HAIL up, Rastn! Give you
blood a pound!
You feeling real ire, r-ight?
Yeah, blood. a lot of people
really, rea~lly) proud of whalt Ra1s
Ordock Reid pulled off in that
cess pool in TIucville,
Georgetown last week. Big up

Yo~u know how a lot of
people feel about Rastas, right?
How they, suck their teeth and
twitch their nose when Rastas
around, as if they smelling some
really. really old human faeces
(also known as sh-t)? '
Well, a lot of them who
tend to look down on Rastas as
the sh-t of the earth must be
feeling like a lot of old sh-t right
now after the way Ras Ordock
put them to shame last week.
Hail up that blood, blood!
Imagine he was the only
one in that crowd who had the
outs, the courage, the bra~very,
the balls to throw caution to
the wind and dive into that cess
pool to try to save a little girl.
No police around, no fire-
m~en around, and a crowd only
watching and hoping as five-
year-old Brianna Maya Dover
stayed buried for hours beneath
age plant.
It was only a Rasta, an odd
jobs blood named Ordock, who
felt he had to do something more
than wring his hands and hope
and pray.
It was only that blood who
had the presence of mind to tie
a piece of rope around his waist
and dive into the deep pool of
human faeces to try to rescue
the little girl.
And imagine, blood, when
his dreadlocks posed a dannger
as he floundered around in that
stinking pool of sh-t searching
for little Brianna, Brother
Ordock clambered out, ran off
to find a knife with which he
cut off his precious locks, and
jumped right back into that cess
pool to continue his arduous

From what I hear, he's ~just
a loner, hanging around a taxi
service in Tucville, washing cars
and doing odd jobs to scrape a
daily living, and generally mind-
ing his business and nobody
Even on that fateful day last
Monday that triggered him into
an overnight hero, Ras Ordock
was hesitant; when he first
heard the commotion around the
cess pool, he thought it was fight
among people and wanted no
part of it.
But when he realized the life
of a little girl he did not even
know was at stake, he shed his
hesitancy and dived into a cess
pool, surfacing from all that sh-
I and stench into the newspa-
per headlines and into a kind of
stardom, threatening his ordi-
Malny of those reading the

See how the ordinary, poor,
hIumlble' can shame those who
strut around pretending, with
the'ir airs and fuss, how mighty
and highfaluting they are.

lowing around in that cess pool.
unmindful of the stink and sh-1
all over him, others were wor-
ried about how the sh-t would
affect their cologne a~nd perfume
while pretending concern for thc
fatre of little Brianna.
No police, no firemeno and
the only hero to spring from
around thatr cess pool that day
was Ras Ordock.
In spite of his brave efforts,
the girl died, but I, Ras Rief,
Honorary Rasta, join with oth-
crs in hailing this brother, this
blood. who somehow, in spite
of his ordinariness, searched
deep in his soul last Monday
and found the courage to do
what he did.

no time in contacting me trying
to find out how they could re-

One reader asked for a
phone number, an address at
which to contact Ras Ordock,
and when one of our reporters
checked, she found he does not

even have an ID card and no
fixed place of abode. The only
contact by phone is through the

panels was convened, Antigua
and Barbuda offered to address
the U.S. concerns about regula-
tion and taxuation.
The Antigua and Barbuda
gover~nment offered to bee~f up
its own regulation of the
Internet gaming companies to
guarc; ag'"."i! underage age gam-
bling and the possibility Of
money laundering, and also to
establish machinery for apply-
ing withholding taxes on win-
nings by U.S. punters which
would be paid over to the U.S.
The U~.S. government repre-
sentativecs favoured only a direct
prohibition on the delivery of
Internet gambling into the U.S.
from any part of the world.
In pursuance of this, the
U.S. House of Representatives
this month approved a Bill to
prohibit most forms of Internet
gambling and to make it illegal
for banks and credit card com-
panies to make payment to
online gambling sites. The U.S.
Senate has not yet voted on the
bill, but it is more than likely to
receive the nod of a majority-
This month also witnessed
U.S. law enforcement a~uthorities

THIS month, the world saw
the troubling face of
globalisation over Internet
On one side of the coin is
:iC desire by the U.S. govern-
ment to prohibit met 170 ho- "'
der delivery of Internet gambling
services into the U.S. On the
other side, are the companies
and countries that take advan-
tage of new trade rules ad-
vanced by the U.S. itself that
seek to create a single global
economic space in which busi-
nesses are free to enjoy unre-
stricted trade in goods and ser-
vices across the world.
The government of the
United States, the world's most
powerful nation and one of the
main advocates of globalisation,
1 continued to question decisions
of the World Trade Organisation
(WTO) that U.S. domestic laws
should be brought into compli-
ance with the U.S. government's
international obligations over the
delivery of Internet gambling
services from the tiny Caribbean
state, Antigua and Barbuda, into
U.S. territory.
U'.S. la~w makers and law~ en-
fo~r~Cemntn agencies hav~ as-

sorted that Internet gambling
helps to create gambling addicts,
is open t:o children, and can be
used for money laundering.
They also claim that Internet
gamling companies and their
p~unters evade paying tax in the
Representatives of the U.S.
at the WTO have also claimed
that the U.S. government has
never agreed to allow internet
gaming into its territory under
the General Agreement on Trade
in Services (GATS).
This has been the main is-
sue between the governments of
the U.S. and Antigua and
Barbuda at the WTO. Simply
put, is the U.S. violating its
commitment under the GATS
by prohibiting the delivery of
Internet gambling services from
companies located in Antigua?
So far, two WTO panels -
an original panel and an appel-
late panel -ruled in March 2004
and April 2005 respectively
that the U.S. should bring its
domestic laws into conformity
with ~its international obliga-
In two sets of consultaltion
processes" bef`ore each of` the

arresting the Chief Executive
Officer of one of Britain's lead-
ing Internet gambling companies,
Betusports, nd thee other
employees of the company as
!hev were transiting the U.S.
They wt;'" i"rr"este on
charges of racketeering and wn--
fra~ud because their company al-
lowed willing U.S. citizens to
oamblle over the Internet.
Even as the charges were be-
ing laid against the Betonsports
officials, the WTO wats in the
process of setting up yet another
panel, at the request of Antigua
and Barbuda, to investigate
whether the U.S. has taken steps
to comply with the earlier panel
rulings that it brings its domestic
laws into conformity with its ob-
ligations under the GATS.
The new panel was estab-
lished on July 19.
While the Caribbean coun-
tries in which Betonsports has
operations will be affected by
the U.S. action in arresting the
company's officials, it is the in-
ve~stors in the company which

was floated on the ztock, mar-
ket in the UK in July 1004 who
will feel the greatest pain.
Trading on Betonsports shares
was suspended in London fol-
lowing the arrests.
Other publicly traded on
line companies also saw their
share value drop as much as li
per cent.
Whether Betonsports has
actually broken any U.S. laws
is still to be determined.
The claiml is that the L'.S.
Wire Act covers sports betting.
but experts believe that because
the Act was written as far back
as 1961 it is not clear that it
covers other forms of gambhling.
The Act may not cover on line
casinos and on line poker.
It is noteworthy that the
13.S. allows on line betting on
horse racing. and several U.S.
State governments encourage
participation in State spon-
sored lotteries via the Internet.
And, 1 C 1 be assumed
that the lawyers tol
Betonsports will draw atten-
tion to the two WTO panel de-
cisions which state clearly that
the U.S. must bring its domes-
tic Ilaws into compliance with
its international obligations.
By the time the case is
heard in the U.S., the new
WTO panel decision should be
known. I'he panel has to re-
port its findings on U.S. com-
pliance within 90 days.
In any event. the Internet
gaming business now f urns over
estimated revenues of US$12
billion a year. It is probably
much higher than that.
The U.S. did not take on

se~veral years, awaiting a~ provo-

thleir ownl soldliers who dliel.
Tlhat( steady dlralin of lives

tablishmentll werle concer~nedt at
thle timle tha;t Israecl's "dterreI~nt
po'wer" ha~d beenl gra;vely er~oded
by Heczhollah's victory. A2nd
subsequent clashes withi the
Pallestinians did nlot see the old
ra~tio restored: during the years
of the so-called "second
intifada", only three Palestinians
were: dying for every Israeli who
was killed.
Hence the perceived need
within the Israeli armed forces

to, re~-e~stablishdetclr~rence", i.e.
to demllonstrat~e that1 Israel cln
aIndl may rcsp~ondt wlithl maiS-
sively dlispr~oportliionate violence

Th'le IDF' wasnl't actually
looking for a fight, but if a
fight calme along it intended
to use the opportunity to
make a demonstration of just
how big an over-r~eaction it
was capable of.
In the case of the Gaza
Strip and the kidnapping of the
first Israeli soldier by Hamas
mlilitants on 25 June, the opera-
tion went more or less accord-
ing to plan, because the Pales-
tinian militants have little to
fight with: the casualty ratio

Apache gunships that are
pounding Lebanon (130 Leba-

made in the United States, and
that doesn't mean that Washing-
ton ordered the Israeli offensive
against Lebanon.
Nasrailah knew that the Is-
raeli retaliation for the kidnap-
ping would fall mainly on inno-
cent Lebanese (because they are
much easier targets than his elu-
sive guerillas), but he doesn't
care. He had a few surprises up
his sleeve, like longer-range
rockets that could strike deep
into Israel and radar-guided Silk-
worm anti-ship missiles to at-
tack the Israeli warships that
used to shell the Lebanese coast
with impunity. And if he man-

popular Arab leader since
General Dan Halutz, the Is-
raeli Chief of Staff, was also
spoiling for a fight. His major
concern has been that Israel's
"deterrent power" has gone into
decline, and he wanted to re-es-
tablish it. Some Israeli defence

cation that would justify putting
it into effect. But what does

Understand that, andl you
understand the remarkable
savagery of the Israeli attacks
on Lebanon. Of course they
are a "disproportionate use
of force", as French President
Jacques Chirac called them
the other day. That is the
whole point. Israel's "deter-
rent power" lies in its dem-
onstrated will to kill and de-
stroy on a vastly greater scale
than anybody attacking it can
manage. Its enemies must
know that if one Israeli is
killed, a dozen or even a
hundred Arabs will die.
This has been the dominant
concept of Israeli strategy from
the very foundation of the state,
and the "kill ratio" in all of
Israel's wars down to its inva-
sion of Lebanon in 1982 con-
formed to that pattern. The
first time it didn't apply was in

changing one of those is through education.
This is where the radio soap opera on natural disasters in
the GC entitled: "The Rough Season" comes in. Acknowledging
that better disaster preparedness on the part of the public in
general would reduce the impact of disasters. The Rough Season
will be used as a forum for sharing and disseminating information
pertaining to disaster management and will seek to sensitise the
general public by increasing and promoting the knowledge of
the audience in the area of natural disasters, thus improving the
attitude toward disasters and fostering preparation and
mitigation efforts in the English-speaking GC.
Though supported by two successful experiences in Central
America, The Rough Season is a bespoke, culture-specific
product fashioned with the English-speaking GC m nuind. The
settings for the programme in

wledge is a ="i'rmso tatinsda ncnts
music and "well-loved"
stereotypes will be readily
hing... recognisable to any inhabitant
or even seasoned visitor to the
Alexander Pope sub-region. The methodology
counts upon the creative use of a unique style of the educational
theatre for the delivery of key messages in an entertaining, non-
condescending manner and is the artistic creation of Arts-in-
Action at the Centre for Creative and Festival Arts University
of the West Indies St Augustine.
National preparation and mitigation plans are cmucial, but one of
the many value-added features of The Rough Season is its focus on
community-empowennent as amrajor driving-force for implementation,
with more than a passing nod to the key role played by women in
our communities, particularly those poised precariously mn high-
vulnerability zones. Of course, bemng an educational tool. the show
also has children as special "target" audience.
This radio programme is emblematic of the tangible results
made possible through joint and coordinated efforts amongst
various organizations, namely: the~Association of Caribbean
States, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red
Crescent Societies, the UN International Strategy for Disaster
Reduction and the Pan American Health Organisation, which
joined efforts in order to bring this project to fruition. Now,
with the generous support of the Canadian High Commission
in Trinidad and Tobago, the twin island nation will become the
pilot for the airing of the show, which will premiere next
Monday 24th July on 90.5 FM at II.00am and Heartbeat 103.5
FM Radio for Women at 12.45pm as well -as on Tuesday 25th
July on 195.5 _FM at 2.45pm. Please check the media for further

