BR IDGETO WN- -The
United States has suffered a
rebuff from the Secretary
General of the Organisation
of American States (OAS),
Jose Miguel Insulza, for the
hemispheric body to become
involved in the recent shut-
down of the privately-owned
Radio Caracas Television
(RCTV) by the government of
President Hugo Chavez
forced the closure of RCTV
with which there has been a
continuing hostile relationship
with his administration, by re-
fusing to renew its licence when
it expired last May, as he had
warned would be done.
RCTV has been leading a
virulent campaign against the
Chavez government, which it
claims to be a "dictatorship",
and has been urging its over-
throw in Vehezuela's "national
interest", as well as its barrage
of personal attacks on President
But, as disclosed by the
last Thursday, the US Perma-
nent Mission to the 35-member
hemispheric body called for in-
tervention in the RCTV-Venezu-
ela government dispute under
Articles 4 and 18 of the Inter-
American Democratic Charter.
However, under the Char-
ter, any initiative by the OAS
in a dispute involving a member

government's decision to shut-
While in Barbados for the
recent 28th CARICOM Sum-
mit, as head of the OAS delega-
tion, Insulza had stated, in re-
sponse to media questions, that
despite the ongoing "war of.
words" between Washington
and Caracas, which may have to
do with "ideological issues",
both countries "continue to have
very good trade relations".
The OAS Secretary General
had also noted that President
Chavez heads a lawfully elected
government based on interna-
tionally supervised elections.
Meanwhile, the OAS Sec-
retary General, ambassador
Albert Ramdin, who had ac-
companied Insulza to Barbados
for the CARICOM Summit,
has called for "greater regional
cooperation" to address spe-
cific security issues of interest
to the entire hemisphere.
Ramdin, the Suriname-born

GOVERNMENT has com-
pleted negotiations with the
World Bank for a Conser-
vancy Adaptation Project,
which should be ready for
signing and implementation
in October 2007, according to
Agriculture Minister Robert
Persaud said a World Bank
team has already submitted the
negotiated project to the Global
Environmental Facility for ap-
proval to obtain the UiS$3.8M
funding required to carry out
"Negotiations for this
project were completed on June
11 (and) the World Bank has in-
dicated its approval; signing and
implementation should be con-
cluded by the end of October
this year," Minister Persaud in-
formed Members of Parliament
during last Thursday's Sitting of
the National Assembly.
The Agriculture Minister
was responding to questions by
Alliance For Change (AFC)
Member of Parliament Mr.
Khemraj Ramjattan, on whether
there were any obstacles in the
negotiations between govern-
ment arid the World Bank in re-
lation to the project.

An extensive survey began

the extent of the use of asbes-
tos material on these buildings,
the amount and condition of the

Chairperson of the Asbes-

earlier in the week, said the sur-
vey is one of the measures be-

A few weeks ago the admin-

the Turkeyen Campus, and in
light of the health risks in-

efforts to address the problem
as early as possible.
According to UG, the sub-

The university said it has
been advised, and has already
acknowledged, that asbestos can
contribute to an unsafe environ-
ment and can be a health risk to
the inhabitants of buildings in
which the substance is present.
"The administration has al-
ready agreed that the best way of
treating the issue is to effect the re-
moval of this material from the
buildings as quickly as possible,"
UG said in a statement last month.

concerning the troublesome
inter-island airbridge, but
there is no word as to what
this will mean for the route's
only carrier, Tobago Express.
"The company has some
difficulties and the Governmenlt
is actively looking at a perma-
nent solution to the problem,"
Works and Transport Minister
Colm Imbcer said Friday.
Imbert said the Government
w~as close to a~ decision, as hle as-
serled it had to intervenle in
bringing an end to industrial ac-
tion by Tobago Express pilots
and flight attendants Friday.
"Well we're certainly not
going to allow this to con-
tinue, but to say what we are
doing is a bit premature. But
we will be taking decisive ac-
tion soon, but I don't want
to say what it is," Imbert
told the Express.
He made the assertion as he
disclosed the State was spend-
ing TT$36-$37 million on the
$100 subsidy to the $400
airbridgef1are for passengers for
the rest of this fiscal year.
Several Tobago Express
flight crews called in sick and
this forced a shut-down of the
carrier, and the airbridge service
for several hours yesterday
While the Tobago Express
management did not want to de-
f'ine yesterday's events as the
result of any deliberate action'
by its flight crews, Imbert said
he was informed that is exactly
what had happened.
"I was advised by my
Permanent Secretary that the
pilots for Tobago Express
were engaging in industrial
action, but they called it off
at about 11.30 (am)," Imbert
He said this resulted from a
team effort of high-ranking of-
ficials from his ministry and
two statutory bodies in the lo-
cal aviation sector,
"My Permanent Secre-
tary spoke to the management
of Tobago Express. We got the
Civil Aviation Authority in-
volved, we got the Airports
Authority involved and the
ministry itself got involved
and the pilots called off their
industrial action and full air
services resumed and Carib-
bean Airlines is also putting
on some additional jet ser-
vices to take up the slack,"

travelled to Cuba to undergo a
routine medical check-up for the
pacemaker he received during a
surgical procedure there almost
two years ago, told the Parlia-

The Director of Elections
said that gone should be the
days when political activists
visit persons at home and can
tell them -- based on informa-
tion they have gathered from

they have not voted and
must come to the polling sta-
tion to cast a ballot.
According to Mr. Walker,
under such circumstances, vot-
ers are often led to believe that,
if it is known that they have not
yet voted, then it is most likely
also known who they eventually
vote for. .
"If you go to v~ote or don't

targets outlined in the United Nations "Millennium
Development Goals (MDGs).
Yes, said Insanally, Guyana, as a "signatory to the
MDGs" was well on track to achieve the goals,such
as poverty eradication; universal primary education for
all; reducing the prevalence of HIV/AIDS; empowerment
of women and gender equity in education, while also
ensuring environmental sustainability.
For all the lingering social, economic and political
problems, including, of course, the dread crime
scene, the Guyana Government has clearly managed to
achieve significant patterns of progress, not only in the
changing infrastructure landscape, social and political
policies, but in enhancing the quality of life of the people.
Yet, much remains to be done--as friends and foes

Latest U.S. salvo at CARICOM
Development Bank (IDB)--an institution
long identified with positive responses to Guyana's
social and economic challenges--came with the
announcement of its very significant US$356.5 million
Of course, an end to the 'highly indebted' status,
which would free up money badly needed to sustain and
expand social welfare and economic development
programmes, brings new challenges.
For a start, having to cope with cancellation of at least
US$35 million of earlier agreed but undisbursed aid by
the IDB for various projects, including water
and sewerage services; roads, rural electrification and
allocations for SIMAP.
The IDB's announcement of the debt-write off and
new status for Guyana came as part of a package that
included other highly indebted countries in this
hemisphere--Haiti, Honduras, Bolivia and
Nicaragua. A few days later came the additionally
encouraging news of China's cancellation of an
accumulated US$15 million debt owed by this country.
All of Guyana's traditional aid donor friends, as well
as the county's private sector and social organizations
which, in a myriad of ways, had played their respective
part--and continue to do so--as the government
maintains firm commitments to achieve stated social
and economic objectives, deserve to be commended for
the new development phase being experienced.
One senses a feeling of deep pride in a statement
this past Friday from Foreign Minister Rudy Insanally in
responding to questions from PNCR parliamentarian
A further 21 percent declared they will vote for "none"-
neither the PNM, the main opposition United National Congress
(UNC) nor the Congress of People (COP), formed last year from a
This suggests, according to the normally reliable opinion poll,
that half of the electorate cannot be bothered about voting for ei-
ther the incumbent or its challengers.
Whether it is a reflection of apathy, or simply fatigue with the
low-level "politricks" in the crime-ridden twin-island state,
where racial divisions remain a major challenge, there is a related
surprising element from the Ansa MlcAl poll.
in terms of who they would vote for as Prime
Minister, the respondents had Manning just one point ahead
of the leader of the fledgling COP, Winston Dookeran, former
Governor of the Trinidad and Tobago Central Bank and a min-
While his successive administrations have chalked up a poor

to play before announcing an election date, possibly for November.
This would include an expected national budget of election
goodies and with lots of oil and natural gas money to help his PNM's
return to power.

