CANBERRA, (Reuters) A dead man has been
blamed for hundreds of speeding offences in Aus-
tralia in what police believe is a major fraud de-
signed to help motorists avoid traffic fines.
Police in Sydney said 240 people were under in-
vestigation over the speeding scam, where hundreds of
motorists blamed either the same dead man, or a per-
son living in another state, for driving their cars at the

time of the speeding offences.
"These offences amoun to fraud amd, if proven, those involved
could face stiff penalties including imprisonment," New South
Wales Police Superintendent yl Di molly said in a statement
The police investigation found Inm eds of people named the
same man from Sydney's west, who died five years ago, as the
person who was driving their vehicle when it was speeding. It fol-
lows nationwide publicity given to retired Federal Court judge
Marcus Einfeld who avoided a AS77 ($59) speeding fine when he

named a dead woman as driving his car a the time.
Eifeld denied any wogdoiw but Bli c-ase remains m
der investigation for possible fraud or prjuy charges.

PRIME Minister Samuel
Hinds yesterday visited resi-
dents of Cinderella City, in
Linden, hit by electric shock
after lightning during a storm
Friday morning damaged
power lines causing electric-
ity to surge into several
homes resulting in the death
of one person.
The Government Informa-
tion Agency (GINA) said Mr.
Hinds met the family of
Godfrey Belgrave, who died, and
visited an injured person at the
Linden Public Hospital and
other residents who were treated
and discharged.
He expressed his dismay at
their suffering due to selfish acts
by certain persons and said the
government intends to attack the
root cause of the problem, the
agency reported.
Belgrave's death was attrib-
uted to the removal of the earth
rod, which is normally placed
eight feet into the ground to ab-
sorb the voltage from lightning
and transferring it safely into
the ground thus keeping it away
from the distribution system.
Due to an upsurge in the de-
mand for scrap metal, unscrupu-
lous persons have been

vandalising public utilities and
private properties.
Prime Minister Hinds, in a
release Friday night stated that
"vandalism has inflicted a loss of
use many times the estimated
value of G$12M for earnings of
no more than quarter million
Guyana dollars (G$250,000), just
about two per cent of the value
of the destroyed equipment."
At a forum with scrap metal
dealers on October 26, 2006, the
Prime Minister said the Govern-
ment would ensure that legisla-
tive action is instituted to re-
strain the export of scrap metal.
As a consequence, the gov-
ernment will publish notices in
the daily newspapers indicating
that from January 1, 2007 expor-
tation of scrap metal will end.
Until the deadline exporta-
tion will continue under strict
supervision and inspection in
adherence with the law, the
statement said.
Guidelines for the contin-
ued exportation until the
deadline can be collected
from the Ministry of Tour-
ism, Industry and Commerce,
South Road or from the Of-
fice of the Prime Minister,
Wright's Lane, Kingston.

A Beretta submachine gun with four magazines and 120
rounds 9mm ammunition were found in the Bel Air home, Po-
lice said.
Mr. Greene Friday attributed the find to the increased in-
telligence gathering capacity of his force.
Sources said one of the persons arrested in the North
Ruimveldt home is ex-policeman Shawn Hinds.
In 2004, Hinds and two others, Mark Thomas called
'Kerzorkee' and Ashton King, then owner of the A&D Funeral
Parlour in Georgetown, were charged with the murder of cattle
farmer Shafeek Bacchus.
Lynch was adjudged Mrs. South America at the recent Mrs.
Globe pageant in California and was crowned on October 27
by Mrs. Globe Maria "Mada" Daphne of Greece.
The Guyanese beauty, who was also a finalist in the re-
cent Mrs World pageant in Russia, has more than 10 years ex-
perience in modelling and pageantry.
As Mrs. South America, Lynch has the responsibility
of working with the Women In Need (WIN) Foundation,
which specializes in empowerment of women, but has
programmes for youth and children.

Bush talks of change,

car bombs kill eight

By Claudia Parsons

BAGHDAD (Reuters) Presi-
dent Bush said yesterday his
new defence secretary was an
"agent of change" in a sign
of the growing momentum
for a new direction in Iraq
policy after election defeat
for Bush's Republicans.
Two car bombs in a
Baghdad market killed eight
people and Iraqi security forces
were the target of several attacks
around the country as insurgents
and sectarian groups kept up
the pressure on the Iraqi gov-
ernment and its U.S. backers.
Gunmen stopped three
minibuses carrying Shi'ites
south of Baghdad, killed nine
passengers and kidnapped 13
others, police said. The attack
took place in Latifiya, a town
in the 'Triangle of Death', so
called because of the large num-
ber of attacks by Sunni insur-
gents against U.S. troops.
The Pentagon's top general,
Peter Pace, has said U.S. mili-
tary leaders are preparing to
recommend changes in Iraq
strategy. The Iraq Study Group,
led by Bush family friend and
former secretary of state James
Baker and former congressman
Lee Hamilton, is also looking at
alternative approaches.

This week's surprise resig-

Donald Rumsfeld followed a
crushing defeat for the Repub-
licans in Tuesday's midterm
Bush chose a former CIA
director and pragmatist Rob-
ert Gates who is expected to
be more inclined to consensus-
building than the combative
"He has experience leading
large and complex organizations,
and he has shown that he is an

weekly radio address. "He will

provide a fresh outlook on our
strategy in Iraq, and what we
need to do to prevail."
Bush has acknowledged
voter frustration over Iraq
helped fuel wins for Democrats
that swept them to power in
both houses of Congress for the
first time in 12 years.
While indicating he wants
new ideas, Bush has insisted a
quick withdrawal of U.S. troops
from Iraq is not on the table.
The White House is push-
ing to get Gates confirmed in
the final weeks of the outgoing
Congress. before power
switches to Democrats early
next year.
The biggest challenge for
Gates will be halting a slide into
chaos in Iraq, where the pres-
ence of some 150,000 U.S.
troops is not stopping sectarian
violence and insurgent attacks
that kill hundreds of civilians
every week. Last month, a se-
nior general acknowledged a ma-
jor campaign to stop violence in
Baghdad was not working, and
said the violence was "disheart-

in quick succession in central

Washington has focused on
training and reinforcing Iraq's
own security forces in the
hope of being able to hand over
responsibility for security and
draw down its own troops.
But Iraqi security forces are'
under-equipped and frequently
attacked by insurgents, deter-
ring recruitment. There were at-
tacks on police in Kirkuk,
Baquba and Baghdad yesterday.
The police are also often ac-
cused of taking sides in sectar-
ian strife because of what Sunni
Arabs say is infiltration by
Shi'ite militias.
The Shi'ite- and
Kurdish-dominated govern-
ment of Prime Minister Nuri
al-Maliki has struggled to
balance the demands of its
various coalition members,
and has yet to come through

U.S. vetoes UN

resolution condemning

Israel on Gaza
By. Irwin Arieff

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) The United States yesterday ve-
toed a UN Security Council resolution condemning an Israeli
attack in Gaza that killed 18 Palestinian civilians and urging
a quick withdrawal of Israeli forces from the area.
Nine of the council's 15 members voted for the measure, while
four abstained: Britain, Denmark, Japan and Slovakia.
But the "no" vote cast by US Ambassador John Bolton his
second since he arrived at U.N. headquarters a little over a year ago
- was enough to kill the resolution.
The measure, backed by Arab, Islamic and nonaligned nations
and formally proposed by Qatar, would have called on the Palestin-
ian Authority to "take immediate and sustained action to bring an
end to violence, including the firing of rockets on Israeli territory."
It would have urged the international community to take steps
to stabilise the situation, revive the Middle East peace process and
consider "the possible establishment of an international mechanism"
for the protection of civilians.
It also would have condemned Israeli military operations in Gaza
and called on the Jewish state to withdraw all troops from Gaza
and end its operations in all Palestinian lands.
Seven children and four women were among the dead in the Is-
raeli shelling, for which Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has apologized,
calling it an accidental "technical failure" by the Israeli military.
But Palestinian leaders have called it a massacre.
Bolton said Washington regretted the loss of life in Wednesday's
artillery attack in Beit Hanoun but "we are disturbed at the lan-
guage of the resolution which is in many places biased against Israel
and politically motivated."
The suggestion of a mechanism to protect civilians would
raise false hopes, he said, adding that he was disturbed the
measure made no mention of the Palestinians' elected Hamas
government, which refuses to acknowledge Israel's right to exist
or renounce violence.

Argentina bomb charges

TEHRAN, (Reuters) Iran

an Argentinian judge for the
bombing of a Jewish centre in
Buenos Aires was part of a Zi-

THE GUYANA Police Force is clearly stepping up to the
plate, as the saying goes, in waging a recognisably
more fierce battle against crime. The GPF's successes
within recent months in capturing armed criminal
bandits and caches of illegal arms should help to
boost public confidence.
Now, with new anti-crime programmes unfolded on
Friday by acting Police Commissioner Henry Greene, as
reported in our yesterday's edition, the GPF seems to
be finally engaged in a more coordinated campaign
to smash the criminal networks at large.
With a more visible armed police presence in the
business centres of Georgetown and environs, has
come welcome news that some have long been waiting
to receive.
These include the proposed launch in the new year
of a new anti-crime SWAT (special weapons and tactics)
Unit and the re-introduction of the GPF's education
media programme 'Law Enforcement and You' (the
As crime sleuths were reporting new arrests and


discovery of arms and ammunitions in ongoing anti-
crime activities, the high command of the GPF was
disclosing Friday special policing arrangements to
protect the public's welfare during the coming Christmas
shopping season.
This particular anti-crime initiative in Georgetown for
the Christmas holidays will involve some 120 Patrol
Officers under the supervision of well known Senior
Superintendent, Steve Merai, as part of the general
operations of the Force's 'Division A', under the
Command of the very experienced Assistant
Commissioner, Paul Slowe.
While we await to learn of similar initiatives in the
towns and business centres of other regions, including
Berbice and Essequibo, it is to be hoped that members
of the public would appreciate the value of their own
cooperation in helping the Force to beat back the
criminals who have been causing so much death and
despair for far too long.
The justice administration system also needs to be
more proactive in addressing problems that must be

resolved within the framework of a new anti-crime
strategy that could go a long way to restore
the national image of Guyana which has been badly
tarnished by armed criminals, drug traffickers and

Shaping up for stunning changes in Washington

AS THE world settles down to an expected new approach to
democratic governance in Washington by the very politically
wounded George Bush presidency, there are issues for consideration
in CARICOM-USA relations during the two remaining years of the
Republican leader's occupancy of the White House.
One such consideration is whether CARICOM will give prior-
ity attention to new approaches, including effective and sustained
lobbying initiatives, in dealing with the Republican administration
and the now Democrats-controlled Congress, to secure more mean-
ingful responses to CARICOM's
For a start, critically reviewing
the work of our Washington-based

I have been advised by CARICOM Secretariat sources that
following two meetings earlier this year with U.S. Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice first in The Bahamas and more recently in New
York there are "good reasons" to think that a significant improve-
ment has been achieved in U.S.-CARICOM relations. This is good
to know; but proof of the pudding lies in the eating.
A good opportunity for expanding and concretising gains re-
portedly made in U.S.-CARICOM relations even as the
Community remains firm on its principled relationships with two
"enemy" governments of America, Cuba and Venezuela will come

at the 'Conference of the Caribbean' scheduled for Washington in
July next year to coincide with 'Caribbean-American Heritage'
With that event seven and half months away, it may be useful
if an initiative is taken by CARICOM to seek a formal meeting with
leaders of the new U.S. Congress
by either a representative delega-
tion of Heads of Government, or
at the level of Foreign Ministers
on a prioritised agenda for advanc-
ing U.S.-
CARICOM cooperation.
While in Washington on such
a mission, the CARICOM team
could also have a meeting with the
Secretary General of the
Organisation of American States
(OAS) to discuss, among other
matters, how the Caribbean region,
which has the single largest bloc of BACK IN POWER
votes in the hemispheric body, Daniel Ortega
could have some
meaningful positions of its nationals in the administrative structures
of the organisation.

Tuesday's U.S. mid-term elections was one of four major

It was not the death sentence delivered on Sunday to ex-Iraqi
dictator Saddam Hussein after a highly controversial political trial.
Nor was it the return, officially on Wednesday, of Nicaragua's
Daniel Ortega as President, after
16 years in opposition wilderness
and two previous unsuccessful
bids, to offer new leadership of
what is rated as the second poor-
est nation in the Western Hemi-
sphere after Haiti.
No, not even the stunning
change in the power structures of
the USA that has ended a dozen
years of' complete dominance of
Congress by Republicans, to leave
Democrats in control of both the
House of Representatives and Sen-
ate, came as a surprise, given the
recunrring forecasts of reliable opin-
ion polls.

surprise of significance was the Brian Lara
shocking failure of the West
Indies team to retain the ICC Champion Trophy in the final duel
with Australia.
Like countless West Indians, I had so arranged my work to en-
joy this anxiously awaited battle in the ICC series played out in
India. But enjofilent was not to be. Readers who share the lainfull

disappointment of the West Indies' horrible collapse know the rest.
The silly excuse offered by Brian Lara about likely "stage
fright" by our team, has served only to make it an even more
hurtful blow. Alas, this game of glorious uncertainties was to
send the Aussies rejoicing ahead of Cricket World Cup 2007.
"Stage fright?" Give me a break, to use a popular Bajan ex-
SADDAM'S DEATH SENTENCE: Apart from the U.S. mid-
term elections, another of the major political developments last week
included Sunday's death verdict imposed on Saddam Hussein. That
could hardly have been a surprise to those who had spent some
time over the past year following the circus trial by a United States
established, funded and controlled court.
In the process, three leading defence lawyers were murdered;
the first appointed chief judge suddenly removed and replaced by
one more pliable.
Yet. I have no tears to shed for the Iraqi political tyrant or for
the U.S. administration that was so wrong in its military invasion
of his country only to find itself trapped in a bloody scenario of
death, destruction and despair.

