ERC advises on critical area

in law enforcement agencies

By Chamanlall Naipaul
THE Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) has identified seyL
eral critical areas in the law enforcement agencies which neld
to be addressed to bolster their image and performance.
In its third annual report submitted to the National Ai.embl
the ERC recommended that there is need for ethnic balance in thn

SI-- and this would mean addressing the type of foods and the time of

The ERC reported too that last year was an extremely busy

aimed at giving Guyanese at all levels the opportunity to interface
and focus on issues relative to relations, and ultimately, the devel

With support by the parliamentary political parties, civil soci-
ety, international donor community and Guyanese in their comniu-
nities, the ERC fulfilled its mandate thereby contributing to the
peaceful and violence-free environment experienced in Guyana be-

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) -
President George W. Bush
said on Saturday he felt
"awe" in the presence of Pope
Benedict, a fellow religious
conservative who urged him
to seek "regional and nego-
tiated" solutions to Middle
East conflicts like Iraq.
"I was talking to a very
smart., loving man." Bush said of
his first talks with Benedict
since he became Pope in 2005.
"After 6-1/2 years of being
a president ... I've been to some
unusual places and met some in-
teresting people and I was in
awe," Bush told a news confer-
ence in Rome. "It was a mov-
ing experience for me."
Addressing the 80-year-old
Roman Catholic leader as "sir"
instead of the usual honorific
"Your Holiness", Bush heard

the Pope's concerns about the
Middle East and the plight of
Christians in Iraq.
Bush told him of his
government's efforts to combat
AIDS and malaria in Africa and
hunger and po enrty.
He told the Pope before re-
porters about what he called
"the very strong AIDS initia-
tive" at the Group of Eight
summit this week. which
pledged $60 billion to fight dis-
eases ravaging Africa al-
though much of that was made
up of existing pledges.
A Vatican statement said
Benedict and Bush had dis-
cussed the Middle East and the
Holy See's "hope for a regional
and negotiated solution to the
conflicts that afflict that re-

Five Lebanese

soldiers killed in

refugee camp battles

NAHR AL-BARED, Lebanon (Reuters) Five Lebanese sol-
diers were killed yesterday in heavy fighting against al
Qaeda-inspired militants entrenched in a Palestinian refu-
gee camp, a military source said.
At least 125 people, including 53 soldiers and 42 militants,
have been killed since the fighting began on May 20 almost
three weeks ago making it Lebanon's worst internal violence
since the 1975-1990 civil war.
The military source said another soldier had died from
wounds sustained earlier. Security sources earlier added that sev-
eral soldiers were wounded in Saturday's fighting in which
machinegun tire reverberated and heavy artillery shelling rocked
the camp from early morning.
A Palestinian source inside the camp said at least four Fatah
al-Islam militants died in the intensive assaults in which heavy
black smoke billowed from many of the squalid Nahr al-Bared
camp's bombed-out buildings, some riddled by bullets and punc-
tured by shells.
"The army is trying to control positions that the militants
are using to target the army." a military source said.
Only a few thousand of the 40.000 residents remain in the
coastal camp which is short of food, water and electricity.
"I saw at least 17 civilian homes destroyed. An oil refinery
warehouse and at least five cars were burning." said Mahmoud
Abu Jihad, a resident in the camp.
Another camp resident, Milad Badran, said: "The
army's bombardment is haphazard and is hitting civilian
areas. It is impossible to describe the humanitarian situa-

Maharaj is charged with the rape of a 22-year-old Guyanese
woman and with indecently assaulting her. The charges stem

warned Shakeer Baig, meteorological officer III.
Baig was speaking Friday at the Crowne Plaza in Port-of-
Spain during a media briefing on the launch of the hurricane
"T&T does in fact lie within the hurricane belt and the pos-
sibility exists that within a hurricane year we can have a direct
"And landfall contact does exists," Baig added.
He said this information was not meant to scare people but
rather to sensitise the public.
"Seventeen storms are predicted to occur in 2007. nine of
which are expected to become hurricanes," Baig said.
"Five of these storms are also expected to intensify," he
Also speaking at the briefing was Willis Mills, director of
T&T's meteorological services.
Willis said unlike reports of 2007 being one of the hottest
years so far, there have been previously hotter periods.
"One of our coldest month is February and in a previous
year we have had a temperature of 36 degrees during that
month," Willis said.
Identifying the months January to May as the period com-
prising the dry season, Willis said in the beginning of January
2007, there was almost no rainfall.
"In March there was some rainfall here and there as in the
month of April. We had rainfall on April 6, but did not have
any until on April 16.
"We again did not have any rainfall until April 25 and after
that there was little rainfall in May," said Willis.
He added that although some rain fell on May 4, it was
not until three weeks later that the country experienced
more showers.

UNITED STATES ambassador to Trinidad and
Tobago, Roy Austin, last week gave an assur-
ance to Prime Minister Patrick Manning
that could easily be offered also by his counterparts
in Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and other CARICOM
That assurance, as stated by Ambassador Austin
during discussions pertaining to the alleged terrorist
conspiracy involving four CARICOM nationals, is that the
twin-island republic was NOT viewed as "a hotbed for
The envoy's pronouncement, welcome at these chal-
lenging times, simply reflects a mature understanding
of current realities in CARICOM as an integrated com-
munity of sovereign states.
For all the misrepresentations and misunderstand-
ings that often emerge in Washington-CARICOM rela-
tions, the consensus, across our region, would be that
it is in the interest of our Community to strengthen and
maintain the best possible relations with the USA.
Not on any ad hoc or expedient basis, whether on
crime and security challenges to combat narco-traffick-
ing, its related evils of gun-running, money laundering
and corruption. Rather in pursuing cooperation along
clearly defined parameters in the wider context of socio-
economic development.
The recent joint United Nations/World Bank report on
the negative impact of serious crimes on economic de-
velopment in the Caribbean should serve as the latest
reminder for a new, enlightened approach in pursuing
national/regional security objectives within the broad
framework of economic development linked to trade, in-
vestment and foreign policy goals.
In r.onsciderl n ,',+,, iitiati ', the C J -"" -



ers may be advised to reconsider current attitudes rou-
tinely adopted in annual "country reports" relating to real
and perceived problems of the illegal drugs trade, traf-
ficking in persons; gun-running and human rights vio-
lations, as well as new concerns about potential terror-
ist threats.
Although US authorities would not admit to it, too of-
ten the pattern reflected in these annual assessment
reports has been one of unmistakable bias. arrogance
and quite judgemental with yawning gaps when it
comes to substantiated data.
At the same time, these reports continue
to conceal failures by US authorities to honestly engage
in information-sharing in support of what's often dog-
matically offered as "facts" or "evidence"-even when re-
quested to do so. Guyana, for one, has been so affected
among CARICOM states.
Not surprisingly, therefore, public statements, by both
US and CARICOM authorities about confidence-building
measures to strengthen cooperation links often evoke
In this context, one glaring example as it relates to
"mutual cooperation" is the continuing failure by the US
to come to terms with resolving an issue of national im-
portance-the sudden withdrawal last year, on the eve
of his appointment as acting Police Commissioner, of
the diplomatic visa of Mr Henry Greene.
If, while Winston Felix was Police Commissioner, the
earlier withdrawal of Greene's diplomatic visa could
somehow have been rationalised, there remains some-
thing fundamentally flawed in leaving unresolved-al-
most a year now-this very sensitive issue of revocation
of the visitor's visa of the top security officer in a country of
no shortages in political mischief and vicious rumours.
How much longer, therefore, will it take

the relevant US decision-makers in Washington and
Georgetown. to permit this undesirable state of affairs.
even as both the George Bush and Bharrat Jagdeo ad-
ministrations keep up the rhetoric about their "coopera-
tion" in confidence-building measures for mutual secu-
rity benefits?
A requested intransit US visa recently granted to
Commissioner Greene for a trip to The Bahamas, via
Miami, on official business, should influence the pro-
cess for renewal of his eligibility of a regular visitor's
The US should know that in holding the head of the
Guyana Police Force virtually to ransom-for so it
seems-over a regular visitor's visa cannot be helpful ki
fostering the quality of mutual cooperation requiredin
the fight against criminals and terrorists.
In the absence of any known substantial reason to
the contrary, it is, therefore, time for a reversal-in the
interest of the Guyana Police Force and dignified US
Guyana relations.

New York is hell

for Young Osama

NEW YORK (Reuters) After
years of being taunted as "bin
Laden" and "terrorist" at
school, Osama Al-Najjar at-
tempted suicide last July at
the age of 15.
Now 16, he is an extreme
example of the difficulties fac-
ing some Arabs in New York,
thn city hit hardest by the at-
tacks of September 11, 2001.
"They destroyed every-
thing nice in our life with what
tiey did to him," said Suad

firing to racist abuse she said
vas heaped on her son while he
.as a student at Tottenville
High School in Staten Island.
.Osama is now officially
known as Sammy. He changed
his name in December to escape
the stigma attached to the name
he shares with al Qacda leader
Osama bin Laden.
"I just wanted to make his
life easier," said Suad, who im-
migrated from Jordan with her
husband and four children in
December 1999. Her eldest son
has served in the U.S. Navy in
the Iraq war.
Leaders of the Muslim coin-
munity which numbers
about 600,000 in New York
City and is among the fastest
growing groups in the city, ac-
cording to a Columbia Univer-
sity study say Osama's case
highlights an increasing distrust
and fear of Islam among Ameri-
cans since 9/11.
"There's become this cul-
ture of Islamophobia in Ameri-
can society." said Arsalan
Iftikhar, national legal director
of'the Council on American-Is-
lamic Relations.
"Unfortunately, kids are not

Fear of Islam and Arab cul-
ture has been evident in the di-
visiveness over the founding of

the Khalil Gibran International
Academy, a publicly funded
Arab studies school scheduled
to open in Brooklyn this fall.

Alicia Colon, a columnist
for the conservative New York
Sun newspaper, denounced the
school as a madrassa, or Mus-
lim religious school. Evoking
images of racially motivated
lynchings in the U.S. South of
bygone generations, she urged
opponents to "break out the
torches and surround City Hall
to stop this monstrosity."

original location a building
that houses an elementary
school in Brooklyn's Park Slope

plaining of overcrowding.

"There are a number of par-
ents that are concerned about
(the fact that it is an Arabic stud-
ies school), but the majority is
concerned about whether
there's adequate space," said
Tom McMahon of the parent
teacher association at Boerum
Hill's Math and Science Explor-
atory School.
The controversy surround-
ing the Khalil Gibran school is
nothing compared to what
Osama AI-Najjar went through.
His mother says Osama be-

der the incessant anti-Muslim
jeering by teachers after enter-
ing Tottenville in the fall of
2004. The former junior high
school honor student began to
fail classes, got into fights, and

ran away from home on a num-
ber of occasions.
'1 didn't v ,ant to sta\ in
school after that." Osama, a thin
teenager with piercing green
eves. said while nervously
chewing his thumb. He said his
classmates were more tolerant
than his teachers.

abuse despite repeated requests.
his mother said. The school
principal declined to comment.
"Harassment and bullying
for any reason is not something
we tolerate." said New York
City Department of Education
spokeswoman Dina Paul Parks.
She declined to discuss specif-
ics of the case because of a law-
suit filed by Osama's family.
The complaint filed in U.S.
District Court in New York
charges the city and the school
with racial and religious harass-
ment, which it says led to the
boy's suicide attempt.

The victim was identified as Brentnol Mingo, a 49-year-
old cattle farmer from Paradise Village who, reports said, was
slashed across the throat during an argument with another man.
Reports stated that Mingo, a father of four, had been argu-
ing with the other man in the vicinity of the popular village
disco 'Coco Cobana', and had turned to walk away when he
was attacked from behind.
He fell to the ground and died on the spot.
His attacker, who is known, fled the scene and up to
late last night was still on the run.

