Five persons will soon be
heading to India, under the
Indian Technical and Eco-
nlomic Cooperation (ITEC)
programme, to commence
studies in standardisation,
quality assurance, library
practices, web designing and
fertilizer quality control.
Prime Minister Samuel
H-inds Friday evening presented
tickets to the five young people
at the National Cultural Centre
where an evening of music and
dance was held in honour of
ITEC's 43rd anniversary. There
were performances of kathak and
folk dances, music, skits, and
drumming by members of the

Indian Cultural Centre: and the
Guyana National School of
ITEC addresses the needs of
developing countries, which in-
cludes approximately 156 coun-
tries in Asia, Afr~ica, East Eu-
rope, Central and Latin
More than 500 Guyanese
have benefited from the ITEC
programme since it was offered
to Guyana, Indian Hig~h Com-
missioner to Guyana Mr.
Avinash Gupta said at the cer-
emony Friday evening.
Prime Minister Hinds noted
that persons who have returned
over the years have been assist-

ing in the country's development.
'The Government and
people of Guyana hold this col-
laboration in high esteemn and
many Guyanese trainees under
the ITEC programme will trea-
sure their experiences in India,"
the Prime Minister said.
He observed that Guyana
needs more persons with exper-
tise and experience and so the
government will always be grate-
ful for the dedicated service of
the numerous Indian experts
who came to Guyana.
High Commissioner Gupta
said the programme has been a
regular feature since Guyana has
been a major beneficiary and the

bilateral cooperation is steadily
Mr. G~upta said India can
now afford to share with devel-
oping countries its expertise in
various fields.
India launched the ITEC
programme in September,
1964, as a bilateral form of
assistance and has since pro-
vided over US$2B worth of
technical assistance to devel-
oping countries. While its
main focus has been on train.
ing in India and deputation
of experts, ITEC also covers
study visits and projects, and
project -rela ted
activities. (GINA)

ever, Dr. David Singh, the Ex-
ecutive Director for Iwokrama,
agreed with the President that
Kyoto's benefits are perverse.
Iwokrama says that whilst
the Kyoto Protocol has created
a carbon trading market, sustain-
able forest management and con-
servation of standing forests re-
main excluded from carbon trad-
ing under this Protocol.
The forest conservation
programme says that despite
having a large amount of carbon
stock, the argument used is that
intact forests have low rates of
absorption of carbon.
There is therefore little eco-
nomic incentive under the cli-
mate change framework that
promotes better land use and

tact tropical rain forests, and
this is in direct contradiction of

By NeHl Marks
WITH most of the country's
population living along the
coastland and vulnerable to
rising sea levels, Guyana is
poised to lead the debate on
why climate change adapta-
tion policies should fit into
the national development
programme, when Common-
wealth Finance Ministers
meet in Georgetown.
Minister within the Minis-
try of Finance, Ms. Jennifer
Webster, says climate change is
a major development challenge
and she said to reduce vulner-
ability, adaptation efforts must
be included in national and
sectoral policies such as envi-
ronmental management plans
and economic development poli-
The Commonwealth Fi-
nance Ministers Meeting
(CFMM) takes place from Oc-
tober 15-17 at the Guyana In-
ternational Conference Centre
and is expected to bring together
som 300 deleg te efrmmthe 52

Minister Webster said the
meeting will focus on the sei-
ous impact of climate change on
growth and development, espe-
cially in poor countries, since
the poorest are the ones that
stand to suffer the most. She
said the cost for adaptation is
significant and poor countries
require substantial financial and
technical assistance.
The CFMM takes place
just before the annual meetings
of the International Monetary
Fund and World Bank.
Each year, the CFFM con-
siders a special theme, and the
one chosen this year is: "Cli-
mate Change: The Challenges
Facing Finance Ministers."
"I hope that at the end of
the meeting, ministers will have
a better appreciation of the de-
velopment challenges posed by
climate change, including those
relating to their portfolio re-
sponsibilities and how to ad-
dress them,". Commonwealth
Secretary General Mr. Don
McKinnon has been quoted by
the Secrtia assy sident
Bharrat Jagdeo has called for a

new framework to the Kyoto
Protocol with Guyana facing a
possible complete wipeout of
the coastland, where most
Guyanese live, and where most
economic activities take place,
should there be continuing sea
level rises.
Opening an agro-energy
conference in early August this
year, the President said the in-
centives offered by the Kyoto
protocol the international
agreement against climate change
which sets legally-binding tar-
gets for developed countries to
reduce greenhouse emissions -
are "perverse" and does not
help countries like Guyana
which have standing virgin for-
"As currently structured,
(Kyoto) provides perverse in-
centives. You can cut down

trees and replant and you get
assistance to do that, but if you
preserve the f orest, there is no
assistance...I think that is
wrong," Mr Jagdeo said.
The Protocol allows devel-
oped countries or companies
with high greenhouse gas emis-
sions to buy carbon credits from
countries who are engaged in re-
planting forests that were cut
down for timber, or other pur-
poses. It provides no incentives
to countries like Guyana which
has preserved its forests over

and ozone. The scientific com-

Olmert delays prisoner

release officials
JERUSALEM (Reuters) Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
delayed a plan to release from prison scores of members of
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's secular Fatah move.
ment, Israeli officials said yesterday.
Officials said Olmert had planned to ask the Cabinet today to
release more prisoners, but the item was removed from the agenda
amid~ fears it would not garner enough support. Plans to release more
prisoners have already been delayed once.
"It's not coming up tomorrow. It's been put off because there
is no agreed upon list," one government official said, asking not to
be named.
Israeli government spokesman David Baker said he did not have
the agenda for today's Cabinet meeting.
Olmert told Abbas at a meeting on Monday he would ask
his Cabmnet to approve the prisoner release as a goodwill ges-
ture for the Ramadan fast month, which began this week, Pal-
estinian officials said. Israel had been expected to free around
100 Fatah prisoners.

TRINIDAD EXPRESS Former local government minister
Dhanraj Singh was locked away in a basement cell for three
hours at the San Fernando Magistrates' Court Friday, until
his bail was approved to let him go home.
He ended up in jail after being committed to stand trial in the
High Court on two counts of corruption.
Singh is charged with 27 counts of fraud dating back to the late
1990s, when he was the local government minister in the United
National Congress government.
The preliminary enquiry was delayed because Singh was
charged in February 2001 with the murder of chairman of the Rio

second tal of e mre hg i ctb 20 t eh 1 Ha It
Justice. The last time Singh spent time in custody at the San Fernando
court was in February 2003, during his first aborted murder trial.
Friday, Magistrate Wellington told Singh he had a case
to answer before a judge and jury and ordered that he return
to the Magastrates' Court next January 23 in connection with
the other corruption charges.

BOGOTA, (Reuters) Colombian authorities were left red-
faced on Friday trying to explain why they picked up the wrong
prisoner in a high-security transfer of a top druglord to a ship
at sea in an attempt to better protect him.
Helicopters and troops mobilized to transfer suspected druglord
Diego "Don Diego" Montoya along with a former paramilitary com-
mander, Carlos Jimenez, from their prison cells to Navy ships af-
ter learning about death threats.
But instead of picking up Diego Montoya, prison authorities
moved Diego "Don Berna" Murillo to Bogota from Combita jail.
1 urillo is another former paramilitary commander jailed under a
peace deal with President Alvaro Uribe.
"I don't think we can qualify it as chaos. That would not be
appropriate. But it was an error because there was an order to trans-

fer Diego Montoya and they understood Diego Murillo," Interior
Minister Carlos Holguin told local radio. "It was a mistake in in-
Authorities returned Murillo to Combita and on Friday began
moving Montoya to a ship patrolling in Pacific waters. Ex-para-
military commander Jimenez, alias "Macaco", was sent to another
Colombian vessel.
Montoya, suspected leader of the violent Norte del Valle car-
tel, was captured this week cowering under leaves in his under-
Aided by billions in U.S. funds, Uribe has led a security
crackdown to reduce violence from Colombia's drug-fuelled
conflict. But the country remains the world's top cocaine pro-

They would, however, be expected to go beyond the
rhetoric and sloganeering of "the health of the region is
the wealth of the region" and offer specific guidelines
for action within a realistic time-frame for implementa-
tion of their ideas/proposals.
The Prime Minister of St. St.Kitts and Nevis, Dr. Denzil
Douglas, who has lead responsibility for matters pertain-
ing to the region's health development with a specific fo-
cus on HIV/AIDS, has demonstrated a capacity for sus-
taining interest among his Community colleagues.
He now has a special challenge to ensure ACTION
on the NCDs programme as would have emerged yes-

the CARICOM Health Ministers and the Community

General for Human Resource Development, Dr Edward

at the expense of the dreaded killer HIV/AIDS.
What has been a sobering influence leading to the
organisation and hosting of yesterday's Health Summit
in one of the most affected CARICOM states with NCDs,
was the grim realisation that more Caribbean nationals
were dying each year from non-communicable diseases,
gun-related murders and road accidents than from the
HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Dr. Alleyne, former Director of the Pan American
Health Organisation (PAHO), was chairman of the blue-
ribbon Caribbean Commission on Health and Develop-
ment that produced a seminal report in 2005 on the
-region's health problems with recommendations for con-
certed action. He was a major driving force for
yesterday's Health Summit.
The Ministers of Health around the 15-member Com-
munity, from the poorest (Haiti) to the most economically
advanced (Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados), also
deserve to be congratulated for their contributions. So
too the CARICOM Secretariat that has provided acknowl-
edged valuable support.
At the time of writing, the summit was still in session.
What is being eagerly looked forward to is a "Plan of Ac-
tion" with guidance, for the public's benefit, on specific
For example, initiatives in the areas of public educa-
tion, including our schools; on changing general
lifestyles', including consumption patterns and recom-
mended essential exercises.
Further, integrating efforts in appropriate food produc-
tion to be less dependent on imports of consumer prod-
ucts that add to obesity, heart-related and other NCDs.
A one-day summit on the very vital issue of the
region's health cannot be expected to come up with all
the answers to our problems. This is not being asked of
our leaders.

