were armed with handguns, held up the five unarmed security
guards on duty at the business entity at about 04:00 h yester-

Justice or a Police Commissioner within CARICOM it is quite
understandable why at least Khan's mother, Gloria Kissoon,
should be crying aloud for "justice" and respect for her son's
human rights, as she held placards aloft on Friday before
Suriname's embassy in Washington. (See yesterday's Chronicle).
In the interest of fair trial, to ensure that justice is not in
way manipulated in the cases of Roger Khan and that of three
other Guyanese nationals, currently in custody in Suriname, hu-
man rights organizations like Amnesty International and Human
Rights Watch of America should consider having a presence for
the comiilg court trials.

Havelock Brewster's challengsings alternative

T'he culture of Sur-inamec's justice system seems to enable
its top officials of' legal affairs, to go public with any kind of
allegations including "intention to assassinate", as in the cur-
recnt case involving Roger Khan even before being charged with
specific offences and placed before a court in that country which
is also a member state of the Caribbean Community, and com-
mitted to the rule of law.
However passionate one feels about the alleged crimes of
Khan here in Guyana or in Suriname it is simply bizarre to
follow the sweeping claims of Justice Minister Santokhi in par-
ticular, according to heavy doses of his comments published in
the 'de Ware Tiljd' newspaper and reported locally, including
by the Chronicle.
Suriname and Guyana have very good reasons to pursue
the most practical forms of cooperation, in every sector, in-
cluding crime and security as well as justice administration. They
are, after all, vulnerable to notorious cross-border crimes.
Guyana has never had to deal with a case with all the im-
plications, including extradition to the USA, as presented by
that of Roger Khan for the Surinamese authorities. .
Suriname, on the other hand, has the unenviable precedent
of a former anny commander and President of the Republic,
successfully avoiding extradition requests, including that from
the country's ex-coloniser, Holland, on criminal charges,

THE CULT'URE of our system of justice is that every ac-
cused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. It is
a system that recognizes the importance of due process,
whatever the nature of the crime. -
The jail-them quickly, hang-themn quickly crowd mlay not
appreciate this, although they would otherwise claiml to be sup-
portive of a democracy based on the rule of law.
This personal observation is made today in view of current
sensational claims of criminality against the controversial
Guyanese businessman, Roger Khan, by the Justice Minister
of Suriname, Chandrikapersad Santokhi and, to a lesser extent,
the country's Prosecutor-General, Subhas Punwasi.
The allegations against Khan, whose extradition to face
narco-trafficking charges is also being sought by United States
authorities, run the gamut of sensational allegations, from tral-
ficking in guns and drugs to `'planning and ordering"' acts of
assassination of unnamed Surinaumese, according to the Justice
Minister of that former Dutch colony-

BANKS are nlot institutions
that normally attract praise
for their good work. But, thle
Caribbean Development
Bank (CDB) is an exception.
The CDB was born in
stormy circumstances in
January 1970 after considerable
debate and rancour among
governments of the Caribbean.
The smaller Leeward and
Windward Islands had laid
down, as conditions for joining
the Caribbean Free Trade
Association (CARIFTA) in
1968, the creation of the Bank
and their priority access to its
funding. They had also argued
for its headquarters to be
located in StVincent.
CARIFTA was an
economic integration grouping
of the Leeward and Windward
Islands with Belize, Barbados,
Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad
and Tobago. It was the
predecessor organisation of the
present Caribbean Community
Jamaica hard also wanted
the CDB's headquarters, and
the then Minister of Finance,
Edward Seaga, had pushed
strongly for it. In the end -

criticisedr by giovernmlents of the
less developed countries.
TIhe leaders of somec of
these countries, at the time, felt
that all that was necessary to get
funding was a letter of request
to the CDB's President, and
they were impatient with the
necessity for projects to be
evaluated for their viability.
Yet, it is the CDB's
professionalism in adhering to
the rules of project appraisal
and evaluation that has allowed
it to become respected and to
attract financing from larger
institutions, such as the World
Bank, for on-lending to its
borrowing countries.
The bank raises funds
through the issuance of debt
securities to institutional and
retail investors as well as lines
of credit from international
financial institutions.
SHad the CDB not insisted
on sticking to international best
practices in evaluating and
approving loans, it would have

But, the amount of timne
and resources necessary to
conclude a transaction for a hirge
project is almost the same for a
small one. Therefore, funding
small projects is an expensive
exercise both for the lender and
the borrowing country, and the
large financial institutions have
shied away from it.
Consequently, a smaller
development bank -
dedicated to the needs of
small countries is crucially
important to the countries of
the Caribb~ean, and if the
CDB did not exist today it
would have had to becreated.
As an example of the
importance of the Bank ~to its
borrowing countries, after the
devastation of Grenada by
Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and the
further damage by Hurricane
Emily in 2005, the CDB played
a major role in financing the

.was started by Barbados,
Belize, Guyana, Jamaica,

The CDB proves that,
once Caribbean
institutions adhere to
international standards
and best practices, they can
gain international respect
while fulfilling their
obligations to the
countries for whose benefit

(Responses to:

Orwell in his writing (1984) strikes a fearful note in the loss
of Bdentity because of modern technocracy. The age of tech-
nology has created numerous awareness and choices to the
point of identity confusion.
Characteristic features of identity formation are a child and his
family name, gender, his religion and culture, later his career and
family. A child's name is uniquely his. To.him it is the sweetest
sound. He may be given nicknames with which he identifies. He is
told to be proud of family names, history and tradition. A family
lives through its children. For many families a child is an extension
of the family and its values. Birth order creates an identity with
family positions as "first born" or "last born". This is so because
in early years we develop all types of values from parents and sib-
ling. Sufch values, attitudes and behaviours are crucial for identity
formation. Some children feel they were born by accident or that
they are.not liked for one reason or another. Children born "out of
wedlock" of "illegitimacy" have a special problem as these terms'
hang over their heads and may cause life-long guilt and anxiety. Some
children become aware that they arrived at an inconvenient time in
the married life of their parents. Foster children grow up with a
greater degree of ambivalence.
Gender identity formation is a critical factor in overall identity
development. "Anatomy is destiny" we are told. A woman is born
to bear children and there is pressure to have children and to have
them within wedlock. Long before birth the mother may go out to
buy a pink blanket and father goes out to buy a cricket bat a
stereotype, but a gender bias no less. At about age five or six the
child knows, "I am a boy", "I am a girl". One has short hair and
the other has long hair, one has ear-rings, the other does not. The
types of clothing is different, even the colour of such clothing. This
becomes pronounced in the media and what is portrayed therein.
On the television commercials, mother sells dish-washing liquid, fa-
ther goes to work with a briefcase and mother says "goodbye" while
holding baby. In school, this gender identity is further reinforced.
Boys sit separately from girls. In the children's books, the man as
a doctor or carpenter, the woman is a nurse or nursery school
teacher. In marriage, there must be a man and a woman. A man and
a manl or woman and a woman in marriage is non-acceptable by
most and even repulsive to others.
Children grow up establishing basic religious and moral values
as their political and social ideas. Relatively few individuals cross
the religious isle away from their parents. They date and even
marry within their own religious denominations. This continues the
family values and gender stereotypes. While in teenage years or in
college they are prone to question and challenge parental beliefs.
few leave to join other religious groups. The religious cults of the
1960s and 1970s caused much uneasiness among parents. Numer-
ous felt their children were kidnapped and programmed into these
cult beliefs.
Cults, however, were the exceptions rather than the rule
or norm. Even those who did not attend church found that they
wanted to get married in church with full religious regalia.
In times of deaths they wanted their parents to.be buried with

THERE are several aspects of a child's growth that account
for his total personality development physiological, social,
mental, emotional and mor~al.Each of these interacts dynami-
cally to affect healthy or unhealkiy' growth and developsilent.
In terms of stage-wise development the physiological iti first
followed by emotional, social, mental and moral.
As the child grows he moves from thie self (ego-centric) to the
social (socio-centric) as he relates to others. The development of
the self as it relates to all aspects of the self (intra-personal) is
crucial as it is central to all other rispects of. growth. The develop-
ment-of the self is the real self and the ideal self. It is the stage-
wise process gradually expanding ~to greater self-awareness and self
development. In all of these there is a unifying force or identity.
Identity is defined as "sameness". The word comes from Latin
idem which means "same". When a child identifies with his mother,
father or anyone, he feels or tries to feel, think and act or attempt
to act the same as that person. Teenagers who identify with movie
stars or sports personalities imitate these celebrities in clothing and
speech and behaviour. They want to know what they eat and what
they wear, what are their likes and dislikes. It is for this reason
that celebrities are discouraged from advertising alcohol or cigarettes
because they may imitate these socially disapproved behaviour.
They could easily fall victims to these vices. The Compact Edition
of the Oxford English Dictionary (1971) defines identity as "to con-
sider, regard or treat as the same", "to make one in interest, prin-
ciple, action, etc with; to associate inseparably", "the quality or
condition of being the same in substance, composition, nature, im-
portance or in particular qualities under consideration; absolute or
essential sameness". The individual is made to feel oneness with
himself as he feels with others. The real and the ideal need not be
the same because the ideal self provides the real with a goal; a mo-
tive to grow. On the other hand, if the real is too far from the
ideal, it makes fo- - ulnhenithy and unrealistic self or personality.
Theorists stal,_ - --'. the Psychoanalyst, see iden-
tity in terms of sexual development ,, P.. ntifieS *' :~
mother (Oedipus Complex) or the girl with her father (Electra Loull-
plex). Later, the boy will shift to his father and adopt thoughts,
feelings and behaviour and wants to be like his daddy or daddy
figure, tough and strong. In teenage years, he may move on to movie
stars, sports heroes, etc. Similarly, a girl will identify with her
mother and her feminine qualities, then to mnovic actresses and other

female celebrities.
Erik Erikson sees identity as a series of crises each one con-
tributing to a total development, as a spiral reaching upward begin-
ning with the present. "I am what I am and that's what I am" (Car-
toon Popeye) and "What I feel". "What I experience here and
now". Carl Rogers, the Humanist, sees the unifying force as bio-
logical and social. Abraham Maslow thought of identity in terms
of long range creativity of the individual, using such terms such as
"self-actualisation" and "self-realisation". The Existentialism of Eric
Fromm, 'Escape from Freedom' is more experiential and emphasises
the importance of "here and now". The Behaviourist such as B. F.
Skinner sees the self as developed through learning, conditioning or
shaping from external forces in the environment; what is rewarded
or punished. The Cognitive psy-
chologists see identity as thinking
and mental processes as unifying
the various elements of the per-
sonality; thinking and reaching out :
to the social and emotional self. a

ing with age and the environ-
ment. There are a series of forces impinging upon the devel-
opment. Physiological growth is influenced by genetic and
health factors; socially with parents, peers and community.
These forces become more dramatic during teenage years when
body awareness and peers play a dominant role in identity de-
velopment. Children from minority groups or lower-income
families find these times especially trying because they find
themselves in the margin of society and not the mainstream.
Over time, factors influencing identity development will
change. In times past, children themselves were allowed to
grow only into the mould of the family. This identity is more
"' than "Ldeveloped" because the freedom to evolve
.any unliqueness is limited. Such examples abound in religious
fundamentalism. To a great extent, this is still true in rural
Guyana. This has been suggested as a possible cause for fe-
male teenage suicide. The growth of gender and race aware-
ness has further brought pressure on the teenager. This is why
Erickson calls it the age of Identity and Role Confulsion. George

