Masked silent

pirates attack


By Shawnel Cudjoe

PIRATES have struck again
at fishermen working off the
In the latest attacks, at least
three fishing boats were attacked
and robbed by what victims be-
lieve was one gang off the
Annandale and Mon Repos,

Fishermen Balgit Singh, 47,
of Annandale Sand Reef, Den-

Repos South and another
Annandale fisherman were the
victims of pirate attacks be-
tween Thursday and Friday.
Singh, the captain of his
boat, yesterday said the daring

morning attack lasted about 15
minutes and has left him search-
ing for a new engine to continue'
plying his trade. .
He recalled that around
08:30 h, he and hi two crew
members had let .down their
seine from the 'Miss Anna' and
had finished eating when they
noticed a yellow, blue and white
speed boat approaching.
Singh said there, were four.
men on the boat all wearing'
masks, dark-coloured long
sleeved jackets and elbow-lefigth
gloves. One was armed with a
pistol and another had, a single
barrel shotgun, he told the Sun-

speak, but motioned to them to ;

Canje housing scheme flooded

THE government has taken
steps to reduce flooding at the
Canefield New Housing
Scheme in Canje, Berbice,
the Government Information
Agency (GINA) reported yes-
The agency said that fol-
lowing the intervention of Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo, acting Ag-
riculture Minister, Mr
Satyadeow Sawh visited the re-
gion Friday afternoon and two
heavy-duty tractor pumps were
to be deployed to drain flood
waters from the area.
The. Minister met regional
officials, residents and officials
of the Guyana Sugar Corpora-
tion (GUYSUCO), and in-
formed them that he was at
Cabinet Friday when President
Jagdeo received the information
from the regional officials and he
was immediately instructed to
visit the area.
GINA reported that some
residents said the main reason
for the flooding was overtop-
ping from the canals under the
control of GUYSUCO, while
others contended that it was a
lack of maintenance of the drain-
age and irrigation system in the

erly maintained by the region,

"It is lack o; management of
the GUYSUCO canals that
caused overtopping, which
flood the place. I live here for
over 23 years and this never
happen, GUYSUCO is just
careless, they don't really care

about workers," another resi-
dent charged.
Sawh asked whether there
was an alternative to get the
water off the land and one resi-
dent explained that if the main
drainage canal door was closed,
the water could be pumped
out. This suggestion found

favour with those present,
GINA said.
It said Sawh then instructed
Regional Chairman, Mr
Kumkarran Ramdass to put
measures in place to acquire a
pump to drain the water as soon
as possible.
The Regional Chairman

promised the Minister-and resi-
dents that by Friday evening a
tractor pump would have been
sent to the area and another
was to have been sent yester-
Sawh also instructed the
Regional Chairman to form a
committee to look into the cause
of the flood and to find solu-
tions, the agency said.
The committee members
will include Ramdass, several
residents, officials of
GUYSUCO and Member of
Parliament for Region Six, Mr
Ramesh Rajkumar along with
Member of Parliament, Mr
Zulfikar. Mustapha.
The report of the findings of
the committee would be pre-
sented to the Minister, GINA

It is advised to practise
good hygiene daily not just as a
preventative measure for avian
influenza but to help prevent
all other common illnesses.
"Also boost your basic re-
sistance to common illnesses by
having good nutrition (increas-
ing your vegetable and fruit in-
take). It has been proven glo-
bally that eating right, sleeping
enough and exercising all help to
boost the body's immune sys-
tem and this helps to fight ill-
nesses", the ministry said.
The National Committee

on Influenza Preparedness is in
the final stages of producing
and disseminating Guyana's Na-
tional Influenza Preparedness
Plan, it reported.
The sub committees (sur-
veillance, health response, ani-
mal health and communications)
have produced and presented
individual committee strategic
plans which will be part of the
national plan, the update said.
It added that Guyana is
one of the first countries to
start working towards pre-

ment and we have discharged

dispose their garbage", Sawh
GINA said he also alluded
to the $800M which the Gov-
ernment has allocated to repair
and construct sea defences, and
to clear and maintain drains and
canals across the country.
It said Ramdass reported
that Region Six commenced
preparatory works three
weeks ago.

all fronts

T HE BATTLE is now-being waged on all fronts by
the Caribbean Community to prevent social and
economic crises for the region's sugar and
banana exporting countries against the most
disturbing, inconsiderate attitudes by the European
Not only are CARICOM sugar-producing
states, with Guyana being the worst to be affected,
struggling to come to terms with the coming massive
36 per cent price cutfor sugar sold on the European
market. From next month, concessions that have been
critical for the region's banana economies, in the.
Windward Islands in particular, will go under by'
replacement of a single tariff and phasing out of the
quota system for EU banana imports from producers.
of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.
In the face of self-serving compromises
being made in the interest of preserving subsidies for.

European beet sugar farmers, while also protecting
European interests and that of major corporate
banana exporters in Latin America, CARICOM and its
ACP allies have to.mount their most sustained
aggressive efforts to secure the best possible
advantages at next week's Ministerial Meeting of the
World Trade Organisation,(WTO) in Hong Kong.
:They simply have to firmly resist self-
serving calls from the rich and powerful for
"consensus" to save the Hong Kong WTO ministerial
from suffering the debacle of either Cancun or the
earlier disastrous failure of Seattle. Consensus
must serve the interests of ALL.
If the ACP and its allies within Europe and the
Western Hemisphere hold the line ori fair trade with
justice, they may yet succeed in defeating the
manoeuvres at the WTO Hong Kong meeting to further
marginalise and pauperise poor and vulnerable
economies now battling against narco-trafficking,
escalating criminality, joblessness and erosion of even
limited socio-economic gains.
The militant, informed positions, reported
within the past fortnight, as variously articulated by
President Bharrat Jagdeo, Foreign Trade Minister
Clement Rohee, lan McDonald, Chief Executive Officer
of the Sugar Association of the Caribbean, as well as
Guyana's ambassador in Brussels, Patrick
Gomes, reflect the depth of shared .anger and sense
of betrayal felt across this region on the callous sugar
price cut decision of EU Agriculture Ministers.
On Friday, Trade Ministers of the Windward
Islands and Jamaica in reacting to the implications of
changing the rules on banana imports for Europe's
market from January 2006, expressed a sentiment
similar to that earlier emphasised by the ACP over the

EU's new sugar reform regime:
"The Caribbean", said the Trade Ministers
"will not be relegated to a position of third, part)
bystanders in any resolution of the banana issue
unlike our experience during the recently-cohclude
WTO arbitration process. We, therefore, insist that w
be part of any agreement reached, and wish to serve
notice that we too are willing to fight all the way I
Hong Kong and beyond to protect our countries front
the risk of even more poverty and destitution..."
This is the mood that must inspire tht
intensified lobbying, diplomatic initiatives and bilatera
negotiations in the days leading to the WTO'.

All sectors of society, in this and other affected

organizations are involved and must not vacillate, o

Focus on 2nd Cuba-CARICOM Summit

Tight security for Castro's

Barbados visit for meeting

administrations since 1959
when the Cuban revolution
became a reality, arrives this
week in Barbados for the
Second Cuba-CARICOM
Summit in five years.
For this third visit to
Barbados since 1994, the Cuban
leader is expected to spend at
least two days for which there
will be very tight security with
a mix of Barbadian and Cuban
intelligence personnel.
As customary, for
security reasons, when he
travels abroad, the Cuban
embassy in the host country, in
this case Barbados, is sticking
to the script of its Foreign
Therefore, it claims
"unawareness" of either the
date or the time of President
Castro's arrival for the one-day
on meeting on December 8 with
leaders of the Caribbean
Among the Heads of
Government will be President
Bharrat Jagdeo and Prime
Minister P.J. Patterson, who
will be making his last
appearance at such an event as
he demits office next year.
I have been informed
that the summit, which
has its concept and format
to what was inaugurated in
Havana in December 2002 to
mark three decades of unbroken
friendship between Cuba and
the 32-year-old CARCOM, is
scheduled to get underway this
Thursday morning at the new
Barbados Hilton that will be
heavily ringed with security
It will be preceded by
a meeting on Wednesday
(December 7) of Foreign

CARICOM's Secretary
General Edwin Carrington, who
will be master of ceremonies for
the summit, was unavailable for
comment on the draft agenda for
the occasion. Speakers for the
opening session will be host
Prime Minister Arthur, Prime
Minister Kenny Anthony of St.
Lucia current CARICOM
chairman, and President Castro.
Officially, neither Cuba
nor Barbados, host government
for the meetings of Foreign

Ministers of Cuba and the 15-
member Community with the
exception also for the summit
- of Haiti, where a United States-
created interim regime is
currently involved in preparing
, for new parliamentary and
presidential elections next
The last time the
legendary Castro, now 79, came
to Barbados was in 1998 on an
invitation from Prime Minister
Owen Arthur, host for this
week's summit.
Castro's primary
mission then was to
ceremonially unveil the historic
monument dedicated by
Barbados to the 73 victims of
the terrorist bombing of a
Cubana aircraft off Barbados in
October 1976. Castro had also
visited Jamaica and Trinidad and
Tobago during that 1998 journey
to CARICOM states.
This week's summit,
held once ever three
years, preceded by a Foreign
Ministers meeting every 18
months, will take place against
the backdrop of a week-long film
and arts festival in Barbados that
took place from September 28-
October 4.

