By Chamanlall Naipaul
THERE has been no report of
flooding with the onset of
heavy rainfall, but there is
need for continuous monitor-
ing and vigilance, Minister of
Agriculture, Mr. Robert
Persaud cautioned yesterday.
He stressed the point to re-
porters at the drainage sluice at
Hope. East Coast Demerara
where desilting was under way
'to clear a blocked outfall.
On Friday night. the silted
,channel prevented the outflow
'of water from heavy rain, result-
ing in rising water levels in the
j-village, with the yards of some
. -residents flooded.
However, officials of the
N, National Drainage and Irriga-
:-tion Authority (NDIA)
promptly mobilised a pri-
Svately-owned excavator and
work to clear the outfall began
the same night.
By yesterday morning the
water level in the village had
dropped significantly and the
situation was back to normal.
There was also some rise
in water levels in Cane Grove,
also on the East Coast, caused
by a sluice door being left
open beyond the scheduled
period as a result of the koker
attendant not reporting for
duty on time.
NDIA Senior Engineer, Mr.
Lionel Wordsworth, told this
newspaper the door was left
open from 00:01 h to 00:06 h
Thursday, resulting in an influx
of water to the community.
However, he said, the NDIA
responded promptly and was
able to get the door closed and
bring the situation under control.
Persaud said the attendant
falls under the administration of
Region Four (Demerara/
Mahaica) and Chairman, Mr.

him that the incident will be in-

U.N. imposes nuclear
trade sanctions on Iran
By Evelyn Leopold and Irwin
(Reuters) The U.N. Security
Council voted unanimously
yesterday to impose sanctions
on Iran's trade in sensitive
nuclear materials and tech-
nology, an effort to stop en-
richment work that could be
used in bombs.
"Today we are placing Iran
in the small category of states
under Security Council sanc-
tions," acting U.S. Ambassador
Alejandro Wolff told the coun-
cil before the 15-0 vote, which
followed two months of tough
Iran, which refused to end
its uranium enrichment work in
exchange for economic incentives
earlier this year, immediately
condemned the resolution as il-
legal and said it would not af-
fect its "peaceful" nuclear activi-
The resolution demands
Iran end all research on uranium
enrichment, which can produce
fuel for nuclear power plants as
well as for bombs, and halt all
research and development on
methods of producing or deliv-
ring atomic weapons.
The thrust of the sanctions
is a ban on imports and exports
of dangerous materials and tech-
nology relating to uranium en-
richment, reprocessing and
heavy-water reactors, as well as
ballistic missile delivery sys-
The measure is less restric-
tive than the original draft,
drawn up by Britain. France
and Germany, due to Russian
objections. A ban on Iran's oil
exports was not considered.
In Tehran, Foreign Ministry
spokesman Mohammad Ali
Hosseini told state-run televi-
sion the resolution "cannot af-
fect or limit Iran's peaceful
nuclear activities but will dis-
credit the decisions of the Se-
He said Iran would con-
tinue to install 3,000 centrifuge
units at Natanz. the site of a
uranium enrichment plant.
Tehran's U.N. Ambassador,
Javard Zarif, accused the Secu-
rity Council and the United
States of a double standard by
punishing Iran while ignoring
Israel's nuclear arsenal.
"Iran has simply thumbed
its nose at the council and de-

Parry told the council, adding
that he remained committed to
resolve the dispute through ne-
While Britain. France and
Germany, sponsors of the reso-
lution, urged Iran to return to
negotiations, the United States
sought tougher measures, such
as an end to credits for Iran and
a halt to arms sales. It urged the
Europeans, Russia and China to
do the same.
"We don't think this reso-
lution is enough in itself." Un-
der Secretary of State Nicholas
Burns said in a teleconference
with reporters. "We'd like to
see countries stop doing busi-
ness as usual with Iran."
The resolution is under
Chapter 7. Article 41 of the
U.N. Charter, which makes en-
forcement mandatory but re-
stricts action to non-military
measures, and Russia's U.N.
Ambassador Vitaly Churkin
emphasised this point.
Russian President Vladimir
Putin, whose government had
hesitated over supporting the
resolution and succeeded in wa-
tering down parts of it, called
U.S. President George W. Bush
yesterday after reviewing the
measure until the last minute.
Russia, which is building an
$800 million light-water reactor
for Tehran that is exempted in
the resolution, has tried to main-
tain close ties with Iran but is
also concerned about any bomb-
building intentions Iran may
"Russia views this resolu-
tion as a serious message be-
ing sent to Iran regarding the
need to more openly and ac-
curately cooperate with the
IAEA to lift or resolve the re-
maining concerns and ques-
tions relating to the nuclear
programme," Churkin told
U.S. says top
Taliban leader killed
Taliban denies claim
KABUL (Reuters) U.S. forces said yesterday they had
killed the Taliban's military chief in southern Afghani-
stan, who had close links to Osama bin Laden and was heir
to the rebel leadership.
Akhtar Mohammad Osmani was the most senior leader
killed yet and was targeted in a region where the insurgency is
at its bloodiest, a military spokesman said. The Taliban denied
he was dead.
Osmani and two other guerrillas were killed in an air strike
on their car on an isolated desert road on Tuesday, spokesman
for the U.S.-led coalition force, Colonel Tom Collins, said in
"Mullah Osmani is the highest ranking Taliban leader that
we've ever killed," he said. "His death is very significant and
will hit the Taliban's operations."
The Taliban said Osmani, anointed by the group's leader,
Mullah Mohammad Omar, as his heir in 2001, was alive.
"We strongly deny this. He is not present in the area where
American forces are claiming to have killed him," commander
Mullah Hayat Khan told Reuters by telephone.
"The American and NATO forces from time to time
make such false claims. It's just propaganda against the
ABUJA, (Reuters) Nigerian Vice President Atiku
Abubakar has "technically resigned" by attending an op-
position party convention and President Olusegun
Obasanjo is seeking a replacement, a spokesman for
Obasanjo said yesterday.
Abubakar accused Obasanjo of staging a coup and vowed
to resist his removal in the courts, setting the stage for a con-
stitutional showdown in Africa's top oil producer in the run-
up to elections in April.
"By the actions of the vice president he has shown that he
has technically resigned his position by ... attendance of the
convention of Action Congress." Obasanjo's spokesman Uba
Sani told reporters at the presidential palace.
Action Congress chose Abubakar as its presidential candidate ear-
lier this month after the ruling party suspended him over a report
accusing him of corruption, which has since been nullified by a court.
"The president has embarked on a wide consultation with
relevant bodies in an effort to select a new vice president in
line with the provision of the 1999 constitution." Sani said.
Obasanjo has accused his deputy of disloyalty and
waged a campaign to stop Abubakar standing in next year's
poll, which should mark the first fully democratic handover
in Nigeria's coup-prone 46-year history as an independent

Peace negotiations collapsed in 2000. and a Palestinian up-
rising erupted soon after. Hopes of reviving talks appeared all
but dead when the Hamas Islamist movement took power in
Gaza and the West Bank in March.
But Israel has been under pressure from the United
States and the European Union to take steps to support
the moderate Abbas since he called for early Palestinian
elections, a move that Hamas has rejected as a "coup" and

