MASS protests against crime on the
Corentyne intensified yesterday with police
firing tear gas canisters and pellets at pro-
testers who placed burning tyres, derelict
vehicles, and a low bed trailer, to block the
free flow of traffic on the main road at Tain
and John's and Clifton Settlements.

At least six persons were
reportedly wounded by the pel-
lets but police said they had no
report of this.
On Friday, hundreds of
demonstrators began gathering

along the main roadway near the
Tain koker (sluice) from as early
as 05:00 h accusing police de-
ployed in the region of being
behind recent serious crimes in
the villages and demanding their

urged residents who have infor-

However, at yesterday's
demonstrations, tempers boiled
as the villagers, seemingly dis-
satisfied with the outcome of
the minister's visit on Friday,
returned to the streets, placing
two additional roadblocks about
200 meters apart, at Ankerville
and in the vicinity of the
Berbice Islamic School, some
two miles east of Rose Hall
Between 06:30 h and 07:00
h, members of the Police Tacti-
cal Service Unit, geared for
battle and using a loud hailer,
ordered the protesters, mainly
employees in the sugar indus-

try, to disperse.
The crowd instead hurled
stones at the ranks forcing them
to use tear gas. Police also fired
pellets injuring some persons,

his way to perform a religious
The angry protesters re-
treated but returned to the
streets about an hour after, set-

blocking the road with addi-

Commuters were forced to
use streets aback of the villages
to avoid the protesters who
police estimated at about 500.

lower the level of tension among
the disgruntled residents.
At 10:45 h, the protesters
rushed after one of the many
buses caught between the blocks
on the road, claiming that the
driver had as his passenger, a
member of the Police Black
Clothes group, who is allegedly
responsible for the high inci-
dence of crime.

their target had escaped, the
group, mainly men, ordered the
other vehicles to leave the area.
Some drivers were hesitant
as there was no way out and the
vehicles were subsequently
pushed into the side streets of
the village.
The Police ranks under the
.command of Deputy Com-
mander S. Jarvis, returned to the
scene at 11:34 h, and after a se-
ries of warnings, the demonstra-
tors continued throwing mis-
siles, forcing the ranks to again
fire tear gas.
The crowd dispersed and
just after 12:00 h, a front end
loader was mobilised to remove
the derelict vehicles blocking the
road. About half an hour after,
vehicles were allowed to
traverse freely.
During the protest traffic
was at a standstill as scores of
buses, cars and other vehicles
lined the route in the logjam,
with stranded passengers, in-
cluding some scheduled to catch
flights at the Cheddi Jagan In-
ternational Airport, Timehri.
The University of Guyana
Tain Campus had to postpone
its annual convocation sched-
uled for yesterday because of
the street protests.
Police yesterday put the
crowd of protesters Friday at
.about 1,200 and said they also
damaged the hoses of a fire truck
that had gone to put out the fire
on the roadway and threw mis-
siles at Police ranks. Police said
none of their ranks were injured.
Teixeira, accompanied by
Deputy Commissioner of Po-
lice, Mr Edward Wills, Divi-
sional Commander Assistant
Commissioner Clinton Conway
and Regional Chairman, Mr
Kumkaran Ramdass on Friday
met the residents at the scene of
the blockage and at the Tain
Primary School in attempts to
discuss the issues and concerns

and resolve the situation.
A 15-member representa-
tive team from among the resi-
dents was identified and is ex-
pected to meet the minister
who is scheduled to return to
the area tomorrow to deal with
the issues in more detail, police

Police said some 500 re-
sumed the protest yesterday and
senior officers, Ramsammy and
regional officials, including the
Regional Chairman, appealed to
the demonstrators to desist from
their activities and return to their
homes, but to no avail.
Police said the crowd then
began to throw missiles and
bottle bombs at them and "af-
ter considerable tolerance and
restraint and out of concern for
public safety and their own per-
sonal safety, the Police used
tear-smoke and pellets to dis-
perse the crowd."
Up to yesterday afternoon,
the Police said they had not re-
ceived any report of anyone re-
ceiving injuries.
A statement said Police
ranks are maintaining their vigi-
lance in the area.
The Police Force "is calling
on all residents to stop block-
ing the roadways and is giving
the assurance that all the issues
raised with the Minister of
Home Affairs will be dealt with
to finality.
"Although peaceful pro-
testing in itself is not an offence,

The five-day protest had in-
tensified with large crowds gath-

Port Mourant, railing against the
police, demanding the resigna-
tion of then Home Affairs Min-
ister Mr Ronald Gajraj and call-
ing on President Bharrat Jagdeo
to visit the area to deal with the
crime scourge personally.
Residents had said that
their appeal for redress of ram-
pant crime had gone unheeded
for a long time and that was the
reason for their protest.
In March this year, there
was a major Police shake-up in
Berbice following mounting con-
cerns over the crime situation
there and the seeming ineffec-
tiveness by the Police to deal
with the scourge.

meeting between President

ROGUE cops undermine the integrity of a police
service and make it all the more difficult to win
public support in the battle against crime.
This problem is now very much on the doorsteps
of the Guyana Police Force, according to increasing
It is pointless for either the Police Commissioner
or Minister of Home Affairs in any national jurisdiction
to quickly promise an investigation, whenever faced
with public complaints, unless some progress is

Caribbean Community states, such as Jamaica and
Trinidad and Tobago, of "rogue cops" being engaged
in armed robberies, ransom kidnapping, and even


BRUCE Golding, the
Jamaican opposition
political leader waiting in
the wings to become Prime
Minister, has given a
surprisingly strange warning
to the Caribbean
Community (CARICOM)
governments to stay out of
any "anti-USA crusade" -
as headlined in a 'Jamaica
Observer' report last
It is surprising because

as they continue to strengthen
mutually acceptable relations
with both Cuba and Venezuela,
which are headed by Presidents
strongly disliked by the George
Bush administration.
Golding's puzzling
"advice" to CARICOM
governments to avoid being
"conscripted into a meaningless
and bombastic crusade against
the United States", has
coincided with deepening
tension in U.S.-Venezuela
Also, at a time when

and abroad, on critical issues of

Here in Guyana, the vehement street protests
over the past two days at Tain on the Corentyne against
alleged police culpability in a series of armed robberies
of residents and a Texaco gas station have served to
underscore the gravity of a widening problem of the
"enemies within" the GPF the so-called "rogue
Less than two months ago, Crimb Chief Henry
Greene himself had the courage and decency to
publicly deplore the damage being done to the'GPF by
corrupt elements in the Force.
No example has yet been made of what happens
to rogue cops who either accept bribe for winking at
crimes committed or, worse, themselves engage in
rent-a-gun, rent-a-uniform practices, when directly
involved in armed robberies.
Following the recent shooting death of young Carl
Abrams of Nabaclis that led to angry protests by
villagers, President Bharrat Jagdeo himself became
involved in demanding a prompt investigation.
The results of that probe have been forwarded to
the Director of Public Prosecution while a policeman
remains under "close watch" pending advice from the
In the case of the protests at Tain, both Home
Affairs Minister Gail Teixeira and Police Commissioner
Winston Felix have given assurances of prompt and
thorough investigation into the claims of a number of
residents of failure by the police in the area to take
decisive actions on robbery reports.
Worse, that some of the cops in Region Six are
themselves suspect in cases of armed robberies.
When citizens are outraged by the extent of loss and
physical assaults they suffer, they are likely to make
some very serious allegations without having
possession of material evidence.

However, what makes the current situation
difficult for the police's credibility is their failure, in a
number of instances, to produce results with arrests
and successful prosecutions against suspects -
whether civilians or members of the Force.
A question of immediate relevance is whether
the police here and elsewhere in the region can
honestly be expected to investigate crimes of their
own colleagues, like murder, ransom kidnapping, or
armed robberies.
Within recent times-both Jamaica and Trinidad
and Tobago have demonstrated a capacity to do so,
resulting in arrests of cops and in helping to restore
some public confidence.
There is no good reason why it cannot also be
done within our own local Force.
Given the spreading problems of "rogue cops"
in various regional jurisdictions, it is to be expected
that this issue of deep public concern will be
addressed as a matter of priority by the Association
of Caribbean Commissioners of Police (ACCP) at their
meeting next month in Barbados.

- preaching right, doing wrong

- Strange warning from Jamaica's Golding

Party leader is regarded as an
experienced monitor of regional
affairs. He should,
therefore, know that whatever
lingering reservations there may
be by a few regional
administrations, the bilateral
agreements between various
CARICOM governments -
including Jamaica's and that
of President Hugo Chavez on the
PetroCaribe project, were
certainly not entered into with
any intention of undermining
historically good CARICOM-
U.S. relations.
Nor has CARICOM been
pursuing its deepening relations
with Cuba as part of any
"bombastic anti-US crusade", to
quote Golding, in consort with
either the Cuban or Venezuelan
In the absence of any
tangible evidence of such a single
or collective approach by
CARICOM, independent
observers may well conclude
that Golding's warning is
misplaced and raises a credibility
problem and not one for
On the other hand, what
seems quite relevant, is for
governments, opposition parties and
civil society organizations to
pay attention to current frenzied
efforts by the Bush
administration to salvage some
credibility, at home and
abroad, over mounting reports of
gross human rights violations by
the U.S.


Such disturbing reports
include use of incendiary arms
against civilians in Iraq and the
outsourcing of torture of
suspected terrorists at
u n d i s c l o s e d
foreign detention centres.
But the Bush
administration seems more
comfortable preaching 'freedom,

democracy and human rights' to
the world than in engaging in any
critical assessment of its own
policies that are increasingly
creating problems for America
abroad. Basically, it is a posture
of preaching what is right but
doinm what is wrone.

Just over a week ago, the
United Nations rejected
Washington's conditional offer to
visit Guantanamo Bay to probe
rising allegations of torture and
other forms of human rights
abuse among some 500 foreign
political prisoners.
The UN said it would be
a waste of time if its delegation
cannot have freedom of access to
speak in private with the
prisoners. A few days later, the
UN also felt compelled to call for
an international probe into
prisoner detention conditions in
This call came in the wake
of credible media disclosures of
brutal torture and starvation of
Iraqi prisoners by the interim
regime's Ministry of Interior in
Together, these positions
of the UN could further pile
pressures on President Bush,
whose popularity ratings
continue to plummet at home as
the crescendo of criticisms
abroad against U.S. foreign

policy, in particular its role in
Iraq and involvement in
torture of foreigners
unilaterally deemed 'suspected
terrorists', continues to fuel
a n g r y
leaders, among
them President
B h a r r a t
Jagdeo, who I
attended the recent R I
Fourth Summit of
the Americas in
Argentina, would
have had a ringside
view of the \I
passionate '
denunciations by
thousands of protesters of the
policies being pursued by
President Bush.
It is quite ironical to
learn that against exposures of
crimes committed by Saddam
Hussein, including use of
chemical weapons against
minority Iraqi Kurds and
barbaric cruelties unleashed on
political opponents, the
occupying U.S. military force
should now be accused of
resorting to white
phosphorous bombs against
Iraqi civilians in the city of
Fallujah against the backdrop
of shameful prisoners abuse at
detention centres in Iraq,
Afghanistan and Guantanamo


The BBC has reported
on a documentary by Italy's
state-owned 'TV Rai', on the
eve of the recent official visit
by Iraqi President Jailal
Talabani that exposed the
consequences of the
phosphorous bombs used
against civilians.
The results were burned
bodies, including women and
children. The device, when it'

makes contact with skin, results
in irreversible damage, burning
flesh to the bone, according to
the documentary.
Normally used for
battlefield illumination, the U.S.
military has denied using the
spontaneous flammable chemical

and Afghanistan.
Exposures by human
rights organizations and the
media have prompted the UN
and the European Union to
launch their separate
investigations into this
phenomenon of outsourcing of
torture by the U.S.
For its part, the Bush
administration, having failed to
deny or confirm the reports, is
faced with a current move by
congressional leaders for an



against civilians during raids on
Further, while reputable
international human rights
organizations were focused on
this discovery, there came
reports of mind-numbing torture
and other abuse, including
starvation of Sunni prisoners by
Shia militia personnel in the
employ of Shia elements
collaborating with Iraq's
Ministry of the Interior.
The UN's High
Commissioner for Human
Rights, Louise Arbour, has now
urged an international
investigation into the detention
conditions at an Interior
Ministry building following
reports of torture and
widespread problems with the
detention system in Iraq.
In the U.S. itself,
lawmakers, both Republican and
Democrats, are pressing for
independent investigation into
reports that the Central
Intelligence Agency is
administering a programme by
which terror suspects are held
incommunicado at clandestine
detention locations established in
a number of foreign states,
including Poland, Romania,
United Arab Emirates, Thailand

investigation into leaks of the
CIA's network of secret
detention centres abroad,
established after the terrorist
strikes of 9/11 against the U.S.
In the case of denial of
access to speak in private with
the political prisoners being
held by the U.S. at
Guantanamo, the UN is now
faced with a
problem complained against
a long time ago by the
International Red Cross.
International human
rights organizations in America
and Europe have been urging,
without success, the Bush
administration to facilitate
independent investigation of
torture and widespread
abuse of prisoners at
It, however, appears
that President Bush and
colleagues like Secretary of
State Condoleezza Rice, are
more anxious to lecture
foreign governments, among
them those of Cuba and
Venezuela, on human rights
and democracy than to
respond to the uproars,
abroad and at home, over
policies that are further
tarnishing America's image.

