BERLIN (Reuters) A court in Germany rejected a
man's compensation claim against an airline af-
ter a.cabin crew ordered him off a plane because
other passengers were offended by his smell, au-
thorities said.
An appeals court in the western city of
Duesseldorf upheld an earlier ruling that British Air-

ways (BA) had acted within its rights by removing the man from
the aircraft after a female passenger sitting next to him complained
about his smell.
'The stewardess took him to one side and asked him if he could
put on a fresh shirt, but they were all in the hold," a court spokes-
man said. "So then he was asked to leave the plane about two
minutes before take off."
BA said other passengers were upset by the smell, he added.
The corporate lawyer and his wife were scheduled to re-
turn home from Hawaii via Los Angeles on a BA flight sub-

contracted to American Airlines last year, and'missed their
connection to Germany when the incident forced them to
take the next plane.

TOURISM, Industry and
Commerce Minister
Manniram Prashad has his
eyes on the birds and hopes
they could help him make
Guyana a household name in
the near future.
He was a bit on a high and
looking up and around for birds
and other things when he
shared his bird-watching vision.
On a visit Wednesday to the
Canopy Walkway in the
lwokrama Forest in southern
Guyana, he noted that the coun-
try is ideally suited to get rich
dividends from nature-oriented

"I would like to see in a
short time Guyana ranked to
some extent with Belize and

Mr. Prashad said that while

cently in London, he had fruit-
ful discussions with the Belize
Tourism Director on getting

there with the best in nature-
oriented tourism.
He feels the majestic

"Our canopy is unique; this
is probably one of the best in
the world, and it was built in
harmony with the surround-

The lwokrama Canopy

sion bridges and decks of up to
30 metres high and 154 metres
long over parts of the forest. It

ment is working closely with
stakeholders to make visits to
Iwokrama possible for locals.
There is a two rate system.
he said, under which locals pay
less than foreigners for the visit.
"We want Guyanese to see
how beautiful their country is,"
Prashad said.
But Guyana's tourism in
the future would not only fo-

and the many waterfalls.
Prashad is leaning towards the
country's bird watching and
yachting potential.
Guyana is a haven for birds
and is rapidly gaining attention
in international birding circles.
One choice location is

Seven guides from interna-
tional birding tourism operators
and two representatives from
the birding media in the United

Kingdom Friday began a seven-
day product familiarisation tour

thority (GTA) said.
The product familiarisation
tour (called a FAM trip by the
industry) runs until November
26 and is the second of three
such trips that bring international
tour operators and media to

hosting some of the world's top
birding companies, including:

The GTA said the countries
being represented by the tour
operators include Canada, the

potential; Guyana is out of the
hurricane zone and it's only a
matter of time for us to attract

Services Minister

in Bare Root

HUMAN Services and Social Security Minister, Priya
Manickchand, yesterday visited the East Coast Demerara
village of Bare Root and promised to help address crucial
problems, including lack of electricity and insufficient po-
table water supply.
The Government Information Agency (GINA) said residents
also highlighted unemployment among their concerns.
The agency said they told Ms. Manickchand that no po-
table water supply is available in some sections of the village
and they are forced to walk long distances to get water.
The lack of electricity was also brought to her attention with
residents pointing out that since the village was established no
electricity has been provided
GINA said the minister indicated that while she is not in a
position to make promises, she will ensure that the government
is apprised of the situation and will endeavour to have it ad-
"You have children who can one day develop our country.
All efforts should therefore be made to ensure that youths are
given an equal opportunity to excel and realise their full poten-
tial," she said.
The agency said she referred to young Donovan Sullivan,
of Bare Root, who excelled in the recent Secondary Schools En-
trance Examination (SSEE), securing a place at President's Col-
Manickchand said Donovan's success should motivate other
students in the community, encouraging them to concentrate on
their studies to be successful in their examinations.
"Residents have the power to change the negative image of
their communities by working together; this spirit is pivotal to
moving Guyana forward," she said.
The minister promised residents to return next month
for a Christmas party for children in the community.

GUYANA, among the most
indebted poor countries in
the hemisphere pushing for
critical debt write-off by the
Inter-American Development
Bank (IDB), will have its debt
cancelled, the Government
Information Agency (GINA)
reported yesterday.
The agency said Governors
of the bank meeting in Washing-
ton DC Friday reached agree-
ment on the framework for a
debt relief package for the most
indebted poor countries of
Latin America and the Carib-
bean, which will result in debts
being cancelled to Guyana. Bo-

was in Washington for a meet-
ing of the Commission of Gov-
ernors of the IDB.

Prior to his departure, the
President had explained that
Guyana could benefit from as
much as US $400M, should the

"We've been pushing for an
early meeting, that is, the four
HIPCs )Heavily-indebted Poor
Countries) plus Haiti.... we're
still in a major lobbying mode at
this point in time and we're
pushing the bank to come up
with a proposal that will meet
our expectations very early,"
Mr. Jagdeo had said.
GINA said the principles of
the framework stipulate that
100 per cent debt relief be
granted, with effect from Janu-
ary 1, 2007, to the five countries
eligible for the concessional
Fund for Special Operations
(FSO) window of the IDB.

said, will continue to have access

to concessional loans and tech-
nical cooperation grants from
the IDB.
It said the specific details of
the package, such as the cut-off
date and the definition of the eli-
gible debt will be decided at a
subsequent meeting of the Com-
mission of Governors.
According to the agency,
this will be held in time for the
agreements reached to be pre-
sented to the annual meeting of
the IDB Board of Governors in
Guatemala, in March 2007.
Governors will vote elec-
tronically for the final detailed
debt relief package but, said
GINA, it is widely expected to
be approved, given the level of
support that has already been
expressed for the framework by
shareholders of the IDB, such as
the United States of America,
and Brazil.
The agency said the agree-


ment reached Friday represents
a significant step towards con-

lation of debts by HIPCs to the
Under the MDRI, debts by
the HIPCs to the International
Monetary Fund (IMF), the
World Bank's International De-

Fund (ADF) have already been
written off.
The IDB was established in
1959 to provide financing to
Latin American countries. It is
owned by its 47 members, with
borrowing members holding
about 50 per cent of total votes
and non-borrowing members
holding the other half.

U.S. warns Iraq against sectarianism amid kidnap row

By Claudia Parsons

BAGHDAD, (Reuters) U.S.
Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice appealed
to Iraqis yesterday not to let
the sectarianism that is fuel-
ling an orgy of violence de-
stroy their country.
A recent surge of
kidnapping by men in uniform
has stoked fears of infiltration
.of Iraq's security forces by
members of both sectarian mili-
tias and criminal groups.
Continuing arguments yes-
terday between Sunni- and
Shi'ite-run ministries about the
fate of hostages seized from the
Higher Education Ministry on
Tuesday underlined the extent
to which sectarianism infects
politics at the top.
Rice said during a visit to
Vietnam that Iraqis "have one
future and that is a future to-
gether. They don't have a future
if they try to stay apart."
An official at the Sunni-run
Higher Education Ministry said

he had a list of 35 names of
staff missing from the Recon-
struction and Projects depart-
ment, one of two in the build-
ing. The other department was
missing 11 staff, and 20 visitors
were also unaccounted for, he
He said a released hostage
had seen two others die of suf-
focation after being gagged with
cotton wool and tape while be-
ing tortured. Another ministry
official said five hostages had
been released on Friday after
being tortured.
The U.S. military said in a
statement that Iraqi special
forces backed by U.S. advisers
had conducted a raid against a
kidnapping cell in Sadr City, a
Shi'ite militia stronghold where
witnesses said the ministry
hostages had been taken.
But a spokesman for the
Shi'ite-run Interior Ministry,
Brigadier Abdul Karim Khalaf,
said all the hostages were free.
"This matter is now closed
and we have declared all the

hostages released. If any family
says one of their relatives is
missing, let them come to the
ministry and tell us", he said.

In the south of the country,
security forces were hunting for
five kidnapped Western contrac-
tors, also by men in uniform.
Four Americans and an Aus-
trian were seized in the hijack
of a truck convoy near the Ku-
waiti border on Thursday.
The attack in Iraq's oil-rich
south underlined the extent to
which militias and gangs are un-
dermining stability well beyond
Baghdad, despite U.S. assur-
ances that the vast bulk of vio-
lence in Iraq takes place in the
British Prime Minister
Tony Blair's office sought to
quell the idea that he had admit-
ted to Al Jazeera television on
Friday that the intervention in
Iraq had so far been disastrous.
When the interviewer sug-
gested the period since the U.S.-

led invasion had been "pretty
much of a disaster". Blair re-
plied: "It has, but you see, what
1 say to people is: 'Why is it
difficult in Iraq?'
"It's difficult because
there's a deliberate strategy -
al Qaeda with Sunni insurgents
on one hand, Iranian-backed el-
ements with Shia militias on the
other to create a situation in
which the will of the majority
for peace is displaced by the
will of the minority for war."
A spokeswoman said Blair's
initial agreement had simply
been meant to politely acknowl-
edge the question.
Even so, U.S. and British lead-
ers have usually responded to such
comments in the past by arguing
that some parts of Iraq are rela-
tively quiet, and so Blair's remark
resonated with critics of the war
who saw in it an admission Iraq is
going badly wrong.
Iraq's Deputy Prime Min-
ister Barham Salih said the
situation had reached a criti-
cal level.

APEC looks to talks on

global trade, North Korea
By Bill Tarrant

HANOI, (Reuters) Asia-Pacific leaders said they were
ready to make deeper cuts on farm subsidies to revive co-
matose global trade talks, as they began a summit yester-
day overshadowed by diplomacy over North Korea.
In a statement issued on the first day of their two-day sum-
mit, leaders of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum
said ''major players" in the group were ready to commit to
deeper cuts in "trade-distorting farm support".
The statement, which gave no details, said the leaders vowed
to cut industrial tariffs and remain "personally involved" to en-
sure there is enough flexibility for a breakthrough.
EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson welcomed the
offer, telling reporters in New Delhi it provided hope that ne-
gotiations could resume next year.
The Doha round of World Trade Organisaton (WTO) talks
collapsed in July amid bitter disputes over farm subsidies.
Reviving them depends on how much the United States cuts
farm subsidies, how much the EU Iowers tariffs on farm im-
ports and export subsidies, and how much developing coun-
tries reduce barriers to industrial and service imports.
Christoph Wiesner, charge d'affaires of the European Com-
mission delegation in Vietnam, said the declaration was a "wel-
come reaffirmation that the global trade talks take precedence
over other arrangements in the Asia-Pacific".
U.S. President George W. Bush has been trying to drum up
support for a free trade zone encompassing the 21 APEC mem-
bers, but Washington was rebuffed in its bid to make the pro-
posal a key part of this weekend's summit in Hanoi.
Supporters of the vast proposed Pacific Rim trade area see
it as insurance against failure to resuscitate the Doha talks.
APEC accounts for nearly half of global trade and nearly
60 per cent of the world's GDP. It encompasses economies and
political systems as different as global superpower the United
States and the tiny sultanate of Brunei.
Their agenda is diverse, from climate change and customs
procedures to economic security threats and the role of women
in development. Security issues like the war on terrorism and
North Korea have grown in importance.
White House national security adviser Stephen Hadley said
APEC leaders had largely agreed on a statement to ratchet up
the pressure on North Korea to be issued today, officials said.
However, President Bush failed to persuade South Korean
President Roh Moo-hyun to join a U.S. plan to intercept North
Korean ships carrying suspicious cargo, at their meeting on the
summit sidelines.
Seoul said it supported the initiative's goals but feared it
would lead to armed clashes at sea.
All the countries involved in six-party talks to end North
Korea's nuclear programmes are in Hanoi except for the North
itself, and the five leaders spent most of the morning in a meet-
ing on what should be expected out of the next round.
No date has been set for those negotiations.
The need for talks, stalled since last year, became all the
more pressing after North Korea conducted a nuclear test on
Oct. 9, drawing U.N. sanctions. North Korea has since agreed
to return but no date has been set.
The week-long APEC extravaganza, which has attracted
10,000 officials, businessmen and journalists to Vietnam's new
$270 million convention centre, is also an opportunity for lead-
ers to bond via Asian-style informal diplomacy.
Bush and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe talked base-
ball and Abe gave Bush a photograph of their two grandfathers
playing golf with Dwight Eisenhower.
At the conclusion of the summit today, the leaders will don
Vietnamese ao dai tunics for the traditional salute to local fash-
ion and to demonstrate solidarity.
Bush is the second American president to visit Hanoi since
the end of the war and has been dogged by comparisons with
He yesterday visited the joint POW/MIA Accounting Com-
mand, where U.S. experts are working to find and identify the
remains of American war dead.
It was only a brief stop for Bush, who has made clear that
rather than dwelling on old animosities, he wants to focus on
Vietnam as an emerging trade partner and economic success

Chavez warns

Venezuelan TV not

to support coup

By Patricia Rondon

EL ESPINAL, Venezuela,
(Reuters) Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez has
warned private media he
would shut them down if they
promote a bid to topple him
he says is planned after his
expected Dec. 3 re-election.
Chavez, who has gradually
increased his control over most
Venezuelan institutions, has ac-
cused the opposition of plan-
ning to oust him if he wins an-
other big majority as most polls
expect he will.
He has said he expects the

