there was still loud music play-

By Delatia Isles
THE government has allo-
cated $30M to install 100 cul-
verts in South Ruimveldt
Gardens to help ease flooding
in that section of the city,
President Bharrat Jagdeo an-
nounced yesterday during a
visit to the community.
His announcement came as
he continued a hectic round of
visits to communities in the city
after a packed tour to the West
Demerara on Friday when he
addressed pressing concerns of
His visits in the city yester-
day took him to several wards
in west, south and east
Georgetown, culminating in a
check on pumping stations cen-
tral to draining flood waters
from the capital.
In South Ruimveldt Gar-
dens, he informed the residents
that the money will be made
available to the Mayor and City
Council and works will com-
mence in a month's time as the
rainy season is fast approach-
Residents raised concerns
over the state of their playfield
and were further reassured
when Mr. Jagdeo declared that
he was prepared to give the
money to them to repair the
ground if they can come up
with a plan and present it to
With him on the round of
visits were several City Coun-
cil officials, including Deputy
Mayor, Mr. Robert Williams,
Town Clerk, Ms. Beulah Wil-
liams and City Engineer, Ms.
Beverly Johnson.

Also on the tour was Presi-
dent of the Georgetown Cham-
ber of Commerce and Industry
(GCCI), Mr. Gerry Gouveia.
Mr. Jagdeo announced that
$2.5M has been allocated to be-
gin drainage works in South
Ruimveldt, and added that more
works from Penny Lane to
Greenheart Streets will be done
at a total cost of $7.5M.
Deputy Mayor Williams
also reassured residents that the
council has already drafted a
plan for several projects to be
done in south Georgetown and
informed them that the munici-
pality will be holding a meeting
Saturday at 15:00 h in the com-
pound of the Shopping Plaza
on Aubrey Barker Road.
He said the first phase of
the plan will look at drainage
works in the community that
will include installing seven cul-
verts in South Ruimveldt Gar-
- dens.
The residents also com-
plained about a bridge recently
built in Cane View Avenue
which has cracked in certain
sections and appears to be sink-
The President went to
check on the bridge and told the
City Council members that
something should be done about
the structure as well.
The entourage then toured
El Dorado Street, also in South
Ruimveldt Gardens, where it
was observed that on the north-
ern half of the road, huge trees
.and thick bushes have taken
over what used to another
playfield in the area.

Mayor discussed what would

6- -SUNDAY CHRONICLE Octobe" 16, 2005




C LEAREST indication of the Guyana
Government's commitment to push ahead with
the creation of the Caribbean Single Market
and Economy (CSME) even in the face of trading
problems encountered with some CARICOM states -
came last week from the :Programme Manager of the
CSME Unit, Ivor Carryl.
Faced with recurring failures by some member
states of the Community to have mechanisms and
procedures in place for CSME-readiness,'CARICOM
leaders had accepted a suggestion by Prime Minister
Kenny Anthony for an audit on compliance by member
Amid reports that Barbados, Jamaica and
Trinidad and Tobago, would be CSME compliant by the
first quarter of this year, came indications that a
number of other CARICOM states would not be on



THERE'S a.lot of shouting
for joy as well as sharp
criticisms over the proposed
US$28 million '20/20 cricket
tournament' in 2006
announced at a lavish media
launch on October 3 by
Texan billionaire Allen
Stanford at his Pavilion
Restaurant in Antigua.
If celebrated
West Indies cricket legends
earmarked to share in the
Stanford cricket payout are
exuberant, that is
understandable. To rationalise,
as Clive Lloyd, one of the -
legends-behind- the--'20/
20 initiative', noted at the .'
launching ceremony, our
cricketers have too long been
"grossly underpaid".
But is this American
tycoon, whose dominant
investments and influence in
Antigua remain a source of
controversy in that
CARICOM state, really out to
"revolutionise" West Indies
cricket, or is he on a new
market blitz, on behalf of the
"Stanford empire", reputedly
worth some US$21 billion with
multiple business interests in
approximately 79 countries?
In contrast to the
exuberance of icons like Garfield
Sobers, Wes Hall and Clive
Lloyd for the Stanford-
sponsored tournament,
there are questions, from
various quarters, pertaining to
the rationale, organisation and
management at this time of the
2006 tournament with the West
Indies Cricket Board (WICB)
still seemingly left in the dark.
Granted that the Board
lacks the confidence it needs
from players and public, it still
stands as the
principal mechanism for
organising cricket tournaments
with its territorial affiliates. Yet,
according to, for example, Ellis
Lewis, President of the
Trinidad and Tobago Cricket
Board, also a WICB director, he
knows of NO consultation for

board by year end, as originally expected.
Some CARICOM states within the sub-
region of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States
(OECS), felt obliged to link access to the single market
component of the CSME dependent on progress for
'creation of a long promised Regional Development
Fund (RDF) to help disadvantaged economies.
President Bharrat Jagdeo, who has
always made known Guyana's anxiety to have the RDF
in place, nevertheless chose to encourage
preparedness for the country's access, before year
end, to the Caribbean single market.
Last week, Minister of Foreign Trade and
International Cooperation, Clement Rohee, was
optimistically pointing to Guyana's compliance
readiness for the single market by December the
latest, if not in November as likely.
It is particularly encouraging that both the Guyana
Government and the private sector remain strongly
committed to help make the CSME a reality, despite
the continuing difficulties this country experiences in
competitive intra-regional trade.
As, for instance, in the marketing of its rice
to some CARICOM states that give preference to
subsidized rice imports from extra-regional sources.
There is also the recurring problem of
discrimination and even hostility that Guyanese
continue to experience at a few CARICOM airports on
arrival, best known being Barbados and Trinidad and
As President Jagdeo recently observed,
following his official tour last month of the new
CARICOM Headquarters at Liliendaal, this country's gift
to the Community with the help of Japan:

Others in governments,
including Antigua, Stanford's
primary operational base in this
region, are also rhetorically
asking what has become of the
Texan entrepreneur's much
publicised originally
proposed "Stanford Caribbean
Investment Fund"?
That Investment Fund
Announced with much
media fanfare over two years
ago, Stanford had pledged to
pump some US$2 billion in
economic development projects
through that Fund.
An estimated US$900
million had been identified to
come from foreign investors;
another US$700 million
borrowed on the basis of
conventional financing and
approximately US$300 million
to be raised through non-
cash concessions from
Caribbean governments.
Immensely successful
an entrepreneur Stanford
certainly is. But the 55-year-old
American entrepreneur and
bossman of the Stanford Group
of Companies, known to
have had his share of clashes
with governments, including
some within CARICOM, is

certainly no philanthropist.
He makes no secret that
he is in business to make money,
and is on record as boasting of
being in the habit of getting what
he wants.
Well, his range of
investments and level of influence
'in Antigua over a relatively short
period check his investments -
profile spread across sixty acres
at VC Bird International Airport"
-point to his success in achieving
what he wanted to have located
in that CARICOM state, once
jeeringly deemed "the Birds
Those jeers, in reference
to the political grip and
enormous influence of the family
of the late VC Bird, including
sons Vere Jnr and Lester, were to
give way to current jokes about
"Stanfordville" as a new name for
Stanford had no real
problems in quickly securing the
support he needed from Prime
Minister Baldwin Spencer's
United Progressive Party
administration, following the
defeat, finally, of the Birds'
Antigua Labour Party at the
March 2004 general election, after
a long spell in government.
The UPP was
vehemently opposed to the
investment tentacles of the
Stanford Group reaching into an
off-shore Guiana islands project
for an estimated US$1 billion
luxury tourism resort.
Prime Minister Spencer,
who had recruited as his
experienced and well-paid
public relations handler the
Trinidadian national, Roy Boyke,
and now has him attending
cabinet meetings to the
discomfort of some of his

political colleagues, was to
make a rapid transformation.

Stanford originally
became involved in financial
investment in Antigua through
acquisition of a then financially
threatened Bank of Antigua.
Following a fierce
exchange with the government
of the British dependent
territory of Montserrat in the
1990s, resulting from a
decision to revoke licences
granted him for what was
then his 'Guardian
International Bank' (GIB) in
Plymouth, Stanford was to

"It is not an easy task to sell CARICOM to
Guyanese as an integrated community with many
benefits to be derived, when they are treated better
outside CARICOM than at regional airports of entry".
The President had made clear that
Guyanese immigration officials would not be allowed
to discriminate or extend unfair treatment to any
national of CARICOM on arrival in Guyana and he
expected this to be the norm across the Community.
The Prime Minister of Barbados, Owen
Arthur, is continuing to pursue his mandate to' have
dialogue with a number of identified CARICOM states
on challenges they face on CSME compliance as well
as efforts to establish the Regional Development Fund.
In the circumstances, it is to be hoped'that
the OSME Unit would soon be in a position to say of
other, CARICOM countries that, like Guyana, they are
"in pretty good shape" on single market treaty

LISTEN up, people! I and I
not feeling so righteous and
I want to chant my feelings
with you today.
I man feeling a bit down
and when I man feeling down
my vibrations affect other
people, including those close to
me and I don't like those kinds
of feelings.
I don't like affecting people
man, not me. I man on the
straight and narrow and I don't
like being on any stupidness.
That not for this dread.
So I chanting with you and
looking to the Most High to lead
us out of this latest patch of

Brother Bob Marky acislig
some mighty chants down in a
government yard in Trench
Town, Jamaica, and pouring
forth with that sweet, mighty
and moving voice of his.
That brother had some real
powerful messages and he
helped raise the consciousness
of brethren and sistren spread
all over the world so that today

I and I and you -.jVJi
are able to see
things in the proper "'
Praise Jah, the Most
I can't raise as mighty, nor
even a sweet a chant as Brother
Bob, but I want to chant down
some things that not making me
so irie today.
I remember Brother Bob
and Georgie making the fire light
in that government yard in
Trench Town as if it was love
burning through the night; and
then they would cook some
meal porridge of which they
would share with others.
And I man see some people
in this country moving along on
some pretty strange stupidity
and I man want to chant them
down. I want to raise some fires
on them and ask them to stop
the foolishness.
Remember how Brother
Bob appealed to us to emanci-
pate ourselves from mental sla-

a lot of us still tie up tight, tight,

tight with some mental slavery

As you know, I man am a
scribe I write for a living.
My job is journalism and
the greater part of it is for
righteousness for all and to
help lead us all into the
Promised Land where we can
find a better life. That's put-
ting it in a coconut shell and
I spend a lot of time chewing
.on stuff like what being a
scribe means when I sit down
with my calabash of ital from
time to time.
Ital is good meditation food



By Gwynne Dyer

IT WOULD be funny if it
were not so serious.
As migratory birds carry the
avian influenza virus west
across Europe, Britain is fol-
lowing in the footsteps of
Russia, Ukraine, Romania
and Turkey and asking hunt-
ers to shoot down as many in-
coming ducks and geese as
possible. They have been is-
sued with bird-flu testing kits
to see if their victims are car-
rying the dreaded virus, but
they really have little to
worry about: all the cases of
direct bird-to-human infec-
tion, now over a hundred in
total, have occurred on fam-
ily farms in South-East Asia.
The panic over bird flu is
not wholly misplaced. If the
H5N1 strain that is currently
ravaging wild bird flocks learns
to pass between human beings
easily while retaining even a
tenth of its current lethality -
the death-rate among people
who catch it directly from birds
has been as high as 50 percent
- the world would face an in-
fluenza pandemic as grave as
the one in 1918-19. That one,
known as the "Spanish influ-
enza", killed between fifty and
a hundred million people at a
time when the world's popula-
tion was only a third of what it
is now.
Recent research has shown
that the 1918 virus was also a
purely avian strain that jumped

to human beings, but then
changed enough to become
highly infectious between
people. Its peculiar pattern of
mortality, with a much higher
death rate than usual among
healthy young adults (half the
victims of the Spanish flu pan-
demic were between 18 and 40
years old), is reappearing in the
cases of direct bird-to-human
transmission of the past two
years. If the current avian virus
also develops the ability to
move easily between people, the
world is in trouble.