The George Bush administration wanted a verdict to coincide
with the eve of Tuesday's mid-term elections. The Iraqi regime
obliged. However, as the results have established, the judge's ver-
dict made no difference to the verdict of America's electorate. De-
fence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was to become the first major
casualty of Bush's war in Iraq. within 24 hours of the Democrats
electoral sweep.
death sentence was being read in Iraq, another old political enemy
of previous and current Republican administrations in Washington,
Ortega. was commanding the lead in Nicaragua's presidential
poll. His Sandinistas revolutionary regime had fallen victim under
Ronald Reagan's illegal 'Contra'-fundcd war (remember Colonel
Ollie North?) in a cold war atmosphere.
Now he is back at the helmh minus the old passionate Marxist
rhetoric but with a promise to pursue new approaches in a funda-
mentally changed international environment. Even as Nicaraguans
were voting, the Bush administration was signalling its warning of
likely cessation of aid to a new administration in Managua, because
of a feared Ortega-Hugo Chavcz alliance.
Let's hope that the Democrats' control of
Congress influences a change from hawkish political
posturings to matured and realistic responses to the needs of
the Latin American-Caribbean region an approach in which
CARICOM, our small economic integration movement, not
without sone influence of its own, can well play a useful role.

this week. trying to scare away
those slack cats by imitating
the mating calls cats make.
Some of the staff thought
it was funny but the slack

lurking around some place
nearby, apparently didn't
think so.
And when I briefly stepped
out of my office that night, one
of those slack cats darted right
inside and hid under a desk to
wait until I returned.

sions of the international report.
Having read several man-on-
the-street interviews in the
newspapers, it seems that even
the ordinary folks in the soci-
ety also have the impression
that corruption was on the in-
crease in the government.
So it is advisable that the
government may want to take a
cold, unemotional review and
decide how it can change that
perception, otherwise the 2007
report could place the country
in the category among the most
corrupt in the world.
In a week when corruption
dominated the news, we also
saw plea agreements in a Miami
court from several U.S.-based
businessmen who pleaded
guilty to conspiracy, wire fraud,
bank fraud and money launder-
ing charges relating to the theft
of millions of dollars from the
people of Trinidad and Tobago
during the construction of the
country's Piarco International
Airport, under a former Basdeo
Panday government.
Those foreigners, who were
also facing corrii3pti- Cl,,1 i"

nated giver; he action in the
U.S. court, now have yepay
millions of dollars they stole,
through inflated contracts and

paper companies, to the people
of Trinidad and Tobago.
In exchange for not facing
charges in the Trinidad court,
they are also cooperating with
the Trinidad police in giving in-
formation on netting others
who may have profited from
corrupt deals.
One of the main players in
the U.S., Eduardo Hillman-
Waller, facing a lengthy jail sen-
tence, was spilling the beans
last week on a so-called big fish
in Trinidad who facilitated the
corrupt deals.
Hillman-Waller and Raul
Gutierrez Jr also admitted in
court that they conspired with
Trinidadian businessmen Steve
Ferguson and Ish Galbaransingh
to corrupt the competitive bid-
ding process for the construc-
tion of the airport while solic-
iting and receiving payoffs from
contractors and sub-contractors

Galbaransingh, former financiers
of Panday's political party, are
also facing half a dozen charges
in the local courts for alleged

millions of dollars from taxpay-
ers through the airport project.
Several former government
ministers, including former Prime
Minister Panday and his wife
Oma, are also before the court for
various offences related to the
airport project.
And while the current gov-
ernment may be tempted to heap
scorn on Panday's former admin-
istration during the time of the
construction of the airport, the
Patrick Manning regime has also
seen two of its senior politicians,
including the party chairman
Franklyn Khan, who was forced
to step down from that office

And the current ruling
party which faced major allega-
tions of endemic corruption in
previous incarnations seems not
to have learnt its lessons.
In fact. it was that over-
whelming feeling of corruption
which eventually ended the 30-
year reign of the PNM in 1986.
Although Prime Minister
Patrick Manning said early in
the term of the government that
he will not tolerate any corrup-
tion from among his ministers
and public officials, there's an
overwhelming feeling that all is
not above board with contracts
that are being handed out to
some people, literally on a sil-
ver platter and the self-indul-
gence of some of his politicians.
Corruption scandals were
also identified as some of the
main factors that led to last
week's collapse of power of the
Republican Party in the U.S.
mid-term elections when they
lost their majorities in the U.S.
House and Senate. now con-
trolled by the Democrats.
A CNN exit poll showed
that 41 per cent of voters cited
corruption as their top concern,
compared to 36 per cent for
Karl Rove. President Bush's
top political adviser, admitted
as well that corruption played
a bigger role in the tfiid-term
elections than he expected.
It goes to show that ordi-
nary people all over the world
are becoming less tolerant of
corruption or even the percep-
tion of corruption.
So, instead of criticizing
the Corruption Index report,

U.S. mid-term elections

and the Caribbean

(The writer is a business
executive and former
Caribbean diplomat)
IN MID-TERM elections for
the U.S. Congress, the
American electorate achieved
what several governments
around the world could not.
They registered their intense
unease with the U.S.
government's war in Iraq and
caused the resignation of De-
fence Secretary, Donald
Rumsfeld. who symbolized his
government's Iraq policy.
Caribbean governments are
among those who were un-
happy with the U.S. war in
Iraq. They regarded it as lack-
ing in UN Security Council
support and indicative of a
readiness by the U.S. govern-
ment to behave as a bully.
Like many others around
the world. Caribbean govern-
ments would have quietly wel-
comed the Republican Party's
defeat and Mr. Rumsfeld's de-
parture in the hope that U.S.
foreign policy particularly the
doctrine of pre-emptive strikes
and unilateral action would be
curbed in favour of greater con-
sensus building in the UN Se-
curity Council.
In the same week that the
George W. Bush administration
received what the U.S. President
himself described as a "thump-
ing" in the U.S. mid-term elec-
tions, two other hemispheric
events occurred which would
underscore the importance of
the U.S. re-thinking its relation-
ship with its Latin American
and Caribbean neighbours.
The first was the election
of Daniel Ortega, a former
Marxist revolutionary who
fought U.S.-backed insurgents
in the 1980s, as the President of
Nicaragua. The second was yet
another vote in the United Na-
tions General Assembly calling
for an end to the U.S. embargo
against Cuba.

Ortega won the presidency
in Nicaragua in spite of interfer-
ence by U.S. officials to try to
thwart his victory.
Paul Trivelli, the U.S. am-
bassador to Nicaragua, U.S.
Commerce Secretary Carlos
Gutierrez and Republican Con-
gressman Dan Burton warned

the Nicaraguan people not to
vote for Ortega. Burton went as
far as to say that foreign aid
would be cut off if Ortega was
It should be noted that
Venezuela's President Hugo
Chavez also intervened in the
Nicaraguan elections by offering
cheap oil and strongly advocat-
ing Ortega's election.
Since the results of the Nica-
raguan election, U.S. Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice, is
reported to have said that the
United States would respect the
decision of the Nicaraguan
people and see what policies the
government follows before mak-
ing decisions.about future rela-
tions. :'
Mr. Ortega would be hard
pressed to institute policies that
would legitimately offend the
U.S. Since the 1990s, successive
Nicaraguan governments have

sold more than 300 state-owned
enterprises, liberalized its mar
kets and entered a free trade ar-
rangement with ll other Central
American nations and the U.S.
Not unlike Mr. Bush's
present dilemma in which the
U.S. Congress is dominated by
the opposition Democratic
Party. Mr. Ortega's National
Assembly is divided between
four parties two of them con-
servatives with which he must
make compromises.
This is all to the good.
Both the U.S. and Nicaraguan
administrations will have to
temper their ambitions and
work within the constraints
they face.
On Cuba. the United Na-
tions General Assembly again
voted by 183 to 4 for an end to
the U.S. embargo.
But for the U.S., Cuba is a
different kettle of fish. U.S.
policy in Cuba is still too
closely tied to the fortunes of
both the Republican and Demo-
cratic parties in domestic elec-
tions for any radical change to
take place soon. The votes of
the anti-Castro, Cuban-Ameri-
can community and lobby re-
main influential.
Nonetheless, there can be
no doubt in the minds of
policy makers in the U.S.
that the global community -
and the Caribbean countries
especially want to see the
normalisation of relations
between the U.S. and Cuba.
But, while Caribbean coun-
tries may quietly rejoice over
the legislative constraints that
have been placed on the Bush
administration's foreign policies
particularly in Iraq, there are
policies of the Democratic Party
which should give rise to con-
cern within the region.
The Democrats will now
head many of the important
committees in the House and
Senate. Many Democratic rep-
resentatives are hostile to Free

Trade Agreements, regarding
them as threats to U.S. jobs.
They are also opposed to
outsourcing of services like call
centres and back-room accoun-
tancy to countries that could
provide such services much
cheaper than within the U.S.
Recently, Republican repre-
sentatives in the Senate inserted
language in this year's State De-
partment spending bill that
would bar the Organisation for
Economic Cooperation and De-
velopment (OECD) from using
the U.S. taxpayer contribution
for "activities or projects ... de-
signed to hinder the flow of
capital and jobs from high-tax
jurisdictions to low-tax jurisdic-
tions or to infringe on the so\v-
ereign right of jurisdictions to
determine their own domestic
It will be recalled that the

OECD's 'Harmful Tax Compe-
tition Initiative' had the backing
of President Bill Clinton's
Democratic Administration, and
adversely affected the financial
services sectors of several Car-
ibbean countries.
Passage of this appropria-
tions bill is pending Congres-
sional approval, and it is left to
be seen how a Congress, in
which the Democratic Party has
the majority, will vote.
Further, the Caribbean is
yet to negotiate a Free Trade
Agreement with the U.S.
Caught in the failed negotiations
for a Free Trade of the Ameri-
cas Agreement (ITAA) and pre-
occupied with its current nego-
tiations with the European
Union (EU) over Economic Part-
nership Agreements (EPA), the
Caribbean has not seriously fo-
cussed on a free trade arrange-

ment with the U.S.
Now, time may be run-
ning out to get negotiations
for such an agreement firmly
under way with a U.S. ad-
ministration favourably dis-
posed to free trade.
So. while the time is propi-
tious for the U.S. to begin to re-
think its policies toward its
close neighbours in Latin
America and the Caribbean to
make its relationship with them
more sympathetic and secure, it
is also in the interest of Carib-
bean countries to intensify their
lobbying work in the U.S.
A meeting a few weeks
ago of senior trade officials
from the Caribbean Commu-
nity (CARICOM) and the Of-
fice of the United States
Trade Representative to re-
vive a dormant CARICOM-
United States Trade and In-
vestment Council was a good
start. But, more is needed

The uncertainty

of our times

By Watson Denis

WE LIVE in uncertain times.
There are no guarantees.
One of the things that
characterises the uncertainty
of our times is elections the
foundation of liberal democ-
racy. Indeed, since the start
of the new millennium, the
results of elections in the
Western hemisphere have
demonstrated the uncertainty
of everyday life.
To the great astonishment
of many, there has been elec-
toral uncertainty in the United
States of America (USA). a
country hitherto known for
organising indisputable elec-
tions. At the end of the Novem-

The Greater

Caribbean This Week

ber 2000 polling day neither of
the two candidates, as was cus-
tomary, obtained a majority in
the polls. And the press re-
ported irregularities in the elec-
toral process in the State of
Florida. The world held its
breath. The uncertainty lasted
more than two months. The
case was taken to the courts. Fi-
nally, it was the United States
Supreme Court that ruled in
favour of one of the candidates.
The 2004 presidential

elections did not involve the
same level of uncertainty as
those of 2000. Nevertheless,
at the end of the regular
polling day, there was still
doubt in the State of Ohio.
Eventually, the victor of the
elections was declared after a
particularly meticl ous tally
in that State. Even today,

From page eight
elections in two U.S. States are uncertain.
The last presidential and legislative elections in the USA are
not the only case indicative of the state of uncertainty in which we
live. Recently, the results of the elections held in Costa Rica, Mexico
and Brazil have provided clear indications of the prevailing state of
Take the case of Costa Rica. A former President of the Repub-
lic, and furthermore a Nobel Peace Prize winner, entered the presi-
dential race. It was felt that his victory was assured. Opinion polls
gave him a 20% majority over his closest opponent. Ultimately, he
won by a margin of almost 1% over his rival.
Let's look at one more example. In Brazil, some felt that Presi-
dent Lula da Silva would win the elections from the first round.
Once again this was not the case. Electors subjected him to a sec-
ond round, which he won hands down.
Uncertainty is a part of our everyday lives. The elections re-
ferred to here are merely symptomatic of the uncertain times in
which we live. Other areas of our daily existence could just as well
illustrate this state of affairs.
The notion of uncertainty was ignored for a long time. It now
occupies a more important place in our actions and our vision of
the world. The Irish playwright Samuel B. Beckett, master of the
Theatre of the Absurd along with Eugene lonesco, was perhaps the
first, in 1949. to cause us to reflect on the uncertain in his masterly
work Waiting for Godot. As a rule, the characters in Beckett's plays
are plagued by the uncertain. For example. Godot is the mythical
figure who is expected, who has announced his arrival, whom ev-
eryone awaits... incessantly, and who. ultimately does not come.
And the play ends with the bitter taste of the unknown, indeed of
the uncertain. At the same time, it shows us that the uncertain is a
reality like any other. Through this work. Beckett seeks to pro-
pose an alternative to Cartesian logic.
This idea of uncertainty as a tangible reality has come a long
way. In some academic circles today. it is one of the pillars of
Postmodernism. the trend of thought following on the heels of Mod-
ernism. Considering that Modernity, supporting the idea of con-
tinuous progress and civilisation, supremely created, predominant
in time and space, has erected the frame of the present world on
the Cartesian notion of logic. Postmoderists have countered this
with a view of the uncertain as a new logic, hitherto discarded as
being banal and a notion belonging to persons or communities with-
out a history.
Thereafter, everything that had been acknowledged was chal-
lenged. That represented the demise of (modern) Metaphysics. de-
fined as seeking objectivity and truth. Reality in itself does not ex-
ist: there are merely representations of it.
Postmodernism has given rise to a very strong and novel histo-
riography that is more integrative and humanising and built on rep-
resentations. Groups of women. Black communities, immigrants,
Latinos and even subordinated countries have begun to discover their
memory, as well as a new historical identity and have even become
protagonists of history.
Does this mean that humanity has entered a new era of
history? From the dominant and universalist modernism to a
postmodernism representative of all. Up to now,
Postmodernism has not replaced Modernity. Both trends are
evolving side by side. This will continue for a long time. Once
uncertainty remains a sign of our times, both in elections and
everyday life, it will always have need of one movement that
will ignore its existence and another that will accept it.

