By Shawnel Cudjoe
THE Ministry of Health is
currently tracking the
increased circulation of fake
malaria drugs on the retail
markets, especially in the
hinterland areas.
At a press briefing
yesterday. Health Minister Dr.
Leslie Ramsammy disclosed
that several samples from shops
have already been taken, tested
and sent to the United States
for further testing. He said that
the Ministry is currently
awaiting those results, but some
local tests were positive.
According to the Minister,
although the drugs are free in the
Public Health Sector, there is a
procedure of testing that has to
be done before they are issued.
Some people consider this
procedure time consuming, he
pointed out.
Referring to the persons
living in the hinterland
areas, where the disease is
most prevalent, the Minister
said that "they want a fast
fix". He said that most of the
samples were taken from
those areas, since they are
"starting where the problem
is the acutest".
According to Ramsammy,
although Guyana has the
capacity to test the authenticity
of the drugs here, they are
sending abroad for confirmation.
Ramsammy said that
Guyana is now equipped to
screen malaria drugs on site and
countries will be sending theirs
here for testing.
"We are able to go now,
pick up the drugs from the
shops and screen (them)",
Ramsammy added.
According to the Minister,
once persons are found
culpable, they will be penalised.
The Minister stressed that

although the drugs are not
harmful in that they do not
necessarily cause death, they are
not helpful either since they do
not treat the disease.
Meanwhile, the Pan
American Health Organisation
(PAHO) Directing Council at its
46th meeting held in Washington
last month passed a resolution
asking countries of the
Americas to continue expanding
their malaria programmes.
According to Minister
Ramsammy, this stemmed
from Guyana's proposal at
last year's meeting that
malaria be given more
awareness among the
countries of the America.
Ramsammy added that the
countries were also urged to
introduce a Malaria Day as
Guyana did three years ago. The
event is observed on November
6. Further, he said that PAHO
is working towards
implementing a Malaria Day of
the Americas.
He said that this is being
done to intensify the awareness
of malaria "to ensure that
malaria becomes an insignificant
health problem".
Though there is not an
overwhelming number of malaria
deaths in the Americas, the
Minister pointed out that in
some countries in Africa, two
million people die every year
from the disease.
"Mortality is not a major
problem", the Minister said,
adding that for 2004, some 98
persons were reported to have
died from the disease in the
Americas, with the majority
of cases coming from one
country Haiti.
According to the Minister,
the Health Ministry has been
working on other initiatives to
reduce the number of malaria
cases even further. He alluded to

the distribution of mosquito
nets that was recently started
and added that the families
have really been grateful.
The Ministry is now
moving outside of families and
targeting other groups such as
miners and loggers in the
hinterland areas.
"These are some of the
vulnerable groups," the
Minister noted.
Year end, he said, persons
who received mosquito nets
during a countrywide campaign
will be shown how to
impregnate (soak) them. The
Minister said that the nettings
will be placed in large garbage
like bag with insecticides, and
shaken before being put to dry.

He attributed the over
reduction of malaria case
mainly to the surveillance that

WTO Hong Kong

meeting expected

to be stormy
THE World Trade Organisation (WTO) Ministerial Meeting
in Hong Kong this December is expected to be a turbulent one,
as clashes between the agendas of advanced and developing
countries seem inevitable.
Minister of Foreign Trade and International Cooperation, Clem-
ent Rohee, at a press conference Thursday, indicated that despite
the position of the powerful countries, the African, Caribbean and
Pacific (ACP) group, of which Guyana is an integral part, will con-
tinue to press their agenda at the Hong Kong meeting.
"I would like to point out that as far as the climate for a suc-
cessful Hong Kong meeting is concerned, the weather forecast pre-
dicts much turbulence in the run up to Hong Kong and possibly at
the Hong Kong meeting itself," the Minister said.
He added: "The big players such as the EU and US, as well as
the G-20, are still behaving like the penguin and walrus, pressing
each other to see who will fly first. Of course, since these two in-
habitants of the Antarctic can only flap their wings, the rest of the
WTO's membership is left to ponder this amazing spectacle and
await its ending."

includes the demand for the recognition of several Category

GEA going

after big fishes

By Neil Marks

THE Guyana Energy
Agency (GEA) is not
only tightening the
loop on fuel marking and
fuel testing, but is ready to
tackle the business as well,
through the introduction of
new mandatory regulations
to ensure that taxes are not
This comes in light of last
week's illegal fuel bust on the

East Bank Demerara and Prime
Minister Samuel Hinds' admis-
sion Friday evening that the U.S.
patented chemical used to mark
fuel was being sold on the mar-
ket as publicised by local daily
Kaieteur News.
Two GEA employees who
were responsible for marking
fuel are to be dismissed and the
fuel marker will be changed,
Head of the Guyana Energy
Agency (GEA) Mr Joseph
O'Lall said yesterday.
He pointed out that the

chemical which incorporates
secret ingredients and is used
to determine whether fuel
was smuggled or not, was
apparently being stolen in
small portions by the
"For example, if you go
to mark fuel for GPL
(Guyana Power and Light),
which comes in thousands
of barrels, it is very easy
for you to slip out a pint or
two of the marker. So that
when the fuel is tested, be-

cause of the huge propor-
tionality of fuel marker al-
ready in it, you can test
the fuel and pass it, and no
one would know that the
full amount of the marker
wasn't used, but that it was
stolen," O'Lall explained.
He said he is now spear-
heading the fuel marking opera-
tion and will personally oversee
the marking of bulk fuel.
Meanwhile, the new regula-
tions will seek to ensure that
fuel retailers pay taxes on all fuel


PARLIAMENT is to meet in
a-special sitting next month
to honour Hubert Nathaniel
Critchlow as part of a
programme to mark 100 years
since he launched the local
trade union movement,
organizers have announced.
Critchlow, the 'father of
trade unionism' in Guyana,
formally placed labour on a
new footing here on November
28, 100 years ago and the
Guyana Labour Union (GLU)
which he founded has planned
a series of activities to honour
his sterling contributions to the
movement in his country and
the Caribbean.
GLU General Secretary,
Mr Carvil Duncan, told report-
ers last week that Parliament

will meet on November 30 af-
ter a national rally on the lawns
of Parliament Buildings the
same day to pay tribute to the
labour stalwart.
He said some 25 Carib-
bean labour leaders are also
due here to join local coun-
terparts in a one-day seminar
on November 29 at Le
Meridien Pegasus Hotel in
Georgetown at which Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo will be
the feature speaker.
The President will also host
seminar delegates at a reception
at his official State House resi-
dence that night as part of the
commemoration programme,
Duncan said.
He noted that the land-
mark strike Critchlow led on


CIA.L 331if 12641

November 28, 1905 changed
the landscape of industrial
relations in Guyana and led
to the commencement of the
Caribbean Congress of
Given his immense stature
and his contributions to this
country and the Caribbean,
Duncan said all Guyanese and
parties should be involved in the
celebrations to help foster
greater national unity.
He said the Education
Ministry has been asked to in-
clude a curriculum for trade

unionism in schools to help pre-
serve the history of Critchlow
among Guyanese.
Among other activities
planned for the commemoration
are dominoes, essay and debat-
ing competitions and a wreath-
laying ceremony.
Critchlow was born in
Georgetown on December 18,
1884 during a period when
there was a glut on the in-
ternational sugar market
and the local sugar indus-
try was on a downward spi-

they sell, and with citizens com-
ing forth with reports of fuel
smuggling the fight has only
now begun, he said.
"You know how many
calls I have been getting? The
citizens are responding to the
positive activities of the GEA
and they have seen that the
GEA is preparing to take the
big fishes," he said.
Under new regulations
which are being drafted, fuel re-
tailers will be required to sub-
mit monthly opening and clos-
ing stock figures, O'Lall told the
Sunday Chronicle.
This will in turn be submit-
ted to the Guyana Revenue Au-
thority, whose job it will be to
determine if all taxes are being
If the fuel retailers fail to
meet this requirement, they
would risk losing their licence,
he explained.
In addition, when fuel
tankers leave the bulk termi-
nals where they load, the GEA
would make checks on the
road, to ensure that the fuel
they left with was not over or
under marked, the agency
head said.
Drivers of fuel tankers will
also be required to sign docu-
ments saying where the fuel
they are transporting is destined
for and what amount, and if the
fuel ends up elsewhere, an im-
mediate investigation would be
launched, O'Lall reported.
He said this is part of a re-
view of the GEA procedures
following the discovery of ille-
gal fuel at Coverden on the East


Bank Demerara and Brickdam
late last month. A popular big
businessman, a senior GEA of-
ficial and several others have
been charged in connection with
the find.
Prime Minister Hinds, in
his statement Friday night,
said that overall, the fuel
marking system, introduced
two years ago, continues
to detect and deter smug-
gling which was at about a
30% level but is now down to
"The GEA would work to
further reduce this below the
current 10%," Mr Hinds said.
"The battle to combat the
smuggling of fuel must be per-
severing since there are large po-
tential ill-gotten gains, not just
in evading the nation's tax, but
even more in the illicit acquisi-
tion of fuel in neighboring
countries," the Prime Minister
He said no effort is being
spared to ensure the integrity of
the fuel marking programme and
encouraged all public spirited
citizens to help identify and
expose areas of corrupt prac-
He thanked Kaieteur
News for its "public-
spiritedness in bringing this
(the fuel marker racket) to
his attention."

Editorial )



A GRICULTURE -remains, for many
'member states ,of the Caribbean
Community, including Guyana, a most vital
sector for employment and foreign exchange
earnings. But there continues to be worrying
concerns over the sector's future..
*Last week, this:country was represented in St.. Kitts
and Nevis, at ministerial and technical levels, at the annual
'Caribbean Week of Agriculture' and shared the concerns
facing the region's economies as a consequence of
further losses in market share and prices for sugar, rice
and bananas.
Coinciding with the 2005 Caribbean Week of
Agriculture; is Guyana's current observance of October
as 'Agriculture Month', officially launched last week under

.the theme 'Agriculture and lntercaltural Dialogue'.
Whatever the intention, .the conceptt *of 'intercultural
-dialogue' in advancing agricultural development could
'fall victim to the same kind of cynicism spawned by the
rhetoric from CARICOM meetings yith promises to be
*more 'focused on expansion and; growth' of the region's
'agricultural sector.
Among: CARICOM Heads of' 6dvernment, President
'Bharrat Jagdeo has lead responsibility for regional
Agricultural development. 'We are aware of the approval
by CARICOM of what is known as the 'Jagdeo Initiative in
Agriculture'.' Something is alsodknown of the Guyanese
SPresident's' 'sense .of frustration over dack of.
implementation measures.
What the local and regional publics need to have is
some informed assessment of the status of CARICOM's
implementation policy on agricultural modernisation,
especially in view of the'new threats to. traditional exports
of agricultural commodities, as well as the level of
involvement: of regional agencies like CARDI, CDB and
the Community Secretariat itself.
Serious questions are being asked on what has been
done by regional, hemispheric and
other agencies involved in the region's agricultural sector,
including the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation in
Agriculture, the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation
(FAO) and the Caribbean Development Bank in terms of
a-coherent Plan of Action on Agriculture?