The spiraling rate of
world poverty is shocking.
There is so much more and yet
daily, thousands more are
condemned to a life of poverty
and destitution, living on less
than US$1 per day. Advanced
technology in all. areas of life,
including food production and
phenomenal growth of certain
pockets of the world economy
seem not to be able to beat back
poverty and world hunger.
When one looks at the
world statistics from the most
developed and to the poorest of
developing countries, we see one
trend those who have are
getting much more and those
who don't have are getting less
or nothing. The disparity in
income within and among
nations is growing out of control.
Here are some facts on
world poverty recently revealed
by the United States Newsweek
magazine as supplied by a
leading World Bank economist:
the number of countries in
the comfortable zone has fallen
from 41 in 1960 to 31 today
the. number of rich non-
western nations has fallen from
19 to 9

countries which were 16 times
higher than those of the poorest
countries in the 1960s, grew to

Everyday the answers to
this global crisis seem murkier.
Economists and other social
scientists are pondering on
various models. Ideologues
debate which 'ism' is the
solution. The globalisation and
anti-globalisation camps are

Newsweek observed:
"The formulas that international
financial institutions have offered
to transform the less-fortunate
nations of the world have
generally failed to do one thing
necessary to win lasting
advocates for reform:, enable
those who are poor to join the
middle-class or even to
realistically aspire to it."
Where do we stand in this
frightening reality? Listen to the
nay-sayers and prophets of doom
and gloom and you think that
Guyana is part of the global trend
of rising poverty. Fortunately,
we are not!
Guyana today has a
Poverty Reduction Strategy
which is being supported by the
international financial
institutions. This is just not
another generic strategy with the
usual list of 'remedies.' It is a
homegrown strategy formulated
after countrywide consultation
and involvement of all
stakeholders. It is a Guyana
strategy for Guyana's poverty-
related problems.
Look at the national
budgets over the past decade and
one can see the massive
investment in poverty reduction
programmes and the massive
expenditure in health, education,
water, housing and job creation.
Guyana has a very
attractive investment policy and

is targeted for cutting by the
administration. Investment
means jobs and more jobs lead
to less poverty.
The Government too
has been embarking on major
programmes intended to
modernize the country's hard
and soft infrastructure. These
not only create an enabling
investment for the private
sector, but give job
opportunities for thousands
more. Initiatives such as LEAP,
the Youth Skills Training
Programme, the Community
D&I support project and
many others are to
complement existing
programmes to provide training
and retraniing for people
especially the unemployed.
Also, the Government
working in tandem with the
private sector has established
entrepreneur incubation
schemes. The small business
sector is growing rapidly with
IPED and the Small Business
Initiative Scheme creating
thousands of new
entrepreneurs annually. There
is no doubt that the private
sector is the creator of jobs
and wealth.
And if there are
doubts about the downward
slide in poverty in Guyana,
let's look at a few basic facts:
the rate of poverty in

1990 was close to 80%. It is
now below 35%
the per capital income a
decade ago was about US$230;
it is now US$900
the minimum wage of
public servants was just $3050.
per month, now that amount has
jumped to $23,204.
'the rate of inflation is
down from 100% to about 6%
from zero new owners of
house lots, there are now 65,000
house lot owners
unemployment is down
from 30% to about 9%
And there are many more
indicators including the mammoth
growth of small business owners,
ballooning savings at Banks, rise

in vehicle ownership and the
myriad initiatives which have
attacked the social disease -
poverty frontally. The reality
is that more people are finding
out that it is glorious to be rich
and many more see that light
ahead of them.
Undoubtedly the
country's people-faced market-
based economic model stands as
an example to be tried by many.
The unique and successful anti-
poverty approaches can serve as
a model or as the Inter-American
Development Bank had
described "as a shining light"
for the developing world.
Already, some are turning to the
'Guyana approach.'

Is the process

facing a ...

(From page seven)
providing the options for
people to have meaningful jobs.
Critical to the achievement
of that goal is the necessity of a
favourable external trade
environment. This position was
supported by other CARICOM
leaders who attended. (All the
Prime Ministers of the
Organisation of Eastern
Caribbean States were
conspicuously absent, giving the
impression in some diplomatic
quarters that the Summit of the
Americas was not a priority on
their agenda).
Further, the ambitious
summit action plan proposed an
extensive list of multinational
projects aimed at promoting
economic and social
development in the hemisphere.
But it will be interesting to see
how the Inter-American
Development Bank, a major
partner in the summit process,
will be able to garner and allocate
funds towards these enterprises.
Currently, the dust in
the summit process continues to

be kicked up by the animosities
between Mexico and Venezuela.
At the summit, the FTAA
discussions escalated into
rancour between the Venezuelan
and Mexican presidents. Their
verbal exchange eventually
resulted in the withdrawal of
Ambassadors, and the world
now looks on to see how this
Venezuelan-Mexican standoff
will play out.
Obviously, integration
is certainly taking a beating as a
result of all this, and it is in the
interest of the other countries of
the hemisphere to help in the
restoration of cordiality
between the two presidents.
Differences in opinions and
ideologies should inspire healthy
debate; they should not be
allowed to breed animosities in
the region.
All the countries should
take a side. They must opt for
healthy critical co-existence
while choosing the side of
hemispheric, integration.

Bosnia: A kind of progress

By Gwynne Dyer

Now that I am in this
crazy fervour of mine
I could do just about
So your stupid, rotten,
vain souls
Wouldn't stare at me
with their stupid peaceful eyes

RADOVAN Karadzic, leader
of the Bosnian Serbs during
their 1992-95 attempt to
cleanse the areas where they
were a majority of all other
ethnic groups, destroy
Bosnia and unite with
Serbia, is a rotten poet, but
his recently published
volume of poetry shows that,
after ten years as a fugitive,
he is still filled with rage
and hate.
Unfortunately, so is the
Bosnian state he tried to
Things have been
looking up recently in the
"west Balkans"', the phrase
that European Union
bureaucrats use to describe the
space occupied by Albania and
the splintered remains of
former Yugoslavia.
The prospect of eventual
EU membership has drawn the
various successor states into
reforms that are gradually
transforming them from chaotic
post-Communist autocracies
into democratic states under the
rule of law. Slovenia was
actually admitted to the EU last
year, and the others are rapidly
joining the queue.
Furthest along are
Croatia, which began entry
talks last month, and
Macedonia which will
probably become an officially
recognized candidate for
membership next month.
Albania is well along in the
process of negotiating a
"Stabilisation and Association

Agreement" with the EU, the
essential precondition to
candidate status, and Serbia and
Montenegro began SAA talks
with Brussels last month.
Bosnia, however, is
bringing up the rear, mainly
because of the physical and
moral devastation inflicted on the
country by the Balkan wars that
began when Slobodan Milosevic,
an ultra-nationalist Serb, achieved
near-dictatorial powers in

Belgrade and launched his project
to unite all the Serbs of former
Yugoslavia within one country.
There was no fighting in Serbia
itself, but Croatia, with a
relatively small Serb minority,
endured years of war and
Bosnia, where Serbs are 40 per
cent of the population, was
virtually destroyed.
By 1995, when
international intervention and a
NATO bombing campaign against
Serbia ended the slaughter in
Bosnia, a quarter-million of its
4.5 million people were dead and
almost half had been driven from
their homes. Even now only a
half-million of the two million
refugees have dared to return to
the homes from which they had
been "cleansed," and the
country's Gross Domestic
:Product is only 60 per cent of
what it was when the fighting
began. At the current- rate of
growth, it will not return to the
1992 level until 2015.
The reason for such

slow growth, as for much else
that plagues Bosnia, is the
peace agreement that was more
or less imposed on the local
factions by the United States at
the talks in Dayton, Ohio in
1995. It stopped the fighting,
but at the cost of carving the
county into two "entities", one
for the Serbs who had been
responsible for most of the
cleansing and other atrocities,
and the other a shotgun
marriage of the Croats and the
Muslims of Bosnia (who had
also been fighting each other).
Republika Srpska, as
the Bosnian-Serb entity is
known, has generally elected
governments made up of ethnic
nationalists who openly say
they would rather unite with
Serbia than stay in Bosnia.
The Muslim-Croat
federation has two separate
ethnic governments, but is also
divided into ten cantons with
populations that are dominated
by one group or the other, each
with its own parliament and
government. Counting a very
weak central government (with
a three-man presidency that
rotates between a Serb, a Croat
and a Muslim every eight
months), Bosnia has a total of
14 governments. No wonder it's
The old, tolerant,
ethnically integrated Bosnia is
gone forever: every
municipality save one has a
population that is 90 per cent
or more from a single ethnic or
religious group. But EU
membership is a great carrot,
and Brussels and the United
States are both using that
prospect to push Bosnian
leaders into a new constitution
that would strengthen the
central government greatly at
the expense of the ethnically
defined "entities" and simply
eliminate the ten cantons.
Since most of Bosnia's
multitudes of politicians have
strictly ethnic political bases,
it's a bit like asking turkeys to

For the Health of Women, For the Health of the World,

ff "No More Violence"

On the Observance of International Day for the Eliminafgon of Violence against Women, November 25, 2005
On November 25, 2005 the world over observed International Day for the Elimination of Violence
against Women with the theme "For the Health of Women, For the Health of the World, No more
Because of the serious nature of this phenomenon, MOP, an organization with a mission 'To Promote
Responsible Manhood' and with an aim tp help to eradicate violence against women and children, in
our homes, communities and in the society at large, decided that we must get involved in the
observance of this day.
Men of Purpose has assumed the role or educating men to deal with challenges and conflicts in the
home so that violence against women cahi be eliminated. We believe, if this trend were to continue, our
small society will suffer significantly.
As the current President of Men of Purpose, I am pleased to share a message with all Guyana to help in
the process of bringing about greater awareness in our society of this serious social ill violence against
On this important day, I appeal to all Guyanese to oppose violence againstpur wives, mothers, sisters,
aunts, nieces aid grandmothers. We believe that our sisters have the Gad-given right to life and that
right must be recognized, respected and accepted by all, and more importantly by members of our
Our women hav been given by the Creator the responsibility of bringing forth children into the world, a
responsibility that no man regardl ss ofi his status or power can ever performr. As such, members of
families, espec aly husbands or partners must ensure that they enjoy the bst of health; prior to the
pregnancy, during the 'pregnancy and there after for the rest of their lives. [Bearing in mind that the
pregnant womarh does no-have to be physically abused in order to affect her health and that of her
foetus, for, if she is abused emotionally, psychologically, mentally and verbally, the health of the
unborn child can be seriously affected.
Thus, after birth, that child having suffered while in the uterus, will most likely perform at a level lower
than that of normal child.
It is therefore inOperative that all men, especially those in permanent and even'those casual
relationshipsiwithlwomen should place premium on the achievement and maintenance of the health of
those women because of the serious consequence that such a deficiency can have on the women, the
family, the community, the nation and the world at large.
It is my humbje opinion that if we sincerely love, honour and cherish our wives and female partners and
all women, it is more likely that abuse and violence will never be part of those relationships. Men, let us
see and accept w4men as special and precious gifts that the Creator has given to us and we must use
all the resources at our disposal to treat them like angels and queens, and in the process it is most likely
that they will reciprocate. Such a situation can only result in peace, joy and happiness. ;
My dearly beloved sisters, especially those who at this point in time, are in abusive or violent
relationships, please do not give up or ose faith. Help is around the corner. MOP is here and you will
be guarantee, the relevant support which will see your husbands or partners reverting to showing you
and the rest of your:family love, care and attention.
On behalf of Men of Purpose I would like again to call on all peace-loving and law-abiding citizens to
join forces with us so that we can work assiduously and consistently for the elimination of all forms of.
violence against women.
May God grant His blessings on us that one day soon violence against women will be removed from the
homes and communities of this beautiful land of ours.

