Dead is Colin Hopkinson,

CB&R Mining Company.
As a result, most of the ac-
tivities which usually mark Pork

celled and the celebration this
year has been converted into a
day of reflection.
Prime Minister Samuel
Hinds, in Bartica for the event,
visited the family of the de-
ceased, who leaves behind a
wife and two children.
Noting the prevalence of
criminal activities within the
mining sector, Prime Minis-
ter Hinds said it is the re-
sponsibility of all to work in
harmony with the Security
Forces, especially the
Guyana Police Force.

stay focused on the reason for
leaving their families and going

This appeal was made in
light of the prevalence of HIV/

ing from the social behaviour of
some of the miners.

A S ARMED criminals continued their brazen acts
of robbery at business places, private homes

siginficant statement came from Crime Chief Henry
Greene in his capacity as acting Police
Mr Greene, deputising for Police Commissioner
Felix Austin, did not conceal his anger when he spoke
of corrupt cops who were contributing to the
challenging problems facing the Guyana Police Force
(GPF) in its battle against criminality.
Sharing a platform with Home Affairs Minister
Gail Teixeira, at Monday's formal opening of the 16th
GPF Junior Officers Course, the Crime Chief pointed
to what has long been an issue of utmost concern
among lawmakers and the general public-crooks,
corrupt cops in the GPF. .

equipment for the GPF.
"Among us", declared Greene, "are some bandits
and we recognize that we have to put them where
they belong", as he disclosed that currently
approximately eighty policemen were before the
courts on various criminal offences.
This is a matter that certainly requires the
most urgent and serious consideration for "enemies"
located right within" the nation's police service.
We fully share the agony of honest, committed and
valiant cops who have to cope, at times under very
trying circumstances, with the problems and,
challenges that come also from the appropriate ac-
tions involving, variously, the association representing
members of the GPF, the Police Service Commission,
Director of Public Prosecution and the Minister of

effective policing to curb the wave.of armed robberies.

announcement Friday by the government that an

meaning when, following
separate claims, without
evidence, by Secretary of State

a leading American tele-

"this is not the policy of the
United States government..." (sic)
Of course, McCormack
and other spokespersons for the
Bush administration should know
that for many years now succes-

ton, including that of President
Jack Kennedy, have been associ-
ated with the politics of assassi-

of a Cuba-Venezuela axis to

Such allegations, now
being expressed more frequently,
though without any supporting

evidence, should be of concern to
governments of the Caribbean
Community, all of which are on
record as favouring close and
mutually satisfactory relations
with the administrations in
Havana and Caracas.
Cuba and Venezuela are
not only among the founding
members of the Association of
Caribbean States (ACS)-an
institution spawned by initial
initiatives of Caricom.
These are countries with
which CARICOM states have
been strengthening bilateral
relations that cover some vital
social and economic sectors. The

That credibility problem
must now be related to the
allegations from Defence
Secretary Rumsfeld and
Secretary of State Rice about
involvement of Castro's Cuba
and Chavez's Venezuela in
destabilisation problems for
governments in the Americas.
If the Bush
administration does possess
evidence of Chavez and
Castro as "troublemakers"
in Latin American-
politics, then it should share
some of it with allies of the
USA within CARICOM and
the wider Organisation of
American States (OAS)-
rather than exercising
covert pressures on

Is the Rio Group reflecting the
state of politics in Latin America?
By Odeen Ishmael
THE annual summit of the
Rio Group of countries should
have been held on August 25-
26 in the Argentine mountain
resort town of Bariloche.
However, because only 9 of the
19 Presidents signalled their
intention to attend, the
meeting was postponed and is
now expected to be
rescheduled for December.
The decision to postpone
the summit followed
Argentina, Brazil and Guyana
who currently are members of
the Rio Group "troika".
Argentina is the temporary chair
of the Group while Guyana will
be the site of the summit next
The Rio Group leaders were
expected to use this summit to
coordinate their positions with
respect to November's fourth
Summit of the Americas for
which they are still hoping to
present a minimum joint
position on the agenda. In their
place, the Group's Foreign
Ministers met in Bariloche on
August 25-26 to iron out agenda
matters and other issues expected
to be raised at the Summit of the
Americas. This larger forum, to
be attended by 34 heads of state
and government, will also take
place in Argentina.
The Rio Group summit
would also have touched on
issues to be discussed at another
upcoming forum the summit
of the Community of South
American Nations scheduled
for Brazil at the end of
September. Eleven of the Group's
members belong to the South
As a collective effort to help
bring an end to the then existing
conflict in Central America and
also for consultation on Latin
American affairs, the Rio Group
was established in 1986. Its
members are the 16 Spanish-
speaking Central and South
American countries, as well as,
Brazil, Dominican Republic, and
Guyana as the Caricom
Clearly, the postponement
of the summit is a reflection on
the state of domestic politics in
the Latin American region. Of
the 10 leaders who signalled they
could not have attended, many
are currently taken up with
pressing political and economic
issues at home. For them, the
domestic agenda is obviously
regarded as being of greater
In Argentina itself, President
Nestor Kirchner is trying to
strengthen his position in the up-
coming congressional election in
October and is very busy
organising his Peronist allies in
Then in Peru, President
Alejandro Toledo is currently
confronting another political
crisis, this time trying his best
to handle one resulting from a
recent cabinet reshuffle including
the removal of two Foreign
Ministers in two days.
Colombia, with the
government fighting guerrilla
rebels, and Nicaragua, whose
president is battling
congressional opponents trying
to oust him, continue to
experience unsettled times.
Media reports indicate that the
governments of those countries
feel that their presidents should
not attend meetings abroad at
such a time.
Furthermore, there are
growing pains in Ecuador and
Bolivia, both of which are facing
crises of varying proportions.
Ecuador recently removed yet
another president after popular
street demonstrations, but his
replacement is facing opposition
in the nation's oil belt where
people are complaining that they
are not seeing economic benefits
from the windfall resulting from
the rising prices for Ecuadorian

