Nude stand-in
wants exposure
BEL ING (Reuters) -A Chinese actress who played
Hollywood movie star Zhang Ziyi's naked body
double in "The Banquet" wants her name in the
movie's credits, state media reported Friday.
"The Banquet," a Fcng Xiaogang-directed film set


for release in China in the autumn, stars "Memoirs of a Geisha"
actress Zhang Ziyi and features several body doubles to play her
in nude and fight scenes, the Nanfang Daily newspaper said.
Shao Xiaoshan said she was paid 20,000 yuan ($2,500) for
shooting several nude scenes in comments carried by the paper.
"Feng Xiaogang was very satisfied with my body, and asked
me to play the 'naked double'," the paper quoted Shao as saying.
But the actress feared a lack of exposure, hearing that her
name would not appear in the credits and having her calls ig-

Appeal fund for

family open
THE appeal fund for the family of slain Security Guard Curtis
Robertson, initiated by the Guyana National Newspapers Lim-
ited, publishers of the Guyana and Sunday Chronicle about
two months ago, has been activated.
An account, with the number 6550461, is open at the Republic
Bank (formerly National Bank of Industry and Commerce (NBIC.)
A page one photo and editorial in the April 29th edition of the
Sunday Chronicle on the plight of the wife and seven sons of the
security guard stirred the hearts of many readers here and over-
seas.
In response to the e-mails and in our little way to help the
family in this great hour of need, the appeal was launched.
Robertson was slain in the murderous attack on acting Agricul-
ture Minister Satyadeow Sawh on April 22. Two of the ministers'
siblings Pulmatie Persaud and Rajpat Rai were also killed.
Since the attack, several persons from overseas and agencies
from Guyana, such as the University of Guyana, have made dona-
tions to the guard's widow Rehanna Haywood.
She says she is thankful for the appeal which was launched
since the money will help out a great deal.
Haywood was given a house lot at Parfaite Harmony, West

ninth Caribbean Festival of
Creative Arts
(CARIFESTA) in Trinidad
and Tobago in September,
were among the packed
agenda issues for last
week's four-day summit.
The end-of-summit
communique that reflects decisions
on human resources development,
health and HIV/AIDS said that a
study received from Sir George on
"the macro-economic implications
of non-communicable diseases",
showed that the number of deaths
resulting from diabetes,
hypertension and heart diseases
are 10 times higher than the
number resulting from HIV/AIDS.
The report also identified
the high costs of treatment of
diabetes and hypertension
across the community.
** On crime and security,
the summit approved a regional
strategy for ensuring a "safe
and secured environment" for
the hosting of Cricket World
Cup 2007, the arrangements of
which could prove advantageous
in the longer term in facilitating
intra-regional freedom of
movement with the creation of
a single economic space.
Components of the
strategy include the
introduction of a common "Visa
Policy" applicable to nationals
of some 46 countries, including
CARICOM states; an
Advanced Passenger
Information system (APIS); a
system of intelligence-sharing
and creation of an estimated
400-strong regional Law
Enforcement and Military
Operational Team.


** CULTURE: For' the
forthcoming 9th CARIFELSTA,
the Caribbean's premiere
cultural event, scheduled for
Trinidad and Tobago from
September 22 to October 1 this
year, arrangements are being
vigorously pursued to ensure
the widest and highest quality
of involvement from delegations
from the Greater Caribbean,
including Cuba, the Dominican
Republic and Haiti.
The Heads of
Government also agreed to
provide financial support for
the Regional Endowment Fund
for Culture and the Arts as well
as to contribute to the financial
sustainability of CARIFESTA.
The Bahamas is to host the 10th
CARIFESTA in 2008.


** On the controversial
issue of human trafficking and
a United States-imposed
arbitrary rating system, the
community leaders agreed that
it was necessary to establish a
"multilateral evaluation
mechanism" (MEM) that is

U.S. destroyer arrives in Japan


TOKYO (Reuters) A U.S.
Navy guided missile destroyer
with the navy's most advanced
combat weapon system


arrived in Japan yesterday as
tensions surrounding North
Korea's missile tests
remained high.


The USS Mustin, equipped
with missile tracking and
engaging systems and with a
crew of 300, will be permanently


deployed at the navy's
Yokosuka base in Tokyo Bay,
U.S. Navy spokeswoman
Hanako Tomizuka said.
The U.S. Navy now has
eight vessels equipped with its
Aegis weapon system at
Yokosuka, home of its Seventh
Fleet. They are scheduled to be
joined next month by the Aegis
cruiser Shiloh, which last month
took part in an exercise off
Hawaii that involved
successfully intercepting a
missile in flight.
Separately, Japan's
Maritime Self-Defence Force
conducted a missile firing drill
off the Hawaiian island of Kauai
on Friday as part of a
multinational exercise, Kyodo
news agency said yesterday.
Three destroyers each


successfully fired a missile at
an unmanned target aircraft, it
.said.
A salvo of missile tests by
North Korea on Wednesday,
including the launch of a long-
range Taepodong-2 missile,
unsettled the region and led to
calls for the United Nations
Security Council to impose
international sanctions on
Pyongyang.
North Korea has insisted it
has the right to test the
missiles, and has said it would
consider sanctions against it a
declaration of war. Much of its
anger has been aimed at Japan
for pushing for sanctions.
Japan also banned a North
Korean ferry, the only regular
direct link between the two
countries, from entering its


ports for six months as part of
a package of initial sanctions.
A poll published yesterday
found that four-fifths of
Japanese think their country
should step up economic
sanctions against North Korea
in response to the missile
launches.
A total of 80.7 per cent
favoured stronger sanctions such as
blocking money remittances to
North Korea or curbing trade with
Pyongyang, according to a survey
of 1,011 people conducted on
Friday and yesterday by Kyodo.
On North Korea's missile
firings, 87 per cent expressed
anxiety, with 45.2 per cent
saying they "feel very
anxious"- and 41.8 per cent
saying they "feel somewhat
anxious", it said.

PM booed
By Philip Pullella and Jane
Barrett

VALENCIA, Spain (Reuters) -
Pope Benedict urged Spain
yesterday to defend the
traditional family in the
country where the Church and
government have clashed
head-on over the legalization
of gay marriage.
The Pope said there were
certain things to which the
Church must just say "No", and
that the family based on
heterosexual marriage was "a
unique institution in God's
plan".
The 79-year-old Pope
received a tumultuous welcome


in the coastal city of Valencia,
where he was to spend little
more than 24 hours at a global
gathering of Roman Catholic
families.
But Spanish Prime
Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez
Zapatero, whose government
legalized gay marriage last
year, was whistled while he
visited the archbishop's
residence for an audience with
the Pope, which lasted just 15
minutes.
"There are certain things
that Christian life says 'No'
to," the Pope told reporters on
his plane from Rome to Spain.
"We want to make people
understand that according to
human nature, it is a man and
a woman who are made for


each other and made to give
humanity a future," he added.
As well as the gay marriage
law, which gives gays the same
adoption and inheritance rights
as heterosexual couples, the
Church has criticized new
Spanish laws making divorce and
fertility treatment easier and
cutting religious education.
The Pope paid tribute to
historical Spain, once ruled by
the Catholic kings, and urged
bishops to hold firm "at a time
of rapid secularization".
"Acting as if (God) did not
exist or relegating faith to the
purely private sphere,
undermines the truth about
man and compromises the
future of culture and society,"
he said.

Migrant dies as U.S. Coast Guard chases speedboat


MIAMI, (Reuters) A Cuban
migrant died yesterday from
possible head injuries after
the US. Coast Guard chased
a speedboat suspected of
smuggling 31 people into the
United States and fired into
its engines to stop the vessel,
US. officials said.
The Coast Guard said the
death of a woman on the boat


was not as a result of the
shooting, which occurred after
a high-speed chase about
dawn that began 39 miles (63
km) south of Key West and
ended 4 miles (6.4 km) south
of Boca Chica in Florida.
Two Coast Guard vessels
tried to corner the 36-foot
(1l-metre) Carrera, a
speedboat with three


outboard motors that tried to
ram one of the pursuing vessels
more than five times. It had three
suspected people smugglers on
board in addition to 31
passengers.
An investigation will
determine whether the smuggling
suspects face charges and the
status of the passengers will be
determined later.

Registrar.


The Coast Guard said two
rounds were fired into one of the
boat's engines to stop it and that
"no migrants received injuries as
a result of the disabling fire."
It said three migrants were
found to be in need of medical
attention, including the woman,
who had severe bruises to her
face and apparent head injuries.
She died as she was being taken
to hospital.
The dead woman might
have sustained the head injuries
during the high-speed voyage,
Capt. Phil Heyl, the Coast
Guard commander in Key West,
said.
"There was no way for
these people to brace
themselves against the impact of
the boat slamming into the rough
seas," Heyl said.
The U.S. Attorney's Office
in Miami said it was

investigating the death.
"Smugglers often treat
migrants as if they were human
cargo, with blatant disregard for
individual life and safety. This
must stop," said R. Alexander
Acosta,' U.S. Attorney for the
Southern District of Florida.
Hundreds of Cubans leave
their communist country every
year by sea, paying smugglers
about $8,000 to take them
across the Florida Straits to the
United States.
Some smugglers have turned
their operations to Mexico and


Central America to avoid
interception by the U.S. Coast
Guard.
Cuba blames the U.S.
government for encouraging
illegal emigration from the island
by granting almost automatic
residence to Cubans who make
it across to dry land in the
United States.
Under Washington's
controversial "dry-foot, wet-
foot" policy adopted after a
mass exodus of Cubans in
1994, boat people intercepted
at sea are returned to Cuba.


Mexican leftist claims vote fraud
By Catherine Bremer and Alistair Bt3

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) Andres Manne Lopez Obrador.
a fiery leftist who finished second in Mexico's contested
presidential election, claimed yesterday he was the victim
of fraud and called supporters to the streets in protest
Lopez Obrador said the razor-thin election victory of
conservative Felipe Calderon last Sunday %as plagued by
irregularities. He said he would take his case to a large crowd in
the capital's vast Zocalo square yesterday.
"We are faced with a typical case of electoral fraud in
Mexuco," Lopez Obrador told foreign correspondents hours
before the rally, where at least 100,000 people were expected
to back the popular former mayor of Mexico City.
"We are sure we won the election," he said. "I am going
to defend our victory."

Ve p itBR-ICKEY -SINGlH


THE just-concluded 27th CARICOM Summit in St Kitts
and Nevis was one of the more significant of such con-
ferences in the 33 years existence of the regional eco-
nomic integration movement. Both for the progress
made and the evident spirit of camaraderie that
characterized the occasion throughout.
Whether the issue was regional security for and be-
yond Cricket World Cup 2007; forging a
common programme in battling crime; widening the cat-
egories for nationals eligible for intra-regional free move-
ment to live and work; or addressing sensitive
matters like backing a non-CARICOM candidate for a
UN Security Council seat in October, consensus was the
order of the day without expediently
sacrificing fundamental principles in governance of the
community.
Guyana, which for the first time had a Foreign Minis-
ter (Rudy Insanally) as head of its delegation, instead
of Head of State or Prime Minister, would have good
cause to be satisfied with important decisions taken.
Among them would be the basis for the consensus
arrived at in support for Venezuela to secure the non-
permanent seat on the UN Security Council for which it
is competing against United States-backed Guatemala.
Also, in ensuring that there will be a CARICOM observer
mission among overseas monitoring teams for the
coming general elections.
Critical to the choice for the UN Security Council seat,
an issue which the U.S. State Department unfortunately
chose to politicise to the extent of strengthening the
resolve of some CARICOM governments in opposing


That vote for Venezuela


Guatemala, was the positions of Guyana and Belize -
both of which have territorial disputes with, respectively,
Venezuela and Guatemala.
Once it became clear that support would be forth-
coming from both Guyana and Belize for Venezuela with-
out prejudice to a satisfactory resolution to their histori-
cal territorial disputes, the deliberations proceeded with
reported specific suggestions being linked to the deci-
sion.
They included reaffirmation of an earlier proposal by
a trio of CARICOM Prime Ministers for a meeting with
the Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, as soon as
possible.
This time, the focus will specifically be in getting a
more positive approach by his administration in overall
cooperation with Guyana, and also in forging synergies
between Trinidad and Tobago's proposed regional en-
ergy plan and the Venezuela-initiated energy coopera-
tion agreement with CARICOM states, namely
PetroCaribe.
The CARICOM leader identified to head talks with
Chavez! is Trinidad and Tobago's Patrick Manning. In
preparation for that meeting, Venezuela may be required
to reflect on its own contradictory positions in giving as-
surance not to impede Guyana's economic develop-
ment, yet not facilitating the environment for foreign in-
vestment in the disputed region. Worse, and quite re-
cently, opposing fortunately unsuccessfully two
loans for Guyana from the Inter-American Development
Bank.
What is clearly required is not mere public relations,
media-driven gestures but for Venezuela, under
Chavez's leadership, to come forward with an initiative
of significance that demonstrates, in practical
terms, commitment to Guyana's overall economic devel-
opment while negotiations proceed with more deliber-


ate haste to resolve a colonial-inherited territorial dis-
pute.
Guatemala may have shot itself in the foot by
its policy of hostility over recent years in opposing initia-
tives by CARICOM. Not only in securing concessions
in the competitive marketing of its bananas in
Europe, but by its consistent opposition to the
community's quest for special and differential
treatment for disadvantaged economies in external trade
and economic negotiations.
In the final analysis, however, while Guatemala may.
have been the wrong candidate for the U.S. to back
against Venezuela, it was Guyana's decision to be sup-
portive without prejudice to its national interest that
undoubtedly made the crucial difference in CARICOM's
preferred choice for that non-permanent UN Security
Council seat in October.
Strategies in the months ahead would be closely
monitored.

GIVING A 'HUMAN FACE' TO CARICOM

Help from our icons and security arrangements for CWC 2007?


Analysis by
RICKEY SINGH

GIVING a 'human face' in
marketing the benefits of the
CARICOM Single Market
(CSME) remains a major
challenge to the region's
economic integration move-
ment, 33 years after it was
launched at Chaguaramas in
Trinidad and Tobago.

get their act together, after
some tension-filled negotiations.

focus has shifted to completing

ing reality shortly thereafter.
Difficult, challenging the
task has surely been in moving
the process forward from the
launch of CARICOM in
Trinidad and Tobago in 1973 to
the two separate signing cer-
emonies for inauguration of the
CSM in 2006 first by six
countries in Jamaica last Janu-
ary, and another half a
dozen last Monday in St. Kitts.
A critical dimension to
launching the 12-member CSM
was reaching a compromise for-
mula for contributions to the
CARICOM Development Fund
(CDF), initially with a capital
endowment of US$120M.
The compromise was es-
sentially based on the
principle that.countries to ben-
efit the most must be the ones
to contribute the most, and it
managed to meet different con-
cerns of the.less developed
economies of the OECS sub-re-
gion and Belize, as for the so-
called 'More Developed Coun-
tries, among them Jamaica and
Guyana.

'LIVED EXPERIENCE'

However: translating satis-
faction in milestones iin
CARICOM's progress togiving
the region's economic integra-
tion movement a human face, or
making it whiit Prime Minister
Owen Arthur speaks of as "a
lived experience", is proving to
be quite an enormous problem.
That is the sensitive issue of
intra-regional labour mobility
better and more popularly
known as 'free movement of
labour'.

