Universal Airlines

'faces legal action

UNIVERSAL Airlines, which
dumped hundreds of passen-
gers here about two months
ago, may be in for a legal
One passenger yesterday
signalled that he is taking the
company to court for the losses
he suffered as a result of the
cancellation of flights starting
August 28.
According to an advertise-
ment in the Guyana Chronicle
and Stabroek News yesterday,
Deodat Seemangal is instituting
legal action in the High Court
here against Universal Airlines
for losses.
He said persons interested
in joining him to make it a class
action suit, could contact him on
telephone numbers 227-6891,
227-6905 and 225-5400.
The airline has come under
severe criticism for abandoning
hundreds of passengers when it
ran into aircraft problems.
The criticism has not
abated, with several persons, in
letters to this newspaper, claim-
ing that they have not yet col-
lected refunds from the com-
pany, based in New York.
Passengers were left stranded
in Guyana, while their jobs re-
mained in jeopardy in the United
States because they could not get

back in time after the airline
stopped flying on August 28.
They were forced to visit the
Georgetown office daily and it
was eventually padlocked to
keep out irate passengers.
As a result of closure of the
flights, the Guyana Government
said it was forced to utilise
$17M lodged in an escrow ac-
count to help finance airfares for
the frustrated stranded passen-
Many passengers have not
yet been compensated for the
losses they suffered as. a result
of Universal's failure. One cus-
tomer said he is still to receive

some US$3,000 he paid the air-
line in New York to bring five
family members here on holiday
next month.
He said he has not been able
to get a refund from the airline
and up to the time of his letter,
he had not been able to see any
of the airline officials after regu-
lar visits to the New York of-
fice for more than six weeks.
A letter from an overseas-
based Guyanese in Friday's edi-
tion of the Guyana Chronicle
stated that the company has not
declared bankruptcy in the U.S.
and therefore does not have any
protection afforded to busi-

nesses which have filed Chap-
ter 11 Bankruptcy.
The airline should be
brought up on charges of fraud,
the writer suggested.
However, the airline is seek-
ing to resume flights to Guyana
by mid-December and that re-
quest is still under review.
Minister of Tourism, In-
dustry and Commerce, Mr.
Manzoor Nadir, last week
said that in its application to
the government, the company
has pledged to honour all its
financial obligations, includ-
ing compensating stranded

SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 13, 20




IT APPEARS that the main opposition PNCR is bent
on pushing the governing PPP/C on the defensive in
relation to preparations for the conduct of next
year's elections.
For its part, the latter seems disposed to reacting
more than taking initiatives of its own to ensure that
the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) does its
work without unnecessary and vexatious
This situation again surfaced last week when the
PNCR's James McAllister, fully aware of the equality
of political representation on GECOM, chose to revert
to previous claims/allegations about the validity of the
electoral register for the 2001 elections.
He offered questionable statistics and process
of reasoning known to have been previously deemed
invalid. The PPP/C promptly replied by rejecting his
argument, while GECOM opted for customary silence.
It should be evident, across political

boundaries, that the PNCR is still preoccupied in
running away from its history of "rigged elections". It
was a practice it had turned into a fine art to maintain
itself in power for approximately 24 long years. It
therefore has an interest in clouding issues on the
work of GECOM to confuse the electorate.
Question is: why GECOM itself is not more
forthcoming in avoiding a recurrence of the wastage
of time and money, as happened for the
last elections, to deal with complaints from PNCR
representatives that are designed to frustrate the
Commission from giving the required attention to
preparations for next year's elections?
Further, why the governing party feels that
it always has to react to demands/protests from the
PNCR on elections matters that should properly engage
the representatives of the ruling and opposition
parties that are equally represented?
The chairman of the seven-member
Commission, chosen for his independence and
competence, also has the right to a vote that is
expected to be exercised in favour of pushing ahead
with arrangements that are both correct and lawful. To
genuflect to partisan pressures would be a
disservice to the electorate and nation as a whole.
Independent political observers would be aware
that with the restoration of electoral democracy since
October 1992, which brought an end to 28 years of rule
by the PNC, Guyana has been able to proudly defend
the legitimacy of all national elections, as conducted
by a supposedly bipartisan Elections Commission.
When the PNCR instigated costly political
disturbances to destabilise the Janet Jagan-led
administration because of that party's refusal to accept
the verdict of the 1997 elections, a reputable audit,
conducted as part of CARICOM's post-elections
intervention, had endorsed the legitimacy of the results,
as clearly in favour of a return to government by the

Nothing has happened since to give ANY
credence to the complaints of expediency that keep
flowing from the PNCR. Rather, it has been the
combination of a generous spirit by GECOM and
commendable tolerance by the government that have
resulted in a series of responses to the PNCR.
Question of relevance is: For how much longer,
and at what cost to the independence and efficiency
of GECOM and, ultimately the rights of voters for the
2006 elections, will this scenario persist while the
PNCR plays its games at the expense of GECOM and
the electorate?
There is also the related question of how the
opposition representatives on the Commission view
their responsibilities, in relation to the misinformation
and raw, divisive politicking coming from those
behaving as if it is the government and not GECOM
which is responsible for conducting elections.
That control and/or manipulation of an Elections
Commission used to be the case under the
dispensation of PNC rule. NOT so today, and must
NEVER again happen.

NOT one, but two of the
major opposition
parliamentary parties of the
Caribbean Community are
currently tearing themselves
apart over "leadership".
In the process, these
parties, Democratic Labour
Party (DLP) of Barbados and
the United National Congress
(UNC) of Trinidad and Tobago,
are endangering their chances of
gaining state power.
As to be expected, Prime
Minister Owen Arthur's
Barbados Labour Party (BLP)
and Prime Minister Patrick
Manning's People's National
Movement (PNM) are quite
happy to witness the
leadership cabal of their
respective opponents with
plenty of time on hand before
new general elections.
In recalling some of the
bitter infightings of the Jamaica
Labour Party (JLP) in the latter
years of Edward 'Seaga's
leadership, JLPites would
know something of the agony
being experienced by the rank
and file of the UNC and DLP
In contrast, however, to
the flexibility the wily
Seaga had finally managed to
demonstrate in the face of
inevitable leadership
replacement, the UNC's
Basdeo Panday continues to
maintain a stubbornness that
could climax in his humiliation
and at tremendous cost to the
party he founded in the 1980s
and led to power in 1995.
Compared to the
controversies that had emerged
in the JLP-undoubtedly
aggravated by some four
consecutive electoral defeats -
the governing People's National
Party (PNP) perhaps stands as
a model in multi-party
democracies in scheduled
leadership changes.
Currently, therefore,
while the quartet of aspirants
seeking to succeed the retiring
P.J. Patterson as PNP leader

Opposition infightings in Trinidad

and Barbados

and, by extension Prime
Minister, vigorously pursue the
prized target with political
maturity and transparency, there
are no known fractures in the
party's mass base.

:T, 9'



The opposite appears to
be the case with respect to both
the UNC in Trinidad and Tobago
and the DLP in Barbados where
once very close colleagues with
a shared commitment to replace
existing governments in Port-of-
Spain and Bridgetown, are in
open conflicts.
In relation to the UNC,
the core problem is rooted in the
shifting positions of the 72-year-
old Panday on the political
retirement he had signalled to take
at 70.
As the first Trinidadian of
East Indian descent to become
Prime Minister, as leader of the
only party to win an outright
electoral victory against the
PNM, Panday has been
vacillating on making way for a
successor ever since the historic
17-17 tie between the two
dominant parties at the 2001

general election.
The current scenario is of
a crafty, charismatic Panday
whose response to criticisms over
his leadership was to request the
UNC to have elections for a new
He had earlier invited the
economist and former Central
Bank Governor,. Winston
Dookeran, to consider
succeeding him as leader while he
functions as the party's new
Both were unopposed as
leader and chairman and headed
two separate lists of candidates
for the party's elected executive
that ended with a slight majority
for Panday's team.
The UNC's rank and file
and the country at large followed
developments with expectations
of Panday also handing over the
constitutional post of
parliamentary Opposition Leader
to Dookeran.
Suddenly, Panday
disclosed a change of heart,
explaining that certain MPs .who
had supported Dookeran's slate
for the party's executive, had a
work agenda that could
undermine the party's mass base
to the advantage of the ruling


Consequently, he has
vowed not t.o give up the post of
Opposition Leader, much to the
chagrin of Dookeran and his
colleagues. among them the
flamboyant and loquacious Jack
Warner of football fame.
A move is currently on by
some of Panday's more militant
opponents to forward a signed
petition to President George
Maxwell indicating that they

have a majority of one among
the 17 opposition
MPs favouring Dookeran as
the new Opposition Leader.
For his part,
Dookeran is yet to show an
appetite for an open fight with
Panday. His seeming
reluctance, at this stage, to
have a face-off for the post of
Leader, may .
only delay the
cracks within
the UNC from
deteriorating to R3 I
a level that, at
best, could keep
t h e
party sulking in
while PNM-
s t y 1 e
governance continues.
In nearby Barbados, the
scenario, basically, is that after
three electoral defeats in a row,
two once close colleagues,
Clyde Mascoll and David
Thompson, seem to
have irreversibly drawn a
dividing line on leadership of
the party.
Like the PNM and
UNC, the BLP and
DLP remain the dominant
parties, in and out of power.
And, for all their real and
perceived weaknesses, they
continue to defy efforts by any
so-called "third force" party
to break that dominance.
The differences lie not
only in the culture of the two
societies but in the
constitutions and governance
styles of these parties. In the
case of the DLP and BLP, they
can be headed, respectively, by
a president and chairman, while

having someone else functioning
in parliament as Opposition
Leader or Prime Minister,
depending on electoral fortunes.
For national
elections, whichever party is in
power, the Prime Minister then
assumes the post also of
chairman (BLP) or president
(DLP) to lead the election battle.


