
organizations which are typi-
cally headquartered in developed
countries and carry out opera-
tions in more than one develop-
ing country."

For example, a community-
based organisation can have a
fairly broad mandate that allows
it to cover health, cultural, eco-
nomic as well as other social is-
sues, while a national or interna-
tional NGO quite often has a
singular focus like HIV/AIDS
or Gender Development.
The question of genesis,
however, is the more challenging
one in the contemporary milieu.
Traditionally, what we term
NGOs have been birthed or ini-
tiated out a particular social
need. For example, coming out
of the turmoil which gripped
Guyana after the February 2002
jailbreak, a group of women came
together in January of 2003 -
to speak out against the increas-
ing violence pervading the soci-
ety. Today, the group has con-
solidated into an NGO called
Women Against Violence Every-
where (WAVE), the rallying cry

In addition to inter-linking,
NGOs have also been in the
habit of spawning other NGOs.
The Iwokrama Rainforest
Project initiated the NRDDB;
the GRPA has a youth club
which operates with a fair
amount of autonomy; and one of
the more vibrant youth NGOs a
few years ago, the Rights of the
Child (ROC) group was a spe-
cial initiative of the Guyana Hu-
man Rights Association
Another dynamic to be con-
sidered in the genesis and evolu-
tion of NGOs today has to do
-with the availability of funding.
Traditionally, a fledgling NGO
incorporated a system of mem-
bership fees, fundraising activi-
ties and donor support to carry
on its activities; put simply, the
existence of the entity was the
basis for funding. Today with
international financial

CEMCO had was deciding
what it was that actually consti-
tuted an NGO. It was decided
that the better thing to do was
to go for a broad definition as
opposed to a narrow one, which
"[An NGO is defined as] an
Association of people who come
together for a common purpose
which has viable objectives. It
may be project-oriented but not
project-defined. That is, it
should not only be organised to
carry out a project at the end of
which it goes out of existence.
Also it should not be seen as a
"business". While it may earn
profits these should be as-
signed to the consolidation and/
or of the organisation, including
increased benefits to its mem-
bers, but not to the enrichment
of its directors or its functionar-
ies. It may be formed to advance

In Guyana, the North
Rupununi District Development
Board (NRDDB) is classifiable
as a CBO although it does not
represent a single community
but several (Amerindian) com-
munities across the Rupununi.
The Guyana Responsible
Parenthood Association (GRPA)
one of the oldest NGOs in
Guyana is an example of a na-
tional organisation. From its in-
ception in 1975, it has worked
closely with governmental health
programmes particularly in the
areas of sexual and reproductive
health, implementing its
programmes all over the country.
There are several interna-
tional NGOs based in Guyana,
and seemingly their numbers
have been increasing exponen-
tially during the past decade.
Across these basic types,
the NGO sector can best be de-
scribed as illustrating a complex
interplay of sub-classifications,
roles and situations of genesis.

of the original protest action.
Not all NGO geneses .are
that straightforward a variety
of complex factors influence why
and how NGOs are formed, and
how they evolve. One of the
better-funded non-governmental
organizations, the Volunteer
Youth Corps, actually came out
of a 1996 action initiative spon-
sored by the Ministry of Health.
The original purpose of the
VYC was to motivate young
people to contribute to the de-
velopment of the national health
sector. Today, the VYC has di-
versified. In addition to its origi-
nal health focus (it was one of
eight core members of the quasi-
NGO, the Guyana HIV/AIDS
STI Youth Project), the
organisation now has what it re-
fers to as a social programme. It
is the official affiliate
organisation for the international
Youth Employment Summit; as
well as for Big Brothers, Big Sis-
ters International.

organizations and donor coun-
tries pumping hundreds of mil-
lions of development dollars into
the local economy that situa-
tion has, to a great degree, been
reversed. Numerous NGOs have
been formed in recent times to
capture the deluge of funds -
particularly in the HIV/AIDS
sector; and others have diversi-
fied or in some cases completely
scrapped their original mission
to be where the funding is. An-
other dimension to this is that
foreign funding aid has also at-
tracted international NGOs to
these shores often on invita-
tion from donor countries, and
just as often on their own initia-
The web of NGO activity in
Guyana has become increasingly
complex in the post 1992-period,
perhaps attributable to govern-
ment reengagement with the in-
ternational community as well
increased social freedoms. And
while this has been a largely

positive development, this activ-
ity much like the television
broadcasting boom that prevailed
in the mid to late 1990s the
sudden increase in size and com-
plexity of the sector, especially
in an ill-adapted framework, has
led to some degree of awkward-
ness in its operations.