In the words of the Prime

been openly praised by his
community colleagues for his
sterling contribution to help get
the Development Fund off the
floor-level:
"Free movement of labour
has been and continues to be the
bugbear in efforts at deepening
the economic integration
process...We must shed our
mental shackles on this impor-
tant matter. It is most essential
for the way forward...
."We must change our atti-
tudes to one.another in funda-
mental ways in the Caribbean.

from callers to radio talk-shows.
for his advocacy for a better
understanding why free move-

in the process of a functioning
CSME, would readily
empathise with the sentiment
expressed by Manning.
But as leaders of two coun-
tries whose economies stand to
benefit the most from the
CARICOM Development
Fund, Prime Ministers Manning
and Arthur themselves have
much work to do at home in
convincing, for a start, their re-
spective immigration and cus-

important roles in facilitating

SUNDAY CHRONICLE July 9, 2006 7


Hemispheric nations




should help establish




confidence in Guyana


elections


THE countries of the West-
ern Hemisphere in general
and the states of the Carib-
bean Community
(CARICOM) in particular
have a responsibility to en-
sure that agreed modalities
are put in place that would
allow broad acceptance in
Guyana of the results of im-
pending general elections.
While power-sharing by the
political parties elected to the
Guyana Parliament would be


the most desirable outcome of
general elections that are consti-
tutionally due, and may be held,
by early September, the over-
riding concern must be that the
elections are endorsed as free
and fair by all the political par-
ties and independent observer
missions.
If the elections are not re-
garded as free of voter manipu-
lation, the opposition parties
will not accept the result, and
this could lead to protests and


Nelson the


THE oddest bit of news last
week was the tale of the hunt
for Nelson Mandela's pistol,
buried on a farm near
Johannesburg 43 years ago.
It was a Soviet-made
Makarov automatic pistol, given
to Mandela when he was under-
going military training in


-- -------- ----
Ethiopia. (He also went to Al-
geria, to learn from the revolu-
tionaries who had just fought a
savage eight-year war of inde-
pendence to drive out their
French colonial rulers.) A week
after he buried the gun, he was
arrested by the apartheid
regime's police as a terrorist and
jailed for life.
It's very hard now to
imagine Nelson Mandela as a
terrorist. He is the most uni-
versally admired living hu-
man being, almost a secular
saint, and the idea that he had
a gun and was prepared to
shoot people with it just
doesn't fit our picture of
him. But that just shows how
naive and conflicted our atti-
tudes towards terrorism are.
Nelson Mandela never did
kill anybody personally. He
spent the next 27 years in jail,
and only emergr - i l man
to negotiate Souti A ....... .,
sition to democracy with the
very regime that had jailed him.
But he was a founder and


commander of Umkhonto we
Sizwe (Spear of the
Nation), the military wing
of the African National Con-
gress, and MK, as it was known.
was a terrorist outfit. Well, a
revolutionary movement that
was willing to use terrorist tac-
tics, to be precise, but that kind
of fine distinction is not permis-
sible in polite company today.
As terrorist outfits go, MK
was at the more responsible end
of the spectrum. For a long
time, it only attacked symbols
and servants of the apartheid
state, shunning random attacks
on white civilians even though
they were the main beneficiaries
of that regime. By the time it did
start bombing bars and the like
in the 1980s, Mandela had been
in prison for twenty years and
bore no direct responsibility for
the MK's acts but neither he
nor the ANC ever disowned the
organisation. Indeed, after the
transition to majority rule in
1994, MK's cadres were inte-
grated into the new South Afri-
can Defence Force alongside the
former regime's troops.
There's nothing unusual
about all this. Jomo Kenyatta in
Kenya, Archbishop Makarios in
Cyprus, Robert Mugabe in
Zimbabwe and a dozen other
national leaders emerged from
prison to negotiate indepen-
dence after "terrorist"
organizations loyal to them had
worn down the imperial forces
that occupied their countries. In
the era of decolonisation, terror-
ism was a widely accepted
technique for driving the occu-
piers out. South Africa was
lucky to see so little of it, but
terrorism WAS part of the
struggle there too.
Terrorism is a tool, not an
ideology. Its great attraction is
that it offers small or weak
groups a means of imposing
-' changes on their
so . --..ase ctl* '
you might support, even if you
don't like the chosen means;


demonstrations in the streets.
One incident could ignite civil
commotion and confrontation.
Guyana has laboured long
under the strain of division be-
tween its two main political
parties, the People's Progressive
Party/Civic (PPC/C) and the
People's National Congress Re-
form (PNCR) who count their
core supporters among the East
Indian and African communities
respectively. In the past, the ra-
cial division has spilled into vio-


lence.
It is not in the interest of
Guyana, CARICOM and the
hemisphere for civil strife to
erupt. Already a Highly In-
debted Poor Country (HPIC),
with the second lowest per
capital income in the Caribbean,
the country's economy would
sink to even lower depths, as
new investment turns away and
existing investors apply brakes
to their businesses.
The effect of an unstable
country within the CARICOM
fold and in the hemisphere is a
prospect that neither govern-
ments nor business people

others you would detest. But
the technique itself is just one
more way of effecting political
change by violence a nasty but
relatively cheap way to force a
society to change course, and
not intrinsically a more wicked
technique than dropping bombs
on civilians from warplanes to
make them change their
behaviour.
Neither terrorism nor mili-
tary force has a very high suc-
cess rate these days: most
people will not let themselves
be bullied into changing their
fundamental views by a few
bombs. Even in South Africa's
case, MK's bombs had far less
influence on the outcome than
the economic and moral pres-
sures that were brought to bear
on the apartheid regime. But
that is not to say that all right-
thinking people everywhere re-


ject terrorist methods. They
don't.
What determines most
people's views about the legiti-
macy of terrorist violence is
how they feel about the specific
political context in which force
is being used. Most Irish Catho-
lics felt at least a s",akine s '..
.e I.
Northern Ireland. Most non-
white South Africans approved


of MK's attacks, even if they
ran some slight risk of being
hurt in them themselves. Most
Tamils both in Sri Lanka and
elsewhere support the cause of
the Tamil Tigers, and many ac-
cept its methods as necessary.
Americans understandably see
all terrorist attacks on the
United States and its forces
overseas as irredeemably
wicked, but most Arabs and
many other Muslims are am-
bivalent about them, or even
approve of them.
We may deplore these bru-
tal truths, but we would be fool-
ish to deny them. Yet in much
of the world at the moment it
is regarded as heretical or even
obscene to say these things out
loud, mainly because the United
States. having been suffered a
major attack by Arab terrorists
in 2001, has declared a "global
war on terror." Rational discus-
sion of why so many Arabs are
willing to die in order to hurt the
United States is suppressed by
treating it as support for terror-
ism, and so the whole phenonm-
enon comes to be seen by most
people as irrational and inexpli-
cable.
And meanwhile, on a
former farm near
Johannesburg that was long
ago subdivided for suburban
housing, they have torn down
all the new houses and are
systematically digging up the
ground with a back-hoe in
search of the pistol that Saint
Nelson Mandela, would-be
terrorist leader, buried there
in 1963. If they find it, it will
be treated with as much rev-
erence as the Holy Hand
Grenade of Antioch. The pas-
sage of time changes many
things.

want, particularly at a time
when CARICOM countries
host the Cricket World Cup
tournament with its already
challenging security issues.
Guyana, itself, is scheduled to
be the venue for some of these
games.
Working with CARICOM
governments, the major coun-
tries in the hemisphere, espe-
cially Canada and the U.S.,
should do all in their power, bi-
laterally and through the
Organisation of American States
(OAS), to encourage President
Bharrat Jagdeo of the PPP/C,
Robert Corbin of the PNCR,
and the leaders of other politi-
cal parties to sit down and
work out agreed modalities for
holding the general elections.
This has become necessary
because there are groups within
the country who believe that
the voters' list prepared by the
Guyana Elections Commission
(GECOM) is flawed and re-
quires verification. This is not
a view held by others, includ-
ing some diplomatic representa-
tives in the country who have
openly stated that elections
could be held on the new regis-
ter and that there are sufficient
checks and balances to ensure a
fair election.
Nonetheless. controversy
surrounds the list and this
opens the way for claims of
fraud after the elections by the
political contenders. In this con-
nection, every effort should be
made to establish as great a con-
fidence as possible in the elec-
toral process.
Delaying the election will
intensify apprehension and sus-
picion among the political par-
ties and their supporters and
create space for trouble. It may
be best, therefore, to hold the
elections but to do so with mo-
dalities in place that give all the
contending parties comfort that
the result will be a genuine re-
flection of the will of the ma-
jority of people who are en-
titled to vote.
There is good reason why
CARICOM should insist on
playing a role in getting all the
political parties in Guyana to
agree on the procedures for vot-
ing that will allow voters to be
matched and verified from a list
of the polling district in which
they vote.
Guyana is CARICOM's
largest territory and in the Car-
ibbean Single Market (CSM),
the exploitation of Guyana's
vast resources becomes available
to the region as a whole.
A stable and revitalized
Guyana offers the Caribbean
people the chance to establish
businesses and take up employ-


nient.
Western llemisphere na-
tions, particularly Canada and
the U.S., through the OAS, fi-
nanced the work of GECOM in
the main. To try to bring about
confidence in the electoral pro-
cess, they could urge that mo-
dalities be agreed by the major
contending parties for holding
the elections.
One element in such mo-
dalities would be more funds al-
located through the OAS to
train and accredit teams of local
people who could be sent to ev-
ery polling station across the
country to scrutinise and en-
dorse the voting process from
the casting of the first vote to
the counting of the last ballot.
In other words, to ensure that
the persons casting votes are
registered in the polling place
and that the number of voters


matches the number of votes
cast.
While CARICOM, the
Commonwealth and the OAS
have already indicated that they
will send missions to observe
the elections, teams of trained
and independent local observers
stationed at each polling station
would greatly enhance their
work.
The Commonwealth Secre-
tary-General, Don McKinnon.
hinted at a press conference in
the Caribbean last week that he
may be willing to send his spe-
cial envoy. Sir Paul Reeves, back
to Guyana to talk to the politi-
cal leaders to see if, even at this
late stage, a consensus might be
developed on the process of the
general election.
Sir Paul has been playing a
facilitator's role in trying to pro-
mote a consensus among the
parties for the conduct of the
general election. So far. his ef-
forts have reaped no great re-
ward.
But. worry about what
will happen after the election
is rife throughout Guyana.
and the political parties must
themselves be deeply con-
ccrned.
In this context, the time
is ripe for Western Hemi-
sphere governments and
CARICOM states to
strengthen Sir Paul's hand
by giving him and the Com-
monwealth Secretariat the
muscle and the means to of-
fer a process for conducting
and monitoring the election
in which there could be wide-
spread confidence.

Not in Our Stars...


"Men at some time are masters
of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in
our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are
underlings"
William Shakespeare: Julius
Caesar, Act I, Scene II
MY PREVIOUS article on the
subject of natural disasters
(June 8, 2006) was in fact a
precursor to the 12th Meeting
of the Special Committee on
Natural Disasters of the As-
sociation of Caribbean States
(ACS), held that same week
in Port of Spain and the pre-
sentation of a new ACS
Project entitled: High-level
Conference on Preparedness,
Mitigation of the Effects and
Recovery from Natural Disas-
ters in the Greater Caribbean.
The purpose of the event is
to exchange experiences, lessons
learnt and best practices in the
areas of natural disaster risk re-
duction, mitigation and recovery
within the region, as well as de-
termine areas of intra-regional
co-operation in all three areas.
Given the sheer number of
initiatives in our region, the scant
resources and the heterogeneity
of the different actors, these mat-
ters are best addressed by the
type of activity proposed. This
approach takes advantage of the
economies of scale achieved by
harnessing the wealth of comple-

Caribbean This Week


mentary capacities of our region
which ranges from high-tech
equipment and scientific knowl-
edge to the low-tech but key ex-
perience and know-how, so fun-
damental at the community level.
The conference, to be fi-
nanced almost entirely by exter-
nal donors, would also examine
the possibilities for establishing


regional mechanisms in the
framework of the agreement
amongst ACS members for Re-
gional Co-operation in the Area
of Natural Disasters, the Hyogo
Framework for Action, the
Kingston Declaration and the
UN's International Strategy for
Disaster Reduction, amongst
others.
Participants' response to the
proposal was heartening, given the
enthusiastic inputs recommending
that the conference address matters
concerning development and risk
reduction policies and the need for a
Regional Fund for disaster manage-
ment to be created, underscoring that
the fund must not be focused on
reconstruction, but rather on risk
reduction.
In addition, it was agreed
that the conference should con-
sider the correlation between
poverty and natural disasters,
analysing the eradication of pov-
erty and sustainable development
in the framework of the interna-
tional agenda on the subject.
It' was also suggested that


the issue of the transfer of risks
in terms of costs, as well as that
on insurance be included in the
Plan of Action for the conference.
It was further agreed, perhaps
for the first time in this
association's history, that a gen-
der perspective be included in the
discussion and outcome.
This conference is also
timely, given that the Latin
American and Caribbean re-
gion lags behind the rest of the
world in our response to the
mandates emanating out of
Hyogo, as both Asia and Af-
rica have already had their re-
gional meetings on the imple-
mentation of that outcome.
The conference, to be com-
prised by the ministers respon-
sible for civil defence/protection,
as well as regional and international
organizations, will discuss plan
of action at national, regional and
international levels, to be ulti-
mately adopted by governments.
As in the Shakespeare quote
above, we must take responsi-
bility for our own security re-
gionally, nationally and at the
community level, as no one else
will (nor should) do it for us.
We read with some baffle-
ment in the Guardian of May
23rd that, many months after
Katrina's awe-inspiring landfall,
60% of the 1,725 coastal resi-
dents surveyed in the U.S. Gulf
region have no disaster plan,
whilst 68% have no hurricane
survival kit and 13% have stated
their unwillingness to evacuate
if ordered.
One cannot help but won-
der what a similar poll would
glean from our region.
Sorry, but no Nobel Prize
for guessing.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE July 9, 2006






ELECTIONS SECURITY


SECURITY, the President of
Guyana declared in 2002, will
remain a top priority.
This was said at a time
when the post-elections
violence orchestrated by the
PNCR saw criminals being used
as political agents of terror.
The PNCR has always
employed fear, intimidation and
violence as part of its electoral
strategy.
This legacy of electoral
violence dates back to the July
16, 1973 elections when armed
agents of the PNC dictatorship
gunned down two polling
agents, who peacefully objected
to the stealing of ballot boxes
from the place of poll for the
purpose of rigging.
Not only were PPP agents
target of this type of violence.
Foreign observers and media
personnel were beaten, harassed
and underwent various forms of
physical assault in Elections
before the return of democracy
in 1992. There were two world-
renowned documentaries
produced in the United
Kingdom by the international
media which chronicled aspects
of violence and harassment that
were pillars of the systematic
rigging of Elections by the PNC
dictatorship of 1968-1992.
And when the first post-
Independence free and fair
elections were held in 1992,
PNC-organised elements
stormed the Guyana
Elections Commission
(GECOM) building on Croal
Street. This unrest, led by
several PNCR leaders,
threatened the conclusion of
the October 5, 1992 polls.
Former U.S. President
Jimmy Carter (head of the
Carter Centre Observer
Mission) had to intervene
and issued an ultimatum to
the late President Hoyte for
quick and effective response
by the security forces to this
threat of politically organised
violence and unrest.
The 1997 Elections was no
different in terms of the


PNCR's refusal to accept the
will of the Guyanese people.
Violence and terror were
unleashed. Everyone remembers
the January 12, 1998 eruptions
when PNCR organised thugs
attacked, robbed and beat
anyone whom they thought
were PPP/C supporters in
central Georgetown. A leading
PNCR official then advised all


Indo-Guyanese who supported
the PNCR to seek refuge in
Congress Place if they did not
want to be attacked by the
political mobs.
In the 2001 Elections
campaign, the PNCR mobilised
thugs in buses to stone PPP/C
public meetings in areas which
it considered its traditional base.
The television camera captured
many of these violent electoral
tactics. Local and foreign
observer missions also
condemned this form of violent
and provocative behaviour.
Having lost the Elections, the
violence escalated and this time
not only was the commercial
centre targeted but communities
along the East Coast of
Demerara saw horrific forms of
attacks.
One of the consequences
was that Buxton was put under


siege by these politically-
inspired agents who held
residents hostage and made the
area a safe-haven for criminals.
Today, the Guyana Defence
Force has a Camp in that
community as part of the overall
security measures to counter
such criminal behaviour.
The resultant negative
impact of the Elections-
related violence on the
safety and security of our
people is well known.
We are still feeling the
effects.
This brief background
is necessary to show that
the source of Elections-
related unrest comes from
one particular quarter. It is
helpful when we speak
about this issue we must
direct attention to the
source. For too long, some
sections like to cast the
blame on other elements
either out of fear or playing
the role of apologists of
the main Opposition.
We must ensure that
there is no repeat of pre
aA and post elections unrest.
The Government and
the security forces have
been addressing the issue of
pre- and post-Election security
as a matter of priority. Just
recently, President Jagdeo
alluded broadly to some of the
security arrangements at the
army's retreat. No doubt our
security forces would have and
are undergoing the necessary
preparations. There is not the
lack of exposure to and
awareness of the different
scenarios that can be played
out. The direction of the
potential of security threats
around elections time that
may emanate is known to
everyone.
The lessons of 1992, 1997
and 2001 Elections must not be
ignored. And the response of
our security forces in those
situations was generally
effective. These should be paid
close attention to and enhanced

where needed.
The population is steeled
in their resolve not to allow
fear and intimidation from
preventing them to exercise
their democratic rights.
However, an environment of
tension and fear helps no
one; whatever one's political
allegiance.
Pertinent questions being
asked are: Why do people have
to be more concerned about
security around Elections? Does
the PNCR leadership think that
it can win people over by using
fear and violence? The PNCR
leadership must answer these
questions. This type of
backward and confrontational
politics belongs to another era
and has no place in our modern
reality. Civil society and others
need to ensure that the authors
of Elections' unrest cease their
destructive behaviour this time
in the interest of our country


and people.
Successful free and fair
elections will testify to the
strength of our democracy.
Elections present an
opportunity for the expression
of a most fundamental and God-
given right to elect a
government of one's choice.
This right is best exercised in a
secured and safe environment.