following removal of presidents
in relatively short periods also
as a result of popular street
protests. Added to this, the
country is now taken up with a
bruising presidential election
And over in Brazil,
President Lula da Silva, even
though he had planned on going
to Bariloche, is struggling to
defend his government from
allegations of corruption,
including a cash-for-votes
scheme in his nation's Congress.
The current unsettled
state of affairs in some South
American countries is
certainly a sign of political
instability. But at the same
time, it can also be regarded
as the teething pains of the
process which was re-injected
in many countries of the region
only over the past 15 years
or so. It is possible that the
traditional "ballot box"
democracy is not viewed as
being sufficient for the
purpose of good governance.
Greater grass-root awareness
of politics and economics -
which is a form of
"participatory" democracy -
has led to popular uprisings
resulting in changes of
leaderships and governments
even before elections are held.
Since the successions have
constitutional norms, this
trend may be seen as a further
evolution of the democratic

The Digicel sponsorship saga
An thony Lucky of Trinidad

back at the West Indies
Cricket Board (WICB) for
criticising him for giving
Prime Minister Keith
Mitchell a copy of his review

deal between the Board and
In this latest development
in the ongoing saga .over the
secretly signed 2004 WICB-
Digicel sponsorship contract
and subsequent media leaks
on aspects of the review
committee's report, Justice
Lucky yesterday asked:
"What is wrong in my
making available to Prime
Minister Keith Mitchell a
copy of the sponsorship
review committee's report in
his capacity as chairman of
Ministerial Committee on
Cricket, with the
understanding that it must be
treated as a yet unpublished
document to be discussed by
the Executive Board of the
WICB on September 4?"
Lucky, who was appointed
in June to head the committee,
along with Avondale Thomas
and Gregory Georges of
Antigua, was responding
yesterday to a press
statement from the WICB
stating that "it is appalled"
that he "has seen it fit to
distribute a report which had
been commissioned by the
board to Prime Minister
"While understanding the
interest that the West Indian
people must have in the
findings of the report", said
the WICB in a release to the
media Friday. "it is
unfortunate that this type of
distribution should be made
in advance of the directors of
the WICB having had an
opportunity to consider the

But Justice Lucky yesterday
rejected the board's
"contention" that he had
improper by making available
a copy of our report to Prime
Minister Mitchell, with whom
the committee had a meeting
during its mandated review.
"What I would like to
know", he added, "is who
authorised the press release
criticising me for giving Prime
Minister Mitchell a copy?
"I am not aware that there
was any meeting of the WICB
Board of Directors or even
some of them to address this
issue. I am not aware that the
press statement was
endorsed by the new
President of the WICB, Mr
"The CEO (Chief Executive
Officer, Roger Brathwaite)
cannot issue such a
authorisation", said Lucky,
"I would now await an
official response from the
scheduled September 4
meeting of the WICB's
Executive Board on the
status of the review
committee's report and
related issues before making
any further comment".
Lucky had officially
presented to President
Gordon on August 15, two
signed copies of the
committee's report. as well
as, his own dissenting
"declaration" that. among
other factors. qIcestions

Digicel contract. He hlas
also been critical
of elements behaving, he
said, as if the WICB "is a
or private club".
Prime Minister Mitchell,
reached by telephone in Port-
of-Spain yesterday, said he
was "surprised by the
criticism of Justice Lucky to
give me, on a conditional
basis, a copy of the review
committee's report. I have not
yet read it and I intend to
make it available shortly to
Prime Minister (Kenny)
Anthony (of St. Lucia) in his