After a 23-7 margin of
defeat by the BLP at the 2003
general election, the fissures of
internal discontent in the DLP
widened with an unmistakable

decided that it was perhaps
time to end the party's
leadership 'haitus'.
They came up with a
plan for an Extraordinary
Conference of the DLP later
this month (November 19) to
amend the party's
constitution in order to
proceed with arrangements
for the election of someone
who would have the
endorsement of the party's
rank and file to lead them
into a new general election.
There is little doubt
that Thompson will

I HAD lunch with Robert last
Uh, uh not that Robert,
And I am sorry, Rasta, but
the menu' was not ital and the
people at Le Meridien Pegasus
did not serve up the food in
The food included good
halaal fish, chicken and other
dishes but nothing ital.
Does that deprive I Ras
Rief Khan of my honorary
membership in the Rastafarian
community, Rasta?
Please understand that it

into the ital nabit and it will be
some time before Le Meridien
Pegasus and other fancy places
like that get around to catering
for Rastas.
You see how they having
African, Indian, Chinese,
Amerindian, Portuguese and
other 'nights' and 'days' and no
Rasta night yet?
Believe me, it will take quite
a while for them to get into the
flow of things and set up an ital
section where we can go and
have righteous food in cala-
bashes and in a right and proper
atmosphere. Patience, my
brother, patience.
All good things will
materialise in time to come.
Praise to the Most High.
Until then, the brethren and
sistren will have to forgive I and
I when I man slip and slide, right?
And I slipped from the
straight and narrow last week,
Rasta, when I accepted the
lunch invitation from Robert.
And you have to blame
Robert for me sliding from the
straight and narrow, Rasta. It
wasn't me, Rasta. It was him.
Which Robert? Not that
Robert, Rasta.
Robert who?
It was Robert Corbin,
Rasta. That's right, Rasta Mr
Robert Corbin, Leader of the
Opposition and of the People's
National Congress Reform
I gon get into serious
trouble? For what, Rasta?
For having lunch with that
Robert and not the other Rob-
ert, Rasta?
Why, Rasta? Why?
I and I was only breaking
bread with Mr Corbin, Rasta.
So, what's the problem with
Big trouble? Serious
Don't take no worries,
Rasta. Was only lunch and the
only sin I committed was not
asking Le Meridien Pegasus
people to serve me ital in a cala-
bash. But I didn't want to cre-
ate any trouble, so I duly par-
took of the bountiful halaal fish,
chicken and other offerings.
Seriously, Rasta,,I can't un-,
derstand why you so worried
that I will face fires for going to

lunch with that Robert and not
the other Robert.
Believe me, Mr Corbin did
not ask me to consider being his
running mate for the general
elections due next year, although
I did notice him watching me a
little pleadingly.
Why you shoo shooing me
Rasta? Why you telling me to
keep me mouth shut?
You don't want other
people to hear me saying that

Mr Corbin looked like he
wanted to ask me to be his run-
ning mate for the 2006 elec-
What's wrong with you,
Look at them other people
- one leader promise the other
leader (confusing? I find it more
than confusing) that if their
party win the elections, he will
be President for the first two-
and-a-half years and then hand
over to the other for the remain-

ing two-and-a-half years.
So, if Mr Corbin offer I Ras
Rief Khan a deal like that, this
Honorary Rasta don't see any-
thing wrong with that. It is
something that I may move up
to Mount Ayanganna and medi-
tate on over some bountiful ital
in many calabashes.
But believe me, Rasta, the
man didn't come up with any-
thing like that, so why you
think I could lose my job for.

breaking bread with him?
I must be careful who I
have lunch with? Okay, I see.
Look, if you don't believe
that Mr Corbin did not ask me
to lunch to be his running mate
for the elections next year, ask
Mr David de Caires, Editor-in-
Chief of the Stabroek News, or
Mr Glenn Lall or Mrs Gwen
Evelyn (from Kaieteur News),
or Mr Colin Smith from the
Catholic Standard.
They were there too, break-

ing bread quite happily with me
and Mr Corbin and Ms Supriya
Singh, Mr Winston Murray, Mr
Ronald Austin and others from
the PNCR. So it wasn't only
Mr Corbin and I and if you
want, you can ask the others if
he ever raised anything like me
being his running mate.
Rasta, I can't understand
why you so nervous and why
sweating so much about me and
this lunch with Mr Corbin busi-
What? You
want to know if
the Editors for

into trouble?
Rasta, you been smoking?
Why you eyes so red and why
you tearing out your hair so?

leaders sat down and broke

they may get to know each other

Ponder the possibilities,
Rasta. They could even develop

A tale of three trade talks

By Sir Ronald Sanders

(The writer is a business
executive and former Caribbean
diplomat who publishes widely
on Small States in the global

'FROM Argentina through
Anguilla to London and
Geneva, trade talks that will
affect the people of the
Caribbean searched for
answers to trade problems at
the start of November
creating greater uncertainty
for Caribbean economies.
The first of the these talks
was the Summit of The
Americas held in Argentina with
almost all of the Heads of
Government of Central and
South America present
alongside George W Bush, the
President of the United States,
and Paul Martin, the Prime
Minister of Canada.
No head of government of
the Organisation of Eastern
Caribbean States (OECS)
attended. It may be that they
had decided ahead of time that
the Summit had nothing on offer
for their countries. Other
CARICOM Heads did attend.

But, the Summit produced
no progress on the much
vaunted Free Trade Area of the
Americas (FTAA) which
should have been completed
this year.
Two opposing views
emerged at the meeting. One,
pushed by the U.S., Canada and
Mexico, wanted to set an April
deadline for talks; a second,
view from Brazil, Argentina,
Uruguay, Paraguay and
Venezuela urged the postponing
of movement on the FTAA
until after a World Trade
Organisation (WTO)
Ministerial meeting in Hong
Kong in December.
Given the significant
weight he is throwing around,
it is arguable that there was
third view the loudly stated
personal position of Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez who
pronounced the FTAA "dead"
at a protest rally not far from
the official meeting.
In the end, the
Communique of the meeting
declared: "The conditions do
not exist to attain a hemisphere
free trade accord that is balanced
and fair, with access to markets,
that is free of subsidies and

distorting practices". It was also
agreed that officials will resume
negotiations "during 2006".
The only useful reference for
CARICOM countries in the
Summit declaration was that the
FTAA negotiations would take.
account of the need for special
treatment for small economies.
This was a point that was
insisted upon by the CARICOM
leaders who were present at the
summit. Without it, it is difficult
to see what real benefits there
would be for CARICOM
countries in the FTAA.
In any event, President
George 'Bush had had enough of
the meeting before it came to an
end. He took off for Brazil where
he was paying a state visit, and
forced the Brazilian President
Luiz Lula da Silva to depart as
well. This occasioned an exodus
of leaders, leaving officials to
wind-up the meeting.
A few days later, all but two
OECS leaders did gather in
Anguilla. The Prime Ministers of
St Vincent & The Grenadines and
Grenada were absent.
According to a report by the
Caribbean Media Corporation
(CMC), St Kitts-Nevis Prime
Minister Denzil Douglas gave the

clearest indication yet that the
member states of the OECS
might not be part of the
Caribbean Single Market and
Economy (CSME) scheduled
to be operational by the end of
this year.
Dr Douglas is reported to
have said the establishment of
a Regional Development Fund

1 . .. T


from which the OECS can
draw "is a condition of our full
participation in the Caribbean
Single Market".
The failure to create this
Fund had long been seen by
Caribbean commentators as a
stumbling block to the creation
of the CSME with full
participation of all
CARICOM states particularly
the OECS. It is an issue that
should have been recognized
and addressed by CARICOM
leaders from the beginning.
Why OECS governments
left it so late in the day to raise
this as an obstacle, and why the
larger CARICOM countries
and the CARICOM
Secretariat did not themselves
insist on machinery being put

in place to address the problem
is a distinct puzzle.
Whatever the reason, the
problem is now confronting
CARICOM and it will not go
away. It needs to be managed
swiftly, and in ways that will
reassure the OECS governments.
At the end of their Anguilla
meeting, the OECS Heads did
not indicate in their official
Communique what they
proposed to do about the
CSME, but it is obviously a
lingering issue, particularly as
they seemed to have accepted
the proposition of forming an
OECS Economic Union on the
basis of a new binding treaty.
Amongst the characteristics
of the Economic Union would
be the "upgrading (of) the
current OECS Secretariat into
the "Eastern Caribbean
Commission", and provided
with Commissioners with the
responsibility to prepare
legislation for the authority to
approve, as well as to
strengthen the linkages between
the proposed Commission and
Member States".
The idea of a Commission
was proposed to CARICOM
Heads of government by the
West India Commission in 1992
but it was not implemented. It
was proposed again in
connection with the governance
of the CSME, but again no
action has been taken. Clearly
the OECS countries recognize
the value of the Commission
structure in the governance of
their economic union. In this
regard, the OECS is moving
ahead of CARICOM.
If such an Economic Union
is created and the OECS
members then join the CSME as

a single entity, this may ver3
well prove to be a goo
development for CARICOM as
a whole. It has to be hoped in
the interest of the region as a
whole that this is the intention.
The OECS meeting, like
the Summit of the Americas,
considered the WTO ministerial
meeting to be held in Hong Kong
in December. In the
Communique the OECS Heads
emphasisedd the need for a
strong and focused OECS team
to represent the sub-region's
There will be need for a
strong, technical team and
political team not only at the
OECS level, but at the level of
CARICOM as a whole. For,

Pascal Lamy, has already said
that he does not believe that

DAY CHRONICLE November 13, 2005




T no time in our post-
orld War II history has
ere been so many 'divides'
political, economic, social
d technological. The
world is affected by too many
ep and entrenched gaps,
which seem to be widening
aily. Discontent and unrest
ems to be on the rise as a
consequence of this
tuation. Two recent
amples have been the
rotest on the fringes of the
ummit of the Americas in
rgentina and the week-
ng riots in Paris, France.
Global poverty is
creasing at phenomenal rates,
bor countries are daily
,coming more disadvantaged
global economic imperatives
d certain vulnerable groups
e feeling more hopeless than
ver. The recent spurt in
natural disasters has only
acerbated these divisions.
There is yet another
videe the Digital divide: And
"s is taking a serious toll on
s victims, countries and their
populations. The digital divide
the gap between those who
ave access to Information
communication Technology
CT) and those who do not.
"s digital divide exists among
countries as it is within
Shortly (November
6-18), the United Nations
orld Summit on Information
society (WSIS) will deliberate
n this divide and contemplate
plan of action to address this
d many other issues relating
the development of ICT. A
report (The Guide to Digital
opportunities) released by the
n t e r n a t i on a 1
telecommunications Union
head of the summit paints a
ery grim picture of this type
f divide. "We live in times of
weeping change, wide in scope
d dizzying in speed. Beyond
he geopolitics of our era, the
najor force behind this
wholesale transformation is the

new technological tsunami that
envelopes our planet, epitomised
by the digital revolution... At a
time when the new offers
previously unimaginable
opportunities, it also comes with
the potential to seriously
exacerbate existing sizeable and

divide is kept at the narrowest.
These policy interventions have
included opening up of the
sector to allow Internet Service
Providers (ISP). There are
about a half-dozen ISPs serving
the coastal areas, which are
however, severely restricted by
inadequate line availability from
the telephone monopoly and
expensive bandwidth. In
developed countries a TI
(1.54Mb) of bandwidth cost
between US$250 and US$900,
in Guyana it cost almost
US$22,000. The local telephone
company does not have any
real redundancy in the event of
a breakage of the Americas II
The advent of
Wireless service has alleviated
this problem which frustrated
growth earlier on. Wireless ISPs
(WISP) have been building a
nation wide network which

of the benefits which can flow
from ICT as we see happening
in many burgeoning economies.
Another intervention
and one which is part of the
aggressive foreign investment
push has been to establish
infrastructure for international
call centres. The government has
built the basic physical
infrastructure for these in
Berbice and Linden. Hundreds
of persons are given new skills
and employment in what could
be a new economic growth area
for the country. Call or Contact
centres can provide thousands
of jobs for Guyanese because
we have many advantages over
the established leaders in out-
sourcing. We are in the same
time zone as the United States,
we speak English and we are
only five hours away.
Additionally, the
government has been pushing to
install computers and even