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE December 24, 2006
AT THIS season of goodwill and merry-making, a common
feature across the member states of our Caribbean Com-
munity is the quite visible presence of the police, some
armed and mobile, others on foot patrols, giving a sense of
security to shoppers and other citizens of protection against
Crime has emerged as a major problem in most CARICOM
states and, consequently, the law enforcement agencies have been
compelled to be better equipped and prepared to go on the of-
fensive against the criminals.
The Guyana Police Force, like its counterparts in other
CARICOM states, is also faced with the challenge to recover
numbing quantities of illegal guns, including sophisticated AK-
47 rifles such as those stolen from the Guyana Defence Force
- in the possession of criminal networks that seem to be ex-
panding their bases of operations across the country.
In our situation, it is right and proper that both the head of
the GPF and GDF in reflecting on the operations of their re-
spective force, avoid minimising failures, some quite
outrageous while, at the same time, offering deserved praise and
encouragement for work well done.
SThey would know that a safe and secure environment is
absolutely essential for the peace and orderly development of
Guyana which should in no way be compromised by ANY con-
Musing on crime and security
sideration inconsistent with their mission statements and, ulti-
mately, what's good for our nation.
In extending our own best wishes to the security forces,
knowing that their members are now in a better position to cel-
ebrate Christmas with the one-month tax free bonus they de-
serve, we also express the hope that:
GDF Chief of Staff Brigadier General Edward Collins will
succeed in generating more confidence within the army and among
the public with the recovery of the 30 stolen AK-47 rifles. Fur-
ther, that the army will continue to show a high profile in work-
ing with the police to rid this nation of the criminal networks
that continue to kill, steal, destroy and spread fear.
Secondly, that the powers that be, including the relevant
politicians, and the Police Service Commission, would act
without delay in confirming the appointment of Mr. Henry
Greene as the Police Commissioner.
He has done well, in cooperation with his colleagues, to merit
such a confirmation in his relatively short period of acting in
that post since the retirement of Mr. Winston Felix.
Our Disciplined Services, like the workers of our public ser-
vice and other state institutions, have had to overcome, over
the years, the legacy, the damning consequences of the undemo-
cratic doctrine of "party paramountcy".
The indications are that they have done quite well in deal-
ing with that social and political burden. They, therefore, need
and deserve the respect and cooperation of ALL segments of
the Guyanese society.
SThe more the GPF and GDF inspire confidence in public
safety and national security, the more they could.expect the
solidarity of the Guyanese people across ethnicity and po-
Let the battle intensify against crime. Let us enjoy
Christmas and spread some joy and goodwill.

Me and you at Christmas
- Hailing peace envoys and humanitarian aid workers
THE debates continue, with recurring focus at Christmas,
whether Jesus Christ was born on December 25 which we in
the Caribbean and others of the global community celebrate
as His birthday.
A related debate is whether this momentous birth that holds
such tremendous spiritual significance for a vast segment of
humanity, is what we celebrate. Or is that, in reality Christians too
have become saturated in what is often characterized as a "pagan
Whatever a reader's perspective, either as a "true
believer", sceptic, cynic, or simply one who just want to join others
in soaking up a "holiday season", it is also sad to note that the
very place associated with Christ's birth, the famous town of
Bethlehem in Jerusalem, has fallen victim to contagious political and
Consequently, instead of the once very popular attraction
for tourists as a place of learning in history and culture, of
tranquillity, peace and harmony, it is currently a symbol of so much
that's wrong about human civilisation the intolerance, bigotry,
hate, destruction, the walls of separation and imprisonment of the
So, on this Christmas Eve, when galloping consumerism, fed
by entrenched capitalism, continues to make it increasingly
challenging to appreciate from the believers' perspective the
real reason for the season, I extend my humble best wishes to all
those working for peace in the world's trouble spots, and who boldly
and lovingly reach out, against the odds, to the millions of victims
of manmade and natural disasters..
I am greeting those White and Black men and women, often
simply described as "aid workers" who, sometimes at risk to their
own lives, are the 'foot soldiers' in the provision of emergency and
humanitarian relief to victims of natural disasters such as
tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods.
Or are engaged in passionately assisting the victims of
manmade disasters who have been reduced to being among
the wretched of the earth by those driven by the thirst for
power and misuse the name of God and mock democracy to
achieve their goals.
Such people who commit their dastardly crimes against
humanity with weapons of race and religion, resulting in the
grotesque images that are routinely brought into our homes by the
powerful medium of television images from various channels
amid all the commercial jingles that urge bigger spending for a "merry
To the honest peace-makers as distinct from those in leading
Western or Middle East capitals who only see the "devil" on the
other side" and the brave, committed humanitarian aid
workers, the foot soldiers, I add my own quota of good wishes for
I do so as we keep hope alive for the peace we so

SUNDAY CHRONICLE December 24, 2006 7
WHILE visiting one of my sisters in the United States dur-
ing Christmastime a few years ago, she kept hauling me
all around the place while I would have much preferred to
stay and snuggle in the warmth at home than be shiver-
ing out in the freezing cold.
Global warming may be somewhat heating up some places
that are normally bitter cold at this time of the year, but the
cold is still freezing for those of us born and bred in the warm
tropical sun. (To us, even an overcast sky is enough to get us
shivering and find some excuse to seek warmth in bed!)
It was dark and raining hard in and around Georgetown
Friday and someone commented to me that it was "rough, rough
Well, duh! I told him he ain't seen anything yet. People in
cold countries have to go to work in winter through driving snow
so thick you can't see a few inches before you, and you had
better not be late!
And most people here look at a little drizzle, and thinking
they are made of either salt or sugar and would melt if they get
wet, waltz into work a couple of hours late with the excuse,
Some sugar babies and salt daddies don't even turn up to
work, using a little rain as an excuse to stay away to preserve
their sugar and salt levels.
Sugar babies and salt daddies like them would be sucking a
lot of salt in cold countries, living off little else than welfare
cheques because they wouldn't be able to hold a job for long.
So, a little bit of a sugar man like me, found it a bit hard to
agree with my sister when she wanted to go out into the cold.
And when I asked her why she and her husband did not
like staying home much, her prompt reply was, "we've got
So, the little bit of a sugar man that I am, I had to quickly
find the itch in my feet to keep up with them and their itchy
It didn't take me long (probably as long as to suck a snow
cone on a hot day in Georgetown) for this little bit of a sugar
man to find his itchy feet, and soon my itchy feet were all over
the place, in step with their itchy feet, every inch of the way.
Those were sugar sweet itchy feet days in the cold and
this sugar man revelled in the outings. I've been there, done
And the itch is still with me. Like my love for music, for
laughter, like my weakness for sweetness, I believe I was also
born with itchy feet.
There are times when I wish I could really get down and
get it on with my itchy feet addiction, but 1 can't because my
job most of the time keeps me in the office.
Like this season. This is Christmastime and it's prime time
itchy season and this sugar itchy man is, most of the time, itch-
ing to get out of the office, but can't.
Crowds are swarming the streets and the stores, itching to
spend, itching to buy, some itching to try to inch closer to other
shoppers and watchers and hoping to inch any likeable contact
Some people in authority, probably with a bad sad case of
itching in the brain, tried some time ago to kill this serious Christ-
mas itch that infects Guyanese, but it didn't work.
You know those sweet body itches you get sometimes and
can't resist scratching to enjoy the itch?
Well, those people in authority very quickly found out that
the Christmas itch was too sweet and it had infected too many
Guyanese too deeply, so they dropped the plan to ban Christ-
mas and let the itch grow and spread.
In the itchy feet excursions I have had in and around
Georgetown so far for this season, I felt the itch deep and sweet
and saw many, many other itchy feet people itching away.
This is an itch that does not discriminate it cuts right
across religions, culture, race, class and whatever and there's
no known antidote to this seasonal epidemic.
It's so infectious that even normally rude or curt or impo-
lite telephone receptionists and clerks and others can't help
greeting you with "Season's greetings!"
In the cold countries, they have flu season and phar-
macies come up with all kinds of stuff to help victims deal
with the flu.
Here, this is prime itch season and neither rain nor sun can
stop people from feeling the itch. There's no known cure.
Did you see the shoppers out in the rain in Georgetown
last week and yesterday? The sugar babies and salt daddies,
who stay away from work or turn up late at the first drizzle,
couldn't resist the itch and were out in force with all the other
itchy Christmas people.
Those who weren't itching were itching to itch that's
how bad this seasonal itch is. People can't help it they were
either painting, repainting, decorating, rearranging, cleaning,
washing, cooking, shopping, or doing whatever else the itch
forces them into.
You want to see the force of the itch?
Get your freak on and let your itchy feet take you around
Georgetown, the towns and villages around the country today
and tonight, and you'll see the power of the itch.
And tomorrow and the day after, you will smell the power
of the itch. Those smells will be all over the place.
You will see people itching so bad that it's worse than any
bad case of stinging nettles.
And if you see this little bit of a sugar man itching along
with all the others, know that I finally and joyously managed
to itch my out of the office for a good bout of itching.
And a very Merry itchy Christmas to one and all!