Partly because North

Japanese government that is de-
termined to commit Japan to
much closer military coopera-
tion with the United States, but
must persuade a reluctant popu-

the United States, because they
are a much more tactful justifi-

beloved ballistic missile defence

ally meant to intercept.
And above all, North
Korea's rockets are not re-

Korea may or may not have

might be able to deliver them

WHEN I was a little boy, and
I knew that I was being
watched, I would sometimes
put on a show for thle hidden
audience generally by acting
in ways that I thought were
tough and dangerous with-
out ever letting on that I knew
the observers were there. And
that's exactly the relationship
that the North Korean regime
has with the U.S. satellite
cameras that are almost con-
stantly overhead.
This time, it's a rocket: a
great big two-stage Taepodlong
2 rocket that has been erected
on its launch pad at the
Musudan-ri base in north-east-
ern North Korea. Pyongyang
has not said anything officially
about ending the moratorium on
rocket launches that it voluntar-
ily imposed on itself in 1999,
shortly after test-firing a
shorter-range missile across Ja-
pan into the Pacific, but it ap-
pears to be fuelling the rocket.
The American spy satellites
picked up all the activity, of
course, and now the U.S. gov-
ernment is having an entirely
predictable fit. Test-firing this
new, longer-range missile "would
once again show North Korea
determined to deepen its isola-
tion, determined not to take a
path that is the path of compro-
mise and a path of peace, but
rather instead to once again sa-
ber-rattle," warned U.S. Secre-
tary of State Condoleezza Rice.
"It would be a very serious
matter indeed."
That is presumably what

Kimn Jong-il's recgimne wantedl her
to say, since the whole point of
the exercise is to stir up anxi-
ety among North Korea's
neighbours anld m1ore distanlt ld-
versar~ies andl force them back to
the bargaining table. Pyongyang
needs a deal that brings in for-
eign food. fulel anld cash if the
regime is to survive, and the
only thing it has to trade is a
promise to stop looking so dan-
gerous. Which means that until
it gets the deal, it must go on
looking dangerous.
The "six-party talks"
(North Korea, South Korea,
China, Russia, Japan and the
United States) is where the
deal would be made, and
those talks only came into
existence because of panic
about North Korea's alleged
nuclear weapons. ("Alleged",
because although Pyongyang
officially claims to have
nukes, it might well be
bluffing.) But the talks have
been stalled for the past six
months because the United
States has imposed financial
sanctions against the North
Korean government in
retaliation for its
counterfeiting of U.S. dollars.
Governments rarely admit
their crimes and apologise;
North Korea never does. So
how can Pyongyang force ev-
erybody back to the six-party
table without admitting wrong-
doing, and get some aid and se-
curity guarantees out of
them? By looking dangerous
again, of course. But an actual

Alaska.) If Pyongyang ever
did attempt to fire a nuclear
weapon at South Korea or Ja-
pan, it would be reduced to
radioactive cinders by the
U.S. retaliation within hours.
When North Korea origi-
nally set out down the road to-
wards nuclear weapons and
long-range rockets at least a de-
cade ago, it was undoubtedly
seeking the ability to deter an
attack against it by much more
powerful potential enemies:
South Korea, Japan or the
United States.
It has now more or less
achieved that deterrence, and
apart from some questions
about the credibility of its
nuclear weapons claims, that
should be the end of the story.
Maybe it could be bribed to give
them up and come back under
the jurisdiction of the Non-Pro-
liferation Treaty, although that
would take a lot of foreign aid
and some very firm security
But in the meantime, the
North Korean "threat" serves

RESIDENTS of Felicity Vir-
lage Mahaicony are com-
plaining that a privately
owned concrete bridge which
rests in the middle of the
main drain in the
village is obstructing drain-
age of their residential and
agricultural lands and caus-
ing them to lose their crops.
They told the Sunday
Chronicle that their woes stem
from the manner of construction
of the bridge by one resident to
get access to his home on the
other side of the drain.
A spokesman said that in-
stead of building the bridge over
the drain, the proprietor built
the bridge in the drain itself then
he put three small tubes in the
structure it to allow the water
,to continue to flow.
"'So, the drain is blocked by
the bulk of the structure and

then we find that the tubes in-
serted in it are too small to
allow a satisfactory volume
through them and into the
Mahaicony River during peri-
ods of heavy rainfall," he said.
"TThis structure humbugging
us; the water can't drain," the
spokesniian said.
Some residents said that
they had complained about
the situation to President
Jagdeo when he visited the
area recently and he had or-
dered that the structure be
destroyed but there had been
no action by any of the rel-
evant authorities since.
A spokesman said that one
consequence of the obstructed
drainage system is that several
acres of growing rice whose cul-
tivation had cost hundreds of
thousand of dollars, have been
submerged by water and have
been destroyed.
One farmer said that he had

The U.S. has requestedl
Suriname extradite Khan. The
U.S. had unsealed an indictment
against Khan for conspiring to
import cocaine an~d h~ad issued
a warrant for his arrest.
Khan, 35, who became a
controversial figure in Guyana
following his public state-
ments after the wanted bulle-
tin was issued and was named
in the 2006 U.S. narcotics re-
port as a known drug traf-
ficker, was arrested in
Paramaribo, where authorities
reportedly seized more than
200 kilograms of cocaine and
11 other suspects.
On Wednesday, Khan was
taken before an examining mag-
istrate in Paramaribo to hear
charges under very tight secu-
rity, which saw the office of the
exammmig magistrate before and
during the arraignment being
guarded by members of the
Suriname Police SWAT team

Khan was believed to have
been hiding out in Suriname
after the Police here put him
on a wanted list in connection
with the theft of 30 AK-47

On being toldl that reports
out of Surinumle clalim thate even
Guyanese Ambassador- hls been
denied a visit to Khaun, Lun-
chcon said he was not aware of
this and if indeed, it is the case,
then it "actually flies in the face
of the convention".
Dr Luncheon was on Friday
asked to explain what seems to
be contradiction in statement
by Home Affairs Minister Gail
Teixeira on Wednesday that the
Guyana Government has "no
interest" at this point in time,
in extraditing Khan and the
three other Guyanese held with
him in Suriname last week even
though the government has been
spending millions of dollars re-
cently trying to track down the
fugitive businessman in
The decision by the
Guyana Government was com-
municated by the minister to
her Suriname counterpart, Jus-
tice Minister Chandrikapersad
Santokhi who also on Wednes-
day told Suriname journalists
attending his weekly Cabinet
meeting of the discussion he had
with Teixeira and the Guyana
Government's decision which
gives Suriname more leeway to

consider the formanl United

gitive businessman being sent
back here from Suriname.
Luncheon on Friday sought
also to clarify Teixeira's state-
ment which he said might have
been misinterpreted, and should
be taken in the context that
there was no substantial evi-
dence or information to success-
fully prosecute Khan in
Guyana, compared to that
found in Suriname.
Questioned too, as to why
the Guyana Government did
not move to investigate or
prosecute Khan based on what
was stated in the U.S. 2006
narcotics report that Khan was
a known drugs dealer, Lun-
cheon said "declarations by for-
eign governments and foreign
parties, or anyone for that mat-
ter, are quite limited in terms
of their contributions to pros-
ecution and therefore, even
though the spectre has been out
there for quite some time,

said "it brings into issue the

thart was issuedl for Khan alnd
"Was it properly issued if
no evidence is available," he
asked, while adding "the ques-
tion now is: what was the real
motive for issuing the wanted
bulletin when you do not have
sufficient evidence to show?
"Citizens must now ask
whether what arises is to
criminalise a person without
evidence," Puran added.
He said he has not been in
contact with Khan's mother

who p'icketed theL Surinamell Eni-

When he wa~s askedl Fridny
whether the Guyana Govern-
ment will intervene at somne

lated in Suriname, in not being

his lawyers, Cabinet Secretary,
Dr. Roger Luncheon said: "I
do know that the convention
surrounding the support by
(diplomatic) missions in for-
eign countries for providing
whatever form of support to
nationals who run afoul of the
law in those countries...is
fairly well established and in-
deed, you might be aware, it
has been resorted to in En-

other countries where repre-
sentatives of the Government
of Guyana have indeed been
involved in providing various
levels of support to Guyanese
who have fallen victims or

"I would want to believe
that Khan's lawyers are aware
of this convention and may have
been dealing with the represen-
tatives of the Government of
Guyana in Suriname to provide
that kind of support," Lun-
cheon offered.
He added that it is usual for
representatives of the mission to
seek access to prisoners or

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Patsy Ramsey, the mother of slain
child beauty queen JonBenet Ramusey, died yesterday from can-
cer in Atlanta, the family's attorney told CNN.
Raunsey's husband, John. was at her side when she died at about
3:30 am, attorney L. Lin Wood told the cable network. Ramsey,
49, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1993, underwent treat-
ment and lived cancer-free for nine years, Wood said. Three years
ago she suffered a recurrence. he said.
JonBenet, 6. was found beaten and strangled in the family's
Boulder, Colorado, home on Decemnber 26, 1996, in a case that re-
mains unsolved. Her parents came under the Boulder police's "um-
brella of suspicion," but a grand jury issued no indictments.
The slaying drew intense media coverage focusing on JonBenet's
success in youth beauty pageants, the family's affiuence and mys-
terious elements of the case, including a note that initially led po-
lice to believe the girl had been kidnapped.
"O~ver the last two, three years they have come to under-
stand there's been a shift in public opinion about the death of
JonBenet and people realise now that this family was very
much victims of that murder and have suffered because of it
in terms of the false accusations made against them," Wood

SYDNEY (Reuters) One in four Australian parents regularly
"borrow" money from their children's piggy banks to pay for
anything from bread to luxury holidays, a survey said last
week. ,
Mums are more than twice as likely to raid their children s
savings than dad, with 35 per cent of mothers confessing to the
crime compared with 16 per cent of fathers.
But almost nine out of 10 still believed they were setting a good
example of financial management for their tiny tycoons.
Fund management firm Bankwest surveyed almost 400 parents
or guardians of children aged 17 or under.

of retail deposits, told Reuters.

