THE Council for Human and

to analyse data and prioritise
action with regard to the
risks, violence and vulner-

cation Information Minister,
Mr. Anthony Wood said yes-

been of increasing concern in the
Caribbean over the past five
years.
He said that Health and
Family Life Education (HFLE)
were also discussed since chil-
dren and youths are confronted
with problems which prevent
them from maximising their true
potential.
COHSOD decided that
HFLE must be at the heart of

Iraqi forces clash, Bush



talks of changing tactics


By Jaafar Abd Al-SahibI

SUWAYRA, Iraq (Reuters)
Shi'ite militias battled Iraqi
police for a second day run-
ning and a mortar attack
killed more than a dozen
people yesterday, as Presi-
dent Bush talked of chang-
ing tactics.
There was confusion over
the death toll in the mortar as-
sault after nightfall in
Mahmudiya, south of Baghdad.
State television said it killed 30
people and wounded more than
50. Police and interior ministry
sources put the toll at 16. add-
ing the attack had been on a
marketplace.
"Our goal in Iraq is clear
and unchanging: Our goal is vic-
tory. What is changing are the
tactics we use to achieve that
goal," Bush said in his weekly
radio address.
Worsening violence in the
Shi'ite heartland is testing the
Shi'ite-led government's ability
to rein in militias and exposing
a power struggle in the ruling
Shi'ite coalition that threatens
to further complicate the U.S.
task in Iraq.
"Attacks have grown sig-


nificantly during the first weeks
of the Muslim holy- month of
Ramadan.'" Bush said. "The last
few weeks have been rough for
our troops in Iraq and for the
Iraqi people."
More than 2,700 U.S. sol-
diers have died in Iraq since the
U:S.-led invasion in 2003. At
least 73 U.S. troops have been
killed in October alone, a pace
that if continued will make it one
of the deadliest months for U.S.
forces.
"We will continue to be flex-
ible, and make every necessary
change to prevail in this struggle,"
said Bush, facing mnid-termn elec-
tions in which voter discontent
over the war has emergeId as a
top issue.
The escalation in Shi'ite in-
fighting comes as Shi'itls and
Sunnis are engaged in a vicious
sectarian conlil land insurgents
are ballling both Iraqi govern-
iment and U.S. troops.
Bush held a videoconference
with Vice President Dick Chenes.
Defence Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld. top White House of-
ficials and U.S. military officials
in Iraq yesterday.
There is a growing demand
from Republicans and Democrats


alike for a change in approach,
with suggestions ranging from
more U.S. Troops to dialogue
with Syria andI Iran to a with-
drawal of American forces from
thile country.
U.S. Secretary of Slate
Condoleezza Rice said Bush
did not plan a major review of
strategy.
"Given the problems of
violence in Iraq and the fact
that the violence is not coming
down to the degree that people
would have hoped, there will be
a lot of discussion about how
we address that," she told re-
porters travelling w\\ith her to
Moscow.
But a ilmember ol Bush's
Republican Paru., Sen. tOlyim-
pia Sno\\ c. told The Washing-
ton Post: "I don'l think there's
anv question about li.it,. that
there w\\ill hbe a change in llhie
U.S. strategy in Iral q after the
November 7 elections.

A Sadi spokesman said the
attack on tile police station was
a response to a raid by U.S.

a Sadr office that killed six
people. U.S. military said it had

political struggle between Sadr 's
supporters and the rlial Shi'ite
Badi lriglade close to SCIRI.
Under mounting U.S. pressure,
Shi'ile piemiiier Nuri al-Maliki has
pledged to disband militias. But
Maliki is dependent on lparies with
ties to the militias. Sadr has a large
bloc in parlimncent which provides
key support to Maliki's coalition
and moving against him could
weaken Maliki's 5-month-old gov-
emnlent.
The Shi'ite south is still
peaceful compared to western
and central Iraq where a Sunni
Arab insurgency is raging. But
the bitter power struggles
among Shi'ite groups are raising
questions about whether U.S.
troops will be able to turn over
security to Iraqis in the south
as planned.
At the heart of the in-
fighting among the once-op-
pressed but newly powerful
Shi'ite majority are Sadr, a
young radical cleric with sup-
port among poor Shi'ites, and
Abdul Aziz al-Hakim, who
heads the more traditional
Supreme Council for the Is-
lamic Revolution in Iraq
(SCIRI), the largest party in
the coalition.

U.S. says North Korea trying

to escalate nuclear crisis

By Sue Pleming

MOSCOW (Reuters) -U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice cast doubt on reports that North Korea had pledged
not to stage another nuclear test, saying yesterday it
seemed instead bent on escalating the crisis.
News reports had raised hopes that tension was easing on
Friday by saying North Korean leader Kim Jong-il had told
China's special envoy Tang Jiaxuan this week he planned no
further nuclear tests.
But Rice met Tang in Beijing on Friday and later told re-
porters travelling on to Moscow with her:
"Tang did not tell me that Kim Jong-il either apologised
for the test or said that he would not ever test again."
Russia is the last stop on Rice's five-day trip to rally sup-
port for U.N. economic and weapons sanctions, imposed a week
ago to punish Pyongyang for its October 9 underground nuclear
test explosion.
Little emerged from her talks yesterday evening with Rus-
sian President Vladimir Putin.
Kremlin press secretary Alexei Gromov said Rice had briefed
the president on her trip to Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing.
"The president and secretary of state exchanged views on
issues related to North Korea and questions linked to nuclear
non-proliferation," Interfax news agency quoted him as saying.
The talks also focused on "forthcoming Russian-U.S. con-
tacts at the highest level," the statement said without elaborat-
ing.
Rice had earlier played down reports Kim had told Beijing
he "regretted" the test. condemned internationally, including by
China, the North's closest ally and economic lifeline.
"The Chinese did not, in a fairly thorough briefing to me,
say anything about an apology." she said. "The North Kore-
ans. I think, would like to see an escalation of the tension."
She also questioned whether Pyongyang intended to return
to six-party talks, stalled for nearly a year.
Kim Kye-gwan, North Korea's top nuclear negotiator, ear-
lier told U.S. television Pyongyang hoped to return to the table.

NORTH KOREAN BOYCOTT
North Korea has boycotted the talks, which bring together
the two Koreas, the United States, Japan, Russia and China,
because Washington, accusing it of counterfeiting money, is im-
posing restrictions on its external financing.
South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper quoted an unidenti-
fied diplomatic source in Beijing as saying Kim had told Tang
that Pyongyang would resume talks if Washington ended its
financial sanctions. But Rice said they would remain.
"The financial measures are a legal process which has to
do with counterfeiting money. The (U.S.) president has made
very clear at every turn that he is going to defend the U.S. cur-
rency,." she said.
China's Xinhua news agency quoted Tang as saying the
United States should take a more flexible attitude toward North
Korea, a view which Russia echoed yesterday.
"Settling financial problems in relations between the United
States and North Korea would have consid-. able importance
in creating conditions for the resumption of the talks," Russia's
Interfax news agency quoted Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov
as telling the Kuwaiti news agency in an interview.
Rice's visits to Tokyo, Seoul and Beijing were overshad-
owed by speculation that North Korea would conduct a sec-
ond nuclear test. But on Friday reports said Kim had told Tang
no more nuclear tests were planned.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted a diplomatic
source as saying: "I understand he (Kim) expressed clearly there
was no plan to conduct nuclear tests."
Rice won few commitments from China and South Korea
on implementing sanctions on their impoverished neighbour.
China is seen as having the greatest potential leverage but
fears instability and a potential wave of refugees.should sanc-
tions prompt North Korea's collapse.
North Korea said. it was ready for any crisis and would
"react to the aggressors' play with fire with dreadful strike of
justice."
Its official KCNA news agency said yesterday that U.S.
pressure for sanctions. backed by Japan and South Korea., was
aimed at suffocating the country. .
"This development is pushing the situation to the worst
phase of confrontation and the eve of war," it said. "The
army and people ... are fully ready to become l'uman bul-
lets and bombs in defending Korean-style socialism, their
dignity and life."

Lula's lead widens



before Brazil runoff


RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil
(Reuters) Brazilian Presi-
dent Luiz Inacio Lula da
Silva widened his lead over
rival Geraldo Alckmin to 24
points in a poll released on
Friday that showed him
poised to win re-election in
the October 29 runoff.
A survey by lbope polling
firm released by TV Globo
showed Lula would win 62 per
cent of the valid votes, com-
pared with 57 per cent in a poll
released on October 12, as he
brushed off the effects of a re-
cent political scandal.
Alckmin, a former Sao
Paulo state governor and a con-
servative favoured by many
business leaders, would win 38
per cent of valid votes, down
from 43 per cent last week. The
poll, carried out on Wednesday
and Thursday, surveyed 3,010
voters and had a margin of er-
ror of 2 percentage points.
Ibope's data confirmed the
trend shown in two polls pub-
lished earlier this week. Lula had
a 20-point advantage in a
Datafolha survey released on
Tuesday and a 22-point lead in
a Vox Populi poll issued on
Thursday.


Lula who campaigned in the
central agricultural state of
Minas Gerais on Friday spoke
of his victory as certain.
"You can be sure that Bra-
zil will be much better in 2010
when we finish our second
term," Lula told some 4,000
supporters.
Lula. Brazil's first working-
class president, was expected to
win the election in the first round
on October 1, but a political scan-
dal, in which police caught aides in
his Workers' Party trying to buy a
dossier intended to smear oppo-
nents, undermined his campaign.
As in previous corruption
scandals that have plagued his
government, Lula says he was
unaware of the dirty tricks plot
and acknowledged he would
face punishment if an investiga-
tion showed money from his
campaign was involved in the
scandal.
The effects of the scandal
have largely worn off, but a po-
lice investigation of the dossier
scandal may still provide the
opposition with new pretexts to
attack Lula.

Editorial) CHALLENGES GECOM, GDF PROBE


Editorial Viewpoint By RICKEY SINGH

THERE ARE two issues of national importance that I feel
should be treated with priority and impartiality across the
political divide.
These are the restructuring of the Guyana Elections
Commission (GECOM) to bring an end to the highly
controversial and undesirable practice of its politicisation with
equal representation by nominees of parliamentary parties and
a chairman chosen by the President, in his discretion, from a
list of names submitted by the Opposition Leader.
This formula, originally recommended by President Jimmy
Carter for the October 1992 elections, evidently proved useful
as part of the overall arrangements for the restoration of electoral
democracy after successively rigged elections, since 1968, during
the dispensation of governance by the People's National
Congress.
It has since become equally evident that the formula,
intended specifically for the 1992 elections, has lost its appeal
amid recurring and costly time-wasting squabbles, to say the
least, among political nominees seemingly committed more to
party loyalty than objectively performing their functions with
perceived diligence and integrity.
The Commonwealth Observer Group, which was
among overseas monitoring missions for the August 28
regional and national elections, has been quite explicit in
its report in favour of a reconfiguration of GECOIM, the
sooner the better.
The very significant fact that. like ALL other observer
missions the Commonwealth team had endorsed the August 28
poll as free and fair. should in no way preclude an objective
critical review by the governing and opposition parties in
changing the structure and functions of GECOM.
They need to consider why Guyana should not seek to be
more responsive to electoral arrangements and institutional


mechanisms as exist in other CARICOM states, instead of
prolonging the composition of an elections body whose
uniqueness in our Community of sovereign states today seems
as undesirably complex, if not also undemocratic, in the manner
parties are permitted to contest elections and parliamentary
representatives are chosen.
In the prevailing circumstances, the governing and
opposition parties ought to pay some attention to current
political developments in Jamaica in relation to elections
campaign financing and the creation of an independent
Elections Commission accountable to Parliament.
The Electoral Commission (Interim) Act, approved in the
Jamaica Senate last week, provides for the transformation of
the Electoral Advisory Committee (EAC) to an Elections
Commission comprising representation based on professional,
technical merit and not party affiliation.
Among the proposed "legal teeth", the Jamaica Elections
Commission will have supervisory powers over campaign
financing. Other examples of an elections mechanism and its
functioning that Guyana could consider would be what obtains
in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.

GDF GUN PROBE
THE second issue of national importance pertains to
various calls, according to statements/letters in the local
media, for an independent probe into the mysterious and
quite alarming disappearance of 33 AK-47 rifles and five
pistols from the armoury of the Guyana Defence Force.
Some of the recovered stolen weapons have since been
identified as having been used in acts of murder and armed
robberies by captured criminals.
Necessity for a Commission of Inquiry becomes
increasingly clear with tlie contradictions, thlie double-speak of
top security officials (police and army) and lingering unanswered


questions on how such a major theft could have gone
undetected and unresolved, for so long with no CREDIBLE
explanation offered to the PUBLIC.
A letter writer in the Stabroek News last week, signed R.
Cumberbatch, argued strongly in favour of an independent probe
and raised some very pertinent questions why this ought to be
done in the national interest.
President Bharrat Jagdeo should perhaps explain why
he does not think it necessary assuming he really feels
this way.
As happened in the case of the high-level Presidential
Commission of Inquiry into allegations made against then
Home Affairs Minister Ronald Gajraj, that found "NO
CREDIBLE (my emphasis) evidence" to involve him
in raging allegations of extra-judicial killing of persons",
the Chief of Staff of the GDF, Edward Collins, may well
find it useful, in his own professional interest and the
integrity of the army he leads, to welcome an independent
probe into those stolen guns.

UNIQUE 'REBUKE' OF A PRIME MINISTER



Case of T&T Government vs the opposition


WHILE in Jamaica pre-elections party politics remain focused
on the so-called 'Trafigura scandal', and Prime Minister
Portia-Simpson Miller mulls her options, across in Trinidad
and Tobago, Prime Minister Patrick Manning finds himself in
an unenviable position amid growing speculations of a likely
snap national poll.
NManning's worry is far different to that of Sinmpson-Miller's.
But it is a position in which no head of government in a democratic
state would like to be placed. Indeed, it is quite unique.
Last week. the Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister was con-
fronted with the unprecedented political development in our region's
post-indepeadence systems of governance of having to face public
reprimand from both his Attorney General (John Jercmic) and the
Director of Public Prosecution (Geoffrey Henderson).
His offence was to have crossed the bounds of recognized po-
litical correctness last Sunday when he went on the warpath
against parliamentary opponents of the fledgling Congress of People
(COP). including its leader and
former Central Bank Governor,
Winston Dookeran.
At the tinime. Manning was ad-
dressing the 41st Annual Conven-
tion of his ruling People's National
Movement (PNM) which is confi- "' "
dently boasting of a third consecu- -
tive term in government when a
new election is held whether be- "
fore Christmas or after Cricket .
World Cup 2007.11
Manning was evidently stung
by a statement in parliament a few
days earlier (October 13) by
Dookeran challenging him to ex-
plain to the public exactly what
"prior knowledge" he. as then Op- PRIME MINISTER
position Leader. had claimed to PATRICK MANNING
have about the aborted Musliiceni
coup of July 27. 1990, according to 'Hansard' (official record of
parliament ).


MANNING'S OFFENSIVE
There wais also hantiin atl the limle. an:ohlier challenge froll

budget which the ('OP leadr has missed'. due to an adnmilltted laill
of his own.

nin' chose (t erl'i d,'r.: t A In 'l ',', i t'inilio by challenging the COP


leader to "send packing" two of his parliamentary colleagues.
According to Manning,. tie MPs were "corrupt. dishonest nis-
crealnts" when they serO'\d as cabinetl miniiisters (ill a then [ UNC go\ -
ernmenl).
The Prinme Minister called no names buti his innuendoes were
nore than implicit as lie boasted of his knowledge that thlie two al-
leged political "miiscreants" would soon be caught by the law for
their "sins of stealing imoie\ from tlie people of Tl'rinidad and To-
bago..."
Mainning was to haic experienced, to his undoubtedly deep dis-
coforit tlie public rebuke that awaited hliin front unexpected quar-
lers the following day (October 1Id).
He discovered that while there may be conflicting inter-
pretations about his reported "prior knowledge" of the
Muslimeen's coup attempt against the government of then
Prime Minister ANR Robinson, (of which Dookeran was a se-
nior cabinet minister), the implications of his outburst against
alleged corrupt MPs on the opposition benches, were simply
too much for both Attorney General Jeremie and DPP
Henderson.

SALUTARY REMINDER?
Probably against the backdrop of the earlier controversies that
had raged over claimed political ilnterferelnces by tlie offices of the
Prime Minister. AG and DPP involving alleged inappropriate cotn-
duct by embattled Chief Justice Satnarine Sharnia (a matter cur-
rently before the Privy Council in London) botli .eremic and
llenderson swiftly distanced hliemttselves froni aln\ inference of in1-
volvemienl in pending legal action against the unidentified COP par-
liamentarians.
The Allorney General was to tell the media that hle had already
spoken with Ihe Prime Minister about tlie implications of his slate-
iiinl nit ade on "a political plall'rmn" (PNM convention).
The DPP was more specific in declaring itlha lie had "no knowl-
edge" of llie allegations by the Prinme Minister and Ihat his office
had no files on pending legal acltio on corruption allealion< *''" ..

had left early. According to his PNM's statement last Wednesday.
he had walked out because heI was disgusteded" by the contribution
being made by Dookeran (then acting Primne Minister).

BURNING QUESTIONS
What is of striking relevance is not whose interpretation is
accepted of Hansard's account of "prior knowledge" of the
Muslimeen coup. Rather, why successive governments, start-
ing from what had remained of Prime Minister Robinson's ad-
ministration in 1990 to those of Manning's PNM and Panday's
UNC, and back to Manning's had failed to establish
an independent Commission of Inquiry into that Janaat-al-
Muslim's grab for state power.
It was a tragedy that resulted in at least 27 known deaths:
widespread destruction and damage, and Prime Minister Robinson
wounded by gunfire and held hostage. To this day. there are still
no credible explanations why the public inquiry has not taken
phwc.
Equally disturbing, and quite related, is why the Manning ;ad
ministration has not yet taken legal action to have Abu Bakr's Jamaat
pay up, as authorised by the court, approximately USS10 million
('T'$60 million) owed to the state for destruction and
damage resulting from the aborted 1990) coup.
What is known is that the foderhd plyed poli-
ticsin.a.so... i. t leader had played poli-
tics in lavour 1,i ine NC and PNM at successive general elec-
tions as lie kept switching support.
I'here. therefore. continues to be troubling questions that could
perhaps best be answered -including who knew what and when -
by an independent Colnmlission of Inqtuiry into the 1990 Muslimcen
coup.
To judge Iroin irevailing o illnonis of the goveCrning and opposi-
lion parties, the ghost of thal utnsutccCssful grab lor stale power.
and failure to have an indepeidelnt public probe could well be a
haunting factor for the colinig general election.
Another sensitive and divisive issue could he alleged po-
litical attempts to undermine tilhe independence ofl' the justice
administration system, with lasi i'eek's unique reprimandn'
of a Primel Minister surfacing as a controversial reference
poiit.