I got flowers today!
It wasn't my birthday or any other special day;
We had our first argument last night; And he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt; I know that he is sorry
and didn't mean to say the things he said;
Because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today!
It wasn't our anniversary or any other special day;
Last night he threw me into a wall and then started choking me;
It seemed like a nightmare, but you wake up from nightmares to find they aren't real.
I got flowers today!
And it wasn't Valentine's Day. or any other special day;
Last night he beat me and threatened to kill me;
Make-up and long-sleeves didn't hide the cuts and bruises this time;
I couldn't go to work today because I didn't want anyone to know but I know he's sorry; Because he sent
me flowers today.
I got flowers today! .
And it wasn't Mother's Day or any other special day;
Last night he beat me again, and it was much worse than all of the other times;
if I leave him, what will I do? How will I take care-of the kids? What about money?
I'm afraid of him, but I'm too scared and dependent to leave him! But he must be sorry;
Because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today ..Today was a very special day-it was the day of my funeral;
Last night he finally kil edf me-I was beaten to death;
The women's shelter could have helped me, but I didn't ask for their help ,So I got flowers today....

on December 17, 1999, the General Assembly at the 83rd plenary meeting of
the fifty-fourth session, of the Report of the Third Committee (A/54/598 and
Corr.1 and 2), adopted Resolution 54/134 on the International Day for the

The General Assembly expressed alarm that endemic violence against
women was impeding women's opportunities to achieve legal, social,
political and economic equality in society. The Assembly reiterated that the
erm "violence against women" refers to acts capable of causing physical,
sexual or psychological harm, whether in public or private life.

Men of Purpose
In keeping with this important day, MOP had organized a March and Rally through the streets of Georgetown

I I often think that NIS is a waste of time. I would like to stop.paying for 41
myself and employees and pay a private insurance. Why can't I?

Unfortunately, there are persons who' are still not fully aware of the role
of Social Security. As a result, there will be some degree of discontent E]
resulting in such feelings. Social Security unlike other forms of insurance,
is always compulsory. It is a sign of civilization and a means of providing u
I for the citizens of a country. The Benefits that can be derived outweigh the .
contributions made by persons. This is because the spread of risk is ,
much greater (the entire country).

The Social Security Act ensures that workers are protected by securing ]
income. While some employers, even some self-Employjedpersons, will
protect their workers and themselves so that they do not become a
liability on society when faced with certain conditions, many will opt not I
to do.so. Social Security contributes to protecting the social fabric of 1
society. It assists in poverty alleviation. This cannot be left to chance or
to the good nature of few individuals. What would happen tolthe vast \

Summit to

end with

a bang!

From Michelle Nurse in Malta |

WHATEVER the outcome to-
day of the discussion among
heads of government of the
Commonwealth, the
CHOGM will end with a
This is in spite of Common-
wealth Secretary General Don
McKinnon's assertion prior to
the start of the CHOGM
(Commonwealth Heads of Gov-
ernment Mfeeting) that the
organisation of former British
colonies does not look for "big
bang solutions".
The meeting has explored
potentially explosive subjects
for the diverse community of
nations including terrorism,
forced migration and the vulner-
ability of small states.
At noon today, a 21-gun sa-
lute will bring the two-day re-
treat of heads to a close. The
guns will be fired from the old-
Saluting Battery at the Upper
Barrakka Gardens in Valletta,
The guns are early 19th
century Royal Malta Artillery.
The battery was used to ex-
change salutes with ships, salute
on the sovereign's birthday and,
coronation as well as on the
birthdays of royalty and during
the feast of the Patron Saint of
Malta, St. Paul, local newspa-
per The Times said yesterday.

The conclusion is likely to
arouse a bit more enthusiasm
than the opening ceremony at the
Mediterranean Conference Cen-
tre (MCC) which featured a half-
hour choreography of the story
of Malta. While the special ef-
fects were spectacular, it was a
challenge to link the multi-media
production to the country's rich
7,000-year history.
The performance was in-
tended to take the audience
from the era of the nymph 'Ca-
lypso' who, according to legend,
lived in a cave in Gozo the is-
land of love and honey, a 30-
minute ferry ride away from
Malta through the Temple Pe-
riod of goddesses and unprec-
edented architectural feats of
4000-5000 BC.
The production also aimed
to depict the Arab and Norman
Influences in the Middle Ages,
the turbulence of the Great Siege
of 1565, .through ,World War II,
independence in 1964 and mem-
bership of the European Union
in 2004.
The MCC, which Malta
flaunts as the flagship of con-
ference venues, exhibitions, ban-
quets and theatrical events, is it-
self rich in history.
The cavernous building
overlooking the city's Grand
Harbour, has an unpretentious

facade. On the inside, however,
is a wonderful mix of the ancient
and modem. Strategically placed
full-body brass armour of the
Knights of Malta stand guard at
the centre's entrances and along
some corridors.
For the CHOGM, a media
holding room with WiFi and live
transmission facilities was made
available. The predominantly
red theme of the interior de-
signs was a perfect foil for-the.
natural sand-coloured stone
Built in 1574, the building
was once a hospital of 'Sacra
Infermeria' of the order of St.
John of Jerusalem. It was said
to be one of the best hospitals
in Europe that was capable of
accommodating 914 patients in

Commonwealth heads back

Guyana, others in sugar fight

From Michelle Nurse in Malta | .

GUYANA and other sugar
producers have clinched sup-
port from the Commonwealth
in their battle to stave off the
drastic impact on their econo-
mies of a steep cut in prices
for their exports to the Euro-
pean Union.
President Bharrat Jagdeo, at
the meeting of Commonwealth
leaders here, registered deep dis-
may at the decision by the EU
last week to cut the price paid
for sugar from Guyana and
other'members in the African.
Caribbean and Pacific (ACP)
grouping and to pay higher
compensation for losses to Eu-
ropean beet sugar producers
than would be offered to the
ACP producers.
He was reportedly sup-
ported by several other heads
-of government here and a bold
statement on trade emerged
yesterday from the meeting
stressing the need for assistance
for small countries in transition
.from subsidized to open mar-
Late yesterday afternoon,
following what Malta Prime
Minister Lawrence Gonzi de-
-scribed as "intense" and "for-
ward-looking" discussions, the
heads issued the statement in
which they urged the EU to:
"...provide transitional fi-
nancial arrangements in which
there is symmetry between
compensation provided to these
Commonwealth sugar producers
on one hand, and EU producers
on the other."
"We also urge the European
Union to take into account that
vulnerable small states are less
capable of adjustment in the en-
visaged reform time-table, and
that compensation should be de-
livered in an efficient and timely
fashion," the statement said.
Following a meeting with
Caribbean leaders in Malta yes-
terday, Chair of the EU, British
Prime Minister Tony Blair ac-
knowledged that poorer-coun-
tries need time to build their ca-

abilities and help to cushion
the effects of liberalised trade.
Trade has eclipsed the other
issues at this Commonwealth
meeting with the EU decision to
cut sugar prices by 36 per cent
over a period of four years
epitomising the vulnerable po-
sition the small states find
themselves in the international
In addition to the cut in
prices, just less than the 39 per
cent the grouping had earlier
agreed to, the EU will compen-
sate its farmers who are willing
to cease growing beet.
The Caribbean leaders met
Blair yesterday morning on the
new decision which will place
their sugar industries in jeop-
They have called for a simi-
lar level of compensation for
the tens of thousands of regional
farmers who will be affected by
the decision. The ACP group of
former British colonies is ask-
ing for resources to the tune of
100M Euros in 2006 and 500M
Euros thereafter to cope with
the fallout from the decision.
EU beet sugar producers
will now receive compensation
covering 64.2 per cent (includ-
ing an additional 2.2 billion Eu-
ros) of the loss incurred by the
price cut. In contrast, a meagre
40M Euros has been offered to
ACP sugar producers as com-

Noting that "Britain has a
position that is very similar to
the developing countries and
that the EU's position is 'some-
what different'," Blair said in
the interview made available to
the Sunday Chronicle:
"It's very important to un-
derstand what the Caribbean is
saying...It's very difficult if
you're a small country with one
commodity with which you do
a lot of your trading and on
which a lot of jobs depend. It's
very hard if that distorted mar-
ket, nonetheless one on which
you rely, is changed."
"I'm actually quite sympa-
thetic to their cause for strong
transitional help. What I still
believe, however, is that the
World Trade Organisation has
really made clear that we have
to change; we have to change the
European policy," Blair said.
President Jagdeo has said
that Blair at the London meet-
ing offered to help get measures
to cushion the impact of the

drastic sugar price cuts.
The President last week
told the Government Informa-
tion Agency (GINA) Blair prom-
ised that the United Kingdom
will seek to lengthen the transi-
tional period-for the EU sugar
reform proposal, push for an
increase in transitional assis-
tance, and examine the issue of
greater market access for the
Caribbean in light of the reallo-
cation of quotas.
The WTO has branded the
EU policy as illegal and had or-
dered it to be dismantled by
mid-May following a case
brought by Brazil, Thailand and
Blair said yesterday that the
Caribbean leaders have ac-
knowledged that the regime un-

der which they sold sugar to
Europe at three times the world
market price was not a sustain-
able position, but that they have
stressed the need for resources
to cushion the effects of
liberalised trade.
The Commonwealth Heads
meeting falls just before the
Doha Development Round
scheduled for Hong Kong in
December and Blair told the
BBC World Service, "I think we
can get a strong statement on
the importance of the trade
Commonwealth Secretary
General Don McKinnon had
earlier alluded to a disturbing
level of apathy to the Doha
round of negotiations, but Blair
is confident that the pace will

be accelerated this week with
the holding of the G7 meeting
of Finance ministers which Bra-
zil and India will attend.
"At the core of the Doha
Round is the imperative of
delivering development divi-
dends. Therefore, we high-
light the importance of ap-
propriate Special and Differ-
ential Treatment for develop-
ing countries and small
states in particular. These
countries have neither ben-
efited fully from past multi-
lateral trade negotiations nor
have the capacity to adjust or

outcomes envisaged in the
Doha Development Agenda,"

Message from his excellence
President (aq)
the Hon Dr. Samuel Hinds,
Prime Minister of Guyana -
These 10 years seem to have gone by
so quickly. It seems that only
yesterday the privatization of Guyana
National Engineering Corporation
saw the-emergence of the Guyana
National Industrial Corporation, with
a unique ownershipAlliance that very
it.. .li,.... ,i -." .i:,k onebetweenthe
private sector, unions and workers.
The fledgling GNIC introduced an
ownership structure which advocated,
and practices. ploughing back profits
to catalyze growth.

In just a decade, this combination of
Guyanese investment, expertise, and
labour, has dispelled the myth that
"the only guarantee of improvement
in the overall performance of state-
owned companies is f"or government
to transfer management and
ownership to foreign private
entrepreneurs ".

The Government of Guyana is

Pleased to recognize the GNIC as a
"success story" in the Nation's
industrial and economic
development, and an active
contributor to Government's sectoral
development programme.

GNIC activities today contribute to
the agricultural sector including
agricultural exports; to transport;
cargo handling and shipping
activities. Indeed, its investment in
financial and human resources to
improve the capacity and capability of
its shipyard has already begun to
contribute to the reduction of costs
'associated with -the -repairs- to
government ferries, cargo boats. and
ancillary craft.

If we needed any vindication of the
GNIC as a Deyelopment model, it
comes from the Report of the United
Nations Inter-Sessional Ad Hoc
Working Group on Industry and
Sustainable Development in 1998,
three years after the formation of the
GNIC. Here are three excerpts"

1. "Poverty eradication is
central to sustainable development
strategies. and industry has a ke" rol'
to play in this respect. Sustainable
industrial policy encompasses a
variety of interrelated economic,
social and environmental ol?jectives,
including the encouragement of an
open, competitive economy, the
creation of productive employment inl
order to provide sustained increases

IJn household income and social
development, and ,. ... ...the
natural environment through the
ct/l ici in o/'resources".

2. "In order to achieve the
objectives of sustainable
development. Governments need to
integrate economic. social and
environmental concerns into their
policy and regulatory frieamlworks,
and industll needs to pIromote
sustainable development through
sustainable consumption aind
production and responsible
entrepreneurship). in accordance with
country -. .. 'o. conditions ".

3. Go ver nments and
industry must work together to
develop policies to ensure that
.'1 .'. . !< is not too
costly or ..'. ,i..' to achieve for
companies in developing countries
and fbr small and medium-sized

Evidently, with the GNIC initiative,
Guyana is .on a track, acknowledged
by the international community as
having the potential for sustainability.

In conveying the greetings of
Government of Guyana i,.. I.: L. NIC"
on .its 10th inii,. ci .i : c
icklnowledge that.'in i du-iii l
development terms, 10 years falls
somewhere .between infancy, and:
adolescence. OC' i ilhC l 1 .Ii ...
the Coi ;r.iii' will benefit from:
lesson i.:, r..- it moves towards-
maturity. But, the way ahead holds
major challenges, especially, given
the new global environment, where
preferential treatment for developing

countries is a thing of the past, and
where we are all expected to compete
equally, on what is clearly an uneven
playing field.

