Within CARICOM, the major focus today is expected
to be on Jamaica where, depending on the enormity
of the feared devastation, the August 27 poll could be
postponed, with the approval of the Governor General
for up to a month, if necessary.

heads toward the Gulf of Mexico.
Guyanese across the nation, would, quite naturally,
empathise with the people of the rest of the Caribbean
and Peru who have become the latest victims of natu-
ral disasters.

Schedule I of the Value-Added Tax Act provides the list of items zero-rated for VATi purposes.
Paragraph 2A (f) of Schedule I zero-rates. "'a supply of locally produced garments". Therefore,
Clothing produced by local manufacturers is not subject to VAT at. the standard rate of sixteen percent .
(16%/;). This would include locally produced school uniforms such as: shirts, pants, skirts, kimonos
and dresses.

Please be advised that even though this publication addresses VAT ~on school uniforms, the provision
which zero-rates locally produced garments is not limited to school uniforms. Other articles of
cloth ing which are locally manufactured are zero-rated for VAT purposes.

It is important to note that cloth is not zero-rated and as such, w iII attract VAT at. the standard rate of
sixteen percent (16%) regardless of whether the cloth may be used to make school uniforms.
However, clothing manufacturers, registered for VAT, will be able to claim any input VAT that was
paid for supplies purchased to produce their zero-rated items.

HIV's double h it

on b rain ceIls
HIV can trigger learning and memory deficits by
launching a double attack on the brain, research shows.
It was already known that a protein on the surface of-
the virus could kill off mature brain cells.
But the latest study shows it also prevents the pro-
duction of replacements by crippling cells with the poten-
tia tse8 Uin anitak tfCe if rcia at San Diego study ap-
pears in the journal Cell Stem Cell.
The researchers hope their work, which was carried out
on mice, will aid efforts to find new ways to combat HIV-
associated dementia. -~
Researcher Dr Marcus Kaul said: "It's a double hit to
the brain.
"~The HIV protein both causes brain injury and prevents
its repair."
The success of antiretroviral therapies in keeping "viral
load" down has helped to reduce the severity of HIV-asso-
ciated dementia in recent years.
However, the ii~nslidl;an is becoming more common as
people with HJ V are hungli longer. -
Part of the~ problem is that anti-HIV drugs find it tough
to enter the brain.
Disrupted chemistry
The researchers had already shown that a protein called
gpl20, which is found on HIV's outer coating, can kill off
brain cells by disrupting their internal chemistry.
In the latest study, they showed that gpl20 also slows
production of new brain cells in the hippocampus, a brain
region central to learning and memory.
Under normal circumstances, these newborn cells
become integrated into existing brain circuits and are
thought to contribute to certain forms of learning and

WHAT do an environmental-
ist, a student teacher, an ac.
countant, and a businessman
have in common?
For the Envirogators, an
acute acronym for Environmen-
tal Investigators, what defines
them as a group is preserving
the environment.
Pursuing their goal head-on,
the group has already launched
a website which aims at dis-
seminating information on as-
pects of the Guyanese environ-
ment for both education and
tourism purposes.
Members of the group who
launched their website
(www.enviroguyana.org) last
week, say that they will fill a
need for environmental informa-
tion and for aspects of human
interaction with the environ-
ment by producing videos on
these topics and making these
videos available to the public
free of charge.
The Founding member and
Chairman of Envirogators is Dr
Albert Cumberbatch a

Dr. Cumberbatch studied
and worked in the United States
where he obtained a B.A (Biol-
ogy) and B.A (Psychology)
from the University of Massa-
chusetts in 1974.
He also secured an M.A.
ED in 1982 from the United

States International University,g
in San Diego, California and a~
Ph. D in Environmental Educa-
tion from the Union Institute-
University, Cincinnati, Ohio in
In an interview with
Chronicle, he disclosed that he
decided to form the Group to
provide environmental informa-
tion not only to local Guyanese
but as many overseas Guyanese
and their relatives, via the
internet with the object of pro-
moting tourism.
He said that formation of
Envirogators was his way of
giving back something to his
country in an area in which he
is competent.
"We want to show case
Guyana positively to the world,
to encourage Guyanese and non
Guyanese to visit Guyana. This
website site is important for
tourism and the economy. Our
objective is to make Guyana as
household a name around the
world as New York city is."
One topic already posted
and available for download as a
video is a report entitled
'"Tw ntyOne art ts" Par I

that Part 1 takes viewers on a
journey through markets in four
Regions in Guyana and looks at
how people relate to the mar-
kets as both sellers and buyers.
The half hour docuinentary
looks at the contribution of
markets to the development of

their communities and to culture
and to society.
"Our producers have talked
tobuyers anvd sellers in th em r

our society. 'Where do you get
your produce from to sell? How
do you relate to the market? Is
it a meeting place for gossip?
What are your feelings about the
market?' Questions aimed at
capturing the ambience of the
markets of Guyana.
'Our objective is to give an
educational but entertaining and
possibly nostalgic look at our
society as obtains in our com-
munity markets," he said.
He said that those accessing
the documentary with Win-
dows operating system will find
that it downloads slowly the
first time but will run at the cor-
rect speed when replayed.
He added that the group

was willing to distribute copies
of the documentary to any or-
ganizations at home and over-
seas upon r quesberlasdi
December, Dr Cumberbatch
He said that the focus on
markets mn Guyana is just one
of many topics the group in-
tends to produce documentaries
"We have a set of original
ideas to produce information of
high interest level for Guyanese
and non Guyanese and these
will be posted on the website
for reading and downloading all
free of charge,' he said.
Dr Cumberbatch said that
Envirogators intend to send in-
vitations to 70,000 e mail ad-
dresses locally and overseas by
August for persons to download
the materials and to invite their

friends and relatives to visit the
site as well.
The group will also target
e-mail addresses of persons in
North and South America and
the Caribbean for free distribu-
tion of its materials by Decem-

