THREE persons were reportedly injured, one of them so
serious as to require emergency surgery, following a
grenade-throwing incident mid-afternoon yesterday at a
city restaurant.
The incident reportedly occurred around 14:00hrs at a
Chinese restaurant on the corner of Charles and Sussex

AS THE debate over the
merits and demerits of
corporal punishment picks up
steam, some 30 children
drawn from primary and
secondary schools
countrywide will be given the
opportunity to have their say
on the matter when a two-day
workshop convenes here mid
next month at Le Meridien

Pegasus HoteL
The June 16-17. caucus,
which is not as novel as it
sounds and is expected to see as
many as 150 participants, is
being convened by the National
Commission on the Rights of the
Child (NCRC) headed by First
Lady Varshnie Jagdeo. It will
have as its focus the premise of
'Discipline Without Beating'.
The whole purpose to the
exercise, the First Lady said at

a press briefing yesterday, is "to
explore alternatives to corporal
punishment in the homes and
schools, as well as reflect on the
escalating violence in society and
consider ways such violence can
be reduced."
Noting that her
organisation which she was
at pains to explain was in no
way affiliated to the Ministry
of Human Services and
Social Security where it is
currently housed, but an
autonomous body was
willing to work with all
relevant agencies so as to
engender change, Ms. Jagdeo
said that similar workshops
are being planned for the
townships of New Amsterdam
and Anna Regina, in the
counties of Berbice and
Essequibo respectively, and at
Linden, Mabaruma and
Bartica in Regions Ten

(Upper DemerVra/Berbice),
One (Barima/Waini) and
Seven (Cauyni/Mazaruni)
As to what role the children
are expected to play in deciding
whether corporal punishment
should be abolished or not, Ms
Jagdeo said: "As always, we
want to hear from the children.
We want to know how they feel
about being beaten, and to see
what they propose as
alternatives "
According to Chief
Education Officer (CEO), Mr.
Ed Caesar, who is a member
of the Commission and was at
the briefing, which was held
at the National
Communications Network

corporal punishment."
And, with reference to the
ongoing exchange the subject
has engendered since it was first
brought to the public's attention
when, on at least two occasions,
children were severely-
traumatised as a result of severe
beatings at the hands of their
teachers, Dr Brain O'Toole who
is Director of School of the
Nations, one of the country's
more prominent private schools,
commented on the direction the
argument has since taken.
"It's been interesting..... to
note how emotional this debate
has become. Clearly, people feel
extremely strongly about it," Dr
O'Toole said, adding that "there
is a great deal of passion in the
way people are presenting their
ideas, but.... very little evidence
of people really listening and
trying to understand the point
of somebody else."
Referring to an article
yesterday in the 'Letters'
column of one of the daily
newspapers which suggests that
adults shouldn't listen to
children, O'Toole said: "That's
exactly contradictory to what
the whole UN (United Nations)

movement is espousing right
across the world. So I think this
is an attempt to really redress
some of the imbalance and to
listen to one another and to see
if out of this discussion we can
come up with some ideas about
how we should move forward."
According to the UN
Convention on the Rights of the
Child, out of which the idea of
having such a workshop was
born and to which Guyana is a
signatory, "the act of inflicting
corporal punishment constitutes
an act of violence against
Article 28:2 of the
Convention, said to have
specific bearing on what
transpires at schools, clearly
states "that all appropriate
measures should be taken to
ensure that school discipline
should be administered in a
manner consistent with a child's
human dignity."
As the First Lady clearly
said in her statement, the
.Convention, and by association
the NCRC, is neither against
discipline nor is it a liberation
"It dpes not remove the

right of parents to discipline
children, and it's not challenging
parental authority,". she
The challenge to the nation,
therefore, she said, was to
explore how best "we can

Clearly amenable to the
whole notion of dialogue and
consultation in dealing with
such delicate matters, O'Toole
said: "I think the idea of this
workshop is to really open up
a dialogue and to explore
alternatives, and not... take

and say this is what should
Rather, he suggests
taking a closer look at some
of the very situations to

treated for dehydration, the

is mentioned.

Economists rank AIDS, hunger

as world's worst worries '

By Per Bech Thomsen

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) -
The fight against HIV/AIDS
and malaria, eradicating hun-
ger and promoting free trade
are the most urgent problems
on the planet, much more
pressing than global warming,
a panel of top economists has
Eight economists, including
a number of Nobel Prize win-
ners, yesterday.wrapped up the
week-long Copenhagen Consen-
sus conference, at which they
were asked to prioritise how to
spend an imaginary extra $50
billion to improve the world.
The panel gave the highest
priority and $27 billion to com-
bating HIV/AIDS because of its
humanitarian urgency, in particu-
lar in Africa.

"Although costs are consid-
erable, they are tiny in relation to
what can be gained," the group said
in a statement. The AIDS virus

bally and has killed more than 25

second most important prob-
lem and the panel wanted to
spend $12 billion to fight mal-

by Bjorn Lomborg, the Danish
author of 'The Skeptical Envi-
ronmentalist' and director of

The panel was faced with 10
challenges: Climate change, dis-

eases, hunger, migration, sani-
tation, corruption, trade barri-
ers, education, conflicts and fi-
nancial instability.
It ranked 17 solutions to
seven of the challenges find-
ing there was insufficient infor-
mation on the other three prob-
lems. However, it decided to as-
sign money only to the four
most urgent issues.
"That encapsulates the big
dilemma. Everyone would love
to address all the problems if
there was enough money. But
as long money is a scarce re-
source, we have to focus on
where should we do most good
first," Lomborg told a news

(Reuters) Suspected al

nine Saudis and seven for-

of Khobar yesterday before
holding up with hostages in a
housing compound.
Saudi forces stormed the

city, but the battle was raging on
and the militants were still hold-

said. A senior Saudi officer was
Many civilians were evacu-

pound was cordoned off after the
attack, the second in less than a
month to target Saudi's vital oil
industry and Westerners who
form a large part of its workforce.
Saudi Arabia is the world's
largest crude exporter and oil
markets have been on edge over
the possibility of a militant
strike that would disrupt sup-

"I can confirm the death of

A statement purportedly
from Saudi-born Osama bin
Laden's al Qaeda network was
posted on Islamist Internet sites
claiming responsibility for the
attack, the third on foreigners in
less than a month in the birth-
place of Islami.
Al Qaeda, blamed for the
September 2001 attacks on U.S.
cities, has vowed to destabilise
the U.S.-allied Saudi kingdom.
The U.S. Embassy reiterated
a call to its citizens to leave the
kingdom after the attack.
An employee at the Oasis
compound said the militants,
wearing military uniforms, had
asked residents to show their
identity cards to find out their
He said he saw six to seven
bodies and that the militants had
used hand grenades in the attack.
"(The militants) went
around asking people if they
were Christian or Muslims. They
got hold of an uncle of a friend
and asked him to get his resi-
dence permit, but he fled," said
the employee, who declined to
be identified.
Saudi state television
showed footage of a man with
Western features, slumped in his.
car, apparently shot dead. It also
showed a charred car and a third
blood-spattered vehicle.
The attackers opened fire at
the Al-Khobar Petroleum Cen-
ter building, believed to house
offices of major Western oil
firms, before storming into com-
pounds housing oil services of-
fices and homes of employees,
the security sources said.
Witnesses said the attackers
drove cars with military mark-
ings into the Apicorp complex
and opened fire. An Egyptian
boy was killed when a school bus

"This is clearly targeting the
oil sector," said a senior Western
executive in the capital Riyadh.

strategies to topple the royal fam-
Earlier this month, militants
killed five foreigners in an attack

Muqrin claimed responsibil-
ity for the attack and vowed
more in Saudi Arabia and other
Muslim states.
A German was shot dead this
month in a shopping district in
eastern Riyadh.
Saudi security forces have
arrested or gunned down at least
eight of the country's 26 most
wanted militants, but defiance of
the crackdown has raised ques-
tions about security.
De facto ruler Crown Prince

More officials charged in

Miami as Aristide prepares to

MIAMI, FL,: A former na-
tional Police Chief of Haiti,
Jean Nesly Lucien, and
former the country's anti-
drug chief Evintz Brillant,
have joined two others facing
drug smuggling charges in
U.S. drug agents, according
to the Miami Herald, arrested
Lucien Wednesday at his home
in Miami's Little Haiti. Brillant
was arrested in Port-au-Prince,
Haiti, and transported to Miami.
Both were charged by federal
prosecutors on Thursday.
The two join two other
Haitian officials who have been
arrested since former President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide was
ousted in January.
Lucien and Brillant both
made appearances in court

paid tens of thousands of dol-
lars to allow shipments of co-
caine to move through Haiti to

The affidavits said four con-

two men. Lucien and Brillant
join two other former officials,
Rudy Therassan, a former com-
mander of an investigations unit
of the Haitian National Police

and Oriel Jean, the security
chief of former President Jean-
Bertrand Aristide, who both
face similar charges.
But as ousted President
Jean Bertrand Aristide prepares
to leave Jamaica for South Af-

admitted they have no evidence

drug smuggling ring.
"I can now confirm that he
will depart Jamaica for South

Medley, who served as
Aristide's spokesman during the
11 weeks the former Haitian
leader spent in Jamaica, was
quoted as saying.
Medley said travel arrange-

Thursday but declined to say
whether Aristide, his family and
their bodyguards would travel
by private charter or commer-

concerns about his flight ar-
rangements, so I would not

Medley said. -

As many as 1,000 of the dead
were in the southeastern Haitian

by the floods, officials say. The
town of several thousand people is
only about 25 miles southeast of
the capital, but roads were dam-
aged by the torrents of mud and
water that swept down hillsides
five days ago.
"The helicopters are a very
short-term fix for addressing im-

that road repairs would have to

Abducted child in

Jamaica located by

U.S. diplomatic security

KINGSTON, Jamaica: Acting on a tip-off, agents from the
U.S. Bureau of Diplomatic Security located an abducted
Minnesota child in Jamaica and reunited the child with its
parent Friday.
A U.S. State Department notice Friday night revealed that
U.S. authorities found the child, whose gender was not revealed,
with its non-custodial father, after a Jamaican teacher contacted
consular officers at the U.S. Embassy in Kingston. The teacher
had apparently discovered a missing children' s alert for the child
on the web site of the National Center for Missing and Exploited
Authorities also found the father, whose name was with-
held, was wanted on a felony warrant by the Minneapolis
Police Department on parental kidnapping charges. He
turned himself into the Jamaican National Police on Thurs-
day and was Friday also flown to the U.S. to face felony
parental abduction charges.

