'Good team' challenged

to uphold high standards

By Neil Marks

\\ EARING in 19 ministers

day said he was confident
that he has chosen a "good

year development agenda, but
warned that he would require
high standards from them.
Mr. Jagdeo has appointed
ten new faces to the Cabinet
and among them are three
women. Minister of Amerindian
Affairs Ms. Carolyn Rodgrigues
and Prime Minister designate
Mr. Samuel Hinds, complete the
Cabinet. They were appointed
earlier in the week.
Mr. Jagdeo addressed the
ministers after the swearing-in

ceremony at State Hlouse, tell-
ing them they were embarking
on a difficult, but exciting jour-
ney, and urged that they remain
humble and maintain high stan-
dards in performing their duties.

Charges filed in

T&T courts over

Khan handling

AS THE Roger Khan saga
continues, charges of
kidnapping, false
imprisonment, and
misconduct in public office
have been filed separately in
a Trinidadian court against
two Trinidad government
officials and a top ranking
United States embassy agent
in the Caribbean twin-island
republic implicated in
handing the Guyanese
businessmen over into U.S.
Gary Tuggle, head of the
U.S.' Drug Enforcement Agency
(DEA) in Trinidad, David West,
the head of Extradition
Department in the Trinidad
Attorney General Chambers,
and Stephen Sookram, a
Trinidadian immigration officer
are likely to be served with
notice next week to answer the
charges in the Arima Magistrates
Court on December 8.
According to documents
seen by the Sunday Chronicle,
the charges were laid in the
Arima Magistrates Court on
Thursday. The complainant is
Sherman Ramoutar, an attorney
for Khan. Khan is in U.S.
Federal Prison awaiting a
further hearing on charges that
he conspired to import cocaine
into the United States.
In the first instance, all
three men are charged with
false imprisonment, for
having, on June- 29,
unlawfully and injuriously
imprisoning Khan and
detaining him against his
The second charge of
kidnapping, or "unlawfully and
by force and fraud" take and
carry Khan against his will, was
also filed against all three men.
In the third charge, only
West and Sookram are named
for misconduct in public office,
"by unlawfully and injuriously
imprisoning" Khan.
According to a local
attorney for Khan, after the
Guyanese businessman was
expelled from Suriname, he was

descending the stairs of the
Surinamese airways flight at
Piarco International Airport in
Trinidad when he was taken by
Sookram. The Immigration
officer then took him to Tuggle,
who saw him into an SUV and
then into a private jet to the
United States where he is now
in custody.
According to the lawyer,
charges were filed against West
also, because he was the
intellectual author of the events
that transpired in Trinidad.
Khan, 36, were arrested
in what Suriname police said
was a huge drug bust that
netted 213 kilos of cocaine on
June 15 in Paramaribo.
Khan was flown from the
country to the U.S. on June 29
after the authorities there said
they had no charges against him.

This was despite the fact
that Suriname Minister of
Justice, Mr. Chandrikapersad
Santokhi, had initially linked
Khan to plots to assassinate
key government and judicial
officials in that country and had
deemed him a threat to national
and international security.
Santokhi had also told
reporters that Khan, for
about two years before, was
also being investigated for
cocaine trafficking, firearm
possession and being part of
a criminal gang.
Less than 24 hours after he
was nabbed in Trinidad, Khan
was arraigned at the Brooklyn
Federal Court in New York
before Judge Roanne Mann on
a charge of "conspiring to
import cocaine".
Meanwhile, the fate of the

Party civil war after

bid to oust UK's Blair

By Peter Graff

LONDON (Reuters) British
Prime Minister Tony Blair
appealed for an end to
personal attacks within his
ruling Labour Party
yesterday days after being
forced against his will to
announce he will leave
office within a year.
Blair acknowledged the
week had been a disaster and
told followers to stop attacking
each other.
"There was something
irredeemably old-fashioned
about it. The attacks on the
leader, the leader responds, the
briefings, the counter briefings,"
Blair told a conference of
Progress, a group of pro-reform
Labour Party members.
"We're not going to win if
we have personal attacks by
anybody on anyone. Because it
turns off the public."
Polls show the sudden
battle over the succession has
hurt the prime minister.
But even more damage may
have been done to his presumed
successor, Finance Minister
Gordon Brown, who for the

during the week. but his failure
to endorse his boss was seen as
backing for the plotters.
In a devastating interview
in the London Evening

commentators said had

called Brown's behaviour
"stupid, stupid, stupid."
Clarke followed it up with

In his speech, Blair hinted

insisted: "There is no

Angry protesters sabotaged a

be a taste of resistance to his

Conservative Felipe

this week after a court threw
out fraud claims by his leftist
rival, was to place flowers in a
square in his home town of
Morelia in western Mexico as
a tribute to a celebrated inde-

of leftist Andres Manuel Lopez

prior to the act, forcing him to
put it off until later, said main

A spokesperson for
Calderon denied the protesters
had forced postponement of the
event, saying it had been put
back for logistic reasons.
Former Mexico City mayor
Lopez Obrador, who as candi-

poor out of misery, has shut
down much of the capital with
protest camps since losing the
July 2 vote and has promised to

Attendance has declined at

Brazil sees Amazon land

clearing easing this year

By Andrea Welsh
BRASILIA (Reuters) Huge
tracts of Brazil's Amazon
rainforest were cleared le-
gally and illegally in the past
year, but the rate of defores-
tation slowed, the country's
environment minister said
last Tuesday.
It was the second year in a
row that the pace of the destruc-
tion of the world's largest tropi-
cal rainforest declined. Booming
demand for farm exports caused
land-clearing to peak in 2004.
A slowdown in farming-
driven deforestation and a crack-
down on illegal logging may
have contributed to the reduc-
tion in the rate. The effort, how-

ever, was hampered in part by
corruption within the ranks of
the Brazilian environmental
agency IBAMA, where some
employees have been arrested in
illegal logging raids.
Preliminary figures show
that deforestation slowed 11
percent this year from last year,
when 7,255 square miles of
rainforest were cleared.
Officials estimate 6,450
square miles of forest an area
about the size of Hawaii or
somewhat smaller than Kuwait
- could have been lost legally or
illegally in the 2006 season,
which runs from August 2005
through July 2006.
"This shows it wasn't just
a cyclical reduction," Environ-

ment Minister Marina Silva told
a news conference.
The official deforestation
report, based on a more detailed
satellite reading, will be ready
by year's end.
Brazil's chaotic legal sys-
tem and its large informal
economy have not helped the
fight against deforestation. Ille-
gal loggers often use fake per-
mits and land titles to harvest
trees and then sell the cleared
land to farmers or ranchers.
Silva, whose parents were
rubber-tappers in the rainforest
state of Acre, pledged to fight
illegal logging when she became
environment minister in 2003.
But deforestation surged

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE September 10, 2006


WHILE GUYANESE of all walks of life reflect on the sur-
prises of inclusion and exclusion in President Bharrat
Jagdeo's new cabinet, it is also of interest to note how some
who are bent on sowing discord continue with their nega-
tive politicking when all should endeavour to take advan-
tage of the post-elections atmosphere in advancing
Guyana's national interest.
For instance, for one social interest group that claims le-
gitimacy to speak for Guyanese of African descent (quite a self-
serving profile), Afro-Guyanese "have nothing to celebrate from
a flawed democratic process"
What is more, this group, which had called for a boycott of
the just-concluded elections, and known to have links with ele-
ments holding an "armed resistance" perspective, seems quite
upset with the leader of the People's National Congress Re-
form-One Guyana, Robert Corbin, for talking the language
of inclusiveness and cooperation and disinterest in fostering in-
For revisiting an earlier call for "inclusive governance and
power-sharing", Corbin was equated by this group with the
"proverbial horse that left the barn with too little and too late..."
Quite strangely, a competitor of this newspaper had, a week
ago today, also editorially ridiculed the PNCR-1G leader for
"the abysmal showing of his party at the polls", and questioned
his legitimacy to now talk of "shared governance" without pay-
ing attention to the results of the elections.


Coincidentally, that editorial found time to give much en-
couragement to the new Alliance for Change (AFC) which mus-
tered just over eight per cent of the popular votes and is al-
ready revealing sharp post-elections cracks.
In contrast to the posturings of those seemingly upset over
the PPP/C's decisive electoral victory that resulted from a sus-
tained campaign to attract greater multi-ethnic support, there
have been the objective assessments of the outcome of the elec-
tions from the various observer missions, the private sector and
also trade unions.
A fractured GTUC, which FITUG continues to encour-
age to heal the wounds of division, may be in no mood as
yet to recognize the' verdict of the electorate. But this
country's oldest union, Guyana Labour Union (GLU), lost
no time in extending congratulations to President Jagdeo
and the PPP/C on their "resounding victory" at the Au-
gust 28 elections.
GLU General Secretary Carvil Duncan stated in a press re-
lease last week that he and his executive were "heartened and
encouraged" by assurances of President Jagdeo to "tackle the
task of nation-building with greater inclusiveness".
Quite rightly, the government would be expected to do just
that encourage maximum cooperation and practical forms of
greater inclusiveness. It is obligated to let every section of our
ethnically and culturally diverse nation know, with firmness,
that no one group or segment is on top.

Bound together by history, every section of our society, all
the stakeholders must strive to give substance to our national
motto of 'One People, One Nation, One Destiny'. The gov-
ernment has a very major role to play in further proving the
messengers of divisiveness and doom wrong as it strives to give
encouragement to the voices of reason and hope.
We take this opportunity to also express our own con-
gratulations for the work done by the Guyana Elections-
Commission (GECOM).

THERE HAVE been speculations for some time about snap gen-
eral elections -meaning before Cricket World Cup 2007 in
at least three Caribbean Community states Jamaica, St.
Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago. In all three, elections are not
constitutionally due before late next year.
Of the trio, what now seems certain is that there will be an
early poll in St. Lucia, possibly called for no later than mid No-
vember by Prime Minister Kenny Anthony whose incumbent
Labour Party is seeking a third consecutive term in government.
Therefore, while inclined to rule out a snap poll in either Ja-
maica or Trinidad and Tobago, I am counting one for St. Lucia which
has been under a Labour government since 1996.
Over three months ago, on May 21 to be precise, Prime Min-
ister Patrick Manning had hinted of a snap election when he said
that "the bell will ring" while addressing a General Council meeting
of his governing People's National Movement (PNM).
Well, that "bell" did not ring for even the local government elec-
tion that was due in July. Nor does it seem likely, to ring now that the
budgetary estimates for fiscal year 2006-2007 have been presented
in parliament.
Manning seems to be in no hurry to exploit the deteriorating
internal divisions of the opposition United National Congress
(UNC) with a snap national election.that his PNM is widely ex-
pected to. win. But he would also be 'mindful of widening serious
social problems with escalating murders 263 by Friday and climb-
ing robberies and other gun-related crimes.
In Jamaica,.the latest findings of the Stone Poll have put the prover-
bial cat among the pigeons, a scenario
in which both traditional contenders
ior state power,,incumbent People's
National Party (PNP) and opposition
Jamaica' Labour Party (JLP), in which
the spin doctors of both are compet-
ing to'interpret things in their favour.
Prime ,Minister Portia
Sf Simpson-Miller, judged by the
opinion poll to have a clear lead
ov\er'JLP leader'Bruce Golding to
be capable of doing a better job in
managing the affairs of Jamaica,
Smay well have complicated her
Sb. party's electoral fortunes by not
capitalizing on the momentum gen-
erated by her triumph as PNP
leader to call a snap election.
PRIME MINISTER PORTIA Golding, on the other hand, is
SIMPSON-MILLER doing his best to project optimism
that under his leadership of the JLP
- still in a trial phase, as it is also for Simpson-Miller the PNP
could be frustrated in its goal for an unprecedented fifth consecu-
tive term.