Internet access in secondary
schools across the country. The
Ministry of Education has also
created a network using
computers to better deliver its
services and even curriculum.
Non-governmental groups
support in this particular area is
noteworthy and has served as a
fillip to this national effort.
These measures are
paying off. The same ITU report
ahead of the world summit has
found Guyana's digital divide
global rating to be in the
intermediate-low category. The
report shows that Guyana's
ranking has improved by over
400% during the past decade,
meaning that there is increasingly
greater access and use of ICT in
the country or what is referred
to as the info-density.
The stated
commitment of the government
to the demonopolisation of the
telephone sector once achieved

can clear the way for Guyana's
take-off in ICT. We are already
witnessing the impact of
competition in the cellular
telephone service and cannot
truly imagine the possible
impact competition in other
areas can have on our economy
and the living standards of the
people of Guyana.
As the world looks at
bridging the digital divide in the
future, Guyana's push in this
regard is well on the way. Once
the necessary pre-requisites are
in place, the various divides
which exist in our country can
then be bridged better and faster.
At the end of the
day, ICT is an important
component of the country's
modernisation drive which
was alluded to by the
President of Guyana in his
39th Independence
anniversary address to the

unwanted imbalances to the point
that, if not properly addressed,
they may look desirable down the
roads. In a nutshell, this is the
story of the Digital Divide." This
is the second phase of the
summit, the first was held in
Geneva in 2003.
The report reinforces
the reality that "as the gaps
between the ICT 'haves' and
'have-nots,' the Digital Divide
represents the newest addition to
the enormous chasms in the stage
of development and the standard
of living among economies."
In Guyana,
information technology only
became widely available and
accessible about a decade ago. The
Government has since been
moving, within the constraints of
its resources, to introduce new,
relevant policy measures to
encourage the growth of the ICT
and to ensure that the digital

covers 90% of Guyana.
This was done using both
satellite and terrestrial
towers. This was only
possible since local
telephone company's
monopoly does not cover
An important
step by the government has
been to zero-rate import
duty on all computers and
accessories. This measure
has made personal
computers more affordable
to individuals. Also, it has
encouraged the private
sector to use this
technology to the benefit of
profits and efficiency.
The government
had made a major push to
get a US$25M loan from the
Development Bank (IDB)
to finance a massive ICT
programme to connect all
schools and public services
across the country. This
project was intended to
leap-frog Guyana into the
digital age for the
advancement of education
and economic opportunities.
Sadly, this project was
derailed through lobbying
efforts by the local
telephone monopoly. The
expectation is that some
time soon in the future this
project can be revisited if

Hans Barrow gts prized awardfr

By Stacey Bess

FOR a humble Caribbean
man to be decorated with
national awards by the
governments of his
developing homeland Guyana
and Asian world power Japan,
in a single lifetime, is
testimony of his distinction.
Back in 1983, his
outstanding contribution to the
development of commerce,
particularly in the insurance
industry, and the promotion of
economic development in
Guyana stood out to President
Linden Forbes Sampson
Burnham who conferred the
Guyana Medal of Service on
Mr. Hansel William Barrow.
Now, His Majesty The
Emperor of Japan, Akihito has
bestowed on Mr. Barrow one of
Japan's most prized awards -
the Order of the Rising Sun,
Gold Ra's with Neck Ribbon.
The Orders of the Rising Sun;
established in 1875, was Japan's
first award. It features rays of
light radiating from the rising

Barrow has received
the Japanese award in
recognition of his contribution
to the strengthening of the
friendly relationship between
Japan and the Republic of
Guyana and helping to promote
the knowledge of Japan among
Guyanese. He received his
congratulatory message from
Japan on November 3, last.
Hans Barrow, as he is
popularly called, is the
Honorary Consul-General of
Japan in Guyana and Chairman
and Managing Director of
Insurance Brokers Guyana
When the Sunday
Chronicle visited Mr. Barrow at
his Carmichael Street,
Georgetown insurance office
last week, undoubtedly, he was
elated to share the news about
his achievement, yet his delight
was tempered with hu niu ly.
Barrow was Honorary
Consul of Japan in Guyana
from 1980 to 1997. In 1997, he
was promoted to, and
continues to serve as Honorary
Consul-General of Japan in

Inevitably, his
compassion for humanity and
lucidness in business assisted him
in negotiating Japanese support,.

account of excellent relations with
Barrow said that Japan is
now preparing to send a study
team to Guyana to do the
groundwork for a project to
alleviate water woes in
Corentyne, Berbice.
Many other countries are
in the race for Japan's help with
various ventures and Guyana has
been keeping very good pace in
the eyes of the Japanese.
Japan subscribes to what
the Government of Guyana sees
*as "essential and necessary,"
Barrow said, adding that as we
make requests Japan's
considerations for granting

assistance are within the
country's mode of helping
developing countries.
According to Barrow,
much of his liaison work
between Guyanese and
Japanese civil society has been
in the realm of commerce,
especially with car importation
from Japan to Guyana.
He confesses that
much more is to be done in
educating ordinary Guyanese
about the cultural and social
services offered by Japan. The
media in Guyana, he believes,
can play a vital role in this
process. He also suggests that
a parliamentary team take up
responsibility to have locals,.
principally those in the arts,
showcase aspects of Guyanese
culture in Japan.

UNDAY CHRONICLE November 13, 2005

WITH prevention at the core
of its fight against HIV/AIDS,
the United Nations
Population Fund (UNFPA) on
Wednesday last teamed up
with the Guyana Responsible
Parenthood Association
(GRPA) and St Francis
Community Developers to
launch a female condom pilot
project at the latter's
headquarters, Rose Hall
Town, Corentyne, Berbice.
The female condom is
expected to provide women with
the option of having greater
control in negotiating condom
use. But the device is relatively
unknown, generally unavailable
and expensive and men are
uncomfortable with it because of
their culture, traditions, values
and norms. Last week, the
Sunday Chronicle reported on
the high cost of the female
'condom at some pharmacies and
its unavailability at others which
ire willing to sell at a cheaper
With the launch of the
pilot project in the Ancient
County, against the drastic
increase in prices that has
promoted fears of a major
setback in the prevention
campaign, the female condoms
will be more readily available and
reasonably priced there.
"Prevention is the
centerpiece of UNFPA's fight
against HIV/AIDS including
emphasis on abstinence outside
marriage, and faithful within,"
UNFPA Country Director, Ms.
Patrice LeFleur said at the
UNFPA is an agency
which provides population
assistance to enhance the quality
of life of every man, woman and
child, through programmes
geared to help individuals plan
their families, avoid undesired

pregnancies, undergo pregnancy
and child birth safety, avoid
sexually transmitted infections
and combat discrimination and
violence against women.
The international
organisation is guided by the
Programme of Action (POA),
adopted by 179 Governments
at the International Conference
in Population and Development
held in Cairo, Egypt in 1994,
from which the main goal
included the reduction of HIV
infection by 25 per cent by
According to the
UNFPA officer, disease
prevention also relies on safe
sexual behaviour and'making
sure that condoms are readily
available, widely and correctly
used, thus empowering women
to protect themselves and their
children, while encouraging men
to be responsible family and
community members. Many
couples and individuals, she
said, currently lack choices on
effective and safe means of
planning their families, while
others lack information on the
prevention of sexually
transmitted diseases.
LeFleur reminded the
audience that investment in
reproductive health saves and
improves lives, slows the
spread of HIV/AIDS and
encourages gender equality,
which, in turn, helps stabilise
population growth, allows for
greater investment in education
and in human resources, while
reducing poverty.
St Francis Community

project was launched, is the
parent body and coordinating
office of 20 NGOs in Regions
Five (Mahaica/Berbice) and Six

to children's homes and families
in crisis, advocacy and support
for the poor and needy, group

groups, skills training
programmes, women and
children empowerment, micro
credit and small business
enterprise schemes, among
Some of the awards
achieved by the organisation and

The female condom prevent., semen ispermn from entering the women's body and
also protects the male partners from being in contact with the vaginal fluid'.
The protective sexual device, which is made from polyurethane. is cylindrical and has
ho flexible rings at either end. One of the rims is used to insert the devices into the iagina
and keep it in place diaphragmm. while the other rim stays outside the vagina.
It is for vaginal insert only and must be imbedded prior to sexual Intercourse, after
which it must be removed and thrown away.
The female condoms offers 87 per cent protection base in actual use for six months
and is readily available from Family Planning clinics or centres offering sexual and
reproductive sern ices.
Compared with other contraceptives, the preventative aid for the fairer sex. also have
advantages and disadvantages.
The benefits of its usage are:
It does not constrict the penis as the male condom.
It is sensitive for the males, which may be better.
Does not reduce pleasure for women.
The polyurelhane allows for the transfer of body heat which improves sensation.
It offers greater protection against genital ulcers diseases, herpes. chancroidi.
It is female conlroUed.