The PPP/C
administration, as the
President has committed, will
not leave security to chance
and will ensure that our
upcoming Elections are free
and fair. Our security forces
must ensure, as they are
capable of doing, optimum
security is in place, during the
pre and post-Elections periods.

HOME
As suggested by the various
theories (James-Lange, Cannon-
Bard, Singer-Shachter), emo-
tions has first a survival value
- to protect the individual, to
"fight or flight" in the face of
danger. What causes fear, anger,
joy, etc. first begins at home.
When and where a mother fears
mice in the kitchen, her daugh-
ter will quickly show fear of
the same. This is true of iden-
tity development and the result-
ing emotional response with
any family member or care-giver.
Family get-together and outings
are always fun events. They do
not have to cost much but it
leaves the mundane and routine
of the kitchen and the home;
sustaining family identity and
bonding. Parents should help
cultivate such important emo-
tions as empathy which is the
true beginning of pro-social


behaviour. The home must also
take on the grounding of moral


emotions such as guilt, shame
and pride.
Play at home or at school
is an important aspect of
guiding and developing


healthy emotions. Play is
doing things that we enjoy for
its own sake, and not merely
to foster the role of the
competitive spirit. But even
adults free themselves in play
when there is nothing to
achieve. Even as we become
adults we talk of childhood
days and how playing games
were fun. Play teaches life
roles and identity playing
house. It extends love, caring
and sharing. It teaches
healthy competition and
cooperation, the rules and its
importance in group
behaviour the spirit of
winning, the agony of defeat,
all emotions felt and
expressed as children.
Because play is more
organised it has to be
controlled or appropriately

:,Understanding and guiding emotionalII I II /~ '!I I II


From page 10
expressed. Play involves singing and dancing with all levels
of skills and performances but these are imonntcts of
enjoyl'lent; nomnents created to make life more interesting
and enjoyable. Positive emotions are always preferred to
negative ones. This is why we go to the movies, comedy clubs,
etc. We spend much of our time and money on entertainment.

TEACHER
Like the home and school, the teacher and parents create
a warm and affectionate atmosphere. This can be readily done
through hugs and touching for assurance, while the children
are learning to communicate verbally and with physical con-
tact. We never truly outgrow the need for hugs. Hug therapy
in adult is still a popular form of reestablishing contact and
developing assurances. Each parent or teacher may have his
own way of showing affection; one may hug or kiss, another
may hold the face or lightly squeeze the hands. The teacher
should not be sparing in sharing compliments and let it spread
so that no child is felt left out. The school, as an extension of
the home, must continue in the development of such emotions
- joy, laughter and pride. Pride is not only in the family but
in one's achievement. In school there is need for emotional
regulation. What may be accepted or tolerated at home may
not be in the wider world of the school environment. By school
age they would have learned more about non-verbal cues and
to experience joy and love without the childhood excitement.
Some individuals are more subdued than others and a smile
is preferred to laughter.

THEORIES
There are three major acceptable theories of emotion The
James-Lange, the Cannon-Bard and the Singer-Schachter. These
theories are not contradictory but complementary and do help us
understand the different aspects of emotions as they function logi-
cally or psychologically.
(a) The James-Lange Theory, developed by the American Psy-
chologist William James and the Danish physiologist Lange in the
1880s, suggested that the body reacts to protect itself in an in-
stinctive manner. The thought process will follow to assess and
reassess the situation. The eye will blink or the body will become
tense at any fearful situation to get ready to fight or to go into
flight.
(b) The Cannon-Bard Theory was developed by American
Physiologists Walter Cannon and Philip Bard in the 1920s. They
believed that the body and mind interact almost simultaneously to
fear and anxiety. It is difficult to separate one emotion from an-
other. The adrenalin reacts to provide the body with greater strength
to fight or flight.
(c) The Schachter-Singer Theory was developed by Stanley
Schachter and J. Singer (1962) and suggests that fear comes from
two factors: first a physiological arousal and then an assessment of
the fear of threatening situations. An infant would not be afraid of
a tiger or a fierce dog. while an adult learns and thus knows the
danger of such objects or events. This last theory is learned
behaviour, while the first is more instinctive in nature.

PSYCHOPATHOLOGY
Emotion is a two-edge sword. In its positive aspects it can lead
to joy and happiness and to help live a life of ease and comfort.
On the other hand, it can become unhealthy and debilitating. Some
of these problems may begin with our biological make-up. Depres-
sion, for example, runs in families and has a biological predisposi-
tion. Chromosome #6 has been identified as responsible for depres-
sion. It is. however, precipitated and sustained by the environment.
Coping styles of children, identified about age three, can begin to
suggest psychopathology or mental illness. Children who tend to
cope with their anxieties by burying their feelings rather than
verbalising or acting out are more likely to become depressed child-
hood depression. School phobia is the refusal to go to school, to
leave the mother or the home or any "safe" environment, extreme
dependency on mother or mother's dependency on the child. A
number of metal disorders may result from emotional imbalances.
Space does not permit a full discussion here. Hyperactive allen-


lion deficit dtisoriders ;are those' who are fitldely iani uiinpiilsivCe ian
\who do notl slten or pa0 y aItteltioi. I'lh' condiuc disorders ;ire tIlose
who violate rules of hoine or school. Oppositionil defianl are those
who are defiant ;anll hostile, loosing their Iemipers ianid ;Lrguiing with
adults. l)isruiptive children f'requenly inltrrupt any ongoing activ-
ity. Sociopathly is where therre arc impaired social development,
very liuiltedl interesIs and social interaclions.

TREATMENT
In dealing with emotional problems in children, it is best to pre-
vent it where possible. Even when there is biological predisposi-
tion, constructive and healthy environment may delay or prevent
the precipitating conditions. When the problem is serious medica-
tion, hospitalisation or containment may be needed. For the hy-
peractive child some will suggest nutritional therapy such as haldol
or ritalin. Medication may be used but sparingly and with caution.
There are institutions that specialised in chronic or severe cases.
Autism, for example, is serious enough to require some special en-
vironment or care. Behaviour modification has been used with some
degree of success where children must earn their food. This is be-


cause coiiiiunication is difficult and limited. This type of lltcrapy
remains controversial. Behaviour therapy, cognilive/emolive thera-
pies have been successful in cases of conduct disorder. In the ab-
sence of these highly developed professional techniques and condi-
tions parents and teacher can he understanding and sympathetic to
Ihe child and the condition. Punishment is not the best solution.
I:amily therapy has proven useful as the family needs to under-
stand, to become involved, to become supportive.

CONCLUSION
Emotion as a significant aspect of human life is a bio-
logical determinant and can and should be cultivated. It
is said that the heart is more honest than the brain, that
feelings are much more realistic than thinking. This is
why children are more emotionally honest. It began with
the self-growing into maturity and extending into the
other self. To become aware of its existence, its process
of influencing other aspects of behaviour ensures a richer
life. While it can become an efficient servant, it may be
a destructive master.

$40M revolving loan


fund for teachers

President announces plan

to help them own homes
PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo has announced the establishment of a $40M revolving loan fund
for teachers countrywide.
The Government Information Agency (GINA) said he made the announcement while addressing
teachers Friday at the Kuru Kururu Primary School during a Cabinet Outreach to Region Four (Demerara/
Mahaica).
According to the agency, Mr. Jagdeo said the decision was made following discussions with offi-
cials of the Guyana Teachers Union (GTU) and the Ministry of Education.
"It is my desire that all teachers in this country own a home...that is why we are doing this," the
President said.
He said teachers can borrow as much as $1.5M for a small monthly repayment of $11,000, noting
that this is much less than most persons pay for rent.
He added that the government will also be assisting teachers with the acquisition of land to build
their homes.
The package offered to teachers is in addition to $17B spent annually on education delivery coun-
trywide, GINA said.
A $245M Primary school is under construction at Wisroc in Linden while another costing $345M
is being constructed at Bartica in Region Seven (Cuyuni/Mazaruni), the agency reported.
It reported that at the Friday meeting, requests were made for duty free concessions for long ser-
vice employees of the Education Ministry.
The Head-of-State said the Government is considering a proposal for a limited number of teachers
to be granted the concession annually.
Issues surfaced relating to wages and salaries increases but the President said these had to be nego-
tiated at another level.
GINA said he also committed to the construction of a Primary school in Yarowkabra in
addition to providing $500,000 for the construction of a fence for the Primary and Nursery
schools in Kuru Kururu.

programme


SEVERAL activities have
been arranged by the govern-
ment and religious
organizations for youths dur-
ing the August vacation to
help them become more gain-
fully occupied.
In the coming weeks youths
will be exposed to art classes ,
swimming lessons and a series
of youth camps, all organised
by the Ministry of Culture,
Youth and Sport, according to
the Government Information
Agency (GINA).
Already several youths are
participating in work study
programmes at various govern-
ment agencies and private
organizations and this is being
organised by the Ministry of
Education.
The programme, in its 31st
year of existence, aims to pre-
pare youths for the world of
work. It was piloted in 1975
following a study done on after
school initiatives for youth.
It hinges on a policy docu-
ment which was formulated for
a work study programme for


students who have completed
secondary education.
GINA noted that the
programme was initially
organised for community high
school students but has now
been extended to all secondary
schools in Guyana.
Under the scheme, students
serve for a period of five weeks
at various government and pri-
vate organizations. During the
course supervisors from the
Ministry of Education visit the
students to monitor their per-
formance.
The work study
programme aims to provide
youths with on-the-job expe-
rience in the professional en-
vironment and helps them
develop a sense of career
assertiveness.
At the National Communi-
cations Network (NCN) stu-

By William Weir, The

MUSIC has charms to soothe
the savage breast. So says
William Congreve, who ap-
parently never worked in an
office full of cell phones and
their many ring tones.
According to a survey by
Randstad USA, a staffing and
work-force management com-
pany, 30 per cent of employees
say the ringing of their co-work-
ers' cell phones is their greatest
annoyance of the workday.
Really? It's one thing when
a cell phone goes off inside a
movie theatre (many have hailed
the New York city ordinance
that slaps a $50 fine on anyone
whose cell phone rings at mov-
ies and public performances),
but aren't workplaces expected
to buzz with various sounds
and activities?
Considering all the sounds
we encounter in a typical day -


clacking keyboards, conversa-
tions, traditional telephones -
what is it about a ringing cell
phone that jars us so?
Diana Deutsch and Trevor
Henthorn, researchers in the
psychology department at
University of California, San
Diego, wonder if the so-called
"earworm effect" is the cul-
prit.
Unlike the typical "brrring!"
of the conventional phone, the
song snippets of many ring
tones insidiously wend their
way into our heads. That's good
for the phones' owners, who
immediately can identify it as
their personal ring. That's bad
for everyone within earshot,
now left with 'Ice Ice Baby'
playing on a continuous loop in
their heads.
"The more musical the
snippet, the worse it should
be," Deutsch says. "It's sort

ON ERECTING

NEW BUILDINGS

AND ALTERING

EXISTING ONES IN

GEORGETOWN

FROM THE DESK OF THE PUBLIC
RELATIONS OFFICER CITY HALL

CITIZENS,: there are a number of important things which
you must take into account when planning to build or
renovate your house.
These are clearly stated in the law, Chapter 28:01 and should
be strictly followed by all building contractors.
First, no, person who is desirous of building should begin
any such operation in the city without the appropriate appli-
cation to the' City Engineer. Application forms are available at
the City Engineer's Department, City Hall Compound.
Second, those who intend to erect a new building or alter
or add to any existing building, or do any structural works to
any building, must submit the application with three copies of
a plan of the new building or of the alterations or additions, to
the existing building or of the structural work for approval by
the City Engineer.

Citizens should note the following.-
The approval by the City Engineer of a plan shall be in
writing at the foot of the plan approved; no other official or
person has the authority to give permission to anyone to erect
a new building or alter or add to any existing building, or, in
fact, to do any structural works to any building, in Georgetown.
The plan must state the purpose for which the building
is intended to be used.
It must be drawn in ink on the appropriate material, draw-
ing paper or tracing linen of good quality and must be drawn to
scale. For example,
a) Floor:plans and elevations drawn to the 1/8 scale which
is 1" on plan represents 8'0" on the ground.
b) Site plans drawn to the 1/16 scale which is 1" on plan
represents 16'0" on the ground.
The plan should show the ground position and outline of
the new building, the elevation and dimensions thereof and the
distances of the walls from the boundary lines of that land, on
which it is proposed to erect the same, and from every other
building or erection, on the land. In the case of a new building
of several storeys, it shall give particulars of every storey
thereof.
The plan must show the position and dimensions of ev-
ery water closet, drain or other house connection on that land.
In the case of alterations or additions to an existing build-
ing, the plan must show the position, outline and dimensions
of every part of the alterations or additions intended to be made
to the existing building and comply with the afore-mentioned
requirements. The existing portion of the building must also be
shown to relate existing building with the new addition and/or
alteration.
The plan should show any other reasonable particulars
required by the City Engineer.
The City Engineer shall, within reasonable time after he re-
ceives the plan, signify in writing his approval or disapproval
of the building operations to the person proposing to execute
same.
Next week, we will discuss seven steps to commence build-
ing operations.
If you have any questions or clarification on any issue af-
fecting the city, please write to:

second choice would he a
repeating up-down glissando a
rapid series of low-to-high notes
-which stimulates more
neuronal activity in the auditory
system than steady tones.
"Also, if I wanted it to be
really annoying, I'd make the
glissando as close to a police or
ambulance siren as possible, so
as to set off alarming associa-
tions that could last for hours,"


shlcsays in an e-mail.
Perhaps cell phone sounds
are still so new and varied that
we've yet to absorb them into
our mental vocabulary of every-
day sounds, so they simply
don't blend into our environment.
And with their electronic beeps
not found in nature, maybe these
tones shock our senses on an un-
conscious level that ambient or-
ganic sounds don't.
Etiquette expert Jacqueline
Whitmore says it might be sim-
pler: We just haven't learned to
use them properly. People of-
ten will go to lunch or to make


copies and absentminided leave-
their cell phones at their desks.
"I'm finding that people
bring their cell phones to
work because this is their life-
line to their home and to
their family," says Whitmore,
who has the singular job title
of 'national wireless eti-
quette spokesperson' for
Sprint. "Where the problem
lies is that people are forget-
ting to put them on silent or
vibrate mode."