Of those who admitted to raiding piggy banks, more than half
said they used the money to buy essentials such as petrol, milk
and bread.
Another 20 per cent said they needed the money to pay off
water and electricity bills and other utilities: But 16 per cent put
their children's savings toward such extravagances as holidays or
new cars.
The survey follows Reserve Bank of Australia findings that
many Australians spent more than they earned in the past
three years. On average, Australians saved only 2.9 per cent
of their annual income.

amounts paid in the best three (3) years of the last five (5)
years so that the maximum amount of a pension that could
have been paid in any year can be easily determined.
Those maximum amounts are shown in column 6 of the

As would be seen from the table the maximum that a
pensioner could have received in 1993 was $4,573. That
amount has been increasing over the years, and the
maximum that would be achievable in October, 2006 will
be $56,105.

Since in 1986 there was in existence an amount below
which an Old Age pension cannot be paid i.e. the minimum
pension. In that year the minimum was fixed at 40% of the
minimum wage in the publiciservice.. That minimum was
later change to approximately 50% of the minimum wage
in the Public Service.

The present minimum wage in the Public Service is
$24,828 per month.

Since the minimum pension is tied to the minimum wage in
the Public Service and that minimum wage moves in
accordance with increases announced by the Govemnment
annually the minimum pension undergoes annual

The pensions in payment at the beginning of a year are
usually subject to an increase that is determined by the
National Insurance Board. Those increases when applied
move a pension amount to a given level. However if that
movement is less than the n;ovement in the minimum
pension then the awarded pension may be swallowed by
the minimum pension. A person therefore who was earning
a pension that was above the minimum in year 1 might be
at the minimum level in year 2 simply because of the
difference in the degree of the movements in the two

This will be explained further in a subsequent article.

As would be seen also from the table the 60% maximum of
insured earning has already been reached.

Increases therefore in the amount of pensions in the
coming years wouldl'be as a result of increases in the
insurable earnings ceiling, and the annual increases that
would be made by the National Insurance Board from time
to time.

The calculation of pensions was explained in a previous -

The method of calculation has as its main parameters:-

(1) the average insurable earnings, and

(2) the percentage to be applied to the average insurable

As was explained in the previous article the average
insurable earnings is arrived at by using the best three (3)
Years in the last five (5) years during which contributions
were paid immediately prior to the date the person
attained 60 years.

The insurable earnings of those three (3) years are added
and the total is divided by three (3) to arrive at the average
insurable earnings.

The percentage of the insurable earnings is arrived at by
Staking the number of contributions paid by the insured
person and allotting for the first 750 contributions 40% and
each additional complete group of 50 contributions, 1%.
'That percentage is subject to a maximum of 60%.

SUsing an average of 50 contributions per year the 750
contributions would be equal to approximately fifteen (15)
years payment. If for every additional 1%, 50 contributions
are required then` for an award of 20% the number of
Contributions required is 1,000. The maximum percentage
would be reached with 1,750 contributions or
approximately thirty-five (35) years payment.

The Insurable Earning Ceiling is defined as the amount of
Sthe person's earnings that is insured and on which
contributions are paid,

The amount of earnings that is insured changes from time
to time and is directly related to the minimum wage in the
Public Service. The relationship is approximately four (4)
times that minimum wage.

During the early years of the Scheme's existence the'
Insurable Earnings Ceiling remained very low.

In 1989 the insurable earnings ceiling was moved to
$1,500.00 per month and from thereon there were
increases sortie of which were awarded three (3) times in
one (1) year. The insurable earnings ceilings which were in
existence at the end of each of the years 1991 to 2006 are
given below in column 2 of the table.

Since contributions could be paid on earnings only up to
the level of the ceiling the persons earning above the
ceiling could pay contributions only on the ceiling.


The amount of the pension is directly related to the

Jamaica, in 2005, was producing
300 tons of honey a year.
But in Guyana, he says
the industry is not thriving,
but it can become a viable sec-
tor of the economy.
Region Seven alone, where
he works to train bee-keepers,
can produce more than double
the amount of honey produced
by Jamaica.
He says the amount of
honey one can get from a hive
depends on the weather and veg-
etation. With Guyana's lush
pristine rainforest, he says, this
country is ideal to market honey
at the standard demanded by the
international community.
Because of vast vegetation,
he says Guyana produces the
best quality honey.
In terms of international
standards, he says the world
market is asking for no more
than 18 per cent moisture con-
tent. He says that can be
achieved in Guyana, without
having to pasteurise the honey
like other countries do to achieve
the desired quality.
While his some 80 hives on
the Soesdyke/Linden highway
gives him honey of 21.5 per cent
moisture content, he says the
last testing conducted in region
seven showed a moisture con-
tent of 17.5 per cent more than
what is expected internationally.
The amount of moisture in

honey is determined by the bees,
He says since bees work at first
light, when they collect nectar,
they also collect dew drops. When
they return to the hive and spew
it out (as honey) to store for pe-
riods of bad weather when they
cannot work, the dew drops
comes out as well and that is what
gives honey its moisture coritent.
From a hive, Stewart says he
could get as much as four gallons
of honey fromm one e~xtractionr ev-
ery six weeks.
Stewart says a number of
initiatives are needed if bexwkeep-
ing can reach its potential here.
He says because of the lack
of modern technology, bee-keep-
ing is on back-burner.
"We cannot get bee-keeping
equipment like bee suits. We
have to make 'overalls'. We can-
not get honey extractors or
smokers, we have to import and
these are very costly," he says.
He says if the industry were
allowed to thrive locally, then the
equipment could become avail-
able here and at a competitive

Amin K~leyious Nkossi Britton
to pursue his childhood
dream of a career in music.
`When one considers that
Britton is blind, the scenario
changes not so stibtly and the
`challenges are immediately
thrown into relief. He is
rising admirably to them,
however, and is on the verge
of recording his first single
'Robbing and stealing from
the poor'.
The Sunday Chronicle
caught up with Prince Amin, as
he is familiarly called, at the
' Atlantic Ville home of another
differently able person, Edgar
Neil Smith,

"When this is done, it will
be quite an accomplishment,"
SPrince Amin said. He gave credit
to the management of Swansea
and their newly launched
recording studio, Brutal Tracks,
located on Waterloo Street for
recognizing his potential and
immdiately offering to assist.
With role models such as
blind singers, Stevie Wonder,
Clarence Carter and Ray
Charles, and with friends like
Rohan and Amanda Peters, who
have added their voices to his
single, Prince Amin is motivated
to release an entire album called
'Prophesy'. He however needs
a manager to assist him to
promote and market his music.
Prince Amin, the second of
nine children, was born with
glaucoma. In spite of surgeries in
London and other efforts to stem
the onset of blindness, he was

in front of the class did not help

arrangements to send him to
Trinidad. But misfortune
struck. The school which
specialised in the teachlag of

Kidman to wed

By Michael Perry
SYDNEY (Reuters) Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman
said yesterday she planned to get a good night's sleep be-
fo~re today's wedding to country singer Keith Urban .in
Sydney, while Urban is reportedly having a buck's night
As preparations for the wedding were finalised, Sydney
media speculated that 'Moulin Rouge' director Baz Luhrmann,
ai long-timne friend of Kidman's, would shoot the wedding video.
Kidman and Urban are to be married today but details of
the wedding have been kept under wraps all week as guests
such as King Kong star Naomi Watts and Luhrmann jetted into

Asked what she was planning to do last night, Kidman re-

Luhrmann, who will attend the wedding with his film
producer wife Catherine Martin, met Kidman and Urban
on Friday night, sparking media speculation he would be
involved in "creative direction," which would include the
wedding video.
"I am very happy to be going along to a happy occasion,"
was all a smiling Luhrmann would say to reporters after meet-
ing the couple and the wedding party at Kidman's family home
in Sydney. Kidman told reporters that Luhrmann was "part of

Today's wedding is expected to take place at the Cardinal
Cerretti Memorial Chapel, a gothic-style sandstone church in-
side an old Catholic seminary overlooking Manly Beach.
While the location is secret, a big marquee erected near the
chapel seemed to be a dead give-away, along with the fact that
Catholic priest Paul Coleman, who will conduct the service,
comes from a parish a few suburbs away.
'To Nicole & Keith, congratulations from the boys at
St Paul's', read a sign outside a school opposite the chapel.

period of ca mpaig n ing, equitable coverage in
all election-related news reports and articles.
The media will aim to ensure that the

(proportionate to its size and prominence)
are presented to the electorate to enable
them to make their choice at the ballot box.

SDealing with complaints.
1) The media undertakes to respond promptly
and responsibly to any complaints received
in respect of reports published or broadcast
and containing errors of fact, and where, in its
opinion, these are justified to publish or
broadcast appropriate corrections.
2) In certain circumstances it may be
appropriate to provide the opportunity to
reply. If a correction or an opportunity to
reply is thought necessary by the editor or
media manager, the media agree that it be
placed in an equally prominent position to
the original error.
3) All complaints received will be passed for
information and assessment to the GECOM

Media Refereeing Panel.