Lobbying in U.S. important



to Caribbean interests


(The writer is a business executive and former Caribbean
diplomat who publishes widely on small states in the
global community)

A STRONG lobby for Caribbean interests in Washington
is becoming increasingly more important as, despite rheto-
ric to the contrary, governments of other countries are ag-
gressively seeking the U.S. government's attention.
The need for a strong lobby in Washington on issues vital
to the region has been advocated by several regional conunmen-
tators, me included. Others include David Jessop, Director of
the Caribbean Council for Europe, Dr Anthony Bryan. Profes-
sor Emeritus at the University of Miami, and Dr David Lewis.
Vice President of Manchester Trade based in Washington.
A few weeks ago I drew attention to the latest initiative
by European Union (EU) tax officials to try to extend the LEu-
ropean Union Savings D'rectivc (EUSD) to Hong Kong,
Singapore, Japan, Macao, Bahrain, Dubai, Canada and the Ba-
hamas. and I urged that the Caribbean keep a close eye on this
development in order to protect their low-lax .jurisdictions and
preserve their financial services industry.
The EUSD requires countries either to provide informa-
tion on interest paid into the bank accounts of lU citizens to
the tax collectors in their country of origin, or to apply a with-
holding tax on the interest payments that is then remitted to
the revenue departments of the relevant EU countries.
I pointed out that when, in 2001. Ihe Organisation for Eco-
nomic Cooperation and Development (OEiCD) launched its
"Harniful Tax Competition Initiative" in which it blacklisted
several Caribbean countries, EU countries were the principal
advocates of the initiative.
I also recalled that. fortunately, the Republican adminis-
r;'"i",n which came to power in the United Slates under Presi-
dent George W. Bush, disagreed with the high-tlax stance im-
plicit in the OECD initiative, and this helped to weaken ithe
OECD resolve, and dampened the enthusiasm for punishing ju-
risdictions with low tax offshore financial cencres.
On October llth, EU Ambassadors gave (lie European
('E.imipnission (EC) a iandatiie tol start exploratory talks oni
the EUSIJS) With Hong Kong, u.im"apore aud Miactao. This


mandate is significant because just the week before
Singapore refused to discuss the matter with the EU, and
Hong Kong indicated that it would not provide informa-
tion on the finances of foreigners. Nonetheless, EU Am-
bassadors proceeded with their mandate.
Then, as David Jessop wrote recently. during negotiations
between EU and Caribbean countries over the EU's proposed
Economic Partnership Agree-
ments, Caribbean representa-
tives rejeclcd proposals from
Europe thatt sought to place
conditions on the availability of
development assistance if the -
region did not fully comply
with OlECD financial services '
initiatives". Nonetheless,. the -
IV' has "reserved the light t to
reintroduce these issues into
negotiations at a later stage".

lobbying in Washington is important.
Dealing with a complaint earlier this year by Trinidad and
Tobago's Prime Minister. Patrick Manning, that there is a lack
of interest in the region by the U.S. in matters of trade and
drug trafficking. Professor Anthony Bryan said that the twin-
island state needed "a strong lobby in Washington". Professor
Bryan is reported to have made the pointed remark that stay-
ing in the Caribbean and complaining about the U.S. will not
work.
Dr David Lewis, from a vantage point in Washington it-
self. \where his organisation sees groups of countries intensely
lobbying the U.S. administration and Congress on issues vital
to their welfare, has long argued that the Caribbean needs to
engage the U.S. proactively.
HIe has pointed out that Caribbean Ministers met the former
U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman who left his post one

The Human Cost of the Iraq War


THE final indignity, if you
are an Iraqi who was shot for
accidentally turning into the
path of a U.S. military con-
voy (they thought you might
be a terrorist), or blown apart
by a car bomb or an air
strike, or tortured and mur-
dered by kidnappers, or just
for being a Sunni or a Shia,
is that President George W.
Bush and Prime Minister
Tony Blair will deny that
your death happened. The
script they are working from
says (in Mr. Bush's words last
December) that only "30,000,
more or less" have been
killed in Iraq during and
since the invasion inl March,
2003.
So they have a huge inicen-
tive to discredit the report in the
British medical journal 'The
Lancet' this week that an extra
655.000 Iraqis have died since
the invasion in excess of the
natural death rate: 2.5 per cent
of the population. "1 don't con-
sider it a credible report." said
Mr. Bush. without giving any
reason why he didn't. "It is a
fairly small sample they have
taken and they have extrapo-
lated it across the country,"
said a spokesman of the Brit-
ish Foreigln Office. as if that
were an invalid methodology.
But it's not.
The study, led by Dr Les
Roberts and a team of epidemi-
ologists from the Bloomberg
School of Public Health at
Johns Hopkins University in


Baltimore, was based on a sur-
vey of 1.849 households, con-
taniing 12.801 people, at 47 dif-
ferent locations chosen at ran-
dom in Iraq. Teams of four Iraqi
doctors two men and two
women went from house to
house and asked the residents if
anybody had died in their fam-
ily since January. 2002 (fifteen
months before the invasion).
If anybody had, they then
inquired when and how the per-
son had died. They asked for
death certificates, and in 92 per
cent of cases the families pro-
duced them. Then the Johns
Hopkins team of epidemiolo-
gists tabulated the statistics and
drew their conclusions.
The most striking thing in
the study, in terms of credibil-
ity, is that the pre-war death rate
in Iraq for the period January
2002-March 2003, as calculated
from their evidence, \\was 5.5 per
thousand per year. That is vir-
tually identical to the U.S. gov-
ernment estimate of the death
rate in Iraq for the same period.
Then, from the same evidence.
they calculate that the death
rate since the invasion has been
13.3 per thousand per year. The
difference between the pre-war
and post-\\war death rates over a
period of forty months is
665.000 deaths.
More precisely, the deaths
reported by the 12.801 people
surveyed, when extrapolated to
the entire country, indicates a
range of between 426,369 and
793,663 excess deaths but the


sample is big enough that the
estimate of about 665,000 has
a 95 per cent certainty. What the
Johns Hopkins team has done
in Iraq is a more rigorous ver-
sion of the technique that is
used to calculate deaths in south-
ern Sudan and the eastern
Congo. To reject it. you miusi
either reject the whole discipline
of statistics, or you iiiusl quCes
tion the professional integrity\ of
those doing the survey.
The study. which \was
largely financed by the Nlassa-
chusetts Institute of,
Technology's Center for Inter-
national Studies, has been re-
viewed by four independent
experts. One of them. PaIul
Bolton of Boston University,
called the methodology "'excel-
lent" and said it was standard
procedure in a wide range of
studies he has worked on: "You
can't be sure of the exact nIum-
ber, but you can be quite s ure
that you are in thile right
ballpark."
This is not a political smear
job. Johns Hopkins University.
Boston University and MIT are
not fly-by-night institutions.
and people \\ho work there
have academic reputations to
protect. "'The Lancet'. founded
182 ars ago. is one of thlie old-
est and most respected medical
journals in the world. These
numbers are real. So what do
the\ mean'.
T\\ o-lhirds of a million
Iraqis have died since the in-
vasion who would almost all


be alive if it had not hap-
pened. Human Rights Watch
has estiniated that between
250,000 and 290,000 Iraqis
were killed during Saddam
Hussein's twenty-year rule.
so perhaps 40,000 people
might have been killed by'
SaddaLm between the invasion
and now if he had stayed in
poswser. (Though probably
not anything like that many.
really, because the great ma-
jority of Saddam's killings
happened during crises like
the Kurdish rebellion of the
late 1980s and the Shia revolt
after the 1990-91 Gulf War.)
Of the 650.000 excess
deaths since March. 2003, only
about 50.000 can be attributed
to stress, malnutrition, the col-
lapse of medical services as
doctors flee abroad, and other


side-effects of the
occupation. All the rest are vio-
lent deaths, and 31 per cent are
directly due to the actions of
foreign "coalition" forces.
The most disturbing thing is
the breakdown of the causes of
death.
Over half the deaths 56
per cent are due to gunshot
wounds, but 13 per cent are
due to air strikes. No terror-
ists do air strikes. No Iraqi
government forces do air
strikes. either,. because they
don't have combat
aircraft. Air strikes are done
by "coalition forces" (i.e.
Americans and British), and
air strikes in Iraq have killed
over 75,000 people since the
invasion.
Oscar Wilde once ob-
served that "to lose one


parent...may be regarded as a
misfortune; to lose both looks
like carelessness." To lose
75,000 Iraqis to air strikes
looks like carelessness, too.

German cottage destroyed by


meteor
BERLIN (Reuters) A fire
that destroyed a cottage near
Bonn and injured a 77-year-
old man was probably caused
by a meteor and witnesses
saw an arc of blazing light in
the sky. German police said
on Friday.
Burkhard Rick. a spokes-
man for the police in Siegburg
east of Bonn, said the fire gut-
ted the cottage and badly
burned the man's hands and
face in the incident on October
It.


"We sought assistance from
Bochum observatory and they
noted that at that particular mo-
ment the earth was near a field of
meteoroid splinter and it could be
assumed that particles had entered
the atmosphere." he said.
"The particles usually


don't reach the surface be-
cause they disintegrate in the
atmosphere," he added. "But
some can make it to the
ground. We believe this was
a bolide (meteoric fireball)
with a size of no more than
10 mm."

FALSE MEMORY AND THE LAW


MEMORY is a special men-
tal faculty tending to pre-
serve the continuity of men-
tal and social life. It may be
defined as conservation of
knowledge, or an active se-
lecting and restructuring of
information or a combination
of both.
The importance in under-
standing false memory cannot
be overemphasised, especially
in the law. Lives may depend on
it. One reason is that memory
is a human activity and as such
it is subjected to errors. Too
many cases have been lost or
won because of faculty memo-
ries. The problem becomes even
more complex in a highly stress-
ful environment of the courts
where astute lawyers can delib-
erately and even maliciously ask
questions to confuse competent
eye-witness. It must be said
that false memories is not the
handmaid of malicious persons
but of a poor and inefficient
learning process.
The human memory is a
very unreliable mechanism be-
cause so much is lost in so short
a time. Information to the sen-
sory memory (lasting within a
second) and the short-term
memory (lasting a few seconds)
are information that is lost per-
manently. Long-term memory
will develop as the sensory and
short-term memories are elabo-
rately rehearsed. Even then
more than two thirds are lost
within a week if not repeated.
In long-term memory, we en-
code information that agrees
with our present perception or
cognitive map. We take in posi-
tive information about people
and events we like and filter out
information that is in conflict.
Alternatively, we filter out posi-


tive information about people
we dislike.
We are constantly building
attitude, positive and negative,
about people, events and things.
These are most common in po-
litical and religious beliefs. Our
interpretation of dreams helps us
to explain some of the confusion
we experience in recall a fa-
miliar person in a strange place.
In some instances it may never
be recalled. Each time you view
a tape you notice new levels of
information. Quite often we will
insist on the correctness of
some recall item but later
proven to be wrong. In matters
of accidents, crimes, etc., these
are filled with emotions and a
million of bits and pieces of in-
formation are coming (input)
and going (forgetting). Try to
recall the detail of a crime scene
then go over the same that was
video-taped. One can readily
agree on the unreliability of the
recall.
The problem becomes more
complex and difficult as we ex-
amine memories involving
trauma such as sexual abuses in
childhood; memories that have
been repressed. This is known
as post traumatic stress disor-
der. Because of the shock, the
person becomes numb. It may
be weeks or months later that
the person can remember any-
thing. Some bits of information
may surface as nightmares. A
further problem lies in the recall
of information, which has been
diluted by related information or
information decayed by time
known as memory cognate fal-
libility.
When children or adults are
questioned, the stating of the
question may be suggestive,
leading the individual to answer


in accordance with the sugges-
tions. Further, if a child answers
and the police or psychologist
insists in rephrasing with a spe-
cific tone of voice, the child may
change to what the interrogator
wishes to hear. Even as we en-
code and accommodate informa-
tion, we do so with past expe-
riences and familiar languages.
When information is in conflict
with present knowledge there is
a tension in the encoding sys-
tem. We may have to restructure
the cognition map to fit the new
information or redefine the in-
formation (input) to what is
there already. For example, hear-
ing negative information about
someone we like will create ten-
sion: we will challenge the state-
ment, claim that the person is
prejudiced and ignore (or filter
out) the new information.
State dependent memory or
context dependent memory is
where the individual is able to
recall information when placed
in a similar state of mind. Alco-
holics who hide money are able
only to recall the correct place
of hiding if they are in that state
of drunkenness. The problem is
that we are not always able to
create the same state of mind to
help in the recall. This is no help
in matters of the law. Australian
psychologist Donald Thomson
demonstrated that \witnesses can
falsely identify someone in an
identification parade by merely
changing simple and irrele\ ant
context features. liven experi-
enced lawyers and police are
subject to this type of error.
Eyewitness identification is far
less reliable than juries typically
realise.
Personality' Memory Under
stress, and especially in cases of
trauiia. individuals undergo per-


sonality changes. Those who are
sensitive, with a lower level of
tolerance are likely to experi-
ence greater changes. They have
an external locus of control that
is easily changeable by environ-
mental factors. Individuals who
cope effectively with stress and
anxieties are less likely to
change their personality styles.
Such individuals are labelled as
hardy-personalities. They have
greater control of their lives and
have an internal locus of control.
Such individuals have greater
self-awareness and can antici-
pate problems in their lives.
Changes and threats become
challenges not despair. The ex-
ternal locus of control person
(sensitive to outside influences)
is more likely to change his
storv after hearing comments


from others or the media.
Time and Events
Another factor that affects
memory recall is time. A week
after an incident, we loose two
thirds of the information
learned. This is not the mere
passing of time but other infor-
mation learned tends to block
retrieving the older materials.
This is known as retroactive in-
terference. The more time
passes the greater the loss. If the
newer materials are far more im-
portant, the lesser will quickly
get buried and forgotten. It is
easy to understand the difficulty
in recall as evidence is collected
days and months later and cases
are tried years later. Even as we
try to repeat and refresh the in-
formation some will inevitable
be missed or lost, especially
those which we are asked to re-
member and how we recall them.
There is such a phenomenon as
photographic memory eideticc
memory) but few of us posses
it.
The memory has been stud-
ied for many years. In recent
time, these have become more
scientific and therefore more re-
liable. Anton Mesmer began to
formulate a theory, in 1773:
about animal magnetism which',
suggested that the body pro'-
duced magnetic fluids and whep
misaligned diseases result.
Alfred Binet, the originator of
mental tests and a lawyer by
training, used the term auto-


suggestion. He was influenced
by the work of Mesmer and
Jean Charcot who had advance
the practice of hypnosis. Hyp-
nosis reveals a great deal of re-
pressed or loss of memories but
only a third of the population
can be hypnotised. From hi,-
thesis was developed how
memory uses information and
that a compelling thought or idea
interferes with normal memory
processes. He concluded that
children and adults alike were
susceptible to memory distrac-
tions. Jean Piaget's work (1973)
on developmental psychology
showed a stage-wise develop-
ment of memory and images and
each stage of development has
limitations in recall, especially
in the younger children. Frederic
Bartlett (1886-1969) of Cam-
bridge University was a student
of memory expert Ebbinghaus.
His experimental approaches or
meaningful working materials are
relevant to our study and illus-
trate the falsity in recall of in-
formation with time passing.
Extreme emotions such
as crimes of passion and vio-
lent crimes can cloud memo-
ries, known as psychogenic
amnesia. The case in 1968 of
Sirhan Serham shooting
Robert Kennedy the accused
gradually recalled more un-
der hypnosis. However, hyp-
nosis recall is not always re-
liable.

ACP countries



unite cultural roots



of the Caribbean


By Ruben Sili6

THE' countries belonging to
the African, Caribbean and
Pacific (ACP) Group as-
sembled in the Dominican
Republic, where the 2nd Fo-
rum of Ministers of Culture
of this vast group of countries
was held, giving continuity to
the first meeting of that kind
held in 2003, in Dakar.
This time however, the min-
isters took a step forward by si-
multaneously launching the ACP
Cultural Festival, which re-
mained open to the public from
October 14 to 21.


The importance of the min-
isterial meeting is unquestion-
able, since it is in keeping with
the strategy to combine multi-
lateral policies that would en-
hance relations among the
Member States of this group of
countries that are linked to the
European Community. This po-
litical exercise can be perceived
as a quest to build trust and
greater rapprochement among
countries who work in different
areas to design and plan ways
of achieving co-operation for
development in all the priority
areas.
The ACP group, which has


existed for several years, has de-
veloped a high degree of
instittitionality. It has deepened
co-operation in basic areas of


can be considered as one of the
precursors for rapprochement
among the countries of the
Greater Caribbean; since prior to


_ The Greater

Caribbean This Week


development, with an emphasis
on.infrastructure, education and
health. Nevertheless, culture ac-
quired greater prominence and
dynamism following the first
ministerial meeting.
The functioning of the ACP


the existence of this
tricontinental group, relations
among Caribbean countries were
rather limited, given that each of
the still existing groups were not
necessarily interested in their
closest neighbour.


From our point of view,
socialisation among Greater
Caribbean countries, within the
ACP, was a crucial factor for the
emergence of the Association of
Caribbean States, since these
countries were compelled to
identify sub-regional similarities
among themselves, with a view
to achieving improved negotia-
tions with their European coun-
terparts, who were long-time
advocates for the consolidation
of increasingly extensive blocs
of countries.
The first African, Carib-
bean and Pacific Cultural Festi-
val represents a milestone in
the history of its member coun-
tries, not only due to its nov-
elty but also since it reinforces
the idea of cultural diversity as
a norm among peoples.
However, for the Caribbean
in particular, it offers our
peoples the opportunity to es-
tablish direct contact with two
of their major cultural roots: Af-
rica and the Pacific countries.
This importance stems from the
fact that among these peoples,
for understandable historic rea-
sons, there is still far more di-
rect contact with European cul-
ture than with African culture
and that of Pacific countries.
The festival covers broad
aspects of cultural manifestation
such as: music, contemporary
dance, traditional dances, visual
arts, concerts, ACP cinema, gas-
tronomy, fashion, cultural mar-
kets and meetings among pro-
fessionals. Such thematic diver-


e-_., cF
sity allows significant rap-
prochement among the peoples
represented, as well as mutual
understanding between culture
professionals and leaders, which
will undoubtedly result in the
strengthening of the national
and regional identities of all in-
volved. :
This festival serves as a tool
to practise awareness and appli-
cationI of cultural diversity and
plurality, which are so crucial in
this era of global liberalisation,
since,' according to UNESCO
"no culture is an island".
The ACP countries have
just created a remarkable
instrument to work for the
benefit of rapprochement
among peoples, since, un-
like other areas that need
to be negotiated, the cul-
tural issue is a fait accom-
pli that exists above our
level of awareness of it.
Therefore, it is a vector of
unity, primarily for our re-
gion, which is recognized
as a cultural mecca, in its
significance as a meeting
point for several areas,
since it is right here in the
Greater Caribbean, where
those other continental re-
alities converge.

Wanted man shot


dead in Agricola

POLICE early yesterday evening shot and killed wanted
man John Anthony Haywood called 'Kirby' of First Street,
Agricola, East Bank Demerara.
Eyewitnesses said that Haywood was riding a motor cycle
in the village when he was cornered by the Police.
A 12-year-old boy was also reportedly shot.. The child is
hospitalized, the Chronicle understands.
Last night, the village was quiet and the area where
the shooting occurred was cordoned off. Up to press time,
efforts to get the police on the shooting proved futile.

UN Delegations should consider St. Lucia


for Security Council Seat


Analysis by Council on
Hemispheric Affairs
Research Associate, Eytan
Starkman

GUATEMALA and Venezuela
have persistently fallen short
of the two thirds majority
needed to secure GRULAC's
(the UN's Latin American and
Caribbean caucus) seat in the
UN Security Council (UNSC)
after more than two days of
voting and 22 gruelling
rounds of balloting. On the
third day of voting, the re-
sults read: Guatemala 110,
Venezuela 77. Voting was
suspended on Tuesday until
October 19, giving Venezuela
and Guatemala's ringmaster
and vociferous supporter -
the United States time to
lobby other governments into
supporting their respective
camps, or to consider a com-
promised third nominee.
The Rise of a Third Can-
didate
Considering that
Guatemala's and Venezuela's as-
pirations might continue to fal-
ter, it would be prudent for UN
delegations, which may be look-
ing around for that third-coun-
try candidate to arise, to con-
sider the Caribbean nation of St.
Lucia.
St. Lucia is an English-
speaking country whose popu-
lation of nearly 170,000 enjoys
high literacy standards, relatively
low levels of corruption, a
transparent banking system, a
worthy environmental reputa-
tion, and a good record on com-
bating drug trafficking. It is in
every way a "model democ-
racy," and unlike Guatemala, it
has no ghosts in the closet. It is
also one of ten Caribbean nation
states which have never been
elected to the UNSC, as
Guyana, Cuba, Jamaica, and
Trinidad and Tobago have been
the region's only nations that
have been honoured with this
post.
St. Lucia has also demon-
strated sensitivity to issues of
stability and mutual respect for
national sovereignty. Its highly
regarded Prime Minister, Dr.
Kenny Anthony is looked upon
as one of the Caribbean area's
most respected figures. Unlike
Guatemala, it has an exemplary
human rights record and has
been very responsive to inter-
national agreements.
In the mid 1990s, St. Lucia
actively backed UNSC Resolu-
tion 940 to restore democracy
in Haiti after three years of bru-
tal control by a military junta,
thus supporting former Presi-
dent Aristide's return to power
peacefully. Prime Minister An-
thonv stood behind President
Arislide even after lie was,
forced to flee' laiti in 2004. in-


sisting that the leader continued
to be the lawful president of
Haiti. After that. St. Lucia.
along with most of the
CARICOM nations, refused to
recognize the U.S.-backed in-
terim government of G6rard
Latortue. Nevertheless, Prime
Minister Anthony's distaste to-
wards Washington's de facto
ousting of President Aristide has
not challenged his commitment
to the poverty-wrecked citizens
of neighboring Haiti. Since
Aristide's last forced departure.
Anthony has repeatedly headed
delegations seeking to integrate
Haiti into the CARICOM com-
mon market and also has par-
ticipated in the monitoring of
Haitian elections. As such. St.
Lucia deserves to receive consid-
erable appreciation for its con-
sistent endeavours to favour co-
operation and the use of peace-
ful means over unilateral action
and the resort to force, as vali-
dated by its regional leadership
and unqualified neutrality.