The lynching of

Saddam Hussein

doomed man, Saddam
Hussein played with the no-
tion of a last-minute
reprieve. "He's told us many
times that we won't be able
to [avoid a death sentence in
his trial]," said Khalil al-
Dulaimi, one of his lawyers,
in June. "He knows that the

... 7

sentence has been issued
from Washington." But at that
point he was still indulging
in the fantasy that this was
part of an American plan to
restore him to power. "He'll
be the last resort; they'll
have to knock on his door,"
said Dulaimi. "The United
States will use this sentence
to pressure Saddam to save it
from this mess."
By July, however, Saddam
seems to have accepted the fact
that he was going to be killed,
for he asked the court that he
be shot by a firing squad, as is
the right of a military man, and
not hanged like a common
criminal. More fantasy, since
Saddam never served as a regu-
lar soldier.
On Sunday, the sentence of
death by hanging was pro-
nounced on Saddam and two of
his fellow defendants. He re-
sponded with a clearly re-

hearsed tirade "Long live Iraq!
Long live the Iraqi people!
Down with the traitors!" and
then left the courtroom with a
little smile playing on his face,
as if he had won. Which he had,
within the narrow confines of
what remains possible for him.
Unless the second trial that
is now underway on other
charges takes priority (which is
not yet clear), it will take only
ten to twenty days for an ap-
peal to be considered by a panel
of nine judges. and then the
death sentence must be carried
out within thirty days. But
Saddam still wins, because in
the eyes of most Sunni Arabs in
Iraq, and of manyl elsewhere, lhe
dies a marlyr to the cause of
Arab nationalism. His sons are
dead, his country is in ruins, and
he will die at the end of a rope
- but he defied the West and he
kept his dignity, so he dies a
He is not a hero. and Iraq
would be a better place if he had
never been born. In any prop-
crly constituted international
court. he would have been
found guilty of the same charges
he faced in Iraq. But in an in-
ternational court, there would
have been due process of law.
and the Iraqi government could
not have replaced judges who
wanted to respect the rights of
the defendants, and the defence
lawyers would not have been
murdered, and as a result the
trial would have had some
credibility. The trial in Iraq did

There was one obvious rea-
son why the United States did
not want Saddam to face the
same kind of impartial interna-
tional tribunal that tried
Serbia's President Slobodan
Milosevic and will soon try
Charles Taylor of Liberia. Such
a tribunal would have the right
to see documents and hear tes-
timony that would reveal the
extent of U.S. complicity in
Saddam's crimes in the earlier
phase of his career, when the
Reagan administration was sup-
porting Iraq in the 1980-88 war
against Iran. Hence the kangaroo
court in Baghdad. and all the
grotesqueries that ensued.
The first chief judge. Rizgar
Amin. resigned last January af-
ter government complaints that
he had failed to impose order in
his court (i.e. had allowed
Saddam to speak in his own de-
fence too often). Five weeks
later his successor. Sayeed al-
Hammashi, was removed when
it was discovered that he had
been a Baath Party
member. And the chief judge ap-
pointed to run the second trial.
Abdullah al-Amiri. was re-
moved in September for being
too sympathetic to Saddam.
Meanwhile. Saddam's de-
fence lawyers died like flies.
The first to go. Saadoun Janabi.
was "arrested" last year by men
claiming to be from the
Shia-controlled Interior
Ministry police and later found
dead in Sadr City. the Shia
stronghold in Baghdad. The sec-
ond, Adel al-Zubeidi, was shot

shortly afterwards, whereupon
another fled the country. And
the chief defence lawyer,
Khamis al-Obaidi, was abducted
in June. He, too, was arrested
by men in police uniforms, and
his body was found, with both
arms broken and eight bullet
wounds, dumped in the same
place in Sadr City.
After Obeidi's murder
Saddam's lawyers withdrew
from the trial entirely, demand-
ing that it be transferred outside
Iraq, and Saddam himself went
on hunger strike. He gave that
up after sixteen days of being
force-fed by tubes pushed up
his nostrils, and sat through the
remainder of his trials with no
legal representation other than a
court-appointed lawyer who re-
fused to be filmed or photo-
graphed. spoke through a micro-
phone that deliberately dis-
torted his voice, and was re-
jected as "an enemy of the
people" by Saddam.
Saddam has not had a fair
trial, although that, too,
would certainly have found
him guilty. He is the victim
of a state-sponsored lynching,
and so, for many people, he
will die a martyr. That will
make little difference in Iraq,
where people have more im-
mediate things to worry
about, but it certainly does
not help the cause of interna-
tional law.

Motivation and the workplace

Work, and thou wilt bless
the day
Even the toil be done;
They that work not, can
not pray,
Can not feel the sun
God is living, working still,
All things work and move;
Work or loose the power to
Loose the power to love
J. E. Carpenter




MOTIVATION is the basis for
all human behaviour nor-
mal as well as abnormal,
learned or instinctive. In fact,
the word "motive" comes
from Latin that means "to
move". The world has evolved
to become complex, dynamic
and learned behaviour has
far outstripped innate or in-
stinctive drives, especially in
humans. These behaviours
systematically employ, sus-
tain and increase productivity






at all levels.
An excellent definition of
motivation is, "What initiates,
sustains and intensifies a goal-
directed activity". It helps to
get an activity off the ground,
keep it going, even if success is
not always imminent or evident.
Motivation also increases drive
and, with time, gives it power.
It also gives direction to the ac-
tivity, helping to bring it to a
close with a sense of accom-
The problem in Guyana's
schools and workplaces is that
we are not consciously trained
to systematically provide incen-
tives to children, students and
workers. Teachers take the chil-
dren for granted. They must do
as told without the appropriate
feedback or reward for the de-
sired behaviour. On the other
hand, they are more likely to be
punished for not doing what is
told or is expected of them. At
the same time, the same par-
ents, teachers or supervisors
would welcome the attention or
reward for a job well done.
The motive to work at first
may be survival, to earn a liv-
ing. It may be to be with a spe-
cial group of individuals. Alter-
natively, the work becomes us
as we thus reveal and find our-
selves in it.
Every man's work, whether

it be literature or
lures or architectui
else, is always a po
self and the mor
conceal himself
clearly will his cha
in spite of him.

tention for it. Punishment is a
two-sided sword; it can end a
S.BUTLER behaviour but can also
strengthen it. Exaggerating sto-

There are a number of prin-
ciples or ideas that have been
developed to help us understand
human nature and how we can
increase and create better work-
ing atmosphere, help grow and
enrich children and human lives
and have greater work produc-
tivity. One such principle is the
Behaviourist which suggests
that rewards such as money,
praise,attention, etc., are pow-
erful motives to make people
feel good, increase efforts and
produce more. This method is
the most common and is fre-
quently employed by parents,
teachers and employers. How-
ever, it has been criticised be-
cause these rewards are external
and therefore not genuine and
lasting. Adults especially should
be conditioned to develop more
internal and longer lasting re-
wards. Notwithstanding this
criticism, this principle works.
B. F. Skinner, who ex-
pounded on this theory, sug-
gests that while punishment

ries can lead to chronic lying be-
cause they pay attention to the
stories of the fabricator of the
stories. With these rewards and
punishment we shape
behaviours of children at home
and in school and workers in the
workplace. A motor car parts
manufacturer had a sign that
read "Yesterday we made 1,390
parts". Someone scratched and
placed "1,400 for tomorrow".
People want to feel success.
Many workplaces, hotels, res-
taurants, have a visible place for
"worker of the month". This is
a highly motivating and conta-
gious device. It works.
Another example within the
Behaviourist School is the So-
cial Modelling. Here the parent,
teacher or employer sets the ex-
ample or becomes the role
model for others to emulate.
There are no external rewards as
such, but significant others such
as parents or teachers do it.
therefore it must be worthy of
emulation a type of internal
drive. Doing what role models
do is in itself rewarding.
A third principle of the
Behaviourist School stipulates
that behaviour and learned mo-
tives are a matter of habit. If a
certain behaviour is repeated of-
ten it becomes a habit a stimu-
lus and a response. We wake up
in the morning by the alarm
clock and move through the

routine of the day as a matter
of habit brushing of the teeth,
going to the bathroom. Just in
case we forget, the hunger drive
(internal stimulus) will cause us
to seek food (response); the
sight of the bathroom may
evoke a response to the call of
nature. Much of our daily rou-
tine at home or work is a mat-
ter of habit; some more stron-
ger than others. Driving to
work, checking in, eating lunch,
etc. are matters of habits.
The Humanist principle
places motives on a hierarchy
with hunger drive (physiologi-
cal drive) being the strongest
because it is a matter of sur-
vival. When we have attained
most or all of this we move to
the next that of providing
safety or security putting
money or food for a "rainy
day". Squirrels hide their nuts
and leopards, after eating their
fill, will drag the carcass to the
tree top or hide it among the
bushes. Humans have savings
account, box-hand, insurance or
even join labour unions to make
their jobs secure. The next level
is the need to belong, to be af-
filiated to have family, secu-
rity to a special group even to
join a street gang. We are moti-
vated to be in certain clubs,
groups, etc. even be seen in the
Iid id l


Part I
ever-present. The fourth is
where we seek self-esteem or
status with fancy cars, beauti-
ful homes, special clothing,
items that will get us attention.
Within this level is the need to
have power and control over
others. This is especially true in
the workplace as we seek to
climb the corporate ladder or
job status. This status and
power may have little or no
money but we crave it none the
less. Another, and perhaps
higher than the latter is that of
competency, the motive to be
efficient, to be skillful. We have
passed the stage to buy food or
to keep a job. This is when we
become vice-president or presi-
dent of the company.
The highest level in the
hierarchy is that of self-
actualisation. This level is
when we have satisfied all or
most of the other levels and
now work because of its own
sake. This is more intrinsic,
internal with self-
satisfaction. The money is
not crucial, the status from
the job is not as important, if
at all. This is when we give

With G$6M from charitable organisation

Mahaicony Hospital to

get modern mortuary

By Clifford Stanley to process and ship medical from out of the outmoded "ice

THE Mahaicony Develop-
ment Committee, an
organisation of United States-
based Guyanese, on Friday
completed the first phase of
a project to establish a mod-
ern mortuary for the
Mahaicony Hospital.
Head of the charitable group
Mr. Sharir Chan who is cur-
rently on a visit home, said that
construction of a building to
house the facility for the
Mahaicony Hospital, started in
the compound two weeks ago,
and was completed on Friday
The next and final phase of
the project, which is a G$6M
gift from the MDC, is the in-
stallation of two refrigerated
Units which are to arrive from
the United States in February
after which installation the fa-
cility will be commissioned for
The MDC, Chan
disclosed, is a member group of
the umbrella Guyana Medical
Relief organisation which do-
nated $2.3M in medical equip-
ment and supplies to five local
hospitals through the Ministry
of Health two weeks ago.
The GMR works
in partnership with the Direct
Relief International, a public
benefit, non-political
organisation also based at Santa
Barbara, which collaborates
with health service organizations

goods to hospitals, clinics and
dispensaries in 120 countries.
Chan said that the GMR had
been formed by Guyanese resi-
dent in the United States more
than 20 years ago in order to be
of some assistance to the coun-
try of their birth.
The motto of the GMR is
'We must never forget'.
Chan said that the GMR
estimates that it has donated
some US$33M to local hospi-
tals since its formation.
Members of the two
organizations are former resi-
dents of Mahaicony now living
in Santa Barbara California.
Chan made the announce-
ments on the status of the mor-
tuary project when Minister of
Health Dr. Leslie Ramsammy
visited the building in the com-
pound of the Mahaicony Hos-
pital to get a first-hand look at
how the contribution by over-
seas-based Guyanese was pro-
On site, Dr. Ramsammy ex-
pressed satisfaction with the
progress to date and hailed the
project as a wonderful example
of what could be achieved by
the Government and people of
Guyana working in partnership
with the Guyanese Diaspora.
The Minister stressed that
the mortuary was an important
part of the operations of any
hospital and noted that the gift
from the MDC would take the
Mahaicony Hospital operations

box" era into the modern age.
"I wish to say a special
thank you to the MDC and the
GMR for this great gesture of
support for the village and the
community and country of their
birth," he said.
Chan said that the idea for
the gift of a mortuary to the
Hospital came from an
MDC member whose mother
had died at home in
Mahaicony and who had been
thoroughly dissatisfied with
the lack of facilities at the
Mahaicony Hospital.
Funds had been available
since last year but the project
had been awaiting approval
from the Ministry of Health
which it received last month.
Chan said that local workers
had toiled day and night on the
building and had finished it in
ten days.
The blueprint for the mor-
tuary had been done by the Re-
gional Democratic Council of
Region 5 (Mahaica/Berbice)
through its Engineer Mr. Denis
The refrigerated units will
have the capacity to store four
bodies and will add to the na-
tional capability in the event of
an unexpected calamity or disas-

the MDC who were instrumen-
tal in the conceptualisation and
implementation of the project

THE Board of Governors of Bishops' High School has
lauded the outstanding academic and other achievements
of the school during the year.
In what the Board has termed "yet another year of out-
standing achievements", the school gained high percentage passes
of persons with five or more subjects with grades 1-3 at this
year's CXC examinations. The school's overall percentage passes
in this category is 95.9.
One hundred per cent passes were recorded in Agriculture
Science, Caribbean History, Biology, Electronic Data Processing
Management, Integrated Science, Home Management, Human
and Social Biology, Office Administration, Physics. Principles
of Business, Principles of Accounts, Social Studies, Spanish and
Technical Drawing. In Mathematics, the school recorded 92.5
per cent passes; English Language, 98.7 per cent; and Chemistry
95.7 per cent.
The school has also done well in the area of music. In the
Festival of Choirs for Georgetown schools, Bishops' High was
first with the test piece 'Lean on Me'. Its choir mistress, Ms.
Shelley Harris, received a plaque after being judged the best choir
mistress. Other schools which participated in the festival were
St. Stanislaus College, Queen's College and Queenstown
Cormnunity High.
With regard to debating, Bishops' team is now preparing
for the finals of the J.O.F. Debating Series scheduled for
next month, after defeating West Demerara Secondary. In
the finals, BHS will oppose the moot 'Globalisation is
impacting negatively on the development of Third World
The school has also reached the finals in the Ex-
Servicemen's Quiz Competitions for Secondary Schools
after beating Brickdam Secondary. The event to be held

President Bharrat Jagdeo interacts with scouts yesterday
shortly after he was inducted as Patron of the Guyana
Scouts Association.


is Scouts


President Bharrat Jagdeo was yesterday inducted as Patron of
the Guyana Scouts Association during a ceremony at its ground
on Woolford Avenue, Georgetown.
Among those at the induction ceremony were Chief Scout, Ron
Robinson, Chief Scout Commissioner, Zaida Joaquin and represen-
tatives from various scout groups across Guyana.
According to the Government Information Agency (GINA), Mr.
Jagdeo said his decision to participate in the scout movement was
born out of his admiration for the organisation.
"The Scout Association in Guyana and around the world has
over the years earned a reputation of preparing our young people
for leadership roles", he noted.
GINA said the President added that society depends on the
schools and families to inculcate basic values in youth but these
institutions sometimes fail.
He said the Scouts Association has played a significant role in
helping to fill the gap and. according to GINA, assured members of
his continued assistance and support as is deemed necessary.
It said the President added that he will consider facilitating the
organisation by permitting the use of the National Stadium for
Guyana's hosting of the 100th Scouts Jamboree in 2009.
Following the induction, President Jagdeo viewed a photographic
exhibition of local scouting activities spanning several years.
Guyana, GINA said, was the first country in South America
or the Caribbean to form a scouting association and currently
has a national membership of about 1,000.

