SEVERAL cops remained
under dose arrest yesterday
and more persons connected
to self-confessed 'Death
squad' informant George
Bacchus were pulled in by
police for questioning as the
probe into Bacchus' killing


widened.
Some colleagues of the cops
under close arrest were placed
under tight scrutiny and asked
to report to police headquarters
each day, sources said.

in his bed early Thursday
morning, were also asked to

where they were grilled for
several hours by investigators.

In light of this new
development ranks were not
pleased and some were already
in the process of securing sick
leave, the source said.
The Dragon Alpha Squad
was a special group that tracked
hardcore criminals.
Police Commissioner Mr.
Winston Felix last week
promised a thorough probe into
the killing by a high level team
of investigators and more than
a dozen persons had been grilled
by yesterday.
Among those questioned
were the part owner of a funeral
parlour in Georgetown who is
related to a man accused of
killing Bacchus' brother earlier
this year, a Communications
Officer in the media, employees
of George Bacchus, and a
number of well-known and close
acquaintances of the dead
informant.
Police are expected to this
week also question leaders of
the main Opposition People's
National Congress Reform
(PNCR), TV 'talk show' hosts
and media persons who had

contact with Bacchus, a source
said yesterday.
PNCR Leader, Mr. Robert
Corbin on Thursday handed
over to Felix a video tape of an
interview done with Bacchus
and a sworn affidavit by the
murdered informant.
People's Progressive Party/
Civic (PPP/Civic) Member of
Parliament, Ms. Shirley
Edwards and media operative,
Mr. Michael Gordon, on Friday
voluntarily submitted written
statements to the police on their
contact with Bacchus.
Bacchus had claimed he
was the key informant for the
'Phantom Squad', an alleged
group of 'for-hire' vigilantes
who he charged was responsible
for the murder of close to 40
men, many of whom were
wanted by the police.
Bacchus further claimed
that he was the key informant
for the group until the hit men
began to target individuals
unconnected with any crime. He
said that when he began to
speak out, the men threatened
Sto turn their guns on him.
He implicated Home
Affairs Minister, Mr. Ronald
Gajraj in the operations of the
death squad, a charge the
minister has repeatedly denied.
Bacchus' subsequent
appearances in the media led to
calls from several political
parties most notably the
PNCR and civil society
organizations for Gajraj to step
aside or resign to facilitate a
Commission of Inquiry into the
allegations.
The minister offered to
go on leave to allow an
impartial investigation into
the allegations against him.

last month appointed a three-
member commission consisting
of Justice of Appeal, Mr. Ian
Chang; Mr. Ivan Crandon; and
Mr. Norman MacLean, to
spearhead an inquiry into the
allegations by Bacchus.
The 'informant' said he
would have testified about the
death squad to the commission
of inquiry.
According to Edwards,
Bacchus had approached her to
facilitate the renouncement of
his previous allegations against
Gajraj and she had arranged for
Gordon to do the interview in
which he cleared the minister of
the charge.
Bacchus later admitted to
having done the interview on
video tape but claimed he was
offered $10,000,000 and safe
passage out of the country to
do it.
Bacchus was due to
testify in the preliminary
inquiry that is under way into
the murder charge against
the two men he claimed
killed his brother, Shafeek
Bacchus, outside his home
earlier this year. He said in
media interviews that he was
the intended target of the
men who gunned down his.
brother on January 5.
He claimed that those who
shot his brother were members
of the death squad.
Indications are that
Bacchus was shot with a .38
gun at close range in his bed at
his Princes Street, Georgetown
home at about 02:45 hrs
Thursday, police sources said.
One man told investigators
he saw two men on a motorcycle
ride up to the yard and shortly
after shots rang out.
But he claimed he saw only
one man riding away, the source
said.
Investigators have been
baffled, by other aspects of the
case.
Bacchus kept several dogs
in his yard, including a pit bull,
but neighbours did not hear any


of them barking or attacking any
intruder or intruders.
Then there was the
apparent ease of entry
available to possible killers,
especially in light of Bacchus'
repeated claims that there
was a price on his head, the
source said.
He said main doors and a
side window adjacent to the
stairway on the southern side of
the building were left open.
Investigators are also
looking into the absence of
anybody else sleeping that night
in the area of' the house where
Bacchus slept.
Bacchus, one source said,
usually slept in his room with
two male members of the
household sleeping just outside
the-door.
However, due to a recent
spat, the two men decided to
sleep on the ground floor of the
four-storey building while
Bacchus slept on the first floor.
Bacchus' extended family
usually occupied the house
along with two handymen,
neighbours said.
"Most of the people living
there were not there Thursday
night", the source said, adding
that investigators were also
looking into this aspect of the
case.
"There are several puzzling
aspects we are trying to
unravel", he said.'
A. neighbour said that
shortly after he heard the shots,
he was asked by Bacchus'
nephew and two of the
family's helpers who
reside in the building to call
the police.
The neighbour said that at
no time did he hear any vehicle
or any other sounds of
movement after the gunshots
rang out.
He said it was hard to
conceive of anybody getting
easy access to the Bacchus
residence because of the
numerous floodlights on the
property.

THE Indian Arrival
Committee (IAC) has
condemned the criminal
behaviour of unruly
protesters on Regent Street,
Georgetown, Friday and said
the police should have
arrested those breaking the
law.
Pockets of protesters
moved around streets in the
city's main shopping area
Friday ordering owners to close
stores and many obeyed out of
fear of previous looting and
attacks from opposition-led
street demonstrators in recent
years.
The IAC said the "unruly
band of PNCR-led thugs"


prevented many persons from
conducting their lawful and
legitimate business on Friday.
It expressed
disappointment at the failure of
the Police Force to apprehend
those persons caught blatantly
breaking the law on Regent and
Camp streets.

register its extreme
disappointment with the

Police Force, once again, to

In the latest attack aimed at
derailing the transition to an in-
terim Iraqi government on June
30, guerrillas detonated a car
bomb in the town of Hilla, 100
km (62 miles) south of Baghdad,
killing 17 Iraqis and wounding
40, the U.S. army said.
The Al Jazeera satellite
channel showed footage of the
three men said to be Turkish
hostages crouching before
masked gunmen and holding up
their passports. It said it had re-
ceived the footage and a state-
ment from Zarqawi's Tawhid
and Jihad group, threatening to
kill the Turkish captives within
72 hours.
The group's deadline would
expire before the end of a NATO
summit tomorrow and Tuesday
in Istanbul attended by U.S.
President George W. Bush, who
will discuss a NATO role in
Iraq.
Zarqawi's group beheaded a
South Korean hostage last week
after Seoul rejected a demand to
withdraw its forces from Iraq,
and last month decapitated a
U.S. captive. Both killings were.
filmed in footage posted on Web
sites used by Islamists.
Zarqawi has also claimed
responsibility for a series of
bloody attacks, most recently
a wave of suicide bombings
and armed assaults in five
cities on Thursday that
killed more than 100 Iraqis
and three U.S. soldiers.
Turkey is not part of the
U.S.-led occupation force in Iraq
but many Turkish contractors
work as drivers and support
staff for American forces.
Jazeera said the statement it
received stated the hostages
would be killed unless 'Turkish
forces and companies that sup-


target inside this country. He is
a very effective terrorist," Briga-
dier General Mark Kimmitt,
deputy director of operations for
the U.S. military in Iraq, told a
news conference in Baghdad yes-
terday.
U.S. forces have mounted
three "precision strikes" in the
rebellious Iraqi city of Falluja
over the past week aimed at de-
stroying Zarqawi's safe houses
and killing his followers.
Kimmitt said the latest
strike, on Friday, may have come
close to killing the Jordanian mili-
tant. He said several cars were
seen driving away from the build-


scene said no one had been
killed.
"I swear to God, nobody
died here except this rabbit,"
said a man in an Arab robe,
dangling a dead rabbit in one
hand.
Iraqi guerrillas and tribal
leaders in Falluja have denied
that Zarqawi is in the city.
"This is a lie to excuse the
strikes by occupation planes
on the houses of citizens," said
a statement from the General
Council of Falluja Tribal Lead-
ers.
Hundreds of Iraqis were
killed in Falluja in April in


Allawi warned that violence
could force a delay in national
elections due to be held by the
end of January, a key step in

"It's not absolute yet,"
Allawi said of the election date,
according to excerpts of an in-
terview with CBS News.
"We are committed to
elections and one of the tasks
is really to work toward
achieving these objectives.
However, security will be the

WASHINGTON, (Reuters) -
Democrat John Kerry courted
the crucial Hispanic vote .yes-
terday by promising closer,
more respectful U.S.-Latin
America ties and relief from
President George W. Bush's
"one-note insistence" on free-
trade pacts..
Kerry, who next month will
be formally anointed as Bush's
challenger in the Nov. 2 election,
promised to triple to almost $20
million the amount the United
States contributesuto the National
Endowment for Democracy, an
organisation created in 1983 to

eter to facilitate legitimate
travel by "harmonising" cus-
toms, immigration, security
policies and travel documents.
Kerry envisioned a "commu-
nity of theAmericas" that would
share goals such as the war on
poverty and drugs but whose bot-
tom line would be defence of de-
mocracy and the rule of law.
"We must look to our
neighbours as partners, not
.second-class citizens," he told
a conference of the National
Association of Latino Elected
and Appointed Officials.
Hispanics are the largest
U.S. minority group. Bush nar-
rowly won the White House in
2000 in part by cutting into the
traditionally Democratic His-
panic base, drawing 35 per cent
of its vote. During that cam-
paign, Bush promised "to look
South, not as an afterthought,
but as a fundamental commit-
ment of my presidency."
Except for trade policy
- in which he scored major
victories with the comple-
tion of several agreements,
Bush's commitment to Latin
America waned after the
Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on
the United States.
"Instead of being a good
neighbour, the president has ig-
nored a wide range of ills in-
cluding political and financial
crises, runaway unemploy-
ment and drug trafficking,"


Kerry said. "And his one-note
policy toward Latin America of
one-size-fits-all trade agree-
ments have stripped the respect
and partnership" that marked
the 1990s.
The four-term senator from
Massachusetts, who voted for
the North American Free Trade
Agreement with Mexico and
Canada and other pacts that
have been blamed for job losses
in the United States, said he
would renegotiate the Ceintral
American Free Trade Agreement
with El Salvador, Honduras,
Nicaragua, Guatemala and Costa
Rica.
"Trade without respect-is
not what our neighbours want,
and neither is one-note insis-
tence on free-trade agreements,"
he said. "As president, I will
fight for labour and environ-
ment protections in every single
trade agreement." '
Kerry, who has accused the
Bush administration of helping
to undermine elected govern-
ments in Haiti and Venezuela,
said he would actively promote
democracy in Cuba by support-
ing legitimate dissent.
"We can't sit by and watch
as mob violence drives a presi-
dent from office, like what hap-
pened in Bolivia or Argentina
- or even encourage him to flee
as we did in Haiti," he said.
"We will not welcome a govern-
ment named by a military junta

Kerry did not mention Cu-

embargo against Havana that is

political clout in Florida, where

Judge slams racial bias at T&T missions


by Reshma Ragoonath

SAN Fernando judge Carlton
Best has criticised the racial
imbalance at several of
Trinidad and Tobago's high
commissions, as he refused to
quash an injunction against
Prime Minister Patrick Man-
ning and the Ministry of For-
eign Affairs.
The injunction prevents
them fromappointing anyone to
a London High Commission
post vacated by diplomat
Bissoon Boodhai.
Yesterday, Best, presiding
over a judicial review applica-
tion brought against the Prime


Minister and the ministry by
foreign service executive officer
II Feroza Ramjohn, said the
subsidiary issue in the case was
that she was of East Indian/
Asian origin.
He also said the matter ad-
dressed an imbalance between the
African and East Indian/Asian
ethnicities at T&Ts missions.
. Ramjohn, who has 33 years
of service, was appointed on
May 24 by Manning, on an
emergency basis, to replace
Boodhai.
Boodhai, along with two
others, was charged with con-
spiracy to traffic cocaine in a
diplomatic pouch.


However, the transfer was
rescinded by permanent secre-
tary in the Foreign Affairs Min-
istry Yvonne Gittens-Joseph on
June 7, without an explanation.
Ramjohn has claimed that
there was a "serious and glaring
imbalance" in the ethnic compo-
sition of the commissions' staff.
In response to Ramjohn's
claims of racial imbalance at
the 14 foreign missions,
Gittens-Joseph, in her affida-
vit, said Ramjohn was incor-
rect to state only 10 per cent
of the staff were East Indians.
She said that at the London
High Commission, five out of
25 employees were East Indi-


ans; in Toronto, the figure was
five out of 15, and in the New
York consulate it was seven out
of 30.
Agreeing with Ramjohn,
Best said the real reason for re-
scinding the transfer letter "was
because of race."
He said that based on this
situation which was "arbitrary
and unfair" he granted the order.
The judge made these com-
ments in response to an appli-
cation to quash the injunction
submitted by State attorney
Russell Martineau SC.
Ramjohn's attorney, Anand
Ramlogan, contested
Martineau's application to


quash the injunction which was
granted on June 11, stating he
would consent to a variation in-
stead.
Martineau said Ramjohn's
revocation was.due to an alle-
gation which deemed her a na-
tional security risk.
Gittens-Joseph stated that she
saw a security department intelli-
gence report which indicated that
Ramjohn "may be involved in a
major conspiracy to steal a diplo-
matic pouch which went missing on
or about June 5,2001."
She said the pouch con-
tained 200 T&T passports.
However, Ramlogan ob-
jected.
He said his client had re-
ceived no notice of disciplinary
action nor any evidence of such
an allegation.


Bli assBs to return Guantanaf~1mo det[a1inees


By Jeremy Lovell

LONDON, (Reuters) British
Prime Minister Tony Blair
has asked U.S. President
George W. Bush for the return
of four Britons still held in the
Guantanamo Bay prison
camp, a lawyer acting for one
of the detainees said yester-
day.
"It has emerged from the
government papers that have
been filed in the court that within
the last month Tony Blair has
made a personal plea to George
Bush," Louise Christian, a law-
yer representing detainee Feroz
Abbasi, told Sky News.
"The families will be enor-
mously heartened... and will
very much be hoping that this
will result in the four remaining
British citizens being brought
back very soon," she added.
The court papers form part
of the British government's de-
fence against a legal action
brought by lawyers for two of
the British detainees seeking a
court order forcing Britain to for-
mally demand their return.

2001 attacks on New York and
Washington.
A spokesman for Blair's of-
fice at 10 Downing Street refused
to comment on whether or not
the prime minister had made a
direct appeal to Bush.
"The position is now as it has
been for some time. We are in-
volved in discussions with the
Americans. These discussions
take place at different levels," he
told Reuters.

to get into the details at the mo-

added.
Washington says the four
pose a security threat, but has
so far not provided proof or al-
lowed their lawyers to see them.

concerns? Are they legitimate,

Witness protection


project

AMNESTY International is simply doing its job, which it
normally does well, in calling for a witness protection
programme in Guyana following the murder of George
Bacchus in the early hours of Thursday morning.
But AI would know that this is easier called for than to es-
tablish with appropriate and effective mechanisms and safeguards
here and in other countries of the Caribbean Community afflicted
by killings and serious crimes.
The people of Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, for instance,
would themselves be aware of the need for a witness protection
programme, given the instances of sudden disappearance or murder
of key witnesses in criminal cases before the courts.
Such was the outrage in Trinidad and Tobago over threats to
witnesses, police, magistrates and judges at a period of sensa-


tional court cases involving narco-trafficking, that the then
United National Congress administration took the initiative to
engage CARICOM in consideration of a region-wide criminal
justice protection programme.
Interest in such a project deepened sufficiently for the
issue to be taken up at the historic 1997 summit meeting
in Barbados between then US. President Bill Clinton and
Heads of Government of the Caribbean.
Unfortunately, although the creation of a criminal justice
protection programme formed part of what emerged as the
"Bridgetown Accord" from that summit, it remains a project
yet to be seriously pursued collectively by the Caribbean
Community.
Guyana and other member states of CARICOM may
have ideas on how to approach such a project But it must
be appreciated that for it to be really effective, especially
in these days of growing trans-border crimes and expand-
ing criminal networks, it is certainly desirable for it to
be done together.
This does not excuse any administration of the commu-
nity, including Guyana, from demonstrating greater vigilance
in ensuring the protection of key witnesses in court cases or,
indeed trial magistrates and judges.
All of them and others would, of course, have an obliga-
tion to first indicate to the authorities the specific problems
they face and to formally request protection.


In the particular case involving the murder of George
Bacchus, the Guyanese people have been reminded by Police
Commissioner Winston Felix that for the Police Force to pro-
vide protection it must be at the request of the individual who
wants such protection.
"We cannot", stressed the Commissioner, "enforce pro-
tection on someone who doesn't want it and if he wants it,
he/she must seek it in the correct manner..."
We think this is quite a reasonable position.

After murder comes a long-awaited 'statement'


IT MAY be a spectacular co-
incidence, but in a country
where conspiracy theories
abound, the challenge be-
longs to the People's Na-
tional Congress Reform to
explain why it was only pos-
sible to hand over to the po-
lice within nine hours AF-
TER the murder of George
Bacchus a sworn affidavit
the slain death squad infor-
mant is said to have made, as
well as a taped statement by
him.
Why the long, long wait to
give to the police such informa-
tion, and only after the death
of the man whose claims had
fuelled so much controversies
and tension?
Both the Bharrat Jagdeo
administration and Robert
Corbin's PNCR have much at
stake in the outcome of a thor-
ough police probe into the cir-
cumstances surrounding the
murder of Bacchus the key
figure in allegations of a killing
spree by a phantom death
squad, and his contradictory
claims about the involvement
of Home Affairs Minister
Ronald Gajraj.
For more than four months
the PNCR has been making
politics with Bacchus' allega-
tions of death squad killings
and claimed involvement of
Minister Gajraj.
For all the media coverage
provided, some with sensa-
tional claims, neither Bacchus
nor the PNCR thought it ap-
propriate to make available to


Bacchus chose to go into hiding
with his clainj that he was fearful
for his life. The police kept ap-
pealing to him to turn up with his
lawyers) if necessary to make a
statement in support of his death
squad allegations and assured him
of protection. But he refused to
cooperate.
The PNCR, on the other
hand, seized the opportunity of
the death squad controversy to


mount anti-government pro-
tests, demanded the resigna-
tion of Minister Gajraj and
wrote to diplomatic missions,
CARICOM and the United Na-
tions.
But it also refused to share
with the Police Commissioner or
the Director of Public Prosecu-
tions ANY evidence for justice to
take its course.
For its part, the govern-
ment, after pussy-footing for
too long, finally announced
last month the establishment of
a three-member Presidential
Commission to probe the death
squad allegations and claimed


George Bacchus


the police EVIDENCE they
claimed to possess in support
of the allegations that have so
tarnished Guyana's image.
Instead, the 51-year-old


involvement of Home Affairs
Minister Gajraj.
Questions quickly arose
about possible conflict of interest
involving one of the named com-


missioners and that was to
cause a further delay in the
probe by the Presidential
Commission.