Argentina resumes main

natgas supply to Chile

AIRES, (Reuters) Argentina
resumed key exports of natu-
ral gas to Chile early on Fri-
day and the Argentine gov-
ernment reached a deal in
the evening with union work-
ers, ending a three-day pro-
test at oil and gas fields in
the south.
Argentina halted supplies
to central and northern Chile
early Wednesday when two
large unions in four main oil and
gas-producing provinces called a
work stoppage. For a while the
only gas to reach Chile was
through pipelines in the rela-
tively unpopulated south.
In Buenos Aires, talks be-
tween workers, the government
and companies to end the pro-
test lasted most of Thursday
and Friday.
The private companies that
operate in Argentina's principal
oil and gas region in the prov-
inces of Rio Negro, Neuquen,
Santa Cruz and Chubut agreed
to pay part of workers' income
tax, a spokesman for the labour
ministry told Reuters.
The ministry said all the
companies that operate in the
area had joined the accord.
Among companies that operate
in the region are the local arms
of Spain's Repsol YPF and
Brazil's Petrobras.
Two unions representing
some 27,000 workers agreed to
end their protest, which had al-
ready been lifted in some oil

U.S. asks court to deny Guantanamo prisoner request

By John Poirier

WASHINGTON, (Reuters) -
A Guantanamo prisoner's le-
gal petition to move a heart
procedure from the remote
U.S. military base in Cuba
should be denied because a
similar medical procedure
was successfully performed
there in 2003, the U.S. gov-
ernment said in court docu-
ments filed Friday.
"All necessary medical
equipment and highly trained
and experienced medical per-
sonnel will be in place to per-
form the procedure on peti-
tioner at the Naval Hospital at
Guantanamo," U.S. Assistant
Attorney General Peter Keisler
Saifullah Paracha, a 59-
year-old Pakistani businessman
who holds U.S. residency, has
had two heart attacks and re-
cently suffered chest pains,
prompting doctors at
Guantanamo to schedule the
procedure around Nov. 21.
His lawyers filed a motion
with a federal court in Washing-
ton on Tuesday for an emer-
gency restraining order to stop
the cardiac catheterization
scheduled at the base where
some 430 suspected al Qacda
and Taliban prisoners are held.
They said there are cardiac
catheterization laboratories in
the United States or Pakistan
that could perform the proce-
Captain Ronald Sollack, a
U.S. Navy Medical Corps doc-
tor who is the commander of the
naval hospital there, said in

court documents in the U.S. re-
sponse to Paracha's petition
that a heart catheterization was
performed in 2003 during which
an artery stent was required.
"This is not the first time
this procedure has been pro-
vided to a detainee in
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba," he
said. "Both the catheterization
and the stent placement were
performed successfully."
In a cardiac catheterization,
a thin plastic tube is inserted
into an artery or vein and pushed
into the chambers of the heart.

The U.S. government's
treatment of Guantanamo de-
tainees has been the subject of
international condemnation and
court challenges since the first
of the prisoners were trans-
ferred to the U.S. naval base in
2002. Most have not been

charged with crimes.
Washington has maintained
that the prisoners can be held
indefinitely without charges or
access to courts.
Paracha's lawyer has said
his client, a businessman and
television producer, was seized

illegally while on a business trip
in Thailand and taken to Bagram
Air Base in Afghanistan. He was
moved to Guantanamo around
September 2004.
He said a hearing on the
request for a restraining or-
der was set for tomorrow.

"The agreement was
signed," another labour ministry
spokesman said.
Carlos Cortes, executive secre-
tary of the Chilean Association of
Natural Gas Distributors, said Fri-
day gas had resumed flowing to
central Chile, the most heavily
populated area of the country.
Chile gets all its natural gas
from Argentina, so any threat to
supply is taken seriously. Ar-
gentina has hiked its gas prices
recently and cut exports to
Chile to meet its own energy
"As of 6 a.m. 'his morning,
Argentine natural gas started
flowing again to the central zone
through the GasAndes duct,"
Cortes told Reuters.
He said initial supply was
of 1 million cubic metres per
day, a fifth of normal supply.
The suspension of supplies
had little effect in Chile. Indus-
try and power companies
switched to alternative fuels
and the government said it had
enough gas to meet demand for
at least four days, by which
time it expected supply to be
fully resumed.
It said that, in the un-
likely event supplies were not
resumed within four days, it

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 19, 2006


IN A new and welcome business-like mood, the Mayor
and City Council have signalled readiness not only to
be proactive in a campaign to clean up the terrible
mess around Georgetown, but to also ensure that long
overdue rates and taxes are collected.
It is perhaps fitting that the two approaches should
be blended since residents and property owners who
have for too long been deprived of the services to which
they are entitled in this capital city of the nation, could
rationalise their default in honouring payment
obligations to the M&TC.
Mayor Hamilton Green, in a recent post-elections
reflection on the way forward for Guyana, had
commended President Bharrat Jagdeo for a "well-
structured and inspirational address" at the ceremonial
opening of the Ninth Parliament. He then went on to point
to an urgent need for significant reforms in the
functioning of our municipalities.
As one who has long been involved in the politics
of governance, and understands the importance of
bipartisan cooperation, Mayor Green feels that some of
the laws pertaining to the local government system, and
the municipalities in particular, were "unsuitable for the
21st century".
Following a meeting he had with Local
Government Minister, Kellawan Lall, the Mayor was to

New image for Georgetown

report that the "conversation had helped to restore my
faith" of changes to come, and that he was looking
forward to the local government system "benefiting from
the minister's vision and sincerity".
Whatever the nature of that articulated "vision" to
which Mayor Green has alluded, we are also anxiously
awaiting significant changes in the local government
system across the nation starting with new elections and
enactment of laws based on meaningful consultations
with all stakeholders.
Meanwhile, since President Jagdeo has himself
declared his interest in ensuring vigorous and concerted
efforts to restore the once famous reputation of
Georgetown as the 'Garden City of the Caribbean', it is
to be hoped that Mayor Green, city councillors across
the political divide and, of course, the management of
this municipality, will methodically move to give
substance to the pledges for a massive facelift of the
capital city.
The eyesores are everywhere filthy, smelling
clogged drainage systems, spreading garbage dumps
with flies and rats, roads with horrible potholes, derelict
buildings, the general uncleanliness around markets
and car parks.
Thank goodness that, with India's help, we will
once again know what it means to have functioning traffic

lights in the city.
Let's hope that the City Council, which has frequently
benefited from significant subsidies from the Central
Government, will be as vigorous in the cleanup
campaign of Georgetown as it plans to be in collecting
long overdue rates and taxes.
All helping hands are needed to end the decay
of Georgetown so that today's generation could come
to understand what was once so proudly proclaimed
as the 'Garden City of the Caribbean'.

- Technical group calls for significant changes

THERE could be significant changes in the administrative
functioning of the 33-year-old Caribbean Community if the
Heads of Government of this regional economic integration
movement treat with expected seriousness wide-ranging
recommendations by a Technical Working Group (TWG) on
A primary focus of recommendations made by the TWG is
the establishment of a high-level four-member Caribbean Community
Commission (CCC). It will be empowered with executive authority
to spearhead conduct of the community's business with a
restructured CARICOM Secretariat being incorporated into its
Further, it has been recommended that the parliaments of
participating member states approve a "single CARICOM Act" to
permit reception of "Community Law", provided for in the revised
Treaty of Chaguaramas, as the legal basis for the functioning of the
It was the CARICOM Heads of Government who, 16 months
ago, had established at their 26th annual Summit in St Lucia, the
TWG of five members and six advisers under the chairmanship of
Dr. Vaughan Lewis, former Director General of the Organisation of
Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), and Dr. Denis Benn. Michael
Manley Professor of Public Policy, University of the West Indies
(UWI) (Mona campus) serving as vice-chairman.
Fourteen years ago, the West Indian Commission of eminent
nationals of our community, chaired by Sir Shridath Ramphal, and
Sir Alister McIntyre as vice-chairman, had included as a major
proposal the creation of a three-member CARICOM Commission.
It was to be empowered with executive authority and
function for an initial period of five years with possible
renewal of no more than a second term. Its establishment has
been one of the most elusive aspects of decision-making by
our CARICOM leaders.
Now, in a 50-page report, submitted by the Lewis-led TWG
late last month a copy of which was obtained by this writer -


13 Heads of Government of independent states that are integrally
involved in the CARICOM Single Market and Economy process
(the exceptions being Haiti and The Bahamas).
Consultations also included key officials of the Commission
of the European Union: the CARICOM Secretariat. including
Secretary General Edwin Carrington. the Governor General of
Jamaica. Kenneth Hall. and the now retired former long-serving
Prime Minister of Jamaica. Percival J. Patterson.
The major recommendations extend to an overhaul of
the structure and functions of the Guyana-based Community
Secretariat to absorb it in operationalising the Caribbean
Community Commission (CCC). The financing criteria and
modalities of functioning of the CCC form part of the TWG's
Rationale for recommending the CCC derives, in the reasoning
of the TWG, from "a general recognition of an implementation
deficit in the activities of CARICOM".
The proposition is for the CCC to be headed by a President
and including three other Commissioners, all of whom should be
persons of "high political experience" and possessed with the
capacity to "give policy direction and orientation to the central
executive mechanisms of the Community..."
It is proposed that the post of Secretary General of the
community should be abolished and all top officials, from Deputy
Secretary General to Assistant Secretary General be absorbed in a
"technical directorate" of the CCC, along with all other required
staffers of the current secretariat.
The important responsibility exercised by the Caribbean
Regional Negotiating Machinery (CRNM, currently headed by
Richard Bernal) has been proposed to fall under the CCC's
Commissioner for Regional and International Trade and Economic
Integration. This mechanism is intended to replace the various
functions now required of the CARICOM Prime Ministerial Sub-
Committee on External Negotiations.
The TWG comprised Professor Lewis (chairman;
Professor Denis Benn, Michael Manley Professor of Public
Policy at UWI (Mona (vice-chairman); Angela Cropper,
President Cropper Foundation and former Director of
Functional Cooperation, CARICOM Secretariat: Professor
Ralph Carnegie, Executive Director Caribbean Law Institute
Centre, (UWI, Cave Hill) and Mr. James Moss-Solomon
President Caribbean Association of Industry and Commerce

the technocrats have stayed with the guiding concept of "collective
exercise of sovereignty" by CARICOM governments while making
recommendations for some major changes in the community's
governance system.
These include ideas located in the "Rose Hall Declaration on
Regional Governance" that resulted from the July 2003 CARICOM
Summit in Montego Bay.
"The Rose Hall Declaration" had urged "the development of
a system of mature regionalism in which critical policy decisions
of the community will have the force of law throughout the
Two years later, following varying calls from the Prime
Ministers of Trinidad and Tobago (Patrick Manning) and St Vincent
and the Grenadines (Ralph Gonsalves) for advancing the process
for effective governance, a Prime Ministerial Expert Group (PMEG)
on "Governance and Regional Integration" chaired by Gonsalves,
was established.
That "expert group" noted that CARICOM "is already too
bureaucratised to add whole new layers of inter-regional
instrumentalities". So it suggested a "clearly defined hierarchy of
regional decision-making embracing special ministerial-level
committees and Heads of Governments."

Following further deliberations, involving regional technocrats,
cabinet ministers and Heads of Government, came last year's
decision to appoint the TWG with precise terms of reference.
It included determining the basis by which a high-level
commission with executive authority "would co-exist with the
executive responsibility for implementation that now resides in
respective cabinets" and how such responsibility could/would be
transferred to such a commission.
The TWG's report has responded to that and other concerns.
Its range of recommendations came after wide consultations with

Trinidad sets up

Heritage Fund

By Linda Hutchinson-Jafar

- Trinidad and Tobago has
joined other resource-rich
countries in setting up a pe-
troleum fund to ensure the
country's sustainable growth
and development when en-
ergy sector revenues decline
and oil and gas resources be-
come depleted.
The government has already
deposited large surpluses gener-
ated by high oil prices into the
Interim Revenue Stabilization
Fund which now stands at
US$1.4 billion.
This year alone, the govern-
ment transferred more than
US$500 million into the fund,
representing the largest annual
transfer ever made.
Between 2000 and 2005,

the size of the fund increased
thirteen-fold, from US$66 mil-
lion to US$875 million due to
high international oil prices.
Junior Finance Minister-
Conrad Enill, in tabling a bill in
the Parliament for the creation
of a Heritage and Stabilization
Fund which will replace the in-
terim fund, described it as an ar-
rangement that saves for the
long term stability of the coun-
"It seeks to ensure that it is
used for savings...and that re-
sources can be used to maintain
a reasonable standard of living,"
he said.
Prime Minister Patrick
Manning said the fund will pro-
vide the government with an ef-
fective vehicle to reduce the vul-
nerability of fiscal operations to
changes in international energy

prices and to save some of the
revenue from the exploitation
of the country's depletable re-
sources for future generations.
'"he mechanism for transfers
from the Heritage and
Stabilisation Fund will help main-
tain fiscal discipline by linking the
level of Government expenditure
to long run, sustainable energy
prices", Manning said.
"On this basis, a significant
share of the revenue to be de-
rived from the high prices ex-
pected to prevail over the next
few years will be saved and in-
vested abroad in high yielding
financial assets," he added.
According to the legislation,
the fund will provide savings
for future generations and
weather the storm in case of a
drop in oil or natural gas prices.
Since Trinidad and Tobago's

oil and gas resources are deplet-
ing resources, the legislation
seeks to develop alternative in-

Withdrawals from the fund
would be for two purposes:

The IMF has pointed out
that if the proposed Trinidad
fund is to be effective, it must
be accompanied by strong fis-
cal and macro-economic poli-
cies by the government, which
would lead to more efficient and
effective use of resources and
revenue derived from the hydro-
carbon resources.
"This would not only lead
to greater equity within this
generation and with future gen-
erations, but facilitate overall
growth and development of the
economy," the IMF said in a re-
port last year.

A U.S.-Caribbean free trade area?