Only in the past couple of
decades has it been widely un-
derstood that almost all the
quick-killer infectious diseases
that have emerged to ravage hu-
man populations since the rise
of civilisation come from our
own domestic animals.
Human beings in 'the
wild, like other predators that
live in small, isolated groups
of a few dozen individuals or
less, would rarely have fallen
victim to the quick-killer vi-
ruses and bacteria whose
natural habitat is animals
that live in large herds.
Even if such a disease did
jump from some prey animal to
the hunters who killed it, and
even if it then adapted enough
to infect the other members of
the hunter-gatherer band, the
new, human-infectious form
would usually die out when it
had run through those few

dozen people.
Only when civilisation
brought people together in large
groups, and those people began
living in constant close contact
with domesticated versions of
herd-dwelling animals, did the
quick-killer diseases that often
devastate those species begin to
adapt permanently to the human
Over the past three or four
thousand years this process has
given us a whole range of highly
infectious new human diseases,
including quite lethal ones like
smallpox, cholera, typhoid, and
the Black Plague.
Influenza, which colonised
civilised human beings via their
flocks of domesticated birds, is
usually a relatively mild mem-
ber of this family of diseases,
but the flu virus mutates with
great ease, and occasionally it
assumes a highly lethal form.
As our population has
grown into the billions and
the volume and speed of
travel have soared, we have
become more vulnerable to
these "emergent" diseases,
but they are unlikely to
emerge on a British or even
a Russian farm. Eighty years
ago the "Spanish influenza"
virus probably made its way
from wild ducks into chick-
ens and thence into human
beings on a Kansas farm, but
modern commercial farming
does not involve people and

but the other night I saw a
dread looking longingly at
two sweet-looking women
and I reminded him that meat
A is forbidden to Rastas.
He looked at me, then
' even more longingly at the
two good-looking women,
miled, winked and said,
"That's good halaal meat and
that's not forbidden to Rasta!"
Right on, Rasta! Praise to
the Most High who works His
wonders in so many wonderful
ways for us to behold.
But back to where I was
chewing on my ital and meditat-
I remember when I was at
the Stabroek News (the other
newspaper I helped to bring to
birth and watch grow into a
sturdy tree), the late President
Desmond Hoyte didn't really
like us talking to his key gov-
ernment officials.
He probably was afraid of
information leaking out to nosy
brethren like me who would not
waste time spreading the news
and so he put a clamp on them.
As I recall it, some kind
of law or edict was passed
banning government officials
from giving out information
without the express permis-
sion of the top guys. In other
words, it was now up to those
who felt they were the 'Most
High' to decide what the rest
of us should or should not
So, in a flash, those who
were affected were told in no
uncertain terms that if they
spoke to others about matters
they were not supposed to talk
about without permission from
the 'Most High', they faced a
fine of $10,000 and a jail term.
Needless to say that put
the fear of death in a lot of

people who no longer felt .ate
talking to reporters from the
Stabroek News. Many were
scared but a few held their
ground, including Dr. Barton
Scotland, Mr. Winston King.
Dr. Cecil Rajana and the late Dr
Cedric Grant, who never failed
to see or speak to me in the
course of my job. This Rasta
says 'Hail up, brothers! Glory
to the true Most High!'
Those brothers have moved
on and so have I and I had
thought that with the dawn of
a new day, that that kind of fear
wrought by the stupidity of a
time bygone had drifted into the
dank comers where evil dwells.
But I have found that the
fear is alive and well and this
Rasta wants to break those
chains, man.
Listen to this reasoning and
tell me what you think. One of
our reporters last week was do-
ing a story on how good the
new-look Cheddi Jagan Interna-
tional Airport looking. Nothing
controversial nice, simple
story; but when she checked
* with a senior man at the airport,
the reporter was told that he
could not speak to her without
permission from his Permanent
We dug further and it be-
came apparent to us that a lot
of officials around the place
are under the distinct im-
pression that they can give
out information only through
a certain government agency,
which shall not be named for
the time being.
I couldn't believe the stu-
pidity we were picking up and
it seemed like even more fool-
ishness when another reporter
approached a Government Min-
ister on a story and she sug-
gested to him that she would

P S -B

talk to someone at the unnamed
government agency who would
eventually put out the informa-
tion. Thankfully, that minister
pulled back from going that
route and gave our reporter her
telephone number to pursue the
matter with her.
See the dothishness,
people? We are not after the
crown jewels here -just simple
information so that we can keep
the public better informed and
on the straight and righteous.
But some people seem to want
to keep us in the land of dark-
ness until they decide how much
light we can see.
Now, I man am not on that
kind of foolishness and I chant-
ing it down. I don't yet know
how far the rot has spread but
this Rasta fighting it down.
This Rasta raising a chant
against this backwardness and I
hope all the righteous brethren
and sistren join me to bring fires
on those who want to keep us
in mental bondage.
Hear me the days for that
done and fires pon anyone who
want to take us there!
Free the Rasta! Hail up,
people. Praises to the Most
I and I gone to find a good
calabash bowl of ital to meditate
on the two good-looking sistren
that other halaal meat-loving
Rasta was feasting his eyes on
the other night.
In the more time, people.

limit the ability of the population
to fully tap all the gains of

terrorise are hitting directly at the
backbone of democracy.
The second threat is
poverty. This has been cut in half
since the return of democracy.
But the presence of poverty
means the presence of a
dangerous threat. People
instinctively give bread and butter
issues priority. Democracy for
them is meaningless if it cannot
answer their daily needs and fulfil
their dreams. Poverty serves to
inhibit people's faith and belief in
democracy. A view strongly held

This is like a cancer that can
eat away at the fabric of any
democracy. The on-going battle
by the government to confront
corruption can be seen as an
effort to forestall this
dangerous threat to our
democracy. The tentacles of
corruption can undermine our
democracy and even have a
demoralising effect on our
citizenry to build their country
and earn an honest living.
There are instances where
democratic governments have
fallen under the millstone of
rampant corruption, a fact of
which the PPP/C is fully
aware. In Guyana, people had
to engage in corrupt activities
just to get food. The culture of

smuggling flour, potatoes, spilt
peas, cooking oil and sardines,
which were once banned, added
to rigged elections led to the
genesis of monstrous corruption
in our society. This monster
must be eliminated to preserve
our democracy.
Sadly, in this day and
age, there are those who still do
not believe in the power of our
people to choose their leaders.
We see the fourth threat -
political instability and
violence manifested in after

elections results, and even in
court rulings. Those who
promote political instability
now have the audacity to seek
foreign support for a non-
elected government instead of a
government that is freely and

their animals sharing the same
living spaces. Moreover, if
some disease does cross the
species barrier anyway, its
human victims are far more
likely to get early treatment
(and, if necessary, quarantine).
The places where the
style of farming and the
density of human and..animal
populations still favour the
easy movement of diseases
from animals into people are
mostly in Asia, particularly in
South-East Asia. That is
where all the new flu-viruses
have emerged in the past halt'
century, wheie the SARS-irus'
came from tmo years ago, and
wi here other emergent diseases

are most likely to appear. As a
first step, it would make sense
to create a network of trained
observers who would report on
any unusual disease patterns
among the local farm families or
their animals.
This is being done in
Thailand, and much poorer
Vietnam is making a start, but
Indonesia has done little, the
Chinese refuse to say what they
are doing, and 'some of the
smaller countries have done
nothing. The developed
countries would be wise to

In' the longer run,
.farmers throughout the region

must be encouraged to change
their long-established ways of
raising poultry, pigs and other
animals. That is a tall order, but
similar shifts in farming practice
have already happened
elsewhere, and at least the
region's economy is developing
fast enough that it can provide
markets for a more commercial
style of farming and non-farm
jobs for those no longer needed
on the land.
The countryside
wouldn't be nearly so
picturesque at the end of the
process. but the world
wouldn't be facing so inany
new diseases, either.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 16, 2005




Jasmin Garraway
THE development of
standards and indicators as a
means of measuring tourism
sustainability is one of the
primary recommendations of
Agenda 21.
Standards and indicators
are a process, which is based on
the premise that by following a
certain set of procedures and
principles, acceptable outcomes
will result.
Tourism practitioners
agree that indicators are a
practical instrument that
measures progress of sustainable
tourism development. They act
somewhat as a compass to
present a picture of the direction
in which a destination is
travelling as it journeys on the
path to sustainable tourism.
They also convey
information about the progress
that a destination is making in
achieving targets that are desired
or that have been set. On the
other hand, indicators give
warning signals about a situation
that is emerging, or an area of
concern in a destination. In this
way, preventative or corrective
action can be taken, before the
situation deteriorates to a level
where it cannot be easily
These tools are used
not only to conceive
developments, but are also a
practical way to actually achieve
improvements in the tourism
Agenda 21 identified 12
priority. areas in which
sustainability can be measured
for the tourism industry. These
include design for sustainability,
partnerships for sustainable
tourism, waste minimisation,
reuse and recycle, management
of fresh water resources, as well
as staff, customers and
community involvement in
environmental issues.
The Association of
Caribbean States' Convention
establishing the Sustainable
Tourism Zone of the Greater
Caribbean and its protocol also
outlines areas for measuring
sustainability in tourism.
These include security,
as measured by the number of
crimes committed against
tourists in a destination per year,
child prostitution as measured by
the number of cases detected
involving tourists, and
employment which can be
measured by the number of
persons employed in the
tourism industry.
Other priority areas for
measurement are quality of
water, energy and water

consumption, tourist
satisfaction, and environmental
management. In fulfilling its
mandate to establish the zone, the
ACS embarked on the process of
developing indicators of tourism
sustainability. The process
started with the pilot study of a
tourist destination in
Guadeloupe, followed by the
development of a manual for
trainers on sustainable indicators
The ACS' theoretical
approach to indicator
development was coupled with
the practical methodology
designed by the World Tourism
A field test of the



on the units of measurements,
or the actual benchmarks for each
of the priority areas identified.
Another constraint is
that existing tools are often
inadequate in light of the diverse
nature of the tourism product,
and the broad range of issues and
activities, which the industry
embraces. It is often easier to
find tools for measuring physical
and environmental impacts
rather than those for measuring
social and cultural impacts, as
these are more challenging.
In beginning the
process, the tourism sector can
seek guidance by examining
standards both voluntary and
mandatory, which have been set.

The Greater

Caribbean This Week

combined methodologies resulted
in several lessons learnt, including
the importance of information
gathering as the basis for
indicators use, and the need for
cooperation amongst all
stakeholders in the process.
The latter is particularly
important in multi-use
destinations where the resources
are used by several users and
stakeholders. The development
and use of indicators require a
high level of commitment by the
This can present a major
challenge especially as it relates
to getting consensus or agreement

Mandatory standards
encompass physical and
national policies, development
plans and tourism master plans
amongst others while voluntary
standards include codes of
ethics, industry guidelines for
compliance, and best practices
that have been identified.

gas leak

THE Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) has assured that the
chlorine gas leak which occurred last Tuesday at its
Fellowship Water Treatment Plant on the West Coast of
Demerara has been rectified and poses no further health
threat to anyone.
CWI' Health and Safety Officer. Christopher Cathro
told the Chronicle a cylinder that was in storage sprung a leak
and affected two persons who are living nearby. They suffered
from mild throat irritation and coughing as a result of inhaling
the escaped gas.
However. Cathro said a check with them has revealed
that they are back to normal health.
However. the kitchen garden of the two persons suffered
damages, Cathro said, adding that GWI is prepared to offer
compensation for the losses incurred. but only when an ongoing
investigation into the incident is completed.
Cathro noted that there have been similar incidents in
the patq at different locations caused by varying circumstances.
Chlorine is used in the purification of water at
Water Treatment Plants.

example, that the tertiary

Indeed, Trinidad and Tobago

This is a truly troubling
situation for the Caribbean. For
not only does it mean that the
region is losing a very large
number of its most educated
people, it also shows that the
richest nations are the
beneficiaries of the scarce
financial resources that

education of their brightest

Two of the three major

immigrant-receiving countries are
Australia, Canada and the United

people emigrate to Canada and

In mid-October, the
Canadian Foreign Affairs
Minister, Pierre Pettigrew,
declared that Canada's
population of 32 million must
reach 40 million within "the next
few years" if Canada is "to
maintain its quality of life".
-I Mr Pettigrew was reflecting
the concern that Canada's
population is ageing with more

demands on the social welfare
system. There is, therefore, an
urgent need for a younger and
bigger work force to contribute
financially to the system.,
But, since the Canadian
population grew by only 1

To add to the problem,
over the last few years, the

already lost a large number of
nurses and teachers to the US

While, ;now and in the
future the largest number of
such skills will come from Asian
countries, the largest number as

will continue to be the region

of its qualified people.
There should be no doubt
about it: it is not the poor, the
wretched andithe unskilled that
will be accepted as migrants into
the OECD countries. The drive
is for qualified and skilled
people who can fill a void in the
work force, contribute to the
creation of new jobs and new
businesses, buy property,

Key support for Guyana sugar battle

By Renu Raghubir and
Chamanlall Naipaul

GUYANA yesterday clinched
vital support in its battle to
stave off the crippling impact
of proposed European price
cuts on its lynchpin sugar in-
dustry on which thousands of
families depend.
The firm backing for this
country's cause came from a
team from the African, Carib-
bean and Pacific/European
Union (ACP/EU) Joint Parlia-
mentary Assembly which flew
here Friday for a firsthand look
at the sugar industry and for
talks with government and other
Co-President of the assem-
bly, Ms. Glenys Kinnock, told
reporters in Georgetown that
the team has a broader under-
standing of what sugar means to
Guyana and why such a sub-
stantial proportion of the agri-
cultural Gross Domestic Prod-
uct (GDP) (57 per cent) de-
pends on the industry.
The delegation yesterday
visited Albion sugar estate in
Berbice where a $164M mod-
ernization project is under way
to diversify the industry and
came, away with a holistic pic-
ture. of the situation.
"We have had a first hand
look at the impact the proposed
reform will have on people's
livelihood and the communities,
and I believe that they are feel-
ing a sense of betrayal and
would like more reassurance that
there is indeed, a real under-
standing of what sugar means to

thousands of livelihoods", Ms.
Kinnock said.
In Georgetown yesterday
afternoon,-she told International
Trade and Cooperation Minis-
ter Clement Rohee, "We want
to support your efforts in this
country in doing whatever you
can to withstand the pressure
that you're under and I have ev-
ery faith in you doing that".
Kinnock commended
Guyana for doing "very well" in
diversifying and modernizing
the industry, pointing to the
state-of-the-art factory to be
built at Skeldon, Berbice, which
she said will be a leading ex-
ample of a developing country's
work in the sugar sector.
According to her,, the best
ladder out of poverty is trade
and if that ladder is kicked from
under Guyana, the country will
become poorer.
Additionally, she stressed,
sugar paves the way for
sustainability that does not
come from other products such
as pineapples and avocadoes.
Kinnock, a British Labour
Party Member of Parliament
who also sits in the European
Union Parliament, said it is ex-
cellent that Guyana fully under-
stands that it must diversify
outside the sugar industry.
She said the team also has a
clear picture of how, much is be-
ing invested in the industry and
promised that she and Mr.
Michael Gahler, another mem-
ber of the delegation who is
from the European Parliament,
will meet European Commis-
sioner, Mr. Peter Mandelson

next week to discuss their visit
here and to brief him on how
people here feel.
Mandelson flew here earlier
this year to meet government
and industry officials on the
proposed reform of the EU
sugar regime and promised sup-
port to cushion the impact of
the change on Guyana and other
ACP countries.
Industry officials say the
proposed 39% cut in the price
the EU pays for sugar from
Guyana and other ACP produc-
ers would have a devastating
impact on the economy of those

Sugar accounts for the live-
lihood of some 125,000 in
Guyana and President Bharrat.
Jagdeo last week said the pro-
posed sugar price cuts an-
nounced by the European Com-
mission (EC), if implemented,
will not only deal a severe blow
to the economies of ACP sugar
producers, but will also raise the
important question of whether
Europe can be trusted.
Kinnock yesterday told
Rohee, who is also the Carib-
bean Community (CARICOM)
ministerial spokesperson on
sugar, "I share your worry that
there isn't sufficient understand-
ing and sensitivity of this de-
pendency on sugar. And not just
that but also your willingness to
fight for what is yours and what
you do well."
"And I think what people
in Guyana understand is that
sugar is about generating the

Kinnock said there is not
enough sensitivity to the needs
of countries like Guyana and the
EU has a duty not to walk away
from the social and economic
difficulties which they would
face if the proposed reforms are
Acknowledging that a 39
per cent cut in the EU sugar
price is enormous and the imple-
mentation time is short, she
noted that it is necessary to en-
sure that "things are not done
which will destabilise develop-
ing economies."