SHOWTIME ON TV

Later, within the past two
weeks, PPP/C parliamentarian,
Shirley Edwards, went public
with a statement disclosing
that George Bacchus, her


neighbour of long standing, had
made a statement confessing to
some false accusations against
Minister Gajraj.
She subsequently said she
would make available that in-
formation to the Presidential
Commission of Inquiry. But
she was also quickly faced
with hostility from PNCR ac-
tivists, as reported.
For the PNCR, in con-
trast, it was' showtime on the
party-linked Channel 9 televi-
sion with Mr. Corbin inter-
viewing Bacchus, a man
wanted by the police for
crimes committed, and also
needed to provide a statement
to the police about his sensa-
tional claims of death squad
killings and a ministerial con-
nection. It was not a live in-
terview.
Writing in this column on
May 23, under the title 'Bluff-
ing politics in death squad
probe', following the an-
nouncement of the Presidential
Commission, I stated:
"Let none be so politi-
cally obtuse whatever his
or her ethnicity or political
affiliation that if it is re-
ally in possession of in-
criminating evidence, the
PNCR would want to miss a
good opportunity to expose
Minister Gajraj and, by ex-
tension, create serious prob-
-lems for the government."
"If therefore", I added, "it
is not bluffing, the PNCR


must deliver on its allegations
instead of rushing off letters to
the United Nations and refusing
to cooperate with the police in-
vestigations...."
Well, the PNCR was still in
the mood of non-cooperation
with the police in the case in-
volving George Bacchus and his
death squad allegations, plus
"information" that the party
also claimed to have otherwise
obtained.
The PNCR and sec-
Stions of the local media
apparently knew more
about the whereabouts of
George Bacchus than the
police.

S COMMISSIONER
h). EELI
Indeed, if we are to be
guided by Police Commissioner
Winston Felix's comments to
the local media last Thursday,
following the murder of the
self-confessed death squad in-
.formant, they could not have
afforded him any protection
since he did not wish to be in
contact with them.
If, as Bacchus and the
PNCR have more than sug-


gested, rogue cops were in-
volved in death squad kill-
ings, as well as some "busi-
ness" people, this cannot be
a valid excuse for failing to
provide any police officer of
their choice with whatever
evidence they claimed to pos-
sess in order to help the
course of justice.
This was not done
- until hours after
Bacchus was killed.
Are we to believe
that the Guyana Police
Force, which had been
so cooperative with
the PNC during its 24
years in power, has
become so corrupt
that it cannot be
trusted with a written
statement from an in-
dividual like George
Bacchus, or by the
PNC itself? This is
too bizarre to believe.
Strangely, how-
ever, after making Home Af
politics with this na-
tional issue for some FOUR
MONTHS, without going to
the police with any informa-
tion, the PNCR found feet
and hands within nine


Police Commissioner Winston Felix


hours of the murder of
Bacchus to travel and de-
liver to Police Commissioner
Felix what it said was a sworn
Affidavit by Bacchus and also
a taped statement by the de-
ceased.
It may be a coincidence
also that on Thursday to Fri-
day, the current Chairman of
CARICOM, Prime Minister
Baldwin Spencer, was on of-
ficial business in Guyana that
included meetings with Presi-


fairs Minister Ronald Gajraj
dent Jagdeo and Opposition
Leader Corbin, whose party
had earlier called on the
Community to deal with the
death squad controversy.
CARICOM, of course, could
not act in the absence of cred-
ible evidence.
Perhaps Corbin or the Com-
munity Secretariat should be
able to tell the Guyanese and
wider Caribbean public if any
evidence in support of the alle-
gations of ministerial involve-
ment in death squad killings of
criminals was ever made avail-
able to CARICOM, or any of
its Heads of Government, and
if so, when?
For now, the police must be
left to thoroughly investigate the
murder of Bacchus and carefully
consider and act, as necessary, on
the Affidavit and taped statement
the PNCR submitted to Commis-
sioner Felix only AFTER the
shooting death of the controversial
death squad informant.
The big question remains:
who killed George Bacchus?
The number and compo-
sition of those already ques-
tioned and/or arrested,
among them cops and rela-
tives, have certainly height-
ened interest in the current
police probe.


Troubling questions for urgent answers







SUNDAY CHMROICi, June 27, 2004


by Robert Persaud

HISTORICALLY, on the in-
ternational stage, the entire
country (government and op-
position) always takes one
position on the protection of
Guyana's territorial integrity
and in advancing various bor-
der Initiatives regarding Ven-
ezuela and Suriname. There
has always been one position:
a Guyana position on the com-
plex issue of border policy.
Now it seems as if from the
opposition bench the PNCR
wants to articulate and ad-
vance its own border policy.
The PNCR has embarked on
a campaign to undermine the
national border policy and
Guyana's recourse to the
Convention of the Laws of the
Seas.

UNDERMINE
The June 13 signing of a
Memorandum of Understanding
(MOU) by Mr. Robert Corbin
of the PNCR and Suriname's ex-
coup leader Desi Bouterse of the
National Democratic Party is
not in our national interest. The
signing signals to the Surinamese
local political division over our
border policy. This is the first
time that the PNCR has taken
such an irrational and unpatriotic
stance on border matters. Never
in our post-Independence his-
tory has any political party
sought to undermine the
country's border policy. By
slipping across the border to
sign an MOU is an attempt to
undermine the current border
policy of this nation. Whose
side is Mr. Corbin on anyway?
That this irregular and
most undiplomatic behaviour
follows on the heels of recent
progress on the composition
of the arbitral tribunal under
the United Nations Conven-
tion on the Laws of the Seas
to resolve the Guyana/
Suriname offshore maritime
dispute is no mere coinci-
dence. Mr. Corbin, when he
signed the document in


Paramaribo (since Bouterse
cannot leave Suriname as he
is wanted internationally for
drug trafficking), was fully
aware of the immense ben-
efits all Guyanese would de-
rive from the hydrocarbon
(including oil) resources in the
disputed maritime area. He
was also aware of the details
of the country's position and
the importance of a common
and united Guyana position.
The Sunday Stabroek edito-
rial (no friend of the PPP/C
Government) of June 20, 2004
captioned: 'One Voice' was
baffled by this anti-national po-
sition of Corbin and his party.
"...no opposition party in this
country should be engaging in its
own separate diplomacy over
the border; there should only
ever be one national border
policy, and the legitimate author-
ity to define and execute that
policy is the government of the
day."

IGNORE
Mr. Corbin and his party on
February 25, 2004 boycotted a
parliamentary consultation
called by the President of
Guyana to discuss the country's
invoking of Article 287 of the
United Nations Convention on
the Laws of the Seas to resolve
the offshore maritime dispute.
Congress Place then
launched an anti-Guyana
campaign against the admin-
istration efforts to achieve
some settlement to the long-
standing dispute. The PNCR
described the Government's
move to resolve the dispute as
'diversionary' from local is-
sues. Coincidentally, the
Surinamese were also mak-
ing the same argument. The
PNCR and the Surinamese
might have been reading from
the same tip-sheet.
The PNCR cannot com-
plain with justification that it
has no avenue to contribute to
the country's border policy,
both formally and informally.
Formally, at the level of the Par-


Betrayal!


THE UN Conference on
Trade and Development
(UNCTAD) has just con-
cluded its 11th summit meet-
ing in the Brazilian finan-
cial centre, of Sao Paulo.
The one-week forum,
which began on June 14, was
attended by representatives of
180 countries, and was aimed
at finding solutions to easing
poverty worldwide.
This quadrennial meeting
discussed a wide-ranging agenda
but, more specifically, it ad-
dressed major issues on how to
improve access by developing
countries to existing markets,
and the need to correct the im-
balances in the world trading
system. It also examined vari-
ous ways to develop the link
between the national and inter-
national levels of trade and de-
velopment.
Taking off from the WTO
and the FTAA negotiations,
both of which collapsed last
year in Mexico, the developing
countries renewed their attacks
on the existing barriers in world
trade. Thailand's Prime Minis-


liament, there is a sectoral com-
mittee on Foreign Relations
chaired by PNCR frontbencher
Clarissa Reihl. There is always
an open line to the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs and even the
Office of the President to make
suggestions. Informally, past
PNC-regime officials are cur-
rently engaged by the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs to work on
Guyana's case. The Sunday
Stabroek editorial notes: "It
just so happens, however, that
in the particular instance of the
Suriname border, while there
has been plenty to criticise in
the administration's approach
over the years, there can be no
quarrel with the more recent
decision to take the maritime
dispute to Hamburg" (arbitral

of the Seas).

STRANGE ALLIANCE

The obvious question is:
Why would the PNCR and
Corbin seek to align themselves
with Mr. Bouterse? The an-
swers perhaps could be found
in Bouterse's history and back-
ground.
Bouterse was a military of-
ficer who took power in a
bloody coup in 1980. His mili-
tary government lasted for a
number of years that saw op-
position and other democratic
elements being killed including
1982 'December murders' and
1986 Negro Village of Moiwana
events. Like under any undemo-
cratic and military regimes, the
country was in a state of tur-
moil. His rule also marked the


UN Secretary-General Kofi
Annan, in his address to the
conference, pleaded for compro-
mise on crucial trade concerns,
and called for true partnerships
between developed and devel-
oping countries. He demanded
action to create a "critical mass
of new resources to deal with a
wide spectrum of human
hardship". New resources, he
said, would help countries to
rely on themselves and would be
an investment in the future
well-being and security of the
world.
S While ministers were deliv-
ering their statements in the ple-
nary sessions, leading trade ne-
gotiators were also meeting to
find ways to reduce or remove
global trade barriers, but very
little progress was made. Simi-
larly, discussions aimed at estab-
lishing a free trade zone involv-
ing the four Mercosur countries
and the European Union
showed very little forward
movement in the process.
However, it is expected that
an agreement should be reached
by October, even though both


'.tart of a bloody civil war. Dur-
ing that time, the military and
Mr. Bouterse were suspected of
being involved in a number of il-
legal activities including the traf-
ficking of narcotics and weap-
ons.
In 1999, Bouterse was con-
victed in absentia for drug traf-
ficking. There is an international
warrant out for his arrest, as
such he cannot travel outside of
Suriname lest he be arrested and
sent to prison in the Nether-

Is this the same Corbin, the
law and order 'high priest' who
now links up with Bouterse?
The PNCR Leader, if he
wishes to make a contribution
to the national border policy,
must do so at home using the
various mechanisms and even
the media. Sneaking off across


sides differ widely on the im-
portant issues of agricultural
subsidies, services and govern-
ment procurement.
There were concerted de-
mands by poor countries for the
rich nations to remove agricul-
tural subsidies to ensure a fair
trade environment enabling third
world farmers to compete in a
fair-trade environment. This
would certainly help to raise
living standards, they argued.
It will be recalled that the
refusal by developed coun-
tries to remove agricultural
subsidies led to the break-
down of negotiations in the
WTO and in the FTAA nego-
tiations. No doubt, this was a
matter of concern at the
UNCTAD meeting. In an ef-
fort to break the stalemate,
U.S. Trade Representative
Robert Zoellick held separate
discussions with the Brazil-
ian Foreign Minister, the
Australian Trade Minister,
the Indian Commerce and In-
dustry Minister, and the

Trade Commissioner of

All of them declared that
the discussions showed some
progress. But they also agreed
that many technical details have
yet to be resolved ahead of a
July deadline in the stalled Doha
round of WTO talks aimed at
drastically reducing subsidies,
tariffs and other barriers to glo-
bal commerce. L
Indeed, there now seems
to be a shift in the direction
of eliminating subsidies. The
EU in May agreed to remove
export subsidies on farm pro-
duce which affect producers in
poor countries. The United
States has also indicated that
it was ready to remove its
much smaller export subsi-
dies.
However, the EU and the
United States made it clear that
only if poorer countries agree to
open their own markets would
they be ready to grant these
concessions.
But the conference was not
all about agricultural subsidies.
Participants in numerous inter-
active sessions, seminars and
other associated events ex-
plored links between trade and
development. They
brainstormed on how to de-
velop the capacity and com-
petitiveness of developing coun-
tries; and they examined ways
to strengthen UNCTAD as a


forum to advance South-South
cooperation, to foster greater
understanding between North
and South, and to reach mutu-
ally agreed solutions in address-
ing impediments to trade and
development. These sessions
also discussed the new chal-
lenges and opportunities pre-
sented by modern information
and communication technolo-
gies, including the use of e-com-
merce and access to the Internet
for the developing world.
Major economic concerns
affecting developing coun-
tries Were also'expressed, in
particular the problems of
export commodity prices and
the heavy debt burden that
plague so many developing
countries.
During the plenary ses-
sion, Guyana's Minister of
Foreign Trade and Interna-
tional Cooperation, Clement
Rohee, drew a link between
these two problems. He urged
UNCTAD to give priority at-
tention to the serious prob-
lems of commodity depen-
dence and long term declines
and sharp fluctuations of ex-
port commodity prices. He
added: "These problems seri-
ously impede development
and poverty eradication ef-
forts of many developing
countries. They also seri-
ously limit their ability to
service and repay their for-
eign debts."

UNCTAD's Virtual Institute on
Trade and Development a global
academic network designed to pre-
pare future generations for active
participation in the global
economy, by gaining access to the
latest UNCTAD analytical work

new partnerships in support of
bio-trade in Brazil, Ecuador and the
Amazon region, which are expected
to promote trade and private sec-
tor investment to sustainable use
and conservation of the environ-
ment. -
Will developing countries
see any benefits from this con-
ference? It may be argued from
the negative perspective that
the UNCTAD meeting was just
one more international confer-
ence which has rehashed issues
of poverty discussed in the nu-
merous regional and interna-
tional forums. The growing
masses of poor people in devel-
oping countries cannot afford
the patience to endure the long
period action plans take to
materialise. On the other hand,
if there is an immediate follow
up in exploiting the positive
shift by the developed countries
on the question of agricultural
subsidies in the international
trade negotiations, tangible trade
benefits will be passed down to
the poorer countries.
Countries like Guyana and
others in the Caribbean region
will also have to re-think their
trade strategies when the
Mercosur-EU free trade ar-
rangement finally materialises,
hopefully before the end of the
year. It will be even better if
they begin this re-examination
now. The time is opportune for
the CARICOM countries to de-
velop a more formal relationship
with Mercosur in order to ob-
tain trade benefits from this de-
veloping process. Guyana al-
ready has a trade agreement
with Brazil, the largest
Mercosur partner, and surely
this link can be practicably de-
veloped into the long-talked-
about economic bridge between
CARICOM and the rest of
South America.
This South-South ar-
rangement must be nurtured
and built up to match the ex-
isting North-South arrange-
ment that CARICOM has
with the countries of North
America and the European
Union.

by Oscar Ranmjeet in Florida

A GUYANESE Professsor has
written a book which assesses
the impact of the 9/11 terror-
ist attack on Caribbean states
and examines the institu-
tional and operational terror-
ism response capacity of se-
curity agencies in the region.
The publication, 'Caribbean
Security in the Age of Terror:
Challenge and Change'examines
the security issues which have
come into prominence since the
September 11 terrorist attack in
the USA provide both the star-
tling point and the focus for the
comprehensive survey of con-
temporary security issues in the
Caribbean.
Dr. Ivelaw Griffith, who was
a journalist in Guyana, is cur-
rently Dean of the Honors Col-
lege and Professor of Political


Science at Florida International
University who said that he
sought contributions' from an
impressive array of academics,
policy-makers and front-line se-
curity practitioners from the
Caribbean, Canada, Europe and
the USA
In addition to security, the
585-page book also examines
crime, drug trafficking, terri-
torial disputes, environmen-
tal degradation and the rapid
spread of HIV/AIDS. epi-
demic and how the small
states adapt policies and prac-
tices to the new regional and
global circumstances repre-
sent the challenge and the
change.
Professor Griffith said, "I
dedicated the volume to the
victims of 9/11 from Caribbean
Basin countries and I list the
countries from which there


were victims and the numbers
of victims for which I have ac-
curate records." He added "1

--T-- --SUNDAV- CuROlCEe -June- 2ib2004


by Norman Faria

ALFRED Pragnell, perhaps
Barbados' most versatile and
creative broadcaster, story-
teller and actor, has died at
age 71. Family members said
he had been suffering from
cancer.
He had started his broad-
casting career with Barbados
Redifussion, a British firm
which also had a station in Brit-
ish Guiana, in 1956.
Among those he worked
with at the station were
Guyanese-Barbadians Frank
Pardo and Olga Lopes-Seale. His
suave, soothing voice, coupled
with impeccable pronunciation,
was greatly admired by main-
stream Barbadian society. As in
Guyana, before the advent of
television (the island's sole TV
station came on line in 1962)


and other radio stations;
Redifussion was the only sta-
tion; except for those with
short wave sets.
Among the programmes he
hosted was the popular 'Sun-
day Magazine' where he played
oldies, classics and engaged in
serious and intelligent mono-
logues. It was a welcome and
relaxing alternative to the
mostly raucous, frenetic, banal
and unimaginative 'jump and
wave' and other noise heard on
many of the Barbados' stations.
With the replacement of old
copper cable technology of
Rediffusion with wireless, his
programmes would also be
heard in neighboring Eastern
Caribbean islands (even in
Guyana, this writer is told!):


There was also a name change -
the station became 'Voice of
Barbados'. He later served as
Programme Manager for many
years until his early retirement
in 1988, remaining with the firm
as a consultant to train new an-
nouncers.
Observed Barbadian
writer Jeannette Layne-
Clarke in her tribute at his
funeral service: "AP as he
was affectionately known -
had a distinct distaste for
sloppiness, and he was per-
petually disturbed by the
cocky, cavalier attitudes
flaunted by so many pretend-
ers in today's laid-back work
environment"
Pragnell read many of
Layne-Clarke's whimsical and


humourous poems about Bajan
hypocrisy and gossipy prac-
tices (a reoccurring whipping
topic was the dressing up and
attending funerals of deceased
you didn't even know to see
what everybody else was wear-
ing).
Aside from his broadcasting
work, he was a stalwart mem-
ber of the Greenroom Players,
an amateur theatre group that
-for the first time brought to-
gether white and black Barbadi-
ans (some expatriates also
joined). This writer remembers
first seeing Alfred live when he
acted in Shakespeare's Twelfth
Night, which my secondary
school class went to see.
A member of the island's
white community, he had
grown up in Chelsea Road, a
middle class district near the
island's Garrison Savannah

Tribute to Alfred Pragnell


Barbados' well known broadcaster,


storyteller and actor was a friend


of Guyana


horse racing track. A few
houses away was the resi-
dence of another outstanding
Barbadian man of letters,
Frank Collymore. Alfred was
always in Frank's house and
was undoubtedly influenced
by him and his wife Ellice.

