MAYBE it takes a bit of
imagination and common
sense to realize that movies
can be just as essential and
beneficial to the nourishment
of our lives as healthy food-
Maybe because the Plaza Side
lived close to films, their posters
and photos, every day, the whole
culture of cinema became as func-

tional and desirable as Tony, the
vendor's food of puri, potato
balls, etc. piled up in a sweating
glass case outside the long passage
way to Plaza's stalls.
If it wasn't Tony's warm
fresh spicy peasant fare we took
with us to the exclusive seats of
Box in Balcony, which were
used less and less now since the
post-independence dwindle of
snobbish untouchable British
colonial staff and estate officials,

not to mention their copycat lo-
cal bourgeois examples, then it
was the white cardboard boxes
of Chicken-in-the-Rough
(crispy fried chicken, lots of
French fries, and a bun). There
was also the large Heinekens we
enjoyed, especially when the

pelling and intellectually sharp,

we had responsibilities which
had nothing to do with Plaza.
We also had our steady girl-
friends, and those others who
with their eyes and their
smiles, in their short-s or
peddle pushers pasted to their
curves, stood before film post-
ers like "Go Naked in the
World", "Party Girl", "Mondo
Cane", "Suddenly Last Sum-
mer", and "Strangers When We
Meet". (one glossy- black and

I knew the limits of a life
devoted to other lives less real
than mine up there on the movie

knew their limitations too. We
had to make our own lives.

to live times per tooth surface.
8. Repeat steps 2- through 7 with a clean segment of the
floss for each tooth.
It may be easier for children to use a loop of floss. To do
this, they should take a piece of floss about 10 inches long
and tie the ends together into a circle. Then hold the floss
tightly between the thumbs and forefingers and proceed. Most
children, by age eight, are able to floss their own teeth with
parental supervision.
It is important to floss daily, and the best time is often in
the evening, perhaps at bedtime. If you do not have good finder
dexterity, you may use a commercial floss holder.
When flossing, I suggest that you start with the same tooth
each time and move clockwise around the mouth until all the
teeth have been flossed. The idea is simply not to miss any
teeth. In addition, do not forget to floss the back side of each
tooth in the upper and lower dental arch.
When you first start using floss, your gingival may be sore

removed, your gums should heal and the bleeding should stop
See your dentist if bleeding gingival persist. This could be
a sign of improper flossing technique, which can be harmful.
Bleeding gingival can also be a sign that you have moderate to
, severe periodontal disease.
Most dentists would tell you that neither waxed nor
unwaxed floss is better. It's the mechanical action of floss-
ing that reduces plaque and bacteria level around teeth
and gums and is a key for preventing or halting adult
tooth loss. Even though it is important. fossing is cer-
tainly no substitute for brushing.

4T Growing up in Kashrnir's war zone


!'' 1 ~

CELEBRATE THEIR 27'" anniversary today.
Greetings are coming from your children Onica,
Tara and Mahesh and sons-in-law Motie and
Ryan, and other relatives and friends.

While India and Pakistan cel-
ebrated the 60th anniversary
of independence from Britain,
a general strike paralysed life
in the Kashmir valley on what
Muslim separatist groups
call ed a "Lblack day". The
BBC's Urdu online editor
Waheed Mirza reflects on
.Kashmiri nationhood.
On a summer's day in 1991
:my grandfather, a weather-beaten
paperr mache artist of some re-
pute, was preparing to go for his
,daily stroll to the neighbourhood
~grocer when we heard a noise
Militants from the JKLF
and Hizbul Mujahideen, two of
the biggest such groups in Kash-
mir, had taken up positions
against each other behind small,
improvised bunkers with their
AK-47s and a rocket launcher
Unimpressed by the pres-
ence of the gunmen, the old man
sauntered out.
A veteran political activist,
grandfather was annoyed at be-
ing asked to stay indoors be-
cause of these "impetuous boys
with their sticks".
He came out and to my con-
sternation even mocked the
JKLF boys who had stationed
themselves in front of the house.
The Hizb men were a few
metres away, shielded by the
curve of the road. He refused to
believe that a bunch of boys
flaunting new guns could do
anything about Kashmir.
He had lived through 1947
and through various agitations
and movements.

