Sleeping pilot!
TOKYO (Reuters) A pilot for Japan's All Nippon
Airways fell asleep at the controls for several minutes
while on a domestic flight and had to be awakened by
a government inspector who was travelling in the
cockpit
A spokesman for the airline said on Friday that the 50-
year-old pilot, whose name was not released, dozed off while
flying on March 23 from Tokyo's Haneda airport to the
western prefecture of Yamaguciu. a trip that takes about an
hour.
An official from the Transport Ministry, who was in
the cockpit for a routine inspection, woke the pilot after
he fell asleep as the plane was cruising at 12.000 meters
(36,000 feet), but he dozed off again and had to be awakened
a second time.
"He was asleep for two or three minutes." the
spokesman said.
The spokesman said there was no danger to passengers
since the plane was on auto-pilot and the co-pilot was also
present. The pilot, who has been suspended, is undergoing
medical tests
Last year, a Japanese bullet train driver fell asleep
at the controls while his train was traveling at 270 km
(168 miles) an hour. He was found to suffer from sleep
apnea, in which a person repeatedly stops breathing
during sleep, causing daytime drowsiness.

Work towards unified



Trades Union Movement


- President Jagdeo urges leaders


(GINA) Workers have a
desire to be united and union
leaders have a critical role to
play in ensuring that there is
a unified labour movement
in Guyana.
This sentiment was


expressed by President Bharrat
Jagdeo to the media yesterday
following his participation in
the May Day observances
around the City.
"I see a deep, desire among
the workers to be united. They
are in a good mood. I am sure


they would like to have a
unified trade union movement in
Guyana. It is up to the leaders
of the Movement to ensure this
happens," the President said.
The Head of State, in
wishing everyone a happy
Labour Day pointed out that


Guyana needs collaboration at
the political, community,
industrial and every other level
and that has been his
administration's approach. He
noted that Government also
encourages this at the
Government/Trade Union level.

Commenting on the
potential for unifying the trade
union movement in Guyana, the
President said there is some
degree of unity, but it needs to
be improved. He noted that
there are some leaders within
the movement who can aid the
process, and called on others to
do the same.
"I think they (workers)
have leaders of foresight who
have been working at this, but
there are others who have been
a detriment and have not been
living up to the expectations of
workers and this had been
affecting trade union unity," he
said.
The Guyanese leader took
time off from his busy schedule
to join the May Day
celebrations with various unions.
First, he attended the
Guyana Agricultural Workers
Union (GAWU) May Day rally
held at the NIS Sports Club
ground, Carifesta Avenue. Then
he stopped at the Guyana Postal
and Telecommunication
Workers Union May Day event
I IIN.


engaged in light conversation
with workers.
The President wrapped up
his participation in May Day
events at Callinon Hall on
Lombard Street.
Housing and job grievances
were among the concerns
workers at the different venues
raised with the President. He
has undertaken to address those
concerns at a later date.
May Day has its origin in
the 19th Century in 1865
when a group of workers
struggled for better conditions
of work at a market square in
the United States.
In 1890, at the second
International in Paris an
international group of workers
designated May 1 ag Labour
Day.
In Guyana, struggling
workers first observed this
day in 1958. The then
Minister of Labour, former
President Mrs. Janet Jagan
was instrumental in
recognizing this day and
giving support to workers.

Rallying calls for unity



at May Day observances


AS WORKERS observed
another Labour Day with a
split among the unions,
speakers at rallies
throughout the country
yesterday lamented the
erosion of solidarity in the
labour movement and called
for workers' unity to boost
the nation's development
thrust.
While the workers, most
attired in red tops and dark-
coloured bottoms, and bearing
placards, marched through the
streets of Georgetown in the
traditional May Day parade,
they split and went to separate
venues for rallies.
Workers who marched
under the bauiner of The
Guyana Agricultural Workers
Union, proceeded to the
National Insurance Scheme
(NIS) Sports Club ground on
'Carifesta Avenue, for a rally
held under-the theme 'Towards
Workers' Security, Peace and
Progress". Those who marched
with the umbrella body, Guyana
Trades Union Congress
(GTUC), went to the Critchlow
Labour College. Workers
represented by the Clerical and
Commercial .Workers Union
(CCWU) ended up at the
Union's headquarters, Clerico
House on Quamina Street.
GAWU has been boycotting
GTUC rallies in protest against
the manner in which the former
is being administered,
particularly on the issue of the
method of allocation of
delegates to the annual
conference. Under the method in
question, small unions field
more delegates, despite the fact
that GAWU is the largest union
in Guyana and the English-
speaking Caribbean. GAWU's
membership exceeds 25 000
workers.
"Can there be any joy in
experiencing the erosion of
solidarity in our local labour
movement," questioned Guyana
Agricultural Workers Union
(GAWU) President, Komal
Chand.
In similar vein, GTUC
President, Mr. Carvil Duncan
charged that it is "high time"
that the movement undertakes
some introspection "to maintain
the moral right to lead."
"That the unity of workers
is sacrificed on the altar of
expediency and mortgaged to
political causes must alarm us.
That all the sheep are not in the

'That we are marching on different roads to different

through the same channels that
brought the Movement the
services of leaders as Andrew
Garnett, Lincoln Lewis, Carvil
Duncan and other great leaders
of the past.
"The TUYM believes this
is an opportune time to
display the level of unity that
would inspire national unity
and cohesion. It appears
reasonable to accept that the
likelihood of political unity
is remote if it is elusive at
the level of the trade unions.
The correlation between
trade union unity and
political unity is indisputable
in Guyana, despite the
denials we may have from

"In the process, we as a
movement must display the
required fortitude to be
concessionary, to be
reconciliatory, to be innovative,
and to be inclusive as we call
upon others to do the same. It
may be in the interest of some
to ensure that the disagreement
in the Movement remain
unresolved. There are those who
are happy today in seeing their


united Trades Union
Movement," Duncan said.
And, pointing out that the
youths are "confused" by the
division in the movement,
General Secretary of the Guyana
Trades Union Youth Movement
(TUYM) Franklin Wilson said:
"Trade union unity is
paramount, and the level of
unity desired for sustained
progress must be obtained

CCWU, Grantley
Culbard told the
Chronicle yesterday
that his union wanted to
send a clear signal to the
GTUC, and hence, did
not participateinthe
laUer's rally.
"We have to learn from our
past- TUC will break up again
reflecting on the attitude of its
leaders," he warned.
Despite the obvious lack of
unity. Chand took the
opportunity yesterday to greet
and salute "the thousands of
union members and all workers
throughout the length and breath
of Guyana on this May Day or
more precisely, the First of
May. the international festival
of the working class
movmen"
Today, we are celebrating
the First of May with hundreds
of thousands of workers in the
world in more than 100
countries (but) some countries
due to the authoritarian rule,
workers are not permitted to
celebrate this day," Chand told
the gathering.
While noting that conditions
of people throughout the world
are under severe threat, Chand
pointed out that political
oppression and violation of
sovereignty of nations have
become the order of the day.
"We feel that political
dialogue and constructive
engagement to create
constructive compromise anti
accommodation must always be
welcomed between those who
represent us, both in
Government and Opposition,"


he posited.
Noting that the structured
consultations locally between
President Bharrat Jagdeo and the
Opposition Leader, Mr. Robert
Corbin have been suspended,
Chand urged that "we take heart
in noting that the Opposition
Leader has proposed widening
the engagement to include other
representatives and interests".
"GAWU feels that, when
properly structured, there may
be hope in that suggestion," he
said. He, however, hastened to
add that the unions hope "this
is not another ruse to hoodwink
the Guyanese people" since the
"fits and starts that are
associated with dialogue send
their signals to us, workers, and
raise questions but we will
encourage the efforts at genuine
dialogue as we see them as
positive and beneficial to the
well-being of our nation."
The speakers at the
different rallies also
addressed issues of
globalisation and the local
economy, job creation and the

Castro vows Cuban socialism

Anthony Boadleill survive Bush Castro'sgovernment.
VA. (Reuters) Cuban Willsurvive-usaCastro maintained tl

President Fidel Castro yes-
terday dismissed Bush ad-
ministration plans to speed
up political change in Cuba
and said his government in
power since 1959 will con-
tinue building a socialist so-
ciety at the U.S. doorstep.
Castro said Cuba had sur-
vived the antagonism of the
world's most powerful nation
for 45 years and will continue
to resist.
"This revolution will leave
a lasting mark in world history


that Cuban Americans can send
their families in Cuba, from
$300 to $150 a quarter. The re-
mittances are estimated to total
$1B a year, a vital inflow of
cash for Castro's economically-
battered government.
Castro said the Bush admin-
istration was threatening steps
to undermine Cuba's economy
and destabilise the country.
"To those who persist in
destroying the Revolution, in


the name of the immense multi-
tude gathered here, I truly say
to them, as at other decisive
moments of our struggle: 'Long
Live Socialism', 'Fatherland or
Death,' 'Venceremos' (We shall
overcome)," Castro said in clos-
ing his speech.
Cuba last year rounded up
75 dissidents and jailed them for
terms of up to 28 years. They
were accused of conspiring with
the United States against


tigues, spoke for almost two
hours under a scorching sun.
His brother and designated suc-
cessor Raul Castro attended,
also wearing a military uniform.
Castro accused the United
States of committing "genocide"
and said peace in Iraq was not
possible until American troops
withdrew.
Washington had no right to
criticise Cuba in the U.N. Hu-
man Rights Commission when
the United States had built a
"horrendous prison" for
alleged al Qaeda militants
at the U.S. naval base in
Guantanamo Bay where
some 600 prisoners are
being held without trial or
legal rights, he said.
Authorities said more
4t. than one million people
S attended the labour rally.
Cubans were driven to
the square in buses from
their work places at 6 am.
Many wore red T-shirts
and waved Cuban flags.
A Committee for a
Free Cuba appointed by
President George W.
Bush had until yesterday
to hand the White House
a set of recommendations
for speeding up a post-
Castro transition to de-
mocracy in Cuba.
Miami's Spanish-language
newspaper, El Nuevo Herald,
reported last week that the 50-
page report includes a proposal
to cut by half the remittances


and has nothing to be ashamed
of," Castro said at a massive
May Day rally in Havana's
Revolution Square.

6 SIIDAY CHRONICLE, May 2, 2004


Elusive labour unity


AHEAD OF yesterday's observance of May Day, the
General Secretary of the Clerical and Commercial Workers
'Union (CCWU), Grantley Culbard, made an appropriate
appeal for the reunification of the country's labour
movement,
Culbard was echoing the sentiment of other trade union
leaders and unions that have also been urging unity within the
ranks of organised labour. Regrettably, those most responsible
for the split in the labour movement remain as obstructionists
to such a desirable development.
Consequently, following the split among unions of the
Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) this year's May Day
was once again observed yesterday as a divided movement for
the second time since the formation of the four-union grouping
of Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana
(FITUG).
Sadly, therefore, there was a repeat of the spectacle of a
much weakened GTUC and the Guyana Agricultural and General
Workers Union (GAWU), the country's single largest union,


having their own May Day activities.
FITUG, which is comprised GAWU, CCWU, NACCIE and
the Guyana Bauxite and General Workers Union, constitutes at
least half of the unionised workers of the entire GTUC
membership. Its legitimacy itself warrants serious responses for
any move at reunification.
Previous efforts by the General Secretary of the Caribbean
- Congress of Labour (CCL), George DePeana, himself a former
General Secretary of the CCWU, to broker a principled
reunification of unions of the labour movement have failed to
bear fruit:"
Nevertheless, we urge FITUG and what remains as the
GTUC to make fresh efforts to heal wounds, resolve differences
and seriously pursue all legitimate means, based on established
practices, to bring about that elusive reunification in the interest
of organised workers and the cooperation and unity Guyana
needs for greater social and economic advancement.
-As the CCWU's Culbard observed, and reported in our
Friday's edition, "a united trade union movement would be fired


with a desire to put the workers' and- Guyana's above a few
selfish interests." He sees the division as being based solely on
political considerations, and said he looks forward to
reunification in the not-too-distant future.
In sharing such a sentiment, this newspaper takes the
opportunity to salute all workers on this May Day
weekend.

GUYANA'S EXPERIENCE
Both Guyana and Belize
have had to wage intense
diplomatic initiatives to
respectively counter attempts
by Venezuela and Guatemala to
block their quest for
independence and subsequent
membership access to the UN
and OAS.
An award
deemed to be a full,'
final and perfect
settlement by an
international tribunal
in 1899 to
Venezuela's claim to
some two thirds of
Guyanese territory,
and rejected by the
Venezuelans, was to
become an issue of
controversy rejected
when Guyana
signalled its
preparations for
independence.
Notwithstanding
a standing
commission of
representatives of the
two neighbours, the
dispute remains
unresolved and
continues to
negatively impact on Guyana's
economic development.
But the current
administration of President
Hugo Chavez has been adopting
a more conciliatory, enlightened
approach in bilateral relations.
In the case of the

years of post-independence

aTIAU, Germany (Reuters) -
Purope celebrated the historic
astward expansion of the Eu-
opean Union yesterday with
prayers, hope and beer after
people in the 10 new member
states partied into the night.
Millions across the former
ommunist East Bloc awoke as
!U citizens and fresh celebra-
ions got under way to mark
that was seen by many as the
final end of the Cold War.
The leaders of Germany,
landd and the Czech Republic
)asted the day in beer at a tri-
ngular border point near the
lerman town of Zittau, where
Ie Iron Curtain divided the
continent from 1945 until the

Id a crowd of thousands in a
eld beside the Neisse river.
Leaders of the 25 EU coun-
ies, representing 455 million
people in the world's biggest
"ading bloc, were to attend a


mit dinner in Dublin later.
A cardinal, a rabbi and an
imam joined in ecumenical
prayers for the united continent
at a service attended by the
presidents of the EU's three
branches of government Irish
Prime Minister Bertie Ahern,
European Commission President
Romano Prodi and European
Parliament President Pat Cox.
"Working together, we will
help to reinforce Europe as an
area united in peace and stabil-
ity, as a force for good in the
world," Ahern told a news con-
ference.
The new Europe faced three
new challenges: to agree on a
constitution to enable the bloc
to work effectively, to fight ter-
rorism, and narrow the wealth
gap in the bigger EU, he said.
For one day, the EU put
aside worries about its growing
pains and routine squabbles over
money, power and fish quotas
to celebrate the achievement of
unity, democracy and stability.
The biggest enlargement
took effect at midnight central
European time, increasing the
bloc's population by 75 million,

National and star-studded
blue EU flags fluttered in towns
and villages across eight central
and east European states that
endured decades of Soviet-
dominated communist rule, and
on the Mediterranean islands of
Cyprus and Malta.
Hundreds of thousands
thronged open-air parties, con-
certs and firework shows from
the Atlantic to the Baltic and
the Mediterranean as the EU
threw open its gates to new
members.
For East Europeans in Po-
land, the Czech Republic,
Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia,
Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania,
enlargement crowns 15 years of
often painful economic reforms
since the collapse of commu-
nist rule.
"Enlargement is great for
young people. It makes it
easier for them to work and
study abroad," said Gusevas
Arturas, 22, a student from
Lithuania studying computer
technology in the German town
of Goerlitz on the Polish bor-

der.
Rejoicing was more muted
in Cyprus after split referen-
dums last Saturday meant the
Greek Cypriot south of the is-
land joins the EU despite reject-
ing a U.N. peace plan, while the
Turkish Cypriot north remains
outside despite voting "yes."
Many East Europeans are
bitter that existing EU states ex-
cept Britain and Ireland have
closed their doors to workers
from new members for up to
seven years, while some West
European media have stoked


fears, dismissed by EU officials,
of mass migration from the east.
"I can see that a lot of Ger-
mans are afraid of it though. I
want to work in Germany be-
cause wages are high here, or
work for a German company in
Lithuania because living costs
are cheap there," Arturas said.
The architects of EU en-
largement waxed emotional as
they saw the political dream for
which they fought so long come
true.
. "We are becoming part of a
good family, one to which we


have been related to for years
but iave been separated from
by ; history," Tadeusz
Maztwiecki, Poland's first non-
communist prime minister after
Solidarity won power in 1989,
told Reuters.
Nearby, some 1,800
hardline nationalists held an
anti-EU demonstration, car-
rying banners comparing the
EU to the former Soviet
Union. In Riga, around

lied to protest for better pro-
tection of their rights.