'Journalists must act as


agents of change'


By Anthony Selmah (UNDP Liberia)


LIBERIAN journalists need a new attitude toward their prac-
tice, one which highlights development issues and helps to
undergird the peace process.
This was the challenge put forth by. CNN Inside Africa host
Femi Oke and CNN producer Bill Burke at a media forum arranged
by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Liberia.
Oke, who was visiting Liberia for the second time, illustrated
how using adjectives such as "war-torn" to describe Liberia serves
only to refresh memories of war and destruction. She suggested con-
vening a national conference to develop a national communication
strategy that will focus on supporting the new government's de-
velopment initiatives.
"Journalists must see themselves and act as agents of devel-
opment," she said.
Originally part of a UNDP-hosted delegation of journalists who
visited Liberia in October 2005 to cover the presidential elections,
Oke became inspired to contribute to the development of Liberian
journalists after witnessing first-hand the close cooperation between
UNDP and its Liberian clients and the need for Liberia's journal-
ists to reorient their style after 14 years of reporting on civil war.
Her colleague Burke called for a review of the'act establishing
the Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS), the state-owned national
broadcasting station. He said transforming LBS from a perceived
instrument of government propaganda into a public broadcasting
network to promote development would be a step in the right di-
rection, confirming the network's relevance in a rapidly changing
environment. Liberia has recently seen an upsurge of community
radio stations across the country.
"There is a need to develop a long-term training programme
that will set the ethics and standards needed to transform journal-
ism in Liberia," Burke concluded.
UNDP Liberia Country Director Steven A. Ursino described
the media forum as an'excellent example of.UNDP's efforts to pro-
mote good practices by partnering with individuals and organizations
with a proven track record of success. He added that UNDP in-
tends to work with other partners to help improve the skills and

HIS parents abandoned him
as a baby, possibly because he
suffered from sickle cell
anaemia and doctors had
given him only a few days to
live.
But Rawley Frisco Wilson
has defied that diagnosis, and af-
ter spending long periods in hos-
pital is today, a 22-year-old who
wants a chance to make a living
as an artist.
Wilson was diagnosed with
sickle cell disease at birth and he
grew up with an elderly aunt un-
til she passed away two years
ago.
The young man currently
resides at Lot 645 East
Ruimveldt, Back Road,
Georgetown with the Welfare

Cell Disea
Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood diso

When sickle-shaped cells block small blood vessels, less bloo

what causes the complications of sickle cell disease. There is cur
sickle cell disease.
Haemoglobin is the main substance of the red blood cell. It

People with sickle cell conditions make a different form of haei

Types of Sickle Cell Disease
There are several types of sickle cell disease. The most comm
(SS), Sickle-Haemoglobin C Disease (SC)
Sickle Beta-Plus Thalassemia and Sickle Beta-Zero Thalassemia.
Inheritance
Sickle cell conditions are inherited from parents in much the s
colour and texture, eye colour and other physical traits. The typ
makes in the red blood cells depend upon what haemoglobin genes
or her parents. Like most genes, haemoglobin genes are inherited

Examples:

When both parents have Sickle Cell Trait, they have a 25 per cei
baby with sickle cell disease with each pregnancy.
Treatment
Health maintenance for patients with sickle cell disease starts
ably in the newborn period and includes penicillin prophylaxis, vac
cus bacteria and folic acid supplementation.
Treatment of complications often includes antibiotics, pain mar

"I later found out that my
mother and siblings left me as a
baby and I heard that my father
is somewhere in the country and
1 grew up not knowing them and
why they abandoned me," he
said.
Between bouts of illness,
Wilson attended the Burrowes
School of Art in the city where
he displayed a very keen inter-
est in painting, tie-dye, ceram-
ics, and batik.
Obviously a gifted artist,
Wilson can take one look at you
and produce a very good like-
ness.
When he is not hospitalized,
he paints and decorates t-shirts.
He even tried selling them for a
living but business is usually
slow and cannot sustain him.

in life, Wilson said he wants a
steady job so he can provide for
himself and he would enjoy do-
ing the work lie likes.
"No one will want to em-
ploy me because I am sick, but
I am well sometimes and I
work hard. I just need a break
in life," Wilson said almost in
tears.
For the time being, Wilson is
happy to be alive but longs to
be a part of his biological family
whom he is willing to meet.
But his adopted family is
very good to him and he is very
grateful that they choose to sup-
port him and treat him as part
of their family.
"I am quite happy that I am
still alive and hoping that I can
get well and be independent and
can help the family that I am liv-
ing with," Wilson said.
He also prepared the manu-
script for Ms. Pearl Lewis, an
author of children's books a year
ago and she said his work was
excellent.
Ms. Lewis told the Sunday
Chronicle that even when she
first met him a few years ago at
Burrowes School of Art she im-
mediately knew he had a lot of
raw talent.
She is, however, concerned
that he has so much talent but
no pennanent job and even when
he makes ceramics and other ar-
ticles, they do not sell quickly
and most craft shops are. very
slow to make a big order and
support Wilson.
Wilson added that he has ap-
proached the craft shops on
more than one occasion, but
they were very reluctant to place
an order.
He is willing to work hard
and has offered anyone who is
willing to employ him to have
a look at his creations.

The Average Old Age Pension And Its Relationship To The Maximum And Minimum Pensions


The Average Old Age Pension And Its Relationship To The
MaximumAnd Minimum Pensions:

In the previous article the minimum and maximum amounts paid
by National Insurance Scheme as Old Age Pensions were
explained.

The minimum pension was said to be the least amount that a
person could receive as an Old Age Pension. That amount is fixed
at approximately fifty percent the minimum wage in the Public
Service. It was explained that since the minimum wage in the
Public Service changes, the minimum pensions would also
undergo corresponding changes.

The maximum pension was said to be the greatest amount that a
person could receive as an old age pension in any given period.

That amount it was explained was directly related to the maximum
amount of income on which contributions could be paid by anyone
in a given period. That amount which is known as the Insurable
Earnings Ceiling is also directly related to the minimum wage in the
Public Service. It is given as approximately four (4) times that
minimum wage.

Most of the pensions that are in payment now are at the minimum
amount. The present minimum is $12,700 per month and
approximately eighty percent of the pensions are at that amount.

Persons pay contributions based on their earnings. Most persons
earn salaries that are below the Insurable Earnings Ceiling and
therefore would pay contributions on their actual salaries.

In order to have a true picture of the amount of pension persons
become entitled to annually, the average earnings of persons over
the years should be used in the calculations.

According to the data available, the Scheme earned an average
monthly salary of approximately $36,415 in 2005. That average
salary which moved from $10,311 in 1994 to $36,415 in 2005 is
shown in the column 3 of the table below:
Minimum, Average And Maximum Pension Amounts
1994-2005


Using that average salary, the average monthly pension which
would have been paid over the period 1994 to 2005 was calculated
and is shown in Column 4 of the table. The column 5 of the table
gives the maximum amount of pension paid overthe period.


As would be seen from the columns 4 and 5 of the table the
average pension was significant less than that of the maximum
pension and also significantly greater than the minimum pension.


An examination of the table shows that the average pension paid
in 1999 was $11,359 which was 1 2 times the minimum pension in
that year of $7,500.


The person who would have received the average pension in 1999
would have received annual increases over the years. That person
would be receiving a pension today after including all the
increases which were awarded between 1999 and 2006 just
above $12,700 which is the present minimum pension.


A person who received the average pension in 1998 of $9,618
would have received a pension which was approximately 1.8 times
that of the minimum pension. That person's pension however, after
being subject to all the increases from 1998 to present would be
less than the amount of $12,700 hence that person would in 2006
be receiving the minimum pension of $12,700.


Since most persons would fall in the average earnings group and
that group is significantly below the maximum earnings that are
insured by National Insurance Scheme, the pension most persons
will receive would be significantly below the maximum pension
payable.

FIFA World Cup


BERLIN, Germany
(Reuters) The winners of
today's World Cup final
between Italy and France
will receive the world's
most coveted sporting
prize. Following are five
facts about the trophy.
The FIFA World Cup
Trophy was designed by Italian


artist Silvio Gazzaniga, who was
born in 1921. His design was
chosen from 53 entries. The
36.8cm high trophy is made of
18-carat gold and weighs 6.175
kilos.
The trophy was first
presented to the 1974 World
Cup winning captain, Franz
Beckenbauer of West


Germany. It replaced the
original Jules Rimet Trophy,
which was won outright by
Brazil when they became
world champions for the
third time in 1970.
The new trophy cannot
be won outright, according to
new FIFA rules. The winners
keep it until the next

Fernandes and


Jeffrey return to


GT&T squash finals

ROBERT Fernandes and Denise Jeffrey returned to the
finals of the GT&T National senior squash championships.
with two favourites going down in the Men's Open
semifinals on Friday night at Georgetown Club.
Fernandes knocked out last year's runner-up Julian Chin in
straight games 9-5, 9-1, 9-6 while Ryan Farnum triumphed over
National Under-19 champion Kristian Jeffrey after dropping the
first game 6-9 and eventually winning three straight 9-6. 9-3. 9-
7.
Both Fernandes and Farnum will be looking for their
first senior title. Fernandes invariably ended runner-up to
Shawn Badrinath in previous years.
In the Ladies' Open, Denise Jeffrey scolded niece Kristina
King with a straight-games 9-6, 9-7, 9-5.
Defending champion Kathy Shuffler needed all five games
to defeat Chantelle Fernandes 5-9, 9-6, 5-9, 9-7, 9-7.
Those two victories set up a final between the two sisters,
like a few years ago, before former champion Denise withdrew
from active squash for two years because of injury.
The finals, including the plates, were due to take place
last evening at the same venue.


India to host 2011


World Cup final


KARACHI, Pakistan (Reuters) India will host the final
of the 2011 World Cup with the opening ceremony to be
held in Bangladesh, a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official
said yesterday.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has awarded the
hosting rights to India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
"It has been decided in a meeting of all four boards in
London that all four should evenly play a part in hosting major
events of the tournament," PCB Director Abbas Zaidi told
Reuters.
"It is decided that India will host the final while the
semi-finals would be held in Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Bangladesh has been given the opening ceremony."
India is due to host 22 matches, with Pakistan holding 16,
Sri Lanka nine and Bangladesh six.
The 2007 World Cup will be held in West Indies.
Meannn while, Zaidi also said former Indian skipper Sunil
Gavaskar had only been given a one-year extension to his
position as chairman of the ICC's powerful cricket
committee.
"The move was to retain him for another three years but
he has been given an extension only for one year as we feel
other countries should get a chance," said Zaidi.
Pakistan had nominated their former Test captain Majid
Khan to replace Gavaskar, saying they were dissatisfied with
some of the committee's recent decisions.
Pakistan led opposition to the committee's
recommendation that would allow players to make three
appeals per innings to a third umpire.

version.
Samaroo was the first to
reach the try line when the
match was 12 minutes old. Cen-
tre Seales passed the ball to
stand-off Peabo Hanilton who
found full-back Samaroo and he
raced to the right of the south-
ern goal to down the ball. The
conversion was no good.
The second try finished a
beautiful piece of passing that
started from a scrum at the ten-
metre line at the right wing.
Sales received the ball at the
end of the line after a series of
well coordinated passes along
the line. He raced from the 22-
metre line for the try in the 17th
minute. Again Samaroo was not
successful with the conversion.
About half-an-hour into the
game, Prowell powered his way
from the 22-metre line for the
third try. Guyana had a penalty
there and he collected -the ball,
charging head down to the try
line. Samaroo was successful
with conversion this time for
the full seven points and
Guyana led 17-0 at halftime.
However,just before the break,
Guyana had to substitute outside
centre Dane Parks who injured his
right lfot after stepping in a hole.
Seven minutes after the re-
sumption. Prowell was again in the
try area. He collected the ball from
a Barbados throw-in about three
metres from the try line and lounged
forward to get the try.
Shortly after, Barbados:
changed one of their wing
'forwards and about 15 min-
utes :from regulation time,
they reached to .about two
metres from the try line the
,closest they got. It came after
a kick, with Samaroo catch-
ing the ball but losing hold
of it. After two scrums close
to the try line, Guyana es-
caped with a free kick.
Guyana changed inside cen-


tre Scales with Trevon Inglis,
with seven minutes left in the
match. Two minutes, Keiler
sealed the match with the final
try. From a scrum about three
metres from the line, Hamilton
passed the ball to Keiler and he
raced home for the try.
Earlier, Vasquez gave the
Cayman Islands the opening try
against Jamaica, but Walker ne-
gated the lead with a try of his
own and the match was dead-
locked 5-5 at halftime.
In the second half, Ja-
maica registered two more
tries through Thomas and
Bedwood, with Tapper mak-
ing good the conversions.
St Lucia did not make it for the
opening and president of the
Guyana Rugby Football Union,
Noel Adonis, told Chronicle Sport
that it was unlikely that they would
arrive, so two matches would now
be played on each play day.
The next play day is tomor-
row and Barbados will be back
on the field of play to meet
Trinidad & Tobago from 14:30
h and in the second match, the
USA will take on the Cayman
Islauns from 16:00 ih.

Mauresmo conquers mind and Henin to win Wimbledon crown


By Bill Barclay

LONDON, England
(Reuters) Amelie
Mauresmo found an oasis of
mental calm amid the hul-
labaloo of a Wimbledon final
yesterday to prove at last
that she has the composure
required to win a grand slam
title.
The 27-year-old, whose
nerves have so often betrayed
her on the big occasion, held
her mind and body together to
defeat Belgium's Justine Henin-
Hardenne 2-6,'6-3, 6-4 and be-
come France's first Wimbledon
women's champion for 81
years.
"I don't want anybody to


talk about my nerves anymore,"
said the world number one as she
hugged the Venus Rosewater
Dish, her eyes pink with emo-
tion.
"1 really, definitely wanted
this win today. It's a great mo-
ment for me. This trophy is very
special in the world of tennis."
Seconds earlier she had
slumped Bjorn Borg-like to
her knees and covered her
face with her hands when
Henin-Hardenne netted a
forehand on match point.
Mauresmo's win was a re-
peat of her Australian Open fi-
nal victory over the Belgian in
January but the manner of it was
far more satisfying.
Then Henin-Hardenne retired
m'r

with a stomach upset when
trailing by a set and 2-0, leav-
ing Mauresmo to pick up her
first grand slam title with a
sense of anti-climax.
It is an indication of
Mauresmo's brittle reputation
that, even though she was the
top seed and world number one,
she did not start the final as
favourite.
Henin-Hardenne retained
her French Open title last
month without dropping a set
and had not dropped one en
route to her second Wimbledon
final, where she was attempting
to complete her full set of grand
slam titles.
The Belgian was quicker
into her stride in the
francophone showdown and
her serves and volleys held
up better than Mauresmo's
in a billowing wind on Cen-
tre Court.
A break in the first game
was secured with a backhand
volley and Henin-Hardenne
never relinquished control. She
took the set with an ace with
Mauresmo, three times a losing
Wimbledon semi-finalist, seem-
ingly destined for another dis-
appointment.
The Frenchwoman sur-
vived a mid-match crisis in her
semni-final against Russian Maria
Sharapova, though, and she
galvanised into action quickly.
screaming, "Allez!" as she held
to love at the start of the sec-
ond set.