Turf war
Pakistan had disappointed
him too, so he was resigned to
"living with India".
The young men who had
taken it upon themselves "to lib-
erate Kashmir from the clutches
of India", believed that the old
political order had failed them,
that over the years they had been
Betrayed into India's fold.
This small face-off raised
some big questions.
Weren't these militants sup-
posed to be fighting the Indian
ary Wy, then, e otrey

Behind the showiness of
these men fighting for local turf,
a much bigger game was under-
The JKLF's usefulness to
Pakristan was over now it was
time for pro-Pakistan groups to
assume centre-stage.
Hizbut Mujabideen was ris-
ing to become the most power-
ful armed group in Kashmir. The
JKLF leadership, suffering hun-
dreds of losses, eventually gave
up the gun in the early 90s and
announced a shift from the gun
to a peaceful struggle for
"Kashmir's independence".
It' still lives on through free-
dom marches organised by its
longest-serving ."commander"
and chairman Yasin Malik.
jlIndia responded with force
to the rising wave of insurgency.
Around 300 protesters were
killed by the Indian paramilitary
forces in January 1990.
On 21 January, just a day af-
ter Governor Jagmohan took
.charge, at least 50 people were
killed on the Gaw Kadal bridge

used by the security forces) and

vised Suzuki jeep used as a pa-

Many Kashmiris today feel
they have been denied their
chance at destiny. They are up-
set because they feel their fate
has been scripted elsewhere, de-
cided by somebody else,
They feel upset at their

cession in 1947, at both India and

years of independence have been
humiliation for Kashmiris, my-
self included.
I don't remember how much
it hurt when the burly constable
asked me turn around so he
could whack me with his cane
near a marketplace, but I rememb-
berr the sense of insult. I always
I have been away from
Kashmir for quite a while now
but I know from my annual vis-
its and from family and friends
that the humiliation continues:
on the roads, in the streets, on
highways, in the countryside,
during search operations.
In 1989 the HAJY group
(Hamid Sheikh, Ashfaq Majid,
Javed Mir and Yasin Malik)
launched the "militant move-
ment" and saw an eruption of
mass support.
I, too, took to the streets and
beat the tin roof of our house at
night crying for freedo~m.
Independence was rumoured
to be around the corner. Some el-
ders even discussed where to
house ambassadorial offices in

Hindus depart
But events took a tragic turn.
The Kashmiri Pandits, a Hindu
sect intrinsic to Kashmir's ethos
of pluralism and moderation, left
xheo vle in 997.almost overnight
Some were victims of tar-
geted killings. One day, on the
signboard of the Gandhi Memo-
rial College, a Pandit-run institu-
tion known for its academic ex-
cellence and where I was study-
ing, Gandhi was smeared, over
with Jinnah. .
I stopped going there soon
after, because the Indian security
forces had started "catch and
kill" operations that allegedly
swallowed scores of young men,
many of them innocent.
I lost a classmate, whose
head it was said was thrown into
the family's front courtyard.
I personally witnessed the
first three or four years of the
militant uprising, including the
release of four militants in 1989
in ransom for the then Indian
home minister's daughter.
Many acquaintances and
friends crossed over into Paki-
stan: at least one was captured
on the Line of Control and an-
other killed in India's anti-insr-
gency operation.
A distant relative spent a
year in Pakistan and Isuspect in
Afghanistan. He returned with
impassioned dreams of freedom
but was sonl ds llsoonan and
My father's younger brother

was injured seriously when
rogue militants hired by a dis-
gruntled colleague tried to abduct
him. *

Proxy battlefield
I now live in London. I do
not feel Indian. I have never felt
Pakistani. I'm a Kashmiri, but
that feels like perennial stateless-
ness, or like an "endangered spe-
cies" as a friend put it recently.
Some Kashmiris thiink they are
themselves to blame for not hav-
ing mounted a strong enough
democratic challenge to both India
and Pakistan, for not having cre-
ated institutional representation.
But they also blame India
and Pakistan for continuously
testing their respective ideologies
of statehood in the battlefield of
As India and Pakistan cel-
ebrate their 60th year of freedom,
Kashmiris are waiting.
Surrounded by a factitious
leadership they do not seem to
have much choice,
The waiting is tellingly em-
bodied by the mothers of the
hundreds of disappeared people.
How can they stop waiting for

their missing sons?
Everyone waits; seekers of
freedom for their dream, lovers
of Pakistan for some epochal
miracle, pro-India sections for it
all to end and "business as usual"
to resume, displaced Kashmiri
Pandits to return home...
I carry an Indian passport
but I'm not an Indian. From out-
side, depending on where you
come from, India appears either
as ti benign giant on the cusp of
great economic might and inter-
nktional stature, or a repressive
behemoth lashing out at any dis-
sent with ruthless, brutal power.
\Last week I took the British
Citizenship test and passed, not
without irony, though.
I was adopting citizenship
of a country whose coloial fore-
fathers, more than 150 years ago,
sold mine to the then ruler of
~Kashmir, Maharaja Gulab Singh,
for 7.5m rupees.
And yes, they were at to
be presented with "12 goals of
approved breed (six maleamiskr
female), three pal irs of Kahir
shawls and -one horsec" every
year in acknowledgement of
British supremacy.

