year's level with more than
700 robberies having taken
place up to May of this year.
The release said that the
private sector was calling on the
Government "notwithstanding
the statement made by the
Minister of Home Affairs, to
execute its mandate to ensure
the safety of our citizens."
Early last week, Home
Affairs Minister, Gail Teixeira
had stated that businesses

According to a release from
the private sector organisation,
it wfs not the function of
business community to shoulder
primary responsibility for
battling the crime wave because
the taxes businesses paid were
to help provide for the safety
and security of the citizenry.
"Neither our city nor State

release, "We are in a.state of
disorder and are near to

the PSC wants a meeting with

is prepared to work

The Opposition People's

(PNCR) has also joined in urging
all Guyanese to "take every
reasonable precaution to

safeguard their lives and
property" since "in the present
circumstances, the price for
personal safety can never be too
In a statement issued
yesterday, the PNCR said it
continues to place its
confidence in the Commissioner
of Police, Mr. Winston Felix and
"his hardworking men and
"We call on the.public to do
likewise. Despite whatever
misgivings we many have about
the performance of the force,
this is a battle they must win
on our behalf. On the other
hand, the Police Force must
make urgent efforts to win the
confidence and cooperation of
the public. As we have already
advocated, good community
relationships are an invaluable
component in intelligence
gathering and crime fighting.
Many citizens still harbour
serious doubts about confiding
information to the Police Force.
The Commissioner must
address these concerns," the
release stated.
In its release also issued on
August 19, the Guyana Police
Force said that it has been
"privy to the various concerns
expressed by the public and
more particularly the business
community. These concerns are
genuine and are fuelled by the
incidents of crime committed on
businesses for a period in July
and then after August 01."
In the release, the Force

called on the general public not
to be alarmed and assured that
it will redouble its efforts to the
prevent attacks-on businesses.
The GPF also promised the
deployment of more officers to
help combat crime. It also
acknowledged that some
members of the force may be in
collusion with criminals.
"The Force," noted the
document, "is satisfied that
some of the incidents may have
been staged with collusion of
current or former staff
members who may have
provided information,
sometimes unwittingly, which
led to the attacks."
The statement listed recent
efforts made by the GPF in
battling the spate of robberies:
"At least one gang has been
held and its members are
currently remanded to prison;
the one man who staged
robberies and was caught, has
been identified in four robberies
staged on businesses around the
town; some elements of a gang
involved in motorcycle
robberies have been caught and
two were shot dead. Some of
those caught were charged and
have been bailed. There are five
gang members from a certain
community who have been
identified and are currently being
sought. Gang members in six
other communities have also
been identified and are being
sought. Every effort is being
made to stem the tide of
robberies which has affected the

According to the release,
the murder rate so far has
decreased by eight per cent
compared to last year's figures
but robberies under arms with
firearms have increased by 50
per cent. There has been a five
per cent decrease in robberies
under arms using other
implements. The release also
noted that robbery with
violence has decreased by 43
per cent while larceny from the
person has been reduced by 44
per cent.
The release noted that "It
seems from the pattern that
there are several illegal firearms
in the country." It added that for
2005, 79 firearms have been
seized compared with fifty-nine
for 2004.
"There is no doubt that
there are illegal firearms in the
country and the police efforts
have been re-doubled to cope
with the situation," the Police
press release said.
The GPF called for the
support of the public in
stemming crime.

the release, "where bandits have

Golden Grove tragedy

Rumour of

affair may have

spurred killing

By Shauna Jemmott
THE relatives of a young
mother who was murdered al-
legedly by her fiance Friday
night said the man was abu-
sive, and had become increas-
ingly so last week, after he
had accused her of having an
The man, who resides in
the same district, killed 23-year-
old Roselyn Rodney, called
' 'Rosey', at her home at Lot 14
Golden Grove Public Road, East
Coast Demerara, and dealt their
eight-month-old daughter,
Analisa, a stab to her temple,
leaving the child hospitalized up
to late yesterday.
The girl's father, popularly
called German, said the man
was very abusive towards his
Speaking to the Sunday
Chronicle at his home yester-
day, the elderly man said his
wife had warned their second
daughter to quit the relationship
with the father of her two chil-
dren after he had become abu-
sive to her and disrespectful to
her family.
He recalled that on one oc-
casion, the man placed his
daughter's head between two
blocks in their yard and threat-
ened to kill her.
"He never talked to my
daughter properly. The boy say:
"Aye gyal... you lucky I didn't
walk with my gun, or you would

the man recalled.
The aged man said he
picked up a cutlass to come to
his daughter's rescue, but the
man had already fled the yard
by the time he had reached out-
side again.
"I couldn't stand and watch
he beat my daughter anymore
and not do anything about it,"
Rodney's father said.
The man wept intermit-
tently as he told the dreadful
story, and kept repeating that
his wife had always begged their
daughter to end the abusive re-
On Friday night, the al-

leged killer visited his fiance's
home sometime after 20:00 h
in a rage. The man reportedly
climbed the stairs leading to
the home's 1-shaped verandah
and opened the door. After he
reportedly stuck the knife in
his baby daughter's temple, he
then reached around Rodney's
mother, Pauline, who was at-
tempting to push him away,
and slashed the young woman.
According to reports, the
woman's mother watched in
horror as her child succumbed
just seconds after she was try-
ing to protect her from the man.
"We heard screams coming
from the home and then the girl's
children-father was seen running

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE August 21,2005.



F THE spate of daring armed robberies and brutal
violence and killings this past week reminded us how
challenging a task members of the police have on
their hands, there were also some very promising
indicators of a society moving forward in areas of
economic development, sports and culture. View them,
if you wish, as a blend of good and bad news.
The updates on progress for Guyana's
ultra-modern stadium for Cricket World Cup 2007, with
generous assistance from India, and the staging of
GuyExpo next month would certainly have been among
the positive features. Yes, during a week when the
criminals made systematic attacks on business
people, murdering one of them, injuring and robbing
others and their workers.
Home Affairs Minister Gail Teixeira, in

expressing her own concern about the evident targeting
of business people by the armed criminals, has called
for the business community to "beef up" their security.
She noted that President Bharrat Jagdeo
has already pledged government's assistance to
business owners in the form of duty-free concessions
for high technology surveillance equipment..
This, of course, should not mean that the
Guyana Police Force is being.excused in any way from
pursuing new approaches that the business people, as
well as the public at large, can come to appreciate.
For instance, in the form of higher visibility
of armed cops strategically stationed as well as on
frequent patrols and, generally, appearing to be much
more on the offensive, rather:than reacting to the
assaults from criminals.
The news.from Tourism, Industry and
Commerce Minister Manzoor Nadir of the very positive
and significant responses from major sectors of the
business community, including GT&T, GuyOil and.the
regional conglomerate, CLICO, for this year's trade and
investment project, GuyExpo, are all the more
encouraging for the message being conveyed of the
private sector's firm commitment as a.partner in the
country's social and economic progress.
The plans for GuyExpo offer some
innovative features that could give new meaning to the
concept of "pride in our industry" in addition to further
new approaches in the transformation of 'Main Street
In the field of culture and-:eitertainment,

Guyana continues to be an attraction for some. of the
Caribbean's leading performing artistes, with this
weekend's 'Summer Jam', scheduled for its opening
performances last night at cricket ground, Bourda.
The organizers have promised to make this
'Summer Jam' the biggest ever reggae festival in
Guyana. As wishing them success, and. patrons
maximum satisfaction, we are mindful of the need also
for maximum security.
It is good to know that 'GT Entertainment,
Inc.', whose official inauguration coincides with 'Surnmer
Jam' 2005, has made relevant arrangements, as
disclosed, to ensure protection of the cricket ground and
facilities at Bourda, as well as to complement the
services to be provided by the Guyana Police.Force.

THE LATEST development
inBarbados' 'cat-and-mouse'
game on a referendum to
determine whether the
country should shed its
monarchical clothing of
governance for that of a
constitutional republic, may
*well be known on Tuesday
when its parliament meets,
possibly for its final sitting,
before it goes on what is still
called 'summer recess'.
Now independent for
almost 39 years from British
colonial nile, and proudly
boasting a history as the third
oldest legislature in the
Americas, Barbados has been
revealing shifting
or contradictory positions on a
national referendum to pass
judgement on its intention to
part company with the Queen
of the United Kingdom as its
Head of State and move to
republican status with a
Barbadian as President.
Ironically, Prime
Minister Owen Arthur, the
political leader who has been
quite articulate in advancing the
case why a Barbadian should be
the country's Head of State,
instead of the Queen, is also the
one with a surprisingly
inconsistent record on whether
or not it is really necessary to
take the issue to a national
Now it is a 'yes'; then
comes a halting 'no' in changing
political scenarios.
It was back in 1993
when he replaced the retired
Henry Forde as leader of the
then opposition Barbados
Labour Party (BLP) that
Arthur, an economist by
profession and a rather astute
politician, spoke loudly in
favour of Barbados becoming a
Arthur returned to the
issue the following year when
he became Prime Minister with
a snap election that followed
the fall of the then Democratic
Labour Party administration as
a rent of an unprecedented

'no confidence' vote
against Prime Minister, Erskine
Sandiford, an educator and
political scientist.
What has been puzzling for
Arthur's supporters and opponents
is his vacillation since 1994, on the
holding ofa referendum to settle the
question of Barbados as a republic
with a non-Executive President.
One significant factor
that may have put a brake on his
pro-republican ambition at that
period was the result ofan

opinion poll, conducted for the
'Nation Publishing Company' in
1994, by the UWI political
scientist, Peter Wickham,
director of CADRES (Caribbean
Development Research Services).