THE HEADS of Government of the Caribbean Com-
munity (CARICOM) deserve to be commended for fi-
nally making a reality, by their participation in Port-of-
Spain yesterday, the much publicised special summit
on the region's health problems and challenges.
A brainchild of the outstanding Caribbean Man,
Professor Sir George Alleyne, the special focus of
yesterday's "Health Summit' was to address the
chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) that has
been incrementally affecting most, if not all member
states of the Community, including Guyana.
Elevating the priority to deal with the NCDs-such
as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, stroke and heart-
related diseases--is in no way being done, thankfully,

poll. What has been fortified by
the CADRES poll is the evident
ascendancy in popularity of
Dookeran's COP as the primary
challenger to Manning's PNM
for state power at the next elec-
tion-and not the UNC.
Of particular significance
also, as revealed by the CAD-
RES poll, is the consistency in
support for a change in govern-
ment. For last month's survey
approximately seventy percent,
or 69.7 to be precise, favoured
a change from a PNM adminis-
A similar poll in 2006 had
72 percent in favour of a change
in government--two percent
more than that of a 2005 sur-
vey which had 70 percent call-
ing for such a change.
For CADRES' latest poll,
the PNM got a favourable rat-
ing of 26 percent; COP 19 and
UNC 16 percent. That trans-
lates to an improvement for the
PNM of six percent when com-
pared with the 2006 opinion
survey (20 percent).
It also showed a drop by
four percent for the COP, which
had a 23 percent rating in 2006.
The UNC, on- the other hand,
moved from 10 percent in 2006
to 16 percent in last month's
When questioned
on leadership, the respondents
rated Manning at 31 percent or
five percent more than
Dookeran's (26); UNC's Oppo-
sition Leader Kamla Persad-

Bissessar 20 percent and
Panday, not now in parliament,
merely six percent.
However, overall, what the
poll projects for the PNM is the
major hurdle it continues tol
face--securing an imprehsive
percentage of popular support
above that of the combined rat-
ings expressed in favour of its
opponents---COP and UNC.

Combined opposition
Combined, that support
stood at 35 percent to the

Caribbean Airlines

need to provide more

More needs to be done by Caribbean Airlines to facilitate the
comfort of their customers. A friend and I were travelling to
Canada; we had to change planes in 'Ikinidad, as we were wait-
ing to enter the new plane we were informed by a staff of Car-
ibbean Airlines that there would be a five hours delay. Not
wanting to further frustrate ourselves we decided to relax and
wait as there was nothing we could have done anyway.
We were told we could not leave the waiting area, I thought to
myself (in amusement) that perhaps the Trinidad authorities were
fearful to let us out of the waiting area because they were afraid we
Guyanese would hide in their country.
After about one hour my friend's name was announced over
the public address system. He was told to report to the airport
security. The security officer had the appearance of a "cow pen
cleaner" with a huge protruding stomach; this guy looked like he
could barely afford a proper pair of shoes. Anyway, he proceeded
to ask lots of questions while at the same time shining various lights
on the visa. Most of the questions asked were to my mind very
unnecessary due to the fact that we were merely transiting through
Trinidad. Some of the questions he asked were: How did you get
this visa? Why are you travelling to Canada? Where will you stay
in Canada? How were you able to afford to buy a ticket? How did

How ou g gilou bevis ain in waa? Do yo have sedin
money? Where was the visa issued (it was clearly marked issued in
Port-of-Spain). At this point two other security officers who had
joined him told him "this guy's documents seem to be in order, let
him go after which they left. He then proceeded to physically
tamper with the visa scratching it with his unkempt fingernails.
SAt this point we were afraid he would have damaged the visa.
After about an hour he finally gave up and handed back the pass-
port to my friend.
After arriving in Canada we asked the Canadian Immigration
Officer if something was wrong with the Visa, her reply was "it
seems quite normal, I see hundreds like these every day" we then
told her the type of questions this Trinidadian official was asking.
She said as far as she is aware those questions ought to be asked

It appears to me that Trinidadians seem to think that every
Guyanese is underprivileged and begs for his daily bread. I am con-
fident that niy friend earns more than three times the salary that
idiot at the airport works for.
I think Caribbean Airlines need to do something to protect their
passengers from unprofessional and overbearing airport officials or
else they will continue to lose market share. They should offer a
straight flight to Canada. I am sure if Guyanese can avoid in tran-
siting through Trinidad they would.
The whole CARICOM concept to my mind is a waste of
time and money.

The President's power under Article 188 of the Constitution
I now turn to the second contention, that is, does the Presi-
dent have the power to issue a pardon to a person not convicted of
ano ce
Article 188 of the Constitution, as far as it is relevant, pro-
vides as follows:
Art 188 (1) The President may (b) grant to any person con
cerned in or convicted of any offence under the law of Guyana, a
pardon, either free or subject to lawful conditions.
It is respectfully submitted that this provision of the Consti-
tution unequivocally and unambiguously empowers the President
to grant both pre-conviction and post conviction pardons. This
constitutional provision is not only in keeping with the general
law of pardon but is also in consonance with other constitutional
provisions of several Commonwealth territories. For example, Ar-
ticle 87 (1) and (2) of the Constitution of Trinidad and Tobago
contains a similar power. Indeed, with respect to pre-conviction
pardon, the wording in that constitution is even more explicit.

Article 87 (1) provides thus:
Art 87 (1) "The President may grant to any person a pardon,
either free or subject to lawful conditions, respecting any offences
that he may have committed.
The power of the President under this subsection may be exer-
cised by him either before or after the person is charged with any
offence and before he is convicted thereof.,,
Therefore, the Guyana Constitution and the constitution of sev-
eral other Commonwealth territories permit the grant of a pardon
both before and after a conviction.
That Mark Benschop was not convicted of an offence is be-
yond dispute. The only issue that is left to be addressed therefore
is whether he can be classified as a "person concerned in .: any
offence under the law of Guyana" as provided for in Article 188
(1)(a) of our Constitution.

In addressing this issue the following facts are pertinent:
(i) in July 2001, Mark Benschop was charged with the offence
of conspiracy to commit treason contrary to Section 317 of the
Crimirial Law Offences Act Chap 8:01. Laws of Guyana;
(ii) that a Preliminary Inquiry was conducted into the charge
by a Magistrate at the Georgetown Magistrate's Court;
S(iii) upon the conclusion of the Preliminary Inquiry, the Learned
Magistrate ruled that a prima facie case was made out against the
accused and committed him to stand trial in the High Colirt;
(iv) a trial was in fact held in the High Court before a Judge
and Jury; (v) at the end of the trial the accusecl was not acquitted;
Based on thre foregoing, does Mark Benschop qualify as a "per-
son concerned in .. any offence under the law of Guyana" for the
purposes of Article 188 (1)(a)? -
I think so. .

The academic

standards at the

University of Guyana

are poor
The poor academic outcome at the university level is a direct
result of substandard performances at the Primary and Sec-
ondary levels. The Ministry of Education needs to do a more
professional job at these levels. While thq Ministry of Educa-
tion may have a strategic plan, clearly that plan seems not to
be holistically implemented, thus we are left with poor aca-
demic results.
The Ministry of Education often 'basks in glory' over the high
achievers at the Caribbean Examinations Council.(CXC) results, and
credit must be giving to those who perform well. However, it may
be interesting to find out the percentage of those who have done
well at CXC over the past five years.
The Ministry of Edpcation needs to put mechanisms in
place to address the rapi'd decline of our academic standards.

Weakening the

effectiveness of the

The killing of Donna Herod was no doubt unfortunate and a
tragedy. The authorities should ensure that her children un-
der age 18 are assisted in areas, such as, health, housing, and
However, while many persons are up in arms over the shoot-
ing that occurred, let us not for one moment forget the bigger pic-
ture that crime is a national problem. Guyanese need to perceive
crime in a holistic sense.
The uproar that has occurred from the shooting of Donna
Herod is just another case of unwarranted criticisms against
the Police Force and will only weaken the Police Force's ef-
fe'ctiveness and enable criminals to gain greater ground. Con--
stant criticisms of the police will turn people against them,
and police work will become less successful. The end result
could be the beginning of a new crime wave. Is this what
Guyanese want?

The Presidential

Pardon of Mar k


I was in the United States of America when I learnt that Mark
Benschop was thg~recipient of a Presidential Pardon. Upon my
return to Guyana, I observe a raging debate in the press in
respect of this psirdon.
Numerous persons including journalists have sought my views,
presumably, because of my involvement in the treason case.
I now wish to express them. I will however only concern my-
self with-the arguments questioning the legal rectitude and consti-
tutional propriety of the decision to pardon.

The legal issues
A crystalline distillation of the contentions as I apprehend them,
denuded of whatever political, ethnic and emotive impurities they
contain, may be expressed as follows:

(iii) that there exist no power to pardon a person who has not
been convicted by a Court of competent jurisdiction; and,
(iv) the Constitution does not empower the President to grant
a pardon to a person who is not convicted of an offence;

A Pardon
Pardon" is defined by Osborn's Law Dictionary (6th ed) as
"The release by the Crown of a person from punishment for some
offence. A pardon maybe granted either (1) before or during a pros-
ecution .. or (2) after conviction .. so that the offence is dis-
charged from punishment."
Halsbury Laws of England 4th Ed Vol 8 (2) at para 823 states
that "In general, a pardon may be granted either before or after con-
viction .. ."
In Archbold Criminal Pleading, Evidence and Practice 2000, at
para 4-161 (p. 367) the following statement appears~ "A pardon
may be pleaded at bar to the indictment .."
For the lay reader, a plea precedes the trial and of course
the conviction (if any). On this authority therefore, the im- .
plication again that a pardon can be granted before conviction
is excruciatingly plaih.
Finally, in the case of Philip v Director of Public Prosecutions
(1991) 40 WIR p. 140, the Privy Council upheld as valid, a pardon
granted to 113 members of the Jamaat al Musliineen by the Presi-
dent of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago after those 113 per-
sons staged an armed insurrection intended to overthrow the lawful
government of Trinidad and Tobago between 27th July and 1st Au-
gus~t 1990. The pardon was granted during the insurrection itself,
that is, before charges were even instituted. These persons were
subsequently charged with the offences of, inter alias, murder and
The argument therefore that there can be no pardon before a

would imply; and for a low
middle income country,
Guyana has responded quite
well to the sustainable
external economic shocks -
some of these shocks are
rising fuel prices,
globalization, and slowdown
in the world economy. And its
fundamentals inflation,
interest, and exchange rates
- are in place; and last year
showed a spurt in the
economic growth rate. And
quality access to education
and health compares
favorably within the region. I
have more to say on the
fragile state, failed state, and
electedlelective dictatorship.

