Members of the Centre of
Brazilian Studies on Church
Street re-enact a scene from
the traditional quadrilha, the
theatrical dance which tells
about a marriage in a
small-town.
The dance, which bears
a close resemblance to the
French quadrille from which
it originated, is part of the
annual Festas Juninas
(June Festival) activities
celebrated throughout Brazil
and observed yesterday on
the grounds of the local
Brazil Mission. The
festivities also honour
Saints Anthony, John and

by Jaime Hall
FAYE Grenville's husband,
who flew in from Barbados
Jast week, is of the opinion
that his wife's death was as a
result of a combination of
fatigue, stress and
"foolishness", but wants to

Widower says wife's

down to the bottom of this
matter to let every thing
come to light. She had no
demon when she fall ill with
nervous breakdowns. While I
was here, I pull her through
it and she was well again,"
the man told the Sunday
Chronicle,
He said yesterday that his
wife's demise was due to
"foolishness". The man who
knew her for 27 years said that
while he has no problem with
people praying for his wife
because of her illness, the
persons who had her in their
care should have taken her for
medical attention.
The husband believed


that it was a clear case of
fatigue from stress and
maybe other things she had
to deal with while with the
church members that led to
her death.
When the woman was taken
into the care of her fellow
church members, relatives and
other people in the
neighbourhood were very
concerned about her having to
stay at the church building.


The Holy Ghost Ground
Church building is an
incomplete concrete structure
that has no proper ventilation
and, according to people
living nearby, is
"inadequately built to keep
any sick person".
Another source close to the
Grenvilles, told the Chronicle
that the church members tried
to keep everyone who inquired
about the woman's condition, in

the dark.
"Sometimes the church
people would tell the daughter
that she mother deh at Wisroc"-
a housing area about two miles
away from where the church is
located.
However, people in the area
believed otherwise. Several
persons in the neighbourhood
complained about unusual
noises coming from the church
building during the day and also
late at nights, to a point that
those living close to the church'
could not sleep.
"All we does hear is like
when you beating somebody...
and Faye does be crying like
when you beating a child. This
noise does be really disturbing,"
a Cholmondeley Hill resident
recounted.
She continued: "We had
to be curious about what was
happening because we know
she was there. Every day you
could hear her voice getting
weaker and weaker until we
hear nothing more... Then at
the end, a car pull up and
reverse in the yard the
...morning and went away".
The resident said she believe
it was Grenville's body the
car took away.
Following Grenville's
death, police at Linden had
detained three women for
questioning. One was the
Pastor of the Holy Ghost
Ground Church. 'But no one
has been charged. Police
removed from the church, a
mattress, persons believed
Grenville had been lying on
while in the building. They -i.
also took away a number of
utensils.
Her body was handed over
to the Police and was taken
Georgetown for the post
mortem examination. It is
currently at Sandy's Funeral
Home, the relative said.
A post mortem examination
is due to be conducted
tomorrow.
Grenville is to be buried
on Tuesday at Linden,
relatives said.


INVESTIGATIONS into the
remigrant duty free
concessions vehicle seam
have not reached the stage
where charges could be made
against officers of either the
Ministries of Foreign Affairs
or Finance, remigrants or
other persons involved in the
scheme.
Head of the Presidential
Secretariat (HPS), Dr. Roger
Luncheon at his weekly press
briefing last Friday indicated
that the probe is ongoing with
different agencies focusing on
varying aspects of the
investigations.
The police force, he said, is
focusing on identifying the basis
for irregular provisions of duty
free concessions such as bribery
and forgery, while the Guyana
Revenue Authority (GRA) is
paying attention to instances
where concessions were
unlawfully granted.
However, the HPS noted
that the remigration scheme is
now a feature of Statutes and is
in force, whereby the terms and
conditions for granting duty free
concessions are clearly spelt
out.
The Commissioner General
of the GRA handed over a report
of the investigation ordered by
President Bhairat Jagdeo into
irregularities discovered in the
ad& .iistration of the ,'r.aniing of
duty free coniice n...nto
remigrants under the vehicles
sci. mie.
The report dealt with duty
free concessions granted to 86


re-migrants in August last year,
31 of which satisfied the
qualifying criteria, consequently,
the President ordered that 55 of
the vehicles be seized.
The GRA's report has also
identified a series pf deliberate
acts by public officers who
violated the required criteria in
the process, as well as
negligence by other public
officers who authorised the
granting of duty free
concessions.
A number of public officers,
including the Secretary to the
Treasury, have been sent on
leave pending investigations into
the scam.
Prior to the Fiscal
Amendment Act of 2003, duty-
free concessions to re-migrants
were granted by the Ministry of
Finance in accordance with
Section 12 of the Customs Act
Chapter 82:01 and Section 18 of
the Consumption Tax Act,
Chapter 80:02.
However, under the new
Act, which came into being from
September 1 last, the GRA is
now tasked with the
responsibility of granting these
letters.
The Ministry of Finance
is now responsible for issuing
an advisory letter to the GRA
stating that the person
requesting duty-free
concession is qualified. In
addition, the Ministry issues
six original 'advisory letters,
signed by the Secretary to
the Treasury, one each of
which is sent to the
Commissioner General of
the GRA, the Auditor
General, Licence Revenue
Department. One is retained
for record-keeping purposes.

(GINA) Government is
tracking the delivery of the
pumps procured by the
National Drainage and
Irrigation Board (ND&IB) to
be installed at Fyrish/
Gibraltar and Hogstye/
Lancaster, Region Six (East
Berbice/Corentyne).
Head of the Presidential
Secretariat and Cabinet
Secretary Dr. Roger Luncheon
Friday at a media briefing said
that the pumps have already
been procured, but have not yet
been delivered by the overseas
supplier. He noted that through
the ND&IB, .efforts are being
made to track the status of the
delivery of the two mobile
pumps.
In March, Cabinet gave its
'no-objection' to the award of
the contract to procure the
mobile pumps from overseas.
The-- contract was
advertised through the National
Drainage and Irrigation Board
and awarded after the National










m elCPbicHldy

Ac Cate 9:7


Tendering Process. The cost
was $29,840,000.
However, because the
pumps are not available in
Guyana and have to be imported
from the US, they have not been
installed as yet, According to the
ND&IB the contractor was
contacted recently for an update
and it is expected that the
pumps will be here shortly.
Upon arrival, they will take
three weeks to install.
Dr. Luncheon noted that
works are ongoing at present to
prepare the sites -and ensure
they are ready for installation
when the pumps arrive.
The May/June rainy
season in Guyana hit
communities hard and this
resulted in flooding.
Although there are existing
pumps in Region Six, the
volume of water in the areas
made it impossible for


flooding to be averted.
However, efforts were made
through the Ministry of
Agriculture via the ND&IB,
GUYSUCO, and the
Regional Democratic
Council, to ease flooding.
The mobile pumps
installation is a project being
executed by the Depressed
Communities Needs Committee,
one of the six announced in a
joint statement by President
Bharrat Jagdeo and Leader of
the Opposition Mr. Desmond
Hoyte after their second meeting
on April 25, 2001, in the agreed
dialogue process.
Under a seven-point Terms
of Reference, the Depressed
Community Needs Committee
was established and co-chaired
by Government Representative
Ms. Philomena Sahoye-Shury
and Opposition Representative
and Parliamentarian Mr. Andy

UOA I Deadly Falluja


airstrike targeted


Sk I Al Qaeda network


A U.S. plane fired missiles at a house in the restive Iraqi city of
Falluja yesterday, killing 22 Iraqis, witnesses and hospital officials said.
They said the victims were crushed under the rubble after two missile
strikes demolished the house. (Reuters Graphic)


FALLUJA, Iraq
(Reuters) The U.S.
military said an
airstrike in the Iraqi
city of Falluja which
killed about 20 people
yesterday had targeted
a safehouse for fighters
led by Abu Musab al-
Zarqawi, a militant ac-
cused of links to al
Qaeda.
Brigadier Gen-
eral Mark Kimmitt said he
did not dispute Iraqi ac-
counts that around 20
people were killed in the
strike.
He said there
was "significant intelli-
gence" members of
Zarqawi's Muslim mili-
tant network were in the


U.S.
house, but there was no evi-
dence that he himself was
there.
The U.S. military
has said Jordanian-born
Zarqawi has played a major
role in bombing attacks in
Iraq and maintained a net-
work in Falluja, the
country's most rebellious
town.
The airstrike on
Falluja left victims crushed
under rubble after two mis-
sile strikes demolished the
house, witnesses said.
Relatives brought
22 bodies for burial to a cem-

Old rivalries take shine off EU Charte


By John Chalmers

BRUSSELS (Reuters) Tri-
umph over the EU's adoption
of a landmark constitution
fizzled out yesterday after
leaders of the 25-nation bloc
returned home fuming with
each other and deadlocked
over who to select as Euro-
pean Commission chief.
The row over who
should succeed Italian Romano
Prodi as Commission head in
November laid bare old rival-
ries, with France and Germany


once more at odds with Britain
and others which dislike their
federalist vision of European
Union integration.
Nevertheless, the ac-
cord on new rules for a union of
450 million citizens now strad-
dling the former Iron Curtain
was a welcome relief for leaders
who suffered' a wave of public
apathy and euroskepticism in
last week's European Parliament
elections.
"Today is great day for
Europe," declared former French
President Valery Giscard

d'Estaing who chaired the
convention that drew up the text
of the constitution after a deal
was clinched on Friday at the
end of a two-day Brussels sum-
mit.
But after two years of
tortuous negotiations on a char-
ter whose aim is to make the
bloc's institutions less complex,
less remote and easier for citi-
zens to understand, the leaders
now face the even tougher task
of selling it to their publics.
A rejection by any one
of several member states due to
hold referendums on the consti-
tution could sink it for good.
British Prime Minister
Tony Blair hailed the treaty in
Brussels as a good deal for Brit-
ain after he won a rearguard
battle to preserve national ve-
toes on key policy areas.
But he will have his
work cut out back home to win
a referendum probably late
next year because, as the EU
elections underlined, British
euroskepticism is running high.
"Mr Blair and other


European leaders, revealing the
yawning chasm between our
ruling elites and the voters they
consistently treat with con-
tempt, are now pushing the EU
dramatically further along the
path to a single superstate,"
Britain's Daily Mail tabloid
said.

TWO CAMPS

Polish Prime Minister
Marek Belka, who also claimed
success in Brussels, was blasted
by the -powerful right-wing op-
position yesterday for giving
ground on Polish voting power
and failing to secure a reference
in the treaty to Europe's Chris-
tian roots.
Some Polish newspa-
pers said Belka who faces a
parliamentary vote of confi-
dence next week had done the
best he could for the EU's big-
gest newcomer, but the right-
wing Zycie was scathing: "What
did our partners give up? Noth-
ing."
The Vatican said it

Falluja residents say
U.S. troops have deployed
hardline tactics in the town that
have killed scores of civilians and
created new enemies.
Iraqis dug through the
rubble of the flattened house,
looking for survivors of
yesterday's strike.
.At Falluja Martyr's
Cemetery, town residents set up
a row of 22 graves covered by
cement slabs in keeping with the
Muslim tradition of quick burial.
"They brought us 22
corpses, children, women and
youth," said cemetery worker
Ahmed Hassan.

The Brussels summit
will be remembered for its de-
livery on a constitution that
was killed by a bust-up over
voting rights six months ago and
then resurrected under the skil-
ful presidency of Irish Prime
Minister Bertie Ahern.
But it also exposed a
battle for supremacy between
opponents and backers of the
U.S.-led Iraq war, broadly sup-
porters of a more federal EU and
those who want a Europe of
nation states.
Blair and several other
leaders blocked the Franco-Ger-

ers have said pacifying Falluja,
one of Iraq's most rebellious cit-
ies, is crucial for stabilising Iraq
as the U.S. occupation formally
ends on June 30 and sovereignty
is handed over to a new Iraqi in-
terim government.
In April, hundreds of
Iraqis were killed in fierce fight-
- ing between U.S. Marines and
guerrillas in Falluja, 32 miles west
of Baghdad.
A truce was later
agreed, under which an Iraqi force
was put in charge of security in
the city.

ing as someone asked him how
many members of his family
were killed.
"I don't know. Maybe
10," he said

Patten.
Several delegations
voiced anger at French President
Jacques Chirac's insistence that
the successful contender should
come from a- country with long
EU experience that was in all
the main European policy initia-
tives, notably the euro single
currency and Schengen open-
border area.
That would rule out
anyone from Britain, Ireland,
Denmark, Sweden and the 10
mainly East European states
which joined on May 1, reunit-
ing Europe after its Cold War
division.
Furious, Blair lashed
out at France and Germany, tell-
ing them they did not run Eu-
rope alone or with some inner
circle.
Patten's spokes-
woman said yesterday he had
pulled out of the race for the
top EU job. That left no clear
frontrunner and a headache
for Ahern who has promised
to seek an agreement on the
vexed issue before his presi-
dency of the EU ends on June
30.

AIDS treatment: Striving for universal


WASHINGTON, D.C. -TO-
DAY Latin America and the
Caribbean lead the develop-
ing world in providing HIV/
AIDS treatment, accounting
for more than half of all
people on antiretrovirals in
developing countries, accord-
ing to the Pan American
Health. Organisation
(PAHO).
These life-saving drugs
have changed the face of AIDS,
and the region is striving to pro-
vide universal access to them,
according to 'Casting the AIDS
Lifeline', an article in the latest
issue of PAHO's magazine,
'Perspectives in Health'.
In Latin America and
the Caribbean there are an esti-
.mated 210,000 HIV/AIDS pa-
tients receiving antiretroviral
treatment, 55 per cent of the to-
tal number of people believed to
be in need of treatment in the
region. In Africa, by compari-


access in the Americas


son, only 100,000 or two per
cent of some 4.4 million people
who need them are receiving
these drugs.
Public health advo-
cates acknowledge that there re-
main frustrating delays in get-
ting treatment to those who
need it, but they say the
achievements so far reflect a
growing commitment to provid-
ing universal access to
antiretroviral therapy.
"Today, every country
in our region has HIV/AIDS pa-
tients on antiretroviral treat-
ment," says Carol Vlassoff, head
of the HIV/AIDS programme at
the Pan American Health
Organisation. "There's a new
consensus that everyone in our
region who needs AIDS therapy
should have access."
To support this pro-


cess, PAHO is spearheading a
regional initiative over the next
year and a half to increase the
number of people receiving
AIDS therapy in Latin America
and the Caribbean by
174,000-the number currently
believed to need treatment but
who still lack access. The effort
falls within the framework of
the '3 by 5' initiative, launched
by the World Health
Organisation (WHO) in late
2003 with the goal of providing
antiretroviral treatment to three
million people in the develop-
ing world by the end of 2005.
It also-supports the Millennium
Development Goals and an-
swers the call by heads of state
at the recent Summit of the
Americas to treat 600,000 HIV/
AIDS patients throughout the
Americas by 2005.


States and Europe. Middle in-
come countries including Argen-
tina, the Bahamas, and Brazil
have seen as much as a 50 per
cent drop in death rates from
AIDS after only a few years of
treatment. But in the world's
poorest countries, especially in
Africa, AIDS deaths have contin-
ued to climb along with new in-
fections.
Most Latin American
and Caribbean countries focused
their early anti-AIDS efforts on.
prevention, viewing
antiretrovirals as largely out of
reach.
A notable exception to
this rule was Brazil, which re-
sponded to its spreading AIDS
epidemic with a comprehensive
strategy that incorporated -both
prevention and treatment, includ-
ing universal access to free


lower prices with brand-name
manufacturers. While Brazil is
one of the few countries in the
region with the technical and
manufacturing base necessary
to produce its'own drugs, other
countries have followed its
lead in negotiating with drug
makers to lower antiretroviral
prices with support from
PAHO/WHO and the Joint
United Nations Programme on
HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).
Still the estimated cost
per year of treating HIV/AIDS
patients can be staggering. A
number of countries have been
absorbing these costs through
their national health budgets
and World Bank loans, but
smaller and lower-income coun-
tries have had to seek other ex-
ternal sources of funding.
One of the most im-
portant of these is the $4.7 bil-
lion Global Fund for AIDS,
Tuberculosis and Malaria,
launched in 2002 to channel
public and private donations to


also financed AIDS treatment in
Haiti and Guyana and pledged
$1 billion in general funds to the
Global Fund for Aids, Tubercu-
losis and Malaria.
Despite these positive
developments, activists com-
plain that the process of ex-
panding treatment has moved
too slowly. Carol Vlassoff, head
of PAHO's AIDS programme,
observes that, following the suc-
cess of drug price negotiations,
technical, bureaucratic and medi-
cal hurdles still need to be over-
come and are top priorities for
PAHO.
Viassoff and others in-
volved in the '3 by 5' initiative
acknowledge that universal ac-
cess to antiretrovirals is an am-
bitious goal. "But this is a goal

A question.


of fairness

FOR all of its own problems and challenges,
the United States government still finds it relevant
not only to speak against the scourge of human
trafficking, but to identify countries it claims to be
violators and to warn them against punitive sanc-
tions that include denial of economic aid.
No one should be angry with the USA for
engaging in the exposure of this crime against hu-
manity. Human trafficking must not be condoned
in any form or anywhere -either for sexual exploita-
tion or as a source of cheap labour.
Nor should the American authorities be up-
set with criticisms by governments of countries that
exercise their right to question the assessment of
the US State Department Report as it affects them
by a unilateral and unfair assessment.
Border neighbours Guyana and Venezuela
have been swift to question the accuracy of the State
Department Report, in particular the controversial


Tier-3 grading that opens a country, accused as a
defaulter, to being subjected to possible sanc-
fi ns.
it would come as no surprise if the govern-
ment of either Cuba or Brazil, the latter also a
border neighbour of Guyana, should also come
out swinging against the assessment of the State
Department Report.

REACTIONS

In the particular case of Guyana, we do not
think that, for instance, Minister of Labour, Hu-
man' Services and Social Security, Bibi Shadick,
was objecting to the USA exercising its right to
address the crime of human trafficking.
Rather, the concern is over "fairness". The
State Department must understand that in its over-
all assessment of violations of fundamental hu-
man rights, including the specific issue of hu-
man trafficking, it certainly has an obligation to
be even-handed, to be objective in what it says
about the situation in any given country under
review.
The State Department would be reminded
of recent complaints from some other CARICOM
states about "unfairness" in aspects of its annual
.human rights report.


