pleted, it will have Ithe capacity
of producing 1 16, ([00 tomes of
raw sugar annually.
Persaud said 1.1 million
tonnes of sugar cane which
will be required to make the
SSMP sustainable represents
three times the current pro-
duction of the Skeldon estate.
He said the additional cane
will be produced from about
4, 7000 hectares of new estate
lands in Manaribisi and
about 4, 200 hectares of new
farmers' lands, both next to
the estate and at Moleson
He said the estate area w~ill
be almost doubled and thle 'arml-
crs' area more than 10 limles
greater than at present .
To expand to such a \calle.
Minister Persaud said it has
been necessary\ to sconiderl the
water mnanagementl of the w-hole
area. He said in the dr\ wecathel,
it is not possible for Skeldon es-
tale to draw more w~ater from
the Canje that it is now doing.
To meet the increased de-
mand for water. storage is nec-
essary and this will be achieved
by raising damrs around the natu-
ral conservancy
However. while pointing to
a bright future ahead for sugar,
Mr Persaud did not hide the fail-
ings he now sees.
Persaud said management of

the Guyana Sugar Corporation
is obligated to keep open the
doors of discussions and nego-
tiations in solving issues affect-
ing workers and hereby allevi-
ating the high increase in strikes
and absenteeism.
"When we strike or ab-
sent ourselves during good
sunny weather, we run the
risk of producing the same
acreage of cane all-right, but
the quality may not be the
same, in that sucrose level in
canes tends to drop during
rainy periods," he noted.
Persaud said the 3. 400)
cane cutters will be recquired to,
meet the needs ofr the new
Skeldon estate. butl just about
550 of the 9.50 the CorIpor~ation
has on its roll turn out curr'ntl\..
He said actua~l frindling of
the East Berbice estate have
been falling from 122 hours per
week to as low as 9)3 hours per

dance and loss of production
continues as at the last crop's

would be unable to service nar-
kets on time and hence lose rev-
However, despite these

tonnes target for the last crop.

WITH electricity generation
from the Skeldon sugar fac-
tory set to commence by year-
end, MIinister of Agriculture
Robert Persaud yesterday
hailed progress in the con-
struction of the Skeldon
Sugar M~odernisation Plant
(SSMlP). but warned against
problems such as loss of pro-
duction and absenteeism.
"Sugar is secure." he told
sugar workers and their families
gathered at the Skeldon Commu-
nity Centre for an annual func-
tion to honour workers of the
four Berbice estates. However.
h~e called for workers and man-
agemient to work together to
achieve the goal of tripling pro-
duction at Skeldon when the
more than new US$180M fac-
tory is completed
Persaud said the SSMP has
been designed as a generation
factory capable of supplying 10
MW of electrical power to the
national grid. If it were to be

used in the Berbice region, this
would double the county's
H-e salid the first c<>nn~ction
to the grid is in progress and the
first export of diesel fenerated
power is due later this yea;r.
This will be a 13.8 NV sulpply
of up to six megawans~l to Up-
per Corentyne.
Wlhen the eventual 35 per
cent cut in the price focr sugar
is effected by the Eur-opean
Union in 20)10, Gu?ana will

enues from sugar. but w'ith
the Skeldon Sugar
Modernisation Plant
(SSMP), Persaud said the in-
dustry would be secure. He
said Guyana is the only coun-
try in the Caribbean pre-
pared to mitigate the drastic
European price cuts.
"No worker will be left be-
hind. and no estate w1I h e
closed (due to modernization)"
Persaud told sugar w~orkers and

Sex abuse rising
(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) Sexual abuse of children is on the
rise in Trinidad and Tobago, says Antoinette Francis, heallth
promotions coordinator of the North Western Regional
Health Authority (NWRHA).
Francis, one of the organizers of the NWRHA's Child Sexual
Abuse Series, was speaking to the Express Friday during a work-
shop at the Diego Martin Community Centre.
"From all indications from our medical social workers and
from the psychiatrists involved, it (sexual abuse) appears to be
a growing problem, one that affects the overall health of the
community," she said.
According to Francis, the effects of sexual molestation in-
clude higher rates of infection, promiscuous behaviour. depres-
sion, schizophrenia, and suicidal tendencies.
"In the end, these sorts of violence and abuse end up being
a health issue and we are all aware of how taxed our health
resources are," she said.
Dr Gerard Hutchinson of the Mt Hope Psychiatric Unit
agrees that sexual abuse affects the mental health and behavioral
patterns of the victim.
"Most mental illnesses are more likely to occur in kids who
have been abused," he told the Express.
"The bottom line is that abuse has psychological and psy-
chiatric effects, but the more challenging issue is how it affects
the child's personality as he grows up," Hutchinson continued.
He said that in some cases, instead of leading to depression
or anxiety disorders, abuse affects the individual's interactions
within the society.
"The individual becomes mal-adaptive," he said. "He is not
inclined to make the best adjustments or response to social de-
The mal-adaptive personality, according to Hutchinson, is
more likely to flout societal norms and engage in risky behaviour
like sexual promiscuity.
When asked if the sexual abuse of children is on the rise,
Hutchinson said that there is definitely an increase in reported
He was careful to note, however, that this may be a result
o: society becoming more open about the issue.
He said that 30 to 50 per cent of the children referred
to children's homes like St Jude's were abused.

international donors conference organised
by the Caribbean Comrtiunity took place in
From all accounts, it highlighted an encouraging
display of genuine com-mitment by CARICOM to
vigorously pursue with its envisaged modernisation and
expansion of the region's vital agricultural sector.
Practical partnership support from traditional "donor
friends" of the region is key to achieving success.
`While for many CARICOM member states tourism
and, to a lesser exent, the service sector have long been
major pillars of their economies, for others--Guyana
being perhaps the leading one, but also including
Jamaica, Belize, and a number of OECS countries-
agriculture remains both a significant source of
employment and.foreign exchange earnings.
The presence and active participation in the donors
conference in Port-of-Spain of President Bharrat Jagdeo,
who has lead responsibility for transformation of
-Caribbean agriculture, and Prime Minister Patrick
Manning seem to have made quite a positive impact.
The event received also a good boost from Director
General of the- UN Food and Agriculture Organisation,
Jacques Diouf. He had set the tone in his own address
for engaging exchanges and exposition.
The technical expertise provided by the CARICOM
Secretariat ensured good insight into the critical needs
and persistent bottlenecks that underlie the very
daunting task of achieving a significant reduction in the
region's estimated US$3 Billion food imports bill, as well

on related challenges for food security and building
sustainable rural communities,
Although not intended to be a strictly "pledging
conference", there was, nevertheless, available for
consideration and reflection by representatives of donor
governments and agencies approximately 25 regional
projects and 40 national project profiles from 14
CARICOM countries involving an expenditure of US$300
million. .
These regional/national projects are situated within
a framework to address the infrastructure, policy,
regulatory and research needs b~y which a new
diversified and competitive agriculture.sector could
contribute to food security, increased employment, and
generate more foreign exchange to better enable the
emerging CARICOM Single Market and Economy
Among the range of donor partners that revealed a
more encouraging response to what CARICOM is
seeking, overall, to achieve, the Government of Italy
clearly stood out by being quite forthcoming with a
specific pledge of two million Euros to enable upscaling
of the current Regional Special Programme on Food
Security. This programme is being implemented in
collaboration with the FAO and the CARIFORUM Group
(CARICOM plus Dominican Republic).
Generally speaking, donor participants appeared
sympathetic to the the efforts being pursued for the
transformation of Caribbean agriculture. But
disappointment was also in evidence at the lack of

There were scores of U.S.-
based Caribbean nationals at
the Diaspora meetings who
wanted to cement links and
help the Caribbean in any
which way they could.
There was one guy, John
McKenzie, the President of the
Caribbeari-American Chamber
of Commerce, who wanted to
link U.S.-Caribbean profession-
als with Caribbean-based pro-
fessionals and have some syn-
ergies going.
And while the U.S. did not
seem to have any senior

r~iers andt protectionist policies,
and facing margilnalisation by
free trade agreements between
powerful nations which do not
include them.
Yet. the Caribbeann did not
go with their hats in hand to
beg; they did not cower and use
nice words to describe the prob-
lems they- were going through,
and they did not shy away
from criticising the U.S. on a
number of fronts.
I think the Trinidadian
Prime Minister Patrick Man-
ning nailed it on the head when
he said Caribbean leaders did
not go to the meeting with U.S.
President George W. Bush to
make any demands.
Instead, they wanted to
share certain issues and concerns
the Caribbean was facing.
"In outlining the case, what
we sought to do was not to
specifically ask for ABC and D,
but to outline the situation, out-
line the position of the Carib-
bean countries and to ask the
US that, in those circumstances,
" what are you prepared to do,
" according to Manning.
Barbadian Prime Minis-
ter Owen Arthur also struck
a resonant point when he de-
livered one of his best

speeches yet, informing
Washington that, "we have
not come to Washington to
hanker after a nostalgic past.
And we have come here not
as people without hope."
The Caribbean sought an
audience with the U.S. as it was
the region's closest developed
country neighbour, their minor
trading partner and the home of
the largest number of migrants
from the Caribbean.
Among issues that were
put on the platter for the U.S.
to consider were expanding
the range of goods and ser-
vices in the CBl; the issue of
security in the Caribbean re-
garding the transshipment of
illegal drugs and all the in-
herent problems with that in
fuelling crime; the issue of
deportation and health issues
such as HIVIAIDS.
It's now left to the U.S to
decide whether it will continue
to ignore our concerns or lend
a hand in dealing with some of
our problems which we all
know would make a great, big
difference to our countries.
One of the issues raised at
the meeting by President Bush
was the close relations between
the Caribbean countries and

