THE Laparkan Group of
Companies, which pioneered
local air cargo service in 1992
with a Boeing 707 all cargo
aircraft, is gearing for a ma-
jor supporting role in agri-
cultmme development here, ac-
cording to Mr. Glen Khan,
Chairman and CEO.
A major plank in the plan
to boost exports of produce by
air, he said, is stationing a Rus-
sian AN-26 10,000-pound air-
craft at the Piarco International
Airport in Trinidad early next
Khan said there has long
been talk about Guyana being
the breadbasket of the Carib-
bean but the challenge was "try-
ing to find the right economic
formula that makes sense for it
to happen".
And part of Laparkan's
formula is positioning the Rus-
sian aircraft in Piarco to back up
its existing Boeing 727 all-cargo
"We are putting a lot of in-
vestments to make a process
happen, including at the Cheddi
Jagan International Airport", he
said in an interview here last
And with U.S. Ambassa-
dor here, Mr. David
Robinson, playing a key role,
Khan said Laparkan is look-
ing to get Guyana's non-tra-
ditional agricultural produce
into the major Guyanese
diaspora market in New
York, through Miami Inter-

national Airport.
He said that under continu-
ing support for Guyana's agri-
culture development programme
from the U.S. Agency for Inter-
national Development
(USAID), Robinson and Agri-
culture Minister Mr. Robert
Persaud are due in Florida this
week to help the Laparkan

programme and said the chal-
lenge for Guyana is to fiml no-
traditional pmdducts for fanmess
to grow that make cnlomic
'"These must have good
value added; you rmy needl to
fmnd a few large imbsdial~ pro-
ducers that can balsically sup-
port the produce of ;our ~miii-
enous farmers."
Farmers also meed fman-
cial support,Klhammate~d~al
said Persand, in Nelw York
about six weeks age gave a
"phenomenal asiiculatiem of
Guyana's arimtal
programme." Heicis due to
make a similar pitch to time

Khan said the Guyne;a m
Government, USAID ;a~ndAm-
bassador Robinsumo are "ca goijrpin-
ing" to support Guan~~~a s agni
exports to the U.S.
-'But nwre impranlrm~mnsly it's

tural developments f ibbean and how; to Mjive rsho~n-

USAID, he said, is spend-
ing about UBS$250,000 to put in
an articulated refrigeration pro-
cess at the Cheddi Jagan Inter-
national Airport to support the
HIV progamme and back agri-
Laparkan is also involved
and is looking to invest between
US$300.000 to US$500,000 to
put in a better articulated struc-
aame as the airport to support the
~ag~riulture programme, Khan
"#VeC believe all the dy-
mamics ame moving at a fast
pace time economic process
is really accelerating when

you look at all the pillars be-
ing put in place; so you have
to make sure that your infra-
structure and your logistics
are in place to support the
rapid pace of developments
and we at Laparkan take full
cognisance that we have to
play a continuing role in how
we support the government's
drive in their agriculture
quest and to basically get
products to markets that
has become very important"
Khan said seafood is an-
other big area of opportunity. as
is aquaculture (tilapia etc.).
"Although we are here to
mnake our business financially
viabic, at the end of the day we
also have to look at nationalis-

tic issues and what is important
for Guyana and the Guyanese
"...We' pioneerefd a visit to
Brazil and saw that as a tremen-
dous opportunity for
Guyana...we want to bring in
hares for the interior; we want
to offer low cost transportation
to the interior, the coastal area
and to the region; we are not
just looking at air cargo; we are
trying to see how best we can
play a role in pioneering some
of the significant developments
in Guyana."
He said Laparkan will
also be launching a massive
money transfer campaign,
adding with a smile, "We plan
to take on the giants".

BIG PLAN: Laparkan

lobby for use of the Miami In-
tcrnational Airport.
Kham explained that certain
agricultural products are not al-
lowed in Florida but can be sent
to New York, and Laparkan has
to mount a "strong" lobby for
a quarantine facility at Miami
International Airporc.
He praised Robinson for
his support f'or the Guyana

Whatever real or imagined differences existed
among rank and file in the Trinidad and Tobago Police
Force, the general reaction was of firm opposition to the
disclosure fhat the Patrick Manning administration was
so Seriously contemplating the appointment of a non-
national as top cop, that advertisements had been
placed in overseas media with the impending departure
of Commissioner Trevor Paul..
The campaign for the coming November 5 election
has, for now, pushed the issue to the backburner.
Subsequently there were angry responses from both
the Jamaica Police Officers Association and Jamaica
Police Federation to a decision by the new administra-
tion of Prime Minister Bruce Gol ing to allow advertis-
mng dor the appointment of a new Police
Commissioner. This provides the opportunity for a suc-
cessfurl 'outside' candidate, foreign or local, to head the
Jan~iica Constabulary Force (JCF).
'The Jamaica Chamber of Commerce (JCC) lost
little time in backing the move by the Police Services

sas approved for CTreene should not be used as a
weapon to further delay his appointment after serving in
that post for almost 15 months. It can hardly be official
policy to permit an American influence on who is
appointed as Commissioner of the Guyana Police
Force .
In relation to the position of Opposition Leader
Corbin, if he is indeed troubled, as he said, by the long
delay in the confirmation process, he should at least in-
dicate where he stands on this crucial a pointment.
After all, there were no doubts about where he and
his party stood on Felix's a pointment. The acting ap-
pointment of Chief Justice Carl Singh as Chancel or of
the Judiciary is also long overdue.

PEOPLE wonder why the People's National Congress Reform
(PNCR) (now somewhat reduced in size) is so eager and anx-
ious to become part of the executive arm of the Government
through power-sharing, if they have a problem with what the
call or allege is "the true nature of the Jagdeo regime" as they
expressed it mn their letter in Kaieteur News of October 23,
2007 captioned "Mr. Da Silva seems bent on concealing the
true nature of the Jagdeo regime."
I don't know how the PNCR can allocate to one such a role,
when firstly, it seems to me that there is nothing for the Ja deo
PPP/C administration to conceal; and secondly, the PNCR and oth-
ers have the full freedom of the media to criticize any aspect of the
administration. What would I have the ability to conceal if this was
my role as they saw it.
They also state that "the PPP/C had the glorious opportunity
to continue the reform initiated by the PNC and Mr. Ho te." Ony
cannot be helped but be amused when the fact was that the PNC
and Hoyte were confronted with the inevitable results of their dic-
tatorial, authoritarian and undemocratic rule, and had no alternative
but to conform to the demands of the international financial institu-
t ons and the pressures of U.S. President Mr. Jimmy Carter and the
Carter~ Cetr
It was painful to me ~and others to see Mr. Hoyte trying to de-
fend the status quo and resisting the popular demand that ballots be
counted at the place of poll, which he termed "a logistical night-
The letter also says that in 1992, the PNC "had placed on the
agenda the further privatization of state-owned institutions."

Based on import statistics. an ave~lurag of 140.000 used tyres
arre imported annually. which reprecsents about 80%~ of tyrle im~-
polrts. Further. a simple survey\ will show that 99%; of. the' mlini-
buses & hire cars are using lsedi tyres.
What is a used tyre? A used tyre is a tyr~e that has worn to its
safety bar (4/32). a tyre that is damaged or inherently defective or
a user decides to change it because he/she would hav~e driven enough
on it.
It is ironic that Bureau of Standar-ds is judging these tyres to
be safet for road use.
These same discarded tyres from North America are imported
to be sold locally.
Really and truly, we are just doing those countries a favour by
importing their dunk as an environmental charge is applied to de~al-
ers in these tyres overseas.
Why are we allowing our country' to be a dumping ground for
used tyres? Have we considered the costs (loss of lives. drivers
and passengers' safety. envir~onmelntal costs. vehicle maintenance
costs) to the country?
How could the Bureau of Standards attest to the `road worthi-
ness' of these tyres?
Based on the diagram below. the risk of accidents increase
sharply as the tyre wears beyond 4/321.The average used tyre comes
with a tread depth of about 6/32. already worn to about 80% of
its tread life and you really can't tell those that are structurally
defective, even though it may be looking good on the exterior.
As seen in the diagram below as tyres wear towards the end
of its life, there is reduced steering control. reduced braking capa-
bility, tendency to hydroplane and generally reduced road traction
and therefore in this light has used tyres become the silent killer in
the spiralling increase in the road carnage.
Therefore action is welcomed by the minister to ban used
tyres and reduce the tariff on new passenger tyres sizes to
5% and make it a vat exempted item, so it can be affordable
to all.

This is eye-wash as privatization of such institutions was one
of the demands by international financial institutions under the Eco-
nomic Recovery Programme (ERP) or "empty rice pots" as it was
deemed by many.
No other Commonwealth Caribbean state had been faced with
the necessity for such a programme as far as I recollect.
At a very late stage, Hoyte and the PNC wanted to privatize
the Sugar Industry but this was stoutly resisted as it was seen as
a politically-motivated and vindictive action.
One of the entities privatized was the Guyana Telecommuni-
cations Corporation which was sold for US$16.5M reportedly to
meet an [FI commitment which they missed by one day, but was
not penalized for. It is still referred to as a sweetheart deal--the
price was regarded as cheap and a rate of return of 15% was guar-
Subsequently, there was more controversy in the media when
it was reported that Mr. Hoyte received a fee of US$20,000 to
give a talk on telecommunications in a country in Africa.
As regards access to state media, I believe an agreement was
reached that such access would be based on the parliamentary -e
presentation of political parties.
There are still areas of disagreement, I believe between the two
main political parties which have delayed the introduction of broad-
cast legislation, preventing the allocation of radio licenses. ,
I do not believe that there is any policy of harassment of pri-
vate media, but they and state media are monitored as to their ad-
herence to a code of broadcast standards to which they agreed and
this is done through the Advisory Committee on Broadcasting
We no longer have the doctrine of paramountcy of.the
party, which the PNC had promulgated, where all state agen-
cies had to pledge allegiance to the party. The private sector
also did so.

It was heartening to read in the Guyana Chronicle (October
24, 2007) that a number of initiatives are being considered by
the Minister of Home Affairs and his team to halt the road
carnage. This is a welcome sign, given the minister's inten-
tron to action the proposed recommendations, which I believe
should also include the banning of used tyres.
Among the steps being considered and is stated as the last item
on the recommendations-- is reducing the tariff on tyres to avoid
importation of used tyres. I do hope that this recommendation by
its position of placement is not an indication of its importance.
It is interesting to note, that the tariff on used tyres is 5%~ comn-
par~ed to new passenger tyres of 30%.This nmy suggest a policy of
supporting the importation of used tyres. This position actually com-
promises the safety of commuters.
While the price of a used tyre is 20%~ of a new one, the costs to
the individual and the nation is substantially higher.
Indeed, no amount of money, no amount of platitudes, no amount
of punishment, and no amount of talk can compensate for the loss
of lives and the resulting costs to this nation.
Speeding has been given a great deal of attention in addressing
the road fatalities and rightly so but the tyres on the vehicles are
often overlooked in this spiral increase in the road carnage.
Driving at moderate speed with defective tyres will produce the
same results--tyre blow out; vehicle turns turtle; loss of lives.
Tyres are critical for the movement of the vehicle and therefore
the safety of the passengers is hinged on having "road worthy" or
quality tyres. The tyres support the load of the vehicle and provide
good contact with the road.
With used tyres already worn to 80%~ of its tread life and defec-

The pltis side is that Trinidad and Tobago has earned a7 reputa-
tion for conducting free and fair elections and the current EBC's
personnel would be expected to carry out their functions consis-
tent with maintaining that credibility.
In relation to reported claims of political intimidation, violence
and vandalism--including defacing and destruction of posters, ban-
ners and damage to a few constituency offices of candidates, such
regrettable developments have already evoked condemnations from
the three contesting parties as well as Police Commissioner. Trevor

have been generally impressed with the absence of any political vio-

respect for the expressed will of the electorate.
No national elections in any of our CARICOM states is known
to have been altogether free of political skirmishes, including acts
of vandalism in the heat of campaigning. Jamaica and Guyana, are
of course, notable exceptions.