In our increasingly. ihter-dependent
globalised environment when the shortcomings
and strengths of the developed and powerful na-
tions become known along withthose of the weak
and poor states, it is essential for all to strive:for
objectivity.
It would not only be unfair, but quite hurt-
ful for a country that has been making a conscious
effort to deal with serious human rights problems
such as human trafficking, to have to contend with
sanctions from the superpower that can unilater-
ally impose them without having to bother about
sanctions for its own violations of any established
human rights standards.

CCJ caught in Trinis' Police Bills crossfire


IN THE 15-member Carib-
bean Community the troika
of states with the unenviable
rating as major crime cen-
tres other than, of course,
crisis-plagued Haiti are Ja-
maica, Trinidad and Tobago
and Guyana, quite likely in
that order.
However, in contrast
to official policy being pursued
in Jamaica and Guyana, the
I I


PATTERSON
Trinidad and Tobago Govern-
ment has taken a controversial
initiative to replace the consti-
tutionally enshrined Police Ser-
vice Commission (PSC) with a
proposed Police Management
Authority (PMA).
'Prime Minister
Patrick Manning and his Na-
tional Security Minister, Mar-
tin Joseph, in arguing the case
for the police reform bills now
before the cOrUn.try-' pliament,
have been emphasising that r~ _
placing the ?. C with a pro-
posed empowered PMA,
would enable the authorities to
more effectively battle the
criminals who have so seri-
ously tarnished the image of
that twin-island state.
A fall-out of this pro-
posed legislative course is that
Trinidad and Tobago may not
now be among the four
CARICOM states identified as
the initial members of the Car-
ibbean Court of Justice (CCJ).
Reason is that a


-Guyana-Jamaica approach


two-thirds parliamentary majority
is required for amendments to
constitutional provisions to re-
place the PSC with the PMA.
However, a reading of
the political scenario last week,
showed that level of support may
not be forthcoming for the sched-
uled Senate debate on June 29 ei-
ther from the opposition United
National Congress (UNC) or
some six of the Independent Sena-
tors to guarantee approval.
While the CCJ which
is integral to the process of the
Caribbean Single Market and
Economy'(CSME) in its original
jurisdiction is now enmeshed in
crossfire politicking between the
opposition UNC and the govern-
ing People's National Movement
(PNM) Guyana and JamraiC
have reaffirmed commitment to
steer clear of any move to inter-
fere with the PSC's jurisdiction.
Both, nevertheless, in-
sist on maintaining a distinction
between "operational control" of
the Police Force by the Commis-
sioner of Police and "control of
policy" as it relates to national se-
curity and the functioning of the
Police Force.
That, basically, accord-
ing to separate telephone conver-
sations i had week with-
Jamaica's National Security Min-
ister, Peter Phillips and Guyana's
Home Affairs Minister Ronald
Gajraj the latter involved with
his own local controversy over
killings of criminal elements by a
phantom death squad.

MINIMUM TRIO

It may not be evident to
some opponents and supporters
of the controversial police reform
bills before the Trinidad and To-
bago parliament, but unless there


is a sudden change of heart to
break a current government-
opposition impasse, that coun-
try would not be joining
Guyana, Jamaica and Barbados
in having access to the CCJ in
both its original and appellate
jurisdiction when it comes on
stream, as expected by No-
vember this year.


A I



MR. RONALD GAJRAJ
All CARICOM
states of the anglophone Car-
ibbean are expected to be mem-
bers of the CCJ in relation to
its original jurisdiction in inter-
pretation of the Co-nunity
Treated' ii resolving disputes.
Only those countries
that succeed in obtaining con-
stitutional authority, with ei-
ther a required two-thirds par-
liamentary majority as well
as a national referendum in a
few cases can access the CCJ
as both a court of original ju-
risdiction and as the final ap-
pellate institution to replace
appeals to the Judicial Com-
mittee of the Privy Council in
London.
A minimum of three
signatories is required to en-
able the inauguration, of the
CCJ to have both an original


jurisdiction and as a final court
of appeal in place of the Privy
Council.
Guyana has long abol-
ished access to the Privy Coun-
cil, and Barbados and Jamaica
are in the process of finalising
legal arrangements to be able to
access the CCJ as their court of
last resort.
In the particular case
of Trinidad and Tobago, it
seems to be heading for the em-
barrassing situation of no longer
being part of the original quar-
tet of states to have the CCJ re-
place the Privy Council, while
Port-of-Spain will be the court's
operational headquarters by vir-
tue of an earlier agreement
among CARICOM partners.
The Prime Minister
of St. Lucia, Kenny Anthony,
who has lead responsibility
among Community leaders for
Governance and Justice, holds
the view that the emerging re-
gional court should not be "con-
sumed in partisan political war-
fare" as it would be integrally
associated with the reinn's pbo-
litical sn'2C.ignty and the devel-
opment of a West Indian juris-
prudence.
Anthony would have
a problem trying to persuade
the Opposition Leaders of both
Trinidad and Tobago (Basdeo
Panday) and Jamaica (Edward
Seaga) to his point of view, in
the face of current domestic
party politics in those countries.
Mr. Seaga's Jamaica
Labour Party is currently facing
defeat in its latest battle,
through the courts, to prevent
the government of Prime Min-
ister P. J. Patterson from secur-
ing parliament's approval of
legislation for the country to be
a founding member of the CCJ


both in its original and appel-
late jurisdiction.

WIDER VISION
The Patterson gov-


eminent remains confident that
the legal roadblocks will soon
be cleared for it to complete all
relevant arrangements for the
CCJ to replace the Privy Coun-
cil as its final court of appeal.
What may stand in
favour of those opposing the
legislation for police reforms in
Trinidad and Tobago, among In-
dependent Senators, social
commentators and members of
the legal profession, is that so
far as the proposed Constitu-
tion (Amendment) Bill, 2003 is
concerned, there is NO known
precedent in tht Caribbean re-
gion for a government abolish-
-ing the Police Service Commis-
sion (PSC) as part of any new
anti-crime initiative.
Opponents of the
bills would have been fortified
in their contention that scrap-
ping the Police Service Commis-
sion with a more "politically
correct" Police Management
Authority was unnecessary in
the fight against crime, as firmly
stated last week by retired Po-
lice Commissioner Jules Ber-
nard.
In the case of Ja-
maica, National Security Min-
ister Phillips was emphatic:
"We certainly have no intention
in displacing the Police Service
Commission.


"We are, however,
looking at ways how to ensure
greater levels of accountability
and transparency in the opera-
tions of the Force and are con-
sidering examples as they exist
in the United Kingdom and
Canada. For instance, the UK
experience with both a Service


Commission and a Police Au-
thority with different func-
tions..."
In terms of a wider
vision against tinkering with a
nation's constitution on an ad
hoc or expedient basis, a report
on 'Vulnerability of Small States
in the Global Society' that was
made available some 21 years.
ago, has some observations and
recommendations relevant to the
current debate here on the po-
lice reform bills and creation of
a Police Manag&Mi.i Authority.
The report by a
Commonwealth Study Group of
eminent persons, headed by the
distinguished West Indian jurist
Telford Georges, and including
the former Foreign Minister and
Attorney General of.Barbados,
Henry Forde, had addressed
concerns about the abuse of
power at the domestic level.
One of the signifi-
cant recommendations called
for Caribbean and other
Commonwealth governments
to guard against the *abuse of
political power by establish-
ing, where appropriate, re-
gional mechanisms such as
regional elections commis-
sions and service commis-
sions to deal with key judi-
cial, administrative and/or se-
curity posts.







SUNDAY CMOUi .l'Jun4 20,. 20047



Guyana determined to combat TIP


A GINA Feature
THE Government is con-
cerned about the increasing
incidence of Trafficking in
Persons that has been grip-
ping the country. But it has
not been silent on the issue.
In fact, it has
adopted a proactive approach to
effectively deal with the prob-
lem, according to Minister of
Human Services and Social Se-
curity Bibi Shadick.
"We have been put-
ting so much effort into this
problem from the time we un-
derstood what it is," she said.
She added that her
Ministry's Departments such as
the Probation and Family Wel-
fare and Labour Departments
were always dealing with many
TIP issues such as sexual exploi-
tation.
WHAT IS TRAFFICKING IN
PERSONS?

According to Ashley
Garrett of the International
Organisation for Migration
(IOM), using international defi-
nition, 'Trafficking in persons
means the recruitment, trans-
portation, transfer, harbouring or
receipt of persons, by means of
the threat or use of force or other
forms of coercion, of abduction,
of fraud, of deception, of the
abuse of power or of a position
of vulnerability or of the giving
or receiving of payments or ben-
efits to achieve the consent of a
person having control over an-
other person, for the purpose of
exploitation. Exploitation shall
include, at a minimum, the ex-
ploitation of the prostitution of
others or-other forms of sexual
exploitation, forced labour or
services, slavery or practices
similar to slavery, servitude or
the removal of organs."
In Guyana, traffick-


ing appears to be most dominant
among Amerindians, with
Amerindian girls brought from
interior locations to work on the
coast.
They are usually
promised a certain wage or sal-
ary, but when they actually get
on the job, they are not paid
what was previously promised.
Reports were that
many of them are provided with
food and other consumer items.
Additionally, it was
pointed out that young women
from coastal regions are some-
times taken to hinterland loca-
tions to work in mining and log-
ging camps, and many of them
engage in prostitution.
Trafficking in per-
sons is associated largely with
organised transnational crime.
As a result, the US has clamped
down and introduced a protocol
to prevent, suppress and pun-
ish trafficking in persons, espe-
cially womenr-and children.
In 2000, the US in-
stituted a law, 'The Trafficking
Victims Protection Act (Division
A of Public Law 106-386 or the
'Act') and every year since it
presents an annual report on
TIP worldwide.
In the 2003 report,
recently released by the US State
Department, Guyana was
ranked in Tier 3, which indicates
that the Government does not
fully comply with the minimum
standards and is not making sig-
nificant efforts to prevent
victimisation, ensure protection
of victims and prosecute perpe-
trators or traffickers.
Countries which fall
in this category may also face
sanctions by the US Govern-
ment, including the "withhold-
ing of non-humanitarian, non-
trade related assistance," accord-
ing to the Fourth Annual Traf-
ficking in Persons Report.
The minimum stan-


dards require states to
criminalise trafficking, provide
assistance and protection of
victims in countries of origin,
transit and destination, repatria-
tion of victims.
TIP has three
phases to it. These include the
activity, that is recruitment,
transportation, transfer, receipt
of persons; the means by which
this is done for example, threat
or use of force or other forms
of coercion, abduction, fraud,
deception, abuse of power or a
position of vulnerability or giv-
ing or receiving of payments or
benefits to achieve the consent
of a person having control over
another person; and exploita-
tion. Recruitment may be
done by promising jobs (false
or true), kidnapping and pur-
chase. The trafficker may also
provide services such as docu-
mentation, transportation, (bor-
der crossing), and lodging for
victims.
WHAT FORMS OF
EXPLOITATION ARE
INVOLVED IN TRAFFICK-
ING?

Sexual Exploitation -
streets, bars, brothels, massage
parlours; Forced labour -
mines, agriculture, fishery, con-
struction, sweatshops, catering;
Domestic servitude; Street ped-
dling; forced military service
and organ removals.
It is estimated that
between 600,000 and 800,000
people are trafficked every year
globally. The United Nations
Children's Fund estimates that
about one million children are
trafficked every year.
Timothy Birner,
Coordinator of the US Em-
bassy, reported that TIP is es-
timated to be the third largest
revenue source in the world. It
has an annual profit of about


MS. BIBI SHADICK


US$8M.

WHAT INFLUENCES OR
CAUSES TIP?

Several factors includ-
ing poverty, lack of opportuni-
ties/unemployment, social and
cultural practices,
marginalisation/subordination of
women and girls, sale of young
women by their families, en-
trusting poor children to more
affluent friends or relatives,
feminization of migration, lack
of information on safe ways to
migrate and social and political
conflicts (destabilised and dis-
placed population) impact TIP.
Traffickers benefit
from this in many ways. They
realise that there are few risks,
absence of legislation, lack of
law enforcement training/coordi-
nation; corruption, low invest-
ment (victims can be re-sold
several times) and there are huge


profits.

CONSEQUENCES FOR
VICTIMS/ COUNTRIES OF
ORIGIN, TRANSIT AND
DESTINATION

As a consequence of
trafficking, victims' human
rights are violated, they are
abused or coerced, they have an
illegal status in the country of
destination, they are treated as
criminals (because they are ille-
gal), they face the risk/danger of
death and serious diseases
(physical and mental) and they
find it difficult to reintegrate. As
a result they are stigmatised.
Often there is: an in-
crease of irregular migration,
growth and diversification of
criminal organisations/activities,
violation of national legislation
(on migration, labour and on hu-
man rights), threat to public
health, growth of political cor-
ruption, destruction of public -
and external confidence and
economic destabilisation -
money laundering, sex and
labour markets.

WHO ARE VICTIMS
AND WHYARE THEY
VULNERABLE?

Men and women, boys
and girls are at risk and are vic-
tims of trafficking in persons.
They may be vulner-
able because of their desire to
migrate, they encounter family
based violence and lack eco-
nomic opportunities.
"These children are
at risk of serious harm and in-
jury. Think about the threat of
HIV/AIDS. To involve children
in the sex trade is grossly inhu-
man. It hurts the child, the fam-
ily and the society. The physi-
cal, intellectual, and emotional
damage is irreparable," Ann
Greene said in a sensitisation


presentation.
"Despite their
adult-like sexualised behaviour,
these are children who need
protection, stability and care."
As a result, it is nec-
essary that Governments insti-
tute systems to prevent traf-
ficking, protect victims and
prosecute traffickers.
In Guyana, several
national sensitisation forums
have been held. This will con-
tinue in the Regions in efforts
to raise citizens' awareness.
Also, a research is being under-
taken by Karen De Souza of the
Red Thread Organisation.
According to
Garrett, the Caribbean Region is
least aware of TIP. Therefore a
regional programme, including
Guyana, is being undertaken.
Minister Shadick
says that the country does not
have laws on trafficking because
there were laws to deal with
-labour and'other issues now de-
fined as Trafficking in Persons.
She, however, notes
that legislation is being looked
at by the Ministry of Legal Af-
fairs and added that her Minis-
try will ensure there is a sus-
tained effort to address the
problem.
"The population is
in a mood to take action on this
and we have people who are
committed to the welfare of
others," she said.
In addition, the
Government has a proposed
plan of action to tackle the
crime. According to Minister
Shadick, this includes re-
gional workshops, public
awareness campaigns, media
campaigns, meeting with the
business community and
other' stakeholders, and
building a network of
organizations to effectively
deal with the problem.


Call centres fuM social change in traditional India
''';2 .:*-"


By Maria Abraham

BOMBAY, India (Reuters) -
Cranky U.S. talk-show hosts,
John Kerry and powerful Brit-
ish union leaders have all had
their say. Now it's the turn of
a Catholic priest in India's
money capital, Bombay.
Outsourcing has a new
critic.
From a church pulpit in
a middle-class suburb one sultry
Sunday morning, Father K.T.
Emmanuel spelled out the big-
gest danger facing the city's
young men and women: call cen-
tres.
In the congregation
were scores of 20-somethings
who spend their nights fielding
calls from the customers of U.S.
multinational giants such as
General Electric and Time
Warner.
"The lure of money is
making youngsters drop out of
college to take up call-center
jobs," Emmanuel said in his ser-
mon.
"They blow money on
the latest cars and cell phones,
while their middle-class parents
struggle to save money," he
added, as several parents nodded
vigorously in agreement.
At a Bombay call cen-
tre at about 1 a.m., 21-year-old
Reema darts out of work during


a break to share a smoke with
her male colleagues, looking for-
ward to a late night out at a disco
- all shocking behaviour for some
conservative Indians.
"My family life, social
life, health ... Everything is
screwed up because I work
nights," she said. "But the
money is so good that I'm will-
ing to compromise."
These Indian 'cus-
tomer relations executives'
(CREs) are part of an
outsourcing industry expected
to employ more than one mil-
lion people and account for $25
billion in exports by 2008.
They may well force a
tradition-bound country to re-
think its age-old social mores.
"In this age of
globalisation, where young
women step out of homes to
work at night, the attitude of In-
dian society will have to change,"
said sociologist Myrtle Barse.
"Otherwise, it w' lead to
plenty of conflict b, een the
generations,"
The change has already
fueled a conflict half-way across
the globe. After a U.S. political
backlash, it has become a
prominent issue in the presiden-
tial campaign. In Britain, bank
and telecoms unions have led
fierce protests against jobs go-
ing to India.


But four-fifths of the
world's 500 largest companies
already outsource some work to
India. With so many English
speakers and 1.5 million univer-
sity graduates each year, it

i U


decent sum in a country where
the average annual income is
about $500.
So each night, while the
rest of India is fast asleep, thou-
sands of young men and women
'""""'

ter in Gurgaon on the outskirts of the Indian capital New

makes sense for Western c6m-
panies seeking new ways to cut
costs.

WANT TO BREAK
FREE

Graduates entering the
industry earn between 8,000
and 10,000 rupees ($175 to
$220) a month, only a tenth of
their U.S. counterparts, but a


wearing headsets talk to cus-
tomers around the world in call
centres in New Delhi, Bangalore
and Pune. Most are hip dress-
ers and drink in pubs until
dawn after their shifts.
"Youngsters in call
centres have big spending
power and this gives them the
sort of independence young
people in India usually do not
have," said psychiatrist Anjali


Chhabria.
R e ub e n
Fernandes, 20, earns 13,000
rupees a month, and says he
will settle for nothing but
the best. His shopping list
includes the latest mobile
telephone, a car and the best
liquor.
"And now, I want
to live on my own," he said
firmly.
This is rebellious
talk in India, where the fam-
ily is considered the bedrock
of society and young people
are often expected to live
with their parents until they
get married.
"Indian parents
tend to be doting and de-
manding," said 23-year-old
Lakshmi, who works in a
call center in the country's
technology hub, Bangalore.
"Parents threaten to commit
suicide or jump off buildings,
but in the end they come
around."
Call-centre bosses
insist their offices are hardly
hotbeds of revolution. "Soft-
ware and back-office centers
have brought in a world-class
approach to work in India,"
said Raju Bhatnakar, chief
operating officer of ICICI
OneSource, part of financial
services giant ICICI Group.


