ROYAL TREATMENT: The new Royal Castle fast-
food outlet on Sheriff Street, Campbellville, was initially
intended to supplement sales at the main branch then
housed at the Auto Supplies building on Hadfield and
Lombard Streets, in the heart of the city.
But that was before the fire of last November which
swept the area, leaving in its wake losses estimated in
excess of $1 billion and close to 200 jobless. The fire,
which at one point threatened the seat of government,
namely the Public Buildings across the road, started
when a speeding container truck slammed into a utility
pole in the area, thus causing a.massive power surge.
Among other businesses to have gonedunder as a result
of the fire were Auto Supplies Company.Uimited and.
Mohammed's Enterprise. :

(From page one)
areas such as trade that it
most needs help from around
the region.
President Jagdeo arrived in
Trinidad obni Tursday after
attending the opening ceremony
of a G-90 meet in Georgetown.
Of the G-90 meeting, which
ended Friday, the President said,
"such discussions are absolutely
necessary if member countries
are to fashion a world trading
system that not only takes care
of the. concerns :of the
industrialized countries but
could also find within those
arrangements a .place for the
developing countries."


Alluding to earlier remarks
by Trinidad and Tobago's Prime
Minister, Mr. Patrick Manning
that Trinidad carefully examines
current negotiations at forums
such as the WTO, ACP (Africa,
-"aibbeanandPaTcific3locJ, iiad
the Free Trade Area of the
Americas (FTAA), the
President said that as a region,
CARICOM has to have an
appropriate response.
This is to ensure that the
region creates enough space
for the development of
smaller countries as well as
Safeguard the well being of
its peoples, he said.
With reference to media
reports which gave the


impression that CARICOM
(Caribbean Community)
meetings are parochial and given
to constant squabbles, President
Jagdeo said that this was far
from the truth, since
CARICOM leaders share a
common vision.
He made specific mention
of Prime Minister Manning,
whom he said has always had
the interests of the region at
heart Nlannng also realises that
it is onl\ through a common


vision that the region can
progress, President Jagdeo said.
In an overview of the
economic situation in his own
country, the Guyanese Head-of-
State said that while Guyana
wasrich in -natural resources-
and boasts some of the most"
Scenic sights of the world, yet'
Sstillit was starved of capital.
He gave as the reason for
this position the country's
-*mabrtity to generate wealth due
to 'p.ohIps and inappropriate


economic policies" during a
significant part of its post-
independence history.
He also spoke briefly of its
huge fiscal deficit that has put
the country into an
unsustainable borrowing, and
the loss of human capital
through migration.
He said, however, that
Guyana has been trying to
reverse this latter trend by
injecting huge sums of money
into the education system so as
to rebuild the human capital
base. The debt burden has also
been significantly reduced, he
pointed out.
Earlier into the function,
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
of Go-Invest, Mr. Geoffrey
DaSilva spoke of the support
and hospitality Guyana has
received from public sector
agencies in Trinidad and Tobago,
in order to make the event


successful.
The Trinidad leg, DaSilva
noted, was the fifth stop for-the

Exposition. Similar events were

U.N.


urges fish havens as


world marks Green Day


By Emma Graham-
Harrison
BARCELONA, Spain
(Reuters) The United Na-
tions yesterday urged the
creation of ocean parks to
protect depleted fish stocks
as activists marked World


Environment Day by freeing
turtles, planting trees and de-
crying global warming.
"There's not a lot of
reason for celebration," U.N. En-
vironment Programme (UNEP)
chief Klaus Toepfer said in
Barcelona of the state of the
planet. UNEP's bleak slogan for


June 5 is 'Wanted! Seas and'
Oceans: Dead or Alive.'
A group of children re-
leased two turtles, nursed back
from injuries from fishermen's
nets, into the Mediterranean
from a Barcelona beach. From
Australia to Zambia, activists
tried to clean beaches, promote


renewable energy or plant trees.
"Society can no longer
view the world's oceans as a
convenient dumping ground for
our waste, or as an unlimited
source of plenty," U.N. Secre-
tary-General Kofi Annan said in
a call for urgent action.
He noted that govern-


ments agreed at an Earth Sum-
mit in Johannesburg in 2002 to
try to restore depleted fish
stocks by 2015 and to set up
more protected marine areas,
like wildlife parks on land, by
2012.
"This last goal...is es-
pecially important," he said in
a statement. "Less than 0.5 per
cent of marine habitats are pro-
tected compared with 11.5 per


cent of global land area."
About 75 per cent of
fish stocks, from cod to tuna, are
caught faster than they can
breed, and every year plastic

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -
Former U.S. President
Ronald Reagan, who forged a
conservative revolution that


transformed American poli-
tics, died yesterday after a de-
cade-long battle with
Alzheimer's disease. He was
93.
His wife, Nancy, and


family members had gathered at
his bedside at his house in the
Bel Air district of Los Angeles.
The White House said
President Bush had been in-
formed of Reagan's death.
A White House
spokeswoman said Fred Ryan,
Reagan's chief of staff in Cali-
fornia, had telephoned White
House chief of staff Andrew
Card to inform him.
"Andy told the presi-
dent that President Reagan had
died," spokeswoman Claire
Buchan said in Paris, where
Bush is on a European tour.
She said the White
House planned to issue a state-
ment shortly about the death.

Regional commentary:


Caricom's "democracy'


challenge for OAS meeting


By Rickey Singh

THE 34th General Assembly
of the Organisation o
American States (OAS
which begins today in Quito
Ecuador, will be quite
challenging for the
Caribbean Community anm
other member states of the
hemispheric body on the
critical issue of constitution
governance and democracy.
How committed are
the 34 countries of the
OAS where Cuba's seat
has remained vacant for
some 42 years to the
Inter-American
Democratic Charter will
be put to the test as it
relates to the interruption
of constitutional
governance in Haiti.
That is, if the
CARICOM bloc of states
succeeds in getting on the
agenda a draft resolution
to assess the political
situation in Haiti in the
context of the OAS
Democratic Charter.
Earlier efforts by
CARICOM made
somewhat more
problematic by a surprising
vacillation by two of it
members, have been frustrated
by the expediency of language
and .procedures.
Mark that down largely tc
the overt and cover
pressures of the Unitec
States of America, whicl
remains adamantly opposed
to any independent
assessment of how th
Presidency of Jean Bertranm
Aristide suddenly terminated
on February 29, as if th
Washington administratioE
really has skeletons in it
Haitian cupboard.
The broader concern is alsi
to examine the existing political
climate and efforts by th
Washington-created interim
regime in Port-au-Prince for
speedy return to constitution
governance based of


competitive and internationally
supervised elections.
CARICOM's concern for
constitutional governance in
Haiti should not be viewed as
defence of the Aristide
presidency, or any of the
allegations pertaining to
financial corruption,
assassinations and .political
thuggery.
The Community's
governments had made clear


JEAN BERTRAND ARISTIDE
g from the beginning of their call
s for an independent probe into
d the circumstances of Aristide's
e departure from power, that
Haiti remains a member of the
o Community, and that practical
t efforts would continue to be
d made to help secure and provide
h relevant assistance to the
d Haitian people for whose
t welfare they remain committed.
e The fundamental
d difference relates to non-
d recognition of the interim
e regime in Port-au-Prince
n and, by extension, its non-
s involvement in the councils
of CARICOM, until there
o could be some positive
l arrangements for the
e modalities of a working
a relationship that includes an
a assessment- of the crucial
al issue of constitutional
n governance.


It is rather instructive that
the George Bush administration
and the interim Haitian regime
of the loquacious Gerard
Latortue who has been rather
dismissive of CARICOM and
anxious to embrace armed rebels
as "freedom fighters" should
be so intent in frustrating any
effort for an independent probe
into the circumstances of
Aristide's departure from
power; even the modified
approach to invoke Article 20
of the OAS Democratic Charter
on interruption of constitutional
governance.
Article 20 states: "In the
event of an unconstitutional
alteration of the constitutional
regime that seriously impairs
the democratic order in a
member state, any member state
or the OAS Secretary General
may request the immediate
convocation of the Permanent
Council to undertake a collective
assessment of the situation and
to take such decisions as it
deems appropriate".
That is exactly what
CARICOM has so far been
frustrated in achieving within
the councils of the OAS
Permanent Council. Hence, the
effort to extend the initiative to
the three-day General Assembly
in Quito that begins today.
In Quito, not only ALL
Community partners must
stand up and be counted-in
testing the letter and spirit of.
Article 20 of the Democratic
Charter. So too should those
Latin American states that have
expressed their own concerns
about the implications of a
legitimate government being
interrupted by armed rebellion
and lawlessness.
US Secretary of State
Colin Powell will attend the
meeting.


US asks:for']extrad'Itio

ofI I I IorC lm I a. l


By Phil Stewart

BOGOTA, Colombia
(Reuters) The United States
has requested the extradition
of Simon Trinidad, the most
senior member of Colombia's
FARC guerrilla army ever
captured, the guerrilla's law-
yer said.
Trinidad, a former high so-
ciety banker who joined the
Revolutionary Armed Forces of
Colombia, or FARC, in 1987,
was served a copy of the extra-
dition request this week in con-
nection with drug trafficking,
kidnapping and terrorism
charges.
"There are two very vague
charges that refer to shipping, or-
conspiring to ship, five kilo-
grams or more of cocaine and
taking hostages," Trinidad's
lawyer, Oscar Silva, said in an
interview late on Friday.
"But they don't say what
issues, specifically, are at issue,"
Silva added.
Colombia's Supreme Court


would now have to rule on the
extradition request, he said.
U.S. officials could not be
immediately reached for com-
ment, but the presidential pal-
ace confirmed the United States
had made a formal request for
Trinidad's extradition.
The chief of Colombia's in-
vestigative police said earlier
this year that his forces were
gathering evidence linking
Trinidad to the 1997 kidnapping
and killing of an American geolo-
gist working in northern Colom-
bia as a mining consultant.
American Frank Pescatore was
taken hostage by the FARC in De-
cember 1996 and killed in Febru-
ary 1997. Colombian authorities
say the unit that kidnapped
Pescatore answered to Trinidad.
Silva said the extradition re-
quest did not mention a specific
kidnapping.
Trinidad admits to. being a
rebel, for which he has already
been sentenced to nearly seven
years in jail, but denies having
planned kidnapping or even


being an important commander.
His arrest was a major vic-
tory for Colombian President
Alvaro Uribe, who has boosted
defence spending with strong
support from the United States.
Last month, Trinidad was
sentenced to 35 years in jail for
kidnapping a former mayor of
the city of Valledupar. He faces
dozens of other criminal charges
in Colombia.
Authorities say he used his
experience as a bank manager to
identify kidnap victims for
FARC, which relies on ransoms
for much of its funding.
The FARC, branded a
"terrorist" organisation by.
the United States, says it
wants to impose a socialist
state. The.40-year-old conflict
claims thousands of lives a
year.

Lara's


'quit'



decision


THE tension and frustration that have affected
so many board members, management officials and
players of West Indies Test cricket, now seem to have
pushed Brian Lara into making a terrible decision:
He will step down from the captaincy of the West
Indies Cricket Team, he said, should his side fail to win
the current second and final test match against
Bangladesh being played off at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
It may have been his way to jolt his team into the
best possible performance to avoid the ignominy of de-
feat by the Bangladeshis who have never won any of
some 30 Test matches played.
But it is a decision fraught with danger in that
others within the team may be inclined to walk away
behind the legendary Lara with some measure of their


own guilt in contributing to the prevailing low, humiliat-
ing performances of the once internationally famous
and highly rated West Indies Team.
To judge from the first two days of the current
match in this renowned game of glorious uncertain-
ties, it is quite possible that Lara may not have to quit
as captain. Victory for the West Indies cannot be ruled
out.
True, his leadership has often been the source
of controversies, particularly among those, in and out
of the region's media, who seem so displeased with
his unpredictable performances with the bat, and even
in making decisions on the field.
Of course, the anti-Lara lobby does not qualify
to make the best judgement on his leadership, any-
more than those who have been so prejudiced against
Carl Hooper as captain and kept pummelling him.
We did not like the circumstances under which
the captaincy of Hooper, a great player and fine gentle-
man of West Indies cricket, came to an end, and with it
his involvement in international Test cricket.
What is of immediate relevance, however, is
that the anti-Lara lobby does not succeed in forcing
him out, especially at this time when it is certainly not
easy to identify the one to whom he should hand over
the baton of leadership.
The young and very promising vice-captain,
Ramnaresh Sarwan himself betrays no anxieties to
assume the captaincy should Lara, with whom he is
known to have a very good relationship, decides to
step down before the coming England tour.


Perhaps Lara and all other members of the cur-
rent side playing against Bangladesh should, along with
potential inclusions for the coming England tour, be
encouraged to participate in a special retreat to seri-
ously reflect on their respective weaknesses, includ-
ing attitudinal problems, and what new strengths they
can together bring in a new effort to restore the West
Indies Test Team to a place of admiration and honour.
After all, the problems facing West Indies Cricket
will simply not disappear with either victory against
Bangladesh, or Lara's quitting as captain in the event
of a negative outcome.

Books-to enrich Caribbean lives


The IRP collection


CARIBBEAN bookshelves
are being expanded and en-
riched by a commendable vi-
sion and commitment of Ian
Randle Publishers (IRP) of
Jamaica that could only prove
to our ultimate benefit as the
diverse peoples of a region
who need to know so much
more about ourselves in or-
der to contribute to a better
life and future.
With over 200 titles in
some 34 years to its credit, the
S'IRP' logo of the Kingston-based
publishing enterprise is increas-
ingly becoming quite familiar to
Readers of serious works, in and
out of the Caribbean region.
In his characteristic
unassuming manner, the enter-.
prising Ian Randle, founder of
IRP, moved among academics,
cultural -personalities, media
people and others at events in
Barbados last month when he
came for a conference of the
Association of Caribbean His-
torians.
He was readynot only
to participate in the launch of
two more books by the Barba-
dos-born Caribbean historian
Hilary Beckles 'Great House
Rules' and its companion 'Chat-
tel House Blues'.
The Jamaican pub-
lisher, who may well have laid
a solid foundation with IRP for
a much talked about Caribbean
Publishing House, was armed
wVith the latest collection of
books released for 2003 and
2004 as well as a draft 2004-
2005 catalogue of recent and
forthcoming publications.
Think of the widest


range of subjects pertaining to Car-
ibbean peoples and our ways of
life history, literature and drama,
art and leisure, economics, politics
and international relations, sociol-
ogy and religion, education, biog-
raphy and memoirs, law, arts and
leisure and Ian Randle Publishers
have been imaginatively engaged in
the process.
When one thinks of a lean
period in the history of publica-
tions in the Caribbean of very rel-
evant studies by some of our out-
-* M E. -


standing academics, a few of them
having had to mortgage properties
to ensure publication "of thejr
books, IRP stands today as a tre-
mendous influence for current ef-
forts by a still fledgling Caribbean
Publishers Network (CPN).
As a journalist of this re-
gion, it has been my good fortune
to have benefited from the publi-
cations of IRP, especially the
works published within the past
five years offering inspiring per-
spectives on contemporary re-
gional and international develop-
ments; on issues of governance,
security, globalisation and our
shared future through economic


and cultural integration.