Government was ready to give a

Informed sources have,
however, signalled that under the
central theme of 'The Caribbean
Strategy for Social Protection and
Sustainable Human
Development', major agenda
issues would include:
The deepening of
mutually satisfactory trade and
economic relations; health, sports
and technical cooperation, as
well as security, terrorism and
relevant hemispheric and
international developments of

Discussions on the health
sector would focus on Cuba's

expanding provision of
doctors, nurses and other
forms of support for the health
sector in a number of
CARICOM states, including
Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad and
Tobago, Antigua, Grenada, St.
Lucia and St. Vincent.
By last month,
some seven thousand (7000)


nationals of CARICOM had

second quarter of 2005, and
subsequently embracedby Venezuela

He is currently in
detention in Texas, awaiting a
judge's ruling not on terrorism
charges but, strangely, for

Am e r i c a s

Posada protection. This dates
back to his involvement in the
1976 bombing of the
Cubana commercial flight in
international waters off
The victims of that
first bombing tragedy by

CARICOM, sharing
the official position of Cuba,
feels that the USA must be
consistent in its declared "war on

among them Posada.
At their annual 2005
summit in St. Lucia last July, the
CARICOM leaders had
endorsed the position adopted
by their Foreign Ministers that

since Wednesday and is not yet
working. A GT&T employee
promised faithfully, when the
problem was promptly re-
ported Wednesday, that it would
have been addressed "soon".
Soon turned out to be Fri-
day when a technician turned up
in the street, stopped awhile at
another house, then came around
by me, puttered around and said
he was going to look at a 'box'
on the utility pole.
He drove off and never re-
turned. And the phone was still
dead up to yesterday.
I can't blame the technician.
He probably got a call on hisi
cell phone that flood waters
were into his house and had to
scoot off to bail it all out with
a bucket.
He and GT&T will prob-
ably turn up when the rains and
the flood threats are gone. In the
meantime, I can't get on the
Internet from home, and if you
call my phone and get the busy
tone all day and night, it's not
me on the phone. It's probably
GT&T tying up the line trying
desperately to get City Hall to
bail out water from their tele-
phone boxes.
It's probably a blessing in
disguise too, since no one can
reach me by phone to complain
about flood waters and wonder-
ing if I have got my boat yet
and could I please come to res-
cue them.
Looks like I Ras Rief Khan

need a bigger one in Georgetown.

'Massa Day' in
the bitter-sweet
history of sugar
in the Caribbean
and sister ex-colonies of Af-
rica and the Pacific was evi-
dent for public scrutiny world-
wide in the compromise deal
struck between the European
Commission and the Euro-
pean Union's Agriculture
Ministers in their reform of
the EU sugar regime on
Thursday November 25,2005.
The EU Agreement was
reached under the UK Presi-
dency and entails a drastic cut
of 36 per cent in the guaran-
teed price to be paid to
Europe's 312,000 beet farm-
ers from 2006 for a four year
This will result in the
loss of several millions of
foreign exchange by sugar
industries, sugar workers
and cane farmers in ACP
countries who since 1975
exported 1.3 million tonnes
of raw sugar under a Sugar

Protocol which had an an-
nually negotiated guaran-
teed price.
This devastating blow to the
small and vulnerable economies
of the 18 ACP sugar exporting
countries include six CARICOM
Member States-Barbados,
Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint
Kitts-Nevis and Trinidad and
The reduced price brings
with it a loss of at least
US$120 million to Caribbean
sugar producers whose sales
account for as much as 60 per
cent of foreign exchange earn-
ings and employ several thou-
sands directly in the industry
and related enterprises while
providing a range of social
services in education, techni-
cal training, health and com-
munity development while
protecting the environment by
cultivations of sugar cane.
The EU cut its deal
with such a drastic
reduction among
their own and with blatant con-
tempt for consequences to the
economic, social and political
ramifications of the traditional

GUYANA'S Minister of For-
eign Trade, Clement Rohee,
has an unenviable task dur-
ing the Sixth Ministerial
Meeting of the World Trade
Organisation (WTO) in Hong
Kong from December 13th to
Mr Rohee has been selected
by the Chairman of the Confer-
ence as one of six "facilitators",
three of them having specific
roles. In Mr Rohee's case, he
has been assigned "specific de-
velopment related issues".
The Guyana Trade Minis-
ter played a similar role at the
Fifth Ministerial Meeting in
Cancun in 2003. The task was
not easy then, and it is far
harder now.
The Cancun meeting col-
lapsed when the yawning gulf
between the positions of the de-
veloped countries, the EU, the
U.S. and Japan, and developing
countries became blatantly clear
over agricultural subsidies by the
rich which, in significant part,
deprived the poor of markets in
which they might otherwise
But, some developed coun-
tries, such as Australia, were
also unhappy at Cancun, and
their vehement position bol-
stered the strong alliance be-
tween China, India, Brazil and
South Africa that dictated the
stance of the larger developing
For the most part in
Cancun, CARICOM countries
stuck with their African and Pa-
cific partners in ACP group.
They recognized that without
access to the EU market on
preferential terms, they would
be unable to compete with
larger developing countries.
At Cancun, Mr Pascal
Lamy, now Director-General of
the WTO, was the lead negotia-
tor for the European Union
(EU), and his mandate then was
to give up as little as possible
on agricultural subsidies as he
could, but to advance the open-
ing of markets to services, com-
petitive investment, and compe-
tition for contracts.

Now we come to Hong
Kong where battle lines are
drawn even deeper, except this
time there are very few coun-
tries with which CARICOM
countries can seek an alliance,
except for the African and Pa-
cific states in the ACP group.
In the wake of the refusal at
Cancun by the EU, and at that
time the U.S., to budge on agri-
cultural subsidies particularly
for EU beet sugar and U.S. cot-
ton, several countries sought the
intervention of the WTO.
Arbitration panels found
against the EU on beet sugar and
against the U.S. on cotton.
The EU then seized the op-
portunity of having to reduce
the subsidized price paid to Eu-
ropean farmers, to cut down the
price paid to ACP countries for
their cane sugar.
African, Caribbean and Pa-
cific (ACP) are now seething
over the EU decision to cut
prices paid for their sugar by 36
per cent in a phased basis start-
ing in 2006.
Mr Rohee's country,
Guyana, alone will lose
US$37 million per year in rev-
enues, and the sugar-exporting
countries of CARICOM will
collectively lose US$95 mil-
In addition, the EU has of-
fered 18 of the ACP countries
the derisory sum of 40 million
Euros as compensation for the
second half of 2006, but there
is no decision on how much will
be on offer after that or for how

So, the representatives of
CARICOM countries will be

isterial meeting with blood in
their eyes. And, not only over
sugar. They also face the loss

they should be responsive to
their wealthy and powerful
farming community, just so
Mliniter Knight and other min-
i:ters from the ACP have a re-
sponsibilii\ to the small, poor
and numerous agricultural work-
ers in their countries.
Recently, the Head of the
European Commission's Del-
egation 1to Barbados and the
Eastern Caribbean, Mr Amos
Ticani, is reported
n to have told a
workshop at the
NDERS| University of the
West Indies Cave
Hill Campus, that
the Caribbean has "unrealistic
expectations" of Europe. Mr
Ticani is also reported to have
said that the region needs to
sever its umbilical cord to Eu-
rope, and he described Carib-
bean reaction to the unilateral
cut in the price paid for sugar
as "a lot of fuming".
"The past", he is reported

to have said, "is the past. We
want to look at the future".
If Mr Ticani is correctly re-
ported, he overlooks that in the
past, European nations became
wealthy and powerful on the
resources of the Caribbean in-
cluding sugar and that forced
labour played no small part in
the accumulation of that wealth
and power.
He also ignores the fact that
if CARICOM countries are
"fuming", it is because they had
a right to expect a contract on
sugar to be respected. If the
Caribbean had abrogated a con-
tract in the same way, they
would have been made to pay a
The Caribbean could draw a
line on the past in its relation-
ship with Europe, and it could
look to a future in which Eu-
rope is less important. That
would be a sad development for
both groups of countries.
But, in drawing a line on