'Twas a dangerous cliff, as
they freely confessed, though
to walk near its crest was so
pleasant; but over its terrible
edge there had slipped a Duke
and full many a peasant. So
the people said something
would have to be done, but
their projects did not at all
tally. Some said, "Put a fence
'round the edge of the cliff,"
some, "an ambulance down
in the valley". But the cry for
the ambulance carried the
day, for it spread through the
neighboring city: A fence
may be useful or not, it is
true, but each heart became
full of pity for those who
slipped over the dangerous

Calling the BMD bluff

VLADIMIR Putin is defi-
nitely a player, and the pro-
1posal that the Russian presi-
dent sprang on George W.
Bush at the G8 meeting in
Germany on Thursday was a
classic political ambush. You
claim to be putting intercep-
tor missiles and X-band ra-
dars into Eastern Europe to
intercept nuclear-tipped,
long-range missiles coming
out of Iran, said Putin to
So why don't you make our
radar station in Azerbaijan,
which overlooks all of Iran from
its perch high in the Caucasus
mountains, part of the system'?
'he Bush administration
has nu intention of letting Rus-
sia share in its beloved Ballistic
Missile Defence system (aka
-Son of Star Wars"), nor does
Rusia believe that the system
is either necessary or functional,
bul Putin's negotiating ploy
wa brilliant. If Iran had either
nuclear weapons or long-range
ballistic missiles (which it
doesn't), and if the United
States had the technological ca-
pability to intercept such mis-

siles (which it doesn't). then ac-
cess to a Russian radar station
in the mountains north of Iran
would be exactly what Wash-
ington wanted.
"Let's let our experts have
a look at it," said President
Bush about Putin's "interesting
proposal." and that's the last
that anybody will hear about
that, but it did give Putin the
opportunity to show that the
new US bases in Eastern Eu-
rope are not about what Wash-
ington says they are about. So
what ARE they about'?
That is a lot harder to an-
swer, because the whole BMD
boondoggle is a weapons sys-
tem in search of a threat.
Twenty-five years ago, when
the Blessed Ronald Reagan first
proposed the "Star Wars" sys-
tem, it was going to shoot down
thousands of Soviet warheads
with directed energy beams, just
like in the movies. Very cool.
But now there is no Soviet
Union, and the only BMD tech-
nology that actually exists is
clunky missiles that occasion-
ally manage to shoot down other
missiles, but mostly miss or

just don't launch.
Time to move on, you
might think, but Reagan is a Re-
publican saint, and George W.
Bush had promised to roll out

some BMD system when he
became president. Besides, there
are several hundred thousand
jobs in the US military and de-
fence industry that depend di-
rectly or indirectly on BMD.
So the system was unstoppable.

even if it didn't work. and in
2002 the Bush administration
tore up the Anti-Ballistic Mis-
sile treaty in order to be free to
deploy it.
The next question was
where to put it. The first
choices were Alaska and Cali-
fornia, in order to intercept the
intercontinental ballistic mis-
siles that North Korea doesn't
have. Next on the agenda, obvi-
ously. was stopping the non-ex-
istent Iranian missiles, which re-
quired US radars and intercep-
tor missile bases in Eastern Eu-
rope. The Polish and Czech
governments eagerly volun-
teered to host them. not because
they believe in a threat from Iran
(they don't), but because they
don't like Russia and badly' want
American bases of some sort on
their soil.
Interestingly. a majority of
Poles and over two-thirds of
Czechs don't want the Ameri-
can bases, perhaps because they
realise that the bases will just
annoy the Russians without
providing any real protection.
But if all this is just meaning-
less military nonsense serving a

In the old world order, be-

Since the fall of the Berlin

taken on new life. Borders have
been breaking down. capital

just a useful stick to beat the Ameri-

the United States and NATO have

ten years.

- President tells journalist

HEAD of State President
Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday,
following a briefing by offi-
cials of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation on ongoing in-
vestigations into an alleged
plot to blow up pipelines feed-
ing one of New York's busi-
est airports, told a Miami
Herald journalist that terror-
ism is alien to Guyana and
the Caribbean value.
President Jagdeo, during an
extensive interview on a gamut
of issues pertaining to the al-
leged plot, said, "I don't know
our people as being radical. It's
a strange thing for me. I don't
know of this racialism. It is
alien to our people. We don't
talk that way. We don't behave
that way. We criticise each
other. We have all kinds of in-
ternal problems, but we treat
foreign people wonderfully. I
can't understand us trying to
harm people abroad."
The Head of State said a
more symmetrical system of in-
formation-sharing between the
United States of America and
Guyana is necessitated.
"In several matters the US
needs to be much more sym-
metrical in sharing information.
They need to see the Region
and its Government as true
partners in this fight against ter-
rorism, because terrorism is
alien to the Caribbean value."
He said the remarks being
made as to why more informa-
tion was not channeled to the
Guyana Government on intelli-
gence gathered surrounding the
terror plot is not an issue for
"The very nature of under-
cover work requires that people
don't share everything at each
point in the game; even here in
Guyana when our people a7
underc.;7. i don't want a brief-
ing until they have a finding. So
this is why I am not worked up

about why they weren't shar-
ing this earlier. They have to un-
derstand the nature of under-
cover work. Sometimes you
have to keep your cards close
to your chest." he explained.
President Jagdeo indicated
that the need for more symmetri-
cal flows of information from
the US to Guyana was high-
lighted during the meeting with
the FBI officials at State House.
He conceded that local law
enforcement officials were
knowledgeable of the matter for
some time now.
The President was asked if
there are any known Jamaat or
radical groups operating in
Guyana to which he responded
in the negative.
"They may have contacts

but the mere fact that they dis-
cussed it and there is enough
from what I have seen and heard
coming out from the surveillance
that they discussed this plot
and that's breaking the law:
that's plotting to harm innocent
people. Therefore, we are going
to co-operate with the US Gov-
ernment on that aspect of it be-
cause they broke the law and
there was a conspiracy, frankly
speaking. But their capacity to
do it. I too, question."
Commenting further on any
Al Qaeda cells functioning in
Guyana. the Head of State re-
sponded: "I am not aware that
there are radical Al Qaeda cells
here. We don't have any intel-
ligence to that effect ... In 2005

President Jagdeo elaborated
more on the closed-door meet-
ing x\ ith him, FBI officials and
the US Ambassador to Guyana
Da\ id Robinson.
"I don't know whether we\
\want to broad brush the whole
Region in this way and when I
met with the FBI agents earlier.
I said exactly that. That I hope
this does not trigger paranoia in
the US Government agencies
which would lead to the target-
ing and profiling of people from
our region and causing problems
for them."
The President explained
that 99.9 percent of Guyana's
Muslim community believes in
the Koran. He further com-
mented that it was indicated to
him by these very Muslims that
the Koran has no place frr ex-

it spun as anything else except
a farce," Bob Geldof said.
He added that instead of re-
committing to the promises made
two years ago, the G8 leaders
had to get serious and deliver.
But he praised UK Prime
Minister Tony Blair for pursu-
ing the anti-poverty campaign
"to the point of exhaustion".
Oxfam said only $3bn of
the money was new.
UK development agency
Tearfund said there was nothing
in the G8 communique which
could benefit f.rzd ii Africa, and
the key issues of water and sani-
tation were not mentioned at all.
The AIDS package was also
criticised as inadequate.
"While lives will be saved
with more money for Aids, this
represents a cap on ambition
that will ultimately cost millions
more lives." said Steve
Cockburn of the Stop Aids
Mr Blair said "immense

Most campaigners acknowl-
edge that some progress has
been made since Gleneagles.
Writing off the debt of 18
African nations has allowed
Zambia, for instance, to expand

But other commitments -
like a sustained boost to aid, and
the pledge to work towards a

still not materialised.
Nigeria's newly elected
President Umaru Yar'Adua, one

creased efforts to resolve the cri-

Is Prince Philip an island god?

By Nick Squires
BBC News, Vanuatu

Britain's Duke of Edinburgh
may be planning a quiet
birthday celebration at home
this weekend, but there will
be feasting and flag-waving in
an isolated jungle village in
the South Pacific nation of
Vanuatu, where he is wor-
shipped as a god.
The Land Cruiser ground
up the rough dirt track, pitch-
ing and rolling like a boat. The
trail was so severely eroded
that it was more like a river
bed, with miniature canyons
gouged out by the monsoon
I had been drawn to this
poor excuse for a road by a
story so unlikely that it sounded
barely credible.
It was one I had wanted to
investigate for years.
Legend had it that there was
,clutch of villages on the island
.f Tanna in Vanuatu which as
bizarre as it may seem wor-
shipped Prince Philip as a god.
How and why they had
chosen the Duke of Edinburgh,
I had no idea. I fully expected
the story to be either false, or
wildly exaggerated.
Distant adoration
After an hour's drive we
pulled into a jungle clearing
shaded by giant banyan trees.
A short walk led to the vil-
lage of Yaohnancn, a collection
of sagging thatched huts. banana
trees and snotty-nosed little
With the help of my driver-
cum-interpreter. Lui. I was in-
troduced to the chief of the vil-
lage. Jack Naiva was a bright-
eyed old man of about 80. with
grey hair and a faded sarong
wrapped around his wiry body.
I felt deeply foolish telling
him I had come to his village to
ask if he worshipped the
Queen's husband.
I wondered if it was all
some sort of elaborate joke.
But the look on Chief
Jack's face told me it was not.
He dispatched one of the villag-
ers and a few minutes later the
man returned from a hut with

three framed pictures.
They were all official por-
traits of the Prince.
The first. in black and
white, looked like it was taken
in the early 1960s.
The second was dated 1980
and showed the Prince holding
a traditional pig-killing club a
present from the islanders.
The most recent was from
seven years ago.
They had all been sent from
London with the discreet per-
mission of Prince Philip, who is
apparently well aware that he is
the subject of such distant ado-

Ancient legend
Chief Jack squatted on the
ground as he told me how the
Prince Philip cult had come
It seems that it emerged
some time in the 1960s, when
Vanuatu was an Anglo-French
colony known as the New
For centuries, perhaps mil-
lennia, villagers had believed in
an ancient story about the son
of a mountain spirit venturing
across the seas to look for a
powerful woman to marry.
They believed that unlike
them, this spirit had pale skin.
Somehow the legend gradu-
ally became associated with
Prince Philip, who had indeed
married a rich and powerful
Villagers would have seen
his portrait and that of the
Queen in government outposts
and police stations run by Brit-
ish colonial officials.
Their beliefs were bolstered
in 1974, when the Queen and
Prince Philip made an official
visit to the New Hebrides. Here
was their ancestral spirit, re-
splendent in a white naval of-
ficers' uniform, come back to
show off his bride.
"He's a god. not a man," the
chief told me emphatically,
pointing at the portraits.

Response to colonialism
None of the cult followers
can read or write.
Prince Philip gave permis-

sion for portraits to be sent
from London
They told me somewhat
amazingly that it was only
this year that they learnt the
date of the Prince's birthday -
10 June.
As Philip turns 86 and they
are planning to mark the occa-
sion with a feast and ceremonial
drinking of kava, an intoxicating
brew made from the roots of a
pepper tree which makes your
mouth go numb.
They have even acquired a

large Union flag which they are
going to run up a bamboo flag
It is easy to see all this as
so much South Seas mumbo
But that would be a grave

cated response by islanders in

mentals of their ancient beliefs

Wife who killed pastor husband may serve 60 days

SELMER, Tennessee (CNN)
- A woman who killed her
preacher husband with a
shotgun blast to the back as
he lay in bed was sentenced
Friday to three years in
prison, but she may end up
serving only 60 days in a
mental hospital. .
Mary Winkler must serve
210 days, or about seven
months, of her sentence before
she can be released on proba-
tion, but she gets credit for the
five months she has already

spent in jail. Judge Weber
McCraw said.
That leaves only two
months, and McCraw said up
to 60 days of the sentence could
be served in a facility where she
could receive mental health
treatment. That means Winkler
may not serve any significant
time in prison.
Winkler, 33. was convicted
of voluntary manslaughter in
April and could have received
up to six years for killing her
husband. Matthew. in the par-

sonage where the family lived
in March 2006.
At her trial she testified she
was physically and emotionally
abused by her husband, but at
her sentencing hearing Friday
she said, "I think of Matthew
every day. and I'll always miss
him and love him."
She pleaded to the judge for
leniency, and asked to be re-
united with her three daughters,
who are now in the custody of
Matthew Winkler's parents.
The judge denied Winkler's re-

quest for full probation or judi-
cial diversion, which would have
eventually cleared her record of
the conviction.
Prosecutors had sought a
murder conviction against Mary
Winkler. who they alleged had
been trying to keep her husband
from learning about a check-kit-
ing scheme. They claimed she
had become caught up in a
swindle known as the "Nigerian
scam," which promises riches to
victims who send money to
cover the processing expenses.

