retired colonels

TWO Guyana Defence
Force (GDF) training
schools have been dedicated
to retired Colonels Carl
Morgan and Desmond Rob-
erts as part of the Army's
continuing 40th anniversary
At a simple but impressive
ceremony at Base Camp
Stephenson, Timehri on Fri-
day, the Non-Commissioned
Officers Tactics School and the
Skills School were renamed The
Colonel Carl Morgan Non-
Commissioned Officers Tactics
School and The Colonel
Desmond Roberts Skills
According to a GDF re-
lease, Col Morgan who unveiled
the plaque as a symbolic gesture

to rename the school, noted the
important role that both would
play in the continued develop-
ment of the Army.
He expressed regrets for the
absence of Col Roberts but in-
dicated that they had agreed to
make available yearly prizes for
the best paper submitted on a
topic of both military and so-
cial significance, and one for the
champion Non-Commissioned
Officer in the GDF.
The GDF noted that both
Morgan and Roberts started
their uniformed service as mem-
bers of the Queen's College Ca-
det Corps.
A few months after leaving
school, they were selected and
became members of the first
batch of six Cadet Officers of

the then British Guiana Special
Service Unit (BGSSU) to at-
tended the Mons Officer Cadet
School in the United Kingdom
in February 1965.
On their return, both offic-
ers served in numerous appoint-
ments in the newly-formed
GDF. The appointments in-
cluded Intelligence Officer, Re-
connaissance Platoon Com-
manders, Adjutant of the 1st
Battalion, Company Command-
ers, and Grade one (1) Staff Of-
Morgan also served in the
public sector as Chief Executive
Officer of the Matthew's Ridge,
Arakaka, Port Kaituma Devel-
opment Authority in 1979 and
as Director of Operations of the
Guyana Fisheries Corporation

before returning to the force to
assume the appointment of
Commandant, Guyana People's
He retired from military ser-
vice in 1990 and was appointed
Guyana's Ambassador to
Suriname that same year.
Roberts served as Director
General in the Guyana National
Service and retired from the
Army in July 1990.
The. ceremony was at-
tended by Chief of Staff Briga-
dier Edward Collins, Col Linden
Ross, Commander 1 Infantry
Battalion, Col Frank Bispham,
Commander 2nd Infantry Bat-
talion Group Reserve and Lt Col
Bruce Lovell, Commander of
the Training Corps, among
other senior officers and ranks
of the Army.
Ranks had earlier wit-
nessed the final events of a
three-day fitness competition
which was won by the 31
Special Forces Squadron, the
release said.

Go-Invest projects

5,000 new jobs
THE Guyana Office for Investment iGo-invest) is project-
ing more than 5,000 new jobs will be available through a
combination of projects including investments by existing
companies and a series of new business ventures.
Director of the agency Mr Geoffrey Da Sifa, iold the Gov-
emrnment Information Agency (GINA) the 10 administrative regions
m the country are poised to benefit from a host of business ven-
tures, spanning se% eral ke) sectors, and many are in progress.
These include investments in the forestr, mining. tourism, light
manufacturing, financial, and processed and fresh foods sectors
New investments in the mining sector will ultimately cre-
ale emploN meant for 850 people while %entuwes in forest, and
light manufacturing %ill see an additional 182 and 42jobs being
created, respectively,. he said.
"A significant percentage of the investments are in non-tra-
ditional.sectors. This area has attracted a combination of both
local and foreign direct investments, which indicates that tradi-
tional sectors such as bauxite and sugar are no longer the sole
source -of econormc acuity,'" Da Silvasaid.
He told GINA that the call centre business also has tre-
mendous potential because it requires a minimum initial invest-
ment and creates employment for dozens of Guyanese.
"A new call centre is set to come on stream. This type of
investment provides our young people with the opportunity)
to learn about other counties and cultures Training is also pro-
vided, enabling them to function more efficiently and effec-
tively,"Da Siva noted
The government has put in place a number of mechamnsns
for the growth of both local and Foreign Direct Investment
'FDI,. as part of jut efforts to fuel economic growth and social
-well-being, GINA said.
Go-Invest is the primary contact for mnestors and export-
ers and liaises, on their behalf. with goermnmen ministries and
other agencies in an efficient and effect e manner, it added;
It said Go-Invest also processes applications for conces-
sions and expedites other government support.

Bird flu monitoring:

Watch ba


WATCH those backyard
That's the word from the
National Influenza Pandemic
Committee as Guyana main-
tains a close watch for signs of
the dreaded biid flu that is
spreading panic in Asia and
other countries.
It yesterday also announced
that officials are assessing ani-
mal health surveillance systems
on the borders, especially with
The committee in its
weekly update said Guyana
continues to be vigilant and is
advancing its preparation by
implementing the National In-
fluenza Preparedness Plan.
It said the Animal Health
Technical Committee has devel-
oped a draft animal health and
surveillance work plan which
focuses not only on the com-
mercial poultry industry, but
also domestic and backyard
chicken rearing practices and
wildlife activities.
Health officials around the
world have been on the watch for
the H5N1 strain of the virus that
experts fear may mutate just
enough to allow it to be easily
transmitted among humans. A le-
thal strain of this virus has killed
67 of the 130 people it has in-
fected in Asia since late 2003,
but the real fear is that it will
mutate and acquire the ability to
pass from human to human,
causing a global pandemic.
The virus has been found in
poultry and birds in some coun-
tries and the Guyana committee
yesterday stressed the need for
'citizens bio-security' to help
guard against its introduction
It said that while the Min-
istry of Health and the Minis-
try of Agriculture have been
strengthening the surveillance
system to identify the possible
emergence of the bird flu virus

in Guyana as soon as it enters
(if at all), it is important for
people to be part of the surveil-
lance system.
It is urging people to be in-
volved in this early alert systeni
by looking for signs:
** Report sick birds (poul-
try and wild)
** Practice backyard bio-se-
curity: those persons with poul-
try farms (including backyard
farms) should restrict traffic in
the area. Do not allow strang-
ers in the vicinity of the birds
and always disinfect shoes,
clothes and hands to prevent a
spread of diseases
The committee noted that mi-
gratory birds such as wild ducks,
while being the most resistant to
this virus, are the mechanism by
which it crosses borders and
spreads to domesticated poultry.
Humans are then exposed to the
virus via the faecal matter (drop-
pings), raw or undercooked poul-
try meat and blood.
Activities such as slaughter-
ing, preparation of the bird for
cooking (de-feathering, dissect-
ing) in areas where transmission
is taking place (Asia) are
deemed high risk. In these areas
occasional transmission to hu-
mans may occur resulting in ill-
ness and even death.

The committee said the
Ministry of Agriculture is in
Region Nine (Upper Takutu/
Upper Essequibo) assessing the
animal health surveillance sys-
tems in place at the borders es-

from ECD.

pecially with Brazil.
The Ministry of Health
also concluded a visit to Region
Six (East Berbice/Corentyne),
mainly the border areas with
Suriname, to strengthen the
Port Health Services at the
harbour at New Amsterdam, the
ferry port at Molsen Creek and
other informal points of entry
along the Corentyne Coast.
Even though no travel re-
strictions-or screening measures
are advised at this time, the
Ministry of Health and the
Ministry of Home Affairs are
working to improve the surveil-
lance at all international ports of
entry, the committee reported.
It advised that international
travel remain safe.
The other technical sub-
groups: Surveillance (including
Monitoring and Evaluation), In-
formation and Communication
and Health Services are devel-
oping individual strategy plans
to further prepare for any pos-
sible introduction of avian influ-
enza into Guyana.
Plans are already advanced
for procuring and stocking sev-
eral essential items such as
drugs, medical supplies and
safety equipment needed to re-
spond to any possible bird flu
outbreak, the committee said.
In the meantime, washing
hands using soap and water
regularly is the most effective


- Border surveillance under way

way of preventing the spread of
many infectious diseases includ-
ing bird flu, it added.
The advisory said:
"Hand washing with soap
and water-must be promoted
actively at all our schools, work
places, (farms, fields, factories,
offices, etc.) at all entertainment
and food service outlets, health
care and medical facilities, in the
home and all other places where
people gather.
The general public is also
advised to cover nose and
mouth when sneezing and
coughing with a clean handker-
chief or tissue. This measure re-
duces the spread of infectious
agents.that may cause diseases
such as fluid"
Washing hands with soap
and water after handling any
raw or frozen poultry or poul-
try products and other meats
and fish is absolutely necessary
to maintain food safety, it also
Animals found dead should
not be used for human con-
sumption or for any purpose,
and sick animals should not be
slaughtered for use as food.
All dead wild birds and any
suspect 'ease of influenza in
birds should be reported to any
Veterinary Officer, Flock Super-
visor or Agriculture Field Of-
ficer and they will provide fur-
ther advice.

There are currently no restric-
tions of travel to countries experi-
encing avian influenza and the
screening of visitors from those ar-
eas is not advised at this time by
the World Health Organisation.
However, travellers to coun-
tries experiencing both cases of
human and animal influenza are
requested to refrain from visit-
ing farmers markets (live animal
markets) and poultry farms.
They are also advised to
consume well cooked poultry
and poultry products to
minimise the risk of exposure to
the virus.