QC lauds 'Woman of Substance'


By Shirwin Campbell
QUEEN'S College (QC) on
Wednesday bade farewell to
Headmistress Sharon Oonah
Roberts at an impressive Vale-
dictory Ceremony in the
school's auditorium.
The ceremony was held un-
der the theme 'Woman of Sub-
stance'.
Former QC students, heads
and teachers, along with senior
education officials, and head
teachers of other city schools
were among the hundreds who
attended the function to bid fare-
well to Ms. Roberts, who served
the school from March 1997.
The event included numer-
ous glowing tributes and the
presentation of tokens. There
were also songs, dances and
musical renditions from teach-
ers, students, former students,
Ministry of Education officials,
relatives and friends.
Chairman of QC Board of
Governors, Mr. Ronald Alli, in
his tribute pointed to significant
developments during her stew-
ardship. Among them were the


formation of a Board, outstand-
ing achievements at CXC and
GCE examinations and the
award of Best Secondary School
in the Caribbean.
He recalled the difficult
days following the fire which
destroyed part of the school in
1997 and noted that she handled
the situation well and motivated
her staff.
Ms. Gloria Croft, former
classmate of Ms Roberts at
Central High School, noted that
she was privileged to see Ms.
Roberts blossom from a student
of substance into a woman of
substance and described her as
a bright girl in the face of stiff
competition during their high
school years.
Ms. Croft recalled the day
Ms. Roberts got married. She
said when her classmate discov-
ered that the groom had not ar-
rived on time, she simply
laughed and went for a drive.
She took another drive when
she arrived a second time and
the groom still was not there.
The third time around the
groom had arrived.

SHARON OONAH ROBERTS


Ms Roberts' kind, good-na-
tured attitude was echoed in ev-
ery tribute that was made at the
ceremony.
Deputy Education Officer,
Ms. Marlin Jones, hailed Ms.
Roberts' contribution to the de-
velopment of education in
Guyana.
President of the Queen's
College Old Students Associa-
tion (QCOSA), Mr. Laurie
Lewis, brought greetings from
Old Students chapters in
Canada, United States of
America and United Kingdom.
He also shared an experience
with the captive audience about
a case he was tasked with as a
member of the Guyana Police
Force.
According to Mr. Lewis, he
was called to investigate an at-
tempted murder charge. When
he arrived on the scene, he learnt
that a groom-in-waiting was
about to murder his tailor.
The man was Mr. Roberts,
he added, provoking much
laughter from the packed audi-
ence. He never made the arrest,
he confessed.
Her son, Aubrey, speaking
on behalf of the family, noted
that home was a place of re-
search papers, letters and the
marking of test papers.
He added that the manu-
scripts for the Biology Modules
now used across the. Caribbean
were drafted on their dining
table.


He also spoke of her active
church life, her long hours and
weekends at the office and her
efficiency in balancing her re-
sponsibilities with family life.
Her son commended her for
staying in Guyana despite the
many challenges.
Acting Principal, Ms. Gem
Rohlehr, described the outgoing
head as a negotiator, seamstress,
mother, wife, sister, writer and
Minister.
Ms. Rohlehr stated that she
learnt from talking to the Head-
mistress' mother, Mrs. Mavis
Solomon, that from an early age
she showed potential.
The acting principal noted
that as they celebrate another
rite of passage with her, they
look forward to her continued
assistance. It was her wish that
the old doors remain open and
new ones swing open for her.
Responding to all the senti-
ments, Ms. Roberts expressed
her heartfelt gratitude and at-
tributed her qualities to her
mother who was also present at
the ceremony.
"This is a celebration
of good parenting. Mom
worked hard to feed and
clothe us and we had to at-
tend church regularly," she
noted.
She added that her mom
taught her the values of life,

New entertainment


By Shawnel Cudjoe

GUYANA Entertainment
Magazine (GEM) was offi-
cially launched two Thurs-
days ago in the Ministry of
Tourism, Industry and Com-
merce boardroom, with Min-
ister Manzoor Nadir pledging
his support for the venture.
Publisher of the Magazine,
overseas-based Guyanese Mr.
Simeon Corbin, told the media,
that the idea was born two years
ago. after he returned from the
United States and realized that
there was no medium to update
him and many others, on what
was happening in this country.
He said that his first idea
was to publish a booklet, but
he soon realized that such a
publication would not suffice.
According to Corbin, the bi-
monthly magazine shows the


lighter side of Guyana, by
showcasing Guyanese lifestyle,
fashion and places around
Georgetown. He noted that
GEM would not focus on po-
litical, racial and religious issues.
He reported that three thou-
sand copies of the March
Sightseeing and day-to-day ac-
tivities, and four thousand cop-
ies of the first edition were
printed. Only a fourth of the to-
tal was sold, so, this time
around. Corbin said 1 000 less
copies were printed.
In the advertising arena,
Corbin admitted that persons
were skeptical about the type of
magazine that would be pro-
duced, but he informed the me-
dia that after the publication of
the first edition, many advertis-
ers have decided to come on
board.
According to Marketing


magazine
Manager of the GEM, Onika
Beckles, they are hoping that
the magazine will be placed in
hotels and introduced at Trade
Fairs.
"We are trying to go bey ond
the one picture publicity ..nd
highlighting the talents tha' lie
in Guyana," she said; ,
Beckles explained that there
are high hopes for the formation
of a publishing company, to del-
'egate responsibility, as a mean
of ensuring the smooth running
of a magazine that Guyanese can
be proud of.
"The magazine will have
positive information about
Guyana instead of the negative
(information) that is always on

After receiving his copy
of the Magazine, Minister
Nadir said that the venture
was very heartening since the


launched
people involved were young
and trying to make a differ-
ence.
He complimented them on
the layout of the magazine and
the general good quality of the
product, and further noted that
such initiatives need to be sup-
ported. .,nce these are the ideas
that v bring about changes in

noted, however, that the
susLainability of the magazine
would be a challenge and assured
that his Ministry will aid in the
distribution of the magazine and
will contact the GEM crew
whenever there are tourism ac-
tivities countrywide.
Gracing the cover of the
magazine is local designer
Sonia Noel. Noel recently
launched her Male Line of
clothing. The line was fea-
tured in the magazine.


Blair appalled by


Iraq abuse photos

not to do it," Blair told
BBC television.
"I think in fairness, how-
ever, we should say that there
are thousands of British troops
ih Iraq doing a very brave, ex-
traordinary job on behalf of the
kraqi people and on behalf of
our country to make the coun-
try better."
Britain's top General, Sir
Mike Jackson, ordered an in-
quiry.
; "If proven, not only is such
appalling conduct clearly unlaw-
ful, it clearly contravenes the
British army's high standards,"
he said. "If proven, the perpe-
trators are not fit to wear the
Queen's uniform. They have
besmirched the good name of the
army and its honour."
Armed Forces Minister
Adam Ingram called the pictures
"truly appalling and despicable"
if genuine.
The Daily Mirror said it
obtained the photographs
from two unnamed soldiers
in the Queen's Lancashire
Regiment. The soldiers said
the Iraqi man in the pictures
had been detained on suspi-
cion of stealing.
The images come at a
particularly difficult moment
for Blair, who is considering
Sending more troops to Iraq to
blug the hole left by the with-
drawal of Spanish soldiers.
F


His staunch support for
U.S. policy in Iraq has been
a hard sell to a skeptical Brit-
ish public and there are
signs of increasing alarm
within the political establish-
ment. In an unprecedented re-
volt, 52 former senior British
diplomats wrote a letter call-
ing the -U.S.-led policy
"doomed to failure."
Allegations of prisoner
abuse are stinging for Britain,
where commanders pride them-
selves on their troops' skills at
winning hearts and minds and
often say their tactics are less
harsh than those of the Ameri-
cans.
President Bush said he
was disgusted by photo-
graphs shown on CBS news
.this week showing U.S. sol-
diers abusing Iraqi prisoners
held at Abu Ghraib prison, a
notorious centre of torture
under ousted President
Saddam Hussein.
Human' rights group Am-
nesty International said it had
warned U.S. and British authori-
ties in Iraq that captives were
being abused.
The British army is al-
ready investigating eight sol-
diers accused of abusing Iraqi
prisoners, and the U.S. army
has brought criminal charges
against six soldiers relating
to abuses from Ndvember and
December 2003 on 20 de-
tainee

SUIDAY CHRlIICLE, May 2, 2004


~?2~ ci5~


THE Guyana Power & Light
company (GPL) says it will this
weekend begin the process to
facilitate entry and installa-
tion of an 18-tonne engine
block on one of the four gen-
erators at the Kingston,
Georgetown Wartsila plant.
This component which is due
in Port Georgetown today is a
replacement for the original block
that had developed a fault some
time ago, the company said in a


ew engine block
i : t -p w- o ..


ingston power-""


press release Friday.
As a result of that fault, the
5.5 megawatt power generating
set was taken out of service last
February. A replacement was or-
dered from tlie Wartsila factory
in Vaasa, Finland and shipped
to Guyana. The journey took
approximately six weeks.
GPL said installation of the
new engine block will require the
removal of an 11 ft by 18 ft sec-
tion of the insulated wall of the


power station as well as a por-
tion of the concrete fence h -mting
the facility.
The insulation on the.
wall (the cladding) will be gra'.
ally stripped over the.next four
days, and the outer section is ex-
pected to be removed on May 5.
GPL said the missing por-
tion of the wall will cause an ap-
preciable increase in the level of
noise from the station since the
three generating sets will remain


in operation to continue power-
ing the city.
Residents in nearby areas
Save been apprised of this de-
velopment and have been ad-
vised that the noise level would
increase gradually as the cladding
is stripped away. The increased
noise level would last for ap-
proximately seven days, the
power company said.
During this time, the dam-
aged engine block will be re-


moved and the new one
should be positioned on its
base on May 6.
By May 8, the station wall
and insulation should be back in
place.
GPL meanwhile, is examin-
ing a number of options that
could minimise the noise as much
as possible.
This activity is not expected
to affect power supply to the
city, GPL said.
All generating sets at the
Garden of Eden location are in
operation along with the three


Wartsila units at Kingston, it rm-
ported.
After the new engine block
is installed, local technicians un-
der supervision of two overseas-
based engineers from the Wartsila
company, will re-assemble the
numerous components on the
generator to return it to service
by the end of June, adding 5.5
megawatts of power to the
Demerara inter-connected sys-
tem.
GPL and the Demerara
Power Company which entity
manages the two Wartsila sta-
tions in Demerara, are com-
mitted to complete these re-
pairs in the shortest possible
time, and sincerely regret the
temporary inconvenience
that the additional noise will
cause to the community sur-
rounding the Kingston plant,
the release said.

a one-week tour of Guyana under the aegis of the Common-
wealth Youth Programme, Caribbean Centre.
According to a release from the CYP, the main objectives of the
visit were to expose the top performers in the Junior Achievement
programme to the business culture of Guyana and to promote the
programme to potential sponsors with a view to establishing a lo-
cal chapter of Junior Achievers sometime in the near future.
During their stay, the young people met with several govern-
ment officials including Minister of Education, Dr. Henry Jeffrey
and Permanent Secretary within the Ministry of Culture, Youth and
Sport, Mr. Keith Booker.
The group was also given audience by Ms. Lolita Applewaithe,
Deputy Secretary-General of CARICOM and Chancellor of the Ju-
diciary, Madame Justice Desiree Bernard. The meeting with Chan-
cellor Bernard was to express greetings from the Governor General
of St. Lucia, Dame Pearlette Louisy, who is the Patron of the St.
Lucia Junior Achievers programme,
It is hoped that a local JA programme will be underway by
the end of this year.


EU enlargement opens

door to cigarette...


(From page seven)
1,000 the work will be
tougher.
Realising it Would be politi-
cally unacceptable to search traf-
fic 100 yards into Germany, of-
ficers will have to. conduct
checks along roads leading
through, the state.
Twelve people are currently
assigned to these mobile units.
That will rise to 255 next month.
Christoph Malcherowitz,
head of the one existing unit, be-
lieves criminal gangs may already
have cigarettes stored in Poland
ready to hit the roads.
"We presume, and there's
some evidence, that there'll be a
sharp increase in activity. The
trend is firmly upwards in re-
cent months. It's an indication
of what's to come," he said.
Klaus Schade, deputy head
of customs at Frankfurt's bridge .
over the Oder river to Poland,
also expects illicit trade to rise,
although recognizes it is not a
- new phenomenon.
Schade, whose operation
is set to be wound down,
was a customs officer for
former communist East Ger-
many.
Cigarettes were not the prob-
lem then, but fashion coming in
from Poland, then a fellow So-
viet bloc member, and subsidized
food, shoes and children's
clothes going the other way. *
Behind him, pedestrians
stream by a radiation detector
into Germany, many weighed
down by shopping. In front, bor-
der police check drivers, before
customs gets it hands on their -
cars.
Schade, who reckons about
three quarters of the smugglers


are Polish, says inspectors on his
car bridge alone typically un-
earth a quarter of a million ciga-
rettes a month.
On one of the last days of
checks, inspectors pull over a
few cars and rifle through the
belongings. Border guards mean-
while order five Poles in a car
full of tools to turn back.
"They'd said they were go-
ing to the Netherlands, but they
had just 25 euros between tliem,"
one guard said.
Far busier is the highway
just to the south that carries
more than a million trucks a
year. Schade says one was
found the previous day with
735,000 cigarettes in a hidden
panel. ,
Truck drivers, used to
tailbacks of up to 25 miles into
Germany and a long wait at a
' holding station heading the other
way, will no doubt cheer the end
of customs controls.
I However, despite Poland's
EU entry, many of the customs
limits remain a maximum of 200
cigarettes, only 40 for those liv-
ing near the border, and only a
standard tank of cheaper Polish
petrol.
Those caught with too much
tobacco will face the existing fine,
but also have their cigarettes con-
fiscated. Until now they could
keep their smokes. Those exceed-
ing the limit by more than 1,000
cigarettes will face prosecution.
"We're not so interested
in the small fry, but we have
to fight organised crime. For
that, we'll need more than
just mobile customs units, but
extensive police cooperation,"
said Leonhard Bierl of the fed-
eral customs crime agency.

quoted statsucs from a paper
'A Global Strategy for Labour'
by Jeff Faux, who is a member
of Global Policy Network
Steering Committee, and former
President of Economic Policy
Institute of the US. In that pa-
per, Faux states: ."The median
income of the richest ten coun-
tries was 77 times that of the
ten poorest in 1980, and 149
times in 1999. The income of
the richest 10 per cent of the
world's people was 70 times
that of the poorest 10 per cent.
in 1980 and 122 times in 1999."
According to Chand, this
growing inequality between
peoples is also the grim reality
that exists between nations.
"A few nations remain
and grow wealthier, while
many, especially in South Af-
rica, Asia, Latin America,
Middle East and the Carib-
bean grow seemingly poorer,"
he said.