The team includes ACP
Secretariat Representative,
Guyanese Mr. Neville
Bissember; members of the as-
sembly, Mrs. Sharon Hay

Gahler, Mr. Youssouh Moussa
Dawelh and Mr. Joeli Nabyku.
They are here on a sugar fact-
finding mission to assess the
impact the EU proposed reform
of the longstanding sugar regime
would have on the economy.
Rohee called Kinnock a
"principal ally" and said the
presence of the team in Guyana
was very timely.
He said Guyana made a
wise decisiqn:'to 'set up a sub-
committee 'of the Cabinet to.
closely monitor the issue.
Members of the Task Force
set up by Cabinet to finalise

Guyana's preparation for an ac-
tion plan were also at the meet-

At Albion, Kinnock told the
Chronicle that she has a better
grasp of the crucial importance
of the sugar industry to the
socio-economic fabric of the
Guyanese society and this will
make her a stronger advocate
against the proposed sugar cuts.
"I am totally supportive of
the ACP's position on.the issue
and I don't mind being referred
to as being a friend of the Car-
ibbean," she said.
She noted too that the
proposed price cuts would

would obviously affect the de-

She praised Guyana for the
steps it has taken to meet the
challenges of trade liberalisation
which would see the erosion of
preferential commodity prices.

the livelihoods of hundreds of
thousands in the ACP coun-
tries, as well as the social dislo-
cations it would create, will help
influence a change which would
see less drastic price cuts and a
longer period of implementation
to give the affected countries a
chance to adjust.
She felt that visits such as
this by her delegation would
help build the greater under-
standing and awareness that is
She added that the ACP
group is a powerful voice in the
struggle against the proposed
sugar regime.
Referring to her discourses
with sugar workers at Albion/
Port Mourant Estate, Kinnock
assured them that their "words
will be used as ammunition" in
the battle against the proposed
cuts on her return to Europe
Webster, from Jamaica, told
the Chronicle that the visit here
has helped to widen the per-
spective in which the struggle
against the proposed price cuts
is being waged because even
though the methods of harvest-
ing and production are different
in Guyana, the issues are the
same as those of other ACP
sugar producers.
She also assured sugar
workers that on return to Eu-
rope the battle against the "dra-

conian" price cuts will be inten-
sified on all fronts.
Acting Chief Executive Of-
ficer and Financial Director of
the Guyana Sugar Corporation
(GUYSUCO), Paul Bhim told
the Chronicle that visits such as
the one yesterday help to ex-
pose the realities of what the
price cuts would result in if
these are implemented in their
present form.
"The more they come, the
better," he opined, adding that
he is impressed with Kinnock's
stance on the issue and is opti-
mistic that she would use her
influential position to advance
Guyana's and the ACP's case
which is important in the
struggle against the proposed
reformed sugar regime.
Chairman of the
GUYSUCO Board of Directors,
Ronald Ali said the visit was
"meaningful" and a learning ex-
perience with respect to histori-
cal facts as Guyana's associa-
tion with sugar began more than
300 years ago.
He also reiterated the ACP's
position on the price cuts point-
ing out that if implemented
these will be an obstacle in

greater modernisation and move-
ment into value-added produc-
tion which needs large scale in-

the Caribbean.-
When this loss of talent is
combined with the erosion of
preferential markets for the
area's traditional exports, the
decline in official development
assistance, and the slow down
in the growth rates of national
economies, it is very likely that
both poverty and
unemployment will increase.
There are, of course, two
factors contributing to the
migration of skills from the
First is the "pull' factor,
among them better salaries and
wider opportunities to work in
a chosen field.
Second is the "push" factor
which includes political
discrimination and
victimization, lower salaries, and
limited opportunities for
personal growth.
There is nothing that the
Caribbean can do to compel its
skilled and qualified people to
remain at home. They can only
be encouraged to do so.
Such encouragement would
require a more inclusive system
which does not shut out
persons from opportunities and
from contributing on party
political grounds; which actively
promotes their retention by job
conditions that compensate
them for lower salaries; and
which allows adequate space for
their creative abilities.
Additionally, the creation of
the Caribbean Single Market
and Economy with free
movement of labour would
expand the area of opportunity
for skilled nationals within the
But even such conditions
would not end skilled migration
to OECD countries.
The Caribbean should
therefore try to turn this
significant migration to
In financial terms, there are
already considerable benefits
from Caribbean migration as
immigrants send remittances to
their home countries to relatives
and friends.
According to the IMF, the
Caribbean is the largest

recipient of worker remittances
in proportion to its GDP. The
report says that, in 2002, total
remittances "constituted about 13
percent of the region's GDP". In
comparison, foreign direct
investment (FDI) was 6 per cent
and official development
assistance (ODA) was only 1 per
cent of GDP.
What is more, remittances
rose between 1990 and 2002
while FDI and ODA declined.
Remittances are, therefore,
significant. The money that is
sent home alleviates poverty and
supports the unemployed; it is
spent in the economy helping to
sustain businesses and to
maintain the jobs of people
employed in them.
Caribbean governments and
the private sector, particularly
the financial services industry,
should try to increase the
benefits of remittances sent from
nationals abroad.
They could, for instance,
allow nationals abroad to save in
domestic financial institutions at
home at higher rates of interest
and with convertibility to the
currencies in which they earn.
This would increase the capital
available in the domestic market
to lend for productive purposes.
A serious effort should also
be made to encourage nationals
abroad to invest not only in their
native countries, but in other
parts of the Caribbean.
Proposals should be drawn-
up for investment in government
bonds and private sector projects
at a preferred rate of interest.
This would call for governments
and private sector organizations
to devise jointly a portfolio of
projects structured by
investment bankers, and
endorsed by Central Banks to
provide a satisfactory level of
It is obvious that there is
considerable experience and
knowledge in a wide range of
areas among Caribbean nationals
abroad. Governments, along
with the private sector, should
implement a public diplomacy
strategy in the main areas of the
world in which nationals are
located with the twin objectives
of benefiting from their ideas,
network of contacts, and know-
how in their fields of

competence, and of arming
them with the information
they need to advance the
Caribbean's interest visibly in
the overseas communities in
which they live, work and,
very importantly, vote.
Governments and the
private sector in the region
should turn Caribbean
migration to advantage by
creating conditions in which
nationals abroad find. it
beneficial to invest in their
one Caribbean homeland,
and by structuring
machinery to pick their
brains; brains that were
born and nurtured in the

presentation to West Berbicians
of 65 beds and 15 mattresses,
sports gear and stationery for
schools and food items for soup
kitchens in at least six schools.
The venue was the.
complex of the Josliet
Missionary Outreach Health
Project (JMOHP) at Golden
Fleece West Berbice and the
distribution was done by the
Number Two Committee of the
FFP in Region Five, one of three
Committees recently established,
with responsibility for work in
villages between Profitt and Mon
The occasion was the
weekly distribution at the
JMOHP Complex which had
commenced from July 19 last.
Head of JMOHP and
Chairman of the Number Two
Committee, Dr. Rhonda Archer
disclosed that the flow of items
from FFP had increased in recent
weeks, but the distribution to the
poor and needy on Friday had
been unprecedented in terms of
the value of the items.
She expressed
satisfaction with the growing
number of eligible persons
between Profitt and Mon Choisi
who were benefiting from the
FFP's charitable efforts since the
election on July 19 of the
Number Two Committee.
The Number Two
Committee comprises seven
members and each member had

been assigned geographic areas
for which they are expected to
spearhead relief efforts for the
poor and needy within them.
Dr. Archer identified
Committee members and their
areas of responsibility as
follows: Teacher Joy Gonsalves
(Profitt to Lichfield); Pastor
Pauline Wade (Number 37 village
to Onverwagt); Mr. Marion
Fraser (Onverwagt to Hopetown
with the exception of Bush Lot)
Secretary Rajendra Tribhawan
(Bush Lot); Teacher Constance
McAlmont (Fort Wellington to
Mon Choisi with the exception
of Bath Settlement) and Pastor
Garrett (Bath Settlement).
Dr. Archer urged social
organizations who help the
needy, as well as needy persons
who had not yet accessed help
available from the FFP to
approach the Number Two
Committee or individual
members and make their needs
known and receive help.
The JMOPH now
carries out distribution of FFP
inputs at the Complex at Golden
Fleece on a weekly basis.
Groups and
organizations which serve as
conduits to the needy are
merely required to make
monetary contributions to pay
for the transportation costs
incurred in the weekly
trucking of materials from
Georgetown to Berbice.

Red Cross calls for disaster

management, planning blueprint

By Renu Raghubir

THE disastrous January
floods along the Guyana
coastal belt threw up the need
for a disaster management
and planning programme and
more training for volunteers,
'the head of the local Red
Cross has said.
Secretary General of the
Guyana Red Cross Society
(GRCS), Ms. Dorothy Fraser, is
also calling for partnerships be-
tween Non governmental
organizations (NGOs) and the
private sector, support for the
Civil Defence Commission
(CDC) and linkages with other
countries to help Guyana better
cope with natural disasters.
Planning should be strength-
ened and awareness about disas-
ters should also be raised, she
said last week.
Fraser also made a special
appeal for more volunteers and
thanked the people and compa-
nies rallying to the organisation's
relief efforts after the floods ear-
lier this year.
Her calls came as Guyana
observed International Natural

Disaster Reduction Day on
Wednesday when the Red Cross
presented certificates of appre-
ciation to volunteers and donors
who helped during the floods
which triggered -the country's
worst natural disaster.
Flood waters from the record
January rains blanketed much of
Georgetown and several villages
on the East Coast and East Bank
Demerara, leaving families bat-
tling to hold back the rising wa-
ters from their bottom flats,
some stacking sandbags at doors.
Areas and streets in the capi-
tal city were under several inches
of water and municipal markets
were among business places
President Bharrat Jagdeo set
up a task force to determine the
cause of the flooding and it found
that it was because of a lack of
monitoring and maintaining of
the city's drainage system.
The administration
organised a joint government/pri-
vate sector emergency response
to the flooding, and the govern-
ment had to implement mechani-
cal cleaning of drains, under-
ground channels and outfalls and

Region Three (West Demerara/

(Demerara/Mahaica) and Region
Five (Mahaica/Berbice) were de-
clared disaster zones and the
government spearheaded a mas-
sive relief programme to distrib-
ute food and help victims find
The United Nations esti-
mated some 200,000 people
were affected by the floods and
several countries responded to
the government's appeals for
.help in the wake of the floods.
The GRCS met Thursday at
the Kenneth DeAbreu Audito-
rium in Kingston, Georgetown to
review the lessons from the
floods and to look at the World
Disasters Report 2005.
GRCS Board Member
Mrs. Debbie Ramsay recalled
_.that_ for_its flomdrelief-
programme, the organisation;
received assistance from the
donor community, Caribbean
Community (CARICOM)
countries, local businesses,
individuals and Red Cross so-
cieties throughout the world.
She explained that an in-!
depth assessment was carried
out to find the vulnerable;
people, adding that the
organisation subsequently con-
ducted a lesson learning exercise
and a satisfaction survey, which
revealed a high level of apprecia-
tion for the Red Cross assis-
However, Ramsay said, the
Red Cross experienced its own
share of problems during the re-
lief efforts and found that it
needs vehicles with megaphone
systems to advertise health talks
as well as vehicles for relief op-

It was also discovered that
the blankets distributed were too
heavy for the Guyana climate,
while the clean-up kits were dis-
tributed too late, she reported.
At the same forum, Dr. Pe-

ter DeGroot said a major prob-
lem during the floods was the
transmission of infectious dis-
eases from animals to humans,
including leptospirosis.
He said that in the event of
future flooding, one recommen-
dation would be for people to
avoid swimming and wading in
the water. But he noted that this
advice could be difficult to ad-
here to, since in many instances,
homes and shacks are under wa-
ter, as was the case in the Janu-
ary floods.
"There was nowhere to keep
the animals and the owners were
forced to release them on -the
road. That caused traffic
problems...Many animals
starved because there was no
food and all the pastures were
flooded out," he recounted.
"People were seen butchering
_animalson the roadsides-and then-
selling without refrigeration.
Thatrhas got to be addressed."
DeGroot further pointed out
that removal and burial of dead
animals was a major problem
that also has to be addressed.
In preparation for future
natural disasters, evacuation of
people has to be well-planned
and once that is done, plans
must be made to ensure that they
are fed properly and that all
sanitary facilities are provided,
he said.
He noted that people are al-
ways reluctant to leave their
homes and so security measures
must be in place for the evacu-
ated houses.
DeGroot stated that during
the flood period, farmers at
Mahaica lost millions of dollars
because water was released from
the Demerara Conservancy into
Mahaica. This could have been
avoided if the infrastructure was
properly maintained, he said.
Fraser said people need in-
formation as much as water,
food, medicine or shelter; and for
those who don't know, informa-
tion can save lives, livelihoods
and resources as well. It may be
the only form of disaster pre-
paredness that the most vulner-

able can afford, she said.
The right kind of informa-
tion leads to a deeper understand-
ing of needs and ways to re-
spond, while the wrong informa-
tion can lead to inappropriate,
even dangerous, interventions.
she added.

