CURSING
CANCELS FLIGHT
SAN FRANCISCO, (Reuters) Northwest Airlines
cancelled a flight set to leave from Las Vegas to
Detroit after the captain cursed on a cell phone in
a bathroom, then swore at one of the 180 passen-
gers on the plane, Officials said yesterday.
"He used what was described to me as rude lan-:


guage," Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration, said about Friday's incident on Northwest Flight 1190.
"At some point during the boarding process, he left the cock-
pit, went into the front lavatory, locked the door and continued his
conversation. Passengers who were boarding the aircraft could hear
his end of the conversation through the lavatory door."
When the captain emerged from the bathroom, a passenger con-
fronted him about his behaviour, reportedly prompting more curs-
ing by the pilot of the B757 aircraft. Local police questioned the
captain, whose name was not released, and determined there was


no cause to conduct a sobriety test, Gregor said.
But Northwest cancelled the flight and flew the pilot
back to his base in Detroit.

Majority of Britons say



Brown unfit to lead


poll

By Adrian Croft

LONDON, (Reuters) Fi-
nance minister Gordon
Brown, overwhelming
favourite to succeed Tony
Blair as prime minister, suf-
fered a blow today when an
opinion poll showed more
than half of Britons thought
he was unfit to lead the coun-
try.
In another setback for
Brown, a newspaper said there
was growing pressure for an-
other member of the cabinet to
challenge the Chancellor of the
Exchequer for the leadership of
the ruling Labour Party when
Blair steps down.
Blair is widely expected to
quit in June or July after a de-


cade in office. With no serious
challenger yet emerging, Brown
has been seen as a virtually au-
tomatic choice to succeed Blair as
party leader and prime minister.
But some Labour politicians
doubt Brown's leadership creden-
tials and opinion polls show he
would fare badly against David
Cameron, leader of the main op-
position Conservatives.
The Sunday Times said
only 27 per cent of 2,218
people questioned in a
YouGov poll thought Brown
was fit to be prime minister
after a row last week over his
handling of pensions. Fifty-
seven per cent thought him
unfit.
The poll showed Britons
were losing faith in Brown's stew-
ardship of the economy his
strong point until now.
Forty-one per cent thought


Brown was doing a good job as
finance minister, down from 51
per cent in March.
Since then, Brown has de-
livered a budget that cut in-
come tax but clawed back rev-
enues elsewhere.
Critics acctise Brown of
contributing to pension fund
shortfalls by removing tax
breaks for funds in 1997, a
charge Brown and Blair deny.
But opponents have seized on
newly released documents
showing Brown ignored a
. warning on the risks.
The poll showed the Con-
servatives stretching their lead
to eight percentage points, up
from six a month ago.
The next national election
is not likely until 2009 but
Labour is expected to do badly
in local council elections in
May.


The Sunday Telegraph said
Home Secretary (interior minis-
ter) John Reid was pressing En-
vironment Secretary David
Miliband to challenge for the
leadership to stop Brown tak-
ing over.
If Miliband refused, Reid
himself was prepared to chal-
lenge Brown, it said.
Miliband has repeatedly
said he has no plans to challenge
for the leadership, while Reid
has not ruled out standing.
In further bad news for the
government, The Observer
newspaper said a poll it com-
missioned had delivered a
"damning verdict" on Blair's de-
cade in office.
The poll of more than
2,000 Britons showed people
believed the country was a more
dangerous, less happy and less
pleasant place to live than it was
before Blair came to power.
Fifty-eight per cent
judged Iraq to be Blair's big-
gest failure while almost half
thought him "out of touch,
untrustworthy and overly
concerned with spin", the
poll said.


Britons held by Iran can

sell stories to media

LONDON. iReuters) The 15 British sailors and marines
held by Iran for 13 days will be allowed to sell their sto-
ries to thv media, in a break with usual rules. Britain's
Defence Ministry said yesterday.
Ser ing personnel were not normally allowed to sell their
stories but the ministry decided to grant the' 15 permission due
to the huge media interest. said a minisr\ spokeswoman.
. These are considered to be exceptional circumstancess" she said.
The spokeswoman said the 15, freed Last Thursday after
being seized b% hanion forces in the Shari al-Arab'waterway
between Iraq and Iran. would be able to keep the money they
received
Media reports ha\c said the\ could earn as much as 250,(K0f
pounds i-.493.5(.0)) between them.
Media organizations had already\ offered large sums to the
fanubes of the sailors and marines and the mirustry felt letmng
the 15 sell their o n stones was "ihe most pragmatic thing to
do" the spokes. womn said
The standoff over the 15 made daily headlines in Britain
and around the world. Several of the sailors and marines. par-
ticularly the onl\ woman among them. Fase. Tumey. became
well known after iheN tiere shown on Iraman television.
Iran said the 15 Mere detained ror entering its waters ille-
galil Bnrain said they were in Iraqi waters.
On their return to'Bntiain, the sailors and marines said the\
%ere blindfolded. bound, kept in isolation and told that they
faced up .. seven years in jail
The decision to allow the 15 t10 sell their stories was
criticised by some nuhitran cormnentators and pohucians.
"It's lust unprecedented." Colonel Bob Stewart, a former
commander of Bnush peacekeeping forces in Bosnia, told BBC
tlekision Iran's seizure of the 15 %kas "hardly one of the most
glonous jrnnals of royal naval storyy. he said.
Nick Harve\, defence spokesman for the opposition L4b-
eral Dem. crats. .aid the decision would "rinse eyebrows".
"I sit cerelh hope this will not backfire into a loss of
public s nimpathy for the service personnel. The ministry
would h. nell advised to take a fresh look at the rules and
consider whether iheY need revising," he said in a state-
ment.

U.S. judge sets bail for




anti-Castro Cuban exile


By Aracely Lazcano

EL PASO, Texas, (Reuters) -
A United States judge said on
Friday Cuban exile and
former CIA operative Luis
Posada Carriles should be
freed on bail until his trial
on immigration fraud
charges, but he remained be-
hind bars at the request of
federal prosecutors.
Judge Kathleen Cardone
said in a written order 79-year-
old Posada Carriles, despite "a
controversial past" as an oppo-
nent of Cuban leader Fidel
Castro, was not a flight risk be-


cause he is "old, infirm and has
strong ties to the community."
She set bail at a total of
$350,000 and said Posada
Carriles must wear an electronic
monitoring device and'live under
house arrest with his wife in
Miami.
He was not immediately re-
leased because prosecutors
asked that he be detained while
they consider an appeal to a
higher court. His attorney, Felipe
Millan, told Reuters he hoped .
to get Posada Carriles out of jail
by the end of this week.
Posada Carriles, who took
part in the failed 1962 Bay of


Pigs invasion against Castro, is
wanted for trial in Cuba and
Venezuela on charges he
planned the 1976 bombing of a
Cuban airliner that killed 73
people. He is also accused of
tourist bombings in Havana in
1997.
Posada Carriles has been in
U.S. custody in El Paso since
May 2005 after entering the
country illegally seeking asy-
lum.
The U.S. government has
fought his asylum request, but
does not want to hand him over
to Cuba or Venezuela on the
grounds that he would not re-


ceive a fair trial and could be
killed.
He has been a political prob-
lem for the Bush administration be-
cause his past activities are viewed
as terrorism by his opponents, but
he is a hero to many in the politi-
cally powerful Cuban exile commu-
nity in the U.S.
The government tried to
find another country to take
Posada Carriles, buz none would
accept him.
He was indicted in Janu-
ary on seven counts of immi-
gration fraud and is sched-
uled to be tried on May 11 in
El Paso.


Cops, prisoners scamper for safety


By Radhica SOOKRAJ

(TRINIDAD GUARDIAN) -
Mon Repos police officers
and prisoners were sent
scampering for safety Friday
when a motorbike which was
parked in the station's base-
ment exploded.
As fire erupted, seven of-
ficers who were on duty at the
Mon Repos Police Station ran
out of the building, temporarily
abandoning their duties.
The officers who ran out
of the building when they
heard the explosion were
forced to go back in to round,
up all the prisoners in the
cell and handcuff them before
bringing them out of the
building to safety.
Police said 21 other officers
were out of the station conduct-
ing routine exercises at the time


of the incident.
The station also houses of-
ficers assigned to the Mon
Repos southern division high-
way patrol unit.
An officer said while sitting
in the charge room he smelt
something burning.
"At first we thought some-
body was burning something
outside. But when we walked
out to investigate we heard two
explosions, one after the other,"
the officer said.
Acting fire officer Ojeer
Karmally said his charges no-
ticed smoke spiralling from
the police building, located
close by. This was followed
by a distress call shortly af-
ter.
"We noticed smoke coming
from the building and immedi-
ately we responded," Karmally
said.

He said firemen were able
to extinguish the fire before it
reached the upper floors which
houses the charge room and dor-
mitories.
One motorbike was com-
pletely destroyed while another
parked closely by was also
scorched.
Luckily, there were no cars
parked in the basement at the
time of the explosion.
"The building did not suf-
fer any structural damages but
we are continuing investigations
to find out the cause of this
fire," Karmally said.


"It was good luck that this
happened when most people
were outside, because if a car had
exploded, we would have had
casualties and extensive damage
to the building," one officer said.
By 2.40 pm, officers were
allowed to return to the station.
Several handcuffed prisoners
were also brought back into the
cells.
Police are now investigating
the cause of the explosion.
Assistant'Commissioner
of Police (South) Phillip

vestigations.

Editorial) Dismissal, probe demands


THE growing pains being experienced from the
Caribbean's hosting of Cricket World Cup 2007 are re-
sulting in increasing demands for dismissals of West
Indian players and the disbanding of the current West
Indies Cricket Board and management.
As governments of some regional jurisdictions be-
gin to feel the heat, cabinet ministers and officials of Lo-
cal Organising Committees (LOCs) are also
echoing complaints against the International Cricket
Council and Cricket World Cup West Indies Inc. for im-
position of regulations that have resulted in very nega-
tive results,:
The ICC itself has come under sharp criticisms in
countries like Britain and India, the latest being that of
the former chairman of the England and Wales Cricket
Board, Lord MacLaurin, who wants an urgent review of
the ICC with a view to changing its present crop of con-
trolling officials.
Yesterday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India
(BCCI) was winding up a crucial two-day emergency
meeting to come to grips with the sensational develop-
ment of the Indian team's humiliation.


They had to exit CWC 07 at the preliminary stage of
the game. Finding a new captain and a new coach
.were top priorities for yesterday's meeting.
In Pakistan, whose own national team suffered a
similar humiliation and, worse, having had to return
home amid ongoing investigations into the circum-
stances of the sudden death in Jamaica of their coach,
Bob Woolmer, the future of the country's cricket board
and internationally famous players remains uncertain.
Our own West Indies team players, having so deeply
let us down to date for the World Cup tournament, must
be made to realise the terrible hurt they have caused.
It is a hurt they can still minimise and, hopefully re-
move, by surprising us to still reach at least the semi-
finals.
As for the current board and management of the
WICB, a complete overhaul may be difficult to resist from
.some of its territorial affiliates.
Increasing demands are also expected for indepen-
dent probes into the functioning of its subsidiary, CWC
Inc that must bear much of the blame for negotiations
with the ICC that have resulted in the scale of embar-
rassing and costly problems encountered by the LOCs


of the host countries.
This, of course, is not to exonerate LOCs from some
of the problems that firm, collective resistance could have
avoided.
With 20 days yet to go before the. World Cup final in
Barbados, post mortem results on the problems en-
countered region-wide, would be some time in coming.

World


Cup fiasco


- Crucial questions for governments and WICB


By Rickey Singh

AS THE West Indies cricket
team struggle, against all
odds, to secure a place in the
semi-finals for Cricket World
Cup 07, the most hurtful
question remains: Who are
responsible for causing
us more depression, more
pain, more shame for this
biggest, historic event we
have ever hosted our team,
the West Indies
Cricket Board (WICB) or
the host governments for the
tournament?
The pathetic sce-_____
narios we have been
left to view extend to
the repeated humili-
ating crumbling of the
West Indies amid
blame-shifting be-
twccn WI selectors
and team and the
scorching rebukes of
retired regional stars
of the gained.
Add it i on all y.
there are the ex-
aniples of representa-
tives of governments,
the WICB and its -.-
subsidiary, CWC
West Indies Inc.,
scrambling for cover
over much of what
have already gone so
badly wrong.
From Jamaica in
the northern subregion, to
Guyana on the South American
mainland, in Barbados (venue
for the final-on April 28) as
well as other Eastern Caribbean
host countries, the similarities in
complaints cannot be escaped.
The CWC CEO Chris
Dehring, therefore, felt com-
pelled to disclose last week that
the University of the West
Indies would be commissioned
to assess the region's economic
performance in hosting the
World Cup.
In the absence of any spe-
ciic mandate, personnel and
:i .l;a]i thits looks more like
an attempt at damage control
than anything else.
For their part, CARICOM
cabinet ministers and even a lew'
I leads of Government have been


openly pouring blame on the
ICC and WICB. when the real-
it)y suggests that. ulliniately, the
region s governments cannot
honestly escape their own
failures to show sufficient inter-
est and competence in the long
period of negotiations that had
followed our successful bid in
1998 to host World Cup '07.
I or example. when the gov-
Cernments were aIlcIted Itl the cir-
ctLinstainces that forced the Bar-
badian business executive and
former cricketer, Rawle
Brancker. to resign in Septem-
ber, 2005 as chairman of the


CHRIS DEHRING


Board of CWC West Indies Inc,
and his subsequent suggestion
for an independent "due dili-
gence and forensic audit" to de-
termine transparency
in management negotiations in
.the best interest of the host
countries, they were to react
with a surprising hands-off at-
titude.
Two Prime Ministers were
to engage in a semantic exercise
About governments' interference
in the internal management of a
private entity like the WICB.
Did they and their counter-
parts considered that there is,
ait ,i a tmor'il atrgueincti -
if blocked by the wi]l of legal-
ism to intervene in the best
interest of West Indies cricket
and. ill this particular
instance. World Cup 07?


Now that crics
of dissatisfaction are erupting all
around from the primary stake-
holder of West Indies cricket.-
the people, in whose name at
least USS500 million has been
invested for CWC 07 gov-
ernIllent ministers who were
themselves deeply involved
in planning arrangements, would
like us to think that they were
"mislcdl", as these lcolie to face
the harsh realities of mistakes
made.
S Who mislede" them? When
was this "discovery"of expedi-
ency made. having for so long
sat with the WICB's representa-
tives, and their principal
n e g o ti at o r. C h r i s
Dehring in compliance with de-
mands ofl the ICC that had the
effect of seemingly treating the
SICC as a sort of supra-
government as they surrendered
the region's sovereignty in pre-
serving cherished cultural tradi-
tions?
The consequences
include lthe exorbitant,
"unrealistic fees l'oitickets., rang-
ing from US$25 for a single
game, and clinibing lo US$100
and more; as well as
t h e s u ff o c a t i n g
security arrangements that have
choked the joys out of crowd
attendance and participation; as
well as the losses being counted
by hotel and tour operators.
Not only were restrictions
placed on musical instruments
and banners but on freedom to
eat and drink to make a mock-
ery of a traditional cricket car-
nival culture.
What cannot be rationalised
in any context of "the glorious
uncertainties" of cricket, is the
extent to which the WICB/
CWC West Indies Inc managed
to have things going their way
-much to the happiness of the
ICC that has been staging the
World Cup since 1975 and has
refined the art of manipulation/
control for this, its highly prof-
itable ":Irophyl ".

"SUNSET" LEGISLATION
The W IC 1-. currenItly
headed b\ Trinidad and
Tobago's Ken (Gordon. had.
sitran el\. appointed its very inl


fluential CEO. Dehring. two
years before the CWC West
Indies Inc Board became func-
tional in 2003, and has a lot to
explain for much of what have
gone wrong in this World Cup.
At that time. the WICB Presi-
dent was Barbados' Tedd\
Griffith.
Dehring was to emerge as
tile most popular face al mtteet-
ings of CARICOM ministers
responsible for sectors
like tourism, legal affairs and se-
curity for CWC 07 as well as
briefings'provided directly to



The


Column

Heads of Government at re-
gional conferences on prepara-
tions for this year's historic
event.
The so-called."Sunset" leg-
islation that ALL host govern-
ments had to enact as a condi-
tionality to be a-venue for allot-
ted fixtures, that had its origin
with the ICC, was drafted with
full collaboration between
CARICOM Attorneys General
and the CWC's Board.
. The legislation dealt with,
among a range of issues, includ-
ing stadia-readiness, security,
marketing brands, sale and dis-
tribution of tickets, visas and
accommodation arrangements.
So why these simulated an-
ger by government officials
about being "misled"? It may be
tempting, in the present circulm-
stances, fo: parliamentary op-
position parties to now seek to
exploit the fiasco being experi-
enced for tIhe World Cup.
They. however, also need to
Iirst renlinld themselves of, their


own failures to do their home-
work before unanimously en-
dorsing, with some expedient
reservations, the "Sunset" leg-
islation that include provisions
that have resulted in harsh nega-
tive impact across the hosting
countries.
Passage of the "Sunset
legislation" was itself preceded
by a surprising level of uncriti-
cal acceptance by government
ministers and advisers of the re-
porting frlomn
the CWC West Indies Inc, dating
back to a briefing of tourism


ministers in New York in June
2003, by its CEO, Dehring.
The presentation had in-
cluded projections on
expected overseas visitors -
at least 100,000 --- television
viewers of approximately 1.7
billion and sale of one mil-
lion tickets for nine venues
with the overseas package in-
volving accommodation, air-
line travel and entrance at
venues for the matches. We
now know something of as-
surances and expectations
that could not, for varying
reasons, be realized.
The thousands of no-show
visitors for the tournament:
shocking absence of
CARICOM nationals that have
resulted in even more thousands
of empty seals at the various
new and refurbish .t.adi:
(matches in Guyana being an
outstanding exception): and tlhe
chorus of vendors'
lamentation of "people not,
buying", could lead to a long pa-


per chase to unearth the truth.
There is also the required
explanation for what went
wrong with the promised 1.7
billion television viewers for
Jamaica's showcasing of the
grand "West Indian High En-
ergy" cultural event at
Trelawany on March 11 to
formally launch the World Cup.
Jamaica. as things turned
out. had to bear,
unexpectedly, at least half of the
estimated USS2 million.
It would be good to learn
what efforts were made to
embrace successes or avoid
problems experienced by
South Africa in its hosting of
World Cup 2003 in con-
trast to our own current bit-
ter experience in,' for
example, accessing tickets.
South Africa had early de-
termined that admission to the
games for CWC 2003 would be
based-on its own "social and
economic realities". It was a po-
sition with which the ICC had
to concur.
Consequently, it was pos-
sible for South Africans, who
had been guaranteed approxi-
mately 40 per cent of ticket
sales, to make purchases for
multiple matches at various
venues. For instance, US$13 for
two games; US$90-US$100 for
five games and US$65-US$135
for six games.
Chris Dehring told the me-
dia in Guyana last week that
they.(ICC/CWC) had nothing to
do with pricing tickets for the
tournament. This was to be
quickly rejected by LOCs in
Guyana and Barbadcs. They
have argued that from the begin-
ning, fixing prices and market-
ing of tickets have been a col-
laborative effort.
Now questions are also be-
ing raised about the revenue-
sharing aspect for CWC 07,
.with Jamaica's Finance Minis-
ter, Omar Davies, more than
hinting that a legal course may
have to be pursued should un-
satisfactory conditions be dis-
covered, contrary to prior ar-
rangements.
The reality, as Davies
should' soon learn to his own
disappointment. is that the
ICC's interest would have been
well protected in the agreements
entered into for Cricket World
Cup 07 to bc hosted in our neck

KITES s',l be flying
higher here tomorrow ana an
those involved in bringing off
the Cricket World Cup
matches at the stadium at
Providence would be showing
their colours with more glee
thai others.
They deserve the accolades
and-kites this Easter Monday
should be soaring in their
honour far and high.
In spite of the gloom and
misgivings now surfacing over
aspects of the CWC tourna-
ment, Guyana has somehow
managed to be blessed by some
astounding matches
(yesterday's between
Bangladesh and South Africa
was a shocker) and record
crowds for the games so far.
Things have been so good
that those who have long, with
good cause, associated cricket
with rain in this country, now
have to look for another refrain
besides "Every time they talk
'bout cricket, water come to me
eye...
Rain and cricket are no
longer synonymous i3 Gu(uyana!
Thank God!
It rained more than cats and
dogs last week but rain did not
stop play at Providence.
Providence has proven
providential for Guyana and the
sour pusses have been put to
.hame and flight. , i he 'amins
'-r!d 'hem in if. ; '!in:r r


its bid for games in the 2010
Champions Trophy.-
It's been a good showing
and that's a lot to be thankful
for; so let's fly the kites with
greater alacrity this year.
And if you see Dr. Frank
Anthony, Culture, Youth and
Sport Ministei aid chairman of
the CWC Local Organising
Committee, and his band run-
ning around in some kite flying
fun tomorrow, give them a
hand to get those kites up.
They have every reason to be
flying high.
He told me last Tuesday
that while the number of visi-
tors is lower than what Guyana
had projected for the six Super
Eight matches, the country can
expect benefits long after the
games are over.
He said thousands of visi-
tors have come in for the games,
noting seats for the game last
Sunday between the West
Indies and Sri Lanka Sunday at
the Guyana National Stadium at
Providence were sold out.
He said Guyana had ex-
pected more visitors in for the
games and reported that "more
than six thousand people have
come in than for the same pe-
riod last year".
"'A/- il, we have fallen
short, the fact is that many
people have come into Guyana
and once they go back and tell
people about the country, it
would have a multiplier elfcicc."
He said the ICC had pro-
jected a worldwide TV audience
of 2.2 billion for the games but


"People are seeing and
learning more about Guyana
since that TV audience is still
there."
He said Guyanese in
Canada had called him to say
they were seeing the matches


here on satellite and wanted to
see more scenes of their home
country during the breaks.
"The investment that we
are making now is not only for
the immediate future but for a-
more medium, long term plan


where we are targeting people
from cricketing countries to
come here for other matches or
even come to visit us. We want
people to know more about
Guyana and the CWC puts
Guyana prominently on the


map", he said.
He shouldn't worry too
much about getting on the map.
Providence has been provi-
dential in that respect.
Take time out and take a
bow, guys.