a mandate for the Hong Kong
-meeting that is very similar to
the one Mr Lamy advanced in
Cancun. Mr Mandelson has
already said that the EU is not
giving another inch on agricul-
ture, and the discussion
should turn to opening up
market access, particularly in
developing countries, for non-
agricultural goods and ser-
vices and to a reduction in in-
dustrial tariffs.
Of course, the farming
lobby in Europe most of it ex-
tremely wealthy farmers, not
small by any measure is pow-
That power explains two
other things in large part: firstly,
the reduction in the price paid
by the EU for sugar from 39 per
cent to 36 per cent; and sec-
ondly, the huge compensation
that will be paid to EU beet
sugar producers once the price
cut is in place.
Unlike the miserly com-
pensation being offered to the
ACP group, the EU farmers can
look forward to access to a fund
of Euro 7.5 billion which would
give them about 64.2 per cent
of their present income.
Jamaica's Trade Minister,
K D Knight,. has already an-
nounced his intention to "cold
shoulder" the EU in Hong
Kong. Mr Knight's obvious an-
ger is understandable for two
good reasons.
Firstly, his country had a
contract with the EU over sugar.
He could not have reasonably
expected that the EU would
overturn the contract without, at
least, taking careful soundings
from the governments of the
Secondly, he has a duty' of
care to his own people. Just as
the EU political directorate feel




the past and not relying on
sentiment, conscience or com-
pensation for broken prom-
ises, the region would be
forced to use whatever little
leverage it has to look after its.
own interests.
Part of that leverage is for
CARICOM countries to drive a
hard bargain in Hong Kong in
close collaboration with their
partners in the ACP group.
For, if the ACP countries
are to achieve anything in Hong
Kong for themselves, they will
have to hold to a common po-
sition and resolve to stop any
other matters being advanced
until their own special circum-
stances are addressed.
Crucial to those circum-
stances is not only far larger
compensation for sugar than
the EU has proposed, but also
an agreed number of years
over which it will be paid.

ONE of the joys 4f working
with the public' is being able
to help the sniall Iperson in
moments of difficulties. On
a daily basis, one receives vis-
its, telephone! calls, letters
and yes, e-mails from indi-
viduals with complaints. Per-
sons report feeling aggrieved
by the action Or in-action of
some private person and/or
company, a localgovernment
body, a government depart-
ment, a public utility com-
pany and even the law en-
forcement agencies.
A most telling element of
these complaints has been the
poor, inadequate or non-re-
sponse of the agencies and in-
dividuals in question. One could
gauge these citizens' frustration
and even the need to speak to
someone who will listen to and
understand their 'plight'. In
many situations, they know
little can be done quickly, but all
they desire is empathy. I have
discovered that a little note or
even a phone call to some func-
tionary makes a lot of difference
for those who feel aggrieved or
a victim of some form of per-
ceived or real injustice.
The President of Guyana
has himself discovered a degree
of uncaring feeling.and sloth of

various public officials at differ-
ent levels that he was compelled
to employ special officers who
listen to the public to follow up
their problems, be it personal or
community. In interaction with
the President, residents would
preface their complaints with -
"Mr. President, I know thesis
a small problem for you. Bt no
one seems to be listening...Y' .
Now a considerable portion
of the President's outreach
across the country is dedicated
to listening to people's prob-
lems and suggestions and have
these addressed and/or appro-
priately channeled for quick and
deliberate action.
Ordinary persons are mak-
ing full use of the democratic
options to voice their concerns
and complaints. This is how it
should be! They remember a
time when speaking out against
a government agency or even
meeting a government minister,
much less the Head of State,
carried a price or even a severe
penalty. That has now changed
and should be for good.
At times, even those of us
who can help citizens represent
their problems are peeved at the
apparent callous, slothful and
even insensitive behaviour of
representatives of various gov-

emnment, State, security and util-
ity bodies. Look at the daily
television newscasts and news-
papers and see the numerous
complaints about the tawdry
conduct of GPL and GWI
agents during their interaction
with the public (customers).
Complaints about bad conduct
by a few police ranks have kept
the Guyana Police Force. Office
of Professional Responsibility
and the Police Complaints Au-
thority busy. Even the Crime
Chief earlier this year expressed
his concerns about the sus-
pected illegal conduct of some
ranks in the Force.
But while genuine steps are
taken by some of these entities

to be more responsive and cor-
rect, perceived or real-ills, there
needs to be more visibility. The
old saying justice must not
only be done, but inust be seen
to be done is v6ry pertinent,
especially when addressing the
public's complaints and con-
The concerned agencies
must ensure that tieir action or
inaction does not cause them to
be seen as 'oppressors' of the
ordinary man and woman. En-
tities which provide public ser-
vice such as the M'olice Force,
GPL, GWI, Customs, T&HD,
.license department, Deeds Reg-
istry and even some of the pri-
vate sector companies need to
be more humane 'and consider-
ate. Being efficient, sensitive and
considerate cannot compromise
anyone's mandate and purpose.
The same holds true for govern-
ment departments and minis-
tries. !
These entities must not
feel angry or targeted when
people vent their frustration in
a peaceful, legal and legitimate
way. I always feel comforted
when I see people make strident,
representation but in a lawful
way, on behalf of their commu-
Peaceful protests show that

people are eager to enhance their
standard of living; protests re-
flect hope in the authorities to
make changes and better their
conditions. When people do not
believe that better can come and
expect no response or results
from the authorities, they will
protest or make active represen-
tations. They resort to these
forms of behaviour out of a
sense of hopelessness. Lest it
be misconstrued, I am not en-
dorsing street violence and the
type of opposition protests
which saw the loss of lives and
damage to private and public
property. Any protest must
conform with the guidelines set
out in the laws of the country
and carried out in such manner
that no harm or disruption is
caused to anyone, anywhere.
I recall while studying in In-
dia that it was a daily feature to
have no less than 20 different
types of protest actions on a
daily basis in the capital, New
Delhi. India being the largest de-
mocracy in the world has sought
to creatively convert these pro-
test actions and the mood into
positive energy for structural
changes in a society where dis-
parities are daunting.
There is a perception that

some agencies and officials only
react to protests. While this
may not be true, it is a percep-
tion that ought not to be ig-
nored. The racing pace of de-
velopment in the country will
see more people becoming im-
patient about seeming delays in
the provision of goods and ser-
vices. And yes, the well-known
television political agitators will
use this impatience to create in-
stability. But this is backfiring
as people will not allow them-
selves to be used as political
pawns. The vibrancy of any de-
mocracy is also exemplified by
peaceful and legitimate protests
which are intended to get help
and not destroy. It's all in the
same package.
No matter if protests will
be ever-present, those who
are mandated with providing
goods and services must con-
stantly seek to improve deliv-
ery, be more, considerate and
responsive.t Daily, fewer
_people will sit by and accept
poor or bad treatment. The
modern Guyana being con-
structed demands that citi-
zens who are proud, full of
hope, be ready to agitate and
struggle for a better, newer
levels of progress.

Kyoto and. the

Blair Switc'h..

THE world were run by sci-
ntists, by the time the
united Nations Conference
n Climate. Change in
ontreal ends on December
we would have- global
agreement to cut greenhouse
as emissions by 25 or 30 per
ent in the follow-on period
o the Kyoto. agreement,
which expires in 2012. But it
on't happen: the Bush
blockade and the absence of
China.and: India were prob-
bly enough to block agree-
ent anyway, and now there
is also. the Blair Switch.
The original Kyoto accord,
negotiated. in the mid-'1990s
when climate change seemed a
naich less urgent problem, man-
dated, average cuts in greenhouse
gas emissions of less than six
>er cent from the 1990 level by
2012, and only obliged indus-
ial countries to comply. It was
really only meant to serve as a
precedent for later agreements
that would impose deeper cuts
and bring in developing coun-
tries like China and India, whose
economies had only recently
egun to grow rapidly.
By the turn of the century,
t was clear that those countries
were becoming a much bigger
art of the problem: China now
pens a new coal-burning power

station every two weeks, and
will overtake the United States
to become the world's largest
emitter of carbon dioxide by
International financial incen-
tives might have persuaded the
newly industrialising countries
to invest in low-carbon alterna-
tives and rein in their 'soaring
emissions without curbing eco-
nomic growth, but the Bush
administration's defection from
the Kyoto agreement in 2001
scuppered that possibility.
The Bush administration's
hatred of internationally man-
dated emission limits is largely
ideological. It insists that they
would destroy the: American
economy, but in fact, the US has
a relatively energy-efficient
economy whose greenhouse gas
emissions only grew 13.3 per
cent between 1990 and 2003. It
would have considerably less
trouble in complying with the
Kyoto rules than neighboring
Canada, whose emissions grew
by 24.4 per cent in the same
The accord finally came
into effect early this year after
Russia ratified it (despite in-
tense American pressure not
to), and only America and Aus-
tralia remain outside it among
the industrialised countries. It