U.S. Support
Despite its disagreement
with Washington on the han-
dling of Haiti, St. Lucia has
proven to be a strong ally of
Washington's legitimate aspira-
tions, signing numerous bilateral
treaties including a Maritime
Law Enforcement Agreement
and an Extradition Treaty in
a joint effort to thwart illegal
drug trafficking to the U.S. and
Europe. The island is also a re-
gional leader in encouraging for-
eign direct investment (FDI),
boasting one of the most diver-
sified manufacturing sectors in
the region and a promising tour-
ism industry. Not surprisingly.
the majority of tourists visiting
the paradisiacal island are U.S.
citizens, suggesting that good
diplomatic relationships be-
tween the two are highly ben-
eficial for both parties.

Venezuelan Support
If Venezuela's candidacy
continues to falter, and the
UNSC seat remains outside of
Caracas' and Guatemala City's
grasp, Venezuela's Hugo
Chavez might like to see a mem-
ber of CARICOM, a bloc of
Caribbean nations friendly to
Caracas, obtain the Council's
non-permanent seat.
Venezuela's relationship with
St. Lucia has been entirely close
and constructive as the small
nation is one of the 13 Carib-
bean nations that signed
Venezuela's Petrocaribe initia-
tive, in which state-owned
Petroleos de Venezuela
(PDVSA) will supply oil with
an extraordinarily low one per
cent interest rate in an effort to
relie\ e poorer nations from high
ien'Ii'y o' s., hlh' servicing ti e
s li, lijs I ,', l o p( 'tr- l I' lIl


imports.
In addition, Caracas would
likely support St. Lucia's bid
because it refused to join Presi-
dent Bush's "coalition of the
willing," choosing not to sup-
port the invasion of Iraq, an ac-
tion viewed by President Hugo
Chaivez's government as U.S.
imperialism at its apogee.

Viability of St. Lucia's
Candidacy
Almost all of the other
"appropriate" Latin Ameri-
can countries are disqualified
for one reason or another.
transforming St. Lucia into a
model candidate for the
UNSC seat. Since Guatemala
and Vene/tela would have
something approaching a de
e' ma \',O w -. M 10 ..lld


replace it in the race, with
geographical proximity being
a key determining factor.
Caracas would find the
nearby island with which it
has always had cordial rela-
tions and a most suitable
neighbour, to provide an ear
for its voice. Guatemala, on
the other hand, might be less
inclined to favour St. Lucia's
candidacy due to Prime Min-
ister Anthony's recent state-
ment which called for "inde-
pendent" voices which will
not "take instructions from
one or other countries" to
obtain a seat on the C(ouncil:
referring to Washington's
lakeo\ er of Guatemala's sce-
nario to obtain the UNSC
seat. Nevertheless, consider-
iino i hthat o ashmLnoi n and


Guatemala might be inter-
ested in manifesting a good
will gesture to the 15-nmem-
her CARICOM group, they
might be interested in pow-
wowing with the small but
worthy island.
Given these realities,
St. Lucia could be the most
appropriate candidate to
end the fierce politicking


now taking place between
the U.S. and Venezuela,
and its name might be very
well tossed into the race in
the next round of voting
since neither Venezuela
nor the U.S. has much to
gain by having this process
being drawn out any longer.

ber 10, has prompted expres-
sions of concern by the Na-
tional AIDS Committee
(NAC) on several fronts in-
cluding confidentiality, ad-
equate counsellor capacity
and appropriate medical and
social environments.
The organisation, which
quoted a Kaieteur News article
on the subject, said it has noted
its concerns in a letter to Health


Minister. Dr. Leslie
Ramsamnuuy. According to the
Kaieteur News edition of Octo-
ber 18, Minister Ramsaminmy
said HIV/AIDS testing "will be
done at street comers, in health
centres, schools, basically ev-
erywhere" on November 10.
The measures proposed by
the Ministry, the NAC charged,
suggest that the "unprecedented
scale of funding Guyana has at-
tracted to combat HIV/AIDS in
the past decade is not having
the intended effect. If this is the


case, the NAC said it has rec-
ommended that relevant stake-
holders should encourage a more
systematic method of monitor-
ing and evaluation which would
reveal the national picture in ad-
dition to the proposed 'one-to-
one discussions' with individu-
als.
But Minister Ramsammy
told the Chronicle yesterday
that plans for November 10.
designated 'HIV/AIDS Testing
Day in Guyiana.'. will proceed.
I IHe said he hopes "Ceveryone \\ ill


support us".
In a release to the press
yesterday, NAC said the ini-
tiative appears to be influ-
enced by the major shift in
policy announced by the US
Department of Health last
month which recommends
HIV testing be made a more
routine procedure. Health
authorities in the US, the
NAC said, justified the new
policy on the grounds that 50-
70 per cent of all new infec-
tions are caused by infected


persons who are unaware of
their own status.
In the local context, the
NAC said it supports policies
and programmes which make
testing more readily available,
but only in conformity with the
conditions long established in
the National Policy on HIV/
AIDS.
"The National Policy states
there must be no obligatory test-
ing, persons must be offered
pre- and post-test counselling,
consent of parents or guardians
must be obtained prior to test-
ing of children, and that quali-
fied counsellors must be avail-
able at all medical institutions to
provide counselling," the NAC
said.
It added that random HIV
testing of large numbers of per-
sons in the Guyanese context
assumes medical and ethical
considerations including the
availability of a large number of
trained counsellors; adequate
treatment and follow-up adher-
ence available for all persons
tested positive; the capacity to
sustain confidentiality of per-
sons tested; a medical environ-
ment respectful of the human
dignity of affected persons; and
a social environment in which
stigma and discrimination are a
thing of the past.
"While it is possible that
such conditions can be met in
the U.S., Guyana cannot cur-
rently meet any of them," NAC
said.
Acknowledging that the
Health Ministry's approach to
testing is intended to reduce fear
of being tested, the NAC nev-
ertheless said the method being
advocated smacks of despera-
tion.
"Unless there is evidence of
epidemic-scale levels of infected


persons who need to be 'cap-
tured' by testing, a preferable
approach would be to ensure


testing facilities in all medical
institutions provide rapid, user-
friendly, confidential and
anonymous opportunities for
testing and counselling,' NAC
said, adding that undoubtedly,
stigma and discrimination are
the major barriers in discourag-
ing potential infected persons
from taking the responsible step
of being tested.
Minister Ranmsammy said
the plan will proceed, particu-
larly against the backdrop of
having, this year, enough trained
people for 100 testing sites in
the country.
The NAC said it supports
the idea of an HIV/AIDS test-
ing day devoted to highlighting
its importance once certain con-
ditions are met.
"Without meeting such
conditions, the initiative de-
values the concept of testing,
sets the stage for compulsory
testing and risks exposing
Guyana to ridicule," the
NAC is contending.

CHAIRMAN'S COMMENTS

I am pleased to advise that our Bank has continued to make good progress, recording
another successful financial year ended September 30, 2006. In fiscal 2006, our
Bank achieved its highest ever after tax profit in 169 years of operations and surpassed
the one billion dollars milestone by recording a Profit after Tax of $1,033M. This
represents a 30.66% increase over the $791.OM realized in 2005. Our focus on
customer service, control of expenses, and prudent risk management led to this
outstanding performance.

Your Board of Directors has recommended a final dividend of $1.00 per stock unit
or $300 million (2005 $0.80 per stock unit or $240 million) which when added
to the interim dividend of $0.40 per stock unit brings the total dividend for the
financial year to $1.40 per stock unit or $420 million (2005 $1.05 per stock unit
or $315 million) for the year. This represents a payout of 40.64% of net profit and
an increase of 33.33% over last year's payment.

We remain confident of the continued year-on-year improvement in the Bank's
financial performance and we are optimistic that the promised improvement in the
political, legal and economic climate will materialize to allow the private sector to
achieve its full potential.

LOCAL


COMPANIES


TO GET


TECHNICAL


ASSISTANCE
SEVERAL local companies in the agriculture sector have been
singled out by a high-level British/Caribbean trade team to
receive technical assistance aimed at strengthening and
developing their businesses while at the same time promoting
and creating trade linkages and markets for their agri-
products.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the British Caribbean
Chamber of Commerce (BCCC). Mrs. Pauline Wade. Friday
indicated that the Chamber has already identified some companies
here to receive technical assistance and with the overall aim of
assisting these business to "look at producing more for the domestic
markets, the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) and
eventually the international markets."
Speaking with this newspaper via telephone Friday,
Wade, who is heading the BCCC delegation here in
Guyana, noted that the Chamber has had fruitful
discussions with some of the entities and agencies in the
agriculture sector of Guyana including the National
Agricultural Research Institute (NARI).
She noted that the BCCI and the Georgetown Chamber of
Commerce and Industry (GCCI) signed a Cooperation Agreement
(MOU) in 2003 to deliver a Pro-Invest Project funded by the
European Union (EU) to develop and strengthen agri-businesses in
Guyana.
According to Wade, the Pro-Invest project is aimed at actually
developing the technical capabilities within the Guyanese agri-
business sector and noted that the GCCI is a facilitator in the
process. Also, members of both Chambers can benefit from the
cooperation pact which will offer companies sales leads and contact
lists via the British-Caribbean Desk based at the Georgetown
Chamber.
She noted that one of the first projects under that Pro-
Invest began in earnest following discussions between the
BCCC and the former Agriculture Minister Mr. Satyadeow
Sawh. She noted that the project began in February this year
but was put on hold following the assassination of Minister
Sawh in April.
The Pro-Invest project has now restarted, and Wade said she
looks forwards to a good working relationship between the Chamber
and the agri-business sector in Guyana.
Wade also noted that trade links between Britain and the
Caribbean are centuries old and whilst relationships have changed
over the years, the same mutual interests and opportunities for
bilateral trade are as strong today as they have always been.
She said the BCCC, as part of a global network of Chambers
of Commerce across the world, exists to promote bilateral trade as
well as educational and cultural opportunities on behalf of
companies and individuals interested in Britain and the Caribbean.
She also noted that the Chamber's headquarters in
Trinidad and Tobago is ideally placed to offer all companies,
large and small, the chance Jo enter a new and exciting

16 SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 22, 2006






IValu*e dAded "TCax 3"Woteboolk
Value Added Tax (VAT) is being introduced in Guyana on January 01, 2007. In this article, the Commissioner Genera
of the Guyana Revenue Authority (Mr Khurshid Sattaur), who is responsible for the administration of the new tax,
describes the preparations that are being made for VAT, what the new tax will mean for the business community and
the general public and how you can get assistance or advice.


No one likes paying tax.....but taxes are necessary. They pay for education, hospitals, roads, welfare services and national security.
It is right, therefore, that every citizen should make a contribution to the running of the State. However, every citizen also has the right to expect
that he or she is paying only a correct and fair amount and that they are not contributing more than is necessary because others have avoided
paying their share.
To achieve this, any tax must be well run, include the widest range of potential taxpayers, raise the maximum amount of revenue for the
minimum cost and be protected against fraud without placing an unnecessary burden on the taxpayer or businesses, or interfering with the
free flow of legitimate trade.
Value Added Tax, or VAT as it is popularly known, meets these requirements. That is why it has been chosen by the Government as part of its
plans to modemise, simplify and streamline Guyana's taxation system.
VAT is a tax on domestic consumption and, from January 01 next year, it will be applied to most goods and services supplied for use or benefit
in Guyana. The rate of tax will be 16 per cent of the selling price, or the cost of the service supplied.
The tax will be collected by registered businesses when they make sales to their customers and, at regular monthly intervals, these registered
businesses will have to pay the tax they have collected to the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA).


Although it may not immediately appear so, VAT is, in fact, good news for everyone in Guyana the Government, the business community and
the consumer. It brings many benefits.
First, it will replace eight existing taxes Consumption Tax, Hotel Accommodation Tax, Telephone Tax, Travel Voucher Tax, Premium Tax,
Purchase Tax, Entertainment Tax and Service Tax and will therefore be very much more efficient and cost effective. Less money will be spent
on the cost of administration and more will be available in revenue for the Government to spend on its economic, social and development
programmes.
In addition, because VAT taxes most goods and services, more members of the community become taxpayers. This means that the taxation
burden is spread and more people who benefit from Government spending make a contribution towards it.
VAT is also difficult to cheat because it generates a trail of invoices and receipts that can be audited and checked.
It is therefore a very fair system for everyone.
And, because tax is not paid on exports, or savings, it enables Guyana's exporters to be competitive in world markets and encourages saving
rather than spending.
However, VAT on its own will not raise all of the revenue previously collected by the eight taxes it replaces. With the introduction of VAT,
therefore, Excise Duty will also be imposed on January 01, 2007 to make up the shortfall.


In preparation for VAT, my Department has begun the registration of those business and individuals required by law to be "VAT-registered," or
"Excise-registered."
Any business with an actual or expected annual turnover in excess of $10,000,000 must be registered for VAT and any business dealing with
Excise goods must be registered for Excise before January 01, 2007. There are heavy penalties for failing to register but we are doing our best
to help responsible businesses meet their obligations.
We have already conducted a comprehensive publicity campaign to alert businesses of the requirement to register and we are currently
contacting potential VAT-registered businesses directly. These are mainly the larger business concerns, although, in some cases, smaller
businesses will be allowed to register voluntarily, if they meet certain requirements and if it makes commercial sense for them to do so.
If anyone is unsure of their liability to register they should contact the GRAVAT Office immediately and advice will be given.
There is a big advantage for businesses that are registered. Although they are required to account for the VAT they charge and keep records
and receipts for audit, they are able to reclaim the majority of VAT they incur on their business expenses and their overhead costs are,
therefore, lower. Businesses or individuals who are not registered will not be allowed to charge VAT on sales or services. However, because
they will not be able to reclaim VAT on their purchases of goods and other business expenses, their business costs will be higher and their
prices may reflect this.





SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 22, 2006_'1






Valxue dded 4T1Iaxc INoteb 1cokV (Continued)



I should like the business community to appreciate that we are working towards a system based on mutual co-operation between them and the
GRA that will lead to efficient and voluntary compliance with the VAT Act.
We are committed to providing professional and helpful support and it is our intention over the coming months, and beyond the introduction of
the new system, to ensure that businesses are indeed provided with the proper help and advice to enable them to deal with the new VAT
requirements.
In order to provide businesses with the maximum assistance, we are publishing a series of information leaflets, developing the GRA website and
e-mail facilities and establishing a telephone "Help Line," manned by expert GRA staff, to provide information and to deal with enquiries about
the technical details of VAT. Our officers will also make educational visits to businesses, once they register, to ensure that they are fully prepared
to meet their legal VAT obligations.
There is no need for business people to be overly concerned about the new system. Although VAT is a self-assessed tax by businesses, the
administrative task should not be too burdensome for them. They will normally be able to meet their obligations using standard methods of
accounting.
However, if your business is liable to be registered, I would encourage you to register, as soon as possible, so that you can receive the
assistance that my Department can provide in a timely manner.
Our assistance will, in fact, enable the vast majority of honest business people to comply easily with their obligations, accurately assess their tax
liabilities and pay their tax on time, while allowing us to concentrate on protecting the revenue by targeting our efforts on persistent non-
compliant traders and fraudsters.

I want businesses to understand that the VAT system will be based on trust. My Department is aiming for a minimum level of auditing and
interference with the day-to-day operations of honest and compliant business persons. However, if they betray our trust, or if they persistently
ignore their obligations, they could incur heavy penalties. They must be aware that fraud, or deliberate or repeated non-compliance, will not be
tolerated and will be prosecuted.

As a result of VAT, the cost of some goods and services will increase and some will cost less. This is because the taxes that VAT is replacing
currently have different rates some lower and some much higher that the 16 per cent of VAT.
However, VAT is intended to have a neutral effect and the aim is that consumers will pay no more tax under VAT than they do at present.
There are a number of safeguards in the VAT Law to protect the consumer, including severe penalties for fraud. It must be remembered that
dishonest people who deliberately attempt to avoid proper payment of tax are damaging both the State and the public they are stealing the
taxpayers' money.
The Law also requires registered VAT businesses to display a VAT Certificate to prove that they are legally authorised to charge VAT and they
must also include VAT in their price tickets and advertisements. A customer must be informed how much he or she will have to pay including
the VAT before reaching the cash till.
To further assist the consumer, we will be publishing a public information notice, "VAT and the Consumer," which will be delivered to every
household in Guyana, to explain how VAT works. This will be followed by a further notice giving details of what items are taxable and those that
are tax free. This will help consumers to ensure that they are not being charged VAT illegally.
Consumers can also help to defeat fraud by asking to receive a proper receipt for all of their purchases and by reporting any suspicious
circumstances to my Department. We will assist by continuing to keep the public properly informed about the new system.
I am confident that there will be a smooth introduction of VAT on January 1 next year and I believe it will make a vital contribution to the
economic success of the State and its people by reducing the cost of collection and providing a greater proportion of tax collected for funding
essential services and or all concerned.
I should like to assure the public and the trading community that my Department will administer the new tax system fairly and efficiently.

rejected his unglossed anti-
Americanism this week by

A SPEECH TOO FAR
In his U.N. General Assem-
bly speech last month. Chavez
told the audience of heads of
state. ambassadors and world
dignitaries that the chamber still
reeked of sulfur after Bush
spoke there a day earlier.
While he drew applause and
laughter., lie displayed a rheto-
ric that contrasts with diplo-
matic Latin American heavy-
weights such as Brazil and
Mexico that generally take inde-
pendent stances but avoid con-
flicts.
"As much as there might be
anti-Americanism around., other
governments do not see him as
a leader." said Michael Shifter of
the Washington-based think
tank the Inter-American Dia-
logue.
'"This shows that style and
language do matter and lie went
too far."
Chavez will undoubtedly
keep up his anti-American ha-
rangues and has shown in the
past he can rebound from losses.
such as returning to power only
days after a coup in 2002.
But losing to Guatemala
limits his international profile
and could hurt his prestige at
Ihone.
The opposition, which
has accused him of focusing
on burnishing his image
abroad instead of tackling is-
sues such as crime at home.
said the U.N. vote showed he
was out of touch.
"It is an embarrassing
condemnation of the Cuban-
Castro model that he has
been promoting," election ri-
val Manuel Resales said.