AS WE in the Greater Caribbean (GC) finally get around
to ushering in the Hurricane Season after the long World
Cup hiatus on our economies, governments, scandals and
all the.other usual amenities with which human existence
is blessed, and with memories of Ivan the Terrible still
fresh upon the mind, one cannot but notice the marked
improvement in our region's attitudes towards the subject
of disaster prevention and mitigation.
And this, even when compared to the same period last year.
it is clear that when Ivan in 2004 and the 27 storms of
2005 barreled through or near our region, we finally put it
through our collective skull, at least at a certain level, that
natural disasters only happen to
other peo le, until the happen : 'A little kr

Grenada, where most of our
brethren were left homeless and
jobless almost overnight, is dangerous,
certainly sobering, and our
reaction, though a good sign of
maturity, is also proof of our collective bad memory. Remember
that if God were Trini or Venezuelan (yeah, we have that saying

too, which speaks volumes about its veracity) Hurricane Flora
in 1963 would not have killed over 7,000, nor visited such
destruction upon Tobago that it changed the economy of the
island from cash-crop agriculture to tourism and fishing with *
one fell swoop. Neither would the mudslides near Caracas in
1999 have taken tens of thousands of lives.
Though the current renaissance in interest regarding
preparedness and mitigation, as opposed to the traditional focus
on response, can only be applauded, there still remains a general
tendency towards a philosophy of the physical, whereby
preparedness and mitigation are seen as the act of stockpiling
certain goods and keeping the helicopter fuelled (both excellent
ideas, don't get me wrong). Another tendency in the same vein
tells us that early-warning is a synonym for megabucks radar
systems and millionaire buoys. However, preparedness and
mitigation when conceived as a year-round exercise in saving
lives and property as well as maximising the potential for
recovery is much more. It is a state of mind, and the only

THE order of birth in a
family forms a strong psycho-
logical basis for later devel-
opment; personal adjust-
ment, vocational choices, and
social emotional coping. Un-
derstanding the conditions
and dynamics of early child-
hood experiences within the
family significantly helps an
individual to identify prob-
lems of later life (1) we are
not always conscious of how
we are living the roles
learned fr6m our place in the
fam~ily. Developmental psy-
chologists agree that early
life experiences strongly in-
fluence all aspects of later
development. This is a very
broad topic with numerous
variables. This paper cannot
presume to cover all the vari-
ables. A few characteristic
features will be discussed.

Birth order is a naturally
occurring phenomenon in a
family. It is the relationship and
process of growth, of power and
dominance, sharing and caring
with this primary social unit, the
family. It is parents and siblings
relating in terms of wishes, at-
titudes, and needs. These con-
siderations take into account
the significant role of heredity
potential and early sociolpsy-
chological environment, if you
are large or small; dark or fair,
intelligent or dull. The parents'
own experiences, growth and
maturity with themselves and
with their children will evolve
with time. This interaction will
play a significant role in chan-
nelling the birth order develop-
Most people, as teenagers
or young adults, have already
recognized some of the
behavioral relationships of
birth order; "My sister always
gets everything"; "They always
give him everything"; "I always
get the leftovers." These are not

careers, delayed marriages,
and the cost of child-rearing
are major considerations. In
personality development, the
only child may share many
traits with the youngest,
being highly protected, very
playfill and dependent. This
is especially true if he is born
several years after the
parents' marriage and there
was an expressed parental
need for a child. Being
pampered and spoiled as not
uncommon. Inability in
decision-making is the result.
The only girl may identify
strongly with her father and
may want the conventional
role of wife and mother. If the
father is absent, it may push
her to assume an
overprotective role towards the
mother. The boys, more than
the girls, wiHl display greater
self confidence and higher
self-esteem. As a beneficiary
of all things available in the
family, the only child may
grow to become optimistic,
but continues to seek
attention. Where. the only
child is born early in the
marriage, he may be treated
as the first born and where
parents see him as an
extension of the family. Only
children tend to marry early
and often talk of having more
than one child to ease some
of their own loneliness.

ten leads to success in business
and in life. They often com-
plain about the attention to the
oldest and the youngest and so
little for them; thus the hard-
ships of growing up and vulner-
able to maladjustments. They
are more likely to have prob-
lems with teachers and with
other boys and girls. These
middle born are more excitable,
demanding and attention-seek-
ing and less dependable than the
older or younger children. One
of three girls has a more diffi-
cult time and are serious, anx-
ious, and are more self re-

companies by special privileges
from doting parents. However,
he may go relatively unnoticed
in a large burdened family; from
a family pet to a family ridicule,
from being spoiled to being de-
prived. The last born is fre-
quently very popular, light-
hearted, cheerful, and playful.
They are usually dependent,
even over dependent, upon oth-
ers because parents and older
siblings frequently solve or help
solve their problems. The traits
of playfulness and dependency
are rewarded and, in turn, he
finds comfort in the role, thus
spiraling and mastering the
playfulness. This will readily be
translated into personal and pro-
fessional life. Senator Edward
Kennedy and Anna Freud are
good examples. In marriage, he
will always expect someone will
take care of him. When the age
gap is significant with the pre-
vious child, the dependency be-
comes stronger. His attempt to
become assertive is often frus-
trating because he lacks the skills.
There is often a confusion of so-
cial reality. It is not unusual that
they will develop a fixation on
an older brother or sister. Mov-
ing far away from the family for
marriage or professional reasons
may become debilitating.

SThe incidence of the only
child is growing as families
choose when and how many
children they will have. Dual

and by siblings. These real or
perceived behaviours will
strongly shape the individual's
self-esteem and hence his rela-
These relationships and at-
titudes seem to fall into certain
patterns; the first born, middle
born, last bomn, and only child.
Each one demonstrates unique
behaviours, not only as indi-
viduals but as a pattern of the
order in which he was born. A
study of the United States Con-
gress suggests that many of the
Senators are first born. Diplo-
mats are mainly middle born.

The first born is the only
child for a little while and dur-
ing that time he will develop
traits as an only child. During
this period, he enjoys the full
warmth and attention of the
parents, grandparents and even
the extended family. The mother
plays a more dominant role than
the father who often becomes
the disciplinarian. As a result,
the father may appear to be
harsh to the older and benevo-
lent to the younger siblings. The
shock and separation of the
second birth would be lasting;
the dethroning effect, the sepa-
ration of mother during this
new birth, at home or in the
hospital. The shift of attention
from him will create jealousy
and he must draw attention to
himself. Regression into temper
tantrums, defecating or urinat-
ing on his clothes. Attacking the
new baby is not unusual. The
first bomn is often conservative,
reflecting the values and atti-
tudes of the parents. He will
be obedient and full of self-con-
trol. As male or female, the first
bomn carries the pattern of the
older generation. They need ap-
proval, are susceptible to social
pressure, and will change opin-
ion to agree with others. They
will tend to conform, especially
when confronted with authority,

prefer to avoid conflicts, and
seek others for support. They
are more competitive and high
achievement-oriented Anthro-
pologist Margaret Mead was an
excellent example of first born.
Gender differences in first born
suggest that women are more
nurturing than men, but may
develop the dominant-role of
"The Queen Bee Syndrome."
She may even become the first
born where the first bomn male

The second born must cope
with a powerful first born and
so is at a competitive disadvan-
tage. He quickly learns ways of
adapting. As a result, he takes
advantage, as a baby, of paren.
tal protection. His techniques of
meeting his needs are less direct
and more subtle. With an older
sister, he becomes more self-re-
liant and develops high self-es-
teem. In adult years, he may be-
come dependent on the other
sister. Where he is allowed to
become assertive, he may have
marital problems, especially if
the wife is a first born. He may
become domineering with
women. A younger sister, espe-
cially if there is an older sister,
is well babied by two mothers,
adjusts more comfortably, has
good personal relationships,
marries and has children earlier.
Younger sons in their
assertiveness are more likely to
develop physical skills, engage
in more body-contact sports,
and are very fond of people
their own age. Unlike the first
born, they are less likely to con-
form to authority, but do well
with peer groups.