Antigua WTO victory over U.S.




points way for small nations


(The writer is a business
executive and former
Caribbean diplomat)

IF SMALL countries intend
to participate meaningfully
in the global trading system,
they have to be prepared to
face the cost of arbitrating
disputes at the World Trade
Organisation~ (WTO) and to
be creative in the ways in
which these costs are met, in-
cluding through public-pri-


vate partnerships,
There has been a tendency
to characterise the WTO dis-
pute settlement machinery as
weighted against small coun-
tries. Indeed, the WTO has
been equated with the World
Bank and IMF as the three pil-
lars of globalisation that disad-
vantage small countries.
Yet, the WTO, unlike the
IMF and World Bank, is a truly
universal organisation in which
each member state has a single


and equal vote. And, while its
negotiating procedures have
been dominated by the
industrialized nations and, more
recently, the large developing
countries, small developing
countries have failed to be ag-
gressive enough in championing
their own rights by forging alli-
ances with one another.
Small developing coun-
tries also make a mistake in
not participating more fully
in the work of the WTO on a


daily basis at a high level.
For, if trade in goods and ser-
vices is the means by which
they have to live, participa-
tion in making international
trade rules and overseeing
how they are implemented is
vitally important to them.
There is evidence that small
countries can succeed in the.
WTO even on their own if they
are determined enough.

STHE GOVERNM IENT OF IUYANA/NICIL/PU ARE NOi" (T BOUND TO ACCEPT THE
I Y QLHF O :-i"N TF;, !r-


history when, in March 2003,
it won a landmark case against
the United States at the WTO.
Since then, two more-
WTO panels have found for
Antigua and Barbuda at
appeals; the last panel
formally reported its findings
against the U.S. at the end of
March.
The issue, simply put, was:
did the government of. the
United States violate its
commitment under the General
Agreement in Trade in Services
by prohibiting through
regulation and legislation the
delivery of gaming services from
Antigua and Barbuda via the
Internet?
Each of the panels found
that the U.S. had violated its
commitment and dismissed a
U.S. argument that it prohibited
all Internet gaming via the
Internet including domestic
betting and, therefore, was
not discriminating against
Antigua and Barbuda.
I declare a particular inter-
est and, therefore, a bias in this
matter since I was Antigua and
Barbuda's Ambassador to the
WTO when this case was first
brought and won.
At stake were not only vi-
tal revenues to the govern-
ment, but also the jobs of
many people employed di-
rectly by the industry or in-
directly through the ,,^,-
and .7!vices purchased lo-
cally by the Internet gaming
companies.
Two successive Antigua and
Barbuda governments from
opposing political parties held
the view that the case had to be
pursued because of the duty of
care to their citizens.
The decision on whether to
-proceed hung more on the cost
of the WTO procedure than it
did on the fact thtu little Antigua
;'nd Barbu&d would be confront-
ing the might. U.S. Whin !ne
latter point .was a factor for
deep consideration because of
fears of punishment, it was out-
weighed by the necessity to
stand up for the country's
rights.
The cost of the case was
prohibitive. It was estimated
then that it would cost in excess
of US$1 million. With the ap-
peals process, the cost has un-
.doubtedly been higher.
If the Antigua and Barbuda
government hadto pay the le-
gal costs, it could not do it. and
would not have done it. Priori-
ti;s would have demanded that
the money be spent on roads,
health, education and wages and
salaries.
in the end, a public-uri-
vate partnership was forged
in which the government pro-
vided the diplomatic and po-
litical sources and 'anv -"
-" co; ni i ei' i 'the iodus-
try paid ihe legal firni. di. -


rectly to conduct the legal re-
search (hundreds of docu-
ments) and prepare the legal
arguments. The industry
recognized that they had as
much to lose or gain as the


country itself.
It has been said that
Antigua and Barbuda's victory
is ineffective because the rem-
edies provided by the WTO are
inadequate. For example, impo-
sition of retaliatory tariffs by
Antigua and Barbuda on exports
from the United States will not
have sufficient impact to induce
U.S. compliance and will also
negatively impact the cost of
U.S. goods needed by the
Antigua and Barbuda comrmr.2
nity.
There is, of course, some
truth in that, and it points to ur-
gency for joint action by'all
small developing countries to
advocate change in the penalties
that an offending country would
be required to pay.
But, if the U.S.
government refuses to start
talking seriously with the
Antigua and Barbuda
authorities about how a form
of compliance could be
achieved in a manner that is
acceptable to both parties,
then Antigua tild Barbuda
may have no choice but to
apply the tariffs which the
WTO, panel sets, and get
their imports elsewhere -
Canada, for instance.
Such a situation may not
harm the U.S. financially, but it
would most certainly hurt its
moral standing as a global leader
and a democratic nation com-
mitted to upholding rih'"
,le U.S. government also
has to consider that it is the
greatest user of the WTO dis-
pute procedure; it is not in its
interest to undermine a process
from wVhich it has benefited and
which maintains order in inter-
national trade.
The consequence would
be to encourage other coun-
tries to ignore WTO ri d-
and to unravo '" "gs

Builders






or fools?


POLITICS, as we have clearly seen, is extremely divisive and
acrimonious in general, and this does not exclude our
Guyanese political culture.
People seem to lose their sense of moral dignity and profes-
sionalism on the account of personal biases and I dare say even
hatred for those aligned on the other side of the political divide.
What is of concern to me, much greater than the object and
origin of this acrimony and hatred, is the generational implications
of the divisive, anti-development attitude of those who call them-
selves Guyanese, but in reality, Guyana and the struggles of this
country occupy a very low position indeed on their list of priori-
ties.
It was truly an overwhelming experience for me to sit in
.the spanking new national stadium at Providence and watch
the superb manifestation of class and excellence demonstrated
by Guyanese volunteers, Guyanese police officers, Guyanese
security personnel, and Guyanese patrons.
The greatest sense of pride, however, came from the knowi-
edge that this is "we thing'. In the face of low expectations and
critical scepticism by many within the region, we pulled it off.
Congratulations are in order to President Bharrat Jagdeo for a
job well done.
It is indeed .a great enigma for me to grapple with the truth
that while many people outside of Guyana are celebrating Guyana's
accomplishments in this World Cup, there are Guyanese, residing
in Guyana, who are seeking opportunities to find fault with and to
criticise the government's efforts to host this historical event.
Of special concern also is the insensitive, unpatriotic behaviour
of some of our Guyanese journalists in seeking to publicise Guyana
-to the outside world in a negative light.
While I believe in and will advocate for freedom of the
press, I must also insist that freedom comes with great respon-
sibilities. Where is your sense of national pride and patrio-
tism? Who else but yourself you are hurting, when you high-
light the shortcomings of your own country, not in an attempt
to improve, but rather to disparage the efforts of the govern-
ment?
We all must agree that it is not every position or decision taken
hy government we will support. Each of us has a constitutional
right to disagree with government ii-."i',, values are at variance.
However, it is wicked and destructive to 'bad mouth' or speak
ill of the government when it has done something that it deserves
to be honoured for.
I say with no apologies the government should not be ridi-
culed for its efforts to make all Guyana proud by the hosting of
this World Cup; it should be congratulated.
This attitude by some, of refusing to 'give jack his jacket', or
giving honour where it is due, is indicative of a disgruntled, jealous
spirit.
It is not consistent with the Christian conduct to magnify the
wrongs that people do and ignore the rights. If we will be the plumb
line of righteous standards in the nation, we must not only be quick
to protest when the government does wrong we must also be
the first to give praise when it does right.
It is a true saying that we will only be remembered for two
things in this life the problems we help to solve or the ones we
help to create. Let us labour for justice and the establishment of
truth.
--"s. the government if you have to when justice and truth
Uppo- '. .' not oppose for the sake of op-
is at stake. But for God's sa u ...
posing. Do not find a fault for the sake of finding lauit.
Put your hands to the wheel and help to build this great na-
tion. To break and destroy the nation that feeds you is the behaviour
of a fool.
Who are you? A builder or a fool?

MURDER stalked Linden
again yesterday' when a
young Christianburg Pri-
mary School teacher was
bludgeoned to death at her
home in the Teachers' Quar-
ters at 134 Hippani Oval,
Mackenzie, Linden.
The half naked body of
Melissa Anthony, 25, was
found around noon in a pool of
blood by her 16-year old
nephew Tristan Grant.
Residents nearby said they
heard no noise from the quarters
and shock spread through the
town after the discovery of the
gruesome killing.
A child in the area report-
edly said a man in a black jer-
sey was seen leaving the yard
not long before the body was
found.
The dead woman's hus-
band, Shane Anthony. was some
600 metres away. teaching stu-
dents at his usual lessons at Lot
833 B Redwood Crescent.
when he was detained by cops
following the discovery and
taken to the Mackenzie Police
Station for questioning.
The couple are Jehovah's
Witnesses and the wife was due
to leave home around noon for
normal Bible study sessions,
residents said.
Her nephew, Tristan, would
visit his aunt occasionally and
said when he arrived there yes-
terday he called for her as the
door was ajar and felt she was
sleeping.
The youngster said "I called
out hard. 'Inside!' When I go in
I see she lie down in a pool of
blood."
Grant must have arrived
close to 11:30h, as another
church member, Mrs. Hazel
Benn, said she spoke on the
telephone with Melissasjust af-
ter 11:00h.
Grant said he could not un-
derstand how the door was
wide open and as he went in-
side, he first saw her feet. "She
was in the library/ computer
room and the door was open."
According to him, the tele-
vision was on loudly and she
apparently was cooking as there
was a pot on the stove which
was alight.
Her body was only covered
with a white top and a towel
was around herhead, which was
bashed in from the back and
caused excessive bleeding.
Benn said she spoke to the
teacher just after 11:00h and felt
Anthony was not talking as she
would normally.
"She was unusually short
(in her answers). But I seh she


just wake up and- when I put
down the phone, I seh just be-
fore I left I gon call her back."
Benn said she confirmed
that they were going out. "Ev-
erything was 'Yeh!' I said 'Oh
like you just wake up'. She said
nothing; everything was
'Alright!'"
This manner of conversing
with Melissa came across as
strange and'Benn later asserted


that someone else was probably
at the house when she had
called.
Her aunt Loretta Ashby
fainted several times and had to
be revived on more than one oc-
casion as she could not bear to
see her niece bathed in blood.
Other members of the
Jehovah's Witnesses were in
obvious grief.
Police were yesterday also

lived in at the back of Third
Phase, Wisrock. also in Linden.
She said she had been
watching cricket on television
and the baby was sleeping.
when the man "came out from
somewhere hiding with a cut-
lass."
Nero said he began chop-
ping at her and as she attempted
to escape he followed, still
wielding the cutlass and her
baby was also chopped.
When the man fled, the
mother and child were
rushed to the hospital but by
then, the infant was already
dead.

There seemed to have been
a particular theme this year in

of some people.
Several boboolees we
passed were dressed as cricket-

-and all padded up.
A sign around the neck of
one boboolee read, "ICC killing

read, "WI team is ah boboolee,
everybody beating them."
I could relate to the first
sign, in particular, since frankly,
I have been soured and turned
off by the ICC World Cup

Like hundreds of thousands
of Caribbean people, I love
cricket with a passion. I follow
the WI team, lose, win or draw,

When thieves fall out


IT WILL take a while yet, but
the long and brutal reign of
Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe
is probably nearing its end.
Not because of the demo-
cratic opposition at home,
whose members are regularly
beaten up and sometimes killed
by the regime's police. Not even
because neighboring countries
in southern Africa are at last
putting pressure on Mugabe to
go.
Just because his own part-
ners-in-crime have decided that
it's him or them.
The key moment actually
came last December, when for
the first time the senior ranks of
the ruling Zanu-PF Party stood
up to Mugabe and refused to
accept his proposal to postpone
the next presidential election
from 2008 to 2010. It was typi-
cal Mugabe salami tactics -
give me two.more years, and
maybe I'll decide to resign in
2010 but this time it didn't
work.
In that case, said Mugabe,
I'll run for president again in
2008 (which would keep him in
the presidency for his 90th
birthday in 2014).
Given the speed with which
Zimbabwe's economy is col-
lapsing and its population flee-
ing abroad, seven more years of
Mugabe and it will not be worth
inheriting power there so
Mugabe's potential heirs within
Zanu-PF itself have begun to
rebel.
All that has followed the
vicious assaults of opposition
leaders by Mugabe's police in
mid-February, the South African
government's decision a week
ago to start talking to Mugabe's
Zanu-PF rivals and Zimba-
bwean opposition leaders, and
the emergency meeting of the
leaders of the 14-nation South-
ern African Development Com-
munity (SADC) in Tanzania on
March 28 is a response to


- Last act in Zimbabwe


Inflation in Zimbabwe, at
1,700 per cent, is the highest in
the world (the next highest,
Burma, is only 60 per cent), and
average income is less that a
tenth of South Africa's. Ten
years ago Zimbabwe was seen
as the bread-basket of Africa,
and it earned ample foreign ex-
change from exports of tobacco
and other cash crops; now it
cannot feed half its people, and
the tobacco crop is down by
four-fifths.
There are an estimated three
million Zimbabwean economic
refugees in South Africa (two-
thirds of the country's working-
age population), and they are
the main support of those left
at home, because unemploy-
ment in Zimbabwe is 80 per
cent or more. Zimbabwean life

this new perception that
Mugabe doesn't have long to
run.
"I have been to these SADC
summits and I know that behind
closed doors they are brutally
frank," Mugabe's former infor-
mation minister, Jonathan
Moyo, told "The Guardian" re-
cently. "They will remind
Mugabe that he told them he
would retire at the end of his
term in 2008....They will tell
Mugabe that his rule in Zimba-
bwe is dragging down the whole
southern African region."
None of that got into the
meeting's closing communique,
which ritually expressed solidar-
ity with Mugabe, but Moyo is
probably right, because Zimba-
bwe is becoming a blight on the
region.


THE closed Guyana National
Co-operative Bank (GNCB)
has sued nine former custom-
ers for a total of $63.1M they
allegedly borrowed previously.
The plaintiff is claiming
that the defendants failed to
honour their contracts by refus-
ing to pay the debts despite re-
peated demands.
The writs, filed in the Su-
preme Court Registry, said the
sums claimed represent the bal-
ances of cash advanced to the
defendants under overdraft
agreements, or as loans on
promissory notes.

expectancy is now the lowest in
the world: 37 for men, 34 for

Then there is the unbridled
brutality of the police force, the
official contempt for the law, the
propaganda that blames all the
failings of the regime on foreign
imperialists plotting against it
- it's not exactly the image that
southern Africans want for their
region.
On the whole, southern Af-
rica does not fit that image.
From South Africa to Tanzania,
most of the governments in the
SADC are democratically
elected and law-abiding. Most
economies are showing good
growth, and nobody is starving.
But' it is a well-known fact that
people in other continents have
difficulty in telling one African

country from another, and that
investors are the most ignorant
of all.
Zimbabwe's multiple fail-
ures take up more space in the
international media than all news
about all thirteen other members
of the SADC combined, and so
the neighbours' patience has run
out.
In fact, it ran out some time
ago, but being realists about the
nature of politics in Mugabe's
Zimbabwe, the other SADC
leaders saw no point in publicly
demanding change.
Now, however, there is
blood in the water. Mugabe man-
aged to bully Zanu-PF's central
committee into nominating him
for the presidency again two Fri-
days ago, but everybody knows
that two major factions in the
party want him to quit. That has
opened the door for others to de-
mand change as well.
The main contenders for
the succession are not without
sin.
Emmerson Mnangagwa was
state security minister when
25,000 members of the minor-
ity Ndebele tribe were murdered
by the regime in the 1980s for
supporting the Wrong political
party. Vice-President Joice
Mujuru is the wife of Solomon
Mujuru, a former army chief
who became very rich thanks to
his involvement in illegal land-
grabs during the seizure of all


the farms owned by white Zim-
babweans.
The ideal outcome would
be an alliance between Zanu-PF
dissidents and Zimbabwe's
democratic opposition in a tran-
sitional government leading to
free, internationally supervised
elections. The reality may be a
"good deal messier, because the,
Old Man doesn't know how to
let go. He has just imported
3,000 "security personnel"
from Angola to stiffen his own
police, who are deserting in
droves and going to work in
South Africa as security guards
because inflation has made their
wages in Zimbabwe almost
worthless.
But one way or another,
Mugabe's long misrule has
reached the beginning of the
end.

faithful .and consistent use of
services provided by the division.