The GNIC's marketing, and delivery
of products and services within
Guyana, is already meeting with
customer satisfaction. Its initiatives
within the Caribbean region portend
well. for opportunities presented by
the CARICOM Single Market: that
single economic space. which
member countries of the. Caribbean
Community make a reality -from I
January 2006.

GNIGC the Government.and People of
Guyana wish you well, and are
confident of your place in Guyana's
emergence as a regional and
hemispheric Centre of excellence.

Chairman's Message

Glen Khan
I am indeed honoured to present to "
you our Shareholders, Customers and
the Public in general, a synopsis of the
performance of Guyana National
Industrial Company Incorporated
over the last ten (10) years, as well as
our strategic direction.

Firstl,. despite the accepted norm
:that the objectives of Private
"Entrepreneurs normally are
: diametrically opposed to Trade
:Uniions and Workers in any business
Environment, the .corporate and
capital structure of GNIC defies this
.myth in that it brings together the
major stakeholders referred to above.
This unique ownership structure has
'in fact forced us to utilizeingenious
ways to resolve the critical
managerial, organizational and
operational matters during this crucial
period of our existence.

Secondly, we have had to fashion an
appropriate industrial relations
climate, prioritizing continuous
training and development
programmes at all levels to inculcate
the required attitudinal and cultural
reorientation of the work force.

Thirdly, the absence of a buoyant
capital market in Guyana did and
continues to pose some problems in
garnering the necessary financial
resources to fund our investment and
capitalization needs. This, however
have been met particularly '\ia the
establishment t of specific
relationships with financial
institutions both locally and outside of

Fourthly, our overall operating and
financial performance can be
considered as thir even though these
did not meet all of the expectations

Our contribution to the development
of technical skills through our
Apprenticeship and Trainee
Programmes continues to make an
impact on the National Skills
deficiency Syndrome. As a national
development company, we provide
critical support services to the
following sectors Mining., Sugar,
Forestry. Maritime .Transportation,

Manufacturing Industries.. Our
contribution to Sports and Culture is
now publicly acclaimed in that the
GNIC has now become a nursery for

c l, : I> I r lllJ l. 'I. ..', l I,. I

Fifthly, we must express our sincere
thanks to the Government for the
patience and the understanding
displayed, but more particularly for
the positive steps taken to resolve the
myriad of issues which have emerged
following the signing of the initial
agreements, and in this regard, special
words of appreciation must be
extended both to the Government and
more in particular to His Excellency
the President and the Prime Minister
for their timely -and constructive
interventions which had a tremendous
impact on the success of the company
to date.


The strategic direction which GNIC
intends to pursue is as follows:

I.. *'~~'

1) Wharf Development and
Transportation Logistics

We intend to make our
wharf facilities the best in Port
Georgetown. and we have already
entered 'into Terminal Operations
Agreements with Tropical and
CMA'CGM. two of the largest
shipping companies serving the
Caribbean markets from outside the
region. We are also positioning
ourselves for substantial potential
transportation and logistical
opportunities, which are likely to
emerge with the development of the
Guyana-Brazil road network.

2) Shipyard Development
and Maritime Engineering Services

The Shipyard, in addition to
servicing the coastal vessels and
ferries, barges and pontoons, is being
geared to build and repair a fleet of
barges and other multi purpose
vessels to support developments in
the interior and intra-Caribbean trade-

3) Manufacturing and
Engineering Services

It is the intention to
rehabilitate our existing workshops so
as to better respond to the needs of the
sectors- Also relationships have,
.already been. established with
offshore based companies in order to
pursue these initiatives, either as
agents and/orjoint venture partners.

4) Agency Representation,
Project Management and
Co n-s traction .
Engineering Services

Given our range of
workshop facilities and the reservoir
of skills and professionals, it is
proposed to aggressively pursue
project management opportunities in
the engineering and construction
sectors. This would also ensure not
only sustenance, but substantial
increases in the range and proficiency
four labour force.

On behalf of the. Board of Directors
and Management, 1 wish to record my
grailtude to our Workers who have not
only worked diligently, but have been
and continue to make sacrifices in
order to ensure the continued viability
of the company. To our many
customers and suppliers, I thank you
for your support during these
formative years and hope that our
business relationship will continue to
flourish in the ensuing years as we
move close towards the realization of
our vision "Leaders in the Industry

of job security and a reliable service
to its employees.

This was not an easy task for any
company but GNIC is not just any
company; it is the only one of its kind
whose ownership comprises workers,
management and the private sector.
Because of this uniqueness -and the
full participation of all its workers the
GNIC has overcome most of its
challenges and is on the road to
success. This unique company,
having established itself as a leader in
the engineering sector of this country
has now ventured into different areas
of operation. It did not stood rigidly
to its engineering tradition of the past,
rather has now gone into bulk
transporting; currently of cement and
with its influence caused to unfold a
joint partnership between itself and
Trinidad Cement Limited,/that led to
the construction ofa Cement Bagging
Plant facility in its compound.

The company has over. the years
contributed significantly to the
development thrust of this, our
beloved country. and has debunked
the views of many who predicted that

Clyde Butts has been coaching the
GNIC cricket team for a decade now.
His introduction was as a result of the
Sports Club Manager, Mr. Ramgobin
Ramkissoon. Also-influential in his
decision was Mr. Toby Lawrence, a
former employee of the company.

At the time Clyde was playing a match
against the then GUYNEC and he was
asked for a solution to a higher
standard of play by Mr. Ramkissoon.
He jokingly suggested that they
needed somebody with a "bit more
experience at a higher level". The rest
is sporting history at GNIC.

"'There is no doubt that GNIC has
been the most consistent club ;n
Gcorgetown and Deimerara over 'he
vears", said Burts. The team has nev er
failed to reach ihe finals and mani
times come out victorious. Cups vied
for and won include the Carib Beer
Cup and the Gaftors Cup. GNIC has
always been number one or two, never
lower, a great track record for any
sporting team, especially in- the-
uncertain game of cricket with all its
glorious uncertainties.

In terms of National competition the
Banks Premium Trophy GNIC has

Competed in the fin.ib and over the'
years has only been beaten on two

As a result of these successes at the
First Diision level quite a few GNIC
players, have risen to the National
level, playing for Guyana. These
include -young Ryan Griffith, who still
plays for his country, Kevin Basil and
Kwesion Nedd. A few others almost,
made it to this level, proving the
standards and competitiveness of the
team players.

Butts added, "'We've got quite a good
crop of youngsters and they are
handling themselves well, so I think
the future looks good and certainly, if
one looks back the only liin, one
would find disappointing is that we
haven't produced a cricketer who has
gone all the way to the top playing
for the West Indies".

Some would add that, maybe, the
CGNIC team could beat even the \Vest
Indies these days.

But cricket is not the only sport
enjoyed by GNIC employees. A visit
to the Sports Club would find several
persons engaged-in dominoes, cards,
or even chess.

This facility receives the laull support
of the GNIC management and the
cameraderie and free-flowing spirit
(anid "spirits") augur- well for the
relationship of employees at all levels.

One employee opined that any
organization which does not have a
sports club is "not working for". For
T.Tis- reason there is- definitely an
important place for club activities and
employees are encouraged to utilize
the facility as often as possible.

do it in front of your
home crowd but it's special
with Allan Border being an
Australian. The reception
this morning was excellent
and it's really touching to
be appreciated by a coun-
try I've had great battles
with throughout my. ca-
Before play Lara said the
record was "testimony to the
longevity I've had in the
game". "I've had my ups and
downs but I've stuck it out,"
he told Nine. "And at 36 I'm
looking forward to passing
Lara had watched Border
add to his tally as a young-
ster at Queen's Park Oval in
his native Trinidad and was
impressed with his style of
play. "I've seen him defy the
West Indies fast bowlers and
I enjoyed watching him," he
said. The world has enjoyed
watching Lara.
Border, who missed the
innings to watch his son in
an under-10s match, was
quick to pay tribute to his
successor and said Lara was
a "very worthy" record
holder. "I played against
Brian when he made his cen-
tury in Sydney in the season
of 1992-93 and I would rank
him-as one of the best three
batsmen in the world," Bor-
der said. "I have had the plea-
sure of seeing him play a lot
of cricket and there is no
doubt he is a genuine genius.
I am sure I am not the only
Australian who is pleased to
see him hold this record."
Border's moment of
history was sealed on Feb-
ruary 25, 1993 in
Christchurch when he hit
Dipak Patel for a boundary
as his team-mates huddled
in the dressing-room un-
der blankets. Border fell
12 runs short of a century
and Lara was also disap-
pointed when he stepped
away to McGrath and lost
his off stump. It was a mi-
nor blemish and Novem-
ber 26, 2005 will always be
Lara's day to treasure.

1000 days since you sailed away ,;
The memories luminous and dazzling as you always were
We think of you, dream of you and there you are -
Your body left us. you never did and in our hearts you live.
Sometimes we cry, we wail and bemoan ourloss |
But we hear youI voice. we see with your eyes
We remember your touch, your ready smile, your serenity
You were a son, a father, a brother, uncle, you bonded us.
You watch over us, of that we are sure
When we dnve, when we fly, when we sail we can feel you near
In Heaven and Earth, we are bonded together by your love.
There are no regrets, you enjoyed life, you were always happy
Everyday you are not here, we think of a memory you would
have made
We can never truly say goodbye, our hearts wouldn't let us
We will meet again, but until then we miss and love you.
Missed by his loving mom, sisters, brothers, daughters

Improved conditions at Tucville for Fruta's KO semis tonight


By Allan La Rose

"WE are going to improve the
lights and security, defi-
nitely." These were the prom-
ising words of Marion Cole,
secretary of the Conquerors
"We also intend to cordon off
the players and officials area where
it will be very restricted. In terms
of security we have engaged the
services of the City Constabulary
and seating will be available for
spectators, so we expect everything
to be well orderly." Cole told
Chronicle Sport on the eve of
today's semi-finals.
From a field of sixteen it has
now- come down to the final four
as they battle, today, for a place in
next Friday's final, worth half a mil-
lion dollars to the winners. Among
the remaining teams are the defend-
ing champion Cari Air Western Ti-
gers who will confront Alpha

United in the feature game of
today's triple-header at the Tucville
Kicking off the action
this afternoon at 16:00 h will
be an Under-16 affair be-
tween Conquerors and
Buxton, to be followed by the
first semi-final at 18:00 h
when Pele FC and Topp XX
of Linden match skills.
On their way to the semis Pele
came from behind on both occa-
sions to score 2-1 wins over Fla-
mingo and the Army while Topp
XX defeated Santos 3-2 and
Camptown 2-1. Already with the
President's Cup in this year's col-
lection the South Georgetown
Ballweavers will be aiming to do
what two other City teams failed
to do and that is to stop the 'Pride
of Linden'.
The Collie Hercules-led
Topp XX must, however, bear
in mind that the two sides

they got past were both GFL's
division one sides and now
the real test comes against a
Pele unit, bubbling with con-
fidence after going. nine

games undefeated. In addi-
tion to the two victories in the
current Fruta KO tourna-

ment, Pele registered 4 wins
and three draws to be the
only unbeaten team in the
second round of the just con-
cluded GFL's Premiership.
The youthful Pele will once
again be without their captain
Shawn 'Fatso' Bishop who is
presently plying his skills in
Trinidad and Tobago. His
midfield presence will surely be
missed, though the talented
Travis 'Zarro' Grant has as-
sumed the central midfield po-
sition with confidence.
The gold shirts will also
welcome the return from in-
jury of central defender De-
von Edinboro. The vice-cap-
tain to Bishop will now take
over the captaincy as he teams
up in the middle with the
rock-solid Sheik Kamal,
while the citadel will be pro-
tected by the ever-improving
teenager Shem Arthur.