Fraser stressed that informa-
tion bestows power and lack of
il can make people victimss of di-
saster, noting that the, latest
World Disasters Report calls on
agencies to focus less on gather-
ing information for their own
needs and more on exchanging
information. with the people
they seek to support.
The report features the role
of information in disasters; hur-
ricane early warning in the Car-
ibbean;J-ocusts -in-West-Africa--
early warning, late response; the:
information black hole in Aceh;

tarian media coverage in the digi-
tal age; radio in Afghanistan -
challenging perceptions, changing
behaviour; disaster data key
databases, trends and statistics.
The report, now in its 13th
publication, was released on Oc-
tober 5 by the International Fed-
eration of Red Cross (IFRC) and
Red Crescent Societies, and un-
derlines that the right kind of in-
formation leads to a much
deeper understanding of
people's needs and the best
ways to meet those needs.
Fraser quoted IFRC Presi-
dent Juan Manuel Sudrez del
Toro as saying, "Early warn-
ing is the most obvious way
that information can help save
lives. In the Caribbean, dur-
ing the 2004 hurricane sea-

thus saved. The key to this

Biotechnology &

Biosafety Column

Sponsored by the Guyana-
UNEP-GEF National Biosafety
Framework Project

LAST week, we started the
discussion on agricultural
biotechnology by providing
some basic background and
a few examples of the
products of this brand of
We identified agricultural
biotechnology, otherwise
referred to as 'green
biotechnology' in popular
science, as a brand of
biotechnology that entails the
application of scientific and
engineering principles to the
processing of agricultural
materials by biological agents
to provide goods and services
in the agri-sector. While we
may not wish to get into the
details of the methodology of
agricultural biotechnology at
this stage, it suffices at this
juncture to indicate a few of
the modern biotechnology
methodologies employed in
agricultural biotechnology.


Guyana started its share of
biotechnology through the
establishment of the Tissue
Culture laboratory at NARI,
Mon Repos, in 1989. Before
then, preliminary attempts at

tissue culture were successfully
made at the Institute of Applied
Science and Technology, a few
years earlier. However, the
tissue culture method is
biotechnology that allows for
selection of a crop or plant with
the desired physical,
nutritional, natural disease-
resistance qualities and literally

'cloning' or micro-production of
several plantlets not from seed
(seeds are technically embryos
derived from sexual reproductive -
pollination followed by
fertilisation), but from vegetative
parts of germinated seeds, seedlings
or mature plants.
The tissue samples to be
cultured are usually 'surgically'
isolated from the shoot tips or other
tissues. These small samples of
plant tissues are then treated with
very dilute concentrations of bleach
to remove any bacteria, fungi, or
other microorganisms that may
contaminate the culture under
hygienically sterile laboratory
conditions. The tissues so treated
are then provided with specific
plant growth hormones, nutrients
and vitamins which are known to
promote the division and growth
of cells. The foregoing represents a
very simplified description of the
process for our lay purposes.
Tissue culture and micro-
propagation the sub-culturing of
several pieces of the test-tube
cultured original piece of isolated
plant tissue has been practiced in

Guyana for nearly 17 years,
resulting in the release of disease-
free planting stock of bananas,
pineapple and sweet potato,
among a few others. Tissue
ctilture dates back,from 1921
when Molliard first cultured
fragments of plant embryos
('seed eyes'), and the subsequent
use of carrot tissue in the test-
tube generation of a mass of carrot
cells called callus by means of
lactic acid.
This ground-breaking feat
was pioneered by Blumenthal
and Meyer in 1924! It took
decades before all the relevant
plant hormones, mineral
nutrients and vitamins and their
specific proportions for
successful tissue culture were
figured out. For example, coconut
milk was used as an effective
source of a required plant
hormone for tissue culture in
1941, by the plant physiologist,
Professor van Overbeek. It took
several years for the actual
identity of the specific group of
plant hormone in coconut milk,
the cytokinins, to be discovered.

A commercially used cytokinin,
Kinetin, is also found in the
sperm of the herring fish!!!
Although tissue culture is
biotechnology, it does riot result
in genetic modification, and
therefore plants derived from
tissue culture of conventionally
bred plants are not GMO. It is
only when tissue or cell culture
has been used to complement
the production of a genetically
engineered plant from
genetically engineered cell or
protoplast dd we get a GMO.
Likewise, Guyana has been
,using 'artificial insemination' for
cattle production for a number
of years under the auspices of
the National Dairy
Development Programme. (Use
of technology for extraction of
sperm or semen from bulls/male
cow of desired trait and the non-
sexual/artificial introduction of
the collected sperm into the
vagina of a female cow of desired
trait to induce fertilisation). This

decisive action by the government
and all stakeholders, Opposition
political parties included, which
is consistent with the principles
of democracy to crush the various
threats to democracy.

Is democracy critical for our
prosperity and stability?

The survival of this nation
hinges on a lasting democratic
environment. We do not have
the luxury to experiment with
any non-democratic
arrangement to find out the
consequences. The experiences
of the 1964-1992 period tell

the sordid story of destruction,
deprivation and economic
spoliation resulting from the
absence of democracy.
This point was made by
President Bharrat Jagdeo in his last
Independence address to the
nation: "In many respects,
Guyana lost decades in terms of
development. October, 1992
marked another important
milestone in our country's history.
SWith the rebirth of democracy and
the return to office of a freely
elected government, a new phase
in our national journey began. As
in any journey with a destination
in mind, we must know where we
are heading if we are not to become
lost en route, or to become diverted

from our goals."
It would also be useful
for us to examine the
indicators of progress since
1992 which will answer the
question about the
essentiality of democracy for
our individual and collective
survival. These evidence of
progress are redounding to the
prosperity and stability of this
- While we reflect on
the struggles to win
democracy and celebrate the
gains, we must. not lose
perspective of its critical
importance locally and
internationally as an agent of
world peace. We must not take

our democracy for granted as the
enemies of freedom and democracy
are lurking outside our doors.
At times, commentators
observe that we are too liberal
with our democracy. But this is a
price we must pay. We must
prepare to fight to defend this
democracy as our ancestors and
freedom fighters did when they
stood for what was good for them
and the generations to come.
Also, let us count ourselves
fortunate as there are still many
millions struggling to attain a
basic democratic State.
And now I end on a
provocative note: any democracy
runs the risk of perishing by the
abuse of democracy.

Guyana and

Barbados ...
From back page
ment with Chronicle Sport, "Barbados have shown their abil-
ity over the years to perform. They have a very good bowling
attack and some experienced batsmen and also a very good
leader, one who is very knowledgeable of the game. It's going
to be a very competitive game as it has always been with the
two sides."
Considered by many pundits of the sport to be "the best of
the region's batting against their bowling counterparts", cricket-lov-
ers will flock the world famous Bourda to see the in-form Ramnaresh
Sarwan, a prime candidate for the tournament's MVP and most runs
awards, as well as his captain Shivnarine Chanderpaul and others
take on the Bajan pace attack of Corey Collymore, Fidel Edwards
and the exciting Tino Best, all of whom depart for Australia tomor-
The two sides have met in two previous finals with Guyana
triumphing and today the Bajans who are appearing in a record
14th final hope to change the usual result as they focus on
their batting, captain Courtney Browne told reporters yester-
"I think if we are going to beat Guyana, we will have to bat
well because I think we have the bowling attack that can limit them.
Whether we are setting a target, or chasing runs, we always seem
to fall down in our batting against Guyana, particularly against the
spin bowlers.
"Our batsmen, in the middle order especially, will need to keep
their heads, and keep rotating the strike. Hopefully, we can then
pick the scoring rate up at the end of the innings with wickets in
hand, so this is what we need to concentrate upon to beat Guyana."
the strategist Browne disclosed to the media.
Guyana's coach Smith in relating his tactic for success today
claimed "proper planning and execution is the key to beating Bar-
bados and we have put a lot of thought into our game plan".
Today's encounter which starts at 09:00 h. will be the fourth
championship appearance for the home team in the last five
years, winning in 2001 and 2003 and if the sequence is to be
sustained the massive home fans could be singing "Ain't no
stopping us now" as the curtain is drawn on the 2005 KFC
Cup sometime this afternoon.

Grant rebounds to

capture 45-&-0ver title
AFTER bowing out of the Men's Open Singles following a
controversial semi-final match, Rudy Grant rebounded to
capture the 45-&-Over title in the El Dorado/Carib tennis
tournament at the Le Meridien Pegasus, Friday night.
Grant snatched victory from Feroze'Khan 6-4, 6-3, with the
first set providing the thrill as Khan raced to a 2-0 lead but Grant
charged back and the set was deadlocked 3-3. Khan won only
one more game as Grant employed his spin serve to win the set.
The second set, however, was completed in 25 minutes as
Grant broke Khan from the outset and raced home for the title.
In the Men's 35-&-Over, Don Singh claimed a place in
the final, beating Lester Alvis without dropping a game in
straight sets 6-0, 6-0, with blistering serves. He was due to
meet Grant in the final yesterday.

FORMER national Under-19
off-spinner Ian Gonsalves
snapped up three quick wick-
ets to put Trevon Garraway's
XI in deep trouble at 121 for
six against Dinesh Joseph's
XI at the end of the second
day's play, yesterday, in the
senior Essequibo cricket trial
match, as they prepare for the
upcoming Pepsi four-day in-
ter-county competition at the
Hampton Court ground in
Gonsalves, who bowled with
some amount .of variety, picked
up three for 22 from his 19 overs,
and was well supported by leg-
spinner Ramesh Narine who
took two wickets for 33 runs.
After Joseph's XI resumed
on the second morning at 98 for
one, replying to Garraway XI's
151, they reached 248 all out off
93.5 overs, with national fast
bowler Reon Thomas hitting afn

attacking 52, which included four
fours and a solitary six. Skipper
Joseph who was not out on 43
did not add to his overnight score
while his partner Mahendra
Boodram only added four runs
to his overnight 20.
Bowling for Garraway's XI,
left-arm spinner Robert Moore
snarled three for 27 while
Norman Fredericks took three for
11 and Andrew Gonsalves two
for 68.
Garraway's XI in their
second innings are struggling
at 121 for the loss of seven
wickets, with the skipper
himself not out on 16, while
his overnight partner,
Everest's player Raakesh
Goberdhan, is on five.
Earlier, in Garraway's XI
innings, opening batsman
Ravi Beharry made a fluent
59 (5x4). (Ravendra

