According to Dr. Anthon'.
while this figure is similar to
those of Jamaica. the Bahamas
and Haiti, his Ministry along
ivith otheroarganisations leading
the battle to elimlinate the dis-
ease should not be complacent.
He explained that their
main focus is to ensure that this
is achieved is by creating
behavioral change among
young people. Besides this
problem, he said his Ministry
is also working to control sev
eral other ills of society includ-
ing drug and alcohol abuse,
teenage pregnancy and diseases
caused by lack of exercise.
He added that while formal

Minister of Culture, Youth
and Spart is imiploring
youths to see themselves as
leaders and architects of so-
cial change in society, noting
that another 10 to 20 years
down the road they will be
ones at the helm of high of-
fices. In1 this regard, he called
on employers to acknowledge
that youths can play a signifi-
cant role in advancing their
organisation but their ability
should be continuously nur-
tured and preserved in order
foi- this to be achieved.
Dr. Frank Anthony called on
the National .Association of Ag-
ricultural, Commercial and In-
dustrial Workers Union Em-
ployees (NAACIE) to play an
active role in grooming its young
members in choosing a career

path which will be of great ben-
efit to the union.
He made the call at the
union's inaugural youth confer-
ence held yesterday at the
CARIFESTA Sports Complex
under the theme "Mobilisin~g
anld Organising Youths for a
better Union and Future.'
The minister added that the
move is imperative because it
places youths on a path to stra-
tegically plan their future rather
than wallowing along the trail of
uncertainty of opportunities
with the passing of time-.
The minister has also called
on the sizable gathering of
youths to take their education

seriously because it is the ve-
hicle to cross them over the road
of the many obstacles in soci
"You should not be con-
tented with a secondary educa-
tion, but should aspire to move
on to university and get a good
job which will aid in your per
sonal development and the ben
efit of the union," he urged.
Dr. Anthony also warned
that school drop-outs should not
be neglected and on this note
called on NAACIE to collabo-
rate with his Ministry on

A new climate agreement
which builds on the United
Nations Framework Conven-
tion on Climate Change and
the Kyoto Protocol is ex-
pected to be the focus of talks
at a special United Nations
(UN) Climate Change Sum-
mit which opens in New York
on Monday, September 24.
Guyana 's Head of State
President Bharrat Jagdeo will
join over 150 political leaders at
the Summit to present their
ideas on the action needed in the

areas of mitigation, adaptation,
technology and finance.
It is no secret that the Head
of State has been adamant that
countries with standing forest
should be rewarded with carbon
credits and he has time and
again expressed his disappoint-
ment that the current climate
agreement, the Kyoto Protocol,
does not offer developing coun-
tries incentives.
In a special interview before
departing for the United States
of America the President said,

"Unfortunately as I have been
saying here in Guyana for a
quite a while now, the Kyoto
Protocol ... did not provide in-
centives to countries like ours
that have abundant rainforest
and are preserving these
rainforest for the benefit of the
world, so we are trying to
change that. We are now argu-
ing that there must be incentives
for these countries that practice
sustainable forestry manage-
ment. That is one of the reasons
why I am going to this special

session organised by the United
Nations Secretary General."
The issue of climate change
and its impact on ecosystems
worldwide has gained significant
prominence in world debate.
This, the President said would
bring greater focus to bear on the
role the world must play to re-
duce the speedily evolving pro-
cess of climate change through
green house gas emissions and
create a better environment.
"I think it is very impor-
tant, if we sustain in what we
are lobbying for now, in the fu-
ture maybe the next five, ten
years Guyana will benefit from
hundreds of millions of US dol-
lars per annum in carbon cred-
its because with the amount of
greenhouse gas sinks that we
have, ....if it is remunerated at
the current market value it could
range as high as US$5M per
year for Guyana, without touch-
ing the forests. That would be
more than we earn from baux-
ite, sugar and rice combined."
The meeting is expected to
send a clear message to the

UN's Climate Change Summnit in
Bali scheduled for December,
to launch formal negotiations
for a climate agreement.
"We will be there promi-
nently represented (at the Bali
Summit) but I intend to be very
forceful at this meeting, it's an
interactive session. I am very,
very disappointed that the ma-
jor countries of the world are
not making the commitment
necessary first of all to secure
the environment for the future,
and secondly, to assist coun-
tries like ours.
He explained that the major-
ity of funds garnered for climate
change mitigation measures have
remained in the developed world
and the developing world have
benefited very little from these
The President said, "Even
the Clean Development Mecha-
nism, part of the Kyoto Proto-
col is a very cumbersome pro-
cess to get any assistance
through. I've been saying, if we
are helping to preserve the for-
est, there is an opportunity cost

Ex-president Fujimori arrives in Peru for trial

By Hossein Jaseb and Fredrik Dahl

TEHRAN (Reuters) Iran told Western powers on Saturday
they would regret anly attack against the country over its
nuclear activities, and it rolled out a display of missiles and
other military hardware that underscored.the warning.
"Our message to the enemies is: Do not do it," the head of Iran's
elite Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, said, speaking
to reporters less than a week after France's foreign minister pub.
licly raised the prospect of war.
"They will regret it, as they are regretting it in Iraq," the com-
mander added, speaking on the sidelines of an annual military pa-
rade just outside the capital.
Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, gave a
similarly defiant message in a meeting with top officials
including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, saying who-
ever attacked Iran "will face the consequences", state tele-
vision reported.
At the parade, the Islamic Republic put on show medium-range
missiles it has said could reach Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf at
the parade marking the 1980-88 Iran-iraq war.
Three Saegheh jet fighters, a new generation of domestically pro-
duced military aircraft, flew overhead.

walked away from the protocol
in 2001 and Canada says it can-

out as a pivotal moment in the

kidnapping and violence amid prevailing abject pov-

In this context it is quite relevant to ask what pre-

rhetoric--to assist Haiti in helping to deal with the
human rights climate by, for example, enabling
proper functioning of a feeble criminal justice admin-
The sad reality is that CARICOM is yet to
even have a properly functioning office in Port-au-Prince
to collaborate on a regular basis with the Haitian au-

In the meantime, the Haitian nightmare of crimi-

Prime Minister Owen Arthur of Barbados as current
chairman of the Community, and the Community's
Secretary General Edwin Carrington,
The petition had both a general focus on gross
human rights violations; the oppression and poverty
of the Haitian masses, as well as a specific appeal
for the safe return of a respected social activist and
human rights advocate, Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine.
He disappeared on the evening of August 12 and
has not been seen or heard from since and is now
numbered among hundreds of other such victims with
families and friends fearing the worse.
President Preval did not show up, as expected,
for the Heath Summit. Nevertheless, the organizers
of the petition have been left to hope that their ap-
peal for help in securing the safe return of Lovinksy
and other kidnapped victims, has at least been made
known to the Haitian Head of State and other
CARICOM leaders.
More importantly, that the Preval administration
will be forthcoming to demonstrate awareness of its
moral and legal obligations by taking appropriate ac-
tions to curb the wave of kidnapping. Instead, that
is, of appearing too overwhelmed and incapable of
enforcing ANY plan to deal with. for instance, the
particular crime of kidnapping for which blame is
often expediently heaped on Haitian -criminal
deportees from the USA
It is not Preval's commitment to the rule of law
and respect for fundamental human rights that's be-
ing questioned. It is the utter failure of his adminis-
tration--while the United Nations continue to spend
many millions of dollars each year to maintain a

THE DETERIORATING human rights situation in
Haiti that includes an epidemic of criminal violence
and kidnapping, as well as growing incidents of
child slavery, are motivating increasing numbers
of non-government organizations and well known
personalities within CARICOM and the Caribbean
diaspora to appeal for more effective and caring
governance in Port-au-Prince.
A petition signed by a wide-cross section of
Caribbean nationals and their allies in Britain and
North America, among them academics, writers

than if you're poor. Actually there is; a ter-m for it -a c~hauvinistic-
For someone who0 berates the PPP/C as having an ulncaring al-
trulistic attitude (or elitist attitude) to the people. Emlile's stance on
the elites in our society would send even a rightw-ing Washington
political activist/lobbyist running for cover.
While multi-cultural Emile Mervin. who contends that the PPP/C
is and has been "bad" for Guyana. the majority of Guyanese. who do
not have a university education, would contend that it is opportunity
that they lack and not ability. Just because you went to a university
does not put you above the people (whether poor or not) who do not
have that opportunity. That would be like people using "big" words
to a crowd to show how important they are (you remember the one
about the man who had a son who went to live in England, then came
home and stuck his hand in the bucket full of crabs?,)
Emile, most Guyanese politicians do not see themselves as being
in "...an intellectual elite class." Mr. Corbin, Mr. Trotman or Presi-
dent Jagdeo, I would guess, are comfortable chatting with a farmer or
a miner (either of whom may have a degree) as they would be chat-
ting with a Professor. They do not go "Ah, you're a University Pro-
fessor. You're elite. You matter more. I want to chat with you."
I understand that some people living abroad their "tastes"
can become altered and askew. Perhaps when Mr. Mervin
comes home he will share with Guyanese his thoughts and

The Government has employed Neighbourhood Police
throughout the country to bridge the gap between the c~om-

neighbourhood police would operate in their commnunity aml
feed valuable information to thle police of' all criminal activi-

8F9 UkSt pessimistic
First let me say it is with great joy that I pen this letter know-
ing that our country has won the right of sovereignty with re-
spect to the maritime boundary that was in dispute with our
nei hour Suriname.
Nevertheless. some people mn the media are just pessimistic and
can never really experience that f~eelmng of satisfaction the rest of
the nation is experiencing at the moment.
Of course I am saying this with eyes and fingers pointed di-
rectly at Freddie Kissoon as culprit number one. Give it a rest
Freddie. You always find a way to discourage and take hope away
from-the people with your negativities and constant unpatriotic writ-
ings. I wonder if this is all part of your jealousy towards the ruling
party. Give credit where it is due.
Since when did you become a prophet. predicting thist the Of-
fice of the President will only use this moment to further eat away
at democracy? It seems like you are the least happy about the out-
come of the ruling and would have preferred otherwise.
Shame on you! Always complaining about the country's loss
of intellectuals, but if a close examination is done we would see
that maybe you are one of those influencing the exodus with your
negativities and unpatriotic articles.
The next time you mention in your article about how much
you struggled and continue to struggle take a moment to re-
flect on how much the country has achieved and will continue
to achieve regardless of your continued unpatriotic sentiments.


Guyana's economic

recovery substantially

depends on modernisation
As you are aware Guyana's economic recovery substantially
depends on the modernisation as well as the restructuring o~f
thle sugar industry. C'he diversification of sugar related areas
of production and whlat has become known as "best practices"
is taking place as we: communicate in Fiji. India, Ma~uritius.