DON'T NEED NO
EDUCATION

But for students barely
out of their teens, the money is
great, so many wonderwhy
they should "waste time" get-
ting a university degree.
"No other job in India
offers this kind of money to
graduates and undergraduates
fresh out of college," said
Harmeet Singh, a 23-year-old
car-owner whose father has
never owned a vehicle.
Middle-class Indians
have traditionally scrimped and
saved for decades to send their
children to the best universities,
but 19-year-old Karen
Femandes managed to convince
her parents it was a good idea
to drop out of university after
a year.
"She (Karen) is earning
a good amount and taking care

"A good college educa-

SUNDAY CHRONICLE, June 20, 2004


The sore i

LAST week, we looked at our
drainage system in
Georgetown, and those canals
and drains, which our budget
will allow us to do this year -
2004. We said that we could
do so much and no more even
in the face of our wanting to
satisfy the needs of all of our
citizens in this area of our
responsibility.
Today, however, we
wish to turn our attention to
our roadways. This is a sore is-
sue in the City. So many of our
roads are in such an embarrass-
ing state of disrepair that it is
very difficult for some citizens
to hire a taxi from the point of
their residence to other parts.
We hear these reports everyday.
SSome taxi drivers just would not
take the chance to go into cer-
tain streets, even for a little more
on the fare.
We know more than
anyone else the inconvenience
and problems this sorry situa-
tion continues to cause resi-
dents. We know because we
must traverse these same roads
and experience similar difficul-
ties and problems. We are not
happy with this state of affairs,
but our resources limit our abil-
ity to get things done.
The cost to resurface
on mile of road between is about
$4.1M..
This is essentially why
the Council has allocated $40M
to upgrade, patch, and overlay
in sections with asphaltic con-
crete to the following roads.

James Street between Barr and Bel Air Streets;
Shoppers Lane West Ruimveldt;
Edun Street Jackson Street to Perry Street; and
Abary Street Eping Avenue to Duncan Street.


In addition, the Central
Government will do a number
of roadways in the City. You
will have more on this in an-
other edition.
We are fully aware of
the bad condition of many other
roadways in Georgetown. But
our very limited resources
would only allow us to do
those in the schedule.
However, there is an-
other very serious problem the
misuse of these roads by some
citizens. It appears as though
some contractors and builders
find it fashionable to mix ce-
ment, store building materials
and park heavy duty vehicles
for protracted periods on the
shoulders of the facilities.
These actions do not only con-
stitute a threat to life and limb,


but also inhibit the Council's
ability to give attention to other
crucial facilities such as
streetlights, and public health
and environmental services. This
is not being fair to those taxpay-
ers, who make their contribution
to the development of our City.
We appeal to those,
who indulge in these actions to
stop it now and help the Coun-
cil restore Georgetown. On the
whole, citizens must gently re-
buke those who are bent upon
doing things that hurt our envi-
ronment. This must not be left
to the city Council alone. Every
citizen has the right and respon-
sibility to ensure the security of
those facilities and Georgetown
as a whole.
In our next edition, we
will look at Solid Waste Man-
agement.

A GINA feature

THE Rehabilitation Ser-
vices Division of the Minis-
try of Health will once
again be observing 'Rehab
Week 2004' from June 20
through 26. The theme for
this year's observance is
'Making a Difference'.
Activities planned to
observe the week include a
country-wide Open Day in
Rehabilitation Departments,
an extensive media campaign
involving radio, television and
newspaper, a public lecture
and a charitable activity to
promote public awareness and
improve the profile of reha-
bilitation in Guyana.
The Government of
Guyana provides rehabilita-
tion services through the pub-
lic health system. These ser-
vices focus significantly in the
area of physiotherapy, with
increasing attention being paid
to other components of the
rehabilitation programme.
As a result, the De-
partment of Rehabilitation
Services of the Ministry of
Health offers programmes in
Physiotherapy, Occupational
Therapy, Speech Therapy
and Audiology.
The Ministry of
Health is one of the agencies
catering for the needs of the
persons with disabilities in
Guyana. It assumes responsi-
bility for the services pro-
vided through the formal
health network and also sup-
ports the work of some non-
governmental organizations
(NGO's).
At the same time, ini-


tiatives undertaken by non-gov-
ernmental organizations as well as
the Ministry of Education also
address the needs of persons with
disabilities.
Initially, rehabilitation
services were only available in
Georgetown. However, over the
last two decades there has been an
expansion of the services to six
Regions (2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 10).
With the expansion, the Division
faces many challenges in the re-
cruitment and retention of human
resources and at the same time in
the acquisition and maintenance
of material resources required for
the delivery of rehabilitation care.
PHYSIOTHERAPY
Physiotherapy is
recognized as a healthcare profes-
sion, which involves the assess-
ment and management of persons
with physical impairment through
physical interventions aimed at
improving or maintaining func-
tion.
In Guyana; physio-
therapy services (in and out-pa-
tient) are made available through
the regional hospitals in Regions
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10 and some
health centers in Regions 3 and 4.
In Georgetown, in addi-
tion to the main department,
which is located at Georgetown
Public Hospital Corporation, ser-
vices are provided for patients
with neurological problems at The
Palms and for children with spe-
cial needs at the Ptolemy Reid
Rehabilitation Centre.
OCCUPATIONAL
THERAPY
Occupational Therapy
(OT) is a method of treatment to


help people with physical,
mental and social problems. The
aim of this therapy is to enable
those who are permanently or
temporarily disabled to be as
independent as possible in their
everyday lives while recovering
from illness or adapting to dis-
ability.
Occupational Therapy
services are available in
Georgetown at the Georgetown
Public Hospital Corporation
and The Palms. Children with
special needs are treated at the
Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation

SUNDAY CHRONICLE, June 20, 2004


Teacher salary increases



significant in the last



ten years GINA


Amsterdam .

WHAT IS HAPPENING
NOW?
At the beginning of 2004,
the GTU put forward a
proposal for increased salaries
for teachers. The union
requested that the lowest
category of teachers( junior
teachers, teacher aides and
acting teachers) should be given


a 5 % increase, 10 % for the
category of teachers above that
level and 15% for trained
teachers throughout the
remainder of the scale.
Several meetings were
held between the two parties
to this regard, and the
Ministry proposed a 3%
increase based on


FOR the past 11 years,
teachers' salaries have been
significantly increased and
better working conditions
have been provided for the
nation's teachers. This is
consistent with the
Government's emphasis on
the education sector. In 1992,
$1.1 B was allocated to the
sector. This year, $14.5B was
allocated.
In 1992, teacher salaries
were very low with some
receiving $3,100.00. Prior to
that, $382 was the teacher's
salary in 1985.The present sum
of $22, 099 for the lowest paid
teacher shows that the increase
over the past ten years is over
600 per cent.
In 1994, teachers
-received a 100 per cent
salary increase across the
board, less than two years
after the present
administration took office.
The salary increase in that
year created a significant
anomaly, since Public
Servants salaries under
the Public Service
Commission, had remained
the same. That is to say,
problems arose, because in
some instances, teachers


employed by the Teaching
Service Commission were
earning more attractive
salaries than their
counterparts in the Public
Service who held similar
qualifications. In some
cases, many teachers were
earning more than their
supervisors. Government
recognized that measures
needed to be put in place
therefore, to rectify this
anomaly, to ensure that all
were satisfied with what
they earned, including the
Public Servants. In the
years following, several
general increases were
made across- the-board to
benefit all parties involved.
However, this meant that
teachers' salaries were
still higher than some
public servants with
similar qualifications.

Besides salary increases,
teachers receive a number of
benefits, including seven days
per year special leave for
Headteachers, 28 days
departmental leave and one
month's Whitley Council leave
after a term of four years. They


also receive vacation allowance,
equivalent to one month's salary.
Teachers in training are given
time-off to attend the Cyril
Potter College of Education(
CPCE) while in service Othersd
are given time-off to attend the
University of Guyana with full
salary, as well as 13 weeks
vacation time per year with pay.
A monthly stipend is also given
to those attending CPCE for
pre-service.
Teachers' children
writing the Caribbean
Examinations Council (CXC)
Examinations are given
subsidies, while Government
has ensured over the years
that there are improvements
in the teaching environment.
New schools have been built,
school equipment provided
and allowances for teachers
who gain additional
qualifications.
Government has ensured
that teachers are continuously
trained and more in-service
training centres were extended
to Rose Hall, Vreed-en-Hoop,
Anna Regina and New

affordability and
sustainability. The proposal
was rejected and
negotiations moved to the
conciliation level with the
Ministry of Labour
intervening.
This week, another meeting
between the Ministry of
Education and the Guyana
Teachers Union (GTU) to
negotiate salary increases for
teachers took place at the
Ministry of Labour, Industrial
Relations Department on
Brickdam with Chief Labour
Officer, Mohamed Akeel
chairing the proceedings. .


The proposal of 3% was
again rejected by the union, and
a request was made for talks to
move to the conciliation level.
More negotiations took place
with the Ministry explaining
that it could not afford more.
Minister of Education, Henry
Jeffrey explained that the GTU
needs to take into consideration
that Government has to allocate
funds for teachers being
promoted as well as new ones
entering the field.

GOVERNMENT'S
CONTINUED
COMMITMENT
Last year, teachers were
given a 5% increase in salaries


and Minister of Education,
Henry Jeffrey had noted that it
is what Government could
afford.
To date, teachers' salaries
compare favourably with public
servants salaries, even though
the salary scale for teachers
shows that some still receive
more than Public Servants.
At the last meeting
between the Ministry of
Education and the GTU,
Permanent Secretary, Ganga
Persaud has said that the
Ministry is open to further
talks but that Government is
maintaining that the amount
that it can afford presently, is
3%.

SUNDAYCHRONIC ..June .29,2004. .. ........_____L .. .......-- -t I


By Evelyn Leopold

UNITED NATIONS,
(Reuters) Secretary-Gen-
eral Kofi Annan and key U.N.
Security Council members
intensified their opposition to
a U.S. draft resolution that
would renew the exemption
of American soldiers from
international prosecution.
Consequently, the
Bush administration on Friday
still lacked the required nine
votes to renew the measure that
would give U.S. troops immu-
nity from the new International
Criminal Court. The previous
resolution expires on June 30.
"We're going to be
coming back to the council by
Tuesday with a final plan with
our position in terms of next
steps," U.S. representative
Stuart Holliday.
The resolution was
first approved in 2002 after the
United States vetoed a U.N.
peacekeeping mission in
Bosnia, and threatened to op-
pose others, one by one.
The immunity would
be extended to all nations not
among the 94 countries that
have ratified a treaty establish-
ing the court, set up to pros-
ecute the world's worst atroci-
ties genocide, mass war crimes
arid systematic human rights
abuses.
But this year, the
abuse by U.S. troops of pris-
oners in Iraq is largely respon-
sible for opposition among the
15 council members, diplomats
said.. The court steps in only
when a nation refuses or cannot
carry out its own probe, mak-
ing it highly unlikely U.S. citi-
zens would ever appear before


the tribunal.
No council member is
expected to veto the resolution
but a significant number of ab-
stentions would kill the measure.
China's U.N. Ambassa-
dor Wang Guangya told Reuters
on Friday he decided to abstain,
adding his voice to Germany,
France, Spain, Brazil, Chile,
Benin and Romania.
The only sure "yes"
votes at the moment come from
Britain. Russia. Angola. the Phil-


PRESIDENT GEORGE
BUSH

ippines as well as- the Uniied
States. Pakistan and Algeria were
undecided. council sources said.

ANNAN STEPS UP
OPPOSITION.

Annan appealed for the
second consecutive day to coun-
cil members to oppose the reso-
lution, distributing a memo at
their monthly luncheon on Fri-
day. He said the measure under-
mined international law and sent
an "unfortunate signal any time
- but particularly at this time."


The memo, obtained by
Reuters, "strongly urges the
council not to renew this mea-
sure."
After the lunch, Annan
told reporters the resolution
would shatter the unity achieved
in the council when it last week
endorsed a new interim Iraqi gov-
ernment and a U.S.-led multina-
tional force. He noted the coun-
cil was "hopelessly divided" last
year, refusing to authorise the
war in Iraq.
The Bush administra-
tion is opposed in principle to
an international court having any
jurisdiction over American sol-
diers abroad and fears politically
motivated prosecutions.
Its resolution would
exempt from the court's pros-
ecution'military and civilian per-
sonnel "related to a U.N.-
authorised operation." This in-
,cludes U.N, peacekeeping opera-
,lions as .ie11 as those endorsed
by the council, such as U.S.
troops in. Iraq.
China's position is un-
usual because Beijing has not
signed or ratified the court's
treaty. Diplomats believe it is
related to disputes -with Wash-
ingtoi over Taiwan, although
Chinese envoys said the prisoner
scandal was the reason
Algenan Ambassador
Abdallaliali, who had been ex-
pected to back the United States,
said he was now undecided.
"Obviously the Ameri-
cans don't have the nine
votes," said Baali, the only
Arab envoy on the council.
"The secretary-general's
statement was quite strong
and apparently the Abu
Ghraib situation had an im-
pact."

a spelling quiz. Chicago was
relatively easy. So too was New

him to remark: "Aieee! All'yuh

Henry Rodney), 'stones dressed'
(he in a shine 'shut' and she in
she Sunday-best), and doing
their best to 'pope' the show.
Not only did they succeed
in their ploy, but had the
temerity to take turns at airing
each other's dirty laundry and
manage to- look coy and
scandalised at the same time.
Miguel Browne, who came
next, brought a rare kind of
energy to the programme, in that
there was a certain rhythm to
his presentation, reflective
perhaps not only of his Latin
roots but the parandero in him,
a character synonymous with
Christmas and 'Parang' in his
native Trinidad and Tobago.
A young man that dearly
has his finger on the region's
pulse, he used dialect,
witticism and humour in


little vignettes, not just to
celebrate the colour. of
language and show how, in
spite of its incongruity at
times, it unifies the
Caribbean as a people, but to
foster as well, a wider
appreciation and respect for
the vernacular; to say,
unequivocally, that contrary to
popular opinion, it does have
syntax; it does have structure.
Using 'Calaloo', a song
made popular by David Rudder
many years ago while with
'Charlie's Roots', not only to
add spice to his routine but also
lend it form, he declared early
into his performance:
"Yes! We're all part of one

and condensed milk. What we
have is syrup and condensed
milk, hence if you are asked
to pay a dime more for it, you
should jump at that," he told
the gathering which included
travel agents from Guyana
who were on a FAM Trip to
New York, compliments of the
airline.
According to NA's
Georgetown Sales Manager, Mr.
Junior Horatio, who also spoke
at the function, the airline offers
a "truly the best non-stop"
service.
"I don't think that is being
boastful, but factual," he said.
With the introduction of the


four non-stop flights this
summer, Horatio said the airline
wants to ensure that it can
provide a "very good service,
on-time performance, minimal
baggage service complaints, in
general good customer service on
the ground and in the air, and
definitely in our dealings with
customers and travel agents."
He added that the agents are
integral to the functioning of the
airline and that is why NA
views them as partners.
-.f..'We had said when we
started that we were not in for
the mile, but in for the
marathon, and I think we are
proving it," Horatio said..


Sby s

and unite us is the way we
speak the language. Because,
you see, the creole tongue, or the
way we speak, is something that
Caribbean people from Jamaica
right down to Guyana could
understand. But you see you
have to understand language; if
you don't understand the
language, you'll obviously have
problems."
A history teacher by
profession and a member of the
group, Los Paranderos de UWI,
to which he belongs since his
student days at St Augustine, he
rounded off his act with a
hilarious piece from his
collection, 'Talk that Talk'.
A real humdinger, it centred
on an argument that broke out in
a neighbourhood grocery store
and involved the shopkeeper,
('; a cantankerous, 'sore-foot'
old cuss named Olga, who
wanted 'pig-tail' to put in she
'pelau'; another named Boysie;
and an 'English-duck' named
Taffy who, instead of biscuit and
sweetie, had the grace to call for
crackers and candy.
'Rebel', who had been
piping up every little now
and then in between acts, saw
h. window of opportunity
took it soon after
intercession. By the time he
was done, the poor audience
was in stitches.
Former Commissioner of
Police, Mr Laurie Lewis,
seemed particularly partial to
the little anecdote about the
father who strongly objected
to his daughter going steady
with a guy named Chuck, all
because he didn't like the way
it rhymed.
He could be heard repeatedly.
asking of friends...
"You mus'e name Chuck,
nuh?"
And what can we say of
'Short Pants', who answers to
the name Llewellyn MacIntosh
and who, to this day,; still
believes that Trinidad would
have made it to the World Cup
in '98, if only management had
taken his advice and chosen
players whose names rhymed.
The piece he did was 'Paris
in '98', which traces the history
of Trinidad football from 1998
to as far back as 1974, when,
according to him, rumour had it
that voodoo may have been
responsible for the team not
making the World Cup.
They say it was voodoo in
'74
7 Bad luck in '90 when 'Strike

They blame management for
the team's failure
to go to Mexico, Spain, and

Among other pieces he did
that evening were two vintage
blasts from the past, namely
'De People Will Talk' and 'Ah
Vex' by the late 'King Fighter'
and 'Mighty Unknown',
respectively. He also rendered
'Ah Want to Dead', which saw
him take the Talkalypso title
at this year's carnival.
And why does he want "to
dead"?
Well! He said is the only
sure way he could get the radio
station 'fuh give he air-play'.
In opening remarks, Paul
Keens-Douglas, who was the
last artiste to take to the stage,
had said that the whole purpose
to having an event such as Talk
Tent was to highlignt the
different styles there .~nr in the
oral traditions. At the time, he
said, which was art" -d 1974,
there were no talk she- :s .uch.
"There was no pl'r- -u could

He said that just as there are

like Sparrow, Melody and Crazy,

Italians see vision of


monk's face in statue


ROME (Reuters) Thousands
of faithful and curious Ital-
ians have visited a statue of
Christ after a woman said
she saw the face of mystic


monk Padre Pio appear on the
brbnze figure in the north-
western city of Genoa.
"The Cardinal of
Genoa came to see it last night


and he agreed that there was a
face but said that further inves-
tigations were needed," Mauro
Boccaccio, spokesman for the
regional government of Liguria,


said Friday.
Boccaccio said a
woman was first to notice the
face appear Wednesday when
she came to view the Christ of
the Deep, a bronze figure of
Christ that artist Guido Galletti
designed in the 1950s to be sub-
mersed under the sea.
Padre Pio was said to
have the power to be in two
places at once and to display
the stigmata bleeding wounds


in the hands and feet similar to
those of Christ. He died in 1968
and was made a saint in 2002.
Some eight million pilgrims visit
the town where he is buried
each year.
The Christ of the Deep
statue has been undergoing res-
toration work for the past eight
months and is due to be returned
to the sea on June 26.
"It's an icon for thou-

SAO PAULO, Brazil
(Reuters) Brazilian scien-
tists have discovered a spe-'
cies of fh, related to sharks,
that hai been swimming the
seas siq dinosaurs walked
the Ealsa researcher in-
volved ,)t the project said on
Thursday.
The fish, which is a
kind of chimaera. or ratfish, is
about 142 inches to 16 inches
long, has large, wing-like fins,
a u hip-like tail and exposed


nerves along its body that help
it navigate in the deep, dark wa-
ters where it lives.
The chimaera was ini-
tially found off the southern
coast of Brazil in 2001- by com-
mercial fishermen. Realising it
was a new species, Brazilian
scientists dredged the ocean
floor to find more examples;of
the fish, said Jules Soto, cura-,
tor of the Oceanographic Mu-
seum of the University of the
Vale do Itajai.


t.