(The writer is a business executive and former Caribbean

SHOULD Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries en-
ter a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States?
A few readers interpreted an observation that I made in my
commentary ('U.S. mid-tern elections and the Caribbean') to mean
that I was advocating such in agreement.
In fact, I was not. .
All that I did was topoint
out that "the Caribbean is yet to
negotiate a Free Trade Agree-
ment with the U.S.";
CARICOM "has mot seriously
focused" on such.an agreement;
and "time may be iamninglout to
get negotiations for such an
agreement firmly undeil way"
with the present U.S, adminis-
tration since the authority that
Congress gave President 1 heorge
W. Bush to sign such agreements
ends in July 2007.
The matter of whether
CARICOM countries should en-
ter an FTA with the U.S. is com-
What are the arguments for
CARICOM countries entering an
FTA with the U.S.?
The main argument is that the U.S. has entered FTA's with
other countries whose goods and services compete with
CARICOM's in the U.S. market. Among these FTA's is the agree-
ment between the U.S., a number of Central American countries
and the Dominican Republic.
When these FTA's are up and running, the exports of these
countries will displace CARICOM products in the U.S. market be-
cause they will enter the market on more advantageous terms.
CARICOM saw this happen when the North American Free
Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was signed in 1994 by the U.S., Canada
and Mexico.
Prior to NAFTA, certain goods from CARICOM countries en-
joyed duty-free treatment in the U.S. market under the Caribbean
Basin Initiative introduced by the Reagan administration. Once
NAFTA came into force, those goods could not compete with similar
products from Mexico.
But, the fact that the U.S. is concluding FTA's with other coun-
tries and regions is not, by itself, sufficient reason for CARICOM
countries to enter an agreement with the U.S.
The experience of Mexico with NAFTA clearly demonstrates
that ,while there were benefits to Mexico in terms of lower tariffs
on Mexican goods entering the U.S. market, there was also a huge
downside to the agreement.
For example, the U.S. used non-tariff barriers to block Mexi-
can products that began to give serious competition to U.S. pro-
duced goods. At the same time, heavily subsidized U.S. agricul-
tural products, particularly corn, entered the Mexican market
cheaper than Mexican farmers could produce them. This led to a
displacement of Mexican farmers in their own domestic market.

Further, because Mexico had to drop its tariffs on goods im-
ported from the U.S., the government's tax revenues declined ad-
versely affecting its public expenditure programme on education,
housing and other social welfare programmes.
CARICOM countries would face similar problems unless the
FTA was carefully negotiated.
In the cases of Antigua and Barbuda, and The Bahamas whose
economies are almost entirely reliant on services, particularly tour-
ism and financial services, they would hardly benefit from duty
free entry to the U.S. market for goods.
Conversely, their governments would suffer a significant loss
of revenue from lowering tariffs on imports from the U.S.
But, other CARICOM countries such as Belize, Jamaica,
Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago, could find advantage in se-
curing duty-free entry to the U.S. market for certain commodi-
Having said that, the point should also be made that already,
without an FTA, many small farmers in CARICOM countries have
lost markets within their own countries because subsidized U.S.
farm products are delivered to Caribbean supermarkets and hotels
at prices that make it very difficult for local farmers to compete.
An FTA which requires CARICOM countries to lower tariffs
on imports of U.S. agricultural products would wipe out Carib-
bean small farmers altogether.
In all cases, CARICOM countries would want to set certain
basic criteria for negotiations with the U.S. These would include: a
means of imposing duties on products which the U.S. subsidies;

THE Association of Caribbean States (ACS) convened its first
meeting of Ministers of Tourism of the Greater Caribbean,
in response to a mandate issued by the ACS Heads of States
and/or Government at the 4th ACS Summit in Panama in July
The Ministerial Meeting which was held in Havana. Cuba. on
October 19, provided an opportunity for Tourism Ministers to ex-
change experiences and propose alternatives regarding tourism poli-
cies, aimed at increasing the contribution of tourism to the sustain-
able development of the Greater Caribbean.
In his opening remarks, ACS Secretary General Ruben Silic
Valdez reminded the delegations of the regional challenges to take
advantage of the tourism industry's ability to enrich the economies.
as well as the quality of life of communities, stating that "the ad-
equate use of our socio-cultural and environmental wealth of the
region and its transformation into economic wealth and citizens wel-

tions on U.S. imports of certain commodities such as sugar; and
access to U.S. capital as grants or as loans on soft terms to com-
pensate for opening up Caribbean markets (aid for trade).
None of these criteria would be easy to achieve unless the U.S.
was genuinely concerned with helping CARICOM countries to de-
velop and grow. If U.S. negotiators view an FTA with CARICOM
in the same way that they would regard an agreement with, say,
the European Union or South East Asian nations, then CARICOM
would do well to scral the idea before it starts.
What has to be established firmly in advance of negotiations
on a CARICOM-U.S. free trade agreement is that it would be de-
velopment oriented.
Of course, this is also the problem that the Caribbean faces in
its current negotiations with the European Union (EU) for Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreements (EPA's). Caribbean countries, like
their counterparts in Africa and the Pacific, feel that the EU is not
taking sufficient account of the development dimension of the EPA's.
And, at the even wider international level, the global negotia-
tions on trade rules, have stalled precisely because although devel-
oped countries promised at Doha in 2001 that these negotiations
would focus on development, they have done nothing of the sort.
This is not to,say that the U.S. could not adopt a more en-
lightened and ambitious approach to CARICOM countries. For,
the Caribbean is a very close neighbour, and what happens in the
Caribbean should matter to the U.S.
A genuine FTA with a strong development orientation would
help the small and vulnerable countries of CARICOM enormously.
Given the relative small size of their economies and their
exports, the U.S. would lose nothing by being generous and
would gain much in terms of showing concern for its
neighbours. (Responses to: ronaldsanders29@hotmail.com)

In the dialogue which followed, the meetingagreed on the need
to present a unified position on the issues that affect the future of
the Caribbean tourism industry. The Declaration of Havana on Tour-

The operation lasted for a week,

mandates of the ACS, among them, the establishment of the
Sustainable Tourism Zone of the Caribbean, the Regional
Network for Tourist Safety and Security, Training in the
official languages of the ACS, Multidestination Tourism and
Cruise ship Tourism. The meeting also agreed to include in
the declaration a paragraph expressing the position of the
Greater Caribbean with regard to policies being taken outside
the region that may affect Caribbean tourism.
The declaration recognized the tourism sector as one of the
most important sources of foreign direct investment and foreign ex-
change earnings, and welcomed initiatives under the ACS to estab-
lish tourism programmes with a view to increasing the number of
visitors to the region, in accordance with the concept of
With respect to the Sustainable Tourism Zone of the Carib-
bean (STZC), the declaration recognized that the STZC Conven-
tion creates the first sustainable tourism zone in the world.
A commitment was given to actively participate in the devel-
opment of the STZC Strategic Plan by including the main regional
issues such as crime: terrorism and drug trafficking; safety, secu-
rity and health; leakages from the tourism sector; linkages to other
sectors of the economy; disaster management and preparedness;
communication and tourism awareness; and management and plan-
ning capacity as part of national tourism development agendas and
for institutionalising the process at the national level.
The declaration exhorted the relevant public and private sector
organizations and entities operating in the cruise tourism sector to
ensure greater regional dialogue and to consider the possibility of
establishing an Association of Caribbean Cruise Ship Destinations.
as this would contribute to a greater degree of leverage in discus-
sions with the cruise industry.
The importance of policy level initiatives to drive the process
for the dissemination of languages among member states was also
reflected in the document which stated, "We underscore the impor-
tance of language in the understanding of cultures, and the poten-
tial benefits to regional trade in goods and services."
Reference was made to the importance of the region's image as
a safe haven for tourists, and the need to increase tourist confi-
dence and safety in visiting the Greater Caribbean destinations.
The declaration committed countries to "holding internal con-
sultations with the relevant authorities in relation to the process of
establishing the Regional Network on Tourist Safety and Security
in accordance with the institutional framework of each country".
Multidestination tourism was highlighted as a viable niche mar-
ket strategy and as having potential to be a major contributor to
the development of the STZC.
Special mention was made of the initiative to declare the Car-
ibbean Sea as a special area in the context of Sustainable Develop-
ment, with specific reference to the Western Hemisphere Travel
Given the possible negative impact to the tourism industry of
the Greater Caribbean region by policy measures that are being
adopted by countries outside the region, the declaration called on
the ACS member states and associate members to engage in dia-
logue and coordination of strategies in formulating common re-
sponses to measures such as this and to minimise their impact.

It's difficult because of the

more liberal, the reading public

SPREADING THE WORD: Staff of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation who are
members of the Nursing Degree Programme, help community members to information
brochures at the Holy Spirit community health fair.

HEALTHY ADVICE: Bishop Francis Alleyne, fourth from left, and Health Minister, Dr. Leslie
Ramsammy, centre, with parishioners at the Holy Spirit community health fair.

Ramsammy gives diabetes commitment

HEALTH Minister, Dr. Leslie
Ramsammy has made a firm
commitment to help residents
of North Ruimveldt in
Georgetown, through the
Holy Spirit Roman Catholic
parish, work towards control-
ling diabetes and hyperten-
Ramsammy gave the com-
mitment two Saturdays ago
while opening a community
health fair staged by the parish
on the church lawns at 2902
Well Road, North Ruimveldt.
The Health Minister con-
gratulated the parishioners for

taking the initiative in support
of healthy lifestyles and gave
them simple but useful tips to
ensure healthier living.
Noting that diabetes and
hypertension were two chronic
diseases causing major health
concern, he urged the commu-
nity to pay attention to these.
On this note, Ramsammy
committed to having his minis-
try train a batch of young
people who will be identified by
the parish, to test for hyperten-
sion and diabetes.
He also promised that the
first set of glucometers (blood-

sugar testing instruments) and
sphygmanometers (blood pres-
sure testing) kits would be
made available to them free of
However, community
members using the service
would be required to pay a
small fee towards the acquisi-
tion of the blood sugar testing
kits, he said.
And offering suggestions on
ways of monitoring diabetes.
Ramsammy called on residents
to walk more since exercise is a
means of controlling diabetes.
He also encouraged the use of

DEC salt to prevent filarialsis
and dental screening as good
health oral health practice.
Bishop Francis Alleyne,
Bishop of Georgetown, who
delivered the special blessing,
acknowledged and expressed
appreciation for the work of
health care providers.
He called on those gathered
to inculcate a greater awareness
of what constitutes healthy liv-
ing and live out what is best for
them to keep ailments at bay.
Bishop Alleyne pointed to
the use of excessive sugars, ad-
ditives and colourings to foods.

adding that these can have ad-
verse side effects.
The fair which, had as its
theme, "A healthy community

(Experts at the climate change conference in
Nairobi, Kenya, agree that radical action is required,
yet the political response has fallen short. Rod
Harbinson explains why the summit has been a let-
down for developing countries, and warns of a
looming climate communication crisis.)

CONSIDERING the extent of
the climate change crisis de-
scribed by the recent Stern
report, the lack of urgency at
the climate change summit
in Nairobi has been marked.
The conference has re-
mained impervious to the natu-
ral calamities taking place on its
doorstep. with widespread
flooding in Kenya and Ethiopia
leading to tragic loss of life and
livelihoods. But most delegates
do admit that this year some-
thing has changed.
"Climate change has become
a palpable reality and not just a
future projection," said the del-
egate from Jordan reflecting the
mood that climate change is here
and is happening now, a posi-
tion few are prepared any longer
to deny.
Kenyan President Mwai
Kibaki voiced the urgency of the
situation: "Tackling climate
change is not a matter of choice.
It is an imperative if we are to
continue life on this planet."
Most experts at the summit
(which ended Friday) say that
radical action is required within
ten years or we can forget about
a future for much of humanity
and a large percentage of life on
earth. With such high stakes in-
creasingly recognized, the wide-
spread 'wait and see' stance has
caused surprise and frustration
amongst obs-rvers.
On the hArd issue of fram-
ing a more robust reduction of
emissions after the current com-
mitment period expires in 2012,
it seems that no country is will-
ing to sign up first for fear of
revealing their negotiating hand,
a situation UN Secretary-Gen-
eral Kofi Annan described as
The post-Kyoto agreement
is supposed to conclude by
2009 to leave three years for
implementation. By then, six of
those critical ten years will be
used up, leaving only four years
for the world to throw.its rap-
idly rising greenhouse gas emis-
sions into reverse and cut them
by a staggering 80 per cent the
amount needed to stabilise the
warmifig trend according to the
Stern Report.
In comparison the Kyoto
Protocol, agreed nearly ten
years ago, sets a humble five
per cent target. In fact, the
emissions of many

industrialized countries are ac-
tually increasing.
Frustration at the slow pace
of change has led some to seek
other policy avenues. UInsu-
all3, business and civil society
share exasperation at the miles
of red tape placed around every
project investment by the
Protocol's notoriously complex
labyrinth of rules.
The Clean Development
Mechanism (CDM) is sup-
posed to help poor countries
develop by giving rich nations
the option to buy emissions
credits in projects in developing
countries at a cheaper price than
costly changes to industrial
plants at home.
But Anders Wurman, Mem-
ber of the European Parliament,
said: "The problem we face is
that the UN process is so slow
and complicated and everything
goes at a snail's pace." Wurman,
who is involved in a large refor-
estation project in Colombia
added, "we decided not to in-
volve the CDM because it is so
complicated and costly".

Africa left out
A notable embarrassment
for proponents of the CDM is
that only nine projects are
taking place in Africa out of
the 408 approved globally,
with most going to relatively
rich developing countries like
China, India and Brazil. They
have the capacity to engage ex-
pensive consultants in the pa-
perwork, unlike most African
A new UN partnership pre-
sented at the meeting 'The
Nairobi Framework' aims to
address the situation by helping
governments to access CDM
funds. This means that "sub-Sa-
haran Africa and other poor
countries can have their fair
share of carbon finance," accord-
ing to UN spokesman, Olav
Critics say the CDM
mechanism is missing out the
countries most in need of the
sustainable development which
the CDM is supposed to de-
liver. "It's a market-based sys-
tem and Africa is not the place
that foreign direct investment
goes," said Janos Pasztor, of-
ficer in charge of the CDM at

BRAMPTON, Ontario,

Cruise, Holmes marry in Italian castle

By Silvia Aloisi

BRACCIANO, Italy, (Reuters)
Actors Tom Cruise and
Katie Holmes were married
in a medieval castle near
Rome yesterday in a much-
anticipated ceremony at-
tended b3 some of
Hollyw good's biggest stars.
Frenzied excitement in the
vrun-up to the wedding gave
a a%& Ito disappointment among
Ihrongs of onlookers and
paparazzi waiting outside the
lakeside venue once word spread
that the wedding was over.