The disadvantages, however, fewer, are that the condoms are expensive, it is felt to be

Foot care program

AS PART of the Ministry
of Health's intensified

diabetes in Guyana, a foot care

of diabetic patients are to be

Health Minister Dr. Leslie

Ramsammy made the announce-
ment yesterday at a press con-
ference to mark World Diabetes
Day being observed tomorrow
under the theme 'Put Feet First:
Prevent Amputations'.
Last year, the Minister said,
there were 56 cases of amputa-
tions due to diabetic conditions.
But he contended that these
could have been avoided with
early diagnosis and proper man-
agement of the disease.
Diabetes, hypertension and

obesity, which are inter-related,
were always a major healthprob-
lem, but have now reached epi-
demic proportions in Guyana.
But Ramsammy has given the
assurance that his Ministry is

in diabetic patients, Ramsammy
said, adding that it will become
.routine for the feet of persons
suffering from the disease to be
examined at all public health fa-
According to Ramsammy,
the obesity issue will be tackled
not from just a physical or aes-
thetic standpoint, but rather as a
disease which affects both adults
and children.
"...it is most likely that over-
weight children become over-
weight adults," he stressed, add-
ing that there has been a reversal
of the situation as formerly chil-
dren were mostly.underweight.
Providing statistics to illus-
trate the seriousness of the dia-
betic problem in Guyana, Dr
Ramsammy said that in 2004,
there were 9,232 new cases and
the respective figures for 2003,
2002 and 2001 were 8, 920, 7,
371 and 8,210. However, he
emphasised that the figures are
an under representation of the
actual situation because they are
based on information from only
public hospitals. In this regard,
the minister underscored the
need for greater cooperation be-
tween the public and private
medical institutions in the gar-
nering of relevant medical infor-
On diabetic-related mortal-
ity rate, he said figures for 2004
are not available but he provided
statistics for 2003, 2002 and
2001 which were 363, 389 and
341 respectively. In 2003. mor-
tality rate in the age group 15-44
was seven per I00,000 persons;
144 per 100.000 persons in the
45-64 age group; and 438 per

100,000 persons in the age 65
and over group.
Identifying the major fac-
tors that could contribute to
the acquiring of diabetes, Dr.
Ramsammy listed eating hab-
its and nutrition, physical in-
activity, obesity, tobacco use
and excessive use of alcohol.
He noted too that everyone is
at risk but those persons with
a family history of the dis-
ease are more susceptible and
at a greater risk of becoming
According to the minister,
while diabetes is incurable, it
could be managed effectively and
allow affected persons to live a
normal life. He said that the lo-
cal health care system has the
tools to effectively manage the
disease and they are accessible
throughout Guyana.
"It is not the high sugar lev-
els that cause the various ill-
nesses, but the complications
which it causes as every organ in
the body is affected," Dr.
Ramsammy asserted.
Unfortunately, Dr.
Ramsammy noted that one of
the difficulties being faced by
health authorities is that many
patients do not comply with
instructions, thereby increas-
ing their complications, mak-
ing it more difficult to man-
age their conditions.
He said beginning tomor-
row there will be a series of
activities aimed at educating
the public about diabetes and
creating a greater awareness
among members of the public
of the complications associ-
ated with the disease and its

Head of the Disease Control
Department of the Ministry of

the Head of the Diabetes, Obe-
sity and Hypertension Depart-
ment, Dr. Gumati Kristendatt
also shared the press conference.
Diabetes is a disease in which
blood glucose levels are above
normal. Most of the food we eat
is turned into glucose, or sugar,
for our bodies to use for energy.
The pancreas, an organ that lies
near the stomach, makes a hor-
mone called insulin to help glu-
cose get into the cells of our bod-
ies. When you have diabetes,
your body either doesn't make
enough insulin or can't use its
own insulin as well as it should.
This causes sugar to build up in
your blood.
Diabetes can cause serious
health complications including
heart disease, blindness, kidney
failure, and lower-extremity am-
putations. Diabetes is the sixth
leading cause of death in many
Symptoms associated with
diabetes are frequent urination,
excessive thirst, unexplained
weight loss., extreme hunger, feel-
ing very tired much of the time,
tingling or numbness in hands or
feet sudden vision changes, sores
that are slow to heal, more infec-
tions than usual, and very dry
skin. Nausea, vomiting, or stom-
ach pains may accompany some
of these symptoms in the abrupt
onset of insulin-dependent dia-
betes, now called Type I diabe-
Type 1 diabetes, which was
previously called insulin-de-
pendent diabetes mellitus
(IDDM) or juvenile-onset dia-
betes, may account for 5-10 per
cent of all diagnosed cases of
diabetes. Type 2 diabetes,
which was previously called
non-insulin-dependent diabe-
tes mellitus (NIDDM) or
adult-onset diabetes, may ac-
count for about 90-95 per cent
of all diagnosed cases of dia-
betes. Gestational diabetes is
a type of diabetes that only
pregnant women get. If not
treated, it can cause problems
for mothers and. babies. Ges-
tational diabetes develops in
2-5 per cent of all pregnancies
but usually disappears when
a pregnancy is over. Other
specific types of diabetes re-
sulting from specific genetic
syndromes, surgery, drugs,
malnutrition, infections, and
other illnesses may account
for one to two per cent of all
diagnosed cases of diabetes.

Muslim organizations raise

concerns with President

MUSLIM advocates
say it is imperative
for children of each
faith to recite their own
prayers in schools, rather
than to say a single univer-
sal prayer which has been
generally accepted in
The advocates also told
President Bharrat Jagdeo yester-
day at the post-Eid luncheon he
hosted for the Muslim Commu-
nity at State House that they
want religious teachings to be
added to the school curriculum.
Representatives from 15 Is-
lamic organizations along with
approximately 450 Muslims
from Jamaats throughout the
country attended the luncheon,
which also included Qaseeda
The representatives raised
several issues with the Head-of-
State, who told. them that his
Government is committed to
ensuring equality for people of
all religious persuasions.
Among other things, the
Muslims called for the estab-
lishment of a franchise body
comprising representatives from
various Islamic groupings to en-
sure that people do not abuse
the word "halaal". They
stressed that persons, especially
restaurant owners, often claim
that their chicken is halaal when
it is not. The organizations feel
that with a monitoring body,
certain conditions would have to
be met before people can put up
a halaal sign.
The Muslims also asked
that Government assist them in
acquiring lands for burial places
as there are few which are dis-
tantly located. The President

has asked Minister of Housing
and Water, Mr. Shaik Baksh to
look into that situation.
The organizations which in-
cluded the Central Islamic
Organisation of Guyana
(CIOG), Muslim Youth League
(MYL) and the Guyana Islamic
Thrust (GIT) said they would
like to see more interactions of
the sort with the Government.
President Jagdeo welcomed
the gesture and urged that the
groups foster more cooperation
amongst themselves as well.
Among those at the func-
tion were Prime Minister,
Sam Hinds and Mrs. Yvonne

Hearse kills mango vendor

By Clifford Stanley
A 40-YEAR-OLD West
Berbice mango vendor was
struck down and killed while
pushing a donkey cart laden
with the fruit along the West
Berbice highway early Friday
evening last.
Nezamadeen Ateem of
Number 5 Village, West Coast
Berbice, died after being hit
from behind by a hearse belong-
ing to Merriman's Funeral

The accident occurred
at Number 12 Village, nine miles
west of Rosignol, just around
Rawle Moore, a 12-year-
old, who was assisting Ateem in
vending mangoes, received inju-
ries during the collision and was
admitted to the Georgetown
Hospital where he was last night
said to be in a stable condition.
Reports indicated that
Ateem and Moore were at the
time walking east along the
northern side of the highway.

Ateem was on the outside
pushing the cart while Moore
was on the inside leading a don-
key which had been detached
from the cart due to a punctured
Eyewitnesses said that
Ateem's right foot was severed
from his body by the severity
of the impact.
He was pronounced dead on
arrival at the Fort Wellington
Moore was flung some dis-
tance away but regained con-

sciousness shortly after. A rela-
tive said that the 12-year
old had escaped with minor in-
juries but was being kept at the
hospital for observation for a
few days.
The donkey the youth had
been leading by a rope, died on
the spot.
The driver of the hearse es-
caped with minor injuries and the
dead person being transported from
Georgetown to New Amsterdam
was subsequently picked up by
another hearse from Merriman's

Funeral Home in New Amsterdam
and taken there later the same
Relatives said that Ateem, a
father of three, had lived in
Canada and Trinidad and To-
bago for several years, before

He had borrowed the cart
and a donkey from a friend ear-
lier in the day to use to sell man-

lia when, on his way to a dinner
party thrown by Bartholomew,
Daniel Dell, one of his class-
mates, stumbled upon a Philo-
dendron selloum, a common or-
namental plant known the world
over, in full bloom.
As Seymour observed, this
Philodendron "has a remarkably

science. We'd discovered the first
temperature-regulating flower."

How they do it
What Seymour and young
colleagues like himself discovered
during the course of their prelimi-
nary investigations was that like

IWhat makes those 'hot


By Linda Rutherford

TO US here in Guyana, particularly

the layman, she can do no wrong

as she is a national icon.

But to scientists like Dr
Roger Seymour, she is a little
'tart' named Victoria who causes
them sleepless nights trying to
find out just what it is that
makes her and others like herself
tick, and why.
In the language of the scien-
tist, they are what are called 'hot
plants' because of their uncanny
ability to either produce heat
(called thermogenesis), regulate
their temperature (thermoregu-
late), or do both, or, to para-
phrase Seymour who led a
team of scientists and other of-
ficials drawn mainly from the
Adelaide Botanic Gardens in
southern Australia on a two-
week walkabout here mid last
month they have the cheek to
mimic a warm-blooded bird or
According to him, heat pro-
duction in flowers has been
known since the early 1800s
when it was first discerned in the
arum lily by noted French natu-
ralist Jean-Baptiste de Lamarck.
It was later detected in Victoria
around 1855, whereby a tem-
perature reading taken of the in-
side of a first-day flower was
about 10 degrees warmer than
the surrounding air. Some years
later, in 1899 to be precise, an-
other leading scientist produced
some graphs which 'showed that
the temperature inside Victoria
can rise to as much as 35 degrees
on the first day of bloom, when
the atmospheric temperature is
just around 25 degrees.
The usual textbook explana-
tion for this phenomenon,
Seymour said during the course
of a lecture on the topic at the
Hotel Tower, is that it helps
volatilise the scent in flowers as
a means of attracting potential
pollinators, which makes perfect
sense and is why most botanists
have tended to accept this line
of argument over the years.
Subsequent studies have
since shown that this heating up
in so-called 'hot plants' only oc-
curs at night, which not only
help substantiate the
volatilisation theory, but also ac-
counts for why their floral scent
is at its sharpest at that time of
However, after devoting
years of study to the physiol-
ogy of the 'hot plant', Seymour
is convinced that the
volatilisation theory does not
hold much water after alL since
you don't need a thermostat to
do that. Besides, he contends,
-heating and temperature regula-
tion just occur over one day. If
you're only using heal produc-
tion for scent production, you

only need to heat during the at-
tractive period...those first
hours when the insects come into
the flowers. So that can't be it."
This then leaves us just two op-
tions, namely attraction and re-

Nightclub factor
Insects, he said. are attracted
to flowers basically by tl\o
things, one of which is their ap-
pearance, such as theLr colour
and design. The other is scent.
But those are the attractions, he
contends, and not the re\a.ird.
"Bees do not get a reward
by looking at a flower" beetles
don't get a reward by the odour.
We [humans] appreciate flo(. ers
by their appearance and smell.
but the animals that do the pol-
linating couldn't care less."
This being the case, he said.
then the only logical conclusion
is that the reward has to be en-
"Food! That's hat thec
are coming for! The 're at-
tracted by something
else...but they are re- Pal
warded ...sa- by nectar..