The middle born of three
children is in a rather difficult
position. While the second of
two is not openly competitive,
the second of three is squeezed
in a position that stimulates
maximum competition. This of-

proachful. Bonnie Parker of
Bonnie and Clyde was middle of
three girls. If she is the only girl
between two boys, she is more
relaxed, emotionally mature and
gentler than the younger ones.
If the parents wanted a boy in-
stead, she will never outlive that
With a fourth child, the
middle child shifts to a more ad-
vantageous position because he
inherits some of the advantages
of the first bomn. Middle born
male of two or three females is
more likely to be more adaptive
and are very constructive with

THE six Rotary Clubs in Guyana will this week have
their plans for projects for the 2006/7 Rotary year re-
Sviewed when the District Governor, Mi3 Victor Pilgrim
I.pays his first official visit to Guyana.
A press release from Rotary said Pilgrim will discuss
the programmes of the clubs in meetings with the Board of
SDirectors of each and will have the opportunity to address-
Sthe entire family of Rotary in Guyana at two joint meet-
ings tomorrow and Wednesday evenings.
Accompanied by Assistant District Governor, Mr.
Keith Williams, and the Club President of Guyana,
Pilgrim will pay a courtesy call on President Bharrat
Jagdeo. He will also take the opportunity whilst in
Guyana to make site visits to some of the clubss. prqjectsi
the release said.
Pilgrim assumed responsibility on July 1, 2006 for Dis-
trict #7030 which stretches from St Kitts in the north, cov-
ering the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States, the
French-speaking territories of Martinique and Guadeloupe,
through Barbados and Trimidad and Tobago to the three
Guianas to the south,
He did share his vision for the Rotary Year, with its
theme 'Lead The Way' when he led discussions when
Rotarians from across the District met for the Annual Dis-
trict Conference and Assembly held towards the end of
April at the National Convention Ce~iat Liliendaal.
Pilgrim has been a Rotari~an for 21 years, joining the
Rotary Club of St Augustine in 1985 and serving twice as
President of that club.
He has been very active in the promotion of: young

Homeowners must know that boundaries between
contiguous lots or portions of a divided lot are recognized by
way of paals. The cost of such markings shall be borne jointly
by the owners. However, the City Engineer shall settle any
dispute as to the cost or description of such paals. .
According to the regulations which guide this Council,
continuous boundary fencing shall be erected between all lots

adjoining owners must manage the cost jointly. Again, the
Council has the authority to settle any dispute of the cost of
such fencing. .
In cases where a lot drain is constructed along a boundary

fencing is required to mark the same there shall either be a

also did not respond to, the suggestion that the U.S. winnings

holding tax that would be paid to the U.S. Treasury.
But with a business that is now so vast and which ob~vi-
ously derives a significant portionu of its market from the U.S..
it would seem that a regimne of r-egulation. licensing and taxation
would be more beneficial to th~e U.S. than outright prohib~itionl.
Such a regime would earn the government considerable tax
revenues. allow it to guard against abuse, and permit it to up-
hold the liberalised trade rules for cross-border transactions that
it has itself advocated strongly in the WTO.
F~or such a regime to be adopted in the U.S. requires new
thinking about Internet ganibling. In the absence of a strong
lobby to promote such thinking inl the U.S. Congress. the lobby
to maintain a prohibition on Internet gambling will prevail.

what will happen to his hotel

which was channa bombed during the crime wave.
The allegations against him were levelled by a self-confessed
:informant, who suffered personal loss, and in order to attract pub-
licity, "he would have identified, as he did, some senior person."
He is clear that the press at that time, "seeking to grasp at any-
thing that would create some sensationalism," latched on to the is-
sue and blew it out of proportion.
"I have done what I did within the confines of the law," he
maintains. He was not home during the period of anxiety and fear
when Minister Satyadeow Sawh, his siblings Rajpat Rai and
Pulmattie Persaud, and guard Curtis Robertson were slain at Earl's
Cor LI
He doesn't want to say much on the issue, except that Minis-
ter Sawh lived at an area that probably lent itself much easier to
the commission of criminal activity without detection.
He refused also to speculate on whether the killings were po-
litically or criminally motivated. However, he bases his take on the
issue on the fact that ballistics tests showed that the weapons used
in the April 24l attack were the same that were irsed in a massacre
at Agricola on the East Bank of Demerara earlier in the year.
He posits it does not mean that since the same weapons were
used, the same operatives used them, but he said it would not be
unreasonable to infer that.

Looking to the upcoming elections, Gajraj has more of a con-
cern, rather than a fear, of the violence which has plagued the polls
since 1992. He was appointed in 1999 and so knows well of the
experiences of 2001. In fact, the day he was being sworn into of-
fice in early April that year, an entire city block went up in flames
in uncontrollable anti-government protests.
"'1Te President has said the security forces would be on alert
and deployed as necessary. I think people have grown to realise that
elections are the main planks on which our democracy rests, and they
have begun to recognize the importance of elections and to ensure
that it is peaceful, free and fair, and free from fear," he says.
When he demitted office at the end of May 2005, President
Jagdeo named him High Commissioner to India. He left unceremo-
niously. No official announcement was made. It was perhaps for
good reason. A controversy that started to seep in after it was leaked
to the media, died down quickly.
He stood as an integral part of the government as Minister of
Home Affairs, and he took on the new appointment with similar pride.
"Foreign Affairs is a very important ministry; to be given the
opportuity to represent one's country is a signal honour," he says.
Gajraj was intrigued too by vast India. With over a billion people
and an emerging super power, he was being assigned to New Delhi
to cash in on India's changing fortunes. The High Commission was
closed mn 1991, but with two visits by President Jagdeo, the deci-
sion was taken to reopen the High Commission, especially so given
India's US$20M financing of the Providence Cricket Stadium being
built to host the quarter final matches of Cricket World Cup 2007.
Gajraj saw first hand the construction last week when he visited
with Tripathi.
He admires India and its unique standing in the world. Having
emerged out of a perilous economic state in the early 90s to a boom-
ing economy, India, under the leadership of economist Manmohan
Singh, is on an upward trend, growing at eight per cent per annum.
He sees similarities between Guyana and India both former
colonies of the. British and with an agriculture base. India has a lot
of potential that Guyana can benefit from.
Gajraj was hand in hand with the discussions in Georgetown
last week that will see new projects for Guyana. Upon his return
to New Delhi, he will focus his energies on these, one being the
establishment of an Information and Communications Technologies
(ICT) village for Guyana.
Through Tripathi's visit, the Indian government has expressed
willingness to explore this possibility and he intends to pursue it
aggressively, including securing the hardware and other logistics that
would be necessary for implementation.
'"The ICT village can be a reality in the very near future," he
said optimistically.
Trade between Guyana and India has improved. He did not have
direct figures to be quoted, but says it is significant. Reflecting on
the India trade fair last year and this year, he says 100 business-
men came down to showcase their products.
Further, he has spoken with both Guyanese and Indian busi-
nCSSlnen who have expressed interest in doing business, and the
result, he is sure, can only redound to the benefit of both countries.
There is an increase in trade of forestry products, and Guyana is
looking at a request to have sugar sold to India.
Gajr~aj too wants to see the number of Guyanese benefiting from
free training in India increased. One hundred students are pursuing various disciplines in India, but he wants to see more there.
However, Gajraj's plan is to see Indian experts come to Guyana
to conduct training programmes in various fields. including security
and culture.
He feels a large number of persons will benefit this way, as
opposed to one person travelling to India to study a particular field
While he is doing that, Gajraj is also working on getting Guyana
known in India, not only in New Delhi, but in Mumbai. Chennai
and other key states. In fact, he says Guyanese studying in India
are doing their lot.
He-informs too that there are several Non-Governmnental
Organizations that are friendly with the Guyana High Commission.
A Guyana-India Freicindl Relations Associatiosn has been set up and
this year organised celebrations for Arrival Day and Independence
Free from controversy, G;ajraj is brimming with the suc-
cesses .of Gulyana-India relations.

THE Art of Living
Foundation, a non-profit,
charitable organisation
affiliated with the United
Nations, is offering its world
renowned Yoga of Breath
course in Guyana, from July
28-31 at the Critchlow
Labour College.
It is also offering, for the
first time in Guyana, its Youth
Empowerment Seminar (YES)

13-21, coping skills and
empowers them with innovative
techniques to calm their minds,
relax their nervous system,
increase their energy levels and
boost their confidence levels to
better handle peer pressure and
deal with challenging situations.
Flagging the course as the
"best summer programme any
parent can enroll their teenager
into", the organisation pointed
out that rather than the current
emphasis on academic
achievement, the "true measure
of success in life should really
be., health, happiness,
enthusiasm and the ability to

WITH a frightening disregard
for the danger it poses, the
phenomenon of Guyanese
stealing electricity has grown
exponentially over the years
and the Guyana Power and
Light Inc. (GPL) said it has
embarked on a muti-pronged
and pro-active approach to
battle the growing scourge.
In an interview last week
with the Sunday Chronicle, Chief
Executive Officer of GPL, Mr.
Bharat Dindyal said illegal elec-
tricity connections is a phenom-
enon which has been around for
at long time and has basically
taken different forms and
"Butl the scourge hats grown
much larger over the past eight
rto twelve months." he said.
According to himn. electricity
theftr is a crime everyone pays
forl both in terms of' cost and
safety, including putting onle's
life and the lives of others at risk.
While GPL is doing all it can to
prevent theft, Dindyal appealed
to the Guiyanese public for help
in getting rid of this scourge.
He said when customers
tamper with their service connec-
tions otr mecters to avoid paying
their fanir share, or when persons
source electricity from an illegal
connection or network, then the
coverage of those losses would
tendt to drive-up everyone's cost
of' service.
But the problems does more
than just increase the cost of elec-
tricity. Tampering with meters
and wiring. andl other f'ormls of
illegal connections, can result in
serious fires, injury and even
death. It poses serious datnger to
the thief. to people living nearby,
to children living andl playing in
the area and to even ;Inimalis.
Dindyal sail.
"We are very concerned that
children at home on extended
holidays could be in daunger from
live wires in their playing areas."
Dindyal said.
"While we have stepped up
the campaign against illegal con-
nections, and while some prntms
and guardians make efforts to
protect their children froml harm.
others are continuing without
conscience to endanger their
lives." he addedct.

GPL's technicians found
in their investigations what
they termed "an unbelievable
array" of domestic and non-
domestic wires running in
every direction from the
generator through trees and
trenches, down poles, laid
underground, passed over and
under metal fences and other
structures in and out of water.
According to Dindyal, the
people of that section of Sophia
were found to be "living danger-

alluded to was one which oc-

'There is no way that we could over-

emphasise the absolute danger that this
Situation poses.'
Chief Executive Officer, GPL Bharat Dindyal

Dindyal is of the view that
the phenomenon of illegal con-
nections rose to new heights in
the early 1990s with the virtual
explosion in Guyana of squatter
settlements, coupled with the

wire (generally used to rewind
motors) were attached directly to
the overhead networks.
In some instances, fish
hooks were used as connectors
with pieces of common plastic
as insulation over the joined
Dindyal said the most trou-
bling clement of the whole sce-
nario is the danger that illegal
connections pose to adults, ani-
mals and particularly children liv-
ing and playing in the areas.
The wires used by the
perpetrators are most unsuit-
able for conducting electricity
at that kind of voltage, he said,
and wondered how so many
people have been able to pro-
cure such large amounts of
telephone cable and run them
sometimes for miles on or un-
der the ground, and through
drains and canals from, the
networks to their homes.
"There is no way that we
could over-emphasise the abso-
lute danger that this situation
poses," the Chief Executive Of-
Tice of GPL contended.
"What has happened in a
number of communities is that
they have become a virtual
minefield where everybody is
exposed to constant danger,
D~indyal posited.
"If you envision-a scenario
where your have all these illegal
wirecs running, there is no secu-
rity lighting in these areas and
people ar~e walking in darkness

Asked whether in the com-
ing weeks one can see a more
pro-active approach from GPL
in the campaign against illegal
connections, Dindyal said,
"Most certainly".
He said that GPL is in the
process of developing an in-
house security unit the fraud
squad which will have the re-
sources to go out into the fields
in a relentless campaign against
illegal connections.
"I think the fact that we
never had the resources to deal
with this in a comprehensive
manner has allowed the problem
to escalate," he reasoned.
"We are not charging every-
body out there; we are trying to
deal with the ringleaders, the
people who are actively trying
to establish these networks and
sustain them...But the company
has to take a stance." he de-
"I think what we are trying
to do and which we think will.
be more effective than the pen-
alties. is to ensure that we go out
as frequently as possible to re-
move these illegal connections,"
he said.