Large scale sugcar producers such as Cuba and Bralzil are also
engaged in this change process that is historicaL, as it is one of po-
litical economy and market accessibility.

council. It has helped mn remoymng garbage while the mayor sat
in his high chair, apparently unmoved by the mountain of stink-

road improvement as several impassable streets are now usable
again. Aesthetic improvement has to be-credited to the govern-

The argument he puts up for government frustrating his efforts
at revenue collection is poor. A circus only comes h'ere occasion-
ally, a 'useless' piece of land would not give much (because it's
useless and people would not pay for useless things). Under your
leadership, the resources are inefficiently managed (remember the
outstanding audited accounts?).
Mr. Mayor, you need to admit that mismanagement, lack of
alacrity and dissent within the council has been factors affecting it,
You are guilty of airing your animosity against your town clerk pub-
licly, and on many occasions, and at the end of the day, you wear
the mantle of mayor; you will certainly have to take the flak for
the council's ineptitude.
A bit of advice here, why don't you do less travelling abroad
and pay more attention to what a mayor is expected to do.

He added: "I say this against the background that if one

He acknowledged that while their contribution is signifi-
cant, the fact still remains that youths need to be groomed to
take over or all the hard work will go in vain,
On this point, He called on youths to take up the mantle,
the challenge and be ready for the leadership role and insisted
that their seniors do not see them as threats for their position
but as individuals capable of making their work easier.
This sentiment was also voiced by NAACIE President,
Ke'nneth Joseph in his brief address on the occasion.
Acting President Samuel Hinds called on the youths
to set high standards and work to achieve them. He ad-
vised that this could be achieved chiefly if they put their
duty' above the rewards that might follow .

On Thursday September 18,
a Law of the Sea Arbitration
Tribunal unanimously de-
cided on a maritime boundary
between Guyana and
Suriname,- neighbours on
the South American Atlantic
coast and members of the
Caribbean Community and
Common Market
In the words of the Guyana
President Bharrat Jagdeo, "The
Award is very favourable to
Guyana". It is an award that
is legally binding on both coun-
It resolves a disagreement
that has been ongoing since June
3rd, 2000 when Surinamese
troops expelled a rig, owned by
the Canadian Oil company,
CGX, from waters whose own-
ership was disputed by the two
The Tribunal found that
Suriname's action "constituted a
threat of the use of force in
breach of the (Law of the Sea)
Convention, the UN Charter,
and general international law.
Attempts to reach a

neighbourly settlement failed
after a series of encounters
which were stalemated. Fi-
nally in February 2004.
Guyana sought international
arbitration. But, Suriname ar-
gued that the Tribunal had no
The Tribunal disagreed, and
its award is the result of pro-
ceedings in which both coun-
tries employed legal luminaries
and technical experts to vigor-
ously argue their case. In
Guyana's case, its team was led
by Sir Shidath Ramphal, former
Commonwealth Secretary-Gen-
eral and a former Attorney-Gen-
eral of Guyana.
It would have been easy for
the Guyana government to claim
a great victory and to show off
over the judgment. It didn't.
Indeed, President Jagdeo chose
not to speak of "winners or los-
ers" saying instead: "The great
achievement of the Award is to
open up before Guyana and
Suriname the prospect of prac-
tical harmionious cooperation in
their economic development and
in their relations as good

The Guyana government's
posture augured well for peace-
ful and cooperative relations in
the future between the two
neighboring states, and for the
further development of the Car-
ibbean integration process under
Undoubtedly. there is disap-
pointment in Suriname over the
award, but the government and
the nation would earn its own
place in history by showing its
respect for international law in
the peaceful settlement of dis-
The 163 page judgment ac-
companied by various maps is
an account of solid research and
argument by both sides. The
last thing that could be said by
anyone with the stamina to read
the judgment carefully is that
Suriname did not put up a
strong fight.
The Tribunal said that the
boundary it has established "for
the most part follows the

equidistance line between
Guyana and Suriname. How-
ever. in the territorial sea, the
boundary follows a NIOoE line
from the starting point to the
three nautical mile limit, and
Then a diagonal line, from the in-
tersection of the NI10oE line and
the three nautical mile limit, to
the intersection of the twelve
miutical mile limit and the
equidistance line"
Well what does that mean in
practical terms? For Guyaha,
it means that the companies it
has licensed to explore for oil
canl return to the areas in which
they were operating. Specifi-
cally, it allows the Canadian
company CGX to re-establish
its rig and continue drilling in an
area where it is confident that
there is a reservoir of oil
Guyana's economic fortunes

that could live in the memories

World Bank, an early find and

people. They will walke up
with the same difficulties they
now face which includes rising
inflation, unemployment and
crime. But they will also wake
up with a greater expectation of
a better future, and they will

look forward to enjoying the oil
wealth of their neighbours Ven-
ezuela\ and Trinidad and To-
Should oil be found and ex-
ploited in the commercial quan-
tities that have been rumour-ed
for years, the Guyanese people
of all races will expect to see
their standard of living and qual-
ity of life improve significantly.
People rightly expect to see
revenues from oil spent on im-
proving health standards, the
quality of education, tackling
poverty and creating jobs. And,
by and large, they will expect to

see oil wecalth distr-ibuted even-
handedly amongst all races.
9/18 was in the words of
President .Iagdeo "a good day
for Guyana". If oil wealth
comes in the future, good
governance could give better
days for Guyanese and for
other CARICOM countries
which could benefit from an
improved Guyana economy.
Responses to:

The European Commission
(EC) is proposing to build a
new alliance on climate
change between the Euro-
pean Union and the poor de-
veloping countries that are
most affected and that have
the least capacity to deal with
climate change. Through this

Global Climate Change Alli-
ance (GCCA), the EU and
these countries will work
jointly to integrate climate
change into poverty reduction
strategies. The EU will pro-
vide substantial resources to
address- climate change in
these countries. Measures

will include better prepared-
ness for natural disasters
which are expected to become
more frequent and intense
through global warming. The
GCCA renews the commit-
ment of the EU Action Plan
on Climate Change and De-
velopment to systematically
integrate climate change into
development cooperation.
Developing countries will be
the hardest hit by the effects of
climate change and therefore
need our help to mitigate climate
change and to adapt to the
changes already occurring. New
technology is only one way of
developing towards a sustain-
able society without hampering
development and quality of life.

learning paths to committing

behave suicidally, but, not fa-

cidal point. The; second path
is developing a readiness to
committing suicide, and then

:~6) And Professor Thomas
Joiner argues in his new book
that the desire for suicide in-
cludes two psychological states:
perception of being a burden on
others; and a feeling of not be-
longing; and Joiner notes that
completed suicides require both
states to act together to produce
the desire for suicide.
These theories, generally,
attempt to explain suicide as oc-
curring because of a lack of in-
tegration in people's social re-
lations, the presence of social
disorganization, where suicide is
a learned behavior, and where
two psylchological states have
to act together to make suicide
It was Durkheim's study of
suicide in 1897 that pointed out
the relationship between suicide
rate and social integration. He
argued that personal character-
istics of individuals could not
explain suicide rate; but only

through the amount of social co-
hesion or social integration in
the' society. It needs t~be said,
however, that the ngority~ of
people experiencing a lack of
social cohesion in theiT-relations,
do not commit suicide:

The Maris' study of sui-
cides in Chicago from 1966
through 1968, concluded that
there is no question that depres-
sion was important in the re-
search, but hopelessness seemed
to have more significance than
depression. Hawton said a
sense of hopelessness was criti-
cal among depressed adoles-
cents who attempted suicide.
Which of the two, depres-
sion or hopelessness, has a
greater importance in pro-
ducing suicidal thoughts?
This is important to know in
the development of preven-
tive intervention. A study by
Rudd supports hopelessness
as a major factor. However,
lack of social cohesion, social
disorganization, and social-
ization, and the interaction
of Joiner's two psychological
states, generally precede
both depression and hope-
lessness. So preventive in-
tervention needs first to ad-
dress the preceding factors.
If this stage is successful,
then there is no need to
tackle hopelessness and de-

People contemplating suicide are not mentally
derai~ged, or experiencing insanity. According to
Litman, sined suicides are intentional, mental
disorders may hinder suicide; therefore, suicide
is a planned act.
The Maris' study oflsuicides in Chicago from
1966 through 1968, concluded that there is nO
qqlestion that depression was important in the
research, but hopelessness seemed to have more
significance than depression. Hilwton said a
sense bf hopelessness was critical among de-
priesse~ adolescents who attempted suicide.

2) Suicide varies inversely
with the degree of status inte-
gration in the society (Gibbs
& Martin). That is, if the
many statuses or positions a
person holds in society are
closely linked (high status in-
tegration), then the probability
of suicide will be low. When
many positions a person
holds, are not closely con-
nected (low status integra-
tion), then the probability of
suicide will be high.
3). Suicide varies positively
with status frustration (Henry
&r Short, -1954). A person may
become so frustrated at the loss
of status relative to others in
the same system that the per-
son feels like committing sui-
cide. So the higher the status
frustration, the greater the prob-
ability of suicide.
4).Suicide varies positively
with migration rates (Stack,).
High migration rates place
people in the host society
where it may take some time
before they feel they? are part
of the new society. Also, in so-
cieties with high migration
rates, some people are left be-
hind, eagerly awaiting immigra-
tion papers that will enable

if Saddam had done that. The
Iraqi dictator could have shut off
5 million barrels at day and
brought "the industrial world to
its knees.
Actually, more than twice
that amount of oil leaves Saudi
Arabia, Iraq, Iran. Kuwait,
Bahrain, Qatar and the Uniied
Arab Emirates each day in tank-
ers and passes through the
Strait of Hormuz, so it really is
a crucial waterway. But Saddam
Hussein couldn't close it.
Saddlam Hussein was a bad
man. He probably held the
record in the modern Midldle
East for the number- of citizens
his armny, secret police andi tor-
turecrs hadl killed. But control the
Strait of Hormuz? He had about
als mulch chance of dloing that as
he did of controlling the English
Channel. and anybody with ac-
ccss to a map should have

known it.

of Hormuz. It has only fifty
kcm of coastline. anld m1ost of` its
naval and air assets were dc-
stroyed in the Gulf War of
1991. It had NO strategic abil-
ity to reach that far east. Even
if the US Navy had not been
permanently present in the Gulf
in overwhelming force, the no-
tion of an Iraqi military threat
to the Strait of Hormiuz was
sheer nonsense.
The only country in the rc-
gion with the mlilitary ability to
shut the Strait of Hormulz is Iran,
Since it depends on oil income
to support its domestic economy
and feed its population, it won't
do that unless it is attacked. It
may call the Unitedl States; the
"'Great Satan." but it has
pumped' oil as farst as it could and
sold it a~t the wor-ld mar~ket price
every year since th7e 19)79 r~evo-
lution. It can't afford to ca~e