Details of the ceremony
presided by a Scientologist mlin-

Cruise's spokesman confirmed
the couple exchanged vows. It
took place behind the walls of
a fortress surrounded by a 10-
metre (yard) high wall and
manned by snipers and body-
guards Candles lined the en-
trance to the castle, its towers
and windows.
The twice-divorced Cruise
is an ardent follower of the
church founded by science-fic-
lion writer L. Ron Hubbard.
Holmes was raised a Catholic.
Hollywood stars including

Jennifer Lopez and husband

The cost of the event \was
estimated at over 2 million cu-
ros ($2.5 million). The pair's
outfits were designed by Giorgio
Armani, who also created the
bride's bouquet.
Cruise, wearing sunglasses,
waved to the crowd as he ar-
rived in a black Mercedes in the
afternoon. Holmes earlier ar-
rived clutching their baby
daughter Suri in her arms, then
briefly appeared at a castle
window when Cruise's vehicle
pulled up.
Holmes, 27, gave birth to
their baby daughter in April.
Cruise, 44, also has two older
children adopted during his
marriage to Nicole Kidman.

Actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were married in a medieval castle near Rome yesterday

The wedding ended a week
of Hollywood mania that had
swept Italy and transformed the
sleepy town 40 km (25 miles)
north of the Italian capital into
a hotbed of media activity. Sat-
ellite TV trucks stood on the
streets underneath the castle
while shops were festooned
with balloons and other decora-

said Paola Iela, a 34-year-old

Tom Cruise since 1 was a teen-
ager. I think he's too sexy."
Fans started gathering in the
main square facing the
Odescalchi castle early in the
day, though a downpour de-
terred some in the afternoon.
Residents looked out from their
balconies, from some of which

hung the American tlag.
Photographers with long
lenses stool perilously on win-
dow ledges at the top of a build-
ing overlooking the castle,
where the mayor charged 1,000
euros ($1,278) for each posi-
tion. A helicopter carrying a TV
crew clattered overhead.
The town was closed to
traffic early yesterday.
Pictures of the pair and
goodwill messages in English

were displayed all over town.
"Best wishes for your fairy
tale." read one message in a bar.
A cake shop had a wedding cake
in its window with "Tom and
Katie" written in icing while
restaurants named menus and
dishes like risotto after the pair.

"You have to bear in mind the buyers the industrialized coun-
tries. They want to buy the lowest possible cost projects and most
of these are in big developing countries. It's much more difficult to
set up in Africa," he added.
Critics of the CDM point out that the market mechanism cre-
ates a race to the bottom as buyers seek the cheapest possible car-
bon credits. The CDM equivalent of a pile-it-high bargain base-
ment in carbon is a large-scale project, like an industrial tree planta-
tion, which lacks the more considered appreciation of local needs
found in small projects designed from the ground up.
The CDM is strict on counting carbon a notoriously difficult
exercise, which can prove prohibitively expensive for small local
projects. Simone Lovera of the Global Forest Coalition pointed out
that "small projects generally cost much more than the current market
cost of the carbon saved", bringing into question the viability of
small-scale projects.
Lovera explained that there is a tension in the carbon trading
system between a fluctuating market price for carbon and the need
for small projects to have a steady funding stream to ensure their
Forests cleared for timber and ranching contribute 20 per cent
of global carbon emissions. But natural forests are not included in
the Kyoto Protocol.
Papua New Guinea and Costa Rica say forests should be in,
and that rich countries should pay to keep them intact. Anders
Wiurman. supporter of the proposal, said: "As long as forests don't
have a value it will be difficult to avoid deforestation".
Ian Swingland from Sustainable Forest Management has done
the sums based on the current rate of deforestation of 12 million
hectares globally: "The annual required payout at US$4.000 per
hectare would total $48 billion," he said.
Others say this is an under-estimate, and that the best way to
avoid tropical deforestation is to give land rights to its traditional
custodians indigenous peoples.
Marcial Arias Garcia of the South American Kuna People. with
the International Alliance of Indigenous Peoples, said: "If you are
talking about paying, we have to be in the middle of whatever they
want to do in our lands".
"I think we need to persuade the conference to embrace for-
ests," said Wangari Maathai, lauded environmentalist of the Kenyan
Greenbelt Movement. "One of the few things that individuals can
do is plant trees," she said, announcing the 'billion trees campaign'.

Communication crisis
The jargon-laden negotiations led one civil society representa-
tive to comment that: "acronyms are killing the planet".
With experts themselves now choosing to sit outside meeting
rooms because even they are failing to understand what is being
discussed, the situation appears to be reaching a Kafkaesque crisis
in communication which observers say the planet can ill afford at
this point in time.
CDM spokesman Janos Pasztor, said that they are trying to
address the information overload: "There are a lot of decisions and
keeping track of this is mind boggling". His secretariat is working
on an online catalogue of all the decisions made.
Effective participation in the negotiations has been limited to
an elite of specialists, leading to concern that urgent messages are
failing to spread. Dr Bettina Wittneben of Erasmus University, Hol-
land commented: "It doesn't make any sense any more what people
are saying here".
"It is important to ensure that information on climate change is
available in Africa," President Kibaki told the summit.
At a Panos East Africa meeting journalists committed to tell
stories about climate change that appeal to newspaper readers. In-
dicators show that much of Africa is in the dark about climate
But Africa is not the only region suffering this problem accord-
ing to scholar Liisa Antilla: "There is a crisis of misinformation in
the United States press about climate change," she said, citing her
research study which looked at the way misinformation has been
successfully spread by those with vested interests, like oil compa-
If the current level of progress remains the same over the next
ten years, the UN climate change convention is unlikely to hit its
goal of stopping the global warming trend. Those that remain en-
gaged place their faith in this international forum as the best hope
of finding a common solution.
This year delegates articulated the urgency confronting the world
clearer than ever before. Yet the political response fell short. Pun-
dits of political change have long said that a disaster is required
before people will act. This year we have the disaster but the ac-
tion has failed to follow.
Leon Charles, climate change project coordinator for the island
of Grenada succinctly summed up the problem: "If we do not exist
then we cannot develop".
** Rod Harbinson is head of Panos London's environment
programme www.panos.org
** For twenty years Panos has been working with the me-
dia and other communicators to foster debate on under-re-
ported, misrepresented or misunderstood development issues.
We believe that only by including the voices and views of those
most affected by these issues usually the poorest and most
marginalised people in society will lasting solutions be found.

World champions England

end dismal losing streak

By John Mehaffey

LONDON, England (Reuters)
- World rugby champions En-
gland ended their dismal los-
ing streak yesterday when
they squeezed out a 23-21 win
over an inexperienced South
Africa side in the first of two
tests at Twickenham.
The relief on the face of
coach Andy Robinson and the
delight of captain Martin Corry
were evident after replacement
prop Phil Vickery bulldozed his
way over the line in the dying
minutes for the winning try.
Both men will know their
jobs are far from safe when the
November international season
concludes next weekend.
But they also know their
side is not now officially the
worst in the 135-year history of
English international rugby after
they equalled the previous los-
ing streak of seven successive
defeats by losing to Argentina
last weekend.
Argentina continued their
winning ways and strengthened
their case for a place in either
the Six Nations or Tri-Nations
championships with a 23-16
win over Italy in Rome.
Only the New Zealand All
Blacks, who were playing
France at the Stade de France
last evening, have beaten the
Pumas this year.
In yesterday's other inter-
national, Scotland survived a

second half rally from the Pa-
cific Islanders to win 34-22 at
The Scots scored four tries
in the first half to take a 31-5
lead at the break but added only
a drop goal from Marcus Di
Rollo in the second.

England's victory was not
pretty and owed much to the
naivety of an experimental
Springbok side who let slip an
eight-point second half lead.
The England passing was
ponderous, their kicking
from hand woeful and there
was a general lack of dyna-
mism on the loose.
South Africa flyhalf Butch
James scored a slick opportun-
ist try late in the first half and
laid on another early in the sec-
ond with a clever chip to gift
winger Akona Ndungane his
first test score.
The arrival of replacements
Vickery, Andy Goode, Lewis
Moody, Chris Jones and Lee
Mears invigorated England.
Winger Mark Cueto scored
an opportunist try and Vickery
sealed a much-needed victory as
the Springboks desperately de-
fended their line.
"It was about that last 20
minutes, how we lifted the
tempo, how the crowd re-
sponded," Robinson told a
news conference.

"Everyone kept their nerve;
Andy Goode went on and was
running the show in the last 20
In Rome, Italy squandered
a first-half lead for the sixth time
this year, including last
weekend's loss to Australia.
Italy were 9-3 up at half-
time, thanks to three penalties
by fullback David Bortolussi,
before tries by inside centre
Miguel Avramovic and flyhalf
Federico Todeschini, who added
13 points with the boot, sealed

an Argentine victory.
Scotland looked a class side
in the first half against the Pa-
cific Islanders, who were slow
to find their combinations and
outjumped in the lineouts.
But a try to the Islanders'
leading player, left wing Rupeni
Caucaunibuca shortly before the
interval, lifted their spirits.
Centre Kameli Ratovou
scored at each end of the second
half and lock Daniel Leo added
another as Scotland were forced
onto the defensive.

Women eye 2010


Games entry
NEW DELHI IIndia, (Reuters). The International Boxing
Association (ABA) plans to use the world women's cham-
pionship beginning tomorrow, to press for inclusion in the
2010 Commonwealth Game* in New Delhi.
AIBA secretary-general Caner Doganeli told reporters yes-
terday: "The number of countries taking part in women's box-
ing is increasing and we will show everyone how women's box-
ing is more popular than men's."
Around 180 women boxers from 32 nations, including
Ukraine, China, Russia, Turkey, hosts India and United States,
are taking part in all 13 weight categories in the fourth edition
of the event which ends on Thursday.
Doganeli said: "We have hosted three successful
women's world championships and if included in the Com-
monwealth Games, the International Olympic Committee
will understand how important women's boxing is."

From back page

for the first time.
The 21-year-old defender
who had an impressive debut
game for Guyana last Wednes-
day in T&T against pro side W
Connection confidently told
Chronicle Sport, 'I would ex-
pect no less than three victories
in our upcoming competition. I
think we have a great team that
could do just as well as we did
in the first round.'
'The hard work of the play-
ers and the talent level of the
team have impressed me most.
They are a bunch of very tal-
ented players who I feel could
definitely play in the US where
I play." boasted 'JP' of his new-
est team mates.
The articulate Rodrigues
said that he did not know what
to expect when he was coming
to the region to join the squad
in T&T, but was quick to add
that the players made a very
good impression on him the first
"I must say they accepted
me and made me feel at home
and this has made it easy for me
to fit in and feel as part of the
"This is definitely a new ex-
perience for me since I was born
and raised in Florida, but it feels
good. It's good to be home."
Rodrigues said with a broad
England-born Lloyd, son of
former West Indies captain
Clive Lloyd, is just as im-
pressed as 'JP' with his new

team mates, "I have been im-
pressed with the talent the team
possess. Right from the onset I
have been impressed with the
way coach Shabazz and staff
have been handling things.
Preparations have really gone
well so far and everything seems
so professional. I am definitely
impressed." the lanky goal-
keeper told Chronicle Sport
soon after clearing Immigration
and Customs at the Cheddi
Jagan International Airport.
Lloyd, who also made
his debut in T&T last
Wednesday, says the expe-
rience so far has been very
enjoyable and he knows
that the team can't wait for
Friday when they will
kick-start their second
round campaign, "We are
confident of doing well."
Lloyd assured.
Also expressing similar sen-
timents was former national for-
ward/midfielder Collie 'Hitman'
Hercules, who has been recalled
to national duties after an ab-
sence of five years.
"The team is in high spirits
and we are ready. For me, I am
ready and excited to go out and
perform. I can't wait to shut up
my critics."
The 'Hitman' was also loud
in praises for the work done by
the coaching staff and the pro-
fessional attitude of the players
which he said was the difference
between this side and former
national sides of which he was
a part.
The full contingent

which arrived yesterday are
Goalkeepers Richard
Reynolds, Andrew Durant
and Jason Lloyd; defenders -
Kelvin Mckenzie, Orlando
Gilgeous and John
Rodrigues; Midfielders An-
drew Murray Jr, Shawn
Beveney, Gregory

The Guyana Rugby Foot-
ball Union (GRFU) will be field-
ing a team in the annual Carib
International tournament of
Trinidad & Tobago, fixed for
next month, but Lewis said that
team might be a second line-up.
"Most likely the six play-
ers will be playing in the West
Indies side, so we will have to
fall back on our other players in
waiting. And that team will have
all the players from the school
system, so it will still be a I
strong force to contend with w
and should do well in the tour-
nament." (
Guyana dominated the
West Indies Under-18 champi-
onships for the past three years,
winning three consecutive titles,
surrendering it at home in Au- /
gust, on what some persons
contend was a technicality.

against the USA but lost and in
so doing gave up the title based I

and that was his first goal.
But 17 minutes later the
leaders were level with Rooney
scoring his sixth league goal of
the season and the striker, who
scored England's goal in the
Netherlands in midweek, se-
cured United the points with a
75th minute winner.
Manchester United manager
Alex Ferguson told Sky Sports