BOGOTA,


Colombia bia.


(Reuters) A leader of
Colombia's far-right
paramilitaries defended him-
self yesterday against accusa-
tions he ordered the killing
of comrade Carlos Castano,
whose disappearance has
brought peace talks close to
collapse.
In an interview with the El
Espectador newspaper, Diego
Murillo, one of the most power-
ful chiefs of the illegal United Self
Defense Forces of Colombia, or
AUC, said he thought Castano
was alive and well.
Castano, one of the founders
of AUC and a proponent of now-
stalled disarmament talks with
the government, went missing on
April 16 after a shootout with
paramilitary gunmen near his
hidden ranch in northern Colom-

A friend told Reuters on Fri-
day the gruff-voiced paramili-
tary boss was taken prisoner and
strangled to death by AUC ri-
vals. Murillo sent Castano's own
brother, Vicente, and another
paramilitary called '18' to kill
him, the friend said.
"The accusations against
myself or commander Vicente
Castano are perverse," said
Murillo, also known by the
aliases "Don Berna" and
"Adolfo Paz."
"I think that Carlos must be
OK," he said, without elaborat-
ing.
Proof Castano was killed
could be a fatal blow to year-old
negotiations the government had
hoped would lead to the disar-
mament of 20,000 paramilitary
gunmen waging an illegal war
against Marxist rebels and traf-
ficking in cocaine.
Government officials fear the
loss of Castano would fracture
the paramilitary group and make
talks impossible.
Castano aides said rival
AUC members heavily in-
volved in cocaine trafficking
had attacked him because he
was planning to give informa-
tion about their activities to
U.S. authorities.
Murillo strongly denied ac-
cusations by U.S. officials that
he is deeply involved in
Colombia's massive cocaine
trade.'
"They (U.S. and Colombian
officials) have received false in-
formation," he said. "We are not
drug traffickers. Here there are
no vendettas or criminal groups.
We are political actors in the con-
flict," Murillo said.
If Castano is dead, it was a
violent end to a violent life for a
man who personally admitted to
dozens of killings and forged
links between his militia and
Colombia's armed forces in a
bloody war of revenge against
Marxist rebels.
Together with his late
brother Fidel, Castano founded
what later became the AUC af-
ter Marxist guerrillas kidnapped
and killed their father, a poor
farmer, in the early 1980s.
Often working in coopera-
tion with renegade sectors of
the army, they killed thou-
sands of people they suspected
of collaborating with the
rebels, mainly peasants, and
became notorious for their
methods, including chainsaw
attacks.

the corner threw in the towel.
The intense action continued in the fifth bout as Romario
Grandison (CBG) used a leading left, followed by right hooks, to
force the referee to institute the mandatory count on Marvin Leitch
(Sixhead gym) in the first round. He landed left and right hooks,
turning back attacks by Leitch in the second round. Toe-to-toe
exchanges ensued in the third round, with Grandison getting the
better of the exchanges with solid lefts and rights and got the
decision.
A bruising 110-114 lbs encounter between the Sobers'
completed the first night card. It was the second time that
Marvin of Young Lions and Earl of Ricola clashed in the same
tournament, Marvin claiming victory first last year.
But Earl made clear his intentions of reversing his fate, early
landing his trademark vicious rights to head. Marvin pulled back,
then came back in the closing moments of the round with jabs.
In second round, Southpaw Marvin came out with
combinations, but Earl countered with a solid right hook to head
and Marvin was counted. Marvin danced and came in with jabs,
but again Earl penetrated with a solid straight right to have Marvin
counted a second time. Eventually Earl was given the decision.
The championships will continue next Wednesday at the
Cliff Anderson Sports Hall and will return to Linden on Friday
when the finals will be staged at the Mackenzie Sports Club
ground.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE, May 2, 2004 'Z


Fleming issues warning to England


By Scott Heinrich
BBC Sport at Lord's
NEW Zealand skipper
Stephen Fleming issued
England a chilling warning
ahead of the forthcoming
three-Test series between the
two countries.
Fleming said the current
Black Caps team was better
than the 1999 unit he skippered
to a memorable 2-1 victory the
last time they toured England.
"Individually it's the most
talented side I've been involved
in," Fleming said at Lord's
yesterday.
"We don't know how good
we can be which is exciting."
He added: "We're in a
better phase as a team and we're
coming off some good
performances."
With England's Test team
dispersed following their series
win against West Indies and the
one-day side idle in a rain-
soaked Caribbean, New Zealand
have been in full training.
They arrived in England on
a high following a drawn Test
series with South Africa and
one-day series wins over
Graeme Smith's team and
Pakistan.
John Bracewell echoed
Fleming's sentiments, stressing
how greatly the team has
impressed him since he took
over as coach at the end of last
year.
"There is a greater self-
belief in our cricketers than
there once was," said Bracewell.
"I noticed it the first week
I was there. There were young
kids who walked on to the park
as though they owned the park,
which is very un-New Zealanfd-
like.
"In the past we've tended
to be in awe of people who
were perceived to be of greater
names than ourselves and almost
apologetic in the way we
played."
The tourists hope to
encounter conditions similar to
their own country for the early-
summer tour, and have named a
14-man squad stacked with
seam bowlers.
"They're more natural
conditions for us compared with
a tour to the subcontinent or
Australia," Fleming said.


"We're pretty pleased and
our seamers are very pleased to
be over here."
While Fleming was adamant
New Zealand had improved
since 1999, he was quick to
point out that England had also
come a long way in the
intervening five years.
"I think England will come
back (from the Caribbean) and
adjust very well," he reckoned.
"They're obviously
confident with the way they
have been playing in the West
Indies.
"They seem to be a more
consistent side now in terms of
selection policy and the way
the players are performing.
"I think the two teams are
very similar, as seemed to be
the case in 1999 when both
teams were trying to find the
right balance.
"Whereas now, a few years
on, both teams seem reasonably
settled."

J. Narine
Regional Executive Officer
Region No. 5


By Leeron Brumell
DIRECTOR of Sport within
the National Sports Commis-
sion (NSC) Neil Kumar has
praised the efforts of Chinese
table tennis coach Zhou Ping.
On a visit to the training
ground (Cliff Anderson Sports
Hall) on Friday, Kumar ex-
pressed his sentiments at the
good work Ping, assisted by na-
tional coach Linden Johnson is
doing.
"I think he is doing a good
job. He is very consistent in his
training and I also commend
Linden (Johnson) for the job he
is doing as well.
It is heartening to see so
many children here; I never ex-
pected to see this much and I
am also pleased with the re-
sponse by the children and par-
ents."
Kumar said there is need for
a continuation of the Chinese
training programme.
"I think his contract needs
to be renewed or if not I hope
Minister Teixeira (Gail) will
bring another Chinese coach, be-


cause I am hoping for a togeth-
erness of the GTTA (Guyana
Table Tennis Association) and
the NSC in the future."
The Director of Sports
himself has a daughter who is
apart of the training session
daily at the venue.
While there, Kumar also
mingled and chatted with the
Chinese coach and the players.
Ping, who is on a one-year
stint that ends in September
feels that the Guyanese players
have made progress both at the
junior and senior levels.
The Director of Sport said
that he is hopeful that the soci-
ety will show support for the
players and the sport to aid in
their development.
Ping further added that the
focus on the table is not so good
since the players are amateurs
but he is hoping that the female
players will medal at regional
and international games because
they are showing marked, im-
provement in their game.
The coach said the players
lack adequate international expe-
rience and this contributes to


their downfall, and the focus
now should be on the psycho-
logical aspect of their game.
He said they are playing
reasonable tennis technically and
tactically.
Ping arrived here in Septem-
ber of 2003 through the
Guyana/China government
agreement and had been work-
ing with players from the begin-
ner stage up to the seniors.
Minister of Culture, Youth
and Sport Gail Teixeira had dis-
closed that the Chinese coach's
primary duty would have been
to put together the best junior
and senior national teams to
make them competition ready,
while also working along with
the GTTA to develop beginner
programmes.
Ping has so far been part of an
out reach programme to Bartica in
which they imparted knowledge for
future development.
The GTTA along with
Ping will be in Berbice in the
coming week for a three-day
workshop, which will culmi-
nate with a Berbice tourna-
ment.


Jones and Wade help Heat

stay hot at home


NEW YORK, (Reuters) -
Eddie Jones scored 25 points
while rookie Dwayne Wade
added 21 as the Miami Heat
rallied from a 10-point first
quarter deficit to beat the
New Orleans Hornets 87-83
in Miami on Friday.
The Heat, who have won
15 successive games in Miami,
take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-
seven Eastern Conference series,
which moves back to New Or-
leans for game six today..
The home team has won ev-


ery game in the series so far, but
the Heat had to rally from the
10-point deficit that was cut to
five by the start of the final quar-
ter, where Miami then outscored
New Orleans 29-20, with
Wade's three-pointer with 54
seconds remaining giving them
the lead they held on to.
Lamar Odom added 16
points for the Heat, while Caron
Butler pulled down 11 rebounds
and scored five points.
Baron Davis had 33 points,
seven assists and five rebounds


for the Hornets, while P.J.
Brown added 12 points. Jamaal
Magloire had 10 rebounds and
10 points before fouling out.
The Heat have had a terrible
road record in the regular season,
going 13-N8 and while game six
will be in New Orleans, the fi-
nal game if required is in
Miami, where the Hornets are
0-5 this season.
The winner of the series
will meet the Indiana Pacers
in the second round of the
playoffs


Garnett leads Timberwolves

to second round finally


NEW YORK, (Reuters) -
Kevin Garnett's 28 points,
seven rebounds and eight
assists helped the Minnesota
Timberwolves beat the
Denver Nuggets 102-91 in
Minneapolis on Friday, a
victory that ended years of
playoff frustration.
The Timberwolves won the
best-of-seven Western
.Conference first round series 4-
1 and advanced to the second
round of the NBA's playoffs for
the first time.
It also ended seven years of
losing in the first round.
"It feels good, but there's a
bigger task at hand," said
Garnett after his team had
almost blown a huge lead, which
at one stage stretched to 26-
points.
Minnesota, the Western
Conference number one seed,
will meet the Sacramento Kings
in the best-of-seven semi-finals
starting next week.
Denver closed to within
five points at one point, but
Garnett made several key
baskets to lead all scorers and
ensure their lead was not lost.
The Nuggets were without
rookie forward Carmelo
Anthony, who missed the game
after suffering a knee injury in
game four of the series in


Denver.
Latrell Sprewell and Sam
Cassell, two experienced players
brought in to reverse
Minnesota's playoff woes, ably
assisted Garnett with Cassell
scoring 26 points, while


Sprewell had 19.
Andre Miller scored 21
points for the Nuggets, who
won just 20 games last
season, while Marcus Camby
added 21 points and 15
rebounds

Bannister's magical moment:


By Tom Fordyce

FIFTY years ago this spring,
a 25-year-old medical student
named Roger Bannister made
sporting history.
In 1954, the idea that any
man could run a mile in under
four minutes seemed
preposterous. It was also a
notion that fascinated the world.
"The four-minute mile had
a beauty about it, a symmetry,"
the late Norris McWhirter once
said.
"If you said you were
running 1760 yards in 240
seconds, people would have
yawned."
Paavo Nurmi, the Flying
Finn, was the first man to get
anywhere near, running 4mins
10.4secs in 1923. Britain's
Sidney Wooderson brought that
down to 4:06.04, playing a part
in inspiring the young Bannister
to take up running. -


"As a child, I always
found it easier to run than
walk," says Bannister.
"When I watched Wooderson
- that was the first time I saw
the symmetry and perfection
of miling. And it was
something I could do."
Going up to Oxford as a 17-
year-old, Bannister did not
enjoy an auspicious start to his
athletics career.
On his second day at Exeter
College, he went for a run
around the playing fields with
a friend, only to be told by the
groundsman that his pal was
much better.

OLYMPIC GOLD
Undeterred, he kept
competing, changed his running
style and began picking up wins
and shaving seconds from his
time.
By 1951 he was down to
4mins 7.8secs. The plan was

Olympics, win 1500m gold and
then retire to concentrate on his
medical career.
Instead, with Emil Zatopek

showing what could be done

training, Bannister ran out of.
gas and could finish only fourth.
It was a watershed moment.:
"That was the trigger for
Roger to do something in
athletics," says Chris
Chataway, Bannister's friend
and fellow runner.
"A week later, I got a
. letter from Roger asking if I
would pace him on an attempt
on the four-minute mile."
Bannister started working
with a new coach, the Austrian
Franz Stampfl, acutely aware
that two other athletes -
Australian John Landy, and the
"Kansas Cowboy", Wes Santee
were also closing in on the
magical four-minute mark.
Hearing that Landy was on
his way to Europe to chase the
record, Bannister decided to
make an early attempt.
The first suitable occasion
he could find was 6 May, during
an Oxford University v
Amateur Athletics Association
meet at Iffley Road, Oxford.

ONE-OFF CHANCE
To Bannister's great
consternation, the day dawned
wet, windy and cold.
"My greatest anxiety was
that the wind would not drop,"
he says.
"[Pacemakers] Chris
Chataway and Chris Brasher
were getting impatient, and


I W a lkrace

wanted to know if it was on or
off.
"Franz told me that if I had
the chance and didn't take it, I
could regret it for the rest of my
life."
Just after six o'clock in the
evening, the wind suddenly fell
ahead of the scheduled mile race.
Bannister made his fateful
decision. "I said, 'yes let's do
it'."
"Roger had the adrenaline
coursing," recalls Chataway.
"Everything else was in place."
The crowd of 1,100 fell
silent as the six athletes
stepped onto the start line.
The tension was such that
Brasher false-started. Then,
on the second gun, they were
off.
"During first lap, I was so
full of running that I thought
we were going too slowly,"
remembers Bannister.
"I shouted.at Chris, 'faster,
faster' but he said afterwards
that he was going as fast as he
possibly could."
Brasher led them through
into the third lap and then gave.
up the lead to Chataway.
Bannister hung on in second,
waiting to make his move.
"I had to sense at what
point Chris was starting to
slow," he says.
"I wanted to leave it as late
as possible, because it was an
advantage to have him leading.
So I decided to wait until the
back straight."

