Passports for pets
BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) Owners will be able
to take their cats, dogs and ferrets on holiday abroad
this summer even if they do not have a pet passport as
required under EU law, the European Commission
(news web sites) said Wednesday.
From July 3, animal owners were supposed to carry a
pet passport when crossing European Union (news web
sites) borders, replacing a veterinary certificate that showed
the animal had been vaccinated against rabies.
But many governments in the 25-nation bloc had failed
to provide enough passports for their vets to issue -
sparking fears among animal owners that teair pets wound
not be alowed to travel this sumner.

Despite hiccuos-


DDL's Annual


General Meeting


convenes


successfully


.By Michel Outridge

After inuch deliberation
Friday afternoon, the Board
of Directors of Demerara
Distillers Limited (DDL)
declared opened the
company's 52nd Annual
General Meeting (AGM).
The meeting was
temporarily stalled when
shareholder Mr Christopher
Ram stood up and attempted
to halt the proceedings on
procedural grounds.
However, his motion was
deferred and he was asked to
take his seat by other
shareholders and the Chairman
of the Board of Direbtors.
Mr Ram rose to have three
items on the agenda deferred
until the company honoured an
undertaking given by the Full
Court on Friday morning for
information to be submitted by
DDL.
The motion asked for
among other things, the deferral
of consideration of the
company's accounts, the
Report of the Board of
Directors for-the year ending
December 31, 2003, and that the
declaration of the final dividend
of 23 per cent be free of
company taxes.
The plaintiffs also wanted
the fixing the emoluments for
the company's directors to be
deferred.
However, the Chairman of
DDL Mr Yesu Persaud said that

by acclamation the shareholders
decided that the meeting must
proceed and, therefore, the
procedural motion that Ram
raised was denied.
Mr Ram and the other
plaintiffs had sought disclosures
in the AGM report regarding
details of the company's
directors, which include their
shareholdings and a specific
contingent liability of $1,072
Billion in relation to
consumption tax payable to the
Guyana Revenue Authority
(GRA).
Mr Yesu Persaud told the
gathering at the DDL Diamond
Complex, Plantation Diamond,
East Bank Demerara, that the
company has performed well
with its brands being registered
in 40 countries.
After this disclosure,
shareholder Mr Winston
Tyrell requested that the
foreign profits made by the
company be made known to
shareholders. He commented
that. shareholders were
overwhelmingly
"shortchanged" for
information.
Persaud also assured
shareholders that the company's
interest rates are the best and
that DDL could enter the
international market at very
good prices.
According to the
Chairman's Report, the group of
companies in year 2003 had
good revenues with sales to third
parties increasing by 18 per cent
from $9.1 Billion in 2002 to
$10.7 Billion in 2003.
The report also said that
profits before taxes increased by
8 per cent in 2003.
Three shareholder/
plaintiffs had sought to
prevent DDL from holding,
carrying on or conducting its
52nd AGM at DDL Complex,
Plantation Diamond, EBD or
elsewhere which scheduled
for Friday June 11, 2004 at
4:30 p.m. until the Directors'

THE current crime situation
here was said to be primary
among a number of issues
touched on by President
Bharrat Jagdeo during a
meeting early yesterday with
members of the Guyanese
community in New York and
its environs.
The meeting, which took the
form of a 'business breakfast', was
held at Henry House Banquet and
Catering Hall at the corner of
BedfordAvenue and Lincoln Place,
in Brooklyn.
The President, who has a
number of appointments in the
US before he. is scheduled to
leave for Canada and a trade
and-hivestment exposition
there, is quoted as saying that
both he and Prime Minister
Patrick Manning of Trinidad


and Tobago, were equally
concerned about the high
incidence of crime in their
respective countries.
The two had met last week
in Trinidad and Tobago. during
- a three-day exposition of prime
Guyanese commodities. held
there by the Guyana Office for
Investment (Golnvest).
President Jagdeo is said
to have stressed at yesterday
morning's meeting that the
incidence of kidnapping was
not as rampant here as it was
in Trinidad and Tobago,
which has recorded 76 cases
to date. Guyana has only had
-about two incidents so far, he
reportedly said.
He also touched on the
various commissions that
abound here, whether ethnic or

Gunmen kill


top Iraqi diplomat


By Alistair Lyon

BAGHDAD, (Reuters) Gun-
men killed a top Iraqi diplo-
mat yesterday in the first
high-profile assassination in
Iraq since an interim govern-
ment took over on June 1.
Attackers fatally wounded
Bassam Qubba, the Foreign
Ministry's undersecretary for
multinational affairs and interna-
tional organizations, as he was
on his way to work from his
home in Baghdad's mainly Sunni
Muslim Adhamiya district.
U.S. officials say insurgents,
who often target Iraqis seen as
cooperating with the Americans,
are likely to step up attacks be-
fore Iraq's occupation formally
ends on June 30.
In other lawlessness, kid-
nappers killed a Lebanese citi-
zen, Hussein Ali Alyan, 28, and
two of his Iraqi colleagues, af-
ter seizing them in Baghdad on
Thursday, a Lebanese diplomat
said.
Foreign Ministry sources in
Beirut said the bodies of the


men, who worked for a Lebanese
telecommunications company,
had been dumped between
Falluja and Ramadi, west of the
capital.
But the ordeal of seven
Turks kidnapped in Falluja five
days ago ended in their release
yesterday, a Turkish diplomat
said. The seven employees of a
Turkish contracting firm were in
good health. There was no word
on who had seized them or why.
Anti-U.S. groups have kid-
napped dozens of foreigners in
Iraq since April. Many have been
freed. Apart from Alyan, ain- Ital-
ian and an American hostage are
known to have been killed.

TARGETED KILLING
Iraqi. Foreign Ministry
spokesman Thamer al-Adhami
said Qubba's assailants had over-
taken his car and fired as they
drove past, fatally wounding the
official in the waist.
Qubba, a Shi'ite Muslim,
whs appointed to his post two
months ago. He was a veteran ca-
reer diplomat who served as am-


bassador to China during
Saddam Hussein's Baathist
rule.
A Foreign Ministry state-
ment said the killing bore "the
hallmarks of leftover support-
ers of Saddam Hussein's evil
regime." Foreign Minister
Hoshiyar Zebari said the gov-
ernment "will not be scared or
intimidated by Saddamists."
Last month, a suicide car
bomb killed the head of the
Governing Council in Baghdad,
and another Governing Coun-
cil member survived an ambush
south of the capital.
In other attacks on Satur-
day, a roadside bomb wounded
three Iraqi policemen and a ci-
vilian in Baquba, 65 km (40
miles) north of Baghdad. The
U.S. army said two soldiers
were wounded by a second
roadside bomb outside the-
town.
The new interim govern-
ment, which set security as its
top priority when it was sworn
in on June 1, has won cautious
backing from radical Shi'ite


cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.
"We accept the interim
government if it rejects the
occupation and sets a
timeframe for its with-
drawal," Sheikh Jaber al-
Khafaji said in a Friday ser-
mon delivered on Sadr's be-
half in Kufa, near the holy


city of Najaf.
Iraq's interim prime minis-
ter, lyad Allawi, has promised
tough action against Sadr if his
Mehdi Army militia, which
launched an anti-U.S. revolt in
April, pursues violence.
Sadr had previously denounced
the interim government as a pup-


pet of the United States.
Removing another cloud over
Allawi's government, Kurds have
dropped their threat to leave it in
protest at the failure of this week's
new U.N. resolution to mention
Kurdish autonomy.
Kurdish, Turkmen and
Christian leaders meeting in
the northern city of Arbil on
Friday decided the omission
did not justify quitting the
government, saying the
resolution's mention of fed-
eralism partly met Kurdish
aspirations.
The resolution's U.S.-
British sponsors did not refer
to a transitional law guaran-
teeing Kurdish autonomy to
avoid antagonising Iraq's top
Shi'ite cleric, Ayatollah Ali
al-Sistani, who dislikes the.
law and some of its contents

ROME, (Reuters) Low turn-
out figures for European elec-
tions in the Czech Republic
and Latvia suggested apathy
is a problem in the European
Union's new as well as old
members as three more
states voted yesterday in the
25-nation poll.
By Saturday, seven coun-
tries had voted or begun voting
in the election staggered over
four days, with the rest due to
cast ballots today in the elec-
tions for the European Parlia-
ment. In some states, ruling par-
ties looked set for a drubbing.
In the Czech Republic,
where two days of voting ended
on Saturday, only about one in
four voters turned out, a poll-
ing agency said, an early sign of
sparse interest in the formerly
communist east European
states that joined the EU last

month.
In Latvia' the first ex-Soviet
republic to vote in an EU elec-
tion, less than a third of the elec-
torate had voted by 4 p.m. (1300
GMT), although officials said
they hoped for 60 percent by
close of polls six hours later.
But in Latvia, more than 70
percent of people normally vote.
"I think it's because the EU par-
liament is not very popular," a
spokeswoman for Latvia's elec-
tion commission said of the lower
than usual turnout.
With the enlargement of the
European Union from 15 to 25
members, and a population that
has swelled to 450 million, this
year's European elections are big-
ger than ever.
But hot weather in many
parts. of Europe and the start
of the Euro 2004 soccer tour-
nament may have helped limit
participation, even in former
communist states where West-
ern democracy is a relative
novelty and EU membership a
long-awaited prize.
Early indicatioris from states
that have already voted suggested
some ruling parties could be in
trouble.
In Britain, the ruling Labour
Party came third in local elections


that accompanied the EU vot-
ing on Thursday. The result of
the EU vote has yet to be an-
nounced.
Czechs gave Prime Minis-
ter Vladimir Spidla's Social
Democrats around 10 percent
of the vote, according to poll-
ing agency SC&C. The rightist
opposition Civic Democrats
scored highest with 30 percent
and the little reformed Com-
munists in second place with
17 percent.
"We're halfway through our
mandate, and that always makes
it hard for a party," Spidla said.
BERLUSCONI
CONFIDENT
In Italy, one the six coun-
tries that founded the forerun-
ner of the EU in the 1950s,
Prime Minister Silvio
Berlusconi dismissed fears of a
mid-term rebuke from electors
who began two days of voting
yesterday.
"Defeat? Impossible," he
told reporters after voting in his
home town, Milan. The centre-
right media tycoon aims to get
at least 25 percent of voters to
back his Forza Italia party.
Berlusconi sparked contro-
versy earlier in the week by


sending at least 30 million mo-
bile phone users a text message
reminding them to vote.
He said the messages
were "intended to inform and
help Italians," but failed to
stave off a backlash on Sat-
urday of a deluge of anti-
Berlusconi chain messages.
"PM's office June 12
and 13 DON'T vote
Berlusconi," read one, telling the
recipient to forward the text to
10 friends. Another, purporting
to be from the prime minister
himself, said: "Don't vote for
me...I want to go home."
Constimer groups said the
state's use of text messages was
a breach of privacy and oppo-
sition parties accused the media
magnate prime minister of abus-
ing the new technology.
"(Berlusconi) can sense he
will lose and is playing all his
cards, even the most desperate
ones," former centre-left pre-
mier Massimo D'Alema told La
Repubblica daily.
Voting also took place yes-
terday in the Mediterranean is-
land state of Malta for lawmak-
ers for the Strasbourg-based
legislature. Britain, the Nether-
lands and Ireland had all voted
by Friday.

KINSHASA, (Reuters) The
leader of an apparent coup
attempt in Congo has fled
into a large forest, a spokes-
man for President Joseph
Kabila said yesterday, as or-
dinary people expressed scep-
ticism about the official ver-
sion of events.
Major Eric Lenge, a member
of Kabila's personal guard, es-
caped from the capital Kinshasa
on Friday after briefly taking
over state radio and declaring
himself in control. The incident
was 'the second apparent effort -
to seize power in three months.
Gunshots and artillery fire
were heard on Friday in
Kinshasa but life had returned
to normal yesterday..
Officials in the vast central
African country, of more than
50 million people initially said
the army had surrounded Lenge
at the airport. But they later said
troops were chasing him as he
headed southwest into the prov-
ince of Bas Congo.
"We have not yet got our
hands on him. He abandoned his
vehicles and he is hiding in a for-
est in Bas Congo," presidential
spokesman Kudura Kasongo
said on Saturday.
"If he is there, we will
eventually get him as he will
have to come out and get
something to eat."
The apparent ease with
which Lenge and only a small
band of followers managed to
escape fuelled doubts on the

streets of Kinshasa about the
whole incident.
Some suggested it had been
a ploy by Kabila's camp, to give
him an excuse to prolong the
transition period to elections due
next year following the end of a
five-year civil war.
COUP OR SETUP?
"If these people were re-
ally the enemy, we don't under-
stand how they managed to take
a radio station so easily and
then run around town for a few
hours before escaping to the
west of the country," said busi-
nessman Emmanuel Nzangi.
"What happened yesterday
was not an attempted coup -
it was a setup," said Nancy
Mampoya, a 27-year-old sand-
wich maker on Avenue 30 Juin,
Kinshasa's bustling main thor-
oughfare.
"We heard a lot of shooting,
but where are the dead?"
In an television and radio
address on Friday night, Kabila
praised security forces for
swiftly ending the insurrection
without loss of life or significant
property damage.
"I want to reassure the
population, especially the
people in the capital, that the
situation is under control," he
said.
Friday's events added to
concerns hanging over the
country prompted by recent
fighting in the mineral-rich
east and uncertainty over the
stability of the transitional
government.

Baker quits


Western Sahara role


FORMER US Secretary of
State James Baker has re-
signed after seven years as
United Nations mediator in
the long-running conflict in
Western Sahara.
The territory has been at
the centre of a bitter dispute
since former colonial power
Spain pulled out in 1975, and
neighboring Morocco invaded
it.
The Algerian-backed
Polisario Front has been seek-
ing independence since 1976..
Mr Baker is reported to
have grown increasingly frus-
trated over his failure to broker
an agreement.
His latest proposal was to
make Western Sahara a semi-au-
tonomous part of Morocco for
four to five years, followed by
a referendum allowing residents
to choose between indepen-
dence, continued semi-au-
tonomy or integration with
Morocco.
This plan was rejected by
Morocco, which refused to ac-
cept any loss of sovereignty
over the area.
The vast north-west Afri-
can territory is rich in phos-
phates and is also believed to
have offshore oil reserves.
UN Secretary General Kofi
Annan is expected to formally
announce Mr Baker's departure
to the UN Security Council next
week.
The official UN envoy for
Western Sahara, Alvaro de Soto,
will take over his work, a UN


official told French news agency
AFP. Mr Baker was a personal
envoy of Mr Annan.
'GREAT LOSS'
Ahmed Boukhari, a repre-
sentative of the Polisario Front,
described Mr Baker's resigna-
tion as a serious setback to UN
attempts to resolve the Western
Sahara issue.
"It's a great loss for the
peace effort, but he has.left be-
hind as his legacy a clear peace
plan based on self-determination
for the people of Western Sa-
hara," he said.
Morocco's ambassador to
the UN, Mohamed Bennouna,
told Reuters news agency: "We
thank him for all his efforts and
especially for his patience."
Algeria's ambassador to the


UN, Abdallah Baali, said he was
disappointed Mr Baker was
stepping down.
"We have been impressed
by his strong personality, his
patience, his perseverance and
his capability. He came up with
very creative ideas and his last
plan received a favourable recep-
tion from the Security Council."
The UN has spent more
than $600m on peacekeeping ef-
forts in Western Sahara as it has
attempted to resolve the issue
over the last 13 years.
Mr Baker was Secretary of
State under the first President
George Bush.
He served in President
Reagan's administration as
chief of staff and then Secre-
tary of the Treasury. (BBC
News).

TEHRAN, (Reuters) Iran yes-
terday rejected European de-
mands that it freeze additional
parts of its atomic programme,
saying it would push on with
plans to build a heavy-water
reactor.
"We will not accept any
new obligation," Foreign
Minister Kamal Kharrazi told
a news conference. "If any-
one asks us to give up Isfahan
industries to change
yellowcake into uranium
hexafluoride gas or to give up
heavy-water facilities in Arak,
we cannot accept such an ex-
tra demand that is contradic-
tory to our legal rights."
Yellowcake is processed ura-
nium ore, mined near the central
desert city of Yazd. Uranium
hexafluoride gas is pumped into
centrifuges that enrich uranium
by spinning it.
The United States says Iran
is using its programme as a

Canada's ruling Liberals facing prospect

Uo | defeat UJn 2 election to get his own ma


OTTAWA, (Reuters) -
Canada's ruling Liberals,
facing the prospect of defeat
in the June 28 election, re-
ceived more bad news yester-
day with a poll showing they
would be crushed in the im-
portant French-speaking
province of Quebec.
At.the start of the year, the
Liberals of Prime Minister Paul
Martin predicted they would
pick up most of the 75 parlia-
mentary seats in Quebec,
Canada's second-most popu-


lous province, but the party's
fortunes were hurt by a patron-
age scandal that erupted in Feb-
ruary.
The CROP poll for La
Presse and Le Soleil newspapers
showed the Liberals at 32 per-
cent in Quebec, compared with
44 percent for the separatist
Bloc Quebecois. CROP said that
meant the Bloc could pick up
54 seats in Quebec.
"There is a profound
(voter) unhappiness which is


deepening. The Liberals are re-
ally in free fall," CROP Vice
President Claude Gauthier told
Le Soleil.
A federal poll released on
Friday showed that for the first
time in more than a decade, the
Liberals were trailing the oppo-
sition Conservatives of Stephen
Harper.
The Liberals have held
power since 1993. Martin
took office from fellow Lib-
eral Jean Chretien last De-


rly
ian-


date despite warnings he was
in trouble in the polls.
Analysts and commentators
widely agree Martin has run an
unimpressive campaign so far
and that his attempts to brand
Harper as a right-wing extrem-
ist have failed.
Martin, who admitted on
Friday he could lose the elec-
tion, appeared briefly in Ot-
tawa on Saturday morning to
shake the hands of voters in
the city's central market but
did not speak to reporters.


nuclear watchdog, the Inter-
national Atomic Energy
Agency (IAEA).
The document, to be de-
bated at an IAEA board meet-
ing starting on Monday,
asked Iran to freeze its op-
eration of a uranium conver-
sion facility near Isfahan and
reverse its decision to con-
struct a heavy-water reactor
near the central industrial city
of Arak.
Kharrazi said:he hoped
IAEA board members would re-
sist U.S. pressure and not only
soften the resolution but also
drop Iran's case.
"It is not fair that Iran's case
remains, on the agenda for two
minor issues," he said.
Iran must explain how
traces of bomb-grade uranium
came to be found on compo-
nents, and what it plans to do
with advanced uranium-en-
riching centrifuges it initially
failed to declare.
The heavy-water reactor
Tehran has decided to build
would be capable of produc-
ing weapons-usable pluto-
nium. Kharrazi said the reac-
tor was still being designed
and he did not know when
construction work would
start.