Quite afew attempt to regularly
distort the political history of
this country. Here are some
examples of their distortions:
Guyana has no democracy;
Guyana is a fragile state;
Guyana is a failed state; and
more recently, Guyana is an
elected dictatorship.
Transition to democracy
came in 1992 after 24 years of
authoritarianism; when no
institution made the government
accountable to its people; an age
of coercion where the People's
National Congress' (PNC) rulers
saw no limits to their authority
and regulated all social life.
Today, the Guyanese
people do experience
democracy, albeit a fragile
democracy. But if there is no
democracy, as some claim, then
there is authoritarianism. What
would be the order of things
under authoritarianism? An
authoritarian government allows
little or no public opposition,
and cannot lose office through
legal means.
If these 'authoritarian'
things are really part of the
woodwork in Guyana, then no
columnist or the electronic
parallel would be able to
dispense their regular
opposition and deception; but
these 'opposition'
commentators do spew out
their regular diatribe within
the ambit of the daily
newspapers and the
electronic media, without any
governmental censure.
The fact of the matter is
that Guyana experiences
democracy. In fact. the
international-based Freedom

House has deemed Guyana
'free' with regard to political
rights and civil liberties smnce
But today, with no
broadcasting law and little
media self-monitoring, media
distortions abound. Then this is
a paradox of freedom! Grand
media distortions can happen
amid the presence of media
freedom and fundamental
human rights.
Democracy, however, is
more than casting ballots at
election times. Democracy has
to do with 'election
competitiveness' and
'inclusiveness'. In other words'
the issue here is whether this

quality of their elections, but
more because of the quality of
their political participation. As
a consequence, the PNCR did a
disservice to their supporters
and the nation during their
prolonged absence from the
national Assembly.
And a small sample of
evolving political inclusiveness
for both the PNCR and other
parliamentary parties is through

situations are distorted
versions of what the truth is.

The fact of the matter is
that with increasing political

nonsensical; a serious distortion
of Guyana's politics.

There are two good rea-
sons. One is the argument put
forward by McKinnon that the
Africa-European, summit is too
important to be put off because
of Mugabe. And, the African
Union has stated quite clearly
that its leaders will not attend
if Mugabe is not invited.
The second reason is that
the leaders of the Southern Af-
rican nations that are in the best
position to persuade Mugabe to
end his rule of tyranny are re-
luctant to take action against
him. South Africa's President,
Thabo Mbeki, is the chief
among them.
There are various reasons
\for the reluctance to move
\against Mugabk. One of them
is what Don McKinnon has
said: Mugabe is still a revolu-
tionary hero to many in Africa
because he stood up against the
racist minority' government of
lan Smith.
A second reason and I

in anyway with Zimbabwe
knows that the only way to end
the destruction of the country
and the decinition of its people
is for a deal to be negotiated di-

Others, the reality is that

Mugabe has presided over the
destruction of his country and
the decimation of his people.
Every day that he remains his
country is driven further into an
economic abyss, and threatens
the stability of neighboring
states as Zimbabwean stream
across thdj borders.
Mr MrcKinnon, as Com-
has urged that Mugabe be in-
vited to the European-African
summit in pecember as a prac-
tical ma ted and as good sense.
The sane argument is relevant
to placing the subject of Zim-
babwe pn the agenda of the
C~omm healthh heads of gov-
.enmen in Uganda in Novem-
tyer. I

Mugabe, must be invited to a
su~mnit meeting of African

For their, part, European
heads of: government are
debating whether to bar
Mugabe from attending or not.
This issue was part of a
wider debate on Zimbabwe ear-
lier this year at a symposium at
the Royal Commonwealth Soci- i
ety in London in which I par-
ticipated: Other participants i
included' British parliamentar-
ians and businessmen, black and
white Zimbabweans, and diplo-.
matic and academic representa-
tives from neag~hbouring south-1

Amid great disagreement, 1

Others disagreed, saying that his
attendance at the Africa-Europe
summit would give Mugabe's
government "legitimacy".
It is a similar debate that is
currently on-going in Europe.
But, it is a sterile debate. Like
it or not, Mugabe is in charge
of Zimbabwe and the army,
which he has favoured aind nur-
tured, still stands behind him.
The best efforts of thi: op-
position party and its impport-
ers have failed to unseat him,
and the leaders of many of
Zimbabwe's neighboringg
states, who could bept apply
pressure on him5 are ambivalent
in their attitude toward him.
As Don McKinson, the
Commonwealth Secretairy-Gen-
eral, publicly said irecently

On top of this hardship,
there are massive power and fuel
shortages, and reports indicate
that "price controls that the gov-:

emptied shelves and depleted

man whom Abe replaced only
ten months ago. began his po-
litical career as Takero Fukudla's
Since the beginning of this
decade. mcl-oreoer. the LDP has
fallen into the hands of a narl-
row group' of politicians whose
goal is to roll back\ the changes
introduced in Japan during the
American occupation. They
want to promote nationalism in
the schools to '"rescue young
people who have no dreams," as
Abc put it and to change the
pacifist constitution that forbids
Jap'an to send troops abroad.
This hard-right faction
within the LDP routinely denies
the worst aspects of Japan's
behaviour overseas during the
Second World War, and its mem-
hers exaggerate the threats that

Japan faces from North Korea
and China. (Abe's specialtyl was
the North Korean threat.)
Above all. they seek to build up
the armed forces and thus turnl
Japan into a "normal" country.
Some of this plays wecll
with the Japanese public. but
the slavish lov'alty that the LDP
hawkts display towards the
Amer-ican alliance does not.
It is strangely~ at odds with
the nationalist tone of their
rhetor-ic. and it leads them into
actions that alienate the public.

attempt to force Okiinawa to ac-
cept the construction of a new
military complex for US forces.
As a result. the LDP was

incompetence of some of Abe's

By GwySnne Dyer .

It is 62 years since Japan sur-
rendered to the United States
at the end of the Second
World War, and many things
have changed, but not Japan's
subordination to the United
States. Despite having the
world's second-biggest
economy, Japan is still a
pygmy on the international
stage and its foreign policy is
still unswerving devotion to
an alliance that was imposed
on the country half a century
ago by the American occupa-
tion forces.
it is the deeply conflicted
views of the Japanese about this
foreign policy thatl have brought
down Primne M~inister Shinzo
Abe after less than a year in of-
fice. His Liberal Democratic
Party still has a majority in the
lower house of parliament and
will choose a successor from its
own ranks on 22 September,
but this may mark the end of
the LDP's half-century mo-
nopoly on power.
In his resignation speech,
Abe explained that he was quit-
ting "to pave the way for ruling
and opposition parties to work
together to approve Tokyo's na-
val mission in support of the
US-led operation in Afghani-
stan."' The mission, which ends
on 1 November unless the par-
liament renews it, is one of the
ways that the LDP slides past
the prohibitions of the "peace"
constitution and deploys Japan's
armed forces abroad.
It's a pretty modest deploy-
ment, as it only involves Japa-
nese destroyers and tankers re-
fuelling US warships in the In-
dian Ocean that are supporting
the US-led war in Afghanistan.
But even with Abe gone, parlia-
ment will not renew the mis-
sion. Six week ago the LDP lost
control of the upper house, and
all the opposition parties op-
pose an extension.
The LDP-controlled lower
house can override the upper,

but that could trigger- an ear-ly
election to the lower house (cur-
rently only due in 2009). The
LDP could easily lose that elec-
tion, given the Japanese public's
present mood, and then it would
lose control of the governments.
So the LDP will probably
let the "anti-terrorist" mission
in the Indian Ocean end after
next month. It has bigger prob-
lems to contend with, starting
with the paucity of credible
candidates to replace Abe as
prime minister.
Taro Aso, the front-runner,
is scarcely house-broken. As
foreign minister, he observed
that Amer~ican diplomats would

ne~ver solve the problems of the
Middle East because they had
blue eyes and blond hair. As
economics minister. he said that
he wanted to make Japan a
country where rich Jews would
w~ant to liveC. His fav\ourlite COnl-
versational topic is manga comic
The main claim to fame of
Aso's principal rival, Yasuo
Fukuda, 71, is that his father,
Takeo Fukuda, was prime min-
ister. That is an example of the
LDP's greatest problem: politi-
cal in-breeding at the top, and
the consequent shallowness of
its pool of talent. The outgoing
Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, is

role inl his downfall within

ministers were forced to resign
by scandals and a fifth comlmit-
led suicide but the coup de
grace w:as Abe's inability to get
the upper house to approve
continued naval cooperation
with US forces in the Indian
Ocean. If the LDP does not
choose a more dovish prime
minister next time, it many go
into electoral free fail.
In the past. the LDP has al-
ways managed to bounce back
after political setbacks, but the
rise of the right-wing hawks in
the party may change that pat-
tern. Moreover, the perennially
unsuccessful left-wing parties
are no longer the only alterna-
tive. The Democratic Party, a
centrist grouping created ten
years ago by dissident LDP
members and various indepen-
dents, has become the second-
largest party and a plausible al-
ternative government
The drift towards a re-
armed Japan with a much
more assertive foreign- policy
has seemed unstoppable in
recent years, but the LDP
hawks may have over-
reached themselves. The LDP
may even end up spending
some years in opposition,

Were it not another example
of double standards by ideo-
logues for "free trade", when
convenient, one could regard
as quite amusing the wran-
gling by EU trade and indus-
try officials on the recent
question of imports of Chi-
nese light bulbs.
It wasn't more than a year
ago when Chinese underwear,
imported by European retailers,
were held up by Europe's trade
Commissioner, Mr Peter
Mandelson, in a move to re-
strict, what was then regarded
as a dumping of "cheap bras and
panties" from China on the pre-
text that these goods would
flood a European market, whose
consumers were nevertheless
ready to purchase and the stores
anxious to stock for Christmas.
On that occasion, the EU
Trade Commissioner was "anti-
Chinese underwear" and hence
they were to be kept out, de-

spite what the retail trade saw
as good for consumer choice.
But in this latest trade imbro-
glio between the free trade ideo-
logues and bureaucrats in the
European Commission, Mr.
Mandelson, is "pro-Chinese
light bulbs", advocating that the
steep 66% duties should be re-
moved so as to allow their im-
This is an argument in
favour of trade liberalization as
the "Chinese" bulbs are merely
entering as imports to Europe
outsourced from the Dutch
Trans-national Corporation,
Philips, which has manufactured
the energy-saving bulbs by its
subsidiary in China.
Here is the case of a Euro-
pean company that has
"outsourced" its manufacturing
to benefit from low-cost Chinese
labour and thereby provide the
European consuming public the
choice of the eco-friendly bulbs.
Why should there be any re-
strictions says the EU Trade