Just over a fortnight ago, in disCussing the state of campaigning
for the coming November 5 poll with a Jamaican colleague, I noted
how good it has generally been covering elections in Trinidad and
Tobago without having to worry about one's physical safety while
sharing the laughter as platform speakers mix their picong and
mauvais langue with attempts at serious commentaries on social,
economic and political problems and challenges.
The overwhelming complaints of vandalism arid violence have
been coming from the COP and, more recently the UNC/Alliance
while; in contrast, the incumbent People's National Movement
(PNM), has gone on the defensive, emphasising that election cam-
paign violence has never been a feature of its political history..
Last week Police Com'missioner Paul felt compelled to inform
a media briefing o~f his deep concerns over elections-related violence.
He has apperiled for all parties, candidates arid activists to demon-
strate respect for the rights of others to enable a healthy climate
for peaceful campaigning.
It is, therefore, to be assumed that given his stated aware-
ness of the dangerous trend, Commissioner Paul would now
haire in place effective mechanisms and arrangements to curb
the practices that have generated the prevailing fears and con-
cerns for the November 5 election.

TWO IMPORTANT issues that have not generally been part
of national elections in either Trinidad and Tobago, or Barba-
dos, have noiv been introduced into the coming November 5
poll in that twin-island member state of the Caribbean Com,-.
They are: Calls for independent monitoring of the election and
rising complaints from opposition parties and candidates against
vandalism and violence.
At the time of writing, a 22-niember CARICOM team of moni-
tors was preparing to head to Trinidad and Tobago as the only such
mission after Prime Minister Patrick Manning finally responded
to a written request from leader of the new Congress of People
(COP), Winston Dookeran, for overseas election observers.
COP, as well as the main opposition United National Congress/
Alliance, were quick to react with disappointment by declaring it
was simply "not enough" to have just a CARICOM monitoring
COP had requested missions from the Commonwealth and
Organisation ~of American States, inv addition to one from
CARICOM, consistent with a pattern set for observing national
elections in other Community member states, including Guyana and
However, the guiding rule for overseas election monitors is that
they must be' invited by the Head of Government of the country
involved. In this case, Mr Manning, who chose to simply restrict
the exercise to a CARICOM mission without any explanation..
-This positioh was previously used to full advauitage in Guyana
under the rule of successive People's National Congress governments
led by Forbes Burnham. It had the effect of preventing approved
monitoring of Guyalia elections--including by CARICOM. ~

That policy came to an end with the conduct of the 1992 elec-
tion anid subsequent change in government to become the norm for
CARICOM to r~egularly be involved in monitoring elections in Com-
muhity states as well as being invited to do so in other Common-
wealth countries,
Question: Why has monitoring of elections in the 15-member
Community not yet been institutionalized as a firm policy by
CARICOM, consistent with the provisions and spirit of its "Charter
of Civil Society"?
Surely this would he preferable to current ad hoc arrangements
that have to be made and based on the mood and prior consent of a
Head of Government.
Once accepted as the norm, the CARICOM Secretaiat
could work out appropriate standing arrangements, inchiding
relevant time-frames for meaningful observance by
monitors drawn fi'om a pool of experienced and reputable
Community and other nationals. -
In making this observation, it is necessary to also.beware of a
related outstanding challenge for CARICOM: The Charter of Civil
.Society, proothimed ten years ago, is yet to be approved by Com-
munity parliaments to become legally binding ojn participating states.
For now, with just one week to go befoirt the November 5 poll
.in Trinidad and Tobago, we simply.have to wait an$ see how re-
ally useful it was to have at least the CARICOMi monitoring mis-
The mission would be expected to, for instance,, fan out across

Fifteen months ago, the
armed wing of Lebanon's
Hezbollah party, listed as a
terrorist organisation by the
United States and most other
Western countries, attacked
Israel's northern border,
capturing two Israehi soldiers
and killing eight more. Israel
replied with a month of
massive air attacks all across
Lebanon that destroyed much
of the country's
infrastructure, levelled a good
deal of south Beirut,~ and
killed around a thousand
Lebanese civilians.

Washington, London,
Ottawa and some other Western
capitals insisted that this was a
reasonable and proportionate
response, and shielded Israel
fromn intense diplomatic
pressure to stop the attacks
even when Israel launched a
land invasion of southern
Lebanon in earl-y August, 2006.
The operation only ended when
Israeli casualties on the ground
mounted rapidly and the Israeli
government pulled its troops
So what would be a
reasonable and proportionate

Turkish response to the recent
attacks by the Kurdistan
Workers' Party (PKK), listed as
a terrorist organisation by the

Western countries, from
northern Iraql into south-eastern
Turkey?~ More than forty
Turkish civilians and soldiers
have been killed in these attacks
over the' past two weeks, and a
further eight Turkish soldiers
were captured. ~
Well, it would be
unreasonable for T'urkey to
bomb Iraq, where the PKK's
bases are, for any more than

one month. It would be quite
disproportionate for the

Big nations should

compensate small .countries

for poaching skills

_ I _/ I

(The writer is a business consultant and former Caribbean

The Caribbean has been losing its highly educated people to
industrialized nations at an alarming rate. The situation is
set to worsen with a proposal by the European Commission
(EC) that European Union countries should introduce a "Lblue
card" to attract highly skilled immigrants to fill much needed
job vacancies.
The proposal was unveiled on October 23rd by the EC Presi-
dent Malnuel Barroso and Justice and Homse Affairs Commissioner,
Franco Frattini.
In announcing the plan, Frattini described it as a "global job
advertising blitz" to attract engineers, doctors, nurses and IT work-
ers from Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean .
There are two motivations behilid the plan: first, Europe 's
population is aging but living longer, so the cost of keeping pen-
stoners mn social security schemes is rising every year. On present
trends, the EC reckons that the burden of paying for the livelihood
of one retired person will fall on twot workers, whereas today the
load is shared by four workers. Secbnd, the fall in the population
of woi-kirig age, and the requirement for modern skills, has left the
European market with huge gaps. If Europe is to remilin competi-
tive with the US and Japan ii requires skilled workers.
The EC has calculated that by thle year 2030, Europe will have
a shortfall of 20 million skilled workers.
The objective is to put the blue card scheme in place by 2009
while giving each EU member state the right to opt out of it if they
The blue card will operate alon~ similar lines to the green card
system used in the United States of America (US). It would allow
qualified immigrants to live, and wqrk in one EU country and then
move to a second country. After five consecutive years, they could
apply to stay permanently. donditjions of employment and social
security would be the same as those applicable to EU citizens.
Other in'dustrialised nations have been recruiting skilled
persons from developing coun ries for years to keep their
economies competitive and to create a band of workers whose
contributions to social securityischemes help to pay for the

lation being immigrants, and then the US at 3.2% again on a pro-
portionate basis, the Caribbean
numbers are high. And, finally,
there is the EU at 1.7%. .
Europe's problem is that
whereas only 5%.of its inimi- 1 ~zn~~
grants are skilled workers, 55% ~
of the immigrants to the UlS are
skilled. The EC clearly intend to .
use the blue card system to catch
up with its global competitors,-- :
As the EC President said, "With / -
the European blue card, we send *
a clear signal: highly skilled work-
ers from all over the world .are
welcome in the .Europeah
This may be a boon to-some
developing countries in Asia with
large populations and relatively
large pools of qualified people. India for instance, would no doubt
quietly welcome the EU opening its doors to 20 million skilled mi-
grants by 2030. Producing more Univeisity graduates annually than
several EU countries combined, a few million skilled immigrants from
india would be an ant bite on an elephapt's back.
B It small regions, such as- the C~aribbean have to view
this ajs a troubling development. Al -eady, mor than 80% of
the tertiary educated people of Jambica and G yana work in
industrialized countries. The figures pre in excess of 60%0 for
Trinidad and Tobago and Suriname and the numbers are -un-
acceptably high for countries such aS Antigua andr Barbdda ,
St Kitts-Nevis.and St Lucia .
SThese small countries pay heavily to educate and train their
people to tertiary level only tid lose them to the needs of

industriaised nations. This is, in fact, a huge subsidy being paid
by developing nations to the economlies of richer countries, while
they, themselves, suffer from lack of sufficiently skilled personnel
in both the public and private sectors.
And, while the EU Commissioners have said that to avoid
a damaging brain drain in developing countries, standards
would be set to limit or ban active recruitment, that statement
is hardly worth the breath it took to utter it. Recruitment will
be pursued by ~private agencies anyway, and the simple knowl-
edge of the blue card's availability is a big enough advertise-
ment; little elde is needed.
In Germariy where politicians predictably voiced their oppo-
sition to an EUT blue card that is binding on Germany the country's
business leaders supported it, saying that Germany is crying out
for skilled workers such as IT specialists and engineers.
The industrialized nations tire taking the cream of the skills from
developing countries with no compensation. It is clear that this is
a trend that will intensify in the coming decades,
This points to the urgent need for an international discussion
on the issue of migration in several fora, including the United Na-
tional Economic and Social Council, the international Labour.
Organisation. the World Bank,. UNESCO and the World Trade
There are several dimensions to this discussion:but develop-
mnent lies at its core. Simply put, industrialized nations are benefit-
ing from a transfer of resources from developing countries without
coiinpensation. At the rate at which this transfer of resources is
projected to occur, small developing economies in particular will
suffer not only from loss of badly needed skills, but also from little
retur-n.on the large suins of money that they invest in training.
It is time that global arrangements be settled for
developing countries to be compensated by industrialized
nations !for the provision of skills. Small, developing

ing: a population of almost

the Pampas, the Cerrado; a

US$1.5 trillion annually: a

lavish renewable and non-re-
newable energy resources;
huge mineral reserves; a

And excepting South
America. most parts of the
world are politically integranted,
as Asia (Association of
Southeast Nations). Europe
(European Union). Africa
(African Union). Caribbean
(CARICOM). North America
(NAFTAL. etc.
However, the Cuzco and
Ayaculcho Declarantions in 2004
gave birth to a new fledgling
integration model. the South
American Community of Nations
(SACN): its real meaning is the
integration of the peoples of
South Amlerica and the Caribbean;
and SACN seeks to amalgamate
into its fold Mercosur and the
Andean Community (CAN),
which could confer on SACN
enormous negotiating power with
the U.S.-led North American
Free Trade Area Agreement
(NAFTA) and the WTO.

And now we have the
imminent 'Bank of the

nemesis of the Washington

Bank intends to obliterate the
factors making for South
American financial
dependence; these factors,
among others, are as follows:
1. sustained dependency on
funds from the International
Monetary Fund (IMF). the
World Bank. and the Inter-
American Development Bank,
etc.. to address indebtedness
and external shocks:
2. International Finaincial

T`he Bank of the South

Cochabamba Summit in 2006.
In addition, the Financial &
Integration Working Group of'
SACN discussed the 'Bank of
the South' at meetings at
BANCOEX in Caracas andi
Montevideo, Urulguay in 2006,.
The Caracas meeting produced
preliminary conclusions which
were subject to furtlher

"One of the advantages of

that it would reflect the

The Chavez detractors
skew their arguments to show

that the Bank is a
manipulating exercise to
advance the Venezuelan
President's political agenda of
some sort of '21st century
socialism'; and to further
show that Brazil, the strongest
ally to the establishment of
this Bank, supports the Bank
largely because of its
increasing export trade with
Venezuela. and not focusing
on Brazil's sincere
commitment to remove South
Amlerica's financial
dependence on IFls. These
detractors may be unable to
fathom the indigestible and
deleterious consequences of
South America's financial
dependence on IFls.
However. regional

One movie that I watched

some time and enjoyed im-
mensely was 'Crash'. For
those who haven't seen it,
permit me to offer something
of' a plot summary. The

movie was set in Los Angeles,
better known as LA. It follows
the lives of several people of
different ethnic and cultural
backgrounds and explores

how they interact with each
other. While the movie's
events evolve around what
the title suggests, an auto.
mobile accident, the main

message is about the 'colli-
sions' the characters have
with each other throughout a
particular timeline.
Tolerance is broader than
the narrlow field of racial tole-
ance or- intolerance. Tolera~nce at

joined PYARG and were successful attested to their
discipline and their ability to achieve results.
He also urged the young people to help in re-educating the
older ones about the history of Guyana, since some of then
are still pained by the ethnic uprisings of the 1960's which, he
said, were engineered by Western nations who teared that
Guyana was becoming a socialist nation after Cuba.
Mr. Jagdeo said that the government is continuing to place
heavy emphasis on education, with spending in the sector ex-
ceeding $20B.
He said it is unprecedented in the history of Guyana that
some 800 students are on scholarships overseas, and about 80
young doctors will return to the country next year after com-
pleting studies in Cuba.
Mr. Jagdeo hailed the PYARG as a crowning achievement
for youth development in Guyana, and he urged the successful
participants to advance their personal goals.
Minister of Culture. Youth and Sport Dr. Frank Anthony
said that the programme will be improved next year, to ensure
that it remain relevant and successful.
He said new opportunities will be explored and this would
meclude closer collaboration with the National Tru~st to preserve
historic sites and boost heritage tourism. He said also that
Guyana's hosting of Carifesta X will provide opportunities for
various areas of volunteering.
According to Dr. Anthony, the PYARG Secretariat would
be strengthened, the Board would be revamped, the regional of-
fices would be boosted, and there would be improved collabo-
ration with government agencies.prgam tpe piss-

cial responsibilities, with some participants serving as peer edu-
cators and developing successful edu-entertainment modules in
sending "the right vibes" about HIV/AIDS prevention, treat-
ment and care.
IDr. Anthony said he wants PYARG to expand to target non-
communicable diseases such as obesity and hypertension. He
said also he wants the programme to expand to cater for areas
such as climate change.
Students qualify for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards
after completing various exercises lasting six months, 12 months,
and 18 months respectively.
PYARG was adopted from the International Award for
Young People, a development of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award
which was introduced in Britain in 1956.
PYARG is now in all ten administrative regions.