DEMANDS

new.
The United Nations does
not define Isfahan and Arak as
enrichment sites, but European
diplomats have argued that the
gas pumped into centrifuges is
integral to the enrichment pro-
cess.
Low-enriched uranium can
be used in nuclear power sta-
tions such as the one Iran is
building at Bushehr on its
south coast, but if enriched
further it can be deployed in
warheads.
If Iran cannot resolve its
nuclear wrangle with the IAEA,
it can be referred to the U.N.
Security Council, which could
impose sanctions on it.
Hossein Shariatmadari, an
influential hardline newspa-
per editor, appointed directly
by Supreme Leader Ayatollah
Ali Khamenei, said Iran
should do away with U.N.
interference and follow North
Korea's lead.
"Finally the only logical
way is to pull out of the Non-
Proliferation Treaty," he
wrote in the Kayhan newspa-
per.

Crimes against


children

An Editorial Viewpoint by Rickey Singh

THERE IS something very encouraging about the outcries,
across political, ethnic and class boundaries in Guyana, over
the deeply disturbing case involving a 13-year-old girl and
businessman Reeaz Khan.
Details of the case, currently before the Court and, therefore,
to be treated with restraint, have clearly touched a chord in this
society above the burden of political garbage that too often
litters various facets of life in this society.
The case reminds us all how an anachronistic, colonial-
inherited law, could provide shelter for sexual exploitation and
even marriage without consent of little girls, just 12 or 13 years
of age.
In a thoughtful statement to the local media that came amid
some very inconsiderate reporting and comments the Guyana
Human Rights Association (GHRA) made the poignant
observation:
"For girl children to be treated as a commodity by a male-
dominated society demonstrates, in the most vivid manner, how
little has changed since slavery and indentureship...While the
Reeaz Khan case is shocking the nation, abduction with the aim
of marriage is by no means exceptional or isolated..."


All concerned, no less the Government itself, have been
shocked sufficiently to awake from their slumber to move with
much needed haste to effect changes in the law.
Enactment, when it happens is one thing, enforcement is
quite another. It 'must be routinely done, in every warranted
example, to ensure'that sexual exploitation of children and the
horrible culture of forced marriage, or marriage without
consent, will invite severe punishment consistent with the
norms of a civifised society.
But the problems are wider. Apart from sex with under-
aged girls and marriage without consent, crimes of rape and of
incest involving children are said to be rampant in this and
other Caribbean societies.

BURDEN OF PROOF
Too many often escape lawful punishment for rape and
incest because the burden of proof is more compelling on the
victims than the perpetrators. Ask the more clever,
"successful" lawyers who quickly excuse themselves behind
"lawyer-client privilege".
Not only must ambiguous and archaic laws be changed, in
this and every Caribbean society that. claims to be opposed to
sexual exploitation. The importance of the welfare of children,
a commitment to the rights of women and the upholding of
fundamental family values must also be kept under constant
review.
The Police service must be so structured as to have a
special unit or division that deals specifically with cases of
sex involving under-aged children; rape and incest, and the
lawmen must work with the Ministries of Education and Social.
Security to help isensitise children and parents on ways of
becoming more vigilant in exposing such crimes through
functioning mechanisms.
Children across the nation must be educated at home and
at school and also via public service programmes prepared by


law enforcing agencies as well as civic organizations on methods
of overcoming the fear factor that is often a significant hurdle
in reporting cases of rape and incest. I
In these days of the HIV/AIDS pandemic such initiatives
become all the more relevant.
Those convicted of abduction for sex, or for rape andinc'et
must be fully exposed by the'media and also be required to
report to the Police on changes of residence and place of work:-
even after paying the penalty for their crimes, in accordAn'dr
with a new approach to cleanse the society from such predators.
Any imaginative, coordinated and systematic
programme, involving the law enforcing agencies and civic
organizations, designed to effectively curb crimes of rape,
incest, sexual and other forms of exploitation of children,
as well as violence against women-an ongoing brutish,
cowardly offence involving men of all races and classes--
could inspire a culture in social behaviour that benefits
the society as a whole.

Colin Powell and the-USA squeeze on CARICOM


By Rickey Singh:

WHEN American Secretary
of State Colin Powell an-
nounces, as is expected, that
he would not be serving in
another Bush administration
- should there, be one after
the coming November presi-
dential poll a proper as-
sessment may have to be
made of the cooperation and
.support he actually provided
the Caribbean Community
(CARICOM) during his


President George W. Bush
term in office.
For all the spins out of
Washington and expedient ver-
bal gloss that occasionally flow
from some CARICOM capitals
- including Kingston,
Georgetown, Bridgetown and
Port-of-Spain an objective as-
sessment may well establish
that tensions in USA-Carib-
bean relations and the squeeze
on some Community states by
Washington on specific issues,
have never been as severe as
under the current Republican
administration of George W.
Bush.
Do not expect governments
even in Guyana or Jamaica -'
militant as they sometimes ap-
pear to officially and openly
concur with my assumption,
given the reality of economic
and other forms of assistance
they have already received from
Washington, or those that may
be in the pipeline.
However, whether we are
-alking about the "Washington
squeeze" resulting from, for in-


stance, disagreements over
CARICOM's original collective
stand against the US-led pre-
emptive war on Iraq; the forced
interruption of constitutional gov-
ernance in Haiti, in which the USA
played a key role; or in defence
of efforts to undermine this
region's principled'support for
the jurisdiction of the Interna-
tional Criminal Court (ICC), we
are dealing with tension in rela-
tions between 'Uncle Sam' and
so-called 'third border' cousins of
this region..
So far as Mr Powell is con-
cerned, precious few have been
the scheduled, structured meet-
ings with CARICOM leaders.or
at Foreign Ministers level,
other than the one that briefly
took place at a bristling session
with Community Foreign Min-
isters.
There have, of course, been
the occasional informal bi-laterals
or meetings on the "margins" of
hemispheric/international fora be-
tween Powell and CARICOM
ministers and ambassadors.
We are small and we know
our place when it comes to big
league politics. Yet, in geopoliti-
cal terms, we are also conscious


and re-read more than what is
between the lines, especially
when it involves relations be-
tween a group of small.na-
tions, like ours, and the world's
sole superpower.

HOW 'FRUITFUL?
Therefore, when I received
a press statement from the
Caribbean Community Secre-
tariat last Tuesday titled
"Fruitful talks between Carib-
bean Foreign Ministers and US
Secretary of State", I was quite
anxious to learn what hew and
positive development had
taken place, knowing how un-
helpful Secretary Powell has
been to our Community.
Going through the eight-
paragraph statement, I discov-
ered that it spoke about a meet-
ing on "the margins" of the
34th General Assembly of the
Organisation of American
States (OAS) that concluded in
Quito, Ecuador on June 7.
A meeting on "the mar-
gins" of any such international
event is, at best, informal and
not structured for any serious
dialogue. There was no joint
statement and the CARICOM


'We are small and we know our place when it
comes to big league politics. Yet, in geopolitical
terms, we are also conscious that the important
bridge we comprise as a small region between
the two Americas remains very relevant for
hemispheric security, especially in these days
of international terrorism.'


that the important bridge we com-
prise as a small region between
the two Americas remains very
relevant for hemispheric security,
especially in these days of inter-
national terrorism.
We also remain a region that
places high priority on sustained
good relations with the American
people and whichever administra-
tion functions on their behalf in
Washington.
However, in the language of
diplomacy, one often has to read


Secretariat's press release was
rather economical when it
comes to. shedding light on
what really could be identified
as being "fruitful" or produc-
tive, from the Comniunity's
perspective.
Perhaps either the
chairperson of CARICOM's
Council for Foreign and
Community Relations
(COFCOR), Foreign Minis-
ter Billie Miller of Barba-
dos, or current CARICOM


chairman, Prime Minister
Baldwin Spencer of Antigua
and Barbuda having been
briefed by his own Foreign
Minister Harold Lovell -:
. could help us to appre-
ciate how really "fruit-
ful" was the meeting
with Powell, assuming
it was more than a
photo-opportunity.
On two very sensi-
tive issues, the interrup-
tion of constitutional
governance in Haiti while.
Jean-Bertrand Aristide
was President, and the
extradition exemption demanded
by Washington for US nation-
als who may be wanted -t face. -
prosecution by thelIntenmalionhal
Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes
committed, Secretary Powell is .
not known to have done any-
thing to help ease the constant
pressures that a number of
.CARICOM governments have
had to endure from the Bush
administration.
When he became the first
Black American to be US Sec-
retary of State, the entire Car-
ibbean region and the Caribbean
Diaspora shared the historic
moment for this American son
of Jamaican roots.
He was to prove unhelpful
to CARICOM in short time af-
ter the, initial happy,
backslapping and hands-pump-
ing meetings and photo oppor-
tunities. A notable example
would be his virtual somersault
on a CARICOM initiative on
the Haitian crisis while Aristide
was still in office.

THE SOMERSAULT
Having endorsed the initia-
tive, that included firm demands
on both Aristide and the oppo-
sition forces, as well as sending
of a peace-keeping military force
to Haiti, the US administration,
with Powell very much on
board, walked away from it in
favour of a plan that kept
CARICOM in the dark right up
to the sudden departure by
Aristide from power on Febru-
ary 29 that coincided with a


US-led military force being
rushed to Haiti.
Nor is Powell known to
have helped, when needed, in
getting his boss to extend a


"presidential national interest
waiver" to CARICOM states in
relation to Article 98-of the ICG -
oi e -raditi5i-~of US natioiials'
when required to face prosecu-
tion.
-On July 1, 2003, President
Bush enforced his ultimatum
that required of six CARICOM
states to sign on to Article 98,
or be cut off from any US mili-
tary assistance.
Three of those six Antigua
and Barbuda, Belize and
Dominica have since been
'pressurised' into jumping ship.
Barbados, St.Vincent and the
Grenadines and Trinidad and
Tobago continue, so far, to


stand firm.
Some other member states,
including Jamaica, have either
signed but not ratified the Rome
Treaty governing the jurisdic-
tion of the ICC, while a few
have neither signed nor ratified


the Treaty. Consequently, it is
of academic interest whether
they may or may not sign the
"non-surrender" Article 98, as
the Bush administration wants.


Guyana has already signalled its
intention to sign.
- In relation to CARICOM's ini-
fiative to get the OAS to probe the
forced interruption of constitutional
governance in Haiti, and the way
forward for democratic elections
under an interim regime in Port-au-
Prince, the US State Department,
under Powell's leadership, fought to
the last minute in Ecuador last
week to dilute the original draft reso-
lution seeking to invoke Article 20
of the OAS Democratic Charter.
Finally, after suffering se-
rious language brutality through
"amendments", an 18-point.
resolution was approved by
S"consensus" (sic). It is now be-
ing defended in some regional
quarters as the "best that could
be achieved in the circum-
stances".
Is Mr Powell pleased with
himself for getting some nations
to genuflect at the OAS General
Assembly?
In the interest of knowing
what we have really gained as
a Community after three
months of efforts for an inde-
pendent investigation into
the circumstances of
Aristide's sudden departure
. from office it may well be
necessary for a comparison to
be made between the
CARICOM resolution on the
Haitian crisis situation, as
adopted by the OAS Perma-
nent Council in Washington
on February 26, and that ap-
proved at last week's General
Assembly in Quito.

1Do not expect a Cadillac lifestyle



in a Volkswagen economy':



Public Service not neglected


-Dr Nanda Gopaul

A GINA Feature The Public
Service may not offer one of
the most lucrative jobs, but it
certainly has benefits.
Government has come in for
severe criticism from the
Guyana Public Service Union
(GPSU) alleging that the
sector has deteriorated under
the current Administration.
These criticisms were
particularly heightened by
Union President Patrick Yarde
recently. The GPSU is
celebrating 81 years of
existence, but as Head of the
Public Service Dr. Nanda
Kishore Gopaul explained
during an interview, real wages
and working conditions have
never been better.
- Tracing the pattern of-
public service development can
best be explained by the cliche,
" You cannot expect a Cadillac
lifestyle in a Volkswagen
economy," Gopaul said.
Wages in Guyana had
significantly declined and had
been seriously undermined
during-the 1970s and it is
against this background that

pr(


progress can be talked about
today.
The People's Progressive
Party/Civic assumed Office in
1992 and at that time the
minimum wage of a public
servant in Guyana was $3137.
The minimum wage in Guyana
at present is $22,099.
The GPSU membership has
benefited tremendously. in
recent years from a deliberate
policy on the part of the
Government to reverse the
steady decline in real public
sector wages brought about by
the policies of the previous
Government.
At the beginning of 1989,
the minimum wage in the public
sector.was $595 or US$59.50
under the fixed exchange rate
regime that obtained at that
time. The rapid deterioration in
the official exchange rate saw
the minimum wage fall to
US$25.98 by the end. of 1990.
The minimum wage declined in
1991 to US$13.78. This grossly
depleted minimum wage of
public servants was restored in
1992 to US$25.08.
The wages as they are now
also include substantial increases


of nearly 65 per cent for the
years 1999 and 2000.
As explained by Dr.
Gopaul, the positive effects of
the steady increases in
nominal public sector wages
on the disposable incomes of
public servants is further
consolidated by the recent
success in bringing inflation
under control. He noted that
annual inflation has been
reined in from consistent
double-digit levels in the
1980s to consistent single-
digit levels since 1992. In
2001, the inflation rate
through prudent
management of the economy
was restricted to 2.6 per cent.
Inflation between 1999 and
2003 rose by 31.8 per cent,
while there was economic
growth over that same period
of about 4.4 per cent, with.
negative growth rates on two
occasions only.. Wage
increases for that period was
73.22 per cent, marking a
tremendous increase in real
terms.
According to Dr. Gopaul,
the combination of rapid and
steady increases in nominal


relations and splendid

public sector wages, and success
in restraining inflation and
deterioration in the exchange
rate has resulted in public
servants being decidedly better
off, relative to their status in the
1980s and early 1990s. These
policies and increases
implemented by Government
debunk the. claim of
discrimination against public
servants.
Responding to claims by
the Guyana Public Service
Union that the sector has
reached rock bottom under this
Administration, Dr. Gopaul
noted that real wages and
working conditions of public
servants have consistently
increased. He referred to the
1980s when Professor Clive
Thomas said that 'Never in the
history of the Guyanese
workers, was there that. extent
of devastation to their real
wages.' The Working People's
alliance, an opposition political
party described the 1980 Budget
as 'draconian.'
The Public Service Head
also noted that workers'
allowances have improved over
the years. There have also been
technological advances within
the public sector that make life


easier for employees. With the
pending implementation of the
Pubic Sector Modernisation
Programme between
Government and the Inter-
American Development Bank,
the public sector will be further
improved.
Public Servants benefits
vary depending on the
categories. However the
allowances paid to them are
for motor car; meals;
overtime; away from base;
one month leave passage;
annual leave ranging from
14-42 days; duty free
concessions for public
servants with travelling posts;
sick leave entitlement, which
is being abused by many
public servants and special
leave to attend to personal
business and academic
commitments. Public Servants
also work less than the average
working week of 40 hours 37
1/2 hours per week. They also
work up to 15:30 on Fridays.
Given the volatility of the
country' economy, as in any
developing country,
Government can offer super
salaries to public servants, but
the current package can contest
remuneration at some private


sector agencies.
The danger also of
significantly raising wages and
creating expenditure that the
economy cannot afford is
causing erosion of real wages, as
the currency would lose its
value.
Even though public servants
may work hard and deserve high
increases, there are other social
factors that could hamper this,
as Government cannot borrow
money to pay-wages.
Dr. Gopaul acknowledged
that there is room for
improvement, but noted that
this had to be incremental in
relation to the country's
economy. He also commended
hardworking public servants.
The traditional public
service comprised some 30,000
employees. However many
agencies have been given semi-
autonomous status by the
Administration and many
workers are now employed on
a contractual basis. This has
resulted in a public service
population of 10,000, However,
Government has not retrenched
public servants.

servants minimum wage

Touring the Tabar an



unforgettable experience

-But dozens of persons disappointed at being turned away


9:30 hrs to 13:30 hrs yesterday.
However, after the closing time,
many Guyanese were still left
standing outside without any
hope of going onboard the
vessel, while soldiers of the
Guyana Defence Force (GDF)
tried to maintain some level of
control over the angry crowd.
At one stage, as a result of
crowd pushing, the soldiers
were forced to shut the gate,


Tour guide Drigendra Kumar found time to pose with these
three children, while taking them around the ship.

The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company wishes to
notify the general public that there will be road closures at the
junction of Mandela Avenue and the Houston Bypass from

causing at least-one person to be
injured.
Although told by the
soldiers that the gate was closed,
many persons stood still and
refused to move, claiming that
they must go in.
Those who were able to
go onboard ship described it
as "an unforgettable
experience".
In very small numbers,
members of the public were
allowed a tour of the battleship
with a guide who could speak
very little English, making it
difficult for persons to
understand what was being
explained.
Free medical check-ups
were also given to members of
the public, who were fortunate
enough to board the ship
yesterday.
After a 25-minute tour of
torpedoes, anti-submarines,
anti-aircraft devices and various
heavy artillery, those visitors
were guided off the vessel and
another tour was begun. All the
while, dozens of other could-be
visitors waited hopefully for
their turn.
The Tabar (Battle Axe) is a
multi-purpose ship that was
built at a shipyard in St.
Petersburg, Russia and
commissioned at Baltiysk in
Kalimingrad on April 13 this
year.
The modem Man-of-War is
captained by AG Thapliyal and
has a crew of 265 including 30
officers.
It weighs 4,000 tons, is 125
metres in length, 15 metres wide
and has a top speed of over 30
knots.
The Tabar's artillery
includes long-range anti-ship
and anti-surface torpedoes and
a 100 mm caliber "gun for
onshore/inland targets.
These are complemented
by a high-tech sensors and
control systems developed
with cutting-edge
technologies.

Two evenings of youth theatre atthelationatl Cultural Centre


TWO evenings of Youth The-
atre are on the bill at the Na-
tional Cultural Centre today
and tomorrow, the latest pro-
ductions coming out of work-
shops run by VSO Jennifer
Davis of the Department of
Culture, Youth and Sport.
Ms. Davis is enthusiastic
about these shows, as she works
to draw from the young players
talent that is there, waiting to be
channelled and nurtured and


bloom. And it's all happening,
she said in an interview at her
NCC office.
'There is so much talent
among Guyana's young people,"
she affirms, "and it is tragic that
the theatre here is beset by in-
sufficient serious producers and
playwrights."
As far as she can tell, there
is a real interest in theatre here,
but this is not cultivated as it
should be. Training is inadequate


and while some feel that there
are not enough resources, Ms.
Davis attributes the problems to
theatre people who are mostly
not serious. They just do some-
thing for the moment, nothing
serious, and one person writes
and directs and sometimes acts


in the play as well, and this is a
sure recipe for mediocrity.
"Theatre is a collaborative
art," Davis, and the more input
the better." -
There is not enough objec-
tivity in a play written and di-
rected and enacted by the same


person.
The two shows at the Cul-
tural Centre tonight and to-
morrow are being staged by a
theatre group started last Feb-
ruary, and feature bits and
pieces from established plays
and from skits written by the


producers. These include
snatches from Macbeth,
Romeo and Juliet, Antigone,
Jane Eyre and Sleepy Hollow,
and skits on Teenaged Preg-
nancy, Guyanese Folk,
Through Adolescent Eyes and
Street Children. (R.O.)