rity" agenda is being externally driven; and yet to be placed within
the broad framework of social and economic development and sup-
ported by firm aid commitments from the rich and powerful na-
Although CARICOM as a group of sovereign states has never
been reluctant to cooperate with the USA in the fight against drugs,
human and small arms trafficking, and more recently terrorism, there
continues to be a high level of arrogance located in that sole super-
power that leads it to openly lecture this region, whenever it con-
siders it expedient.
That's why, in just over two weeks after the 17-point "Joint
Statement" of June 20 by President Bush and CARICOM lead-
ers during the Washington "Conference on the Caribbean--A
20/20 Vision", there could have been an insensitive release on
July 6 of a "U.S. Government Accountability Report" to Con-
gress, expressing serious concerns about corruption and lax
security at Caribbean ports.
Was "corruption" at our sea ports part of the discussion be-
tween President Bush and CARICOM leaders? Was the claimed rise
of "radical Islamic groups" in this region discussed?
While CARICOM leaders were still holding their silence on the
U.S. Government Accountability Report, there came a principled
response from the General Manager of the Caribbean Shipping As-
sociation (CSA), Stephen Belle.
He told the "BBC Caribbean Report" last week: "All of the
Caribbean ports have met the standards as laid out by the Interna-
tional Standards Organization (ISO). We are all signatories to the
International Ship Port and Facilities Security Code,of which if you
are~ not a signatory to that, vessels leaving the Caribbean cannot
call at United States ports..."
This timely, dignified intervention by the CSA's Belle in
defence of this region, contrasts with the public silence on the
continuing verbal onslaught that flows from officialdom in
Washington on issues of much national/regional importance,
relevant to our governance systems and commitment to a se-
cure and safe environment.
Since the horrific tragedies of the 9/11 terrorist attacks against
the USA, CARICOM governments have been leaned upon quite
heavily to beef up security at air and sea ports. And we did.
Many millions of. dollars have been spent on air and sea ports
security in the mutual interest of ourselves and our traditional friends
in North America, Europe and elsewhere. The significant upgradings
in sea and airport security should be known by the investigators
and authors involved with the U.S. 'accountability report'. So why
the unsubstantiated claims?
With fingers pointing to one very well-known group associated
with "radical Islamists"--the Jamaat-all-Muslimeen of Imam Abu
Bakr in Trinidad and Tobago-the "accountability report" talks
glibly of "extremist groups" in the region.
But it has provided no evidence of any other such "radical"
or "extremist" Islamic group within CARICOM.

from Washington--this time on alleged corruption and lax security
that contribute to making our sea parts vulnerable to feared attacks

Whatever the "prophesy" about the number 7, and her own
fascination in humouring her critics in playing the "game of
7s", the Prime Minister's strategy may be rooted in her self-
confidence of being a much better "road-runner" in elections
campaigning than the JLP's Bruce Golding.
With the latest Don Anderson poll showing a consistently close
race, but with the incumbent PNP with a five percent lead, time
will tell how right, or wrong, was 'Sister P's gamble with a seven-
week campaign as seventh Prime Minister of a CARICOM state

IN a most remarkable
closely on the heels of a
meeting in Washmngton
between U~.S. President
George W Bush and heads of
government of Caribbean
States, the United States has
taken an action at the World
Trade Organisation (WTO)
that will hurt the economies
of Caribbean banana
The United States, which
does not export bananas, lodged
a complaint on June 29th to the
WTO against the banana
importing regime of the
European Union (EU) saying
that it harms exports from Latin
Amdrican nations such as
Ecuador, Honduras, Panama and
On July 12th, the Dispute
Settlement Body of the WTO
agreed to set up a panel to
examine the U.S. complaint
against the EU bananariegime.
Undoubtedly, the decision
of the Panel will go the route of
every other panel that has
pronounced on this issue since
May 1997: it will instruct the
EU to change its banana
importing regime to stop any
advantage, however minuscule,
that African, Caribbean and
Pacific (ACP) states enjoy.
This is because WTO rules
- made up largely by the
world's richest nations
especially the U.S. and the EU
- states in general terms that the
rules apply equally to all
however large or small, rich or
poor. In this connection, the EU
banana importing regime would
be wrong to give any advantage,
however slight, to small and
The EU regime, which
has been battered since 1997
because of challenges at the
WTO led by the U.S., does
give a little advantage to
small Caribbean countries to
supply a minuscule' amount of
the EU's banana imports.
And, this is the point: it is a
little advantage for only a
very small share of the
market. Equity and fairness
should dictate that a little
advantage in these
circumstances is wholly
In the process of these
challenges, CARICOM banana
exporting countries saw the
industry decline, foreign
exchange earnings decrease and
unemployment rise. The lives
of simple people were thrown
If this most recent request
by the U.S. government for a
WTO Panel wasn't' so
seriously harmful to small
Caribbean countries, it would
Just imagine; the U.S.

The reality, however, is that
it is not any of the ~Latin
American nations named in the
complaint that the U.S. is

multinational companies such as
Chiquita that have large banana
plantations in these countries.
It was these multinationals
who were behind the first US
complaint to the WTO back in
contributors to both the
Republican and Democratic
Parties, the multinationals
called in their chips with
former U.S. President Bill
Clinton whose Democratic
Party administration lodged
the first complaint that began

How much more can they
possibly earn from another one-
fifth of the market, and have
they no care for the small
farmers in the ACP markets who
barely eke out a living from
their hard toil?
Having refused itself to
comply with a WTO Panel
ruling that found against the
U.S. and in favour of the
small Caribbean island,
Antigua and Barbuda, over
internet gaming, the USTR's
office boldly states in its
complaint against the EU
banana regime that: "The EC
failed to bring its import
regime for bananas into
compliance with its WTO
obligations by the end of the
reasonable period of time". It
seems that rules can be
conveniently invoked and
even more conveniently
In all of this the ACP
States and the poor farmers who
are affected by the process are
by-standers. On the face of it,
they are not thie party about
whom the complaint is being
made. The matter is between
the U.S. and the EU neither
of whom will lose anything -
and the ACP has no standing in
the matter except as its victims.
African, Caribbean and
Pacific countries and their
small banana farmers would
be justified in feeling let
down by the U.S. If there ever
was a moral case for
claiming that a country has
gone "bananas", this surely
must be it.
And what about the US
itself? Could the U.S. Trade
Representative's office not seek
to persuade the U.S.
multinationals not to wound
small farmers in the ACP more
than the thousand cuts they
have already been dealt and from
which they are steadily
The answer is self-evident.
Reading the text of the U.S.
complaint to the WTO, it is
quite remarkable how bereft of
any embarrassment the USTR's
office can be.

THE New York Times has
been wrong on Iraq for so long
that it has become tradition,
and they respect tradition at
the Times. Its Monday edito-
rial calling for an immediate
US withdrawal from Iraq
caused a great stir in the
United States: "It is time for
the United States to leave
Iraq,without any more delay
than the Pentagon needs to
organize an orderly exit."
But an "Lorderly exit"'is not
a real option any more, and
in any case that is not where
the logic of American politics
leads in the short run.
It would still be possible to
get the 160,000 American
troops out of Iraq without
scenes reminiscent of the UTS re-
treat from the Chosin Reservoir
in Korea (1950). let alone the
British retreat from Kabul
There would be embarrass-
ing TV clips as jubilant Iraqi

ing the supply lines uip to
Baghdad can still get out south-
wards via Kuwait, w-hile the
bulk of the American force could
w-ithdraw north to the friendly
territory of Kurdistan aInd
evacuate by air from there.
The problem is the collabo-
rators. Tens of thousands of
people will probably be killed
if they don't leave Iraq when
the Americans do, from humble
drivers and translators all the
way up to senior political and
military figures who are too
closely identified with the US
occupation forces. But given the
current state of American opin-
ion about Arabs and terrorism,
the United States will not wel-
come Iraqi refugees today in the
same way that it took in Viet-
namese refugees thirty years
The. US is already being
strikingly less generous than
European countries in accepting
Iraqi refugees, while by far the
greater part of the refugee bur-
den falls on Jordan and Syria.
But if the United States isn't
going to save the collaborators
(and it isn't, apart from a few
high-profile names who know
the US ambassador personally,
their deaths will be the roadside
counter-point to the eventual
However, for all the drama