their own volition.
"When a beetle goes into a
flower...in the evening, around
6:30 pm, when it opens up like
a nightclub does... there are only
two things on its mind_..one is
eating. And they eat and mate
avidly all night. By the morning
they are pretty tired, so they rest
all day. As they emerge groggily
when the flower opens up again,
the pollen is shed on them... and
then they fly away..-in search of
another nightclub."
To test his heat incentive
theorN. he and his French col-
league. Marc Gibernau of the
Paul Sabatner University in
Toulouse, ran a few tests on the
Cyclocephala colasi beetle, the
main pollinalor of the Phioden-
dron solimoeseose natie to
French Guiana. and what they
found was that anything below
32 degrees Celsius causes them

expensive ih the long-run for the
insect since e it causes Lts meta-
bolic rate to rise to as much as

was, so that's where I went."
It was his supervisor, George
Bartholomew, one of two remark-
able scientists he had the privilege
of understudying (the other being
Gerald Daniels), however, who
would encourage him "to go out
into the field and act like a
naturalist....a natural historian."
Noting that if one were to
say today that they were a natu-
ral historian, they would be re-

Explaining what he meant by
this, Seymour. said that like a
nightclub, the floral chamber of
these plants, which is where all
the action takes place, is
equipped with every conceivable
convenience to make its guests
comfortable, from sweet drinks
(nectar)... to food (the sterile
male florets)...to energy-saving
heat to keep them active. Allow-
ing his imagination to take flight
so as to enliven his presentation,
he said there is even a dance
: floor, in the case of the Lotus
(Nelumbo nucifera) or Water
Lily as it known here in Guyana,
and a few 'bouncers' on the
sidelines to discourage the in-
sects from accessing the pollen
in the male florets before they
are ready to release them of

vantage; it saves them from shiv-
ering, and helps them save en-
ergy, so, that's a reward."

Interest in flowers
A graduate of the University
of California, Seymour, who is
American but now lives and
works in Australia, said he first
became interested in Biology as
an 'undergrad', but had to decide
between zoology and botany
when he went on to do post-
graduate studies, which was a
difficult thing to do at the time.
"I had a big choice to make:
Would I be a zoologist or a bota-
nist? Now in 1972, guys that
became botanists were a bit
suspect...because botany was a
thing that girls did. Zoology, on
uiae other hand, the study of ani-

garded as being 100 years out of
date, Seymour said "there's a lot
to learn by observing nature
rather than designing experi-
ments and analysing them with
proper statistical analysis and so
While he does concede that
those activities at reference are
all part of what the study of sci-
ence is all about, he said that like
Bartholomew and Darwin, he,
too, believes that one can learn
much more by going out into the
fields and observing nature. "Na-
ture has more of a story to tell
you...and more fabulous stories
to tell you than you could pos-
sibly imagine."
His interest in 'hot plants'
in particular would peak on the
eve of his departure for Austra-


the pecimen [iji.", %ere look-
i n j .Jas ...arniei than the

and inainmmals.
The onl% reason the%
were able to deduce this so
readily was because the labo-
ratory in which they worked,
which was Bartholomew's,
specialised in temperature regu-
lation in birds and mammals.
"For a group of zoologists,"
Seymour said, "this was too
much to take. Here was a plant
that had the audacity to become
warmer than the pinnacle of or-
ganic evolution on earth ...a
warm-blooded bird or mammal,
and so I had to study it."
Luckily for him, he said, his
mother had some Philodendrons
in her backyard which were also
blooming at the time, and so by
the next morning he had some
heat measuring instruments in-
side the flowers measuring their
temperature "And that led to
our fkI, paper which occurred in

ture of which is Victoria
amazonica, the Philodendron,
too, goes through a two-phase
sequence, whereby on the first
night of bloom, the spathe
(petal) opens up, revealing its
creamy-white interior and a phal-
lus-like structure, called a spadix,
at the centre. It is at this stage
of the game that the female parts
of the flower, called the ovules
and located at the bottom of the
floral chamber, are at their most
receptive to pollination by
whichever pollen-bearing insect
it happens to attract.
Where the two species dif-
fered, however, is that whereas

Victoria stays open throughout,
the Piulodendron. has ing enticed
its maung partner, usually the
scarab beetle, wraps its spathe
around the spadix (which is ac-
tually a cluster of minute florets)
and doesn't open again until the
following evening, by which
time it is in the male phase and
ready to release its pollen.
Through a series of night
and day readings, the team was
able to see a pattern emerging,
whereby there was a marked in-
crease in temperature on the
first night, to as much as over
40 degrees Celsius at one point,
followed by periods of troughs
and peaks until the following
night when it finally stabilised.
Intrigued by this develop-
ment, they put cuttings of the
flower into a constant tem-
perature cabinet and were fur-
ther astounded by what they
saw happening. When the
temperature inside the cabinet
read four degrees Celsius,

Dell was tempted to break it off
and take it to the party to use
"as a conversation piece... as an
example of the convergence in
evolution between the repro-
ductive structure of a plant and
[that of] a human being."
As the group marvelled at
the structure, they found that it
was warm to the touch, though
it was just around 19:00 hrs.
What was even more remarkable
was that as the evening wore
on, the hotter it became until
around 21:00 hrs to 22:00 hrs
when they were convinced that

Philodendron, the flower upped
its temperature to around 39
degrees. Conversely, when the
temperature inside the cabinet
was regulated to 39 degrees,
the flowers just heated up by
five degrees.
"This pattern of more or less
constant temperature in the

plantss tick?

Philodendron," he said, "was
very similar to what we see in
birds and mammals. In other
words, what the flower was do-
ing in order to stay warm at cold
air temperatures, was doing the
equivalent of shivering; producing
heat by metabolic activity. At
warmer ambient temperatures, it
turns down its heater, which pat-
tern was almost exactly the same
as what we see in birds and
mammals... the so-called endot-
herms or warm blooded animals."
Warm-bloodedness in birds
and mammals, he explained, is a
metabolic strategy that allows
them to become active for very
long periods of time, at which they
are very successful. Ectotherms,
or cold-blooded organisms, on the
other hand, can't be active all the
time, and need to hibernate from
time to time. "If you're an ecto-
therm in a cold country," he said,
"you'll have to go underground
and become torpid, and can't feed
and so on. But it's a successful
strategy, nevertheless."
Looking inside the Philoden-
dron, they discovered that what
was producing the heat was not
the fertile male florets at the top,
nor the females at the bottom,
but the sterile ones in the
middle, referred to as heaters in
science because of their phenom-
enal capacity to produce heat.
Such is the philodendron's
capacity to produce heat, he said,
that one flower alone is capable
of producing the same amount of
heat as a cat weighing three
kilogrammes (which is approxi-
mately seven pounds).

The mechanism
The one thing that still has
Seymour beaten after all these years,
however, is what causes these 'hot
plants' to thermoregulate.
Is it that the flowers are just
taking advantage of the plant's
ability to rid itself of excess heat
by way of an alternative oxidase
(AOX) pathway?
Or, do they, like young babies
and animals that hibernate, hap-
pen to have the same uncoupling
protein (UCP) present in brown
fat cells which cause energy to
dissipate in the form of heat?
Interestingly enough, both
these enzymes, AOX and UCP,
disparate though they are in origin,
have been found to be involved in
the process, though what the exact
mechanism is, is still to be deter-
mined, Seymour said.
At present, he and a Japanese
colleague of his, Kikukatsu Ito of
Iwate University in Morioka, Ja-
pan, are working assiduously on
piecing together this particular
puzzle. Ito, he said, who read about
his work and became interested in
temperature regulating flowers, has
proposed that if they could find out
what the mechanism is in tempera-
ture regulation in these flowers, then
he could develop some sort of bio-
mechanical electronic device with
which to control temperature.
And that's just what they
are doing... with the aid of a

for mushrooms. She has
confirmed that persons sampling
yields that UG produces love it.
"I have made curried
mushrooms, have cooked
mushrooms with chicken, with
eggs, with fried rice and have
made mushroom pizza and
mushroom soup," Ms.
Husbands related.
So far research indicates
that paddy straw and a
combination of paddy straw and
newspapers produce' the best
yields of mushrooms. The
fruiting bodies are bigger than
those growing out of paddy hull
and coconut fibre beds.
Coconut fibre beds,
produce mushrooms quicker than
those inoculated with paddy
straw and the paddy straw-
newspaper mixture. However,
the fruiting bodies are not as
hefty as those grown on paddy
straw and paddy straw-
newspaper beds.
UG's Agriculture
Faculty is encouraging the
production of mushrooms in
Guyana by first inviting 50
persons to register to get
inoculated mushroom beds,
which the university wil!
provide at a minimal cost. This
project is an extension of
Agriculture Month observances.
UG staff will guide
participants in caring for the
mushroom beds, which they will
take home and monitor until the
fruiting bodies bloom. The
primary aim is to get potential
producers locked into the
process of. producing

The target group
includes young academics and
"With the advent of
CARICOM Single Market and
Economy (CSME), which will
allow for free trade of goods and
services, Guyana, especially
young people must be prepared
to make full use of all
opportunities that may bb
presented," Ms. Husbands said,
adding that "small-scale
mushroom production
represents an opportunity for,
youths interested in pursuing an
entrepreneurial enterprise and is,
a speciality, option for
individuals without much land
and through' this activity self-
employment opportunities can
be enhanced to benefit young
Mushroom culti action
would allow growers to exploit
agro-waste material thai,
according to Ms. Husbands, "are
cheap, readily available, that"
would other. wise be considered
waste," thereby paving the way
for a worthy on going livelihood.
To this end, the Faculty
of Agriculture is preparing a
mushroom training curriculum in
order to offer a course of study
in mushroom cultivation in the
summer of 2006.
In addition, research is
being done on the economics of
mushroom cultivation, extending
the shelf life of mushrooms, and
effective sterilisation techniques
for bed materials.
Persons interested in
obtaining inoculated
mushroom beds from the
Faculty of Agriculture, UG,

of Christopher Birchall whose right-foot half volley,

Put your best foot forward

The lw rn n*ain frshe

By Stacey Bess
THE trends have got you
on lock! Locking you
into some beautiful
pairs of shoes which you want
to keep sparkling for as long
as current fashion sequences
Today, the Sunday Chronicle
will clue you in on some simple
regimens for caring your shoes
in order to get every last stylish
step out of them.
Heels may need replacing,
soles stitching, uppers groom--
Mr. Dereck Ramcharitar,
popularly known as The City
Cobbler, who is stationed at the
Guyana Post Office Corporation
building, Georgetown is a mas-
ter with ladies' shoe heels.
Dereck works about 12 hours
each day between the Post Of-
fice and his home.
Ninety five per cent of his
clientele, he told Sunday
Chronicle in an interview last
week, are women, who sustain a
steady pace of work at the City'
Cobbler's shop, at least five days
a week.
With a minimum of 25
pairs of heels or 50
heels on his 'cowtail' daily,
Dereck's shoe stand is almost
ceaselessly a buzz with his sand-
ing machine and drill gun as he
levels heels, drills holes and re-
places heel caps or what inter-
nationally are dubbed stem sys-
When we visited last week,
two ladies occupied stools pro-
vided by Dereck. There they
were, shoes off, feet dangling as,
with patience, they waited for

the City Cobbler to give their
shoes a make-over with spank-
ing new heels.
Within 20 minutes, after
careful measuring, levelling by
sanding machine, gun drilling,
sharp knife cutting, glue plaster-
ing, and no-nonsense hammer-
whacking, he was done. The la-
dies slipped their shoes on and
confidently strode off;