ALFRED Pragne
Frank was a teacher at the
island's Combermere second-
ary School, which Alfred at-
tended.
I last spoke with Alfred on
the phone early this year when
he kindly assisted in getting a
banner advertising the Guyana
trade exhibition strung between
two palm trees on the property
of his church. The church build-
ing was at the top of the Hilton
Drive gap, passed by many mo-
torists, leading to the hotel
venue of the exhibition.
"No problem Norman, we
are all part of the same region."
he said.
While visiting Anna Regina
on Guyana's Essequibo coast a
couple years ago, I went into the
market and visited Akbar's
Bookstore and Lending Library.
As I entered and spoke with the
proprietor, Asif Akbar, he said:
"God is merciful, it is Alfred
Pragnell!". Akbar recognized my
IBajan' accent as similar to
Pragnell's whom he, incredu-
lously, listened to faithfully on
his President transistor radio.
Akbar (formerly Everton
Gittens) had a Barbadian mother
and he often listened to VOB
broadcasts. I couldn't believe


how his old 1960s vintage (it
was taped up with masking
tape) transistor could receive
the signals so far away. I could
never get any on my own, more
"sophisticated", radio I brought
down on my visits. But, with
typical Guyanese resourceful-
ness, he still
hears Barbados,
even though ev-
ery now and
again he has to
put the radio
close to his ear.
When I re-
turned to Barba-
dos, I mentioned
to Alfred what a
fan he had in
Guyana. "You
give me his ad-
dress and I will
send him one of
my CDs free,"
said Alfred. Later,
Asif told me he
ll didreceiveitalong
with a most kind
and appreciative letter.
Alfred wasn't one to make
any big noise in his social criti-
cism. He knew there were prob-
lems in Barbadian society, as
with others, but preferred to do
it in a subdued way. As Layne
-Clarke noted in her remarks:
"Because of his conservative
nature, he was never one. to
rattle bureaucratic cages nor to
ruffle political feathers. And it
was that characteristic that of-
ten deterred him from express-
ing publicly any views likely to
upset the Establishment."
Among those attending
the Service of Thanksgiv-
ing for Pragnell at the
Coral Ridge Memorial
Gardens among the sugar
canes fields in the Christ
Church countryside he
loved, was Barbados' Min-
ister of Culture Hon. Mia
Mottley. She had earlier
praised him on behalf of
the Barbadian government
for his immense contribu-
tion to cultural life in the
island and as an unofficial
ambassador overseas.

Woman soldier takes on Mt.


Ayanganna and conquers


By Linda Rutherford

IT'S not likely she'd do it a
second time, but should the
occasion ever arise, she most
certainly will says Woman
Second LLt. Samantha Chung,
who created a bit of history
on Independence eve when
she became the first female
to crest Mount Ayanganna.
Speaking to the media ear-
lier this month about her epic
feat and what drove her into do-
ing it, Chung, who was part of
a 12-man Guyana Defence
Force (GDF) team to make the
customary climb this year, as
part of our annual Independence
celebrations, to plant,the na-
tional standard, the Golden Ar-
rowhead, atop the 6700-foot
massif, said:
"From the moment I be-
came an officer... even while I
was training, you'll talk about
things you can do in the Army.
And Ayanganna was one of the


things a woman, or female of- while I was training, the.idea to
ficer, had never done. It's also challenge what existed....started
one of those patrols that you to energe."
don't want to send a woman on, Having second thoughts
when the moment fi-
Si d nally did arrive and
she realized the enor-
mity of the task ahead
of her never entered
the equation, she said.
"Then it wasn't
the time to second-
guess myself. I was
trying to go on this
patrol even before I
got commissioned. So,
I had time to think
about it; about all the
things that could pos-
sibly go wropg. And I
had put systems in
place, in terms of
Woman Second Lt. Samantha Chung. training and condition-
ing the mind....and
because it's difficult. And there come to a sort of acceptance. So
is the traditional view on the there wasn't time to second-
post a woman should hold in the guess myself; I just had to do it
Army. So, very early, even and that was my focus."


The actual climb itself
wasn't too difficult because, as
she had said earlier, she had
been bracing herself to deal with
it now going on two years. But
as often happens, no amount of
planning could prepare you for
what the situation would be like
on the ground when the time
does arrive.
S".... when we started out
first, I got winded, very winded;
quite early, because I was not
used to the altitude. Secondly, I
got cramps within the first
hour...one leg and then the
other, because the muscle is not
used to that sort of movement."
Some of the men, also, she
rather suspected, were faring no
better than she.


"There were other people
who were pulling up like I was,
and I guess they were just as
winded as I was because no-
body was, talking. But then
again, they're much stronger;
their legs are much stronger than
mine, of course, so they can go
much faster. But I won't neces-
sarily say that I was under tre-
mendous pressure."
It took them the better part
of two days to make the climb,
she said. They did it in bounds,
"like you'll walk for like one
hour and something or two
hours depending on how you
feel. And then you keep going."
According to a release
from base command, Camp
Ayanganna, which took its
name from the very moun-
tain they were about to as-
cend, the team arrived at the
foot of the mountain where
they would start the climb, on
Saturday, May 22. They were
inserted there by helicopter,


V .
it said. The actual climb com-
menced the following day,
Sunday, May 23.
Weather conditions that
first day were excellent, Chung
recalled."
We didn't have much rain,
but you got wet because the
trees were wet... and you walk
through water." Were it not for
the lush vegetation underfoot,
she said, they might never have
made it to the top, as they pro-
vided much-needed leverage in
rather tricky situations, such as
particularly steep areas of the
mountain.
Asked whether at any point
she ever felt like giving up and
turning around, she replied in
the negative.
"To give up at no time
entered my mind," the
plucky woman soldier said.
"I didn't think of it. Giving
up wasn't an option, Be

Air~ clae nPeidn'


GUYANESE PRESIDENT
Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday
expressed "deep regret" over
negative comments he made
a week ago in the United
States about the levels of
HIVIAIDS and crime in
Jamaica.
He reportedly told a group
of Guyanese nationals that
while his country truthfully
publicised its crime and HIV/
AIDS statistics, Jamaica and
other regional countries
concealed their.figures in order'
to protect their economic
interests.
"... If anything that I said is
construed as being offensive to
the Jamaican people, it is
deeply regretted," the Guyanese
President said in a statement
issued yesterday.
The statement from
Georgetown came at the same
time that the Jamaican


Government was downplaying
the incident. According to
Information Minister, Senator
Burchell Whiteman, "The
transcript from the tape... says
absolutely nothing which
indicates that the President
meant to convey the impression
that Jamaica was deliberately
hiding information about HIV/
AIDS to protect its tourism
industry."
Earlier this week Mr.
Jagdeo's press aide, Robert
Persaud, denied that the
Guyanese leader had attacked
his regional counterparts,
claiming that the President was
chiding the media in his country
for playing up negatives in their
reportage. In contrast, this was
deliberately not done by
Jamaica's two daily
newspapers, Mr. Jagdeo
asserted.
Media reports out of


Atlanta, Georgia, where
President Jagdeo was
addressing a forum, said the
President charged that Jamaica's
crime rate was perhaps 10 times
higher than in his country; while
there were 70 times more
kidnapping in Trinidad and
Tobago than Guyana.
On Wednesday, Health
Minister John Junor refuted
Mr. Jagdeo's claim that
Jamaica falsifies its HIVI/
AIDS statistics. The Health
Minister restated the
country's high prevalence
rate of 1.5 to two per cent (per
22,000 of the adult
population) and noted the
collaboration between
Government and UNAIDS in
fighting the epidemic.
As the controversy ignited
by his remarks raged in Jamaica,
the Guyanese President issued
a statement late Thursday night:

"It is with deep regret that

"Nothing that I said was

Media comment
by Mr. Robert
Persaud,
Information
Liaison to the
President
"I HAVE seen a news story
on aspects of the President of
Guyana, His Excellency Bharrat
Jagdeo's meeting with members
of the Guyanese community
based in Metro Atlanta,
Georgia, at the Ritz Carlton
Hotel on June 14, 2004.
I wish to state that at no
time did the President question


the integrity of the reporting
system of HIV/AIDS cases of
any country. Any suggestion
that the President cast doubt
over the HIV/AIDS reporting
system of any CARICOM
member state does serious
injury to the tenor of the
Guyanese Leader's statement.
On the coverage of crime
by the media in Guyana,
Trinidad and Tobago and
Jamaica, President Jagdeo
lauded the responsible
coverage of crime issues by
the Trinidad and Tobago and
Jamaica media.
The President, in
comparing the quality of
coverage of crime by Guyana,
Trinidad and Tobago and
Jamaica, felt that his country's
media had shortcomings.
The President's remarks
should not be misconstrued as
a criticism of the Trinidad and
Tobago and Jamaican media. The
President was in fact urging the
media in Guyana to take a leaf
out of the book of Jamaica and
Trinidad and Tobago's media
coverage of crime issues.
The President of Guyana at
no time offended nor was it ever
his intention to criticise fellow
members of the CARICOM
family.
It is disturbing that the
news report in question did
not accurately capture the
President's statement."

cause before I left, this
was something that I had
thought about; I knew
what I was doing; I had set
myself little aims and ob-
jectives; these are the
things I am going to abide
by to get me up there. Like
I am not going to complain;
I am alwaysgoing to carry
my own weight; I am not
going to be a burden to
anyone; and that as long as
my, legs are under me, I
can keep going."
She recalls, however,
chancing upon a secretive
smile on the face of one of
the ranks at a particularly
tricky moment during the
climb; a look she couldn't
quite put her finger on at
the time.
It was not until she reached
the top and saw the collective
look of admiration on their faces
that she realized that the rest of
the team had been secretly wa-
gering among themselves as to
whether she would indeed make
it. They even applauded her,
she said.
"The only person, other
than me, who was convinced
that I would make it to the top,"
she said, "was the person who
carried the patrol, Second Lt.
Bennons. I trained with him, so
he, more than anyone else,
knew how I would manage un-
der pressure."
Strange enough, her initial
reaction at finally attaining her
goal was not one of triumph but
curiosity.
"It was no big thing," she
said. "I didn't realise what I had
done until I was coming down.
But when I was up there it was
no big thing. I was like.. .this is
the top....this is the flagpole."
She was more concerned,
she said, with how the pioneer-'
ing team was able to lug all that
stuff up the mountainside,
which is treacherous in places,
to erect the flagpole.
"Because, if you see it, it's
as if somebody paved in con-
crete the actual spot where the
plaques are. You don't even
want to have to carry ten
pounds up that mountain," she
said.
Having to overnight at the
top was another experience in
itself. Contrary to popular
opinion, that the view from the
top of a mountain can take one's
breath away, Chung, who says
she. is at that stage in her life
wHere age is irrelevant, said:
"There is no view; when
it's dark, it's dark. And even dur-
ing the day, visibility can some-
times be very poor. You're ac-
tually in clouds; you look
around and the clouds are just
over there. It's also wet all the
time..... and cold, even during
the day."
As for what other goal or
challenges she has set herself,
whether within or outside of
the Army, Chung, who is a
member of the Second Infan-
try Battalion Reserve, said
that's a bit too early to pre-
dict at this juncture.
"There are a number of
things I would certainly love to
do," she said. "But even if I
can't, I would certainly love to
see other women venture out


into new areas like I think. I may
be wrong.... .like there was much
debate before I left for that
trip....but I think women can
serve and do just about any-
thing as their male counterparts
in the Army. If you look at other
Armies in the world, women are
doing just about anything: I
think we still have a very old-
fashioned view of the role of
women in the Guyana Defence
Force and I certainly hope that
over time, that will change. And
that can only change if women
not only challenge it, but suc-
cessfully prove that they are
capable."
And taking on Ayanganna
gain?
"No! I would certainly


O..


want to do something differ-
ent, but I know I can do it if I
have to. The thing is, I can do
it if I have to; and so can any-
one."

that by mid-week they would


have been laying steel and this
week, beams will be laid across

He said works are progress-

why the year-end deadline
should not be met.
There are 21 workers from

the project, he said, and as the


works progress more are hired.

The Arts Journal fills void


. i.7 ~ LLUJLxu~
* .


By Ruel Johnson

THOSE few who are an fait
with the state of literature and
literary criticism in Guyana
would be well aware that for
some time now most notably
with the decline if not demise
of Kyk-over-al there has
been a considerable lacunae
in the area of literary and
artistic journalism.
While there has been in the
newspapers the occasional book
or film review, or a general report
on an art exhibition or two,
newspaper deadlines do not


allow for the sort of in-depth
probing, analysis and exhibition
that the work of our more
serious artists and writers
demands.
Literary and artistic
criticism serves an invaluable
role in any society. Critics are
often the filter or prism
through which the imaginative
works of our artistes are
'deciphered' for the general
public; criticism, good
criticism, also helps these
'creators' to see where they
might have stumbled and
push them towards the


production of better work.
And since, ultimately, any
work of art is concerned with the
people within any particular
society, criticism serves the
function of broadening and
strengthening the bridges, which
artists attempt to build between
peopless.
That function, inLerestlingl,
enough, seems the mission
statement of a new arts entitled
The Arts Journal edited by
Ameena Gafoor whose aim "is
to work towards deepening the
understanding of ourselves as
products or inheritors of rich and


diverse civilisations who share a
complex history of struggle for
selfhood and, above all, who share
a common humanity."
More broadly the Journal
seeks to explore the
contemporary literature and
art of Guyana and the
Caribbean a mammoth task
considering the fragmented
state of that nebulous union,
in both the geographical and
the psychic sense.
Which may be the reason
that the first issue restricts itself
thematically to the contribution
of Indians or to use a phrase


currently en vogue "people of
* Indian origin."
The Arts Journal is divided
into three sections, Literature,
History and Art each focusing
on the contributions Indian
people have made to both the
artistic and social life of the
Caribbean.
In what must have been
an incredible coup or just
reward for Ms. Gafoor's
strenuous efforts, the first
article is a paper by
Professor Kenneth
Ramchand of Trinidad,
arguably the most prominent
living critic of Caribbean
fiction. The paper, entitled
'Literature and the Person of
Indian Origin' explores the
role of literature in the lives

in the strong, elegant if at
times plodding academic

Far more adventurous is
(and this is not in any way
prejudicial) Guyanese Clem
Seecharan's very personal
assessment of VS. Naipaul's
life and work within the
context of their mutual Indo-
Caribbean background.
Seecharan, another notable
Caribbean academic, is bold
in his assessment of Naipaul
establishing, claiming a
personal linkage of (ethnic


BC
not biological) ancestry that
one imagines that the great
writer, haughty and elitist as
ever, might reject or simply
ignore. Seecharan's
treatment of Naipaul seems
more psychoanalysis than
literary criticism and though
he stopped short of labeling
the Nobel Prize winner as
"anal retentive" or some such
- Freudian tag, his assessment
of Naipaul's psychological
quirks seems almost
authoritative:
"I knew many years ago that
the great mind was missing a lot;
the basis of comprehension was
flawed. The empathy, crafted by
my childhood, does not belong
in that great mind. His

House], was puny. The talent
alone could not fill the void; the

the original darkness..."
Many of the other articles in
the Journal, well written as they
were, pale in comparison to this
sort of critical analysis and this
sort of disparity may be the
publications only weak point, if'
it may be called that.
In the History section, the
article that stands out, though
not as strongly as Seecharan's,/is
written by Professor Brinsley
Samaroo, Head of the
Department of History at UWI,
St. Augustine. To put a bit of
perspective on Samaroo's piece,
it may be noted that in recent
times, there has been a
conscious drive within Indo-
Caribbean scholarship to re-
explore the system of
indentureship with a view to


highlighting the brutalities and
injustices of it, and a common
technique is to allude to the
system of slavery. In light of
this, Samaroo's excellent article,
'The 1862 'Mutiny' Aboard the
Guyana-bound Clasmerden' may
well be entitled 'Amistad,
Interrupted!'
Samaroo sets an incident
of unrest among indentured
labourers on board a ship
headed for Guyana in 1862
agnst the background of the
Indian Revolt of 1857. Much
of Samaroo's historical
evidence may be considered
circumstantial, indeed much
of it undoubtedly is, but so is
much of paleontology. To be
brief, Samaroo's piece makes
for compelling reading,
especially for those
interested in examples of
Indian resistance to the


hardships of indentureship.
Until someone decides to
use Samaroo's research to
write a novel or a script for
a feature film, his article,
available only in the Journal
is a must-read.
The Art section of the
Journal is based on an
exhibition entitled Under the
Seventh Sun, organised by the
ARTS FORUM in
collaboration with the
University of Guyana and
held at the Tain Campus
during the May 20-25
International Conference of
the Indian Diaspora, also held
at Tain. The Curatorial
Statement by one of
Guyana's foremost artists,
Bernadette Persaud, is
published here as well as an
overview of the exhibition by
Ameena Gafoor and
statements from the artists
featured at the exhibition. A
definite plus is the colour
reproductions of the artwork,
which are though not of say
Caribbean Beat quality -
excellent in themselves and in
light of the very limited
funding that was available for
the Journal's production.
In conclusion, the overall
effort by Ameena Gafoor and
the historians, artists and
writers she pulled together to
help her is ultimately a
commendable one. The Arts
Journal, unambitiously named
has nevertheless been
ambitiously put together and is
going to go a long way in filling
the hole left by the cessation of
Kyk as well as carving out a
new and particular niche for
itself.
The, only thing is that
we're going to have to wait
another year for the next issue.
Until then, The Arts
Journal: Volume 1, Issue 1 is
in bookstores now.