Alluding to the various ser-

Khan said the company, which

expansion programmes, and has
set up new international linkages

ing.
Truly, I feel a great con job
has been done on the unsus-
pecting Caribbean people by the
strict rules imposed on us by
the ICC and our governments,
as the supporting cast.
Donald Marcano, perhaps
just another average guy in
Trinidad, was so upset by the
ICC rules that he took time out
to write a letter to the Sunday
Express talking about how the
ICC had misunderstood West
Indian cricket culture and why
they were paying for it at the
gates with poor crowd support.
Before going to a one day,
he said in his letter, families get
up early, cook a variety of food,
having organised the drinks in
coolers the night before and their
flags and musical instruments.
"We spend Trinidad and
Tobago dollars so we cannot af-
ford to buy food and beverage
in US currency. We blow horns,
beat drums and knock bottle and
spoon...," he wrote in reference
to the strict ICC rules about en-
tering the cricket ground with
food, drinks and musical instru-
ments.
"But you have to come to
the West Indies with your rules
and U.S. food prices and expect
to see full pavilions. I would like
you to know we are still sup-
porting our boys, we are just
not supporting the ICC. You
can find us at the rum shops
and bars, watching big screen
(TV), eating jerk pork, geera
pork, barbeque chicken and
pelau, blowing horns, beating
drums, knocking bottle and
spoon plus the added bonus of
instant replay," he wrote.
"So if you ever want to
'come by we' and hold a world
cup again, I think you would
have to be a little more lenient
with your rules in order to make
a profit and please we're too
poor to spend US dollars."
Well said, Donald.
I spoke to another cricket
fan, Harry Rampersad, who said
the ICC's high entrance fees
and strict rules have turned him
off from even looking at the
matches on television.
"Nothing resembles the
kind of cricket matches that are
played in the Caribbean. No
music, no dancing, no conch-
blowing, no characters in the
stands, people can't even talk
loud," said Rampersad, noting
that cricket for the vast major-
ity of Caribbean people was
not just about a sporting event.
"It's a major cultural and
even social event for us. We take
our families, with our big bas-
ket of food, share it around with
people we don't even know, get
drinks from them and become
instant best friends. It's a big
picnic with jokes and laughter all
around. Whatever the ICC and
the governments have put on
does not reflect Caribbean
cricket."
Even if the entrance fees
were too expensive for most of
us, watching the ICC matches
on television is like watching a
funeral pass by. Empty of any
excitement unless you think
the Australians romping around
with plastic kangaroos is funny
- the music, the laughter, the
loud talking, the friendly heck-
ling, the passing around of food,


dancing, the characters, the
conch-blowers, the families who
bring their aged parents and
young children, and the list goes
on.
Anil Roberts, ah real Trini
to the bone and I might add, a
passionate Caribbean man was
bodily thrown out of the spank-
ing new Antigua ground two
weeks ago by police and his
ICC press pass taken away
from him.
According to Roberts, all he


was doing was getting on loud
as usual, supporting and heck-
ling the cricketers on the ground
depending on how they were
playing.
That is typical of the aver-
age West Indian cricket fan in
the Caribbean.
But the ICC doesn't know
that.
We don't bum down houses
and stores and bomb buses and
mosques and churches and spit
on our cricketers.


We cuss when Lara get out
for a duck, we quarrel with
Chanderpaul to stop voopsing
(that surely is a West Indian
made up cricket word) and hit
the bloody ball and laugh when
the ninth or tenth man comes
confidently to rescue the WI
team by hitting a massive six.
That's our cricketing culture
and it should not have been such
a big mystery to Lara when he
said he could not understand
why the pavilions were empty
of the home crowd.
I've also had to convince
some journalists from the Afri-
can continent that whatever
they're seeing on their televi-
sions the empty chairs and the


dull atmosphere does not re-
flect the true West Indies at
cricket matches.
Outside of the ovals, hotels,
restaurants, taxi drivers and ar-
tisans are fuming too about the
poor sales they were getting out
of the much-hyped up ICC
World Cup cricket.
I saw a news feature on the
Guyanese artisans who seemed
to have been working day and
night, getting their arts and craft
ready for the big influx of tour-
ists into Georgetown. Sadly, I
read in one of the newspapers
in Guyana that sales were really
down as the crowds of tourists
that were expected just did not
happen.


Trinidad and Tobago with
its Brown Package may have
ended up a lot better than
Guyana and the islands that are
hosting the cricket.
Apart from the expenditure
on the Queen's Park Oval and
the UWI cricket ground, I think
it was business as usual for the
rest of the country, with no one
complaining about losses or the
lack of tourists to buy their
wares.
The expectations in
Trinidad were that low.
As for the rest of the ICC
world cup matches, I guess
my interest might only peak
if Ireland and Bangladesh
end up as the finalists!

'so


- Church, Pres. Bush and CARICOM


By Rickey Singh
THIS Easter weekend, which
coincides with the 200th an-
niversary of the abolition of
the Trans-Atlantic slave
trade, the Church's role in
slavery will, inevitably, resur-
face amid rising official sug-
gestions for 'apologies' and
'reparations'.
In Barbados, the Evangeli-
cal Association of the Carib-
bean (EAC), a relatively fledg-
ling Christian movement free
from the burden of African en-
slavement, finds no difficulties
in endorsing the decision
of CARICOM governments in
support of compensation for, as
it said, "the brutal enslavement
of Africans in the Caribbean
prior to 1834..."
The region's Anglican com-
munion, with historical ties to
the Church of England, which
was deeply involved in the
ownership of slaves on Carib-
bean sugar plantations, has been
making gestures of repentance
within recent years and pub-
licly apologising for its role in
slavery.
Repentance is good for the
soul. Saying sorry is not always
easy. Particularly for Christian
ministers obliged to preach and
practice the Biblical doctrine
that "we are all God's children"
- red or yellow, black or
white, as I recall an old Sunday
School chorus.
Now, as very influential
leaders of Christendom contem-
plate how best to help in en-
abling practical responses for
the Church's historical involve-
ment in slavery, the focus re-
mains on wealthy and power-
ful nations, such as the United
States of America and Britain.
Their leaders are under in-
creasing pressures to say
"sorry" and, hopefully, to come
forward with appropriate forms
of reparations to help in foster-
ing socio-economic develop-
ments in countries whose na-


tionals comprise the descen-
dants of African slaves.
For sure, there is no con-
sensus even in countries
still suffering from the evils of
slavery on what constitutes a
politically correct official apol-
ogy. For instance, should it be
made a record of parliament
and specifically addressed to
specific nations? Or, in the
case of reparations, determin-
ing the context in which it
should take place by mutual
consent of donor and recipient
nations?
Although the bicentenary of
official abolition of slavery has
been long in coming, there is yet
to emerge any cohesive ap-
proach by our own CARICOM
governments how to go about
achieving reparations for sla-
very.
Following Prime Minister
Tony Blair's recent gesture of an
apology without any known
formal request from
CARICOM, or the African
Union for his country's long
history in the Trans-Atlantic
slave trade, our community's
leaders are planning to seek an
apology from President George
W. Bush when they meet with
him during the Washington Con-
ference on the Caribbean sched-
uled for June 19-21.
It is to be hoped that in set-
ting themselves such a challeng-
ing task, CARICOM leaders do
not embarrass themselves for
failing to engage in relevant re-
search on this particular U.S.
President's position when it
comes to either apologising for,
or much less agreeing to any
kind of reparation for slavery.
It would be recalled that on
the eve of his official 2003 visit
to Africa, Bush had made it pel-
lucidly clear that he had no in-
tention of apologising for
America's historical role in the
slave trade during that journey.
Nor has the President
said anything since to
suggest a change of attitude.


Therefore, good luck to those
in CARICOM who feel they
could influence Blair's
White House soul-mate to
also say "sorry" for African
slavery.

ates the potential to consolidate
what we could refer to as "Get-
ting closer to our neighbours",
this being understood as the pro-
cess of becoming familiar with
the various regional markets and
exploring market opportunities
in the context of our natural bor-
der, built around the Caribbean
Sea and the countries that form
part of this space.
Nevertheless, the difficulties
encountered by entrepreneurs of
the region in this process of
"exploring opportunities" in
neighboring markets tacitly
represent a "natural obstacle" to
this process.
One of these obstacles is
the lack of substantial trade in-
formation and even more so, the
cultural and linguistic differ-
ences per se of the region. The
companies of the region that
have commenced their
internationalisation phase are
mostly SME's, which need to
stimulate their market research
processes and quickly adjust to
the demands of the environ-
ment.
It is precisely in this sce-
nario that the Trade Promotion
Organizations (TPO's) enter the
picture to play a fundamental
role in supporting companies,
generating trade intelligence in-
formation that would support
marketing decisions and provide
knowledge on markets and their
opportunities.
The Association of Carib-
bean States has achieved a
unique space within which the
Trade Promotion Organisations
of the Greater Caribbean can
share their best practices,
strengthen the communications
network and exchange informa-
tion on their markets, through
the Forum of Trade Promotion
Organizations of the Greater
Caribbean, which is held annu-
ally in a different country of the
region.
This year, the eighth instal-
ment of the forum was held in
Panama on March 6, where the
representatives of the trade pro-
motion organizations of various
countries in the region, includ-
ing El Salvador, Aruba,
Curacao, Panama, Mexico,
Costa Rica, Colombia, Trinidad
and Tobago and Puerto Rico,
just to name a few, were af-
forded the opportunity to ex-
change ideas on possible mecha-
nisms to establish a communi-
cations network among them
that would help create a trade
intelligence model for the ben-
efit of the entrepreneurs of the
region.
Initiatives such as this fo-
rum must be promoted at the
regional level in order to create
concrete mechanisms that would
consolidate the flow of trade in-
formation and encourage the
strengthening of inter-institu-
tional co-operation ties.
Intra-regional business and
trade will increase in so far as
we promote and implement
greater communication and dia-
logue among the very institu-
tions that promote them.

tariat of the Association of

Brilliant Bangladesh ...


(From back page)
Razzak three for 25 and
Shabik Hasan two for 49 to-
gether with pacer Syed Rasel
two for 41, were the men
mainly responsible for their
opponents' destruction, much
to the delight of a crowd in
the vicinity of 9 500.
Herschelle Gibbs, batting at
number seven, due to a left calf
strain he suffered whilst field-
ing that forced him off the field
for the better part of
Bangladesh's innings, stroked an
unbeaten (56), spiced with one
four and two sixes from 59 de-
liveries and Jacques Kallis, 32,
were the only South African
batsman offering any significant
resistance.
Kallis shared a second-
wicket partnership of 45 with
AB de Villiers (15) after Rasel
rocked back the stumps of
Graeme Smith for 12 when the
score was on 18.
But once Rasel accounted
for Kallis to a catch at mid-off,
trying to clear the infield, five
wickets tumbled for 24 in quick
succession in a matter of 11 overs
including that also of de
Villiers, who was comprehen-
sively bowled by Razzak.
Justin Kemp (7) was caught
and bowled by Hasan, Ashwell
Prince (1) was run-out and
Mark Boucher (12), was caught
at deep mid-off.
Gibbs and Shaun Pollock
(17) attempted to revive the al-

ready horrifying situation in
raising 45 for the 7th wicket
that carried the score to 132 in
the 36th over until Pollock,
seeking a sharp single, became
South Africa's second run-out
casualty, unable to beat Tamim
lqbal's direct hit to the none-
striker's end,.
Gibbs tried desperately to
at least salvage some pride for
his country but Mohammad
Rafique (1-22) and Razzak
quickly ripped through the tail.
Man-of-the-match
Ashraful, dismissed off the
first ball of the last over in
Bangladesh's innings, caught
by Charl Langeveldt at long-
leg off Andrew Nel, who fin-
ished with excellent figures
of five for 45, shared in an
important fifth-wicket stand
of 76 in 14 overs with Aftab
Ahmed who hit two fours and
an equal amount of sixes in
a 43-ball 35 while he also
posted a quick-fire 57 for the
seventh wicket, in a mere six
overs with Mortaza (25).
Invited to take first strike,
in sultry conditions and on a
good batting track, Bangladesh
were given an auspicious start
of 42 in 14 overs between open-
ers Javed Omar (17) and Iqbal
but three quick wickets by
pacer Andre Nel. on his return
to the team in place of the
rested Andrew Hall, within six
overs saw them slipping to 69
for three.
Omar slashed a wide deliv-
ery straight into the hands of
Smith at backward point;
Habibul Bashar (5) punched a
return catch that was brilliantly
taken one-handedly. while Iqbal,
after batting intelligently in get-
ting up to 38, needlessly charg-
ing down the track and pelting
a swipe, gloved a catch to Mark
Boucher behind the stumps.
Iqbal struck six fours, in-
cluding a scintillating cover
drive to get off the mark in a
knock that lasted 59 balls and
when Hassan (9) smashed
Kallis for Smith to take his
second catch at backward
point, this time head high,
the Bangladeshis were fur-

their on the ropes.
Ashraful and Ahmed joined
forced in the 24th over with the
total on 84 for four and set
about their rebuilding act cir-
cumspectly against some tidy
South African bowling before
blossoming out admirably.
Ahmed hoisted Kemp high
over backward square and then
again over mid-wicket for two
sixes in the medium pacer's only
over, the 36th of the innings
that cost 13 runs before
Makhaya Ntini, returning for a
second spell, made the break-
through when Ahmed lofted a
low catch to Nel, running in
from deep extra-cover.
At that stage it was 160 for
five in the 38th over and with
Mushfiqur Rahim responding
late to what should have been a
comfortable single, being run-
out (6) in the 42nd over,
Bangladesh were 176 for six.
Deciding that it was time to
step on the accelerator, the right-
handed Ashraful, playing in his
76th ODI, spanked Ntini back
over his head for his sixth four
to bring up his 11lth 50 in one-
day-internationals from 64 balls
in the 44th over and celebrated
the milestone, peppering the
bowler with a shuffle-sweep to
long-leg and then a classy
square-cut for two more fours
in an over that produced 15
runs.
Mortaza. who had his stumps
scattered by Nel with the final de-
livery of the 48th over, was not to
be left out, clobbering Ntini whose
last two overs yielded 28 runs.
straight back for six and followed
up with an audacious clip off the
legs to mid-wicket for four as
Bangladesh whistled away a flurry
of boundaries in the last ten overs
that generated 80. runs. 55 of which
came in the final six.
South Africa remain on four
points from three matches in
this the second phase of the
World Cup and will play the
West Indies in their next match
on Tuesday in Grenada while
Bangladesh, now off the mark
with two points also from three
matches, take on England on
Wednesday in Barbados.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE April 8, 2007

Two records
tumble in
opening session
of 36th Carifta
Games
PROVIDENCIALES, Turks
& Caicos (CMC) History
was created twice on the open-
ing day of the 36th CARIFTA
Games as two records
tumbled in the morning ses-
sion at the National Stadium
here.
Bahamas took the early
glory in the Boys' Under-17
High Jump as Raymond Higgs
set a new CARIFTA record of
2.13 metres in the event as he
shattered the old mark of 2.10
metres set by Ryan Chambers
of Jamaica in 1992.
Jamaican Jovan Hardware
was second with a leap of 1.95
metres while fellow countryman
Machell Baker tied for silver
with 1.95 metres.
Higgs credited his coach
and family for his success af-
ter months of training and
said he always dreamed of
winning gold. He admitted a
new record was a shock for
him.
"I just was jumping to win
gold but when the record pre-
sented itself I knew I had it," he
said.
Barbados also ended the first
session with a gold medal in their
camp as Deandra Dottin calmly
threw the shot put a distance of
12.26 metres to eclipse her closest
rival Candicea Bernard of Jamaica
who threw 10.66 metres.
In the men's event, Jamaica
earned their first gold of the day
when Raymond Bi R ,T threw
49:.i ietres to win gold in the
Under-20 event.
Jamaica sprint sensation
Yohan Blake claimed the other
record to fall, albeit not in a fi-
nal. He set a.new time of 10.18
seconds in the Boys' Under-20,
100 metres event as he warmed
up for the final later in the
evening.
Heavy rain during the
lunch break caused a delayed
start to the evening session.

Former India captains

recommend tightening

player deals

Bi Sanjay Rajan

MUMBAI, India (Reuters) India's under-performing
World Cup cricl.eters came under fire from former cap-
tains who have recommended that players should obtain
permission from the board
before entering into en-
dorsemneni contracts.

LONDON, England (Reuters)
- A quartet of thirty-some-
things, led by Jonas
Bjorkman at 35, took former
champions Sweden and Ger-
many into the semi-finals of
the Davis Cup tennis yester-
day.
Bjorkman and 2002 Austra-
lian Open champion Thomas
Johansson, 32, gave Sweden a 3-
0 winning lead over last year's
runners-up Argentina with a 4-
6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory over
David Nalbandian and
Guillermo Canas in the doubles
in Gothenburg.
Sweden, seven-time cham-
pions, had not reached the final
four of the world group since
2001.
Germany took a 3-0 unas-
sailable lead over Belgium after
Michael Kohlmann, 34, and
Alexander Waske, 32, defeated
brothers Olivier and Christophe
Rochus 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-1.
The Germans have been
champions on three occa-
sions but the last time they
were gEmi-finalists was in
1995, when Boris Beck.Y was_
their top player and Philipp
Kohlschreiber, Who made a


victorious cup debut in
Friday's singles, was 11 years
old.
.On a busy day for the stat-
isticians, Russia recorded their
first Davis Cup doubles win
over France to take a 2-1 lead
in the Moscow quarter-final.
Nikolay Davydenko, stand-
ing in for Marat Safin who had
a foot injury, and Igor.Andreev
beat Sebastien Grosjean and
Michael Llodra.3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 3-
6, 6-3 to become the first Rus-
sian or Soviet doubles pair to
beat France in seven meetings,
going back to 1973.

FASTEST WINNERS
Germany were the fastest
team into September's semi-fi-
"nals, continuing a long tradition
of thrashing Belgium.
Two more wins in today's
reverse singles would give the
Germans their fifth successive
whitewash over their smaller
neighbours and a last-four tie
against either Russia or France.
Davydenko, who had never
played Davis Cup doubles be-
fore, and Andreev, made an un-
conventional pair for Russia,
admitting that they acted like
two sing.i i~nyers rather than
a unit.


Windwards move clear in


Windies U-15s after third round


PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad
(CMC) The Windward Is-
lands became tournament
leaders in the CLICO West
Indies Under-15 cricket tour-
nament when they impres-
sively beat the Leeward Is-
lands in the third round on
Friday.
They whipped the Leeward
Islands to stretch their winning
streak to three games and are
now sole leaders with maximum
six points after previously un-
beaten Barbados slipped to a
tense loss to reigning champions
Jamaica.
Led by another fine per-
formance from all-rounder
Kyle James at the Aranguez
Savannah, the Windwards
handed the Leewards their
third straight defeat in a 40-
run victory.
Batting first, the Wind-
wards on the back of an
unbeaten half-century from
Dennis Smith chalked up
a competitive score of 181
from 37.1 overs.

Tsunami-hit Galle

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (Reuters) Galle International
Stadium, which was destroyed in the Asian tsunami in
2004, will be officially reopened when England visit Sri
Lanka in December for a three-Test tour.
"Galle will be ready in time to stage the first Test against

Reuters.
The firsl Test will be played from LDCC.. .her 1-5.

Andreev said the French
were better versed in the art
of doubles. "So what we had
to do was not to get dragged
into this doubles' play and do
what we do well, to play at the


back," he told reporters.
The tactic worked and the
Russians dominated in the de-
ciding fifth set.