Well, a fourth consecutive term by the PNP was also felt by
the JLP to be unachievable under P.J. Patterson's final term. Inci-
dentally, the governing People's Progressive Party in Guyana last
month also achieved an unprecedented fourth consecutive term at
free and fair elections with 14 more parliamentary seats than its
major rival, People's National Congress.

Across in The Bahamas. Prime Minister Perry Christie last
month marked his 63rd birthday with an "election-readiness" alert
to his Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) which had defeated the Free-
dom National Party at the 2002 general election by capturing 29 of
the 40 parliamentary seats.
Christie said he was optimistic about winning a second term
for his PLP but steered clear of signalling a time-frame. A new poll
is due in 2007 but The Bahamas, unlike some other CARICOM
states, does not have to contend
with the hosting of a CWC tour-
nament and, therefore, avoiding the
Scheduling of an election in the first
half of next year.
In St. Lucia, Prime Minister
Anthony is among those leaders
who are faced with such a choice.
His decision is to get a snap poll
out of the way and well ahead of
the Christmas season, but an offi-
cial announcement is not likely be-
S fore completion of the new elec-
Storal register by early next month.
The 55-year-old Anthony,
PRIME MINISTER optimistic about his party securing a
KENNY ANTHONY third consecutive term, has gone on the
offensive against the leader of its tra-
ditional challenger for power, the United Workers Party (UWP) of the
now octogenarian former Prime Minister Sir John Compton.
Compton had dominated St. Lucia politics for some four de-
cades and has twice given up leadership of the UWP only to.twice
return to its helm. He is yet to clearly indicate if he would be con-
testing one of the 17 constituencies at the forthcoming poll, even
as he continues to introduce UWP candidates.

As the pre-election temperature rises, the UWP has been pushed
on the defensive on two fronts by the ruling SLP, both with.for-
eign policy implications relations with Taiwan and a hostile stance
towards Cuba.
First, the SLP has urged the UWP to "own up" to having re-
ceived financial support from Taiwan, generally regarded as a ren-
egade province of the People's Republic of China.
Anthony's SLP's had lost little time, following its 1997. elec-
tion victory, in cutting ties with Taiwan and establishing diplomatic
relations with the government in Beijing.
Last week, the SLP claimed that it was in possession of infor-
mation that Taiwan was making use of its diplomatic mission in St.
Kitts and Nevis to funnel support to the UWP for the coming clec-
tion with the understanding that once returnedI to power his partly
would resume ties.
The SLP said "this is a serious matter" since when St. Lucia
had diplomatic relations with Taiwan "there was little evidence of
benefits to St. L.ucia". In contrast, the Anthony administration enu-
merated various high profile projects in, among others, the fields of
sports, culture and health Ifrom the People's Republic ol China in
its nine years of diplomatic ties with St. Lucia.
Compton quickly shot back by saying lie had no intention of
"bowing i( the wishes ofl the ruling party". Without either specifi-
cally denying 'r conlf"ming receiving any assistance from Taiwan,

the UWP leader said the SLP did not "control our foreign
policy...what it is trying to do is to get money from mainland China
by suggesting we are linked to Taiwan..."

But he was not as forthcoming in response to another chal-
lenge from the governing SLP that accused him of adopting an un-
gracious stance against Cuba with which St Lucia has developed
very beneficial relations over the years.
The accusation followed a threat, as reported, by Compton at

a recent public meeting that once returned to government the UWP
would bring back home an estimated 300 St. Lucians studying nurs-
ing in Cuba. The warning came against reported allegations of dis-
satisfaction by some students with living conditions in Cuba.
For the SLP, Compton is simply engaging in "retrograde cold
war politics" in the UWP's association with Taiwan and the
"shameful ingratitude" being shown towards Cuba.
When contacted, Sir John promised to make available to mela
statement in response to the "re-
.call" warning on St. Lucian nurs-
ing students in Cuba. But it was
not received up to the time of writ-
in g.
Compton could persist in
crossing political swords with
Anthony's SLP on either UWP's
relations with Taiwan or his
party's lingering negative attitude
towards Cuba.
However by Friday (Septem-
ber 8) the 82-year-old former
Prime Minister, who harbours
hopes, against the odds, of a re-
markable bounce-back to power,
Pwas facing an entirely new and sig-
PRIME MINISTER nificant development:
PATRICK MANNING IlThe academic/politician he had
once anointed his successor as
UWP leader and Prime Minister, D)r. Vaughan Lewis. former Direc-
tor General of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS),
has decided to team up with Anthony's SLP for the Snap election.
To what extent this proves advantageous to the SLP's quest
for a third term. should arrangements for" Lewis' involvement
with the SLP be completed, as expected, will unfold once the
campaign intensifies. Particularly with the former UWP leader
as candidate, again, for the (aslrie.s central l constituency he
had twice lost muder ihe umbrella .of what s still largely per-
ceived as 'Coiupton's par ;\'. In politics, all things are possible!

IF YOU think I am getting into the heated debate that stirred
during the campaign for the August 28 elections about who is
and who is not 'The Great Pretender', think again.
I know my corner and I keep in my corer and I, being not a
media referee, or even pretending to be one, steer clear of political
dogfights and nobody can accuse me of false pretence.
I watched and laughed at the 'The Great Pretender' exchanges
in the TV ads during the elections campaign, but that's it.
Like I said last week, when you see me with my tie loose and
awry (when I choose to wear one), know that I am feeling irie (for
those of you who do not know that simply means I am feeling
And those of you who know me, know that I am an irie man
most of the time, except for when people pi- me off, and then 1
am not so irie.
I'll wear my tie loose when I feel like wearing one and even
when I am not wearing one, you can tell I am still irie it shines
through and there's no pretending about that.
You are either irie or you are not irie you can't fake it. like
the Great Pretenders.
Yesterday, I was at State House for the swearing in of the new
Cabinet, and unlike the inauguration two Saturdays ago of Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo, I was without a jacket and tie. No jacket, no
tie hanging loose, but I was still irie, through tnd through.
A man feeling irie doesn't have to make believe that he is irie
and I wasn't the only one feeling really irie at State House yester-
You could sense pure irie all around in the new and the old
Cabinet Ministers, and even those who are no longer in the Cabi-
net looked like they were irie. (You want to accuse them of false
pretence? Feel free. Not me.)
And here's hoping the irie spirit trails them well, especially
the new, young members getting into the Cabinet.
It's a tough road ahead and it's not going to be easy, but if
they, every now and then when the going gets tough, pause and let
the tie hang loose, or let the hair down, the irie spirit would grab
hold and take control and they would just have to let the good times
roll and not be among the Great Pretenders.
They would then have no cause to be like the sourpusses

among us and there are many of those around, and it would take
a lot of the irie feeling to keep them at bay.
Like those who, in a weird, twisted and blinkered kind of think-
ing, believe that my excursions into the Rasta dialogue make me a
traitor of some kind.
I love Bob Marley and his lyrics speak deeply to me and I, a
free and usually irie man, see nothing wrong in borrowing the Rasta
dialect to get my point over.
There's a lot of music and feeling in Rasta language, as Brother
Bob Marley so powerfully demonstrated to the world and emanci-
pated a lot of people in the process, and writers have a licence to
use the medium they think best to make their points.
And for me, no Great Pretender at being Rasta or other-
wise, Rasta talk is good talk and I, an irie man, like to walk
the talk.
And 1, who am usually irie, can't stand Great Pretenders. They
simply pi me off and I can't stand their jerking off in public.
Like those who make believe that they are media people of
repute when they are simply Great Pretenders, gross trespassers
in a noble profession and arrogating unto themselves the power to
make pronouncements in the name of the professionals.
Journalists and other media people do not pretend to be
lawyers, university lecturers, political scientists, engineers,
technicians, nuclear scientists or whatever. In the course of
their work, they may turn to or seek views from others in other
professions, but they do not normally trespass and poach in
other people's fields.
Yet, some people who fancy themselves journalists and pre-
tend to be members of the noble breed, regard the media as their
'eye pass' and having trespassed, become so delusional that they
profess to be experts and proceed to pass judgment on those who
struggle to hold the torch high.
And they so often make asses of themselves when they pon-
tificate without any sound basis, daring to walk ground made hal-
low by those who have toiled in the trenches and earned their spurs
by fighting the good fight; not by any sleight of hand as this cur-
rent band of Great Pretenders that has dirtied the local media land-
Instead of making half-assed comments and trying to pass

judgement on other people, they should stick their nose where the
sun doesn't shine on their body, and keep them there. In that way,
they wouldn't foul the air with the stench they sometimes deign to
issue, pretending they are journalists.
See why I also wear my tie loose, when I choose to wear one?
It's because of the Great Pretenders around who pi me off and
sometimes get me hot around the neck.
You know them and I know them and like the Rasta would
say Fire pon them!
But the usually irie man that I am, I'll burn the topic for now,
continue to wear my tie loose, when I feel like wearing a tie, and
try to spread the irie feeling.
And that's no false pretence.

Manning's gripe is that the
U.S. has basically ignored him
on calls to help finance assets
that would allow Trinidad and

dealers head-on, since the U.S.

tax officials to cast their tax . .. .