Effort to get a comment
on the issue from Mr
Gordon was unsuccessful.
Earlier last week, he had
stated, in response to
questions, that he would
prefer to avoid any public
comment relating to the
report until the scheduled
September 4 meeting.
A spokesman for the
WICB's Secretariat in St.

that it was "not necessary to

Examining other pressing
issues, the Ministers debated at
length strategies for the "war on
poverty" which they declared
should be the chief agenda item
for the Summit of the Americas.
They agreed that Rio Group
nations would jointly back new
initiatives to fight poverty as a
step for further strengthening
democracy in the region. In-this
regard, they unanimously agreed
that the support for

Belize's request for admission to

Outdated laws pose a problem
By Faizool Deo
The Guyana Geology and Mines Commis-
sion (GGMC), in observance of Mining
Week, August 21 to 27, under the theme
"Developing Sustainable Mining II," staged a
three-day exhibition at the National Museum.
The exhibition, which had as its main agenda the promoting
of mining and making it as environmentally friendly as possible,
housed a number of exhibits.
These ranged from booths from the Guyana Tourism Au-
thority (GTA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the
Guyana Forestry and others who tried to promote mining in
an environmentally friendly way.
Seeta Mohamed, Public Communications Coordinator of
Omai Gold Mines, -who organised the exhibition, told the
Guyana Chronicle that with the technologies at hand, it is now
possible to mine in such a way that there is very little impact
on the environment.
She stated that her company is now mining with the envi-
ronment in mind.
"Environment is the focus of Omai's operations so as we
mine we ensure that the method of mining is in keeping with
Mohamed said that the cautious practices by her company
have been rewarded by the world monitoring body.
"We have achieved our International Organisation for
Standardisation (ISO) 2001 certification. To achieve that
they don't only look at cyanide, but every thing is taken
into consideration, the distribution of every waste material.
Education also plays an important part, how does an em-
ployee know what to do when he is doing his daily work,
what is involved. So you have to be at your best"
Mohamed stated that her company was the third in the world
to receive the ISO certification. Omai's parent company Cambior
was the first company to receive the certificate in 2000.
She noted that overall the exhibition was to promote envi-
ronmental best practices, indicating that the exhibits were all
geared for that specific purpose.
One company at the exhibition, GE, highlighted ways of re-
ducing the effect of mining on the environment.
Clairinda Heshusis, GE representative in Guyana and
Suriname, said that her company has worked on ways of
reducing pollution from mining.
"In Guyana we are strong in dust control chemicals, there is
a lot of dust after the bauxite comes
down after the kiln. so at Aroaima %%e
use our chemicals to bind the dust
Heshusis stated that her company
has also worked on after pollution
and has successfully lested chemicals
which can purify the contanunated
"The water that leases the gold
mines has high turbidity, imudd% i. and
the people do%\n stream complain
about the pollution. With our chenu-

should be doing in its idle moments.
Worrying was the brain's job a few million years ago. How

what huge winged creature planned to have us for dinner? Now we
can be reasonably sure that foraging in the supermarket won't kill
us and that most predators are only figuratively out for our blood.

In 'The Wisdom Of Security', Alan Watts sums up our dilemma:
"The brain is in pursuit of happiness, and because the brain is much
more concerned about the future than the present, it conceives hap-
piness as the guarantee of an indefinitely long future of happiness.
Yet the brain also knows that it does not have an indefinite long
future, so to be happy it must try to crowd all the pleasures of
paradise and eternity into the span of a few years"
Amen. If the survey goes badly, I'll probably be inconsolable. I
could never find another. house like this one. I'm not even sure I
could stand the anxiety of house hunting again.
Sure you could. Because no matter how you feel when the sur-
vey results come in, you won't feel that way for as long as you
imagined. Researchers have found we're notoriously bad at predicting
the intensity of our emotional responses. Anticipation is a large part
of any experience, and the brain knows this. It can rush in like an
over-protective parent to shield us from anxiety, in the process of
spoiling our fun.
I've always been a worrier. Is this just my karma, or can I do
something about it?
Even if you inherited a few more worry genes than your
neighbour, you can still do a lot to retrain your mind. For starters,
remind yourself that change and uncertainty.are facts of life. Reframe
your attitude, and you may even start to don't wince welcome
the unknown. Mystery, like variety, gives spice to life.
"Welcome the unknown?" Not likely, I'm risk averse.
And proud of it, it seems. Pema Chodron, a Buddhist nun with
a very hip attitude, doesn't mince words on this subject. In 'The
Places That Scare You', she says: "We can ask ourselves this ques-
tion: 'Do .I .prefer to grow up and relate to life directly, or do I
choose to live and die in fear?'" If you want to live a happy life,
you have to dive in.
COULD YOU BE MORE SPECIFIC?
Figure out if your fears are real, or you're fretting o\er what
you imagine might happen.
Maybe I can't do anything about the survey. But if the deal
goes through. I'll ha e plenty to worry about mortgage, neighbours,