Fairness and Balance. The Media, in
accepting the principle .o "fair and
balanced" reporting in pursuit of the truth,
recognizes that:
1) No story is fair, if it includes essentially
irrelevant information, rumor or
un substantiated statements at the
expense of significant facts;
2) No story is fair, if it consciously or
unconsciously misleads or even deceives
Sthe reader, listener or viewer.
3) No balance exists in a series of political
Interviews if any party is favoured in the
Degree of probing questioning. Giving an
; "easy ride" selectively is unfair.
Accuracy and thoroughness. The Media
acknowledges that these two main
characteristics, accuracy and balance, seek
to distinguish good journalism from bad, and
jourpalism from propaganda. From this
perspective, we accept that:
1) Accuracy requires the verification (to the
fullest extent possible) and presentation
of all facts that are pertinent and
necessary to understand a particular
event or issue, even if some of the facts
conflict with a journalist's, or a
broadcaster's particular beliefs and
2) Good journalism involves positive news
gathering, not just waiting for it to arrive in
the "In" tray. To that end, the media
accepts the need to make a determined
effort to draw in information about the
activities of smaller, poorer parties in
order to provide the readers, listeners and
viewers with the full range of voting
options open to them.
3) News and comments must be clearly
identified to avoid confusion amongst
readers, viewers and listeners.

"Our primary concern is to
make birth as normal as possible

The Royal College of

(From back pae)
positive intent, but instead the game, as a contest, was killed.
If you only read the scorecard you might think it unkind to
be critical of West Indies for their approach. But, after beginning
on 420 for 5, with Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Marlon Samuels
well set and easily able to score 96 runs off the first 23 overs
bowled in the day, it was impossible to assign reasons for the
manner in which they saw off the next 14 overs for just 20 runs,
Harbhajan Singh, who was brutalised by Chris Gayle,
sent down six overs for just three runs in this period. There
was plenty of verbal jousting on the field, as Harbhajan sent
down one wide delivery after another, watched Chanderpaul
refuse to take the bait, and then mockingly applauded when
a single was taken.
It might have seemed like a bit of good-natured fun to some
of the players, but the manner in which bbth teams West Indies
in the most, and India to some extent refused to force the pace,
left a bad taste in the mouth. Why Rahul Dravid did not bring the
field in to cut the single when Chanderpaul was batting so
obviously with one eye to his hundred, and perhaps the
declaration depended on this is a question worth asking. Equally,
it was mystifying to see AbilKumble operate so much from the
end Brian Jerling was offi~iating when it was amply clear that he
would not uphold even the nost genuine appeal for lbw.
While all,this was unfolding, Chanderpaul and Samuels helped
themselves to half-centuri .:
There wasn't much of contest in the popularity stakes here.
Samuels was commandingrauthoritative and full of verve when
he chose to be while C3l derpaul was at his crabby best -
incredibly efficient atke~eping the ball out, judiciously forthcoming
when the loose ball carpe along, and unapologetically restrained
when the ball did not demand a stroke. Whien lunch was taken,
West Indies had added 114)6 runs from 37 overs, not what you
expect from a team that's eying to force the pace.
Sof t -after lunch tihafaynmark mn thea TSm term
clattered Harbhajan for ai rocket of a flat six back over his
head and followed it up with a sweet strike over long-on.
Energised by this effori Chanderpaul made it three big ones
in the over, timing one ofer extra-cover. But it was not to last
long as Samuels, who hadmade 87, holed out to Harbhajan at
midwicket against a Virettde'r Sehwag offbreak.
With Samuels gone there was little to loofforward to in
the innings but Chainderp~l!aul's hundred, and as is so often
the case, this was tb% one thing that. eluded. When
Chanderpaul had thetchance to force thel'pace. in the first
session and the starit- of the second ~- he failed to, and
suddenly it wras too late: Denesh Ramdin,-looking to up the
scoring rate, found ~qizar-leg.
The West Indian tail dien did what it does best, surrendering
abjectly to a spinner they cbuld not pick. i'o Harbhajan's delight
a terrible innings' retunisira~nsformed into a respectable if barely
earned five-wick~et ha ;West Indies were all out for 581,
Chanderpaul was unbeaite on 97, visibly disappointed but with
no-one to blame but~himsland India were left with 51 overs to
And play they dhl, wag was his usual self and Wasim
Jaffer remarkable 'rSiglbehind the ball and working his
wrists like VVS Iaxmiahki '
A brisk spell from 'Tist Indies' opening bowlers, where
Jerome Taylor was notic~ealy; sharp and bent his back to get some
sharp pace and bourite, dilrot hamper Jaffer and Sehwag from
bringigu the fifty 0pinsi off jst 57 balls: When Sehwag
was out, fishing outside off against Corey Collymore and edging
to slip, the tempo of the, radian innings dropped.' But only just,
as Jaffer and Laxmai~rpresshkd :o n
Laxman, under a bitof pressure for want of a big score,
was understated in.his strokeplay. Ironically; the normally
reticent Jaffer was'unusually expressive,~ square-driving,
pulling and even flicking` titrough midwicket for boundaries.
One gregarious drive too litany landed in Lara's lap at slip
off Dwayne Bravo viia the Qutside edge and Jaffer was gone
for aweid jaded6 isod triend Laxman at the crease, as India
still trail by 431. But if fod went by West Indies' approach,
you would think it was tlpey who were playing catch-up.

champions Brazil in the
second round of their debut
World Cup but their ability to
work as a team could see
them through, coach Ratomir
Dujkovic said yesterday.
The Serbian coach told a
news conference ahead of
Tuesday's game he was proud
of` Ghana's achievements and
their campaign would not
necessarily end against Brazil as
experts predict.
"I believe in our guys. They
have the capability," he said
yesterday after they became
only the fifth African team to get
past the first round at a World
"It's very difficult to stop
them (Brazil). If you stop
Ronaldinho, there is Ronaldo. If
you stop Ronaldo there is
Roberto Carlos. If you stop
(him) there is Kafu so it will be
very difficult, very tough.
"(But) the (Brazilians)
are not doing so well as
before with all th~se stars.
They have excellent
individuality. But as a team
they are not playing so well
as before."
The South Americans
opened their campaign with two
unconvincing wins over Croatia
and Australia but looked far
sharper in a 4-1 win over Japan
in their third match.
In contrast, Ghana opened
their tournament with a 2-0
defeat by Italy before a marked
improvement saw them beat th~e
highly-rated Czech Republic 2-
0 and the United States 2-1 to
become the only African team
left in the second round.

"I'm very happy and proud
of my guys, how they played
and ... defended the country and
the continent," Dujkjovic said.
"These are historic results
because this is our first
appearance in the World Cup
and I believe we can do more in
the fu ,, .
The players have looked
relaxed in training since

"It means an awful lot to
me and I am sure I will be
excited when the game comes
around," he said. "It's so. special
to face a teamn like Brazil in the
World Cup-
"But there is nopressure on
us. We can be relaxed. We have
our own strengths so we have
to go out and enjoy the game."
Despite the euphoria
there was one note of

This has been revealed by

(CMC) -Out-of-favour
opener, Devon Smith has
been named in a 16-man West
Indies 'A' team squad to tour
England this summer.
The 24-year-old Smith has
not played for the West Indies
first team since November last
year despite travelling with the
team to New Zealand for the
three-Test tour in March earlier
this year.
He was overlooked for the
Indian tour as the West Indies
selectors opted for Daren Ganga
who responded to a run of low
scores in the first two Tests of
the current Home series with a
century on Friday.
Smith has played 16 Tests,
scoring 735 runs at an average
of 25.34.
The squad, captained by
Sylvester Joseph with Ryan Hinds
as the vice-captain, also includes
Irewani Islands batsman Runako
.Morton who, after a satisfactory
tour of New Zealand, is yet to.play
in the series against India.
Jamaican wicketkeeper
Carlton Baugh has been left out
after, apparently failing to
respond to a letter of invitation

issued by the West Indies
,Cricket Board.
He was one of two
glove men used in the 'A'
series against England in the
Caribbean earlier this year.
Patrick Browne will replace
him in the squad.
The squad will leave the
Caribbean on July 17 and will
play their first game against
Division One County side
Durham, a threec-day fixture at
the Riverside Ground in
They will play seven other
matches against County teams
and another against the touring
Pakistanis, before returning to
the Caribbean on August 21.

It is virtually two months

issue was said to be resolved
but W1PA president and
Chief Executive Officer
Dinanath Ramnarine
recently accused the WICB of
not being prepared "to move

strike action by the players
ahead of the third Test.
Barthley said, however,
that there had been long hours
of discussions and eventually
there would be "a very detailed
document which is going to
govern contractual issues of
West Indies cricket".
"There was some talk about
industrial action. What I want to
say with regards to contracts is
that we have spent a lot of long
hours; a lot of effort has gone
into discussions on contracts,
player contracts, player

with the best rebounds, the
most assists and the best

rewarded with a trophy.

NEU-ISENBURG, Germany, (Reuters) Referees are play-
mng their part in creating a free-flowing World Cup by fol-
lowing strict instructions from FIFA on foul play.
Russian referee Valentin Ivanov said a glut of red cards in
the tournament did not sigmify out of control players but re-
flected officials clamping down hard on transgressors.
The month-long extravaganza has so far produced 18 red
cards from 48 matches, fast approaching the record of 22 from
64 matches in the 1998 finals in France.
In two group stage matches Italy against the United
States and Croatia versus Australia three players were ex-
pelled from each game.
"If you speak about the tournament so far, the behaviour
of the players is ok I think," Ivanov told reporters yesterday
after a training session.
"Maybe because of these red cards it has not been a dirty
"FIFA wish to see football, not fighting, on the field of play.
That is why referees receive clear instructions, not because we
hate players, but because we try and protect players and the

Ivanov, who will take charge of the last 16 clash between
Portugal and Netherlands in Nuremberg today, said referees were
not being overly tough on players.
"No, we are not being hard. Our instructions were clear and
we have to follow them ... to be very strict in terms of tackles
and time-wasting."
Referees have been quick to brandish cards for diving and
Ivanov said officials had to remain vigilant.
"Diving is a very bad thing which players do very well some-
times," he said.
Slova2kian referee Lubos Michel believed players had got the
message loud and clear.
"T~he players understand now how far they can go, they
have got the message. Wle can be flexible with some small
things but not with the serious things."