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 20, 2005

Editorial )




T A time of mounting crime horrors across
the Caribbean Community,
the government and parliamentary oppo-
sition of Trinidad and Tobago must be com-
mended for emerging with an agreement nego-
tiated during successive days of meetings last
week in Port-of-Spain.
For all their known differences on various social, eco-
nomic and political issues, including on democratic gov-
ernance, Prime Minister Patrick Manning and Opposi-

tion Leader Basdeo Panday led their respective teams
into serious negotiations.
By Friday they had emerged with a significant anti-
crime agreement package.
To demonstrate the. extent to which they were pre-
pared to reflect the yearnings of a population at virtual
wits end over escalating murders, ransom kidnapping,
armed robberies and violence, both sides made some
very important concessions.
For example, the Manning administration agreed to
scrap its controversial plan to replace the Police Ser-
vice Commission with a Police Management Authority
which the opposition had contended would be subjected
to political manipulations.
Panday's team, on the other hand, dropped
its objections to new legislation that would deny bail to
those charged with kidnapping offences pending trial.
The agreement package, now to be vigorously pur-
sued, also includes introduction of new DNA legislation;
implementation of the Criminal Injuries Compensation
Act with an increase from a paltry TT$25,000
(TT$6=US$1) to $250,000; as well a review of the Equal
Opportunity Bill and discussions on constitutional re-
Coincidentally, the anti-crime unity across in Trinidad
" and Tobago came last week while the Guyana Govern-
ment was moving ahead with a US$1Million 'Citizens
Security Investment Programme'.as part of its overall
anti-crime strategies.
Funded by the Inter-American Development Bank,
this programme, as explained by the Ministry of Home
Affairs, will boost the capacity of the Guyana Police Force
in pursuit of new approaches to curb the levels of vio-

lence in our communities with special focus on vulner-
able youths and general crime management.
While it is primarily the responsibility of governments
to control crime, it is becoming increasingly evident, to
judge from reports across the Caribbean Community,
that cooperation of all sectors of society, political oppo-
sition and civil society organizations included, must be
forthcoming to more effectively battle the criminal ram-
The dread crime situations in Jamaica and Trinidad
and Tobago have certainly compelled the governing and
opposition parties to meet and discuss ideas on how
best to deal with the challenging problems confronting
the citizens of those countries.
Enlightened cooperation responses are certainly
needed also here in Guyana.

India, China spreading

business wings in CARICOM

By Rickey Singh
HE unprecedented de
portation from Barba
dos last week of 14 In-
dian nationals for supposedly
working without immigration
permits, has pushed, embar-
rassingly on the
defensive one of
India's leading construction
corporations, Larsen &
Toubro, as well as World Cup
Barbados (WCB).
Both are involved in a con-
struction project at Kensington
Oval for Cricket World Cup
2007 and questions abound on,
including the role of the Barba-
dos Government itself, how and
why those Indian workers had
to suffer, as they did, the agony
of public humiliation.

mits and had overstayed their
30-day visitor's visa granted on

They had arrived on the

To their deep hurt, while
they were engaged, casually,
on construction work and at
Kensington Oval, Barbados' in-
ternationally famous '
cricket venue, awaiting prom-
ised work permits that never
came, they were huddled to-
gether in a government-owned
warehouse, with the most mini-
mum-of facilities, that had

of criticisms and questions
about the handling of the whole
sordid affair by a combination
of sources foremost being
Larsen & Toubro, the Barbados

In Guyana, corporations
of India and China are,
respectively, involved in multi-
million public sector projects,
such as, respectively, the US$25
million stadium for Cricket
World Cup 2007 and a National
Convention Centre with US$8
million grant aid.
In the case of Jamaica, a
Chinese construction enterprise
has been contracted for the
US$30 million stadium project
in Trelawny on the north
coast, based on a long-term line
of credit from the government
in Beijing. The Chinese are also
involved in stadium projects for
World Cup 2007 in Grenada and
Antigua and Barbuda.
Grenada, which has re
cently terminated years
of relations with Taiwan, is now
the beneficiary of a US$40 mil-

state, for the construction of a

facilitated with requisite
work permits, applications
for which are made directly
to the beneficiary country's
government, in consultation
with the Chinese and Indian
governments, at times
through their diplomatic mis-


Going the route of work
permits has become a necessity,
especially in view of rising com-
plaints against even nationals
of CARICOM who often turn

to do so.

in Barbados back in 1991
when a group of its nationals
were involved in construction

first obtaining work permits..

involving the 14 Indian con-

I IN trouble, Rasta big, big
You were right; I shouldn't
have gone to lunch with Robert
.Alright, don't rub it in. You
warned me but your warning to
be careful about who I break-
bread with came after I had bro-
ken bread with Mr Corbin.
Who I in trouble with?
No, not that Robert. Why
you so fraid that-Robert and
why you breaking out in sweat
every time you think about him?
You really got-to get a hold
of yourself, Rasta. This other
Robert fear getting to you in a
bad way. Take a deep breath
and calm yourself down and
hear my fresh trials.
Remember last week how I
said I Ras Rief Khan ain't fraid
no man and I'll break bread with
who I please?,
Well, I should have stuffed
some dry bread in my mouth to
keep it shut.
No," Rasta. I am not about
to be fired for breaking bread
with Mr Corbin. That's small
yams and my worries bigger
than that.
Stop rolling up your eyes
and looking over your shoulder
for the other Robert and listen
to me worries, Rasta.
That lunch with Mr Corbin
was a good thing but believe me,
I didn't know so many prob-
lems would have come from it.
I remember you shook your
head as you worried about the
other 'parties' hearing about me
having lunch with Mr Corbin
and you were right to shake
your dreadlocks in indignation,
Rasta. You were right, bro.
Now is not one, but 30 -
that's right, Rasta, THIRTY
other parties want to invite me
to lunch with them! You see my
You didn't know that
Guyana had so many political
parties, Rasta? Where you liv-
That's the figure from the
Guyana Elections Commission
and they may have to revise
that number upwards long be-
fore the elections next year. We
may end up with 50 political
parties contesting the elections.
What's that you say?
That's why so many people
leaving Guyana? Because so
many political parties driving
them nuts?
And people getting even
more confused now with the
launching of a second 'third
force' before the launching of a
first 'third force'? And you
wondering who leading who?
I shaking my head too,
Rasta. Is bare confusion in the
Yes, I see too how they
dump poor Mr C.N. Sharma af-
ter using his TV station to get
They have abandoned the
'Voice of the People' to form
their own platform and alliance
and forgot to include him in the
scheme of things. They are re-
ally ungrateful, Rasta.
Yes, and I see that the first
'third force' that was upstaged
by the second 'third force' has

two newspapers (the two lead-
ers getting turns to write long
columns in one), one television
station whose owner is a co-
leader, and a few supporters in
key media positions.
So they don't need Mr
Sharma and his TV station any
more. They use he and they
dump he.
I remember Mr Sharma lead-
ing marches around Georgetown
on behalf of the people, and
walking through mud and rain
and in hot, hot sun all over the
country to find out people's
problems and air them on his
television station and now they
up and dump him from their
new alliances.
No wonder Mr Sharma's
sidekick, Mr Sankies wrote to
'the newspapers complaining
that the media were ignoring his
leader in preference to others
who have suddenly appeared on
the scene to steal the limelight
from him. Poor Mr Sharma.
Yes Rasta, I hear you say-
ing that politics is t dirty game.
That's why I so scared

about this flood of lunch invi-
tations I getting, bro.
I accepted Mr Corbin's in-
vitation because I know he
wanted to gaff and you remem-
ber I told you how.I thought he
was looking at me a little plead-
ingly, like if he wanted to ask
me to be his running mate for
the elections next year?
Now is everybody after I
Ras Rief Khan! How am I to
cope with having lunch with all
these people, Rasta? If you be-
lieve that Guyanese fleeing -the
country because political parties
mushrooming faster than women
making babies, how do you ex-
pect me to break bread with all
of them and keep my sanity?
I am only I Ras Rief Khan
and am not J. Christ and I can't
work miracles!
What's that you say? Tell
my secretary to tell them that I
have been hit by the bird flu and
can't have lunch until after the
elections next year, even if it's
only bread for lunch? And I too
busy to have breakfast or dinner?
You think it might work?