Winkler, however, testified
during her trial that her husband
hit and kicked her, forced her to
look at pornography and de-
manded sex she considered un-
natural. Jurors were shown a
pair of tall, platform shoes and
a black wig Winkler said she was
pressured to wear during sex.
Matthew Winkler's family
said at the sentencing hearing
that Mary Winkler's allegations
amounted to a second attack on
her husband, a popular 31 -year-
old preacher at the Fourth
Street Church of Christ in
"The monster that you have
painted for the world to see? I
don't think that monster ex-
isted." said Matthew Winkler's
mother, Diane Winkler.
When Mary Winkler took
the stand, she turned to her
husband's family and told them
she was "so sorry this has hap-
pened." She said she understood

they were angry with her and
that she prayed every night for
them to have peace.
Mary Winkler was arrested
a day after shooting her hus-
band. She was found 340 miles
away on the Alabama coast,
driving the family minivan with
her daughters inside.
Diane Winkler testified that
the girls, ages 9. 7 and 2. were
having nightmares about people
with guns breaking into their
"You've never told your
girls you're sorry. Don't you
think you at least owe them
that?" she asked.
Mary Winkler's sister.
Tabitha Freeman. asked the
judge to give her a chance to be
reunited with her children., and
called her "the best example of
a good person I can think of."
"She just needs tIhem.
She's not complete without
them," Freeman said.

Bush urges

senators to

try again on


WASHINGTON ( CNN) President Bush, calling the
nation's current immigration situation unacceptable, urged
senators to try again to pass legislation that he described
as imperfect but the best option available.
In his weekly Saturday radio address, Bush said the bill
would not grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, that they would
have to pay fines and take other steps to get on a path to legal
status and possibly citizenship.
"Securing the border and upholding family values are not
partisan concerns," the president said. "They must be addressed,
and this bill is the best way to do it."
Bush recorded his address Friday in Germany where he was
attending a summit with other world leaders.
The White House and a bipartisan group of senators drafted
the wide-ranging bill, but they could not overcome steady at-
tacks from the left and right during weeks of Senate wrangling.
When the Senate failed Thursday to end debate and schedule a
vote, Democratic leaders set the bill aside with no promise of
reviving it.
In his radio address, Bush acknowledged mistakes in han-
dling immigration and pledged to improve the bill as it moves
through Congress.
"Today, illegal immigration is supported by criminal enter-
prises dedicated to document forgery, human trafficking, and
labor exploitation," he said. "This is unacceptable, and we need
to fix it in a way that honors our finest traditions."
He said the bill "puts border security first, establishes a
temporary worker program to meet the legitimate needs of our
growing economy, sets up a mandatory system for verifying
employment eligibility, and resolves the status of the estimated
12 million people who are here illegally."
Conceding that a 1986 immigration overhaul largely failed,
the president said his administration "is determined to learn from
the mistakes of the past decades." The bill would double the
number of Border Patrol agents, he said. build more border
fences and employ infrared sensors and unmanned aircraft to
detect illegal border-crossers.
"Unlike the 1986 law, this bill gives honest employers the
tools they need to ensure that they are hiring legal workers,"
Bush said. including "a tamper-resistant identity card." Busi-
nesses that "knowingly hire illegal aliens will be punished," he
Addressing the word that has rallied the bill's opponents,
the president said: "Amnesty is forgiveness with no penalty
for people who have broken our laws to get here." The bill, he
said. "requires illegal workers to pay a fine, register with the
government, undergo background checks, pay their back taxes,
and hold a steady job."
If those immigrants eventually want a green card for
permanent residence, he said. they will have to pay an-
other fine, learn English "and return to their home coun-
try so they can apply from there."

Printing books online: an

author you can't refuse

NEW YORK (Reuters) -
Lawrence Durrell and Henry
Miller are among the world's
most respected authors, but
for a while they had a hard
time finding a publisher.
Rather than seek a main-
stream outlet for racy novels
such as "The Black Book" and
"Tropic of Cancer," they used
the Obelisk Press, a French
publishing house started by Jack
Kahane to print his own novel.
That was the 1930s. Now,
a young Henry Miller could use
new Internet companies like
Blurb.com, i-Universe, Lulu.com
or Xlibris to print his book -
a.id even sell it through their
oiline stores.
Gwen Fuller used Blurb
(www.blurb.com) to publish her
book, "Do Mallet the Suitcase,"
a collection of spam e-mail ar-
ranged as haiku.
Among them: "Dude, get all
U need/And dragonhead by
reckon/She will love you more,"
and "Just what all men need/
C'Mon Baby, Light My Fire/
Chat and meet women."
Avoiding traditional pub-
lishing was a plus for Fuller, 48,
a life coach in Menlo Park, Cali-
"There was a process that
I was sort of unwilling to get
engaged in when there was
something that could so imme-
diately deliver a quality book,"
she said.
Blurb requires customers to
download its software, which
then lets them lay out text and
photos. Then they send the
specifications to the company,
which prints the books in either
hardcover Rates start at $18.95
for one small softcover. Bulk-
order discounts start at 10 cop-
ies, company founder Eileen
Gittnins said.
"If you order 10 copies,
you get a 10 percent discount,
100 copies you get a 15 percent

discount," she said. "Over 200,
we encourage you to give us a
Blurb also allows authors to
sell their works on its in-house
bookstore, printing copies as
new orders come in, and to
charge a markup so they can
make a profit. The company
sends out a check every time an
author earns $25 or more.

Many people use Blurb for
personal projects as well.
Michelle Flaherty and her hus-
band Peter received a book made
by their daughters with photos
of Haunted Acre Woods, the
large-scale Halloween display
they mount each year at their
home in East Falmouth, Massa-
"It was the first Christmas
gift in I don't know how many
years that actually made me
cry," she said. "It was so origi-
nal, so different."
While a budding novelist
could use Blurb, the company
specializes in photo layouts
with glossy paper and the look
of a "coffee-table" book.
Some writers looking to
print more literary works are
visiting Lulu (www.lulu.com).
Lulu, founded by Bob
Young, co-founder of software
company Red Hat Inc., allows
customers to publish school
yearbooks, artwork, calendars
and many other things but
especially books. Lulu recoups
expenses and takes a 20 percent
cut of the profit on a book sale.

LONDON, England (Reuters) Hundreds of naked cy-

Vitamin D cuts cancer risk in women


The Fever' burns

indignantly over life's

many injustices

Sometimes a name is all it
takes. Viewers will tune in to
see HBO's The Fever
Wednesday, June 13, because
Vanessa Redgrave ('Julia')
stars. Redgrave is such a glo-
rious actress, many of us
would see her name and plan
to watch her in anything.
Yet before tuning in, people
should know what awaits them.
Co-written and directed by
her son. Carlo Nero. The Fever
is an odd. artsy film that's a dia-
tribe on the hideously uneven
distribution of wealth in society.
The movie, based on Wallace
Shawn's play, focuses on a cul-
tured European (Redgrave), who
has a lovely home and attends
concerts, the ballet and galleries.
She is beautiful, well dressed
and comfortable.
Her character is never
named, so she is every woman.
Though her home shots were
done in London, all that is clear
is that she's a sophisticated
woman who appreciates the
fine arts. She could be in any
city. She has an office, but her
career is never identified.
In essence, she is all of us,
and by not naming her, her city
or her livelihood, we are sup-
posed to relate to her that much
more easily.
Waiting at a bus stop one
day, she meets a friendly
woman whose earrings she ad-
mires. The earrings are from an
impoverished country, and as
the younger woman boards the
bus, she presses the jewellery
into Redgrave's hands.
Soon, Redgrave decides to
visit this war-tom country. And
it is there, in a probably once
lovely, now somewhat dilapi-
dated hotel, that the movie un-
folds. Much of it takes place in

A survey of more than 1,000
men in India has concluded

than half of the men measured

than international standards for
It has led to a call for condoms
of mixed sizes to be made more
widely available in India.
The two-year study was
carried out by the Indian Coun-
cil of Medical Research.
Over 1,200 volunteers from
the length and breadth of the
country had their penises mea-
sured precisely. down to the last

the bathroom, as Redgrave's
character becomes quite ill.
Through this night, during
which she has a fever hence
the title she examines her life.
It is not a bad life. Rather,
many people would be happy
to live it. It does, though, beg
the question of whether being
healthy, loved, educated and
employed is enough. Is it
enough when babies starve and
education is but an unrealised
dream for millions?
As she examines her life in
flashbacks, her childhood is rep-
resented in animation, while
other stages of her life are seen
in re-enactments. Sometimes she
speaks directly to the camera.
The mix of styles gives this
an art-house cinema feel.
Through it all, Redgrave is
never anything short of brilliant.
The film, however, should come
with a sledgehammer with which
to hit the audience over the head,
its intentions are that obvious..
This is a film that deeply
wants its audience to react.
"I hope they will be think-
ing we are all in on this and
whatever our circumstances, we
can help," Redgrave says.
"People are not sure what they
can do to help. They are human
beings. They think if they can
help, they would."
The star and director, inde-
pendently, say the film ideally
will encourage people to act.
Brief appearances by Angelina
Jolie, as a woman with a sad life,
and Michael Moore, as a jour-
nalist, are sliced into the film.
If nothing else, this film is
a labour of love that took Nero
six years to make. Redgrave had
performed the play to a 90-seat
theatre in London; and Shawn

had also performed it, of course
playing the lead as a man. The
main message, though, that the
world is in desperate need of
help, remains the same.
Personal journey
"Through this woman's
very personal journey, I hope
perhaps they see a little bit of
themselves whether they be like
her middle-aged, white, West-
ern consumers enjoying all the
comforts this system has to of-
fer, and often at the expense of

of our connectiveness to so

would be a great thing. And how
people respond to that, I don't

some people to re-evaluate their
lives. This woman in the film

quences for so many other
As the woman reflects on
her life, she recalls how, as a
child, she was told to not play

scene early for the division be-
tween good (rich) and bad

"It was wonderful to be
able to direct her," Nero says.
"Especially in a piece like this,

she gives herself truly, utterly
and unconditionally to the role.

a gift. I knew she cared so much
about this piece and its success.
I felt we could explore it in

The conclusion of all this
scientific endeavour is that
about 60% of Indian men have
penises which are between three
and five centimetres shorter
than international standards
used in condom manufacture.
Doctor Chander Puri, a spe-
cialist in reproductive health at the
Indian Council of Medical Re-
search, told the BBC there was an
obvious need in India for custom-
made condoms, as most of those
currently on sale ate too large.
The issue is serious because
about one in every five times a
condom is used in India it either
falls off or tears; an extremely
high failure rate.
And the CGu.i!try already
has the highest number of HIV
infections of any nation.
Mr Puri said that since In-
dians would be embarrassed

pensing different sizes all
around the country,
"Smaller condoms are on
sale in India. But there is a lack
of awareness that different
sizes are available. There is
anxiety talking about the issue.
And normally one feels shy to
go to a chemist's shop and ask
for a smaller size condom."
But Indian men need not
be concerned about measuring
up internationally according to
Sunil Mehra, the former editor
of the Indian version of the
men's magazine Maxim.
"It's not size, it's what
you do with it that matters,"
he said.
"From our population, the

Condoms 'too big

for Indian men

And such persons ilsi hold
the view that men cannot cook.
This is a myth of course,
and the Guyana diplomatic
corps set out to prove this yes-
terday when they converged on
the lawns at Red House yester-
day and whipped up some tasty
and stylish culinary delights.
Our own Prime Minister
Samuel Hinds was there as well,
and we hear tell that a good time
was had by all.
"Who says men cannot
cook" was the theme for the
Ambassadors' cook out orga-
nized by the Diplomatic
Spouses Association.
The cooks came straight out
of a diplomatic Who's Who, in-
cluding envoys from America,
China, England, India, Russia,
and Canada.
Organiser of the event Mrs.
Branka Court said this year's
event was every bit as success-
ful as previous cook outs.
The cook out is one of the
Diplomatic Spouse Association's
(DPA) charitable fund raisers.
The money raised at the event
will be donated to charitable
organizations in Guyana.
There were six food booths,
including the Prime Minister's,

culiar to the countries repre-
sented by the resident ambassa-

The dishes in his booth yes-
terday were prepared by him.