THE FINAL ASSAULT
With 250 metres to go,
Bannister kicked hard for home.
"I overtook decisively
with a burst of speed, feeling
as if I was in the -finishing

mode and would have to keep
it going as long as I could
"The only question on my
mind was, could I make it
without slowing down?"T'
McWhirter, standing by the
finishing line, recalls Bannister's
face, white and drawn, blurring
through the tape as the
exhausted athlete fell into
Stampfl's arms.
"Harold Abrahams, the
1924 100m Olympic gold
medallist, was the chief
timekeeper," said McWhirter-
"He came across and gave
me the piece of paper with the
official time on it, and there it
was 3 minutes 59 seconds.
"I read the time to the
crowd but I can assure you
that the 59.4 seconds was not
heard. All they cared about was
the three minutes."


LUCK OR LEdEND?
Fifty years on, Banniste
remains steadfastly modes
about that famous day.
"I was a person in tht
right place at the right time,'
he says. "It was a stroke o,
luck whether it was Santee.
Landy or me who got then
first."
Six weeks later, Landy ran
3.57.9 at a meet in Turku,
Finland, shattering Bannister's
world record.
In subsequent years, the
record would fall still further,
right down to Hicham El
Guerrouj's current mark of
3:43.13.
However low the mark
may go, Bannister's
achievements on that windy
May day will never be
forgotten. (BBC Sport).

WORKSHOP


-B S Dix


RECENTLY, I have-been bombarded with so many beauty
questions, that I thought it would be great to answer the most
frequently asked ones so that you all can learn from using
these simple techniques.

What's the best way of drawing attention
away from spotty skin?
Wear red or any bright lipstick! Put the emphasis somewhere
else, either on your lips or on your eyes. Make something else stand
out to take the attention away.

Are there any colour
lipsticks
That all skin tones can
Swear?
Any colour can be
worn on any skin colour;
you just need the right
., tone (light or dark, soft or
S' dominant) and the
confidence to carry it off.
If you want to play safe,
however, you can't go
wrong with brown.


How do I make my lips
look fuller?
It depends very much on what your lips are like to start with.
Don't have unrealistic expectations: If you have incredibly thin lips
you won't be able to make them look that much fuller. The one
quick illusion for fuller lips and that's what it is is to use
something shiny such as gloss or shimmer on your lower lip. This
will catch the light instantly, making the area appear a little bit bigger.

Is it true that you shouldn't pluck
your eyebrows from above?
Ideally you shouldn't because that is the highest point and the
area that creates expression, and once that gets distorted it's very
hard to regrow the hairs back there. Having said that, if there are

hairs that are really unruly you can
get the odd mutant one that looks like horse hair then you will
have to pull it out. But do be aware that once you start you'll have
to keep them maintained regularly. The alternative is to bleach the
hairs above instead. Go to a professional and they should be able
tp give sound advice.


What's the best way of defining my
eyebrows without drawing them on?
Brush them upwards with an eyebrow brush and use a little bit
of eyeshadow powder in a matching shade to your eyebrow hair to
heighten and emphasise them. When I was in Guyana recently, I
saw that Fashion Fair cosmetics were there and I know they make
two shades of eyebrow powder/gel. If not Revlon or any major range
should sell this product. If you can't get a specific product made
for eyebrows, then use an eyeshadow as near your eyebrow colour.

How can I get rid of chapped and extremely dry lips?
Gently scuff with a soft toothbrush to get rid of the dry bits of
skin. Then apply lashings of lip balm or Vaseline. However tempting,
the one thing you must not do is lick your lips as it dries them out.

Should I exfoliate spotty skin?
You can, but don't use anything with large grains, use something
mild instead. And be very gentle or you'll end up irritating and over
stimulating the skin even more. Don't concentrate on a specific
blemish either; let it take its time to heal.

models have in magazines without looking greasy?
Prepare the skin (cleanse, tone and moisturise) and make sure
that it is not too greasy or over moisturised to begin with. Apply a
cream or powder containing a touch of shimmer in the right areas -
cheeks, lips and eyes and they will catch the light. Be discerning-
you don't have to plaster your whole face with it or you will look
like shiny greaseball.

Is expensive make-up better than cheaper brands?
The packaging will certainly be nicer, it might smell slightly
better and the formulation may be a bit more expensive, but
ultimately they will both perform. If you apply it properly it
shouldn't really make any difference. The biggest difference might
be in how it feels and its longevity.

How long should I keep my lipstick?
I have some old Estee Lauder lipsticks that are eight years old
and because they've been kept from air and light they're fine. I
have also had others that drag on the skin after three or six months.
There is no set time limit, but when it stops applying well and
starts smelling of wax crayons, that's the time to throw it out.

How can I stop my nail varnish from getting
thick and gunky in the bottle?
Add a few drops of nail varnish remover into the bottle and
keep it in the fridge. Be careful not to add too much, you don't
want to thin it out too much.

How can I tone down blushers when
I have been too heavy handed?
Use a powder brush with some loose translucent powder and
dust around the edges to soften the colour. When applying blusher,
use a smaller blusher brush to avoid colour overload. Also opt for
soft shades of blusher, which can be built up in layers to achieve
more colour.

How often should I renew my mascara?
Every three to six months. Because you are pulling the wand in
and out of the tube it attracts bacteria and gets thick and cakey.
When it shows signs of this, chuck it away.

Will foundation clog my pores?
No. Foundations have mineral oils in them, which enable them
to sit on the surface of the skin, and as a result they won't sink
into the pores. If you're still not convinced, using a moisturiser
underneath should put your mind at ease.

I have very short eyelashes, what can
I do to make them look longer?
Your lashes are like your hair and your genetic make-up
determines their length. Well conditioned lashes definitely look better,
so use a touch of Vaseline a couple of times a week. And don't
forget to take your mascara off at night as dried out product left on
the lashes will make the ends snap off. Try a lengthening mascara,
but the effect will only be marginal. Alternatively, brown mascara
is softer than black and makes the length less obvious.

How can I get rid of blackheads around my nose?
The easiest and safest way is to use a deep cleansing face mask.
Don't squeeze them out if you can help it. If you're really stuck,
go for a facial and let the professional deal with them. Also remember
that environmental'pollutants and dirt can stick in the pores of the
skin, but this can.be prevented by using a moisturiser, which acts
as a barrier.

How can I strengthen my weak nails?
Dehydration is the main cause of weak, flaky nails. Treat your
nails like your skin and look
after them. If they're dry,
S massage them with vitamin E oil
or hand cream to keep them
well nourished. Keeping them
painted will also keep them
hard; just remember to use a
base coat to lock in the natural
"" moisture. Another great tp is to
file them slightly square on the
Stips. If they're too rounded
they tend to split but a square
edge gives the nail more support.

How can I prevent my eyeliner

'Wow .00.

~,u-


writing this
column nearly
13 years ago I
have received more questions
about bad breath, called
halitosis, than any other
aspect of dentistry. Bad
breath has plagued mankind
for many years according to


records from old civilisations.
But ironically, the problem of
bad breath is not difficult to
solve.
Probably the most
significant aspect of halitosis is
the fact that you cannot really
tell that you have bad breath.
This is the time when you have
to depend on the honesty and


kindness of friends to let you
know because we are all immune
to our breath. What if you are
on your way to an important
meeting and you simply must
know if your breath wil precede
you through the door? You can
try breathing into a
handkerchief or running floss
between your teeth.


It is reported that the
ancient Greeks used mouth rise
to conquer bad breath, while
wine, aniseed, and myrrh. The
Italians used sage, cinnamon,
juniper seeds, root of cypress
rosemary leaves. Today, the
mouthwash industry is worth
trillions although it may
surprise many to learn that
mouth rinse cannot cure bad
breath..
The mouth rinses ea the
market in a general sense is
nothing more than flaveured
alcohol with a bit of
antiseptic. In fact, all that
most of them do is serve as a
temporary agent, which
freshens the breath for a few
hours by killing many of the
obnoxious bacteria in the
mouth.


Obviously, curing bad
breath depends on what is
causing itL In 85 per cent of
cass,, it is due to something
is the mouth. Most often,
halitosis is the result of
meiig more serious than a
dirty month. Plaque, the
nearly invisible film of
bacteria that is constantly
forming in your mouth, is
often responsible. Tooth
decay by itself does not smell
baL It is the food trapped in
the cavities and crevices,
which becomes putrid by
cBounies of bacteria that in
tnrm produce foul smelling
gases,, is what gives rise to
haliasiis

standard way
that a dentist
treats bad
breath. He or she first
seeks to eliminate all
ommmal areas where food
remnants and bacteria
aiate. These include
badly decayed teeth
(stamps), cavities, tartar,
gingiwal pockets (derived
from gm disease), chipped
teeth, faulty fixed
dentures, leaking fillings
and geld caps, extrinsic
stains (e.g. nicotine
deposits), soft tissue
infections (gum abscess)


and plaque.
Next, the dentist educates
the patient about oral health,
which includes a strict
adherence to the practice of oral
hygiene (brushing, flossing,
dietary intake etc.),
accompanied by regular dental
checkups.
While this is undoubtedly
the best way to treat the most
common form of bad breath,
victims may want to try a few
methods to control the
condition.
The key is to keep your
mouth clean. Thorough
brushing and flossing is a
good start. Remember to
brush your tongue as well as
your gums. A dry mouth
contributes to a smelly
mouth. Good examples of
this are the characteristic
'morning breath' and
halitosis due to fever or
menstruation. Try chewing
sugarless gum or sucking
sugarless mints to stimulate
salivary flow. Wash the
mouth out vigorously after
each meal. Plain soapy water
is the cheapest mouth rinse.
Avoid high scented foods e.g.
garlic; smoking, alcohol.
Finally if you must use a
marketed mouth rinse, use
the product with fluoride for
its cavity-fighting potential.

M WRITING to
No happy ending JM
you with a corn
pletely shattered
heart. I've known my wife
for over five years, and we got married last August. It was a fairy tale wedding, everything we
always wanted, with about 200 guests. Everyone said by the look on our faces they knew we were
in love.
For years before the wedding, my wife was completely into me. We spent every night and all
weekend together. Our perfect weekend would be a couple of rental movies and a night out to eat.
Six months after the wedding I threw a 30th birthday party for my wife and invited all
her friends. She had a blast but
got very drunk. People were M ..
shocked to see her like that, but
I was just happy my wife was
happy.
After the party I noticed she acted different. My wife didn't seem
to care about things we made a priority in our life, like having a baby and
buying a home. One Saturday morning I found her secretly checking her
voice mail messages. I guessed at her access code and guessed correctly. The
message I heard was her boss saying how much he missed her and needed to hear the sound of her
voice.
I started shaking and felt nauseous. He is the same age as me, in great shape, and definitely her
type. I went upstairs and confronted my wife. She denied it, but I could see the lie in her face.
When I suggested we listen to the voice mail together, she confessed and we both cried.
She explained he was there for her because I wasn't there emotionally. She said they only
kissed once or twice but never slept together I want to believe her, but I don't. She seems cold and
distant and isn't the same person anymore.
Part of me wants her back, and part of me thinks she's too far-gone.

DOYLE


Doyle, just because you cried together it doesn't mean you were crying for the same
reason. A teenager stealing a CD from a store may cry when he gets caught, but if he
succeeded he might hold the CD aloft and boast to his buddies. His tears are not
tears of remorse, but tears because of his predicament.
Nothing in your letter suggests you weren't there for your wife emotionally, yet she isn't
lying when she makes that claim. Who was emotionally disconnected?
She was, from you. She doesn't feel the closeness, the loyalty, and the bond'you do.
Your connection to her would prevent you from doing this to her. She was so disconnected
from you she didn't consider you before becoming involved with her boss.
She claims you were emotionally distant. She wants you to accept blame for something she
never told you. She did not come to her husband and talk. She started dating her boss and hid it
from her husband. If she was that miserable, she should have told you.
Fidelity is the definition of marriage. What does that mean? When two people decide on mar-
riage, dating stops. Intimate relationships with other people stop. Otherwise, why get married?
Your wife is dating again. That kills a marriage.
In one of the Upanishads there is an ecstatic passage which begins, "This earth is honey for all
beings, and all beings are honey for this earth..." That passage always reminds us what marriage
should feel like. A husband should be honey for his wife, and a wife honey for her husband.
Home should be a refuge and an oasis. The one who shares that with you should love you
simply and completely.
To move forward, sooner or later you have to get to the truth. How do you get from
where you are to where you want to be, with a woman whose first response was to lie and
point the finger at you?

Sunday Chronicle May 2,2004


ON January 19,
1999, John
Lawrence was
indicted for the
murder of Tonesha Henry, 10
of Vergenoegen, East Bank,
Essequibo. The child was also
raped .
A t Lawrence's trial
t at the
Assizes


a mixed jury returned a not
guilty verdict of murder and a
10-2 majority verdict off
manslaughter, which turned out
to be a null and void verdict.
The jury deliberated for about
and hour and 25 minutes
instead of the required two
hours.
Lawrence, was
consequently sentenced to


prison for manslaughter but was
subsequently freed.
His counsel, Mr. Compton
Richardson, appealed against
the conviction and sentence on
the ground that his client did not
benefit from the full deliberation
of the jury as required by law,
since the verdict had been
returned in less time than
allotted by the law.
T h e
Guyana Court
of Appeal, after
considering the
arguments and the law
pertaining to the case as put
forward by the appellant's
counsel and Counsel for the
State, allowed the appeal, and
quashed the conviction and
sentence for manslaughter.
That Court had found the
verdict to be null and void. But
in the interest of justice, the
Appellate Court also ordered


that Lawrence be retried on an
indictment for manslaughter.
The Appellate Court was
constituted by then Chancellor
of the Judiciary, Mr. Cecil
Kennard, and Justices of
Appeal, Mr. Lennox Perry and
Mr. Prem Persaud.
The judgment, which was
delivered by Chancellor
Kennard, disclosed that the
appellant was indicted for the
offence of murder allegedly
committed between August 25
and 26, 1995.
The allegation of the State
was that Lawrence had
murdered the child at
Vergenoegen, East Bank
Essequibo.
The State's contention was
that the deceased had died as a
result of being sexually
assaulted by the appellant.
There was no direct
evidence linking the appellant


with the death of the deceased,
but' the prosecution had
tendered at the trial a statement
allegedly made by the appellant
to the police which had been
admitted into evidence by the
trial judge after he had conducted
a voir dire (a trial within a trial)
and ruled that it (the statement)
was freely and voluntarily made
by the appellant.
Among- the injuries found
on the deceased by Dr. Leslie
Mootoo, the Forensic
Pathologist, who had performed
the post mortem examination on
the body, was a fracture of the
left hyoid bone and a ruptured
hymen.
The cause of death,
according /o Dr. Mootoo was
asphyxiati n due to fracture of
hyoid bo e.
The jury returned a
unanimous verdict of not guilty
of murder but by a majority of
10-2 had found the appellant
guilty of the lesser offence of
manslaughter, which, according
to the Chancellor, they were
quite entitled to do as the
proviso to Section 102 of the
Criminal Law (Procedure) Act
Cap. 10:01 provides:
"Provided that on a count
charging murder, if the
evidence proves
manslaughter, but does not
prove murder the jury may
find the accused not
guilty of murder but guilty
of manslaughter".
However, the Guyana
Court of Appeal had to consider


the question whether the verdict
of guilty of manslaughter was
properly received by the trial
judge, and if not, what
consequences will flow
therefrom.