National midfielder Dirk Ar-
cher and the dreadlocked Troy
Kellman will also be key com-
ponents in creating the goal-
scoring opportunities for the
goal-hungry Konata 'Natta'
Mannings and the evergreen
Norris 'Fudgie' Carter in attack.
On the other half of the field
player/coach Hercules says his
squad is confident and ready for the
challenge. We are fully prepared and
relish the challenge to come to the
City and play. I think the pressure
is on Pele; we have nothing to lose."
the former national captain told
Chronicle Sport via the telephone
Topp XX's attack will be
centred on John 'Wayne' Milo
and the speedy dreadlocked
Romain Haynes with Hercules
teaming up with Sheldon Noel,
Quacy Johnson and Shavane
Seaforth in midfield. The de-
fence will be marshalled by

Both sides play attacking
and entertaining football so ex-
pect a quality game that could
go all the way into the dreaded
penalty kicks. The same could
be said of the second semifinal
which brings together the Cup
holders Western Tigers and Cup
dreamers AlphaUTJnited.
After two games that went
into penalty shoot-outs, the first
prematurely blown off, the Tigers
advanced to the last four and, no
doubt, will want to show that they
not only belong to the final four but
also can hold the title that all are
vying for.
Their opponents while fin-
ishing second in the GFL's
Premiership also qualified for
the semis through a penalty
shoot-out with Amelia's Ward,
and since they humbled the Ti-

Several flaws at 45th National Schools

Track and Field championships

By Isaiah Chappelle

COMPLIMENTS go out for
the general administration
of the 45th Annual National
Schools Track & Field,

curity was flawed and indi-
vidual districts fell from
Perhaps the biggest blow to
the Guyana Teachers Union.

with each district being respon-
sible for their charges. Lunch for
some districts arrived after 16:00

Another flaw was districts'
adhering to their colours. Only
District 5 (West Berbice), Dis-
trict 9 (Rupununi), District 7
(Cuyuni/Mazaruni) and District
4 (East Coast Demerara) stead-

colours, while the others, par-
ticularly the Georgetown ath-

they were allowed to enter the

support of the meet by schools
in the district. Each day, the
stands were almost empty
with just a sprinkling of spec-
tators. Not even schoolchil-
dren were out in numbers,
and that did not improve
much on the final day, per-
haps a reflection of the edu-
cation authorities in the area.
Competition was keen
throughout the meet, even in the
heats, but more so in the dis-
tance races in which the
Rupununi athletes wowed the
crowd. Therefore, there was
never a dull moment, but sadly
not many people were there to
enjoy such good competition.
Alcohol beer and stout -
was sold in bottles in the venue,
contrary to the rules of the In-
ternational Association of Ath-
letics Federations (IAAF), al-
though the security personnel
inspected vehicles and scanned
persons with electronic devices.
A woman police sergeant
was shown a man selling stout
in glass bottles near the main
pavilion and she simply put her
head straight and walked past
the itinerant vendor.
What was most shocking
was to observe some persons in

A fight broke out in one of
the stands, a repeat of the 2000
staging at the very venue. A
source close to GUYSUCO said
that the company was reluctant
to grant the GTU the use of the
centre because of what occurred
that time.
Rehearsal for the opening
ceremony was clearly lacking
and there were no marks for the
districts to assemble after the
march past which took place
without a band. The little danc-
ers suffered a similar fate as
they evidently did not rehearse
at the venue for their presenta-
tion; which turned out to be a
beautiful piece.
A good move was to have
a separate public address
system to get the athletes on
the track and another to feed
the public with information
related only to the races. One
announcer now and again
slipped and dealt with house-
keeping matters for which a
runner could have been use4.
Commendably, however,
as championship issues con-
fronted Singh, he and his
secretariat dealt with them
with calm professionalism
and a meet with keen compe-
tition unfolded over four

Richards brilliant 127 gives Barbados

first innings

By Vemen Walter at Everest
(In association with J.
Asrafally (Papie) Supermarket,
Permaul's Snackette and
AnandK. Matadeen Grocery &
Sunshine Supermarket)

A MASTERFUL 127 from 29-
year-old opening batsman
Dale Richards enabled Bar-
bados to take control against
Guyana at the end of
yesterday's second day in
their opening round of the
2005/2006 Carib Beer
Cricket Series four-day
cricket match being played at
the Everest Cricket Club
Barbados, responding to
Guyana's first innings total of

241 made in their first innings,
closed the day on 259 for five,
a lead of 18, going into today's
third day with five wickets re-
It was a day that totally be-
longed to the right-handed
Richards. He displayed tremen-
dous batsmanship in chalking up
his maiden first-class hundred
and delighted the sprinkling of
spectators with some attractive
batting in a knock that ended six
minutes before the close and
lasted 353 minutes, 286 deliver-
ies and contained twelve fours
and two sixes.
Skipper Ryan Hinds, seek-
ing a recall to the West Indies
team, was also in good form
scoring a fluent 57 (90 minutes,

84 balls .and six fours).
Alcindo Holder and
nightwatchman Sulieman Benn
are the men unbeaten on 5 and
0 respectively.
Resuming on their overnight


score of 2 for no loss with both
Richards and Blackman still to
get off the mark, Barbados bat-
ted through the entire morning
session without much bother,
going into lunch on 78 without
Richards, playing in his

eleventh first-class match,
was in sight of a half-century
on 47 and by that time had al-
ready hit six fours while the
more subdued Blackman was
on 27.
The openers mixed solid
defence with timely aggression,
making full use of a perfect bat-
ting surface on another day
blessed with glorious sunshine,
in bringing up Barbados' 50 in
92 minutes off 24.4 overs.
Guyana delivered 34 overs
in the session, using five
bowlers, including three spin-
ners, all of whom failed to make
any significant impact on the
Barbadian batsmen.
After the interval, Guyana
skipper Reon King, who to-
gether with fellow fast bowler
Esaun Crandon bowled all
through the first hour of the
day's play, brought himself back
from the northern end and im-
mediately had success when
Blackman, failing to add to his
lunchtime score, drove at a wide
delivery and was caught behind
by wicketkeeper Derwin Chris-
He had gone off the sec-

ond ball of the first over with
just a single run added to the
score, having batted for 124
minutes, facing 91balls and
reaching the boundary twice.

Richards brought up his
fifty (129 minutes, 126 balls
and seven fours) with a savage
pull for four off leg-spinner
Mahendra Nagamootoo, wide of
long off shortly thereafter, and
along with new batsman Kurt
Wilkinson saw the Barbados -

Eagles United drafted into

K&S football championship

... Rupununi team pulls out

By Isaiah Chappelle

STANDBY Eagles United
who appeared in all but one
Christmas Football Festival
were drafted into the 16th
annual championship, staged
by the Kashif & Shanghai
Organisation (K&S), and
Splashmin's came on board
as a sponsor. .
During the release of fix-
tures at Thirst Park, yesterday,
K&S Director Kashif
Muhammed announced that
hinterland team Rupununi had
pulled out of the football ex-
travaganza and Eagles United
filled their place.
Muhammed disclosed that the
Rupununi side decided against par-
ticipating because of insufficient
preparation, and with the entry of
Eagles, both Linden and
Georgetown now have equal num-
ber teams six each.
But there is a possibility
that Georgetown could still have
more teams than the
tournament's home-based Lin-
den, because Bartica were now
considering whether or not to
participate. ,
The K&S, director ex-
plained that 'the organizers
could not istnd the boat cost
from Bartica, which was prov-

ing to be high because of the
increase in-fuel prices. The
interior town team would
have to carry that cost, but the
organizers will take care of
expenses from Parika.
Should Bartica pull out,
then another Georgetown team
would be drafted in, making it
again the first time that more
city teams than Linden teams
would be in the tournament.
Defending champions Fruta
Conquerors will not take the
field until the third play day,
coming up against Pouderoyen
at the GFC ground, Bourda, on

arm spinner Neil McGarrell in-

mid off, ending a 63-run second-

Barbados on 142.
Richards soon reached his
century in the final over before
tea when he simply tucked off-
spinner Travis Dowlin behind
square for a single.
His coveted landmark was
decorated with ten l0Ieli fours

made hay while the sun
shone after the break in an
entertaining 88-run stand,

made the Guyanese bowling
look very ordinary.
Barbados' 200 was quickly
on the board in 278 minutes and

tling up another first class half-
century (54 balls, 87 minutes,
five fours), shortly after, the
batting side were totally in com-
mand of the proceedings.
King ended Hinds' positive and
mature knock when the West In-
dian player edged one that left him
on its way to the keeper. It was then
230 for three.

C ARA Lodge has ex
panded to cope with
its growing business
' but it is. not giving up the
.rich culture and heritage it
inherited with the building
and site on Quamina Street,
And so, with the opening of
.tie Woodbine wing on the
evening of November 17 last, it
blended the old with the new.
''"The old Cara Lodge had 14
rooms and a restaurant and as
time passed by, we realized that
.we were losing business oppor-
tunities", General Manager
.,'Shaun McGrath explained last
Week. .
"Since there is now a bigger
nimarket for business conferences,
itrwas decided that Cara Lodge
needed expansion."
Mr McGrath noted that it
took the owners and the man-
agement of the hotel four years
to complete the extension in or-
der to maintain the interest of
the old building and to uphold
the heritage of the grand house..
The new wing consists of
35 self-contained rooms with
internet access, a conference
room which can hold about 90
people at the same time, a room


for physically disabled persons,
a restaurant and the new
'Mango Tree Bar'.
In keeping with the heritage
of the building that houses Cara
Lodge, the bar was named the
'Mango Tree Bar' because a 60-
year-old mango tree stands
fruitfully tall in the centre of the
open atmospheric bar.
McGrath said cutting down
the tree would have shattered
the rich heritage of the house and
so the bar was built around it
to preserve the culture and heri-
tage of Cara Lodge Hotel.
With the expansion, the ho-
tel can now accommodate more
than 140 persons, leaving out
the now refurbished 12 rooms
in the other section of the ho-
tel. The cost for staying at Cara
Lodge is US$125 plus tax per
McGrath said they are fully
booked for the next two weeks and
this was without advertisements.
The Woodbine House was
built in the 1840's and originally
consisted of two houses.
It began operating as a ho-
tel in February 1996 when the
name Cara Lodge was added but
with the agreement that the cul-
ture and heritage of Woodbine

House must remain alive,
McGrath said.
The Woodbine House is
owned by Heritage Incorporated
which is the Taitt family and
Cara Lodge operates the hotel
on behalf of the family.
The Taitts were the last
family to live at the house. It
carries a history that today
makes it a unique hotel which
offers reminiscences of the past
and all the amenities of today.
Mr Michael Gilkes, a
former resident of the house and
renowned playwright, is staying
at the hotel to complete writing

- FJ .. -

a play about the house expected
to be released in early January
He said: "A new wing has
been added to the old Wood-
bine House. That reminds me
of the childhood image that I
had of the house when I lived
here with my cousins, the
Taitts, as a large, fluffy bird
sitting on her eggs. We children
were the eggs.
"We ran out to play all
day and returned at night to
the soft warmth and welcom-
ing arms of Woodbine
House. The house nourished

:the hub of cultural and connmu-
nity activity. The Woodbine
clubs for young people, the
Dorcas. Society, the Philhar-
monic orchestra, the Woodbine
choir, were all founded by Aunt
Dorothy Taitt. These had a last-
ing impact on hundreds of
young people.
"A tradition of excel-
lence, of musical and cultural
awareness and of the free ex-

tion today as the living gallery

A RULING by the Guyana
Court of Appeal in 1976 made
it clear that a person who
snatched property from an-
other and ran away with it
had committed larceny from
the person and not robbery
with violence.
This ruling resulted from an
appeal brought by Colin
Armstrong and his co-defendant
Leslie Johnson who were con-.

tion, when the offence conmmit-
ted was larceny from the per-
The offence was committed
on August 8, 1973. After con-

Johnson was sentenced to
imprisonment for a period of 4
years and ordered to receive a

The Court of Appeal sub-
stituted a 'larceny from the per-
son' conviction for the robbery.
Armstrong benefitted from a
reduced sentence.
The facts of the case dis-
closed that the two appellants
were indicted at the Criminal
Assizes for robbery with aggra-
vation and were both found
guilty of that offence.
The particulars of the of-
fence were that they being to-
gether; robbed one Charles
Sykes of $37 in money.
According to the evidence,
while Johnson was holding on
to Sykes' hand asking him for
a 'raise' (which Sykes under-
stood to mean he was being
asked for a 'tip') Armstrong
approached Sykes from behind,
snatched at, and ripped off the
left breast pocket of his shirt
which contained $37, running
off with both the shirt pocket
and the money..
The trial judge in his charge
to the jury explained that if
they came to the conclusion
that robbery was done by
Armstrong alone, then the case
would be "just plain robbery",
that is, simple robbery, and that
they would, in that event, have
to acquit Johnson. Johnson, as
was explained earlier, was



the Court of Appeal, on the
ground that no proper founda-
tion had been laid for the recep-
tion in evidence of a confession
statement he was alleged to
have given to a policeman con-
cerning the crime.
Thereafter, the court re-
served for a further argument
the question whether, on the
facts and on the law, a verdict
of robbery with violence, rob-
bery simpliciter, or larceny from
the person was the appropriate
one to record against the appel-
lant, Armstrong, in the circum-

marriage ceremony to wife
Kema; the younger four were
also deemed to be married to her,
but two have since broken away
and remarried.
The youngest two. one of
whom is only 17. are currently

studying in Kathmandu and it is
uncertain whether they will re-
join the household.
Tsering says one reason for
the two brothers breaking away
was that they were forced to
sell their livestock and had to
move further away for work.
This happened when new
laws barred them from access to
previously communal grazing
"Once the sheep were sold
they had nothing to do all they
did was sit at home and eat,"
says Kema, laughing a little.
She says such change has
also arisen from people having
a wider choice of jobs and edu-
Neither Kema nor Tsering
begrudges the two brothers their
new separate lifestyles.
But Tsering is hurt by
many Hindus' attitude to poly-
andry. "My brothers' friends
tease them that the tradition is
old-fashioned," he says.
Villagers were at first highly
reluctant to talk to the BBC,
saying that in the recent past
journalists have visited this
community from Kathmandu
and abroad and sought to ridi-
cule the custom.
Kema also says that where
there is a big age spread among
the brothers, family relations
can be ambiguous. She says the
two youngest ones feel more
like younger brothers to her than
Under pressure
In Simikot, a couple of val-
leys away, there are numerous
people who have broken away
from polyandrous arrangements
Mutup Lama, 41, a porter
and farmer, did so mainly be-
cause of age. He and his older
brother originally shared a wife
in a village, but she was the
same age as his brother 14
years older than Mutup.
After coming to Simikot
and finding a new wife, he aban-

doned all his land and animal
rights, he says.
"We're happy and we have
two children." he says, but adds
that this monogamous life is
more of a struggle financially.
This age factor is not al-
ways a problem.
A 22-year-old man in