That is true of all the major
oil exporters, whatever their
political convictions. They
HAVE to sell their oil. so it does

stop oil flowing to China. The

Australia's defence minister,
Brendan Nelson, is not the
sharpest tool in the box, so
people were not really sur-
prised in July when he
blurted out that the real mo-
tive for invading Iraql was oil:
"Obviously the Middle East
itself, not only Iraql but the
entire region, is an important
supplier of energy, oil in par-
ticular, to the rest of the
Australians and all of us
need to think what would hap-
pen if there was a premature
withdrawal from Iraq."
Silly old Brendan. off-mes-
sagee again. Didn't he know that
Australta invaded Iraq because
of its weapons of mass destruc-
tion? No. wait a minute, it was
because Saddaum Hussein might
help Islamist terrlor-ists.
Hang on, forget that. we rc-
ally went there to bringS the
blessings of democracy to the
Iraqi people. dead or alive.
Brecndan just mis-spoke hunlself
aIbout the oil.
Fast forward two months,


and a rather shar-per tool has
~just offered the same analysis.
Alan Greenspann chairman of the
US Federal Reserve\c banking
system for eighteen years and
the high priest of capitalism,
pults it quite brutally in his new
book. "The Age of turbulence."
"Whatever their publicised
angst over Saddam Hussein's
'weapons of mass decstruc-
tion'." Greenspan- wrote,
Amnerican and British authori-
ties were also concerned about
violence in the area that
harbours a resource indispens-
able for the functioning of the
world economy. I am saddened
that it is politically inconvenient
to acknowledge what everyone
knows: the Iraqc war is largely
about oil.
"What everyone knows"?
No. what ever-yone has~ been en-
couraged to believe. by the pr-o-
testors and the manipulator-s
alike. Andi poor old Alaln fe~ll for
it too.
In interviews following the
publication of his book last
week, Greenspan explained that

There's no point in invad-

The price is set by a very
efficient global market, and not
even all of Iraq's oil will give
you enough leverage to force the
pr-ice down. Besides. why
would an administration whose
closest friends are in the Amecri-
can oil industry want to force
the pr-ice of oil down? !
Greenspan doubtless be-
lieved what he said. but it
doesn't make sense. He just fe~ll
for- the cover story that "it's all
about oil." which serves to dis
tract Western electorates from
the more comiplcx and often
even less defensible m~otives of
their governments.

earliest and hardest.
The EU has a leadership role in promoting international ac-
tion to tackle climate change. The Spring Council 2007 put for-
ward concrete proposals for a post-2012 international climate
change agreement, and committed to significant cuts in the EU's
greenhouse gas emissions. The Global Climate Change Alliance
will be an important pillar of the EU's external action on climate
change, reaching out to the countries least responsible for, but
mo sstA ce probid udwu r lhe Global Climate Change Alli-
ance is proposed to focus on five areas: implementing concrete
adaptation measures; reducing emissions from deforestation; helping
poor countries take advantage from the global carbon market; help-
ing poor countries to be better prepared for natural disasters, and
integrating climate change into development cooperation and pov-
erty reduction strategies. As Climate change affects many sectors,
it needs to be integrated into poverty reduction efforts in order to
ensure sustainability. Systematic climate risk assessment and
mainstreaming of climate change into development strategies and
programmes ("climate proofing") are imperative in this regard.
The Commission already earmarked *50 million to the GCCA
over the period 2008-10. But substantially more resources are
needed to provide a response that adequately responds to the
needs. Therefore an appeal is made to the EU Member States to
dedicate part of their agreed commitments to increase Official
Development Assistance over the coming years to the cause of
coping with climate change in the most vulnerable countries,
The first occasion to discuss the Alliance with developing
country partners will be the European Development Days held
in Lisbon from 7th to 9th November and focusing on climate
change and development.
Over the past years the link between climate change and
the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events be-
came amply clear. Seven of the ten deadliest disasters of the
last 20 years have occurred between 2000 and 2006. Only since
July 2007, the European Commission has provided *24.5 mil-
lion to the victims of natural disasters in Colombia, Carib-
bean, Peru, Kenya, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, North Korea
and the Sudan. The Global Climate Change Alliance aims
to assist the most vulnerable countries in the prevention of
and their preparedness for natural disasters. (EC)

Newenkirk, who suffered a
relapse after being admitted to
hospital, was earlier last week
placed on life support systems,
and remained in coma until the
time of his death,
His relatives said he was in-
jured while clearing a construc-
tion site at Kumaka Mines.
The injured man was air-
dashed to the city for emergency

treatment, and arrived at the
GPHC suffering a burst to his
head that was bleeding profusely.
He also complained of cramps in
both hands, numbness in the feet
and pains in the chest.
The result of a magnetic reso-
nance imaging (MRI) scan done
at St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital
determined that there was a clot
in his spine which triggered an
extremely high temperature and
threw him into a coma.
Doctors continued a grim
battle to save his life, but his
condition steadily declined,
until he died on Friday at
around 14:00 h.

The Ministry of Health in
collaboration with the
Georgetown Public Hospital
Corporation (GPHC) is asking
anyone with retina detach-
ment or suspected retina de-
tachment to visit the GPHC
for immediate attention.
It was not until recently
surgical interventions to correct
this disorder were only acces-
sible to Guyanese if they tray-
elled abroad. Now such surger-
ies can be done in Guyana as
was highlighted in a press re-
lease from the Ministry of

Dr. Shi Chunhe, of the
hospital's ~eye clinic, worked on
the first patient last week.
There are two other patients
listed for this week. However,
Dr. Shi is inviting more patients
with the disorder to visit the
clinic, the release stated.
Retina Detachment is a
disorder in which the retina
peels away from its underly-
ing layer of support tissue. As
a result, it leads to vision loss
and blindness. It canl be
caused by trauma to the head

or eye. But it can also be
caused naturally when fluid
collects underneath the
retina. The signs and symp-
toms include light flashes,
"wavy" or "watery" vision,
shower of floaters that re-
semble spots, bugs or spider
webs, sudden decrease of vi-
sion and if a retina detach-
ment is not taken care of in
its early stage, progressive
loss of vision occurs until
blindness results.

Around 18:30 h, Jeffrey, a father of four, was checking his
animal trap when the poisonous snake sprang at him and bit
him on the left leg.
The bitten man, who is no stranger to the jungle, immedi
ately tore his shirt off and proceeded to tie the leg in a manner
that would prevent the poisoned blood from being pumped to
other parts of his body.
He struggled home but passed out there. Relatives rushed
him to the Port Kaituma Hospital from whence he was later
air-dashed to the city.
At the GPHC, he was taken to the theatre for surgery,
and is now recovering favourably, but has lost a lot of blood.

(From page 11)

not only complied with the ob-
ligations under the biological
contract you entered into when
you became pregnant, but you
have honoured your obligations
as mothers to ensure that your
babies enjoyed the fundamental
right to a positive beginning in
their lives,
But, as we observed breast
feeding week 2007, I am also
saddened because I believe we
are failing in our efforts to en-
sure that every child, wherever
it is possible, enjoy the right of
being breast fed. There are some
babies, who because, their moth-
ers are HIV positive cannot en-
joy this right. But what about
the thousands of babies who
have been denied the right of ex-
clusive breast feeding for the
first six moths? Out of the al-
most 15,000 babies born in
2006 in Guyana, almost 8,000
babies in 2006 were not breast-
fed. Just think about it. Almost
8,000 babies per year would
have a start in life that leaves
them vulnerable in the future for
various kinds of diseases, in-
cluding diabetes and cancer.
I believe that the Ministry
of Health's leadership in the
struggle to make breast feeding
a norm with every new mother,
except those with HIV, has not
been as effective as it ought to
be. In this coming year, I intend
to ensure greater accountability
for those staff members who
are responsible for this
As Minister, I cannot be
ungrateful. The fact is that pres-
ently about half of the mothers
breast feed their babies. This is
progress. This progress resulted
from the diligent and committed

work of health workers, espe-
cially the midwives and other
nurses in the maternal and child
health departments in our health
centres and hospitals. But we
seem unable to move beyond
about 50%r. We have made vir-
tually no progress in the last
three years to move above 50%o.
By the end of 2008, we should
be in a position of reaching
75%. But at the rate we pres-
ently are going, we are not go-
ing to meet that target.
This, would be unfortunate.
Thus, we maist do something
different if we are going to meet
the target. As I look out on the
horizon, I see the efforts of the
health sector staff on the
ground. I believe that the Min-
istry of Health's staff is failing
our babies by not being more
committed to the programme.
I am instructing the CMO,
the head of MCH (Maternal
Child Health) and the Focal Point
for Exclusive Breast Feeding for
the Child to revisit the
programme and come up with a
more effective programme to
promote breast feeding for our
new born babies. This in no way
means that I am blaming these
persons for the slow progress.
These are among my hardest
working staff members at the
Ministry of Health. But we
must examine how we are doing
things and I believe that the time
for re-examination is now.
Having accept my mea
culpa and accepting the blame,
I must also express my disap-
pointment with families who
continue to ignore the lessons of
science. This is a practice that
does not cost any money. Biol-
ogy ensures that everyone -

rich or poor has equal capac-
ity to deliver this public good.
The success of the programme
should not depend on a govern-
ment, it should not depend on
any charitable organization. It's
a god-given right and a God-
given capacity that has been be-
stowed on every woman, ev-
I must chastise those
women and their families who
have ignored the advice to
breast feed. It's a shame anytime
a mother, unless she has just
cause, does not exercise her right
and her duty to breast feed her
child. It's even more a shame
when family members stand idly
by and do not participate in en-
couraging mothers to commit to
a sacred duty.
The Government in this re-
spect must provide guidance and
must ensure everyone has the
knowledge. But at the end of the
day, it is the duty of every
mother, every father, every
family to make this happen. As
breast feeding week 2007 comes
to an end, I appeal to everyone,
let us make this a successful
programme and let us ensure
that breast feeding week 2008
has better news for us as a coun-
try when it comes to breast
feeding our babies.
As we continue to make
progress towards achieving
the MDGs, one of the strate-
gies towards ensuring success
must be the exclusive breast
feeding of our babies. Appeal
to everyone to ensure that we
work to have each newborn
child breast fed. It's the
child's right. Let us honor
this sacred obligation on our

worker is part of the team that
promotes the exclusive breast
feeding for six months
I want to congratulate the
nurses in particular, but the
health workers in general, for the
commitment and dedication they
have shown in vigorously pro-
moting this programme. This
past week, the staff of the
GPHC, Region 3 Health De-
partment, Region 6 Health De-
partment, and in other parts of
the country highlighted the need
for breast feeding. I want to ex-
press my great admiration and
gratitude to all the nurses and
the other health workers who
have been so diligent in promot-
ing our exclusive breast feeding
It's a joy for me to see the
energy with which my col-
leagues, especially the nurses,
promote breast feeding in our
I would like to specifically
congratulate all those mothers,

taken the advice and have
breast-fed their babies. You have

preparations for the holding
of house-to-house Registra-

are no financial, administrative,
legal or institutional impedi-
ments for the implementation of
the above arrangements and all
of the abovementioned Parties
agree to fully support the Gov-

mnents." (see Para.6 of Agree-
ment signed, on Thursday. June
14. 2007, by the Government.

ment has made the decision that,
contrary to the long established
practice for- the conduct of Na-

ticularly teachers. will not be re-
leased, during working hours. to
facilitate the 13:00h. Monday

The Governmecnt must be
aware that GECOM has in-
vested considerable sums of
public funds for the training of'
applicants. predominantly
teachers and other Government
employees. to man the Registra-
tion Teams to conduct the
House-to-House Registration.
Th before, this decision wans
bound to impact adversely on

In the cir~cumstaunces. thle Parties
call upon the Governmecnt to
honourl the commitiment which
it mnade to GEICOM aund the Par-

In addition, the Parties
call upon GECOM3 to-

stalled wind power than Denmark,
with fewer than 6 million people.
But Engel also stressed that
the European Union's push to
get 20 percent of its energy
from renewable sources by
2020, and growing support in
the United States for greener
power, meant China was not
guaranteed the top place.