TIMELY
CONTRIBUTIONS

Some of the very use-
ful contributions in the range
of IRP publications within the
past four years would be:
'Contending with'
Destiny (The Caribbean in the
21st Century), edited by pro-
fessors Kenneth Hall and Denis
Benn, later to jointly edit also
'Governance in the Age of
Globalisation Caribbean Per-
spectives'.
Both are valuable
publications with analysesby
some of the finest intellectual
minds of the Caribbean region
as presented at conferences
sponsored, variously, between
1999 and 2002 by the Univer-
sity of the West Indies,
CARICOM Secretariat aid the
Caribbean Development Bank.
A cause for regret, as
voiced by some of the present-
ers themselves at those confer-
ences, is that too offen contri-
butions are largely focused on
the Anglophone region which,
though our proud castle, re-.
mains small in the Gieater Car-
ibbean.
IRP had also released
'Globalisation A Calculus of
Inequality', joint publication of
Benn and Hall, in which.they
examined the phenomenon of
globalisati8n from the perspec-
tives of the poor and undevel-
oped southern patch of the
globe, to help inform develop-
ing nations in the shaping of
economic and social policies
Benn, who is Michael
Manley Professor of Public Af-
fairs/Public Polity at the UWI
Mona Campus, is perhaps one


of the more prolific authors of
books released by IRP, his most
recent being 'Multilateral Diplo-
macy and the Economics of
Change'; and 'The Caribbean -
An Intellectual History (1774-
2003)'.
Well respected for his
research and analyses on issues
of Caribbean intellectual history,
governance and economic devel-
opment, Benn's 'Multilateral Di-
plomacy and the Economics of
Change' constitutes a lucid dis-
course on the vision and efforts
of the developing countries that
contributed to the spawning of
the New International Economic
Order (NIEO)
I must confess to a par-
ticular attraction to what is
among IRP's latest released pack-
age of books Benn's focus on
our region's "intellectual his-
tory" that spans some 600 years
in the growth and development'
of political ideas from the late
18th century to an era of 'Black
consciousness and Black affirina-
tion', with the latter embracing
the imagination and struggles
-from Marcus Garvey to Walter
Rodney.

INTELLECTUAL
HISTORY

A significant revision of
-an earlier published work in the
1970s, Benn has taken into con-
sideration his own deep appre-
ciation for the seminal works of
Gordon Lewis -'Main Currents
in Caribbean Thought: The His-
torical Evolution of Caribbean
Society in its Ideological Aspect'
and Paget Henry's 'Caliban Rea-
son' in his presentation of the
current version.
With 26 pages of valu-
able references and 10 pages of


index that should be of much in-
terest to scholars, researchers
and readers of wide-ranging in-
terest, Benn's intellectual history


of the Caribbean carefully
contextualise the contributions.
by some of our leading thinkers.
The examination begins
with an assessment of the planter
historians and the old represen-
tative system (by Edward Long
and Bryan Edwards); and cul-
minates with the "intellectual di-
mensions of black protest (from
Garvey to Rodney).
There are to be found
also Benn's interpretations of the
ideas of icons like J.J Thomas,
Eric Williams; Arthur Lewis,
Lloyd Best, George Beckford
and Norman Girvan (a surpris-
ihg omission being William
Demas); and C,L.R.James and
Cheddi Jagan
A wealth of informa-
tion and analyses on current na-
tional/regional issues like crime-
and security and the significance
* of a Caribbean Court of Justice
(CCJ) also await readers keen
enough to make the time and ef-
fort to secure two other new IRP
- publications.
These are Ivelaw Lloyd
Griffithd 'Caribbean Security in
the Age of Terror (Challenge and
Change)'; and Duke Pollard's
'The Caribbean Court of Justice


- Closing the Circle of Indepen-
dence'.
Pollard's 'CCJ' should
prove a handy reference source
for an understanding of the his-
tory of such a regional institu-
tion, its importance in the func-
tioning of a Caribbean Single


Market and Economy
(CSME) and development of a
West Indian jurisprudence.
Griffith's 'Challenge
and Change' is a multi-faceted
approach to national/regional
security in its widest dimension
at a time of global terrorism, and,
is a welcome companion to his
earlier'Drugs and Security in the
-Caribbean' published in 1997 by
Pennsylvania State University
Press.
SBasically a collabora-
Stive effort involving the UWI,
Florida International University
and the Jamaica'Defence Force,
this offering by Griffith largely
comprises a range of contribu-
tions, from various perspectives,
by Caribbean thinkers and oth-
ers abroad who specialise in Car-
ibbean development.
S Altogether,-the latest
package by IRP, including Hi-
lary Beckles' 'Chattel House
Blues (Making of a Demo-
cratic Society in'BarbadoS)',.
should make quite a differ-
ence in helping to generate-
informed opinion and stimu-
late debate on Caribbean so---
ciety and culture, political and
economic development.






SUNlDAY CHRONICm E, une6; 2004 -.-. 7


A classic returns: lan McDonald's


THE Hummingbird 1
Tree was first pub-
lished as a novel in
1969 but at least one
excerpt has been pub-
lished in the literary
journal Kyk as early as
1957, two years after
the author came to
Guyana to work at
Booker's. I am un-
aware of its impact at
the time of publication
but it was sufficient
enough for the name to
be in circulation as I
was growing up during
the eighties and nine-
ties and for the BBC to
make a film out of it in
1992, which I saw, by
the way.
Macmillan has very
recently republished The Hum-
mingbird Tree and I recently got
my hands on a copy. The short
of it is that the book's reputa-
tion throughout the years has
been not without reason. It be-
longs on the same shelf with
such coming-of-age Caribbean
classics such as Miguel Street,
In the Castle of My Skin and,
to some extent, Another Life.
For the benefit of
those in my generation unfamil-
iar with The Hummingbird Tree
and for those in earlier ones
who may have forgotten it, the
book is the story of Alan
Holmes, a white Trinidadian
and his friendship with Kaiser
and.Jaillin, two. young Indian
servants at his parents' house.


'The Humming Bird Tree'


The novel traces the
growth, strengthening and sub-
sequent dissolution of that
friendship through the eyes a
point-of-view perhaps unique
among other books of this sub-
genre of a rich, upper-class white
West Indian boy, from his pu-
bescent years through to his early
adulthood.
When the novel begins,
Alan is 12 and out hunting for
butterflies with Kaiser, 14, the
yardboy. A contrast is quickly
drawn between the refinement
and naivete of the story's narra-
tor and crass world-weariness of
his new friend; a colonial prince
and pauper, if you may.
When the narrator tells
us, casually that "[t]he difference
between us was that I was white
and he was dark brown. That, I
suppose, was the major differ.-
ence...", the stage has been set
for what is going to be the major
theme in the novel, race; andjust
as is easily, with all the innocence
and naivete of youth, is it dis-
missed. For Alan, there were.
other, more .noteworthy differ-
ences between him and Kaiser.
And even more important is the
fact that when he is around
'Kaiser's sister, Jaillin, all this
fades away.
As we meander with the
three children among the Never
Never land of the forest, the pol-
ished drawing-room of Alan's
house, the village where Kaiser
and Jaillin live, his parents' beach
house and finally Carnival-in-
Sfected Tunapuna streets,

pestuous voyage of pubescent
love and friendship.


As Alan grows closer to
Kaiser and as he falls helplessly
in love with Jaillin, he is increas-
ingly torn between loyalty to his
race and class and what his heart
tells him to be right. For most of
the book, the language is simple,
prosaic; a rose is a rose sort of
thing. And this works well for
the purpose of the story for
though it is told from the per-
spective of an adult narrator, it
captures the essence of that time
of life, when the world is not


heavy with complications, with
the burden of custom, of preju-
dice, which will eventually over-
take Alan.
There are times though
when the poet that will eventu-
ally emerge in McDonald shows
itself strongly. Consider the fol-
lowing passage about Alan's re-
action to the chanting music of
Black fishermen:
"It rasped, it made you

Bush s s e s r T


ROME (Reuters) Presi-
dent George Bush, addressing
speculation that CIA director
George Tenet had been


pushed out of his post, said
yesterday he was sorry Te-
net resigned and that the
spy chief left for personal


reasons.
"George Tenet did a su-
perb job for America. It was a high
honour to work with him, and I'm
sorry he left," Bush said at a news
conference with Italian Prime
Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
"He chose to do so for
personal reasons," the U.S. presi-
dent said.
.Bush sought to put to
rest speculation that Tenet, who
presided over major intelligence
lapses relating to the September
11, 2001, suicide attacks on the
World Trade Center, may have
been forced out.
Bush said he had been
given assurances that the depar-
ture of Tenet, who hid served in
his job since 1997, would not hurt
morale at the CIA.
Bush's remarks in Rome
were his first public comments


into your stomach in some war.
But there was something that
'made me glad I heard it, an an-
cestral gladness which had a vi-
sion of crucifixions, an elephant
with a stake through its heart
on a grass hill in Africa, the dirt-
grey Ganges drowning a bony,
screaming man, flesh whipped
into patterns on the backs of a
thousand generations, pyra-
mids falling into ruin, sadness,
inescapable cruelty, the power
of time yet still maintained
the sense of joy that men loved
to be alive in the world. It was
music which had stopped but
(Please turn to page
eight)


about Tenet since he announced
the CIA director's resignation be-
fore boarding a plane to Italy on
Thursday.
Although Bush and his
advisers have said Tenet's depar-
ture was voluntary, the reshuf-
fling at the CIA could prove a
bonus for Bush during his three-
day trip to Italy and France:
Tenet had expressed
confidence to Bush that there
were weapons of mass destruc-
tion in Iraq, and the failure to
find those weapons has been an
embarrassment to Bush. In Eu-
rope the failure to find such
weapons.has stoked already
strong anti-war sentiment.
While Berlusconi has
been a staunch Bush ally on
Iraq, French President
Jacques Chirac has been one
of the most vocal opponents of
Washington's decision to in-
vade Iraq.

worth. There is evidence that
at least part of the book was
already written as early as
1957, because of the publica-
tion of an excerpt, taken from
the first chapter, in the 1957
edition of the literary journal
Kyk-over-al.
This is not a very long
novel, and when you consider
the 12-year gap between that
excerpt in Kyk and the publi-
cation of the entire novel, one,
thing comes to mind for this
reviewer. Was the novel's pub-
lication delayed because pub-
lishers might have seen it to be
politically incorrect to publish
a no-doubt semi-autobio-
graphical novel by a white
West Indian.? If this is so, the


socio-cultural zeitgeist, the eth-
nically charged spirit of the age,
though providing the cocoon for
one of our region's finer poets,
may well have robbed us of an
equally adept novelist.
And the truth is, for all
the personal humanism, sensi-
tivity, the reverent awe for na-
ture that we find in Ian
McDonald's poetry from that
time to now we have lost a
courageous novelist. It is easy
to be native, to be African, to be
Indian, to be oppressed when
all these things so many of
them valid, so many of them
postures are en vogue; but to
be the other, to be white, to be a
child, to make that spawn, of
the oppressor even if remorse-
fully when it is unwise to be,
takes guts.-
It may be easy to imag-
ine that that was then, this is
Snow, that we are in another de-
cade, century, millennium and
thus the old mindsets no longer
apply. But in the words of no
less a seer than Borges, "Des-'
tiny delights in repetition, vari-
ants, symmetries." In Guyana's,
and Trinidad's, current racially
charged atmosphere in this era
of so many new or renewed and
rabid vindications it may well
be that the message of Ian
McDonald's The Hummingbird
Tree will be lost [again] within
the clamour.
I pray that it is not.

Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) Inspectors (in background) pose with their certificates at the closing of the
Legal Metrology training course. Among those seated at head table are, second from left, GNBS Director Dr. Chatterpaul
Ramcharran, Facilitator, Mr. Tweedsmuir Mitchelle and GNBS Head of Information Services, Ms. Evadne Fields.


THE Guyana National Bu-
reau of Standards (GNBS) can
now operate at full capacity to
carry out test measurements
after its inspectors concluded
a three-week training


programme in Legal Metrol-
ogy.
The training was con-
ducted at the Bureau's head-
quarters Sophia, Georgetown.
The training was done in three
modules dealing with the legal
metrology impacting on mass/
weight, volume and length mea-
surements. It involved 14 par-
ticipants and was conducted by
Facilitator, Mr. Tweedsmuir
Mitchelle of the Jamaica Bu-
reau of Standards.
GNBS Director, Dr.
Chatterpaul Ramcharran, during
the closing session of the
programme Friday, said with


the training and the equipment
it has procured, the Bureau has
now acquired the capacity to
competently carry out calibra-
tion of masses, and verification
of the accuracy of all measure-
ments that would be used com-
mercially.
"We are in a position
to competently calibrate the
working standards, which are
used in the various regions coun-
trywide by weights and mea-
sures officers," Dr. Ramcharran
said.
The standards will also
allow for the monitoring of the
balls being used for Lottery


games.
Those persons
trained as inspectors are now in
a position to monitor larger ca-
pacity scales apart from those
that are being used in shops and
supermarkets, which may not
exceed 30 kilogrammes. The
Bureau can now test scales that
have a capacity as high as 3000
kg.
Such scales are
usually found at supermar-
kets to measure bulk com-
modities supplied by manu-
facturers, and are used at rice
mills, airport and aero-
dromes.

Bureau gets rice testing laboratory


Bureau gets rice testing laboratory


THE Guyana National Bureau
of Standards (GNBS) now has
a laboratory at its Sophia
headquarters where testing
and grading rice can be done
before the product is ready for
export on the international
market.
GNBS Director, Dr.


Chatterpaul Ramcharran, at the
opening of the facility on Fri-
day said that on a monthly ba-
sis, the Bureau certifies some 3.5
to 4.0 thousand metric tons of
rice using the laboratory to grade
consignments that are shipped
to Jamaica. This quantity is pro-
duced by eight millers altogether,


he noted.
Dr. Ramcharran said
the Bureau is now moving in the
direction, not only to deal with
the percentage of broken rice
grains, but also extend its ser-
vices to include other param-
eters, such as grading immature
grains, red grains, and damaged


grains.
Additionally, the new
facility will also serve as a refer-
ence laboratory in the event of
disputes between farmers, or
between millErs.
The opening of the
laboratory comes at a time when
there are problems with grading


of paddy in the rice industry. Dr.
Ramcharran noted that many
farmers have expressed dissatis-
faction with the grading process
of paddy after taking their sup-
ply to the millers. In such cases,
the Bureau will be the agent that
will do the final verification.
The laboratory also
has the capacity to carry out the
calibration of moisture meters
used in the rice industry. Verify-
ing the moisture content of paddy
is one of the main concerns farm-


ers have raised, Dr. Ramcharran
noted. Farmers believe that mill-
ers are not carrying out the mois-
ture content test of their paddy
accurately and this causes them
to be at a disadvantage.
The Bureau will be-
gin calibrating moisture
metres within the next two
weeks and rice millers
throughout the country could
submit their moisture content
metres to the bureau to verify
accuracy.


The public is hereby notified that the property known as
Lot 12 Blygezeight Gardens, Georgetown,
purported to be owned by National Bank of Industry and
Commerce (N.B.I.C) and/or Shridath Patandin and being
offered for sale by N:B.I.C. is the subject of an action
No. 158-W of 2003 before the High Court of the Supreme Court
of Judicature on the ground that the Bank's purported acquisition
of the said property was fraudulent and unlawful.

Persons desirous of purchasing the said property are
hereby advised that they do so at their own risk of losing their
investment, which may result from the High Court's decision.