Too much cannabis 'worsens pain'

Doubts over pregnancy drink ban

(BBC News) Women who have beetn treated for early signs of
cervical cancer have a high risk of the disease decades later,
say Swedish researchers-
Regullar smear tests shoulld be offe~red to those with pre-can-
cerous lesions for at least 25 years. they said.
Current guidelines for UK women who have been tr-eated for
the condition called carcinoma-in-situ recommennd annual screening
for 10 years-
The study of 133,000 women is published in the British Medi-
cal Journal.
Cervical screening is offered to women in the UK at three-year
intervals between the ages of 25 and 49 and then every five years
until the age of 64 years. .
It is done to pick up changes to cells in the surface layer of the
cervix which may later develop into cancer.
If abnormal cells are detected they can be monitored, destroyed
or removed- -
Swedish researchers looked at data on women who had been
dliagnosed with the most severe pre-cancerous Icsions commllonly
known as carcinoma-in-situ between 1958 and 2002. .
They found the women were more than twice as likely to de-
velop cervical cancer as the general female population and se~ven
times more likely to develop vaginal cancer.
The risk remains for 20 years or mor~e, the results suggest.
They also found that there was an increasing risk of cervical
cancer if the woman was older at the time of diagnosis, with a much
higher risk for women aged over 50.

Study leader. Dr Bjorn Strander. se~nior consultant in obstetrics
and gynaccology at thle Univer-sity of' Gothenburg. Swedelcn. said:
"It must be considered a failure of the' med'cical service when women
participate in screening. their pre-cancerous lesions are foundi and
they subject themselves to trecatmecnt of those lesions. presumably
participate in follow-up progralmmes. and still develop invasive can-
He added that follow-up care had to date been insufficient and
women should be offe~red screening at regular intrvnals for at least
25 years after treatment.
Dr Anne Szarewski,. honorary senior lecturer at the Cancer Re-
search UK Centre: for Epidemiology. Mathematics and Statistics in
London. said less aggressive treatments for cervical abmnomalities
had been used in the past 20 years, which may have left women
more at risk of developing cancer in the long-term.
But she said that the risk had to be balanced agrainst the huge
advantages for most women of avoiding hysterectomy and other
treatments which would impair their fe~rtility.
"It should be rememberedd that the majority of' women wfho are
found to have high grade cervical abnormalities are in their 30s andi
carly 40s. a timec when they mnay have not comlpleted or even
-started their family.
She said the issue of' longer-term follow-up of these women
should certainly be considered.
"WYe need to think about whether women will find this re-
assuring but also up to what age they would be willing to un-
dergo screening "

( BBC NEWS) Smoking large
amounts of cannabis for
therapeutic reasons may in-
crease rather than reduce
pain, a US study suggests.
The pain-relieving qualities
of cannabis have long been
hailed, and several countries
have made it available for me-
dicmnal purposes,
But quantity is key, accord-
ing to the study in the journal
University of California re-
searchers found moderate use
had the greatest impact on pain
in 15 volunteers, while large
doses actually made pain worse.

The team recruited 15
healthy volunteers, in whom
pain was induced by injecting
capsaicin the "hot" chemical
found in chilli peppers under
their skin.
They were then given can-
nabis to smoke. The strength of
the dose was determined by the
retrahydrocannabinol content,
which is the main active chemi-
cal in cannabis.
Some of the volunteers were
given a placebo.
Five minutes after smoking
the drug, none of the doses had
any effect on the pain felt.
But 45 minutes later, those

who had smoked the moderate
dose said their pain was much
better, while those who con-
sumed high doses said it had got
They did, however, feel
"higher" than counterparts who
had taken moderate doses.
Dr Mark Wallace, the
lead researcher, said the find-
ings could have implications
for the way medicinal can-
nabis was offered, both in
pure and drug form.
Some experts are concerned
that results on healthy volun-
teers could not be translated
into how cannabis works in the

bodies of those with cancer or
multiple sclerosis, for whom
t~he drug is increasingly seen as
a potential form of pain relief.
-Dr Laura Bell, of the
MS Society, said: "Many
people with MS report
benefits to symptoms such
as pain from taking can-
nabis, however studies to
date on the effects of can-
nabis on pain are small and
difficult to draw firm con-
clusions from.
"We would be interested
to see the results from larger
scale studies focused on
people with MS."

(BBC News) Women should
decide for themselves if they
want to drink small amounts
of alcohol in pregnancy, a doc-
tor says. .
Obstetrician Pat O'Brien
said experts should not be mak-
ing a value judgment. the Brit-
ish Medical Journal reported..
He said there w~as no evi-
dence that lowy to moderate

However, there is confusion
as NHS advisory body, the Na-

Mr O'Brien said: 'lmn not

weather helps



FALLBROOK, Calif., (Reuters) Cool weather and calm
skies helped thousands of firefighters beat back Southern
California wildfires yesterday, although flare-ups in some
places meant the battle was not yet over.
In many areas. residents ventured back through charred land-
scapes to see if their homes were still standing or were among
the 2,.300 buildings around San Diego and Los Angeles that were
destroyed over the past week.
Cool, cloudy weather that rolled in on Friday offered relief
to weary firefighters and put to rest at least temporarily -
fears that fresh wmnds could further stoke blazes that have al-
ready killed 12 people.
"It helped yesterday ( Friday) and it's helping again today
( Saturdayr. Looking ahead to tomorrow ( today), they are sup-
posed to get some scattered rain over the area. The weather's
really helping out quite a bit," said Randy Eardley, a spokes-
man for the National Interagency Fire Center.
Despite the optimism, firefighters were still battling nine
blazes threatening hundreds of homes.
Efforts were focusing on the largest fire, in San Diego
County, that has burned more than 300 square miles (800 sq
km) and on the Santiago Fire, a smaller blaze in Orange County
that media reports said had turned more ferocious overnight.
The big San Diego fire was 60 percent contained by noon
yesterday, up from 45 percent earlier in day, Eardley said.
In Fallbrook, about 40 miles (65 km) north of San Diego,
work crews surveyed damage from fires that had gutted many
homes and blackened large swathes of land, according to a

RetIwevr atoiies said they were turning away Fallbrook
residents hoping to survey the damage until they made sure
downed power lines in burned-out areas were switched off.
Nearly two dozen fires have burned about 800 square miles
(2,100 sq km) over the past week, with about tw'o-thirds of
that contained as of late Friday, according to government data.
The losses are expected to top $1 billion in hard-hit San
Diego County akine.
More than 320,000 people were still evacuated, though that
had fallen from a- peak of more than 500,000, according to the
state's Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said the state
would give cash grants of up to $10,000 to some of those
who lost their homes or belongings or needed medical

A Culture of Hooliganism

OVER the past few days, we
have seen -a horrifying
escalation in road fatalities.
In fact, information from
GINA and the traffic
headquarters of the Guyana
Police Force indicates that
there have been twenty-two
road deaths in twelve days.
Road fatalities~are up by an
astounding forty-four percent
.From January to today's date
there have been one hundred
and fifty-seven road deaths.
This is frightening as well as
unacceptable considering the
already diminutive nature of
our population.
According to the traffic
department, fifty -three percent
of fatal accidents are as a result
of speeding. It is very troubling
indeed that with the continuous
efforts of the Guyana Police
force, as well as the collaborative
efforts of Government and the
private sector, to address this
growing problem, that motorists
continue to drive in a way that
is reckless and harmful to the
public .
While the efforts of the
dedicated traffic ranks must be
applauded, it cannot be
emphasized sufficiently that
desperate situations require
desperate measures. I am
confident that government-
stands ready to support the
efforts of the force in bringing an
end to this senseless loss of
lives, bearing in mind that what
is needed is not just efforts, but
results. I am also confident that
even as the Ministry of Home
Affairs is presently looking into
this grave national issue that
there will very shortly be seen
an intensifying in the efforts and
significant adjustments and
improvements in the
methodologies of the Guyana
Police force in curbing this
It must however be made
very clear that the responsibility
for safety on our roadways does
not lie solely with the Guyana
Police Force. Road users,
especially motorists have been
educated on a continuous basis
on the subject of proper road
use. Ever since the
reintroduction of traffic lights,
there seems to be an increase in
lawlessness on the streets. .
Overtaking on curbs,
undercutting, backstreet driving,
honking of horns, and running
through the red lights, are all
daily occurrences. It is very
often an embarrassing
experience for me when taking
foreigners around. People are
always amazed at the display of
lawlessness by motorists,
seldom seen in other parts of
the world .The culture of

hooliganism is so pervasive. It
takes more than lnw
enforcement to curb this
situation. What is needed most
is an attitude of adjustment. It
is therefore the responsibility of
every road user to make
intelligent and informed choices
and decisions on how they will
utilize the roadways. The

increase in vehicular traffic on
our roadways, along with the
limited staffing of the Traffic
department. provides a real
challenge~ in the effective
enforcement of traffic laws.
However it is of grave necessity
that the citizens of this country
recognize that there is a moral
and civil responsibility they

have to drive in a conscientious
manner without the duress of
the law.
Failure to be so guided will
inevitably rrsult inthe mayhemanud
crnage we have experienced over
the past few days.
I am therefore calling
upon all Guyanese, but more
specifically those who are the

drivers of motor vehicles, to
observe the road safety rules,
with which they should be
familiar. Observe the speed
limits; they are for your own
safety. If you are a commuter,
refuse to travel in a vehicle
that is speeding. Remember
the next life your save may be
your own.

CI's Global Conservation

The Wai Wai homeland is
part of the Guayana Shield, a
huge stretch of Amazon
rainforest across six South
American countries. The region
provides habitat to the jaguar,
blue poison frog, cock of the
rock, scarlet macaw and other
Amazon wildlife.
CI is promoting the value of
the Wai Wai tropical forest for
carbon sequestration, clean wa-
tersheds and other ecosystem
services it provides. Cutting and
burning tropical forests contrib-
utes 20 percent of the total
greenhouse gas emlissions blamed
for global warming, and the
world's burgeoning carbon mar-
ket means developing countries
such as Guyana could benefit
from the market vallue of stand-

said the Wai Wai "know about
climate change. they don't need
anyone to tell them." President
Bharrat Jagdeo said it is not the
argument that the Wai Wai do not
understand climate change, the
problem is that their voice is not
taken seriously.
He said the Wai Wai people
have seen floods which have de-
stroyed their agriculture, and
their way of life. although they
by themselves have not contrib-
uted to these woes since they ~
have been practicing sound con-
servantion practices.
Mr Jagdeo said he was
happy that all the Amerindian
Toshaos have agreed to sign a
resolution calling for the in-
ternational community to re-
ward Guyana for keeping its
forest intact, almost 80 per-
cent of which remains in its
pristine state.
SHe said while initiatives like
that of the Wai Wai COCA, and

rainforest may make this~ coun-
try a museumm piece", the gov-
ernment wants to see the devel-
oped world pay, because they
are the ones who are the biggest

ber, when global crusaders
against climate change meet to j
start robust discussions on fram-
ing a new agreement to replace :
the first international agreement'
on climate change, known' as thej
Kyoto Protocol.
Protectors of the forest, like:
the Wai Wai people know that
while they have agreed to pro-
tect the forest, they would get r
better life if they get money).
"Everybody want money," Paur
Chekema. a former Wai Wai chief
bluntly put it.
He said while they hav
seen improved access to edu-
cation and healthcare, getting
Jobs to make a living has been
difficult. Chekema, who has
called for the early establish-
ment of the Trust Fund, is
confident that the COCA will
help to change their economic
stand in life, while at the
same time, protect their land.
"We want to serve our
area...We want to protect our
water for all who are in
Essequibo." said Chekema.
The current Wai Wai chief,
Cemci James Suse, shares the
same view. Citing an example, he
said when they tried to catch
fish to sell, they end up losing,
since the closest community-and
market for them, Aishalton, is a
two week journey, and they
don't know how to keep the fish
alive for that long.
He said the lack of jobs
has forced the Wai Wai youth
across the border to Brazil and
they never return, resulting in
the dwindling population,
which was at one time some
800. He related that because
of the migration, the Wai Wai
only have "four old people
with us".
Minister of Amermndian Af-
fairs Ms Carolyn R~odrigues
noted that the first launch of the
COCA took place on Septemsber
26, 2007 in the village of
Masakenari, where the Wai Wai

live in the Konashen district.'
It was also launched at, a
Latin American Parks Confer-
ence in Argentina, which helped
to bring international recognition
to the project.
"This shows the power of
giving land rights to indigenous
populations, because they know
what's best for- their communi-
ties." Cl President Russell A.
Mittermeter was quoted as say-
ing in a press release by CI an-
nouncing the COCA.
"The Wai Wai could have
sold off the timber and other
natural assets for a one-time
payoff, but instead they
chose to protect the
rainforest and allow future
generations to continue to
beifefit from it."
CI works in more than 40)
countries on four continents
to lielp people find economic
alternatives without harming
,their natural environinents.