Goal Attack,


I DO not usually write to the
pressdbut but beg your indul-
gence to address the seeming
unwarranted and often lop-
sided maligning of our sports
administrators who work so
hard to ensure we can have
sporting opportunities in this
country, where we do not have
dedicated budgets from gov-
ernment and the private sec-
tor for the various sports dis-
Life has a way of throwing
us a curve ball ever so often.
Trouble is, people think they
can too. In other words some
people think that they are sole
arbiters and the ultimate givers
and takers of life. What does
this have to do with anything?
Anything at all? Particularly
football in Guyana?
Indeed as one 'writer' puts
it, it is time for change. I could
not agree more! But from what
to what? It is time for those
who purport to be the champi-
ons of truth, integrity, honesty
and all those right-sounding cre-
ators of platitudes, to begin
first with themselves. "Where
is the truth in me?" is a ques-
tion they should ask: particu-
larly when they aspire to be the
custodians. of some 'truth' to
the public whom they wish to
keep informed.
Good journalism is not sim-
ply the reporting of facts but
rather, the reporting of facts in
an accurate manner, It is the ex-

ploring of all sides of an issue
and above all ought not to be
clouded by idiosyncrasy and
hidden agendas of often twisted
minds that often time, nega-
tively impact the good sense and
reason of the general, informa-
tion-hungry public. To sacrifice
accuracy is to sell readers short.
The thing that makes me smile
is that many persons of the
'professional' pen often think of
their general readership as being
somewhat less than capable of
understanding the basics, that is,
they are thought to have very
sub-normal reasoning capabili-
ties. This offensive and totally
patronising behaviour should be
seen by these 'pen-men' (and
pen-women) lest I be deemed
sexist, at best as an insult to
their claim to professionalism.
Ah, yes! I did allude to a
nexus with football. A time for
change, parrots the headline!
(SC Oct. 9 2005). However it
remains quite unclear from what
to what. The columnist cites the
removal of some gentlemen else-
where in the world from re-
sponsibilities that had to do
with football. He fails however
to tell us, the readers, what spe-
cifically has transpired in these
locales since the departure of
those gentlemen. Incidentally,
one of the two gentlemen has
gone on to occupy a position
more highly visible and at a
much more authoritative level
of management of sport in his

country! In the other instance,
notably with reference to Ja-
maica, the official in question
also has gravitated to a higher
level of sports administration,
while the game in both countries
declined right after the 'change'.
Is this the change the writer is
seeking for Guyana's football?
The columnist, comfortably
astride a horse named Hauteur,
and in a reckless gallop, seeks
to keep highlighting the non-rec-
ognition of a gentleman's agree-
ment that the GFF did broker
with one of its partners as a de-
ception pulled by that
organisation on the general pub-
Had the proper homework
been done, he would have known
that the two organizations, had
been communicating at the high-
est levels and had had several
discussions about this issue. He
should know that in the context
of business locally as well as in
any other part of the world,
agreements whether gentlemanly
or otherwise are often the sub-
jects of breaches. In this par-
ticular instance, how was the
administrator of football to
know that its partner was hav-
ing an internal crisis that would
erupt at exactly the time that it
was seeking to conclude an ar-
rangement that would have re-
sulted in an inked document. He
should have asked himself and
others, whether the denial mode
adopted by officials of the com-

pany was as a result of the na-
ture of the internal problem
which had been exposed. Could
it have also been as a result of
these officials seeking to protect
themselves from and semblance
of culpability given the gravity
of the alleged improprieties in
their organisation?
The iTrrefutable fact that has
escaped the author of the article
in SC Oct. 9 is that the Tourna-
ment was not stopped and play-
ers who rigorously trained and
prepared themselves, not left
disappointed, and so football
has been the winner despite ad-
mininistrative snafus. Could that
not have been his focal point?
The writer also made the
choice of football personnel to
benefit from training an issue.
What is unfathomable is the lack
of focus when it comes to the
more noteworthy issue which is
that Guyana, of all the partici-
pating territories, wvas able to
field and present two candidates
for training at this forum, when
most of the others only had one
or no representative present!

Football in Guyana has im-
proved and is improving. Play-
ers as well as fans have been
longing for involvement in more
matches of an international na-
ture. Kudos to the GFF for af-
fording us the opportunity to
witness the trouncing of
Dominica, a sister Caribbean
team with a much higher rank-
ing in FIFA than Guyana, and
for a Georgetown Club team
beating the second best
Suriname Club team! The 'col-
umnist' is advised that yellow
is not a wholesome colour for
As a football aficionado, I
look forward to the coming
months when more sister Car-
ibbean and other International
teams will visit our shores.
We'll have a splendid opportu-
nity to play and witness play
that will no doubt demonstrate
that our Game the 'People's
Game' is rising faster than some
are attempting to sink it.


Sports Editor's Note: Private
investigations proved that
this supposed football aficio-
nado does not exist at the ad-
dress given underlining the
deception that the column
titled 'Time for a Change'
was highlighting and which
also called for a change in the
minds and attitudes of all
concerned with the sport of
football. It seems as though
this "Auntie Comelately
Wanabee' missed the mes-
sage of the article and is
caught up with her hidden
As it relates to accurate
facts you failed to address the
issue at hand with the coaching
course which highlighted again
the deception by the governing
body for football.
From all appearances you
are guilty by association of
the said deception that per-
vades the sport and certainly
is the change in attitude
and mind that the article was
calling for in the positive ad-
vancement of the sport.

Nine-man Pele end

unbeaten run of Beacon

I 9' m dr

By Allan La Rose
IN spite of being reduced to
nine players after half-hour's
play, former national club
champions Pele FC'ended
the unbeaten run of Beacon
FC while the Guyana De-
fence Force (GDF) and Cari
Air Western Tigers shared
two points apiece when ac-
tion in the second round of
the GFL's 8-team Premier
League continued at the
GFC ground on Friday.
Pele, struggling at second
from the bottom, and desperate
for points made full use of a de-
pleted Beacon side to achieve
victory by a 3-1 margin and
earn three valuable points. Bea-
con without five of their regu-
lar starters due to injuries and
suspensions were losing for the
first time in the League but still
occupy second place in the
table with 20 points.
- Among the missing starters
for Beacon were forward
Sherwin Grimes with damaged
ligaments and midfielder
Jermain Willis, a cracked instep.
Both players are in casts and
out for the rest of the season.
The other key players to
be sidelined due to accumu-

lated yellow cards were for-
wards Nigel Denny and
Oreilly Small as well as de-
fender Sherwin Bailey.
The card-filled encounter
got off to a red start as early as
the 4th minute of play when
Pele's forward Norris Carter was
given marching orders by referee
Wayne 'Harry' Joseph for a vio-
lent tackle.
National midfielder Dirk Ar-
cher gave the gold shirts the lead
7 minutes later as-he headed
home from a Troy Kellman cor-
ner kick. *
Pele increased the lead in the
20th minute when the
dreadlocked national forward
Konatta Manning collected a
well-measured square from cap-
tain Shawn Bishop going down
the left and beat the keeper to
his left with a right-footed shot.
Within ten minutes of
their celebration Pele were
down to nine as defender De-
von 'Starry' Edinboro was
ejected for serious foul play
on Jermain Tulloch who was
booked for the said play. In
the meantime, Pele's
Solomon Austin and Travis
Grant also received yellow
One minute from the half,

veteran Mortimer Stewart in a
return rescue-mission effort,
pulled one back for Beacon with
a timely header at the near post
from a Paul Daniels right side
cross. The former national for-
ward who last represented his
club at this level in 1999 showed
he still has the appetite for scor-
ing as he did in 1995 to help
Beacon win the GFL's League
and the Kashif and Shanghai
After the break, defender
Sheik Kamal, in his return game
since being out with injury,
joined the list of yellow-carded
players as he was booked in the
57th minute. Five minutes from
full time, the Bishop-'Natta'
combination delivered again to
seal the issue, if ever there was
one, beyond doubt. Bishop who
will soon leave the country for
Trinidad to play semi pro sent
the perfect comer kick to find
the unchallenged head of 'Natta'
for his third goal of the compe-
Referee Joseph then ironi-
cally, issued his third red card
four minutes from the end as
Beacon's Otis Jameson was sent
off for violent tackle.
It was Pele's third win of
the League and carried them

one position higher to 6th on
13 points, switching places
with GFC who have a game
in hand and are two points
In the first game of the
double-header, the Army
wasted several clear-cut chances
against a 10-man Tigers side for
all but the opening nine minutes
of the 2-2 draw. Sweeper back
Shermon David who was guilty
of a violent tackle was shown
the red card by referee Walson
With the Tigers' defence in
disarray, Seon Brewley gave the
soldiers the initiative in the 11th
minute and then stretched it fur-
ther in the 36th minute with his
sixth goal of the competition. It
was a half dominated by the
Army whose missed opportu-
nities would come back to haunt
them in the second segment.
A rejuvenated Tigers took
the attack to the soldiers on the
resumption and after ten min-
utes of constant pressure, the
inspirational midfielder and cap-
tain Shawn Beveney reduced the
lead with his second consecu-
tive goal from as many games.
Fifteen minutes later the
nippy and talented Stellon
David converted the
equaliser to help the Tigers
to 14 points while the Army
progressed to 16 to maintain
fourth position.

Carlton Wheelers

annual track and

cycle meet today

TODAY'S feature 25-lap race
should be a scorcher in the
Carlton Wheelers annual
track cycle meet, with the re-
turn of Dwayne Gibbs and
Gordon Kennedy from St
Martin to challenge home-
based riders af the Everest
Cricket Club ground.
The local pack should be
led by Jude Bently, Warren
McKay, Junior Niles, John
Charles and Toney Simon.
However, Bently's partici-
pation in the meet hangs on a
decision of the Guyana Cycling
Federation (GCF) for ungentle-
manly behaviour, yesterday, at
the end of the James Fowler
Memorial meet, staged by
Kaieteur Cycle Club at the Na-
tional Park.
Bently vociferously pro-
tested his disqualification from
a race following a jostle with an-
other rider during an earlier race.
But his protests were littered
with expletives as he unleashed
his wrath on fellow cyclists, of-
ficials and sponsors.

President of Carlton
Wheelers, Hassan Mohamed,
yesterday told Chronicle
Sport that heicould not say
definitely if Bently would be
allowed to compete in today's
"He has'dohe nothing to me
personally, although his out-
burst was also directed to fed-
eration officials. The club
(Kaieteur) will have to first
make a report to federation, af-
ter which a decision will be
taken. Until that is done, he is
free to ride in the meet."
Bently has been dominating
recent senior meets, more sig-
nificantly, lapping the field to
win the feature 60-lap race of

ERE, we explore how simple exercises
Hcan help you to become a more skilled
and sensitive lover and partner.
The process of falling in love may be one of the most
heady and intoxicating experiences that life has to offer.
Couples in the first throes of love are bathed in romance an
important ingredient in good sex.
It's later on in relationships when you start to notice that
your partner has faults just like everyone else that working
at romance becomes a necessity.
Contrary to popular belief, you cannot stay in love for ever.
Most people manage to sustain that special 'love high' for six
months to a year. When it eventually wears off, the mistake
that many people make is to panic, tell themselves that they
have fallen out of love and break up.
The truth is that although the next stage of a relationship
may be less breathtaking, it offers a great deal in terms of con-
tentment, emotional stability and day-to-day happiness. As long
as you remember romance...

To man\ people romance means red ros-s. chocuiales and

candle-lit dinners. But another way of approaching romance is
to tailor your gestures to your partner's need and tastes it is
more about thoughtfulness.
This could mean giving your partner a book by his favourite
writer or making her sandwiches to take to work when you
know she's too busy to take a lunch break.
A romantic gesture is anything that says: 'I love and care
for you.' But don't forget that'all the romantic gestures in the
world are no substitute for physical affection. When we are
touched, held and kissed on a daily basis, it makes us feel loved
and sexually alive. "

Go on a date with your partner, just the two of you. Being

When we imagine hot, passionate sex, we tend to think of

Ask him or her to concentrate on breathing deeply. Make
the circles bigger and then smaller again. Vary the pressure.
Finally, using your fingertips, apply static pressure on ei-

The glitz and glamour of current

By Stacey Bess

WHAT started out as essentials for
covering humankind's nakedness and
protection for our feet have evolved
into high-class drama of fashion.

COZETHA with her shoes and other glitzy items (Picture by Winston Oudkerk)

Apparel has become a para-
doxical potpourri of uniqueness
and current universal trends of
fashion. Usually people prefer
a distinctive look. However,
many tend to be swayed by
fresh waves in the fashion mi-
lieu that are yet to permeate the
global market.
Case in point, shoes!
About three years ago, as the
wheel of the fashion cycle turned,
I was mocked for daring to wear a
pair of conspicuously 'pointed tip'
shoes that I had inherited from a
New York benefactor (New York
is one of the world's top three fash-
ion centres). Now pointed tips,
curled pointed tips that closely re-
semble those worn by storybook
characters, and other post century
features, are emerging in a contem-
porary and elegant class of shoes
-onthelocal market.
hood was nurtured by trends ot
the 50s and 60s, just last week,
taunted one of my colleagues for
wearing an en vogue wedge-
heeled shoe. He called it "old
Generally, designers decide
what is trendy. As they create
new designs they showcase
them at fashion shows. With the
Guyanese fashion designing in-
dustry still mushrooming, inevi-
tably, international fashion is
what predominantly influences
local style.
Over the last few months,
the world's greatest fashion
centres New York, Paris and
Milan have powered glitzy
shoes into the market place.
Guyanese are catching on. The
dominant design features are
pointed tip mules of soft fabric
on upper side, lavishly, but
tastefully embellished with
beads, sequins, and stones;
some with relaxing stump heels,
others with extravagant stilet-
Those who study fashion
say that this shoe trend is in-
fluenced mainly by the Elizabe-
than era when Queen Elizabeth
reigned. The queen's outfits
were heavily beaded. The supple

fabrics and rich detailing of con-
temporary shoes are definitely
a signature of the English pal-
ace in the day of Queen Eliza-
beth. The pointed tip cut is said
to be a throwback to the 18th
century, while the coiled
pointed tip has a European
stamp from the medieval era or
45th century.
Last week, the Sunday
Chronicle checked out the latest
in shoes here. We spoke with
shoe importers and retailers,
who shared how they keep
abreast with fashion develop-
ments and how they access
Although London, Los An-
geles, Toronto and Hong Kong
are also leading fashion centres
and manufacturers of clothing
and shoes, local merchants have
pointed to other promising pro-

She plans on breaking into the
Brazil market soon.
As we complimented her on
the unique selection of shoes,
she said that being able to
choose distinguishing items is "a
gift from Father."