Grass for your ass

I KNOW now for sure that
Georgetown Mayor
Hamilton Green is a 'see far'
I have long wondered why
he has never been able to lead a
successful fight back against the
mounting problems in this once
fair capital city of ours and why
he so often seemed to be in danger
of being crushed by the burdens
of his office.
There's grass here, there and
almost everywhere in the city.
There's grass covering main
drainage canals, in empty lots,
on street parapets, and at times
grass seems to be taking over
some streets.
Green, creepy, crawling
vines are on lamp posts, out of
use street lights, derelict houses,
almost everywhere.
Mayor Green in City Hall
had apparently issued a secret
decree that since he was green,
the city should also be carpeted
in green and municipal
employees were probably
getting bonuses to let the grass
spread, I have often surmised.
It was puzzling. Why
would anyone in such high office
seem determined to want to bury
the rest of us under a green
He already has Bourda

Green so why make a run for a
Georgetown Green?
Was this Mayor Green's
way of trying to climb into the
good gardens of the
Greenpeace environmental
organisation? A bid for

international recognition,
perhaps, after having been so
rudely booted out and his 'navel
string' cut from the People's
National Congress (PNC) that
birthed him?
It, for me, has been a puzzle
as tangled as the mighty green
jungles of the Guyana int-rior.
Now light has suddenly
come through the dense foliage

the father of the Good and Green
Guyana (GGG) party has been
bent on cultivating all these years
in this once proud 'Garden City'
of the Caribbean.
I have seen the green light -
And it took a crisis to pull
the scales from my eyes. I take
my green hat off to you, Mayor
Green. You are Good and Green
for Georgetown!
I swear I have
seen the Green
3,_ mayor turn blue
complaining that
SL he is not getting
El enough revenue
from citizens and
the government to
take care of the
myriad problems
besetting the city
he presides over.
And at times
it looked like Mayor Green's
eyes were red from crying that
he was being wrongfully blamed
for not accomplishing much
when he is not getting the money
to do the job.
It was this injustice that
probably propelled our mayor
to look for solace, comfort and
inspiration on those trips
overseas to commingle with

others seeking a moral and
spiritual revival.
I understand that it was
on one of these missions that
Mayor Green got a glimpse
into the future and qaw the
looming fuel crii, ind the
bountiful har cii to beh
reaped from ihe it.N of lush
grass that ha> gro% n high
from under uhi feet.
The world '. now reeling
from theimpact of higher oi
prices but NMayor Green
must be dizzy at the
prospects of \ hat he siiands
to gain from the grs t,,-roinnd
his city.
It's grass for \our aI.'

It's now time to watch the
grass money roll in and build a
better city. Bless you, Mayor
Just think about it, people.
Americans are tearing their hair
out and gnashing their teeth at
the rising cost of gas and our
Mayor is smiling and
contemplating his rich harvest
of grass.

'See far' man that he is, he
allowed the grass to grow and
spread across Georgetown
knowing that the coming rising
gas prices would force his
citizens to see grass the way he
sees it.
He knew that it wouldn't be
too long before people here
would be looking to hop back

into jackass and horse carts as a
cheaper means of transportation.
And guess what? Horses and
jackasses eat grass.
And who's got the grass?
That's right the Good and
Green Grass (GGG) party!

It's grass for your ass as the
ass and horse cart posses swoop
in to replace the mini-bus bands.
And it would be a lot of grass
for the ass as commuters swap
the horrendous mini-bus races
for horse and ass cart gallops.
I hear the Mayor has already
deployed the City Constabulary
to police the grass so lovingly
cultivated in the canals, parapets
and elsewhere in Georgetown.
Cut grass without permission
and face a cut-ass.
Hard times bring out the best
in some of us. The Mayor saw
the fuel crisis coming, allowed
his grass to grow and let the
critics carp.
Now with you needing
grass for your ass, he gets his
grass cut and sold and from the
grass bonanza he would have
enough money to fix all the
other things that need fixing -
like the potholes that should
be mended when the oil crisis
is over.
What's that you say? The
potholes could be mini oil drilling
holes? Someone may be drilling
for oil in Georgetown streets?

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 9, 2005



(The following is part one of excerpts of a presentation made to a 'Democracy
Symposium' held at the University of Guyana Tain Campus, Berbice)

I .INTEND this brief
presentation by answering
four basic questions that are
relevant to the theme and
purpose of this public
symposium: 1. What is
democracy? 2. What has been
the impact of our brief
experience with democracy?
3. Is our democracy
threatened? 4. Why is
democracy critical for our
prosperity and stability?

The word 'democracy' is
derived from, the ancient Greek
word demokratia was coined
in ancient Athens in the 5th
century BC. The Greek word
means: demos the people;
kratein to rule; and the suffix
Ba (ia), put together "rule by
the people". Over the years, the
meaning of 'democracy' has
changed. Today, many agree
with the following definition:
'democracy is a form of
government in which policy is
decided by the preference of the
majority in a decision-making
process., usually elections or
refeeida. open to all
Over centuries and even in
this era, philosophers and
politicians have never agreed on
the virtues and vices of this

concept. There has been intense
debate as to the usefulness of
this system. Skeptics of
democracy include the Greek
thinker Plato and French
philosopher Jean' Jacques
Rousseau, who in some of their
writings placed emphasis on
some problems of democracy.
Just recently, Indian scholar
Pratap Banu Meta of the
Jawaharlal Nehru University in
his recent book "The Burden of
Democracy," wrote:
"Democracy means government
by discussion, but it is only
effective if you can stop people
talking." Dr. Festus Brotherson
was even quizzed in one of his
columns in the Guyana
Chronicle on whether
'democracy means dem a
crazy!' In light of the centuries-
old writings and arguments
about this form of government,
British World War 11-era Prime
Minister Sir Winston Churchill
concluded: "It has been said that
democracy is the worst form of
government except all the others
that have been tried.".
What has been the impact of
our brief experience with
The long, hard struggle to
restore democracy can be likened
to our nation's fight for .
Independence. Our people's

endurance and capacity to
overcome the odds are due to
the rich legacy of our ancestors
who fought to end slavery,
indentureship and colonialism.
Now, that we are in the 13th
year of our democratic State we
ought to engage in some form of
evaluation or. self-evaluation.
There are various forms of
measurement which
international groups and
academics use to measure a
well-functioning democracy.
One which is useful is the Inter-
American Democratic Charter.
The Inter-American
Democratic Charter recognizes
the following as vital
components for the
strengthening of democracy:
Respect for human
rights and fundamental freedoms
Free and fair elections
Rule of law
Accountability of
government institutions
Recognition and
respect for social rights
Public participation
S. Elimination of
Access to education
Strengthening of
political parties and
organizations to facilitate
expression of the will of the

Each of these can be examined
in a detailed way in our context to
see how we have fared. But, to put
it briefly, the record of the PPP/C
Administration is Ihat we have
lived up to all of these components

and haveeven exceeded many.
Guyana is today world-
rated as a nation where human
rights and fundamental freedoms
are guaranteed and protected.
Every election held since 1992
has been certified as being free

and fair by local and
international observer groups.
The rule of law has been
restored and people today can
feel, with varying degrees of
comfort, that their community

is one in which the laws of the
land are paramount and-
respected. All legislative and
executive measures have been
taken to ensure transparency
and accountability of
government institutions. The

return, in 1993, of the annual
Auditor General's Report which
accounts for every dollar
collected and spent by
Government, is one such
example. The official policy of
discrimination on the basis of
political belief and ethnicity,
which was used by the PNC
Government, has been removed.
There is now a functioning
Ethnic Relations Commission as
well as a raft of laws and
international conventions from
which Guyanese can seek
redress if they feel
discriminated. Access to
education has been a priority of
the PPP/C even before
countries of this hemisphere
adopted the Democratic Charter.
Regarding political parties, there
are about 30 that have indicated
an interest in the 2006 elections.
No longer are their activists and
leaders hounded and harassed.
People today enjoy more
freedom. They feel a greater
sense of participation in the
national life of the country.
This feeling of inclusiveness has
been expanded by the revised
Constitution that replaced the
dictatorial 1980 Constitution.
The people %ill be the
judges of whether we have
passed .the true test of a
democracy next year as they
-were able to do in 1992, 1997
and 2001. The supremacy of
democracy is certainly not in
doubt. (Part two in next week's

Savannah Inn-Hotel -

Entrepreneur lauds Lethem community spirit -

By Chamanlall Naipaul
THE Savannah Inn-Hotel
and Guest House, located in
a most picturesque and se-
rene site at Lethem, is
among the most thriving en-
terprises in the community
The simple flat concrete
white and green building, ringed
by flower plants and set against
a background of the Kanuku
Mountains, is a virtual oasis in
-the area, providing a refreshing
and inspirational ambiance. The
facility's interior, outfitted with
indigenous furniture, is deco-
rated with paintings and photo-
graphs depicting the life and en-
vironment of the Amerindians.
The hotel today boasts a
restaurant and variety shop,
and provides a transportation
service for tourists who wish
to explore the vast savannah

lands. It is also in the process
of developing horse-riding fa-
cilities for those who are so
The Savannah Inn wds
founded by a hardworking
teacher-couple, Mohamed and
Linda Khan, from Mahaica and
West Berbice, respectively, who
left the coastland of Guyana in
the 1970s to continue their
teaching careers in ithe
Rupununi. They subsequently
made Lethem their home,: a di-
rection few coast-landers have
taken. In fact, the reverse is
more prevalent.
Mrs. Khan explained that
at that time, teachers who
moved from the coast to the
hinterland received a station
allowance of $85. The allow-
ance significantly boosted
their income, since the basic
salary of teachers on 4the
coast was not adequate to

meet the high cost of living.
After more than a decade of
teaching at several schools
around Rupununi, they event4
ally quit teaching and decided ,t
enter the arena of business full-
time. They both quit their jobs,
at the St. Ignatius Secondary
School he in 1990, she in 1993
- and established a small shop.
One of the contributory
factors to the success of their
business venture was the estab-
lishment of peanut farms in the
villages in which they worked
whilst teaching, Mrs. Khan ex-
plained. At their shop, the
Khans sold the farm-produced

identified major problems that have to be sorted out if the plan is to go forward.
When he addressed stakeholders recently, the first bottleneck he identified was the lack of baseline
statistical data on tourism in Guyana to justify Government investment that would be required and to
monitor the outcome of this investment.
He said the Government has to be convinced that if it invests in tourism, it would get returns.
Heneghan said that of every dollar a tourist spends, 30-40 per cent of it goes into the Government's
purse through taxes. I
Among the other problems he identified were Guyana'si poor image, safety concerns, the skills
deficiency for the sector, and inadequate airlift to various destinations.
Heneghan has made his suggestions for making a difference and these are likely to be included in
his plan. 1
According to Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce Manzoor Nadir, when Dr. Heneghan's
plan is submitted, it will be taken to Cabinet for approval and then the hunt will begin for funding to
have it implemented.
Dr. Heneghan has been active in tourism consultancy since 1977 and has been responsible for
directing and carrying out consultancy assignments involving business reviews of private corporations
and state-owned enterprises, corporate strategic studies, human resources management and operations,
project feasibility analyses, organisational studies, information systems studies and sector studies of
national economies.
These consultancy assignments have been carried out in Ireland, Africa, Asia, the Middle
East, East and Western Europe, Caribbean, Central and South America and the Pacific.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 9, 2005 1