On 4th September, the Eu-

to have said that it wants to ex-

Bahrain, Dubai, Canada and the

tries either to provide informa-
tion on interest paid into the bank accounts of EU citizens to the
tax collectors in their country of origin, or to apply a withholding
tax on the interest payments that is then remitted to the revenue
departments of the relevant EU countries.
The inclusion of the Bahamas on the EU list is ominous.
For when the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and De-
velopment (OECD) launched its so-called "harmful tax competi-
tion initiative" in 2000, it identified the smallest and weakest na-
tions in the world to name and shame; many of them were in the
There followed an unrelenting three-year campaign against these



countries, describing them as "non-cooperative countries and terri-
tories" (NCCTs) and demanding that their Head of Government sign
a letter committing to the removal of "harmful tax practices" which
included information exchange. Almost every Head of Government
of a small country signed a letter which was promptly displayed
trophy-like on the OECD website.
Fortunately, the Republican administration, which came to
power in the United States under President George W Bush, dis-
agreed with the high-tax stance implicit in the OECD initiative, and
this helped to weaken the OECD resolve.
In the end, the OECD juggernaut was brought to halt by the
resistance of some of its other members Switzerland, Luxembourg
and Liechtenstein in particular who refused to go along with the
demands of their more strident sister states in the OECD for fear
of the harmful effect on their vital financial services sector.
The so-called NCTTs demanded an equal playing field
with OECD members, particularly Switzerland. Reluctantly,
in the face of division within their own camp and a hostile
group of small countries, the OECD agreed.
But the naming and shaming campaign did great harm to sev-
eral Caribbean countries which lost both earnings and employment
as many financial institutions closed their doors. They suffered
the further cost of establishing expensive regulatory and enforce-
ment machinery.
It was EU members of the OECD especially France and Ger-
many that had originally initiated the "harmful tax competition"
project in the OECD. It was not surprising, therefore, that the EU
introduced the EUSD in July 2005 within their member states and
dependent, territories. They also entered into separate but more
limited arrangements with Switzerland and Liechtenstein to apply
the savings directive.
After the first nine months of the operation, EU tax officials


were clearly dissatisfied with their haul from the traditional tax ha-
vens in the EU and dependent territories in the Caribbean.such as
Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and the Cayman Islands.
Figures bandied about are a high of US$100 million from Switzer-
land through US$4 million from Guernsey to less than fifty thou-
sand United States dollars from the BVI.
The theory now seems to be that the monies have left Eu-
rope and its dependencies, where the EUSD has been enforced,
and wandered off to Hong Kong and Singapore in particular.
The Bahamas is named because, apart from Cayman and the
BVI, which are already captured in the EUSD, it has the most fi-
nancial institutions in the region.
Pressure will, undoubtedly, be put on the Bahamas, and if the
authorities in Nassau succumb, whatever arrangements are agreed
will, undoubtedly, be presented to Caribbean countries to do like-
But, the Bahamas authorities should not talk to the EU alone.
Indeed, it is not too early for the Bahamas to reach out to Hong
Kong and Singapore to establish an alliance and to agree how to

In any event, Caribbean countries should be alert to the

'Roots Tourism'

By Jasmin Garraway

AS DESTINATIONS reach a more mature stage in the
tourism life cycle, more sophisticated niche tourism
products are developed by planners aiming to retain market
Genealogy Tourism, also known as "ancestry" and "roots"
tourism is one such product, which falls under the umbrella of
culture and heritage tourism, and is travel aimed at visiting
birthplaces of one's ancestors and getting acquainted with distant
relatives. It is generally considered as a viable option for tourism
product diversification.
In some countries, such as in the UK and Europe, genealogy
has developed into a major hobby. The great surge in the U.S.
started in the 1930s, increased after World War II and intensified
significantly after the publication of "Roots" by Alex Haley in
The southern states of the United States continue to attract
a significant number of domestic tourists tracing family ties.
Many specialty, small businesses and research consultancies
have developed as a consequence of the demand for genealogy
Research in the U.S. has found that Genealogy holidays

are taken by enthusiasts aged 55-75 and over with
comparatively high disposable incomes. This group travels as
couples or with friends in small groups of 10 or more and spends
an average of 9 days. They are likely to enjoy non-strenuous
adventure activities, visiting fairs, festivals, art galleries and
cultural events.
African governments seized the opportunity created by
the influx of visitors following the airing of the series
"Roots" in North America to attract diasporic Africans. The
Ministry of Tourism in Ghana, for example, identified
African Americans as a primary target market. Though it
wasn't possible to trace their genealogical links to a
particular village or nation, many roots tourists did
establish such connection through research and phenolypic
similarities with the assistance of locals.
Ireland is recognized as one of the world's best practices
in terms of developing Genealogy Tourism. Irish Genealogy
Limited (IGL) is the umbrella body for genealogy in Ireland and
collaborates with numerous organizations in the genealogy sector
and the Irish Tourism Board to develop the capacity to boost
roots tourism in Northern Ireland. This organisation manages
the Irish Genealogical project which, to date, has computerised
civil records of births, marriages and deaths which are made
, , ,'*' "i r,,, i \":' 'I ,.,,V, *'. : y- "

available through a network of 34 designated country based
genealogy centres. To date 11 million family history records
have been omnputerised.
The Genealogy tourism model is a hidden gem yet to be
discovered by the vast majority of countries. Too often the
response to declining tourism by destinations experiencing
tourism stress is to increase efforts and expenditure on
marketing. Usually. this is marginally successful. This trend
can be reversed over time by embracing the innovation process
and developing new tourism products such as Genealogy
tourism, but innovation can only be effective if the product is
carefully researched, planned and designed.
Developing new genealogy/roots tourism products is
not without challem es. A number of issues must be
addressed before the full potential of roots tourism can be
exploited. Both National Tourism Organisations and the
private tourism sector must recognize the potential of the
roots tourism market. A suite of micro-products will need
to be developed, including a fully computerised
genealogical service and a network of supporting
institutions to develop and sustain the product.
One ACS member state demonstrates significant potential
for developing genealogy tourism. Between 1850 and 1904.
Panama experienced 3 migratory waves from the Caribbean
for railway and Canal works. Workers came from Jamaica.
Barbados, Martinique, Trinidad and St. Lucia.
The Afro-Caribbean community in Panama strives to
maintain its Caribbean identity and has a wealth of ilnfbrnation
and records to support genealogy tourism initiatives.

Poland: The

"1 am afraid that with
Jaroslaw Kaczynski as prime
minister, Poland will become
more extreme, more anti-Eu-
ropean and a more xenopho-
bic country," warned
Bronislaw Komorowski, a
member of the opposition
Platform party, when the
second Kaczynski twin was
made prime minister by his
brother, President Lech
Kaczinski, in July. He could
have added that Poland is be-
coming more anti-Semitic, more
homophobic, and much more
vengeful towards former Com-
munists and collaborators.
The Kaczynski twins,
chubby 57-year-olds whose
baby faces remind everyone that
they first shot to fame as child
actors in the 1960s, are identi-
cal in both their appearance and
their politics. They are nation-
alist. Catholic, and conservative
(as mayor of Warsaw, Lech

banned gay parades and called
the organizers "perverts"),
which is why they appeal to the
left-behinds of Polish society,
the rural, the poor and the un-
educated, who provided most of
the votes for their Law and
Justice Party last year.
Then they promised that
they would never occupy both
of the great offices of state, and
Jaroslaw remained as party
leader while Lech took the presi-
dency. But the man he ap-
pointed as prime minister in-
stead, Kazimierz
Marcinkiewicz, showed an un-
expected streak of indepen-
dence, so two months ago, Lech
fired him and appointed
Jaroslaw in his place.
Since then, it has gone from
bad to worse: quarrels with
Germany, with Russia, with the
European Union that Poland
joined only two years ago and
above all, a determined drive to
punish everybody who served

or helped the Communist re-
gime that collapsed 27 years
The campaign's most
prominent victim is former
president Wojciech
Jaruzelski, who declared
martial law in 1981 and jailed
about ten thousand Solidarity
members. Jaruzelski has always
claimed that he did it only to
forestall a Soviet invasion that
would have ended in a national
disaster, for the Poles would
have fought back, the country
would have been devastated, and
all possibility of reform would
have been lost for decades.
Most of Soldarity's
former leaders now accept
Jaruzelski's justification for
his decision, though they
spent years in jail because of
it. Former president Lech
Walesa, Solidarity's founder,
was publicly reconciled with
Jaruzelski last year in a joint
television appearance. But


Jaruzelski is now charged
with being the head of an
organisedd criminal group
which aimed to perpetrate
crimes that consisted of the
deprivation of freedom by in-
ternment," and at the age of
82 he faces a possible eleven
years in jail. Hundreds of
thousands of other Poles also
face reprisals under the new
law introduced by the
Under the old rules, mem-
bers of parliament, judges, and

Similar things happened in
other countries of the former

munist regimes were swept
away by the revolutions of

most of the targets of this re-

vindictive and pointlessly de-
It is the same resentful
obsession with past wrongs
that caused President

Kaczynski to cancel a visit to
Germany recently after a
small-circulation German
newspaper satirised him as a
"potato-head." It gives rise to
demands that Poland erect a
memorial to the 1940 massa-
cre at Katyn, in which Soviet
troops murdered at least
15,000 Polish reserve officers,
directly across the street from
the Russian embassy. And it
turns a blind eye to anti-
Semitism, gay-bashing and
other relics from the darker
parts of Poland's past.
Poland is highly nationalist
because it has had a dreadful
history of partition, conquest
and oppression at the hands of
its far bigger neighbours,
Germany and Russia. It is
the most Catholic country in
Europe because its religion
was a rallying point during
the long decade. of foreign
occupation. It is socially
conservative because almost
half its people are still
essentially rural. None of
that is bad in itself, but the
Kaczynskis know how to
push all of Poland's buttons,
and they do it shamelessly
and relentlessly.
Two million young
Poles over five per cent of
the population have left
the country for greener
pastures in western Europe
since EU membership made
it easy for them to
move. The 17 per cent un-
employment rate, the high-
est in the EU, gave them a
big incentive to go, but in
many cases that wasn't all
that pushed them out.
There is another Poland,
but quite a lot of it is cur-
rently living abroad.

(By P.S. Thakur PhD

BIOLOGY is destiny. We are
born male or female. It is a
biological determinant, a fact
that we cannot escape. The
male provides the sperm, the
female the egg and she is to
carry the embryo and fetus to
full term. The twenty-third or
sex chromosome determines
the gender of the child, xx for
the female and xy for the
male. It is this x that gives
the girl her genitals, breast,
female hormones and ac-
counts for her moods, her
anxieties. The y gives the
male his genitals, his beard
on his face, his hormones -
the androgens and the
progesterone. The progester-
one prepares the female for
child bearing, the testoster-
one does the same for the
male. It is the y chromosome
that provides the males with
stronger muscle fibres and
hence his greater strength
and aggressive nature. These
latter characteristics have
been shaped by the environ-
ment that men do not cry;
"Boys will be boys". "You are
a man now". The tasks pro-
vided for the girls are in
keeping with their "weaker
nature" while the tasks of
boys are in keeping with their
strength. In a classroom of
the fifties and sixties, the
girls swept the floor while the
boys moved the benches and
did the more strenuous work
not much different now.