CHANCELLOR
CECIL KENNARD
In this direction, during the
course of Mr. Richardson's
presentation, the Court
observed that the record revealed
that the jury had retired to
consider their verdict at 1:45
p.m. and had returned to Court
at 3: 10 p.m. when they
delivered their verdict which
meant that they had deliberated
for a period of one hour and 25
minutes.
The President of the Court
had called for the judge's minute
book in order to determine
whether the record was
accurate. A reading of the
minute book revealed that the
record was indeed accurate.


Reacting to this, the
Chancellor had said: "The jury
not having deliberated for a
period of two'hours, we have to
decide whether or not it was a
proper verdict in respect of the
offence of manslaughter."
To determine this issue, the
Court looked at Section 158 of
the Criminal Law (procedure)
Act Cap. 10:01 which provides:
(a) On the trial of a capital
offence, the. verdict for that
offence shall be unanimous.
Provided that where a person is
arraigned for 'any offence
punishable with death and the
jury, by a majority of not less
than ten, find such person guilty
of a lesser crime, then the
finding of the majority shall,
subject to the provisions of
paragraphs (b) and (c) of this
section, be taken as the verdict
and sentence shall follow
accordingly.
(b) On the trial of any
offence, other than the capital
offence, during the first and
second hours after the jury
begin to consider their verdict,
the verdict shall be unanimous,
and;
(c) On the trial of any
offence, other than a capital
offence, if on the expiration
of two hours from the time
when the jury begin to
consider their verdict, they
are agreed in the proportion
of 11 to one or 10 to two, or,

(Trinidad Guardian) -
ELIZABETH Derry declares
she is a minister of religion.
With equal conviction, the
petite, 49-year-old Derry
declares she has never
fleeced anyone of their
money.
But former members of
Derry's church in Tobago,
Rehoboth Ministries, have
accused her of using verses from
the scriptures to instill fear in
them and so. forcing them to
obey her bidding, which
included taking out loans for her
and funding trips to Guyana and
Brazil on alleged missionary
work.
Some victims paid her
telephone bills to these two
countries. And one victim even
funded the education of Derry's
daughter, Christal Claire
Francis, at the University of
Toronto.
Derry does not deny that
she owes money. She says,
however, that most of the
money was given voluntarily
between 2000 and 2002 and
that the funds were for
missionary purposes.
"I borrowed one single loan.
All the others were offered and
I told them I would pay them
back. They were very generous
and I will still bow to them for
that," she said.
She said she also financed a


missionary in Guyana and
supported 17 spiritual leaders in
the Guyanese hinterland.
Declining to say how much
money she actually owes, Derry
and her daughter, Christal, have,
however, penned their
signatures to a one-page letter
admitting that they owe a
number of people money.
Dated February 27, the
letter, made available to the
Sunday Guardian, does not give
a total figure, but states that a
verbal agreement was made in
August 2003 for repayment of
all monies owed and that this
would begin as soon as their
business ventures can afford to
do so.
"We have been advised by
our accountant that this should
be more feasible in six months'
time. In keeping with this,
repayment schedules would be
distributed by August 31,
2004," the letter said. The letter
said that reimbursements would
be based on the lists submitted
by the alleged lenders when the
verbal agreement was made.
"I am a peaceful person and
it was not a fleece. This is a
gross injustice and I can't
fathom it," Derry insisted. She
said she was unable to pay back
the money because people
owed her too. She maintained
she and all the people whose
names are on the letter were


very good friends and lived like
family.
"We were so tight," she
reasoned for people offering her
money. She added that
friendship with some of the
alleged victims blossomed so
much that she began teaching
them about the Bible and also
became a marriage counsellor for
some of them.
"They used to call me
'Mom'. We cried together and I
know all their situations," she
said.
Derry said she never had
any falling out with any of her
alleged victims while living in
their houses. The wranglings and
allegations started after she
opened her restaurant business,
she maintained.
The business is a small
restaurant. Derry said she spent
$160 000 to open the business.
THE REAL DERRY
Originally from South,
Trinidad, Derry was born
Elsberry Snell. Her surname
later changed to Derry after her
parents got divorced (her
mother's maiden name was
Derry). Put together, the name
Elsberry Derry, caused her great
stress. She then changed her
first name to Elizabeth.
"I had real problems. I was
teased. I was made fun of and I
swore I would change my


name," Derry said last week in
an interview from her restaurant,
Peter Stop, on Milford Road,
Scarborough, Tobago.
Derry, who said she taught
at Nelson Street Girls' RC
School and left in-1987 after
getting a "call" to do missionary
work, denied that she was
persuaded by a pastor to leave
teaching and do missionary
work.
"I went on my own.
Nobody encouraged me. I left
the teaching service on my
own," she said, saying that she
did do counselling work at Faith
Revival Ministries for many
years.
Derry said she became a
minister of religion after
registering with Gospel Crusade
International in Bradenton,
Florida, and that she was
ordained sometime between


1988 and 1989.
Nigel,Bishop, legal officer at
the Attorney General's
Registrar of Companies said,
however, that Rehoboth
Ministries was not registered
with them. Bishop did say there
was a Rehoboth Home
Improvement Centre registered
in the names of Wolde and
Pastora Lett at Four Roads,
Diego Martin. Pastora told the
Sunday Guardian that they had
never heard the name Elizabeth
Derry.
Members of the Rehoboth
Ministries say Derry visited the
Tobago home of a business
couple in September 1999, after
which the bottom of the split-
level house became known as
the "Basement Cult."
The story began when a


relative of the couple called
from Trinidad asking for Derry
to stay at their home for two
days because the guesthouse she
was supposed to stay at was
not available.
The couple agreed. Derry
and her Christal moved iii.
They were described as pleasant
and friendly people who kept
to themselves.
On the second day of their
stay, one former member said
the couple, dubbed Baby
Christians, suggested that the
visitors stay there for the two
weeks they intended to spend
on the island. Within these two
weeks, the couple was said to
have had a bitter quarrel in
Derry's presence.
Derry is alleged to have
started preaching the word of

NEANDERTHARL



matured faster than modem man

studu


y ratriciau m eaney

LONDON (Reuters) -
Neanderthals may conjure up
images of an uncivilised,
brutish species but they were
surprisingly early developers,
researchers said Wednesday.
Although Neanderthals
disappeared from Europe about
30,000 years ago, scientists at
the French research institute
CRNS in Paris have uncovered
new details about them by
studying teeth fossils.
The findings, reported in
the science journal Nature,
suggest Neanderthals reached
adulthood by the age of 15 -
about three years before early
modem humans probably ate
a high calorie diet and were a
distinct species from modern
humans.
"Neanderthals, despite
having a large brain, were
characterized by a short period
of development," said Fernando
Ramirez Rozzi.
Creatures with large brains
tend to have a lengthier growth
period and take longer to
mature, but Ramirez Rozzi and
his colleague Jose Maria


Bermudez de Castro found that
the opposite applied with
Neanderthals.
"Until now, the idea was:
the longer the growth, the bigger
the brain but in Neanderthals
this relationship is completely
broken," Ramirez Rozzi said in
a telephone interview.
"This difference in growth
between Neanderthals and
modem humans is, I think, very
strong proof of two different
species," he added.
Why they developed so
quickly is a puzzle, but Ramirez
Rossi suspects Neanderthals
had a high mortality rate
because of the hostile conditions
in which they lived and they
adapted to this by maturing
quickly.

DENTAL GROWTH AND
MATURITY

Dental growth records
contain biological information
and give an overall indication of
the maturity of a species.
Ramirez Rozzi and Bermudez
de Castro studied the series of


ridges, called perikymata, on
teeth fossils.
They compared teeth fossils
from Neanderthals dating froni
130,000 to 28,000 years ago,"
earlier samples dating between
800,000 and 400,000 years and
teeth fossils of homo sapiens
that were 20,000-8,000 years
old.
"Neanderthals were
characterized by having the
shortest period of dental
growth," said Ramirez Rozzi.
Whether Neanderthals
evolved gradually into modem
humans or were displaced or
killed off by them is a question
still being debated by scientists.
Some researchers believe there
may have been interbreeding to
some degree.
Neanderthals lived in caves
or huts, used fires and tools and
ate a variety of animals. They
may have been cannibals and
could have communicated with
speech.
Jan Kelley, of the
University of Illinois in Chicago,
said in a commentary in the
journal that more studies on

teeth fossils are needed to
support the conclusions reached
by Ramirez Rozzi and
Bermudez de Castro.
"Nonetheless, these
authors have opened up
what should prove to be a
fruitful line of research
into both the relationships
and the palaeobiology of
Neanderthals," Kelley
said.


' P From page IV
where the jury consist of 11 jurors in the proportion of 10 to one, the verdict of that majority
shall be taken and have effect as the verdict of the jury.
After citing several legal authorities on the point, Chancellor Kennard declared: "The majority
verdict of guilty of manslaughter in the instant case not having been properly received by the trial
judge it would follow that that verdict cannot stand. The question therefore arises for what offence
should the appellant be retried? Should it be for murder or should it be for manslaughter?" the
Chancellor had asked.
The Appellate Court considered a number of cases that fell under the said heading before deciding
the fate of the appellant.
The Chancellor had said: "In this case, the jury had properly returned a verdict of not guilty of
murder so that the appellant cannot be retried for that offence.
However, in relation to manslaughter, the verdict of the jury was not a proper one and amounted
to a nullity. Applying the ratio decidendi in Nasralla's case, it means that the appellant can properly
be retried for the offence of manslaughter.
"In the circumstances, we are forced to allow the appeal and quash the conviction and
sentence for manslaughter and we would order that the appellant be retried on an indictment
for manslaughter," The Chancellor concluded.

New leisure


centre...for horses
ASHGABAT (Reuters) Turkmenistan's autocratic
president opened a gleaming new leisure centre Monday,
equipped with a swimming pool, air conditioning and even
medical facilities all of it for horses.
President-for-life Saparmurat Niyazov showed foreign
diplomats around the vast $15 million complex which includes
an operating theater, a hippodrome and stables kept cool from
the desert heat.
The new equine centre, shown on state television, proved
something of a contrast to conditions for many people in the
gas-rich yet impoverished Central Asian state.
Niyazov, officially known as Turkmenbashi or Father of
the Turkmen, last week fired several ministers for failing to
bridge huge salary arrears, which average little more than the
official minimum wage of $70 a month and are regularly paid
late.
Earlier this year he fired 15,000 nurses and medical
staff likely to be replaced by conscripted soldiers -
in an unexpected shock reform of the national health
system.

A look at the music of EMINIM
By Ruel Johnson


MARSHALL
Bruce
Mathers III,
was born October 12, 1972 in
Kansas City, Missouri to two
young musicians, Debbie
Mathers and Marshall
Mathers II. Debbie and
Marshall II were married
when he was 21 and she was
just 15.
Before his young son was a
year old, Mathers abandoned his
family. Debbie and young
Marshall lived with fanuly untul
they finally senled in the citv
of Detroit when Marshall was


into was a predominantly black
(African-American) area, they
being one of only three white
families in the area. As a young
white boy going to school in a
predominantly black area,
Marshall became an easy target
for bullies.
Once, a bully named
D'Angelo Bailey pushed him to
the ground and he hit his head
so hard that he was sent into a


coma. Mathers eventually
dropped out of school. He
became increasingly interested in
rap music, a genre of which he
was a fan since his uncle Ronnie
gave him a record when he was
nine. Along with a friend, MC
Proof, Marshall used to practice
his skills by taking on other
young rappers in a nearby high
school.
He eventually moved on to
the open mic contests at a place
called the Hip-Hop Shop, where
he surprised the audience again
and again by battling and
beating other [black] MCs with
his lyrical ability.
In 1996, with his daughter
Hailey on the way, Marshall
put out an album called Infinite.
It was infinitely rejected.
Nobody liked it. Nobody
bought it. Nobody bothered
with it. The lyrics were
derivative, lame, uninspiring
with tracks like 'Maxine' and
'313'. Most people who heard
it told him and he should stick
to what white boys do best,
rock and roll.
Inspiration came to the
frustrated and angry Mathers
the same way that it comes to
most good writers... while he
was in the toilet. Mathers
created his alter ego, Slim Shady
and while continuing his rap
battles at Detroit hip hop
venues, he compiled a demo
tape, The Slim Shady EP, in

1997.
Later that year, he
competed in a Hip Hop
Olympiad and scored second
place. Contrary to the dictum
that history forgets the also-
rans, in this case it was the
winner of that contest who
went into obscurity. Aftermath
staff at the event procured a
demo tape of the white rapper
and forwarded it to Jimmy
lovine who played it for Dr. Dre.
In 1999, The Slim Shady LP
came out and Marshall Mathers
aka Slim Shady and Eminem
began his ascension into the
starscape of hip hop.

BERSERKAND
BIZARRE THE
MACABRE POETRY
OF EMINEM

nI his song The Way I
Am, what one might
call his ars poetica,
Eminem raps that

"...since birth I've been
cursed with this curse to just
curse
And just blurt this berserk
and bizarre [stuff] that works
And it sells and it helps in


itself to relieve
all this tension, dispensin'
these sentences"
Though it has been said
differently, this pretty much
sums up the seemingly
innate drive to create, to
mold and manipulate
language, until whatever
comes out is aesthetically
valid. Around the time of
Marshall Mathers' entrance
on the scene, the rap music
that was selling was-either
gangsta rap, with artistes
talking, often exaggerating
grossly, their gang-related
pasts and presence; or
rappers boasting of the
oodles and oodles of wealth
(bling bling) that they
possessed, while in reality it
was the labels that earned
most of the money.
Let us begin with Eminem's
album, The Slim Shady LP. With
the creation of Slim .Shady,
Marshall Mathers found a
grotesque baleful clown; the
type popular in so many B-
movies, through which to vent
his frustrations: about his
mother, his initial failure as a rap
artist, his tumultuous
relationship with his girlfriend
Kim, and his struggle being (and
this is extremely ironic in the
American context) a white man
in a black man's world.
The album grapples with

all of the artist's angst with lines
that are by virtue of all the
technical stuff like rhythm etc,
but more for its untainted
honest pure poetry. For
example, consider,
"I'm tired of being white
trash, broke and always poor
Tired of taking pop battles
back to the party store
I'm tired of not having a
phone
Tired of not having a home
to have one in if I did have it
on
Tired of not driving a BM,
tired of not working at GM
Tired of wanting to be him,
tired of not sleeping
Without a Tylenol PM"

In the song Brain-Damage,
he recreates, and distorts, the
bullying he received at the
hands of "this fat kid" Bailey
who he said used to beat him up
because his (Bailey's) father
was a boxer. The revenge that
he didn't act out on Bailey in
real life, he did in his' song.
This, the actuating of his
most violent fantasies, was to
become a major theme in
Eminem's work.