(Daily Nation) EVEN before the tents have opened, artistes
are defending what may be considered as risque songs in the
face of a call for a wholesome Crop-Over.
Anderson Blood Armstrong. Timmy. Li'l Rick and others have
claimed their compositions are nothing more than attempts to bring
wit and humour back to the festival; but the radio call-in
programmes are abuzz with criticism.
Blood told the SATURDAY SUN that She Push He was "not
intended to be vulgar" but was about village life where a man's
girlfriend accuses him of cheating and starts pushing him.
"We don't say in Barbados 'she pushed him'," he said.
Li'l Rick said his popular party song Conch was just a com-
mentary about a man eating the tasty shellfish.
"It's as clean as ever." he said. noting the fun element was
returning as evidenced by the success of Black Pawn's Fuh Cup
sung by Malik in the Pic-O-De-Crop final.
Timmy. meanwhile, said of his popular Sauce that the "story"
was about "a man asking a woman what she is cooking that smells
so goodd.
His tent manager. Peter Boyce of Bacchanal Time, dismissed
the debate by saying "vulgarity is in the ear of the beholder".
David Davis, who wrote Furniture (known as "the Wicker
Song") for Basil Yarde Jr. agreed. saying: \\ h..l ,. r your inten-
tions are, people can always skew it."

Rwanda scraps the

death penalty
RWANDA'S parliament has voted to abolish the death pen-
alty, with the ban to take effect at.the end of July.
The move will enable countries ihat are holding genocide
suspects, but which object to capital punishment, to extradite
them to Rwanda.
But there has been strong opposition to the scrapping of
the death penalty from many survivors of the genocide.
Some 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu moderates were slaughtered
during the country's 100-day genocide in 1994.
Most of the high-profile genocide cases have been or are
being tried at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda
(ICTR) in Tanzania.
But frustrated at its slow process, Rwanda wants suspects
transferred to face trail at horne.
The BBC's Geoffrey Mutagoma in the capital, Kigali, says
96% of the MPs voted to abolish the death penalty.
Under the new law, Rwanda's 800 death-row prisoners will
automatically have their sentences changed to life in jail.
Rwanda last implemented the death penalty in 1998 when
22 people found guilty of genocide crimes were put before a
firing squad.
Our reporter says it provoked international criticism and
petitions from human rights bodies to suspend the punishment
with an act of clemency.
He says it is hoped the new legislation will encourage the
tmnsfcr of genocide suspects to Rwandancourts.

U.S. vows to

help Latin America
fight drug gangs

CUERNAVACA, Mexico (Reuters) The United States will
stand by Latin American governments in their battle
against powerful drug cartels, U.S. Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales vowed on Friday.
Speaking after a two-day meeting with attorneys general
from Mexico, Colombia and the countries of Central America,
Gonzales said Washington would work with them to combat
the smuggling cartels whose fight for territory, particularly in
Mexico, has led to a surge in killings.
"The United States stands with all of ot r neighbours in our
joint fight against violent gangs." Gonzales told reporters in
Mexico. "'For all of our citizens we must win this fight and Il
believe that working together as friends, as partners, we will."
Turf wars between Mexico's Gulf Cartel and an alliance of
tralfickers from the northwestern stale of Sinaloa as well as other
gangs killed some 2.000 people last year. More than 900 people
Mexican PrCsident Felipe CAlderon has sent thousands of
troops to quell the vi wolene, so Ifr v Teitoll l mch atuccesl ili

help Guatemala in particular has become a major transit point
lotr .S.-bound cocaine and other drugs, and its government is
struggling to fight off the corrupting influence of the drug cartels.
Mexico says llth Unito d kn'.les is parlwi to blam for hc
drug violence because most of the guns the traffickers use are
smuggled into Mexico from its northern neighbour. Gonzall as other

He said much of the debate at the meeting centered on how\

(LOS ANGELES) The third
roll of the dice for George
Clooney, Brad Pitt. Matt
Damon and their merry
band of casino crooks is an
almost certain winner for its
makers, a break-even deal
at best for audiences.
Glittery as a Vegas Strip
stage revue, smooth and
smarmy as a high-roller on the
lucky streak of his life. Ocean's
Thirteen wins back some of
the Ocean's Eleven charm tlih

froll the s ial: ciitel onculcil \ ic-
tory for the rascally good guN s
planning a Robin Hood-style
heist, utter defeat and humilia-
tion for the villain (Al Pacino).
Oh. and also obvious from
the get-go: a big summer hit for
distributor Warner Bros..
which pretty much had a sure
bet just by rounding up its su-
perstar cast (minus Julia Rob-
irts) and director Steven
Soderbergh one more time.
With jazzy, funky music
reminiscent of movie scores of
the 1960s. the era that
spawned Frank Sinatra's origi-
nal Ocean's Eleven. the new
movie dashes through a pro-
logue meant to establish a fresh
bond with our mercenary gan
and the honour-among-lhieCVes
motive for their latest caper.
Vegas mogul Reuben
Tishkoff (Elliott Gould). the
money man of the Ocean's
Eleven crew, is bilked out of
his half-interest in a swanky
new casino and hotel being
opened by cut-throat Willy
Bank (Pacino). who egotisti-
cally names his joint The Bank.
Stressed into a heart at-
tack. Reuben lies listless, wait-
ing to die. prompting Danny
Ocean (Clooney) and Rusty
Ryan (Pitt) to call out the
troops for a revenge job that
will break The Bank and its
owner on opening night.
The absence of Roberts.
who co-starred in the first two
flicks, is dismissed with an off-
hand remark by Danny. while
()cean's l\el\ e co-star Catherine
Zeta-Jones is also a ino-sho\w.

subplots that muddy the works
without raising the draimaIlic
stakes of Ocean's Thirteen.

Another of those meandering
subplots is Affleck and Caann's
labour battle on behalf of work-

that makes casino dice. Another
is Cheadle's brief impersonation

of an Evil Knievel-type motor-

David Paymer's presence as a

with knowing you're Holly-

where you and yours always

Pietersen's freak dismissal good sign for England's bowlers

By Richard Sydenham

(Reuters) Kevin Pietersen
said his freak dismissal
against West Indies in the
third Test yesterday was a
good sign for England's
Pietersen. chasing his third
century in as many tests. was
out hit wicket for 68 on the
third day as England piled up
313 in their second innings to
set the visitors an unlikely vic-
tory target of 455.
"I've never seen anyone get
out like that," Pietersen told re-
porters. "It was really bizarre.
freakish. I don't know what

"It was weird but if a ball
bounces like that and flies
through the top it's a really
good sign for our bowlers and
for England to try and wrap
up a series victory tomorrow."
Pietersen. attempting to
hook a shonr ball Iroml seamner

fall on to the stumps after be-
ing struck on the head.
The England batsman said

"It's probably time for a
change." said Pietersen. "It-does
shake you up a bit when you
get hit on the head at 80-mph.
it's not fun. It doesn't happen

to nmin> people doing a job."
Pietersen said he was irri-
tated by the bowler's celebri--
tion as Bravo ran towards ithe
boundary but added he \would
not hold any grudges.
"They celebrate like West
Indians do, they really enjoy
their wickets and fair do's to
them because they've run in and
tried really hard and got their
rewards, especially that (Darren)
Sammy. He did a fantastic job,"
said the world's third-ranked
Medium-pacer Sammy
picked up seven for 66 in the
second innings.
Pietersen was also irritated

at missing out on a.nothcr cen-
".It is definitely some-
thing I am frustrated with."
he said. "I didn't think I was
going to get rneself out other
than the w a\ 1 did get out.
"Winning the series is the
most important thing but driv-
ing to the ground this morning 1
found out I a\ eraiged 14.4 in all
cricket in seven \ears at this

of mi favourite grounds.
"Thank goodness there's
no Ashes Test (here) in

Samuels accuses

(from page 31)
Dear Mr. Findlay,
I am writing to you because I want to bring to your atten-
tion a situation which I find myself in and which I feel is
affecting my cricket.
At our first net session since I arrived in England I was
told by coach David Moore to start the fielding session then
I was asked to bowl in the nets which I happily did.
However I was not given an opportunity to bat until after
all the other batsmen and bowlers batted. At this time the
net bowlers were very tired and unable to bowl properly
and you would understand that since I only recently ar-
rived it is important for me to get an equal chance to ac-
climatize and prepare myself for the test match if given
the opportunity.
I am writing to you because this is not the first time this
has happe iid ^C ".: UInder Bennett King, in Malaysia and
India in 2006 and I was faced with the same suuauu .. ..
only changed in India after I complained about it in a team
meeting and Mr. Clive Lloyd intervened.
But now it is continuing again under Bennett King's as-
sistant coach David Moore who has taken over. I feel I am
being deliberately set aside and I am not pleased with this
since it is happening too often.
I would appreciate if you would kindly address this mat-
ter in order to ensure that I am treated with some amount
of equality especially since I have been faced with many
challenges during my career.
I am forced to write to you also because for too long I have
kept quiet on several things, such as this, which have af-
fected me in the past. I think it is important for me to
bring this to your attention so that you can.address it and
help to ensure that there are no distractions.

urgent answers.
The sources told the CMC Sports Wire. who first broke
the story on Wednesday of Gayle's rejection, that the selec-
tors made it clear they intend to resign if the Ken Gordon
administration did not provide justifiable reasons for the ac-
tion taken by the executive at a meeting last Sunday in Port-
of-Spain after the squad was selected the previous day in
Gayle, a 27-year-old batting all-rounder and veteran of 168
Internationals, got the favour of the selectors after appointed
captain Ramnaresh Sarwan was injured during the second Test
against England and ruled out of the rest of the tour.
Ganga. 28. is Gayle's Test opening partner, but has played only
35 ODIs in a chequered career, which started in 1999 with his last
ODI against Pakistan at Lahore in December.
Ganga was vice-captain for the Test series against England, but
he is now leading the side for the last two matches.
Not only was Gayle turned down as captain, but also two other
players whom the selectors named in key positions for the lim-
ited-overs matches against England beginning in the last week of
June, and the West Indies A-Team tour to Zimbabwe. starting at
month- end.
Wicketkeeper/batsman Denesh Ramdin was rejected as
Gayle's vice-captain, and Barbados captain and all-rounder
Ryan Hinds suffered a similar fate for the same position in
the A-Team.
Sources said the WICB executive felt that it was premature to
elevate Ramdin and gave the job to veteran middle order batsman
Shivnarine Chanderpaul. who was West Indies captain a couple
years ago.
Hinds was overlooked in preference to Narasingh
Deonarine as the second man to captain, Sylvester Joseph be-
cause of a disciplinary charge.
That charge, which is expected to lead to a two-match suspen-
sion at the start of the next West Indies first-class season in Octo-
ber. followed an ill-tempered match in the Carib Beer Final Chal-
lenge against Trinidad & Tobago in Pointe-a-Pierre in February. when
Barbados felt the\ were cheated by poor umpiring decisions.
While acknowledging that the WICB directors can reject
recommendations for a captain or vice-captain, the selectors
are apparently upset that the WICB Cricket committee had
no sav on the issues before the executive rushed to its deci-
sions on Sunday.
The sources further told the CMC Sports Wire that in a dra-
matic turn on Friday night, the WICB Cricket committee discussed
--......i, v nf a teleconference.
tile lllilttct I- .. .... ... ... r i:,.... l d'
The Cricket committee comprises Chairman vn ..- .,
Der\ck Murray. Andy Roberts. Desmond Haynes. Ian Bishop and
Courtney \Walsh. who recently replaced Michael Holding.
Holding resigned last August following a war of words with
Gordon and Lloyd after expressing unease with the way that
the committee formed by the WICB to take responsibility
for cricketing-related matters was not consulted over deci-
sions regarding the West Indies team selection for the tour of
Pakistan in November.
Sarwan was appointed the new captain last month following
the retirement from international cricket of batting great Brian Lara.
Sarwan injured his right shoulder while chasing a ball to the
boundary on the opening day of the second Test at Headingley.
Leeds. where West Indies lost by an innings and 283 runs their
heaviest ever Test defeat. '. .
Sarwan is now back home pursuing rehabilitation on the
joint in his *4,it sl-^'^,r.