(Continued from page XI)

Lady Northcote is five
knots, a leisurely pace made
even more laid back by
the periodic swooshing by of
packed down speedboats.
I take a walk around the
ship (those seats can get hard
after a few hours).
The 126 metre (132 feet)
long Lady Northcote was
launched in June 1937 by the
British shipbuilders Ferguson's
on the Rivecr Clyde in Sccotland.
From their wiebsite (the firm is
still in existence). you are
remindedl it was ordered by the
colonial government in British
Guiana as a passenger/cargo
vessel to service riverain com-
munities. Actually. three identi
cal vesscis were delivered.
Aside from th~e Lady
Northcote. the Pomeroon ( sunk
I believe) was delivered in 1936
and the Barima in 1939).
Remarkably, there are brass
plates over doorways with tra-

dtbio n a se a m n'

and "Galley" (the "kitchen" for
you landlubbers).
At some stage, as i was told
on a previous trip with my
wife, the Davey
Paxmans replaced the
original Lister Blackstone en-
gines which were also fine pro-
pulsion units from another great
British engineering firm. Most
of the original riveted steel
decks, probably originally cov-

ered in teak but now with
Guyanese wood, have been re-
placed with welded ones but
apparently the riveted hull and
some superstructure, so excel-
lently constructed by British
ship workers, is basically the
Figures show a falloff in
passengers carried following
the introducing of the (faster,
though more expensive) speed-
boat water taxis and opening of
road options to Bartica. But
there's still a good Saturday
crowd on board. It is a far cry
though from the operations
heyday, especially on bank holi-
day weekends when hundreds
would cram on board for excur-
Up on the bridge, where
Captain Arthur Bond kindly
showed mle around, the original
brass "telegraph" is still there.
That's the device like a water
fountain with two lever sticking
out the top. When the officer on
the bridge moves one of the le-
vers t is mlnd almes ag to tim

Captain Bond, who has
been with the government's
Transport and Harbours De
apartment service for 30 years,
says he can nudge the speed up
to seven knots if necessary. He
knows the route well and says
we should be in Bartica on time
in mid afternoon.
From past reports, the ar-
rival of the ferry was an excit-
ing thing. People, aside from

Loading assorted cargo prior to departure. (Guyana Consulate in Barbados)

those coming to meet relatives
and friends and help with
luggage, would throng to the
selling to see~ who's who com-
ing off.
Now, people have more im-
portant things to do these days
than coming to gawk at strang-
ers. -
On shore, I stay once again

at the "Hi Lo" guest house run
by the hospitable Mrs. May
Rodrigues and her daughter and
there are a lot of changes there.
It is steady business, in-
cluding from Brazilian
liners, and some rooms have
been added on since the last
visit. -
.Before sunrise the next
morning, I am walking back to
the selling to r-ejoin the Lady
Northcote for the return leg to
Parika. This time, there are nu-
merous stops along the way.
One is at Fort island where you
can see the ruins of the historic
'18th Ceritury Dutch fort. We -
also slow so that farmers can
load on their green bananas.
They bring then out in skiffs
and toss them up onto the
The vessel's movement
seems livelier now. It is faster
and the scenery flits by. Per-
haps the tide is falling (going out
towards the sea) and we get thle
benefit of being carried along.
Maybe too, it is because we are
carrying less deadweight dthe
cargo, including reinforcing steel
bars and goods-laden
trucks having been offloaded).

It is time for breakfast.
Down on the lower deck near the
stern, the galley is open. You
have plenty of choices: fried
egg, boiled egg, or scrambled egg
on a bun. Keep your "Easy on
the sugar, no milk" for the res-
taurants on shore it's the
traditional one mix up of coffee
and condensed milk, though you
may order a tea. You1 gaff with
passengers such as teacher Val-
entine St!oll, returning to
his Suddie home. You arue thank-
ful to be alive and .to
experiienccy the wonderful Sul-
day mourning.
While visiting Guyana over
the years, I have traveled on
most of the Transport and
Harbour vessels but the Lady
Northcolte brings back special
memories for me. As Guyana's
economy continues to improve,
there will be introduction of a
different type of ferry system,
perhaps the roll on- roll off
type, together with fast catama-
ran passenger ferries,
The Guyanese Govern-
ment, Transport Minister
Robeson Benn and his staff are
undoubtedly trying their best
and are looking ahead to further

improving the system.
To their credit, the Lady
Northcote, the Barima, and oth-
ers have been over the years
maintained, perhaps not with
exacting standards of other
countries with more budgetary
allotments but certainly
with amazing resourcefulness
and local know how.
When the two vessels are
phased out. it is hoped that an
enterprising business person
woulld take them over and reno-
vate them for coastal sight see-
ing tours, dances, business lun-
chcons and the like.
If you visit harbours such as
Toronto and London, there ar~e
several of these type of~historic
vessels. Their age and classic na-
ture add an interesting dimension
to their attractiveness.
We must preserve at least
part of our maritime culture for
present and future generations.