That survey showed a
mere four per cent gap
between those favouring the
end of the monarchical system'
(38 percent) with 34 per cent
saying 'no' and a significant 28
per cent in the 'undecided'
In a country with an
historically strong bond with the
Queen and British traditions,
Arthur evidently felt it was too
uncertain a climate to move with
haste towards republican status
- even with a President with no
executive powers, as is currently
the case with a Barbadian
Governor General (Sir Clifford
Husbands) and Her Majesty the
Queen as titular Head of State.
It is more Arthur's on-
and-off position on a natiortatl;-
referendum, even after a high-

powered nine-member
Constitution Review
Commission, had come out in
favour of republican status -
without recommending the need
for a referendum -that has been
evoking a mixture of confusion,
cynicism and political hilarity in
some quarters.
The Constitution
Commission, headed by Sir
Henry Forde a former BLP
leader, Foreign Minister and
Attorney Gener~l,-iid i'icluding
ex-Attorney General and Foreign
Minister of a DLP
administration, Maurice King -
proposed a constitutional
republic with a non-Executive
President to be chosen by no less
than two thirds of the parliament
(House of Assembly and Senate).
This would be very much
in the fashion that Trinidad;-and
Tobago had done 19 years ago in
1976, or 14 years' -after
independence, the -43rd
anniversary of which it will be
marking at month end.
Since then, Dominica in
the Windward chain of Eastern
Caribbean states, ended its
colonial status in 1978 to
become the 'Independent
Republic of the Commonwealth
of Dominica', also with a non-
Executive President. ;::,
Dominica felt, with some
reservations, that there was really
no sound argument to retain the

therefore, boils down basically
to the modalities bf achieving

They have both been

opposition demands for a

both the governing PNP and .the
opposition Jamaica Labour Party
were at one in ending the
colonial-inherited pledge of
allegiance to a British monarch in
favour of "allegiance to Jamaica".
This could also be
achieved in Barbados with relevant
constitutional amendments.
Therefore, with his-
torical dependence on the Privy
Council already removed with
access now to the CCJ, and
should constitutional amend-
ments be forthcoming to clear
the way for the oath of allegiance
to Barbados to replace that to a
British monarch, question is:
hat really is the major compel-

ling reason for a referendum on
the move to republican status?
Whatever the depth
of lingering emotional ties to
the monarchical system, there
can hardly -be any
significant number of
Barbadians who, in 2005, al-
most 43 years after indepen-
dence, would vote to retain the
Queen as Head of State, in-i
stead of having a Barbadian
man or woman as President of
the Republic of Barbados.
If indeed, a referen-
dum must be held, on the con-
tention that it would be 'po-
litically correct' or the 'demo-
cratic thing' to do, then in the
view of some academics and
social commentators, perhaps

tm -s

the government and
opposition parties should
seriously consider widening the
net to include highly sensitive
social issues of wide interest
among the Barbadian people:
Such as, for
instance, introduction of
casino gambling; condoms
in prison and legalising of
prostitution. Of course,
since most referenda are
focused on one, and no
more than two major
questions, this idea may be
a non-starter. In the
meantime, the Barbadian
people await the latest
official announcement on
legislative preparedness
for a national referendum.

- 1905

By Citizen Kampta Karran
Continued from last week)
THE white (European) mi-
nority, planter, administra-
tive, and mercantile classes
dominated the Guianese so-
ciety. Their monopoly of mili-
tary, political and economic
powers facilitated the subju-
gation of the majority races.
The belief in the superiority
of the white race and the in-
feriority of all other races
was the ideological justifica-
tion for their systematic
programme of repression.
Commenting on white rac-
ism, H. V. P. Bronkhurst, a
Methodist missionary who
was born in Ceylon [present
day Sri Lanka] of a Dutch fa-
ther and an Indian mother,
observed: 'the Whites, con-
sidering themselves to be a
highly superior race, looked
down upon both the coloured
and black people with scorn

and derision'[see B. Moore
1987: 192]. Even those white
newcomers who may have
been indifferent to the ques-
tion of race would within a
few months be 'inoculated
with the prevailing poison of
prejudice, and can no longer
feel at ease near a black man'
At one time or the other,
members of each race would
have encountered members of
another or all other races in
some form of conflict during the
74 years we have examined.
Ideas of belonging to a racial
group and ideas that individual
interests were intimately con-
nected to racial group interests
were already imbedded in the
society. Racial conflicts had be-
come rooted by 1905.
In this section an attempt
would be made to examine the
factors that influenced the out-
break of racial conflicts in Brit-

ish Guiana for the period 1831
to 1905. We have so far dis-
cussed how race. race relations
and racial conflict would be used
in this study. We have offered a
background to the various races
that inhabited the country dur-
ing the period under examina-
tion. In so doing, we have ex-
plored from where, when, how
and why they were brought and
also we have located them
within the social structure of the
society. An attempt was also
made to extract from secondary
sources the major racial conflicts
that have occurred. The races
that were involved were identi-
fied and the conditions that called
forth these race-based confronta-
tions were briefly examined. It is
against this broad background that
the causes of the racial conflicts
would be advanced.
The Guianese society of
the nineteenth century was pre-
sented as a plantation society.
One feature of the plantation
framework is that it depicted
the society as multiracial. The
members saw themselves and
were seen by others as belong-
ing to a particular racial group
and the various races, from time
to time, would engage each other
in relations of conflict. Further,
the society was dominated by

one group whose members be-
long to the same race i.e. there
was a convergence between
class and race.
According to psychologist
Leon Festinger [1954]. there is
a tendency for individuals to
constantly compare themselves
with others. In nineteenth-cen-
tury Guiana, this comparison
also manifested itself at the level
of racial groups. Each group
was constantly comparing itself
with all other groups. Henri
Tajfel [1970] has demonstrated
that when different groups re-
late to each other each group
seeks to maximise benefits for
its members even to the point
of the zero-sum proposition.
That is the in-group moves from
a position of maximising benefits
to wanting to take all the ben-
efits and thus leaving nothing
for out-groups. It would be ar-
gued in this section that the ra-
cial conflicts in nineteenth-cen-
tury Guiana were motivated by
group comparison. In advancing
this line of argument, my debt
to Horowitz [1985] must be ac-

pean race occupied the highest
position in the society. Further,
the theorists utilising the plan-
tation society model argue that
the European cultural system,
political arrangements and the
economy provided the nuclei
around which the society co-
hered. In this vein R. T. Smith
[1956] posited:
'Things English and
'white' were valued highly
whilst things African and 'black'
were valued lowly ... the abil-
ity to speak properly, to dress
properly, and to be able to read
and write were all marks of
prestige defined with reference
to English culture' [see Premdas
1995: 14].
Things English (read Euro-
pean/white) were the standards
by which every other thing was
compared and evaluated. Social
mobility was bound up with the
acquisition of these
Europeanised resources. Sec-
tions of the African race through
perseverance assimilated these
values and a few were able to
climb the social ladder. The
Mulattoes who shared African
and European ancestries were
also well positioned in the so-
cial hierarchy. Members of these
two groups began to compare
themselves with the whites of
similar education. wealth and so
on. Their comparison resealed:
hai they did not receive the
same recognition as the whiles
of similar accomplishments. The
re-conformation that they were
discriminated against on racial
grounds led them to engage the
European authorities in race-
based conflict. We have seen
that during the 1905 riots they.
refused to assist the Europeans
in the maintenance of law and
order. Instead, they joined the
African.working and lumpen
classes with whom they also,
shared a common racial ances-
try. .
Having acquired the trap-

The Indian/African compari-
son presented an image of the
Africans as a backward race. It
had a negative impact on the
self-esteem of the Africans and
it served to fuel their anger
against the Indians. The depre-
ciation of the Africans
emboldened the Indians who
were now willing to confront
them because they were less
afraid of their reputed physical
strength. Because of the positive
image of Indians as industrious
it would appear that the
plantocracy was more willing to
grant concessions of land to
them than to the Africans. Again
the Africans would see their
race as being discriminated
against in favour of another race
and this led to racial conflict be-
tween the Indians and Africans.