file Republican senator after an-
other loses faith in the war, and

say is that most other politi-
cal forces in Washington are
content to go along with that
strategy,even if they must
publicly insist otherwise.
All political attention in
Washington is now fixed on the
November, 2008 election. That

speed American withdrawal
from Iraq to be forgotten before

it out in the streets, but that is
the most that is going to hap-
pen before early 200)9.
God knows whether that
means more or fewer Iraqi
deaths in the long run, for
the fighting in Iraq will cer-
tainly not stop when the
Americans leave, and it's not
clear whether the American
presence is currently making
the civilian death toll lower
or hligherr. We canl calculate
that close to 2,000) more
Amlerican~s troops will die by
early 2(009 in thle service of
these political strategies -

to tarnish GECOM's image, Dr. Surujbally told the par-
ticipants that '"we have all worked together in a concerted and
cohesive effort to earn the credence and credibility which we
now have' .,
He emphasized that "the successful conduct of the 2006 elec-
tions, for which we have won local and international acclaim, is evi-
dent of our commitment and dedication to efficiently execute our
collective responsibilities" and urged that "we must protect and build
upon our hard earned position of national trust.
Dr. Surujbally said that, to do so, "you must inculcate a sense
of pride and confidence in what you are doing and always strive to
build GECOM's image through your general good conduct.
He charged the participants to encourage the "field staff' never
to be daunted in carrying out their respective tasks by negative re-
sponses as they go about visiting addresses to register eligible per-
sons residing there-
"It m'ust be among your responsibilities to insist that such per-
sons become registered by informing them about the legal require-
ment for them to register as well as the benefits of being registered,"

GUYANA REVENUE AUTHORITY
VAT Policy Corner
POlicy 8 -VAT Refunds
The following is the Guyana Revenue Authority's Value Added Tax (VAT) guiding principle in relation to
application for refunds. Many taxpayers have been querying whether they are required to apply to the
VAT D~epartment each month for refunds in respect of their excess input tax credits.
A: Section 35 (1) of the Value Added Tax Act states that:
(a) the total amount of the input tax creditable by a taxable person under section 24 for a
period exceeds the person's output tax for that period; or
(b) the amount of tax paid by a person, other than in circumstances specified under
paragraph (a), was in excess of the amount properly charged to tax under this Act, the
amountof the excess shall be treated in the manner provided in this section.
Section 35 (2) states:
"Except as provided in subsection (5), the excess described in subsection (1) (a) is carried
forward to the next tax period and treated as input tax creditable in that period.
It therefore means that if there is an excess amount owed by the Guyana Revenue Authority to a taxpayer, that
amount will be carried over to the next tax period. However, if any of the excess for a tax period remains after
being carried forward and used as input tax creditable in six consecutive tax periods, a taxpayer can file with the
Commissioner to claim the refund as provided in Section 35 (3) which states-
'Subject to this section, if any, of the excess referred to in subsection (1) (a) for a tax period
remains after being carried forward and used as input tax creditable in six consecutive tax
periods, the taxable person may file with the Commissioner, a claim for refund for the amount
remaining in the form and with the documentation specified in regulations.
Conversely, subsection (5) states-
(5) "Where at least fifty percent of the amount of the taxable amount of the taxable supplies of
a taxable person for the taxable period is taxed at a zero rate, and the person reports an!
excess described in subsection (1) (a) for a taxable period, the person may file with the~
Commissioner a claim for refund for the excess credits attributable to the zero-rated suppjie
in the form and with the documentation specified in regulations"
Regulation 7 (1) states-
*If a taxpayer in a credit position is entitled to reclaim a refund under section 35 of the Ac~t. the cla]-
shall be submitted in the form and with the documentation determined b, the. ZcC2 mssio~ne
including the following information-
(a) the legal name of the registered person making the claim, and the regisreered person s
trade name, if different from the legal name;
(b) The VAT registration number of the registered person making the supply;
(c) The amount of the refund claimed, the period or periods in which the credit arose, the
periods, if any, to which the credit was carried and portions of it were claimed".
Provided that a taxpayer exports over fifty percent of his taxable supplies, he may file a claim every month to the
Guyana Revenue Authority for a refund of the excess credits attributable to the zero-rated supplies. The claim
for refund will be filed in addition to the tax return. The application form for refunds can be uplifted at the VAT

MOSCOW (Reuters) Russia said yesterday Saturday it
would suspend its participation in a key pact limiting mill-
tary forces in Europe in five months' time unless a com-
pr~omise was found' on updating the treaty.
The move follows months of veibal sparring with Europe
and Washington on a range of fronts, including U.S. plans for a
missile shield in eastern Europe, proposed independence for
Serbia's Kosovo province and Moscow's energy policies.
The Kremlin said President Vladimir Putin had signed a de-
cree suspenditig Russia's role in the Conventional Forces in Eu-
rope (CFE) treaty for reasons of "national security .
NATO, Washington and the European Union expressed re-
gret and disappointment at the Russian move.

LONDON, England (Reuters)
- Formula One teams have
always kept a close eye on ri-
vals, eager for any gain that
might make their cars go
quicker, but the current 'spy'
controversy goes well beyond
As McLaren team boss Ron
Dennis explained at the British
Grand Prix last weekend, there
is a clear dividing line between
what is generally considered ac-
ceptable and what is evidently
"I remember with great
amusement locking another
team's aerodynamicist, who was
measuring and photographing
parts of our bodywork, into the
back of our truck," Dennis re-
called of one past incident.
"'And you could say that
was over the limit
"Equally, many photog-
raphers are commissioned to
take detailed photographs of
other people's cars and
we take detailed photographs
of other people's cars," added
"And that is probably
within the accepted practices in
grand prix racing.
"There are unwritten limits
to which everybody should ad-
here and clearly these (latest al-
legations) exceed all previously
The case involving
McLaren's chief designer Mike
Coughlan, suspended last week
after a house search found a sig-
nificant quantity of confidential
of sabotage, denied by former
Ferrari engineer Nigel Stepney
who has also rejected sugges-
tions that he and former
Benetton colleague and fellow-
Briton Coughlan were acting to-
The courts will unravel
the full story but, whatever
the outcome, few if anyone
in Formula One will have
been surprised by data leak-
ing from one team to another.
"You cannot stop it. As
long as human beings are around,
it will always be there," former
champion Niki Lauda said of
"These things happen, in
big car manufacturers and ev-
erywhere. It's logical."
The last such incident hap-
pened in 2002 when Ferrari
took legal action against two of
their engineers who had moved
to Toyota, whose subsequent
car aroused suspicions.
Earlier this season,
Spyker principal Colin
Kolles presented a Red Bull
document to try and demon-
strate the illegality of that
team's car. *
Formula One is a sport
where people have been known
to start rumours just for fun, to
see how long it takes before the
whispers come full circle. There
is a constant exchange of infor-
At the Canadian Grand Prix
some years ago, then team boss
Eddie Jordaq~related how he had
been given a digital photograph
of a race engineer's sheet taken
by somebody peering down
from the Paddock Club above.
The Paddock Club is an ex-
clusive area reserved for VIPs,
sponsors and special guests.
In those days, teams cov-
ered up their race cars and
erected screens in front of the
garages to keep out the photog-
But there is little teams can

nical staff are headhunted other

times with great perfection
and accuracy, on other grand
The classic case of that oc-
curred in 1977, when ex-Shadow
employees founded Arrows.
Their car was built in a mere
60 days but hit trouble when
Shadow chief Don Nichols claimed
the Al was nothing more than a
copy of his DN9 -both designed
by Tony Southgate.
The High Court found in
favour of Shadow and Arrows
had to come up with a re-
placement, which they did
without even missing a race.
Perhaps the most bizarre
case, however, was one that ap-
parently involved real spies.
In 2001, Renault techni-
cal director Jean-Jacques His
revealed that the company's
system had been hacked into
and final designs for that
year's Formula One engine

My fiancee and I have a dlifficult relationship. I entered
the relationship with -lingering feelings for may previous
girlfriend. It came down to ultimatum time, and I told the
woman who is now my fianede to move on. We carried on
as before except for physical intimacy.
She started dating another but told me, "Hie's just a friend."
I believed her. As the prospect of losing her for good became
real, I panicked. I opened up to her in ways I never had. I
proposed and she said yes. We began plannn the wedding,
but under pressure from me she started dropping bombs about
being sexually intimate with him. Can Itrust her?
Gregg, tit for tat measure for measdre, a taste of one's own
medicine. Is that what this is about? You pushed her away
after being intimate with her. You wanted another woman who
didn't want you, and you let her know it.
She dated someone else and lied. Why? Because she
hoped you would come around. She didn't want to be left
with no one, if you continued to shove her away. When
you decided she was better than nothing, you proposed.
Part of wanting her was someone else wanting her. Now
you've interrogated the truth out of her--so you can shove
her away again.
You don't want to be with her, and you don't want the
insecurity of trying to nind another. If this engagement
goes to marriage, one day you will be standing at the al-
tar, while your friends in the pew4 take bets on how long
the marriage will last.