more or less, then one can ap-
preciate the level of the danger,"
he said.
Added to this is the fact that
these communities have not only
adults coming into contact with
these wires and being killed but
also children, the CEO said.
"I don't think the danger to
which they expose themselves is
really worth the risk," he pos-
With regards to fish-hooks
and copper wires being used to
make illegal connections in
Berbice. Dindyal dismissed the
ludicrous notion that this is the
famous 'Guyanese ingenuity and
creativity'. It is nothing more
than "just plain downright sui-
cidal", he said.
"I think we should really
give the proper value to human
life and I think that the environ-
ment in which we live today, the
value of the human life has more
or less depreciated
significantly...One must place a
very high premium on the lives
of people in their community
and even their own life because
some of the peopic who are: in-
volved in these illegal connec-
tions have been killed," he
pointed out.

ally been listed for electrifi-

end of the tunnel," he posited.
"And we are hoping that
people will take this on board
and wait patiently rather than
expose themselves to this obvi-
ous danger," he urged.
He also dismissed the excuse
that because persons do not have
access to electricity, they tend to
steal it, pointing out Sophia as a
pnime example of this-
"Even with electricity being
available in Sophia, people still
continue to make illegal connec-
tions," he said.
"We have actually ex-

tended networks since 2004
to allow about 27,000 cus-
tomers to access power and
although about 27,000 cuis-
tomers can now access power.
less than 2,000 have chosen
to do so. Persons are just not
taking up the power, so the
excuse of not having access to
real power is no longer valid."
According to him, a con-
sultant recently estimated
that the company loses some
$2.5B annually due to theft of
In terms of gauging this over
the past years, Dindyal said the
situation has gotten worse.
"'The survival of this com-
pany depends on our ability to
reduce losses and to do so
quickly. The fact is the tariffs,
as they are now, are at a level

has the human resources capac-

throughout the country, Yarde
replied in the affirmative, stat-
ing that the union has members
in all the administrative regions.
However, he added that con-
straints of finance may pose a
limitation in the monitoring pro-
Yarde also explained that the
union will seek to avoid dupli-
cation of the observing process
by not placing observers at
those polling stations where it
feels are being adequately moni-
tored by other observers.
But the union also has some
concerns, Yarde indicated, and
one of them is what he de-
scribed astet sud enA iu sta~

Bureau (EAB).
Acting General Secretary of
the union, Ms. Chandrawattie
Persaud, expressed concerns of
the challenging of the voters
both mn the high court and pub-
licly by opposition parties.
'"This dispute has to be ad-
dressed and steps taken to re-
move the fear that elections
would be conducted with a list
that is both inflated with the
names of illegitimate voters and
excludes the names of persons
who are qualified to vote," Ms.
Persaud declared.
She added: "The GPSU, like
other stakeholders, notes with
concern, the length of time mat-
ters have engaged the attention
of the High Court before a de-
cision is given. Since this cur-
rent issue is also engaging the
attention of the High Court, and
taking into consideration that it
is definitely a matter of signifi-
cant importance, the GPSU be-
lieves that the highest priority
should be given to this mat-
Chief Justice Carl Singh last
Thursday issued a statement
stating that once the rules of the
court are complied with, matters
pertaining to the impending clec-
tions will be treated with ur-
gency as the seriousness of
these issues is fully recognised.
Persaud said the GPSU
supports the principles of de-
mocracy and believes that a
democratic state is one that is
governed by laws and where re-
spect for the nights of citizens
is shown and enforced.
LWe see general and re-
gional elections as necessary
periodic events in this pro-
cess and not as the beginning
and ending of democracy. We
challenge policies which por-
tray the tyranny of the ma-
jority or that are in anyway
autocratic or dictatorial," Ms.
`Persand declared.

By Chamanlall Naipaul

THE Guyana Public Service
Union (GPSU) has been ac-
credited as a domestic ob-
server for general and re-
glonal elections which have
been set for August 28.
President of the GPSU, Mr.
Patrick Yarde made the an-
noun cement yesterday at a
press conference held at the
union's Regent and New Garden
Streets headquarters.
Yarde said his union feels
strongly that the holding of free
and transparent elections which
is acceptable to all parties is a
prerequisite to create the neces-
sary climate to move the coun-
tpry if rad,aand ohe unio '
contribute towards the achieve-
ment of this objective.
The GPSU, he said, also
feels strongly that the voters list
should be equally acceptable by
all parties and queried whether
in the wake of the announced
date of the elections, it would
still be possible to sanitise the
The union has offered sev-
eral recommendations which it
feels would help to improve
confidence in the electoral pro-
cess and allay fears of perceived
irregularities of the public, Yarde
said, while assuring that
whether the recommendations
are accepted or not, the union
will participate as an observer,
Among the recommenda-
tions made by the union are: us-
age of an indelible ink which
cannot be easily removed by
washing, fingerprinting of each
voter on the counterfoil of the
ballot sheet; and taking photo-
graphs of every person who
votes. The union also recom-
mends that observers should be
at each polling station before
balloting begins, in order to wit-
ness an empty box, and remain
at the polling station continu-
ously during the voting process,
and until the completion of the
counting of ballots after close of
poll. The observers should also
be there for the reconciliation
and finalismng of the statement
of poll. A signed copy of the
completed statement of poll
should be given to scrutineers
and observers present at each
polling station.
With respect to finger print-
ing of each voter on the
counterfoil of the ballot sheet,
Yarde explained that should
there be a need to revisit the re-
sults of the elections as a result
of controversy, the print would
serve as a means of double-
checking or verification.

LONDON (Reuters)The inquest into Princess Diana's
death is likely to be delayed~a the royal coroner quit,
blaming the work load of his main job as the coroner for
the county of Surrey in southern England. newspapers said
The inquest conducted by Michael Burgess mnto Diana, who
was killed along with her companion Dodi at Fayed and theh
driver in a Paris car crash nine years ago, has been under way
since 2004.

Royal Coroner Michael surgess is shown posing for
the media at the opening of the British inquest into
thel1997 death of Britain's Princess Diana, in central '
London, in this January 6, 2004 file photo. (Toby
M~elville TM/AS~A/CRB/Reuters)
Burgess has asked for a senior judicial figure to take on the
case, the newspapers said.
An inquiry headed by John Stevens, the former head of the
Metropolitan Police, into the circumstances surrounding Diana's
death was expected to deliver a report to Burgess next month.
Burgess had asked Stevens to examine allegations that
Diana's death was not an accident
A French inquiry in 1999 ruled that the accident was caused
by the driver being drunk and driving too fast did little to stem
rumours of a conspiracy and that Diana and Dodi were killed.
Burgess previously said he wanted the inquest to put an
end to the speculation.
On the day the inquest began in January 2004. reports said
that Diana had written a letter to her fotrmer butler P'aul Burrell
10 months before her death in which she said she suspected
Charles was trying to kill her.
'This particular phase in my life is the muost dangerous."
the letter said. according to excerpts leaked to the British media.
"Mly husband is planning 'an accident' inl my car, brake failure
andi serious headl injury."'

NEW YORK (Reuters) Emphasising teamwork may be popular in workplaces across America,
but a new study says companies that focus more on individual achievement produce more in-
novative ideas.
TIhe findings mnay support the view that creative companies need to encourage differences rather
than build teamwork, which leads to conformity. said Barry Staw, professor at the University of Cali-
fornia at Berkeley's Haas School of Business and co-author of the study.
"The more you emphasise collectivity and team membership and orientation, the lower is the cre-
alivity." Stalw said. "So much of creativity is being different. being willing to deviate and take chances
and be the odd person out."
U.S. wo~kp~laces halve mnoved toward teamnwork and awany from individualism for decades, origi-
na~lly ha~vingF borrlowed techniques from Japanese business models, experts say.
Staw~ and c~o-aut hor Jack Goncalo of Cornlell U university, whose study "'Individualism -Collectivism
atnd Grloupll CreaC~tivity'," was published inl the mnost recent issue of Organisationa~l Behaviour and Hu-
man1I Dc~iSionl Pr`oceSSeS, conducted experimentIIS with teams of college students.
The students were asked to think as individuals or collectively as they devised new business uses
for a hypothetical space left vacant by a mismannaged restaurant.
Individualist groups generated more ideas, 37 on average. than collective groups: which had an
average of 26 ideas, the study said. Ideas from individual-oriented groups were more creative than
those by collective groups.
Even at companies that don't consciously emlpha~size teamwork, forces build conformnity, Staw
said. New hires tend to be people who fit in, co-workers grow to think alike and people who don't fit
leave. he said.
"If` you want innovation, you have to seek out the person who is different and the person who is
not like everyone else," said Staw.
"There will be costs," he added. "You may have to tolerate people who are kind of jerks. S'ome of
the most innovative people can be people who don't get along very well in social situations and -may
be people you don't want to spend a lot of time with.'
The findings fit the view that creative companies need to give creative people~autonomyr, said John
Chalhleger of Chicago-based Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. workplace consultants.
"Ilf you are in a lab or you're a newspaper reporter or a creative advertising person, you really
want more freedom and independence because yo~u want to generate great ideas,". (le sai ,.

heartburn, or at least the pain and discomfort as before. With a new
diet, hard as it was to get used to, and better eating habits, I seem
to be a fitter person, not getting tired so quickly.
We should be glad that at the recent CARICOM heads of
Government Meeting, the participants, including Guyana's Minister
of Foreign Affairs standing in for President Jagdco who was busy with
the people's business at home, issued a statement urging more attention
to the region's health. People should eat better and exercise more.
The main resource of Guyana, as with other countries, is its
people. They should ~remain healthy so as to continue to build up
the country. Over the last decade or so, we have made significant
strides in almost every economic sector benefiting Guyanese of all
races. We now have a democratic government, a free press and all
that is wholesome in socio-economic and political spheres. These
are indisputable facts and one isn't politically partisan is saying so.
We have our problems. Which country hasn't? In fairness, there are
those who say the scale of the difficulties and the slow rate of
improvement relative to other nations are of concern.
An important Ministry in any country is Health. After many
years of neglect, the health sector in Guyana, including our
sometimes overlooked health personnel such as nurses and doctors,
have made sterling advances. This has occurred under both the
watches of Minister Teixeira and now Minister Ramsammy. Yet,
we still have a lot of challenges. There is, for example, the relatively
high rate of HIV infection.
One of the ways individual citizens and community
organizations can assist your government and deepen our ongoing
development is to closely monitor our personal habits and lifestyle.
Adopt and stick to a healthy diet. Cut down on the fat and exercise '
more. We must follow the wise counsel of doctors and health
personnel including heeding the simple but truthful message: "You
are what you eat".
We end on a happy note. On a follow up visit, I again pleaded,
almost going down on my knees: "Doctor, I beg you. Let me have
my beer or a lil Guyana rum and orange juice at dinner time. It will
help me settle me food"
"Okay, every now and again. But only every now and again. And I
want you to come back in six months time for another check up."