The Guianese society could
bedescribed as a migrant soci-
ety. With the exception of the
Amerindians and of the hybrid
groups e.g. the Mulattoes, all
the other races came from else-
where in particular Europe, Af-
rica and Asia. One of the major
fears of all the racial groups dur-
ing the nineteenth century was
the fear of extinction. In many
ways, this fear was rooted in ra-
cial-group comparison and it did
result in racial conflicts. In this
section, an attempt would be
made to demonstrate how this
level of fear influenced European
and African relations and the
nature of the racial conflicts that
characterized these relations.
The fear of extinction is of-

ership and control of the means

resided in the hands of members
of this race. Further. state
power was also in the hands of
members of this racial group and
the recognised social and cul-
tural patterns of the society had
a distinct European/British
flavour. As a numerical minor-
ity. the Europeans feared that
the newly freed Africans would
seek revenge against their former
masters. No doubt memories of
the various plantation rebellions
fed their imagination and inten-
sified their fear. They feared for
their lives. However, the wan-
ton carnage they anticipated
never materialised.
There was another level of
fear that occupied the minds of
the plantocracy in the immedi-
ate post-emancipation period.
that is, the fear that their plan-
tations would collapse and as a
result they would lose their
power, wealth, privilege and so-
cial standing. They feared that
the freed Africans would with-
draw their labour from the fields
and factories. They feared that
their sugar would be unable to
compete with slave-grown sugar
from other parts of the world.
Their fear of economic ruination
was not unfounded. Many of
the smaller planters were forced
to abandon cultivation and to
offer their properties for sale.
For example, the number of
sugar plantations decreased from
308 in 1830 to 196 in 1849 [see
B. Moore 1987: 34].
The success of the colony
was tied to the success of the
plantation system and the inter-
est of the white population was
tied to the interest of the
plantocracy. The merchant, the
clerk, the military officer, the
missionary, the magistrate or

However. these newaspirations of
the Africans nourished the fear of
the plantocracy who took active
measures to frustrate their attempts
at self-emancipation.
It was shown earlier that
the Africans began to negotiate
for a living wage. To curtail the
freedom of the ex-slaves the
planters imposed on them cer-
tain rules and regulations in
1842 which Governor Light
found most unacceptable be-

sought to '...divest the

G e o r g e
Mentore has
advanced the argument
that too little is taught
about Guyana's indig-
enous peoples, the
Amerindians, their way
of life and their culture.
He said so last week during
a presentation at the Walter
Roth Museum of Anthropology.
The occasion was the first pre-
Amerindian lecture held by the
Museum and the Amerindian
Research Unit in the University
of Guyana.
Professor Mentore. a

Guyanese who has lived with
the Wai Wai tribe for a number
of years and has studied their
culture, said in his presentation
tilled 'A Familiar Ailment':
"Listening to the recent well-
deserved and overdue celebra-
tions for the renowned
Guyanese historian. Walter
Rodney, it came to my attention
that even with the conscious-
ness of a pre-Columbian history
of the New World an aware-
ness that has included the indig-
enous peoples of the Americas
- official Guyanese national his-
tory has either lamely tagged on
any mention of Amerindians,
excluded them altogether. or
purposely brought them into

the service of nation-buildinc
the effect of modern politi
strategies," Mentore charged
The US-based Profess
who has a doctorate in Soc
Anthropology, told the gath
ing that included Amerind
Affairs Minister, Ms. Carol
Rodrigues, that Guyana is
to properly integr;
Amerindian history into !
Guyanese historical framewe

be called an Amerindian his-
toriography," he said.
Mentore pointed out that
this problem stems from the
Westernised approach in ac-
cepting society. He claim that
established Western and West-
ern influenced scholarship have
claimed that where people have
been identified in the world as
living without writing, they
were people without a history.
He said' that at least one of
the reasons for the persistent
lack of any substantive
Amerindian historiography has
had to do, at least in the
Guyanese scholarship, with the
refusal to apply the concept of
"society" to indigenous
Amerindian peoples.
"When you do not apply
the concept of society to a
people, not only do you take
away from, them the human
capacity to create the neces-
sary bounds of social rela-
tions constituting society you
also deny them the possibil-
ity of possessing alternative
ways of being human in the

Aruka Group wins


Youth Gold Award

CNIS THE Challenger Fish-
ing Group of Aruka River in
the North-West District,
Guyana, has won the top
prize in the Commonwealth
Youth Gold Award 2005 for
the Caribbean region. The
award was in recognition of
its contribution to commu-
nity development. The group
also won the Silver Award,
which enabled it to compete
for the Gold Award.
The fishing group was es-
tablished in 2000 by ten
young Amerindians indigenous
to the Aruka River region to

create employment opportu-
nities for their peers by pro-
moting fishing as a source of
livelihood. The group started
with six paddle boats carry-
ing two persons each before
progressing towards the use
of motorised boats, which en-
abled them to extend their
fishing grounds from the
mouth of the Aruka River to
the Atlantic Ocean.
"Winning this Gold Award
could not have been timelier,
since we are in the final stages
of building a new boat which
will need an engine. This will

help us to achieve our objective
of providing the community
markets with fresh and salted
fish," said Ubom Allicock, chair-
man of the Challenger Fishing
"The achievements of the
Challenger Fishing Group have
now attracted the interest of the
young people in the community
to start up youth groups," said
Michael Castello, Youth Officer
at Guyana's Ministry of Cul-
ture, Youth and Sports.
Each year the Common-
wealth Youth Programme hands
out up to five Commonwealth

Youth Silver Awards in each of
the regions Africa, Asia, South
Pacific and the Caribbean. The
Silver Award winners are then
nominated for the Common-
wealth Youth Gold Award for
the best in the respective re-
gions. The judging took place in
London, UK, in June 2005 in-
volving High Commissioners
and leading Commonwealth civil
society organizations.
Two other Silver Award
prize winners were the Paix-
Bauche Dance Theatre of
Dominica and the St. Kitts Na-
tional Youth Parliament Asso-
ciation. The Paix-Bauche Dance
Theatre was set up in 2000 to
promote and preserve the cul-
tural heritage of Dominica

he said as he pulled out a small
bottle of a smelly liquid from his
bag and gave it to me.

know my arrival date and to put
in a supply of oil for me.

spray on stuff ('Mozipel',
t made in Guyana!) from the phar-
macy. That was okay and really
kept the little devils at bay. But
I decided to try Archie's concoc-
tion. It also worked. Archie's
wife, Lydia, had made it out of
crab oil from a
traditional Guyanese recipe. It's
derived from crab wood seeds.
That meeting with Archie
was about five years ago.
I had some time on my

had told me Mahdia once had a
large community of emigrants
from Barbados. They had come
in the early part of the last cen-
tury to work as miners. Would
any be there now, I asked? I was
on a mission to find out for my-
self. I also wanted to check out
- the partially constructed road to
Lethem, near the Brazilian bor-
The sun's setting rays flitted
through the dense foliage as the

mini bus pulled into Mahdia's
main street, scattering a few
squawking chickens in the pro-
cess. "You will like it here,"
said a passenger in the next seat,
Ramon Wilson, a carpenter'
working on a government project
in the Pakaraimas.
It was arranged for me to
stay at the Regional Democratic
Council guesthouse. There the
house-keeper Gloria Rodrigues
made sure everything went-well.
"Any Barbadians in your
neighbourhood," I asked Ms.
Rodrigues, a member of the
Patomona (Amerindian) native
people, shortly after I settled
in. I knew I was on the right
track when she answered: "I
married one".
Archie came over and said
he would introduce me to a
few "Bajan-Guyanese" or "is-
landers" as they are some-
times called by longer resi-
dent Guyanese. Many had
come to then British Guiana
in the 1930s and 1940s when
times were tough in Barbados.
Some had also come in the
mid and late 18th century.
Some have returned to Bar-
bados, as well as their Guyanese
born children. There are also St.
Lucian-born Guyanese in
Mahdia, explained Archie who
once worked as a groundsman at
Kensington Oval cricket ground
in Barbados before he emigrated
to then BG to work as a miner
or "pork knocker".
"The next morning we had
coffee at Eustace Rollox's shop/
restaurant next to the quaintly
named "filling station" (aka gas
station in Barbados).
Mr. Rollox told me his par-
ents came from Barbados in the
1940s. The Rolloxes were related
to the Rollox family who oper-

ated a family run pharmacy (or
"drug store" as Bajans call it) on
Bay Street next to Manning's
hardware store in the Barbados
capital Bridgetown
In the centre of the town,
Lloyd Leacock said he was born
in Bathsheba on the island's east
coast. He used to be a seaman
on the schooners which plied
between Barbados and
"Dexinerara" as British Guiana
(BG") was also popularly
known in Barbados in the 1950s.
One day in 1955, something told
him not to sign back on the
schooner'Everdene' travelling to
Barbados. It was leaking
badly. Later, he learned that it
met up with Hurricane Janet.
Since then he has been in
Mahdia where he married a
Guyanese woman.
"I never meet back in
Barbados. I sitting here now
(in Madia). Guyana is my
home now. It has been good to
me. I mined for diamonds and
gold. I had malaria many
times. One time I was at
death's door. I didn't eat any-
thing for 18 days. How is Bar-
bados now? I am related to the
Clarkes, Kellmans and
Brewster families," he said as
I picked up the little nuances
of syntax (sentence structure)
and figurative speech which
he retained from Barbadian
Mr. Leacock gave me some
names for me to look up when I
returned to Barbados.
Over at the Education De-
partment, Regional Education
Officer Deokinandan
Harricharran pulls a file from the
big pile on his desk and asks me
about my trip up on the road. It
will eventually lead to the Bra-
zilian border, he reminds me.

Barbadian-Guyanese Archie Dear.