IT'S BEEN one of the slower
years, in hard news terms: no
great events, few surprises,
and no real shocks.
But as the little events
accumulated during 2006, the
shape of the future gradually
became clearer in three
It is now clear that
America's moment in the
Middle East is coming to an end.
It has been a rather long moment
- the United States has called
most of the shots in the region
since the 1960s but recently
it has turned into a classic case
of imperial over-stretch. So we
will soon find out if a strong
American presence really was
vital for all of those years to
keep the oil flowing, keep the
crazies from seizing power, and
assault on Lebanon in July add
to the impression that U.S.
foreign policy in recent years has
been little more than crude
militarism, at that, and American
voters do not like the taste of
failure. So how far will the
U.S. withdrawal go?
All the speculation early
this year about American
military action against Iran to
destroy its alleged nuclear
weapons programme now
sounds preposterous; Iran will
be the new great power in the
Gulf, and there is nothing that
the U.S. can do about it.
Syria will do what it wants
in Lebanon, confident that
neither the United States nor
Israel will intervene to stop it.

keep Israel safe.
The catastrophic Iraq
adventure is the main reason
that the U.S. public is turning
decisively against further
American military involvement
in the Middle East, but the
growing debacle in Afghanistan
and even the botched Israeli
The U.S. navy will still hang
around the eastern
Mediterranean and the Gulf, and
Israel will still get lots of
American money and weapons,
but six months after President
Bush leaves office in early 2009
there will probably be no
American "boots on the ground"
between Morocco and Oman.
Will disaster ensue?
Probably not, except in Iraq
(where it has already arrived) and
perhaps in Lebanon. Except for
those two countries, the Middle
East is a massively stable area
where no regime has been
overthrown since Iran in 1979.
Many of the region's other
countries also contain aggrieved
religious and ethnic minorities,
but the awful price that Iraqis
and Lebanese paid when the
status quo was destroyed makes
people elsewhere very reluctant
to consider radical change. The
legions are going home, but the
barbarians are not at the gates.
The second big change that
became indisputably clear in
2006 was the shift of the
world's economic centre of
gravity. For centuries it has
been in the European-North
American part of the world,.but
the emerging economies
elsewhere are now big enough to
have a decisive impact on the
Oil surged to almost $80 a
barrel in mid-year as demand for
imported oil in China and India
dramatically exceeded supply,
and the prices of minerals,
timber and even grain soared for
the same reason. But the new
pattern goes well beyond this.
The familiar business
cycle of boom and bust has
been more or less
for over a century, but it was
always driven by what was
happening in the big
Western economies plus
Japan. It's almost seven
years since the last recession,
so we are due or even
overdue for another by now

The big developed
economies are forecast to grow
at only 1.5-2.5 per cent next
year, but Eastern Europe,
Russia and South Africa are
growing at 5 per cent or better,
and the major Asian economies
(apart from Japan) at 7 per cent
or better, so overall growth in
the global economy will be
healthy enough to avoid a
recession. This is not to say
that the business cycle has been
abolished forever, but rather
that the timing of the next
downturn probably depends as
much on decisions made in
Beijing, Moscow and New
Delhi as it does on the
centres in the U.S., Western
Europe and Japan.
And the third change...
This is harder to pin down,
because the thing about real-life
turning points is that you can
only be certain that you have
passed one some time after the
fact. but 2006 felt like the year
when we reached the global

move left (though only
narrowly). The Ukrainians
voted almost exactly the same
way that they did in last year's
election, just after the "Orange
Revolution" but got a quite
different government due to the
interplay of ambitions and
antipathies among the party
leaders. And when Russia briefly
cut the gas off to Ukraine in a
dispute over prices last January,
everybody in Europe got a
sharp reminder that Moscow
still wields great power.
A Danish newspaper's
cartoons of Mohammed upset
the whole Muslim world in
February. and the Pope's

the same effect in September.
The Palestinians voted for a
Hamas-led government in

It is innate as it is evident

CARICOM countries in the face as 2006 faded away, underlying starkly the absolute necessity
to integrate or perish.
At least the year started with six CARICOM countries at last bringing the much promised Carib-
bean Single Market (CSM) into existence, and, despite the uncertainties that surrounded their decision,
the OECS countries joined in the middle of the year.
The Single Market is by no means complete and, unless a range of measures are established by
law, including common regulatory rules for services and the machinery for integrating production across
CARICOM countries, it will be a flawed process giving rise more to contention than to harmony.
A key issue the freedom of movement of labour remains off the discussion table, mired in fears
of a political backlash for the political party in each country that dares to acknowledge the reality that
there can be no genuine single market without free movement of all the factors of production.
Sharp divisions are still part of the relationship b'eiwi gJvc'l. "" d the private sector, on
the one hand, and governments and the trade union movement on the other, in.many counties of
CARICOM. Yet, until there is a symbiotic relationship between these three groups that is built around
an agreed strategy for taking forward the Single Market, CARICOM will be marking time in a world
where other regions are marching forward.

perous. Agriculture flourished,
education developed and indus-
try took root.
The King was particularly
interested in the conduct of busi-
ness in every political and mili-
tary jurisdiction. Each of his ad-
ministrators was required to
submit a detailed report on the
financial affairs of his respective
district and the status of agri-
cultural activity. Every centime
spent had to be justified; failure
to abide by established rules
was punished. Under such a
system, the monarchy in the
north grew each year.
If there is anything vis-
ibly demonstrative of that
prosperity and continued
growth, is the number of pal-
aces and castles which were
built during the kingdom at
that time. Two fundamental
reasons led the monarch and
his entourage to build these
edifices: the notion of an of-
fensive return by the Frenchi
to reclaim the territory which.
was declared independent
and a desire to build some-
thing long-lasting in the new,
Henry I declared that he
wanted to build a civilisatiori in
the Caribbean which wold
have no cause to envy any an-
cient civilisation in Europe. In
so doing, he had churches built,
as well as some nine palaces, in-
cluding the Palais des 365
Portes and the Palais de Sans-
Souci, 15 castles and the
These lavish and imposing
edifices earned Henri I the title
of the King "Builder".
Next to the Palais de Sans
Souci, destroyed in 1842 during
a deadly earthquake, there is an
architectural work of the
Christophe era which is
idealised over two centuries of
Haitian history the Citadelle
Laferriere. This citadel remains
the largest fort in the American
- a notable builder
Situated at the summit of
Bonnet A l'Eveque, at an altitude
of 969 metres, it extends over
an area of 8,000 m2. Its walls are
between 5 to 7 m thick and its
longitudinal walls stand 940 m.
The Citadelle was built with
large tanks for water and stores
to hold a year's supply of food
for some 5,000 soldiers.
In fact, everything was
considered to make this for-
tress a strategic stronghold
and an area for social gath-
erings. Strategically, the
Citadelle was fitted with 300
cannons of varying sizes and
cannonballs. Large arsenals
of cannonballs, shot guns,
bombs, shells, gunpowder,
lead and pillboxes were hid-
Important gold pieces,
carved bricks and precious
stones were stored in other lo-
cations. There were also royal
quarters, kitchens, a bakery, a
foundry, a theatre house and ar-
eas for recreation.
The plan for the Citadelle
was designed in 1805 by Henri
Barre, a Haitian, who began the
early works, but it was a Scot-
tish architect named Laferriere
who would complete the struc-
ture. Together with engineers
and craftsmen, more than
22,000 workers of all ages con-
tributed to its construction.
TheiCitadelle offers several
geograpliical forms, ranging from
round ,urves to rectangular
lines, based on the perspective
of the observer. It offers a pan-
,oramic View of the entire north-
ern region of the country and
overlooks the town of Cap-
Haitien.From the summit of the
Citadelle, one has an extensive
view of the Caribbean Sea and
the eastern side of Cuba can be
seen during clement weather.
In 1982, the Citadelle was
declared a World Heritage site
for humanity by UNESCO.
Many consider it to be the 8th
Wonder of the World.
During the prosperous
days of Haitian tourism (1950s
to early 1980s), it was consid-
ered, together with Bicentenaire
in Port-au-Prince, the ruins of
the Palais de Sans-Souci, the
small church at Milkt. a great
Even today, it remains a
place of interest for tourists. For
example, it is included in the
"package" offered by certain
tour operators in the Dominican
Republic who immediately cite
it in what is referred to as multi-
symbolised the power of
Henry I, who wanted to ex-
pand it further and to link it
to other royal palaces. When
the King committed suicide
in 1820, works halted and the
kingdom was destroyed for-
ever. The North then fell un-
der the Western Republic,
which did not experience the
same success in material
terms or in its political and
Even worse, the wealth ac-
cumulated in the North disap-
peared and was squandered. The
country was to suffer, on the
one hand, the consequences of
these losses and, on the other,
the failure of the Western Re-
public to which the entire com-
munity would join ranks.
Since then, Haiti has been
unable to deal with tremendous
challenges. The spurts of a pe-
riod are far from meeting expec-
tations. It is not that the mon-
achy itself was superior to the
Republican system; the u:e
made of it by one or the other
is evident in the outcomes. In the
north, there was greater politi-
cal cohesion, a guiding principle
and clear objectives. In the
West, however, there was a prac-
tising republic which was ca-
sual; a society which was ex-
tremely stratified and political
freedom was not respected.
Surprisingly, in the north-
ern kingdom, where there was a
feudal system, which would call
to mind even the European do-
mains of the Ancient Regime,
daily social interaction was more
open than in the Western Re-