Indian women's club observes 26th


- Seeks

'new, young,

vibrant' members

By Linda Rutherford
THE conviviality and cama-
raderie was genuine as well
as infectious and very much
in keeping with the spirit in
which the organisation was
founded, .namely, to foster
closer cultural ties between
the peoples of Guyana and
The occasion was the gath-
ering of some 30 women, mem-
bers all of the Women's Club of
the Indian Cultural Centre and
their guests, mid-afternoon on
November 11 at their New Ha-
ven, Bel Air, Georgetown head-
quarters to celebrate their 26th
Dressed in traditional finery,
of mainly saris and cholis and
the more popular shalwar
kameez, they met, talked,
laughed, ate, and even enter-
tained each other in song as they
awaited the arrival of a represen-
tative of the Guyana Cancer So-

city to start the ball rolling.
Apart from marking the
passage of another milestone in
the life of the club, which was
founded on November 9, 1979,
the purpose of their being there
that afternoon was expressly to
make a cash donation to the
Cancer Society so as it may
carry on its fight against cancer,
a disease that not only targets
women like themselves but our
men folk as well.
And that's what the
organisation is all about; raising
funds for needy causes says
Vice-President, Ms Sandra
Harricharan. "We've been rais-
ing funds left, right, and
centre...and we've been giving
money to different
organizations," she said.
Among some of the local
charities with which they have
worked over the years are Help

women; the Dharam Shala

GPL has applied to and received approval from the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to increase the fuel
surcharge from $8.34 to $12.40 to help cushion the effects of high prices the company pays for fuel each month.
The increase is $4.06.
But, the Basic Rates have been reduced by $4.06, the same amount as the increased surcharge.

This means that there will be no effect on customers.

- The reduction of the Basic Rates will effectively cancel out the increase in the fuel surcharge and customers will
continue to pay the same tariffs for electricity consumed.

who were interested in Indian culture." and today, according to
the secretary. Ms Pushpa Tmian. there is an aggressive drive on
to attract "a new, young and % ibrant membership" into their fold.
According to Harncharan: -vWe have opened our membership
- i to all omen w ho are interested in Indian culture and anr. It does
not matter whether you're Indian, African. Chinese, or Portu-
S guese once you have an interest in it you are welcome."
As things stand at present. Tiwari said, membership. which
at one time stood at more than 100, is now down to between 40
and 60 largely due to migration, and in the case of those diplo-
matic spouses among them, their husbands' recall to their coun-
trie. ut origin.
Besides their membership drive, which will be ongoing.
among other plans the group has in mind for the coming year,
Hamcharan said. is the promotion and marketing of their cook-
erv book, Culinary Delights, now in its second edition, through
e rs" whichthey hope to raise a minimum of $2M. whichh sum has
already been earmarked for specific projects.
The cookery book, the compilation of which was inspired
by former High Commnssioner. the late Mr A.D. Atuk. was first
published and launched back in the early 90s during former High
Commissioner, Mr Ramiah Rajagopalan's tenure here.
Copies of this ne%% edtuon. which was launched last year as
part of a slew of activines to mark their jubilee anniversary, are
already on the shelves of some of the leading .bookstores here,
.. and it is hoped that with the Yuletide season already upon us,
there wA ill be enough in print to satisfy the anticipated demand.
The Women's Club of the Indian Cultural Centre enjoys the
. patronage of the Indian High Commission and receives an an-

Man in house near

chlorine gas leak dies
A MAN who lived in a house near a Guyana Water Incor-
porated (GVIl) treatment plant which suffered a chlorine
gas leak has died.
In a press release Friday, the company expressed regrets at
the death of Mr Samuels whose house it said bordered the Fel-
lowslup water treatment plant on the West Coast Demerara
where there w as a chlorine gas leak on October 12. last.
GW1 extended its deepest sympathies to his widow and
fanuls but said that until a post mortem is earned out, any pro-
nouncements about the cause of death are purely .peculatuon
The company said it will not comment on this aspect until
the coroner's erdici has been issued
However, it does not believe that the %ery mild expo-
sure to the chlorine gas which Samuels may or ma3 not
base been exposed to would be a cause of death.

The spoilers and the web

B3 Gwynne Dyer

"THE situation can certainly
be criticized but the proposed
remedies seem much worse,"
said the Paris-based Reporters
Sans Frontieres, not exactly
the first organisation that you
would expect to rally to the U.S.
Government's position.
"If there was ever a time to
invoke the maxim 'If it ain't
broke.,don't fix ift". Lhs is it"said
Joseph A. Morris, a Chicago-
based lawyer who watched
Internet law evolve from a ring-
side seat as a senior official at the
U.S. Justice Department. Both
-, ere ..lrnmed b' the change, that
are being considered in Tunis.
Representatives of 170 coun-
tries were inTunisiafor the World
SYnmpcsiLim on the Information
Society (16-18 November), and
warnings were flying that the
very future of the Internet is at
stake. The United Nations wants

to take control of the web away
from the non-profit American
corporation that currently runs
it and to give it instead to an in-
ternational body where all the UN
members would have influence on
its decisions. And the most en--
thusiastic backers of this idea,
unsurprisingly, are countries like
China, Libya and Iran that want
to limit free speech on the web.
The scenes in Tunis itself re-
inforced the notion that this con-
ference is really a conspiracy
against the free flow of informa-
tion. Tunisian police roughed
journalists up outside the confer-
ence centre and an alternative
'Citizens' Symposium on the In-
formation Society' found its res-
ervations for hotel meeting rooms
mysteriously cancelled. Seven
leading Tunisian figures includ-
ing the head of the Union of Tu-
nisian Journalists were on hun-
ger strike to demand greater free-
dom of speech in their own coun-
try while the world's attention
was temporarily turned their
The threat to the Internet as
a self-administering organisation
has not come into being
overnight. Other governments
have long disliked the fact that it
is run by an American non-profit
organisation, the Internet Corpo-
ration for Assigned Names and
Numbers (ICANN) that was cre-
ated and is ultimately supervised
by the United States Department
of Commerce.

No surprise there: as UN Sec-
retary-General Kofi Annan wrote
recently in the Washington Post,
"it would be naive to expect
(other) governments -not to take
an interest" in who runs the
In practice, however, the U.S.
Government has let ICANN run
itself, and that has given us the
best of all possible worlds: inde-
pendent, non-political manage-
ment of the world's key informa-
tion technology. The small
ICANN organisation based in the
seaside Los Angeles suburb of
Marina del Rey has efficiently
supervised the hundredfold ex-
pansion of the Internet over the
past decade with no trace of
prejudice or favouritism towards
any country, and it only costs $15
million a year. But the good old
days may be almost over.
Part of the problem resides
in the United States itself. The
U.S. statute that created ICANN
in 1998 (replacing an earlier
Internet governing body that was
also U.S.-based) does allow for
some international representation
on the board of directors. But that
statute is only a few months away
from expiry, and the Bush Ad-
ministration is planning to replace
it with a private for-profit cor-
poration that would also be U.S.-
based and subject only to U.S.
ICANN's managers did not
help their case for survival by
proposing a new top-level do-

A-Js fr. % iw., n,.

main (like .com, .net and .org) that
would be called .xxx, and would
be exclusively for Internet por-
nography. Their intention was
presumably to segregate the por-
nography in this one domain so
that it didn't keep cropping up
everywhere else on the net, but it
was as naive politically as it was
commercially. The pornographers
themselves would resist being
walled off in a single domain, and
ICANN gave both the Bush Ad-
ministration and hostile foreign
governments a stick to beat it
Meanwhile, the control
freaks who abound in every gov-
ernment are trying to get a
stranglehold on the Internet by
putting it under the control of the

mately answerable to the UN. By

increased the flow of information

have known it is caught in a pin-

could have an unhappy ending.
Any vote taken at last
week's symposium in Tunis
would not be binding on the
U.S. Government, which could
continue with its plans to hand
the management of the
Internet over to a private cor-

their citizens from "corrupt-

matter of regional air trans-
The commission called for a
"definitive community policy" to
ensure intra-regional movement of
goods and people, to facilitate
tourism and non-tourism travel
and the exchange of goods with
the outside world.
The commission had re-
viewed the experience of the re-
gion in which countries had pur-
sued the option of national air-
lines, with at least three of them
serving multi-destinations within
the Caribbean.
The Barbados-based
Caribbean Airways had
already collapsed,
and Guyana
Airways -
even though
it plied only
Guyana and coun-
tries outside the region
was already dying.
Inevitably the commission
came to the conclusion that a
single CARICOM airline, in
some form, was vitally necessary
and the national airline option
should be abandoned. Nonethe-
less, the policy of individual na-
tional airlines continued and has
proven to be a long, very expen-
sive and dismal failure.
It is a failure that the region
cannot afford to continue.
The opportunity to do some-
thing positive and constructive is
now ripe. Our governments
should seize the moment.
Three government-owned
airlines that serve multi-destina-
tions within the region, are all
undergoing major restructuring
exercises. This follows a decade
during which they collectively
incurred losses of more than
'S$1.5 billion funded by taxpay-
ers' money. These airing es are: Air
Jamaica, BWiA and ' T.

only between the Bahamas and,
U.S. ports, is aiso losing money
and the governrmen is consider-
ing privatizing it, .bu
privatisation did no work for Air
Jamaica, BWIA or LIAT.
The current restructuring are
expensive and again are being
funded by the taxpayers to the
tune of US$400 million for Air
,amaica, US$250 million for
BWIA and USS50 million for
LIAT the LIA-y funding com-
irtg from the regional Oi;
'Stabilisation Fund initialiy.estab- t

These investments warrant .
The CARICOM region has
-relied on BWIA for 65 years.