By Tara Singh

WITH the blessings of the
Guruji, Shri Prakash Gossai,
as well as, with those of Pt.
Chunelall Narine of the
Trimurti Bhavan, and Imaam
Haiji Zakir of the Jama
Masjid, President Jagdeo's
visit to New York in mid-June
turned out to be a hur moral
and political booster.
Even the bitterest critics of
the President were forced to
recognize the depth of his
knowledge and political passion
that he exudes as Guyana's
Leader. Everywhere the
President visited, whether in the
Afro-Guyanese- or the Indo-
Guyanese community, he was
greeted with unparalleled
warmth and enthusiasm, which
would have been the envy of
previous Guyanese leaders.
Mr. Jagdeo rejected the
intimidating presence of the US
Secret Service, and embraced
instead, his people unimpeded
with an unmatchable fervor.
Neither the Gajraj affair nor the
intransigence of the PNC/R
could have detracted from
Jagdeo's June glory.
After weeks of planning, the
President's goodwill tour to
overseas Guyanese communities
in New York and elsewhere had
ended with greater understanding
and commitment on the part of
overseas Guyanese towards the
PPP/C administration's
relentless struggle for peace,
equality, and progress. But the


moments the President shared
with overseas Guyanese and
others will never be over.
"It's no exaggeration to say
that President Jagdeo has assured
for himself a place in history,"
observed Krishna.
The consensus of opinion
is that never before in the
history of our community, had
Guyanese experienced the
generation of such
electrifying moments in just
a few days. Young and old,
Afro and Indo as well as Other
Guyanese ethnics, infirm and
healthy, women and men, the
educated and the no-so-
educated, labourer and
executive, skeptics and
conformists, priests and laity,
all were overwhelmed by the
occasion, and could not,
therefore, restrain their
unbridled emotions, even
within the solemn ambience
of a Church, a Mandir or a
Masjid.
While June 12th turned out
to be a memorable day for
President Jagdeo and worshipers
of the Seventh Day Adventist
Church in Brooklyn, June 13th
had a similar effect on the
President, as well as members
and supporters of the popular
Jama Masjid in Queens, New
York. No one, not even the wily
political pundit, could have
forecast the staggering impact of
the President's visit on the
overseas Guyanese communities.
* What can I say; in life great
things sometimes just happen.


At the Jama Masjid,
President Jagdeo and his team
(of Community Leaders Kawall
Totaram, Dr. Rajendra Singh,
Bhola Ramsundar, and Consul
General Bretnol Evans) were
greeted by Imaam Haiji Zakir,
his executive, and a beautiful
array of children adorned in
colourful cultural outfits. There
were over 600 people, who
listened attentively to the
President's call for greater
tolerance, and the need for
Guyanese not to turn away from
their country.
Despite some nagging
problems, the President noted
the huge progress that Guyana
has made under the PPP/C
administration. He warned
people not to be misled by false
and malicious information.
"Read the news, but verify its
accuracy."
The President also
mentioned that since 9/11 there
had been unfair attacks on the
Muslim community. Why
Muslims are being singled out
for attacks? There are Christian
terrorists; there are Hindu
terrorists; and there are Muslim
terrorists. Islam does not preach
hatred nor violence; that's the
message of only a few Islamic
extremists. He challenged
Muslims to defend their religion
from those vitriolic assaults.
It was a-great pleasure to
see that not only children, but
also, adults lining up to

Cookery Corner

Welcome to the 299th edition of
w.V "Champion Cookery Corner", a
weekly feature giving recipes and
tips on cooking in Guyana.

Coo a*e* ho a *re


Chocolate Liquor: The finely ground
meat of the cacao bean. When warm, it's a
liquid; when cold, a solid.
Cocoa Butter: The naturally occurring fat
in cacao beans. It's why chocolate melts in
your mouth.
Cocoa Powder: The fine powder made
from the cocoa bean meat once most of the
cocoa butter has been removed.
Couverture: A high-quality chocolate
used by professionals that is specially
formulated for dipping and coating.
Milk Chocolate: Made from chocolate
liquor, cocoa butter, sugar, vanilla and milk
powder. Quality milk chocolate has a
minimum of30 percent cocoa.


Semisweet or Bittersweet Chocolate:
Made from chocolate liquor, cocoa butter,
sugar and vanilla. A premium brand of
bittersweet will have a minimum of 62
percent cocoa, while semisweet will have
less.
Unsweetened Chocolate: Solid
chocolate liquor, with no added sugar, that
is usually used in cooking.
White Chocolate: White chocolate
contains no cocoa liquor, so it isn't really
chocolate. A quality brand contains sugar,
cocoa butter, milk powder and vanilla.


8 oz /225 g dark semisweet chocolate
5 oz/ 140 g butter
7'/z oz /1 cup / 210 g sugar
4 eggs
4 heaped tablespoons or 60 g flour
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons Champion Baking Powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons / 1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 180 deg C / 350 deg F / Gas
mark 4. Line a 9 inch / 23 cm cake tin with
greaseproof or other non-stick paper and grease
the tin. Break the chocolate into small pieces
and melt it with butter over hot water. Beat the
eggs with sugar, mix with flour, cocoa powder,
baking powder and vanilla extract.


Slowly fold in the melted butter and chocolate and
the sour cream. Bake at 350 degrees for 50
minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in centre
comes out clean. Cool the cake. Remove the
.crusted surface on the top of the cake, and cut in
half, horizontally.
Frosting:
Heat 2/3 cups (1.6 dl) of heavy cream or whipping
cream in a sauce pan. Remove from heat, add 9 oz
(260 g) of finely chopped dark semisweet
chocolate, and stir until smooth. To test it, transfer
a tbs of the frosting into a chilled cup and place in
the fridge for 15 minutes. If it is too thin, add some
more melted chocolate. It it is toe thick, add a few
tablespoons of cream, stir until smooth, and test it
again. This cake should be at room temperature
when served to have soft frosting.

garland the President at the
Jama Masjid, and to take
individual and family
pictures. The President
stayed at the Masjid for over
two hours to accommodate a
litany of requests. Scenes of
jubilation elsewhere were
also replicated at the Jama
Masjid. People just couldn't
get enough of the President.
The Spiritual Leader,
Imaam Haiji Zakir, had
organised the President's visit
as part of a bigger programme
to celebrate the Masjid's first
anniversary at 94-17 102 Street,
Ozone Park, 11416. I had the
honour to introduce Imaam
Zakir. wbo is a s;'talart in
pronmoing unity within our
community
"I know of no one else ~ ho
has been able to build bndges
betv.een Hindus and Muslims
than Imaam Haiti Zakir" Pi
Ramesh of the Sudama Mandir
also praised Hai.li ZakAr for his
efforts in stimulating
community cohesion Mr.
Brenmol EBans. Guyana Consul
General. also spoke brietl1
about the overwhelming
response to the President's tsiit
in Brooklyn and in Queens


The outspoken Imaam Haiji
Zakir, understanding the mood
and sensitivity of his people,
promised that he will, in the
future, verify the news before
reading it on his popular weekly
radio programme. That remark
provoked some laughter, in an
otherwise serene atmosphere,
where everyone was still
marveling at the President's
visit to their Masjid.
The President moved freely,
and had dinner at the Masjid.
Imaam Zakir believes that his
programme was the best for the
day. It's difficult to compare
events, as the experiences and
outcomes may be different. One
thing is certain, though, all the


organizations that played host
to the President had become big
winners.
Community leaders have
taken one step forward. They
recognize that love,
compassion, and flowery
rhetoric alone cannot change
this world. It's necessary to
complement these with
purposeful human action.
Thus, they have pledged to'
fully support the country and
the President in the'
enduring struggle to make
Guyana a better place for all
Guyanese. They also share
an abiding concern with the
President in the dire need for
tolerance.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE, June 27, 2004


The Environment:


Where's the risk, and


where are children safe?


Budapest/Geneva AROUND
the world, polluted air and
water and other environ-
ment-related hazards kill
more than three million chil-
dren under the age of five ev-
ery year.
While industrialisation, ur-
ban population growth, climate
change, the increasing use of
chemicals and environmental
degradation expose children to
risks that were unimagined a few
generations ago, it is the old and
largely understood basic threats
that are still today responsible
for killing most children: factors
such as unsafe water, lack of
sanitation, malaria and indoor air
pollution.
Just 10 per cent of the
world's population is under
five years of age, yet 40 per
cent of the environment-re-
lated disease burden falls on
children in this age group.


This is partly because they
have a higher intake of harm-
ful substances in relation to
body weight, and partly be-
cause they have less strength
and knowledge to protect.
themselves.
'To illustrate the impact of
the environment on children's
health, the World- Health
Organisation (WHO) is launch-
ing the first-ever Atlas of
Children's Environmental Health
and the Environment. Presented
at the Fourth European Confer-
ence of Health and Environment
Ministers in Budapest, Hun-
gary, this book brings together
a range, of facts about the effects
of environmental risks to our
children's health, which, when
taken together, paints a graphic
picture of the hazards we all
face and the reasons for over
three million annual deaths in
children under age five world-


wide.
"Children are the main suf-
ferers of environmental hazards.
It is unacceptable from every
point of view that the most vul-
nerable members of a society
should be the ones who pay the
price for failures to protect
health from environmental dan-
gers," said Dr. Lee Jong-wook,
WHO Director-General, on the
occasion of the launch.
The United Nations Millen-
nium Declaration calls on gov-
ernments to reduce by two-
thirds the under-five mortality
rate by 2015. This may be one
of the most ambitious goals.
"This is a wake-up call
for us and for the world. The
number of child deaths is
alarming. It paints a dismal
picture of neglect. We must
face up to reality and act now
to work towards a sustainable
and brighter future," said Dr

Kerstin Leitner, WHO Assis-
tant Director-General for
Sustainable Development
and Healthy Environments.
Extensively illustrated, the
Atlas clearly demonstrates the
threats children face every-
where. It underscores the im-
pact of poverty on children's
health and the efforts needed to
tackle environmental problems.
It also discusses the relation-
ship, inter-linkages, and impact
of the environment on the health
of our children. While this cri-
sis cannot be ignored and de-
mands'urgent action, success
stories show a way forward for
the world to make sure that our
children will inherit a safer
planet and a brighter future.
Health and the environment
- some Atlas facts:
Unclean water causes di-
arrhea, which kills an estimated
1.8 million people worldwide
each year, 1.6 million of whom
are children under five. It's also
responsible for many diseases
including cholera, dysentery,
guinea worm, typhoid and intes-
tinal worms.
86 per cent of all urban
wastewater in Latin America and


the Caribbean, and 65 per cent
of all wastewater in Asia, is dis-
charged untreated into rivers,
lakes and oceans.
The Ganges River alone
has 1.1 million litres of raw
sewage dumped into it every
minute, a startling figure consid-
ering that one gram of faeces in
untreated water may contain 10
million viruses, one million bac-
teria, 1000 parasite cysts and a
hundred worm eggs. Diseases,
which result, include diarrhoea,
cholera, dysentery, typhoid,

the tune of $349M, while
the residential drainage sys-
tems in Anna Catherina,
West Coast Demerara and
Phoenix and Success in
Leguan will be rehabilitated
at a cost of $21.1M.
The sum of $54M has been
allocated for refurbishing and ex-
tending the Zeelugt Primary
School and $7.8M will be spent
to complete construction of the
Lanaballi Primary School.
Four multi-purpose centres
are to be built at a total cost of
$71.3M, and one each would be
located at Belle Vue, Farm,
Grove and Tuschen, the admin-
istration said.
These projects are to be ex-
ecuted by the Social Ameliora-
tion Impact Programme
(SIMAP).


guinea worm, intestinal worms
and trachoma.
Nearly one million chil-
dren die each year from dis-
eases caused by air pollution
inside their own homes.
Over 75 per cent of house-
holds in most Asian and Afri-
can countries cook with solid
fuels, such as wood, dung,
coal or crop waste, which pro-
duce a black smoke that,
when inhaled, may give rise
to, or worsen pneumonia and
other respiratory infections.


Meanwhile the Basic Needs
Trust Fund would also execute
several projects approved by
the Caribbean Development
Bank (CDB). These projects in-
clude installation of water sup-
ply systems at Canal No. 2, De
Kinderen, Vergenoegen, Wine
Bush, Belle Vue and La Grange:
The CDB has also approved
the construction of roads at
Leonora Pasture and a health cen-
tre at Lower Bonasika.
Three other projects are un-
der consideration by the CDB,
including a Greenwich Park/
Farm water supply system, con-
struction of the Shirley Field-
Ridley Nursery and the Green-
wich Park Primary Schools.
The regional administra-
tion said that in the mean-
time it would repair the two
schools during the August va-
cation.

By Timothy Collings


LISBON, Portugal (Reuters)
- Rudi Voeller knew his time
was up as Germany coach
when he bravely led his
beaten team towards their
fans at Euro 2004.
It was a generous gesture,
rewarded by supporters who
had enjoyed two weeks of
sunshine, beer and beachside
fun with a crescendo of jeers
and whistles.
Though thousands of fans
clapped their players as they
joined Voeller in the glare of the
floodlights, the damage was
done.
Voeller, at.44 the youngest
coach at Euro 2004, knew he
had taken the team as far as he
could. He decided it was not
worth putting up with what
would inevitably follow in the
two years leading up to the
2006 World Cup on home soil.
Only success gains the


affection of fans and support of
directors in modern
international soccer, and the
coaches pay the highest price of
all.
Although Voeller said after


the 2-1 defeat by the Czech
Republic he had no intention of
resigning, he clearly harboured
other intentions. The following
morning he announced his
decision to quit.

RUDI VOELLER


By the end of the week,
Spain coach Inaki Saez and
Italy's Giovanni Trapattoni had
also bowed to the pressure put
on those men without luck,
success or both.
Saez led Spain to one win,
one draw and one defeat at
Euro 2004, leading to elimination
after the group stage.
He had been in charge for
barely two years, losing only
two of 23 games.
Trapattoni guided Italy -to
an unbeaten run through the
group stage but a record of only
one hard-won victory and two
draws. was not enough to
prevent an early exit.

FRUSTRATING RUN
Former Juventus coach
Marcello Lippi has been offered
a contract to coach the side until
2006, an appointment Italy


hope will end a frustrating run.
There is, of course, no
guarantee that will happen.
Success in major
tournaments is an elusive
commodity intertwined with
good fortune and it requires a
mixture of thick-skinned single-
mindedness, the cunning of a
fox and a barrow-load of charm.
That is why Portugal coach
Luiz Felipe Scolari seems to
have survived and prospered
after leading his native Brazil to
success at the 2002 World Cup
finals. His decision during the
epic quarterfinal against England
to withdraw captain Luis Figo
was the boldest taken by a
coach during the tournament.
It paid off. Portugal, trailing
to an early goal, secured a 2-2
draw and claimed a place in the
semifinals with a dramatic
penalty shoot-out triumph.
In short, Scolari gambled
and won.
* But his England counterpart
Sven-Goran Eriksson, who
chose caution over adventure by
withdrawing the creative Paul
Scholes and sending on
defensive midfielder Phil Neville
early in the second half, flew
home to face an inquiry into his
tactics.
Eriksson defended his
decision, citing fatigue and
cramp, but, like his failure to
take a grip of the strategy during
England's defeat by 10-man
Brazil at the last World Cup, it
was an excuse for his failure to
be bolder.

SEVERE CRITICISM
Yet even Scolari has had to
face severe criticism, .in

France, once the gleaming
example of long-term thinking
and continuity, have now fallen
into the same trap as the rest by
failing to secure coach Jacques
Santini's future before the
tournament.
Instead of waiting to see if'
he could remain with Les Bleus,
Santini accepted a chance to
take over at English premier
league club Tottenham Hotspur,
a choice that must have
undermined the French squad on
the eve of their title defence.
Santini's difficulties were
mirrored in the Dutch squad and
their coach Dick Advocaat,
whose dislike of a two-pronged
strike force and conventional 4-
4-2 formation has created the
usual discord within the Dutch
camp.

Sangakkara scored an
unbeaten double century
yesterday to put Sri Lanka
on course to win their
opening match in Australia
against the Northern

Chasing 187 to win, they

day of the four-day match in
Darwin.
Sangakkara, playing as an
opener, made 203 not out,
striking 21 boundaries and a six

That allowed the touring
side to declare their first
innings at 378 for seven, 41

through as Northern

nine.
Captain Justin Langer had
reshuffled his line-up for the
second innings but the plan
backfired. Left-arm spinner

BRUSSELS, (Reuters) -
NATO has agreed to deploy
surveillance planes,
maritime patrols and a force
to deal with potential
chemical and biological
attacks for the August 13-29
Olympic Games in Athens,
the alliance's chief said
yesterday.
Secretary-General Jaap de
Hoop Scheffer said the 26-
nation alliance agreed on
Wednesday on the package of
security measures, which -. :'
include intelligence-sharirn. fj.
the main Games and th-
September 17-28 Paralympics
in the Greek capital.


"We will assist the Greeks
in civil emergency planning," de
Hoop Scheffer told Reuters in
an interview. "We will assist the
Greek government with a
battalion which is specifically
trained in anti-biological,
chemical warfare."
A NATO official said that
roughly 100 personnel from
the alliance's recently
established battalion for
defence against weapons of
mass destruction, which is
heavily made up of forces
from the Czech Republic,
would be stationed on the
ground.
"There will likely be


elements of the battalion in
theatre for quick response," the
official said.
In March the Greek
government reassured parliament,
where there is traditional sensitivity
to international interference in
domestic issues, that armed NATO
forces would not be deployed on
Greek soil during the Games.
But de Hoop Scheffer
said the chemical and
biological alert troops had .to
be in-country: "It will be
sitting there because whenever
there is an emergency you can't
wait for a train or an aircraft
taking hours to get the people
in," he said.