In her presentation at

Rhonda Lee, who is coordinator
of the centre, said ecologists feel
educating persons on the envi-
ronment is relevant to conserva-
tion.
"Environmentalists
strongly believe the first step in
the solution of the many envi-

present generation is to address
the thinking and attitudes of in-
dividuals towards the environ-
ment. This can be accomplished
through environmental educa-
tion. Environmental education is

Wol pays tribut

to1 Ronald ReaganmT


WASHINGTON (Reuters) -
Political leaders and other
prominent figures paid
tribute yesterday to former
President Ronald Reagan,
who died at his Los Angeles
home at the age of 93.
According to President
George W. Bush it's a "sad day
for America. A great American
life has come to an end. He
leaves behind a nation he
restored, and a world he helped
save."
Former President Bill
Clinton and Senator Hillary
Rodham Clinton, called Reagan
"a true American original."
"Hillary and I will always
remember President Ronald
Reagan for the way he
personified the indomitable -
optimism of the American
people, and for keeping America
at the forefront of the fight for
freedom for people everywhere.
"President Reagan
demonstrated his strength-
and resolve after leaving
office when he shared his
struggle with Alzheimer's
disease with the world."
For Senate Majority
leader, Bill First, Reagan's
bold leadership in difficult
times provided Americans
with tremendous strength and
inspiration. Above all, he
was a true patriot, whose
endless optimism inspired
America's continued ascent
to greatness. Undoubtedly,
Ronald Reagan has left an
indelible mark on our country
and our global community."
Senate Minority Leader
Tom Daschle said America has
lost an icon.


"Ronald Reagan's
leadership will inspire
Americans for generations to
come. His patriotism and
devotion to our country will
never be forgotten."
In Britain, both Queen
Elizabeth and former British
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher reacted to Reagan's
death.
"President Reagan was one
of my closest political and
dearest personal friends,"
Thatcher said.
"He will be missed not only
by those who knew him and not
only by the nation that he
served so proudly and loved so
deeply, but also by millions of
men and women who live in
freedom today because of the
policies he pursued.
"Ronald Reagan had a
higher claim than any other
leader to have won the Cold
War for liberty and he did it
without a shot being fired,"
she added.
"The Queen is saddened by
the news," said a Buckingham
Palace spokeswoman.
And French President
Jacques Chirac said Reagan was
a "great statesman who through
the strength of his convictions
and his commitment to
democracy will leave a deep
mark in history."
Democratic Presidential
candidate John Kerry noted that
Reagan's love of country was
infectious.
"Even when he was
breaking Democrats hearts,
he did so with a smile and in
the spirit of honest and open
debate," Kerry said.


President Jagdeo, PM



Manning seek creation

(From page 3)
in another two weeks, one
will be held in Canada.
DaSilva also spoke of the
function of Go-Invest, which
has responsibility for liaising
and promoting business
between all public and private
agencies on behalf of
investors.
According to him, there
are investment opportunities
in the agro-processing, wood,
mining, information
technology, eco-tourism and
furniture sectors, and as such
he is looking forward to the
establishment of additional
agencies from both the
Trinidad and Tobago and
Guyanese private sectors.
Chairman of the event
was Guyana's Honorary
Consul to Trinidad and
Tobago, Mr. Ernie Ross, who,
in welcome remarks, said he
found it quite remarkable yet
regrettable that many of the
guests present had never
visited Guyana, much less
explored the country's
picturesque hinterland which
is home to many of the
country's exotic resorts.
Seemingly at a loss for
words, Ross said of Guyana:

"Like love, you can't describe
it sufficiently; it is best
understood when you encounter
the experience." He also
stressed the point that it was
fast becoming "the gateway to
South America".
Following the
formalities, President Jagdeo
and Prime Minister
Manning briefly toured the
exhibition area, taking in the
eye-catching rainforest
setting created by
Trinidadian designer, Brian
Mac Farlane.
Using photographs taken
while he was in Guyana on a
fact-finding mission some three
weeks ago, the artist was able
to transform a section of the
hotel's ground floor to effect a
rainforest setting, replete with
waterfalls and the sounds of the
forest.
MacFarlane told the
Chronicle Friday that he was
"seeking to capture the natural


flora and fauna of Guyana for
the benefit of his countrymen
and women." While in Guyana,
he paid brief visits to some of
its rivers and Amerindian
settlements.
Guests were also treated to
a rich display of Guyanese
fashion from designers Sonia
Noel, Andrea Braithwaite, Myra
Patterson and Natalie Ward.
A rich blend of Pantar
music, which is a fusion of the
pan and the sitar, spiced up the
evening.
At the commencement of
the proceeding, Trinidadian
Wendy Sheppard did an
excellent job rendering the
national anthems of both
countries.
In an invited comment to
the Sunday Chronicle shortly
after viewing the exhibition in
the company of President
Jagdeo and DaSilva, Prime
Minister Manning remarked:
"The range of products I see


here is greater than I ever
anticipated. I believe I know
the Caribbean quite well but
there're lots of new things
that I have learnt in terms of
Guyana's capability and the
exports that Guyana has
available".
Earlier the Trinidad and
Tobago PM, in a brief remark at
a reception/official opening of
the exposition at the hotel's
poolside noted that there are
lots of opportunities for trade
between Guyana and Trinidad
and Tobago.
He sees such an
exposition as an essential and
basic element of a proper
integration system. He
expressed the hope that at
the conclusion of the
exposition, members of the
business community of both
countries are able to enter
into arrangements that can be
of mutual benefits to both
sides.

THE biggest crowd so far at
the Guyana Consulate's
annual picnic held over the

themselves with traditional
Guyanese and Bajan foods
and an equally interesting
mix of cultural

Despite the heavy overcast

About the Bajan

MOSCOW (Reuters) A
Russian regional government
has told its women employ-
ees to stop wearing short
skirts and tone down their
make-up because they were
arousing their male col-
leagues' "animal instincts".
The ruling by Oleg
Shlyk, deputy governor of
Kaliningrad on Russia's Baltic
coast, has stirred indignation
among many in the enclave in-
cluding its menfolk.
"Of course, a woman
must attract a man's attention,
but not so much as to overstep
norms and arouse not business-


like but only animal instincts,"
Shlyk told the NTV television
network.
An NTV commen-
tator said Shlyk's ruling meant
that women in Kaliningrad ad-
ministration headquarters
would have to forsake short
skirts in favour of business-
suits, shun outlandish
jewellery and wear only mod-
est make-up.
Yuri Matochkin, a

ment, indignantly said the rul-
ing brought shame on Shlyk
himself.
"If this distracts


him, then he has chosen the
wrong job and if he cannot
control himself to direct his
energy correctly he ought to
change his job," Matochkin
said.
Vladimir Nikitin, a
senior parliament official,
agreed.
"Deputies of our
duma (parliament) and
members of staff have not
given any reason to double
their high moral level and
reliability, as far as their
dress- code goes at least,'
Nikitin said

(From page four)
gravest crisis with the dis-
closure in November 1986 that
the United States had sold arms
to Iran in 1985-86 and diverted
proceeds to U.S.-backed Contra
guerrillas in Nicaragua.
Reagan declared him-
self guilty of nothing but poor
judgment, and Congressional
hearings in 1987 backed him on
one central point: witnesses


said he was never told about
the Contra funds.
He left office two
weeks shy of his 78th birth-
day, by far the oldest presi-
dent the United States had
ever had and more popular
than any predecessor in his-
tory.
It was typical of the
amazing physical resilience he
had shown in office, surviving
a 1981 assassination attempt
that put a bullet near his heart,
a 1985 colon cancer operation


and 1987 prostate and skin-
cancer surgery.
When diagnosed with
Alzheimer's in 1994, Reagan
disclosed it in a 'My fellow
Americans' letter.
"When the Lord
calls me home ... I will leave
with the greatest love for
this country of ours and eter-
nal optimism for its fu-
ture," he wrote on Novem-
ber 5, 1994. "I know that for
America there will always
be a bright dawn ahead."

By Pascal Fletcher

CARACAS, Venezuela
(Reuters) Tens of thou-
sands of opponents of Ven-
ezuelan President Hugo
Chavez marched yesterday
to demand that a referen-
dum against him be held be-
fore August 19 so that a vic-
tory could conclusively oust
the leader and his entire


government.
Chanting anti-Chavez
slogans, blowing whistles and
waving yellow, blue and red na-
tional flags, the demonstrators
rallied in Caracas to celebrate
this week's triggering of a recall
vote on the rule of the left-wing
president.
The march was called
to hail Thursday's decision by
electoral authorities to call a ref-


drendum this year after the op-
position collected enough pro-
vote signatures.
S But a poll date still
has to be set, and when it is
held is critically important.
Under the constitution,
if the referendum is held after
August 19 and Chavez loses,
his vice president a loyal sup-
porter will take over until elec-
tions in December 2006.


TEACHING SERVICE COMMISSION


The Teaching Service Commission (TSC) has begun the normal
annual exercise of making promotions in Nursery, Primary and
Secondary schools, Practical Instruction Centres and Post
Secondary Institutions.

Proposals in respect of promotions will be posted on the Notice
Boards at the Teaching Service Commission and at the Education
Departments in the Regions as they become available.

Requests for a review of any decision must be received at the
Teaching Service Commission not later than fourteen (14) days
after the date on which such promotion notice is posted on the TSC
Notice Boards. Having regard to the basket of features agreed
between the Ministry of Education and the Guyana Teachers' Union
and used by the TSC to determine each promotion, each request
for a review of a promotion decision must include detailed reasons'
why such decisions should be disturbed.

.,... But if Chavez is re-
called beforee August 19, new
election will be held within 30.
days. The constitution is not
clear Obi whether Chavez can
immediately run again in the bal-
lot. This would be decided by
the Supreme Court.
"We say to the Na
tional Electoral Council, ... the
referendum should be August 8,"
Juan FAtnandez, a member of the
opposition Democratic Coordi-
nator coalition, told the rally.
The electoral body was
expeofed to set the poll date
Monday. Opposition leaders are
insisting the council adopt the:
August 8 date it had previously
proposed, although some elec-
toral officials are. also suggest-
ing August 15.
Braving rain showers,
the marchers chanted "He
(Chavez) is going, he's going."
": :.. "The referendum is a
fact. ... The government will try
to play tricks, but we'll carry
on fighting to the end," house-
wife Evelyn Gonzalez said as
she took pan in the march, her
face painted in the national
colours.
SMost opinion polls
have own Chavez would lose
a refendum, but he insists he
m intins the support of the
county s poor majority.
:i- To win, his opponents
mustitch or beat the 3.76 mil-
lionu es he received in the
200Q0"tion.

BRASILIA, Brazil (Reuters) -
Brazil on Thursday defended
its efforts to fight destruction
of the Amazon rain-forest de-
spite delays in creating re-
serves to protect the world's
largest jungle.
The nation's centre-left
government has promised to
create 33 million acres of envi-
ronmental reserves in 2004, af-
ter Amazon destruction last
year reached its second-highest
level. But so far, the government
has met only a small fraction of
its goal.
Speaking at an event to
mark this week's international
environment day, Brazilian en-
vironment minister Marina Silva
said she wasn't worried. She
saw big reserves on the horizon
and said it took time to build ar-
eas that could protect the rain
forest as well as people's liveli-
hoods.
"It's all about uniting
the environment, development
and social justice," Silva, a
former maid who comes from
the Amazon, told Reuters after
unveiling plans for new re-
serves.
In 2003, 5.9 million
acres of Amazon jungle, bigger
than the U.S. state nf New Jer-
sey, were destroyed as ranchers
and farmers advanced on the
tropical jungle. The Amazon en-
compasses an area just under
half the size of the continental
United States.
Brazilian President
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has
faced criticisms from environ-
mentalists that he is more inter-
ested in building roads and dams
through the Amazon than slow-
ing its destruction.
The former metal-
worker says he wants to pro-
tect the environment, through
controlled use of natural reserves
that can create jobs.
Some environmental-
ists complain his government
has yet to create Amazon re-
serves that provide total envi-




(From page four)
waste such as supermarket
bags kills one million sea birds,
100,000 sea mammals and
countless fish.
Some 3.5 billion
people, more.than half the
world's six billion population,
rely on seas for their main
source of food.
"I love the turtles,"
said Nimit Jain, one of the chil-
dren on the beach in Barcelona.
"We're realising we're only
part of the ecosystem. We are
the ones wasting it. This is our
chance to change."
On the other side of
the world, volunteers cleaned
up trash washed up on
Australia's Macquarie Island
near Antarctica.
Others focused on
wider themes for June 5, the
date a first global summit on the
environment was held in
Stockholm in 1972. In nations
including Sri Lanka and Ghana,
activists planted trees to help
slow deforestation.
In Oslo, a youth group
protested against drilling for oil
in the Arctic and urged a shift
to renewable energies like solar


ronmental protection. Others
say government agencies lack
resources to run existing re-
serves and the answer is not to-
tal protection but sustainable
use.
"What's the point of
creating new areas when you
can't protect what you've 1l-
ready got," said David Cleary
of the Nature Conservancy in
Brazil.
Despite Marina Silva's
promise to create 33 million
acres of protected areas across
Brazil in 2004, the government
has so far set aside just 1.58 mil-
lion acres most of that with
Thursday's announcement of
two new Atlantic rain forest re-
serves.
"The plan is very good
but we've got to see it carried
out, we've got to see the re-
serves created...we want action,"
said Rosa Lemos de Sa of con-
servation group WWF, which
on Thursday donated $500,000
toward a programme to protect
Amazon areas.
Environmentalists fear
deforestation of the Amazon
because it is the world's biggest
reservoir of fresh water, home
to up to 30 per cent of the
world's plant and animal spe-
cies, and a source of medicines.
Around 15 per cent of
the jungle has been destroyed so
far. Brazil's Atlantic rain forest
- once a third the size of the
Amazon has been cut to seven
per cent of its original size.
Brazil's environment
ministry says it will take
months of consultations with
local people and governments to
establish reserves to allow sus-
tainable use of rain forest. They
point out some past reserves
failed to ensure communities
could still earn a living and that
protections could be enforced.
"It takes time to do it
right, there will be many
more in coming weeks," Joao
Paulo Capobianco, the
ministry's secretary of
biodiversity and forests, told
Reuters.



or wind power with banners
saying: 'Stop Climate Change.'
"If the war on environ-
mental degradation is to be won,
we need a major turnaround,"
World Bank President James
Wolfensohn wrote in an edito-
rial, saying progress was
"alarmingly slow."
He said that aid to help
developing nations protect the
environment totaled $2.0 billion
a year compared with global
military spending of $900 bil-
lion.
Toepfer said: "Peace is
the most important pre-condi-
tion for sustainability...poverty
is the one of the most toxic ele-
ments in the world."
Even the British
Atomic Weapons Establishment
(AWE) which maintains the
nation's nuclear arsenal staged
an exhibition yesterday to edu-
cate staff on ways of protect-
ing the environment at work and
at home.
"Like any other large
industrial complex, we are
aware that our operations can
have the potential to harm
the environment," the AWE
said in a statement

(From page 30)

early years, the two friends say
they have played each other
on countless occasions.
For the early part of this
final, it did look as though
the pair were going through
the motions, training rather
than competing as they both
struggled to adapt to the
unfamiliar surroundings of a
grand slam title match.
Dementieva 'knows
herself only too well and
having won the toss, elected
to receive. It paid immediate
dividends as she broke
Myskina for a 1-0 lead but
she was unable to hold her
own serve, hitting three
double faults straight off to
hand the advantage back to
her opponent.
In total, Dementieva hit
15 double faults almost
four games' worth.
Myskina's game plan,
drawn up over the -last 15
years of playing hei friend,
appeared simple. Make the
ninth seed play the ball and
wait for the nerves to-kick in.