But in comes the EU Indus-
try Comnmissioner, Mr. Gunther
Verheugen, the German national
responsible for eilsuring proper
rules among industrial manufac-
turers in the European Commu-
nity. In Verheugen's view this is
a case of "dumping" of those
low-energy light bulbs from
China's Dutch manufacturer
against whom an objection of
"unfair" competition has been
made by no less than, Osram, a
subsidiary of the German-based
Multinational Corporation, Si-
emens, which has also
outsourced its manufacturing to

the demand of Osram, who
wants the 66% duty to remain
on the bulbs. Even more ironi-

cal and inconsistent is the fact
that the high demand for the
low-energy bulbs is part of the
EU policy to contribute to tack-
ling climate change and only
25%7 of that demand can be met
by European production. But
Osram contended that Philips is
importing so much more than its
competitors in European coun
tries can supply, it should not
be classified as a European pro-
ducer and its products should
be subjected to the duty as an
anti-dumping measure.
Neither environmental protec-
tion nor lower cost to the con-
sumer are strong enough to per-
suade the Industry Commissioner

From the social perspective,

along with a multiplicity of

(BBC News) Famous corpses have become spectacles for a
public obsessed with the celebrity, an expert claims.
An example is the three-day funeral "stage show"' of the
Godfather of Soul James Brown. a conference on death and diy-
ing at Bath University heard-
US Professor of Sociology Jacque Lynn Foltyn says TV
shows based on forensic investigation have fed the interest.
But while the public remain greedy for a last look at celeb-
rities, everyday dead of war and famine remain taboo.
Professor Foltyn, of California's National University, said:
"hW areamore likely to see the corpse and casket of a celebrity

"And people do not want to see the face of a child mauled
to death by a pitbull, yet they do want to see the decayed body

There is more curiosity because they are in the public domain.',
Professor Foltyn said the fascination was heightened when
conspiracy surrounded the death such as the death of Prin-
cess Diana.
Lay interest in forensics, fuelled by popular crime TV
shows, has also added to the obsession, she claims.
"Forensic investigation came to the fore. Forensic science
was used as an entertainment commodity as well as for legiti-
mate reasons.
"The celebrity corpse is a voyeuristic spectacle in the

Cath Davies, lecturer in media studies at the University of
Wales, jaid: "There is an obsession with the celebrity corpse.

(BBC News) Dozens of blood
banks in Peru have been
closed after at least four
people were infected with the
HIV virus through contami-
nated transfusions.

240 of the o unmt e's f cit e

a national emergency.
The patients were all in-
fected at a hospital in the port

continue giving blood.

NEW YORK (Hollywood Re-
porter) Many of us saw each
installment of "The Lord of
thle Rings" just to watch lan
McKellen portray the lean,
white-bearded and mysterious
wizard Gandalf. But for
McKellen, film always has
been a temporary detour
from theater.
Now, heading the Royal
Shakespeare Company's pro-
duction of "King Lear" and fea-
turedl in Anton Chekhov's "The
Seagull," McKellen demon-
strates the meticulous crafts-
manship that has made him a
top-flight classical actor of the
British sort. Trevor Nunn's op-
eratic production of "King
Lear" is not top-notch, but that
probably will not deter audi-
ences eager to swoon at the
RSC's feet.
At the beginning,
McKellen's king is the embodi-
ment of a deteriorating, irascible
old man. Entering the cavernous,
stone-gray hall of a set, his
hoary, red-robed Lear takes
baby steps to reach the table
where he will divide the king-
dom among his three daughters.
His hands shake as he examines
the map; he needs notes to
prompt him. Later, when
daughters Goneril (Frances Bar-
ber) and Regan (Monica Dolan)
turn him out of their homes, he

rages. These women are poison-
ous: still, one can hardly bltmc
McKellen's Lear evolves
from an angry, forgetful royal to
a man gone mad from abuse and
grief. Decked out in rags and a

The 3-1/2-hour production
that surrounds this remarkable
performance is by turns busy
and ponderous. Nunn ("Les
Miserables"), ordinarily expert
at this kind of large-scale event,
has not even engineered spine-
tingling melodrama. A couple of
portrayals are extreme and ab-
surd, such as Regan (Dolan) and
Cordelia (Romola Garai). Oth-
ers, such as Edmund (Philip
Winchester) and Edgar (Ben
Meyjes), are adequate but dull.
Occasionally, as in the case of
the Fool (Sylvester McCoy),
the performer is deft but speaks
too fast to be understood.
With "The Seagull," by con-
trast, Nunn makes Chekhov look
effortless. Staged with ingenious
economy on the enormous stage
of the Brooklyn Academy of
Music's Harvey Theater, the

play flows seamlessly, and dur-
ing three hours-plus the direc-
lto str-ikes a fine, entertaining
balance between comedy and
pathos. Here is ensemble acting,
with McKellen as the elderly
Socin contributing dollops of
humor. Barber's Arkadina is
theatrical, ferce and selfish, and

falters with "Lear" but re-

are statistically indistinguish-
able), and 11 of the 12 warmest
years have occurred in the last
12 years (1995 to 2006). Warm-
ing, particularly since the 1970s,
has generally been greater over
land than over the oceans. Sea-
sonally, warming has been
slightly greater in the winter
hemisphere. Additional warming
occurs in cities and urban areas
(often referred to as the urban
heat island effect), but is con-
fined in spatial extent, and its
effects are allowed for both by
excluding as many of the af-
fected sites as possible from the
global temperature data and by
increasing the error range (the
light grey band in the figure).
A few areas have cooled
since 1901, most notably the
northern North Atlantic near
southern Greenland. Warming
during this time has been stron-
gest over the continental interi-
ors of Asia and northern North
America. However, as these are
areas with large year-to-year
variability, the most evident
warming signal has occurred in
parts of the middle and lower
latitudes, particularly the tropi-
cal oceans. In the lower left
panel of Figure 1, which shows
temperature trends since 1979,
the pattern in the Pacific Ocean
features warming and cooling
regions related to El Niiio.
Analysis of long-term
changes in daily temperaturre ex-

tremes has recently become
possible for many regions of the
world (parts of North America
and southern South America,
Europe, northern and eastem
Asia, southern Africa and
Australasia). Especially
since the 1950s, these
records show a decrease in the
number of very cold days and
nights and anincrease in the num-
ber of extremely hot days and
wann nights (see FAQ 33). The
length of the host-fice season has
increased in most mid- and hih-
latitude regions of both hemi-
spheres. In the Northern Hemi-
sphere, this is mostly manifest as
an earlier start to spring,
In addition to the surface
data described above, measure-
ments of temperature above the
surface have been made with
weather balloons, with reason-
able coverage over land since
1958, and from satellite data
since 1979. All data are adjusted
for changes in instruments and
observing practices where nec-
essary. Microwave satellite data
have been used to create a 'sat-
ellite temperature record' for
thick layers of the atmosphere
including the troposphere (fom
the surface up to about 10 km)
and the lower stratosphere
about 10 to 30 km). Despite
several new analyses with im-
proved cross-calibation of the
13 instruments on different sat-
ellites used since 1979 andco
pensation for changes in obsr-
ing time and satellite altitude,

some uncertainties remain in
For global observations
since the late 1950s. the most
recent versions of all available
data sets show that the tropo-
sphere has warmed at a slightly
greater rate than the surface,
while the stratosphere has
cooled markedly since 1979.

and score if they hope to come away with the full three points. A lot will depend on the
rovmng Seon Brewley and former Tigers forward Stellon David in the attack with support
from Desford Williams in midfield. The lanky central defender Royon Morrison and custo-
dian Keith Fraser will have their work cut out against the lethal striking duo of Devon
Millington and Eddie Gomes.
The Tigers midfield will come from among Philip Rowley, Orrin Pompey, Joylyn Jo-
seph and teenager Manasseh Primo. In defence, Shermon David and Delon Fraser will be
the key. to keeping out the soldiers. The Tigers are coming off an easy 3-0 win over Santos,
while the Army. played to hard-fought 1-1 stalemate with Alpha last weekend. Both~ teams
are yet to lose after four outings.
The opening game will bring together the oldest rivalry in City football as the South Georgetown
liallweavers, Pele FC arid Santos FC kick-off the Premier action at 17:30 h.
Pele, the other unbeaten side scored their first win a week ago while Santos who are second
from the bottom on four points have been beaten in their last two games. The traditional rivalry
between these two sides has thrilled fans in the 70s and 80s with a high level of skills and comp'eti-
tiveness and this afternoon another treat is anticipated.
The Pele line-up will include the dreadlocked Canada-based Konata Mannings in midfield, along-
side seasoned campaigner Travis 'Zarro' Grant, while the main attacking duo willbe national U-23
forward Calvin 'Dutty Cup' Shepherd and Quincy Hemerding. The defensive area will be centred
on Sheik Kamal, Kelvin McKenzie and Solomon Austin who had an outstanding game in the 3-1
win over Police.
The struggling Santos will be led by Renault Fraser and national U-23 Kester Jacobs
together with Wendell St Hill and Dwayne McLennon. Sherwisi Hope and Damian Edwards
will spearhead the defence with Maurice Prince in goal.
This afternoon's football showdown will be boosted by a feature Masters match between the
Raistafari Patriarchs and Hearts of Oak of Berbice set to kick-off at 16:00 h. The game is the sec-
ond of a Best-of-three Series for the Alphonso Challenge trophy. The Berbicians won the first
encounter played in New Amsterdam two Sundays ago by an emphatic 6-1 margin, but today the
Rastas intend td reverse the score and set up a decisive third meeting in the Ancient County.
Expected to appear for the Berbicians this afternoon are Charles J.oseph, Philip
Carrington, Kenrick Bonerie, Shenrin Forde and Kurt Alphonso among others. The Rastas
will be led by Vibert 'Dordee' Butts along with Neville 'Natty' Wiltshire, Terrence Burnette,
Allan La Rose, Floyd Fdinboro, Floyd Campbell, Aubrey Adams and Norman Welch.

work at the Cliff Anderson
Sports Hall (venue for basket-
ball and volleyball) because we
want to spruce it up. We want
to attract more spectators.
These Games do not attract
much public support, so we'll
work on that; we'll use the tele-