Nicaragua poll



tips Ortega for



early vote win


MANAGUA, Nicaragua
(Reuters) Left-wing
Sandinista leader Daniel
Ortega has a 15-point lead
two weeks before
Nicaragua's November 5
presidential election and
could win the vote in the first
round, a new poll showed on
Friday.
The survey by Zogby Inter-
national gave 35 percent sup-
port to Ortega, a U.S. foe and
ally of Venezuela's Hugo
Chavez. Ortega is well ahead of
conservative Eduardo
Montealegre, whose pro-busi-
ness clean-government platform
appeals to Washington.
The poll is the second this
week to suggest that Ortega, 61,
could sweep back to power in
the first round of voting, 16
years after he was voted out by
a nation tired of his
government's punishing civil
war against U.S.-backed Contra
rebels.
Under Nicaraguan law, to


win in the first round a candi-
date needs to score 40 per cent
or 35 per cent with a five-point
lead.
Zogby gave 20 per cent to
U.S.-educated Montealegre,
who broke away from the rul-
ing Liberal Party to run as a cen-
tre-right candidate. It gave the
Liberal Party's Jose Rizo 16
percent.
Some two-thirds of Nicara-
guans with painful memories of
the hardships of Sandinista
years have voted conservative
in recent elections, but the Lib-
eral Party is also reviled by
many who see it as corrupt and
riven with cronyism.
On Wednesday, a broad sur-
vey conducted by a Nicaraguan
university and local media
groups gave Ortega a 37.5 per
cent share of the vote and a 17
point lead over Montealegre.
Ortega's lead is largely due
to the new split in the conser-
vative vote. Ex-financier
Montealegre says he stands for


a break with the past. A congres-
sional pact between the Liberals
and Sandinistas has kept both
parties powerful.
Ortega originally came to
power in a popular 1979 revo-
lution that ended a hated de-
cades-old dictatorship. He ruled
Nicaragua through the 1980s, at
the same time battling U.S.-fi-
nanced contra rebels in a civil
war that turned Nicaragua's
tropical highlands into battle-
fields, killed 30,000 people and
left the economy in tatters.
Ortega is an admirer of
Cuba's Communist leader Fidel
Castro.
U.S. Commerce Secretary
Carlos Gutierrez warned this
week that an Ortega victory
could scare off foreign investors
and hurt Nicaragua by unhinging
a regional free trade accord.
Zogby conducted a similar
poll in mid-September that
gave Ortega 34 per cent sup-
port and Montealegre 19 per-
cent.

Argentine

farming

riches spark

land reform

debate

By Maximilian Heath

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) Politicians and
church leaders are weighing into an increasingly heated
debate over who owns the fertile farmlands of Argentina,
which used to be known as the world's bread basket.
The large South American country is a top-five supplier of
soybeans, wheat, corn and beef, and while its farming exports
brought in about $12 billion last year, a third of Argentines live
below the poverty line.
Some say the ownership of most of the country's farm-
lands by a rich elite is partly to blame for such inequality, though
farming groups say concentration fosters greater productivity.
"The growth of conglomerates in the economy especially
the multinationals has produced a situation that's harmful to
small-holder farmers," said Luis D'Elia, a former protest leader
picked by the government to lead a land redistribution
programme.
D'Elia said 90 per cent of the country's productive lands
are owned by eight per cent of the population.
Meanwhile, Argentina's influential Catholic Church said re-
cently the lack of a state policy on land distribution was mak-
ing it hard for small-scale farmers to compete with big busi-
ness.
"For many small farmers, access to productive land is a
central problem due to the lack of adequate legislation that lim-
its the concentration (of land ownership) and widespread cor-
ruption," Argentina's Episcopal Conference said in a report.
However, some representatives of the crucial agricultural
sector say concentrated patterns of land ownership help raise
output levels.
"From a production viewpoint, concentration within cer-
tain limits is necessary for efficiency. It has competitive ad-
vantages related to buying and selling power," said Hugo
Biolcati. vice president of the Argentine Rural Society.
Like other South American countries, Argentina's most pro-
ductive farmlands have long been held by a few powerful land-
owners, But the recent debate has also focused on the pres-
ence of foreign landowners
"It's a consequence of globalization," said sociologist
Rosendo Fraga. "The land in Argentina today is immensely
cheaper than in other countries and this inevitably generates an
inflow of capital."
D'Elia used boll-cutters to destroy a fence and trespass on
land used by U.S. en\ironmentalisi Douglas Tompkins in north-
east Argeniua in Augusi. saying the American had blocked off
a road.
However, not everyone in the government thinks foreign
capital is necessarily bad for the country's farnung industry.
"Do I agree with foreigners buying farmland? This is
a young country) that was itself built on immigrationo" Ag-
riculture Secretary Miguel Campos said in a recent online
news conference. :

Mourinho hoping it will trig-
ger a flurry of goals from a

Ten minutes after the break, Andriy Shevchenko makes amends, stroking home Arjen
Robben's pull-back from 12 yards.


notched their biggest ever win in
the Premier League by thrash-
ing Manchester City 4-0 and
the two bottom clubs Charlton
Athletic and Watford met in a
0-0 draw.
Aston Villa drew 1-1 with
Fulham in the late kickoff.
Though Martin O'Neill's Villa
are still unbeaten. Saturday was
their third successive 1-1 draw
in the league and their fifth draw
in their last six league games.
Shevchenko's goal, albeit
deflected off Portsmouth de-


goal celebrations.
After scoring against
Liverpool in the Community
Shield on August 13 and then
against Middlesbrough in
Chelsea's only league defeat of
the season 10 days later.
Shevchenko had failed to score
in any of the nine Premier
League or Champions League
matches he has played in since
then.
The strike, which punc-
tured a superb display by
Pompey keeper David James,


"It was nice for him to
score a goal and a very impor-
tant goal for us," Mourinho told
reporters.
"David James made great
saves and I thought he would be
unlucky again then finally
Sheva's goal was there."
"Hopefully he will get con-
fidence."
Germany captain Ballack
headed his first league goal since
joining from Bayern Munich in
the close season after the ball
was nodded over by Ivory


Coast skipper Didier Drogba.
Mwaruwari kept Harry
Redknapp's men in the
game, bundling the ball
home after Portuguese
keeper Hilario failed to col-
lect the ball in a goalmouth
melee.
But an equaliser eluded
them and Pompey have not
won at Stamford Bridge for 51
years. Chelsea arc now un-
beaten at home in 49 league
matches.

pions League win over
Barcelona. Hilario was
deputising for Petr Cech and
Carlo Cudicini, who were both
knocked unconscious in last
weekend's win at Reading.

BEASTIE PENALTY
Everton needed just
over half an hour to secure
their win. Spanish
midfielder Mikel Arteta
opened the scoring and
James Beattie added a pen-
alty after United defender
Claude Davis was dis-
missed for bringing down
Andy Johnson in the box.
Two goals inside the first
four minutes set Wigan on
their way against Manchester
City.
Former England striker
Emile Heskey fired home
in the second minute and
City defender Richard
Dunne scored an own goal
soon afterwards. Senegal
forward Henri Camara and
Ecuador midfielder Luis
Antonio Valencia added two
more in the second half to
give Wigan their biggest win
in the 46 Premier League
matches they have played
since gaining promotion
last season.


Flintoff plays down Ashes



worries despite defeat


By N.Ananthanarayanan

JAIPUR, India (Reuters) England skipper Andrew Flintoff de-
nied Australia had gained any advantage ahead of next month's
Ashes despite his side suffering a six-wicket defeat in the
Champions Trophy yesterday.
nIgngland were virtually eliminated after their second defeat in
Group A as ihe world champions dismissed them for 169 and then
rompecl to 170 lor iour with 13.1 overs left.
"I'm disappointed." Flintoff said. "(3Bu) one thing in the build-
up to the game was people trying to link it to the A\ hes. We took
this ogaie in isolation, as a musti-win game for both sides to sta\ in
the ltonniaimenl.
"The Ashes will start in three \weeks lime when \\c oe! !o A\s-

llintoff denied England were ignoring one day cricket after their
recent success in Tests.
"I can assure you we take both fornis of cricket seriously.
We're ai proud team, we walnt to win a game of cricket," lie
said, referring to the final Group A tic against holders West
Indies.
"-iBut we need to improveC. II is an e exciting lime in one-dai cricket

The 33-year-old Fleming,
regarded as one of the most as-
tute minds in limited overs
cricket, will be leading in his
194th one-day international
when he walks out for the toss
with Pakistan's Younis Khan in
a Champions Trophy Group B
match in Mohali on Wednesday.

were scheduled for a play day.
"The original times were 18:00 h and 20:00 h. The triple-head-
ers went into the next morning. We don't want to be going home
Saturday morning, too, with a double-header. We indicated that we
would not turn up if the original times were not used. We did not
agree for the one match."
According to Cole, Camptown turned up but not to play in
the second match, indicating that city teams were ordered not to
participate further in the tournament.
The other team, Western Tigers, were willing to play, pointing
out the club did not receive the withdrawal directive in writing and
further contended it was a Guyana Football Federation (GFF)-sanc-
tioned tournament and the GFF would have to give such a direc-
tive. However, they wanted to play under bona fide referees.
Cole related that to help promote football in Buxton, an
Under-20 match was arranged between a team from that com-
munity and Conquerors, but the Georgetown Football Asso-
ciation (GFA) was not officially informed and the match was
called off.
However, the GFA wanted to stage a Premier League match
between Conquerors and Flamingo on the very day of the Fruta
fixtures but the organizers informed the GFA that it could not be
accommodated because of the problem of clearing the ground for
the Fruta matches.
"That might have been the cause for withdrawing the
Georgetown teams. The sponsors and club will have now to re-
view the tournament to see the best way forward. either to call off
the tournament or how to continue it."
GFA president Odinga Lumumba. yesterday, told Clihronicle
Sport that the withdrawal was temporary.
"There are some internal matters that have to be sorted
out."


Klassen? No problem ...


(From back page)
Clair said. Klassen is the
South African featherweight
champion and ranked 15th by
the IBF.
The thrice defeated fighter
was hauled in as St Clair's first
defence after negotiations with
former champion Cassius
Baloyi fell through. St Clair de-
feated Baloyi in July to snatch
the IBF and IBO titles, in the
process becoming the first
Guyanese to simultaneously
win two world titles.
According to St Clair, de-
feating Baloyi in his own
backyard (South Africa) was
tough and he expects another
tough encounter this time
around. -
The Guyanese added that
he would have loved to make his
first defence at home or in his
adopted country Austrailia.
"It is always tough going
into someone else's country to
fight them i .t-
.... utcsn t matter if
you are world champion or not.
I would have preferred to fight
right here in Australia or
Guyana, but I'm tied up with
these South African promoters
for my next two fights."
Klassen. who has only
fought once outside his home-
land, secured 10 knockouts in
18 victories, since turning pro-
fessional in 1999. Hec has drawn
two fights.
St Clair on the other
hand is 38 (17 KOs) 3-2. Since
moving to Australia live years
ago the talented 31-year-old
hias been 22-0.


"Certainly as captain you
dream of lifting the World Cup.
I've been on the job long enough
to have a burning ambition,"
Fleming said.


Stephen Fleming will
surpass Arjuna Rantunga's
captaincy record of 194
ODIs on Wednesday.
"I am enjoying my cap-
taincv now more than ever. It
has been a long time. I can look
over a lot of different games, a
lot of different captaincy styles
I have used.
"I can honestly say that I


am learning more now
within the side, developing
myself more. It's an exciting
prospect looking forward."
Ranatunga inspired dark
horses Sri Lanka to glory in the
1996 World Cup in the sub-con-
tinent with his innovative lead-
ership and his ability to bat uin-
der pressure.
Fleming said he would have
to do the same if New Zealand
were to succeed in the World
Cup in the Caribbean in March.
"To do that (win the World
Cup) I have got to play well. I just
have to do my job, that's getting
runs. If I do that, my captaincy is
better, my decision-making is bet-
ter and that younger players tend
to follow that lead."
Free-spirited New Zealand
are considered dangerous oppo-
sition because of the exciting
approach to the game. They
qualified for the semifinals in
four World Cups, the last being
in 1999 in England.

MiUMBAI, India, (CMC) -
3ria" Lara believes the
week long break between
West Indies' first and second
matches will serve them well
for the remainder of the ICC
Champions Trophy.
The West Indies captain is
recovering well from treatment,
after he suffered lower back
spasms when batting against
Australia and did not take the
field, and fellow left-hander
Shivnarine Chanderpaul is also
regaining his strength, after he
missed the game because of se-
vere dehydration caused by
food poisoning.
"Before the match against
Australia, I was complaining
about the extended length of
time between our first and sec-
ond games, but it now looks like
it will work really well for us,"
said Lara in his first comments
following his side's stunning
10-run win over Australia last
Wednesday.
"With Shiv now recover-
ing from his food poisoning,
and me with my back spasms,
the time that we have off will
allow us to have 14 fit guys
going into the second game,
and Corey (Collymore) will
be back, so it's good."
Collymore left the squad
earlier this week to be with his
wife Dionne for the birth of
their first child in London.

excellent. Unfortunately, I
couldn't make it out, but we
knew we had a total we could
defend which was very impor-
tant.
The guys went out and did
a great job.


Lara acknowledged that the
spirit in the team was upbeat,
and they were looking forward
to the remainder of the compe-
tition.
"Winning to us was very
important, and runs on the
board on a pitch which deterio-
rates always gives the team bat-
ting second something more to
think about and it was a vital
toss to win," he said.
"We tried as much as pos-
sible to spread out the expe-
rienced players because of
the fact Shiv wasn't playing.
Wavell (Hinds) accepted to go
up front which was good. I had
to drop back to number six,
and (Ramnaresh) Sarwan
went to number four.
"We had a bit of inexperi-
ence at three and five in terms
of (Dwayne) Smith and
(Runako) Morton, but I thought
the guys played well."
Lara believed tne victory
was "really something special"
and his teammates were gaining
a greater appreciation for the in-
tricacies of limited-overs
internationals.
"The most important thing
was the partnerships that were
put together, no matter how
small they were," he said. "We
had one main partnership, but
everyone contributed which was
great.

"1 didn't know, I thought

"Jerome didn't even know
it. After the game, 1 asked him,

Federer to meet


Gonzalez in Madrid


Masters final
By Simon Baskett

MADRID, Spain (Reuters) World number one Roger
Federer will meet Chile's Fernando Gonzalez in the fi-
nal of the Madrid Masters after the two players notched
up emphatic victories in their respective matches yester-
day.
The 25-year-old Federer overwhelmed Argentine David
Nalbandian 6-4, 6-0 with his customary brand of preci-
sion tennis to reach his 14th final of the year and notch
up his seventh win in the last eight meetings between the
two players.
Tenth seed Gonzalez reached his first Masters Series
final when he romped to a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Tomas
Berdych who was unable to cope with the hostile home
crowd.
The Czech number one folded under the pressure, while
Gonzalez gave
him no respite
as he pounded
him with his
pin-point serve
and wrapped up
victory in 52
minutes.
"I've never
seen anything
like it, it's like
a (bad) dream.
It's notes a tennis
cr o w d "
Berdych said.
The only
tournament this
year in which
Federer has
failed to make
the final was the
Masters Series
event in Cincinnati in August when he lost to British number
one Andy Murray in the second round.
"I was really pleased with the way I played," the Swiss
told a news conference. "I was aggressive and he was the best
returned I played all week.

GREATFEELING
"The second set was phenomenal especially at the end when
I started to hit freely and take my chances. It's a great feeling.
There were more and more good shots coming from my end
and it was great fun for me.
"It was nice to make the fans feel as though they are living
through something special.
World number four Nalbandian looked jaded after two tough
three-set matches on his way to the semi-finals and was never
able to match the top seed who wrapped up victory in under
an hour to take his winning streak to 18 matches.
Federer, bidding for a 10th title of the season, issued
an early statement of intent by winning the opening ser-
vice game to love, while Nalbandian looked sluggish after
his tough path to the semi-finals and lost his serve in the
fourth.
In the second set the Swiss refused to let Nalbandian
off the hook and rattled through the games in just 21 min-
utes to chalk up one of his most emphatic victories over
t,, nlaver who beat him in the final of last 'ear's Mas-
ters Cup.

Sir lyd.hoIs a

Guaneshert
-SotMinite


SIR Clyde Leopold Walcott's
contribution to the develop-
ment of cricket in the Carib-
bean Region is indeed out-
standing but many are un-
aware of his contribution to
cricket in Guyana, according
Minister of Culture, Youth
and Sports Dr Frank An-


thony.
In remembering Sir Clyde.
who died on August 26 last, the
Minister said. "'Sir Clyde, a
Barbadian by birth, should hold
a special place in the hearts of
Guyanese as he played first
class cricket for British Guyana
for a decade, from 1954 to
1964. He was first appointed as
a cricket organiser on the sugar


estates and helped to mould
several of our most talented
sons.
In 1955 two players from
Port Mourant. Rohan Kanhai
and Basil Butcher were selected
to play for British Guiana
against Australia. By the follow-
ing year there were five players
from the Berbice sugar estates -
(Kanhai, Butcher. Joe Solonion.
Sonny Baiijnauth and Ivan
Madray) representing British
Guiana in a Quadrangular Tour-
natnent.
Walcott captained that
team. Several of those
abovementioned Guyanese
cricketers went on to repre-
sent the West Indies and later
on Roy Fredericks
(Blairmont) and Alvin
Kallicharran (Port Maurant)
emerged as giants in the
game.
It was because of Sir
Clyde's diligence, hard work
and commitment that several of
our players were able to break
on to the international stage.
His contribution to the devel-
opment of cricket in Guyana Cs-
pecially in the region of Berhice
is a lasting legacy and Guyana,
as a nation, will be eternally in-
debted to him.
Cricket has many simi-
larities with life. You can win
or lose depending on how you
play. Sir Clyde certainly
played well on and off the
field.

Shoaib, Asif appear


before drugs tribunal

... second hearing set for October 26


By Waheed Khan

KARACHI, Pakistan
(Reuters) Pakistan fast
bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and
Mohammad Asif appeared be-
fore a tribunal yesterday
which will recommend if they
are to be penalised for test-
ing positive for the banned
steroid nandrolone.
The tribunal, including
former Test captain Intikhab
Alam and barrister Shahid
Hamid. will report its findings
in two weeks' time to the Paki-
stan Cricket Board (PCB).
Shoaib and Asif were re-
called from the Champions Tro-
phy in India on Monday after
they tested positive in the in-
ternal dope tests carried out by
the PCB before the tournament.
Under the International
Cricket Council (ICC) anti-dop-
ing regulations if a player tests
positive in a tournament he
faces an immediate ban of two
years for a first violation.
"The tribunal met for


some three hours and both of
them were questioned for an
hour after which they left and
the members carried on their
deliberations," a board
spokesman told Reuters.


SHOAIB AKHTAR

"The tribunal is expected to
meet again on tlihe 26h." lihe
added.
l)r Nasim Ashraf. the P'CB
chairman. told reporters that tlhe
board would iipleiiienC the ree-
onuiiendalions of lite tribuniil
and would make lie louticolme


public.
"We will not be taking any
popular decision under pressure
from anyone. We will take a cor-
rect decision. The World Cup is
important for us but more im-
portant is the image of the coun-
try. We will act impartially and
fairly," Ashraf said.

FAIR CHANCE
He, however. made it clear
that the players would be given
a fair chance to defend them-
selves.
"A thorough independent
investigation is being carried
ouill. They have been niccused ol
testing positive but we don't
knoW if thev took it i inadvel-
enllly or inlciilioiially.
The P'CB chief said the
board hlad fulfilled its first rc-
sponsihility h\ i tlnediic tell\
calling bac (l tie plt\ers and u
imakling public thie A simpl le-
portis.
"The players can nowl
ring anyone before the Iri-
hunal in definee," lie said.


Duining the speech, Gordon
admitted that his ime,,thod were
different and apologised if lie
offended anyone over the last
year.
"1 ask such persons to be-
lieve that this has not been in-


KEN GORDON
tentional. but onl0 in the pur-
suit of a wider objective." he
said.
Gordon indicated it was a
little more than one year ago
when lie accepted the invitation
to become president of the
WICB.
"These 12 months have
been a highly instructive expe-
rience." he said.
"If not exactly enjoyable. 1
am pleased to sa\ it has been a
rewarding experience, unfortu-
natelv not financially. but can-
didly in a much deeper sense.
"You have provided me
with the opportunity to serve
the cause of West


Indies cricket and the
people of the Caribbean and
both are very dear to me."
Gordon concluded by issu-
ing a call for all cricket fans to
mobilise support behind the
West Indies team to win the
2007 ICC World Cup to be
staged in the Caribbean.
"When 12 months ago, we
issued that call, many were de-
risive: today that dream is not


as far-fetched as it once ap-
peared." he said.
"The signs of change are now
around us. We must seize the mo-
ment to bury the past, ignite the
future and go forward with a col-
lective agenda to rebuild that which
we lost along the way.
"Our team is speaking to
us. Let us close ranks behind
them and give West Indies
cricket the support it needs".