The President was dis-
tur~bed by this.
But it wals made clear by
several Caribbean leaders,
including ;;uyana's Presi-
dent Blharrat Jagdeo and St.
Vincent and the G~renadines
Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph
Gonsalves, that Cuba, along
with Venezuela and .even
China, were the only coun-
tries helping the Caribbean.
Should we ignore their help
which we so desperately need
given our small economies and
reducing GDPs?
The fact is thalt seven of' the
top ten countries across the
globe with the highest ratio of
debt to GDP are to be found in
the Caribbean. Only two are
beneficiaries of the HIPC initia-
This might have been news
to the U.S., given their lack of
attention to us.
President Bush was also
told that the Caribbean re-
spected the U.S. position to
have partners, and they hoped
the U.S. would respect the Car-
ibbean to have their own part-
ners as well. -
Caribbean leaders also had
an opportunity to meet with
members of the civil society, in-
cluding the Diaspora, the pri-

officials at the various plenary
and Diaspora sessions, the
World Bank, the IMF, the IDB
and the OAS were greatly
represented and once again,
the Caribbean needs to tap
into those resources for help -
and their officials have all
publicly pledged to give
assistance to the Caribbean in
several spheres.
As an aside, special thanks
.to the OAS, and in particular,
the Assistant Secretary General
Albert Ramdin for inviting a
Iarge contingent of journalists
from all 14 Caribbean Commu-
nity (CARICOM) countries to
take part in a one-day seminar
and facilitating our presence in
Washington for the Caribbean
leaders' meeting.
We were indeed happy
that more efforts are being
made for a strong Caribbean
presence in the OAS, despite
the overwhelming Latin
American bias of the hemi-
spheric body.

THE Caribbean may have

they returned home with

that since CARICOM and Cen-
tral America "have a common
and shared vulnerability", they
must "really try to find common
ground on matters where there
is a common vulnerability."
Noting that this situation has
existed for some time, he said
that "it is through meetings like
this and through the determina-
tion to find means and mecha-
nisms for cooperation in the fu-
ture that such conflict in the
past may be avoided in the fu-
But it was not just the
trade issue that took centre
stage. Other crucial matters
such as natural disasters,
energy, investments and
transportation received
emphasis. Noting that
natural disasters and climate
change present a grave
danger to Central America
and the Caribbean, the
summit saw the necessity for
closer coordination between
the relevant bodies
established within the
framework of CARICOM and
SICA. As a result, a high level
meeting on "Environment
and Disaster Prevention and
Mitigation" is currently
Ileing planned for Honduras
in order to discuss and
analyse a proposal for a joint
project in both sub-regions.
And in a further effort to
intensify their efforts to combat
and mitigate the potentially
devastating impact of climate
change on the countries of both
regions, CARICOM and SICA
will also collaborate on propos-
als that may be incorporated in
the multilateral regime pres-

establishing a joint free trade
agreement (FTA). The Foreign
Trade Ministers, during the
February meeting, agreed on this
direction, and the summit
formalised this by deciding to
start discussions for such an ac-
cord. The heads decided to use
as a basis the current Caricom-
Costa Rica FTA which provides
for accession by other countries
of the two sub-regions and re-
garded as the most appropriate
tool for achieving the early
realisation of enhanced trade re-
lations among the participating
As a result of this deci.
sion, a preparatory meeting
of CARICOM and SICA rep.
resentatives was subse-
quently held in Panama City
on 30 May to discuss the
framework of the FTA.
Among the issues considered
were the legal format that
would constitute the agree-
ment; the amendments and
revisions that must be incor-
porated to align the integra-
tion of the other SICA mem-
bers into the framework of
the Costa Rica CARICOM
FTA; and market access such
as rules of origin, customs
rules and administrative pro-
A critical trade issue which
has seen a long running differ-
ence between the two sub-re-
gions is over the matter of' pref-
erential treatment by the Euro-
pean Union for bananas pro-
duced in CARICOM member-
states. Commenting on this
problem which was aired at the
summit, Barbados' Prime Min-
ister Owen Arthur emphasized

ently being negotiated. They
will also support the proposal
that the UN Economic and So-
cial Council should hold a spe-
cial session at the level of For-
eign Ministers in the margins of
the 62nd Session of the UN
General Assembly in September
this year.
In addition, the summit in-
volved itself in a thorough dis-
cussion on the question of en-
ergy in the light of the serious
effect of energy costs on the
economies of both sub-regions.
The leaders discussed practical
ways to address this situation,
including pursuing renewable
energy alternatives, diversifying
energy sources and encouraging
energy conservation. They also
set an objective to harmonise
regional energy policies and
strengthen the energy sector in
the member-states.
An important part of the
discussions centred on the
question of security and the
expanding problem of crime.
In this respect, both groups
decided to advance coopera-
tion in the fight against
organised crime, including
illicit trafficking ill small

arms and light weapons, drug
trafficking, among other
criminal activities, through
the exchange of information
and the establishment of
mechanisms aimed at rein-
forcing such collaboration.
Hailing the summit as a suc-
cess, and pointing to the agree-
ment reached between the two
sub-regions, Belize's Prime
Minister Said Musa said, "We
believe that this bold initiative
will not only bring our pei~ples
closer together but also help in
the fight against poverty"
Indeed, both CARICOM
and SICA have cooperated in
many hemispheric and other
multilateral issues over the past
decade. Such cooperation is very
active at the UN where both
groupings participate as mem-
bers of the Latin American and
Caribbean Group (GRULAC)
and at the OAS where they
share similar views on political,
economic and social problems
affecting the smaller economies
of the hemisphere.
Undoubtedly, this overdue
summit has reinvigorated the
natural alliance between
CARICOM and SICA whose

By Odeen Ishmael

As part of the efforts to ex-
pand regional integration, the
second joint summit of heads
of state and government of
the Caribbean Community .
(Caricom) and the Central
American Integration System
(SICA) convened in Belize
City, Belize on 12.May 2007.
The first summit was held in
February 2002, also in Belize
City. And now with a more
organised approach to inte-
gration in place, the leaders
decided to hold future sum-
mits every two years, with
Nicaragua hosting the next
one in May 2009.
In preparation for this re-
cent summit, the Ministers re-
sponsible for Foreign Affairs,
the Econortly and Foreign
Trade held discussions in Belize
in February 2007 on strength-
ening the political dialogue and
cooperation, and expanding
trade between the two hemi-
spheric sub-regions. ~
Significantly, the summit
reaffirmed the action plan drawn
up by the Foreign Ministers at
their February meeting, by
which CARICOM and SICA
aimed to further increase
cooperation in numerous areas.
including human development.
health, housing. poverty
eradication, environment and
disaster mitigation, foreign
policy coordination, foreign
trade and investment, crime and
security. the fight against
corruption, air transportation,
tourism, and cultural exchanges.
For many years, both sides
had expressed the importance of

member-states are all
classified as smaller
economies. Operating fromt
the cooperation agreement of
this summit and the action
plan crafted by the Foreign
Ministers, both sub-regions
can now take concrete
decisions in their mutual
interests at multilateral
forums such as the OAS, the
UN and at the World Trade
Organisation discussions.
More particularly, by
increasing their political
consultations on a more
streamlined basis in the
regional, hemispheric and
international forums, they
are now in a better position
to identify areas of consensus
while working to develop
joint positions and coordinate
on issues of mutual interest

CARICOM in its formation,
comprises two groups of
countries; the More devel-
oped Countries (MDC's) and
the Less Develped Countries
(LDC's) ,
Founded inl973, CARICOM
now celebrates 34 years in exist-
ence. Thirty-three years I believe,
is sufficienttime torealize the col-
lective dreaml of itsi member states
.CARICOM, as we are aware, is
a continuation of CARIFTA, the
Caribbean Free Tmde AmeaBased
on the miniknumlI~vel ofcoopera-
tion in a free trade area, we can
safely conclude that CARIFTA
achieved its goals, particularly re-
garding the elimination of tariffs
and imports quotas.
CARICOM's mandate, I
dare say, has not een the same
level of success There contin-
ues to be much' discussion on
the inadequacyi of regional

policy towards the national
needs of the member countries.
We continue after 34 years to
still struggle with a crisis of
the integration system, a struLc-
tural crisis of a specific franme-
work for developing and work-
ing towards a certain quality of
collective life and an ideal of
unity for the peoples of the re-
gion. .
One must, however, in fair-
ness to the process, give credit
for the introduction of the
CARICOM Single Market and
Economy (CSME). But even
the functional framnework of this
initiative is of some concern to
me. While one cannot honestly
disagree with the proponents
that the benefits of this initia-
tive are numerous, consideration
has to be given to the fact that
greater benefits will be derived
by the MDC's, and conse-

quen"tly the LDC's if those is-
sues are addressed or the
LDC's in the region will con-
tinue to haemolrhage. It is a fact
that CSME has led to an un-
precedented brain drain in many
parts of the region.
Contextually speaking, it
is not represented as such,
but rather as a movement of
skilled personnel fromlpri-
marily LDCs to MDCs. It is
a fact also that the quality of
our relationship as a region
suffers as a result of immi-
gration policies and practices
affecting the execution of the
mandate of the CSME. What
.is missing I believe is a man-
datory conditionality that re-
quires member states to con-
form to trade agreements as
a prerequisite for the em-
ploying ef nationals from
CARICOM member states .