I was married last year. In January of this ~year I moved
out and filed for divorce. It was the best move I ever made.
;I am a woman who wants so much more out of life than
she was promised during her engagement. I realise now
that marriage takes two people for it to work and be happy,
but only one to make it miserable.
I moved back home with my wonderful, loving, and sup-
portive parents. My father who ~always reads the paper has
caused an addiction for me to your column. I actually look for-
ward to getting and reading the Sunday paper. I feel empow-
ered when I read the stories of your troubled couples. Don't
ever stop giving the wonderful advice you give.


May, when we watch a rising moon on the horizon, it looks
enormous, but when we look at the moon high in the sky, it
appears far smaller. Actually, the twio moons are the same size.
You can prove this to yourself by rolling a newspaper into a
tube. When the tube is just big enough to encircle the rising
moon, it will just barely encircle the moon at any other height.
The horizon moon is' an illusion which fools our senses, In
the same way there is an illusion which fools us when we don't
have anyone. Everywhere we look ve see only happy couples,
and we feel like the only person who is alone. But once we are
with the right person, we can see how many lonely people there
are and how many unhappy couples.
Thank you for your kind words. The best advice we can
give is this: become an aficionado of great relationships.
Notice those people of all ages who' have an extraordinary
connection to one another. That is what you are looking
for. Don't settle for anything less.

vice because of .a special three month offer,
but I'm not sure I'm ready for it. I may have
jumped the gun and gotten way over my head. My
hesitancy comes from not being where I want to
be careerwise.
I am not anl unintelligent person, but I did struggle inl college. I
found out last year, at age 39, that I have anl attention deficit disor
der. That explains a lot. I ended up putting college on hold and f,-
cused on building a computer business. It thrived in the early '90s,
but I never found time to date. I was always "too busy."
Presently my business isn't doing well. Other companies have
made parts of mly business obsolete, and they can offer services at
a lower rate or for free. I'm not sure if it's the right time to start
dating. I have very little excess income and am still trying to work
out how to return to college and finish my degree.
I fear coming across as a loser. I'm not exactly the hottest catch
on paper, and it's too embarrassing to explain all this when some-

By George Barclay

IN June 1958, the Judicial
Committee of the Privy
Council comprisinlg five L~aw
Lords, including Lor~d Den-
ninlg, allowed an appeal from
a decision of the British
G~uiana Court of Criminal
Appeal, and ordered that con-
victed murderer, Fiaz Bakshl,
be alcquitted of the crime or
face a new trial.
'This happened in the case
of the Baksh brothers, Fiaz and
Nabbi who were found guilty
by a Demerara Assize jury of
the murder of Mohamed Saffie.
On appeal to the British
Guiana Court of Criminal Ap-
peal, that Court accepted fresh
evidence where there were ma-
terial discrepancies between the
oral testimony of witnesses for
the crown and their statement

to the investigating Police.
Comlprisingg the Judicial
Commlnittee of the Prlivy Coun-
cil, on appeac;l fromn the Su~prem~e
Court of' British Guyalnn were
Lord Rieid, L~ord TIucker, Lordl
Somervell of Harrow, Lordl
Donning and Mr. L. D. de Silva.
Baksh and his brother
Nabbi were~ charged jointly with
mnurder by shooting Saffic. At
the trial, it had been a~lleged thalt
the evidence of` theCse witnesses
wars false. There were mlaterial
discrepancies between the oral
testimony of these witnesses at
the trial and the written state-
ment they had made. The Court
of Criminal Appeal quashed the
conviction against Nabbi, but
dismissed the appellant's (Fiaz)
appeal on the ground that the
written statements contained
nothing favourable to Fiaz.

The case for the prosecu-
tion was that the deceased man
was killed shortly after 3 a.m.
on June 12, 1956, by shots from
a gun fired by one or other of
the two accused acting together
with the common design of kill-
ing or doing grievous bodily
harm to the deceased.
The case rested largely
upon the identification of the
accused by three prosecution
witnesses named Mohamed
Haniff, the deceased's brother-
in-law, Mohamed Nazir, and
Bebe Mariam, who had been
living with the deceased.
Haniff at the trial swore
that on June 12, he was living
with the deceased at a house at
Clonbrook, East Bank,
Demerara. Also living in the
house were Nazir and his wife
and Bebe Mariam. He awoke
about 3 a.m. and helped the de-
:ceased and Nazir load a boat
with vegetable produce, and
then returned to the house with
the deceased. Nazir and his wife
and:Mlariam went away with
.the boat. He went to lie on his
bed, and before Nazir returned
with the boat he heard gun fire
from the kitchen direction and
`went to the window with his
.torch. He saw two men whom

he could identify.
He shouted to them
"Alright Fiaz and Jacoob no use
run anymore; I see you al-
ready." (Nabi Baksh was
known as Jacoob) He saw a gun
in Fiaz's right hand. He ran
downstairs and saw deceased
lying as the top of the step
leading from the kitchen. Nazir
was there, and they lifted the
dead man and placed him on his
He said he had been -ac-
quainted with both accilsed for
three or four weeks before June
Nazir swore that after he
had taken his wife andBebe
Mariam with the vegetable
produce to the bus, when he
reached the spot where he
usually tied his boat, he
heard a shot. He ran under-
neath his house and from
there saw the appellant and
Nabbi crossing a trench-near
the house. He heard Haniff
shout to them "Alright Fiaz
and Jacoob, don't run. -I see
you." He turned~his torch on
them and saw the appellant
had a gun.
Mariam swore she and the
deceased were awakened about
2.30 a.m. on June 12 by the
barking of dogs andb ya torch-
Slight, she saw the appellant and
Nabbi Baksh about 48 yards
:Iaway from the house. She said
she had known them for about
two years.
Neither of the accused gave
evidence but in statements from
tye dockedene thatf tceeyower
murder. They gave an account of
their movements, and said that
the statements they had given
to the police were true. They
both called a7 number of wit-
nesses in support of their alibis.
on May 137. 1957, counsel
Swho had appeared on behalf
of Nabbi, at the trial swore to
an affidavi stating that at his
request, the Solicitor G~en-
eral had allowed him to in-
spect; thle statements made to
the police by the three w~it-
niesses on thle morniing of
Jluner U. 1956, w-hichl hadl not

On appeal to the Privy
Council, that board held:-
"If the statements afforded
material for serious challenge to
the credibility; of reliability of
these witnesses on matters vi-
tal to the prosecution's case, it
followed that the defence might
have destroyed the whole case
against both accused or at any
rate shown that the evidence of
these witnesses could not be re-
lied upon to displace the evi-
dence in support of the alibis
put forward by the accused.
The credibility of the witnesses
could not be treated as divisible
and accepted against one and re-
jected against the other.

The Board allowed the
The facts of the case as set
out in the judgment of the Privy
Council disclosed that the ap-
pellant Fiaz was convicted of
murder on December 5, 1956,
after a trial before Justice Clare
and a jury in the Supreme Court
of British Guiana.
Both prisoners appealed to
the Court of Criminal for Brit-
ish Guiana and on June 7, 1957.
Fiaz's appeal was heard by the
Board on February 13, 1958.

that the evidence of these

After examining the
statements and comparing them
with the sworn testimony at
the trial the Court of Criminal
Appeal in their judgment,
delivered on June 7, 1957, said:

ments showed serious dis-
crepancies and contradictions
in vital matters when com-
pared with the evidence given
by them at the trial.
The Court of Criminal ap-
peal accordingly allowed these
statements to be produced and
proved. They were found to
contain the following discrepan-
cies: Haniff, in his statement
had said that after he heard the
gunshot he looked out of the
window and shone his torch and
saw the appellant and another
man whom he did not know by
name on the parapet of the
trench dividing the yard and the
rice field, that he ran on the
bridge and was all the time
shouting "all right Fiaz, all you
don't run, me see all you two'.
Nazir had said that neither
he nor Haniff had shouted at the
men who were escaping because
they were afraid of being shot.
Mariam had said that when
she was awakened by the bark-

lant by the light of her husband's

That circle included persons like
A. J. Seymour, Cheddi and
Janet Jagan, Clement Brandt,
Father Francis Fenn, among
others. Searwar was part of the
Young Men's Guild led by E. A.
Q. Potter, a group that dis-

of an informal group labelled,
'Gang of Five', which included
Martin Carter, lan McDonald,
David DeCaires and Miles
Searwar entered the world
of work as a Class 2 Clerk in
the General Registry Office be-

reau of Public Information
(BPI), a move that started a
long, fruitful and satisfying ca-
reer as a public servant and ser-
vant of the people, locally, re-
gionally and internationally.
To be good servant he had
to master his trade. Between
1951 and 1952, by way of a

he earned a Diploma in Politics
and Economics from Oxford
University, returning home to

In radio land, especially the

of the country.
By the time Searwar was el-
evated to Chief Information Of-

markbd for a higher calling. In
1966, he was transferred to the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
With promotion goes responsi-

1971, by way of a UK Govern-
ment scholarship, Searwar
worked for his M. A. in Inter-

mother, Louisa, a housewife,
who loved reading. That desire
was so strong in young Lloyd
that he endured counting the
days to the birthday qualifying
him to join the library.
Lloyd Searwar was born in
Georgetown, British Guiana, on
July 28, 1925, the eldest of
seven issues of his parents,
Louisa and Humphrey. His fa-
ther operated a grocery business
in Vreed-en-Hoop on the West
Coast of Demerara even after
moving to live in Georgetown.

Lloyd Searwar had a sweet
tooth... for the kingdom
books. And what better sweet-
meat to sink one's teeth in
but beautiful high-quality
books! Young Lloyd used to
sweet talk his siblings out of
their pocket money in order
to buy books. He had a 'Je-
suitical passion for books'
which led to his many labels
including 'bibliophile',
'thinker', 'intellectual', 'edu-
cator' and 'writer'.
That love for books was

highly-regarded Modern High
School that produced notables
including Sir Harry

Early in life, young Searwar
displayed the propensity to be
a team player as well as a leader.
That showed up whether he
was playing 'bat-an-baal' with
Clive Lloyd and Lance Gibbs,
inviting friends to listen to op-
era music on the radio or debat-

lingle wrinner's musl0 vbloo to be shot in lainaica
By Neil Marks
TIMEKA Marshall is no stranger to Guyanese. Her winning Cellink jingle catapulted her to
instant fame in the innovative competition by the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company
(GT&T) to select a melody to pitch the sale of its cellular service.
However, Timeka's popular line from the jingle, "Cellink Plus, it's you we're going to trust, Cellink
Plus for all of us," is being replaced by "We don't even talk no more...maybe we should separate."
'When the single was first played on local radio, listeners were asked to call in and guess who the
artiste was. No one got it right, but their wrong suggestions like Alicia Keys and Whitney Houston,
meant Timeka, who is only 17, was on her way to even greater stardom.
Today, she is hosting the Miss Jamzone pageant at Splashmin's Fun Park where thousands converge
for the annual summer break programme put on by Hits and James entertainment.
Shortly, she will leave for Jamaica, where she will shoot and see directed a music video featuring the
local chart topper. Her hope ultimately is to become an international artiste.
In fact, her caeer goal is to become a professional singer and make it into the big league. It is an
ambition she credits to GT&rT.
Born at Wismar, Linden, Timeka is now settled at Bagotstown, East Bank Demerara. She has com-
pleted one year of studies inl coUnunlllljhicatio at Uth Unliversity of Guyana, but is switching to marketing
when the new semester starts.
She had the talent to sing, but it was restricted, for the greater part, to church or home. When she
decided to enter the GT&T Cellink competition, she didn't realise that it would convince her to make
smngmg a career.
After she won the coveted $100, 000 prize, her face was suddenly on billboards and she started
getting calls to model and sing. It was an unforgettable year. But Timeka decided she would take it to
another level.
From home, she sat watching a music video and got inspiration to write the song 'Maybe we should
"I thought that people could relate to the song, especially females. You might be in a typical rela-
tionship, but then problenits start to happen and you might be pushing for it to continue, but it doesn't
make sense. Sometimes it's best to just separate," Timeka says. She was not surprised at the response
to the song, but was yet still "shocked." GT&T came to her support again, sponsoring a number of the
tracks on CD for distribution to lucky fans.
Her friend and manager, Kerwin Bollers, of Hits and Jams, insists making the music video for the
song in Jamaica would be cost effective.
Guyana would have been perfect for the shoot, he says, but with the focus on getting a good prod-
uct at an economical cost, Jamaica was the ideal location.
TIimeka too is happy with the choice to produce in Jamaica.
"I can't settle for anything but the best," she says.