Barauntse, Chakka Lama,
told the BBC he was abso-
lutely committed to the wife,
10 years older, whom he
shares with his one younger
and two older brothers, even
though he cannot even re-
member the marriage cer-
But polyandry is definitely
under pressure. This is because
of not only economics and edu-
cation but also the simple
spread of more romanticised
ideas of marriage.
Not only that.- there have
been reports of Maoist rebels,
who are powerful in this area,
speaking out stridently against
the system. They have also re-
cruited some husbands to their
"I think that within 10 or

15 years the system will com-
pletely disappear," says one

villager sadly. (Charles

seen to have or allowed to be
eroded over decades. The
point however is whether
such qualities would be help-
ful to our lives in general
now, and how we can re-pos-
sess those benefits and pro-
ductive attitudes. On the
other hand in many areas
such as health, housing,
labour laws, workers ben-
efits, roads and transporta-
tion, Guyanese are better off
today than decades ago. But
the value and relevance of
Guyaese Nostalgic Culture
should not be judged by
today's gains. What is good
today due to progress, and the
job of governments, is wel-
come. But instead of over-em-
phasizing what already ex-
ists, it is what no longer ex-
ists but is beneficial to us and
which we wish would con-
tinue that concerns Guyanese
Nostaligic Culture.
Like most nations, and all
colonial ones, Guyana's history,
indeed its very foundation, was
laid by heroes, pioneers, and
fearless adventures with both
good and bad human qualities.
But whereas in the capitals of
many other nations dramatic and
imaginative statues can be found
of their local founders, in parks,
avenues, gardens etc, in Guyana
similar statues are absent of its
pioneer founders; names almost

should have a prominent imagi-

Nostalgic Culture seen from a
contemporary perspective is not
guided by racial preferences or
cultural biases, since that view
would deny the complex truths
of historical civilizations, and
subsequently few or no histori-
cal figures would be completely
worthy of giving dignity, pride,
and legitimacy to their nations
and civilization.
Focusing on Guyanese
Nostalgic Culture allows us to
see both the good in the bad and
the bad in the good within
Guyana's past. and therefore
guides us to a more sane, bal-
anced, tolerant, just, and cohe-
sive civilized view of our na-
tional potential today. Fore ex-

achieved by Britain banking its
Caribbean and other colonial as-
sets as one total equity which
led to high stock value. With In-

up of this interdependent collec-

bold innovations, and territorial
jealousies led to the collapse of
federation talks, causing signifi-

today's Caricom is still trying to

SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 27, 2005

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today we'll look at Who
Instruments used to measure weather and A response from last his/h
week's topic "Weather conditions?


Take a look at the instruments above. What are they used for?
o will use these instruments? Who is a meteorologist? What is

The instruments above are used to measure weather.
A wind vane is used to show which direction the wind is blow-
An anemometer is used to measure the speed of wind.
A barometer is used to measure atmospheric pressure.
A thermometer is used to measure temperature
A rain gauge is used to measure rain fall.

A meteorologist is a person who studies and forecasts weather
conditions. He or she collects information of the weather by using
these instruments.

The weather conditions and the way it affect our lives.




Look. at the photo above. What kind of day do you think it
would be? It looks like its going to be a rainy day. If you had to
go school or work what would have you done? No, but if I do go
I must be careful and wear my protective gear, like a coat, a hat
and long boots. Do you think it would be wise to go out and play
in the yard or go and play basketball with your friends, when you
see these weather conditions? No, that would not be wise. Would
you advise mommy to do the laundry on a day like this? No! Is it
wise for a pilot to fly under these weather, conditions? Noq, that
would not be wise. What would you tell a fisher man who is going
out to sea? I suggest you stay a sure the tides are high during,
these, weather conditions. The weather affects the things we do
from 0ne day to another. "

As the days go by the weather changes, as the weather change
people, change or adjust to situations. That is why today some
people can move around in any kind of weather because they have
adjusted them selves to the weather conditions or made prepara-
tions for the coming season. So if we all made preparations for the
predicted weather, we have a better chance in protecting ourselves
against unseen disasters that might follow e.g the flooding of our
streets and houses.

Hello boys and girls,

Over fifteen years ago, Guyana's then president surprised
the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Kuala
Lumpur, by offering to make a great part of our rainforest
covering 360 hectares or two percent of our country, "a gift
'to the world."
The gift, Iwokrama, was made on condition that the in-
ternational community uses its rich and pristine forest as an
international research and development centre. Countries must
be shown how to value and use tropical forests. and .stop the
loss of forest animals and plants.

The project was formally put into operation in 1996. It was
found that our rain forest has a rich growth of plants and animals.
. There are more than 450 species of birds. 206 species of fish, 120
species of amphibians and reptiles, and 105 species of mammals in
the area. Included are jaguars, giant otters, harpy eagles, caimans.
and macaws.

There are Amerindian communities surrounding the site who
now work closely, as field staff, with those who run the Iwokrama.
These Amerindians are said to be the only people who truly know
the forest.

1. In which country is the Iwokrama Rain Forest Programme
set up?

Hello boys and girls, 4.
Welcome to our Mathematics columns. Here we are together W
again teaming up to conquer mathematical concepts and
skills. Today you'll have more worked samples of division =
and multiplication of fractions. Love you.


1). 2 2/11 19/11 = 11/5: TRUE
2). 7 /2 1 2/5 < 4 V2: FALSE
3). 5 3/5 + 2 4/5 > 5: FALSE
4). 17/9 2 2/3 < 1 V: TRUE
5).45/7 + 31/18 < 2: TRUE
Find Out
1). 2 4/9 X 3/11=2/3
2). 6 3/101X 5/9 = 3 V2
3). 7 7/8 *4/9= 3 /2
4). 7 3/5 X 3/5 =4 14/25
5). 3/11 -2 4/9 = 2/3

1). Some number multiplied by 4/9 equals 1 V2:= 3 3/8
2). Some number multiplied-by 5/22 equals 1:= 4 2/5
3). Somd number divided by 6/7 equals 5 4/9:= 4 2/3
4). Some number divided by 5 2/3 equals 6/85:= 2/5
5). 3 6/7nultiplied by some number equals 99/35:= 11/15

It can also be done this way:
6 +117/8 X 24

Please pay attention to statements like: "Write your an-
swer as a proper fraction in lowest terms or mixed number in
lowest terms, or as a whole number. Pay attention to the use

When ybu mUltiply 6 by 2 you get 12. What you are
really doingiis doubling 6.

12 can also be arrived at when you divide 6 by V.

How ca" this be?, Just look at what you really do when
you divide by the fraction 1/2.

6+ 1/2

= 6X2

= 12

Let's get the rule in here. To divide by a fraction you must
upturn that fraction and multiply.

= 24

Here is another.

20 + 1/5

= 20X5
= 100

Work these

1) 12+4/5=

Write your answer as a mixed number in lowest terms or
as a whole number:

2) 25 '/2 3 2/5
S3)52+2 3/5
5) 66 + 12/9
6)3 3/5 2 7/10
7) 9% + 3/7

Working with brackets and fractions:

1. (9/10 of 8/27) + (3/5 X 4/9)

= (9X8 ) + (3X4)
10X27 5X9

= 9-1 X84- + IXL4
"0-, X -Y, 5X9,

= 4/15 + 4/15

= 4- X +5-


Look at it this other way (forithose who can go faster).
You upturn all in the second pair of brackets and multi-
ply. (Remember that the word of should always be taken to
mean multiply in calculations with fractions.)

(9/10 of 8/27) + (3/5 X 4/9)

= (9X8 ) X (5X9)
10X27 3X4
= 91 X8 X 51-X9.
"0-, X 27-7 3, X4,


See what ou will get when you divide 6 by 2.
6+2 =3

If instead you multiply 6 by 2, you will get

So, keep in mind that multiplying and dividing are not the
same processes.

See what answer you get for the problem 6 + 1/2. An-
swer = 12

Remember the rule to go by. Whenever you have to di-
vide a number by a fraction, upturn that fraction and multi-

Fresh food done just right

THERE is a healthy line of burgers with complementary ice coffees and shakes in town.
They are available at JR Burgers, Sandy Babb Street, Kitty and C&F Shopping Plaza, Regent
Street, in Georgetown.
JR can mean just right or it can be initials for keeping the Jad Rahaman family in mind when you
sample the hefty quarter pound meat burgers. Jad Rahaman and his family who once operated Palm
Court Restaurant are now in the burger business.
What makes JR Burgers sizzle is their freshness. Within five minutes of an order you can munch
down the gourmet item, stacked with chicken, beef or vegetarian chunks, and delectable garnishes.
Although the service is quick, Mr. Rahaman recently told us over ice tea, "We pride ourselves on
being fresh food and not fast food"
The burger is the signature item of JR Burgers. The creamy ice coffee, which comes in nine flavours,
is also a taste bud sensation.
Hot coffee and cream is traditional, even mundane. Imagine thick cold coffee, richly topped with
cream. Ah... novel and exciting indeed. Four flavours of milkshakes are also on the menu, along with
spicy wings, fries and Jamaican patties.
JR Burgers began firing, as a virtual unknown, nearly two years ago on a mobile unit on the
Georgetown seawall. The burgers became popular with joggers and people travelling along the Rupert
Craig Highway.
Now, the mobile equipment is reserved for special events as the business now buzzes at its two
permanent locations in response to increased demand.
"We intend to maintain very high standards and we'll be running a very unusual competition in
time for the Christmas season," Mr. Rahaman promised.
JR Burgers opens Monday to Saturday, 11:00 hrs. to 23:00 hrs., and Sunday, 16:00 hrs. to
23:00 hrs. Delivery service is available, just call 226-6614. (Stacey Bess)

and most historic buildings, is rated a
national monument by the National
Trust of Guyana, and, if all goes well, is soon
to become a World Heritage Site as part of

Historic Georgetown.
She is the famous 'Red.
House', custodian of some of the
most intimate and treasured of
secrets of some of the most dis-
tinguished and influential of men
and women to have traversed
this land from colonial secre-
taries, said to be equal in stature
to the governor and responsible
for the day to day running of the
government back in the old co-
lonial days; to former Speaker of

the House, the late Sir Eustace
Woolford- and most renowned of
all its occupants, the late Dr
Cheddi Jagan, whom it is alleged
deliberately chose to live there
because its colour was reflective
of his Communist ideals.
Not so, says his widow and
former President, Mrs Janet
"I don't think there was
anything else available at the

shouldn't continue to live where

'been about six or so."
Asked what it was like liv-
ing there as a young mother and
housewife, Mrs Jagan, a vet-

she didn't think the latter term
rightly applied to her since most
of her time was spent at 'Free-

Court rules that snatc

(From page VI )
bery a conviction for larceny
from the person in relation to
Senior counsel Peter Britton
represented the appellants while*
Mr. Nandram Kissoon, Senior
State Counsel, (now a Justice of.
Appeal) appeared for the State.
Justice of Appeal' Crane'
who delivered the Judgment
said, "We were compelled to al-
low Johnson's appeal on the
ground that no proper founda-
tion had been laid for the recep-
tion in evidence of a confession.
statement he is alleged to have
given to a policeman concerning
the crime.
Thereafter, we reserved for
further argument the question
whether, on the facts and on the.
law, a verdict of robbery with
violence, simple robbery or lar-
ceny from the person was the
appropriate one to record
against Armstrong in the circum-
stances .
Crane J.A. added, "Briefly the
role played by Armstrong as nar-
rated by the victim Sykes and a

witness to the crime, is that while
Johnson was holding on t -Sykes

Sykes understood to mean he.was.
being asked for a tip; .Armstrong
approached from behind and with
hand extended oter Sykes left

off the left breast pocket, of his shirt
in which %%as contained the sum'.
of $37. running o0l with both shin
pocket and the money it contained.
"In view of Johnson' ac-
quittal as aforesaid and the
consequent impossibility of
our arriving at a positive con-
clusion that there was a joint
enterprise between the two
men, that is, that they acted
in concert, the problem is: Is
a conviction for robbery sim-
pliciter (as the trial judge
thought), or one of larceny
from the person, the proper
offence to be substituted in
place of the jury's verdict of
guilty of robbery with aggra-
vation," Crane questioned.
'Insofar as robbery with vio-
lence is concerned, I think we can
rule that out fromour consideration
since a conviction for that offence

could only be sustained if 'personal
violence' \ias used against Sykes.
and the facts are not capable of
supporting such an. offence'; Jus-
tice of Appeal Crane declared.
Pointing out that the ques-,
lion was always one of degree
Justice Crane explained '"%hen,:
however, force 'does' ihivolve
violence to the person the of-
fence committed is robbery'

the case where a thief snatched
a lady's earring in order to get

ceeded in tearing it away from
the lobe of her ear to which it
was attached, so that it lodged
in the curls of the hair, it was
held by 12 judges that the ac-
cused was rightly convicted of
robbery with violence.
"But mere snatching of
money or property from the
person is generally not suf-
ficient force to constitute
robbery. A sudden snatch is
not robbery unless accompa-
nied by resistance from the
victim to keep the property.

