Expect economic, lifestyle changes if Bird Flu hits

By Ruel Johnson

ANY drop in the production of
local chicken as a result of the
Avian Influenza, will most
likely cause economic ripples,
as well as a change in lifestyle
of most Guyanese, President
of the Guyana Poultry Asso-
ciation, Mr. Patrick DeGroot
said yesterday.
DeGroot was one of the
presenters at a seminar on 'Risk
Communication for Influenza
Pandemic' which followed the
presentation of Pan American
Health Organisation (PAHO)
awards to journalists for out-
standing health coverage.
The first half of the semi-
nar constituted presentations
by DeGroot, who focused on
the Avian Influenza pandemic .in
birds; and Dr. Shamdeo Persaud,
Epidemiologist and Director of
the Department of Disease
Control in the Ministry of
Health, who spoke about H5N 1
- the bird flu virus in humans.
Both men are members of a spe-
cial multi-sectoral Committee on
Avian Influenza, established by
Dr. Ramsammy last year. In an
interview with this paper last
year, Minister Ramsammy had
stated that his Ministry was
treating the potential Flu Pan-
demic as inevitable.
According to DeGroot, mi-
gratory patterns of birds show
that migrating birds from Asia
will cross paths with migrating
birds from North America in late
December of this year. Some
North American birds usually
fly south during winter
months. DeGroot stated that
hopefully, the late date could
possibly see potentially infected
birds being grounded in the
North until the spring thaw in
April, thereby delaying possible
infection of local birds.
The Poultry Association
President said that local chicken
comprises 83 per cent of the
general meat consumption, with
Guyanese who comprise a
population of about 700,000 -
eating an average of around one
million pounds of chicken each
week. Any drop in production
due to infection of poultry'
birds would most likely impact '

on the economy as well as the
lifestyles of most people in
Guyana. DeGroot outlined spe-
cial steps being taken by the
Committee, and by the Poultry
Association in preparation for
the potential pandemic.
Dr. Persaud outlined some
basic information about the virus
for the media, including its gen-
eral structure and how it affects
its host. He also clarified Minis-

ter Ranisammny's comments on
the availability of luniflu saying
that the 10,000 doses would ful-
fill the requirements for the rec-
ommended treatment regimen of
one week for some 1,400 persons.
He added that 100,000
doses or treatment for 14,000
people for one week could
readily be produced by the Min-
istry, but because the drug has
a shelf life of about 18 months,

lishing stories that highlight
problems and shortcomings
within the national health sector,
stories of the everyday, heroic
acts of health workers should be
told as well.
"There are many opportu-
nities to do more than one story
per day on health," the Minis-
ter stated.

production has been reserved
for the first signs of an actual
pandemic. The current available
doses would be provided to
health workers in the case of
any Bird Flu outbreak so that
they could more effectively deal
with controlling the pandemic.
During the final phase of
the workshop, Jones P. Ma-
deira Information Advisor,
Special Programmes on Sexually

Dr. Ramsammy gave ex-
amples of people who have
dedicated their lives to the
health care sector whose stories
remain untold: one senior health
care worker who spent 50 years
in the system, moving up from
the post of.a trainee nurse; two
nurses in Berbice who recently
retired after 49 years of service
each; one nurse .who went to a
village on the Pomeroon to tem-'
porarily replace:a pregnant col-
league for six months during the
1970s, and ended up staying.
until she retired in the 1990s.
"There are health workers
wlo have to paddle up rivers
every day to do their job,", the:
Minister said. He added that foi-
every negative thing done by
health workers in Gilyana, there
are 00() things done which are
positive. IHe staltd, that he, as
Minister of lqigalth. should be
considered as'a collaborator
with: media workers who expose
flaws in the health care system.

interactive session, during
which journalists questioned
Mr. DeGroot and Dr. Persaud
on their presentations. After-

communication within society

his Ministry's response to the
threat of Avian Influenza, stat-
ing that as part of its prepared-
ness strategy, the government
had procured 10,000 doses of
Tamiflu, the most effective drug
so far in dealing with Bird Flu.
He stated the Ministry also
possessed the capacity in-
cluding both the technology and
the ingredients to produce an
unlimited supply of the drug.
The media has an impor-
tant role to play as catalysts for
change in the health sector.
Minister Ramsammy said. and
had the power to do things that
he could not. He cited, as ex-
,ample, that though he did not
have the legal power to termi-
,nate the employment of certain
delinquent officials, the media
had thile power to highlight their
shortcomings and hence goad
them into action.
,Alsospeaking at the event
was PAHO-WHO Representa-
tive Dr. Bernadette Theodore-
Gandi who highlighted the role

in general, and communication in
health and in the time of a health
crisis, specifically.
"I am highly impressed that
this country was taking this is-
sue quite seriously, as indeed
rest of the world should be," Mr.
Madeira said.
Health Promotion Advisor at
PAHO/WHO, Ms. Renee

ences of the flooding in the coun-
try last year had informed the
organisation's decision to couple
this year's award ceremony with
a seminar on Bird Flu.

discourage the media from pub-

the media played in bringing to
light health issues.
According to Ms. Renee

therefore pleased to be able to
set things back in place, and de-
cided to host the presentations

tion were Information Liaison to thel President and G1NA Head,
Mr. Robert Persaud, Independence Coordinator of GINA, Kassia

for Guyanese to admire and reflect on Guyana's achievements
over the years.
"I want to use this opportunity to-encourage members of
the public to think about the 40th Independence anniversary as
a time when we should reflect on 40 years and rededicate our-
selves to ensure that we are all committed to unity in Guyana,"

According to GINA, Director of the Bank of Guyana, Mr.
Frank Tucker said that the Bank has been instrumental in
Guyana's economic development and was established in 1965

President George W. Bush
pressed the U.S. Senate yes-

its Memorial Day holiday
Bush used his weekly radio
address to step up pressure on
senators debating legislation that

The president, who backs
immigration reform largely along
the lines of what the Senate is
considering, announced plans to
deploy 6.000 National Guard
troops on the U.S.-Mexican bor-

from the Oval Office on Monday.
"America must secure its bor-

HANOI (Reuters) A typhoon
that swept through the South
China Sea has killed more
than 100 people, officials
said, as rescuers from Viet-
nam and China extended
their search yesterday for
more than 400 fishermen
missing since Wednesday.
Typhoon Chanchu, the
strongest on record to enter the
South China Sea in May, the
start of the storm season, left a
trail of destruction in China,
Vietnam and the Philippines.
It killed at least 37
people in the Philippines last
weekend, and by late Friday
rescuers had found the bod-
ies of 44 Vietnamese fisher-
men. They drowned after
their ships were caught in
Chanchu's path.

bill." he said "Now the Senate should act by the end of this
month so we can work out the differences between the two
bills, and Congress can pass a bill for me to sign into law."
Bush effectively is urging the Senate to get it done by Fri-
day. Congress takes a one-week recess starting next weekend
to mark the May 29 Memorial Day holiday.
The immigration debate has pitted tie second-term
president against some conservatives in his own Republi-
can Party who insist that a guest-worker programme would
amount to amnesty, a view the president firmly rejects.

Calm returns

to shocked

Sao Paulo

(BBC) Brazilian officials
say calm has returned in the
state of Sao Paulo after a
week of clashes between
gangs and police that left 170
people dead.
A police chief urged people
to "go out and have fun" over
the weekend as his officers kept
watch on the streets.
Violence erupted last week
with prison riots and attacks on
police, organised by criminals
based in Brazil's jails.
Officials deny the charge
that a police crackdown, in
which some 107 suspects
reportedly died, was heavy-

said life was returning to
"1 say to our people, the
police are still in the streets,
they can go out and have fun
this weekend," Col Eclair is
quoted by the Reuters news

agency as saying.

The BBC's Steve
Kingstone in Sao Paulo says
that if Col Eclair is proved right
and the weekend is quiet, this
may simply be because neither
the police nor the crime gangs
have any reason: for prolonging
the conflict.
He says the police have
been criticised over their
crackdown, while the criminals
may use a lull to generate more
funds through drug trafficking
and racketeering.
The violence began on
Friday last week, when police
were attacked in apparent
retaliation for the transfer of
765 jailed members of the First
Command of the Capital (PCC)
to a maximum-security prison.
A police union is suing
security officials, saying they
should have foreseen the violent
consequences of the transfer.

Hemingway papers

link Cuba and U.S.
(BBC) Cuba is sending the U.S. copies of more than
20,000 papers relating to the Nobel Prize winning Ameri-
can writer Ernest Hemingway.
The move is part of a deal on restoring Hemingway's legacy
that, correspondents say. has united the usually feuding gov-
ernments of Havana and Washington.
The papers sent to the U.S. Library of Congress include
copies of Hemingway's letters and some of his famous novels.
Hemingway spent much of his time living in Cuba between
1939 and 1960.
Marta Arjona, the head of Cuba's National Heritage Coun-
cil, said the documents being sent to the U.S. amounted to an
"invaluable" gift relating to that period.
She told Cuba's Communist Party newspaper Granma that
the move was part of an agreement, reached in 2002, to restore
and digitalise some 11.000 documents relating to Hemingway.
The documents sent include copies of letters in which
Hemingway outlines his stance on World War Two and the
Spanish Civil War.


THE opposition parties seem to be fighting on various
fronts with the common objective of frustrating the Guyana
Elections Commission (GECOM) from pressing ahead with
arrangements for the forthcoming elections.
They are engaging in a mixture of street threats, trying to
compromise the international donors in the verification process
of the electoral register for the elections as well as now resort-
ing to legal action against GECOM and the Attorney General.
On the latest development, the court action filed by the
PNCR's Joseph Hamilton, as reported in Friday's Chronicle,
we suspend comment for now. 1in relation to the "non interfer-
ence" stand reportedly adopted by the locally-based represen-
tatives of the international donors, this is not surprising.
However, on the open political front, whether it is out of
personal desperation or collective political bankruptcy, the abu-
sive attacks last weekend against the Guyana Elections Com-
mission (GECOM) and its independent chairman in particular,
Dr Steve Surujbally, is quite deplorable.
The abuse emanated from one of the speakers at the public
rally held at the Square of the Revolution under the auspices of
the main opposition People's National Congress Reform
(PNCR) and involving some of the myriad of small, peripheral
Apart from exhorting supporters to resort to street protest
- what for, precisely, remains clouded one speaker, in a very
emotional outburst against the electoral roll being updated for
the coming 2006 elections, astonishingly renamed it the "Buffy
'Buffy', as known to the police and the public, is the nick-


name of the 'Trinidadian national, David Millard, who
was recently extradited to his country where he is wanted, among
other charges, for conspiracy to murder.
Millard told local police, while in their custody, that during
his illegal stay in Guyana, he had served as a bodyguard for a
"businessman" known to be involved in drugs trafficking.
While one alleged leading drug trafficker is constantly in the
news, we are unaware of ANY action by the Guyana Police
Force to question the drug trafficker named by Millard, a/k
But the immediate relevance of a desperate opposition
politician pouring scorn on the electoral register being finalised
by GECOM by describing it as a "Buffy list" suggests how
very low has already sunk the opposition campaign to derail
the lawful process of electoral arrangements even before an-
nouncement of the actual date for the poll.
Worse, the GECOM chairman, mutually agreed to from a
list of nominees, and with whom representatives of both the
governing and opposition parties have been working until the
recent expediently-devised boycott of an opposition trio, is
now being targeted for base attacks.
One does not have to be an admirer or defender of the
GECOM chairman indeed, we have some disagreements of
our own to appreciate how disgusting it was to have him be-
ing ridiculed at that opposition rally.
One speaker urged that since, as a veterinarian, he was in
the business of certifying foot and mouth disease; he had to
ascertain that the electoral list he was preparing as GECOM
chairman was not "diseased".
To provoke laughter is one thing, to send a dangerous mes-

sage to mislead innocent people into thinking that a "diseased",
unfit electoral register was in the making for the forthcoming
presidential, parliamentary and regional elections, is most un-
justified and sinister.
We would urge, in the interest of a climate of peace, so es-
sential for the conduct of free and fair elections, that politi-
cians and their parties temper public statements and seek to
offer facts rather than fiction.
At the same time, it is at least encouraging to know
that the three opposition nominees have returned to mem-
bership of GECOM and, hopefully, all concerned are
indeed working to advance arrangements to ensure hold-
ing of the coming 2006 free and fair elections.

Urgent priorities as Aristide waits return

IN AN editorial last April 4, while arrangements were being
made for the inauguration of Rene Preval as President of Haiti,
the Barbados Daily Nation had expressed a widely shared sen-
timent beyond our Caribbean region:
"A constant feature of life in Haiti, long after the 'Duvalierist'
era ended in the 1980s", the editorial noted, "is the utter poverty.
unstable political climate and uncertainty about the independence.
competence and integrity of its law enforcement and judicial insti-
Indeed, poverty, illiteracy, violence and fear are deeply located
across the landscape of what remains the oldest and poorest nation
in the Western Hemisphere, and whose involvement in our Carib-
bean Community is still quite marginal as its newest member of
nine years.
A week ago today (May r
21), Preval's inauguration took
place in a comparatively low-keyed .
ceremony in contrast to that of
his elected predecessor and former
mentor. Jean Bertrand Aristide.
ousted from power on February
29. 2004 by a combination of lo-
cal and foreign forces.
The shared hopes of Haitians,
at home and of the Diaspora. is
that Preval's second coming as
President would make a qualitative
difference in improved governance
and their basic needs to that of his
first term ten years ago. RENE PREVAL
There, however, lingers the
fear of deja vu in the return to the Presidential Palace in Port-au-
Prince of the 63-year-old agronomist as Haiti's elected Head of
Fear of a general pattern of hopes dashed with recurring new
administrations since the end of the long, painful Duvalierist era two
decades ago?
Preval holds the record as the sole elected President to have
served a full five-year term since HIaiti became an independent na-
tion in 1804. But that first administration is best remembered for
functioning in the shadow of Jean Bertrand Aristide and for failing
to make any significant impact in the country's socio-economic and
political life.

It was a kind of holding operation in governance of the nation
until the return of Aristide who had faced his first coup in 1991 only
after one year in office as Haiti's first freely elected President since
independence. The second came in 2004.
Within CARICOM, Preval is remembered as the lHaitian leader
who, with strong support from Aristide, had signed up Haiti for
provisional membership of the Community back in July 1997 in
Montcgo Bay underC he hen chairmanship of the now retired P.I.
Regularising Haiti's role as a full-fledged member of
CARICOMI to participate in the CSME as well as expediting
its access to the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) as a bor-
rowing member country remains unresolved issues. The lat-
ter could well have re-emerged for discussion at last week's
annual Bloard of (Governors meeting of' the CDB in Montego
la) 3.
.'!:... .. i... ~ ~ ...,:r. .