Argentina had beaten Swe-
den 5-0 in the first round last
year but never looked comfort-
able on the fast indoor carpet
surface at Gothenburg's Con-
vention Centre.
Captain Alberto Mancini
decided to play Canas, who had
been rested on Friday because of
tiredness and a slight leg injury,
instead of Sebastian Prieto.
Johansson's powerful serve
and Bjorkman's deft drop shots
and volleys at the net were too
much for the Argentine pair,
however, and the Swedes won
through to a meeting with either
the United States or Spain in the
semi-finals.
The Americans led 2-0 af-
ter the opening day's singles,
with wins for James Blake
and Andy Roddick. Twins Bob
and Mike Bryan were to face
Feliciano Lopez and
Fernando Verdasco later yes-
terday in Winston-Salem,
North Carolina.

KARACHI, Pakistan ("eu } Pakistan's media manager at
the World Cup told an inquiry committee G Friday that there
had been more focus on religion than cricket in the team.
The performance evaluation committee including three former
Test players and administrators has been constituted by the Paki-
stan Cricket Board to look into their first-round exit from the World
Cup.
"I told the committee that the players were not focused on
cricket in the World Cup. They were more into religion,"
Pervez Mir, a former Pakistan player, told Reuters.
Mir said he was disturbed to see focus on cricket missing in
the team in such an important tournament.
"I told. the committee that Pakistani players, rather than pray
privately, tried to make it a public spectacle," he said.

RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES
Mir said he had told the committee of incidents to highlight his
point and added that some players, led by captain Inzamam-ul-
Haq, even made it a point to pray in the galley of aircraft on flights
rather than privately in their seats.
Inzamam, who stepped down as captain and retired from
one-day internationals after the World Cup, had been
criticised for using the team platform for religious activities.
Pakistan's late coach Bob Woolmer had also complained to the
board he found it frustrating to see the players taking part in reli-
gious activities after matches when he wanted to discuss cricket
with them.
A member of the committee, which has to give its report in 30
days, said Mir's statement was disturbing.
Saleem tlf. a senior board official too, said the commit-
tee would also be calling for::- chairmen of the board Tauqir
Zia and Shaharyar Khan next week.

United defeat leaves




Chelsea in hot pursuit


By Martyn Herman

LONDON, England (Reuters)
Portsmouth blasted the Pre-
mier League title race wide
open yesterday with a 2-1 vic-
tory over leaders Manchester
United at Fratton Park.
Matthew Taylor's-first half
strike and a late own goal byRio
Ferdinand ended a run of seven
successive league victories for
United who managed a late con-
solation through John O'Shea.
Champions Chelsea, who
edged a 1-0 victory over
Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford
Bridge earlier, are now just three
points behind with six games to
go.
Portugal defender Ricardo
Carvalho scored Chelsea's win-
ner in the second half against
Tottenham, leaving Jose
Mourinho's side in hot pursuit
with 75 points to United's 78.
It is the first time since De-
cember that United's lead has
slipped below six points and a
potential title showdown is
beckoning when the sides clash
at Stamford Bridge on May 9.
""It's come at a bad time but
I expect us to recover," United
boss Alex Ferguson told Sky
Sports. "Playing with 10 men in
Roma on Wednesday told on us
today."
Elsewhere,. Liverpool
strengthened their hold on third
place with a 2-1 victory at Read-
ing, while Arsenal fell to their
first ever defeat at the Emirates
Stadium, going down 1-0 to rel-
egation fighters West Ham
United.
United's title hopes in
2003-2004 were dashed by an
April defeat at Fratton Park and
while this defeat may not prove
fatal it will give Chelsea re-
newed hope of a third straight
title.

INSPIRED JAMES
The match proved a tale of


two goalkeepers. United's
Dutch stopper Edwin van der
Saar was culpable over both
Portsmouth's goals but David
James was inspired at the other
end.
van der Saar could only
parry Benjani's fierce shot after
30 minutes and Taylor beat
Ferdinand to stab in the re-
bound.
United launched a wave of
attacks but could find no way
past James who made superb
saves from Cristiano Ronaldo,
Paul Scholes and substitute Alan
Smith.
There was a comical ele-
hient to Portsmouth's second
goal in the 89th minute.
Ferdinand intercepted a
Portsmouth move but his
pass.back to van Der Saar
rolled agonisingly past the
on-rushing Dutchman into
the net.
O'Shea's reply set up a
frantic finale but Pompey, now
in eighth, hung on to revive their
own hopes of qualifying for the
UEFA Cup.
Chelsea's eighth consecu-
tive league % victory without con-
ceding a goal was in the balance
until the fin:a whistle against a
Tottenham side who had been in
UEFA Cup quarter-final action
against Sevilla just 36 hours be-
fore.
Carvalho's strike gave them
a barely-deserved lead and they
looked jaded after their Cham-
pions League exertions against
Valencia on Wednesday.

SHARP SAVES
Salomon Kalou missed a
sitter while Tottenham came
close when Egypt striker Mido.
substitute Dimitar Berbatov and
French teenager Adel Taarabt all

Cech.

Sports. "I couldn't be happier
that he scored. United are lucky
they are not playing us next
week."
The relegation dogfight
took another twist with West
Ham's Bobby Zamora stunning
Arsenal on the stroke of halftime
to earn his side an unlikely 1-0
victory.
West Ham are now two
points behind third bottom
Sheffield United, beaten 2-1 by

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil
(Reuters) Angry
Corinthians fans carrying
brooms and boxes of soap
powder ran on to the pitch
during training on Friday
and forced the session to be
called off.
One supporter threw soap
powder at the startled players,
who were quickly led off the
field at the Parque Sao Jotgi, in
Sao Paulo, the clhib
headquarters.
The incidcni, intended as a
symbolic clean-up by Ians of
one of Brazil's biggest and mios
volatile clubs, happened three
days after coach Emerson Leau


was fired and replaced by Ze
Augusto on an interim basis.
"I can say that I'm
frightened," Ze Augusto told
reporters. "The pressure really
is very great. You need a strong
personality to work here,"
added the coach, who has been
at the club for six years training
the youth teams.
"I don't know how the
players will react after the
protest ... but I think they're
used to it, they know about
the responsibility of playing
for Corinthians."
The players refused to
coMinmenl.
Media reports said Ithe.

forced their way past security

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad
(CMC)- Title-holders Ja-
maica stayed alive in the
West Indies Under-15 tourna-
ment when they defeated
Guyana by seven wickets in
a one-sided affair yesterday
at the Barataria Oval.
Guyana, without a win in
the tournament, batted first and
were routed for a measly 83 off
34 overs.
Shameer Fazal top-scored
with 20 runs, while left-arm
spinner Coy Thompson (4-13)
and medium-pater Nikolson
Gordon (4-19) shared the bowl-
ing honours for the Jamaicans.
In response, Jamaica led by
a fluent 48-from John Campbell,
cruised to victory in 16.4 overs,
losing three wickets on the way
to their target.
The Jamaican have six
points from four matches, while
Guyana remain without a point
after four rounds of matches.
Thompson and Gordon
shared the man-of-the-match
awards.
At Syne Village in Penal,
Barbados, led by a brilliant
century from opening bats-
man Kraigg Braithwaite re-
corded a huge 203-run win
against early leaders Wind-
ward Islands.
Brathwaite scored 129 from
132 balls which included 10
fours as Barbados tallied a mam-
moth 324 for four off 50 overs'.
Brathwaite figured in two
important partnerships which
laid the foundation for his
team's sizeable total.
He shared in an opening
partnership of 130 with Kyle
Mayers who contributed 73 off
72 balls with nine fours and
three sixes, and 132 for the third


wicket with Dario Cummings
who made 81 from 72 balls
with 11 fours and three sixes.
Faced with the Herculean
task of scoring a little over seven
runs per over for an unlikely
victory, the Windwards flat-
tered to deceive and were
bowled out for 121 in 33.3
overs.
The leading bowler for the
Barbadian youngsters was im-
pressive pacer Marquez Clarke
with five for 24. For his tremen-
dous innings, Brathwaite was
named man-of-the-match.
Hosts T&T also stayed in
the hunt for championship
honours with a comfortable 83-
run win against the Leeward Is-
lands at the Diamon) Recreation
Ground in San Fernando.
Led by Nicholas Alexis' 83
off 118 balls with nine fours
and 55 off 92 deliveries by
Yannic Ottley, T&T posted a
challenging 251 for four in 50
overs.
In reply, the Leewards were
restricted to 168 for nine from
the allotted 50 fours.
Alexis was named man-of-
the-match.
The. final round of the

Appleby leads way is


Woods stumbles la; e


By Steve Keating

AUGUSTA, Georgia (Reuters)
- Stuart Appleby was bidding
to become the first Australian
to wear the coveted green'
jacket while Tiger Woods may
have let a fifth Masters golf
title slip after a poor finish to
his third round yesterday.
Playing in tough scoring con-
ditions at Augusta National,
Woods mounted one of his trade-
mark charges only to squander a
determined effort with crushing
back-to-back bogeys on 17 and
18.
His late stumble gave the
world number one an even-par
72 for a three-over total of 219,
four behind Appleby who'had
three holes to go.
Sharing second place on two
over par were Briton Justin
Rose, through 14, and Americans
Vaughn Taylor (13) and Jerry
Kelly (12).
"This is one of the hardest
round, e ha\ c played out here,
if you make 18 pars you are go-
ing to move up that
leaderboard." Woods ioid report-
ers.
Appleby, who has three


top-10 finishes at a m'ior and
never been placed higher than
19th in 10 previous visits to Au'
gusta, produced a sizzling front
nine that included three consecu-
tive birdies from the second.
Near-freezing temperatures
and gusting winds as high as 25-
mph combined for another mis-
erable day.
Woods began five shots off
the pace but was quickly on the
move as he carded two birdies on

The four-time Masters
champion bogeyed the 12th but
hit back with a birdie on 13 be-
fore finishing bogey-bogeyv for

-Dravid retained





as captain for




next three tours


By Sanjay Rajan

MUMBAI, India (Reuters) -
Rahul Dravid has been re-
tained as India captain for
the team's next three tours,
the country's cricket board
said yesterday.
Dravid, whose leadership
was under fire following India's
first-round exit in the World
Cup, will be skipper for next
month's tour of Bangladesh as
well as the trips to Ireland and,
England later in the year.
"The working committee
has directed the selection
committee to send a young
team to Bangladesh under an
experienced captain," board
treasurer N. Srinivasan told
journalists.
"The selection committee
after discussions has ap-
pointed Rahul Dravid as cap-
tain," he added. .
Bangladesh beat the 1983
winners in the first round of
the World Cup on March 17
leading to their shock elimi-


nation.
This has been one of the rare
occasions in Indian cricket when
the working committee has
given a brief to the selection
committee as to the kind of cap-
tain and team to select.
"We have not suggested any
names, we have only given di-
rection," Srinivasan said.

'MOTIVATED TEAM'
Regarding the hurry in nam-
ing the captain, he said: "The
defeat to Bangladesh (in the
World Cup) had led to a lot of
speculation in the media. We
want a motivated team, moti-
vated players.
"The board felt that we
should send out a signal that
there is no panic anywhere. The
selectors chose Dravid."
Former India all-rounder
Ravi Shastri was named as
cricket manager for the
Bangladesh tour earlier yes-
terday.
"Shastri has been named for
this tour alone. We will decide


on the next coach later,"
Srinivasan said referring to Aus-
tralian Greg Chappell's succes-.


RAHUL DRAVID


sor. Chappell quit as India coach
on Wednesday.
Ex-Test paceman
Venkatesh Prasad will be
bowling coach and former all-
rounder Robin Singh fielding
coach for the Bangladesh
tour.


The board has also decided
to put a ceiling on players' en-
dorsements.
"A player will endorse not
more than three sponsors/prod-
ucts and no sponsor can con-
tract more than two players,"
Srinivasan said.
"The players shall take
prior approval of the board
before signing any endorse-
ment contract and will submit
a copy of the agreement to
the board."
Some media commentators
within India suggested that the
players had been too concen-
trated on their commercial con-
tracts.
Leading batsman Sachin
Tendulkar has been asked for an
explanation for his comments
against Greg Chappell to the
media.
Tendulkar suggested
Chappell had questioned the
attitude of senior players at
the World Cup, which culmi-
nates with the Barbados final
on April 28.


Shastri accepts India coach


role for Bangladesh


FORMER Test all-rounder
Ravi Shastri has agreed to
become Indial' coach-for the -
forthcoming tour to
Bangladesh.
The 44-year-old will take
over on an interim basis from
Australian Greg Chappell, who
resigned following India's World
Cup elimination.
Shastri, who now works as
a TV commentator, admitted the
offer had come as a surprise.
But he added: "If you look
at the state of Indian cricket, I
thought it was time to put my
hand up and be counted."
Shastri scored 3 830 runs
and claimed 151 wickets in 80
Test matches after making his
debut at the age of 19, and also
played in- 150 one-day
internationals.
He is also well known for
hitting spinner Tilak Raj for
six sixes in an over in a first-
class match in 1985 and
thereby becoming only the
second man after West Indies
legend Garry Sobers to
achieve the feat.

Aussies prepare plans

to combat Pietersen

By John Mehaffey

ST JOHN'S, Antigua (Reuters) Australia have prepared
plans to combat England's best batsman Kevin Pietersen
if he decides to advance down the wicket to their pace
bowlers In today's World Cup Super Eight match.
"He's their most dangerous batsman," Australia caprtan
Ricky Ponting told a news conference yesterday.
"'He's the one that we would like to get out cheaply if we
could. He's been their best player and the most consistent for
a couple of years now in one-day cricket so we would like to
keep him as quiet as we can tomorrow."
Pointing said the Australia bowlers had discussed ways
to counter Pietersen if he started to move out of his crease.
"'All our bovilers hate spoken a little bit about what they
are going to do if they happen to see him or any other players
coming dovw n the wickeL," he said.
"Ian Bell's done it as well, he's come out of his crease
particularly when (Nathan) Bracken's been bowling early
on. We've changed a few things to combat that."
Pietersen is viewed by both sides as the key England player
in a game his side must win if they are to have any realistic
chance of advancing further in the tournament.
They have only two points while Australia top the stand-
ings with a maximum six plus a healthy run rate.

DISTANT MEMORY
England's 2-0 win in the tri-series this year already seem
a distant memory and Ponting said it had not even been dio-
cussed at Friday's team meeting.
"I don't think you think about revenge, you just talk about
a new.game of cricket," he said.
"England deserved to win the games they won back i
Australia at the end of the sumpier. We, weren't anywlMn
near our best and they played some good one-day crickt.
. As far as I'm concerned that's forgotten about."
Australia will delay naming a replacement for injured all-
rounder Shane Watson until this morning with batsman Brad
Hodge likely to come mio the team. England may recall An-
drew Strauss in place of EdJoyce.
"I have an idea of which way we are going to go." captain
Michael Vaughan told reporters.
"Sometimes a break from the game can be quite good men-
tally. If he (Strauss) plays today I won't have any worries about
him making a score"
Vaughan and 2005 Ashes hero Andrew Flintoff also need a
big score today if England are to be even competitive against
the defending champions.
"Australia are the form team of the World Cup.
They've dominated every game," Vanghan said.
"They have played very strong cricket and powered their
way to big totals. We take confidence knowing we can beat them
but these conditions are completely different."
Teams (probable):
Australia Adam Gilchrist, Matthew Ha.den, Ricky
Pointing (captain). Michael Clarke, Andrew Symonds, Brad
Hodge, Michael Hussey. Brad Hogg, Nathan Bracken. Shaun.
Tail, Glenn McGrath.
England Ed Joyce or Andrew Strauss. Michael
Vaughan captainp), Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen. Paul
Collingwood, Andrew Flintoff, Ravi Bopara. Paul Nixon.
Sajid Mahmood, Liam Plunkett, Monty Panesar.

ST JOHN'S, Antigua (Reuters) Australia hope their in-
jured all-rounder Shane Watson will be back in the World
Cup side for the Super Eight match against Sri Lanka in
nine days' time, captain Ricky Ponting said yesterday.
Watson left the field against Bangladesh last Saturday with
a calf strain, the latest setback in a long history of injury prob-
lems. He missed the 2003 World Cup with a stress fracture in
his back and all of the last Ashes series with -a serious ham-
string complaint.
"'The earlier we can have him back the better," Ponting
told a news conference on the eve of his team's matIch
against England.
"If we can have him back for the Sri Lanka game. it would
be great. We'll just keep our fingers crossed and hope he keeps
coming on."
Pointing said Watson had been undergoing rehabilitation
work and physiotherapy over the past week with a view to
playing against New Zealand on April 20;
"I think originally everyone was sort of hoping that
he would be right for the last game before the semni-nals"
Pointing said.
"That was the game we have him pencilled him in for. I.
comes back before that it will obviously be a huge bonus 5';
us.

Their final opponents will be fellow Mexicans Guadalajara,
who eliminated D.C. United, another Major League Soccer

Pachuca needed only 15 minutes to wipe out the first-

penalty.
Brian Mullen pulled one back eight minutes after the break
but Pachuca restored their two-goal advantage with a hugely
controversial penalty six minutes later.
Gimenez went tumbling over after the slightest of touches

The drama continued as Brian Chming headed Houston's sec-

Gimenez settled matters in the 105th minute with a

SEPANG, Malaysia (Reuters)
- Ferrari's Felipe Massa
snatched pole position for the
Malaysian Grand Prix with a
scorching last lap in
yesterday's qualifying.
The Brazilian, with a time
of one minute 35.043 seconds,
was almost three-tenths of a
second quicker than double
world champion Fernando
Alonso's McLaren.
Massa's Ferrari team mate
Kimi Raikkonen, who won the
season-opening-race from pole
position in Australia, will start
in third place on the grid at the
Sepang circuit today alongside
McLaren's British rookie Lewis
Hamilton.
"Obviously I want to fin-
ish the race in the same po-
sition in which I start it,"
said a satisfied Massa after
claiming -his fourth career
pole position.
"I think at the end of the
day the McLarens were really
competitive and it makes us
work even harder to have a good
race today."
The Brazilian, who had
to settle for sixth place in
Australia after an engine
change forced him to start at
the back of the grid, said the
steamy conditions made han-
dling a challenge.


"We know we are up against
some very strong opponents and
that this is always a hard race,
both from the physical point of
view," he said.
"In these very high tem-
peratures it is like racing in a
sauna and the track became very
slippery, but I was able to put
together my best lap right at the
last minute."

FERRARI STRONGEST
In a scintillating final lap of
qualifying under dark and threat-
ening.skies, Raikkonen and
Alonso briefly held pole before
Massa seized it.
Spaniard Alonso said he was
delighted to claim a place on the
front row in his McLaren for the
second consecutive race, espe-
cially as Ferrari looked to have
the edge on straight-line speed.
"I think we have to be real-
istic and say our pace is not as
good as Ferrari," he said.
"(But) we have improved
our car from last week and ... we
have a much more competitive
package than in Melbourne."
Alonso felt conditions
would play a part in determin-
ing the outcome of today's race.
"It's going to be a very, very
tough race not only for driv-
ers but for cars and for tyres
too," he added.
Germany's Nick Heidfeld
qualified fifth for BMW Sauber,


with compatriot Nico Rosberg
alongside in a Williams.
Poland's Robert Kubica
will start on the fourth row
for BMW Sauber with Ital-
ian Jarno Trulli next to him
in a Toyota.
Champions Renault, who


have won for the past two
years at Sepang with Alonso in
2005 and Italian Giancarlo
Fisichella last season, failed to
qualify in the top 10.
Finnish rookie Heikki
Kovalainen will start 11th with
team mate Fisichella 12th.
"Just like in Melbourne we
are a long way from the lead-
ers and we know that we need
to improve," said a disap-
pointed Fisichella. "We need to
make the right calls on strategy
and see how things unfold."