Gender comes from Sanskrit
"janas" which means "to pro-

duce" or "root". Later, it was
used in "generare", "to beget",
"to produce an offspring". It
was introduced into the English
language in the 14th Century
and used by poet Chaucer and
later by Shakespeare. It was
used also to mean "to produce
by natural process; to give rise;
"to bring about". "Gen" as a
suffix as "homogeneous" was
used in Greek "to become".
There are various styles of
learning that can account for
gender differences in learning.
One such difference is the field-
style of learning. The field-de-
pendent or holistic approach is
where women seem to have an
advantage over men, where one
sees their proverbial forest
rather than trees. Males are
more field-independent and who
tend to be more analytical in
their thinking. These two types
of thinking styles are fairly
stable throughout early years.
Field-independent persons
tend to follow more active
lifestyles; to be involved rather
than be mere spectators. A field-
independent tends to get along
more with others because social
relationships are important;
they are sensitive to social val-
Socialisation is the shaping
process where values, attitude
and behavioral norms of a so-
ciety are inculcated. As such,
these are learned behaviours
about sexual orientation from
numerous sources such as ob-
servations, rewards and punish-
ment, coercion, persuasion, etc.
This is one aspect of an indi-
vidual identity. While biology
plays an important role in de-
termining gender and gender

behaviour in the higher pri-
mates such as man, learned
behaviour has a great influence
on the gender bias behaviour.
According to Albert Bandura,
the child observes the behaviour
of parents and so learns his own
gender role by imitation.
Sigmund Freud explains the
process with cross gender iden-
tification, (the Oedipus Com-
plex), the boy identifying with
the mother and the girl with the
father, (the Electra Complex).
Erik Erikson, in the tradition of
Psychoanalysis, speaks of so-
matic design and bestowing on

the female an "inner space" in-
tended to bear offspring, a role
denied to the male. As such, a
woman is predisposed to worth
vital inner possibilities. The
womb then becomes "a meta-
phor for the special potential for
psychological creativity and
richness". Karen Homey sug-
gests that the male is obliged to
continue to prove his manhood
to the woman. The female, on
the other hand, performs her
role, sexual or otherwise, with-

out doing but merely being. Re-
ligions and religious teachings
have played and continue to
play a determining role in social
norms and mores. As a result,
gender bias is pervasive and evi-
dent in many aspects of our
lives. This is especially true as
schools in Guyana for many
years were administered and
operated by Christian churches.
To become a school teacher one
had to become a Christian.

Guyana, with a population
of largely Afro-Guyanese and
Indo-Guyanese, the traditional
family style is quite evident.
The father of the household is
head even of married children.
Young daughters-in-law are un-
der the absolute control of the
mother-in-law who is again con-
trolled by the male head. If the
father dies, the oldest male be-
comes the head. This was so
even as the caste system broke
down. The family preferred a
first child to be a male to carry
on the family and to protect his
litter sister. Indo-Guyanese
families are very much patrilin-
"Sons also strengthen the
family by themselves becom-
ing sources of labour and
economic well being by their
own pressure and by provid-
ing additional labour
through marriage".
The significance of these
historical changes was the break-
ing down of gender and class
barriers even in traditional Indo-
Guyanese families. This sugges-
tion was to encourage and sus-
tain the changes which were
rapidly setting the stage for to-

tal changes in homes and
In all families Indo-
Guyanese, Afro-Guyanese or
any other long before the birth
of a child, there is a gender pref-
erence. Many prefer their first-
born to be a boy and the sec-
ond to be a girl. Depending on
the preference, the father goes
out and gets a cricket bat and all;
a mother goes to get a pink
dress or blanket. Even in in-
fancy, a girl wears earrings.
Chevannes' study of
"Ganitree", in Jamaica talks of
sex roles and gender ideals as
one acculturated quite early in
that community. Here, the gen-
der roles are distinct. Before the
age of four, there is little differ-
ence in playing with children.
After this age, mothers place a
great deal of limitations on the
whereabouts of girls. With the
onset of puberty, boys learn
how to suppress pain, they en-
gage in more men's work the
economic production cultiva-
tion tasks. Boys are frequently
taken out of school to help take
products to the market and af-
terwards end up playing the
rest of the day. One mother said
a boy without uniform did not
go to school on Monday and
there was no need to send him
to school for the rest of the
week. Boys then are quite early
introduced into the world of
work and school took a second-
ary position. On the wayside,
shops that often serve alcohol
do not allow children in, but
boys lurk in the neighbourhood
where the men drink, smoke
cigarette or ganja. There are no
girls around. The boys then are
exposed informally to a wide
variety of ideas, opinions and
practices. Even their vocabulary
takes on frequently bad words
that involve sex organs, sexual
activities, the anal or excretory
organs. While teachers become
concerned about these bad
words, they blame the parents.
They use it frequently, but will
apologise if reprimanded by
adults or teachers.

The studies in British school
and reported in the EOC/
OFSTED (1996) made three

1. More girls are now
taking subjects which boys once
did. However, boys are not tak-
ing what girls traditionally took.
One can gather from that obser-
vation that there is an inflexibil-
ity of young men in dealing
with a changing world.
2. The girls tend to be
better than boys in thinking be-
fore they begin to work on a
project. Boys fail to think
through the problem and are
more impulsive without fore-
thought to process or implica-
3. Girls are more likely
to bring along the needed equip-
ment to get the work done.
They are more careful in plan-
ning and executing of tasks.

It is no surprise that men are
more likely to think and perform
in more male-oriented jobs.
Masculinity has to be con-
firmed by sticking more closely
to a particular model of what
men like to do. Because these
may not be inherited traits, it
may have been the influence of
peer culture.
Teachers and members of
society are from early years im-
bued with the gender bias
behaviour. From childhood, they
are rewarded to play the proper
role and are punished for acting
out of role. As professionals,
they teach and act in accordance
with the established norm. Fe-
male teachers are more likely to
help girls and allow boys more
to work on their own. Teachers
come into a classroom with a
gender-bias. Text books and cur-
riculum very much support a
gender-biased education. Cook-
ing is for girls, while carpentry
is for boys. In textbooks, a male
is seen cutting wood or is a car-

Essequibo Coast gets its own Oasis

Story and photographs by
Wendella Davidson

RESIDENTS of Queenstown
Village, Essequibo Coast in
Region Two (Pomeroon/
Supenaam) are showering
praises on a daughter of the
soil for seeking to put the
village in the limelight with
the construction of a $130M
The building to be named
'The Urbayne Oasis', coined
from the family name Payne -
which now dots the skyline, is
the brainchild of Anita Payne-
Greenidge, known to her villag-
ers as 'Elroy' whose initial fo-
cus was to have a central place
where important functions in
the village can be held.
The idea was born in 2002
during a family reunion when it
was realized that the

some $4M was already infused.
"It was a sad situation, I
was reduced to tears numerous
times and I have asked the ques-
tion on countless occasions:
'Why"', she said.
She said even at this stage
of the project, when things
seems to be sailing smoothing.
there's bound to be some kind
of disappointment, she said
with a bit of sadness in her voice.
"But you know, I am a
fighter and as a little girl grow-
ing in this village (Queenstown)
there was no gold spoon in the
mouth...I'm a family-oriented
person and I made an oath with
the project and which I am de-
termined to see to its comple-
tion, come hell or high water.
God is going to see me through."
Payne-Greenidge told the Sun-
day Chronicle recently during
the dedication of the building.

Anita Payne-Greenidge addressing the gathering at the

Queenstown Primary School
could not have accommodated
the family. This, however, soon
lent its way to bigger thinking
and a decision by Payne-
Greenidge to expand to cater for
a clientele wanting that unique
place to stay and still be at a
home away from home.
The end result is a three-flat
building, complete with 21 self-
contained and air-conditioned
double rooms, along with a
modern and spacious conference
room with a seating capacity for
200, roof garden, beauty salon,
courtyard with comfortable ac-
commodation for about 300,
and gift shop.
For Payne-Greenidge. a
woman of perfection and who
resided overseas for some 25
years, she is working assidu-
ously for the hotel to be classi-
fied as the "the best on the
Essequibo Coast" and will not
feel satisfied until she has
achieved that signature.
"I have had trying, real try-
ing moments, but today I've
begun to see the silver lining
that for some three years hung
behind hovering dark clouds,"
she said.
But she forthrightly admit-
ted, had it not been for her
groundings in the Guyana De-
fence Force (GDF) and the dis-
cipline of that era, coupled with
years of experience as a realtor
in the 'Big Apple', the project
would have been a 'no show'.
One cannot help but salute
Payne-Greenidge's grit and de-
termination, on hearing of the
many trials and tribulations
which confronted her, chief
among them being the partial
collapse of the building when

Retracing the roots, the Sun-
day Chronicle learnt that since
the age of about 14, while grow-
ing-up in the village where farm-
ing and craft-making was popu-
lar, Payne-Greenidge always
displayed an entrepreneurial
Then, she would join her
cousin Wendell and others on
regular jaunts into the backlands
known in the rural areas as the
'backdam' to pick mangoes. It
was not an unusual sight to see
Wendell in the tree picking the
mangoes and throwing for her to
catch and vice versa.

cousin would beam a smile as
she showed off the pennies she
had collected from her day's
But for this young, unas-
suming country girl of humble
upbringing and whose limit was
the sky, selling mangoes was
just a pastime.
On completing primary
school, Payne-Greenidge left
the village to become a member
of the Guyana Defence Force.
However, with soldiering not re-
ally "her calling", she left in
1979 to live in Caribbean.
There, she took her entre-
preneurial skills to another level,
making regular trips home ex-
porting craft for which the vil-
lage had made a name for itself.
The caring nature for fam-
ily in Payne-Greenidge, saw her
assisting family and other close
relatives to "stand on their own
feet" in the islands.

Payne-Greenidge subse-

family union about three years

at the same time satisfy the
needs of her family.
She procured the plot of
family land and set to work, but

at 09:00hrs at Rosignol on September 23 and then on to Parika and
back to the Georgetown the same day.
They will participate in a rally at the YMCA Grounds on Tho-
mas Lands. Georgetown the same day before returning home.
"We anticipate over two hundred peace lovers and motorcycle
enthusiasts with bikes ranging from the big 600 CBRs through dirt
bikes to the little Chappies to participate.
"We know that many more in Berbice, Demerara and Essequibo
will join the procession as we roll through their areas. All peace
loving bikers are invited," Harrichand said.
He added that members of the group are now working on the
logistics of the ride such as fuel for bikes, repairs en route and other
such matters and would be grateful for financial help from the pub-
lic and business sector to make it a roaring success.

and harmony in Guyana.
"We ride our bikes to promote peace and harmony." Harrichand
They held their first ride for peace from Corriverton to New

and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Na-
tions in the establishment of the global ceasefire."