"The species that we
found has fossil records that ar6
150, 180 million years old,"
Soto said in a telephone inter-
view. "That's very rare."
"It's like if we had an
animal as. old as the Tyranno-
saurus rex still alive," he said.
Dubbed Hydrolagus
matallanai after Spanish scien-
tist Jesus Matallanas, the chi-
maera is a fish that has a skel-
eton largely made of cartilage,
like sharks and rays.

Shakespeare silences


guns in Rio slum


By Peter Blackburn
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil
(Reuters) Shakespeare si-
lenced the guns in a no
man's land separating two
warring Rio de Janeiro gangs
on Tuesday night as residents
of nearby slums watched
Brazilian TV stars perform a
play about love in time of war.
Actors and an audi-
ence of about 1,000 were greeted
with a deafening welcome of
firecrackers set off by the local
Third Command drug gang
shortly into the premiere of
'Antony and Cleopatra' in a
concrete, open-sided school
sports hall.
Ever since a deadly
shootout at a soccer match two
decades ago, mobsters from the
Third Command in the Parada
de Lucas slum have feuded with
the Red Command gang from
neighboring Vigario Geral,
separated by a street known lo-
cally as the 'Gaza Strip'.
"It was chaotic to-
night but it's been a wake-up
call to help bring these commu-
nities into the cultural main-
stream," said Paul Heritage, the
British director of the Portu-
guese-translated drama.
"It's much more than
a play. It brought people to-
gether ... this area is normally
deserted, silent and violent,"


added Heritage, a drama profes-
sor at Queen Mary, University
of London who has worked on
mainly prison-based theatre
projects in Brazil for the past
12 years.
Rio de Janeiro's
slums, or favelas, are notori-
ously violent. Many are con-
trolled by drug gangs, with po-
lice only willing to enter in mili-
tary-style invasions.
"I'm rather nervous.
It's the first time I've played
in a favela. There are many chil-
dren and it's difficult for them
to understand," said Maria
Padilha, a star of an immensely
popular Brazilian TV soap op-
era, before stepping on stage to
play Cleopatra.
"In 20 years I've
never acted in such a difficult
environment," film actor Chico*
Diaz said. "The language was
very different from what they
speak "but they identified with
violence and love ... there was
a chemistry ... discovery."
"It's difficult living
here, dangerous ... this was dif-
ferent," said local resident Fa-
biana da Silva Pinto, 28, with
five-year-old daughter Fabricia
clinging to her. "We've never
seen anything like it before. We
adored it."
Heritage said he
would stage 'Antony and
Cleopatra' and 'Measure for


Measure' in the City of God
and other Rio favelas during
the next eight weeks. Perfor-
mances are also scheduled in
Rio's chic southern zone near
Ipanema beach.
"We'll bus in kids
from the favelas but it won't
stop there. We have a year's
programme lined up," he
said.

DON'T WORRY
However, the volatile Rooney was shown a yellow card
against Switzerland and faces a suspension from a possible quar-
ter-final if he is booked in Monday's final Group B game with
Croatia.
"Obviously, it's important he
doesn't get a yellow card," Beckham
said. "But he can't go into the game
- and I'm sure the manager won't
ask him to go into the game wor-
rying about that yellow card because
it could affect his performance."
Beckham reckons the young-
ster has not been overwhelmed by
the Rooney-mania gripping his
home country and is coping well
with the aftermath of making his-
tory against the Swiss. WAYNE ROO<. Y
"He's coping like it never hap-
pened," Beckham said. "He's very quiet about the hotel.
Of course, he's aware of it, he's watching it on telly and I'm
sure he's speaking to his family and friends at home.
"But the most important thing is that his feet are on the ground and
he just can't wait for the next game to start to hopefully score again."
England need a draw on Monday against Croatia Pt the
Luz stadium where they lost France to reach the quarter-
finals.

International Six registered a whopping 93 games, sprinting away
from F&H Supremes on 73 with Friends bringing up the rear on
65.
All six players in the winning combination scored consistently
with Imtiaz Ali leading the way with 17 games while there were 16
for Intikhab 'Corbie' Ali and Navin 'Sharpshooter' Samaroo, 15 each
for Hicken and Colin James and 14 for Manniram Shew. For F&H
Supremes, Orin'Boston made 16 games with 15 each coming from
Troy Alfred and Scan Mayers.
Trophies were presented to the winning team and the top player
in each side Imtiaz Ali of International Six, Boston of F&H
Supremes and C. Orie of Friends (13 games).
The game was sponsored by Manniram Shew's brother,
Dowlatram who resides in Canada.

Montgomery sees grudge


motive in USADA probe


By Adam Tanner

SAN FRANCISCO,
(Reuters) Tim
Montgomery's lawyer says
the world's fastest man is
being investigated over
possible steroid use by the
U.S. Anti-Doping Agency
(USADA) because, of
allegations made by a
personal enemy, the head of
the BALCO laboratory.
Cristina Arguedas, attorney
for the world 100 metres record
holder, responded'on Friday to
a USADA letter 10 days ago


which started a review process
that could ban Montgomery
from the Athens Olympics in
August.
"Today we submitted a
detailed response to a June 7th
letter from the United States
Anti-Doping Agency in which
USADA made a number of
unfounded allegations about
Tim Montgomery," Arguedas
said in a statement.
"Virtually all of the
allegations included in
USADA's letter come from the
files of Victor Conte, an
individual who has been indicted

nephew Raymond and nieces Felisha and Alicia


on 35 separate counts of felony
violations of Federal law, and
who had a well-known and
bitter falling out with Tim
around the same time most of
these documents were created."


TIM MONTGOMERY

Montgomery, partner of
triple Olympic champion
Marion Jones, was one of at
least four track and field
athletes to receive USADA
doping violation letters last
week.
The others were Chryste
Gaines, a member of the 1996
Olympic 4xl00m relay gold
medal-winning team, Olympic
400 metres silver medallist Alvin
Harrison and 2003 world indoor
200 metres champion Michelle
Collins.
Arguedas, who works in the
San Francisco area; detailed a
few of USADA's documents for
the first time, including
calendars from the San
Francisco area lab BALCO
(Bay Area Laboratory Co-
Operative) the U.S agency
believes show steroid use.
"The calendars characterized
by USADA as evidence are not
evidence that Tim took
anything," the attorney wrote.
"They are not authored by Tim,
nor do they confirm that
substances were actually taken
on any specific date.


"At best, they are


evidence that some other
individual, perhaps Conte
himself, desired that Tim
take certain substances on
certain days."
The calendars sound similar
to documents Marion Jones's
lawyers shared with reporters
about her of cryptic notes
apparently written by Conte, a
self-educated nutritionist who
once played bass guitar
professionally.
"The fact that USADA
only provided two calendars,
from three years ago, raises
serious issues as to their
legitimacy," Arguedas wrote. "It
references meets that he did not
run in, and has race times that
are clearly not his.
"Yet it contains the
initials "TM" at the top,
evidently having been
altered by adding those
initials in an- attempt- to
damage Tim's reputation.
This calls into doubt the
Reliability of any of the
records found in Conte's
file."
Conte, who wrote to
President George W Bush this
week offering details about
athletes in a plea-bargaining
deal, and his attorney did not
respond to requests for
comment.
"Given the seriousness of
these allegations and
consequences of USADA's
actions, USADA should come
forward with irrefutable
evidence if it is attempting to
suspend an athlete who has
.never failed a urine test,"
Arguedas said.
"Not only has it failed to
do so but its evidence is largely
unrelated to Tim, is lacking in
. any foundation, is inconsistent,
and is inaccurate.
"Tim Montgomery has
done nothing wrong, and we
intend to vigorously fight any
attempt by USADA or any
other sports organisation to
deny him the opportunity to
fulfil his dreams and
participate in the 2004
Olympics.

LISBON, (Reuters) Euro-
pean football has woken up to
the huge talent of teenage
striker Wayne Rooney after
his exploits at Euro 2004,
says England skipper David
Beckham.
Rooney was impressive in
England's 2-1 defeat by France
and then became the youngest-
ever scorer at a European cham-
pionship with two goals in
Thursday's 3-0 win over Swit-
zerland.
"He's an exceptional tal-
ent," Beckham said of the 18-
year-old yesterday.
"The players and a lot of
people in England knew it be-
fore this tournament but now
Europe is finding out -about
Wayne Rooney. And we're very
lucky to have such a good
player in our team."
Beckham felt Rooney won ,


his spurs against the European
champions in England's opening
game last Sunday.
"Playing against some of
the best defenders in the world,
he ran away from a couple and
held off a couple and that's not
easy to do," Beckham said.
"He probably got a lot of

Jackson steps down


as Lakers coach

... Kobie Bryant to become free agent


NEW YORK, (Reuters) Phil
Jackson stepped down as
coach of the Los Angeles
Lakers Friday, three days
after the team lost the NBA
finals to the Detroit Pistons.
Jackson, 58, is one of the
most successful coaches in the
history of the NBA, winning
nine championships, six with
the Chicago Bulls and three with


KUSBE KYAN -
the Lakers.
His five-year, $30 million
contract Zoach expires at the
end of this month but th team
said he had been offered another
job in the organisation.
"The experience of the
past five years has been
great," Jackson said in a
statement.
"Three (championship)
rings and a fourth opportunity
makes this a bitter-sweet ending
but it's time to pause and
reflect. I'm appreciative of all
the Lakers, the organisation, the
fans and (owner) Dr (Jerry)
Buss."


CAREER RECORD
Jackson has a career record
of 832-316 for a .725 winning
percentage, the best in NBA
history.
His 175 playoff victories and

Dravid keen to step down as

one-day gloveman
BANGALORE, (Reuters) India batsman Rahul Dravid is hopeful teenage test wicketkeeper
Parthiv Patel will relieve him soon as the side's one-day gloveman.
Dravid is among the top Test batsmen in the world, but won a regular one-day spot only after
agreeing to keep wicket two seasons ago. The move helped India play an extra batsman.
However, the 31-year-old has often spoken of the strain of keeping wicket.
"Wicketkeeping is not something that comes naturally to me. I look upon it as a challenge and
I try and do my best," Dravid told reporters yesterday.
"I hope Parthiv will be given the opportunity to become a full-fledged wicketkeeper batsman
(in one-dayers) that probably India needs in the future."
He said he hoped Patel's improving Test batting on the last two tours of Australia and

modern players ***


lack personality


LONDON, (Reuters) -
Former world number one
John McEnroe has compared
modern players to "robots,"
accusing them of lacking
personality.
"A lot of the players are
Darth Vader types to me," said
McEnroe in a reference to the
half-man, half-machine characterr
from the Star Wars films.
"OK, so they are great
athletes but where's the passion,
the feeling?," the 45-year-old
American was quoted as saying
in the BBC's Radio Times
magazine.
"It seems to me that even
if you, the audience, really
dislike the guy on the court,
it's better to feel that than to
feel nothing," added
McEnroe, who will be
commentating for BBC
television at the Wimbledon
championships which start
qext Monday.
"-"We--need-'inmre-daring,


attempts to entertain. The
players don't seem happy to be
out there."
McEnroe, famous for his
controversial, on-court antics
during a career in which he won
four U.S. Open titles and three
Wimbledon crowns, warned that
tennis would go downhill unless
the attitude of the players
changed.
"They (the players) walk
around with their heads down.
If they're 15th in the world,
they're miserable because all
they can think about is the 14
people better than them," he
said.
. "They walk around in a
bubble that's all professional
sport and no life. We need to
work out a way of promoting
them, or the game will go
down.
"They need to be

France are drawing comfort
from the struggles of their
main Euro 2004 rivals after
squandering, the chance to
qualify early for the quarter-

Coach Jacques Santini
played down his
disappointment following the-2-

Italy are facing early

also battling to seal places in the

The holders seemed on

when they went ahead in
the first half against
Croatia but they took their
opponents too lightly after
the interval and had to
come from behind to avoid
defeat.

The Dutch stormed back,
with Johnny Heitinga and
Seedorf both flashing long range
shots just wide before Davids
ended the half by rattling the
post with another.
The second half picked up
where the first had finished, the
opening two minutes producing
good chances at both ends,
which Dutch keeper Edwin van
der Sar and his Czech
counterpart Petr Cech both did
well to foil.
Cech then beat out a Van

blank range and Van der Sar
matched him by tipping a
Smicer shot past the post in the
64th minute.
The keeper was powerless
in the 71st minute, however, as
Koller chested a long pass into

slammed the ball home from the

Cech saved brilliantly from
Andy van der Meyde a minute
later and Van der Sar matched
him with a double stop in the
75th, moments after Johnny
Heitinga was sent off for his
second yellow card.
The Czechs went close to
a winner when Pavel Nedved
thumped a 30-metre right-

before Smicer delivered the
killer blow.

Jude registered a time of
1:20.21.56 to come ahead of his
closest rival Gordon Kennedy,
while Warren McKay, Marion
Morrison, Vinesh Narine and
Marion Williams were distant
third to sixth placed finishers in
the gruelling event.
After the first five laps,
Bentley and Kennedy had
quickly established a lead on the
second bunch that included
McKay, Morrison and Narine,
then lapped other cyclists.
By the 20t lap, Bentley and
Kennedy had lapped the third
bunch and then mellowed into
the race, using their pace to
catch their breaths, while the
second bunch of Mckay, Narine
and Morrision tried desperately
to catch them, but to no avail.
With two laps to go, the
bunch opened up and allowed
the leaders to take the leeway.
The duo stayed together
in the final kilometre, then
200 metres away from the fin-
ish line, they burst into a
sprint, neck and neck, wheel
to wheel, and in the end,
Bentley with a jerk of his
cycle took the win and raised
his hands in celebration.

By Sherry Bollers-Dixon


IF YOU'RE adding'
unwanted inches without
knowing how, you're
probably doing some of the
following. Follow our advice
and feel happier about your
body.

YOU'RE GRAZING ON THE
WRONG FOODS
How often have you fallen
starving through the front door
and ended up snacking on the
first thing that comes to hand?
The problem with this is you
haven't a plate to measure what
you're eating, so you usually
eat more. You're also likely to
pick on snacks, such as biscuits,
cake or crisps that are quick and
satisfying but high in fat and/or
sugar. They are rapidly ab-
sorbed by the stomach, which
means it won't be long before
you're hungry again.
Resist buying these foods in
the first place. Instead, choose
bananas and high-fibre cereals to
snack on. If you're trying to
+.P.n.,,s. r-sh-dnw hvi. nrm ni^


chicken or cheese.
"Make sure your kitchen
has snack foods that contain
long-acting carbohydrates,
which will make you feel full
without piling on the pounds,"
says Dr Sarah Schenker, a dieti-
ciah with the British Nutrition
Foundation. Think about quick
dinner options instead of graz-
ing. If you live alone, sometimes
it's hard to cook dinner for one,
and single people often pick a
lot. Instead, try tossing bacon,
eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes
in a frying pan with a spritz of
vegetable oil, or stir-fry chicken
with chopped red peppers and
green beans.
For women, nutritionists
suggest a daily 100mg of Vita-
min B6 about a week before the
start of your period. It acts as
a mild diuretic, which will flush
out excess fluid.


YOU'RE EATING TOO
MUCH SALT
Excessive salt in the diet
adds extra sodium to body flu-
ids, which stalls the mechanism
that pushes water out of our
cells, causing the stomach to
feel full and swollen.
We only need 4g of salt a
day, which is less than one level
teaspoon. Avoid foods that con-
tain hidden high'levels of salt,
such as many ready-made
meals, processed meats or
tinned foods. Try seasoning
food with black pepper only,
which apparently boosts lethar-
gic metabolism, meaning food is
used up more quickly. If you
find salt too difficult to skip,
eat plenty of potassium-rich
foods, such as bananas and avo-


One meal that can't
missed is breakfast. Not only
it an opportunity to refuel 1
body after going throughout 1
night without food but it's
signal to the body to active
fat-burning enzymes that dem
ish the fat you stored while y
slept. If you can't face break
fast too early, have a fruit. T
earlier you eat, the soon
you'll start burning calories.

YOU'RE NOT EXERCISING
OFTEN ENOUGH-
It's a fact of life that we p

calories than we burn up. A

Stranded Cubans build motorbikesat hme



Stranded Cubans build motorbikes -at home-


By Anthony Boadle

HAVANA (Reuters) Take a
Chinese bicycle. Attach a
stolen chain-saw motor, a
plastic bottle for fuel tank, a
bent pipe from a bed frame
for the exhaust. And what
have you got?
A riquimbili, Cuba's home-
made motorbike that's noisy but
effective.