He evolved into his own
boss, inheriting City Cobbler's
reins from Mr. Rhodes who now
resides in Brazil.
From a decade and a half ago
to recent times, Dereck relied
solely on local materials to
change ladies heels. But the fin-

Wearing dentures

F OR many years I have
been examining nearly
two hundred mouths a
week and it is rare that I see
an adult who has not lost at
least one tooth. Therefore, it'
is quite likely that nearly ev-
ery adult Guyanese requires
dentures. So especially for
those who will be wearing a
denture for the first time, in
order to obtain maximum
benefit from it, certain prac-
tices should be observed. One
should first remember that,
dentures are not permanent.
and that changes continue to
occur in the bone and soft tis-
sues of the mouth.

During the initial adjust-
ment period you should:

1. Leave the dentures in

comfort or pain and revisit.

Convention recognizes that
biological diversity is about
more than plants, animals and
micro organisms and their
ecosystems. It is about
people and our need for food
security, medicines, fresh air
and water, shelter, and a clean
and healthy environment.
The Convention on Bio-
logical Diversity (CBD) aims
to halt the decline in global
biological diversity, including
genetic, species and ecosys-
tem diversity. Globally, an
estimated 34,000 plant and
5,200 animal species includ-

The UNCBD was signed
by 150 Government leaders at
the Rio Earth Summit in 1992,
including Guyana. Guyana rati-

fled the Convention on 29 Au-
gust, 1994.
The Convention establishes
three main objectives:
Conservation of Bio-
logical Diversity -
Sustainable use of its
Fair and equitable shar-
ing of benefits arising out of the
use of genetic resources, includ-
ing by appropriate access to ge-
netic resources, and by appro-
priate transfer of relevant tech-
nologies, taking into account all
rights to those resources and to
technologies, and by appropri-
ate funding.
The Conference of Parties
(COP), where all parties to the
CBD meet, is the supreme
body of the Convention. The
CBD operates through thematic
programmes, of which included

evant to Guyana:

The benefits of Guyanese nostalgic culture (Part)

By Terence Roberts

WHAT IS nostalgic cul
ture? It refers to any
number of creative styles
found in our recent past -
usually a little more than a
century ago. The increasing
attraction of 'nostalgic cul-
ture' in many countries
around the world today stems
from a growing realisation
that we have less power over
what is chosen by others (in-
ventors, manufacturers, cul-
tural producers, etc.) for us
today than what we can al-
ready refer to and verify
through older photos, films,
recordings, illustrated and
non-illustrated literature,
The problems and frustra-
tions of appreciating the ben-
efits of nostalgic culture arise
when we realise that though we
may personally like and vouch
for the quality and numerous
styles of architecture, city de-
signs, movies, musical record-
ings, fashion, beverages, toys,
comic books, literature, fine
arts. social lifestyles and cus-

toms, etc, taken from the past,
we are powerless to convince a
present new generation of cre-
ators and consumers, both local
and foreign, to continue what is
beneficial to us from bygone
And yet, that is not totally
true. As a growing number of
today's architects, fashion de-
signers, jazz vocalists and in-
strumentalists, film-makers, and
industrial designers, including
auto mobile designers (witness
Chrysler's recent beautiful P-T
Cruiser) bravely turn' back the
hands of time to more thought-
ful, calm, comfortable and aes-
thetically pleasing creative and
social styles of living in the
world's history, while adding
something if their own original-
T he benefits of this grow
ing nostalgic culture, so
essential in an increasingly self-
destructive and heedless world,
has not gripped Guyanese as
yet, even though more and more
people who grew up in Guyana
from the 1950s onwards are be-
ginning to compare now to then
in various aspects. Such a com-
parison is possible by simply

checking the decades-old news-
papers in our National Ar-
chives, but we can also start by
visiting exhibitions of Guyana's
heritage in photos at the Na-
tional Trust building on
Carmichael Street.
When all the beautiful, in-
spirational and informative
colour and black and white pho-
tos of our accomplishments,
lifestyles, architecture, civic de-
sign etc. over the past 100 years
are put into one large properly
printed coffee-table book, then
Guyanese and the world will
see clearly just how eagerly in-
dustrious and ideal life in
Guyana was in the past, and
needs to continue to preserve
this heritage.
Let's look at 1957 in Brit-
ish Guiana through its daily
newspapers. In f act, that is the
only comprehensive way left for
us to see how Guyanese lived
then, how they dressed, what
pleasures they enjoyed, what
were their social problems, what
films they saw, how
Georgetown appeared, how
Guyanese behaved, etc.
W hy should we pay at
tention to such a past

today? What purpose could it
serve? Well, it makes us con-
scious of how free we remain to
uphold standards in our lives
set by our actual history, its so-
cial order, and cultural benefits.

Benjamin was born on June
1943 in Alberttown,
Georgetown, Guyana, to Claude
and Stella Benjamin. Joel was
the fifth of ten siblings nine
boys and one girl. Despite the
large size of the family, he was
able to attend Queen's College
moving from Comenius
Moravian, Queenstown.
The 1950s was a transi-
tional period for Joel moving
from primary to secondary
school and for the family mov-
ing from Alberttown to

of political awaking in Guyana
and the Caribbean.
Whatever Benjamin did was
influenced by the need to serve
his country. After gaining his
M.A. in Mental Philosophy, he
opted to do an M.Litt degree in
Political Philosophy, writing his
thesis on Edmund Burke. He
chose to specialise in Political
Philosophy instead of his first
love, Logic, mindful that there
would be no opening for him to
use it in Guyana.
Ready to serve his country,
he returned to Guyana in 1969,
but was unable to find suitable
employment. After teaching art
during the day at Queen's Col-
lege and evenings at Teachers'
Training College, and serving as
history master at Queen's Col-
lege, he went to London Uni-
versity to do a Ph. D. in Politi-
cal Philosophy.
Here, it was by a strange
twist of logic that he found his
calling. Benjamin found himself
unable to subscribe to the philo-
sophical orthodoxy of the day.
This forced him to leave the
course, opening the way for him
to lay the groundwork for what
was to become his life's work -
"he walked the streets of Lon-
don, visiting all the antiquarian

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to our English Language columns. It
is time you use much discussion. Get into your
study groups and discuss your notes. Discussion
is a very good group activity. Keep on keeping
your interest aroused. Love you. 'Bye.

The Narrative: Personal Writing
a) Our suggestions about planning and writing the per-
sonal narrative are general. You choose your route;
you are in charge of your own writing process.
b) Plan well especially when you do assignments at
c) A Good Plan:

i) Head up: "People" and "Places." Then,
- Think back to earlier years.
- Look at old photographs.
- Talk over 'old time' stories with your family.
- Talk about times gone by with a close friend.
- Look up your personal journal entries. [Do you keep

ii) With a chosen incident for your personal narrative
in mind, try to recall what happened as fully as pos-
Draw up.a list of specific details about the incident.
Such as:
- Who was involved in this particular incident?
- What actually happened, and where?
- How did you feel as it was going on?
- What did you learn from the experience?
- What might others learn from your telling about it?
d) Your effort at drafting: Take time to write freely
and simply about what happened, step by step. Let
the ideas flow. Do not worry about polishing them up
yet. Write the retelling in a straight, chronological or-
der. You may wan to experiment at some time with
humour, or with dialogue to make your narrative lively;
it is up to your plan and ability. Remember that after
all is said, you must reveal why the event was impor-
tant to you.
d) Get your study partners together with you when you
are revising and have a writing conference. Read
your draft to the group. Look at their reaction, and
then look at the items in the revising checklist below.
They both help to evaluate your work. : Ask your-
- Does my product tell my story clearly?
- Dqes it deal with my personal change or growth?
- Does it show why the incident was important to me?
- Does a sense of "me" come through?

(1) The opening or topic sentence: (b) I learned how
to take care of my puppy.

Grammar: Work on Adjectives
Let's look today at a comparison table to help us with
adjectives of comparison.
Reminder: An adjective is a word that modifies
a noun or pronoun by limiting its meaning. It may
describe a noun or pronoun by answering one of
these questions: What kind? Which one? How
many? How much?
Examples: How lovely the roses are!
That lovely rose won first prize.
This is lovely.
The gardener considered it lovely.
The roses, lovely in the sunlight, danced in the wind.
Back to comparison of adjectives:

Positive Comparative Superlative
wise wiser wisest
small smaller smallest
happy happier happiest
interesting more interesting most interesting
much, many more most
little (quantity). less least

If you look carefully you will notice that there are dif-
ferent ways of forming adjectives of comparison.

Let's look at the three sets of sentences below.
The kindness, the intelligence, and the kind of
problem solving ability of three persons are being
Your business here is to observe what happens to the
adjectives kind, intelligent, and good.

John Bourne is a kind boy.
Jackie Jones is a kinder boy than John Bourne.
Kenneth Joseph is the kindest boy in our class.

Georgiana is an intelligent girl.
Sandra is more intelligent than Georgiana.
Simone is the most intelligent girl in the street.

Halley is a good problem-solver.
Leslie is a better problem-solver than Halley.
Godfrey is the best problem-solver in the school's gar-
dening team.

In the First Set, the suffix -er tells you how kind a
person Jackie Jones is in comparison with John
Now, which suffix tells you how kind a person Ken-
neth Joseph is in comparison with the rest of your
class? The -est of course!:
The -er and -est are inflectional suffixes.
What is the -er form of the kind called?
What is the -est form of kind called?
You must work them out now.
Many other adjectives are inflected to show compari-
son. Find out some for yourself.