In Guyana, the establish-
ment of a registered NGO is a
fairly routine thing. All that is
needed is seven people willing to
put their signatures on an appli-
cation sheet picked up from the
Co-op Department within the
Ministry of Human Services and
Labour; a Constitution for the
entity; and a $1000 registration
fee. With political pressure be-

ing removed from NGOs in the
post-1992 period, it is no won-
der that such entities flourished.
According to a second
UNDP NGO Directory under-
taken this time around by the
Guyana Volunteer Consultancy
- the number of NGOs had al-
most doubled by 1998 to around
600. There aave been no other
directories since then, so the
most accurate gauge of their
numbers has necessarily been
the Friendly Societies Registry.
Clive Nurse is the Regis-
trar of Friendly Societies, a
position catered for under the
FSA. He says that there are
currently 1048 "friendly soci-
eties" that are registered with
his department Nurse's post

is a legally mandated one ac-
cording to the Laws of
Guyana Chapter 36:04. _Un-
der the 61-page piece of leg-
islation, the Registrar of
Friendly Societies has no
small amount of power
within a well-defined frame-
work to undertake the regis-
tration and regulation of
'Friendly Societies". The re-
ality however, is far different.
Nurse says that he has one
member of staff directly under
his control as FS Registrar, and
that is only by default; the con-

fidential secretary that he has is
only afforded under his post as
Chief Co-op officer.
He is of the opinion, how-
ever, that the NGO sector has
evolved considerably while the
laws governing their regulations
have become anachronistic. And
for Nurse, it is the major area
that the legislation hasn't been
able to keep up.
Carl Brandon, Acting Di-
rector of Youth within the
Ministry of Culture, Youth
and Sport was able to shed
some light on this. Brandon
told Sunday Chronicle that
the problems associated with

NGOs in Guyana were docu-
mented eight years ago by Dr.
Henley Morgan in a USAID-
funded report entitled, Insti-
tutional Strengthening Ini-
tiative for Guyana's NGOs.
Dr. Morgan produced a
checklist of problems plagu-
ing the sector, a partial list of
which reads:

SThe concept of the NGO
and its place in civil society is
largely unlearnt or unappreci-
ated in Guyana.

From page X
with a few local musicians after his show at the Cultural
Centre, it is said. Some older, cynical Guyanese say that such
visits by Jazz stars to today's Guyana would be unthinkable
and a failure, because of the low level of intellectual interests
and social behaviour among a new generation of Guyanese.
This negative social situation seems about to change with new
local economic developments, and the large influx of Brazilian im-
migrants, young and old, to the capital, where it is hoped they will
also bring intelligent creative interests, productive ideas and a de-
sire to learn English, so that creative and economic ventures could
grow in friendly unions with Guyanese. One of the untapped areas
of such unions is the opening of Jazz Bars/Cafes where Guyanese,
Brazilian and other foreign Jazz artistes could invigorate the local
music scene on a nightly basis in a relaxed social atmosphere.
The tropical Jazz Bar/Cafe remains an essential social fea-
ture in South American cities like Rio, Sao Paulo, Bahia,
Caracas, Buenos Aires, Montevideo; Paramaribo, and others.
A brief example of the same social grace and cultural role such
places offer was hinted at locally, thanks to the recent innova-
tive Brazilian Ambassador to Guyana, Ney do Prado Dieguez,
and staff at the Centre of Brazilian Studies in Georgetown.
On numerous beautiful nights in the past year the inner
Courtyard of the Brazilian Embassy came alive in a most ex-
citing and hedonistic manner to upbeat Jazz and Folk music
combos, Jazz vocalists, and sensual tropical dancers, as tasty
tropical Hors-d'oeuvres and Brazilian wines, such as the
lusciously sweet Galliotto, an undiluted perfect blend of straw-
berry and grapes, flowed under starry skies. The social atmo-
sphere was so authentically tropical and civilised that guests
lost their inhibitions and danced in abandon to the Jazz/Samba
rhythms until their dresses and shirts were soaked with sweat.
Such civilised behaviour at diplomatic fetes should serve as a
model for similar social harmony among patrons in Guyanese
Jazz Bars/Cafes.
The social role that South American Jazz Bars/Cafes play in
both the writing and discovery of Jazz tunes which become extremely
popular was proven by many Brazilian musicians. Vinicius de
Moreas and Carlos Jobim wrote the famous Brazilian Jazz tune
'The Girl from Ipanema' by simply observing a beautiful girl with
a sexy walk on her way to the seaside each day, while they sat and
fantasised from the table of a Jazz Caf6 near the seashore. Vinicius,
a brilliant composure and musician, was also a Brazilian dip-
lomat, and would own a famous Jazz Bar/Caf6 in Rio named
after him.. Sergio Mendes and.his band not only performed at
the famous Jazz Club called the Bottles Bar in Rio, but en-
joyed hanging out at its front entrance with the sexy female danc-
ers of his band.
The Afro-Brazilian Jazz fusion singer from Bahia, Margareth
Menezes caught the eyes of American pop star David Byrne when
he saw her sing in a Bahian Jazz Bar. He invited her to tour with
him in the U.S.A. and open each of his concerts, and while over
there she recorded her beautiful album 'Elegibo', with its fusion of
Jazz/Samba/Reggae rhythms. The album spent two months at No.
1 on Billboard's World Music Chart. It was Menezes who by us-
ing certain rhythms on some of her songs oh that album, first in-
spired the famous Lambada dance craze.
There is a lesson to be learnt and developed here about
the cultural role of tropical Jazz/Bars/Cafes, and the social
values they may offer in a pleasant civilised manner.