Currently the world's num-
ber two consumer of oil and
top producer of coal, Beijing is
keen to boost the amount of en-
ergy it gets from renewable
sources to clean its skies and
improve energy security.
But it has chosen to subsi-
dize wind power through a bid-
ding system that analysts and
industry figures say pushes
prices too low to fuel the rapid
development China could enjoy-
The current system asks
Girms to submit bids stating how
much they would charge for
wmnd power from potential sites.
Instead many would like to see
a feed-in tariff system, which
guarantees wind farms a fixed
premium above regular prices.
lIt is an issue we are also
pushing whenever we have the
chance of discussing it with au-
thori'ties," Vestas' Chmna Man-
aging Director Lars Andersen
"We think one way to cre-
ate a very sustainable industry
is to have a feed-in tariff sys-
tem," he said, adding that some
provinces were already looking

at changing the system.
A lack of roads and aging or
inadequate grid networks also
hamper development in some
areas with good wind power
But the industry is still
booming. Most analysts think
Beijing's target of 30 gigawatts
(GW) of installed capacity by

2020 is too modest, as China is
already nearing its 2010 goal.
Chinese firms have been
piling into the sector, with
around 30 companies risking a
glut of turbines and the poten-
tial for price wars before an ex-
pected consolidation.
But Vestas says experience
gives it a competitive edge.

'"The most important issue
for our clients over a 20-year pe-
riod, which is the lifetime of the
turbine, is reliability," Engel said.
'"There are many firms in
China trying to get involved in
the business but our experience
from around the world is that it
is not as easy as it looks," he

The Jutland based firm has
plants around the world, includ-
ing in Germany, India, Spain,
Australia and China, and 99.9
percent of its revenue originates
outside Denmark, Engel said.
It is aiming for full-year
sales of about 43 billion euros
($635 billion), and an operat-
ing margn of 7 to 9 percent.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -
Scientists have mapped the
genome of a worm that
causes elephantiasis in what
they called on Thursday an
important step toward devel-
oping new drugs or vaccines
to fight the mosquito-borne
disfiguring disease.
Elephantiasis is marked by
hideous swelling of the arms,
legs, head, genitals or breasts. It
is caused by small, thread-like
parasitic worms that can hive for
years inside the human body
and thrive in the human lym-
phatic system.
Writing in the journal Sci-
ence, the researchers said they
figured out the genetic content
of Brugia malayi (pronounced
BROO-gee-ah ma-LAY-eye),
one of the worms most respon-
sible for causing elephantiasis,
also called lymphatic 'filariasis.
Experts said more than
150 million people worldwide
have been infected by this and

similar parasites, particularly
in parts of Africa, Asia and
Latin America. The World
Health Organization estimates
that more than 40 million
people are seriously incapaci-
tated and disfigured by el-
People generally get infected
when bitten by a mosquito that
previously has eaten the blood
from another infected person
containing the worm larvae.
The researchers said
knowledge of the genes in-
volved in various functions of
the worm might point to. ways
to undercut its disease-causing
properties, guiding the devel-
opment of new drugs or vac-
They also said that a fuller
understanding of the way the
worm manages to elude an in-
fected person's immune system
could help in the development
of new methods to prevent
people's bodies from rejecting

nodes, obstruct the drainage and
cause surrounding tissues to fill
with fluid and swell. The tissues
can become infected, turning
black and oozing puss. People
with the disease often have
swollen limbs of massive size
that leave them disabled.
"It's very painful," Ghedin
Diseases caused by these
kinds of parasitic worms are
treatable, but current treatments
were devised decades ago, Dr.
Anthony Fauci, director of the
National Institute of Allergy
and Infectious Diseases, said in
a statement.
"There is an urgent need for
new discoveries in this area be-
cause of the limitations of the
current drugs, including toxicities
and the development of resis-
tance," he said.
Fauci's institute is part of
the U.S. National Institutes
of Health, which backed the

transplanted organs.
The worms release chemi-
cals that lessen the response of
the immune system, the body's
natural defenses. The immune
systems of some patients who
get a transplanted organ some-
times attack it as if it were a for-
eign invader.

"We need better drugs, bet-
ter therapies. Right now the
therapies are not completely ef-
fective," said Elodie Ghedin, an
infectious diseases expert at the
University of Pittsburgh School
of Medicine in Pennsylvania
who led the study.
"When we have the whole
genome like this, we have a list
now of potential genes that
now can be studied in more de-
tail," Ghedin added in a tele-
phone interview.
The worms often place
themselves in front of vessels
that drain liquid from lymph

La Nina may

impact global

WASHINGTON (Reuters) The weather anomaly La Nina
could influence global weather patterns through the early
part of 2008, according to the National Weather Service.
The U.S. agency said La Nina conditions have developed
across the equatorial Pacific Ocean during the past few months,
though some forecasting models have predicted a more rapid
development than has occurred.
La Ninat, which means "little girl" in Spanish, is an unusual
cooling of Pacific Ocean surface temperatures and can, trigger
widespread changes in weather around the world, including a
higher-than-normal number of hurricanes in the Atlantic.
In its 90-day weather forecast, which runs from Oc-
tober to December, the agency predicted an increased
chance of above normal temperatures in most of the
United States.
The only exceptions are along the Canadian border from
Montana westward and in the Southeast along the South At-
lantic Coast.
"Historically both of these regions experience near or be-
low average temperatures associated with La Nina," the NWS
There is a greater chance of above normal temperatures in
the Southwest due largely to long-term trends and ongoing
drought conditions.
Most of the country will have an equal chance of pre-
cipitation, with the only exceptions being above-normal
chances in the Northwest and belokv-normal chances in the

SUNDAY CHRONICLE September 23., 2007 -


By Claudia Parsons
- Iraq urged regional and
world powers on Saturday to
back an expanded U.N. role
in Iraq but U.N. Secretary.
General Ban Ki-Moon said
there was more to be done on
security before he could in,
crease U.N. staff,
Ministers from Iraq, its
neighbors and world powers
met at U.N. headquarters, with
Washington pressing for imple-
mentation of a Security Coun-
cil resolution passed last month
on raising the role of the world
body in Iraq.
The meeting brought U.S.
Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice together with her Iranian
counterpart, Maniouchehr
Mottaki, at a time of tension
over Iran's nuclear ambitions
but they did not address each
other. Washington also accuses
Iran of backing militants in Iraq.
Ban told the meeting re-
gional cooperation was vital to
reinforce Iraqi efforts at recon-
ciliation and "avoid exacerbating
He said it was the duty and
responsibility of the United Na-
tions to help and he proposed
setting up a small support of.
fice in Baghdad and possibly
sending staff to the cities of
Basra and Arbil in the future,

But when he was asked at
a news conference whether se-
curity was sufficiently imT-
proved to actually commit more
U.N. staff. Ban said: "The se-
curity situation. politically, so-
cially ... (is) unstable at this
"I would really hope that
security will be ensured as soon
as possible," he said. "It's true
that ... security has been im-
proving, but I think much more
has to be done."
Many U.N. officials are
deeply concerned about work-
ing in Iraq, remembering a
bomb that destroyed its office
in Baghdad in August 2003 -
and killed 22 people, includ-
ing mission chief Sergio
Vieira de Mello.
The U.N. Staff Union
wants Ban not to deploy more
people in Iraq and withdraw
those there now. Around 50
staff are currently in Baghdad,
living and working in the forti-
fled international Green Zone.

At U.S. and British urging,
the Security Council last month
voted to assign the United Na-
tions an expanded political role
in Iraq, including promoting rec-
onciliation between rival fac-
tions and dialogue with neigh-
boring countries.

Maliki said his government
was making progress toward na-
tional reconciliation and played
down defections by Sunni Arab
political parties from his gov-
ernment. "When we talk of im-
provement, this doesn't mean
that we don't have some prob-
lems but these problems are
very small," he said.
"We are going to be able to
provide security to the U.N. in
a way that will allow it to per-
form its role in an effective
manner," Maliki told reporters
earlier after meeting Ban-
He pointed to an alliance
of Sunni Arab tribes to fight
al Qaeda in the western prov-
ince of Anbar as evidence of
success. "Of course there are
still pockets of tension, still
pockets of terrorist militias
who are working in the shad-
ows," he said.
Rice described the talks as
an "excellent meeting," saying
there was an understanding that
"it's the international
community's responsibility to
"The security situation in -
Iraq is difficult but improving
and certainly the security of
U.N. personnel will be a very
high priority for all of the forces
there," she told reporters.
Saturday's meeting included
members of the Security Coun-
cil, Iraq's neighbors, members of

the Group of Eight leading in-
dustrial nations and representa-
tives of regional and interna-
tional organizations.
U.S. President George W.
Bush boosted American troop
.levels this year to try to stabi-
lize Baghdad and create a cli-
mate for political reconciliation
between Iraq's Shi'ite and Sunni
populations. But the Iraqi gov-
ernment has failed to meet sev-
' eral benchmarks for political
Bush recently backed a rec-
ommendation by his com-
mander in Iraq to withdraw
20,000 troops by next July
from 169,000 now.
The meeting was a rare oc-
casion for Rice to sit in the same
room as officials from Iran, but
a U.S. official said there was no
direct contact between Rice and
Diplomats said Mottaki
had called on U.S. authorities
to release several Iranians
detained in Iraq who Tehran
says are diplomats but who
Washington says were help-
ing insurgents.