AN OUTSTANDING Guyanese whom then South African
President Nelson Mandela described as an African princess
when he first met her in Cape Town in 1994 has created his-
tory in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan by becoming
the first minority woman to win the nomination for election
to its Legislative Assembly.
Dr. Judy Kobsar (formerly Judy Blackman) last week scored
a landslide victory over three white candidates in the selection pro-
cess by the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) to 'run' in the
predominantly white Regina Rosemont constituency at the next pro-
vincial elections scheduled for either Spring or Fall of 2007.
The Premier of Saskatchewan, the Honourable Lore Calvert,
in a speech after the results were announced, said it was a day that
would be recorded in the history of Canada. He expressed copfi-
dence that Dr. Kobsar's overwhelming victory at the party level
will be repeated at the elections.
Dr. Kobsar has been selected to succeed retiring politician
Joanne Crofford, a 15-year veteran in the Legislative Assembly who
has held a number of Cabinet posts, tpe last being Minister of dul-

Land-locked Saskatchewan in Canada's southwest is almost 10
times the size of New York State (NYS) and has a population ekti-
mated at about one million, compared with 19 million in NYS.
The NDP controls 30 seats in the 58-member Assembly,
with the remaining 28 having been won by the Saskatchewan
Party (SaskParty), just a slim majority resulting from the pre-
vious elections in 2003.

However, the NDP hierarchy has expressed confidence that
the party's excellent record in government during the past three
years has identifiably improved its standing with the electorate and
this is expected to translate into an increased majority at the polls.
Political analysts in the province are predicting that Dr. Kobsar,
who is hugely popular in Regina, will take the constituency by a
wide margin and also be elevated to a ministry.
She will be coming into elective politics from an impressive
background of university teaching, community service, international
relations and a stint as a technocrat junior Minister of Agriculture
Asked to comment on the outcome of the party vote, Dr.
Kobsar expressed pride in being
the first woman from what Canada
calls a visible minority to have been
so nominated; and expressed the
hope that she will carry this per-
Sformance through to the elections.
"I think thaitit is important
that visible minorities have a
voice in the legislature," she re-
marked, adding that "I think it
also helps to boost the
multicultural and diverse com-
munity we have here.
"Regina is a melting pot of
various ethnic groups. Once they
see one of their own has been able DR. JUDY KOBSAR
to get that far, it will make them
do the same or even better."

and to members of the opposition SaskPaity, all of whom raised a

' favourable statements made about her and she pledged to work assidu-
ously to retain the seat for the NDP with an even greater majority.

The conflict has largely

HONORARY KNIGHT U2 lead singer Bono
A statement on the U2 Web site (www.u2.com) said Bono
was "very flattered to be honoured, particularly if the honour
... opens doors for his long standing campaigning work against
extreme poverty in Africa."
British Prime Minister Tony Blair said he was delighted
Bono had chosen to accept the award.
"I'll leave it to others far more knowledgeable than me to
talk about U2's music. All I'll say is that, along with millions
of others right across the world, I am a huge fan," he said in
the letter, reprinted on the No. 10 Web site (www.pm.gov.uk).
The prime minister said he felt more qualified to talk about
Bono's personal commitment to tackling global poverty and,
in particular, to Africa. "I know from talking to you how much
these causes matter to you," Blair said.
The knighthood is the latest award for 46-year-old Bono.
In 2003, he was given the Legion D'Honneur by President
Jacques Chirac on behalf of the French government, for his

14 SUNDAY CHRONICLE December 24, 2006
(Compiled by Clifford
THIS is a look back at some
of the happenings in British
Guiana between October and
December 1906 as Guyanese
were preparing to celebrate
Christmas 100 years ago.
The excerpts selected give
readers a light-hearted look on
these events and some other as-
pects of life as reported in the
pages of the Daily Chronicle
newspaper at that time.
ACCIDENT IN WATER
STREET (October 30, 1906)
- Yesterday a young man
named Edward Leung, Clerk to
Messrs Hing Cheong and Com-
pany, was knocked down by a
cab horse in Water Street,
Georgetown near the Stabroek
Market. The young fellow was
stunned for a while but it was
not thought that he had re-
ceived any worse harm than a
very severe shock.

of rolled beef valued at $30, the
property of J I Chapman be-

Robert Wight, Clerk with
Mr Chapman said that Saturday
the 15th he took stock and left
five barrels of rolled beef on the
wharf. They each had a dia-
mond mark with a C in the Cen-
tre. The beef was sold only in
the grocery and to shops in the
gold fields but not to those in
town. From information re-
ceived he went to the wharf and
checked the barrels on the
wharf. Two barrels were miss-
ing. On the 25th he accompa-
nied the Police to Albouystown
where he saw a barrel similar to
those in which the beef was
kept. The head was scraped.
Hubert Phillips, a cartman, said
that the defendant came to the
market and called him to take a
load from Holmes Stelling. The
defendant borrowed two boards
from Mr Birch's Store and rolled
the barrels onto the cart. One of
the barrels was marked with a
Diamond and a C in the centre.
Witness saw a man named Do-
ver Blackman there. He was
told to drive to the corner of
Murray and Thomas Street.
When he reached Main Street he
met a Portuguese man who ac-
companied the cart. When he
reached the destination the Por-
tuguese man told him to drive
to Lot 49 Brickdam and leave
the barrels there. Blackman and
two others followed the cart.
The Portuguese man and an-
other man knocked in the head

barrel. The barrels were covered by

woman poured forth a most
pitiful tale informing the Mag-
istrate that it was her husband's
doing who had put her out bag
and baggage and implored His
Worship's sympathy. His Wor-
ship questioned why the hus-
band should have treated her in
the manner described. She
pleaded no reason whatsoever
and in fact she made herself to
be an immaculate person. She
pleaded that she might be sup-
plied with a Constable and let
her take her goods.
His Worship was not im-
pressed by the story and sug-
gested that she should summons
her husband. The applicant left

ers looking very dejected.
HEAVILY FINED: At the City
Court yesterday (November 1

Acting Assistant Stipendiary
Magistrate Balgradge was
charged by PC 1201 Curry with'
having sold a half pint of milk
valued at 3 cents which when
analyzed was found to contain
4.7 per cent of added water at
Georgetown. Accused had been
convicted on three previous oc-
casions on a similar charge and
was fined $50 or two months
imprisonment with hard labour
(Writer's Comment: Fifty
dollars! What a heavy fine for a
dairy farmer in 1906. Wonder
whatever happened to Mr
Balgradge? It's a safe bet to say
that he kept his fifty dollars in
his pocket and cut his two
months in jail. But it happened
a hundred years ago and Mr
Balgradge is undoubtedly above
all that agony about choice