Whatever the reason, CARICOM was not chosen for inclusion
in Preval's pre-inauguration priority visits abroad that took him first
to the USA for a meeting with President George Bush and later to
Cuba to meet with President Fidel Castro.
Nor did CARICOM, which had a token official presence at last
Sunday's inauguration ceremony, consider it a priority to invite him,
following his February 7 election, as President-elect for consulta-
tions ahead of the Heads of Government Summit in July in St. Kitts
and Nevis at which he is expected to be a principal speaker for the
opening session.
If in deciding to meet with Bush and later with Castro, Preval
was signalling the independent spirit with which he hopes to gov-
ern Haiti. in cooperation with a newly-elected parliament, then he
must be given the respect and support to do so.

America's influence can make much difference in helping Haiti
to scale its mountainous problems. Sadly. this influence.
overall, has not been used for the good of the Haitian people.
The results of the pre-inauguration Bush-Preval meeting in
Washington in terms of aid flows and cooperation with a new ad-
ministration in Port-au-Prince will be closely monitored.
Going to Havana for a meeting
with Castro was perhaps Preval's
own way of expressing gratitude to
the government and people of
Cuba for staying the course with I e :t
HIaiti during the traumatic periods
of dislocations from natural and c
nman-made disasters when some
600 Cuban doctors and nurses

Now, as he settles down to
form his new government, Preval
would be conscious that

Understandably, he would also be mindful not to antagonise
domestic and foreign anti-Aristide iforces.e. therefore, has to walk

Preval and his allies could succeed if they are able to achieve the
following, not necessarily in order of priority:

as a personal adviser on Haiti to U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan.
following the ousting in February 2004 of President Aristide from
power, was emphatic that. given the divided state of the Haitian
polity. Preval "needs to be a healer". The circumstances in which


he was elected mean that there are many who remain suspicious of
his relationship with Aristide and would wish him to fail.
Further, as Dumas emphasised, the international community has
to "stop insisting on the application of its developed country ide-
ology to Haiti" and start paying more attention to the views of
grassroots oganisations. non-government organizations that are
recognized for their legitimacy and commitment.
He also agrees on the need for a critical reappraisal of
CARICOM-Haiti relations now
that both sides have, for different
reasons, failed to have
direct contact prior to last
Sunday's inauguration of President
From my personal perspective,
while Preval's official call for heal-
ing and unity is encouraging. the
reality is that he cannot afford to
delay for too long reaching out to
Aristide's Lavalas party whose
support was crucial in his election
as President. Ambivalence on 1his

City residents raise drainage,

other concerns with President

PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday visited Georgetown
communities earmarked for crucial drainage to prevent flood-
ing this rainy season, the Government Infiormation Agency
(GINA) said yesterday.
The Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) has tar-
geted a number of communities for the drainage works ani among
those outlined to the President by Deputy Mayor Roberl Will-
iams were Kingston, Alberttown and Kitty.
According to GINA, at Kingston, Deputy Mayor Robert Will-
iams explained that a $7.2M contract was awarded last week to
fund drainage works in the entire Kingston area. The works he said
would entail desilting drains and maintaining others and should start
next week.
In Alberttown, residents complained that the M&CC has not
been maintaining the drains there. The Deputy Mayor said a drain-
age project was executed by the prisoners, but this was apparently
not done properly.
For works in Kitty, the agency said an $18M contract was
awarded by the M&CC on May 18 to Komal Shakur.
Meanwhile, a pressing concern in Kitty was that of repairing
the market, which has been in a deplorable state for years. GINA
According to the agency, tlie market was scheduled to be re-
paired under the Urban Development Programmne (UDP), but the
munds were not available.
During a visit to the market, the President was told )by
Minister within the Ministry of Local Government and Re-
gional Development, Clinton Collynmore, that he is in receipt
of a proposal from t(lie M&CC to reconstruct the market at a;
cost of $20NM, but no plan was forwarded, GINA stated.
According to the information agency. ('ily Engineer Beverle\
Johnson undertook to have this done. IHoss e\er, the D)eputy lMayr
said that the National Trust is in favour of retaining the architec-
ture of tlhe market, which did not leave mCLuch toomI for chanigeIs.
The President noted that Kitly is a growing area and needs a
modern market and lie will speak to the National Trust.
He also told residents of plans to repair the Kitty rail\\ al em-
bankment in the near future.
GINA added that a pressing concern during tlie I lead of State's
walk-about was the need for house lots, especially for residents of
Kingston. Several citizens who live in derelict buildings requested
that their case be examined and they need to mo\e urgently.
Minister of Housing and Water Shaik Baksh \\ho \\aits also on
the visit, said that two officers from his ministry wouhl be visitingg
thile area next week to conduct a survey of the persons who reiqtlure
house lots and the applications would be processed.
Several residents urged that City streets he repaired and
the President said that many of these would be done under
the UDP, GINA stated.

[ee andARusia. '-,UjefAl Hypocris.

HAD U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney declared during his
visit to Kazakhstan last weekend that "in many areas of civil
society from religion and the news media to advocacy groups
and political parties the government has unfairly and improp-
erly restricted the rights of the people," human rights groups
would have cheered.
But he said that in Russia. a few days earlier. What lie told
Kazakhstan's dictator. Ntrsullan NaZarbayev. was that "all Ameii-
cans are tremendously impressed with the progress that you've
made in Kazakhslan in the last 15 years. Kazakhstan has become a
good friend and strategic partner of the IUnited Staltes."
Admiration for Kazakhstan's progress is not actually a leading
conversational topic in the United Slates. The mian whom the Fi-
nancial Times recently and memorably described as "the Bush
Administration's Lord Voldemort" was merely engaging in a little
useful hypocrisy, or so he imagined. The quIestion is whether it
really is useful.
Cheney's blunt condemnation of the Russian Government's
behaviour certainly roused a vehement reaction in Russia. President
Vladimir Putin's drift towards a "soft dictatorship" has the sup-
port of most Russians, who are still smarting from the anarchy,
corruption and poverty of the first post-Communist decade under
Boris Yeltsin. Now the anarchy has been suppressed, the corrup-
tion is better hidden, and the economy is growing, so the Russian
media's bitter response to Cheney's strictures really did match
popular attitudes.
Under a headline reading 'Enemy at the Gate', the Moscow
business daily Kommersant, normally a critic of the Kremlin, said
that "the Cold War has restarted, only now the front line has
"Komsomolskaya Pravda" asked: "What is Russia to do'? Evi-
dently it needs to strengthen links with Belarus and Central Asia.
And get friendly with China, to counter-balance this Western
might." Over-reactions, of course there is no new Cold War but
Cheney's criticisms would have been more credible and less offen-

sive if hlie were not so obviously applying a double standard.
Ka/akhstan is expected to become one of tlie world's top tell
oil producers in the nexl decade. It is a close ally of the United
States, even sending a small contingent of Kazakli troops to Iraq.
But Kazakhstan is not a democracy (though it observes all the
forms), and Nursulltan Naiarbayev is not a democrat.
When Dick C'iheney became
Secretary of IDefence in lthe admin- i
istration of the elder George Bush
in 1989, Nursultlan Nazarbayev .
was already thile First Secretary of
thie Kazakhli Connutilist Party. By ,
1990, he was president of the i
Kazakli Soviet Socialist Republic
and a menlber of thle Soviet polit- -
buro in Moscow. And by the end |
of 1991 he was the president of an
independent Kazakhstan and a
keen advocate of the free market. .. .
as if his Communist past had been ,
merely an adolescent foible. F
Fifteen years and three "elec- .
tions" later, Nazarbayev is still i-?
president of Kazakhstan, re-elected
only last December with a 91 per /
cent majority in a vote that foreign
observers condemned as fraudu-
lent. His daughter Dariga Nazarbayeva, who controls the Khabar
media conglomerate and leads the "opposition" Asar party, is widely
expected to take power when his current seven-year term expires
in 2010. ("I can't swear it will never happen." she says coyly.)
Nazarbayev's regime does not boil people in oil like that of his
neighbour in Uzbekistan, President Islam Karimov (who was First
Secretary of the Uzbekistan Communist Party in 1989). It is not
as megalomaniacal as the regime olf Prcsident-for-Lil'e Saparmurat

Niya/.ov in Turkiienistan. who has renamed the month of January
afler himself. April after his mother and May after his father.
(Nivazov became First Secretary of the Turkmenistan Com-
munist Party in 1985.)
Among the six 'Stans. Nazarbaycv's Kazakhstan is only the
third- or fourth-worst dictatorship, but it is a far less democratic
and tolerant society than Putin's Russia. So why did Dick Cheney
castigate Russia's iniperfect democracy while saying not a \\word
about Kazakhlstan's shameless travesty of the democratic svsteml?
Oil. obviously, but how could lie be so ignorant of Nazarbayev's
Senior oil company executives know that yot sometimes have
to kiss the nether regions of local potentates in order to make the
deals happen. but they generally only deliver the osculation when
it seems fairly certain that the deal will really go through as a re-
sult. This one won't.
What Cheney wants out of Nazarbayev is commitment to pipe-
lines that will move Kazakh oil and gas to Europe by routes that
do not cross Russia which means pipelines under the Caspian
Sea. But what Nazarbayev wants is a solid American offer that he
can take to the Russians so that he can demand a higher price for
his gas exports to them through the existing pipelines. He will also
take it to the Chinese and suggest that they build pipelines to bring
his oil and gas to China. He has been playing the game at least as
long as Cheney, and lie holds a better hand.
Nursultan Nazarbayev is holding out for the best price, and
the winning bid is unlikely to come from the United States. Cheney's
kow-towing to Nazarbayev is as futile as his chiding of Putin. And
although his hypocritical moralising about the shortcomings of Rus-
sian democracy probably has little direct effect on the calculations
of a strategist as cool as Vladimir Putin, it does poison the rela-
tionship at many other levels. That still matters, because Russia is
coming back as a force in the world.

Crime and Mental Health

Dr. Lear Matthews

AS WE ponder and assess the
crime situation in Guyana,
theories about the causes,
consequences and possible
solutions abound. However,
there is a hidden dimension
of the continuous,
unprecedented violent
assault on the citizenry. The
intangible or indirect costs of
crime are not readily
quantifiable, but require
innovative ways of coping
with what has become a
public health problem, in a
nation that many view as
politically fractured.
Research shows that the
rates of violent crime have
risen substantially in many
countries throughout the
world, including the
Caribbean. Although the
incidences of death and
physical injury are
highlighted, there are also
substantive psychological,
social, and economic costs.
Coping with the
psychological costs, which can
be manifested by fear,
anxiety, frustration,
depression, and anger, is the
focus of this article.
Despite this writer's recent'
visit to Guyana, due to the lack
of informed exposure to the
local scene, the intent here is
not to comment on crime
statistics, nor is it to offer a
political solution. Undoubtedly,
the overwhelming concern about
crime in Guyana, expressed by
residents and immigrants alike,
is not unfounded. From a mental
health perspective, violent crime
and-the-perceived threat of crime
have become critical antecedents
of the emotional state and
consciousness of the nation.

Some people cope by
displaying a certain degree of
fatalism, some make
adjustments in routine
behaviours and interaction with
the environment, while others
become more alert in daily
activities. This was poignantly
demonstrated in conversations
during my visit. An
acquaintance informed me that
should any vehicle follow him
for more than six blocks while
driving, he becomes suspicious
and would detour from his
planned destination. He
convinced me that his actions
are rational and precautionary,
and not a paranoid reaction.
Alarmed over the crime wave at
all levels of society, a young
woman reported that several
family members would not
engage in any outdoor activities
after dark as a way of avoiding
the risk of criminal
victimisation. A young man
indicated that when he enters a
store owned or managed by
persons of an ethnicity other
than his own, he feels the
tension, and becomes guarded.
Overseas Guyanese are
reportedly ambivalent about
visiting their homeland, as they
worry about real or perceived
danger. These examples
demonstrate how widespread
violence interferes with the very
foundation of interpersonal,
familial and social relationships.
Reports in other countries
indicate that indirect costs as a
result of either fear of crime,
exposure to violence, or
following an assault, include:
changes in residence, decreased
participation in social activity,
decreased work productivity,
and unseen losses in local
businesses. In addition, it was
found that fear of crime and

crime-related restrictions on
life-style and behaviours were
higher among women than men,
and for groups that considered
themselves a sociological
minority, i.e. underrepresented
or disenfranchised. Within the
Guyanese context, the latter
finding may be a useful factor
in analysing aspects of the
crime situation, and the search
for practical solutions.
Although the most costly,
direct aspects of violent crime
is generally related to physical
injury, long-term disability and
death, sustained and pervasive
exposure to such assaults
increases the risk of mental
health problems, requiring
interpersonal and social
adjustments. Physical health
may also be compromised.
Various forms of violent crime,
such as homicide and suicide,
according to some studies, are
believed to create severe
emotional, social and economic
costs to victims' families and the
society as a whole.
In order to reduce the
adverse mental health
outcome following exposure
to violence, it is important to
first identify some of the
possible causative factors.
These may include
socioeconomic status, mental
health history, and substance
abuse. A survey of violent
crime in Jamaica found that
the increase in drug use,
drug trafficking, the rise in
street gangs, and the
deportation crisis are among
the most significant
contributors to this problem.
Carl Stone argues that the
destructive effects of these
problems have not only
resulted in increases in social
violence, but with a type of

'barbarism' that is new to the
Caribbean law enforcement
system. It was also noted that
criminal victimisation
invariably results in
disruption in psychological,
cognitive and behavioral
functioning. The extent of
emotional damage is
associated with the nature of
the incident (brutality, place,
media reporting), and the
ability of survivors to cope
(strength of coping skills,
resiliency, personality
factors, support systems).
Although more attention has
been given to high profile,
sensational social killings,
we must not lose sight of the
ongoing incidences of other
violent assaults, which may
be under reported. They all
result in loss, psychological
trauma, and bereavement of
family and friends.
As we deliberate the
incidence and consequences of
violent crimes in Guyana, the
impact on children requires
urgent attention. Of all the
groups exposed to traumatic
violence in society at the
intangible level, children and the
elderly tend to be the most
affected. Some children who are
exposed to violence develop
severe psychological distress.
One study found a strong
correlation between exposure to
violence and symptoms of Post
Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD) and depression among
children and adolescents.
Already experiencing other life
stressors, violence may
undermine their psychological
and social functioning. Research
on the impact of community
violence on American children
indicates that both direct and
vicarious exposure to violent

crime result in various
psychological effects, including
poor concentration, and anxiety
symptoms. It was further noted
that children growing up in
violent communities, tend to be
extremely aggressive and
delinquent, including fighting
and carrying weapons. In
addition, parental roles are
challenged because they too are
distressed by exposure to
violent crime.
Policy-driven, law
enforcement, and political
solutions are all essential in the
attempt to alleviate the crime
situation in Guyana. The inter-
denomination signing of a Code
of Conduct and Peace Pact was
an encouraging gesture, and the
work of the Ethnic Relations
Commission, with effective
leadership can be instrumental in
promoting social harmony. It is
important to note that the
degree of confidence in the
criminal justice system also has
a psychological impact on
feeling protected from, or
vulnerable to violent crime.
While long-term, integrated,

concrete methods of reducing
the rate of violent crime are
important, coping strategies to
mitigate the effects must also be
seriously considered.
At the individual level,
the helping professionals,
including social workers
should be prepared to
facilitate coping strategies in
response to the psychological
effects of violent crime.
Owing to their training and
expertise, these professionals
can offer guidance, crisis
intervention, and support.
Training provided for
counselling those affected by
the flood disaster can be
applied in working with those
traumatised by violence. A
study of elder homicide in
the Caribbean suggested that
for some segments of the
population, the long-lasting
trauma from persistent
societal violence, may lead to
the realisation that the usual,
natural support system (faith