was already high time to stai
negotiating the next round o
cuts and bring the big develop
ing countries into the treaty, fo
climate change was movin
much faster than anticipated.'
Arctic sea ice, which nor
mally covers an area about th
size of Australia, has shrun

past quarter-century, and th

have a chance of hitting those
targets. But we've got to start
now. We have no time to lose."
We are not going to start now.
In August, the Bush admin-
istration persuaded China, In-
dia, Australia, Japan and South
Korea to sign up for a rival
pact, the Asia-Pacific Partner-
ship for Clean Development and
Climate, that fixes no emission
targets and talks only of encour-
aging private industry to de-
velop low-emission technologies
and transfer them to
industrialising countries.
But if there are no targets,
where's the incentive?
As Shell,. BP and eleven
other companies wrote to
British Prime Minister Tony
Blair last May: "Govern-
ments tend to feel limited in
their ability to introduce

new policies for reducing
emissions because they fear-
business resistance, while.
companies are unable to.
take their low-carbon solu-
tions to scale because of lack
of long-term policies." Lord
Oxburgh put it more bluntly:
"What we don't want to see
is in two years' time the
government simply becoming
bored with climate change
after we've invested a lot of
our shareholders' money."
Give us the limits and we'll,
do the job.
Now even Tony Blair, long
the main champion for Kyoto
among the G8 leaders, has ef-
fectively declared the treaty

dead. In September, sitting on
a platform with Condoleezza
Rice, he announced-that he was
"changing my thinking about
this", and no longer wanted the
world's nations to negotiate in-
ternational treaties on climate
change. "The truth is, no coun-
try is going to cut its growth
or consumption substantially
ih light of a long-term environ-
mental problem," he said not
even one that he used to call
"the single most important is-
sue we face as a global commu-
nity." The only hope, Blair
concluded, echoing'Bush's po-
sition, lay in new science and
Given these grave new
blows to the basic Kyoto no-
tion that emission limits and
new technologies go hand in
hand, it's probably pointless
to expect the Montreal con-
ference that opened on Mon-
day to be more than a hold-
ing operation. Nobody will
be aiming at 30 per cent cuts
in C02 emissions in 2012-
2020. Just agree to meet
again in a year or two, and
wait for more environmental
disasters to change people's

Region Five nurses complete

safe motherhood course

SEVERAL nurses and other
health care workers in Re-
gion Five (Mahaica/Berbice)
have benefited from yet an-
other in-house training
The latest was a five-day
seminar gearing them for better
work for safe motherhood and
for care and management of
chronic diseases such as diabe-
tes and hypertension.
The seminar was held from
Monday to Friday at the Re-
gional Democratic Council at
Fort Wellington, West Coast
Berbice, and those who partici-
pated were mainly staff of
health centres within the region

and professional mid-wives.
It was organised by the
Maternal and Child Health De-
partment of the Ministry of
Health in collaboration with the
Regional Health Department of
the region.
Health care workers re-
cently benefited from a two-
day in-house training in mid-
November on the management
and care of filarial patients.
That seminar/workshop was
organised and held at the same
venue at Fort Wellington by the
Department of Disease Control
of the Ministry of Health again
in collaboration with the De-
partment of Health in Region

During the five day event,
last week, aspects of pre-natal,
intra-natal and post natal care
for pregnant women, aspects of
immunisation including identifi-
cation and management of
immunisation targets as well as
predisposing factors for the
emergence of chronic diseases
were among the topics pre-
sented to participants and dis-
cussed by them.
The pre-natal, intra-natal
and post natal care elements of
the programme served as a re-
fresher to trained midwives on
management and care of both
mother and infant before, dur-

ing and after birth. '
Lecturers on chronic dis-
eases focused on obesity, hy-
pertension and diabetes and
protocols for the nutritional
management of these maladies.
Regional Health Officer of
Region Five, Ms Venus Smartt
said there was enthusiastic par-
ticipation by all involved.
Resource persons from
Georgetown included retired
midwife teacher Ms Bernice
Brown, Clinical Tutor at the

Georgetown Public- Hospital-
Corporation Ms Dana
Cummings, Chief Medex Mr
Noel Holder and Co-ordinator of
Medex Training Mr Wilton
Resource persons from Re-
gion Five included Smartt,
Medex Mrs Claudette Johnson
and Medex Mrs Dolores
Smartt said a main aim of
the seminar was to sensitise
midwives and other related
health care staff on the need for
more efficient post natal care for
mothers and infants within the

mation on new births will be
made speedily available to field

OSCAR Bonilla, Chairman
of El Salvador's National
Public Security Council, has
warned the Organisation of
American States (OAS) Per-
manent Council that crimi-
nal gangs in Central
America threaten democratic
stability and governance in
the hemisphere.
Elaborating on alliances be-
tween certain gangs and
transnational organised crime,
Mr Bonilla argued that "what
we have is a combination of the
war experience along with drug-
and human trafficking which is
reaching our countries, and no
one country can handle this on
its own."
He said this is why the
Central American Integration
System is seeking to coordinate
policing and border security
policies as a matter of urgency.
Speaking about border prob-
lems, Bonilla described "a Gua-

ing it is a corridor used by gangs
for human trafficking but also for
weapons and drug trafficking.
He added that Mexico has simi-
larly become a platform for such
activities, "complicating the bor-
der with the United States."
Bonilla's address to the
OAS Permanent Council, made
at the request of El Salvador's
Ambassador to the OAS, Abigail
Castro de Perez, noted the in-
creasingly dangerous and sophis-
ticated technology at the dis-
posal of criminal groups.
He also spoke about the re-
sults of Central American strat-
egies for prevention as well as

The Salvadoran official
called on OAS member coun-
tries to tackle the problem as a
collaborative effort, mindful of
provisions articulated in the
resolution issued by OAS Gen-
eral Assembly in Fort Lauder-
dale, Florida, last June, and the
inclusion of a related paragraph
in the Mar del Plata Declaration
issued by the hemisphere's lead-
ers at the end of their Fourth
Summit of the Americas this
past November 5.
Permanent Council Chair
Ambassador Izben Williams of
St Kitts and Nevis thanked
Bonilla for his presentation,
while member state delegations
expressed support for
programmes proposed by the
governments of the affected
countries. They also promised
to follow up on measures
adopted to stem the spread of
gangs across the region.
During the same meet-
ing, the Secretary General of
the Latin American Integra-
tion Association (ALADI),
Ambassador Didier Opertti,
addressed the Permanent

FACING another rainy season and angry citi-

week should not have been in their yards and
homes, Georgetown's Chief Engineer Beverly
Johnson said yesterday the drainage system
in the capital city has been overwhelmed with
the indiscriminate use of plastic.

argument that with the Guyana
coast being below sea level wa-
ter will always be on the land for
sometime during rainy seasons,
said a modernisation plan for the
city is critical.
She said this is so given that
the -development of the capital

has outlived the archaic drainage
With heavy downpours last
week causing flooding in
Georgetown and some other
coastal communities, the devas-
tating floods at the start of the
year which paralysed the coastal
regions were fresh in the minds
of many as the drainage struc-

tures failed to pull the water into
the Atlantic Ocean as fast as
they would have liked.
President Bharrai Jagdeo ex-
pressed disgust and outrage at
the Thursday flooding of
Georgetown, and said the City
Council will have to do some ex-
plaining about the proper use of
a $50M subvention it. recently
received from the government to
fix the drainage system in the
city to specifically avoid flood-
Mr Jagdeo who returned
Wednesday from important over-
seas engagements, woke up like
other citizens to a flooded city
on Thursday and was furious
at a news conference later that
day when questioned about the
flood situation.
He said the council will have

to say what was done with the
$50M it received to clear and
clean the drainage systems in
Georgetown, in addition to re-
storing and installing several cul-
verts at strategic points.
Ms Johnson, who con-
tended that the city simply can-
not match the funds needed to
maintain the drainage system
with the challenges confronting
the exit flow of water, said the
citizens should own up and
share some of the blame for the
flood waters they see rise when
it rains.
"Even though we had suf-
fered in January/February we
have not seen a change in the at-
titude of citizens who suffered,"
she told the Sunday Chronicle.
She said the indiscriminate
use and the improper disposal

of plastic material -chokes the
drainage system and this could
be the major challenge as City
Hall deals with heavy down-
pours and high tides simulta-
"We simply cannot open the
sluice gates to let out water dur-
ing the high tides, and this has
caused the water to build up on
the land for sometime," Johnson
She said the problem with
plastics lie not only with indi-
vidual citizens, but with restau-
rants whose proprietors dump
their refuse into key alleyways
in the city.
"The plastic is kind of ahead
of us," she admitted.
She said another problem
with eating houses is that they

do not have the grease trap as
they should "and so the fat ends
up in the drains and blocks the
drains.., .so we have a real disci-
pline problem."
Ms Williams said the in-
creasing number of high rise
buildings in the city is also put-
ting pressure on the drainage
system. Added to this, she said,
is the fact that many citizens
concrete their yards and this
makes moving water off the land
"The city's drainage system
has outlived itself. It cannot
adapt to development and you
find the drainage system buck-
ling under any kind of pressure,"
Williams noted.
"What has happened also is
that over the years, we have