Firemen at the scene yesterday after the blaze.

Sophia blaze

leaves six

SIX persons were left homeless yesterday afternoon when
fire of unknown origin destroyed a two-flat house at Lot
26 'A' Field Sophia, Greater Georgetown.
Home owner, Mr. Julius Brown, 32, told the Sunday
Chronicle yesterday that he was in the lower flat of the build-
ing cooking when he heard shouts of 'fire'.
The man said he ran out the building to see what was hap-
pening and saw thick smoke and fire billowing from his bed-
rooms in the top flat of the house.
Brown said he did not get a chance to save anything but
gathered up his children who were playing in the yard and ran
outside the premises. His wife was not at home at the time.
"I called the Guyana Fire Service (GFS) and they responded
promptly but were unable to save the building which was gut-
ted within minutes." he said.
The.GFS ranks, however, managed to contain the blaze and
were soaking the building next door when this newspaper ar-
rived on the scene.
At the same location. B13rown said he operated Spanky's
Wash Bay for the past \1o years. He could not say how the
fire started since the building does not receive electricity from
the Guyana Power and Light Company (GPl).
The grief-stricken man and his children were left only with
the clothes on Iheir backs.
Brown said lie has scores of relatives but was unable
to say yesterday where he would be staying. (Michel

' The Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) wishes to remind all stakeholders especially those directly involved in forestry operations, of the
following mandatory guidelines which are with immediate effect:

1. All Concession Holders who are in possession of State forest areas in excess of 8,047 ha (20,000 acres) must submit an Annual
Operational Plan (AOP) for the year 2007 to the GFC on or before November 30, 2007. This AOP must be satisfactorily
prepared in accordance with the GFC guidelines for the preparation ofAOP's. Companies that do not have an approvedAOP for t h e
year 2007 will not be allowed to harvest from their State forest areas, and other appropriate action will be taken against them, including
Sthe possible suspension and /or repossession ofthese State forest areas.

2. It is the responsibility of all concessionaires to ensure the following:

All employees are knowledgeable about the relevant GFC guidelines
All employees properly implement these guidelines in their respective areas) of responsibility.

1 These guideline include, but are not limited to:

Proper completion and timely submission of documentation (removal permits, transshipments, sawmill returns,
production registers etc.) Please note, that there is no such species as "mixed hardwood"
Strict compliance with the log tagging procedures. GFC emphasizes that any breach of this particular procedure will now be
severely dealt with, including the suspension of operations until the GFC is satisfied that the necessary mechanisms have been put in
place to ensure proper implementation of log tagging, as required by the GFC.
Submission of a Forest Management Plan (FMP) that has been prepared in accordance with the GFC guidelines for preparation of
FMP's, on or before March 31, 2007. This is applicable for all areas in excess of 8.047 ha (20,000 acres).and does not include those
companies that already have a GFC approved FMP for 2007.

It has been common practice for holders of State forest areas to justify non-compliance with the GFC procedures by blaming it on an untrained
work force. This "excuse" will no longer be accommodated by the GFC. The Government of Guyana is currently providing training in all
relevant areas through institutions such as the GFC, the Forestry Training Centre Inc.(FTCI), The Forest Products Marketing Council (FPMC),
The University ofGuyana (UG) and the Guyana School of Agriculture (GSA). Training sessions at these institutions are all provided at a highly
subsidized cost

The GFC, in collaboration with the FTCI and the FPMC has also held numerous outreach meetings at strategic locations countrywide to educate
all stakeholders, especially those directly involved in forest operations, on the following:

The Government of Guyana (GOG) and GFC requirements re sustainable utilization of the state forest areas.
The common breaches of the above mentioned guidelines.
The specific skills needed to address these breaches to the satisfaction of the GFC.
9 The institutions that provide the identified areas of training at highly subsidized costs.
The willingness of the GFC to coordinate delivery of the relevant training in a decentralized manner countrywide.

The GFC will therefore not allow the nonconformity of its guidelines to continue.


All saw millers and lumber yard operators must comply with the following existing procedures in 2007:

All forest produce must be confined to the specific location that has been licenced. Forest produce must not be stored on the
road and other Government reserves.
The location must allow for the proper display of forest produce to enable inspection of same by the GFC.
Forest produce must be segregated by species, dimensions and grade.
Records of incoming and outgoing produce must be kept to the satisfaction of the GFC and other Government agencies.
All forest produce entering the location must be "branded" by the GFC. In the event that the GFC officer is unaware of new
forest produce arriving on the location, it is the responsibility of the saw miller / lumber yard operator to inform the relevant GFC station
in a timely manner so that the necessary checks and "branding" can be done.
It is the responsibility of the saw miller / lumber yard operator to ensure that all forest produce entering the premises is obtained from a
GFC approved operation. As an example, request must be made to see a valid State forest concession or private property document,
and the relevant permit. The forest produce must have clearly visible log tags. Any forest produce not accounted for as outlined above,
may be subject to seizure.
All persons/companies engaged in the transport of forest produce, especially from the interior locations must first ensure that the
produce has been legally obtained (valid State forest area or private property document), and covered by the appropriate
documentation (e.g. removal permit, transshipment, log tags). Vehicles transporting forest produce that do not meet these requirements
are subject to seizure.

The GFC wishes to thank all stakeholders in advance for conformity with these guidelines, and we will continue to work in partnership with you
to further develop the forest sector o fGuyana.

loyal to


Best Graduating

student urges colleagues
VALEDICTORIAN of the University of Guyana's class of 2006,
Ms. Sharon Wilson has urged her colleagues to remain faith-
ful and loyal to Guyana and to use the knowledge they have
acquired to contribute to this country's development.
At the 40th Convocation exercise yesterday at the University's
Turkeyen campus. Wilson echoed remarks of Vice Chancellor, Dr.
James Rose who pointed to the necessity for the contribution of
young people as the "potential architects" for a better Guyana.
Dr. Rose also reminded the graduands that they have a moral
obligation towards the taxpayers of Guyana who would have high
expectations of them because of their investment in education
"Taxpayers will expect you to reciprocate." the Vice Chancel-
lor reiterated.
He urged the graduating class to always be guided by the "com-
pass of knowledge" as their actions have a global impact in a world
which is moving rapidly towards becoming a global village.
In her valedictory speech, Wilson who graduated with a
Bachelor's Degree in Education, said exposure to the University of
Guyana (UG) has forced her to recant her original critical stance of
the institution.
Alluding to the sacrifices that were made during her stud-
ies, she appealed to her colleagues to always cherish the fact
that they are graduates of UG because that will never change.



Noting the continued vandalism of equipment to obtain scrap metal and the continued high cost imposed on the
owners and the country as a whole, the Government will end the export of old (scrap) metal on December 31,
2006. No exports of old (scrap) metal, whether ferrous (iron) or non-ferrous, will be allowed from January 1,2007.

Exports will be continued until December 31, 2006 under tight inspection and supervision requiring strict
adherence to the law, so as to exclude any improperly acquired metal from export. Copies of the guidelines for
strict adherence to the law may be acquired from the Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce or the Office of
the Prime Minister.
2' "> -.-A.''

(1) Each dealer (buyer and seller of old/scrap metal, should be licensed
and every place of business where he does business (stores the
old/scrap metal) should be listed on his licence and be amended
promptly from time to time as should be. Each place of business
should carry one or more signs as stated in the Old Metal DealersAct,
(2) Old/Scrap metal is generated by the disposal of equipment and other
articles which were in use and at some time are considered to be no
longer of use. Dealers are under an obligation to maintain records
which can establish a paper trail back to the owner who disposed of it,
In this regard it would be advisable that dealers describe fully and in
detail each lot purchased, seek to bundle, tag and label items so as to
identify each lot of goods subsequently.
(3) The Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce will designate as
Engineers, suitable persons from companies where significant
quantities of old/scrap metal are generated, and from the description
of the scrap will direct one or more Engineers to inspect the scrap
before conversion, on stuffing containers under control of Customs, or
loading in bulk in ships under the control of Customs. The Dealer will
be required to present evidence as described in paragraph 2.
(4) Where the Dealer believes that it is convenient to change the form of
the goods, he must apply to the Minister for submitting his records of
goods to be altered. The Minister will arrange for one or more

designated Engineers .for this purpose) as may be required by the
nature of the goods, to aspect t the goods and records anm once they are
satisfied, to give permission for the conversion.
Permission to convert may be refused untii the owner at the time of
disposal can be established. The dealer will pay standard published
rates to GRA for the Customs Officer and to the Ministry for the
(5) Most of the export shipments are now by containers. Dealers in
anticipation of shipments can apply to the Minister from time to time to
pack containers under the supervision, in preparation for shipments
which may or may not yet be soecified. The Ministry will arrange for
Customs Officer and appropriate Engineers to supervise the stuffing of
the containers. Any old/scrap meal pre-packaged in bags, etc. must be
dumped for inspection and clearing before they could be containerised.
(6) Dealers on arranging shipments will apply to the Ministry for an export
licence. Containers which h been stuffed and sealed under
supervision of the Customs and gineers and for which the Customs is
satisfied that the seals have not L an tan ,oared with, shall be cleared for
shipment directly on inspection E .d sai!siaction that the seals have not
been tampered with. Where the shipment is to be in bulk the Minister
would arrange for Customs an relevant Engineers to be present to
inspect the goods as they are I .ght to the and loaded unto the ship.
Any item may be challenged by Cust :,is or any of the Engini-. s. On
every such challenge the Deale lust c .ionstrate the paper trail back
to the !nst owner who disposed e ,g."

Henin-Hardenne to meet Mauresmo ... Frompage31

her a chance to defend her title.

Henin-Hardenne, who returned to action this week following a
two-month lay-off with a calf injury, took the game to Sharapova
from the off, forcing her opponent into a series of uncharacteristic
errors with her pin-point backhand and astute serving.
She won the opening game with a cleverly disguised drop
shot and then broke serve after working her opponent around
the court with some perfectly placed ground strokes.
The Belgian manufactured three break points in the sixth with
a wonderful passing shot down the line and went 5-1 up when
Sharapova double-faulted.

Sharapova broke back in the seventh but Henin-Hardenne
stayed focused and broke again to take the set after a volley error.
The Russian tried to battle her way back into the match with
her trademark lashing forehands but Henin-Hardenne made her work
for every point and held her serve with authority.
It was level pegging until the Belgian turned the screw in the
eighth game of the second set to earn herself five break points and
go 5-3 up.
Sharapova refused to give up without a fight however and
broke back when her opponent was serving for the match but
Henin-Hardenne kept her nerve to win the tie-break 7-5 and
gain some measure of revenge for her defeat in the final of
the U.S. Open.

(Reuters) America's Bert
Patenaude has belatedly
been recognized as the first
scorer of a World Cup hat-
trick after world soccer's gov-
erning body FIFA cleared up
a 76-year-old error.
FIFA announced on Friday
that Patenaude was the first man
to score three goals in a World
Cup match when he inspired the
United States to a 3-0 win over
Paraguay during the inaugural
1930 tournament in Uruguay.
Patenaude's second goal
was originally attributed to his
team mate Tom Florie but FIFA
said it had accepted evidence
from "various historians and
football fans" and received con-
firmation from the U.S. Soccer
Federation that Patenaude
scored all three goals.
Argentina's Guillermo
Stabile had originally been
recognized by FIFA as the first
World Cup hat-trick scorer,
but his three goals during a 6-3
victory over Mexico came two
days after Patenaude's feal.
Patenaudc scored a total of
six goals in just four appear-
ances for the U.S., and was in-
ducted into his country's na-
,ional soccer hall of lame in
1071. He died three years later.
FIFA confirmed a further
World Cup hat-trick on Fri-
day, \ith Czechoslovakia's

clared thie scorer of all his

Kenya draw

first blood in

31 series with


- Home team Kenya drew
first blood in their three-
match One-day International
series with Bermuda, when
they posted a 79-run win in
the first match yesterday at
the Mombasa Sports Club.
Choosing to bat. Kenya,
coached by former Guyana cap-
tain and West Indies off-spin
all-rounder Roger Harper, set
Bermuda 225 for victory and
successfully defended the tar-
get, dismissing the visitors for
149 in 45 overs.
The Bermudians, under the
guidance of former Trinidad &
Tobago captain and West Indies
batsman Gus Logie, again failed
to ease worries that they will be
a competitive force against their
fellow ICC Associate qualifiers
for the 2007 ICC World Cup in
the Caribbean.
Kwame Tucker's 34 from
61 balls that included half-
dozen boundaries was the top
score, and Ryan Steede hit
one four and two sixes in a
late flourish of 20 from 37
Left-arm spin bowler Hiren
Varaiya was the most success-
ful bowler for Kenya, collecting
three wickets for 29 runs from
10 overs, and Jimmy Kamande
took two for 38 from 10 overs.
Several Kenyan batsmen
got starts, but failed to carry
on. after the home team recov-
ered from a sluggish start.
David Obuya led the way
with 44 from 75 balls that con-
tained four fours, and skipper
Steve Tikolo struck two fours
and one six in a crucial 43 off
60 halls.
Nehemiah Odhiambo got 31

unbroken for the ninth wicket
with Peter Ongondo, who was
not out on 26.
Saleem Mukuddem led
Bermuda's bowling with
three for 45 from 10 overs.
The Bermudians have very
little time to recover, since the
second ODI will be contested
today at the same venue.
Kenya reached the semifi-
nals of the 2003 ICC World Cup
that they jointly hosted with
South Africa and Zimbabwe,
but Bermuda are making their
first appearance at the global
quadrennial challenge.
Kenya have been drawn
with England, New Zealand, and


Canada in Group-C which will
be contested in St Lucia.
Bermuda have been placed
in Group-B alongside India, Sri
Lanka. and Bangladesh to be
staged in Trinidad.
Both Kenya and Bermuda
have endured tumultuous times
among and between national ad-
ministrators and players, since
their crowning achievements.
The two teams are also
coming off a rain-affected
draw in their four-day ICC
Intercontinental Cup match
which ended on Wednesday.