'WARLOCK' 1959. Fox, Deluxe
colour. Starring Richard Widmark,
Henry Fonda, Anthony Quinn,
Dorothy Malone, Dolores Michaels.
Directed by Edward Dmytryk.
Certain Westerns are masterpiece classics of the screen
because they destroy the shallow opinion that
Westerns are just 'entertainment' pastimes with
shootouts, cowboys and Indians, etc. 'Warlock' is far from that,
and the average viewer of films who pays close attention to this
film will discover values both socially, humane and
psychologically perspective. Indeed, one has to pay close
attention to 'Warlock' to discover its many virtues.
This is an outstanding film because of how it is made, and
not just about its story. The basic story of 'Warlock', which
shows how a beautiful civilised town becomes intimidated and
controlled by a vicious gang of cowboys in pay of a sadistic
rancher, has been filmed in many other Westerns, but without
the deeply focused artistic skills and meaningful language used
in Dmytryk's 'Warlock'.
The film opens with a view of the town from above; this
focuses our attention right away on what this film will be about:
not one person, some star or hero who is superhuman, but a
place, a community, a social structure that is in danger of falling
apart. If there is a hero, it is Richard Widmark, who,
paradoxically, is at first a member of the very gang terrorizing
the town, but who, as we see in the film's second scene, is
uncomfortable and critical of what his buddies are inflicting on
the town and its citizens.
Widmark, Fonda and Dorothy Malone are the three crucial
characters who carry the moral strength of this film. It is through
their behaviour that sensible values begin to change their lives
toward betterment, and also help to bring about the well-being
of the town or community.
What 'Warlock' does as a film is show the psychologically
root causes of dangerously unsocial behaviour in humans. The
cowboys who terrorise Warlock are really jealous of the town's
desire to prosper through honesty; they do not like the new
civilized values of the community emerging; they do not like to

be advised, instructed, criticized or told to uphold the law. Their
stubborn behaviour and bravery come from reactionary defiance
and ganging together, from 'tagging along' in blind obedience to
peer pressure. When Widmark breaks away from this pattern,
he is fiercely hated by all the gang, except one, who takes his
side in the end and helps him in his new job as Marshal.
Fonda and Quinn are professional killers hired by
Warlock's town council as a last resort to the
anarchic situation. Fonda and Quinn are not
legitimate lawmakers, however, and are both feared and


disliked. The refi"olnship of Fonda and Quinn is also shown
from a psychological angle with Quinn paying hero-worship
to Fonda because only Fonda respects him despite his
clubfoot impediment, which is the root of his psychological
insecurity. Quinn does not want Fonda to ever stop living
and traveling with him, and when their latent homosexual
relationship ends, it is because of Fonda's affection for the
witty and perceptive town girl, played aptly by Dolores
Michaels. Quinn's love for Fonda is dangerous as it is
abnormal. When the town's people humiliate Quinn by
jeering him after Fonda announces his intention to marry,
this drives Quinn to challenge Fonda's swiftness with a gun
and he is the loser...
The two female stars of 'Warlock', Dorothy Malone and
Dolores Michaels, are vital to the film's success. When Dolores
Michaels drops her previous prissy and critical attitude to Fonda
and asks him for a drink of whisky in the steamy countryside,
we are thrilled by this sudden passionate allusion to her sexual
desires which she has been hiding beneath her intellectuality.
But it is Malone who shines, first appearing in the film by
suddenly looking through a stagecoach window with breathtaking
poise and style. Malone commands our attention throughout the
film with her firn stare, tender eyes and sensual mouth, her frank
emotional dialogue, and brisk body language conveyed in tasteful
dresses and head ties. Malone's face and body heaves with
simmering feminine emotion, and she brings the film's delightful
colour to its highest values.
M alone's role as the abused courtesan, whose past
in other towns included affairs with both Quinn
and Fonda, is matched by Widmark's role. They
are both on the road to reforming their lives in the film. Widmark
first meets Maloneat her husband's gravesite, where his friendly
attitude makes her invite him to help move in her heavy luggage
to a house she has rented in town.
The scenes of Widmark's visit are some of the most delightful
and positive in the film. We see Malone's coy. portrayal of a
woman's dignity and worth kept intact despite her immoral past.
She playfully orders Widmark to move her heavy trunk into her
bedroom before they can sit down to the supper she has prepared.
We see the enticing neatness of her house and kitchen with its
sturdy rustic utensils, and we cannot miss the voluptuous message
of Malone's body in her house
clothes as she sways to the
stove. When the injured and
scared Widmark in his new job
as marshal visits Malone late
one night, and she lets him in,
holding up her lamp, her
sexuality is brilliantly expressed
in this line she says before
-* embracing him: "What do you
want? Your whole life in one
night? "
These are just a sample of
the many forgettable moments
in 'Warlock'. Other moments of
high tension, cruelty, anger,
trickery, and action, all add up
to the film's uncut stylish
excellence. Director Edward
-.. Dmytryk was another one of
p Hollywood's greats whose
many classic films include
'Crossfire' 1947, 'Broken
Lance', 1954, 'Raintree
SCounty', 1957; 'The Young
Lions', 1958, 'Walk on the Wild
n a bcene from the wide-screen Side' 1963, and 'The
Carpetbaggers', 1964. They are
films which fiercely exposed and criticized racial prejudice, social
bigotry and injustice, making Dmytryk unjustly persecuted and
prevented from working during the paranoid 1950s anti-socialist
era in American politics.
'Warlock' achieved the status of being one of the most
popular Westerns shown in Guyana's cinemas during the 1960s.
This is the sort of film which intelligent film fans in Guyana or
anywhere, never tire of seeing, because the truthfulness it speaks
is never useless.
For teenagers and adults.

SA'SENSEOF IMAGINATION'
LE ADS TO iMDJVE P DU-- I TIDI


"How long will it take to make
British Guiana?"
The captain, looking out at
sea, releases the cigar pipe from
his mouth, delays his answer to
the stony-faced 'slave-driver'
and then gives a cryptic
response.
"Eighty, 90 days. Depends
on the weather".
The scene, taken from the
movie British Guiana 1838 -
Someday I'll see you again,
represented the end of a day's
work last Tuesday for the
production team, wrapping up


men in torn and soiled dhotiss'
and the women, in once-white
'saris' breathed a sigh of relief
when Jagessar called it a wrap
off the Number 63 Beach,
Corentyne, Berbice.
Jagessar's movie is not the
typical song and dance kind
churned out by the Indian film
industry, Bollywood, as has
been reported by other local
media. In fact, the movie does
not have any link to Bollywood.
Jagessar's "sense of
imagination" (actually, the
tagline for RBC Radio) for the

would tell me stories of how they
came on ships from India. It was
fascinating and intriguing and I was

Rohit Jagessar.


the 30-day long shoot in
Guyana.
"Great, fabulous,
magnificent", were the words
chosen by Guyanese Rohit
Jagessar after the Hesperus, was
bulldozed out to sea for sail, and
he had wrapped up the Guyana
leg of the shoot for the full
motion picture that could be
released as early as August this
year.
Local extras for the film, the


production of Guiana 1838, goes
back to his boyhood days in
Guyana.
"As a little boy, my
grandmother would tell me
stories of how they came on
ships from India. It was
fascinating and intriguing and I
was always interested in the
stories," he told Sunday
Chronicle on location at Number
63.Beach.
Jagessar, from Black Bush
Polder, Corentyne, Berbice,
moved to the United States in
1976 and started producing
music, including for the popular
Babla and Kanchan.
He eventually set up RBC
Radio, America's first 24-hour
Asian Indian radio network,
I m


broadcasting from atop the
Empire State Building to New
York, New Jersey and other
U.S. cities.
Having acquired the means
to launch RBC Radio into film
production, Jagessar set out to
write the script for a movie
based on his grandmother's
stories.
The full motion picture
surrounds the arrival of
Indian indentured labourers
to this country in 1838 and
includes the departure from
Calcutta, the ravages of the
sail to these shores and their
settlement among the freed
African slaves.
For the casting, Jagessar
roped in an international team,
including Bollywood actor
Kumar Gaurav, who plays the

lead male role.
Gaurav's character, Laxman,
is that of an Indian indentured
labourer who left Calcutta to
work in British Guiana, and if
the scenes we were allowed to
witness are any giveaway, it
appears that he led a revolt on
the ship Hesperus, against the
vicious "slave driver" David,
played by British actor Thomas
Garvey.
"What you would find me
doing most of the time is
whipping a lot of people. I find
pleasure in people's suffering",
Garvey said, gun resting on his
shoulder as he spoke about his
character.
Garvey's visit to Guyana for
the production is his first to
South America. He said that
when he was offered the role, he
had no idea that East Indians
had come to the Caribbean after
the abolition of slavery.
"It was quite interesting
getting to know the story,
especially about the mixing of
the indentured labourers and the
slaves," he said.
Gaurav became familiar with
Guyana in the 1980s when he
received fan mail from Guyanese
who came to love him after hit
movies like Teri Kasam and
Love Story.
"It was a great experience.
Beautiful country, warm people.
Let's hope the people of Guyana
enjoy this movie and enjoy
having the world know your

history," Gaurav said.
On the final day of the last
shoot, scores of Berbicians came
out to the beach to get a look at
Gaurav.
Among them was Sumintra
Bhagwandi, 69, of Number 64
Village, Corentyne. She
remembered him from the hit
movies of the '80s.
She managed to both shake
Gaurav's hand and give him a
kiss.
Gaurav has left the country
already, in preparation for his
latest Bollywood offering,
Saach.

GUYANA-ABEAUTIFUL
EXPERIENCE
The main female role in the
movie is Aarti Bathija, 18.
British Guiana 1838 is her
first major project and she was
more than happy to have landed
the job.
She was born in India, but
her family moved to New
York when she was two years
old.
Bathija, just out of high
school, took acting classes during
the summer holidays and
scooped a childhood role in Rani
Mukherjee's first movie Raja Ki
Aayegi Bharrat. He has also
played roles in TV serials and
appeared in a number of
commercials.
She met up with Jagessar at
a film festival in New York and
landed the part of Urmila in
British Guiana 1838.
Bathija said she was very
excited about playing the part of
Urmila as the character is a
strong person, having chosen to
come to British Guiana all by
herself.
"Urmila is a strong-willed
person. Everyone would not
have done what she did," Bathija
said as she watched the final
taping of the movie here.
"This film has definitely
been the best training I've ever
had. Spending seven weeks in
Guyana has taught me a lot. It was
a beautiful experience, and I would
love to relive it," she said.
With the local leg of the
shoot complete, Jagessar and his
warnam head lor England where the
final taping will take place.
The movie will be
marketed worldwide and
Jagessar is counting on
success.

Your mistake, my

mistake all the

same to the brain
WASHINGTON (Reuters) Why is it so annoying to watch
S someone else make a mistake? Maybe because it affects the
same areas of the brain as when a person makes his or her
-I-----own mistake, Dutch researchers said last week.
Experiments in which volunteers tried a computer task and then
watched each other do the same thing showed the brain reacted in a
S similar way whether the observer made the mistake, or watched
someone else make it.
Writing in the May issue of the journal Nature Neuroscience,
S' the team at the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands said their
S. b findings help shed light on how human beings learn by watching
one another.
For their experiment Hein van Schie and colleagues hooked up
16 men and women to electrodes to measure brain activity and then
sat them in front of a display screen with a joystick. The task was
simple to move the joystick in the same direction as certain arrows
appearing on the screen.
"Participants were instructed to respond both quickly and
..accurately in the direction of the.center arrowhead," Van Schie and
colleagues wrote.
After each trial, the volunteers were told whether they were
S- correct.
When people realized they had made an error, a distinctive
electrical signal arose from a brain region called the anterior cingulate
cortex.
The same thing happened when the volunteers watched other
volunteers try the experiment and make the occasional mistake, the
researchers found.
"These data suggest that similar neural mechanisms are
.. involved in monitoring one's own actions and the actions of
others," they concluded.

Smokey Robinson



bares his soul in gospel foray

By Dean Goodman


L OS ANGELES
(Reuters) -
"Are you a
believer? ... Do
you believe in God, at all? ...
Do you think you're just
flesh and blood, and that's
it?"
No, it's not a missionary
dropping in at dinner time. It's
an enthusiastic pitchman named
William Robinson Jr. He is
known best as soul music icon
"Smokey Robinson, one of
Motown's foremost figures who
co-wrote such hit tunes as
'Shop Around', 'You Beat Me
to the Punch', 'My Girl' and
'The Tears of a Clown'.
Bob Dylan once said
Robinson was "America's
greatest living poet."
In a 45-year career,
Robinson's name has ended up
on more than 4,000 songs. His
mailbox overflows with royalty
checks, some for songs he has
forgotten about. But he sees
himself as merely the conduit


such is the hypnotic rhythm and
soothing melody of his voice.
His enthusiasm is so infectious
that Satan himself might be
persuaded to change teams. His
green eyes twinkling, Robinson
shares his faith with church
groups, students, prisoners,
rehab patients, gangsters and
the occasional reprobate
journalist.

'NOT RELIGIOUS'

"I'm not a religious man,"
Robinson said at the outset of
a recent interview. "But I
have a great relationship with
God."
.As he became a multi-
faceted superstar in the 1960s,
rising to become Motown
Records founder Berry Gordy
Jr.'s second-in-command,
Robinson insists he never
swerved from his faith or let
fame go to his head.
Even with all those
screaming women in the


golf. He plays whenever he can,
and collects golf memorabilia
like old books and clubs.
He started writing the songs
on 'Food for the Spirit' about
the time of his meltdown. His
original plan was to pitch them
to friends in the gospel
community like Yolanda Adams
(news), Kirk Franklin and
Donnie McClurkin.
"I kept stockpiling them,
and the Lord impressed upon
me just to sing them myself and
let it be known," he said. "Had
I not come out with an
inspirational CD, you perhaps
would have never known that I
feel like I feel, that all songs, all
the music I've ever done is a
gift from God."

IN ELVIS'STEPS

Plenty of secular artists
have crossed over. Notably Elvis
Presley, a walking encyclopedia
on church music, won his three
Grammys for gospel recordings.