SIMPLEPLAN
It was a simple plan, but
did the trick.
Dementieva tried to be
aggressive, tried to take the
initiative on many occasions but
too often she tightened, either
sending the ball into the net or
shovelling it deep over the
baseline.
Myskina herself was not
entirely immune to nerves.
However, she managed to
control herself at key moments,
preferring the simple, rolled
crosscourt shot rather than the
high-risk efforts Dementieva
seemed bent on.
The WTA's statistics had
the pair tied at 4-4 in head-to-
head matches but it is a difficult
statistic to believe on the
evidence of this match.
Everything Dementieva
tried failed. The shots she had
used to great effect in beating
Mauresmo now landed limply
in the net.
Leading 5-1 Myskina drilled
a backhand down the line which
Dementieva had no chance of
reaching to seal the set in 27
minutes.
Dementieva's serve, a
frailty at the best of times,
deserted her completely as the
pressure mounted and the match
was all but over.
She managed two games in
the second set but never looked
like mounting a serious
challenge.
Myskina was well into her
stride and.nj6ying the big stage.
.Sle clinched victory when
Dementieva fired yet another
grouridstroke long over the
baseline.
The champion simply
shrugged' and smiled to
Gerlach in the stands before
hugging her vanquished
friend at the net. "

Fraser, Thomas, Rodrigues,



Seepersaud take titles


SAMUEL Fraser, Ambrose
Thomas, Ricky Rodrigues
and Steven Seepersaud
claimed the first set of titles
as action in the National
Sports Commission's (NSC)
annual Independence table

boys Under- 9 title, while Tho-
mas won the girls Under-11
title, Rodrigues the boys Under-
11 crown and Seepersaud the
boys Under-13 title.
The girls division was
played on a round robin basis
among four females with Tho-
mas getting the better of the op-
ponents.
Britnee Persaud finished
second, while Mika Melville
ended third and Jessica Persaud
finished fourth in the division.
Ricky Rodrigues in the Un-


der-11 final disposed of Stalin
Kanhai 11-4, 11-3, 11-7 while
Gerard Gerrick beat Clarence
Edwards for the third place
spot.
In the semi-finals Rodrigues

Seeperasud had gotten past

while Gomes disposed of
Kamaudeen in the other. Play
continues daily at the same
venue and concludes on June
10.
The tournament got under-
way after a formal opening cer-
emony at the same venue with
Chairman of the NSC Laurie


Lewis giving the feature ad-
dress..
Lewis in his brief remarks
urged the players to be disci-
plined both on and off the table,
while noting that he was pleased


with the work of Chinese Coach,
Zhou Ping.
He however noted that he
would not be totally satisfied
until the locals are coaching
other people.


Jones ruled out of series
ENGLAND paceman Simon Jones is to miss the rest of the
Test series against New Zealand with an injured left foot.
Jones suffered a stress fracture six years ago and England and
Wales Cricket Board medical officer Peter Gregory feared there
could be a repeat.
"As a preventative measure, Simon will be rested
from the next two Test matches," Gregory said in a
statement.
"And his return to cricket will be dependant on the time it
takes for his symptoms to heal."
Gregory added: "We are optimistic. however, that with rest
and treatment he will be fit for the power Test scenes against
West Indies later this summer"
Kent seamer Martin Saggers took Jones' place for the
second Test at Headingley.

NEW YORK (Reuters) The
National Basketball
Association (NBA), is letting
its advertisers get a bigger
piece of the action ahead of
its Finals games between the.
Los Angeles Lakers and the
Detroit Pistons starting this
weekend.
NBA officials said the
league helped its marketing
partners, from Coca-Cola Co.'s
Sprite to Southwest Airlines to
create more intimate tie-ins for
their campaigns under a single
theme "Destination Finals"
- ahead of the series which
starts today.
The benefit is mutual. In

scientific research into the

will pave the way for his
controversial doosra delivery
being declared legal.
The International Cricket
Council (ICC) have barred the
doosra, which spins in the
opposite direction to-the world
record wicket taker's stock off
break, after tests carried out at
the University of Western
Australia showed that it did not
conform to current guidelines.
"I am adamant in my belief

"It's my favourite time of

Muralitharan's doosra was
reported as suspect by match
referee Chris Broad during. Sri
Lanka's series against Australia
in March.
Subsequent tests using high-
speed cameras to generate a
computer simulation that
estimated the level of elbow-
straightening showed
Muralitharan's arm flexed by 14
degrees.
The straightening was
reduced to 10.2 degrees after
remedial action but that was still
double the five-degree level of
bending currently tolerated by
the ICC.
Muralitharan was on
Friday named in a 16-man
squad to tour Australia this
month. He had threatened to
withdraw when Australian
Prime Minister John
Howard questioned his
action.
"The period since Chris
Broad's report has been a most
traumatic time for me," said
Muralitharan.
"I have been defamed,
pilloried and severely criticised
by the world's cricket media.
"Even the prime minister of
Australia, John Howard, has
called me a chucker."
"My action is
unorthodox," he said. "It is,
however, wrong for people to
label me as a chuckerr" based
solely on what they see with
the naked eye.
"What such people perceive
as a 'throw' is an 'optical

looking for a younger

Jonathan Press, NBA vice
president of marketing
partnerships, said investments
in the NBA marketing
programme have increased, with
20 out of 22 marketing partners
participating in this year's
theme.
"As long as everyone is
telling the same story, you're
able to piggyback on everyone
else's campaign," he said.
And even before this


year's winners have been
declared on the court,
advertisers are in talks for
next season's ad program, he
said.
The next campaign is
expected to include a stronger
international theme as the NBA
draws more foreign viewers with
players like China's Yao Ming.
For the current season,
toymaker Lego built a replica of
the NBA trophy with its
interlocking blocks while cellular
phone maker Nokia will replay
highlights from the finals games
over its phones.
Recent Sprite commercials
featured hot-shot Cleveland
guard LeBron James, while
American Express created
humorous spots with Jason
Kidd and Tim Duncan.
John Carroll, group director
for the Sprite brand, said the
Miles Thirst campaign had been
tied to the NBA since its launch
in February to benefit from the
association's popularity with its
target consumer group teens
and young men.
"This is one of the
strongest ad campaigns we
have had in five or six years
for Sprite," Carroll said. "It
just makes a bigger splash."


Roopnarine makes


impressive


debut in Canada


From Frederick Halley in
Toronto

SEVERAL Guyanese cricket-
ers were in the limelight over
the past two weekends as the
Toronto & District Cricket
Association (T&DCA) 2004
season got under way.
Highlighting the perfor-
mances was a match-winning
impressive debut from former
Guyana youth player Naresh
Roopnarine who grabbed five
for 17 as Vikings demolished
West Indians by seven wickets
in a Premiere Division game,
played at King City.
Taking first strike, West In-
dians had no answer to the left-
arm swing of Roopnarine as
they were routed for 90 in 28.3
overs in the 50-over affair.
Vikings hit off the required
total in 31.2 overs with opener
Chris Vernon unbeaten on 43
former Canadian batsman Paul
Prashad 31 not out.
The Guyana Sugar Corpora-
tion (GUYSUCO) 200? Male
Sports Personality, who repre-
sented the Guyana senior side in a
lone encounter against India "A" at
the Georgetown Cricket Club
(GCC) ground, Bourda in the
2003 Carib Beer four-day
tournament, recently migrated
to Canada.


Former Guyana and Cana-
dian opening batsman Faizal
"Terminator" Sattaur was also
in the news, slamming 59 to
help B4U defeat Kaieteur by 50
runs in their match, played at
the Ellesmere ground.
Sattaur's breezy half-cen-
tury helped B4U reached 147 all
out with Ravi Bhim taking five
for 12.
Kaieteur however found the
going tough and were skittled
out for 97 with Z. Patel claim-
ing four for eight.
In another match, played at
the Ashtonbee ground, former
national youth player Rovindra
Mandolall blasted five sixes in
one over on his way to a quick-
fire 50 as VP/Reliance A raced
to 97 for one and victory over
Demerara/South. The latter were
dismissed for 93.
Meanwhile, national middle-
order batsman and useful me-
dium pace bowler Damodar
Daesrath is expected to make
his debut for Tranzac when the
Premiere Division continues this
weekend.
Daesrath, who played for
Guyana in this year's Carib
Beer four-day tournament,
was expected to arrive in
Canada during last week for
his first taste of cricket in
this North American country.


Fallon and Stoute in Epsom Derby double


By Justin Palmer

EPSOM, England,
(Reuters) North Light,
the- 7-2 joint favourite,
galloped his rivals into
submission in the Epsom
Derby yesterday to give
jockey Kieren Fallon and
trainer Michael Stoute
back-to-back victories in
the famous English classic.
Six-times champion Fallon
utilised the colt's speed and
stamina to hold off Godolphin's
Rule of Law (20-1) by one and
a half lengths.
Third place in the 14-strong
field went to Let the Lion Roar
(14-1), with joint-favourite,
Snow Ridge, bidding to give
former champion Frankie
Dettori his first Derby victory
in 12 attempts, finishing
seventh.
It was a remarkable classic
double for the jockey and trainer
who won the Derby a year ago
on Kris Kin. It was also a
second classic victory in the


space of 24 hours for Fallon
who captured the Epsom Oaks
on Friday on Ouija Board.
"He was a horse I liked
from his very first race," said
Irishman Fallon, savouring his
third Derby triumph following
Oath (1999) and Kris Kin.
"He has a fantastic
temperament, he carries himself
so well and has done nothing
but improve."
Stoute, winning his fourth
Derby 23 years after his first
with the ill-fated Shergar, was
thrilled with North Light who
was having only the fourth race
of his life.
"He's a lovely horse and
lovely to train in every way,
mentally and physically, he is
just a fine athlete," the
Barbados-born trainer said.

IMPRESSIVE WINNER
Expectations of a bold
showing had been high ever
since North Light ran out an
impressive winner of a pre-
Derby trial, the Dante Stakes at


York, last month.
Fallon had his charge in
the front rank right from the
off and the colt looked
immediately at ease over
Epsom's undulating course,
which can often unbalance a
horse.
Happy to track Meath in
the early stages, Fallon pushed
North Light, carrying the
colours of the late Lord
Weinstock a Derby winner
with Troy in 1979 into the lead
rounding the turn from home
and poached a lead that proved
decisive.
French raider American Post
briefly threatened to challenge,
but it was Godolphin's second
string Rule of Law, ridden by
Australian Kerrin McEvoy, who
chased the winner home. A fast
finishing Let the Lion Roar
grabbed third.
Remarkably, the first three


horses home had finished in the
same position in the Dante
Stakes.
The big-race
disappointment proved to be
English 2,000 Guineas runner-
up Snow Ridge, who trailed in
seventh.
His stamina was always
going to be questionable and a
dejected Dettori confirmed that
when he said: "He just didn't
stay."
He added: "I am
disappointed and now have to
wait another 12 months until
my next attempt. You cannot
win them all."
Fallon is on the crest of a,
wave but has still to face a
Jockey Club disciplinary,
hearing over allegations
made in a Sunday newspaper!
in March. He has described'
any claims of race-fixing as
"completely ridiculous."

PARIS, (Reuters) Vanquished
Elena Dementieva was left in
floods of tears after losing
yesterday's French Open final
to Anastasia Myskina. The
champion, however, did all her
crying before the match. -
Both gripped by nerves
ahead of the first all-Russian
final of a grand slam
tournament, Myskina explained
that she could not contain the
emotion while waiting in her
locker room to face her old
friend and compatriot.
"I was crying before the
match in the locker room," the
22-year-old Muscovite smiled
after beating Dementieva 6-1 6-
2 to become Russia's first
women's grand slam champion.
"Yeah, I was really crying.
About what, I really, don't
know.
"When you hold your
emotions during the two weeks,
you know, hard matches, I won
from match point (down)
against (Svetlana) Kuznetsova
(in the fourth round). It all just
came out before the match.
"It's good that and not
during the match," she grinned.
Dementieva admitted
after the final that she had
struggled with her breathing
on court after being gripped
by nerves.
Myskina said her
physiotherapist had helped her
overcome similar problems.
"The physio really helped
me," she said. "Just explain
what I should do on the court,
how I have to breathe, because
it's really... it was really
emotional before.
"You know, it's really hard
to hold emotions. But if you can


control yourself, if you are able
to do it, it's much, much easier
to play these important
matches.
"And I was able to control
myself today. Just, you know,
I can't really explain how... it
just happened."

BEING UPSET
The player who has become
notorious for screaming and
yelling at former boyfriend and
coach Jens Gerlach during
matches was a picture of inner
peace on Saturday and says this
is something she has been
working on.
"I have been working on
myself," she said. "I know that
it doesn't help if you yell at
somebody. I mean, first of all I
was yelling at myself more than
anybody.
"You know, it's hard work.
And my coach has helped me a
lot on that part. Finally, I have
become more professional on
the court."
As elated as she was at
winning her first grand slam
title, Dementieva's tears at the
end were hard for Myskina to
stomach.
"It's hard. WThen you are on
the court, you don't really think
about who you.are playing
against, you just think how to
* win.
"But after the match, it's
hard to see your friend crying
or your friend being upset.
"Especially in that match, it
was a really important match
for both of us."
"For me it is a dream. It's
a lot of emotions, it's a lot of
things going on right now.
You know, it's really hard to
explain what I'm feeling, but
I'm still shaking off.

HAMMERED by South
Africa, thrashed at home by
England and now struggling
to subdue Bangladesh these
are not happy times for West
Indies captain Brian Lara.
As a batsman, he is already
one of the immortals, with 9,
710 Test runs to his credit at an
average of well over 50 including
a record score of 400 not out.











But as a captain Lara has
not been one of the greats.
His record is modest with
just three wins from 17 Tests
since he began his second spell
in charge in 2003.
After their humbling
experiences against South
Africa and England, West
Indies were expected to
regain some confidence by
blowing away Test whipping
boys Bangladesh.
But the Tigers stunned
everyone by claiming a moral
victory as they drew the first
Test, thereby increasing the
pressure on Lara.
Bangladesh topped the 400-
mark for only the second time
in their history, claimed a first-
innings lead for the first time
and then achieved another first
when they were able to declare
in their second innings in St
Lucia.