In the Second Set. find out how the comparative and
superlative of intelligence is formed.
Here is something to which you must pay attention
Some adjectives of two syllables and all of three or
more syllables are compared by using more and
most or less and least.
Look at these adjectives below.

Positive Comparative Superlative
beautiful more beautiful most beautiful
helpful more helpful most helpful

When more, most, less, and least tell about compari-
son, they are called by a big name, intensifiers.
An intensifier is something that makes another thing in-
(To make something intense is to make it better or

In the Third Set, the adjectives are compared in yet
another way.
Let us see how good is compared. In this case there
are different words for the comparative and the su-
Such comparison that has no pattern is called irregu-
lar comparison.

Positive Comparative Superlative
good better -best
bad worse worst

By Linda Rutherford
2000 has rolled back the
years on crochet, a dy-
ing art that has seen better
days, to lend to the allure of
its 2006 collection, Legacy,
launched here two Sundays
ago amidst cocktails and not
the customary tea to a select
As the collection unfolded,
generous bits of the intricately-
designed weave could be seen
playing peek-a-boo at neck and
hemlines, and even on the cuff
of gent's shirts, as the designer
deftly merged it with other natu-
ral fibres, matching colour for
colour, wherever she thought it
would best enhance the garment
with fascinating results.
The few pieces there were
that were entirely of crochet
evoked memories of a time when.
such items could only be af-
forded by the well-heeled, and of
the late 60s and early 70s when
crocheted vests and other forms

of 'funky' clothing, wild hair-
styles and lots of beads and
baubles were the in thing to the
'hippie' generation of that pe-
There were also a few inno-
vations which, at a distance,
looked like crochet, but upon
closer inspection were nothing
but little coloured rosettes clev-
erly put together with reams of
matching chorded braiding to ef-
fect a latticed look.
The men's line, of which
there was a wider than usual se-
lection, showed a bit of flair as
well, in that the pieces were not
the regular run-of-the-mill fare,
but were equally as varied,
colourful and creative as the la-
dies' garments, and in some in-
stances matched a similar item in
the women's line, which is some-
thing most couples would find
Yet another novelty, which
is a trend with Shape in its quest
to add variety and flavour to its
launching, was the mannequin
factor, borrowed from the run-

ways of Europe, whereby select
models go into a dead freeze,
arching their bodies at rather gro-
tesque angles to better show off
the garment they are wearing,
and at the same time allow the
patron to examine it more
This, needless to say, went
down well with those present at
the launch.. .a bit too well one
might add, since rather than ap-'
preciate the gesture for what it
was worth there were attempts
in some quarters 'to trivialise it.
Colours, in true Shape tradi-
tion in recognition of its Carib-
bean roots, are till vibrant this
season, though not with the
same intensity as in the past, but
as it was pointed out later, there
was a reason for this as the en-
tire collection was dedicated to
evening wear, which is a depar-
ture from the norm for the
house. The accent on
accessorising as well, we were
told, was also deliberate, as the
inherent message, which is in
keeping with the theme, is in-
tended for the younger., genera-
tion who seem to have no sense
of occasion these days.
Hence her use of a younger
crop of models outside of her
usual stable, said Shape Manag-
ing and Design Director, Donna
Ramnsainm -James.
Lamenting the loss ot ke\
moral and social dalue tc'hat
once made this country stand
out in ihe region. James said


"Guyanese women in my
mother's time were one of the
best dressed in the Caribbean;
today we are among the worst.
When I say that, I don't mean
in terms of style ...I mean we
no longer have a sense of occa-
sion, so we will have young
people turning up to a formal
function in jeans and midriff
She got the idea of having
legacy as her theme this year
while attending the last Bishop's
High School's reunion which was
held in New York in August and
had as its theme a similar topic,
the essence of which was what
they, as old students, were pass-
ing on to the younger generation.
"It suddenly dawned on me
that we don't need to confine
ourselves to just education
...that the term could also relate
to fashion.. .in terms of what are
we as the exponents of fashion
and design in Guyana teaching
our public...how are we enhanc-
ing and lifting the standards of
the man in the street in terms of
how they perceive what is right
and what is wrong.
"And I thought that as some-
body who has a little more ex-
perience than most that it Aas
my duty to do so. So that is
% hat this collection is all
about ..that is %.h, I erint so
deep and that is h\ hwe hand-
made our jeweiereN to shov the
outfit in totality. You can't ha\e

Guyanese," she said.
Her liberal use of crochet,
she said, was her way of putting
money in the pockets of those
women who have no other
means of earning a living while
at the same time doing her bit to
preserve a way of life that is on
the verge of becoming extinct.
"We have a lot of older
people.in Guyana who are
'scrunting' ...but the one thing
they are good at is crocheting. I
was trying, whilst including it in
my industry, to put some money
into the hands of people who
otherwise don't have much to
give now. They gave a lot...they
were all civil servants.. .mothers
and grandmothers...
"So, hopefully, by incorpo-
rating it into this [collection], it
will become fashionable... be in
demand....the younger people
will pick it up.. .so we don't lose
it ...as we have so many other
things in Guyana."
ommenting on her de
parture from tradition
by forgoing the things
she likes doing best to concen-
trate on just evening wear,
James, who admitted that this
was perhaps the most challeng-
ing of her seven successive col-
lections to date, said:
"I like clothes that are el-
egantly casual... day to night
clothing that require just a
change of jewellery. But this
time, what I tried to do, because
of my concern with economics
and other matters ...was to cre-
ate evening clothes that are to-
tally wearable. ...not something
to wear on just one occasion and
be done... but something that
could be used to attend a multi-
plicity of functions."
Fabrics this year are all natu-
ral as usual and include cotton of
all descriptions from crinkled to
cotton gauze, which latter is a
favourite of the designer's; four
different types of linen includ-
ing the Irish variety which is
hand-woven and imported from
Europe; silk; and loads of jute.
Trimmings comprise huge
removable floral creations she
called pin-ons, lots of tassels
and fringes, braided fabric which
were used in the main to make
spaghetti straps, geometrically
patterned metal notions, and
wisps of can-can. And, unlike in
the past, when the designing on
most of the pieces were replicas
of Amerindian hieroglyphs, this
time around it is less directed, al-
most as if the designer were
communicating in some other
Ancestral tongue. -
Bronze was also the pre-
ferred colour used in highlighting
the detailing on the garments as
well as such accessories as hand-
bags and footwear worn through-
out the showing.
Items in this season's offer-
ing, which comprises a whop-
ping 102 pieces, come in shades
of green, blue, pink, purple,
brown, black and white, among
other attractive hues in the spec-
trum of colours.
According to her, as many
as 67 shades of colour were
used in the creation of this

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll look at What is Weather? And The
way in which you can Recycle refuse.


Look at the pictures. What are the children doing?
What kind of day is it in picture A? What are the
people doing in picture B? How would you describe
the day? Why are the leaves swaying in picture C?
What is happening to the towels the men have over their
heads? Look through the window of. your home or
where ever you are and describe the day.


Last week we found out hiat the word Recycle means.
Today I would like to discuss ways in which materials can
be recycled in your environment.

We can help the environment "our surrounding" by
re-cycling objects "materials". This means re-using them.
We can re-cycle our local glass bottles from which we drink
- Lemonade, Vita-malt, Heineken, etc by taking them to the

When you hear someone talk about clouds, sun, wind and
rain they are talking about the signs of weather. Weather
pattern is the condition of the atmosphere over a period of
time. This may be one month, one week, or one day. Some-
times the conditions of the weather would change. We tend
to predict the weather by looking up in the sky. When the
sky is all gray and there are a lot of clouds, the weather will
be rainy. When no clouds are in the sky the weather will be

shop so that they can be washed and re-filled. We can re-
cycle plastic containers by sterilising them and using them
for storage. In other countries old newspapers are re-cydle
so they can be used again. There are more other things that
can be re-cycled, such as aluminum cans, magazines and
Before you throw anything away think whether it could
be re-cycled.

Trees are important because they provide oxygen for us
and absorb carbon dioxide.
If we continue to cut down the rainforest (like we see on
the television, in other countries) we are reducing the amount
of oxygen available to the planet.
This is re-cycling of carbon dioxide into oxygen

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this Social Studies input To be further
able to understand information quickly and efficiently,
you need to discuss the notes you made on them. Use
your shoe boxes of notes more creatively. Keep alive
with proper learning! Love you. 'Bye.

THE house had retired for the night before
Rachel came through again.
"We're going home, mother and me," she told us.
"Anne's turned everyone out, and she's alone there
now. Mother wanted to stay, but Anne is beside her-
self and hysterical. She made them go. They were
afraid she'd be worse if they insisted on staying. She's
told Mother she knows who's responsible for Alan's
death, but she wouldn't name anybody."
"You do think she means us? After all, it is pos-
sible that Alan may have had some bitter quarrel of
his own that we know nothing about," Michael sug-
Rachel was more than dubious. "If it were only
that, she'd surely have let me in. She wouldn't have-
screamed at me to go away," she pointed out. "I'll
go over early in the morning, and see if she's changed
her mind."
With that we had to be content for the moment.
We could relax a little for a few hours at least. Rachel
told us later what happened the following morning.
She had got up an hour after dawn and made her
way across the fields to Anne's house. When she
reached it she had hesitated a little, reluctant to face
the possibility of the same sort of screaming repulse
that she had suffered the previous day. However, it
was useless simply to stand there looking at the house,
she plucked up courage and raised the knocker. The
sound of it echoed inside and she waited. There was
no result.
She tried the knocker again, more decisively. Still
no one answered.
Rachel became alarmed. She hammered the
knocker vigorously and stood listening. Then slowly
and apprehensively she lowered her hand from the
knocker, and went over to the house of the neighbour
who had been with Anne the previous day.
With one of the logs from the woodpile they pushed.
in a window, and then climbed inside. They found
Anne upstairs in her bedroom, hanging from a beam.
They took her down, between them, and laid her
on the bed. They were too late by some hours to help
her. The neighbour covered her with a sheet.
To Rachel it was all unreal. She was dazed. The
neighbour took her by the arm to lead her out. As
they were leaving she noticed a piece of paper lying
on the table. She picked it up.
"This'll be for you, or maybe your parents," she
said, putting it into Rachel's hand.
Rachel looked at it dully, reading the inscription on
the outside.
"But it's not she began automatically.
Then she checked herself, and pretended to look
at it more closely, as it occurred to her that the woman
could not read.
"Oh, I see yes, I'll give it to them," she said, and
slipped into the front of her dress the message that
was neither addressed to herself, nor to her parents,'
but to the inspector.