In other wordls, you cannot
have our human resources if
you will not talke our export
products. CARICOM's expec-
tation that integration in the
region promises economic
gains by providing an avenue
for increased regional and
extra-regional trade is noth-
ing but a fleeting illusion; at
least from a Guyanese per-
It is my view and I believe
it is substantiatecd by the pre-
ponderance of evidence that
CARICOM trade has not ben-
efited Guyana. CARICOM
trade is and has been dominated
by Barbados and Trinidad and
Tobago and to some extent la-
maica. The records are there to
prove that the percentage of
trade that takes place within the
region, scarcely benefits
Guyana's Foreign Trade sector.
Most of our traditional ag-
ricultural crops have, out of
great necessity, found their way
to markets outside of the region.
As I have said, this is not of
choice, but primarily on the ba-
sis that our brothers and sisters
in the CARICOM family are
talking the talk but not walking
the walk when it comes to trade
relations in the region.
Only recently Guyana's rice
exporters found it necessary to
begin proceedings in the Carib-
bean Court of' Justice against
Montserrat and Antigua after
they breached the COTED regu-
lations on extra regional impor-

Recently also, the Minis-
ter of Foreign Trade ex-
pressed frustration over the
disregard for established
rules governing Commion Ex-
ternal Tariffs. The defaulters
identified, were Antigua,

many of the countries in the
region. While Guyana has
been vigorously pursuing
openings in Europe and Latin
America for example, it is no
idle boast when we say that
Guyana's agriculture sector
has the capability of feeding

Grenada and St, Vincent. It is
clear that trade within the
region has denied Guyana her
share of the pie. The results
therefore,, concur; regional
integratidra does not neces-
sarily inc ease trade flows
and mn sorte cases may even
be associa ed with a decline.
While Caribbean integration
has provided numerous non-
economic gains, the contin-
ued imbalance in trade prac-
tices is potentially harmful to

the entire Caribbean. All we
ask for is a level, open play-
ing field. Trade offers an op-
portunity for economic gains
that are best realized within
an environment that supports
skilled resources, sound and
credible government institu-
tions, and technologicaldevel-
opment. Without these fun-
damentals,. the pursuit of eco-
nomic gains via regional in-
tegration will likely continue
to be disappointing.

GUYANA on Friday joined
the world to observe
Fishermen's Day 2007 and
all stakeholders were called
upon to heighten their coop-
eration in order that the
main challenges facing' the
sector could be addressed
To mark the occasion. a
National Forum on Fisheries
was held at Berbice State
House. New Amsterdam, Re-
gion Six under the theme "Fish-
ing Rights- Making the Indus-
try Safer." Various stakeholders
and officials from the Ministry
of Agriculture. the Coastguard
and the Guyana Police Force
were present at the eveht.
Minister of Agriculture
Robert Persaud, delivering the
feature address, said Govern-
ment recognizes the importance
of security to fishermen and the
viability of the industry, thus
the forum focused on security.
He highlighted the critical role
of fishermen's support to com-
bat piracy and hijacking.
He noted thrit while
'Fishermen's Day' is celebrated
under the theme -'Fishing
Rights." there is also need for
focus on the responsibilities of
fishermen to conduct harvest-
ing in a sustainable manner.
This may be done by ensuring
the use of Turtle Excluder De-
vices (TEDs) where necessary,
or the right size of seine and
"In order to safeguard
your rights, we must take the
necessary steps to achieve sus-
tainable catches and prevent
over-exploitation of our re-
sources." Minister Persaud
He noted that Guyana has
an estimated area of 138.240
square kilometres of maritime
space and there are other fish-
cry restmirces tat hav not

coastal pelagic and large pelagic
tuna, dolphin. wahoos and
king mackerel. .
"Revenues from the re-
srqurc iin the deep ea can be
manner, since the products
from these resources are high
priced and in much demand.
The Glovernment has received
al number of local and foreign
applications to harvest these
rtsour e," the Minister told

He pointed out that several
regulations will be put in place
before any harvesting is allowed
and will be in accordance with
international fisheries conven-
Lieutenant Commander,
Coastgutird, Trevor Blenman,
who spoke about security in
the fisheries sector, said there
is greater need f'or cooperation
of fisherfolks, especially to
provide necessary information
that can' be used to apprehend
pirates. He noted that many
times reports are made about
incidents of piracy, but limited
information is provided and

this prohibits the Coastguard
from going after the pirates.
He pointed out the imnpor-
tance of security to
sustainability arid further ad-
vancement of the sector' and as-
sured of the Coastguard's comn-
mitment to effect the necessary
actions that will arddress piracy
and hijackings. Reports show
five incidents of hijacking over
the period Januanry to June 20)07.
during which nine crewvs were
affected as compared to eight in-
cidents of piracy involving 19
crews during the correcspondcing
Commander of' B Div~ision,
Clinton Conway, also hiigh-
lighted the need for cooper-ation
of fishermen in providing neces-
sary information to add~ress pi-
racy. He noted that his division
has been collaborating w~ith oth-
ers to address piracy andl there
have been some successes. Ear-
lier this year, several sdspccted
pirates were charged after a raid
at Hogg Island on the Essequiho
River. The Commalnder further
stated that efforts are being
mnade to enhance mlarine capac-
ity to tackle piracy. and urged
that fishermen ensure licensin
and registering of their vecssels a
early -as possible. .

MOULDING a vibrant non-
traditional crop sector con-
tinues to be of significant im-
portance to the Government
of Guyana as part of its thrust
to boost the agricultural sec-
tor, increase income and na-
tional earnings, and aid the
country's advancement.
Guyanese farmers have al-
ways cultivated non-traditional
crops but not on a large scale,
since this was seen as a mere
kitchen garden practice or sub-
sistence farmmng. In the past,
some farmers had adopted the
practice of bartering these items
in exchange for other essential
food items-

fruits, vegetables and citrus that


culture Robert Persaudl told the
National Assembly in February.
To date, the Central Pack-
aging Centre at Sophia has re-
corded about 30)% increase in
exports over the corresponding
period last yearu.
This surely shows upward
mobility since Guyana's
economy is heavily reliant on
agriculture which accounts for
43 percent of the country's to-
tal earnings and contributes
mnore than 30 percent to the
Gross Domestic Product

For centuries past,
Guyana's agricultural focus has
been on rice and sugar which
were considered the mainstay of
the economy. However, recent
global changes have forced many

to reconsider this and expand
the agricultural base to include
non-traditional crops, hence the
additional focus and effort in
developing this ara. One signifi-
cant reason for this shift is the
removal of preferential market
arrangements previously en-
joyed by small developing coun-
tries, including Guyana, which
has put pressure on the future
of these traditional industries.
Government's persuasion
and support for the sector are
proving successful as exports
have moved from 1902 tonnes
in 1992 to 5, 219 tonnes in 2006.
This outstanding performance
represents annual earnings of
approximately $1]B.

creates employment for many

Four crops were identified
by Government for promotion
and larger scale cultivation:
pumpkins, plantains, pine-
apples and peppers, referred to
as the 4Ps. These crops carry
sturdy market demands at both
the regional and international
levels and are expected to lead
the development chamn.
Guyana is taking advantage
of these available markets, since
they provide great opportunities
for local farmers. Ex-
ports of pumpkin have
increased from 59 52'
tonnes in 2001 to 275 33
tonnes in 2005. There
have since been projects
to promote the cultiva-
tion of this crop to en-
sure constant supplies to
available markets.