England



with 132


LONDON, (Reuters) -
Opener Marcus Trescothick
hit a confident century as
England reached 248 for four
in reply to New Zealand's 409
at stumps on the third day of
the second Test yesterday at
Headingley.
Graham Thorpe was on
seven and Andrew Flintoff was
four when bad light stopped
play at the Leeds venue, where
the pitch was beginning to
deteriorate.
Trescothick reached his
highest score against New
Zealand despite a series of risky
attacking shots but was finally
undone for 132 by a skidding
delivery from Scott Styris that
he bottom edged onto the
stumps.
Michael Vaughan, batting at
four for the first time as captain,
edged a good length ball from
Styris to Stephen Fleming at
slip for 13, giving Styris figures
of two for 16 from seven overs.
The England skipper, who
left t:ie ground during play on
Friday to attend the birth of his
daughter, looked uncomfortable
down the order after moving
down to fill the spot left by the
retirement of Nasser Hussain.
Andrew Strauss continued
his good form from his debut at
Lord's where he scored 112 and
83, making 62 in an opening


stand of 153 with Trescothick
before he top-edged spinner
Daniel Vettori to Daryl Tuffey
at mid-wicket.
S Vettori's guile was again
rewarded soon after tea when
Mark Butcher was adjudged
lbw for four, playing back to an
off break. Vettori returned
figures of two for 60 from his
17 overs.
England quick bowlers
Matthew Hoggard and Steve
Harmison earlier cleaned up the
New Zealand tail, the last three
wickets falling without a run
being added.
Brendon McCullum
followed up his 96 in the first
test at Lord's with a fluid 54
before he was bowled by
Hoggard.
The Yorkshire swing bowler
'then trapped Tuffey lbw for
nought and the innings ended
when Vettori was bowled by
Harmison for 35, looking for a
big shot after a neat innings
peppered with deft cuts.
Harmison, who ended with
four for 74, also dismissed Chris
Cairns early in the day after the
touring side resumed on 351 for
six.
The all rounder, playing
in his penultimate Test,
lobbed a simple catch to
Strauss at point without
adding to his overnight 41.

RAVENS first reached the
quarterfinals of the
Invitational basketball
tournament, crushing New
Amsterdam, 84-53, Friday
night, at the Cliff Anderson
Sports Hall.
It was Ravens second
comfortable win, their second
victory in as many games after
inflicting an 82-59 trashing on
the Scorpions in their first game
a week ago at the same venue.
Ravens led 38-26 at half time in
the feature game.
Ravens now leads group 'C'
with six points while New
Amsterdam and the Scorpions
will battle for the second spot
in the group and a place in the
quarterfinal round tomorrow.
Former National captain
Lugard Mohan had 17 points,
15 rebounds, one blocked shot,
two assists and one steal, while
Rudy James also had 17 points,
13 rebounds, two steals and one
assist and Darcel Harris 15
points, five rebounds, four
assists and five steals for
Ravens.
For New Amsterdam,
Jermaine King netted 17 points,
pulled down six rebounds and
had three steals and Carlon
Crandon 12 points, nine
rebounds, three steals and one
assist.
In the first game in Group
B, the hot favourites to
advance, Courts Pacesettirs,
beat Under-19 champions
Plaisance Clippers 83-59.
Pacesetters, the senior and
more experienced team,
established a 41-28 point lead at
half time, extending it to 83-59
at the end of regulation time.
Mark Richards had 13
points, seven rebounds and one
steal, while Earl Nedd and
Colwyn Andrews both had ten
points for the Pacesetters, while
Paul Hyles netted 22 points,
pulled down ten rebounds and
four steals for the Clippers.
Clippers were a last minute
replacement for the Pepsi
Sonics who could not get their


act together in time for the
encounter.
Tournament coordinator
Vijay Panday told Chronicle
Sport that the Sonics initially
had asked for an extension of
time on-the opening night
because the team was not duly
prepared, which was granted.
However, Sonics were
scheduled to play on Friday and
again they asked Panday for yet
another extension, which he
refused to grant, thus Clippers
were drafted in at the last
minute.
Panday commended the
juniors for their commitment to
the game.
The Pacesetters were due to
play last evening against the
Wismar Pistons who also were
brought in as replacements for
the Hopetown Launchers of
West Coast Berbice, while
Plaisance Patriots were to play
Devastators.
Tonight play begins at
19:00 hrs with the Cyber City
Rangers meeting the Nets,
while Scorpions come up
against New Amsterdam in
the feature game.,


Anastasia Myskina of Russia holds up the trophy after
winning the women's final against her compatriot Elena
Dementieva at the French Open tennis tournament at
Roland Garros stadium in Paris, yesterday. Myskina won
the final 6-1 6-2. (,ack Dabaghian/Reuters)


By Ossian Shine

PARIS, (Reuters) Named
after a Russian royal,
Anastasia Myskina took her
place on the throne of
claycourt tennis yesterday,
thrashing Elena Dementieva
in an. al-Russian French
Open final.
The dark-haired Muscovite,
often tempestuous, at times
brilliant, controlled this one-
sided title match from the
moment the old friends stepped
on court, winning 6-1 6-2 to
become the first Russian woman
to win a grand slam singles title.
The Russian national
anthem echoed around the
Roland Garros stadium but it


was a coronation lacking fanfare
as sixth seed Myskina won by
the biggest margin since Steffi
Graf beat Belarussian Natasha
Zvereva 6-0 6-0 in 1988.
"I can't believe it," the 22-
year-old said as she collected
her trophy and cheque for
838,500 euros.
"I'm really very happy.
But it was hard to control my
emotions in a grand slam final
against a player who is also a
friend."
Dementieva found it harder.
"I think I was just too
nervous today," she admitted.
"I have wanted this all my life
but I couldn't handle the
pressure... I couldn't play my
game," she added with tears in

PARIS, (Reuters) Argentine
Guillermo Coria's dreams of
winning the French Open
final last year collapsed when
Dutchman Martin Verkerk
blasted past him in the semi-
finals.
There was no such repeat
this year, when the world
number three beat Britain's Tim
Henman on Friday to set up a
final against compatriot Gaston
Gaudio, who had beaten another
Argentine, David Nalbandian,
earlier.
With 48 victories in his last
50 matches on clay, Coria is the
undisputed king of the surface
and in a tournament dominated
by clay-court specialists for the
past 20 years, he had few rivals
on his way to today's final.


Carlos Ferrero could have
challenged him, but a succession
of injuries and personal
problems toppled the Spaniard
from his throne.
Three times champion
Gustavo Kuerten was also
hampered by a nagging hip
problem, Andre Agassi was
i-.nr-Lnarerd while


_L'Ji yyr's gba131PjQfl Jiiwi-


Switzerland's world number
one Roger Federer is not
quite ready to dominate
tennis on all surfaces.
Spain's Carlos Moya
looked the only serious threat to
Coria's ambitions but the
Argentine demolished the 1998
champion in straight sets in the
quarter-finals..
The unseeded Gaudio
now stands between Coria
and his seemingly pre-
written destiny, though
Coria's record against his
compatriots is almost as
impressive as his record on
clay.
Since turning
professional, he has met
fellow-Argentines 25 times
and won 23. One of the two
losses was against Gaudio -


her eyes.
"My dream was to win
Roland Garros and I'm sorry to
have lost today."
The last Russian to have
reached a grand slam final was
Olga Morozova, who lost in the
final here and at Wimbledon in
1974. Morozova is now
Dementieva's coach and her
charge could do no better.
"I just made too many
mistakes, I couldn't do
anything," Dementieva said.
At one point early in the
second set she screamed at
herself in Russian. "I shouted 'I
hate myself'...which is true,"
she explained, before breaking
down in tears.

ON-COURT SPATS
Fittingly, for a first grand
slam final between two
Russians, both players had
chosen to wear red. There the
-similarity ended.
Myskina is a firebrand with
short, dark hair. She is famed for i
her on-court spats with coach
and ex-boyfriend Jens Gerlach.
Dementieva's long blonde
locks hang in a pony-tail. She
towers above Myskina and is
more softly-spoken and demure.
She is also the more nervy
character. This led to her
downfall on centre court.
While Myskina appeared to
revel in the final-day
atmosphere, her 22-year-old
friend simply froze.
The free-hitting style with
which she ousted pre-
tournament favourite Amelie
Mauresmo in the quarter-finals
never appeared as she fell apart
in front of 15,000 Parisians.
Having grown up together
and shared a coach in their

KINGSTON, Jamaica -
President of the West Indies
Cricket Board (WICB), Teddy
Griffith has expressed
confidence that the region
would stage the best ever
Cricket World Cup.
In delivering an address at
the Annual Awards Banquet of
the Medical Association of
Jamaica last night, the WICB
President said: "A mere thirty-
three months from today, I have
little doubt that we in the
Caribbean should be basking in
the glow of having hosted 'the
best Cricket World Cup ever'."
Griffith was speaking at the
Jamaica Pegasus Hotel,
Kingston on the Theme,
Challenges of Modern Day
Cricket.
He reminded his
audience that last November,
in his first major statement
as President of the WICB, he
had told the Melbourne
Cricket Club that the ICC
CWC 2007 World Cup was to
be a Caribbean event, with a
distinctive Caribbean flavour
and would deliver maximum
economic returns, consistent
with cricketing objectives, for
the benefit of all the
countries of the Caribbean.
He had also said then that
the ICC CWC 2007 would
leave a legacy by means of
which the future of West
Indies cricket, its
infrastructure and its
development could be
sustained after 2007.
"I hold fast to those aims
and objectives and encourage
you and your colleagues
throughout the Caribbean to
examine ways in which you can
contribute to achieving them,"
he told the gathering.
In realising those goals, the
benefits, he said, would go far
beyond the boundary and it was
with that thought in mind that
CARICOM leaders had been
supporting the 2007 World Cup
preparations.
The WICB President
warned however, that to achieve
that legacy, every Sector of
society in every country of the
Caribbean, had to lend its
expertise and support to the
effort. He alluded to the example
set at last Cricket World Cup in
Southern Africa where there was
"a veritable army of volunteers
ranging from professionals,
(lawyers, doctors, engineers,)
through university students to
school children."
"Their commitment to the
success of the tournament in
their country led them to lend
their assistance, in many cases
unpaid, to the organizers, in
roles such as guides, ushers and
liaison officers.
It is that kind of passion and
pride in a country that can help
to make the Cricket World Cup
2007 in the West Indies an
unforgettable experience both
for us as hosts and our
visitors," Griffith said.
He outlined the structure
o erseeing the preparations for
V) ,/ ps1 ',] -


and which would handle the
operations during the ICC CWC
2007. He informed the MAJ
and their guests that the WICB
Shad established a subsidiary,
ICC CWC WI 2007 Inc, which
had its headquarters in Jamaica
with Managing Director and
Chief Executive Officer, Chris
Dehring and a chairman in
Rawle Brancker.
The board of directors, he
said, comprised of individuals
who had distinguished
themselves in varied areas of
expertise particularly in areas
that .will be significant in
ensuring the smooth running of
the preparations and of the
tournament itself.
"At the Board level, we
have sought to keep the leaders
of CARICOM fully informed
and involved for it is
principally with their assistance
that we can develop world class
venues, grounds and practice
facilities as well as to be able to
stage world class opening and
closing ceremonies; provide high
quality accommodation for
participating teams and visitors;
put in place appropriate
legislation to protect commercial
rights; and implement security
and anti-terrorism strategies, a
requirement which has become
an indispensable part of any
major event in today's world,"
he pointed out.
He said eleven (11)
countries had presented bids to
host events based on the Bid.
Book and the Venue Assessment
Team (VAT) comprising an
independent group of world
games experts was in the
process of assessing the bids
using criteria which took into
account such matters as the
cricket stadium and cricket
operations, security issues,
medical facilities, finance,
accommodation, political
environment, local organising
committee, disaster
management, media facilities,
accreditation, communications,
marketing support, and
immigration and customs
operations.
The VAT Team he said,
would conclude its visit to
each bidding country in the
coming week and their
technical assessment and
recommendations would be
passed on to the Board of the
ICC CWC WI 2007 Inc. who
would make the allocations of
Matches that wotld be sentto
the ICC for approval.
The countries selected to
host matches would be announced
on July 4 while the award of
matches would be revealed on July
12, Griffith said.
By December 31, 2004, Host
Venue Contract negotiations should
be finalised, the WICB President
said.
"From that point on the
pace of preparation will be
heightened as the countries
put processes in place to
meet their obligations under
their contracts," Griffith
added.

CHAIRMAN of the National
Sports Commission (NSC)
Laurie Lewis told the
National Sevens team that
they carry the pride of the
country as they participate in
the North America & West
Indies Association (NAWIRA)
World Cup qualifiers in the
Cayman Islands.
Lewis made the statement
during a pep talk before the final
training session at the Thomas
Lands YMCA, Friday
afternoon, honouring an
invitation of President of the
Guyana Rugby Football Union
(GRFU) Kit Nascimento.
Lewis told the players they
must understand their role in

being in the national team.
"You are representing the
country, so the whole country
relies on you. It ought to inspire
you to do greater things on the
field of play."
The longstanding
sportsman and administrator
pointed out that certain
situations make people do
things that they would not do
normally, citing examples of
when people face danger, like a
man scaling a fence during the
riot years.
"Sometimes you have to
force or drive yourself
internally. All of us are capable
of doing more than we feel we
can do. It means you must put
in the extra effort."
Lewis said during a game,


persons lose focus and some
even go numb, which is a natural
human shortcoming.
"You have to get back
into yourselves. Sometimes
you have to re-direct your
focus, saying to yourselves -
I'm playing for Guyana, we
have got to win this match.
There is no greater joy in
any sport than in
representing your country."
The former National
badminton player pointed out
that once an opportunity is
missed there is no recalling it,
thus players must remain
focused.
"Other opportunities might
come, but the one that is
important in any, will never
come back. From the time you


hit the ground, you must be
pumped up."
Lewis disclosed that
Nascimento hounded him for
support and he had to
respond favourably because
rugby has produced
"tangible" results.
"And even though we're
is real financial difficulties.
we had to support this team
because you've shown, you' e
done something. But thert -"
a payback you must do your
very best in ensuring that you
carry that flag of Guyana
properly."
The sport administrator
warned the players that
deliberate distractions would be
put before them in form of
women, food, drink, among
others.
"Some people set it up.
It is all part of the
international way of dealing
with opposition to drop
your guards."
Lewis urged the players to
control themselves because
there would always be
opportunities to indulge after
successfully representing the
country. He also warned them
about being enticed to take
things that might not be readily
available to them.
"There is a natural
tendency for the have-nots to
want what the haves have, and
you have to guard yourself,
your dignity, the dignity of this
country in ensuring that you are
not tempted to move what the
haves have."
The NSC chairman
wished the team the very best
and urged them to bring back
the "bacon."; They depart on
Tuesday for the Cayman
Islands.

Every felt socially out of
sync? Unable to
connect with others in a
group even dreading
the thought of leaving
the house? You are not
alone. SHERRY
DIXON explains what's
going on.

SOME days you walk into.
a room and you're simply
vibrating with 'I'm so fine';
you are bright, funny and so
sharp you could cut glass. It's
as if everyone else is moving in
slow motion'while you've had
hours to think of what you're
going to say, and when it comes
out it's absolutely perfect. This
is the day you flirt like a
pussycat and spin on your heel
without falling flat on your face.
It's still you, but the turbo-
charged, deluxe model. You are
sparkling, untouchable.
We've all had days like this.
It's as if you're at one with the
universe. It's that incredible
feeling everything is working
exactly the way it should, it


seems so easy you wonder why
life can't be like that all the time.
But it isn't, is it? And the
opposite of the turbo-charged
you is as depressing as the
other is dazzling.
Meet Outsider You. This is
your alter ego that pauses
outside, not wanting to walk
into a room even if it's full of
people you've known and
loved all your life the effort
of communicating just seems
too immense. You feel dull and
uninteresting even worse,
you're uninterested. You feel as
if you're under water and
everyone else is on dry land -
they're operating faster and
more fluently and, unlike you,
they're not drowning. You're
utterly out of sync and at odds
.with your surroundings. You're
the Outsider looking in. This is
the day you trip over your
tongue and a perfectly smooth
carpet. And life being what it is,
this is usually also the day you
bump into your ex... Aaaagh!