I don't worry so much when I'm really absorbed or feeling on
top of things. Competence gives us a sense of control. That's why
learning a new skill or mastering something once avoided feels so
good. Post 9/11, we're all looking for some sort of hedge against
insecurity. But all we can really do is tend to what's in front of us.
Years ago, I saw a slogan that speaks to the senselessness of in-
dulging in endless what ifs:

Fellini and Mastroianni, like
most great artists, were not fol-

or method of institutional art,
but investors and believers in an
individual, intuitive, and there-
fore highly effective approach to
art-making. This approach was
far from lawless, reckless, un-
structured, etc, (as some reac-
tionary critics would have us
believe), and came to define part
of the creative genius of the
1960s, one of the greatest cre-
ative decades of the earth's his-
tory, when film-making, paint-

among young photographers
who hope for interesting
shots of famous people, etc.,

clubs all night. But what is
important is Mastroianni's
character. His good natured

am in an awful fix! My best friend is getting
married and wants to make me her maid of
honour. Normally, I'd be ecstatic, except for
one thing-I can't stand her fiance. The man she
is marrying is emotionally abusive, and there is
a distinct possibility he's cheated on her more
than once, though I do not have concrete
proof of this.
The engagement itself surprised me as she expressed doubts
about him, particularly the issue of his fidelity. I spoke to her then
about my 'feelings, and the conversation nearly ended our friend-
ship! To make matters worse, she forced me into agreeing by ask-
ing me in public in front of others.
She knows I am not a gossip and would never do anything to
make her uncomfortable. I could not decline graciously or even put
off an answer. I've spent more time getting to know her fiance, hop-
ing to seewhat she sees in him, but each time I've come away more
disgustediwith this man and more convinced she is making the most
horrible decision of her life.
Genevieve, your best friend is forcing you to be a hypo-
crite. If you stand up for her at her wedding, you are saying:
"I accept that these two should be man and wife and spend
their lives together." No! Youl don't accept that! You don't
believe that at all!
If you accept, she will see you as a willing participant in her
choice and come to you as an avenue of consolation. Only by de-
clining her offer can you prevent playing the hypocrite for the length
of her marriage.

he following statement was made by
Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, the man who
discovered the existence of bacteria,
blood cells and human sperms on a microscope
which, incidentally, he invented himself almost
300 years ago.
"I am in the habit of rubbing my teeth with salt in the
morning, then rinsing my mouth with water, and, often after
eating, of cleaning my back teeth with a toothpick as well as
rubbing them hard with a cloth, wherefore my teeth, back and
front, remain as clean and white that only a few people of my
age of 51 years can compare. Also, when I rub my gums with
hard salt, they will not bleed."
Even before there were dentists or toothbrushes, this
Dutch biologist and inventor recognized the relationship be-
tween oral hygiene and periodontitis (gum disease).
Bleeding on brushing is the well-accepted and primary
sign of gum disease. While texts describe the difference
between health and disease in the gums on the basis of
colour, texture, shape and adhesion to the tooth, and the
position of the gums on the teeth, these are very subjective
signs, difficult for a patient in a poorly lit home environment
to observe, and also quite subjective for the health
The absence of bleeding is, in most instances, a sign of
health, although it is acknowledged that deep pocketing be-

structional process seems to be the most effective method of
achieving long-term improvement in oral health care.
When studying motives for seeking preventive care, one
tends to focus on four factors in motivation: belief in sus-
ceptibility, seriousness, effectiveness of activities and the im-
portance of dental problems as predictors in involvement in
the management of health care, particularly when consider-
ing brushing habits.
Only a small number of persons see themselves capable
of suffering from gum disease because of it being a chronic
condition. In fact, usually, no one knows that they are suf-
fering from gum disease until it's in a relatively advanced
The majority of people have a toothbrush and use it at
least once a day, which is sufficient to satisfy personal beauty,
in brushing and flossing etc.
Bleeding is a fearful thing for many people but
demonstration by the dentist will show that this is a
sign of disease which, in most cases, can be overcome
by simple measures. Timing and the mechanics of
cleaning can be assisted by the dentist (or dental nurse)
who can help you to find the right techniques for brush-
ing, flossing and gum massage.
The contemporary patient should accept that a reason-
able level of personal responsibility is necessary for their
wellbeing. Achievement and maintenance of health is seen
as a cooperative programme between the individual and the
health care provider.
The modern preventive regimen includes abstaining
from unhealthy practices as well as practising those mea-
sures which are thought to improve personal health.