Cut out caviar to

save the sturgeon

Russia' s Ivanov

'By Guy Faulconbridge

MOSCOW (Reuters) The rich may have to take black caviar off the menu to let sturgeon
stocks recover, Russia's first Deputy Prime lblinister Sergei [vanov said on Friday.
Ivanov, widely regarded as a leadmg contender to succeed President Vladimir Putin in 2008,
said he could do witrhout col lar If sturgoon I~shing was banned.
"If we banned c-alches for a penod of` time then I would certarnly survive," Ivranov told an
investment conference in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi, RIA news agency reported.
Ivanos. 54, said black and red cas iar, and crab meat was not an essential part of an everyday
diet andi he could do withour hrs caviar --ratio~n" for ilte tot ieln yarus.
.'We would repair our national wealth In tdus lime after w\e so r3apciously annihilated it,".Ivanov
Most of the world's sturgeon span n in the riverj that flow imto the Caspian Sea. Their unfer-
tilized eggs callar are rold by A9zerbaijan. Iran. Kazakhstan. Turkmenistan and Russia.
Overfistung. poacinng, pollution and poor management have cur srurgeon stocks in the Caspian.
Experts say beluga is on the verge of extinction after fish numbers fell by 90 percent over the past

High prices for caviar hate made the jsurge~on a target for criminal groups who control poach-
ing gangs and illegal caviar sales in Russia and abroad. '
Beluga caviar, a symbol of ostentatious dining and luxury, costs about $1,4()0 a kg in Mloscow,
markets but sells for 3,700 pounds ($7,400) a kg in London.
Russian agriculture officials have pressed Putin to declare a state monopoly on the
export of black caviar from Russia and to restrict its sale inside Russia to licensed outlets.

OTTAWA (Reuters) A deal
by 191 nations to eliminate
ozone-depleting substances
10 years ahead of schedule is
a "'pivotal moment" in the
fight against global warming,
Canadian Environment Min-
ister John Baird said on Sat-
Delegates at a U.N. confer-
ence in Montreal struck the deal
late on Friday. The agreement
will phase out production and
use of
(HCFCs) for developed coun-
tries to 2020 from 2030 and to
2030 from 2040 for developing

The~ United Nations also
hailed the deal, saying it could
cut billions of tones in green-
house gas emissions.
Washington says the faster
phase-out of HCFCs will be
twice as effective as the Kyoto
protocol in fighting climate
change. The United States
walked away from the protocol
in 2001 and Canada says it can-
not meet its Kyoto targets.
"It (the deal) ... will stand
out as a pivotal moment in the
international fight against global
warming," Baird told a televised
news conference in Montreal.
Baird said the fact that In-
dia, the United States and China

- major countries not bound by
firm Kyoto targets had signed
the deal was a promising sign
ahead of talks designed to pro-
duce a climate change accord af-
ter 2012.
The U.N. Environment
Program (UNEP) conference in
Montreal marked the 20th an-
niversary of the Mo6ntreal pro-
tocol, which was designed to
cut the use and output of
chemicals found to harm the
ozone layer.
Damage to the layer pro-
tecting the Earth from ultravio-
let radiation has been linked to
an increased risk of cancers and
cataracts among humans.
HCFCs are used in air condi-

tioners and refrigerators.

"Governments had a golden
opportunity to deal with the
twin challenges of climate
change and protecting the ozone
layer and governments took it,"
Achim' Steiner, UNEP's execu-
tive~director, said in a statement.
"Th1e precise and final say-
ings in terms of greenhouse gas
emissions could amount to, sev-
eral billions of tones."
White House spokeswoman
Dana Perino said the agreement
"represents one of the most sig-
nificant new global actions to
confront climate change by re-
ducing the greenhouse gas pro-
file of the phised-out sub-

Under the terms of the
deal, all governments agreed
to freeze HCFC production
by 2013 compared to average
production levels in 2009 and
Developed nations agreed to
cut production and consump-
tion by 715 percent by 2010 and
by 90 percent by 2015 on the
way to a full phase-out by
Developing nations commit-
ted to a 10-percent cut in pro-
duction and consumption by
2015, a 35-percent cut by 2020,
a 67.5-percent reduction by
2025 and a phase-out by 2030.
UNEP said that delegates
had agreed to find enough

money to provide financial and
technical help to developing na-
tions, but gave no details. The
United States said before the
talks that finding enough aid to
satisfy China would be cmucial.
Baird told Reuters he had
been "stunned and really
pleased" by what he called
China's huge contribution dur-
-ing the talks.
UNEP said it has spent $2
billion U.S. since 1987 on help-
ing developing nations curb the
use and production of ozone-
damaging substances.
A study group will now
probe how much the acceler-
ated elimination is likely to
cost. It will report early next

LONDON (Reuters) A labo-
ratory has found the Blue-
tongue virus in a cow in east-
ern England, the agriculture
ministry said on Saturday,
the first case in Britain and
a fresh setback for the
country's farming industry.
Britain's livestock farmers
have already been hit by the dis-
covery of the more serious foot
and mouth disease at several
sites in the past two months.
"Laboratory tests have de-
tected the presence of Blue-
tongue in one cow on a premise
near Ipswich, Suffolk," the De-
partment for Environment,
Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)
said in a statement.

will be culled and epidemiologi-
cal investigations are being car-
ried out to assess the situation."

Bluetongue causes fever and
mouth ulcers and in some cases
turns an animal's tongue blue. It
is transmitted by insects such as
midges and can be highly dan-
gerous to sheep and cows, al-

Bluetongue is mostly found

A spokeswoman for Prime
Minister Gordon Brown said he
had been told of the case and
had spoken with Environment
Secretary Hilary Benn and chief
veterinarian Debby Reynolds.
"He's keeping informed of de-
velopments," she said.
Defra said Bluetongue and
the measures to be taken against
it were both very different from
foot and mouth disease cases.
National Farmers Union
president Peter Kendall
stressed the disease was not
regarded by the farming in-
d stry as seriously as foot

"It is a real concern and
farmers need to be vigilant ...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -
An orbiting spacecraft has
found evidence of what look
like seven caves on the slopes
of a Martian volcano, the
space agency NASA said on

The Mars Odyssey space-
craft has sent back images of
very dark, nearly circular fea-
tures that appear to be openings
to underground spaces.
"They are cooler than the sur-
rounding surface in the day and

warmer at night," said Glen
Cushing of the U.S. Geological
Survey's Astrogeology Team and
Northem Arizon~a University.
"Their thermal behavior is
not as steady as large caves on
Earth that often maintain a
fairly constant temperature, but
it is consistent with these being
deep holes in the ground."
The holes, which the re-
searchers have nicknamed
the "Seven Sisters," are at
some of the highest altitudes
on the planet, on a volcano
named Arsia Mons near
Mars' tallest mountain, the
researchers report in the
journal Geophysical Re-
search Letters.
"Whether these are just
deep vertical shafts or openings
into spacious caverns, they are
entries to the subsurface of
Mars," said USGS researcher
Tim Titus.
"Somewhere on Mars, caves

But not these caves.
"These are at such ex-
treme altitude, they are poor

I don't believe in tinking pressure and none of my team will

"Taking the pressure on board will not help you perform. It
will bring down your confidence."
Yuvraj Singh, who spurred India to victory with an aggressive

yesterday they were left to dwell on a rare defeat.
"W~e'll go away and talk about it, we'll realise this format is probably
going to have a big impact on world cricket," Gilchrist told a news confer-
ence. "We need to analyse and put some thought into it.
"There's no-one up there in our dressing room who doesn't care

Opener Nazir, batting with
a runner after injuring his leg,
then lashed three fours and five
sixes in his 41-ball innings of 59
to lead Pakistan to victory.
Nazir put on 60 for the
first wicket with Mohammad
Hafeez (32).
Pakistan were never behind
the asking rate and remained in
control throughout the run
chase. Captain Shoaib Malik (26
not out) finished the contest in
style by hammering off spinner
Jeetan Patel over mid-wicket for

It is important to note thait the "samQsupier''must be responsible for the transportation service at all stages of the service.
Consider the example below:

ifcompainy "A". is contrac'ted to ship sugar fiom Essequibo to G~eorgetown and then subsequently to China, company '.A" must be

the sole service provider for all stages of the shipment. In the event that company "A" sub-contlracts the shipment of the sugar

from Essequiibo to Georgetowrn to company "B"', (note, company '.B" is registered for VAT and his contract with company .A"

does not extend to the subsequent exportation of the sugar) the service is taxable at the standardI rate of sixteen per-cenlt. As a result.

company "A" will be required to pay VAT tot company "B".

Generally local shipping of goods is not considered "international transport services" and is therefore subject to VAT at the
standard rate ofsixuteen percent. However. Schedule 1, paragraphs 2 (i) andl (j) respectively zero-rate:

Berbice edge past Demerara by six runs

run victory over defending
champions Demerara, in the
opening match of the 2007 El

50 Overs cricket; tournament,
yesterday at the Blairmont
Community Celitre ground.
Needing eight, runs for vic-

Sar wan (34) and Steven
Jacobs (14) revived the situa-
tion somewhat in adding 36
for the fifth wicket before
they both fell victims to the
impressive left-arm spin of
Permaul (3-33).
Jacobs lofted an easy catch
to Gordon at long-off, exiting
with the score on 85 in the 27th
over while the classy Sarwan,
sweeping, was bowled behind
his back, making his departure
in the 31st over to leave
Demerara struggling on 99 for
six. .
Darwin Christian (17) came
out and made his intention quite

clear, smlashing the off-spin of

peat the stroke the very next

fore Griffith was caught and
bowled by Permaul.
Earlier, Berbice, winning the
toss and taking first strike in
sultry conditions, on a pitch
that offered some early bounce,
were given a promising start of
67 in 13 overs between open-
ers Chattergoon and Crandon.
Chattergoon and Crandon
made full use of some ordinary
bowling first up, especially from
Griffith who partnered fellow
paceman Reon King with the
Snew ball, as they played several
exquisite shots on either side of
the wicket in-bringing up their
first 50 in just 9.3 overs, but
once they were separated, the
Demerara bowlers took control.
Apart from Fudadin with a
painstaking 57 from 108 balls,
including two fours, none of the
other batsmen really got going.
King (1-34) initiated the
breakthrough with the fourth
delivery of his fifth over, when
the left-handed Chattergoon,
cutting loosely to one that
moved away from him, edged a
catch to wicketkeeper Darwin
Chattergoon made (28),
from 32 balls, hitting four fours,
three of which came in Griffith's
fifth over.
Crandon and Fudadin added
26 for the second wicket that
carried the score to 93 before
Crandon, trying to tickle one
from off-spinner Cush to fine-
leg only succeeded in crashing
the ball into his pad and~ onto
his stumps.
He departed for 44, an in-
nings that lasted 63 deliveries
and contained five fours and a
six, leaving Berbice on 93 for
two in the 20th over.
It soon became 100 for
three, three overs later, when
Deonarine (5) was caught at
backward point by Mlc~arrell,
driving at one that bounced sud-
denly from off-spinner
-Mohammed (1-27) and with
Gajanand Singh (5), cutting at
Cush (2-32), being caught be-
hind shortly after, the home
team in the 28th over had
slumped to 107 for four.
Andre Percival then teamed
up with Fudadin, who in the
meanwhile was having a horren-
dous task in getting the ball
away. This halted Demerara's

progress briefly in putting to-
gether7 31 fr thle fifth w~icket.
However. it wouldn't have
bothered the visitors much as
the pair took up ten overs in
the process.
Using his vast experience to
his advantage, Percival (16)
tried desperately to break the
shackles, hoisting left-arm spin
of McGarrell wide of mid-
wicket for four and then pull-
ing a rank long hop from
Mohamed in the very next over
through mid-wicket for another