'To be like Australia,



you can't work like


Zimbabwe'


GREG Chappell, the former
India coach, has said that In-
dia needs to plan long-term
to progress to the next level.
Chappell resigned as coach
after India's first-round
elimination from the 2007
World Cup.
"The Indians must adopt a
10-year plan, spelling out the
aims and objectives and go
about attaining those goals in a
professional manner," Chappell
told The Times of India. "Any
half measures or cosmetic
changes at this stage would be
like putting Band-Aid on cancer.
If you want to be like Austra-
lia, you can't run your cricket
like Zimbabwe."
When asked whether In-
dia would have fared better if
.he had the players of his
choice for the World Cup,
Chappell said that India
should have at least made the
semi-finals with the players
they took to the Caribbean.
"I think we should have
done much better in the West
Indies with the squad we had.


We batted poorly against
Bangladesh, but we should have
still squeezed out a win. History
says India's record in defending
low totals has been quite poor.
We could have done with a few
young legs, but I believe that we
still had the ammunition to at
least reach the semis."
Chappell said he had en-
joyed coaching India despite a
controversial two-year term in
which he reportedly annoyed
senior players by his insis-
tence on blooding young
cricketers.
"As a coach, it was easily
one of the most challenging as-
signments one could ever hope
to have," said Chappell. "I have
loved every moment of it, plan-
ning, strategising, analyzing ...
before every tour or series.
"I don't want to get into
(the) senior-junior issue again.
Look, as a player, you have to
keep challenging yourself. When
that stops, it's time to do a quick
reality check and take a few hard
decisions. I came here to do a job
that I have done to the best of


South Africa in December.
"He (Ganguly) has
practised most of what I
had preached during the
"me he was out of the side.
Sourav has shown plenty
of determination in win-
ning his place back. I hope
he c" inues to work hard
A- ais fitness and score
ivily for the team."
Chappell defended the
wove to bat Sachin Tendulkar
at No.4 despite most of his
one-day success coming
while opening the innings.
"Opening is an easier option
in one-day cricket. I felt that
the team would benefit im-
mensely if Sachin came in at
number four, for he has the
experience, technique and the
talent to milk the bowling in
the middle overs."
On the whole, in spite of
all the controversy, Chappell
said that he had no- regrets
about his term as coach and
that he "wouldn't have
missed it for anything.

Sir Garry, Sir Everton



back under-fire Lara


By Keith Holder

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados
(CMC) Two former West
Indies greats, the Right Ex-
cellent Sir Garfield Sobers
and Sir Everton Weekes have
thrown their support behind
embattled captain Brian Lara
in the face of stinging criti-
cism from other former stars
over his leadership style.
Sir Garry, 70, the world's
greatest ever all-rounder and a
former West Indies captain, said
Lara "is still the most knowl-
edgeable person in West Indies
cricket", while the 82-year-old
Weekes asserted that while Lara
"might not be the best captain,
he hasn't got a good team".
Both were speaking in an
exclusive, joint interview with
the Sagicor West Indies Cricket
Quarterly shortly after a Com-
memorative Coin Launch in
their honour at the Grand Salle
of the Tom Adams Financial
Centre here on Thursday night.
Former West Indies fast
bowling trio of Michael Hold-
ing, Joel Garner and Colin
Croft have all called for the'


sacking of Lara who was ap-
pointed captain for an un-
precedented third time last
year but whose team are in
danger of not advancing to
the semi-finals of the World
Cup after losing their first
three Super Eight matches.
West Indies must win their
other three matches against South
Affica at the Queen's Park National
Stadium in St. George's (April 10),
Bangladesh (April 19) and England
(April 21) both at Kensington
Oval in Barbados to remain in
contention for a place in the semi-
finals.
But Barbadians Sobers and
Weekes felt critics were becom-
. ing too emotional about the
plight of the West Indies team
at the moment without assess-
ing its strength and fitness.
Sir Garry pointed out
that in the last two-and-a-half
years, West Indies "have had
a tremendous amount of prob-
lems and Lara was "always
criticised", while Weekes said
it was noticeable that some
players are "very unfit".
"There have always been
criticisms about Lara. I don't


BRIAN LARA
know what people expect of
him. I don't know if the people
expect him to hold their (the
players) hands and to take them
away and make them perform,"
Sir Garry said.
"Lara, in my estimation, is
still the most knowledgeable
person in West Indies cricket.
And Lara knows his cricket. He
may look like a supremo as
people may try to say but
whenever you look around West
Indies and West Indies cricket,
if you could find a man that you
think is better than Lara, fair


enough.
"But I don't think there is
a person who has that same
knowledge and that same
ability as Brian Lara."
Batting maestro Weekes said:
"All of the great captains had great
teams. Lara has not got a great team
and I wouldn't go as far as saying
that he should be fired. Lara is still
the best batsman in the side. He
might not be the best captain and
he is not the best captain because
he hasn't got a good team.
"When you go back to all of
the winning captains, you'll see
that they've had very good
players and great players. Un-
fortunately for Lara, he hasn't
got any of those in his side.
"The bowling is very av-
erage, he has got a couple of
good batsmen with him and
that's it. But I think people
can be a bit unfair sometimes
in comparing players and
teams and that sort of thing
but I wouldn't be that drastic
to have them all removed. I
think in the heat of things
people.say things that some-
times they are very sorry
about."


Diplomat Richards retains his old passion


By John Mehaffey

ST JOHN'S, Antigua
(Reuters) Diplomacy, which
never came easily to Viv
Richards in his-playing days,
is now the day job for
Antigua's favourite son.
At 55, still every inch the
athlete with the fierce stare
which intimidated bowlers
throughout the world, the man
named as one of the Wisden
almanac's five greatest players
of the 20th century is an am-
bassador for Antigua and
Barbuda.
Richards is charged with
promoting the attractions of
his lush tropical island with
its 365 beaches.
Last week he took time off
to host a six-hitting charity
promotion for World Cup
sponsors Johnnie Walker, the
firm who paid a million dollars
when Herschelle Gibbs struck
six sixes in an over.
A burning issue in Antigua
during the SuperEight second
round has been the absence of lo-
cal spectators at the new stadium,
named after Richards, and the lack
of a carnival atmosphere at venues
generally throughout the Caribbean.
"Yes, we are very disap-
pointed," Richards acknowl-
edged.
"There's an old saying in
the theatre business that even
though there is an old man and
dog inside the theatre, the show
must go on. I think the show
goes on."
The reply was worthy of a
career diplomat. His response


when asked why the unique Car-
ibbean atmosphere of sound,
spectacle and music was miss-
ing came from the heart. The
problem, Richards said, was the
perceived ban on musical instru-
ments and banners.

VIBRANT PEOPLE
"I am a Caribbean person
who said from the first day that
we had a match in Antigua that
we are an exciting and vibrant
people. The fact is that some-
thing seems to be missing," he


VIV RICHARDS
said.
"We are a rather unique
people. We are different to the way
you live in Europe, or maybe in
South Africa or in Australia.
We are different in terms
of our living style, our vibrant
way of life and I just thought
someone held them by the
throat and said, 'No, I don't
want you to shout anymore'."
Under Clive Lloyd, then
Richards, and finally under an-


other Antiguan Richie
Richardson, West Indies ruled
the world for 15 years.
At the heart of the team
stood Richards, the best and
most destructive batsman in
the world between 1976 and
1986, when his eye and re-
flexes began to dim and the
strain of non-stop cricket be-
gan to tell.
Richards suffered with his
team mates in the 1975-6 tour of
Australia where the West Indies'
1975 World Cup triumph was given
a different perspective as they
folded under the relentless pace and
aggression of Dennis Lillee and Jeff
Thomson.

RECORD TALLY
He was one of the few able
to stand up to the barrage and
his courage was rewarded by
the end of the calendar year
when he had scored a then
record 1 710 Test runs with
seven centuries in 11 Tests.
England, whose South Af-
rican-born captain Tony Greig
had promised to make the tour-
ists "grovel", felt the full wrath
of Richards' flashing stroke
play on grounds parched brown
by weeks of endless sunshine,
climaxing with 291 at The Oval.
Under Lloyd, West Indies
won two World Cups and beat
all-comers with the exception of
a series in New Zealand, when
Richards was absent.
As Lloyd's career drew to
its close, Richards was the
obvious candidate to succeed
Lloyd, but to his frustration
some among the West Indies'


administration did not think
he was captaincy material.
He finally took over in 1985
and in the next year led West
Indies to a 5-0 home series win
over England as well as hitting
the fastest ever Test century at
the Antigua Recreation Ground.
Until he retired after the
1991 series in England, Richards
never captained a losing team in
a Test series and he finished
with 8 540 runs at an average of
50.23.
,Richards consistently re-
jected huge sums of money to
plhy in apartheid South Africa
and, in common with Learie
Constantine before him, was
an increasingly articulate
spokesman for his race, his
country and the West Indies.
As his 84 Test sixes show,
he was also a supreme enter-
tainer. He never wore a helmet
at a time when, great fast
bowlers were common and his
initial impulse was always to
take the attack to the bowler.
Invited to comment on
England's Kevin Pietersen, the top-
ranked one-day batsman in the
world at the moment, Richards gave
what amounted to a summary of
his batting and cricket philosophy.
"1 love to see entertaining
people, people who. are brash, I
wouldn't call it arrogance," he
said.
"Long may he live because I
think in the sport we do need at-
tractive people. We do need enter-
taining folks; we do need people
with a sense of humour and all that.
"Characters, this is what
the game is all about."

last four would appear slim, but at least they can now hope.
South Africa had beaten Sri Lanka and World Cup
debutants Ireland before this game and their passage to

quite uncertain. They have four points and Bangladesh
have two.
Bashar praised Aftab Ahmed and Mohammad Ashraful for their
fearless approach to the South African attack after the duo shared
a fifth-wicket stand of 76.
Man-of-the-match Ashraful dominated the innings with his en-.
tertaining knock of 87 from 83 balls. Aftab also played his part
with a crucial 35 off 43.
"Ashraful played a wonderful innings for us and Aftab
was a really important player for us too," Bashar said. "But I

BANGLADESH dropped an-
other bombshell in the 2007
Cricket World Cup, this time
in the Super Eight Stage,
when they emphatically dis-
posed of South Africa by 67
runs, yesterday at the
Guyana National Stadium at


Providence.
The upset victory was
Bangladesh's second of the
prestigious tournament within
the last few weeks, following
their five-wicket demolition of
India a few weeks ago in the
Group Stage and also comes in
the wake of Ireland upstaging
of Pakistan earlier on.


It's also Bangladesh's fifth
win in World Cup cricket since
their advent in 1999 and their
first triumph over South Africa
in eight One-Day Internationals.
Mohammad Ashraful
blasted a stylish 87 from 83
balls, a knock laced with
twelve fours to propel
Bangladesh to 251 for eight in


their allotment of 50 overs. In
reply, South Africa were con-
demned to 184 all out in 48.4
overs.
South Africa were never re-
ally in the hunt losing wickets
at regular intervals amidst some
splendid bowling and fielding
from Bangladesh, once they
were reduced to 87 for six in the
27th over.
Poor shot selections also
played a part in the Proteas'
downfall.

1. MAGNETISE
Captivating others is a great
way of making yourself feel
fabulous, and glamour is a
core strategy for increasing
your "stand-out factor".
As first impressions are
formed in the first few seconds,
simple confidence tricks like
adopting a dramatic change to
eye make-up or accessorising
with a striking piece ofjewellery
can bring about a positive
change in how others perceive
you.
Swap ideas (and accessories)
with a friend to help get you
out of your style comfort zone.

2. ACTIVATE
Exercise releases endorphins
(happy hormones) and head
massage stimulates blood sup-
ply to your brain to energise
you, so combine the two as an
easy energiser. I
.Don't be shy, march briskly
whilst singing an uplifting song
at the same time to stimulate


the left and right side of the
brain. You'll probably cheer up
those around you too, spread-
ing the fabulousness as you go!


3. GLORIFY
Perception is reality! Boost
your self-belief by reminding
yourself aloud of the three
things you like about your per-
sonality, your three best physi-
cal features and three successes
of which you're truly proud.

4. INDULGE
People who believe they're
.worthy of treats generally feel
more fabulous than those who
don't. Make time every day to
pamper yourself.
Massage your face, hands,
and if possible, feet with a rich
moisturiser, drink a glass of ice
cold water and indulge your
sense of smell by dabbing a
small amount of an exotic fra-
grance on the back of your neck
and the pulse points on the in-
sides of your wrists.


--..c


.SI


Washing your clothes with
the luxurious fragrance of Lenor
Crushed Silk and Jasmine is also
a great way to indulge the
senses.

5. COMPOSE
Sit down comfortably with
your eyes closed. As you inhale,


clench your muscles and release
them on the exhale.
Do this three times whilst
visualising yourself in a posi-
tively fabulous situation, smil-
ing and laughing. This will have
an uplifting effect on the hor-
monal system.
By now you should begin to
feel noticeably more fabulous
than when you started.

6.TALK IS GOOD
New scientific studies back
up this feminine need to bond
and trace it to of all things a
chemical reaction.
.Scientists at University of
California, Los Angeles suggest
women respond to stressful
situations with a release of brain
chemicals that trigger the need
to make and maintain friend-
ships with other women.
The study basically dis-
putes the old theory that hu-
mans under stress have only two
options: fight or flight..Women,
have another powerful option
up their sleeve when faced with
demanding and traumatic situa-
tions.
Under stress women's bod-
ies release the hormone oxyto-
cin, which buffers the fight-or-
flight response and, moreover,
encourages women to tend to
children and gather with other'
women. The more omenn care
and befriend, the more oxylocin
is released and the more calm'
the women become.
The calming response,
however, isn't found in men be-
cause testosterone -which men
produce in boatloads when
they're under stress -seems to
reduce the effects of oxytocin.
Estrogen seems to enhance it.,

7.THE VALUE OF
FRIENDSHIP
As mothers who spend their
days taking care of others, it's
important to 'remember just
how much we need the nurtur-
ing that'close friendships wiih,


other women can provide.
Also with the arrival of a
first child, women are trust into
a new and strange land of par-
enthood. Many potential
friendships begin at local parent-
education and mommy-and-me
classes, where moms can share
similar fears.and joys of new
motherhood, as well as encour-
age each other through'rocky
times.

8. TIME TO VENT
Sometimes talking with

Z-


friends is a safe place to blow
off steam. Men always want to
"fix" a problem, but other
women know that sometimes
there are no solutions.
Sometimes we just want to
complain about something. It's
just enormously helpful to be
able to vent. There's a comfort
in knowing we all have the same
problems.
So choose a responsible
friend to talk to so that you
can vent and then have a
laugh at it all in the end.

cricket in Guyana


Guyana -- Chander


Paul and SRK
(Shonali Nagrani Daily News and Analysis of Mumbai, In-
dia writes this column straight from the Caribbean islands
where the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 is being held.)
If I had to define Guyana in one line it would be the land of
virgin beauty, flirtatious men and cricket loving women.
One day, I decided to take a trip into the Amazon rainforest. It
is here that I sat, with my legs dangling from the edge of a 740 ft
high cliff with the world's tallest single waterfall on my right
and the endless jungle on my left. As I looked up, barely two-feet
away from me, I saw a rainbow emerge. And that's when I told
myself, life is such a rainbow.
My adventures continued with speed boating into the
brown muddy Essequibo River, home to Guyana's richest gold
mines. On my journey up the river, with untouched
rainforests on either side, we saw rapids ahead. As they ap-
proached, I shut my eyes and prayed, while my boit driver
laughed away and asked me to hold on tight. And just as I
thought the boat might capsize, I nervously opened my eyes,
only to see the boat comfortably zipping over the rapids. The
story doesn't end-the ride back home was three-hours long,
in pitch darkness, with the ominous sound of animals through-
out, ending the adventure ride of a lifetime... in one piece.
Sixty per cent of Guyana's population is of Indian origin, in-
cluding the President! So it's no wonder that names like Basmati
Prashad and Balram Hanuman are the norm, there's an Indian res-
taurant at every comer, chole batura is the staple food, Bollywood
music blares from every salon, and Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh
Khan are household favourites.
If you thought, we in India loved cricket, wait till you meet the
Guyanese. Chander Paul and Sarwan are worshipped like heroes,
with songs for nearly every player. I happened to take a walk on a
lazy Sunday, only to find their entire population-men, women
and children including the physically challenged, out in the National
Park with bat, ball and wickets.
Tempted by the cricket fervour, I just had to jump in!

caster of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007.)

Why is it that people in
Dominica seem to grow old
more gracefully and live
longer than people else-
where?
Diet and lifestyle are clearly
all-important but are there other
factors at work here too: qual-
ity of life-perhaps, the support
of families, something in the
genes even?
Dominica boasts a remark-
able concentration of very old
people in good health and
they've begun to arouse the in-
terest of medical science.
In recent years the best hotel
in Roseau, Dominica's capital, has
found itself hosting some rather un-
usual celebrations: birthday parties,
often organised by a vast extended
family, for yet another of the
country's citizens reaching the age
of 100.
A CENTURY AND
STILL BATTING
Violet Wilfreda Joseph had
her 100th birthday party 8
years ago. She was born in the
last year of the 19th century
when British colonial rule in
Dominica had another 79 years
to run.
So how does it feel to wake
up in the morning knowing
you're 108 years old?
"Glad to see the day", she
told me, without a moment's
hesitation.
Her mobility is restricted
but she has good eyesight and
hearing, an astonishingly
unwrinkled face and still lives in
her own modest wooden home
in the centre of Roseau.
Could she give me any clues
as to how she's lived so long?
For years he's started the
day with a glass of coconut wa-
ter, a drop of gin and a banana,
though since her 100th birthday
her family has persuaded her to
drop the gin.
Fish is her favourite form of
protein, especially fish heads ("I


like sucking the bones", she told
me) and she's always enjoyed,
Dominica's rich diversity of
tropical fruit and vegetables.
And another important clue
perhaps, she shares her home
with three generations of her ex-
tended family, including several
children.
They always give her a kiss
before they go to school. "They
keep me young", she said.
According to the Dominica
Council on Aging, a charity
which keeps records of the cen-
tenarians, there are currently 22
on the island in a total popula-
tion of around 65,000.
That's 3 times the average
incidence of centenarians as in
developed countries such as
Britain and the United.
And these figures are
supported with written docu-
ments; birth certificates from
the British colonial era
alongside (mostly Catholic)
baptismal records.
Dr Noel Boaz, an American
professor of anatomy at the Ross
Medical School in Dominica, has
been researching the centenarians
for the past 6 years.
DIET AND LIFESTYLE
His findings so far suggest
that the key to their longevity
is diet and lifestyle, not genet-
ics.
Dominica is a mountainous
island with its interior cloaked
in dense rainforest. Roads were
few until well into the 1960s,
so when today's elderly were
young long distance walking on
rough terrain was a necessity of
everyday life, along with hard
physical work.
And their diet would have
included natural products from
the forest, herbs and herbal
medicines, as well as that rich
diversity of cultivated fruit and
vegetables, almost all of it
grown in their own gardens.

ward Georges is living proof of
the benefits.
Wheil I went to visit him
one sticky tropical evening I
found him lying not in but on
his bed in vest and shorts. He
sat up to greet me, and then
came the real surprise: his hand-
shake. I hadn't expected such
strength from a 102 year old
man.
For fruit and vegetables,
he told me, "everything I
lanted I ate and everything
ate I planted".
He also produced his own
cocoa, had his own chickens,
goats and a cow and did the
work on his smallholding after
the long trek back from his job
on a tobacco plantation.
His Sunday special, as he
called it, was a glass of strong
beer mixed with milk, eggs and
sugar, plus a dash of lime and
nutmeg.
Unusually among
Dominica's centenarians, he
smoked like a chimney (his
words) until he was seventy.
But it can't have had much im-
pact on his fitness once when
his family hid his cigarettes he
walked 13 kilometres to get
some more.
His ten children, who are all
still alive, range in age from 82
to 40, and when he was 98 Mr
Georges travelled alone to En-
gland to visit one of his sons.