'An Odyssey in

Guyanese Poetry'

begins today
'An Odyssey in Guyanese Poetry', featuring readings
from the works of Guyanese poets, and sponsored by the
Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, comes off at the
Umana Yana, Kingston on Monday, Wednesday and Fri-
day of this week.
Coordinated by Pitamber Persaud, the readings will feature the
works of Martin Carter, Laxhmi Kallicharan, A.J. Seymour, Sheik
Sadeek, Rajkumari Singh, Wordsworth McAndrew, Ian McDonald
and John Agard.
Presenters include Deryck Bernard, Seeta
Mohamed, Leon Saul, Elfrieda Bissember, Sherod
Duncan, Ian McDonald and Francis Quamina Farrier.

NFL calls for inquiry


into Rodney's death

-Laments that 24 years after his death,

the historian's killers are still free


NATIONAL Front Alliance in
a press statement yesterday
called on the Government of
Guyana to appoint a Commis-
sion of Inquiry into the cir-
cumstances surrounding the
assassination of Walter
Rodney and bring to justice
those found responsible.
Today marks the 24 anniver-
sary of Dr Rodney's death, and
according to the release, his kill-
ers are still free.
The release stated that
Rodney was assassinated on


June 13, 1980 by the
People's National Congress
dictatorship because he
fought to bring democracy to
"our troubled land".
The National Front Alli-
ance said that although it is
supportive of the day in recog-
nition of his memory, the anni-
versary should not be allowed
to become an annual exercise of
curtsying to memories, de-
signed to lessen the conscience
of those who have become quite
comfortable with the giving of


'lip service' to him.
The release also claimed'
that the failure of the Gov-
ernment to prosecute those
responsible for Rodney's
death shows their dislike of
the world-renowned histo-
rian.
National Front Alliance also
made it clear that no longer
would the body tolerate lip ser-
vice from the administrative
system.
"It was Rodney, who dem-
onstrated the way to defeat


the People's National Con-
gress dictatorship, which had
reduced all apposition to its
rule to whimpering kittens.
Today; that feline state of
comfort best describes the
main beneficiaries of
Rodney's sacrifice. Their re-
luctance to prosecute indi-
cates the contempt they re-
ally have for this great man
and the ideas of self-emanci-
pation he bequeathed to the
nation," the NFL release
noted.

Human Services and Social Se-
curity of the Government of

states and communities around
the World and within the Carib-
bean, and what are the tools and

comprehensive response within
Guyana.'

fairs, Immigration, Justice,

AYThe PPP remembersE,Dr Walter Rodney


The PPP remembers Dr Walter Rodney


JUNEI13 2 1 marks 24 years
ie the assassination of Dr.
Walter Rodney; who at the
time of his death was the
leader of thpe Working
.People's Alliance (WPA), the
"People's Progressive Party
(PPP) said in a release yester-
day.
"Dr. Rodney died in a mys-
terious explosion, which was
widely linked to the People's
National Congress. The PNC


ruled the country with an iron
fist and openly boasted of its
capacity to inflict terror on any-
one who dared to oppose its
draconian rule. :
"Not only was the PNC
,intolerant of criticism of its
,brutal rule, but also practised
the worse form of state-spon-
sored terrorism," which saw
the killing and torturing of
political opponents on a scale
'never seen before.
"The PPP recalls those
dark days in our history,
when, suppression of free-
doms and denial of fundamen-
tal rights were the order of the
day;. Such was the extent of
,the! suppression that leading
academics of the caliber or Dr.
.Walter Rodney was denied
,appointment at the Univer-
sity of Guyana, despite being
eminently qualified for the
jAb.


"In the case of Dr. Rodney,
he was a world-renowned histo-
rian, having taught in several uni-
versities in Africa, Europe and
other parts of the world. Despite
being recommended for a teach-
ing job by the Appointments
Committee of the University of
Guyana, the University Coun-
cil, which at the time was domi-
nated by the PNC, refused to
ratify his appointment.
"The deaths of Dr. Rodney,


Fr. Darke and many others
were the work of a well coor-
dinated plot by the then rul"-
ing party carried out in part
by the Aqua Platoon, headed
by a leading PNC activist, who
is still prominent today. Its
purpose was to stifle political
opposition to its repressive
rule, even if it meant the
physical assassination of per-
sons it considered a threat to
its undemocratic rule.
"Were this not the case,
the PNC would not have stub-
bornly refused to entertain
calls for an independent in-
quiry into the circumstances,
which led to the assassination
of Dr Rodney. Instead the al-
leged assassin was allowed
safe heaven in another coun-
try.
"The list of victims of
state-sponsored terrorism.un-
der the PNC is indeed long.

Electricity supply to

Kabakaburi among

new development

projects

TCHAIRMAN of Region Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam), Mr Alli
:Baksh has announced some major development projects,
including electricity supply to residents of Kabakaburi in
SUpper Pomeroon this year.
; He told the Chronicle the Amerindian community, situated
.80 miles South along Pomeroon River, has a large population and
the power generation there would boost cottage industries, facili-
tate,information technology and link the settlement to the internet,
telephone and other communication channels.
i"'! Baksh also disclosed that rehabilitation of Lilydale Primary
School building in Lower Pomeroon will start shortly, with fund-
inqigrough the Social Impact Amelioration Programme (SIMAP).
SAnother announcement by Baksh is that three miles of farm
to niarket road will be built at Somerset and Berks on Essequibo
SCoast to aid greater agricultural production.
He said the roadway will be constructed with sand, loam
'and crusher run and would be funded by the Poor Rural
Community Support Services Programme (PRCSSP).

Under the "our steel is
sharper" posture by the
PNC, scores of opposition
activists were jailed, beaten
and tortured and in a number
of instances, even killed. It is
unfortunate that some of
those who were closely asso-


ciated with Dr. Rodney dur-
ing those dark years are to-
day appearing on the plat-
form of their erstwhile op-
pressors. 'Whether this repre-
sents a case of selective am-,
nesia or a betrayal of the revo-
lutionary ideas of their slain.


leader remains to be seen.
"The PPP salutes the
memory of Dr Walter Rodney
and calls on all Guyanese to
spare a moment to reflect on
all-those, who fell victims at
the hands of an oppressive
YNC regime. The return to


democracy in October 1992
marks a break with the au-
thoritarian past and must be-
come irreversible if the demo-
cratic gains of the Guyanese
people are to be preserved and
consolidated," the PPP state-
ment concluded.

Canada's too-friendly killer


whale to be captured


By Allan Dowd
VANCOUVER, British Co-
lumbia (Reuters) A lonely
killer whale on Canada's Pa-
cific coast, whose search for
companionship has become a
danger to boats and float
planes, and himself, will be
captured next week so he can
be reunited with his family
pod, officials said on Thurs-
day.
Scientist said it was clear.
the one-ton whale, nicknamed
Luna, would not be able to link
up with the pod on his own, so
he will have to be trucked to the
southern tip of Vancouver Is-
land where the other orcas nor-
mally spend the summer.
Luna has been swimming
alone in a bay on western


Vancouver Island since 2001,
but as human activity in the area
picked with the approach of
summer, he was having run-ins
with boats and floatplanes in an
apparent search for companion-
ship.
Luna nearly collided with a
landing floatplane two days ago,
an accident that could have
killed both the whale and the
people on the plane, officials
said.
"For Luna's sake, we have
to move now," said John Night-
ingale, director of the Vancouver
Aquarium.
Orcas, or killer whales,
normally spend their entire
lives with other members of
their pod. Scientists do not
know if Luna, whose official
designation is L98, became


lost or was kicked out of the
family unit.
Canada and the United
States agreed late last year to
move Luna, but had to wait un-
til L-pod returned to the Strait
of Juan de Fuca, where it
spends the summer swimming in
both U.S. and Canadian waters.
Scientists plan to use a boat
that Luna likes to follow to lure
him into a floating net pen be-
ing constructed off the Village
of Gold River.
"He's been showing a lot of
interest in the last few days. The
crews have been setting up the
pen and he's been helping
them," Nightingale noted.
Luna will undergo several
days of medical tests before
he is trucked in a special
holding tank to Pedder Bay,


west of Victoria, and 200 km
(120 miles) southeast of
where he is now. The road
trip is expected to take about
12 hours.
Luna will stay in a pen in
Pedder Bay until L-pod swims
into the area and he makes vo-
cal contact. Scientist admit they
do not know if the pod will ac-
cept-him back since it is unclear
how he became separated.
Two years ago, experts
successfully reunited Springer, a
sick and orphaned juvenile orca
found in Puget Sound near Se-
attle, with her family pod,
which summers in Canadian
waters off northern Vancouver
Island.
Luna's move is expected
to cost at least C$550,000
($420,000), and while the U.S.
and Canadian governments
have contributed a total of
C$230,000, the rest will have
to be raised from private
sources.

WANA, Pakistan (Reuters) -
Pakistani warplanes, backed
by helicopter gunships,
bombed hideouts of al Qaeda-
linked militants on Saturday
in a fourth day of fighting in
the mountainous tribal re-
gion bordering Afghanistan
(news web sites).
Pashtun tribesmen also
heard artillery fire as the Paki-
stani forces intensified an as-
sault in the Shakai area of South
Waziristan,. 250 miles south-
west of Islamabad.
Casualty updates were
scanty, yesterday, but officials
have counted at least 54 people
killed in the fighting since the
offensive began.
"I woke up to the roar of
jets. Then I saw three helicop-
ters flying in the direction of
Shakai," said one resident of
Wana, the main town of South


Waziristan.
"There was a lot of firing,
like a guerrilla battle going on all
night," said a local in Shakai.
Residents saw air strikes on
the slopes of the nearby Tangari
hills, where brush and boulders
provide fine cover for guerrillas.
Afghan refugees in South
Waziristan were given 72 hours
to leave by authorities. Locals
saw many Aghans quitting the
Karikot refugee camp a few
miles south of Wana, and said
they were headed back to Af-
ghanistan..
Elsewhere, militants ex-
ploded a bomb in Dera Ismail
Khan town, 80 miles east of
Wana, killing one man and
wounding four at the house of
a senior official in Pakistan's
paramilitary border force.
The army-launched the
latest offensive after at-
tempts to negotiate an am-
nesty with tribesmen protect-


ing the. foreign militants
failed.
"The fighting is going on,"
military spokesman Major-
General Shaukat Sultan told
state-run Pakistan Television,
adding the operation would con-
tinue to its "logical end."
Sultan said on Friday 35
militants and 15 soldiers had
been killed the previous two
days, and a local government of-
ficer on Saturday reported an-
other soldier killed.
Three civilians have also
been reported killed.
AL QAEDA IN SIGHTS

geted a house frequented by a

Saddam's earless victims find hope in plastic suRLE 2rge

Saddam's earless victims find hope in plastic surgery


By Luke Baker

BAGHDAD (Reuters) In a
stiflingly hot and crowded
corridor of Baghdad's al-
Wasati hospital, Nofal
Dawoud is waiting nervously
to be made whole again.
Ten years ago, shortly after
defecting from Saddam
Hussein's army, Dawoud was
captured by members of the
Baath party and hauled into a
state hospital in the southern
city of Basra.
His hands were bound be-
hind his back, he was blind-
folded, injected with almost
enough anesthetic to cover the
pain and had his left ear cut off
by a surgeon acting on -the
dictator's latest whim. But that
wasn't the end of it.
Realizing that they should
have removed his right ear and
not the left, the doctors
promptly turned Dawoud over
and had the surgeon slice off the
other ear, too.
"I was taken to the hospi-
tal in the morning, and in the af-
ternoon I woke up to find that
I had had both ears cut off,"
said the 29-year-old, as if not
quite believing his own hideous
misfortune.
"After that, I just wanted to
die. I was depressed, I didn't
care about life. I wanted them
to kill me, but they wouldn't."
For years he was kept in
the army, where he was
beaten, ridiculed and tor-
mented by other soldiers and
officers. Eventually, in 2001,

Sir weeks ago, that hope be-
came a reality.
A group of Iraqi surgeons,
backed by the Health Minis-
try, announced that they
would perform free recon-
structive surgery on victims of
Saddam's 1994 mutilation
spree, as well as operations
they're already performing
on bomb and bullet victims.
Dr Ridha Ali, a plastic sur-
geon at al-Wasati hospital who
has performed hundreds of au-
ral reconstruction operations in
his lifetime, was one of the pio-
neers of that decision.
So far about 50 amputees
have come forward seeking an
operation to reconstruct their
ears, including Dawoud, who
journeyed from Basra to
Baghdad, six hours in a bus, im-
mediately after reading about
the offer in a local newspaper.
"These are people who are
desperate to feel normal again,"
Ali said of Dawoud, who in
early June underwent the first of
several operations over many
weeks.
"Giving them back their ears
is part of that process it's
something that can change their
lives."

RECREATINGAN EAR
Another of Ali's patients is
29-year-old Ali Waheed, who
deserted from the army in 1994
because, he said: "I was fed -up
with one war after another." He
was soon caught, taken to Kindi
hospital in Baghdad and in the
same chilling routine was bound,
blindfolded, anesthetized and
mutilated.
The anger and humiliation
pushed Waheed over the brink;
he says he all but lost his mind.
He began to slash himself with
razor blades. Pulling up his shirt,
he reveals his scarred arms and
chest, marked with hundreds of
cuts that have healed poorly and
disfigured him further.
Since Saddam's fall,
Waheed's life has already
changed. Unable to work for


years because of his mark of
shame, after the war he got a
job as a driver for a human
rights organization.
-Then.he heard on the radio
about the plastic surgery offer.
"I came right away, I was
just desperate to have something
done, to try to be made normal
again," he said.
Waheed has had one opera-
tion, which involved slicing into
the cavity behind his missing
right ear and inserting a plastic,
crescent-shaped base on which
the surgeon will build a new ear
using skin and cartilage grafted
from the patient's body.
He has a large red swollen
lump where his ear once was, but
is pleased with the progress. He
comes to al-Wasati almost every
day to ask doctors when they can
perform the next stage.
He still hides the deformity,
however, brushing his hair down
over the grisly mound on the
side of his head and wearing a
baseball cap with the peak
cocked to the right like a rap-
per.
"Before people would dis-
criminate against me and treat
me badly, but now that's
changed," said Waheed, showing
off the cap he says he's worn
every day since 1994. "I'm so
glad I didn't kill myself. I nearly
died, but I thank God for keep-
ing me alive. Life is normal now
and it's such a relief."
Waheed and Dawoud say
they frequently have flashbacks
to the day when surgeons sliced
off their ears, but they are over-
coming their anxiety.
As Dawoud waited in al-
Wasati's sweltering corridor
earlier this month ahead of
his first operation, he pro-
fessed to no nerves. No mat-
ter what came out of the op-
eration he said he'd be'happy
- it couldn't be worse than
having no ears at all.
"I'm still not married be-
cause of what happened to
me, but after the operation I
will propose."

Bhuvanesh'-ar Mand' open


T[IE tri-state district of
Queens, New York now
boasts its own Bhuvaneshwar
Mandir following its commis-
sioning three Sundays ago.
The event, which saw a huge
turn-out of US-based Guyanese
Hindus, was attended by President
of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic
Sabha, Pandit Reepu Daman
Persaud, who not only delivered
the feature address, but played an
integral role as well in the dedica-
tion of the building.
During the course of his ad-
dress, Persaud reportedly
lauded the impact Hinduism has
made the world over, noting that
"its rich philosophy is not only
intellectually stimulating, but
has been found to be practical
and relevant to life."
He further espoused that "its
message of tolerance and love
should be vigorously promoted
[since]... its characteristic, which
concedes that there are different.....
God's realization, is most appli-
cable in a multi-religious world."
Persaud, who was conferred
the BhuvaneshwarAward of Ex-
cellence for his outstanding
contribution to the propagation
of Hinduism and Indian culture
both at home in Guyana and the
Caribbean as well, also had a
kind word of his own for.the new

"Guyanese Hindus are

said, adding that Hindus from
other parts of the Caribbean, in-

Sleepy Iranian town blooms for rosewater season


By Christian Oliver and
Parinoosh Arami

QAMSAR, Iran (Reuters) -
For most of the year Qamsar
is a sleepy little town, mak-
ing a living from its walnut
trees and the long-horned
goats that live among the crags
of the Karkas mountains.
But for a few weeks in early
summer, the Qamsaris are trans-
formed into alchemists, pouring
rose petals into bubbling stills
and perfuming the town with
their scent. It is rosewater sea-
son.
Qamsari rosewater is a
source of national pride in Iran.
Once a year a ton of the fragrance
is taken to Mecca to wash down
the Kaaba, the focal point of


Muslim pilgrimage.
Visitors from across the Is-
lamic Republic flood into the
dusty town to pluck the garish
pink Mohammadi roses and
stock up on rosewater, sold to
them as a panacea for ailments
they never knew they had.
Retired engineer Jafar
Ghodesh, on a day trip from
Tehran, swears by it.
"I come every five years or
so. It does you wonders," he ex-
plained, clutching a couple of
clinking carrier bags stuffed with
bottles of Qamsar's leading com-
modity.
Most Iranian flower pickers
dry the rose petals as potpourri
or to sprinkle on yogurt.
"The roses from here,
Markazi province, are just the


best there are," said Zohre, a
young woman from Tehran,
bruising a petal between her fore-
finger and thumb.

SPOONFUL OF
ROSEWATER
Iranian rosewater is a cheap
food flavoring and curative.
Chefs sprinkle it over rice,
and one of the country's favor-
ite summer snacks, faloudeh, is
a noodle sorbet peppered with
pistachio nuts and drenched in
glycerin rosewater.
Inside tents, foyers and
shops the Qamsaris convince
visitors that a spoonful of
rosewater will sort out their
heart murmur and a splash on
the hands will cure their eczema.
Massoud Dadjou, managing


director of a small family firm
selling rosewater, said about 20
percent of his produce was
bought for religious ceremonies.
"That's for sprinkling, on tombs
mainly," he said.
Mosques have rosewater
sprinklers, often of ornate
metalwork, to combat musty-
interiors on hot days.
Dadjou said he had branched
out into new types of tonics.
Chicory water will fix sleep-
lessness and nervous disorders
while fenugreek will douse a fe-
ver. Caraway water is good for
fortifying the red blood cells. Or
so say all the bottles.