But, with the pressure con-
tinuing to mount 'at the other
end, his stay' was short-liedsc as
he eventually lofted MlcGarrell
(1-20) for Steven Jacobs to c~take
a good catch. running around to
his left.
His departure at 138 for

F~udadin picking up the tempo

"LThe thing that kills me...is that our
relatives have houses in Guyana, but we're
stuck in this little apartment in New York."
(Neil Allicocki. of East New~ York, attends the Brookly~n
Academy of Science and the Environment. He was born on
May 23, 1990. He shared his story with New York Times Ire
porter Saki Knafo)
BS8 We live in East New York. When I walk; through the front
t~Se door, I have my living room. and the view is of the other apart-
ment building. There are three rooms. I have my own room.
My older sister and my younger sister, sometimes- they sleep
in the same room, depending on how my older sister is feeling.
,~~ f~I have five siblings altogether, but my older brothers and sis-
ters, they've married and stuff and moved on.
,- If there is a financial problem, my parents would never let
me know about it, because as a youngster I'm not supposed to
be worried about bills or whatever. I'm supposed to be enjoy-
ing myself. The thing that kills me, though, is that our relatives
have houses in Guyana, but we're stuck in this little apartment
in New York.
I nes\er feel unsafe in my community, because I basi-
4. call know everybody. It's not like the stereotype that
25 people have of the city or urban areas. There is a lot of
crime. but it's not like you just walk outside and someone
will steal your purse.
But near my school, I don't feel as safe as around here. J

: the Other time when I was coming from the Brooklyn Botanic
L- G radens I try not to dwell on that because I don't want it to
affeCt how~ I am with people. I have to trust people.
RIl school is very different from other schools because
it's a partnership with the Botanic Gardens. It's really a
blessing because you get to go out into the field and study
different types of plants and a lot of environmental stuff.
I always liked science. Right now, I'm doing a study at the
New York Aquarium, with jellyfish. I try to culture them. We're
just trying to get them to grow and see what type of different
variables will get them to strobilate.
Strobilation is like: All right, the male jellyfish re-
leases his sperm into the water and the female jellyfish,
her eggs catch them, right? So, when they fuse, it turns

This process of constant
publication sharpens the skills
of developing ameative writers,
while sainm~nsing their prodne-
tivity and boosting their self-
~onfidence by allowing their
Sprinted issues. Most of the
ti~me, when developing writers

ativelileratue. At this point, we
should suggest somenlasons be-
hind the continued absence of a
Guyanese liteary magazine for
creative writing published sev-
eral times a year. One reason
Perhaps has to do with the be-
lief among some young
Guyanese writers that simply
reciting thei poetry, or reading
their f iclion orally to an audi-
ence (apart from doing what
they want to do) already fulfills
the activities of a creative
writer, aml secondly that post-
ing tbhei works on a comoputer-
ized web-site, or CD tape, is an
uP-to-date version of printed
and bound pages in a literary
Despite whatever beliefs

some locarl creative writers
may have that a totally oral
rendition of creative works is .
more in keeping with: their
non-western cultural tradi-
tions, we have to be more re- .
alistic amI understand that in
all early cultures literary
creativity began orally, since
it was linked to religious in-
cantartion, theatre and rheto-
ric. In other words, the artist
knew only the skill of recita-
tion, perfected by repetition,
asF in theatre. The frust slow
shifting from the emphasis
on simple self-expression, or
personal rhetoric in poetry,
began with the: Greek poets
Phndar Sappho, and drama-
tists like Aeschylus,
Sophocles and Euripides,
then later the Roman poets,
Virgil, Horace, etc. Creative
writing allowed these artists
to admit the world outside
themselves into their work
much more than had oc-
curred before. The objective
world and humans became
more integrated, especially
through written poetry and
poetic-prose. This literary
emphasis was perfected even

further by the brilliant poets
of the Chinese Tang dynasty, ~
in which a vividly descriptive
use of language and tone
came to achieve a beautiful
and sensitive balance be-
tween humans and the world
around- them.
This- is; the result of oral
skills expanding towards a writ-
ten style. Creative writing is dis-
tinct from oral speech because
it offers more time and space
for pausing, contemplation, in-
decision, analysis, correction,
and description; just as listen-
ing is distinct from reading, be-
cause what is listened to cannot -
be totally scanned without
abrupt stops and repetition,
whereas reading also includes
both listening and hearing the si-
lent speech-act of textual lan-
guage. In one of his outstanding '
essays, 'THE RUSTLE OF
LANGUAGE', Roland Barthes,
the unique French critic, wrote:

- "Speech: is irreversible; that is
its fatality. What has been said
cannot be unsaid, except, by
adding to it. To correct here is
oddly enough to continue. In
speaking I can never erase, an-
nul; all I can do is say, 'I-am eras-
ing, annulling, correcting', in
short, speakr some more". And
as regards the popular inthfence
of verbal power, it is indeed a
power based on the live cha-
risma of the speaker. Not only
politicians, poets, and preachers
have this quality, but actors,
film stars, and certain ordinary
everyday people. Verbal power
is not however equal-to the ac-
curacy of writing. The Bible and
its various writers are supposed
to tell us about God's word, but
we READ this in the Biblie; we
only hear it through the power
of mans' written language. Sifi- ;
Iarly, no one alive today or nu-
merous centuries ago, ever heard
the Greek philosopher Socrat~es

give Plat ocrs respect for choos-
ing to write about Socrates; it is
1Plato who invsoaqe-
us, because his writin& style
gives us the voice of the phi-

I~t's a given, writers
write books.
But when a book is written
is about a writer, that's another
story. A much bigger story is
when a writer from Guyana is

singled out for such- an honour.
Not surprising though, Jan
Carew is a writer, educator,
thinker and activist who made
his mark wherever he worked
and lived Trinidad, London,

Spain, Ghana, Canada, Mexico,
USA, Czechoslovakia, and
'The Gentle Revolution-
ary: Essays in Honour of Jan
Carew' edited by Joy Gleason
Carew and Hazel Waters is
the book paying tribute to a
man who lived and worked in
many places, with the singn-

lar fixation to right wrongs of
discrimination ,
marginalisation and even
gender inequity, fighting the
'same cause' by re-writing
and righting history.
Whether supporting the
People's Progressive Party or
the People's National Con-
gress in Guyana, whether liv-
ing in Ghana or Canada,
Spain or Mexico or the USA,
he cherished his indepen-
dence, emphasising equity
and relative truth. And why
not, he is an educator, diplo-

mat, philosopher and advisor
to many nation states, engag-
ing mighty men and women
of the world like Cheddi
Jagan, Maurice Bishop,
Malcolm X, Kwame
Nkrumah, Maya Angelo, and
Claudia Jones among oth-
Jan Carew was educated
at Berbice High School under
exceptional tutors like J. A.
Rodway and Ben Yesu Das,
continuing his education at 1
universities in North
America, Czechoslovakia

and France. He was born on
September 24, 1920, in a
ward called Rome in the vil-
lage of Agricola on the East
Bank of Demerara, not far
from where Roy Heath grew
up. Carew grew up in New
Amsterdam, rubbing shoul-
ders with his relative Wilson
Harris, with Edgar
Mittelhozer, A. J. Seymour
and others. -New
Amsterdam, benefiting the
'cultural matrix' of the old
Dutch capital, was in the
1930s, a place of 'art, paint-~
ing, literature, music and po-
etry'. His Demerara days
iin the 1940s) were -influ-
enced by Cheddi Jagan,
Martin Carter, wilson Har-
tis; Sydney King and others,
days of resistance and litera-
Carew was born at a time
when the empire was at its
height and according to A
Sivanandan, Director ofthe In-
stitute of Race Relations in Lon-
din, when 'the pus of racism
was seeping out from the sores'
of imperialism; breeding'~atred
and silent demonstration, giving
birth to a liberator and philoso-
dh r that event ally took his
ida sw rever hewent. As an
'inveterate wanderer', Carew
wai a painter and later actor un-
deri the management of Sir
Laurence Olivier. He worked as
a broadcaster, writer and editor
for the BBC, while in the UK,
he also lectured onrace relations
Lontion University's Extra-mu-
ral Department. He taught at
many universities Princeton,
Rutgers, and Lincoln, and is
Emeritus Professor of African-
American Studies at North-
western University, where he
taught from 1973 to 1987.

I will try to make this brief
as I can. My husband and I
separated over a lot of issues,
the main one being I thought
he was cheating. Well, I
think he may have been, be-
cause we were not even apart
a month when I found out he
is seeing his mother's chore
worker. I was devastated. I
loved him and wanted this
marriage to work.
I called near divorce time to
tell him where to send the pa-
pers. We had nothing but angry
words to one another before
that call. He was sweet. I told
him I was so sorry our marriage
ended, but thought of him often
and still loved him. I just
wanted to cleanse old wounds.
One hour later he called back
asking to come to my home to
clear the air.
We both cried and talked
about where we went wrong in
the marriage. He asked me to
give him time. He said this
oher coma dsdno wh .t t
then he revealed her daughter
and her daughter's husband are
living with him. Just give him
time to clean up this mess.
When he told the other
woman I called, she came run-

M r.

ning back int; his life. He still
leads me on and tells me he
wants to try. I am getting
played the fool, but I am hav-
ing the worst time letting him
go. I try but I can't. He is the
love of my life.
He sees me wanting out,
then he spews out words to
hook me again. I feel like a fish
getting thrown in and tossed
back time and again. I know she
is not living with him, but she
sees him two or three times a
week. Then he gets cool and
distant toward me. But if she
stays away, he leads me down
this cruel path-
I have prayed, remained
faithful to him, and now I am
at my wits' end. How could
anyone do this to another for
a second time? Help me let
him go, please. I have always
been a strong woman, but this
time I find no strength to be
that woman,

Beatrice, how could he
do this to you for the second
time? The same way he
could do it to you for the first
time. This mess is a mess
made by him. It was his mess

our eyes, ears, heart and mind. A good published poem

gards the notion that posting one's work on a computer-
ized website is equal or better than creating and promot-
ing literary magazines so as to nurture exciting and in-
-teresting writers from their teens up, that is really a de-
featist approach to a literary career. The act of reading,
especially of creative literature, is linked to browsing,

which only the textual-book-format allows us to do ex-
tensively, comfortably, and conveniently, because the text
before us never disappears into mechanical scrolling.
The would-be Guyanese writer remains to be nurtured and
enjoyed by a cultivated local readership (and therefore a for-
eign one as well) via a quarterly literary magazine at least.
There is much unexplored literary opportunities beyond our
past literary heritage, which we need to develop progressively.
The Guyana Prize for Literature is a step in this direction.

he management
of oral health is
Tto a large extent
the management of
inflammation. Most
people, at some time in
their lives, experience
a toothache. For some
a toothache is the only
thing will get them into
their dentist's office. As
a dental patient, you
should know about the
major causes and cures
of a toothache.
There are two aspects to a
toothache: what you can do for
yourself, and what your dentist
can do for you. When
toothaches occur on vacations
and in the middle of the night,
it may be difficult to see your
dentist immediately. You never
know when a little self-help can
make the quality of your life
somewhat better.