That cruelty, the judge
found, had so endangered the
woman's mental health, she'd
had to seek psychiatric help.
It so transpired that follow-
ing their marriage, the husband,
who was inordinately jealous of
her. would, rather than take her
out himself, follow her around
instead whenever she went out
to party to see whether she had
gone alone or with a man.
On occasion, when his in-
vestigative tactics failed to bear
fruit, he would resort to strip-
ping her in public and beating
her. Yet, during the hearing of
the divorce proceedings, he pro-
fessed to love her.
"I want my wife to come
back home." he plead.
To which the judge replied:
"Your protestation that you
desire your wife to return is
only a sham."
He was represented by Mr
Clarence Hughes, and she by

The facts of the matter, as
narrated by the Chief Justice in
his judgment, are that the peti-
tioner (in this case the wife) and
the respondent were married in
October 1961, some five years
after they began living together.
They had five children, three of
whom were born out of wed-
According to Justice
Boilers, the respondent was of
a jealous nature. As such, the
marriage was never a happy
one. Over the years that they
lived together, he said, the re-
spondent had constantly ac-
cused the petitioner of being
unfaithful and with various men.
There were frequent quar-
rels, and on several occasions he
had even threatened her. He
would also beat and or other-
wise publicly humiliate her,
which he did on more than one
occasion. It was as a result of
the respondent's mistreatment,
the judge said, that the peti-
tioner was forced to seek psy-
chiatric help. In addition, it was
said of the respondent that al-
though he provided his family
with a reasonable homestead, he
gave the petitioner very little

complying with the order, he
told the petitioner that she and
the children could go and live at

Boilers held that:
(i) While cruelty was al-'
ways a question of fact, that
having listened to both parties,
he felt that although there was
no conduct proved which caused
danger to life or limb, the con-
duct of the respondent was of
such as to either endanger the
petitioner's mental health or to
give rise to reasonable appre-
hension of such danger. This
being the case. he was, accord-
ingly, guilty of cruelty.
(ii) Corroboration of the
petitioner's evidence of acts of
cruelty, although desirable, was
(iii) Although the peti-
tioner continued to submit to
cohabitation during the period
of time that the acts of cruelty
were taking place, she had no al-
ternative because of her indigent
state, and, taking all the circum-
stances into account, her contin-
ued presence in the matrimonial
home could not be said to be
condonation of the respondent's

must be viewed not only from
the angle of the deserting
spouse, but also from the atti-
tude of the deserted spouse in
relation to the marriage, and that
the petitioner had shown that
the respondent's conduct was
against her will. His protesta-
tion that he desired his wife's
return was only a sham, the
Chief Justice had said.
Reviewing the evidence led
during the hearing. Justice
Boilers noted that the wife's pe-
tition for the dissolution of her
marriage to the husband, a com-
mission agent and businessman,
was on the grounds of cruelty
and malicious desertion.
He observed that the mar-
riage, in the first instance, had
started off on a wrong footing,
since the parties had lived and
cohabited together as man and
wife for a period of five years.
Three children were born of that
union before the marriage took
place on the 28"' of October
1961. There was also the little
matter of the wide age gap be-
tween the petitioner and her
husband. She was 21 and he 34.
Before marriage, there were
frequent quarrels, merely be-
cause of the respondent's jeal-
ousy. But he promised he would
marry her, and that he would
On marriage however, the
parties never lived happily to-
gether, even though they begot
two more children. He kept her
at home and whenever she did
go out, he would follow her to
watch her movements. He gave
her very little money to run the
home, and would accuse her of
adultery. In the first year of
marriage, he beat and kicked her.
He would also taunt her
whenever she asked for money,
and often told her: "Why you

Once, in 1962, while the pe-
titioner was talking to a gentle-
man she'd met quite by chance,

that he was merely talking with

in a fit of anger, tore down his

her in public .

Reading and You
1. An author can either be straightforward in his
writing or he can encourage you to use your higher
order reading skills.
2. A good reader reads with ease so that words,
phrases, clauses and sentences soon get con-
nected and allow him/her scope to query what the
writer is saying.
3. A good reader probes writing for hidden mean-
ing most often found in specially written phrases.
Hidden meaning is deeper meaning. Deeper
meaning comes with the application of deeper
4. A good writer wants you to understand every-
thing he writes. He also wants to earn your inter-
est and let you have an opinion about what you
read. In doing so he tries to make you form pic-
tures in your mind.