(From page 13)

in the mother to child
transmission programmes, for
instance, there have been serious
challenges in controlling the
spread of the disease in some
The fact that the
Bahamas, in two years has not
reported a single case of a child
being born with the HIV/AIDS
virus when their mother is an
infected person, is testimony to
the aggressive programme that
the region has adopted, Mr. Carl
Brown of the Pan Caribbean
Partnership (PANCAP) against
HIV/AIDS said.
Countries with such
programmes include Guyana,
Haiti, Barbados and Suriname.
Countries such as the
Bahamas, Bermuda, Haiti and the
Dominican Republic have
showed a decrease in the number
of HIV/AIDS cases, Brown told
the media.
In the Caribbean, some
500,000 persons are affected
with the virus.
Another area of success
for the Caribbean is their care
treatment and support
programmes. According to
Brown, CARICOM has strongly
and successfully advocated for
the reduction in the price of the
anti retroviral drugs. The price
has since moved from
US$10,000 to US$144 per
As a result, "you now
have a greater pool of people
who have access to the drugs,"
Brown added.
He added that the

regional grouping has worked
closely with the University of
the West Indies for the past
three years and to date, across
the three campuses in Jamaica,
Trinidad and Tobago and
Barbados, there are 127
courses with HIV/AIDS
content..Some 2000 students
every year have been exposed
to the teaching.
Recently, faith-based
organizations in the region
came on board to do their part
in the reduction of the spread
of the virus. Carrington said
that since they would be
concerned with abstinence,
their role is a vital one.
Statistics reveal that
in spite of the increase in the
number of educational and
awareness programmes over
the past five years, the number
of persons who have become
infected with the HIV/AIDS
virus has also increased.
Carrington queried
why the infection rate keeps
climbing in the face of this
abundance of available
Another member of
the PANCAP team, Dr.
Morris Edwards, opined that
the prevalence of the disease
has increased because persons
have become more aware and
responsible and are now
coming out and getting tested.
According to the
Secretary General, the
region's wealth is its health,
and to preserve this, HIV/
AIDS, one of the greatest
threats to humanity, must be
completely eliminated or
seriously crippled.

THE Big Apple table tennis
Team Three, which consisted
of three Guyanese players
Akbar Ali, Donald Duff and
Souvenir Ramdyal, along
with a 13-year-old Iranian
national, reached as far as the
semi-finals in the F (sixth)
division of the 2005 Stigma
North American teams table
tennis championship which
concluded at the Baltimore
Convention Center in Balti-
more, Maryland, USA last
week Sunday.
Overseas-based Guyanese
Paul David, who is rated 16th
in the USA on the other hand
could not rally his Big Apple

Table Tennis team NYC (team-
one) to get past Canadian 2006
in the quarter-finals of the A-di-
vision competition.
They lost 5-1, with only Thal
Leibovitz winning against
HomayounKamkar9-11, 11-7, 11-
7 and 11-8. David in his two games
lost to Kamkar and Xavier Therien
1-3 each. For reaching the quarter-
finals the David-led side went home
with US$600.
The big winner of the
championships was the
Canada 2008 team which was
led by Sri Lankan-born

in the final to pick up the top
prize of US$10 000.
The Ali-captained side
failed to get past a Canadian
girls' team in the semis of their
zone, losing 3-5 mostly because
the captain re-aggravated an old
injury earlier in the day and it
was only their highest ranked
player, Duff, who could have
tackled the Canadian girls' team,
playing both forehand and back-
hand strokes with precision.
He thrashed Qi Tang 11-4,
11-7, 11-4 and Paulin Cynthia
11-3, 15-13 and 11-9. The other
game he played was won 3-1
against Marie-Andree Levesque
His team mates, however,
could not match his perfor-
mance in any way, losing all
their matches.
Earlier in the day the side
defeating Baltimore Slackers 5-
4,. tied four apiece, Akbar
proved the hero. Seemingly ex-
hausted he was down 9-11 to
Radom Mark then bounced
back to win 11-5, but Mark was
not giving up and he won the
third 11-8.
Akbar, though, used his pa-
tience playing a defensive game
and when the time was right he
slammed and chopped his way
to points, winning 11-4 in the
nail-biting encounter to send the
team home with a 16-14 vic-
The other game played
was won 5-2 against Hard
Bats and Balls of USA.

Local Special Olympics

body upgraded

By Isaiah Chappelle
THE local Special Olympics
body has been upgraded in
administration and coaching
with input from the
Caribbean association.
Executive Director Candilla
Berment and Director of Sport
& Training David Benjamin of
the Trinidad & Tobago-based
regional body, visited during the
week and conducted training
sessions on Friday and
Berment told Chronicle
Sport that the Caribbean body
had some 23 miember-countries

and she was responsible for
training the boards in each
country. She conducted her
session at Olympic House in
Queenstown, yesterday.
She initiates planning new
programmes and encourages
boards to revive dormant
programmes, while trying to get
businesses and other entities
involved in the Special
Olympics for funding and other
Berment said the board
training involved looking at
structures, committees,
strategic planning and very
importantly establishing a fund-
raising committee.

She disclosed that a country
would have to stage a National
Games once a year for it to
qualify for a credited
programme. Grants usually come
from the international body for
the development of the athlete.
The Caribbean executive
said it was most important to
get the media involved to
encourage sponsorship and for
public awareness.
Berment was in St Kitts/
Nevis in October and over the
past three years she visited
Grenada, St Vincent & the
Grenadines, Jamaica, Bermuda,
Barbados and the Bahamas. She
will be going to Dominica where

she will also conduct a special
programme with the
indigenous people there.
Benjamin trained some 15
coaches in the Friday's all-day
session at the Cliff Anderson
Sports Hall.
He said the coaches were
all practising coaches so he was
able to go straight to Level II
and complete the certification
programme of theory and,
practical in one day, whereas
the Level I programme would

have taken three days starting
from scratch.
Benjamin, the only person
certifying coaching in Special
Olympics in the region, is
involved in training and
certifying Special Olympics
coaches from Jamaica to
Guyana. He was in the Bahamas
last month, and will start his
rounds again from January in St
Lucia and move on to St Kitts/
He said emphasis was

placed on games management
and event management
because Special Olympics
dealt with persons who were
intellectually challenged and
who may also be physically
Chairman of the
Special Olympics
(Guyana) Haffeez Khan
told Chronicle Sport that
the local body arranged for
the personnel from the
regional body to be here.

TOM and I have been in a re-
lationship for well over a year.
We're very much in love, and
we've discussed moving in to-
gether more than a few
times. We are both 19-year-
old college students, have no
siblings, and come from
single-parent homes.
My mother and I
have a fairly strong
relationship; our fam-

my mother, Tom -
and I have put a
lot of thought into
moving in to-
gether, and we are
currently trying
to rent a

mother is okay
with the idea.
When I told
my mother, she
said it would
shame her family,
and I would be
no better than a
whore. I told her
she should allow me to make
my own choices. She said she
does not approve, would no
longer give me money, and hung
up the phone. I am on full fi-
nancial aid from school, and the
only financial help she gives is

occasional spending money.
Afterwards I cried for
hours, and when I told Tom,
he said I should do what feels
the most comfortable. I really

truth about dead

Cofssa to I ale an wasco icta fr asluli

IN 1967, 15-year old Edwin'
rjune and seven-year-old
Doodpersaud, cow-minders
were last seen together
rounding up cattle in the
White Koker area, on the
East Coast of Demerara.
Arjune returned home alone
After Doodpersaud was re-
ported missing, Arjune joined
search party for the child who
was subsequently found dead
the following day in a canal near
to the koker.
When questioned by the
Police, Edwin made two stateLI
ments. Firstly, he said,
"Doodpersaud was climbing up
the koker and he fell and hit his
head on boards. He was seri-,
ously injured. I did not go to his O
assistance through fear of be-
coming involved."
Secondly, 'he confessed
that he had struck the
boy with a stick causing him to
fall in the canal.
But that confession was
not made until Edwin's stepfa-
ther who was at the station dur-
ing the questioning by the po-