"There will be benefits to
communities such as Mahdia.
Even though we are off the main
road a bit, there will be a domino
A side trip was arranged on
the Saturday to the Ameridian
settlement at Micoubi. There, I
was kindly extended courtesies
by Captain Isaac Williams and
his family who took me on.a
tour of the compound including
the community Centre.
I was interested in the tour-
ist accommodation. Mahdia is
on the road to Kaieteur Falls.
With the new highway coming
on line, tourists can make the trip
by road and connect down to
Parika after visiting the falls. At
least two guest houses were
built recently. I promised the

business people I met I will
publicise the area when I re-
turned to Barbados.
Where are the mosquitoes, I
ask Archie as we walk to the
mini bus that will take me back
to Georgetown? I can't remem-
ber feeling one or even hearing a
buzzing sound while I was in
Mahdia. I used some of his
concoction but I didn't need it.
All my worries about getting
bitten up were for nothing. But
visiting Guyana's interior, you
have to be prepared.
"They are there. They
will raise up their heads when
the rains come. For your next
visit you bring this along," he
says as he presses yet
another bottle of his
trusted crab oil into my hand.

By: Allan La Rose
A SPIRITED and determined
second half display by Beacon
FC propelled them to a de-
served come from behind vic-
tory against home side GFC
on Friday night when the
GFL's 2005 Premier League
continued at the City's foot-
ball HQ.
Playing the greater part of
the game without ace midfielder
Emerik Williams, ejected by ref-
eree Wayne Joseph for serious
foul play in the 30th minute,
the 'Wiggy' Dover coached unit,
directed from the sideline by
stand in coach Culbert White,
showed a 'never say die' atti-
tude and were rewarded in the
2nd segment as the final whistle
came and the score-line read 3-
2 in their favor.
The Bourda Blues took the
lead in the 13th minute through
Rodwell Wellington and in-
creased it two minutes into the
second half when Seon Lewis
converted, and perhaps awak-
ened the 10-man Beacon.
Within five minutes the
lead was reduced as the nippy
Andre Mayers was brought
down in the area and central
defender Trilton Luke scored
-from the spot. Inspired and
undaunted Beacon took the
attack to their opponents.
Led by the "Tormentor"
Mayers, Beacon concentrated
their attacks down GFC's left
side which was evidently weak.
A well calculated run at the
defense by Mayers culminated

with an accurate right side cross
that found the waiting head of
Nigel Denny who made no
mistake in heading home for the
equalizer in the 70th minute.
The diminutive Mayers
then crowned his outstanding
performance with another at-
tack on the defence from the
right side.
This time, however, he
wormed his way past them and
from a very acute angle just out-
side the six yards box he booted
home the winner at the far post.
The win gives Beacon three
points to move to four from
two games, while GFC remain
pointless after two matches as
The final game of the
night's triple- header failed to
produce a goal as Pele FC and

goalless stalemate of the Premier

Alpha's challenge was
spearheaded by the
dreadlocked midfielder Alpha

utes the first real goal scor-

and wide from close up.

Sunday' Chronicle AuguSt 21, 2005

A DANCE bandleader who died recently
at the age of 97 liked to tell people he
was in "the happiness business." Aren't
we all, in a sense? Everyone wants to be happy.
as the Dalai Lama often points out. In our
fractious world, this may be the one point on
which we all agree. But when it cones to the
question 'What is happiness?' there are
probably six billion different answers one for
each person on the globe.
If we're observant, we may know when other people are
happy: the 'Duchenne smile', produced by involuntary muscle
contractions around the eyes and mouth, is a universal, if subtle
giveaway as recognisable to a Papua New Guinean tribesman
as to a British parliamentarian. What we generally can't tell is
why someone's happy. Half the time, we can't even tell for
ourselves. The right to pursue happiness is a wonderful
opportunity, but it doesn't automatically move us closer to an
answer. That may be the work of a lifetime.
Our best hope of having a good life and a safe plant is
to develop the kindlier, friendlier, more optimistic side of our
nature. A green light to pursue happiness is terrific, but where
to begin? Do we look to our surroundings work, family, our
social sphere? Or do we look within, at the desires and

personality traits that predispose us to be happy, and the genetic
or behavioral quirks that prevent us from feeling unalloyed joy?
Some happiness mavens have argued that we're only as happy
as we choose to be. If we're not happy, it means we've fallen

"- A


down on the job. Not a very happy prospect. Now, brain
science is coming to our rescue, with exciting new findings about
neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to adapt and change.
Pursuing happiness is not a moral issue but a practical one.
Though we inherit a certain potential for happiness, we can
enhance it by forming new neutral pathways. With practices
like meditation and cognitive training, we can reset our brains
to experience the world the way naturally happy people take
for granted.
Happy people see life as opportunity. Challenges are
blessings in disguise. When we feel happy, our minds are
open and expensive. Conversely, when we're open and
expansive, we feel happy. Happiness is an upward spiral. It
makes us not only feel better but be better better able to
forge fulfilling relationships, find meaningful pursuits and
handle the vicissitudes of life. Happiness helps us stay
healthy and whole no matter what the circumstances. Best
of all, we can pass it on to those around us.
If you are reading this article or been given it by someone
else happiness is obviously on your mind. Maybe you're
coming through a bad patch and wondering how to turn your
life around. Maybe your life is pretty good but think it could
be better. Either way, you'll want to explore what makes you
happy. Finding answers means asking the right questions.
Happiness, it has been said, is the whole end and aim of
life. But Ii can elusi %e We have to approach it indirectly, and

The prevailing wisdom used to be that it was healthier to
express emotions, even negative ones. So there were a lot of
people acting out in destructive ways and a lot of people
suffering from the onslaught. Now the pendulum has swung the
other way, and we know that expressing negative emotion can
be a double-edged sword. Very few people are skilful enough
to use anger constructively as a tool to promote social justice,
for example. Spraying anger around, as you pointed out, just
makes things worse. The brain is constantly being reshaped by
our experiences and laying down new pathways. So if we're
cruel, we're quite literally training our brain to respond with
cruelty whenever our anger is triggered.
"He who lies in harmony with himself lives in harmony
with the universe." Marcus Aurelius
How so? Traditionally, Western psychology has held
that all emotions including negative ones are part of
our makeup, coded in the brain, so the best we can do is
control our responses. The Buddhist view, however, is that
destructive, emotions are not part of our fundamental
nature which is pure and therefore they can be
eliminated. Granted, it takes years of dedicated effort by
very experienced practitioners to get a ride of negative
emotions. But just knowing that emotions like anger and
fear aren't permanent f'itures in the human psyche, opens
up the possibility of transformation and inner freedom.


.By becoming attentive to the workings of your mind
and the feelings in N\ou body, so that you ire aware of
emotions as they arire and can make choices about what
to do with them. One way to increase awareness is through
mindfulness practice. Research shows that mindfulness
practice increases .ct.I .it in the left cortex -.the part of
the brain that lights up when we experience positive
emotion reducing anxiety and improving concentration
and mood. Ekman suggests we try to-become more
sensitive to other people's emotions so wel won't jump
to wrong conclusions about their intentions and behaviour.
The Dalai Lama's recommendation of cultivatihg empathy
is to start small, with ants and other insects.
"Really attend to them and recognize that they too wish
to find happiness, experience pleasure, and be free of
pain," he says. From there, we can repeat the exercise with
reptiles, then work up the evolutionary chain till we are
developing empathy for human beings.

by one of the senior em-
ployees of the company that
it was possible for the com-
pany to produce the second
edition, but it would require
some time for them to assess
the cost of printing.
The new edition was to be'
exactly similar in pattern, size
and specification to Zamir's
On August 20, 1965, the
defendant company submitted a
quotation for the job and also a
sample of paper. The quotation
was signed and accepted by the
plaintiff during the first week of
December 1965, when the
plaintiff ordered 1 000 copies at
$6.50 a copy. It took some time
before production of the book
got underway, and there were
proofs submitted to the plain-
tiff from time to time when he
made author's corrections.
The Chief Justice went on
to say that eventually on the
April 23, 1966, three bound
copies of the second edition
were delivered to the plaintiff by
the assistant to the production
manager. It was then discovered
that there were flaws in the
bound volumes in respect of
size and specifications which
did not accord with the sample
of Professor Zamir's work, a
volume similar to which was
wanted by the plaintiff. It was
also noticeable that the paper,
which did not accord with the,
sample shown to the plaintiff,
was two shades in colour and
the leaves had been cut too nar-
rowly and did not leave a wide

enough margin.
According to the Chief Jus-
tice, the plaintiff pointed out
these faults to Mr. Ross, the
foreman binder, and Mr.
Gittens, the assistant to the
production manager, and in-
formed them that they had not
kept faith with the agreement.
He also informed them that
there were two pages in the
table of contents that were loose
in each of the three volumes.
They replied that the pages
could not be stitched with the
other leaves because of techni-
cal difficulties, but the leaves
could be pasted in with the
other leaves which would not be
noticeable to customers.
They then stated that it was
impossible to remedy the faults
but they could supply a larger
cover and give a wider margin.
It was also agreed upon that the
difference in colour of the pa-
per could be overcome by trim-
ming the edges of the leaves.
The plaintiff was then promised
the delivery of twenty copies
during that week, which prom-
ise was not kept.
On Saturday, April 30, the
plaintiff visited the premises of
the defendant company and
was informed by the production
manager that the books were
not yet ready, but on further
enquiry he was informed that if
he waited he could have 12 vol-
umes before the close of busi-
ness on that day.
Later, he saw what he con-
-sidered the first 12 volumes
produced according to specifica-
tions as the first three volumes