Sponsor byt G -U-National - s et Framework Project

IN OUR first article in this
series, we provided two stan-
dard definitions of biotech-
nology as well as biosafety,
with some explanations. To-
day, we proceed by linking
biotechnology and biosafety
to two very important Inter-
national Conventions or In-
struments relating to the in-
ternational importance of
biotechnology, its potential
risks and the safeguards in
order to establish the impor-
tance of the National Biosafety
Framework Project.
Biotechnology has been
recognized as an important driv-
ing force for sustainable devel-
opment and the sustainable use
of biological diversity (the total-
ity of genes, various types of
organisms on earth (=species)
and the ecosystems in which
they live). Agenda 21, an impor-
tant international compact
which was endorsed by several.
nations, including Guyana, at
the United Nations Conference
on Environment and Develop-
ment (UNCED), held in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil in 1992, identi-
fied biotechnology (in Chapter
16) playing a key -role in pro-
better health care
enhanced food security
transformation of raw ma-
terials (for example, Guyana's
ability to harness biotechnology
to convert molasses into biode-
gradable plastic bio-plastic)
afforestation and refores-
tation (re-planting of logged for-
detoxification of hazard-
ous waste (technologies for
making toxic wastes unharmful)
transformation of biologi-
cal resources
-.ex situ conservation of
biological resources (how we can
conserve plants and animals un-
der threat of extinction in the
natural environment, elsewhere
under controlled monitoring
such as tissue culture laborato-
ries, botanical gardens, zoos,
seed-banks, etc.-
sustainable agriculture
sustainable development.

Article 16 of the Convention
on Biological Diversity, to
which Guyana is a signatory,
also recognizes the important
role of biotechnology in sustain-
able development and use of our
biological resources. The Con-
vention advocates "access to
and transfer of biotechnology to
contracting parties" for achiev-
ing its objectives, while
recognizing that in so doing, the
use and transfer of biotechnol-
ogy "do not cause significant
damage to the environment."
Furthermore, the Convention
specifically identified a need and
process for the negotiation and
development of an international
legal instrument to safeguard
human and animal health, the
environment and biological di-
versity. Hence, the coming into
being of the Cartagena Protocol
on Biosafety. Just as Guyana's
commitment to Agenda 21 and
the Convention on Biological
Diversity gave birth to our En- .
vironmental Protection Agency,
the Cartagena Protocol on
Biosafety seeks to put in place
a set of procedures that will
safeguard Guyana, as a sover-
eign state, from any harmful ef-
fects or risks deriving from the
use or transfer of modern bio-
The Protocol is, therefore, a
supplementary agreement to the
Convention on Biological Diver-
sity. It was adopted on January
29, 2000 and it came into force
in September 2003.
The.Protocol does the fol-

tionary approach" as a principle:

(SPS Agreement) and the Agree-
ment on Technical Barriers to

that are relevant to the Cartagena
Protocol on Biosafety. The
Biosafety Protocol states in its
preamble that. it:
1. Recognises that trade and
environment agreements should
be mutually supportive;
2. Emphasises that the Pro-
tocol is not interpreted as im-

plying a change in the rights and
obligations under any existing
agreements; and
3. Understands that the
above recital is not intended to
subordinate the Protocol to
other international agreements.

A National Biosafety
Framework (NBF) is a combi-
nation of policy, legal, adminis-

Interested in joining a Credit Bureau?

What is a Credit Bureau?
A Credit Bureau is an independent agency which provides
personal details on potential customers/clients.

What details?
Details of whether the person is creditworthy using past
credit history and independent assessment.
Basically; is this customer/client a good or poor risk.

How does the Credit Bureau get these details?
Members of the Bureau support each other by providing
details of their good and bad customers/clients.
These details are stored by the Credit Bureau and shared by
other members to prevent unsatisfactory acceptance of a
customer with previous poor history/bad debt.

Is the Bureau fair to all users?
The Credit Bureau is independent and not linked to any
individual company. The information it receives to be shared,
is normally provided by the members although there are other
resources which can be accessed.

Who can join the Credit Bureau?
.Any company, institution or organisation that needs unbiased,
confidential information on a person or company.

How much does it cost to be a member?
There is an annual fee to join (Membership) and a transaction
fee for each request for information.

cultural materials by biological
agents to provide goods and
services in the agri-sector. Ex-
amples of agricultural biotech-
nology include simple domesti-
cation involving selective breed-
ing which was practiced by
Babylonians, the Egyptians and
the Romans nearly 10,000 years
ago and grafting of citrus seed-
lings. These are considered "tra-
ditional biotechnology" whose
products are not GMO. On the
other hand, the use of more
"complex" or "sophisticated"
scientific and engineering tech-
niques to generate desired traits
or qualities in an agricultural
product such as lycopene-en-
riched tomato, virus resistant
pawpaw plants derived from
genetic engineering, the develop-
ment of herbicide resistant soy-
bean or corn are examples of
"modem agricultural biotechnol-
ogy," the products of which will
be transgenic and hence are
GMOs. Note that in this case,
genes can be isolated and trans-


ferred from naturally incompat-
ible crops. Lycopene .is the
bright red pigment in tomatoes,
red peppers, guava and water
melon, which have now been
demonstrated as very useful
prostate and breast cancer pro-
tection agents.
One classical case in mod-
em agricultural biotechnology is
the isolation and transfer of the
frost tolerance gene from the
Arctic flounder fish into straw-
berry, sugar beet, tomato, and
potato in order to make these
crops frost tolerant. The frost
tolerance gene allows the floun-
der fish to inhabit very cold,
sub-zero temperature seas in
temperate latitudes by synthe-
sizing freeze-tolerance proteins
that ensure its adaptation and
survival in freezing conditions.
Through this technological inno-
vation/feat, the planting and
growing season for these crops
in temperate climates, can be ex-
tended. Note that a gene from
an animal the arctic flounder

fish! has been isolated and ge-
netically engineered into plants!
A feat that can not, in all prob-
ability, occur naturally! How-
ever, the "desired trait" is
"frost-tolerance" in strawberry
or potato! The power of bio-
technology can, on the surface,
be very "frightening." Can you
imagine a gene from snapper or
hassa being engineered into rice
plant for a particular trait per-
haps "fish-flavoured," "fish-
protein-enriched rice" to stave
off malnutrition in children
.from poor homes? This is the
"power" of modem biotechnol-
ogy. The possibilities for mod-
em biotechnology are seamless.
It is for this reason we must de-
velop safeguards against poten-
tial dangers and risks.
Next week we shall con-
clude our topic on agricul-
tural biotechnology, discuss
its benefits and risks, as well
as introduce the term
biosecurity and start discussions
on medical biotechnology.

more than two years ago. His killers were apprehended and their trial in Brazil is nearing
Mrs. Khan related that she was devastated by the death of her husband, but she acknowledged
that she has since become more resolute and determined to succeed in business.
She recalled that after Day 40 of his disappearance, she had a vision of him. She said he appeared
in physical form and, according to her, this was a signal that he was no more and that she would have
to shoulder the burden of managing the business.
But what has been responsible for the success of the business started by the Khans? Mrs. Khan
emphatically declared that it has been achieved through "determination and dedication and effective
day-to-day management."
One of the setbacks on the business community as a whole, she noted was the collapse of the
Moco Moco hydro-electricity plant more than two years ago. She added that prior to the collapse,
residents were paying one third of the present rate for electricity. As such, the community is anxiously
awaiting the revival of the facility. The community is currently receiving rationed electricity through a
generating set.
She would also like to see better maintenance of roads in Lethem, improved air service and height-
ened border patrols and immigration facilities.
Has she ever regretted leaving the coastland?
"No, I have never regretted coming to the Rupununi. The people here are friendly and do
not hesitate to help when you need it. The community spirit is alive. The environment is se-
rene and you do not have to be afraid to leave your doors open. Rupununi is my home!

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 9, 2ap5,





THE newly updated World
Health Organisation Mental
Health Atlas 2005 shows that
global resources for people
suffering from mental and
neurological disorders are
grossly insufficient to
address the growing burden
of mental health needs, and
are unequally distributed
around the world.
The World Health
Organisation published the atlas
to mark World Mental Health
Day tomorrow.
The 2005 edition is an
update of the first Mental
Health Atlas 2001, and contains
the most complete global data

available on mental health
resources. It shows no
substantial change in global
mental health resources since
2001, while there continue to be
marked and growing differences
in availability between high-
and low-income countries. For
example, while the survey of
192 countries does show a
slight increase in the total
number of psychiatrists from
3.96 to 4.15 per 100 000 people
worldwide, distribution across
regions ranges from 9.8 in
Europe to just 0.04 in Africa.
This disparity has increased
since 2001.
The Atlas notes that many

countries continue to spend
only a very small proportion of
their total health budget on
mental health. One fifth of the
more than 100 countries
supplying figures to the survey
spend less than one per cent of
their health budget on- mental
health. This is in stark contrast
to WHO's estimate that 13 per
cent of all disease burden is
caused by the wide range of
neuro-psychiatric disorders.
"The new Atlas findings
reflect the ongoing reality that
the world still considers mental
health care as a low priority
within public health. There are

The updated Mental Health
Atlas 2005 is the second
instalment from the WHO
project to examine and
strengthen mental health
resources worldwide. The Atlas
contains a global overview as
well as country-by-country
surveys covering 16 themes
such as: the state of mental
health policy, legislation and
financing, mental health facilities,
numbers of psychiatric beds and
professionals, programmes for
special populations and the
availability of therapeutic drugs.
It includes a wider range of
surveyed countries than the
first edition, as well as
compilation of epidemiological
data about mental illness in each
country. The quality and
quantity of information
collected has been significantly
improved in this edition through
the inclusion of a
comprehensive literature search
on mental health services,
resources and data, and
information collected from
countries, WHO offices and
mental health experts and
WHO has placed the
entire Atlas database on an

UNITED Nations Secretary General, Mr. Kofi
Annan has stressed the importance of a holistic
approach by health systems to address the physical
and mental health dimensions of sicknesses. He
has also called on the community of nations to do
more to bring mental and physical treatment and
care closer together for all individuals at every
stage of life.
His charge was contained in a message in observance of
World Mental Health Day tomorrow. The theme of this year's
observance is 'Mental and Physical Health Across the"
Last year, the Secretary General said in his message, World Mental
Health Day highlighted the complex relationship between mental
and physical health.
"Physical illnesses are often accompanied by emotional
and behavioral problems. We know as well that mental
disorders contribute to the outcomes of chronic diseases.
Therefore it is of utmost importance that health systems adopt
a holistic approach that addresses both the physical and mental
health dimensions of ill health.
"This year's theme, 'Mental and Physical Health Across
the Lifespan', seeks to raise awareness of the need for systems
of treatment and care to be responsive to individuals throughout
their lifespan. Each stage of life from infancy to old age -

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 9, 2005

Guyana observes Worl d Teachers' Day

WORLD Teachers' Day, which
was first launched by
UNESCO at the International
Conference on Education in
Geneva in 1993, was
celebrated on Wednesday.