U.S. boosting security

at airports: White House

KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (Reuters) The United States is boosting security at airports
following a suspected terrorist attack at Glasgow airport and car bombs found in London,
the White House said yesterday.
Officials said there was no specific threat in the United States and that the colour-coded gauge
of security threats was not being raised.
But White House spokesman Tony Snow said more police and federal agents would be sent to
guard airports and that travellers could expect inconveniences such as longer lines ahead of the
busy Independence Day holiday on July 4t, especially at larger airports.
"There is no indication of any specific or credible thr~eat to the United States, no change in the
overall security level." said Snow who is with George W. Bush at the president's parents' summer
hlomle in Kennebunkiport, Maine.
H-owev\er, Snow said the Transportation Security Administration, the fedlerall agency in charges
of se~curity at U.S. airports. is undertaking some "alertness-raising measures ".
"Ytou're likely to see those (measures) in the increased presence of some TSA agents outside
termin~als," Snow said. More local police would also be sent to guard airports.
Asked if the beefed-up security was promipted by the London and Glasgow incidents,
Snow said. "I think it's really a result of just trying to malke sure that. when you're tak-
ing a look at developments.around the world, that you're taking every' necessary precau-
tion- '
Britain raised its national security alert level yesterday to "critical", the highest level that indi-
cates an attack is expected imminently.
A four-wheel-drive vehicle crashed into the main terminal at Glasgow airport atnd ex-
ploded in flames in an incident that Scotland's first minister said was being treated as a
terrorist attack. A day earlier in London, police foiled a possible al Queda plot to detonate
two car bombs.

ber of young people.
"I was very shocked when
I read the statistics in the min-
istry of health that showed that
so many young people aged 20
to 44 had died as a result of
HIV/AIDS. It means that

legislative measures were
even more crucial.
"Society doesn't always
have to react to this break-down
in social mores and values by
legislating against it," she said.
"I think we need to educate our
people as to what is appropri-
ate conduct."
Accordingly, Senator
Mottley wants the Office of the
Children's Advocate to lead the
way in launching the proposed
public education campaign pro-
moting abstinence.
This campaign, she said,

Minister Owen Arthur has
told the Barbados Cricket As-
sociation (BCA) he doesn't
plan to wait forever for a de-
termination of the way for-
ward for Kensington Oval.
The vexing issue has been
on the; table for some time now
and escalated in recent weeks
with great public debate since
the conclusion of the Cricket
World Cup (CWC) in April.
Kensington Oval was rede-
veloped at a cost of about
B'dosl50 million to host the
CWC final. The work was un-

dertaken by the Barbaldos Tiur-
ism Investment Inc. (BTI) a
Government agency. and the
"l expect that after the BTIan ,u
the BCA have successfully com-
pleted their discussions they will
move quickly to put in place the
new govemance, management and
operational set-up for Kensington
Oval," Arthur said.
"With the permission of the
Government, the BTI has quite
some time ago made a very clear
offer to the BCA on the corpo-
rate arrangement in respect to
the ownership, marketing and

the ma;nagementn of thle redlevel-
oped Kensington Oval."
Arthur \\ feature address to unveil the
new Herbert House, which is
home to the Cricket Legends of
Barbados Inc.
"For more than two years the
BT`I and the Government have
been waiting on the BCA to get the
agreement of its members. This
evening, I say again, that the Gov-
ernment respects that part of the
redeveloped Kensington Oval
which belongs to the BCA," the
Prime Minister added.
"The Government also re-

spects the equitable pocrtioni of

"Mainly Limited Overs is
played in Kenya. As a nmtter of,
fact, I can say only 50 overs
cricket and now Twjenty20 com-
peti ions are played.
"Years ago, I understand
Kenya had a very good coach-
ing system in place where lots
of the coaches were on the pay-
roll. They went into the schools
and did a lot of coaching. That
system has now disintegrated-
Also in the past during the late
90s the team had sponsorship
from the Major B~eer Company,
but somewhere along the line
things didn't work out and the
sponsorship was not renewed."
Harper believes that cre-
ating a very competitive atmo-
sphere among players
whereby they have stiff com-
petition as they vie for places
on the team is one of the
ways forward for Kenya
The former G;uyana cap-
tain who also had a stint as
coach of the West Indies does
not rule out the possibly of
returning to the job.
"As a West Indian I would
really like nothing better than
being involved in co~aching and
contributing to the development
of West Indies cricket. and if the
opportunity arises to coach the
WI again this is something I
would seriously consider. I
would really like to see W1
cricket return to the top".
In his estimation 'there is a
lot to be done to W1 cricket if
we hope to get out of the cur-
rent poor state .
"Implementing a long-
term comprehensive plan is a
necessity. We are the only big
Test-playing nation that does
not have a comprehensive de-
velopment plan. We are be-
hind time is an understate-

that level of competitiveness
and dominance, in say, five to
six years down the lime. What
we keep hearing are reviews and
making new plans". Harper
"We haven't implemented

"During that period the
territories fulfilled their obli-
gations of developing and pro-
ducling quality players. Now
everyone is looking to the
WICB. It must be the duty of
the territories to produce
quality cricketers for WI.
Harper also questioned
whether there is a plan, in
Guyana. to produce the next
Rohan Kanhai, Clive Llo~yd or
Alvin Kallicharmn.
"When the territories start
fulfilling their obligations. W1
cricket will return to the top.
We need to do a lot more work
instead of just sitting back and
waiting for things-to happen.
Maybe we are awaiting some
miracle to transform our play-
"We must get more techni-
cal people involved in making.
technical decisions and review-
ing technical skills.
"Look at what England
did after being soundly
beaten by Australia. They
had a lot of people reviewing
and analysing their perfor-
mances. And look who they
had, a lot of recent past cap-
tains, three of whom are cur-
rent commentators. These
people had first-hand knowl-
edge and information on
what went on, but more im-
portantly these are people
who were involved with the

gamle at the highest level.
"We have to recreate the
molldel we had in the past which

what your skills are, doesn't

how to use them. Players must

"The best players in the

them as often because they
know how' to conceal them.
They know what their

"The players must appre-

A listening and discussion group in session

This week 's episodes

will leave audiences


A very special episode of Merundoi is to be broadcast on ra-
dio this week.
The successful radio serial will move in unexpected directions
on July 2, 3 and 4, with a massive and exciting twist that will leave
its audience breathless for approximately 13 minutes, according to
the serial's Managing Editor Ms. Margaret Lawrence.
Needless to say, the large following that Merundoi has attracted
will be waiting with bated breath for this highly charged episode.
Meroundi, of course, is the serial currently on air that deals
w~ith behavioral issues and change, all in a truly Guyanese context
that makes the story relevant to all.
The producers thought that the radio drama should
have a truly Guyanese name, and so they turned for ad-
vice to Dr. Desrey Fox, who was then involved in
Amerindian Affairs at the Jyniversity of Guyana, and she
came uyi with the Akawaio word that means hope,
stamina, energy and strength.
A CDC initiative, Merundoi's mission is to work creatively with
all media, groups and individuals to motivate individuals and com-
munities to make choices that reduce their vulnerabvility and en-
courage positive behaviour changes to reduce transmission of HIV.
Meroundi was launched on October 16, 2006, with two 15
minute episodes aired twice weekly on local FM and medium wave
channels, with an omnibus at the weekend.
Feedback finds Guyanese saying of Merundoi: The charac-
ters are just like us", "It's like listening to my own life", and "This
is for all Guyanese."
The behavioral issues addressed by Merundoi include delayed
initiation/abstinence, monogamy/faithfulness, positive parent and

There is ongoing and systematic monitoring to measure
audience reaction to Merundoi while the radio drama is on
air, and to provide feedback to the creative team, as well as
periodic evaluation to measure changes in knowledge, attitude
and behaviors among listeners.
As such, one would find the Merundoi writers in schools, mar-
ket places, bars, in the streets and down back alleys.
"This is essential to keep the story real and dynamic", the pro-

these may help us to see where the continuous availability and public showing of classic Hol-
lywood films like "BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK," and a thousand others of a similar critical
nature, can safeguard the civilized development of Guyana.
Meanwhile I, like my other childhood friends of our Shell Road and Barr street neighbourhood,
had reached that age of 12 when new friends and new experiences begin to be explored: I found myself
on mid-days and afternoons drifting down Barr street into a new neighbourhood where I met and
became friends with two other boys of my age: Nehru,a Hindu boy of multi-talents, who took care of
his family's yard and herded sheep from a nearby pasture (now called Camp Ayangana), also Richard,
the negro son of a shop owner across the street from Nehru's yard..
It was the time of the 80 days strike in 1962, when a total shutdown of the civil service, big
.businesses, markets, and schools occurred. Only cinemas thrved, mainly at 1 pm matinees,
since there were night curfews. Yet for boys like NehrP, Richard 'and myself, and also Debra, a
beautiful girl our age, mixed with East Indian and Amerindian, who had moved into a bottom
flat owned by Nehru's family, dur first hint of a life of cultural, educational, and personal
pleasure was about to reveal itself.
It happened that Richard often sent Nehru and me to 1pm matinees with money taken from his
father's shop which he was left to teh~d, preventing him from attending with us. However, Richard
would only finance matinee' bills for films he had not seen. His idea was that Nehru add I would relate
the stories of the films we had seen while we sat in the late afternoon in our checkered shirts taken
form cowboy films with Alan Ladd, George Montgomery, Audie Murphy Imder a guava tree at Nebru's

gaeThis process sharpened our descriptive and story-telling skils. One afternoon while engrossed in
relating film-stories inspired by cinema-going, we saw Debra in sandals, short skirt and tight blouse
walk out"the yard and down Barr street on some errand for her mother.
Just as we paused to admire her beautiful slow flounce, a recent 'pp song began to play on
neighbourhood radios. The song was called "Debra" the same as her name, and we watched
her sway by as this song floated in the air. It was a magical moment where what was foreign,
like the films we saw, achieved perfect harmony with what was local. The moment left us si-
lently stunned with pleasure.