The origin of your
toothache can be as simple as
food trapped between the teeth,
which then irritate the gingival
(gums). This situation can be
corrected in two ways. First,
rinse your mouth vigorously
with warm water to remove the
debris. Second, you can use
dental floss to remove any
trapped food or foreign matter
from between your teeth.
In the above instance, the
problem is with the gingival and
the supporting tissue, not the
tooth itself. Usually, with
gingival irritation, the pain is
low grade, and the tooth is sore
to biting forces. Gingival
problems can also result in hot.
and/or cold sensitivity, which
can be accompanied by
discomfort upon biting. These
latter symptoms usually do not
occur until the situation is rather
If you are experiencing
momentary sensitivity to hot
or cold foods, it usually is not

a signal that you have a
serious problem. The
sensitivity may be caused by
a loose filling or by minimal
gum recession that has
exposed small areas of the
root surface. The symptoms
can be eliminated by having
the tooth restored and by
using toothpastes for
sensitive teeth,
A dull ache and pressure in
the upper teeth and jaw can
indicate sinus problems. The
pain of asinus headache is often
felt in the face and teeth.
Usually over-the-counter sinus
and analgesic medications
(Tylenol, aspirin) take care of
the problem. If the pain is
severe and chronic you should
see your physician or dentist
for an evaluation. It should be
noted that bruxism (grinding
your teeth, usually at night) can
also cause this type of ache.
Your dentist should be consulted
if you have this problem.
That brings up the next

type of toothache: pain from
pulpal irritation that
manifests as a sharp pain
when biting down on food.
This delicate tissue of the
pulp can be irritated from a
deep cavity or a fracture. If-
you are experiencing a
lingering pain after eating
hot or cold foods, or constant
and severe pain and pressure
in the head and neck area, it
probably means the pulp has
been damaged by deep decay
or physical trauma. If you
have these symptoms you
should have your tooth
evaluated by a dentist to
determine if you need root
canal therapy. The pulp of a
tooth can both be diseased or
injured, and be degenerating
(or even dead) for some time
before symptoms occur. In
fact, the pulp can be dying
and not even the dentist,
who is trying to repair the
injured and aching tooth,
can be sure of the pulpal
status until pain occurs.
Abscesses do not show up on
X-ray films until the
infection in the tooth has
eroded a 'hole' in the bone
around the tooth apex (end
of root This usually takes

quite a long time to occur.
The pulp is almost
certainly 'irreversibly' injured
if you have pain, especially
when accompanied by
swelling. In other words, it
will not get better! You need
to see your dentist and/or be
referred to an endodontist
immediately so you can get
antibiotics to help get the
infection under control before
root canal therapy can be
performed. Pain caused by
pulpal injury is more intense
and often arises for no
apparent reason. If you have
a swelling, use cold
compresses on the outside of
the cheek. That brings up two
things you should not do if you
have visible swelling from an
infection in your tooth. First,
do not use heat on the outside
of the cheek. This makes the
problem worse. Second, do
not place an aspirin on the
gingival tissue of the aching
tooth. This causes a severe
aspirin burn on the gingival

as to jurisdiction that this

same was not an Interlocu-
tory Application within the
meaning of sub-section (g) of
Section 23 (1) of the -
West Indian Court of Ap-

According to the
judge, Counsel argued that

expression is' added..

Justice Phillips went on to
say, "This original application
for alimony pendente lite, is

practice and procedure of the
Court of appeal or any matters
relating thereto (including the
right of audience in the Court
of Appeal) or to the duties of
the officers thereof or to costs
of or fees upon proceedings
Justice Phillips added, "It is
clear that there is no power
given by this Act to make
Rules of the Court for regulat-
ing the proceedings in Divorce
in the Supreme Court of Brit-
ish Guiana."
"Consequently the words
"any other interlocutory Ordi-
nance (notwithstanding the pro-

At the conclusion of a di-

husband and wife in the matter
of Tiwari and Tiwari, Mrs.
Tiwari, the respondent, lodged
an appeal to the West Indian
Court of Appeal, asking for ali-
mony pendente lite (latin: main-
tenance' pending suit).
But, as the West Indian
Court of Appeal was not sitting
in the colony, the petition was

heard by a judge of the Supreme
Court of British Guiana, Mr.
Justice Roland Phillips.
Counsel for the husband
took a preliminary objection as
to jurisdiction and submitted
that a petition for alimony pen-
dente lite was not an interlocu-
tory application as envisaged by

Fatty liver is exactly as it

Of special interest is the display of a miniature Amerindian village by Macushi balata
artist George Tancredo, of Nappi Village, Region 9, donated to the National Collection by busi-
nessman Mr. Inderject Beharry in 2000. Called "A Dream of My Ancestors and the Past", it
recreates in fascinating detail the activities and pastimes of people, animals and landscape of
an Amerindian village of some decades ago.
Fifteen schoolchildren accompanied by two teachers from four Region 7 schools, special

Lokono (Arawak) artists are represented by works on canvas by George Simon, sculptures by
Oswald Hussein, watercolours by the late ceramist and painter Stephanie Correia, and the acrylic paint-
ings by the late Edward Fredericks, which record rural Amerindian life and technologies. Additionally
on show are works which explore Amerindian imagery and culture, such as those by the late Marjorie

potential as an export crop.
In Guyana, the main arenas
under cabbage cultivation are:
Black Bush Polder, Parika,
Laluni. Linden and has the po-
tential for large scale cultivation
in hinterland areas using drip ir-
rigation technology.
Throughout the various ar-

the most popular ones being the

grown in seed beds or seed
trays and then transplanted
at the four five leaf stage
(four weeks old). It is very
important at this stage to
carefully inspect the seed-
lings for signs of bud worm
Cabbage can be cultivated
on any soil type, but grows well
on light textured soils such as
sandy loam, clay loam and
those with high organic matter
content. Cabbage does not tol-
erate acidic conditions. It re-
q~uires a ph of 5.5.
The land should be prop-
erly tilled with excellent drain-

age systems.
If the pH is below 5.5. then

pending on the variety grown.
During the various stages of cultivation, the farmer should be vigilant to guard against pest and
diseases. To prevent major disease and pest infestation, it is advisable to employ an integrated pest
management strategy which means controlling pest and disease using reduced chemicals but rather bio-
logical control which is the use of natural insects to destroy the destructive ones e.g.
The use of natural predator lady bird beetles frequently feed on aphids. When aphid popu-
lation is low and lady bird beetles are present, there is no need for chemical control.
And Cultural Control methods which include:
o Rid the field of weeds and plant residues from previous crops
o The areas where vegetables are grown should receive full sunlight, kept clean of weeds and
all crop residues should be removed and burnt.
oProper land preparation serves to control weeds, diseases, and soil insects, and also helps in
the destruction of large soil clods, which act as hiding places for cricket and cutworms
The choice of pest and disease control is influenced by the level of infestation. A few plants within
an acre do not require the use of chemicals, but can be removed manual and destroyed by burning.
Remember using biological and control methods will ensure good field sanitation arid also fewer
chemicals, allowing for the production of environmentally sound agricultural practice while ensure good
wholesome foods.
Another important strategy one should always use is crop rotation which means simply growing
different crops on the farm by one after the other.
Never plants one crop continuously on the same best. Choose another crop type e~g.
See figure at right

Farmers should always remember to rotate the use of chemicals to prevent insect/ pest
resistance and to adhere to all instructions given on the labels.
In growing cabbage the farmer should be always be on the look out for cricket, aphid,
diamond back moth and white flies attacks. (We will continue this article next week)

Sunday Chronile~ Septe~mb'er 23,' 2007

GEMINI -- Take another look at your workload today, and reevaluate the expibc-
tations you have for yourself and for the people you work with. Are you being fiir,
are you being idealistic, or are you being unreasonable? It's one of the, three. Right
now, you need to adopt a new point of view about things, because your expectations
are just not realistic. The good news is that once you admit that things aren't goilig to
happen the way you want them to, you'll figure out the next best plan. j

CANCER -- An elevation in your emotions, can bring you lots of joy today, as
long as you know when and where to display them. Propriety and an objectivq~ide-
meanor will be called for most of the day, so save up any outbursts or giggle fits for
tonight. Stay loose and relaxed inside, though -- you need to learn to be flexible enough
to recognize a gigantic opportunity when it appears. The work at hand demands B lot
of you, but it's nothing you can't handle with grace and a dollop of your individuality.

LEO -- Today, try to consider only the knowns in. your life -- the facts that you
can rely on. Right now, the unknowns have no power and are irrelevant Sure, exgilor-
ing the 'what ifs' of your life can be exciting, entertaining and distracting, but today
they will be too confusing to be anything positive. So stay close to h~ome, stick with
the people who know you inside and out. The right people and the right place will
give you what you need -- just like they always do.

VIRGO -- No one loves criticism, even the constructive kind. But from to timne,
everyone needs to hear it -- including you. You'll get a huge benefit out of the fPed-
back other people give you today, so ask around about your latest endeavor. Find out
what they really think of your ideas and methods. Could they be improved? Swallow
your pride and don't expect to hear singing praises. A healthy ego is important, but so
is humility. Today, grab a slice of humble pie and dig right in!

LIBRA -- Those people who haven't been noticing you had better watch out!' Be-
cause you're about to make quite, a splash on the scene, and they'll wonder why they
never acknowledged what a rock star you are before. This is a bright time of fame for
you, when you'll be turning heads and eliciting whispers from the crowd. If you have
tb give a presentation, audition for a play or teamor are about to go out on a first
date, you have nothing to worry about. You'll shine!

SCORPIO -- A hllgh-spirited friend is full of bright new ideas, and they love shitr-
ing them with you today whenever you have the time. The trouble ise you are going
to immediately see quite a few holes in their logic -- should you rain on their parade,
or let-them go unwittingly into what you think is sinre to be a failure-in-waiting? The
stars ask you to remember~that each person is on their own path in life, free to mace
their own mistakes (aind learn from them).

SAGIITTARIUS -i Sometimes (like today), y~oist communication style says mtdre
to people than the aictuail words you are uttering. Be mindful of .the~attitude you'e
giving off and be veryg careful with how you speak -- you could run a smadl 'risk; of
making a bad first impression if you are careless about your body l!anguage. If jtiti'
can put in the extra effort to stand tall, smile, and listen attentively, you rill sisil~
Through even the most challenging conversatioqsys ith ease.

SCAPRfCORN -- You'r moving into a quieter phase of life today; g nd yo~u will
be spending ~time on thk sidelines for a while. This ume out of the action will be a
welcome relief, however. You've got some visions'for your future that require making
some big changes, so ust this quiet time to prepare. There are new directions youar
take things -- and all th t's missing is a real pl~ani.So think about one today. Allt~lit
introspection will fade soon, so delve as deeply':as you can now.