HARD TO COMPETE
The business has prob-


lems, said Mohammad Reza
Dadjou, Massoud's son. He
said that new technologies
could extract 200 grams of
essence from a ton of petals,
while small-time makers
could extract only half of that.
"The market is not good be-
cause at some centers they add
geranium essence as an artificial
scent," said Mohammad Reza,
adding producers could sell ge-
ranium-diluted rosewater for
about nine dollars a bottle. The
same amount of pure rosewater
would cost $20.
"Good rosewater reveals
itself when used. With gera-
nium essence, if you leave the
door open the scent disperses
after a while. But the smell of


fine rosewater lingers e'v,
after washing the container'.
he said.
Father and son agreed the
greatest challenge was trying to
market their product in a small
town where trade was divided
between dozens of small family
businesses.
The bigger enterprises in
town buy up rosewater for ex-
.port, competing with Bulgaria,
one of the world's leading pro-
ducers of rose oil.
The Dadjous said a kilo
of rose oil, the other prod-
uct of the distillation pro-
cess, would sell for about
$1,200 in Iran but fetch
$6,000 to $7,000 in Euro-
pean perfumeries.

MOSCOW (Reuters) To So-
viet-era music, Russians
marked with marches and gun
salutes .yesterday the begin-
ning of the end of the Soviet
Union 14 years ago, even
though many people could not
quite recall the event they
were celebrating.
Soviet military songs echoed
across Moscow and artillery
blasts rumbled in a cloudless sky.
Hundreds of troops, some in
camouflage and some in period
uniforms from Russia's imperial
past, slow-marched across Red
Square past a podium where
President Vladimir Putin (news
- web sites) took the salute..
The Soviet anthem re-in-
troduced by Putin in 2000 with
new words reverberated
across .the square in front of the
Kremlin walls and dancers from
ethnic minorities performed.
The holiday, commonly

known to Russians as "Inde-
pendence Day," marks the
adoption by parliament in
1990 of a declaration of
RUssia's sovereignty and the
affirmation that its laws took
precedence over those of the
Soviet Union.
A failed coup attempt the
following year led to Putin's
predecessor, Boris Yeltsin,
pushing aside Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev and phas-
ing out the Soviet Union in
December 1991.
"This is the day for every-
one who has contributed to our
country's prosperity and might,"
Putin, an ex-KGB agent, said in
a televised speech.
"We've chosen patriotism,
freedom and democracy as our
values... We all, hand in hand, are
building a free and democratic
nation."
Putin's words were
greeted by the military's
earsplitting "hurrah!" as thou-


sands of government officials,
politicians and businessmen
seated around Putin's podium
clapped.
But Russians on the streets,
many waving small flags and sip-
ping beer, were not quite sure
what they were celebrating.
"It's a shame but I have no
idea what the occasion is," said
Dmitry, a 34-year-old Musco-
vite. "But it's always good to
have a party, even a slightly So-
viet one."
A survey of 1,592 Rus-
sians by the VTsIOM polling
agency showed that 25 per-
cent of people did not know
"what Russia became inde-
pendent from," while a third
of respondents thought it was
"just a holiday."
"It doesn't matter
whether we know or not.
What matters is that Putin
truly cares about us," said
Lyuba, a company manager
in her 50s.

By Shahdi al-Kashif

GAZA (Reuters) The Pales-
tinian militant group Hamas
vowed yesterday to continue
attacks against Israel after an
Israeli pullout from Gaza and
refused to give a green light
to Egypt to assume a security
role in the coastal strip.
"Withdrawal from the Gaza
? Strip (news web sites) does not
mean the end of occupation,"
Mahmoud al-Zahar, a senior
Hamas leader, told reporters, re-
ferring to the West Bank. "Our
position will remain...to continue
the resistance."
Zahar spoke against the
backdrop of a meeting in Gaza
between Palestinian Prime Min-


ister Ahmed Qurie and militant
factions, including Hamas, fol-
lowing the Israeli cabinet's ap-
proval in principle on Sunday
of a Gaza pullout plan.
In separate remarks, Qurie
praised Egypt's offer to send
advisers to Gaza, a Hamas
stronghold, to help train and
equip the Palestinian Author-
ity (news web sites)'s secu-
rity forces.
Egypt's involvement is
widely seen as a bid to help en-
sure militants do not attack Is-
rael from Gaza after a pullout,
strikes likely to lead to Israeli
retaliation.
Asked whether Hamas
would provide Egypt or the
Palestinian Authority with


guarantees to stop attacks af-
ter a withdrawal, Zahar called
the unilateral pullout plan
"one-sided" and said the group
was "against giving any secu-
rity commitments."
Sworn to Israel's destruction,
militant groups like Hamas and
Islamic Jihad have carried out
suicide bombings and other at-
tacks that have killed hundreds
of Israelis. In return, Israel has
assassinated many of their lead-
ers.
Palestinian militant groups in
Lebanon said on Wednesday
they planned to meet Egyptian
officials to discuss a security role
for Egypt in Gaza.

tions in the tribal areas
that have failed to net any se-
nior al Qaeda or militant lead-
ers, air force jets were sent in
for the first time this week to
bomb houses where militants
had been spotted.
In late March, more than 120
combatants, including at least 46
soldiers, were killed when the
army launched its first major of-
fensive in South Waziristan.
Up to 600 foreign mili-
tants, including Arabs,
Chechens and Uzbeks linked
to Osama bin Laden (news -
web sites)'s al Qaeda network,
have been hiding out in
Pakistan's semi-autonomous
tribal areas, protected by Pa-
kistani tribesmen.
The latest unrest has spread
into neighboring North
Waziristan agency where mili-
tants fired rockets at paramilitary
checkposts on Friday night and
soldiers returned fire.
In Miranshah, the capital
of North Waziristan agency,


one checkpost outside the
town was damaged but no
casualties were reported, of-
ficials said.
The government suspects
an attempt to kill the military
commander in the southern
port city of Karachi on Thurs-
day may have been retaliation
by militants for the latest at-
tack on their tribal redoubts.
Six months ago, Pakistani
President General Pervez
Musharraf survived two assas-
sination attempts that were


blamed on al Qaeda-linked mili-
tants, although Musharraf later
revealed that several low-rank-
ing military personnel were also
involved.
Hardline Muslim groups
in Pakistan are bitterly op-
posed to Musharraf's deci-
sion to back the United States
after the September H, 2001,
attacks on New York and
Washington. (Additional re-

_______igh -out policies in cities save grating bu


-ight ;-out policies in cities save migrating birds


By Jon Hurdit

PI LADELPHIA (Rt-e rs) -
Tu ning out the lights city
sk' scrapers is helping i, save
the lives of thousands of birds
migrating across North
American cities to their spring
breeding grounds.
Bird lovers in some cities
have been urging owners, man-
agers and tenants of buildings
that lie on north-south migration
flyways to keep their structures
dark at night to reduce the num-
ber of birds killed in the spring
and fall migration months.
Tall buildings, whose ten-
ants often leave signage and
office space brightly lit it
night, have long been recog-
nized as a danger to migrating
birds. Nobody knows how
many perish after being drawn
to the light and die from the


impact of a collision or from
exhaustion, but most esti-
mates are in the tens of thou-
sands in the United States
each year.
Dr. Daniel Klem, a biology
professor at Muhlenberg College
in Allentown, Pa., estimates the
number of birds killed in the
United States each year by col-
liding with buildings could be as
high as one billion.
"I.think that's a conserva-
tive estimate," he said. "Birds
just don't see glass."
Volunteers who patrol city
sidewalks in the early morn-
ing during migration rou-
tinely return with a handful
of dead or injured birds, ac-
cording to experts.
But the observable casualty
rate is just a small fraction of the
total because the number of vol-
unteers is dwarfed by the vol-


ume of birds.

DEATHS REDUCED
Migrating birds can die not
only from the impact of flying
into plate glass they do not rec-
ognize as a hazard but from ex-
haustion after flying incessantly
around a source of light to which
they are drawn.
Dazed and disoriented birds '
not killed on impact may be
snapped up later by predators
such as crows and sea gulls that
have learned to regard such sites
as rich hunting grounds.
Bird-watchers report that
efforts to reduce the amount of
distracting artificial light signifi-
cantly lowers the number of birds
killed.
Chicago leads U.S. efforts to
reduce migration casualties.
About 30 major city-center
buildings turn out their lights.


At McCormick Place, a
large lakefront convention
center, ornithologists from the
city's Field Museum found
that bird mortality declined by
about 80 percent over a two-
year period.
Before the lights-out policy
at McCormick Place, research-
ers recorded some 29,000 dead
birds of 140 different species
over a 25-year period.
Ken Wysocki, past presi-
dent of the Chicago Ornithologi-
cal Society, said almost all of the
buildings in Chicago that should
turn lights out during migration
now do so.
Efforts of the Audubon So-
ciety and the Chicago Bird Col-
lision Monitors were boosted by
the city, which promoted a
lights-out program starting about
four years ago and played a key
role in persuading buildings to

cooperate.
"We've really made huge
strides in Chicago," said
Wysocki. "Ninety to ninety-five
percent of buildings that should.
have their lights off do have their
lights off."
Buildings turn out their lights
between 11 p.m. and dawn, end-
ing mass kills that sometimes
resulted in janitors in the morn-
ing shoveling piles of dead birds
off the sidewalks and into trash
bags.

RARE BIRDS
THREATENED
Particularly distressing for
bird lovers is the danger posed
to rare or declining species.
Among the known casualties
is the Kirtland's warbler, one of
America's rarest birds, whose
U.S. breeding population num-
bers just a few hundred in north-
ern Michigan. More common
dead specimens found in New
York during May included a va-
riety of thrush and an ovenbird,
a kind of warbler.
' New York lags Chicago in
its efforts to turn out lights,
although its bird death toll has
declined since the Sept. 11,


2001 destruction of the t
towers, said Rebekah,
Creshkoff, founder of Project
Safe Flight bird-protection
group.
Creshkoff urges Manhattan
building managers to turn their
lights out during migration but
admitted it's an uphill battle in a
city whose illuminated skyline
is one of its defining characteris-
tics.
Progress is better in Toronto,
Canada, where about 100 build-
ings signedup.in 1996foralights-
out program led by the Fatal
Light Awareness Program
(FLAP) and the World Wildlife
Fund. The result, after monitor-
ing 16 of the tallest buildings
over a five-year period, was a
"noted reduction in bird mortal-
ity," said FLAP executive direc-
tor Michael Mesure.
While brightly-lit build-
ings are one of the major
causes of bird deaths, the so-
lution is remarkably simple
and cheap, Mesure said.
"There is no environmental
issue that is as easy to over-
come," he said. "Turn off the
lights and the problem disap-
pears."

Flat-footed China Police


losing fight against crime


BEIJING (Reuters) Poor
health and shoddy detective
work kept Chinese police
from tracking down millions
of criminals last year, state
media reported on Friday.
About 70 percent of all
criminal cases investigated in the
country in 2003 went unsolved,
the Xinhua News Agency said.
China's Ministry of Public
Security tested the stamina of
nearly 400 police from different


parts of the country last year
and the vast majority came up
short, Xinhua said.
"The ministry also ran-
domly picked 400 front-line
policemen to receive a medical
check last year, finding 30 per-
cent of them suffered cardiovas-
cular diseases, 40 percent suf-
fered high blood pressure..., 30
percent had gastro enteric dis-
eases and 16 percent had hepa-
titis," the report said.


It did not elaborate.
Police acquired criminals'
fingerprints at the scene in less
than 10 percent of investigated
cases, Zhang Xinfeng, assistant
minister of Public Security, was
quoted as saying.
The ministry has re-
sponded by ordering officers
nationwide to undergo intensive
physical and technique training.
Poor physical shape not
only kept police from cracking


Fashion designer Egon


von Furstenberg dies


MILAN (Reuters) Fashion de-
signer Egon Von Furstenberg,
who ditched a banking career to
make dothes that gracedboth city
streets and the star-studded red
carpet, died on Friday aged 57.
A nephew of the late iconic
patriarch Gianni Agnelli whose
Fiat-founding family drew com-


prisons with the Kennedys -
Von Furstenberg was primed for
a career in banking.
But when he went to work in
New York in 1967, he fell in love
with fashion and started study-
ing style instead. While he was
working as a buyer for Macy's
departmentstores, one of his sup-


pliers suggested he design his
own line for larger women in the
United States..

Rome's annual high fashion gala,

"Donne sotto le stelle" (Women

the city's Spanish Steps. Recently.
Furstenberg teamed up with friend,
Vincenzo Merli, to start anewlabel,
F&M, and was planning to expand
into all areas of design from sun-
glasses to home-wear.

Angry buzzard terrorists

English country road
LONDON (Reuters) An angry buzzard is terrorising a
quiet English country road by dive-bombing passing cy-
clists, newspapers reported on Friday.
Paul Taylor, 71, said the bird of prey used its beak and
claws to rip a three-inch gash in his head as he cycled along the
stretch of road near Holsworthy, in Devon, western England.
"I thought at first it was a lorry passing and the wing mir-
ror had somehow caught my head," he told the Daily Mail.
"Then I saw the buzzard swooping in front of me and
suddenly there was blood pouring down my head and
face."
Last weekend 22 cyclists taking part in a long distance com-
petition along the road the A3072 suffered head injuries
or had gouges taken out of their helmets by the same bird, ac-
cording to the race coordinator.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds suggested
the bird was probably nesting nearby and was defending its
chicks.
"'We would suggest that people avoid the road for a few
weeks, but if cyclists do want to use it we would advise them
to paint a pair of eyes on their helmets," a spokeswoman
told hde Daily Express. "That will put-the buzzard off."

world Cup, pusned meir oppo-
nents back from the start while
excelling in the line-outs.
FORWARDS NULLIFIED
English concerns, mean-
while, centered on rustiness and
lack of pace behind the scrum.
With their forwards nullified, it
was soon obvious they had
much more to fear.
Flyhalf Charlie Hodgson
levelled after the Kiwi forwards
dived over at a maul before the
home team scored a gem of a try
after a quarter of an;hour.
England scrumhalf Matt
Dawson; who has barely played
since the World Cup, had a grub-
ber charged down, the ball was
spun wide and Howlett waltzed
around hooker Steve Thompson,
straightened to take the tackle while
flicking the ball right for Spencer to
dive in unopposed.
The touring side contin-
ued to miss their touch kicks
and, on 25 minutes, Rokocoko
blasted through for the sec-
ond try, brushing off some
wafer-thin tackles as he cut
back off. the left wing.
Carter's kick made it 17-3.
England, with openside
Richie.McCaw beating them to
every loose ball and New
Zealand lock Keith Robinson
and debutant 'flanker Jono
Gibbes outstanding, were so
rattled that, when offered a pen-
alty in front of the posts, the
decision was reversed after an
expletive from Ben Cohen.
Howlett scored the third try,
finding acres of space on the right
as Carter continued to slot his kicks
to make it 30-3 at the break.
England, struggling ever
since losing several of their
key World Cup players
through retirement or injury,
tried to retain some control
with flanker Joe Worsley and
lock Steve Borthwick on for
Chris .Jones and Danny
SGrewcock.

Roddick to face Grosjean Junior lifters vie for'


in Queen's final


By Pritha Sarkar

LONDON, (Reuters) Top
seed Andy Roddick won an
explosive showdown with
three-times former winner
Lleyton Hewitt 7-6 6-3
yesterday to hurtle into the
final of the Stella Artois
Championships.
In a repeat of last year's
final, the American champion
will meet France's Sebastien
G&osjean, who ended the run of
South Korean qualifier Lee
Hyung-taik 6-7 7-6 6-2.
"It feels like deja vu I


ANDY RODDICK
guess," Roddick said after
setting up the re-match with
fifth seed Grosjean.
"He's a very dangerous
player and there's not a whole
lot he doesn't do well. There
are no glaring holes in his
game."
Roddick twice equalled his
own service record, set during
Friday's quarter-finals, with
153-mph (246.2-kph) deliveries
as he fired his 13th and 15th
aces of the match past Hewitt
in the second set.
' Australian Hewitt, who-had-
won all three of the duo's
previous three meetings, should
have captured the first set as he
attempted to serve for it at 5-4,


having broken Roddick in the
fifth game.
However, he failed to hang
on to the advantage and let a
setpoint slip from his grasp in
the tiebreak.
Roddick kept up the
pressure from the baseline
and bagged the breaker 9-7
after forcing his opponent to
miscue a service return.
Hewitt's last victory over
Roddick had been in the 2001
U.S. Open quarter-finals and the
sixth seed was well aware that
he was facing a different kind of
opponent yesterday.
"I felt I was the better
player in the first set and
should have won it," Hewitt
said. "But he obviously became
the better player once he had
won that first set."
Roddick agreed: "Lleyton
played a better first set but he
had a sloppy game when he
served for it and I made the most
of it.
"Tennis is a confidence
game and when you play against
other top players, you just have
to zone in."
In the second set, Hewitt
wilted under the barrage of
shots as Roddick took his ace
tally to 15 and easily outclassed
the player who had won a hat-
trick of titles here between
2000-2002.
A double fault on match
point summed up Hewitt's
miserable day as he bowed out
after 74 minutes.
WIMBLEDON
PREPARATION
Grosjean had not dropped a
set in the tournament before
running into Lee and was clearly
relieved to have staged a
comeback after finding himself
a-set and-4-1-down yesterday.-
"I tried to play all the
points and not give up," said
Grosjean.

around so fast. I knew he was
playing so well but I tried not
to have any fear and continued
to attack the short balls.
"Being in the final is great
for me and wonderful
preparation for Wimbledon."
Grosjean dominated much
of the first set but, after he had
dropped just two points in his
first four service games, his
game disintegrated when he
attempted to serve for the set
at 5-4.
With dark clouds
hovering over centre court,
Lee displayed his unwavering
nerve and pounced on his
opponent to break for 5-5 with
a stinging forehand
crosscourt winner.
The 99th-ranked Lee made
Grosjean look ordinary in the
tiebreak.
As a scampering Grosjean
fired a forehand wide, Lee
sealed the breaker 7-4 before
compounding the Frenchman's
despair by galloping into a 4-1
lead in the second set.

ATHENS, (Reuters) -
International Olympic chief
Jacques Rogge was in hot
water again yesterday after
suggesting Greece might not
stage the best Games ever in
Athens this August
Rogge, who in the past week
has fired an earlier broadside at
Athens as well as upsetting top
American sprinter Marion Jones
on a separate issue, made the
comments in an Australian
television interview that enraged
Greek media.
Details of the interview
were released by Channel Nine
on its website ahead of
broadcast today. A Channel
Nine spokesman confirmed the
remarks in the interview.
Recalling the 1997 bidding
that led to Athens winning this
year's Games, Rogge said the
International Olympic
Committee took a gamble in
awarding the Games to Greece
when Rome would have been
the easier choice.
"We took the calculated
gamble in 1997 with a much-
improved Athens bid ... we'd
not take the easy way. The easy
way would have been to vote


in and he recovered to level the
contest 7-3 in the tiebreaker
after 101 minutes of see-saw
action.
Lee, who was bidding to
become the first qualifier to
reach the final here since
Laurence Tieleman achieved
the feat six years ago,'ran out
of ideas in the deciding set
and surrendered after two
hours 18 minutes when he
slammed a forehand long


for Rome," Rogge said.
"Rome was a much bigger
city and bigger country, but I
think in terms of values, return
to the origin and in terms of
saying thank you to the Greeks
who invented the sport 3000
years ago, then it was
worthwhile."
However, the remark that
most upset Greeks, already
sensitive after a barrage of
international criticism about
delays in Games preparations,
was a Rogge forecast of what he
might say at the closing
ceremony of the Athens Games
on August 29.
"Well, I might start by
saying that these were not the
best ever games, but...," Rogge
said.