a year. He was credited with taking the anaesthetic agent curare to Europe and
taking "taxidermy from a sorry handicraft to an art" his creations were 'perfect and
extraordinary lifelike', takigg back to England after his third trip to Guiaha 'two hun-
dred and thirty birds, two land tortoises, five armadillos, two large serpents, a sloth,
an ant-bear, and a cayman'.
He was an early opponent to pollution, successfully fighting for the removal of the soap factories
around his estate that emitted poisonous chemicals which damaged the trees and waterways.
Waterton had a road and a school (Waterton Junior and Infant school) named in his honour, for
according to Gerald Durrell, Waterton 'was a man who did no harm to the world he lived in, but
enhanced it by his presence and his care for it'.
Charles Waterton was the Squire of Walton Hall, Yorkshire, and manager to Walton Hall, Essequibo'
British Guiana. He first came to British Guiana in 1804 to manage his uncle's estates, Friendship and
La Jealousy, on the West Coast of Demerara, at a time when yellow fever was wreaking havoc with-
the population. Coffins were a constant flow out of the city of Georgetown.
Between 1812 and 1824l, he made four forays into the jungle of Gulana; the best days of his
life 'where a man would lose his senses, and forget the world, and enjoy the silence and solid
tude of the forest
There are many reasons for his expedition into the jungles of Guiana. One, he was a changed man,
a more humane man, after dealing with the slaves on the plantations. So much so that he said one had
to have had a heart of stone to defend slavery. In a way he contributed to emancipation; he taught the
most important science of the day, taxidermy, to John Edmonstone, a freed African slave who went to
England and in turn imparted the art to Charles Darwin.
And the other reason for exploring the virgin forest of Guiana was bound up in the fact that an
acquaintance, Sir Joseph Banks, encouraged Waterton to bring back samples of curare in order to ex-
periment with the substance as a curative agent for certain aliments.
Waterton was born at Walton Hall, West Yorkshire, England, on June 3, 1782. He was edus
cated at a newly founded primary school at Thdhoe and newly founded Stonyhurst College in
Lancashire, both Catholic institutions. The family Waterton remained Catholic despite perse-
cution during the English Reformation. At an early age, he was attracted to nature. This inter-
est was encouraged at Stonyhurst
His first foreign trip, to Malaga, like many subsequent voyages, was not smooth sailing, he es-
caped the black plague slighted wounded. His adlment triggered his sojourn to warmer climes in British
Guiana. His adventures were captured in an immensely popular book, 'Wanderings in South America',
published in 1826. It was translated into French, Dutch and Spanish and endorsed by Dickens, Dar-
win and Roosevelt. It would be useful to know that 'Wanderings in South America' was not meant to
be a text-book, but as Waterton declared, he only 'penned down a few words' t6 encourage naturalists
to explore.
After his wanderings, he settled at Walton Hall, England, and got married to A~nne
Edmonstone, at whose christening he was present on the Mibiri Creek, British Guiana. The
union produced one son, Edmund, who was opposite in nature to his father and at whose feet
lay the blame for the loss of a great deal of information on Charles Waterton.

irrelevant issues into consideration in coming to his conclusion.

According to the Full Court, a husband cannot put an end to
constructive desertion on his part, unless he proves genuine repen-
tance and sincere and reasonable attempts to get wife back.
The cases of Bowron v.' Bowron (1925) Probate 195, and Tho-

The appeal by Stephen De Florimonte was from the decision

There was no appearance by or on behalf of the respondent..
Justice Luckhoo, who delivered the judgment of the Full Court,
had said among other things:
"When this appeal came on for hearing, counsel for the appelant
abandoned his contention that the evidence did not establish a case
of desertion.
"This is a case in which the magistrate found that the husband
(appellant) by a long course of cruel conduct towards his wife drove
her from hone.
"The appellant, in one of his grounds of appeal, complained
that the magistrate had wrongly admitted evidence of acts of cru-

ago, on October
11, history was
Made in the field
of dentistry in Guyana.
Seven dental nurses
graduated which resulted in their
numbers surpassing for the first
time that of the dentists
operating in the Pubic Sector. It
seems obvious that this trend
would be entrenched. Today'

the Cheddi Jagan Dental Centre
(CHDC), in four categories, in
order to supplement oral care
services nationwide. The public
at large must therefore begin to
acknowledge the vital
responsibility of these health
workers in the community.
The role of Dental Auxiliary
Practitioners (DAP) as part of
the health team is of increasing
interest worldwide, especially in
developing countries. This is
due, in large part, to a growing
acceptance of the importance of
oral health as a part of total
hath r nwed enhaisa o

goals. and recognition of DAP
as a major resource for

accomplishing these goahl.
Dental An \.iliary
Practitioners constitute onle of
the largest and fastest growing
groups of oral health service
providers. They practise
primarily as clinicians and
health professionals. Their work
involves the use of preventive
and therapeutic (treatment)
methods to promote health and

The United States, where
the profession originated nearly
a century ago, now has over
200,000 DAPs usually referred
to generally aIs dental hygienists.
In Canada, Denmark, The
Netherlands and Norway, some
dental nurses work as
administrators, consultants and
researchers. Women

The months of intense
training at the CHDC
involves many courses which
even include ethics,
administration, psychology
and computer studies, and
are structured to produce a
competent professional. After
graduating, some DAPs
would be capable of heading
a dental department at any
interior location or school
although their mandate
entails treating persons 17
years and below.

of the world's dental nurse
The work of DAPs is
consistent with preset
service requirements and
future-oriented health
planning. Suck planning
emphasises, for example,
health promotion and self
care, improved access to
preventive services for high-
risk population groups, and
increased technical
efficiency in the use of
scarce resources. Our
circumstances have

on a mere request by the appellant and a refusal by the
respondent, but in view of the circumstances of this case.
The magistrate was not dealing with a case of a mere withdrawal
of a wife from cohabitation without any cause, where the refusal
to accept a genuine offer by the husband to resume cohabitation
would turn his wife into a deser-ter.
HeL hadlt to consider the blusband's conduct as a whole, in decidl-
ing! lhut! lie wife's refusal to return was not without ~just cause.
I; rd b:1~ othl wife and husband and believed the wife who
stllaI:i h er' husband saidl if she went ba~ck to theC maltrimoniall
hon!, :: u~:ld take the gallows f~r her-.
Justice of Appeal Luckhoo noted, "Lord Justice Scrutton in
BOWRON vBOWRON (1925) Probate atp. 195 said,"Where
there was original cruelty and expressed intention to force the wife
to leave, i do not think that the fact that there is no cruelty or
expressed intention after she leaves prevents the desertion from
continuing. The intention is presumed to continue, unless the hus-
band proves genuine repentance and sincere and reasonable attempts
to get his wife back."
Justice) Luckhboo's judgment added, "In considering genuine re-
pentance and sincerity on part of the appellant, the magistrate had
to decide upon the evidence before him, what weight and empha-
sis were to be given to and placed upon the appellant's cruelty,
and his threat in case she returned home.
Judge Luckhoo observed that the magistrate decided upon
all those facts before him and must have estimated the qual-
ity of .appellant's action on the 31st day of December, 1945,
when matrimonial relations ceased to exist, by reference to
his conduct generally. Appellant's subsequent efforts to get
his wife to return home must be measured by the same test.
SHe noted that in THOMAS v THOMAS (1923) 129 L.T. 575
the same qifestion arose. Th~at was a case in which the husband
had driven his wife from home by cruel conduct and sought to bring
that state of what is called constructive desertion to an end by a
mere offer to resume cohabitation. The Divisional Court held in
those circumstances such an offer was derisory, and was not suffi-
cient to put an end to the state of desertion.. This judgment was
upheld by the Court of Appeal (1924) Probate 194.
Justice Luckhoo added "We are of opinion that the magistrate
acted on a right principle in holding that there was no genuine offer
of reconciliation on part of the appellant such as would put an
end to the desertion.
The appeal is dismissed and the Order made by the mag-
istrate is affirmed.