10 ... SUNDAY CHRONICLE, May 21,. 2006

GUYANA, contrary to what the pessimists might want people
to believe, is a blissful land. Other than the occasional bouts
of organised criminal violence and public terror, there are
many positive things to be proud of and to talk much about. I
was reminded (not that I was drowned in the Opposition's over-
flowing cesspool of negativity) of the many good, even great
things going for Guyana and her people during a brief sojourn
in the U.S.
We are too aware that the
Diaspora is very concerned about
developments at home and is
acutely susceptible to rumours and
misinformation. However, I have
found very useful the views ex- S .
pressed and suggestions offered by a
those who are distant and are look-
ing at the situation from afar with
unbiased lenses. ,
Two recent occurrences have
raised the ire of members of the
Diaspora: the PNCR's opposition
objective to obstruct the electoral
process, and the resurrection of
race-based electioneering with help
of an overseas-based political con-
sultant. After a long time, I must
confess that I share fully the alarm by Robel
of the U.S.-based Guyanese com- Persaud, M
The greatest alarm was caused by the seeming insistence of the
PNCR opposition to obstruct and even derail the electoral process
and ultimately undermine Guyana's emerging democracy. This plot
was made clear at a public meeting of the PNCR on May 13 at the
Square of the Revolution where a decision was taken to go the route
of street protest rather than sensible discussions and debate with
the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) on its differences.
After all, there are three Opposition members and a Chairman
nominated by the opposition who sit on the independent elections
But the PNCR opposition is fully aware that it has no real
evidence to substantiate its baseless accusations on the integrity of
the data-base for the voters' list and its unreasonable demand for
house-to-house verification of the 2001 list of electors; hence the
resort to bullying tactics.
The PNCR leadership and its proxies have failed to dispute
the following facts which were made public in the national news-
papers and on the Internet:
The compilation of the 1997 Official List of Electors (OLE)
commenced with an extensive house-to-house registration exercise,
followed by an extended Claims and Objections process.
While all stakeholders were actively involved in various pro-
cesses, each political party in Parliament had scrutineers paid by


GECOM to monitor and evaluate each stage of preparation.
The 1997 OLE was commended as an excellent List of Stake
holders and Political Parties.
The 2001 Preliminary List of Electors (PLE) was basically
the 1997 PLE, subject to another national photographic exercise.
GECOM took a decision that for anyone to be listed on the
2001 OLE that person must turn up at the GECOM Offices and
have his/her photograph taken.
The 2001 OLE, therefore, consisted only of the particu-
lars of electors who had their photographs taken during the
preparations for the 2001 Elections
This exercise was similar to that of a house-to-house
Registration since each had to be photographed.
The 2001 OLE was used as the basis to prepare the
2006 Preliminary List of Electors.
The 2001 OLE was published at the 23 Offices and 4
Sub-Offices from October 2005 to March 19, 2006.
Persons were required to check the lists and undertake
transactions to correct entries. These included Corrections and
Change of Particulars, transfers, and replacement of Identifi-
cation Cards.
Listening to all the speakers at that opposition meeting, it
was clear that everyone read from the same script: everything
must be done to disrupt the electoral process. But this is no
surprise. The various elements share one common objective:
the removal of the PPP/C alliance. They, however, differ on
the mechanism for getting there. Some prefer anarchy. Others
1A want to engineer a power-sharing arrangement so that those
who cannot be elected by the voters can impose themselves
on the nation.
It is clear that those same elements are scared to face the elec-
torate. Sadly, they will be disappointed when they find out that
the democratic train of this country will roll forward and the sen-
sible thing to do is to get on board, now.
The other area of great concern is the attempt to exhume eth-
nic-based electioneering by the AFC group which presents itself as
a new agent of positive political change. The naked attempt to res-
urrect the type of political stratagem, which featured in Guyana's
political life of the 1961-63 periods, reflects the same old dirty and
divisive politics which our people consigned to the dustbins of his-
tory many years ago.
Our history is replete with the human and developmental ca-
sualties resulting from that type of race-based politics. That the
key players in this so-called new movement have themselves been
in politics for over a decade is no excuse to play this type of dis-
carded politics. Any destructive type of electioneering is not auto-
matically made clean by the presence of any campaign expert from
another country. Ethnic-based electioneering and politics can only
take Guyana in one direction downhill!
Let us hope that the leaders in this new group (which is caus-
ing many sleepless nights for the PNCR leadership and the rest of
the opposition by pulling their supporters) rethink their strategy

and act in the interest of unity and stability of this nation.
In the meantime, I hope GECOM takes note of this develop-
ment as the laws forbid any type of race-based electioneering. Also,
the Ethnic Relations Commission must take a keen interest in this
matter before it gets out of hand.
Not only Guyanese here and abroad are monitoring events
closely, but the entire international community. We will be
judged on how we respond in the interest of our country, es-
pecially as we mark the 40th year of our Independence. Ev-
eryone is saying: no ugly shadows, please.

and co-workers) may not be enough to alleviate the distress.
Nevertheless, interaction with these sources of comfort, and
the mutual support they provide should be encouraged as a
way of coping. Talking to others about feelings, values,
attitudes, and thoughts related to the crime situation is
essential. Not only is this cathartic, but it encourages
reciprocal learning about ways of coping. Parents should have
daily conversations with children regarding feelings as a
means of reassurance, and schools can promote environments
where children feel safe. It was found that these mechanisms
enhance children's capacity for self-reflection and coping
skills in risky and dangerous situations.
At the community level, organising the community around
violence prevention activities, and participating in
neighbourhood watch programmes have been beneficial to
violence-ridden environments. Organising support groups also
helps to reestablish a sense of control. Adequately addressing
social problems, such as unemployment, substance abuse,
school drop-out, and focusing on issues of early childhood
development, tends to be instrumental in ameliorating the crime
The above is not a prescription for the immediate
prevention and control of violent crime, nor is it intended
to influence the'decision of Guyanese immigrants to visit
their home country. It brings to the fore consequences that
are often suppressed or ignored. The current trend of
violence in Guyana is a sad reality for thousands of
residents. One does not have to sustain the direct loss of a
loved one to be negatively affected, but what appears to be
the emergence of a culture.of violence could impact the
psychological functioning of many Guyanese. We need to
know more about the social and psychological ramifications
of violent assaults, and collectively face the challenge of
responding effectively to these intangible costs.

ings in Europe CARICOM-
Spain and the European Union
Latin America and the Caribbean
Summits during which the
Community received indications
of strong supportfot r its devel-
opment plans.
The Deputy Secretary-
General noted in particular that
Spain had signalled its interest
in joining the Caribbean Devel-
opment Bank (CDB) through its
announcement of a contribution
to the Bank's Special Develop-
ment Fund and the willingness
expressed in both meetings by
the Europeans to consider sup-
port for the regional Develop-
ment Fund, a key element of the
CARICOM Single Market and
Economy (CSME).
These indications, she said
were timely, given the current
pressures faced by the region in
the aftermath of adverse deci-
sions to the critical agriculture
sector by the EU and the World
Trade Organisation.
The Deputy Secretary-
General noted that "effective
transformation of this sector
is absolutely necessary if we
aire to survive globally."

Herbal Healing An alternative

to drugs and doctors?

By Dennis A. Nichols

MORE than 20 years ago, as
a schoolteacher in Guyana's
North West hinterland, I
came down with an acute case
of conjunctivitis (Red Eye).
Several miles, and hours
away, by corial, to the near-
est Health Centre at
Mabaruma, I remained con-
fined to the teacher's cottage,
alone, disconsolate and virtu-
ally blind. A chance, late af-
ternoon visit by a friend, re-
sulted in her paddling me to
her mother's home upriver,
where I spent the night.
Early next morning, my
friend's mother picked some
dew-fresh leaves from some-
where in her yard. She did. or
said, a brief ritual, before gen-
tly squeezing drops of liquid
from the leaves into my fiery
eyes. She may have repeated
this sometime later; I'm not
sure, but by afternoon there
was some alleviation to my suf-
fering, and by the next day, my
Red Eye was all but gone.
Magic or medicine? Or maybe
Rose or Balm-gentle, two plants
Herbalist Reinaldo Sosa-Gomez
says can do the trick. Since then,
anyway, the power of plants to

heal has intrigued me.
A few months ago, in
Antigua, I met Irene Low, pro-
prietress of The House of Vita-
mins, in the capital, St. John's.
There, in a modest lower half of
a building on Redcliffe Street,
with the throwback ambience of
an ancient apothecary, she pre-
sides over an array of jars,
bottles, vials and brown paper
bags within which, one assumes,
is herbal health. The lady her-
self seems the perfect advertise-
ment for the natural vitamins,
minerals and supplements she
sells and 'prescribes' to her cus-
tomers. In her eighties, she
moves, speaks, reads and writes
without the aid of spectacles,
and with an agility of body and
mind that is remarkable. Occa-
sionally driving to and from
work, she puts in 10- hour- a-
day, six- days- a- week work
routine. She has been engaged in
this occupation for more than 35
years, beginning shortly after
she emigrated from her native
Guyana, in 1969. And to what
does she attribute her good
health and stamina? You guessed
it! a healthy herbal lifestyle
and a professed Christian com-
mitment to live the way, she
says, God intended all humans

to live.
Herbal remedies have been
around for as long as people
have been aware of the need to
treat their bodies' illnesses. In
fact, according to the Millen-
nium Family Encyclopaedia, an-
cient Africans, Europeans and
Asians practised such treat-
ments more than 4,500 years
ago, relying then, on a 'mixture'
of superstition and the observed
effects of their native flora on
human disease. Ancient Egyp-
tians, it said, used raw garlic to
treat tapeworm infestations.
(Many other contemporary cul-
tures thought it was also an ef-
fective treatment for skin prob-
lems and respiratory problems,
and recent scientific studies
show that garlic combats more
than 23 varieties of bacteria and
90 varieties of fungi.) In India,
myrrh was used as an antisep-
tic. The Chinese used celery to
treat arthritis and in Europe,
Coltsfoot was used to alleviate
coughs. Two other widely-used
herbal medicines were the Man-
drake root for infertility and, for
its lauded laxative effects, good
old Castor Oil.
Today, herbal medicine is
part of a much larger move-
ment to treat illnesses with

what is considered by tradi-
tional M.Ds as unorthodox,
and sometimes, dangerous
medicines. This 'alternative
domain' covers a range of
techniques and practices,
from acupuncture to yoga,
and includes homeopathy, re-
flexology, massage therapy
and, of course, herbal medi-
cine/naturopathy. Many of
them embrace a spiritual as-
pect and a more holistic ap-
proach to treating disease.
Mrs. Low often inter-
sperses her layperson's pre-
scriptions to customers, with
advice on spiritual awareness,
growth and reconciliation to
their creator. This spiritual
thread runs through several al-
ternative medicine regimens, ex-
pressed most notably in fasting,
meditation and prayer. Its most
extreme extension may be faith
healing, which excludes all medi-
cal and physical appliances.
Obviously, herbal medicine does
accommodate the ingestion of
substances to treat disease; what
it rejects is the ingestion of
chemicals from pharmaceuti-
cally-manufactured drugs that
are perceived as the stocks-in-
trade of traditional medical doc-

My time in Antigua was too
short for gather enough
knowledge/experience on
Antiguan herbs and plants to in-
clude in this article. I am certain,
however, that there are parallels
between Guyanese and
Antiguan herbs and the way
they are used to treat illnesses.
Some of the following treat-
ments I recall may be familiar to
some Antiguans: birdvine,
blacksage and breadfruit leaf for
high blood pressure, fever grass,
toyo and tulsi for colds and fe-
ver, periwinkle, eucalyptus and
almond nut leaves for diabetes,
St. John's, Man Piaba and gully
root for fibroids and diverse
women's problems, capadulla,
granny backbone and sarsapa-
rilla for men's back problems
associated with lowered virility
and congo pump and ironweed
for kidney ailments.
In Antigua, as in the rest of
the Caribbean, and indeed
throughout the world, the prac-
tice of alternative medicine are
becoming more and more popu-
lar. The main reasons for this
seem to be (a) A growing distrust
of the pharmaceuticals doctors
have been prescribing for their
patients (b) the nasty side ef-
fects some of them produce and
(c) their seeming ineffectiveness
in getting to the root of several
diseases. Finally, there is the ac-
cessibility the ordinary man or
woman has to native herbs and
plants in backyards, in natu-
ral vegetation and increasingly.
in the shops and offices of
growing numbers of herbalists
and naturopaths.
So, is all well in the world
of herbal medicine? Not neces-
sarily. Research. medical doc-
tors, pharmaceutical companies
and even some herbalists point
out that there may be dangers
associated with the use of herbs
and plants as medicines. Recent
BBC-sponsored research

showed that the effectiveness of
alternative treatments is yet to
be proven to the satisfaction of
the majority of medical practi-
tioners in the U.K. Sosa-Gomez
cautions patients that, for cer-
tain illnesses, "nothing can re-
place a diagnosis by a physi-
cian" and that "self-medication
is very dangerous without
knowing the exact origin of the
problems involved." He adds
that care must also be taken
with dosages and the prepara-
tion of herbal extracts, "as some
people may develop allergies
and hypersensitivity to certain
plants." Some plants that need
to be boiled before use, should
not be cooked in aluminiun
pots, as the metal may produce
a toxic reaction in combination
with the chemicals in some
plants when exposed to heat.
Other cautions are born out
of common sense and experi-
ence. For example, some plants
look alike; mistaking one for an-
other and using it in error may
lead to serious complications. 1
recall that many years ago,
some men in the Guyana hinter-
land died after drinking a con-
coction made from the bark of
a tree they mistook for the
popular capadulla bark, thought
to enhance men's sexual po-
These cautions aside,
herbal medicine seems here
to stay. After having been the
first type of treatment used
by humans for the body's ill-
nesses, its resurgence in
semi-modern guise, its popu-
larity and its claims to suc-
cess, should provoke much
research, debate, experimen-
tation and the possibility of a
revolution in the way we re-
spond to human disease; at
the very least, it should give
us solid food for thought -
among other very beneficial

One year since Sawh, Taranauth missing

Family members still hope

sugar workers are alive

A YEAR after two sugar work-
ers vanished while cleaning a
drainage canal aback Vigi-
lance, East Coast Demerara,
family members are still
clinging to the hope that they
are still alive and would one
day return home.

ing a year ago today.
The sugar workers did not
return home from work in the
evening and a search was
launched for them. Only their
lunch bags and bicycles were
found. The men remain missing
despite several joint service
searches in the backlands of
Buxton and neighboring vil-

come of the men. Their families,

however, have mixed feelings about
their fate. Most of them believe that
the men were killed and buried or
burnt alive somewhere, while oth-
ers hope that they are alive.
Two other sugar workers
went missing on September 24,
2005. The men are Sookram

'Sticka' of Lot 270 Non Pariel,
and Hardat, 53, called 'Jogie', of

who were watchmen at the
Lusignan Spring Bridge, left for
work around 14:00 h on Sep-
tember 24, 2005, but failed to
return around the usual time of
06:30 h the following morning.
This created some panic among
family members and teams went
in search of the men.