A US-led multinational
force, sent to the impoverished
country three months ago to
help restore order after former
President Jean-Bertrand
Aristide was ousted by a bloody
revolt, has turned to relief work
after the worst natural disaster
to hit Haiti in a decade.
Tons of food and supplies
were delivered to Mapou in pre-
vious days arid most of
yesterday's flights focused on
delivering relief supplies to other
hard-hit towns Fond Verettes,
where more than 160 people
died, and another small town in
the southeast, Thiotte.
In Fond Verettes alone,
some 8,500 people needed food,
most of them made homeless by
the disaster, said Inigo Alvarez,
a spokesman in Haiti for the
World Food Program.
He added that aid workers
were also looking for more pock-
ets of disaster. "We are worried
there are small isolated areas
that have not been reached,"
Alvarez said.
The death toll in Haiti
stood at about 1,800, while
about 350 people were killed in
the Dominican Republic, most

in the border town of Jimani.
Aid workers and officials have
said the toll could rise as more
bodies are found in the mud and

The World Food
Programme was already running
a programme to feed some
140,000 people after months of
civil unrest in Haiti.
"The WFP is not new to
this country ... it is suffering a
long, deep crisis," Alvarez said.
The foreign military force,
numbering about 3,500 troops,
is due to start handing over to
UN-led troops on June 1, but
Lapan said this would not mean
that relief flights would sud-
denly come to a halt.
"The UN resolution (on
the military force) provides
for a 30-day transition and
there will be no stopping of
efforts next week," he said.

Aid flows -,for

the people

HAPPILY, for the benefit of the Guyanese people, the Guyana
Government continues to attract significant levels of for-
eign aid and overseas and local investments to.boost social
and economic development
And this, despite some of the most disturbing overt and
covert attempts by opposition forces to misrepresent and under-
mine policies and programmes being pursued by the Bharrat Jagdeo
Fortunately for the people of this country, the representa-
tives of the international financial institutions and traditionally
friendly donor nations of Europe and North America exercise
judgement based on established criteria and on their own aware-
ness of the scrupulous efforts by the Guyana Government when
they provide aid forsocio-economic development.
Latest demonstration of the goodwill of foreign aid donors
for Guyana came this past week with the signing of two agree-
ments that will result in the single biggest grant aid in many years
from the United States of America to boost economic develop-

ment, battle the killer HIV/AIDS epidemic and help to enhance
the process of democratic governance.
Details of the grant aid package of US$20 million (approxi-
mately G$4 billion) over the next five years were disclosed
following a signing ceremony on Thursday involving Finance
Minister Saisnarine Kowlessar, US Ambassador to Guyana,
Roland Bullen, and the Director of the United States Agency for
International Development, Mike Sarhan.
This is a hugely significant development in Guyana's dire
need for economic development assistance, and comes at a pe-
riod when the Government is about to receive further signifi-
cant grant aid from the European Union (EU).


The EU, which has been and continues to be the single
biggest provider of grant aid to Guyana and its Caribbean Com-
munity partners over many years, should soon be making avail-
able to the Guyana Government approximately 40 million Eu-
ros under the ninth cycle of its development aid programme.
Guyana has also benefitted from financial aid from the United
Kingdom, outside of the flow of EU assistance, and it has been
noted that among the international financial institutions, the
Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) remains a major
provider of development capital resources.
In all of this, those sections of the local media, especially
the electronic media, that seem to work hand in glove with
political opponents of the government, either fail to provide
objective assessments of the benefits to Guyana from the coop-

eration agreements with the international donor community.
Or, worse, misrepresent and deliberately minimize the sig-
nificance of official policies and programmes that attract and
sustain such aid packages. For their part, it is to be hoped that
the opposition parties would seek to pull back from their casm-
paign of distortions and divisive tactics.'
They should consider behaving inia manner that cold sug-
gest their own awareness of the fact that, in the final analysis, it
is the GUYANESE PEOPLE, across the nation, who are the.
ultimate beneficiaries of the aid provided by the international
donor community.
Such as, for example, the most welcome US$
lion aid package from the USA that coincided with last
week's celebration of Guyana's 38th anniversary of politi-
cal independence.

Myth and reality of migrants furore in 'Bim.

IF ONE follows 'talk radio'
programmes in Barbados
these days, he or she could
come to think that the coun-
try is about to be overrun by
other nationals of the Carib-
bean Community, and by
Guyanese in particular.
One of the myths being fos-
tered, including by sections of
the local media, is that for
CARICOM migrants seeking
employment opportunities and
a better life, all roads'lead to
Further, that free primary
and secondary education exists
* only in Barbados, when in real-
ity it is the norm in almost all
. CARICOM countries, including
Guyana and Jamaica, with free
health services also available in
the public sector.
A random check of what
obtains in other CARICOM
states should prove helpful in a
cleansing process for those who harbour grouses,
prejudices and fan passions
about nationals from other
Community states.
There is need to stop the
perpetuation of the myth that
Barbados is being overcrowded
with non-nationals in ignorance
of the reality of the integration
of Barbadians in other
CARICOM societies and their
increasing percentage among the
Caribbean diasporas.
What the negative propa-
ganda may succeed in doing
is to generate unnecessary
fears and spread social and
cultural prejudices beyond
controversially moderated
'talk radio' programmes and,
ultimately, undermine laud-
able efforts by our govern-
ments, such as plans to usher
in a Caribbean Single Market
and Economy (CSME).
Truth is that among
CARICOM countries, it could
be Antigua and Barbuda that has,
in terms of resident population,
the single largest percentage of
non-nationals from within the
Community, approximately 28

per cent of its estimated 73,000
And the new government of
Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer
is currently drafting legislation to
facilitate qualified non-nationals
living there prior to 2000, to be-
come citizens, many of them from
the Eastern Caribbean and also Ja-
maica and Guyana.
Across in Trinidad and To-
bago, a so-called 'little Grenada'
has long been very much part of
the cosmopolitan mik of the di-
verse peoples of that twin-island,
as that Grenadian-born cultural as-
set of the Caribbean, 'Mighty
Sparrow', would remind anyone


One of the major pegs for the
success of the emerging CSME is
the free movement of people, start-
ing initially with an identified five
categories -univer-
sity graduates,
sports and media
people, musicians
and artistes.
The introduc-
tion of common
legislation provid-
ing for these initial
categories and
paving the way for
additions, remains

that they also unfairly benefit

it becomes an issue for more
than Barbadian cabinet min-
isters who disagree with him.
Question is, should all
member states of CARICOM
now also consider creating spe-
cial mechanisms to monitor and
control migrant workers even
as they endeavour to complete
uniform arrangements for free

movement of labour in the con-
text of the CSME? I can see the.
cynics and opponents of the
CSME laughing.


Both the current chairman of
CARICOM, Prime Minister
Spencer of Antigua and
Barbuda, himself a trade
union leader, and St.
Lucia's Anthony, who has
lead responsibility for
Governance and Justice,
made clear in our separate
telephone conversations
that they had no interest
in supporting any initia- L1 .
tive that could frustrate
the aims and objectives of the
CSME, or foster ill-will among
Caribbean migrant workers.
The Trinidad-based General
Secretary of the Caribbean Con-
gress of Labour (CCL), George
DePeana, was to also express his
-"big surprise" over Trotman's
call. He said he "seriously
doubts" that such a move could
secure backing from any
CARICOM government.
Meanwhile, facts are sorely
needed to support some of the
more sweeping generalities to
which the Barbadian society is
being subjected on and off 'talk

grant workers, including the un-
documented ones, with a near
obsession with Guyanese bash-

The. Statistical Department
of Barbados provides a sharply
contrasting picture, showing that
with the completion of the 2000
population census, there were
23,485 non-nationals residing in

Barbados of the then population
of 268, 972.
Of that total resident non-

EU, Latin America condemn U.S. prison abuse in Iraq

By Kieran Murray

(Reuters) European and Latin
American ,leaders condemned
the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by
U.S. troops on Friday and
pushed Washington to work
with the United Nations rather
than go it alone in its war on
terror., '
Despite initial opposition
from Britain, dozens of lead-
ers agreed at a summit in
Mexico to condemn the sexual
abuse and humiliation of in-
mates by American soldiers at
the notorious Abu Ghraib
prison near Baghdad.
Videotapes and photo-
graphs of the abuse have bat-

tered President Bush's elec-
tion-year approval ratings,
alienated public sentiment in
the Arab world and led even
allies in the U.S.-led coalition
in Iraq to join protests.
"We express our horror at
recent evidence of the mis-
treatment of prisoners in Iraqi
jails. These abuses go against
international law," the Euro-
pean Union, Latin American
and Caribbean leaders said in
a draft declaration.
"We energetically condemn
all forms of abuse, torture and
other cruel, inhumane and degrad-
ing treatment against people, in-
cluding prisoners of war," they
said after hours of wrangling over
the wording of the document.