D'Oliveira exposed apartheid disgrace


By Martin Gough
It is enough of a challenge to
score a century in Test
cricket, but to single-
handedly take on the might
of world politics is too much
for any single individual
History looks on Basil
D'Oliveira as having played.
a major role in bringing down
South Africa's apartheid
regime.
Had the circumstances been
different he would just have
been one of the finest cricketers
of his generation outstanding
but not unique.
Even 36 years later, he is
famous not for his five Test
tons but for the affair that saw
South Africa's racist policies
exposed for the world to see.
And what had been a cosy
conspiracy between sporting
bodies, turning a blind eye to
injustice both on .and off the
field, was also brought into the
spotlight.


D'Oliveira's personal story
is remarkable in itself.
Denied the chance to play
for South Africa, he took the
long route of moving to
England and qualifying to
play for his adopted country.
However, his dream of
returning home and playing at
the highest level was blocked by
the South African government,
leading to the ban on sporting
ties that stood until 1991.
But equally incredible, as a
new BBC Four programme
illustrates, is the way it
uncovered the murky
machinations of the
establishment in attempting to
maintain the status quo.
It is a story that resonates
particularly at present, as the
cricket world wrings its hands
over the situation in Zimbabwe.
At some point, those who
claim sport and politics should
not mix are presented with
irrefutable evidence to the
contrary.


Williams sisters no


longer invincible


Navratilova


LONDON, England (Reuters)
- The Williams sisters,
Serena and Venus, may have
lost their aura of invincibil-
ity in women's tennis for
good, according to nine-times
former Wimbledon champion
Martina Navratilova. .
Venus, Wimbledon cham-
pion in 2000 and 2001 and run-
ner-up to Serena in 2002 and
2003, was beaten by Croatian
Karolina Sprem in the second
round at this year's Wimbledon.
and lost in the French Open
quarterfinals with Serena earlier
this month.
Venus has not won a grand
slam since her 2001 U.S. Open
win and Navratilova said: "It
seems the Williams sisters have
lost the aura of invincibility
they once had.
"Neither of them has it
right now, but I think Venus in
particular hasn't had it for a
while.
"She's lost confidence in
herself and the rest of the play-
ers realise when that happens
that they have a chance."
Writing in The Guardian
newspaper yesterday, 47-year-
old Navratilova added: "Win-
ning and losing is a habit. The
winning habit that Venus had is
gone and with it, naturally, the
aura of invincibility.
"I think that disappeared
when she began to lose regu-
larly to Serena, as she did in
the last two Wimble ion fi-
nals and as she has in three
other grand slam finals in
the last two years."
"That's what got to her
first because she knew that she
had everyone else covered but
she could never beat her sister.
"I don't know how intro-
spective Venus is or how much
she thinks about things but I
would say that devastated her
more than she let on and per-
haps more than even she
knows.
"The Williams sisters used
to be able to back it up and now
they can't and no matter how
much swagger you've got, if you


don't back it up with your
game, then it's all just a bunch
of smoke and people don't fall
for that for very long," she said.
Navratilova matched
Venus's performance at
Wimbledon this year by reach-
.ing the second round of the
[ ----- --


VENUS WILLIAMS
singles. She believes the two
sisters need to forget their dress
-designing and other outside dis-
tractions if they want to re-es-
tablish their dominance.
OUTSIDE HOBBIES
"The good news for Venus
'is that the downward spiral may
not be permanent, though you
can only retrieve the aura of in-
vincibility by winning,"
Navratilova said.
"Tennis has to be the only
thing in your life. You can have
a hobby that you do last thing
at night if you like but you can't
be -scheduling your tennis
around your hobbies.
"You can have outside inter-
ests but teniis has to be firmly
number one. It has to be the
most important thing and I don't
get the feeling that it was for ei-
ther Venus or Serena.
"It's almost as though the
winning came so easily that
they almost got distracted and
sooner or later that is going
to catch up with you. I think
it's already caught up with
Venus and it may have
caught up with Serena as
well. I hope i.ot."


BASIL D'Oliveira was forced to move to England to play
Test cricket.


South Africa had been
picking only white players since
their introduction to Test cricket
in 1889 and refused to play any
country other than England,
Australia and New Zealand.
Bree Bulbulia, the
chairman of selectors for the


South Africa "non-white"
team in 1958, tells the
programme: "During that
period eight' or nine non-
white players would have
made the South Africa side
on merit."
It took D'Oliveira, who


was reckoned to have scored
more than 80 centuries in Cape
Town club cricket and once
made 200 in an hour, to
highlight the inequalities.
The player himself was
reluctant to pronounce on the
politics that swirled around his
selection.
Now 72, he gives a rare
interview to the programme .but
still makes it clear that for him
it was a personal battle to prove
he deserved the chance to play
Test cricket.
"I had to take the thing (my
place in the Test team) back; I
had to play for England and go
back to South Africa," he says.
The programme reveals
the extent to which the
England authorities colluded
to keep D'Oliveira, who had
just scored 158 against
Australia in the final Test of
the summer, out of the
touring party.
It glosses over the fact that
Tom Cartwright, whose
withdrawal on fitness grounds
saw D'Oliveira called in at the


last minute, was himself an
opponent of apartheid.
But the upheaval it caused 'aw
the South African government
refuse to let the tour go ahead and
triggered the cutting of all sporting
links with the country until
apartheid was dismantled.
For a sports-mad populace,
these sanctions were the most
obvious sign the world did not
approve of its country's
policies.
In the middle of it all was a
man who had to travel around
the world, change nationality,
make his case for selection by
shear weight of runs and wickets
and still not know whether that
was enough.
Four years ago, D'Oliveira
was honoured as one of the 10
South African cricketers of the
last century in a ceremony at the
Newlands stadium in Cape Town.
It was the first time he
had ever set foot on the
playing area of his home
town Test ground, but he was
received as a favourite son.

Dutch break shootout



jinx to reach



2004 Euro semis


By Kevin Fylan


FARO, Portugal, (Reuters) -
The Netherlands broke their
shootout jinx to beat Sweden
5-4 on penalties yesterday,
and reach a Euro 2004 semi-
final against hosts Portugal.
The teams had drawn 0-0
after 120 minutes played in
stifling heat before Arjen
Robben, the 20-year-old winger,
scored from the spot to spark
wild celebrations among the
huge contingent of orange-clad
fans in the Algarve Stadium.
The Dutch, who will face
Portugal on Wednesday, had
gone out of the European
Championship on penalties in
their last three* appearances, as
well as the World Cup in 1998.
Sweden striker Zlatan
Ibrahimovic blasted his spot
kick over the bar but Dutch
midfielder Philip Cocu also
.missed when he hit the post.
Defender Olof Mellberg's
penalty was then saved by
Edwin van der Sar before
Robben's strike brought the
Netherlands a change in
fortunes they thoroughly
deserved.
"It was the moment of my
life in such a big tournament but
I was very confident and
thought I would score," said


Robben. "It's over now but it
was very exciting and now it's
one big party. Finally we won
a penalty shootout."
For a battling Sweden side
the defeat was hard to take.
"It's terrible to lose on
penalties," said substitute Kim
Kallstrom, who scored their first
spot kick. "We had the chance
to win, in the last five minutes
we had a shot against the bar
and another shot hit the post.
It's terrible."

SWELTERING HEAT
The sweltering heat offered
no encouragement to go forward
with any urgency and the result
was a cautious first half.
Robben troubled the
Swedish defence a couple of
times and the young winger
forced a fine fingertip save from
Isaksson with a 20-metre drive
after 10 minutes.
Sweden's first promising
move came just before halftime
. when Mattias Jonson, at last
injecting some pace into their
attack, raced clear on the right
and pulled the ball back for
Andreas Svensson who shot
straight at defender Wilfred
Bouma.
van Nistelrooy had his first
clear chance straight after the
restart when he mistimed his


header from Robben's cross.
That was the signal for a
much livelier second half,
with Sweden in particular
pushing forward with more
conviction.
With 56 minutes gone,
Ibrahimovic had a shot hacked
off the line by midfielder Philip
Cocu after a piece of sloppy
defending from Jaap Stam who
missed his clearance and let him in.
Van Nistelrooy came
desperately close to the opener
in the 62nd minute when he
showed great control to chest
down a long ball from midfielder
Clarence Seedorf and get in a
shot that Andreas Isaksson
managed to smother.
The Dutch came close to
scoring at the start of extra time
when Robben forced a clumsy
attempt at a save by Isaksson
with the ball squirming off the
keeper's body on to the post:
Sweden suddenly appeared
to be hanging on for dear life as
van Nistelrooy cracked just
wideon the volley and Clarence
Seedorf had a shot palmed over.
But the Swedes almost
sneaked victory when
Larsson hit the top of the bar
and Ljungberg smacked a
shot against the post before
the whistle went to signal a
penalty shootout.

BERLIN, Germany (Reuters)
- Franz Beckenbauer says the
gap in quality between Ger-
many and the top European
sides has grown so much
drastic steps may be required.
"Perhaps we need to give
Germany teams a handicap like
in golf a two-goal lead,"
Beckenbauer said after the na-
tional side were knocked out in
the group stage of Euro 2004.
"When you compare Ger-
many to the other teams, I have
to say the gap didn't narrow in
Portugal.
'The speed and ball control in.


the 120 minutes of Portugal against
England was breathtaking. I fear
we're not going to be able to make
up that difference by 2006," he said
in Bild newspaper.
The 2006 World Cup takes
place in Germany. Beckenbauer
won the World Cup both as
coach and captain.
Lothar Matthaeus be-
lieves former Bayern Munich

cess in 2006:
"I assume that it's already
a done deal and Ottmar Hitzfeld

also in Bild.
"Ottmar has the quality and
experience for the job. He

abroad better than anyone else."

President's Select A mince


Trinidad & Tobago 89-42

... Jammers pound B unit 90-81


By Freddie Auld

THE NatWest Series eventu-
ally got under way yesterday
at Edgbaston well, almost.
Like the opening match, the
second one, between New
Zealand and West Indies, was
abandoned, but at least there
was some action. (Scores: West
Indies 122for 4 (21 overs) v New
Zealand 97for 2 (13.4 overs).
After a quick-fire innings by
Brian Lara boosted West Indies
to 122 for 4 from their reduced
and interrupted quota of 21
overs, New Zealand were cruis-
ing towards their revised target
of 140 when the rain returned
after 13.4 overs to force the um-
pires to call the match off at
around 7.20 pm.
It was a stop-start day all
along. When play finally be-
gan at 2.15, Stephen Fleming
won the toss and
unsurprisingly chose to bowl
first. West Indies progressed
to 39 for 0 from 10 overs be-
fore another lengthy rain-
break, and then added 82 more
runs afterwards. New Zealand
then reached 97 for 2 from 13.4
overs before the rain had the
final say.
West Indies' innings was
one of two parts. Before the
showers returned in the after-
noon, Chris Gayle and
Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who
was wearing two black anti-
glare stickers under each eye
similar to an American foot-
ball player, made a solid start
as the New Zealand attack
failed to take advantage after


winning the toss. However, in
keeping with the series so far,
the rain came back and the
covers were whipped back on.
Play resumed a little
under two hours later, and
New Zealand immediately
hit back as the batsmen
struggled against the seam-
ing ball. Scott Styris struck
with his first delivery when
he trapped Chanderpaul
lbw for a sluggish 14 from
42 balls (56 for 1). Dwayne
Smith then clipped a wide
one from Styris behind to
Brendon McCullum for 1
(59 for 2), and Gayle edged
Jacob Oram to McCullum
for 30 (59 for 3).
Lara and Ramnaresh Sarwan
got things back on track for West
Indies. Sarwan cut and hooked
Oram for four, and Lara clipped
Oram past fine leg for his first
boundary. Then came the impro-
visation from Lara, who smacked
Oram for 22 runs in one over.
The first three balls he shuffled
right across to the off side and
whipped him past fine leg for
four, then smacked the next two
over the off side for a four and a
six.
Lara was then out in bizarre
circumstances. He again moved
over to the off, and after he hit
Chris Cairns to leg, his bat swung
right round and touched the
stumps (115 for 4).
Sarwan then squeezed
Cairns past fine leg for
another boundary, and
West Indies had given
themselves a sporting
chance of victory.


BRIAN Lara's spectacular Knock was in vain.

AN aggressive President's
Select A side employed the ba-,
sic concepts of pressure de-
fence and, by embodying of-
fensive ploys for three quar-
ters of the game, crushed the
visiting Trinidad and Tobago
men's team 89-42 while the
Washington D.C Jammers
joined the fray by disposing
of the President's Select B
team 90-81, as the 'battle for
supremacy' basketball promo-
tion of the Guyana Amateur
Basketball Federation
(GABF) continued Friday
night at the Cliff Anderson
Sports Hall.
In the supporting game the
chosen and more experienced
Guyana B women's unit gained
another win over their un-fan-
cied A counterparts, winning this
time 41-38.
This time the B team did not
let up as in the first game and
kept close to their opponents
before driving to the end to win.
However, it was the men's
matches that provided the inter-
est for the evening. Following the
first game, the President's Select
A team faced the Trinidadians.
It started and ended as a les-
son by the hosts to the visiting
side as coach Bobby Cadogan's
team appeared to be playing at
another level. The Trinidadians
seemed to slumber through the
first segments of the game.
The President's Select A
team established a 20-5 first
quarter advantage, then
outscored Trinidad and- Tobago
21-4 to lead at halftime 41-9.
They then held sway at the
end of the third quarter 56-24
before the President's A team
continued their dominance with
a 33-18 points run difference to
triumph eventually 89-42, thus
creating one of the greatest mar-
gins of victory by a Guyanese
team over Trinidad and Tobago
at this level in recent memory.
It also came as Trinidad and
Tobago were attempting to post
back-to-back wins after they had
scored a solid victory over the
President's Select B team the
night before 84-72.
The manager of the Trinidad
and Tobago team Clayton
Blackman, speaking to Chronicle
Sport, said he lost two of his
better players on Friday night
due to their observance of the
Sabbath as they are Seventh Day
Adventists.
He further said that in the
first quarter the referees were
not in control of the game, al-
lowing some hard calls
against his team. They were
not as consistent as they
should have been.
He added "the guys might
have underestimated the team
too, so did not come out playing
as hard as we should, but the
officiating is what I thought
spoiled the game".
Blackman said a request was
made for the game to be post-
poned on Friday night, as they
would have lost two players but
it was not accepted, He then
promised a better performance
for the rest of the tournament.
He succeeded, as his team
exhibited superior basketball
skills throughout the game.
Steve N\eils (Jnr) led the way


7:02 to play before they
outscored the Guyanese locals
10-2 to lead 81-73 with 3:4 to go
before winning in style 90-81.
This game was one which
displayed the talents of pencil-
thin forward Kester Gomes who
netted 23 points and had five
rebounds. Another promising
player was the dynamic
Rawlston Williams who, like
Gomes, impressed all with his
positive game, while Jomo Au-
gustine, who did not play in the
match against the Trinidadians
also had a significant performance
with 17 points while guard
Marvin Hartman played well for
his 10 points and Trevor
McCloud snatched eight re-
bounds.
But their efforts were not
enough to bring their side vic-
tory as the more composed DC
Jammers controlled the end. This
was despite not having the best
performance from import semi-
professional player forward
Altric Klibor in full rhythm
while getting seven points and
six rebounds. It was the big for-
ward Kenny Advent who led all
scorers with 28 points and pulled
down 10 rebounds, guard Sean
Powell pouring in 17 points and
DarrenAinsworth getting 12 sec-
ond-half points, with Sherland
Douglas gaining seven points and
a similar amount of rebounds in
their winning effort.
Assistant coach of the Jam-
mers, ClarenceWallerson, paid trib-
ute to one of the best players to
have graced these shores inthe Jam-
mers uniform, Dereck Boyd, who
represented Guyana but died by
accident lastApril in Israel.


Coach Bobby Cadogan said
his team would have a much-im-
proved performance in today's
game since the Jammers will
present stiffer opposition. He
said "we are going to come out
victorious ... the guys' confidence
is very high and we look forward
to the clash".
Once again Nyota Peters
was outstanding for the B ter
who defeated their A team ri\ ':
41-38 after holding the edge .t
lemon time 20-11, Peters scored

"C&W remains totally committed to the ongoing

osts Sunday play


By Caroline Cheese
BBC Sport at Wimbledon
WIMBLEDON will open its
doors on the middle Sunday
(today) for only the third
time in its history after
persistent rain prevented any
play yesterday.
All England Club chief
executive Chris Gorringe
confirmed the news in an
announcement on Centre Court.
Thousands are expected to
queue for 'People's Sunday',
the highlight of which will be
Tim Henman's encounter with
Hicham Arazi.
According to the Met
Office forecast, there is a 40%
chance of rain today.
Gorringe. announced that
there will be a reduced ground
capacity as a security measure,
with 11 000 tickets available'for
Centre Court at 35 each.
A further 10 000 people
will be allowed onto Court One
(30) and 7 000 into the
grounds (15).
Play will start at 1100 BST
and tournament referee Alan
Mills is hoping to complete all
the singles third-round matches
by the end of Sunday.
There are 12 third-round
matches outstanding in the
men's singles and 10 in the
women's, along with countless
doubles matches.


Mills admitted there is a
chance the tournament will
not be concluded by next
Sunday.
"With no play yesterday
we are 120 matches behind," he
said.
"If we don't play this
Sunday I think you'll find some

"In this sort of
championship that's asking too
much. Most of the women play
doubles, then there would be no
chance of them finishing by the

The tournament was

Sunday Chronicle June 27, 2004


, By Sherry
-Bollers-Dixon


PHOTOS can be cruel.
Those unposedd'
moments when we're
. captured with a biscuit
midway to mouth and
nod two but three or
more chins, topping
a scraggy neck. Hasn't
happened to you yet?
Count yourself lucky -
and discover how to
make your neck zone
more smooth and
swan-like.