For the first, Marquez was

steered the ball wide of the far

Mexico had the first chance
of the second half too but

normal time, but the goal
was ruled out for offside.

was end to end and we couldn't

match. Then it came with a shot

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) Celebrating
Argentines poured into the rain-wet avenues, screaming,
singing, dancing, blowing horns and setting off firecrackers
after their team secured a 2-1 World Cup win over Mexico
ythe a plosion of joy broke a tense two hours of silence -
when barely a car had moved through the streets as Mexico took
one of the tournament favourites into extra time.
Ambulances drove past with sirens wailing, to join the festivities
after a victory which sets up a match with hosts Germany in the
quarter-final in Berlin next Friday.
"Spectacular. It was the best game. Mexico doesn't exist~,"
said Emanuel Wyberg, 24, a clothing shop employee banging
on an empty five-gallon water jug in celebration.
Asked whether he gave up hope during the game he said,
"Never, in every language, never."
"I did feel it was tough going, but now I'm feeling total
happiness," said Silvana Castro, 20, a cashier who also went out
into the street to celebrate.
Mexico had taken an early lead after only six minutes before
Argentina equalised four minutes later in the game played in the
eastern German city of Leipzig.
It took a spectacular goal by midfielder Maxi Rodriguez
eight minutes into extra time to settle one of the best games
of the tournament so far.

be available on DVDs, video

An Islamist revolt against
New Delhi's rule in the region
has killed tens of thousands of
people. It has also taken a toll
on the social and cultural I~ves
of Kashmiris.
Militants ordered cinemas,
liquor shops and beauty
parlours to be shut down, forc-
ing cable television with its
staple of song-and-dance
Bollywood films and music vid-
cos to become the main enter-
tainment across the region.

The scenic state was once
also a popular destination for
Indian film shoots. But the re-
volt ended Bollywood's ro-
mance with the region until a
few years ago when a trickle of
filmmakers began returning.

A lone cinema hall, a few
wine stores and dozens of
beauty parlors have also begun
operating in the region.
But no Kashmani had ven-
tured to make a film in the local
language since 'Habba
Khatoon', a true story about a
famous 14th-century Kashmiri
poetess queen which was re-
leased 39 years ao.
Local filmmakers say mak-
ing a movie in Kashmir is a dis-
tant dream and nothing substan-
tial had been done by authori-
ties to encourage Kashmiri cin-
ema, which has so far produced
only half a dozen features.
"Even before the (militant)
trouble began, it was difficult to
produce a Kashnunr feature film
because of the lack of finances,
infrastructure and lack of en-
couragement by the authorities,'

the culture and history of a
people who feel alienated from
the rest of India.

PAIN caused by treatment provided by a dentist who is per-
ceived as caring is likely to have less psychological impact
than pain from treatment by a dentist who is perceived as
being cold and controlling, according to a report in a re-
cent issue of the Journal of Dental Research.
The survey involves 6,630 residents of Etobicoke, one of
five municipalities within metropolitan Toronto. The survey
challenges the view that dental anxiety is the result of child-
hood trauma in a dental office. According to the survey, about
16 per cent of subjects said they were dentally anxious as mea-
sured against the following criteria: physiological responses dur-
ing dental treatment, such as increased breathing rate, increased
heart rate or nausea; avoidance of dental care; and fears about
the dentist-patient relationship including lack of control and
Researchers separated the dentally anxious into two catego-
ries: exogenous, meaning fear caused by conditioning; and en-
dogenous, fear caused by overall vulnerability to anxiety disor-
ders. They report only half of dentally anxious people became
so in childhood. One-fifth reported onset of dental fear in ado-
lescence and almost one-third reported onset in adulthood. Ac-
cording to the survey, most children who developed fear of the
dentist did so after a dental experience that caused pain, fear or
embarrassment. Roughly 55 per cent of fearful children also re-
prted they had family members who were fearful of the den-
In contrast, a majority of adults reported that frightening
experiences alone not painful or embarrassing experiences -
were enough to cause dental anxiety.
Pain, according to one definition, is suffering, either physi-
cal or mental; an impression on the sensory nerve causing dis-
tress or when extreme agony. The complexity analysis, diagno-
sis and treatment of the causes of this enigma are as real as
they have ever been. The subjective nature of pain makes it
even more elusive as a diagnostic aid and not compatible with
controlled experimental studies. In spite of this, it can be help-
ful in a general way in localising areas of pathology (disease).
Pain in and about the oral cavity seems to be much more
personal to the patient than any other part of the body. Many
of the authorities feel that it comes closest to a feeling of dan-
ger to "self". Many prominent men in the field of dentistry
have proposed magic formulas for the diagnosis of certain types
of dental pain. Unfortunately, most of these attempts have been
doomed to failure in the light of experimental evidence and clinical
practice. Nothing would be nicer for the busy dentist than to
have a calculator type of diagnostic instrument with which he
could quickly categorise all dental complaints, complete with
caus tis isteuse of the most commonly known form of
toothache. Pulpitis by definition infers inflammation of the pulp,
but not necessarily infection. However, we also know that it is
most often caused by serious cariouls exposure (decay). Painful
Pulpitis is obviously the type which brings the patient to the
dentist with the subjective complaint of pain. Besides carious
exposure, it may be caused by trauma (fractured tooth), me-
chanical exposure, severe erosion or abrasion and gingival re-
cession exposing an accessory canal.
Tooth decay is not always a painful process. In fact, for
some reason, possibly the very low grade chronicity, these teeth
do not offend the patient and are therefore not considered to be
pulpally involved. Some persons even have a mouth full of de-
composed teeth and have never experienced a toothache. Al-
though it is common within our culture, extraction as the logi-
cal solution for toothache is wrong. Instead of removing the or-
gan (tooth) which causes the pain, the right thing to do is to
remove the specific part of the organ that cause the palin. This
procedure is called emergency endodontics and it involves the
removal pl the pulp chamber. T'he comprehensive process is
called root canal treatment.
It is the general rule that every disease gets worse as time
passes. Dental caries always starts innlocuously. That is why
people usually visit the dentist only when they experience pain
and discomfort. Most times when aI tooth pains without being
stimulated (sweet, sour, cold etc) the disease process has al-
ready reached an advanced stage (acute Pulpitis). If the patients
is more than 17 years old. it is very likely that the vital part
(pulp) of the tooth would be lost.
I would not condemn the decision of a patient to ex-
tract a tooth that is causing him or her tremendous pain.
However, I would strongly encourage the patient to enquire,
learn, contemplate and carefully assimilate knowledge

the men so long as you're about the same level it's really
not a problem," she said.

SHANGHAI (Reuters) In China, where women used to have
their feet broken and bound to make them more attractive to
men, women's boxing is growing in popularity and few people
are batting an eyelid.
In an unkempt gymnasium in northern Shanghai, some 30 boys
in their late teens and early 20s pair off to jockey on mats before
taking turns to fight in the ring. At the other end of the room, eight
women and girls are doing the same.
"I've only been boxing for half a year," said Ying Yueqi, a 16-
year-old girl from China's Zhejiang province who wants to turn pro-
fessional when she is older.
"My parents don't mind it at all. I come here six afternoons a
week for three hours a time. I hope eventually to be as good as
Dong Cheng," she said, pointing to a tough-looking, 5-foot 8-inch
woman sparring with her partner nearby.
Said the broad-shouldered Dong, 18: "Some of my male friends
are scared I might hit them."
"But they don't really mind women boxing, although there's
not so many of us yet," added Dong, whose boxing hero is
Muhammad Ali. "This September I hope to go to Kunming in south
China to compete in the national contest."
"Some of my friends still think it's abnormal buf` I've been into
this since I was 15."
Coach Wang Lianfang is less athletic than his students. He ar-
rives late and smells of alcohol but is apologetic and quick to extol
the virtues of women's boxing.
"You could say this represents how much China has changed.

KARACHI (Reuters) Every
Saturday night, Pakistani ac-
tor Ali Saleem puts on a
bright saree and chunky
jewellery and transforms
himself into glamorous
widow Begum Nawazish Ali,
who teases guests with flirty
questions on a television chat
Begum Nawazish exempli-
fies changing media trends in
predominantly Muslim Paki-
stan as the still-conservative so-
ciety struggles to reconcile tra-
ditional values with brash, mod-
ern ways.
Saleem's ground-breaking
chat show is hugely popullar and
he's making no apologies.
"There's acceptance of my
character. I've received no
threats or hate mail from any-
one," Saleem told Reuters as he

By day, Saleem dresses in a
casual white shirt and scruffy
jeans. Only his bronzed hair and

blue nail polish hint at his
Begumn Nawalzish alter ego.
Begum Nawazish has at-
tracted heavyweight politicians,
actresses, businessmen and In-
dian film stars to her plush
drawing room set where they
are greeted with a peck on the
cheek or an elegant handshake.
Saleem, the clean-shaven 27-
year-old son of a retired army
colonel, has been doing cross-
dressing acts for five years and
said he had no fear of dressing
as a woman,
"I've always been honest
with myself and my family and
I don't see Begum Nawazish as
a cross-dresser. It's my tribute
to femininity and women like
Margaret Thatcher and Benazir

gets people on stage to talk
about the sort of personal prob-
lems that have traditionally been
kept hidden behind a veil of
family secrecy.

came to blows with the son-in-
law he thought was not good

realm of the jury. What
eventuated was a manifest
miscarriage of justice in a
situation where the evidence for
the prosecution was crystalline,

has arrived. In my considered
judgment, the submission 'no

Appeal Bishop had said: "Three
years ago, a question similar to
the one raised now, and also
requiring an examination of
circumstantial evidence, was