Powell to run 200 metres in Oregon

By Gene Cherry

EUGENE, Oregon. (Reuters)
- Jamaican 100 metres world
record holder Asafa Powel
will be hoping to continue his
rehabilitation from a knee
injury when he competes in
the 200 metres at the
Prefontaine Classic grand
prix today.
"We wanted to get in a
couple of runs," Powell's agent.

Paul Dovle. told Reuters.
Whien Asafa had the injury
(tendonitis of the knee), he
missed three weeks training.
-He started building his
base again w ith longer runs and
was feeling stronger, so we de-
cided to run the 200."
Powell. who clocked 9.97
seconds at Belgrade, Serbia,
on May 29 in his first 100
metres race since picking up
the injury, also announced

nouncement it would extend its sponsorship of the Caribbean
Cup for another four years, Warner said governments were
leaving too much of the responsibility of football development
up to the corporate sector.
"Far too often, the governments of the region believe because
Digicel is now the proverbial fairy godfather, there is no role for
them 1to play." Warner said.
"Digicel didn't come to displace or remove the
government's [role], they came to complement, to assist and
therefore these governments must now put infrastructure in
place football stadiums, practice pitches, training camps and
so on that can help these countries to move forward.
"The input of Digicel is good, it will go quite well but the gov-
ernnents also have to come in and help."
Digicel, who has sponsored the Digicel Caribbean Cup since
2004. said it was throwing more money behind the venture as it
moved to extend its sponsorship of Ihe region's premier football
Iournlalentl to 2011.
Warner, who welcomed Digicel's sponsorship, said govern-
ments needed to understand the unique role of sports in the
Caribbean and the contribution it made to holistic develop-
He also dismissed the argument that money invested in sports
could be better spent in other areas.
"I think for people to make that argument is short-sighted be-
cause if they build stadia for sport, and playing fields and so on,
they may not have to build hospitals, they may not have to build
jails and so on because these playing fields and these stadia. they'
can then take the place and help to make the citizens healthy and
wealthy." Warner contended.
"Secondly, I want to make the point that the flags of the coun-
iries of the Caribbean will never be flown on the field of war. The
flags of the Caribbean countries will only be flown on the field of
sport., and for me, football.
"Therefore, what they (governments) should do, is to make
sure whatever money is spent in sport is spent prudently ...
and to make sure that in doing so, everybody of course ben-

post-game attention was cen-

The Cavaliers forward

post-game attention focused on
potential adjustments by James

stop them.
Yet Parker was every bit
as good as James was bad and
if the Cavaliers fail to adjust
to Parker's slashing drives to

be over in four games.
San Antonio forward and

third championship in the last
five years.

.Belgian wins third straight French Open title

By Pritha Sarkar

PARIS, (Reuters) An irre-
sistible Justine Henin carved
her name alongside the great
figures of claycourt tennis at
the French Open yesterday.
Th. Belgian dished out a
painful 6-1 6-2 lesson to Serbian
school student Ana Ivanovic to
become the first woman since
tennis turned professional in
1968 to win back-to-back
Roland Garros crowns without
dropping a set.
Henin scrutinised hand-
written notes during the
changeovers which reminded
her "You are the best" and in-
structed her to "get to the net".
Fittingly the world number
one swiped away a high volley
on match point to seal a hat-

World number one l'ederer. chasing the only erand slam
crown to elude him, knows exactly \\ hal he nuslt not do againsl
the world number two, and that is run out of steam after a great
start, like last year. when the Spaniard won 1-6 6-1 6-4 7-6.
"Last year I came out of the blocks very, very strong with



a great first set but after that, 1
couldn't handle Nadal," Federer said. "So I hope this year's go-
ing to be different."
The ultimate weapon on clay. the 21-year-old Nadal, can
wear down any opponent with his relentless groundstrokes and
will fight for every ball.
Federer, who masters every shot in the book, has what it
takes to trouble him. providing he is ready for a bruising battle
against the Spanish dynamo with the bulging biceps.
"Physically and mentally, I'm ready," Federer said.
The difference from last year is that the elegant Swiss has
beaten the explosive Spaniard on clay at last. in the Hamburg
final last month.
The 25-year-old Federer, who trails Nadal 5-1 on clay, now
knows he can beat Nadal on the slow surface and there is no
better time and place to do it again than the final Sunday on the
Roland Garros Centre Court.
"The only difference is that I know now that I have de-
feated Rafa on clay in Hamburg, so maybe that will help me
get on the right tracks", Federer hoped.
Having lost to Federer once does not mean Nadal. who
dreams of becoming the first man with three successive titles
here since Bjorn Borg in 1980, has become vulnerable.
The muscular Majorcan has advanced to the title match with-
out dropping a set, crushing everything in his path with merci-
less forehand winners to extend his 100 percent French Open
Now he could stop Federer from becoming the third player
after Don Budge and Rod Laver to hold all four grand slamin titles
at the same time.
As if to take some of the pressure off, Nadal suggested his
opponent was the slight favourite.
"He's the best player in the history of the game and I will
have to be at my very best". said the Spaniard. "That's the
only way you can beat Roger."
Federer realises lie has more to gain from what promises to
be a thrilling, tight contest.
By winning today. Nadal would confirm only that he is the
best claycourt player.
If Federer managed to prevent Nadal from lifting the
Musketeers' Cup again, he would establish himself as the
top player on any surface and, arguably. the greatest ever.

ended with the second-best -
figures by a West Indies
bowler on debut yesterday, as
Alastair Cook completed his
sixth Test hundred to helped
England set the visitors a
highly improbable, if not im-
possible task of scoring 455
to win the third Test.
Sammy, playing in his first
Test and the first St. Lucian tp
represent West Indies in a Test,
collected seven wickets for 66
runs from 21.3 overs, but Cook
countered with his second hun-
dred of the series a purpose-
ful 106 as the tourists dis-
missed England for 313 in their
second innings about half-hour
before the scheduled close at
Old Trafford.
Sammy's figures were
the second best by a debutant
for West Indies, after Alf Val-
entine took eight for 104 in
1950 at the same venue, and
allowed the visitors to bowl
England out for the second
straight time in the series.
This left West Indies need-
ing to bat out eight overs plus
the final two days to either
save or win the match.
But they suffered an imme-
diate setback, when Steve
Harmison had their captain;
Daren Ganga adjudged lbw for'
the fourth time in the series for
a duck in the second over to'
send the visitors to bed on 22
for one when stumps were
drawn on the third day.
Cook, whose previous
scores in the series have
been 105, 65, 42, and 60,
reached his landmark, when
he pulled Sammy through
mid-wicket for the last of his
10 boundaries.
He added a record 98 with
England captain Michael
Vaughan for the second wicket,
and put on 122 with Kevin
Pietersen for the third wicket in
two significant partnerships
that fortified England's position
in the match.
After Chris Gayle gained an

Ibw verdict to remove Cook in
the first half hour after tea to
leave England on 265 for four,
Sammy literally swung into ac-

Earlier, though Sammy
and the rest of bowlers had
worked tirelessly throughout
the morning period, the West
Indies' fielding was atrocious,
and they allowed England to
reach 136 for two at lunch.

ing was highlighted, when

When Pietersen came to the

an uncontrolled pull at a delivery

Hornets men's team win William

HORNETS Rugby Club
stormed off with the William
Blackman men's 15s title af-
ter convincingly defeating
Caribs Rugby Club 27-5 re-
cently at the National Park.
Troy Bascom gave the win-
ners the perfect start with a try and
with the inclusion of former West
Indian player Troy Arjoon who
scored the second try Hornets were
in command at 10-0 at halftime.
The second half of the game was
tilled with an excellent display of
talent by all players including those
juniors that are preparing to head
of in July for the U-20 NAWIRA
Elwin Chase who played
in England for a little time
and was out for just over a
year due to a knee injury re-
turned to the game to score
another try for Hornets on
the wing after some missed
tackles from the opposition.

was no good. Satesh Samaroo

Championship MVP, playing in
the full back position s Wiftly
stepped his way to Hornets 4th

try, conversion by Hinkson was
no good. Caribs made some
good efforts to score but all
were foiled by good defence
from Hornets and lack of sup-
port from the Carib players.


With good ball handling and
skilful playing Arjoon collected
a pass just about 10 meters from
the opposition try line to score
directly under the post and se-
cure Hornet's 5th try. The con-
version by R.Hinkson was good.
C. Butts of Caribs was able to
finally score a try with just ten
minutes left in the game due to

fumbles by the Hornets players.
The women 10 a-
side game had started with
the Carib women beating
Hornets in their first match
but last Saturday the Hor-
nets' women redeemed them-
selves with a 10 0 win. A
third game will determine
the female William
Blackman champs.
According to information
from the Guyana Rugby Football
Union (GRFU) no more club
matches will take place until later
this year as national training has
commenced. The national U-20
team will leave for the Cayman Is-

about discrimination at the

The Jamaican right-

stopped after he complained
to manager Clive Lloyd dur-

More recently, on his arrival
in England as the replacement

not given any batting practice in
the nets until after every other

had batted.