Reggae icon Bunny Wailer
says he will dabble in more
mainstream sounds and styles
on his next studio album, em-
bracing the popular music of
America and England.
'T'm taking time out in this
album to play other musical cul-
tures, like hip-hop, R&B, rap,
you name it," the 59-year-old
Wailer told, not-
ing that his self-described
"crossover" album will be titled
"Cross Culture."
"I've been acquainted
with America's music and
British music over the years,
and I've been absorbing, lis-
tening, learning and accept-
ing those things people play-
mng (that) music would accept
from being acquainted to
reggae," he continued. "Be-
cause as you know, there's a
lot of other artists who take
time out to play reggae mu-
si.mong the songs to be in-
cluded on the disc is a cover of

written heritage of this country. He wrote numerous papers that have become
reference documents in the field of Guyana's foreign policy and international
relations. He wrote for KYK-OVER-AL and KAlE, sometimes under the pseudonym,
'Critias', he wrote the Wednesday Editorial for the Stabroek News from 2001 on
regional and international affairs, and he published a booklet, THE THREAT OF
NON-ALIGNMENT, for the Conference of Foreign Ministers of the Non-Aligned
Movement hosted by Guyana in 1972. However, one of his more significant
contributions to Guyanese literature was the publication in 1988 of THEY CAME
IN SHIPS, an anthology of Indo-Guyanese prose and poetry. That monumental work
was compiled by Searwar, Laxhmie Kallicharran, Joel Benjamin and lan McDonald.
Lloyd Searwar was a consummate litterateur, conscious of the movement of world
literature, conscious of direction of West Indian literature especially through the
work of Henry Swanzy's 'Caribbean Voices' and cognisant of the explosion of
Guyanese literature through his support of KYK-OVER-AL and other literary
periodicals. His co-founding (with Arthur Hemstock and Bertie Martin) of the
Threatre Guild Playhouse in Kingston, Georgetown, was a landmark development
in drama.
At the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and as Ambassador, he connected with the top diplomats
at the time including Shridath Ramphal, Rudy Collins, Rudy Insanally, Rashleigh Jackson, James
Matheson, Barton Scotland, among others. And at whatever level of involvement, at the United
Nations General Assembly, at the Caribbean Community Secretariat (CARICOM), or at the Min-
istry of Foreign Affairs, Lloyd Searwar served and led with distinction.
As an educator, he was appointed a Visiting Fellow on a Ford F~oundation Fellowship at the
Institute of International Relations (HIR) of the University of the West Indies (UWI) at St. August-
ine, Trinidad and Tobago, Co-ordinator of the Post-Graduate Diploma in International Studies at
the University of Guyana (UG) and was elected first Director of the Foreign Service Institute of
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1998-2001).
When Searwar died in 2006, he was already a legend of his time, but he also left be-
hind an invaluable library of books and helpmate, Francina, who was with him, side by

CHICAGO (Reuters)People
who experience vision of
heart disease compared to
people who do not get the
debilitating headaches, a
study said on Tu~esday.
The "aura" that immediately
precedes a migraine affects
sufferers differently, with some
combination of dizziness,
flashes or spots of light, and
temporary loss of vision.
Among the 28 million
Americans, mostly women, who
suffer migraines, fewer than
one-third experience the aura
beforehand that was linked in
the study to the increased risk
of heart attack or stroke.
Though the risk of stroke or
heart problems was double
among migraine suffers with

aura, the problems can take a
long time to appear and there
are more significant risk factors
such as smoking and high
cholesterol, according to the
five-year study of 5,125 women
aged 45 orolder.
"Absolute numbers mean
only 18 additional cases per
10,000 women per year, so
this is a rather low risk of
experiencing cardiovascular
disease if you have migraine
with aura," said study author
Dr. Tobias Kurth of Brigham
and Women's Hospital in
Boston, who published his
findings in the Journal of the
American Medical
A common characteristic of
people with cardiovascular

disease and those who
experience an aura before a
migraine is an increased level of
homocysteine in the body, an
amino acid that assists in cell
metabolism but which can
damage the lining of blood
vessels and enhance blood
Among migraine sufferers,
homocysteine is only elevated
in those who experience an aura,
according to an accompanying
editorial by Richard Lipton and
Marcelo Bigal of the Albert
Einstein College of Medicine.
Further investigations
could look at whether
medications to treat
migraines might also help
reduce patients' heart rask,
they wrote.

PLASTIC waste is a major issue thlroughoult the world aund
especially here in Guyalna. Since the invention of` man-made
plastic in 1862, it lu~is contrib~uled to waste throughout the
worlld. The durable nauiue of plastic which is one of the quali-
ties that makes it so usefull is also its main problem as it takes
many thousands of years to degrade. This means that the
plastic we discard today will stay with us for generations to
come. The discarded waste clogs canals and drains and lit-
ters our streets and gardens. In Guyana, plastic waste makes
up about 10 per cent of the total waste disposed of in Guyana.
This waste, if not properly disposed of, can contribute to
flooding through blocking waterways, can contribute to dis-
eases, as it provides a place to live and breed for creatures
such as mosquitoes and rats, thus reducing Guyana's natu-
ral beauty. The key to the prevention of these problems can
be summarised in three words: reduce, reuse and recycle.

Reducing the amount of
plastic we consume is the easi-
est way to cult down1 on the en- b -"Y
vironmental damage resulting
from them. This can be as
simple as taking your own bag
to the supermarket or choosing (~I &Of tId C7
to buy drinks in glass bottles.
Sometimes this isn't possible, however, and we should look
to reuse the plastic we buy as much as possible. Plastic bags
can be used for the same job again and again; all it requires
is us remembering to take them with us to the shops or the
market. Plastic bottles can be reused for a large number of
things, such as the storing of food and drink and any num-
ber of other creative solutions. If we can't reuse an item, we
should then look to recycle it. This involves breaking down
the used material and remaking them into other materials. This
is possible for a large range of materials such as glass, paper
and plastic although the latter is much more difficult and more
expensive. This means that it is less common than recycling
of other products.

As plastic waste is such a big issue in Guyana; the fact
that reusing and recycling plastic are good options to reduce
this problem; and that these options are not widely used in
Guyana motivated the Government of Guyana in the form
of the Environmental Protection Agency UNICEF, UNDP,
PAHO, Banks DIH and Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) to
come together to promote a competition looking for solutions.
It ran in the first part of this year and was advertised across
the country in schools, in outlets of Banks DIH, DDL and
across the media. The judging of the competition has been
completed and a prize ceremony was held on Thursday July,
20 at the National Library in Georgetown. The winners were:

The first category asked children from eight to twelve to
write about a day in the life of a plastic bottle. There was a
huge response in this category from all over the country with
many, many creative, amusing and thought-provoking sto-
ries. This made judging extremely difficult. The winner, Jes-
sica Ramchartar, of Marian Academy wrote the story of a
bottle called Tommy, detailing his early life in the factory be-
fore being sent to a shop and being picked out by a little
girl, being drunk out of before being properly thrown away
and ending up being recycled. For this she won a Sony
Playstation 2.
The second category was for children and young adults
between the ages of thirteen and eighteen. Lonsdale Edghill of St.
Joesph High, Georgetown. was declared the winner in this category

Wastef~mmplastic and es-
pecially from plastic bottles is
a major problem in Guyana,
contributing to health and en-
vironmental problems. The
competition has helped to
raise awareness of the issue
and also to identify some pos-
sible solutions. It is hoped
that out of the competition so-
lutions will arise to help to
solve this problem. But there
are simple things every per-
son in Guyana can do; these
are to reduce, reuse and re-
cycle plastic bottle waste!

From page

after outlining a plan for the
establishment of a recycling
plant in collaboration with
retailers and the community.
For these ideas he won a
Personal Computer.
Karen Alleyne. the winner
in the third category for Third
Level Institution students, Indi-
vidual Entrepreneurs and Busi-
nesses, proposed a process of

tumling PET Bottle Wa~ste into
Conclret. Thlis idea could help
not only to recycle plastic waste
but also contribute to Guyan~a's
development. Also, in this cat-
egory, Kenry K Persaud outlined
the use of degradable plastics
and bio-plastics and also the
potential for community recy-
cling in Herstelling, while Sher
Johan outlined a proposal for

the establishment of a itecycling
factory in Guyauna as well as pn>
viding details of the recycling
tanlk that would be required for
such a plant to be operational,
The prize for the winner in
this category, Karen Alleyne, is
a trip to CEPIS in Pemu to help
develop her idea and make it
into reality. CEPIS is the Envi-
uonmental Sanitation Unit at the
Centre for Sanitary Engineering
and Environmental Science and
it works on improving environ-
mental management across the
region. The trip will help the
winner to develop her idea fur-
ther and provide valuable infor-
mation on environmental engi-
neering which can help Guyana
to address this serious problem.