So this year, let us salute
an important part of it: the
Lady Northcote which this
year is a remarkable 70-
years-old! (Norman Faria is

summarily with his consent.
The appellant was seen
walking in an easterly direction
with a traveling bag in one hand
and two drums under the other
hand at 02.50 h on the public
road at W~les, West Bank,
When he was about 10 fe'et
away from two policemen, the
complainant P.C. Inshan and
P C. Aziz dressed in uniform,
who were on patrol duty and
walking towards him, he
changed direction going north
He looked back towards the
policemen and quickened his
pace and on being approached
by the policemen he drooped
the articles he was carryhl.,. It
turned out that the travelling bag
contained sugar.
According to one of the po-
licemen, the appellant on being
caught asked for a chance. The
policemen then arrested the ap-
pcilant and took him1 to Wales
Police Station and handed him
over to the sentry.
P.C. Teekaram testified to
the effect that he was sentry in
charge of the station when the
appellant was brought there by
the complainant and P,C. Aziz,
who said that they had arrested
the appellant at Sisters Public
Road for unlawful possession,
About 3 months (sic) later
the appellant made his escape
from the Wales Police Station
but was later recaptured. A
complaint of unlawful posses-
sion of the sugar and drums was

laid against the appellant as well
as the complaint for escaping
from lawful custody, the subject
matter of the appeal.
The appellant was found
guilty on both complaints
which we tried together by con-
sent. In respect of the com-
plaint of escape from lawful
custody no evidence was ten-
dered on behalf of the appellant.
counsel being content to rely
upon a submission that there
was no evidence that the appel-
lant was on a criminal charge at
the time of his escape.
This submission has been
made in this appeal and forms
the sole ground of appeal, the
Chief Justice had explained.
According to him, Counsel
for the appellant urged that it is
a necessary ingredient of the
charge that the appellant should
have been at the time of his es-
cape charged with some offence
before a Court.
He said there was a dearth
of authority on the point so far
as the research of counsel and
of the Justice of Appeals had
gone but "we think that some
assistance in the interpretation
to be put upon the words 'on a
criminal charge' in section 342
is to be obtained from an exami-
nation of the provisions of the
sections 340 to 348 inclusive
which fall within Title 23 under
the caption 'Eiscape and Res-
cue' in the Ordinance."
He ruled that such an exami-
nation disclosed that leaving
aside section 342 there is no
provision whereunder a person
who is in lawful custody and

escapes therefroml before a orl--
mal charge is laid can c made li-
able criminally for such escape.
Indeed, there is no such
provision in the Sumlmary juris-
diction Ordinance.
Further. provision is mal~de
by section 347. that a person
is guilty of a mlisdemleanour..
who having the lawful custody
of any person or being ml--
ployed by or under any person
having that custody as a warder.
overseer, guard or otherw~ise,
through negligence, or careless-
ness, allows that person to es-
cape from custody.
"It would be strange indeed
if there were no provision
whereby the person escaping in
such circumstances is to be held
to have committed a criminal of-
fence," the ruling stated.
"We are of the opinion that
the words 'on any criminal charge'
.include the case of a person who
has been arrested upon a charge
and are not to be limited to a case
where a person is charged with
some offence before a court.
'ITn the instant case the evi-
dence of P.C. Tcekaram was to
the effect that on the appellant
being brought into the station
prior to his escape therefrom
the complainant and P.C. Alli
said that he Had been arrested on
Sister's Public Road for unlaw-
ful possession.
"in our opinion the ap-
pellant was properly con-
victed on the complaint laid.
The appeal is dismissed and
the conviction and sentence

ELVIS Presley was
the first real rock
and roll star. -
A white southerner
who singing blues laced
with country and coun-
try tinged with gospel,
Presley brought to-
gether music from both
sides of the color lIme.
This week marks
30 years since his
Presley performed
this music with a natu-
ral hip swiveling sexu- Ia
ality that made him a
teen idol and a role
model for generations
of cool rebels. Presley
was repeatedly dis-
missed as vulgar, in-
competent and a bad
However the force
of his music and image
signaled to the mainstream cul-
ture it was time for a change.
He was born Elvis Aaron
Presley, in the humblest of cir-
cumstances, was born to Vernon
and Gladys Presley in a two-
room house in Tupelo, Missis-
sippi on January 8, 1935.
His twin brother, Jessie
Garon, was stillborn, leaving
Elvis to grow up as an only
child. He and his parents moved
to Memphis, Tennessee in 1948,
and Elvis graduated from
Humes High School there in
Elvis' musical influences
were the pop and country mu-
sic of the time, the gospel mu-
sic he heard in church and at the
all-night gospel sings he fre-

cials, and knew great ac-
claim through his many,
often record-breaking, live
concert performances on
tour and in Las Vegas.
Globally, he has
sold over one billion
records, more than any
other artist. His Ameri-
can sales have earned
him gold, platinum or
multi-platinum awards
for 150 different albums
and singles, far more
than any other artist.
Among his many awards
and accolades were 14
Grammy nominations (3
wins) from the National
Academy of Recording
Arts & Sciences, the
Grammy Lifetime
Achievement Award,
which he received at age
36, and his being named
One of the Ten Out-
standing Young Men of the
Nation for 1970 by the United
States Jaycees.
Without any- of the special
privileges his celebrity status
might have afforded him, he
honorably served his country m
the U.S. Army.
His talent, good looks, sen-
suality, charisma, and good hu-
mor endeared him to millions,
as did the humility and human
kindness he demonstrated
throughout his life.
Known the world over by
his first name, he is regarded
as one of the most important
figures of twentieth century
popular culture. Elvis died at

By 1956, he was ah interna-
tional sensation. With a sound
and style that uniquely com-
bined his diverse musical influ-
ences and blurred and challenged
the social and racial barriers of