had been rejected by him be-
cause of the faults as stated. The
plaintiff saw the 12 volumes
bound from already stitched
material and saw them wrapped
up and parceled out and they
were delivered to him and he
gave a receipt for them.
On May 3, 1966, the plain-
tiff ordered 1 000 paper jackets
to go with the volumes and at
the time fixed the price of a vol-
ume at $10.00 which was in-
serted on the jacket, and on the
same day he signed a quotation
form for the covers.
On that day, 68 more cop-
ies of the book were delivered
to him. On May 11, 1966, the
plaintiff received 200 more
copies of the book and signed
a delivery note. On May 13,
1966, he received another 97
copies and on May 17, 1966,
when he instituted the action,
he had received 300 copies.
After the action was filed,
the plaintiff received the full
agreed quota of 1,000 copies of
his book, which included the
three rejects and paid off the bal-
ance of the contract price for the
printing of the books, i.e., $3
250 and received a notice of ac-
ceptance from the solicitor to
the defendants.
On May 11, 1966, at 10.30
p.m. the plaintiff sold the first
copy of his book to a legal prac-
titioner, who gave him certain

information which shocked the
Under the contract made
between the parties, the defen-
dant company was not
authorised to sell or distribute,
or offer for sale, or to dispose
in any manner of any of the
copies of his books.
The simple arrangement
was that the defendant com-
pany was to print 1,000 cop-
ies of the book and deliver
them to the plaintiff at a price
of $6 500.
After receipt of the infor-
mation from the practitioner it
was then, for the first time, to
his utter dismay, the plaintiff
became aware of what was sub-
sequently proved to be an es-
tablished fact, that during the
months of April and May, 1966
copies of his book were being
hawked around and sold by two
employees of the defendant
company, the bind-
ing department, to members of
the legal profession and the
public. The price of these vol-
umes which were sold valued
from $5.00 to $10.00.
On May 12, 1966, the
plaintiff received further infor-
mation from another legal prac-
titioner as a result of which he
went immediately to the defen-
dants' premises and there he
saw the manager, Mr. Wilson,
and told him that he had been

informed by a legal practitioner
that his books were all over the
place and were being sold to
lawyers by men who said they
were selling on behalf of the
Lithographic Company.
The manager expressed sur-
prise that the book should have
taken the market like that and
he called on his production
manager and the assistant pro-
duction manager who did not
contribute to the discussion.
The plaintiff informed the
manager that he would hold the
company responsible for any
damage that he might suffer as
the company was employed
merely to print the books and
not to sell or otherwise dispose
of them.
Continuing his judgment, the
Chief Justice said that the man-
ager appeared to think that it
was a matter for the police.
Later that day, the plaintiff
communicated with the police
and made a report, as he realized
that he would have to enter into
competition with other people
who were selling his books at
under-value. Reacting to
the allegations by the plaintiff,
Counsel for the defendant com-
pany, submitted that on the
doctrine of master'and servant,
the company is not liable in
negligence and indeed for the
unlawful acts of their servants
Bradshaw and Denny in the

theft of the books, as these em-
ployees were employed in the
bindery department for the pur-
pose of binding books and not
for the purpose of stealing them
or selling them without author-
ity. In other words, he submit-
ted that the master is only liable
where the servant commits an
unlawful act in relation to an act
which he is authorised to do.
However, the Chief Justice
found in the present case that
the defendant company was
negligent in the publication and
printing of the plaintiff's books
and, indeed, in the performance
of their contract.
Awarding damages to the
plaintiff for the actual and loss
of seven books, the Chief Jus-
tice had said, "In the circum-
stances of the case it is my view
that it can be truly said that
Bradshaw and Denny were
clothed by the authority to bind
the books by reason of which
they were enabled to steal and
or convert the books. In any
event, the books under the con-
tract being the property of the
plaintiff, it is established that
where a servant has custody of
goods which are the property of
a third party, then the master
would be liable for the loss of or
damage to the goods caused by
the servant's wrongful act if the
act is done in the course of the
servant's employment

Reading and You

When you read with ease so that words, phrases,
clauses and sentences soon get connected and
allow you scope to query what the writer is say-
ing, you are on your way to successful and reward-
ing reading.

You can then probe the writing for hidden meaning. Hid-
den meaning is deeper meaning most often found in
specially written phrases. To find deeper meaning you
need to apply deeper thinking. Do you know that read-
ing is a thinking process? Yes, it is.

You may even want to disagree with what you are
told by the writer (because you have additional in-
formation, maybe), but doing that is going beyond
'the boundaries of the passage.

Let us look at a kind of reading called "reading be-
tween the lines."

When an author writes a story he does not want
to fool you or confuse you. He wants you to un-
derstand everything he writes. He also wants to
earn your interest and let you have an opinion about
what you read. In doing so he tries to make you
form-pictures in your mind..


But an author can have different ways of writing.
An author can choose to be straightforward at
times. At another time he can write to encourage
you to use your higher order reading skills.

The two sentences below express the same
thought. Read them aloud.

1. "Don't be so stubborn, Jennifer," said Mrs. Davis.
"You're always very unwilling to comply with in-
structions." ..

2. "Don't be such a mule, Jennifer," said Mrs.
You 're always making a fuss."

In the first sentence the writer said exactly what he
meant. The words were very clear and the mean-
ing was plain.

In the second statement however, the meaning
was not so simply put. In this statement the writer
used words that he did not mean. Jennifer was
not really a mule; nor did she resemble one. She
was just an ordinary girl that had her own opinion.
She was not making stubborn movements like a
rmule. She was just being self-opinioned.
Just why did the writer make these statements?
He knew that his readers would not misunder-
stand. That's why.

Maybe he wanted his readers to think up pictures
of a girl that was stubborn. Such pictures make
reading very interesting. As you learn more and
more about reading between the lines, you will find
yourself receiving more from your
ral reading.

tos Exercise
By reading between the lines, decide
oeswhat is really meant by each of the
Ia words or phrases in italics. Several
s meanings are listed after each sen-
es tence. Choose the best one.

1. You can never trust him.
wolf in sheep's clothing.

He's a

He howls like a wolf.
He wears woolen clothes.
He looks like a wolf, but he dresses well.
He is mean and cunning, but he pretends to be
meek and innocent, like a sheep.
He eats like a wolf, but doesn't get any spots on
his clothing

2. "We'll stand by you whenever you need us."
We'll serve you.
We'll wait alongside you.
We'll be ready to help.
We'll be near you.
We'll hide by you.


Use your dictionary for this exercise.
For each numbered sentence, use context clues
to determine the meaning of the word in bold print.
Then from the list of synonyms at the bottom,
choose the synonym that could replace the bold
printed word. Write the synonym in brackets after
the sentence.

1. The police arrested a group of people involved
in a conspiracy to overthrow the government.
( )
,2. Next Sunday the two top dancers will vie for the
trophy )

3. The villain's influence is insidious: He creeps
into your confidence before you realize it.
' ( )

4'. The shampoo makes dull hair more lustrous.
( ) .

5. Eva's hair is not really auburn; it is more of a
copper colour. ( )

6. Sandra's habit is to leave home fifteen minutes
later than she should, so she is invariably late to
class. ( )

7. Yvonne does not care one whit about the feel-
ings of others. ( )

8. Mayor Wilkins viewed the garbage dump with
repugnance. ( )

9. Will the deep blue of the shirt complement or
clash with the lighter blue of the jacket?
( )'

10. Once a politician's reputation is tarnished; he
or she will find it hard to get re-elected.
( )

The list of synonyms: always, reddish, stained,
shiny, plot, compete, subtle, concerned, jot, suit.
(Use words from the list with the sentences above.)

In drawing a conclusion you are behaving very
much like a detective who examines clues to find
the solution to a mystery. In drawing a conclusion
you consider your life experiences as well as the
actual details or facts with which you are provided.
Try the following excerpts:

I breakfasted this morning at nine, and after
glancing through the morning paper, I proceeded
to let my mind wander in the hope that I might
chance upon some subject for my pencil.
The. room, though door and windows were
open, was oppressively hot, and I had just
made up my mind that the coolest and most
comfortable place in the neighbourhood would
be the deep end of the public swimming pool
when the idea came.
I began to draw. So intent was I on my work
that I lefty my lunch untouched, only stopping
work when the clock struck four.

Based on this paragraph, what conclusion can you
draw about the narrator's subject from the pas-
sage? How did you come to this conclusion?

It was the man I had been drawing whose por-
trait lay in my pocket.
He sat there, huge, the sweat pouring from his
scalp, which he wiped with a red silk handkerchief.
But though the face was the same, the expression
was absolutely different.
He greeted me smiling, as if we were friends,
and shook my hand.
I apologised for my intrusion.
"Everything is hot and glary outside," I said.
"This seems an oasis in the wilderness."
"I don't know about the oasis," he replied, "but it
certainly is hot. Take a seat, sir!"
Based on this paragraph, what conclusions can
you draw about the huge man ?, How did you come
to this conclusion?

Sunday Chronicle August 21, 2005



ON SOME occasions patients attend the
dental clinic with signs and symptoms
depicting the oral phenomenon of a
venereal disease. While gonorrhea of the throat
is sometimes encountered, syphilis is seen more
often. Experience shows that at no time did any
of these patients have prior knowledge of the
actual cause of their condition.
Syphilis is a venereal disease (sexually transmitted
disease) caused by a spiral shaped germ that can move
about like a tadpole. Someone can either acquire the dis-
ease or be born with it. The untreated acquired form
has three easily recognisable stages.