What is it: If you have a
history of blushing, or if your
face flushes after a glass of
wine, you may be in the first
stages of rosacea. In addition,
environmental pollutants, too
much sun and hormonal changes
can all trigger rosacea, which is
characterized by a red, uneven
complexion and broken veins.
This common condition is pre-
dominant in women and light

and blue or green eyes and ac-

aggravate the disorder, and
people with fragile, sensitive or
reactive skins are also prone to
How to treat it: Conven-
tional treatment is with oral
and topical antibiotics, while
tuneable dye laser treatment
is offered privately. Leading
dermatologist Dr Tim Cutler
comments: 'Redness, and ro-
sacea in particular, affects
thousands of people but
there are currently insuffi-
cient products available to
deal with the condition'.
Nutritional tips: Avoid
chocolate, cow's milk, sugars
and drinks that induce facial
flushing. Eat plenty of raw veg-
etables and fruit.
Supplements: Antioxi-
dants. essential fatty acids and

digestive enzymes.
Herbs: Echinacea.
What is it: Eczema. or der-
matitis, is a group of skin con-
ditions that affects all age
groups. In the UK, up to one-
fifth of children have eczema,
and about one in twelve adults.
In mild forms the skin is dry, hot
and itchy, while in more severe
forms, the skin can be broken,
raw and bleeding. Atopic eczema
is thought to be a hereditary and
genetically linked condition,
while other types of eczema are
caused by irritants such as
chemicals and detergents, aller-
gens such as nickel, and yeast
growths. In later years eczema
can be attributed to blood cir-
culatory problems in the legs.
How to treat it: Common

treatments include emollients.
topical and oral steroids, topi-
cal immunomodulators and an-
tihistamines. Switch to cotton
bedding and clothing, use non-
biological washing powder and
take steps to reduce the effect
of the house dust mite which is

What it is: Milia are com-
mon, keratin-filled spots that
usually appear around the eyes.
on the cheeks and on the eye-
lids in all ages. from infants to
adults. Primary milia are be-
lieved to arise in sebaceous
glands that are not fully devel-
oped, and are more common in
infants but can occur in children
and adults. Secondary milia are
seen in a number of blistering
disorders and following derm-
abrasion due to disruption of
the sweat duct.
How to treat it: Milia
should never be attacked with
pins or fingernails as there's a
danger of infection and scarring.
To treat them yourself, hold a
comfortably hot, wet facecloth
over the skin for a few minutes,
to loosen and remove dead skin
cells. Use an exfoliating facial
wash containing salicylic acid to
remove the top layer of skin,
which will enable the cysts to
fall out.
What is it: Affecting ap-
proximately three per cent of
the Western population, psoria-
sis is a not-yet curable disease.
It begins deep in the immune
system but is revealed by a dra-
matically increased number of
skin cells in the top layers of the
skin. Normal skin cells mature
in 28 to 30 days and then are
shed from the skin's surface.
With psoriasis, a malfunction in
the immune system causes skin

cells to reecriciate much more
quickly% e\er\ three to four
da\ s. As the ,kin cells accumu-
late. they form scaly areas of
How to treat it: Topical
steroids, topical coal tar prepa-
rations. occlusion therapy
(which involves covering the
skin with an airtight, waterproof
wrapping of mild to moderate
steroids or moisturisers), and
wet-wrap bandaging are typical
psoriasis treatments. In the pri-
vate sector, the XTRAC FDA-
approved Excimer laser system
offers an 80 per cent chance of
successfully treating and sus-
taining recovery from the con-
dition. Dead Sea minerals are
known to relieve eczema and
psoriasis-related irritation and
itching; try the Malki Dead Sea
range which includes bath salts,
mineral soap and black mud
mask soap. Visit
Nutritional tips: Lots of
oily fish, fresh fruit and veg-
etables, low sugar, low fat,
dairy free. Avoid alcohol, greasy
foods, spicy foods, refined car-
bohydrates, additives, pro-
cessed foods, caffeine and soft
Supplements: Essential
fatty acids.

What is it: Uneven pigmen-
tation can be caused by environ-
mental stress, excessive UV ex-
posure, the production of excess
melanin which clumps together
in cells, or a continued increase
in melanin production and a
slowing down in melanin dis-
persion, which highlights the

difference between pigmented
and normal skin area... v, ih the
.skin appearing uneven. In con-
trast. vitiligo is a disorder in
\ which patches of white skin ap-
pear on various parts of Ihe
body. The skin is white because
the cells responsible for pro-
ducing brown pigment have dis-
appeared. There are more than
half a million vitiligo sufferers in
the UK, with 50 per cent of
cases appearing before the age
of 20.
How to treat it: Steroid
creams and PUVA a combi-
nation of medication
(psoralens) and UVA treat-
ment are the conventional
treatment methods.

What is it: Dilated capillar-
ies are caused by climate, stimu-
lants, incorrect products, smok-
ing and can also be hereditary.
When sensitive skin is irritated.
by temperature changes, spicy
food, alcohol etc, the capillary
veins dilate all over the face and
neck. And because sensitive
skins also tend to be especially
fine and transparent, redness is
particularly visible.
How to treat it: 'Protect
the skin from harsh condi-
tions such as wind, sun and
hot temperatures, and cut
back on hot drinks, smoking,
alcohol and spicy foods. Use
products rich in rose to help
strengthen the weakened cap-
illary walls.
Nutritional tips: Low salt,
low fat, high fibre, bilberries,
Supplements: Large doses
of vitamin C and vitamin E.

The cuddly little primate whose looks have got it into trouble

By Richard Black
Environment correspondent,
BBC News website, The
Some pictures may speak a
thousand words, but this
speaks just two: "cuddle me!"
The slow loris, native to
large swathes of Asia, must be
one of the most appealing crea-
tures on the planet.
"The pet shops advertise
them, and they're very popular
to Japanese ladies," says
Masayuki Sakamoto from the
Japan Wildlife Conservation So-
"They're easy to keep,
they don't cry, they're small,
and just very cute."
In Japan, a slow loris will
cost you between $1,500 and
$4,500: but that conceals the
real cost of the pet trade, mea-
sured in ripped fingers, bloody
mouths, and babies unable to
clean up their own defecation.

"They'll pull out its teeth
so the vendor can say it's a
baby." recounts Anna Nekaris,
a loris specialist based at Oxford
Brookes University in the UK.
"They're kept in wire
cages: and because of the spe-
cial network of blood vessels
they have, when they're pulled
out of the cages it cuts their
hands and feet."
Babies separated from their
parents are unable to clean
themselves. Their fur becomes
caked with urine, faeces and oily
skin secretions; a large propor-
tion (between 30% and 90%) die
in transit.
The Cambodian government
has just pushed through a ban
on the international trade in the
slow loris; in technical terms,
uplisting these primates from
Appendix 2 to Appendix 1
within the Convention on Inter-
national Trade in .Endangered
Species (CITES).
The bid sailed through the

CITES meeting by consensus.
But not all conservation groups
backed it. the implication being
that sentiment may be obstruct-
ing rational analysis of the prob-
It used to be assumed that
the slow loris was a single spe-
cies. its range stretching from
northern India down through
Burma. Thailand, and peninsu-
lar Malaysia, across into Viet-
nam. Cambodia and Laos and
into the islands of Indonesia and
the Philippines.
Dr Nekaris is one of the re-
searchers who have repainted
the loris picture, and five spe-
cies are now recognized, though
that may still be an underesti-
The scale of the threat is
also unclear. Population esti-
mates are often based on small
surveys, and the official Red
List of Threatened Species notes

a lack of data from many areas,

Wildlife trade experts work
on the basis that about 10% of
shipments are found, but that
might be an underestimate in the
case of the slow loris, whose
survival instinct is to curl up
and do nothing, making them
easy to hide in a suitcase.
The animals are also traded
to the Middle East. Europe,
China and the US: even so, trade
may not be the biggest issue.
"The species are in interna-
tional trade. but current informa-
tion indicates that the extent of
that trade is relatively limited
and its impact likely to be in-
significant compared with other
factors." notes the expert as-
sessmlent from the World Con-
servation Union (IUCN) pre-
pared for the CITES meeting.
IUCN suggests that habitat
loss may be a more important
factor inll their decline.
But this sober assessment
did not find favour with CITES
delegates. The brief debate ac-
knowledged the reality of ongo-
ing forest destruction in south-

east Asia. but nobody spoke
against Cambodia's resolution.
Perhaps the loris' emotional
appeal won the day.

g -acurq of Tecnolog4, Univesity of (rCana

RECENTLY, a woman in her mid thirties sought my assistance for a problem which she
said several doctors (physicians) had attempted to treat but to no avail.
She complained of pain on swallowing which radiated from the back of her mouth to the ears. I
asked her if she should suffer
from a gynecological ailment l s
With a surprised look on he Dentist Advises
her face she promptly replied -i |:l i|t |l g I
in the negative. I enquired
why then if she had a dental
problem she consulted a medical doctor. This is a typical example that is often seen whereby
persons are confused as to who they should consult first when it comes to diseases involving the
face, throat or neck.
The incident influenced me to deal with the problem of pain experienced in the face and throat
which has no direct relation to the teeth.
At numerous medical outpatient clinics in hospitals across the continents of North America
and Europe, patients whose primary complaint is orofacial pain and chronic headache are rou-
tinely referred to the dentist.
One reason for this is because the first step in the differential diagnosis of a disease is
to eliminate by Systems. Dentistry comes fundamentally under the Alimentary System
and many neurologic (nerve), myogenic (muscle) and psychogenic pain states may mani-
fest from abnormalities of the masticatory apparatus. Besides, part of the dentist's (espe-
cially the maxillo-facial surgeon) expertise involves diseases of the head and neck.
Apart from cancer, facial pain is usually caused by either bursitis, cranial nerve, neuralgia or
myofacial pain dysfunction syndrome (MPDS).
Today I will examine the condition know as bursitis. Generally the patient describes the initial
pain as a pricking or burning sensation of the soft palate, similar to a needle prick. Eventually the
whole mouth and throat becomes tender. The pain also radiates to the ears. There may be a history
of the symptoms being experienced intermittently during the course of the previous one to two
years. I
No abnormal change in the lining of the mouth is observed. The patient complains of not being
able to swallow fluids. The pain often becomes worst at the end of the day.
Perhaps the most significant symptom of bursitis is the presence of "trigger zones" located
one inch below the lobes of the ears. Whenever moderate pressure is applied here, pain is felt on
the spot as well as in the ears.
Let us look at what really is bursitis, what causes it and its treatment. A bursa is a device for
eliminating friction whenever a muscle or tendon is liable to rub on another muscle, tendon or
bone. It consists of a flattered sack, and its walls are separated by a capillary film of fluid, which
acts as a lubricant that enables its walls to slide freely over each other.
The mechanical functioning of the bursa renders it particularly susceptible to traumatic injury,
which is followed by inflammatory and enlargement. The muscle whose primary function is to
open the Eustachian tube has the bursa which causes the problem.
The Eustachian tube is a passage that communicates the throat to the ear. Minor infection or
trauma may cause an increase in the quantity of bursa fluid, leading to enlargement of the bursa.
This may result in pain and limitation of movement. I
The causes of bursitis include traumatic injury while swallowing a large bolus of food, yawn-
ing. overextended dentures and fellatio (oral sex on a male).
Treatment of the condition consists of an infection of one milliliter (ml. or cc.) of dex-
amethasone (Decadron) 4 mg/nil into each area of tenderness that corresponds to the ha-
mular notch (below ear lobe). The symptoms will disappear completely in a few days.

say that Counsel for the re-
spondent Corporation has
submitted in reply that in so
far as its statutory functions,
duties and power were of a
public nature, the respondent
Corporation would have
been amenable to public law
rights and remedies.
However, Counsel for the
respondent Corporation has
submitted that the relationship
of the Respondent Corporation
with its employees was one of
master and servant simpliciter
and was therefore governed by
the private law of contract and
did not attract public law rights
and remedies.
The Justice of Appeal
went on to state that Counsel
on both sides seem to have
agreed that the respondent
Corporation was a public
authority and a public
corporation for the purpose of
the Public Corporations Act,
Chapter 19:05, and later for
the purposes of the Public
Corporations Act, 1988 which
repealed and replaced the
former Act.