VOCATIONAL Service is the way Rotary fosters and supports
the application of the ideal of service in pursuit of all voc~a-

October is the month during the Rotary year when Vocational
Service gets special emphasis.
The Rotary club of Stabrock this month conducted several ac-
tivities to promote the ideals of Vocational Service to Rotarians and
to the public.
Activities included classification talks by Rotarians which are
essential for promoting vocational awareness within the club. The
presentations gave members the chance to learn the inner workings
of another job, including the challenges and counteracting strate-
gies. As a means of promoting vocations of Rotarians, RC Stabroek
held their first meeting for this month at the workplace of a fel-
low Rotarian. In culminating vocational service month and to add
to the diversity of the clubs vocations, two prospective members
were inducted as Rotarians at the club's last dinner meeting at Le
Meridien Pegasuls.
In inducting the new Rotarians, the club's President, Dirk

trustees of Rotary's ideals. The President challenged the new
Rotarians to practice the principles of goodwill and service in their
professional life and represent their vocation in a way that pro-

PHYLLIS Jordan (backgoud centre) and Jennifer Flatts (bkgrd. right) consult each other during a Operation Restoration
abstinence education programme.

PHYLLIS Jordan is indisput-
ably a true believer. She
speaks with conviction and
passion about the work of Op---
eration Restoration. OR is
arguably the country's most -
prominent proponent of ab-
stinence in the fight against
thespreadof HIV. Abstinence
is one of the three main pil-
lars of Guyana's ABC preven-
tion strategy; the other two
are "Being Faithful" and
"Condom" use.
The trained teacher is frank
and open in her representation
of abstinence, with a later
pledge of fidelity aftermnarriage,
as the only real way to prevent
the spread of HIV. A youthful
looking TFfty years old and un-
married, Jordan is proud to say
that she personally abstained all
her life.
Phyllis Jordan is a virgin.
She believes that while a
lifestyle of abstinence is hard
and comes with some sacrifice
- she has given up soul music,
for example--- it is achievable.
The official responses to
abstinence programmes have
usually been considered and
somewhat reserved. Endorse-
ment of abstinence has al-
ways been followed byv the ca-
veat that it needs to be con-
sidered within the context of
all three components of the
larger ABC strategy. For ex-
ample, when OR launched
and distributed their absti-
nence advocacy dossier "Ab-
stinence: A Win-Wlin Strat-
egy against the Spread of
HIV/AIDS" earlier this year.
one of the speakers was Dr.
Shanti Singh, the Head of
the National AIDS
Programme Secretariat. Ac-
cording to a G;uyana
Chronicle article on the
event, "D~r. Shanti Singh said
while abstinence is a safe
wray to go in figShtinlg HIV/
AIDS, it mlust not be the end
all. She posited that there
was an even bigger rotle for
condoml use. citingf the IUgan-
danl experience w\hich~ .4aw

cause of its condlom use

the Health Ministry alsll pro-

If Abstinence is not iur-
rently ate the forefront of or rn-
ordinaitely central Guyana's HIV
prevention strategy, HIV pre-
vention is not at the forefront
of or inordinately central to Op-
eration Restoration's abstinence
OR was formed two years
ago when Jordan was contacted
by Jennifer Flatts, a pastor and
social worker. Flatts was al-
ready conducting a personal ab-
stinence education programme
of her own within small groups
of young people. The two met,
spoke about what they could do
to stem what they saw as a
sexuid crisis in Guyana, and
Operation Restoration was
The NGO focuses on
what a brochure on its opera-
tions defines as "primary"
and "secondary" virginity.
The concept according to Jor-
dan is that primary virgins
are people who have never
had sexual intercourse be-
fore. A secondary virgin is
someone who has had sexual
relations before but has
pledged to stop until they are
married. According to Jor-
dan, OR's programlmes focus
on self-control, self-esteem
and self-awareness. She says
that a lifestyle of abstinence
means being aware of sexual
boundaries, knowing onleself
and loving oneself. TIhe

TWO years ago, on another
October evening, a day after
another Challenger Trophy,
the national selectors de-
cided to "rest" another
former Indian captain,
Souray Ganguly, then out
with a mild injury, was left out
of the Indian squad for the first
two matches of the home series
against Sri Lanka and needed to
wait another year and a half be-
fore his next one-dayer.
Now it's Dravid who faces
the brunt. "Rest" is a commonly
used euphemism in Indian selec-
tion circles and what it means
is anyone's guess. -Dilip
Vengsarkar, the current chair-
inan of selectors, has said
Dravid "will be back soon" but
also added "fitness and fielding
have become very important in
the one-day game, so be will

state -
Logic suggests that
Dravid has been .dropped for
his fielding. If true, there
will be a few in the squad

contribution rather than a series

ago Dravid was being urged to

Now he's dispensable. Is there
a method lai place or are we to
assume it is plain madness?'
Whatever the reasons, one
can't help thinking that the se-
lectors have chosen an easy es-
cape route.
Leaving Dravid out isn't a
decision you assume would
provoke public outrage one
doubts if any effigies have ever
been burned in his support and
even if it did, a victory or two

Somewhere along the
line, when his side are in-

Mahendra Singh Dhoni will
look around the dressing
room for someone who can
curb his flashy style and do
the dirty job of scrapping
hard. Finding no one to fill
the breach, he-might look
back on today's selection
meeting and ponder about
what might have been.

Alonzo Greaves registered
one hour 11 minutes 50 see-
onds in winning the feature
30-lap event of the Troy
Humphrey/James Fowler
Memorial Cycle Programme
which was staged in the Na-
tional Park yesterday.
Greaves, who won the inau-
gural inter-Guiana Games road
race one week earlier, won four
of the ten prime prizes that
were up for grabs while second-
placed finisher Warren McKay,
who was beaten in a sprint
home, won five. Ninth-placed
finisher Robin Persaud won the
other prime.
Junior Niles, Andrew
Prand, Eion 'Dum aBI ,

Tyrone Hamilton, Darren
Allen and Tyrone Conway
occupied the other top seven
positions respectively.
From the beginning of the
event which attracted 17 start-
ers, Greaves went to the front
mn company with Charles with
the other 15 competitors in
close pursuit, but by the
completion of the following lap,
McKay, Allen and Persaud
joined the two leaders.
By the third lap, the pack
was tightly grouped and was
headed by Hamilton, followed
closely by Charles, Greaves and
Jaikaran Sukhai, among others.
Persaud then took over
the lead from Niles, Greaves
and Boodhram, while the
main chasing pack was some
distance away.
Boodhram then took up the
pace during the fifth lap and led
Greaves and Hamilton with the
Others approximately 20 metres
During the sixth lap,
Greaves attacked and McKay
responded and from there the
duo worked in tandem and no
one challenged them for the
top two positions.
However, with 20 laps re-
maining, George Charles was
lapped by the leaders and was
duly called out of the race and
with six laps remaining, Greaves
and McKay went on to lap
Charles, Hamilton, Allen,
Persaud and ConwYay, but they
were never called out of the race
and continued to ride with the
leaders, even assisting in pacing,
but coming for the finish,
McKay started the sprint,
Greaves responded and went on
to win by approximately half a

AHMIEDABAD, India (Reuters) Indian selectors have
dropped experienced batsman Rahul Dravid for the first
two one-day internationals against Pakistan next month.
Dravid, 34, averages less than 10 in his Ilast 10 one-day

"He is a great player. He will be back very soon."
Pakistan will play five one-day internationals and three
Tests mn India from November 5.
Explosive opener Virender Sehwag, dropped for the England
tour due to poor form, regained his place.
"He's back mn form," Vengsarkar said of Sehwag, who was
part of the team that won the Twenty20 World Cup in South
Dravid, one of seven bats-
men in the world to score over
.1 10 000 one-day runs, gave up
Sthe captaincy last month after

He looked out of sorts in
the one-day series against Aus-
tralia, scoring just 51 in five
completed innings.
The visitors won the
seven-match series 4-2 after
the opening game was washed
"If they need him, he'll be
there for the next fecw games,"
RAHULDRAVID Vengsarkar said of Dravid,
dropped fromm the one-day
team for only the second time in his career.
"Fitness and fielding are very important. We have given himn

FORMER England coach
Duncan Fletcher says Andrew
Flintoff let him down with
his World Cup drinking an-
Flintoff fell off~a pedalo and
was~ one of six England players
fined following a drinking ses-
sion after England's defeat to
New Zealand in St Lucia.
The all-rounder had also
been warned as to his future
conduct during the Ashes de-
feat when he was England's
And Fletcher told the Daily
Mail: "I supported Andrew but
he let me down in an area that
he had real control over."
Flintoff captained England
to a 5-0 Ashes defeat in Austra-
lia in the absence of Michael
Vaughan. ..
And he was sacked as En-

gland vice-captain at the
World Cup and banned for a
game after the pedalo inci-
dent following the six-wicket
defeat to New Zealand.
England then failed to
progress beyond the Super
Eight stage at the World Cup in

"I've supported a lot of
players but Andrew drank again
at the World Cup after what had
happened in Australia while I
was taking a pasting." Fletcher
"I don': regret marking him
"The prLoblem was, in the
absence oi Vaughan, there
were so mancy unknowns.

how bad might Fred (Flintoff)
have been with the whole drink-
ing thing ifhe hadn'thad the re-

And would he have taken Steve
Hrmlison with him'?,,
The Zimbabwe-born coach
is also hoping for a return to
county cricket, having been at
Glamorgan before taking up
his post with England.
"I spent two years in
county cricket and l'd like to do
that again," he stiid.
"I think I have become a hell
of' a better coach since my time
at Glamorgan and I know how
to handle situations better.
"Having gained the expe-

it would be nice to go back
and put into practice what I
perceive to be missing in
county cricket." (BBC Sport)

West Indies

A SENIOR member of the West Indies Cricket Board
(WICB) is in Zimbabwe assessing the security situation
in the country ahead of a scheduled tour next month.
There is particular interest in the arrangements as the West
Indies were forced to cancel a proposed A-team tour in July
after a number of players refused to travel to the country after
receiving information from contacts within and close to the coun-
Originally the November tour was to involve Test and
ODIs, but Zimbabwe's continuing se&-imposed suspension
from Test cricket means that only one-day matches are now
on the itinerary.
If the WICB fails to honour its commitments under the
UCC's Future Tours Programme then it faces a fine in excess of

Tony Howard, the cricket operations manager of the WICB,
downplayed the security concerns when questioned by the Zim-
babwe Independent, saying his visit was only a "normal pre-
tour" assessment.
He was accompanied by a Canadian-based security ex-
pert, ex-Zimbabwean Darren Maughan.
The pair have met with Home Affairs Minister Kembo
Mohadi and are due to meet Augustine Chihuri, the Commis-
sioner of Police.
"LWe are not here to assess the security situation in
Zimbabwe as such, but on a normal pre-tour assessment,"
Howard told the newspaper,
"Security is only one aspect of our mission here and that's
why I have a security expert travelling with me." 'A' teams
hrom India, South Africa and Sri Lanka have all toured Zimba-
bwe recently, and while none had had any security issues, there
have been problems with accommodation and the availability
of food.
Zimbabwe continues to suffer from major shortages.
If the tour is to go ahead then it will need a major about-
turn from the West Indies Players' Association.
Ahead of the scrapped A-team tour, WIPA was very much
against the tour taking place on both security and moral grounds.
But since then.Dinanath Ramnarine, WIPA's chief ex-
ecutive, has been invited onto the WICB board and so be

