Heart clinic may open month-end

By ShaWnel Cudjoe

GUYANESE born Dr. Alfred Sparman is
hoping to have Guyana's first cardiology
clinic up and running before month-end, a
move that GO-INVEST Head, Mr.
Geoffrey DaSilva said indicates the pri-
vate sector's growing interest in Guyana's

public health sector.

interventional cardiologist a

not yet completed his formal

said pieces of equipment, such
as the EKG machine, are already
being brought into the country.
He would visit two or three
times every month, he said.
With the state-of-the-art fa-
cility, persons would no longer
be required to travel to
neighboring Caribbean territo-
ries such as Trinidad and To-
bago and Barbados for surgery.
According to Dr. Sparman,
doctors and nurses are currently
being interviewed for the run-

Dr. Sparman said that the

clinic will focus a lot of atten-

blood vessels using x-rays. A

addition, stress tests will also
be done.

additional time to set up a sur-

Ministry begins to

stockpile anti-Bird Flu drug

GUYANA is continuing its
preparations for a potential
global outbreak of Avian In-
fluenza (H5NI, commonly
called 'Bird Flu'), with the
planned acquisition of a first
batch of the leading antiviral
drug on the market. This is
against the backdrop of a
looming global power
struggle over licensing and
manufacturing rights. .
The threat to Guyanese at
this time remains low: there is
no presence of the H5N1 in ei-
ther the bird populations, or in
humans here, but a release from
the Health Ministry yesterday

cautioned that this is dependent
on the global situation.
The local status report was
made as Indonesia yesterday
confirmed a fifth death from the
avian flu. Most cases of the flu
in humans have been blamed on
direct or indirect contact with
infected chickens. But scientists
fear the virus will mutate into a
form that passes easily between
humans. In that case, millions
could die and national econo-
mies could be crippled. The dis-,
ease is widespread among
Indonesian's chicken popula-
tion, which ,the Agriculture
Ministry puts at 1.4 billion.

According to the release
from the Ministry of Health, ar-
rangements have been put in
place for the purchase of 1,000.

will extend its services to ...
-Leguan from November 10-11
as efforts continue to clear
the backlog in cases of cata-
ract and other eye-related
diseases, the Government In-
formation Agency (GINA)
said yesterday.
Two ophthalmologists will
be at the Leguan Cottage Hos-
pital, along with an Immigration
officer during the two-day
screening exercise that starts at
10:00 h on Monday and 8:00 h
on Tuesday, GINA said.
On the team's return from
Leguan, the specialists will pro-
ceed to Region Five' (Mahaica/
Berbice) from November 14 -18.
The team will conduct screen-
ing exercises at the Fort
Wellington and Mahaicony Hos-
pitals and at Blairmont.
At all the locations, an Im-

migration Officer will be present
to process travel documents for
those who nill be required to
travel to Cuba for surgery. Oth-,
ers will be referred to the Low
Vision Centre at the Georgetown
Public Hospital Corporation
(GPHC) for attention.
According to GINA, last
Thursday, the team concluded
screening activities at Long
Creek, and at Kuru Kururu on
the Linden Highway.
According to Medex
Harrychand Ramu, of the Min-
istry of Health, more than 250
persons from the two areas
were screened. Eighteen persons
were diagnosed with cataract.
These have been referred to
Cuba for surgery.

two years ago has promised
to start mass-producing
oseltamivir, the basic name for
Tamiflu. According to a report
in 'Japan Today', Mongkol
Jivasantikarn, managing director
of the Thailand's state-run phar-
maceutical company has said
that Tamiflu is not patented in
his country.
The looming tug of war
over patenting and production
of oseltamivir is the latest ex-
ample of the type struggle that
has seen the management of in-
ternational pharmaceutical gi-
ants based in developed coun-

SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 6, 200.


HE firm warning has gone out to criminal
networks and all who seek to undermine the law
and order environment and the democratic
process in Guyana.
It came last Thursday from no less a
source of importance and relevance than the head of
the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), Brigadier Edward
In addressing a worship service at the start of a
month of activities to mark the 40th anniversary of the
GDF, Brigadier Collins lamented that the national
environment "is punctuated by our people's plea for
safety from danger and disaster as national security
is threatened by the wanton committal of crime."
Earlier that same day, Head of the
Presidential Secretariat and Secretary to the Cabinet,
Dr. Roger Luncheon, in referring to 'Operation Stiletto'
that involved the Guyana Police Force and the GDF, made
a most timely observation:
He told his weekly post-Cabinet media briefing
that there were reasons to suggest that the joint army
and police sweep on the village of Buxton had failed to

locate criminals and illegal weapons and ammunition.
Why? That joint, massive initiative had been
evidently "leaked". Who? That's the big, disturbing
It would clearly be in the interest of our national
security, to which the army and police are committed
to ensure that a critical assessment is urgently made
of that breach in the intelligence system of the nation's
security forces.
Crime-plagued CARICOM states like
Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, that have also fallen
victims to betrayal, from within, of intelligence in anti-
crime strategies by the security forces, are currently
engaged in initiatives to deal with such a dastardly
Dr. Luncheon said the nation should,
nevertheless, be reassured of the encouraging level
of commitment by the Joint Services to be vigilant with
patrols and other measures for quick and continuous
responses, not only in dealing with the armed criminals
in Buxton, but in other communities.
For all that's nationally known, Buxton has to
be treated as a special case in the overall anti-crime
operations by the Joint Services. Therefore, as
Luncheon said, "nothing short of a fixed continuous
presence is going to ensure consistency in the
removal of criminal elements in that village..."
For his part, Brigadier Collins, in decrying a
prevailing "feeling of hopelessness and doom" in
sections of the society as a direct result of the serious
crimes and threats to national security,- made a direct
plea to his army colleagues:
"Daily", he urged, "we must find the courage and
strength which, at one and the same time, are the
objective of tough training and the result of thorough

preparation and planning, to continue on the path
already undertaken by the Joint Services..."
Coincidentally, in echoing sentiments similar to
those separately expressed by Brigadier Collins and
Dr. Luncheon in defence of national security and for
a peaceful environment, Jamaica's National Security
Minister, Peter Phillips, was on that very day last
week making a passionate plea for unity in the
interest of Jamaica:
"If there is one thing that should not divide
Jamaica now, because you can look over the
precipice and see the prospect," said Phillips, "let
us not divide on the question of resisting criminality
and crime and violence...This runaway lawlessness
must be brought under immediate control..."
Such a plea is quite applicable to Guyana
and the more often made by key stakeholders of
this nation, all the more better.

GECOM burdened with 'free

for all'system with no deposits

GUYANA is in the process of
advancing arrangements for.
its fourth presidential and
parliamentary elections next
year since the restoration of
electoral democracy 13 years
ago last month.
Expected not before
July, possibly August, there are
already indications of yet
another electoral jamboree of
peripheral parties with their
dreams of making an impact on
future governance.
To achieve that
objective, they
must sufficiently erode the
mass support base of the two
traditional major contenders for,
state power the governing
People's Progressive Party
(PPP) and the People's
National Congress (PNC).
Small parties,
pretending to offer
"alternatives", have miserably
failed to do so in the past, even
with expedient formations of
"alliances" and/or "mergers" for
the March 2001 elections.
Since then, they have
been manoeuvring to sink their
differences and establish a
combined 'third force' of all
parties opposed to both the
PPP and PNC, as they glibly
talk of 'coalition' or 'shared
- Lastnmonth, the
Guyana Elections Commission
(GECOM) intensified
arrangements to have in place a
new, verifiable electoral register
for the coming 2006 elections.
At the same time,
Guyanese were observing fresh
political antics by a
conglomeration of small parties
and ambitious political
elements offering, not just one
but two new 'forces' as
alternatives to the PPP and

some 30 peripheral parties
masquerading as having the
capacity to put a dent on the
support base of the PPP and
PNC. By Nomination Day, they
had dwindled to about 11.
The jamboree of
'election' parties poses a costly
and burdensome experience for
GECOM and should be
seriously reviewed by the seven-
member bipartisan Commission.

GECOM itself, for all
its commendable efforts to
ensure free and fair
elections, continues to be
perceived as lacking the
credibility and independence of
counterpart bodies in countries
like Barbados, Jamaica and
Trinidad and Tobago, where
'independent' personnel and not
representatives of parties
A combination of
factors explains the unique
Guyanese experience of the
mushrooming of parties for
elections that have no
obligations, as required in other
CARICOM states.
The key factor resides
in the electoral system itself -

(PR) that entices every 'Dick',
'Harry' or 'Persaud' to offer any
broomstick as a party to
GECOM for elections.
They are then entitled
to all relevant materials and
information pertaining to the
conduct of elections, for which
they are not required to lodge
even the most token of deposits.
Such a list of candidates
could be headed by an 'overnight'
political 'leader' whose inflated
ego drives him/her in the contest
for political power, but often
proving more a burdensome
nuisance for GECOM and voters
who have to contend with logs of
lists of candidates and symbols
of parties.
For election 2006, there
is already an array of such
politicians and parties, with
developments last month
producing, first a hastily
launched 'Guyana Third, Force'
(GTF) followed after some
amusing squabbles by an
'Alliance for Change' (AFC).
Together, they constitute
some strange political bedfellows,
among them unsuccessful
candidates; defectors from the
PPP and PNC and others. The

attention from the 'anancy'
politician Moses Nagamootoo
who has been conspicuously
He is undoubtedly
weighing his own options as a
disaffected but still, officially,
a member of the PPP, the party
which, according to a recent
opinion poll, remains the front-
runner for elections 2006.
Those who worry
over morality in public affairs
may have questions of their
own about the political couple
of Ramnattan and Trotman of
the AFC.
Why, for
instance, should
they engage in '

arguments to hold

Guyana is the only
CARICOM state of the
Anglophone Caribbean with the
electoral system of proportional

first-past-the-pole model in the
rest of the Community. Suriname

electoral systems.
Originally introduced,
under British rule in 1964, to
frustrate the PPP from
successive electoral victories, the

amid dire warnings that a series of high-level meet-

a deal together in time for the year-end Ministe-

given the on-going stalemate
in agriculture, and that the fate

Pressure is
mounting on the EU to show
more flexibility in farm trade
talks, at a time when the Eu-
ropean Commission is facing
stiff opposition from some of
its member states to make any

part, the Commission has
continued to call for a shift in

vices and non-agricultural

in Hong Kong. He cautioned

that for a successful Ministe-
rial, all members must feel
that some important aspect of
their negotiating agenda
has been meaningfully
addressed. "The pri-
ority issues for small,
vulnerable countries in
the Caribbean are: a)
small economies; b)

those under preferential
arrangements; and, d)
support in the form of
development financing,

liberalisation under the.
WTO." Ambassador
Bernal noted.
Secretary Tsang's
visit provided an oppor-
tunity to exchange
views on the WTO's
December Hong Kong
Ministerial, and dis-
cuss the status of WTO Doha
Round talks, ahead of this de-
cisive Ministerial. He visited
the Region at a time of mount-
ing uncertainty amongst the