He noted that the respon-
dent Corporation was estab-
lished as a statutory body un-
der section 3 (1) of the Electric-
ity Act, Chapter 56:01 and as a
body Corporate under section
3 (2) of the said Act Under
Section 5 (1) (a) (11) of the
Public Corporations Act, Chap-
ter 19:o5, it was the function
of the Guyana State Corpora-
tion to exercise supervision and
control over public corporations

By Section 71 (1) of the
Public Corporations Act 1988,
the Public Corporations Act,
Chapter 56:01, was repealed
and. by section 71 (3) of the
said Act of 1988, notwithstand-
ing the said appeal, every ex-
isting corporation continued to
function as if it was a public
corporation established under
section 3 (1).
Therefore, the Public Cor-
porations Act applied to the
Guyana Electricity Corporation
as of the said Corporation was
a public corporation established
under section 3 (1). I therefore

share the view of counsel on
both sides that the respondent
Corporation was a public Cor-
poration to which the public
Corporations Acts applied con-
Justice of Appeal Chang
went on to say that the interest
of the public is not to be
equated with an interest in pub-
lic law and the employment
must be underpinned by a statu-
tory restriction for its protection
in order to attract a public law

stant case, the appellant was

ment position with effect from

the disciplinary procedure
for junior management con-
tained in the memorandum
and which involved the prin-
ciples of natural justice in
substance) formed part of the
conditions of service of the
appellant even though the
memorandum was dated 5th
June 1985 and the appel-
lant was appointed to a jun-
ior management position
with effect from 1st
March 1989.
In fact, Counsel who ap-
peared for the appellant seemed
to have accepted that negative
position, Chang said. It was
pointed out that the Guyana
Electricity Corporation as a
public corporation was man-
dated by section 9 (1) of the
Public Corporations Act .
Justice of Appeal Chang
further explained. "This is a
Junior Management position
which thus means that you will
be subject to the conditions of
service as agreed upon between
the Management and the Public
Service Union".
He added "There was no
evidence that the disciplinary
procedure for Junior Manag-
ers contained in the memo-
randum was agreed upon be-
tween the Management of
the respondent Corporation
and the Guyana Public Ser-
vice Union. In fact, Counsel

who appeared for the appel-
lant in the High Court seems
to have accepted that the said
disciplinary procedure was
not part of any collective
agreement. It might have
been but this was not
claimed nor proved".
Chang also said that since
the issue was really whether
the 'evidence' in the possession
of the respondent Corporation
was sufficient to warrant sum-
mary dismissal, the Court was
not powerless to answer lie
question as a matter of law.
According to him on a
review of the evidence in the
possession of the respondent
Corporation at the time of
decision to summarilI
dismiss him. there was
credible evidence to support
the conclusion that it was the
appellant who had converted
Williams' money to his, own
use and benefit.
On the basis of such "evi-
dence". which, to the respon-
dent Corporation, must have
pointed in the direction of the
appellant with an unerring
aim, the decision of the re-
spondent Corporation to
summarily dismiss the appel-
lant cannot be faulted as
wrongful, the Justice of Ap-
peal asserted.
"I would accordingly
dismiss this appeal and af-
firm the decision of the
court below", Chang de-

fans. at least.
Cinemas were the first public places of entertainment in British
Guiana/Guyana which prepared Guyanese to participate and
compete in the modern lifestyle of today's world.
Going to Kitty's Hollywood cinema as a child made me
recognize and appreciate the human values shared between a simple
local Guyanese lifestyle, and the international aspects of film stories
at the cinema.
I remember at the corner of Barr and Alexander Streets,
opposite the Market, stood two identical large beautiful
examples of local wooden architecture, the Richards Drug
Store/house, and a Chinese Rum Shop/house, giving the
village that uniquely designed dignified cultural look it once
had, in contrast to the haphazard, depressed, and rowdy
atmosphere that corner offers today.

This humble man, as Guyanese as you can get, was well
aware that the cinema provided most of his business and often he
too referred with interest to certain films showing on specific days.
Like the channa vendor, I realized attending the cinema involved
me in a beneficial social relationship between my local environment
and aspects of the outer world.
Later when I experience the benefits of TV it was mainly its
vital aspects of local and international news, advertisements, and
documentaries. This TV experience though important is vastly
different from the human atmosphere going to the cinema provides.
In an important essay titled 'Leaving The Movie Theater' the famous
French critic Roland Barthes refers to the importance of darkness
in the cinema which provides the fascination with films, whereas

on TV at home there is no mood of fascination, because our home
space is familiar, filled with furniture and objects we know well
and see daily.
In the anonymous public atmosphere of cinemas,
fascination prevails before and during the film. This has a
healing, hypnotic effect on us. In the darkness of the cinema
the audience is there to share the pleasures of its relaxed social

Satyajit Ray's "The Chess

Players"for CLASSIC


THE National Gallery features The Chess Players (1977). by acclaimed Indian filmmaker
Satyajit Ray, in their "Classic Tuesdays" programme this Tuesday.
Over 100 years after the historical event took place, Ray depicts the story of the annex-
ation of one of the last princely states of India by the British with a sharp-eyed delineation of
both Indian and British players: the indolence of the chess-obsessed aristocrats who are hardly
interested in the British takeover of their state, their
poet-king steeped in culture, and the British, in the
form of Sir Richard Attenborough's Resident of his
government's East India Company, whose scruples
cause him discomfort even as he is obliged to break
a treaty signed only ten years earlier in carrying out
the claim to the state of Awadh (Oudh).
Notable too is the character of Captain Weston.
the Resident's Urdu-speaking liaison officer with a
genuine appreciation of North Indian culture. The
film also features leading Indian classical actors in-
eluding Saeed Jaffrey as Mir, one of the chess play-
ers. and Victor Banerjee as the king's prime minister.

Caribbean Corals in Danger

of Extinction Climate Change, Warmer

Waters Cited as Leading Cause

(Conservation International/
IUCN) Caribbean coral
species are dying off,
indicating dramatic shifts in
the ecological balance under
the sea, a new scientific study
of Caribbean marine life
The study found that 10
percent of the Caribbean's 62
e - "S

reef-building corals were under
threat, including staghorn and
elkhorn corals. These used to be
the most prominent species but
are now candidates to be listed
as Critically Endangered on the
IUCN Red List of Threatened
"One of the Atlantic Ocean's
most beautiful marine habitats no

longer exists in many places
because of dramatic increases in
coral diseases, mostly caused by
climate change and warmer
waters," said Dr. Michael L.
Smith, director of the Caribbean
Biodiversity Initiative at
Conservation International.
A gathering of 23 scientists
in Dominica in March 2007

analyzed data on Western
Tropical Atlantic corals,
seagrasses, mangroves and algae,
which are fundamental
components of marine
ecosystems providing food and
shelter for numerous other
organisms and local
communities. The study was
funded in part by the Royal

Caribbean Cruises' Ocean Fund.
This was the first in a series of
Global Marine Species
Assessments (GMSA) of key
marine primary-producers on a
global scale. The GMSA is
headquartered at Old Dominion
University in Norfolk, Virginia,
USA, and is a partnership between
Conservation International (CI)
and the World Conservain Un im
It aims to dramatically
increase the number of marine
species assessed under the
rigorous criteria of the IUCN
Red List of Threatened Species
to provide up-to-date
information for marine policy
and conservation efforts.
After a final review, the
species assessed during the
Dominica workshop will be
added to the 2008 IUCN Red
"Coral reefs support some
of the richest areas of
biodiversity in the world.
When the coral reefs
disappear, so will many other
species which rely on reefs for
shelter, reproduction and
foraging," said Dr. Suzanne
Livingstone, GMSA program
The threats to corals and
other marine species include
coastal pollution and human
development; increased
sedimentation in run-off water:
thermal stress and heightened
severity of hurricanes from
climate change; and shifts in
species dynamics due to over-
fishing, according to the study.
Scientists explained that the

development since the
colonization of the Americas.
Next to corals, mangroves
appear to be the hardest hit.
Mangrove cover in the region
has declined by 42% over the
past 25 years, with two of the
eight mangrove species now
considered Vulnerable to
extinction and two more in
Near Threatened status.
"Mangroves protect
shorelines, shelter fish, and
filter pollution," said Aaron
Ellison of Harvard University.
"The Caribbean was blessed
with an abundance of these
useful plants, but the
consensus of this workshop is
that mangroves are in trouble
everywhere and need to be
protected and restored," he
Mangrove forests are being
cut down to make way for
coastal housing, tourism, and
aquaculture development. Beds
of sea-grasses in shallow coastal
waters, like mangroves, provide
a vital nursery habitat for fish,
including many commercially
important species and are
subject to similar threats. They
are in equal need of protection
to safeguard the wealth of
marine life they support.
Unlike corals, seagrasses
and mangroves, Caribbean
algae appear to be surviving
well and perhaps are taking
advantage of the corals'
demise. Algae thrive on dead
or dying coral reefs and can
overgrow and smother newly
settled corals. In addition, the
fishes that feed on algae are
being overexploited and their
reduced populations enable
algae to form dense growths
that prevent corals from re-
The scientists noted that
some healthy Caribbean coral
reefs still exist in well-managed
marine protected areas such as
Bonaire Marine Park in the
Netherlands Antilles. Direct
human impacts are reduced in
these areas allowing most corals
to thrive; however, thermal
stress from global warming
affects all corals in the Caribbean
and must be reversed if these
refuges of Caribbean beauty are
to survive, they added.
"The Caribbean tourism
industry relies heavily on the
beauty and health of its sea life,"
said Dr. Kent Carpenter, GMSA
Director. "Concentrated marine
conservation and a global effort
to halt man-induced climate
change are necessary to preserve
this vital economic engine in the
A healthy reef on Bonaire,

- Two countries confused by many

IOU hear the constant argument by Guyanese, especially tour-
sm officials, that Guyana is often confused with Ghana. "Is
hat in Africa?" they usually ask whenever you go overseas or
mention the name in unfamiliar settings.
One Guyanese woman said the other day that her father in the
JS was sending a package to her here in Guyana, but it ended up in
If you log on to www.boxnews.com/au, you will see they have
national boxing champ Wayne "Big Truck" Braithwaite as a native
,f Ghana.
But did you ever think Ghana is also at times mixed up for
}uyana? Surprisingly, yes it is.
Felicity Boachie-Danquah, a reporter in Ghana, gives tells her
THE similarities between Guyana and Ghana are striking, and I
lon't mean only in the way the names of our two countries are pro-
jounced, which is often where the confusion lies in differentiating
Ghana, as Guyana, is a bird watcher's paradise, an eco-tourist's
taven, a cultural delight, a heritage lover's passion, and a golden ex-
perience at the center of the world.
If gold medals were given to the world's friendliest people, Gha-
izians would definitely be semi-finalists. We hear Guyanese are the
.ost hospitable, so you have a gold medal.
Travelers to Ghana are met with jovial smiles and waves, even
n the big cities.
There really is no "best" time to visit Ghana, as the temperature
s always Africa-hot and if rainfall doesn't soak you, then the humid
dr will.
If you prefer being soaked tropical in nature, stick close to the
beaches Whatever the season, the weather gets more arid the farther
nland you go. Village-specific festival and events occur throughout
he year.
With a population of about 20million, Ghana's population is con-
entrated along the coast and in the principal cities of Accra and
Ethnically, Ghana is divided into small groups speaking more than

fifty languages and dialects. Among the more important linguistic
groups are the Akans. which includes the Fantis along the coast and
the Ashanti's in the forest region north of the coast, the Guans, on
the plains of the Volta River, the Gas and Ewe speaking people of
the south and southeast, and the Moshi-Dagomba-speaking tribes of
the northern and upper regions.
English, the official and commercial language, is taught in all the
schools in Ghana.
By West African standards, Ghana has a diverse and rich resource
base .The country is mainly agricultural, however, with a majority
of its workers engaged in farming. Cash crops consist primarily of
cocoa and cocoa products which typically provide about two-thirds
of export revenue, timber products, coconuts and other palm prod-
ucts, shea nuts and coffee.
Ghana's industrial base is relatively advanced compared to many
other African countries.
Tourism has become one of Ghana's largest foreign income earn-
ers ranking third in 2003 at $600 million, and the Ghanaian govern-
ment has placed great emphasis on further tourism support and de-
Some of our tourist attraction includes the beach, Boti falls,
Aburi Botanical Gardens, Kakum Canopy Walk way, Princess
Dodi Island, fuller falls, Larabanga Mosque, Manet Paradise,
Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, Paga Crocodile Pond, Mole Park,
the Elmina Castle, a variety of cultural festivals and the Na-
tional Zoo among others.
The Ghanaian festivals are a colourful and vibrant part of the
culture. Each year festivals and durbars are held in various parts of
the country, to celebrate the heritage of the people.
Ghana's stated goals are to accelerate economic growth, improve
the quality of life for all Ghanaians and reduce poverty through mac-
roeconomic stability, higher private investment, broad based social
and rural development as well as direct poverty alleviation efforts.
In July 2002 The Government of Ghana declared that the coun-
try can now permit dual nationality.
The confusion starts when you travel outside the country and
you mention Ghana. The question that first comes up from people

who do not know the difference be-
tween the two countries is: Where
is Ghana? Is it the same as Guyana?
However, people in Ghana
are aware of a country called
Guyana, but where to locate it is
the problem. Some have never
heard of the country. They are
very surprise to hear that there
is a similar name like Ghana in
the world.
Tey said given the opportunity.
they would love to visit the
country and find out if there are
any similarities between the two.
"It really feels good to hear that
there is a country like that, I would
love to go there to share ideas, know
their cultural identity" says a yo-
gurt seller.
Linda said she has heard of the
country, but has no idea how its
people look like and their way of
living, it would be a nice adventure
if one visits the country.
Surprisingly, none of the
people I interviewed had had the
opportunity to visit Guyana,
and I don't know if there is
anyone in Guyana who has vis-
ited Ghana.
While we each strive for our
own name identity, Ghana
shares many similarities with
Guyana, so rather than be a
cause for confusion, it should be
seen as a thing of sheer delight!