I recently moved in with a
man I love deeply. We've
been together al most two
years, and the only problem
we haven't worked out is the
amount of affection I want.
I have a higher sex drive
than him, and I-think that
may be part of it. When-
ever he is around, I want to
throw my arms around him
and give him kisses.
While he has never outright
denied the affection I want to
give him, I can tell sometimes
P 5-. '1; i

, .. S-
it mar be too much for him. I find myself lying awake nights wish-
ing he would put his arms around me without me having to initiate
.it. or hoping he would want to spend more time alone with me
Sophie, Timothy Treadwell, the subject of the movie "Griz-
zly Man," lived among brown bears for 13 summers. Treadwell
believed he loved brown bears and sometimes even crooned "I
love you" as he approached a grizzly. In the end, the bears
loved him back; they loved him to death. He and his girlfriend
were eaten by bears.
Timothy Treadwell's life illustrates the nth degree of want-
ing what we cannot have. Treadwell thought because he loved
bears, bears should love him. You think because you want cud-
dling, your boyfriend should want to cuddle. You and
Treadwell act as if there is no will on the other side. What
about the bears? What about your boyfriend? What if it is
not their nature?
The amount of physical affection a person desires depends
on many things, including the nurturing they received or failed
to receive in the opening years of life. It is a pattern etched
into the brain. You can berate, torture, or soothe your boy-
friend into sometimes giving you what you want, but that is
not his natural state.
You seek a way to get what you desire because you
won't acknowledge what he is like. Acknowledging what
he is like implies change on your part, and perhaps, end-
ing the relationship. If you
stay with your boyfriend,
either you will be sick of
pushing him, or he will be

It was her brother who through
some magical process led to my

actually it was his girlfriend, a
sweet doll-faced East Indian

was a good looking youth who
seemed very much in love with
his blue Honda 60 Motorcycle;
he smiled a lot as if to flash his

girlfriend, leaving her sitting on
his Honda while he rushed into
his house for something. I re-

year when a lot of
us travel. The
are here and itts*TMs a great

your suitcase before even
stepping on to the plane
Packing for a trip i's no easy
task. Most of us end up pack-
ing more clothes than we know
what to do with. And shoes?
Forget about it; they require a
separate suitcase on their own.
It's not much easier when it
comes to beauty and skin care.
While we want to make sure we
bring all the essentials, our skin
may~require different products
when we travel than when we're
at home. The key is to find
multitasking products that don't
take up too much room.
teHere's how to look great on
I*4 Buy a cream blush
that doubles as a lip tint
&*0 Carry cleansing or re-
freshing wipes to clean dirt and
make-up even waterproof
mascara from your face, while
nourishing skin with moisture.
These are especially great for
L*4 Carry an all-in-one
moisturiser with sunscreen and
tint. Look for creams with SPF
15 protection or higher that
have a slight pigment to provide
a great finished look without
the heaviness of foundation.
. &* Go from day into
evening without overstuffing
your make-up bag: A hint of
shimmer can be applied to the
face, body and even hair, creat-
ing a sexy night-time look in
b*0 Prepare for lost lug-
gage by bringing a few basics on
board. Many of the above prod-
usts can be easily packed in
your travel bag to tide you over
until your luggage is found.
b*4 Drink plenty of wa-
ter. Whether you are in the air
or basking on the beach staying
hydrated is the most important
beauty tip of all.
L*4 Don't wear nail pol-
ish; it chips easily when you're
carrying luggage, making your
hands instantly unsightly. In-
stead, get a 'buff' manicure ask
your manicurist to buff your
nails to a shine instead of ap-
I*# Carry some pepper-
mint or rosemary oil on
flights. The re-circulated air
in planes can make the atmo-
sphere stuffy. Rub a dab of es-
sential oil on your temples to
help relieve congestion. (If
you have time for a bath
when you get to your destina-
tion, you can add several
drops of oil to that as well.)
L*4 Wear minimal eye
make-up, and carry eye drops.
Stuffy air, long queues and
hours on the go will make you
tired. Wilted eye make-up will
make you look~ even more tired,
If your eyes feel too naked with-
out some attention, you can ap-
ply a light mascara tint and set
your brows in place with a clear
brow gel. If your peepers feel
dry or get red, a few eye drops
will fix them.
L*4 Apply a leave-in con-
ditioner before you begin your
journey. Choose one that's for-
mulated for your hair type so
it won't weigh your hair down.
The stresses of travelling, espe-
'cially if you go to a different
climate, can dry out hair and
cause split ends.
&*4 Carry an eye gel or
cream. Often, applying a nu-
t~ritious eye gel or cream is
enough of a pick-me-up to
get through customs. If not,

reeked of cigarette smoke, which meant that I had really returned from a 1 pm matinee; "When

But whatever my old man and I argued about never stuck, so I have nothing to relate now.
But no one was surprised when Saints expeled me after three years. It came as a relief to me
as I found that college to be a prissy all male emasculated environment at that time, without
girls, whereas Thtorial High, which accepted me, had beautiful Guyanese girls of all races and
mixtures who sat next to boys in class. It wats around 1963 that I started attending Plaza mati-

striped Terylene shirts, Banlon jerseys, shiny drain pipe trousers, leather loafers and ankle-
high pointed tip boots. One afternoon I watched short mulatto Lace, who was an Usher, stride
down the aisles of House as Percy Faith's theme from 'A Summer Place' boomed, and the way
he rapidly shut rows of windows with a roar, then strode back up the aisles with the buckles of
his ankle-high leather-soled brown suede boots jingling, tight bright pinstriped jeans, and a
mustard Banlon jersey, sent me the excited message in thie falling darkness as 'A Summner

Hamid and Bashu
sentenced to death for the
murder of school-boy
Godfrey Texi~eira victim of
a school-bus bombing on
March 23, 1964.
Both death-row murderers
appealed on the ground of mis-
direction by the trial judge on
the standard of proof.
The British Caribbean
Court of Appeal dismissed the
appeal by Hamid who accord-
ing to the evidence, had thrown
the bomb into the moving bus,
killing school-boy Godfrey
Texieira. His conviction and
death sentence were affirmed.
But death-row convict
Bashu Mohamed escaped the
gallows. His appeaL was al-
lowed. His conviction and
death sentence were set aside
on the ground that on the day
in question he might not have
known of Hamid's intention and
even if he did, he might have
been present out of mere curi-
osity and not with the intention
of assisting it.