Call for Proposals
EDUCARE Guyana is a programme charged with combating child labour through education.
Through ongoing research, EDUCARE has identified children who are in need of support. The
target children are either'at risk' of entering child labour or they are currently engaged in a
Worst Form of Child Labour. EDUCARE intends to provide support to ensure that these children
both remain in school, and are able to fully participate in the education process, or provide
educational opportunities within their communities, that will enhance their skills and will lead to
them removing themselves from the Child Labour market
EDUCARE is looking for partner organizations to deliver the following services:
a) School Feeding Programmes; b) Uniform provision; c) Remedial Literacy Programmes; d)
Non-formal and Formal Skill-based Tec-Voc programmes; e) Parent Education Programmes & f)
Public Awareness and Community Education Programmes.
Ideally EDUCARE is looking for partners who have a track record in delivering these types of
programmes, and who are prepared to take on a pro-active engagement in combating Child
Labour in Guyana Equally EDUCARE welcomes applications from all organizations that wish to
engage in the eradication of Child Labour in Guyana.
EDUCARE is a 2 phase programme. In this Phase 1 for the academic year 2006/7 we are
looking to implement programmes in the following areas:
1. Region 3
2. Region 7 Bartica -
3. Region 10 Linden
4. Region 6 New Amsterdam, Canje and Albion.
If you are a Non-Governmental Organisation, Community Based Organisation, a Faith-Based

storeroom on the ground floor
of the wooden building, on High
Street, Kingston, which is
mainly filled with cardboard.
Among the items stored
lectionically. Surujbally said,
was: the voters list.
"We have all pictures, all
records and all folios," he told
members of the media at the fire
scene yesterday.
He said that it is still un-
clear what started the fire. He
refused to speculate on its ori-
gin and stressed the relevant
authorities should be allowed
to do theirjobs.
Newly sworn in Minister of
Home Affairs, Mr. Clement
Rohee said that it is too early to
link the GECOM fire to those
which recently destroyed the
National Communication Net-
work Linden's transmission\
building and the Region Four
(Demerara/Mahaica) Regional
Democratic Council (RDC)
building at Paradise, East Coast
Demerara on the morning of

September 2.
"I don't think it would be
correct for me to create a link-
age... since we have no conclu-
sive evidence with respect to
these fires. We can't do that," he
He stated that he was
briefed by the relevant authori-
ties and has asked for a full re-
port as soon as possible.
Minister Rohee also refused
to link the fire politically.
"We have to bear in mind that
all political leaders stated that they
are committed to peace following
the elections.... As it stands, we
must believe that and operate within
that framework," he said.
However, he said that if
completed investigations reveal
that the fire was deliberately set,
the perpetrators will be dealt
with under the Terrorism Act un-
der which arson to public build-
ing is covered.
"If it is so, that this fire was
not ... electrical, we have a law
called the Terrorism Act which

will see perpetrators punished,"
Rohee stated.
He commended the mem-
bers of the Guyana Fire Service
(GFS) for their quick reaction.
GECOM Commissioner
Mr. Robert Williams said that
the building housed "institu-
tional memory" but nothing lost
has any significant bearing on the
recent elections.
He said that documents such
as educational material for vot-
ers which took three years to
prepare were destroyed.
He said that all national reg-
istration records were destroyed,
but the Master Registration
Card was in a concrete fire-proof
building in the back of the com-
pound. About six buildings are in
the compound.
However, equipment worth
millions of dollars was lost as a
result of the blaze.
A large group of persons
including workers of GECOM
turned up on the scene as
news of the fire spread.

NEW Minister in the Education Ministry, Dr. Desrey Fox.

By Claudia Parsons

NEW YORK, (Reuters) Tour guide Ann Van Hine is rewarded
with tears, not tips, and frequently reduces visitors to an awed
silence when she tells them how her husband, a firefighter, died
at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
"Sometimes I feel bad because I look at people's faces as I'm
telling my story and it's like I've just blown them away," Van Hine
said after leading 25 tourists from as far afield as Italy and Australia
on a tour around the perimeter of the gaping hole known as Ground
She says younger visitors often chat freely with her before the
tour, but afterwards, 'They don't know what to say to me."
As she is about to climb a steep flight of stairs to a walkway
over the highway west of the site, Van Hine asks visitors to imagine
climbing stairs loaded up with firefighting equipment. "The
firefighters. got up to about the 70th floor, so it would have been
like doing what we're doing 35 times."
She and her husband, Richard Bruce Van Hine, had two daugh-
ters aged 14 and 17 at the time of the attacks that killed 2,992 people
in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
"Ten days after, I asked my girls where they thought Daddy
was and they said they thought Daddy was in heaven," she said,
adding that she visited Ground Zero on Sept. 28, 2001.
"It looked like war," she said, standing with her back to the 16-
acre site. "There were still fires burning, there was this gray dust
everywhere. Some part of me I think expected to see a computer
monitor or a desk or something. There was nothing."

Five years after two hijacked planes crashed into the Twin Tow-
ers, the debris has been entirely removed, leaving a hole several sto-
ries deep. Through the middle, above the surface, run a set of sub-
way tracks.
To the south is an empty 41-story skyscraper swathed in black net-
ting, still contaminated by debris and mold that grew in the weeks after the
attack when it was open to the elements. Workers dismantling it occasion-
ally still find what may be bone shards in the building.
Dorry Tooker, a second guide on the free tours offered by the
September 11 Families' Association between two and four times a
day, points to another, taller tower to the east, and reminds visitors
the Twin Towers were twice as high.
Cristina Urbanek, a 33-year-old graduate student from Hamburg,
Germany, said she saw them still standing in 1998.
"I wanted to see the difference," she said. "I thought it would
make it a bit more real."
"I'm ... a bit surprised so far there's no real memorial or any-
thing," she said.
Construction of a memorial and the 'Freedom Tower' on the site
has been mired in controversy with families, city officials and archi-
tects wrangling over plans. A memorial costing $510 million is planned
to be ready by Sept. 11, 2009.
In the meantime, families of the dead have a makeshift building
reserved for them within the perimeter. Tooker, whose son, a
firefighter, died in the North Tower, said it was mostly frequented
by those whose relatives were never found.
"My son was found, so I don't feel that my son is here any
more. But for these people who haven't, they're still there."
St. Paul's Chapel, next to Ground Zero, serves for many as
an interim memorial. Though it was carpeted in dust and de-
bris, it escaped serious damage and became a centre for rescue
workers as well as a shrine where desperate relatives would
leave flyers with. p totos of the missing, flowers, candles, po-.
ems and 4ther g. '' a .. ',, nd, o-

his duties. "Street intelli-
gence and intelligence from
communities and
neighborhoods" are impor-
tant if the national security of
the country is to be main-
tained, he noted.
He added that it would be
dangerous if the country were to
develop a false sense of security
at this time, given the lull in
criminal activities, and called for
the maintenance of vigilance.
Minister Rohee said coop-
eration among the disciplined
forces, the private sector and the
media would be essential to the
way he carries out his functions.
Leader of The United Force
(TUF) Mr. Manzoor Nadir, who
remains as the representative of
his party in the National As-
sembly, sees his appointment as
Minister of Labour as crucial.
He said the sector is critical
to the development of the coun-
try, and was quick to point out
that contrary to popular belief,
the ministry's role has not only
to do with "strikes and Occupa-
tional health and safety" but the
development of the human re-
source of the country.
Nadir said he would be
sitting and working with the

staff at the ministry to see
what programmes are there to
carry out, and especially
which ones need to be accel-

But, along with the. opportunities,
the sector is also facing.some
challenges. Foremost among
these is efficient packaging and
shipping. '
GMC through the Guyana Trade
and Investment Support project;-
has embarked on a small project to
provide plastic containers for
export farmers and Caribbean
Containers Inc is providing quality
cartoons for exporters. These
measures should seereduced loss
atthe market end.
Fluctuating prices and unethical
practices are also affecting the
growth of the sector. Farmers hot
being paid on' time and exporters
demanding more for their produce
after export are some of the
challenges that have to befaced.
The National Competitiveness
Strategy points to the need to
develop a more effective
phytosanitary control. system. to
meet the demands of developing
the fruit and vegetable export
industry. Activities highlighted' in
the Strategy include improving:
plant inspection at points of entry;
installing a rapid response unit to
control outbreaks of' pests,
improvinf pesticide residue;,.
control, training farmers on the use ,
of pesticides and achieving.
international accreditation `on
phytosanitarystandards.' :

Along with these fresh produce, a
significant quantity of processed
foods including pastas, jams, jellies
and sauces are exported. .
According to Hassan, produce come
from certified farms at Charity and
Pomeroon on the Essequibo Coast
along with others at Parika, Salem,
Boersarie, and Regions Four, Five
Six and Ten.
To reach export standard, farms
must be certified and one of the
services offered by GMC is
assistance to farmers to have their
farms certified.
Farmers wanting to supply foreign
markets can walk.in to the GMC
Office at Robb and Alexander Street
where officers are willing to walk the
farmer through the process from
becoming certified to cargo carriers.
In addition, information on market
access can be obtained from the
Golnvest web site
There are also opportunities for
individuals wanting to export fresh
produce. These persons can also'
access information on where
markets are available, export
requirements and other details from
GMC or Golnvest.

Only recently GMC secured a
market for 10,000 tons of fresh
peppers to New York. Alongwiththe
National Agriculture Research
Institute (NARI) which has produced
the pepper plants and technical
support GMOC is working on a pilot
project with five farmers from Laluni.
Parika. Bath Settlement. Black Bush
Polder and Crab Wood Creek to
meetthis market
Once the pilot phase is successful
full, large-scale production will begin
and more farmers will be involved

-General-Manager of the Guyana
Marketing: Corporation (GMC),
Guyana is providing significant
quantities of fresh produce to
satisfy the needs. of Caribbean
'countries including Barbados,
Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, St.
Lucia, St. Kitts-Nevis, St. Marten
and further north to the USA and
Guyana's; wiri-wiri peppers and
'buxton spice' mangos are in high
demand in markets in New York,
Miami and Toronto and so too are a
number. of !other fruits and
vegetables grown here including
eddoess; plantains, coconuts,
waterme'l.on, pineapples,
pu"okins andithe list would paint a
picture cnf Bourda Green.
According to Hassan, for the first

seven month of 2006, the Sophia
packing facility processed,
1,068,983Kg of fresh fruits and
.vegetables for export
Back in the mid 1990's when the
Pink Mealy Bug infestation had
gripped Guyana; the export of fresh
produce had ground almosttoa halt
There was a concerted effort to
e.radica.e the disease and
subsequently the packing facility
was established to ensure produce
leaving here was pest free and
conformed to internationally set
standards for the export of fresh
Its strict compliance with sanitary
and phyto-sanitary measures and.
adherence to export policies make.
the facility the best option for
exporters and importers. All produce
is inspected by plant quarantine
officers before export.
Since its establishment in 2001
export of fresh produce leaving the
facility has grown from 489 tonnes to
1Q69 atthe end oflastyear.

evidence of

human impact

on C02 in air:,
NORWVICH (Reuters) Air from the oldest ice core'con-
firms human activity has increased the greenhouse
gas carbon dioxide (C02) in the atmosphere to levels
not seen for hundreds of thousands of years, scien-
tists said last week.
Bubbles of xir in the 800.00(0- ear-old ice, drilled in the Ant-
arctic, show levels of C02 changing with the climate.. But the
present levels are out of-the previous range.
"It is from air bubbles that we know for sure that carbon
dioxide has increased by about 35 per cent in the last 200 years,"
said Dr Eric Wolff of the British Antarctic Survey and the leader
of the science team for the 10-nation European Project for Ice
Coring in Antarctica.
"Before the last 200 years, which man ha, been influenc-
ing, it was pretty steady," he added.
The natural level of C02 over most of the past 800,000
years has been 180-300 parts per million by volume:.(ppmv)
of air. But today it is at 380 ppmv.
"The most scary thing is that carbon dioxide today is not
just out of the range of ni hat happened in the I*s,[ 65( .00 s ears
but already up 100 per cent out of the range," \oV:ff sJaid at the
British Association Festival of Science in Norn ich. eastern En-
C02 was close to 280 ppmi from 1000 AD until 1800
and then it accelerated toward its present concentration.
Wolff added that measurements of carbon isotopes showed
the extra C02 coming from a fossil source. due to in-
creased human activity.
The ice core record showed it used to take about 1,000 years
for a C02 increase of 30 ppmv. It has risen by that much in
the last 17 years alone.
"We really are in a situation u here something is happening
that we don't have any analog for m our records. It is an ex-
periment that we don't know the result of," he added.
Professor Peter Smith, of the University of Nottingham in
England, said the stud., ;howed more needed to be done.
"There is an urgent need to find innovative technolo-
gies to reduce the impact we are having on our climate,"
he told the science conference.