ATHENS, Greece (Reuters) -
Tokyo, Chicago and Madrid
are among seven cities that
have applied to host the 2016
Olympic Games, the Interna-
tional Olympic Committee
(IOC) said yesterday.
The applications are the
first step in a bidding process
that will end in October 2009
when the winner is selected.
Brazil's Rio de Janeiro,
Czech capital Prague, Doha in
Qatar and Azerbaijan's Baku
had also applied via their Na-
tional Olympic Committees be-
fore Thursday's deadline.
Several are expected to drop
out in June 2008 when the IOC

officially announces the candi-
date cities.
"~Cities aerqle to usanw
a questionnaire, aind theii answess
are studied by thelOC," the com-
mittee said in statement.
"At the end of this first
phase, the IOC Executive Board
selects the cities that will be-
come Candidate Cities and
therefore move on to Phase 2."
The winner will be an-
nounced during the IOC vote in
Copenhagen in October 2009.
With London hosting the
2012 Olympics, Prague and
Madrid could be at a disadvan-
tage. Back-to-back Summer
Olympics have not been held on
the continent since the 1948

KARACHI, Pakistan
(Reuters) Pakistan will
launch its edition of an inter-
national Twenty20 competi-
tion in October 2008 featur-
ing foreign players and six
franchised teams.
Dr Nasim Ashraf, chairman
of the Pakistan Cricket Board,
told a news conference yester-
day the six teams would be fran-
chised to corporate groups who
had shown interest in the event.
"The Pakistan Premier
League is part of the Interna.
tional Champions League
which is approved by the In.
ternational Cricket- Council
(ICC) and will be run by five
boards," Ashraf said.
The Indian Cricket Board
announced in New Delhi on
Thursday the launch of the
Champions League which
will feature the top two Pre-

mier League teams from In- i
dia, Pakistan, Australia, En- i
gland and South Africa.
Ashraf said the new event
would be different from the
domestic Twenty20 competi-
tion held in Pakistan over the
last two years.
'In the Premier League each
team will have four foreign play-
ers, four regional players and the :
rest retired and under-21 play-
ers," he said.
Ashraf added that it would
eventually resemble English
soccer's Premier League, with i
players allowed to move for
transfer fees.
But he dismissed sugges- i
tions the league was being
launched to counter the
threat posed by the rebel In-
dian Cricket League which
has signed up Pakistani play-
ers Inzamam-ul-Haq,
Mohammad Yousuf, Imran
Farhat and Abdul Razzaq.

Jayasuriya made his second
half-century in two days as
Sri Lanka eased to a com-
fortable seven-wicket victory
over New Zealand in their
Twenty20 World Cup match
in Johannesburg yesterday.
Jayasuriya, who scored 88
off 44 balls against Kenya on
Friday at the same venue,
needed the same number of de-
liveries yesterday to score 61 as
Sri Lanka cruised to 168 for
three in 18.5 overs.
The left-hander's t p-class
innings included six fours and
three sixes and he set Sri Lanka
on the road to victory with a
first-wicket stand of 82 off 46
balls with Upul Tharanga (37).

Taylor came to the crease af-

first, had lost two early wickets
and he immediately shared a 70-
run stand for the third wicket
with Peter Fulton (25).
The 23-year-old then added
51 off 36 balls with Jacob Oram,
who finished with 33 not out off
19 balls with a pair of sixes, for
the sixth wicket as the New
Zealand innings ended with
some destructive hitting.

MINISTER of Sport, Frank Anthony, fourth from left is seen here with members of the Dutch and French delegation
and Director of Sport Neil Kumar.

By Michael DaSilva
GUYANA is well prepared to play host neighbouring Suriname
and French Gylpana when the resuscitated Inrter-Gulana Games
continue next month with competition in three
sporting disciplines.
According to Director of Sport Neil Kumar who met with offi-
cials from Guyina, our Dutch-and French-speaking neighbours, yes-
terday, at his Main Street office, accommodation, meals and trans- I
portation arrangements have already been put in place for the two
visiting contingents, as well as for the locals.
The two visiting contmngents, who will compete against some
of the best Under-18 fbotballers, volleyball players and cyclists from ~
Guyana, will start arriving in Guyana from October 18 for the start
of three days of intense competition, beginning the following day.
All three countries will field male and female volleyball
and basketball teams and male cycling teams.
This is the first time in the long history of the Games that there
will be competition in cycling, and already there is talk about intro-
ducing chess which has been dormant in Guyana for over a decade,
but is now being introduced to secondary schools countrywide,
thanks to the formation of a new Guyana Che2ss Association which
is working collaboratively with the Ministry of Education to spread

the game to the youths, who are our country's future.
Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport Dr Frank Anthony
who met the officials from Suriname and French Guiana yes-
terday noted that Guyana produced some of the Region's best
chess players in the past but for some reason unknown, the
sport became dormant until it was resuscitated earlier
this year.
Travis Tracy, a Guyanese by birth who is now resident in French
Guiana and who is an official of the French Guiana delegation used
the opportunity to invite both Guyana and Suriname to send chess
players to the French-speaking country to compete against school
age players in a friendly competition.
She informed that French Guiana started a schools
programme two years ago and that the students are very
Minister Anthony welcomed the idea and assured that his min-
istry would work on such a venture.
Earlier in the day, Tracy, along with another French offi-
cial and Michael Watson, an Inter-Guiana Games veteran of
Suriname, along with local officials including Georgetown
Amateur Basketball Association's president Chris Bowman and

Subhan't adaptation succeeds gloriously


FTER four months of intense train
ing, 22 youths are ready to put on
dramatic productions centered on
A~social issues.
The youths, most of them still in school, were trained
through a- series of workshops under GEMS Theatre
Productions, which received funding from the Canadian
International Development Agency.
The workshop in drama, which started in mid May for
children between 12 to 18, attracted as much as 40 youths, but
the hardcore of the group was reduced to 22.
The children attended sessions daily for three-hour
periods during most of their August holiday. The workshop
attracted students from as far as Bachelor's Adventure on

The children were exposed to creative writing, acting,
directing, toice and speech, improvisation, mime, storytelling,
stage management, and costumes. Other aspects of theatre are
being covered as they prepare for the staging of the workshop
production "Youths in Drama" which opens at the Theatre
Guild, Playhouse on September 20.
The four skits that will be presented are: "WYhen God
was Asleep" which deals with human trafficking;

AIDS; "Painful Consequences", which deals with
cleanliness and waste disposal; and "Enough is Enough",
based on domestic abuse.

The skits were all written by the students, with the
assistance and supervision of Guyana Prize for Literature winner
Ruel Johnson.

awarding of the
Guyana Prize
for Literature in
the categories of fiction,
poetry and drama, is not
simply a financial reward
for those who had the
interest and the courage to
pursue and achieve some
success in the often
thankless task of being a
creature writer, poet, or
dramatist, but the
strengthening of a practical
national project for the
cultivation and celebration of
contemporary creative
literature in the lives of

may sem to inelle talp tr
traordinary to those who think
that creative literature can never
be as useful or important as
practical social professions in
economics, science, agriculture,
polt th y are wrong, be-
cause all the interests, view-
points, questions and arguments
we continue to have about eco-
nomics, science, agriculture
politics, love, etc or any topic
for that matter, can be con-
tained and discussed in creative
works of fiction, poetry and
drama, just as they are in mov
Literature of a creative and
imaginative nature is therefore
not limited to being a second
hand commentary or reportage
on the diverse factual aspects of
the world we live in, but rather
it can be an exploratory inter-
rogation, penetration and revela
tion of these aspects for the
benefit of society. We need only
refer to a handful (out of thou-
sands) of litery works stretch-
ing from a equity to the
present to prove this point.
Works such as THE
GEORGICS" by the Classic
Roman poet Virgil, which gave

velopment in antiquity;
ZOLA. which explores the ef-
feet of dehumanizing labor on
workers, and how political
demagogues can be nurtured
from such social backgrounds,
and man's inhumanity to man;
outstanding Russian master of

social attitudes which divide
people of different race and
class; or that other American
writer of genius, F. Scott
Fitzgerald, whose works ex-
posed the pitfalls of lives
yearning after social "success".

However, it would be a dis-
service to the modern cultural
achievements of Guyanese from
prior generations and pnior gov-
ernments if we were to act as
though the Guyana Prize for
Literature arrived like a new kid
on the block suddenly out of
nowhere, without decades of
modest preparation, promotion
and rewards for the pursuit of
creative writing within the na-
tion. The Guyana Prize in fact
Swas built on, and is the exten-
Ssion of the National History and
Arts Council awards for adult
fiction, poetry and essay writ-
ing which emerged in the 1960's.
The financial rewards for the
first prizes were quite smaller

the prize winning entries in all
coy n Arsto C ounci A
for Literature were published
every year in its magazine for
creative writing, called KAlE.
Everyone could therefore
see and read what had been
awarded prizes, since this
magazine was easily available
and economically priced,
something that cannot be said
for the winning entries of the
Guyana prize which are mostly
unavailable books published
abroad, and therefore not
sufficiently seen, circulated, or
read, and more over much more
expensive than a local magazine
or review of creative writing,
such as KAIE was. This

limited local availability of

doused thugs making noise
while Ramu concentrate's on the
When one of the thugs
tells the Police Ramu was in-
volved in thievery, he pleads
with his teacher (Karran
Singh) to ball him out. But
the teacher lays down one
condition he would have to
move out and go live with him
so he can study properly. His
heart broken at the thought
of leaving Mohan, Ramu
agrees, nevertheless. Mohan
tries desperately to meet
Ramu, but the teacher would
not allow it.
Singh played his part effec-
tively, displaying the strong will
of the teacher as he looked to
Ramu excelling in school.
As time passes, Ramu's
teacher dies and he is unable to
sit the exams. Mohan learns of
Ramu's predicament, a~nd is de-
termined that he will raise the
money. Mohan sings his life
away, in rain and sun, to get the
money and convinces the
teacher to take it, but not to let
Ramu know.
Roshan Khan's performance
as the school principal was too
heavily done.
He over-emphasized his
lines with too much business
and his gestures were so grand
as to be comical.
The plot climaxes with
Mohan falling sick and ending
up in hospital, where he finally
accepts his sister,
Ramu comes to learn of his
friend's gesture and runs to the
hospital to meet him, grabbing
his foot when he does, and
pleads for forgiveness.
Tiwari and Ignatius deliv-
ered triumphant performances.
They portrayed with brilliance

the range of emotions necessary
for the plot, whether it was the
agonizing scene of Mohan try-
ing to reach Ramu after he had
left their rented place, or Ramu's
funny insistence on M~ohan that
"You really have nice eyes. you
know". TI ey wcre the anch~ors
for the plot, and they took it
convincingly to the end.
Subhan also cast a string
of extras that helped the
scenes move along smoothly.
Mohamed, who played
Ramu's mother, played two
other roles: a passerby en-
thralled by the music of
Ramu and MohanI; and then
as a nurse in the hospital
where Mohan was admitted.
In each scene, the costumes
and hairstyle made her dis-
tinct, and so the characters
she played were not confused
by her appearance.
Some of the passersby stop-
ping to take in the music of
Ramu and Mohan could have
been dressed a little less elegant.
Too. the look of the streets
of Bombay street was a little
bit off. Instead of using the
bright colours for the buildings,
a better decision would have
been to use more sober colours,
which would have been more
effective in taking the audience
back to that time.
That aside, Subhan con-
veyed the story of the 60's film
superbly and the play lived up
to expectations in a glorious
It would be fantastic to
see the Indian Arrival Com-
mittee, which produced the
play, take it to other regions
of the country, even though
one wonders how that would
be possible with the lack of
theatre facilities,