children of alcoholics it could
apply to any adult children of
personality disordered parents.
I have been pondering %what to
do about my now aging PD
mother and feel very sad she is
unable to change her ways.
I see how being raised by
her impacted my
functioning. It is sad to see
the impact on my siblings as

well. It breaks my heart I

behavior is so hurtful. Other
relatives are judgmental that

viciously mean-spirited, yet
ill, mother.
It makes me cry when I see
a mother and daughter in our age
group. I can't count on my
mother for anything, and she has
only minimal interest in my two
beautiful daughters. It's a real
struggle, and there are no
support groups for adult
children of nasty. iLmean-spiritld.
self-centered parents.
The part you didn't
mention is how to stop the hurt
that never goes away. At my
wedding I had to dress myself.
Graduating with my master's
degree, my mother couldn't help
me adjust my cap, and she
barred my father from the
event. My father never called
with congratulations, and my
sister failed to show after
insisting I had to invite her and
un-invite my then fiance.
My first child was born and
not one moment of shared
wisdom, support, or
encouragement was offered. I
feel utter aloneness when facing
life's struggles. What do you do


with the broken heart that this
is the family\ you were born to?
Years of therapy don't
seem to take the ache away.


Adrianne, an old joke
begins with a man going to a
tailor to buy a suit.
The tailor hands himu a
gorgeous suit, but when he tries
it on. the man sees one sleeve
is longer than the other. The
tailor suggests tugging on the
short sleeve to make it longer.
However, then the suit doesn't
button properly. So the tailor
tells the man to carry his head
to one side and thrust out the
opposite elbow.
Now the suit fits perfectly.
So the man buys the suit and
walks out of the store. Two
other men spot him on the
sidewalk. One says to the other.
"What a beautiful suit! But what
do you suppose is wrong with
the poor devil wearing it?"
Some suits will never fit.

Novelist Philip Roth
once wrote a line that goes,
"Obedience is embraced to

words, following moral and

to make life easier for us.
There is a moral precept
about honoring our parents,
and it is our nature to do
so. But with cruel parents,

doesn't help. Following

- Why the trade in fake Malaria

drugs is a threat to humanity

Preah Vihear province in
northern Cambodia, close to
the Thai border is a lush
jungle region that used to be
a stronghold of the Khmer
Rouge; a remote, underdevel-
oped province. It also has a
high rate of malaria.
In the small town hospital
is Jai Prok, a thin 63-year-old.
When he first became ill he tried
to treat himself. He bought ma-
laria medicine from a hawker
who came to his village but it
simply did not work.
And such an experience is
not unusual, according to
Solang, the man in charge of the
hospital's medicines.
"There's no way patients
can tell the difference between
fake drugs and the real thing,"
he says.

"Even some doctors can't
tell. They all look the same."
It is hard to get an accurate
picture of how many anti-ma-
larial drugs are fake.
A group of malaria special-
ists, part of a collaborative
project involving Oxford Univer-
sity, Bangkok's Mahidol Uni-
versity and the Wellcome Trust,
have carried out small-scale sur-
veys in Cambodia, Laos, Viet-
nam and Burma.
What is certain, says pro-
fessor Nick Day a leading
member of the team in Bangkok
- is that fake drugs are a mas-
sive problem in South East Asia.
"In some areas 30-50%, or
even more than 50%, of drugs
you buy randomly from phar-

macies are actually fake," he
"They contain no active
anti-malarial ingredient."
The composition of these
fakes is wide-ranging. Some are
totally inert substances like
starch. Others contain cheap
drugs like paracetamol.
Others do contain small
quantities of the artesunate-type
anti-malarial drugs probably
only to fool the testers but
ironically it is these that consti-
tute a major problem in them-
Global resistance to the
last generation of malaria
drugs first emerged in this
region. Now scientists are
worried that these small
amounts could expose para-
sites to a level of the drug

that is not enough to kill
them, but could select for re-
sistant parasites.
The artemisinin class of
drugs, of which artesunate is
one, is the most powerful and
effective in treating malaria -
and the impact of parasites de-
veloping resistance to them
would be disastrous, says pro-
fessor Day.
Particularly in Africa, which
sees about 90% of the world's
malaria cases, it would be "a
public health catastrophe," he
And he describes the crimi-
nals responsible for this grow-
ing trade as murderers.
They are sophisticated
enough to know exactly what
they are doing and the im-
pact their fake drugs have on

China's actual role is un-

artemisinin family of drugs came
from China in the first place, and
they're derived from sweet

Sunday Chronicle June 10, 200,

After he left, I looked out of the window for a while, with my
coat on and all. I didn't have anything else to do. You'd be
surprised what was going on in the other side of the hotel.
They didn't even bother to pull their shades down.
I saw one guy, a grey-haired, very distinguished-looking guy
with only his shorts on, do something you wouldn't believe
me even if I told you. First he put his suitcase on the bed.
Then he took out all these women's clothes silk stockings,
high-heeled shoes, brassieres, and one of those corsets with
the straps hanging down and all. Then he put on this very
tight evening dress. I swear to God. Then he started walk-
ing up and down the room, taking those very small steps,
the way a woman does, and smoking a cigarette and looking
at himself in the mirror. He was all alone, too. Unless some-
body was in the bathroom I couldn't see that much.
Then in the window almost right over his, I saw a man and a
woman squirting water out of their mouth at each other. It
probably was highballs, not water, but I couldn't see what
they had in their glasses. Anyway, first he'd take a swallow
and squirt it all over her, then she did it to him they took
turns, for God's sake. You should've seen them. They were
in hysterics the whole time, like it was the funniest thing that
ever happened. I'm not kidding, that hotel was lousy with
perverts. I was probably the only normal bastard in the
whole place and that isn't saying much. I'd... near send a
telegram to old Stradlater telling him to take the first train to
New York. He'd have been the king of the hotel.

Suppose this is the way you choose to write your story, by
looking into windows or houses or diaries, or at photographs.
You shouldn't stop here. You then have to choose the lan-
guage to write with which suits the character you set up your-
self to be.
This is an effort to assist you in writing your short stories,
giving account of events, and presenting description in a
light-hearted fashion. Right now you have a choice either
to continue to write and complete this story or to write an-
other one more fitting your experience. Handle it however
you think it fitting.
Whatever is your choice, think on the following questions:
What aspects would you develop further? Why? What as-
pects would you develop in your own choice? What aspects
would you add?
What would you make the narr,.Lor do next? Would you want
to turn his attention to a sober side of the hotel, wake him
up from his spying or would you open more windows to him?
Think carefully about what you would do and do it well.

Write a story based on the picture below. Let it be approxi-
mately 400 to 500 words in length. Add whatever characters
you desire. Write in Standard English. Da) A story seems
very real to the reader if the characters speak for themselves.
b) A story with dialogue (conversation) in it is usually easier
and more interesting to read than one without.

Look how the following story comes alive with dialogue.

They went out from the house. The sun turned the
sweat of Durante to hot water and then dried his skin
so that his clothes felt transparent. "Tony, I got to be
mean," said Durante. "Stand right here where I can
see you. Don't get too close. Now listen. The sheriff
would be along this trail sometime today, looking for
me. He'll load up himself and all his gang with water
out of your tanks. Then he'll follow my sign across

"What you done, poor Dick?" said Tony. "Now look, I could
hide you in the old wine cellar where nobody -"
"The sheriffs not going to find water," said Durante. "It's

He put the rifle to his shoulder, aimed, fired. The shot struck
the base of the nearest tank, ranging down through the bot-

the edge near the iron wall.
Tony fell to his knees. "No, no, Dick! Good Dick!" he said.

NOTED Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt Tuesday said
he would soon make a film on the betting cartel in cricket
with the mysterious death of former Pakistani coach Bob
Woolmer as its peg.
Bhatt said that the film would have a potent combination
of cricket, love story and betting in it.
"It will not be a film on Bob Woolmer himself but his death
will definitely be an inspiration to the film." he told reporters
The lead role in the vet-to-be-named film will be enacted
by Emraan Hashmi and the role of Woolmer will be done by an
actor from abroad.
Bhatt earlier inaugurated "Actor Prepares" the acting
school set up by Kher with Punjab Governor S.F. Rodrigues.

Panjab University here nearly four decades ago, has set up the
institute to provide professional acting training to aspiring ac-
tors from the region.
He recently made selections for the first batch of 25 stu-
The acting institute will be run in collaboration with the

give tips to students from their rich experience," Kher said.



(Mumbai) FORMER Miss Universe Sushmita Sen says her
month long trip to Trinidad, 13 years after she visited it for
the first time, has filled her with regret. The lush green tropi-
cal island has turned into a concrete jung.
"It felt uncanny to be back in Trinidad after 13 years, this time
to shoot a film. The last time it was in the capacity of Miss Uni-
verse. The greenery is gone! The entire tropical island has been
turned into a concrete jungle. But the warmth and hospitality of
the people remains unchanged," Sushmita, who was there to shoot
Mudassar Aziz's "Dulha Mil Gaya", told IANS.
The people overwhelmed Sushmita with their hospitality.
"They welcomed me as though I was one of them. I've never
felt so much at home in any other foreign country. But it's good to
be back home after so long," said Sushmita who landed in Mumbai
Tuesday morning.
"When I was in Trinidad 13 years ago someone stole my
Miss Universe watch from my hotel room. It was very precious,
and not because it was expensive. I don't show my emotions
much in public. But that day I had cried. -
"Now cut to when I land in Trinidad last month. And guess
what? The locals remembered that unpleasant incident! They came
up to me at various public places from the time I landed up on the
island to apologise for what happened so long ago. It was a truly
heartwarming acceptance of the fact that wounds are meant to heal."
Sushmita returned from Trinidad with a fund of fond memories
of the island and the film.
"I don't know about how 'Dulha Mil Gaya' will look finally.
But I had a ball shooting it. Mudassar has done a splendid job. I'm
very satisfied with the way the film has shaped up."
Daughter Renee had accompanied Sushmita to Trinidad.
"We two girls had ourselves a ball."

INDIAN superstar Salman Khan stepped in at Studio Napean in Mumbai for Rouble Nagt's art exhibition the hysterdwas
worth the watch. "Neither am I a painter nor an artist I am doing this just for Salman Khan Foundation for charity. I can only
draw or sketch." Khan said. Artist Rouble Nacgi added, "Salman is a very good painter. He has 'got1 some excellent concept
and he's got some excellent concepts ... and he has picked up so quickly". There are reports that Khan himself is coming up
with his own art exhibition soon.