McKend football


semi-finals set


for today

THE semifinals of the Winston McKend Memorial foot-
ball competition will be staged tonight at the Den Amstel
Community Centre ground. West Coast Demerara.
Unbeaten Group A winners Pouderoyen will meet Group
B runners-up Crane in the first match from 18:00 h then Group
B winners Beavers will come up against Group A runners-up
Den Amstel from 20:00 h.
Pouderoyen registered the maximum points in the
group stage, gaining the final set by a walk-over from
Stewartville. last week Sunday, at the Uitvlugt Commu-
nity Centre ground.
In the final match of Group B in the same double-header,
Uilvlugt beat Young Achievers 2-0. with a double goal by
Sherwavne Lanferman the first coming in the 77th minute and
the other in the 87th minute.
That victory, however, did not have any bearing on group
top places, for which Beavers and Crane tied with two wins
and a loss. Beavers won the group with a superior goal dif-

GCC, Scotsburg United battle


in first match


By Vemen Walter

FOR a team reaching a na-
tional first division semi-fi-
nal while playing in their de-
but season, it's more than an
achievement and for sure will
be very pumped up, no mat-
ter who their opponents may
be or how formidable they
are.
That is exactly the situation
with the little-known Scotsburg
United team from the Upper
Corentyne when they take on
the much-touted Georgetown
Cricket Club (GCC) in the first
national semi-final of the 2006
Baron Foods 50 overs knockout
cricket tournament toda., at the
Georgetown Cricket Club


ground Bourda.
Having created a stir with
victories oser Port Mourant,
Bermine and W4est Berbice be-
fore scrambling to Berbice chanm-
pions Albion Community Cen-
tre in dhe Berbice Zone final,
Scotsburg know that they will
have their work cut out as was
the scenario against Albion, but
appearing in such a big game for
the first time will certainly pro-
vide the extra impetus as they
seek to produce an upset win.
Led by veteran James
Hart. the Berbice runners-up
possess a good all-round
team. ideally suited for this
version of the game and play-
ing on the small: Bourda
ground. could ver well work


in their favour.

ing to fill the stadium (with
people) to test our security and
crowd control plans as well.
"This will be our dress re-
hearsaL It will offer the per-
fect opportunity to replicate a
match-day scenario."
Kensington Oval, which is
situated in the heart of the Bar-
bados capital of Bridgetown, is
being re-developed at a cost of
USS67.5 million. The seating
capacity will be doubled to ac-
commodate close to 30 000

struction work is ahead of


schedule and the major portion
of the buildings will be com-
pleted by December.
After this. they will
spend six\ weeks working on
a temporary stand to house
16 000 fans.
"We have a major job at
hand." he said. "Already four of
the seven matches at
Kensington are sold out. so we
must ensure we are 'ganie' when
the event gets here."
The ground will stage six
Super Eight (second round)
matches on April 11. 13. 15.

ODINGA LUMUMBA


By Isaiah Chappelle


sk


THE now popular Fruta Foot-
ball Festival is at the cross-
roads as the referees and city
football bodies dealt the tour-
ary nament blows, and only one
match was played as the
quarterfinals opened Friday
night at the Tucville ground.
Secretary of Fruta Conquer-
ors, Marion Cole, yesterday.
told Chronicle Sport that refer-
ees withdrew their service and
city teams were ordered not to
participate further in the tour-
nament sponsored by
Trinidadian firm Guyana Bever-
ages Inc.
Cole said that on the morn-
ing of the fixture, an official of
the Guyana Football Referees
-. Council (GFRC) called him to
bring forward the game to 18:00
A h and 20:00 h from the 19:30 h
and 21:30 h start.
The club secretary indicated
it would not be possible because
the teams were issued with fix-
tures and they would not have
the required period of notice for
such a change.
Cole said that if the referees
had a problem with the time, the


organizers should have been in-
formed much earlier.
"In the weeks before, the
times were the same. We,
however, agreed that at least
one match would be done."
Cole said spectators were
already admitted into the
ground, and to appease the situ-
ation, the teams in the first
match. Pouderoyen of West
Demerara and Timehri Panthers
agreed to play under the whistle
of National coach Kurt Cadogan.
The match ended in a 1-1 draw
and both teams agreed to a re-
play.
The club secretary dis-
closed that the GFRC had al-
ready been paid an advance of
$42 500, half the amount the
sponsors agreed to pay for their
services. The referees had asked
for a $103 000-package, and re-
duced it to $95 000.
GFRC secretary, yester-
day, told Chronicle Sport that
the referees accommodated
the organizers when the fix-
tures had to be adjusted to
three matches, but in the
quarterfinals, two matches

Are you a blamer,
placator, leveller,
distracter or cool cookie?
Read and decide.

THE PLACATOR

Who are you and why?
SOMETIMES we all feel a bit scared by life. As a
placatory, your coping strategy is to put other people first.
Somewhere along the line, you've learned that to agree rather
than disagree, to back down rather than win is the way to lead
your life. When things get tough, you back down.
The positive:
You're absolutely great with people. Everyone likes you
and many people love you. You're never a problem, never a
challenge and as a peacemaker, you're the best.
The negative:
You can end up feeling resentful because you never get
enough time, space or attention for yourself. You often put
yourself down in order to boost people up and that can mean
you get a little exploited.

to stand up for yourself. Read 'How to Say No by Corinne
Sweet' (Hodder & Stoughton). An assertive training course may
help you learn to cope with conflict and be more confident.


THE BLAMER

Who are you and why?
Life can be tough. And as a blamer, you've learned to bite
back to strike out before anything emotionally affects you.
Don't feel bad it's a very effective coping strategy in a threat-
ening world.
The positives:
You never take any flack. You're great in conflict situations
especially where there's a need for strong leadership or cham-
pion for a cause. Your energy carries you through where other
people may fear to tread.
The negatives:
Your upfront attitude can make people wary of you.
The blamer at work:
You can handle stress, like no one else. You thrive in de-
manding jobs and are great on the front line. The risk is that
you may burn out or alienate colleagues with your attitude.
The blamer in love:
You never make a dull partner. If you don't watch out, you
could end up lonely. You must work at letting down your bar-

riers to create intimacy.
Your love match:
Pair you with a placator and you may feel much less threat-
ened and so be able to enjoy the relationship, while a leveller
may help you to relax and trust enough to truly love.
What should you do?
You need to face up to your tendency to conflict and blame.
Read 'Stop Arguing, Start Talking' by Susan Quilliam, (Vermil-
ion, A6.99) or consider taking an anger management course in
order to stay calm and approachable.


THE LEVELLER

Who are you and why?
As a leveller, you've got your life together. While other per-
sonalities major too much on thinking or feeling, you are in per-
fect balance. You respond to situations with clear-sightedness,
taking your cue from your feelings, but using your mind to help
you make decisions and action plans.
The positives:
You're very together. You really take life by the scruff of
the neck and do what you want with it. You make and achieve
your goals because you have all the bits of the lifestyle jigsaw.
The negatives:
There aren't many other people like you. You might some-
times feel you're the only sorted person in the world!
The leveller at work:
You are a good colleague and team member able to support
but also keep people on task. You're particularly good at man-
agement roles where the need is to balance out different sets of
needs without getting swamped by your feelings.
The leveller in love:
You are a great partner because you rarely get hooked into
the sort of destructive patterns that many of the other person-
ality types do.
Your love match is:
Your ideal pairing is with a leveller and you'll both live hap-
pily ever after. With any of the other personality types you
risk doing all the giving, simply because you are more together
than they are.
What should you do?
Carry on doing what you're doing and make sure that your
friends, relatives, colleagues and partners are duly grateful for
your having you around.

The DISTRACTER

Who are you and why?
When life gets awkward, a distracter simply flutters away.
When life gets tough. you tend to either ignore the problems or
distract yourself and move onto something new. And when
you're in trouble, you are very good at avoiding the blame by
distracting people from the problem.
The positives:
You have such fun. You love partying and indulging your-
self and if you hit a problem, you just swan breeze o\er it.
You tend to have lots of friends and live in a great social whirl.
The negatives:
Underneath the fuin-lo ing party girl is someone a lot more
anxious. You don't like taking on responsibility. or facing up to
Vour mistakes and if you have to do that. it hurts.
The distracter at work:
'Your creatCive ninid and elnemyTg is a real asset at work. How-
ever. if something goes wrong, you often step out of the firing
line and Mth.i can get you disliked. You may even get a reputation
for not pulling your weight or for passing up responsibilities.
The distracter in love:
You jump in with abandon. But you may find it a bit more
difficult to really commit. to take on the challenge of loving
rather than being 'in loe'. page

NEW YORK (Reuters) Scientists have come up witl
way to determine whether someone is suffering from
ing disorder examining their hair.
A study released on Monday by researchers front
Brigham Young University found that examining carbon a
gen in the proteins of hair could reveal information about a
day-to-day nutrition.
Lead author Kent Hatch from the university's depart
integrative biology said clinicians could use this as a too
diagnose such disorders as anorexia or bulimia because mo
ferers lied or did not recognize their problems.
Hatch said current methods used to diagnose and mon

"What this might be useful for is helping present a case
to the patient that she really has a disorder that is affecting
her physiological health, because one of the hallmarks of these
illnesses is denial," Bunnell told Reuters.

The pursuit of genuine plea-
sure as culture involves the pur-
suit of education, literacy and
wisdom, by learning to appre-
ciate positive and uplifting
films, literature (novels and po-
etry), music, visual art, fashion,
and even healthy bodies enjoy-
ing sexual pleasures with contra-
ception. In Guyana, the rise of
poverty, crimes, AIDS, young
pregnancies, and racism are
inked to ignoring the pleasures
of literacy/education. And a des-
perate desire to want what the
world has to offer, and a false
appearance of wealth, without
thinking of the correct way to
pursue such goals. It is not re-
ally true pleasure that motivates
many young 'child-fathers' and
'child mothers' who are not ca-
pable or ready to provide for
their offspring in a LEGAL
manner, for whatever reasons.

Such parents may end up doing
illegalities to provide for their
families, and such children left
without material support, edu-
cation and literacy may grow up
hating society, but loving a life
of crime. Sociologists and law-
makers who look into the back-
ground of criminals usually find
such personal histories.
Many young Guyanese
who wish to appear as a 'big
man' or 'big woman' too early,
may possess profitable creative
talents that never develop or
progress pleasurably benefiting
themselves and others, because
they have taken on family re-
sponsibilities which stress or
divert their creative energies;
also without legal divorce pa-
pers they may find it difficult
to be rid of ex-partners who
keep intruding in their lives and
obstructing their freedom and
progress. On the other hand, in
Guyana, many girls/women are
slandered and condemned un-
fairly because they pursue a life
of pleasure, both personally and
socially. Many Oriental girls
and guys may be hindered or
prevented from sharing sexual
and social freedom with others
of a different race, due to insu-
lar ideas. Many such girls may
risk being branded as 'whores'
etc.. because they frequent such
nightclubs, cafes, cultural
events, where they can meet,
socialize and sleep with who-
ever they choose, and would not
gel a chance to meet otherwise.
A culture of pleasure is
closely linked to enjoying
literacy, education, and art
forms like novels, poetry,
films, music, painting and
sculpture, theatre, fashion,
photography. Only humans,
however, enjoy sexual images
of themselves, especially
displaying their natural
bodies and expressing sexual
pleasure. This is called
eroticism, and only humans
possess it. Animals care
nothing for such images. as
the great French novelist
Alain Robbe-Grillet pointed
out in his profound essay "For

Death


of


Marriage


On Friday I will be moving
out of my large four-bed-
room, two-bath, two-car-ga-
rage home. I will not see my
kids every day, and I believe
this is the end of my 12 year
marriage. I keep hoping the
move will restart our rela-
tionship.
The cause of the move is
my wife's rediscovery of my
cheating. The first time hap-
pened after I infected her with
trichomoniasis. We both cried
and were hurt. She promised to
forgive me, and I promised never
to cheat again. I also agreed not
to look at online pornography. I
understood looking at porn or
cheating again would mean the
end of the marriage.
I failed. It wasn't because I
didn't love her. I think it was an
addiction to sex and taking my
wife for granted. My viewing of
Internet porn started a month
after my wife agreed to make
the marriage work, and this led
me on a downward spiral.
I can't explain it, but going
back to the prostitute again was
a form of closure for me. I
needed to dominate the woman
who started everything to
unravel. The act was pleasur-
able, and she was more ani-


mated than miy wife. I left feel-
ing vindicated and that I never
had to return.
My movements became
more secretive. Last Tuesday I
looked at Internet porn at work,
wrote down numbers of some
ladies, and planned to call and
get pricing. I kept telling myself'
I just wanted to hear their
voices, but I was collecting
them. I put the paper in my
shirt pocket to call them on the
counmute home.
I was going to dispose of
the paper before I got home.
and none would be the wiser.
Well, I forgot and my wife dis-
covered the paper. She told me
to move out by Friday. I didn't
argue. I started packing and sent
a quick e-mail to the pastor who
counsels us.
My fear is there will be no
way to make up with my
wife. I continue to ask for an-
other chance, but her heart is
cold to me. She says I can come
over for dinner and have the kids
stay at my new place, but I
don't know how to win her
back.
TIM
Tim, some things, like


electricity, are hard to
understand. Even though
we use electricity every
day, most of us cannot say
what it is. Nonetheless, it
follows basic laws, and if
we violate its laws. elec-
tricity can kill us. In the
same way, there are basic
behavioral laws, and if we
fail to follow them. they
will kill a relationship.
No one would suggest you
get to live in a house you can-
not pay for, receive a paycheck
you didn't work for, or get a
perfect score on a test youl
didn't study for. Wh\ do ,ou
think you gel to keep the wife
you were unfaithful to? What
has happened follows behav-
ioral laws which are almost as
predictable as the laws of elec-
tricity.
You brought home a sexu-
ally transmitted disease, but
you could just as easily have
created a half-brother or halt-
sister for your children. You got
to experience adultery and mo-
ments of pleasure, and now you
get to experience separation, di-
vorce, and perhaps, making
payments on a house vou don't
get to live in.
Everything that happened


is based on \x hal you decided
to do, but you can't say that
about your wife. You will
end up divorced because of
what you did. but she will
end up divorced because of
whllat soliehod\ did to her.
She was in a real marriage, the
marriage of "\\e." You were
in a false marriage, the mar-
riage ol "l."
An ancient Chinese
maxim say s, if you are
out for vengeance. dig
two graves. The same
might be said of your in-
fidelity. Your infidelity
dug one grave for you
and another for her.

MOST people should have at least heard of a substance
called fluoride. Toothpaste manufacturers prominently
include the effects of fluoride on the teeth in their
advertisements. But while fluoride contained in
common toothpastes have some cavity prevention
characteristics, there have been recent advances in this
respect which prove to be more efficient.
Fluoride has primarily been utilised as an anti caries
agent. Fluoridated toothpastes are probably the most
commonly used method of caries prevention and have been
cited as one of the central factors associated with worldwide
decrease in caries prevalence. The most commonly used
fluoride compounds are sodium monofluorophosphate
(MFP). We who work in the Dental Health Services of the
Ministry of Health utilise fluoridated mouth rinse in our
school programme.
Fluoride combines with a mineral compound on the
surface of the teeth to form fluoropatite which is extremely
resistant to the corrosive action of the acids produced in
dental plaque. The fluoride now being used primarily reduces
the solubility of the enamel. But this is clearly not enough
to ensure adequate oral health.
Extensive research has demonstrated that a new
compound known as amine fluoride combined with stannous
fluoride is superior to compounds in most toothpaste. It
was shown that stannous fluoride acts as an antimicrobial
agent which not only slows down the process of tooth
decay but also possesses an anti plaque, contributing to
prevention of gingivitis. In effTect, here is a substance which
promotes and maintains the integrity of the gums apart from
the teeth.
When the experiment was conducted, the objectives
included studying the effectiveness of the new
substance on 300 15-year-old school children. No pre
study cleaning were given, no oral hygiene instruction
was offered and no close supervision was followed
during the trial. The design was intended to represent


The Dentist Advises


conditions of the general public as far as possible. The
teenage population was chosen as these subjects are
known to often practice inadequate oral hygiene,
experience gingivitis, but rarely demonstrate symptoms
of periodontal (gum) disease.
Chlorhexidine mouthrinse has been recognized in the
literature as having optimal and effective effect on the
control of plaque, gingivitis and periodontal disease.
However, as a result of certain side effects, including severe
staining, taste impainnent and strong anti bacterial virulence.
chlorhexidine is usually contraindicated for prolonged daily
usage.
Mouth rinses containing the new compound have been
tested in numerous studies, including among special care
patients, and it has been demonstrated that their
effectiveness has been similar to that of chlorhexidine,
without most of the side elTects and significantly less
staining.
In contrast to mouth rinses, clinical studies observing
the amine-stannous fluoride compound have observed no
staining problems. In addition, it is chemically stable to room
temperature even after being stored for two years.
Teenage participants at baseline did not present
severe gingival pathology but a general improvement
in gingival health was revealed over the interventional
period. This meant that it was the first time that any
toothpaste was proven to actually cure any oral disease.
The significance of this discovery represents the
beginning of a new and exciting era for dental public
health and we who work in this field are striving to
keep up.


WHO ARE YOU?
From page II
Your love match is:
Pair you with any one of the personality types and you'll shrug off
the difficulties. But pair you with a leveller, and he'll support and
help you to love in a mature way.
What should you do?
You need to learn to cope with the rough times and either take criti-
cism on the chin or stand up for yourself. Read 'Confidence Works'
by Gladeana McMahon, (Sheldon Press) or take a confidence-build-
ing course to help you face life and learn to deal with its challenges.


THE COOL COOKIE

Who are you and why?
Cool cookie scores highly when faced with life challenges. She thinks
rather than feels. You're great in an emergency, superb at finding
practical and logical solutions, but the problem is, you may find it
difficult to feel much and you tend to miss out on rich emotion.
The positives:
You get things done. You stay rational and operational even under
stress and you sail through life's crises, such as divorce or job loss.
without seeming to break stride.
The negatives:
You can tend to live too much in your head and deny the emotions
that you do feel because they're too uncomfortable. And if the stress
is too much. then you may go into overload, and just get paralysed.
The cool cookie in work:
You get a job done quickly, efficiently and always to deadline. You
are a reliable worker and will rise to a challenge. You take tricky
clients and stroppy bosses in your stride. Watch out though, you
may be unaware of the social and emotional side of the game and
often can't cope with office politics or group dynamics.
The cool cookie in love:
You are good at making the right choice of partner, but can fall short
on the romance and emotional intensity. You may find it difficult to
fall in love and stay in love. simply because being emotional does not
come naturally to you. You may tend to be unsympathetic to a
partner's emotional problems.
Your love match is:
Paired with any of the other personality types, your unemotional
attitude will balance out their more emotional personality although
their emotional intensity leaves you feeling uncomfortable. The part-
ner who'll cope best with that. and who will help you contact your
emotions, will be a leveller.
What should you do?
You will be happier and more fulfilled if you start getting in touch with
your emotions. Read 'Feelings Exploring Your Inner Emotions' by
Dr Brian Roet. (Piatkus) or take a personal development course to
help you get in tune with the feeling side of your personality.