ice intervened and said to his
stepson: "You lie; I don't be-
lieve you. You better speak the
Following this confession,
Edwin Arjune was charged with
murder. But at his trial, the jury
found him 'guilty of the lesser
count of manslaughter.
Because of his age, he was
ordered toPbe detained at the
Essequibo Boys' School for two
rThe; decision was, ap
X pealed. The appeal was
heard by tie Guyana Court of
Appeal, constituted by Chan-*
cellor Edward Luckhoo, and
Justices bf Appeal Guya
Persaud and Victor Crane.
The appellant was repre-
sented by Attorney-at-law, Mr.
D. 0. Boston. Mr. J. C.
Gonsalves-Sabola, the then As-
sistant Director of Public Pros-
ecutions, appeared for the
The arguments at the ap-
pellate court were based on sub-
missions and allegations that at
the jury trial, the judge had

ered by!admitting inadmissible
elidenc in that the appellant
was induced to make a confes-
sion which was used to convict
The! Appellate Court, how-
ever, overruled the submissions
by appIllant's counsel, dis-
missed the appeal and affirmed
the conviction and sentence.
The facts of the case dis

lant, the deceased and four oth-
ers, all aged between seven-and-
a-half and 17 years, were tend-
ing to some cows in a pasture
during the morning of August
17, 1967. Some of the animals
trespassed on a neighboring
rice field. The appellant, the.de-
ceased and another left to round
them up. The two former left
the latter at a certain point and
proceeded onward.
Some time later, the appel-
lant returned alone, and when
asked by the other about the
deceased's whereabouts, replied
that he did not know.
A search proved futile, and

father, the appellant was
questioned by Sgt. Moses, at
the police station, with a .view
to determining whether he knew
anything of the child's death.
No arrest was contemplated.
The appellant made two writ-
ten statements, within 20 :min-
utes of each other, both of which
.were recorded by the sergeant,
and signed by him in the pres-
ence, of Arjune's stepfather.
The first statements was
not under caution, and
was in standard English. Besides
narrating. the facts already
stated, their appellant said that,
as they were returning with: the,
strays, the deceased climbed up
on a koker, fell down and struck
his head on some boards below,
and was seriously hurt. He ur-

admission of the paraphrased

after the appellant's stepfather
had questioned him and stated
that he did not believe what he
had said in the first statement.
It was then that the stepfa-
ther counselled the appellant
that he had better tell the po-
lice the truth. As a result, the
second statement was made.
The trial judge admitted
both statements, and eventually,
the appellant was found guilty
of manslaughter. The main con-
tention in the. appeal, the appel-
late Court said, was that the trial
judge erred when he .admitted
the statements.

Pronouns refer back to something that has al-
ready been mentioned in a piece of writing.
They can refer back to:
a) A word like: a noun or another pronoun
b) A group of words, a phrase
c) An idea.

Can you now put into your own words why we
use pronouns? Okay, we use pronouns to avoid
repeating things. It is important to make sure
that the reader understands exactly what each
pronoun refers to.
There are several different types of pronoun, but
some of the commonest are personal pronouns.
Personal Pronouns
Personal pronouns. are used instead of the
names of people and things. They are:

I/me she/her it
we/us he/him they/them

Multiplication of Decimals
We'll go back to decimals before going onward to
working with shapes and figures within the next two

One great advantage of decimals is the ease with
which they can be multiplied or divided by 10, 100,
1000, etc. Today we will include decimal multiplica-
Multiplication is now brought in that you will not
lose sight of cancellation. Do not forget cancellation!

Example 1:
Multiply 3.75 by 10
This is really (3 X 10) + (0.75 X 10)
This will give 30 + 7.50 which is equal to 37.50
Look again
3.7X 10
(3 X 10) + (0.7 X 10)

30 +(7 X+j

Example 2:
There are some steps in this example that are in-
cluded for those who need it. You know yourself.
Don't you?

67.87 X 10
(67 X 10) + (0.87 X 10)
670 + (87/100 X 10)

670 + (87 X -O-1)

670+ 87/10
670 + 8.7

The shorter way is this way. After a time you will
not need so many steps.

67.87 X10
(67 X 10) + (0.87 X 10)
670+ 8.70

Example 3:
67 X .87
Disregard all decimal points and multiply as if they
were all whole numbers when you understand the con-
cept properly. Then put in the point after.
6.7 X .87

X 87

Now count up the total number of figures follow-
ing the decimal point in both numbers (i.e. 1 + 2 + 3).
Look at the multiplication (the product), count this total
number of figures from the right (3) and insert the
decimal point. The product is then 5.829

Watching her set Mrs.
Brath's mind a-wondering.
Now in her late 50s, she re-

looked and got on like Marcia.

Her husband Calvin would
be there with their children.
They didn't have a car then. The
little Morris Minor would come
in the 1960s. They would walk
down the gap with their towels
and carrying sandwiches in the
big round tins that used to hold
toffees. An enameled bowl with
cucumbers and pears covered
with wax paper. Mangoes and
some bottle of JU-C soft drinks.
All carried in those "fancy"
baskets made from woven ma-
terial off the palm tree.
She couldn't swim and
Calvin would hold her in his
arms while the children played
in the waves near the shore. And
they would eat the mangoes in
the sea.
Back at home, everybody
would rinse off in the backyard
and then settle down for a good
Sunday dinner. If it was bank
holiday, maybe it would be left-
overs of chicken filling, maca-
roni and cheese and things like
that. Come Christmas time,
there was black pudding and
souse, done the Bajan way, and
turkey and potato salad. Port
wine too.
The kitchen was covered
with the spanking new linoleum.
Every year, the Brathwaithe
family bought one. The material

stanza in an exercise book that Trevor hoped to submit to the
National Independence Festival of Creative Arts:
"Christmas time comes once a year
But you know I did love you all year long
The tribulations did get so bad to bear
Only God was there to keep we strong."

She often wondered how Marcia fixed her pressed hair in dif-
j ferent styles. Mrs. Brath touched her own plaited hair, now flecked
with grey at the front, as she remembered how she liked the one
Diana Ross of the Supremes used to have.
But what was she worrying about anyway? thought Mrs.
Brath. She was getting too old now to think about styles. Calvin
wasn't long in his grave. There were things to do about the house.
And didn't the pastor at the prayer meetings at the Everlasting
Church of God, Scientist and Redeemer (Brooklyn, N.Y., Incorpo-
y rated), down by the main road, tell her one day to stand firm against
e rs the temptations of the flesh and call on him if she needed any help?
In the hallway, Mrs. Brath fixed the Christmas cards hanging
on the strings. They covered up her notes on the wall telling the
roomers not to slam the front door so hard and not to play loud
music. But that was okay because the cards would soon be coming
The cards were straight now with the big expensive ones with
the velvet mounds and designs which she had received from the
children in England right in the centre.
The old-time friends of the family sent cards too. "To let you
know they still living, that's all, because you never see any of them
all year. I don't want to see them anyway."
Back by the living room window, Mrs. Brath hoped Marcia
wouldn't drop too much hair on the floor. It may bum spots in the
Snew linoleum. Even though it was back breaking work, she had
mopped it every day since it came two weeks ago. And the two
other Guyanese roomers, McCalmon and Deonarine always cook-
ing bareback in the kitchen and letting the fat fly out of the pan

Shaz Ally turns labour of love into successful web business

By Ruel Johnson

SHAZAAM Ally is a tall,
slightly chubby twenty-year-
old. He is quiet spoken, un-
assuming, and prone at times
to a certain self-conscious-
ness; and although he
doesn't quite look what we
might expect the typical com-
puter geek might look like -
think bespectacled Bill Gates
- Shaz is the driving force
one of the hottest new
Guyanese-run, Guyana-
themed websites,

In a brief interview with the
Sunday Chronicle, Shaz said
that he first started using com-
puters when he was about 12
years old, Within a year of this
- by today's standards rela-
tively late beginning, he was al-
ready hooked on the Internet,
not so much as a surfer but as
one of the few millions of vir-
tual architects who make the
World Wide Web what it is to-
day. S.haz.was determined to be
a website developer.
He said that he first started
out by building a couple of per-
sonal websites using the basic

Microsoft FrontPage HTML
Editor. HTML, or Hyper-Text
Markup Language, is the com-
puter programming language in
which the source codes for
most \ebsites are w rinen. Shaz,
then uploaded those sites to
Angelfire.com, a popular free
hosting website that is, a
websile whuch gives u.ers a lim-
ited space to host their own per-
sonal sites with the only draw-
back being a few pop-up ads
every now and then, plus the
fact that the hosts' main website
is always attached.
When he felt that his were

up to scratch, what he did. was
to take out an ad in the classi-
fled pages of this paper. One
company bit and before he
could sa) "gigabyte" Shaz was
in business setting up websites
for several reputable entities.
Creating an online presence
for other people wasn't his big
dream though. Shaz Ally
wanted a.place of his own, one
which he would create from
scratch and have far more con-
trol of.
"I wanted to create some-
thing like an online theme park,"
Shaz told the Sunday Chronicle,

"somewhere that people could
go and do a lot of different

That was several years ago.
Following setback after setback,
Shaz recruited his younger sib-.
lings Sheik and Shanz and
finally one year ago,
GuyanaPalace.com was
As it currently stands, the
GuyanaPalace.com that Shaz,
Sheik and Shanaz have built is
currently less of a virtual theme
park than say a giant virtual

liming spot. Why? A theme park
features a muliipliciry of activi-
ties which the user experiences
but usually has very little con-
trol of: rides, horror houses,
GuyanaPalace.com is one
big virtuall hangout spot
where dozens of young
people are signed in at any

what U need to know!

The Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) is a Constitutional body
established by Constitution (Amendment) (No. 2) Act No. 11 of 2002
which amends Article 212 of the Constitution to provide for the
establishment of an Ethnic Relations Commission.

Its functions which are set out in Article 212D of the Constitution are all
embracing and are divided into twenty-four (24) categories which can be
further grouped as: Investigative, Conflict Resolution, Education and
PublicAwareness and Research and Development Strategies.

The genesis of the ERC lies in the Herdmanston Accord signed on
January 17, 1998 that provided for the establishment of a Constitution
Reform Commission (CRC).

Among the matters to be addressed by the CRC were measures and
arrangements for the improvement of race relations in Guyana including
the contribution which equal opportunities legislation and concepts
drawn from the CARICOM Charter of Civil Society, could contribute to the
cause of justice, equity and progress in Guyana.

The CRC was composed and in its Report to the National Assembly on
July 17, 1999, recommended that the Constitution shall establish an
adequately-funded, suitably broad-based Ethnic Relations Commission
(ERC) comprising representatives of religious bodies, the labour
movement, the private business sector, youth and women.

The entities of each group identified one Nominee and one Substitute to
serve as their representatives on the Ethnic Relations Commission and
on March 8,2002 the ERC was established.

The ERC is a non-political body established to promote ethnic
harmony and security in Guyana. Among its twenty-four (24) functions
listed in Article 212D are:
(b) provide for equality of opportunity between persons of different ethnic
groups and to promote harmony and good relations between such
(j) investigate complaints of racial discrimination and make
recommendations on the measures to be taken if such complaints are
valid, and where there is justification therefore refer matters to the Human
Rights Commission or other relevant authorities for further action to be
(m) promote equal access by persons of all ethnic groups to all public or
other services and facilities provided by the Government or other bodies.

Public education and awareness form a major component of the ERC's
work programme.

We believe that an informed and educated society is more predisposed to
tolerate, respect and accommodate the diverse cultures, religions and
ethnicities that constitute the Guyanese society.

It is the responsibility of each citizen to ensure that neither race, religion,
place of origin, class nor colour is used to divide the Guyanese people.

a harsh and unfavourable review
of GuyanaPalace.com, an ap-
peal a virtual directive in fact
- from Shaz started a heated fo-
rum debate on which the vast
majority of posts were over-
whelmingly in support of Shaz.
And that community is
growing phenomenally. At the
time of what might be re-
ferred to as the infamous
GuyanaPalace.com vs. Week-
end Confidential Battle,
there were around 7,500 reg-
istered users on the site. To-
day, just a few weeks after,
there are 10,000 registered
For Shaz, his greatest sense
of achievement comes not from
the, fact that he is barely 20, but
from the fact that what he and
his siblings have done has all
been undertaken during long
hours at their Barrack Street,
Kingston, Georgetown Guyana
home. For him, the most com-
pelling text anywhere on the
website is a little box on the
right just at the bottom of the
home page which reads simply,

looking than it was say two
months ago, a large part of
GuyanaPalace.com could look
better just to add form to what
is undoubtedly excellent func-
Better graphics or rather,
graphics better suited to fit the
site's popularity is going to
call for greater bandwidth and
that is going to call for far more
money than the $30,000 or so
that the Ally kids personally
put into the site from their own
hard-earned cash.
Currently, Shaz is advertis-
ing online for a part-time adver-
tising agent, someone who is go-
ing to try to get companies to
take out paid ads on the site. It
is uncertain whether Guyanese
companies are tech-savvy
enough to understand how
GuyanaPalace.com with its
10,000 registered users can help
their business. Some local sites
which are a bit more aestheti-
cally advanced than the Palace
- the phenomenal, trailblazing
GTVibes.com for example, or
newcomer HitsandJams.com -
seem to have no problem in
gaining sponsors who are ready
to tap into the niche market
these sites offer, the entertain-
ment crowd.
No doubt
GuyanaPalace.com has a large

niche market, but the site's mere
size and complexity and its pre-
vious shortcomings in the
graphics aspect, may act as de-
terrents for potential advertis-
ers. Hence Shaz and Co have a
Catch-22 situation on their
hands: in order to make the site
they truly want, they need ad-
vertising money, but in order to
get that money they need to
have the site that they truly
want up and running in order to
entice advertisers.
What whomever
GuyanaPalace.com hires as its
.advertising/marketing agent is
going to have to do is to con-
vince companies that posting an
ad on the website is not a leap
of faith but a potential goldmine
of an investment, with its enor-
mous and dedicated user-base,
and lots of return appeal. Also
Shaz says he is currently in the
process of building a
d o w n 1 o a d a b le
GuyanaPalace.com Messenger,
like the popular Yahoo or MSN
messengers. This is just part of
what he envisions for a Version
4 of the Palace.
At a press conference held
last week after his return from
overseas, President of Guyana
Bharrat Jagdeo said that as a
measure to focus more on Infor-
mation and Communications
Technology, he was planning to
host an ICT Conference early in

are going to be overseas

ers, the conference is go-
ing to be a youth-
centred one with young

SUNDAY CHRONICLE December 4, 2005

I got up, well aware of stiffness and bruises, but
not for anything worse. She seemed able to see
better in the gloom than I could, and took my
hand, to lead the way. We kept to the trees, but
I could see the fires twinkling on my left, and re-
alized that we were skirting the encampment We
kept on round it until we reached the low cliff that
clothed the north-west side, and then along the
base of that, in the shadow, for fifty yards or so.
There she stopped, and laid my hand on one of
the rough ladders I had seen against the rock

"Follow me," she whispered, and suddenly
whisked upwards.
I climbed more cautiously until I reached the top
of the ladder where it rested against a rock ledge. Her
arm reached out and helped me in.

"Sit down," she told me.

The lighter patch through which I had come disap-
peared. She moved about looking for something.
Presently there were sparks as she used a flint and
steel. She blew up the spark until she was able to
light a pair of candles. They were short, fat, burnt with
smoky flames, and smelt abominably, but they enabled
me to see the surroundings.

The place was a cave about fifteen feet deep and
nine wide, cut out of a sandy rck. The entrance was
covered by a skin curtain ho64ked across it. In one
comer of the inner end there Was a flaw in the roof
from which water dripped st-dily at about a drop a
second. It fell into a wooden ticket; the overflow of
the bucket trickled down a grove for the full length
of the cave, and out of the en dance. In the other in-
ner comer was a mattress of smll branches, with skins
and a tattered blanket on it. T ere were a few bowls
and utensils. Ablackened fire-fl low near the entrance,
empty now, showed an ingenu us draught-hole drilled
to the outer air. The handles o1| few knives and other
tools protruded from niches .i, the walls. A spear, a
bow, a leather quiver with a"ozen arrows in it, lay
close to the brushwood matters. There was nothing
much else.

....... Sophie dipped a bow into the bucket, rum-
maged a fairly clean bit of out of a niche, and
brought it across to me. She washed the blood off
my face and out of my hair, a exa the cause.

"Just a cut Not deep." shelaid, reassuringly.
(From John Wyndham's Chrysalids)

Ask yourself the follow questions and make
sure that you answer them prerly.
1. Write the description inmyur own words for an
interested friend.
2. There is talk about feats of the surroundings
such as: encampment, rock fac", sandy rock, and cave.
Exactly what is each about?
3. Have you ever tried such setting before in any
of your writing efforts? Read up some more about
such surroundings and try them. Guyana offers some
such environmental features in its highland areas, you

4. Is the language suited to the characters of the
story? Tell each other how it is fitted.
6. What makes you want (or not want) to continue
reading more of the story?
7. Read the passage as many times as possible and
write a short story based on it. Pay attention to the
finer details of setting.
Personal Note: What have you mastered well in
your writing so far? Check and come up with a fair
answer, and then resolve to add more skills to improve
reader-interest. -


Write a story based on the picture below.