The Environment and T- I
Re ligious Be lief s

Re(i0si'Ous Beiioefs .-..^i

T HIS week we will look
at the connection be
tween religious beliefs
and the environment. Think
about your religious beliefs.
Are you a Christian, Hindu or
Muslim? Can you link your
beliefs to the environment?
Every religion has an envi-
ronmental component. In other
words, in every religion, nature
is viewed as valuable. Therefore,
leaders and governments have
decided to use religious beliefs
to help protect the environment,
a strategy that has been quite
Today's article will show the
connection between the respec-
tive religious beliefs and the en-
vironment. It will also focus on
how these respective beliefs
have been successful in promot-
ing environmental protection.

Christians believe that the
whole of creation is God's handi-
work and it belongs to Him.
"The earth is the Lord's and
all that is in it." Psalms 24:1
When God created the earth,
He established a, covenant with

humanity. He gave mankind the
responsibility of taking care of
Christians therefore see
themselves as stewards. The
word steward comes from the
Greek words for house and man-
ager. Taken literally a steward
means manager of God's house-
hold. According to the Bible hu-
mans are a part of nature. The
Bibles says:
"The Lord God formed man
from the dust of the ground..."
Genesis 2:7
The Bible also speaks
against cruelty to animals, if an
animal has collapsed under a load
one has a duty to help it.
Christianity and Environ-
mental Protection
Some Churches are devel
oping techniques to in-
corporate environmental con-
cerns into church activities.
Moreover, several churches are
conducting environmental aware-
ness programmes and have de-
veloped declarations stating the
position they hold with respect
to the environment.
The Hindu View of Nature
In Hinduism, there is an ab-
solute god. Besides having su-
premacy over all creatures, he
can take the form of any crea-.

ture when he wishes. Hence, to
Hindus all creation is sacred.
F or Hindus nature is part
of god, humans animals
and even non-living items e.g.
water and soil. The Absolute
One is in control and he deter-
mines when an animal should die
and when one should be born.
Hindus greatly respect ani-
mals. This is so because Hindus
believe that the Supreme Being
was himself incarnated into the
form of various species. Some
of these incarnations included a
fish, a tortoise and a boar.

The town of Vrindavan, lo-
cated in India is one of the most
sacred sites in all of Hinduism.
According to Hindu beliefs, Lord
Krishna lived in Vrindavan. Due
to its great religious significance
the town has become a pilgrim-
age center for Hindus. But the
crush of people coupled with the
growing population started to
affect the town in a negative
manner. The water supply be-
gan to dwindle. The Yamuna
River was heavily polluted with
industrial wastes. Traffic in-
creased and large portions of for-

ests began to disappear.
Krishna devotees realized
that there was a need for reme-
dial action, so they formed a
movement. To generate support
they used the following quote:
"one who cares for Krishna
cares for his land." Community
members were involved in the
planting of over 2000 trees and
shrubs of great religious signifi-
cance. Plant nurseries were cre-
ated and two parks were con-
Next was the problem of
sewage disposal.
Vrindavan had a sewage system.
but the main pipe line was never
constructed. As a result, sewage
flowed into streets and settled
in the lower areas, posing a pos-
sible health threat. Therefore,
two suggestions were made:
firstly, it was recommended that
since the traditional method of
recycling waste into fertilizer
(composting) worked in the past,
then it should be implemented
once again. Secondly, the use of
latrines also worked in the past,
so this method was also recom-
mended to be implemented.
Today, this restoration
project has been completed but
it would not be sufficient to clean
up and not put into effect mea-

sures to prevent a repeat of the
past. Therefore, in each of
* Vrindavan's thirty-five schools
environmental education is
taught with emphasis on the link
between the Hindu faith and na-

Islam teaches that the earth
and all creatures were created by
Allah. Every creature has a
unique function and although
they serve humanity, this is not
the only reason for their exist-
ence. Creation, according to the
Qu'ran tells of Allah's awesome
power and continuously praises
"The seven heavens and the
earth and all that is therein
praise Him." Qu'ran 17:4
Therefore to protect and
take care for creation implies that
one has great respect for the Cre-

Since the time of the
Prophet Mohammed to now
the concept of Hima, has ex-
isted. It involves the setting
aside of areas not to be devel-

oped and whose protection
somehow improves the wel-
fare of the lesser class of
people. This is practiced
greatly in Saudi Arabia. Across
the Middle East several Mus-
lim environmental
organizations have been
formed. These organizations
seek to link Islamic teachings
with development policies
and environmental protection.
Guyana can be considered
a religious country. All three
major religions practiced es-
pouse the close relation of God
and the environment. If we as
a people recognize that we
serve our religion and God by
positive actions to the envi-
ronment surely we can
achieve the goal of environ-
mental conservation.

The Dentist Advises



IT SEEMS that root canal
treatment is one of the mys-
teries of dentistry from the
point of view of the average
person. There are two main
social impressions about root
canal treatment presently ex-
isting. In the first place
people believe that it is the
dental procedure most fa-
mous for pain and suffering.
Then, its generally known to
be relatively very expensive
because only a tooth is saved,
after all, for the price paid.
Now lets try to unravel any

root canal.
The root is then cleaned,
sterilized and filled to prevent
any further infection.
Root Canal Treatment is
a skilled and time consuming
procedure. Most courses of
treatment will involve two or
more visits to your dentist.
At the first appointment, the
infected pulp is removed.
Any abcesses, which may be
present, can also be drained
at this time. However, if the
abscess is chronic or ad-
vanced, the supporting bone
may be destroyed and
only an extraction can
be done. The root ca-
nal is first cleaned and
|shaped in ready for
the filling. A tempo-
rary filling is inserted
and the tooth is left to
_-'--4 "settle". The tooth is
checked at a later visit

tion hl cleared the

Si f lENT?
Sf In the past, a .root
Filled tcoth will often
darken after treatment.
d However with modern
I techniques, this does not
S usually happen. If any
discolouration should
take place, there are sev-
i eral treatments available
to restore the natural ap-

mystery, if indeed there is
any here.

Root canal treatment,, (also
called Endontics) is needed
when the blood or nerve sup-
ply of the tooth (known as the
pulp) is infected through decay
or injury. Severe toothache is the
result. Sometimes the end result
is that the tooth becomes liter-
ally lifeless and therefore inca-
pable of eliciting pain.

If the pulp becomes in-
fected, the infection will spread
through., the root canal system
of the tooth, which may even-
tually lead to an abscess.
If root canal treatment is
not carried out, the infection
will spread and the tooth may
need to be taken out In the
worse case scenario, the bacte-
ria can invade the brain via the
blood system, causing encepha-
litis which is fatal.

No. A local anaesthetic is
used and the whole procedure
should feel no different to that
of having and ordinary filling
The aim of the treatment is
to remove all infection from the

Root Canal Treatment is
usually very successful. How-
ever if there should be a re-oc-
currence of infection, the treat-
ment can be repeated.

Yes. Root Canal Treat-
ment generally is among the
more costly dental procedures
due to the length of time re-
quired, as well as the skill and
material needed. It is how-
ever worth it when one con-
siders that it's the only way
to save a tooth which is in
very poor health.

The alternative to RCT is
the removal of the tooth. Once
the pulp is destroyed, it can't
heal and it is not recommended
to leave an infected tooth in the
.mouth. While some people
would prefer an extraction, it is
usually advisable to keep as
many natural teeth as possible.

Last week, we wrote about ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION using : ,
CHEST COMPRESSION (see picture #1) and MOUTH-TO- t ...." "
NOSE techniques. Today, we will deal with physical techniques '. : ..*? .
which you can use to stimulate the non-beating heart into ac-
HEART MASSAGE(see picture #2) .5, - x ..." . .' .
This emergency procedure may be used when no heart-beat can .
be heard or felt. This latter condition can occur, for example, after .
a dog has been knocked down by a motor vehicle. Heart-beat stop- .
page usually follows the cessation of breathing. The technique for
an emergency Heart Massage is as follows (see picture # 2):
i. Ascertain, for sure, that there is no pulse or heart beat.' .
You can do this by putting three fingers (or your ear) or the left
side chest area (in the region of the third rib, above the chest bone).
If there is a heart-beat, it will be discernible. ,
ii. Clear way any discharges/secretions from the mouth and
nostrils. Remove also any foreign bodies (e.g. food particles). .

vi. Continue this procedure until the heart begins to beat on
its. own. Of course, if after 2-3 minutes there is no response (no
heart-beat) to this manual massage, it can be concluded that the
innimal will not recover.
, Next week we will deal with emergency measures which'
can be taken when the animal is burnt or has encountered an
electric shock.
Please implement disease preventative measures (vaccina-
tions, routine dewormings, monthly anti-Heartworm medica-
tion, tc,) and adopt-a-pet from the GSPCA's Animal Clinic and
Shelter at Robb Street and Orange Walk, if you have the
wherewithal to care well for the animals. Do not stray your
unwanted pets, take them to the GSPCA Clinic and Shelter
instead. Also, find out more about the Society's free spray and
neutering programme. If you see anyone being cruel to an ani-
mal, get in touch with the Clinic and Shelter by calling 226-

The chest compression technique for giving artificial res-

Heart Massage. Note the placement of the hands behind
the elbow and over the heart. Heart massage alone pro-
vides for movement of air as well as pumping of blood.
iii. Place your dog on a flat, hard surface with the left side
facing upwards.
iv. If it is small dog (e.g a puppy that has just playfully run
through the gate, on the road, in front of a non-stopping, mini-bus),
then we can massage the heart with the fingers of one hand. The
heart area is grasped in'its totality, the thumb on the top and the
other four fingers (wrapped around the sternum) on the other side.
If it is a large dog (an adult Doberman, say) place the palm of the
hand on the left side in the area of the heart on the rib, cage.
v. Squeeze the chest area (compression) five times firmly,
at three second intervals. Stop for 4-5 seconds. The chest will ex-
pand. This manipulation alone can ensure the movement of air as
well as the pumping of blood.

My father was busy doing things every night for
the next week, and on the Sunday morning us two
left home by the five o'clock locomotive that took
workers to the canefields and travelled the full
seven miles. It went, then through canefields to
the big cattle-grazing savannah that was right
near the Blackbush on the creekside. We spent
the day rounding eight heads of my big uncle's
steers and we drove them all the way back and
didn't reach home before eleven o'clock that
night, and next morning I couldn't put my feet
down for all the hurting.