It's no ordinary moped. The
lads push souped-up versions to
reckless speeds in excess of 62
mph in illegal races on the
outskirts of Havana.
Whole families ride them,
too, to get around town Mum
and Dad with a 'child
sandwiched between them.
Easily identified a block
away by its ear-piercing din, the
riquimbili (pronounced rick-in-


billy) is an ingenious
improvisation to cope with a
chronic public transport
shortage Cuba has faced since
the collapse of Soviet
communism in the early 1990s
plunged the island into dire
economic straits.
Cubans line up for hours
for irregular bus services and
travel jam-packed in hump-
,- I --A- C--


A young Cuban mounts his riquimbilis as two girl pioneers walk past in a neighborhood
in Havana, March 23, 2004. The riquimbilis, Cuba's home-made motorbikes, are an
improvisation to cope with a chronic public transport shortage. They are cobbled
together from scrap-yard parts of old motorbikes, water pumps, electrical generators
to portable fumigator motors and mounted on a light bicycle frame. (Claudia Daut/


articulated trucks they call
'camels'. For a decade, many
have had to get used to
peddling to work on sturdy
Chinese bicycles with no
gears.
Enter the riquimbili,
cobbled together from scrap-
yard parts of old motorbikes
mounted on a light bicycle
frame, usually powered by a 50
cc to 125 cc two-stroke engine
obtained on the black market.
Anything' from water
pumps and electricity
generators to portable fumigator
motors will do. Power boosters
from old Soviet military tanks
are preferred for reliability and
strength.
The transmission,
controlled with a makeshift
clutch, is frequently just a
simple roller rubbing against the
wheel, or a belt system, though
prized riquimbilis use motorbike
chains.
Their fuel efficiency is
unbeatable. Most do 120 miles
per gallon (50 km per liter) of
gasoline.
"Public transport is so bad,
unfortunately. If there were
more buses we would no need
to make these contraptions,"
said bodywork repairman
Lazaro Brito.
There's no fancy chrome
or superfluous gadgetry on
Brito's riquimbili, but it does
have a bright-red fuel tank
cannibalised from a Russian-
made Karpati motorbike. The
exhaust pipe was hammered
out from the metal frame of


a hospital bed.

ILLEGAL BUT TOLERATED
Riquimbilis are illegal and
their owners face frequent fines.
Cuba's communist government
says the do-it-yourself bikes are
too dangerous to be on the road,
and authorities only issue
number plates-for factory-made
motorbikes. ,
Police have become more
tolerant, however, apparently
in response to the worsening
transport crisis, and fewer
home-made bikes have been
confiscated lately.
"The riquimbili resolves our
problem," said Rainier
Gonzalez, who works
fumigating against mosquitoes
for 245 pesos ($10) a month,
which is Cuba's average
monthly wage.
Gonzalez said police should
crack do\vn on people racing the
bikes because there have been
fatal accidents. But they should
not go after Cubans using their
use as a means of transport.
"That's not fair. There are
no cars. We cannot buy a car,"
he said. Few Cubans have access
to private cars built after 1960
and need high-level government
approval to buy one.
Riquimbili racers modify
their engines to add piston rings
and increase cylinder size. They
use carburetors from Japanese
bikes like the Suzuki for more
power and performance, and
lower the weight using plastic
bottles for gasoline instead of
tanks.


"I use mine to get around,
go out at night. But if someone
wants to race, I'm game and I
won't lose," said Helder Leal,
22, showing a scar across his
stomach from a nighttime crash
at 65 mph.
"I was going full out and
bust my guts," he said.
Riquimbilis are all about
Cuban inventiveness in dealing
with bureaucracy and scarcity
in a battered socialist economy.
Even the name was made up,
nobody knows by whom, and
cannot be found in any
dictionary. There is no
agreement on its spelling, or
whether it was derived from the
names Rick and Billy.
The idea was copied from a
pre-World War II American
moped called the Whizzer that
was introduced to Cuba by the
postal service for telegram
dispatchers in the 1940s. Some
vintage Wizzers can still be seen
puttering along Havana streets.
Older Cubans go for a more
stable three-wheeled riquimbili.
Retired chauffeur Juan Almaguer
has been riding one for seven
years to carry goods for an
income. The bike, powered by
a 1940s American water pump,
can transport 800 pounds (365
- kg) of cargo.
"The police have
confiscated it three times. They
say there have been too many
accidents, but my brakeare
perfect," Almaguer said. 4But
riquimbilis are illegal, so you
can't invest too much money
in them." .


Today we will be looking at fathers; after all this is their day.

So happy Fathers' Day to all Fathers W URU I

and Stepfathers.

addition, there is
increasing pressure on the
walls of the small blood
vessels of the brain, the
eys, and the rest of the
which can cause any

MOKE
pressure increases,
damage occurs to the lining of
the' blood vessels in the brain,
and little blisters may form in
them. These blisters are very
small, but occasionally they
b suddenly. This causes a
ste, with hemorrhaging into
tiarain and paralysis of one
sid# of the. body or a loss of
speech.
.KIDNEY DAMAGE
__ onlnnued .high blood
-pressure may cause
progressive damage to the
kidney, narrowing and
thickening the arteries. This
re'daces the amount of fluid
that-the kidney can filter out.
Since the kidney eliminates
waste products from our.
body in to the urine, these
products now accumulate.
The result can be kidney
failure, with further
complications.- Early
treatment of high blood
pressure can usually prevent
serious complications.
Treatment even after some
blood vessel damage has
occurred will often delay


. further damage to the kidney.
HARDENING OF THE
ARTERIES
Finally, and most important,
if high-blood pressure is not
controlled, some of the fat that
normally circulates in our body
is deposited more rapidly into
the walls of the arteries.
Plaques (collections of fatty
material) accumulate in the
arteries, like rust on the inside
of a pipe. This condition is
called arteriosclerosis, or
hardening of the arteries. It
happens to some degrFe to all
the. arteries in the body. The
higher the blood pressure and
the more fat in the blood'
stream, the faster the process.
When the walls of the arteries
become thickened with-fat,
there is less space for blood to
flow through.

HEARTATTACK
If the arteries that supply
blood to the heart itself become
clogged with.fatty material, the
blood flow. to portions of the
heart is slowed. When' one of
the vessels is completely closed
off, there is a temporary
stoppage of all blood flow to a
part of the heart. Portions of the
heart muscle are damaged. We
say that a heart attack has
occurred.
All of us develop some
hardening of the arteries as we
get older, even if our blood
pressure is normal. People with
untreated or undetected high
blood pressure get this
condition and its complications
at an earlier age.
What you can do to reduce
your risk of heart and blood


vessel disease
GET RID OF EXCESS FAT
If.you are heavy, y.ou
should take off weight.
Losing weight, however,
'does not always result in a
complete, continual lowering
,of blood pressure. Being thin
makes you feel better,
increases your ability to
exercise, and. may reduce
your chances of having a
heart attack. Remember fad
or crash diets don't work-
over a long period of time.
Losing weight depends upon.
taking in fewer calories than
you require. If you use up
500 calories a day and 'burn
up' 2 500 calories a day, you
will lose one pound a week.
There is nothing magical
about this it is just difficult
for many people to do.
WATCH YOUR DIET
Reduce your intake of high-
fat foods, salty snacks and high
cholesterol foods. Eat a variety
of nutritious foods with more
chicken and fish, skimmed milk,
etc. than fatty meat, butter, eggs
and bacon.
Some foods with a high salt
or sodium content that should
be avoided or limited if you have
High Blood Pressure are:

Salt fish
Bacon
Red Herring
Ham Dried Soup
Salt Mackerel mixes
Sausages
Pickled Pig's Tail
Frankfurters
Corned Meat
Cheese
Pickles
Certain 'fast foods'

Seasonings such as soy
sauce, boullion cubes and


I


seasoning salts should not b
used.
In general, it is a good ide
to use little or no salt at th
table or in preparation of food
Use ginger, pepper, thyme
cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg o
lime juice to enhance the flavor
of foods. Avoid foods that ar
obviously salty or preserved i
salt or brine.

during your meal, instead of thinking solely about what's on your
plate, and drink water as you eat to slow the appetite and keep
food moving through your body.
YOU IGNORE ALCOHOL CALORIES
Alcohol is high in calories and it's an appetite stimulant. And
when we're tipsy, we're more likely to go for a fatty take-away
e than something healthy.
If you've had a couple already, think whether you actually-want
a another drink. Alcohol helps us relax, but before you say yes to
e another, stop and listen to your body. Aren't you feeling relaxed
.- enough? Go for a diet cola or sparkling water instead so you're not
, excluded when someone offers to buy you a drink'but you are also
)r reducing your calorie intake. There is a big social pressure on us to
Ir drink, but to keep that pressure to a minimum, we should be care-
e ful who we drink with. If your friends drink quickly, and you're
M buying rounds, you'll feel a pressure to keep up. Socialise instead
with people who drink at the same rate as you so you'll feel more
in control.
EMOTIONS RULE YOUR DIET
y We tend to eat too much when we're unhappy in another area
u of our lives. It could be stress, boredom or loneliness that's making
r your turn to food. If that's the case, only by addressing those prob-
e lems, will you be in the right place mentally to adopt healthy eat-
ing habits.
I Keep a diary for a week to see the issues that keep recur-
ring. Write down the foods you turn to during these moments.
When you are motivated enough to start a diet, set yourself
realistic goals two pounds by the end of the week is easier
to achieve than'a stone by the end of the month and get a
friend to diet with you. As an added incentive, promise your-
self a luxurious facial or a sexy outfit if you stick to your guns
for a month.

Iuda C I June 2 0 IPaI I I I I Ie I V


I have a mother who is constantly yelling at me for the
smallest things, regardless of whether or not it is my fault.
She tells me how hopeless I am, even though I get really
good grades and excel in all my extra-curricular activities.
Whenever I defend myself, she tells me I have an attitude
problem. She puts words in my mouth and denies anything
she ever did wrong. She told me she is going to kick me out
of the house because she thinks I am rebellious. She doesn't
even know what that means because most of the time I don't
say anything when she makes false accusations and yells at
me.
There is no one at home I can talk to about this. My dad
4s-literally afraid of her,-and whenever I cry after taking all my
mom says to me, he ends up telling me to apologise to her.
The thing is, I know I may raise my voice sometimes when I
am angry, but I am angry because she exaggerates and
overreacts. .
I need help. I can't go on any longer. This happens almost
every day, and I have been skipping meals and becoming
depressed. The only time I can forget what home is like is
when I am at school and with my friends. I suggested going
to therapy with my mom, but she just yelled at me for telling
her that we have problems.

EMMA

Emma, there is a fable about an old man who lived with
his son, da'ughter-in-law, and grandson. The old man was
hard of hearing, and he sometimes spilled his food. His son


and daughter-in-law were so disgusted by this they made the
old man eat by himself out of a wooden bowl behind the
stove.
One day the old man's grandson, who was only four,
began gathering bits of wood. When his father asked what
he was doing, the boy replied, "I am making a wooden trough
for you and mother to eat out of when I am big." Ashamed,
the couple took the grandfather to the table, and if he spilled
a little food, they never said anything.
Emma, like the boy in the tale 'The Old Man and His
Grandson', there is a lesson you could teach your parents,
but they aren't listening. You're really in a pickle!
You are so grown up, we think you. will understand this.
Your mom is who she is.
Whether there is provocation from you or not, she is
going to act the same way toward you. But you have some
real positives in your comer. You are good at school and extra-
curricular activities. Focus on them. Channel the maximum of
your energies on them. They are your future.
Once you accept that you can't talk to your mom or dad,
there is another logical step. Who can you talk to? Try talking
to your school counsellor or favourite teacher, not with the
expectation they can materially change your life, but so you
can vent your feelings and frustration.
Often venting feelings has two results. First, it releases
pressure, thus reducing tension. Second, it acts like a
sounding board for thoughts and ideas which can help you
figure out how to deal with your parents.
Your parents may be in power now, but in a few years the


only power they will have over your life tLiftl10l u
choose to let them have.
We heard a story about a man, it might have been the
writer Tracy Kidder, who worked on a project in a nursing
home. When the project ended, he told his wife and young
daughter that he never wanted to end up in a nursing home.
His daughter then looked up at her father with a glint in her
eye and said, "Well then, Daddy, you'd better be nice to me."

The Dentist Advises
nuaj S.-iANIH RIM


IS said that everyday, more
than 1 500 persons die of
cancer the world over. The
number is progressively
increasing because nearly
half of those who succumb
to the dreaded AIDS actually die of cancer. A
significant number of cancer patients exhibit
the disease in the head and neck region and
alert dentists are frequently the first to detect
the condition. But this should-not be the-case.
The victims themselves should be the first to
note the incipient tumour.
One needs to know certain important
points about cancer in general and oral cancer
in particular. This is especially so since despite
there not being a cure for it, prevention is
obviously desirable. In addition, appropriate
measures taken when the tumor is being
ensconced, will go far away in mitigating the
result. The following note epitomises the
disease.
Cancer usually attacks persons above 40
years. Almost every cancer that affects the
mouth begins as a surface lesion. Twice as
many men as women get cancer. It takes about
.. five years for a cancer to develop to the killing
S, stage. At that point in time, around half the
victims die. The two most common areas in the
mouth that acquire cancer are the sides and
upper surface of the tongue. For some reason,
: the gums never get affected.
Three broad groups of agents believed to
S cause cancer, namely physical, chemical and
viral. But exposure to these agents (called
carcinogens) does not necessarily result in the
development of a tumour because a number
of familial, dietary, hormonal, and sex-related
factors are know to modulate the process.
Although the exact cause of oral cancer
remains unknown, tobacco and alcohol have
been proven to be the most important
contributing factors. Over 30 carcinogens exist
in cigarette and marijuana smoke. In one
study, 97 per cent of the victims with oral
cancer smoked. The risk is reduced when the
cigarette carries a filter. But it increases greatly
with alcohol abuse. In other words, the
combined habits of smoking and drinking
alcohol increase the cancer risk dramatically.
Chronic mechanical irritation to the oral
tissues resulting from sharp parts of dentures,
irregular or sharp teeth or fillings, food bums
(hot coffee), spicy food, poor oral hygiene, and
a large number of other physical agents have
been implicated as possible factors in the
development of oral cancer. About 25 signs
and symptoms indicate the beginning of a
cancerous lesion. In general, any change in
appearance or sensation not previously
detected should be seriously examined.
Symptoms include swellings, bleeding, a crust
on the lip, a rough spot, pain, taste changes,
.. numbness, chronic cough and dry mouth.
.- Signs include a red patch, a white patch
." swollen and bleeding gums (leukemia), ulcers
S and bluish/brownish-black lesions.
A mouth rinse of toluldine blue will
highlight hard-to-see cancers. It is better to
suspect any abnormality than not to. Persons
should get in the habit of checking out their
mouth often of a mirror. Only then can

CONGRAI3TIAONS!
Planning a wedding is fun
and exciting, but it is
inevitably stressful, too. And
stress can wreck havoc on
your skin. Start taking extra
good care of yourself as
soon as possible. Get the
sleep you need, proper
nutrition, and drink plenty of
water. Exercise regularly. Go
for long walks. Do anything
you can to keep stress at
bay.

Setting thestyle -
Time is money when it
comes to planning a
wedding, and the sooner
you start looking for your
outfits, venues and
suppliers, the more choice
you'll have. This is especially
true if you are planning a
wedding during the
traditional popular months.
Money can't buy you
love, but it can buy you all
the, ingredients for a
fabulous wedding day. It
may not sound romantic, but
you must set a realistic
budget and stick to it. I have
seen many couples stressed
out nearer the date of their


wedding, arguing because
they have overstepped their
budget.
With imagination you
can create a wonder day -
whatever your budget.
Putting a little extra thought
into the details will help
create a day that is
memorable for all the right
reasons and not just the
bottom line. As soon as
possible, decide how much
you can afford. Now imagine
your ideal day and rein in
your ideas if necessary to
make them financially viable.
List all the components of
the wedding in order of
priority.
If the extravagant
reception is a must, then
you may have to rethink the
honeymoon. If you have that
designer dress you may
have to spend less on your
shoes, and so on. All but the
most lavish weddings
involve some sort of
compromise. Make sure you


that you lose sight of what's
really going on.
Brda beauty
Wedding day beauty
should be a priority. This is
the one-day of your life
when you are guaranteed to
be the star attraction. It's
natural to feel pressure to
look beautiful since it's given
that everyone will be


character of your face. Be
careful to use a light hand or
it will look painted in.
Liner- Use pencil liner to
line eyes, then brush powder
shadow of the same colour
on top. Or wet the brush and
apply liner shadow damp.
Good colours are charcoal,
navy or mahogany.
Mascara: Use a water-

The Wedding Planner

you've spent so there are no have worn a modem take on
nasty surprises to spoil your African attire. They all looked
day. great and this is a brilliant
idea if you don't like the


Helping hands
From the day you start
planning your wedding, be
honest and admit that you
cannot possible organise
everything yourself. If family
and friends are willing to
help, take them up on their
offer. Delegate as many. of
the routine tasks as you can
- it'll leave you time to enjoy
the really special ones. We
could come up with long
lists of who is traditionally
supposed to do what and
pay for what, but modem
weddings are much more
flexible. If you set up a
comprehensive wedding
schedule early on, everyone
will know when major
decisions have to be made
and who is going to make
them. Liaise regularly about
how things are gong and
where you need extra time.

Snap happy
If you want wonderful
memories of your wedding
day, it's important that you
find the right photographer.
The best way is by personal
recommendation: Make sure
you see the whole album
from a wedding that way
you know exactly what you
are going to get. Style-wise,
do-you want formal line-ups,
reportage or a mix of the
two?

What's your style?
Buy or ask relatives to
send you from abroad as
many wedding magazines as
possible. You will be spoilt
for choice with different dress
shapes from dozens of
different designers. And
don't rule out anything just
because you think it isn't
your style. Lots of brides try
on a traditional wedding
dress and discover that, far
from being the meringue they
dreaded, it actually suits them
down to the ground, so don't
be afraid to try something
new. This year so far I have


formal stuff.