DISTRICT NEWS EAST
BANK DEMERARA: There
has been quite a harvest of sud-
den deaths and accidents here.
The finding of the body of a
man named Kemp in a farm at
Mocha and the sudden death of
a child at Bagotstown named
Irene Hamlet were followed by
Ellen Fortune being seized with
some kind of disorder on the
road at Meadow Bank and fif-
teen minutes after she was taken
home she died. Then followed
an elderly James Barry at
Bagotstown who after taking his
tea died suddenly. Sookurmoni,
an elderly East Indian woman of
Plantation Houston went to
bathe last week and had to be
taken from the trench into which
she had fallen. She too expired
and so did Rhoda Hodge a little
dumb and deaf girl of ten years
who fell into a trench. At the In-
quest which was held by Mr W
A Parker at Providence Court-
room the Jury returned the ver-
dict of accidental drowning in all
other cases except that of Irene

At the Suddie Court before

J Richardson who is a fisher-

Cecilia. He was absent from
home on the night of December
15th leaving his wife in charge
of the house.
Young visited the house
of the defendant and eventu-
ally strayed into the bedroom.
Defendant who had received
information about these noc-
turnal visits did not fish that
particular night but lay in
ambush and on returning
found Young cooling out
without boots, without trou-
sers and without jacket. Need-
less to say Richardson
promptly attacked his adver-
sary who could not give a sat-
isfactory account of himself
and one Webb gave his kindly
assistance by throwing light
on the scene by means of a
lamp holding it over Young's
face. The night prowler got a
good healthy castigation. In
vain did he beg and implore -
Richardson leathered him for
all he was worth and eventu-
ally when the door was burst

PRO-CHANCELLOR of the
University of Guyana, Dr.
Prem Misir, has another book
publication: Ethnic Cleavage
and Closure in the
Caribbean Diaspora: Essays
on Race, Ethnicity and Class.
It is published by The
Edwin Mellen Press of New
A press release said this
collection of essays addresses
the allegations of racism as one
of the major themes in political
commentaries in the multiethnic
Caribbean and its Diaspora. In
this context, several ethnic
groups ply for scarce resources,
so the principles of fairness and
equality in resource distribution
become critical to societal
The book, the release said,
advocates an understanding of
inter and intra-ethnic class
structure as a useful conceptual
tool to address the issues of
ethnic cleavage, racism, and
discrimination, using a power-
conflict framework that
illustrates that inter and intra-
ethnic class structure
stratification, caste, internal
colonialism, and a diversity of
class-based and Marxist
The Foreword to the
book by Professor Aubrey W.
Bonnett, The College at Old
Westbury, says: "It is not
often that one is presented
with a book that succinctly
and deftly dissects the social
and political dynamic in the
mini diasporic nation-states
in the Caribbean with such
clarity and force of arguments
... This book leaves the
reader with a well-informed
feeling about colonial and
postcolonial analysis, and is
required reading, I would
contend, for anyone
interested in truly
understanding how these
arrived at their current
Dr. Colin Brock, University
of Oxford, says: "Dr. Misir has
made a most welcome addition
to the literature of Caribbean
social science with his
compilation of this book. It
deals with enduring and tense
issues in Caribbean societies,
both in the region itself and
beyond, for the Diasporas are
both within and without. In
addition to his skilful
compilation of themes and
choice, of contributors, Dr.
Misir makes a major
contribution to the volume
himself with characteristic
scholarship and commentary of
a high order."
"Dr. Misir's personal
knowledge of the East Indian
Diaspora experience in Europe,
North America and the
Caribbean positions him to
speak with conviction, and even
passion, on the scope and
challenges of that social reality.
He offers a firm perspective
from within that invokes a
response from without as part
of an ongoing discourse on race
and ethnicity in the Caribbean",
says Dr. J.A. George Irish, City
University of New York.
Misir received his Ph.D.
from the University of Hull,
England and is the author of

,from the UK shows.
"With most toys, your
child will only damage their
hearing if they use them for too
long a duration, or if they stick
them in their ear," Dr. Brad
Backus, a research fellow at
University College London's Ear
Institute who performed the
study, said in a press release.
"Our advice is pretty simple:
don't let your child hold noisy
toys too close to their ear, and
don't let them play with them
for more than an hour a day."
In a study commissioned by
Deafness Research UK, Backus
tested the noise levels of 15
popular toys for children aged
3 months to 15 years. The rec-
ommended top noise limit for
toys is 85 decibels. Prolonged
exposure to noise above this
level can cause permanent hear-
Eight of the toys emitted an
average of 81 to 105 decibels
when held 25 centimetres from
the testing microphone, roughly
arm's length for a child. Pixar
Cars "Lightning McQueen"
emitted 82.5 decibels, while La-
ser Command's noise level was
But when held at 2.5
centimetres from the micro-
phone, approximating the dis-
tance if the toy was held close
to the ear, 14-of the toys, in-
,cluding Fireman Sam's Action
Jupiter and Tomy's "Spin n'
!Sound" remote controlled car,
Ihad average noise levels between
84 and 115 decibels. The only
toy with noise levels below the
safety threshold was a VTECH
cell phone for babies.
Toy guns were the worst
offenders, emitting 120 to 140
decibels when held at arm's
length and 130 to 143 decibels
when held close to the ear.
Noise of 140 decibels or above
can cause immediate hearing
"If I had children, I'
wouldn't.give any of these
gun-toys to them," noted
Backus, who said his ears
were ringing after testing the
guns. "And I would recom-
mend.that people avoid them.

during the live 2004 Super Bowl
football halftime show did not
violate decency standards that
restrict nudity on broadcast tele-
"The FCC reasonably con-
cluded that, although brief, this
display of nudity violated
longstanding federal prohibi-
tions on the broadcast of inde-
cent material," it said in a brief
filed with the U.S. Court of Ap-
.peals for the Third Circuit.
Fellow pop singer Justin
Timberlake ripped off part of
Jackson's bustier exposing her
breast for less than a second
during the show. Despite the
brevity, lawmakers and regula-
tors were outraged and vowed
a crackdown on broadcast inde-
"The commission also rea-
sonably held that CBS's viola-
tion of its broadcast indecency
rules was 'wilful' and therefore
justified a forfeiture," the FCC
U.S. television and radio
broadcasters are barred from
airing obscene material and are
limited from broadcasting inde-
cent material between the hours
of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., when
children are likely to be watch-
ing. The restrictions do not ap-
.ply to cable or satellite services.
CBS apologised and paid
the fine, $27,500 for each of the
20 stations it owns, but said it
was not clued in ahead of time
about the stunt and in July ap-
pealed the decision to the court,
based in Philadelphia.
The network challenged the
FCC's ruling that the flash was
indecent, contending that it was
brief and that in the past the
FCC had not taken action-
'against flceiing instances offiiUf
.dity and profanity.
"If CBS doubted the appli-
cability of indecency regulation
to brief nudity, its doubts
should have been dispelled in
the days before the Super Bowl
when the commission found ap-
parently indecent ihe broadcast
of nudity lasting less than a sec-
ond," the FCC said.
The agency denied that its
contemporary community stan-
dards by which it measures such
incidents was subjective, an-
other argument by CBS.
A representative for CBS
was not immediately available
The case is the second
major legal challenge to the
FCC's decency standards.
Earlier last week, an appeals
court in New York heard oral
arguments about the fleeting
use of profanity on broadcast