CARICOM seeks management

'overhaul' of WI cricket


Caribbean Community has
conveyed its anxiety for a
"thorough overhaul" in the
governance of West Indies
cricket as soon as possible.
This message to both the
West Indies Cricket Board
(WICB) and the West Indies
Players Association (WIPA)
surfaced during a meeting on
Friday in Castries between a trio
of Community government
representativess and officials of
the Board and Association.
The meeting, hosted
and chaired by CARICOM's
current chairman, Prime Minister
Kenny Anthony of St. Lucia,
was in accordance with a
mandate given at last July's
annual Summit of Heads of
Government that included an
invitation for the WICB to
become an "associate
institution" of the 15-member
Participating in the
meeting with Anthony were:
Prime Minister Keith Mitchell
of Grenada, head of
CARICOM's Prime Ministerial
.Sub-committee on Cricket,
and Barbados' Minister of

Education, Sports and Youth
Affairs, Reginald Farley, who
represented Prime Minister
Owen Arthur.
The WICB was
represented by President Ken
Gordon and WIPA by its Chief
Executive Officer, Dinanath
Ramnarine. An official
statement on the meeting is to
be released tomorrow.
Yesterday, Prime
Minister Anthony, speaking
in a telephone interview from
Castries, told the Sunday
Chronicle that discussions

agreed mechanism, prior to the
hosting of Cricket World Cup
2007, for the "overhaul of the
governance" of West Indies
cricket and its
operationalisation after the

game's historic event next year.
It was agreed at the
meeting that preparations for
the creation and implementation
of such a mechanism should not
"compromise" current
efforts by the WICB and WIPA
to resolve outstanding
differences in the interest of
West Indies cricket.
Prime Minister
Anthony said that it was an

In the case of
CARICOM countries, the
matter boils down to a simple
issue: the trade rules that apply,
to large countries developed
or developing should not be
applied to small ones whose
economies are already relatively
open and whose volume of
exports in world terms is minute.
They should not be subjected to
'equal' treatment when they are
pitted against 'unequals' much
larger and far better resource.

THE Guyana Community

Programme on Thursday
4W launched its five-year strate-
_W gic plan which focuses on in-
tegrating persons with dis-
abilities into political, social,
economic and cultural as-
** .pects of Guyanese society
through empowerment.
a I The plan was launched un-
d der the theme 'Creating together
an enabling environment' at the
providers Ocean View International Hotel,
Liliendaal, East Coast Demerara.
It is hoped that over the next five
O years, persons with disabilities
e will be able to make meaningful
contribution to society "through
improved access to-education
among other changes..
0 The organisation's objec-
i.?, tives are raising awareness and
advocacy by positively influ-
encing the perceptions, attitudes
n ^ and actions of government and
the public, rallying communities
S to create an environment where
persons with disabilities can
Iw realise their full potential and
ensuring that children and adults
with disabilities have access to

is hoping to attract and train an
adequate team of committed
volunteers from across the coun-
try to carry out the work.
Permanent Secretary of the
Ministry of Health Ms. Sonia
Roopnauth, in her address said
that-the organisation's members
need to capitalise on their
strengths and tackle their weak-
nesses, as they seek to success-
lu ll implement the strategic
She added that the forma-
tion: of the strategic plan is just
the'beginning, and the real suc-
cess will come with its imple-

into society

Roopnauth also urged that
they strengthen their interaction
with other entities such as the
private sector.
"It is critical to get them
involved in the initial stages, so
when you approach them for
funding later on, they would al-
ready be involved," she ad-
The Permanent Secretary
also suggested that when per-
sons are trained as volunteers
they give back their services to
the organisation.
1 "It makes niio sense for you
to say that you have trained 20

persons and they are not serv-

According to Roopnauth,
Government and the Health
Ministry in particular, have
been offering support to the
CBR programmes for years
through their Rehabilitation Ser-
vices Programme, Open Door
Centre, National Mental Health
Programme and the Special Eye

De Castro came up with the idea during a meeting in 1996 to
discuss fundraising for the school.
The project will continue to be used to generate more funds
by conducting campaigns to encourage the purchase of bncks.

Toronto. New York and Barbados are expected for the event
which will also be attended by local alumni and officials from
the Ministry of Education.

Where have all the

female condoms


By Shirley Thomas
THE steep increase in the price of female
condoms locally, if not checked, can cripple
the campaign for popularising and promot-
ing the device as a reliable mechanism for
preventing the spread of HIV the virus that
causes AIDS and other sexually transmit-

ted infections (STIs).
The retail price for a single
female disposable condom, has
now reached a whopping $995
- more than twice, and almost
thrice the initial price when first
introduced here about two and a
half years ago. In 2003, condoms


were sold locally for about $345.
Checks at various pharma-
cies around the city revealed that
even though the prevailing price
should be about $445, those
pharmacies asking that price are
out of supplies. This has prob-.


ably influenced the high price of
the article in places where it is
But a Managing Director of
a pharmacy which has several
branches around the country, an-
nounced that his company now
sells female condoms for $995,
and that there continues to be a
The drastic increase has
prompted fears that this can
prove a major setback in the quest
to get women to use the device,
which is said to be safer than the
male condoms. This is because
the price factor will now virtu-
ally push female condoms out of
the reach of the-aveirage lw -in-
come or unemployed women, a
great many of whom are very
vulnerable to contracting HIV.
HIV/AIDS educators and
community health workers con-
tend that this development is
bound to deal a devastating blow
on all efforts and energies ex-
pended so far on getting women
to use the device, still relatively
new in Guyana. They are call-
ing for some mechanism to be
speedily put in place to moni-

tor the price of the essential
It was the consensus among
women interviewed that, once
they get used to it, then there's
no longer a problem, adding that
they are comfortable on learning
that female condoms are stron-
ger and safer than those designed
for males.
Many women interviewed
have admitted that, with educa-
tion campaigns, they have now
overcome the initial psychologi-
cal hurdles associated with use
of the condom which they pre-
viously perceived as bulky and
repugnant. Appreciable numbers
have since begun to use them,
and others say they are consid-
ering doing likewise.
But even as women continue
to lament the spiralling cost ver-
sus affordability, and its negative
effects on attempts to prevent
the spread of sexually transmit-
ted diseases, there is still report-
edly, a growing demand for the
commodity though not from
within female circles.
Investigations into this sce-
nario revealed that while women

are dithering there is a new and
ever-growing rival clientele liter-
ally 'grabbing up' the commod-
ity for personal use. Informed
sources say that many homo-
sexuals, happy about the novel
invention, and very comfortable
with its use and the level of pro-
tection it offers, are turning away
from male condoms in preference
to female condoms which are not
found to be constricting.
A leading HIV/AIDS educa-
tor has confirmed that following
much controversy over the effi-
cacy of the male condom for
preventing the spread of HIV,
there is a great demand for them
among homosexuals, and outside
of Guyana, the commodity is lit-
erally selling like hot-cakes.
Meanwhile, experts contend
that even though the female con-
dom is more expensive than the
male condom sold on average
for $200 per packet of three -
there is evidence that it may be
cost-effective and even cost-sav-
ing .in reproductive health
programmes, particularly in tar-
get groups that practise high-risk

JHPIEGO, an affiliate of the
John Hopkins University, on the
use of female condoms states:
Some of the benefits of the
female condom, over the male
condom include:
It is made of polyurethane,
while most male condoms are
made of latex. Polyurethane is
stronger than latex and causes no
allergic reactions. Unlike latex,
polyurethane may be used with
both oil-based and water-based
lubricants and is not susceptible
to deterioration from tempera-
ture or humidity.
It is not tight or constrict-
It can be inserted prior to
intercourse and does not require
immediate withdrawal after
ejaculation, so it will not inter-
rupt sexual spontaneity.
The female condom offers
more extensive barrier protec-
tion, covering both the woman's
internal and external genitalia and
the base of the penis, as required
for persons with genital warts.
Unlike the male condom,
female condoms can be reused if
washed, rinsed and air dried af-

no serious side effects, with less
than 10 per cent of users report-

If condoms are used correctly
and consistently with every act of
sex, they are very effective, provid-
ing 98 per cent protection against
HIV and STIs and 95-97 per cent

This breakthrough can be cred-

Acceptance of the female con-
dom among women in Guyana
was, to a large extent, influenced
by the vision and benevolence of
a popular Guyanese-born, United
States-based Caribbean personal-
ity, Ms. Dawne Fraser Stewart.
Fraser Stewart is a founder-mem-
ber of Caribbean People Interna-
tional Collective (CPIC) and Di-
rector of Monique's Caring
Hands (an HIV/AIDS NGO) in
The effervescent, 'tell it like
it is' personality, who seems to
have impacted a good many of
the up-and-running HIV/AIDS
NGOs in Guyana, first intro-
duced the female condom here in
2003. Initially it was viewed
with some reservation, but she
was able to make considerable
inroads, having launched a spir-
ited campaign on teaching
Guyanese women about the role
of condoms.
That hurdle was cleared dur-
ing CPIC's three-phase SISTA

'Sisters Informing Sisters on
Topics about AIDS' training
programme in Georgetown.
Apart from theory, practical
demonstrations in the use of both
male and female condoms formed
part of the programme.
The SISTA Training
Projects, introduced then, and
being taken around the country
by more than 30 facilitators from
local AIDS Service Organisations
and NGOs focused on
Behavioural Self Management
and negotiation of safer sex prac-
tice by Caribbean women. Em-
phasis was placed on the key
concepts of Assertiveness Train-
ing Skills and provided women
-with the skills to negotiate safe
sex practices, and on how to use
condoms properly.
In the face of the prevailing
price of the commodity, hoards
of women say they can ill afford
to buy a condom costing close to
$1,000 and have stopped buying
Against this background,
we may now be inclined to ask:
"Where have all the female
condoms gone?"