HEW Locke's 'Cardboard Palace', exhibited at Chisenhale
Gallery, London, 2002.





UK-based sculptor Hew Locke will give a slide presentation
on his recent works at the National Gallery of Art, Castellani
House tomorrow at 18:00 hrs.
Locke's work has received critical attention in recent years, in
particular for his innovative use of materials, painted, cut, sculpted
and constructed, as in his 'Cardboard Palace', exhibited at the
Chisenhale Gallery in 2002 and his earlier exhibition, 'Hemmed in
Two' at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London in 2000.
Castellani House said in a press release Friday that he has also
exhibited in London at the Horniman Museum, the Centre for Draw-
ing, the Hales Gallery, and on the facade of the Tate Gallery (Tate
Britain), at California State University and the Atlanta Contempo-
rary Art Centre in the USA.
Locke won the Paul Hamlyn and the East International Awards
in 2000, and has work in several collections including the Charles
Saatchi Collection, the collection of Eileen and Peter Norton of Cali-
fornia, the New Art Gallery Walsall Collection and the Victoria and
Albert Museum Drawing Collection.
Locke lived in Guyana from 1966 to 1980, before returning to
the UK where he received his first degree in Fine Art from Falmouth
College of Art in 1988 and his post-graduate degree in Sculpture
from the Royal College of Art in 1994.
He is the son of two prominent artists with significant works
in the National Collection of Guyana, the Guyanese painter, sculp-
tor and writer Donald Locke, who now resides in Atlanta, Georgia,
and the late British painter and ceramist, Leila Locke, who lived for
more than three decades of her life in Guyana.
Locke leaves Guyana on Tuesday.
The public is invited to this presentation in the main first
floor gallery of Castellani House.

For vegetable production a
desirable seedbed/ nursery is
one that is not hard, yet firm
enough so that the soil particles
are in close contact with the
seed and free from trash and
vegetation that will interfere
with seedling emergence and
growth. The seedbed should
have sufficient moisture both for
seed germination and to support
the growth of the seedlings. For
small vegetable seeds the best
type of seedbed is a mixture of
two parts of sand and one part
of compost or well-rotted pen
manure. Too much dries out fast
and causes the soil to form a
crust on the surface, which is
bad for germinating seeds. Too
much compost causes the soil to
retain too much moisture and the
seedling will suffer from 'damp-
ing off' a fungal disease that at-
tacks most nursery seedlings.
The seedbed/ nursery
should be protected from the
wind, heavy rainfall, and it must
have adequate shade and water
supply for the tender seedlings.
Shade is necessary to reduce the
intensity of the sunrays, reduce
water loss by the crop and soil