BEYOND YOUR
CONTROL
There is one thing, however,


that Turbo-charged You and
Outsider You have in common
- the belief that whatever state
you're in will never end. When
you're up, you feel so powerful
and positive you begin to
believe you can tap into that
feeling at will. And when you're
down, you believe you've fallen
so far into the pit you'll never
manage to scramble out
"That's why it's
important to see these states
as opposite sides of the same
coin," explains psychologist
Laverne Walcott. "Part of
being a healthy person is to
understand that emotions
come and go. There are highs
and lows, and you can expect
to experience both. If you're
able to acknowledge
consciously while you're
experiencing the high or the
low, that the emotional state
will pass, you're doing OK."
"Healthy people don't
expect to operate on only one
plane," Walcott continues.
"They know they will feel a
range of emotions, but they let
them come in, do their business
and leave they don't get stuck


in one emotional space."
Walcott is quick to point
out that as a woman, you
should consider the time of the
month and look for pre-
menstrual patterns.
"You'd be amazed at how
PMS can knock some women
about," she says. "And it's
often only afterwards they
realise PMS may have been
why they felt so at odds with
the world. If they realise it at
the time, it will help make the
problem more manageable,
because they know they've
survived it before."
There is no doubt being
in Outsider You mode can be
terrifying when you're
feeling so disconnected from
other people you can barely
look them in the eye, let
alone speak to them. There's
something quite frightening
about feeling alone in a
crowded room. It's not like
being alone at home, where
you can put your loneliness
down to choice. It's as if
you've been given the
opportunity, but you still
can't get it together. So you


feel lonely but also ashamed
of being such a loser.
"We have all experienced
emotional abandonment at
some stage in you lives," says
Walcott. "None of us had
perfect parents. When you
feel disconnected, you slot
into your inner child, you
feel lost and afraid, and it's
incredibly difficult to put on
a mask and socialise. And,
not only that, doing this can
actually be
counterproductive because
you arrive home feeling more
anxious than when you left."

RE-CONNECTING
Most people try to force
themselves to go out and be
with other people in an attempt
to drive out loneliness. But,
according to Walcott, what they
most need to do is stay at home
and deal with the feelings.
"You feel disconnected and
vulnerable because there's
something going on that you're
not looking at," she says. "You
need to give yourself time out.
Look at what your needs are,
and don't distract yourself from

IN THE Caribbean, Type 2 diabetes is more common than Type
1 diabetes and occurs more often in adults and obese persons. In
Sobese persons, the insulin produced by the pancreas cannot be used
efficiently; it follows that these persons can reduce their risk of
developing diabetes by reducing their weight through a healthy diet
and increased physical activity.
Persons who have diabetes and are obese can often successfully
control their blood glucose through a well-balanced diet and a good
physical activity programme. In persons who require insulin as part
of their treatment, carefully planned and nutritionally adequate diets
are equally as important as insulin. Diet therefore plays a very
important role both in the prevention and management of diabetes.
Nyam News investigates this relationship between diabetes and diet.

Diet and the control of diabetes

Diabetes cannot be cured. However, it can be controlled and a
person with diabetes can have a full and satisfying life. Diet is critical
in achieving this goal. Controlling diabetes means:

Keeping the blood sugar level normal or near normal.
Keeping blood fat low to prevent heart disease. This is
important as heart disease is nearly three times more common in
persons with diabetes than in those without.

The nutrition goals for the proper management of diabetes
are:

1. To maintain blood glucose levels in the normal range (or as
close to normal as safely possible) to prevent or reduce the risk for
complications of diabetes.
2. To maintain a good blood lipid profile so as to reduce the
risk of micro-vascular disease, i.e. problems affecting the eyes, the
kidney and the lower extremities.
3. To maintain blood pressure levels that reduce risk for vascular


disease, i.e. heart disease and stroke.
4. To prevent and treat the chronic complications of diabetes
by modifying diet and lifestyle as appropriate; to prevent and treat
obesity, high blood lipids, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and
kidney disease.
5. To improve health through healthy food choices and physical
activity.
6. To address individual nutritional needs taking into
consideration personal and cultural preferences and lifestyle while
respecting the individual's wishes and willingness to change.
This type of diabetes determines how it is controlled through
diet. For persons who require insulin or tablets as part of treatment,
dietary management is aimed at:
Reducing high blood sugar levels as well as preventing blood
sugar levels from becoming too low.
Supporting adequate growth and development in children who
have this type of diabetes.


Preventing long-term complications.
Providing all nutritional requirements.
In those who do not require insulin or tablets for treatment,
dietary management is aimed at:
Attaining and maintaining desirable body weight through
restricting and regulating calorie intake.
Reducing high blood sugar levels.
Preventing high blood pressure as well as heart disease.
Providing all nutritional requirements.
The latest studies on diet and diabetes have shown that
carbohydrate foods form an important element in diabetes control.
Carbohydrate foods can be divided into three main groups:
1. Starchy foods such as yam, sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes,
rice, pasta, and breadfruit.
2. Fructose foods such as fruits.
3. Simple sugars such as cane sugar and honey.
Studies have shown that all three groups affect the
con' )1 of diabetes and the most important factor is to control
the amounts of these foods
taken in the diet. As most
persons with Type 2 diabetes are
.- also obese many need to control
the total amount of calories
they have in their diet It is for
this reason that many persons
with diabetes are told to avoid
'empty calories' whichare found
in sweets, sugar, honey, sweet
drinks and cakes. Also, many of
these high calorie foods have a
,combination of high fat and
sugar which makes them the
foods most likely to increase

FACING THE MUSIC
A friend of mine told me
recently that she felt guilty
because she did not feel able
to confide in her long-term
friends anymore.
Confronting or confiding in
your friends is not always the
best solution, although it may
seem the obvious one. Being
Outsider You allows you to
look at your friends with new
eyes. You may discover
you're finding it hard to
assimilate with people you
have been friends with for a
long time because you no
longer have anything in
common. These may not be
people you'd consider
being friends with if you
met them afresh today.
Sometimes we change as
people but choose to ignore
those changes and
concentrate on the way we
used to be. Of course, feeling
alone in a group can also be

The body-mouth connection


-(part
IN THE recent study,
after comparing the
oral health of 256
adult heart patients
with that of 250 others with
no heart disease, researchers
did some math. Their
calculations showed that the
strongest predictor of heart
disease was periconronitis, an
infection around the third
molar; followed by root
remains, in which teeth
decay at the point that only
the tip of the root remains;
gingivitis, an inflammation of
gums around the teeth due to
improper cleaning; cavities;
and missing teeth.
It seems that bacteria often
in the mouth can appear as the
same athersclerotic plaque
associated with cardiovascular
disease. Research shows that
women who have gum disease
during pregnancy are seven
times are more likely to have a
baby that is born to early and
too small than other expecting
mothers. The risk increases with
the severity of their gum
problems. The reason is
because when you have
periodontal disease, the
inflammation causes certain
chemicals to be released in your


iii
bloodstream that could affect
the baby's birth weight and
delivery. So if you are pregnant,
make sure you pay a visit to
your dentist. A study last year
in the Journal of Periodontology
suggests that performing a
common procedure to remove
plaque and tartar from teeth that
cause gum problems could
reduce the risk of premature
delivery.
Leukemia causes gums to be
fiery red, very inflamed, and
spongy.
When you binge and
purge, it creates acid in the
mouth that eats away at tooth
enamel, especially on the
insides of teeth. Bulimics
(people who crave eating) also
have a lot of more gum
recession and higher rate of
cavities.
Kidney problems can cause
inflamed gums.
Gastro esophageal reflux
disease (GERD) can also cause
tooth erosion from digestive
acids entering the mouth.
Not getting enough iron
can cause sores at the
corners at the corners of the
mouth, the taste buds to
become small, or can lead to
a sore tongue. In some cases,


The Dentist Advises
I li* tIi.1mMM


advanced iron deficiency can
lead to anemia and may cause
scarring in the throat and
esophagus, making
swallowing difficult. While
vitamin C deficiency causes
gums to easily bruise and
bleed, deficiency can lead to
tooth loss. Vitamin D
deficiency boosts risk of jaw
fracture and gum disease.
As you age, there's a natural
decline in the amount of saliva
you produce. But to add insult
to injury, hundreds of drugs
including antidepressants, high
blood pressure medications,
and allergy remedies such as
antihistamines and
decongestants can cause dry
mouth. When the mouth dries
out, you don't have the
protective enzymes in saliva
that help kill bacteria. Not
only that, but tissue dries,
which causes cells to die on
the surface, allowing it to
proliferate. A dry mouth can
be avoided by drinking
plenty of water or chewing
gum.
Still, the body-mouth
connection stresses the
importance of that long
preached advice: See your
dentist regularly, especially


during those vulnerable times
of womanhood- or if you're
about to be hospitalized. If
you're going. to the hospital
for an extended stay (e.g. for
surgery) having an oral exam
and good cleaning is a great
idea because you're going to
decrease the risk of hospital
acquired problems such as
pneumonia. It is also
especially advised to have a
cleaning before having an
operation done on a joint,
because the mouth can be a
source of bacteria that, if it
seeds, can cause an infection
that could destroy tissue
around the joint. But even if
you're feeling perfectly fine,
there's good reason for
opening wide and staring at
the ceiling as your mouth is
picked and probed.
Today, more dentists
aren't just looking at teeth
and gums. They're giving you
a good medical exam without
you even realising it.

a sign of depression.


How do you know when you should take Outsider You
more seriously?
"It could definitely be a sign of depression," says Walcott.
"But more often it's a sign you need to take stock of your life.
You feel disconnected from others because you no longer have
much in common." Take action, and you'll be turbo charged and
on top of the world once more.

GETTING YOUR GROOVE BACK
Transform yourself from Outsider You to Turbo You in 10
easy steps
1. Remember even your most dynamic friends feel like this
sometimes.
2. Don't be afraid of feeling down, it's a completely normal
emotion.
3. Stop pressuring yourself to always be out socialising.
4. Make staying at home a choice, rather than a default
decision.
5. Don't veg out in front of the TV make a conscious effort
to process what you're going through.
6. Writing down how you feel will help you understand your
emotional state.
7. Realise that both up and down phases will always pass.
8. Confide in at least one good friend, your pastor or a loved
one for extra emotional support
9. Seek professional help if you are feeling abnormally down
for long periods.
10. Take strength in the knowledge that Turbo You will
always make a comeback, no matter what.

The diet -





body weight and worsen the management of diabetes.
Foods containing carbohydrate from ground provisions,
rice, pasta and fruits should be included in a healthy diet but
care should be given to the amounts used daily. Where
alternatives to sugar exist with fewer or no calories, these should
be used instead e.g. using water or sugar free drinks instead of
sugary drinks or using non-caloric artificial sweeteners instead
of sugar with teas and coffee. The diet should also be low in fat
and methods for reducing fat in the diet should be applied. These
include the trimming of all visible fat from meats, the removal
of skin from chicken before cooking it, using low fat milk and
lower fat cheese and changing cooking practices from frying to
boiling or baking or stewing. The addition of fat in meals should
also be controlled. These changes will help reduce the total daily
intake of calories so as to help reduce weight and improve blood
glucose control.

Special needs of pregnant/lactating women with diabetes
If a pregnant or lactating woman has diabetes, special
consideration must also be given to her dietary needs. The type
of diabetes she has and the added demands of pregnancy or
lactation will determine these needs. If there are complications,
her diet will have to be modified still further, while making it as
attractive as possible.
Thus diet is an important part for the treatment of
diabetes. Each person with diabetes needs to be provided
with an individualised diet plan, appropriate counselling
in the use of the plan and follow-up as necessary. This is
best done by a professional nutritionist or dietitian in
consultation with the medical practitioner who is looking
after the person living with diabetes.

Life was not this complicated
a year ago. I can make this
short, but there is so much
and I want to be fair.
Stage one: friends. A friend
decides our relationship needs to
be advanced to a sexual/dating
level. This was probably his
objective when we first started
hanging out, however, I could
not picture us together. He was
not my type, the age difference
was huge (15 years), and I just
couldn't see an "us."
Stage two: friends plus.
Imagine my surprise when I fell
head over heels in love. He
quickly and effortlessly. became
my favourite person in the
whole world. Once we started
sleeping together, well, he's the
best I ever had, and he's said the
same about me. Regardless, it's
been a huge headache.
He's got this nice little
routine that works for him, and
I never once worried about
losing my independence because
he was so dead set against
losing his. It didn't take long to
realise I adore this man, and we
fit great together. The beginning
of the end was saying this aloud
to him.


I know the rules: always
hang up first, leave them
wanting more, never give details,
blah, blah, blah. But I made the
decision to love him and that
negated the Barbie and Ken
mating ritual in my mind. Not
in his. The chase was the most
exciting part to him.
Stage three: stage fright.
He "loves me but is not in
love with me." (What does
that mean, anyway?) We
started the cycle of break up,
just friends, get together,
have sex, break up, etc. We
finally stopped dating, again,
two months ago. I've been
heartbroken since.

VALERIE

Valerie, in one of P.G.
Wodehouse's novels, Bertie
Wooster says, "It's like
Shakespeare. It sounds well
enough, but it doesn't
actually mean anything."
That is what we think of "I
love you, but I'm not in love
with you." It sounds" well
enough, but it doesn't
actually mean anything good.
What does it mean? It means
"I don't love you."
'One line of your note
jumped out at us. "He's got
this nice little routine that
works for him." That's the
situation in a nutshell. He's
got this nice little routine
that works for him. Not for
both of you, but for him.
And he doesn't want to
change. You believed his
objective from the start was
to advance your friendship to
a sexual level. Friendship was
never his objective.