Chief Education Officer,
Geneveive Whyte-Nedd.

October 5 was chosen because
it was on that day in 1966 that
a special inter-governmental
conference, organised jointly
by UNESCO and the
International Labour
Organisation (ILO), adopted

the recommendation
concerning the Status of
Teachers, which remains
valid today.
World Teachers' Day also
serves as a reminder to

Ministry of Education, Ms.

governments and the general
public of the role of teachers
and of the need to improve
their status and working
conditions. Above all, it is an
opportunity to show
appreciation for their work in

preparing the next generation
to function efficiently in a
changing world.
Following is a message by
Geneveive Whyte-Nedd,
Chief Education Officer,
Ministry of Education on the
occasion of World Teachers'
"It is with pure delight that
I convey to all Teachers of
Nursery, Primary, Secondary and
post Secondary Institutions my
warmest congratulations on this
your world-recognised day!
In 1984, UNESCO
inaugurated World Teachers' Day
- a day now observed each year
in over 100 countries, primarily
to highlight the contributions of
the teaching profession at
national, regional, and
international levels.
This year, 2005, this
special day is commemorated
in the midst of the
implementation of the
Education Fast Track
Initiative, The United Nations
Millennium Goals for Human
Development, Universal
Secondary Education (USE)
and the Basic Education And
Management Support Project

Reuters report says 65) out of a
total 116 infections, over the
past two years.

According to the faxed
document we referred to earlier,
many of the basic prerequisites
for the beginning of a global pan-
demic are already in place, chief
among which is the relative ease
and efficiency of long-distance
travel which can lead to the
spread of H5NI across much of
the globe within a matter of
months or even weeks.
The document envisions
several possible situations com-
ing into play in the event of a
pandemic including inadequate
supplies of antiviral vaccines and
antibiotic medicine to combat
both H5N1 and secondary op-
portunistic diseases; the over-
whelming number of patients
due to the potential high infec-
tion rate of the virus resulting in
hospital overcrowding; the
shortage of medical personnel
due to high risk of infection
health workers incur and the fact

that many healthy medical per-
sonnel give priority to adminis-
tering treatment to their loved
ones; and major economic dis-
ruption since -judging from the
three major influenza outbreaks
of the last century the virus is
likely, to attack the young and
health, inflic tng great damage
to the workforce.
The only thing saving us,
says the document and this is
a point both Ramsammy and
Epstein independently con-
curred with is the fact that the
virus hasn't been able to mutate
to a form communicable enough
to cause easy and sustained hu-
man-to-human transmission.
And there are no guarantees
that this possibility is that far
According to Ramsammy,
the surface of the H5N1 virus is
covered with proteins (from
which it derives its name) which
bond via a lock and key method
- to corresponding proteins on
the surface of some human cells,
albeit imperfectly so far. H5N1
is developing various strains one

of which could some day find
the perfect "key" as it were to
the "lock" of some human cell,
making itself far more transmit-
. table.
"It could happen next
year," said Epstein during the
brief interview. "It could happen
in the next five years. We can't
say for sure."
According to Epstein and
echoed by Ramsammy histori-
cally the longest period between
major global outbreaks of influ-
enza has been 39 years; the last
outbreak occurred in 1967, 38
years ago.
"So we're due," said
If or when that occurs, ac-
cording to the faxed document,
no place on earth will be consid-
ered a safe haven from potential
exposure to H5N1 or whichever
one of its variants is behind the

The world health commu-
nity is working assiduously to
find ways of preventing what
Epstein says is "a scary picture"
posed by the Bird Flu threat.
On Friday PAHO/WHO held a
meeting to discuss the global
strategy to combat the virus.
Ramsammy told this news-
paper that while Guyana did not
have a representative at that
meeting, Guyana's membership
in PAHO guarantees that this
country will be privy to what-
ever comes out of the conference
in relation to a regional approach
to combating H5N1.
Among the leading topics
slated for discussion at that meet-
ing was the development of a
vaccine for the virus. Epstein
said, in his interview, that a vac-
cine shortage is inevitable in the
event of an H5N1 pandemic.
According to the international
health agency document in our
possession, a vaccine against
H5NI is being developed and
tested but is not yet available for
general use. Even so, the docu-

ment notes, any vaccine devel-
oped for one strain of H5N1
may not work on another and a
new vaccine may take months to
Currently Guyana gets its
main supplies of various vac-
cines from the United States and
Switzerland. Incidentally, it is a
Swiss company Roche Labo-
ratories Inc which has devel-
oped the only antiviral drug,
oseltamivir (known commer-
cially as Tamiflu), that can be
taken orally in capsules.
The Health Minister con-
cedes that Guyana depends on
the progress made in other coun-
tries in order to begin its vacci-
nation strategy against a Bird Flu
pandemic. There are few devel-
oping countries which can pro-
duce drugs like an antiviral vac-
cine to H5N1, said Ramsammy.
He said that Guyana will be ac-
tively involved in whatever re-
gional strategy is developed to
prevent or defeat a Bird Flu pan-
demic to ensure that the coun-
try receives its fair share of an
H5N1 vaccine whenever one be-
comes available.
As an added precaution,
Ramsammy said, the government
is also looking at its bilateral ties
with countries like Cuba, China,
India and Brazil all developing
countries with vaccine-produc-
ing capacity to source poten-
tial supplies of antiviral drugs in
the event of a pandemic.
Outside of vaccination there
are a few options, according to
Epstein, that international health
agencies have in their arsenal.
The first is a rapid testing
and diagnosis methods; the
second is the current avail-
ability of some antiviral drugs
to fight off illnesses that may
lead to easier H5N1 infection;
and thirdly the work cur-
rently undertaken by several
major drug companies around
the world in finding a Bird
Flu vaccine that is quickly
adaptable to changing strains
of the virus.

Ibrahim A. Gambari

ONE of the least
controversial provisions
adopted at the recent U.N.
Summit in New York was
also one of the most
promising in fact, it could
help end some of the world's
deadliest armed conflicts.
World leaders endorsed plans
by Secretary-General Kofi
Annan to strengthen the
United Nations as an honest
broker of peace accords.
The Summit's call for
enhanced U.N. mediation and
"good offices" capabilities is a
recognition of the critical role
impartial third parties including
the United Nations have played
in forging peace in many
situations around the world.
Third parties can be especially

helpful when years even
decades of killing have bred
depths of hatred that simply
cannot be bridged, unless
outsiders help the opposing
parties to build communication
and trust.
The pursuit of peace is
often a hesitant dance.
Experience has shown it can
take three to tango.
At any given time, the
U.N. Secretary-General has
dozens of special envoys
deployed worldwide,
providing good offices on his
behalf. Though they are
active today in places like
Iraq, the Middle East and the
conflict-ridden regions of
Africa, their role is not
limited to trying to stop
wars. Good offices are used
for other peaceful ends to

free hostages, for example, or
to resolve border disputes
and electoral or inter-
communal controversies
before they turn violent.
Third-party mediation is an
increasingly crowded field, with
governments, regional and non-
governmental organizations, as
well as some well-known
individuals getting involved. The
United Nations has no
monopoly. However, the
United Nations representing,
as it does, the international
community in the broadest
sense can bring unparalleled
legitimacy to the task.
U.N. mediators helped forge
seminal peace agreements in
Cambodia, El Salvador and
Guatemala during the 1990s,
ending some of the most
horrendous conflicts of our

Prime Minister Sam Hinds the iole of an advisory, liaison
and mediator for all member countries.
Every year. Countries around the world loin the UPU to
celebrate this great day.
Today. I am indeed very happy to be associated with the
UPU and the many Countries in the observance of World
Post Day.
The Theme, Reaching Everyone Everywhere, is indeed
relevant, and particularly challenging to us in Guyana where
70% of our area is thinly populated and difficult to reach.
Postal operations, the world over, have experienced many
challenges, given the new regime of liberalisation,
accompanied by the ending of monopolies, the privatization
of Post Offices and steadily emerging new methods of
sending information. The UPU reports that aggregate
business of letter-mail fell by 17 percent between 2003 and
2004 and expects that the 2005 statistics will conbnue the
The Post all around the globe have begun to review their
approach to their letter-mail business with an intention and
commitment to sustaining a service that reaches and
connects everyone everywhere. One can really see the
letter-mail business not as solely or primary one of delivering
information in letters but one delivenng material packets. At
the same time, the post in various Countnes has been trying
to stay in the information/communication business by
getting into appropriate telecommunication businesses.
This is not entirely new the telegraph moved not written
messages but the contents of those messages which were
rewritten at the receiving ends and deliver as telegrams.
Historically. the telegraph opened [he door to the
telecommunication we have today and the Post may well
consider itself the great great grandparent of all
Whilst losing the information business to the telephone, the
fax Ihe Internet le-mail). the Post ha.'e found the movement
of envelopes and parcels being stolen by courier companies

to charge the price required to sustain that ser..ice Post
Offices these days e.,en when still Slate-owned, are being
given more freedom to both compete w..ith Countines and
partner w..ith couriers. our GPOC has that freedom.
Another traditional service area of Post Offices has been
that of Savings Bank deposits and withdrawals Many Post

being transferred, customers require services that are nc4onty reliable but
affordable too Moreover. after direct investments morey transfers are
the second biggest source of funding for developing couitnes. Thanks to
the wordwide financial network, based on cutting-edge technology, which

On this day, 9 October. World Post Day 2005, I invite people all around the
world to pay a visit to a Post Office and find out what it has to offer I am
confident they will find services which are better adapted than ever to the
new information society By the same token, I invite governments, the
private sector. international organizations and members of civil society,
who share our desire to bridge the digital divide to work in partnership with
the Postal Sector with all its tremendous assets and skis. Together, by
creating lasting partnerships we can provide millions of people with fairer
access to communications and information a human night and, for the
Postal Sector, a core mission

as a unit and a body as a whole. This analysis of self
introspection allows postal operators to examine what was
done, what has to be done and what mechanisms are
required to ensure the implementation of vision into positive
Given the rapid development of communication technology
in recent times, the Postal Industry have had to respond with
alacnty to the modification of the current traditional products
and to acquire new products of a non- traditional nature to
ensure survival and organisational growth.
In Guyana, we have had to dedicate our efforts and arrange
our resources to operate the spectrum of business which
would allow us to enhance our service of communication
with our customers and at the same time keep pace with our
competitors in this new technological era. R is our every
desire to stay focus on these our mandates. We cannot and

28 SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 9, 2005



Spotsiewby i

THE entire cricketing world,
particularly the Common-
wealth countries have been
following the Indian captain
Sourav Ganguly and Greg
Chappell saga.
After more that one week of
International debate on the out-
come of the war, these two
cricketing greats who are living
in the world's most recognized
political democracy came out of
the 'hot room' with an accept-
able compromise that is-in the
interest of the further develop-
ment of Indian cricket.
Clearly, it cannot be denied
that with profound profession-
alism and great responsibility
the most sensible decision was
made and accepted.