Other than the periodic ex-
ception that proves the rule, nri
; e of these airlines has been proF-
tiable ufder government or pri-
ate sector ownership for a coC-
Sctive total of more than 150

The airline industry is now
characterized, increasingly, by an
'Open Skies' environment under
which, between any two coun-
tries, any airline from either coun-
try can fly as often as they
choose and charge whatever fares
the market will bear to anywhere
in the other country.
Where Caribbean airlines
used to compete with just o n e
airline on each route
they now compete
with several.
Our airlines are

small- their col-
lective annual traffic is around 3.5
million passengers.
As a basis for comparison the
U.S. annual domestic traffic is
almost 500 million. International
traffic to/from the U.S. is 140
million annually with 54 per cent
of that carried by U.S. airlines.
Traffic between the Caribbean
and the U.S. in 2004 was 15 mil-
lion of which 83 per cent was
carried on U.S. airlines.
Caribbean airlines have sur-
vived apart from huge govern-
ment subsidies of taxpayers"
money on loyalty from the do-
mestic and diaspora markets.
Passenger load factors for our
airlines have been below 65 per
cent not enough to be profitable
when the major U.S. airline:: con-
tinue Io lose money even with
load factors above 75 per cem.

They have been setting the

einly in orma banlkruptcy pro-

Air Jamaica, BWIA and
LIAT, over the last 10 years, have
incurred losses of more than
US$1.5 billion and are now, be-
tween them, receiving US$700
million to restructure their opera-
tions in the hope of mak-
ing them profitable.
Despite the
losses, in- iI

tions, each airline is again
restructuring its own opera-

Ten years ago, the Caribbean
Tourism Organisation (CTO)
commissioned an analysis of the
potential benefits of inter airline
cooperation and integration to

present to the airlines and their
government owners to form the
basis of a rational discussion of
how to create a viable, sustain-
able regional airline industry.
The report identified huge
savings that could be achieved
through cooperation and differ-
ent levels of integration. The an-
nual savings were sufficient to
offset the annual losses that

airline did
its own thing. More
money a few changes the
same basic system though this
time under private sector man-
agement. The result? US$1.5 bil-
lion in taxpayer funded losses.
Recently, the Caribbean Ho-
tel Association (CHA) examined
the issues again and in clear, un-
equivocal terns concluded that a
regional airline is the only way
It issued a White Paper to
form the basis for a discussion

between the three airlines and
their government owners on the
regional dimension to the airline
crisis in the region and called for
the creation of a regional airline.
So far, this White Paper has

S nored.
suggests that
a regional air-
line could be
created with lim-
ited economic dis-
location by making
use of the opera-

erate an integrated flight
schedule developed by an inte-
grated head office and marketing
organisation for all three airlines
- with significant cost savings
from streamlined systems, re-
duced overlap, economies of
scale, greater network efficiencies
and a greater revenue base
through having an integrated, con-
nected network.
The arguments offered by the
airlines for not even examining the
regional solution are the same as
before: each says we are willing
but the others cannot be relied

upon. They also argue that each
airline has to fix its own prob-
lems before it can enter a merger
or part of an alliance.
In the end, these are nothing
but excuses that maintain failed
airlines that are sucking govern-
ment money that is needed else-
The national airline option
has not worked for the
CARICOM area. And, if it con-
tinues to be pursued, air traffic
intoandoutof theregionwillpass
only to carriers of other countries
with little if any regard for
CARICOM's development
The CTO and CHA studies
provide suggestions for a regional
entity that would help the
CARICOM area to protect its
interests, and save a large part of
the monies now being spent to
maintain the appearance of fit-
ness amongsick airlines.
It's high time that the deci-
sion-makers in governments de-
velop the community policy on
air transportation that the West
India Commission urged.
Ministers of Tourism and
Transportation should join the
CTO and CHA in insisting
that the recommendations of
the recent studies be given se-
rious attention.

ture of the scenes in this book:
"For those who have visited the Rupununi or lived there
before, this book is a spectacular album of memories. For oth-

vital to-reduce flooding.
Construction of buildings and bridges take little consideration
of the need for adequate drainage into account. Recently, an elderly
citizen of Garnett Street in Georgetown was bemoaning the fact
that coupled with City Hall's neglect of drainage in their area, in-
considerate construction of bridges and other structures were block-
ing drainage. This story is played out in many other communities
along our coast land.
The poor disposal of garbage, especially plastic and styro-foam
materials are undoing any effort to enhance drainage. Look into
some of the main canals and at the sluice doors and you see the
scary potential for blockages.
Having gone through the flood earlier this year, it is expected
that citizens and the authorities, especially at the local and munici-
pal levels, would be wiser in taking all those precautionary mea-.
sures humanly possible to prevent such a disaster recurring.
It is the wish of all Guyanese that there will never be a repeat
of the devastating flood. But wishing and hoping alone cannot work.
Recently, President Jagdeo embarked on an outreach to get re-
gional and municipal authorities in the vulnerable regions to get into
action to prevent flooding. He made available millions of dollars
more for emergency and special works to augment the current
programmes of the regional bodies, the Georgetown Town Council
and other agencies. But these interventions are not done in isola-
Over the past decade, the Government has consistently invested
billions of dollars, into sea defence works and drainage and irriga-
tion schemes for both residential and farming areas. For this year
alone, according to a recent GINA feature, "the Government has
spent nearly $2.5 billon to ensure that the capacity of the drainage
and irrigation (D&I) system is improved to deal with heavy rain-',
The expenditure over the years tells the story.
Year $M
1995 206.2
*l996 310.7
1997 357.3
1998 410.
1999 511.8
2000 927.1
2001 584.4
2002 479.1
2003 367
2004 400.0
These sums exclude major projects and expenditures by the re-
gional bodies to maintain and service these structures and systems.
Also, they do not account for the annual special allocations given
by Central Government to the Georgetown City Council to admin-
ister the drainage system in the Capital City.
It must be pointed out that the special attention given to the
East Demerara and Boerasirie Conservancy Dams account for a criti-
cal aspect in the national flood control and prevention plan. Recent
measures to better boost the East Demerara Water Conservancy
Dam reflect a strategic focus to control the flood waters in the
backlands. ............
But no matter how much monies are expended, the probleii"
and threats would not go away if there is not effective management
and vigilance. There are too many complaints from residents and
farmers of slow of response by the relevant authorities and even
poor work. The Government has insisted that the various respon-
sible agencies and regional bodies remain on guard and take the nec-
essary precautions and prevention. Far too often, the neglect or
carelessness of certain individuals can lead to suffering arid loss af-
fecting thousands of persons.
Guyana is naturally at a disadvantage and vulnerable to flood-'
ing. But there can be no excuse for not taking all possible preventa-
tive measures in every community and particularly, the Capital City
which has had its fair share of neglect by those who occupy City
Hall. Let us all make it our civic duty to do our part to ensure that
basic flood prevention measures are in place. We must allow the
successful monumental relief and recovery activities from the Janu-
ary flood think that we can ignore the need for preparation and
Let us not forget, the natural disaster this year cost the
people of Guyana billions of dollars, 60% of our economy and
untold personal loss and discomfort, as well as sickness and

The spoilers


The best outcome would be that the U.S. government, seeing this
danger, puts its own plans to privatise ICANN on hold, while the
170 governments ge 2red in Tunis dodge a confrontation by ap-
pointing some intern .onal commission that spends the next decade
considering alternate, j, more international ways of managing the
internet. Meanwhile the weird little organisation in Marina del Rey
could get on with its j-b, which it has been doing extraordinarily well,
for many years to c( e.
Sometimes the b, ;t solution is no solution at all.

KALAMADEEN: In sad and loving memory
of our dear husband and father, KADIR and
our dear daughter and sister, FARIDA who
departed this life on November 15, 1975 and
October 20,1985 respectively.

These dates come with the deepest regrets
Etched in our memories so we'll never forget
Things have changed in many ways
But one thing changeth never
The memories of the ones we love that has gone forever

It seems like yesterday
When our loved ones were called away
Taken from us was your loving, touch
Which we, your family, miss so much
To hear your voices and see your faces
To sit and talk, to visit places
To be together in the same old way
Would be our greatest wish today
Though this wish can never come through
Our hearts remain filled with love for you.

They live in our memory and are missed by loving wife and
mother Bismilla, daughters and sisters Fazia, Zorina,
Shazida and Yasmin, sons and brothers Farouk, Iqbal and
Hafiz and their families.