EXPERTS at an Organization
of American States (OAS) fo-
rum have concluded that de-
spite major challenges to free-
dom of expression in the
Americas, significant progress
is being made.
They noted positive devel-
opments, such as more countries
introducing access-to-informa-
tion laws, but lamented that
more journalists are being killed
in connection with their duties
and that challenges continue to
threaten the consolidation of de-
mocracy in the Americas.
The President of the Inter-
American Press Association
(1APA). Diana Daniels. who is
also Vice President of the Wash-
ington Post Company, attributed
some of the progress to "the
greater availability of informa-
tion, better access to informa-
tion, more in-depth reporting,
and the wider dissemination of
Speaking Friday on a panel
discussion on "Freedom of Ex-
pression in the 21st Century in


the Americas," the seventh event
in The Americas Project series,
Daniels asserted that "a-
country's degree of democracy
is directly the
level of press freedom that ex-
ists there."
The Americas Project is a
joint initiative with Rice
University's James A. Baker III
Institute for Public Policy. The
annual Americas Project, which
began in 1997, is part of the
institute's effort to increase
awareness of Latin American is-
sues. It provides a leadership fo-

litical, and cultural pacesetters

for greater effort by governments

Another panelist, journalist

Pablo Bachelet of the Miami

noted that "political instability,
institutional weakness, and soar-

Secretary of the OAS Inter-
American Commission on Hu-

gave an overview of initiatives
through the inter-American sys-
tem and the main challenges for
the protection of the right to free-
dom of expression. He too wel-
comed some of the positive de-
velopments, among them the re-
pealing of contempt laws in nine
OAS member countries.
This is "an acknowledgement
that these laws are incompatible
with the right to freedom of ex-
pression," Canton stressed.
He continued: "Trinidad and
Tobago, Mexico. Panama, Peru.
Jamaica, Ecuador and the Do-
minican Republic have approved
key laws providing access to

public information, or substan-
tial advances to guarantee this
important right." The Inter-
American Commission on Hu-
man Rights played a critical role
in many of these cases, Canton
Canton noted that the num-
ber of journalists killed in the
region fell from eleven in 2004
to five in 2005, but expressed
concern that thus far in 2006,
four have been killed, one dis-
appeared and two have been
forced to flee their countries.
Many others have been at-

UG students help

slain security

guard's family

A GROUP of Second Year University of Guyana (UG) So-
cial Works students yesterday presented Rehanna Haywood,
wife of slain security guard Curtis Robertson, with a food
hamper to help meet her needs.
The donation, which was made at her Leopold Street home,
consisted of foodstuff, clothing and school items such as exer-
cise books.
Haywood yesterday said that several other persons and
organizations, both in Guyana and overseas, have come forward
and given their assistance.
She also received a house lot from the Government.
Bernard Pratt of the university group said that he read about
the situation in the newspaper and decided that something must
be done to help. He said contact was made with the other stu-
dents of the class and it was decided that a presentation would
be made.
The group also made a cash donation to Haywood, a mother
of seven children.
Curtis Robertson was slain along with Minister of Fisher-
ies, Crops and Other Livestock Mr. Satyadeow Sawh and two
of his siblings last month when gunmen invaded Sawh's La
Bonne Intention (LBI), East Coast Demerara home.
Two of Sawh's siblings, Rajpat Rai Sawh and Pulmattie
Persaud, were also killed in the attack which occurred on the
morning of April 22.
The police are yet to make an arrest in the case and
have blamed this on the lack of 'hard intelligence'.

Caucus and Regional Advisory
Board Meetings on 22-23 May.
"We are looking forward to
meeting in The Bahamas and to
our voices being heard as youth
of the region," said Norman
Gilbert. Regional Youth Caucus
Coordinator for the Caribbean
Region. "We are also looking
forward to understanding how
we as youth can help in
achieving the objectives of the
Plan of Action for Youth
Empowerment. and in so doing
address the many problems
facing our youth."
Secretary General, Don
McKinnon noted that "It is a
present-day tragedy that over
half a billion young people
[aged 15-29] in the
Commonwealth are living on
less than a dollar a day."
"When you add that
statistic with the worldwide
statistics that 130 million young
people are illiterate, 88 million
are unemployed and 10 million
are living with HIV/AIDS. in
many ways, prospects for
young people have never looked

so grim.
"Saying that, good things
are happening in the
Commonwealth." continued Mr.
McKinnon. "Our
Commonwealth Youth
Programme is an international
leader in creating youth-
enterprise and employment,
training young people. giving
young people a voice through
national youth councils and
raising awareness in areas like
HIV/AIDS where we run a
highly successful Youth
Ambassadors for Positive
On these issues of youth
poverty, HIV/AIDS and crime,
the Commonwealth
Secretariat is working with
the United Nations to develop
a Youth Development Index,
along the lines of the UN's
Human Development Index.
The implementation of this
index would assist in
measuring the effect of
investment in the fight
against youth poverty, HIV/
AIDS and crime. The index
would also provide invaluable

data on other key issues such
as population, education,
employment, health,
environment, drug abuse and
This will be the second
Commonwealth .Youth
Ministers Meeting where
young people will have the
opportunity to participate in
meetings alongside youth
ministers. The idea to give
national youth representatives a
seat at ministerial meetings was
piloted at the last meeting of
Commonwealth Youth
Ministers in Botswana in 2003.
The young delegates will be able
to make direct interventions and
fully participate in the meetings
at the discretion of the head of
their national delegation.
The Official Opening of
the meeting will take place
at the Wyndham Resort
Ballroom on Tuesday, May
23, at 18:00 hours.. Speeches
will be given by the Prime
Minister of The Bahamas,

MTV shows off

J. Los 'Moves'

By Sarah Hall
E!Online MTV is impressed
by Jennifer Lopez's 'Moves'.
The network has given the
greenlight to a new dance-based
reality series executive produced'
by the multihyphenate diva.
In something of a Real
World meets Solid Gold
premise, the show will follow
the lives of six aspiring dancers
as they struggle to make it in the
competitive world of profes-
sional dance.
The smooth-moving hope-
fuls include Staci, a former
Pussycat Doll who wants to be-
come a singer; Jersey, who
hopes her dance moves will el-
evate her out of debt; Nolan,
who has struggled with personal
problems to make it to where he
is now; Blake, the cocky guy,
who makes sure everyone is
well aware of his prowess on the
dance floor: Kenny, a former
baseball player and heavy party
animal; and Celestina, who
thinks of dancing as the first
step in building her own hip-
hop empire.
"There are very few people
who have attained the level of
success Jennifer has. Across
music, film and more, she is
recognized worldwide, and it all
began with dance," Lois Curren.
MTV's executive vice president
of entertainment and program-
ming, said in a statement.
"Now she will share her ex-
perience and knowledge with a
new generation of dancers, and
we'll find out if they have what
it takes to stand up to her ex-

Lopez, who took an active
role in selecting the show's par-
ticipants, is also slated to make
cameo appearances over the
course of the season.
"I started out as a dancer
and I know what that world is,"
Lopez said in a statement.
"These dancers have dedicated
their lives to this and, honestly,
the glory is not always there.
It's something they do only out
of love. It's a tough life and I
want to show that struggle."
The show's eight-episode
run is scheduled to kick off this
Meanwhile, if the rumour
mill is to be believed which J.
Lo's camp insists it isn't the
singer-actress might currently
have another project in the
works. Call it a joint production
with husband Marc Anthony, if
you will.
In Touch magazine reports
in its latest issue that Lopez is
three months pregnant and ex-
pecting her first child in Decem-
Signs of her supposed preg-
nancy include a so-called belly
bulge and visible gray roots an
indication that she may be
avoiding dying her hair at the
advice of her doctor.
Fueling suspicions even
more, Lopez recently called off
her world tour scheduled for
this spring, according to a state-
ment posted by Mirage Promo-
tions on its Website.
Even so, reps for the Mon-
ster-in-Law star maintain
she is not in the family way.

Deadly bird flu

spreads in

Burkina Faso
OUAGADOUGOU, (Reuters) Burkina Faso is preparing
to cull more poultry after the highly pathogenic H5NI
strain of bird flu first detected near the capital last month
spread to two more towns, the government said late on Fri-
The disease had been confirmed in Bobo-Dioulasso, the sec-
ond cily some 360 km (220 miles) west of the capital
O)iagadougou, and in Sahou, around 100 km west of the capi-
tal. the government said. A new outbreak had also been found
in Ouagadougon ilsellf.
The impoverished West Aincan nation iislt confirmed in
early April that it had found the virus in poultry at a molel on
the outskirts of Ouagadougou. It has since isolated the area and
culled birds within a 3 km (2-mile) radius.
"The original site hias bheen disinfected. But the mncasures
will be stepped up and thile same ones will be taken at tlie new
sites," Animal Resources Minister Tienioko Konate told report

Alonzo Greaves repeated last
year's feat and won the sec-
ond stage of the annual Inde-
pendence Three Stage cycle
road race yesterday, to take
the lead.
The teenager has a 55-sec-
ond lead over defending cham-
pion Dwayne Gibbs and a two-
second lead over 2005 cham-
pion Andrew Reece who is sec-
ond overall.
Greaves clocked two hours
34 minutes 23 seconds, more
than a minute slower than last
year's 2:33:22 hours to cover
the 96-kilometre course.

MADRID, Spain (Reuters) -
Barcelona striker Samuel
Eto'o crowned a memorable
season by finishing as the
Primera Liga's top marks-
man with 26 goals as he
scored in his side's 3-1 defeat
at Athletic Bilbao yesterday.
The Cameroon international
missed out on the honour last
year when Villarreal's Diego
Forlan pipped him at the post
on the last day of the season.
Eto'o, who also scored in
Wednesday's 2-1 Champions
League final win over Arsenal,
started the day level with Valencia's
David Villa on 25 goals.
He netted after 36 min-
utes to put his weakened side
ahead in their rescheduled
last game of the season
though the Basques scored
three times after the break to
take the points.
The European and Spanish
champions finished their league
campaign on 82 points, 12 clear
of second-placed Real Madrid.
After a season spent fighting
against relegation Bilbao climbed
to 12th.
The game had a true end-of-
season feel about it with Barca
already crowned champions and
Bilbao safe from relegation and
out of the running for the Euro-
pean places.
The visitors were shorn of
first-team regulars such as
Ronaldinho, Deco, Caries Puyol
and Rafael Marquez.
Part of FIFA's ruling that al-
lowed the delayed match to take
place after the May 15 deadline
set for the end of the league sea-
son was that international play-
crs involved in next month's

2:34:55 hours.
Eon Jackson led the main
bunch, all clocking 2:35:16 hours
as some 38 of 53 starters fin-
ished the second stage from
Rosignol Ferry Stelling to
Carifesta Avenue in
Junior Niles also repeated
last year's performance by again
winning the first stage from
Corriverton to New
Amsterdam, with five-time
champion Dwayne Gibbs sec-
ond, Jude Bently third, Greaves
fourth, Caribbean distance cham-
pion Marion Williams fifth,
Raymond Newtown sixth and
Allen seventh.
But over 30 riders clocked
the same time for the 75-
kilometre stage for which there
were 72 starters and 53 finish-
Therefore, with the bonus

from competing.
Despite the side's unfamil-
iar look the Catalans had the
best of the opening period with
Argentine striker Maxi Lopez
striking a post after 14 minutes.
Eto'o was by far the most
active player on the pitch as he
went in search of his goal and


had already been denied by
home goalkeeper Inaki Lafuente
in the 17th minute when he put
Barca in front.
Receiving the ball with his
back to goal on the edge of the
area he spun clear of his marker

NEW YORK, NY (Reuters) -
Rasheed Wallace scored 24
points and the Detroit Pistons
got three key offensive re-
bounds in the dying seconds
to edge the Cleveland Cava-
liers 84-82 in National Bas-
ketball Association play, Fri-
day, in Cleveland.
Richard Hamilton added 17
points for the Pistons, who
forced a seventh and deciding
game in the best-of-seven series
today at Auburn Hills.
In Dallas, Manu Ginobili
scored 30 points and had 10 re-
bounds as the defending NBA
champions San Antonio Spurs
stayed alive in the Western
Conference with a 91-86 win in
their Game Six.
That best of-seven series is
tied 3-3, with Game Seven in
San Antonio tomorrow night.
Phoenix and the Los Angeles
Clippers are tied 3-3 in the other
West series.
The winner of the best-of-
seven Eastern Conference final
will play the Miami Heat for a
berth in the NBA Finals.
The two-time defending
Eastern Conference champions
needed three offensive rebounds
in the final minute after three
misses and a key foul shot by

Chauncey Billups to finally put
away the stubborn Cavaliers and
deny them the series upset.
"We knew we had to come

"They beat us three straight
times, the only team to do that

It was with great disappointment that I read "Guyana out
of CAC hockey competition" in the Guyana Chronicle, Sat-
urday May 20, 2006.
Surely this revelation must put a severe dent in the morale
of our local hockey players, who have been training hard in
anticipation of a chance to showcase their skills at the CAC
Games in Columbia. I know the Guyana Ilockev Board (GIB)
has invested a lot of time and resources in training and fund-
raising for the squad. I have personally witnessed many of the
practice sessions at the Everest Cricket Club Ground and the
dedication of the players and administrators is unquestionable.
According to President of the GH1B. Mr. Phillip
F'ernandes. the exclusion was due to our "absence for more than
10 (ten) years from international field hockey" resulting in
Guyana slipping to the hbolton of thie rankings in the 'CAC
Zone. Naturally. ithai absence was duei to linanciil c)onstraiinis.