AVOCADOS were: first culti-
`vated in South America with
later migration to ~Mexico.
European sailors travelling
to the New World psed avoca-
dos as their form of butter. It
was unflatteringly known as al-
ligator pear, midshipman's but-
ter, vegetable butter, or some-
time's as butter pearn
Avocados were carried not
~only to the West Indies (where
it was first reported in Jamaica
in. 1696), but to nearly all parts
of t ropica aned sutr pical
tal conditions. .
Avocados grow abundantly
in wann climates. West Indian
varieties thrive in humid, tropi-
cal climates. Avocados need
some protection from high
:winds which may break the
. branches. .
SAvocados are now grown in
'virtually all tropical, subtropi-
Scal, and warm temperate areas
with well drained soils and rela-
tive frost freedom. In most parts
Sof Europe it is still something
of a luxury, whereas in the local
areas of production it has be-
come a familiar commodity.
The fruit is normally pear-
shaped often more or less
necked, oval, or nearly round
and may be three to 13 inches
:(7.5-33 cm) long and up to six

If you don't have a game
plan, it's easy to let one oppor-
tunity after another pass you
by. Her~e are 10 tips to help you
start conversations with attrac-
tive women EVERYiWHERE.

Number 10
Start chatting~ up EVERY-
Part of the very CORE of
successfully starting conversa-
tions with women is 13ASIC so-
cial skills. It's important to prac-
tice starting conversations with
as many people as possible,
then use those skiills with
women you're attracted to.
Take advantage of every situa-
tion- you can to start conversa-
tions and connect with people
- ~don't be picky. If you can
talk about irony, maker sarcastic
jokes that are funny, or make the
other person laugh, ALL THE
BETTER. If you start five con-
versations a day for the next 90
days, you'll have started 450
new conversations with strang-
ers. This ALONE will go a long
way to reprogram your instinc-
tive ~"fear approach response."

Number 9
Incorporate different places
into your weekly r-outine
Most guys have schedules
that don't put them into close
proximlity with a ton of women
- and then they complain that
it's so hard to meet then. Alter
your lifestyle just a tad to in-
clude locations and situations
that make it easy to mneet
women. As part of the naturl ~
flow of your life. include al cof -
fee shop near a busy~ sho~ppilg
or- business districts, a restaulrain
that hlires al lot of' attractive i
wvome~n and has a lot of turn-
over, and a t-crend shopping
mall. When youI do. you won't
believe how many opportuni-
ties you'll have to hone your
skills for approaching women.
Number 8
Stop worrying about going
out alone
Most men feel like fools if
they go out to meet women
alone. They don't like going to
bars or clubs without a buddy
or two because they have the ir-
rational thought that women
will think they're losers because
they're not there with someone
and they feel like everyone is -
watching them and judgmng them
for being alone. But most of the
guys I know who are the
MOST successful women actu-

ally PREFER to go oult alone.
Tryy this: Go out alone one
n~iglit this weekend not to meet
women, but simply to watch
and notice that no one cares
about you at ALL. It'll be a lib-
erating experience for you...
trust me.

Number 7

'Stay out of the "loop"
What do guys do when they
see a woman they'd like to ap-
proach? They get stuck in "in-
action loops." lu other words,
they FREEZE. Why? Because
they try to come up with some-.

thing "original and charmling" to
say; they try to think of the
perf~ect compliment; they imag-
ine she's not single and that
she'll react negatively; or they
start thinking there's no way in

of the pureed flesh with lemon
or lime juice, onion, juice or
powder, minced garlic, chili
powder or Tabasco sauce, and
salt and pepper has become a
widely popular 'dip' for crack-
ers,~ potato chips or other
snacks. The ingredients of
guacamole may vary and some
people add mayonnaise. Be-
cause of its tannin content, the
flesh becomes bitter if cooked.
Diced avocado can be added to
lemon-flavoured gelatin after
cooling and before it is set, and
chunks of avocado may be
added to hot foods such as
soup, stew, chili or omelet's just
before serving. *
In Guatemalan restaurants,
a ripe avocado is placed on the
table when a hot dish is served
and the diner scoops out the
flesh and adds it just before eat-
ing. In Brazil, the avocado is re-
garded more as a true fruit than
anso tvegetableiana e used
cream, or milk shakes.
Avocado' flesh is added to
heated ice cream mixes (such as
boiled custard) only after they
have cooled. If mashed by hand,
the fork must be a silver one to .
avoid discolouring the avocado.
A New Zealand recipe for avo-
cado ice cream is a blend of avo-
cado, lemon juice, orange juice,
grated orange rind, milk, cream,
sugar and salt, frozenbetn
until creamy, and frozen again.
Some Oriental people in Hawaii
also prefer the avocado sweet-
ened with sugar and they com-
bine it with fruits such as pine-
apple, orange, grapefruit, dates,
or banana. In Java, avocado
flesh is thoroughly mixed with
strong black coffee, sweetened
and eaten as a dessert.
In the Caribbean, this
highly seasonal produce is rel-
ished by almost everyone when-
ever it is available. As expected,
consumption is highest during
peak times of availability and it
is not unusual for one to con-
sume a sizeable portion.
It can be eaten alone, as a
complement to many one-pot
or individually prepared dishes.
It can also be used as a sand-
wich filling or combined with
other local foods such as farine,
and used as a snack