Wedding-week De-Stressing
Techniques
Get a massage. Take a
bath.-Go for a run the
morning of your wedding. Do
whatever works for you to
clam yourself. Try not to be
so swept up in the occasion


scrutinising you. What is the
most beautiful, appropriate
bridal beauty? It's you at
youth must gorgeous. -
First, apply an oil-free
moisturiser. Then apply a
light foundation and seal it
in by pressing a yellow-
toned powder on to the face
with a puff.
Brow: Apply eyebrow
colour because foundation
and powder will fade the
eyebrows and that will.
reduce the strength and


resistant formula and coat on
two to three thin coats,
allowing each to dry a

mascara will last longer and
withstand tears.
Shadow: Use a light
colour shadow like a light
.peach or vanilla as a
highlighter on your brow
bone. The best way to get
your eye shadow to last all

day is to prime your
eyelid. I take the velour puff
and dust a little face powder,
directly onto the lid. In this
way, I cover any oil while
creating a smooth, dry surface
on which to apply colour. In
general, matte shadows last
longer than creamy or frosted
ones.
Blush: Wear a pretty
shade of blush rose or slight
bronze. Layer two powder
blushes the first, a natural
shade or an all-over bronzing
powder and the second, a
brighter.pop of colour.
Lipstick: Pale lipsticks
can wash out your face in
pictures, particularly when
you are wearing white. It is
a good idea to brighten lip
shade slightly. If you
normally wear brown or
neutral, wear that as your
base and put a pink or rose
colour on top. Or use your
normal neutral lipstick with
a brighter lip pencil, such as
pink. On the other hand, if
you normally wear dark
lipstick, use that as your
base and apply a lighter
pink on top to give you a
lift. You may mix various lip
colours when applying
makeup, but be sure to have
one great lipstick colour to
carry with you for touch-
ups.
Body make-up: Use a
bronzing powder on your
neck and chest if you need to
even out your skin colour.
You don't want your face to
appear to be a different shade
than the rest of you. Do not
use foundation on your
chest. It can stain your dress.
Tip: Avoid frosted
lipsticks and frosted eye
shadows since they crease
easily and are too reflective
for photographs.
Nail Polish: Use natural
shades so that chipping
doesn't show. Preferably,
have a professional to give
you a French manicure.
Sheer pink is a pretty choice
as it looks fresh and is easy
to touch up. Treat yourself
to a pedicure, especially if
you are going to wear open
toe shoes.
Fragrance: Don't try to,
achieve a long-lasting scent
by dousing yourself with
perfume. Over applying
scent will only overpower
those around you. Instead,
try layering a scented body
cream with a light spray
version of the same
fragrance (eau de toilette or
eau de perfume). Two light
formulas will lock a scent in
place in a much more
pleasing way than a heavily
applied perfume.
Hair: Lots of women
choose to do complex,
extravagant hairstyles for
their weddings. If that's what
kI.


you like, this is definitely the
moment to go for it. As with
your makeup, be sure to do
a dry run with your
hairstylists in the weeks
before the wedding to work
out the exact style you want:
Be sure to bring your.
headpiece or veil with you to
the salon. Yet, before you
commit to a fantasy hairdo,
consider a more simple and
classic approach. Hair that's
worn down is gorgeous. A
simple, sleek ponytail can
also be lovely. It is important
to feel like yourself, not like
an actress dressed up for a
part in a period movie or the
image your mother has for
you on your wedding day.

TROUBLESHOOTING:
How not to sabotage your
wedding looks
Unless you routinely get
facials and never have a bad
reaction, don't get a facial in
the week before the event.
Avoid getting too much sun
just before the wedding. Tan
lines from a V-necked T-shirt
might look silly with your dress.
Do not get a big-change
haircut or new hair colour in
the weeks leading up to
your marriage.
If you have a blemish or
a breakout just before the
day, keep-your hands off
your face. Don't pik,
squeeze, or attack. Your face
will look just fine if you just
leave things alone.
Finally, enjoy the day. This
day is about you and your
partner sealing your love with
a big ribbon bow and not
about whether the rice was
cooked right or the chicken
was seasoned well. Remember,
to smile and show your joy.

A WEDDING in the
- family can mean
different things to
different people.
To the prospective bride
and groom, it symbolises the
end of a long and on
occasion stormy courtship
that sometimes goes all the
way back to High School,

fathers, the realisation of a
long held dream to walk their
little princesses down the
aisle and give their hand
away in marriage.
To the younger siblings,
it can mean any number of
things..... like finally having
the room to
themselves....and not
having to share the
bathroom....but more
specifically, having, to learn
to pull their weight now that
'big brother' or 'big sister'
was no longer around.
For the older couple, it
often spells stability after
years of playing the field
racing against the clock;
companionship ......orjust a
matter of finally finding
someone with whom you are


compatible.
But whatever the reason,
weddings are, and always
will be, a special
occasion...which is perhaps
why some people go to the
lengths they have over the
years to make it a memorable
event ...as seen in the
abundance and variety of
food and drink; the lavish
outfits; the grandeur of the
ubiquitous wedding cake
[never mind the portions
allowed each guest keeps
getting smaller and smaller];
the exotic getaway for the
honeymoon; the
venue...you name it...
These days, you even
have a little novelty coming
into play such as the stretch
limousine, which does not
come cheaply at $5,000 per
hire, and the horse-drawn
buggy, bringing back
memories of an era long
past. And what do you make
of the habit of late of going
to the Square of the
Revolution and the Botanic
Gardens for the traditional
wedding photographs?
Which brings us to the
question of how this whole
thing really got started, and
why most people seem so
bent on having a June
wedding. The experts believe
that it all goes back to the
Romans and the Goddess
Juno, whom it is said looked

marriage and after whom the
month of June was named.
And while on the
subject of months, it was felt
that the month of May was
an especially bad time in
which to get married since it
was around then that the
pagans celebrated the
Festival of Beltane, an event
that was given to outdoor
orgies.
So seriously was this bit
of advice taken by the
English, it is said, that even
Queen Victoria forbade her
children from marrying in
May. And even to this day,
there are those who still
swear by the ancient rhyme
which says: ,
Marry.in the month of
May, and you'll surely rue
the day
but
Marry when June roses
grow, over land and sea
you'll.go
As for the custom of
getting married on a
Saturday, it is said that this,
too, was taboo in a time since
it was felt to be an
inauspicious day. Friday,
too, shared the same fate,
particularly if it fell on the
13th day of the month..
The bridal veil also has
its own bit of history, since

I can make out, it's somewhere between conversation and chocolate." Mel Gibson

moments when
a relationship
blossoms and
takes a step
forward: the first kiss, the
first time you say and hear
- "I love you", meeting the

marriage is still The Big One,
and is still a step that most
people want to take, even in
this modern world.
Marriage is certainly not
required for a happy
relationship but a wedding is
a symbolic day when you
promise to the world and
to each other that you want
to be bound together for life.
It's a chance to publicly
declare your love for one

Many rites of passage
may have fallen out of
fashion, but they can still
play an important role in our
lives. Birthdays,
christenings, weddings and
anniversaries are times you
always remember. Without


these rituals and special
days, life passes along
without much to distinguish
one day or stage of life from
the next.
Yet, there's no doubt that
these are difficult times for
marriage. Increasingly, there
seems to be a fear of, and


hostility towards, the
commitment of marriage. But
I believe that marriage will
remain the fundamental
support for the well-being of
all family members for
parents, children and
grandparents. It's easy to
become cynical about high
divorce rates, but the good
news is most of us still hope
and believe that marriage
can work and can last a
lifetime.
Human beings need to
love and to be loved. It's a
basic desire that a good
marriage fulfils in a
fundamental way. The best
marriages mean lifelong
support and happiness. The
social bond means the
couple creates a new family

loyalty to their parents. The

doubts and fears in the safe
haven of marriage, without
having to pretend. The
sexual bond of marriage
includes everything from
holding hands to the most
passionate intercourse. The
spiritual dimension to
marriage is often overlooked,
though many people in
modern life are
rediscovering that human
beings have a spiritual side.
Even with a formal religion
or faith, there is still a
spiritual aspect to marriage.
Many people enter into

change. It's important to
remember that a wedding day
won't change your relationship
much. It's an important step to
take, but exchanging rings
doesn't automatically alter who
we are. You both still are the
same people you were the day
before the wedding and
hopefully that is good news. If
you love each other enough to
take this giant leap, you should
be able to work together to
create a happy future.

weddings is the revitalised
groom. Far from being the
shadowy figure of days
gone by, who did little more
than just show up on the
day, today's grooms are
more involved than ever.
Today's couples work
together to create their ideal
day. They share out the
tasks and even if the bride
still has more input, the
groom is eager to imprint his
style on the day too.

Be our guest
Everyone loves to attend
a wedding. It's a heart-
warming celebration that
brings romance alive for
everyone. It inspires the
single guests that true love
does conquer all, and reminds
married guests of their own
favourite wedding memories.
It's also fun to see old
friends.

Wish upon a star
Marriage is one of the
greatest of all human
institutions. It brings
together what contemporary
life seems so often to split
apart sex, love,
companionship, fidelity and
makes something greater
than the sum of their parts.
Far from being outmoded, it
seems to be made for the 21st
century.
So why get married? My
answer is to share a life with
someone. To know that they
will be there for you and
you for them in tough times
as well as the good, that
neither you nor they will walk
away, to know that life is an
unbreakable bond that grows
stronger over time that is
what marriage is.

IT'S ALL




ABOUT


ACCORDING to
H i n d u
philosophy,
marriage is the
most important
of life's sixteen stages, as it's
representative ol the second
phase in the pilgrimage of
eternal life. It is also a
sacrosanct bonding of two souls
and two families, and not just
two individuals.
Indian weddings in general
are a reflection of India's many
cultures and States, with an
overlay of religious customs and
rites. Hindu weddings are no
exception to the rule, as they
are unique in their traditions
filled with auspicious meaning
for the bride and groom to start
their new life together.
Prior to the wedding
ceremony, there are quite a few
matters to attend to, such as the
engagement, during which gold
rings signifying promise are
exchanged. This is done through
a simple ceremony in the
presence of at least five
members from both the bride
and groom's families.
After that, a priest sets the
date on which the couple will
become one in holy matrimony, .
and although different
ceremonies are held, lasting

days, the wedding ceremony
proper lasts just one day.
The 'maticore' or 'dig
dutty', during which prayers are
offered to 'Mother Earth' for
her blessings on the two
entering into marriage, is held
the Friday before the wedding
after six o'clock.
After that, religious services
ae held at the homes of both
the bride and groom. During
dtese services, both bride and


groom are anointed with
turmeric and oil or rubbed with
dye. On many occasions, this is
done before the actual marriage
on Sunday.
Activities on the day of the
wedding commence with the
'Bariaat', which features the
arrival of the groom ('Dulahas')
and his entourage. He is greeted
with Aarti (blessings) by his
future mother-in-law and other
relatives at the entrance of her
home,, before being escorted to
the Janwaas or rest house.
After the priest performs
certain rituals with the bride or
'Dulahin' alone, she goes back
into chambers. The groom is
then taken into the Mundap, a
decorated canopy-like structure
where the actual wedding
ceremony is conducted.
Meanwhile, the bride's
sisters steal the groom's shoes
and hide them away, in the hope
that he will pay the ransom
they are demanding. At one
particular ceremony, known as
the 'Kanyadaan', the bride is
given away to her prospective
husband by her parents. The
bride's wedding sari and the-
groom's, scarf are then tied
together, signifying that no
outside force shall separate
them, and the
priest will chant

a new life with her husband and
his family.

Weddings...


From page 3
its original purpose is to ward off evil and to deceive
malevolent spirits. Brides are said to be particularly
susceptible to evil spirits, hence many of the customs
and traditions associated with weddings so as to provide
- some measure of protection. The bridal veil's popularity
in Britain during the 19th Century, however, had more to
do with symbolism than superstition since it was
associated with modesty and chastity.
Having white as the preferred colour for the bridal
gown, on the other hand, is said to have originated with
the rich in 16th Century England and given a fillip by
Queen Victoria herself who chose white over silver, which
was the tradrtIonal colour fol all Ruyal b ides. Before th -
bridal gown came into vogue, the experts say, brides wore
their best dresses. Colour was a matter of preference.
And, what can one say of flowers? A lot, it seems,
since apart from lending an air of festivity and ambience
to the occasion, one also has to be careful about one's
choice of genus, lest ill luck befalls the union. For
instance, it is said that while roses symbolise love and
fidelity, it is ill-advised to have a combination of the red
and white varieties.
Still on the subject of customs and traditions, when
last did you see a bride throw her bouquet over her-
shoulder for her bridesmaids to catch? Or for that matter
visited a wedding-house, other than in the countryside,
that had some good old-fashioned 'queh-queh' going?
And, remember the custom of going from house to
house a week after the wedding to share the wedding
cake...and how generous those slices were? And, what
do you make of the habit these days of handing out food
in food-boxes, and not in the traditional chinaware as
good old fashioned etiquette decrees.
As someone remarked the other day. it's a sign of the
times.
Well; sign of the times or not, people will still get
married...whether for love, money, or simply
companionship in one's old age.
As Tina Turner might say: "What's love got to do
with it, anyway?"

and a grand banquet which
brings the curtains down on the
marriage ceremony.
On the actual day of the
wedding, the groom would pay
a visit to the bride's home where
a special female called a 'sam
poh' would be on hand to ensure
that the custom and tradition
are upheld and to guide the
couple through .the wedding
ceremony.
The ceremony proper begins
with the ritual worship of the
ancestors, during which the couple
is required to bow three times at
the ancestral altar. This done, both
bride and groom then serve tea,
firstly to the bride's parents, who
will in turn present them with a
'red packet' (ang pow).
They then turn their
attention to the bride's older
siblings and other elder relatives,

Having completed this task,
they then leave for the groom's
house, where a small reception
for relatives, friends and
neighbours would be well
underway, and the ancestor
worship and tea ceremonies
repeated.
The act of crossing the
threshold of her in-laws house,
which would be well-decorated
for the occasion, signifies that
the bride is now officially a
member of that particular
household. Upon completion of
the ceremonies, the couple is
now considered man and wife in
accordance with traditional
Chinese custom.
The bride is then escorted
by her bridesmaids to the bridal
chamber where she takes a well-
earned respite in preparation for

Couples planning to get

any Courts outlet, and their
guests to make use of the
company's gift-wrapping
facilities so as "to make that
gift look as attractive as
possible."
It also recommends
considering such items from
its Powerhouse Department

Firecrackers are lit after the
banquet to ward off any evil

The end of the wedding
comes with the signing of 'the
marriage register, which makes
the union binding.
The bride has a special dress
in which to be married, and the
colour must be red. The colour red
in China symbolises the positive
aspects of life such as happiness,
wealth and fame, and is always
associated with good luck.

In the Chinese family
system, the wife lives with the
husband's family and is deemed
as no longer part of her own
family, but the 'property' of the
husband's family.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER
1966 CANNES FILM FESTIVAL


'AMANANDAWOMAN'
1966; Allied Artists. Eastman
colour; starring Jean-Louis
Trintignant, Anouk Aimee.
Directed by Claude Lelouche.
Some films achieve an
inspiring high standard of
beauty, social grace,
geographical significance, and a
reverence for everyday life and
human lose. 'A man and a
woman' is one of those forever
loved and precious films. Set in
Paris, its outlying small towns
and seacoast facing the English
Channel, ttus film focuses on a
man and a woman who have
lost their spouses whom the)
loved dearly, but who learn to
love again. She has a little
daughter, and he a small son
who both attend the same small
private school, which allows
their parents to meet by chance
one everung
How their story is told on
film is what has made this
movie special, and attempted to

SCOLOURED poster for the
SFrench film classic which
opened to crowds at
Georgetown's Plaza cinema
in 1967.


be copied by numerous
Hollywood, Bollywood and
British films, none of which
have been able to come close to
this original film.
The fact that this is a
French film (subtitled in
English), means that a style
combining intelligence,
surprise, romance, and a love
for art from any part of the
world, is to be expected. This
method of offering viewers
movies which appeal to their
mental and emotional faculties,
their intellectual curiosity and
reasoning, rather than crudeand
inhuman behaviour, is the
hallmark of most classic French
films.
Those who think of movies
as simple-minded entertainment
with sensational and
exaggerated stories, should look
elsewhere, not at films like
these.
Yet, when 'A man and a
woman' opened in
Georgetown at the plaza
cinema in 1967, it was talked
about incessantly and a
success. Cars were lined


.around the avenue between
New Market and Camp
Streets, and scooters and
bicycles packed Plaza's
marquee afternoon after
afternoon, night after night.
The film's magic went
beyond its brilliant style,
story, and acting.
What surprised Guyanese
was how a foreign French film
could feel so close to home
while offering a human
everyday atmosphere so calm,
so caring, so emotionally honest,
so hopeful, and so civilised.
What also made this film a local
success were certain of its
scenes which seemed to include
us by their familiarity.
For example, when
Trintignant ,drives through
streets flooded by rainfall, we
see cyclists holding their feet
off their peddles, or when we
hear the cool voice of a radio
announcer in his car advising
people to go to the movies in
their neghbourhood cinemas, or
play cards during the wet spell,
this felt real. OR when
Trintignant drives his car in


circles on a silt beach to amuse
his small son, the beach is not
like Caribbean blue sea beaches
at all, but a beach like ours,
which resembles the silted
beaches on the French coast near
the mouth of the river Seine,
and Le Havre facing the English
Channel. Also, when
Trintignant, who acts as a racing
car driver, practices alone in his
car on the sloped circuit, we
imagine the Timehri circuit as
well; indeed, this film had a
strong influence of the
development of local car racing
at Guyana's Timehri circuit.
The film is told through
the audible thoughts (called
voice-over) of Trintignant and
Aimee. This creative method
grips us because we do not
usually see it in such
romantic movies, yet it grips
'us because it is so true to
human functions. We are
shocked to see the film
change from colour to black

By Stanton Adams


111 E father's duty to his children cannot be transferred to the
mother. The need for a strong husband/father image is greater
n ever in today's fast-paced society where family members are being
led in every direction, away from the home. School, church,
amunity activities, jobs, recreational activities, peers and the mass
dia all beckon for attention at the same time. The father plays a strong
e to hold the family together.
Let us be aware that fatherhood is not merely a biological process.
;paration is needed. The fact is that this vital preparation has been
Ily neglected. There is no system to train fathers for their important
e, yet it is crucial that men develop an awareness of their role in the
velopment of an emotionally healthy child.