Richards has urged Kevin
Pietersen to stick to his un-
orthodox style in order to re-
main one of the world's top
"Pietersen is really exciting,
and that sort of player gets
people through the turnstiles,"
said Richards.
"In the future, he needs to
keep on being as positive as he
is. I'd also say to him 'Just
chill out a bit' and have a bit
less of the talk.
"This game has a way of
kicking you big time when you
least expect it."
Pietersen has made a mag-
nificent start to his international
career, scoring 1 048 runs in
only 12 Test appearances at an
average of 47 and 1 179 in 30
one-dayers with a strike rate of
98 runs per 100 balls.
And his tendency to whip
balls away through the leg-
side has led to comparisons
with Richards, who retired in
"I've always thought the
idea of playing the ball in a cor-
rect way is rubbish and I don't
believe it works," said the West

"I'm going to work on ev-
erything next week and tighten
things up. I've come a long way
since the first round here. so all
I can do is go up."
Hingis no\w has a chance to
claim her first title since w\in-
ning in Tokyo more than four
years ago. She beat Safina in
straight sets in the quarter-finals
at Indian Wells this year.
"1 played her already this

"Batsmanship is all about
scoring runs and going past
fielders. You need to find gaps
and play the ball where you
want it to be played.
"Pietersen does that. He
doesn't muck around and I re-
ally like that."
An innings of 158 against
Sri Lanka at Lord's last week
equalled Pietersen's best Test
score and he will again be a
key figure for England when
the two sides meet again at

partner to the indefatigable
Makhaya Ntini. Donald told the
Supersport website, "Maybe it
was a case of bringing him
(Steyn) in too soon against En-
gland last season, but against
New Zealand Dale Steyn has
shown us what he can do. For
the first time South Africa have
two bowlers who can strike at
140 kmph-plus."
Together Ntini and Steyn
took 36 wickets between
them to lead South Africa to
a comprehensive 2-0 series
win against New Zealand.

Stephen Fleming, the Kiwi
captain, pointed to their suc-
cess and pace as the major
difference between the two
sides. The pair also shared all
ten wickets in the second in-
nings of the first Test at Cen-
turion when the tourists were
dismissed for 120.
Their success, however,
prompted questions of the role
of Pollock, who was no longer
taking the new ball. Donald
pondered, "Shaun Pollock's role
is the question.

to the World Cup?"
Pollock missed one Test
through injury and only picked
up five wickets in the two that
he played against New Zealand.
Though he was as miserly as
ever, and more economical than
both Ntini and Steyn, his strike
rate (48 balls per wicket) was
considerably lower than both.
The performance is part of a re-
cent pattern that has sparked
debate about his role: in his last
20 Tests. Pollock has taken 64
wickets at over 33 and a strike
rate as high as 74.5. He hasn't
taken a single five-wicket in-
nings haul or ten-wicket match
Donald admitted it is a dif-
ficult situation, though he hinted
that all hope was not lost just
yet. "Those are tough questions.
"It is a serious issue, and
it will become more serious
as the months roll on. We've
seen the selectors make a
positive move with the new
ball, and Shaun has fitted in
beautifully. (Cricinfo)

England coach Duncan

Sajid showed us he had raw

Devastators knocked out of

third-division competition

By Faizool Deo

EAST Coast team, Devasta-
tors, made the first exit in the
Bounty Colts, Cole 'n' Roses
first and third divisions' tour-
nament on Friday night at
the Cliff Anderson Sports
Hall, when they suffered a
blow-out to the hands of
Colts' third-division side.
The Devastators who are
yet to confirm themselves as
nothing but whipping boys at
all levels lost by 18 points, 79-
The feature clash, one of a
first-division nature between
Colts and Pepsi Sonics, failed to
take place, resulting in an exhi-
bition game between the
organizers and the Nets, with
the latter recording a victory.
The third-division team,
who advanced to the next round.
traded points with the D)evas-
tators in the opening minutes of
game one, but both teams were
guilty of making some unneces-
sary turnovers. Colts' Trevor
Rose entered the game with 14
minutes left in the half (20 min-
utes per half). and hit a lonhg
shot. while sending a half court
assist to spark an eight-nil run.
But gulsy power-plays by
Dexter Walcoll and runaway
buckets by East Coast point-
guard Evan Joaquin brought
them back into the game. Colts
regrouped and executed better
in the paint to surge ahead 37-
23 at the half.
In the second, the East
Coast team through Joaquin and
shooting guard Michael Chase
cut the lead by eight. 50-42
(10:12 left), with both using
their fast legs to penetrate the
basket, but Colts regained com-
posure especially with the re-
entry of their technically correct
forward Cleon Mitchell.
Mitchell scored numerous
lay-ups, as Colts led by as many
as 23 down the stretch.
Joaquin, however, fired one
from way down-town to cut his

team's deficit before the final
whistle blew.
Kacey Bowen led the way
with 19, while Mitchell scored
17 and Darwin Murray who had
a good second half 14 for the
Colls. For the Devastators.
Joaquin finished with a game-
high 20 while Chase had 18 and
Walcott 15.
In the feature clash. Colts
power forward/ centre, Kelvin
Simon, known for his domi-
nance in the paint, sank a three-
pointer at the buzzer at the end
of regulation (76-all) to send the
game into overtinic.
The Nets, whlo had the edge
through all tlie quarters, clinched
the game 91-86.
Jermaine McAllister had a
big night. Not only did lie guard
the ball well. but lie scored a
whopping 35 points, while
Fabian Johnson scored 19 and
Triston Tulloch 17.
Simon led Colts with 24
points, while Mark Trotz and
Clarence Bennett assisted
with 17 and 16 points.

Colts' Cleon Mitchell shoots and scores over a strong
Devastators defence.

Sherry Bollers-Dixon
HE'S on a one-woman self-destruct
mission. But how do you support your
mate without going under yourself?
It's 10pm on Wednesday night, and you should be sitting
on your sofa watching the latest episode of 'Desperate House-
wives' or one of your favour soaps. Except you're not! Instead,
you're out on the town, watching your friend down yet an-
other vodka and patiently listening to her latest tale of woe.
You just know that, by closing time, she'll be drunk and danc-
ing on the bar like a Coyote Ugly reject. And tomorrow morn-
ing, it'll be your job to pick up the pieces, reassure her it's OK
and do it all again on Saturday night.
Most of us have a Car Crash Friend (CCF) at some point
in our lives. A CCF is someone who, to the outside world, looks
like they are having a ball, but those wild antics leave their
friends exhausted because their need for support is greater than
their ability to
Maybe your CCF is someone you bonded with because she
was such a laugh, or an old friend who has suddenly started
going through men like you go through tights. One thing's for
sure though: she attracts messy situations like a magnet and, as
her friend, you feel involved and maybe even a bit responsible
for her. Maybe it's worse than having someone like Halle Berry
on your conscience, who seems to go through as many bad boys
as she does nightclub doors.
But why do some women seem desperate to sabotage their
Often, CCFs put themselves in an extreme situation
because they want your attention says psychologist, Tony
Nelson. Anything can push them to it from a bad break-
up, to losing their job. If they can't talk about what's actu-
ally bothering them, they may behave badly to create a cri-
sis as a cry for your help.
But, the good news is you can support a friend through a
car-crash phase. The tricky part is getting the right balance be-
tween helping, but not over-supporting her, so she either be-
comes reliant on you or resents your input says Mr. Nelson.
Read on and sail through when a car crash hits.
The party animal CCF
When my friend Jackie got promoted, her new banking job
was so high-pressured, she went out every night and got
wrecked just so she could sleep at night says Justine, 28. I went
from being her party-partner to not being able to keep up with
her. When my daily hangovers began to affect my work, I de-
cided enough was enough and stopped seeing her in the eve-
nings until she calmed down.
You don't want to desert a friend when she needs you most,
but you don't want her to drag you down with her, either. It's
horrible to see someone you care about falling apart. It's natu-
ral to want to nurture them through this difficult time. But if
that involves doing something you don't want to, like going out
relentlessly, this is the road to madness.
How do you say no without causing offence? If your
mum was on a diet, you wouldn't offer her a cream cake
or dumplings and patties, would you? The same applies
here. If your CCF drinks too much, meet for a coffee in-
stead of in a bar.
The key is to be available and offer support. Just make it
clear that support doesn't mean I'll get drunk with you until
lam every morning. And if her partying is really getting out of
hand and you're, worried she could be damaging her reputation
or health, it could be time to get harsh. She may not even realise
she's out of control.
The 'be my rock' CCF
After Rachel split form her boyfriend of two years, 1 used
to dread her Saturday morning call says Alison, 30. Every week



was the same; a tale about shagging a random guy, followed by
an hour of her sobbing that everyone thought she was a slag
and me consoling her that she wasn't. In the end, I had to tell
her I couldn't stand seeing her do this to herself (or me) any-
more. Thankfully that snapped her out of it.
This is learned helplessness says Nelson. Your friend has
learnt she can treat conversations with you like therapy. But
while you may get a buzz out of being helpful initially, it's emo-
tionally exhausting.
Remember, even if your friend is going through a hard
time, conversations should never be more than 70 per cent
about her. If not, you need to claw back some of your time,
so you're getting something from the friendship, says
Nelson. Tell her what's worrying you about your life.
You're trying to out-do her in the Tve had a harder time
stakes', but you need to get a balance in your friendship
for both your sakes.
Refocusing your CCFs attention on someone other than her-
self will muffle her inner drama queen and remind her she's a
grown-up who can handle her life. You don't want to end up
subconsciously angry at her or being Miss Me, Me, Me, Me,
or you might find yourself taking that out on her by bitching to
another friend.
Another idea? Take control by saying what day and time
you'll call her, advises Nelson. This lets her know you're there
for her, but on your terms. And. you can dictate when you see
her, rather than having her ring you five times a night.
The beyond help CCF
She's got involved with a guy who treats her badly. You
give her advice..She listens but ignores you and stays with him,
then uses your entire tissue supply when things go wrong. A
month later? She's bastard-hopped and the whole cycle 'tarts
again. My friend Rebecca is a terrible Car Crash Friend, sayi ;.
Roxanne, 32. She picked all the wrong men, hit the pub harder
than anyone else and shopped for England, then had nomohey .
to pay the rent. I felt bad for her, but it was hard to be syinpa- .
thetic when I offered her suggestions and she just kept repeat-
~~l~. _L-h~Y~l J IP-IIC-WY


ing her behaviour.
If your friend is crashing because of an event, it's easier to
bite your tongue and stand by her while she gets through it.
But if she's a permanent mess, you could be locked into a pat-

tern, which isbad for both of you.
If you're trying to help and she's not taking that on board,
it could be time to encourage her to get help elsewhere. It won't
be easy but sit her down and explain how you are feeling. Tell
her you see what's she going through but you've offered her all
the advice you can and you are concerned your help won't get
her through. Do your research and give her options about where
she can get advice, whether it's from her doctor, HR depait-
ment or a counsellor. Don't drop the bomb then ditch her. If
she's heading to the doctor, offer to go along too. Do this and
you'll stop her bleeding your energy reserves dry, but also show
you're not giving up on her.

If your friend has been through a genuinely hor-
rible trauma, like losing a parent, and she's dealing
with it by going off the rails, stand by her until she
Sticks her car-crash phase. All traumas have a sell by
S'date. While she comes to terms with hers, you have
to accept that she'll take and you will give. There's

Dr. Kenneth Robinson. a
native of Staten Island, New
York, and his Guyanese-born
wife Dr. June Robinson, united
in a spirit-jolting empowerment
drive. They met in the United
States of America and their part-
nership began while they were
ministering in revival services
overseas. They were married 20
years ago. Through the years
they have obtained much
knowledge in biblical and finan-
cial studies.
The Robinsons' strong be-
lief in lasting vision, covenant,
family and finances is the cata-
lyst for their teamwork, which
they believe is to bring restora-
tion through Jesus Christ to

their generation. They founded
Restoring Life International
Church in January 1991.
From opening night, the
Robinsons advanced biblical
perspectives that coincide
with practical living "to equip
men, women and youth with
the tools to influence gen-
erations, encourage personal
growth and development
through empowerment and
empower families to
maximise their potential."
They dissected issues such
as man among men. focusing on
manhood; men and money.

cently told the Sunday

periencing heaven in the home
- Husbands, your wife is not
your mother (your headship is
a servant leadership position);
Wives, your husband is not
your daddy (man does not give
you your value, your value

generation to generation."
They added. "The family

think of bad
breath also
known as halitosis as
an adult problem. So
it's always a shocker
when parents smell foul
breath coming from
their little angel. If it
persists, they often
worry that something is
seriously wrong with
their child. As one
mother said to me
recently, "I'm afraid
that my child is rotting
It's true that chronic bad
breath in adults can be an omi-

nous sign, which in extreme
cases can even indicate stomach
cancer. But in children, though.
halitosis is hardly ever con-
nected with anything that seri-
ous. A study published in the
March 2004 issue of the Jour-
nal of Pediatrics reveals that
most bad breath in children
comes either from the mouth it-
self or from the nasal cavity.
There are several things in
the oral and nasal cavities that
can cause bad breath in kids.
The most common cause
is simply poor dental hygiene.
Bacteria feeding on stagnant
saliva and food particles are
the cause of classic "morning

breath." And we all know that
morning breath can turn into
"afternoon and evening breath"
if your child doesn't get a good
tooth and tongue brushing in
the morning and at night.
Sometimes food particles get
caught in little crypts in the
tonsils. This too can cause foul
Tooth decay can also be a
culprit. If the decay hasn't yet
affected the dental root, your
child won't experience pain but
may just have smelly breath.
Both acute and chronic si-
nusitis have been associated
with bad breath. In these cases,
though, bad breath isn't the only

symptom. Sinusitis is usually
accompanied by a daytime and
nighttime cough and possibly a
fever, face swelling, or a thick
yellow-green nasal discharge.
Bad breath can signal
pharyngitis a throat infection.
Usually your child will also
complain of a sore throat. As
with sinusitis, the odour is prob-
ably coming from the bacterial
infection itself and from bacte-
ria feeding on stagnant saliva be-
cause your child is mouth-
Seasonal allergies could be
the cause. Allergies can cause
pooling of mucus in the back of
the throat postnasall drip).
which can be accompanied by
halitosis. In this case your child
may also complain of such
symptoms as a dry cough
which gets worse at night, itchy
eyes, and a runny nose.

The Dentist Advises

Finally, it's practically a
rite of passage for a child to
shove something typically a
corn kernel, a pea, or a dime -
up into his or her nose. If this
foreign body is left there, it can
begin to rot or cause a surround-
ing infection. In this instance the
bad smell will come predomi-
nantly from the nose and not the

1. First of all, try not to
make your child feel self-con-
scious. Children will have lots
of time as they grow older to
obsess about bad breath, and
there's no need to get them
started prematurely. Instead,
use this as an opportunity to
teach your child good self-care
habits. Explain that washing
teeth is as necessary as wash-
ing other parts of the body.

2. Let your child pick out a
toothbrush and toothpaste. Just
make sure that the toothbrush
has soft or medium bristles and
is small enough for the child's
mouth. The toothpaste should
contain fluoride. Commercial
mouthwashes and breath-fresh-
ener lozenges are poor substi-
tutes for brushing teeth and are
not recommended for kids.