Latin American nations had
wanted even tougher language
but the EU blocked those ef-

Cuba foiled efforts to present
the summit as a success story
of two regions working together
on international issues.
The leaders did agree to

ger United Nations to lead the
way in resolving conflicts in-

states carry for the world's equi-
librium or the deadlocks entailed
by unilateral action."

resolution laying out the pow-

ers of a new Iraqi caretaker
government but other major
powers say the proposals are
not clear enough and want the
interim government given
broad powers.
Cuba and EU nations
clashed throughout the sum-
mit meeting in Mexico's west-
ern city of Guadalajara and,
after failing to bridge their
differences, ended up scrap-
ping a proposal to condemn
the U.S. embargo against the
communist-run island.
Latin American nations
wanted to directly name the
United States and the legislation
it uses to enforce the embargo,
but the Europeans argued for
more general language. Cuba re-
fused to accept the EU's

"decaffeinated" version and it
was withdrawn.
Cuba accused EU nations of
acting like "a flock of sheep, sub-
ordinate to Washington."
The summit of 58 nations with a
combined population of nearly
one billion people and more than
a third of the world's economic
output was aimed at building
closer ties between Europe and
Latin America.
Some said this could help
ease the reliance of both re-
gions on their often troubled

Functions of the City Treasurer's Department (cont'd)

IN OUR last discussion, we
looked at the various func-
tions of the Municipal trea-
surer. We considered the
council's main revenue
base and the legal author-
ity of the Treasurer to deal'
with all matters pertaining

to the finances of the coun-
cil. Such a crucial function
suggests that the Treasurer
be responsible for the
organisation of the depart-
ment and for coordinating
financial arrangements in
all other departments and

Today, we wish to consider
a few more important points on
the present system of operation.
The primary function of this
department is to collect all mon-
ies falling due to the city. This
means, inter alia, that the Trea-
surer has the right to demand
outstanding rates from default-
ers. This is done by the serving
of demand notices on property
owners. Every demand notice
shall contain, in addition to a
statement of the amount de-
manded, the following particu-

exempt from liability to pay

the owners of;
(a) Any property used for
the advancement of religious,
education or social welfare not
with a view to profit;
(b) Any property used
mainly for the purpose of

open air game or of open air
athletic sports and occupied
by a club, society or other
organisation which is not es-
tablished or conducted to
make any profit;
(c) Property used exclu-
sively for the purpose of a hos-
pital, dispensary or public health
institution, where the council is
satisfied that liability to pay the
whole of the rates would seri-
ously prejudice the successful at-
tainment of the object or pur-
pose for which the organisation,

Student assessment

ongoing Education


(GINA) THE continuous assessment of children at the
early stages of their primary education is ongoing, the Min-
istry of Education has indicated.
This is according to Education Minister Dr. Henry Jeffrey,
who said that despite some delays in the programme, it got off
the ground last year.
The first assessment of the Level Two was carried out last
year. According to the Minister, another Level Two assessment
will be carried out this year, and next year, Levels Two and Four
will be assessed. This will be ongoing until the assessment reaches
Level Six.
This assessment is geared at continually assessing students'
performance in the primary school. The main areas of assess-
ment are in Language, Reading and Mathematics.
By 2007, the Ministry hopes that this programme will re-
place the Secondary Schools Entrance Examination (SSEE), which
is a "one-shot" examination at Level Six or Primary Four.
The programme will aid in assessing children's weaknesses
as well as teachers performance and taking corrective action in
this regard.
It will address the issue of ensuring that students reach the
standard atwhichThey are supposed to be at the various levels.
Minister Jeffrey says he does not believe that teachers and
schools pay enough attention to the standard of students at the
various levels as against the standards at which they should be.
To this end, he believes that students should be continu-
ously assessed by teachers as well, and not until the na-
tional assessment programme comes around.

Specia-l COHSOD meeting No evidence of

to focus on new CARIFESTA

A SPECIAL meeting of the
Council for Human and So-
cial Development (COHSOD)
on Culture is to be convened
Wednesday in Georgetown to
rine-tune a strategic plan for
the reorganisation of
The plan was drafted at the
first meeting of the CARICOM
Task Force on CARIFESTA in
Trinidad in March. -
The Task Force on
CARIFESTA was established
after the Ninth Meeting of the
Council for Human and Social
Development (COHSOD) en-
dorsed the recommendation of
the Arts and Culture Sympo-
Suriname in August 2003.
A number of Ministers with
responsibility for culture have
already confirmed their atten-
dance at this first meeting of its
kind, the CARICOM Secretariat
said. The ministers will reflect
on creating a more dynamic fes-
tival that displays excellence in
Caribbean art and culture.
During the two-day meeting,
the Ministers, together with
other regional officials, are also
expected to examine the eco-
nomic viability of the. festival

and help to craft a strategic di-
rection for its reformulation.
In addition, the meeting will
also look at Free Movement of
cultural workers, as well as cul-
tural goods and services against
the international trade rules and
the Caribbean Single Market
and Economy (CSME).
On this issue of the Free
Movement of Cultural Workers,
the Meeting will consider the
recommendations coming out of
the Fifteenth Meeting of the
Regional Cultural Committee
(RCC) held in Trinidad and To-
bago for the revision of the term
'Artistes and Musicians' as de-
fined by the Revised Treaty of
Chaguaramas, establishing the
Caribbean Community includ-
ing the CARICOM Single Mar-
ket and Economy.
As culture trade issues
have assumed prominence in
recent years in light of the
debate over globalisation and
the multilateral trade nego-
tiations, the meeting will also
consider issues of relevance.
to policy makers and is ex-
pected to adopt appropriate
measures to deal with the de-
velopment and protection of
cultural industries.

Since COHSOD VI in April
2002, in which Health and De-
velopment was featured, the di-
rectorate has been working as-
siduously to implement the de-
cisions taken at intervening
The COHSOD, from its in-
ception, has been challenged not
only with establishing an appro-
priate mission, but also with
identifying an effective niecha-
nism for defining the most ap-
propriate arrangements for in-
ter-sectoral activity at both the

regional and national levels.
Under the Revised Treaty
of Chaguaramas, the
COHSOD is expected to
function as an integrated unit
with responsibility for pro-
moting human and social de-
velopment. The aim of
COHSOD is therefore to
bring coherence to the func-
tioning of the social sectors
and complementarity be-
tween the economic and hu-
man dimensions of the
region's development.

SFinal call issued for entries to biodiversity

tional-Guyana recently
launched its sixth annual
'Biodiversity Reporting
Awards' for local journalists,
and is extending a final invi-
tation to journalists covering
the environment beat to sub-
mit their entries by June 2.
Communications Manager
of Conservation International
Guyana Lennox Cornette told
the Chronicle the award, which
was first launched in Guyana in
1999, has always received very
good responses from local envi-
ronmental journalists. He said



* Insulate the hot water pipes and ensure all faucets dose properly.
Leaky pipes can make a dent in your electricity bill since the
constant drip wastes water energy and money. In one day, a
dripping faucet could fill a large tub so replace defective
pipes/faucets immediately.

* UNPLUG all appliances when they are not in use, especially those
that remain in the standby mode after you switch off, e.g.
microwave ovens, TV, VCR Stereo sets, coffee maker, water
purifier, etc. Even in the standby mode they use up electricity, so
pull the plugs.

entries have already been sub-
mitted by reporters from the
Chronicle, Stabroek News and
Kaieteur News.
The 'Biodiversity Report-
ing Award' is presented by
Conservation International (CI),

with its local objective being,
"to increase the quantity and
quality of environmental report-
ing by recognizing the outstand-
ing work of Guyana's environ-
mental journalists, building ca-
pacity and providing training."
Its overall international goal
is "promote high quality envi-
ronmental journalism in
biodiversity-rich countries, with
an emphasis on greater and bet-
ter coverage of conservation is-
sues," the March 2004 issue of
CI-Guyana's newsletter,
Kanuku News, stated.
Winner of this year's award
will receive a roundtrip ticket

from Guyana to India to attend
an annual conference by the In-
ternational Federation of Envi-
ronmental Journalists (IFEJ) to
be staged December 6 10 in
Mumbai, as well as accommo-
dation, meals and conference
fees, Cornette said.
The aim of this conference
is to "improve public under-
standing of environmental issues
worldwide by supporting envi-
ronmental journalists through
networking, education and fos-
tering open access to environ-
mental information."
He said the winner of the
local leg of the award should
use his/her participation in the
international conference as an
avenue to meet leaders in the
environmental community and
network with journalists world-
wide. The winner also receives
training and can build their ca-
pacity while participating in the
international event.
Apart from participating in
the conference, the winner will
also be honoured at an official

ceremony, receive a plaque and

rainfall patterns


RAINFALL patterns contin-
ued as anticipated through
May 24 but generally less-
ened volume and enhanced
drainage have led to flood wa-
ters receding in many areas,
Head of the Presidential Sec-
retariat, Dr Roger Luncheon
reported Thursday.
He said, in some parts,
natural damage has had al-
leviated by the clearing of
outfalls and clogged canals
and, occasionally, the in-
stallation of drainage

Luncheon told his weekly
media briefing that the three
main conservancies, East
Demerara, Mahaica/Mahaicony/
Abary Agricultural Develop-
ment Authority (MMA/ADA)
and Boerasarie, have all been
functioning without problems.
However, in the hinter-
land, major rivers have swol-
len and overflowed their
banks while road transport in
some areas has been affected
by bridges that were dis-
lodged and rendered unus-
able by flooding.

Carter joins decisive checks

in Venezuela poll bid

CARACAS, Venezuela
(Reuters) Former U.S.
President Jimmy Carter yes-
terday joined observers moni-
toring a decisive signature
verification stage in an oppo-
sition campaign for a refer-
endum against Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez.
The Nobel Peace Prize
winner, whose Carter Center
has worked to end Venezuela's
bitter political conflict for more
than a year, visited one of the
centers where the opposition is
trying to reconfirm disputed
signatures in their petition for a
Opponents of left-winger
Chavez say international moni-
tors are their only safeguard
against a president they charge
has manipulated courts and elec-
toral authorities to block any
vote on his rule in the world's
No. 5 oil exporter.
"I have not seen any irregu-
larities. I have heard about
them, but I don't know if they
are true;" Carter told reporters
in Spanish at a signature centre

in a Caracas public school.
Electoral authorities are
scheduled to announce next
week whether the opposition
has reached the minimum 2.4
million valion valid signatures needed
to activate an August 8 recall
vote against ex-army para-
trooper Chavez.
The Atlanta-based Carter
Center and the Organisation of
American States have more than
100 observers monitoring the
process as part of an accord to
end the simmering, often violent
political confrontation over
Chavez's five-year rule.
The United States, the top
buyer of Venezuelan crude, has
urged the government to allow
a fair referendum process. But
the firebrand leader accuses
Washington of meddling and
backing attempts to topple him,
a charge denied by U.S. officials.
Chavez, elected in 1998
promising to fight poverty, has
dismissed the referendum bid as
a fraud by enemies who tried to
topple him in a failed coup two
years ago.

privilege and high honour to be
appointed to his new post.
He expressed thanks to
God for his success and
prayed for continued
guidance so that he can
"give the men and women of
the GDF wise leadership and
serve with the distinction the
President speaks of."