DEFUSE ROW
After Rogge's remarks were
widely broadcast by Greek
television stations, Athens
Games organizers rushed to
defuse the row.
"President Rogge has
helped a lot in the preparation
of the Olympic Games. He
knows, as does the.public, that
the success of the Games will
be decided by what happens
between the opening ceremony
and the closing ceremony,"
Gianna Angelopoulos, head of
the Athens Games Organising
Committee, said.
Answering the comments
about Rome, she added: "Greece
got the right to stage the Games
because it had the best bid and
the best offer. Full stop."
Earlier this week,
organizers had again turned
the other cheek when Rogge
said in a Belgian newspaper
interview that Athens alone
was to blame for
overspending, and delayed
preparations."

Shaq and Kobe


fail to fire


By Roger Lajoie
AUBURN HILLS, Michigan,
(Reuters) Shaquille O'Neal
and Kobe Bryant have
teamed up to create some of
the greatest NBA Finals mo-
ments in the history of the
Los Angeles Lakers.
On Thursday night, they
teamed up to help create one of the
franchise's worst nights ever..
Richard Hamilton scored 31
points as the Detroit Pistons
led from start to finish to hu-
miliate the Lakers 88-68, giving
the Pistons a 2-1 lead in the
best-of-seven series and the
Lakers plenty to think about
heading into Game Four tomor-
row in Detroit.
"What it boiled down to is
we didn't execute and we let'
them rush us into decisions," a
sombre Bryant said.
The Lakers didn't execute
much of anything in game
three, with their two marquee
players a combined ll1-for-27
in one of the most lopsided
Lakers losses ever.
The Pistons scored the first
eight points of the game and
never trailed, holding the Lakers
to the lowest number of points
in franchise history since the
advent of the shot clock. The
Lakers had scored at least 70
points in 560 consecutive
games.


O'Neal and Bryant were at
the forefront of the loss, just as
they have been for so many
great Laker playoff moments.
Bryant had just one point in
22 minutes in the first half be-
fore finishing with 11, and
O'Neal managed just 14 points
- and only two in the second half
- while playing in foul trouble
for most of the game.
"They beat us to everything
tonight, played a little bit bet-
ter defense and we had a terrible
third quarter," O'Neal admitted.
No other Laker managed to
score in double figures in a game
where the favored Lakers looked
rattled right from the start.
With Karl Malone clearly
hurting with an injured knee and
Gary Payton also ineffective,
the onus is on O'Neal and
Bryant to get the job done to
make sure the series goes back
out west for games six and
seven if necessary.
It is a responsibility that
O'Neal can certainly live with.
"Once we dig deep down and
pick it up, we can get right back in
there," O'Neal said. "I think once
we focus on the little things, we can
get right back in it."
Bryant said: "Hopefully
we'll use the next two days to
heal up a little more, work on
our execution a little bit and
come back with a better ef-
fort.

WICB president questions heavy.



international cricket schedule


KINGSTON, Jamaica The
President of the West Indies
Cricket Board, (WICB),Teddy
Griffith has questioned
whether there is a link
between the prevalence of
injuries to leading cricketers
and the volume of
international cricket being
played.
After citing medical studies
on cricketers from three of the
Test Playing countries, Griffith
asked: "Could it be that there
is too much of a good thing?
Could it be that the stresses and
strains of non-stop International
competition are having an effect
on the injury-levels?"
The statistics, he said, ought
to be viewed in the context of a
Situation where, the West
Indies, if they go through to the
finals of both the tri-country
ODI series in England
commencing in June, and the
ICC Champions Trophy in
September, would have played
a possible 113 days of cricket
at the international level, 80 in
Test Matches and 33 in One-
Days, in the ten-month period
since November 2003, not
including tour matches or warm-
up games.
By comparison, he pointed
out, ten years ago, for the whole
of 1993 and1994, the then team
would have had 120 possible
playing days, 75 in Test
matches and 45 in ODIs, over a
24-month period.
The WICB President was
the guest speaker at the Annual
Awards Banquet of the Medical
Association of Jamaica held at
the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in
Kingston recently.
Speaking on the theme the
Challenges of Modern-Day


Cricket, he said the prevalence
of injuries was of particular
concern to the cricketing world
not least from the perspective
of the fans who were unable to
see their favourite players in
action.
"Even more important is




.. b


the possibility of permanent
damage to the health and
curtailment of the careers of
.these young athletes," he added.
After revealing the data, the
WICB President issued a
challenge to the medical
profession. He said although
there might be factors other than
the heavy schedule there was a
need for more research.
"This is where I throw out
a challenge to your esteemed
body and similar organizations
throughout the region to apply
your skills to help in this regard.
Your work may be able to
help determine the cause and
ultimately to limit the incidence
of cricket-related injuries," he
said. The Board woulaf
definitely encourage an
intervention such as this, which
has the potential to improve
the health and performance of


the players, he said.
The WICB, he said, was
playing its part and had
invested in expensive Sports
vision testing equipment, a first
in the Caribbean, whtch the
President took the opportunity
to offer to any other sporting
body that wished to use it.
The equipment assisted the
work of the WICB's medical
1ianel led by Dr Akshai
Mansingh of the University
Hospital of the West Indies in
Jamaica, which dealt with
injuries, performance activities
such as visual acuity and sports
vision enhancement, nutritional
and psychological testing and
guidance.
Griffith pointed out that we
lived in an era of cricket which
placed great stress on physical
fitness with emphasis on the
parts of the body most used in
the particular area of the game -
, specialised nutrition and
readily available physiotherapy,
all of which was geared to
ensure an optimal level of
performance.
However, he said, there was
a worrying trend as
demonstrated by data from
different countries.
A five-year study of First
Class and Test Cricket in
Australia ending in 2001
showed that the average
incidence of match injury varied
from a low of 19.0 injuries per
10,000 player hours in first
class domestic matches to a high
of 38.5 injuries per 10,000
player hours 'in one-day
internationals the WICB
president said.
Pace bowlers headed the
injury prevalence scale, being
more than three times liable to
miss games than spin bowlers
and batsmen and seven times

Jone relae Read;TT B1 H ^9i^*


LONDON, (Reuters) -
England have replaced
wicketkeeper Chris Read
with Geraint Jones for the
one-day triangular series
with New Zealand and West
Indies.
The 14-man squad for 'the
tournament, which begins' on
June 24, also includes
Lancashire fast bowler Sajid
Mahmood for the first time.
Kent batsman Robert Key,
who featured in last year's
home one-day intern tionals,
returns after an impressive
season in the English county
championship.
Jones took.over from Read
as wicketkeeper for the final
Test of four against West Indies
in April and scored a century in
the nine-wicket victory over
New Zealand at Headingley
earlier this week.
However, Read retained his
place in one-day side in West
Indies and was named man of
the match after scoring 27 to
guide England to victory in the
opening one-day international in
Guyana.


"The selectors discussed the
wicket-keeping position at
length before choosing this
squad and thought long and hard
over the respective merits of
Geraint Jones and Chris Read,"
England's chairman of selectors
David Graveney said in a
statement.


Sajad Mahmood toured
India with the England A
team.

bat in a number of different
positions and this was- an


important factor in reaching our
decision."
. Gareth Batty, Rikki Clarke
and James Kirtley are the other
players omitted from the squad
that toured West Indies.
England have picked 14
players, as this is in line with
squad requirements for the ICC
Champions Trophy which
starts in England in September.
"We also feel that past
experience shows that a 15-man
squad can lead to certain players
being under utilised during the
course of the tournament.,"
Graveney added.
England play New Zealand
in the first game under
floodlights at Old Trafford in
Manchester on June 24.
England squad:
Michael Vaughan
(captain), James Anderson,
Ian Blackwell, Paul
Collingwood, Andrew
Flintoff, Ashley Giles,

more than wicketkeepers,
according to the study. Bowlers
who had bowled more than 20
match overs in the week leading
up to a match had an increased
risk of sustaining a bowling
injury. A further risk for bowling
injury was bowling second in a
match, he said.
Griffith said that data
published this year had shown
an increased likelihood of
injuries to fast bowlers who
bowl less than 20 overs or more
than 35 overs per week and that
was further increased with
spells of more than 12 overs.
Another study of elite
cricketers conducted in South
Africa during a three-season
period revealed that of 812
injuries in 436 cricketers, 41 per
cent occurred in bowlers, with
29 per cent in fielders and 17
per cent in batsmen, he
disclosed. Griffith said the data
showed that almost 65.50 per
cent of fast bowlers below 20
years of age had evidence of
disc problems and 22 per cent
went on to develop degenerative
changes within 2.7 years.
In the West Indies, he said,
our figures show that over the
past year the incidence of
injuries per 10,000 player hours
was 42.74 for Test
Matches, 38.78 for One
Day Internationals and 25.88


for First Class games, higher
than that of Australia and South
Africa.
Interestingly, the President
said, a further breakdown of the
figures for the Tests and the
ODIs for the West Indies
showed that the incidence in
away matches was 61.9 for
Tests and 73.3 for the ODIs. He
expressed the Board's hope that
with a full time physiotherapist
travelling with team, there
would be a decrease in the
incidence of injuries.
The Board, Griffith said
recognized that the level of
fitness and strength of our


players entering the West In r.-es
team was far below their
compatriots from other
countries.
"To that end we would like
to see each territorial team
having the services of at least
one qualified trainer and
physiotherapist.
But we feel that bodies
like yours could help by
emphasising the importance
of fitness and strength, both
physical and mental, to
school boys and club
cricketers, from where we
derive our pool," he
suggested.

Euro 2004 opener..


Greece stun hosts



Portugal with 2-1 win


By Mitch Phillips

PORTO, (Reuters) Greece
recorded the greatest win in
their soccer history by upset-
ting host nation Portugal 2-1
in the opening game of Euro
2004 yesterday.
Portugal were stunned by


goals early in each half and can
have no complaints as they
rarely troubled a well-drilled and
committed Greek side.
"This is the biggest win of
any Greek team ever," German
-coach Otto Rehhagel said of the
nation who had never previ-
ously won a finals match. "To-


morrow is a" Sunday and I hope
that Greeks will hang flags out-
side their houses."

looking composed on the ball
and determined in defence, led
through Giorgos Karagounis's
seventh-minute shot and'
doubled the advantage with an

minutes into the second half.
They then held out until
injury .time when Cristiano
Ronaldo headed a consolation
goal from a Luis Figo corner,
After the excitement of
Porto's Champions League suc-
cess last -month and the antici-
pation of hosting their first ma-
jor tournament, the result was
a huge anti-climax for most of
the 50,000 crowd at the impres-
sive Diagao Stadium ind inil-
lions-watching around the coun-
try.
"I'm beaten down, sad.
But these results happen,"
said Portugal coach Luis
Felipe Scolari.
However, for the few thou-
sand wildly celebrating Greek
fans and lovers of a soccer un-
derdog, it was a day to cherish.
"We've achieved something
totally unknown to us. We came
to fight," said Karagounis.

NOT OVEAWED
Greece, who qualified ahead
of Spain and drew with Portu-
gal in a November friendly, had
shown they would not be over-
awed as they cut through in the
first minute, striker Angelos
Haristeas miskicking in front of
goal after a low cross by Zisis
Vryzas.
It was an encouraging start
for a team who failed to score
in their three group games dur-
ing their last appearance in a
major tournament, the World
Cup 10 years ago.
It got better six minutes
later as midfielder
Karagounis pounced on a
misplaced pass out of defence
by Paulo Ferreira, took the
ball forward and drove in a
low shot from the edge of the
area.
Portugal, who had not lost
any of their previous nine Eu-
ropean Championship group.
games, rarely penetrated a de-
fence superbly led by centre
backs Traianos Dellas and
Michalis Kapsis and their only
real chance of the first half was
a misplaced Rui Costa header
after 25 minutes.
Scolari introduced
Ronaldo to' add invention in
the second half but the
winger's first contribution was
to bring down Yourkas
Seitaridis with a clumsy chal-
lenge.
Italian referee Pierluigi
Collina pointed to the spot and
midfielder Angelos Basinas sent
goalkeeper Ricardo the wrong
way with a crisply-struck pen-
alty.
Despite having almost 40
minutes to get back into the
game, Portugal appeared to be
feeling the effects of two years
without a competitive match
and were bereft of ideas.
Greek keeper Antonis
Nikopolidis was barely tested
and Ronaldo's sharp header
came too late to spoil Greece's *
day and barely raised a cheer
from the fast-disappearing
crowd.
Scolari, who led Brazil to
their World Cup triumph two
years ago, must now lift his
adopted nation for their next
game against Russia.
"The next game is life or
death," he said.


Scolari apologise-


for sad Portugal.


By Brian Homewood

PORTO, (Reuters) Portugal
coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, de-
flated after the hosts' shock
2-1 defeat by Greece in the
opening Euro 2004 match
yesterday, apologised and said
the next game would be a life
or death affair.
"I want to apologise for the
result and our performance
which didn't reward the back-
ing we had from the public,"
said the Brazilian.
"I'm up! t and sad .. and
the players are down as well.
"In a competition like this
where you play three games,
you can only afford to lose one
match. We had our defeat today.
The next game is life or death.
That is how we have to face it."
Portugal were made to pay
dearly for an early mistake when
defender Paulo Ferreira sent a
pass out of defence straight to
Greek midfielder Giorgos
Karagounis, who gave his team
a seventh-minute lead.
The hosts' fate was sealed
when Angelos Basinas con-
verted a penalty six minutes
into the second half before
Cristiano Ronaldo pulled one
back in injury time.
They face Russia in Lisbon
on Wednesday desperately need-
ing a win to stay in the tourna-
ment.
Scolari said his team, who
created only one genuine chance
before their goal and often
looked too lightweight to
threaten their opponents, had
failed to recover from their early
setback.


"Right at the start of the
game, we gave the ball away and
we gave Greece what they most
needed," said Scolari, who led
Brazil to their fifth World Cup
win in South Korea and Japan
two years ago.
"Our error gave them a
goal chance which completely
changed our team's way of
playing and gave confidence
and personality to the
Greeks.
"The second half was the
same thing. We made another
passing mistake at the start and
they got the penalty.
"We created a few chances
but Greece were well organised,
they closed up at the back and
exploited the counter-attack.
"We lost control of the
game. ... We made mistake's in
positioning, we made mistakes


with our passing.
"These results happen
and you have to be prepared
for them. You have to know
how to win and how to lose."

FARO, (Reuters) Juan
Carlos Valeron came off the
bench to give Spain a .1-0
victory over Russia in their
Euro 2004 opener yesterday,
restoring the established
order in Group A after
Greece's stunning win over
Portugal.
Spain dominated the first
half, with Ruben Baraja ruling
the midfield and Vicente and
Joseba Etxeberria baffling the
Russian defence on the wings.
Russia collected a rash of
yellow cards as they tried to
contain the Spaniards and
defender Roman Sharonov was
sent off late in the game for his
second bookable offence.
The match turned when
Inaki Saez brought on Valeron
and Xabi Alonso in the 59th
minute.
A minute later, Caries
Puyol crossed low from the
right and Valeron's first
contribution was to place the
ball calmly past Sergei
Ovchinnikov.
It was only the second time
Spain had won their opening
match in the European
Championship since the group


phase was introduced in 1980,
while Russia went a record-
equalling eighth successive
*match without a win at the
finals.
A better start looked certain
for Spain this time as they came
out of the blocks with real
conviction.
An opening goal .almost
came in the second minute,
when Baraja found Raul in
space with-a deft through ball.
The striker turned to make
space but his shot squeezed
just wide.
Russia's first attack came in
the 16th minute when Marat
Izmailov took a pass from
Alexander Mostovoi and
crossed for Dmitry Bulykin to
shoot tamely.
Vicente's drive brought
Spain close again after 36
minutes as he rode one late
challenge on the edge of the area
and crossed.
Morientes forced a fine
save from Ovchinnikov with a
point-blank header and
Etxeberria missed the chance to
finish off.
Russia were not out of it,
though, and Dmitry

Kiwis build healthy lead after

'6R'0% -%ma Ira%* icdu du


By Anna Thompson &
Oliver Brett

WHEN Test Match Special
statistician Bill Frindall
heard he had been awarded
an MBE he immediately set
about finding out if any other
scorers had received an
honour.
And his research led him to
Australian WH Ferguson, who
was handed a British Empire
Medal in the 1950s.
Frindall told BBC Sport: "It
was a bit of a shock to find out
I had been awarded an MBE but
a nice shock.


"I'm absolutely chuffed. It's
a tremendous honour and one I
never expected to get for doing
my hobby and getting paid for
it for 40 years.
"It's an honour for all
scorers across the land that's
the most wonderful aspect of
it."
WH Ferguson is the only
other cricket statistician to
have been honoured, an
Australian granted the
-British Empire Medal many
years ago, who Frindall met
when he was 14 years old and
a fledgling scorer himself.
"I share the same initials as
him and I found out he died in
Bath," he said. "My nearest
hospital is in Bath but I hope I
don't follow him in this trend
as well."