By Ed Harris
BOIS CHERI, Mauritius (Reuters) The remains of a dodo
found in a cave beneath bamboo and tea plantations in
Mauritius offer the best chance yet to learn about the extinct
flightless bird, a scientist said on Friday*
The discovery- wais made earlier this month in thie Mauritian
highlands bitt the location was kept secret until the recovery of the
skeleton, micknamed "Fred", was completed on Friday. Four men
guarded the site overnight.
Julian Hume, a paleontologist an Britain's Natural History Mu-

remains to the surface.
Given the nickname "Fred" after the 65-year-old who
found them, the remains should provide the first decent speci-

"Then you can work out how it actually got to Mauritius, be-
cause it mthst have originally flown here before evolving into

The Group is also expected
to address strategies for the

such as National Service, Na-

drainage and irrigation, economic
programs and the many other
matters raised during the MSF

was a significant development
in the ERC's thrust in support-
ing moves towards making MSF
recommendations a reality .
She recounted that the
process towards greater citi-
zen participation in policy
and policy reform had started
with the Conflict 'Itansforma-
tion Workshops in 2005, and
then the Multi Stakeholders
Meetings held countrywide
in 2006.
Held with the support of
the United Nations Develop-
ment Program (UNDP), the
theme of these meetings were
"Enhancing social cohesion by
deepening participatory democ-
racy through dialogue" .
The Caucuses had been
held at one hundred and forty
three venues countrywide and
at Regional Conferences ih all
ten Administrative Regions.
Participants had raised a
wide range of issues, includ-
ing crime and law enforce-
ment, health, drainage and
infrastructure, youth devel-
opment, accessible transpor-
tation in riverain 'areas, edu-
cation, telecommunications,
electrification and manage-
ment of the Regional and

Participants had also com-

closer racial integration, equal
opportunities to resources and
employment, improved law en-
forcement performance, an effi-

provements in infrastructure and
the economy.
The National Conversation
in November discussed the rec-
ommendations of the MSF and
then decided to form the Work-
ing Group ensure that these
recommendations did not fall
by the wayside.
The mandate of the MSF

ing Group is to decide on a
road map for the implemen-

tions on the multiplicity of
issues affecting Guyanese

which were raised and re-
corded during the MSF
The Group should be able
to decide not only by saying
what should be done, but how
it should be done and who
should do it, Chairman of the
ERC Bishop Juan Edghill had
said on its formation.
The Group, scheduled to

took another step towards
ensuring that
recommendations made at
countrywide Multi
Stakeholder Fora (MSF) in
2006 are implemented .
The recent action was the
training of members of the
Working Group which was
formed to ensure that the rec-
ommendations are implemented,
in advocacy and lobbying skills.
The Working Group is made
up of representatives of all ten
Regions, one representative
from each parliamentary politi-
cal party and one member from
each of the seven constituencies
represented on the ERC .
The seven constituencies
include cultural and religious
groups, ethnic based organiza-
tions, labor, private sector
youth and women.
The training took the form
of a two-day workshop at the
Grand Coastal Inn, Le
Ressouvenir, East Coast
Demerara, a little over a week
ago, Public Relations Officer of
the ERC, Ms Tusankine En-
glish, reported.
Funded by the United
States Agency for International
Development (USAID), the
workshop was held under the
theme: "Moving forward Multi-
Stakeholder Fora (MSF) recom-
mendations .".
It aimed at deepening the
understanding of participants
on the role of advocacy as an
approach to change.
It also aimed at develop.
ing their knowledge and
skills to advocate or lobby
specifically for the policy re.
form recommendations which
flowed from the MSF process
in 2006.
Ms Bonita Harris served as
facilitator and topics discussed
during the program included:
behaviour change communica-
tion, community mobilization,
public relations, advocacy and
steps to be followed in the
planning of an advocacy cam-

Sonia Noel's Guyano Fashion Weekend...

SONIA Noel is traversing the Caribbean at all the
headliner fashion shows from her Barbados home.
These days they are mistaking her for a Bajan.
It is true to say that since she adopted Barbados as her home-
base, her work has catapulted her to new heights, but she is cer-
tainly not letting~go of her real home Guyana.
In fact, Sonia is in downtown Georgetown preparing for prob-

ably her biggest gig yet, and with this she intends to make further
headlines for herself and for Guyana.
Her plans to stage the first ever Guyana Fashion Weekend is
meeting with nothing but hurrahs from the highest level here.
President Bharrat Jagdeo has come on board as patron of the
event, and Sonia could not hope for more.
To boot, Minister of Tourism Manniram Prashad, and Min-
ister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr. Frank Anthony, are also
backing the event.
The mega event billed for August 24-26, with the first day in-
cluding a launch party at Cara Lodge, followed by two nights of
runway extravagance at Buddy's International Hotel.

Kensington Palace, her ford~ier home, has placed on dis-

U.N.'s International Metcorological Orgumization.
"1( isnl't far behlindl ... it could changes, but at the moment this looks unlikely," he told Reuters,
based on temp~eratur~e records up to the end of' April.
Jones had predicated late last year that 2007 could surpass 19)98 as the warmest year on record
due to rising conceletmti ns of greenhouse ga~ses emitted mainly by burning fossil fuels and an El
Almost all climate experts say that the trend is towards more droughts, floods, heatwaves and
more powerful storms. But they say that individual extreme events are not normally a sign of
global warming because weather is, by its nature, chaotic.
"Severe events are going to be more frequent," said Salvano Briceno, director
of the Geneva-based secretariat of the U.N. International Strategy for Disaster Re-.
The 10 warmest years in the past 150 years have all licen since 1990. Last year ranked number
six according to the IMO. NASA, which uses slightly different data, places 2005 as warmest ahead
of 1998.

Afgmnongne trem e ents, more than 500 people have died in storms and floods in Pakistan,
Temperatures in Greece reached 46 C (114.80Fi) this week as pari of a heatoate across parts
of southern Europe. Parts of China have also had a heat wave in recent days.
And torrential rains have battered northern England and parts of Texas, where Austin has had
its wettest year oin record so far.
SThe U.N. climate panel, drawing on the work of 2,500 scienrists. said this year' thal it was
"very likely" that human activities led by use of fossd fuels wrere the main caucce of a warming in
the past half-century.
It gave a "best estimate" that temperatures will rise 1:8-4.0 Ce~lsiui I3.2 an~d 7 8 Fahrenheit)
this century.
Briceno told Reuters that the world had to work out better policies to prepare for disas-
ters, saying that climate change was adding to already increasing risks faced by a rising
human population of about 6.6 billion people.
Irrespective of warming, many people were cramming into onlcs I, fr insane. senling In plans:

In Germany, average temperatures for the 12 months to May 2007 smashed records for the
past century, raising questions about whether climate change was quickenmng, the Potsdam Insti-

also on young tender stems and
growing points. They suck
plant sap and make the plant
weak; some also act as vectors
of plant diseases. Seedlings are
weakened and killed when the
infestation is high, and growth
of older infested plants is re-
tarded. Infested leaves curl,
shrivel and may turn brown and
die. Aphids secrete a sweet sub
stance known as "honey dew'
while they feed. This substance
attracts ants and serves as a sub-
strate for sooty mould (black
fungus), thus impairing photo-
synthesis. The lifecycle is be-
tween 21-28 days.
Control: Both cultural, bio-
logical and chemical controls
method are recommended.
Remember, the natural
predator lady bird beetle fre-
quently feeds on aphids.
When the aphid population is
low and lady bird beetles are
present, there is no need for
chemical control.
This may be applied when
the population is high. A con-
tact or stomach insecticide may
be used such as Fastac, Decis or
Karate at 6mls to 4500mis wa-
ter, Sevin 85% W.P. (Carbaryl)
at 6grms to 4500 mis water,
Malathion 57% E.C. at 15 mis
to 4500 mis water.

N.B. Sprays should be di-
rected to undersidelsurfaces
of leaves. When Sevin or
Malathion is used crops must
not be harvest until 7 -10

days after application of these
chemicals. In the case of
Fastac, Decis or Karate, crops
can be harvested within 3-5
days after chemical applica-

4. Flea beetle
Epitrix pilosa: (Coleoptera:
These are small black
beetles about 1.5 2.0 mm in
size that cause severe damage
mostly to the leaves or
Boulanger plants. They make
numerous round or irregular tiny
holes on the leaves giving them
a stramner like appearance, thus
reducing photosynthesis. These
insects (adults) can be observed
on the uppermost portion of the
plant, usually on the young ten-
der leaves during the early morn-
ing and late afternoon hours.
They hide during the hot part
of the day. Eggs are laid in the
soil near the roots of the plant.
These hatch in 5-7 days and the
slender white larvae feed on the
roots for 14-21 days. Because
of the small sizes, feeding does
not interfere with plant growth
and development. Adult beetles
emerge approximately 28 days
from the soil. During a severe
adult infestation, leaves appear
scorched. Such an infestation
can result in substantial yield
loss and plants may be killed in
one to three days.
Control:Both cultural and
chemical controls method are
When the infestation level is
high chemical control is recom-
mended. Insecticides such as
Decis, Fastac or Karate (6
mis to 4500 mls water), Sevin
(85% W.P at 10gms to 4500 mis
water), Sumithion (50%
E.C. at 5mis to 4500 mls wa-

ter) are recommended.

5. Lace wing bugs
Croythaica cyathicollis:
(Hemiptera: Tingidae)
Lace wing bugs are usually
found in clusters on the under
surface of leaves. Adults are
about 1.5 -3 mm in length and
have characteristic lacy pat-
terned wings. Their sucking at~-
tion results in leaf mottling. The
mottled areas eventually become
necrotic and this leads to pre-
mature abscission of leaves. The
life cycle lasts for approxi-
mately 28-35 days.

Control: Both cultural and
chemical controls method are
Decis, Karate or Fastac at 6
mis to 4500 mis water Sevin or
Padan at 5gms to 4500 water
are recommended.