...BUT WILL IT LAST?
It's hard not to feel a surge
of optimism in the presence of
such people, but the story of
Dominica's remarkable centenar-
ians may not have an entirely
happy ending.
Dr Boaz doesn't think the
phenomenon will last more than
another decade or so because the
lifestyle of younger Dominicans
is changing.
Two American-style fast-
food restaurants have recently
opened in Roseau. There are
TVs in even the poorest house-
holds, car ownership has risen
to one in four of the population
and toiling on the land is a last
choice job for the young.
The era the centenarians
lived through where they ben-
efited from modernity in the
form of better medical care and
improved public health, while
living a pre-modem lifestyle is
coming to an end.
The memories had come
tumbling out in the hour I spent
with Mr Georges and I heard
later that he'd said of our meet-
ing: "I appreciated that, because
what I had forgotten I remem-
ber now."
I too had deeply appreciated
meeting him because of the
glimpse he'd given me of a way
of life poor in the trappings of
modernity but rich in wellbeing
and human potential (BBC)

IT is estimated that every day
more than 13,000 persons die
of cancer all over the world.
The number is
progressively increasing because
nearly half of those who
succumb to the dreaded AIDS
actually die of cancer.
A significant number of
cancer patients exhibit the
disease in the head and neck
region and alert dentists are
frequently the first to detect the
condition. But this should not
be the case.
The victims themselves
should be the first to note the
incipient tumor. So its best that
the patient themselves know
about the physical
characteristics of the condition.
One needs to know certain
important points about cancer in
general and oral cancer in particular.
This is especially so since despite
not there being a cure for it,
prevention is obviously desirable.
In addition, appropriate measures
taken when the tumor is being
ensconced will go a far way in
mitigating the result. The following
notes epitomize the disease.
Cancer usually attacks
persons above 40 years old.
Almost every cancer that
affects the mouth begins as a
surface lesion. In other words,
you can generally see a
cancer when it starts to
develop in the mouth.
Twice as many men as
women get cancer. It takes about
five years for a cancer to
develop to the killing stage. At
that point in time, around half
the victims die. However, with
the right treatment for most
cancers, the patient usually


Cancer


survives for an additional five
years.
Unfortunately, the great
majority of cancer patients who
consult the Guyana Cancer
Society, are referred overseas,
especially to Barbados for
treatment. The cancer treatment
centre at the Georgetown Public
Hospital is run by Mercy
Hospital and access to
treatment is commonly
considered onerous for the
ordinary working class person.
I The two most common
areas in the mouth that
acquire cancer are the sides
and upper surface of the
tongue. Two weeks ago at the
Cheddi Jagan Dental Centre
I saw a 44-year-old male with
an advanced case of cancer of
the right side of the tongue.
For some reason, the gums
are never attacked by cancer
and I believe research should
be done to know exactly why
this is so.
Three broad groups of
agents believed to cause cancer,
namely physical, chemical and
viral. But exposure to these
agents (called carcinogens) does
not necessarily result in the
development of a tumor because


The Dentist Advises
I M:i iM MIII AMM


a number of familial, dietary,
hormonal, and sex-related
factors are known to modulate
the process.
Although the exact cause of
oral cancer remains unknown,
tobacco and alcohol have been
proven to be the most
important contributing factors.
Over 30 carcinogens exist in
cigarette and marijuana smoke.
In one study 97 percent of the
victims with oral cancer smoked.
The risk is reduced when the
cigarette carries a filter. But it
increases greatly with alcohol
abuse. In other words the
combined habits of smoking and
drinking alcohol increase the
cancer risk dramatically.
Chronic mechanical
irritation to the oral
tissues resulting from
sharp parts of dentures,
irregular or sharp teeth or-
fillings, food burns (hot
coffee), spicy food, poor
oral hygiene, and a large
number of other physical


agents have been
implicated as possible
factors in the development
of oral cancer.
About 25 signs and
symptoms indicate the
beginning of a cancerous lesion.
In general, any change in
appearance or sensation not
previously detected should be
seriously examined. Symptoms
include swellings, bleeding, a
crust on the lip, a rough spot
pain, taste changes, numbness,
chronic cough and dry mouth.
Signs include a red-patch, a
white patch swollen and
bleeding gums (leukemia),
ulcers, and bluish/brownish-
black lesion.
A mouth rinse of toluidine
blue will highlight hard-to-see
cancers. It is better to suspect
any abnormality than not to.
Persons should get in the
habit of checking out their
mouth often in front of a
mirror. Only then can
anything be noted.

IN 1994, the
Guyana Court
of Appeal
quashed a
m u r d e r
conviction and set aside
the death sentence of
Royston Ames, alias
"Comes" on the
ground that the death
row convict did not
have a fair trial.
The Appellate court
constituted by Chancellor
Kenneth George, and Justices of


Appeal Cecil Kennard and
Desiree Bernard found among
other things that the trial judge
had failed to draw the jury's
attention to the weaknesses in
.the identification testimony.
That court believed that that
lack of direction by the judge
resulted in the jury returning a
verdict of guilty for the murder
of Mohadeo Sharma, who was
shot to death during a robbery/
murder at Anna Catherina, West
Coast, Demerara on the night of
28th November, 1989.

South A




Cosmic


By Terence Roberts
THE simplistic sociological
notion that miscegenation in
South America had its origin
in European invasions, rape
and pillage of the stronger
over the weaker native Indian
and African slaves, is mostly
an exaggeration.
Thousands of years before
the European colonisation of
South America, actual people or
tribes, existed with features and
skin colour that could not be de-
scribed as racially pure or sim-
ply Amerindian, Asiatic, Afri-
can, etc.
The fact that South America
was the last huge geographical


area to be populated by humans,
accounts for the mysterious di-
versity of cultural objects dat-
ing back thousands of years,
continually discovered in South
America.
Many of these discoveries
seem to partly share references
to Africa, Asia, the Mediterra-
nean, and even prehistoric Eu-
rope. Yet South American cul-
ture from pre-Columbian times
to the present, is not any one
of these Old World cultures, but
an original and evolved culture
in its own right.
The roots of the South-
American concept of a "Cosmic
race" are probably the result of
an inbred awareness that the en-


America's


Race

tire continent's history is
steeped in chameleon natural
and human outward appear-
ances.
For example, the famous
Olmecs of antique pre-
Columbian Mexico, are a
people whose exact racial ori-
gin remains a mystery. What
seems more and more evident
is that the Olmecs, a people
who laid the foundation for
Meso-American civilisation,
were a dark-skinned people
.of considerable human
strength and survival skills
who were still in the chame-
leon evolutionary racial pro-
cess of early Asiatic man not
completely free of racial in-


(Part 4)


heritances from the dark con-
tinent of man's origin.
These people who became
the Olmecs did not look exactly
like Meso-American native
people who evolved over time
as isolated sub-groups adopting
to various climatic and nutri-
tional influences across the
Americas.
The history of the Olmecs
is rooted in strong early no-
madic tribes who trekked over-
land via Mediterranean-Asiatic
expanses, across the Bering
Straits, into the Americas.
Interestingly, scholars, like
Guyanese born Ivan Van
Sertima, who are more con-
cerned with African sea voyages
to America's New World before
European ones, are correct in
claiming such voyages, since the
proof exists of the presence of
a small amount of Africans ac-
cepted in Mexico and Central
America in pre-Columbian
times, but as regards Meso-
American civilisation being cre-


ated by Egyptian or other Afri-
can cultures such concepts have
continually been disproven,
even though researchers like Van
Sertima have been careful to
write their claims as fictional
speculation, as in his book,
"They came before Columbus".
The predominant proof of
South American originality
as a people and culture
among which the idea of a
"cosmic race" would take root
and flourish like no where
else in the globe, exists in
ancient pre-Columbian In-
dian integration with South
America's strangely magical
climatic, terrestrial and zoo-
logical/botanical processes.
Native Indian cultures
across the Americas created their
lives and cultures according to
the changes they closely ob-
served in nature, and the cosmos
they studied on the earth around
them and in the sky above. The
Olmecs made a cult out of the
Jaguar, imitated its eyes in


sculpture that was also based
on the form of human baby fe-
tuses, enlarged to enormous size
in order to visualize the impor-
tance of human evolution in
their cultural vision. Out of
such.specific interests linked to
their close study of nature on
earth and the cosmos, emerged
mythological and pragmatic
philosophies which did not re-
strict human appearances to a
stagnant existence, but rather
co-related to other creatures of
nature.
These are the sort of an-
cient pre-Columbian concepts in
the Americas which led to tribes
solving inter-tribal conflicts, and
keeping each other's members as
the famous "love slaves", told
by numerous European captives
who both observed and partici-
pated in the custom.
Indeed, those famous-regal
Africans who survived crossing
the ocean from Africa to the
Americas centuries before Euro-
peans arrived, were largely ra-
cially absorbed, integrated, and
in a few generations of misce-
genation, were no longer Afri-
cans, but Toltecs, Aztecs,
Mayans, bona fide people of
South American identity..
Large numbers of
Africans would only reappear
much later after European
conquerors introduced

LITERARY


In the land of




my literary


ancestors


by Petamber Persaud
TWO centuries after the
abolition of the transatlantic
slave trade in 1807, I was
standing alongside the River
Mersey, Liverpool, England,
deep, deep in thought.
It was one of those surreal
moments, difficult to explain;
the past engulfing me, trans-
porting me to another realm,
recreating the past.
"Liverpool", declared Karl
Jung, "was the pool of life, the
very centre f the life force it-
-self'. Liverpool was indeed a
labour pool for the workforce of
British dependencies around the


world. It was the port that was
most active in that slave trade
and it was from this port that
the experiment with Indian in-
denture labour started, ushering
in the first major migration of
people from India to British
Guiana. That scheme was called
the "Gladstone experiment".
John Gladstone, father of
British statesman, William
Gladstone, was the owner of
two sugar plantations in British
Guiana that were in need of
labour due to the abolition of sla-
very. My presence in the slave
trade capital was a spin-off to
attending a symposium
organised by the Centre for


Part III


Translation and Comparative
Cultural Studies/Centre for Car-
ibbean Studies, University of
Warwick, England. The sympo-
sium was on "The Literature of
the Asian Diaspora: The Carib-
bean" focusing mainly on the
subject "Coolitude".
So it was opportune for me
to be able to discuss
"Coolitude", "Negritude" and
"Creolite", and to revisit slavery
and indenture.
Monday, February 26,
2007, the sun was above me
(bareheaded; headwear was
never an agreeable part of my
apparel) but it was bitingly
cold; like my emotion sizzling


and chilly. As I looked'down
into the River Mersey, mixed
images crowded my mind, some
pleasant, other odious.
The profound words of
"Ferry me cross the Mersey"
(Gerry and the -Pacemakers,
1964) manifested themselves to
me differently to their original
intent, "Life goes on day after
day/Hearts torn in every way.../
People they rush everywhere/
Each with their own secret
care...". How true, life goes on
two hundred years after the
abolition of the slave trade, and
one sixty nine years after the
end of slavery/advent of Indians
to Guyana.
Life goes on in Liverpool,
the UK, USA, West Africa, In-
dia, the West Indies and
. Guyana....Yes, life goes on as"
later in the day, when my emo-


tional confusion was appeased,
I feasted on fish pepper soup
(4 pounds sterling, thank you)
in the Africana Restaurant &
Caf6 on Smithdown Road oper-
ated by persons originally from
West Africa. (The fish was tila-
pia monster size available
from the market "around the
comer".)
My thoughts on words of
the Mersey song brought to
mind a pop song and an ever-
popular hymn. The song
"Penny Lane" by the Beatles
immortalized the street that
was named in tribute to a
prominent slave trader, James
Penny. The Beatles came out of
the period labelled "Liverpool
Poets" following on'the heels of
"beat poetry". The Beatles pro-
duced other tunes like "Yester-
day", "Let it be", "A Hard


Day's Night", "Something", and
"Hey Jude" that are still popu-
lar in Guyana.
And the hymn that came
up for consideration was
"Amazing Grace" by John
Newton who was a slave ship
master plying the triangle
route Liverpool to Africa to
West Indies and back to En-
gland. The amazing twist to
Newton's story was that he
joined the abolitionists in the

fight against the evil trade of which he was once a part.
Newton produced other great redemption songs and "Journal of a Slave Trader" which furnished
novelist, Caryl Phillips, with material for his book, "Crossing the River".
Words turned to books, early, current and forthcoming titles. Early books: "Oroonoko or The Royal
Slave", a novel by an English woman, Mrs. Aphra Behn, published in 1678, tells the story of an
African prince, sold into slavery and taken to Surinam. "Letters by the late Ignatius Sancho", 1782;
Sancho was the first black prose writer to be published in England. "The Life of Olaudah Equiano" by
Equiano, published-1789; Equiano was a slave who brought his freedom and settled in England.
"Poems on various subjects, religious and moral" was written by ex-slave African-American, Phyllis
Wheatley, published 1773, London. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by African-American, Harriet Beecher Stowe,
first published 1852, later published in England, bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic.
The current book, just off the press, is "The Oxford Companion to Black British History".
Professor David Dabydeen was involved in this massive scholarship of over 300, 000 words
as its senior editor. (Dabydeen was in the background for a location interview by the BBC for a
programme to mark 200th anniversary of abolition of the slave trade while I engaged the River
Mersey). In this Oxford companion, we find the remarkable story of John Edmonstone, a freed
slave from Guyana, who taught Charles Darwin taxidermy which eventually led to Darwin's
evolution theory. Edmonstone learned his trade from Charles Waterton, author of "Wandering
in South America".
And the forthcoming title will be the publication of The First Crossing, Being the diary of
Theophilus Richmond, Ship's Surgeon on the Hesperus (1837-8). This important document is edited
by David Dabydeen, Brinsley Samaroo, Amar Wahab and Brigid Wells. Theophilus Richmond was
employed by John Gladstone as ship's captain on board the 'Hesperus' which set sail from Liverpool
in 1837 for Calcutta to collect the first batch of coolies to be shipped to Gladstone's estates in Demerara.
Richmond died from a strange illness and was buried in this country.
Words became flesh as Mr. Tate of Tate and Lye floated along the River Mersey clouding my mind
with the attendant ills endured by slaves and indentures workers in the sugar industry of British Guiana.
The sight of Mr. Tate also brought to mind another book, "Sweetening Bitter Sugar: Jock Campbell's
British Guiana, 1934-66", by Clem Seecharan, another outstanding Guyanese scholar living in England.
Bitter sugar. Two hundred years after the abolition of the slave trade. One hundred and sixty nine
years since full emancipation. Bitter sugar. One hundred and seventy since the "Hesperus" departed
Liverpool. Bitter sugar.
Sweetening bitter sugar as "Life goes on day after day/...People they rush everywhere/Each

African labour on plantations via slavery. Obviously it was easier for these earlier free
Africans to find acceptance, respect, and pleasure among native pre-Columbian civilisations,
than later among various imperial European conquests which imported Africans as slave labour,
devaluing their other human qualities.
Contrary to many misinformed and biased views about South Americans of mixed race, held by
many whites and non-whites, which consider their origin as based on abuse by slave-masters, etc, the
actual historical truth shows repeatedly where the conquered, both natives and slaves, instigated the
process of miscegenation often to create new societies which used and influenced the conquerors' powers
for their benefit.
It is recorded that days after the conquistadors of Spain arrived in Mexico, (an event that was
foretold in their mythological reasoning), the native Indian women seduced them in droves, claiming
their children as new members of their ongoing society. The children that were born were not Span-
iards, not Europeans, but mestizos, whose nationality became simply Mexican.
Similarly the Guaranos, (renamed "Warraus" by the British in Guiana), one of the most
influential native Indian people of South America, found in Guyana, Brazil, Venezuela, Uru-
guay, and Paraguay, were able to absorb Spanish and Portuguese and Dutch colonists to an
enormous extent, but their children remained rooted local nationals of these South American
nations.
In Brazil and Venezuela it has been chronicled that desirous African slave women were so power-
ful and influential over Portuguese and Spanish slave-masters who married them, that these women
withheld their favours until they convinced their husbands to order better treatment and bestow more
freedom on those of their race still bonded.
In South America, miscegenation was a huge catalyst in the evolving social process of true
human rights and qualities, which no Bill of Rights written on paper could guarantee fromi
the hearts of the bigoted. The Dutch colonists in the first 252 years of Guyana's history,
were regarded as failed colonists by the invading British because they allowed themselves to
be absorbed racially to a large extent by Native and African sensuality and simple lifestyle,
even living like them in thatched huts sometimes, with "a Caribee indifference", one shocked
19th century British writer wrote.
Out of such conversions to creole concepts of nationality, the idea of the "cosmic
race" found reality in South America, where identity is no longer racial, but simply an
unbiased identity, called Mexican, Brazilian, Venezuelan, Columbian, Chilean,
Guyanese, etc.

conveyed to the jury the
impression that the son's
identification of the appellant
by means of a cut finger
could support the wife's
identification.
The Court of Appeal
following a hearing on
September 13th, 1994, at which
34 cases were cited in support
of the arguments adduced by
lawyers, Mr. Khemraj
Ramjattan for the appellant,
and Mr. Ian Chang, the then
acting Director of Public
Prosecutions, for the State.
Chancellor George in his
judgment said that he agreed
with Justice of Appeal Kennard,
'hat the direction of the trial
judge that his evidence could be
used as supportive of the
mother's identification was
impermissible and for that
reason the appeal should be

evidence of identification was,
too tenuous to be left to them


for their consideration."
Justice of Appeal Kennard,
(who later became. Chancellor)
delivered the main judgment.
He noted that that the trial
judge had erred in law, having
regard to the general and
specific of the identification
evidence, when she failed to
withdraw the case from the jury
at the close of the case for the
prosecution.
Further, he pointed out that
the trial judge failed in her
summing up to dealcoherently
with the weaknesses of the
identification evidence, so that
the cumulative impact of the
weaknesses was not fairly
placed before the jury for their
consideration; and that the trial
judge failed to direct the jury
properly on-evidence of a
highly prejudicial nature when
summing up to the jury. .

sometime later in one of the

At about 12:45 a.m,
Deodat was aroused from
his sleep by something
cold being pressed against
his neck. He then realized
that someone was near to
him in the kitchen. That
person according to him,
was a man who said "Wake
up!" and he observed that
the person who had a gun,
also had a handkerchief
tied around his face. He
said that he had recognized

during which she pulled down
a white handkerchief, which he
had around his face. She then
realized that it was the
appellant, whom she had
. known' for several years, by the
alias of "Comes".
Earlier, the woman had
enquired from her son
whether he had known the
bandits and he said he
recognized "Comes" by a cut
right index finger."
After perusing the
evidence and the grounds of
appeal, Justice Kennard
said "In dealing with the
weaknesses in Indranie
Sharma's identification
evidence the trial judge,
having admitted the
evidence of what Deodat
had told his mother in the
absence of the appellant,
that is he had recognized
one of the men as 'Comes',
even though (strictly
speaking) it was not
admissible in evidence-in-
chief, should have told the
jury that it was significant
that she did not call out the
name "Comes" until her
son Deodat had mentioned
that name and this was after
she had asked him whether
he had recognized any of the
bandits and he had replied
by saying that he had
recognized 'Comes'".
Therefore, Kennard declared
that they ought to consider
whether her only reason for
saying it was "Comes" (i.e. the
appellant) was because Deodat
had told her that. If they so
found, they could not properly
find the appellant guilty, Justice
Kennard stated.
The resulting effect was the
appeal was allowed, the
conviction quashed and the
sentence set aside.
Justice of Appeal Desiree
Bernard who later became
Chancellor also, had
concurred.