LONDON, England (Reuters)
- Argentina handed England
their seventh straight rugby
defeat when they beat the
world champions 25-18 for
their first victory at
Twickenham yesterday.
England produced an error-
strewn display to crank up the
pressure on coach Andy
Robinson, while the Pumas will
relish a famous win to back their
campaign for inclusion in the
Tri or Six-Nations.

England were booed off by
their own fans after an abject
display at Twickenham that
made a mockery of their
world champion status.
Substitute flyhalf Federico
Todeschini scored 22 points for
the visitors, who were well
worth their famous win.
Tries by wing Paul Sackey
and fullback lain Balshaw to one
by Todeschini were not enough
for England, who constantly
gave away possession and pen-
"Yes, it's a very low time for
English rugby," captain Martin
Corry told Sky TV after En-
gland matched their worst run
for 34 years.
"Awful was probably an
understatement, everyone is ab-
solutely devastated and that's
how we should be."
Pumas scrumhalf and cap-
tain Agustin Pichol, nman-of-the-
match in his first game of the
season, said he had told his
players before the game: "Let's

show the world we are here."
and they did not disappoint

Robinson, who survived a
cull of his assistant coaches in
April, refused to be pressed
on his own future. "We will
be having discussions, the
normal debriefing with senior
management, but I will be pre-
paring the team for South Af-
rica," he told a news confer-
"I remain in charge of the
team and no decisions are being
made on that."
England meet South Af-
rica in tests at Twickenham

Indies are eyeing a place in
the Final of the Hong Kong
Sixes competition for the sec-

West Indies, under the lead-
ership of Sylvester Joseph. will
have to overcome South Africa
in a virtual semifinal in today's
final day to reach the Champi-
onship match in the 10-year-old
international competition.
West Indies. previous win-
ners of the competition 10 years
ago and beaten finalists last
year, won all but one of the
three matches they played on
the opening day.
They won by virtue of los-
ing fewer wickets in their tied
opening match against Australia.
suffered a 17-run defeat in their
second group match against
holders India. before easily roll-
ing over hosts Hong Kong by 13
runs in their first match in the
second round.
In their first match. West
Indies sent Australia in to bat
and were set a target of 92 from
their allocation of five overs.
Before retiring not out,
Marion Samuels. fresh from the
ICC Champions Trophy in In-
dia. where West Indies lost the
Final to World champions Aus-
tralia, hit one four and five sixes
in 35 from seven balls to keep
the Caribbean side apace of the
scoring rate.
Samuels put on 50 for the
first wicket with Carlton Baugh.
Jr., who scored 13, and when his
retirement came, Esaun Crandon
picked up where he left off to
belt two fours and three sixes in
31 off 11 balls.
Earlier, Joseph had shaken
Australia up with a hat-trick.
when he removed the Aussies'


Marion Samuels
captain David Bandy for two.
Tim Nielsen for a duck, and
John Hastings for I1 to leave
his opponents scrambling at 52
for four.
Chris Sampson kept up
Aussie appearances with half-
dozen sixes in the top score of
50 not out off 11 balls and
added 39 for the last wicket
with Matthew Gale.
West Indies' second pool
match was a repeat of the Final
last year with a few of the same
participants on the Indian side
helping them to a similar result.

Sent in to bat, India set West
Indies 113 to win from their al-
location of five overs, and the
Caribbean side fell short on 95
for one.
West Indies' bid for a sec-
ond straight victory suffered a
setback, when all-rounder
Tonito Willett was injured when
fielding and did not bat.
Baugh hit five sixes in 34
off 10 balls, and Samuels struck
two fours and four sixes in 32
from six balls before they both
retired not out.
The rest of the West Indies'
batting could not get them to the
target, although Joseph clob-
bered one four and two sixes in
20 not out off nine overs.
Reetinder Sodhi and
Hrishikesh Kanitkar both retired
not out on 32, and captain
Robin Singh, who played first-
class cricket for Trinidad & To-
bago, gathered 29 not out from
nine balls to set the Indian in-
nings on fire.
Having qualified for the So-
bers Group of the second round.
West Indies had little trouble
successfully defending a target

score of 88 against Hong Kong.
Joseph claimed the early
wicket of Munir Dar caught for
seven in the second over. and
Crandon pinched the wicket of
Rahul Sharma in the closing
stages to slow the hosts down,
after opener Najeeb Amar had
given them hope with four fours
and two sixes in 33 off 11 balls
before he retired not out.
Samuels again, played a key
role when West Indies bated.
He smashed two fours and three
sixes in 31 from nine balls and
retired not out for the third
straight game.
Joseph brought things to a
boil for West Indies with two
fours and three sixes of his own
in 29 off nine bails.
The competition con-
cludes today with the winners
of the two second round
groups named after Sir

LONDON, England (Reuters) Striker Louis Saha re-
stored Manchester United's three-point lead in the Pre-
mier League football yesterday, scoring in a 1-0 win at
Blackburn Rovers after champions Chelsea trounced
Watford 4-0.
With United playing later in the evening kick-off, Chelsea
had briefly joined them on 28 points after Ivorian striker Didicr

Lall, who featured in a 42-run
first-wicket partnership with
Joseph that lasted 14 overs, of-

Nagamootoo was assisted
by fellow leg-spinner Sewnarine
Chattergoon with two for 22,
while there was a wicket each
for off-spinner Royston
Crandon, Imran Jaferally and
Andre Percival.
Earlier, Berbice, having been
inserted to take first strike in a
match cut short by 10 overs per
side as a result of the effects of
the heavy rain the previous day
that caused severe seepages onto
the pitch, thus only allowing
play to get cracking from 11:30

through Pooran. who was in-

hander. first added 52 for the
sixth wicket in 11 overs with
left-hander Assad Fudadin 39
while posting a further 62 for

the seventh wicket with
Nagamootoo in 10 overs, after
arriving at the crease with his
team tottering on 54 for five in
the 18th over.
Fast bowler Trevon
Garraway gave Essequibo a
dream start, trapping West
Indies opener Chattergoon for a
duck, first ball, before sending
back Chattergoon's opening
partner Maxie De Jonge 4 in
identical fashion.
Crandon 13 was then caught
behind by wicketkeeper Wayne
Osbourne, flashing at a delivery
from Thomas, who shared the
new ball with Garraway to
leave the home team in the 6th
over, on 31 for three.
More trouble was in store
for the Berbicians when the
much-touted Gajanand Singh (8)
in the 14th over, was well
caught by Robert Moore at
midwicket off leg-spinner
Ramesh Narine and when
Narine three overs later, again
got into the act this time pro-
ducing a delivery that bounced
on skipper Andre Percival (3)

MADRID, Spain (Reuters) -
Justine Henin-Hardenne
clinched the year-end num-

the final of the WTA Cham-
pionships when she ended
Maria Sharapova's 19-match
winning streak with a 6-2, 7-
6 victory over the Russian
The Belgian will meet de-
fending champion Amelie
Mauresmo, who earned her
place in today's final with an
enthralling 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 victory
over Kim Clijsters.
Mauresmo beat Henin-
Hardenne to win both the Aus-
'tralian Open and Wimbledon
this year and enjoys a 6-5 ad-
vantage in head-to-heads after
her victory in Friday's round-
robin match.
Three-time French Open
champion Henin-Hardenne, who
reached the final of all four grand
slams this year, produced a
wonderful display full of guile
and determination to overcome
Sharapova and secure her place
in a first Championships final.
The 19-year-old Russian,
who had not dropped a set on
the way to the semi-finals,
looked bemused as the Bel-
gian returned everything she
could throw at her and was
never able to get into her
"I feel very happy with the
way I coped with the pressure
and with the aggressive way I
played," Henin-Hardenne said.
"I loved the match and felt
confident throughout and I
thought she (Sharapova) was
nervous. I took my chances.
"I'm number one now but
my season is not over yet and I
want to win these Champion-
Sharapova said she had
been unable to match the heights
of her performances in previous

winner. "There are going to

up against someone like

Justine it is not easy."
Mauresmo, who went into
the Championships as the top-
ranked woman in the world, got
the better of double winner
Clijsters in a titanic struggle at
the Madrid Arena.
The Frenchwoman won the
first set convincingly but the
battling Clijsters hit back to take
the second.
There was nothing to
separate the two players until
Mauresmo got the crucial break
in the deciding set to go 5-3 up
after a failed line-call challenge
from Clijsters and then served
out for victory to give

Dashing openers are ten-a-

she says. Here's how to spot your man...
ID him
You need to be ultra -alert to the clues that your rapport is
more sexual spark than friendship fizz. "You have a dormant de-
sire to be with him if you: feel a twinge of jealousy when he gets a
new girlfriend: remember all the compliments he's paid you: have
more than a casual interest in his love life; see him one-on-one regu-
larly, as well as in a group; and get annoyed if he turns up to meet
you looking like he hasn't made an effort."

Rejection-proof it
You know you like him. but does he like you? "You're onto a
no-hoper if he burps in your company, talks about Nia Long's as-
sets and harps about the girl he fancies at work. Neon signs that he
in Trust fancies you are: he seems nervous when you sit close to him but
doesn't move away: he calls you after he's had a rubbish date: and
he buys you the perfect birthday present, then insists it's 'noth-
ing' (remember the cameo brooch Ross bought for Rachel in
Friends?). If in doubt, get an attached (and thus impartial) mutual
male friend to do some discreet digging. Promise him a pint or a
bottle of his favourite drink in return for his ldip il.n i
Seal the deal
: Now you know he's up for it. negotiate the tricky gear change
to take you from buddies to bed mates. "Men are programmed to
understand what football pundits say, not what women say." Thus,
you can throw him glaringly obvious hints 'til the cows come home.
"He'll be unlikely to make the first move. as men favour easy op-
lions like doing nothing. You're going to have to take that risk.
S Say, 'You and I have been faffing about for too long. Let's go out
tonight and treat it as a date. At the end of it. try to kiss nmc.
That's one hint he can't miss!

cent of women have faked a sudden

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Il-
lustrations in picture books
go beyond entertaining chil-
dren and teach them how to
navigate the world, according
to a study published by the
American Psychological Asso-
ciation last week.
Australian researcher
Gabrielle Simcock from the Uni-
versity of Queensland and
American scientist Judy
DeLoache from the University
of Virginia tested 132 children
younger than 30 months old to
see if they could mimic actions
depicted in picture books.
The results varied according
to the children's ages and
whether a photograph or draw-
ing was used, but most children

could complete the actions they
had seen on the pages.
"This common form of in-
teraction that takes place very
early in children's lives may
provide an important source of
information to them about the
world around them," Simcock
said in a statement.
Most parents in the United
States read to their toddlers
daily, the researchers said, but
until now studies have focused
on how parents use the books
to relate to their children.
In the first of the pair's ex-
periments, children were read a
book about building a rattle that
showed photographs of a tod-
dler putting a rubber ball in a
plastic jar and then attaching a

Holder is among a growing
number of religious leaders to
use holy hip-hop to reach
younger generations, melding
religion with the language, dress
and dance moves of the culture
that was born on the streets of
the Bronx about 30 years ago.
Holder, who moved from
Alabama to New York and the
Bronx's Trinity Episcopal
Church about five years ago,
readily admits he was no hip-
hop fan until two years ago.
"I used to think hip-hop
was hateful," he said. "But hip-
hip really is a culture. It is about
social change and justice. We're

here to promote the love and
strength you find in hip-hip, not
the hate, misogyny and crime."
The success of his
HipHopEMass services
prompted him to pull together
"The Hip Hop Prayer Book,"
with morning and evening
prayers, psalms, Bible stories -
in hip-hop language.
For example instead of the
23rd Psalm 'The Lord is my
shepherd', his flock says: 'The
Lord is all that, I need for noth-
ing, he allows me to chill'.
The CD, being released this
week, has links to pages in 'The
Hip Hop Prayer Book' as well
as moments from the service set
to music and some new songs.
"I don't rap or rhyme but
I can read from 'The Hip Hop
Prayer Book' and people can

had required same for
himself and mistress and
their children.
In its decision, the Full
Court, constituted by Chief
Justice, J. A. Luckhoo and Jus-
tice Miller, ruled on an appeal
from a Magistrate's Court un-
der the rent restriction, public
policy ordinance.
The magistrate had ruled in
favour of the respondent
Fernandes, but the Full Court
upset the ruling, deciding in the
interest of the adulterous hus-
According to the Full
Court, "A magistrate is not pre-
cluded by public policy from
granting an order for possession
of a dwelling house (which is
subject to the provisions of the
Rent Restriction Ordinance,
Chapter 186) to a husband liv-
ing in adultery and apart from
his wife and lawful children
where the husband requires the
dwelling house as a residence for
himself, his mistress and their
At the hearing, Attorney-at-
law. Mr. Clinton Wong ap-
peared for the Pereira while law-
yer Mr. C. Young represented
the respondent.
According to Mr. Luckhoo,
it was established to the satis-
faction of the magistrate that the
appellant's application for pos-
session was made bona fide and
that it was reasonable.
"It would appear, he said,
"that the magistrate would have
granted the appellant's applica-
tion for an order of possession
had he not considered that it
would be contrary to public
policy to do so as the applicant
is a married man living apart
from his wife and lawful children
and requires the premises, the
subject matter of the application
for residence for himself, his
mistress and their children.

The evidence established
that the appellant has been liv-
ing apart from his wife and
their nine children for the past
four years.
His wife and their children
resided in the appellant's prop-
erty, while the appellant, his
mistress and their five children
resided in a dwelling house
rented from some other person.
At the time the application
was filed, an order for posses-
sion had been made against him
in respect of the house in which
he was residing.
By order of the Court, he

was required to vacate the
house not later than July 1,
As a result, he purchased
the premises, the subject mat-
ter of the application, for use as
a dwelling. The respondent was
residing in those premises at the
time of the appellant's pur-
In his final remarks in the
judgment, Chief Justice
Luckhoo had said, "The appel-
lant has found himself in these
"He is obliged to give up
possession of the premises in
which he presently resides with

his natural born children and his
'He obviously cannot take
his natural born children to re-
side in the house in which his
wife is presently residing with
their nine children.
"The appellant nevertheless
desires to find a residence for his
natural born children who are no
doubt of tender years.
"If not legally obliged to do
so, the normal obligation is
dear. In such circumstances, it
could hardly be against public
policy for an order for possession
to be made in his favour despite
the fact that his adulterous
association with his mistress
will continue there," the Chief
Justice said.
He added, "It perhaps
should also be noted that there
is no evidence on the record of
the circumstances under which
the appellant ceased to reside
with his wife.
"We are of the opinion that
the magistrate erred in refusing
on the ground of public policy
to make the order for possession
applied for by the appellant,"
the Chief Justice disclosed.
He concluded: "The appeal
is allowed. The order of the
magistrate is set aside and an or-
der made for possession of the
premises, the subject matter of
the application, to be given to
the respondent not later than
July 1, 1961.