News: "They scored an early
goal and made it difficult for us,
but getting a goal back before
halftime gave us confidence, and
the patience to wait."
At Stamford Bridge, Geremi
scored his first goal since Octo-
ber 2005 with a superbly taken
22nd-minute free kick awarded

after Danny Gabbidon fouled
Didier Drogba.
It was enough to give
Chelsea all three points and keep
the Hammers firmly entrenched
in the battle for survival at the
wrong end of the table.
Chelsea manager Jose
Mourinho said: "I think we de-
served the points but at the same
time I think West Ham gave us

a game.
"Normally we should score a
second goal and kill the game, but
it was a good game because both
teams played with a good attitude.
West Ham did not come here to get
just one point."
While Manchester United
and Chelsea were both winning,
Arsenal were forced to settle for
a draw at the Emirates Stadium

Bell and Collingwood

lift England ahead

of Ashes

SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters)
- Ian Bell made 132 and Paul
Collingwood 80 on the second
day of England's tour game
against South Australia yes-
terday, raising the team's
spirits ahead of next week's
first Ashes Test in Brisbane.
The pair shared a fourth-
wicket partnership of 178 to
rescue the tourists from a shaky
start at Adelaide Oval to reach
stumps at 303 for six in reply
to South Australia's 247-7 de-
Kevin Pieterson also chipped
in with a quick 32 before he was
bowled by Jason Gillespie in the
last session, leaving England cap-
tain Andrew Flintoff (six) and
wicketkeeper Geraint Jones (14)
ready to resume on today's third
and final day.
'That is the strength of this
side, we've got a lot of charac-
ter," Flintoff told reporters in

"Whoever's asked to do the
job has performed and done it
and just got on with it. In this
game so far that's happened and
hopefully next week it will as
England's position at the close
was much better than they might
have expected after they resumed
on 24-1, but lost nightwatchman
Matthew Hoggard for 10 then new
opener Alastair Cook for 12 to
slump to 34-3.
Hoggard failed to add to his
overnight score when he nicked
an outswinger from South
Australia's express paceman
Shaun Tait to wicketkeeper
Shane Deitz.
Then Cook, promoted to
opener when Marcus
Trescothick walked out on the
team this week after a bout of
depression, was also caught be-
hind when he tried to play a de-

fensive shot off Gillespie and
got a thick edge.

Bell and Collingwood, who
are certain to play in next
week's first Test, survived a
hostile spell from Tait and
Gillespie before lunch then

session when South Australia
decided to rest their frontline
pacemen and bowl spinners.

Collingwood, who came in
above Pietersen in a possible
sneak preview to the batting
line-up for Brisbane, was the
first to reach his half-century
but fell 20 short of his hundred
with the total on 212 when he
edged leg-spinner Dan Cullen to
Bell, who made a duck in his
only previous innings on tour,
struck 12 fours and a six in his
hundred before he was eventually
caught by South Australian skip-
per Darren Lehmann off Tait.
With the wicket, the young
paceman claimed his third vic-
tim of the innings to boost his
chances of making the Austra-
lian starting line-up for
Brisbane, before he left the field
with cramp.
"Belly's been in nice
touch, he's looked good in
the nets," Flintoff said.
"He didn't score any runs
in Sydney (against New South
Wales) but he's been hitting the
ball nicely.
"He played a great knock
today along with Paul.
"Paul's been shoved up to
number four a little bit earlier
than what he's done in the past,
but he's responded well to it.
He adapts quickly, does Paul. It
was a good 80."
England paceman Steve
Harmison, who withdrew from
the match with a side strain,
also provided the tourists with
a boost when he spent more
than 15 minutes bowling in the
nets before the start of the day's
play, gradually building to near
full speed.
Flintoff said Harmison had
pulled up well after his work-
out but would get a better indi-
cation of his fitness after he
wakes up this morning.
"Injuries for fast bowlers
are part and parcel of the job,
so we just have to see what
happens tomorrow morning,"
Flintoff said.

Federer to meet Blake

in Masters Cup final

By Nick Mulvenney
SHANGHAI, (Reuters) -
Roger Federer put world
number two Rafael Nadal in
his place by beating the
Spaniard 6-4,7-5 yesterday to
set up a Masters Cup tennis
final against American James
Blake was the last man to
qualify for the tournament but
needed only 76 minutes to
thrash Argentina's defending
champion David Nalbandian 6-
4, 6-1 and reach the final in his
first appearance at the $4.45-
million event.
Federer, champion in 2003
and 2004 and losing finalist last
year, will be playing his fourth
Masters Cup final in a row af-
ter producing some majestic
tennis to get past the man re-
sponsible for four of his five de-
feats in 2006.
"It was an excellent match
with high quality." said Federer,
who extended his winning


streak to 28 matches.
"I'm happy I came through
because these are the matches
I'm waiting for, to beat the best
after me. So to beat him in the
last one of the season is obvi-
ously fantastic for me.
"I definitely feel like I've
learned a few things and maybe
now it's a little more up to him
to change his game."
Nadal, who had lost to
Federer in their most recent
meeting in the Wimbledon fi-
nal, put everything he had
into the match but was always
chasing the world number
one after being broken in his
first service game.
"I'm happy with my game
and my tournament," said the
20-year-old Spaniard. "He
started unbelievably ... (but) I
was not so far away from him
The 25-year-old Swiss
wrapped up the contest with a
sublime running crosscourt win-
ner from the tightest of angles
on his third match point after
one hour 53 minutes.
Fcederer was delighted at the
shot which defeated the man
who denied him a Grand Slam
in the French Open final, and
his normally cool demeanour
deserted Iiiin as he fell to his
knees before punching the air in
"It was a good feeling,"
he said. "And usually I have
that after finals. I rarely fin-
ish off matches like this, so
it was nice."

Demerara and Berbice face

off in El Dorado final today

By Vemen Walter

BOTH Demerara and Berbice
have expressed confidence
going into today's final of the
2006 El Dorado 50-overs se-
nior Inter-county cricket tour-
nament, set for the Albion
Community Centre ground
in Berbice.
Speaking with Chronicle
Sport yesterday, Demerara's
manager Robert 'Pacer' Adonis
disclosed that his charges are in
no doubt of retaining their title,
although they will not be tak-
ing on the Berbicians lightly.
"We are very positive that
we will come out trumps in this
game, but we will not allow
complacency to step in, since
Berbice are always a good team,


even though, they will be with-
out the services of three of their
Adonis, a former Guyana
fast bowler pointed out that like
Berbice, his team will be weak-
ened with the unavailability of
some of their established play-
ers, which is obviously a set-
back but in no way should that
deter Demerara from striving to
"Yes, at least four of our
'big guns', in that ofShivnarine
Chanderpaul, Ramnaresh
Sarwan, Travis Dowlin and

Lennox Cush are not around but
once we could correct our weak
areas, everything shouldfall into
Our bowling appears rea-
sonably good and although the
pitches that we played on dur-
ing the tournament so far
weren't conducive to proper
stroke play, the batting seems
fairly alright, while the field-
ing is of utmost concern,
which we hope will improve".
Sharing similar sentiments
as did Adonis, Berbice coach
Adrian Amsterdam said that his
team have no reason why they
cannot beat Demerara, despite
being soundly thrashed by eight
wickets when the two teams
met earlier in the tournament.
"They had the better of us
at Everest but this is a new game
and once we play to the best of
our ability, we will come out
victorious. We will be placing
lots of emphasis on our batting,
while it is likely that we will
strengthen out bowling, espe-
cially in the spin department".
Former Under-19 leg-spin-
ner Davendra Bishoo has been
brought into the Berbice 14 -
the only change in place of
opening batsman Sewnarine
Chattergoon, who is among four
Guyanese, currently encamped
with the West Indies 'A' team
in Trinidad and Tobago -
Narsingh Deonarine, Dowlin
and Esaun Crandon are the oth-
Surprisingly, there is still
no place for all-rounder
Damodar Daesrath after the
former Guyana captain was
controversially omitted for
the squad for the preliminary
stages, failing to attend a net
The 21-year-old Bishoo,
the leading wicket-taker in
Berbice's first division cricket
season this year, represented
Berbice last year in a solitary
match against Essequibo.
It is therefore likely that the
home team may very well opt

for two specialist leg-spinners,
with Bishoo, accompanying
Mahendra Nagamootoo in the
final eleven.
In Chattergoon's ab-
sence, Under-19 opener Rich-
ard Ramdeen, should make
his debut at this level, with

the explosive Royston
Crandon partnering him at
the top of the order.
Maxie De Jonge with scores
of 0 and 4 in the previous two
matches, may very well lose his
place this time around, making
way for the aggressive Imran
Khan left out in the match
against Essequibo to have an-
other chance to prove his worth.
Berbice were only able to
produce scores of 169 for nine
against Demerara and 172 for
eight against Essequibo in the
preceding matches with the top
order being vulnerable on both
Homchand Pooran has
been the only batsman with
a half-century while left-
hander Assad Fudadin has
failed to make use of a
couple of useful starts.
All-rounder Nagamootoo
has also weighed in important
runs in the lower order but the
likes of skipper Andre Percival,
Gajanand Singh, Khan and
Crandon will also have to get
among the runs, to make up for
the loss of West Indies players

DUBLIN, Ireland (Reuters) -
A new scrummaging rule will
be introduced to rugby union
next year in a bid to improve
safety, the International
Rugby Board (IRB) an-
nounced on Friday.
The new IRB Council law
will see a four-stage "crouch,
touch, pause, engage" process
that will bring packs closer and
cut the force on impact when it
is implemented on January 1.
The world governing body
has reviewed the safety of the
scrum after recommendations
by its medical committee al-
though it rejected calls to follow
rugby league and "de-power"
the scrum.
The key change to the
present sequence is that the two
props will have to touch their
opponent's shoulder. Currently,
the two packs often charge at

each other from up to three feet
Front rows will also be prohib-
ited from engaging with their head
and shoulders lower than their hips
in abid to reduce the number of col-
lapsed scrums while keeping set-
pieces competitive.
IRB chairman Dr Syd
Millar, quoted on the official
IRB Web site, said the con-
tested serum remained central to
the sport.

"An essential element of
rugby is its physicality. This
has to be appropriately bal-
anced with the welfare of par-
ticipating players and the IRB
continues to take such issues
very seriously.
"The IRB believes that the
contested scrum is an integral
part of the game and that rugby

is unique in that its playing
charter provides the opportu-
nity for individuals of all shapes
and sizes to play the game,"
said Millar.
He added, however, that ex-
pert medical and technical ad-
vice had indicated it was appro-
priate for the game to adopt a
"less vigorous scrum engage-
ment sequence".
Former England front row
forward Jason Leonard, who
helped the IRB review the
scrum, told the Web site: "This
new engagement sequence will
standardise the distance the two
sets of forwards are apart, re-
duce the collision at engagement
and will assist in ensuring thai
both sets of forwards are at the
best horizontal height possible.
"This is crucial to the
successful engagement of the

Deonarine and Chattergoon, if
Berbice are going to pose a sub-
stantive total on an Albion track
that should favour batting.
Depending heavily on spin,
Berbice, who trounced
Demerara by six wickets, the
last time the teams met at
Albion, in the 2004 final and
with three titles within the last
five years, will be pinning their
hopes on Nagamootoo, and
Bishoo together with off-spin-
ners Imran Jaferally, Percival and
Crandon, to do the trick with
the ball.
With no Esaun Crandon, the
steady medium pacer Paul
Wintz or Fudadin could work
ideal, sharing the new ball in tan-
dem with Royston Crandon.
Defening champions
Demarara on the other hand,
having defeated Berbice by
six wickets in last year's fi-
nal at Skeldon on the back of

a half-century from
Chanderpaul, will for sure
start as favourites.
The Reon King-led team,
possesses a formidable batting
line-up that comprises national
opener Krishna Arjune, the el-
egant Leon Johnson, Azeemul
Haniff, teenager Steven Jacobs,
Darwin Christian, Orin Forde
and Dion Ferrier, all of whom
are capable of scoring heavily.
Their bowling seems also
competent with the experienced
King and fellow Guyana speed-
ster Rayon Griffith leading from
in front.
They will be backed up by
another fast bowler in Garfield
Morris while off-spinners
Zaheer Mohammed, Ferrier
Forde and the leg-spin of
Johnson, will take care of the
slower stuff.
Play starts at 09:30 h with
umpires Colin Alfred and

Clyde Duncan with Clement
Brusch as standby.
Teams: Demerara Reon
King (captain), Derwin Chris-
tian, Krishna Arjune, Leon
Johnson, Steven Jacobs,
Azeemul Haniff, Zaheer
Mohammed, Rayon Griffith,
Sauid Drepaul, Garfield Morris,
Orin Forde, Christopher
Barnwell, Dion Ferrier, Krishna

ert Adonis with Orin Bailey as

'I Think I Love Batting More Now'

(IMRAN KHAN inter-
CHANDERPAUL on the eve
of his 100th Test appear-

SHIVNARINE Chanderpaul
almost seamlessly reaches
the 100 landmark in Test
cricket today in Multan
when the West Indies take on
Pakistan. Multan's current
smoggy conditions and low
key atmosphere is not a place
that inspires celebration.
Some will argue that neither
does Chanderpaul but that
would be to selectively mis-
judge a man who is as versatile
as a Swiss Army knife that can
fetch the morning newspapers.
Chanderpaul's renowned
grafting and patience at the
wicket is a demonstration of his
passionate love for batting. It is
not an endeavour that he gravi-
tated to when the bright lights
first shone on him in 1994 but
one he fell in love with when he
was only a kid.
He credits that love as one
of the fundamental pillars for his
endurance in the game. It is
probably what has also re-
strained him from playing less
cautiously over the years.
The wise and the weary now
know that he has accumulated
enough innings of sheer brutality,
without warning or notice, to
cause the caution to be on the
bowler's behalf rather than his.
Chanderpaul started his in-
ternational Test career against