3. Supervise your child's
tooth brushing twice a day,
something many parents over-
look in the rush to get out the
door in the morning or to get

kids in bed at.night. Brushing
your teeth with your children is
a good way to teach them how
to do it properly.

4. Once any two of your
child's teeth touch, you should
start them on flossing, says the
American Dental Association
(ADA). This will make gums
healthier and remove decaying
food particles.

5. If you see food caught in
your child's tonsils, have him or
her try gargling with warm wa-
ter to dislodge the food.

6. Make sure that your child
gets regular dental checkups, at
least once a year beginning with
his or her first birthday, recom-
mends the ADA.
If you suspect that your
child has shoved something
up his nose, then contact
your health provider for
further advice. Generally it
isn't a great idea for par-
ents to try to fish out the
object, because they usu-
ally succeed only in shoving
it further up the nostril. If
bad breath doesn't go away
with careful dental hy-
giene, consult your dentist.
If the bad breath is accom-
panied by a cough-that lasts
more than 10 to 12 days or
by a fever or thick nasal dis-
charge, then contact your
health provider.

By George Barclay

IN 1966, local pool-
player Lawrence
Bart suffered a set
back when his winning
coupon relating to the
English Football Pool
was allegedly delayed
by an air carrier in
As a consequence, the win-
ning coupon was ever counted
and resulted in Bart taking the
carrier to court for negligence
and breach of contract.
The trial juge had found in
favour of Bart granting him $40,
000 damages.
But on appeal, the Appel-
late Court, which was presided
over by Chancellor E.V.
Luckhoo and which included
Chief Justice iH.B. S. Boilers
and Justice of Appeal Kenneth
Stoby, allowed the appeal by
The Appellate Court had
also ordered Bart to pay costs
to the appellants, BWIA.
At the hearing of the appeal,
Mr. Michael Kerr, Q.C (of the
English Bar) with Mr. J. A. King
appeared for the appellants
while Mr. J.O. F. Haynes, S.C.
represented the defendant.
The facts of the case dis-
closed that Lawrence Andrew
Bart sued British West Indian
Airways Limited for 30, 000
pounds damages for negligence,

of contract. The trial judge
awarded him 10 000 pounds
with costs.
BWIA, on appeal, asked
the court to set aside that judg-
ment; in the alternative to find
that only nominal damages, if at
all, should have been allowed.
Justice of Appeal Luckhoo,
in his judgment, said the facts
are not without interest and
matters of some importance af-
fecting the carriage of cargo by
air arise.
According to him the popu-
lar past-time of playing football
pools in countries far removed
from Britain, where the games
are played and the pools com-
puted, is made possible by the
carriage of coupons by air,
which must arrive at a certain
time if they are to be reckoned
in a particular pool.
Justice Luckhoo explained,
"Sherman's Pools Ltd., of

Cardiff (called Sherman's),
among other promoters, provide
facilities in this country de-
signed to enable pool players to
participate. Their representative
here at the material times was
S.E. Lee and Co. Limited (re-
ferred to as Lee), described in
evidence as "Concessionaires
and agents of Sherman's".

sary to cover the number of

paid by Bart to Lee for send-

Ronald Anthony Willock, filled
in the consignment hote or air-

"At the bottom of the con-

is what the shipper expected.
On Friday, 19 February,
a signal came from Piarco ad-
vising that the particular pas-
sage did not arrive as mani-
fested. Enquiries were made
by Willock who was advised
that the package was defi-
nitely sent on the February

It was revealed that while

was still in Guyana in the pos-

age did not catch the particular

The judgment concluded by
Chancellor Luckhoo stating: "I
must find that there was no
privity of contract between
Bart and BWIA; that Lee was
not an agent for Bart, an undis-
closed principal, to malk a con-
tract with BWIA on his (Bart's)
behalf, that Bart, not being the
consignor or consignee; under
the contract of carriage, was de-
prived by the Order in Cbuncil
of the right to bring:any suit
against BWIA, that the Order in
Council only created liability
against the carrier for1loss of or
damage to the package (which
did not happen) and for delay
(which did not occut) beyond
the period of seven days) before
which rights under the contract
of carriage could be enforced;
that in any event liability would
have been limited, and that Bart
had not proved that he had suf-
fered any loss or damage
through any delay on the evi-
dence of his own witness.
"I must therefore allow the
appeal and set aside the judg-
ment of the court below with
costs there and here to the ap-
pellant certified fit for two coun-
sel. Appeal allowed.
Lawyers view this case,
British West Indian Airways v
Bart (1966) 11 WIR 378 as a
very important case wlich de-
termined the respective rights of
a carrier, a consignor and the
party on whose behalf the con-
signor had acted.
It also dealt with the status
of the consignor's customer as
a sub-bailee entitled to sue
BWIA, the exemption clause in
the consignment n6te funda-
mental breach, privity of con-
tract and damages.
These wide ranging issues
make this one of the most im-
portant cases dealt with by the

Warm congratulations from all at Tigerwood to the Barama Company Ltd for their record-setting achievement in gaining the prestigious
environmental status of Forest Stewardship Council (1 SC) certification.

The Tigerwood Group, a global timber trading entity, has worked with the Barama Company for more than a decade. Tim A hworlr-lFoster,
Tigerwood's CEO, praised the Barama Company for its landmark achievement.

"The certification illustrates the Barama Company's commitment to Guyana and to the global forest industry and it put& Gut-affrin the
forefront of responsible and sustainable forest management," said Mr ,shworth-lFostcr.

"W\e join all those who attended the March 27 celebration ceremony at the Cara Lodge, Georgetown, in congratulating the Barania.Company
on its success in achieving FSC certification."

Literary Impulses in Guyanese

Literature before Independence

by Petamber Persaud
b o o k ,
GUIANA, fired the
imagination of
European nations,
propelling many people
to come to Guyana in
search of El Dorado,
some finding various
versions of The City of
Gold which they
captured in the treasure
houses of books.
So the earlier writings on or
about Guyana comprised
mainly travelogues, journals and

But the literary impulses of
writers also surfaced during the
early period of our history, guid-
ing many to distil their findings
and their thoughts in poetic and
fictional outpourings.
An example of the 'marriage
between modes of literature and
reportage' is to be found in the
circumstances surrounding the
publication in 1877 of the first
novel on Guyana,
That novel came into being when
its author, Edward Jenkins, dis-
covered that his report, 'The
Coolie: His Rights and Wrongs',
in British Guiana did not have
the desired effect. 'flattering as
was the reception of that book
by the critics, the public little
cared to read it'. So Jenkins
transformed that lifeless study
into a 'picturesque form'.

BONDAGE (1917) by A. R. F.
Webber and A HANDFUL OF
DUST (1934) by Evelyn Waugh
were two of the other four of
five early novels created from
almost similar circumstances
surrounding the first novel.
Webber's novel was first pub-
lished in serial form while
Waugh's resulted from his trav-
James Rodway's IN
GUIANA WILDS, 1899, and
W. H. Hutson's GREEN
MANSIONS, 1904, complete
the listing of the five early nov-
els in our literary heritage.
The first novel written by
a Guyanese was CORENTYNE
THUNDER (1941) by Edgar
Mittelholzer. Others written by
that same author and by his
contemporaries including
BLACK MIDAS (Jan Carew),
OFF WHITE (Christopher
(E. R. Braithwaite), PALACE

Harris), GUIANA BOY (Peter
Kempadoo) and DUMPLINGS
IN MY SOUP (0. R. Dathorne)
followed that first novel.

The first recorded verses of
this country surfaced in 1832.
That was the year someone writ-
ing under the pseudonym,
'Colonist', published his 'MID-
DEMERARA'. Following the
musings of the 'Colonist' was
the ruminations of Simon Chris-
tian Oliver. Other significant
names of that early period were
Henry Dalton, William Roberts,
Fred Belgrave, Thomas Don and
Egbert Martin who was the
most accomplished of the lot,
sporting the label, 'the father of
Guyanese poetry'. After 'Leo',
there was a lull, nay, a wide gap,
in poetic expression until a re-
vival in 20th century that led to
what is termed modern
Guyanese Poetry, ushered in by
Walter McArthur Lawrence.
This period was graced by the
first anthology of poetry
by Cameron in 1931) and the

edited by Ramcharitar-Lalla in
1934). An enabling feature of
Guyanese literature for this pe-
riod was the launching of the
journal, KYK-OVER-AL, in
1945. Some poets that kept the
'unsteady flame' burning unto
Guyana's Independence (and af-
ter) were/are A. J. Seymour, J.
W. Chinapen, Wordsworth
McAndrew, Wilson Harris,
Martin Carter, Ivan Van
Sertima, and Ian McDonald.
Of course, women were
writing but still to produce a
published collection. The active
ones included Jacqueline
DeWeever, Margaret Bayley,
Edwina Melville, Cecile
Nobrega, Rajkumari Singh and
Leela Sukhu.
That the short story is the
parent of the novel is not debat-
able as there was and continues
to be a preponderance of prac-
titioners in this genre. The
record showed that as early as
1835, one Matthew Barker pub-
lished his TOUGH YARNS.
The first book of short stories
published by a resident
Guyanese was titled,

iiir IJ

'SCRIPTOLOGY', written by
Egbert Martin. This book was
published in 1885 in
Georgetown, Guyana, and is
very rare with just one reported
copy surviving.
The next collections of
short stories by a single author
were 'TROPIC DEATH' by
Eric Walrond published in 1926
in the USA, followed by
PIRES' by J. A. V. Bourne in
1940. The horror tales by
Bourne were originally pub-
lished in the Chronicle Christ-
mas Annual.
Attention must be focused
on literary magazines of the
time that became ready open-
ings for burgeoning short
story tradition slighted by the
British publishing houses.
Magazines like the Daily
TIDE' which started in 1893
and the Daily Chronicle's
(1915) nurtured the short
story tradition, launching the
career of many writers.

top celeb philanthropists

E!Online Celebrities may
make a lot of money. But
they're also good at giving it
Oprah Winfrey, Steven
Spielberg and Angelina Jolie top 's list of
Hollywood's 10 most generous
entertainers, donating a collec-
tive $58 million over the last
two years to respective causes,
most notably disaster relief in
the wake of the devastating
Asian tsunami and Hurricane
Citing numbers from the
Chronicle of Philanthropy, reports that the
daytime talk queen doled out a
whopping $52 million in chari-

which supports women and
children's programmes. An ad-
ditional $3.5 million went to
Oprah's Angel Network, which
she founded in 1998 to encour-
age fans and fellow celebs to be
more philanthropic. And last
but not least, Winfrey gave $10
million to aid victims ravaged by
Katrina last year.
Spielberg, meanwhile, wrote
two checks worth $1.5 million
each to aid in the post-tsumani
and post-Katrina recovery. The
Schindler's List previously es-
tablished the Survivors of the
Shoah Visual History Founda-

ajj~najio cluture

By Neil Marks
W HAT do you get when you take all the
odds and ends and the best of the best
in Guyanese theatre, music, and dance?
The answer: All in Wan!
The mega production, dialed up for the country's 40th Indepen-
dence anniversary by the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Com-
pany, rings in at the National Cultural Centre this Friday for an ex-
plosive performance down memory lane.
Guyanese musical extraordinaire Dave Martins, has spared "not
a blade of grass" in putting his pen to a potpourri of Guyanese cul-
ture of the past 40 years, and Ron Robinson has the task of bringing
the script to stage.
So, as a 40-year-old man, played by Howard Lorrimer, gets
"sweet" with his three friends (Michael Ignatius, Kirk Jardine,
Ajay Baksh) reminiscing on his life, what will actually come
to life on the stage would be a two-hour panorama reflecting,
as Martins put it, "the vibrant and dynamic culture that is
unique to Guyana".
Hearing of the 'Guyana Baboo' Terry Gajraj, the flautist Keith
Waithe, the African Congo Nya drummers, the Indian musicians from
the Cove and John Ashram, the Amerindian dancers, the Classique
Dance Company, the Nrityageet dancers, the Tin Cup Band, the
Marigold Singers, the Ruimveldt Boys Choir, the Mighty Rebel, Lady
Tempest, the Masqueraders of the Jokers Wild, and a Mash Band,
you know it will be big!
Continuing from our feature two Sunday's ago, we will this week
clue you in a little bit more on some of those who make up the 'All
in Wan' pot.
We've told you of how Keith Waithe plans to use elements
of jazz, Afro and Indo motifs /rhythms, his vocal gymnastic tech-
niques, including playing the beautiful melody of his flute, to
re-create the evergreen Indian classic, Suhani Raat. You also
know of the imaginative set designed by ace designer Henry
Muttoo, who intends to transform the National Cultural Cen-
tre stage into an elaborate bamboo grove with intriguing light-
ing effects. Today, we'll feature other personalities in the pro-

Ajay Baksh
'All in Wan' sees the return to the stage of Ajay Baksh, the former
GTV Editor-in-chief, now Communications Coordinator at Conser-
vation International.
It has been a while since his first gig, 'Awe Society 2'. Remem-
ber him from 'Tourist Touchdown' and 'Driving Miss Daisy'? He
ended a good run in theatre in 'Ecstasy' eight years ago. Now he's
"1 play the role of a 45-year-old Indian man who, along with his
friends, catch up for a drink, and they discuss issues in Guyana as it
turns 40," he says.
"This return to the stage was not planned, nor did I ever
envision returning to the stage. However, when one finds a script
as important and interesting as this one is, you feel almost a
sense of duty to be part of it," he told the Sunday Chronicle.
"I have entered the production late and I am working on learning
all my lines and moves in the short time left. While this is a chal-

lenge, it is not impossible especially given the fact that I am sur-
rounded by a competent, helpful and very professional team %, ho
will help me get my act together," he added.
Ajay admires how the entire team is working together beyond
the normal call of duty to make this production the high point of
Guyana's 40th anniversary and an event "people will be talking about
long after it has closed."

Terry Gajraj
Terry Gajraj, the Guyana Baboo is in the line-up to provide non-
stop entertainment in 'All in Wan'.
Surrounded by a family of singers, from his father, grandfather,
uncle and others, he began his singing career as a youngster back
home in Fyrish Village, Corentyne.
But singing Bhajans in the mandirs could not cut it if he was

was for the chutney/soca genre, following in the footsteps of his
idol, Sundar Popo.
Having, more than 15 CDs to his name and more than 150
songs to his credits, Terry Gajraj is one of Guyana's most re-
corded artists to date. Not only is he a performer, but a profes-
sionally trained musician who writes some of his lyrics.
He has performed in the Caribbean, USA, England, Suriname and
Holland. He has represented Guyana as the only Chutney singer at
most of the major Carnivals in the world, such as those in Trinidad,
Miami, Toronto and London.
"I like to see the smiles on people's face when I sing a Guyana
Baboo, and have them sing along," he said in an interview posted on
his website.
There is no doubt that he will get loads of that in 'All In Wan'.