I KNOW for a fact that every
dentist at some time or the
other becomes annoyed with
their patients. Two things
that patients do that upset me
are when they attempt to
argue with me on aspects of
dentistry and when they
attempt to treat themselves
with antibiotics.
Now there are two basic
aspects to the control of
infection: prevention and
treatment. In both cases.
nonpharmacologic (not using
drugs) efforts are of
considerable importance. We all
know that in ancient times
people never took medication
yet they lived longer and
healthier than now. In
prevention, one must be
concerned with eliminating
those factors that lead to
infection: bacterial plaque, oral
debris, decayed teeth etc.
The incidence of post
surgical infections can be
reduced by proper wound
closure and the use of aseptic
(sterile) and atraumatic
(conservative) techniques. In
the treatment of infections, one
must provide indicated local
treatment (scraping. incision.
drainage etc.) and supportive
care (ensuring adequate rest.
nutrition and fluid intake).
Antibiotic is only a part of
the treatment for infections.
The other major par is lthe
removal of the cause of the

infection. It means, therefore,
that in order to solve the
problem of a dental abscess the
first is to decide if the condition
is acute or chronic. Acute
abscesses must be drained and!
or deinflammed before
instituting medication.
Someone who acquires a
swollen face with a painful area
as a result of a decayed tooth is
suffering from the first stage of
a paradontal abscess. Anti-
inflammatory and antibiotic
therapy should be prescribed for
at least five days. If an attempt
is made to extract the offending
tooth without first applying
this treatment, two things may
happen. The pus surrounding
the tooth may disseminate to
adjacent tissue or enter the
bloodstream, thus exacerbating
the situation. Secondly. due to
the acidity of the swollen
tissues the anesthetic may not
work sufficiently and so the
patient would have a very
painful extraction.
The need for antibiotic
prophylaxis to prevent subacute
bacterial endocarditis in patients
with rheumatic heart disease
who are to experience
procedures which are likely to
precipitate bacteria in the
bloodstream, is well known.
The recommended dosage for
most patients is 00,.000 units
of procaine penicillin C; nIxed
x\ith 200.)000) crystalline c(
administlerecd inlramusscularilh]

The Dentist Advises
Ii.!i : -f ]i ilB i]]

one hour prior to the dental
procedure and once daily for
two days following that.
A second aspect of
prophylactic antibiotic coverage
relates to the use of antibiotics
to prevent infections after any
dental operation. Studies showX
that apart from rheumatic heart
disease, as stated above, there is
no need of someone to take
antibiotics before having any
type of dental surgery. w whether
it is a simple extraction or
periodontal surgery. The dentist
must balance the infections he
prevents with antibiotics against
the infections lie causes with
antibiotics due to the post
operative alterations due to the
post operative alterations in the
normal flora of the nouth.
Most bacteria that cause
dental infections are within
the antibacterial spectra of
penicillin G, penicillin V.
phenethicillin. ampicillin.
erytlhromycinl tetracycline.
lincomycin, clindamycin and
cephalosporiin. Penicillin is
the safest ani ost )powNt rfull
antibiotic for se ere
infections: ho \ever, it should
not be abused. It should oiiih
be, used in se ler infections.

Finally, the 24 month and 30 month old children were shown

Libraries in the

sand reveal


academic past
By Nick Tattersall
TIMBUKTU, Mali (Reuters) Researchers in Timbuktu are
fighting to preserve tens of thousands of ancient texts which
they say prove Africa had a written history at least as old as
the European Renaissance.
Private and public libraries in the fabled Saharan town in Mali
have already collected 150,000 brittle manuscripts, some of them
from the 13th century, and local historians believe many more lie
buried under the sand.
The texts were stashed under mud homes and in desert caves
by proud Malian families whose successive generations feared they
would be stolen by Moroccan invaders, European explorers and
then French colonialists.
Written in ornate calligraphy, some were used to teach astrol-
ogy or mathematics, while others tell tales of social and business
life in Timbuktu during its 'Golden Age', when it was a seat of
learning in the 16th century.
"These manuscripts are about all the fields of human knowl-
edge: law, the sciences, medicine," said Galla Dicko, director of the
Ahmed Baba Institute, a library housing 25,000 of the texts.
"Here is a political tract," he said, pointing to a script in a glass
cabinet, somewhat dog-eared and chewed by termites. "A letter on
good governance, a warning to intellectuals not to be corrupted by
the power of politicians."
Bookshelves on the wall behind him contain a volume on
maths and a guide to Andalusian music as well as love stories
and correspondence between traders plying the trans-Saharan
caravan routes.
Timbuktu's leading families have only recently started to give
up what they see as ancestral heirlooms. They are being persuaded
by local officials that the manuscripts should be part of the
community's shared culture.
"It is through these writings that we can really know our place
in history," said Abdramane Ben Essayouti, Imam of Timbuktu's
oldest mosque, Djingarei-ber, built from mud bricks and wood in

Experts believe the 150,000 texts collected so far are just a frac-
tion of what lies hidden under centuries of dust behind the ornate
wooden doors of Timbuktu's mud-brick homes.
"This is just 10 per cent of what we have. We think we
have more than a million buried here," said Ali Ould Sidi, a
government official responsible for managing the town's World
Heritage Sites.
Some academics say the texts will force the West to accept Af-
rica has an intellectual history as old as its own. Others draw com-
parisons with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
But as the famle of the manuscripts spreads, conservationists
fear those that have survived centuries of termites and extreme heat
will be sold to tourists at extortionate prices or illegally trafficked
out of the country.
South Africa is spearheading 'Operation Timbuktu' to pro-
tect the texts, funding a new library for the Ahmed Baba In-
stitute, named after a Timbuktu-born contemporary of Will-
ilim Sbhakespeare.

crude and disastrous national

their personal and social lives.
The attraction of the nations

respect and appreciation and
protection for their national
The social refugees
fleeing political, ethnic and
religious conflicts and
violence in their nations
should ask themselves how is
it that the stable nations they
are fleeing to are able to be
stable. The reason usually
given by refugees for the
social stability of their new

nations is that they are
wealthy, industrially
developed, etc. But national
wealth does not guarantee a
generally calm and stable
everyday national life. There
are quite wealthy nations in
the Caribbean and Latin
American region shared by
Guyana which do not have a
calm stable national life,
despite their wealth. Perhaps.
it may even be their wealth
which led to this breakdown
of national life. Yet, neither

EACH citizen experiences
three forms of life: a per-
sonal life, a social life, and a
national life. Our personal
life comprises of close family,
lovers and friends. Our social
life comprises the things we
do regularly in society, like
visiting others, sports, cul-
tural events, or taking part in
social benefits, attending
dances or nightclubs and ca-
fes. Our national life is per-
haps the most important of
all, because both our personal
and social lives are contained
within it. It is our national
life which determines
whether our personal and so-

cial lives will be enjoyable, or
simply continue on a daily
basis. Our national life is out
public life on the streets out
in society walking, riding,
driving, shopping, traveling,
sitting or running on the sea-
wall, etc., and it is also out
tight as law-abiding citizens
to be safe in our homes, our
yards, our neighborhoods, or
anywhere in the nation. Ift
out national life is a disaster,
if no one is safe day or night
in any of these places, then
our personal and social lives
also become tainted, dam-
aged, sic, and chronically un-
happy, which defines our na-
tion and society on the whole
as unattractive and danger-

ous, since the conditions nec-
essary for economic and so-
cial progress become non-ex-
istent. Consequently. we have
no national life.
This is the sort of social
situation we see in several Afri-
can. Asian. Middle Eastern and
sometimes liastern Luropelan
and Latin American nations, as
well as certain Anglo Caribbean
islandsl. The refugees and imnIi-
grants fleeing these places for
Western Europe. Canada, Aus-
tralia. New Zealand, the USA.
and even stable optimistic Latin
American nations today, like
Argentina. Chile. Brazil andi
Uruguay, are not all people wvho

and social lives in their home-

tee has booked the duo for a big-
ger project on the island next
Ever since sealing their
business partnership, Cole
and Rose have coordinated lo-
cally a national basketball
competition, fusing fashion
with sport at the Cliff Ander-
son Sports Hall. The compe-
tition saw the showcase-of a
provocative mini-collection of
original swimwear in flirta-
tious cuts and brilliant
colours, much to the pleasure
of both guys and girls who were
treated at the sports show. 'Facts
and Roses' has since been the
talk of the town and the official
launch of the new label was ex-
pected since August
The duo has not only com-
bined their creative talents in a
business partnership, but have
become romantically involved
and will pledge their love in a
lifetime partnership ceremony at
Le Meredien Pegasus January 7.
While Cole is well known
and has established herself as
one of the designers in demand



in the region, Rose is a relatively
newcomer to the field of fashion
who has, in a short period, ef-
fectively stamped his authority.
The talented Rose walked away
with several awards at the 2006
Mashramani festival.
The new company has solic-
ited the services of Jamaican
Yasmin Ewers, to coordinate and
manage several aspects of their
business. Ewers, Managing Di-
rector of 'Perfektions by Yaz',
a marketing consultancy, events
management and wedding plan-
ning company, is spending some
time in Guyana to coordinate
several projects yet to be
'Yaz', as she is fondly
called, sat with the Sunday
Chronicle recently in Cole's
comfortable living room. She
talked about the Facts and
Roses' combination and some of
the better projects it will soon
"Maybe heaven could never
ask for two more extremely cre-
ative and beautiful people to
come together. The business
combination is fabulous, and the
personal combination couldn't'
be more beautiful," she declared.
She said the company is not
only working on new lines, but
will soon launch its modelling
agency and open an official
'Facts and Roses' retail store
which will also have available
.clothing under the 'Colefacts' la-
bel at the new shopping mall lo-
cated at Camp and Regent
Streets, Georgetown.
"People will finally get the
chance to walk in and pick up a
'Facts and Roses' or 'Colefacts'
design at the mall... We bring
real fashion to the streets of
Guyana," says Yaz.
Thirty gorgeous faces ten
of whom are males have been
contracted by the modelling
agency and they have all been
booked for each Weekend in No-
vember for fashion, photography
and commercial gigs even though
the agency has not been offi-
cially launched.
Training is being carried out
by Guyana's first 'Miss Model
International' representative
Rhea Austin, supervised by
Cole, herself a former model.
"We're trying to put
Guyana on the fashion map,"
Yaz said. She pointed out that
many other Caribbean countries
regularly stage fashion shows
and have quite a few Modelling
and Per sonal Development agen-
cies, wliile Guyana is starved for
such cl ibs and events.
"Jamaica has Caribbean
Fashion Week and St. Kitts has
its own 'St. Kitts Fashion Week'
but Gu' ana does not have any...
This (STORM) is just their first
public project together. We are
trying to put Guyana on the
fashion map and we intend to
take acts and Roses' and

Organisers at a press confer-
ence last week at Swansea last
week say they have been chal-
lenged to help motivate and be a
catalyst for the development of
gospel industry in Guyana, to
"turn on the light" so people
will be aware of the gospel tal-
ent in the country.
Papa San, whose given name
is Tyrone Thompson, is a former
dance hall artiste who converted
to Christianity in 1997. Calvin
Curtis Whilby, better known as
the Prodigal Son, had a colourful
past and began singing after he
became a Christian. Singer
Chevelle Franklyn, who re-
corded the internationally ac-
claimed 'Dance Hall Queen' with
Beenie Man, has also converted.
The show is being billed as
a "marriage of hope" to motivate
local talent by exposing them to
the audiences that would be at-
tracted to shows featuring well-
known artistes.
Organisers promise good,
clean fun beginning at 18:00
hrs, though the gates will
open at 17:00 hrs. Tickets cost
$1000 for adults and $500 for
children under 12. Toddlers
are free. The prices remain
the same at the gate.

a lesser extent the Toronto Sun) which I tried to monitor daily,
all carried extensive coverage on the anniversary. I walked over
to the US Consulate on University Avenue to add my respects
among the flowers, cards and other simple tributes placed by
Toronto residents and other visitors.
The second big issue was the situation in the Middle East where
Canada has a small contingent in Afghanistan. In one weekend alone,
live Canadian soldiers, including a new Canadian of Jamaican par-
ents, died. Jack Layton, the leader of the opposition New Demo-
cratic Party, a social democratic entity similar to the old time Labour
Party in Britain, called for the withdrawal of the country's troops.
The otherwise essential healthy debate "facing tough questions"
was how one column headline put it was marred with the some-
what crude viewpoint by Sun columnist Michael Coren in a column
titled 'We Should Nuke Iran', though this was expected from the
Sun, a traditional right wing rag.
There were several other ongoing topics in the media. Two of them are
environmental matters and minority rights. Canadians and their successive
governments in recent years are keenly aware of environmental challenges.
Commendable legislation has been passed. Calls, however, for more action
continue from, for example, the Green Party which received 4.5 per cent of
vote in this year's federal elections.
In 2001, Canada was one of the world's leading carbon emitting coun-
tries, a situation which contributes to the depletion of the ozone layer in the
atmosphere and world waning. The country's Ministry of Transport, In-
frastructure and Communities have over several administrations made initia-
tives, including assisting in developing of vehicles with alternative technolo-
gies. Significantly, 56 per cent of Canada's electricity is generated from
renewable, traditionally less environmentally polluting, sources. These
are hydro, thermal and nuclear.
Wild birds visit Canada from other countries and measures have
been in place to check for avian flu which has claimed lives in Asian
countries. Canadian authorities continue to monitor the pattern of
cases (eight sick cows since 2003) of bovine spongiform encephal-
opathy (BSE, or commonly called Mad Cow Disease) which like
avian flu can make the jump to humans. All the traditional main-
stream political parties (aside from the NDP, and Liberals, there is
the Quebec-based Bloc Quebecois and the ruling Conservative Party
which heads a 124 seat minority government in the 304 seat House
of Commons Parliament)have major planks on environmental issues
in their programmes. GTA officials were in September trying to find
other dumping sites, aside from the US state of Michigan. for the
estimated nearly one million tones of solid garbage.
GTA's six million population is made up of significant numbers

of peoples from other lands, including the Guyanese. In the last census, 43
per cent of the population reported they were visible ethnic minorities (or
were physically different from the traditional white majority). There are
100 different languages spoken by these new comers. In September, a black
woman Mayann Francis, became Lieutenant-Goveror in the Canadian prov-
ince of Nova Scotia. She is the daughter ofa Cuban immigrant and his Cana-
dian wife. The largely ceremonial position (it is a representative of the Queen)
is the provincial equivalent of the national Governor General who is pres-
ently another black woman, Haitian-born Michaelle Jean. It's a develop-
ment which prompted Barbados-born columnist in the G& M Cecil Fos-
ter, to observe: "..it's hard not to recognize the important statement Canada
is making about gender and race(with these appointments)."
There is still "much to do" as Trinidadian-Canadian human rights
lawyer Charles Roach tells me in his office in St. Clair Ave near
Christie when it comes to equality and acceptance of visible ethnic
minorities in Canada's multi racial and cultural mosaic or "Canada's
openness" as a University of Toronto lecturer described it.
Community-based media such as weekly newspapers and radio
stations orienting to the immigrant community (there are for
instance three major weeklies catering to various segments of the Car-
ibbean-Guyanese communities) may raise questions. These include
about the results of university studies documenting how newly ar-
rived ethnic minorities earn 15 to 25 less on average than their white
counterparts with same skills.
Canada had a relatively advanced human rights laws including
hate-crime legislation which, coupled with its liberal democratic
traditions, make for some checks on the rise of organised anti-for-
eigner sentiments in mainstream politics. A man in the western prov-
ince of Alberta was in September sentenced to 16 months in jail for
having a web site promoting hatred against Jews'? Ordinary Canadi-
ans appear willing to treat new people equally ifthey accept 'Cana-
dian' values and norms while not completely giving up all of theirs
from their birthplace and we must build on this democratic spirit.
Guyanese, as hard working Consul-General in the city Danny Doobay
reminds me when we discuss matters of mutual concern, have adopted Canada
as their new home. As in other countries, they work in many occupations and
contribute to'the country's economy. But they haven't completely given
up their cultural roots -nor should one expect them to do it Pandit Paul
Sharma at the Hindu mandir in Mississauga township to the west of Toronto
where I was staying with my sister, told me many of the devotees there
were from Guyana.
It is getting late on the bench on the waterfront and I shake
myself out of my half-snooze. It takes nearly an hour and half
on subway and bus to get back to Mississauga. It's glad to be
back once more in wonderful Toronto.