Mauresmo broke serve in
the next game and, even though
Henin-Hardenne recovered with
a break back for 4-3, Mauresmo
immediately responded in kind,
leaving Henin-Hardenne rapping
the court in anger with her
racquet.
Serving at 5-3 Mauresmo
still had to save three break
points before an ace brought her
parity in the match.

ROSE MAJESTICALLY
The momentum was hers
now and Mauresmo expertly
drew the sting from Henin-
Hardenne in the decider, forcing
the Belgian to strive too hard for
her winners, just as Sharapova
had in the semi-finals.
Successive errors gave
Mauresmo a break for 2-1 and
as victory beckoned with each
passing hold of serve, her con-
centration did not flicker.
When the biggest service
game of her life arrived at 5-
4, Mauresmo rose majesti-
cally to the occasion. Two aces
helped her to 30-15 and a text-
book serve followed by a back-
hand volley brought her
match point.
The wind jagged her first


ball toss but even then, as the
enthralled crowd giggled ner-
vously, Mauresmo remained a
picture of composure.
She simply reset herself, ig-
nored a first serve fault and
found her mark to prompt the
forehand error from Henin-
Hardenne that ended the con-
test.
"She just played better
than I. She was just too good
for me today," said Henin-
Hardenne. "The match


turned completely sour in the
third set. I wasn't fresh
enough and she was more
solid than me."
Suzanne Lenglen was the
last Frenchwoman to win
Wimbledon in 1925 and she
has one of the French Open
showcourts named in her
honour. Mauresmo will not
be afforded that distinction at
Wimbledon, but yesterday
Centre Court belonged en-
tirely to her.

World Cup final today...



All eyes on Berlin




for judgement day
j d-go.


By Mitch Phillips
BERLIN, Germany (Reuters)
- After more than two years
of competition featuring 194
teams, 910 games and more
than 2 600 goals, the World
Cup will be decided today
with either Italy crowned
champions for the fourth
time or France for the sec-
ond.
A billion people will turn their
attention to Berlin's
Olympiastadion where two teams
drenched in Word Cup history will
do battle in the 18th final.
The match has left book-
makers divided but is littered
with fascinating sub-plots that
fans of each side can cling to in
the desperate hope that they
are fated to triumph.
For France it is the oppor-
tunity to complete the circle of
recovery after they were
knocked out after the first round
without scoring a goal four
years ago.
Striker Thierry Henry's
frustration goes back even
further as he seeks to banish
the bitter-sweet memories of
1998 when he watched the fi-


nal from the bench as France
triumphed 3-0 over Brazil.
And there is Zinedine
Zidane, who retires after the
match with his reputation as one


of the game's greats long-assured
but who craves the ultimate
leaving gift.
Italy go into the game under
the cloud of the domestic
match-fixing scandal which
might yet see half the squad
playing second division football
next month but which has also
helped mould them into a for-


midably spirited unit.
2000 REVENGE
They are also seeking re-
venge for the agony of the 2000
European Championship when
the title seemed theirs before
France snatched an injury-time
equaliser then won it with
David Trezeguet's golden goal.
While Zidane's departure
seems to demand victory, Italy
can point to a similarly neat
and equally deserved last page
scenario that would see their
superb captain Fabio Cannavaro
lifting the trophy on the occa-
sion of his 100th international
appearance.
However, all the histori-
cal twists will be forgotten to-
day when the destination of
the trophy will be decided not
according to some grand de-
sign but more likely by a mo-
ment of inspiration or a fa-
tal loss of concentration.
It seems certain that the
match will be in keeping with
the rest of the tournament as a
cagey affair with little likelihood
of a feast of goals.
That was certainly the case
in their last World Cup meeting


ERC NOTICE










The Ethnic Relations Commission has received a complaint from the Executive
Committee, Campaign for Justice in Guyana, JIG/UK alleging that the book "Indians
Betrayed"

1. "...falsely and maliciously portrays African Guyanese as a degenerate and
criminal race in Guyana by selectively appropriating news reports about crime in
Guyana

2. ...is an incitement to racial hatred and racial violence against Afro Guyanese by
portraying Indo Guyanese as a community in clear and present danger of moral
attacks byAfro Guyanese

3. ...is deliberately insulting and derogatory of (sic) Afro Guyanese in a way which
... constitutes a breach of Guyana's race laws"
It is the desire of the Commission to deal with this matter. It has, therefore, decided to hold
a public hearing on the complaint; and as a consequence extends an invitation to
interested parties and individuals-
1) To submit written submissions on the matter on or before Friday September 22,
2006
2) To indicate in writing no later than Friday September 15, 2006 their desire to
appear before the Commission to give evidence in the matter

in the 1998 quarter-finals when
France advanced on penalties af-
ter a goalless draw.
GREY EDGE
Five of the side who played in
that game and went on to win the
trophy and then beat the Italians
again in the Euro 2000 final are in
the squad today Fabien Barthez,
Lilian Thuram, Trezeguet, Henry
and Zidane but only Cannavaro and
Alessandro del Piero survive for
Italy.
The grey edge to the French
side was one of the reasons so
few people gave them a chance
in this competition but they
have countered the critics with
performances of increasing con-
fidence as they dispatched
Spain, Brazil and Portugal.
Italy, too, have every rea-
son to back themselves.
Their superb defence, fight-
ing spirit and a coolness in

front of goal that has pro-
duced 10 different scorers of
11 goals, took them deserv-
edly past Australia, Ukraine
and Germany.
Both sides are littered with
potential match-winners and
both have experienced players
highly qualified in the art of
stopping such performers.
Can Zidane possibly match
his two-goal heroics of the 1998
final, can Henry deliver one of
his special moments or can new
boy Franck Ribery complete a
dream tournament by scoring in
the final?
Conversely can Luca Toni
follow in the footsteps of 1982
hero Paolo Rossi, will Andrea
Pirlo net one his sumptuous free

Schweinsteiger


takes Germany


to third spot
By Brian Homewood

STUTTGART, Germany (Reuters) Midfielder
Bastian Schweinsteiger scored two goals and
forced the other as World Cup hosts Germany
beat Portugal 3-1 to claim third place yester-
day.
Schweinsteiger fired home his first goal of the competition
from long range in the 56th minute to put Germany ahead.
Five minutes later, a Schweinsteiger free kick was deflected
into his own net by Portugal midfielder Petit, a halftime sub-
stitute.
Schweinsteiger added a third with a similar effort to
his first in the 78th minute, the ball flying into the top
right corner.
Substitute Luis Figo created Portugal's consolation,
crossing perfectly from the right for Nuno Gomes to head
home from close range two minutes from time.
Both sides had chances in an evenly balanced first half
after Portugal surprisingly left captain Figo out of the
starting line-up and Germany made six changes to their
team.
Germany midfielder Sebastian Kehl saw his shot deflected
narrowly wide in the fifth minute and then produced a 25-metre
chip which back-pedalling goalkeeper Ricardo did well to tip
over.
Ricardo also turned away a pile-driver shot from Lukas
Podolski following a free kick.

EXCELLENT CHANCE
At the other end, Germany goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, mak-
ing his first appearance at the World Cup after being relegated
to the bench for the serious part of the tournament, denied
Pauleta in the 15th minute.
Pauleta was sent dean through by Simao Sabrosa's
pass but Kahn rushed out of his goal to block the Portugal
striker's side-footed effort.
Pauleta, who has managed only one goal, also wasted
an excellent chance in the 53rd minute when he shot
weakly at Kahn with Ronaldo free and screaming for the
ball to his left.
In the 56th minute, Schweinsteiger broke the deadlock as
he skipped past two challenges and scored with a screaming
30-metre shot as the flight of the ball appeared to deceive
Ricardo.
Five minutes later Germany won a free kick on the left
and another Schweinsteiger rocket was deflected into the net
by the hapless Petit
Germany striker Miroslav Klose, the tournament's leading
scorer with five goals, was substituted in the 71st minute with-
out adding to his tally.
Figo, whose international future is the subject of specu-
lation at the age of 33. came on for Pauleta in the 77th
minute.
He had barely come on to the pitch when
Schweinsteiger struck again to add further fuel to the Ger-
man party mood which was barely dampened by Gomes's
late diving head.

NSC head wants school base for rugby expanded


AS GUYANA began hosting
the Under-19 World Cup
qualifying series and the West
Indies Under-18 champion-
ships, the National Sports
Commission (NSC) head has
challenged the local govern-
ing body to expand the school
base for the sport.


NSC chairman Conrad
Plummer deputised for Minis-
ter of Sport, Anthony Xavier,
at the opening ceremony at the
National Park yesterday.
Plummer offered apologies
for the minister's absence and
that of the Director of Sport
Neil Kumar.


He congratulated the
Guyana Rugby Football Union
(GRFU) for the progress made
in the sport which he said was
significant.
"But I want to challenge the
GRFU to open a special schools
tournament like the Coca Cola
football championship that at-


traced some 87 schools."
President of the North
America & West Indies Rugby
Association (NAWIRA), Chris-
topher Nascimento, declared
that the GRFU had done a "mag-
nificent job" in preparing the
ground for the championships.
"A few weeks ago, the
ground was under water and
was totally unplayable."
Nascimento, who is also the
president of the West Indies


Rugby Union (WIRU) pointed
out that the present tournament
was the only one in Guyana,
from which the winner would go
straight to a World Cup finals.
GRFU president Noel Ado-
nis said the organizers benefited
from support by a number of
people and the opening cer-
emony was to acknowledge
them. He, also, urged the teams
to play within the established
spirit of the game.


Deputy General Manager of
sponsor Guyana Telephone &
Telegraph Company (GT&T),
Terry Holder, said the company
believed in connecting people
and bringing countries together.
The visiting teams are
Barbados, the Cayman Is-
lands who refused to go on
parade, Jamaica, Trinidad &
Tobago and the USA. St Lucia
had not arrived for the open-
ing day. (Isaiah Chappelle)

DOWN two goals, hosts
Berhice bounced back to se-
cure a 2-2 draw with the East
Coast Demerara in the Pepsi
Cup National Under-17 In-
ter-association football cham-
pionship at Burnham Park,
New Amsterdam, on Friday.
And at the Uitvlugt Com-
munity Centre ground on the
same day, Bartica inflicted a 4-
1 whipping on hosts West
Demerara.
Former National Under-15
captain Sherlon Edwards hit a
double for Berbice's comeback,
negating East Coast's goals from
Derick Hatton and Giovanni
Leitch.
But Edwards was twice
sinner, missing two early sit-
ters, the first when the game
was just five minutes old. In
the most glaring one, he faced
the goal alone and his shot
hit the upright, got the re-
bound but fired outside the
goal.
Then in the 12th minute
Hatton broke away and faced
goalkeeper Jamal Porter
alone, who fouled the striker
in the box. Hatton took the
penalty himself and con-
verted from the spot.
Six minutes later, East
Coast were again in the
southern net. From a left cor-
ner, Leitch produced a super
head-shot to beat the goal-
keeper for the second goal.

Jumaul Joseph.
Berbice began making in-
roads into the East Coast half

the 39th minute started the
comeback. They attacked down
the centre, sent the ball to the
left, a cross followed and as
goalkeeper Tyrone Liverpool
advanced. Edwards pushed the
ball past him. At halftime. East
Coast led 2-1.
Berbice were more com-
posed in the second half, es-
pecially with the injection of
Deylon Faria in midfield and
the play-maker began creat-
ing the build-ups and 16 min-
utes in, they got the equaliser.
Edwards received the ball
on the right wing, carried the
ball to the top of the box,
looked to send the cross but
the traffic was congested
with Berbice defenders. He
moved more to the centre,
and sent a super left-footer,
beating Liverpool for the
equaliser in the 61st minute.
With that draw, Berbice
climbed to the top of Group B

Demerara are second with two

Coach Laurie Adonis told
Chronicle Sport that the

with a touch up in some ar-

"It could have been more

Adonis said work would

"Barbados scrapped more

By Lisa Richwine

WASHINGTON (Reuters) A daily glass of pomegranate juice
showed potential for slowing the growth of prostate cancer in
a small study but more evidence is needed before doctors rec-
ommend it, U.S. scientists said yesterday.
A study funded by a juice maker found men who drank the beverage
had a longer time until doubling of their blood levels of PSA a protein
that indicates the presence of prostate cancer. Patients with short doubling
times are more likely to die fromthe cancer.
In the study, the time until PSA doubling after treatment ex-
tended to 54 months on average when the men started drinking eight
ounces of pomegranate juice a day. Before drinking the juice, PSA
doubled in an average of 15 months.
"That's a very big difference. ... It's an indicator of how quickly.
the cancer is growing," said Dr. Allan Pantuck, a urologist at UCLA
Jonsson Cancer Center and the study's lead author.
Each of the 50 men who took part had radiation, surgery or
other treatment for prostate cancer before enrolling in the study.

No major side effects were
reported from drinking the .
juice.
"It's too early to tell
people with prostate cancer they should drink pomegranate juice"
because the evidence is preliminary, Pantuck said in an interview.
A larger study is under way to try to confirm the findings, with
results expected in two years, he said.
While he does not expect pomegranate juice to cure prostate
cancer, Pantuck said it could delay or prevent the need for other
therapies with harsh side effects including hot flashes, fatigue, de-
pression and impotence.
Pomegranate juice "is a very non-toxic treatment that, if it re-
ally did have that effect on doubling time, could prevent many
people from going on to metastatic disease and hopefully from dy-
ing of prostate cancer," he said.
The research team said substances known as polyphenols or
other ingredients in the fruit juice may be able to fight prostate can-
cer, but exactly how is unclear. The benefits probably come from a
combination of ingredients, they said.
The findings were published in the peer-reviewed journal
Clinical Cancer Research and funded by a trust established
by the owners of Pom Wonderful, a brand of pomegranate juice.
Pom Wonderful supplied the juice used in the study.

Lifestyle trumps

drugs for a healthy

heart- study
By Amanda Beck
WASHINGTON (Reuters) Even men who take medication
for high blood pressure or cholesterol can dramatically cut
their risk or heart disease by adopting a healthy lifestyle,
U.S. researchers reported last week.
SMiddle-aged men on these medications can reduce their chances
of heart problems by 57 per cent by eating right, not smoking,
drinking in moderation and maintaining a healthy weight while
exercising regularly, the researchers said.
Those who do nor rake the drugs can'cut their risk of heart
ailments by 87 per cent if they adopt.these. lifestyle choices.
"This shows there's no substitute for a healthy lifestyle," said
Stephanie Chluve, lead author of the study to be published in Cir-
culation. Journal of The American Heart Association.
The study tracked 43.000 men between 40 and 75 who were
free of diabetes. heart disease and other chronic conditions ,hen
the study began in 1986. They completed biannual questionnaires
and researchers used the data to tease out correlations between
Shea disease and lifestyle habits
The benefits of the healthy habits were apparent even
1t they were adopted over time.
I "In other word. it's never, too late to;change," said Chru\e
".Yo can-sildl achieve benefit itf sou make' change; in middle age

' -Men with thd lowest risk of heart disease were those
whd practiced all five healthy habits, but not smoking alone
reduced the risk of heart problems by 50 per cent. she said.

As a little girl I dreamed of marrying a professional
football player. They invoke a protective quality I
missed out on because of my relationship with my fa-
ther. Last month I believed I was on the way to having
my dream come true.
When I went for dinner and drinks with my cousin, we were
approached by a security guard who said this football player
wanted to meet me. I was excited and quickly obliged the re-
quest. That week we spent hours together going to lunch, din-
ner, a bar, and even a walk in the park.
The night before he left town I spent the night with him.
He was a complete gentleman, and I remained a lady at all times
so nothing happened. The next day he asked if I would visit
him, and I said sure. Later that evening he asked me to meet
him at the airport.
I could not because of a family function, but I asked him to
let me know if he got home safe. That was the last conversa-
tion we had. He has not called, e-mailed, or even sent a text
message. Did I take the friendly gestures as meaning too much,
or should I accept it for what it's worth?
STEPHANIE

Stephanie, he behaved like a complete gentleman, but per-
haps he wasn't looking for a lady. Remaining a lady allows you
to keep this encounter as a pleasant memory.