Use each boldface word once.
The day dawned dark and gloomy, and the weather
was a preview of things to come. When Emil
went out of the barn, he saw a tendril of smoke
curl from under the door. Racing inside, he found
his father attempting to beat out a fire that had
started with the overturned lantern. Only after the
two had put out the flames did Emil see the blood
on his father's hands. Apparently, the broken lan-
tern had cut the farmer badly. The loss of blood
had made the hand devoid of feeling, so that, in
the excitement, the farmer had not even noticed the
deep wound. Now he grew suddenly dizzy and col-
lapsed on the floor. Filled with apprehension, Emil
rushed his father to the doctor.
The farmer was wounded at the juncture between
his thumb and forefinger. A translucent piece of
skin covered the wound, so that blood looked even
darker than it normally did. The farmer's hand was
calloused by years of arduous labour; the sun
had made even his palms swarthy. It was there-
fore difficult for the doctor to find the edges of the
wound. When she did, she pulled them back with
a retractor and cleansed the.wound thoroughly.
Then she bandaged the wound with a piece of
Throughout the ordeal at the doctor's office, Emil
behaved impassively, never revealing the anguish
that he actually felt. Only when it was all over did
he turn a rapt face to the doctor, so carried away
by emotion that he was barely able to say thank
you. It was a poignant moment, and the doctor

Division of Fractions
When you multiply 6 by 2 you get 12. What you are
really doing is doubling 6.
12 can also be arrived at when you divide 6 by Y2.
How can this be? Just look at what you really do
when you divide 6 by the fraction 1/2.

5 X 2

45 X 5 X 4-
27/5 = 5 2/5
7. Find 5 times the product of 5 2/5 and 25/1
Let's get the rule in here. To divide by a fraction
you must upturn that fraction and multiply.
See what you will get otherwise when you divide 6
by 2 instead if multiplying 6 by 2 as you should have
6+2 = 3
This is wrong.
You cannot divide to get the answer to the problem
6 + 1/2.
Remember the rule to go by. Whenever you have
to divide a number by a fraction, upturn that
fraction and multiply.
12 + % = 12X 2
Here is another.
20 + 1/5
2 + 4/5

was because they see it as their duty as responsible journalists
to share their experiences with folks back home in soumhermBra-
zil where they are from, many of whom, like. them, know very
little or nothing at all about Guyana.
Lima, whose forte is sports, pointed out however that
it was not only those living in the south a ho did not know
much about Guyana but those living in other parts of the
country as well, hence their willingness and resolve to un-
dertake the task.
Asked how they found the trip from Lethem to
Georgetown, which they did by minibus, Murara, who has
a better command of English than her partner said: "The
journey was quite hard because the road is broke in the
middle," meaning that the road is in such disrepair it is
near impassable in some places, particularly with the on-
set of the seasonal rains this time of year.
She said it was precisely because of the poor condition of
the Georgetown to Lethem road that the bus they had initially
joined ditched its passengers after the first six kilometers. This
caused the two of them to have to walk some three kilometers
before they could catch another vehicle which, thankfully, brought
them, without further incident, to the city.
These minor incidents aside, Murara, who thought Guyana
would make a very good tourist destination, said their sojourn
here, brief though it was, was as exciting as it was enlightening.
"It certainly it was a good experience...[though] very different
in many respects from Brazil."
They were particularly taken with Selina's, the little
eating place out on the foreshore just off Vlissengen Road,
where they had the opportunity of sampling something of
the local cuisine, and were looking forward to savouring yet
more before leaving for Suriname, which they planned do-
ing last Tuesday.
Lima, who is an average footballer, said he had two regrets,
one of which was not having the time to enjoy a game or two at
the National Park. The other was not being able to visit the infa-
mous 'Jonestown' to see what has become of it now close to 27
years after the tragedy.
The pair left their home in Curitiba, capital ef4the State
of Parana some two weeks ago. They first flew 'ia& as,
then boarded a bus which took them to Boa Vis On ar-
rival there, they caugl, another which brought' to

Claws and Teeth
The Respiratory System
What is a plant?
A living organism that, unlike an animal, cannot move vol-
untarily has the ability to synthesize food from carbon
dioxide, possesses cellulose cell walls, and lacks cen-
trosomes, specialized sense organs, and digestive, ner-
vous, and circulatory systems.
How plants make food
Every living creature needs food in order to survive. How
do they get their food? Animals depend on plants and
other animals for their food while plants make their own
Some weeks ago we learned that the animals with hooves
are called ungulates. Well, today we are going to look at
another group of animals. This large family of mammals
is the carnivores. They are so called because they live
mainly on meat. They are hunters. Their weapons are
their claws and teeth. See the picture below with a leop-
ard, a typical carnivore, and its kill.
We are all familiar with the cat. Well, the cat family.is an
important branch of the carnivores. This family includes,
with others, the lion, tiger, leopard, jaguar, puma, lynx
and both wild and the domesticated cat. Many in this
group live right here in Guyana such as the tiger, jaguar,
and puma. .
These mammals called carnivores have a special kind of
claw, called retractile claw, which can be withdrawn or
put out at will. Check your cat at home for the move-
ments of their claws. See representations of the Cat family
retracted claw and the extended claw below.