Today's piece was chosen to help you see once
again how dialogue helps in writing. The way the char-
acter formulates thoughts is captured in dialogue. But
beside dialogue, do you notice how the writer is re-
vealing the happening in simple terms but yet being ef-
fective? You feel what is to come even before it comes
along. Read the piece again and really get the feeling

that pervaded the atmosphere.

To help you with your dialogue, we now invite you
to do some revision on quotation marks. Punctuate
the following sentences, putting in all quotation marks.
(The capitals are in already.)
Reminder: "I never think of the future," wrote
Albert Einstein. "It comes soon enough."
1. We would rather die on our feet said Simon Sally
than live with our palms outstretched.
2. Prejudice is the child of ignorance quoted Sandra
3. Jane Diamond recited her poem It's All for the
Good of Mankind.
4. Someone once said Most easy roads seem to
lead downhill!
5. Desmond you get up the finance said Isabelle
I'll paste-up the fliers.
6. To be prepared for success said Jennifer is one
of the most effectual means of preserving life.
7. Do you know how to apply mouth-to-mouth
breathingtasked Mrs. Simmons?
8. The original title of Far From Danger is Do not
Disturb Sleeping Dogs.
9. Director Higgins said Know the number of your
national identification card.

As young writers you must learn to begin at the be-
ginning, that is, by first carefully choosing a title or
topic. Each topic usually identifies the subject for you
to focus on and the reader to look forward to.
Choose and think carefully for both parties.
There are about four different kinds of subjects to
choose'from when planning to write a composition.

The general ones can be something like: Girls,
Horse Races, or Parents.

The more personal ones canibe like: Girls I Have
KnoWU since Diaper Days, My First Horserace, and
Pare nsi Who Really Care.

The mbre precise subjects can be like: How to
'Sustain Female Friendships. Horse Betting, and Par-
ents God's Blessings.

There are some more revealing subjects such as:
There's nothing Better than a Female Companion,
How to Win on Horses, How Much of a Blessing
Should Parents Be?

Just how do you begin your composition whatever
fort ift may take? You can go right into your subject
especially if the writing is to be short or you can have
ap opemniig paragraph. Either, approach must work
toward arousing the reader's interest. For example:
Mehanical Brain at Work
The next time you dial a long-distance number
' withoaif the help of an operator, remember that you
are relying on a mechanical brain.
Deliver the Goods '
Put into words whatever you want to communicate
Begin to inform, entertain, or persuade as you see fit.
Fit in all the details that the reader needs to know to
help get your message to your reader. For example:
According to an engineer with Bell Laboratories,
the mechanical brain can work reliably one thousand

times as fast as the human brain and without fatigue.
The result....
This concerns the final portion of your composition.
At this point you tell your reader anything else that will
make what you are writing more important, more in-
teresting, more useful, and above all more memorable
to him or her. Of course, you can end off with a sum-
mary of the ideas with which you began your compo-
sition. Make your closing words count. For example:

In one year Guyanese made more than two million
long-distance calls. With modern computers on its
payroll today, the local telephone company predicts an
even greater number of calls.

dried fruit chutneys
and hot pickles comple-
ment an Indian meal.
These small additions to
the meal take the Indian
menu to a higher level of
taste experience. They lend
strong flavour impact to
the meal. They also bal-
ance tastes as they are
sweet, pungent, hot, and
sour all at the same time.
A typical North Indian
meal would consist
of chappatis, parantha or
puris (unleavened flat
breads), pilafs, dhals, curries
that are mild and made in
ghee, thick, creamy dhals,
vegetables seasoned with yo-
gurt or pomegranate powder,
lots of greens like spinach
and mustard greens cooked
with paneer, north Indian
pickles, fresh tomato, mint,
cilantro chutneys and yogurt
And of course,
Tandoori cooking is a
North Indian specialty and
famous the world over.
Tandoori chicken, naan,
tandoori roti, tandoori ke-
babs are a hit in most In-
dian restaurants.
South Indian cuisine is
rice-based. Rice is
combined with lentils to
make wonderful dosas, idlis,
vadas and uttapams. These
items are delicious besides
being nourishing and digest-
ible (due to the fermenting
process). They are combined

with sambhar (dhal), rasam
(tamarind dhal), dry and cur-
ried vegetable and pachadi
Their rice preparations

are also masterpieces like
biryani from Hyderabad,
lemon rice and rice seasoned
with coconut peanuts, tama-
rind, chilies, curry leaves,

(cont'd from last week)
At the beginning of drying
the temperature should not be
too high to prevent "case
hardening" of the tissues.
Case hardened products
become tough and dry,
dehydrate poorly and lose
flavour and nutrients. The
temperature f most of the
drying period lould be high
enough to ii bit spoilage
organisms anm o remove the
moisture fron 'ie food at an
efficient rate. ': c food should
be turned or sli. ed regtilarly to
ensure even drying and to
preventing clumpm wiping When
most of the v waterr has been
removed, the food becomes heat
sensitive and prone to scorching.
At this point the temperature
should be lowered and the food
inspected and stirred regularly.
Dehydration time depends
on shape and thickness of the
food, moisture content, pre-
drying treatment, dryer load,
dryer humidity, temperature and
rate of air venting.
With so much variation in
the efficiency of food dryers and
drying conditions, exact drying
times for products cannot be
accurately specified. Instead,
characteristics such as
appearance and texture are used
to give an estimation of drying
time completion. To test food
for dryness, remove a piece

from the drier and allow it to
cool to room temperature before
inspecting texture and
Vegetables are usually dried
to less than 5 % moisture and
fruits to less than 20 %. Dried
vegetables are usually brittle,
tough, crumbly and crisp.
Adequately dried fruits are
pliable, often leathery with no
evidence of surface moisture or
juice. Most fruits lose their
stickiness except those with
high sugar contents. A handful
of dried fruits when squeezed
should separate into pieces and
spring back to its original shape
when the pressure is released.
Packaging requirements for
dried fruits are critical to
prevent loss of product quality
after drying. Packaging
materials vary with the product
but basically the package
should protect the product
from contaminants such as soil,
water and air. The semi-moist
products have' particular
packaging requirements to
prevent re-absorption of
moisture. Moisture proof, air
proof sealed plastic poly /
cellophane bags with the
product placed in 'a protective
box may be used.
The package should then
be properly labelled with the
necessary and required
information according to the
existing labelling standards
as set out by the natural
regulatory body.

Protecting biodiversity is in
our self-interest. Nature's prod-
ucts support agriculture, cosmet-
ics and construction industries.
The loss of biodiversity may
threaten our food and water sup-
plies, our opportunities for rec-
reation and tourism, and ecologi-
cal services such as pollination,
fresh water and clean air.
Guyana forest contains ex-
tensive biodiversity with a rich

Guyana's biodiversity is
comparatively well preserved,
and the country has a history of
low incidence and intensity of
habitat conversion. However,
ongoing economic pressures in
Guyana have encouraged in-
creased investments in resource
extractive industries, putting in-
creased pressure on the natural
resource base and raising the real
possibility of increased threats
to biodiversity.

Parties to the CBD commit
to conserving biodiversity and
use it in a sustainable manner.
They agree to develop national
biodiversity strategies and action
plans to integrate these into
broader national plans. Other com-
mitments include:
To identify the impor-
tant components of biological
diversity that need to be con-

An on-going National Ca-

looking at Guyana's capacity to
implement the Rio Conventions.
However, the following con-
straints were recognized in meet-'
ing the obligations of the
UNCBD in Guyana:
Limited human re-
sources for environmental and
natural resources management:
Differing priorities of
various development agencies.

Guyana's actions to
implement the Convention and
meet its obligations will contrib-
ute to sustainable development
at national and global levels;
Meeting its obliga-
tions can strengthen Guyana's
voice at the global fora;
Activities to protect
biodiversity are eligible for sup-
port from the financing body for
the Convention, the Global En-
vironment Facility (GEF).
Funding is available for Govern-
ment agencies, Non-Govemmen-

tal Organisations (NGO) and/or
local communities.

The individual citizen is the
ultimate decision-maker. The
small choices that each person
make adds up to large impact on
the air, water and land.
Local communities play an
important role since they are the
true 'managers' of the ecosys-
tem in which they live and have
an impact on.
Governments will provide
leadership, but all sectors of so-
ciety should be involved. In a
time when economics is a domi-
nant force, it is important that
the private sector participate in
the protection and sustainable
use of biodiversity. Non-gov-
ernmental organizations should
also help to promote actions and
provide information on what
needs to be done.

It 'is an analysis of a)
Guyana's ability to meet its ob-
ligations under the Rio Conven-
tions, b) possible benefits from
synergistic approach to develop-
ment, and c) priority benefits for
national capacity development.
It is being undertaken by the
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) Guyana with fi-
nancial support from the Global
Environment Facility (GEF), and
in collaboration with the United
Nations Development
Prograunie (UNDP) other gov-
ernment agencies, non-govern-
ment-organisations, the private
sector and citizens.

The text of UNCBD in its
preamble states that the Con-
tracting Parties are "Aware of
the general lack of information
and knowledge regarding biologi-
cal diversity and of the urgent
need to develop scientific, tech-
nical and institutional capacities
to provide the basic understand-
ing upon which to plan and
implement appropriate mea-
sures." The NCSA Project is an
assessment of the Guyana's ca-
pacity in meeting the three UN
Conventions, including the
UNCBD. Read more on the

of insecticides on

and around pets

WE USE the word "insecticide" when
referring to a substance which can kill
flies, ticks, fleas, lice and mites. Actu-
ally, the more correct word is. "parasiti-
cide" since ticks and mites are, techni-
cally speaking not insects.

Anyway, let me today deal
with these potentially poison-
ous substances that come in the
form of powders, shampoos,
lotions, dips, dusts, sprays and

collars impregnated with chemi-
cals. Some of these products are
also used to sanitise kennels and
other areas where the animals
like to hang out.

F irst of all, let us be
clear that if these sub
stances which are
powerful enough to kill insects/
ticks (which have withstood
hundreds of thousands of years
of evolutionary change on the
planet earth), then they are po-
tent enough, if not used cor-
rectly, to kill the animals treated
with the stuff. Logically, there-
fore, when using these commer-
cial parasiticides, one must fol-
low the guidelines of usage given
by the manufacturers or, at

least, seek your veterinarian's
advice if you are not getting the
desired results. In other words,
if the manufacturer instructs
that you use one teaspoon to
every gallon of water, then
don't use two (especially if you
are using the solution on a
young puppy). Also, do not use
a weaker dilution, because the
insects/ticks will become accus-
tomed to the chemical and
therefore become immune to its