I'm seeing a girl who has me
in the biggest state of confu-
sion. We met through friends
and went from zero to 60 in
a matter of hours. That was
unlike both of us, or at least
I'm trusting it's unlike her.
We really hit it off and
started dating, seeing each other
for the most part of a week or
two. We decided to be exclusive,
but after a bit of that, she
realized my idea of exclusivity
didn't include her constant flirt-
ing with friends and strangers
alike. So we took things down
a notch.
I'm extremely into this girl.
I've analysed and analysed, and
this is no 'wanting what you
can't get' case. I know I need to
be her friend above all else. I'm


always there for her, even when
she won't admit she needs it. I
talk things out with her with a
true interest in her needs.
When we're in the company
of others, I barely exist, let
alone come across as anything
other than a minor friend. Only
when there's a female near does
she make her presence felt.
Fine, fine, I understand. My is-
sue is we argue because she
constantly fails to call me and
changes plans on me without
warning.
Every time she's back
with an apology and a sugges-
tion we spend time alone.
This, of course, brings back
my interest. I'm trying so
damned hard to be under-
standing, but I can't figure

THUMB-SUCKING is a com-
mon habit of preschool chil-
dren. The activity is normal
for infants and toddlers, but
should decrease by three to
four years and stop by age
five. Unfortunately, many
youngsters can't break the
habit by this time. But is pa-
rental anxiety over thumb-
sucking warranted? It should
be if the right attitude is not
embraced.


b-suc


The sucking of the thumb,
another fingerss, or the tongue
is a very normal response to
anxiety and stress and does not
point to insecurity or emotional
problems in your child. How-
ever, most children give up the
habit by age four, when some
children continue to suck their
thumbs as a means of exerting
independence. Aside from some
minor problems with thumb and
fingernail infections, the most


damage from thumb-sucking oc-
curs to the teeth and jaw.
A well-known pediatrician
recently stated on television
that continued sucking of
thumbs or fingers does not
cause serious dental problems in
children and is not cause for pa-
rental alarm. Wrong! In fact,
prolonged thumb activity pro-
duces significant problems with
chewing, speech, and facial ap-
pearance. In fact, the more time


[IN

a child sucks his/her thumb and
the greater the sucking pressure,
the more harm done to teeth and
jaws. Day and night forceful
thumb-sucking makes front
teeth move, and can even re-
shape the jaw bone. Upper
front teeth flare out and tip up-
ward while lower front teeth
move inward. But, how can
something as small as a child's
thumb or finger effectively
move bone?
The reason that thumbs
and fingers are effective
tooth-movers and bone
shapers is that the jaw bones
of children under age eight
are especially soft and mal-
leable. Children have upper
and lower jaws rich in blood
supply and relatively low in
mineral content, especially
calcium. Unfortunately for
children and parents, pro-
longed thumb- or finger-
sucking easily deforms the
bone surrounding upper and
lower front teeth, producing
a hole or gap when teeth are
brought together known as
an "open bite". Now, if a
child stops thumb-sucking
before loss of baby front teeth
and permanent front tooth
eruption, most or all harmful
effects disappear within six
months. However, if the habit
persists through permanent
front tooth eruption, there
can be lasting damage: flared
or protruded upper teeth, de-
layed eruption of upper or
lower front teeth, and the

aforementioned open bite.
This can result in chewing
difficulties, speech abnor-
malities, and an unattractive
smile.
Some parents try home
remedies to break the habit.
Some try placing gloves on their
children before bedtime. Others
paint thumbs and fingers with
various foul-tasting substances,
while still others wrap bandages
around the offending digits. Yet,
all of these measures are typi-
cally easy to overcome and are
usually unsuccessful, because
thumb-sucking is a deeply in-
grained behaviour. One method
which might help is to tie/roll a
used X-ray film on the elbow of
the child so that child can not
bend the hand. You can tape the
edges of the film to avoid sharp
ends. Any method will work
only if child agrees to cooper-
ate.
One answer to this paren-
tal dilemma is a simple device
called a "crib." Placed by your
dentist on the child's upper
teeth, the crib usually stops the
habit cold the first day of use.
The appliance's technical name
is a "fixed palatal crib," and is a
type of brace that sits full-time
on the upper teeth and the roof
of the mouth. The crib consists
of semicircular stainless steel
wires connected to supporting
steel bands or rings. The half-
circle of wires fits behind the
child's upper front teeth, barely
visible in normal view. The
bands are fastened to the baby
upper second molars. There are
a number of different crib de-
signs used by dentists, all varia-
tions on the same theme.
The first step for parents
is to make an appointment for
their child with a dentist. At
the initial visit, the doctor ex-


amines the child for problems
with tooth position and bite.
The teeth of confirmed thumb-
suckers have the tell-tale pat-
tern described above, and the
doctor will ask about any habit
history. With a diagnosis of in-
tractable thumb-sucking, the
dentist will usually recommend
a crib to eliminate the habit. A
second appointment is then ar-
ranged, where clay impressions
are made for plaster study
models, together with facial
and dental photographs and jaw
x-rays.
The dentist generally begins
crib construction at the third
visit, and installs the appliance
at the fourth. The child may or
may not experience soreness of
upper back teeth for a few
hours, and modified speech for
one or two days. Instructions
are given on avoiding gum chew-
ing, hard and sticky candy, pop-
corn, peanuts and other brace-
destroying foods. The patient is
asked to not pull on the crib
with fingers. Thorough tooth-
brushing after each meal is
stressed to prevent food and
plaque build-up and gum infec-
tions or cavities.
Once the crib is installed,
there is little adjustment. It
is one of the simplest, yet
most effective orthodontic de-
vices. Terrible looking open
bites can close within a few
months. The parent and pa-
tient should consult the den-
tist every two weeks so that
proper monitoring can take
place. One should remember
that if the habit of thumb-
sucking is not arrested at the
right time, then the parent
can easily find themselves
paying over a hundred thou-
sand dollars to correct the
problem.

Mastermind sentenced to death







for'57 Payroll robbery murder


Privy CAounci lfoundlondemnedmurdelr[rn1notgul[lt


By George Barclay


IN 1957, five men were tried
together on indictment for
murder.
The jury acquitted all of the
accused except Suruj Paul, the
alleged mastermind whom they
found guilty as being accessory
before the fact to murder.
Suruj Paul appealed. His
conviction and death sentence
were affirmed by the Court of
Criminal Appeal constituted by
Acting Chief Justice, Kenneth
Stoby and Justices of Appeal
R.H. Luckhoo and Adrian Date.
In those days, the British
Privy Council was the final
court for British Guiana, result-
ing in the condemned murderer
appealing to that court, with the
hope that he would escape the
gallows.
His appeal was successful.
The Law Lords, including Lord
Tucker, Lord Somervell of Har-
row, and Lord Denning allowed
the appeal, quashed the convic-
tion and sentence and entered a
verdict of not guilty in favour
of Suruj Paul.
The case for the prosecu-
tion against the appellant Suruj
Paul was to the effect that he
arranged with the other accused
for the commission of an armed
robbery on persons carrying a
payroll, a felony involving the
use of violent means, if neces-
sary, to achieve their ends, and
that, in the course of that crime,


a policeman guarding the pay-
roll was fatally shot by his as-
sailants.
A verbal as well as a signed
statement alleged to have been
made by the appellant to the
police in the absence of the
other accused (and therefore not
admissible in evidence against
the other accused), amounting
to a confession by the appellant
that he had arranged with the
other accused to rob the payroll
if need be by violent means,
were admitted in evidence at the
trial.
On appeal to the Court of
Criminal Appeal, Barrister-
at-law, M. Misir for appellant
contended on behalf of Suruj
Paul, that he could not be
found guilty as an accessory
before the fact to murder
where the other persons
charged as principals in the
commission of the crime were
themselves acquitted.
Solicitor General G. M.
Farnum for the respondent, con-
tended that the acquittal of the
other accused formed no bar to
the conviction of the appellant
as accessory before the fact to
murder by those other accused.
the jury being properly directed
to consider the case against each
accused person separately tak-
ing into consideration only the
evidenced legally admissible in
respect of each accused.
The Court of Criminal Ap-
peal held that under the provi-


sions of Section 25 of the
Criminal Law (Offences) Ordi-
nance, Chapter 10, the appel-
lant alone could have been in-
dicted with committing the sub-
stantive felony, and, after his


conviction, the principals could
then have been indicted. If they
were acquitted, the conviction of
the accessory could not be im-
peached.
"It was in the circumstances
of this case competent for the
jury to have returned the verdict
they did against the appellant",
the Court of Criminal Appeal
had ruled in dismissing the ap-
peal by Suruj Paul.


The facts of the case dis-
closed that the appellant Suruj
Paul, along with four other men
- Nickram called Chandie,
Kissoon called Baljit, Samaroo
Karmaia called Battle Boy and
Ivan Jagolall were indicted for
the murder of Claude Allen, a
police constable.
At the end of the case for
the prosecution, Chandie
was, on the direction of the
trial judge, acquitted by the
jury. At the end of the case,
the jury acquitted the re-
maining accused except the
appellant who was found
guilty of being an accessory
before the fact to murder and
was duly sentenced to death.
He appealed.
The evidence for the pros-
ecution disclosed that on March
9, 1957, Walter Cameron, a field
overseer of Rose Hall Estate,
was proceeding to a place called
New Dam in a Land Rover with


the sum of $4, 400 for the pay-
ment of estate workers.
With Cameron in the Land
Rover were the driver and Po-
lice Constable Allen, the latter
acting as escort and armed with
a pistol. In attempting to cross
a bridge, the driver brought his
vehicle to a stop. Thereupon,
two masked men, one armed
with a stick and the other with
a double-barrelled shot gun
came from a nearby cane-field
shouting, "Hold up!" The
masked man who was armed
with a stick came up to
Cameron who was sitting next
to the driver'ind Cameron threw
the money in the containers
onto the ground. The other
masked man armed with the
shot gun went to the rear of the
vehicle where P.C Allen was sit-
ting. Cameron' then heard the
sound of a shot and found Allen
lying in the vehicle bleeding
from the face. Allen's pistol was


still in its holster. Cameron then
saw four masked men running
away from the direction of the
vehicle.
Allen, who was wounded
by a gunshot on the left shoul-
der and the right side of his face,
died later that day from shock
and haemorrhage resulting from
his wounds.
According to the Court of
Criminal Appeal judgment, the
case against the appellant
centred in the main on the evi-
dence of Desmond Dhajoo, a
witness for the prosecution, and
two statements, one verbal and
the other written, alleged to
have been made by the appel-
lant to the police.
Dhajoo had testified that
on Thursday, March 7, 1957,
he went to the house of the
accused Jagolall. In premises

DEATH could not silence her, a voice exploring debilitating eth-
nic and gender issues, a voice coming to grips with identities -
Guyanese consciousness and Indian sensibility, but more impor-
tantly, a voice of anticipation and hope. Such was the essentially
volatile life of Mahadai Das.


GPL UPGRADING & UPDATING


Want fS Inf o On- lULo tv p


SOldest of ten children, she was a first child, burdened with the
concomitant of a female first child and visited by numerous trials.
When Das was only seventeen, her mother died, leaving Das to care
for her nine siblings. All of this was happening while Das was still'
at secondary school, aiming for the higher education the Univer-,
sity of Guyana aiming to break the mould of the disadvantaged;
otis woman, the disadvantaged Indo-Guyanese woman.
tial In 1972, she became part of the Messenger Group with Janet
>or- Naidu, Rooplall Monar and others. It was Rajkumari Singh who
, uf initiated the formation of the organisation 'dedicated to bringing tQ
u public notice that "Coolie art forms" were equally a part of the
S Guyanese tradition'. Later that same year, Das took part in the
hal- Caribbean Festival of Arts, Carifesta, held in Guyana.
In October of 1973, she was crowned queen of Maha Sabha'
)ier Dewali Jalsa in the midst of turmoil at home, another evidence of
)ast the seesaw effect of her existence. During that same period, Das
pril performed her poem in vernacular 'Chile is who yuh foolin' at the
Theatre Guild as the Messenger Group staged a three-day celebra-
- tion of the Coolie Art Forms.
Between 1973 to 1975, she was a significant part of the
Guyana National Service, serving in its Cultural Division,
S burning with patriotic fervour and idealistic revolutionary
imagination. This showed up in her first collection of poems I
WANT TO BE A POETESS OF MY PEOPLE,1976. This col-
lection also traced her roots from indenture to independence
and included her most performed poem 'THEY CAME IN
S SHIPS'.
Das was fortunate that she was able to move on with her liter-
ary development. Many other writerss swayed by idealistic revolu-
tionary and revolutionary cliches fell by the wayside and were alien-
ated. Those radical ratings couldn't sustain their literary aspira-
tions.
A few years later, although she became disillusioned with the
policy of the then government of fie day, her patriotic fervour did
not diminish. In fact, she was more mature in her thinking when
she joined the Working People's Alliance. Here, she came under the
influence of Walter Rodney but when he was killed in 1980, she
was forced to flee...to the USA, leaving behind her homeland but
not its politics.
Das' second book of poems MY FINER STEAL WILL GROW,
1982, is a better crafted work than her first. Here she moved to
another level of consciousness: metaphysically exploring the irm-
portance of politics through the relationship of man and woman,
how personal relationships were compromised due to political de-
spair and frustration. This book also portrayed her still nursing
wounds of her disillusionment with the then government of the day
but appreciably singling her out as a fresh new voice with which to
reckon.
Her poems could be found in local journals like Kykoveral, and
Kaie. While at Columbia University, she published in student maga-
zines like Common Ground and Black Heights. Of great significance
also is that her poems have found their way onto the syllabi of
Caribbean, North American and European universities. That alone
speaks volumes of the quality, content and import of her writing. :
In 1988, she published her most accomplished collection
BONES, confining her individuality and her place as a top crafter
of verse.
Mahadai Das was educated at Bishop's High School in
Georgetown before moving on to the University of Guyana and
then the University of the West Indies. She gained a B.A. in phi-
losophy at Columbia University and a M.A. in the same subject a't
the University of Chicago.
While awaiting her Ph. D candidature, she underwent open-heart
surgery from which she never fully recovered, truncating her aca-
demic career in 1987. a career that was fraught with so many ob-
stacles, battles that she overcame only to lose the war. Undaunted,
still resolute, she cried out for attention, 'I mourn unflowered words,
unborn children, inside me...absent water can has never lent itself
to flowers'.
So when 'Millicent' (so fondly called by her relatives and friends)
became unwell. many of her colleagues rallied to her assistance.
Mahadai Das dyed her name in the country's literary heri-
tage because she was in that first ripple of women writers of
Indian ancestry staking a claim to the word 'Guyanese'.

for '57 Payroll ...