Spokeswoman for the Dis-
count Store, Regent Street,
Georgetown, Savita
Ramsammy, said that shoes are
purchased directly from manu-
facturers. The manufacturers
send catalogues of samples to
keep the local merchants abreast
of the latest fashion trends and
to make appropriate choices for
the local market. Ms.
Ramsammy said that the store's
owners also travel abroad and
scout for new styles in order to
stay in contention in the prevail-
ing fashion scene.
"How do you know what
customers will like," the Sunday

Chronicle asked.
Ms. Ramsammy believes
that experience in shoe merchan-
dising has generated a sense of
what the Guyanese populace
deems fashionable. She ac-
knowledged, however, that
sometimes, customers' tastes are
unpredictable. Thus the Dis-
count Store strives to stock a
wide variety of shoes in an at-
tempt to satisfy a cross-section

of buyers.
Cozetha Garrett, a Regent
Street vendor, gets most of her
shoes from Suriname. According
to her, shoppers love the glam-
orous shoes and she sells at
least six pairs of them each day.
A stall at 155 Vendors Ar-
cade, Georgetown, caught our
attention. The owner, Rochelle
Pollard, travels mainly to New
York and Suriname for the hot
picks that she has on display.

In a classic experiment inspired by Piaget's work, a
young child is shown a story told with dolls. A bov doll

THERE is no dentist
who is an angel just
like how there are
no angel professional of the
liberals arts. I know for a
fact that the expectation of a
significant financial income
is a major factor in choosing
dentistry as a career. This
fact by itself is enough to
eliminate a significant
amount of much-needed
social compassion and moral
integrity, especially in free
enterprise societies such as
Guyana. Furthermore, in
most cases, any dentist who
is considered by the patient
to be incompetent in reality
is nothing but a dishonest
The most common wrong-
doing of dentists is their failure
to routinely carry out a compre-
hensive examination of every
new patient. This includes
blood pressure, X-rays, blood
tests, medical history, etc, fol-

lowed by thorough diagnosis
and detailed treatment planning.
Many complications may arise
because of failure to adhere to
such standard procedures. The
second most common error per-
petrated is neglecting to make
frequent reviews of their work
on patients so as to evaluate
success or failure.
Rarely is the dentist
motivated to be zealous in
the practice of home care of
his own family members. He
is rarely active in lay groups
where he would take his
correct place as an important
teacher, consultant, and.
conscience who stimulates
other teachers to be
missionaries for oral care.
A patient does not have to

be a child to automatically adopt
a negative and oppositional at-
titude to a dentist who they
perceive to be highly authoritar-
ian and who displays overt and
covert rage when the patient
takes too much time to learn a
procedure or does not carry it
out to the dentist's satisfaction.
Too often, the dentist suc-
cumbs to the temptation of per-
forming contraindicated proce-
dures for the sake of money.
Dentists seldom advise patients
against pursuing certain proce-
dures, knowing fully well that
these are impractical and impru-
dent. Some dentists would refer
the patient to a colleague with
the proverbial attitude of
Pontius Pilate's 'washing of the
hands' believing that this guilt
can be transferred to another
person. The act of capitalising
on a situation of pain, despera-
tion, wealth, ignorance or senil-
ity, is the worst sin a dentist
could commit.
Sometimes when the pa-
tient exhibits characteristics that
suggest that cost is of no con-
sequence to him or her, an ex-
ploitative instinct or greed
creeps into some dentists' mind
and they take advantage of the
situation. After all, they

rationalise, they became dentists
for the money in the first place
so what is the big issue? Also,
many dentists refrain from tell-
ing patients the cost of a service
before executing it. The strategy
behind this is for the patient to
nurture the feeling of being in-

The impropriety existing
within the practice of
dentistry in Guyana can be
diminished tremendously if
two things happen. First,
there must be a
comprehensive update of the
laws governing the dental
practice including a detailed
code of ethics with stiff
penalties for violation.
Secondly, the public must be
educated as to their rights as
consumers, the obligations of
the practitioner, and how to
seek and obtain legal redress
whenever there is
malpractice, all taken within
the context that unqualified
practitioners (quacks) should
never be sought after for any
type of dental treatment.

In his defence, the appellant
maintained his love for his wife
and child, and having denied
chopping them up, rested his
case on the caution statement he
gave to the Police on the day

Continuing his judgment,
Justice :Crane noted: "The
fact or transaction in issue of
which the Court was seized
was whether the appellant
had murdered his wife and
child. The words overheard
by the' prosecution witnesses,
Ramcharran and Etwarie,
from their very nature can
leave one in no doubt they
were both spontaneous and
contemporaneous with those
physical acts of which the
prosecution complained.
"Although hearsay, these
words can leave no one in doubt
that at the time they were
overheard, the appellant, who
was the only other person in
the room below, was present,
and while engaged in the act of
chopping up Rajendra, heard
them at the time they were
spoken. They were words
which constituted, accompanied
and explained the fact or
transaction in issue; and they
were therefore within the
doctrine of res gestae as they
served to identify the
appellant" with the murder on
his wife and child.
At this stage, Justice Crane
cited the headnote Teper R.
(1), to adequately express the
rationale of the admission into
evidence of hearsay as part of
the res gestae which 'I think is

very relevant here ([1952] 2 All
ER al page.447):
'It read: "The rule .that in a
criminal.trial hearsay evidence is
Sadmiissible if it forms part of the
.res'.'gestae is based Ion the
* propositions that the 'human
utterance is both a fact and
means of communication and
that. human action may be so
interwoven with words that the
significance of the action cannot
*be understood without the
*correlative words and ,the
-dissociation of the words from
the -action would impede the
discovery of the truth.
S"It .is essential that the
words sought to be proved -by
hearsay 'should be, if not
absolutely contemporaneous
with the action or event, at least
so clearly associated with it that
they are part of the thing being
done, and so an item or part of
the real evidence and not merely
a reported statement. Where the
.words are sought to be proved
for the purpose of identification
in a criminal trial the action or
event with which the words
must be associated in the
commission of the crime
itself, and the said evidence
shall only be admitted if it
satisfies the strictest test of
close association with the crime
in time, place *and
Adhering to the law and
the circumstances of the case,
Justice Crane had said: "I
entertain no doubt whatever
about the admissibility of
such evidence. I would
accordingly -dismiss the
appeal and would affirm the
conviction and sentence".

Drafting: Writing a Paragraph
In the drafting stage of writing you will write down;
ideas in sentences and paragraphs;: Each paragraph
should have a topic or main-idea :sentence that is.sup-
ported by details. .:.
Reminder A Paragraph is a. group of related sentences.
that work together to develop one main idea.
Look at the paragraphs below. See how the writer states
the main idea in each paragraphlin the model taken from
a-Literature book,. ,

object poking, from the sand. Probing carefully I uncover

Some items were touchingly personal. A long the

"DANA CATAL D GUSMA" (short for Dona Catalina de
Guzman) was also visible. Later research revealed that.
she was a widow residing in Manila in 1634. Had she
been aboard the stricken vessel? What was her ultimate
fate? No one knows.
William M. Mathers, "Nuestra Senora de
la Concepcion" :

See how the first sentence introduces the
main idea: the:author finds a.small metal
object. The supporting sentences describe it
in detail

In the second paragraph the firstsentence
makes ot observation above the nature of
some itemsthat were found .How do the
following sentences support the;first?

Topic Sentence .
In many paragraphs the main idea is stated in a topic
sentence, and then all the details in the paragraph de-.
velop the idea. The wheel illustrates the vital rote of a
topic sentence in controlling the paragraph, all the de-
tails must not only be on the same topic, but must also
help support the idea in the topic sentence.








We have seen how the topic sentence comes at the
beginning of each' of the Literature writer's
paragraphs above. Sometimes, though, the topic
sentence comes at the end or in the middle.
Wherever it i,; it should tell two things: what.your
topic is and what your paragraph will say about iti
Notice how the writer used a topic sentence to keep
the paragraph onritrak.

A paragraph written by a student: ,

In investigating my mothers family history, I think I
have discovered the origin of many of my own traits.
.My grandfather, who enjoyed listening to music as
loud as any teenager today, willed me his love of
music. My grandmother taught me to be respdn-
sible and open-minded. Because two of my aunts.
were teachers,; I learned to value education. I in-
herited my dark, sarcastic' sense of humour from
.one of my uncles. He would play bizarre practical
jokes, and of many I was the victim. My interest in
history and politics came from my great-grandfather,
once the mayor of :a small Philippine province. Fi-
nally, I credit .my mother with teaching me to be in-
dependent, strong-minded, and determined in going
after whatsoever goals I set.

Addition Revision

1. An addend is a number that is to be added to
another number or addend.

2. The sum is the answer that you get when you
add addends.

See this:
356+403 = 759

The number sentence above has two addends
whose sum is 759.

The grouping property of the addition


NOTE: You are free to add 80 and 16, and then
add 23 to the answer. Or you can add 16 and
23, and then add 80 to the answer. Either ap-
proach will give the sum of 119. Try this method
using other challenging sets of numbers. You
will love it.

Brackets in Addition

Brackets can be used to let you know what num-
bers must be worked out first.
Look at the examples below.

(80 + 12) + 23

92 + 23 = 115

80 + (12 + 23)


REMINDER: You can make up your own story
sums, and then use brackets to solve them.
Brackets can help you be proficient in working
with the grouping property of addition. Remem-
ber that only sufficient practice can help you
achieve mastery in the solutions of additions.

Oriental costumes and the special nuances fashioned by arms and hands are of particular importance in Shakuntala
(Pictures by Delano Williams)
By Raschid Osman

If the dance is the Cinderella of the arts, then the kathak is the glass
slipper and the prince and the coach and four all rolled into one.
The kathak has been around for well over 2000 years, danced originally by the Brahmins as they
worshipped their God. Much later, it was refined and made more sophisticated in the courts of the
Mughal emperors. Today, there is an upsurge in the popularity of this splendid dance form, characterized

by stomping feet with ankle bells adding their distinctive carillon,
and lavish, whirling pirouettes alternating with quiet, meditative cho-
reography when the story being told demands this.
For kathak dancing is story-telling, very much like the western
ballet is traditionally a story in dance.
Of course the similarities end right there. For this Indian dance,
with its acute nuances enacted to the unique and awesome rhythm
cycles of the tabla, the instrument so essential to the kathak, is in a
class all by itself.
At the Indian Cultural Centre in Georgetown, Hemant
Pamwar and his wife Vaishali have created a kathak ballet us-
ing the Shakuntala story from the Mahabharata.
Hemant Pamwar created the choreography and music for the
ballet, while his wife Vaishali wrote the script and did the narra-
tion, and Philip Francis arranged the music and was in charge of
special effects.
One departure from the traditional instruments used in classi-
cal Indian dance was the use of a keyboard. Mrs. Pamwar explained
that they couldn't find a sitar for the string section so necessary to
the Indian orchestration, and the next best thing to create the strings
effect was a keyboard.
The Pamwars are pleased at the reception the ballet re-
ceived at its National Cultural Centre performance last week,
with those who saw it literally gushing at what was for many
a unique theatre experience.
This is the first time that an Indian ballet has been staged at the
Centre with original music and choreography, and performed largely
by Guyanese who are students at the Indian Cultural Centre.
"There were 23 dancers in the show, with nine musicians and
chorus, and they were all students of the Centre," boasts Mrs.
Mrs. Pamwar says the reason for staging of Shakuntala was
"Historically, the story tells of how India got its name, and
while Guyanese indulge in their very own version of Indian
dance, at weddings and what have you, we thought we should

Eggplant belongs to the
family Solanaceae and its scien-
tific name is Solanum
melongena. It is used mainly as
a cooked vegetable. The nutri-
tional value is relatively high.

There are three varieties
mainly cultivated in Guyana and
there are open pollinated. These.
varieties are long purple, Pink
and White and Black beauty.

The seed is initially sown in
seed trays or seedbed then trans-
planted four weeks after germi-
nation. It is grown on a wide.
range of soil type, but prefer-
ably suited clay soil rich in or-
ganic matters. It grows well
within the pH range of 5.5 -6.5,
if the pH is lower then lime- *
stone should be applied 4-6:
weeks before transplanting at
rate of 2000 lb./acre (for rise by
1 pH).
Transplanting is best car-
ried out in the afternoon or any
time during a cool day so as to
resist transplanting shock. The
recommended spacing should be
90cm between rows and 60cm
along rows (18,500 plants/hect-
After transplanting irriga-
tion should be done once daily
for 5 days thereafter twice
weekly during the dry period.

A soil test should be done
to determine the fertilizer re-
quirement. As a guide the fol-
lowing recommendation should
be followed;

Urea 272 kg/ha
30% at transplant-
ing (4.4g/plant)
40% at flowering
30% at Fruit set

TSP 108 kg/ha
All at transplanting

MoP 136kg/ha
50% at transplant-
ing (3.7g/plant)
50% at flowering

If organic manure is being
applied, then synthetic fertilizer
rate should be lowered.


There can cause heavy
loses, by feeding on the leaves.
Resulting in reduce plant
growth and killing plant at early
stages. Spraying with insecti-
cides such as Admire, Regent,
Vertimec and Relevo will control
the flies.

Lacewing Bugs
There are small bugs that
feed on the under side of the
leaves resulting in a pale yel-
lowish colour and then eventual
death of the leaves. Spraying
with insecticides such as Vydate
L, Basudin and Pestac will ef-
fectively reduce the insect

Flea Beetles
These are small black scale
insects that feed on both sides
of the leaves, leaving many
holes on the leaves. Spraying
with Actara, Pestac and Vydate
L will reduce the pest popula-


Bacterial Wilt
This is a bacterial infection
that causes heavy loses in the
wet season, especially on soils
that are acidic and water logged.
The first symptoms are wilting
of. the entire plant while the
leaves are still green. The con-
trol measure is a good cultural
practices plus liming the soil to
the require pH.

This is a fungus that affects

the fruit at the ripening stages
and can cause heavy losses. The
symptoms appear as a brown
and slightly sunken lesion.
Spraying with fungicide such as
Maximo, Benlate, Trimiltox and
Mancozeb will effective reduce
the disease incidence:.