(Massiah C. Fung-a-Fatt and
~Vieira JJA) in The State v Alvin
Mitchell (1984) 39 WIR 185,
by virtue of section 32A of the
Court of Appeal Act.
"The response given then is
appropriate in the instant
discussion, and it is to be
regretted that the wise words of
Chancellor Massiah, who gave
the leading judgment of the
court, were not considered at
the trial of Cecil Levine, to
guide the arguments and
influence the trialjudge's ruling.
As in Mitchell's case, so here,
the "no case" submission of
defence counsel, should not
have been upheld."
At Mitchell'strial the evidence
.was that the accused, the driver of
a land rover, professed (at 3.00
a~m) to be in a desperate hurry to
reach his destination. However,
subsequent events established the
antithesis of that and demanded of
him an explanation, to the jury, for
the death of 30-year old
Nastawantee Persaud, whose semi-
nude, dead body was found some
hours later, in a clump of bushes.
It suggested that she had been
brutally beaten and raped. The
accused had been the last person in
whose company the woman had
been seen alive,
He had promised to get her
home earlier than her two female

companions, with whom she
had been walking.
The three women were
night-club waitresses who, at
first, had all rejected the
accused's offer of a lift home,
.but eventually Persaud
reluctantly joined the vehicle in
the sincere expectation of swift
conveyance to her home.
Her colleagues, on foot,
reached home ahead of her for the
simple reason that the accused
residence, as soon as he had
surreptitiously sent the other
passenger (a male) on a false
errand into another night club.
Forty-five minutes later, the
accused returned without the
woman, said nothing about her,
but announced to his merry
colleagues that they were to
~drive back forthwith to the
village (12 miles away) from

that night. That they did. But
in a few hours, the accused left
camp for Georgetown some 85
miles away, where he was
After he haid been, in
custody for the greater part of
three days, Mitchell claimed
(for the first time) that the
deceased had fallen out of his
vehicle and met her death,

colleagues, not even to de
Florimonte, the person to whom he
had spoken, 19hten he was setting
out for Georgetown. What is more,
his colleagues denied the accused's
further claim that he had shown
them the deceased's body on the
roadway, during their return
jourmey to the village.
In spite of such an
impressive array of facts, the
trial judge held that there was
no case for the accused to
answer. The Court of Appeal
was appalled at the ruling and
saw fit to review a wide range
of authorities starting with R v
Hookoomchand and Sagur and
ending with R v Galbraith.
Justice of Appeal Bishop
said that a trial judge ought to
have sent the case to the jury
where, in his opinion, there is
sufficient evidence upon which
a reasonable jury, properly
directed, might convict.
But unlike the Mitchell's
case, he stressed that the trial

unsound (established through
cross-examination or
otherwise) that no reasonable
jury could convict on it, or if the

WHEN the Classique dancers are on stage, you see dance at its
best expressive motion, rhythmic accuracy, graceful turning,
poised stances, technical clarity, hand gestures, and subtle
In their dances, you discern elements of the 16th century Kathak
performed by courtesans in the Mughal courts, or the impressive
spectacle of the energetic African dances such as the Macru. You
would also see influences of the sort of African-American dance styles
like Hip Hop and Break-dancing that developed on the streets, in
school yards and nightclubs improvisational and social in nature.
They have already taken to the stage with their own version of the
Jamaica Passa Passa craze characterized by suggestive gyrations.
However, whether it be the fast footwork and spins, or the slow
and mellow bodily expressions, the Classique Dance Company has
brought fresh innovations giving dance a new face but with the
classicism of the past. You find that in the choice name for the
performers. Blending "classic" as in ancient dance forms and adding
aF" t ano icaeth u ctia Iodemen e(ss h a n fok dc)
to the more codified types, requiring skill and excellence (such as
ballet), the Classique dancers have become classic, developing their
own iconic status on the local dance scene.
The group was formed by Clive Prowell, a self-taught dancer
who says he learnt how to listen to music andt personify it in dance.
When he started taking music lessons and observing local danllce
performances, he noticed that the synergy was not smnooth. Because
of his critique, a fr-iendl daredl him to give da~ncingi a shot, since hle
blabbered so much about what went wr'ongf and hlow it should ha;ve
been. The rest is history.
He choreographs aLll the dlances f~or the grou"P, where.ver. thCy
might perform.
"Since dancing is termed as the performing arts, we have beenl
able to school our procession around music, dance and drama~," Clive
Currently, the group has managed to influence 30 authentic
dancers with 12 of them being members.
Over the years, Classique has been given the.opportunity to
perform for a number of government and non-governmental
organizations, and for various national events, including national
beauty pageants, Indian concerts, and just recently, Dave Martin's
'All in Wan' spectacle to celebrate Guyana's 40th Independence

anm e Classique's prowess, it was chosen to be part of the
group that represented Guyana at CARIFEST VIll in Suriname
two year$; ago. Classique has also hosted dance workshops in
Trinidad4 and next month will do the same in Barbados and

Later in the year, the group will perform at Caribana in Canada.
They are also expected to travel to Moscow, Russia, for a dance
Annually, the company puts on production at the National
Cultural Center, called Colour La' Dance, bringing together all the
known dance forms.
"We want Guyanese to know that the dances they see on
television, we have the talent right here to put out the same kind of
dances," Clive says.
For his part, Clive has been able to chalk up quite a reputation
for himself. He has become the Artistic Director for Miss Guyana
Universe and has also moved on to designing. Last year, he was the
man behind the innovative Mr. Xtreme pageant.
Clive says he wants to build on the success of the dance company
and encourages anyone who wants to get into dance contact him at
"Whatever the dance, we do it, but we take it to another
level, a higher level," Clive boasts.

Tenth wedding anniversary greetings are extended
to Junior and Leslyn Roberts who celebrate their spe-
Cial day today. Greetings from their parents, other
relatives and friends. (Picture in graphics under

VEGETATIVE planting material

Seeds of grasses and legumes are usually dormant just after
harvest, and must be treated, to break the dormancy before planting,
a process called scarification. Long storage is usually a very effective
method of scarification, however, dormancy can also be broken by
hot water treatment, which involves pouring hot water over seeds
and letting the seeds remain soaked for 24 hours.
If vegetative material is to be used, the material must either be
dug up from the ground with some root or cut into node pieces
before planting, these can be planted as whole tillers or shoots in

b. Persistence of the planted species.

Pastures require plant nutrients like any other crop and may be
supplied with chemical fertilizer. When fertilizer is used the pasture
can be used for grazing in a shorter time. However, if no fertilizer is
used a pasture may take up to two years before it can be used for
It is recommended that one bag per acre 15-15-15 be used at
establishment to give the pasture an initial push.

Effective weed control begins with good pasture management.
Weeds are seldom a problem in a well-managed vigorously growing
pasture. Good management begins with the proper choice of grass
or legume species, adequate fertility, proper grazing management
and the control of major pests and diseases. If weeds become
established in the pasture they can be controlled by mechanical or
chemical means.

Mechanical control is one of the most often used methods
of weed control and includes brush cutting, weeding and
rouging. Mechanical operations should be well timed to prevent
weeds from seeding.

Tailing a monkey man in

search of healing powers
KOLKATA (Reuters) Thousands of people are flocking to an impoverished Indian village
in eastern West Bengal state to worship a man they believe possesses divine powers because
he climbs up trees in seconds, gobbles up bananas and has a "tail."
Devotees say 2,7-year-old villager Chandre Oraon is an incarnation of the Hindu monkey god
Hanuman worshipped by millions as a symbol of physical strength, perseverance and devotion.
"`He climbs up trees, behaves like a monkey and is a strict vegetarian, but he is no god and his
condition is just a congenital defect," says Bhushan Chakraborty, the local medical officer.
T~uckecd away in a hamlet in Banarhat, over 400 miles north of Kolkata, the state capital, devotees
wait for hours to see or touch Oraon's 13-inch tail, believing that it has healing powers.
Doctors said the "tail" made up of some flesh but mostly of dark hair was simply a rare
physical attribute.
"It is a congenital anomaly, but very rarely do we find such cases," B. Ramana, a Kolkata-
based surgeon, told Reuters

Ag a BBC radio programme produced
by Henry Swanzy featuring the
poetry and short fiction by Carib-
bean Writers. Eventually, he suc-
cumbed to the call of those voices
of Caribbean writers who were
making a name for themselves in the Diaspora.
In 1970, he migrated to Canada from where he eventually gained
international recognition. His work (some translated into foreign lan-
guages) is studied in universities in North American, India, Brazil
and in Europe. His novel THE WIZARD SWAMI was taught at
the M.A. -level literature course at Jawaharlall Nehru University,
Delhi, India.
His poetry, short fiction and essays can be found in major lit-
erary publications around the world including Kaie, New World,
Kyk-over-Al, The Caribbean Writer, Ariel, Exempla (W. Germany),
Kunapipi (Australia), Kavya Bharati (India), World Literature To-
day, and Wasafiri.
He is honoured to have his work selected for significant an-
thologies including 'The Penguin Book of Caribbean Verse', 'India
in the Caribbean', 'Caribbean New Wave: Contemporary Short Sto-
ries', 'Companeros: Writings about Latin America', 'The Heinemann
Book of Caribbean Verse' and 'The Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse'.
So far Cyril Dabydeen has published four novels, eight collec-
tions of short fiction, and ten books of poetry.
A prolific writer, Dabydeen remains a significant voice of
the Indo-Guyanese-Canadian Diaspora, focusing on theme of
cultural clash, identity and alienation, expressing 'strong sym-
pathies for the poor' and revealing the 'hard ironies of exrist-