If he went down the latter route then he would possibly be
in a situation where he was wearing a WIPA hat to advise his
players not to tour while being part of a board that was insist-
ing they should.
If it does proceed then it is likely thst the revised tour
will include two ~four-day matches agailist a gall-strength
Zimbabwe side as well as five ODIs. (Eurosporyt)

TRINIDAD and Tobago over-
came moments of tremendous
pressure to prevail over Wind-
ward Islands and lifted the
coveted KFC Cup in Febrn-
ary last with a sensational
five-run -victory.
No doubt the guys from the
Twin-island Republic will be
very anxious to retain the Cup
for a second consecutive year
and seek their ninth title at this
level since the introduction of
the competition in 1976.
They will be competing
against a confident and in-
spired Jamaica team at the
3Ws Oval at Cave Hill Bar-
bados in the final from 13:45
h today.
Notably it will be the first
time a regionat~cricket final will
be played under lights.
And when they flick the
switch, a fascinating contest is
expected to unfold in this 50-
over final.
Trinidad &Tobago advanced
to the final courtesy of a no-
contest against semi-finalists
Barbados owing to heavy rain
and soggy outfield on Friday.
Jamaica have certainly
missed the taste of regional
championship since 1999 and
will be hungry to have the
honour in lifting the Cup on this

occasion. after beingf in the wvil-
derness for the panSt four years.
The Chris Gayle-led team
caln be a Inutjor force to1 be reck-
oned with because of their un-
beaten ruln in the precliminary
rounds and triumph over
Guyana in the first semi-final.

batting responsibility,
The bowling will obviously
centre on7 the W~est Indies duo
of Daren Powell and Jerome

livered with precision, accuracy
and pace. They can expect solid
support from left-arm medium
pacer Nash, who had a miserly
spell of 10-2-11-1 against Bar-
bados int their final preliminary
round in Guyana. and will all be
eagerly looking to replicate their
excellent form.

high due to a freedom to cre-
ate, publicise, and consume
such literature).
The Avant-garde creative
~ 6itartist serves this social purpose
by ignoring preconceived meth-
ods of making creative literature
aind visual art, devising creative
methods of delving into the
mind without any interest in
following familiar programised
conventional forms of how a
bork of art should be mlade-
Fresh attitudes and approaches
are achieved by a style of writ-
ing which can make a simple
f~opic feel and become new to
readeis, spectators, etc. This' is
what occurs in Mittelholtzer's

societies -( early Gu ~ana novels: THE EYE

ROOM; and
TUMATUMARI, do the same.
How? For example. THE EYE
cause the narrator of the novel
is writing entries in a journal.
giving dates and years when
certain experiences occurred to
him in Guyana, he is forced to
look back into himself truth-
fully, since writing a journal is
a private activity, revealing to
uls all hris fears, misguidances,
feelings, observances, etc; quali-
ties which each of us also pos-
sess, but usually never- look at
closely. In one scene from THE
the narrator, as a boy, admits
being always curious to know
how deep and dangerous the old
East Street canal was, so he
pushes his friend as they are
playing into it, ending up hav-
ing to help him out. The use of
dangerous acts to test one's
theories is a defect, an aberra-
tion in the human character
which Harris alerts us to in this
scene. This same penetrative
and revelation of our defective
human character is explor-ed in
various avant-garde styles of
writing Harris uses in his other
novels mentioned her~e.
Obviously Guyanese avant-
garde creative writing takes its

place alongside other interna-
rional avant-garde: writing. espe-
cially f'rom Latin America and
Europe. France in particular.
where the 18th century French
Revolution introduced the
cr-edo:" Liber-ty, Equality. Fra-
ternity, Democracy". an idea
which Guyana inherited since
that historic year 1781 during
which pre-Revolutionary
France ruled Guyana. The idea
of "Liberty. Equality, Frater-
nity. Delmocracy" is not simply
a political slogan, but a personal
code of human conduct which
French society bequeathed to
Guyanese, who know their
nation's history, since it was
conceived in 1789. How doers
this credo wor-k on the level of
creative literature? Albert
Camus, one of the greatest 20th
century French/Algerian avant-
garde existential writers, in one
of his brilliant short novels,
THE FALL, lets a governmen-
tal official tell us of his own fail-
ure of character, his corruption,
-etc, via a brilliant style of quirky
first person narration that holds
our attention to the end. An-
other 20thy century French
writer, Alain Robbe-Grillet. cer-
tainly one of the most original
and influential avant-garde cre-
ative writers to ever come
along, a botanist who worked
for years in the French Carib-
bean and Africa, wrote one' of
literature's most stunning nov-
cls,. EALOUSY, in which aUl we
read is really seen through the
eyes of` an obser-vant but jealous
perSon .so thalt what seems true
to him and uls is only a biased
viewpoint. especially since the
person telling/writing the novel

the first tr-uly~ gifted Guyancese
avant-garde artist to excel at

ing; to write fiction in a dis-
tinctly r~elaxed visual style, and
to paint in a relaxed but
flambouyant figurativle manner

Williams was no aloof intellec-
tual. but a scholarly Afr-o-
Guyianese beatnik or bohemian
ar-tist. However, when Denis
Williams joined the Burnham
Socialist regime in the early
1970's as a cultural organizer,
the position entailed writing
ideological government bro-
chures and exhibition catalogues
etc. but these cultural theories
would never match the brilliance

and originality of Williams' two
outstanding avant-garde novels:
Neither of Williamns' two
novels is set in Guyana.
in the African Sudan, and
in Wales, UK. But in great art
it is not where the art is set,
or what it intends to tell us,
that proves its greatness; liut
how it is written, how it is
painted, sculpted, filmed, etc.
The novels of Mittelholtzer
and Harris are not great be-
cause they are set in Guyana,
but great due to how they are
written, how they write about '
Guyana; they are not great
simply because of their sto.
ries, but how their stories are
written. Williams' OTHER
LEOPARDS, published by one
of Britain's best publishers of
fresh outstandhrinnew creative
writing, New Authors LTD, is
a lesson in sharp, concise, ef-
fective prose which comes
from the mind of the narrator,
an Afro-Guyanese given the
non-Western name Lobo by
his little sister since they
were children, who ends up in
the Sudan as a masterful
archaeological draughtsman
assisting the systematic and
obsessed English archaeolo-
gist,. Hughie.Williams cley-
erly reveals in brilliant short
staccato sentences the schizo-
phrenic mentality that devel-
ops in the narrator's quest to
become an African reuniting,
or reconnecting with his an-
cestral identity, when in fact
he is really a G~uyanese long-
ing for his South American
Neither the narrator, Liondl
F~road, alias Lobo~or his white
boss Hughie, are true heroes in
the novel. Lionel/Lobo resents
Hughie's systematic efficiency,
feeling he could never be like
that. and feels inferior- always
trying to impress him with his
skills. Hughie on the other hand
is too condescending, patroniz-
ing, and suspicious of his
assistant's motives. Intecrest-
ingly the only real heroes Will-
iams subtly gives us in the novel
are to beautiful women, the fi-
ery voluptuous Sudanese girl,
Eve, and the sensual and syng-
pathetic Welsh girl Catherine.
Hughie's secretary .Both of
women are estranged
from their cultural and fam-
ily backgrounds which im-
pose upon their personal
lives. How Wiliams writes is
uncompromisingly truthful
and penetrating into the
narrator's mentality, as when
Lionel/Lobo finally stabs
Hughie with a screwdriver
then runs into the desert,
stripping naked, caking him-
self in mud, determined fi-
nally to be a non-Westernised
tribesman like his ancestors,
so that he remains outside of
Hughie's systematic Western
attitudes. It is here that Wil-
liams brilliantly gives us a


personal model of many
Third World nations' con-
fused quest to appear de-colo-
nized and non-European, or
even defines himself as "mu-
latto", as though the term
means someone with mixed-
up feelings, or forever unde-
cided about something, when
infact it simply means some-
one of mixed race,black and
white to be exact. Nothing
Like Robbe-Grillet's master-
ful avant-garde novel, JEAL-
OUSY, written through the eyes
of a jealous person, OTHER
LEOPARDS is also a master-
piece of avant-garde writing
written from the defective view-
point of the narrator. Such writ-
ing by allowing us toexperience
an imbalanced viewpoint (not
because someone is writing or
'telling their story it means they
.are a God-like authority on
truth, reason,ctc) frees us to see
what is unproductive and sulb-
sequently negative. What then
is positive about this novel? It
is its avant-garde writing on the
whole, its style which liberates
us to wards the direction of
truth. It is the avant-garde work
of art which is positive, not its
specific character-s within.
Williams' second novel
set inl Wales, and wr-itten f'romt
.the viewpoint of several char-ac-
ter-s with different viewpoints
on' the same topic spanning a
twenty-four hour pelirlio to me
is one of the best examlples of`
GCuyanese curative wrliting un-
matchedl by any Guyanelse nov-
elist who came later. Her-e Will-
iams combines all his powers
and skill as both creative wr~iter
And visual artist to bear on
scenes influenced by timne flow-
ing, by sounds passing thr-oughl
the mind, and fascinating visual
descriptions. This is creative
writing at its best, and siginifi-
cantly this novel was pulblished
by the famous Calder & Boyars.
Britain's outstanding publishers

avant-garde writer-s like Robbe-
grillet, Samuel Beckett, Mar-

This is how the novel be-

Out of his first effort. his fervor for writing grew stronger de-
spite bits of successes and daunting failures. From the interior of
Guyana, he moved to the Hindu College, on the East Coast of
Demerara, where 'within three months I completed another long
poem. The Stream of Red Tears; then I started writing my first
novel, The Blossoms of Love. My long poem won a Certificate of
Excellence at Guyfesta. a Guyanese festival of creative arts. but
my novel had received more than thirty rejection slips: it was never
Encouraged by an actor, Godfrey Rocke, Bissundayl turned his
attention to writing plays. After some minor successes at the com-
munity level, he got a major breakthrough. The Trick and The
Raajah was staged at the Theatre Guild in Georgetown. The fol-
lowing year the play, From Ganges to Demerary, was accepted at
York University, Toronto. This opened many doors to him, region-
ally and internationally.
But back on the local scene, he was to experiment with drama,
how to get it to the people. He successfully staged many 'dinner
& street theatre' events which included his play like Mad No Hell,
I is a Jumbic, The Jaguar and The Flute, and Migrant Error.
Always experimenting, he turned to fiction writing but
found he needed to devote more time to a novel. No problem;
he resigned his job at the National Insurance Scheme. But
this move led down to road to abject poverty; living on the
streets. His contemporary and fellow writer, Doodnauth Singh,
said, 'I can remember.the times he slept on a stall at Boarda
Market although he was a Literary Editor for one of our weekly
newspapers. He wrote Labaria Puraan spending, many days at
the St. George's Cathedral, eating little of nothing for days'.
But then it was from the bottommost to the uttermost. In 1996,
lo and behold, he had to choose between a fellowship in creative
writing at Miami University and the Vera Rubin Residency Award

at Yaddo. Saratoga Springs. He went down the Yaddo road, com-
pleting his MFA in 2003. Then he did a Ph. D. degree in !nterdisci-
plinary Studies at Union Institute & University, Ohio.
At the investiture ceremony, Churaumanie Bissundyal re-
corded his feeling thus, 'MVy moment of investiture met me in
a world of stupor, yet I was aware of everything: my brothers
snapping cameras at me, the audience applauding, music blar-
ing, the rising fever of excitement. When Dr. Larry Preston
dropped the doctoral hood around me, I remembered at once
myl struggle and pains ...to reach where I am today. Some-
times I thought I was riding a horse to reach the moon'.