By Ravendra Madholall

Malteenoes Sports Club
batsman Steven Jacobs is
the only new face in a 13-
man Guyana squad named
by the national selectors to
oppose Barbados in a first
round Carib Beer four-day
next Friday at the Everest


Sports Club ground.
But surprisingly omitted is
opening batsman Ryan
Ramdass, who only recently
made the West Indies squad to
Sri Lanka. Lennox Cush and
Reon Griffith also failed to get
the selectors' nod
Guyana will also have a
new captain in West Indies
pacer Reon King, who led
Demerara in the Carib Beer
Inter-county series.
Jacobs, who has been very
consistent at all levels, and with
a brilliant century against Carib
Beer champions Berbice at
Bourda in the last round, has
certainly justified his place.
Cush, Ramdass and Griffith
were all members in Guyana's
winning team in the recently
concluded KFC tournament.
Jacobs, who occasionally
bowls off-spinners, told
Chronicle Sport yesterday that
he was very happy being
selected for this level after
some hard work.
"I was very disappointed
not to make the Guyana
Under-19 team earlier this year
and that certainly, gave me the
strength, grit and determination
to work harder on my game
because I want to play cricket
at the highest level.," the
smiling Jacobs said.
He also said that Leon
Johnson was his role model
after the youth captain made
his first-class debut at the age
of 16 and felt that it is a matter
of application and perseverance
for him.
Meanwhile, Ramdass, who
had a torrid run with the bat
after representing the West
Indies earlier this' year' in Sri
Lanka. was overlooked. The

Everest player had a productive
season for Guyana with three
consecutive Carib Beer centuries
earlier this year but this time
could not find a place.
As expected Andre Percival
was included after an impressive
Carib Beer Inter-county
competition as captain for
Berbice in the last series. The
last time Percival played for
Guyana was against the
Windward Islands in Dominica
late last year.
The left-handed middle-
order batsman said yesterday he
was extremely proud to be
recalled in the national team. "I
must first say thanks to my club
(Rose Hall Youth) for supporting
me throughout my career and
also my loving family who are,
always there for me especially
when it comes to cricket. I think
I have been working really hard
on my game for the past couple
months and initially I had my
objective of reappearing on the
national team."
The batting all-rounder who
had played five Test matches
and six one-dayers for the West
Indies youth team said that he
was looking to transfer his best
form to the regional level when
Guyana will host the team
against whom he had made his
highest first-class score (96).
With no place for Ramdass,.
Sewnarine Chattergoqn and
Krishna Arjune will open the
batting followed by Test
batsman Narsingh Deonarine,
Travis Dowlin, who has done
well in the four-day inter-county
competition, and Assad
Reon King who has been
named captain will, no doubt
spearhead the attack which
includes Rose Hall Town fast
bowler Esaun Crandon while the
spin will come from the veteran

pair of Neil McGarrell and
Mahendra Nagamootoo.
Off-spinner Imran Jafarally
is the other option for the
Guyanese who got the nod
ahead of Zaheer Mohamed.
Demnerara Cricket Club
(DCCO wicketkeeper Derwin
Christian has retained his spot
with the gloves while Leon
Johnson is not doing well
enough at any level to be
granted a place in the team after
a promising start to his career.
He failed to live up to
The team is expected to
break camp this, afternoon to
begin their first round on
Friday at Everest.
The 13-man squad reads:
Reon King (captain), Krishna
Arjune, Sewnarine Chattergoon,
Narsingh Deonarine, Travis
Dowlin, Assad Fudadin, Andre
Percival, Steven Jacobs,
Derwin Christian, Mahendra
Nagamootoo, Neil McGarrell,
Imran Jafarally and Esaun
The seven reserve
players are: Ryan Ramdass,
Lennox Cush, Reon Griffith,
Damodar Daesrath, Maxwell
Georgeson, Leon Johnson
and Zaheer Mohamed.

THE International Cricket
Council (ICC) and the Fed-
eration of International
Cricketers Associations
(FICA) have reached an
agreement on resolving the
dispute between the West
Indies Cricket Board (WICB)
and the West Indies Players
Association (WIPA).
The dispute, which saw big
names like Brian Lara, Chris
Gayle, and Ramnaresh Sarwan
pulling out of a tour to Sri
Lanka, has had serious conse-
quences for both the national
team's progress as well as the
infrastructure of the West Indies
Malcolm Speed, the ICC
chief executive, said: "Both
sides have reached a balanced
and pragmatic solution. The
agreement reached between the
ICC and FICA provides the
WICB with certainty in exploit-
ing its commercial rights and

deals with the issues raised by
the players."
Tim May, FICA's chief
executive, commented that
the agreement will lead to a
West Indian selection process
based on merit.
"Both sides have made a
number of concessions in order
to find a solution and from a
player's perspective I think
what has been agreed will now
ensure the best players are rep-
resenting West Indies in interna-
tional cricket."
May also said that WIPA
needs the opportunity to brief
its members before it would
be able to release any details
of the agreement. "The West
Indies players are currently
in Australia and we need to
respect the right of the play-
ers to receive a full briefing
on the agreement that has

EXCUSE this sweeping generalisation, but Caribbean people like
their food. It forms an integral part of our lives. We mourn to it.
celebrate to it. It's part of our history. I was brought up in the
kitchen hanging on my mother's shoulder, helping with the lengthy
task of preparing roti or 'choosing' peas. It helped us form our
unbreakable bond. There I learned the art form of cookery, culinary
creativity. I learned how to improvise. When needs must, mum can
create a nutritious dish out of anything. Give her a single pigeon
pea, a slice of ripe plantain and the crusty wing of a chicken and
she'll knock up a masterpiece. Her kitchen has been home to many.
Part of creativity is learning how to adapt and my mum is one cou-
rageous woman who is not afraid to try new things.

Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Captain Omar
Sherif Khan's mind snapped to attention
when he was granted a scholarship, inclu-
sive of study leave, by the GDF to pursue studies
at the University of Guyana (UG).
A clause of his scholarship agreement stated that he must main-
aima 'B A\ erage' during his course of study to ensure that the tuition

But long before Captain Khan enlisted, began to take orders and
gained military rank, he was a young man without a structured plan
for his life.
At age 19, one thing he was not lacking was the ability to react to
instinct. After receiving job offers from the Guyana Bank for Trade
Industry and the University of Guyana, Captain Khan's reflex ac-
tion landed him in a 13-man cadet platoon of the Standard Officers'

put me into perspective about being a true Guyanese. And I
think that e\er\ oung Guyanese should want to a part of
such a programme." he said
For him, being Guyanese is to be proud and confident of
self and homeland. Such an outlook, he believes, will definitely
spark a conflagration of patriotic passion in the soul of every

The amount of pension you are entitled to depends on two (2) factors:- a
your relevant wage and a percentage factor. The minimum pension is not E`|
considered when calculating your pension rate. ".

Your relevant wage is determined by looking at the last five years you worked
before becoming 60 years old, and using the "best three" (the years showing
the highest total insurable earnings) to find an average weekly or monthly I
salary/wage. .

A person who qualifies for pension is entitled to 40% of his relevant wage for '
the first 750 contributions, and an additional 1% for each complete block of 50
contributions above 750. For example, a person with 1,222 contributions would
be entitled to (40 + 9) = 49%. No person is entitled to more than 60% of his I
relevant wage.

When the pension you are entitled to is calculated, it is then compared to \

less, you are paid the minimum pension. Otherwise, you are paid the calculated
pension. .

Grammar: Work on Adjectives
Reminder: An adjective is a word that modifies a noun
or a pronoun by limiting its meaning. An adjective may
describe by answering one of the following questions:
What kind? Which one? How many? How much?
Examples: How beautiful the singers are!
Those beautiful twins won first prize.
The tall doll is beautiful.
The judge considered her beautiful.
The singers, beautiful in their sight, danced to the steel
pan music.

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

Note the use of comparative adjectives below:
Jackie Jones is a kinder boy than John Bourne.
Leslie is a better problem-solver than Halley.
Sandra is more intelligent than Georgiana.

Note the superlative adjectives:
Kenneth Joseph, is the kindest boy in our class.
Simone is the most intelligent girl in the street.
Godfrey is .the best problem-solver inmthe school's g
denying team. .
Did you find out some for yourselves as you wi
asked? Let's hope so.

Let's get some terms right.
a), The -er and -est are inflectional suffixes.
.b) The more, most,, less,..and least tell about co
prison, they are called by a big name, intensifier
[An intensifier is something that makes another th
intense. To make something intense is to make it b
ter or worse.]

intensifiers are used with some adjectives of two s
tabless and all adjectives of three or more syllabi

:There is another case where different words for
:comparative and the superlative are used. E.g. goi
better, best .
,c) Such comparison that has no pattern is called
regular comparison ..

This week you vill read; but this time you'll do some-
thing different you'll read to note details. This
kind of reading leaves you, with information very
clearly sorted out in your mind about specific things.
[Reading to note details is a little more tedious than
the other forms of reading. What you need to do is
to read texts at your level of reading competency, then
stretch your skills little by little.]

If you follow closely, we assure you that you'll be able
to tell about or describe in detail what you have read
in the passage below.

Some breeds of dogs, like the Newfoundland and the
Labrador, are named after parts of Canada. Of these
two dogs, the Newfoundland is bigger so big that
a child can ride on its back! It is also big enough to
rescue people from drowning, especially as its webbed
feet help it to swim well. Its shaggy coat is also al-
ways black. It loves playing with children, and makes
a good pet and watchdog.