and consequently reduce the
amount of stress on the seed-
lings. It is essential to have an
even amount of shade in the
nursery/seedbed. The amount of
shade could be gradually reduced
until the time of transplanting.
It is a very good practice to
sterilize the soil in the seedbed
before sowing by using chemi-
cals or hot water. Boiling water
poured onto the soil at a rate of
one water-can per square meter
of bed is enough to disinfect
that area. The bed should then
be covered immediately with a
jute bag or suitable material and
left for a few hours. All tools in
the nursery should be cleaned
so as to reduce possibility of
contamination of the soil or
crop. The width of the seedbed
is very important. If the bed is
too wide it may not be possible
to tend to seedlings in the
middle of the bed without injury
to those on the outer edge. Seed
boxes or seed trays could also
be used to produce the seed-
About four inches from the
edge of the bed make a furrow

across the width of the bed. Re-
peat this at three inches inter-
vals along the length of the seed-
bed/ seed box. The depth of the
furrow will depend on the size
of the seeds to be sown. Where
planting is done on a seedbed,
mix the seed with the quantity
of seed with about six times as
much sand; then take the sand/
seed mixture and let it slip
slowly through the finger into
the furrows. This will ensure
that the seeds are not planted
too close to each other. Cover
the furrow lightly with the soil
and press gently to ensure
proper seed/soil contact.
Water the seeds immedi-



ately after sowing. Watering
should be done lightly to avoid
the seeds being displaced or
'damping off' to occur. The
seedbed/box should then be
placed in a shade protected from
'dry' winds and sunlight.
When the seedlings emerge
they should be toughened. Plac-
ing them in the early morning or
late afternoon sunlight does this.
As the plants get older gradual
exposure to more sunlight will
prepare them for the time they
will be transplanted into the

While the seedlings re grow-
ing, preparation for transplant-
ing them must be put in place.
The area in which they will be
placed must be prepared for if
they stay too long in the nurs-
ery their productivity will de-
crease. It is best to transplant
when the plants are a few inches
high and have between three to
five leaves.

When transplanting, choose
a cloudy day or if this is not
possible transplant in the after-
noon after 4 o'clock, when the
heat of the sun is less. The
plants will then have the cool of
the night to overcome the trans-
planting shock. At least one
hour before taking out the plants
soak them thoroughly with wa-
ter to cause as much soil as
possible to cling to the roots.
When transporting them to the
site for planting, ensure that the
roots are covered and not ex-
.posed to the sun and/ or wind.
Carefully separate the plants
making sure that the roots are
not damaged.
Make a hole in the ground
make sure that it is large enough
and deep enough for the roots
and soil adhering to the roots.
Place the plant with soil
into the hole making sure that
the roots are pointing down-
wards. Make the soil firm
around the plant to force out
any air pockets but do not

Continued from last week

Symptoms rusts pustules appear on all parts of the plant.
The first symptoms are tiny, almost white slightly raised pus-
tules that become distinct, reddish brown circular sori on the
affected area. Each pustule produces a rusty powdery mass of
spores and may even cover the ground with a faint brownish
red dust. When leaves become thoroughly rushed they fall from
the plant and there is a lost in plant productivity.

Cultural All sanitary practices must be observed. The
land should be ploughed to bury all refuse.
Chemical application of a copper base fungicide.

Ashy Stem Blight
Symptoms damping off ind death of young plants result
in reduction in the number of plants. When infected seed is
planted a black sunken canker appears near the base of the coty-
ledon and spread downward into the stem and first pair of un-
folding leaves. Lesions that are sunken and brown appear later
and begin at or below the soil level and extend downward into
the roots and upward some distance into the branches. As le-
sions enlarge, they acquire a concentric pattern and weaken'the
stem at that point resulting in breakage. Many infected plants
are killed before maturity resulting in loss of yield. Infected roots
are black in appearance. Leaves may also turn yellow and stunt-
ing may follow.

Cultural use seeds from an area where the disease is ab-
sent. It is important to practice good field sanitation. Have good
drainage and proper irrigation. Soil with abundant humus is also
recommended. Practice crop rotation using non-host plants.
Chemical Treat seed with copper based fungicide to
reduce the incidence of the disease. Apply soil fumigant to re-
duce the viability of the fruiting structures. Use a soil acting

Powdery mildew
Symptoms older fruit bearing plants are most likely to
be affected by this disease and symptoms develop first on older
leaves. The most obvious is the presence of a whitish powdery
growth especially on the bottom of the leaves. The areas of
white powdery growth expand and merge until the entire leaf
surface is covered. The affected leaves can wither and die. Later,
the vines wither and become whitish from sunburn. As a result
of leaves being infected, fruit quality and production decline.
Fruits ripen prematurely, there is poor quality and texture.