England on his home ground,
Bourda, and after 12 years in
the West Indies team has 6 617

fifties and an average in the mid-

achievement, the memorable
moments, the years in the

On how he feels about
the achievement:
It's obviously a great
achievement, to actually make it
to a hundred Tests, knowing
how my career has been with a
lot of injuries and a lot of ups
and downs it is very satisfying.
I feel happy to make it there
yet the game tomorrow is still
a Test match and you have to
go out there and play so your
mind has to be focused on go-
ing out there and playing an-
other game.
You can't worry about
what number it is, you have to
go out and play the game and
play hard like always. One hun-
dred Test matches was a goal I

WHEN the National rugby
team captured Guyana's first
senior regional title, they
landed two coveted trophies -
one from the West Indies
Rugby Union (W1RU) and the
other front the North America
& West Indies Rugby Associa-
tion (NAWIRA).
Manager John Lewis. yes-
terday. told Chronicle Sport that
the NAW1RA trophy was the
main prize, but because it was
thought that the North Ameri-
cans would always take away
!he top pi the WIRI1 I-
phy was put ip so Ihe West
Indies teams could get some-
"So for the first time, ai
West Indies team won the
NAWIRA trophy. We also
claimed the WIRU trophy."

a game I remember with a smile.
The double hundred against
South Africa in front of my
home crowd at Bourda was also
enjoyable. One that I really en-
joyed as a young fella coming
up was the 303 against Jamaica
at Sabina Park. We were in a
rough position with a few top
order wickets gone when I came
in to bat and I started stroking
the ball nicely from the begin-
ning. I was also playing against
some quality bowlers including
Courtney Walsh and I ended up
scoring 180 before the close of
play that day and at about tea
time the next day I finished off
on 303.
On the disappointments:
Not being able to stay fit
enough to play throughout the
years. If I could have done with-
out those injuries and play on
more, that would have been
good. To go out of the game
with an injury and then come
back and restart is not easy.
On his favourite ground:
Bourda! Not only because
of the international cricket but
because I grew up playing
cricket there. I scored my first
Under-16 hundred at Bourda
and it went on after that. I
scored a lot of runs there as a
youth player including my first
Under-19 hundred against
Trinidad and Tobago in the
Northern Telecom tournament.
I also made my first class de-
but there, playing against the
Leeward Islands and I made 91
on a dangerous wicket in the
second innings.
On the two most difficult
bowlers he has had to contend
Wasim Akram: because of
his ability to swing the cricket
ball and also to seam off the
wicket. And Shane Warne be-
cause he turns the ball a long
way and he is one of those guys
who will work you out.
On whether being more
experienced makes it is
easier to bat:
When you're young it is
easier to come out and bat
freely with nothing on your
mind. Now you know more
about the game you feel more

Asked about the tremen-
dous success of the senior team,
Lewis acknowledged that the
develoqpient programpne w\as
now bearing fruit.
"Most of the players have
passed through the school sys-

mature, you feel a little more
confident in doing things, you
understand more about every-
thing that comes with the game.
These are the things that make
you a better player through the
good and bad times.
On the innings he en-
joyed watching:
.Brian (Lara) making 179
against England at the Oval was
a joy to watch. I enjoyed watch-
ing the 375 and all his other
great innings but being there
watching as a young fella how he
was scoring that 179 was a joy.
The way he stroked the
ball, the shots he played in the
innings was inspiring for me.
Another batter I like to look at
also is VVS Laxman because he
seems to have so much time to
stroke the ball. His wrist move-
ments, his placement, the way
he works'the ball off his legs and
into the gaps, it's inspiring for
any batter.
On what the game has
taught him:
In cricket and in life'you
have to be disciplined. It takes
a lot of determination and per-
severance to actually get where
you want to be, you cannot give
up; you have to keep trying,
keep working hard. You have to
keep fighting for what you want
because nobody is going to get
it for you. Even when you make
mistakes you cannot sit back
and relax, you have to get out
there and work on it and avoid
making the mistakes again.
Nothing is wrong with mis-
takes, it's good to make one or
two mistakes, you learn from
them and you get better.
On his passionate and ob-
vious love for batting:
As a kid I always liked bat-
ting. It is something I liked and
that helped me through my ca-
reer, liking batting and wanting
to bat all the time.
On whether he still loves
batting as much:
"You really ask that ques-
tion?" (Laughs) I think I love
batting more now.

Learn to be confident
What one single personality trait most makes you popular, at-
tractive and sexy? It's nothing to do with being tall, slim and beau-
tiful; it's everything to do with being confident. Countless studies
show that people are attracted to people with high self-esteem. If
a woman genuinely believes in herself not with the arrogance of
uncertainty, but with a calm inner security people are drawn to
her like a magnet!
It's pretty clear how a lack of confidence can drag you down;
look at these five dead giveaways:
1. The most obvious sign is that you don't feel good you
sometimes doubt yourself, maybe criticise yourself, feel pessimis-
tic, fight shy of challenges.
2. At work, you may down-rate your own abilities, feel you
let others out-perform you, or hold back from taking responsibil-
3. In love you can hesitate before committing yourself or
fall headlong for unsuitable partners because you don't feel you
deserve suitable ones.
4. You don't feel able to take from others because you don't
feel you deserve it. You may also give too much to others because
you feel you have to 'earn your keep'.
5. You may end up dulling the pain of low self-esteem by
unhealthy eating, drinking, drug use or sexual relationships.

What stops you being confident?
1. Negative early messages that you weren't loved, particu-
larly from parents or guardians, can leave you with a deep-rooted
and unshakable belief that you're worthless.
2. Childhood trauma, especially if you were abused, very ill
or separated from your parents for a while, can cut across the natural
development of your self-esteem and leave you 'stuck' at that
unconfident stage.
3. Bad treatment from childhood friends maybe being bul-
lied can mean you're nervous of other people and end up not
trusting anyone even yourself.
4. A major shake-up in adult life a relationship break-up,
career setback, even becoming a Mum or turning 30 can dent your
normal confidence and spiral you into self doubt.
5. Depression, which can be caused by imbalanced brain chemi-
cals, can also result in low self-esteem. This is a vicious circle -
because lowered self-esteem can then be caused by depression.

1) To start to turn this round and become self secure, you
first need to alter the basics, the way you approach life in general
2) Learn to think differently. When you fall into self-criti-
cism and unconfident thoughts, note them and change them to
positive thoughts. Tracking down the original life event that made
you think negatively for example, you believe you're ugly be-
cause the bullies told you so will make it
3) Learn to speak differently. If you pepper your talk with
self put-downs, you'll not only convince yourself you're not ca-
pable you'll convince others as well. Use 'I can' instead of 'I
can't', 'Next time I will' instead of 'If only I had'.
4) Try to stop judging yourself by what happens to you in
life, so you're not basing your confidence on outside events. It's
tempting to feel confident only when you do well or feel popular.
Confident people take the rough with the smooth, so that when
things go wrong in their lives they can rise above and deal with the
5) Be aware of when you are succeeding. Naturally confident
people take credit for things that go well... and put the problems
down to circumstance. So when you do something well, be friendly
to yourself and give yourself a pat on the back!
6) If you suspect that your lack of confidence is down to
some trauma or disaster in your life, get support from a coun-
sellor to work through the problem.

THIS month is Oral Health Month and it is being cel-
ebrated for the fifth consecutive year by the Ministry of
Health in collaboration with Colgate Palmolive. Our
theme this year is 'Good Oral Health Means Good Gen-
eral Health'. But while 'going to the dentist', is a familiar
phrase and hopefully, a regular habit whenever and wher-
ever the opportunity exists, there are people who, even if
they wish to 'go to the dentist', are unable to do so be-
cause of ill health, handicap or frailty. What is to become
of the housebound patients or those confined to medical
institutions who are physically and mentally incapable of
visiting a dental clinic? Should they be denied the privi-
lege of dental attention?
The maintenance or improvement of dental health for the
frail and functionally dependent, including the mentally re-
tarded, can be an especially challenging and difficulty effort.
This is particularly true for the growing number of chronically
ill elderly who reside in nursing home settings. For these indi-
viduals, provision of quality dental care goes to the root of tre-
mendously important issues surrounding chewing function and
the enjoyment of meals, aesthetics, social interactions, and the
pathological and sensory concerns associated with poor oral
Due to the widely observed difficulty of creating and oper-
ating an alternative dental delivery system for the less ambula-
tory, creative solutions are often required. The present trend is
to have a mobile dental clinic specifically intended to target
those who are permanently helpless. The dentist would then
go to visit the patient wherever he or she resides.
There are two methods of delivering dental treatment to
institutionalized patients. There is the mobile approach whereby
the specially built mobile dental van travels to the home, is
parked on the street outside, and the patient is brought out for
treatment in the van. There is such a facility in Guyana but it
is restricted to schools and community at this time. Then there

The Dentist Advises

is the portable system whereby the dentist takes his equip-
ment even in the bedroom of the patient. Clearly, the option of
a mobile dental van could be very expensive and inappropriate
in Guyana's context if we are to extend this on a widespread
Whenever a dentist treats a patient outside the dental of-
fice, even when full facilities are at hand, treatment solutions
can be limited or modified. In home visits, many techniques
have to be conditional and procedures may vary from those
taught to the dentist in dental school and those read in text-
This adaptive approach by the dentist in treating patients
at home is due in large part to the patients at themselves rather
than extant conditions. Statistics show that institutionalized per-
sons have a high incidence of clinically diagnosed dementia (a
mental disease), bladder or bowel incontinence, 25 per cent are
spoon fed, nearly 10 per cent are abusive and aggressive and
approximately seven per cent are bedridden.
The average cost for a portable dental clinic being sold
in the United States is the same as what the average car
from an auto dealer would cost here (about US$5,000). The
entire equipment can easily fit in the trunk of a car. De-
velopments in potable dental system technologies have pro-
duced a variety of effective options for the dental provider
to serve patients outside a traditional dental office. It is
only for those concerned to take advantage of these oppor-
tunities. Meanwhile, preventative methods should be se-
riously practised until the time comes when we can afford
to provide modern and adequate service to the confined and
physically constrained patient.

No. All medical should be submitted to NIS. However, for your 3 I
record, you can duplicate and keep a copy. Submission of
medical to NIS is not only important for receiving payment, but
also for establishing one's medical history. This is very important
in relation to continuous ailments (chronic illness) eg. Diabetes, I
High Blood Pressure and Asthma.

Having established a medical condition that is likely to be
continuous, remember one can always receive MedicalCre I

"Shortly after the adjournment.
Mr. Ramson reported to me that

The judge said that the

revenges taken upon persons for
what they have done in the

Mr. Ramson were a timid soul

Justice Patterson. who is

said that the facts of this case
dovetail the principles adum-

brated above. The conlemnor
has demonstrated the necessary
mens rea (guilty knowledge).
"The contempt was in-
tended to relate to the proceed-
ings between Ganga Persaud and
himself. I find that Adams was
peeved and upset over remarks
Mr. Ramson made, despite his
protestations to the contrary.
"Those remarks propelled
him to use the threatening lan-
guage to Mr. Ramson.
"The plain and ordinary in-
terpretation to draw from the
language used to Mr. Ramson
was that Adams sought revenge
for what Mr. Ramson had said
in Court in advocating his
client's cause.
"I find the contemnor
guilty of contempt of Court.

BE IN BONDAGE', written
by A. R. F. Webber was re-
leased in 1917. the year that
saw the official abolition of
immigrant labour from India
to British Guiana. This novel
was in the same vein as Ed-
ward Jenkins' 'Lutchmee and
Dilloo' published 1877 de-
scribing the bittersweet expe-
riences of East Indians in the
colony, exposing many of the
attendant ills of that slavery
by another name.
BONDAGE', A Tale of Indian
Indentures and Sunlit Western
Waters, falls into a significant
category of Guyanese first nov-



els. numlbering four between
1877 and 1917.
About this time, just after
the release of his first novel.
Webber tried his hands at po-
etry, some poems good
enough to be included in the
first collection of local verses,
'Guianese Poetry' edited by
N. E. Cameron in 1931.
Cameron explained how he
went to great trouble to per-
suade Webber to release his
work for publication in the
anthology because Webber
was of the opinion that hav-

ing his best poems appearing
first in a collection would af-
fect the eventual publication
of his own book of poetry. A
year before the anthology
came out, Cameron founded
the British Guiana Literary
Society of which Webber was
a member.