From page V
near to Jagolall's, he saw the appellant with certain articles of clothing and four masks. The
appellant told him that he must keep his mouth shut and that "they" were going to rob New
Dam payroll money. He then saw the accused Baljit and Battle Boy come up and the appellant
told them that he (Dhajoo) was alright and that they must not be afraid. Baljit was then carry-
ing a large bag out of which he (Baljit) took three guns and showed them to the appellant who
examined them.
The appellant. Baljit and Battle Boy had drinks together and the appellant showed Baljit and Battle
Boy the articles of clothing which Dhajoo had earlier seen in the appellant's possession. The appellant
placed the clothing in a bag while Baljit placed the guns in that bag. On the following day. March 8,
1957, Dhajoo said that he returned to Jagolall's home where he saw the appellant and asked him what
had happened. The appellant told him that "they" had only hidden the guns and that on the night
"they" would travel on New Dam. The appellant further told him that "they" had to leave early that
night as "they" could not carry the guns in daylight.
Sub-Inspector of Police Charles, a witness for the Prosecution testified that on March 11. 1957. he
was at Albion Police Station carrying out investigations into the murder of P.C. Allen when the appel-
lant was brought to him by other police officers. He questioned the appellant and then confronted him
with the accused Jagolall. He asked Jagolall in the appellant's presence and hearing whether the appel-
lant was the person named Suruj Paul he had told him about. Jagolall replied in the affirmative and was
taken away.
He then told the appellant that on March 9, at 1.15 p.m., a policeman had been killed on New
Dam; that the payroll had been robbed at No. 50 Reliance, and that he suspected the appellant and
others had committed the crime.
According to Inspector Charles, at this stage, the appellant said. "Ah so them say. All a we neck
rass go broke. Bring pen and paper and write. I will tell you the whole story".
The appellant was cautioned and made a confession which was admitted in evidence by the trial
judge despite objection by the defence.
The Guiana Criminal Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal, and affirmed the conviction and death
sentence.
Suruj Paul appealed to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.
In that Court's findings allowing the appeal, and setting aside the conviction and sentence as af-
firmed by the Guiana Criminal Court of Appeal, their Lordships found it difficult to believe that in any
event the jury applied this process of reasoning in arriving at their verdict. They consider it much more
likely that the jury failed to appreciate the distinction between incitement to murder or conspiracy and
being an accessory before the fact.
The Privy Council concluded: "Whatever may have actuated the jury in coming to these inconsis-
tent verdicts their Lordships are satisfied on an examination of the evidence that there was no distinc-
tion with regard to the evidence relating to the commission of the substantive offence as between the
appellant and the other accused which could justify the result arrived at.
"Their Lordships have accordingly humbly advised Her Majesty that this appeal may be
allowed, the verdict against and sentence upon the appellant be quashed and a verdict of not
guilty entered."

Marinating meat may cut



cholesterol compounds

By Amy Norton
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) Just in time for holiday grilling, scientists have found that
marinating meats may help reduce unhealthy cholesterol compounds that form during cook-
ing.
Researchers in Taiwan found that marinades made with soy sauce or sugar inhibited the forma-
tion of cholesterol oxidation products (COPs) in pork and eggs as they cooked.
COPs are generated when cholesterol-rich foods are processed or heated, and research suggests
that, in excess, the compounds may damage body cells and contribute to ills such as heart disease
or cancer
To study the effects of marinades on COP formation, Dr. Bing-Huei Chen and colleagues at Fu
Jen University in Taipei soaked ground pork and hard-boiled eggs in marinades containing soy
sauce, sugar or both. The only other ingredient in each marinade was water.
In general, the researchers found, all of the marinades cut COP formation during cooking, with
sugar being particularly effective.
Marinating may create the benefit, Chen told Reuters Health, by generating so-called "brown-
ing reaction products." These substances are thought to act as antioxidants, which mean they help
neutralize COPs and similar molecules that can damage body cells.
It's also possible, Chen added, that healthful nutrients in soy sauce, such as isoflavones, help
quash COP formation.
Whether other types of marinades have such anti-COP abilities is unknown, according
to the researcher. The simple sugar-soy sauce marinade, Chen noted, was only 1 percent
soy sauce and 10 per cent sugar, so it would. add few calories and little salt to a health-
conscious cookout.

(Reuters) In the azure waters

ease and a phenomenon
known as bleaching.
Eight hurricanes in two

Hello Readers,
JULY 11th was designated World Population Day by the United
Nations Population Fund. This day draws attention to the con-
nections between populations, development-and-environment.
This week's article will focus on population and the environ-
ment.
Human needs are growing rapidly. We want more food, more


cars, more fuel, and more buildings... more of everything and more


than ever before. As our numbers, needs and desires grow, so do
our demands and our impact on the environment.
Over the past 50 years, humans have changed ecosystems
more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable period
of time in human history, according to the 2005 UN Millen-
nium Ecosystem Assessment Study. The UN Study shows that
human activity is unsustainably using 60 per cent of the eco-
system services that support us, including fresh water, air, for-
ests, fish and wildlife.
If we continue the current trend, the purposes for which we
use environmental resources to provide for basic needs and in-
crease the quality of life of a rapidly growing population will be
undermined. In addition, the loss of culturally significant spaces,
the addition of new diseases and the speed by which they travel,
the lack of resources and arable land, and shifts in climate will nega-
tively affect human welfare.
We have the ability to lessen the burden we place on the envi-
ronment. The Population Institute asserts that the solution lies in
promoting forward-looking, environmentally sound, and sustainable
development practices that take into account the roles of consump-
tion and unsustainable population growth.
Our planet is now home to more than six billion people with
a projected 50 per cent increase in the next fifty years. The rate at
which we consume and degrade natural resources jeopardises the
health of the planet and threatens the availability of clean water for
generations to come. With almost one-half of the global population
under the age of 25. the choices families make today will have a
tremendous impact on the future.


planet's land surface, they hold nearly 20 per cent of its human
population. The population in these biodiversity hotspots is grow-
ing at a collective rate of 1.8 per cent annually, compared to the
world's population's annual growth rate of 1.3 per cent.
The planet's major renewable natural resources its
fresh water, fisheries and forests are already strained. Our
atmosphere has been dramatically altered. Based on these

POPU
i/^l


We have an opportunity and a responsibility to address the
long-term challenges of protecting the global environment, preserv-
ing natural resources and reducing wasteful consumption. We can
work together on common environmental challenges, like cleaning
up and protecting the air, water and land we depend on for life.
Environmental successes can be short-lived if they do not include
efforts to address population growth. Meeting the basic need for
family planning and reproductive health services now is a neces-
sary investment for an improved environmental future.
POPULATION ISSUES
There are-several issues with regards to the world population.
Some of these issues are:
Reproductive Health:- An example of this, is the high num-
ber of maternal and child deaths in developing countries. Every
minute of every day, a woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth and
some 20 children die of largely preventable causes,
Policy: In countries around the world, policy decisions on
funding levels, the environment, family planning and reproductive
health affect the lives of many people, families, and communities.
In some countries, contributions from donor countries or
organizations provide the only source of funding for family plan-
ning programmes; conservation and sustainable development
programmes; and reproductive health supplies and services.
Environment: Today more than 1.1 billion people live in the
areas richest in species diversity and the most threatened by hu-
man activities. While these areas comprise about 12 per cent of the

POPULAR IMAGE OF CHE
GUEVARA

The well known Wikipedia site
notes: "Even liberal elements
that felt little sympathy with
Guevara's ... ideals during his
lifetime expressed admiration for
Shis sprit of self sacrifice".
Check further on Google
and you will even find declassi-
fied US documents on the CIA's
involvement in his death. Walt
Rostow, the then National Secu-
rity advisor to President Lyndon


Johnson, openly boasts that
Che's death showed
the "soundness of our preventive
medicine", meaning US policies
under Johnson's watch to such
movements. The late Rostow,
certainly as serious historians
now attest, was one of the US'
more short-sighted and
overpaid security advisors, was
also instrumental in having US
troops sent to Vietnam in that
debacle.
Che, and people
like Patrice Lumumba earnestly
believed that people shouldn't
blindly follow the leaders but
should support them through an
understanding of issues. There
shouldn't be unthinking hero
worship, though of course the
Cuban government, as others
worldwide, recognize the impor-
tance of charisma and other per-
sonal leadership qualities.
"We remember the life of
Ernesto Che Guevara. We in
the Caribbean and Guyana
remember him, not to worship
him blindly as a saint nor
necessarily agree with all of
what he did, but as a
true friend from Latin
America especially Cuba. We
remember him, as he wrote to
the Cuban President, as one
who left his "purest hopes as
a builder (of a new society)."

stage
By Claudia Parsons
NEW YORK (Reuters) After writing 'The Motorcycle Dia-
ries' screenplay, Jose Rivera felt he had more to say about
Ernesto 'Che' Guevara so he wrote a play he says shows
the Latin American revolutionary would have had plenty to
say about the war in Iraq.
"When you're in a situation where you're killing people and
no one really knows why, the times require someone to ask those
questions," Rivera said in an interview in New York, where his
new play 'School of the Americas' opens on Thursday.
"Che was always asking those questions and criticising U.S.
imperialistic impulses all over the world," he said.
Rivera, a Puerto Rican raised in New York, said some of the
dialogue speaks directly to the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

PLAYWRIGHT Jose Rivera speaks about his screenplay for 'School of the Americas' in New
York, June 26, 2006. (Chip East/Reuters)



Che Guevara's



last night alive ...


From Centre
people feel around the
world. Che said in the 1960s
the greatest enemy of man-
kind is the United States,
and there would be people
who say that today," he said.
The play is the story of
Guevara's last night before his
death in Bolivia, where he
spent the final year of his life
trying to foment a communist
uprising. The Argentine guer-
rilla, a key figure in Cuba's
revolution. was captured by
government troops and held in
a village schoolhouse while the
Bolivian and U.S. governments


decided his fate.
A schoolteacher named Julia
Cortes insisted on being allowed
to visit him and befriended him.
Rivera said he came across
her story while doing research
for 'The Motorcycle Diaries',
the 2004 film about the young
Guevara's transformative jour-
ney through Latin America with
a friend. Cortes, now in her 70s,
was interviewed for a Swiss
documentary Rivera came
across.
"I was very taken with her
presence. She talked about
meeting Che and what they
talked about, and I had this feel-
ing that it really changed her


life," Rivera said. "I started to
imagine this story of Che's last
friendship."

HERO TO SOME,
'DEVIL'TO
OTHERS
Rivera said he imagined the
conversations in the play that
range in subject from Guevara's
marriage and children, to his
mother's influence, his ideals
and philosophy, as well as
some doubts about the path he
took in his final years.
"In several interviews Julia
talks about the kinds of things
they talked about but it's all
very sketchy." Rivera said, add-
ing that since writing the play
he had spoken to Cortes.
tracked down in Bolivia by a
relative of Patricia Velasquez,
the Venezuelan actress who
plays Cortes.
"Patricia was able to have a
phone conversation with her
and they arranged for Julia to go
to a cyber-cafe and we had a
cyber conversation over the
Internet with the whole cast."
"No one knows but her re-
ally what happened in that
room." River added.
Rivera. who was nominated
for an Oscar for 'The Motor-
cycle Diaries', was 13 when
Guevara was killed in 1967 and
he remembers it well. "He was
a big hero with my family."
"That was the time period
when Martin Luther King was
killed and Bobby Kennedy was
killed and Malcolm X was killed,
so it seemed to be part of the
times that all our heroes were
being killed one by one," Rivera
said.
He said Guevara was as
controversial a figure at that
time as he is today "a devil"
for many expatriate Cubans and
critics of Fidel Castro's commu-
nist revolution; a handsome,
idealistic and charismatic cult
figure for "60s college kids" and
many leftists, particularly in
Europe.
"My daughter wore a Che
T-shirt to school and she was
criticised by one of the teach-
ers saying 'He's a terrorist,'
and 'Why would you glorify
a terrorist?'," Rivera said,
adding that he does not ex-
pect to take the new play to
;Miami..

Poet I

THE poem below was penned by Peyton Allana Singh, a 14-
year-old from Brooklyn who celebrates her birthday today.
Peyton has Guyanese roots: her parents are Guyanese
Jacqueline and Peter Singh who now reside in Brooklyn, New
York.
She has been writing poetry since she was 11 and most of her
offerings explore 'adult' themes of the ominous, the brooding futil-
ity or uncertainty of life, according to proud grandfather, Allan
Fenty. She has been published in her school magazine.


Pebbles
As I walk on the bitter beach, I see myself, a pebble, shin-
ing black, hypnotising unknown
The water sways like the fragment of my mind
Pebbles skip across waves to the beat of time
The beat chums my belief to tears
Black pebbles skip across my fears
Small, unworthy, big, cruel
Me to the world made by fools
Bouncing on rising waters that go up and down
A mystifying sensation that swings to a merry-go-round
Pebbles hiding me. Protecting my sight from the things I
can't see
Thank pebbles for concealing my mind
Of vivid thoughts that swirl, combine
Pleasure, misery, bliss, despair
Pebbles make sure that I Don't have to care
Pebbles calm the waters of my brain that twists and


swings driving me insane
Pebbles, pebbles, all around, as I walk on the beach, not
uttering a sound

Pronouns refer back to something that has al-
ready been mentioned in a piece of writing. They
can refer back to:
a) A word like a noun or another pronoun
b) A group of words, a phrase
c) An idea.

Can you now put into your own words why we
use pronouns? Okay, we use pronouns to avoid
repeating, things. It is important to make sure
that the reader understands exactly what each
pronoun refers to.
There are several different types of pronoun, but
some of the, commonest are personal pronouns.
Personal Pr6pouns
Personal pronouns are used instead of the names
of people and things. They are:


I/me
we/us
you


she/her
he/him


it
they/them

ing sentences:
1. Sandra, I shall leave for Fogarty's by noon.
Shirley is going with me.
2. Has she ever visited Fogarty's before?
3 Shelly and she, their best workers, were slim


girls.
4. There weren't many witnesses present when
Simon barged into the dressing rooms.
5. That was he. Why didn't many recognize him

tence marked in underline.

Mum Sandra Brenner lowered her children to
safety from their blazing house on Tuesday with

dire warnings about the health of the world's coral reefs. The reef running alongside the
110-mile (177-km) Florida Keys island chain is North America's only barrier reef and the world's
third longest.
The Tortugas Ecological Reserve was created in 2001 by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanc-
tuary as the largest U.S. permanent reserve where all fishing and removal of coral is banned. At the
time, it was considered to contain some of the nation's healthiest coral.
But 10 per cent to 12 per cent of the corals surveyed appear to be diseased compared to only one
per cent to two per cent in 2001, said researcher Dione Swanson.
The affected corals include star, brain, elkhorn and staghorn corals, the primary reef builders criti-
cal to the health of the habitat.
"It looks a lot like white plague, and it's an early start for this disease, which we usually see in
August or September. Last year was a high bleaching year," Swanson said. "We're seeing a lot of coral
colonies overturned."
Coral bleaching, a malady that has swept Florida, Caribbean and Australian reefs in the last year,
whitens and weakens coral and is blamed on unusually warm water that some scientists attribute to
global warming.
Another ominous sign, said Swanson, is the state of the Sherwood Forest reef tract. Once a thickly
carpeted reef estimated to be about 9,000 years old, it "has a lot of dead colonies," she said.
Gorgonians, or sea fans, have been hard hit by two years of hurricanes, Ault said.
"The gorgonian population has been reduced. In some areas, it's scrubbed like a Brillo pad."

IMPLICATIONS FOR TOURISM
The implications are not just environmental but also economic. In South Florida, the reef and its
ecosystem is a $6 billion annual business, according to Ault. It lures divers, recreational and commer-
cial fishers and sports tourists.
Craig Bonn, a biologist with the Dry Tortugas National Park, estimated only 13 per cent of the
coral that used to exist in the Keys remains. "Corals are in trouble all over the world," he said.
White plague disease can be linked to poor water quality and bacteria caused by human activity,
said researcher Mark Chiappone.
In the 1980s, acropora coral, a colorful hybrid species of staghorn and elkhor coral, was plentiful,
said Dave Score, superintendent of the sanctuary, which protects 2,900 square nautical miles of marine
habitat stretching from the Dry Tortugas to Biscayne National Park off Miami. "Now you can't find
it."
The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has listed staghorn and elkhorn coral
as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The designation is expected to prompt new regula-
tions and restoration efforts.
Reef Relief, a non-profit Florida Keys environmental group, began warning of the reef's demise in
1987. It blames the damage on a lack of effective federal protection, global warming, agricultural pollu-
tion runoff from the Florida Everglades and cruise ship sewage.
"I'm so frustrated. It's unbelievable that this coral has disappeared. The people managing this
never do anything meaningful," said DeeVon Quirolo, executive director of Reef Relief, who said that
only two per cent of the reef in the Florida Keys is covered with live coral.
"Coral reefs are in a state of decline around the world," said Billy Causey, acting regional manager
for national marine sanctuaries in the southeast United States. "At least we have protections in place.
There's probably not a piece of coral reef real estate that is any more protected."

trends, it is clear that the 21" century will witness even greater pressures on natural resources.
Gender and Society: The importance of good health and education to a woman's well-being -
and that of her family and society cannot be overestimated. While access to reproductive health
services is critical to improving women's health, it must be supported by efforts to empower women
through access to education and economic opportunities. Education enables girls at the threshold of
their childbearing years to take advantage of new opportunities for self-fulfillment and make an even
greater contribution to the development of their societies.
Economics and Governance:-During the 1990s, several economic researchers demonstrated that
demographic changes population growth and decline, changes in fertility, changes in mortality, changes
in age structure, or changes in population distribution can generate economic opportunities and chal-
lenges for developing and industrial nations.