Necks are a serious beauty
challenge. With fewer oil glands
than elsewhere- on the body,
they get dry and crepe-y sooner
than our faces. (Often, in fact,
giving away our age faster than
a glance at the front of bur
passport!).
At the same time, because
we move our heads constantly,
the collagen and elastin fibres
get loosened leading to
sagging. One of the biggest
reasons that women complain of
tired and baggy necks, though,
is downright neglect. Skincare
often stops at the jaw-line,
whereas in some cultures -
France, for instance the
decolletage area is treated with
as much TLC as a woman's
face. And it shows!
But creams, we have
discovered, can offer the
possibility of truly dramatic
improvement (if not quite
turning you into Halle Berry'
overnight!) Here is some
wisdom on how to keep your


neck as unlined and elegant as
possible, while keeping those
extra chins at bay.
1. Cleanse your neck as
thoroughly at night as you do
your face, and sweep with a hot,
wet washcloth in the morning.

2. Give necks the 'double-
whammy' treatment. Every time
you apply a moisturiser or
protective sun cream to.your
face, include your neck and
bosom. And every time you
slather on a body moisturiser,
sweep it upwards ,to the
jawline. That way, neck skin
will never go thirsty.

3. Always use upwards
strokes when applying neck
creams it really does make a
difference.

4. Protect the neck area
whenever you're in strong
sunlight (and throughout the
hottest months) with an SPFI5
moisturiser. There is no greater


D


age giveaway than a mock
crocodile skin and no greater
flatterer than a luscious
d6collete.

5. Beware of wearing

W ASHINGTON (Reuters) Young adults who keep a cool head understress
may be less likt.y to develop high blood pressure as they age, U.S.
researchers said fast week Monday.
A study of 4,000 young adults showed that those who stressed out the
least while playing a difficult video game and taking other tests were less likely to develop high
blood pressure in their 40s.
"In general, the individuals who had larger blood-pressure responses to stress had a greater risk
for developing high blood pressure," Karen Matthews, a professor of psychiatry at the University
of Pittsburgh who led the study, said in a statement.
"This risk was independent of other known risk factors such as race, gender, education, age,
and body-mass index (a measure of obesity)."
Matthews and colleagues used information from a continuing study tracking the natural history
of cardiovascular disease.
In 1985 researchers began studying 5,115 men and women, ages 18 to 30, and re-examined
them at regular intervals.
At the second-year examination, 4,202 of the volunteers who had normal blood pressure
of 140/90 or below took stress tests.
In one, they plunged a hand in ice-cold water and kept it submerged for 45 seconds. Another
involved tracing an image. And one involved a video game which at the time was fairly novel and
still stressful for many to play.
"In general, participants who had the greatest blood-pressure increases during all three tasks
had the highest risk for later high-blood pressure," said Dr. Mary Whooley of the University of
California San Francisco, who worked on the study. The study was published in the journal
Circulation.
"The greater the blood-pressure changes in all three tasks, the earlier the onset of hypertension,"
she said.
After 13 years of follow-up, 353 of the participants developed high blood pressure, they
found.
"This study confirms previous work demonstrating an association between blood-pressure
response to various stressors and the future development of hypertension," said American Heart
Association spokesman Dr. Daniel Jones.
"It is still unclear whether exposure to stress is a part of the cause of hypertension in some
people or whether these tests measuring response to stress are simply good markers for the future
development of hypertension."
High blood pressure eventually affects up to 90 pe cent of Americans as they become
elderly and is a leading cause of heart attack, stroke and heart fallumre.

if your jaw is long and

really short hair which
exposes your jaw and nape,
and not draw it back into
severe styles. If you have
around face, choose a soft,
choppy style rather than flat/
sleek or curly/wavy. Try
getting your hair cut on to
your cheeks to shade them
and narrow the width of the
face. Choppy hair at the
neckline can break up a

their blood pressure checked
regularly, and, if it is high, to
follow the treatment their
doctors prescribe. Along with
drugs, weight loss for the

important ways to treat high

Comments 2: High blood
pressure is especially dangerous
because it has no clear signs. A
person can have it and not even

usually doesn't make a person

as a quick treatment that solves
the problems once and for all.-
For each person, it usually
takes a few weeks or months for
the doctor to work out the best
way to control blood pressure.
Some ways are weight loss for
the overweight, regular exercise,
medicines, sodium restriction
(sodium is a part of salt and is
found in many foods) or a
combination of those.
Treatment may change as
the years go by, but treatment
of one kind or another to control
high blood pressure usually lasts
.for a lifetime, and blood
pressure must be checked
regularly.

Fiction 4: What we eat does

have a lot to do with high blood

eating less salt and less high
sodium foods is the main
treatment to lower blood

The Dentist Advises

A MULTITUDE of factors influence the early growth
and development of the facial region. Habits can
affect the orofadal structures and can influence
the facial growth, oral function, occlusal. (bite)
relationships, an facial aesthetics of a patient.
In other words; a child may even grow not
esembling his; or her parents because of
certain bad habits extant during the formation years.
The main functions of the oral cavity are respiration, swallowing,
mastication and speech. Newborn infants are obligatory nasal
breathers but the lower jaw and tongue must be away from the
throat for the airway to be patent; If nasal breathing becomes
obstructed, oral breathing must commence. Respiratory needs
therefore can be a primary determinant of lower jaw posture and
tongue position in later years.
Respiratory and swallowing movements are activities which
have been noted in the utero. In' fact, it is not unusual to detect a
fetus sucking his or her thumb even four months before being born.
At birth the infant exhibits two reflexes that are related to sucking.
The rooting reflex, which lasts until the child is approximately seven
months, of age, is the movement of an infant's head and tongue
toward a stimulus touching the infant's cheek.
The sucking reflex active movements of the infant's
muscles surrounding the mouth, express milk'from the nipple
and lasts for approximately 12 months. To obtain milk from
the mother's breast, the infant does not need to suck, but
instead stimulates the smooth muscle in the breast to contract
and "express milk unto the tongue, this is called suckling. The
milk is carried to the throat and gullet by the tongue. The
infantile swallow does not o'ecpr the same way as in the case
of the adult. It is characterized by the infant placing their
tongue beneath the nipples, contracting the lower lip, and
*swallowing with the lips together and jaws apart.
On the other hand, the adult swallow is characterized by a teeth
together swallow, with the tongue against the palate relaxed. The
transition from the infantile way of sucking to the adult way is
gradual and any disruption of its normal process can result in
abnormal physical changes in the middle and lower sections of the
face. When a child is more than three ;years old habitually sucks
their fingers it can give rise to 12 different harihful effects that
eventually.lead to disfigurement of the entire dentition, upper and
lower jaws, upper and lower lips and palate. The aftermath, which
depends on the frequency, intensity and duration of the habit, is
invariably an adulteration of the child's beauty.
The term adenoid facies has been uped to describe the facial
appearance of patients with long face and anterior open bite. This
comes from habitual mouth breathing.' More specifically these
patients demonstrate a downward backward rotation of the lower
jaw during growth, excess eruption of the posterior teeth, upper
jaw constriction, anterior open bite and increased anterior (especially
lower) facial length.
The instances whereby harmful habits during a person's
tender years can modify their facial appearance are too
.numerous to mention here. However, the advice given is that
professional intervention should be sought Whenever a young child
is observed to be practicing abnormal habits with the mouth.

TWO days ago, purely by
accident, I found out my
husband was a member of an
online sex and swinger
service. I unintentionally
opened his e-mail, thinking
the computer was logged on
to my name, not his. After a
minute or two of
deliberation, I used the
password to log on to the site


to see what he was doing. I
almost threw up when I read
his profile and found he was
actively seeking women and
couples for extramarital sex.
Yesterday, I became a
member of the site, set up a
fake profile, and contacted him.
I think I was hoping he signed
up as some kind of joke at work
to see who would get the most


replies or something. Today I
got his reply. He wants to get
to know me better and see
pictures.
I am going to play this out
and see how far he takes this,
but I already feel betrayed
and cheated on, even though
it is with me! We've been

how he will conceal her from
you. He is plotting it out in his


mind.
IVIA Don't expect to ever know
the truth from him. The
truth is of no advantage to
other him. In the many letters we
Your receive, the betrayed party
thing feels they never learned the
your entire truth.
If you pursue your quest
for information, you will want
3 to know several things. How
long has he been doing this?
How many partners has he had?
What kind of precautions has he
taken, if any? What does he tell
others about you and your
relationship?
At some point you will tell
your husband what you know.
The more you know, the fewer
excuses he can offer. He may fall
back on the betrayer's standard
excuse: it's your fault.
We don't allow for that.
You don't cheat If you have
problems, you talk to your
spouse. If you are going to get
involved with another person,
you end your marriage first.
Anything less permanently
destroys trust in the
marriage.

M Y husband and I used to work for the same
company, which is how we met. A group of
us from work played on a dart league. I had
no interest in him other than friendship. My
relationship eventually ended, and his
marriage was ending. I was not the cause of his divorce. A year
before I came along, he told his wife all he was to her was a
paycheck.
This woman tells their children I am the tart who broke up their
marriage. Will she ever take responsibility for the problems in their
marriage that caused the breakup? It takes two, and I wasn't one of
them.

BIANCA


Bianca, when the police fail to read a suspect his rights, the
verdict may be thrown out on this technicality. Your husband got
involved with you before his divorce was final. That allows his ex-
wife to say, "It was the other woman."
Your husband committed a procedural error, and she's decided
to argue the technicality.
If you had waited until his divorce was final, things would be
different for all involved. History can't be undone. That's the
problem.

Injured worker denied

Gomipensation, rewarded by. Full Court

Dr. Hugh, the Magistrate in his memorandum of
t is i reasons stated:-
"It is not possible that she could be suffering from all these complaints.
'It is not possible that she could be suffering from these complaints from the accident as none
of the doctors before Dr. Hugh found anything of the kind.
"I therefore could not accept the evidence of Dr, Hugh and accordingly, I dismissed the
applicant's claim for compensation."
Reacting to the Magistrate's findings, the Full Court judgment which was delivered by Chief
Justice Harold Boilers mentioned;-
"We consider the reasoning of the learned Magistrate here is faulty.
"Surely, it was possible for the minority opinion of Dr. Hugh to be judicially acceptable in the
face of all the other contrary medical evidence, especially having regard to George's diagnosis of
low back ache and his evidence that a person suffering from low back ache should not be given
work which involved bending such as weeding". :
The Chief Justice added: "It cannot be assumed that the learned Magistrate made the correct
approach to the medical evidence, but unfortunately expressed his findings in infelicitous language.
"The language he used unambiguously shows an unjudicial approach to conflicting expert
testimony."
The Order of the Magistrate was set aside. Judgment Was entered in favour of the appellant
with costs.
Judges of the Full Court were Chief Justice Harold Boilers and Justice J. Gonsalves-
Sabola.

Sunday Chron


By Terence Roberts


'La Notte':

Dino de Laurentis Films,
Rome (on video and DVD).
Starring Marcello
Mastroianni, Jeanne Moreau,
Monica Vitti. Directed by
Michelangelo Antonioni.
Black and White, subtitled in
English, 1960.
MANY Italian film classics
offer an unusual approach to
film-making and film-viewing.
Instead of making films to
'escape' day-to-day reality,
these films look closely and
honestly into the emotions;
ambitions, conversations,
decisions, attractions of the
heart, etc., we experience in our
real everyday ordinary lives. No
fantastic, extraordinary or retold
historical stories here. Like
reading a thoughtfully written
novel or collection of poems,
listening to instrumental classical
music or jazz, or viewing an
unusual modern art exhibition,
these films make. us reflect on
ourselves, and after seeing them,
something, some attitude in us,
may change, and also make us
want to see such films over and
over again.
But the style of these films
should not be confused with new
media trends like 'Reality TV',
etc., which can show us
something actually happening,
for example: '60 Minutes',
which is perhaps the best
'reality' documentary around.
No, these films on the other
hand create or construct scenes,
dialogue, reasoning, actions, etc.,
which are already influenced by
reality, but by re-arranging it as
art each viewer is allowed to
look at and think about
something, and learn from it
without the personal pain of trial
and error.
For example, in 'La Notte'
or 'The Night', the story of a
thoughtfully troubled writer,
played to perfection by
Mastroianni, and his
discontented wife, played
sensitively by Moreau, takes
place during 24 hours in the
famous modern Italian city of
Milan. From the first scenes of
Moreau walking through traffic
and the congested city streets
where a jet roars low overhead,
and where all sort of stressful
faces and behaviour exist, we
begin to perceive something
truthful about modern life in
general, with its fast pace and
anonymous human mingling.
Obviously, this social
atmosphere can give birth to
certainn stressful attitudes and
actions among humans in their
.everyday lives. We are subtly
ieft to conclude that this
atmosphere is affecting Moreau


and perhaps everyone,
subconsciously. Yet, this is our
reality today, and we have to
learn how to live with it in a
civilised manner.
Mastroianni is a successful
writer, but that does not mean
he is some happy egotist. In
fact, he is deeply troubled by
life's questions and problems,
and the fact that he knows his
wife has lost romantic interest in
him.
The film's first scenes
show them visiting a close
friend, also a writer and
intellectual, who is dying in
hospital, but remains jovial
and encouraging to them to
the end, even ordering and
drinking champagne with
them. In the hospital,
Mastroianni also encounters
an emotionally disturbed girl
who, as though sensing that
affection is missing from his
life, throws herself at him
secretly at every opportunity.
It is such touching and
unusual scenes which made
Antonioni, a painter turned
film-maker, one of the
greatest film directors of the
20th century.
Each scene in 'La Notte' is


like an amazing intricate work of
art, filmed in black and white
which shines like moonlight and
sparkles like charcoal: .
Later, when evening falls, the
writer is encouraged by his wife
to attend a party given by an
unorthodox millionaire and his
eccentric family. It is at this
amazing party that most of the
film takes place. Here we meet
Monica Vitti, the millionaire's
daughter, who will shatter all
over conventional stereotypes of
the rich.
Vitti is one of the most
beautiful yet intellectufi Italian
actresses ever to hit the screen.
Her cool wit, glamour. and
stylish postures set a trend with
this film. Mastroianni is
fascinated by her frankness and
freedom, and the fact that she is
clearly no happier than the
average girl because of her
family's wealth. Their
-conversations are a delight. She
says to him: "What you need is
a girl to make you feel younger
again," knowing that marriage
and love's commitments have cut
him off from what he needs, and
what she can offer. She says
again: "I think love places
certain limitations on a person.


Something creates a vacuum
around him." To which
Mastroianni replies: "But not
inside him," admitting-his need
to break away from his dilemma.
Vitti defines him further,
saying: "You're one of those
who is only worried about those
who lose. A typical intellectual,
egotistic but full of compassion.
Vitti's father offers
Mastroianni a job writing press
reports and brochures for his
company, but he refuses,
preferring to earn his living with
his essays and novels. The
millionaire insists the job will
bring more money and
independence, but when
Mastroianni asks him:
"Independence in what way?"
he does not reply, and changes
the subject.
Meanwhile, at the jazz-filled
all night party where rain bursts
and guests plunge into the
swimming pool fully clothes,
Mastroianni's wife, Moreau,
becomes infatuated with
playboy Roberto, but when
they go for a ride along a country
road in his sports car, she rejects
his seductive advances because it
still does not fill the emotional
emptiness she feels inside.
It is this inner emptiness
which all. humans in their
everyday lives feel from time to
time which is the topic of 'La
Notte'. The point-the film and
director Antonioni makes, is that
human problems in the modern
world must be faced by a modem
art which looks at individuals,
society, and the world around
them honestly, truthfully, rather
than through conventional
sensationalism. We can begin by
looking at European films like
this one.
'La Notte' opened at
Georgetown's Strand de Luxe in
the mid-sixties. This cinema,
coincidentally, was the only
Georgetown cinema built in a
modern style of concrete design
popular in Milan, where 'La
Notte' was filmed. In fact,
Strand's famous inner ceiling of
imbedded lights like stars in a
night sky, was adapted from the
exact d6cor of a Milan cinema
designed in- 1953 by the
innovative Argentine-Italian
painter/designer Lucio Fontana.
Strand's use of air-condition,
however, was only because
Strand was situated in the
congested humid city core,
unlike most Georgetown
cinemas. Strand's reputation was
made by the enormous amount
of high-quality old and new
films it showed each week, and
also the fact that in 1959, when
this cinema first opened with
Marlon Brando's 'Sayonara'
congratulations were sent by
every leading Hollywood and
European film studio, filling an
entire- page of the Daily
Chronicle.
Strand's fame went far
beyond the municipalities of
Brickdam, Lacytown, and
downtown which it served, and
crowds of male and female
Guyanese professionals from
nearby offices certainly found
films like 'La Notte' serious,

NEW YORK: As the'early
morning sunshine softly kisses
the earth's surface, life on the fa-
mous Liberty Avenue in Rich-
mond Hill, Queens, has been
given a jumpstart to its first leg
of a long day's hectic journey.
With a thin film of fresh mom-

*",igl


ing fog still evident in the air, the
combination of cars honking and
loud music blaring out of speed-
ing vehicles breaks the some-
what peaceful spell that still lin-
gers from the previous night.
. Liberty Avenue -the bustling
avenue that rises with the sun,
is a place that sleeps little.
Stretching from the Van Wyck
Expressway, rolling all the way
down to Rockaway Boulevard,
Queens, Liberty Avenue has
blossomed into a very busy
strip, .which has become a bee-
hive of non-stop commercial ac-
tivities over the years.
If variety is the spice of life,
as they say, then Liberty Avenue
is the place where variety is eas-
ily accessible. Whether its ev-
erv-day commodities like veg-


tables, fruits, fresh flowers,
spices and groceries or clothing,
bags and CD's, to the latest
brands of cell phones, digital
cameras, DVD players and other
electrical gadgets these and
more can be readily found in one
of the many shops that line the
avenue.
It can safely be said that


Liberty Avenue reaches its
peak during the hours of 12
p.m. to 5 p.m. on any given
day. While there are those
shoppers who prefer to con-
duct their business in the crisp
cool of the morning, there are
others who like to take care
of things with a brilliant sun
hovering above their heads.
Either way, during these
hours, the 'hustle and bustle'
is so severe that people are
practically breathing down

each other's throat!
The 'midday mad rush' is.
even more pronounced, particu-
larly when the traffic is backed
up and cars are honking annoy-
ingly at each other. Meanwhile,
the drivers are anxiously waiting
to 'beat it' once the green light
comes on. To complete the idyl-
lic scene, mention must be made