Agricultural Biotechnology -
Part 2 and Some Risks Asso-

LAST week we noted the ma-
jor driving force for agricul-
tural biotechnology was food
security in a world with in-
creasing population, poverty,
dwindling natural resources
and the pressing need for
sustainable development,
among others. We also iden-
tified modern biotechnology
as the third greatest techno-
logical revolution in human
history and provided a very
brief history of genetic engi-
neering as well as selective
insights into some of the ben-
efits being derived from agri-
cultural biotechnology.
Today, we preface our dis-
cussion with further insights
into the history behind genetic
engineering, specifically, the ad-
aptation of the technology de-
veloped by Dr. Herbert Boyer
and Dr. Stanley Cohen for ge-
netic engineering of plants. We
will give further examples of the
range of agricultural biotechnol-
ogy products now commer-
cially available and related ben-
efits and highlight some of the
basic risks associated and hence
the need for biosafety.
Agrobacterium and the
dawn of Plant Genetic Engineer-

As noted in our last column,
the year 1973, is now widely ac-
cepted as the dawn of genetic en-
gineering in general. However,
the adaptation of the technology
for the genetic engineering of
plants, the beginning of plant ge-
netic engineering, is now consid-
ered to be 1974, just one year af-
ter the breakthrough by Boyer
and Cohen. It was the year in
which two groups of research
teams lead by Professors Zaenen
and Larebeke discovered that
crown gall disease in plants was
due to the tumourr inducing prin-
ciple" ( analogous to what we
might term the equivalent of "can-
cer inducing princliple" since gall
formation in plants follows some-
what similar trend with uncon-
trolled proliferation of a mass of
plant cells).
The tumour -inducing prin-
ciple, abbreviated Ti, is respon-
sible for the production of tu-
mour causing chemicals called
opines. According to one source
in the Journal of Bacteriology
published in 2001, the notable
opines (chemicals which induce
tumours (galls) in plants) are
octopine, nopaline, agropine,
and succinamopine. These tu-
mour-triggering chemicals are all
produced by a common soil bac-
terium called Agrobacteriumn
tuimefasciens. This bacterium is
now commonly referred to as a
"natural genetic engineer."

The discovery of the
mechanism by which
Agrobacterium causes tunour
development in plants paved
the way for major advances in
plant genetic engineering.
While we are somewhat reluc-
tant to overburden readers
with scientific details in this
column, we wish to introduce
the basics of how all this

In very .simple terms,
Agrobacteriim, like all other
bacteria, has hereditary mate-
rial, called chromosomes,
within its cells. These heredi-
tary materials are responsible
for transmitting inherited
traits from "mother bacterial
cells" to "daughter bacterial
cells." As noted in an earlier
column in this series, the in-
heritable traits are carried on
the chromosomes, which are
made up of a relatively large
chemical compound called
DNA (full name: deoxyribo-
nucleic acid). It is segments of
this molecule called DNA that
constitute genes the specific
inheritable trait carriers in the
cell. For example, there is a
gene for tall trees and another
for large fruits and so on.
Bacteria, most unusually,
have normal chromosomes like
all other organisms as well as
small circles of what we may
call "other DNA" outside the
normal bacterial chromosome.
It is this "other DNA" called
"extrachromosomal DNA"
that makes these bacteria spe-
cial The 'other DNA" is ca-
pable ot di hiding and repro-
ducing b\ itelfi. This "other
DNA' iih its "independent
self-reproducing" properties is
called a plasmid. The plasmid
is no%% an important genetic
engineering iool for the genetic
modification of crop plants,
among other methods. Differ-
ent plasrmd'- use different tu-
mour-inducinr chemicals to
achie\ e their gall formation ef-
lectl Thi< is achieved by spe-

cific tumour-inducing plasmids
(Ti plasmids)
The development of the Ti
plasmids to carry specific traits
which can be transferred into
the hereditary make-up of other
organisms required the develop-
ment of techniques by which
small quantities of DNA can be
reproduced or made to copy it-
self several times; hence the
polymerase chain reaction
(PCR) for which Professor
Kary Mullis was awarded
Nobel Prize. The PCR tech-
nique was developed in 1983.
With it the possibilities of other
applications such as DNA fin-
ger-printing and the use in pa-
ternity tests and crime solving
topics which we shall cover
later on in this series.

FINE batting from opener
Shaun Baksh and a four-
wicket haul from medium
pacer Marion Latif spurred
Thcher Park to an emphatic
81-run victory over Kildonan
in the Berbice Zone final of
the 2005 National Bank of In-
dustry and Commerce (NBIC)
National Under-15 cricket
competition played yesterday
at the Albion Community
Centre ground.
The win ensured Tucber
Park won their third Berbice
Under-15 title and the right to
play Demerara runners-up Wales
in the second National semifinal
tomorrow at the Blairmont
Community Centre ground.
Baksh hit a fluent 38 which
was decorated with. four fours that
laid the foundation for Tucber
Park's challenging total of 203 all
out, having batted 49.1 of their al-
lotted 50 overs after they were in-
vited to take first strike on a good
batting track and a lightning fast
Latif, a nephew of former
Berbice senior inter-county all-
rounder Luke Latif, then de-
stroyed the Kildonan middle
and lower order with figures of
four for six from 2.5 overs as the
Central Corentyne team, ap-
pearing in their first ever final
at this level, were dismissed for
122 in 39.5 overs.

little support from his team

Chisholm -picked up the

four while Adriel Park, duck,
was trapped .in front of his
stumps by De Jesus.
Ramcharitar, a player with
first division exposure, played
some attractive shots on both
sides of the wicket and together
with Mankarran rotated the
strike well, aided by some
sloppy fielding from the Tucber
However, once the pair
separated when Mankarran was
run-out looking for a sharp
single, only to see his partner
not responding with the score
on 83 in the 29th over, it was
then a steady procession to and

Germans donate coaching gear to local football

THE Foreign Office of the
Federal Republic of Ger-
many, in collaboration with
that country's National
Olympic Committee, yester-
day, donated equipment and
gear to the Guyana Football
Federation (GFF) for its
coaching programmes.
In a simple ceremony at the
GFF office in Campbellville
professional Gunter Zittel, who
has been in Guyana for almost
a month, handed over the gifts.
He came here through the Ger-
man government and conducted
a series of training programmes
with local football coaches.
GFF general secretary
George Rutherford told
Chronicle Sport that the tlona-
tion was timely and that it
would be used for the training
of local coaches, who in turn
would use them on players.
He said that Zittel's stint in

Guyana has been progressive so
far, with other programmes ear-
marked for other communities.
From today to next Thurs-
day, Zittel will be in Linden to
conduct a coaching programme
for coaches from the mining
town, Berbice, Ituni and
After that programme, the
foreign coach will conduct a
training course in Georgetown,
November 14-i8. The theoreti-
cal aspect wiii be done at the
GNS training : )om. while the
practical asp..c_' will be done ei-
ther at the same ground or at
Queen's College ground.
Rutherford said this course
targeted teachers interested in
teaching the game in schools or
in clubs.
Two other programmes will
be conducted by the coach be-
fore he leaves Guyana in the
first week of December. He will

conduct a camp for the national
Under-15 footballers who are
expected to represent Guyana in
the Caribbean Football Union
Under- 16 tournament in August
of next year in Trinidad and To-
bago, while he will take the
cream of the crop from his
coaching programmes through
an advanced programme.
According to a press release
from the GFF, both Rutherford
and GFF president Colin Klass
lauded the intervention of
CONCACAF president 'Jack'
Austin Warner, since this re-
sulted in Zittel making the trip
Both executives also
praised the German Gov-
ernment and people and
the Sporting Associations
that collaborated to make
the German coach avail-
able to the Guyanese foot-
ball fraternity.

Dowlin hits stubborn

stroke-filled ton

... Demerara kept alive

By Ravendra Madholall

A STUBBORN unbeaten cen-
tury from National middle-
order batsman Travis Dowlin
kept the home team alive
against defending champions
Berbice after Demerara had
an early scare in the second
innings at 96 for five.
Demerara closed the
penultimate day on 278 for nine
leading by 181 to set up an in-
triguing final day at the famous
Georgetown Cricket Club
(GCC) ground, Bourda, and it
is the deciding round of the
2005 senior four-day Carib Beer
Inter-county cricket competi-
Dowlin played positively
to hit a stroked-filled 100, even
though wickets at the other end
were falling in quick succession
as former West Indies leg-spin-
ner Mahendra Nagamootoo
spun web around the Demerara
batsmen on a day blessed with
good weather for cricket to fin-
ish the with excellent figures
The right-handed Demerara
Cricket Club (DCC) batsman,
Dowlin, arrived at the crease
when his team were on the
block at 58 for three trying to
wipe out the visitors' first in-
nings lead of 97 but the stocky
batsman exercised patience and
determination hat saw him to
his century.
The visitors resumed
from their comfortable over-
night score-of 343 for eight
and were quickly skittled out
for 362 with fast bowler Reon
Griffith snapping up Maxwell
Georgeson and Imran
Jafarally who were both not
out overnight The little left-
handed Georgeson made 26
and Jafarally contributed 18
while Jeremy Gordon was
left not out on zero.
Griffith grabbed four for
107 from 28 overs while skip-

per Reon King, who was very
accurate on the second day,

spinner Neil McGarrell' had only
a solitary wicket to wrap up the
title-holders' innings, 25 min-
utes into the day's play.
Demerara benefited from an
opening stand of 38 before
Krishna Arjune was bowled by
West Indies Under-19 selectee
Jeremy Gordon for 11 and they
also quickly loss number three

Ramdass, who looked very
composed in his fighting 28 with
three delightful fours, and first
innings centurion Steven Jacobs
who made 23, fell to Gordon
and Nagamootoo respectively,
to pile up the pressure on their
team. Dowlin began'his innings,
meticulously rotating the strike
and manoeuvring the vacant
gaps with precision.
The right-handed

single to cover. He had al-

International Goodwill

table tennis...