How Marion Jones was cleared

By Tom Fordyce -

IT seemed like a case set in
Marion Jones had tested
positive for banned blood-
booster EPO, and her glittering,
Olympic gold medal-winning ca-
reer was in ruins.
Or not. On Thursday, her
legal team announced that her
'B' sample had tested negative.
and that she had therefore been
cleared of doping allegations.
How could Jones' "B'
sample not back up the 'A'
sample, when both were drawn

Marion Jones has been
under scrutiny since the
BALCO scandal erupted.

from the same single urine
BBC Sport reveals all.
Two samples could possi-
bly show different readings if
Jones' urine had been mis-
handled or stored incorrectly.
Jacques Pruvost, a former
doctor with the French athletics
federation, said: "If the samples
are small, you cannot find it
(EPO) after a few weeks.
"It's a game of the athletes;
surrounded by lawyers, to ask
for the counter-evaluation ('B'
test) as late as possible."

- But Michele Verroken.
the former head of anti-dop-
ing at UK Sport, ruled out
that theory in Jones' case.
Verroken said the Los An-
geles laboratories that dealt
with Jones' samples are among
the best in the world.
"I'm sure the US Anti-
Doping Agency IUSADA) vwll
have ruled out problems with
the sample." she told BBC
-I couldn't speak more
highly of them. I've had the
opportunity to work with
them, and I know how their
new set-up has really moved
anti-doping issues forward."

So what really happened
between the 'A' and 'B' tests?
Put brutally, the current
test for EPO is not as decisive
as you might think.
Introduced by the World
Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)
in 2003, it was designed as a
cheaper and more effective ver-
sion of the old blood and urine
test that had come in after the
Sydney Olympics in 2000.
Verroken says: "Anti-dop-
ing authorities knew they were
losing athletes through the net,
so they worked on a new de-
tection method."
The trouble is, the new
test a urine-only one has
proved to have serious flaws.
"WADA thought it would
be fine, that they had a scien-
tifically valid method," said
"But it seems that the
scientific data can give false
"The readings can imply
that the EPO is man-made,
when it could, in fact, be
naturally occurring.
"WADA has issued a num-
ber of clarification documents,
in which they've indicated to
laboratories that they must get
another lab to look at the re-
sults before they issue it.
"They have these safety
measures in place because they

stairied to notice that in cases
w here they would read the data

Chappell gears

up for maiden

Australia clash
CHENNAI, India (Reuters) Greg Chappell said yesterday he
felt no extra pressure at facing Australia for the first time since
taking over as India coach more than a year ago.
India meet world champions Australia and West Indies in a three-
way one-day series in Malaysia from Tuesday.
"I am not overly concerned about Australia," the Australian great
told reporters after a practice match in the southern Indian city of
"I will focus on what we need to do and plan accordingly. 1 am
only concerned about how we play and win," he added.
The Indian team left for Kuala Lumpur late Saturday and
play West Indies in their opening match next Thursday.
Chappell's name has been mentioned among the possible can-
didates to succeed Australia coach John Buchanan.
Former Test captain Mark Taylor will lead a five-man commit-
tee to recommend the next Austra-
lian coach.
Chappell, however, brushed
aside the talk as premature.

Neil Manthiorp, writes an open
letter to Ken Gordon. President
of the West Indies Cricket
Board, over the recent cancella-
tion of the Stanford Super Stars
match against South Africa)
Dear Mr Gordon
Greetings from South Af-
rica. Hope you are well.
You may be interested to
know that news of the cancel-
lation of the 20/20 game be-
tween a West Indian 'Stanford
All Stars' XI and South Africa.
scheduled for November 10, has
been received here in South Af-
rica with utter dismay.
Your own reason for its can-
cellation was, at face value.
straightforward: Pakistan "re-
fused" to rearrange the dates of
your scheduled tour to that
country in order to accommo-
date the 20/20 fixture (which, as
you know, was organised in
February and ratified by the
Yet. last Thursday. the
chairman of the Pakistan Cricket
Board, Mr Shaharvar Khan,
said: "Because we hold the West
Indies board in such high regard.
I said (to the board) we must
bend over backwards to accom-
modate them, even if it meant

bumping into our national
Twently20 tournament.
"I spoke to my board which
said we couldn't do a week but
we could squeeze in four or five
days. I was about to convey this
(to the WICB) when 1 was told
the Stanford exercise was off. 1
await the West Indies board's
final comment on this".
Mr Gordon, I cannot com-
ment on the attitude or effect
that Mr Stanford has had on
West Indian cricket although 1
have yet to hear anybody
criticising the recently inaugu-
rated 20/20 domestic competi-
tion. And it does seem extraor-
dinary to stage a 'winner-takes-
all' 20-over game worth five mil-
lion dollars.
I'm not sure how the
WICB and the players would
have divided and spent the
money had you won the game.
but I am aware that one of the
conditions of ICC's sanction
was that a percentage of it
should be spent on developing
the game in the smaller islands
of the Caribbean.
Here in South Africa the
national players agreed to
give 70 percent of it to our
national board to be spent on
the development of the game.
Of course, there would still



have been plenty for the play-
ers had they been fortunate
enough to win, but the im-
pact on cricket for future gen-
erations would have been life-
I'm sure you must have
heard the story of Makhaya
Ntini's 'discovery'? A develop-
ment clinic passed through his
tiny village of Mdingi in the
Eastern Cape and Makhaya's
journey from goat-herder to in-
spirational role model for mil-
lions had begun.
I have heard many stories
and rumours about why you
didn't want this game to take
place. I see you have shared
some of the responsibility for its
cancellation with the West
Indies captain, Brian Lara. But
I would prefer to believe none
of them as I have never met you
and every man deserves the
benefit of a stranger's doubt.
One of the men in charge of
development in South Africa is
Vince van der Bijl. He told me:
"If we had been lucky enough
to win the match then it would
have meant an extraordinary
windfall for South African
cricket, enough to make a last-

Powell recovers to maintain

dominance at World Final

By Kevin Fylan

(Renters) Asafa Powell had
to recover from another poor
100 metres start to extend his
winning run at the World
Athletics Final yesterday.
Powell was slow out of the
blocks. just as he had been in
Brussels two weeks ago, and
had to work harder than ex-
pected to clinch victor .in a
championship record 9.89 sec-
unds. ahead of the Americans
Leonard Scotl and Tyson Gay.
It was a 12th legal sub-10
seconds 100 metres of the sea-
son for the Jamaican. who had
been eyeing a S100 000 bonus
for breaking his o\n world
record of 9.77 seconds, a mark
he has equalled twice this year.
Still unbeaten in 2006. he
had to settle for the $30 000
for first place. part of a prize
pot of $3 million at the two-
day meeting.
"' just fell dead in the first
half of the race." Powell said.
America's Jeremy Wanner
likewise maintained his domi-
nance in the 400 metres, while
world record holder Xiang Liu
was roared on by a large Chi-
nese contingent in the crowd at

the Gonlieb-Daimler-Stadion as

Lashinda Demus blew away
the field in the women's 400

Allyson Felix outpaced
Sanya Richards in another
American one-tw.o in the
women's 200. Jamaican Sherone
Simpson, w ho w ill be among the
fa\ourites for the 100 toda., had
to settle for third place.

The crowd had come hop-
ing to see a world record from
another Jamaican but Powell
was unsealed by along delay
following a false start.
"I just stayed in my blocks
a hlile too long." the 23-year-
old said. "But I told myself I
could run as fast a, am of these
guys and I picked up my stride
to come through in the end."
Wariner. who like Powell
and Richards won $250 000
for completing a perfect
Golden League season in
Berlin last weekend, had to
give everything to hold off
Gary Kikaya of Congo and
.'the American LaShawn

Merritt and win in 44,02.
"That was a great way to
finish my season," said the
world and Ol npic champion.
'Those guys have been on my


hips all season and today they
dug in and ran really well."
NMbulaeni Mulaudzi won
a tactical men's 800 race in
1:46.99. The South African
bloke from deep with 60

Windies arrive

in Malaysia for

tough DLF Cup

(CMC) West Indies arrived
in Malaysia yesterday morn-
ing to begin their DLF Cup
Tri-nation Series campaign,
after a long flight from Lon-
don to the southeast Asian
The 14-man squad, headed
by West Indies captain Brian
Lara, are expected to' begin

tournament that involves one-
day superpowers India and
Australia, and which begins next
"The players had the rest of
yesterday off to rest after the
long journey via London and
training will commence this
morning," Imran Khan, the West
Indies media officer said yester-
SWest Indies will face a
stern test over the September
12-24 tournament as they
clash with Australia, the
No.1-ranked One-day Inter-
national side and. India,
ranked No.4.
The regional side are cur-
rently ranked No.7 in the ODI
tables but x ill be e\pecing to
rediscover'the form they exhib-
ited when they beat India 4-1 in

the five-match series in the Car-
ibbean earlier this year.
Their ODI form against
Australia has been less encour-
aginghowever as they have lost
six of the last nine matches


against the World champions.
West Indies will open
against Australia on September
12 before facing India two days
Each team will play
each other twice with the
two top ieams advancing to
the final scheduled for
September 24.