Some of the clothing and
quor stores on the Avenue.



r. r"-'t- -


of the many, mixed groups of ex-
cited shoppers who are waiting
impatiently to cross the rbad to
bargain at the other stores on the
avenue.
The echo of cars, 'clip-clap,
clip-clap' as people walk by,
loud music and peoples' spirited
chatters create a unique blend of
noise pitch against a rich metro-
politan backdrop that is reminis-
cent of many big, diverse shop-
ping areas around the country.
As one traipses down the


avenue, one is confronted with
many lively scenes where stalls
in front of many shops are
strewn over with items such as
beautiful artificial jewelry,
shoes, designer's jeans and
shirts, bags and other accesso-
ries. There is no need for subtle
window-shopping here, as prod-
ucts offered in many shops are
amply displayed outside on
hangers and shelves.
Over the years, Liberty Av-
enue has become the
heartthrob of the New York
Guyanese community and to
a large extent, the West Indian
community as a whole. As a
matter of fact, Richmond Hill
is now known as 'Little
Guyana' because of the large
concentration of Guyanese
who settled there. The avenue
has grown into the centre of
attraction for many who mi-
grated from the West Indies.
Indeed, West Indians take
great pride in the fact that many
products, particularly food
items, which make delicious
West Indian dishes, can be eas-
ily found in one of the many
grocery stores on the avenue.
This is a wonderful reminder of
home, noted one shop owner.
This is also tangible testimony
that immigrants -from the West
Indies brought with them their
rich heritage and culture, noted
another businessman.
Years ago, Liberty Avenue
was nothing like it is today. Af-
ter the large influx of Guyanese
who migrated to the United
States during the sixties and sev-
enties, many saw the need to
fashion a shopping area which
reflects a rich blend of Guyanese
flavour.
One shop owner alluded to
the great increased in the volume
of traffic on the avenue where,
"you could hardly walk without
bumping into another person, if
you're not careful!"
He related that 16 years ago,
there were hardly that many
people,. "even on a hot and


sunny midday".
He further stated that
"though there are slow seasons,
business is doing great". A
Guyanese by birth, he said that
he would not trade his store for
anything in the world, as he
loves "serving the West Indian
people".
Liberty Avenue has patches
of spots, which are more con-
spicuously busy than other ar-
eas on the bustling avenue. The
busiest part. of the commercial
strip stretches from Lefferts Av-
enue and goes all the way down
to 125th Street. Here, the traffic
and flow of people are much
more evident than other areas.
Lefferts Avenue is the last
stop for the 'A' train, which op-
erates all the way to downtown
Manhattan, the financial centre
of New York City and to a large
extent, corporate America.
The services of the 'A' train
help to increase the volume of
traffic between Queens and
Manhattan. Then, the Green
Line Bus, Q1l10, also makes fre-
quent stops on Lefferts on its
way to Rockaway Boulevard
and then back to Jamaica in
Queens.
The lone bus that services
commuters on Liberty Avenue is
the 'brownish' Q112, which
"runs pretty frequently", ac-
'-,.1


At the juncture of Lefferts
and Liberty Avenue, many cab
drivers linger around, particu-
larly in the evening, each com-
peting with the other to lure
tired passers-by who are headed
for home after a long, hard day
at work.
Gregory told this newspaper
that it is a "fun, part-time job
for him". He has his regular job
at a store in Queens, but, to
make ends meet, he "started to
operate as a taxi driver in the eve-
nings."
"You know, in these hard
economic times we live, one has
to have a back-up job," he stated
seriously.
He particularly enjoyed
"being able to help out the tired
shoppers or the very exhausted
people who are going home from
work", adding that sometimes,
he ended up meeting friends he
knew from back home.

nent Guyanese businessman, Ed
Ahmad, that is strategically

ionable and the prices are reason-
able," it's 'the buy factor' for
many serious people.
She shops here all the time,
she said, because she could "pick
almost anything up for any oc-
casions" at prices she could af-
ford.
"I can get more clothes here
for less mohey," she offered,
adding that the clothes, whether
tops, pants, skirts or dresses are
not only trendy, but "they are
also very durable and hot in
style!"
She quickly compared the
prices here to those at the shops
in Greenacres Mall in Long Is-
land, where "the prices for jeans
and tops are so very expensive
at Macy's and Sears."
"You pay for the brand
names, and why, when it's the
same clothes anyway," she ex-
plained.
As for East Indian cultural
apparels, there are no shortages
in this department either. The
popular Annjee's Sari Store,
Choji's and DJ'S are havens for
the most intricate hand-woven,


About a year and a half ago,
two new eating joints have
joined the long list of eateries on
the avenue Pizza Hut Express
and Taco Bell.
Then, there are Kaiteur Res-
taurant, Brown Betty Restau-
rant, Sybil's and Singh's Roti
Shop, among others that
specialise in catering West Indian
dishes for their clients.
'Clubbing' and socialising are
popular pastimes for many
young people in the area ind to-
wards this end, several of these
clubs are scattered on the av-
enue. Readily coming to mind
are the famous Parrot Club and
Bar, Club Tobago, The Gemini
Bar and The Blue Dolphin
which are all popular hanging-
outs among the young folks.
Liberty Avenue also boasts
a number of impressive buildings
of modern architecture that
house beautiful offices for mort-
gage bankers, brokers, real estate
agents, insurance agents, doctors'
and lawyers' practices, to name
a few.
Lately, there has been an in-


cording to Sunita.
She migrated from the twin
island republic and though "no
place is like Trinidad and To-
bago", for her, when she visits
Liberty Avenue, she is very
much reminded of her home
country.
"I like to shop here, because
many of the things I need are
sold right here," she said.
Speaking with a deep
Trinidadian accent, Sunita,
who is a working mother of
two kids, noted that when her
"mango achar and pepper
sauce are finished" she could
very easily get these pickles at
Tony Yassin's Spice World
store or one of the other gro-
cery stores on Liberty. That is,
until her mother sends some
for her from Trinidad, she
added with a broad grin.


and greets visitors and shoppers
alike who grace Liberty Avenue.
Starting at Lefferts and go-
ing up the avenue, there are
many shops which lined the av-
enue that sell designer clothes of
the latest in pop culture, as well
as, the more trendy stuff that is
hot in the haute couture world,
particularly, for teenagers and
young adults.
Looking for the perfect out-
fit for a casual occasion, a party,
a formal evening, or even a
"funky nightclub outing"? Then,
look no further. Knockout,
Smash, Annjee's or the other
clothing stores on Liberty Av-
enue, is bound to have some-
thing for everybody, the conser-
vative, as well as, the more dar-
ing.
According to Samantha,
"the clothes here are very fash-


beautifully designed saris,
lehengas and shalwars, with
matching jewellery and shoes, all
imported from the subcontinent
of India.
If the event is an elaborate
East Indian wedding, then these
stores carry almost everything
for such grand affairs.
After long hours of shop-
ping, which simultaneously in-
volve a lot of walking, exhaustion
and hunger eventually crawl there
way into the body. Well, suffice
it to say that Liberty Avenue
boasts a wide range of restau-
rants and eating-houses that be-
deck the avenue.
There is a Burger King,
Popeye and McDonald's to serve
the hungry who are looking "to
grab a quick bite of sandwich and
a drink", said Robert in line at
McDonald's.

CLASSY, sophisticated
and romantic was the way lo-
S cal designer Ms. Sonia Noel
described her collection 'Sim-
ply Irresistible 2' to be
launched at the Le Meridien
Pegasus Hotel on July 4.
Noel, in an interview with
the Sunday Chronicle said that
sleep wear, fantasy wear,
matching clothing for mothers
-' and daughters, a pregnancy line,
suits for men, and swimwear are
just some of the clothing that
will be on display.
According to Noel, the idea
to launch 'Simply Irresistible 2'
is a result of the praise and posi-
tive public response received


from the first show held last
July 6.
About 38 models ranging
from ages seven to 60 years old
will show off the new line of
clothing. Foreign models are
among the 38.
The six overseas models
from New York, Trinidad and
Tobago, Barbados and Suriname
include Montana, Joyann
Baker, Lisa Yates, Vincent Stout
and Shawn Field.
Among the local models are
Ronessa McAdam, Negla
Brandis, Desu Harry, Mark
Lewis, Ben Kennedy, Kester
Thomas and Kathy Joseph.
Noel promised patrons that
this year's show will be "ten
times better" than last year's
with superior choreography
which will be done by Barba-
dian RachelCox and Guyanese
Vivian Dash.
She said that everything is
currently on stream for the per-
fect launch.

NOT too long from now,
should things remain as they
are, The Guyana Music
Teachers Association might
just fold up its tent and slip
away into the night.
For the number of music
teachers in the Co-operative Re-
public is dwindling alarmingly,
and the species is clearly endan-
gered.
"At the moment we have no
teachers for voice, violin, guitar,
woodwind nor brass, and the
number of piano teachers we do
have is dwindling," lamented a
Guyana Music Teachers Asso-
ciation member in an interview
last week.
The piano tuner is also an
endangered species, and when
the current complement disap-
pears, well...
A piano teacher herself,
Marilyn Dewar, the
Association's secretary, ex-
plained that the organisation's
mandate is to cover music teach-
ers, assisting in procuring for
them books and music and in-
formation of new things musi-
cal. And this isnot always easy,
she says, for Guyana is just a
bit too far removed from classi-
cal music centres.
Music teachers here are af-


tic. I am working with enthusi-
astic models and that makes the
job so much easier," Noel said.
According to the designer,
the "clothing is to die for" and
persons will not be disap-
pointed.
Some of the colours that will
be used are earth tones, black
and white, different shades of
pink along with other vibrant
colours such as green and or-
ange.
The clothing, which in-
cludes sheer linen, cotton and
rayon, will be hand-painted and
tie-dyed and will be accessorised
with shells, beads and copper.
Apart from local coverage
of the event, Caribbean Maga-

filiated to the Royal School of
Music in London, and officials
there are sometimes instrumen-
tal in facilitating music examina-
tions and other programmes in
Guyana.
Each year, music students
here do theory and practical ex-
ams for the Royal School of
Music, with examiners coming
once a year for the practical ex-
aminations. He examines about
120 students annually, mostly
piano students, ranging from
Grade One to Eight.
The Royal School is aware
of the problem of teachers here
acquiring music books when
they come out, and so the
School allows books for exami-
nations in one year to be used
in the following year, allowing
the books to reach Guyana and
be studied by students for their
exams.
"This means that books for
the 2003 examinations, for in-
stance, may be used for the
2004 examinations," Mrs.
Dewar explains.
Academia is also playing a
hand in removing students from
music.

Have music

move up in school," says Mrs. Dewar." Not too long after they start music lessons they
have lessons in school, lessons for SSEE and then lessons for CXC and then A Levels and then
off to University or some other time-consuming course. There are a few who would stay with
the music, but too many really."
As for music in schools, this is more the exception rather than the rule. A few top schools such as
Bishops' High, Queen's College and St. Joseph High offer music, along with a few private schools
such as the Marian Academy and the New Guyana School.
"Many of our competent musicians live overseas and we try ever so often to get them to come
home, even for a month or two to have classes, but we are hardly ever successful," says Mrs. Dewar.
Of course, the ideal would be to have a good music school here, and the general feeling is that if one
is established, there would be enough students to make the project viable. And of course the school
would attract teachers.
Mrs. Dewar recalls the not-so-long ago when'music festivals were staged with performances by
school children. The musical festival was a vehicle for identifying talent and many of Guyana's musicians
came out this way. Pianist Ray Luck and baritone Frank Daniels come easily to mind, a considerable
flowering that emerged from the Music Festival.
The Ministry of Culture. Youth and Sport has plans to arouse some interest in the performing arts
through a series of festivals planned over the next few months. There were three evenings of poetry
reading recently and a festival of choral music is planned for July. This is commendable and could be a
useful beginning.
But there is much more to be done. Training in music is vital to building talent and the music
teacher is indispensable in this exercise. And of course the school is the best place to start.
It would be a pity if good music disappears from us, if our children stop making music and
performing, if our steelbands slip into further mediocrity and our vocalists sing without the finesse
that makes the exercise worthwhile.
Historians know fully well that it is our culture that enriches the spirit more than anything else,
providing a panacea for the many ills that beset us.
If one is allowed to paraphrase the Bard, "My kingdom for a good music school."

scooter drivers
By Claudia Parsons
ROME (Reuters) Mariolina Mololi dreams of bringing
civilisation to Italy's chaotic streets.
That means the end of an era for carefree 14-year-olds who for
generations have been allowed to drive scooters without so much as
a permit or a driving lesson.
The sight of adolescents buzzing around on their scooters is as
quintessentially Italian as pizza and pasta as are the daily reports of
teen-agers killed after speeding along the Tiber or running a red light
in Rome's hectic traffic.
"We're not going to save the world, but it's something," said
Moioli, explaining a plan to teach "good behaviour" on the roads as
part of the preparation for the introduction of a "mini-licence" for
under-18s wanting to drive scooters. Hundreds of thousands of teen-
agers now face the prospect of having to park their beloved Vespas
starting July 1 or pay a fine of more than $600 if they are caught
without the mini-license.
Currently anybody is allowed to drive a scooter with an engine
of 50 cc from the age of 14 without a licefce.
"It's about behaviour and values, about respect for life, how to
behave with others, basically how to drive in a civilised way," said
Moioli, director general of the Education Ministry.
But 17-year-old Giovanni De Angelis and many fellow teen-
agers are crying foul.
"It ridiculous. For more powerful motorbikes maybe it makes
sense but not for the smaller ones. And maybe for 14-year-olds if
they're so small they can't even reach the handle bars."
De Angelis will not be taking the exam himself, he added with a
shrug, because his scooter has been stolen.
"It's been chaos, at least they should give a bit more time," he said.
Motor organizations also complain that there has been insuffi-
cient time to complete the courses and the tests.
"It's not that we're against the mini-licence but you have to give
people the time to attend the free courses in schools," said Claudio de
Viti of the National Association of Bicycles, Motorcycles and Acces-
sories (ANCMA) representing manufacturers.
"If you force them to go to driving schools and pay then it's just
another barrier to buying a scooter," he said, adding that scooter sales
had fallen 30 percent in the year to May because of uncertainty
about the new mini-licence.
Moioli said around 700,000 teen-agers had registered for the
courses in schools.but not all schools offered the classes or tests .nd
20-25 per cent of those who took the test had failed.
De Viti said only around 250,00(0een-agers would have obtained
their mini-licence by the deadline.
"The risk is there will be a lot of people driving Illegally
which is worrying not just because of the fines but also because
their insurance will not be valid. If somebody has an accident
the Insurance won't cover it," he said.
Deaths in road accidents in Italy have halved in the last three
decades to around 12 for every 100,000 people a year, but the rate of
fatalities in the 15-29 age group has barely changed.
Moioli said the problem was that young people often had a sense
of invincibility. "They seem to believe that they can deal with the
risks, that it'll happen to others but it won't happen to them, and
this leads to a lot of accidents," she said.
She might not be amused by 16-year-old Andrea De Sanctis, who
confesses he had an accident last year on his scooter involving a tree.
"It wasn't my fault. It was the tree that was going the wrong way
down a one-way street."
Transport Minister Pietro Lunardi has said he opposes any change
in the July 1 deadline. "The regulation will come into force as fore-
seen on July 1. And it will be the parents who will thank me for this
decision," he said.
Scooter maker Plaggio, worried about the impact on sales,
has offered to pay the fees at private driving schools for clients
under 18 who buy.a new scooter during the summer; months
when spools are closed.

By Alister Doyle,
Environment Correspondent

OSLO (Reuters) Fibreglass
sharks might help to scare
endangered sea turtles away
from long-line fish hooks as
part of a drive to protect the
world's migratory species, the
U.N. Environment
Programme (UNEP) said last
week.
"Many sea turtle
populations are declining
precipitously," UNEP said in a


booklet on how to protect the
marine creatures, marking the
25th anniversary of the U.N.
Convention on Migratory
Species agreed in Bonn on June
23, 1979.
Turtles are among about
10,000 species, ranging from
butterflies to whales, that move
regularly to new breeding or
feeding grounds. Human
activities threaten to wipe out
many of them.
In the booklet, focused on
turtles and long-line fishing,


UNEP recommends the use of
hooks shaped like a 'G' rather
than the more usual 'J', saying
they are harder for turtles to
swallow. Hooks should be at
depths of at least 40 metres.
Other deterrents being
researched include placing
fibreglass sharks near fishing
lines to frighten turtles away,
and the use of acoustic signals
or blue dye to make bait less
attractive, it said.
In long-line fishing,
hundreds or thousands of hooks


are strung from lines several
miles long to catch species like
tuna or swordfish. But turtles
are often caught accidentally.
"People tend to
underestimate the vulnerability
of migratory species," U.N.
Secretary General Kofi Annan
said in a statement on the
Convention's 25th anniversary.
"Yet if current trends


continue, more and more of
them will be driven to the edge
of extinction," he said of
migratory species ranging from
monarch butterflies to bats, or
pelicans to snow leopards.

EXTINCTION THREAT

UNEP said leatherback and
loggerhead turtles may
disappear from the Pacific
Ocean in the next 20 years
unless major changes occur
soon. Loggerhead turtles, for
instance, can swim from their
birthplace in Japan to feeding
grounds off Mexico.
The booklet also gives
advice on how to get a hook out
of the throat of a snagged turtle
- first wedge a piece of wood in
its beak to stop it from biting
you and then use a de-hooker or
bolt cutter.
If the turtle seems sluggish
when caught, you can try lifting


its back flippers to let any water
run out of its lungs. Turtles
evolved 200 million years ago
and were contemporaries of the
now extinct dinosaurs.
The Secretariat of the
Convention on Migratory
Species paints a bleak picture of
the outlook.
"Migratory species face
new obstacles and threats to
their survival in a world subject
to climate change, global
population growth and the
degradation of marine and
terrestrial areas," it said. "The
risk of extinction increases."
Annan urged more
governments to sign up to the
convention. Nations like
Canada and Brazil are not
parties to the deal, while the
United States, Russia and
China are among those
taking part in the
agreements without formally
acceding to them.