The Labrador is also a big dog, although not as big
as the huge Newfoundland. It can also be black, but
some Labradors are a beautiful golden brown colour.
Whatever the colour, the coat is smooth. It has a tail
like an otter, thick at the base and covered with long
hair. Because it is an intelligent dog, it is still used for,
hunting, especially to find and retrieve game. It is par-
ticularly good at fetching waterfowl, as it is an excel-
lent swimmer, even when the water temperature is be-
low zero. In fact, fishermen have used it to carry mes-
sages between ships!

your understanding:
a).. Get a book on dogs with names and pictures. [If
you can.]
b). Find a world map positioned at the United King-
dom, North America, and Canada.
c) Use the scanning technique to scan the passage for
the names of all the dogs and write them down in a
list on paper.
2. Really read the passage. Go it over again, this time
add on to the list a description of each dog along with
its country of origin.
3. Read over the passage. This time read one para-
graph at a time. And looking at your pictures, point
out exactly which specific dog is being described.
How well does the description fit?
4. Check and revise each of your choices. By the end
of your reading you should have each dog's picture,
and the name of its country of origin alongside a de-
6. There are many other breeds of dogs named after
different places in the world. You might like to look
at the pictures of other dogs and see where you can
place them on a world map.

the comparative degree; if comparing more than
two use the superlative.

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to our Mathematics columns. You
can further promote understanding by ques-
tioning the ideas you note when you read.
You can also link idea with ones that you
know already. Keep on using your shoe boxes
of notes more creatively! Love you.

Solution: Division
1.1.2 + 4/5 = 15
2.64 + 8/9=72-
3.20 + 5/7 = 28
4. 300 + 15/18 =360
5.456 + 2 2/5= 190
6.21/10 + 7/15 = 4 V2
7. 648 + 6/35 = 108X35 = 3780

Mixed Number in lowest Terms and Whole
8.5 1/4 + 7/8 = 6
9.251/2 + 32/5 = 7 V2
10.-52 + 23/5 = 20
11.68 + 95/7=7
12.68 + 12/9 = 612/11 =56
13. 33/5 + 2 7/10 =4/3 = 1 1/3

Which of these statements are true? Which
statements are false?

1.22/11 + 19/11 = 11/5

3.5 3/5 + 24/5 > 5
4.17/9 22/3 < 1V2
5.45/7 + 3 1/18 < 2

Using Inverse Operations
Look at these examples below:

3/7 X 7/9 = 1/3
3/7 + 7/9 = 27/49
1/3 + 7/9 = 3/7
1/3 X 7/9 = 7/27
3/7 + 1/3 = 9/7
7/9 + 3/7 = 49/27
Check the lines once more to understand them

Let's get rolling again!
3/7 X 7/9
= 3X7
= 1/3

3/7 + 7/9
= 3X9
7 X7
= 27/49

1/3 + 3/7
= 1X7
= 7/9

1/3 X 7/9
= 1 X7
= 7/27.

3/7 + 1/3
= 3X3
7 X 1
= 9/7

7/9 + 3/7
= 7X7
9 X3
= 49/27

Look at this other reasoning.

7/8 X 4/9 = 7/18
7/18 + 4/9 = 7/8
7/18 + 7/8 = 4/9

Let's work:
7/8 X 4/9
= 7X4
= 7/18

7/18 + 4/9
= 7X9
= 7/8

And 7/18 7/8
= 7X8
18 X7

Find these out:
12.4/9 X 3/11 4. 7 3/5 X 3/5
2. 6 3/10 X 5/9 5. 3/11 24/9
3. 7 7/8 X 4/9 6. 3% X 8

Find these out:
1. Some number multiplied by 4/9 equals
2. Some number multiplied by 5/22
equals 1.
3. Some number divided by 6/7 equals
4. 3 6/7 multiplied by some number
equals 99/35.

A peek at Mixed Operations
Look at this rule: When there are brack-
ets, work the brackets first.

(6 4 + 1 7/8) X 2 114
= ( 25X2 .X 21/4
41 X15-3
=10/3 X 2 1/4
= 410 X9
9 X 42
= 15/2
= 71/V2
This can also be done
614 + 17/8 X 21,4
= 25 X 8 X 9
4 X 15 X4
= 15/2 =71/2

Sitting at the delightful
Jerries Caf6 on Camp Street as
dusk falls, one sees today's
young Guyanese going by or
1 entering the caf6 after leaving
their colleges and afternoon
classes. Many beautiful young
women and men of many races
and racial mixtures. Looking at
this new generation of
Guyanese, with their bags slung
across their chests, and some-
times a few outstanding cool
fashion tropical styles like
striped skirts, shirts, moccasins
.-': etc. similar to their counterparts
in Nice,. Copenhagen,
Amsterdam, Stockholm,
Barcelona, Roire and Milan, one
recognizes that this Camp Street
scene with its green and red roof
wooden mansions, its indigo-
violet sky etc., is as beautiful as
it was six decades ago.
But if you really knew that
part of Camp Street in 1965 or
a decade before or after, you
would know something truly vi-
brant is missing from this scene
today. Something which the
faces of the youths walking by
subconsciously seem to sus-
al (from pect. Next to Jerries today is
r Jean perfectly useful, yet abandoned
S classic cinema strikes one as
ra Turf odd if one knew it a decade be-
fore or after 1965. Those youths
today if they walked by the
ost-Inde- Plaza cinema back then, would
nd racial have immediately stopped to
igotries, digest the poster gallery of in-
gration. telligent and influential interna-
ntly lead tional films taken from equally
of pre- intelligent and compelling nov-

els, plays, and screen plays.
The loss of such daily pub-
lic places like cinemas with in-
telligent high quality film dra-
mas, several book stores with
international classic and modem
writers, books on modern art,
films, and instrumental music
etc., has reduced the everyday
out of school emphasis on
proper yet exciting education,
which previous generations of
Guyanese had in abundance.
Many of our excellent and later
well known writers, poets and
artists did not have to go abroad
to study to become the profes-
sionals they later became.
Today's lack if such public
places which once provided se-
rious cultural development for
Guyanese has reduced
Guyana's capital from the nor-
mal progressive modern
civilised city it had developed
into until the 1970's.
With out this focus on con-
tinuous modern cultural influ-
ences via constant exposure to
intelligent films, literature, mu-
sic and art, our standards drop
and a crude fickle style if every-
day behaviour fed by unpro-
ductive interests develop, as is
evident today.
This brings us to the vital
necessity of keeping Guyanese

nostalgic culture alive, the ben-
efits of which incidentally,
Guyanese who immigrate to nu-
merous foreign cities continue to
enjoy over there. One popular
new method of keeping such
public areas providing high cul-
tural values, is to have
neighbourhood developments,
where in one spacious building
or mall proper, cinemas with in-
tellectual films exist, close by to
enjoyable cafes, huge book-
stores, music stores, fashion
boutiques, art galleries of qual-
ity etc.
Such civic areas keep many
normal cities alive day and
night, since no one is anxious to
visit or be seen in a ghost town
after dusk falls. Yet, this idea of
a sprawling modem civic build-
ing with various educational yet
entertaining commercial sections
existed for decades in
Georgetown as Bookers Univer-
sal (now Guyana Stores) and
W.M. Fogarty's Ltd. Bookers
Universal was an amazing and
wonderful store whose quality
was never again equalled in
Guyana after it was
nationalised. If you wanted the
best tropical fashions, art sup-
plies, classical and modern lit-
erature among numerous other
items, Bookers beckoned. Book-

in their cool, well-tapered pink,
yellow and red etc. shirts,
Banlon jerseys etc., continental
slacks and light Italian loafers,
made a scene far more modem
and progressive in appearance
and mentality than moat seen
locally today. The reasons why
groups of intelligent and cre-

ative young and older Guyanese
men and women created a fash-
ion scene in and around Book-
ers Universal in past decades, is
because Bookers Universal
combined education and plea-
sure with its thousands of clas-
sic and modern literary soft
cover works right beside its

That practical example of
Guyanese Nostalgic Culture al-
lows us to see that the beauti-
ful local girls -who spun around
on Bookers snack bar stools
with ice cold Limericky pop
drink in one hand and a menthol
local Alaska cigarette in the

decorated the stores windows,
rows of metal racks and shelves

lectual magazines like Encoun-

Times Literary Supplement, the
Observer, Play Boy, etc. The
Bookers book section staff of
young trendy Guyanese girls
with boyish beatnik haircuts
knew these works well and even
recommended them to their
young sporty colleagues who
frequented the snack bar-book
What is now considered
Guyanese Nostalgic Culture
was from four decades ago an
everyday local culture com-
prises both the best imported
international products and excel-
lent local products. Back then,
Guyanese tailors and dressmak-
ers were popular as individual
or small business companies
providing stunningly stylish
well structured light tropical
men's and women's fashions
worn daily everywhere, but es-
pecially seen on the down-town
side walks outside and between

Bookers and Fogarty's, and on
holidays and Sunday afternoons
on the seawalls.
Where a caf6 now stands on
Fogarty's ground floor was a huge
bookstore packed with the highest
quality international literature man-

aged by a Czechoslovakian lady
married to an Afro-Guyanese pro-
fessional. The second floor sold
Tropical French boat-neck jerseys,
British Banlon jerseys, Italian and
Spanish canvas espadrilles etc.
Generally, crowds created

by cinema going and window
shopping brought business to
other establishments such as
restaurants and cafes, and
Georgetown and its environs
was a vibrant exciting place
to live day and night.