Frindall, known as the
Bearded Wonder, is as famed for
his facial hair as his love of
cricket statistics.
He has been a valuable
member of the BBC's TMS
team for five decades.
The 65-year-old began
working for the BBC in 1966
when former- scorer Arthur
Wrigley died.
Frindall seized on the
vacancy by telephoning the head
of cricket coverage and he
backed it up with a letter
offering his services.
There have been 39
summers of anecdotes since and
Frindall has worked alongside
such luminaries as John Arlott
and Brian Johnston, who
christened him Bearders.
Nothing seems, to have
given Frindall more pleasure
than answering Radio Four
listeners questions and BBC
Sport website punters'
emails.
Many have attempted to
stump the Bearded Wonder but
not many have succeeded.
One statistic Frindall is
proud of is the fact he has only
missed a single Test match in
this country since his BBC
debut against West Indies at Old
Trafford.
Frindall has only shaved his
beard of his own volition once,
back in the summer of 66, but
did allow his cheek carpets to
be removed for Sport Relief two
years ago.
A complete cricket anorak,
Frindall has compiled umpteen
books and spent a brief spell as
a correspondent on the Mail on
Sunday.
He is also president of
British Blind Sport.
Although he is extremely proud
of his MBE, he said he "would not'
stick it on his front door".
And he added: "I am sure
the rest of the TMS team will
give me some terrible stick
when they find out. (BBC

Colts, Nets book semifinal places


BOUNTY Colts and Nets
booked their places to the
semi-final round of the
Invitational Basketball
tournament following Friday
night's action at the Cliff
Anderson Sports Hall.
Colts defeated Emperors in
the feature ball game, while
Nets blew away Plaisance
Patriots in the opening
encounter 84-53 points.
Colts, pre-tournament
favourites to take the title and
top prize, won a closely
contested battle.
The national club
champions after the first quarter
led Emperors 27-22 and by the
half way interval were ahead by
seven points 43-36,.
The lead was broken down
to within four points in the
third period but Colts hung on
for the victory in the fourth


period by the same four-point
margin.
Kelvin Simon with 19
points and Cutwin Blades 15
were the top scorers for Colts,
while Kevin Lawrence 17,
Suriah Clarke 15 and
Sheldon Braithwaite 11 were
leading scorers for Emperors.
In game one, Nets came
from behind to win against
Partiots.
Patriots who were a driving
force in the tournament came
out gunning from jump ball time
and by the end of the first
quarter led 21-13; however Nets
did enough to erase the deficit
and trailed 36-37 at the half-
way interval.
After the resumption,
Nets took control of the game
adding 25 points to lead 61-
48 and by the end of
regulation time, Nets totaled


84 as against Patriots' 53,
adding a mere five points in
the ten-minute last period.
Fabian Johnson had 15
and Mortimer Williams 11
for Nets, while Trenton
Woolford had 24 and Marvin
King 14 for Patriots.
Thus Patriots and Emperors
were eliminated.
Semi-final action bounces
off this evening at the same
venue with Bounty Colts
meeting the winner of the
Wismar Pistons/Ravens
encounter which was scheduled
to be played off last night in
game one, while Nets await the

bankrupt
THE World Bszg Comcil (WBC) has been forced into
quidatioa after bling a 17m legal battle against former
worM drwmq Gradaei Rocchigiani.
Ro'itgiani was originally awarded the sum in April 2003
afta rm g he was legaDly stripped of the WBC's light heavy-
wei in March 1998.
losing the appeal, WBC president Jose Sulaiman said
it was impossiblee" for the body to pay the award.
And the WBC has been forcedino bankruptcy proceedings.
The WBC had hoped to persuade the court and jury that it
was not liable irresponsible for "the harm Rocchigiani alleged."
"Sadly, and despite a vigor-
ous defence, the WBC did not
prevail." Sulaiman said.
Rocchigiani beat Michael
Nunn for what was supposed to
be a title that Roy Jones Jnr had
S relinquished.
But in June. when Jones de-
cided he ,anted to keep the belt,
the WBC opted to retain him ab
champion.
In addition to the compen-

More sleep, a sugar fix and caffeine wbp't
do the trick. SHERRY BOLLERS-DIXON
tells us what will.


AN EXTRA HOUR'S SLEEP
MAKES YOU FEEL MORE
ALERT
More sleep isn't always
better it often depends on
quality rather than quantity. If
your sleep is too light, broken


or disturbed, it's not benefiting
you. The body much prefers
going to bed and getting up at,
roughly the same time each day.
Too much sleep can make you
feel groggy that hangover
feeling you get is usually due to
dehydration. Only the odd
person feels great on 12
hours a night.

^ SUPPLEMENTS
BOOST YOUR
ENERGY RESERVES
No supplement will
change your life if your


diet and lifestyle are
unhealthy, but taking
vitamins B and C may be
useful if you're feeling
drained, as they boost the
adrenal glands. If you're
convalescing or under major
stress, try ginseng but see a
qualified practitioner to work
out which type you should
take.

POWER NAPPING
REPLENISHES ENERGY
SUPPLIES
It's fine as long as you
don't nap for too long 15
minutes-can help you feel-
refreshed. Any longer means
you enter deep sleep and get
woken up in the middle of a


sleep cycle, leaving you
feeling as if you need more.

AHEARTYBREAKFAST
SETS YOU UP
FOR THE DAY
If you eat too large a
breakfast, it can actually make
you feel sluggish, as more blood
and energy are needed to digest
large meals. Something like a
bowl of fibre cereal, two slices
of wholemeal toast and a glass
of orange juice is enough.

ABRISK WALK WILL
WAKEYOUUP
Some people actually feel
more tired after exercise, but this
is probably because they








'A



.


haven't eaten *
properly or they're
feeling stressed. For '
most people, a walk will
boost energy as it
increases circulation, which
wakes up your whole body.


There's.also the feel good factor
of getting some fresh air.
EARLY MORNING IS THE
BEST TIME TO EXERCISE
There are no hard and fast
rules about this, but if your
energy levels are low in the


evenings, it's best to work out
first thing. However, if you
don't feel energised in the
mornings, exercise after work or
at lunch time. Ideally before
you exercise you should have a
glass of fruit juice, which is
readily absorbed and so can be
used immediately for energy.
Exercising first thing generally
boosts energy but you can over
exercise which will lead to
fatigue, a suppressed immune
system and poor recovery. On
the other hand, late-night
exercise can give you a buzz and
stop you from sleeping
properly.

SUGARY SNACKS AFTER
EXERCISE GIVE YOU
INSTANT ENERGY
Most people don't have an
energy slump after exercise,
they normally feel
invigorated. But if you mostly
eat refined carbohydrates, such
as chocolate, the best time is
immediately after strenuous
exercise. This is because it will

ItE


pressure is
one of the
major health
problems in the Caribbean.
In many people the condition
goes undetected until serious
damage has been done to
their health. It is only
possible to control the
disease when people
understand enough about it
and are able to self manage
it well.

WHAT IS BLOOD
PRESSURE

Blood pressure is the force
exerted by the blood stream
against the walls of arteries.
Arteries are the tubes or vessels
which carry blood from the
heart. Everyone has to have
some blood pressure. It is
absolutely necessary to get
blood to our various organs and
muscles.
Normally, each time our
heart beats (about 60-70 times
a minute at rest), it pushes
blood out into the arteries. The
blood flows to parts of the
body, such as the liver, the
kidney, or the brain, and then
returns to the heart through the
veins. Connecting. the arteries
and veins are smaller tubes
called arterioles, which can open
wide (dilate) or partially close
(constrict).
The heart is similar to a
faucet. Opening the faucet
resembles the pumping action
of the heart. Closed, the faucet
represents the heart relaxing as
it does between each beat. The
arteries resemble the tubing of
a hose. The small blood vessels
arterioless) are like a nozzle. If
the nozzle is kept.open, water
will flow freely through the
hose, and little pressure is built


fairly low or normal. If they
narrow or constrict, higher
blood pressure results.
Blood pressure can
fluctuate widely. It can rise
tentatively during periods of
excitement, nervousness, or
exercise, or it may become low
when we sleep. Contrary to
what most people believe,
blood pressure is lowest just
before and as we wake up in the
morning. It remains at similar
levels during the day and
decreases during sleep. A
person's blood pressure may
vary within the course of a day.
A single reading may, therefore,
not be representative of the
average daily blood pressure.


HOW BLOOD PRESSURE
IS MEASURED

The amount of pressure in
the artery is measured by the
level of air or mercury in a tube,
which is part of a blood
pressure instrument (a
sphygmomanometer). A special
cuff is placed around one arm
and inflated with air until the
circulation in the artery is
temporarily cut off. As the air
is gradually released, by opening
a valve, the person measuring
the pressure uses a stethoscope
over the artery at the bend in the
arm to listen for the first sound
of blood rushing through the
artery. The number on the gauge


up on the walls of the hose. If
the nozzle is clamped down or
blocked, however, increased
pressure is built up on the sides
of the hose each time the faucet
is opened and water flows into
it. Similarly, if the arterioles or
small blood vessels remain open
as the heart beats, blood
pressure in the arteries remains


at that precise moment
represents the pumping or
systolic pressure. This is the
pressure prOiduced in the artery
each time #e blood is pushed
forcibly from the heart into the
large blood vessels. It is
recorded as the top figure of the
blood pressure reading.
Additional air is gradually
released from the cuff. When all
pumping or beating sounds
stop, -the number on the
pressure gauge represents the
resting or diastolic pressure.
This is the pressure that exists
in the arteries when the heart is
relaxing between beats. This is
recorded as the bottom figure of
the blood pressure reading.
So blood pressure
measurement is recorded with
two numbers: the smaller, or
bottom number, is the number
the doctor will usually base
your treatment on as this is the
pressure of the heart-when it-is
relaxed.
Several blood pressure
measurements on separate visits
have to be taken to be sure you


do have high blood pressure and
need medication. Factors which
might affect your blood
pressure also have to be
considered. Only then can one
be said to.,have high blood
pressure. .

WHAT IS NORMAL BLOOD
PRESSURE

So-called normal blood
pressure may be as low as 70/
50 in infants, or as high as
140/90 in adults. Young
children and adults usually
have blood pressures lower
than 120/80. If a person's
blood pressure is higher than
this (for example, a six-year-
old boy with a sustained
pressure of 140/90 or an adult
with a pressure of 140/90 or
. higher) he or she is. said to
have high blood pressure..
Normal blood pressure
for people 18 years and old
is below 120/80. Between the
ages of 18 40, a reading
above this and up to 139/89
is considered as per-


hypertension. The risk of
damaging the heart and.lood
vessels increased as blood
pressure rises above 1 /90.
regardless of age. The
Seventh Report of th oint
National Committee on
Prevention, Detection,
Evaluation and Treatment of
High Blood pressure, makes
the following classification.

WHAT CAUSES HIGH
BLOOD PRESSURE

A build-up of pressure
within the arteries is caused
when the small blood vessels
constrict more than they are
supposed to, or the kidney is
unable to get rid of the
amount of sodium some
people take in. Excess body
fat contributes to jilood
pressure levels from infancy
and is the most important
factor leading to high blood
pressure.-Thus, being

Sunday Chronicle June 13, 2004


U .









Sam sitting here so un
sure of what to do
anymore. I've never
asked anyone for help
of this type, as many people
come to me for answers. I am a
social worker and my husband
is a psychologist. We should
have the answers, but we just
don't.
We have been married 10
years and have an 8-year-old
daughter. The problem as I
see it is my husband refuses
to help out at home. He will
not do anything associated
with domestic work. He does
not mow the lawn. What he
does is work a fall-time job,
play music in a band on
weekends, and play in two
sports leagues.-
He is very negative, and
over the past few years,
increasingly critical of me
and everything I do or don't


do. I work a full-time job with
a private practice on the side.
I take care of everything and
somehow manage to stay
sane. When I bring up the
unfairness of our roles, I am
always met with, "I don't
want to hear about it. Shut
up. Go away. Leave me
alone."
I work my butt off every
single day and am so tired. Yes,
I get crabby sometimes, but it
is because I feel I am living in a
hopeless situation..I feel more
resentful as the years go by,
and my blood pressure was high
enough to start medication two
years ago.
We are in debt because my
husband returned to school
seven years ago to get his
Ph.D. Divorcing now would
probably ruin us both
financially. He tells our daughter
we will never divorce, yet when


an argument starts, he tells me of a home without any of the
we should get a divorce and end responsibilities. Behaviour
it. I am not one to give in easily, follows feelings, and his
but I don't feel he loves me. I behaviour supports your
feel used. belief that he does not love
you.


PRISCILLA


Priscilla, in what
book or counsel"
ling session did
your husband
learn to settle arguments by
threatening his spouse .with
divorce? In what class on
conflict resolution did he find
that little gem? People who are
pretty amiable and choose to
stay together, usually can. But
when one person won't
participate, there is nothing you
can do.
Your husband is treating
'your house like a bed and
breakfast all the amenities


You don't give up easily,
but you know how this often
plays out. When a woman has
been doing it all, even if the
husband is finally willing to
make an effort, it is too late.
The wife is already dead
emotionally. You already feel
used, and there are limits to
how much criticism a person
can take.
Lay your cards on the table.
It's one thing if he is willing to
do the talk, meditation, body
work, or whatever it takes to
break him loose from where he
has been as a person. It is
another not to be willing to
begin.
You are not one to give in
easily, but when sailors drown,
it is not because they lack
resolve but because they are -
dealing with forces beyond their
control.
In finding the limits to
what you can do in your own
life, you may have learned
what you can and cannot do
to help others.

SThe Dentist Advises


THE early growth
a n d
development of
the facial region
is influenced by
a multitude of
factors. Habits
can affect the orofacial
structures and can influence the
facial growth, oral function,
occlusal (bite) relationships, and
facial aesthetics of a patient. In
other words, a child may even
grow not resembling his or her
parents because of certain
deleterious habits extant during
the formation years.
The main functions of the
oral cavity are respiration,
swallowing, mastication and
speech. Newborn infants are


obligatory nasal breathers, but
the lower jaw and tongue must
be positioned away from the
throat for the airway to be
patent. If nasal breathing
becomes obstructed, oral
breathing must commence.
Respiratory needs therefore can
be a primary determinant of
lower jaw posture and tongue
position in the later years.
Respiratory and swallowing
movements are activities which
have been noted in utero. In
fact, it is not unusual to detect
a fetus sucking his or her thumb
even four months before being
born. At birth, the infant
exhibits two reflexes that are
related to sucking. The root
reflex, which lasts until the child


is approximately seqvn months
of age, is the movement of an
infant's head and tongue toward
a stimulus touching the infant's
cheek. i
The sucking reflex, active
movements of the' infant's
muscles surrounding the
mouth, expresses milk from
the nipple and lasts for
approximately 12 months. To
obtain milk from the
mother's breast, the infant
does not need to suck, but
instead, stimulate the smooth
muscle in the breast to
contract and express milk
onto the tongue; this is called
suckling. The milk is carried

swallow does not occur the
same way as in the case of the
adult. It is characterized by
the infant placing their
tongue beneath the nipples,
contracting the lower lip, and
swallowing with the lips


together and jaws apart.
On the other hand, the adult
swallow is characterized by a
teeth together swallow, with the
tongue against the palate and
lips relaxed. The transition from
the infantile way of sucking to
the adult way is gradual and
disruption of itsinormal process
can result in abnormal physical
changes in the nuiddle and lower
sections of the face.
When a chiid who is more
than three years old habitually
sucks their fingers it can give
rise to 12 different harmful
effects that eventually lead to
disfigurement of the entire
dentition, upper and lower jaws,
upper and lower lips, and
palate. The aftermath, which
depends on the frequency,
intensity and duration of the
habit, is invariably an
adulteration of the child's
beauty. The term adenoid facies


has been used to describe the
facial appearance of patients
with a long face and anterior
open bite: This comes from
habitual mouth breathing. More
specifically, these patients
demonstrate a downward and
backward rotation of their
lower.jat during growth,
excess eruption of posterior
teeth, upler jaw constriction,
anterior open bite and increased
anterior" (especially lower) facial
length.
The instances whereby
harmful habits during a
person's tender years can
modify their facial
appearances are too
numerous to mention here.
However, the advice given is
that professional intervention
should be sought whenever a
young child is. observed to be
practising abnormal habits
with the Oiouth.

replace used glycogen the
energy source in the muscles -
without your putting on weight.
Sugary snacks only boost
energy for a short period of
time, usually ten to fifteen
minutes. After this, blood sugar
levels drop and so does energy.
This can lead to cravings for
sugary foods on a regular basis
which effectively steals energy.
This is because the body panics
when it gets too much sugar and
suppresses its effect, which
leads to a slump. You tend to
crave a sugary snack when your
blood sugar is low. Many
women lack energy in the week
before their period simply
because they actually need an
extra 500 calories a day during

that time as extra demands are
being placed on the body. Yet
many women make the
mistake of thinking their
body is craving a one-hit
calories-packed snack, when in
fact it wants nutritious foods
such as fish, fresh fruit and
vegetables to keep it going.

NOT HAVING SEX AT
NIGHT GIVES YOU MORE
ENERGY
This is a myth. A US study
put two sets of men on a
treadmill one group who
hadn't had recent sex, the other
who had made love 12 hours
before and found there was no
difference in their aerobic
performance. Less sex won't
boost energy unless having sex
deprives you of sleep!

BANANAS GIVE A
SUSTAINED ENERGY ,!
BOOST
Actually, this depends .
on the size of the banana.
A large banana boosts
energy in the short term,
but has a similar effect to
a sugary snack, so isn't
great for sustained energy.
There's a lot of natural sugar
in bananas and as the fruit
ripens and goes brown, its 7
sugar content develops.
But a small banana that
isn't too ripe provides
more fibre and won't give
you such a sugar rush.
Bananas give you an
energy boost with added
nutrients such as vitamin B6
and potassium which are good
for the central nervous

problems such as
digestive problems and an
increased risk of
cardiovascular disease. One
study of 1,900 men found those
with higher iron stores were
more than twice as likely to
have a heart attack. Excess iron
can also increase free-radical
production. Long term exposure
to excess free radicals is
associated with cell damage,


system, bones and teeth. B6 is
also good for lifting your mood.
But for a more sustained energy
burst, eat a banana with a
wholemeal cracker or bread.
Wholemeal foods contain fibre,
which slows the passage of
food through the digestive
system and makes the energy
release slower.

IRON SUPPLEMENTS
KEEP ENERGY RESERVES
HIGH
Taking iron won't boost
your energy unless you're
anaemic. In excess, iron can lead
to a number of health


premature ageing and
degenerative diseases, such as
cancer, diabetes and arthritis.

DRINKING PLENTY OF
WATER HELPS YOU FEEL
ALERT
Your body needs a certain
amount of water to function
effectively and stay ticking over
on a day to day basis, but it
won't give your body any fuel.
Dehydration can cause extreme
fatigue. People who feel
exhausted sometimes get carried
away thinking they need a
miracle cure when they just need
to drink more.SS


Cancer patients pray,

use herbs, but quietly
NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) Eighty-five per cent of U.S.
cancer patients turn to prayer when they learn they have
cancer, U.S. researchers said.
A study of 750 patients around the country fo6nd thatrnost
use prayer, relaxation techniques, exercise and sometimes herbs
or megavitamins on top of their medical therapies.
"We were a bit surprised by how many people were -using
these techniques," said Jennifer Yates, an information analyst
at the University of Rochester in New York who led the study.
"And we don't really know why they're using then to
beat the cancer or to ease the side effects of treatment. Those
are questions we still have to ask."
Speaking to a meeting of the American Society of Clinical
Oncology meeting in New Orleans, Yates said 85 per cent of
the patients surveyed used prayer as a cancer treatment
technique.
"It's not surprising that people facing serious illnesses pray,
or have others praying for them. They believe it may have a
positive impact on their overall health and well-being," said
Yates, whose work was funded by the National Cancer Institute
and American Cancer Society.
About a .quarter of those surveyed said they used large
doses of vitamins or changed their diets to Improve their
health.