Woolmer expects

close World Cup

BOB Woolmer, the Pakistan
coach, believes next year's
World Cup in West Indies will
be the one of the most open
in the competition's history.
Woolmer's side have been
widely tipped as one of the
leading challengers to de-
fending champions Australia,
given the wide array of talent
they have at their disposal in
all areas.
They dominated the open-
ing fixtures of their ongoing
one-day series against England
which they lead 2-1 heading into
today's finale at Edgbaston.
Despite an eight-wicket de-
feat against England under the
Trent Bridge floodlights on n-
day, Woolmer's men remain an
impressive one-day outfit.
But Woolmer reckons Paki -
stan are just one of several sides
who had a shot at winning the
World Cup, which takes place
in the Caribbean during March
and Apyil.
"This World Cup in par-
ticular is going to be one of the
closest World Cups of all time
because there are so many sides
at an even level," he said. "Aus-
tralia have been pegged back a
little bit and there are a lot of
teams who can win at any one
"For three games we have
been written up as world cham-
pions but we know that that
just doesn't happen. The nature
of limited overs matches means
,,that-unulkeTest.cricket-it is dif-
ficult i,;. fight back when in a

WQolmer added that cose
finishes in ODIs are actually
quite rare: "One-day cricket is
a lottery, if a team gets on top it
can lead to a situation like we
had (on Friday) evening where
one team wins quite easily.
"One side bats well, the
other bowls badly, it is all'rela-
tive. Very rarely do you get re-

ally close games in international

Grand Master Jad

gets better with age

JAD Rahaman remains local
motor racing's good wine. At
age 50, and after 30 years in
the business, Rahaman is
driving better than before and
proved that when he snatched
three victories at an interna-
tional meeting held at Bushy
Park in Barbados one week
Driving a Ford Escort, the
evergreen Rahaman, now
known as the 'Grand Master'
blazed Bushy Park to claim
champion driver of Group Two
The victories also increased
his points tally to 130 points
and earned him first position on
the Group Two B points table.
Rahaman is also in an excel-
lent position for a possible over-
all win of the-category when the
last leg of the championship se-
ries is held later this year.
"The more the car runs
the better it gets. I can say
that we had four trouble-free
meetings in Barbados," the
champion driver said in an
interview last week. "I have
now settled in a lot more to,
the Bushy Park track,"
Rahaman added.
The next stage of the cham-
pionship is scheduled for Octo-
ber 15 but Rahaman will not be
driving the Ford Escort then.
The speed ace pointed out

that his vehicle is on its way
back to Guyana to participate
in the October 29 grand inter-
national meeting at the South
Dakota Circuit.
However, a team of Barba-
dians, headed by Freddie
Mapp, will prepare a car for

Rahaman in which he will at-
tempt becoming the first
Guyanese to win the overall
Group Two B champion driver
title of a series in Barbados.
"My chances of winning
the champion driver title are
excellent. I only need to se-

cure about two third places to
get there," Rahaman de-
clared. The meeting was the
third in Barbados this year
for Rahaman who has so far
secured six first places, one
second and two thirds which
translates into 130 points.

By Michael Perry

SYDNEY (Reuters) Evolution and the environment, not just
gluttony, has led to a global obesity pandemic, with an
estimated 1.5 billion people overweight more than the
number of undernourished people an obesity conference was
told on Monday last.
The mounting epidemic of obesity in children would see many
die before their parents, said Kate Steinbeck, co-chair of the 10th
International Congress on Obesity in Sydney.
"This is the first generation in history where children may die
before their parents," Steinbeck told the conference.
Health experts at the week-long congress which started on
Monday said calls for the past 30 years for people to eat less fatty
foods and exercise more had failed to combat global obesity.
Obesity had become an "insidious killer and the major
contributing cause of preventable diseases such as diabetes and heart
disease," said conference co-chair Paul Zimmet.
"It is a disease with disastrous health, social and economic
consequences," Zimmet told the conference.
Steinbeck said fighting obesity was not simply a matter of
people eating less and exercising more, but discovering
environmental and genetic contributors to obesity.
"We know this is not about gluttony it is the interaction of
heredity and environment," said Steinbeck.
New obesity research has found that too little sleep and fats
from fast food can alter a person's biology, making them more
susceptible to overeating and less active, said the International
Association for the Study of Obesity.
"Research into obesity should be given top priority to have
any hope of combating the global pandemic," said Are Vernon,
president of the association.

Vernon said millions of obese people were being
discriminated against and stigmatised, and often denied access
to medical services.
"A growing proportion of morbidly obese people are at the
extreme end of the spectrum but are stigmatised and ignored," he

Dietary supplements and alternative treatments promising
weight loss have minimal or no effect because they cannot match
evolutionary influences that cause the body to conserve energy in
times of famine, Dr Anne-Thea McGill told the conference.
McGill, senior lecturer in Population Health at the University
of Auckland, said humans were designed to maximise their energy
intake because their large brains used about one-quarter of their total
energy expenditure.
"Early humans sought energy-dense food with high levels of
fats, starches and sugars. We are genetically programmed to find
foods with these qualities appealing," said McGill.
"However, highly energy-dense Western diets have had many
of the flavour and micronutrients processed out of them. The
artificial replacements in starchy, fatty and sugary foods make them
over-palatable and easy to eat quickly."
But too much processed food results in an excess energy intake
deficient in micronutrients, producing a state of "malnutrition,"
which in turn sees the body react to a "famine stress" by storing
fat around the upper body, said McGill.
"Many over-the-counter remedies such as concentrated herbal
preparations, food extracts, minerals and vitamins are promoted as
helping to decrease body weight," she said.
"However, they do not redress the nutrient imbalance from
poor diets that produce obesity."

She says she needs to do what she needs to do because
she cannot give me 100 per cent. She is a missionary and

and she doesn't want to make me a promise and fail again.
I understand. But because we did not start this the right

THE Guyana Court of Appeal
in 1976 freed accused Ken
Barrow of robbery and set
aside the conviction and
sentence after finding that
his identification was
That appeal by Barrow suc-
ceeded after the Appellate
Court found that the police who
were looking for a man with a
scar on the left side of the face,
conducted an identification pa-
rade in which the suspect was
the only man on parade with a
scar on the left side of the face.
And, it was discovered too
that the Police in the conduct of
the parade did not add the sav-
ings clause by telling the witness
who was called in to identify
the robber that he should only
pick out anyone if that person
was on parade.
The Appellate Court, con-
dumcted by Chancellor J.O. F.
Haynes, S.C., and included Jus-
tices of Appeal Victor Crane and
R. H. Luckhoo concluded that

the I. D. parade was improp-
erly conducted. The appeal was
allowed and the conviction and
sentence were set aside.
Attorney-at-Law, James
Patterson, who later became a
High Court Judge in this coun-
try, appeared for the appellant.
while Senior State Counsel Loris
Ganpatsingh, who also subse-
quently became a judge in
Guyana, represented the State.
The facts of the case dis-
closed that Barrow, in company
with other men, entered the
Cummings Street yard of gold-
smith Richard Beharry on the
night of January 28. 1974, and
robbed his wife, Edna, of sev-
eral pieces of gold jewellery.
While three of the men were
engaged in robbing Edna inside
the house, the accused was aid-
ing and abetting them by hold-
ing on to Richard, violently as-
saulting him outside, and at the
same time keeping a look out to
facilitate the crime.
After the robbers had de-

parted with their booty, Beharry
reported to the Police giving a
statement in which he described
his attacker as a short, dark,
negro man with a scar on the
left side of the face.
This information led to the
arrest of the accused and when
the police came to stage an iden-
tity parade, they did so with the
accused as the only person with
a scar on the left side of his
Barrow was convicted of fe-
lonious wounding and robbery
under arms and was sentenced
to five years' in jail on each
count, concurrently.
On appeal, counsel for
the accused complained that
at the close of the case for the
prosecution at Assizes, he
sought leave of the judge to
make submissions in the
presence of the jury, but the
judge overruled the submis-
sion and said they had to be
made in the jury's absence.
This was a grave irregular-

ity, counsel contended, since
there was no jurisdiction in the
trial judge to conduct any part
of criminal proceedings in the
absence of the jury.
SThe complaint, said the ap-
pellate Court's judgment, was
also made that the identification
parade was unfairly conducted
for two reasons that it was
highly prejudicial to the accused
to place him on parade with
other persons who did not have
scars on their faces; that it was
not made clear to Beharry that
the suspect was not necessarily
on the identification parade. Yet
another complaint was that in-
admissible prejudicial evidence
was allowed during the course
of the trial without any warn-
ing to the jury to disregard it

In his judgment, Chan-
cellor Haynes held:
(1) "That in the light of
very recent authority on what
is the correct rule of practice, it
cannot be said in the instant
case that the trial judge erred in
ruling that the submissions
should be made in the jury's ab-
sence. In any event, no injustice
resulted from the judge's deci-

sion to hear the submissions in
their absence.
(2) That the identification


parade with the accused as the
only man with a scar on the left
side of his face was a farce. It
was no test at all, since Beharry
could have picked out no other
person than the accused.
(3) That the trial judge has
a discretion as to whether he
should or should not draw the

jury's attention the presence of
inadmissible prejudicial evidence
that has been inadvertently let
in in the course of his trial.
(4) Chancellor Crane held
that the summing-up was of
little or no help to the jury in
that it did not highlight the vac-
illating nature of Beharry's tes-
timony on the matter of the
scar as his means of identifica-
(5) That it was unfair to
mount a parade with the ac-
cused as the only suspect with
a scar on the left side of his
face. Moreover, for the officer-
in charge of it to fail to add a
savings clause to the effect that
the suspect should be identified
only if he is on parade vitiated
the conviction and sentence.
(6) Justice of Appeal R. H.
Luckhoo noted that the identi-
fication was unreliable. It was
incumbent on the trial judge to
draw the jury's attention to all
relevant factors as tended to di-
minish the cogency of the iden-

low-earning girlfriend, Jonathan could find a job, which meant he could pay rent.
The experts would say that, in part at least, Suzanne was responsible for allowing Jonathan to be
dependent and it was not healthy for either of them. If they explored the issue in therapy they would
find they didn't have enough in common outside this mutual need. The woman would do better to
look for a more equal relationship. Once he starts despising her, the damage is done.
But why should an omega male come to despise a woman he once admired? Laverne Walcott, psy-
chologist, explains a dominant woman may be initially exciting, but the fact is that most men like to
dominate and women need to be aware of that. Ultimately, the remnant of the hunter/male ego remains
and is likely to resurface.
Rebecca, 40, who works in banking, admits that she was always drawn to men who were, unlike
herself, non-establishment. For years she was happy with the short-lived flings this yearning led her
to. But when she hit her late 30s and the biological clock start ticking, she began to panic. "Roger was
a talented musician and at the beginning I assumed, with my support, his big break was going to come.
He was forever talking about meetings with record execs that were just about to happen. He played
gigs with his band in clubs at weekends and the rest of the time he slouched around the house, writing
songs. Still I loved how different he was from me. When we got married, he didn't even have a suit to
With Roger slouching around her flat all day, it was a complete mess by the time she got home, but
his point was, he was happy to live dirty and eat bits and pieces. "If I needed to live life differently,
that was fine, but it was my choice and I had to sort it out. He was quite happy to eat the nice food I
brought home.
Why an intelligent woman would not be fooled by these relationship terrorists is not difficult
to understand. When you first fall in love, you turn a blind eye to the more glaring faults and
you project what you want from a love partner on to this person. You want it to fit, particularly
when, as for many alpha females who prioritise their careers, the end of the child bearing
years approaches. An element of desperation can set in and many of the men who are their
intelligent equals will already be married, to more family-focused women.
Brutal honesty is the best safeguard against being used. Ask yourself: without my money
and success, would he still be marrying me? Is this a parent/child relationship rather than
lover/lover? Is this a great affair rather than a great long-term plan? Rebecca sees now that
the Roger relationship failed on all these criteria and that marrying him was a disaster. That
even though he'd dismissively agreed to have children at some point it was never going to
happen. "Roger told me people only worked long office hours to make themselves feel impor