Harvesting begins 10-12
weeks after transplanting and
maximum yield is achieved
within the first 6 weeks of har-
vest. Yield of eggplant ranges
from 60 80 tones per hectare




Ochro belongs to the fam-
ily Malvaceae and its scientific
name is Abelmoschus
esculentus. It is widespread
used as a cooked or steam veg-
etable with a very good nutri-
tive value.

Many local cultivars are be-
ing cultivated locally, while
there are some improved variet-
ies with good horticultural char-
acteristics. And these are
Clemson Spineless, Santa Cruz
and Emerald Green Velvet.

It is initially grown directly
by sowing seed into hole at a
spacing of 90cm between rows
and 60cm along rows i.e. ap-
proximately 18,500 plants per
hectare. The crop can be grown
in both wet and dry season and
any soil type with a pH of 5.5-
Irrigation is necessary for
germination, which would
take between 7-12 days after.

show a bit of Indian classical dance set to a story," she explains.
The Indian Cultural Centre was established in Georgetown 34 years ago and since that 6i
has been offering classes i.rnyiqsc and dance to interested Guyanese.
The Centre has. bcaltme'iwellspring of things cultural, and many Guyanese India
dance groups and soloists inow performing here and overseas were taught the art by in
structors at the Centre.
V. The Pamrnars ltlnt at the Centre is over, and they should be leaving around month-end.
*Thius does not mean that the work at the Centre will be interrupted." Mrs Pamwar said. g
"Other instructors are coming and the classes in music and dance will go on."
When rhe) leave, their legacy to culture in Guyana would be a greater appreciation for the4
kathak and the instrument with which this dance form goes hand in hand, the tabla.
It is in this heightened appreciation of each other's culture that the ethnic potpourri we have
inherited as Gu)anese becomes more meaningful.
S'. Needless to aN this appreciation needs to be encouraged, promoting all the ethnic strands thaO
i. make up the splendid wea\e of the Guyanese culture
This area of enrichment is hardly one to be ignored.

E earliest record of
Christ Church
seems to be a letter
dated June 27, 1837, from
Mr. J.E. Eversley, Registrar
of the Diocese of Barbados,
enclosing a mandate from
Bishop Coleridge
authorising the Rev. W.P.
Austin, as ecclesiastical
Commissary for Guiana, on
visiting and inspecting a
proprietary chapel for the
due and lawful performance
of Divine Service.
The "Proprietary Chapel"
referred to was Christ Church,
which was erected in 1836 with
the hope that Bishop Coleridge,
who was to have visited the
colony in that year, would have
consecrated it. The very mild
ritual observed at St. George's
offended some of the European
worshippers and so some stal-
wart Protestants made up their
minds to establish this Propri-
etary Church.
They appealed for land and
nearly succeeded in obtaining
permission to erect their build-
ing on the Parade Ground. Two
lots of land were however, ob-
tained in Waterloo Street and
the Church was soon erected.
These lots, 171 and 172,
Cummingsburg, were the prop-
erty of John Bagot.
They were transported on
December 14, 1842, to John
Lucie Smith, Jnr., George Will-
iam Wells and William Branch
Pollard, Trustees of Christ
Church. The other original trust-
ees were William Augustus
Parker, Ellis John Boughton,
Evan McLauren Smith, John
Gibbs, Hugh Rogers, Charles


Bean, William Edward Pierce,
John Lane, Charles Benjamin,
James Anthony Parker Goring
and John Groscart Reed.
In 1836, the Church was
completed and licensed by the
Bishop of Barbados, but neither
the Bishop.of Barbados nor the
Rev. James Lugar, Rector of St.
George's, looked with favour on
the new church, and thus,
Christ Church was somewhat
On July 22, 1837, Mr.
Bryer, who had been appointed
as Pastor of the Church, unfor-
tunately lived less than six
weeks as Minister as he suc-
cumbed to yellow fever on Au-
gust 29, 1837.
Rev. Wm. Fox, M.A., of
Trinity College, Dublin, was the
next Incumbent. Under his guid-
ance, the activities of the church
grew over the next 30 years. He
established schools of all kinds
- infant-schools, day schools,
night schools schools for men
and for girls. There was also a
Sunday School, Friendly Societ-
ies and Clubs, a Widows' Aid
Society, a Book Depository, a
Lending Library and many other
Galleries were erected
not only in the west, north
and south, but also at the east
end of the original building.
The tower and an organ were
added to improve the appear-
ance of the very simple
though capacious building.
The funds of the Church
were not sufficient for the
maintenance of the Incum-
bent and the fabric and to
carry on the service of the
Church. It was in debt and
when Archdeacon Austin was
consecrated Bishop in 1842,

steps were taken to sanctify
it, but as it was in debt, this
could not be done. The Com-
bined Court was petitioned
for help: one of the reasons
given why this church should
be supported being that it was
the only one in the town that
held evening services and the
petition was granted. On No-
vember 21, 1843, Bishop Aus-
tin, in the presence of the
then Governor of the colony,
blessed the Church.
From June 1857, Christ
Church was licensed for mar-
riages but the marriage fees had
to be handed over to the Rector
of St. George's. In 1837, Holy
Communion was administered
weekly and in 1849, only once
a month at the 8 and 11 a.m.
In 1882, the church was
further enhanced with the erec-
tion of a Chancel under the guid-
ance of Rev. Thomas Jordan
Moulder who was also an archi-
tect. He introduced the Choir
Boys and a surpliced Choir.
Archdeacon Josa was appointed
his successor in 1890. The mag-
nificent stained glass window
behind the pulpit was erected to
his memory by public subscrip-
tion in December 1914.
A large striking clock with
a dial, above the central entrance
of the church was later added.
The iron rails and gates and con-
crete structure in front of the
Church were erected in the
memory of the late Bishop G.P.
Austin in 1905 and there is a
marble tablet, suitably inscribed,
midway in the concrete struc-
ture facing the roadway.
The interior of the church is
adorned with gifts and tablets.
These are of immense interest

and recall a number of old ad-
herents. Notable features in-

The marble baptismal
font near the main entrance
which was erected in
memory of F.A. Winter,
Warden of the Church, from
1895 to 1902 and who died
on September 2, 1902.

The ornate wooden al-
tar that was presented in
memory of Josephine
Gibson Bosh Reitz on June
7, 1917. On this Altar, there
are a latge brass cross, two
candlesticks and a book-
rest, given in memory of
Ethel Marion.

A fine brass Altar rail
which was presented by the
late G.A.H. Goring in
memory of his daughter
Rosabella who died on
April 14, 1924,

The ornate Chancel
screen and gates which
were presented to the church
in memory of Isabul Moa
Maggs, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. C.J. Maggs and who
died on October 25, 1919.

In the Chancel are several
large paintings. These include
'The Three Wise Men', which
was given in memory of the sis-
ters Elizabeth, Mary and Sussan
Alleyne, William Fresson and
Darson, benefactors of the
Church, 'The Four Evangelists'
St Luke in memory of Arthur
Weber. St. John, in memory of
the opening of the Masonic
Lodge, the Silent Temple, 'St.
Matthew', in memory of Canon
Josa's family and 'St. Mark', in
memory of Leon Jules Colvin
and Dorothy Engenie Colvin.
All of these have small brass or
silver plates bearing suitable in-

In the body of the Church,
there are a number of tablets -
one to the piemorN of. John
Eucie Smith, LI.D., a distin-
guished advocate of the Bar of
this colony, who died on April,
10, 1844, at the age of 48
years. He was one of the .first
movers in the building of the
Church and many fellow colo-
nists erected that monument to
his memory.
A brass tablet recalls memo-
ries of the Rev. Wm. Fox, M.A.,
who died on September 3, 1877
aged 69 years and also his wife,
Jane, who died on January 11,
Others were put up to the

Smith, M.D., Colonial Sur-
geon, who died on January

friends and colonists; Mrs.
Jane Culpeper, who died on

T.he role of the arts in

social well-being

and economic progress

Terence Roberts
Ts O dance has always been an expression of the will to love. Look-
ing back into the era of African slavery throughout the Americas,
the wilful desire of bonded people to dance was not an expression
of their belief-in a fantasy life of false happiness, but a constructive method
of personal and collective survival. The Afro-North Americans built them-
selves as a people and culture on the emotional and creative nourishment
of music and dance primarily, until the culture and business of musical in-
genuity became the main instrument of their independent material well-be-
ing, as well as a reflection of their worth as a people both in the eyes of
others around the world, and to themselves.

The same benefits of music,
in an emotional, cultural and fi-
nancial manner, became a main
road to success for a huge num-
ber of Latin-Americans of Afri-
can, European and mixed races.
But it is notable that the ben-
efits of musical and artistic de-.
velopment on a broad scale
were not sown and sustained by,
Afro and other Guyanese in
sharp contrast to their Latin-
American neighbours, even'
though, for example, since the
1790s, groups of Afro-'
Guyanese had been provided
with drums, fifes, recorder flutes
and mandolins from the Dutch
governor, Van Battenburg, per-
haps the greatest fun-loving and
friendly colonial governor in
Guyana's history.
These early Afro-Guyanese
musicians and dancers quickly
mastered their musical instru-
ments, performing for the pub-
lic with such excellence on the
18th century lawns of Main
Street's Government House,
that Van Battenburg and other
European residents regarded

their performance as superior to
what their own colonial musi-
cians displayed.
Unfortunately, Guyana's
fragmented colonial history,
where rivalries between a hand-
ful of colonial powers caused
the early nation lo lose cohesive
continuity in many vital areas,
became a negative tradition of
fragmentation, abandoned
projects, and instability sus-
tained in several ital areas of
national life right down to the
present. .
For example. Van
Battenburg's perceptive insight,
and encouragement of the mu-
sical talents of Afro-Guyanese,
which led to the first formation
of local Masquerade dancing,
bands (whose rhythms quite re-
sembled that of Brazilian Samba
bands) two hundred years ago,
was not sustained or developed
after the passing of Dutch rule
in Guyana, so that the Mas-
querade bands we still see to-
day, thankfully, are mere frag-
ments of the developed musi-
cianship and dancing talents of

their original founders two hun-
dred years ago.
Moreover, with the coming
of British colonial rule in early
19th century Guyana and the
arrival of masses of Portuguese
immigrants in their dafk and
colourful clothes, who, it is re-
corded, roamed the city streets
in small male and female trou-
; badour musical groups playing
their guitars passionately and
singing with that famous melo-
dious Portuguese voice, and
also Orientals who arrived laden
with numerous Indian instru-
ments, were greeted with no co-
hesive cultural encouragement.
Only their labour, and Anglo
Colonial culture mattered. Con-
sequently, no local contempo-
rary musical culture developed
and emerged comparable to the
highly original and economically
successfully musical achieve-
ments of their Latin American
neighbours, even though a good
number of achievements of able
and known Guyanese musi-
cians of every race and mixture
have long existed. Notice the

The role of the arts ...

rights, funds, flexible human
laws, our self-development
and material progress. Such
progress occurs only with the
willful pursuit of education,
self-reliance, and dedication
both through local innovation
in business and the Arts, and
local support for it.
Without a strong public be-
lief in such a road to progress.
a culture of complete depen-
dence, instead of mutual coop-
eration, develops, expressing it-
self in endless talk. arguments,
speculation, even graft and vio-
lence. but rarely coming to con-
structive agreements and
achievements, since that largely
results from practical self-moti-
vation. To remain uneducated

and ignorant can therefore lead
to excessive organisational and
political dependence, rather
than ambition.
The pursuit of serious or
developed music, dance, Fine
Arts, creative writing, acting
and film-making, demands
focused concentration, skill
and dedication, which can be
of enormous benefit to a
sense of pride in one's
personal- and national
identity, the rise of economic
development in creative
industries, and genuine
respect and support from
developed nations. This goal
is easier achieved by
searching out knowledge in
detail from old respected
sources, particularly books,
rather than following easy

popular or familiar trends.
The progressive role of the
Arts demands promotional risks.
For example, a person or per-
sons who intend to open a seri-
ous local art gallery will hardly
sustain success unless local art-
ists constantly provide serious
innovative and progressive local
art that is not quickly or easily
understood, appreciated, then
Art exists to endlessly hold
out attention and generate
thought, not just induce admi-
ration of craft. It should not be
easily consumed like a bottle of
beer or glass of rum. The same
demand of unusual style, con-
tent, and method, should be ap-
plied to the creation of local
music, dance. Literature, acting
and film-making.

Of course, in Guyana,
many people are quick to in-
sist that without wealth,
nothing can be started. But
the history of the Arts
proves another story: The
greatest beloved novels by
the world's greatest writers
were written simply by hand
with pen and paper; the
greatest music, from classical
to jazz, were often tapped
out, or sketched on a bor-
rowed piano, or hummed, be-
fore all else. The greatest

films had their scenes
sketched or written down.
Nevertheless, money helps
the industry of the Arts to de-
velop, thus contributing to so-
ciety and nation. So far, at least
in 2002, advertisements for
'Go-Invest Guyana' have
failed to mention investment
opportunities for a local need
to have proper cinemas with
the best old and new films,
the scope for a local film
studio; the almost total lack
of art stores with paints,

canvas, paper, etc.; the need
for outlets with wide selections
of serious music on sale, or mu-
sic stores offering flutes, wind
instruments, percussion, trum-
pets, saxophones, etc.; even
bookstores offering used books
of the best international litera-
The role of the arts is not
one of idle play, but encour-
ages the feeling of hope and
contentment, which acts like
a reward for our pursuit of
work as creativity.