Guyana 'B'

emerge Men's

team champion

By Faizool Deo
OVERSEAS-based Paul
David's team now known as
Guyana 'B' won the Men's
Team competition of the In-
ternational Goodwill table
tennis at the Cliff Anderson
Sports Hall.
Still basking from their vic-
tory over the Trinidad & Tobago
'A' team on the opening night,
they were unstoppable when the
competition continued yester-
day at the same venue, winning
against the 'A' side 3-0, and the
'C' team 3-1. They were ex-
pected to play their last game
against the 'D' side, last night.
The second place fight was be-
tween the 'A' side and their
Trinidadian counterpart who were
also expected to clash last night.
Unfortunately the competition
has been restricted only to two coun-
tries since Barbados atthe ninth hour
opted out. Also last night, the
Doubles were expectedto begin, with
the Singles set to start today.
Secretary of the Guyana
Table Tennis:, Association
(GTTA) Godfrey Munroe said
he was very disappointed with
the Barbadian side for the late
decision to cancel.
He disclosed he spoke to Bar-
badian player Trevor Farley on Fri-
day who indicated that due to fi-
nances a smaller team would travel
to the competition on Friday night.
Guyana's 'B' team won
against the 'A' team with Idi
Lewis defeating Andrew Daly
11-6, 11-3 and 11-8.
David followed his teammate
and sent Paul Meusa crashing three
sets to nil 11-7, 11-8 and 11-6. The
other-game went-to-four sets;-with
Christopher Franklin defeating
MichaelWaithe 11-5,11-8,8-11 and
Their other victory was
against the 'C' side and Idi Lewis
down one set to nil, came back
three straight sets to record a vic-

ton' over Edihno Lewis 5-11,
11-5, 11-5 and 11-3.
Game three was the only one
that the 'B', side lost, with
Hewley Griffith going down to
Tristan Gaime 12-10, 8-11, 11-
6,5-11 and 6-11.
This forced David to play
again, but he did so successfully
against Edihno Lewis winning
11-6, 11-7 and 11-7 to take his


team to victory.
The Trinidad 'A' team's vic-
tories yesterday were against
Guyana's 'C' team and the 'D'
side, Curtis Humphreys de-
feated Zach Gonsalves 11-4, 11-
7, 11-3, Aaron Edwards after a
tough fight from Edihno Lewis
recorded a 3-2 victory 11-4, 9-
11, 11-7, 6-11 and 11-9. Arnold
Felix then sealed the victory de-
feating Tristan Gaime 11-8, 7-
11, 11-9, 10-12 and 11-9.
The other game against
Guyana's 'D' side was also a
three-games-to-nil victory,Aaron
Edwards defeated Teddy
Matthews 11-6, 11-8 and 11-8,
while Arnold Felix got past
Donald Duff 11-8,11-6 and 11-7

Umpires adopt

new constitution
... Essequibo, Berbice have
greater representation
By Isaiah Chappelle
THE Guyana Umpires Council (GLIC) yesterday adopted
a new constitution during a Special General Meeting at
the GNNL Sports Club. giving greater representation to
Essequibo and Berbice.
GUC secretary Clyde Duncan told Chronicle Sport that
the delegates accepted the new document that replaced the pre-
vious one that dated back to the 1980s and was crafted by the
late Justice Rudolph Harper
"It is now operative." he said.
Chairman of the Constitution Review Commiunee, Grantley
Culbard, said the work started last sear and Justice Harper
was actually working on it up to his passing away. when
Culbard took over the chairmanship.
"We have been try mng to bring more quality as it relates to
Berbice and Essequibo, to give them more say."
The two counties will now have more representation at
general meeting, entitling them to ten delegates, with additional
delegates if they have qualified and partially qualified umpires.
Authority is now vested to form a Demerara Cricket Um-
pires Association, where there is none at present, bringing to-
gether the East Coast and West Demerara, and Linden under
one umbrella, patterned after the structure of the Guyana
Cricket Board, whereby each county has one governing body.
Bartica will become part of the Essequibo body.
Then the Berbice Cricket Umpires Association, Essequibo
Cricket Umpires Association and Demerara Cricket Umpires
Association will form the Guyana Cricket Umpires Council
Culbard stressed that the existing associations in the coun-
ties would not be dissolved but would become sub-associa-
"They will not die." he reassured.

If you know the

definitions of what beauty is
and what we should look
We have been struggling
to fit into the unrealistic and
somewhat unhealthy images
simply because they go
against the grain of who we
are. What we fail to realise as
people of colour is that each
of us has been richly be-
stowed with natural beauty.
Not a week goes by
when I do not hear about
women especially, in a des-
perate bid to be accepted, re-

it be that this is the only way
you feel accepted as a per-

it be that you are yet to ac-

What I am talking about is
the major and drastic

are embarking upon nowa-

What happened
to the real me?
The gradual disappear-
ance of who we really are can
be traced back to our
childhood. The playground
was often the place where,
many were taunted for being
too big or small, ostracised
for wearing an unknown
brand of trainers or jeered at
for being too dark/light, hav-
ing big lips/nose or of hav-
ing a country accent!
To protect our
selves from
further rejec
tion and to be

accepted, we look for ways
to fit in rather than accept
the way we are. But what we
fail to realise is the fact that
the ideals of beauty (as de-
fined by the fashion x orld.
media and society at large)
keep changing. If you keep
dancing to their tunes,
sooner or later, your own
unique expression of beauty
will eventually disap-

why resort to throwing up
your meals, using laxatives,
starvation, plastic surgery
and other drastic measures
to fit into a mould you were
never designed to fill?
Bringing it closer to home,
our nearest and dearest have
not helped in this matter neither.
Imagine the seeds sown into the
heart of a young girl whose fam-
ily tease her about her weight
(big or small) the size of her lips,
her hair texture and so on. The
damaging effects are endless. If
you have suffered from
thoughtless remarks about your

weight, cut our hair like
Halle Berry, lighten/.

the list goes on. Hav-

Is fP ~ ~

By Clifford Stanley
CLOSE to the bottom of the
Berbice River, sixty feet from
the surface, it is pitch black,
eerily silent and the water
pressure is so heavy that it
can squeeze blood from your
head out through your nose.
It is cold, a shivery, numb-
ing kind of cold. Then as you
land gently onto the invisible
swirling mud at the bottom, you
experience "things that go bump
in the dark". Things that you
know are there, possibly curi-
ous things, possibly hostile
things, things that you would
rather not see.
At seventy feet below sur-
face, welcome to the 'Office' of
Sam Simon, veteran diver for an-
tique bottles.
Sam is a lifelong resident on
the banks of the Berbice River.
He is one of close to a hundred'
residents who make a living by
retrieving antique bottles from
the bottom of the river.
These bottles, many
beautiful exotic looking, are
from 17th, 18th 19th and.early
part of the 20th century, thrown
overboard by the Dutch, their
slaves, probably even the Brit-
ish who traversed the Berbice
River and lived and farmed on
its banks in those days.
Sam has been scooping
them up from the Berbice River
bed with his bare hands for the
past 30 years and says there
seems to be an inexhaustible
supply of them down there.
And not only on the

Berbice bed, but at the bottom
of the Canje Creek as well.
In an interview with the
Sunday Chronicle, Sam dis-
played some of his treasures
from the river bed but was quick
to stress that his office area is
definitely not a place for nerds.
At 12 feet below surface,
the pressure begins to close in

underwater or at high altitudes.
The rapid change of pres-
sure against the body causes
bubbles of air to be liberated in
the blood vessels bubbles

ings on the entire skin surface,

ciating pain, deformity and

sometimes triggering heavy nose
bleeds in even the most experi-
enced divers.
And if you go down too
fast or if something scares you
at the bottom and you come up
to quickly, you can experience
the excruciatingly painful and, at
times fatal consequences of the
phenomenon commonly known
as the 'Bends'.
This is a disease which oc-
curs when there is. rapid com-

Sam is not superstitious,
but he knows of many antique
bottle divers whose kit include
bottles of white rum.
"The guys pour the white
rum onto the river surface, be-
fore they go into the water. This
is to appease the spirits in the
river. The Berbice River in its
upper reaches is as dark as it is
deep, and who knows what su-
pernatural forces may be lurk-

their peace of mind."
Many would not
open antique Dutch bottles
which are capped though these
findings are rare, for similar rea-
sons. Samn also knows of many
who could dive with water
proof torch-lights but who
would bluntly refuse to do so.
He is one.
Evil spirits apart, there are
frightfully large unsealed fishes
at that depth, ugly-looking fish
such as Blinkers and Manaris
which can grow up to 12 feet
in length.
The brown "monsters" are
attracted by the light and will
glide up to about two feet from
your face or bump into you and
then remain there unmoving, re-
fusing to go away, just waving
their tails and staring at you
with their big goggle like eyes.
Very unnerving.
Sam said he sought antique
bottles once with lights and had
such a frightening experience
that he refused to use a torch-

light ever again.
"I know there are things at
the bottom there. Probably close
to me or circling around me, but
I prefer to work in the dark. I
prefer not to see," he said.
Sam says that the antique
bottles trade is reasonably alive
and well.
He and many others, sell to
middlemen who have overseas
He was, however, notice-
ably reticent when asked to
comment on how lucrative the
trade is.
Indirectly shedding some
light on this aspect, he said:
"When I started diving in the
seventies, I used to work with
a Government agency in the
River for $98 a fortnight. At