COUNTRIES THAT HAVE THE LARGEST POPULATION.
In the world today, there are over twenty countries with a population of over 50 million. Here is a

ARIES Every once In a while, it's okay to be entertained by the soap opera
lives of others. There are some particularly juicy real-life storylines going on
around you, and today you get an Inside glimpse at a few details. But this
emotional eavesdropping Isn't so much a gossip-fest as a cautionary tale. Cer-
tain aspects of a situation ring a familiar note with your past, and this Is an
opportunity for you to see how taking a different path could affect your life.

TAURUS You're always wide open to new, Innovative ways of thinking and
this Is very wise. But today, avoid the temptation to abandon an old, firmly
held belief for the sake of something trendy or fadllke. Shiny, new things are
very attractive and can hold a certain fascination. But not everything needs to
be replaced periodically especially not your true feelings. Preserve your way
of thinking if It's challenged today. Keep your point of view alive.

GEMINI This long day begins with a lot of contradictory Information you
won't be sure whom to believe or what path to take for quite a while. Be
patient with yourself, and things will slowly settle into a logical order. Until
I you know exactly what you want to do, stick to your usual routine and pre-
tend that nothing out of the ordinary is going on. After all, nothing is going
, to change unless you make It change. You're still the one in charge, you know!

CANCER When you need a break, you really need a break. So listen to your
body and emotions as this day progresses. If you start to approach your break-
,if.. ^% ing point, you'll notice some clear signals and when you do, you hereby
S L / have official permission to coast and relax for a while! All the activity that's
,:. -.' been going on lately in your life may be too much. It's time to shift gears,
/" ,'- '.T. slow down and concentrate on a developing Issue with a friend or family
i I member.

LEO A lot of possibilities are dangled In front of you today, mostly in the
social realm. Everyone from shopkeepers to waitresses has a warm smile for
you so give them your best smile right back. Extend extra kindness to every-
one you meet, and some tentative connections could start to develop strong
foundations. It's not like you need any more friends right now, but there's
nothing saying you wouldn't get a very big kick out of It.

VIRGO You have way more power in tense situations than you think you do
so use it! There's no good reason for you to be doubting your potency right
now, so why are you? If you need to be reminded of how important you are,
get with your friends or family members and just hang out, just be you. You
don't have to ask them for an ego boost (and you definitely shouldn't hint
around for it). Just be genuine and relaxed and you'll start to feel better about
yourself before you know It.

LIBRA The efforts you've put forth start to pay off today it seems like tak-
Sing things slow was the right idea after all. Today's activities prove to you, in
a very dramatic way, that taking time to plan things is the right strategy every
time. When you succeed like this, you build up your confidence and your
reputation. Today you should enjoy watching how all of your carefully laid
plans make major things happen, just like clockwork.

SCORPIO As the old saying goes, the more things change, the more they
Stay the same. Today you start to understand that idea In a whole new way,
a when someone's return to the scene is distinctly underwhelming. No worries,
.-.4- though you'll have plenty of other things to look forward to during this
freewheeling and all around relaxing day. Enjoy the fact that you (unlike many
people) know exactly who you are and aren't afraid to be yourself. That
realisation keeps you smiling all day.

SAGITTARIUS It's Important to keep your mind and body limber today -
because something cool might arrive on the scene, and you'll want to be
able to jump right onto that bandwagon! Try to get some exercise early in
the morning even if that just means taking the stairs instead of the eleva-
tor. Getting your blood pumping early on will give you the energy you need
to follow whatever whims you have. Who knows? You might just discover a
whole new passion.

= CAPRICORN You've done a lot in your life that you deserve to be proud of,
and learned some Invaluable lessons. But today you encounter someone or
something unusual that puts you In a situation you've never experienced be-
fore. Nothing you've been through has prepared you for this, but you have a
ton of fun working your way through it. This Is a whole new ballgame, one
that stimulates and Inspires you. You get a taste of where your future could
take you.

AQUARIUS The truth is, there are always obstacles of some shape or size In
your way you just can't always see them. For a while now, there have been
some things slowing down your progress, and you've been unable (or per-
haps unwilling) to get a grasp on them. But that could change today. There is
brighter clarity within you right now, and your emotional maturity has reached
a crucial point that may allow you to face the truth and move on. The free-
dom will inspire you.

PISCES The mall is a wonderful place, but it's filled with as much garbage as
treasures. Your junk detector isn't doing so well right now, so you might want
to stay away from scheduling any shopping trips. Your wallet and credit card
accounts will thank you. The fierce urge to shop you feel isn't something to
obey at the moment and it's probably fueled by your desire for distraction
"ji from what's really bothering you. Retail therapy isn't the way to go.

dinary cricket. Aside from
the differences cited above,
the ball is hollow with ob-
jects, perhaps ball bearings or
soft drink covers, placed in-
side so that batsmen and
fielders can hear it when it is
near. The bowlers also shout
"PLAY" as they are about to
deliver the ball. There are
variations in different coun-
tries. In England for example,
the ball is two or three
sizes larger and the batsman
plays with a straight bat
rather than the horizontal
sweep most of the time.
There are three main catego-
ries: totally blind,
BI (partially sighted) and B2
(less severely partially
sighted). Different rules ap-
ply to different categories.
For example, a totally blind
player can catch a ball first
hop and be given a second
chance on a LBW decision.
The game, even at the
World Cup level, permits men
and women to play together.
Guttridge disclosed that only
one of the eight WBCC teams
(Australia, England, India, New
Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa
and Sri Lanka and West Indies)
presently have women players.
The West Indies entry will
change that. It is certain some
women will be among the 17
chosen to go to Pakistan this
December. Barbados had four
women in their team against
Guyana for example.
Some of the Guyana team
members in Barbados during the
week played cricket before they
became blind. One of them is
Ganesh Mitchell Singh, the Vice
Captain. Before he went blind
about six years ago, he played
for his team in Unity.
He had high praise for the
game in Guyana and the Cham-
pionship in Barbados.
"Being blind, I was in a
shell. When I started back
playing cricket, I came out
more. It gave me confidence
and is a good experience. I
started playing last Decem-
ber at the beginning of the
organising in
Guyana because I knew the
manager Mr. Ramlall.
Another batsman/bowler,
Ronald Kissoon, actually played
for the Demerara Cricket Club
and toured the islands including
to Barbados in the 1970s before
he was blinded in a tragic inci-
dent in December 1980. Like
Singh, a quiet spoken, articulate
man, Kissoon also lauds blind
cricket. "I see it as an absolute
good thing and a promising'de-


velopment for any disabled per-
son" said the Albouystown-
born and raised sportsman.
As with any society, misin-
formed people in Guyana can
be cruel to blind and other
physically challenged people.
Singh says there is still some
"ignorance" as he describes it,
out there.
President of the Guyana
Society for the Blind, Cecil
Maurice, also feels these
public awareness exercises
have improved thanks in part
to support from media houses
like the Chronicle, though he
would like to see it "improve
at a faster rate". He praised
the setting up of the Presi-
dential Commission for the
Disabled and the fact that
new legislation will shortly
be tabled in Parliament to
force new buildings to have
disabled friendly features
such as ramps for wheel-
chairs.
Maurice, 55, said he would
like to see more of the political
parties in Guyana allow physi-
cally challenged people, includ-
ing blind persons, take on pub-
lic office including being Mem-
bers of Parliament. He said there
were about 7,000 blind and vi-
sually impaired people in
Guyana.
Maurice also said the Cuban
'ye care programme as "a very


good thing". His own grandson
is among the thousands of
Guyanese who benefited from
this internationalist assistance
from the Cuban government and
people.
The Championship, which,
in addition to fund-raising, re-
ceived the assistance of
the Ministry of Sports and a
personal contribution from
President Jagdeo, was the best
thing that has happened for
blind people for a long time,
Maurice observed. The cricket
venture is making the fellows
bloomin' like roses now," he
said.
Physically challenged
people can be productive
members of any society. We
must commend
those participating in the
blind cricket tournament.
Not only the players such
as Ganesh, Ronald and
Maurice, but also
their managers and coaches
such as Mr. Ramlall and
Ms. Pemberton. They are
excellent examples of the
new outlook and progres-
sive development in recent
years in Guyana. It bodes
well for the continued
progress and overall well
being of our country.

UPCOMING sirens Alaine (top) and Danielle will get a shot
at Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest 2006.

(CARIBPR NEWSWIRE),
KINGSTON, Jamaica: PRO-
DUCERS of the 2006 Red
Stripe Reggae Sumfest are
set to continue their 14-year
tradition of providing an in-
ternational stage for new and
upcoming Jamaican artists to
showcase their talents to the
world.
This year, promoters have
signed new exciting acts, Jovi
Rockwell, Alaine, Cherine
Anderson and Danielle, who are
already creating a buzz in reggae
music circles, to perform at the
festival, between July 20- 22.
For Summerfest
Production's marketing director,
Jomo Cato, celebrating young
acts is important, especially
given the musical trend today
that has seen an explosion on the
mainstream of some previously
unknown but talented artists.
Cato points to the success
of 18-year-old Barbadian- born
sensation, Rihanna, who ex-
ploded onto the world scene af-
ter being virtually unknown
two summers ago.
Sexy Danielle, formerly of
St. Andrew High School for
Girls, recently stirred interest
with her combination with
Beenie Man on 'Brown Girl in
the Ring.' But she's also capti-
vated with the single 'Rudey.'
On July 20, the singer will per-
form on the same stage as top
acts like Beenie and Bounti
Killa.
On July 21, as 50-Cent and
his G-Unit get ready to rock
fans, Jovi Rockwell will be in-
troducing the Sumfest crowd to
her incredible talent. Rockwell
of the independent label, WIRE
ONE Records, has been receiv-
ing great rotation on local TV
stations in Jamaica for her 'All
About Love' single.
While on the final night,
July 22, newcomers Alaine and
Cherine Anderson, will help
bring the curtains down on the
show along with international
musical stars. Damian 'Jr. Gong'
Marley and Rihanna. Alaine is


-


known for tunes like 'No More
Chaka Chaka,' 'I'd Do Any-
thing,' and 'No Ordinary Love.'
Anderson, who turned heads for
her performances in both
'Dancehall Queen' and 'One
Love,' is now creating a new fan
base with her foray into music.
The actress turned singer; has
fans buzzing about her
'dancehall soul' vibe, as evi-
denced on "Good Love."
There's no doubt that all .
four young acts are going to take
the baton passed by top Jamai-
can acts before them and give
fans a treat at this year's Red
Stripe Reggae Sumfest.
By 1968, Holt set off on a
solo career for producers Bunny
Lee and Harry J. From here,
there was no stopping Holt
whose career catapulted him to
stardom with hits like 'Son Of
The Wise', 'Ali Baba', 'A Love
I Can Feel', 'Help Me Make It
Through', and 'If I Were A Car-
penter.'

LONDON (Reuters)A concert by Jamaican reggae artist Buju
Banton has been cancelled following protests by the local gay
community, the British venue said.
Banton, whose lyrics have been described as homophobic, was
due to play on Wednesday at the Concorde 2 venue in the southern
English seaside resort of Brighton, considered to be Britain's "gay
capital."
"Due to unprecedented pressure from the council, members of
the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community and
the police, Concorde 2 hayv been left with no choice other than to

i


cancel the Buju Banton event," the club said on its Web site.
It added that it was concerned about losing its license were the
gig to go ahead, although it defended the original decision to stage
it.
Concorde 2 sought to assure authorities that Banton would not
perform his most notorious song 'Boom Bye Bye', written in 1992,
which describes a gay man being shot in the head.
"Buju has metamorphosed from a rude boy/teenage phenom-
enon, causing controversy with the track 'Boom Bye Bye' (which
he no longer performs in the UK) into a self assured Rastafarian
deejay and singer," Concorde 2 said.
Welcoming the decision to cancel the gig, local authorities ar-
gued that the question of whether Banton pc'f 'rmed the offending

track or not was irrelevant.
"We weren't interested in seeing his set list," said a spokesman
for the Brighton & Hove city council.
"The position is that tours are usually used to sell records, and
all the offending tracks are still on sale."
The council had warned the club it would consider withdraw-
ing its license had the concert been staged, because it raised.ques-
tions over whether Concorde 2 was helping "to meet the council's
community safety objectives.
"It's questionable how they're doing that by helping promote
records which advocate shooting gay people and pouring acid over
them."
A July 29 concert by another controversial Jamaican reggae act,
Beenie Man, has been cancelled at the Bournemouth International
Center after police raised concerns over the "violent and homopho-
bic nature of song lyrics."
In November, 2004, a venue in Milton Keynes canceled a
gig by Jamaica's Sizzla Kalonji after pressure from gay rights
group Outrage!, which said he advocated killing lesbians and
gay men.



Sean Connerp


to publish views


on life and


Scotland
By Ian MacKenzie
EDINBURGH (Reuters) Sean Connery, who has said he
would not live in his Scotland again until it became inde-
pendent, is writing a book about his native country mixed
with autobiographical anecdotes, his publishers said.
Canongate Books of Edinburgh said it had acquired world
English-language rights to the film star's memoirs, 'Connery's
Scotland', in conjunction with Polygon.
"Our goal is to produce a very readable, visually stimulat-
ing and hopefully intriguing
history of Scotland, with
personal discoveries,"
Connery said in a statement.
Best known for his
screen portrayal of fictional
British spy James Bond,
...Connery will work in col-
S l elaboration with writer and
C Connery, the Edinburgh-
born son of a truck driver,
worked together with Grigor
on an award-winning docu-
mentary, 'Sean Connery's
Edinburgh'. The star now
lives in the Bahamas.
The Herald newspaper quoted Grigor as saying: "The con-
tent of the book is not quite all settled, and we have just been
discussing exactly what will go into it."
Canongate said the book would be published in September
next year to coincide with the 300th anniversary of the politi--
cal union of Scotland and England in 1707.
Canongate said it would include "his unique take on the in-
dividuals, often unrecognized, who have played their part in
Scotland's extraordinary history."
The 75-year-old actor, who rose from milkman and local
model to superstardom, has been a keen backer of the Scottish
National Party (SNP) which seeks Scottish independence from
the United Kingdom.
Canongate declined to say what Connery would be paid.
The Scotsman newspaper suggested two years ago, when
reporting Connery was interested in writing his memoirs, that
he could expect bids of three million pounds ($5.5 million) or
more from publishers.
Canongate publisher Jamie Byng said his firm was "abso-
lutely thrilled" to be publishing Connery.
"Not only is it going to be a fascinating and revelatory book
about Scotland, but Sir Sean is a natural storyteller with his
own great story to tell.
"Co-publishing with Hugh Andrew and his team at Poly-
gon adds another exciting dimension to what is going to
be one of the biggest publishing projects Canongate has
ever been involved in."