Hamid's appeal was dis-
nissed' and Mohamed's appeal
President of the Court Jus-
ice Archer, who delivered the
judgment, noted that Abdul
amid and Bashu Mohamed
tere convicted of the murder of
;odfrey Texieira. On the 23rd
~f March, 1964, between 4.30
nd 5 p~m., Texieira, a school
oy, was a passenger on a bus.
'he bus stopped to set down
passengers, and a grenade was
Irown through the window of
re bus. Texieira received mul-
ple injuries and died that night.
According to the President,
alo, a witness for the Crown,
ho was a passenger in a taxi
which had stopped immediately
:hind the bus, gave evidence
at Abdul Hanud had thrown
e grenade. Tw~o other passen-
rs in the taxi also saw a man,
aom they described, throw the
enade, but neither of them
antified Hamid as the person.
>dul Hamid, Bashu Mohamed
d another man, whose iden-
y was not established, were
:ether one hour before the
me was committed. The evi-
dence of Polo was, that at the
time when the bus stopped, the
appellants were on the parapet
opposite the left back wheel of
the bus Mohamed went right
up to the bus, and Abdul
Hamid, about two to three feet
north of him, with his shirt out
of his trousers and his right un-
der his shirt; that just a~s the bus
was about to move off, Abdul
Hamid took something from un-
der his shirt with his left hand
and threw it through a window
ofAtbuthe time, Bashu
Mohamed was close to Abdul
Hamid, and when the bus had
travelled two to three rods,
there was an explosion in the
bus, and the two appellants
walked quickly away.
Both appellants appealed
on the ground of misdirection
by the trial judge on the stan-
dard of proof. In addition,
Abdul H~amid .appealed on
the ground of misdirection by
the judge when dealing with
the question of identifica-
tion, and Bashu Mohamed
appealed on the ground of
reception of inadmissible
evidence and non-direction
by the judge in the passages
in the summing-up concern-
ing Mishamed's participation
in the offence.
Counsel for the appellants
criticised two passages in the
summing up in which the judge
directed the jury on the burden
of proof. These passages occur
at pp. 181 and 182 of the sum-
ming-up and are as follows:
S"By reasonable doubt is
meant the kind of doubt which
would cause you to hesitate in
your ordinary everyday busi-
ness affairs. It is not whimsi-
cal or fanciful doubt. It must
be a reasonable doubt."
Continuing his judgment,
President Archer pointed out
that the witness Polo had said
that he had known both the ap-
his left hand to bowl at cricket
and his right hand or other hand
to bat .
The evidence against Hamid
was not weak, as counsel con-
tended. The judge made it clear
to the jury that unless they ac-
cepted Polo's evidence, they
could not convict, the president
In his concluding remarks,
the President had said, "The

ful direction to the jury. There

sense that he had guilty knowl-
edge, his mere presence consti-
tuted participation in the of-
fence; but that he knew that
Abdul Hamid was in posses-
sion of a bomb and intended to

dentist to have him check the progress of the treatment and
the condition of the gums and teeth.
Before bleaching is started at home, the patient needs to brush
his/her teeth and clean his/her mouth thoroughly. Then, after a thin
rope of gel has been placed in the night guard, the guard should be
inserted in the mouth. There should be enough gel in the night guard
to cover the teeth without overflowing on the gum tissue. Most
home bleaching products recommend three to five minutes' exposure
to a maximum of' two times each day. You need to consult your
dentist about these recommendations on the amount of treatment
exp'osure you should have each day and the best times for you to
do the treatment. It is generally recommended that the treatment
should not continue more than six weeks. No documented studies
have assessed the longevity of vital bleaching, but the general feeling
is that patients will eventually need re-bleaching.
A major advantage of bleaching over other procedures that
whiten teeth is that is doesn't require any tooth structure to
be removed. It is usually recommended that teeth be bleached
a shade lighter that you desire, since they will darken with

Founder the supervision of a dentist is both safe
and effective. When patients use over-the-counter products
that are not recommended by their dentist, many times they
Some of the recent over-the-counter (OTC) bleaching kits use
acetic or citric acid as their active ingredient, which causes major
structural damage to enamel and dentin. This results in tooth
sensitivity and ~gingival irritation when used for an extended time.
These ingredients may also have a detrimental effect on tooth filling
materials. The trays in the over-the-counter bleaching kits are not
custom-made, resulting in leakage of the bleaching agent on the tissue
in the mouth-
Bleaching supervised by a dentist can either be done in the dental
office or at home. Your dentist is able to bleach both vital and non-
vital teeth. A vital tooth is one that has a healthy pulp. A non-vital
tooth is one that has had the pulp removed by root canal therapy.
When bleaching is done in the office on vital teeth, it takes from
30 minutes to one hour per visit. In order to protect the soft tissue,
a gel-like substance is first applied to the gums and then a rubber
shield is used to cover the gum tissue, allowing just the teeth to be
exposed. A solution of an oxidizing (bleaching) agent is then applied
to the teeth, and a special light is focused for 20 to 30 seconds at
five-minute intervals. This helps activate the oxidizing agent. The
process usually needs to be repeated several times before the tooth
is the desired color. As of this writing, the only bleaching agent to
receive the ADA Seal of Approval for dentist-supervised office use
is Starbrite Bleaching solution by Stardent Laboratories.1Imight add
that the ADA is recognized as the leading authority to certify dental
Bleaching that is done at home should also be supervised
by your dentist to insure no damage occurs to your teeth or
gums. Night guard vital bleaching (NGVB) with a 10 to 15
percent cabamide peroxide has replaced most techniques for
bleaching multiple teeth that are vital (have not had root canal
therapy) at home. This technique, when done under the
supervision of a dentist, is painless, inexpensive, and very
effective. Most authorities favor the thicker gels that are
flavored. The gels are easier to handle if they are dispersed
in syringes instead of bottles. Before the bleaching technique
can begin, your dentist has to make you a custom-fitted night
guard out of thin, soft materials that will minimize the
potential for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, tooth
sensitivity, tissue irritation, and orthodontic problems. This
appliance will cover all of the upper or the lower teeth. First,
an impression of your mouth is taken. Then a custom-made
night guard is fabricated with reservoirs to hold the bleaching
agent in place. The night guard is designed to fit closely over
the teeth in order to prevent excessive loss of the bleaching
agent. This also prevents the tissue from being injured by
coming in contact with the bleaching agent. It is very
important for patients to return on a scheduled basis to the

He held the revered position of writer-in-residence at
many universities around the world including places like Aus-
tralia, New York, Texas, Toronto and Cuba. In 1987, he won
the inaugural Guyana Prize for Literature in the fiction cat-
egory and in 2002 he was awarded the Guyana Prize Special
In 2003, the University of Warwick staged a conference in
honour of Harris. In 1968, Wilson Harris was a delegate to the Na-
tional Identity Conference in Brisbane; and in the same year, he
was a delegate to a UNESCO symposium on Caribbean Literature
held in Cuba.
In 1970, he was part of the Convention of Caribbean Writers
and Artists held in Guyana planning for what turned out to be the
Caribbean Festival of Arts (Carifesta).
Some of his poems were collected in three volumes; FE-
TISHI, 1951, ETERNITY TO SEASON, 1952, and THE WELL
AND THE LAND, 1952. He has written numerous essays on

Denise Harris, born in Georgetown, Guyana, is widely-tray-
elled; her attachment to UNICEF has taken her to places like Bar-
bados, Jamaica, New York and Beijing. Her first novel, WEB OF
SECRETS, won the Guyana Prize for Literature, 1996, in the cat-
egory of best first book of fiction.
The book is 'fictional autobiography' dealing with issues
from which people shy away; it gives 'a picture of a sensitive
child suffering considerably from the stress of marital break-
down, the African-Indian racial violence of early 1960's
Georgetown, and the failure, of the family to confront the ra-
cial tensions within it'.
It is also a novel of redemption. Her second novel, IN RE-
MEMBRANCE, OF HER, was short-listed for the Guyana Prize
in 2004. She is also a photographer.

Supervisor at the National
Library Binder Ms Rosaline
Stewart says,"We cannot throw
away certain books. Some books
have to be preserved because of
the value of the information
they contain. And not preserved
for just a few years more but
for decades to come."
In an interview, Ms Stewart
said that every book that is
taken into the Library has to
be processed by the Bindery
before it gets on the shelves
"Our work involves
strengthening the book so that
it can withstand the rigors of a
public Library," she said, add-
ing that this includes the place-
ment of end papers, and exid fly
papers and in the case of nov-
els, hard covers.
Documents being bound by
herself and a staff of four, in-
clude local newspapers and oth-
ers such as the Official Gazette;
and a basic element is stitching
"~All our binding, as over
the past decades, involve
stitching of the spines of the
books and other documents
by hand. We have to separate
the pages of the book or
newspaper or document, cut
the pages at the correct size
and then stitch the leaves to-
"Binding is really a chal-
lenge because when the book
comes in we have to do a diag-
nosis and then decide what to
to come. It's an art, it's a craft,
it's a challenge."
"There are different types
of stitching. We use the saddle
stitch over-casting; section
sewing and stab and stitch The
stitching depends on the book
and the state it is in."
Stewart disclosed that all of
the paperback novels have to be
bound if they are to last for any
length of time.
Ms Stewart, who has been
working in the Bindery for
the past thirty three years,
says she can attest to the
toughness and longevity of
bound books aind documents
since bound publications she
had met in her early days on

"When a book or document
is properly bound, somebody
has to deliberately cut that
book to damage it. It's the most
effective method for a presery-

ment," she said.