food. How do plants make their own food? You have
learnt that roots of plants usually take in water and cer-
tain minerals of the soil, and also there leave take in diox-
ide from the air around them. What do plants do with
these substances to change them onto food?
Plants use the energy from he sun to make their food.
There is a substance in the green leaves called chloro-
phyll. This chlorophyll gives the green color arid also
traps some of the light energy from the sun. Witha com-
bination of energy, light, carbon dioxide and water, the
plant is able to make sugar and oxygen. During the pro-
cess, excess oxygen produced is given off into theatmo-
sphere. When green leaves use sunlight to manufacture
food for the plants is called photosynthesis. The word
photosynthesis can be broken up into two parts; photo
an synthesis. Photo involves light and synthesis means
putting together.' This process of photosynthesis can be
written as follows:
carbon dioxide + water + sunlight --'
sugar + oxygen
Next week we will continue our lesson on plants.
Carnivores all have very good teeth, with a pair of sharp
ones on each jaw called canines. Canines are especially
designed for biting and tearing. (Do not be afraid. We
also have canine teeth. Look in the mirror for the pointed
tooth in either side of your jaw.) See the drawing of the
lion's jaw below. See the cat's skull and forepaw below.
See how the leopard uses his claw. It is an example of a

He had a violent fit of trembling, and then sunk into his

look towards Rachael. Seen across the dim candle with
his moistened eyes, she looked as if she had a glory.
shining around her head. He could have believed she
had. He did believe it, as the noise without shook the
windows, rattled at the door below, and went about the
house clambouring and lamenting.
"When she gets better, Stephen, 'tis to be hoped she'll
leave thee to thyself again, and do thee no more hurt.
Anyways we Will hope so now. And now I shall keep
silence, for I want thee to sleep."
He closed his eyes, more to please her than to rest his
weary head; but by slow degrees as he listened to the
great noise of the loom, or even into the voices of the
day (his own included) saying what had been really said.
Even this imperfect consciousness faded away at last,
and he dreamed a long, troubled dream.
He thought that he and some one on whom his heart
had long been: set but she was not Rachael, and that
surprised him, even in the midst of his imaginary happi-
ness stood: in the church being married. While the
ceremony was performing, and while he recognized
among the witnesses some whom he knew to be living,
and many whom he knew to be dead, darkness came
on, succeeded by the shining of a tremendous light. It
broke from one line in the table of commandments at the
altar, and illuminated the building with the words.
They were sounded through the church too, as if they
were voices in the fiery letters. Upon this, the whole ap-
pearance before him and around him changed, and noth-
ing was left as it had been, but himself and the clergy-
man. They stood in the daylight before a crowd so vast,
that if all the people in the world could have been brought
together into one space, they could not have looked, he
thought, more numerous; and they all abhorred him, and
there was not one pitying or friendly eye among the mil-
lions that were fastened on his face. He stood on a
raised stage, under his own loom; and looking up at the
shape the loom toqk, and hearing the burial service dis-

The following passage was taken from "My Family and
Other Animals" by Gerald Durrell. Read it to discover
the sequencing technique the writer uses.
Winter came to the island gently as a rule. The sky was
still clear, the sea blue and calm, and the sun warm. But
there would be an uncertainty in the air. The gold and
scarlet leaves that littered the countryside in great drifts
whispered and chuckled among themselves, or took ex-
perimental runs from place to place, rolling like coloured
hoops among the trees. It was as if they were practis-
ing something, preparing for something, and they would
discuss it excitedly in rusty voices as they crowded
round the tree-trunks. The birds, too, congregated in little
groups, puffing out their feathers, twittering thoughtfully.
The whole air was one of expectancy, like a vast audi-
ence waiting for the certain to go up. Then one morning
you threw back the shutters and looked down over the
olive-trees, across the blue bay to the russet mountains
of the mainland and became aware that winter had ar-
rived, for each mountain peak would be wearing a tat-
tered skull-cap of snow. Now the air of expectancy grow
In a few days small white clouds started their winter pa-
rade, trooping across the sky, soft and chubby, long, 1an-
guorous, and unkempt, or small and crisp as feathers,
and driving them before it, like an ill-assorted flockl of
sheep, would come the wind. This was warm at fist,
and came in gentle gusts, rubbing through the olive-groves
so that the leaves trembled and turned silver with excite-
ment, rocking the cypresses so that they undulated gen-
tly, and stirring the dead leaves into gay, swirling little
dances that died as suddenly as they began. Playfully
it ruffled the feathers on the sparrows' backs, so that they
shuddered and fluffed themselves; and it leapt without
warning at the gulls, so that they were stopped in mid-
air and had to curve their white wings against it. Shut-
ters started to bang and doors chattered suddenly in their
frames. But still the sun shone, the sea remained placid,
and the mountains sat complacently, summer bronzed,
wearing their splintered snow hats.
For a week or so the wind played with the island, pat-
ting it, humming to itself among the bare branches. Then
there was a lull, a few days' strange calm; suddenly,
when you least expected it, the wind would be back. But
it was a changed wind, a mad, hooting, bellowing wind
that leapt down on the island and tried to blow it into

sometime later to see whether
she would emerge from the cin-

Blair did go to the cinema, but
he did not sit with the petitioner.
That evening when the pe-

elsewhere and not to the cinema.
She replied hotly that he could
ask his friend Blair. whereupon
he accused her of being friendly
with Blair and beat her with a

matter to the police, who took
her to the hospital where she

respondent accused the peti-

with a male neighbour.
This she denied of course,
but the respondent did not be-
lieve a word that she said, and
proceeded to beat her. That very
evening, the respondent, after
threatening to kill the peti-

neighbour with a cutlass.