Cricket is said to be a game

of great uncertainties. Life in it-
self is of great uncertainties.
However, it is man's upbringing,
training and preparation for all
the challenges, coupled with his
appreciation to adopt and be
flexible at all times in the chang-
ing environments that lead to
success. In the Commonwealth,
cricket is- of tremendous influ-
ence on people's lives. When
cricket is being played in India,
Pakistan, Australia, England and
South Africa the mammoth
crowds of spectators that over-
fill the grounds are a clear mani-
festation of what cricket means
in those parts of the world.
Here in the Caribbean
cricket is the force of unification
of over five million people.
When the West Indies cricket
team is playing, the entire Car-
ibbean automatically rallies be-

hind them. It was cricket that
placed the poor developing


these gentlemen were part of the
best cricket team in the world.
Further, the entire cricketing
fraternity in the world will ac-

cricket, reflected in the theme
song 'We are the Champions'.

Sourav Ganguly is the
most successful Indian
cricket captain. He did not
achieve greatness only as cap-
tain. Ganguly thrilled and
entertained millions around
the world during the period
when he scored more than
five thousand Test runs and
more that ten thousand One-
day international runs.
While he gave great satisfac-
tion and took away stress and
strains from the elderly, he
excited the young and-moti-
vated them to play and follow
the great game of cricket.
Leaders must lead. Greg
Chappell was hired to deliver a
special service to cricket and
particularly Indian cricket. The
attitude of some of our cricket-
ers seems to suggest that only
a tough foreigner can do the job.
Rohan Kanhai, Clive Lloyd,
Roger Harper, Gus Logie were
not given the same respect
while performing as coach as
when they were players. All

cept the pronouncements that
Clive Lloyd and Rohan Kanhai
are among the greatest cricket-
ers that ever walked on the
world's cricket field.
In many situations, you
will be successful in one area but
less successful in another area.
Ganguly was chosen to be cap-
tain of the Indian Test team

while one of the greatest bats-
men in the world was playing
in the team. Sachin Tendulkar,
gave his team and Ganguly his
unflinching support. Under
Ganguly's captaincy India
cricket started to climb upwards
again. He has done enough for
those in authority to demon-
strate their support, respect and
confidence in him.

Some unsettled minds re-
mained skeptical and they are
asking whether the truce would
last. How naive! How infantile.
The acceptable compromise and
that decision must prevent the
dirt from the dressing room get-
ting onto the field and be a mas-
terpiece for cricketing personali-
ties around the world to follow.
The decision of the wise men in
the east in that huge democracy
must restore the trust and mu-
tual respect among those two
great men, Ganguly and
For us in the Caribbean

Friday night after defeating Brazilian Ivomar Venancio in
the semi-finals of the competition at the Le Meridien
Pegasus courts.
Grant won two straiglit sets 6-0. 6-2.
The Brazilian looked good in his knock-up but when he
started his service game, Grant was all over his powerful serves
which hit the box ith tremendous speed. The Brazilian had no
answer to Granm's quick returns.
At 3-0 up, Grant started to pin Venancio down on the
baseline then Grant played a short drop shot just over the
net to bring Venancio in and then topspin lob him to the
back of the court. This domination by Grant made him record

the lop-sided victory.

Chappell needs

JOHN Wright, who has experienced the best and the worst
of Indian cricket during his five-year tenure as India's
coach, has asked for some time and space for Greg
Chappell, his successor, to make a difference to the Indian
Chappell has had a stormy start to his tenure and the
publication of a confidential email in which he had declared
Sourav Ganguly "mentally and physically unfit" to lead India,
has inflamed passions and polarised opinions. Despite an
uneasy truce imposed by the
Indian board, observers
visualise a difficult period
ahead if both Chappell and
Ganguly stay in their current M
Wright, however, was,
confident that Chappell.
would be able to work his
way through. "There %ill
always be a couple of bumpy
issues along the way when
you are in ,a coaching f
situation," Wright said, "but
I am sure the coach and teairn
will be able to work
together." John Wright: Coaching

discussions about Chappell's India was probably my
methods, saying that coaching most enriching cricketing
styles differed from person to experience.
person. When asked if he was
too soft on some of the players, Wright said: "The bottom line
from my perspective as a coach is I work in my way. I know
that several people made judgments on how I approached the
job and generally it's from their perspective. I know'the way I
did the job and I feel we made progress.
At the end of the day you do it the way you want to do
it. I certainly don't have qualms about not being hard in
the job.
"I think you have to ask the players about those sorts of
things. I had several years with the team I enjoyed it, I loved
the fans over there. It was probably my most enriching
cricketing experience. We took the team to a certain stage and
Greg and his team should take it a bit further forward." ;
"My last seven months with the one-day team thel form
was poor and Greg's going about sorting that out. I know that
they can play and they'll get the results." he said. "I always
felt that India could be number one.
They're ranked third in the Test rankings and one-
day form can turn around very quickly, as we showed in
the World Cup (in 2003) and the ICC Champions Trophy
(in 2004).

Pane II Sunday Chronicle October 9, 2005

ou ladies may be interested in following
ten points about ways your behaviour un-
wittingly lead a man on. Men often believe
you're flirting with them even when you're not.
Here are the ten ways you can unknowingly send
out the wrong signal:

1. Putting one more kiss at the end of an email than
he did.

Women are naturally friendly if flirting is a mountain,
they're always walking in the lower foothills. But men want
to get to the peak as soon as possible. Your extra 'x' was
done without thinking. He assumes you're starting an auc-
tion of kisses that will end up with the two of you in bed.

You're doing it simply because you can, and it amuses you.
He sees it as an early phase of the mating ritual.

8. Ignoring a call on your mobile when you're with
You hit 'divert' because it's your boss and you don't want
to talk to her but the man's ego tells him you're capti-
vated by his witty conversation.

9. Re-applying your make-up.
A fresh coat of lip-gloss makes you feel good about your-
self. He thinks it's being done to attract him.

10. Dancing with him.
It's a Luther Vandross record you'd dance with the near-
est hat-stand but your partner in boogie assumes that you
want his body.

Of course, all these are things you might do if you are
really flirting. But even if you're not, don't worry too
much wouldn't life be boring if you couldn't laugh
at men?

2. Saying you like his shirt.
The average man doesn't notice clothes if you notice his,
he'll think it's because you want to see them on your bed-
room floor.

3. Asking questions about his girlfriend. You're just
being nosy about his love life. He thinks you want a
walk-on part in it.

4. Talking about your own relationship problems.
You find it easy to discuss these things. Men don't, so he'll
imagine that you're auditioning replacements for your boy-

5. Approaching him at a party.
Men see starting a conversation as the first stage of se-
duction. They can't understand why you'd do it just to be

6. Touching his arm as you talk.

osterone can be brought to the boil by the merest brush

Petitioners lay claim to




IN 1962, 39
petitioners headed
by Hubert Dash,
approached the
Commissioner of Title,
claiming 199 605 acres
of land at Plantat'ion
Good Hope, Essequibo,
on the ground that the
land was occupied by
transport held by their
ancestors and
predecessors in title and
that they had occupied
same for agricultural
purposes, for the
statutory period.
The Commissioner of
Title, dismissed the claim af-
ter hearing that the opposer
Shrikishun had laid claim to
the land as his own and as
falling within the transport of
Pin. Spring Garden.
The plaintiffs appealed
the decision and the Court of
Appeal ruled in favour of the
plaintiffs, setting aside the
Commissioner's ruling and
ordering that he (the Com-
missioner) should take addi-
tional evidence in the matter
at a new hearing.

The facts of the case dis-
closed that on the evidence
before the Commissioner of
Title, the petitioners claimed
that the disputed areas of
land fell within the transport
of Pin. Good Hope, which
transport was held by their
ancestors and predecessors
in title and that they had al-
ways occupied the area, by
farming, rearing cattle, cut-
ting timber, picking fruits,
etc., under the belief that the
area formed part of Pin. Good
Hope. But quite apart from
that, they had been in posses-
sion since the year 1901.
The opposition in the
matter between Hubert Dash
et al versus Bhagwan Jairam
Persaud, representing the es-
tate of Shrikishun, also laid
claim to the land as his own
as falling within the transport
of Pin. Spring Garden and
that he had been in posses-
sion for the statutory period.
The Commissioner of Title
considered that it was not the
duty of the Court to deter-
mine whether or not the land
claimed was Spring Garden or
Good Hope..
He refrained from making


a finding as to occupation
because he felt that the land
had not been properly iden-
tified and because he also felt
that the petitioners were a
fluctuating and undefined
body which was not capable
of taking title. He accordingly
dismissed the petition.
The Court of Appeal con-
stituted by Chief Justice
Harold Boilers and justices of
Appeal Guya Persaud and Vic-
tor Crane, held: ,
(i) the Commis-
sioner was in error in declin-
ing to determine whether or
not the land was Spring Gar-
den of Good Hope;
(ii) the disputed
area formed the southern por-
tion of Pin. Spring Garden;
(iii) the petitioners
were not a fluctuating body
of persons, but were a clearly
defined group of individuals;
(Iv) the matter
would be referred to the Com-
missioner of Title with a direc-
tion that he should proceed
to make a finding as to

whether the petitioners or
the opposer had been in oc-
cupation of the disputed area
for the statutory period.