1. Norman Vincent Peale, "Power of Positive Thinking"
By P.S. Thakur
"Is the glass half-fill1 or is it half empty" is an old saying that
never grows old. It very well illustrates the view that optimism or
pessimism is a matter of one's perception of the world; the way
we interpret events in our lives. Ignoring the negative and dwelling
on the positive is a significant manner of living and improving the
quality of life.
5. Cataloguing all my failures Cataloguing all my strength
LIST OF DO'S
i Write down a list of positive things about yourself.
2. Give more rewards and compliments (be honest on such
3. Accept and respect yourself with all your faults.
Carnegie, "How to Win Friends and Influence
Here is a test of optimism. Which ones are you?
You submit an excellent piece of work and receive high

feel awkward and think this is luck-
2. A tree fell right in front of you. Do you feel?
(a) relieved and grateful that it missed you
(b) shaken and distraught
3. Your friend is in the hospital on a monitoring device. Do
(a) assured that he is getting good care
(b) disturbed that your friend is in a fragile state
All ("a"s) are optimists. In this test of optimism you would
have answered most or all of the "a~s.
Pessimism has a profound negative effect on one's physical and
emotional health. They are constantly in a state of low self-es-
teem and depression. This dis-stress is the body in a constant state
of hyper-vigilance, never relaxed. Thie body organs heart, lungs,
kidneys, skin (perspiration) are being overworked. The preoccu-
pation with negative thoughts is a hinidrance to being or feeling ac-
complished, because the thoughts aire~always about failure and the
ill consequences of failure.
Here are some symptoms of pessimismm'
1. Exaggerate all problems
2. Ignore the positive and dwell on the negative
3. Personalizing every little event, '"They are staring at me".
4. Jumping to conclusions, "She is. ignorii g me"
It is not what people say or do but it~is how ~we perceive what
we do. The word "perceive" means "to interpret". In pessimism
a compliment,. "You look~nice", may be interpreted as a cynical
remark. Sometimes these precepticks becornle a pattern and one
sees all events in a negative light the pessimist. Alternatively,
one may view all events in a positiye-light an optimist. With
these positive thoughts we tend to think and action will follow ac-
cording, making for a happier and productive life. The good lord
gave us a body and a mind; it is up to us how to use it; use it to
optimize the quality of life.

Rome's Colosseum, India's Taj Mahal and three
architectural marvels fromt Latin America were
aplong the new seven wonders of the world
chosen in a global poL
Jordan's Petra was the seventh winner. Pemu's Machu Picchu,
Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer and Mexico's Chichen Itza
pyramid also made the cut.
About 100 million votes were cast by yhe Internet and
cellphone text messages, said New7Wonders, the nonprofit or-
ganization that conducted the poll.
The seven beat out 14 other nominated landmarks, including
the Eiffel Tower, Easter Island in the Pacific, the Statue of Lib-
erty, the Acropolis, Russia's Kremlin and Australia's Sydney
The pyramids of Giza, the only surviving structures from
the original seven wonders of the ancient world, were assured of
retaining their status in addition to the new seven after indignant
Egyptian officials said it was a disgrace they had to compete.
The cadapaign to name new wonders was launched in
1999 by the Swiss adventurer Bern: 4 Weber. Almost 200
nominations came in, and the list wDas narrowed to the 21
most-voted by the start of 2006. Organzr admit there was
no foolproof way to prevent people from voting more than
once for their favorite.
A Peruvian in national costume held up Macchu Piecu's award
to the sky and bowed to the crowd with his hands clasped, elic-
iting one of the biggest cheers from the audience of 50,000 people
at a soccer stadium in Portugal's capital, Lisbon.
Many jeered when the Statue of Liberty was announced as
one of the candidates. Portugal was widely opposed to the U.S.-
led invasion of Iraq.
Another Swiss adventurer, Bertrand Piccard, pilot of the
first hot-air balloon to fly nonstop around the world, an-
nounced one of the winners then launched into an ap-
peal for people to combat climate change and stand up for
human rights before being ushered off the stage.
The Colosseum, the Great Wall, Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal
and Petra had been among the leading candidates since January,
while the Statue of Christ Redeemer received a surge in votes
The Statue of Liberty and Australia's Sydney Opera House
were near the bottom of the list from the start.
Also among the losing candidates were Cambodia's Angkor.
Spain's Alhambra, Turkey's Hagia Sophia, Japan's Kiyomizu

end a relationship your routines may change b~ut you don't usu-
ally get whacked on the head or thrown over a cliff.
What would serve us best at these times are a clear mind
and a directed reaction. But our bodies reduce this likelihood,
being primed as they are for automatic action.
In addition to challenges precipitated by events we have
some involvement in, there are things beyond our control that

We set out with good intentions. No rational person in-
tends to fail whether in a job, a relationship, an investment, a
course of study, a business or a move. So when the good in-
tentions go wrong we need to bring the original intent back into
the picture. And we have to reflect on what was in our control
and what was not
In addition to the cognitive adjustments on the nature of.
failure that we can make, and the sorting out of what's outside
of our control, there are a few things that help when we are
struck by a setback unlike a carnivore attack, a setback is go-
ing to play out in days and weeks rather than in minutes.
So physical activity or exercise will helpfto work off the
chemical soup in our bodies and reduce its influence on our re-
actions. And putting off any big decision we can while our
judgement isliely not thebest will reduce the chances of com-
pounding the problem.

What we can take away from the Edison example, however,
is that we should recognize failure for what it is and what it
is not. Like success, failure can be many things: a wake-up
call, a need to redouble efforts, a learning experience, a time for
reflection, a motivator or an acceptance of defeat.

Narcissistic people have no trouble with this. In fact, their
standard operating practice is to immediately blame others for
anything that goes wrong.
Beside the narcissists who never make any mistakes, there
are others who have somehow incorporated a more adaptive
approach into the way they respond to failure. They suffer
the sting of failure, but they have learnt to move on, and to
extract benefit from it,
Very many others, however, have not made this leap. After
a major setback, many people may go into an extended period of
self-doubt. They beat themselves up continuously and may en-
ter a catatonic shell. This only self inflicts additional psychic
punishment that serves to lengthen and deepen the setback.
People react badly to setbacks for good reason. It has to
do with the fact that we're wired to recoil from the pain of
failure as a basic instinct. In the wild there was not much mar-
gin for crror. A single error and we were someone's meal. In
the face of this type of extreme danger we want to learn quickly
and if we're caught we want to play dead.
An adrenalin rush was exactly what was needed in these
life or death situations, and our autonomous nervous system
evolved to provide precisely that.
Unfortunately, our bodies still react in the same man..
ner today. It tries to help when adverse events are per-
ceived by juicing up the adrenalin and sending us into
flight or fight mode. Our senses sharpen, things begin to
move in slow motion, muscles tense up, digestion shots

Keywords Are Key
Keywords are terms that
describe the experience, skills,
personality traits, software
proficiencies or academic cre-
dentials that a certain position
requires. They are important to
consider because many compa-
nies now use filtering software
to scan r~sumis for keywords,
flagging those with a high con-
centration for further consider-
ation. In fact, according to Taleo
Research, a firm that studies
management practices, 94 per-
cent of the top 500 U.S. com-
panies use computer programs
to evaluate r~sum~s.
This trend has caused some
job seekers to respond cre-
atively. In an attempt to get a
- leg up on the competition, they
hide keywords in their r~sum~s
by camouflaging them in white
type or.decreasing the font size
so that the text is invisible to all

the system can simply make you look bad.
Instead, you want to include keywords that accurately rep-
resent your employment background. Let's say you're apply-