Cultural have good drainage and air movements through-
.out the field. The soil should be allowed to dry between irriga-
tion periods. ",,.*. .",._ .* *' , 1 ,

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll look at What is assimilation? And
last week's review Experiment # 1 and # 2.
What is assimilation?

Human being (people) consists of all sorts of
things, but they can grow without eating other
Humans! Whatever food they eat is altered in
the body to make it ready for turning into bone,
blood and flesh. This conversation of food into
body material is called assimilation. Plants have
an even greater power of assimilation than ani-
mals, as all they need is water and some salts
from the soil, and carbon dioxide from the air!
Only a small part of the food which we eat is
built into our bodies. Most is used as fuel to
give us the energy we need for keeping warm and
moving about. The process by which energy is
obtained from food is called respiration.

Do living things respire?

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to these columns. No one will
make a good job of studying what doesn't in-
terest him/her. Make what you have to study
for your examination your interest. Keep
tapping the many sources of ideas and infor-
mation and you will get many views which
will keep your interests aroused in your sub-
ject areas.
Keep good company!


The Environment and Tourism
Benefits tourism brings to our environment and
the costs it imposes on it.
1. Tourism is about the movement of people to
destinations outside their normal place of work
or residence; and also about their activities dur-
ing their stay away from home and work.
2. Tourism is also about how the tourists' needs
are provided for until they go back to where they
came from.
3. A tourist is a traveler who stays on a visit for
a minimum of 24 hours or a maximum of one
year in a country outside the one that he/she
lives or works.
4. Tourism causes people of the host country to
take care of their environment by conservation
and preservation of its natural, cultural and his-
torical resources. . ..

Mix a little of the yeast with water and sugar in
a test-tube, and leave it for fifteen minutes to

Why must all living things reproduce?
Reproduction is essential because all living
creatures are mortal. A few kinds of tress may
live for hundreds, and in some cases, thousands
of years, but eventually
they all die. Man is one
of the longest-lived
animals, though some
tortoises live longer.
As old plants and ani-

5. Tourism makes people of the host country
environmentally conscious so fhey keep their
environment beautified and revitalized all year
6. Tourism influences rising standards of opera-
tion in many areas because there is real value in
the trade.
7. The management of parks and other sight-see-
ing places know that the quality of these impor-
tant natural and historical sites may soon be de-
graded if not properly used by tourists and other
people. Tourists need to pay attention to rules
and notices posted by such management.


The Iwokrama

Tourists will find the Iwokrama a really fasci-
nating area. The following is a list of informa-
tion tourists and other people will find out about
the Iwokrama in Guyana:
1. The Iwokrama is a part of Guyana's vast
rain forests.
2. The Iwokrama is the name given to a long
term international rainforest-project located, in-


Answers to last week's exercise (Experi-
ment # 2}.
Is it possible to cut a piece from a living plant
or animal without killing it? It impossible to cut
a piece from a living plant or animal with out
killing it but it dependence on which part of
the animal you are cutting a piece from with-
out causing harming it.
Take a plant of Coleus, or a cassava stem, cut it
into pieces about 15 cm long, and sthnd them in
water. Pull the leaves from a plant dfBryophyl-
lum (life plant), and place them on damp news-
paper, in a bowl. Do these parts of pants grow?
Y es they do grow.
Catch a gecko, and hold it by the til. The tail
will probably beak off.
Is the tail still alive? Y es.
Can it grow into a new gecko? No.
Can the gecko grow a new tail? No.

Recently, surgeons have found a way of sew-
ing back on to the hand which has been cut off
in an accident, provided the operation can be car-
ried out immediately.

What does this show? This shows that living
things can grow back together if they are sewn
together immediately.

our country, Guyana.
3. It is a rain forest project which seeks to
gather, to share and to sustain all the vast
treasure and resources that are stored within
the allotted area.
4. The Iwokrama project is named after the
Iwokrama mountain range that dominates the
rainforest sight.
5. The Iwokrama project area is bounded by
the Essequibo, Siparuni and Takatu rivers, and
the North Rupununi savannah.
6. People of Macusi ancestry live in commu-
nities within the sphere of the Iwokrama re-
7. The Macusi are smart people, and they
possess a great wealth of traditional knowl-
edge, innovations and practices.
8. The Macusi ancestry have a sharp, keen
insight and interest in the Iwokrama
programme from the point of supplying infor-
mation about:the surroundings.
9. Even though the Macusi elders areidying
out, there is still evidence of sufficient intel-
lectual property which those alive still possess.
They know the language to a great extent,
they know about the uses of the trees for very
many purposes. They know also about the
locations of many forest wonders among other
valuable bodies of knowledge. These kinds
of information can be gainfully tapped for the
good of all.