that time, one antique bottle re-
trieved from the riverbed in a
little over two minutes of work
would fetch a price of $500. So
you can imagine what my pri-
orities were."
He recalled that in those
days he would make a long
slender pole which he would
stick firmly onto the River
bed. Then he would take a
deep breath and then shimmy
down the pole as quickly as
he could, scramble around at
the bottom of the River for
about ninety seconds, make
contact with a bottle or even
two, stuff them into his shirt
and then shimmy up the pole
back to the surface before his

sic, the creative
example of
Miles Davis shows us the re-
wards of dedication, skill and
productivity. His is,the story
of a man and his close, spe-
cific relationship with one
musical instrument which
gave only life and hope to all
his listeners. The world, so-
cieties, and nations always
need basically two types of
workers: those who are
needed in large numbers to
make societies function in
their basic daily life, and
those who master specific
skills and arts to bring inter-
est and enjoyment to the life
of the masses.
Such specific individuals
would be musicians, fine artists,
cartoon and comic book artists,
freelance journalists and pho-
tographers, designers, architects,
tailors, carpenters, dancers,
film-makers, creative writers.
The first category of 'ev-

eryday' workers share the same
functions in their jobs and can
expect a fixed paycheck weekly,
or monthly. But the second spe-
cific workers distinguish them-
selves by a difference of style
and method, and do not expect
to always earn the same
amount. Nevertheless, they may
satisfy their lives by the love
and dedication given to their
work, if they are genuine pro-
Miles Davis became one
of the 20th century's great-
est trumpeters and jazz com-
posers because of his distinct
trumpet sound and style of
arranging instrumental jazz.
Distinction is a quality all
good artists heed. Distinction
brings interest and pleasure
in living. The great jazz trum-
peters though living in the
same era and playing in the
same clubs, each had their
own musical style: Louis
Armstrong; Roy Eldridge,
Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford
Brown, Chet Baker, Freddie
Hubbard, Maynard
Ferguson, Lester Bowie,
Chuck Mangione, Al Hirt,

among others, succeeded in
their careers because of their
distinct style of playing the
same instrument, the trum-

pet. The artist who has mas-

find work when travelling; all
that is needed is their creative

tools or product with them.
We look at the life and work
of Miles Davis and see the re-
wards of serious interests which
led to his fame and simple suc-
cess. Miles first found notice as
a jazz trumpeter in Charlie
Parker's quintet in the late
1940s. But Miles, like many
other great jazz artists, would
succumb to the glamour of
Parker's drug addiction, when in
fact Parker's heroin habit
stemmed from the need to con-
stantly curb pain inherited from
a serious car accident as a teen-
ager. Luckily, Parker's addiction
led to his unreliable behaviour,
which infuriated Davis, who
idolised Parker for his great mu-

But Davis had a wonder-
ful amusing way of finding
new friendships with other
jazz musicians, and this led
to his making distinctive new
jazz with many of them. But
before Davis could even at-
tempt to achieve his creative
best, he knew he had to drop
his own serious heroin addic-
tion. Luckily, his parents,
who were educated, well-off
medical doctors, did not turn
him away when he returned
home, but took him in, fed
him properly, and locked him
away from callers until he
sweated out his addiction in
'cold turkey' fashion.
Davis' first album to
launch his fame was 'The
birth of the cool', jazz ses-
sions he played with out-
standing white jazz artists,
Gerry Mulligan, Gil Evans,
and Johnny Carisi. Their new
jazz created a social mood
and intelligent lifestyle which
came to be known as 'the
cool', especially among beat-
niks and Bohemians, and
other creative and profes-
sional people. In his essay
'Bop', the distinguished black
poet/critic Leroi Jones (or
Amiri Baraka, later), ex-
plained the meaning of the
'cool' precisely: "The term
'cool' in its original context
meant a specific reaction to
the world, a specific relation-
ship to one's environment. It
defined an attitude that actu-
ally existed. To be cool was,
in the most accessible mean-
ing, to be calm, even unim-

pressed by what horror the
world might daily propose.
In a world that is basically ir-
rational, the most legitimate
relationship to it is non-par-
But such 'non-partici-
pation did not mean doing
nothing constructive and
intelligent and kind. On
the contrary, it meant a
keen interest in a 'cool'
musical style which en-
couraged civilised social
moods and habits with its
light floating sounds and
tones, very focused and
rooted in earlier 1940s
Swing Jazz played by pia-
nist Claude Thornhill,
Lester Young, Count Basie,
and Charlie Parker. Davis'
open-minded non-racial
pursuit of innovative qual-
ity allowed Gil Evans, one
of the greatest Canadian
jazz musicians, and an im-
migrant to the US, to ar-
range and compose music
for the album that would
make Miles Davis a rave
across Europe and an inter-
national interest.
In 'Miles Ahead', 1957,
Evans created a 12-piece
orchestral setting behind
Davis' lone trumpet and
flugelhorn solos. The re-
sult revealed clearly, mini-
mally, the deep evocative
moods of Miles' trumpet
playing. Between 1949 and
1965, six Miles Davis mas-

'Toronto and Canada have nurtured
me the same way Barbados has made
me and fashioned me. I'm a Canadian
with strong Barbadian connections'

By Norman Faria
IT HAD been a while since I
last met with one of Canada's
most well-known and re-
spected writers, Barbados-
born Austin 'Tom' Clarke.
Must be at least 15 years.
Now, on a recent visit to
Toronto, as we gaff and have
some tea at his townhouse on
Shuter Street, right away I no-
tice three changes: One, he has
given up smoking. Two: He has
traded in his clackety
Remwriter typewriter for a
laptop computer. And three: He
has adopted a mini dreadlocked
hair style.
Aside from a few other
things, like his moving a couple
streets southwards in the same
Cabbagetown district off Yonge
Stre. Austin hasn't changed
that much.
He's still writing. 'Works in
progress' include a novel started
in 1986 and set in Cabbagetown.
Then there are his memoirs.
They were due to be published
in September, but still need
some work.
Taking a copy of his 2003
novel 'The Polished Hoe' and
writing a dedication for me in his
introverted, almost monastery-
like script, Austin says Canada
is now his home. He rarely trav-
els. He has visited Barbados
four times over the last decade,
including to give a Canadian
High Commissioner sponsored
launching of 'Polished Hoe' and
to receive an Honorary Doctor-
ate of Laws from the Univer-
sity of the West Indies.
"Toronto and Canada have
nurtured me the same way Bar-

bados has made me and fash-
ioned me. I'm a Canadian 'with

Toronto Blue Jays baseball
team, and a keen reader, and in

(by James King) of another
great Canadian writer Marga-
ret Laurence, I notice a reference
in it to Barbadian writer, George
Lamming. According to King,
Lamming had an affair with
Laurence when they were strug-
gling as poor writers in London.
But Clarke pooh-poohs it.
"I was at a reception at the
home of (Guyana-born and
former Professor of Literature at

Toronto's York .University)
Frank Birbalsingh and discussed
it in passing with Lamming. And,
he denied it. But, who knows...
and I'm not the one to lecture
George on it."
Clarke's appreciation for
Canadian writing is reflected in
the fact that he had practically
every book written by a Cana-
dian author. But there are also
Caribbean writers. What's hap-
pening with them (including
Trinidad and Tobago-born and
fellow Toronto resident, Neil
Bissoondath, who has just writ-
ten a fictional work about inter-
national terrorism)?
"The Caribbean literary art-
ist has made an impact upon
Canada. But I am disappointed
there -aren't more of us. The
main reason is economic, with
problems in marketing and so
on. But some of the blame must
lie in the writers themselves. I
can't think of an easier country
to be a writer than Canada.
Some writers write political
tracts; not literature. Then there
is the danger of trying to be too
pure. An overabundance of the
use of dialect, for example. You
must retain the essence (of the
society you write about) with

the dialect, but it must.be done
in a way that is comprehensible
to the reader."
Clarke once lectured on lit-
erature at several US universi-
ties, and was Cultural Attache
at Barbados' Embassy in Wash-
ington. Aside from an early
morning stroll, and the occa-
sional browsing in bookstores,
he spends a lot of his spare time
reading and listening to calyp-
sos and jazz when not visiting
with his wife, Betty, who lives
in their other house on
Brunswick Avenue. Daughter,
Loretta, works for Microsoft in
Then there is his writing.
Now 71, he starts slogging away
at the laptop around 11 at night,
and works nearly through to
'foreday morning' as he would
say in Bajan talk, meaning, al-
most till daybreak next day.
"You don't retire from writ-
ing," Clarke remarks as he sees
us off at the enameled painted
front door of his hundred odd
years residence. It's on a street
and neighbourhood he has come
to love, come to embrace as
much as "roads" and towns/vil-
lages back in his island birth-

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to our English Language columns. It
is time you arrange your notes to suit what you
are going to use them for. We suggest that you
write them on handy pocket-sized cards. This
keeps your interest aroused. Love you.

Narrating a Personal Experience

Personal Experiences: Writing about your personal
and real-life experiences helps you keep in touch with
important events of your life. It also allows you to re-
ally know what the events mean to you.
How the writing is done:
Sprwotingtrategy,. Inyour pre-writing,
list the events chronologically the order in which they'
2. Maintain a first person point of view. In other words
tell the experience using the first person pronoun "I."
3. Make your narrative live by including specific facts
and details.
4. Use your language well. Make use of vivid adjec-
tives, also precise verbs and adverbs, and concrete
nouns. This helps your reader share your excitement,
fear or sorrow.
5. Build a conclusion that tells about your thoughts and
feelings about your experience. Then tell what it
means to you.

Today we will help you plan and write your narrative.
Read what we have set out for you, and then refer to
the points when it is necessary, but do not feel tied
.down to the suggestions. You are in charge of your
own writing process. We are just giving guidance on
a general count.
The Pre-writing
This is useful especially when you have assignments
where you are doing the work at home.
You need to select the right incident to write about.
It must be one that is clearly an experience that caused
a change in you. Sometimes it is difficult to pull one
out your memory right away, but there are ways to re-
activate your memory.
- Put down the two headings: "People" and "Places."
Then list memories that come to mind under each head-
- Think back to earlier years.
- Look at old photographs.
- Talk over 'old time' stories with your family.
- Talk about times gone by with a close friend.
- Look up your personal journal entries. [Do you keep

Now that you have hit upon an incident for your nar-
rative, try to recall what happened as fully as possible.
Draw up a list of specific details about the incident.
Here's some help:
- WVho was involved in hthis p aticularn. ::fl"'
- What actually 'I;? ened. an' wherea
- How did I feel as i as goig on?
- What did I learn irn, h exnaeiec?