At the hearing of the ap-
peal, the appellants were rep-
resented by Mr. Clarence
Hughes, S. C., while Dr.
Fenton Ramsahoye with Mr.
Martin Zephyr represented
the respondent.
In delivering the judg-
ment of the Appellate Court,
Chief justice Boilers recalled
that in 1962, in the Su-
preme Court of British
Guyana, the appellants filed
a joint petition for a decla-
ration of title in respect for
the County of Essequibo and
Colony of British Guiana con-
taining 199 605 acres a por-
tion of land west of the
public road, being part of
the southern portion of Pin.
Spring Garden. The land Is
displayed on a plan by J. A.
Kranenburg, sworn Land sur-
veyor, dated January 12,
1961, and recorded in the
Department of Lands and
Mines as Plan. No. 991 of
July 18, 1861.
According to the judg-
ment, there were 39 petition-
ers, and an affidavit in sup-
port of the petition was filed
by two of the petitioners -
Hubert Dash and Samuel
Horn on behalf of them-
selves and the other petition-

ers, in which they alleged that
they and or their predecessors
in title occupied the said land
for a long period prior to the
year 1926, and that they, at all
material times, worked upon
the said land and enjoyed,
used and occupied the same
for their sole use and benefit,
without interference from
anyone. They then set out in
their affidavit the dates upon
which each petitioner enjoyed
the sole use and undisturbed
possession of the land.
It was the further allega-
tion that the petitioners in
their own right had used and
enjoyed the land for more
than a period of 33 years by
farming, rearing cattle, burn-
ing coal, cutting the growing
timber thereon, picking and
carrying away coconuts and
other fruits, and have used
and enjoyed the dams and
drainage trenches thereon for
the purpose of ingress and
egress to and from the vari-
ous parts Of the said land
and the; trenches thereto
solely for themselves and
without disturbance from
anyone over the said period
of time.
Finally, said the Chief Jus-
tice, it is alleged that the right
of every other person to re-
cover the said land has ex-
pired or been barred and the
title of every such person
thereto has been extin-

The Chief Justice went on
to say, "we are of the view
that the learned Commis-
sioner was in error when he
felt -that it was not the duty
of the court to determine
whether or not the land
claimed was Spring Garden or
Good Hope.
"On the evidence, it was
his clear duty to have made
up his mind which evidence
he accepted as being true
and which evidence, he dis-
carded as being untrue, and
then to have made a specific
finding as to whether the dis-
puted area fell within the pe-
titioners' transport as alleged
by them, or the transport of
the opposer. And then it was
his further duty to have pro-
ceeded to have made a find-
ing on occupation.
"We conceive that on
the evidence before us, we
are in as good a position as
the Commissioner was to
determine the first issue,
that is, whether the disputed
area was covered by the
transport in relation to Good
Hope or whether It was
covered by the opposer's
transport in relation to the
southern portion of Pin.
Spring Garden, and we are
firmly of the view, after an
examination of the plans

by Petamber Persaud
OF THE ten
writers known
to this author with
birth anniversaries In
the month of October,
five are women; all five
have made varying
degrees of Impact on
Guyanese literature by
eking a niche on that
landscape as they
showed the value and
import of women
writing in a developing
society. Three of the
five women have made
contributions to the
small category of
children's literature,
filling that lacuna.
However, all ten writers
are worthy of note..
Ada Debidin, born Octo-
ber 1, 1913, is definitely the
oldest writer to publish a first
book. In 2004, when she wps
ninety-one, she published
'Short Stories', a collection of
seven stories for children. She
was fifty-four when, 'Lines at
. iartica', her first published
poem came out in 'The
Chronicle Christmas Annual'
of 1967.
She has a collection of.
poems titled 'The Search to
be published soon.
Chandr Paul Persaud also

known as Paul O'Hara born
October 2, 1913, has about 17
pen-names. A clever pen-man
of class and quality, Guyana's
oldest living reporter/journal-
Ist, Uncle Paul has also writ-
ten songs, the story of a lo-
cal movie and edited the
'Guiana Review',' Indian Opin-
ion' and 'New. Outlook'.
He is still packaging and
churning out fascinating sets
of facts (similar to the nature
of this article) in an instruc-
tive and entertaining manner
in order to make them stick,
forever burnished on the
brain. (Oh, he claims many
books that made their au-
thors were written at his feet!)
Cleveland Hamilton,

October 13, 1923, was a poet,
playwright, broadcaster, and
political activist who estab-
lished herself as the first
recognized East Indian
woman.writer In Guyana. She
pioneered and enhanced the
slighted 'coolie art forms' and
became the surrogate cultural
and artistic mother to
younger writers and artists.
John Campbell, born Oc-
tober 19, 1925, was a poet,
playwright, actor and artist. In
1957, he won the University of
the West Indies award with
the play 'Come Back to
Melda'. He published seven
collections of poems, a collec-
tion of famous murder sto-
ries, a collection of five one-
act plays and a monograph.
He edited 'Writers In Uni-
form', the Police magazine
and the Police Copper news-
paper. He placed third in the
Gandhi Memorial Art Compe-
tition with a painting titled,
'Crosby Office'. He alsoacted
as 'Charlie' in 'Moon on the
Rainbow Shawl' and as 'Chief'
in a play by Slade Hopkinson
entitled 'Fall of a Chief'.
Campbell fell from the stage
of lire sometime in the late
1980s. .

People's Progressive Party. To
date, she has written five chil-
dren books and edited 'The
Lure of the Mermaid and
other Children's Stories' and
'The Alligator Ferry Service and
other stories from Guyana',
making her the most prolific
writer of children's literature
in Guyana.
Dennis Craig, (please see

22, 1929, was an educator,
linguist, painter and poet
who won the Guyana Prize
for Literature for Best First
Book of Poetry in 1998. His
poem 'Flowers' was his most
anthologised piece and one
of the best-known poems
throughout the Caribbean.
Mahadal Das, (please see
Sunday Chronicle February
20, 2005 for details) born Oc-.

tober 22, 1954, published
three collections of poems.
Peepal Tree Press Is to honour
her memory with a forthcom-
ing anthology, 'A Leaf in his
Ear: Selected Poems'.
In 1998, Merlin October.
Persaud born October 23,
1985, took up an unlikely chal-
lenge from the Secondary
Schools Reform Project, Min-
.Istry of Education, by writing

a collection of 24 poems.
Soon after, two of those po-
ems found their way Into the
'Guyana Christmas Annual
1999'. In the 2001 Issue of the
same magazine, his short
story 'Overkill' was published.
The evidence is clear
that from the oldest to the
youngest man, woman or
child the climate for writ-
ing is encouraging'. The fu-
ture for Guyanese.literature
Is bright.

the year, September, produced nine

WORLD Habitat

1985 and since then is
celebrated annually on
the first Monday in
The theme for this year's
Habitat Day was 'The

In a world fated with a
continual flow of poor
people whose considerable
contribution to the economy
is rarely matched by their
access to services, a key
challenge is to significantly

increase the level of pro-poor
investment to transform cities
into proactive developers of
better infrastructure, housing
and water supply.
People have always been
moving from rural to urban
areas. This trend exists now
more than ever. As people try
to take advantage of
opportunities in town and
cities it is essential that they
be provided with basic
services of shelter, water and
sanitation. Without access to
these basic services, cities
become slums and the most
life threatening environments
on Earth.
Already half of the
world's population lives in
cities and towns. The reality
is that
at least one billion people
in urban settings suffer from
the dangers arid indignities
associated with the lack of
clean water arqd adequate
sanitation. In Africa, more
than half of the people living

that the number of
inadequately served urban
dwellers is much higher than
officially acknowledged.
To improve services to the
poor in cities it is critical that
more money be invested, in
small-scale projects and at the
local and national levels to
build up essential infrastructure.
Emphasis must be placed on
involving communities in voicing
their concerns and in
contributing to managing their
environments. Good
governance and public-private
partnerships are equally
important in managing these
basic services. And since as
much as 50 per cent of a

to the devolution of the title, that the disputed! area fell within the transport of the opposer
in relation to the southern portion of Plantation Spring Garden" the Chief Justice
After perusing the evidence, the judge noted that the point was raised by counsel for the
respondent that a declaration of title for the di puted area could not be made in a Joint peti-
tion by the several petitioners who each clAimedi to be in possession of the disputed area sepa-
rately, as there was no evidence of a joint undertaking to occupy the whole of the area.
Chief justice Boilers added: "This submission does not find favour with us as it\ is clearly
answered by the orders, the effect of which is ihat all persons may be joined in an action (and
an action includes any proceedings) as plaintiffs, in whom the right to relief in respect of or
arising out of the same transaction is alleged tb exist whether jointly or severally, where such
persons are interested in a common question of law or fact, or where they have a common
interest in the cause of matter.
"The appeal must therefore be allowed, Aind the Order of the Commissioner set aside.
The matter is remitted to the Commissioneriwith an intimation that this Court finds that
the evidence discloses that the disputed area of land is, in fact, the southern portion of
Plantation Spring Garden held under transport by the opposer Srikishun, and with a direc-
tion that the Commissioner do proceed to lake a finding as to whether the petitioners
were in occupation of the disputed area for |the statutory period or whether the opposer
was in possession of the said land and to take evidence and hear a further arguments if
necessary,"' Chief Justice Boilers declared.



Cities and towns have
always been centres of
opportunity, but without
adequate shelter and basic
services, urban environments
can be among the most life
threatening on Earth. In
agreeing on the Millennium
Development Goals,
Governments pledged to
halve the number of people
without clean water and
decent sanitation by 2015,
and to improve the living
conditions of at least 100
million slum dwellers by
2020. On World Habitat Day,
let us all pledge to do our
part to ensure adequate
sanitation and clean water
for all the inhabitants of the
world's cities.

Write a Learning Log
Let us help you do something new to aid learning. You
need to begin to construct a learning log. A learning log
is what you could do in a note book about your English
Language, Mathematics, Social Studies or Science les-
sons. You can keep the entries going for a week. At the
end of the week. re-read the entries you have made. Then
think about how the jottings have made helped you un-
derstand your class sessions. Also, notice what different
forms of record keeping you have been using in the log.
After you have done all of that, you can then write an
entry saying what you think about your experience.
Let us now itemize what you have to do:
* Write on a regular basis in your note book; write
for at least three to five minutes for each class session.
* Begin each entry with a brief summary of the class
* Make a note of any idea or concept that you find
* End by describing the next assignment in your
own words.
There is only good and improvement that you can get
from this activity.
The Purpose: To clarify concepts discussed in class
TheAudience: Yourself
The Length: 2-4 paragraphs

The Passage
The news crackled around the world. Gold had been dis-
covered in the Yukon in the year 1896!
All over the earth a million people rushed to their maps.
Where was the Yukon, anyway? Who had ever heard it?
And then, on their maps, they found it. It was Canadian
territory just east of Alaska and not far south of the Arctic
Here, in the mountains where the Yukon begins its west-

ward rush, there was gold. It lay ready for the taking,
deep in the rocky hills. The cataracting streams that
leaped off the mountainsides ground some of it to dust,
mixed it with gravel and mud, and carried it along. All one
needed was a pick and shovel to crack the rocks, or a
pan and screen to sift the river mud.
It was a romantic, exciting prospect. Afew years or months
of hardship could produce a great fortune for a man who
had spirit and strength. It could make him rich forever.
And so men went by the thousands to the land of gold.
They were ministers, doctors, gamblers, thieves, cow-
boys, hunters, professors men and women from every
walk of life. They came from Europe and all over the
United States and Canada. Some with haunted eyes came
because of greed. Some came because of adventure.
Some came out of a terrible need. Quick money could
bring health to sick dear ones or rebuild a lost fortune.
And some came like vultures to prey upon the fortunes of
The best way to the Yukon was by boat up the west coast
of America to the port of Skagway in southern Alaska.
From there the way was by foot over the mountains,
through the dreaded Chilkoot Pass.
An endless file of men and women, hanging on to each
other's coats, wavered like a pencil line across these
mountains. The gold seekers floundered, trudged,
climbed, sobbed with cold and hunger and despair, but
pushed on. Many fell and died, and the mountain snows
claimed them forever.
Those who reached the other side of the mountains rested
at the riverside and waited for summer to come and free
the river of ice. Then in a great fleet, they sailed down
the river to the gold fields in anything that would float -
rafts, canoes, barges, pirogues, steamboats, dinghies fit-
ted with sails. The river claimed its victims, too, and it
was said they died not of drowning but of gold fever.