Shopping, storage
and preparation

Selecting .
The best strategy is to buy
avocados when they're still a
bit green and firm and ripen
them at home. Choose un-
bruised, unscarred, unblemished
fruit with no wrinkles, and
don't squeeze the fruit or you
will bruise it. Look at the stem
end: if the avocado is ripe, the
stem will pull right out.
If the avocado is rock hard,
it will need a few days to ripen
(see "storage" below). If an avo-
cado yields slightly to gentle pres-
sure, itis ripe enough to slice.
If pressing the fruit leaves
a small dent, it is too ripe to
slice, but is suitable for mash-
ing. If pressing leaves a large
dent, the fruit is overripe, and
the flesh will have darkened and

Hard avocados ripen at
room temperature in three to six
days. To speed up the process.
place them in a paper bag or a
drawer, preferably with a to-
mato. Leave firm avocados out

on the counter for a few days
to nipen.
Some people think they
ripen best wrapped mn foil.
Fruit left longer on the tree
has matured to the point that it
will ripen quickly after picking.
Do not refrigerate Avocados be-
cause they will never ripen.
Keep ripe avocados covered in
the refrigerator and use within
two to three days.
They can turn to mush in as
little as a day under refrigeration.
Avocado flesh exposed to the air
will darken very quickly. Some
people think that leaving the pit
in prevents discolouring, but the
primary factor is keeping air away
from the flesh so wrap a cut
avocado in plastic, refrigerate, and
use it as soon as possible.
Peeled and shiced Avocados
should be sprinkled with lemon
or lime juice to retard .
discolouration; the citric acid
also brings out the flavour.

Pre ri an avocado, cut it
lengthwise all the way around
(working around the pit) and gen-
tly twist the two halves apart.
Tap the blade of a heavy knife
into the pit, and twist gently to
release the pit from the flesh.
To skin and slice the fruit,
place the halves face down and
peel off the skin. (If the flesh is
very soft, scoop it out of the
skin with a spoon instead.) If the
skin is too tough to peel easily,
use a paring knife to score it into
peelable strips. Cut the flesh
into thin slices, or into chunks.
The flesh of cut avocado
turns dark within a few minutes
when exposed to air. This
doesn't affect nutrition or
flavour, but makes the avocado
look less appetising. To delay
darkening, rub slices with lemon
or Lime juice, and add the juice
to mashed avocado when mak-
ing guacamole or similar dips.
Pressing a plastic wrap
firmly over the cut surface of a
halved avocado, or onto the sur-
face of a bowl of mashed avo-
cado, will deter darkening.
To peel, cut the avocado
lengthwise around the pit, and
rotate the two halves in oppo-
site directions. Gently put the
tip of a spoon under the pit; if
it comes out easily, the avocado
is ripe.
You can scoop the flesh out
of the shell with a spoon, but
in many cases the avocado will
peel like a banana, just turn it
over on the cut side and pull off
the skin with your fingers.
Avocados are great with a
sprinkle of lemon or lime juice
and salt. Mashed avocados is
the primary ingredients in
guacamole, but the fruit is also
delicious sliced and served with
slices of ripe red tomato, or cut
into slivers and added to tossed
green salads.
For a pretty salad plate, cut
avocados in half lengthwise,
leaving skins on, and remove the
pits. Arrange on a bed of lettuce
and fill the centers with crab,
tuna, or chicken salad.
Garnish with additional raw
fresh vegetables and serve with
bread if desired. An avocado pu-
reed with a little len juice,
salt, other seasonings, and per-
haps a dab of olive oil makes n
great creamy salad dressing for
lettuce or other greens.
Avocados are also good in

- SUBAY CHRONICLE August 19, 2007

While there have always been dishonest people
in this imperfect world, the percentage of them
seems much higher now than it was ten or
twenty or thirty years ago.
The criterion apparently is no longer
what is wrong or right, but what you can do to
get away with. Only the other day I heard a
twelve-year-old girl describe how a boat with
a motor had been lost in a storm. The man who
owned .the boat was insured; her father, who
owned the outboard motor,` was not. "But it
turned out all right," she said happily. "Daddy
signed a bill of sale, pretending he had sold the
engine to his friend before the storm. So the
friend collected the insurance and gave some
of it to Daddy." The child saw nothing in this.
Why should she? Her father, in her eyes, could
do no wrong.
Thus dishonesty breeds dishonesty. It is
precisely this sort of vicious circle that our gen-
eration seems at the moment to be entrapped.
To break out of it, we are going to have to con-
vince ourselves that dishonesty is not only a
form of anarchy that can destroy society but
also a kind of subtle poison that is ~extremely bad
for us as individual human beings........
People who choose dishonesty go through
life dragging invisible chains. Even when they
stifle their conscience with rationalizations,
something in them is always looking back fear-
fully, wondering if their wrongdoing is going to
catch up with them. They are trapped in the Land
of Look-Behind.
As a minister counselling troubled indi-
viduals, I see.endless examples of ravages of
suppressed guilt. The Bible is right: the wages
of sin is death a kind of psychic death that
robs the victim of his life-forces in different
ways. The casebooks of any psychiatrist are full
of examples of people who deny their con-
science but whose unconscious conscience then
demands that they punish themselves. Some
demand the supreme penalty from themselves
and attempt suicide.
What to Do
1. Read the passage over, and as you go
along, try to decipher in what sense are the fol-
lowing words being used figuratively in the pas-
sage: breeds, trapped, stifle, wages; death,
2. Try to explain the following phrase in a lit-
eral way: Dragging invisible chains.
3. Tell a study partner why you think the
writer says dishonesty breeds dishonesty and
calls this a vicious circle. What is a vicious

Now tell me the reason, I pray.