By Parvati Persaud-Edwards

MY FATHER died when I
was 12 years old decades
ago. We cremated him on Sat-
urday last. The grief and the
psycho-emotional repercus-
sions of losing my father at
such a young age have
haunted me all my life, al-
though I am today a mother
and grandmother.
Today is Father's Day a
day when the virtues of fathers
are being extolled by all. On this
special day no one speaks about
e drunken father, the abusive
father the father who betrays
is children's love and trust
d throws away his children's
ture because he lusts after
other women the degenerate
father for whom home and
family are way down on his
st of priorities; never mind
he little hearts which hun-
er for the presence of
that yet beloved person;
especially ontheir special
occasion.
But I have always
been a maverick, and I
will write about such
a father a father
whom when I was
ust a little girl, in-
licted such
wounds on my
soul that cause
me anguish un-
til this day.
On the
eath of
someone
people
say
agxd


things. I have never known how
to pretend. There are many good
things my father had done. He
was generous to a fault and he
was a good friend to many. He
created many millionaires with
financial and other help. He was
brilliant and talented and had
many virtues.
But in the lives of his wife
and children he created a waste-
land. My father was my hero -
until I reached 12 years of age.
But then he metamorphosed into
a monster that I have never since
been able to adjust my soul to
accept.
My father took the laughter
out of my heart when I was a
child and no one else has ever
been able to put it back.
Until that time I had a per-
fect father whom I adored, to the
extent where I aped his manner-
ism, even his walk pushing my
chest out and strutting until
one day one boy remarked audi-
bly to another that I looked like
Bardat, but walked like King
Kong.
Daddy was an amateur
boxer and body-builder. I re-
member our house used to be full
of sporting and media personali-
ties; and many trophies that my
daddy had won.
My brothers hated when
daddy put them on training regi-
men, but I learnt to lift weights
and box and when daddy staged
boxing matches between us on
the lawns, I used to beat my
brothers to a pulp.
Everyone called my big
brother and me "Prince" and
"Princess" because my father
showered us with so much love
that our demands, especially
mine, were instantly met.
He used to be mischievous
as a boy and his nicknamed
& "Huck" after the legendary
M Huckleberry Finn was
transferred to us. We


took the respect commanded in
the society as the children of our
father for granted and always
knew that we were special be-
cause everyone, even the teach-
ers, deferred to us.
He was this omnipotent
person in my childish world
who could do anything. When
the school wanted a library, I vol-
unteered daddy and he estab-
lished one. When the class had
an outing, I volunteered daddy,
and he footed the bill. When
teachers wanted pens, I took
daddy's custom-made Parker and
Schaeffer pens off his desk to
donate to them and he never
complained.
One day, when I volunteered
daddy after the headmaster had
told me that the school needed
new tennis equipment for a
match, he informed me that he
was scheduled to leave for a
business trip the next day. I
wasn't going to retract my word
to my headmaster, so the next
morning I left a note for my
daddy informing him that the
headmaster would meet him by
his office in New Amsterdam to
collect the tennis equipment; and
then I went to school and told
my headmaster to meet daddy at
his office. My father didn't let
me down. He postponed his
business trip in order to fulfill
my promise.
He was my protector. His
friend Vincent Cipriani was at
the Catholic Men's Church and
saw when the driver had a mi-
nor collision while taking me to
school. Uncle Vincent called
daddy who reached within min-
utes and had to be forcibly re-
strained from beating the driver.
One day a friend of his tried
to lift my dad's barbell and
nearly dropped it on me. He beat
the man badly, then physically
threw him out of the house,
Daddy stopped hunting i-


ter I cried inconsolably upon
seeing the sad eyes of a dead deer
he had not had time to butcher.
On his business trips within
the Berbice area, I would sit in
the car and refuse to move and
he would laugh and take me with
him; or when he had to use the
estate's helicopter I would stow
away behind a seat so that I
could travel with him.
After every trip he brought
beautiful gifts for my mother. I
particularly remember what he
described as "alligator" shoes.
For days I looked at those shoes
in fearful fascination, wondering
if they would bite.
My mother only existed pe-
ripherally in my early childhood
memories. My father was my
world.
But then he brought that
world crashing down over all of
our heads.
My wonderful father
started coming home drunk
after long absences. I used to
crawl tearfully into my
brother's bed, instead of rush-
ing to meet him as I formerly
did. I cowered under the sheets
as he shouted at my gentle,
beautiful mother.
Then he started hitting her -
and us. The first time my father
struck me reverberates in my
heart until today. My protector
had become my attacker. He
flaunted other women and my
stunningly beautiful mother
could not say a word. And he
beat her mercilessly and all she
could do was cry.
Until he beat her uncon-
scious one day and her father
took her away.
And L a mere child, but the
eldest sister of nine siblings, had
to drop out of school to take
care of the little ones, as all the
maids had left because of
daddy's drunken rages.
He took my three brothers


out of school and put them to
run his business one his shell
fertilizer operations, one his saw-
mills, and the other his trucking
business. And every cent the
boys brought home he blew on
friends and women.
He traumatised us until all of
us one by one ran away to
our mother.
We became poor to the ex-
tent where we went to bed hun-
gry many times, but not one of
us wanted to return to my fa-
ther.
He tried over and over to
bribe us. My father failed to
realise that what he had taken
from us no amount of money nor
material things could restore.
All of us chose to remain
poor with our mother, rather
than live with him in material
luxury.
But we have searched for
that father that we lost down the
years; and that void has made us
vulnerable to predators. We have,
each one of us, achieved but
the cost has been high.
We own homes and cars, live
decent lifestyles. Our children
are engineers and other profes-
sionals, most super-achievers
with their grandfather's brilliant
brains; but we, each one of us,
have never been healed of the
wounds. our father inflicted on
our souls.
I thought I could not crd
anymore for my father; but as
looked into the casket upon
always proud man whom. at tha
end, had lost everything that had
mattered to him more than his
children his wealth, his
strength, his friends, his power
- so that all he was left with
wee the children he had shunned,
I was overwhelmed with memo-
ries of a man who was once a fa-
the.
And thin the tears came.


What's the problem?


There are too many broken
marriages. The divorce rate has
now reached frightening
proportions too many
fatherless homes. Approximately
40 per cent of U.S. children do
not live with their biological
fathers. In the Caribbean, there
are about 70 per cent of women
heading households. In Guyana,
women-headed households
account for 29.5 per cent of the
populace. In a classroom of
about 60 students in a
Community High School in
Georgetown, 35 are from
women-headed households.
There are too many hurting
children. The breakdown of
marriage is an important reason
for the increase in childhood
poverty, juvenile delinquency,
teenage pregnancy, substance
abuse and school dropouts. A
group of 369 high school boys
and 415 girls were asked to list
the 10 most desired qualities of
fathers. The quality that received
the most votes was spending
time with his kids. The absent
or frequently absent father can
produce mental illness,
delinquency and homosexuality
in his children.
Dr Stanley Yolles, Director
of the National Institute of
Mental Health, states that a
father has power to reduce
delinquency, and also has a
decided influence on his child's
mental health and I.Q.
(intelligence quotient). A

Research done by Legal and
Yahraes have found a father to
be vital in helping a child to
mature emotionally. Their
research shows that children
who are content with their
relationship to their father had
little difficulty relating to
authority figures throughout life.
In a Cincinnati School in which
children were tested on
leadership ability, work skills,
personality and social skills, the
children who were most
successful had harmonious
relationships with their fathers -
and sct :ed significantly higher
than ti e who considered their
father, cuild relationships
unhappy. In studying family
relationships and how they
influence criminal behaviour,
researcher Alan Pearl found that
a close relationship between a
child and his father helped the
child accept standards more
easily and incorporate them as
values. Because of these internal
values, such children had less
difficulty obeying laws, rules and


standards given by other
authority figures throughout life.
In other words, these children
were much less likely to become
delinquent.
Clearly, the significant male
in a woman's early years sets the
patterns and tone that will
greatly influence her expectation
during her married years. The girl
whose father is involved and
interested, who invested himself
in her, learns very early that a
man can really care what
happens to her. A girl needs to
have a father who actively sets
standards in her life. The
stabilising role a father plays
goes far beyond financial
support and providing for the
comforts of the home.
When a father is separated
from his family, either by
physical or emotional absence,
children show serious
deficiencies in their social and
moral relationships with their
mothers, peers, and neighbours.
The more direct role a father
assumes in guiding and directing
his family, then the more likely


the family will be stable and the
children will enjoy greater
emotional stability.
A man as father matters.
Fathers have played a marginal
role in the family historically.
His role traditionally was
breadwinner, dispensing of
discipline when the mother
couldn't cope, and protecting
the family to some extent.
Today, researchers are
clarifying the importance of a
father's role. Be a model father.
Provide for your household, be
a good nurturer, show a positive
attitude towards your wife, be a
good role model in the
community. Do not become a
father, nurturer, or caregiver
through forced circumstances.
Use time profitably. Let your
caring compassion and helping
be natural attributes. Give
leadership to your family, be
involved.
Associate with your
children in their sports and in
their work.
Cultivate friendship with
your children.
Spend as much time as
possible with your children.
Talk and pray with your
children.
"The father who thinks he
can leave child-rearing to his
wife has not accepted the
responsibility of fatherhood.
Successful fathers are recognized
by their children as caring,
helpful, available, sometimes
right and sometimes wrong, but
consistently loving and
approachable."
Finally, my brothers, no one
is a perfect parent. Each of us
makes mistakes for which we
need forgiveness from God, our
children and ourselves. Butif we
take our parental roles seriously,
we can learn, improve, and
change. Our Heavenly Father is
a master architect at mending
father-chluld relationship.

"THE key to success is hard work and I vow to uphold that motto," said 42-year-old Keith
Campbell. musician, saxophonist and music show host.
KC. as he would like to be called, fist discovered that he had a talent for music w vn as a
eenager. he attended 'Teensville', a programme which showcased young and talented Guy: .se. He
ealised that he had an ear for lyrics and timing in relation to dance and rhythm.
He listened to all types of music and was fascinated with the selections of Peres Prado: nley
rurrentine and Junior Walker, among others. And perhaps that is the reason why he became b oked
in jazz. The late Grover Washington (Jnr.) was his idol.
At the age of 24, his father presented him with a saxophone and he began to train.
"It started as a hobby, but later I began to play with different bands," he told the Chronic s in an
exclusive interview.
From that time, KC carried his sax with him on an upward climb. A number of bands including
mischievous Guys, Sid and the Slickers, Rivals, Guyana Police Force Band, Pete's Caribbe~.n F sion
nd Side-Walk Jazz ensemble have seen the best of him.
He has composed two songs 'Journey to South' (the melody for which ci'me'lb him as he rode
n his cycle from Werk-en-Rust, where he lives to South Ruimveldt) and "Frustration'. Those tunes
vere never recorded because of financial constraints.
He rates himself as the youngest in the field and one of the best second only to band
leader, James Smart. But in his opinion, this kind of music is not very enterprising in Guyana.
n addition, KC pointed out, it lends very little scope for development. For example, people
o not want to pay for talent. Band leaders have to be satisfied with mere pittances when
required to play with international bands as compared to that paid for local shows at the
national Cultural Centre.
KC has taught music; he has played with both local and international artistes. He has also done
wo things to keep the spirit of jazz afloat: formed a jazz band and host a television show (Kool and
lassy) that caters to the tastes of the old and the young.
His programme is a unique one. Viewers between the ages of 30 and 50 in particular, say they
rnjoy the programme. This is further substantiated by the responses to the questions in the call-in
segmentss and the number of requests for replays of his presentations certainly measures his success.
KC is very hardworking. He declares: "My programmes are well researched. I use the hbrary,
record jackets, clippings from radio hosts, ideas from relatives and friends, the Internet, newspapers,
magazines and any other medium which is available "
i "This is specifically a jazz programme, but I allow enthusiasts to send out birthday
greetings to their loved ones. I also interview prominent musicians in the society who are
skillful in the use and knowledge of his/her instrument and those who would have composed
at least one song. In the case of businessmen, they must, of necessity make a significant
investment in music, either as
importers or owners of a band,
a CD or cassette shop or
recording."
KC sees the future of the jazz
industry and music in general in
Guyana rising to some heights.
He reiterated that there should be
more opportunities, which will
fuel the fire in young musicians.
Radio shows such as 'On Show
Guyana', 'Teensville' and 'In
Search of a Star, are promotions
which should be encouraged,
ongoing and fully supported by
the government.
Speaking about training to
ensure continuity of the industry,
KC referred to a number of
professionals in the field whose
expertise can be used to train
youths to master the trumpet and
other musical instruments.
Legislation should be enacted to
enable large institutions like the
Guyana Telephone and Telegraph
Company (GT&T) to sponsor
steel or dance bands, and the
hotels and resorts should be '
mandated to hire these bands at .
least three times a week. ..
In his opinion, karaoke and ..
one-man bands, though
entertaining, kill talent.
KC dreams of seeing the
emergence of all-star bands
and the granting of 4nty-free

- company wins appeal



against agency in


.of Appeal in 2001,
I set aside an award
J. in which a High
Court Judge had granted an
agency C.D. Persaud and
Roopnarine Persaud US$32,334
as promotional expenses and
goodwill, and given Neal and
Massy Enterprises Limited of
Trinidac and Tobago, $100,
000.00 as costs.
The Appellate Court found
among other things that the
High Court Judge had erred in
finding in favour of the agency
when there was no evidence on
which to base his findings.
The Trinidad company,
Neal and Massy Enterprises,
were manufacturers of batteries
while C.D. Persaud and
Roopnarine Persaud operated as
an agency who sold batteries on
behalf of the manufacturers.,
The' company had insti-
tuted p"ijceedings by way of a


specially endorsed writ claiming
against the defendants the sum
of US$73,185.43, being an
amount due, owing and payable
by the defendants to it for
goods sold and delivered to the
defendants for the period be-
tween March, 1989 and Octo-
ber 5, 1992.
The company had also
claimed interest on the said sum
on the equivalent in Guyana
dollars at the rate of exchange
prevailing at the National Bank
of Industry and Commerce Ltd.
cambio on the date of judgment
at the rate of six per cent per
annum from October 6, 1992 to
the date of judgment.
By way of defence and
counterclaim, the defendants
made the following claims:-
(1) The sum of $750.00 for
guarantee claims.
(2) Five per cent of all sales
over the period March 31, 1989


George

Barclay

to August 25, 1992 at a promo-
tional cost of US$50,000.
(3) The sum of $150,000 as
goodwill of the business in the
batteries.
The amount claimed by the
company was not disputed at
the trial.
The trial, therefore, pro-
ceeded on the basis as to
whether or not the defendants
were entitled to the amounts
they claimed for promotional
expenses and goodwill.
In his judgment the trial
Judge stated inter alia:
"The issues to be deter-
mined;-
(1) Did the defendants take
goods in the amount alleged by
the plaintiffs and pay for them?

(2) Are the defendants liable
to pay for these goods or are
there any facts or the operation
of any law, which excuses them
from liability?
(3) Are the plaintiffs by
agreement between the parties
or otherwise, liable to pay the
defendants the amount claimed
or any other amounts for guar-
antee claims, promotional costs
marketing development and
goodwill.
After reviewing the evi-
dence, the trial Judge had
among other things stated: "I
am satisfied, however, and be-
lieve the defendant
Roopnarine Persaud when he
says that he expended mon-
ies for product promotion and
market development. But I do
not accept that he could have
been doing so for a sustained
period of three years. In the
absence of precise figures, it
seems reasonable that pro-
motion and market develop-
ment expenses for two years
would suffice to compensate
him for his promotional ef-
forts. He could hardly have
found it necessary to con-
tinue promoting the products
after they -had been on the
market for more than two
years if his promotional ef-
forts were effective and effi-
cient.
"I, therefore, give him the
equivalent in Guyana Currency
of US$32,334 for promotional
costs.
Commenting in relation to
the award of promotional ex-
penses by the trial Judge, Chan-
cellor Cecil Kennard who deliv-
ered the main judgment, noted:
"If there.was no agreement le-
gally binding the company, then
the trial Judge could not have
properly, made an award under
this head.:He had, first of all, to
find that there was an agreement
which binds the company be-
fore he could have properly
made an award under this head.
If he found that there was none,
as he obviously found, the de-
fendants' claim would have
failed.
However, as this is a Court
of re-hearing, then we are free
to examine the evidence to as-
certain whether or not there was
a concluded agreement between


the parties on this issue, espe-
cially between Steve Sogrim and
Roopnarine Persaud.
Pointing out that there
were issues for determina-
tion, the Chancellor asked:
(1) Was a contract entered
into between Steve Sogrim and
the defendant, Roopnarine
Persaud for the payment of
promotional expenses?
(2) If so, was there a repre-
sentation by the Company that
Sogrim had authority to enter
on behalf of the Company, into
a contract of the kind sought to
be enforced, was made to the
defendants so that the Com-
pany would be bound thereby?
(3) If there was such a rep-
resentation, was there evidence
before the trial Judge on which
he could have made an award in
the amount, which he did?
(4) Are the defendants en-
titled to the amount, whiclfwas
awarded to them for goodwill?
Before examining the evi-
dence to see whether or not
there was a concluded contract
to pay for promotional ex-
penses, the Chancellor said he
wished to deal with the submis-
sion made by Mr. Juman-Yassin
to the effect that the company
not having responded to the
proposals submitted to it by
the defendants, it must be as-
sumed that the company, by ac-
quiescence, had accepted the
terms of the proposal.
Reacting to that submission,
the Chancellor said: "It is clear
that before a contract can come
into being, there must be both
an offer and acceptance together
with consideration and the evi-
dence concerning these must be
clear and unequivocal".
The judgment added: "In
this case, the goodwill at-
tached to the sale of the bat-
teries would be that of Neal
and Massy. It is true that the
agency having been taken
away from the defendants
would result in their profits
being reduced so far as the7
sale of the batteries is con-
cerned. Their claim, if any,
would be a claim for damages
for breach of contract.
"I cannot see how they
would be entitled to be compen-
sated for goodwill. It is Neal and
Massy which has been manu-