1. The primary lesion called the chancre (sore)
is usually solitary.

2. The secondary lesions are numerous reddish
patches or nodules.

3. The tertiary lesion called gumma (similar to
the chancre) is found in the mouth.

Ten per cent of the syphilitic patients manifest ulcers on the
lining of the mouth. These correspond to the site of inoculation
where there is a defect in the surface continuity of the skin or mu-
cosa (lining). The germs are transferred by direct contact with pri-.
mary or secondary lesions of an infected individual. The chancres

develop about three weeks after inoculation and persist for three
weeks to two months.
While chancres on the genitalia are characteristically painless,
oral lesions become painful soon after they ulcerate because of the
contamination by the oral fluids and naturally occurring bacteria.
Also, certain areas of the person's neck usually become tender and
painful to the touch. The primary lesion occurs most often on the
lips, on the tip of the tongue, in the tonsillar (throat) region, and on
the gum. They start as small red boils which get bigger and eventu-
ally ulcerate. The fluid coming from these nodules is extremely in-
fectious and at this point the disease can easily be transmitted to



The Dentist Advises

another person through the so-called French kiss.
Mature chancres measure from 0.5 to 2 centimetres in diameter
and have narrow, copper-coloured, slightly raised borders with a
reddish-brown base (centre). The lesions are ulcerated over nearly
their entire surface with a base that is shiny and usually clear of
rotted material and debris. Chancres occurring on the border of the
lips are usually crusted. When it is initiated during the primary stage
of the disease, penicillin injections over a period of seven days will
successfully eliminate syphilis in the vast majority of cases.
The multiple secondary lesions of the syphilis appear five to
six weeks after the disappearance of the chancres and undergo spon-
taneous remission within a few weeks, but recurrences may be mani-
fested periodically for months or even years. Sometimes the dis-
ease involves the brain causing madness and death. Children who
were born with syphilis develop teeth with jagged edges and with
some having a pointed shape.
Although a variety of lesions may occur in different parts
of the body during the tertiary stage of untreated syphilis, gum-
mas develop in about half of such cases. They are the most
common syphilitic lesions seen in the oral cavity.

XII Guyana Chroni

HE news in 2005
that cinema
attendance for
new Hollywood films and
maybe new films in
general, was
significantly down, came
as no surprise to many
film critics and fans
everywhere. Wherever
serious and careful
attention is paid to
movies, especially
Hollywood movies,
recent films in large
numbers since the
1980s have proved no
match for films of
previous decades.
People simply could not di-
gest endless noisy films with cit-
ies tumbling down, police and
criminals, and black Americans
etc., in ghettoes shooting and
robbing, a lot of silly jokes, stu-
pid dialogue, frantic human
behaviour, supernatural horror,
military science-fiction, hi-tech,
zoom lens, nauseatingly glossy
speedy films. Even if such films
are said to be reflecting the
moods of life today, that would
be a grossly one-sided exploit-
ative method of film-making
which traps humans in stories
celebrating their own destruction.
The alternative to such self-
destructive entertainment could
be a balanced return to calm,
constructive, but intense film-
making, with much silence, clar-
ity and beautiful acts of human
concern, as well as clear dialogue
and conversations about topics
that need to be discussed truth-
fully, rationally, leaving audi-
ences inspired positively, and en-
lightened. The sort of films made
by European film directors like
Antonioni, Fellini, Bertolucci,
Visconti, DeSica, Goddard,
Truffaut, Jacques Demy, Louis
Malle, Eric Rohmet, Claude
Lelouch, Ingmar Bergman; Brit-
ish directors like Alfred
Hitchcock, Tony Richardson,
Joseph Losey. Stanley Kubrick,
John Schlesinger; and American
directors like Elia Kasan. John
Huston, Billy Wilder. John
Sturges. Sydney Pollack, and
others of similar quality. An In-
dian director like Satyajit Ray
remains vital today.
Three facts have been cited
as the cause for a decline in cin-
ema attendance. (I) People arc
rediscovering the brilliance of
past films which are being re-
leased again on DVD. Most of
these films are not shown on TV,

0 $ By Terence Roberts

and obviously not shown in
today's cinemas. The price of
these DVDs can range from high
to low (from $10 to $60 Cdn),
according to special sales and au-
thentic quality. (2) The second
reason cited for lowered cinema
is much too loud, especially
when noisy, explosive, hysteri-
cal scenes prevail, and when ad-
vertisements precede the film. (3)
The third reason is that people
are discovering film programmes
attached to Art Museums, Film
Societies, etc., where the tradi-
tion of excellence continues com-
mercial screenings of classic

'Breakdown' with Kurt Russell
is an outstanding and profoundly
well made film.
Recently, some new won-
derful Hollywood films with the
tradition of past high standards
emerged. One was the adventure
action film 'Sahara' with the
beautifully tender yet tough
Spanish actress Penelope Cruz.
'The Interpreter' with Sean Penn
and Nicole Kidman was another.
But the recent Hollywood film

such countries. One would natu-
rally think that people of local
residence would be trying to
make their homeland a happier
place than foreign ghetto
lifestyles. 'Crash' is an American
film of today which looks hon-
estly at American behaviour pat-
terns which have become too in-
fluential abroad.
As has been pointed out be-
fore, the decline of today's Hol-
lywood films has led to the rise
of new American TV
programmes of superior quality
than many new films. Such

Bollywood films with skillful,
upbeat examples of song and

people which often lead to hasty

Hello Readers,

This week, we will be discuss-
ing pond ecosystems and its
function in the natural envi-
An ecosystem is a living
community of plant and ani-
mals sharing an environment
with non-living elements such as
climate and soil.
Ecosystems exist on a vari-
ety of scales. An example of a
small scale ecosystem (micro) is
a pond. A medium scale ecosys-
tem (messo) could be a forest.
The tropical rainforest is an ex-
ample of a very large ecosystem
Sunlight is the main source
of energy in an ecosystem.
Plants convert the energy from
sunlight by the process of
photosynthesis. The energy is
stored in the plant tissue and
allows the plant to provide food
for some animals, birds and fish.
These are called herbivores
because they feed only on
plants. The other animals eat
the animals that have eaten the
plants and so, they are called
carnivores. This process of
eating and being eaten links the
plants and animals into a
relationship called the FOOD

Algae are the main produc-
ers of a pond ecosystem. Some
are easily seen and form green
floating mats on the surface, but
others are microscopic. These
microscopic algae provide abun-
dant food for microscopic ani-
mals, which are in turn food for
larger creatures such as water
beetles and insect larvae. These
are eaten by fish, which are then
hunted by predatory birds.
Pond snails graze algae and in
turn get eaten by fish, newts
and birds.

Above the surface there is
plenty of oxygen, which dis-
solves in the water from the air
above. Oxygen is produced by
plants and trees surrounding, the
The surface is completely
open, so there is usually plenty
of sunlight going into the water.
The only shelter here is among
the surface plants like water lil-
ies, if they are a part of that
Many small animals live
here and breathe through their
gills, lungs or skin.

Birds and insects have to
hunt at the surface, margin or
dive into the water to find food.
The few main predators in-
clude larger insects such as drag-
onflies; fish; larger birds; and
some mammals.

Underwater plants produce
oxygen and creatures here
breathe through their gills or.
skin. Food is more difficult to
find and most hunt at the sur-
face, margin or scavenge the bot-
tom. Some light reaches this
habitat through the water, but
the further down the darker it
gets! There is less shelter, un-
less lots of floating plants are

Plants find it hard to grow
at greater depth, because of the
lack of light and reduced oxygen
levels. Since there-are few
plants there, the number of ani-
mals living in that part of the
pond ecosystem is also few.
However, fish and insects that
can dive down for food lurk in
the mud waiting to pounce.
Generally, food in the mud and
debris includes dead or decay-
ing plant or animal material (de-
tritus). As the dead material rot
and decompose on the bottom,
further reducing the oxygen lev-
els at that part of the pond.
So, one finds that the pond
ecosystem though small in size,
is simple, yet complicated when
you take a closer look at how it

The world has many differ-
ent ecosystems. Each one has
its own climate, soil, plants and
animals. Very few ecosystems

On'small areas such as gar-
den beds or vegetable banks, the
recommended fertilizer may be
broadcasted evenly, over the
planting area and lightly raked in.
No fertilizer should be left ex-
posed on the soil surface. If small
amounts of fertilizer are applied (a few grams) then this should
be dissolved in a watering can. The fertilizer solution should
then be evenly applies over the area to be planted.
Spot placement is used when planting crops such as beans, corn,
squash, pumpkin, melon and cucumber, which have large seeds. The
fertilizer should be put approximately 5cm (2 inches) below the soil.
After placement, the fertiliser must be covered with soil.
For crops that are planted close together in roiws such as
corn, eschallot, beans, band placement of fertilizer is recom-
mended. In organised planting of-crops such as peppers,
boulanger, tomato, band placement is also effective.
The fertilizer is placed in a shallow groove or furrow, 2.5cm
(1 inch) deep along the row of the plants. The distance of the
band from the row varies with the crop type. For crops such
as corn and beans, the fertilizer is placed 22cm (9 inches) from
the row crop. In the case of eschallot, celery, lettuce, cabbage,
pak choi, the fertilizer is placed 7-10 cm (3-4 inches) away from
the row crop.