The Old Man's Comforts, and how He Gained Them

4. Ask your study partner what he/she thinks
about the following groups of words:
i. justify dubious practices
ii. robs the victim of his life-force
iii. ravages of suppressed guilt
5. Reason with your partner and decide which
of the following statements are true and which
are false: .
i. The writer says that the percentage of dis-
honest people is higher nowadays.
ii. The writer says that the criterion is no
longer what is wrong or right.
iii. The writer says that our generation is
trapped in a vicious circle.
iv. The writer says that there are many suc-
cessful people who are dishonest
6. According to the writer, there are causes
why many people need treatment by psychia-
trists. Can you guess other causes?

Mastering Writing
What have you mastered well in your writing
so far? Check the pieces you have produced,
come up with a fair view about your progress,
and then resolve to develop and use more skills
to improve reader-interest. Doing this makes
you behave like good writers. These people keep
trying to improve their writing all the time.
Do one of the following pieces of continu-
ous writing. Make your own judgment in each
case. Judge according to how vividly you tell
of your own sense impressions and the details
you put in.' Ascertain your range of readers.
Pieces to choose from:
1. Relate in writing something that you did
that was against your conscience.
2. Make up and write a story entitled Lessons
in Good Behaviour.
3. Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper
about some matters affecting people of your par-
ents' age-group in your community.
When you are finished with your first draft,
you need to evaluate it objectively, maybe ruth-
lessly. What you can do sometimes is to put
your draft aside, returning to it a few days later
(This is one of the reasons you should begin
written assignments early). '
Your fellow study group members are facing
the same challenges; you can help one another
by pointing out what works well in your drafts,
and what does not. -
You can then ask yourself questions like the
ones below:
1. Is my writing interesting?
2. Is it easy to follow? -
3. What do I like best about it?
4. How canl I make it better?
The Sentence
1. Incomplete Sentence
Reminder: You master writing when you con-
stantly refresh your knowledge and skills about
Do you always recogonise the groups of words
you write for what they are?
Are the following groups of words complete
sentences? Can you supply what is missing in
each if it is incomplete? Name the part sup-
phied .
Please flush the toilet.
The dog next door.
Sing a little louder.

A very large house and one small dog.
Seemed to be fond of her.
Which both of them enjoy.
2. Sentence Analysis
You know the words old, different, and long.
They are adjectives because they are used to de-
scribe something. They answer the question

Now let us look at the sentence: Sandra sat
under the tree that was on the green. In it the
clause that was on the green tells which tree. It
describes the particular tree and modifies or
limits our choice of trees to think about. A
clause like that does what a single adjective
does; it is called an adjective clause.
Now see if you ~can pick out the adjective
clauses in the following sentences:
1. This is the boy that killed the large frog.
2. I spoke to the man who could not see.
3. Here is the result of your last test.
4. The ground before the sports hall belongs
to Guysuco.
5. Those children who provoked the old man
will be sorry.
6. The poet who wants to speak to me is my
father's friend.

The Writing.Process
Revising: Checking Unity and Coherence
When you revise your writing, you can
choose to work with a peer reviewer. Together
you can check for unity where all sentences and
details are made to help support the main idea.
Also, you can check for coherence, adding tran-
sitions to connect ideas.
Solution to "Grammar Link The Semi Co-
1. Each supporting detail in a paragraph is like
a jigsaw puzzle; that is, it has little meaning by
2. Spatial order works well for descriptive
writing; however, it seldom works well for nar-
rative writing.
3. The relationship between sentences needs
to be made clear; for that reason, transition
words are often used to tie ideas together.
4. Transition words clarify the order of sup-
porting details; therefore, they add coherence to
your writing.
5. Not every sentence iteeds a transition; fur-
thermore, too many transitions may make your
writing awkward.
Reminder: Use a semicolon to separate main
clauses that- are not joined by a coordinating
conjunction. These are and, but, or, nor, yet, or
The acting and directing ability of Orson
Welles is considered phenomenal, and his film
:Citizen Kane'is still studied and appreciated mn
many universities.
Reminder: Use a semicolon to separate main
clauses jomeid by a conjunctive adverb (such as
however, therefore, nevertheless, moreover, fur-
thermore, and consequently) or by an expression
such as for instance or that is.
In her youth Mary Cassatt was strongly dis-
couraged from any artistic endeavours; neverthe-
less, she later became one of America's fore-
most painters.

The largest series of botani-
cal landscapes in the world is
being built in the Saudi capi-
tal, Riyadh.
The gardens covering 160
hectares (395 acres) aims to re-
create the 400 million-year-old
history of the Earth's plants,
trees and flowers.
The 100m ($200m) project
is due to be completed in 2010.
The complex of gardens to
be called the King Abdullah In-
ternational Gardens is a gift
from the city of Riyadh to the
Saudi monarch.
The landscapes will be five