Sunday Chronicle June 6, 2004


N 1951, a woman
successfully
brought a
complaint against
her husband for persistent
cruelty and a magistrate
granted her judgment against
him.
But the husband appealed
to the Full Court, which set side
the magistrate's Order, thereby
depriving the wife of
maintenance on the grounds that
her complaint was filed out of
time.
The Full Court was
constituted by Justices of
Appeal Mr. Frederick Boland
and Mr. Harold Hughes.
At the hearing of the
appeal, the husband was
represented by Mr. L.F.S
Burnham while Mr. R.M.
Morris appeared for the wife.
In the appeal, the wife,
Ramcharran, had lodged a
complaint against her husband
on July 3, 1951, alleging that
he had been guilty of persistent
cruelty from February 1950 to
June 1951 and had wilfully
neglected to maintain her.
That complaint was
withdrawn by the woman.
On February 22, 1952, she
filed another complaint alleging
persistent cruelty for the same
period as before, and wilful
neglect to maintain. She had left
her husband on July 2, 1951,
and had not returned to the
matrimonial home.
The husband pleaded not
guilty to the second complaint
and at the close of the wife's
case, his Counsel submitted that
he (the husband) was entitled to
rely on a plea of autrefois acquit
(meaning that the defendant was


Bf George
JBarclay


Full oI urt set aSiidre


Iaistrate 's Omrdere on apiea


already tried and acquitted for


L.F.S BURNHAM, S.C.


the same offence).
The Magistrate rejected the
submission, found the husband
guilty of persistent cruelty and
ordered him to pay the sum of
$8.50 per week for her use and
maintenance. The husband


appealed to the Full Court of
the Supreme Court of
Judicature.
That Full Court, on hearing
the appeal, held that the
violation of a wife's rights to
her husband's consortium is in
essence a wrong against her
personally and is of a civil
nature as distinct from a
criminal character. Butas the
legislature provided a summary
remedy to enforce a wife's
rights, these civil matters are
called quasi criminal and as there
was not adjudication on the
merits, there could be no bar to
another summons based on the
lodgement of a fresh complaint,
provided that the complaint was
not in respect of wrongs alleged
to have occurred more than six
months preceding the date of
the fresh complaint.
As the last act of cruelty
alleged in the second complaint
occurred more than six months
before the filing, it was out of'
time and as such there was no
evidence of wilful neglect to
maintain, the Full Court had
ruled.
Justice Boland, who


delivered the judgment of the
Full Court, noted that the appeal
was against the order of the
Magistrate of the Georgetown
Judicial District whereby on the
ground of his persistent cruelty
towards his wife, he was ordered
to pay the sum of $8.50 a week
for her use and maintenance.
Before the Magistrate,
the appellant did not enter
the special plea of autrefois
acquit He then pleaded "not
guilty", but at the close of the
case for the complainant,
defendant's Counsel
submitted that there was no
case to answer on the ground
that, "the defendant can enter
a plea of autrefois acquit".
The Magistrate rejected the
submission and made the order
as above specified.
The sole question to be
determined in the appeal was


whether the appellant was
entitled to be acquitted on the
ground that he was autrefois
acquit.
The Justice of Appeal
pointed out that it was
established in the evidence
before the Magistrate that prior
to the complaint which was
lodged on February 22, 1952,
the wife had, on July 3, 1951,
lodged a complaint against her
husband. In that early
complaint she had alleged that
during the period from February
1950 to June 1951, her husband
had been guilty of persistent
cruelty and/or wilful neglect to
provide her with reasonable
maintenance.
It was the identical
allegation she made in her
subsequent complaint of
February 22, 1952.
When that early complaint


of July 3, 1951, had come on for
hearing before the Magistrate on
August 21, 1951, her husband
pleaded not guilty and evidence
was led by the wife.
The case continued during
two subsequent sittings of the
Court during which one other
witness testified.
Ultimately, at a hearing on
December 7, 1951, the wife,
according to the Magistrate's
record, withdrew her complaint,
the Justice of Appeal disclosed.
It was pointed out that
under cross-examination in
the case she subsequently
filed, the wife admitted that
all the evidence concerning
cruelty she was then giving,
she had given in the earlier

by its withdrawal, the first case
ended without a decision by the
Magistrate on the merits".
Continuing, it was
pointed out that the
proceedings brought by the
wife were in each case
instituted by virtue of the
provisions of Section 41 of the
Summary Jurisdiction
(Procedure) Ordinance,
Chapter 9, the procedure for
which is regulated by the
Summary Jurisdiction
(Procedure) Ordinance,
Chapter 14.
Justice Boland added: "In
this matter under appeal, the
withdrawal, it must be assumed,
was with leave of the
Magistrate, who, it would
appear, made no order for costs
in favour of the defendant.
There was no adjudication on
the merits. Therefore, there


could be no bar to another
summons based on the
lodgement of a fresh complaint
provided that the complaint was
not in respect of wrongs alleged
to have occurred more than six
months preceding the date of
the fresh complaint which is
the period of limitation
prescribed for the bringing of a
complaint before the Magistrate
by the Summary Jurisdiction
(Procedure) Ordinance, Chapter
14.
"The fresh complaint
which is dated February 22
complains that the
defendant during the
period of February 1950 to
February 1952 and up to
the present is guilty of -
(1) Persistent cruelty to the
complainant; and/or
(2) Wilful neglect to provide
reasonable maintenance for the
complainant
"As regards the persistent
cruelty which is stated in the
order itself to be the sole ground
for the order, the complainant,
in her evidence admitted that
she was referring to the same act
of cruelty which she had related
in her evidence in the previous
case.


"According to the notes of
evidence in the previous case,
she was beaten on July 2, 1951,
and left the house that day. She
adniitted-in her evidence that
she and her husband were never
together again. This therefore,
was the last act of cruelty and
it occurred more than six
months before the filing of her
second complaint on February
22, 1952. So far as cruelty is
concerned, her second complaint
was therefore out of time.-
"In the result, we hold that
as the last act of cruelty had
occurred more than six months
before the date of the complaint,
the proceedings in relation to
persistent cruelty were barred
by lapse of time, and that the
appellant was therefore not
liable to have an order made
against him.
"It should be added that the
setting aside of the Magistrate's
Order would be no bar to her
bringing a complaint if she
establishes at some later date
that she was then being left
without reasonable means of
support".
Accordingly the appeal
was allowed and the
Magistrate's order set aside.

'Wanted: seas and oceans, dead or alive'


World


Environment Day


was celebrated


yesterday
WHEN DID IT ALL BEGIN?

World Environment Day was established by the
United Nations General Assembly in 1972 to
mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference
on the Human Environment. Since then, it has
become a yearly fixture and on June 5 of every year, World
Environment Day is celebrated. Each year, a different theme is
selected to focus the activities to draw attention to specific areas.

This year's Environmental Day

THE THEME OF THIS YEAR WORLD ENVIRONMENT


DAY WAS "WANTED! SEAS AND
OCEANS DEAD OR ALIVE?"


This year's theme implores us to think about our
oceans and seas. But why you may ask are our seas and
oceans important? Well many persons take these vital
water bodies for granted, but they in fact provide us with
many services and millions of people depend on them for
their livelihoods.
Many of you may be wonder just what the difference between
a sea and an ocean. Well, both seas and oceans are bodies of salt
water, but a sea is surrounded by land.
We may not all be aware of the significance of these large water
bodies or think that they need attention, but in fact they do. The
box below gives us some key facts about seas and oceans, some of
which I am sure you will all be surprised to know.
These are just a few facts about seas and oceans, to make you
more aware of their significance.
WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY ACTIVITIES

To commemorate World Environment Day, the
Environmental Protection Agency coordinated a week
of activities, commencing with a 'Green Walk'. This
year the participation was tremendous and we take
this opportunity to thank everyone for participating, and for those
of you who did not,.see you there next year. Congratulations are
also in line for Banks DIH for securing the prize for 'Best Banner'.
The other major activity undertaken was the Environmental
Exhibition, held at the Umana Yana on Wednesday June 2. On
display were exhibits from numerous agencies and stakeholders.
To commemorate this day there are numerous activities that can
be undertaken. Some of which can include Clean-up campaigns in
Schools and communities, debating competitions, tree planting and
awareness campaigns among others.
But do remember that we have to think about our environment
everyday and not just once a year.
Next week's article will delve deeper into the topic of
Oceans in observance of 'International Oceans Day' to be
celebrated on Tuesday June 8 2004.

A THREE-DAY, glitzy,

about the making of a beauty
queen will hit the National
Cultural Centre stage next
month.
One of Guyana's premier

who saw the need for new and
livelier tastes in the country's
entertainment industry, has
collaborated with Managing
Director of Eyeful Creative
Agency, Christopher Goodridge,
to produce the extraordinary

agent we are giving you
)mething in return. We are giving
ou-a musical, uinie thing thait i
entertaining, educational and at
ie end of it I think everyone
ains," Moore said.
'Crown, Pearls and
lancing Girls' is centred on a
irl who lived a significant part
f her childhood and
dolesceni years following her
ream 6f becoming Miss


ruyana World, and
presenting Guyana at the
prestigious Miss World
international beauty pageant.
Moore explains: "The story
tarts with this little girl whose
ream i- to be crowned Miss
;uanta World She has been
Ceding pageants of this nature on
revisionn for many years, and
;as \iewing the crowning of a
liss Guyana World on television
,ith her mom and dad when she
)ld them she would like to be
rowned Miss Guyana World
hen she grows older.
"And then we took it from
,ere. We took it into her growing


period, through dance of course
and, as a young lady, how
seriously s-he .ok the-dhallenge
of becoming Miss Guyana,
regardless of whatever obstacles
came her way," he continued.
After several years of
personal preparation with the
pageant in mind, the girl
blossomed into a beautiful, well-
rounded young woman who
thinks slhe is ready to take up the


challenges of the pageant and
become Guyana's beauty
ambassador at the Miss World
international pageant. Then Ana
applied for a spot in contestant's
row!
Moore explained that the
sequence ol eents to be played
outr features the many stages of
her personal life and her
acceptance into the pageant, as
uell as tie stages of an actual
pageant and the making of a Miss
Guyana World queen..
"One of the objectives of the
play is to get people to understand
what is it that we're looking for
when it comes to choosing a


young lady to represent
Guyana," he said adding that
through music and dance, the
different elements in the pageant
will be highlighted.
"We on behind the scenes to


see how the girls feel when they
are involved in pageants, and give
the audience an idea of the judging
criteria and what is it that the
judges look for internationally,"
he added.


FAIRY TALE PRODUCTION: Miss Guyana World Committee
Artistic Director, Derek Moore and Miss Guyana World 2003,
Alexis Glasgow.


"(The show) deals with
things that young women are
faced with their boyfriends
being insecure, not wanting them
to be a part of pageants; people
writing some scandalous things
about them in the newspaper to
tarnish their character, etc. I'm
trying to show women out there
how strength of character is
important It's very, very
important. There are people out
there who are just willing to stain
you in anyway, and it's for you
to -Inoui how well you can
overcome that and just get along
with what is it you really want
to do in life."
The director said through the
show, he is giving people the
opportunity to understand why
the pageant committee-operates
the way it does, so that the next
time it delivers a pageant, patrons
would have a general
understanding and give their full
support.

TRAVELLING-
AN EYE-OPENER
Moore, who danced for
several years with the National
School of Dance, identifies
music and dance as his
hobbies, and hence, the reason
for his choice of a production
of that nature.
"I always wanted to do a
musical production, probably not
this but I always wanted to do a
musical. I always saw the need
because I like dancing... I know I
have the ability to create
dancing.... I have that passion for
it!"
However, what pushed' the
idea more was his experience
travelling and attending various
cultural events internationally.
"Travelling opens my eyes a
lot. When T travel I get the
opportunity -' go and see
Broadway shows and musicaln

MWAESTRO of Caribbean comedy, Paul Keens-Douglas and
mme of his 'Talk Tent' buddies wml team up with Guyana's
)awn Mighty Rebel, Henry Rodney and Mignon Lowe to add
e spice to the coming weekend, in a show that promubes
Sbe pure bacchanal.
And while there was no mention of the now legendary
Hante Merle' and her pink parasol for which Keens-Douglas
js famous, word is that the Trini posse will comprise
veteran calypsonian, Llewelyn McIntosh, better known as
Lord Short Pants; Miguel Browne, who is noted for his
dialect poetry; playwright Felix Edinborough, best known
for his signature portrayal of the carnival character, Pierrot


to share stage


Grenade; and the lone woman in the team, Samantha Pierre,
wham it is said is fast becoming a household name in
storTtelling circles.
According to promoters, GEMS Theatre Productions,
Rebel's role during both performances is that of 'Singing MC, as
he will be introducing each performer in song, or extempo as the
medium is called in 'tent' parlance.
The first show is billed for 20:00hrs on Saturday at the
National Cultural Centre on Mandela and Homestretch
Aveies, iand the second the following day in the Savannah
Suite of Le Meridien Pegasus Hotel. The latter event

"The main cast is already on
board. The dancers (and) actors
are rehearsing at Martina's Sports
Club. As we get closer to the
show, we will need fillers to make
up that entourage of persons to
make that entire cast," he said.
The three-day show begins
July 22 with a presentation for
children. The following two days
are for a general audience.
The actors are being trained
by coordinator of 'Let's Dance'
company Royston King, Classic
Dance Studio choreographer,
Clive Powell, dancer and actress
Leslyn Lashley of 'A Force to
Reckon With' fame, Moore and
Goodridge.
He had advertised and
auditioned for professional
dancers, and also selected dancers
from some private dancing
schools. Moore made clear that
the dancers at the National School
of Dance are talented and could
have been used, but he "did not
use that dance school for the
simple reason that the other dance
schools feel that they needed a
chance too. I was told that and I
decided to run with the idea of
using then and I was quite
impressed with the audition."
He explained that finding
someone to play the role of Ana,
the main character who tells the
fantastic story of her motivation
and courage in trying to live her
dream, was a thorough task since
in the script she is an
accomplished dancer who
possesses certain qualities of a
queen and model. He haid 1o find
the perfect match, nothin.- less!
Ana is being played cunentll by
t% o N oun2 ladies. one .,.f ho i'
an understudy.
'"The script itselriell uii what
is it that girls need to do. arLi what
is it we are looking for AprNl from

"It is just a fairy tait when
you consider the script, but it
has a message and through
dance and music we were able
to capture that." the pl. writer
told the Sunday Chronicle.

By Kerstin Gehmlich


p' ARIS (Reuters) As
a boy Daniel
I Rouxel slept
locked in a chicken coop
because his grandmother was
so ashamed of his origins -
the love affair of her French
daughter with a German
army officer in occupied
France during World War IL
Like Rouxel, tens of
thousands of these half-German
children in post-war France
were bullied and humiliated by
their families, neighbours and
teachers. Their mothers faced
public abuse as punishment for
sleeping with the enemy.
As France gears up to
commemorate the 60th
anniversary of the June 6 D-
Day landings that freed it from
the Nazis, a book 'Enfants
maudits' ('Cursed Children')
confronts it with an unsavoury
chapter of its history.
"These children became the
personification of the German


enemy when the war was over.
It was revenge on the innocent,"
said Jean-Paul Picaper, who has
compiled the memories of some
of France's estimated 200,000
half-German war children.
Rouxel, a so-called filss de
Boche' a 'Kraut's kid' recalls
how shortly after France's
liberation, he spent a night
hiding under a bridge after a
local official humiliated him in
front of his entire Brittany
village.
The man made Rouxel
stand up after Sunday mass
and declared: "Do you people
know the difference between
the son of a Boche and a
swallow? I'll tell you: The
swallow takes its babies with
it when it leaves France. But
the Boche leaves them
behind."
Rouxel's mother fled after
the war to avoid the ordeal of
thousands of French women,
who were shaven and then


paraded through French streets
for their "horizontal
collaboration."

SPAT AT BY HIS MOTHER

The mother of war child
Gerard Perioux also escaped
punishment, but ashamed of her
romance with a German navy
officer, she turned violent
against her 'bastard son'.
"My mother had been in
love with someone considered
the enemy," the 62-year-old
told Reuters. "After the war,
that was seen as a grave mistake,
a sin. And she projected it onto
me."
His mother beat him almost
daily. He slept in a cramped
storage room and his mother
and stepfather forced him to eat
the fleas that infested his body.
As a boy, he could not
understand his mother's
outbursts. Until she died, she
never told him who his real

father was. "It is none of your
business," she would only bark
at him.
Picaper told Reuters that
the treatment of France's war
children had been taboo in his
country for decades.
"The French have a habit of
only celebrating the glorious
moments of history. Napoleon
is portrayed as a benefactor, the
revolution only brought human
rights not one drop of blood,"
he said. "Everyone knows there
is more to it than just that."
Historian Peter
Schoettler says the post-war
politics of General Charles
de Gaulle were based on the
myth that all French had
fought in the anti-Nazi


resistance and on blanking
out the existence of the
collaborationist Vichy
government, established
after France surrendered to
the Germans in 1940.
"It was the dirty little secret
the French kept so they could
come to grips with the wound
that Vichy had caused," said
Schoettler.
While France and Germany
went on to become joint

least they want to be recognized by his nation."