10. The Iwokrama project will be able to put
together a careful study of the lay of the land,
the history of the site, the knotty problems of
land rights and ancestral hunting and fishing
. grounds among, other specifics.

"But some lady is very kind," said one of the
girls to her. "Them treat y'u well. I never work with
them myself, but I know some who is very kind."
"True, my love," agreed another; "but I wouldn't

This was the general sentiment, and had Jane
been a judge of character she would have per-
ceived that these young women were either of a
more independent disposition or of a somewhat
better class than those who remained domestic
servants nearly all their lives. They were rebels;
they had no humility in them; in their own way they
had aspirations; they wanted to be free. Most of
them (city born) had never been domestics. One
or two others had early emancipated themselves
from that form of service. On the whole they knew
very little about it, but that little was sufficient for
them. As for Jane, her experience had been a hard
one, and so she could cordially agree with. the
views of her new acquaintances.
At one o'clock they struggled back to work, and
from that hour until five they pasted labels and
hummed hymns, only stopping now and then to
have their bottles inspected and checked. Some-
times there was a sharp dispute between them and
the man who examined their work. Their inveter-
ate inclination was to think that he was cheating
or that he wished to be unreasonable. Jane shared
the sentiments of her colleagues, and once dur-
ing the day she even ventured upon a feeble pro-
test against the man's complaint. She was quite
wrong, but this effort at self-assertion pleased her.
She had already begun to feel herself 'her own
SShe was thoroughly tired when she reached
home that afternoon, and for some time she sat
idly by the threshold of her little room, watching
Sathyra prepare dinner for both of them. Sathyra
placed a small box very near to the door, and un-
der the single window which the room possessed.
On the box she set a little iron stove filled with burn-
ing charcoal and on this an iron pot. She sat be-
side the impromptu fireplace, a second box form-
ing her seat, and in a very short space of time she
had peeled the bit of yam, scraped the four sweet
potatoes, and stripped the skin from the stout
green plantain that was to form the staple of their.
evening meal. It was a salt-fish dinner: half a pound
of salt fish and three farthings' worth of pork would
be adequate, flavouring for the breadkind. Sathyra
would not ask Jane to assist her just then, know-
ing that the girl had been tired out by work that was
strange to her; as for herself, she was accustomed
to cooking her meals after going home, and to do-
ing her own washing after that, and Jane would be
able to help in a very short time. She talked as
she worked; talked business.

How Interest is captured in Reading

What makes you want to continue reading some-
thing? How does an author capture your interest?

Read what follows, and then answer the questions
which come after.

Between the silver ribbon of morning and the green
glittering ribbon sea, the boat touched Harwich and
let loose a swarm of folk like flies, among whom
the man we must follow was by no means con-
spicuous nor wished to be. There was nothing
notable about him, except a slight contrast between
the holiday gaiety of his clothes and the official grav-
ity of his face. His clothes included a slight, pale
gray jacket, a white waistcoat, and a silver straw
hat with a gray-blue ribbon. His lean face was dark
by contrast, and ended in a curt black beard that
looked Spanish and suggested an Elizabethan ruff.
He was smoking a cigarette with the seriousness
of an idler. There was nothing about him to indi-
cate the fact that the gray jacket covered a revolver,
that the white waistcoat covered a police card, or
that the straw hat covered one of the most power-
ful intellects in Europe. For this was Valentin him-
self, the head of the Paris police and the most fa-
mous investigator of the world; and he was com-
ing from Brussels to London to make the greatest
arrest of the century.

the man was carrying a loaded revolver and that
he was a very smart police officer?
7. What is the difference between recording the
facts and telling a story?
8. In what kind of books do we find facts?

that was started above, in what kind of book would

books? Why?

The Poem
Man O' War Bird

The idling pivot of the circling bird
Sways the world's scales, tilts cobalt sea and sky,
Rightens, by its round eye, my drift
Through heaven when I shift
My study to the sun.
The easy wings
Depend upon the stress I give such things
As my importance to its piercing height, the peace
Of its slow, ravening circuit of a speck
Upon a beach prey to its beak
Like any predatory tern it seizes.
In that blue wildfire somewhere is an Eye
That weighs this world exactly as it pleases.