In order to get to his Ph. D. investiture ceremony,
Churaumanie Bissandyal made an overland trip covering some
700 miles in 11 hours (first leg of a round trip made up of
1400 miles and 22 hours). The trip from New York to Ohio
was made in a mini van driven in turn by friends. This is how
he described that first leg of the trip which started on a Sat-
urday morning at 1 a.m..
'At night, sandwiched between opaque, lilac heavens and phos-
phorescent, galloping road signs, I fell into a reverie of our travel-
ling in a celestial chariot to a pilgrimage where angels and deities
have chosen to bestow benedictions upon humans achieving the best
with humility, hard work, perseverance, pains, gratitude and excel-
lence. In daylight, I felt the ecstasy of tunnels through mountains,
sunshine washmng rocky barrens, the golden hue of corn and wheat
fields, and of brilliant, rich towns granting mercies to pastoral shan
ties shrouded by jungle or rocks'.
That journey started more than half a century ago in the
'Cinderella County' where he spent his formative days on Leguan,
a green windswept island at the mouth of the Essequibo River, Brite
ish Guiana.
As in the story of Cinderella, Bissundyal went to the ball but
couldn't stay all night for the festivity. It's the story of his life -
so near yet so far away. On the day of his investiture, he declar-ed,
'1 sat in stunned silence, waiting, torn in an ambivalence between
weeping and laughing, aware that I was far away frIom everything
yet so near. It occurred to me in floods and flashes that my anxi-
cties of classrooms, introspection, books, seminars, peer days, re-
search, essays, travelling, organization, and doctoral meetings were
yielding for the first time to a rich savour of relief and serenity'.
After completing his formal education, Bissundyal was sent
(city positions were reserved) to teach at Good Shepherd Anglican
School, a missionary school deep in the hinterland of the countr-y.
It was a blessing in disguise for he was charmed by the innocence
of the indigenous Amerindians, their customs. the vir~ginity of the
flora and fauna, by purity of the waterways which~ in tur~n occa-
sioned the Muse to visit him. It was the starlt of a lengthy, ver-sa-
tile aund prolific writing career,. a career still blooming. Recalling that

FE SS no

By Norman Faria

When I lived in Toronto in
the 1970s, I worked part time
as a taxi driver to help pay my
tuition and other bills.One
night I jumped out of the car
to escape an armed robber.
Another time, I ended up be-
ing taken to a police station
for buying a bottle of whiskey
for a passenger,
Most times it was long
hours of driving for little pay
but there were also rewarding
I got the job as a cabbie (as
Canadians refer to a taxi driver)
in 1969. The hours worked out
well. Actually the night shift ran
from 1630 (4.30 pm) to ofte or
The morning.Friday and
Saturday nights were the real

money earners. Then you drove
12 hours per shift to catch the
party goers, night outers, bar
crawlers and general weekend
crowd, including shoppers.
I worked for several of the
city's cab firms but stayed the
longest with Diamond (it had a
diamond shaped plastic light on
the roof and the cars were
painted black and red. I also had
stint with Metro Cabs
(painted black and white). There
was a Yellow Cab company,
like in New York, but I never
drove with them.
Toronto's streets are well-
laid out and every house must
have a number, even on one side
and uneven on the other. There
is a guide book to find the loca-
tions and most passengers
would tell you the quickest way
if you didn't know. When I

started, I had to take a written
Now, 30 years later, I un-
derstand there is a refresher
course every three years,
The payment system for
the drivers was simple. You had
two choices. One was the meter
arrangement, whereby you
would give half of all monies
collected from the passengers
(popularly called "fares") to the
owner of the car who usually
had a whole fleet of them. Or
you could rent, or lease, the car
for the night at an arranged
price. When I got out in 1979
to return to the Caribbean, ev-
erybody was leasing the cars.
The reason for the shift to
renting was again simple.
By law, every time a fare
got into the taxi and the trip
commenced, you had to start the

meter (there was a little flag
shaped metal part sticking out
from it above the dashboard
where the roving inspector from
the Licensing Conunission could
see it). The meter was also con-
nected to the light on the roof
(When the meter was on the
light would go off).
Problem is, because of the
low pay, some drivers would
sometimes "forget" to put on
the meter and work out an ar-
rangement with the passenger.
When the meter readings were
checked at the end of the shift
back at the garage, those mon-
ies would not be recorded but
would go into the drivers' pock-
ets. Hence the shift by owners
to full leasing.
Taxi drivers got into a lot
of accidents and other diffi-
culties. It resembled the
mini-bus culture in Guyana
and Barbados in some ways.
The more passengers you
carried in your shift, the
more money you got. You
therefore found drivers
breaking all types of regula-
tions like making U-turits on
major thoroughfares to get to
a passenger on the other side
of the road. I made a few of
those turns myself.
The cabs had two-way ra-
dios connected to a central des-
patching office. They crackled
all the time, sending out loca-
tions for drivers nearest to

them. Sometimes drivers
booked way off location and got
tied up in traffic. It was a hustle.
The system encouraged drivers
to compete for passengers.
And that is why it took a
long time for them to get to-
gether and form some sort of
representative body to fight for
their rights. I was part time ,
though I also had other jobs in
between over nearly a ten year
But for full time drivers,
they had few benefits, includ-
ing retirement pensions or

holiday pay. By law, drivers
were "self employed". The
owners, wiho were well
organised in their Associa-
tion were seemingly making
all the money and security. I
must relate however that I
found Mr.Bell, the owner of
the Diamond cars at the ga-
rage out of which I drove, an
unusually considerate and
understanding person,
though facing the limitations
of the system.
In 1970, I got involved with
the "Taxi Workers Committee
for Organised Representation"
group. We tried to get the fel-
lows mnto a structured organised
positit n to rih for reforms W

from the Committee, I remem-

Coalition of Concerned Taxi
Drivers. The advocacy group
has mobilized drivers around is-
sues such as limousine drivers

and in city limits generally (The
Coalition feels this business
should go to the cabs). The
group was also involved in the
protest activity by 1500 driv-
ers on September 26th which

every month, with the start

This was last month. This month another new mother in my department
took the actual start day completely off to take hecr daughter- to the doctor, for- a checkup and
shots. She was allowed to do this by our- boss.
Because of her denial for my hour's early leave. I had to reschedule mny daughter making her
two months late for this checkup and shots. This seems to be a double standard, and I am unsure
how to approach this issue.


Millie, a few years ago primatologists Frans de Waal and Sarah Brosnan reported an
experiment they did with capuchin monkeys. Capuchins like cucumbers but love grapes.
These capuchins were trained to exchange pebbles for food, and when one monkey got a
grape for a pebble, while another got cucumber, the second monkey was miffed. That mon-
key might throw the cucumber away or refuse to pay a pebble for it.
de Waal observed that we are taught to believe fairness is an idea introduced by wise men
"after ponder~ing right, wrong, and our place in the cosmos." Actulally. 1he idea mnay be wiredl into
our- genes. That's why you feel angr-y, insulted, andl embarrassed.
The question is, what to do about it? The standard advice says communication is the key.
Don't get em~otional, document what happened, and pick an oppor~tune time to discuss this with
your' boss. But if you felt youI could tallk to yourI boss. or. iif your companlly ha~d fir~m prIocedure.Cs,
you would no~t be writing.
Herec's th, problem. Shove the idea of fair- plaly into the face of someone who does not play
falir. and it icould backfire. Whistlebloweers don't usually get r-ewar-ded. They get sacked. A4nd
people who, hold grudlges remember- ever-y slight. everY roll of the eyecs. and cycry slow response
to, "I'm right aren't l?"
There ar~e only two good answers to unfair-ness in the workplace: rankL so high in the social
network you are protected, or- perform your job so wecll you are indispensable. You'd like to have
an hour--long bitchlest with your- girlfriend, dr-own your sorrows in chocolate cake, and then tell
yourl boss where to go. But you know that wonl I do auny goodl.
What1 will help is asking yourself the most bas~ic qluestions. Why dtid someone get a day' off
whenCI you coulld not1 get off` even for- an hour-? Arec you held in low esteem the~re? Arec the rules

Ma substance
called fluoride. Toothpaste
manufacturers prominently
include the effects of fluoride
on the teeth in their
advertisements. But while
fluoride contained in
common toothpastes have
some cavity prevention
characteristics, there have
been recent advances in this
respect which prove to be
more efficient.
Fluoride has primarily been
utilized as an anti caries agent.

Fluoridated toothpastes are
probably the most commonly
used method of' caries
prevention and havec been cited
as one of the central factors
associated with world wide
decrease in caries prevalence.
The most commonly used
tluoride compounds arIe sodium
monofluorophosphate (MFP).
We who work in the Dental
Health Services of the Ministry
of Health utilize fluoridated
mouth-rinse in our school
Fluoride combines with a
mineral compound on the
surface of the teeth to for-m

fluoropatite which is
extremely resistant to the
corrosive action of the acids
produced in dental plaque.
The fluoride now being used
primarily reduces the
solubility of the enamel. But
this is clearly not enough to
ensure adequate oral health,
Extensive research has
demonstrated that a new
compound known as amine
fluoride combined with
stannous fluoride is superior
to compounds in most
toothpaste. It was shown that
stannous fluoride acts as an
antimicrobial agent which

not only slows down the
process of tooth decay but
also possesses an anti plaque,
contributing to prevention of
gingivitis. In effect, here is a
substance which promotes
and maintains the integrity
of the gums apart from the
When the experiment was
conducted the objectives

Justice Kenneth Stoby
(who later became Chancellor of
the Judiciary) had granted judg-

September 20, 1954, following
a three-day hearing in the mat-
ter of the estate of Kaulessar,
The plaintiff, litu, the
brother of the deceased, sought
to propound a will dated 31st
March, 1950, under which he
was appointed executor, and
claimed that a will dated 17th
November, 1950, under which
the defendant was named execu-
trix was not the true last.will
and testament of the deceased.
According to the facts of
the case, the testator had re-
garded the defendant as his
wife for a long number of
years and ivas alleged to have
made a small bequest to her
in the will of March 1950
which was not produced as it
was said to have been de-

the plaintiff, the judge noted
that the defendant had lodged in
the Supreme Court Registry a
will dated the 17th November
1950, which she alleged was the
last will and testament of
A caveat (warning) was en
tered by the plaintiff, but no
appearance was entered to the
warning. The caveat was cleared
off at the- expiration of six
months. The normal course
which an action of this kind
should take was not followed,
Justice Stoby had said as he
criticized the way ill which the

ter six months as the caveator
did not enter an appearance to
the warning. .
According to the judge, for
some reason not clear from the
evidence, probate of the will
was delayed and on the tl th

dated 17th November, 1950,

appearance to the writ of sum-

statement of claim and included
for the first time an allegation
that the deceased was totally

The defendant, the judge
said, did not press for particu-
lars of either the alleged incapac-
ity or undue influence, but .was
content to traverse the allega-
tions in the statement of claim

and counterclaim for probate of
the later will.
The result of the omission
to ask for .particulars was that
the defendant had no knowledge
of the nature of the conduct al-
leged by the plaintiff to amount
to undue influence, nor of the
substance of the case intended
to be relied on for proof of in-

As in Guyanla. taxi drivers risk their hve's on the job. Dur-ing my timel. there.C wereI` 1nl't n
Securllity camleras in the cabs, but these have been now installed because of' several mnurders of
driver-s in last two dec~des. When I drove, people would sit in front with the drivers: Conversa-
tions were pleasant and even the slightly inebriated had a word for you --though sometimes you
had to clean up after them.
Even the women chatted and, in those carefree pre-AIDS days as a young bachelor. things
clicked and you even went out with a few of them.
I got taken' to the police station (#52 Division then located at University and College)
when I' went into a Liquor Control -Board outlet to buy a bottle of whiskey for an elderly
man- who had flagged-me down. I had just started driving and I didn't know it was frowned
upon by. the- police under the province's strict liquor regulations.
Apparently the m~an~ had been previously refused service at the outlet. The cops were wait-
ing outside mn an unmarked car. They had a job to do but soon told.me to be on my way without .
charge. I can t reinember what. became of the whiskey.
The time I got held up-was when a passenger in the front seat held his hand under
his coat and indicated he had a gun. He wanted to go to Hamiliori, a town about a. hun-
dred miles west on Highwvay 4011. Shortly after getting on the highway, I made an excuse
that something was wrong with the front tyre. I stopped, got out and bolted. An hour later
I went back agnd he was gone.
Most drivers didn't report such things to the police (1 didn't) It rneant lost earnings for the
night. You also le'arnt toavo~id falling for the trick when a fare would try and go into an apart-

double check their pockets).