Brigadier Collins succeeds
Major General Michael Atherly.
The Commander-in-Chief
thanked Atherly for his sterling
contribution to the GDF and the
long and dedicated service he has
given to Guyana.
"The people of this country
appreciate that and I hope you
remain in the public service," the
President told Atherly, who was

Ec LUMav 30 04

By Tota Mangar

MAY 26, 2004 marked the
38th anniversary of our
country's attainment of
independence from Great
Britain. On this historic day
in 1966, a new nation,
Guyana, the only English-
speaking one on the South
American continent, achieved
national sovereignty to become
the 24h munher of the then Briidsh
Commonwealth of nations, thus
bringing to an end decades of
British colonial rule.
Guyana's road to political
independence was rather
turbulent. For a brief period into
the early 1950s, its nationalist
movement, the original People's
Progressive Party (PPP) under
the leadership of the late
President and Founder Fathers,
Dr. Cheddi B. Jagan and Mr.
Linden F. S. Burnham enjoyed
overwhelming support from the
working class and masses in
general as they pursued the
noble objective of working class
solidarity and national unity.
Their resounding victory at the
1953 general elections under the
banner of the PPP astounded
many, including local
reactionaries, the Colonial
Office, and moreso, the U.S
State Department.
The mass-based party's
tenure in office was only short
lived (133 days) as Great
Britain, under considerable
American pressure, suspended
the Constitution and overthrew
the legally elected government
under the guise of a 'communist
threat'. The ironical thing about
this sordid affair was that an
interim government was then
imposed on the people and it
comprised many individuals
who themselves had suffered
humiliating defeat at the hands of
the toppled nationalist
As if that was not enough
the nationalist movement itself
became seriously fractured in
1955. This unfortunate
development paved the way for
both the emergence of the
People's National Congress in
1957 and the subsequent intense
political rivalry between our two
foremost leaders, Dr. Jagan and
Mr. Burnham.
Subsequent events such as grave
political and social, instability
including strikes and disturbances
which erupted as a result of the
Kaldor Budget and the Labour
Relations Bill in the 1962-1963
periods clearly illustrated the very
turbulentwaters that our nation had
to endure on its path to
Loss of several lives, the
wanton destruction of properties
to the tune of millions of dollars
and acute dislocation of people
were the sad reality of life during
this dark period of our country's
Under a new Duncan Sandys
imposed electoral system of
proportional representation in
1964, Mr. Burnham headed a
PNC-UF coalition government.

The Major General said
he has no immediate plans,
other than a vacation. He
also said that he and his
successor will be in close
contact and should there be
need at any point in time
for him to lend a hand, he
will do so.
Among those present at
the ceremony also were

Prime Minister Samuel
Hinds, Secretary to the
Defence Board Dr. Roger
Luncheon, Minister of
Home Affairs Mr. Ronald
Gajraj, Lieutenant Colonel
Chabilall Ramsaroop and
former Major Generals and
Chiefs of Staff of the
Guyana Defence Force,

As Prime Minister he shouldered
the responsibilities of leading
the country to independence
while his former colleague and
by then bitter rival, Dr. Jagan,
served as Opposition Leader.
Political independence was
achieved on May 26, 1966.
With independence came the
termination of more than a
century and a half of British
colonial administrative rule and
the colony of British Guiana
giving way to Guyana. At
midnight of 25th May, 1966
thousands of Guyanese from all
walks of life stood proudly and
cheered as the Union Jack was
lowered and the National Flag
went up to herald the birth of a
new and independent Guyana.
Among those who
witnessed the highly historic,
significant and, unique

ceremony were the Duke and
Duchess of Kent; Sir Richard
Luyt, the first governor
general of Guyana; former
Conservative Colonial
Secretary, Mr. Duncan Sandys
and Colonial Secretary, Mr.
Anthony Greenwood and 62
delegates from 47 countries
Of added significance and to
the tumultuous applause of all
who thronged Independence
Square was the comforting bear-
hug embrace between Jagan and
Burnham, the architects of
Guyana's freedom only minutes
before the attainment of
nationhood. That emotionally
charged happening promised
much but in the final analysis
realized very little in the post-
independence era.
As part of independence
was the emergence of our new
Coat of Arms. On it is seen the
pride of our fauna life, two
jaguars holding a pickaxe and
stems of rice and sugar cane and
facing each other proudly across
a painted shield on top of which
resis a visored helmet topped by
the feathered crown of an
Amerindian chieftain. Beneath-a
scroll-like banner boldly
proclaims the Nation's Motto

'One People, One Nation, One
Destiny' while on the shield
itself are found three barrulets of
azure blue symbolising Guyana's
watery nature and its water
potential. This Coat of Arms
justifiably accords pride of place
in our national minds and
reminds us of strength of unity
and sense of purpose.
Independence brought with
it our National Flag, a slender
arrowhead set proudly on a
background of green and red and
stands as a striking symbol of
Guyana's journey into the
future. The lush green colour
symbolises the fields and forests
of Guyana's assets of which the
country is richly endowed. The
red triangle represents the zeal
and dynamic nature of nation
building that lies before the
young and independent nation

while the deep black border
stands for the endurance that will
sustain the forward thrust of its
people. Finally, white
symbolises our rivers, waterfalls
and our hydroelectric potential
of this 'Land of Water'.
Our new National Anthem
is a popular aspect of our
Independence. Reverend
Archibald Luker wrote the
words of 'Green Land of Green'
in response to the nation-wide
competition sponsored by the
then National History and Arts
Council while our distinguished
Guyanese educationist and
musician, the late RCG Potter
composed the music. The title
of our National Anthem is
appropriate and expressive of
colour and vitality and of land
On the morning of the 26th
May, 1966, the National Assembly
witnessed all the pomp and
pageantry and ceremonial aspects of
Westminster In the historic Public
Buildings, the Duke of Kent handed
over to the country's first Prime
Minister~ MrA Forbes Bumham, the
Constitutional Instruments
conceding to us the dignity and
pride of Independence Nationhood
on behalfofthe Queen.
Undoubtedly,. ,,,. :thel

expectations of all Guyanese
were very high at that point in
time and they had every right to
be so. Our then Prime Minister,
Mr. Forbes Burnham expressed
optimism when he said: 'Thus
our journeyings to Independence
have ended. We face, however,
the harder but more emotionally
satisfying and definitely more
self-respecting task of making
Guyana great among the nations
- the tasked of building a free and
just society."
What can we honestly say
38 years after gaining
independence? We certainly
share the joy, pride and dignity
of being an independent nation.
Our expectation was that with
political independence we would
have enjoyed political stability,
national unity and greater economic
progress. Unfortunately, the stark

reality is that today our nation is
plagued with numerous problems
and challenges despite the best
efforts of many.
Political stability and national
unity are as elusive as ever. While
we have made some progress on
the social and economic fronts,
there is still a lot to be achieved.
Foreign debts continue to stifle
us and we experience depressed
world markets and prices for our
exports. We are still to accelerate
our production and productivity
drives. Increased criminal
activity is 'cause for grave
concern. We continue to suffer
from migration and the
consequential 'brain drain' and
capital flight.
As we reflect on
independence, let us show a
greater sense of purpose and
maturity and greater mutual
respect, tolerance and
understanding of all Guyanese if
we are to survive as nation. Let
us put nation first at this critical
juncture of our country's history
and in the face of an increasingly
harsh and oppressive world
A very happy 38th
Independence anniversary to
one and all! Long Live
independent GuyanaL

Time for FIFA to make badge-kissing a...
(From page 22) -.

Manchester United come callingoffering a King's ransom for
their services, players don't wait to be asked twice.
Last September Smith told Leeds fans the one club he could
never play for was Manchester United. What else could he say?
But he'll be kissing their badge neit season after moving across the
Pennines from Yorkshire to Lancashire for 7.05 million pounds
($12.96 million) on Wednesday. ; '
Like Campbell, Figo, Johnston sd countless others before him,
Smith the footballer is not Smith the fan.
In the end it's just a job. It might have been a dead-end job at
Leeds, but Manchester United offers Smith the chance of more
money, more trophies and enhanced international prospects.
It also offers him the chance of a lifetime of loathing from Leeds
fans and he might well need an armed guard next time he is back in
Yorkshire, but he can live with that.
Fans, in reality, cannot change their clubs, but players do
it all the time, and the only thing that both are guilty of is
thinking that anyone believes that loyalty matters in soccer.
In fact it doesn't, but perhaps FI2A should now make kissing the
badge a yellow card offence purely for insulting everyone's intelligence.
As for Sol Campbell. He never supported Spurs as a boy and
he doesn't support Arsenal either.
Once asked where he would like his ashes scattered if he was
ever cremated he replied: "At Upton Park. West Ham that's
where it all started for me."
Logically then, knowing who West Ham fans hate most,
he could well finish his career at Millwall kissing the badge
as he walks through the door.

age 31; and father and

May and June come with deep regrets ,.
Two months we will neverforget
When tides of love are broken and loved ones have to part
It leaves a wound that neverheals
Andmanya sad and broken lonely heart
Your deaths were sudden that it shook us all
All that we have of you both is your pictures hanging on the wall
And memories to last a life time that is written in our hearts in letters of gold
There is no one who can fill you vacant chairs
Sleep on, our dear beloved ones until we meet again
We pray that Lord Shiva grant you both eternal rests
Sadly missed and inserted by your wife and mother Dolly Pertab,
children, brothers and sisters, grands, great grandson and sons and
daughter-in-law, also grand daughter-in-law, nieces and nephews.
Also many thanks to all our neighbours, friends and family who were there

Gillespie, Clarke set up Aussies 3-0 series whitewash

HARARE, (Reuters) Fast
bowler Jason Gillespie and
opening batsman Michael
Clarke guided Australia to a
3-0. series whitewash over
Zimbabwe in the third one-
day international yesterday.
Australia dismissed
Zimbabwe for 196 in 48.5 overs
before replying with 199 for
two, easing to victory by eight
wickets with 19.2 overs to
Gillespie swung the ball to

take five for 32, his third five-
wicket haul in one-dayers, while
Clarke hammered 16 fours and
a six in a career-best 105 not out,
his maiden one-day century.
"He's still a young player,
but he's got a big future in the
game as far as I'm concerned,"
Australia captain Ricky Ponting
said of the 23-year-old Clarke.
"It was great to see him get
his first one-day international
hundred." -
Australia won the first two

matches in the series by seven
wickets and 139 runs.
Michael Kasprowicz, who
shared the new ball with
Gillespie, also bowled well but
was only rewarded with the
final ball of his 10-over spell, an
inswinger that trapped
Zimbabwe captain Tatenda
Taibu in front for 27.
Gillespie and Kasprowicz
bowled the first 20 overs and
reduced Zimbabwe to 61 for six
after Australia had won the toss.