to a better, more simple,
everyday life anywhere. 'Drum
Boogie' is the famous
nightclub tune, by Krupa
\which was popularised by the
splendid 1940s film, 'Ball of
fire', in which Barbara
Stanwyck sings like O'Day with
Krupa and band in live
performance. But 'Let me off
uptown' is the tune where
O'Day and Eldridge use words
like 'groove', and 'uptown' to
suggest open intimate
consent between male and
female of different races.
During the hit jazz they begin
a dialogue. Anita: 'Hey Joe!'
Roy: 'What do you mean Joe,
my name's Roy!' Anita: 'Well
come here Roy and get
groovn'. You been uptown?'
Roy: 'No I ain't been uptown,
but I been around!' Anita: 'You

Then Anita starts to sing about

'Let me off uptown' is
one of the greatest swing
jazz classics because it
promoted good social and
community values among
diverse people, or citizens.
Whereas downtown is
usually regarded as
commercial city areas,
uptown came to be known
as those integrated areas in
civilised ambitious cities,
where low rental
neighborhoods encouraged
growth through an influx of
busy workers, artists,
musicians, intellectuals,
students, jazz cafes, clubs,
cinemas, studios, bookstores,
music stores, boutiques,
shops, art galleries,
restaurants, etc. Such city
areas encouraged a relaxed
productive social life where
people of any race came to
accept each other with ease,
and therefore enjoyed their
O'Day's jazz vocals often
promoted this desire to
cultivate pleasures rather than
prejudice, as in the coy bluesy
vocal: "Boogie Blues', where
she sings:' He's got a face like
a fish, feel like a frog, but
when he loves me, I holler ooh
hot dog!'
Krupa instrumentals on
the album, like 'After you're
gone' and 'Leave us leap', are
swing jazz at its hottest, which
made girls kick up their heels
and spin on the dance floor.
O'Day and Eldridge made
Krupa's band famous long
before they went off to make
numerous excellent jazz
albums with other bands.
O'Day was the first female
jazz vocalist to appear in short
skirts and shirts, instead of
long dresses and gloves. But
she did appear in dress and
gloves in the film 'Jazz on a
summer day',, where her
unforgettable live
performance stunned patrons.
In 1945, she recorded
'Opus No. One' with Krupa's
band, and this is one of the
best tunes of swing jazz where
her unique style along with
Krupa's hot drumming and his
band's rocking dance rhythms
leave us in awe. She starts to
sing these poetic lines after an
instrumental opening. 'They're
rocking their brains to think
of a name to give to this tune
so Franky can prove, and Lady
O'Day will give it a fling, and
that will start everyone
humming a thing...But if you
can swing, it's got a good
beat, and that's the main
thing, so make with the feet,
cause Rockin' Rhythm's ruling
the Day'. When performing
'Opus No. One' in clubs, O'Day
would move her hips and feet
in time to the band's hot
jumping rhythm and beat, and
everyone came alive on the
dance floor.

precious CD because it offers

of local postage stamps

Prepared by Mr. LennoxJulian Hernandez,
Senior Lecturer, Department ofArchitecture,
University of Guyana, for the National Trust
of Guyana.

JULY 1, 2005, marked the
155th anniversary of the
first issue of postage
stamps from this country,
then known as British
Guiana. Sometime in
1850, details for the estab-
lishment of an inland
mail service were drawn
up. A notice published in
the Royal Gazette of Brit-
ish Guiana on June 15,
1850, gave. notice of its
implementation from July
1 of the same year. A sup-
ply of stamps was ordered
from London, Great Brit-
ain, but the implementa-

tion date was so soon
that it was decided to de-
sign and print our first
stamps locally.
The service was for areas
out of Georgetown and the
postage varied according to
distance from the city, with a
minimum rate of four cents
an ounce. The notice gave a
list of places, receiving offices
and the rates of postage: the
first denominations of post-
age stamps being four, eight
and 12 cents. Eight months
later, on March 1, 1851, a new
service with a new denomina-
tion of stamp was introduced.
The new service was a house-

to-house delivery of letters
through the main streets of
the city for which a new
stamp, the now valuable two
cents denomination, was is-
The first stamps issued by
British Guiana are known to
stamp collectors as

circular shape. They were a
completely local effort,
printed by typeset (a simple
method of printing) by the
office of the Royal Gazette of
British Guiana. The stamps
have been described as being
of.'the utmost simplicity' con-
sisting of the denomination

was 'British Guiana' in Roman
capitals, all enclosed in a
rough circle of about an inch
in diameter. Being so simple

What is meant by Insurable Income?


Insurable Income means the weekly or monthly income
on which contributions are paid by an Insured Person,
and is subject to an upper limit which is determined by
the Board on the basis of four times the weekly or
monthly minimum wage prevailing in the Public Service.

The current weekly and monthly Insurable Income
Ceiling is $21,420.00 and $92,817.00 respectively.

Great Britain continuing to be
used for overseas postage. It
was not until 1860 that local
stamps were put in use for
overseas postage as a result
of postal reforms in the West
Indies initiated by the Victo-
rian novelist, Anthony Trollope
(1815-82) who visited the
country in 1859, whilst on as-
signment from the British
Post Office.
Guyana (British Guiana)
has the distinction of being
among the very few countries
that have the world's rare
stamps its issues. Guyana's'

most celebrated stamp, the
British Guiana one cent black
on magenta of 1856, known
to philatelists as the Black
Magenta, is listed among the

few unique stamps of the
world: it is the most famous
(and the most expensive) of
the rare stamps.
Typical of newly
independent countries,
Guyana said goodbye to its
colonial postage stamp
heritage in 1966, by issuing a

independence': the definitive

were overprinted with
'Guyana Independence-1966'.
On the same date, May 26,

1966, the first postage stamps
with the name 'Guyana'
instead of 'British Guiana' in
its design, were issued in
four denominations: the five
cents and 15 cents portray

Guyana, while the 25 cents

country's coat-of-arms.

Hello boys and girls,

It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll continue looking at the Flower and
the different part that makes it look so beau-
tiful and precious to the naked eye.

It has been said that 'The only certain thing about
Life is Death'. In other words, all living things
must eventually die. Obviously there must be
some way of replacing the losses brought about
by death, and this process is reproduction. Re-
production includes all the ways employed by
plants and animals for the increasing their num-

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this Social Studies input. What do
you want to do for a livelihood? Tell it to your
mother, father or a trusted friend. Be realistic
in your plan, though. Some time in your sec-
ondary school years you'll be asked to indicate
the answer to your teacher. You may however
want to have a change of heart at that time after
considering a better and wider range of career
paths. Anyhow, study hard now! Love you.

How do plants reproduce?

The flowers of a plant are its reproductive organs.
Their function is to produce the seeds from which
young plants can grow. Examine a plant of pride
of Guyana (The Water Lilly), or of any other avail-
able plant which is in flower. Notice that the flow-
ers are carried in groups (inflorescences), not
one by one. Make a sketch of an inflorescence.
Show the relative positions of buds, flowers
which are just opening, old flowers, and devel-
oping fruits. Tie a small label to one of each of

This week we're going to check our direction a bit
and deal with some skills for life. It is fast becoming
a very important area of the curriculum. Two life skills
were brought to the explanation table now,

Making decisions: This skill is centred upon posi-
tive reasoning. Deciding constructively about life is
at the core of this skill. This means that every deci-
sion you make must never be a destructive one. Do

SChronicle October 9, 2005

When you get to know about problem solving better,
you will see that the more information you know about
a situation, the better it is to make a decision. You
will also become aware that you need to have a closer
look at the different options as they present them-
selves, and the effects that different decisions may
have on a situation.

We mentioned creative thinking. What is it all about?

Creative thinking contributes to both decision-
making and problem solving. They enable you to
explore the alternatives that are available and the
various consequences of your actions and non-ac-
tions. It helps you to see beyond your direct experi-
ence. Even if no problem is identified or no decision
is to be made, creative thinking can help you respond
adaptively and with flexibility to the situations of your
daily life. In other words you will not be afraid of

Wouldn't it be good if you can generate new ideas
about things that are ordinarily taken for granted"
That is how some people get more out of situations
than others. You too can see what others persons
present or absent do not see. You should be willing
to go beyond the realms of the ordinary every-day
thoughts about things. In other words your creativity
can able you to prosper where/when others don't!

Have you ever thought how some children get more
marks than. others in an assignment? Those chil-
dren apply themselves to the questions and their situ-
ations and bring to them original interpretations.
Look at story writing. How can some children write
so fluently and in good taste while others barely
scratch some lines? Those successful ones have
been reading and keeping their eyes open to all that
is going on around them to use them back in some
shape and size in the classroom. They discuss these
with interested partners also. You can try to do like-
w ise. *. r ,,h ,

these on the inflorescence which you drew and
examine them every day for the next week to see
what changes they undergo. How long is the
flower open before it starts to wither? How long
does it take for a flower to produce a fruit?

Anatomy a Flower

Experiment: Make a drawing of the outside
of a bud. Then unfold the bud, and count the num-
ber of petals, pistils, sepals, and stamens. Com-
pare the size and shapes of the parts of the bud
with those of a freshly open flower. Now look at
on old flower. Which parts wither first? Can you
see which part of the fruit is developing from?
What are the sepals and pistil for? Next take a
fully opened flower and carefully take it to pieces
(apart). Lay the parts side by side on a sheet of
white paper ands examine them with a lens.
Draw one sepal, two petals (including the upper
one), one stamen and the pistil. Label the parts
of the stamen and of the pistil. Now take an-
other flower with the help of a razor-blade cut it
down the middle into equal parts. Make a la-
beled drawing of one part. This drawing will
show the way in which the different parts of the
flower are attached to the receptacle at the top
of the flower stalk.

5. The place was a mess, but they felt lucky be-
cause they hadn't lost nothing that was really im-

2. Editing Checklist
Before handing up your written work, always do an
edit. This is a good practice which helps you be-
come a better writer. Here is a list of what you have
to ask yourself and to get fixed:
* Have I avoided sentence fragments?
* Have I used commas correctly in a sen-
* Have I avoided double negatives?
* Are my pronoun references clear?
* Have I checked spellings of any words I'm
unsure of?

Descriptive Writing
Good descriptive writing depends on the creation
of vivid word pictures and the organization of those
pictures into an effective pattern. Look at how the
writer, Stephen King, organizes details in the fol-
lowing passage to let the reader "see" the scene.
This is a model taken from Literature:
Lightning flared in a blue sheet, giving Anderson a
shutter-click of what she had come to think of as
her neighbours did as her dooryard. She saw the
truck, with the first drops of rain on its windshield;
the short dirt driveway; the mailbox with its flag down
and tucked securely against its aluminum side; the
writhing trees. Thunder exploded a bare moment
later, and Peter jumped against her, whining. The
lights went out. They didn't bother dimming or flick-
ering or messing around; they went out all at once,
completely They went out with authority,
..;:Anderson reached for the lantern and then her
hand stopped'
There was s green spot on the far wall, just to
the right of Uncle Frank's Welsh dresser. It bobbed
up two inches, moved left, then right. It disappeared
for a moment and then came back.
She turned toward Peter, hearing the tendons in
her neck creak like dirty doorhinges, knowing what
she was going to see. The light was coming from
Peter's eye. His left eye. It glared with the witchery
green light of St. Elmo's fire drifting over a swamp
after a still, muggy day.
Stephen King, The Tommyknockers

In the beginning paragraph, King helps
bring the scene to life with vivid images
like "lightning flared in a blue sheet" and
"thunder exploded a bare moment later."