given the deficiency, at that time,
of tutors in that subject.

that of Assistant Mistress, Home

THIS the third in our
series of articles on
historic Hindu and
Muslin places of worship in
Guyana, we examine the 19th
Century 'Shivala' or 'Shiv
In his book, Temples and
Mosques: An Illustrated Study
of East Indian Places of Worship
in Guyana (1980), Karna
Bahadur Singh describes the
four surviving 191" Century
Hindu temples in Guyana.
These temples, he says, "share
a remarkable similarity in
functional and architectural
terms". In terms of function,
they are all Shivalas or Shiv
Mandirs, meaning they are
dedicated to the Hindu God,
In terms of architecture,
these early temples meet the
basic form derived directly from
India, unlike the Hindu temples
-of the early to mid 201h Century.
-- The four 19"' Century Shiv
Mandirs described by Singh are
found at Versailles (on the West
Bank of Demerara), Mon
Repos (on the East Coast of
o Demerara), Port Mourant (on
the Corentyne Coast) and
P Woodley Park ( on the West
These simple early
temples do not compare with
the complex of inter-related
forms with elaborate
sculptural motifs found in the
typical Indian temple of the
19'" Century. Rather, they
meet the characteristics of the
small temples (shrines)
found in the small Indian
village. Thus, we see that
these early temples built by
the indentured servants
during the last two decades of
the 19th Century exhibit
their remembrance of things
The architectural feature of
the. Shivalas, says Singh,
authentically reflect the
essential concept of the Hindu
religious structure. The Shivala
comprises basically a small
structure with a single chamber
(the garbha griha) topped by a
tapering spire (the shikhara)
sometimes pyramidal. The
garbha griha is the sanctum
sanctorum, or holiest place of a
temple, in which the sacred
image or other emblem of the
scared deity is enshrined. .
The Shikhara is the
tower (albeit small in
Guyana's case) that draws
attention to the exact
location of the garbha griha.
In Indian medieval temple
architecture where there are
numerous shikharas, that
over the garbha griha would
be the tallest and most
decorated. The garbha griha
would contain the
of Shiva, an oval black stone,
seen as a phallic symbol.
These small and simple
temples, basically a shrine,
would have no place for housing
the congregation, unlike that of
other religions. The devotees
would stand outside the
structure with no defined area
for worshipping. This
contrasts, as we shall see in the
next talk, with the early Muslim
place of worship.
Traditionally, the interiors
of Hindu temples would have
little natural light and the
Shivalas at Port Mourant and
Woodley Park meet this
principle, unlike those at
Versailles and Mon Repos that
introduced windows in their
This innovation would
continue in Hindu temple
construction in British Guiana,
and a true tradition of Hindu
religious architecture did not
emerge in the following century.
We will examine this
"dislocation in tradition" in a

thought that I should

very important subject

use and abuse.
Antibiotics are an integral
part of the arsenal that veteri-
narians have against infections.
But, as is the case with every
weapon, there can be a negative
reaction in its use. It is bad

proach a drug store and ask for

ticular malady that people want
cured. You ask the purchaser of
these capsules what he/she is.

Let me share with you some
information about antibiotics.
Antibiotics are extracts of
basic plants such as moulds and
fungi. They are capable of de-
stroyingor inhibiting the growth
of some microorganisms that
cause disease Nowadays, scien-
tists working in some of the
huge climcal laboratories can use
the basic nucleus of an an'ibi-
onc grown in special cultures as
a base on which h to atach some
side chains of compounds. thus
producing a whole new palette
of synthetic antibiotics, which
may have a broader spectrum of
activities relative to fighting
Antibiotics fall into general
categories, based on the way
they interact with germs. Those
that are bacteriostatic inhibit
the growth of microorganisms
but don't kill them outright.
Bactericidal drugs destroy the
Bacteria are also classified
according to their ability to
cause disease. Pathogenic bacte-
ria are capable of producing a
particular illness or infection.
Non-pathogenic bacteria live
on (or within) the host, but
don't cause illness, under nor-
mal circumstances. They are re-
ferred to as normal flora (bac-
teria belong to the plant world).
Some of them produce sub-
stances necessary to the well-
being of the host. For example,
bacteria in the bowel synthesise