According to the employment ad, the company seeks a "dy-

so that the wording mirrors this language from the job de-

"accurate" and "tight deadlines" when discussing your prevl.
Candidates on Camera
Another recent development is the advent of the "video
r~sum6." While the tried-and-true printed (or electronic) r~sum6 re-
mains a job seeker's primary promotional tool, some candidates -
especially those in fields requiring; stellar creative abilities are
trying to distinguish themselves w~rh video r~sum~s. Technological
Advancements have made it relatively easy and inexpensive to pm-
duce a professional-looking video and upload it to a Web site, where
psepective employers can view it.
It remains to be seen if the video r~sum6 represents a passing
fad or the future. A recent Harris Interactive survey, however, indi-
cates both employers and candidates are at least intrigued by the
concept. In the survey, 60 percent of hiring managers and human
resources professionals polled expressed "some interest" in seeing
video r6sum~s. In addition, 49 percent of workers expreased some
willingness to post a video r~sum6~ to attract the attention of a pre
There has been a general conception that the r~sum6 never

processed, it may not be pasteurised, and so may still
contain botulism spores and should be avoided. Spores of
the bacteria that cause botulism, are, present in honey and
can cause serious illness and death. These spores in the
honey are not destroyed by regular cooking or baking
How to select and store
Honey is sold in individual containers or in bulk. It is
usually pasteurised, although often at farmer's markets you
can find raw honey. Raw honey that has not been
pasteurized, clarified, or filtered, provided it is of the
highest organic quality, is your best choice. Look for honey
that states "100 per cent pure". While regular honey is
translucent, creamy honey is usually opaque and is made
by adding finely crystallised honey back into liquid honey.
Specially honeys, made from the nectar of different flowers,
such as thyme and lavender, are also available. Remember
that the darker the colour, the deeper the flavour.
It is important to keep honey stored in an airtight
container so that it doesn't absorb moisture from the
air. Honey stored this way in a cool dry place will keep
almost indefinitely. One reason for this is that its
high sugar content and acidic pH help to inhibit micro-
organism growth. Honey that is kept at colder
temperatures tends to thicken, while honey that is
kept at higher temperatures has a tendency to darken
and have an altered flavour.
From the Caribbean food and Nutrition Institute
Continued Fromn last week
Honey is considered by some to be more than a sweetener
and a "healthier" alternative for sugar because it contributes
some minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium sodium
chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate. It also contains vitamins
B1 (thiamin) B2 (riboflavin), C (ascorbic acid), B6 (pyridoxine),
B5 pantothenicc acid) and B3 nicotinicc acid). However the
contribution differs according to the qualities of the nectar and
pollen. Additionally, honey contains small quantities of copper,
iodine, and zinc. It should be noted that honey is denser than
sugar thus providing more kilocalories per spoon. The sugars
in honey are the same as those found in fruits which have greater
nutritional value. In fruits, the sugars are diluted in water,
packaged in fibre and mixed with valuable minerals and vitamins.
In most honeys, fructose predominates and tends to
make honey taste slightly sweeter than sugar but there
are a few types of honeys which contain more glucose than
fructose. Some honeys are very rich in fructose and thus
tend to taste very sweet. Generally, the sweetness of honey
is 1 to 1.5 times sweeter (on a dry weight basis) than sugar.
Liquid honey is about as sweet as sugar but it contains
only 82.4 g carbohydrate per 100 grams versus 100 g-
carbohydrate for the same amount of sucrose and provides
304 kcal/100 g versus 400 kcal for sucrose. One tablespoon
of honey weighs 21 grams, of which approximately 17
grams are carbohydrates. The sugar content is the sum of
all the mono, di- and oligo-saccharides. This 40 per cent
lower caloric value and sweetness level of honey makes it
a choice for some persons who are complying with a
The main uses of honey are in cooking, baking, spreading
on bread or toast, and as an addition to various beverages such
as tea. It can also be used as a sweetener for fruits as well. It
can also be used in any food that is sweetened, including frozen
desserts, baked products, meat glazes, custards, frostings, pie
fillings, cobblers, puddings, candied vegetables and salad
dressings. Because honey is hygroscopic (drawing moisture-from
the air) a small quantity of honey added to a pastry recipe will
retard the staling process. Raw honey also contains enzymes
that help in its digestion, several vitamins and antioxidants.
Most vegans consider honey to be an animal product and avoid
using it, instead choosing sweetening alternatives such as golden
syrup. Some recipes use honey as the main sweetener; others
use sugar. Honey can be used to replace some of the sugar called
for in many recipes, drinks and food but for a child under 12
months of age,- there is a risk of botulism from eating honey
and products made with honey. These should !?e avoided.IThe

Hello Readers, .
This week we will examine the EPA's Complaints Process.
The Agency regulates against environmental pollution
under the Environmental Protection Regulations 2000.
Those persons who have been following our column would
be aware of these Regulations on Air Quality, Water
Quality, Hazardous Waste and Noise Management, which
were discussed in previous articles. These regulations are
an environmental management tool used by the EPA to
seek compliance by all persons, agencies and
organizations to sound environmental practice.
Steps in the Complaint ProceSS
1. Environmental complaints from members of the public are
received by any Environmental Officer of the Environmental Man-
agement and Natural Resources Management Divisions. These com-
plaints may be made via telephone, email, fax, correspondence, pub-
lic spirited members visiting the EPA, and by reports from Envi-
ronmental Officers in the field. All relevant informatiop~required in
relation to a complaint is obtained from the complainant and is re-
corded on a special form. This includes the address of the alleged
polluter and complainant as well as the specific issues) relating to
the complaint. .
2. The details of each complaint are recorded into a Complaints
Database managed by the Senior Environmental Officer responsible
for Response and Enforcement This Officer designates complaints
to relevant Environmental Officers for investigation. Depending on
the nature of the complaint and the issue at hand, the Senior Envi-
ronmental Officer may request that details of the complaint be for-
warded to relevant stakeholders and or sector agencies for follow-
up or inspection,
3. Complaints are investigated via inspections after which re-
ports are prepared and submitted to the Senior Environmental Of-
ficer for review. From this review the SEO makes recommendations
for follow-up actions regarding the complaint. These are submitted
to the Director of the Environmental Management Division for ac-
4. Where necessary, Sectoral Agencies can be asked to conduct
inspections jointly with the EPA.
5. The actions taken by the EPA to resolve the complaint, fol-
low-up action required, referral of complaint, responsibility of such
action (s) and completion of such as recommended by the Senior
Environmental Officer and Divisional Director and are recorded into
the Complaints Database.
6. Letters are sent to polluters to follow-up on progress of miti
gation measures as recommended by the EPA. Feedback on such
progress is relayed to the complainant.
7. Electronic copies and hard :7L
copies of the findings of all in-
spections and follow-up actions
are stored in the Agency.
An environmental complaint can be made to the EPA relating
to a public nuisance. Depending on the nature of the complaint,
the EPA will schedule an inspection or refer the complaint to the
relevant stakeholder e.g. Sectoral Agency.
The EPA is committed to taking measures to encourage
compliance with its Regulations. This can only be achieved if
all persons act with vigilance and responsibility towards the
environment. Vigilance on the part of the Public will ensure
that defaulters are made to be compliant with the expected
norms of environmental practice. Responsibility on the part
of aHl, but especially developers, will ascertain good environ-
mental quality for all Guyanese.