facturing and distributing the
batteries for sale over a number
of years and therefore, the good-
will of that type of business
would be that of theirs as the
cases on this subject demon-
strate.
"Goodwill is bought and
sold everyday. It may be ac-
quired in any of the different
ways in which property is usu-
ally acquired. When a person
has got it, he may keep it as his
own or may dispose of it, if he
chooses, under conditions at-
taching to property of that na-
ture.
"Goodwill is attached to a
business, and in this case,
there was no sale of their
business by Neal and Massy
to the defendants. What was
established between the par-
ties was an agreement for
Neal and Massy to supply bat-
teries to the defendants for
resale. There is no evidence
that the. goodwill had been
acquired; by, or assigned to,
the defendants. It cannot be
said that they were the own-
ers or assignees of any good-
will which still remains in
Neal and Massy".
"In this. case, the defendants
were mere importers and retail-
ers of the batteries they were
not the manufacturers of the
batteries. They may have estab-
lished a market in Guyana for
the 'batteries manufactured by
Neal and Massy, but in so do-
ing, they were mere agents of
Neal and Massy for retailing in
Guyana of the particular batter-
ies. But that does not mean that
they became entitled to the
goodwill which, in my view,
was at all times that of Neal and
Massy.
"In the circumstances, the
appeal by the defendants for an
increase in the &wards made by
the trial Judge in their favour
would be dismissed. On the
other hand, the appeal by Neal
and Massy against the awards
made in favour of the defendants
would be-allowed. Accordingly,
to that extent, the order of the
trial Judge would be set aside.
"Neal and Massy would
be entitled to their costs of
the appeal which, by consent
of the parties, is fixed in the
sum of $100, 000.001"

and white back and forth according to the mood of the scene.
Suddenly, we see a peaceful scene in the present turn horrific with memories of an accident,
etc. Colour represent horrid realities at times, while black and white tells more ideal, peaceful moments,
because lack and white movies have always helped us to remember that movies were movies, and
not 'reality'.
Beautiful music creates an atmosphere of exhilaration in this film. The theme from 'A man and
a woman' remains a popular guitar hit. The Bossa Nova songs of Brazilian Baden Powell grace the
soundtrack, and both the theme tune and these songs keep the movie delightful.
We hear this Bossa Nova music in a French film because Aimee's ex-husband was a Frenchman
who appreciated foreign art of the emotions. What shocks us is that he was a movie-star stuntman
who died filming one of those horrid 'reality' scenes found in trashy 'action' movies. When she
reveals this to Trintignant, then asks what he does for a living, he avoids telling her he is a racing car
driver because he does not want her to fear that she has found another man with a dangerous
profession. Instead, he replies that he is a pimp, probably to see if she would still accept him, but
all she says is "shame on you," calling his bluff. But when she asks how his wife died, the answer
is such a shocking and hear-rending surprise it should be left a secret for viewers of this great film.
This is the sort of film that teaches us the difference between 'false' movie topics, and
real credible ones which are far more meaningful to the real lives of viewers of any race,
culture, or creed. These two actors talk about the meaning of movies while acting in one.
What are movies? How do they matter to us? Why are you looking at this movie? How can
this film matter to you? They show us the pleasure of everyday life with their walks on the beach,
near the river and harbour, the dog running and leaping at the incoming tide, the pleasant civilised
relationship of adults to children, dinner of shrimps, tomatoes, wine, conversation, etc. After they
make love for the first time, she walks among cars stalled in Paris traffic, sits alone on a park bench
thinking of their newly begun affair, as a beautiful song is heard.
Imagine such scenes as they really existed in 1967 and you sat in Plaza, while outside dusk was
falling and a pink-violet sky hung over Colgrain House on Camp Street. Meanwhile, on the screen a
sign says 'PARIS' as Trintignant drives by, on his way to see Aimee who had sent a note to his
hotel in another city which simply said 'I love you'. But when they meet and make love, she
secretly remembers her dead husband, even though she has feelings for this new man. He can feel
her lack of true response; they part, and he is upset, disturbed, disappointed.
We hear his thoughts about her as he drives away. He does not understand women; how could
she send him such a note then act the way she did? But he had a hunch, and swings his car back to
the train station where she left for Paris.
But you should see the entire story for yourself. The sub-titled DVD version is better than the
dubbed one.
This is the feeling of hope and happiness sustained by this masterpiece film directed by Claude
Lelouch, who also made 'Live for life' with Yves Montand and Candice Bergen, which opened at
Plaza in 1968, when masterpiece films were a public familiarity in Georgetown.

ARIES Today would be a good time to initiate some kind of emotional clearing
of issues that have been eating at you for a while. If you approach the people
involved in a clear and friendly way, you should be able to clear the air once
and for all so you can concentrate on other pressing matters. Don't put it off.
Squelching your own personal needs will only lead to resentment. Once you
deal with your feelings about an issue, you may be able to act and move the
situation forward. A female authority figure may help you deal with a particularly
annoying coworker or friend
TAURUS -- You're playing at the top of your game. You can see far from this
perspective, and the air up here is so nice and clear. Good feelings and best
wishes are part of your uplifting experience. Everyone celebrates and rejoices
in your big win. People.seek inspiration and luck at the feet of the achiever. It's
easy to become part of the great things happening in your vicinity.
GEMINI -- Money is the last thing you want to think about, but it could be the
first thing you need to address. Make yourself comfortable here and get busy
tackling pressing matters. Instead of trying to escape the pressure, become
your own dynamic force. Once all this stuff is firmly under control, you can
breathe a sigh of relief and move on to bigger and better things. .
CANCER You don't know the meaning of fear these days. On the other hand,
you've never forgotten the meaning of love. Welcome to the territory of heroes
and peacemakers. -Even if your goals aren't that noble, you can still please
yourself without doing any harm. There are no lines between what you want
and what's possible. The ground is smooth enough for dancing and fertile
enough to receive any seeds that you .plant. The glorious continuum of this
moment stretches toward a happy future. You see no need to interrupt the
bliss with anything that doesn't fit your mood.
LEO -- Sensitivity is a gift. You're more in touch than ever with your feelings,
and that helps you read other people's minds and hearts. Just don't let this
remarkable ability get in your way there's no reason to take certain things so
personally. Reconnect with what excites yop. Discard anything else that
interferes. Rejoin the life that's going on outside your door. This time, though,
you're a player and not just an observer. Don't: worry about being all things to
all people when your specialty is this obvious; and your point of view is this
strong.
VIRGO -- Open your heart and make somebody else's experience a shining
moment. Put yourself in his or her shoes and walk a mile in them. Shared
circumstances lead to empathy, and empathy is the way to bridge gaps
between people that once preferred to focus on differences instead of
similarities. Good things start happening in a friendly environment. Once you
establish this comfort level, you'll have the key to many doors. Behind each
door is a stairway to another level, each one representing another chance to
do it a little differently, The game gets more interesting the longer you play.
LIBRA -- That short, straight line between two points runs through interesting
territory. If you go that way, you may have to take some surprising detours, but
isn't that how life's greatest lessons happen sometimes? Other people's
feelings are a big factor in how your day goes. If they're not ready to trust the
new or unusual, where does that leave you? Move slowly to avoid excess
friction. Save your more drastic moves for actual emergencies. You'll know
one when you see one, and this isn't it.
SCORPIO -- You never know what's going to happen. Maybe you already gave
up anticipating the universe's next move. Just when you thought you,were
tanking, everything that you lost comes back to you again. You might see this
as dumb luck, but there's actually an important lesson in your reversal of fortune.
Do you know whether your time is a gift or a loan? It doesn't matter as long as
you use it wisely. Even when you're lacking clues, you can still make educated.
guesses. Doing the math brings you closer to the truth. You really do have a:
choice.
SAGITTARIUS -- Others will gladly help when you ask the right questions. You
could even adapt .and make these conditions work for you. But if you do that,
be warned: What you once called familiar might seem less normal after this.
It could start to seem like the fulfillment of what you always secretly hoped for.
Now, start asking those questions even the big ones.
CAPRICORN -- Someone would like to pursue and capture the finer things,
but they'll have to wait. Basic issues need to be dealt with first. People who
are uncomfortable are raising their hands and asking questions. Stick to your
plan. As intense as your situation might seem, it's not all that far beyond the
normal range. All actions and reactions have been mapped out. Small factors
could play a big role in improving your condition. You decide.
AQUARIUS -- Sometimes it's therapeutic to keep busy, even if what you're doing
seems to be mundane. There mav be a lot of small chores and things that
need to be organised around the house, so hop to it. This is actually the perfect
remedy for the problem of thinking too much. If you think too much, you may
get overly emotional about something that's just not worth it. As a result, your
emotions may block you from achieving your immediate goals and
responsibilities. Don't worry. This is just a phase, and you will find your focus
again. If any storm is brewing in the air, you'll weather it with flying colours.
PISCES -- You're frisky and ready to play. You're open to the power of suggestion
and the spirit of invention. It's going to be a beautiful day no matter what. You're
getting all the attention from someone who wants to see you laugh. Not only
are the jokes funny, but the compliments are sincere. People crave your
company, rolling out the welcome mat as you approach their doors. Any place

Sunday Chronicle June 20, 2004


By Maggie Fox, Health and
Science Correspondent
WASHINGTON (Reuters) A
clever border collie that can
fetch at least 200 objects by
name may be living proof that
dogs truly understand human
language, German scientists
reported on Thursday.
The dog, named Rico, can
fetch a newly introduced object
when asked, even if he has never
heard the name of the object
before, the researchers say.
The findings, reported in
the journal Science, may not
surprise many dog owners. But
they are certain to re-ignite a
debate over what language is
and whether it is unique to
humans.
"We wonder what prevents
animals from speaking. The
limitations are not their capacity
to hear or understand," Julia
Fischer of the Max-Planck
Institute for Evolutionary
Anthropology in Leipzig told a
news conference in Berlin.
Rico's abilities seem to


follow a process called fast
mapping, seen when young
children start to learn to speak
and understand language, they
report.
Fast-mapping allows
children to form quick and rough
hypotheses about the meaning
of a new word the first time
they hear or see it.
The 10-year-old dog, which
beat human competitors to win
a popular German TV talent
show five years ago, lives as a
pet with his owners Witold
Krzeslowski and Susanne Baus
of Dortmund, western
Germany.
Baus told the Berlin news
conference that Rico
developed his skills while
laid low for nearly a year
after a shoulder operation, as
she tried to engage his mind
and let his body rest.
"I discovered this talent and
told my husband, who thought
I was mad. At the start it was
three to four objects, but it's
risen to 200 or 250," she said.
"I don't know what the limit"


might be, but we've now run
out of space."
In their report, Fischer ahd
colleagues wrote, "He was
reported by (the owners) to
-know the labels of more than
200 items, mostly children's
toys and balls, which he
correctly retrieved upon
request,"
SHOWING OFF
When they say "Rico, wo
ist die (where is the) Banane
(banana)," or "BigMac" or
"Panda," the dog searches, often
out of their sight, until he finds
the object.
Fischer and colleagues set
up experiments to test the dog,
and are satisfied that he
understands the words.
"Rico's vocabulary size is
comparable to that of language-
trained apes, dolphins, sea lions
and parrots."
When they put a new object
into a room filled with old
objects, Rico was able to fetch
it seven out of 10 times,
evidently figuring out that the

new word he was given must

Four weeks later, he
apparently remembered this
new word about half the time.


"This retrieval rate is
comparable to the performance
of three-year-old toddlers," the
researchers wrote.

WORLD DA to Combat


Hello there readers, in
observance of World Day to
Combat Desertification and
Drought which was
celebrated on Tuesday June
17, 2004, we will focus this
week's article on the topic of
desertification. This day is
aimed at raising awareness
on issues surrounding land
degradation. It also is the day
that marks the anniversary of
the UN Convention to
Combat Desertification
(UNCCD); this year marks
the 10th year since the


convention has been
formulated.

Guyana is one of the 167
countries that are signatories to
the UN Convention to Combat
Desertification and Drought
which we ratified in 1997.
Although desertification is not
a problem in Guyana, we
cannot ignore the fact that
improper land use practices can
cause sections of our land to
become unproductive.

WHAT IS
DESERTIFICATION?
I am sure everyone will be
able to associate desertification
with deserts. Well it is actually
the gradual destruction or


degradation of existing land that
has vegetative cover to slowly
form deserts.
Desertification occurs
slowly, as different areas of
degraded land spread and
merge together. It is
comparable to a slowly but
clearly progressing "skin
disease" over the planet. This
problem is often not
recognized and addressed by
decision makers, since it
occurs very slowly and over a
long period of time.
We are all aware that
fertile topsoil takes centuries
to form, but it can be washed
or blown away in a few
seasons. Human activities
such as over-cultivation,


GUYAA POWER & L
SUYAMNA PWER & LIaeT


deforestation and poor
irrigation practices combined
with climate change are
turning once fertile soils into
barren patches of land.
Arable land, which is land
suitable for farming, is
shrinking throughout the
world, threatening food
supply, particularly in poor
rural areas, and causing
numerous problems.

CAUSES OF
DESERTIFICATION

Desertification has
numerous causes; the main ones
will be highlighted below.

Overgrazing

Overgrazing is the major
cause of desertification
worldwide and it has a direct
result of the increasing
human population. With
more mouths to feed.more


land has to be devoted to
food production. More cattle
are placed to graze for longer
periods on smaller plots of
pasture land. This practice
puts increased pressure on
the land as grass is not given
a chance to emerge again and
land becomes eroded. Erosion
of topsoil makes the land
infertile or unproductive.
Degraded lands support no
vegetation and hence no
animal life.

Over-cropping

Over-cropping is the
growing of too many crops
year after year on the same
piece of land, without
allowing the land to be
rested. Like overgrazing,
over-croppi ig occurs in direct
response to the growing
human population. Because
of the need to feed more
people, large portions of
lands are being cultivated.
Over-cropping completely
destroys natural vegetation,
damages soil structure and
eventually exhausts the soil
of its nutrients.
Intensive cultivation occurs
often on marginal lands which
are at a high risk of crop failure.
Marginal lands are lands that
have limited fertility. In order to
boost crop yields farmers apply
large amounts of chemicals,
such as fertilisers. And when it
rains these chemicals drain into
nearby waterways polluting


them.

Deforestation

Deforestation is simply the
removal of extensive portions of
natural vegetation from an area.
Vegetation removal occurs for
various reasons: mining, the
establishment of agricultural
systems, construction of
houses, fuel wood, etc.
Removing the vegetation
exposes the soil to erosion and
leaching. Without the branches
and leaves to break its fall,
'down pours' can quickly
wash away soil for even the
gentlest slope. Cutting down
trees also takes away the
roots which help to hold soil
particles together.
Next week, we will
continue with some
corrective measures that can
be undertaken to lessen the
effects of desertification and
a bit on droughts.

Sunday Chronicle June 20. 2004


M OTHERS learn
to recognize
and care for
their puppies
as they are born. They
immediately begin to clean and
nurse the pups. This bond
sometimes is not as strong
when the puppies are born by
Caesarean Section. Such
mothers can have difficulty in
accepting their puppies for the


first 48 hours. This is less likely
to happen when some of the
puppies are born before the
surgery or when they are put to
the nipples before the sedation
wears off.
A novice mother often has
difficulty coping with a litter of
squirming puppies for the first
few hours. This is
understandable. With a little
help, she can be shown how to


nurse her puppies and keep
- from stepping on them.
Bitches which have a great
bond to humans or "spoiled"
female house pets (those who
believe or have been made to
believe that they are humans)
sometimes will not care for
their puppies until they are
allowed to regain their former
position in the family hierarchy.
Sometimes, due to a


hormonal imbalance, the milk
does not come down for the first
48 hours. During this time, the
bitch may reject her puppies.
Milk can be helped to flow by
injecting hormones. Once the
milk comes, the puppies are
accepted.
A hypothermic puppy, one
whose body temperature has
dropped below normal due to
sickness or constitutional
weakness, instinctively is pushed
out of the nest. The mother dog
might even eat the weak pup. This
is nature's way of culling and
ensuring that only the fittest and
most deserving will survive.
Other causes of puppy
rejection are post partum
infections and" complications
such as milk fever, mastitis and
acute metritis (see the last three
TVA columns).
Dams who continue to
ignore or reject their puppies
sometimes may be helped by
tranquilisers. If the problem is
due to maternal infection (e.g.
Mastitis) then puppies may be
removed and reared by hand (we
will deal with the hand-rearing
of nunnipes nrYt week nr the


week thereafter).
A bitch whelping her first
litter should be watched
closely. She may accidentally
confuse the puppy with the
placenta or injure a puppy
while attempting to sever the
cord and remove the
membranes (see TVA 29-02-
2004). Breeds with an
undershot jaw or a malocclusion
(mouth does not close correctly)
problem are particularly prone
to this difficulty.
A novice dam may attempt
to pick up and carry a puppy
to some other nest. Do not
allow your female to carry
puppies around in her mouth as
she may become nervous or
upset and bite down too hard.
Nest-seeking can be avoided if
the dam is introduced to her


litter box two weeks before she
is due to whelp and required to
sleep in it (see TVA, February
22, 2004).
In other cases, a nervous,
possessive or over-protective
dam can injure her puppies out
of emotional upset caused by
too much handling of the
puppies by children or strange
people. It is important not to
allow visitors for the first three
to four weeks especially whet
the bitch is high-strung or Pno
well socialised to people.
Please vaccinate yusr
pets and adopt-a-pet from the
GSPCA's Animal Clinic and
Shelter at Robb Street and
Orange Walk. Also, find out
more about our free spay and
neutering programme by

Forest


Whitaker



bringing



ammo to 'Gun'


By Ian Mohr and Borys Kit


L OS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) Forest
Whitaker will star in 'American Gun', an
ensemble drama described as "a series of
interwoven story lines focusing on how the
proliferation of guns in America affects and shapes lives,"
according to the filmmakers.
Sources said Donald Sutherland ('Cold Mountain'),
Linda Cardellini ('Scooby-Doo 2') and Garcelle Beauvais-
Nilon ('Barbershop 2') are in negotiations to join
Whitaker, who will also serve as an executive producer.
Whitaker's recent acting credits include 'Phone Booth' and
'Panic Room'.
'Gun's' cast of characters includes a Virginia gun shop
owner and his college student granddaughter who is
pressured to work at the family business; the single mother
of a suburban high school assassin; a school principal at a
violent inner-city high school; and an exemplary student
concealing a handgun at schooL
NewcomerAric Avelino will make his feature directing debut
on the tentatively titled IFC Films project, which he also wrote.
Shooting is slated to begin filming July 15.
"I'm aiming to make a powerful, topical movie that is large
in scope but independent in feeling, with characters who are
more honest than we often meet in contemporary film," said
Avelino.
'Gun' marks another politically charged project for
IFC, which this month came aboard Michael Moore's
'Fahrenheit 9/11' as a co-distributor with Lions Gate Films
and Harvey and Bob Weinstein's Fellowship Adventure
Group.
Early next year, the unit also is distributing writer-
helmer Kevin Willmott's 'CSA: The Confederate
States of America', a film that poses the question:
What would have happened if the South had won the
Civil War?