THE SMILING SOLDIER
The Nazis allowed German soldiers to marry women from Norway or the Netherlands
deemed Aryan, but they banned liaisons with the French, considered an inferior race, Picaper
said.
Few French children ever met their father. Many were sent to the eastern front, others died
fighting when the Allies landed.
Perioux was over 50 and had joined the French navy when his children urged him to search for
his father. Learning from a family friend that he was the son of a German soldier came as a shock to
the taxi driver, who does not speak a word of German.
With the help of archives, he tracked down his father Fritz only to suffer the next
disappointment. The man had died years ago and his German children Perioux' siblings did not
want to recognize their French brother.
"It is a very delicate issue. My father's German wife is still alive," Perioux said. He smiled
sadly at a black-and-white photograph showing a young soldier grinning into the camera, the only
evidence he has of his father the German enemy.
"The resemblance to my 38-year-old son is so overwhelming," he said. "When I hug my
son, I feel like I am holding my dad in my arms."


BANK OF GUYANA


It has come to the attention of the Bank of Guyana that some persons and
businesses have been demanding payments in foreign currency for goods
and services provided locally in Guyana. The Bank wishes to remind the
public that the Guyana dollar is the legal tender of the country and should
be used to discharge all monetary obligations except where specific
permission is granted to do otherwise. The attention of the public is drawn
to section 20 (1) of the Bank of Guyana Act 1998, No. 19 of 1998, which
states:

"All monetary obligations or transactions in Guyana
(whether imposed or authorised by a law or otherwise)
shall be deemed to be expressed and recorded, and shall be
settled, in Guyana dollars unless otherwise provided for by
law or agreed between the parties:

Provided that a party shall not agree to
settle, or settle under any agreement, any
monetary obligation or transaction in
Guyana in any currency other than Guyana
dollars (hereafter in this section referred to
as "foreign currency") except with the
permission of the Bank, after consultation
with the Minister'"



The Act stipulates penalties for the contravention of this subsection.

ARIES- You thought this would be a piece of cake, but your plate is still empty.
Getting .what you want means getting in line, and even then you have -no
guarantee that the line is moving. The person you hoped to impress is a hard
nut to crack. The powers that be hit you with new requirements that must be
met. What's going on here? Did you wake up in somebody else's dream?
Patience is your most valuable ally.

TAURUS What's that special note in your voice? Why do you have that look
0 % on your face? Something is going on in your mind or heart, and all your
neighbours are tuning in. They're attracted to you for reasons that nobody can
explain. You stand to benefit from this delicious state of affairs. While you're
,not exactly sure how you did it, you've waited a long time for this moment. At
last people know what you're worth. Be your best and give it your all, but make
sure to leave them hungry for more. You can be so irresistible.
GEMINI -- It's long been fashionable to praise Thoreau's different drummer,
but right now you're annoyed by the counter rhythm that's going on inside your
head. You were looking forward to cooperating and merging with others, not
marching or dancing to your own beat. Forget individuality. Where's the
communion? When you look at your behaviour and influences, you have to
admit that nobody but you is responsible for your current set of challenges.
Change back if you really want to. How hard can it be? People will pull you
back into the fold again once they see how much it means to you.
CANCER Nature takes its course whether you like it or not. Let a relationship
assume its own organic form. Go with the flow instead of attempting to hijack
the party for your own purposes. The more you try to influence things, the
stranger and less comfortable you'll make them. Thrill-seekers often bend
reality out of shape, but when events snap back onto their intended course,
the cost can be more than the diversion was worth. You wouldn't do anything
like that, would you? As it is, your life is rich and busy enough to keep you
amused.
LEO -- You refuse to take what they're giving. This nonsense is a waste of
your time. You expect others to deal with you seriously or not at all. This change
of attitude surprises everyone, maybe even you. You never planned to shift gears
W this fast, but time is suddenly more precious than it's been for a while. You
S have a lot to do, and a closer deadline than you previously thought. Parties
down to business. Anybody who thinks you're a pushover has another thing
coming when you push back
VIRGO -- You know how you feel. Emotions can be elusive, but this time you
put them into a few concise words, or maybe an artistic outpouring that rivals
the great works of literature or drama. This sudden renaissance of self-
i expression opens the door into a day of fun and frolic. Your constant battle
against the annoying has been taking its toll lately, and this is the perfect little
vacation. Explore an untapped skill that you always knew you had. Pick up a
favourite project that's been gathering dust for weeks or months. No one can
l.. stop you from doing what works.
LIBRA -- Disturbing memories come back to the surface, reminding you of
events and obligations that you'd rather forget. Unresolved issues won't go
away until you make at least a sincere gesture toward fixing them. It's all too
easy to push things aside. You've done it before and gained yourself a little
breathing space. But unless you deal with these disruptions one last time,
you obliterate the chances of finishing anything new that you might start. Why
go there again? Surely the future is more interesting than the past. For once, it
would be refreshing to not always know the answer.
SCORPIO -- Trial and error is a crapshoot for people who are missing some
basic pieces of info. You, on the other hand, do surprisingly well. Success
may not be a given, but it's looking more likely than ever. You have an edge
this time because you believe what your senses tell you. You'll take full
advantage of the message, leaving others behind in the dust, scratching their
heads as they try to figure out what it all means. Just be realistic about this.
You're way ahead of the game, but you haven't won yet.
SAGITTARIUS -- Life is good, but there are some things that need to be taken
care of. Take care of your finances, or they just could burst your bubble. Whip
up a little optimism as you move into this more earthly phase. Take your
restless hunger for new experiences, give it a little tweak and hit the ground
running in a furious race for additional revenue. There are creative, practical
ways to approach this.
CAPRICORN Nobody works harder than you do. Therefore nobody has the
right to complain if you feel like slacking off. You're so far ahead of the curve
that your actions will be invisible anyway. Go ahead. Dare to cut loose. Treat
yourself like royalty instead of a bonded servant. Indulge your whims. Feed
your pleasures. Life is too short for self-imposed limits and quotas. If you like
what you find, there's a strong temptation to work it into your daily life. Promise
to add at least a taste of this special flavour to every day.

AQUARIUS Now is the time to launch. a new phase. Don't worry about making
elaborate preparations for something that's destined to happen organically.
Your new career or identity beckons. That distant brilliance is the light of your
there will be some challenges ahead, but you can handle them. Your self-
confidence is more important than what others think. Now that you're familiar
with this feeling, write an unforgettable song about it or commit it to muscle
memory. Your biggest gain will be recognizing a'principle that always applies.

PISCES Family is vital to your well-being. Friends shore up your sense of
identity. Coworkers are sure to validate your accomplishments. Your
experiences are so important that you just have to communicate them right
now. You crave everybody's undivided attention, but you feel self-conscious once
you get it. There's only love in these gazes. Reflect some of the sentiment
back to show that you're getting the message. Paying sincere compliments
will strengthen your bonds with others. They already know what you're telling
them, but they like to hear you say it anyway. You know all about that.


best jugglers I've seen anywhere with five balls. An( 's
great with seven too. He totally amazed me," said Frei.
Freiestimated one out of 10 participants in European juggling conventions come from Cl. oi
Argentina, and German juggling equipment manufacturers have paid Chileans to come to conve w n:
to demonstrate new juggling equipment.
"Chileans are better and there are more of them. You see that at the conventions," said Raul, ie
of Cabeza de Martillo jugglers' shop, who travels all over Latin America selling unicycles, pins, to es
luminous balls and other juggling implements.
Mauricio and Pablo, who partner up for street corner juggling and also perform in the six-me .er
Wicked Jugglers troupe, said rather than learn new juggling tricks they are adding clowning to eir
routine to inspire better tips.
Asked how much he earns during his regular two-hour morning gig at an intersection in a we; !thy
district, clown-suited Mauricio said: "It's a state secret. But it's a lot more than a labourer gets. anc
fewer hours."
So, why are Chileans such good jugglers?
"They practice a lot," said Frei.
Jugglers said the movement has its roots in a social welfare programme and in experimental theatre
groups.
In the mid-1990s, a group of artists and social welfare groups formed El Circo del Mundo, a non
profit organisation that trained dozens of children from poor neighborhoods in circus arts, in a bid tc
keep them out of trouble.
El Circo del Mundo got funding from successful Canadian circus Cirque du Soleil, the government
and elsewhere.
Also in the mid 1990s, the Teatro del Silencio theater group travelled to Europe and came back tc
Chile full of the new theatre-circus movement and spread its ideas.
It was members of Teatro del Silencio who institutionalized Sunday gatherings of jugglers in a parl
behind Santiago's fine arts museum.
The juggling community meets here to practice, hang out, share tips and steal tricks. It'
like a free circus with a park-bench audience of retirees, tourists and passersby.

After pregnancy ailments

Breast infection (Mastitis)


enter those tiny skin lesions
and find their way into the
breast tissue. The germs can also
enter through the tiny canals
(that are in the nipples) and
work their way up into the
breast creating a localised
infection. One must remember
that milk is a good base on
which bacteria can flourish.
Sometimes, we find only one
breast with the Mastitis
condition, but usually more than
one breast is infected.

Cak ed
Breasts'. Today,
,we will examine that ailment
whichh is a common problem
hat develops just after
Delivery of the puppies and as

Even those newborn
)uppies have sharp claws; and
hose nails create small scratches
)n the breasts as the pups press

I should mention that if the
mother has a' generalised
infection, in other words if
germs are circulating in her
blood, then those germs can (via
the blood stream) reach the
breast filled with milk and settle
there and multiply.

SYMPTOMS
The infected breast is
usually hot to the touch
(warmer than usual) and it is
swollen. If your mother dog
is white in colour, it would be
easier to notice the redness
of the infected breastss.
Later the infected breast
develops a reddish blue tinge.
Of course, the
"inflammation" (redness) is
not so visible in a black dog.
The infected and inflamed
breast is painful to the touch.
More generally, the bitch
with Mastitis goes off its food;
it moves away from the pups
which need to be nursed, she
exhibits apathy and sits in some
comer away from her puppies;
at times she is restless; almost
always there is a high fever
(400C plus).
As I said above, the pain
caused by pups nursing an
inflamed breast tends to make
the mother dog move away from
her brood. In some cases, the
maternal instinct is so strong,
that she accommodates the pain
and nurses the pups. That is not
good for the puppies, because
they can be infected by the
same germs that are resident in
their mother's breast, and can
then succumb to a diarrhoea.
Actually the milk changes
colour. Instead of being white (or
yellowish white, if it is the first
milk or colostrum), the infected

milk may be pink or blood
tinged. The consistency is thin
or string like; it may even
contain globules of pus.

TREATMENT
Acute Mastitis should be
treated by a veterinarian.
Routine measures include the
use of appropriate antibiotics
and gentle massage of the
glands, three or four times a
day, with camphorated oil
followed by application of hot
packs and extracting the infected
milk.
The nipple of an infected

gland can be taped. This allows
the puppies to nurse at the
others. If more than one gland
is involved, or if the dam is
really ill and running a high
fever, it is advisable to remove
the puppies altogether and raise
them by hand. If there are three
weeks of age, they can be
weaned.
When milk from an infected
breast returns to a normal
appearance, you may
reintroduce puppies to that
breast.


Enough of this Mastitis
problem for today.
Please adopt one (or more)
of the Robb Street Animal
Shelter's cute puppies and/or

wherewithal to care for them

tips on cooking in Guyana.


I Lamb or hce iyn


Consisting of layers of cooked rice and meat, traditionally biryanis are served on grand
festive occasions when they are always made with generous helpings of ghee and perfumed
with saffron. Nowadays, particularly in restaurant cooking, vegetable ghee, oil and food
colourings are substituted for these rather expensive ingredients. A biryani is a meal in itself, .
although forthose with a healthy appetite, ayoghurt dish or a vegetable side dish may make a
good addition.


FOR THE MEAT
2 Ilb lamb or chicken
1 tsp coriander powder
/2 tsp ground cloves
I tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp Chico Black Pepper
1 tsp chili powder (cayenne)
/' tsp ground cinnamon
tsp cardamom powder

DIRECTIONS

Wash meat and cut into 1-inch cubes; place in bowl with ground spices, yogurt, lemon juice, finely
chopped garlic and salt. If fresh ginger is used, chop finely and add to meat. Slice the onions finely and
fry them in the oil until crisp and golden brown. Remove onions and put two-thirds into the meat mixture.

Soak the rice for one hour before cooking. Fill large pan 3/4 full with water. Put rice, spices and salt into
the water and bring to a boil. Add the rice and remove from heat after six minutes. Drain thoroughly

PARIS (Reuters) The 19th
century German nun whose
blood-soaked visions of
Jesus's death inspired Mel
Gibson's film 'The Passion of
The Christ' will soon be put
on the path to sainthood,
Catholic Church officials
have said.
Anne Catherine Emmerich,
a sickly mystic who lived from
1774 to 1824, has already
reached near cult status among
traditionalist Roman Catholics
for her book that gave Gibson
the grisly details the Gospels
did not provide.
The Vatican says Pope
John Paul II will beatify
Emmerich for her virtuous life,
not her best-selling book, but
the October 3 ceremony will
further publicize her Passion
accounts that some critics
denounce as medieval and anti-
Semitic.
"Beatification will almost


certainly be interpreted as
approval of them," Father John
O'Malley, a church historian,
wrote disapprovingly in the
U.S. Jesuit weekly America.
Bishop Reinhard Lettmann
announced the beatification date
last week in his Muenster
diocese in western Germany
where Emmerich lived.
Beatification is the last step
before sainthood in the Roman
Catholic Church.
Lettmann stressed how the
nun had strengthened others in
their faith despite her own
frailty, a theme dear to John
Paul who struggles on at 84
despite Parkinson's disease.

"AMAZING IMAGES"

Although Gibson said his
blockbuster was true to the
Gospels, he clearly turned to
Emmerich's "The Dolorous
Passion of Our Lord Jesus
Christ" for some striking
scenes.
The episode where Mary


mops up her son's blood after
his sadistic scourging is pure
Emmerich. No Gospel mentions
a hooded devil inciting Jews to
demand Christ's crucifixion or
following him as he carried his
cross.
"Amazing images she
supplied me with stuff I never
would have thought of," Gibson
told an interviewer earlier this
year.
"What you see in her text
is a very visceral Christianity,"
said Diane Apostolos-
Cappadona, art professor at
Georgetown University in
Washington.
"It is very raw and well-
suited to a modem culture with
a high level of violence," she told
Reuters. "It's not something
you want to read to your
children before putting them to
bed."
Another problem with "The
Dolorous Passion" is its anti-
Semitism. Emmerich portrays
the Jews as cruel Christ-killers,
a view the Church renounced as


part of the reforms of the
Second Vatican Council (1962-
1965).
"I would not recommend it
to anyone," O'Malley wrote.
The Vatican suspended an
earlier bid to beatify Emmerich
in 1928 out of concern that
Clemens Brentano, the German
Romantic poet who wrote
down her visions, had
embellished her account with
his own details.
But the case was reopened
in 1973 and approved in July
2003, eight months before
Gibson's film.
"The sales of her book have
gone through the roof," said
Apostolos-Cappadona, who
analyses Gibson's film in the
forthcoming book "Re-viewing
The Passion."
She saw traditionalist
Catholics' enthusiasm for
Emmerich as a reaction to a
fast-changing secular world:
"There is a nostalgia for
certainty from things that
existed before."