Fertilising fruit crops begins with the preparation of the planting
holes, since most fruit crops are transplanted. Planting holes should
be at least 60 cm (2 feet) across if circular or of 60 cm side, if square,
and 60 cm deep. The soil from the top 30 cm of th ehole should be
kept separate from the soil below depth.
The soil from each portion of the hole should be mixed with
manure, compost or the appropriate mineral fertilizer. The soil
from the top half of the hole, after mixing, should be but in the
bottom. The remaining soil should be placed when transplant-
ing occurs. It is always advisable that when filled, the top of
the hole should be mound to about 15 -20 cm (6-8 inches)
higher than the surrounding areas. This allows for setting of the
soil and prevents water logging of the young tree.
Recommendations for fertilizer applications are dependent
on the type of fruit crop. Generally, either annual or bi annual
applications of fertilisers or manures are required. When fertil-
izers are applied, these should be placed in a circular band around
the tree. Fertiliser application should not be beyond the drip
line. This is the recommended practice for crops such as coco-
nut, citrus, avocado and papaw.
A slight modification of this method of incorporation
is to band the fertilizer at three or four places under the
trees. Again this should not go beyond the drip line.

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today
we'll learn how the systems interrelate with
each other, and the effect when they malfunc-

How the Systems Interrelate
Now that you have learnt about the main organ sys-
tems in the human body, you should be able to know
how they all interact or interrelate with each other.
The nervous system is called the control centre.
If they were to break down, the other organ sys-
tems in the body would not be able to function prop-
erly. In the same way the other systems depend
on each other to function effectively. Can you ex-
plain how the digestive and circulatory systems
relate to each other? Can you imagine what would
happen if something goes wrong with your respi-
ratory system? Think of other ways in which the
systems would be affected if something goes wrong
with one of them.

AD l t


The Excretory System

The effect when they Malfunction

When one part of a machine does not perform sat-
isfactorily, the whole machine is affected. In same
way the human body gets problems when the di-
gestive, excretory or any other organ system is
not functioning well. Can you tell what can go wrong
with the body systems? Have you ever had an ex-
perience in which one of your systems was not per-
forming well? Disease can cause the body's sys-
tems to malfunction. Have you ever had the flu,
headache or a common cold? The common cold
may lead to pneumonia which will affect your respi-
ratory system. Abuse of cigarettes, alcohol and
drugs can cause systems to mal-function severely.
Injury can also cause systems to malfunction.
Sometimes when one system is not working well,
another system has to assist with its functions. Can
you name a system which can help another?

...... .nJe* -
a" "-f

We are responsible for our own body so we must
take proper care of it. If we want our bodies to func-
tion well we must learn to practise healthy habits.
We must have clean and tidy homes and surround-
ings. We must also eat the right type of food and
get enough rest and exercise. Sleep is very impor-
tant for the organ systems. They, too, need to rest!

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this week's Social Studies in-
put. If you want to study effectively, you
must be prepared to make a clean break
with those habits that are not helpful for
good study. Be careful, now! Love you.



Animals (Continued)
Broadening the Horizon: Wildlife
What is wildlife? Wildlife is about every-
thing that concerns non-domesticated animals
and plants in a particular area. In Guyana
we have rainforests, shell beaches, river and
ocean areas, and other naturally kept ex-
panses which harbour wildlife. Can you think
of any other naturally kept areas? Yes: moun-
tains and valleys; ponds and lakes; sandy ar-
eas which have some of our valuable forests;
and we can go on..
What is animal habitat? Animal habitat is
the place where the animal lives. The habitat
includes all the animals, plants, soil, and rocks
that the animal needs to gain food and shel-

ter. It also includes the air and water the ani-
mal needs to live and reproduce. The pic-
tures give ideas of animals and their habitats.
Environment is another name for habitat.

Physical Environment of Guyana: Vegeta-
Vegetation is the name given to trees, crops,
bush, and other plants growing all round.
There is vegetation all around us growing wild
or planted by people. We are not like a desert
place where vegetation is found in places set
apart for it.
Let us look at dominant vegetation found in
some communities:
In places found in the low coast people have
drained and planted rice, sugar cane, ground
provisions, fruit trees and other crops.
In places of swamps in other areas vegeta-
tion such as manicole, truli, bisi-bisi, man-
grove and moco-moco are found.
The forested areas are vast and make up much
of our large interior. Many of the trees found
there are good for building houses, boats and
stellings, as well as making furniture. Kakaralli
and greenheart are found in the rocky areas.

In places where there is brown sand, there
are trees like the wamara and bulletwood;
dakama and wallaba are found on the white
The Rupununi savannahs have grass and
sandpaper trees which cover the dry areas,
while the ete (ite) palm can be found mainly
along streams and in swampy areas.

The passage

The selection below is taken from Sweet Prom-
ised Land by Robert Laxalt (1959: 62-3). You
can use the questions below it as guidelines for
a better understanding of the passage. If your
own writing can provoke such discussion, then it
has hit the mark of excellence.

Sweet Promised Land is a biography of Laxalt's
father, a Basque shepherd who went to America
when he was sixteen. As Laxalt puts it, "My fa-
ther was a sheepherder, and his home was the
hills. So it began when he was a boy in the
misted Pyrenees of Nevada." Look at the de-
scription of Laxalt's father at the age of 63. He
was in an exclusive New York restaurant, on his
way back to his homeland fdrthe first time since
he came to America.

We made it through the soup and salad without
incident. It began when the ivaiter came to take
away our salad plates and put on others for the
main course. He collected, John's and mine,
and then reached for my father's.. But he could
not lift it, because my father was holding it to
the table with both hands.
"I'm sony," said the waiter. 'l thought you were
"I'm finished," said my father
"Oh," said the waiter, and again reached for the
salad plate. My father held!on..
"May I take your plate, sir?" 'said the waiter.
"No," said my father mildly.
The waiter stood in confused silence for a mo-
ment. "But I have to put another plate there,
My father shook his head. "It is all right," he
said. "Don't go to any bother."
The waiterblinked and then smiled weakly. "Oh,
it's no bother at all," he said, and again reached
for the plate.
This time, my father put his hands over the plate
to protect it. The waiter stopped short and
straightened up. He looked at us in something
akin to frenzy, and John gestured with his head.
The waiter retreated to the back of the room and
stood there watching us from long distance. He
was pale and still had a plate in his hands.
"Pop, said John, "Why don't you give him your
My father shrugged. "It's clean enough," he
This time John blinked. "I don't understand what
you mean."
"They shouldn't waste a plate,' said my father.
"This one's fine."
John regarded my father for a long moment.
"It's really no bother, he said. "They've got a
washer back there that does all the work."
"Well, they might run short," my father said.
"I'm telling you, Pop," said John. "There's no
danger." He took a deep drag of his cigarette
and leaned forward again. "Pop," he said,
"You're going to get that waiter in trouble."
"What?' said my father concernedly?
"It's this way," said John. "They're supposed to
put a new plate on for each course." That's the
way the management wants it. If the waiter

doesn't do it and one of the managers sees him,
he gets fired on the spot."
"I never heard of such a thing," "my father said..
"It's true," said John. "That. waiter's probably,
worried plenty by now."
"Well hell," said my father. "Tell him to take it

For a better understanding of the text

1. Do you think this was the first incident the fa-
ther had with the waiter? Support your answer.
2. What did the waiter say when the father re-
fused to give up his plate to him?
3. Can you say that the waiterwas persistent?
Give evidence to support your answer.
4. Why do you think the present tense was used
in the following sentence: "They're supposed to
put a new plate on for each course; That's the
way the management wants it"?
5. Explore the language of the waiter and give
two observations about it. Look at his com-
"I'm sorry. I thought you were finished."
"May I take your plate, sir?"
"But I have to put another plate there, sir."
"Oh, it's no bother at all."
6. Why do you think the waiter used "sir"' and
"may I"? Give about two reasons for their use.
7. Give the tone of voice the waiter used as he
spoke to the writer's father.
8. Was the brother making up the story about
management and new plates? Give reasons for
your answer.
9. In essence, why do you think the father refused
to let the waiter take his plate? What did the
father actually say?
10. Has anything similar to what happened in the
extract ever happened to you? Tell about it.
11. Get into your study group and.then write and
comment on what each of you thinks about the
father, the son, and the waiter, each in his turn.
12. What would you have done if you had been
the father, the son, and the waiter in his turn?
13. What is your understanding of that aspect of
the culture from which the writer's father came?


Writing Well
The Adjective and Adverb

Do you remember what you have done about the
adjective? Well, you have seen that the adjec-
tive ordinarily functions either as modifiers or as
complements. Look at this sentence below.

In general, that single-word and coined modifi-
ers of nouns are thought of as adjectives.

The adjective modifier:

Here are two examples of the adjective used as
a modifier.
The kidnapping bandits sought after a heavy
The tie-tongued orphan searched all day with-
out finding a morsel to eat.

Now for the adjective complement:

When an adjective is used as a complement,
it ordinarily follows a linking verb.

The stream became shallow and narrow.
Someone licked the platter clean.
Functions of the Adverb

.Let us now go on to the functions of the adverb.