ten in 1849 and is said to be the last poem written by that author.
Poe has been labelled the originator of the modern detective story.
He seemed to have clued in on reaching El Dorado; clues he would
follow into the great beyond. Poe by that poem had taken the leg-
end of Il Dorado to another level. a celestial level. Here is part of
that poem:
'Gaily bedight.
A gallant knight.
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long.
Singing a song.
In search of Eldorado'
But as the knight grew old and his strength failed him, he in-
quired of a pilgrim shadow "where can it be,/This land of Eldorado?'
He was directed. 'Over the Mountains/Of the Moon'.
The phrase El Dorado caught my eye on two counts. Recently,
continuing a series of articles published in the Sunday Chronicle on
preserving our literary heritage, I started to trace the first writings
(with an emphasis on the novel) on our literary landscape. Almost
all of the earlier writings on Guyana were done by persons who
were attracted directly or indirectly to the legend of El Dorado, many
recording their own version of El Dorado as the Dutchman, Adriaan
Van Berkel, did in his 'TRAVELS IN SOUTH AMERICA', 1695,
as the Swiss-born, Everard Im Thurn did in 'ASCENT OF MOUNT
RORAIMA', 1885, as Robert Schomburgh, the German-born who
in 1837 discovered the Victoria Regia in the Berbice River. a lily
which has become the national flower of Guyana, and as Charles
Barrington Brown, the English geologist, who in 1870 rediscovered
the Kaieteur Falls that is now a national symbol of Guyana.
Added to that is my editorial for the 2006-2007 issue of 'THE
GUYANA ANNUAL'. a magazine which was published on and off
since its first appearance in December 1915 under the title
'CHRONICLE CHRISTMAS ANNUAL'. The main thrust of that
editorial which is titled. 'The El Dorado of Guyana', is to highlight
value and importance of a Guyanese Literature. The greatest trea-
sure of any country lies in its literature. From the first book on
BEAUTIFUL EMPYRE OF GUIANA'. written by Walter Ra-
leigh. published in 1596. to present day. the illusive El Dorado can
be found in our literature. According to my editorial, writers were
the only ones to find El Dorado and each writer is portraying that
image in newer arangeinents with each new piece of writing on this
country. The value enshrined in a good piece of literature in inex-
What is El Dorado? I present the version 1 like: Once upon a
time, there lived a king who had an extremely beautiful wife whom
he loved very much. And it came to pass. she did him a grave wrong.
So great was this injury, the king found it difficult to forgive her
and eventually began to ill-treat her. Unable to bear this situation,
the woman decided to commit suicide. With her daughter in trail.
they went to the top of a high mountain with a deep lake. Here the
mother threw herself into the water, taking the little child with her.
Much aggrieved, the king sought ways and means to get back his
wife and daughter alive. One such ritual was to throw gifts of gold
into the lake. Soon, this became a custom where the king would
cover himself in gold dust. sail to the centre of the lake, in the early
morning sunrise, to the sound of music and to the chant of prayers
and then wash himself. This legend of untold wealth was so mag-
netic it attracted explorers, traders and settlers to British Guiana.
Poe was not the only writer to explore El Dorado; Shakespeare
(1564 1616) did so in 'OTHELLO' with reference to the head-
less warriors. Milton (1608 1674) did so in 'PARADISE LOST'.
Voltaire (1694 1778) did so in 'CANDIDE' and so did Joseph
Conrad in 'HEART OF DARKNESS'. En passant, Milton was
blind when he 'wrote' 'PARADISE LOST' and 'PARADISE RE-
GAINED', Joseph Conrad (1857- 1924) when sixteen years of age,
started a twenty-year sea career as a Pole that ended with him be-
coming a naturalised British subject with a new name, and Voltaire
and his lover, Marquise du Chatelet, collected 21, 000 books over a
period of fifteen years.
What is the El Dorado of Guyana? The El Dorado of Guyana
is the literature of the country including invaluable gems written by
Pinckard, Waterton, Bebe, Roth, Dance, Lady Clementi, Mrs. Helen
Tee Van, McTurk, N. E. Cameron. Mittelholzer, Carter and others.
That is only scratching the surface of the landscape of Guyanese
literature. Duly induced, let's continue to explore the El Dorado of

gun, kidnap, etc., only humans, only citizens can, only people can. So it is really citizens, or
even transient foreigners (in the developed nations many new foreign immigrants also raise
crime levels) who damage or destroy the stability of national life everywhere. Their motives
are usually a violent quest for all sorts of power, economic, personal, political, geographic or
simply a desperate and unjust effort to survive without caring how they do it. When such callous
citizens increase, or begin to dominate their society and nation through aggression, fear, and
violence, then national life collapses, and wealth alone cannot save it.
The attraction of those stable nations mentioned is therefore not based on their wealth, but there
civilized preservation and everyday belief in, and maintenance of order, pleasure, industry, creativity
and economic productivity. Their wealth would mean nothing, and could not be shared without these
qualities. On the contrary, it is these social qualities of order, calm, pleasure, industry, creativity and
economic productivity which first lead to true wealth, not material wealth which leads to these quali-
ties or values. Violence creates social instability, which disrupts normal life, which is a necessity for
the building up of wealth. The total breakdown of national life begins when ordinary citizens guilty of
no crime can no longer enjoy the money they earn, become victims of crimes night and day on the
streets, at work, in their homes, neighborhoods, villages, etc., or wherever they may go in their na-
tion. This social breakdown is soon known around the world, and can prevent the return or help of
wealthy nationals, intellectuals, business people, even foreigners who would like to employ local people
in legitimate businesses. Moreover, writers of books, articles, makers of films and TV documentaries
etc, may record and report the negative aspects of the nation's life they see and hear, since such facts
register more than many other positive and pleasant ones in the nation. These are points that are
especially relevant to Guyana today.
How does a nation and its citizens preserve the pleasures and progress of their national life? Firstly,
by understanding what exactly is meant by 'national life', and secondly, by realizing that the fact of
national life is not something separate, or ineffective on out family lives, our personal and social lives.
and especially our material and economic lives. Many Guyanese tend to think that national life means
ONLY something proclaimed officially by a government speech or rubber stamp; for example, con-
cepts and structures like National Insurance, National Service, National Culture, National Radio and
TV, National Bank, National Park etc. But one can have all these organizations and services, yet still
have a miserable or unstable national life, as Guyanese came to learn. Why? Because national life is an
ordinary everyday reality that means far more than names, labels and political concepts.
National life means being able to walk anywhere at any time, night and day, in one's nation with-
out being attacked, robbed, killed. IT means being able to go to markets, nightclubs, to shop, so sit at
cafes, to go to the bank, seawall, park, rural villages, airport, hinterland areas, etc., without fear for the
security of one's life. National life means being able to sit on one's veranda, porch, backyard, front
yard, in cinemas, etc, without fear of some thief or bandit climbing in; it means being able to relax
night and day without hearing gunshots and screams of crimes being committed.
When nations cannot enjoy their daily and nightly life with a minimum of such social
tragedies, when nations are plagued by 'guerillas' or 'gangs' or 'races' etc., attacking each
other, then national life id ignored and threatened. If, however, a nation can preserve its na-
tional life, it can attract the best nations and people to its aid; it can rise economically and
socially, and become a model nation, a star nation, in the eyes of all.

Hello readers,
WELCOME to another week
where we will present to you
more exciting and interesting
information. This is the first
of two (2) articles which will
look at the issues that sur-
round poverty. Poverty is a
global issue with serious hu-
man and environmental con-
sequences that become more
heightened in the underdevel-
oped and developing coun-
tries. This week we will look
at what is poverty and what
the United Nations (UN) is
doing about poverty. Next
week we will examine the fac-
tors which contribute to pov-
erty, what rights humans have
and some practical ways to
address this issue.

Poverty may be defined in
many ways and may have vari-
ous extremes. Simply put,
poverty is the lack of the basic
necessity to live a healthy and
productive life. Extreme poverty
however, includes severe limita-
tions in fulfilling basic human
needs such as: food, safe drink-
ing water, sanitation facilities,
health, shelter, education, and
access to information.
An alarming one billion
people world wide, live in pov-
erty. Most live in developing
countries, particularly in rural
areas of low-income Africa.
Asia. Pacific Islands, Latin
America, and the Caribbean.
Some major contributing factors
include the overall lack of steady
income, limited access to re-
sources, poor economic choices

(PART 1)

and deprived capability to suc-
cessfully integrate into a free-
market democracy.
Sadly, women are the ones
who bear much of the burdens
of poverty, and their children are
often permanently disadvan-
taged, thereby recreating the
'cycle of poverty'.

The UN recognized pov-
erty as an issue that needs ur-
gent attention hence, in 1993
declared 17 October as the In-
ternational Day for the Eradi-
cation of Poverty. The UN in-
vited all States to devote the

Day to presenting and promot-
ing, as appropriate in the na-
tional context, concrete activi-
ties on the eradication of pov-
erty and destitution. Subse-
quently, International day for
eradication of poverty is ob-
served annually under a differ-
ent theme. Last month
Guyana joined with the rest of
the world in celebrating this
event under the theme "Work-
ing together out of poverty".
The observance entailed vari-
ous activities by governmental
organizations, sector agencies
and NGOs. The theme for
this year is a timely one since
it is only through collaborative
efforts that we can successful
defeat poverty.
In the year 2000,. world
leaders from 189 countries gath-
ered to discuss a plan of action
to significantly improve the
,- I -ow .1- M

lives of the world's poor. From
that gathering The Millennium
Development Goals," were de-
veloped, eight achievable goals
with measurable benchmarks in
the areas of combating poverty,
hunger, disease, illiteracy, envi-
ronmental degradation and dis-
crimination against women.
Their first goal: halving the
number of the world's poor by
In January 2005, there was
a Global call for Action against
Poverty which was a world-
wide alliance committed to forc-
ing the world's leaders to live
up to promises and to make a
breakthrough on poverty in
2005. It was launched at the
World Social Forum in Porte
Alegre, Brazil. The UN Millen-
nium Project presented Secre-
tary-General Kofi Annan with

International Day for the
Eradication of Poverty --
"Working together out of pov-
erty" -- highlights the need
for a truly global anti-poverty
alliance, one in which both
developed and developing
countries participate actively.
The world has made real
but insufficient progress to-
wards the Millennium Develop-
ment Goals. Thus, while ex-
treme poverty declined signifi-
cantly between 1990 and 2002
-- from 28 per cent to 19 per
cent of the developing world's
population -- progress has been
uneven both within and be-
tween regions and countries. In
much of Asia, economic and so-
cial progress has lifted nearly a
quarter of a billion people out
of perpetual poverty. But pov-
erty rates in Western Asia and
Northern Africa have remained
stagnant, while the transition
economies of Eastern Europe

and Central Asia have registered
increases. And sub-Saharan Af-
rica lags the most, with the re-
gion unlikely to meet the Mil-
lennium Development Goal of
halving extreme poverty by
Clearly, more needs to
be done to tackle poverty
and underdevelopment.
The Doha trade negotia-
tions need to produce freer
and fairer trade for all.
Developed nations need to
come through on their of-
ficial development assis-
tance (ODA) and debt re-
lief commitments. Devel-
oping nations, for their
part, should prioritize the
Millennium Development
Goals and, if they have not
yet done so, adopt national
strategies to achieve them.
They should utilize ODA
flows to bolster national
capacities in a sustainable
manner,, emphasizing bet-
ter governance and
strengthened rule of law.

And countries already on
track to achieve the Goals
can aim higher still by
adopting even more ambi-
tious targets.
Regrettably, the "global
partnership for develop-
ment" remains more phrase
than fact. This has to
change. All key development
actors -- Governments, the
private sector, civil society
and people living in poverty
-- must undertake a truly col-
lective anti-poverty effort
that will lift living standards
and alleviating human suffer-
The campaign to make
poverty history -- a central
moral challenge of our age --
cannot remain a task for the
few. it must become a calling
for the many. On this Inter-
national Day for the Eradica-
tion of Poverty, 1 urge every-
one to join this struggle. To-
gether, we can make real and
sufficient progress towards
the end of poverty.