- What might others learn from my telling about it?

Don't feel worried about this part of your effort called
drafting. It is just a period that allows you to write
freely. Simply tell what happened, step by step. Don't
worry about how it sounds or about the flow of the
ideas. Your business at this time is to set down your
ideas without worrying about polishing them up. Re-
member that a straight chronological retelling of the
event is often best, though some of you may want to
experiment with other approaches. You may want to
be humorous, or to use dialogue to make your narra-
tive lively. Remember in all of your experimenting, that
you must reveal why the event was important to you.

Now pay attention to your revising. Read over
yo-lrdraft-to-make sure-that that whatever you
have written fits your intention and audience
(Yes, audience). You are writing for your teacher
and classmate's interest. Now is the time to have
a writing conference. Read your draft to your
study partner or study group. Look at their re-
action and the items in the revising checklist be-
low to help you evaluate your work.

- Does my personal writing tell my story clearly?
- Does it deal with my personal change or growth?
- Does it show why the incident was important to me?
- Does a sense of "me" come through?
Here is an example of a personal narrative:
It comes from literature called "Blue Highways."
I turned up the heater to blast level, went to the back,
and wrapped a blanket around the sleeping bag. I un-
dressed fast and got into a sweat suit, two pairs of
socks, my old Navy-issue watch cap, a pair of gloves.
When I cut the engine, snow already had covered the
windshield. Only a quarter tank of gas. While the
warmth lasted, I hurried into the bag and pulled back
the curtain to watch the fulminous (related to thunder
and lightning) clouds blast the mountain. The sky was
bent on having a storm, and I was in for a drubbing.

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to our Mathematics columns. File

1. A fraction can be converted into a decimal.
2. A fraction names a decimal; and likewise and a deci-
mal names a fraction. (9/10 = 0.7; 0.03 = 3/100)
3.7/10 is called nine tenths, and 3/100 is called three
4. Ordinarily, 0.7 is called zero point seven.
5.0.08 is called zero point nought eight.
6. The fraction 7/10 says seven parts out of ten parts,
and 8/100 says eight parts out of one hundred parts.
7. To convert a fraction into a parentage, we multiply
it by 100. Percent is written % which is its symbol.
19 = 19 X +e0' = 19%
100 +t00 1
8. Fractions with a denominator of 100 are called per-
centages. Thus:
4/5 = 80/100 = 80%

Solution to fractions into percentages
1) 7/10 = 70%;
2) 4/5 = 80%;
3) 9/25 = 36%;
4) 31/50 = 62%
5) 19/20 = 95%;
6) 18/75 = 24%
7) 35/80 = 433%;
8) 64/192=33 1/3%

Solution to decimals into percentages:
1) 0.7 = 70%;
2) 0.63 = 63%;
3) 0.814 = 81.4%;
4) 0.07 = 7%;
5) 0.063 = 6.3%;
6) 0.05 = 5%

Sometimes there are many facts in a problem. You
then have to choose only the facts you need to an-
swer the question. (Here is the motto: Understand,
Plan, Work, Answer.)
1. Boy Scout Troop 460 had a car wash. They)
charged $800 to wash one car. They washed 32
cars in the morning and 27 cars in the afternoon.
a) How many cars did they wash in all? b) How
much money did.they collect? c) If they spent
$5000 in washing paraphernalia, what was their
2. There were 25 scouts in the troop. Only 20 of
them were working at the car wash. Each scout
needed three sponges. a) How many sponges were
needed? b) If four sponges cost them $100, what was
the cost of the sponges?
3. Frankie worked hour in the morning and 1/2 hour

in the afternoon. Sammy worked a total of 1 hours
more than Frankie that day. a) How long did Sammy
work altogether? b) How many hours did the two
workers do altogether that day?
4. When the scouts charged $800 to wash a car, they
charged $200 more to dry it in a drying room they
rented. Mr. Beatrice had $2,000. How much change
did he receive if he had his car washed and specially
5. On one occasion, a group of 3 scouts worked to-

9. Gregory delivers 1/3 of his Sunday papers on Wil-
liam Street and 4/6 on Green Guava Lane. Is this 1/
6, 2/6, 3/6, 5/6, or all of his Sunday papers?

was an educator
for more than 50
years; teaching at
Queen's College,
Berbic,e High School
and Modern High
School;'teaching -during-'
the colonial and post-.
independent periods,.
teaching the classics in-
cluding English, Latin,
and French. 'Yet he.,
chose to leave his legacy
in a book on local dia-
lect, 'Random.Remairks
on Creolese'.
There is more. to this
unusual tale. His nick-
name, 'The Roman';, was
conferred on him because
of his great love for the
classics; at Queen's Col-
lege, he gained distinction'
in Latin for five consecu-
tive years and % on man.in.
prizes in English. His
speech, delivered :in a soft
mellifluous sway: was im-
peccable as was' his man-
ner of dress and his gait
striding .down hallou ed
halls or astride his 'big-
ben' bicycle. Further, he
was in the first panel .of
judges at the inaugural
staging of the Patrick
Dargan Debating Compe-'
tition, pronouncing on the
proper use of ihe English
Language enunciation,
pronunciation, elo.cition
and articulation.
And there is more. In:L
1929, he founded the Mod-
ern High School along \%%ih
M. M. Beramsingh',:J.. I.
Ramphal and others; an in-

sti.tution that produced sig-
nificant leaders and notables
who relied heavily on the
proper use of the English Lan-:
guage including former presi-
dent Arthur Chung, Brigadier
C. A. L. Price, Sir Harry
Annamanthado, Professor
SDrayton, Bishops.Benedict
- Singh- and-Randolph George,,.
Justice Guya Persaud, Dr.
Balwant Singh, R. B. 0. Hart,
Balram: Singh Rai, Carl
Blackman and Dr. Lloyd
Searwar. Then, Yansen along
with A. A. Thorne, Hubert
Nathaniel Critchlow and
Theo Lee were instrumental
in having Queen's College
built and expanded in Camp
Street in order that more
iGuyanese, future leaders
would be groomed.
H e wrote a column
called 'Random Re-'
marks' for the 'Daily Chronicle'
on topics like education and
music. His programmes of clas-
sical music, 'On Wings of Song'
and 'Music. in the Air', were
broadcast on local radio stations
during the 1930s, ranking him as
a pioneer in broadcasting in

Creolese. In his foreword to
'Random Remarks on
Creolese' (revised edition,
volumes 1 and 2 combined),
* published in 1979, Yansen
declared, 'Creolese is a living
: thing and clearly reflects, the
activities of all Guyanese in
-every walk of life: their hopes
and.fears, joys and sorrows,
vices and virtues, achieve-
.ments and failures and.
abo\e all. their sense. of
humour, without d which life
indeed will not be worth

much'. So it's not surprising
that Yansen staked his life on
this edition he died days
after final editing, after leav-
ing Guyana for England in the
sole pursuit of publishing that
C. A. Yansen was born
to Francis and Elizabeth
Yansen on September 9,
1906; his father who came
from Suriname was multi-.
lingual. He attended St.
Philip's Anglican School
where, through a Blair
Scholarship, he entered,
Queen's College, entrench-
ing himself in various ac-
tivities. He was Head Pre-
fect and captain of Percival-
'A' House. Later, student
became teacher.
In 1929, he co-founded,
along with M. M.
Beramsingh and J. I.
Ramphall, the Modern
High School at lot 47 Robb
Street, Bourda. He was not
satisfied with just starting
an institution; he peopled
it by becoming a benefac-
tor of the Children Dorcus
Club, giving the underprivi-
leged free places to attend
Yansen devoted his time
also to other service oriented
organizations like the Y. M.
C. A. He co-founded the.
League of Coloured People
with John Carter and Claude
Y ansen was a rounded
character; apart from his
educational pursuits, he was
deeply involved in sport at vari-
ouslevels. He participated in
% eight-fting and wrestling, he
was athletic. coach to Bishops'
High School between 1925 and

1906 -

1926 and treasurer to the Berbice
Football Association between
1927 and. 1929.
'Random Remarks' was
first published in 'The,
Lictor', a symbol of author-
ity. 'Random Remarks"' was
first published in 1966, the,
year of Guyana's Indepen-
dence, a time of national iden-,
tity fostered by a peculiar
way of. speech Creolese. In
1969 and again in 1972, this
authoritative school magazine
reprinted 'Random Remarks'.'
B ut that's only part
..of the story of'
'Random Remarks in
Creolese'. In 1968, Yansen
gave a talk on the BBC, an
institution that is the
leader in use of the Queen's
English; since then his
friends prompted .him to
put his random remarks, in
a book form. Yansen was
honoured by Queen's Col-
lege for his work in educa-'
tion and conferred, with a
National Honour, the Ar-
row of .Achievement
,(awarded 'posthumously)
for his works in Linguistics
and Education. '
So no one else could,


have written such a book
According to the Newslet-
ter published by The.,
.Queen's College of Guyana
Association (UK), 'this is
the essential. 'Yango' with
his unique amalgam of
dialectological and literary
eclecticism who else
would have had the temer-
ity to compile appendices
in which quotations from
Virgil, Lucan, Beowulf (in
the original Old English)
and Shakespeare coexist in
harmonious symbiosis with
a list of Georgetown
A. nd this is what
Yansen would have
contributed to the' current
debate/discussion in the lo-
cal newspapers concerning
English and Creolese: 'En-
glish must, and will be, at
least in the foreseeable fu-

ture', the official lang uage:
but Creolese, modernised.
and, streamlined. \ill ever
remain the true'idiom o f all
Guyanese. The reason for
this belief is' clear. In
Creolese today, as has al-
ways been the case, there
are patent signs of endur-
ing strength. All the ele-
ments of. such strength are
there. In spite of what its
critics and detractors may
wish, say, or do, Creolese
will, continue to flourish in
every walk of Guyanese