ARONA Fall lives beside the
Langue de Barbarie national
park, a sandy-peninsula be-
tween the Atlantic Ocean and
the Senegal River.
The Senegalese delta is rich
in shrimps and fish, and attracts
thousands of migratory birds
who come to feed, rest and re-
produce.
Like most men here Mr
Falls used to be a fisherman.
But it was a struggle to feed his

Now he is a national park

He uses his fishing
boat to take tourists on '

Arona believes "
eco-tourism is a good
thing for Senegal. But

PROFITS
Although the park authori-
ties allow local people to use
some of its natural resources,
some villagers still resent it.
They say the Langue de
Barbarie national park only ben-
efits the white tourists.
And it is true, most of the
money made from tourism never
touches Senegalese soil.
But now people on the
Langue de Barbarie are being
given a financial stake in its suc-
cess.
US Peace Corp volunteer
Nat Parker has spent two years
recruiting men and women from
seven surrounding villages to
work in the park as eco-guards.
They plant trees, carry out
bird counts and look after tour-
ists.
On top of their wages,
the park also ploughs 15% of
its profits into a community
fund which offers loans and
credit for services such as
healthcare.
Mr Parker de-
scribes himself as a
small business consult-
1 ant.
He holds work-
" .7 shops in Wolof the

A canal built in 2002 to
prevent flooding in the city of
St Louis, is letting seawater
into the park, killing fresh-
water fish and eroding the
sand where the birds lay their
eggs.
And the Diama dam, which
irrigates farmers fields, means
fish cannot swim down river to
the park.
There is a long way to go
to change attitudes towards
conservation in Senegal.
But Mr Parker's vision of
sustainable tourism is a park the
villagers can conserve and de-
velop themselves, to lift them-
selves out of poverty.
For many, life here has not
been sustainable.
Every week men desperate
for work leave Senegal in
packed fishing boats, and die at-
tempting to reach Spain-illegally.

SOIL MANAGEMENT FOR




VEGETABLE PRODUCTION


INTRODUCTION
Soils are the medium in
which plants grow to feed us.
Plants obtain water and nutri-
ents from the soil. The soil is
therefore a valuable resource
since it is the ultimate source of
our food supplies. In fact, soils
are the very basis for our exist-
ence.
In order to guarantee that
our soils continue to sustain
vegetable production, we must
ensure that they are properly
managed. In Guyana, vegetables
are cultivated on a range of soil
types.
These range from clayey to
sandy to pegassy soils. Veg-
etables can be cultivated on a
wide range of soil types, once
proper management systems are
in place. Irrespective of soil
types, the management prac-
tices used for successful veg-
etable production do not vary
significantly.
This paper will initially ex-
amine the rationale for soil
management and later describe
in detail the major soil manage-
ment practices employed for


successful vegetable production.

SOIL MANAGEMENT
Soil management is a group
of methods or techniques used
to ensure that we get the maxi-
mum benefits from the soil,
whether it be yields of crops or
strong foundations that will not
crack.
It is well known that once
the appropriate soil manage-
ment practices are used by veg-
etable farmers, the results would
be beneficial to them. There
would be increases in yields,
better product quality and in-
creased profits. Good soil man-
agement practices would also
ensure that vegetable farming
practices are sustainable in the
long term.

OBJECTIVES
The main objective' of soil
management to develop condi-
tions that are favourable of seed
germination, emergence of
young seedlings, root growth,
good crop growth, grain fcrma-
tion and harvest.
In order to appreciate the
need for appropriate soil man-
agement practices to be utilized


the following desirable soil con-
ditions for^good vegetable
growth are highlighted:

(a) In order to have con-
ditions that are favourable for
seed germination, maximum con-
tact has to be made between
seed and soil. This is to facili--
tate the movement of soil mois-
ture and oxygen to the seed
zone, conditions that are neces-
sary for germination. This is the
main reason why there is need
for good vegetable seedbed
preparation.
(b) Some soils, especially,
some clays tend to form surface
crusts easily, when they are
dried. The crust appears as a
layer of hard mud on the sur-
face. Crusting is a problem for
seedling emergence and careful
attention must be paid to soils
which exhibit this property. If
soils with this property are to
be used for vegetable produc-
tion, then special management
techniques would have to be
employed.
(c) Some clay soils with
large and hard aggregate restrict
early crop growth. A similar

situation exists for sandy soils
thatlbecome massive and hard
when they dry. These condi-
tions, if they occur in the up-
permost soil layers, are not con-
ducive for good crop growth.
The uppermost soil layers are
the .layer where initial plant
growth and root development
occur. Special management tech-
niques must be employed to en-
sureithese conditions exist.
(d) Some soils can be-
come compacted, especially, if
heavy machinery is used to do
land preparation prior to plant-
ing. When soils become com-
pacted, root growth is limited.
This impacts negatively on wa-
ter and nutrient absorption.
Consequently crop growth and
development would be hindered.
It is therefore necessary that the
soil is loose and porous for good
root growth.

1. SOIL MANAGE-
MENT PRACTICES
There are a number of soil
management practices which
could be employed for success-
ful vegetable production. These
include tillage operation, liming,*
mulching, maintaining organic
matter, crop rotation, drainage
and irrigation.

1.1 Tillage Operations
Tillage is usually defined as
the mechanical manipulation
(soil-stirring actions) of the soil
aimed at improving soil condi-


tons affecting crop production. -
The nature and types of tillage
operations carried out depend
on the types of crops to be cul-
tivated.
However, irrespective of the
crop to be cultivated, tillage op-
erations are done to provide a
suitable environment for seed
germination and root develop-
ment by improving soil struc-
ture as well as for suppressing
weeds, incorporation of organic
matter into the soil, controlling
soil erosion and maintaining ad-
equate soil moisture.
The traditional and still
widely accepted practice of till-
age is based on a series of pri-
mary and secondary cultiva-
tions. The primary cultivations
are aimed at breaking the soil
mass into a loose system of
clods of varying sizes. The sec-
ondary cultivations which fol-
low are aimed at further break-
ing down the clods and smooth-
ing the soil surface in prepara-
tion for planting.
Ploughs are used for pri-
mary tillage- to break out,
crumble and invert furrows of
soil. In order to reduce compac-
tion, subsoilers and chisels are
sometimes used in primary till-
age operations. Disk harrows
and other implements are used
to refine coarse soil.conditions
during secondary tillage.
-Vegetable production re-
,quires the land to be properly
prepared. Clay soils generally
require ploughing a few times
before harrowing. Small-scale
equipment are now available to
do these operations. Some veg-
etable farmers involved in small-
scale production still utilize the
forking and chipping methods to
prepare their lands.
Irrespective of the tillage
methods used, conditions for
root development and growth,


and as a result the absorption of
moisture and nutrients by the
crop must be the goal of the op-
erations.
Some vegetables like bora
and vine crops (squash, pump-
kin, cucumber) are planted di-
rectly in the field (Fig. 1) whilst
others are initially planted in
seedbeds or seed boxes (tomato,
cabbage, boulanger, pepper) and
subsequently transplanted in
the field (Fig. 2).
Irrespective of whether
crops are planted directly in the
field or in seed boxes/seedbeds,
the soils needs to be chipped
finely. This is necessary for
maintaining good contact be-
tween the seed and the soil so
that adequate moisture and oxy-
gen would be provided for ger-
mination to occur. It is also rec-
ommended that rotted manure
or composted material be mixed
with the soil in the yield or in
seedboxes before seeds are
sown. This makes the soil more
"fluffy" and allows for easy
root penetration and growth of
seedlings.

From page XVI

A major constraint to veg-
etable production in Guyana is
the acidic conditions present in
the soil. Soil acidity affects veg-
etable crop growth in many
ways. A pH measurement of the
soil provides information on the
acidity or basicity status of the
soil.
Whenever pH is low (acid-
ity is high) one or more harm-
ful effects may reduce plant
growth and consequently yield.
A soil is regarded as acidic if its
pH is below 7.0. Most of our
soils are inherently acidic, espe-
cially, the pegassy soils.
Most vegetable crops grow
best when the soil pH is in the
range 6.0 -7.0

(Table 1).
The pH of the soil there-
fore serves as a good indicator
as to the type of crop to be
grown. Most of our common
vegetables could be produced
-when the soil's pH is in the
range of 5.5 6.8.

When the soil pH is below
5.5 vegetable growth is inhib-
ited. This is manifested in
stunted growth of plants and


poor yields. In the case of to-
matoes, the fruits develop blos-
som and rot (Fig. 3) when the
plant is grown under acidic con-
ditions.


Fig. 3 Blossom end rut in
tomatoes

This condition arises from
low levels of calcium in the soil.
Irrespective of what other soil
management practices (including
fertilizing) are used, if the soil
acidity problem is not corrected,
vegetable production will be
hindered.
In order to correct the oil
acidity problem, the soil must
be limed. Liming is the manage-
ment practice used to correct
soil acidity problems. Liming
materials include substances
such as un-slaked lime (CaO),
slaked lime [Ca (OH2)], calcitic
limestone (CaCO2), dolomitic
limestone [CMg (C03)2], and
low grade phosphate.
In order to determine the
amount of lime to apply to get
to the desired pH for success-
ful vegetable production, a soil
test must be done. The recom-
mendation from the soil test
must be used at all times. It is
important to note that the prac-


tice liming should not be done
for every cropping season.
Once the soil is limed prop-
erly, it may not be necessary to
lime again in 3-5 years. Too
much lime (over-liming) can
cause deficiencies of some mi-
cronutrients (iron, manganese,
copper/zinc).
The recommended rate
of limestone must first be
broadcasted on the soil
surface. It should then be
incorporated into the soil
during tillage operations.
Adequate moisture is nec-
essary for the limestone to
react with the soil to re-
duce its' acidity. Liming
reaction takes at least four
weeks to go to completion.
Thus, to ensure the benefi-
cial effects of liming, crops
should be planted/trans-
planted at least two weeks
after the lime has been in-
corporated into the soil.
Liming is not recom-
mended during the crop
growing season as the ben-
eficial effects would not be

corn, cucumber, pumpkin, squash

cauliflower, broccoli

1.3 Mulching
One of the most important
principles of soil management is
the maintenance of soil cover.
Maintaining soil cover is impor-
tant for the following reasons:

(i) It reduces water wind
erosion (soil aggregates are not
separated).
(ii) There is increased
water infiltration (no crusts are
formed).
(iii) There is a reduction
of moisture loss by evaporation
and an increase in moisture
availability.
(iv) It provides improved
conditions for germination.
(v) There is an increase in
the organic matter content of
the soil.
(vi) Weed growth is sup-
pressed (FAO, 2000)
One way through which the
soil surface could be covered for
vegetable production is by the
use of mulches.
Mulch is any material such
as straw, dried grass, crop resi-
due, plastic or manure which is
placed over the soil surface.
The main purposes of
mulching are to conserve mois-
ture, thereby, enhancing soil
conditions for good crop growth,
suppress weed growth, reduce


soil temperatures and add nutri-
ents to the soil when the mate-
rial decomposes.

It should be pointed out
that when mulches are piled high
and touch the stem or trunk of
plants, problems can arise' Over
mulching results in excess mois-
ture storage which can lead to
root rot and consequently plant
death.

1.4 Maintaining soil
organic matter
Soil organic matter consists
of partially decayed and par-
tially synthesized plant and ani-
mal remains. When applied to
the soil surface, it serves ini-
'tially as mulch.

There are many benefits to
accrued from applying organic
matter to the soil. These in-
cludes:

(a) Improved drainage
and moisture holding capacity;
(b) Improved aeration
and root penetration;
(c) Reduced inputs of
fertilization;
(d) Improved crop, resis-
tance to pests and diseases;
(e) Some weed suppres-
sion effects;
(f) Increased resistance
to soil erosion;


(g) Increased population
of soil micro-organism which al-
low for

Improved availability
of nitrogen and mineral nutrient;
Further improvement
in soil structure; and
Improved distribution
of nutrients in the soil.


1.5 Crop Rotation
The practice of growing the
same crop(s) on the same land
season after season is referred to
as monoculture. This is the kind
of system practiced in the rice
and sugar industries. This prac-
tice is not recommended for
vegetable farmers.
Vegetable farmers are
recommended to practice crop
rotation. This means growing
different crops in a given place
in succeeding seasons or years.
The principle behind this
system is that-different crops
need different minerals, have
different rooting depths and
attract different pests. By
moving them around, the soil
does not become depleted and
pests do not build up. An
example of a rotation sequence

ects


polluted through the process of
pollution control and
enforcement. Some of the
strategies adopted by EMD to
assure that the EPA Act, 1996
is rigorously enforced include:
Authorizing New
Developments: Any new
development that may have a
significant effect on the
environment is required to
conform to the publication of
EPA's decision, which
determines whether or not an
Environmental Impact
Assessment (EIA) is required
and whether or not to grant an
environmental authorization.
Monitoring of
Authorised Activities: As
part of EPA's responsibility
to ensure that developments
mitigate against pollution and
remediate when necessary,
compliance monitoring of
operations and monitoring of
the immediate surrounding
area is conducted.
Monitoring of
unauthorized Activities: This
includes observations which are
made by the affected public and
reported to the EPA for
investigation. These may come
in the form of pollution
complaints.


Authorisation Existing
Developments: The Agency
through the Environmental
Protection (EP) Regulations
2000 has implemented a
registration process to
regularize existing industrial
activities. To date over six
hundred businesses have
registered. The process was
changed recently however,
requiring existing activities
that would require an
environmental authorization
to apply to the Agency for an
Operation Permit. The
Agency conducts audits/site
inspections of existing
operations which have
applied or registered. These
visits help to determine


whether these operations can
be regularized through
issuance of a permit. The
permit includes conditions,
which specifies what
improvements are expected
within a specific timeframe
agreed to by the owner and
the Agency. Sector specific
operational guidelines and
compliance schedules are also
available for sectors such as,
rice, wood working, energy,
tourism, mining, poultry
rearing, etc. to assist
operators with
environmental management.
The purposes of these are to
upgrade these sectors io an
acceptable environmental
standard.

MANAGEMENT...
for the first season is shown below where the field is divided
into four beds.

1 2
Leafy vegetable e.g. poi, Legume e.g. bora, black eye,
pak choi, cabbage red peas
3 4
Root crop e.g. eschallot, Fruit crop e.g. Tomato,
sweet potato, carrots boulanger
For the next planting season, the leaf crop goes to bed 2,
the legume crop to bed 3, the fruit crops to bed 4 and the root
crop to bed 1. A legume crop is always included into rotation,
as it adds nitrogen to the soil.
From a soil management perspective, crop rotation improves
soil structure and maintains soil fertility. This results in improve-
ment in, crop yields and, quality with less inputs and consequently
increased profits for farmers. Additionally, a well designed crop ro-
tation sequence allows for year round vegetable production.

1.6 Drainage
All plants need air as well as moisture in their cost zones. Ex-
cess water retards plant growth because it fills the soil pores and
restricts soil aeration.
For successful vegetable cultivation, the removal of excess wa-
ter is a necessity. The excess water must be removed by draining.
In the general sense, drainage means the "outflow" of water from
the soil. More specifically, it serves to describe the artificial re-
moval of excess water, on the set of management practices designed
to prevent the occurrence of excess water.
In most vegetable producing areas in Guyana, surface
drainage is the norm. This is the removal of free water tend-
ing to accumulate over the soil surface .by appropriately shap-
ing the land.
Drainage is beneficial to crop production since it increases crop
yields by:

1. Removing excess water;
2. Increasing the volume of soil from which roots can ob-
tain food;
3. Increasing the movement and quantity of air in the soil;
4. Reducing soil erosion;
5. Increasing the bacterial activity in the soil, which improves
soil structure and makes plant food more readily available; and
6. Removing toxic substances, especially salts, from the root
area.

Installation of an appropriate drainage system is a requirement
in vegetable production. As stated before, most vegetables cannot
withstand periods of water logging. Similarly, excess .moisture is
prohibitive to germination.
Taking the above into consideration vegetables must be culti-
vated on raised beds with furrows (drains) between the beds. The
inter-bed furrows must link to some central (main drain) system
which will eventually empty into some drainage canal. In the case
of vine crops, where individual beds are seldomly used, prepara-
tion of mounds into which the seeds are planted is the recommended
practice.

1.7 Irrigation
Irrigation is the application of water to the soil for crop utili-
. nation. Vegetable farmers obtain irrigation water from rainfall, irri-
gation channel, storage tanks, as well as from the main water distri-
bution systems intended for domestic use:
When irrigating, farmers must ensure that the techniques are
done correctly. For example, the splashing of water on the soil sur-
face could lead to crusting of the soil surface, which was previ-
ously described. This is the reason why irrigating equipment such
as water cans and sprinklers are fitted with nozzles to allow the
water to be applied as sprays.


t


Benefits from proper irrigation include:

(a) Increased yields;
(b) Improved vegetable crop quality;
(c) Controlled time of planting and harvesting to obtain more
favourable market price; and
(d) Increased efficiency of fertilizer use.

Irrigation is a requirement for year round-vegetable production.
The kind of irrigation practiced and the requirements vary with the
type of vegetables cultivated. For example, leafy vegetables, (poi,
pak choi) have higher water requirements when compared to veg-
etables like bora and pumpkin.
Techniques such as ploughing and ridging assist in the storage
of soil water. In the case of ploughing (especially on clay soils) the
depressions created store soil water. Ridging also assists in storing
soil water.
Efficient irrigatiofisystems currently used for vegetable pro-
duction include the sprinkler and drip systems. The drip system
could be combined with mulching. The benefits accrued from uti-
lizing these systems for outweigh their initial costs.

The Passage
"What in heaven's name! Who gave you permis-
sion to go in my work-basket and take my thread and
tracing paper? What is that you got sticking to your
foot? My good linen sheet!"
Philip sensed immediately that her rage had gone to
fever pitch.
"Your father will hear about this!"
She boxed his ear and dragged him from under the
house and into the house through the kitchen.
Philip knew well how strict his father was. Once
or twice already he had been at the receiving end of
that thick, slick brown belt that looked so cold and vi-
cious that it made him tremble just to look at it. He
wondered without much choice in the decision how his
father would treat him when he heard about how he
was under the house making a kite and stripping a piece
off a linen sheet for a tail.
But Philip liked his father in spite of this and though
his punishment in the past had hurt he felt he never got
more than he deserved. He had been naughty at times
and forgetful. He hoped this time it wouldn't be too se-
vere; prayed that by the time his father came his mother
would have cooled down enough to mix a plea of le-
niency with her complaint against him.

What to do: Continue to write this story.