The two, both lying on the
street, get to know each other
Mohan is blind. He is in
the city to look for his Didi
(sister), who is supposed to be
working in one of the city's
hospitals as a nurse. She had
come from their rural village
to get work so she could pay
for his treatment. When his
mother passes away, he
comes to look for work.
Ramu explains that after his
mother died, he was thrown out
of the house and had broken his
foot in an accident, and hence

Mendonca's role was
small and she delivered
smoothly. She was endearing
in lip-synching to Lata
Mangeshkar's song "Gudiya
Hum Se Roothi Rahogi" as
her character tried to pacify
Manju, who was partly dis-
tressed at her brother send-
ing off Ramu and Mohan.
The plot develops with
Meena, while walking on the
road with Ashok sees her
brother, but denies him. The
thought of his sister being
ashamed of him cripples Mohan
By this time, Ramu and
Mohan were making enough
money to rent a room and they
found support in a loud-
mouthed Aunty from next door
(Shameeza Hussemn). Hussein's
slouching, broom-wielding, can-
tankerous character was very
likeable and brought some
humour, especially when she

anything. They agreed to be-

Then comes the first song:

She is dressed in a white sari,
lying on a bed, spread across
with ruffled white sheets. On
the pale, cracked wall hangs
a picture of a Hindu god. The
only other thing in the house
is a table. Ramu hugs his
mother affectionately. She is
happy to see him and
chokingly asks if the money
has come. It hasn't. She is
plunged in further misery,
but confident it would come.
She tells Ramu not to
worry and sends him off to
school. At the door he is greeted
by the landlord (John
Ramsingh) who issues the ulti-
matumn: pay the rent or get out.
Next comes the school principal
(Roshan Khan). The same ulti.
matum is issued: pay up or get
out of school. Then Ramu re-
ceives a letter. The company
says it is not responsible for his
father's death and he takes the
news to his mother.
The widow is devastated
by the news and collapses. This

c4 PP You are no stranger to
J winning prizes in recent times;
pryour book, 'Suspended
_s. -(-;i Sentences', has won four prizes
-the Commonwealth Best
First Book for the Region, the
Commonwealth Best First
MARK MCWATT Book overall, the Casa de las
Americas and now the Guyana
~:Prize. A remarkable first book. Another prize, another
interview; I am sure you're asking yourself what more you
can say about this book because that's the question you'd be

asked time and again. But
still I pose it to you; what can
you say about this
remarkable book?
MM Well, I spoke about
how come it came to be written
at the award ceremony, so what
else to say about it, I suppose
I didn't conceive of it, first of
all, as a collection of stories in
a narrative frame; that sort of
thing came later, what I felt
was...you know...you feel the
seduction of narrative, the
impulse to tell stories and I

wanted to get into prose
narrative, to create stories, to
see if I could do as I heard
people doing, as a child and so
on. My aunt was-is a great
story-teller and I always
wanted to try to do that and see
if' I could make it work and this
book is what came out of that,
it took a long time but I was
doing all sort of things -
teachmng, a furll time job at UWI
PP Let's touch on that.
We know you as the poet,
prize-winning poet but
you're also an academic,
editing academic and literary
journals like JWIL, Poui, a
'book of poems prepared
specially for CXC that went
into a second edition. Let's
for a moment touch on the
other side of Mark McWatt

MMI was telling others
that I always wanted to write
but never had the courage, the
spirit of adventure to give~ ip
everything else and call myself
a writer. I also like studying
literature and learning more and
more about poets and novelists,
so I went through university and
kept on going until I got my Ph.
D.in literature and the next step
after that was to look for a job
at the university which I did
and was successful in getting~in
at the university of the West
Indies in Barbados as a Lowly
assistant Lecturer at first then

MM Yes, Il'd like to
make more of a contribution
in the sense that I would like
to build on what I've done so
far. I want to go on to write a
real novel, something that is
more than a collection of
short stories, I also want to
go on and do some more
writing in the terms of poetry.
But also in university, for the
past ten years, we started a
programme in creative
writing and I taught the first
cour in cradiv wdH ig -

colleague at Cave Hill, she
taught the prose fiction and
when she went on leave last
year I taught the prose fiction
for the first time and really
enjoyed it. So that is taking
it to another level teaching

interested in writing and in
improving and expanding
their own skills. And to make
a sort of a commitment (in
few cases) to become writers
themselves... and that's
interesting and that was
exciting for me. Apart from
that I've worked a bit on the
testing and measurement
side as chief examiner for
CXC. That gave me a sense
of where the region is going,
what 'are some of the latest
things that are happening in

a lot to be thankful for in the
region and you know people say
they are sort- of worried how the
islands are going in separate
directions and Guyana has
problems, political problems
and problems of crime and that
sort of thing, but I think all '
countries have those kinds of
problems I think it's a mistake
to define yourself too rigidly
and live behind fences as it
were; to say "this is mine, this
is my intty and tehi i where
somewhere and I am different
from you". Wilson Harris has
shown that the creative
imagination quite easily leaps
over those boundaries and we
take our nourishment and
sustenance spiritual and
imaginal ve and so om from

Sometimes from exotic cultures
that we would never imagine had
any thing to do with ours.
Certainly Harris has proven in
his own fiction that you can
leap over boundaries and sort of
put things together. The whole
idea of a cross-cultural
perspective is very important;
that is why Guyanese and West
Indian writing is important and
prominent in the world because
we have this cross cultural
imagination, we are working
within the English language, but

we are also working out of' a

I love your column! I've never heard anybody give such straight, to thle point, right-on
advice. While others try to help people manage their situation, you point people toward
seeing what as really going on, so they can manage themselves.

Paula, thank you f~or your note.
The most important thing we can do is live in reality. If you have a broken arm, you don't
need to learn how to live with a broken arm. You need someone who sets broken anus. When
your bone is repositioned, it will hurt, but in a little while you will be past the hurt.
We don't believe people need anyone who says to them, "Let's talk about your broken arm.
How do you feel about your broken arm? Can you take your par-t in this?!" People need to act
based on the reality of their situation rather than trying to "manage" chronically bad situations.
Every day adults are trained to be dishonest. Every day kids are trained not to say what they
think. Every day employees are forced to say what they don't feel or mean. Every day good
people are told to stay in a situation because it is the "moral" thing to do, when it is not the right
thing to do. We don't need to be trained to make excuses for bad people.
There are basic behavioral laws, and when those laws aren't followed, our lives are
chaos. Our real needs will keep reasserting themselves until they are met.

We want you to heal.
Our stance on jealousy is
that it must be stopped. As
Shakespeare wrote, "Trifles
light as air are to the jealous
confirmations." Other people
cannot be punished for noth-
ing. When jealousy rears its

head, the person on the receiv-
ing end must put their foot
down. If they don't, the jeal-
ous one will feel justified be-
cause the victim acceded to their
Going along with jealousy
doesn't halt jealousy, it moves
it forward. The proper stance
of the victims of jealousy needs
to be. "I'm not going to wear
this ankle bracelet. I haven't
committed a crimec. I am not al-
lowing you to call me every 1.5
minutes because you think you
are going to catch mec doing

We understand your previ-
ous relationship was nightmar-
ish, but there is nothing in your
letter showing that your new
person is doing anything to jus-
tify your jealousy. Someone
was a monster to you, and now
you are going to unleash a mon-
ster on someone else-hegreen-
eyed monster jealousy.
Take a lesson from the
United States during the Cold
War. The US needed to quickly
determline if a blob on r-adar was
a flock of geese or a Soviet mis-
sile. Cal lmlissiles ge~se. and the
country would be defenseless.

Call goese missiles. and the coun-
try\ would start World War 111.
The US developed tec~h-
niques to distinguish real
threats from imaginary ones.
That's what you need to do.
When irrational fear arises,
stop, question what's going
on, label it correctly, then
act. Relaxation techniques
and a good cognitive-behav-
ioral therapist can show you
how' this is done.

creative literature, in which the Guy;ana Prize remains
a means, not a conclusion. Of course many readers and
supporters of Guyanese creative Literature continue to be
aware of the history of literary endeavors in Guyana; but
it is not merely knowing this local literary history that is
important here, but rather putting it to procreative use in
the ongoing creation, exposure, and maturation of local
creative writing.
To give an example: How many readers know that
several winners of the Guyana Prize since its incep-
tion 20 years ago. such as Mark Mc Watt. John Agard.
Jan ShineBourne, Brian Chan, received their first pub-
lication and were nurtured by the Georgetown mnga--
zinc for new writing EXPRESSION. which Insted from
the mid 19)60's to 1970. EXPRESSION not only con-
stantly exposed such writers to a readership. but
guided them towards The Guyana Prize. The advantage
an older generation of local writers and readers have
over a new generation of local writers and readers. is
that they know both eras of Guyanese creative Litera-
ture, whereas a new generation is experiencing only its
own era. Imagine how fruitful our local creative mod-
ern culture would therefore become if both generations
pooled their abilities, talents. and resources?
Have I made any point here?' Or will this essay be seen
simply as the opinion of a self-centered columnist?

under ss. 8 to 13 of the Trans-
port &r Harbours Department
Ordinance, Cap. Il2 (now Cap.
261 of the Laws of Guyana
(Kingdom ed.)
Counsel for the plaintiff, in
eplY. submitted that -

(1) the plaintiff's cause of
action did not arise until Octo-
ber 5, 1966, when the final de-
mand wkisl likade for delivery of
the articles,
(2) the non-delivery
amounted to a fundamental
breach of a contract which no
exemption clause could remedy
; and
(3) this was a case of non-
delively not short delivery.