United Nations

Convention to Combat



THIS week, we will look at
the United Nations Conven-
tion to combat Desertifica-
lion (ULNCCD) and what it
means to us as Guyanese.
What is Desertification/
Land Degradation?
Desertification is the deg-
radation of land in arid, semi-
arid and dry sub-humid areas
resulting from various factors,
including climatic variations
and human activities.
Land degradation is de-
fined as the reduction or.loss of
the biological or economic pro-
ductivity of dry lands.
The Global Incidence of

ference on Environment ar.d De-
velopment (UNCED) con-' ened
in the Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
the question of how to deal % ith
issues of land degradation s'as
on the agenda, since it was still
of serious concern to most coun-
tries of the world. The confer-
ence, therefore, requested the
UN General Assembly to pre-
pare by June 1994, a Conven-
tion to Combat Desertification.
As a result, the UNCCD came
into force in December 1996.
Guyana became a Party to the
Convention upon its ratification
on 24 September, 1997.

collector's item. It was recorded at Blue Wave Studios in St.
Phillips, Barbados.
Among the songs on Rudy's new album is 'Hello Africa'

'This album is geared towards people who love
good music... Good music used to be something
that people loved, and sometimes when people
hear a particular song and fall in love with it...
because they like the song they might fall in
love with the artiste and start collecting all of
his albums.' Rudy Grant
In an interview with the Sunday Chronicle, the artiste said
the album was composed with music lovers in mind, and is
available only at Le Meredien Pegasus Gift Shop. at a cost of

received great assistance from its producers, big brother E.d;

Jackie Robinson, a lead singer for the Pioneers.Band, who
became famous with tunes such as 'Feel the rhythm of you
and I' and 'Long shot kick de bucket', has done back-up sing-
ing on the 'Peace and Love' album.
Grant said although most of the songs are not originals, but
rather his versions of some sweet love songs, he is proud of
his new release and considers it a showpiece.
"I've done the best work and I've put it out there..: It' a

DENTISTS find that X-
ray examinations are
essential to help diag-
nose and treat conditions that
can enhance the patient's
oral or general health. X-rays
help the dentist visualise dis-
eases of-the teeth and sur-
rounding tissue that cannot
be seen with a simple oral
examination. In addition,
they help to find and treat
dental problems early in
their development, which can
potentially save you money,
unnecessary discomfort and
maybe even save your life. X-
rays detect problems such as

'The experts of radiology
I advise dentists not use
X-rays routinely as part of pe-

Your dentist has the profes-

you need to have radiographs

what kind and how often. This
decision is made after your

in dentistry over the years have

safety, the effects of radiation

The first are intraoral, taken
with the film held inside the

and occlusal radiographs. The
second are extra oral, taken with
the film placed outside the
Bitewing x-rays show the
crowns of the upper and lower
teeth on one film. They are es-
pecially useful for showing de-
cay between the teeth and bone
loss in the early stages of gum
disease. Periapical radiographs
show the entire tooth, including
the tips of roots and some of
the surrounding tissues. Films of
this type can show impacted
teeth (those that are blocked
from erupting) or problems such
as root fractures or the effects
of deep decay on bone.

0cclusal radiographs are
used to show the roof
or the floor of the mouth. They
are taken to help to determine
the position of impacted teeth,
cysts, tumours or salivary
stones. In many cases, if discov-
ered early, teeth can be guided

Extra oral x-rays show
large lateral areas of the
two jaws. They are some-
times used for persons who

of the jaws, and other
structures. Cephalometric
X-rays show all the bone of
the face and skull.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE, November 20, 2005 XVII


THURSDAY came around. She got up and
dressed very quietly to avoid waking
Charles, who would have asked why she was
getting ready so early. Then she paced up
and down, or stationed herself at the win-
dow to look put over the square. The dawn
light was winding its way between the mar-
ket pillars, and in the pale glow of the sun-
rise you could read the chemist's name in
block capitals above the closed shutters of
his shop.

When the clock said quarter past seven she
went across to the Golden Lion. Art6mise came
down yawning to let her in, and raked out a few
embers for Madame. Then Emma was left alone
in the kitchen. From time to time she strolled
outside, where Hivert was harnessing the horses
in leisurely fashion, listening the while to Ma-
dame Lefrangois, who was thrusting her night-
capped head out of a little window to give him
orders, in a long rigmarole that would have be-
wildered a lesser man. Emma tapped the shoes
on the paving-stones.
At last, when he had gulped down his soup,
shrugged himself into his driving-coat, lit his
pipe and grabbed hold of his whip, he clambered
up and settled himself serenely on his box.

The Hirondelle moved off at a gentle trot,
stopping several times in the first two miles to
pick up passengers, who stood looking out for
it at their garden gates by the side of the road.
Those who had booked seats to go and hammer
on their doors, while the wind whistled in
through the cracked blinds of the carriage.

Gradually the four rows of seats filled up, the
coach went bowling along, orchards of apple-
. trees sped by, and ahead the road ran on between
long ditches of stagnant water that seemed to
meet in the far distance.

Emma knew every inch of the way. After a
stretch of meadowland came a signpost, an elm-
tree, then a barn or navvy's hut. Sometimes she
shut her eyes for a while to give herself a sur-
prise. But she always retained an exact aware-
ness of the distance still to go.

1. Just how is the countryside described?
Tell it to someone who has an interest.
2. What is it that you particularly like about
the writing?

If you write a group of sentences like the one
below, would you call it a paragraph? Observe
it for yourself, and tell the answer to a friend.

The capital city of Guyana is Georgetown.
Near the water-edge the noonday sun appears al-
most directly overhead much of the time.
Bobby Galloway is the sixteenth director of the
Health Project and a Catholic. When he is hun-

gry on a hot day, he walks around the comer of
George Street and gets himself a bowl of hot
eddo soup. Computers are faster today than fif-
teen years ago.

What do you think about the other group
of sentences below? Discuss it with a friend.

Natural disaster constantly threatened the
early settlers on the Mainland. In the early
months of the year heavy winds and accompa-
nying rains imperiled the homesteader, his fam-
ily, and his livestock. Mid-year brought heavier
winds and rains, and within the August-Septem-
ber period the food crops were at the mercy of
clouds of insects. Then, when the grass became
brown in October it was then that the grassland
fires became a fearsome possibility. 'But all the
year round, a debilitating disease was the grav-
est threat to the security of settled families.

Now, try getting the following paragraph rec-
tified. Which sentences do not give informa-
tion that fit the flow of ideas expressed in the
rest of the selection?

(1) Baby-sitting is the easiest for me when
the family that hires me has only one child. (2)
This is especially true when that one child sleeps
through the night after going to bed early. (3)
Few people hire baby-sitters in our
neighbourhood. (4) On the other hand, my
worst moments have come when trying to en-
tertain a family of six children. (5) Their fa-
ther was a lawyer. (6) Usually I settle for a
busy-but-uneventful evening with two or three
children of various ages and assorted sizes. (7)
Before I became a baby-sitter, I was a soft drink

Let's See How Sentences Fit Together

Here are some paragraph structures to

Model 1
Salt is a common thing to you. It is one of
the cheapest items that mothers buy. But long
ago it was as scarce and costly as gold, and far
more important. Everyone has to have salt. No
one could live very long without it. Animals
need it, too.

If you read the paragraph again maybe you'll
see exactly how the sentences hinge together.
Each sentence tells something about the same
subject salt. Each sentence tells about a par-
ticular characteristic of salt. You can come to
the conclusion therefore that the sentences in
a paragraph may fit together simply by tell-
ing about the same subject.

Model 2.

Six days after he arrived in town his ani-
mal was struck by the Santa Street minibus
and seriously injured. Two days later the
animal passed away, most likely of internal
injuries, on the corner of Sandra and
Thornhill streets. The huge dog sank to the

pavement, fell on the traveller's leg,
shrieked, and died. When the Southerner
got his leg free, he got up and limped into
the Internet Caf6 on the corner and made
connection overseas. He contacted his
cousin in Japan. The connection cost him
a lot of money, which he paid the attendant
as if he were in the habit of contacting his
cousin every day.
Many stories you read make their paragraphs
fit together because their sentences tell what
happened in some sort of sequence. Each sen-
tence told a little bit more about what happened.
You may now come to the conclusion that the
sentences in a paragraph fit together when
as a group they relate a single sequence of

Model 3.

The following paragraph below is similar to
the sequence-of-events paragraph above. Read
and judge for yourself.
Captured insects can be kept in an insect cage.
You can make a screened cage from a 17-inch
length of fine screening, a coffee can lid, and a
flowerpot. Wind the screening into a roll and,
staple or sew the edges so that it will retain the
shape of a cylinder about the diameter of the
coffee-can lid. Place the lid on top of the cyl-
inder. The bottom of the cylinder may be placed
in a flowerpot in which grass and other small
plants are growing.