I had promised last week to
continue the discussion on
the different types of com-
mercial dog food on the mar-
ket. In the TVA of July 3rd,
2005 it was mentioned the
consistency of commercial
dog food comes as dry food or
soft-moist food.

Mostly this type of food
comes as dried kibble in a
pelleted form. Also, instead of
dried pellets,.the dried food can
be in the form of a biscuit. The
ease of feeding dried dog (cat)
food is perhaps what makes it
so popular and appealing to pet
owners. Moreover, one does not
need to refrigerate it. Of course,
here in the tropics where the en-
vironment is warm and where
the moisture in the air is high it
is not surprising that the
pelleted food once the bag has
been opened is susceptible to
fungus attack. This means that
whenever you open the bag of
dry food, either seal it well af-

ter use or move the dry feed
from its original bag into another
air-tight container.
Dry foods contain about 90
per cent dry matter and about
10 per cent water. They are
made by mixing together grains,
meat and some butchery by-
products. The end product of
the cooking is then mixed with
fat to increase palatability. Af-
terwards, the entire mixture gets
vitamins and minerals added.
During the cooking process,
starch is converted into a more
easily digested substance. On
top of that, the cooking kills
bacteria and could destroy
health threatening toxins. The
product is sterilised. Dry food,
besides having a lower relative
cost to, say, canned (soft-moist)
food, provides beneficial mas-
sage of the teeth and gums thus
helping to keep a healthy mouth
and decrease periodontal dis-

Actually, canned food is a

soft-moist food, but contains'
more water (68 78 per cent)
and less dry matter (22 32 per
cent) by percentage relative to
the'classical soft-moist food
which contains 25 40 per cent
water. Indeed, if one were to
switch canned dog/cat food to
dry food, or even to classical
soft-moist food, one would no-
tice that the dog's intake of wa-
ter would increase.
Canned foods are offered in
a "chunky" form or as a stew,
the latter containing more water.
It is always advisable to add
some minerals and vitamins
when feeding canned foods to
older dogs. Your vet will advise
you as to how much. Of course,
canned food has a distinct ad-
vantage for old dogs/cats which
have lost their teeth.
Finally, something that you
already know, and that is that
canned food is more expensive,
but you don't have to refriger-
ate it. However, once you have
opened a can of the food, you
should use it all up within one

Here in the tropics, I do not
advise clients to use soft-moist
foods (SMFs), simply because
they contain too many chemi-
cal additives. Since SMFs do
not need to be refrigerated, the
makers add substances to con-
trol bacterial proliferation. Also,
SMFs are acidified with phos-
phoric and hydrochloric acids to
further retard spoilage. An old
dog with some degree of mu-
cous membrane (internal cover-
ing of the stomach and intesti-
nal wall) damage sure does not
need acid touching the stomach
Finally, allow me to sug-
gest that you can concoct your
own home-cooked diet for
your elder dog. For one thing
it is cheaper. Also, you know
it is fresh and without too
many chemicals. The disad-
vantages are rather small and
have to do with the time you

have to use up for the prepa-
ration. Also, it is clear that
you will never be able to put
together a nutritionally com-
plete and balanced diet. But
with the help of your veteri-
narian, you can come pretty
close to a balanced formula-

of the Year for the title cut.
While Vandross regained
consciousness, and sufficiently
recovered to appear in a taped
message at the 2004 Grammys
and on The Oprah Winfrey
Show later that same year, he
never resumed his recording or
performing career.
In a heartbreaking statement
to the Associated Press in May
2003, the entertainer's mother,
Mary Vandross, said she was
banking on her son to rebound.
"He has to recover, he's all I
have left," Mary Vandross said.
"He's my last surviving child."
In a 2001 interview, Luther
Vandross, who'd long battled
obesity, diabetes and hyperten-
sion, said his father, brother,
nephew, maternal grandfather
and paternal grandfather had all
succumbed to diabetes.
Luther Ronzoni Vandross,
his middle name cribbed from a
pasta label, was born April 20,
1951, in New York City.
The future R&B crooner
got his start in gospel. As a
teenager, he played Harlem's
famed Apollo Theatre with
the gospel-soul group 'Listen
My Brother'.
At the age of 20, his career
moved downtown to Broadway,
where his composition 'Every-
body Rejoice (A Brand New
Day)' was featured in the hit
musical The Wiz.