Bob Dylan's first solo Grammy
was for a gospel song. But for
all his success, Robinson has
just one competitive Grammy to
his name, for the 1987 track
'Just to See Her'.
While many gospel songs
threaten hellfire and damnation,
Robinson doesn't want to
frighten people.
His positive outlook
comes through on the track
'Jesus Told Me To Love You',
whose love-thy-enemy theme
is central to Robinson's
expression of faith.
"I love the guys in the Ku
Klux Klan as one of my human
brothers," he said. "But I don't
have to like them ... If one of
them was in a burning lake, or
something like that, and I was
there and I had the chance to
save them, I would."
But don't start calling him
a saint.
"I'm just a follower of
Jesus. And a real follower of
Jesus would do that.


and his songs "gifts from God."
Which brings us to the
opening salvo, as he attempts to
bring God into the life of an
interviewer. For Robinson, 64,
is on the campaign trail for his
first album of religious music.
'Food for the Spirit'
features nine self-penned
inspirational tunes, such as
the unambiguous 'Standing
on Jesus' and 'I Praise &
Worship You Father', all sung
with the mellifluous high
vocals that catapulted
Robinson to fame in the
1960s as frontman with the
Miracles. It was released on
April 20 via Minneapolis-
based indie label Liquid 8
Records.
.. Even. when he .speaks, he
might as well be back on stage,


audience?
"That still happens," he
interrupted, more matter-of-
factly than immodestly.
"Everywhere I go. But that
doesn't let me think, 'OK, this
is Smokey Robinson and I am
hot stuff."'
Robinson's world
did collapse in
the mid-1980s
when he became
a cocaine addict and his 27-year
marriage to Claudette, his high-
school sweetheart and former
Miracle, broke up. But
somebody was evidently
looking out for him. He said a
preacher ultimately drove out
his demons, and he has been
clean ever since. He also recently
remarried.
These days, his only vice is


God to the woman, talking to her about anger and
bitterness. Derry is said to have told the woman that she was
a missionary and that God had put a call on her to reach out
to Amerindians, since they were known to be exploited.
Derry and her daughter left after the two weeks, saying they
were going to Guyana. In February 2000, the woman allegedly
received a call from Derry in Guyana informing her that her sister-
in-law was going to die before year's end and that she should
prepare herself.
The businesswoman's sister-in-law had been battling with
cancer and did in fact die in June of that year. About a month
before the woman died, Derry returned to the couple's home, when
she told the sick woman she should be baptised because she was
getting visions. The couple also decided that they would be
baptised.
Before the woman died, Derry also told the couple to go on a
40-day fast to break generations, sins and curses. During that
period, they could eat no meat, dairy products, salt or sugar. It
was like a Daniel fast, one former member commented.
Before that time, Derry told the couple that the Lord had told
her to conduct marriage seminars. The couple invited family and
friends to the basement for the marriage seminars which were held
on weekends.
Rehoboth Ministries' membership grew in size to some 16
people. Last week, the church had but two members.
Ex-members told the Sunday Guardian that Derry used the
Bible in her teachings. They said they grew spiritually.
Derry moved back and forth in the couple's home. Eventually
she moved in and stayed for a long time, during which she made
several trips to Guyana.
During this time, Derry is alleged to have told the woman in
whose house she was staying that the Lord had taken away all
her finances and that the Lord had stopped her wheels from
turning.
"She told the businesswoman that the Lord said her daughter
needed to go to university," a past member said. The woman was
asked for a loan of Can$11 440.28 to finance
Christal's education at the University of Toronto. This loan was
to have been repaid in three months' time or less; this did not
happen and the couple had to sell their car which was used as
security for the loan they took out in their name.
After the loan incident, Derry instructed the couple to do
devotions which consisted of two or more hours of reading the
Bible. The couple could not gossip nor could they complain. They
were also told to be careful in their thoughts.


The couple continued lending Derry money; one former
member said Derry quoted biblical scriptures to them about
hospitality, tithes and offerings and giving freely from the heart
and warned the couple they would be cursed if they did not make
these offerings.
The couple began to dig into their business finances to meet
what they believed were the needs of the church. Telephone bills
skyrocketed, credit cards went bankrupt, several calls were made
from their home to Brazil on behalf of the church.
In one instance, the couple was told that bandits were after
the missionary in Brazil and that calls were needed to be made
every 15 minutes, one former member recalled.
Members were also made to give up valued possessions as
part of a sacrificial offering, one member was told to throw away
jewels amounting to US$5 000, while another, pulling off jewelry
to offer, was told 'no jewelry, just cash'.

FRAUD SQUAD CALLED IN
The elite police department was called in late last week after
senior police officers received certain information about the
operations of the Rehoboth Ministries. Fraud Squad officers were
expected to be in Tobago this weekend to interview some of the
victims.
Several former members of the church interviewed by the
Sunday Guardian last week said they were afraid to go to the police
for fear of lawmen laughing at them.
"The story sounds fictional. Imagine telling this to the police.
They will surely laugh at us. If I was an officer, I would laugh
too. We were really big idipts," one person said.
The lawmen said t ie victims could really have been
brainwashed into giving-away their money and other valuable
possessions. Charges of obtaining money under false pretenses
could be laid against Derry, police said. Police are urging the victims
to come forward and tell their stories.
Bishop also said victims must take their problems to the
police.
"It sounds like fraud and that's a matter for the police. There
is a Fraud Squad and I believe this is the kind of thing that occupies
their time," Bishop said.
Victims have said they are now afraid to go to church because
of their alleged experiences with Derry. "A lot of things we did for
her were done in the name of the Lord," they charged.
They said they no longer knew whom to trust and preferred
to watch religious television programmes with family members to
keep them close to God.
',T0.t's where pay siritual food is coming from now,' one
businesswoman said. ........

Unless you have a Cubist perspective, staring something in the face is as simple and
direct as you can get. The hardest part may be finding the courage or knowing when the
moment is right. When your decision affects others, they might suffer if you choose
purely out of self-interest. On the other hand, y6u might be the only one who's putting
yourself under so much pressure. It could be another day or so before you're back t6
your usual proactive self. Try to be patient.
STAURUS -- Money matters are old news, yet some people insist on discussing them
as if they were the next hot item. Exercise beckons from the treadmill of your usual
fitness routine, but somehow it seems less important now. You should be taking greater
personal responsibility. Why aren't you interested in these things? Your life is locked
into a familiar, comfortable pattern, but every once in a while you just want to be free.
Will one day off make that much of a difference? Come back to this tomorrow with a
fresh approach. Apd who knows? Maybe you'll take an even longer vacation.
GEMINI Good enough is perfect for you. When it comes to fun, you're the ultimate
judge. These days you're in high spirits, fine-tuned to the wavelength of pure pleasure.
You're a sucker for any lure that speaks to you. Thanks to a blast of positive commu-
nity energy from the stars, you're the ultimate social animal, no matter how public or
private the party might be. You can talk and dance at the same time, all conversations
accentuated by the spirit of the moment. When you're this happy and at ease with
yourself, it's given that others will love you.

CANCER -- You miss certain things about the old neighbourhood, but there are other
ways in which you'd never go back. Familiar territory comes with immature or unset-
dling relationships that you grew out of a long time ago. Unresolved feelings about these
things might not be a problem under normal circumstances, but suddenly you're com-
pelled to revisit them. Passing time intensifies an old weirdness. Now that you have
such clearly defined limits of what you'll tolerate, it's hard to imagine how you ever
embraced such excess or uncertainty. Start out by forgiving yourself. At least you'll
have that.
LEO -- Pure delight finds its own way into everyone's life, even for those in the habit
O of seeking it. Sometimes you can prepare for these visits, and other times they catch
you completely off guard..Either way, you're the perfect host. Everyone around you
arrives at a state of mutual agreement and happy understanding. From where you stand
now, friendship and romance are virtually interchangeable. But why are you standing
when you could be cozying down and getting comfortable with this experience? Al-
though the stars are nice enough to create this space for you, it won't be here forever.
VIRGO -- If you're not in touch with your inner musician, you're living out a musical
_j metaphor. Maybe you start by taking it from the top, but you wander away from the
score. Unlike some of the wilder jams you've had in your life, this one is slow and
precise. The rhythm is easy to follow as you weave around it, exploring melodic varia-
tions at your leisure. Improvise economically instead of splashing out wildly. You can
have as many bars as you want to prove what kind of chops you have with this ax.
Just try not to step on the other players' toes.
LIBRA -- People are falling in love wherever you look. Those who are already in love
fall deeper into lust or friendship. This is how things happen, and this is your current
focus and area of expertise. The boundaries between self and other grow blissfully in-
distinct. And if you happen to be alone in spite of all this coupling, energy, that's good,
too. Reach deeply into a thing or event that means a lot to you. Intimacy feels com-
pletely appropriate. The world is a dazzling place, and you're just one shining part that
blends seamlessly and harmoniously with the whole.

SCORPIO -- You're acutely aware of footsteps. Maybe you're waiting for the right
person to approach. Maybe you're afraid that someone is going to stomp all over your
delicate dream or smoothly moving process. Either way, it feels as if there's a lot at
stake. It's hard to imagine an alternative, whether good or bad, when you're dead set on
a certain outcome. Would it be such a surprise if nothing bad happened? Astrologically
speaking, you're in a good space right now. You still have a few days left to find the
answer and play with it.
SAGITTARIUS -- You're motivated to take it easy, as oxymoronic as that sounds. You
have many good friends and no particular agenda. As you make your meandering way
along the road, adventures happen for the price of simply being in the right place at the
right time. As you're well aware, an adventure differs from an ordeal because it's an
experience that you appreciate and maybe even crave. There are no secrets here, no
hidden mechanisms, no wizards behind the curtain. What you see is what you get. You
have excellent vision, and that makes you the master of all you survey.
CAPRICORN -- It's a fine thing that you're persistent. Others would run and hide in
the face of endless discouragement, but you're out there pounding the pavement, plug-
ging away or pulling on that rope with all your might. You like to remain objective and
rational even when the odds don't appear favorable. A challenge feels more like a game
than a do-or-die commitment, and that makes the prospect of failure a little less awful.
Meanwhile, by always being on and ready, you work your way to the front of the line
for the nDext stroke of good luck.
AQUARIUS -- You'd rather split the difference than dividing and conquering. Most
arguments seem silly or redundant once everyone agrees on the basics. You're good at
finding that point, whatever it is. From your elevated perspective, you can see how
populations and demographic groups are only abstract labels for a lot of people that are
essentially equal. Be aware of your role, and take it seriously as you do something for
humanity. Of course, that doesn't mean that you have to be serious. The world could
always use more of your humor and good cheer. A little subversive thinking wouldn't
hurt, either.
PISCES -- It's been a long week. Exhaustion is only natural. The day feels longer than
it needs to be, which is a shame if you're obligation free. Why not explore the low-
energy science of relaxation? You brighten your world when you understand that the
only thing you have to accomplish is pleasing yourself. The right people may show up
to spark your interest. The next thing you know, misery and complaint are far behind,-
like a boring soap opera that happened to someone else. Take your time and finish last,
if that's what makes you happy. There's no deadline here.

I MIGHT have
mentioned before that
unlike a human fetus,
which is usually only one by
itself in the womb surrounded
by its own thin covering
membrane (the amniotic sac),
the several puppies in a bitch's
womb are each surrounded by
its own amniotic sac.
When each pup is born, its
surrounding sac is ruptured and
the puppy is set free to breathe
on its own. If this does not
occur, then the massaging


motion of the mother's tongue
licking at the pup clears away
the membrane around the
puppy. If this, for whatever
reason, does not occur and the
pup-enclosing sac remains, then
you will have to intervene, so
that the pup can begin breathing
on its own. Intervention (only
if the mother dog has not torn
open the surrounding
membrane) means that you
must tear open the sac and
remove it. Author/researchers
differ on whether you must feed


l^^iHI


this membrane to the mother.
My own opinion is that she
should be given the membrane
to eat, because it contains
hormones which are needed for
her milk let-down. Anyway,
that is what. I was taught long
years ago.
Now don't just rip off the
membrane. You should make
the first tear in the area of
the puppy's mouth and then
enlarge the tear by working
your way backwards over the
pup's body. You may find that
there is some fluid (which
was in the amniotic sac) still
remaining around the
puppy's nostrils. .You don't
want the pup to aspirate the
liquid when the first breath
is taken by the pup. This
means that you have to wipe


1 2


the liquid away from the
mouth and nostrils. If some
of the liquid is already in the
passageway of the nostrils or
mouth, you have to suck this
fluid out. You may use a
syringe with a small conus at
the end, or use a rubber bulb
syringe, or some absorptive
tissue (toilet paper) which
you roll into a point and
place it in the nostrils/mouth.
This tearing off of the
membrane and sucking up of
the fluid should take place
within 30 seconds of birth of
the pup.
Some textbooks describe an
alternative method that can be
used to clear away the
threatening fluid in the nostrils.
They advise that the puppy be
held in your hands in such a
way that the head is supported
while affording you the
opportunity of swinging the
pup downwards, stopping
abruptly when its nose is
pointing to the floor. The
centrifugal force created expels
the fluid from the nostrils. I am
just a little fearful of this
method, because owners are
usually already a bit flustered
during the birth process, and the


then from front to back. If the
puppy still will not breathe,
place your mouth over his
mouth and nostrils and breathe
out gently until you see his
chest expand. Do not exhale too
forcefully as this can rupture
his lungs. Then remove your
mouth to allow the puppy to
exhale. Repeat this several times
until the puppy is breathing and
crying. Place him/her on the
bitch's nipple.
Next week we'll discuss th
caesarian operation as promiseL
last week.
Please vaccinate your pets
and adopt-a-pet from GSPCA's
Animal Clinic and Shelter. Also,

and neutering programme by

GOODBYE TO LONG-TIM


Y GOODBYE TO LONG-TIME


BY HOWARD BREUER
L OS ANGELES
(Reuters) -
Nearly 20 years
after recording
the ground-breaking charity
album 'We Are the World',
producer Quincy Jones is at
it again assembling an all-
star ensemble concert to raise
money for children's centers
in war-ravaged cities.
'We Are the Future' will be
held in Rome on May 16 at
Circus Maximus, site of the
city's ancient chariot races.
At a luncheon earlier this
month at his Bel Air, California,
home, Jones said the 4 1/2-hour
concert to support his Glocal
Forum will be unprecedented in
its worldwide diversity, with
L.L. Cool J, Alicia Keys, Norah
Jones, Natalie Cole, Angelina
Jolie, Andrea Bocelli, Oprah
Winfrey, the cast of 'Stomp',
and artists from South Africa,
Turkey, Pakistan and even Iraq.
Apparently not invited is
pop star Michael Jackson,
although Jones declined to
directly answer why. Jackson, a
key figure in recording 'We Are
the World', is currently charged
with child, molestation, with
authorities holding his passport.
Organisers expect that
through sponsors, music and
DVD sales, and charitable
contributions, the concert
will generate enough money
to build six children centers
in war-torn and impoverished
cities and fund their annual
costs.
While organizers did not say
how much they hoped to raise,
they said each center would cost
about $1 million a year to
operate.
The forum opened its first
center on April 8 in Kigali,
Rwanda, on the 10th
anniversary of the Rwanda
Genocide, in which tribal
feuding killed 800,000 people in
100 days.
"The concert is sort of like
Fourth of July fireworks to get
attention for the project," said
Stephen Commins, a top official
with The World Bank who is
helping organize the effort.
Jones, who 50 years ago
played trumpet with jazz legend
Dizzy Gillespie, said he and
Gillespie were international
musical emissaries decades
before the likes of Bono and
Sting. both of whom may
appear at the event. Recalling
how he and Gillespie managed
to work their way through


different countries with
different languages, Jones said,
"It was because we knew all the
same songs. It was an amazing
feeling."
Last year, Jones met Middle
Eastern peace advocates Hani
Masri of Nablus and Uri Savir
of Tel Aviv and agreed to work
with them to find ways to not
only care for children, but to
teach them to grow up to create
a more peaceful world.
"I don't think there's ever
been more conflict in the world
simultaneously," said Jones