Just as how each sentence in the sequence-
of-events paragraph tells a little bit more about
the same event, each sentence in the paragraph
above explains a little bit more about the same
process. It is the kind of paragraph you con-
struct to tell how to make things like doughnuts
and dresses.

You can now say that the sentences in a
paragraph fit together when each explains
part of the same process, step by step.

Model 4.

Read the paragraph and try to understand how
each sentence communicates the same amount
and the same kind of information.
Boys and girls were dressed like small
copies of their parents. Up to the age of
five or six years both boys and girls wore
long dresses that touched the ground.
These dresses, and those of the older girls,
were tight at the waist and had full, gathered
skirts. Frequently they wore aprons over
their dresses. The older boys wore doublets
or jerkins (tight-fitting jackets), and knee
breeches, just like their fathers. The older
girls sometimes wore shawls, and both boys
and girls wore cloaks (long capes) in cold
Here is what you should conclude about
the above paragraph. Sentences in a para-
graph fit together when a series of fol-
low-up sentences supply the details nec-
essary to make you see how true a gen-
eral statement is.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 20,, 2005


Sh1 -s* ttit

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today we'll look at
how weather conditions affect our lives. You will also get a
response from last week's topic "What is Weather?"

ing in these areas must be careful when there are floods. They
'have to protect their valuables and livestock.
There are heavy winds, which may also develop into hurricanes.
Hurricanes are not experienced in Guyana, but in other countries,
but we must consider our lives saved.
A response from last week's topic "What is Weather?".
Look at the pictures. What are the children doing? The chil-
dren are walking with coats on. What kind of day is it in picture
A? It is a rainy day in picture A. What are the people doing in
picture B? The people are enjoying a windy day in picture B.
How would you describe the day? The day is a cool and windy.
Why are the leaves swaying in picture B? The leaves are swaying
because of the heavy winds. What is happening to the towels the
men have over their heads? The towels are blowing up the wind
is heavy. Look through the window of your home or where ever
you are and describe the day. Today is a rainy day with dark clouds
in the sky along with the flashes of the lighting.

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. Sometimes 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 sunny.

The weather conditions and the way it affect our lives.
Look at the photo above, What kind of day -do you think it
would be? If you had to go to school or work what would have
you done? Do you think it would be wise to go out and play in
the yard or go and play basketball with your friends, when you
see these weather conditions? Would you advise mommy to do
the laundry on a day like this? Is it wise for a pilot to fly under
these weather conditions? What would you tell a fisherman who
is going out to sea? The weather affects the things we do from one
day to another.
If one expects rain, he or she should walk with a raincoat or
umbrella. The pilot or captain should not fly or sail their vessel in
a, heavy storm or rainfall, if it is predicted. Heavy rainfalls may
cause flooding especially in low-lying areas of Guyana. People liv-

processed tomato industry
some $35 million annually
according to Biotechnology

4. improvement of
food product quality such as
seedless grapes, crispy car-
rots and celery, caffeine -free
coffee and tea, improved
flavour tomatoes, "tearless"

onions (onions that do not
produce large quantities of
allicin, the chemical respon-
sible for teary eyes when
peeling/cutting onions
5. better quality raw

try. For example New
Zealand scientists have
biotechnologically increased
the content of the milk pro-
tein, casein, an essential
cheese-making protein by 13
per cent, thus enhancing the

cheese-making process
6. general improvement
of food processing
7. production of low
calorie sweeteners such as
fructans, for the diet-conscious
or obesity-conscious
8. improvement of
food safety. For example,
GM corn with the bacte-
rial insect toxin gene called
Bt Corn, have been found
to have greatly reduced
content of a fungal poison

called fumonisin. This
compound, belonging to a
large group of fungal poi-
sons called mycotoxins,
has been linked to throat
cancer in humans who
consume maize contami-
nated by the toxin accord-
ing to scientific reports
published by the Interna-
tional Agency for Research
on Cancer (IARC) based in
Lyon, France.
9. production of foods

without allergens.
10. production of foods with non-nutritive active
components. For example, excessive consumption of
foods with high cholesterol content has now been clearly
linked to the development of heart disease (according to
studies in the journals Current Opinion in Lipidology
2002, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2003, and
Journal of Nutrition published by the American Society
for Nutritional Sciences 2004). However, plant com-
pounds similar to cholesterol, phytosterols and
phytostanols, have now been added to processed foods
such as margarines to help consumers reduce elevated
cholesterol levels according to reviews in the journal
Trends in Food Science and Technology published two
years ago.
11. improving food fermentors
12. production of food additives
13. health-related mineral nutrient-enrichment of foods.
A recent example is the genetic engineering of the gene for
accumulation of the element selenium in the form of an amino
acid derivative called Se-methylselenocysteine according to
research published last year in the online journal BioMed Cen-
tral Plant Biology.
It is important to note that selenium, which is found reason-
able quantities in garlic and broccoli, "plays a significant role in
reducing the incidence of lung cancer, colorectal cancer and pros-
tate cancer in humans."

the air, water and land.
Local communities play an
important role since they are the
true "managers" of the ecosys-
tems in which they live and have
an impact on.
While governments must
provide leadership, all sectors of
society should be involved.
In a time when economics
is a dominant force, .it is es-
pecially important for the pri-
vate sector to participate in
sustainable land management.

Organizations should also
help to promote action and
provide information on what
needs to be done.
What is the Guyana "Na-
tional Capacity Self Assess-
ment" (NCSA)?
It is an analysis of
a) Guyana's ability to meet its
obligations under the Rio Con-
ventions, b) possible benefits
from synergistic approach to
development, and c) priority
benefits for national capacity
It is being under-
taken by the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA)
Guyana over the period July
2005 to December 2006, with
assistance from the Global
Environment Facility (GEPF),
and in collaboration with
the United Nations Develop-
ment Programme (UNDP),

LET us begin today with the
type of care that you can of-
fer your pet in an eventual-
ity that demands urgent and
immediate attention even
before you contact your vet-
There are several situations
that necessitate quick action on
your part in order to prevent
your pet dying. The ones that


spring to mind and those which
confront veterinarians are: elec-
tric shocks, heat, strokes, ob-
structed air passages, physical
traumas to the head (sometimes
resulting in unconsciousness), a
prolonged epileptic attack, poi-
soning, bums, suffocations (by
drowning or inhalation of smoke/
toxic gases), and snake/insect
bites. We will deal with all these


problems during the next few
The greatest emergency, ob-
viously, is the one that causes
the heart-beat and breathing to
be severely compromised or to
stop altogether. Your action at
home, therefore, is directed to-
wards reinstating breathing and
the cardiac function. This.will
be done by artificial respiration


and heart massage.
The dog or cat that is show-
ing severe signs of respiratory
distress is usually semi-con-
scious and even comatose. Of-
ten, in these circumstances, the
heart will also not be function-
ing well. In fact, there might

pushing the air out of the lung.
On release, the chest will then
expand again, thus sucking air
back into the lung. The tech-
nique is simple:
i. Check for any blockage in
the nostrils/mouth.
ii. Wipe away any accumu-
lated discharge from the nostrils

that you may have-to tackle
both problems simultaneously.,
There are to procedures
that you can undertake within
the context of Artificial Respi-
ration. Firstly, you can use the
method of Chest Compression.
This means that you will be ex-
erting a manual force to the
chest. In so doing, you will be

and mouth.
iii. Place the dog/cat on its
side (on an even surface), pref-,
erably with the left side up.
(right side down)
iv. Place the palm of your
hand (if it is a big dog you may
have to use both palms) on the
animal's chest and press down
quickly. Then release. Carry out
this maneuver every 3-5 sec-

onds. Continue until the dog be-
gins to breathe rhythmically on
its own.
Secondly, you may wish to
carry out the mouth-to-nose
i. Clear away any secretions
that may be present around the nos-
trik and mouth with a clean issue
If you are en, fastdious. you mal
\1ish to u.e a disinfectant.
ii.Pull the dog's/cat' tongue
forward and hold the animal's
mouth closed with 5our hand
iii Form a cup %tih y'our
other hand and place it around
the nose of the animal and blov
into the nostrils of the arumnl
steadily. for about three secondss
Your cupped hand is actually ,
fornun,2 a connecting rube tc-
tv.een (iout mouth and tile
doe' cat' n,.>rrll. Of c:,ur~c if
you are not' scornful", you
may wish'to place your mouth
over the animal's nose directly.
iv. The air that you blow
into the lung will cause the chest
to. expand. When you stop the
elasticity of me che st % ill cause
it to go back to its original-po-
sition and force the air out.
v. This action will be con-
tinued until the dog begins to
breathe on its own.
I hope that this necessity never
arises; but if it does, please don't
be squeamish. It is your compan-
ion animal's life that is at stake. Of
course, even while you are carry-
ing out this exercise, and before the