THE main centres of origin for the forage legumes
found in Guyana are: South America, Southern
Mexico and Central America and the Indian Cen- -
The pasture legumes are generally classified as dicotyledonous
plants. They are broad leaf plants belonging to the family leguminoseae,
which is rather large and easily recognized family.
The pasture legumes have compound leaves that are either pin-
nate, trifoliate or digitate, and have leaf veins radiating finger-like from
a mid vein throughout the leaf and interconnected by a net work of
ln visThe rooting system of the forage legume plants is typically a ~9
branching tap root with numerous small swellings called nodules. Nod-
ules develop an the roots of the plants as a result of the symbiotic
association formed between plant and the soil bacteria called Rhizobium species which help to fix
nitrogen in the soil.
The pasture legumes have either herbaceous or woody stems. They also have a proliferation of
growth habits, which could be erect, prostrate, climbing, or twining; and can be used for grazing, browsing
or cutting. Other uses particularly for the types with woody stems are: shade trees, wind breakers and
live fences.
The flowers of legumes are conspicuous usually resembling a butterfly and pollination of the flow-
ers of the forage legume plants is by insects, wind or self. The fruit is the pod and the plant has a non
endosperm seed covered by a thick seed coat. Propagation of most forage legumes is by seed, however,
some species can be grown fromt gutting, rhizomes and stolons.
The pasture legumes have been classified as plants with special characteristics. Their deep tap root
systems allow them to grow better than grasses during the dry season. Legumes have better feed qual-
ity than grasses because they have higher levels of both protein and minerals. Legumes can be grown in
pure stands to provide feed reserves during the dry season or grown in association with grasses in a
sown pasture. Legumes do not require nitrogen fertilisers since they can enrich the soil with nitrogen,
which may cause grasses to be more productive.
However, legumes do require regular application of phosphorus and potassium. It is essential to
have good control over the access of animals in areas sown to legumes because uncontrolled grazing
will destroy the stand especially if the legume is annual.

Centrosema pubescens, 'Centro' as it is commonly called is a vigorous climbing legume that is
native to tropical South America. Centro grows well in wet areas and because of its deep roots, it is
fairly drought tolerant. In Guyana, particularly on the Coastal pastures, it can be found growing on the
dams and on fences, but is rarely seen in pastures forming part of the grass legume mix.
Centro is adaptable to a wide range of soils and two species C. acutifolium and C. brasilianum
liave both perfonned well in studies conducted inl the Intennediate Savannahs of Guyana. They have
been combined with Gamba and Signal grass to Irport animal gains of 550g/ day live weight.
Desmtodiumn Ov'alifoliu~m. is a perennial shnl that grows up to 60 cm. This legume is quite hardy
and can survive on both savannath and coastall cilay soils. The legume has good drought tolerance and it
can withstand somle a\moulnt of water logging. D' sodiumm is one of the legumes that can be planted in
at mnixed sward with UF717. Animal studies on pastrures with UF 717, showed that beef animals gained
450g/day live weight.

And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame, all
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.
Gas! Gas! Quick, boys! An ecstasy of
fumbling '
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time,
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And floundering like a man in fire or lime -
Dim through the misty panes and thick green
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.
In all my dreams before my helpless sight
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.
If in some smothering dreams, you too could
Behind the wagon that we flung him I,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, -
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorumz est
Pro patria mori.

couldn't see that much.
Then in the window almost right over his, I saw a
man and a woman squirting water out of their mouth
at each other. It probably was highballs, not water,
but I couldn't see what they had in their glasses.
Anyway, first he'd take a swallow and squirt it all over
her, then she did it to him they took turns, for God's
sake. You should've seen them. They were in
hysterics the whole time, like it was the funniest thing
that ever happened. I'm not kidding, that hotel was
lousy with perverts. I was probably the only normal
bastard in the whole place and that isil't saying much.
I d... near send a telegram to old Stradlater telling him

What to do
Suppose this is the way you choose to write your
story, by looking into windows or houses or
photographs or diaries. You then have~to choose the
language that suits the character you set up yourself
to be. Have a choice either to continue to write and
complete this story or to write one more fitting your
experience. Handle it however you think it fitting.
Remember this is an effort to assist you in writing
your short story, giving account of events, and
presenting description in a light-hearted fashion.
Whatever is your choice, think on the following
questions: What aspect would you develop further?
Why? What aspect would you develop in your own
choice? What aspects would you add?
What would you make the narrator do next? Would
you want to turn his attention to a sober side of the
hotel, wake him up from his spying or would you open
more windows to him? Think carefully about what you
would do and do it well.

InsprovemnZes of expression

Sentences, phrase's, clauses

IWhen you write any two sentences, or even think
of two things one ate another, there is tisually some
coimecuon, some relationship of thought between the
two. If-this relationship is a close one, it is usual for
it to~ be shown ~~~plerly, by.the running together of~ the
:go~~m~c 4 i~

1 sttast 14 ly th loset I want to keep i s
These two thoughts are closely rela ed.. The
second is, the reason for the purpose of the first and
they dome into ithe nind ~together.~ They are therefore
better ex dressed: ~' I must lock the closet cause I
want to keep in the crisp air.

I must lock the closet to keep in the crisp lair.
The whole aim of sentence construction is to show
clearly (to, the reader or listener) these relations of
thought. If you examine some examples from this point
of view, you will find it easier to make good sentences
from material presented to you by an examitter, and
you will understand more about punctuation. ~Let us
look now at one possible kind of relationship.
We will go on to the relationship -of equality next

The Passage

She made him no reply.

"I am not too proud to believe it, Louisa. How
could I be arrogant, and you before me! Can it be
so? Is it so, dear?"
He looked upon her, lying cast away there;
and without another word went out of the room.
He had not been long gone, when she heard a light
tread near the door, and knew that someone stood
beside her.
She did not raise her head. A dull anger that
she should be seen in her distress, and that the
involuntary look she had so resented should come to
this fulfillment, smouldered within her like an .
unwholesome fire. All closely imprisoned forces rend
and destroy. The air that would be healthful to the
earth, the water that would enrich it, the heat that
would ripen it, tear it when caged up. So in her bosom
even now; the strongest qualities she possessed, long
turned upon themselves, became a heap of obduracy,
that rose against a friend.
It was well that soft touch came upon her neck,
and that she supposed herself to have fallen asleep.
The sympathetic hand did not claim her resentment.
Let it lie there, let it lie.
It lay there, warming into life a crowd of gentler
thoughts; and she rested. As she softened with the
quiet, and the consciousness that she was being
watched, som~etears made their wiay into her eyes.
The face touched hers, and she knew that there were
tears upon it too, and she the cause of them.
As Louisa.feigned to raise hptself, and sat up,
Sissy retired, so that she stood placijdly near the bed-
"I hope I have not disturbed you. I have come
to ask if you would let me stay with you."
"Why should you stay with me? My sister will
miss you. You are everything to her."
"Am I?" returned Sissy, shaking her head. "I
would be something to you if I might."
"What?" said Louisa almost sternly.
"Whatever you waht most, ijf..l could be that.

ARIES It's all about strutting your (very hot) stuff right now your strength
is bigger than ever and growing! Make sure nobody ignores you today. Put
on your boldest outfit, laugh your loudest laugh and flash your brightest
smiee npo whatevereit tkes too stn nutyouomi tet nrwddaond laen h
you are and what you're all about. Keep them guessing, and you'II keep get-
ting noticed.
TAURUS You can lose your earplugs. Today will be a very quiet one when
little (if anything) will get your goat. Peace and tranquility may not dominate
evry s nle mnutn tf yo dayofbt yu' l ge a ti enughd90e t epaxo
evening. Set aside some time tonight to fawn over your favorite person -
whether that title belongs to a romantic partner, family member or yourself!
GEMINI There's simply nothing you can't do if you're armed with patience
and perseverance. Other folks have found success by pressing hard, but you
don't need to do that to get what you want right now. Instead, sit back and
wait for things to come to you. If they're taking too long, get out and ask
around. Find out what promises might speed things up. But avoid confronta-
tion or pressure tactics. After all, it's like the old saying goes: You can catch
more flies with honey than vinegar.
CANCER Everyone sees you as a person who's ready for anything, which is a
wonderful reputation to have. But deep down, do you fear that you may some-
day come across something that intimidates and paralyses you? Today you
may feel like you've met your match, but all you need to do is take a deep
breath, roll up your sleeves and dive right in! It's known as the 'fake it until
you make it' maneuver and it's a darn good way to introduce new things
into your life (and boost your confidence).
LEO One of your friends sees you as a trusted ally and today, you'll be
called on to step up and wamn them of a potential problem brewing. Don't
worry about meddling in the affairs of others. This realisation when it comes
- will make crystal clear that yunneed tokeet involved). You'llinfnow waw
yourself, though. Use your insight with moderation, or else you'll create more
drama than the situation warrants.
VIRGO Like a red flag stuck in the middle of a bright-white snow drift, the
problems you need to deal with will suddenly be incredibly obvious today.
They'II also be as easy to handle as removing that flag woukHte~-Get-id of
the obstacles lying in your path by utilising your excellent sense of humor.
Telling a well-phrased joke will be more effective (and diplomatic) than a blunt
declaration would ever be. You'II clear your way without ruffling any feathers.
LIBRA One of your biggest strengths is your ability to be impersonal and
see things from everyone else's point of view. This asset has made you an
invaluable ally, a dearly loved friend and, overall, a successful person. Today
this facet of your personality will be invaluable when you come to the aid of
a casual acquaintance or coworker. Share your concerns and criticisms (in your
trademark diplomatic way), and you'll be able to communicate something that
will really help another person grow.
SCORPIO It's flattering that people want to spend time with you, but when
you're honest with yourself, isn't it a tad bit annoying sometimes? After all,
everyone needs time to themselves, and it's not fun to feel smothered. Don't
feel guilty if you have to refuse an invitation simply because you'd prefer a
quiet night at home. Just because you don't have plans doesn't mean you
have to make some. Avoid people who are pushing to spend more time with
you than you want. They'II get the hint.
SAGITTARIUS There's a time to move forward, and a time to stay back and
Just watch the world go by today is a day when you should stay back. Sure,
Syou might want to get going on a fun, new project or play with a fun, new
toy, but you should think twice about it. Patience will come to you right when
you're at the end of your rope, so don't worry about getting caught off guard.
just wait for everyone else to take their turn, and then you'll know how to
take yours.
CAPRICORN There's a lot of pressure on you today, but the one who's push-
ing so hard is you! Lately, you've been way too difficult on yourself, and you
should stop and realise that you're doing your thing in your own way and
that's good enough. Part of this stress may be due to the changes that have
been happening in your life, so address that issue. If you just give yourself
time to get used to the newness around you, you'II start to relax again.
AQUARIUS Gietting near the finish line just doesn't count you need to put
all your effort into full completion. Finish everything you do today, from work-
place conversations to shopping trips. Don't leave things undone or unsaid,
and check everything off your list. This is a great lesson in not biting off more
than you can chew. You'll get a great sense of your capacity and be surprised
at how efficient you can be. This effectiveness will figure prominently into
your career future.
PISCES -- use lan yld~ ou ve beenl waclkingi onl take a giant leap forward icoday.
Whether you're building a new health regime, social event or romantic rela-
tionship, things are really starting to gel right now. The traction that's start-
Sing to build is going to launch you into a whole new way of looking at
someone you've known for a very long time. How you think and the posi-
tionS you take are starting to make more sense to a lot of people.