The home batsmen
struggled to combat their
disciplined lines, the top six
hitting just six fours between
them. The only meaningful
resistance came in a stand of
114. between Chigumbura and
Mluleki Nkala, a seventh-
wicket record for Zimbabwe
against Australia.
The pair took advantage of
a noticeable easing of the

Jermaine O'Neal to trounce
the Detroit Pistons 83-68 in

Before his second-round

never won a match on centre

he was on another planet there.
"It's not the surface. It's the

have enough matchplay there.

have good feelings about this

make badge-kissing

a bookable sin

By Mike Collett

LONDON, (Reuters) On the
day Sol Campbell moved
from Tottenham Hotspur to
Arsenal on a free transfer in
July 2001, Spurs fans hung
the effigy of their former dub
captain from a lamp post
outside White Hart Lane.
When Luis Figo, an idol at
Barcelona, returned to the Nou
Camp for the first time wearing
Real Madrid colours a few
months after his world record
transfer in 2000, disgusted
Barca' fans hurled a pig's head
at him as he stepped up to take
a comer.
And when Mo Johnston
moved from Celtic to Rangers -
.via the French club Nantes -
in 1988, effigies of the Scotland
striker were strung up outside
both Ibrox and Parkhead.
Hardcore Rangers fans even
burnt their replica shirts and
season-ticket books in protest
but soon returned as the club
embarked on a run of nine
straight championship titles.
Now Leeds United fans -
who in the past have seen
Gordon McQueen, Joe Jordan,
Eric Cantona and Rio Ferdinand

all move to Old Trafford -
have something else to feel let
down about, as if relegation and
debt was not bad enough. .
Alan Smith, their hero,
their one last golden boy, has
committed the ultimate sin.
He is joining the hated
Manchester United and is the
latest recruit to what the fans
term The Judas Iscariot Club
- the ultimate betrayers.
All over the world fans love
and hate the heroes who play
for their chosen teams,
sometimes at the same time..
But none of them can forgive
what they perceive to be
betrayal by those few special
players who come to embody
the very spirit of their clubs for

them.- -
The reason Campbell's
-move from Spurs to Arsenal
was so painful was because he
had been at Spurs since he was
14 years old and was the club
Moreover, his departure to
their bitterest rivals just down
the road merely confirmed to
Spurs fans what they already
knew in their hearts that
Arsenal was a far bigger and
more successful club.
Nothing in the meantime
has changed that perception and
Campbell now has a pocket full
of medals he would not have
won if he had stayed at Spurs.


Campbell always protested
his loyalty and saw his move
from a totally different
perspective than from the fans
who once worshipped him.
As far as Campbell was
concerned, he was at the end of
his contract and free to leave.
The fact he went to Arsenal left
the fans seething. But as far as
he was concerned, he was
merely starting a new job with
better prospects than his last.
Which is exactly how
Alan Smith of United feels.
That is, Alan Smith of
Manchester United, who,
until this week was Alan
Smith of Leeds United.
Smith's move from the
United of Leeds to the United
of Manchester will unite the
fans of Leeds in a way nothing
else has done since the club's
brief period -of dominance in
England under Don Revie in the
late 1960s and early 1970s.
Their miserable season
ended with the inevitable
relegation to the first division
this month and with the club
still tens of millions of pounds
in debt, a sale of their best
players was inevitable.
But while all around them
was crumbling, Leeds fans could
at least hold on to the dream
symbolised by Smith.
Yorkshire-born, a Leeds fan
since he was a boy, Smith was
the epitome of the badge-
kissing, 'I-love-this-club-more-
than-I-love-my-mum' faux
loyalty which so many players
display today.
In reality the only thing
players love more than their
mums is the size of their
paychecks and when

First Test in St. Lucia...

Rafique lifts Tigers to highest

total with maiden century

By Adriel Richard

GROS ISLET, St. Lucia,
(CMC) West Indies' stocks
were dealt one more cruel
blow when Mohammad
Rafique, batting at nine,
completed his maiden Test
.hundred for Bangladesh on
the second day of the opening
Test yesterday.
Already frustrated by the
slow nature of the Beausejour
Stadium pitch and early morn-
ing rain that precipitated a wet
outfield, the ineptitude of Brian
Lara's side was cruelly exposed
by a left-hander whose previous
highest score in Test was 32.
Rafique, aged 29, heaped
more scorn on West Indies when
he square drove Ramnaresh
Sarwan through cover for four
to reach his milestone and lift
Bangladesh to their highest to-
tal in 29 Tests, a monumental
406 for nine when bad light
stopped play 7.5 overs early.
After the hapless Fidel
Edwards dropped him twice on
84, Rafique rode his wave of
fortune to plunder the wayward
West Indies attack that found
the "whipping boys" of inter-
national cricket too hot to
His innings follows the pre-
vious day's 113 from Habibul
Bashar that gave the Bangladesh
captain his third Test hundred
and highest Test score.
Sarwan with three wickets
for 51 runs from 23.1 overs,
Pedro Collins with three for 83
from 26 overs, and Jermaine
Lawson with two for 66 from
16 overs- were the leading
bowlers for West Indies.
It was another sorry day of
Test cricket that West Indies
will want to erase from their
memories and leaves them with
plenty of work to do over the
last three days to restore their
fallen pride and, indeed, reputa-
Persistent morning showers

Bangladesh had continued from
their bedtime position of 278
for seven.
The real drama unfolded
after tea when Rafique and
the obdurate Mohammad
Ashraful completed an 87-
run stand for the eighth
wicket that gave some indica-
tion of the pending gloom.
Ashraful was finally lbw to

When Baisya was caught
and bowled by Sarwan for nine,
a swift end might have been ex-
pected, but West Indies could
not dislodge either Rafique or
batting bunny Tareq Aziz, mak-
ing his debut, and were deliv-
ered the-ultimate insult.
On 84, Rafique mistimed a
slog/sweep off Sarwan to deep

square leg, but Fidel Edwards
grassed the chance and, in the
next over, bowled by Edwards,
the fast bowler failed to hold a
hot return chance.
Those two dropped
catches added to Edwards'
woes in the field. The previ-

twice and his figures of 21-2-

only served to underline the

GREAT lips don't mean that you have to have the perfect
shape, size or colour. Lipcare and a few handy hints are all.
you need. Arm yourself with a baby's toothbrush, the best lip
balm you can find, a lip pencil and lippie, and a mirror and
you can have the best pouter in town.
Our mouths are our most sensual, expressive feature and the
lips. like the hair, are an accurate indicator of internal health. If you
are dehydrated, your lips may be dry and cracked. If your immune
system is flagging, you may be more susceptible to cold sores or,
split comers. Lips are covered on the outside by a thin layer of
skin and on the inside by virtually transparent mucous membranes,,
and so are very easily damaged. Unlike other areas of skin, they do,
not nave ith pigment melanin to protect them.
I The lips are delicate and packed with blood vessels, and so
vulnerable to injury and bleed readily when damaged. They are also
picked with nerve endings, and therefore very sensitive. Because
the lips have no sweat or oil glands, they can be prone to dryness,
cracking and cold sores, which can be transferred to another person
when kissing takes place. A well balanced diet' maintains a healthy
immune system, and so is an important part of health care.

There's no point in having a sexy pout and wearing the best
lipstick if you suffer from bad breath, Halitosis is a problem that
many people experience at one time or another, but brushing
thoroughly twice a day. flossing daily to remove plaque and food
particles, and scraping your tongue will help to reduce bad breath.
Certain foods or the breakdown of food particles by the bacteria
that inhabit the mouth can cause bad b r e a t h .
Almost everyone has experienced
the bad breath caused by
eating certain foods. The
culprits are pungent

found' in foods
such as garlic and
cabbage. Bad breath can
also be due to lack of saliva.
You can increase your saliva,
flow by drinking more water and
this will help wash away any lingering
'food particles or bacteria. Herbs such a
parsley, cardamom, aniseed, coriander an
fennel seeds are natural breath fresheners. Foods suc as
red meat that can take a long time to digest may also contribute, to
'bad breath. Place a drop of lemon juice on the tip of your tongue to
stimulate saliva flow. The natural astringent present in lemons will
also neutralize odours.

For super-smooth lips, start by exfoliating. After brushing your
teeth, brush your lips for a few seconds while the toothpaste is
still on the brush (five seconds for your upper lip, ten seconds for
your lower lip). Look in the mirror. If you can still see little flakes
on your lips yuckk!) do it again. Make sure to rinse your lps well,
so there's no toothpaste left over.

For soft and smooth lips, apply a moisturising tip balm and
gently brush two to three times a week.' Use a baby's toothbrush
in circular movements; yop exfoliate the dead skin off, leaving your
lips flake-free and feeling soft. Finish with, another application of
your lip balm. Use your balm each morning, qe that contains a
sun protection factor. Did' you know the world's glamorous models

THE condition called Diabetes Mellitus is usually)
referred to the layman as having sugar and is one of the
commonest health problems in. the English-speaking
Caribbean. It is estimated that one of every ten West
Indians has diabetes. They are usually more females th
males with diabetes, as women are usually more obesb
and this can predispose them to diabetes. It is among thi
five leading causes of death in the Caribbean.
In addition, a large number of people are disabled due t(
this disease. Across Caribbean hospitals many of the adult bedi
are occupied by cases of diabetes and its complications. Th(
estimated cost of medication, treatment in hospital and related
services for diabetes in the Caribbean runs into millions of U
dollars annually.
The disease is.considered largely preventable and can be
controlled by proper diet and exercise and in some cases
medication. Preventing or controlling diabetes does not oni
prevent death and disability due to this disease, but also front
other diseases such as heart disease. In order to prevent and
control diabetes, the knowledge and participation of th
individual and the community are important to complete
the efforts of health workers.