McGrath's success a victory for hard work

simple it was easy to forget
how hard he worked to get to
McGrath, who is retiring af-
ter the 2007 World Cup, was
not the quickest pace bowler
the world has ever seen, but he
was the most successful with
555 Test wickets.
His recipe for success was
simple: unerring accuracy,

and sharply rising bouncers

His stock delivery was the
ball that pitched on a length and

the ball back at those who

look like fools as they shoul-
dered arms to a ball that sud-
denly darted back and crashed
into their stumps or nicked a ball
that moved away off the seamn
and could have been left alone.
McGrath's simple ap-
proach to the game belied the
fact that he was one of the hard-
est working fast bowlers Aus-
tralia ever produced and few
people gave him any hope of
ever making a career out of it.
He grew up in Narromine,
a dusty outback town in
western New South Wales,
and was a slow starter. He
never played junior
representative matches and
by the time he was 16, his
own team mates were telling
him he would never make it
as a bowler.
When he finished school, a
career as a professional cricketer
was the last thing on McGrath's
mind, so he spent the next few
years in a variety of jobs, in-
cluding working as carpenter, in
a bank and at local farms har-

Love can't cross
the class divide
Men who fornicate above their station have far less sense
DOES social status in relationships
really matter? Is the power of a
good relationship swayed by a
good job, healthy bank account or
increased social status?
Sherry Dixon has her say.
A few months ago, a shapely,
attractive redhead and a mar-
ried mother of two, resigned
from her job as a doctor at
Winchester prison in England
after falling in love with an
inmate an armed robber.
She treated him as a pa-
tient and wrote him passionate
letters. She wore provocative
short skirts and low-cut tops,
which was madness for a sup-
posedly responsible woman
dealing with volatile, sexually
frustrated young men.
She behaved in a crass, un-
seemly way and she's lucky she
wasn't reported to the GMC.
"You have no idea what went
through my mind and body",
she wrote to the armed robber
I'm sure he knew precisely
what was going through her
mind and she wasn't the first
middle-class woman to lust af-
ter him. This middle class doc-
tor reacted like a pathetic,
lovesick schoolgirl and I have
absolutely no sympathy for her.
She could easily have ruined
her life and her marriage. If the re-
lationship had continued and she'd
left her comfortable lifestyle for
a criminal lover, the outcome
would have been disastrous.
Class differences don't mat-
ter in the first flush of overpow-
ering physical attraction, but
they matter in the end. They
matter even more when a
woman is the socially superior
of the two. Women are much
more adaptable and shrewder
than men. If they fall in love
with a posher bloke, they're
quite willing to fit in with his
lifestyle. They see it as a learn-
ing curve, not demeaning.
Men who fornicate above
their station have far less sense.
They're outraged by any sug-
est.iion thai Ihcir .ibl miiinner,

common or their speech non-

Men want to be in charge so
they can't cope with being told

Men like-the inmate are flat-
tered when middle-class girls
make it clear they fancy them.
Initially they are attracted by
their speech, gentility and pro-
fessional standing. Then they
begin to feel inadequate so they
turn into controllers. They have
to show they're not impressed
and they're unfaithful just to

Women like the foolish doc-
tor fall in love with rough, mus-

And it nearly always comes
It ain't what you got, it's
the way that you've got it...
Far from conducting our rela-
tionships with egalitarian goodwill,
research has revealed that we feel
most comfortable in the company
of people whom we believe to be
equal or whisper it even slightly
below us, in social terns. Not only
that, but wealth, status and power
impacts directly on our health: in
relative terms it doesn't matter
whether you own a humble coun-
cil flat or an eight-bedroom mansion
on Millionaires' Row, simply be-
lieving that you live better than
your friends and neighbours puts
you in line for a happier, healthier
and even longer life.
Close-up and personal
And what about the numer-
ous friendships that have sim-
ply worn out? It has long been
acknowledged that, much as
women like to pretend other-
wise, most of us are swayed by
a good job, healthy bank account
or increased social status when
it comes to choosing a partner.
Why do we honestly believe it
to be that different when it
comes to our friends? In both
relationships we want someone
who will support and be there
for us. But, while we might not
like to admit it, we also choose
our companions as a subtle re-
inforcement of our own worth.
Well how would we be able to
snare such a good friend/lover if
we weren't the same ourselves?
Crucially, however, Friend-
ship Status Syndrome (FSS)
isn't just about the outward
trappings of who's doing better
than whom. Most friendships
hinge, to some degree or other,
on a balance of power that's as
much about emotional (in) equal-
ity as superficial success and
sometimes even the most ap-
parently minor shift can knock
things seismically off course.
One woman I know has re-
cently lost over two stubborn
stone in weight. Since then she's
been accused some by some of
her closest friends of being ev-
erything from over-confident to
too thin (she clocks in at a
pleasingly curvaceous size 12).
What's happened, of course, is
that she's overstepped the
boundaries of their friendship's
emotional hierarchy, even if she
didn't know it existed until now.
And as her Friendship Status
stock has gone up, so have
some of those around her been
forced to reassess theirs.
The bottom line
If all this simply seems sim-
ply too depressing for words,
cheer up there are some rela-
tionships that seem, genuinely,
to be beyond such superficial
Longstanding friendships in
which each party has had more
than enough experience of the
best and worst of each other are
generally able to withstand the
vagaries of FSS.
Why do you think it is
that famous people always
cite their oldest friends as the
only ones they can really
trust through their journey to
the top of society's tree? (Or
is hanging out with old mates
the ultimate way to ensure
your top-dog status within
your social group?) Anyway,
so what if even your close re-
lationships still seem littered
with the messy fallout of
FSS? If friends truly are the
new family then perhaps re-
peat occurrences might, well
be the highest accolade. After
all, what greater competition
is there than sibling rivalry?

I went on a trip to Texas this
summer with my three chil-
dren and a girlfriend. Look-
ing back now, I should not
have taken my friend. She is
a drama queen to the max.
We were staying with my dad,
and the reason for the trip
was to meet my sister I didn't
know about until two years
Mom and dad split when I
was two, and he was never part
of my life. We have a fairly
tense relationship as he doesn't
know how to be a dad. As a
child my mother told me hor-
rible things about him. My girl-
friend added to the stress by
sitting my dad down and giving
One night my dad made
margarita. My friend had three
and was toast. He olTered to
show her his collection of prize
classic vehicles he's restored.
These cars are his pride and joy,
and he shows them off every
chance he gets. An hour or so
later he headed to bed, and my
girlfriend gave him a hard time
She said. "What if I run out
of margaritas?'" He said. "Well
then, come wake me up. and I'll
make you nm1re." She took this
as a come-on and decided he was
trying to hook up with her.
Neither my sister nor 1 saw this
as a come-on, but my girlfriend
wouldn't let it rest. She brought
it up continually for the rest of
As the week came to a close
1 was soaking in every last mo-
ment with my sister. Six days
just wasn't enough to make up
for 23 years. My friend barged
into our conversation, talking
nonstop about a relative's mari-
tal problems. Next morning she
asked if we could swing by
someone's house for a quick
goodbye before our 16-hour
Her quick goodbye turned
into 45 minutes. My 3-year-
old was screaming bloody mur-
der, and I was exhausted. Four
hours into the trip I let loose.
1 told her she was rude. I said
she was mighty full of herself
to think every guy wants her.
1 also told her I was never go-
ing to wear the pair of short
shorts she bought ime for my
I know words are like
toothpaste, and once you
squeeze it out it doesn't go back
in. So I wrote her an apology.
I said in some ways you arc
still that chubby little girl who
has low self-esteem. Despite
what you feel inside you are a
beautiful woman with the heart
the size of all those Texas egos.
I said you are Mother
Teresa in some ways. I say in
some ways because I'm sure
Mother Teresa would never
break out a permanent marker
in a bar bathroom and write on
someone's naked fat butt like
you did, but the truth is I miss
Boinie, if this woman and a
stranger were on the bank of
a river and you fell in, we'd
bet on the stranger to jump
in and save you. Your friend
might say, "I can't imagine
Bonnie wants me to jump in
and get this outfit wet."

the definition of the word

crets to and they will never

(BBC) A 15-year-old girl has given birth at a school in
The baby was born in a medical room at St Joseph's Catholic
College in Cunliffe Road on Friday, a school spokesman said.
An ambulance was called but the girl had given birth by the
time it arrived. The Year 11 pupil is not thought to have known
she was pregnant.
Spokesman for the Catholic Diocese of Leeds, John Grady,
said the girl and her baby were "fine".
"It is something that will be talked about for some time but
we are just happy that the girl is OK, the baby is OK, and
hopefully they will be home this weekend and spend Christ-
mas at home," he said.
"It is not going to help to go moralising on the whole situa-
tion. That is not important, what is important is that the child
and the baby are fine and everything is being done for them and
Mr Grady said the head teacher had met the girl's
mother and preparations had been made for her to return