Webber believed in dialogue.
In his poem 'Guiana' he asked.
'Wouldst thou be great? /Then

truths. /Greatness is neither
born of intolerance nor schism,

saying a lot for a person not born in Guyana.
A. R. F. Webber was born on the island of Tobago on Janu-
ary 1, 1880, to James Francis Webber and Sarah nee Hope.
He married Beatrice Elizabeth Glasford, a union that produced
Ivy Forbes Webber and Edith Forbes Webber.
Some 20 years after he was born, he came to live in British
Guiana at a crucial and exciting period of its history. In his own
words, he described that era as not being 'jejune or insipid'. He was
a witness to many changes and innovations like the introduction of
the electric tram service, the 1905 and 1924 riots, the end to East
Indian Immigration, the first issue of $1 and $2 paper money,
educational reforms, the great rice embargo, glory days of sugar and
its greatest decline, and the 'abrogation of the 1891 Constitution'.
Webber's first taste of Guyana came with his introduction to
its commerce sector, working in the Berbice merchant firm of
Crosby and Forbes of which his uncle Forbes was a partner. There-
after, his rise in the public's eye was swift; next he became Secre-
tary to Chapman & Company. Webber then moved into the mining
sector, first as Company' s Secretary to Peter's Mine and an at-
tachment to Mara Mara Gold Company.
Another aspect of business he was involved was advertising.
first attached to the Daily Argosy and then Messrs. Booker Bros..
McConnell & Co.. Limited.
But the call to the printed word was great. This was where
Webber made the most telling contribution to this land.
In 1919, he was appointed acting editor of the Daily
Chronicle succeeding C. W. Marchant, gravitating to the

editorship position until 1925 when the paper went into liqui-
During this time, his popularity increased enough to earn him a
seat in the Combined Court as Financial Representative in 1921.
He was re-elected at the General Elections in 1926.
The New Daily Chronicle came into being in 1926 as the offi-
cial organ of the Popular Party with Webber as editor. The paper
was branded a 'sensationalising paper' but made significant progress
towards constitutional reforms in 1928. In February of that year,
Webber was part of a delegation to England meeting with Secretary
of State, L. S. Amery, on the above issue.
In his book, 'An Innocent Abroad', Webber recorded that jour-
ney. His other travelogue was 'Life in New York', recording his visit
to America.
The life of Webber was always connected to the printed word.
Vincent Roth recalled in his memoirs the help his father received
from Webber in the process of publishing the translation of
For his work in newspaper. Webber made a Fellow of the
Institute of Journalists. But not before his struggle in collabo-
ration with Herbert de Lisser (author of 'Jane's Career') for
press freedom and for the formation of the first West Indian

A. R. F. Webber died while on duty. 'Though 1 go with

company Yum Brands Inc. is

fast-food brand. Now, with
more than 225 Pizza Huts in 51
cities, Yum's No. 2 brand in
China is quickly becoming a

Last month, Yum Chief
Executive David Novak said
Pizza Hut in China was "now
a major business," with re-
turns similar to those of its
1,700-unit KFC chain. He
added that the company could
one day have as many as
2,000 Pizza Hut restaurants

nation comparable to the
size of casual dining chain

"In the broader sense, our
competitors are the Chinese res-
taurants," Su said. "But I'm not
sure people consciously make
that comparison."

Unlike its U.S. counterpart,
Pizza Hut's menu is more var-
ied than the typical pizzeria,
with items such as garlic bread,

The preservation ...

The decor is modern, with atmospheric lighting and a black.
brown and beige palate on its booths and walls.
Yum does not disclose sales and profits of its individual
chains in China, but Su said Pizza Huts' same-store sales, a
key retail measure, are "good."
The chain does about as much business at lunch as it does
at dinner, and afternoon tea is also popular. At a Pizza Hut in
a busy Shanghai shopping district on Tuesday afternoon, young
people, business people and others were scattered throughout
the restaurant sharing snacks and drinks.
One elderly woman stopped by briefly for a basket of gar-
lic bread and an iced tea.

Success did not come easily to the brand, however. Pizza Hut
struggled when it was first introduced in China in the early 1990s. Su
said, because it did not adapt to the tastes and needs of Chinese con-
Later in that decade. Su scrapped the chain's positioning as a tra-
ditional pizza place and overhauled the menu and decor to appeal to
Chinese tastes.
Now. Yum is adding Pizza Hut restaurants at a rate of about 20
per cent a year.
It is also capitalizing on the brand's success with a separate Pizza
Hut delivery chain for which it has high hopes.
The service, started in 2001. has a national call-in number that
goes to a Shanghai call centre where workers can take calls in Manda-
rin. Shanghainese. Cantonese or English.
Yum's more than 30 Pizza Hut delivery locations in China are
distinct from the casual dining restaurants, because. Su said, "fimda-
mentally the needs in the restaurants and the needs at home are differ-
Food delivery is a growing trend in China, Su said, because
peoples' homes are becoming more comfortable places to stay in for
the evening as discretionary incomes rise.
'They not only have regular TVs they have plasma TVs ... so
they say why go out when I could be at home?" he said.
Yum recently started advertising Pizza Hut delivery service on
television in Shanghai and has lowered the price of delivery service
pizzas, which had been comparable to prices in the restaurants.
Both the advertising and the price drop have been welcomed by
consumers, Su said.
Domino's Pizza Inc. also has a pizza delivery service in
China, with about seven Beijing-area locations.

Such an attitude could
shatter the daily human
unity of national life into
fragments, whose diverse
loyalties to themselves alone
could breed anti-social,
suspicious and hostile
competitions and simmering
animosities, especially by
those who look to violence as
the answer to everything. To
ignore the call to build a
national life and culture of
pleasure would be like
existing as a heap of stones
that made nothing,
remaining mere stones. The

If national life is to be pre-
served. it has to be first appre-
ciated. That means having
knowledge of great and collec-
tively beneficial feats of a prac-
tical nature. For example, both
their names and actual precious
vegetables and fruits such as the
tomato, potato. avocado, and
chocolate, are South American
native Amerindian words and
food products originating here
and introduced to the rest of the
world. Whereas. sugarcane and
bananas are not from anywhere
in South America or the Carib-
bean, but were introduced here
by Europeans.

earliest interactive gifts of our
local national life. Canal Polders
1, 2 and 3 on West Bank
Demerara, where any Guyanese
can reside today in a civilised
manner, is considered one of the
greatest Dutch engineering feats
in any of its tropical colonies;
dug in the 18th century by Af-
ricans placed 20 feet apart while
Dutch settlers and soldiers pro-
tected them from snakes with
their swords and arquebuses.
Similarly, all along East and
West Bank Demerara, as else-
where across Guyana where
Dutch names rightly remain, are
old Dutch villages where Dutch
farmers introduced cows, ducks,
poultry, citrus fruits, kokers and
dams over two centuries ago, a
vital foundation to national life.
The road between Vreed-en-
Hoop and Parika was also built
on the foundation of old Dutch
dams made by Dutch farms and
estates. The habitable land on

the banks of the Demerara and
other rivers are not natural, but
special low grasses, called land-
scape gardening by the Dutch
pioneers who did it.
Rice, a major national prod-
uct, like many others for which
all Guyanese are indebted to
East Indians, was a successful
experimental crop introduced on
18th century Wakenaam by
Dutch pioneers. The French
aristocrats in the 18th century
gave us a capital with ferries,
post office, South Road canal,
taxes etc. The Portuguese intro-
duced local aerated and alcoholic
beverages, etc.
National life shares each of
these contributions among all.
The British opened our minds
to film culture and international
literature. The gift of national
life is a pooled bonanza of prac-
tical values handed down by all.
Some, or many Guyanese. still
remain confused and uninformed

of their national life; for some,
to speak of the Dutch seems to
mean Suriname; no Guyana was
Dutch almost a century before
Suriname. Exiled by British
plans, many Dutch in Guyana
went over to Suriname after it
was given in exchange for New
York by Treaty in the 1660's.
Certain national tradi-
tions and lifestyles are part
of our heritage, such as the
right to be miscegenated,
which gave birth to many
sensual and attractive
Guyanese. Our values are a
pooled national treasure
which us respectfully to each
other above race, religion,
politics. We can change our
religions, and politics, be-
cause they are personal
choices and beliefs, but we
cannot change the shared
values of our national his-
tory and life. To deny this is
to deny all our harvests.

A ,sinl tclt iould be done to determine the fertilizer reiuire-
ients. The follh\ ing can be used as an approximate guide. Phos-
phate is the least mobile of the essential nutrients and should be
applied six weeks before transplanting. Apply 270 kg of TSP per
hectare (230 Ib/acre). A mixed fertilizer such as 15:15:15 should be
applied a few days after transplanting. As an approximate guide.
apply 10 g 92/3 of a teaspoon). 5 cm away from the plant to avoid
'burning' the roots. Repeat this dose at two and four weeks after
transplanting. Higher rates may be needed for pegasse soils rich in
organic natter. Applying too much urea will encourage excessive
leaf growth and delay maturity of the plant.

Diseases can be greatly reduced by avoiding planting broccoli
in soil which has recently been used to cultivate broccoli or other
brassica crops such as cabbage, pak choi and cauliflower.

Damping Off
This is causes by Pythium fungus and may be a problem at the
early seedling stage. It can be reduced by avoiding Over watering
and ensuring that there is good drainage. Chemical control can be
achieved by spraying the bed with Aliette (Phos- al) (1 tablespoon
per gallon) before sowing.

Black Rot
This is a bacterial infection that first as yellow and orange dis-
coloration at the margin of the leaves. Later it may spread along
veins and eventually stems turn black. Chemical control can be
achieved by applying Trimiltox which has some bacterial action.

Leaf Spot (Cercospora)
Leaf spot is a fungal infection. It appears as dark spots on the
leaves progressing to form lesions. It is a major problem during
heavy rain. It can be reduced using chemical control by spraying
with Trimiltox.

Pests can be discourages by keeping the area around the crop
free of bush and weeds.

Mole Crickets
These can cause large losses by biting through the stems shortly
after transplanting. If mole crickets are known to be the problem.
drench the soil in Diazanon (2 table spoon per gallon of water) or
Fastac (I tablespoon per gallon of water) before transplanting.

Diamond back Moth
The caterpillars of this moth can eat large proportions of the
leaves and kill the plants at the early seedling stage. Later in the
season when the plants are larger, a small amount of leaf damage
will not harm the crop. Sprays such as Halt based on Bacillus
thuringiensis (BT) are most effective against pests and less toxic to
humans than other sprays. Mix one teaspoon in a plastic bottle of
water and shake well then add to one gallon of water in the sprayer.

Bud worm (Heart worm)
This is also a caterpillar which kills young plants by feeding
on the apex. Treatment is as for Diamond back moth.

The crop is ready to harvest 50 80 days after transplanting
depending on the variety. Allow the curd to reach full size but pick
when still compact., before the branches of the curd begin to sepa-
rate. It is better to pick the full head when it is slightly too small
rather than wait for it to spoil. Cut below the head leaving a few
leaves on to protect it during transportation.

Fred Bremner, a British photographer, one of
hundreds who set up studios in Indian cities
and cantonments over the last century, has
rendered a service to historians in
photography. In 1940, at the age of 77, he
privately issued a little book setting out his
'reverie' of his forty years (1883-1923) in
Ai-dia. It is a minor goldmine, complete with
twenty-one autotype reproductions of his
works. The value of "My Forty Years in
India" lies in the fact that it shows under what
conditions provincial British photographers
worked in India.
Bremner was born in 1863 in the village of
Aberchinder. also known as 'Foggylone.' He was one
of several children of a poor photographer in Banff.
Scotland, and left school at the age of thirteen to join
his father's studio. He worked for six years. In 1882
his brother-in-law G.W. Lawrie, a photographer of some
repute with a studio in Lucknow in north India offered
him a job, and Bremner left for India on P.O. Sutlej, with
?20 borrowed from his father, and passage provided by
On arrival in Lucknow. Bremner found 'studio
accessories were very limited ..... A small lIuare tent
sufficiently large to do the changing and developing of
plates. Mr. Lawrie was somewhat behind the times.
due, no doubt, to being in India. He had not got away
from the practice of coating with collodion a plate in
the dark room and immersing in a bath of nitrate of sil-
ver to produce the sensitive element. A long exposure
was required, and to prevent the movement of the sit-
ter a headrest had to be adjusted. I persuaded Mr.
Lawrie to give it up and to obtain from home a supply
of dry plates. He did so and, of course was delighted
with the change, which enabled him to obtain more natu-
ral results instead of having the sitter's head placed
against a piece of metal to prevent movement, the ex-
posure being thus reduced to a minimum.
..... Bremner had strong views about his craft.
In the closing chapter of his book he writes:
....."I found my job through life most interesting.
Artists painters, I mean tell us that photography is
not a fine art. Cut out the word 'fine' and art remains.
Certainly mechanical means have to be used up to a
point, and many amateurs believe that when equipped
with a nice camera and lens nothing else is necessary.
The 'button' does the rest. Believe me it is the man or
woman behind the instrument that matters. What about
composition and lights and shades, especially in the pro-
duction of the beauties of nature? Search for the right
point of view. The movement of a few yards to the
right or left may add greatly to the value of the result."

(Taken from Brij Bhushan Sharma's writing that tells
about one of India's pioneering British photographers,
Fred Bremner)

You have been reading a write up about one of the
works of a photographer of repute who contributed to
the history of British pioneering photography in India.
The library can help you find booked written by good
historians on the subject. Anyhow, our business today
is to just let you see how real life happenings can be
found in writings of artists. Nothing can have more hon-
esty than writings backed up by pictures.

Look at the picture below which was taken from a
magazine on India. Write a story based upon it using
any suitable' if6rinatiodn abotif idia Adid i Indian culture.
Remember your limitation of 450 words.


Sentence Faults

At this point it is good that you are reminded about
sentence faults. Writing becomes more interesting when
it is free from sentence faults which happen when you
write sentences that are either incomplete (fragment)
or when you allow them to run together (run-on). We
are concerned today with incomplete structures only.
1. Sentence Fragments
Bluntly put. a sentence fragment is an incomplete

If you put a full stop at the end of a phrase or a
subordinate clause you will create a fragment.

You can correct a fragment by joining it on to a sen-
tence. Observe what a fragment looks like, and look
at how each situation is corrected.

Fragment: After watching the milk boil for five sec-
onds. My mother was ready to give us some.
Correct: After watching the milk boil for five sec-
onds, my mother was ready to give us some.

Sometimes you can add words or you can change
the wording to make the fragment a complete sense in

Fragment: Watching the milk boil for five minutes.
Correct: My mother was watching the milk boil for
five minutes.

Fragment: One of the puppies that had a bath in the
Correct: One of the puppies had a bath in the rain.
Examples of Complete Sentences
The bruised bats had been beaten for a hundred
Soon it will become dry and hot in the north.
On 4th April she married George Bernard in
New Amsterdam, Berbice.
In 1999 the Gorgons finally beat them at their
own game.
Identify the Sentences
After identifying the proper sentences below, say
what is not right with the others.
1. I finished my breakfast early yesterday morning.
2. Decided to call my sister, Mary.
3. A house next door to the polling place.
4. They've been friends for the last six months.
5. Skipping over the border.
6. Brought a great discomfort to the family.
7. Family business is a uniting force.
8. Good for you.