Normally, sugar is available to the body from various kind,
of foods, and not only from the sugar we eat. Following a meal
foods are digested and sugar is absorbed. Consequently, the
.level of sugar in the blood usually rises and then falls. It fall!
because insulin, a hormone secreted by a gland named the
pancreas, removes sugar from the blood to the cells which us
it for energy. In diabetes, either there is no insulin at all, or i
is there but not functioning effectively: When sugar is no
removed from the blood at the rate it should,this leads to hig'
blood sugar. Diabetes, thus, is a condition in which there is
too much sugar in the blood. When the sugar in the blooc
reaches so high that the kidney cannot cope, the sugar man

I am concerned about my daughter, "Julie." She
is 16 and a junior in high school. She gets fair
grades, doesn't get into a lot of trouble, and
doesn't smoke or do drugs as far as I know. Why the
concern, you ask? It's the way she dresses.
Julie likes to wear baggy pants, T-shirts with rock band
logos, skull and crossbones, or phrases such as "Psycho."
She wears chains and studs on her pants, wrists, and neck.
Ninety percent of her clothes are black. Just two weeks
ago she cut her gorgeous, waist length white-blonde hair,
dyed it black and pink, and now spikes it every day!
I would like Julie to have her individual style, but I think
she is going way too far. It is crazy and also embarrassing
to my husband and me. Please help me. I have nowhere
else to turn!
Margaret, with children you have to pick your battles.
It sounds like Julie is a good girl who goes to school and
doesn't do drugs. If she has always gotten fair grades, then
nothing has changed.
If you and your husband have certain limits, such as
no tattoos, no body piercing, and reasonable curfews, that's
the battleground. Communicate to Julie what your limits
are, and realize that beautiful white-blonde hair grows back
and a wardrobe can be changed in an instant.
Julie may think she is a rebel, but all she has done is
don the uniform of the group she hangs out with. The
change is as permanent as her age. Let her rebel with the
things which don't matter, and don't concede on anything
which does matter.
If we throw love and care at our children, mixed with a
reasonable amount ofiscipline, things almost always turn out

Too Far
I am in a great relationship for close to a year.
I am divorced because my ex had an affair, and
we were very unhappy. Before this I trusted
each person I was with.
I trust my new girlfriend, but she has a childhood friend
who is still a friend to her, and they have had sexual relations
many times. In a recent trip near where he lives, I suggested
we get together and have dinner. She replied it would be
awkward, and she was reluctant to introduce us.
I didn't press the issue. Now my girlfriend would like
to go and stay with his mother, or him as far as I know,
and get away for the weekend. She mentioned she would
be going to dinner and hanging out with him. She also stated
what they shared is over and more experimentation than
anything else.
I haven't been invited, nor would I really like to go. I
am not happy about it. Am I making a big deal out of
Roger, why wouldn't you have a problem? Your
girlfriend of a year is going to spend a weekend with a man
she's had sex with, a man she does not want you to meet.
Her explanation that sex between them was experimental
is not reassuring. Does it mean she can have sex outside a
committed, long-term, monogamous relationship? Would she
like this man to commit to her and he won't, but she keeps
trying? Is this trip an attempt to pit one man against
Trust and fidelity are absolute essentials in a
relationship, and she is causing you concern about both. You

Wanting a relationship is one thing. Letting somebody
test and break its limits is another. You can't settle for less
and.get more.
When someone tests the bonds of a relationship to this
extent, and you don't protest, they don't respect you more.
They treat you like a doormat.

Never fear emergency

condom man is here

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) A SwediSh aid organisation will roll
out a new line of defence to the country's emergency services
next week the condom ambulance.
From Friday, June 4, amorous couples can call the
telephone number 696969 and a white van featuring a large
red condom with wings as a logo will deliver them a packet
of 10 prophylactics.
"We need to increase the usage of condoms," said Carl Osvald,
marketing manager for the Swedish Gigjpation for Sex Education,
the non-governmental organisation beuin the initiative. "It is 50
per cent about pregnancy and 50 per b-ut sexually transmitted
diseases." ,
'v A. .

The ambulances will operate in Stockholm and the southern cities
of Malmo and Gothenberg. The service, aimed at young people.
will run until June 25 and be available between four in the afternoon

A packet of 10 condoms will cost 50 crowns (3.66 pounds),
less than they cost on average in the shops.
The incidence of sexually transmitted disease is increasing
rapidly in Sweden and not enough young people use condoms,
Osvald said.
"We need to change attitudes to condoms," he said. "If we
need to get out in to the bedrooms to make things better we
will do it"

done after you have not had
anything to eat or drink for at

taken and tested for the level of
glucose. The result will show if

a more time consuming test as,

given a special sweetened drink
and then asked to return for
another blood test after two
hours. The results of these tests
will also inform you if you have

Gypsy ghetto conceals

old Jewish graveyard

By Fredrik Dahl

NIS, Serbia and Montenegro
(Reuters) Dzema Abdulovic
lives with other Gypsies above
the dead in an old Jewish
cemetery in Serbia, his
family using a sarcophagus
as a table in their front yard.
"My father and grandfather
both lived here," said the 35-
year-old outside his home in a
former graveyard chapel on the
outskirts of the southern town
of Nis. "It's peaceful."
His wife Ljubinka said she
was not spooked. "I don't see
any vampires," she laughed,
standing next to the stone coffin
where a rabbi was buried many
years ago. "It is a good house.",
But the decades-old Gypsy,
or Roma, settlement and the
generally derelict state of the
cemetery have shocked Jews in
Serbia and elsewhere.

They want the authorities
to help clean up and restore
what they see as sacred ground
and find new homes for Roma
families who have built roughly
80 houses covering a large
Faded and cracked
tombstones, some with rare
symbols puzzling experts, lie
among weeds and heaps of
garbage. Others were reportedly
used in the foundations of
houses. The surfaces of a few
are discernible in neighbourhood
"There are graves there from
the 17th century," said Davor
Shalom, secretary of the Jewish
communities of Serbia and
Montenegro. "It is completely
desecrated and destroyed."
Ivan Ceresnjes, an architect
historian at the Center for
Jewish Art at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem; said he

was sickened by what he saw
when he first visited a year ago.
"Not a single one in any of
the regions I visited, and I
visited some 400 Jewish
cemeteries, is in such a
catastrophic state as the Jewish
cemetery in Nis," he wrote in a
protest letter to the
municipality in December.

The first Roma settled -at
the cemetery sometime after
World War II, when most of
Nis's Jews were killed during
Nazi Germany's occupation.of
the Balkan country. It gradually
grew into a community of about
300 people.
Like Roma elsewhere, most
inhabitants live in poor and
squalid conditions. But there
are also a few three-story brick-
houses sporting satellite
television dishes and with cars

"It is like a small town,"
said Jasmina Ciric, leader of the
45-member Jewish community
in Nis, one of Serbia's largest
cities with 235,000 people,
including thousands of Roma.
She campaigns for the

restoration of the cemetery,
where the last funeral took
place before Germany invaded
Serbia in 1941. Jews have since
been buried in Nis's Christian
Orthodox graveyard or in the
Jewish cemetery in the capital

"It is holy ground for me. I
want to be buried here," Ciric
said as a horse grazed among
tombstones nearby and pigs
rooted for food on the other side
of a rusty fence.
Ciric, who has become
friends with the Roma
inhabitants, said they would put
their sick children in a broken
sarcophagus, believing it had
healing powers.
She said some memorial
stones were damaged when a
neighboring company erected a
wall to separate its land from
the cemetery. "It is in a very
bad condition."
Ceresnjes, who headed the
Jewish community' in
neighboring Bosnia during its
1992-95 war, said lack of
inscriptions identifying the dead
combined with symbols such as
snakes on some of the
tombstones made the cemetery
"This is definitely very
strange. It is a kind of
message from one generation

health and economic thi*eat"
Today, WHO notes that the tobacco epidemic is still expanding,
especially in developing countries where, currently, 84 per cent of
the smokers live. Tobacco use kills 4.9 million people each year,
and this toll it is expected to double in the next 20 years. At current
rates, the total number of tobacco users is expected to rise to 1.7
billion by 2025 from 1.3 billion now.
To celebrate World No Tobacco Day, the Ministry of Health of
Brazil and WHO are launching a two-day celebratory event in
Brasilia, Brazil, while thousands of other activities and celebrations
are taking place around the world.

Message by Dr LEE Jong-wook, WHO Director-General
Geneva -WHO Director-General, Dr. Lee Jong-wook has called
on societies around the'world to contribute to curtailing the production
and consumption of tobacco products.
The Director-General made the call in a message to mark World
No Tobacco Day observed on May 31.
The full text of the message reads:
"This is the 18th year that countries around the world join WHO
in celebrating World No Tobacco Day. Thanks to great effort over the
years, the harm tobacco does is now well known, and many countries
have taken effective measures to curtail its use.
Globally, however, someone still dies every 6.5 seconds of a
tobacco-related disease, and tobacco consumption is still rising in
several parts of the world. This is occurring mostly in developing
countries, adding significantly to their burden of disease and poverty.
The World Bank estimates that in high-income countries up tq 15
per cent of the health care budget is spent on dealing with tobacco-
related diseases.,Within countries, tobacco consumption is inversely
related to the socioeconomic level: it goes up as the standard of living
goes down. Higher smoking prevalence means that it is the poorer
who bear more of the burden of both the health costs and the economic
costs of tobacco.
I urge everyone to think of how we can help to break the vicious
circle of the poor consuming tobacco more, and tobacco consumption
increasing poverty. Everyone can contribute to curtailing the
production and use of tobacco products.
Last year, WHO's 192 Menber States took a decisive step by
adopting the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Its
provisions establish the directions policies can take to reduce the
damage tobacco does to health and to economies. So far, 118 countries
and the European Community have signed the Convention, and 16
have ratified it.
Countries should lose notice in si ping and ratifying the
Convention in order to move forward in tking strong coordinated
tobacco control measures. I urge all that he not yet done so to take
this step as soon as they can. -
Once the Framework Convention comes into force 90 days
after its 40th ratification it will become a powerful means of
controlling this entirely unnecessary threat to health and welfare.
We will need enthusiasm, persistence and political
commitment to ensure that the Convention enters into force
and is implemented within countries. By helping to control the
tobacco epidemic we will be contri standards of
ali n andEof health worldwide."' C ve- ., .