Have a sweet tooth
- Watch out for a Christmas toothache! Tle Denlst AdvisS
I 1 11 rUm II NI-J'il
IT may not be by coincidence that during a ses-
sion of light banter with a few dental colleagues
that two of them disclosed that their first (and
worst) toothache was experienced on a Christmas
Many vmay be able to teslif\ to similar experiences.
But \hat is the point here? lThe point is thai there is a
distinct relationship between the ingestion of sw\seel and
During this Iesti\e season ofl Christmas there will be at least a
tell percent increase ill the incidence ofl dental caries along
Guyanese. The simple reason is because of the higher sucrose (sugar)
ingestion combined with the transient neglect in maintaining oral
hygiene concomitant with the disruption in routine personal activi-
Cakes, s\\eets, jellies. chocolates and dried lruits ar ie the most
cariogenic (caries producing) foods in existence and they are eaten
indiscriminately at this time of the year.
Although sugar by itself cannot affect the teeth in any way.
the bacteria of dental plaquIe ferment these substrates (sugars and
starches) most readily to produce the acid that erodes the enamel
causing tooth decay. It only lakes bacteria a matter of seconds to
conerlt sweel to acid.
People have always liked a sweet taste. The "sw eet loolth
of primitive man was satisfied by fruits and other sweel part'
of plants which were supplied by nature. All over the world
people ha\e used honey. a natural sugar concentrate as the
source of additional sweetness. In Australia. Cuba. LEngland
and the United States of America, each citizen consumes more
than 100 pounds of sugar a year. however, in China, the most
popular country in the world, less than five pounds of sugar
a year is consumed by each citizen. As a result, the Chinese
have fewer caries than Iiost.
The modern approach which is designed to circum-
vent the deleterious potential o u of s ar on d mental \ell-
being is to substitute the carbohydrate with arti'ii.c l

SPrincess from the emerald sea
By Hubert Williams
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -
Neither the Grimm Brothers
of Germany (famous for en-
chanting the world with their
folk tales and fairy stories)
nor a dashing prince fetching
a pair of golden slippers could
have matched the web of
magic which singing super-
star Rihanna has woven for
herself to move from virtual
obscurity on the 166 square-
mile eastern Caribbean island
of Barbados to global promi-
nence in less than two years.
Her rise represents the
region's biggest fairy-type tale
for many years; but it defies
mythology, for it is all so very
real. She is probably now the
youngest millionaire ever in Bar-
bados, bequests to youthful
heirs in prominent families not-
withstanding; and, still only 18,
there are many worlds yet for
her to conquer.
Earlier this month, Rihanna
was sparkling from the peak of
another mountain as she joined
some of the world's best known
entertainers, including the ever-
green Lionel Ritchie, at a presti-
gious concert during the glitter-
ing 2006 Nobel Prize Awards
Only two other places may
for her carry greater gloss i.e.,
command performances for the
Queen at Buckingham Palace in
London and for the President at
the White House in Washington.
Just a few days prior to her
Oslo appearance, Rihanna had
trumped the best on the world's
stage in three categories Female
Hot Artist, Pop 100 Artist and
Female Artist of the Year at
Billboard's 2006 Music Awards
extravaganza in Las Vegas, Ne-
Her sold-out appearance
have taken the young Barbadian
to such 'far away' places as Ja-
pan in the Far East and Australia
Down Under, with other trips to
London, England, and several
major American cities becoming
like just a walk in the park.
In her hometown, there have
been calls from not insignificant
voices for her to be accorded a
national honour. Also, increas-
ingly her lovely image is appear-
ing in newspapers and on the lo-
cal television in endorsement of
some advertiser's products. In
short, Rihanna is beginning to
appear just about everywhere.
Recently, dining out in Bos-
ton with family and friends, our
preferred place was the Cheese-
cake Factory Restaurant which
jealously defends its reputation
for the most delectable cuisine. Its
artistically presented 36-page
menu is a delight to behold, and
right up front (page 3 to be exact)
Rihanna blossoms forth in a beach
scene on a large advertisement in-
viting the world to visit her home-
land, with the message saying:
"There's still a real Carib-
bean out there. Where you'll find
chart-stopping recording artist
and Bajan native Rihanna. End-
Sless perfect beaches, open to all.
Incredible dining. Spectacular
golf. And people as warm and
unspoiled as the island itself."
Early this year, Rihanna
took seven major trophies at the
inaugural Barbados Music
Awards; and she is being nomi-
nated for an armful of other s
when the second glittering event
takes place at Bridgetown on
January 5, 2007.-
Rihanna also is not far away
from one's inquisitive general
reading,. though she would hardly
have been impressed by the non-
sense written in one of the en.
tertainment world's 'under
press' which goes by the name
Focusing on one Nick
Lachey whom it called America's
SHottest Bachelor and said to
have more hot women than one
man can handle, the Star won-
dered whether Rihanna would be
"Nick's next babe" and contin-
ued: "Is this the next stop on
Nick's love train? They were on
the same bill twice over the
weekend of June 23. That Fri-
day they participated in a con-
cert in Sacramento. Then the next
night, they did another gig in Se-
attle. For how long can Rihanna
resist Nick's charms?"
What rot! Rihanna hasn't
just emerged from idiotville or
simpletown and is thus fair prey
for brainless wolves. She is a
product of an environment where
stability, good sense and judg-
ment are the norm. Where small
size is not an impediment, and
scientific and technological ad-
vancement is not the barometer.
Barbados ranks considerably
ahead of many countries, includ-
ing some of the so-called devel-
oped ones, in the conduct, free
from evident graft and corrup-
tion, of its political, social, judi-
cial and other institutions.
As beautifully as she sings
and dances, Rihanna was also
firmly on course to academic ex-
cellence as a student in the Fifth
Form of the Combermere
("Cawmere" to old scholars) Sec-
ondary School, just a mile north
of the capital Bridgetown.
Indeed, on one of her visits
to Barbados in 2006, she did a
radio interview and fielded
phoned-in questions. Most in-
quirers wanted to hear of the vis-
tas and the excitement of the far-
away places she had recently
toured. I wanted to know what
was she doing to continue her
education while enjoying the glit-
ter and splendour of the United
States and the international ex-
tension of her singing career. Her
reply was that she was seri-
ously continuing her education
through private tutoring.
Let the Star know that
Rihanna is a beauty with brains.
Being a product of Barbados, she
is most unlikely to be the run-
of-the-mill entertainment success
who hits high and then drops
low, gets slogged. 'stoned'.
duped, or whatever, and disap-
pears from the scene. One day
they may even see her as a highly

Giant squid caught on ...
(From page XII)
Kubodera of the museum's zoology department said in an in-
terview on Friday. "We believe these are the first ever moving
pictures of a giant squid."
Little was known until recently about the creature thought to
have inspired the myth of the "kraken", a tentacled monster that
was blamed by sailors for sinking ships off Norway in the 18th DC
Unconfirmed reports say giant squid can grow up to 20 meters In'
long, but according to scientists they are unlikely to pose a threat
to ships because they spend their lives hundreds of meters under 1
The Japanese research team tracked giant squid by fol-
lowing their biggest predators sperm whales as they
gathered to feed near the Ogasawara islands, 1,000 km (620
miles) south of Tokyo between September and December.
They succeeded in taking the first still photographs of a living
giant squid in 2005, observing that it moved around in the water 2.
more actively than previously thought, and captured food by en-
tangling prey in its powerful tentacles.
The latest specimen, whose formalin-preserved carcass
was displayed at a news conference at the museum in Tokyo,
was caught on a baited hook laid 650 meters (2,150 ft) under
the sea off the Ogasawara islands, on December 4, the scien-
A squid about 55 cm (21.65 inches) in length had been at-