TOWARDS A


CULTURE


mmm


From page IV
eroticism is human.' To rape, to force oneself sexually on others, is to behave like an animal,
but to caress, to mutually accept kisses, intercourse, is to make love. To enjoy sharing the
most intimate beauty of one's body, to enjoy seeing such images, to relieve one's sexual desires
and animalistic urges by masturbation, privately, is erotic and human.
Since very ancient times, various artists who created the tradition of a culture of pleasure under-
stood that sex was not only for procreation, but for erotic pleasure and satisfaction. When this is
denied, society may become self-destructive by humans made without love, filled with anger, and mental
abnormalities, like a people kept in bondage by a repressive government. In Europe, North America.
and Brazil, many women who make erotic photos. films, art, are also very literate, educated, actresses,
models, even civil servants and other professionals. Not long ago. one of Italy's most beautiful 'porno-
graphic' film stars was also a Member of Parliament for years. Instead of acting silly and snobbish,
such truly beautiful women share their human beauty with us via images, which even romantic couples
may enjoy, easing their fantasies, thus even avoiding real infidelities. No one stones, or abuses such
women when they are seen on the streets of Europe; instead, people ask for their autographs! IN any)
case, such so-called 'pornographic' imagery originated not in Europe or the USA, but in India. China,
Japan, Persia, where volumes of the most explicit erotic prints, paintings and sculptures were created
since antiquity for the purpose of an erotic culture of pleasure, not only for procreative instruction.
Today, explicit erotic comic-book novels are popular in Japan, where citizens ease their tensions with
a laugh at their grossly exaggerated erotic scene while on their way to work by subway, bus. etc. The
first erotic novels were written by Chinese/Japanese women-courtesans, the first modern poetry origi-
nating in China almost 2000 years ago. is filled with women of pleasure, wine drinking, and wisdom.
India gave us since antiquity, two detailed manuals of erotic love: 'The Performed Garden' and the
'Kama Sutra'. Not to mention the numerous erotic sculptures carved on Hindu temples at Konarak,
etc. Incidentally, India's brilliant Arts would decline after it became a British colony, since the sexually
neurotic Anglo culture preferred Home-eroticism and discouraged male-female Indo erotics.
The culture of pleasure remains mainly heterosexual, since such erotics also fertilises the
human race, whereas homosexuality and lesbianism, popular in ancient Greece, seems to
emerge more from psychological dependencies, family structures, Oedipus complex, and bio-
logical differences. The culture of pleasure should not be confused with usurped terms like
'gay' culture, which propagates itself increasingly in the Arts, where heterosexual topics are
not discouraged than before in Anglo 'gay' cities in Canada and England, apparently. The cul-
ture of pleasure is an ancient, solid, humanitarian tradition of social benefits: the ancient
Chinese sent women to their foes and stopped wars, whereas the Victorian English explorers
removed with hammer and chisel the erect penises they found on Egyptian sculptures. The
culture of pleasure encourages us to love literacy, art, to dress well, smell well, enjoy our
minds and bodies. No hate.

night, and creating quiet
bedtime rituals that children
enjoy.
Across the studies the
panel reviewed, more than 80
per cent of children who
received sleep training
showed significant
improvements in their
bedtime behaviour, according
to findings published in the
journal Sleep.
"We know that sleep
training works," said the
study's lead author, Dr. Jodi A.
Mindell of St. Joseph's
University in Philadelphia.
And parents should know
there are plenty of resources
out there to help them, she told
Reuters Health.
With young children.
"bedtime refusal" is often the
issue: they may cry, cling to
their parents or "stall" by
repeatedly asking for food, a
drink or a story. With babies, it's
frequent nighttime wakings that
last past the first few months


U


of life.
But the exact definition of
a "problem" behaviour is
personal, Mindell said. Parents
have to decide if their children's
bedtime habits are affecting
daytime behaviour making
them irritable or inattentive, for
instance or affecting the rest
of the family.
Then they can find a form
of sleep training that suits them.
In their review, Mindell
and her colleagues found that
a technique called
"extinction" had particularly
strong evidence to back it up.
In its most stringent form,
extinction has parents putting
their children to bed at a
particular time each night,
then ignoring their crying
and tantrums until a set time
in the morning.
A variant of this is the
"controlled crying" technique
popularised by Dr. Richard
Ferber, where parents gradually

before checking in on them.
When they do check in, the visit
should be uneventful no lights,
no playing.
But an important finding
from the review, Mindell said,
was that preventive measures -
educating new parents on how
to instill good bedtime were
highly effective.
"You really can prevent
these problems from
happening," she said.
She suggested that
expectant parents ask their
doctor about ways to form
healthy sleep habits early on.
There are also many books
and other resources on the
subject.
A key first step, Mindell
said, is that parents let go of
the idea that they are
"selfish" for wanting
bedtime to go smoothly; their
children may benefit even
more than they do from a
good night's sleep.

Edward






Jenkins

by Petamber Persaud
WITH the publication in 1877 of 'LUTCHMEE AND
DILLOO', a novel by Edward Jenkins, a number of signifi-
cant literary landmarks were set. Chief among those land-
marks was the fact that for the first time in English litera-
ture, 'coolies' were made a subject for fiction. Jenkins, in
the preface, admitted "the field is a new one for fiction,
but human nature still bears out the wisdom of the poet
who declared that it does not change with clime."
Some sixty years would elapse before a novel of similar fea-
ture was published. That novel, 'THOSE THAT BE IN BOND-
AGE' by A. R. F Webber, a Caribbean-born writer, was pub-
lished in 1917. Another quarter of a century would go by before
a Guyanese writer got into the act via 'CORENTYNE THUN-
DER' by Edgar Mittelholzer, 1941. In 1960, a Guyanese writer
of Indian ancestry, Peter Kempadoo, added to this vein of lit-
erature with the publication of 'GUIANA BOY'.
Furthermore, the writing and intent of Jenkins was described
as a "marriage between the modes of literature and reportage...a
writer inhabiting the important no-man's-land between fiction


and documentary writing." That was saying a lot at a time when
the novel was still novel.
A proud distinction in Guyanese Literature is that
'LUTCHMEE AND DILLOO' was the first book of fiction on
Guyana, the first time Indians in British Guiana were subject
matter for fiction and for the first time Indians in the Caribbean
were featured in fiction.
That novel came out of the author's need to make a cer-
tain research paper more accessible to grass root reader-
ship. That paper was labelled, 'THE COOLIE, HIS RIGHTS
AND WRONGS', a monumental work that despite the in-
clusion of two woodcuts and a groundbreaking literary style
did not convince Jenkins that his message got through to
the lay reader.
John Edward Jenkins was born in 1838 in Bangalore, India,
the same year that the first batch of Indians was shipped from
India to the British Guiana as indentured labourers. He was the
son of a Wesleyan Missionary.
From India. the family migrated to Canada where Edward
Jenkins was educated, first at Montreal High School and then at
McGill University.
During the 1860s, Jenkins moved to Britain where he later
qualified as a barrister in 1864.
With a strong background as a social reformer, he soon be-
came involved in a pressure group called the National Associa-
tion for the Promotion of Social Science. It was here his concern
for the plight of the common people was made public when in
1866 he presented a paper to the association on the legal aspect
of sanitary reform.
In 1870, Jenkins published his first novel, 'GINX'S BABY,
HIS BIRTH AND OTHER MISFORTUNES', which became a
bestseller, running into thirty six editions by 1876. The success
of the book made Jenkins a controversial figure overnight be-
cause it was "a satire on sectarian religious education". The book
was said to have influenced the most important phase of social
legislation at the time, the Education Act of 1870.
The year 1870 was when Jenkins set off for British Guiana
"to investigate the coolie condition" acting on behalf of the Anti-
Slavery Society and the Aborigines Protection Society. That ac-


tion stemmed from the establish- E
ment of the Royal Commission
of Enquiry investigating the Wil-
liam Des Voeux's report which
was a complaint about the aw-
ful indenture system, a new .
system of slavery by another _
name.
That visit to British Guiana produced three publications
namely, 'NOTES OF A JOURNEY THROUGH BRITISH
GUIANA', 1871, 'THE COOLIE, HIS RIGHTS AND
WRONGS' 1872 and 'LUTCHMIE AND DILLOO' 1877.
Jenkins was a fortunate writer for at that time he belonged
to "a group of socially committed authors, under the publishing
house of Strahan and Company". Alexander Strahan's aim was
supplying literature of "the wisest instructions in the pleasantest
manner... in such a form that it will find its way to tens of thou-
sands of British homes..."
In 1882, Jenkins published his second novel, 'LITTLE
HODGE', about the horrible lot of agriculture workers in Brit-
ain.
'LUTCHMEE AND DILLOO', according to its blurb, "be-
gun in India, Dilloo and Hunoomaun's rivalry over Dilloo's
wife, Lutchmee, is continued on a sugar estate in Guyana,
where it leads to the planning of an armed rebellion among
the indentured labourers and a tragic denouement". It was
recently republished by Macmillan Caribbean in a series
of reprints of the early literature of the Anglophone Carib-
bean.

QUESTION
How do I deal with employees who are not registered? Some of .:
these persons worked before and were never registered. Must I "o
pay contributions even though they do not have NIS numbers? c
Who is responsible for them not being registered? *
ANSWER 01
As the current employer, you are responsible for any registration
and payment of contribution for the period they are in your employ.
Whilst essentially they need NIS numbers to ensure their contributions =
are posted against their records, the absence of an NIS number will Li
not be accepted as reason for not paying contributions. You must
register these persons immediately.
My advise is to register persons as soon as they are employed so )
as to minimize problems which can lead to your prosecution. In the 'I
meanwhile, whilst waiting on the NIS card (if you need to) contribution 0,
payments can be made, using the correct names, as per birth certificate, ,
along with the date of birth.
Remember, it is a violation of the Law when an employer I
fails to register any employee, and fails to pay contributions as .
prescribed.


I N.B. Employers are reminded to ensure that correctNIS numbers are
-used when paying contributions. Incorrect'nunbers can affecttyour'
employees when it is time for Benefit.

LONDON (Reuters) The com-
plete evolutionary works of
Charles Darwin have gone
online, including the stolen note-
book he carried in his pocket
around the Galapagos Islands.
Tens of thousands of pages
of text and pictures and audio
files have been made available,
including some previously un-
published manuscripts and dia-
ries of the great British scientist.
Among the unique collection
is the notebook used during the
Beagle voyage which would later
forge his scientific arguments. It
was stolen in the 1980s. but
Darwin's great-great-grandson
hopes the publication online.
thanks to a transcription from a
microfilm copy made two de-
cades earlier, will persuade who-


ever has it to return it.
"It has huge importance for
the history of science," Randal
Keynes told the BBC.
"We very much hope that
now that it is known to have
been stolen and the pictures of
it are on the Web site and can
be seen by everyone and read,
when it next surfaces someone
will get in touch with English
Heritage, the owners, and enable
them to recover it and bring it
back to Darwin's home, where
it should be."
Other items in the free col-
lection of 50,000 pages and
40,000 images are the first edi-
tions of the Journal of Re-
searchers, written in 1839, The
Descent of Man. The Zoology
of the Voyage of HMS Beagle,


which includes his observations
during his five-year trip to the
Amazon. Patagonia and the Pa-
cific, and the first five editions
of the Origin of Species.
John van Wyhe. director of
the project run by Cambridge
University, said the collection is
so comprehensive it will help
dispel the "many misconcep-
tions and myths" about the
naturalist.
He told the BBC that noth-
ing can now come between the
man and his writings.
People can log on to the site
at darwin-online.org.uk.
Further writings will be
added during the next three
years to coincide with the
bicentenary of Darwin's
birth.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters)
Picasso's famed 'Dream'
painting turned into a night-
mare for Las Vegas casino
magnate Steve Wynn when
he accidentally gave the mul-
timillion dollar canvas an el-
bow.
Wynn had just finalised a
$139 million sale to another col-
lector of his painting, called 'Le
Reve' (The Dream). when he
poked a finger-sized hole in the
artwork while showing it to
friends at his Las Vegas office a
couple of weeks ago.


Director and screenwriter
Nora Ephron, who witnessed
and related the incident in her
blog on the Huffington Post
Web site
(wVww. hi u ffingt onpost.coim).
said Wynn had raised his hand
to show the group something
about Picasso's 1932 portrait of
his mistress Marie-Therese
Walter.
"At that moment. his el-
bow crashed backward right
through the canvas. There was
a terrible noise." Elhron wrote.
noting that Wynn has retinitis


pigmientosa, an eve disease that
damages peripheral \ision.
"Sniuaick in the middle ... \\as
a black hole the si/e of a silver
dollar. 'Oh s--.' lhe said. 'Look
what I've dLone. Thank good-
ness it was inm."
Wvnn s office on Tuesda\
confirmed the slory. a.n accouliil
of which also appeared in this
week's The New Yorker. Both
accounts said Wynn had decided
to release the buyer from the
sale agreement and to repair and
keep the painting himself.
Wynn, a millionaire ca-
sino developer and art collec-
tor, developed The Mirage
and Bellagio resorts in Las
Vegas in the 1990s. which
spearheaded a profusion of
luxury hotels and casinos on
the once-seedy Las Vegas
Strip.

World Food






Day 2006

Theme: 'Investing in

Agriculture for food security'.


Hello Readers,

Did you know that there is
an international observance
called 'World Food Day'
(WFD)? Well, on Monday Oc-
tober 16, Guyana joined with
the rest of the world in cel-
ebrating World Food Day
2006. Among other activities,
the Ministry of Agriculture
celebrated this event with an
exhibition and fair at the
Diamond Ground, East Bank
Demerara. The Food and Ag-
riculture Organisation
(FAO) of the United Nations
celebrates World Food Day
each year on October 16, the
day on which the
Organisation was founded in
1945. This week, we will look
at the origin of WFD, the sig-
nificance of this year's theme
and its relevance to Guyana.
Source: http://
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
World_Food_Day

WHERE DID
WFD COME
FROM?
World Food Day (WFD)
was established by FAO's
Member Countries at the
Organisation's Twentieth Gen-
eral Conference in November
1979. It has since been observed
every year iHi more than 150
countries, raising awareness of
the issues behind poverty and
hunger. Since 1981, World Food
Day has adopted a different


vestment will have to come
from the private sector, with
public investment playing a cru-
cial role, especially in view of
its facilitating and stimulating
effect on private investment. In
spite of the importance of agri-
culture as the driving force in the
economies of many developing
countries, this vital sector is fre-
quently starved of investment.
Agriculture may have be-
come a minor player in many
industrialized economies, but it
must play a starring role on the
world stage if we are to bring
down the curtain on hunger. Yet,
foreign aid for agriculture and
rural development has shown
marked declines over the past
20 years. An estimated 854 mil-
lion people around the world re-
main undernourished. Source:

WHAT'S
HAPPENING
WITH
AGRICULTURE
IN GUYANA?
Most of the agricultural ac-
tivities take place on the coast,
where the alluvial soil is rich
and fertile. The coast occupies
less than 10 per cent of the
countries total land area and is
home to 90 per cent of the
population.
Did you know that the ag-
riculture sector accounts for a


The Yard Fowl or 'Creole' Rooster


theme each year,, in order to
highlight areas needed for action,
and provide a common focus.'
This year it was celebrated un-
der the theme mentioned.

HOW DID THIS
THEME COME
ABOUT?
The theme for this year's
observances was chosen be-
cause the FAO has recognized
the importance of investing in
agriculture. The bulk of that in-


quarter of Guyana's gross do-
mestic' prodqctC? Consequently,
one-third of G6yanese workers
are involved in agriculture.
Guyana's two most important
export crops arc sugar and rice.
In addition, coconuts, coffee.
cocao. and other cash crops are
grown for domestic consumlp-
tion.
Livestock production is not
practiced on a very substantial
scale; most of the livestock pro-
duced is used to supply the lo-
cal market. Large areas of grass-
lands exist in the interior savan-
S.unaSof,Guyana for cattle ranch-


ing and some livestock produc-
tion. Here, farmers raise sub-
stantial numbers of castle, hogs,
sheep and chickens, whose
products are mainly used for
domestic purposes.
Fishing for various species
of aquatic life is another agricul-
tural activity which is common
in Guyana. Many persons may
have heard about the recent de-
velopments with aqua-culture
and fish farming. The sector
may reach a scale substantial
enough to supply the popula-
tion needs and for the export
market.

PROBLEMS
FACING THE
AGRICULTURE
INDUSTRY
Agriculture as a whole suf-
fers fr6m a number of weak-
nesses. Among the factors slow
down agricultural growth is;
weak support services, deterio-
ration of drainage and irrigation
facilities, high-cost farm-to-mar-
ket infrastructure, and insecure
land tenure.
Sugar constitutes Guyana's
single largest source of foreign
exchange, and employs more
workers than does any other
Guyanese industry. However,
the sugar industry faces major
challenges such as:
low world prices for sugar,
which are continuing to decline.
Factories need to be equipment
with efficient technologies to
lower the cost production. In
addition, we have to consider
the probability that preferential
quotas in the major European
markets will come to an end.
Without continued preferential
quotas, Guyana will experience
a greater challenge in ensuring
the sustainability of its sugar in-
dustry in an international com-
petitive marketplace.

THE WAY
FORWARD
In Guyana, we have
recognized that our agriculture
industry needs to be resusci-
tated and sustained. Among the
various recommendations:
We must expand ex-
isting export markets and break
into new ones in order to fuel
the future growth of our
economy.
During the present
downturn in the farm economy,
farmers must be provided with
the means to change and im-
prove their farming and market-
ing techniques.
. . In addition to its tra-
ditional cash crops of sugar and
rice. Guyana produces a wide
variety of fruits, vegetables and
other crops, which have been
sold almost exclusively to the
domestic market. Iariiners are
encouraIged to diversify into
new areas. such as apicultlure
(beekeeping).

tant areas to be emphasized

ARIES -- You're deep in the thick of a work situation, and while you are en-
joying this particular challenge, it might be causing you some stress. Today.
you should make sure this tension doesn't bleed over into the other areas of
your life give some attention to a friend who desperately needs your in-
sight. A few words of wisdom on your part will give them a sense of security.
You're paying attention to your career, but you should focus on the people
you love too.

TAURUS -- If you are pushing up against an obstacle today and nothing is
happening, pushing harder isn't the right tactic. Instead, stop trying to get
by it. Accept it and see what happens. Chances are, you won't mind working
your way around it. In fact, this could be just the grain of sand you need to
form your personal pearl. Pressure makes diamonds, and whatever is in your
way is only going to force you to come up with an even better way which
you are sure to do.

GEMINI -- There is a strong interconnectedness to all of the different ele-
ments of your life right now ... disparate people, places and things will sud-
denly take on a harmonious vibe, syncing up and creating the foundation for
something unique and quite beautiful. Now is the time to take your craziest
germ of an idea and show it to the world. You are well poised to gather up
many different types of admirers who think that your way of doing things is
pretty special.

CANCER -- If there has been a power struggle in your life, today is a good
time to grab the rope harder, lean in, and give it a good hard pull. Chances
are, everything will move to your side with a big kerplop! You have been un-
derestimating your strength, allowing other people to convince you that they
have the other hand. Today, you should remind yourself that the only person
in charge of where you go, what you do, and who you love is you.

LEO -- You can help other people without being too critical today, but you
will have to be honest about what you think. Right now, there is no point in
sharing your thoughts unless you share all of them: the good and the bad;l
the objective and the subjective; the helpful and the pointless. Being critical
is an art form, but it is one at which you excel. Due to your healthy balance
between diplomacy and compassion, you always know just what to say. Don't
worry.

VIRGO -- The normal routine of your day will be disrupted early on by some-
one who needs your help with something entertaining. Turns out, they will
end up giving you some help too, although you might not understand just
how to ask them for it yet. In a business negotiation, your creativity will en-
able you to get what you want without sacrificing any of your hard-earned
resources. If you make it clear that you are not willing to compromise, you
must stand behind that statement.

LIBRA -- Bring a troubled friend in on your newfound happiness today ...
they will appreciate the gesture, and they'll be more supportive than you think.
Reaching out to other people ensures that there will always be someone there
to reach out to you it's the reciprocity of friendship. Invite them to talk out
what they are going through, and halfway through the conversation you might
realise that they are helping you create new ideas without getting too deep
into your own head.

SCORPIO -- Today you should be able to sense a new beginning most
likely in your personal life, although you could see someone transitioning
from a professional role to a more personal one, which should definitely be
considered a new thing! If you wan to encourage this growth, be generous
with the positive feedback. Amp up your enthusiasm and toss it around liber-
ally. Make sure to be an active participant in life, not just a contented specta-
tor.

SAGITTARIUS -- Concise communication will be your best tactic today ... so
whenever you can, try to put things in a nice little nutshell. Zippy little emails,
quick instant messages and short little text messages will help you convey
the ideas you need to without getting caught up in the muddy, sticky details.
Other people will have a tendency to go off on some pretty wild tangents
today, and you just won't have time to humor them like you usually do.

CAPRICORN -- Something is preventing you from seeing that the pressing
problems are right in front of you is that your ego? Take off your rose-
coloured glasses and open your eyes to the light of reality. The good news is
that it is not nearly as harsh as you feared. Avoiding the issue is not going to
solve the issue it's only going to make the problem worse. You owe it to
yourself today to step up and do what needs to be done. Apologies won't be
necessary, but humility is.