GEMS Theatre Productions
GEMS Theatre Productions is contracted to put on 'All in Wan'.
It is Gem Madhoo Nascimento's biggest engagement since and she is
nervous, but excited.
She founded her company in February 2002, opening with
Trinidadian, Hollywood, Broadway and television actor Sullivan
Walker in Guyana.
Since then, there has been no turning back. She has staged 18
productions to date, ranging from classical concerts, jazz concerts,
comedy, drama, including the internationally renowned 'Vagina Mono-
logues', and children's plays.
The famous Talk Tent from Trinidad with Paul Keens Douglas
has now become an annual feature in the theatre calendar in Febru-
In June 2005, GEMS started another such production 'Laugh
Tent' with Richardo Keens Douglas and other artists from the
local scene and the Caribbean. This will be staged annually.
Gem herself brings to 'All in Wan' almost 32 years of experi-
ence, playing leading managerial roles for approximately 160 stage,
television and radio productions.
She was co-founder and Director of the Theatre Company from
1981-2002. She served as Production Manager for its 125 produc-
tions, stage managed most of them and managed all its 10 overseas
tours up until 2001.
She has attended playwright's conferences at the Eugene O'Neil
Theatre Centre in Connecticut, workshops in the Caribbean and was
the secretary for The Theatre Information Exchange (TIE), which
was based in Barbados.
She also holds a director's portfolio with Public Communications
Consultants as its Finance Director.

Kirk Jardine
Kirk Jardine plays one of Lorrimer's friends in telling the story
of Guyana in the last 40 years in 'All in Wan'.
He is a "baby" on the theatre scene in Guyana. His debut in
theatre was in 2003 as Chief in 'One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest'
which was later followed in 2004 with 'For Better for Worse" as the
character. Grizzly.
He was co-host alongside Habeeb Khan and Lyndon 'Jumbie'
Jones on the TV show Stress relief.
Since then, he has been a regular feature as a stand -up
comedian at the Upscale restaurant 'Comedy Night Show' and
has been performing in Linden, Berbice and other outlying ar-

His most recent performance was in Churamanic Bissoondial's
'Epilepsia' in May, followed by GEMS Theatre Productions 'Right

Michael Ignatius
The "You want him to disfigure this creation" line from 'Two's
a Crowd' shot youngster Michael Ignatius to instant fame. His can-
tankerous character put a new twist to hilarity in Guyanese theatre
and since then he has become one the best loved newcomers on stage
in Guyana.

Ron Robinson
Ron Robinson has the job to make sure that 'All In Wan' comes
out the way Dave Martins envisions it: non-stop entertainment with
dance, music, comedy, drama, and spectacle ranging from Diwali to
Mashramani and everything in between.
With his impressive resume, Ron seems just the man to put the
act together. He started drama at the age of 10 in 'HMS Pinafore'
back at Queens College some 45 years ago. He is undoubtedly one
of Guyana's leading theatre practitioners.
He was chairman of the Theatre Guild for many years before
branching out to collaborate and start the Theatre Company in 1981,
of which he chairman and managing director. He was once described
by a newspaper critic as the 'Alfred Hitchcock' of Guyana.
His directorial skills range from thrillers, dramas, comedies, mu-
sicals and comedy-drama having acted in no less than 90 stage pro-
ductions to date.
He has directed all the Link Shows (20) to date and has been
awarded more 'Best Director' and 'Best Actor' awards than any other
thesp in Guyana today.
Ron has spearheaded all of the Theatre Company's overseas
tours. A founder member of CARIBUSTE (Caribbean/US Theatre
Exchange), he has attended several workshops and conferences in
the USA and Caribbean.
'All in Wan' opens on May 26 with a gala for invitees only.
Public performances will be on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28. A
complimentary matinee for schoolchildren and elderly residents
in 'homes' will be held on Sunday at 13:00 hrs.



Awning Win"

By Eddi Rodney
OR an entire 'generation' of Guyanese artists,
especially women painters, Merlene Ellis has become
almost perennial. This trait may well have resulted
form her original 'experiments' whilst a secondary school
student; creative activities that gained her a GCE 'O' level in
Art during the early to mid 1980s.
One recalls her drawings over the years as reflective and address-
ing a range of social issues involving groups of people ('Boat Build-
ers', 'Truck Man At Bourda', 'Searching for Shells' and 'Three Fish-
ermen' amongst others..), and revealing for the benefit of the ob-
server, "outdoor" scenes indigenous to the Guyanese sensibility.

Important Still Life Technique and
Drawing Style
Since the latter part of March this year, Castellani House has
exhibited 'Ellis 2006: recent paintings by Merlene Ellis'. This col-
lection of artwork is part of the National Gallery's project 'Celebrat-
ing Outstanding Women in the Visual Arts.'
Elsewhere in this column, I have commented on Ellis's still life
interpretations. Particularly those illustrative of edible vegetables and
root crops eddoess, onions, breadfruit, plantains and cassava tubers
etc). Actually working on this approach and direction, Ellis ('Pickle
Onions', 'Metagee' and 'Breadfruit' as well as 'Water Jug with Man-
goes and Star Apples') has a most distinctive idealism which must
be categorised as an important technique and stylistic in terms of
drawing as art. If we consider that all these 'forms' of edible veg-
etable and varieties of fruit are perishables, Merlene Ellis practically
demonstrates a significant primary production (both subsistence and
cash crop) aspect of local survival.
To the extent therefore, that this 'formulation' remains idealist
then likewise, what emerges from the acrylic and canvas as well as
water colours, is a semblance of art nouveau if we like in Creole

Functional and Fund-Raising Art Efforts
Merlene's evolution from the 1990s when her work with the Cre-
ative Arts Association (CAA) was panelled at Castellani and she did
other projects including her first solo exhibition at the Hadfield Gal-
lery, has established her as a major artist and art prize award winner
(1999, 2001, 2002). Her participation in the activities of the Guyana
Women Artists' Association (GWAA) has enabled her to reproduce
to a specific demand for culture.

As Elfrieda Bissember observes:
"With an adventurous and independent spirit she has mapped

her own career, on a unique path, yet has achieved notable success.
She has become a leading and prominent Guyanese artist, exhibiting
with the GWAA, yet with a solo career that has won her competi-
tion prizes, representation of her country abroad, and inclusion in
numerous private collections, in institutional collections and the Na-
tional Collection of Guyana. Her works have similarly become among
the most prized items at leading fundraising auctions in the coun-
try," (March, 2006)

Viewing 'Ellis 2006' I realized that her 'Impression of Essequibo
River', 'Kurupung River', 'Regent Street', 'A Slice of Itiribisi', 'Body
Form' and 'Library Chair' (all Acrylic on Canvas) together with
'Brethren', 'Sisteren', 'Paper and Age', 'In Bed', 'Body Form' and
'Bougainvillean and Wine' (Watercolours on Paper), had been sold at
prices ranging from $90,000 to $25,000. It means therefore, that
Merlene Ellis has developed into a popular art figure with charisma
and "culture wisdom" (Nettleford 2001).
The intriguing oil painting, 'Military Man' is set aside for the
artist's own collection. This portrait is that of the post 9/11 art genre
in Jamaica reggae styling: where top artistes such as the veteran Laurie
Aitken and even 'Sizzla' don performance costumes modelled on the
military uniform of Ethiopian Generals (even in the process pro-
claiming the virtues of Haile Selassie).
This artwork can be described as a 'Kyaan Done' influenced,
neo- Boogie representational drawing transformed into a canvas item.
Her 'Paper and Age' on the other hand, is a Watercolour on Paper
where the book catalogue is vested with, or "blessed" as the "source".
Both of these together with 'Full Moon' sort of bring out the influ-
ence of George Simon and certainly in places, Stanley Greaves and
ER Burrowes.
Merlene Ellis's art should at some stage be catalogued and
placed on microfiche if that has not already been done.

The Passage

Against all Odds: Reading this beginning for Inspiration
As she rushed up the hill toward the brownstone building
on a bitter December morning, Bonny Bentley Cewe
prayed that she would not let herself down. For six years
she had immersed herself in books to prepare for the
next five hours, and it had taken every ounce of
determination she had. If she failed now, she wasn't
sure she had it in her to try again.
The long gash above her hairline had healed, but the
puncture wounds on her hand still showed, and her leg ached
inside the braceas she took her seat in the drafty room. As
the proctor handed out the law-school admission test, Cewe
wondered how a 34-year-old single mother could compete
with the young students around her. Their parents probably
put credit cards in their wallets and bought them cars. In her
wallet was a week's worth of food stamps.
Who am I kidding? She thought. When she opened the
test booklet, her mind raced, and she forgot the whole fear of

In 1972, when she dropped out of Mark T. Sheehan High
School in Wallingford, Conn., Bonnie thought she would never
look back. She married and had two sons. For a while she
dressed windows for a department store; later she helped
her husband with the books for his home-improvement
business. But after six years of stormy marriage, Cewe
decided to end it. She didn't want her sons to grow up thinking
tha kind of relationship was normal.
Three days before Christmas 1983, she moved into an
apartment she could barely afford, where she and her sons,
then three and four, could start over. Christmas morning the
three gathered in the kitchen. One of the boys asked why
they were eating their hot cereal standing up, and the other
said, "Because there are no chairs." The simplicity of the
answer threw them into fits of laughter.
Cewe was not 29, a high-school drop-out on welfare. She
could see herself in fifteen years, working at a minimum-
wage job, her boys having no chance for college.
The thought scared her. She would have to go back to
In the divorce, Cewe had lost her house, which had been
in her in-laws' name as a safeguard in case her husband's
business failed. She felt victimized by the legal system, and
she decided to act on a lifelong dream. She would become
a lawyer and do as Perry Mason has done protect the
innocent and expose the guilty....

REMINDER: The six types of expository writing

1) Process Explanation: A step-by-step organization to explain
how something happens, works, or is done. Examples are:
How do you run a co-operative society? How are computers
built? How does the human body repair itself?

2) Cause and Effect: Identifies the causes and/or effects of
something and examines the relationship between causes
and effects. Examples are: What causes hair breakage?
What causes mildew on cotton clothing? What are the effects
of poverty on children?

3) Comparison and Contrast: Examines similarities and
differences to find relationships and draw conclusions.
Examples are: Compare boiled custard and baked custard
or meat and vegetable pies. Compare and contrast
Rounders and baseball.

4) Definition: Explains a term or concept by listing and
examining its qualities and characteristics. Examples are:
What is tiyospaye? What is communication among insects?
What is a dark horse?

5) Classification: Organises subjects into categories and
examines qualities or characteristics of those categories.
Examples: What organisms are considered fungi? How do
you characters the writing of Stephen King?

6) Problem and Solution: Examines aspects of a complex
problem and explores or proposes possible solutions.
Examples are: How can your institution increase literacy in
children? What can be done to protect baby girls today from
sexual harassment?

Knowing Your Audience
Yes. You have to know your audience.
a) Identify your audience;

b) Focus your writing; and

c) Choose appropriate details.

In the sample writing below, an expert writer explains her
attraction to a place that her readers, most of them city dwellers,
regard as isolated and desolate.


In all this open space, values crystalise quickly. People are
strong on scruples, but tender-hearted about quirky
behaviour. ... A friend, Cliff, who runs a trap line in the winter,
cut off half his foot while chopping a hole in the ice. Alone, he
dragged himself to his pickup and headed for town, stopping
to open the ranch gate as he left, and getting out to close it
again, thus losing, in his observance of rules, precious time
and blood. Later, he commented, "How would it look, them
having to come to the hospital to tell me their cows had gotten

Accustomed to emergencies, my friends doctor each other
from the vet's bag with relish. When one old-timer suffered a
heart attack in a hunting camp, his partner quickly stirred up
a brew of red horse liniment and hot water and made the half-
conscious victim drink it, then tied him on to a horse and led
him twenty miles to town.

Gretel Ehrlich, The Solace of Open Spaces

If you look once more at the first paragraph, you will observe
that Ehrlich provides two examples to show what she means
when she says the people are "tender-hearted about quirky

Look again and see how the quotation ("How would it look,
them having to come to the hospital to tell me their cows had
gotten out?") brings a sense of immediacy to the writing.
How might Cliff's comment help Ehrlich's readers to
understand her words "strong on scruples"?

When you write, think about your particular audience.
Each piece of writing will help you zoom in to what your
readers need to know. Think about what each person is
looking for as you complete your writing. If you allow
your study partners and peers to read your writings, they
can give you valuable feedback on how well you are
writing for your audience.

Also, when you write personal notes, letters to friends, job
applications, news stories for the school's newspaper, or
letters to the editor of a local newspaper, you must consider
various readers. There are some questions below to help
you develop a feel for your audience.

Take a keen look at your topic of interest that you want to write
about, find out much about its background, and appropriate
vocabulary. As you try to understand your audience, you
should be able to choose well in the areas of INTEREST,

Archive unlocks

secrets of


By Tom Armitage
BAD AROLSEN (Reuters) The death register from the
Mauthausen concentration camp contains rows of neatly
printed names. The times of execution are each two minutes
apart. The date is April 20, 1942 Adolf Hitler's 53rd birthday.
"Every second minute there is another prisoner and this goes
on for pages," says Udo Jost, an archivist at the International Trac-
ing Service (ITS) which looks after the world's biggest collection of
documents from World War Two.
"They shot 300 prisoners for Hitler's birthday present: not just
T shot but then registered them by name."
Millions of documents, like this register from the camp near
\ Linz in Austria, sit in the cellars of a converted hotel in the central
German town of Bad Arolsen, testament to the chillingly efficient
bureaucracy of the Nazi regime.
Some 17 million people are named in the documents those
who were murdered, those who survived the concentration camps
and then the millions who were forced to work on farms and it
factories under Hitler's employment policies.
UPR O VEDf The ITS, under the management of the International Commit-
tee of the Red Cross, has been administering the archive and an-
GIN G swering queries for around 60 years. Until now, Germany hac
i staunchly opposed opening the archive to a wider public.

said last month they would allow historians to use the archive

Much of the archive's material is highly sensitive.
"Believe me." Jost says pointing to drawer after drawer of work

The racks of green movable shelves on the second floor of th

The contents, gathered since the end of World War Two fror
archives across Germany, Russia and the former communist east

A pink "imprisonment order" details how a Pole ended up in
concentration camp for his affair with a German woman; a sheaf c
papers neatly typed by a Gestapo officer records a woman's prc

The detail is often absurd.

Literary Impulses

that early period were.Edgar Mittelholzer, Vere T. Daly, K. H.
Cregan, David Westmaas, H. V. Webber, and Basil Balgobin.
The journals, KYK-OVER-AL, and, KAIE, also accommodated
the short fiction.