AQZUARIUS -- Just Ipecause your brilliance hasn't had a chance to be' on display)
lately doesn't mean that 3ou aren't still as amazing as ever. Sometimes, the only posi
tive reinforcement you're. going to get is the kind you give yourself, and this might be
one of those times. It's not that other people will be tearing you down, it's just tha
no one will be building you up. But it's time for you to learn how to be your owl
best friend, your own cheerleader. So keep shining -- even if no one else notices.

PISCES -- Be open to changing your mind once in a while -- holding on to th.
same opinion forever is not something that a mature, intelligent person does. An in
telligent person is not afraid to revisit issues just to make sure they're up to speed or
Small the facts. So seek out some intellectual stimulation today and take another look a
some controversial ideas. Are you sure you still feel the same way about them? You'I
discover you still feel strongly about most of them, anyway.

In 1995, recognition of the importance of the global issue and the contribution of science to the
ozone layer protection efforts came in the form. of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, which was awarded

ARIES -- Your energy is sky high today, and your focus is razor sharp. So if you
have been waiting for a time to organize your life: this is it. Make time today to clean
out a closet, fix up the garage, or just do that load of dirty dishes in the sink, today is
the day for it. You have a great ability to create order out the chaos right now, so use
it! You will have fun with whatever method you choose. whether it's color coded
Folders, alphabetical lists, or complicated computer programs.

TAURUS -- Before you let yourself get hot under the collar when something otht-
rageous happens today, do yourself a favor and stop for a moment to review the
situation. Things that affect you might not be meant to affect you, so don not take
anything personally. Be objective, analytical and cautions -- listen to your consglrva-
'',"F tive side today and don't let yourself get caught: up in the heated emotions of the
moment. Most importantly, do not do anything rash today that you might regret

Hello students,
Let's renew our short talk about study habits. For
study to become a habit, much time must be set aside
for its indulgence. Let's talk today about another study
tool. Let's look at critical reading. Critical reading
requires that the reader asks himself/herself a number
of questions such as:

Ar hs comnnecin logical?
Do I agree with the values underlying this
writer s viewpoint?
Questions like these are necessary because even
well-researched and carefully considered writing can
contain mistakes or reflect an author's bias.
Learn to identify facts and opinions.

Do enjoy today's issue. Love you.

The Extract
The alarm rings and Bill Porter stirs. It's 5:45 a~m.
The weatherman is predicting rain. With adisability
that can cause him considerable pain, he could linger
under the covers. People would understand. He
knows that.
A surgeon's scar cuts a swath across his back
The medicines littering his night stand offer help, but
no cure. The fingers on his right hand are so twisted
that he can't tie his shoes. Some days, days like this
one, he feels like surrendering. But his dead mother s
challenge reverberates in his soul. So, too, do the
voices of those who believe him stupid or retarded,
incapable of being more than a ward of the state. All
his life, he's struggled to prove them wrong. He will
not quit.
And so, Bill Porter rises and begins again his
fight for independence and dignity.
With trembling hands, the 64-year-old door-to-
door salesman dresses carefully: dark slacks and
matching blazer, blue shirt, tan raincoat and pinched-
front fedora. Image, he believes, is everything.
On the 7:45 bus, he finds a seat in the middle
of a pack of teenagers. He senses the stares....
Porter looks at the floor. His face reveals noth-
ing. In his heart, though, he knows he should have
been like these kids. He's not angry. His mother had
explained how the delivery had been difficult, how the
doctor had used an instrument that crushed a section
of his brain and caused cerebral palsy, which affects
his speech, hands and walk.
But he wasn't slow.
His mind was trapped in a body that did not
work. Speaking was laborious, as if words had to be
pulled from a tar pit. People were impatient and didn't
listen. He felt different was different. People like
him were considered retarded then. What could his
future be?
Porter asked the Vocational Rehabilitation Di-
vision for help. They sent him to several social-ser-
vice agencies, but they called him "unemployable"
His mother was certain, though, that he could
rise above his limitations. Porter wanted to be a
salesman.... When Porter saw a help-wanted ad for
Watkins, a company that sold household products
door-to-door, his mother set up a meeting. The rep-
resentative said no, but Porter wouldn't listen. He
just wanted a chance. The man relented and offered
Porter a section of the city that no other salesman
wanted. ....
.. ..If customers turned him down, Porter kept com-

ing back. And he sold..... He was awarded with a
better territory. For several years, he was Watkins'
top retail salesman in a four-state area. Today, he is
the only one of the company's 75,000 salespeople who
sells door-to-door.

Ask yourselfthe following questions and make sure

tlP Wte o scri ton fBsil Pore in your own
words for an interested friend. Do you know of per-
sqns in situations like his today? Tell about them also.
S2. There is the inclusion of features sunrounding his
work life such as Porter's: disability, felling like surren-
dering, mother's challenge, salesmanship, confidence
to guarantee products, way to keep coming back, rise
to top retail salesman. Exactly what is each feature
3. Have you ever set such challenges to your
characters when you write? Read up about physi-
cal and other difficulties man faces. There are many
success stories that can be told. Turn to your Com-
monplace Book and. substantiate its contents with
items of significance for you personally. (Note: A
Commonplace Book is one in which writers keep
collections of significant items to be used as sources
for other writings.) -
4. How much is the writer's language suited to the
characters of the story? Tell each other in your study
group how it is f itted.
6. What makes you want (or not want) to continue
reading more of the story?
7. Read the passage as many times as possible and
write a short story based on it. Pay attention to your
finer details of setting.

Personal Note: What have you mastered well in
your writing so far? Check and come up with a fair
answer, and then resolve to add more skills to improve

Right now you can try to tailor your writing style
to suit your audience. For example: When you write
for a younger audience, use simple sentences and easy-
to-understand vocabulary.

Abruptly he fell to searching for the words as she
wanted to hear. She has graceful neck, auburn
hair, sober eyes. She's clean articulate, though shy -
He looked sideways at her. "I think you'll like her."
"Whether I like her or not is unimportant."
"She will produce healthy children," he added, "-
something that your three offspring have thus far been
unable to do."
She continued to frown at him. Then apparently
as weary of the encounter as he was,: she concluded.

"Why not?" he replied hurriedly, "'Irather thought
that was the point of all this."
She nodded, a solemn look upon her face, as sad
and preoccupied as the one she'd arrived with. He
had hoped to walk back through the castle gates with
her smiling, on his arm, a pretty family portrait which
he was certain would please Sophia.
But apparently it was not to be. As she started to
rise, he again gave her generous support. He was
sorry that she had cooled toward him. And he was
doubly sorry that he had been unable to fill her roman-

Kickass Queen Prlyanka Chopra was rendered hors de
combat on the sets of Drona at Film City in! Mumbai re-
cently while attempting to do somersaults for, a dangerous
action scene.
Priyanka, who went through a martial ar~ts course while
making Don, is now taking tips on an ancient Silth fighting art
called 'Gagta'.
Her role in Goldie Behl's Drona has Priyanka playing
Abhishek Bachchail's bodyguard. And a certain amount of stunts
are required to be performed by the former beauty queen in
this movie.
Priyanka, of course, is no newcomer to such scenes.
And she threw herself into the role with gusto. Until the
injury. "I was having such fun until then," she winced. "In
fact, when I arrive on the sets, I announce, 'I'm armed and
dangerous. So please stay away."
She described the accident, "I was doing a somersault when
I felt something give way inside my rib cage. I've apparently
suffered a tear in my abs."
Priyanka's been advised complete rest. "If it doesn't
rest it won't heal. But here I am, shooting a vigorous dance
song for Rajiv Surti. It's so painful. I've no choice but to
continue," she groaned. Soon after, Abbishek and she are
leaving for Namibia to shoot some more stunts and songs.
"I don't know how I'll manage," said a worried Priyanka.

I am. a NIS Clerk employed in a major organisation. Our
employees are paid full salary when they are ill, as such we do
not submit NIS medical. is this the right thing to do? ao

No. All medical should be submitted to NIS. However, for your'l
record, you can duplicate and keep a copy. Submission of
medical to NIS is not only important for receiving payment, but
also for establishing one's medical history. This is very important
in relation to continuous ailments (chronic illness) eg. Diabetes. -.
High Blood Pressure and Asthma. Having established a rnedical
condition that is likely to be continuous, remember one can'
always receive Medical Care coverage even if one is out of
employment or over 60 years of age. Please, do not complicate ~1
the contributors right to make claims to NIIS by withholding their
med icals for whatever reason.

'Ireng/Sawauriwan Neightbourhood
Demi~ocratic Council'

The two years of implement~atl'on period of the Guyana Micro-
Projects Pro~gramme will dompe to an end inFebruary 2008. To:
date 82 micro-projects havel been awarded a grant out of '
which mnore than 50% are! com pleted. .

Primary Schools' kitchens :

To datb, seven (7) school kitchens fjyndeo
by the Giuyana Micro-Projects
Programme have been completed ip
Re~gidn 9. Currently, four (4) additional
kitchens are under completion.

Th~e construction of school kitchens in
those villages aims at building on the
Education for All Fast Tirack Initiative

Under this programme Commnunities
have to ensure that a kitchen satisfy-ing
theM/inistry of Health's standards is
constructed. The GMPP supports the cost .
ofoonstr-uction of the com-p~ound up to?5

The Communities as a part of their
251jercent contribution in-kind provide

materials sulch as the sand, gravel,'
transportation of materials, lumber and
skilled labour

Once completed and certified each pupil
should benefit from a daily hot meal
funded under the EFA/FTTI.

As a spin off from1 the school kitchen, the
Communities will benefit greatly since
the Commashities' farmers will be
encouraged and motivated to produce
more in order.to supply the kitchen on a
daily basis.

A ready market foir producers will
ther-efore be available and by th~en
generate new incomes.

Local agricultural productions are
cassava, erddoes, plantain, bananas, corn;
fish and kitchens vegetables .

The general objective of the European
Union/ Govern-ment of Gu~yana limded
Guyana Micro Projects Programmne
[G.MPP] is to reduce poverty and social
inequality in urban areas. coastal villages
and the rural interior by contributing to
the financing of micro-projects with an
economic and social impact .on
vulnerable groLps and communities.

The projects selected for funding under
the programme are identified by the
beneticiar-y through a participator-y
process and are undertaken at their
initiative with their active participation.

Communities' participation is a major

element in the design of the GJMPP.

Their commitment and ownership of
micro-projects is partially ensured
through the requirement of a financial
contribution of' a minimum of 25 percent
of the total projects' cost either in cash or
in kind against 75percent from the
Government of Guyana/European

In order to achieve on a long-term basis
the objectives of the pr~ogramme, the
GrMPP actively involves public bodies.
local democratic organs and other donors'
initiatives for- instance to build on existing