The Poem

HOME THOUGHTS

Oh something just now must be happening there!
That suddenly and quiveringly here,
Amid the city noises, I must think
Of mangoes leaning to the river's brink,
And dexterous Davie climbing high above,
The gold fruits ebon-speckled to remove,
And toss them quickly in the tangled mass
Of wis-wis twisted round the guinea grass.
And Cyril coming through the bramble-track
A prize-bunch of bananas on his back;
And Georgie none could ever dive like him -
Throwing his scanty clothes for a swim;
And school-boys from Bridge-tunnel going home,
Watching the waters downward dash and foam.
This is a daytime dream, there's something in it,
Oh something's happening there this very minute!

Question:
1. How do you know that the poet is away from the
place he is remembering?
2. Why has he not mentioned any of the unpleasant
memories? Is he being romantic and sentimental?
3. What do the words do to give pleasure in this
poem?

Writing: Let the poem above help you in your writ-
ing of a story on the topic, "Jonathon sat on the shore
and wondered".

COMPREHENSION
At last, the great moment arrives. The television
play goes 'on the air'.
The sets have all been dressed and lit during the stu-


dio rehearsals. The artistes to make the first appear-
ance are in position on the opening set. The rest of
the cats are standing by, waiting. The cameras are in
their places a laid down in the camera script, all ready
to take the pictures.
Cables snake across the floor of the studio between
a mass of equipment. Lights are blazing and micro-
phones dangling from 'the ends of the booms. And per-
haps twenty or thirty people (apart from the actresses
and actors)m are quietly moving about the studio stage
hands, firemen, property men, make-up girls, and vari-
ous technicians of different types.
The director says a few words to his cast and his
production assistant. He then goes into the control gal-
lery overlooking the studio to direct the performance
with his team of assistants.
Very soon a red light comes on in the studio. This
is a warning from the engineers that they are ready to
connect the studio to the network' the system that will
carry the sound and vision signals to the transmitting sta-
tion. Immediately the red light comes on, there is com-
plete silence.
Everyone feels a little tense. Seconds seem like
hours as they wait for the play to begin. After a few
seconds two sign light up -'Sound On' and 'Vision On'.
The studio has been connected to the network and is
'alive'.
The producer gives an instruction to the production
assistant on the "intercom'. 'Cue artistes,' says the pro-
ducer. The production assistant gives a signal and the
play begins.
The artistes say their first lines and the first pictures
are taken ....As the play proceeds, the dolly operators
move their cameras silently across the studio floor, and
the cameramen take pictures from all angles. Working
to their camera script, they move from set to set for
the different scenes, and take thousands of pictures.
As the various cameras move about the studio, the
'shots' from each of the four (or whatever number it
may be) appear on their respective television screens
in the control gallery. The director watches the screens
most critically and selects the pictures in the correct or-
der for transmission.
Switching from camera to camera as, he selects the
pictures as they are required to cover the action, and'
they are transmitted within a split second of their being
taken.
And so the television play comes on to your screen.

SHAH Rukh Khan, hailed as "King Khan" of the Indian film industry this week unveiled
his wax figure at the world famous Madame Tassaud's in London, joining two other
mega Bollywood stars, Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. Can you tell which is the
real Shah Rukh?


Brands Return to Bollywood

Stars as Cricketers Fail


BOLLWOOD stars are once
again top endorsers in India
after its cricketers failed the
advertising industry with a
dismal-first-round exit from
the World Cup last month.
Cricket-themed campaigns
worth millions of dollars sell-
ing everything from consumer
goods and electronics to auto-
mobiles and financial services -
were yanked out of the media
as companies tried to disasso-
ciate their brands from the
cricketers.
India is a major market for
the five major global cricket
sponsors South Korea's LG
Electronics, PepsiCo Inc,
Hutchison Telecom, motorcycle


maker Hero Honda and Indian
Oil.
All have been hit by India's
early exit from the World Cup,
with total losses estimated at
nearly $37 million, industry of-
ficials said.
Television and print com-
mercials featuring cricketers,
who until the World Cup de-
bacle were more in demand
than film stars, have been
withdrawn by Pepsi, electron-
ics firms Videocon and
Sansui and consumer goods
company ITC, among others.
"If this goes on and we
keep losing, then I tell you all
cricketers will be off the clients'
list," said Alyque Padamsee, an


Indian advertising analyst.
"They'll say 'No I don't
want any cricketers, you can
never tell if their form is up,
their form is down. Give me
movie stars'."

SAFER BET
India 's advertising market
grew 23 per cent in 2006 to $3.6
billion and is forecast to expand
18 per cent in 2007 on the back
of booming economic growth.
The industry is now re-
considering a strategy of hav-
ing cricketers as brand am-
bassadors because of the
team's fickle fortunes and
the repeated failure of indi-
vidual players.


ARIES -- Has your drive for success gone into overdrive? It's all well and good to be
aggressive about reaching your goals, but you have to be mindful of the fact that not
everyone else is on your timetable -- and not everyone else has the stamina that you
do. Your personal desires are not something everyone can relate to, so if you want
other people on board, you may need to focus on doing some persuasive
encouragement.


*' '

/ 1 \
>A


(


TAURUS -- Reaching out to help solve the problems of other people will help take
. your mind off of your own problems -- and give you a much healthier perspective.
Your situation is so much better than it could be, and today you need to appreciate
that fact. Not everyone is as loved or as lucky as you. The grass isn't always greener
on the other side of the fence. Sometimes, it's full of weeds. Volunteering your time in
service of others will help you feel happier about your lot.

GEMINI -- Your mind is open very wide right now -- you should follow any urge
you have to explore new ideas or challenge your own long-held beliefs. Specifically,
take another look at your expectations in the workplace (for yourself and other people).
You might be a little too unrealistic about how much can get done in the amount of
time you have. Create a more practical schedule, and you'll have a clearer idea of what
things will look like down the road.

CANCER -- Even though you're in big demand socially, you may not feel like hanging
/ with other people right now -- and that is okay! Don't worry that if you refuse a few
/ invitations now, you'll never be invited anywhere again. The people who want to
spend time with you respect you and your boundaries, and they are willing to wait
until you're ready. When your social obligations feel like chores, that's your
subconscious telling you to take a break and recharge.

LEO -- You're way too smart to be fooled by a smooth talker, although you might
come awfully close today when some flattery turns your head. This charmer has a
great line and a good story, and your'interest is piqued. Follow your curiosity as far
as you feel comfortable doing so, but keep in mind that all that glitters is definitely
, not gold. If something (or someone) seems too good to be true right now, then guess
what? Have fun, but protect yourself.

VIRGO -- You are getting a strong sense of what you can become in your future life
today, and this is going to drive you away from focusing solely on your daily routine.
Your worldview is expanding, and you have your own spirit to thank for that. You're
feeling very ambitious, and you should start letting your ambition drive your actions
-- especially in a business or school context. Start talking to the people in power, and
find out what you need to do to gain their favour.

LIBRA -- Getting past the past can be very difficult, but today a new person or a
new experience will help you take a giant step forward into your future. Past patterns
in your life no longer have to be repeated, especially now that you have the wisdom
of hindsight to show you the right way to handle this situation. All you have to do is
stay positive about where you want to go, and refuse to go back to where you don't
want to go. Keep your focus forward.

A SCORPIO -- You are entering a phase in which your ambition is going to take a back
seat to your desire to get along well with others. Harmony is very important to you
right now, in part because you truly value the people who surround you -- and you
SWant to get to know them better. Let other people carve out the big ideas; make it
your job to help their ideas become reality. You'll still get all the credit you deserve --
and you'll have stronger relationships, to boot.

SAGITTARIUS -- Don't fall for the false promises of retail therapy -- shopping
trips won't help you figure anything .out right now! Instead of buying things in an
effort to distract yourself from what's bothering you, go for a minimalist experience
with a friend or a romantic partner. Seek out some simple pleasures -- take a walk,
share a home-cooked meal or play some basketball. Frivolous material goods won't
bring the joy they once did -- you're more mature than that now.

CAPRICORN -- New ideas are not always good ideas. Don't unthinkingly accept a
peculiar new theory that another person may try to push on you today. In a romantic
context, if you follow faddish relationship rules or philosophies, you could end up
playing too many games and not being genuine. In a business context, suggesting a
new idea might get you noticed, but make sure the idea is sound before you speak
up! Otherwise, you'll be noticed for the wrong reasons.

AQUARIUS -- There are no chains heavy enough to hold you back today, what
with all that vigorous positive energy coursing through your bones! You may-perceive
some obstacles, but they will not be as insurmountable .as they appear -- so don't
give them a second thought. You do not need to pay attention to the word 'no' today.
As long as you. abide by the law (and by your own well-developed moral code), you
are free to do as you wish!

PISCES -- You have some friends in high places whom you don't even know about
yet -- and they will be calling on you to help out with a special project. Do what you
can to come to their aid, even if there's nothing in it for you. It's important to foster
connections with powerful or influential people right now. Your chameleon-esque
qualities will help you adapt to a social situation you're not accustomed to, so accept
unexpected invitations with enthusiasm.

CATHOLIC Church officials have reached a milestone in the
drive to canonise Pope John Paul II.
The first stage in the beatification process that could eventu-
ally lead to sainthood, closes on Monday, the second anniversary
of the pontiff's death.
The Church has moved remarkably fast on this issue. An in-
vestigation to assess the Pope's reputation for holiness was
launched after chants of "Santo Subito" or "Sainthood Now" erupted
during his funeral.
Canon law normally only allows a beatification process to be-
gin five years after a candidate's death, but this was waived by
Pope Benedict XVI.
Investigations at diocesan level have now closed and findings
will be handed to the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of the
Saints.
These will include interviews carried out by a board of experts
in both Rome and Krakow where John Paul was cardinal before
being elected Pope in which witnesses will have testified to his


THE INNER WHEEL CLUB of Georgetown hosts its
annual Easter Hat Show and Garden party on April 14 at

life and soundness of faith.
'FAST-TRACKING'
According to Church historian Professor Michael Walsh, this
is turning into an unusually speedy process.
"Joan of Arc, who fought the English back in the 14th Cen-
tury, has had to wait 600 years, but John Paul II, looks likely to
do it in five or six," he told the BBC.
"It depends how much pressure people bring to bear. If there's
a great deal of devotion to an individual and there's enough money
around not that people are being bribed, but it does cost money
to go through the whole process then it can be speeded up."
Much of the drive to canonise Pope John Paul II quickly is
coming from his native Poland. The investigation there was headed
by Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, the Pope's former secretary and
now Archbishop of Krakow.
In a carefully timed interview last week, he told a newspaper
in Poland that he believed the beatification process could be by-
passed and the canonisation process embarked on quickly.
Church author John Wilkins told the BBC there was historical
precedent for this.
"In the Middle Ages people could become saints straight away
- they were just assumed to be saints. A similar push is coming
from Poland. But the Vatican, on the whole, appears to be erring
on the side of caution."
CAUTION
Mr Wilkins points out that the -
recent furore in Poland over col-
laboration between Polish priests
and the communist-era authorities
is one reason for this caution.
"The Vatican will want to en-
sure that no errors turn up after a
hasty beatification. This would
stop the canonisation," he says.
"This all needs to be seen in .
the perspective of history we're I
too close to it. There are people
who are urging caution, who are
saying: 'Don't rush ahead so that A French nun is at the
you're living in John Paul's slip- centre of miracle claims.
stream wait a bit so you can see
things in the round and this will
prevent you from making errors.'"
At the centre of the case for beatification are claims by a French
nun that she has been cured of Parkinson's disease by praying to
the late pontiff.
The Vatican requires one miracle to have been performed at both
the beatification and canonisation stages.
It used to betwo at each stage, but that was changed by John
Paul II, who canonised more saints than any other pope.
The purported miracle often the recovery from a medical con-
dition has to be attributed to an intercession by the putative saint
and it must have been posthumous. The recover needs to be sud-
den, complete and enduring, and certified as inexplicable by doc-
tors. -
Sister Marie Simon-Pierre who is with an order in the south-
ern French city of Aix en Provence is said to suffered from
Parkinson's, a degenerative disease of the nervous system, since
2001.


A push to fast-track the process is coming from Poland
She has testified that she was cured in June 1005 shortly after
the death of John Paul II, whose final years were marked by the
disease.
Medical experts will now have to assess these claims.
MEDICAL CLAIMS
Dr Charles Clarke, a consultant neurologist told the BBC News
website that he knew of no recorded incidents of recovery for es-
tablished, advanced Parkinson's disease.
It is not easy to diagnose Parkinson's, as there are no particu-
lar tests that can prove whether or not someone has the condition.
"It is possible to misdiagnose Parkinson's disease," says Dr
Clarke. "There are various other disorders of movement that in their
early stages can look like it symptoms could be tremors or lack
of movement."
In an account of her ailment, Sister Marie Simon-Pierre said
her illness was so far advanced that she found it difficult to write.
But after she prayed she found her writing was clearly legible and
she had explained what had happened to her mother superior.
"I went to bed... I woke up at 0430 in the morning," she told a
press conference last week. "And I got up all at once from my
bed... and there I felt transformed, I was not the same person, in
the inside there was something difficult to explain to you, I cannot
tell you what I felt inside, it was too strong, too big, a mystery."
. Medical experts will take into account whether or not the nun
suffered from what Dr Clarke described as "psychiatric mimics",
which can show similar symptoms as Parkinson's disease, but those
symptoms cannot be attributed to neurological disease.
These include such things as somatoform disorder in
which symptoms tend to range from sensory or motor disabil-
ity, hypersensitivity to pain and conversion disorder, which
is also known as hysteria.

The 2006 Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T)
jingle competition winner, Sean English, was interviewed
recently to get the facts "straight from the 'horse's mouth", as to
who he really is and what he has been doing during his one-year
reign.

Twenty-three year-old Sean, who is currently undertaking an
internship at the Federal Management Services group, is also
studying feverishly at the University of Guyana in pursuance of
a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing.

He recalls the days of his life before the jingle competition: "I
was a regular person with no flare or any hype to my life! I was
living alone at the time in Cummings Lodge, trying to make life
work as I pursued studies leading to a Diploma in Marketing at
the University of Guyana. I used to sing and write songs with my
friends from my Church circle, so for me, singing wasn't a
problem. Everything was normal for me up until the jingle
competition." ,
Asked about his 'interest in the competition, Sean explained:
"My uncle was the one who brought the competition to my
attention; he knew that I liked singing, so he thought that I
should give it a shot! For me, it wasn't really a big deal! I'm the
type of person that would do something just for the experience,
and whatever the outcome, I would say to myself, at least I tried!
So, with encouragement from my Uncle and my colleagues at
the Guyana Elections Commnission (GECOM) where I worked
at the time, I went ahead and uplifted an application form and
submitted it."
As the competition went full speed ahead, the
Guyanese public was introduced to much new talent, including
Sean. The public watched as he moved higher and higher, closer
and closer to the finals. But, as Sean puts it: "I tried not to get too
excited when I was short-listed the first time... I can't say that I
wasn't happy, but I wanted to keep calm and not hype myself up
to give myself false hope."
"When I was short-listed again, and was now in the
final five, I realized'that I might have a chance of winning this
thing! The fact that I was the only male in the final five made me
wonder if this early success was just to show that GT&T was not
biased toward males or if I have talent indeed that they might be
interested in," Sean remarked.
Here is where he began feeling excited about the whole
thing. Sean went on to record his video for the competition, and
he also started hearing his jingle more and more on the airwaves.
Obviously this is. something new for somebody that had a
"regular" life before. Sean commented: "I had to find a way to
handle all of this attention that was now coming my way,
because I was nowbeing heard by the entire country! Strange
people would come up to me, and ask me to sing my jingle
because they liked it! I mean this was phenomenal. I had to make
a conscious decision to be humble and not let any of this get to
my head, because if I did this, and I didn't win, I would have
been greatly disappointed that I became caught up with the
popularity".
As the days went on, GT&T Cellink Plus went ahead to
take the finals to the National Cultural Centre. Hundreds of
people swarmed the event all in support of their favorite. Not
forgetting that English wasn't the only person in the competition
with great talent, Sean was asked about his competitors and what
he thought about them: "My strongest competitor was Celeste
David (the second place winner). She had presence! She's multi-
talented. I believe she was the only person that gave me a great
challenge in winning this thing, I thought to myself that I would
have been second and she would've won."
Word on the street at the time was that, Celeste was in
and Sean was out! But instead of that rumor lasting all the way to
the final outcome, Sean's supporte-s started stepping up their
campaign, and they came out in their numbers at the finals which
he described as amazing. He went on stage and did what he had
to do. When he was finished he just said to himself, "whatever
happens happens!'"
"When I 'was announced the winner, it didn't occur to
me that it was me who had won! After a few seconds then is
when everything came to me! And I realized that had I won! I
actually won! It was a great feeling; I never won anything like
that before. That night I felt foreign. Cellink Plus had given me
my first taste offanhe".
Sean English walked away that night as the winner of
the GT&Tjingle competition and walked into a whole new life
afterwards: "Ever since that night, I became a very popular
person. I was asked to sing at many events not only for GT&T
but in my Church circles as well. I even participated at a fashion
show for Karen Frazer Miracle Hands. I was given a lot of
opportunities and although I was becoming famous in my social
groups, but I stayed humble and simple, because I learnt from
people that became popular for different reasons and who also
got false at the same time, so I didn't wantthat to be my fate."
Sean became a part of the GT&T learn and worked his
best. He even got a bite of the '\Ve Linkin' 30 minute
programme, shown every Monday. English not only showed his
skills in singing, but also revealed that he had a knack for hosting
and impromptu speeches.
The youngster expressed gratitude to GT&T for the
exposure and experienced he gained throughout his year oflame
stating: "I was able to travel around Guyana, meet new people
and learn new things about the company and the country. The


jingle competition really brought out more in me, and I will be
forever grateful to this great company for the time and resources
they have invested in me. I realized that GT&T has seen the need
to use the cell phone market to bring young people out and
showcase their talent in song."

Sean's reign is almost over, and just earlier this week, this year's
competition was launched. This time, it's not only a jingle
competition but a song competition as well. He was also present
at the launch and while he was disappointed at not being able to
participate this year he urged contestants to take full advantage
of the competition, come with their best songs and "do their
thing."
The 2006 GT&T jingle winner also gave us a sneak
peek of the his future plans by explaining what he has in store for
the public after he would have moved off the scene as jingle
winner. "I'm a unique person, and I believe that my music
should be unique as well. During my year as jingle winner I have
been exposed to different types of music I normally listen to
music that would appeal to my soul and give me comfort. I'm
just not into fancy beats; I'm into good lyrics and songs that


make sense to me. I've been looking down the road of soft rock.
There are very good musicians out there that I can take pattern
from, and I've chosen to make a fusion of rock and my own
creation to make my music different"

As mentioned .before, Sean is working feverishly
toward his degree in Marketing and is currently taking a break to
resume classes in September. He also gave words of wisdom to
the new applicants who would be working on their lyrics: "Don't
forget your family and friends, when you send that application.
You might get to the finals... you might even win. Try not to get
caught up with all that's going on around you: You might get all
the attention from other people, but your family are the people
that were there first, so don't neglect them in anyway!" Strong
words coming from the totally devoted Christian.
English will be making moves in his singing career
later on. He says he's on a break now and will come out with a
bang with his "unique" line of music. The ambitious young man
also made it clear that he will be pulling out all the stops to better
himself in all aspects and gives warning to the Guyanese public
to "look out!" because when he hits, he'll be hitting hard!