AQUARIUS -- You have a bit too much on your plate right now ... so today,;
try to just let go of some of it. Part of the stress you are going through ,<' not'
all of it) is self-inflicted. If you can see things in a more carefree way. you will
start to feel more carefree overall. Your emotions might e clouded up. but
that is because you are distracted by worry. Lurn a\\i\ I'rom yVour personlla
worries by getting involved in positive. fun things \\ith friends.

PISCES -- There is good news todal regarding one of \our more particulara\
fuzzy frtustratiolns. Things are finally starting to come into focus ... so do \ our
sell a big favour and accelerate tlie I'orI'naion of tlus clear picture b\ siep
ping back and giving yourself some distance. You ma\ have the drive to tackle
it head on, and you probably have the energy to back it up: but right no'\
you need to study it from a distance before you can act on it effectively. i

Cocoa plantations in Guyana originated centuries ago but
production did not peak until the late 1950's. The industry
boomed as a result of the establishment of large-scale cocoa
plantations in Hosororo. Following the usual boom and bust
cycles, these plantations subsequently declined and it took a
visit of His Royal Highness's Prince Charles to Guyana in
June 2000 to jump-start the industry which had been
redundant for over thirty years. He convinced the President
of Guyana to re-developing the industry and rehabilitate the
existing old cocoa plantations.

Today, the organically certified beans are exported to the UK

Visitors arc taken on a guided tour of one of the plantations. The
tours include the chance to assist members of the Blue Flame
Women's Group in hand rolling cocoa sticks which are prepared
afterwards into a delicious energising drink What tastes good is also
good for you as a variety of scientific studies have established that
a cup of hot cocoa is twice as rich in antioxidants as a glass of red
wine, up to three times richer than a cup of green tea and up to
five times richer than black tea.
An exhilarating boat ride takes you up the Arouca and Barima
rivers to the AMCAR heart of palm factory at Drum Hill. A stop
along the way for a 'Survivor Challenge' type of swamp tour is a
must to get close up and personal with the Warrau heart of palm
harvesters who are perfectly adapted to this type of terrain. They
continue their centuries old tradition of living in stilted huts in the
swamps and can be credited for this construction style for which
Guyana an Amerindian word meaning "land of many waters" is well
known. They are some of the best fishermen and can also serve as
fishing guides to those who are interested in trying to catch a few
fish!
For those interested in alternative energy, a one-hour bus
ride to Wauna oil palm estate is an eye-opener. This estate
was started in the 70's with the goal of self-sufficiency and
early products such as 'Abby' (meaning 'our own') butter
were produced from the palm oil. Today, a quarter of a
century later a brand new initiative producing bio diesel from
the palm oil is showing promise and it is hoped that this
would meet the energy needs of the region.
We need to see agriculture as being more than just
traditional crops and Region One is an agro tourism
destination waiting to welcome you. The port of Morowhanna,
which can accommodate shipments to the Caribbean, once
operationalised can transform both the dreams of the farmers
as well as that of Guyana being 'The breadbasket of the
Caribbean' into a reality.

The Excerpt
On Memorial Day weekend, 1995, my world changed forever.
I was competing in an equestrian event in Virginia when my horse,
Buck, decided to put on the brakes just before the third jump.
When he stopped suddenly, momentum carried me over the top
of his head. My hands got entangled in the bridle, and I couldn't
get an arm free to break my fall. All six-feet-four-inches and 215
pounds of me landed headfirst. Within seconds I was paralysed
from the neck down and fighting for air like a drowning person.
I woke up five days later in the intensive-care unit at the Uni-
versity of Virginia hospital. Dr. John Jane, head of the neurosur-
gery at the hospital, said I had broken the top two cervical verte-
brae and that I was extremely lucky to have survived. He told my
wife, Dana, and me that I might never be able to breathe on my
own again. But my head was intact, and that my brain stem so
close to the site of the injury appeared unharmed.
Dr. Jane said that my skull would have to be reconnected to
my spinal column. He wasn't sure if the operation would be suc-
cessful, or even if I could survive.
Suddenly it dawned on me that I was going to be a huge burden
to everybody, that I had ruined my life and everybody else's. Why
not die, I thought miserably, and save everyone a lot of trouble?
As my family and friends visited, my spirits were on a roller-
coaster ride. I would feel so grateful when someone came a long
way to cheer me up. But the time would come when everybody
had to leave, and I'd lie there and stare at the wall, stare at the
future, stare at disbelief.
When I would finally fall asleep, I'd be whole again, making
love to Dana, riding or acting in a play. Then I'd wake up and
realize that I could no longer do any of that; I was just taking up
space.
One day Dana came into the room and stood beside me. I could
not talk because of the ventilator. But as we made eye contact, I
mouthed the words, "Maybe we should let me go."
Dana started crying. "I am only going to say this once," she
said. "I will support whatever you want to do because this is your
life and youi decision. Abut I want you to know that I'll be with
you for the long haul, no matter what."
Then she added the words that saved my life: "You're still you.
And I love you."
I can't drift away from this, I began to realize. I don't want to
leave.

topher Reeve)


About the Excerpt
What a wonderful piece of writing about the writer himself!
There was an accident and expressing about it was done in plain
and simple language.

This chosen piece also (like the others before it) is of a man-
ageable style that you can try out and soon be good at. Note how
the sparse use of dialogue has come through with great effect. Look
at how uncluttered the writer's thoughts are recorded. Note the
absence of many rounded characters. This is good writing!

1. Do you see the writer in his writing? Read again and come
up with words of your own for his character.

2. Write down words and phrases that the writer has used to
influence you into believing in his circumstances and feelings.
3. At what point in the writing', are you told that the writer is
soon to be overcome by his situation'?
4. How do you think this true story could end? Tell it to a
study partner.

Something to try: Make up a story around a true happening
like a personal experience, or one you have read about in the local
newspapers or a magazine.. Let's see how you would make the


victim react in the face of disbelief and despair. Do try to write
using the "I" narrator point of view. Discuss your effort with your
teacher or/and study partners.
Personal Check: What have you mastered well in your writ-
ing so far? 1Do check and come up with an accurate answer. Look
at the answer and resolve to add more skills to improve reader in-
terest and a better score.

Bringing the Story to Life
Reminder: There are many ways to bring a story to life.
Do not overuse the strategy of dialogue.
Use a few rounded characters.


The Passage
When critics wish to repudiate the world in which we live in
today, one of their familiar ways of doing it is to castigate modern
man because anxiety is his chief problem. This, they say, in W. H.
Auden's phrase, is the age of anxiety. This is what we have ar-
rived at with it, our vaunted progress, our great technological ad-
vances, our great wealth everyone goes about with a burden of
anxiety so enormous that, in the end, our stomachs and our arteries
and our skins express the tension under which we live. Americans
who have lived in Europe come back to comment on our favourite
farewell which, instead of the old goodbye (God be with you) is
now "Take it easy." each American admonishing the other not to
break down from the tension and strain of modern life.
Whenever an age is characterized by a phrase, it is presumably
in contrast with other ages. If we are the age of anxiety, what were
other ages'? And here the critics and carpers do a very amusing
thing. First, they give us lists of the opposites of anxiety: secu-
rity, trust, self-confidence, self-direction. Then without much fur-
ther discussion, they let us assume that other ages, other periods
of history, were somehow the ages of trust or confident direction.
The savage who, on his South Sea island, simply sat and let
bread fruit fall into his lap. the simple peasant, at one with the
fields he ploughed and the beasts he tended, the craftsman busy
with his tools and lost in his fulfillment of the instinct of work-
manship these are the counter-images conjured ul by descrip-
tions of the strain under which men live today. But no one who
lived in those days has returned to testify how paradisiacal they
really were.
Certainly if we observe and question the savages or simple
pheasants in the world today, we find something quite different.
The untouched savage in the middle of New Guinea isn't anxious;
he is seriously and continuously frightened of black magic, of
enemies with spears who may kill him or his wives and children at
any moment, while they stoop to drink from a spring, or climb a
palm tree for a coconut. He goes wearily, day and night, taut and
fearful.
As for the peasant population for the great part of the world,
they aren't so much anxious as hungry. They aren't anxious about
whether they will get a salary raise, or which of the three colleges
of their choice they will be admitted to, or whether they buy a
Ford or Cadillac, or whether the kind of TV set they want is too
expensive. They are hungry, cold and, in many parts of the world,
they dread that local warfare, and bandits. Political coups may
endanger their homes, their meager livelihoods and their lives. But
surely they are not anxious.
Anxiety, as we have come to use it to describe our characteris-
tic state of mind, can be contrasted with the active fear of hunger,
loss, violence, and death. Anxiety is the appropriate emotion when
the immediate personal terror of volcano, an arrow, the sorcerer's
spell, a stab in the back and other calamities, all directed against
one's self disappears.

Slow XVII .A meyrhrica eOcobr22.20


By Ellen Wulfthorst

NEW YORK (Reuters) Workers of America, take a break.
Born out of concern over the long hours U.S. workers put in
on the job. Take Back Your Time Day, set for October 24, is an
effort to remind hurried, harried people of what they're missing.
Slow down, say organizers who range from academics to activists
to volunteers. Turn off the cell phone, look at the falling leaves, sit
down to a family dinner, take a nap or just take a deep breath.
"Time is so important," said organiser Bonnie Michacls, a work-
life consultant based in Naples, Florida. "What we're offering is to
help people pay attention to the fact there are little ways to take it
back."
This will be. the fourth annual Take Back Your Time Day,
marked by events ranging from panel discussions to potluck
suppers, organizers said.
And plenty of people may mark the occasion on their own,
said national coordinator John de Graaf, who counts 10,000 members
on the Take Back Your Time mailing list.


The idea is to persuade U.S. workers who tend to work long
hours, put in more work hours then their European counterparts
and often fail to use their allotted vacation time to work less, he
said. Studies show working less improves productivity, employee
health and morale and reduces absenteeism and on-the-job accidents,
supporters say.
Having an annual Take Back Your Time Day helps get the
simple message across, said Michaels.
"It's such a difficult chore to get people to pay attention,"
she said. "We're just trying to remind people that they have
some choices and to set some limits in their lives. It's like
retraining yourself to have empty space."

LABOUR ACT
The date October 24 marks the day in 1940 that the 40-
hour work week took effect under the U.S. Fair Labour Standards
Act. These days, organizers are asking U.S. workers to, at the very
least, take a break.
"It could be as simple as just taking a walk with your family,

sitting down to a meal, laughing, playing a game, reflecting," said
Michaels. "We're not talking about big things here."
Take Back Your Time volunteer organiser Jodi Allison-Bunnell
of Missoula, Montana, says she limits herself to working less than
20 hours a week, and her husband keeps his weekly work hours to
35.
"The number of working hours is a big, big part of how we
have decided to spend our time," she said. "Some people look at
me I have a couple of graduate degrees and say, 'What are you
doing?' I could be doing some kind of high-powered thing, but I
really don't want to.
"1 wouldn't live any other way," she said.
Organisers concede that working fewer hours is a luxury reserved
for more affluent workers but argue that the effort needs to start
somewhere.
"Maybe if people at the top levels choose to work shorter
hours, maybe it will become stylish and work its way down," said
Sarah Ryan, a professor of labour studies at Evergreen State College
in Olympia, Washington.
And they are quick to say it takes more than one day a year to
make a change. They advocate regulations and legislation that would
guarantee paid sick leave, paid vacations, paid leave for parents of
newborns or adopted children and limits on compulsory overtime.
"In the sense of having changed society, we're not successful
at all," said de Graaf. "But the interest is there. People care about
this. so we want to keep it up.
"We hear from people all the time about little changes they
made in their lives. Those things all make me very happy,"
he added. "But we've got a long, long way to go."



Very young


children may


not get


enough sleep
By Anne Harding
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) Young children are get-
ting about nine hours of sleep a night, substantially less
than the 12- tol5- hours of shut-eye experts recommend.
a new study shows.
While it's not clear that children actually need a dozen hours
of nightly sleep. Dr. Christine Acchbo of the Bradley Hospital
Sleep and Chronobiology Research Laboratory in Providence.
Rhode Island told Reuters Health, the findings do raise the pos-
sibility that some young children may be sleep-deprived.
"Sleep's a very important part of our lives but it's typically
given short shrift in our culture." Acebo said. "Although adults
may be able to deal with that by other means, caffeine for ex-
ample, little kids may be kind of blowing in the wind about this."
Most research on sleep in young children is more than 25
years old, Acebo and her team note in the December issue of
Sleep, and there is little concrete information on how much
young kids sleep and how much sleep they need. The 12- to
15- hour recommendation, Acebo notes, is based on observa-
tions over the past decades of how much sleep young children
typically got.
To investigate the sleep and wake patterns of today's kids.
the researchers followed 169 healthy children one to five years
old for up to seven days. Wristwatch-like monitors called
actigraphs were attached to the ankle (in younger children) or
the wrist (in older children) to measure each child's activity.
while mothers kept sleep diaries.
Not surprisingly, the one-year-olds went to bed. earli-
est and slept the most. On average, children in the study
slept for 8.7 hours at night. The older the child, the shorter
the nap time, and by age five, just 43 per cent of kids were
napping.
The researchers also found children in lower-economic-sta-
tus families had more variability in bedtime and in total time
spelt asleep: they also woke up later in the morning. Children
from higher economic status families had more consistent bed-
t limes and woke up earlier. There's no evidence that either pat-
tern is better >for kids, Acebo notes.
Given the finlldings, parents with small children should be
on hIe lookout or sleep depri\ action in their kids. she ad\ ises.
"\Ve need ti b \e \ aleri to \\alch for signs of sleepiness in
children. I think both paiCentsildl lteCachers need to w\\atch if their
\Out child is \i\\ ning dtilirit f ihe di\s or kind of falling asleep

noted, pointing out that there is increasing evidence that

On the Medical geography of sickle cell hemoglobin
In our last article in this column, we briefly outlined the hemo-
globin variant called hemoglobin S and indicated its existence as "sub-
variants" technically called haplotypes of which three are known
from sub-Saharan Africa, namely, the Senegal, Benin and Central
African Republic haplotypes.
We provided a map of the geographic range of the variant or
haplotype called the Arab-Indian haplotype which occurs in the
Middle East and India (shown as figure 3 last week)
Unfortunately, the geographic range of the endemic African
haplotypes within the sickle cell hemoglobin variant which would
have been supported by figure 2 of last week was omitted due to
space limitations (and our late submission to the Editor). We pro-
vide this map below as figure 1 this week.

Genes, Hemoglobins and Sickle Cell Disease
Continuing our discussion from last week, we provide in a syn-
optic list of some of the salient take-home points as follows:
1) Hemoglobin genes "dictate" the sequencing of the amino
acid units for the synthesis of the globin proteins that characterize
the different hemoglobins (through a messenger RNA template);
2) Normal hemoglobin molecule consists of a set of fouIr
globin molecules two of which are structurally called alpha-globin
and the other two as beta-globin;

lit[It l'S (tlxHio lty ilm < i liste $is Minl o I T): IT)


3) The mutation resulting in the hemoglobin S gene leads to
the slbstiltution of a single amino acid,. as gluitaiic acid at position
6 in the beta-globin is rcpl'aced by the am3i]no acid valine as deim-
onstrated in one of our figures last week.
Anecdotally. Professor Vernon Ingram, of' the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, who was the discoverer of this specific
amino acid substitution responsible for sickle cell genetic trait, then
at Cambridge University laboratories passed away on August 17
this year at age 82. He authored one of his last publications on his
reflections in volume 167 of the journal Genetics published in May
2004.

first to denlonstralte a major chemical difference belwL *', 'ec nor-
mal and sickle hemoglobins with his colleagues in an arltit. ub-
lished in volume I 10 of the journal Science in I ).
4) The 'sickled" shape (see figure 2) of the red blood cells
is due to the ability of the globin molecules to 'coalesce' or aggre-
gate together in long chains called 'polymers" when there is a lack
of oxygen;
5) The 'sickled" cells easily deform and stick together

By Laura Macinnis

GENEVA (Reuters) Delicate wetlands, coasts and wildlife
sanctuaries could be ravaged as part of a struggle to stretch
the world's water supplies, with the worst damage foreseen in
poor countries.
Achim Steiner. executive director of the U.N. Environment
Programme (UNEP). said precious ecosystems like the Okavango
Delta in Botswana the planet's largest inland delta, which hosts a
diversity of fish, gmune and birds may be targeted as a fresh water
source if scarcity becomes acute.
"Botswana itself is a water-stressed country. The pressure to
extract water that would otherwise maintain that ecological paradise
will be immense," he told Reuters in a telephone interview from
UINE''s headquarters in Nairobi.
Water basins in Africa's Sahel region, especially Lake Chad, could
also be regarded as easy-to-access sources of fresh water if crippling
droughts continue to grip countries like Chad. Sudan. Somalia and
Ethiopia. Steiner said.
"There will be difficult choices to make." he said.
One billion people, about a sixth of humanity, now lacks access
to safe drinking water, and one in three lives in regions plagued by
water scarcity, according to U.N. data.
Steiner said human water consumption could jump another
40 per cent over the next 20 years as the global population
grows and more affluent societies demand more supplies for
drinking, bathing, irrigation, energy generation and
manufacturing.
Droughts, which scientists forecast will become more frequent
and severe in some already-arid areas as a result of climate change.
could further strain existing resources and heap pressure on
governments to secure enough water.
Wolfgang Grabs, who heads the water division of the World
. Meteorological Organisation (WMO), said countries that cannot
afford to upgrade their water procurement systems would be most
prone to hasty decisions in water inaagemllent.
"They will have to ask: 'Do I ensure agricultural production
for food security and water supply, or do 1 protect the
environment?," he said from the U.N. weather agency's Geneva
headquarters.
"The immediate consequence, if the environment is affected, is
that the number of living species will be diminished in \\etland,
river and lake are:is." he added.
Animal life can also stiffer seriously' from water scarcity

FARMERS in rural areas involved in duck
production are encouraged to.become
involved in restrictive feeding to ensure the
Pekin duck production industry remains
competitive.
In an investigative study recently conducted by Juan
Solomon. Senior Research Assistant, Livestock Department.
National Agricultural Research Institute. it was revealed that
feed utilization accounts for approximately 72 per cent of the
total cost of production for Pekin ducks reared intensively
on commercial feed in Guyana. The wasteful feeding habits
of the Pekin ducks cause many farmers, particularly those in
the rural communities where
the cost of feed is expensive
because of transportation, to be
unable to rear these ducks on
commercial feeds.
He also noted that in most
rural villages many farmers use
locally available agro by-
products or table scraps as a **
cheaper means of raising their
ducks with far less success,
mainly because of inadequate
nutrition. This practice, results
in the ducks taking a longer
time for market weights. Some
farmers reported a range of four
to six months to attain a
market weight of 2.3 kg live weight. The slow growth rate
has led not only to a reduction in profit gained but also more
expensive to rear Pekin ducks due to the extended duration
of feeding to meet desirable market weights.
In addressing the challenges farmers experience in
ensuring the economic viability of the duck industry, Mr.