.don Lightfddit (1 had been to one of his concerts at Massey Halland, still, have one qf'his LPs),
and tle.'"People's Poet" from Newfotindland province, Milton Acorn.
All in all, I don't have any regrets about taxi driving in.CIoronto. It was sometimes stressful,
especially in the beginning. You listened to the radio for locations, panned the sidewalks for
pickups, all the while keeping an eye out for other drivers crashing into you. For a year, that was
the only time I smoked (Players was iny brand). .
Good sense prevailed but then I read somewhere that driving around Toronto, and its environs
all day, with all its exhaust fumes and general pollution, was the equivalent of smoking a pack and
half of tar, carbon and other unhealthy substances.
You could be isolated, some would say almost a voyeur, as you hustled'around on your
own. But you still interacted with people. I still remember my working and -studying days
among the kindhearted and generally good Canadian people.

reason for not making a will in
this case is because I formed the
opinion that the physical and
mental state of the patient was
such as to impair the clarity of
his thinking,
"Congestion of the apices
of both lungs is more often than
not the most fatal of all the con-
ditions' which affect the lung.
An apical infection seems to
have a greater impairment of the

would~ be loathe to offer argu-
ment which might entail oppo-
sition, because of physical em-
barrassment" the doctor is re-
;ported to have said according to
the judgment of Justice Stoby.
Despite the doctor's testi-
mony and the evidence of wit-
nesses for the plaintiff, the
Court` rejected the evidence
of the plaintiff and held that
there was no undue .influ-
ence on the part of he-defen-

The court concluded that
there was nb will of IMarch
1950 in existence and the cir-
cumstances surrounding the ex-
istence of the November will
must be viewed in that light.
Justice Stoby after taking
all th~e circumstances into
consideration added, "Since
there is no evidence Of fraud,
the plaintiff must persuade
me that there was coercion on
the part of the defendant if
the will in her favour is to be
set aside.
"When a will is; made by a
person in poor health, shortly
before his death and in the pres-
ence of the beneficiary I am pre-
pared to hold that the Court's;
Svigilance and suspicion ought to
be excited. :
"This does not mean that a
man, conscious of impending

"It'is- in the normal course
of nature for a minn to wish to
leave his wife or the woman he

the ravages of poverty. and its
consequent suffering.
"fBut when he has not

then I apprehend. it is the
Court's duty to scrutinize
the evidence' carefully to en-
sure -that the testator was not
coerced into an act of which
he would have i-esisted had

Justice Stoby had said, before
awarding judgment to the de-
fendant wife, with costs.

Until now I had looked on the valley as my gravee, for I had seen no possibility of
leaving it alive, but now I began to devise a means of escape. I started to pick up all
the largest diamonds I could find, and stored them in the leather bag which had pre- .
viously held my provisions. This I tied securely to my belt. Then I found a large piece
of meat which I had fastened to my back with my turban which I had unwound. I
lay down upon my face and awaited the' coming of the eagles. Soon I heard the
flapping of their mighty wings above me, and felt one of them seize the meat and
me with it, and rise towards his nest, into which he dropped me. The watching mer-
chants cried out, scarilig away the bird, and their aritazement was great when they
discovered me in the nest, upon their arrival there to collect jewels, as usual.

Choose the correct answer

(Special feature by the
Commonwealth Youth

Young people in the Carib-
bean and their peers through-
out the Commonwealth now
have an enhanced opportu-
nity of being fully empowered
politically, socially and eco-
nomically as governments
and youth development

stakeholders seek to embrace
a new road map for youth de-
velopment published by the
Youth Affairs Division of the
Commonwealth Secretariat
entitled the, 'Plan of Action
for Youth Empowerment
The Plan of Action for
Youth Empowerment has been
developed following close con-
sultanion with Ministers of
Youth and young people them-

selves. It is a framework docu-
ment for governmental, inter-
governmental and civil society
action for, and with young
people in the Commonwealth.
The intention is that the
PAYE should take its place
alongside human rights instru-
ments, poverty reduction strat-
egy papers, national budgets
and other policy frameworks
relevant to young people aged
15-29 years. Since it was first

launched in the year 2000. its
specific contribution has been to
stimulate an assets-based ap-
proach to youth development
The publication of the Plan
of Action for Youth Empower-
ment at this time is even more
significant as the Common-
wealth Heads of Government
prepare for their meeting in
Uganda in November 2007 to
formulate strategies on a range
of development issues many of
which, impact on young people
profoundly and disproportion-
Commonwealth Secretary
General, Honourable Don
McKinnon, has reported that
Commonwealth estimates that
between the years 2000 and
2015, over one billion young
women and men would have en-
tered the labour force, and cur-
rently there are not one billion
new jobs waiting for them.
Mr McKinnon feels that
this raises formidable policy
questions such as whether there
is a clear relationship between
development planning and de-
mography in policy and prac-
tice. Questions also arise as to
whether there exists positive in-
terventions to reflect these de-

mographic trends. in training,
employment and education ac-
tivities and what should be the
positive measurable outcomes
of successfully engaging even a
fraction of these young people
in economic activity.
The Secretary recalled
that at their 1997 meeting in
Edinburgh, Commonwealth
Heads of Government en-
dorsed efforts to tackle this
policy agenda and conse-
quently endorsed the empow-
erment approach. According
to him, it was recognized that
"empowering young people
means creating and support-
ing the enabling conditions
under which young people
can act on their own behaf,
and on their own terms,
rather than at the direction of
others." (Commonwealth
Plan of action for Youth Em-
powerment to the year 2005)
The Commonwealth Plan of
Action was born, and subse-
quently approved by Com-
monwealth Youth Ministers
Meeting in Kuala Lumpur.
The Commonwealth Youth
Programme is seeking creative
ways to make the PAYE the
main reference tool for Heads of

Youth Departments; to make it
a bigger part of the work of the
Regional Youth Caucuses in
terms of awareness raising and
measuring progress; more acces-
sible to everyone engaged in
youth development; and to be
able to document and dissemi-
nate good practices in its imple-
mentation. There are enormous
resource implications in trying
to meet these aims. We are chal-
lenged to seek out firm alliances
with existing and new develop-
ment partners because our finan-
cial allocations have not in-
creased over the last thirty
The Plan of Action for
Youth Empowerment puts for-
ward 13 Action Points for Gov-
ernments, youth development
stake holders and the young
people themselves. These Ac-
tion Points are:

Develop and implement
measures to promote the
economic enfranchisement
of young people

IN Greek mythology, Chimera is a monstrbus creature-of
r- -.Lycia in Asia Minor, made of the parts of multiple animals.
It is the characteristics of the creature its sheer strength
extraordinaire Donna Ramsammy-James.
It is interesting to note that the Chimera bears resemblance
to Yali of Hindu mythology, which spells Qf catlike grace. We
;i mention this because Ramsammy-James' trademark has always
r, i-: ~ -~uprr;been the continental influences, particularly those of Asia sind
I~ Africa, and that of the Caribbean.
s : Today, at her Century Palm Gardens home in the city, she
~~i unveils the Chimera? collection. A select audience will see 1 i-
pieces of elegant ladies and men's wear.
This is the ninth collection under her "Shape 2000" banner.
~~' "The audience at her premieres has always grumble about want-
ing more, and the collection moves so quick~ly.
"I don't like shows that drag on, people get bored," she says.

And whto says~she will change. i
-"Chimera is a mirage; a glistening, slithering illusion,"
she says.
The collection keeps some of the signature lines and fabric
of the Shape collection, but moves intd other natural materials
such as jute and calico. The collection diso features wide, rinore
fluid sonlietimes voluminous cuts, which again is a shjft in
earlier thernes and lines of the Shapeicollection. :
The 2 08 Collection features keredents which compledilent
the traditional ruffles, pleats and uneven hemlines of recent years,
in fav;our of full "skirty" designs.
Ramsammy-lames continues td' cater for an elite clietitele.
She keeps in mind that many warit to wear something' that is
Western, but yet, something that has a heavy ethnic influence.
She has taken the vibrancy of the colours of the Caribbean,
and interwoven this with, as is herittademark line, "the softness
of Asia.and the depth of Africa". Shieloves working with colours,

as is quite evident in the new collet tio i.
Ramsammy-James has been a designer for 25 years, and her
travels around the world have formed the essence of her designs.
When she lived in Kenya, access to leather from places like
Turkey and India saw her creating not. only clothing, but belts
and other accessories.
SWhen she left Kenya, the desired leather was no longer avail-
able, even though back home she tried the nkarket over in
neighboring Brazil.
i n recent years, she was forced, albeit not grudgingly, into
fabric painting and her earlier experience as an artist came in
handy. Every piece in her collection is made and h-and-finished
in Guyana.
She is not into mass production, ensuring the every piece
she designs is unique no cut, artwork, or colour is replicated!
It has helped her to build a dependable clientele here,
in Florida, Washington, London, Barbados, andl Anguilla.

Environmentalist Leaders
from the Commonwealth
Foundation visited Iwokrama
in the heart of Guyana after
attending the Common-
wealth Finance Ministers
Meeting ini Georgetown. The
representatives from Ghana,
Trinidad, tAustralia, Malaysia
and Enghfnd were thrilled to
witness (Sufana's successful

sustainable trollicl forest
management which' has been
funded 'by the Common-
wealth.and other donors for
more than' ten years.
The twokrama Forest \vas
offered to the Commonwealth:at
a Heads of Government Meet-
ing in 1989just prior to the Rio
Summit on Sustainable Devel-
opment. Since then, the Com-
monweath` in collaboration with
the G~overniment of Guyana has
used the one million acre forest
reserve to ~experiment and de-

forest conservation and sustain-
able use that provides ecologi-
carl, social and econoniic benefits
to locail,,national and interna-
tional communities.

"We always want sustain-
able development but it has
never been practiced like it has
been here," said George Awundi
from Friends of the Earth,
Ghana. "'Capacity building, sus-
tainable resource management,
community outreach: they have
all corne together at Iwokrama."
For the past -decade
Iwokrama has also been at the
~forefront of biodiversity, for-
estry and social research includ-
ing climate change. The Centre
is currently examining ways to
access economic incentives from
the voluntary carbon offset
market to pay for: sustainable
forest management and conser-
vation of standing forests which
are currently excluded under the
Kyoto Protocol. 1
During their v~iit to the
Iwokrama forest, the Common-
wealth representatives',went on
an invigorating hike up Turtle
Mountain, a popular tourist at-
traction marketed by
Iwokrama's tourism shr\?ices,
that stands close tol060()feet
above the forest (Toor. 1
Their guide was Paulette
Torres, an Iwokrama Ranger

who grew up in a small com-
munity just outside of the
Iwokrama protected area and
has worked for Iwokrama for
ten years. Besides giving her
guests a well rounded picture
of the forest eco-systems, she
highlighted the fact that com-
munity relationships are es-
sentially the core of
Iwokrama's businesses of
ecotourism, sustainable' tim-
ber harvesting, training and
intellectual property and ser-

to over 2000 species of higher
plants, 500 species of birds,
200 mammals, 420 fish,~ 150
reptiles and amphibians and rich
source of insect life including
exotic butterflies.
"Iwokrama is supposed to
be public, but it's kept secret
like a hidden jewel. Right here
is living proof .that the Com-
monwealth 'walked the talk' by
helping to preserve this intact
rainforest," said Nelcia Robinson

from the Caribbean Association
for Femmnist Research and Ac-
tion in Trinidad and Tobago.
Robinson was moved by
the systems and stories of co-
existence that she witnessed in
the rain forest from the Scream-
ing Piba's high pitched call that
functions as the jungles alarm
system to the forest seeds that
depend on the'Agouti rodent for
dispersal to ensure forest regen-
On the return boat ride
to the Field Station on the
E~sequibo River, the group
felt a common pride and con-
nection to the Iwokrama for-
est. They.decided that the rest
the Commonwealth Commu-
nity should be made niore
aware of the accomplish-

ments of Iwokrama.
"Understanding that
lwokrama is the largest conser-
vatioh project in the fifty three
Commonwealth states is a pow-
erful realization and it's also
something that can create
greater unity among us," said
Mark Collins, Director of the
Commonwealth Foundation.
"Anyone who visited Iwokrama
would feel the same way."
That same evening a work-
shop was hosted by communi-
cations expert Nithi Nesadurni
from the' Environmental Protec-
tion Society in Malaysia to de-
sign a communications plan on
how to better connect
Iwokrama with the Common-
wealth Community. .
The workshop highlighted

the fact that the
Commonwealth's financial in-
vestments in lwokrama has
produced a successful model
that all Commonwealth coun-
tries should be turning to and
using as a resource.
Collins also noted that
Iwokramna's successful ex-
periment in rain forest
sustainability and manage-
ment is vital in addressing
climate change today as de-
forestation is estimated to
contribute as much as 20% to
global carbon emissions.
Iwokrama's relatively intact
space is also an opportunity
in which to carry out research
on climate change measure-
ment, mitigation and adapta-