By Raschid Osman

"I USED to love Mathematics
for its own sake, and I still
do, because it allows for no
hypocrisy and no vagueness,
my two betes noires."
This centuries-old quote is
still as true today as when it
was penned by Stendhal. And
Mathematician extraordinaire
Claude Lee is only too aware of
its entire meaning.
Lee. lives and breathes
Mathematics. He teaches the
sometimes not-too-popular
subject in unique style,
eschewing the traditional text-
book, and applying the
principles of Mathematics to
mundane, everyday-ish
Of course his students love
this, and flock his Akawini
Street home in Campbellville in
droves, from 6.30 a.m. to around
7.30 p.m., Monday through
Saturday, revelling in the chatty
Lee style, and loving it so much
that they sit exams and excel
like nobody's business.
Claude Lee has been
offering Math lessons, for the
\past eight years, after
teaching at St. Joseph High.
He" .as little truck with
traditional teaching
techniques, as he finds these
inadequate, for they leave
behind the slow learner, and
even those who are not slow
but who do not eadily grasp
the. concepts spouted by
teachers who' move on

Lee was always mindful
about problems many students
have with Mathematics, and
being a Christian believer, he
prayed about this. And he
speaks of the methods he now
uses as being revealed to him by
"So we lift each other up in
prayer before each class, my
students' and I, and then we all
have fun and learn Mathematics
at the same time," Lee affirms.

Lincoln Lewis

This is reflected in a banner that
spans a wall in his classroom.
It reads: 'Mathematics is fun'
and 'Jesus is Lord.'
Lee links principles in
Math with Gods' principles. He
finds that terms such as infinite,
multiply, and add are all crucial
to the message of the Scriptures
To factorise in the Lee
lexicon is to go to bed, lie down,
pull up one's feet and cover.
Multiplying is likened to a boy

STYLE: Eko Wilson
dancing with a girl, closely and
he is A, bracketed. Adid a plus
sign to the A, and that becomes
a chaperone, a barrier to the
multiplication process.
In Algebra, a positive value
is referred to as "I have" and a
negative one as "I owe."
Last year, Lee's students
got 20 Grade Ones at CXC
examinations, and he hopes to
up this 30 this year. "
His first class in the day
begins at 6.30 a.m. with high
school students. They come
'from Queen's College,
Bishops' High; and
president's College, among
- other schools, and two buses
whisk them off .from his
classroom to their respective
schools around 8.30 a.m.
Later in the day, his
students come from their places
of employment, men and
women eager to learn
Mathematics, ranging from their
teens to 50 years old. On an
average, Lee deals with 6Q
students each day.

As examinations draw hear,
Sunday sessions are held. .
Fifteen-year-old Eko
Wilson, a fourth 'former at
Queen's College, is enthused
about learning with Lee. She is
quite .. taken with his
improvisations which go a long
way 'in helping her to retain
what he teaches. "'
"I'm encouraged by his
style; he makes me want to do
more, and his humour is
contagious." She said.
"He took us, all his
students,, to service at First
Assembly pf God Church last
Sunday, and we were prayed for
there, and I know that when J

go into the examination room
later this week I will perform
Eko began lessons with Lee
in July last and her examination
grades have jumped from
'around 60 per cent when she
started to about 96 per cent.
And then there is 15-year-
old Lincoln Lewis from
President's College, another Lee
fan, who, like Eko, has been
propelled into a new love affair
with Math. This fourth forther
didn't like the subject at first.
He has now been converted,
with grades in the 70's.'
"I'm caught by the joyful
way Mr. Lee teaches," Lincoln

says. "He never moves on until
every member of the class
grasps every concept. He breaks
them down in interesting ways.
I'm taking math at CXC this
week, and I am aiming at a
Grade One.
Claude Lee regards his
revolutionary, style as a
matter of course. Possessed of
an engaging humility, he
-attributes what he is.
achieving to the goodness of
God; and he looks at himself
as merely a conduit for
passing on to eager students
the principles- of
Mathematics in a manner
both joyous and effective.

WHEN it comes to
consuming art made and
conveyed by technology,
buyers and consumers are
dependent on companies and
corporations who market
such art. This is the situation
right now with the change-
over of films from the video
format to the DVD format.
The most important point
about going to the cinema, or
buying, renting films for TV
viewing, is to exercise one's
choice. Only those'with little
serious interest in films, and time-
to waste, will accept any film
without question. For those
Guyanese who know the true
value 'of choosing foodfilms,

Youths take centre stage at the National Park.

icle MaV.3B. 2004

finding such films in Guyana can
be a frustrating exercise. But the
search for such specific films,
finding them and viewing them,,
can be a very rewarding and
exciting experience.
Because one cannot find in
Guyanese book stores .and
libraries popular monthly Movie
Magazines like 'Classic Images'
(Cdn$5), 'Film Comment'
(Cdn$7.50) or 'Premiere
(Cdn$5), the serious film-viewer
is left uninformed and
uneducated in this topic of
movie-magic, which is the most
popular and mass-oriented of
artforms. One of the best ways
to avoid being left ignorant about
both classic and trivial films, is

to own a copy of 'Halliwell's
Film and Video Guide', or
'Videohounds Golden Movie
Retriever', both updated yearly.
No cinema manager or owner, or
video store owner, or TV station
producer should be without
Right now, all over the
USA and Canada, film stores
are hectic with shoppers
taking advantage of special
offers on newly released film
classics on -..' DVDs.
Thankfully, the new DVD
film releases feature much
more classic older films than
trivial recent films of lesser
all-round value. This is an
important development in the

Hollywood-European film-
culture industry, which
remains unequalled worldwide
for its diversity of topics,
actors, and actresses, its
critical honesty and high
standards of freedom and,
Those who possess classic
films in video, especyjaly in
bladk and white, now own
precious collector's items of
great value, because not all
videos are being re-released as
DVDs. This process of selected
transferral to DVD formal allows
certain films to vanish due to
their slow sales record, not their
social or artistic worth. But if
one thousand persons see,
purchase or rent a film that does
not mean it is a better or more
valuable film than one seen,
rented or purchased by one
hundred persons.
Because of this expected
result, Hollywood film studios
make less DVD prints of all
classic films, knowing that
film fans who are well
informed and educated in
film-culture will probably
already possess a copy of such
classics, which leaves only a
slowly growing market of new
serious film fans in search of
excellence. This is not
surprising, since the best
educational things in life are
not usually the most popular;
if they were, the world would
no doubt be a far better place
to live in today.
How, therefore, can
Guyanese benefit from this new
development in DVD film-
culture? The average citizen has
to begin to learn about films that
will help raise the literacy,
educational, moral and ethical
levels of citizens, young and old,
as in the past. If everyone
involved in the movie business
locally becomes aware of which
films bear these qualities and
experienced it for themselves,
then doing business with films of
quality will become less of a
Neither TV nor home rental
videos serve the education of
'buyanese as well as cinemas did
in tiepast, because each cinema
in past decades served specific
film studios, so that everyone
collectively saw in public much
information abott 95 per cent of
Hollywood and European films
Observant film fans knew
that Plaza represented Columbia,
Universal International, Britisht
Lion and J. Arthur Rank Films,
as well as French and Italian
companies; Astor represented
Paramount and Warner Brothers;

showcase for only films from
India, in the 1970's.
As the only English-
speaking nation in South
America, Guyana had for
decades been the foremost
destination for outstanding
Hollywood and sub-titled
French and Italian films on
the continent. So important
was English-speaking Guyana
to film culture on the whole,
that Jack Warner, owner and
head of Warner Brothers, one
of Hollywood's most socially
daring and artistic companies,
took out an entire Ad-page in
the Chronicle in February
1959, thanking Guyanese got
their support of his company's
films during those trying
years when he was exiled due
to the Cold War Senate
enquiries into films of social
Today, most of those films

are regarded and studied as
highly creative and moral
examples of film culture. To
celebrate Mr. Warner's return to
the USA and Hollywood, every
Guyanese cinema showed only
Warner Bros. films on a specific
day in 1959.
Today, few Guyanese or
Hollywood Studio staff know
how relevant the best
Hollywood films were to an
unbiased, democratic ind
developed intelligence among
Guyanese citizens. The USA,
* which produced some of the best
creative writers and film makers
of the 20th century, has
paradoxically damaged its
reputation abroad by ending the
once easy availability of
precious moral and social films
which were relevant to
developing nations like Guyana.
Hundreds of well made
rustic and socially
inspirational films focusing
on the lives of ordinary
. working people in rustic
tropical environments have
simply vanished, and have
not re-appeared on video ,or
DVD. Films with charismatic



and humble male stars like
Jeff Chandler, Audie Murphy,
Fred Macmurray, John
Garfield, Kirk Douglas, Dana
Andrews, Alan Ladd,
Randolph Scott, Richard
Widmark, Gary Cooper,
Frank Sinatra, Ray Milland,
Joel McCrea, Glen Ford,
Harry Belafonte. Hot female
stars like Jane Russel, Donna
Reed, Dorothy Malone,
Dorothy Dandridge, Barbara
Stanwyck, Virginia Mayo,
Rhonda Fleming, Ava
Gardner, Gene Tierney, Ingrid
Bergman, Lana Turner, Susan
Hayward, Cyd Charisse,
Jennifer Jones, Sophia Loren,
Nathalie Wood, Bette Davis,
Joan Crawford, Jean
Simmons, Joan Fontaine and
Jane Fonda.
The new DVD releases
would be enhanced if the films
of such stars were included,
with an eye to distribution in
developing nations like
Guyana, benefiting both the
moral interests of such
nations, and the original
democratic free-market ideals
of Hollywood film-culture.

Guyana has many areas of
biological interest, but for the
purpose of this article the areas
of immediate interest are
discussed below.