Fragments & Conversation
In conversation, fragments are often properly used
as answers. Here are some examples:
Where do you work?
At Patson's Dry Goods.

Are you happy in your work there?
Yes, very, very happy!

When do you plan to leave?
Not even today or tomorrow!

Something to do

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row by row,
That mark our place.

questions in named situations. Show them to your study

The greatest ideas are the simplest.
Now there was something to be done. They
worked with passion. Piggy was so full of delight and
expanding liberty in Jack's departure, so full of pride in
his contribution to the good of society that he helped to
fetch wood. The wood he fetched was close at hand.
a fallen tree on the platform that they did not need for
the assembly: yet to the others the sanctity of the plat-
form had protected even what was useless there. Then
the twins realized they would have a fire near them as
a comfort in the night and this set a few littluns danc-
ing and clapping hands.
The wood was not so dry as the fuel they had
used on the mountain. Much of it was damply rotten
and full of insects that scurried: logs had to be lifted
from the soil with care or they crumbled into sodden
powder. More than this, in order to avoid going deep
into the forest the boys worked near at hand on any
fallen wood no matter how tangled with new growth.
The skirts of the forest and the scar were familiar, near
the conch and the shelters and sufficiently friendly in
daylight. What they might become in darkness nobody
cared to think. They worked therefore with great en-
ergy and cheerfulness, though as time crept by, there
was suggestion of panic in the energy and hysteria in
the cheerfulness. They built a pyramid of leaves and
twigs, branches and logs, on the bare sand by the plat-
form. For the first time on the island, Piggy himself re-
moved his one glass, knelt down and focused the sun
on tinder. Soon there was a ceiling of smoke and a bush
of yellow flame.
The littluns who had seen few fires since the first
catastrophe became wildly excited. They danced and
sang and there was a 'partyish' air about the gathering.


1. Pretend that you were on a cruise and got left
behind with some other stragglers on a small island in
the South Sea. Write a letter to a friend incorporating
some of the information found in the passage.

sage and you were asked to let the littluns sug-

Although ozone w\as
present at ground level before
the industrial revolution, peak
concentrations are far higher
than the pre-industrial levels and
even background concentrations
well away from sources of pol-
lution are substantially higher.

Ozone can be used for
bleaching substances and for
killing bacteria. Many mu-
nicipal drinking water sys-
tems kill bacteria with ozone
instead of the more common
chlorine. Ozone does not
form organochlorine com-
pounds, but it also does not
remain in the water after
treatment, so some systems
introduce a small amount of
chlorine to prevent bacterial
growth in the pipes, or may
use chlorine intermittently,
based on results of periodic
testing. Where electrical
power is abundant, ozone is
a cost-effective method of

considered an atmospheric pol-
lutant, it can actually reduce
-pollutants like pesticides in
fruits and vegetables.

Ozone, along with
hypochlorite ions. is naturally
produced by white blood cells
and the roots of marigolds as a
means of destroying foreign
bodies. When ozone breaks
down it gives rise to oxygen free
radicals, which are highly
reactive and damage or destroy
most organic molecules.
Ozone has a number of
medical uses. It can be used
to affect the body's antioxi-
dant-prooxidant balance,
since the body usually reacts
to its presence by producing
antioxidant enzymes. Many

P~*2~`C` I


ARIES -- The universe is flexible enough to accommodate whatever you need,
but you will have to ask for it. If you vocalise your plans and accept the
challenges ahead of you, everything will be easy, and the your day will have
exactly the pace you need slow if you're dealing with complicated matters,
or fast if you're in an autopilot phase of life. It's important to prepare your-
self early in the day for what is going to come down the earlier, the better.
TAURUS -- All is fair in love and war, although the passion you're feeling for
an unrequited love might not feel just. Embracing your passionate nature is a
good thing, but don't lose yourself in your emotions right now. It's time to
wake up from daydreams and value yourself enough to face reality. If some-
one doesn't value you as much as you value him or her, don't waste any
more energy on the relationship. Get things back to being equal it's the only
way you can find balance.
GEMINI -- You thought you totally understood your feelings about a recent
encounter, but today confusion might swim up to the surface again. Having
doubts about what happened is fine, but do not make any changes based on
your doubts it's a waste of time. What's done is done, and if your feelings
are starting to change, there's nothing you can do but accept it and keep
moving forward. The impression you left is the one that will stay, and you
don't have to apologise for it.
CANCER -- Someone in your life is going through an emotional upheaval
right now. This person's typical carefree attitude is darkening and will start to
become quite moody. Do not let this change scare you off chances are, your
input and ideas are sorely needed, even if this troubled soul doesn't know
how to ask for them. A gently worded email would be a great reminder that
you can always provide a shoulder to cry on. Your involvement isn't neces-
sary to get things back on track, but it would help.
LEO -- You may be entering a strange phase in one of your closest relation-
ships, but don't worry this phase is only temporary. Something is going on
beneath the surface, and this person isn't telling you everything that's hap-
pening. This isn't a way to keep you at a distance; rather, it could be an at-
tempt to protect you. Let things go for now, and check back in after a few
days' time. Then you'll be able to dig beneath the surface.
VIRGO -- Some people may accept things at face value, but not you! You are
much too intellectually curious to buy into the latest craze, so don't worry
that you are out of sync with others. If you just don't 'get it,' you probably
aren't missing a thing. Fads come and go, but your own interests will be stay-
ing the same for a while. Devote some time to your favourite hobby or sport
today it will remind you of what you're good at, and give you a nice energy
and mood boost.
LIBRA -- It's time to go much deeper with someone you work or go to school
with. Formality is keeping real communication from happening, and you are
in danger of being misunderstood. There's no need for you to cross the line
from professional to personal, so don't fret about having yet another friend
to integrate into your social circle. All you need to do is keep in mind that
you're talking to a real person who has a sense of humor. Lighten things up.
SCORPIO -- You will be struck by visions of what could be today: When
you look at a child, you'll see a glimpse of the talented adult he or she might
grow up to be. When you look at an empty lot, you'll see the elaborate man-
sion that could be built there someday. It's a day of fanciful imaginings ap-
ply your most positive way of thinking to everything you see today. Imagine
things the way you want them to be, and you will give the universe some
hints to go on.
SAGITTARIUS -- The heavy emotional energy around you today could be a
result of an extremely active subconscious. Have you been having especially
vivid dreams lately? This could be a sign that you'll be entering a very active
conscious phase quite soon. This is a good time to tie up loose ends and put
some order back in your daily routine. The pace of your life is about to in-
crease dramatically. If you have been waiting for a reason to celebrate, one is
coming very soon!
CAPRICORN -- You are likely to be entering a more detached phase today,
where birthday parties are less than interesting, a roller-coaster ride just
doesn't seem like much fun, and a tear-jerky movie inspires a yawn. This isn't
boredom, and this isn't depression you're just feeling less emotional about
the world around you. Use this time to re-examine some touchy issues. You'll
be able to get a new clarity about what you used to see through a fuzzy,
emotional lens.
AQUARIUS -- Someone in your life is about to burst out of his or her shell -
make sure you're there to cheer that person on! Check in with the folks you
know who are usually the most introverted in the bunch. They might have
something to tell you that will excite and interest you. Things are changing in
their lives, and you are an inspiration for some of that change. This is your
chance to be someone's personal hero and personal cheerleader. Get out there
and lend a helping hand.
PISCES -- If someone you love has been taking on the role of doormat in a
relationship, it may be time to make this person aware that you're concerned.
With a wise mixture of compassion and truthfulness, you'll be able to con-
vince him or her that pride is very valuable. Whenever making an important
'life change is necessary, having good friendstoleanw on'oan nmake.it much
easier. Be h6rifsf'nd ftrh'fbe supportive. "'.". -

Scratching the bare earth for food

By Ochieng' Ogodo

NAIROBI] With equal mea-
sures of hope and despair, 70-
year-old Syombua Munyao
stoops wearily to sprinkle a
handful of seeds into the dry,
hardened earth, almost cer-
tain they will never grow into
"We are only trying. It is
not like the old days when you
would be sure of a harvest after
the rains," she sighs, shuffling
back to one of a clutch of
rounded huts of mud and
thatched leaves where she lives
in the poor Kiongwe region of
eastern Kenya.
For decades, life has been a
struggle in this harsh environ-
ment, but Munyao says things
were never as bad as they are
"There are no good rains
anymore," she complains. "The
sun was always hot, but these
days it feels like it's moved
closer. We are being baked," she
exclaims, wiping sweat from her
brow under a sun still uncom-
fortably hot in October.
Although Munyao lives in
Kenya, hers is a familiar story
throughout Africa, which experts
around the world agree is hard-
est hit by climate change.
The continent faces omi-
nous environmental perils if cur-
rent global warming trends con-
tinue, warned a new report re-
leased at the UN Climate
Change Conference, underway
in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi
from 6 to 17 November.
In less than a generation, 40
per cent of Africa's wildlife
habitat could be lost, and cereal
crops in the hungry continent of
900 million people could decline
by five per cent, the authorita-
tive UN report said.
It warned that a third of
Africa's coastal settlements
could be wiped out this century
by rising sea levels, and floods
threaten as many as 70 million
people, together with major cit-
ies such as Lagos in Nigeria and
Cape Town in South Africa.
Munyao, who lives only
about 200 kilometres from
Nairobi, knows nothing about
the report or its dire predictions.
But tens of millions of poor ru-

ral Africans like her are already
suffering under the grim impact
of climate change on their lives.

Ten years ago, dry spells
and drought forced Munyao to
move from the-nearby lowlands
to the higher grounds of
Kiongwe, where there was more
water. They had more to eat for
a while, but without rainfall the
earth dried up again.
She and many of the 3,000
people living in Kiongwe and
around began cutting down trees
on the higher ranges, clearing
forested land to cultivate food
and burning the wood for fuel.
Thick forests where elders
once retreated for worship, or to
gather vital medicinal plants to
heal wounds and cure typhoid,
diarrhoea, coughs and other ail-
ments, have now become dry
rocky ranges.
"When this place was for-
ested it was an oasis, with wa-
ter for our cattle, goats and
sheep; there were wild animals
like leopards and antelope,"
Munyao recalls. "Now all we
see are a few monkeys now and
then," she says.
The rainy seasons, once
predictable, have become erratic
and scarce. The Kiongwe River,
which would flow strongly af-
ter rains in May and retain wa-
ter for much of the year, is now
nearly dry year round, people
living there say.
"There are no rains any-
more," Munyao complains. "We
no longer cultivate anything but
maize and beans, because these
ripen more quickly," she says.
Sometimes, the people of
Kiongwe say, they manage to
stay alive only because of mea-
gre food supplies from the UN's
World Food Programme.
Foods like cowpea, millet,
sorghum and yam have become
only memories from her
younger days, Munyao says.
Deforestation, drought, loss
of wildlife habitat and declining
or disappearing crops are not
future threats in the lives of
most rural Africans. They are
scourges of their daily lives.
Climate change, of the kind

occurring in the Kitui district
where Kiongwe is located, is as-
sociated with global warming,
says Dr Buruhani Nyenzi, head
of the UN's World Climate
He says that the impact of
climate change in Kitui was seen
in long dry spells without rain-
fall, a rise in child mortality, and
more cases of diseases like ma-
The new UN climate change
report noted that Africa had
warmed 0.7 degrees centigrade
in the previous century, and that
1995 and 1998 were the warm-
est years.

In the Endau Hills area,
about 300 kilometres east of
Nairobi, Godfrey Wambua re-

members the hot years of about
a decade ago, noting that was
when the weather became un-
predictable and began to grow
"We had two seasons, the
long rains from March to May
and short ones running from
October to November, but that
is not the case anymore," says
Wambua, who is in his late 30s
and is a council leader for his
community of 30,000 people.
Only two decades ago a
thick forest, home to birds,
monkeys, gazelle and buffalo,
covered the entire hilly area of
Endau Hills, which spans 6,700
hectares. But the foothills have
turned bare, with only the hilly
peaks still green with trees.
Most of the animals, the resi-
dents say, have disappeared.
Like in Kiongwe to the
west, people in Endau have
gradually moved up the high-

lands, cutting down trees to ex-
pand land for cultivation and
grazing. But without trees to
slow them down, winds some-
times blow so hard that they rip
the thatched-leaf roofs from the
Desertification is another
scourge. Water, which was once
plentiful from shallow springs,
has become so scarce that
women and girls sometimes
walk more than 15 kilometres a
day to fetch it, people in Endau
Scarcity throughout the re-
gion has led to tensions with
herders in the next district, who
have begun to bring their cattle,
sheep, goats and donkeys in the
hundreds of thousands to Endau
for grazing and water.
Sometimes fights erupt
over water, and animals are
killed in revenge, says Wambua,
who owns cattle and sheep, and
grows maize when seasons are
"Over the years the situa-
tion has gone from bad to
worse," Wambua says, squat-
ting under a thin leafless tree

with his chin rested in his palm.
Musyoka Kaleli, who has
lived in Endau Hills and makes
a living from cattle and subsis-
tence farming, remembers a time
when there was more than
enough food and milk to go
"Thirty-six years ago there
was rich grazing land, fertile soil
and good harvests," he recalls
wistfully. "We had plenty of
milk, and those who did not
have could get generous rations
from neighbours at no cost."
"But life has changed;
there is hunger all year
long," says Kaleli, 68. His
greatest worry is for the fu-
ture. "When you look at us
today you see poverty. This is
sad, because it is getting
worse, and those who come
after us will have the bare
earth to scratch for food."

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
the possible suspension and/or repossession of these 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.

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 of Guyana (UG) and the Guyana School of Agriculture (GSA). Training sessions at these institutions are all provided at a highly
S 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.
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 Govermnent 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 of Guyana.