Local leather tanners say lthat,
besides Guyanese manufac-
turers of-leather products,
neighboring countries Bra-
zil and Suriname are pri-
mary international consum-
ers, who are taking advantage
of Guyanese hides.
The Sunday Chronicle's
Shoe Trends series has taken us
on investigation of leather pro-
duction in Guyana- Leather is
one of the major raw materials
used in the production of shoes
here and is derived from the hides
of, mainly cows, sheep, goats,
caimans and snakes.
We visited two tanneries -
one at Melanie Daiishana East
Coast Demerara and another at
Bel Air Village, Greater
T banners concurred that
operations at local tan-
neries are primitive and laboumi-
tensive in comparison to state-
of-the-art leather production
companies abroad.
Concrete reservoirs, brown
residue.of mangrove bark, fur of
animal skin and a faint smell of
carcass are distinguishing fea-
tures of a local tannery.
Ramsaroop Tanning Estab-
lishment, perhaps Guyana's old-
est tannery, situated at Bel Air
Village, Greater Georgetown has
been in business for more than

ry here and

60 years. Manager
there, Sahadeo - z
Manorath told the
Sunday Chronicle that
he has been converting
hides to leather for
some 30 years.
Starting out as an
apprentice while attend-
ing school in order to earn
a stipend, Manorath later
decided to make a career
out of leather production.
Manorath said that the Bel r-
Air Village tannery began --
operating under the owner-
ship of the Delinas, a Porru-
guese family from
Subryanville. It evolved into a
successful family business and
was subsequently sold to the
At Ramsaroop, the focus is
leather production from the Coli
skins of cows, sheep, goats, ens a pi
caimans, and anacondas for mer- yood0en
chandising to leather craft pro- chemic
ducers. No leather craft is made chemical
at Ramsaroop's Tanning Estab- tanners

Mr Colin Boilers of Melanie
Damishana is a well recognized
self-employed tanner in Guyana,
who began tanning leather with
fur on since 1976. He has drawn
from his father, Claude
Boilers' legacy. The older
Boilers was a taxidermist
for the National Museum.
Taxidermy is the art of
S preparing, stuffing, and
Mounting the skins of ani-
m- als with lifelike effect.
Collin Bollers was
trained in India in leather
craft, production" and
leather tanning technol-
ogy. He combines his
WA skills for tanning and
S leather products
He identified for
us a 15-stage pro-
cess of leather pro-
duction that lasts
several days.

1. Collect
hides and pre-
serve by apply-
ing salt liberally.
Fold to keep
salt in.
S1ow he so*t 2 Leave
L- it ove a salted hides for
tcrn9 at least two
days. (Under controlled
conditions such as a cooling
room, salted hides can be kept
for years).
3. Remove excess salt and
wash to remove all impurities
4. Soak in lime solution
(sludge/limestone/by-product of
production of cooking gas) for
several days turning at intervals
each day.
5. Check for when hair can
be easily removed by finger pres-

sure (lime solution aids the re-
moval of hair).
6. Using rubber gloves, re-
move hair from skin with scud-
ding knife.
7. Remove flesh with
sharper knife.
8. Remove remaining fine
hairs and fat.
9. Rinse until water is clear.
10. De-lime skins with am-
11. Pickle skins in a weak
acid solution
12. Drain skins
13. Prepare mangrove solu-
tion by grinding the bark and
soaking in water.
14. Sandwich skins between
layers of mangrove bark. (The
mangrove bark solution converts
skins to'leather and gives it a
light brown colour)
15. Drain leather and leave
to air dry (leather must not be
dried by direct sun light)

Mr. Bollers tans mainly
hides of buffaloes, cows, goats,
caimans and sheep. Leather from
buffalo skin is most sturdy.
Conversely, leather from sheep
skin is softest of the lot. Caiman
leather he describes as decorative.
and exotic.
Responding to queries
about the method of-
selling leather, both tannets
agreed that leather is priced by
the skifi'area. Prices range from
$1,800 to $2,500. Generally
these prices are fixed based on
estimated size and quality of the
Tanners explained that
leather value hinges on the qual-
ity of skin that they get from ab-
attoirs and butchers, which is
dependent on how animals were
kept and how they were slaugh-
Boilers acknowledged
that retailing leather accord-
ing to skin area may not be
best, but it is a system that
works for tanners. He also
pointed to the fact that some-
times leather is sold before
it is completely dried and

it was nerve-rack
ing standing on
stage with eleven
other finalists while the
Caribbean Star Search
judges reviewed the night's
performances before an-
nouncing a winner.
The Jahphix singer and
songwriter replayed hei
four-minute performance in
her head over and ovej
again and found weak--
nesses in her delivery ol
her number one radio rune.
'I Wonder Why'.
It was no \wonder then
that by the time the judges
were ready to reveal the stai
of the competition. Ouida
was ready to accept what-
ever the final decision was.
Imagine her surprise
when she was declared %% in-
ner of the 2005 Caribbean
Star Competition!
"There was a lot of greai
talent. Before the results
came out and we were all
waning, I was picking at my
performance and finding all
the faults and saying. 'NI)
goodness. if I had only did
this different or that better',
or 'if I had not messed up
on this part maybe I would

announced me as the win-
ner. I was relieved and was
like. '- ow. I did it.'
It has been t\\o week-
since her victory at Russell
Fort James in Antigua and
Ouida, and Henry 'Kansa'
Neiers, the second BVI en-
try. have spent most of their
time doing interview% s with
the local press.
The uncertainty that
overwhelmed her that Satur-
day night was gone. Ouida
was once again anxiety-free
and happily recounted the
night of the show.
'"I was under a lot of
pressure." she said. "I had
jitters from the first time I
heard a few of the contes-
tants sing Saturday. A few
of them were singing on the
bus while on our way to
the radio station and the
little confidence that I had
was crushed."
She remembered telling
the head of Jahphix Enter-
tainment, Kelvin Titdey, that
she was intimidated by the
other finalists.
"I said to Kelvin. "these
people sound really good. I
am really intimidated.' He
replied, 'You have, nothing

Ouida was okay for a few
hours, but on the night of the
show, anxiety returned. It
also didn't help that she was
the penultimate singer on
*"When all the artists were
performing I was even more
nervous," she recalled.
"When I heard my name call

She is the first to tell any-
one that she gave better per-
formances of "I Wonder

"I don't think I did half as
%well as I %would have liked. I
found a lot of faults with my
performance. I -was a bit an-
gry with myself for some
parts, but hey. what can I say,
the damage was already
done. Out of 10 1 would say
6 5." Ouida said.
To the croud. Ouida was

moved liked a pro on stage
and looked liked a winner in

"The crow d responded well.

I started so that they would un-

Ouida %\as really im-

"They were astoundingly
good. I mean really good,"
she smiled. They had to be
to make I to the finals; more
than 2,000 singers sent tapes
to the selecuon committee.
But in the end, she was
the judges' choice. She
scored 434 out of 500 points,
eleven points ahead,of run,

ner-up 'X2'. Third place went
to 'Undaground' with 407
points while the fourth spot
went to Cameron.
"I won yes, but I am not
that happy with my perfor-
mance. I can pick out all the
faults. Even during my per-
formance I was saying "ouch'
to myself when I did a few
bloopers. But the judges be-
lieved I had enough to win

and so be iL I am not going
to complain at all," she said.
The vocalist added:
"Even if I did not win this
competition. I would feel like
a winner because I made it in
the top 12, but when it comes
to my performance. 1 will al-
ways feel I could have done
So, did she have any fun
at all ?
"Of course, besides the
nervousness. I had a ball,"
she laughed.
Her future in music looks
bright. She has won a profes-
sionally produced and re-
corded single along with a
top-quality music video and
two tickets to New York to
appear on a BET digital net-
works show.
A DVD documenting
some of the singer's perfor-
mances throughout her career
is also expected to be re-
leased for the Christmas sea-
As for Nevers, he has no
qualms because he gave one
hundred per cent on the night
of the contest. He performed
'What a Gwan' notably and won
the vote of the crowd.
"I'm not disappointed.
Maybe if they had given it to
the wrong person I would
have been, but the right per-
son got it. I gave my perfor-
mance a hundred per cent
and the response from the
crowd tells me that it was
good. They did not even wait
until the end to applaud.
They applauded through-
out," he said.
. qH. has nothing but admi-

ration for his fellow Jahphix
artist, Ouida.
"There are no words to
explain how I feel because it's
one of our own who won the
competition. What they were
looking for Omuda did, she did
exactly what they asked of
her. The song she sang was
the perfect song to win the
competition. She was the
only one to sing a range of
difficulty. She had the per-
fect song so, she won it"
So what's next for
"'The same things that
'Kansa' always do back
to work and continue re-
cording the remix to the
single "What a Gwan.'
We're going to send it out
to the other Caribbean is-
lands and I am going to
finish my debut album and
get it out there." he
He thanked everyone,
including "the Almighty
God, the whole JahphLx
family, and my co workers at
Sunny Caribbee, for believing
in me."

FRUITS. vegetables and

cause by enzymes, microor-
ganisms and physical dam-
age can be prevented by an
appropriate : pre-drying
treatment. Pre-treatment
also softens the tissue en-
abling the food to. dry
For many produce the
pre-drying treatment is op-
tional and is usually:used as
a holding/storage strategy in
periods of glut fbr future use.
In some produce, however,

short periods.