School, Berbice.
Dabydeen was an avid reader, a characteristic that drew him
into writing. The long hours he spent at the British Council Li-
brary and the Public Library in New Amsterdam were well invested.
At the latter institution, he said, he would go over past issues of
KYK-OVER-AL (edited by A. J. Seymour) again and again, study-
ing the works of established and emerging writers, hoping to see
himself in print one day. Another push towards writing came from
the fact that Edgar Mittelholzer, bomn in New Amsterdam, was mak-
ing waves in the literary arena at the time. That nearness to great-
ness was infectious urging Dabydeen to write.
Dabydeen started writing in his teens, falling under the
influence of Tagore's Gitaqjali in much the same way as J.
W. Chinapen and many other writers from that county*
Dabydeen's first poems were published in the Berbice Times.
The first draft of the novel, THE WIZARD SWAMI, was written
during that early visitation of the muse coupled with the
reading of by V. S. Nalpaul's novels.
With the need to write came the need to connect with other
writers. With Amold Itwaru, (another Berbice-born writer living in
Canada), Dabydeen founded the literary group, 'Aspirants', that
fizzled out too soon for the lack of a literary infrastructure in the
county of Berbice, a matter Dabydeen discussed with Martin Carter
who was a 'seminal influenced' on Dabydeen's writing.
In 1964, he won the Sandbach Parker Gold Medal for poetry
and in 1967, the A. J. Seymour Lyrical Prize. It was during that
period, the National History and Arts Council (NHAC) paid spe-
cial interest in his work, harnessing his thoughts. Those interviews
were done by Seymour and Wordsworth McAndrew.
Sheik Sadeek, who was attached to NHAC and had acquired a
printing press, published Dabydeen's first collection, POEMS OF
The push factor to migrate to a place where the literary climate
was more conducive intensified as he listened to 'Caribbean Voices',

BETWEEN 1984 and 1987, Cyril Dabydeen
was Poet Laureate of Ottawa. In 1988, he
Bwas awarded a Certificate of Merit by the
Govermnent of Canada for work in literature and
art. He was also recognized for writing and
editing by the Ontario Arts Council and the
Department of Canadian Heritage.
Dabydeen received his tertiary education in Canada, gaining a
B.A. from Lakehead University and an M.A. from Queen's Uni-
versity. His M.A. thesis was on the poetry of Sylvia Plath. He
lectured at universities in North America including Cornell, Iowa,
Florida, and Penn State. At present, he's attached to the Depart-
ment of English, University of Ottawa.
He was a founder-member of the League of Canadian Poets, of
PEN International (Canada Chapter), and the United States Asso-
ciation for Commonwealth Languages &r Literature Studies. During
the 1970s and 1980s, he was involved in The Canadian-Asian Stud-
ies Association.
For many years, he worked with the Canadian Govemnment on
human rights issues.
The bulk of his writing was done in Canada where he took
courses in creative writing and where his recent novel, DRUMS
OF MY FLESH, was a finalist in the Ottawa Book Prize.
But Cyril Dabydeen was born in British Guiana in the year
1945. A cousin to David Dabydeen, and a contemporary of Amold
Itwaru and Janice Shineboume, Cyril Dabydeen was bomn in Canje
Village, East Berbice, to a farmer father (who recently passed away
in Guyana) and a seamstress mother.
He received his primary education in Caqje, Berbice, be-
fore going on to the Teachers' Training College, Georgetown.
Between 1961 and 1970, he taught at St. Patrick's Anglican

'By Faizool Deo
SOME religious denominations believe that music is close to
the Almighty. Well, one particular Christian is spreading the
doctrine of his church in Guyana through gospel music, but,
with a peppery mix. He sings chutney, a genre of music that
draws its distinct sound from soca and Hindu film songs.
Anil Azeez, who hit the airwaves with single 'In Jesus meh
can't die,' through debut album 'Come sing a gospel chutney', has
released a second album.
The 23-year-old sees his music as "positive chutney" and his
songs on new album, 'Sing praises in chutney', focuses on the moral
aspects of living,
"I am looking in my own way to keep society on the right
track," Anil pointed out.
One of his songs 'don't drink rum' is seen as an alternative to
Adesh Samaroo's popular song 'Rum till I die.'
Some of the other hits which consider the moral aspects of life
include 'Man must marry woman' and 'Living as one'.
Anil, the chutney gospel singer, has come a long way from his
younger days. He admitted that the negative crowd that he 'limed'
with as a child [unknown to his parents] prompted him to begin
-smoking marijuana at a tender age.
The third of four children born to a Muslim father and Hindu
another, Anil grew up in Essequibo.
He placed no great emphasis on religion, but his revelation came
when his youngest brother who was four years old at the time was
believed to have been possessed by a demon.
He told the Sunday Chronicle that the family consulted many
'holy people' from various religions to cure his brother, but noth-
ing worked until his family sought the help of a pastor.
This single instance was the eye-opener for the then nine-year-
old Anil, his mom and the other children. But it was not until he

In the city, he lived first with his aunt in Lodge, then move on
his own to a different part of the ward. During this period, he at-
tended the First Assembly of God Church on D'Urban Street, and
devoted himself to Christianity. At 19, during a church service, he
was asked to sing a song, and instantly realized that he had the
capacity to sing chutney.
"I sang 'I sing because I am happy' and noticed that I sounded
different? I had a chutney voice," he told the Sunday Chronicle.
Anil pointed out that it was fellow gospel singer Kester D
who initially saw his talent. Ocie Thomas and Nigel Abraham,
both of whom composed songs on his first album, also nur-
tured him.

TIhe last few decades were
the warmest on Earth in the
palst 400 years, and may well
have been wrmler than any
comparable period since the
Middle Ages, U.S. scientists
reported on Thursday.
In a separate study, climate
experts blamed global warming
for much of the hurricane-
fueling rise in temperatures in
the North Atlantic last year,
when there were a number of
devastating hurricanes, including
In a new report by the
National Research Council,
researchers said they were
highly confident the mean global
surface temperature was higher
in the past 25 years than any
comparable period during the
previous four centuries.
They had less confidence
the past quarter-century was
hotter than any comparable
period in the years from 900
to 1600, but found that
plausible. For the years
before 900, the scientists said
they had very little
confidence about what the
Earth's mean surface
temperatures were.
They did not dispute
multiple measurements that
showed the world warmed up
by about I degree F (0.6 C) over
the course of the 20th century,
a quick rise compared with
previous centuries.

The scientists also noted
that temperature
reconstructions for periods
before the Industria~l Revolution
When levels of climate-
warming greenhouse gases were
much lower supported the
notion the current global climate
change was caused by human
activities, rather than natural
variations in climate.

"Natural climate variability
is something that we'd like to
know about," said Kurt Cuffey
of the University of Calif ornia-
Berkeley, who served on the
council's committee and spoke
at a Webcast about the report.
"But if we did know for
example that the climate was as
warm at 1000 AD as it is now,
it would have no essential
impact on our understanding of
climate change in the 20th
century, the role of humans in
causing it and the need to think
seriously about how that may
evolve in the next few
centuries," he said.
The human causes of global
warming have been under
dispute, especially by a
skeptical Bush administration,
but are generally accepted by
scientists as a key factor in
climate change.
Figuring out global
temperatures over the past
150 years is relatively
simple, since reliable records
exist. But for the years and
centuries before that,

researchers must read clues
left by the growth rings on
trees, the retreat of glaciers
and even old paintings and
diaries that document
Such clues are called
proxies, and scientists began
using them in sophisticated
ways in the 1990s to estimate
Earth's surface temperature
in past eras.
The council's report was
prompted by a request from the
U.S. Congress, spurred by a
controversial 1998 report in the
journal Nature that used a
number of sources, including
proxies, to estimate
temperatures in the Northern
Hemisphere over the last 1,000
ye ars.
That report concluded the
hemisphere was warmer
during the late 20th century
than at any other time in the
past millennium, and that the
1990s were the warmest
decade and 1998 was the
warmest year during that
whole period.
In another report on
climate change, a new
analysis blamed global
warming for about half of the
extra hurricane-fueling
warmth in the waters of the
tropical North Atlantic in
2005. Natural cycles were
only a minor factor, according
to research by Kevin
Trenberth and Dennis Shea
of the National Center for
Atmospheric Research.

OSLO (Reuters) Less than
two pe'r cen of the world's
tropical coral reefs are
properly protected from
illegal fishing, mining or
pollution despite government
promises of wider safeguards,
an international study
showed on Thursday.
"The figures are
depressing," said Camilo Mora,
a scientist at Dalhousie
University in Canada and lead
author of the study, carried out
in New Zealand by researchers
fr~om seven nations.
"Many countries create
marine protected areas and then
forget about them." he told
Reuters of the findings.
published in the journal Science.
Lack of protection miay

to the Indlian O)cean. Reefls are
key spawning grounds, are
hlomle to species firom clown fish
to Shark~lS, protect coa~sts from
erosionn and also draw scuba-
diving tourists.
"'Less than two per cent
are extended protection
complete with regulations on
extraction, poaching and
other major threats," the
report said.
Overall, 18.7 per cent of the
area covered by tropical reefs
was within marine protected
areas but most of the
conservation was only on paper,
"Lines on the map are not
enough to protect the world's
coral reefs." Mora said.
Many governments have
promised wider conservation of
nature from reefs to rainforests,
partly to hlelp meet a U.N. goal
of slowing an acclerating ratc of
species loss by 2012.
"W'hile management~ (of

marine protected areas)
varies worldwide, it was
particularly low in arcas of
high coral density such as the
Indo-Pacific and the
Caribbean," said Ransom
Myers, a researcher at
Dalhousie University.
The study did not name the
nations performing worst or
best in reef protection. Mora
said, however, that Australia
had successfully increased
protection for much of the Great
Barrier Reef.
The scientists reached
their figures by building a
database of protected areas
from 102 countries then
comparing it with the
extent of reefs, partly
mapped by satellites. They
then surveyed more than
1,000 managers of
protected areas and
scientists to gauge the
conservation performance.