The Judge added, "I must
confess that I found this to be
an extremely difficult matter in-
volving as it did the law of limi-
tation under three separate or-
dinances, viz;
The Justices Protection Or-
dinance Cap, 18, the Limitation
Ordinance, Cap. 26, and the
Transport and Harbours De-
partment Ordinance,Cap.261
In his concluding remarks,
Justice Vieira had said, "Neither
counsel in this matter was of
any particular assistance to this
court. In fact I have had to do
all the research myself which
should not be. It is counsel's
duty to furnish the court with
all the relevant authorities both

for and against.
"It seemed to me that, al-
though one ought always to
plead a statute of limitation, or
to make a request for an amend-
ment if this is not done never-
thelesp where, as in this mat-
ter, a special statute of limita-
tion, extinguishes both the right
and the remedy if the action or
suit is filed outside the time
stipulated, then a failure to ex-
pressly plead such a statute or
to request an amendment, will
not debar a defendant from rais-
ing the issue at any stage of the
proceedings or indeed prevent
the court itself from raising and
determining the issue of its own
"In my opinion it was not
necessary for me to look be-
yond the provisions of s. 23 (2)
of Cap. 26 1 in this matter
which, I considered, fully dis-
posed of this matter for the rea-
sons I have given.
"I am fully satisfied that
in view of the words 'and not
otherwise' in s. 23 (2) of Cap.
261, the plaintiff's failure to
bring his action within the
six month period laid down,
was absolutely fatal and for-
ever extinguished both his
right and his remedy. In ef-
fect, this means that s. 23 (2)
of Cap. 261 is really substan-
tive law and not merely pro-
cedural law" Justice Frank
Vieira had said.

"On August I1, 1966, a
case of thread valued $390.00
was shipped by the plaintiff's
customs clerk y the said railway
for delivery to the plaintiff at
the said bond, and a freight note
dated August 2, 1966, was is-
sued for that purpose.
"None of the articles was
ever received by the plaintiff
and, as a result, he went to the

in March and August 1966, but
to no avail. He also spoke to
one Mr. Soodhoo, the assistant
traffic superintendent at the de-
fendants' head office in
Georgetown who promised to
investigate the matter. This was

castors by the defendants but he

refused as they we-re not of the

memorial site at the so-called Bendlerblock" building July
20, 2006. The makers of a movie starring Tom Cruise about

BER7LIN (Reuters) The makers of a movie starring Tom
Cruise about a failed plot to kill Adolf Hitler will most likely
be allowed to use a German memorial site after all, a spokes-
man for the Finance Ministry said on Friday.
The ministry had said it would not allow the filmmakers to use
the site because its dignity had to be protected.
But a letter from the co-producer describing a sequence from
the beginning of the movie may have prompted a change of heart.
"It draws a line from today's, democratic Germany to the
memorial site where the (conspirators) were shot," the spokes-
man said. "I believe it shows that barbarism did not prevail
but that at the end of the day a democratic Germany rose
"Both sides are willing to reach an accord, let's just wait a little
while longer, I think it will come to a good end."
The site in question is the "Bendlerblock" memorial inside the
Defence Ministry complex in Berlin. This is where Colonel Claus
von Stauffenberg, played by Cruise, and his co-conspirators hatched
the plot and where he and his closest comrades were executed when
it failed.
Defence Minister Franz Josef Jung has said the filmmakers can-
not shoot at any military sites as long as Cruise plays the lead
role, and Stauffenberg's eldest son has said he does not want Cruise
to portray his father.
Cruise, also one of the film's producers, is a member of
the Church of Scientology which the German government does
not recognize as a church. Berlin says it masquerades as a
religion to make money, a charge Scientology leaders reject.
The Finance Ministry has said filming is generally banned at
the "Bendlerblock" the site of the conspirators' execution and
now a national shrine within the Defence Ministry complex -- be-
cause of a bad experience with a German filmmaker.
The ministry oversees the properties and has the final word on
matters such as filming.
The film, slated for a 2008 release and to be directed by Bryan
Singer and co-starring Kenneth Branagh, is called "Valkyrie" after
Operation Valkyrie, the plot's codename.
Stauffenberg and his co-conspirators were shot after fail-
ing to kill Hitler with a briefcase bomb on July 20, 1944.

epinephrine to the soluion.
It works fast and as effectively
as Xylocaine. Most
physicians would prefer that
pprgnant women wait past the
thast trimester (three months)
before having any dental
iqjectiorns.Bt the maxiamum
safe dose of Carbocaine is
about half of Xylocaine.
No drug or anesthetic is
without any possible side
reactions or allergies. The
medical community terms this
'risks versus benefits'. The use
of anesthetics, in most patients,
has risks; but these are far
outweighed by the benefits.

There are four general
principles concerning dental
anesthetics administered
prior to dental treatment.

1. All anesthetics should be
used in the lowest required dose
that will provide adequate


2. No anesthetic is without
risk in patients who have
anesthetic allergies or are
seriously ill. Anesthetic allergy
reactions have been reported in
patients who previously have
been administered the same
anesthetic without any adverse
reaction. However, this occurs
only rarely.

3. No anesthetic is
approved by drug
manufacturers for injections
into pregnant patients during
the first three months of
pregnancy. Some anesthetics
are not approved for use at
any time during pregnancy,
and some are not
recommended for children
prior to their reaching
puberty.When in doubt, talk
it over with both your dentist
and physhian.

it strange that we imn Guyana
continue to refer to it as
"cocaine" after more than a
century of its name being
changed. The first local
anesthetic to be isolated and
studied was cocaine. In the
early 1800s it was noted by
physicians that it was used
by the ancient Peruvians to
alleviate pain, relieve
fatigue and uplift the spirit.
In 1884 the Viennese
physician Dr. Karl Koller
introduced cocaine from
another Viennese physician,
Dr. Sigmund Freud. This
popular anesthetic was soon
found to have major
concerns, including
addictive qualities and
potential toxicity.
The concerns about
cocaine's lack of safety led to
the development of the second
generation of anesthetics (the

ester types), which resulted in
the ~discovery of procaine.
Shortly afterwards three more
ester-type anesthetics were
synthesized: propoxycaine,
tetracaine, and chloroprocaine.
However, these anesthetics
were found to have a propensity
for evoking allergic reactions in
a clinical application and this led
to the development of a third
generation of anesthetics (the
amides). which are popularly
used today. Lidocaine, an amide-
type anesthetic, was first
synthesized in 1943, and today
considered the 'gold standard'
against which all other local
anesthetics are measured. The
most common anesthetics
injected by dentists today are
either Xylocaine (lidocaine) or
Carbocaine (mepivacaine),
another amide anesthetic. The
first name is the trade name and
the second name is the generic
Xylocaine comes in a 2-
percent solution with either
1:100,000 or 1:50,000 parts of
epinephrine, a
vasoconstrictor. A
vasoconstritor is an

important component of most
anesthetics that serves two
functions. First, it partly
shuts down the blood
circulation in the area to be
surgically treated. Its other
function is to keep the arej
anesthetized longer since a
smaller volume of circulating
blood allows the anesthetic to
remain at the site for a
longer period of time. This
reduces the likelihood of any
toxic reaction because the
anesthetic is removed very
slowly from the needed area.
Thus, less anesthetic is
needed to keep the area
The safety record with
Xylocaine is superb, although
some allergic reactions have
been reported. It is important for
patients to realize that
epinephrine can cause heart
palpitations, but this is not the
same as an allergic reaction to
the anesthetic. Our bodies
produce their own epinephrine,
and palpitations can be a result
of anxiety. Xylocaine starts
working anywhere from
instantly to four minutes after

injection. The anesthesia lasts
about two and a half hours in
most patients.
Carbocaine is the second
most commonly used
anesthetic. Carbocaine comes
in either a two-percent or
three-percent concentration
without epinephrine.
Because of lack of
epinephrine, many
cardiologists suggest this
particular anesthetic be used
in patients who have heart
problems or are diabetic.
Carbocaine's action is such
that it will remain in the
operative site for up to about
40 minutes without the
hazards of adding

And BMI is a useless indicator in people under 16. Instead,
weight for height ratio should ~be used to factor in the young
person's age and potential for growth.
Alarm bells would ring, for example, if a child was gaining weight
too quickly for their age or if they were not gaining enough weight
or growing.
Body shape can also help Miake the picture a bit clearer.D~

organs do the jobs essential to keep us alive.
These rely on the right nutrition and exercise.
Guidelines say we should eat five portions of fruit and veg a
day and get 30 minutes of moderate exercise at least five times a
week for good health.
And there are a host of signs and measures that can indicate if
we are doing enough.
Lisa Miles, nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Founda-
tion, said it was sometimes possible to tell if someone was mal-.
nourished just by looking at them, even if they were a 'normal'
size and weight.
"For example loss in skin colour, dull and dry hair, red-
ness or swelling of mouth or lips, problems with gums or eyes,
dryness of skin and brittle/ridged nails can indicate malnour-
But lab tests are needed to get a full picture of a person's nu-
tritional status, she said.
When it comes to physique, fitness levels vary from person to
person and depend on many factors, including age and sex.
But there are crude ways to tell if a person has a good general
level of fitness, says John Brewer, director of the Lucozade Sports
Science Academy.
"Being able to walk a mile in 15 minutes is an indicator of a
reasonable level of fitness.
"You should be able to carry a couple of shopping bags fr-om the
supermarket to the car, climb the stairs in your housewithout getting puffed
and cope with occasional, small bursts of unexpected activity."
Doctors can also look at a person's vital signs, such as
pulse and blood pressure, and carry out fitness tests looking
at things like lung function and capacity.
But Mr Brewer cautioned: "Looking at a one-off snap shot can
be difficult. You need to look at changes over time and know what
is typical for that patient.
"A general healthy~ lifestyle is absolutely crucial. If you do ex-
ercise, being overweight is far less of a problem. I would much rather
someone be overweight yet exercise than someone be underweight
and do no exercise at all."
Then there is healthy and unhealthy behaviour to consider.
Susan Ringwood, chief executive of UK eating disorders char-
ity "beat", said: "You can't always tell by a person's size, weight
and shape if the are unhealthy.
"You can be seriously affected by an eating disorder and still
be overweight.
"LMost people diet at some point. Diets do not cause eating
disorders. But all eating disorders start with a diet."
She said there were warning signs to look out for.
"Someone who is really obsessed with food and has rituals
around it. It might be restricting types of food."
She said there were screening questions to help spot when an
innocent diet might have escalated into an eating disorder: Are you
worried about your food? Have you ever made yourself sick be-
cause you were concerned about being too full?
And there are physical signs.
"A girl's periods might stop. She might have downy hair on
her face and body in response to a low core temperature when the
body isn't getting enough energy in."
There are medical tests that can aid diagnosis.
"There may be signs of heart failure or heart rhythm problems
due to the poor nourishment," Ms Ringwood said.
ally n e added: "It's a psychological assessment that is re-