ARIES -- If you're looking to add some romance to your life today, look no further
than your current social circle. You have a lot in common with someone who has a 10
of interest in you -- haven't you noticed? It's time to consider giving them a try. Yoi
might be afraid that by getting romantic you could risk losing a friendship, but then:
is a strong foundation there, and the odds are definitely in your favor. Put out a fevl
feelers and see what other people think about the two of you.
TAURUS -- Watch yourself around the most influential people in your life today
You definitely want to come off as confident and capable, but there is a fine lin<
between having a healthy ego and having an; inflated ego -- do you know how to sta)
on the right side of it? Don't be pompous about your achievements -- people are wel
aware of the magic yoli have created; there ~is no need to remind them of it again. I
you play things cool, you'll make one hot impression.
GEMINI -- It is very possible that your: opinionated side could make you a fev
enemies today, but it's much likelier that iiwill earn you quite a few fans! People like
someone who's ready to speak their mind, because not everyone has the ability to de
so. Get used to the fact that you speak for a lot of people when you speak out. Thi:
is a new phase of power in your life. Your yoice can create change. Now the onhl
question is this: What do you want to start changing?
CANCER -- Following your impulses is a very risky strategy today -- it could
pay off big, or it could lead you down a negative path. You're usually smart to trust
your gut on things, but right now there are several unknown factors at work behind
the scenes. So don't base your decisions or judgments solely on what you know to-
day -- it's what you don't know that could matter the most. Tost some good solid
facts into the mix. Ask people in the know what's really going on.
LEO -- In need of an ego boost? Then today, whatever you do, you should avoid
the world of celebrities and fashion magazines. The messages they give you are not
empowering or positive! Instead, get together with one or two of your closest friends
-- the imperfect but oh-so-perfect-for-you people who always remind you that you
are a special person! This is a wonderful day for long conversations that go nowhere
but that leave you with a warm and tingly loved feeling.
VIRGO -- If you want to volunteer your time, do it for the right reasons. Don't
just do it because someone important asked you to. You cannot brag about being
selfless if you're doing it only to look good or impress someone. Besides, there's no
point in helping others if your true goal is to help yourself. Make sure you are hon-
est about your motivations. Everyone will respect you a lot more if you are true to
yourself and do what you really want to do.
LIBRA .-- Despite the dramas going on at work or school, you should keep on
chatting with your friends and enjoying life. You don't have to get involved in this
latest kafuffle -- so why even let it cross your mind? Other people's problems are
other people's problems. They got themselves into this rness, and if you try to help
them out of it, you'll only end up getting dirty yourself. Stick with your friends to-
day and be grateful you have such cool people in your life.
SCORPIO -- Even if you're feeling underappreciated or undervalued at work, don't
ask for a raise right now. There is a big reorganization going on behind the scenes that-
you don't know about (and probably never will know about). These changes will put
you right where you want to be soon enough, so just wait things out a little while
longer -- they are going to get better slowly and steadily. To keep yourself busy, ask
around to see who could use an extra helping hand. Make yourself useful
SAGITTARIUS -- An upcoming trip is gbing to go'very well, thanks to your
ability to plan things in advance and organize everything you need. Could there be ant
upgrade in your, future? Well, the universe thinks that you are due for some good
news from behind the ticket counter (for a changee, so lucky things are looking very.
possible! Your good fortune can be given a real boost by a smile and charming com-S
ment, so don't be afraid to work your personality.
CAPRICORN -- You have no business trying to fix other people's problems, so
Feel free to bow out of the drama today. They might think it's your job to make their
lives happy and complete, but they need to find out sooner or later that they're inl
charge of their own happiness. There's no need-to feel as though you're putting them:
in a rough spot by not coming to their rescue. You're actually doing them a favor. by
helping them leamn a very important lesson about actions and consequences.
AQUJARIUS -- Whether you like it or not, you will have to make a big compro-
mise today. They want chocolate, but you want vanilla -- so why not opt for fudge
ripple? They have a crush on the same person you~have a crush on -- so why don't
both of you just be friends with that person and see how it goes? There are all sorts
of creative ways to get around the b~oiflicts -in your life, and~you are equipped with
all the imagination-and diplomacy that' are necessary to make things work.
. PISCES -- Your mind nughtbe wNandering all over the place when you're just starting
out your day today, but just hang on an hour or so! Don't waste your time trying to
figure out how to stay focused. Just proceed with your normal routine, and every-
thing will fall into place -- including your concentration skills. So if you can make_ this

He had particular reason for concern, as studies suggest Spain would be one of the first wine-
growing areas to become unviable.
The effects on cooler regions, however, might be beneficial, at least initially.
In Bordeaux, for instance, recent vintages have been acclaimed, following a succession of warm
summers that have allowed it to ripen its grapes more consistently than before.
The US study suggested that climate change could make viticulture much more successful in north-
ern parts of Europe, at the expense of Spain, Italy and the south of France-

As a farmer who has seen many unexpected weather everits in his time, he is reluctant to say
definitively that the climate is in flux.
"What we can say is we have an impression that change is happening. Are we in crisis mode? No
we're not." ..
In any case, Napa Valley growers believe their proximity to the Pacific coast may protect them
from the worst effects of climate change.
"As the iinter of California heats up, coastal regions actually cool off," says Terry Hall, a spokes-

Napa's refusal to panic over climate change does not mean it is un~caonred, however.
Mr.Hall says it is vital not just to accept that climate change is under way, but to "make that a

In Sinskey's case, it means trying to make practices as environmentally friendly as possible.
Walking round the vineyard, winemaker Jeff Virnig shows how he allows grass and plants to grow
between the vines, to recycle organic material into the-soil. 'Hae grass is grazed by sheep.
"One of the reasons we've gone to organic farming practices is we figured we'd be better able to

By raising the level of organic material in the soil, he explains, it can' hold more water, which is
useful both in dry and wet periods.

Robert Sinskey believes that as someone who makes a living off the land, he has a responsibility
to work in "the most efficient, least intrusive way possible".
He says that also makes good business sense.
"~Our customer base are highly educ~atd. If they're not practising green, they're thinking bout it.

quietly to avoid waking Charles, who would have asked
why she was getting ready so early. Then she paced
up and down, or stationed herself at the window to look

way between the market pillars, and in the pale glow
of the sunrise you could read the chemist's names in
block capitals above the closed shutters of his shop.
When the clock said quarter past seven she went
across to the Golden Lion. Art~mise came down yawn-

who lives in a far advanced economy telling him or her

Down where the river beats itself against the stones
And washes them in clouds of frothy spray,
Or foaming, fumbles through them with the thousand
Of an orchestra.
The women wash, and humming keep a sort of time;
And families of bubbles frisk and float away
To be destroyed,
Like all the baffled hopes that had their little suns,
Tossed on the furious drifts of disappointments.
But all the tide
Cradles these clinging bubbles ever still, alike
The friendly little hopes that never leave the heart.
What to do: Write a paragraph to describe the place
where the river beats itself against the stones. Show
it to a study partner. Together you can-discuss the
use of appropriate words and phrases of description

Medical experts say electronic devices, such as music players or
mobile phones, on their own do not attract lightning.
But in the Vancouver man's case, "the combination of sweat and
metal earphones directed the current to, and through, the patient's
head," wrote Drs Eric J Heffernan, Peter L Munk and Luck J Louis
of Vancouver General Hospital.
The man's jaw was broken, probably by muscle contraction, say
The current of electricity through his headphones caused the air

The extra jolt of electricity through the wires of the man's music
player caused second-degree burns all the way down his chest and
to his left leg.
In addition, witnesses reported the man being thrown about eight
feet (2.4m) after the lightning hit him, the doctors said.
The incident, which happened two years ago, has left the man
with less than 50% hearing in both ears.
Several other cases of people suffering burns and hearing
loss after being struck by lightning while wearing personal ste-
reos have also been recorded.

(BBC News) Human rights activists have criticised the
organizers of a music festival in the Republic of Congo for
housing pygmy musicians in a telit at a zoo.
Other artists at the Festival of Pan-African Music (Fespam)
are staying in hotels in the capital, Brazzaville.
The organizers say the grounds of Brazzaville zoo are closer to
the pygmies' natural habitat.
But the pygmy musicians say they had expected to be housed
properly while staying in the city.
The Baka pygmy musicians, from the far north of the country,
were one of the highlights at the opening ceremony of Fespam on
It is the fifth year they have performed at the festival and pre-
viously they have been treated the same as other guests.
But this year the group of 20, including 10 women and a
three-month-old baby, were given one tent to share in the city's
A spokeswoman for Fespam said the decision was made in con-
sultation with the Forestry Ministry, so that the pygmies would
not be cut off from their "natural environment".
But the group themselves are not happy.
"It's not good for men, women and children to all be in this
one tent. We need some space," dancer and musician David
MOtambo told the BBC.
"We can't live here where there fire so many mosquitoes. Here
in the city we can't stay mn the forest."
Roger Bouka Owoko from the Congolese Observatory of Hu-
man Rights said the pygmies were having to collect firewood in the
zoo to cook their food, and were being stared at and filmed by tour-
ists and passers-by.

"It's clear that it's a situation like we saw in earlier centuries,
where people put pygmies in zoos to dance or to create a spec-
tacle. They were treated the same as zoo animals axid I think that
we have a similar situation today," said Mr Owoko.
Government officials say they are seeking to have the
group relocated to a hotel.