The young Vandross went
on to pay the bills as a commer-
cial jingle writer and backup vo-
calist for the likes of Bette
Midler, Barbra Streisand and
David Bowie.
Vandross scored the Bowie
gig through an old school friend.
At the time, the English rocker
was working on his landmark
1975 album, Young Anmericans.
Hired as a singer, Vandross
ended up arranging the vocal
parts and cowriting the song,
The following year,
Vandross moved from the back-
ground to the foreground with
the disco group Luther. To the
relief of wedding deejays,
Vandross' bout with Saturday
Night Fever was brief. Luther,
the group, was a bust.
Vandross, the sultry R&B star,
was about to be born.
His breakthrough more
than 10 years in the making -
came with his 1981 solo debut,
'Never Too Much'. The seven-
track collection included the hit
title track and a cover of a Burt
Bacharach standard he made his
own, 'A House Is Not a Home'.
The platinum-selling album
was a career definer. No more
would Vandross ping-pong from
Broadway to Bowie. He was,
always and forever, the stan-
dard-bearer of the smooth love
"[My style is] not 'Meet
me in the shower' and 'Let's rub
oil on each other,' he once said
in an interview. "You'll never
hear me sing about those things."

Vandross' more under-
stated style brought him the
1990 Grammy for Best Male
R&B Vocal Performance for
'Here and Now'. He repeated
in that category in 1991 for
'Power of Love' and in 1996
for 'Your Secret Love'. In all,
Vandross won eight Grammys
and sold more than 25 mil-
lion albums.
If his career held steady,
Vandross' health did not. By his
own admission, he was a carb
addict who lost, and gained,
more than 100 pounds 14
times-often in the very public
eye. As recently as 1998, the
six-foot-three singer weighed in
at 340 pounds.
"[When you're that heavy
it] feels like you're wearing
an 80-pound hat and a coat
that weighs 300 pounds,"
Vandross told ABC News in
2001, during one of his slen-
der, 220-pound periods. "You
wear it externally, so the
minute you walk through the
door, everybody knows,
Luther's not winning his
battle with his demon."
"An alcoholic can't have
half a martini," he said, "and
you know, I can't have bread."
Fortunately, Vandross al-
ways had song--and admirers.
Mariah Carey dueted with him
on 'Endless Love', off his 1994
cover-tune collection Songs.
Whitney Houston recorded his
'Who Do You Love', for her
1990 album 'I'm Your Baby To-
night'. Foxy Brown, Busta
Rhymes and Queen Latifah con-

tribute to 'Dance with my Fa-
ther'. His duet with Beyonce
from that collection, 'The
Closer I Get to You', earned the
Grammy for Best R&B Perfor-
mance By a Duo Or Group with
Vandross called Dance with
my Father a personal album; the
title track "the best song he
ever wrote," according to his
"When I heard it, I felt like
I was going to, well, scream,"
Mary Vandross said in a state-
ment around the time of the
album's release. "I played it
over and over, and I cried and
cried. I was amazed how well
Luther remembered his father,
how we used to dance and sing
in the house. I was so surprised
that at seven and a half years of
age, he could remember what a
happy household we had. It
was always filled with a lot of
The song debuted during an
April 2003 episode of Fox's
Boston Public. American Idol
alum Tamyra Gray handled the
singing honours. Vandross him-
self was to have graced the Idol

stage in 2003 as a guest judge,
but then the stroke struck.
To the end, his mother held
out hope for his full recovery.
"Knowing how he loves
this new album, I believe Luther
would want it to come out now,
and I'm so grateful that he can
get this chance," she said in
2003. "He is going to recover,
and when he does, I want him
to be greeted with a big success
story. "
Vandross was remembered
in the 2004 tribute album 'For-
ever, for Always, for Luther',
featuring the work of jazz art-
ists such as George Benson. A
new R&B-style tribute album
was announced just last month.
Carey, Celine Dion and former
Idol champs Fantasia and Ruben
Studdard were among those
scheduled to contribute tracks.
"Remember, when I say
goodbye it's never for long,"
Vandross said during his vid-
eotaped appearance at the
2004 Grammys. "Because,"
he continued, slipping into
one of his trademark tunes,
"I believe in the power of