In the last paragraph, look to see the
effectiveness in. "hearing the tendons in
her neck creak like rusty hinges" is an
effective image. Why do you think so?

Organise Details in Spatial Order
Good descriptive writing depends upon the effec-
tive use of details, and the organisaation of those
details into meaningful patterns. One natural way
of organizing 'descriptive writing is to arrange de-
tails in spatial order that is, left to right, front to
back, near to far, clockwise, or counterclockwise.
How did Iowa writer, Sharon Oard Warner organise
the details of her description? Read the Literature
model below:
The pediatric waiting room is divided into two un-
equal sections by a length of Plexiglas that juts out
into the middle of the room. A table at one end keeps
people from walking into the flat edge. Orange and
brown upholstered chairs line both sides of this
transparent wall, back to back, as though some
enormous game of musical chairs is about to be-
gin. The smaller section of the room is reserved
for well patients, and a prominent sign directs the
rest of us to the other side.
When I carried Jancy in this morning, I stopped
in the entrance, momentarily confused. Some re-
decorating had gone on since our last visit. A large
oval braided rug covered an expanse of institutional
carpet in the unwell section, and a baby not much
older than Jancy was seated in the middle of it.
While I watched, he crawled to the edge and then
back again, as though the rug were an island and
he was marooned.
Sharon Oard Warner, "A Simple Matter of Hunger"

Notice how "island" and
"marooned" reinforce the
sense of rigidly divided space.

A point to note: When you write descriptions, you
can use prepositional phrases, as Warner does, to
establish spatial relationships between objects.

Prepositional Phrases
A prepositional phrase is a group of words that be-
gins with a preposition and usually ends with a noun
or a pronoun, called the object of the preposition.
I voted against the idea. [Idea is the object of the
preposition against.]
The elevator is necessary for us. [Us is the object
of the preposition for.]
The poet Nikki Giovanni was born in 1943. [The
date 1943 is the object of the preposition in.]
Reminder: A preposition is a word that shows the
relationship of a noun or pronoun to some other

word in a sentence.

On your paper,, list the prepositions that appear
in each of the following sentences. Remember
that some prepositions are made up of more
than one word. (The numeral in brackets at the
end of each item indicates the number of prepo-
sitions in that sentence.)

1. Willis O'Brien, a creator of special effects for
the early film industry, pioneered the use of rub-
ber and clay models in movies. (4)

2. Shooting the film frame by frame and chang-
ing the position of the model slightly between
shots, he created illusionary movement. (3)

3. By means of this method, O'Brien shot an ex-
perimental film with a clay dinosaur that
"roamed" through a miniature set. (3)

4. Since the dinosaur's movements looked too
choppy in this first attempt, O'Brien shot a sec-
ond version, using dinosaurs made from rubber
and metal instead of clay and wood. (3)

5. Six years after this film, which was distributed
throughout the United States of America, O'Brien
worked on a full-length movie concerning dino-
saurs in a South American jungle. (5)

6. During one scene, a brontosaurus is brought
across the ocean to London, where it escapes
and runs around the city. (4)

7. In addition to his dinosaur models, O'Brien
used scenery painted onto glass panes that he
positioned in front of the action. (3)

8. Because of ()'Brien's skill, models and sets
were transforrr d into believable monsters and
jungles on the ovie screen. (3)

9. A Giant gorilla, which is now known as King
Kong, was created by O'Brien. (2)

WHAT are some of the conditions and
circumstances which can cause or
aggravate bad breath? The most
common source of bad breath is related to the
presence of oral bacteria. In the presence of
decayed teeth, tartar and plaque, the breath will
generally be offensive. There are, however' other
factors which also influence the odour of one's
breath, and, in fact, the quality of a person's
breath is multifactorial.
Conditions which promote the growth of oral bacteria in-
clude, notcleaning, or not being able to clean those areas
where oral bacteria reside. While later on we will discuss the
specifics of why bacteria cause odours, and specifically how to
clean these bacteria away, for right now at this point in our
discussion, just realise that anything which promotes oral bac-
terial growth will most likely promote bad breath too.
How do foods cause bad breath? Everyone knows that cer-
tain foods have a reputation for causing bad breath, possibly
the two most notorious ones are garlic and onions. When
foods are digested, their component molecules are absorbed
by our bodies and subsequently carried off in our blood stream.
Some of these molecules, which can have very unique and un-
pleasant odiours, will be released into our lungs as our blood
flows through them. As we exhale, our breath will carry these
offending n molecules out of our bodies.
While this type of bad breath can be annoying or em-
barrassing this is not the type of breath problem we will
discuss in detail except to say that this condition which is
related to the consumption of certain foods will resolve
on its own in a day or so as your body completes the pro-
cess of brQaking down and utilising or else excreting the
offending molecules. You can control this type of bad breath
simply by avoiding or minimising your consumption of these
You are probably familiar with people who have "smoker's
breath".. While the odour associated with smoking is multifac-
torial, a great part of it is related tf the tar, nicotine, and other
foul smelling substances derived from tobacco smoke which
accumulates ion a person's teeth and the soft tissues of the
mouth (fongqe, cheeks, gums).
Short of quitting smoking, there is no effective way to to-
tally elirrinat smoker's breath, although immaculate oral, hy-
giene can help reduce it. As a contributing factor, the act of
smoking does have a drying effect on oral tissues. Decreased
moisture in tlie mouth limits the washing and buffering effect
of saliva Ion oral bacteria and their waste products. 1
It's aiknovn fact that persons who smoke have a tendency'
to have problems with periodontal disease (gum disease) than
those whfo don't. The causative agent of periodontal disease
is bacteria. i
Even f you don't have significant problems with bad breath,
you probably have noticed that your breath is least pleasant

when you first wake in the morning. This is because while we
rest, our mouth dries out, due to our body's natural tendency
to reduce saliva flow when we sleep. The result of this mouth
dryness is "morning breath".
This same souring effect is often noticed by teachers and
lawyers whose mouths have become dry after speaking for pro-
longed periods of time. Persons with chronically dry mouth, a
condition term "xerostomia", tend to have more difficulty keep-
ing their breath pleasant.
Moisture in our mouth helps to cleanse it. The presence of
moisture encourages us to swallow. Each swallow we take
washes away millions of bacteria, as well as the debris and food
particles on which they feed. Moisture also dilutes and washes
away the waste products created by the bacteria which live in
our mouths.

The Dentist Advise!*

Saliva is the body's natural mouth rinse. Beyond the waslh
ing and diluting effect that it produces, saliva also contain,
special compounds which kill oral bacteria. In addition, it con
tains other ones which buffer the effects of bacterial waste
When our mouth dries out, all of the benefits which mois-
ture can produce are lessened. The net result is that condition
for bacterial growth are enhanced while the neutralisation c
bacterial waste products is reduced. Sometimes a, dry mouth i
experienced as a side effect of the medication a person is tak
ing. Antihistamines (allergy and cold medications), antidepre,-
sants, blood pressure agents, diuretics, or anti-anxiety medical
tions are each known to produce xerostomia.
As a person ages, they may find mouth dryness to become
more of a problem. It seems that with age, our salivary glands
tend to work less effectively, and the composition of our saliva
changes also. Both of these factors result in less effective sali-
vary cleansing and buffering.
Compounding the problems associated with mouth dry-
ness, long-term sufferers of xerostomla are known to have
an increased susceptibility to periodontal disease (gum dis-
ease) which, of course, is a major cause of bad breath.

Gestation (Pregnancy)

LAST week, I promised that we
would today deal with the
normal values associated with
pregnancy. Before we go any
further with this topic, it
would be worthwhile for pet
owners or any other breed/
care giver to understand that
biology is not like mathemat-
ics. In the latter discipline, for
example, two plus two is al-
Gestation Periods

ways equal to four. In Biology,
however, although we speak
of a nine-month pregnancy,
actually a woman can give
birth at 8 1/2 months, 8 3/4
months, nine months plus
one week, and so on. Simi-
larly, relative to the individual
reaction to disease, different
biological organisms react in
all sorts of different ways. I
recall six brothers sleeping in
one bed for most of their

young lives, but when an out-
break of measles hit the
household, only alternate
boys in the fixed sleeping ar-
rangement contracted the
disease. And I think we all
know how individuals react
differently to medication. In
fact, it has been known that
the same body, after taking
the same medications for
years, suddenly develops an
allergic reaction to the drug.

Wool breeds




Barbary Ape
Bear (black)
Deer (Virginia)
Elk, Wapiti
Kangaroo (red)
Monkey (macaque)

Rhinoceros (African)
Squirrel (gray)
Whale (sperm)


The point I am stressing is
that I cannot state definitively
an exact length of gestation
for a dog or a cat.
Gestation is the period
from conception to birth. As
calculated from the day of
first successful mating, preg-
nancy in dogs, using an easy
to remember figure, would
be about two months (60
days). Let me hasten to add
that puppies born on the 58th
or 60th day fall within the
normal range. My own expe-
rience shows that if the pup-
pies are born before the 56th
day of pregnancy, they will be
probably too young/weak/
underdeveloped to survive.
Below I have listed the

gestation period of animals
that the Merck Veterinary
Manual (that reference
"bible" of veterinarians) has

Next week, we'll look at
the aging of dogs and the

Cookery Corner

Welcome to the 368"'t edition of
"Champion Cookery Corner", a
/ weekly feature giving recipes and
tips on cooking in Guyana.

Egg allergy -especially to egg whites is more common in children than in adults and reactions range from
child mildto severe. Mild reactions tend to involve the skin and gastrointestinal tracts. Severe allergy can be
instantaneous. If you suffer from egg allergy, strictly avoiding eggs and food containing egg and egg
products is the only way to prevent a reaction. But, it is not always easy to avoid these foods since many
unsuspecting products contain egg. Here are 2 delicious recipes to help you still enjoy sweet treats!

For the cake:
I 'cupswhite flour
1 teaspoon Champion Baking Powder
6 tablespoons brown sugar
_, cup butter
3 tablespoons milk
3 mediurn bananas
Caramel icing:
2 cups icing sugar
6 tablespoons butter
'/2 cup brown-n sugar
2 tablespoons sour creamC

Preheat oven to 180'C / 350"F. Use a 900g ; 21b loaf tin.
Grease and line the loaf tin. Cream butter sugar until light
and fluffy. Mash the bananas and stir in. Fold in the sifted
dry ingredients and milk. Pour the mixture into the prepared
tin and bake for about I hour. Allow to stand for 10 minutes
before turning on to wire rack to cool.
Caramel icing: Melt the butter and sugar in saucepan,
stirring constantly over the heat without boiling for 2
minutes. Add the sour cream and bring to the boil. Remove
from heat mand'stir in the'sifted icing sugar. Allow to cool.