"This means that when scientists mine tiny samples of ancient
bones for DNA, much of the DNA obtained is actually from con-
taminants such as bacteria, fungi, and even scientists who have pre-
viously handled the bones," it added.
"Over the last 20 years, Paabo's research group has developed
methods for demonstrating the authenticity of ancient DNA results,
as well as technical solutions to the problems of working with short,
chemically-modified DNA fragments. Together with 454 Life Sci-
ences they will now combine these methods with a novel high-
'throughput DNA sequencing that is ideally suited to analyze an-
cient DNA."
454 Life Sciences Corporation, a majority-owned subsid-
iary of CuraGen Corporation, said it would use samples from
several Neanderthal skeletons, including a 45,000-year-old
Croatian bone. They will compare these sequences to those
already done on ~chimpanzees and humans by the publicly
Funded Human Genome Project.

Paabo was the first to find DNA in a Neanderthal leg bone, in
Neanderthals lived in Europe and the Near East until about
30,000 years ago, when Cro-Magnon people, the ancestors of mod-
ern humans, moved in.
Researchers have been trying to find out if Neanderthals are
also our ancestors, or if they were an evolutionary dead end. Paabo's
team was able to get a small amount of DNA from some bones that
suggested they did not contribute to the gene pool of living people.
But such old bones do not yield much DNA, the researchers

remaining is broken into short pieces and chemically modified dur-

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Experts who first managed to tease
some DNA out of the bones of a Neanderthal teamed up on
Thursday with a gene-sequencing company to try to get a com-
plete Neanderthal genetic code.
The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in
Leipzig, Germany, and 454 Life Sciences Corp in Branford, Con-
necticut, said they would use new technology that amplifies tiny
samples of the scarce DNA from bones.
"The advent of 454 Sequencing has enabled us to move for-
ward with a project that was previously thought to be impossible,"

Savage Garden

singer marries gay

partner in UK

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Darren Hayes, one-half of defunct Australian pop duo, Savage
Garden, said he married his boyfriend in a recent civil ceremony in London.
The announcement, made to fans Monday on Hayes' web site, offered a rare insight into his
private life, which he has long kept under wraps.
"As so many of you have given me your heart and soul over the past 10 years I thought it
only fitting that I too return the respect and inform you of the most significant event in my life,"'
Hayes wrote.
"On June 19th. 2006, I married my boyfriend of two years, Richard (Cullen). in a civil part-
nership ceremony in London. I can honestly say it was the happiest day of my life."
While Hayes said he finally felt securee and content" in his heart. he reaffirmed his belief that
"families and relationships are not commodities to be sold off for public consumption," and would
therefore remain "a public person with a private life."' He was briefly married in the late 1990s to a
longtime female friend.
On the professional side, the 34-year-old is about to spend six months in London recording his
third solo album for an unspecified new label. He announced earlier this month that he had split
with his home of 10 years, Columbia Records.
Singer/songwriter Hayes and producer/multi-instrumentalist Daniel Jones formed Say-
age Garden in 1994. Their two albums, 1997's self-titled debut and 1999's "LAffirmation"'
sold more than 23 million copies combined worldwide. The duo also topped the U.S. singles
charts with thle tunets I Knew I Loved You' and 'Truly, Madly, Deeply'. They split in 2001,
anld Hayes released hris solo debut, 'Spin', the following year.

Brad Pitt sat down for his first post-Shiloh interview Monday, using his
appearance on NBC's Today with Ann Curry to bring attention to his latest
-li . f~pet project, teaming with the nonprofit organisation Global Green to bring en-
~1 :''vironmentally-sound housing developments to the people of New Orleans.
And, more importantly, he talked about his burgeoning brood.
"Man, I got kids now," Pitt said. "And it really changes your perspective
on the world.
"It completely changes your perspective. And certainly takes the focus off
yourself, which I'm really grateful for.''
Pitt, who plays papa opposite Angelina Jolie to Shiloh, Zahara and Maddox,
/ says he has a "profound love" for his children and that his transition to family
man has, like Jolie, led him to become more involved in humanitarian work.
"You know, I've had my day. I've had my day. I made some films and I've
~ur~sreally had a very fortunate life. And it's time for me to share that a bit," he said.
~C -i~"I'm so tired of thinking about myself. I'm sick of myself."
~h The 42-year-old actor continues, "I can't do justice to it anymore than any
other parent can. You feel that you want to be there and you don't want to miss
out on anything. It's a true joy.
"You know, you can write a book, you can make a movie, you can draw, paint
-a painting, but having kids is really the most extraordinary thmng I've ever taken
on. And, man, if I can get a burp out of that [baby], that little thing, I'll feel such a
sense of accomplishment."
In addition to the unabashed parental boasting, Pitt also took the time to dis-
cuss his newest project the one not revolving around George Clooney, that is.
Pitt has teamed up with Global Green USA to bring "green" design design
. ! sing materials less harmful to the environment and that are cheaper to maintain -
-' to New Orleans. The buildings are expected to cut energy costs and lower somne
;health risks, like asthma.
To jumpstart the effort, the Ocean's Eleven thesp put up $100,000 of his own
money "so far" to sponsor an architectural competition to design a 12-unit apart-
ment complex to be the face of the movement.
j~Y '"My goal is: to see something tangible, to see something built that can become
an example, a template...a flagshlip for other people who are rebuilding."

Less litigious that way.
The five-time Grammay winner will make his Broadway de-
but as slickster lawyer Billy Flynn in the long-running musical
Chicago for a six-week run beginning August 22.
"rThis is a very exciting time in my career," the Confessions
singer said. "I have always admired Broadway actors for their
showmanship, dedication and focus that goes into performing
live on stage every night.
"Being on Broadway allows you to connect to audiences in
a whole new way that's different from music and movies. When
they asked me to play Billy Flynn in Chicago, I jumped at the
chance to be a piast of such an amazing production."
Barry and Fran Weissler, the show's producers, made the
casting announcement Friday.
"We could not be happier to have such a major star of the
music world bring his talent to our show," Barry Weissler said,
adding that he expected the R&tB superstar to be a "major force"
on the Great White

NEW YORK (Reuters)U.S. television tallk shlowv queenl O)pr;h
Winfrey on Monday moved to qluash rumours about hier
relationship withl her best friendly, saying she is not ga~y.
In1 the August issue of. O, Thle Oprah Maga~zine, the T.V starl
says some people mlisunderstand her close friendship of 30 years
with Gayle King, an editor on the magazine often seen with Winfrey
in public.
"I understand why people think we're gay," Winfrey tells the
magazine. "There isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of
bond between women. So I get why people have to label it how
can you be this close without it being sexual?"
In the article, Winfrey and King, who is divorced with two
children, discuss their 30-year friendship and "four-times-a-day
phone calls."
The friends say they would have no problem telling the public
if they were in a sexual relationship.
"~The truth is, if we were gay, we would tell you, because there's
nothing wrong with being gay," says King.
King says the rumours used to bother her as "it's hard enough
to get a date on Saturday night" but said she doesn't care anymore.
Winfrey, 52, who has never been married, agrees.
"'I've told nearly everything there is to tell. All my stuff is
out there. People think I'd be so ashamed of being gay that I
wouldn't admit it? Oh, please."

recorded in the Registration database
must correspond to that being entered
in the Contribution database.

The responsibility of the employer is to
ensure that at the point of registration the
employee's name and the other particulars
are correct. It is also the responsibility to
the employer to give to each of his
employee the National Insurance
Registration card which bears his number
and also to record that number in his
records as that belonging to the employee.

The employer is also responsible when
remitting contributions to National
Insurance Scheme to state the correct
names, National Insurance numbers etc.,
of the persons for whom the contributions
are being paid.

The National Insurance Scheme is
responsible for keeping an up-to-date and
correct record of all persons registered
under the system. It is also responsible for
maintaining a record of all payments made
for and on behalf of each employee.
The National Insurance Scheme is also
responsible for checking the records of the
employer to ensure that all his employees
are registered and that contributions are
paid by and on their behalf.
The National Insurance Scheme is further
responsible for paying an employee a
benefit if that person satisfies the
conditions to receive the benefit.
One of the conditions that are required for
the payment of a benefit, except those in
the industrial branch, is the payment of a
given number of contributions to the

It must be emphasized that although an
employer may have paid contributions for
on behalf of an employee, if that
employee's name and National Insurance
number do not match that in the
Registration database, the contributions

~i~i~~a;~ ~i~ori~eirel3; 231:'Zoo~j

would not be recorded as being paid for
that person. Only those contributions
which are paid using the name and number
in the Registration database will be
recorded for the person

In the early years of the Scheme, there
were some employers who paid I~ttle or
no attention into the registration of their
employees As a result there are
names and corresponding registration
numbers in the registration database
which belong to persons who have never
worked and there are persons who have
actually worked but who were not
registered. There are cases of persons
who have worked with names and
corresponding bio-particulars which
belong to their relatives. In other cases
persons were registered at different points
in time with the same eniployer using
different names:

The problems arise when a claim for a
benefit is made. It is then for the first time,
that National Insurance Scheme interfaces
with the employee and it s then that all the
inconsistencies are revealed some of
which date back the point of registration.

The Scheme is required to ensure thatthe
recipient of a benefit especially if that
benefit is a pension, is the correct person
and that helshe has satisfied all the
requirements for the award of that benefit.

It means that those inconsistencies when
identified must be corrected in order for the
records to reflect the true position with
regard to the claimant.

The scrutiny of the particulars of the
claimant is necessary if the Scheme is to
ensure that the recipient of the pension is
the right person and also the amount paid
is correct. The National Insurance
Registration database contains names of
persons that are similar in spelling and
great care has to be exercised in dealing
with those cases.

The payment af a pension to a person who
does not satisfy the requirements for the
receipt of that pension is defeating the
purpose for which the Scheme was
established i the first place and therefore
is a recipe f its own destruction. That
should be pre ented at all costs.

From~ the inception dif the National
Insurance Scheme the systems for the
registration of employees and for the
deduction and payment of their
contribution to the Scheme were
entrusted to the employer. This is clearly
stated ini the National insurance and
Social Security (Collectio~n of
Contributions) Regulations, Chapter
36:01 of the Laws of Guyana.

The employer is required by legislation to
supply. information on each of his
employee to the National Insurance
Schemqe. The National Insurance Scheme
is required to register each employee
using the information supplied by the
employer. Once the employee is
registered, a National Insurance
Registration card is prepared and a
National Insurance Identification number
is alidtted to the employee. The
Registration card which bears the name
and the registration number of the
employee is returned to the employer for
onward transmission to the employee. The
name and the Reg istration number allotted
to that person are recorded in the National
Insurance Registration database. That
database contains all the valid names and
corresponding numbers of National
Insurance registrants.
It must be noted that there is no interface
between the employee and the National
Insurance Scheme during that process.
The Scheme depends solely on the
employer to supply reliable information
relative to the employee for the completion
of that process.

The employer is required by the 15" day of
each month to submit to National
Insurance Scheme a schedule containing
the name, National Insurance Registration
number and other particulars of each
person for whom he is remitting
contributions for the previous month. The
name on the schedule is expected to be
the same used in the registration process
and the number the same as that issued by
National Insurance Scheme.

Those other particulars include the amount
of contributions paid on behalf of and
deducted from the employee's wages for
that period.

The information supplied by the employer
is entered into the National Insurance
Scheme Contribution database.
At the time when the contribution data are