FIRST CENTRE OPENED
K igali's mayor,
Theoneste
Mutsindashyaka,
the guest of honour at Jones's
luncheon, said thousands of
kids, many of them street
children, flocked to Rwanda's
new centre opening day to play
football and basketball.
Mutsindashyaka said
workers at the centres will teach
birth control, AIDS prevention,
nutrition and perhaps most
importantly, tolerance. "For me,
it will be a hope for our country
and you can say never again.
Genocide, never again,"
Mutsindashyaka said.
Other such centers are
planned in Ethiopia, Eritrea,
Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, and
Palestine.
Twenty years ago, Jones,
now 71, got Michael Jackson
and Lionel Richie to write 'We
Are the World'. The song was
recorded by Jackson, Richie and
40 other performers including
Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner,
Billy Joel and Ray Charles.
The song won Grammys in
1985 for Song of the Year and
Record of the Year, and raised
more than $70 million to feed
starving Africans, The World
Bank's Commins said.
As caterers draped a
lunch buffet across Jones's
pool table, actress Sharon
Stone dropped in to express
her interest. "It's always my
desire to make sure that
children all over the world
have a safe place to eat, sleep
and be," Stone told Reuters.
"And until that's done, I have
to be a part of creating that."
Noticeably absent from the
project is Jackson. Jackson's
best-selling albums were
produced by Jones. Half of the
memorabilia in Jones's pool
room are photos of Jackson or
awards for the albums.


Even Jackson's ex-wife Lisa
Marie Presley is on a list of 34
acts that were invited but not
yet confirmed.
Jackson's donations to
Africa. have helped build
hospitals and schools and
develop child immunisation
programmes. Last month,
Jackson spoke in Washington
about wanting to visit Africa
later this year.
Ja6kson's passport is being
held by officials in Santa
Barbara, Calif., where he faces
trial for allegedly molesting a-
young fan. But he could appear
by satellite simulcast, as Sting
and some other performers are
expected'to do.
The first time Reuters
asked Jones about Jackson,
the producer ignored the
question and moved on to
other guests. The second
time, Jones said, "I'm sure he
would be interested in it."
Then he changed the subject
to the project's Web site,
www.wearethefuture.com.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -
Have you seen the one with
the monkey? The one where
Ross and Rachel take a
break? Or the one where
Joey moves out?
If all this means anything to
you, you've probably watched
the show that started out as
'Six of One' and later called
itself 'Insomnia Caf6' and
'Across the Hall' before settling
on the title Americans, and
millions of others around the
globe, have come to know and
love over the last decade -
'Friends'.
Since its September 22,
1994, debut, 'The One Where
Monica Gets a Roommate'
(every episode title starts 'The
One'), 'Friends' has ranked
consistently among the top 10
shows on U.S. television,
becoming an integral element of
pop culture-in the process.
But now, after 236
episodes, the show about six
friends who share space in one
another's apartments and meet
for coffee at 'Central Perk', a


mythical Manhattan cafe, will
conclude its 10-season run with
a one-hour retrospective and one-
hour final episode on May 6.
"It's clearly going to be
remembered as one of the great
* sitcoms of all time," said Bruce
Fretts, a senior correspondent at
TV Guide magazine. "The stars
all aligned on this show. The
perfect cast, the perfect time
slot, the perfect time in our
culture to have a show about
friends as our family."
Be it Jennifer Aniston's
hairdo which became known
simply as the 'Rachel' adorning
heads in many countries or
Matt LeBlanc's much-imitated
pickup line 'How you doin', as
Joey, the show became part of
the national psyche.

LINCHPIN OF SCHEDULE
More than that, though, it
became a linchpin of NBC's
schedule and enriched its stars -
Aniston (Rachel), Courteney
Cox Arquette (Monica), Lisa


Kudrow (Phoebe), LeBlanc
(Joey), Matthew Perry
(Chandler) and David
Schwimmer (Ross).
For creators Marta
Kanffman and David Crane, the
final show was in some ways as
much for them as for the
viewers.
"We didn't want people to
be disappointed of course, but
we're pretty tough on
ourselves, so I think mainly
what we wanted to do was make
ourselves happy," Kauffman
said on a recent conference call
with reporters.
"It's somewhere between
getting a divorce from someone
you're still in love, with and
losing someone," she said.
So is there a favourite
'friend'? Online dating site
Yahoo Personals did a survey of
1,200 singles and found 65 per
cent of single women .would
choose Chandler to marry, and
46 per cent of single men would
choose him as their best friend.
That survey also found that
more than 75 per cent of people
want Ross and Rachel to end up
together, while 53 per cent
wished they had a group of
friends like those on the show.
Though NBC has done its
fair share to promote the finale,
it has not yet fostered the same
kind of hype as six years ago,
when the end of 'Seinfeld'
became such a national
obsession that a small backlash
ensued and led The New York
Times to declare "Goodbye
Already'.
Freits said the 'Friends'
send-off will be lower key than
that of "Seinfeld', which
featured a host of guest stars and
ended up with the main
characters being sentenced to
prison.
"I think the writers-of
'Fnends' learned a lesson from
the finale of "Seinfeld'," he said.
"The) went too big and too high
concept ... it felt like something
different and strange and not
particularly funny."
The producers also worried
about o erstaying their
welcome, a common fault of
successful TV shows that try to
eke too many seasons from a
successful formula.
"We were nervous enough
about this (10th season), and it
paid off," Crane said.

Muslims observe Youman Nabi today


Emulate Prophet Muhammad


MUSLIMS throughout
Guyana today join with the
millions around the world to
observe the festival of
Youman Nabi or Eid-Milad-
Nabi., the birth anniversary
of the Prophet Muhammad.
In a message to mark the oc-
casion, President of the Central
Islamic Organisation of Guyana
(CIOG), Mr. Fazeel M. Ferouz,
reminds the entire Guyanese
Muslim community of "the im-
portance of knowing our Be-
loved Prophet Muhammad
(peace be upon him) and emu-
lating all of his states externally
and internally as well."
The full text of the
message reads:.
"As salam alaikum wa


urges Muslims


rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu to
all respected brothers and sis-
ters of the Muslim Community.
Praise be to Allah our Mer-
ciful Lord and Salutations of Al-
lah be upon Prophet
Muhammad and his family and
followers till the last day.
It gives me great pleasure
to address my brothers and
sisters in this most noble of
month of Rabi al Awal when
we observe Eid Milad al Nabi
or Youm an Nabi. During this
month and particularly on
the 12th we remember our
Holy Prophet (peace be upon
him) with renewed fervour


and enthusiasm, and remind
ourselves of the centrality of
his person to this religion.
Our Holy Prophet (peace be
upon him) is the vessel of
Allah's mercy and guidance
and the most perfect and
noble embodiment of high
character and virtue. Sadly
high character and virtue
seem to be deficient in our
age and in our community.
This, in many ways, can be
said to be the result of our
underemphasis of the Holy
Prophet in our practice and un-
derstanding of the religion.
It seems as though we are


overwhelmed by an age of
material pursuits, lusts and
violence. The face of Islam as
is presented by many of our
brothers and sisters seems al-
tered. The fashion of mili-
tancy and the rigorous con-
formity that usually accom-
panies it has infatuated many
of our youth and some el-
ders. People are occupied
and influenced by images of
Osama bin Laden and kurtas
in fatigue colours.-At the
same time, older Muslims are
warned about their "shirk"
and "bidas", and traditional
practices like our Youm an

Nabi and Qur'an Shareef are
attacked.
Yet, for all the dawah and
activity, our community still
has not made much of an impact
in this country. Though many
have been sensitised and given
useful information about this
Deen and many have accepted
the kalima (al hamdulillah), the
impact of the community that
reflects and represents our Holy
Prophet (peace be upon him) is
not felt.
Brothers and Sisters, this
month of Rabi al Awal, the sea-
son of Rasulullah (peace be
upon him) is of special impor-
tance in our context. Because it
should be obvious by now that
for change to take place in our
community and within each and
every one of us, it is our be-
loved Prophet (peace be upon
him) and his noble states and
ways that we must return to. In
order to be saved from the tri-
als of our own selves, we must
seek his (peace be upon him)
intersession with Allah,
subhanahu wa ta'ala. But there
are many brothers and sisters
who apparently do not realise
this and seek, unintentionally, to
distance the Ummah from our
Beloved Prophet (peace be
upon him). We must realise that
this is error and misguidance and
a serious evil innovation in reli-
gion that is rejected.
In this message therefore, I
remind myself and the entire
Guyanese Muslim community
of the importance of knowing
our Beloved Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon
him) and emulating all of his
states externally and internally
as well. We must seek to iden-
tify ourselves with his charac-
ter, mercy, gentleness and com-
passion not just his manner of
dress and appearance. We must
emulate his gentleness with
women, inexhaustible patience
and fortitude in the face of in-
sult, injury and strife. He was
neither a wife beater nor smug-
gler of any kind. Neither did he
walk proudly and consider any
creation below himself though


he was and is the greatest cre-
ation of Allah! He did not need
courses in conflict resolution but
was a model of peace and jus-
tice. We should be models if we
are true to his (peace be upon
him) ways.
Finally, let us love him
(peace be upon him) in our ac-
tions and obedience and in our
hearts. Let us be moved emo-
tionally beyond'description
when his name (peacc be upon
him) is mentioned and let us
demonstrate that pure, intense
love in as many ways as we can.
We should make darud abun-
dantly and greet him in the
present tense for he (peace be
upon him) is still very much
with us brothers and sisters! So
when we say ya nabi salam
alaika it should mean the return
of our Beloved Prophet
Muhammad to our lives and
hearts, when we stand in
tazeem, it should signal his true
presence through love in our
communities and when we sing
like the singing of the people of
Madina, it should usher in the
victory that comes with him
(peace be upon him) over our-
selves and the tribulations that
we face in Guyana and all the
world.
May Allah help us to
study, understand and follow
the message of our beloved
Prophet Muhammad, may He,
Most High, help us to imple-
ment this message of
Muhammad (peace be upon
him) in our lives and be living
examples of his virtue. May Al-
lah, Most High cause our lead-
ers to study the Message of our
master Muhammad (peace be
upon him) and use his advice to
bring relief to suffering human-
ity for Allah has promised in
His Quran that if we follow His
Messenger (peace be upon him)
He will set right our affairs. So
let us all, if we really want to
end human suffering, disease,
poverty and promote peace and
harmony in our country or in
the world, let us love, honour,
follow the way of Muhammad-
The Way of Islam.

GUYANESE are expected to
turn out in their thousands
today at the National Park
tarmac in Georgetown for the

rival Committee (IAC).
The gala event was originally
scheduled for the Everest Cricket

were forced to change the venue
to the National Park due to the
inclement weather.
Persons attending the Mela
are advised by the IAC to use
the Carifesta Avenue entrance to
the National Park, which is ob-
liquely opposite the original
venue.
The IAC also gave the as-
surance that the programme and
other attractions remain the same,
and that the feature performance
will still be done by the Bhangra/
Punjabi Cultural Group from
* India along with performances


Mela
by several local dance troupes,
cultural and religious groups.

non-alcoholic beverages will
be on sale by private groups.

THE Ministry of Health
has issued a fourth licence
to Davis Memorial Hospi-
tal on April 22 in keeping
with the private Hospital
Act of 1972.
Three other hospitals,
namely Georgetown Medical
Inc., formerly Prashad's, St. Jo-
seph Mercy Hospital and Wood-
lands Hospital, received their
2004 annual licences last Thurs-
day.
The 1992 Act stipulated


that licences must be issued to
private hospitals annually, but
previous enforcement of this law
was weak. The Ministry of
Health in 2003 set up an Inspec-
torate Board with the specific
mandate of working with these
private institutions to ensure
their services, equipment and ex-
pertise comply with a mutually
agreed to set of minimum stan-
dards.
A hospital's licence can be
revoked if its required stan-


dards fall below the minimum.
The act provides for closure
of a private hospital in such"
circumstances.
Minister of Health, Dr.
Leslie Ramsammy is very en-
couraged by the cooperation
given by the private hospitals
during the Ministry's inspec-
tion and has commended the
hospitals for their willingness
to work towards providing an'
acceptable quality of services
to people.

THE Central Islamic
Organisation of Guyana
(CIOG) has expressed alarm
at a news item of April 27,
carried in the Stabroek News
headlined 'Four extra public
holidays', in which it was
suggested that in the wake of
"consultations with the Mus-
lim Community" a recom-
mendation is being tabled to
substitute the Youman Nabi
holiday with Eid-Ul-Fitr.
A statement issued by Mr.
Jamal Imran of the CIOG
stated: "We ate certain that such
a substitution will not find
favour with the vast majority of
Muslims in our country and
urge caution and broad consul-
tation before any decision is
taken regarding this matter."
The organisation also said
that it wishes to see the continu-

ation of Youman Nabi due to its
central importance to the reli-
gion, even though it is of a sta-
tus below that of Eid-Ul-Fitr.
"Furthermore, we are
aware of the difficulties posed by
the declaration of a public holi-
day mere hours before it com-
mences and therefore advise that
such consultations as we sug-
gested earlier, would have to ex-
amine ways and means of ful-
filling the national legal re-
quirements and those of the
Muslim Community which in-
cludes the maintaining of the
recognition of Youman Nabi," it
added.


THE Muslin Youth League
(MYL) has said that in many
ways, the situation in our
world reflects similar situa-
tions as when the Prophet of
Islam came into the world.
Therefore, the solution for
much of the problems will lie in
looking at the life of this great
personality and how he solved
the problems in that age, a
Muslim Youth League (MYL)
of Guyana says.
In a message on this occa-
sion, the organisation calls on all
Muslims to observe special
prayers for the solidarity, pros-
perity and integrity of the Mus-


lim Community, local and
worldwide, our country and our
world at large.
The MYL also urges the
people to strengthen national
unity by emulating the foot-
steps of the Holy Prophet.
"Use the teachings of the
Holy Prophet and rekindle
our souls with the light lit by
him," the organisation said.