The Passage
With his eyes wet, so that the edges of things were
blurred, Portia was truly like her mother. Years ago
Daisy had walked like that around the kitchens, silent and
occupied. Daisy was not black as he was her skin -
had been like the beautiful colour of dark honey. She
was always very quiet and gentle. But beneath that soft
gentleness there was something stubborn in her, and no
matter how conscientiously he studied it all out, he could
not understand the gentle stubbornness of his wife.
He would exhort her and he would tell her all that
was in his heart and still she was gentle. And still she
would not listen to him but would go on her own way.
Then later there were Hamilton and Karl Marx
and William and Portia. And this feel of real true pur-
pose for them was so strong that he knew exactly how
each thing should be with them. Hamilton would be a
great scientist and Karl Marx a teacher of the Negro
race and William a lawyer to fight against injustice and
Portia a doctor for women and children.
And when they were even babies he would tell
them of the yoke they must thrust from their shoulders
- the yolk of submission and slothfulness. And when
they were a little older he would impress upon them that
there was no God, but that their lives were holy and for
each one of them there was this real true purpose. He
would tell it to them over and over, and they would sit
together far away from him and look with their big Ne-
gro-children eyes at their mother. And Daisy would sit
without listening, gentle and stubborn....
Then one night he found that Daisy had pierced
holes in little Portia's ears for ear-rings. And another
time a kewpie doll with feather skirts was on the man-
telpiece when he came home, and Daisy was gentle and
hard and would not put it away. He knew, too, that daisy
was teaching the children the cult of meekness. She
told them about hell and heaven. Also she convinced
them of ghosts and of haunted places. Daisy went to
church every Sunday and she talked sorrowfully to the
preacher of her own husband. And with her stubborn-
ness she always took the children to the church, too,
and they listened.

What to Do
1. Read the extract until you think you have covered
all the information. Then draw up a table where you
set up your own number of columns with headings, and
a number of rows. Number the boxes in the table to
the order in which the pockets of information are men-
tioned in the text. Give information such as skin colour,
personality, beliefs, dreams, life style, and you can go
on from here.
2. Write a composition of your own with adaptations
from the text.

The Poem
Come, let us also lift our hands,
We who do not remember the custom of prayer,
We who, except for the burning fire of love,
Do not remember any idol, any god.
Come, let us present a petition that Life, our beloved,
Will pour tomorrow's sweetness into today's poison;
That for those who have not strength for the bur-

what they learn.

Drafting the Story

What happens when you draft your story:
Relate the events in chronological order. In the story
above, tells the central event through a flashback that
"looks back at an earlier event."

In the first paragraph, you can see how the writer
prepares her reader for the problem that is the basis for
her story's plot.

In the second paragraph, Skendzel, gives details that
demonstrate that she is interested not only in the ac-
tions and events but also in how actions and events af-
fect her characters.

Grammar Link

Make Verbs agree with Compound Subjects.

When you have a compound subject joined by or or
nor either ....or or neither ....nor, the verb always

4. However, neither a fur coat nor feathers nor
warm blood (identifies, identify) a mammal.
5. The distinguishing feature or identifying factors (is,
are) a hair or fur covering, warm blood, and the ability
to suckle.

subject, the subject is considered singular.


Many a man, woman and child knows hunger.
Every, eagle, owl, and parrot fascinates me.
Each eagle and owl is soaring.

Let the Noun and Verb Agree

Let us today make a covenant, and let its fever be
The word of Truth, which in the heart like a thorn,
Let us today accept, and the anguish be wiped out.

Developing Your Story

We're heading to our cottage on Scenic Lake. A
dull ache pounds in my head, and my stomach churns
in rhythm with the motor. I stretch out comfortably half-
way across the seat until I accidentally hit my sleeping
sister, Tracy. Just a few months ago we could hardly
fit in this back seat: that's when my brother, Drew was
here. He would take up half the seat alone. The pain
stabs me and the memories quickly flood back.
We're diving for Drew's waterproof wristwatch
as we do every year. Drew or I threw the watch as
far as possible and the other person dives to find it.
Since Drew is seventeen and I am only fourteen, he
holds an unfair advantage, but I never complain. This
time it's my turn to throw it. He has already beaten
me three times today by thirty seconds each, so this par-
ticular time I secretly throw the watch behind me.
Drew bobs up and down the dock, searching for a glint
of silver in the hot summer sun.
"Come on, Ben!" What'd ya do with it?" he
frustratedly whines. I foolishly grin back, pleased that
I have finally outwitted him at something. Grabbing my
arm, he strongly twists it into a horrible snake bite.
"Tell me, Ben, or you know what's coming," he
whispers, checking for our parents. We glare at each
other, flashing with our ugliest poses. Finally, we break
down laughing and I point happily toward the watch.
"You little ..." is all I hear before he sprints off
dock and pulls into a flawless dive.

"Worrying about social isolation is not a matter of nostalgia for
a warm and cuddly past. Real things are strongly connected with

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Americans are more socially iso-

Nearly a quarter of people surveyed said they had "zero" close
friends with whom to discuss personal matters. More than 50 per-
cent named two or fewer confidants, most often immediate family

E!Online Can we get a hey ya! OutKast is finally coming out with a new album.
The Atlanta hip hop-duo, who've been MIA from the music scene since 2003's multiplatinum-selling, Grammy-
winning double disc, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, announced Tuesday that the hugely anticipated follow-up album,
Idlewild, will hit store shelves on August 22.
'Mighty-O', the lead single and first collaborative track for Andre 'Andre 3000' Benjamin and Antwan 'Big Boi'
Patton in over six years, will drop two weeks earlier.
The album will also serve as the soundtrack to their big-screen musical of the same name, which will unspool
nationwide August 25.
Idlewild the movie is a period piece set in a 1930s Georgia speakeasy. Benjamin and Patton play Percival and
Rooster, a club owner and his piano-playing partner who fend off gangsters while pursuing their dreams of show-biz
Ving Rhames, Ben Verecn, Ciccly TySson, Patti LaBelle and Macy Gray also star. OutKast music video director and
longtime pal Bryan Barber is making his feature writing and directing debut on the project.
The movie and album mark the first professional teaming of Dre, 31, and Big Boi, 30, since 2000's Stankonia. The
rappers produced Speakerboxxx/The Love Below as two solo albums packaged together but branded with the OutKast
Despite the disc's massive success selling more than 10 million copies, winning three Grammys,
including Album of the Year and Best Rap Album, and spawning two massive hits Dre's 'Hey Ya!' and Big
Boi's 'The Way You Move' the childhood pals seemed to drift apart, with success and shifting priorities
putting a strain on their relationship.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Patton wanted to hit the road in support of Speakerboxxx, but Benjamin opted
to move to Los Angeles and launch his acting career with roles in Ee Cool and Four Brothers. Ultimately, Big Boi
toured without him.
Benjamin eventually moved back to Atlanta and the two began working on Idlewild. The film has been in the can
for nearly two years, its release postponed while OutKast perfected the accompanying album, which the distributor
(Universal and HBO Films)and label (LaFace/Zomba) wanted to release jointly.
The delays have generated some bad buzz on the Internet, with several fans believing that the studio is dumping the
film in the dog days of summer. OutKast and the filmmakers insist otherwise.
Aside from box-office receipts and Billboard bullets, the real question is whether hIlewild will serve as OutKast's
swan song something the duo has definitely hinted it.
"YThe business has put a strain on our relationship," Beqjamin told EW. "We're like brothers, though. ~We
can argue, but we're still gonna be together. I want Big Boi to do well inside and outside of OutKast Because
certain things don't last forever, and you have to start preparing for that"

As a result, after moving to Wisconsin four years ago, he was
forced to get a land contract rather than a typical loan to buy a
house. He enlisted the help of Arthur Giraldo, a man vilified in
Diamond's online rambling, whom the TV star claims now wants
the house for himself.
According to Diamond, the land around his home has since been
developed, increasing the property value and causing the state to
demand the property back. He claims Giraldo, whom he hired to
assist in saving his home, has failed to help him solidify owner-
ship, mostly due to the alleged ulterior motives of wanting the prop-
erty himself.
There has been no immediate conunent from Giraldo.
The former Bayside High School fixture, meanwhile, says he
has been given a month to pony up the $250,000 needed to keep
his home. Hence, the T-shirt plan.
"I received a letter stating that I had 30 days to pay $250,000
or get out," he writes on his Website. "I was not thrilled."
Diamond is selling two types of "D-shirts" to aid in his house
saving. One, selling for $15, features a photo of the actor in front
of his home with the message "I paid $15 to save Screeech's house."

Hel's also hawking an autographed version of the shirt for $20 with
the extra special handwritten message to "F- Giraldo."
It may be tough going for the destitute star, though. He admit-
led on the Stern show that he would need to sell 30,000 T-shirts to
raise the requisite money.
Diamond also chronicled the news of his impending foreclosure
"That's right, yours truly gets served with a notice to foreclose.
They're gonna take my house! I'm gonna be homeless! Dustin Dia-
mond homeless in Wisconsin. BULLS- T!"
Diamond further writes out the message he left for Giraldo, the
New York Capital Exchange broker he blames for his potential
"Tell Arthur Giraldo...I am losing my house. If he doesn't
call me back I'll go to Howard Stern and tell the world (New
York especially) how he does business. Let's face it, if he can't
find the time to work on a mortgage for a famous celebrity,
how will he handle the average person?"

If you have monthly paid employees you are required to complete the CS2 Schedule every
month and remit those contributions to the National Insurance Office in your district.
If you have monthly paid employees who are either under 16 years of age or over 60
years of age you should use the same CS2 Schedule to pay contributions at the end of each
m-ronth. However, it is advisable to place such persons on a separate listing.

If you have weekly paid employees you should use the CS6 Schedule to pay contributions
for those weekly paid employees at the end of each month.

lIf you have fortnightly paid employees you should use the CS6 Schedule. Employees'
carmings must be recorded against the week actually worked in the fortnightly.
I you have fortnightly or weekly paid employees who are either under 16 years of age or
i 'er 60 years of age you should use the CS6 Schedule depending on the number of
i nployees. These should also be listed separately as stated above.

`Vhere employees are paid daily, their daily earnings must be totaled each week and their
lhisurable Earnings arrived at for the week. Contributions for such persons are to be paid
b-ased on Weekly Insurable Earnings.

Contributions for weekly paid workers MUST be calculated on WEEKLY EARNINGS. So
when employers are filling out the CS6 Schedule (which has provision for five (5)
contribution weeks) they must first calculate each weekly insurable amount individually,
calculate individual weekly rate of contribution and then insert total Insurable Earnings and
total contribution for the period, regardless of whether there are four (4) or five (5) Mondays
in the month.