Let it be approximately 400 to 500 words in length.

You must write in Standard English.

Tailor your writing style to suit your audience. For
example: When you write for a young audience, use
simple sentences and easy-to-understand vocabulary.
Use adjective clauses to create variety in sentence

An adjective clause is a subordinate clause that
modifies a noun or pronoun. For example: We have
a cat named Jennifer.

An adjective clause that is not needed to make
the meaning of a sentence clear is set off by commas.
Pay attention to what was just said: An adjective
clause that is not needed to make the meaning of a
sentence clear is set off by commas.

Add an adjective clause to each sentence below,
using correct punctuation.
1. My sister Theresa keeps a diary.
2. He writes a lot about children and about cats.
3. Sometimes Leslie also writes for the school pa-
4. James wrote a great recipe about how to make
chocolate moose cake.
5. The school canteen chef wants him to do a fea-
ture story about beating the bulge.

An adjective clause usually follows the word it

The horror story that has always been Johnny's

favourite is "The Fierce turkey."

The writer whom my brother likes best is Penny

I like a writer who thrills me.

Adjective clauses may be introduced by the rela-
tive pronouns (who, whom, whose, that, and which)
and by the subordinating conjunctions where and

The Elisabethan Age spans the time when
Elisabeth 1 ruled.
That is the shop where I bought the cake.

At times the relative pronoun is dropped at the be-
ginning of an adjective clause.
This is a story even science enthusiasts should
read. [The relative pronoun that has been omitted.]
Find the adjective clause that appears in each of
the following sentences. Then write the word that the
clause modifies.

1. Samuel Rodney Thomas wrote stories under a
pseudonym, which is another word for a pen name.
2. Thomas, who lived from 1902 to 1984, used the
pseudonym A. Penny.
3. Thomas contributed a number of articles to a:
humour magazine, which he had founded in Bridgeton
in 1958.
4. He wrote a daily column that was humorous and;
5. As A. Penny, Thomas published many stories;"
that were sympathetic and touching.
6. He created unusual plots that ended in surpris-
ing ways.
7. The Six Diamonds, which is a collection of A:.
Penny's short stories, was published in the year 1976.
8. "The Power of Love" is a story that many people
9. Another A. Penny work that is very popular is
"The Frightened Cat."
10. Readers who enjoy the unusual and the humor-
ous will delight in the short stories of A. Penny.

Make verbs agree with nouns of amount.

The verb that follows a noun of amount is plural if
the noun refers to many individual units: Almost thir-
teen hundred bolts of brass enter the chests of the tool.
shop each year.

The verb is singular if the noun refers to one single
unit: Thirteen hundred bolts is a lot.

Complete each sentence below by writing thekor-
rect form of the verb in parenthesis.

on construction-type toys.
2. One-and-a-half tool boxes (was, were) full of'
3. Five weeks (is, are) a long time to spend gath-

SUNDY CHO~iLE ,Decmber4, 005 XII



ONCE again it is that time of
the year when we will be hav-
ing lots of fun eating, drink-
ing, giving and receiving of

gifts. Those gifts will all be
wrapped in excess gift wrap-
ping material that will even-
tually create more waste ma-
terials. But remember to be
responsible when disposing
of all the waste which will be
generated during this sea-
son. Just remember your en-
vironment will say a lot about
you because when all the fes-
tivity is over, you will still be
living in the same environ-
ment. So whatever you do will
determine the state of that
"environment, something
which only you can decide.
This week's article will help
you to reduce the amount of
waste you generate during this

The word Christmas comes
from the old English 'Cristes
Maesse' meaning Christ's Mass.
The holiday celebrates the birth
of Jesus Christ. The first men-
tion of the birthday of Jesus is
from the year 354 AD.
Traditionally, Christmas

Day is the day for opening gifts
brought by 'Jolly old St.
Nichlous'. The carolling, the
gifts, the feast, and the wishing
of good cheer all these ingre-
dients came together to create
that special Christmas atmo-
The custom of gift-giving on.
Christmas goes back to ancient
Roman festivals. The very first
gifts were simple items such as
twigs from a sacred grove as
good luck emblems. This then
escalated to food, small items of
jewellery, candles, and statues
of gods.
During the last century, the
focus of Christmas has shifted
towards shopping and has be-
come more materialistic. Christ-
mas in the 21" century, has be-
come an occasion where large
quantities of money are rou-
tinely spent on-gifts for friends
and family.
This mass consumption
does not come without costs.
The World Wildlife Fund's Liv-
ing Planet Report 2000 calcu-
lated that human impact on the
environment, which has in-
creased by 50 per cent during
the last 30 years, is now 30 per
cent more than the planet can
sustainably handle. This mas-
sive "ecological footprint" is
largely driven by personal pos-
sessions. Material goods the
things of which Christmas pre-
sents are made require en-
ergy and materials in produc-
tion, transportation and dis-
During the five weeks lead-
ing up to Christmas and New
Year's Day, quantities of garbage
increase by approximately one
million tons per week!
Worldwide. In fact, 38,000
miles of ribbon alone is thrown
out each year enough to tie a

bow around the Earth!

Place excess amounts of
oil and grease from holiday
cooking and cleaning in collec-
tion containers, scrape oil 'and
grease off of kitchen'utensils and,
equipment, and keep grease out
of wash water. Never pour oil
and grease down;the drain as
this causes water pollution, and
avoid using hot water to wash
the grease away,.from sub-
S Avoid placing food scraps
such as turkey bones, potato
;peels and celery down the
drain. Potato peels swell when
wet, so this will block the drain.
Plan meals wisely and prac-
tice portion control. If faced
with leftovers, place them in
plastic containers or bags and
send them home with guests or

Be prudent and practical as

well as thoughtful and creative.
Purchase gifts that are long-last-
ing or that can be reused and
later recycled. If an item has
several layers of paper and plas-
tic packaging, choose a similar
product that leaves less waste.
Purchase items made of natural
materials like wood rather than
plastic. Better yet, choose items
made from recycled materials.
Second-hand or antique shops
are great places to do holiday
shopping. Consider giving gift
certificates or tickets for ser-
vices or special events, rather

than purchasing an item that
may not be used or needed.
Use cloth napkins, silver-.
ware, glass drinking cups and
ceramic coffee mugs, and reus-
able plates rather than dispos-
able plastic, styrofoam or paper
at holiday parties. Rent party
furnishings rather than buying
things you will only use once a
year. Reuse plastic margarine
tubs or yogurt containers to
store holiday leftovers.
Some communities recycle
Christmas trees chipping and
mulching them for compost or
landscaping materials. Trees
must be free of tinsel, decora-
tions, nails, tacks or any other
foreign materials. Check with
your town office to see if a tree
recycling program exists in your
area. Recycle tree trunks for fire-
wood or split for kindling. Use
branches as mulch underside-

as rhododendrons or evergreens.

Compost your kitchen food

parties. Remember compost
fruit and vegetable wastes only,

not meat or grease.
Save your holiday decorations

dried flowers or berries.

A DOG or a cat can be sub-
jected to many different
types of burns. Burns are
quite distinct from heat
stroke, a subject which we

will deal with later.
The amount of damage done
to the skin depends on the ex-
isting conditions. For example,
the length of time the burning

agent is allowed to act on the
skin will surely define the level
of injury to the skin. Also, in
the case of a chemical bum, the
concentration of the acid will
define the intensity of the burn.
Of course, the age of the animal
as well as its general health sta-
tus will determine if and to what
degree the animal will react and

possibly succumb.
Burns in animals are not
quite like the burns we experi-
ence in humans, even when the
cause of the bum is the same.
A first degree burn affecting
only the surface of the skin will
cause some degree of reddening
and discomfort. Usually, in ani-
mals, no blisters develop, except
in the pig the animal which
has so many human character-
istics. Almost on all occasions,
if there is a burn there will be a
resulting swelling of the skin.
In cases of a second degree
burns (a moderately severe
burn) in animals, the skin swells
considerably oedemaa). Small
vesicles (blisters) may form.

spot on which it, as comfortably
as possible, has placed itself.
Sloughing of the skin usually
occurs, exposing raw painful ar-
eas, with a lot of fluid (serum
exudates). This in itself is a
problem, because the fluid con-
tains protein. This means that
the animal, in addition to losing
fluid (dehydration), is losing
valuable and much-needed nutri-
tive material especially at this
time of stress. If this protein/
fluid loss on the burnt skin sur-
face is too great, the animal can
collapse in a state of shock.
It is of great importance to
try to prevent a secondary in-
fection from taking hold on the
burnt area. In sever burns, I