Solomon advocates the concept of quantitative restrictive using
commercial feed. "Quantitative Restrictive feeding is a
technique intended to reduce feed cost input but reducing the
amount to feed given to the birds. This could attract farmers
at the different levels or tiers of the production chain i.e.
farmers who could afford to full feed their ducks thus allowing
for maximum weight at the market age of 56 days or farmers
who would practice restricted feeding up to 56 days, and

According to Dr. 0.
Hlomenauth. Director. NARI,
the data generated from this
study is useful for the
successful diversification of the
agricultural sector and urges
persons to utilise the services
offered by NARI for the
expansion and viability of their
agricultural operations. "The
information generated is
available for members of the
public free of cost. Persons are
encouraged to make maximum
use of all services offered by
NARI"

Please s'ee Table I Below


In congratulating Mr.
Solomon. the young brilliant
2 12.83 researcher on his achievement,
Dr. Homenauth reiterated the
2.628 call for more young persons to
become involved in agriculture.
"The future of the agricultural
1156.32 sector is vested in the young
people who are the leaders of
430.82 tomorrow. Agriculture is not
only the tedious task of toiling
276.06 in the fields but also
encompasses trade negotiations,
1.59 economic research, planning
and forecasting. Mr. Solomon
should be proud of his
achievements and strive to
attain higher goals. His work
will significantly contribute
towards empowering many
especially women in the rural
communities," he said.

are: farming techniques, employing new technologies to gen-
erate higher yields and reduce waste; and selling to external
markets.
Prepare the necessary agricultural infrastructure since
much of the arable soil that is needed lies below the high-tide mark
of the sea and rivers. More investment in the necessary heavy ex-
penditures is required to make agricultural expansion possible, by
building and improving the infrastructure so as to: prevent flooding
and allow for drainage and irrigation.
Continue to develop research in other areas besides the
coast where the soil could be made productive.
Food Security in Guyana
At the same time that we work to expand and improve
Guyana's agricultural exports, we must focus our agricultural policy
on food security for Guyana's population. To this end. Guyana
miust develop food-processing plants and large-scale agriculture.
u which must be done to keep the rice and sugar industries from col-
lapsing. FIanners and millers must have access to financial assistance. and
the market nustl be approached by a combination of long-term planning
and aggressive overseas marketing. If rice and sugar arc to maintain their
impofance as cash crops, we must improve the genetic varieties of rice
and sugar cane and modernise the mills. All aspects of these industries
must be privatized. and at the samune time. investors must be courted and
new markets found and developed.
The livestock industry must be made more efficient and pro-
ductive. making use of modern technology. Facilities and infrastruc-
ture. such as veterinary diagnostic facilities, will have to be improved.
From the marketing standpoint, we must encourage joint ven-
ture investment with European, American and Caribbean interests.
and begin consideration of exporting livestock. http://
guyanavision2020.comVchapterl.htm
Guyana has great potential in the agricultural sector. The prob-
lems come because of the adequate investment needed to sustain
this industry. What Guyana requires is substantial investment at
all levels of the sector in order to enhance productivity. Thus. a
blooming agriculture industry will mean better life for all Guyanese.
Too many Guyanese are being denied a basic right, the right to ad-
equate food. Do join us next week where we will continue to exam-
ine more exciting and interesting events. Make Guyana a better
place. invest in Agriculture!

Pharmacogenomics 9

From page XIX
in the absence of adequate oxygen levels;
6) These sickled cells which are prone to forming polymers
also induce a gene called endothelin-1. This gene is responsible
for the ability of the sickle cell aggregates to stick to the inner walls
of the blood vessels and cause blockage of the blood vessels in the
symptom medical doctors call vaso-occlusion (see figure 3 below).

7) This endothelin-1 gene expression phenomenon has
been the basis for explaining the effect of the sickle cell disease
drug hydroxyurea in paper published in volume 3 of the journal
The Pharmacogenomics Journal in March 2003 by French scien-
tists led by Professor Brun of INSERM and the University in
Guadeloupe.

8) Though sickle cell disease is classified as a monogenic dis-
ease "arising from a single point mutation in the beta-globin gene,
it is characterized by considerable clinical heterogeneity [variations
in symptoms]. Stroke is a particularly devastating manifestation of
SCA, afflicting 11% of children before the age of 20 years," ac-
cording to Professor Carolyn Hoppe, in an article published online
in volume 13 of the European Journal of Human Genetics in May
2005.

9) Using Bayesian mathematics, there are a number of single
point gene mutations called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs
; pronounced "snips") within the hemoglobin S gene which may
relate to different rates and risk factors for the incidence of child-
hood stroke in sickle cell disease children according to Dr. Ohcne
Frempong and his colleagues in their paper published in volume 91
of the journal Blood in 1998.

10) In an article presently in press for the journal Current
Obstetrics and Gynaecology, to be published later this year or early
next year, Dr. Eugene Oteng-Ntim (we thank him for providing us
an author's proof copy before publication) and his colleagues of
the UK have discussed several risks involving pregnant sickle cell
disease patients who may suffer from massive blood loss due to
the "break up" of red blood cells in what is called hemolytic ane-


nnia.
As a matter of conjecture, are some of our local situations in-
volving some miolhlcrs dying during child birth related also to unde-
termined sickle cell disease? Though some press reports have al-
luded to diabetes or other conditions.

I1) Because of the human genomric diversity of the
Guyanese population and the prevalence of such unfortunate
cases of maternal death during delivery among particular
genetic groups which we may erroneously label as "ethnic
groups" \ve need to consider mandatory genetic tests to
encompass hemoglobin-related diseases, the so-called
hemoglobinopathics in our local medical policy framework.
The relevance of basic genetic testing for sickle cell trait and
other hemoglobin variants locally warrants careful but urgent con-
sideration.

12) According to an article to be published in the Euro-
pean Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Reproductive
Biology (article in proof) white blood cell count can be a very
important indicator of risk in the sickle cell disease pregnant
patient.

The authors state: "Compared to asymptomatic patients,
women who developed SCD-related complications had signifi-
cantly higher total WBC count 111.2 x 10" L (SD 3.22) ver-
sus 8 x 10 L (2.8), p < 0.01], higher lymphocyte count
[3 x 10 L (1.62) versus 1.6 x 10" L (0.65), p < 0.011 and
higher monocyte count 10.8 x 10' L (0.47) versus
0.4 x 10" L (0.21). p < 0.011." (the quotation of data may
be useful only for professionals)

13) In another article in press for the Journal of Clinical Fo-
rensic Medicine, sickle cell disease has been attributed to the cause
of death due to law enforcement restraint on a Canadian with schizo-
phrenic symptoms who died during an arrest.
Here again, could a recent local case on the East Coast of an
individual dying in the lock-up be due to an unbeknown sickle cell
crisis exacerbated by lack of adequate oxygen in the holding facil-
ity? The application of genetics in our medical laboratory reper-
toire in the field of forensic medicine on the local scene seems rea-
sonable.

In all this. all may not be lost for the sickle cell disease
patient or trait carrier. There is evidence that in what may be
termed "Darwinian medicine." prevalence of the hemoglobin
S gene in malaria endemic regions may have been an "evolu-
tionary trade-off' selecting trait carriers against malaria in-
fection, particularly. against the Plasmodium falciptrum spe-
cies (Current Opiiion in Microbiology volume 9 issue 4 pub-
lished in August 2006 by Dr. Thomas William of the Wellcome
Trust Collaborative programme of Kenya)

Additionally, a very recent study out of Iran indicates lower
levels of bad cholesterol in sickle cell trait carriers and disease pa-
tienls. suggesting an advantage in lower coronary artery disease risk
(heart disease risk), according to an article in volume 365 of the
journal Clinica Chimica Acta published in March 2006 by Dr.
Zohreh Rahimi of the Iranian Medical Biology Research Centre and
colleagues.

"Rock music has come to a standstill it's not going for-

saying.
The 55-year-old singer, real name Gordon Sumner, had a string
of hits with The Police with songs like 'Roxanne' and 'Don't Stand
So Close To Me'. He has since also had a lucrative solo career with
songs like 'Englishman in New York'.
"Forty years ago it was my dream to break out of Newcastle
and never be poor again," he told the magazine.
"I'm very privileged. I'm a successful musician, live in a

Loren


By Eric J. Lyman
ROME (Hollywood Reporter) Well, goodness gracious me!
Rome failed to invite its own doyenne of cinema Sophia Loren
to its big new film festival and looked to make good by ask-
ing her to come next year instead.
Nicole Kidman, Monica Bellucci and Scan Connery were among
those in attendance at the inaugural RomaCinemaFest this week.
Loren found herself left out of the party. La Stampa newspaper
ran a front-page headline: 'La Loren Furiosa'.
But there were no apologies Wednesday for the iconic star from
the organizers of RomaCinemaFest.
"We had already decided to make Sophia Loren the star of the
second edition of the festival, so there should be no controversy."
Rome Mayor Walter Veltroni said Wednesday. "We didn't invite
her this year because we hoped she would be the guest of honour
next year, just as Scan Connery was this time."
It was Veltroni who came up with the idea for the Rome festi-
val two years ago.
Loren confirmed in a statement that she would be
"honoured and pleased" to play a central role in next year's
festival.
Loren's decision to accept the invitation for the second
RomaCinemaFest had been the subject of speculation for several
days, ever since Italian Parliament member Alessandra Mussolini -
granddaughter of Italy's fascist dictator and Loren's niece blasted
festival organizers for excluding the actress.
The spat, however, did not deter from the day-to-day business
of the festival, which returned to a full schedule Wednesday alter
many events were postponed or canceled the day before in the wake
of a Rome metro accident that left one person dead and more than
100 injured.
Full houses greeted the highly anticipated screening of
Giuseppe Tornatore's 'La Sconosciuta' (The Unknown) and
Shane Meadows' 'This Is England' on Wednesday. Meadows'
feature tells the story of a group of British skinheads in the
early 1980s.

Message from
Tourism,
Industry and
Commerce
Minister, Mr
Manniram
Prashad,
Chairman,
GUYEXPO 2006
Hon. Manniram Prashad M.P.
"It is indeed a pleasure for me in my first year as Minister of Tourism,
Industry & Commerce to be hosting Guyexpo 2006 Guyana's larg-
est trade and investment exposition.. .and indeed it has become 'large'.
Each year, work is done to improve and expand the grounds and the facilities at the National
Exhibition Centre, to make it comfortable and attractive to the patrons and exhibitors.
Over the years, Guyexpo has grown and evolved with new ideas being introduced and this
year is no exception with the introduction (due to popular demand) of an I.T. and Electronics
pavilion where you will find all the latest gadgets keeping Guyana up-to-date with worldwide
technology.
Apart from products, Guyana boasts immense talent, which you will witness in the nightly
stage entertainment by some of Guyana's top artistes highlighting the country's diverse culture
and people.
The private sector, once again, will be on show in all their glory. Guyanese goods and
products have already reached the Caribbean markets (as seen in trade shows) and internation-
ally. Our manufacturing sector has developed immensely and our goods are sought after by
foreign buyers and investors.
The popularity and demand of Guyexpo has seen it grow from a biennial exhibition to an
annual exhibition with more high quality products and goods on display from both large and small
industries.
Guyexpo has encouraged more entrepreneurs, more business people and more investors to
develop their products with a sense of dedication as last year's theme encouraged 'Pride in our
Industry'.
It seems only fitting that this year our hard working manufacturers will be showcas-
ing under the theme 'Exhibiting Excellence'.

GUYEXPO SPECIAL Sunday, October 22, 2006ct

. ,- ,"l. .


GUYEXPO, since its launch in 1995, has been billed
as Guyana's premier trade fair and exposition.
But it this year has taken on special importance in view
of an even bigger event next year Cricket Wortd Cup.
Security measures to be implemented for Cricket World Cup
(CWC) 2007 will be put on a trial mn at Gi IYFXPO 2006.
For that purpose, private firms have been conItracted
to work along with the Guyana Police Force to ensure maxi-
mum security for the Guyanese public. Connunander of Po-
lice 'A' Division. Assistant Conmmissioner Paul Slowe said.
He was speaking at a meeting, \witlIh members of the
GUYEXPO Security Committee and l'ourisii. Industry- and
Commerce Minister. Mr. Manniram Prashad. to discuss the
event.
"'We are going to use GUYEXPO as the opportunity


to tc,1 certain aspects of our security for Cricket World.
Cup". Mr Slowe said. -
According to him, although the 2005 exposition was in-
cident free because of additional steps taken, the arrange.,-.
merts \i ill be enhanced this year.
Slo\e revealed that obse ives froin the International
Cricket CO'incil (ICC'i would be here to ascertain that the
plans are effective.
A nmenmber of tile \CWC security team, lie said it is
a requirement that the strategy he tried at two events
before the cricket matches and Guaiiana chose
(;UNEXPO as one.
Il l pointed out tliat olthcr countries hosting sil ilar
uittcheIC' hii\e ;hlread had tleir strat,'gics IClCed
Slo\\s said \\h,it \\a- done last \L'ear, including pre-sale


of tickets, putting ticket booths away from the gates and
scanning people for offensive weapons, would all be re-
peated this year.
He said a significant number of Police ranks will be on
duty to patrol the GUYEXPO area and persons will not
be allowed to take any weapons into the fair.
Slowe said information will also be published at vari-
ous times, advising how persons can make it difficult for,
criminal elements.
Co-Chairman of GUYEXPO. Mr Keilh Burrowes said
five private firms have been recruited for the October 26-
31 exhibition, at a cost of millions of dollars, as security is
thle main concern.
He said further discussions \\ill take place about en-
suring that persons in vehicles purchase tickets before they
reach the venue as a measure to ease traffic congestion.
After Minister Prashad said there will be more po-
licewvomen scanning persons. following complaints last
year. Slowe explained that a few shortcomings were
documented and would be acted upon this year.

GUYEXPO 2006, billed for October 26-31 at the Sophia Exhi-
bition Centre in Georgetown, is expected to be larger than
previous shows, according to a top official.
Coordinator of GUYEXPO 2006, Mr Percival Boyce last week
said there has been an overwhelming response from the local busi-
ness community forcing the planning committee to reject several
business persons who have applied to be part of the grand event.
In an interview with the Guyana Chronicle, he said it is unfor-
tunate that some applications had to be rejected but in the interest
of the smooth running of the event it has become necessary to have
a manageable number of participants.
He said because of national elections the time span in which
to organise the exposition was reduced drastically and much shorter
than in previous years. However, over the past six weeks there has
been "a tremendous response from the local business community"
and the auditoriums have been completely sold out, he reported.
Boyce indicated that so far 186 companies had registered to,
participate in the event, but noted that because businesses are be-
coming more "exhibition conscious", they have been grabbing more
booths some as many as eight unlike previous years when
most entities rented just spot.
Several companies from the Caribbean have registered to par-
ticipate, including Barbados and Antigua, while the Indonesia Em-
bassy in Paramaribo is expected to mount a booth dealing with in-
formation on Indonesian products and businesses to explore the
possibilities of establishing trading links with companies here.
In addition, Boyce disclosed that the Governor of Roraima.
from neighboring Brazil, along with a business entourage is ex-
pected to attend the trade fair.
A group of Canadian businessmen, comprising prospective buy-
ers and investors, is expected too, he said, adding that the Guyana
Office for Investment (GO-INVEST) will facilitate meetings, be-
twcen the foreign businessmen and their local counterparts.
* Basically, the arrangements for last year arc similar. butl be-
cause of. the .expected,lauge. displays by. thc.h Inforomation Tucchlnol-

ogy and electronics sector, booths will be housed where the inter-
national pavilion stood last year.
Boyce said plans and preparations are on stream and he is con-
fident that the event will be successful.
However, one area of concern is the slow pace at which some
participants are erecting their booths as the stipulated time for
completion of booths is two days before the scheduled starting day.
In this regard, a meeting was held recently with 100 exhibi-
tors to remind them of the time stipulation and other requirements,
Boyce said.
Asked about concerns that the event defeats its real purpose
because of loud and blaring music sets disturbing and distracting
from the show, Boyce conceded that the planning committee has
recognized this problem and as a result a conscious effort is being
made to control loud music.
He said that included in the contracts of entertainment
groups is a clause for music to be played at moderate levels.
"If they do not comply vwe will take action." Boyce declared.
liHe added that tlie planning committee is working closely with
the police and International Cricket Conference (ICC) volunteers
to ensure stipulations are complied with.
"In fact, GUYEXPO is being used as dry run in preparation
for World Cup Cricket," Boyce added.
One of the areas that will be monitored by ICC volunteers is
the capacity of emergency responses as well as identifying weak-
nesses which need to be corrected during Cricket World Cup, Boyce
said.
Security measures for vehicles will also be implemented,
as the exhibition centre is the only location in Georgetown
which boasts parking facilities to cater for 800-1,000 cars. Boyce
assured.
In the past, he admiittcd, sales of tickets threatened to mar tlie
event andit a s result on this occasion ticket selling capacity has
been boosted to reduce the confusion and chaos will two addi


will line the entrances to the booths to help maintain orderly queu-
ing.
A new feature in helping to ensure orderly queuing will be the
deployment of persons referred to as 'Queue Busters'. an ICC in-
novation, and they will be tasked with the job of seeing that no
one gets out of the lines when queuing for tickets. Boyce disclosed.
In addition, a special ticket booth will be in place to facilitate
drivers of vehicles to drive up and purchase their tickets before
parking, he said.
He also said that the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph
(GT&T) company and the Colonial Life Insurance Company
(CLICO) have offered sponsorship for the show and the latter will
be offering a car from a drawing of tickets from those who attend
the show.
Boyce said he is looking forward to the biggest GUYEXPO
and steps are being implemented to measure the achievements
of the trade show, such as exhibitors getting additional busi-
nesses, establishment of joint ventures and being export ready
particularly for the Caribbean Single market and Economy
(CSME).
"Arrangements are in place, and I hope it will bear fruit." Boyce
optimistically declared.
Co-Chairman of GLIYEXPO. Mr Keith Burrowes last year de-
scribed the event as "an institution" that was transformed from a
simple but powerful idea a decade ago.
GUYEXPO began in 1995 to showcase locally produced goods
and services and has since grown exponentially in terms of atten-
dance, participation and scope.
At tIhe opening ceremony of GUYIEXPO last year. President
Bliarrat .lagdeo declared: "I amll confident that Guyanla is up to the

D GUYEXPO SPECIAL Sunday, October 22, 2006


Message from

Mr Keith Burrowes,

Co-Chairman,

GUYEXPO
"We are once again involved in earnest preparations
for the now familiar annual GUYEXPO Trade Fair.
This year's preparations started somewhat later than
usual, which has resulted in a shift in dates from September
to October.
As Co-Chairman of this trade show for the third
successive year and having been intimately involved for
much longer, I and my Organizing Committee are not fully
satisfied that we have been deriving maximum rettims from
this event, consistent with our efforts and in the way that
we desire and expect.
Consequently, our focus this year has been to shift
our priorities and place more emphasis on
streamlining and restructuring the support systems -
both internal and external to achieve higher levels
of efficiency ahd accountability. We expect that this
approach would provide a firm basis to assess the
impact of the, event on all or'r stakeholders, and
particularly oui exhibitors and service'providers. Some
of these efforts started in 2005.
We have already put in place systems to facilitate
smoother planning of future events. We have also enhanced
our capacity to provide greater levels of infrastructural
facilities for the benefit of both participants and patrons.
Financial accountability has also been strengthened with an
Internal Auditor coming on board from the inception of the
planning this year.
However, our greatest achievement has been in our
efforts to introduce systems and procedures to assess in a
more profound manner, the impact of the event on the
business of exhibitors and service providers and in a more
general way, on our economy. We have been able to achieve
this by working more closely with all stakeholders, and I
must say that the cooperation from all private and public
sector participants has been tremendous and quite
gratifying.
At the end of the day. we should be able to determine
the reasons for exhibitors' participation and whether they'
have achieved their objectives and see their business grow.
Our committed goals are to provide a platform to assist
local business to grow and expand.
Organising this trade fair has also given our
committee a great opportunity to collaborate
closely with the Local Organizing Committee
(LOC) of Cricket World Cup 2007. This
collaboration extends to knowledge sharing in the
common activities of both events, including
security, catering services and managing
volunteers in the key service areas.
This cooperation, we hope, would help to justify and
enhance our nation's ability to host such a large scale event
as the Cricket World Cup and project a positive image of
our country to the outside world.
At this time I wish to extend a very warm wnelcomii. io
our foreign participants, especially the first timers from
countries such as India, Canada, Brazil, China, Barbados
and others to the trade show. I wish them every success
and hope that their participation would have a positive
impact on their businesses and would encourage their future
participation.
In closing, I would like to thank all the exhibitors,
the Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, the
members of the Organizing Committee of GUYEXPO
06, members of staff of the GUYEXA 1Wetariat and
'all the 6ther persons who have contriliued their efforts
and time to make this trade show a continuous
success."

with a growing access to Brazil,
and a linkage to the entire Car-
ibbean market. The GCCI
would like to encourage all pri-
vate sector companies who are
not part of GUYEXPO 2006,
to get on board such a venture,
since it is one of the best ways.
in marketing in today's world of
business.
The road ahead for the