I N THE year 2000,
The Guyana Court
of Appeal rejected
arguments that:
convicted murderer
Sancharie Singh called
'Moai' ought to have been
freed on a legal technicality*
because:
1. The Committal
Magistrate had omitted to ask
the accused whether she wished
to call witnesses in her defence,
and
2. That there was no legal,
basis on which the Director of
Public Prosecutions (DPP)
*could have indicted the.
appellant.
Rejecting the arguments by
appellant's Counsel, Mr.
Doodnauth Singh, S.C., now
Attorney General, the Appellate
Court held: "Where the record
is silent as to whether the'
Learned Magistrate did in fact
comply with Section 66 (1) as
in this case,; then the
presumption of regufaiity
necessarily arises, and can only
be displaced by sworn
.testimony to the contrary.
That Appellate Court
constituted by Chancellor of the
Judiciary, Mr. Cecil Kennard,
and Justices of Appeal Mr.
Lennox Perry and Mr. Prem
Persaud also held that the
learned Director of Public
Prosecutions had acted within
*his authority when he indicted
the appellant for the offence of
accessory before the fact; and
that the magistrate had
sufficient evidence on record
which would have justified him.
in committing the appellant for
trial.


Among other things,- the
facts disclosed that the woman
was charged along with her
daughter Dolly, and Colin
Clarke for the murder of three
deceased persons.
However, at the Preliminary
Inquiry on November 19, 1993,
Colin Clarke who was hired, to
carry out the killing, confessed
to the crime and was committed
-to stand trial before judge and
jury while the appellant and
daughter were discharged at the
P.I.
At his trial, Clarke who had
confessed to the killing pleaded
not guilty to murder but saved
his neck by pleading guilty to
the lesser count of
manslaughter, an offer which
the State accepted. He was
sentenced to 15 years
imprisonment.
But after perusing the
evidence in the depositions
before the magistrate, the then
DPP, Mr. Ian Chang, now a
Justice of Appeal, subsequently
directed the Magistrate -to
reopen the Inquiry with a view
to committing the appellant for
murder and to stand trial at the
next sessions of the High Court.
At her jury trial, Sancharie
pleaded not guilty to murder
and the State used convicted
killer Colin Clarke as the Star
Witness for the Prosecution.
After the prisoner'Colin
Clarke related how he was hired
by Sancharie to kill the three
persons which killings, he
executed without mercy, the
jury believed his story, and
found 'Sancharie guilty as
charged.
"She was sentenced to death
bythe trial judge. It was this
conviction and sentence that she
had appealed against.
The judgment, as delivered
by the Chancellor disclosed that
the appellant had been indicted


on three counts of being an
accessory before the fact to the
offence of the murder.
The particulars of the
-offences are that Singh, between
November, 1991 and May 30,
1992, in the County of
Demeraira, counselled, procured.
and commanded Colin Clarke
called 'Small Boy' to commit
the offence of murder on Kumar
Singh (first count, Rampiarie
Singh, (second count), and
Parbattie Singh (third count).
Chancellor Kennard went .
on to say: "It was the
contention of Senior Counsel
before us that the trial Judge
ought to have upheld the,
motion, to quash the
indictment. He had
contended before us that the
Magistrate, who had
conducted the Preliminary
Inquiry had failed to comply
with Section 66 (1) of the
Criminal Law (Procedure)
Act, Chapter 10:01 of the
Laws of Guyana in that he
had omitted to ask the
appellant whether she had
wished to call any witness.
That section provides:
"After the proceeding
required by the precedin;
section are completed, th-
Magistrate shall ask the accuses
if he wishes to call any witness
"Section 66 '(2): Ever
witness called by the accused
person who testifies to any fac
relevant to the case shall b,
heard, and the deposition shal
be taken, signed an
authenticated in the sam,
manner as the deposition of thi
witness for the prosecution,

UYANA'S US-
based star
ath lete,
Marian Joan
Barnett, kicked off her spikes
and dry-fit gear, and donned
cap and gown to receive her
Bachelor of Science Degree
in General Studies at the
253rd commencement
ceremony of the Louisiana
State University (LSU).
She was among 3,162
graduates- from 42 states in the
US and 62 countries worldwide,
and 57 per cent of whom were
females at the ceremony on
May 21 last. The oldest
graduate was an 83-year-old who
collected his Mass
Communications Degree, 63
years after he left LSU to serve
in WWI1, just three hours shy
of his Diploma. There were also
two 19-year-olds graduating.
President George Bush was
at the ceremony the first time
a sitting president attended an.
LSU graduation exercise. He
spoke at the function and was
conferred with an Honorary


Doctor of Science Degree.
Burnett expressed thanks to
God for "all the opportunities
and successes, and for blessing
me with good health and guiding'
me along the proper path."
In thrilling tones, she agreed
that it was strange that two of
her most memorable experiences
as a student-athlete in the USA
propelled her into the presence
of, as well as earned her general
commendations from, the
American head of state. Burnett
had been part of her college's
Lady Tigers team which was
honoured by Bush at a
Champions' Day ceremony in
Washington two years ago.
"If it is coincidental, I don't
know, but I guess I am just
fortunate and that's special," she
said.
Her one regret though is
that her mother couldn't be at
her graduation ceremony.
"You see, I am the first of
the family this far, and it would
have been a privilege for her to
be here to share these moments,
but I guess what has to be, has
to be. She is my role model and
we were linked in spirit all


along.- the Pisces-born Lmdener
firmly stated between sips of a
warm cup of oatmeal cream.
In a personal phone message,
her mother rued not seeing
Burnett get her credentials, but
echoed the glee of her other
relatives who are "very, very
grateful for all she has achieved
up to now, and we are exited
about her future and the example
she is setting."
The diminutive champion
noted that the initial support
she got, especially from her
family in Guyana helped her
to "stay on the right track to
attain the major triumphs,
today."
"What running has done for
me as a rural Guyanese girl is
nothing short of tremendous. I
wish others to take consolation
from this and realise they too can
achieve in other areas, as well...
the sky is the real limit, not the
tape," she offered.
"Along the way, times have
been bad to the point that you
feel like giving up ... but, I
recognized those were the
challenges that reminded 'if you
want this, you can't stay still',


you got to let go of the fami liar
and aim for newer, better, higher
heights."
Burnett said her parents
instilled in her the zeal to excel
and the need to be able to do the
simple things of life for one's
self.
"With that I was able to take
care of myself in every situation
I found myself."
She noted, however, that it
was difficult handling the
demands of daily training for
three-plus hours; travelling all
over for meets and other
functions; shopping; cooking:
housekeeping, as well as hours
a day of classes, studies and
exams.
"There was little time left to
do anything else. Many days, I
was mentally and physically
drained, but I managed to keep
my sanity," she said.
Though skipping some
queries with a stated desire to
"still keep some things c!'se
to my heart", Burnett g e a


S' MARIAN JOAN BURNETT


films made and acted by one race
from one country, when
everywhere around such a
Georgetown cinema are
neighborhoods filled with
people of several races, or racial
mixtures who would be left our
by the selfish programmes of
such a cinema in their midst, and
therefore feel discouraged from
attending that cinema.
Cinemas are not the same
as ethnic schools or churches
in Guyana. This brings me to
the continued value and
importance of films from
Hollywood and Europe to all
Guyanese; films which
explore a vast diversity of
topics, geographical locations,
cultural co-existence, and


IT SEEMS natural that
someone living in a country
like Guyana, far aware from
places where most movies are
made -whether Hollywood,-
Bollywood, Europe, Africa,
Asia, Latin America should
give some thought to the sort
of movie they would prefer to
see.
It does not really matter
where the movie takes place, or
is made; what matters is that as
a Guyanese citizen who cares
about helping one's nation to
become a better place, a happier,
more contented society to live in,
one should realise that
everyone's exposure to certain
movies more than others, can
help in achieving such a sane,
peaceful, and realistic goal.
Because today's fast-paced
technological media-system -
cable/satellite TV/internet, etc. -
have almost made all sorts of
information and duplicates
available to everyone
simultaneously at the touch of a
key, many people, especially in
gullible developing nations like
Guyana, have lost all sense of
choice and preference for social
values based on a collective
human relevance.
Overwhelmed by the
quantity and diversity of
information they can no receive
via new media systems, many
begin to invent some sort of
higher status, for themselves


based on who can acquire or
experience something first. For
example, there are some who
boast about having a video or
DVD of a new film before the
film can actually appear on a
cinema screen, if ever it does.
Well, this is really amusing, and
downright insulting and
damaging to. the Guyanese
PUBLIC'S right to see hundreds
of diverse new films as they
were made and intended to be
seen FIRST on a cinema screen.
Let me elaborate further on
this. In May 2004 the colourful
historical and dramatic epic film
'Troy' opened. 'Troy' is a film
based on the classical Greek tale
of Helen of Troy, her abduction
etc., and full of passion,
adventure, romance, and
beautiful tropical Greek
seacoasts. A new film in the
tradition of Hollywood's past
exciting epic adventure films, like
'The Vikings' with Kirk Douglas
and Tony Curtis, 'Quo Vadis'
with Robert Taylor, or 'Ben Hur'
with Charleston Heston. Now,
who would PREFER to see an
exciting epic film like 'Troy' on
a TV screen rather than on a
huge cinema screen for which it
was primarily intended to give
COLLECTIVE pleasure?
Similarly, which civic-
minded, public-spirited and
practical Georgetown cinema
owner would prefer to operate
a cinema which showed only

racial intermingling.
Problems and solutions which
emerge from facing such
realities have concerned an
endless multitude of
Hollywood and European
films, and' it is this brave and
generous quality which has
guaranteed their relevance in
the past, present and no doubt,
future to all citizens of North
and South America, the
Caribbean and Europe.
The 2004 Oscars celebrated
the continued importance of the
cinema screen to the public, but
what about the films? Now do
they matter to local audiences?
Some of us like films mainly
because they gain Best Picture
awards, like 'Lord of the Rings',
but others will find more real and
meaningful values to our personal
lives in films like 'Seabiscuit',
'Lost in Translation' and
'Mystic River'. Women and men
will not want to miss powerful
films in the Oscar lineup, like
'Something's gotta give', with
Dianne Keaton and" Jack
Nicholson at their best; 'In
America', about poor
immigrants who hold their family
together against much odds;
'Whale Rider', about a strong
eleven-year-old girls of New
Zealand's Maori people who
challenges traditions that stifle
her personality; 'Thirteen',
about the ex-alcoholic single
mother struggling to live with
dignity and save her daughter
from drugs, shoplifting, deceit, .
etc.; and if course, 'Cold
Mountain' with the outstanding
Renee Zellweger as the down-to-
earth, hardworking Southern girl
who ploughs, kills and cooks
chickens, and shows care and
kindness. 'Cold Mountain' is
definitely the sort of Hollywood
film relevant to the lives of
many rustic rural Guyanese
women of any race.
Other Oscar nominated films
look closely into the egos and
actions of men. Tim Robbins and
Sean Penn in 'Mystic River'
deserve our local attention.
Djimon Hounsou, the West
African actor, excels in 'In
America' as the AIDS-stricken


artist who bonds with a poor
white tenement family, and Alec
Baldwin, one of the best new
American actors who combines
charisma, humour, and intelligent
toughness, is at his chilling best
in 'The Cooler'.
:These are some of the new
must-see films which prove the
continued vital importance of
Hollywood films, and their
ability to find relevance among
Guyanese in all their social and
racial diversity. From new actors
like Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman,
Alex Baldwin, Val Kilmer,
Denzel Washington, Sean Penn,
Tim Robbins, Michael Douglas,
Mel Gibson and the young Sean
Patrick Thomas, comes a
natural, yet forceful style of
acting which hits the human
heart and mind anywhere. Mel
Gibson's newly directed
'Passion of the Christ' a film
about tolerance, Biblical
violence, and Christ's human
message, s the most artistic of
his career.
New actresses like Renee
Zellweger, Helen Hunt, Angelina
Jolie, Ashley Judd, Jennifer
Aniston, Halle Berry, and Scarlet
Johanson, are mixing passionate,.
sensitive, and intelligent qualities
into their roles and this makes
their films of vital human
interest. One of the first recent
forerunners of this acting style
is the reclusive Michelle Pfeiffer,
whose gift rubs off well on Renee
Zellweger, who nevertheless
remains very much herself, a
fresh, brilliant actress who seems
humble enough to keep giving us
her best, as in 'Nurse Betty' a
masterful little film which
shows the absurdity and
potential tragedy of becoming
obsessed fans of unreal trashy
soap operas. 'Nurse Betty' is a
perfect example of those great
new Hollywood films which can
enlighten us about the need to
protect human frailty and
preserve human goodness.
Guyanese citizens have
much enjoyment,
excitement, and human
upliftment awaiting them,
if they are allowed to see
these films.

MUHAMMAD Ali
is now but a
shadow of his
former ebullient self at just
62, and Sugar Ray Leonard
nearly lost his sight in one
ey', all because of injuries
they both sustained to the
head over time during their
long and illustrious careers in
the ring.
And, never mind the strident
calls in some quarters to ban the
sport entirely because of the
sheer brutality of it and the high
incidence of injury leading to
permanent brain damage, even
death, among its practitioners.
Yet still professional boxing is
as glamorous and awe-inspiring
as it was more than a century
ago when the first set of rules
came into force, and is still one
of the most highly-paid sports
as evidenced by the opulent
lifestyles led by many of the
more famous pugilists.

women should be in the ring,"
she said.- "But, again, it's just


that we have to prove ourselves
as women; in everything that we
do, we have to do it twice as
hard."
It's a sentiment that strikes
a chord with First Lady, Varshnie
Jagdeo who feels that women
are just as good as men, if not
better, at anything they put their,
minds to.
"I am fully in favour of
women in not only boxing but
in any sport in which they
choose to compete. I see no
difference between men and
women when it comes to sport,
and if an individual has the
discipline, and the heart to go
into such a sport, I think that
sex is irrelevant," she said
two Saturdays ago in response
to the question of what she
thought about women being
involved in boxing.
As to why she chose boxing
above all the other more
moderate sports, Rivers, who
turns 37 in October, said she
hasn't a clue.
"I don't know what drives
me to be in that sport; it's just
women in sports in general. It's
just a sport....like basketball;
football; hockey or whatever.
Guess, I'm just good at it," she


She had also had to fight her
way through school, so as not to
be taken advantage of.
"As a child going to school,"
she said, "I use to tek beat from
dem big boys than m'self. An
one day I seh hear, dem boys
ain't beating' me no mo'. I gon

She said that many times
when the fight broke out, by the

"I done knock dem out lang

children, among them two sets
of twins, of which she is one,
she herself has five kids of her

Her mother is still alive and
came down from the 'North-
West' to watch her fight for the
first time. Her father, who was
a St. Lucian, she said, died when
she was around five. This is the
fifth year since she has been in
the ring.
The decision to turn pro,
she said, was inspired by a
fight she saw on television.

troops had overrun Berlin and -
met up with other Allied forces
coming from the West and south,
Germany surrendered
As we in Guyana saw while
watching the news and reading
about the impressive/
celebrations in France last
weekend to mark the 60th
anniversary, D-Day is a
significant event. It is
commemorated in England and
Europe with deep emotion and
a knowledge of its profound
military and political
dimensions. This.year's activity
was perhaps the most
memorable, occurring as it did
when so many of the veterans
are -growing old and despite
some persons trying
unsuccessfully .ihey are
completely different) to link the
D-Day landings with the US-led
invasion of Iraq.
To this writer's knowledge,
there were virtually no
Guyanese or Caribbean
servicemen who participated in
the D-Day landings on the first
day. As more troops later came
over 'from England as
reinforcements and, using
France td go onto the European
theatre, they may have come in
as members of British and
Canadian units.
Guyanese and Caribbean
service men and women did,
however,. contribute to the
success of the operations, or
'Operation Overlord' as it
was code named. Aside from
helping defeat the German
Navy's U-boat campaign in
the Caribbean earlier in the
War, hundreds of men and
women from the then British
colonies in then BG and the
circum-Caribbean area
(including British Honduras)
served in Royal Air force
units for example.
Volunteers from India,
Ceylon and other Asian ,
countries also assisted in the
European theatre as well as
in battles against the
Japanese in the Pacific.
Many more people
laboured in the background
training and providing logistical
backup for the invasion.
According to the book 'Why
the Allies Won' (Norton, 1995)
by Richard Overy, almost nine
million tonnes of supplies and
800,000 troops were shipped
over from the United States
between January and June 1944.
Ordinary working Americans,
British and other Allied peoples,
sacrificed and put their all into
the war effort in their fight for
freedom and democracy, or
"righteous cause" and "moral
certainty" as .Overy puts it.


Parents saw off their son-
knowing that they may not se,
them alive again. Indeed, sme1.
170,009 Allied, soldiers .lost
their lives or were wounded ^i
Normandy.
Noted Overy: "Victory (in
Normandy) depended on a
great : many. -things: the
prodigious organisation of
supplies by sea 'and air,
meticulous planning, the solid
virtues of civilian management.
But two explanations stand out
above the rest. The first is
...airpower...and the second
factor was deception (that the
invasion would take place
elsewhere)."
Another of the speakers
at the Barbados ceremony
was Mr. Julian Marryshaw, a
Grenada-born former RAF
pilot whose 193 squadron
helped provide air support for
the landings. Talking with
this writer afterwards, he said
he remembered two
Guyanese who were also
pilots: Dusty Miller, who
later became a Chief Justice
in an African country, and
Ron Hall, later a dentist in
London. Aside from those who
served on the front lines,
many Caribbean people were
aircraft mechanics, nurses
and in other backup fields.
In an inspiring and moving
commemorative address at the
Barbados Legion function and
speaking on behalf of the British
Army, Major General JDC
Graham pointed to three main
reasons why Germany lost the'
overall war. One was the
mammoth material aid from the
United States; secondly the
existence of the English Channel
which prevented the invasion of
the British Isles by German
forces; and thirdly, the
successes of the Red Army of
the Soviet Union on the eastern
front which, he said, "bled the
German army.white".
Major General Graham
praised the Russian people
for their sacrifices (they
suffered millions, of
casualties both military and
civilian) and commended the
presence of the present
President of Russia, Vladimir
Putin at the ceremonies in
France over the weekend."
The retired British Army
officer concluded that those
Nazi. leaders who were put on
trial at Nuremberg after the war
and executed were criminalp
who fully deserved the
treatment they got." Though he
didn't have time to elaborate,
Major General Graham would
probably agree that there were
many more of those conscious,
organised elements who escaped
by hoodwinking U0 forces that
they were providing intelligence
about 'Bolshevism'. The
Russians at Nuremburg
*expressed their concern that so
many criminals had gotten light
prison sentences and/or were
never brought to trial. Over a
third of all Russian prisoners of
war were, for example, executed
by the Germans because they
were deemed racially inferior
Slavs.
On this, the 60th
anniversary of the. j-Day
landings, let us pay tribute to
the brave soldiers wvho went
ashore that day and all those
others who contributed in some
way. Its success meant that
today peoples of all races may
have better opportunities to
deepen our democracy and live
together in peace, friendship
and material well-being.
(Norman Fari is
Guyana's Honorary Consul
in Barbados)

tip on her future, and said
she would like to see herself
competing professionally on
the track for a while "so that
the name Guyana gets more
recognition and creates more
chances ...for other
people(Guyanese)." She
noted this graduation, which
is her second in the US thus
far, also adds to that mission.
Most attendees said while
the graduates' experience was
the big draw, the President's
presence was an extra benefit.