Kaieteur National Park

Kaieteur National Park is
Guyana's only National Park (a
National Park is a protected
area managed mainly for
ecosystem protection and
recreation). Kaieteur was
established as a protected area
in 1929 and covered then, an
area of about 72 square miles;
recently, in 2000, the area was
further extended to '242 square
miles. The primary objective
was to set up a park sufficiently


large to be of ecological
significance. The primary
attraction is Kaieteur Falls with
a sheer drop of over 700-feet,
it is reputed to be the highest
single drop waterfall in the
world. Kaieteur National Park
has outstanding scientific and
recreational values and has one
of the highest levels of
endemism in South America.
With altitudinal variations, there
is an important parent soil
material, high rainfall, montane,
dry, rain, seasonal forests and
savannahs. There is high species
diversity and there are many
threatened and endangered
species of birds, primates and
felines. The forests also protect
important watersheds of the
upper Potaro and Kuribrong
rivers, as well as catchments of
creeks draining south, which the

Iwokrama International
Centre for Rain Forest
Conservation and Development
was established under the
Iwokrama Act of 1996. The 360
000 hectares protected area is in
the centre of the country.
Approximately half of
Iwokrama is to be designated as
a Wilderness Preserve with the
other half being used for the
sustainable utilisation of
resources. The Iwokrama
Reserve is almost entirely
covered with tropical rain
forest, which varies
considerably from place to
place. More than 500 species of
trees and over 400 species of
bird have been recorded within
Iwokrama boundaries. Among
the mammals known to occur
are: Jaguar, Ocelot, Tapir,
Peccary, Labba and several
species of monkeys. Ten (10)
new species of frogs have been

I often think that NIS is a waste of time. I would like to stop paying for, -1
myself and employees and pay a private insurance. Why can't I?


Unfortunately, there are persons who are still not fully aware of the role
of Social Security. As a result, there will be some degree of discontent ,
resulting in such feelings. Social Security unlike other forms of Insurance, q
is always compulsory. It is a sign of civilization and a means of providing -
for the citizens of a country. The Benefits that can be derived outweigh the
contributions made by persons. This is because the spread of risk is
much greater (the entire country).

The Social Security Act ensures that workers are protected by securing
income. While some employers, even some self-Employed persons, will.
protect their workers and themselves so that they do not becoa ML
liability on society when faced with certain conditions, many witO .. :ir
to do so. Social Security.contributes to protecting the social fabric of
society. It assists in poverty alleviation, This cannot be left to chance or
to the good nature of few individuals. What would happen to the vast ;..
majority of persons who pmay not be fortunate enough to havegood,
benevolent Employers?

jazz and its wild rhythms as a

magazine dubbed it the

danger was commercial.
As the backbeat of rock
and funk eclipsed jazz's
popularity, many Western
artists started playing their
own compositions to make a
name for themselves,
threatening the open
sessions where musicians
could swap ideas around
common themes.
"Jam sessions are almost
non-existent now," Benny
Golson, the 75-year-old veteran

ind ou

of Dizzy Gillespie's band and
Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers,
told Reuters.
"With the new breed on the
scene it's a new mentality. It's
definitely all about record sales."
Another problem, critics
say, is that big record labels
brand everything from the
insipid tunes piped into hotel
lobbies to electronic lounge
music as 'jazz," an attempt to
reach the widest possible
audience which ends up diluting
the art form.


But it, the bars of Saint
Louis, ensemble playing still
rules, with spontaneously-
formed bands tearing their way
through, improvised tunes as
local youths drum themselves
into a frenzy.
"In terms of jamming
with the local guys you just
don't find it elsewhere," said
Sibel Kose, a singer from
Istanbul. "Here there's still
the tradition of playing
together, it's like a melting
pot of musicians."
The: organizers of Saint
Louis' festival say 50-60,000
people from Senegal, Mauritania

and other parts of Africa, as
well as tourists from Europe
and the United States come for
the music.
The plan is to use money
generated each year to create an
academy in Saint Louis by
2006, where young African
musicians will have access to
decent instruments and studios
and ihe chance to play with
European and U.S. artists.
"The musicians who come
here feel that there is more
freedom of expression," said
Abdel Fall, the festival's
"One of our objectives is
to have a place where African
musicians and musicians

Afitter preuhgn ical sliU

AST week we discussed the
infected dog's uterus twomb)

during the period
immediately after she has
given birth. There are two
conditions that affect the
breast of bitches even as she
nurses her puppies. Both
conditions are associated with
an inflammatory process, so
I suppose it would be correct
to place them under the
heading of Mastitis. We will
deal with only one today.

Usually, this ailment
emerges when the mammary
glands are filled with too much

milk Thei. problem can result
from -several causes, working
singly or together Firstly, if
there is an over-production of
milk, there will be a congestion
because the puppies just can't
suckle enough to decrease the
quantity of milk available in the
breast. On the other hand. if the
milk production is adequate, but
the pups are weak and unthnfty
and are unwilling to suckle, then
there will be a milk build up.
Also, if the mother has given
birth to only one or two pups.
they would not be able to
withdraw the milk being

produced b% 10-12 aciie
In my own practice I have
from time to time encountered
deformed nipples (or nipple
canals) which lead to milk
congestion and "'caked" nipples.
I had mentioned in an earlhei
TVA that some dogs exhibit all
the symptoms of pregnancy
but are not pregnant ('False
pregnancy',. TVA of September
21st, 20031. Well, with no
puppies to remove the 'milk'
which is produced dunng the
False Pregnancy, caking occurs
on the nipple.

This is a painting and not a photograph of a pair of Foxhounds. The original painting by
George Stubs hangs in the Tate Gallery in London. Stubs was renowned for his lifelike
portraits of animals.

Again. experience shows
that the two hind glands
breasts) are the ones that
usually display this caked
breast condition They begin to
swell and are warn and painful
to the touch Later the breasts
begin to get hard. On a more
scientific note, one can test the
milk for its acid quality. A
simple piece of pH paper can
be used. Your vet can help you
in this regard. Actually, milk
from the simple caking of the
breasts usually has a normal pH
and is not injurious to the
suckling puppies.

NB: Normal canine
breast milk should test to a
pH of 6.0 to 6.5 colostrum,
the first milk after the pups
are born, has a pH of 7.0. Any
milk, other than colostrums,
that has a pH of 7.0 is
infected. If the puppies drink
such infected milk they will
get sick.

One should massage the
caked breast twice daily with
camphorated oil. Apply hot
packs and pull at the nipple to
draw out some of the coagulated
and caked milk. Some
veterinarians tend to introduce
the male hormone, testosterone,
as part of the therapeutic
intervention. I tend to keep
away from this treatment
method, simply because the
creation of hormonal imbalances
can produce greater problems
later on.
Since the breasts are
enlarged it would not be



unwise to give the animal
diuretics under veterinary
advice and supervision, of
course) so as to reduce the
size of the swollen breast.
Also,'one can use a pain-
killer (analgesic) to reduce
the pain and discomfort. The
introduction of pain-killers
must be short term. Some
wise books advise that the
dog's food intake should be
reduced whenever there is a
NMastitis condition. There is
some logic to this approach,
but the matter should be
discussed with your vet.
There would make no sense
to deprive a mother dog of
quality food, when she has a
huge litter and has become
severely emaciated during
the pregnancy and lactating

NEW YORK (Reuters) Hip
hop's bad-to-the-bone king o
style is trying on a new role
these days, transforming
himself into a humble actor


By Dean Goodman

LOS ANGELES-(Reuters) Eminem's favourite English
pop singer may have sold 20 million albums, but Dido is
no diva. In fact, she is so mild mannered she has to make
New Year's resolutions to get tough.
Fhme and fortune appear to have had little effect on the
woman who was given a license to act out when her progressive
London parents named her Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle
Armstrong 32 years ago."
For Dido, there are no legions of bodyguards, no public
displays of debauchery, not even the odd temper tantrum. Just
don't accuse her of being too nice.
"I love a confrontation," Dido said in a recent interview with
Reuters. "One of my New Year's resolutions last year was to
just say what I think, when I think it."
The old Dido used to feel taken advantage of all the time.
The new Dido had no qualms about pulling rank when it came
to planning her current North American tour which started on
May 17. Her advisers wanted her to play big venues, as she
did at the tail end of her last jaunt. But she demanded and got
- a tour of more intimate theatres.
'"I know that when I go out to gigs, I love seeing people
in theaters. I love it when I'm up close and I feel like I'm
part of something. I'm gonha spend my summer doing really
special shows where everyone feels part of it. We can do
bigger ones later. I've got the rest of my life to tour. It's
aD good."
The shows will help further promote her second album,
'Life for ent', which has sold nearly nine million copies
worldwide since its release in late September and picked up a
Grammy nomination and two Brit Awards along the way.
Its 1999 predecessor, 'No Angel', sold 12 million copies,
thanks in part to an odd-couple collaboration with Enunem. The
bad-boy rapper sampled her delicate love song 'Thankyou' on
his 2000 stalker hit 'Stan', and its worldwide popularity
inspired fans to seek out the original by the obscure chanteuse.
"It still amazes me what's happened," Dido said of her
whirlwind career. "F can't really take it m. and I think there are
so many ways that I still feel like I've got so much to learn.
Ive got an endless, endless life of learning about music, and
that fascinates me."
Dido began her latest tour, a monthlong trek of North
American theaters, in Vancouver, and then will play dales in
Europe through lale July. While her albums are generally mellow
affairs, the live show can get quite aggressive, she says.
"It's more bombastic in a lot of ways, sorta more extreme
than the albums in that there's extreme noise and extreme
acoustic. It swings violently between lots of different things."

Many of the key songs on. 'Life for Rent', including the
title track, first single 'White Flag' and 'Sand in My Shoes',
were written in Los Angeles, and Dido expects she probably
will buy a house in the city to keep tapping her creative juices.
"Sometimes you have to be lonely to write, not all the
time, but it helps," she said. "And if you've got a lot of
stuff inspiring you, and you're feeling a bit alienated, weird

Super slick Sean Combs,
who performs his music as
'P.Diddy', and became one of
hip hop's top stars as 'Puff

new arena, playing a pivotal role
in an acclaimed production of
'A Raisin in the Sun'.
Combs was the show's
only star not to get a Tony
Award nomination, but the
music and fashion entrepreneur
is enjoying his own rewards
from the play.

Combs said he has been
studying acting for 10 years but
that tackling the 'Raisin', role
represented a quantum leap.
"The most pages I've ever
had was four pages," he said
about his scripted lines in films.
"I went from that to 100 pages
of dialogue and live theatre."
His co-stars admire his

Rashad, who'plays the
family matriarch, said Combs
has a lot to offer.
"He brings a lot. He does

responsibility for his businesses

Broadway job until his run ends

emotionally attached to it -
there's no award that could give'
me that satisfaction."
Combs sees 'Raisin' as the
start of something big
"Broadway has definitely
got real hot on the block," he
said. "It's like a new generation
"I definitely have the
acting bug and it's getting
better and better every day.
And I'm not going to stop til
I'm up there with the greats."