Theatre in Guyana started in the late 18th century. However,
almost all material performed was written abroad even though a few
pieces were rearranged to include local flavour. Of course, there were
exceptions like th:l case of a play written by the Dutch based on
the Berbice Slave Rebellion of 1763. And then there were some early
local playwrights whom little is known.
But it was not until thel940s with the advent of N. E. Cameron
to stagecraft, that plays were written by Guyanese even though
the content of some betrayed that fact.
Also during the 1940s, the Brifish Guiana Dramatic Society which
was established in 1936 came to prominence but for most of its existence
it was guilty of producing plays from out of India as was the case with the
other groups mimicking English, Dutch and German plays.
The late 1940s and early 1950s saw the rise of the Gray Dra-
matic Group in what is now known as Linden-Town. The popular
and extensive Sugar Estate Drama Festival which started in the late
1950s brought rural theatre into the equation.
However, the major impetus of this period was the founding of
the Theatre Guild in 1957 which grew in stature, going on to pro-
duce some of the more outstanding players in drama including Sheik
Sadeek, Frank Pilgrim, Ken Corsbie, Robert Narain, Michael Gilkes.
Ron Robinson, Lorna Lampkin, Eileen McAndrew, Cecily
Robinson, to name a few.
On this significant body of literature typified by the colo-
nial experience and growing nationalistic impulses, we slipped

Day for


Diversity 2006

On May 22 of May, Guyana
will be joining with many
other countries around the
world to celebrate Interna-
tional Day for Biological Di-
versity. The theme for this
year is 'Protecting Biodiversity
in Drylands'.

On June 1992, in the city of
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a total of
153 countries, including
Guyana, signed the Convention
on Biological Diversity (CBD)
during the United Nations Con-
ference on Environment and De-
velopment. The Convention

came into force on December
29. 1993 and since then more
than 175 countries have ratified
it. making it one of the most

widely supported international
agreements. Guyana endorsed
this Convention on August 29.
The (CBD) is the single

most significant development in
terms of the International Politi-
cal Will to conserve
biodiversity. Adopted at the
Earth Summit, it was the first
global agreement on the conser-
vation and sustainable use of
biological diversity. The CBD
establishes three main goals:
The conservation of
biological diversity.
The sustainable use
of the components of
The fair and equitable
sharing of the benefits from the
use of genetic resources.

The Convention focuses the
attention of decision-makers on
the fact that natural resources
are not infinite, thus, promoting
the practice of sustainable use.
While past conservation efforts
have been aimed at protecting
particular species and habitats,
the CBD recognizes that whole
ecosystems must be protected
and used in a sustainable man-
ner for the benefit of mankind.
This means much care should be
taken to ensure that these natu-
ral resources should not be used
in a way and at a rate that will

lead to the long-term decline of
biological diversity.

Life on earth consists of
many different species, from
large mammals such as el-
ephants to small insects, and
from microscopic plants to
trees. The sum total of variety
Sof life on earth, including the
variation in ecosystems is re-
ferred to as biological diver-
sity or biodiversity in short. The
term also refers to the diversity
of habitats in which species ex-
ist such as forests and oceans
- and the genetic variation
within species. The existence of
this biodiversity, and the inter-
actions between species and
with the rest of the environ-
ment. provides us with a num-

ber of goods and services that
sustain our livelihoods.

Taking a global perspective
on the world's biodiversity.
records show that species are
currently under enormous pres-
sure, and as a result, scientists
estimate that species are disap-
pearing at up to 1.000 tintes the
natural rate. Based on current
trends, it is estimated that
34.000 plants and 5.200 animal
species including one in eight
of the world's bird species -
face extinction.

While the loss of individual
species is alarming, it is the frag-
mentation. degradation, and loss
of forests, wetlands, coral reefs.
and other ecosystems that
poses the gravest threat to bio-

logical diversity. Forests are
home to much of the known ter-
restrial biodiversity, but about
45 per cent of the Earth's origi-
nal forests are gone, cleared
mostly during the past century.

Biodiversity can be discussed at
three levels:

o Species diversity-
this variety is the basis for the
distinguishing of organisms into
different units. The basic group
or unit is called the species.
Hence, there is an immense va-
riety of species of living organ-
isms in a natural area or region.
Take for example in the environ-
ment there exist Humans. In-
sects, Jaguars, Fishes, Green-
heart, and Mango trees, just to
name a few.
o Genetic diversity-
The diversity spoken of is not
restricted to species, for within
each species there is genetic vari-
ability causing each organism
from the same group to be dif-
ferent. An example of this would
be the human species, in which
each person (except identical
twins) is genetically different
from the other, even that
person's parents and other fam-
ily members.
o Ecosystem diversity-
is the variety of ecosystems in
a community of living organ-
isms interacting with each
other and their surround-
ings. An ecosystem may cover
a large area such as a forest
or small area such as a pond.
Some ecosystem diversity in
Guyana are categorised as
Forest ecosystems a) moist
lowland, b) dry evergreen
scrub, c) white sand forest,

The justification for
conserving biodiversity lies in
its value and the impacts of its
loss on ecosystems. the bio-

sphere and man. It is worth re-
peating that, apart from the
countless kinds of genetic ma-
terials, there are myriad species
of micro-organisms, plants, ani-
mals, habitats and ecosystems.
The organisms contribute vitally
to the productivity of ecosys-
tems and provide a wide range
of essential services to the bio-
sphere as a whole and to man,
for example food, water and
health, formation of soil and the
cycling of nutrients and water.
Protecting biodiversity is
in our self-interest as it affects
us all. Biological diversity pro-
vides: us with life-sustaining
systems (such as clean air, pro-
ductive oceans, fresh water and
fertile soil for food production)
without which we would not be
able to support ourselves.
Biodiversity products
support a range of diverse in-
dustries such as agriculture.
cosmetics, pharmaceuticals.
pulp and paper, horticulture.
construction and waste treat-
ment. The loss of the biological
diversity threatens our food
supplies, opportunities for rec-
reation and tourism, and sources
of wood. medicines and energy.

The threats posed to
biodiversity are those
activities which affect its
individual components, i.e.
ecosystems, species and
genes. Despite its importance

ORGANIC farmers in Guyana will soon have a new method
of controlling Acoushi ants. These leaf cutting ants are seri-
ous pests that destroy huge acreage of many different crops in
all major farming communities especially in the inland areas
of Guyana.
In stressing the importance of this development, Dr. O.
Homenauth, Director, NARI, highlighted that the improved method
of controlling acoushi ants involves the replacement of its active
ingredient, Fipronil, with environmentally friendly materials e.g.

mammey seeds and pyrethrum.
He explained that Fipronil is an insecticide which was devel-
oped during the 1996 for use in animal health, indoor pest control
and commercial turf. He cautioned that the effects of Fipronil on
human health and the environment is dependent on the amount of
Fipronil used and the length and frequency of exposure. He also
assured that. at the NARI. the Institute uses a low percentage of
Fipronil in the manufacture of the Acoushi Ant Bait which is used
in the control of these pests.

However in 2005, IFOAM,
whose responsibility is organic certifi-
cation, in a rcpoirt stated that the chemi- 4
cal was environmentally unsafe.
According to Christopher
Waruri, Kenyan Entomologist at-
tached to NARI "'The materials
used to replace Fipronil especially
pyrethrum is organically produced
and is environmentally friendly."
The new environmentally
friendly materials included in the | ,A
Acoushi Ant bait which is used in
the controlling of these insects will
significantly boost organic food
production in Guyana's exclusive Organic Zone ( Regions 1 and 2)
and aid in the products being awarded organic certification.
Studies conducted by NARI indicated that the baits made from
ingredients other than Fipronil are effective since they allow for
destruction and death of the ants.
Acoushi Ant Bait production began in Guyana in the 1950's
but the ingredients used during the baiting process were highly toxic.
Today the Institute is equipped with a functional facility that has
the capacity of producing thousands of 200 g packets of bait per
At present, the Institute supplies a large quantity of baits
to farmers across Guyana at a minimum fee.

International Day for

Biological Diversity 2006

to life on Earth, biodiversity faces a number of threats these include: From page XVI
As more land is cleared for housing, agriculture, industries etc, animals and plants lose their homes.
Some animals flee to other areas and many perish. Plants that are unique to a particular area may
become lost forever.
When harmful chemicals such as acid gases, pesticides, oil. etc are released into the environment,
they can be toxic or hazardous to biodiversity. Aquatic biodiversity face additional danger from indus-
trial untreated waste discharge and from high quantities of fertilisers
present in runoff from farms.
When biodiversity is harvested too quickly, young plants and ani-
mals are not given a chance to grow and mature. This means that few
new members are added to a species' population and as a result, the
species may disappear from Earth or become extinct. Over-exploita-
tion occurs as a result of poverty, and in many cases, ignorance and
poor management of resources.
Some new (foreign or exotic) species when introduced into an area
can upset the balance of the food chain. This can result in native spe-
cies perishing as they are unable to compete with the exotic ones for
basic necessities such as space, light, shelter, food and mates.
It is widely accepted that global temperature is rising. A change in
global temperature can affect the breeding cycle as well as other life
processes of living things. Also living places (habitats) are predicted
to change drastically hence becoming unsuitable for some kinds of species.
Well that was quite a bit on what biodiversity is all about. In next week's
Article, we will examine protecting biodiversity in Drylands. For more information, please visit

ARIES Staying inside your head today isn't a bad idea. You're still mulling
some things over, and the outside world offers nothing but noise. This ex-
cludes the people you care about, of course. As a matter of fact, one of those
people is capable of creating just the perfect environment in which you can
think best (you know who that is). Contact them and plan to get together.
They can either listen or give you the silence you need to hear your inner
voice much more clearly.
TAURUS The good luck pendulum is swinging back toward the business
and financial areas of your life today! Look for either a big expenditure to
suddenly disappear a new source of income to show signs of growth or a
new opportunity for upward mobility to arrive on the scene. Whatever the
reason for this sunnier weather in your financial universe, it will put your life
on the pathway toward a bigger lifestyle full of complicated but welcome -
GEMINI Sometimes, you push yourself too hard for perfection you cannot
possibly be perfect' (at least not all the time), so do yourself a favour and quit
it! Shake loose of the expectations you have for yourself right now, and listen
to others when they tell you everything is good. You add sunshine into the
lives of most of the people you touch, why not focus on that wonderful fact
for a while? Let go of the few missteps you make every once in a while every-
one else does.
CANCER Moving slowly is starting to feel good, and you're getting the hang
of listening to yourself and conserving your energy. This is a real sign of
progress, one that indicates you may be storing up resources for a dramatic
return to the scene. You could make a big splash if you play it right. But first,
keep focusing on privacy no one needs to know what you're up to if you
don't want them to know. Keep your cards close until you're ready to play the
LEO Conversations with a few intellectual giants \\ill be entertaining and
enriching today, especially if \ou have confidence in what you have to add to
the mix. Keep in mind that you don't have to be an expert on everything to
be included. In fact, a healthy curiosity will give you a much more memorable
experience, so check out key concepts and get familiar with them so you'll
know what to ask and when. Your brain is getting hungry, so feed it before it
VIRGO You are achieving major victories every day, whether you realise it or
not. So why do you always need an excuse to celebrate? Pick a date and a hot
new restaurant, and then call up your friends for a fun night out. When they
ask what the occasion is, simply tell them 'life.' Without an official reason,
you're all free from the pressures of expectation and no one will feel guilty
or jealous about success. You can all touch base and catch up with each other's
LIBRA Like the proverbial roller-coaster ride, life is going to offer you some
wildly shifting ups and downs in the energy department today. As long as
you get in enough coffee in the morning and fresh air during the course of
the day, you'll be fine. Just monitor your emotions and check in with yourself
every now and again. This evening, the mood will change and you'll welcome
a bit of unpredictability. Beg off a last minute invitation so you can regroup
with some quiet time alone.
SCORPIO Seeing the same folks day after day may have seemed boring a
while ago, but you are getting used to the rhythms of the people around
you. A family is developing, and you're finding a strong support system for
your ideas. Life is nearly running on autopilot, and that's freeing up more
time to investigate new passions, ideas and relationships. Before things gain
too much momentum, take time by yourself to recharge and relax. You'll need
more energy for an upcoming opportunity.
SAGITTARIUS Ever notice the strange nature of a construction site? You see
the skeleton of a structure for months and months and then one day you
go by and there's a brand new building standing there! Transformations in
your own life can be like that apparently slow going, then suddenly com-
plete. So if you're feeling frustrated at the progress you are (or aren't) mak-
ing right now, buck up. Changes are happening, and before you know it,
you'll wake up at the finish line!
CAPRICORN Keep focusing on alone time do not let social expectations
drive you out into the world if you're not feeling it. Your charm doesn't react
well to pressure, anyway. If you really want to have fun, make social decisions
based on what would make you happiest. It sounds simple, of course but
it's only simple If you remember to do It. Work pressures will ease, so expect
a lot of free weekday nights. Enjoy them alone or with your favorite person
(which could be you too).
AQUARIUS You have great potential to make a seed of an idea bloom into
a hearty tree today and it's not even something you've been working on.
More likely, it's a concept, change or process that's been hovering in the back
of your mind. Strike while the iron is hot today. This is a group situation,
whether you know it or not, so grab a bunch of the smartest people you
know and lead them onto a fun, exciting time. Everything is lined up to work
perfectly get a move on!
PISCES You'll be feeling quite outgoing today, and it's perfect timing be-
cause you'll encounter an awful lot of terribly intriguing people during the
course of the day. Put conversation at the top of your priority list, but be
Assure to go deeper than typical small talk your opinions are going to be
challenged, and you'll have a thrill defending your positlon.'And' keep an
open mind when one of your hardest-held beliefs goes down in flames,
you'll be gratefulfor the new perspective.

TODAY, we continue our discussion on medical biotechnology and its important contribution in pro-

role of biotechnology in our modern health care system.

More examples of medical biotechnology
Last week, we had a glimpse of otherwise humanly impossible feats being now achieved through
the powerfully awesome modern biotechnology the laboratory "creation" of a human urinary
bladder. This is of immense benefit to some persons born with a serious condition called spina bifida,
a condition in which during the development of the human foetus the spinal column is not, in lay
terms, normally developed in relation to the backbone through which it runs. As a result a number of
functions controlled by the nervous system become impaired. One classic example is the inability of
such persons to control the bladder, among other conditions. As indicated in that article, the unique
feat was achieved by a team led by Professor Anthony Atala of Boston's Children Hospital in the
United States.

a lawsuit filed by Bob Marley's bass guitarist Aston 'Fam-

million) in unpaid royalties from Island Records and the
Marley family.
Barrett, who has 52 children, had testified that he and his
brother Carlton Barrett, a drummer who was murdered in 1985,
did not receive much money following Marley's death from can-

But Justice Lewison dismissed the suit in a ruling at
London's High Court on Monday.

Marley's family welcomed the decision.
"It is good to see our position vindicated," it said in a state-

The Barrett brothers played on numerous albums by reggae
band Bob Marley and the Wailers, including 'Natty Dread',
'Rastaman Vibration' and 'Babylon by Bus'.

proceeds were donated to schools and charities in the country's
inner-city communities. Due to mounting resistance from local
authorities. Bounty Killer discontinued the show in 2001.