"Not often you get the chance
to see a national track champion
walk, and a head of state talk at
the same graduation," said
Burnett's coach, Mark Elliott,
whose entire family was there
to experience his charge's big
moment.
"We are all happy and
proud of Marian ... She showed
unique resilience and discipline
to seal another achievement," he
said.
From a band of LSU
student-athletes, Burnett was
showered with laudatory
sentiments. Junior, Ruth
Nanyinza of Zambia, was in a


celebratory dance of joy when
she said she was guided by
Burnett since they met in
Kansas in 2000.
"Marian has worked hard
for herself and others, and
inspired me to a lot of good
decisions. Since I knew her, she
is a blessing as a friend."
"Marian set the benchmarks
for us to follow ... she is a true
leader, and I am even more
proud at this time knowing we
share the same Caribbean
heritage. You go, girl," said
roommate Hazelann Regis of
Grenada. Regis, like Burnett, is

Year awardee, having also gained
her country's honours in 2003.
Another colleague, LSU's
800m record holder Jeff Fisher
of Louisiana was unusually
spry as he posed in snapshots
with his fellow graduate. "We go
back a long way, but now we
can go real far ... yo' Marian
thanks for waking me up," he
said, referring to the steady
espousing he got from Burnett
to do his best.
And, St. Lucian native
William L. Felicien who also
graduated in the Class of 2004
recalled meeting Burnett in 2001
and the efforts they made to
acquaint themselves and fit into
their new environment. He said
many times they aided each
other to overcome the initial
solitude of being the only
students from their respective
countries at LSU.
"We reminisced a lot on life
in Guyana, and that surely
boosted our confidence in this
part of the world," noted
Felicien, who had spent time in
Guyana in the early 90s
attending the Guyana School of
Agriculture. "One thing I can
say is that I am richer for
knowing Marian, and boy, she
cooks a great grub!"
The outstanding student-
athlete received messages from
other quarters, including Foreign
Service Director Elizabeth
Harper in Guyana, Indra
Persaud of the Guyana
Consulate in New York,
entrepreneurs Edgar Henry of
New York and George Samuels
of Washington, sports agent
Tom Ratcliffe in Boston,
newspaper journalist Michelle
Sheridan in California, and her
former boss and mentor, ex-
Commissioner of Police and
National Sports Commission
Chairman Laurie Lewis.


In long distance
commendations from Lewis in
Guyana, Burnett was
congratulated on two fronts.
"You have set and attained
milestones and glory for
yourself; continue in good stead
and serve to inspire us all. We
stand as proud Guyanese
besides you, this is twice the
Congratulations," Lewis said in
obvious reference to Burnett's
graduation and her recent
impressive Olympic
qualification. Whilst heading the
Force, Lewis was behind two
promotions for the young police
woman. Once with an on-the-
spot upgrade during superlative
record-setting performances at
the Joint Services
Championships in 1998; and
again in 2000 when she returned
home as one of four guests-of-
honour of the inaugural Fitness
Expo.
In a congratulatory email to
Burnett, IAAF Athlete
representative Keith Basdeo
who coached her just before she
left Guyana, said "Wow!! You
did it Marian!! You have more
to show and achieve. Keep the
flag flying high, and Good Luck
the rest of the season."
Meanwhile, on June 1st, 11
days after her graduation,,
Burnett returned to the track
and lowered her national record
at 800m. Astonishingly, she
recorded 1:59.47s to better the
old mark by more than seconds
on her season opener at the Mt
SAC Relays (2:01.65s) almost
five weeks ago. It was only the
second race for her outdoor
season which had been
restricted in recent times due to
acute attention to classes and
graduation responsibilities. The
Guyanese star had to pass-up
appearances twice in Brazil, and
once in the Dominican Republic,


Jamaica and Qatar.
Apart from the new national
record, she also becomes the 3rd
fastest South American woman
ever; the 7th woman from the
Caribbean, Central and South
America to ever break two-
minute barrier, and the time was
the 2nd fastest woman at 800m
in the world this year. It was the
fourth time in only five events
this year that she had broken a
national record at 800m; two
times each indoors and
outdoors.
Burnett said she learnt of
the May 29 victory by
Guyanese woman pugilist
Gwendolyn 'Stealth Bomber'
O'Neil, and was further
inspired to keep the Golden
Arrowhead outstretched.
"I am so happy for
Gwennie, you don't know! I
think we both compete against
serious odds ... and it's
awesome to represent and show
what Guyanese women are
capable of," she remarked.
On the inside, Burnett is
also in the final phase of classes
Statistics to conclude credits
for another degree in Sociology
(minor: Criminology), and is
arranging to be available to
graduate in a few months. She
already has an Associate Degree
in Physical Science from Essex
County College in New Jersey,
and a Director's cup ana
medallion for Student-Athlete's
academic excellence from LSU.
After three years at LSU,
the Guyana Sportswoman of
the Year is reservedly excited
about her progress. "I am
grateful to God and all who
gave a least a crystal of sugar
to sweeten my endeavours
over the years, but I still have
brews to taste. It's tough, but it
brings out my best... I am ready
for the haul," she stated.

overweight is one of the most
serious factors that can cause
high blood pressure and if
you are overweight you
should try to reduce your
weight to within the healthy
weight range.
If you ha-e

pressure and 719
you are
overweight, it is
even more
important that
you reduce your
weight, and if )ou
are not overweight.
it is advisable to ,
ensure that Nour
diet is low in fal to
limit or reduce the
risks of heart and
blood vessel disease.
Such a diet would
include eating lean meat,
chicken, fish, peas and beans,
fruits, vegetables and staples'
You may also want to use:
skimmed milk instead of regular,
milk, and cut down on the:
amount of cheese, butter, eggs,
peanuts, avocado and cooking.;.
oil that you might ordinarily,
.eat. Some fatty foods, such as
corned pork, pig's tail and'-,
corned beef, also contain large
amounts of fat and salt. These'
foods should certainly be
avoided. So-called fast foods are'
particularly bad for you; they
usually contain large amounts of
fat and salt.
A sedentary lifestyle is also
an important contributor to.
obesity and therefore to high
blood pressure. Therefore'
regular physical activity should
be recommended to all those
who want to prevent or mange
high blood pressure. Discussing
with your doctor the best type
of exercise that suits you is
always recommended before
you start a new type of
activity.

commonly used in other food

amounts of salt can lead to

family history of hypertension,
a relatively h!gh salt diet can


increase the risk of developing
high blood pressure. Infants and
young children in such families
should learn to get along on a

an age as possible. Breast
Smilk, for example, has
less salt than cow's

might be, an
important
beginning in a

Appetite for
salt is acquired.
Human beings,
even those
who do
heavy work
in hot

need very
little salt to survive.
Modt of us eat about two
tea poonsful of salt per day, on
thq average. We could probably
easily get along, regardless of our
occupation or activities, on less
than half a teaspoonful a day.
Unfortunately, once
hypertension develops, a
moderate reduction of salt in the
diet, Without other treatments,

ARIES There are no questions, only answers. You're beyond positive. You're
beyond confidence. You're absolutely certain, and you never felt more in control
of your place on the planet. It's time to spread your influence outward.
Reposition yourself and redefine your role by how you interact with others.
Personal relationships will surely lead to new beginnings. Professional
contacts open the doors to places that you need to access. The moment may
pass, and that's why you should use it while it's here. Power like this is a gift,
not a right. Be grateful that the stars chose you this time.
TAURUS -- Yoru've been through this a million times, and you're getting tired of
hearing your own thoughts driving that big, creaking mill wheel through yet
another cycle. Luckily, other people think that you're the least boring person
they know. Find someone that could benefit from your help. Apply yourself to
that problem for a while. This person's business is as important to him or her
as yours is to you. Once you've made a difference elsewhere, the favour will
be returned. You'd love to hear what new lines of thought fresh minds would
lend to your own circular dilemma.
GEMINI You're thinking big. You cast your attention in many directions, hauling
in new options for consideration each time. Be open to new alliances.
Investigate and extrapolate what these people can do for you. At the same
time, watch out for any version of the future that eclipses the present. What's
tangible here and now is the best working definition of reality. In the end, who
you are is more important than what you can do for someone.-As for what he
or she can do for you, that should be the icing on the cake instead of the main
course.
CANCER Your standing is about to improve, if it hasn't already done so. Your
move up may involve a struggle, either with your family or with forces at work.
Fame, even if minor, may not come without friction. Thankfully, you feel stronger
and more independent than ever right now. Use this to your advantage when
asked to prove a point or to make a statement based on an observation. This
may be the time to start something in which you believe. Take the time to have
the hard facts to back up your plans which may be led by emotions.
LEO -- You're focused on pleasure. You're geared up for playing. Whatever
your senses register is worth experiencing. Set aside anything serious if you
canrt give it your full attention. It would be a shame to do less than your usual
perfect job because your mind happens to be elsewhere. You're a creature of
action and energy taking on all that life has to offer. You're likely to exhaust
yourself long before you exhaust the possibilities, which is just fine with you.
There will be so many reasons to get up and do it all over again tomorrow.
VIRGO -- Moderation is crucial to your strategy. When you havc to handle certain
sensitive matters on your own, nothing can be left to chance. State your case
once and only once. Others won't be moved by repetition alone. Let your impact
sink in instead of blunting your edge with too much of a good thing. Override
impulse with careful premeditation. If your body needs to feel the power of
physical activity, get thee to the gym or wherever you work out.
LIBRA -- Enough is enough. Your head is full of words and ideas. Your ears
keep receiving data long after you can process it. What you need is a short
break from human noise and activity. Even the people you love could disappear
for a while before you missed them. If you can't get everyone to leave you alone,
go to a private place and shut the door or get out for a walk. Everyone will
benefit from a few minutes of quiet time, and a change of scenery might be
exactly what you need. Self-care is a completely acceptable excuse.
SCORPIO -- You were eager for things to get up to speed. Well, they did, but
that wasn't the end of it. Now events are moving faster than you'd like. Where's
the happy medium? To reach that point, you have to determine whether the
pressure is coming from some external source or whether you're responsible.
It helps to start at the beginning rather than in the middle. If you have to give
up some ground, the sacrifice will be worth it. Look at the long-term picture,
and you'll see that you're doing exactly what you should be doing.
SAGITTARIUS Noione could call you shy. Your cosmic profile doesn't exactly
suggest a private person, Still, there must be a reason why you're trying to
hide your inner blaze from someone. Don't bother. The person who's looking
for it can see right through you. Give in to temptation. Live in the moment. When
this kind of passion visits your life, the delight it! brings you, it's almost too
much to handle.,
CAPRICORN A balance between personal and public lifd may need to be
worked out right nowi You might have to give yourself some personal time
rather than spending all your free time thinking about outstanding
responsibilities. Discipline is a good thing, but don't get anxious with worry.
There may be delays qnd people may be late. Have patience and compassion
for those that nave problems being on time. Some folks may not be there on
the dot, but they provide the world with other things besides punctuality. Stop
worrying; it gives you wrinkles!
AQUARIUS You nee4 to talk. Your ferment of great ideas explodes in a fountain
of words. Find a receptive human audience, and you'll feel immeasurably wise
and exciting. As much as you have to give, dispense your energy in small
bursts. Let a conversation develop so that your companion feels as if he. or
she is getting fair treatment. This could be an exchange of wisdom if you turn
it into a two-way street.
PISCES Give yourself the gift of a really good daydream. Wrap it up in fancy
paper and tie it with a big bow. You may surprise even yourself when you get
around to opening it. The fantasy of extravagance or revenge is just as good
as the real thing. Paint the pictures in your head and then revel in them, using
the frivolous feelings that are swirling in your mind. Get a wild idea out of your
system, and then return to the world of responsible behavior. Enjoy the time
away. and your. return will be that much more welcomed.

Milk Fever gestation (pregnancy).


In high producing dairy
cattle, this aliment is serious. In
dogs, when Milk Fever (or
Eclampsia as it is sometimes
called) occurs, the animal can die
within a day or two after the
onset. 'Milk Fever' is
associated with a low calcium
level in the blood. It hits
especially small dogs (Toy
Breeds) which have given birth
to large litters. Of course, this
condition can occur in any breed
of dog. The many puppies, in
suckling away relatively large
quantities of milk, extract
inordinate amounts of calcium
from the mother. The calcium
regulatory mechanism which
mobilizes body calcium (from
the bone) to compensate cannot
cope with such an abundant
calcium loss, especially if there
is no corresponding dietary
intake of calcium.

During the first week or so,
when the pups from the small
breeds are still tiny, large
quantities of calcium are not
extracted. Later, as they reach
the age of 2-3 weeks, the loss
is just too much and there is a
great drain on the calcium
reservoirs in the mother's body.
Because of this dip in the
calcium levels in the blood, this
malady is known as
Hypocalcaemia.

Although this problem
usually coincides with heavy
lactation, it has been known to
occur (rarely) during late


SYMPTOMS

The first signs of the 'Milk
Fever' are restlessness (pacing
up and down) and
hyperventilation (rapid
breathing). Disorientation often
accompanies the ailment. The
bitch further shows her
discomfort by groaning/whining
and exhibiting a look of anxiety.
Soon thereafter, the muscles
begin to twitch.. The spasms
lead to a stiffness of the
extremities (that's w'hy this
disease is also known as
Puerperal Tetany. Because of
the leg rigidity, the animal has a
straight-(stiff)-legged gait. It is
about this time the bitch's body
temperature elevates itself to as
high as 106* F. She goes down *
on her side and begins to paddle
with her legs. Prolonged seizure
activity may cause cerebral
damage. Vomiting, increased
salivation and a rising of the
heart rate'are also associated
with this phase of the ailment.

The nerve reactions, which
are exhibited in cramps and
spasms, tend to cause the skin
on the forehead to contract into
folds. The animal has a worried
look. Add to that, the pulling

CURRY POWDER of the kind sold commercially, represents an attempt by British
.(originally, and still primarily) manufacturers to provide in ready-made form a spice'.
mixture corresponding to those used in Southern India. A mixture in Southern India, .1
likely to include also coriander, cumin and mustard seeds; red and black pepper;
fenugreek;, and turmeric with possible additions of cinnamon and cloves and cardamom,
and channa dal (split chickpeas). All these are roasted and ground to a powder. The.
powder is freshly prepared when needed. Commercial mixtures had been available to
cooks in Britain from late in the 18th century but seem not to have been a common article
of commerce until later. Such mixtures, then subsequently, have varied considerably but
have usually contained many or most of the ingredients mentioned above (except
cardamom, which has hardly ever been used). In recent times, increased awareness of
what Indian cooking in its authentic form is like has created a demand in Britain for curry
powders which bear a closer relationship to it. However, the uses to which the powders
are put in western countries uses which stem back to Anglo-Indian cookery do not,
generally speaking, correspond to Indian practices.

NEW YORK (Billboard) Hip-hop culture is saturating the
mainstream through music and marketing.
Companies have awakened to the genre's selling power, and as
rap stars pitch soft drinks, athletic shoes, apparel, automobiles and
beer, cross-promotions are born almost daily.
"Companies are just realising because it is contributing to their
bottom line in a major way," says Jameel Spencer, chief marketing
officer of Bad Boy Entertainment
Spencer, who is also president of independent agency Blue Flame
Marketing and Advertising, says cross-promotions are "coming from
as small a relationship as a product mention in a song to something
revolutionary like Jay-Z owning a sneaker with Reebok."
Corporations "finally realized the power of hip-hop music on the com-
munity and the world," rappedactor Ludacris says. "It's done nothing but
get bigger and expand to become the popular music of today."
But hip-hop has been serving unofficial product pitches since
Run-D.M.C. praised 'My Adidas' in 1986.
"Long before corporate America started cashing in and under-
standing the power of the hip-hop voice, you had a person like Biggie
or Lil' Kim screaming out all these designer labels," says Shawn Prez,
CEO of New York-based guerrilla marketing firm Power Moves and
a former Bad Boy executive.
"This hip-hop voice it's loud, it's results-oriented," he adds.
Entrepreneur Russell Simmons spearheaded hip-hop culture's
move to the mainstream with Def Jam Records in the '80s.


Since then, he has expanded his business into management, mar--
keting, apparel, theater, TV, jewelry and financial services. In Febru-
ary, Simmons sold his Phat Fashions empire to apparel giant Kellwood
for $140 million.
Bad Boy Records founder Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs' apparel line,
Sean John, is also growing. The six-year-old, multimillion-dollar com-
pany will open its first free-standing store in June.
Jay-Z and his Roc-a-Fella Records partner Damon Dash spun
off their own clothing company in 1999. Rocawear raked in about
$300 million last year, according to Dash.
The S. Carter Collection, Jay-Z's joint venture with Reebok, set
the industry abuzz by becoming the sneaker company's fastest seller.
Jay-Z and Dash also purchased Armadale Vodka.

VANISHED BOUNDARIES
Marketing experts agree that Simmons, Combs, Jay-Z and Dash
have shown corporate America that hip-hop can generate dollars
outside the music business.
Hip-hop stars define what's cool for fans, naming such brands as
Cristal, Gucci, Cadillac and Hennessey in lyrics and liner notes and
showcasing those brands in videos.
Simmons says that when a person comes out of poverty, "you
know what the American dream has to offer, because you study it. So
they're very good at picking luxury and mainstream products, be-
cause they study it and they love it. They're excited about it."
That excitement generates sales. Some 45.3 million consumers
worldwide spend $12.6 billion annually on hip-hop media and mer-


chandise, according to Simmons Lathan Media Group, the media-
content company Simmons co-owns.
Once dismissed as having limited mainstreamappeal and buying power,
hip-hop is now the hottest selling tool in the Madison Avenue arsenal.
LL Cool J, Eve, Missy Elliott, G-Unit, Ludacris, Baby, Nelly,
Baby Bash and Funkmaster Flex are just some of the acts connected
to a variety of products.
Why has the trend suddenly exploded? Because rap's appeal is
now universal.
"Hip-hop is not a side category anymore," notes Ayiko Broyard,
a marketing executive who helped Reebok create tie-ins with 50 Cent,
Mary J. Blige and OutKast's Big Boi. "There used to be a strong line
- if you were a hip-hopper, you didn't listen to Kid Rock and you
didn't skateboard. There are no lines anymore."
Prez agrees. "I don't care if you're Asian, I don't care if you're of
European descent. The same kids that are listening to Kom or Fred
Durst will go and pick up the new SnooplDogg or 50 Cent CD. This
is the hip new thing, this hip-hop culture."
And that culture has seeped into suburban enclaves and corpo-
rate offices, says Morris L. Reid, CEO of Washington, D.C.-based
Blue Fusion, a youth marketing agency.
"There's nothing going on in hip-hop today that wasn't
going on when Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin and the pio-
neers kicked the doors down," Reid says. "The difference is,
the CEOs and senior execs are going home and seeing all this
hip-hop culture happening in their own community. And they're
getting comfortable with it."