6. Pin worm
Keiferia lycopersicella:
(Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)
Pin worm is a common pest
of Boulanger. It is the caterpil-
lar of a moth, which feeds on
leaf surfaces, making blotch
nunes mn the leaves. Leaves are
often rolled or folded, such that
the larvae are protected from
natural enemies. In severe infes-
tations, leaf surfaces are de-
stroyed causing leaves to wither
and die. The larvae can also
mine in stems and feed on
flowers, thus reducing.
yields. The larvae can also in-
vade fruits and destroy them.
The adult is a grey moth
about 5mm long. The larvae;
which at first are light-orange in
colour, become purplish-black
at maturity and are about 5mm
long. Eggs are laid primarily on
the tinderside of leaves and
hatch within 5-7 days. Pupa-

tion may occur in the soil, or in
folded leaves. The lifecycle may
be completed in 21-35 days.

Control: Both cultural and
chemical controls method are
Decis; Fastac; Karate or
Ambush at 6 mis to 4500 mis
water are recommended.

7. White flies
Bemisia tabaci (Homoptera:
These insects are in fact
bugs. The adults are white,
moth-like insects that fly up-
wards from plant when dis-
turbed. They are about 2 mm in
length and their wings are cov-
ered with a white waxy powder.
The pinhead size nymphs are
oval and flattened, and are at-
tached to the leaf surface until
maturity. All stages of this pest
can be found on the underside
of leaves. Nymphs and adults
feed by sucking plant sap, re-
sulting in leaves becoming
mottled, yellow and brown be-
fore dying. Feeding whiteflies
excrete honey dew on leaf sur-
face which encourages the
growth of sooty mould, thus
hampering photosynthesis.
Ants are also attracted to the
honey due. This pest is also a
vector for viral diseases. The life
cycle may be completed in
about 28-35 days.

black pinhead-size insects.
They are soft bodied, slow
moving and multiply rapidly

include Admire, Pegasus and or Basudin/ Vydate L at 10 mis to 4500 mls water.
8. Mites
eitts rayl arcph id n aeT (ti ets ()Adults have four palirs of' legs and two pairs of eyes.)
They are extremely tiny and appear as dust- like particles on the underside of leaves. Their colour
ranges from red, translucent fawn to green. Eggs are laid on the underside of' leaves and hatch beneath a
web, which is spun by the adults. Both immature and mature stages suck plant sap, resulting in leaves
becoming yellow and eventually turning reddish. Fruits mnay also be affected, especially by the rust
Control: Both cultural and chemical controls method are recommended.
During severe infestations chemical control may become necessary. Any miticide may be used for
their control such as Abamectin, Newmeetinor, Vertimec at 5mls to 4500mis ,
9. Thrips
Frankiniella sp. (Thysanoptera: Thripidae)
Thrips are yellow, tiny, elongated insects about Imm in length and can be found on the upper and
lower surfaces of leaves. Infestations are more severe in the dry season. Both young and adult suck the
sap from leaves and cause them to lose their colour. If attack occurs early the young leaves becomes

discoloured, distorted and hardened. Thrips are also vectors for major viral disease. The lifecycle may
be completed in about 14-21 days.
Control: Both cultural and chemical controls method are recommended,
Overhead irrigation will help in reducing populations of thrips during the dry season.
An integrated approach is recommended for the management of thrips.
Among the insecticides which may be used are Regent (Fipronil). Admire, Abameetin and Vydate

10. Stem borer
Alcidion deletum: (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
This insect usually attacks old Boulanger plants where a particular shoot of the plant is observed
to wither and dry out. The adult is cream to light fawn in colour and about 1-2 cm long. Damage is
usually done by the larva (grub) which is white in colour, with a hard brown head and is about 3.5 5
cm in length Removal and stripping of dead shoots will reveal the larvae inside a tunnel. The insects
continue to live in dead plant tissues/residues and thus become a source of infestation for new uninfested
fields. Stem borer can cause death in as much as 50% of plant population, because when larvae tunnel
into the main stem, the entire plant dies. The life cycle ranges from 35-70 days.
Control: Crop rotation- cultivation of vegetables that are not hosts to the pest.
11. Fruit ucking bugs
Nezara vinidula: (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)
Phthia picta: (Hemiptera: Coreidae)
There are various species of plants bugs. They actually do the same type of damage by puncturing
and sucking the sap from leaves, flowers and fruits. Affected fruits become discolored, hardened and
deformed, thus the market value of the fruits is reduced. Nezara commonly known as "stink bug" is
green in colour and about 1.5 2 cm is recognized by its shield-shaped body and awful protective
odors emitted when molested. The Phthia are brownish black bugs with a red band across the back
of the thorax and are about 2-2.5 cm in length. Both the adult and nymphs of this pest do incur
econonuc losses. The life cycle ranges from 35-70 days.
Control: Both cultural and chemical controls method are recommended.
Among the insecticides which may be used are Fastac, Decis, Karate, Ambush at 6 mis to
4500 mis water and Sevin at 10 gms to 4500 mls water.

ARIES -- Make sure you keep your wits about you today -- and stay ready
to defend yourself. Some petty, jealous people might try to cast some of your
recent actions in an unflattering light, and the.longer you ignore these folks.
the harder it will be to prove them wrong. Protecting your reputation should
be one of your top concerns today, so delay any other responsibilities you
may have. Take care of yourself -- and your public persona -- first.

.TAURUS -- For stability and harmony today, seek out the company of friends
who have known you a long time. They will make you feel more grounded
and content. Avoid wild adventures right now and say 'no thanks' to any in-
vitations to new or mysterious places. It's best if you try to get back in touch
with the simpler things in life. Besides, these good friends of yours would
love a chance to spend some more time with you. All of your relationships
could use a lot more of your attention.

GEMINI -- The easy life is not for you today -- you are in the mood for a
challenge, and you might just be given a very intriguing one today. You are
learning (slowly but surely) to appreciate the fact that a goal that's easy to
attain is not as fulfilling as a hard-won victory can be. So take the more diffi-
cult route today -- it could tax your energy to the maximum.1imit, but it will
reward you with a great pride that will feed your ego in a powerful way.

CANCER --' When trying to help a sad friend, you need to do more than
merely listen and provide a shoulder to cry on. You also need to pay atten-
tion to what you hear -- and act on it. So if you think that the best cure for a
pal's blues is a hot night out on the town, but she or he doe n~'t feeling like
going out, don't force the issue. You can't ask people to deny their feelings.
If you do, you run the risk of making them believe that you find them burden-

LEO -- Some insecure people whom you know (and love) are feeling esp-
clally sensitive today, so be careful not to hurt their feelings -- doing so may
be even easier than usual. While you don't relish the sensation of walking on
eggshells around them, just try to give them their space throughout the day.
Your~ happiness is important to them, but be aware that if you talk too much
about your recent accomplishments, you could seem somewhat arrogant

VIRGO -- Working with another person today will be just as much fun as
you were expecting it to be, but it could also create a critical turning point in
your life. If you are ready for change, it is ready for you. You are all set to
have a good time with creative brainstorming, and you will definitely not be
disappointed. However, your tasks will not be all about play. There is some
serious advancement going on in your life, and this transition is no laughing

LIBRA -- Every single choice -- and every single mistake -- that you've made
in your past has helped deliver you to where you are right now in your life.
Your past might be behind you, but it will always be a part of you. Today
you'll get to use some things that long-ago trials and tribulations taught you
-- but those distant dramas will now seem terrifically amusing. Time heals all
wounds, and it evens adds an aspect of humor to the bad times.

SCORPIO -- A very important decision must be made today, and you might
not have as much input as you would like. Your power in this particular situa-
tion is fading, so you probably shouldn't try to force the issue. Attempting to
flex muscles that you don't have could make you look quite silly. A little bit of
self-control will pay off big down the line, when you will be remembered as
being a very reasonable and level-headed person.

SAGITTARIUS -- It takes real talent to come up with new ideas, and you
have got it in spades today! Your original mind, coupled with your ability to
express yourself clearly and succinctly, is going to get you noticed and earn
you a lot of respect from the people around you. This is a great time for you
to step into a leadership position, because people are hanging on your every
word and eager to do just about anything you tell them to do. Be magnani-
mous with your power.

CAPRICORN -- You'll get some clear signs today that your plans are work-
ing -- and working well! Use this positive reinforcement to raise your spirits
and help you weather the ups aund downs that are coming your way today.
There's no reason to let anything dampen your good mood, not even a grumpy
sourpuss or two. Flash them a smile and tell them not to get discouraged. Tell
them that if they simply follow your example, they'll soon be smiling just like

AQUARIUS -- Sometimes having restrictions put on you can help you, in-
stead of hindering you. So if you're feeling as though your hands are tied
today, do not try to free yourself. Accept the parameters you're given, be-
cause they will spark your creativity and force you to be even more innova-
tive than you normally are. Necessity is the mother of invention, and you're
enteringea situation where you need to get things done, whether other people

PISCES -- Some very interesting news is coming down from one of yourl
friends in high places today, so get ready to rearrange your schedule so youl
can take advantage of some new social opportunities. You are going to I-e

This is inordination of zeal; for Christ, by reproving

When Abraham sat at his tent door, according to his
custom, waiting to entertain strangers, he espied an old
man, stopping and leaning on his staff, weary with age
and travel, coming towards him, who was a hundred
years of age. He received him kindly, washed his feet,
provided supper, caused him to sit down, but observing
that the old man ate and prayed not nor begged a bless-
ing on his meat, he asked him why he did not worship
the God of Heaven. The old man told him that he wor-
shipped the fire only, and acknowledged no other god.
At which answer Abraham grew so zealously angry that
he trust the old man out of his tent, and exposed him to
all the evils of the night and an unguarded condition.
When the old man had gone, God called to Abraham
and asked him where the stranger was. He replied, "I
trust him away because he did not worship thee." God
answered him, "I have suffered him all these hundred
years, although he dishonoured me: and couldst thou not
endure him one night?"