Blanching by immersion has
the advantage of having com-
parati\ely large amounts of ma-

one time. However, a high level
of soluble solids or sugars can
be leached into the water from
the vegetables which may re-
duce the nutritional content or
render the dried food less attrac-
tive. Steam blanching produces
a more attractive dried product
and is often preferred to water
blanching because there is a
small loss of nutrient by leach-
ing. In some vegetables, the dried
product has an enhanced stor-
age life.
Steaming or water blanch-

Ascorbic acid can also be used

There are various methods
of applying sugar to raw mate,

retard browning and give the

Fruit pieces can also be
dipped into a concentrated:

in the movement of water: out

Some'of the 'advantages of
including this osmotic' step in
the drying process include: .
1) During osmosis the ma-

lower acid content, combined
ith the small amount of sugar
added to the fruit during osmo-

s%'eeter product than that which
is ordinary dried.
1) A thin film of sugar is left
on the surface of the fruit after
drying which may be undesir-.
able. However, this can, be re--
moved by a quick iiin water af-

fruit pieces in boiling syrup for
a:few minutes. This will result
in a change in the texture of the
fruit and a hard gel will form on
the surface. A partially candied
fruit product can be made in this
fashion which can then be dried.
Care should be taken not to im-
merse the fruit in the syrup for
too long as this will encourage
extensive browning. Also, if

to fill holes at dump sites.

If you live in a rural area, then you can bum your own
refuse. Burning of your waste is the best way to get
rid of it. If you cannot bum it then you can get rid of
it by burying it. This is possible in the country area

If you live in a non-rural area, you would collect waste

Now we have an understanding of what recycling
means we can emphasise on the effect it has on the
world today.
There are many misunderstandings about what mate-
rials cannot or can be recycled. These misunderstand-
ings cause a breakdown in the success and cost-effi-
ciency of recycling programs nationwide. However,
with a little consumer education, recycling can be a
very important and environmentally sound solution to
waste management.

creation of national parks.
13. Name a list of about ten Caribbean countries along
with their main line of export.


THE show-ground was beginning to fill up, and the
women helpers kept bumping into you with their big
umbrellas, their baskets, and their babies. You had
frequently to be getting out of the way of a long row
of peasant girls, maidservants in blue stockings and
flat shoes, with silver rings on their fingers, who
smelt of milk when you came close to them. They
spread out hand in hand all across the field, from the
row of aspens up to the marquee. By now the judg-
ing was due to start. And one after another the farm-
ers were filing into a kind of arena marked off by a
long rope hung on stakes.
Inside were the animals, their muzzles toward the
rope, their rumps jostling together in a rough line.
Somnolent pigs sank their snouts in the ground,
calves lowed, sheep bleated, cows sprawled their
bellies on the grass, with one leg bent beneath them,
and chewed with deliberation, blinking their heavy
eyelids as the midges buzzed round them. Short-
sleeved wagoners were-hdlding the-restive stallions
which kept neighing vociferously in the direction of
the mares. These stood quite quiet, stretching out
their necks, their manes drooping, while their foals
rested in their shadows, or came up from time to
time to suck. Above the undulating line of massed
beasts, you saw a white mane ruffling up like a
wave in the breeze, a pair of sharp horns jutting out,
or the heads of some men running. Outside the
arena, a hundred yards farther on, a big black bull
stood apart, muzzled, with an iron ring through its
nostrils, moving no more than an animal of bronze.
A ragged child held it by a rope.
Sundry gentlemen were now advancing with heavy
tread between the rows of animals, examining each in
turn and conferring together in low tones. One, who
looked more important than the rest, made jottings in a
notebook as he went.
Note: Write a composition that tells what happened after
the judging.


Subject and Verb Agreement
Reminder: Do not be confused by a predicate nomina-
tive that is different in number from the subject. Only
the subject affects the number of the linking verb.

of his greatest band
members such as John
Coltrane, Cannonball
Adderly, Bill Evans, Wayne
Shorter, and Paul Cham-
bers, are 'The birth of the
cool', 'Round midnight',
'Miles Ahead', 'Kind of
blue', 'Milestones' and
'Miles Smiles'.
'Kind of blue' remains one
of the greatest jazz albums ever
recorded, both for learning jazz
musicians, and jazz fans. Davis'
lone moody trumpet sounds,
Coltrane's intricate, beautifully
inventive tenor sax, and Bill
Evans with his crystal clear
tonal piano notes, made tunes
such as 'Flamenco Sketches' on
the album, profound musical

Davis, however, knew that the
greatness his albums achieved came
equally from its diverse members.
In his autobiography, he wrote:
"Some of the things that caused Bill
Evans to leave the band hurt me,
like that s..t some black people put
on him about being a white boy in
our band. Now I don't go for that
kinds of s..t; I have always just
wanted the best players in my
group, and I don't care about
whether they are black, white, blue,
red, or yellow. As long as they can
play what I want, that's it."
By the 1960s, Davis would .
single-handedly cause an exciting
return of public interest in Ameri-
can Jazz, which had been eclipsed
by Pop and Rock music being
mostly promoted commercially

ever since the Beatles had a success-
fulAmerican touring the 1960s. But
Davis proved that Jazz could find
equal popularity when he made a
new Jazz sound with albums like
'In a silent way', 'Bitches Brew',
'Jack Johnson', 'Siesta',
'Amandla', and "The man with the
None of Davis' originality
and freshness had gone when he
teamed up with the focused and
frey avant-garde drunmmerJack
Dejonnette for the concert/al-
bum 'Live at Fillmore' in 1970.
Davis and DeJonnette with
their exciting dress fashions and
intense playing created history.
Today, Davis' dedication and
mastery of his trumpet remains
a rewarding example for other
serious musicians and artists.

The Convention aims to ad-
dress the growing concern that
human activities are changing
global climate patterns. Most
scientists now believe that ris-
ing concentrations in "green-
house gases" in the earth's at-
mosphere are contributing
to climate change. The United
Nations Framework Convention
on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
is mandated to meet this chal-

inerference witn mthe climate
system. It also directs that such
a level should be achieved within
a time-frame sufficient to allow
ecosystems to adapt natu-
rally to climate change, to en-
sure that food production is not
threatened and to enable eco-
nomic development to proceed
in a sustainable manner. The

IN THIS week's article, we
will briefly look. at the Provi-
dence Hindu Temple.
There is a distinctive archi-
tecture in Guyana, illustrated in
the numerous timber structures
present throughout the country.
The tropical climate and the
ready availability of timber
meant that wood became the
traditional material of construc-

tion and not the various mate-
rials of the settler's homelands.
In the circumstances, the build-
ings erected were constructed
with modification and design
dictated by the new climatic and

traditional Indian elements
arid the features, usually are
characteristic of domestic
dwellings and Christian vil-
lage church in the country.
The richness in dealing is
exhibited with the useidf deco-
rative and intricate fretwork
over panels, open areas and
doors, stained glass, jalousies,
turned columns and fenestration.
Balustrading is a'promi-
nent feature. This isfbest ex-
hibited in the turned sup-
ports of the handrails of the
staircases and along the gal-
leries and front porches.
The centrally placed Sikhara or
tower is the focal point of this oc-
tagonal structure. On the ceiling, the
ninth panel or segment in the cen-

tre, which is topped by the sikhara
symbolises the God Brahma, the
deity of the Supreme Hindi triad.
The national Trust of
Guyana is the state-owned
agency tasked with preserva-
tion and conservation of the
nation's heritage. We must

tions by preserving glimpses
of our collective past. The

tural heritage. To this end,
the safeguarding. of out na-
tional treasures is.a task that
requires the cooperation of

in the preservation of cul-
tural heritage by ensuring
that sites are not vandalised
or desecrated,but rather kept
in good repair and free from
litter. These actions would
ensure the preservation of

SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 6, 2005

On strayng dogs

N O, THE topic is not
about 'Stray Dogs' that
roam our cities and rural
roadways. Rather, it is about
the actual reprehensible ex-
ercise of straying dogs (cats)
that were once an integral
part of one's household.
These dogs and cats were at
one time cuddly puppies and
cavorting kittens. You saw
these young animals playing
with their mother and with each
other. (The father had long since
abandoned the mother as soon
as the mating act was com-
pleted; sounds familiar?)
They were so cute you

their soft downy baby fur, and
therefore become less cuddly.
As they grow older, they
want to play less. During the
mating season, the male dogs
would roam and come back ema-
ciated, and sometimes with gap-
ing wounds or at least badly
bruised:.The females might have
become pregnant and deposit a,
litter on your doorstep a couple,
of months later.
The scenarios are common,
and suddenly one looks at the
pet with jaundiced eyes.
Every bark, every small
misdemeanor is enlarged to be-
come a source of severe irrita-

their children in the forest. We
read and were read the story in
great abhorrence. It is, similarly,
just as abominable to stray pets.
Can you imagine the panic
in the animal that suddenly can-
not find its way back to the se-
curity of its home, where the
people he loves so unselfishly
and loyally live?
The cold and rainy nights
have to be endured. The sticks
and stones and other forms of
torment from untrained and un-
caring children have to be faced.
The ruthless and reckless mo-
torists add to the terror of the
abandoned pet, many of which

How can anyone call him-
self or herself civilised, when
they are prepared to unleash
such unending pain and suffer-
ing on one of God's creatures
who inhabit this planet; with
We have arrogated unto our-
selves the title of custodian of
our environment, how can we
then execute such a dastardly
act against our wards and fellow
travellers on this spaceship
How can we reconcile such
barbarity with any sense of so-
phistication and decency?
How do we hope to meet
the Maker of all creatures great
and small?
No, dear reader, no and a
thousand time no! Straying
of \our pet i- not an option.
One possible solution is the
GuNana Societ for the Pre-
xention of Cruehi to Ant-
mals (GSPCAi The Animal

Clinic and Shelter will take
the unwanted animals into its
care and try find foster
homes, where kind-hearted
people will care for the aban-
doned pet. As a very final re-
sort and u% ith heavy heart,
euthanasia might be per-
The best thing, of course,
is that you keep the pet you
brought home.Y You treat it
with tender loving care. I can
guarantee that all love will be
requited. Make the pet truly

they would be an asset to \our
household, that the children % kill

The result is either a request
to the veterinarian to haue the
pet put down ieuthanisedi or
the animals is dros ned or
strayed. I suppose that since
one's conscience is pricked by
the concept of euthanasia or
murder, one chooses the latter
option of straying. which is
easier on the psy che.
Well. I am going to disap-
point Nou. Straying the dog icat
is the worst thing you can do
Can you remember how ap-
palled we are as children at the