Pa and Ma came from the village and stayed with
us for the whole Vweek during rice-cutting and mash-
ing and my old man talked to my mother to let me stay
away from school that week. Twelve village women
met every morning at our home and tlen went out to
the fields, and they bent over and worked till sun-down
four whole days, cutting the paddy-tops ith their saw-
edged curved grass knives and leaving them in
bundles; apd my Pa and Ma cut lohg grass and
pounded th6m with wood mallets to mae them supple
and then four men collected the paddy4tops and tied
them with th pounded long-grass an\ fetched the
bundles on tteir heads to the front of the fields. The
men made a place on the cattle dam; they hoed away
the bahama grass from a wide round patch and lev-
elled it down and stacked up the bundles and 1ft
twenty-five feet clear in the centre. My f4therhitched
up the steer into two teams of four and he planted a
post in the centre of the prepared gro nd and tied the
teams to it and scattered some paddy-tops for the
cattle to walk on. I

And mashing started. I walked behind the cattle
and kept them going round.and rouhd the post and
we stopped for Pa and my father to 4ke up the
paddy-straw and pitch-fork in new ones from stacked-
up bundles. The cattle wanted to slqw d wn 'all the
time and eat the paddy and I carried the lash to them
like my old man said; and when they dunged he caught
it with some straw in his hands and tossed it into the
trench, and didn't let me stop them gling round even
for that. We ate our breakfast at midday from our
saucepans and drank lime-swank fromp bottles which
we kept cool by sinking them in the imud under the
water in the drainage trench. The sun Was burning hot
and we soaked our heads and washed our necks and
faces with the trench-water that wa cool under a
spreading sandkoker tree. My old man saw how tired
I was getting, walking round and roundiwith the cattle,
and he: built a seat on top of the post ind I climbed
up and drove the cattle from up there wi h a long whip.
That was better.,

About story writing: A good point to bear in mind
here is that when you write your story it must be so
interesting that your readers would want to read on
for reasons listed below.
a) plot;
b) one or all of the characters;
c) atmosphere; i
d) writer's style.,

What have you mastered well in your writing?

Figurative Expressions
Metaphor and Simile

A direct and simple statement is often the best way
of saying what you have to say. But, sometimes, you
need to add force to what you have to say by the use
of a figure of speech:

In a simile the comparison between two things is
nioi wl h? A n

with black tips under the hot sun.

In a metaphor, the idea of comparison is still
-there but it is not advertised by the use of "as"
or "like"; it takes the form of a statement and it
is left to the reader to spot that in; fact a figure
of speech has been used.

At noonday the black-tipped tongues of cane fires
flick under thej sun.

In the simi le and metaphor gone before the com-
parison is between the flames of the cane fires and
black-tipped tongues. Both may flicker, both are to
be found burning under the noonday sun, both are be-
havinglike tongues.

You may think that the comparison is a good one-
or a bad one.i

Try to find reasons for your judgment.

You can say that probably the metaphor is more
difficult to detect than a simile. This is partly because
tie metaphori is much more'likely to be compact.

Consider the following examples of sii le and
mbtaphirs. Tell in each case what is compared and
to what an why is,,the comparison made? Indicate
clearly 'vhich is metaphor and which is simile.

'1. So farlas his business arrangements were con-
cerned, he Sowed the seeds of ruin on that blood-
stained battlefield.
2. The big bird snapped in two like a brittle stick. C,
3. Perfectly controlled relaxation, like a bird in a
4. their plots crystalised.
5. The road upon which we traveled was long but
at tlie end was thegoal of freedom.
i 6. The university campus has had its face lifted.

[In the following passages point out any examples
of he use of Metaphor or Simile, state clearly what is
cotnpared to what, and give some indication of why
thij comparison is made.

places and events.

A word about reality: Reality writing concerns it-
self with the things that are possible. Its stories are
concerned with animals, people, things, places and
events that obey the laws of reality. In a passage of
reality, there will not be found animals talking or com-
menting about human beings as it would be found in
fantasy writing.

In the passage above, the lone woman was

She watched as the sun slowly moved away
from her. The writer said it "slowly abandoned
her". You might want to say that the writer was
trying to make the sun act like a human being.
You would be correct to say that. But writers
have licenses to do just that and still not turn the
writing into fantasy. Writers use this mechanism
regularly. It is a figurative expression that seeks,
for the sake of style, to make, an inanimate ob-
ject acquire something characteristic of a human
being. It makes the writing so much more inter-
esting. You can try doing it.

The expression, "The air became heavy" as it ap-
pears in the second sentence is just plain reality. Air
becomes heavy with moisture. There is nothing of
make believe in that.

Food and Beverage Biotechnology

- and the Risks Associated (Part 2)

IN OUR previous article in
this series we defined food and
beverage biotechnology
broadly as "the use of various
techniques by humans to
modify food plants, animals
and other organisms to'pro-
duce derivative foods of desired
quality, nutritional value, pro-
cessing quality, health and
safety values." We provided
fermentation, cheese-mak-
ing, brewing of beer and the
distilling of rum as examples
of "traditional" food and bev-
erage biotechnologies. Mod-
ern food and beverage bio-
technology, involving genetic
engineering, Was also dis-
cussed with specific examples.
Among several examples of
modem food biotechnology, is
the development of
"PROTATO," the protein-en-

riched potato which contained
between 33 percent and 50 per-
cent more total protein than the
conventional potatoes we pres-
ently eat. The development of
this potato we indicated involved
the isolation and insertion of the
protein-enrichment hereditary
material [=gene=portion of
DNA] responsible for increased
levels of nutritive amino acids
and protein production from a
"cousin" of "red stem calaloo,"
Amaranthus, (amaranth albumin
synthesis gene) into potato
which then become "genetically
programmed" to produce pota-
toes with very high protein and
essential amino acid content.
Foods produced from the
application of "modem food bio-
technology" methods are called
GM foods [=genetically modi-

fied foods] or GE foods [=ge-
netically engineered foods]. Es-
sentially, foods derived from
GM crops, GM livestock, GM
poultry, GM fish, GM seafood
would be appropriately referred
to as GM foods. By extension,
beverages produced from the
application of "modem beverage
biotechnology" will be appropri-
ately termed GM beverages.
Currently, most of the bio-
technology applications to food
crops have centred on genetic
engineering for pest-resistance
(insect-resistance), herbicide tol-
erance, disease resistance (viral
resistance, bacterial resistance,
fungal resistance). These are now




Tefi Government of Guyana (GOG), Caribbean Development Bank
(CDB) and the Government of Canada through the Canadian
International Development Agency (CIDA) have recently signed an
agreement to finance several projects under the Basic Needs Trust
Fund (BNTF) Fifth Programme. Construction of the sub-projects is
expected to be implemented in 2005/2006. The sub-projects consist-
primarily of buildings and other civil works aimed at improving the
social and economic infrastructure.
The Basic Needs Trust Fund invites tenders for the following sub-
1. Wanaina to Kokerite Hill Water Supply Reg. # 1
2. Jawalla Primary/Nursery School Construction Region # 7
3. Mahdia Water Supply Reg. #8
1. St. Cuthbert's Mission Water'Supply Region #4
2. Hill Side Drive Road Upgrading RE-TENDER Reg. # 10

Tender Documents for these 'sub-projects can be purchased from
the office of the Basic Needs Trust Fund at 237 Camp Street,
Georgetown in the form of a MANAGER'S CHEQUE payable to the
BASIC NEEDS TRUST FUND. Tender Documents for Lot A can
be purchased for a non-refundable fee of G$10,000 per sub-
project. Tender Documents for Lot B can be purchased for a
non-refundable fee of G$5,000.

Sealed tenders accompanied by valid NIS and Tax Compliance
Certificates (both of which should be in the name of individual orfirm
submitting the bid) should be addressed to the Project Manager,
and deposited in the Tender Box of the Basic Needs Trust Fund at
237 Camp Street, SIMAP's Building, Georgetown, on or before 10
am on Friday, December 2, 2005.

Each tender must be placed in a separate envelope with the name
of the sub-project clearly marked on the top, left-hand corner. The
envelope should in no way identify the tenderer.

The Basic Needs Trust Fund does not bind itselfto accept the lowest
or any other tender.

Tenderers or their representatives may be present at the opening of
the tenders at 10 am on Friday, December 2,2005.

classified as "first generation bio-
technologies." The genetic engi-
neering of food crops, animals
and other food organisms for en-
hanced nutritional value, in some
cases through the engineering of
metabolic pathways ( a process
now called metabolomics) for the
synthesis of higher levels of de-
sired nutritional compounds,
such as the case of vitamin A-
enriched rice, "golden rice," is
now classified as "second gen-
eration biotechnology."

According to a very recent
report produced .by the Food
Safety Department of the World
Health Organization (provisional
edition June 23, 2005), foods
derived from modem biotech-
nologies can be categorized as
1. "Foods consisting of or
containing living/viable organ-
isms, for example, corn.
2. Foods derived from or
containing ingredients derived
from GMOs, for example, flour,
products containing protein or
oil from GM soybeans
3. Foods containing single
ingredients or additives produced
by GM microorganisms, for ex-
ample, colours, vitamins and es-
sential amino acids.
4. Foods containing single
ingredients processed by en-
zymes produced through GM
microorganisms, for example,
high fructose com syrup pro-
duced from starch, using the en-
zyme glucose isomerase (prod-
uct of a GMO)."
We note the levels of classi-
fication range from the edible
parts of a GM crop, processed
product from a GM crop such
as flour from GM wheat or oil
or soy sauce from GM soybean,
single ingredient derived from
GM microorganisms, to prod-
ucts derived from the process-
ing (bioprocess technology) such
as the use of enzymes from GM
Since the dawn of human
civilization, microorganisms
have been used in "traditional
food and beverage biotechnolo-
gies," beginning 8000 years ago



Sponoredby he Gyan-UNE-GE

when Sumerians in Mesopotamia
used yeast to make beer and
wine. Subsequently, Egyptians
used yeast to leaven bread 6000
years ago.
Some microorganisms used
in traditional food and beverage
biotechnology before the dawn
of modem biotechnology:
Tetragonococcus (bacteria)
for soy sauce production
thermophilus (bacteria)
for making cheese and yogurt
* Brevibacteria
cured ham and fermented sau-
Vibrio costicola (bacteria)
for making
fermented herring
Aspergillus (mold fun-
for making vegetable fermenta-
Saccharomyces (yeast -
fungus) for making beer, bread
and wines
Several microorganisms have
been genetically modified/engi-
neered to produce desired en-
zymes used in food and bever-
age processing. Such microorgan-
isms are referred to as genetically
modified microorganisms or
GMMs. Next week we shall
briefly discuss this aspect.
In the first part of this ar-
ticle we provided a partial list of
the benefits of food biotechnol-
ogy. Within that list, one can re-
classify those that are of direct
benefit to human health as fol-
1. production of more
healthy foods such as lycopene-
enriched tomatoes, protein-en-
riched potatoes, vitamin A-en-
riched rice
Note: the US Food and Drug
Administration, on November 9

last gave limited approval to
"producers of tomatoes, tomato
sauce and dietary supplements
containing lycopene," allowing
companies to suggest a limited
link between lycopene, the pig-
ment that gives tomatoes, wa-
termelons and guava red colour,
and prostate cancer on product
labels. Similarly, based on the
limited body of scientific data so
far, the link between tomatoes
and the reduced risk of gastric
(stomach) cancer, ovarian cancer
and pancreatic cancer must be
heavily qualified.
2. production of foods with
higher nutritional benefits
3. production of low calorie
sweeteners such as fructans, for
the diet-conscious or obesity-
4. Improvement of food
safety. For example, GM corn
with the bacterial insect toxin
gene called Bt Corn, have been
found to have greatly reduced
content of a fungal poison called
fumonisin. This compound, be-
longing to a large group of fungal
poisons called mycotoxins, has
been linked to throat cancer in
humans who consume maize con-
taminated by the toxin accord-
ing to scientific reports pub-
lished by the International
Agency for Research on Cancer
(IARC) based in Lyon, France.
5. production of foods with-
out allergens.
6. production of foods with
non-nutritive active compo-
nents. For example, excessive
consumption of foods with
cholesterol content has now
been clearly linked to the de-
velopment of heart disease
(according to studies in the
journals Current Opinion in
Lipidology 2002, American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition
2003, and Journal of Nutrition
published by the American
Society for Nutritional Sci-
ences 2004). However, plant
compounds similar to holes

Food and Beverage ...

terol, phytosterols and
phytostanols, have now been
added to processed foods such
as margarines to help con-
sumers reduce elevated cho-
lesterol levels according to
reviews in the journal Trends
in Food Science and Technol-
ogy published two years ago.
7. health-related mineral nu-
trient-enrichment of foods. A re-
cent example is the genetic engi-
neering of the gene for accumu-
lation of the element selenium in
the form of an amino acid de-
rivative called Se-

methylselenocysteine according
to research published last year
in the online journal BioMed
Central Plant Biology.
It is important to note that
selenium, which is found reason-
able quantities in garlic and broc-
coli, "plays a significant role in
reducing the incidence of lung
cancer, colorectal cancer and
prostate cancer in humans."
In all this food safety con-
siderations are essential.
While some technologies are
designed to ensure greater
food safety, some techniques
employed in modern food and

beverage biotechnologies may
pose some undetermined
risks. However, stringent pro-
tocols have been designed for
risk analysis to ensure the
safety of a number of GM
foods and beverages. The con-
cept of determining "substan-
tial equivalence" between con-
ventional foods and beverages
and their modern biotechnol-
ogy counterparts have also
been employed. We leave the
discussion of risks associated
with food and beverage bio-
technologies for the last part
of this segment.