protected seedling production
houses in major vegetable
production communities will
be evident as the National Ag-
ricultural Research Institute
(NARI) moves to introduce
this low cost improved tech-
nology to farmers as concerns
Ioom over the impact of cli-
mate change on food security
systems globally.
This move comes on heel as
the Government of Guyana
through the implementation of
the Jagdeo Initiative which seeks
to expand Guyana's lucrative
agricultural system by providing

farmers with access to im-
proved technologies and ser-
vices in an era of unpredictable
weather patterns.
"One of our mains policies
at NARI is to ensure that farm-
ers are exposed to improved
technologies that are adaptable
to increase their levels of com-
petitiveness in order to maintain
food security locally and sup-
ply the export market.
However, in light of the
massive changes occurring golo-
bally as a result of climate
change, there is need for the ad-
aptation of improved technolo-
gies by the farming communities

in order for them to remain comn-
petitive," says NARI's Direc-
tor, Dr. O. Homenauth.
In Guyana, many veg-
etable farmers are accus-
tomed to the traditional tech-
nique of sowing their veg-
etable seedlings directly on
flat seedbed under temporary
shade conditions but as the
weather patterns become
more unpredictable, the use
of traditional techniques will
not be effective for competi-
tive farming since the in-
crease in rainfall and dry
spells will affect vegetable
seedling production.

According to Dr.
Homenauth, one of the many
challenges farmers are faced with
after the seasonal change espe-
cially the rainy one, is the pro-
duction of seedlings in a timely
manner to commence cultivation
in the field. To address this
problem, he is advocating that
farmers incorporate more im-
proved technology along with
their traditional knowledge to
increase their production.
Protected seedling houses
are economically designed using
plastic film as roofing material
to reduce the high levels of sun-
hight and rainfall that affect seed-
hing production.
The use of disease free
netting as screens prevents
major pest and disease infes-
tation such as: Aphids,
Whiteflies, Phythopthora
Spp., Fusarium Spp~and
Rhizoctonia Spp which affect
seedling production.
According to Qsvaldo
Ferrando Gonzales, Cuban Ag-
ricultural Engineer attached to
NARI with responsibilities for
the project, one of major advan-
tages of the protected seedling
production houses is that it al-
lows for the continuous produc-
tion of excellent quality seed-
lings throughout the year under
a controlled environment.
He says "this type of seed-
ling production using a pro-
tected system will allow for the
control of excessive moisture
which reduces the possibility of
the disease 'damping off'. It
also avoids washing off of fer-
tilizers and chenucals applied to
the seedlings by rain which is
very significant when using the
traditional seedling production

At the NARI Mon Repos
facility the construction of a low
cost protected seedling produc-
tion house measuring 30' X 15'
with the capacity to accommo-
date 104 trays with each tray
allowing 128 cells has been
completed and is operational.
This system according to Mr.
Gonzales will produce approxi-
mately 12000 seedlings at each
sowing allowing nine to ten
sowing phases per annum.
While the prospect seems
lucrative for farmers, some en-
vironmentalists and eco friendly
individuals might qisery the use
of plastic films as roof materi-
als but this concern was quickly
dismissed by Mr. Gonzales
who stated that the materials to
be used are UV treated and
would depending on the quality
would be quite durable to with-
stand the harshness of the rain
and solar radiation.
A simple but meticulous
process, the success of seed-
ling production using a pro.
tected system will require
high levels of sanitary condi-
tions to prevent contamina
tion within the house.
Initially the seeds are pre-
germinated by using dampened
sheets after which they are
placed in already prepared seed-
lings trays that were properly
sterilized. This system allows
only for the healthiest seedlings
to be introduced into house. To
reduce contamination, the
farmer is advised to construct a
foot bath at the entrance of the
structure, use pest free material,
spray growing areas (e.g.
benches, walkway) with suit-
able disinfectant (e.g. chlorine

solution.), use only uncontamni-
nated tools and material.
All equipment used in the
compost mixing and filling pro-

LIBRA -- Don't think twice when you're offered an invitation to join a group of.
people you don't normally socialize with. There are no hidden agendas to worry about;
the truth is simple: someone thinks youI would be a good addition to the group, and

The Poems
Fire and Ice
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favour fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Dust of Snow
The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Has given us heart
A change of mood
And saved some part`
Of a day I'd rued.

Hello students,

Pay Close Attention
1. Which of the following statements did the writer
say and which did helshe not say?
a) Newspapers are produced to make profits.
b) If a country has only one newspaper it will be a
bad newspaper.
c) To make profits newspapers depend mostly on
selling space for advertising.
d) Editors have to make sure thousands of copies
of their paper are sold.
e) Slanting the news is done by most newspapers.
2. By what means do newspapers control people's
3. What is the chief purpose of an editorial?
4. Has the writer of the passage slanted his com-
ments? If so, by what means? If not, show reasons
for your answer.

Continuous Waiting
Do one of the following pieces of continuous writ-
ing. Judge how vividly you tell of your own sense im-
pressions. Judge the potency of details you put in.

1. Write a report of a meeting or of a protest dem-
onstration giving only the facts, without using language
biased in any way. --
2. Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper about
some matters affecting the quality of education in our
3. Write a short story. Consider the plants, trees,
water, lighting, and other natural elements of a lush jungle
scene. TJot down some story ideas and then choose one
idea for your short story.

Talk with your study partners about all of the fol-
lowing and choose the best one for the group to write
on: .
a) Do readers' letters to the editor serve any use-
ful purpose?
b) What resemblances or similarities, and what dif-
ferences, can you think of in what these people do: jour-
nalists, advertisers, preachers, authors, politicians, and
c) People with an axe to grind do damage the right
thinking of innocent by-standers. Discuss.

Punctuate the following putting in all capitals, punc-
tuation marks, and new paragraph(s).
one day as he was walking along the street a friend
of mine whom I shall call jack ratter met a complete
stranger the stranger was carrying a large clumsy clock
staggering along as best he could- under its enormous
weight mr ratter paused eyed the stranger questioningly
and then with a smile did you ever he asked think of
wearing a wrist watch the stranger's reply is not part
of the joke

Cause and Effect
The following poems, both by Robert Frost, contain
causes and effects. In the first poem the cause and
effect are nuni''.i cnerigth ord'idevr-
one in it. In the second the cat'g _and effect are pri-
vate, concerning only the speaker. Choose one of ty
poems, and write a paragraph explaining its meaning in
terms of cause and effect.

Let's renew our short talk about study habits. For
study to become a habit, much time must be set aside
for its indulgence. We str~ess now that such time be
used economically, where learning output becomes pro-
gressively greater each work session. There is a use-
ful approach to all of this:
a) Have a well thought out timeline for the ar-
eas of study covering present time to dates of exami-
nations. .
b) Have a flexible daily time-table for seven days
of the week recognising time for travel, eating, house-
hold chores, and leisure activities among other impor-
tant aspects of daily living.
c) Plan to cover an amount of study content for
each time-tabled session.
c) Recognise that a session can have three dis-
tinct sections: start-up, study, arid cooling down.
Do enjoy today's issue. Love you.

The Passage
A newspaper is usually a private business firm like
any other business. firm or company, owned by share-
holders who wish to make as large a profit as possible.
Often the most important rule which the directors of a
newspaper must follow is to make profits for the share-
holders. Thus, whatever a newspaper prints has to help
in some way to increase profits. Therefore, since sell-
ing space for advertisements provides most of their prof-
its the editor has to do whatever necessary to attract
businessmen to advertise in his paper. The business-
men, in turn, must kmnow that many people read the pa-
per. Hence the director and his staff have to see that
the paper has a wide circulation. This makes them put
into their paper what they judge to be interesting to the
thousands whom they wish to buy copies.
In a large population many papers can thrive. Each
one may be popular with a particular section of the
population. So they usually differ in what they print.
Some have their circulation among highly educated
people, while others are produced for the least educated.
In small countries, however, one often finds only two
daily newspapers, and sometimes only one. In such
places the paper is likely to aimr to please the majority
of the people, whether educated or uneducated.
Some of the features used to attract readers are lo-
cal and foreign news reports, articles by regular jour-
nalists, comic strips and cartoons, crossword puzzles,
readers' letters on current affairs, book reviews, film
reviews, play reviews, photographs, sports news, pages
for women or children only, and so on. Newspapers
for the least educated people have more photographs,
comic strips and sports news; and the topics of the ar-
ticles are usually triviaL
SOn the editorial page the editor, or someone he asks,
-writes opinions on current affairs. These opinions are
usually ones which the shareholders and advertisers like,
but not always. For example, they are not likely to
agree with a traag t'jan th~at calls a strike. But opin-
ions in the paper also have to please' *he readers. So
part of the job of the staff is to make the readers I1KG
the opinions that the shareholder and advertisers like.
How this is done? Well, the chief means is to give
the news in a slanted or biased way, putting in opinions
with some facts of the news.

Marshall said the scientists
probably discovered new spe-
cies of beetles. ants. frogs. ka-
tydids. butterflies and catfish,
but the specimens haven't been
described or analyzed yet.
Many of the specimens are
being examined by OSU re-

MUMBAI: Not too many cineastes would recall Juhi

who's tempted to spend a night with business tycoon Anil
The remake of the Robert Redford-Demi Moore starrer "An
Indecent Proposal" was a fiasco.
'"That's because the film got delayed. By the time 'Karobaar'
came out the story was stale. Anyway, Juhi is working with us
again," Roshan told IANS.
The lovely actress last seen as a demure wife in Ganesh
Acharya s "Swami". has been cast as psychiatrist in Roshan's