Let's pay attention to checking subject and verb
agreement. This places emphasis that a verb must
agree with its subject in person and number. Number
can be singular or plural. Smngular words indicate one
and take a singular verb. Plural words indicate more
than one and take a plural verb.
To show agreement, most verbs change form only
in the present tense: when the verb is in the third per-
son singular, an -s (or -es) is added to the base verb.

Singular: She dresses. Plural: They dress.
There, however, is an exception where the linking

past tense.

Example :
Singular: The singer is professional. Plural: The

Excerpt A .

It was a hard hit, and Bathsheba had. unmistakably
i ast her temper, and on that account, Gabriel had never
in1 his life kept his own better. He said nothing. She
toen broke out -
"I may ask, I suppose, where in particular my un-
onihiness lies? In my not marrying you, perhaps?"
"Not by any means," said Gabriel quietly. "I have
mng given up thinking of that matter."
"Or wishing it, I suppose," she said; and it was
parent that she expected an unhesitating denial of this
Ipposition .. 'n "~ 'c

Whatever Gabriel felt, he coolly echoed her
words "Or wishing it either."

A woman may be treated with a bitterness that is
sweet to her, and with a r-udeness which is not offen-
sive. Bathsheba would have submitted to an indignant
chastisement for her levity had Gabriel protested that
he was loving her at the same time; the impetuosity of
passion unrequited is bearable, even if it stings and
anathematizes there is a tr-iumph in the humiliation, and
a tenderness in the strife. This was what she had been
expecting, and what she had not got. To be lectured
because the lecturer saw her in the cold morning light
of open-shuttered distillation was exasperating. He had
not finished, either. He continued in a more agitated

"My opinion is (since you ask it) that you are
greatly to blame for playing pranks upon a man like Mr.
Boldwood, merely as a pastime. Leading on a man you
don't care for is not a praiseworthy action. And even,
Miss Everdene, if you seriously incline towards him, you
might have let him find it out in some way of true lov-
ing-kindness, and not by sending him a valentine's let-

Bathsheba laid down the shears.
"I cannot allow any man to to criticize my pri-
vate conduct!" she exclaimed. "Nor will I for a minute.
So you'll please leave the farm at the end of the week!"
It may have been a peculiarity at any rate it
was a fact that when Bathsheba was swayed by an
emotion of an earthly sort her lower lip trembled: when
by a refined emotion, her upper lip or heavenward one.
Her nether lip quivered now.
"Very well, so I will," said Gabriel calmly. He
had been held to her by a beautiful thread which it pained
him to spoil in breaking, rather than by a chain he could
not break. "I should. be even better pleased to -go at
once," he added.
"Go at once then, in Heaven's name!" said she,
her eyes flashing at his, though never meeting them.
"Don't let me see your face any more."
"Very well, Miss Everdene so it shall be."
And he took his shares and went away from her
in placid dignity, as Moses left the presence of Pharaoh.

Excerpt -B

Any zeal is proper for religion, but the zeal of the
sword and the zeal of anger; this is the bitterness of
zeal, and it is a certain temptation to every man against
his duty; for if the sword turns preacher and dictates
propositions by empire inster d of arguments, and en-
graves them in men's hearts with a~poignard, that it shall
be death to believe what l innocently and ignorantly am
persuaded of, it must needs be unsafe to try the spirits,
to try all things, to make inquiry; and yet, without this
liberty, no man can justify himself before God or man,
or confidently say that his religion is best; since he can-
not without a final danger make himself to give a right
sentence, and to follow that which he finds to be the
best. They may ruin souls by making hypocrites or

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Even in middle age, adopting
a healthy lifestyle can lower the risk for heart disease and
premature death within years of changing habits, research-
ers reported on Thursday.
Middle-aged adults who began eating five or more fruits and
vegetables every day, exercising for at least 2 1/2 hours a week,
keeping weight down and not smoking decreased their risk of
heart disease by 35 percent and risk of death by 40 percent in
the four years after they started.
"The adopters of a healthy lifestyle basically caught up.
Within four years, their mortality rate and rate of heart attacks
matched the people who had been doing these behaviors all
along," said Dr. Dana King at the Medical University of South
Carolina, who led the research.
That is not to say people should wait until their 40s or
50s to get on track. he added-
"LBut even if you have not had a healthy lifestyle pre-
viously, it's not too late to adopt those healthy lifestyle
habits and gain almost immediate benefits."
King and his team set out to find if late-starters could reap
the rewards of habits like eating vegetables and walking 30 min-
utes a day.
When they began tracking nearly 16,000 Americans between
the ages of 45 and 64 in the late 1980s, only 8.5 percent were
following all four of the habits they were studying, they re-
ported in the American Journal of Medicine.
fourat of ten or adeuhs, t8. 4per unt startedlpkrealticn l

up the fruit and vegetable habit at that late stage. Losing
weight to fall within the healthy to overweight range -
which the researchers counted as one of the healthy hab.
its was the least popular change.
When they had picked up all four habits, they enjoyed a
sharp decline in heart disease risk and in death from any cause-
It took all four having just three of the healthy habits
yielded no heart benefits and a more modest decrease in overall
risk of death.
Still, said Dr. Nichola Davis at the Albert Einstein College
of Medicine, "these benefits are on a continuum. The more of
the healthy habits that you can adapt, the better. ...These are
modest changes that they're talking about."
King's team took age, gender, race, and other risk catego-
ries for cardiovascular disease into account, although King said
the converts likely took up other healthy life changes such
as cutting down on salt or upping their calcium intake that
might have contributed to their health benefits.
He and Davis, who was not involved in the study, said they
were troubled so few Americans were doing them.
In particular, men, blacks, people with less education
and lower incomes, and people with high blood pressure
or diabetes were less likely to follow the health guidelines
from the beginning or adopt them later in life.

LONDON (Reuters Life!) With their thunderous, catchy
rhythms, samba-influenced dance routines and infectious en-
thusiasm, AfroReggae could be mistaken for just another Bra-
zilian band that has made it big abroad.
Except that all of the singers, dancers and percussionists wow-
ing the crowd in Lond~on's Barbican theatre this week with their
mix of hip-hop, rap and reggae grew up in Rio de Janeiro's violent
slums. Until a few years ago, several of them were making a living
dealing drugs.
"What I like most about AfroReggae is the opportunity to
change," says Mariana Rangel. a backing singer, smoothing out a
yellow dress sparkling in the theatre spotlights.
"It is very important for us to be role models, to be examples;
to show it doesn't matter where you were born, what you wear,
the color of your skin you can change."
Set up in the aftermath of a notorious 1993 massacre in the
Rio favela of Vigario Geral, Grupo Cultural AfroReggae is one of
Brazil's nast succe sul socal ojects.yotsaa rmRos

gangs with art and music, started as a newsletter dedicated to
black music and politics. It now works in five Rio communi-
ties and has 10 bands as well as circus and drama troupes and
runs countless dance, percussion, football and capoeira work-
AfroReggae's main band opened for the Rolling Stones on
Copacabana beach last year. They have toured Europe, sung with
legendary Brazilian star Caetano Veloso and a film on their work
-- "Favela Rising" won best documentary at the Tribeca Film
Festival in New York in 2005.
In Britain, they have spent the past weeks running workshops
with inner city schools to teach the "AfroReggae method".
But despite the group's successes, life in the favelas sprawled
across Rio's hillsides is still punctuated with bloodshed and mili-
tary-style police invasions.
This week, five hours of gunbattles in the Alemao favela in-
volved 1,350 police and troopers from a special force. Thirteen
people were killed and six injured; six more corpses were later found
in an abandoned car.
Police said the dead were all traffickers many favelas are

HOLLYWOOD Pop star Britney Spears has hand-deliv-
ered a lawyer's letter to her estranged mother--but it's
not a restraining order, according to reports.
The troubled singer reportedly fell out with her mom, Lynne,
earlier this year for being 'pushed' into rehab after months of
hard partying following her split from husband Kevin Federline.
Spears was spotted visiting a Valencia, California, movie set
on Thursday where her younger sister Jamie Lynn is currently
working, and was seen handing over a document to her mother
while exchanging a few brief words, before the 25-year-old
stormed back to her parked Mercedes,
Video footage of her impromptu visit has since surfaced on
the Internet.
Media reports allege Spears was serving her mother with a
restraining order, but TMZ.com claims it is actually a letter
from an out-of-state lawyer. The site claims the "Toxic" hitmaker
could not legally deliver such an order if she was the one seek-
in t
According to TMZ.com, the letter was a blunt request
to Lynne to keep her distance from Britney's two young
sons, 19-month-old Sean Preston and nine-month-old
Jayden James, if she is on medication that could "impair
her ability to be around them."