Combating




desertification


( COMBAT
desertification,
ways of
managing dry land
ecosystems in order to
prevent desertification need
to be identified and
implemented. Public
awareness, science and
technology, consultation and
financial aid are all integral
to the solution.
Developed and
developing countries have to
work together to address the
'problem. Assistance by way
of substantial financial
resources and access to
appropriate technology,
knowledge and know-how
must be provided by
developed countries to
developing countries.
Developing countries must
allocate adequate resources
and establish strategies to
combat desertification and
drought. Additionally
affected countries should
address the underlying
causes of the problem and
pay special attention to
relevant socio-economic
factors. Awareness and
participation of local
population in action to
combat desertification and
drought is vital to combating
the problem as are
appropriate laws, policies
and action programmes.
Successful strategies and
actions to combat
desertification would


ultimately result in the
number of animals grazing on
land being reduced; soil
conditions enhanced by
practices such as mulching
and crop rotation; farming
on marginal lands being
prohibited and reforestation
take place.

To address the issue of
desertification and its wide
reaching impacts, the United
Nations formulated the
United Nations Convention
to Combat Desertification
and Droughts. This
convention though its
objectives, seeks to "to
combat desertification and
mitigate the effects of
drought in countries
experiencing serious drought
and/or desertification,
particularly in Africa ...." The
convention also provides
guidelines- for the
development of action plans
to deal with these issues.

DROUGHTS
The topic of
desertification and droughts
go hand in hand. However,
there is the misconception
that desertification causes
droughts. This, however, is
not the case. Droughts can
increase the possibility of
desertification occurring. But
well managed lands can
recover from droughts, when
the rains come.


WHATARE DROUGHTS?
A drought is a period of
abnormally dry weather.
Many countries, experience
droughts, -at one time or
another and the severity of
the droughts vary. In
Guyana, during the El Nino
period we suffered from a
minor drought, since there
was no rainfall for a
prolonged period of time.
Other countries are often
severely affected from the
impacts of droughts, such as
many African countries..

EFfECISOFDROUGHJTS
The effects of droughts
are usually Very far reaching
as water is integral to many
activities that humans
depend on for their
livelihood. The effects can
be divided into three
categories. -

1. Environmental
Impacts.
Droughts damage natural
habitats, cause the soil to
dry out-and can lead it to be
blown away, causing sand
and dust storms. i

2. Economic I pacts
These impacts include
food and energy shortages,
reduction in livestock
quality, water scarcity,
poverty, loss of jobs and
income. It also increases
financial debts to
institutions.


3. Social Impacts
Droughts can lead to
malnutrition and famine and
general food insecurity. This
in turn can lead to migration
and .unemployment.
Conflicts can also arise,
because unlike other
disasters, droughts tend to
drive people apart as
communities fight for limited
water supply.
Public health risks also
increase due to an increase
in pollutants.

Comments 5: Keeping weight
down is especially important for
members of families that have a
history of high blood pressure, heart disease, or stroke. As a first
step in treating high blood pressure, doctors often ask overweight
patients to lose weight. Weight loss alone sometimes lowers blood
pressure to normal levels.
Fiction 6: Hypertension is a disease of old age
Fact 6: Most cases do develop in persons between 30 and 45
years of age. Some of the more serious cases may actually begin at
younger ages.
Fiction 7: Once you get hypertension, and it affects your brain,
there's nothing you can do about it.
Fact 7: On the contrary, you can do a great deal about it. Lowering
your blood pressure by lifestyle changes and proper treatment and
keeping it at a normal level will-often prevent further brain damage.
Fiction 8: Hypertension significantly restricts a person's
life.
F4ct 8: Definitely NOT TRUE.A person with high blood pressure
can lead a normal life if there is early and proper treatment and if the
treatment is continued.
Always ask a qualified nutritionist or dietitian for
help in selecting foods for a good diet. Take regular
exercise and observe other health rules and, if you
are over 40, get your blood pressure checked. (NYAM

ARIES -- You're keeping it real even as you knock their socks
off with your total magnificence. While you sense their
amazement, you're ready to reveal everything else you've got
up your sleeve. You know the difference between making a
spectacle of yourself and generating spontaneous loyalty. If
you want their hearts as well as their minds, truth in
advertising was never more important than it is now.
TAURUS -- You're the best matchmaker in town. When it comes to
hooking up souls in need or the perfect idea with the best
resources, you're the one to call. Even if all parties know
what they want; you're the bridge over any communication
glitches. Negotiations are sure to run smoothly once you step
in and take over. Even better, you're everyone's favourite
host or confidant. Other people want to please you even when
you're not asking for the pleasure.
GEMINI -- Does anyone else get what's so funny? Maybe or maybe
not, but you're not losing any sleep around that. What's
important is your own amusement. Your own private jokes bring
a cute little smile to your lips. People may not get you, but
they're eager to try. Don't write it off as mere intellectual
curiosity. Physical attraction runs strong and fast right
now. You almost have to move on that situation.
CANCER -- Getting what you want is harder once your goals and
desires change. Take heart, because harder doesn't mean
impossible. You grow through these challenges. The stars are
lining up all necessary ingredients if you'll just stop and
look at them. Your single greatest obstacle may be another
person, which means that you'll have to find a way around what
you can't roll over or penetrate.
LEO -- Your best strategy is keeping your options open. It's
an easy gesture when you already know what you want. By
relaxing, enjoying life and keeping stress well out of the
equation, you'll be in the right place at the right time for
creativity and intelligence to work their magic. Romance is
just waiting to pounce. So is inspiration, if that's what
you're looking for instead. The World is a-benign place full
of sweet surprises. You're lucky and you know it. Never forget-
who your friends are..
VIRGO -- Luckily, it's the right time for thinking deep thoughts
and taking stock of your situation. If you need to make
something happen, you know who to call. A trusted friend
easily takes care of a situation that you need some help with.
You owe this person a debt of gratitude, unless he or she is
already repaying a favor by doing this. Still, it never hurts
to say thank you.
LIBRA -- Look who's out and about. The social butterfly emerges
from his or her cocoon. The phoenix is rising again. Yes,
you're on fire, and it's a fire that warms without burning.
You'll light up any gathering with your presence. If you'd
rather start something instead, it's your move. Pleasure comes
in whatever form you desire it the most. For those who can't
make up their minds, feel free to try a little of everything.
The stars spread a sumptuous buffet before you. Satisfaction
is. the ultimate goal.


*SCORPIO -- Is instinct really the engine that drives you? Are
you tapping into an old memory or dialing up a clear connection
to some ancient wisdom? Urges run strong, and they're a message
from the gods, too. Listen to your consciousness and that
includes the un- and sub-, too. You're trying to distract
yourself from what you really want, and it may not be working.
Hang out with people who genuinely care about you. They'll
keep you safe, honest and happy.

comedy routine? Well, okay, so maybe it was. You may make some
new friends out of this, but in any case, you're guaranteed to
make an impression. Your contributions to. society last longer
when you let it build organically. Others find it easier to
believe in you when you so obviously love what you do.
CAPRICORN -- Change is easy. Just rearrange the pieces, switch
the music or look in a different direction, and you have
something new. But are you looking for lasting improvement?
Now that's a different story, and one that may require more
energy. Sit down and make a grand plan. Aggressive strategies
do get the job done. Don't worry, everything will fall into
place once you're committed to changing your life for the
better.
SAQUARIUS -- Partners are allowed to have their differences.
Two people can't be alike in every way. The question is how
well you get along in the big picture. Whether the nature of
this relationship is romance, friendship or business, what
you get from it is a valid gauge of its success. The law of
averages is on your side right now, anyway.
PISES -- You're a good listener. You have a broad perspective
if on the issues. People expect you to be wise and motivated, and
that's flattering. However, your broad-mindedness might
actually keep you from making a decision right now which is
fine. Postpone choosing until you feel your head is clearer.
Clear the decks for your sincere effort. Tomorrow will be a
better time to make that' tb6ioe.

Pet Pediatrics


OVER the previous
months we have discussed
problems associated with
pregnancy and whelping.
Having now exhausted this
topic, and with the pregnancy
now ended and puppies/kit-
tens having been born, we
can begin a new chapter and
turn our attention to ail-
ments that might occur in
these newborn offspring.

BREATHING DIFFICUL-
TIES IN THE NEWBORN

We had described in a pre-
vious TVA (29-02-2004) how
the mother dog/cat severs the
umbilical cord and begins to
massage the newborn pups/kit-
tens. We had also said that each
pup/kitten is surrounded by (en-
closed in) its own amniotic sac.
This sac ruptures as the pup/kit-
ten is born. Sometimes, how-


ever, the puppy/kitten is born
enveloped in the intact amniotic
sac. This means that the pup/
kitten will not be able to
breathe. The sac has to be re-
moved quickly (within 30 sec-
onds).
Usually, the dam (mother
dog) will lick the surrounding
membrane with her rough tongue
and rupture and remove the sac.
It doesn't matter if she eats the
membrane which might contain
hormones that will assist in the
letdown of her milk.
If the mother dog fails to re-
move the sac enveloping the
pup/kitten, you have to inter-
vene immediately. This poses a
slight problem, because you
might remember me telling you
that you should not disturb her
when she is giving birth. (TVA
'22-02-2004; 28-03-2004). At the
same time, however, you should
not totallv ahandon her. You can


take a peep every now and then,
and stay on to see the pup/kit-
ten delivered when you notice
the contractions commencing.
This is easier said than done
where cats are concerned. They
are secretive, and most of the
time (even after you have pre-
pared her "delivery nest")
mother cats will hide them-
selves away and give birth to
their kittens in same obscure
place (under the bed, in the
wardrobe, in your neighbour's
yard, etc). However, problems
of the sac remaining around the
newborn kittens are rare occur-
rences..
So, how do you remove
the amniotic sac from around
the puppy, if the mother fails
to do this by herself? Well,
simply you just tear the cov-
ering membrane away from
the puppy. You start the tear
from the mouth end and work


your way backwards over the
body. You can then suck or
wipe off the fluid accumu-
lated around the nostrils/
mouth of the pup. A bulb sy-
ringe comes in handy in this
respect (sucking off of the
fluid). Rub the puppy briskly
but gently with a soft towel
or tissue.
An alternate method of
clearing the secretions is to hold
the puppy in your hands while
supporting his head. Then
swing him in a downward arc
(centrifugal action), stopping
abruptly when his nose is
pointing to the floor. This helps
to expel liquid from his nostrils.
Present the puppy to the
mother to lick, sniff and cuddle.


THE VET


After a difficult delivery, a
puppy may be too weak or too
flaccid to breathe on his own.
Squeeze the chest gently from
side to side and then from front
to back. If the puppy still will
not breathe, place your mouth
over his mouth and nostrils and
breathe out gently until you see
his chest expand. Do not exhale
too forcefully as this can rup-
ture his lungs. Then remove


your mouth to allow the puppy.
to exhale. Repeat this several-
times until the puppy is breath-
ing and crying.
Please vaccinate your
pets and adopt-a-pet from the
GSPCA's Animal Clinic and
Shelter at Robb Street and
Orange Walk. Also, find out

BAGHDAD (Reuters) -
Electric shock treatment is
usually administered without
anesthetic at Iraq's biggest
psychiatric hospital.
Only 16 doctors treat 900
patients. Mortar rounds land in
the courtyard, traumatising the
unstable.
But there is still a glimmer
of hope at Baghdad's Al-Rashad
Teaching Psychiatric Hospital, a
sprawling facility caught be-
tween U.S. troops and guerril-
las that is recovering from post-
war looters who raped patients
last year.
With clean facilities, work-
shops and job programmes for
patients, it hopes to ease the an-
guish of mental illness in a city
plagued by violence that offers
little sanity outside.
"I am scared of going out-
side to Baghdad. I feel safer


here," said Hagop Ouzounian,
50, who learned to speak fluent
English in Los Angeles many
years ago.
"Even if I could leave,
where would I go? There is lots
of unemployment in Baghdad.
All the foreign companies and
Japanese companies have left
Iraq. I hope it will get better."
Ouzounian is sharp, but
like 75 per cent of the hospital's
patients, he suffers from
schizophrenia, a disorder that is
still shunned in Iraq and many
Arab countries.

LIMITED RESOURCES
Medical supplies were er-
ratic during 13 years of United
Nations sanctions and the pic-
ture has not changed much since
U.S.-led troops toppled Saddam
Hussein and promised prosper-
ity.
"We really need anesthetics.
We have to conduct electric


shock treatment two to three
times a week and we hardly
have anything for the pain," said
Dr Yasser Abdullah.
Nearby, an elderly patient
repeatedly asks a visitor for the
time and then apologises pro-
fusely. Another man holds up a.
small mirror and yells the Iraqi
slang phrase "Shako mako?T
(what's up?)" as he hops inside
a locked ward.
Stabilising the patients is
difficult enough without
Baghdad's deadly distractions;
Post-war battles between'
U.S. occupation troops and inb-
surgents have created new emo-.
tional crises in wards located
near an American base.
* Six mortar rounds and a
rocket-propelled grenade
lInded in the hospital
grounds recently. Patients ti

OS ANGELES
(Billboard) -
On 'Should I
Go', a track
from Brandy's
new album, the singer
grapples with her concerns
about re-entering the music
game.
"I'm sitting on the edge of
the industry wondering if it's all
that important to me to get my
records back out there on the
street again/This game ain't
what I'm used to."
Trepidation aside, Brandy
is jumping back in the fray with
'Afrodisiac', her fourth Atlantic
studio album. The set is due in
stores on Tuesday.
The one-time teen
phenomenon is also busy
getting people used to the idea
that there's a new Brandy in
town. Now a veteran artist and
mature woman of 25, Brandy
has endured major professional
and personal changes in the two
years since her last album, 'Full
Moon'. Pregnant and married
when that album was released,


Brandy is now a divorced
mother.
Just two weeks before her
new album's release, Brandy
severed ties with manager Benny
Medina of Handprint
Entertainment. Her mother, Sonja
Norwood, has assumed full
management responsibility under
the Norwood & Norwood banner.
Her personal travails provide
the principal fodder for
'Afrodisiac', which gives off
plenty of attitude, edginess,
sensuality and introspection.
And Brandy's sexy, provocative
pose on the June cover of Vibe
erases any doubt as to whether
she's all grown up.
But will people buy the
new Brandy?
Vibe editor in chief Mimi
Valdes contends Brandy won't
have trouble fitting in. "The
* cover isn't a marketing gimmick
but more about a young woman
who's evolving ... Even when
she started as a teen, it wasn't
about any gimmick or novelty.
It was always about the music."
Musically, Brandy's
evolution is reflected in her
choice of producers. Missy

sold 2.1 inrulon units, according
to Nielsen SoundScan
Sophomore album 'Never Say
Ne\er' 11998) stands at 4.5
million units, followed by 'Full
-Moon' at 1.1 million.
'Afrodisiac' finds Brandy
focusing 100 per cent on her
musical career. Between 1996
and 2001, she split her time
between music and TV show
'Moesha'.
"This will be the first time
we have had Brandy's undivided
attention," Atlantic co-chairman
Craig Kallman says.
The singer has already
travelled to Europe in;
advance or the album's late-
June release there. She will
return overseas in early July
following an extensive U.S.
promotion tour.
For the past month Brandy
has visited retail and radio on a
cross-country sweep covering
12 major markets. In addition to
serving as a presenter at the
BET Awards on the album's
street date, she has upcoming
appearances on 'The Tonight
Show With Jay Leno', 'Total
Request Live'. 'Today', 'The
View' and MTV's 'Beach
House'. Brandy is also the artist
of the month for AOL (June)
and launch.com (July).
Brandy hopes people will
accept her musical transition.
"I'm not trying to be edgy,
sassy, romantic, vulnerable or
whatever emotions come
across," she says. "I really am
all that."


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -
Teen actress Mary-Kate
Olsen, who with her twin
sister Ashley hal grown into
an American pop icon and
fashion brand, has entered a
programme for treatment of
an eating disorder reported to
-be anorexia.
The 18-year-old co-star
of last month's film 'New
York Minute' recently
"entered a treatment facility
to seek professional help-for
a health-related issue,"
publicist Michael Pagnotta
said on Tuesday.
"She is thankful for the
encouragement and support of
her friends and family, who are
with her every step of the way,"
he added.
A person familiar with the
situation told Reuters that
Olsen was suffering from an
eating disorder. Olsen


entered a facility during the
past week or 10 days and was
expected to remain in
treatment for about a month,
the person said.
Us Weekly magazine, in the
cover story of its upcoming
issue, identified the disorder as
anorexia.
Speculation about Olsen's
rail-thin figure has been the
subject of tabloids, gossip
columns and the Internet for
weeks. The actress herself
poked fun at the issue during
the twins' recent appearance on
'Saturday Night Live', shouting
to an extra playing herself,
"You're too skinny! Eat a
sandwich!"
Pagnotta said both sisters,
who turned 18 on June 13,
were going ahead with plans
to- attend New York
University together in the
fall.

Elliott's main man
Timbaland assumed the
production reins from
longtime Brandy collaborator
Rodney Jerkins. Other
contributors include Kanye
West and Organized Noize.
"I really didn't want to
concentrate on being so
technical this time," Brandy
says. "I just wanted to sing my
heart out and connect with
people.
"With this album I explore
my versatility. I knew
Timbaland would bring that
edge, that nastiness that I never
had before. I wasn't old enough
or mature enough before to get
into people's hearts. Now I am.'
The first single is the West-
produced 'Talk About Our
Love'. It is gaining chart
momentum, thanks to several
dance remixes by One Rascal
and other producers. Atlantic is
distributing double 12-inch
promo and retail versions. It is
currently No. 39 on The
Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
Still, an R&B buyer for a
major national chain says
'Afrodisiac' faces stiff
competition from highly
anticipated June releases by G-
Unit member Lloyd Banks and
Jadakiss. "I'm not hearing a lot of
people clamouring for Brandy's
album," the buyer says.

COMMITTED TO MUSIC
Brandy was 15 when her
first Atlantic album came out in
1994. The self-titled set has