"The men are under pressure to behave themselves," says In-

Mr Yadav was candid enough to say the project is also helping
him keep an eye on police atrocities.
"I get to know of policemen who indulge in corruption or tor-
ture inmates in police lockups."
But some women's rights activists, such as Kalpana Upadhayay
from Nagpur, are sceptical about how far-reaching the impact of
this technology will be in villages.
She says: "Women in villages are suppressed and they are
scared of complaining against their men."
Ms Upadhayay also thinks the villagers, for whom this

She doesn't doubt the project's good intentions, but she be-

National Biosafety Framework Project
Brief Introduction to Guyana's
Draft Biotechnology, Biosafety &
Biosecurity policy Part 3
Current Regulatory situation Pertaining to GMOs [Continued
from last week]
Guyana has a plethora of laws and regulations but none pres-
ently fulfills the entire spectrum of requirements of the
Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety. Though the EPA Act of 1996
articulates an EIA requirement for GMO projects the details
for such a complex process have never been defined or tested.
Contextually, the EPA Act is premised on five principles of en-
vironmental management for the determination of environ-
mental impact and risk, namely:
> The "Polluter pays" principle
> The "Precautionary" principle
> The "Strict liability" principle
> The "Avoidance" principle
> The "State of technology" principle
'The New Biosafety Regulatory Regime and Need.
The competent body shall be the National Biotechnology and
Biosafety Council of Guyana (NBBC) (or National Biosafety Au-
thority (NBA)), a semi-autonomous body that shall be set up ini-
lially as a semi-autonomous body within the EPA. All appoint-
ments to the sub-Committee shall be for a five-year term. The Presi-
dential Adviser on Science and Technology (or designated Minister
responsible for Science and Technology) shall appoint members.
The composition of the NBBC (or NBA) shall reflect the present
reprcsentation-on the National Coordinating Committee of this NBF
Project. However, efforts must be made to include persons from
the private sector. Members of the NBBC (or NBA) shall include
expertise in human and veterinary medicine, agriculture, plant breed-
ing. microbiology, molecular biology, environmental protection, food
production and processing, social science, economics and military
science. The NBBC will provide oversight to the Guyana Biotech-
nology Corporation (GBC), which shall be legitimised by an act of
Parliament. The GBC shall be established at either lAST (Institute
of Applied Science and Technology) or NARI after an assessment
of institutional mandate and ease of alignment.
Suggested Composition of the NBBC (or NBA)
The NBBC (or NBA) shall be an independent regulatory
agency by law constituted as a multisectoral body comprising

Promote accumulation of knowledge, dissemination of infor-
mation, create active dialogue between researchers and other spe-
cialists, politicians and other citizens;
Draw up, implement and monitor appropriate occupational
safety protocols at work places where biotechnology procedures'
are used or products handled;
Advise on appropriate labelling of GMOs in'feedstuffs and
feeds sold in or imported to or through Guyana;
Defend the image of the country in the field of biotechnol-
ogy. biosafety and biosecurity;
Create and maintain a bio-informatics database as well as an
information and promotion website;
Representing the biotechnology industry overseas
Regulation and administration by the GBC, and assisted by
NBBIU shall include, but not limited to the following:
Agricultural law enforcement, crops and livestock disease con-
trol, registration of livestock importation and agricultural products;
Environmental impact assessment and food safety review
Industrial practices review and import/export management
Occupational food safety standards review functions;
Customs and excise functions with respect to GMOs;
Border control and forensic science with respect to GMOs;
Policy integration and institutional coordination functions;
Marine research management, stock assessment and impact
The GBC will develop a regulatory framework for GMOs. One
of the key elements to consider when developing the regulatory
framework is public involvement in the decision-making processes.
Once a regulatory framework for GMOs is in place, requests for
commercial approval of individual GMOs can be processed. The
decision making process needed to provide an entry point for con-
sultation with the public, and provisions for taking into account
feedback from groups of the public. That entry point could take a
number of forms: such as a committee containing representatives
of the public, feedback through a focal point, or a formal process
of submission of a decision to the public. In addition, there had to
be a recourse procedure for appeal of a decision, as well as access
The decision-making process includes a risk assessment, which
according to Codex Alimentarius, is defined as "a scientifically based
process consisting of the following steps:
(i) hazard identification,
(ii) hazard characterisation,
(iii) exposure assessment, and
(iv) risk characterisation.
After individual GM products have been approved, the regula-
tory framework may include provisions for post-release monitor-
ing of the impacts of GMOs, where feedback from.the public, es-
pecially those in rural areas where they are produced, would be of
All GMOs must be identified and labelled such that they can
be traced. Products thereof must also be labelled stating the fact
that there is evidence of the presence of GMOs in the product.
Labelling is also required to indicate that the presence of GMOs in
a product cannot be excluded, if this were the case. Further, the
label must forewarn of any allergies, reactions or other side effects
that the GMOs or products thereof may cause. The GNBS in col-

laboration with the GA/FDD can convene a select committee to
draft and have ratified, labelling standards for GMOs in Guyana.
This policy proposes that the Organisation for Economic Co-
operation and Development (OECD) system of unique identifiers
for transgenic plants be used when referring to GE crops. A unique
nine-digit letter and number code is given to each new transgenic
plant that is approved for commercial use and becomes its name
worldwide. So, for instance, any unique variety of maize developed
to be resistant to insect pests has a unique identifier of MON-
00810-6 (Monsanto) or cotton denoted by DD-01951A
(DuPont). OECD countries are already using the system. The EU
recently adopted it as its system for generating unique identifiers
and it has been recognized as a mechanism for unique identification
to be used within the context of the Cartagena Protocol. The OECD
is now considering how the identifier tool can be extended beyond
crops to micro-organisms and animals

mote technology development and entrepreneurship in biotechnol-
ogy. To ensure the separation of regulatory functions from biotech-

films that every, actor begins to

up watching movies that gave
me a supposedly ideal view of;
how a hero behaves. Somewhere
that got stuck in my mind. Most
of the initial work that an actor

The TADA court will take
up that day the quantum of sen-

seeking relief under the Probation
of Offenders Act for good con-
duct while being on bail.
A battery of lawyers, in-
cluding V.R. Manohar, Santosh
Mansingde, Karan Singh and
Farana Shah, represented Dutt.
The other seven accused
are Russi Molla and Kersi
Adjania, former additional cus-

When Dutt appeared for
bail Nov 28, it was extended un-

ther extended until Thursday.

ended, there are joyful tidings for Bollywood's beauty queen
warya Rai. She is back in Jaipur shooting for Ashutosh
wariker's "Jodha-Akbar" with Hrithik Roshan.
"It's going greal!'" Aishwarya exulted from Jaipur as she prepared for
he day's shoot.
So, has she done any horse riding and sword-fightng as yet'"
"None of the above. But I rode an elephant for a scene. And his name
was Lakhi. After 'Dhoom 2' and its hi-tech ambience and accessories, enter-
ing a world of elephants and Mughal grandeur is a true culture shock. And a
real challenge for both Hrithik and me after 'Dhoom 2'," Aishwarya told
"But what's the life of an actor without challenges? I'm at a stage in my
career where I need to constantly re-invent myself."
About the elephant ride, Aishwarya explained with a giggle, "It wasn't
exactly a unique experience. I've ridden an elephant before for Gurinder
Chaddha's 'Bride & Prejudice', though very briefly.
"In 'Jodha-Akbar' everything is far more elaborate. I guess I must
be the only actress of my generation to have taken two elephant rides."
Twin baby girls arrived on Thursday for Sean
"Diddy" Combs and his girlfriend Kim Porter.
One of the tins, D'Lila Star, was named after
Porter's grandmother Lila Star. OK. that's a nice
name, and a good reason.
And her little sister? She was named Jesse
James, after Diddy's grandmother, Jessie.
You read that correctly. Somehow, Diddy's
grandma's name morphed from the feminine 'Jessie'
into the name of the West's notorious outlaw, Jesse
James, without a blip.
There's no indication that Grandma Combs
was a six gun-toting outlaw who waylaid stage-
coaches and robbed banks throughout the Old
West. It must be a Hollywood thing.