The effects of living in pov-
erty are numerous: hunger, mal-
nutrition, limited or lack of edu-
cation, increase risk of disease
due to lack of healthcare,
homelessness or inadequate
housing, unsafe environments,
and social discrimination. Pov-
erty is everywhere; there are de-
veloping countries with mass
poverty and there are pockets
of poverty amid wealth in de-
veloped countries. It affects hu-
mans irrespective of age, race,
and gender.
The United Nations De-
velopment Programme
(UNDP) has undertaken an
initiative to involve every
possible group, including
non-governmental organiza-
tions (NGOs), businesses,
institutions, governments,
and YOU! There are fifty
countries that the United Na-
tions lists as the Least Devel-
oped Countries (LDCs);
thirty-four are in Africa,
fourteen are in Asia, one in
Latin America and the Carib-
bean, and one in the Middle

East. LDCs are characterized
by low national income,
weak human assets, poor
health, nutrition, education,
etc.), and a high economic
vulnerability, characterized
by the instability of agricul-
ture and small economies.

Imagine millions of people
live on less that $1-2 per day;
15% of children in these coun-
tries do not survive their fifth
birthday; 11 million children
under age five die each year
from preventable causes -
equivalent to more than 30,000
a day. Nearly 325 million chil-
dren are out of school; More
than 850 million are illiterate.
This is someone's everyday re-
In Guyana with its unstable
economy and high unemploy-
ment rate, poverty continues to
have dramatic impacts on our
lives. Although it may seem mi-
nor to some, we cannot ignore
the fact that many Guyanese
are living in poverty.
There is a lack of political
will as many nations have

made the verbal commitments,
but few have done enough on
the scale required. Every
human has the right to food
and a clean healthy
environment. It is disturbing
to know that there is enough
food in the world to feed
everyone, yet, malnutrition
and hunger still afflict one out
of every seven people.
Think about this for a mo-
ment and how might you be able
to help alleviate poverty!

Between the silver ribbon of the morning and the green
glittering ribbon of sea, the boat touched Parkay and let loose
a swarm of folk like flies, among whom the man whom we
must follow was by no means conspicuous nor wished to
be. There was nothing notable about him, except a slight
contrast between the holiday gayety of his clothes and the
official gravity of his face. His clothes included a slight, pale
gray jacket, a white waistcoat, and a silver straw hat with a
gray-blue ribbon. His lean face was dark by contrast, and
ended in a curt black beard that looked Spanish and sug-
gested an Elizabethan ruff. He was smoking a cigarette with
the seriousness of an idler. There was nothing about him to
indicate the fact that the gray jacket covered one of the most
powerful intellects in the Caribbean. For this was Dynamo
himself, the head of the Caribbean law-keeping force and the
most famous investigator of the third world: and he was com-

"Oh, you're a baby. You want to see your mother
"Yes, I want to see my mother again. You haven't got
a mother. So what do you know about it? And I am not
a baby."
"We'll let the little boy go home to his mother, Huck,"
Tom said. "But you like it here, don't you, Huck?"
"Y-e-s," Huck said weakly. But a look of doubt ap-
peared on his face.

Read this other passage.

Sophie sat at her desk in her room, thinking about her
life. Last year her mother had left, leaving Sophie alone with
her father. Their family problems had intensified over the
years with her father's drinking, her mother's irrational
behaviour, and Sophie's poor performance in school. Even-
tually Sophie stopped seeing her friends, replacing busy af-
ternoons with swimming practice and telephone calls with

solitude. The only thing that seemed to niatcr any more was
her orchids. She poured into them all of her love, since she
was unable to share it with anyone else. They served as a
barrier, protecting Sophie from her family problems, her
teacher's questions, and her own fear of being vulnerable.

Sophie broke out of her daze and drifted back into the
present. A feeling of frustration flooded over her. Was she
another crack-up like her parents? How did other people re-
solve their problems? All that her family had tried usually
failed. Still, there was nothing she could do. Her parents
were the ones with the problems. They caused all the agony.
leaving her only one place to hide in her room with her or-
chids. How could she accept responsibility for a life that
was already ruined by others? As for self-respect, the only
pride she had was in her plants.
About the story: This is a story about responsibility.
Read it over and over until it makes sense in your own per-
sonal life. Invite a good friend and sludy partner to read it
also. You will both see that for character building there is
the need for willingness to accept the responsibility for one's
own life, which is the source from which self-respect springs.


1. What inakes) you sure that the story is one of respon-
sibility? Point out \what convince(s) you that it is.
2. What is the meaning of "responsibility"?
3. Around which character does the story revolve?
4. Do \ou agree with the character's resolution?
5. Has your life ever been put on hold because of family
troubles? How differently would you handle that situation
today? Tell the answer to a friend and study partner.

Using a Reader-Response Journal
Reminder: Putting together the content of a reader-re-
sponse journal is a varied exercise:

Here are some ways you can try:
i) Think of a story or novel that has a character you find
appealing. Explain why you identify with the character.

ii) Rewrite an important scene from a different point of

iii) Write a review of the book. Note its strengths and
weaknesses as well as any suggestions you might have for
making the book better.

iv) List questions you have coined yourself about how
the book is organized.

v) Create a magazine advertisement that you think would
help sell the book.

vi) Create a dust jacket with a new cover design and in-
formation about the author on the inside flap.

Personal Note: What have you read so far that has deep-
ened your reactions? Is it a passage, a short story, a poem,
a novel? Search yourself and come up with a fair answer.
Resolve to acquire more skills to deepen your writing skills.
Try improving your relationship with good works of fiction -
the funniest, the saddest, the most interesting or surprising
thing, or something with which you strongly disagree.

Adverb Clauses
An adverb clause is a subordinate clause that modifies a

To gild refined gold,

to paint the lily,

To throw a perfume

on the violet...

Is wasteful and

ridiculous excess.

Wiliamt shakespeare

verb, an adjective, or an adverb. It tells when, where, how,
why, to what extent, or under what condition.
I studied hard before I took the test. [The adverb
clause modifies the verb studied. It tells when.]
I was happy because I passed the test. [The adverb
clause modifies the adjective happy. It tells why.]
I can study better if there is no noise. [The adverb clause
modifies the adverb better. It tells under what conditions.]

Adverb clauses are introduced by subordinating conjunc-
tions. such as those listed below:
After. although, as. as for as. as if. as long as, as soon
as. as though, because, before, considering (that), inasmuch
as. in order that, provided (that), since, so long as, so that,
than, though, unless, until, when, whenever, where, whereas,
wherever, while
[A subordinating conjunction joins two clauses, or ideas,
in such a way as to make one grammatically dependent upon
the other.]
Remember that an adverb clause may either precede
or follow the main clause. When the adverb clause
comes first, separate it from the main clause with a
comma. The first example above might have been writ-
ten as follows:
Before I took the Mathematics examination, I studied
At times words may be left out of an adverb clause.
You can easily supply the omitted words, however, because
that are understood, or implied. Adverb clauses in which
words have been omitted are called elliptical adverb clauses.
She can run faster than I [can run.]
The news made Joseph happier than [it made] me

Identify the adverbs clauses in the sentences below:

1. Although he led a life of hardship, Jacob, a villager from
Golden Groin, accomplished a great deal.

2. After he was kidnapped by a group of bandits in 2003,
Jacob was taken to Larapinta.

3. He was taken to Larapinta so that he could be sold
there as an enslaved person.

4. Once the opportunity arose, Joseph escaped to British
Columbia and taught himself Portuguese and Spanish.

5. As soon as all the hateful people died, Joseph returned
home to Golden Groin.

6. When Joseph met his family in 2(X)5, they were hungry
and discouraged.

ARIES -- If you are looking for excitement today, you should get physical! Of
course, it's up to you what kind of physical activity you take part in, but the
More people involved, the better! A pickup game of basketball, some Frisbee
throwing in the backyard, or even a round of miniature golf with friends will
do more for your endorphin levels than you might think. Get up off the couch
and out into the world today. If the weather doesn't cooperate, then head for
the gym!

TAURUS -- The advice you dole out today will have more impact that you
may intend it to, and there is a strong tendency for words to be misinterpreted
today so speak gently to the people who ask your opinions. If you tell
someone to 'chill out,' he or she may hear 'don't be pompous' and get
defensive. You cannot be responsible for the way other people react, but you
can make an effort to play it safe. Avoid the usual hotheads if you can.

GEMINI -- Get ready to have more intellectual conversations than you may
.' be used to today. A lot of deep thinkers want to ask your opinions on
controversial matters, and they're expecting compelling answers. This isn't
something you should let yourself be intimidated by quite the contrary. This
Sis a great opportunity to step up and show other people what has been going
on inside your gray matter. Don't worry about shocking or impressing anyone.
Just make sure to be true to yourself.

/ CANCER -- Be very careful with your impulses today. Don't entirely ignore
, what your gut is telling you to do, but take special care not to act too quickly
S right now. You should still listen to your instincts, but you should also feel
empowered to follow their instructions on your own timetable. Moving too
quickly could cause some carefully perched ideas to fall off the shelf and break

SLEO -- All the willpower you've been relying on lately is still going strong,
so have no worries that you'll succumb to any irresistible forces today. The
appeal that a vice holds for you is fading you just need to keep abstaining,
and soon you'll lose your tastf for it altogether. Plus, if you encourage your
U newly found inner strength to grow, you'll be able to use it in different contexts
in your life. Get ready to begin a very empowered phase of living.

VIRGO -- Betting on a long shot will give you a special sense of generosity
today, so pick your pony and place your bets! The risk may high, but the
universe says that whomever you put your power behind will be a winner.
You are no fair-weather fan, and you should be proud of that fact. When
others are looking for a sure thing, you're willing to take a leap of faith. Just
try not to brag when you come out smelling like a rose.

LIBRA -- It's always important to have hopes, but today you need to take
whatever hopes you have and try to push them into reality. Yes, it's time to
come up with a plan. If you can get organised early in the day, you can bring
some very far-fetched ideas one step closer to coming into being. This is a
day for long shots if you place all your bets on an unlikely outcome, you
Should end up with a big success to brag about.

SCORPIO -- When you meet new people, watch yourself when it comes to
Giving out personal information. This is not the time to litter the world with
your phone number! You might really want to push things forward, but coming
on too eager or giving up too much information is not the way to do it. Bide
your time you will definitely get another chance to make a first impression
with a promising person. This opportunity is not going to go away unless
you push it away.

SAGITTARIUS -- Your luck is about to take a drastic 180-degree turn today.
Sso get ready! This could be the positive, hopeful transformation you've been
waiting for- or. alas. it could be the end of a long string of happy coincidences
that \ ou'\ e been enj1 ing. This is just the universe's little reminder that you
can't gel too comfortable in life. Just when you thought you had the whole
thing figured out, something falls from out the blue and changes it all.

CAPRICORN -- Someone else's business problems are not your problems.
although you will have to deal with the fallout from them today (whether you
like it or not). It's very important for you to separate the person from these
problems otherwise, you run the risk of being distracted by emotional
Issues. Be careful not to get more involved than you need to. The way you
respond to things is your choice, and no one should be able to get away
with questioning your motives.

AQUARIUS -- Romance will be all around you today, so if you want to, just
reach out and grab it! This will involve some level of risk. so you would do
well to remind yourself that anything worth having requires stepping out of
your comfort zone a little bit. Keep in mind that romance isn't always about
love. Sharing intimate hopes, wishes and fears with a new person is another
way to turn up the drama and suspense in your life right now.

PISCES -- A new focus on health and diet will come into your life today.

in the hard effort that you know will pay off. It's time to face the facts and
trim the fat literally! Investigate new ideas on how to eat better and exercise
more. Ask around, and don't just assume that your local gym has all the
answers. There are many ways to approach this problem and get healthier in
a fun way.

Venezuelan actor has killer role in 3rd "Bourne"
By Borys Kit
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) Venezuelan actor Edgar Rainirez has been targeted to
play a "superkiller" in 'The Bourne Ultimatum', the third edition of the spy thriller now
shooting in Europe.
Matt Damon is back as amnesiac assassin Jason Bourne, reuniting with Joan Allen and Julia Stiles.
The story revolves around Bourne uncovering mysteries of his past, which puts him in the cross-
hairs of a superkiller. Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal ('Babel') was in negotiations to play the role'
but a deal could not be reached.
Ramirez might be best known to North American audiences for his work in 'Domino'. the Tony
Scott-directed thriller starring Keira Knightley.
New additions to the 'Bourne' cast include David Strathairn and Paddy Considine. Direc-
tor Paul Greengrass, the man behind the 2004 sequel 'The Bourne Supremacy', is shooting
the Universal Pictures project.

Myers, is pictured in an undated
publicity still from the computer
animated film of the same name.

By Nellie Andreeva

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) ABC is going for a green Christmas with "Shrek the
Halls', a half-hour original animated special based on the DreamWorks feature franchise.
The special to be voiced by the 'Shrek' features' original cast of Mike Mterx. Cameron Diaz.

a Christmas special that feels unique.
Katzenberg and his team came up with the idea to get their 'Shrek' charracier, in the

"Having this special on broadcast television is another really important piece l

Jackson has said he planned
to move to Europe in a bid to

in April a record label said he in-
tended to make a new album to

As well as Jackson's eagerly
awaited return, U.S. actress

MILAN (Reuters) Could an imposing medieval castle near Rome be the secret
location for the wedding of Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise and his actress fian-
cee Katie Holmes?
Italian newspaper I Messaggero emerged from the frenzy of a media hunt for a
celebrity wedding site to report on Tuesday that the 'Mission: Impossible' star and
his future bride plan to marry at Castello Odescalchi on the shores of Lake Bracciano.
The identification of Odescalchi, a castle which has hosted a pope and kings,
may be the end of the trail for reporters who have been trying to track down the
Cruise-Holmes venue ever since the couple announced their nuptials last month.
But a receptionist at the castle told Reuters the report was not true and that it
had no such booking.
The paper wrote there would be a warm-up party with other celebrities on No-
vember 16, a Catholic wedding ceremony for the pair on November 17 and a final
ritual on November 18 conducted by Scientology, the church founded by science fic-
tion writer L. Ron Hubbard and of which Cruise is a member.
Rome-based II Messaggero did not say how the twice-divorced Cruise could have
a Catholic wedding.
The couple announced in October that they would get married on November 18
in Italy, with Giorgio Armani designing Holmes' wedding gown. Since then, the tab-
loid hunt has been on to find the exact location, with northern Italian lakes Garda and
.iComo also mentioned as possible wedding sites.
Europe has already provided backdrops to some of the most public moments for
'TomKat', as tabloids have dubbed the couple: Cruise, 44. told reporters in Rome
about the joy of changing baby daughter Suri's nappies, and the two announced their
engagement at a Paris news conference after he proposed to her at the Eiffel Tower.
Holmes. 27. gave birth to Suri in April. The baby has already had her own 22-
page photo spread in Vanity Fair. further whipping up the media furor around the
But some of the publicity has backfired. Cruise became the butt of jokes after an
appearance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' last year, when he magically jumped up