Adverbs function usually as modifiers of verbs,
but they sometimes modify other words as well
as phrases and whole sentences. The most
common adverb functions are listed below.

a) Modifying a verb: In general, single-word
modifiers of verbs are thought of as ad-
The grass grew over.
Garden manure rot wonderfully after some

Adverbs that modify verbs shift position freely.
We seldom see each other.
We see each other seldom.

b) Modifying a linking-verb complement: An
adverb may modify an adjective used as a link-
ing-verb complement.
The dinner was deliciously prepared.
Our Ralph is unusually cross.

c) Modifying an adjective: An adverb may
modify an adjective.
Marion is an unusually brilliant pre-school child.
Mr. Watson is an extraordinarily strong bass.

d) Modifying an adverb: An adverb may
modify another adverb.
Your pot bakes tasted surprisingly well.


A. Underline the adverbs in the following sen-
tences. Then identify the function of each ad-
verb by writing one of these labels over it: vm
(verb modifier), adj. mod (adjective modifier),
adv mod (adverb modifier), or mod Ivc (modi-
fier of linking-verb complement).

1. The woman is annoyingly wasteful.
2. Simon Goody fought unsuccessfully for
shingles off houses.
3. Mr. James is always happy.
4. The crew travels late Friday.
5, This booby trap has unusually large spikes.

B. Describe then function of each adjective and
adverb in the following sentences.

1. The gruff secretary quickly lined up the ner-
vous cashiers.
2. Tony excitedly opened the tiny jewel box.
3. The aluminum paddleboat was bounced noisily
from one rough wave to the next.
4. The "Pamela George" sped furiously onward.'
5. The fearil youth seized the accused by his hair.

IN THIS, the second in
our series of articles on
. .historic Hindu and Mos-
lem places of worship in
Guyana, we examine the pe-
riods of their historic devel-
opment. In his book,
S* * 'Temples and Mosques: An Il-
lustrated Study of East In-
dian Places of Worship in
M a Vra Guyana' (1980), Karna
- Bahadur Singh gave four pe-
,onte nt riods in the historical devel-
opment of Hindu and Mos-
al News Providers" lem places of worship in
Guyana: the first from the
1880s to the end of the 19th
century; the second being
- during the early 20th cen-
-* tury; the third from the early
- 1950s; and the fourth from
..- about the 1970s. This series
would not detail the fourth
period as we are only dealing
here with the early temples
and mosques.
-, As stated in the previous
article, temples and mosques
were not introduced to British
Guyana prior to the 1880s. By
- this time, the indentured ser-
S vants had adjusted them-
selves to the new physical
and social environment, but
ensuring the continuance of
some traditional Indian ac-
"" tivities. There was even what
Singh calls "perpetuating an-
S- cestral continuity" among the
-Indian immigrants. With re-
spect to places of worship,
S,- --. this included the direct trans-
S- ,,, ference of "things" Indian,
such as the use of sacred
Hindu flora, and the use of
waterways as a substitute for

the sacred Ganges River in In-
dia. It was in this period that the
earliest Hindu temples and
Moslem mosques belong. Ac-
cording to Singh, the temples
and mosques of this first period
"exhibit the solidity and perma-
nence of a period of consolida-
tion; while in the authentic ren-
dering of traditional architec-
tural form, they exhibit the im-
pulse to concretise visually the
ancestral landscape."
This description is in com-
plete contrast to what he gives
of the temples and mosques
built during the second period,
that is, those built during the
first half of the 20th century.
These he says, "exhibit a
marked discontinuity with
ancestral India in their archi-
tectural features, while dis-
playing many of the indig-
enous features of colonial ar-
chitecture." The temples and
mosques of this period
reached their architectural
high point during the 1920s
to 1940s, declining from
about the 1950s. This radical
re-formatting of the Indian reli-
gious architecture (Singh calls it
'creolisation') came about as a
result of some degree of cross-
cultural changes evident during
those years. For example, the
shedding of the Indian languages
and dress, and the adoption of
the English language, together
with western clothing and edu-
cation, became widespread. Ar-
chitecture is not immune to such
cross-cultural exchanges when a
displaced people try to 'fit in'
with the prevailing socio-cul-

- a

tural context.
There was during this time,
however, a growing revival of
'things Indian' which "culmi-
nated in the 1940s and after in
the general search for classical
Hindu and Islamic cultural
forms" says Singh. This pro-
duced the third period of Indian
Religious Architecture in
Guyana, from about the 1950s.
As Singh says, this period "re-
veals the aberrations, eccentrici-
ties and authentic imitations
which resulted from the cu-
mulative effect of this 'reviv-
alism' in the quest for au-
thentic classical forms." The
fourth period the contem-
porary period continues, in
greater detail, the search for clas-
sical Indian forms.
Indian religious architecture
in Guyana thus went through
phases parallel to the socio-cul-
tural context of their people,
from a displaced and an un-
settled people to one trying to
fit in with the prevailing soci-
ety; to an emerging people
searching for their ancestral cul-
tural forms. From next week, we
will highlight individual historic
Indian places of worship, giving
credence to the theoretical views
here outlined.
The National Trust of
Guyana undertakes to pre-
serve buildings of national,
architectural, historic and ar-
tistic interest for the benefit
of future generations. To this
end, we invite members of the
community to take an active
role in ensuring the survival
of Guyana's patrimony.

How to Administer

Medications continued

O VER the last few
weeks we have been
dealing with the
methods of administering
various types of medication.
We will close off this chapter
today by explaining how best
to deliver drugs into the eyes
and ears of patients. In all
likelihood, after the veteri-
narian has mad e diagno-
sis pertaining to the eye/ear
ailment, he/she will prescribe
the medicine that you will
have to introduce to the sick
animal at home. Unless you,
the owner, really can't get the
drops/solution into the ailing
eye/ear, only then would the
vet request that you come to
his/her clinic daily (or several
times daily) for the medica-
tion to be given by him/her to
the animal. Of course. this is
hard for all parties concerned.


Firstly, the vet would have
decided what intervention is
needed. For example, if there is
a bacterial infection, he/she
might prescribe antibiotic drops
or ointment. If there is a foreign
body (dust, grass seed, dirt,
etc,) in the eye, the vet might
decide that it can be easily
flushed out with a salt-water
solution (one teaspoon of salt to
a pint of boiled water). If the
foreign body is big enough to be
seen, it may be gently removed
with the help of a blunt twee-
zer (the type ladies use to pluck
their eyebrows). Or you may
moisten a cotton-tipped swab
(Q-Tip) and carefully swab the
offending material from the sur-
face of the eyeball or from wher-
ever it is lodged. Of course, if
the foreign bod. has penetrated
the surtace of the eehall iand is
stuck in the tissue, then the
i[Ill have to renimoe the trriiani.
probably under some lornm of

If it is liquid medication (e.g.
antibiotic drops) that you are
administering, I would suggest
that you use the thumb and in-
dex finger of the left hand to
manoeuvre the upper and lower
eyelids apart, thus exposing the
eyeball. Often with every drop,
the animal jerks ifs head, so you
might wish to wait until he has
settled down before administer-
ing the next drop, and'so on.
When administering an oint-
ment (which I hardly ever pre-
scribe for dogs'/cats' eyes), just
pull down the lower lid and ap-
ply the ointment to the inner
surface of the eyelid. Then rub
the eyelid gently over the eye-
ball to disperse the ointment.
By the way, do NOT us
any medicine (in the e) e i % which
is out-dated and which is not
specifict ll ljabelled FOR
Lasitl,. I nu~t n mention that
a prolonged u'e >'l anibiolic-, in

the eye or ear may lead conse-
quently to an upsurge of a fun-
gal infection.

I always advise that the ear
be cleaned out. first. Now, this
may be easier said than done.
Infected ears, or those that have
a foreign body stuck inside, are
painful. Some dogs react vi-
ciously to anyone going any-
where near their paining ears.
The problem is exacerbated by
the fact that the owner usually
only notices that there is an "ear
problem" when the condition is
well advanced. In such cases, it
may be wise for the vet to do
the first cleaiiing, before you be-
gin administering the drops/oint-
ment. In the case of the foreign
men e g

body stuck in the ear canal, only
the vet can take it out.
If the condition is not too
bad and the animal allows you
to clean the ear, then do so be-
fore inserting the drops/oint-
Some ear ointments come in
tubes with long nozzles which
are inserted into the vertical ca-
nal while holding the nozzle
parallel to the dog's head. Re-
strain your dog so the tip of the
tube won't accidentally lacerate

the thin skin of his ear canal.
Squeeze in a small amount of
ointment, or instill that amount
of drops of the solution pre-
scribed by the veterinarian.
As many infections also in,-
volve the horizontal ear canal, it
is important that the medicine
reaches this area, too. With
your fingers, rub the cartilage at
the base of his ears to disperse
the medicine. You should be able
to hear a squishy sound.

Please implement disease preventative measures
(vaccinations, routine, dewormings, monthly anli-
Heartworm medication, etc) and adopt-a-pet from the'
GSPCA's Animal Clinic and Shelter at Robb Street and
Orange Walk, if you have the wherewithal to care well for
the animals. Do not stray your unwanted pets, take them
to the GSPCA Clinic and Shelter instead. Also find out .
more about the Society's free spay and neutering
programme. If you see anyone being cruel to an animal,
get in touch with the Clinic and Shelter by calling 2"23-