THE huge dome like
structures of overburden
earth from mined out bauxite
sites coupled with the barren
landscape and clouds of dust
puffing from the chimney are
probably regarded as the
main features of Linden and
a constant reminder of the
Town's main economic
activity Bauxite mining.
A Town filled with huge
potential for tourism and
untapped wealth, Linden has
slowly evolved from the label
'The Mining Town' to one of
more self sufficient service
oriented especially in the area of
food security.
As revealed after a visit to
one of the farms operated by
Linden Youth Development
Enterprise, one prime
agriculture venture in Canvas

the Demerara River especially

'When 1 first came to
Linden. I worked on a private
farm but af~ter learning about the
_President Youth Choice
Initiative from a friend Mr.
Brown who encouraged me to
apply. After we made our
application, money was
provided for the construction of
one poultry pen, provision of
fifteen hundred chicken and
feed. Initially we commenced
operations at Canvas City but
as the years rolled by and
business became more profitable
we expanded to West Watooka'
Mr. If ill with pride voiced
high praises for the assistance
his enterprise received from the
President's Youth Choice
Initiative but also the
opportunity to create
employment and provide fresh
agricultural produces for the
residents of Linden.
'The money gained after the
sale of our first batch of
chickens, we were able to create
employment for ourselves and
expand our farming activities to

provide a door to door ser~vice.
However. we want the concept
of Linden as a 'Mining' Town
which is dependent on other
areas for food to be removed.
We believe we can share with
other areas in Guyana. the
experience of providing quality
wholesome food.'
In coping with the
challenges of excessive poultry
production and modernization
of the agricultural sector. Mr.
ifill expresses his gratitude to
NARI for the opportunity to
implement the usage of new
technology and strategy of
'Due to the excessive
production of poultry and

'We pride our-selves in
providing fr1esh wholesome food
fo~r the residents of Linden. We
grow our foods using more pen
manure as fertilizer and reducing
the use of synthetic ferltilizers
and pesticides. We believe the
secret of quality foods with
long shelf life is the usage of pen
manure and makes waste
disposal from the chicken pen
easier for us thus increasing our
profit '
As a result of the huge
demand for produces from the
Linden Youth Development
Enterprise by residents of
Linden and other areas
efforts to further expand were
facilitated by the Linden
Farmers Association through
the clearing of twenty five
acres of lands in West
Watooka and Dalawala.

The United Nations.

and many others ar~e working to
achieve MDG 6. The'ir efforts
include working in the field.
conducting research. developing
techniques, mobilizing people
to support the goal and
providing financing to projects.
Through their work and
coordination, successful ways
to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS,
malaria and TB have been
developed and are improving in
efficiency and scope.
This year, the United
Nations Development
Programme (UNDP) in
Guyana, held a reception in
observance of United Nations

Adopted from the United
Nations websites:

Trhe name "United Nations",
coined by United States
President Franklin D.
Roosevelt, was first used in
the "Declaration by United
Nations" of I January, 1942,
during the Second World War,
when representatives of 26
nations pledged their
governments to continue
fighting together against the
Axis Powers.
In 1899, the first
International Peace Conference
was held in The Hague to
elaborate instruments for
settling crises peacefully,
preventing wars and codifying
rules of~warfare. It adopted the
Convention for the Pacific
Settlement of International
Disputes and established the
Permanent Court of Arbitration,

which began work in 1902.
~The forerunner of the
United Nations was the League
of Nations, an organization
conceived in similar
circumstances during the First
World War, and established in
1919 under the Treaty of
Versailles; "to promote
international cooperation and to
achieve peI: ce and security."
The international Labour
Organization wah also created
under the Trealty of Versailles as
an affiliated agency of the
League. The League of Nations
ceased its activities after failing
to prevent the Second World
In 1945, representatives of
50 countries met in San
Francisco at the United Nations
Conference on International

Organization to draw up the
United Nations Charter. Those
delegates deliberated on the
basis of proposals worked out
by the representatives of China,
the Soviet Union, the United
Kingdom and the United States
at Dumbarton Oaks, United
States, in August-October, 1944.
The ,Charter was signed on 26
J une, I945 by the
representatives of the 50
countries. Poland, which was
not represented 'at the
Conference, signed it later and
became one of the original 51
member states.
The United Nations
officially came into existence on
24 October- 1945, when the
Charter had been ratified by
China, France, the Soviet Union,
the United Kingdom, the United

States and a majority of other
signatories, hence. United
Nations Day is celebrated on 24
October each year.
This year's theme, "Global
Health: A Critical Component
to Development." focuses on
the Millennium Development
Goal 6(MDG 6). The MDG 6
seeks to combat HIVIAIDS,
malaria and other major diseases
by halting and beginning to
reverse the spread of these
epidemics. Goal 6 is vital to
development as the health of a
nation's citizens affects its
social, economic and political
Together, HIV/AIDS,
malaria and tuberculosis (TB)
kill more than six million
people a year. There is no, as
researchers call it, "magic

bullet" for fighting these
epidemics. In order to control
these deadly diseases, a
multifaceted approach must be
taken, which combines
education, prevention and
treatment strategies. This
includes teaching people how
each disease is transmitted, ways
to prevent transmitting or
contracting them,amd what to do.
if infection occurs.
One of .the greatest
challenges facing proven
prevention and treatment
strategies is making sure they are
reaching those most at risk. This
means not only making
prevention and treatment
programs physically accessible,
but ensuring that they are
affordable for the poor and that,
they are age, gender and culture

A Simple Story for Pleasure
Now, I don't want to say this hare was big -
that would be an understatement. He was huge,
gigantic, elephantine. My little brother, Johnny, and
I stared at that animal, and we were practically
"Nothing to say?" Billy Blackette asked smugly.
Finally, I found my voice: "I have something to
say, Billy Blackette. That animal is from another part
of the planet."
My friend laughed heartily. "Clementine you
are a caution! But this hare isn't from another planet.
He's a hybrid."
"What's a hybrid?" Johnny asked.
"HyBRID, Johnny. It means this old hare had an
unusual mammy and daddy and so he turned out even
more unusual himself. Would you like to hold him,
"Hold him?" I took a step back.
"I'd like to hold him, Billy Blackette!" Johnny ex-
claimed. "Can 1 please?"
Before I could protest, the "horrendous hybrid"
was sitting in my brother's arms and they both looked
as pleased as punch.
Meanwhile, I was starting to feel left out.
My sensitive pal noticed. "Clementine, he needs
a really good name. Think you can think one up?"
"Well," I said slowly, "I guess so. Of course, I'll
have to get to know him better first. So the name will
be appropriate.
"Of course," Billy Blackette agreed solemnly.
"Now why don't you start by taking him from Johnny
and holding him a little yourself?"
Very tentatively, I lifted him out of my brother's
arms. But I was nervous and made the hare nervous.
He dug his formidable claws into my arms. At that
point, I just about tossed him into the air, but Billy
Blackette got him.
Well, he is kind of heavyy" Billy Blackette offered
"Never mind that," I said. "He's the original

Lesson Point: In many cases, writers do look at
events in a larger context. They do it in the way you
may step back to see a picture you are drawing. The
whole idea is that you want to get a better look at your
handiwork; you want to get a better idea of the whole
scene or- scenery. You step back from your subject in
order to see it as part of a larger pattern.
It is so good to be conscious of what strategy
you are using. Keep up the good writing for your reader
to want more of you.
In the poem above the poet focuses upon his sub-
ject to give the reader a vivid picture of the last few
moments in a basketball game.

The Passage
No one was scared, from the Headmaster down, and
the child, moreover, was safe from any form of reprisal

"Look at it this way," Mr. Florion had said. "It is of
advantage to both pupil and teacher. If a child wants
to write about something which matters to him, he will
take some pamns to set it down as carefully and with as
much detail as possible; that must in some way improve
his written English in terms of spelling, construction, and
style. Week by week we are able, through his reviews,
to follow and observe his progress in such things. As
for the teachers, we soon get a pretty good idea what
the children think of us and whether or not we are get-
ting close to them.
It may sometimes be rather deflating to dis-
cover that a well-prepared lesson did not really
excite Johnny Smith 's interests, but, after all, the
lesson was intended to benefit Johnny Smith, not
his teacher; if it was uninteresting to him then the
teacher must thmnk again,
You will discover that these children are reason-
ably fair, even when they comment on us. If we are
careless about our clothing, manners, or person they will
soon notice it, and it would be pointless to be angry with
them for pointing such things out. Finally, from reviews,
the sensible teacher will observe the trend of individual
and collective interests and plan his work accordingly. "
On the first Friday of my association with the class
I was anxious to discover what sort of figure I cut in
front of them, and what kind of comment they would
make about me. I read through some of the reviews
at lunchtime, and must admit to a mixture of relief and

Responding to the extract

1. Tell, in about two sentences, a personal experi-
ence related to something in the passage.
2. Retell ONE experience when you made known
to your teacher exactly what you felt about something
that concerned both your teacher and you. [Think about
these aspects: Were you rude in saying what you said?
How did you feel afterwards? Was the occasion caught
on tape or camera? Did the head teacher and your par-
ents come in? Did the teacher understand and did he/
she thank you for revealing the true situation with you
in class? Did you think that you learned more in class
3. Respond to a character or episode event by writ-
ing what happened after you set your feelings free.
Make it as dramatic as you possibly can.

Hello students, -
Please come in. This is just the right time to be-
gin the search for what's bothering you in study
and to face it.
Suppose your problem is the reluctance to revise.
Well, let's get started. MZ~ak a list of what you have
got to do subject by subject. topic by sub-topic. Go over
the list and add labels to each to show your amount of
interest, understanding/kflnowledg~e. ease or difficulty, ur-
gency or usefulness. Decide to start immediately with
those most labeled. Remember it's never too early to
start revision. You can rev-ise until close to the exami-
nations. Enjoy this issue.
Love you.

The Poem

Foul Shot by Edwin A. Hoey

With two 60's stuck on the score board
And two seconds hanging on the clock,
The solemn boy in the centre of eyes,
Squeezed by silence,
Seeks out the line with his feet.
Sooths his hands along his uniform.
Gently drums the ball against the floor,
Then measures the waiting net,
Raises the ball on his right hand,
Balances it with his left, .
Calms it with fingertips,
And then through a stretching of stillness,
Nudges it upward.
The ball
Slides up and out,
Plays it coy,
Until every face begs with unsounding screams-----
And then
And then
And then
Right before ROAR-UP
Dives down and through.

Find out the following
1. In which lines does the writer set up the situa-
tion? What does the poet say?

2. Point out the line where the tension is most felt.
What is happening now?

3. How do you see the stillness?

4. What does the repetition of ""And then" provide
for the reader?

5. Is there any other circumstance hinted at beyond
the immediate incident? Support your response.

6. Some writers present an incident for its own sake
rather than for its significance in relation to other events.
What. then, do you think is the purpose of this poem?

As for expectations on the R-rated "Saw IV," some might
dismiss the franchise as "torture porn," adi ailing horror subgenre.
But the third sequel should easily top. $25 million, and possi-

It's worth noting that eaCh newr installment has opened more
strongly than its predecepsdr. T se frasichise kicked off during

Question: W~hy dolI need a TIfN if I already have an IRD numbhert

Answer: The TIN Act (No. 15 of 2006) amends; the income Tax Act
and therewith replaces the IRD number. Section 3 of the T'INZ Act
states "The taxpayer Identification Number means the Govana
Revenue Authority taxpayer identification number assigned by the
Revenue Authority to a taxpayer for the purpose of transacting
business witih the Authority under this Act."

'This means that the TIN not otnly identifies persons for the purposes
of Income Tax, but for ALL transactions they may have with thle
G;RA, whether at the Customs and Tradle Admninistration, L~icnce
Revenue Office, Internal Revenue or VAT' and Excise Decpartment as
well as any- Govetrnment Department, Public Corpor-ation and thle
Cen~ttral Bank.

The IRD number was only; valid fotr transactions conducted at the
I internal Reven ue arm ofthGRAC K.

TIhe TIN therefore prov-ides you with a vaidf tnumber- to transacrt
business wvithi the GR\annd the other agenrcies stated above.
\cfcordfingly, it is imtportantt thalt you ap~ply anid obtain yourt-r TN