ISc ie nee :
Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll look at What is the use of the sta-
mens? The Anatomy of a Flower.

What is the use of the stamens?
If you have compared an anther taken from a
bud with another taken from an open flower you
will notice that the latter has split open and is
covered with yellow dust. Looking at this dust
through a good lens, you can see that it consists
of small, round bodies? These are known as
pollen grains. (The pollen grains of a Hibiscus



are large for example and you may be able to
see them even if your lens is not very strong.)

When examining a Stigma, are there any pol-
len grains on it? If so, how did they get there? If
you watch the flowers in your yard during a sunny
day, you will see different kinds of bees, butter-
flies and other insects visiting them. Catch some
of these insects if you can with a net and look for
the pollen grains sticking to their hairy bodies.
As they go from flower to flower they carry to the
stigmas pollen brushed from the anthers.

Why do insects visit flowers? Watch an insect
pushing its head towards the bottom of the flower.
It tries sucking the sweet juice called nectar,
which is produced by the flower for the purpose
of attracting insects.

Can a fruit be formed if no insect visits the flower?

Experiment: Tie a small paper envelope round
an unopened bud, still attached to the plant. A
suitable envelope can be made from a piece of
paper folded in two and the edges joined with
adhesive tape. Leave the envelope around the
bud for abort three days, when adjacent, uncov-
ered flowers are beginning to set fruit. Then re-
move the envelope and see whether a fruit has-
formed. What conclusions can you draw?
(a) If a fruit has formed;
(b) If it has not?

Can a fruit be formed if no pollen reaches the

Experiment:- Open a bud and carefully remove all
the anthers, using a pair of forceps ora pin. Be care-
ful notto damage the pistil. Then tie a bag round the
flower and wait for three days as before.


Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this Social Studies input. Please note
that most words that you know and use you learned
through listening, reading and writing. Keep on im-
proving your vocabulary! Love you.
Skills for Life
Making decisions: This skill is centred upon positive
reasoning, which means that every decision you make
must be a constructive one. For example, you can make
healthy decisions to be successful at your examination.
Problem solving is similar to the skill of decision-mak-
ing. It will help you get to know more about how to treat
problems you face at times in constructive manner. You
will see that the more information you know about a situ-
ation, the better it is to make a decision. You will also
become aware that you need to have a closer look at
different options as they present themselves, and to un-
derstand that different decisions have different effects on
a situation.
Creative thinking contributes to both decision-making
and problem solving. Creative thinking can help you be-
come adaptive and flexible in situations of your daily life
and make you not afraid of challenges!
Have you ever thought how some children get more marks
than others in their assignments? Those children apply
themselves to the questions in hand along with their situ-
ations and bring to them original interpretations.
Look at how some children write fluently and in good taste
while:others barely scratch some lines in composition
writing. Those successful ones have been reading and
keeping their eyes open to all that is going on around
them to use them back in some agreeable shape and
size in their writing. You can be successful likewise.

Descriptive Writing

Reminder: Good descriptive writing depends on the creation
of vivid word pictures and the organization of those picture!
into an effective pattern. Look at. how the writer, Stepher
King, organizes details in the following passage to let the
reader "see the scene.

Organise Details in Spatial Order
Reminder: Good descriptive writing depends upon, the effec
tive use of details, and.the organization of those detrls inht
meaningful patterns. .One natural way of organizing descrip
tive writing is to arrange details in spatial order,- that iSK left t
right, front to back, near to far, clockwise, or counterclock

A point to note: When you write descriptions, you can use
prepositional phrases, as Warner does, to establish spatie
relationships between objects.

Prepositional Phrases

Reminder A prepositional phrase is a group of words tha
begins with a preposition and usually ends with a noun or
pronoun, called the object of the preposition.

: voted against the idea. [Idea is the object of the preposition

A compound preposition is a preposition that is made up o
more than one word.

From page XIV
Representative of the pow-
erful anaconda, another sym-
bolic figure in the Amerindian
ethos, is a striking serpentine
motif that adorns many of the
objects on display such as
finely decorated beaded, aprons
and textiles.
A common belief among the
Wai-Wai peoples of Guyana and
Brazil is that women are de-'
scended from the mythical
peoples of the deep, known as
the Okoimo Yena, which, when
translated, means 'theAnaconda
People' who are regarded as a
powerful force in Amerindian
Other motifs can be found
echoed in the fine examples of
basketry, stools, and various
objects on display including ca-
noe paddles and ceramic bowls
- many of which depict revered
local wildlife such as the sloth
bear and the scorpion.
'Amazon to Caribbean', the
release says, displays a range of
early ceramic remains-that have-
contributed significantly to the
work of archaeologists in under-
standing pre-Colombian
Amerindian society. The care-
fully decorated remains have
also provided the key to track-
ing the movement of popula-
tions between mainland South
America and the Caribbean_
Antilles before and during the
arrival of the early-Europeans.

In its attempt to examine
the complex cosmology and
striking symbolism that have
formed the fabric of Amerindian

societies for generations, the
award-winning Forest Hill Mu-
seum has put under the spot-
light a fascinating array of ob-
jects,I from the beautifully-
crafted wood carvings depicting
the three main aspects of
Amerindian. mythology (the
Sky, Earth and Underworld) to
an ancient Taino three-pointed
stone used by shamans and heal-
ers. .
Another significant aspect
that is common to Amerindian
societies, Horniman says in its
release, is the universal produc-
tion and consumption of cas-.
sava. An indigenous South
American plant that is poison-
ous if not carefully prepared,
the cassava is a tuber.that has
to be grated in order to remove
the toxins.
Demonstrative of the re-
fined craftsmanship involved in
the production of by-products
from this staple is the number
of beautiful wood graters fea-
tured in the exhibition, which
also represent an enduring tra-
dition that has been passed
-down froir geertiHntiitogdniera-
The exhibition finally
highlights the valuable con-
tribution Amerindian culture
has made to the world and re-
veals how the origins of the
words tobacco and hammock
have made their way into ev-
- eryday English-usage.
As Horniman Museum's
Director, Ms Janet Vitmayer
"The cultural links between
the north Amazon and the Car-
ibbean Antilles is a relatively
.. unexplored subject, and lam de-.
lighted to offer our visitors the

opportunity to discover an ex-
citing 'new perspective on

" Xi"Afzoii to Cafib-eah', sfhe
said, "is a fitting grand finale to

As he recalled: "On arrival,
the chief of the village (Touchau) met us. After introducing ourselves, I was amazed to
hear that Chief Chekema's father worked with Nicholas Guppy during his research
expedition in the late 50s."
He had been looking forward to attend the traditional Wai-Wai ceremony, Shodewika,
a pre-Christmas activity in which the men celebrate after a successful two-week hunt, but
was to be disappointed as he had arrived too late.
To make amends, Arero was invited to a culture night organised by the Chief to show
him just how much fun he had missed out on. He recalled being "painted with striking
Wai-Wai patterns from natural red paint and adorned with Harpy Eagle feathers before
being presented with armlets and a feather headdress, [and that] after being applauded for
undergoing such a drastic transformation, took part in a stylised dance, [during which he
was] offered a palm drink from a vast aluminium container that was passed on to the next
As he recounted: "The chief, who was also painted and wore a feather
headdress, asked me in Wai-Wai what my name was. I replied: 'Oyosoti
Hassan (My name is Hassan)'. At which point he said that I was to be know
as Kaiwana (The Sun Fish) and, that as an honorary Wai-Wai, was welcome
to live with them if I wished. He then asked me what my name was again,
and I replied: Oyosoti KaiwanaL"'
Describing the moment as one of the highlights of his time spent living with the Wai-
Wais, Arero said: "The remaining days were occupied by interviews and documenting
various aspects of Wai-Wai culture," and that "through an exchange of goods, I was able to
acquire a number of items for the exhibition, including one cassava grater, a beautiful beaded
apron, ceremonial belts, and blow pipes among other things."
He said that after a moving farewell, he left wondering how the village would cope
with the increasing challenge to their cooperative and traditional ways of Amerindian life.
A village lad himself, having been born and raised in Kenya's Nyandarua District, Arero
said: "I knew from observing the youth that change was inevitable, but hoped that such
change need not eclipse the Wai-Wai's sustainable and unique way of life." -
A graduate of the Institute of African Studies, University of Nairobi and Chevening
Fellow, Arero once worked as Collections Administrator with the National Museum of
Kenya, and holds a Masters in Advanced Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas and a
Doctorate in Social Anthropology.
Currently a Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute and a board member of the
UK-based International Council of Museums, he had contributed to numerous publications
and research papers published by organizations such as the British Museum Press, the
national Museums of Kenya, and the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford.
He is quoted as saying once: From an early age, I have been fascinated by world
cultures and how they adapt to change especially in the light of globalisation and
the challenge it poses to marginalised communities around the world. The evolution
of cultural identity on both global and local scale is also a huge area of interest to
me, and this has manifested itself in an exciting new exhibition exploring
Amerindian heritage and the shaping of Caribbean culture."

sowing. There after irrigation is required once weekly in the
dry season.
A soil test should be done to determine the nutrient status of
the soil. The following fertilizers could be used as a guide;
Urea 180 kg/ha
45% at 2 weeks after germination 4.4g/plant)
55% at 50% fruit set (5.4g/plant)
TSP 90 kg/ha- all at two weeks after germination (4.9g/plant)
MoP 110 kg/ha
50% at 2 weeks after germination (3g/plant)
50% at Fruit set (3g/plant)
There are tiny brownish black insect feeding on the under side
of the leaves and on the fruits, they also attract ants colony. Spraying
with insecticides such as Vydate L, Basudin and Fastac will reduce
the pest population.
Mealy Bugs
There are small whites and pink bugs with a white coating over
they body. They feed on the fruit and flowers resulting in fruit drop.
Roughing infested plants and bum together with spraying of Vydate
L can reduce the spread of the bugs.
Cercospora Leaf Spot
This is a fungus that first symptoms are gray spots that gradu-
ally become dark spots on the leaves progressing to form circular
lesion with a hole in the center. It is a major problem during the
wet season. Spraying with Trimiltox, Maximo and Kocide will re-
duce the spread of the fungus significantly.
Sooty Mold
This is another fungus that affects the crop during the wet sea--
son. The symptoms first appears on the under side of the leave as
a dark mould covering the entire under leaves and it reduce growth
significantly. Spraying with Trimiltox, Bravo and Kocide in rota-
tion will reduce the disease incidence.
Harvesting begins 6-12 weeks after germination depending on

BEFORE we go any further
with this topic, it is important
that there is an understanding
about dogs' teeth the differ-
ent types of teeth, the erup-
tion, the numbers of teeth, the
difference between a pup's teeth
and those of an adult dog.

Puppies and kittens have
baby (or deciduous) incisors
(written as Di), baby canines
(written as Dc) and baby
premolars (written as Dp).
Then there are molars that only
adult dogs and cats have.

Puppies are born without

teeth. When four (3-5) weeks
have elapsed, the first baby
teeth appear (NB: these baby
teeth are called deciduous
At about four weeks of
age, the first baby teeth to
show themselves are the ca-
nines (those long teeth at the
side of the mouth). The pup
as well as the adult dog has
four canines one each in the
top jaw on the left and right
and the bottom jaw on the
left and right. Then, about a
week or so later, the incisors
(those in the front of the
mouth) begin to emerge.
Eventually, there will be 12
incisors three each on the
top jaw left and right side of
the imaginary median line,

A^ '

of Enterprise Gardens.

and 3 each on the bottom jaw
right and left of the middle
line as seen from the front.
The incisors to break through
the gum are the ones closest
to the imaginary middle line
of the upper and lower jaws
at the front. The second in-
cisors (next to the ones clos-
est to the middle line) and the
third incisors will all visibly
come through the gum by the
time six weeks have elapsed
(counted from the date of
birth. At about the same time
the premolars also begin to
arrive. There are three (3)
premolars on each side.of the
top and bottom jaws (12
premolars in all). Puppies do
not have molars these big
strong teeth at the back of the
mouth that adult dogs have.

So now, if we do our calcu-
lations correctly, the total num-
ber of deciduous teeth in pup-
pies is 28 4 canines, 12 inci-
sors and 12 premolars. They
should all be in the pup's mouth
by six weeks of age. Cats only
have two premolars on each side
of the bottom jaw. They have
three premolars on each side of
the top jaw.
Actually, the scientists have
developed a simple formula for
the baby teeth:

Dogs 2 x (Di3/3 Dcl/1
Dp3/3) = 28

Cats 2 x (Di3/3 Dcl/1
Dp3/2) = 26

NB: The capital 'D'
means 'deciduous' the com-
mon 'i', 'c' and 'p' mean baby
incisors, canines and

The '3' above the line after
'Di' means the 3 incisors in one
half of the top jaw; the '3' be-
low the line after 'Di', means

the 3 incisors in one half of the
bottom jaw, and so on. Then, of
course, you have to multiply
everything by '2' to arrive at the
total amount of teeth in both
halves of the top and bottom
I should mention that, gen-
erally speaking, the teeth of the
larger dog breeds (German Shep-
herds, Doberman Pinschers,
Rottweilers, etc) erupt faster
than those of the small breeds
(Dachshunds, Pekinese,
Spitzes, etc).
Next week, we'll look at
the emergence of the: perma-
nent teeth in dogs and cats.



Please implement disease preventative measures
(vaccinations, routine dewormings, monthly anti-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 226-4237.