tant. It was defensiveness on his part, but I see that he was
slowly poisoning my mind against myself. Not consciously, just
for self-protection."
Two years in, Rebecca, at 38, felt she couldn't put off having
children any longer. "Whenever I tried to talk about it, it was al-
ways something. He said we'd sort it out in the next few months,
like his elusive record contract. So, in the end, I forced the issue.
Big mistake. He turned on me. Apparently I was always trying to
make him feel inadequate, always nagging at him. Did I think that
just because I earned a good salary and lived in a big flat which I
cleaned obsessively in his eyes that I had achieved anything? He
told me not to believe all those friends he knew I moaned to about
him. I didn't; that I was the crazy one, obsessed with status. He
said I treated him like a pet. He said he pitied any kid that would
have me as its pushy mother.
Roger's ingratitude and the burning resentment that exploded
so brutally are things that Rebecca will take a long time to deal
with. At least, she now accepts, it killed the relationship quickly.
By the end of the weekend, Roger was sleeping on his sister's sofa.
Rebecca is now dating another banker. They are trying for children.
Relationship terrorists will always allow women to do everything,
but they won't feel good about themselves it's the substitute mother
figure. Rebecca says it was Roger's aggression and bitterness that
hurt her. It seemed as if he wanted to cause her as much pain as
possible. And that is the nature of the relationship terrorist; happy
for a while with an easy life, in the end his own lack of fulfillment,
his anger with himself, will turn to misplaced revenge against the
hand that fed him.

WHEN Guyanese, both in and
out of Georgetown, lost the
social custom of attending
matinees and night shows of-
fering more than one hun-
dred old and new films per
week, they also lost at least
sixty per cent of their social
pleasure, and educational
stimulus. Home viewing of
TV, DVDs, etc, could not re-
place this loss, because the
great films previously seen
were either absent or un-
known. The excitement of
cinemas could not be replaced
by personal viewing, which
reduced films to trivial per-
sonal toys, also increasing
one's electricity bill at home,
and isolated citizens from the
collective learning cinemas
The effect of this loss also
came to be felt later in the soci-
ety when cinemas were no
longer there to curb'idleness on

a daily basis, or force people to
organise their hours of freedom
and work more seriously. The
result was a new trend of scenm-
inglv endless social lawlessness
since the 1980's. which also
proved that all the political
organising, protests, demands
for anti-colonial self-rule. etc.
did not result in a less violent
and disruptive society than pre-
vious decades, but an even more
disruptive and violent one, de-
spite the absence of a foreign
colonial regime. Could it be then
that there were several local be-
liefs, opinions, attitudes, other
than those blamable on our co-
lonial heritage., which we did
not heed or criticise in ourselves,
and which therefore persisted
unchecked, resulting in the nu-
merous violent and crude social
problems Guyanese society suf-
fers from today?
Certain films, other than
political or ideological ones,

answered this local question
in the past, and can answer it
also today, because of the
psychological and cultural
relevance of their topics. One
such film is 'The Unforgiven',
of 1959. a beautiful wide-

starring Audrey Hepburn,

When this film opened at
Georgetown's Plaza Cinema
in 1960, a shocking story of
local relevance and
implication captured the
attention of thousands over a
few weeks. The film was
clearly recognized by the

going to have performances from all over the Caribbean.
Hmm! Sheer excitement oui!

Amidst the excitement though, there is cause for reflection on
the meaning of all of this. This Caribbean Festival of Arts and Culture
holds a meaning and a power beyond even what we ourselves
understand. The artist, as he weaves and creates his own world and
reality, remains a powerful litmus test of the times.
During this Carifesta we face, all of us, having to deal with the
challenges of globalisation, natural disasters, HIV and AIDS, child
abuse, crime, moral decline and so much more. This celebration of
ourselves allows us to look inward towards the strength which we
have demonstrated for centuries, and guides us as we project an image
of a proud people unified by our differences, finding true harmony
in our diversity.

The involvement of our youth population and school children
throughout Trinidad and Tobago will provide another important
opportunity for us as hosts to deepen the process of regional
understanding and integration, even as we continue to discover
ourselves. Critical to this will be the outcomes of the youth symposia
where the young people will be able to discuss issues such as HIV/
AIDS, preservation of our indigenous traditions and the importance
of Caribbean cinema and film in shaping identity.
The adults will also be engaging in critical discourse, with a view
to incorporating the artist more significantly in the new a path for
the Caribbean. Emphasis will be placed on all aspects of our creative
artforms, from the literary to the dramatic, from the visual to the
As we mature as a people and strive for empowerment it is in
these celebrations of the people of the region, that we find our
humanity, our humility and our raison d'etre.
Join with us as we prepare to share ourselves with our Caribbean
brothers and sisters, and make them feel truly welcome.

This confluence of regional energies makes the selected theme
for Carifesta this year, 'Celebrating Our People, Contesting the World
Stage' extremely apt and reflects the level of thought put into it by
acclaimed novelist, Earl Lovelace.
The theme actually heralds the nearly thirty contingents which
will descend on our nation, and take it over, just for a little while,
from September 22-October 1. Caribbean countries will showcase
their skills from as close as Guyana and Barbados, to as distant as
Cayman Islands, Belize and Cuba.
It promises to be an exciting and enlightening two weeks; your
challenge is going to be, how do you choose?
How do you choose, when the Cubans are going to be bringing
their music, dance, visual arts, literary arts and films. Or when the
Bahamians start to break it up with their Junkanoo styleee? Worse
yet, when we are able to establish our affinity with the French and
the Creole as our family from Martinique and Guadeloupe start to
make style with their Creole Jazz Music, dance, singing and beautiful
costuming. And how you going to try and keep what little money
you have when you see the quality of craft from the Anguillans, the
Guyanese and the contingent from Belize? And who could resist when
the best soca, chutney, reggae, zouk and gospel artistes in the world
take the stage at the Super Concerts being put on by host T&T?
Plus, don't forget that the calypsonians across the region can't wait
to challenge our own Singing Sandra, reigning Carifesta Calypso
Monarch. And listen, everyday in the Scarborough Esplanade they

NORWICH (Reuters) Global
warming over the coming
century could mean a return
of temperatures last seen in
the age of the dinosaur and
lead to the extinction of up to
half of all species, a scientist
said on Thursday.
Not only will carbon diox-
ide levels be at the highest lev-

els for 24 million years, but glo-
bal average temperatures will be
higher than for up to 10 million
years, said Chris Thomas of the
University of York.
Between 10 and 99 per cent
of species will be faced with at-
mospheric conditions that last
existed before they evolved, and
as a result from 10-50 per cent
of them could disappear.
"We may very well already

be on the breaking edge of a
wave of mass extinctions," Tho-
mas told the annual meeting of

The Government of Guyana (GOG) has secured a Technical Assistance Grant from the
Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) to assist in financing consultancy services for the preparation of
a Strengthening Urban Management and Administration Programme (SUMAP) for four
communities which are to be upgraded to Townships. These are located in the Essequibo area of
Guyana viz Bartica, Charity, Parika and Supenaam. GOG, through the executing agency, the Ministry
of Local Government and Regional Development (MLGRD). invites the submission of qualification
information from consultants or joint ventures interested in providing consultancy services for the

The objectives of the consultancy are to enhance the institutional capacity of the four
municipalities to deliver urban services: to prepare the Neighborhood Democratic Councils. (NDC's)
to perform the responsibilities of urban management: and to install relevant systems and capacity
which will elevate the municipalities to the status of towns. The consultants will facilitate the
implementation of management, financial administration and budgeting systems: strengthen tax
collection and enforcement mechanisms and support the NDC's in developing and enhancing their
capacity to manage urban infrastructure including roads, drainage and sanitation systems

GOG now invites eligible consultants to submit statements ofcapability. In the assessment

warming taking

BABY TITANOSAURUS (L) and ankylosaurus replicas stand among trees inside the Cretacic
Park, built next to the Cal Orcko dinosaur track site at the FANCESA cement quarry in Sucre,
Bolivia, in this August 7, 2006 file photo. Global warming over the coming century could
mean a return of temperatures last seen in the age of the dinosaur and lead to the extinction
of up to half of all species, a scientist said on Thursday. (David Mercado/Reuters)

from burning fossil fuels for
transport and power.
"If the most extreme warm-
ing predicted takes place, we
will be going back to global tem-
peratures not seen since the age
of the dinosaur," Thomas said.
"We are starting to put
these things into a historical per-
spective. These are conditions
not seen for millions of years,
so none of the species will have
been subjected to them before,"
he added.
Thomas said scientific ob-
servations had already found
that as predicted by the cli-

mate models 80 per cent of
species had already begun mov-
ing their traditional territorial
ranges in response to the chang-
ing climatic conditions.
"That is an amazingly high
correlation. It is a clear signature
of climate change," he said.
Not only had the ani-
mals, birds and insects
started to react, but there was
evidence vegetation was also
on the move.
For example, climate-trig-
gered fungal pathogen outbreaks
had already led to the extinction
of more than one per cent of the

planet's amphibian species,
Thomas said.
Not only would some spe-
cies simply find no suitable
space to live anymore, but there
would be confrontations with
invasive species being forced to
move their territory. This would
produce not just wipe-outs, but
species' mixtures never seen be-
And the changes would all
happen at a faster rate than ever
before in evolution.
"In geological terms, 100
years is effectively instanta-
neous," Thomas noted.

Word for Today
The cuckoo shouts all day at nothing
In leafy dells alone;
And traveller's joy beguiles in autumn
Hearts that have lost their own.

Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries (A.E.
Housman 1859-1936)

The excerpt
He was an undersized little man, with a head too big
for his body a sickly little man. His nerves were bad.
He had skin trouble. It was agony for him to wear any-
thing next to his skin coarser than silk. He had delu-
sions of grandeur.
He was a monster of conceit. Never for one mo-
ment did he look at the world or at people, except in
relation to himself. He was not only the most impor-
tant person in the world, to himself; in his own eyes he
was the only person who existed. He believed himself
to be one of the greatest dramatists in the world, one
of the greatest thinkers, and one of the greatest com-
posers: To hear him talk, he was Shakespeare, and
Beethoven, and Plato, rolled into one. And you would
have had no difficulty in hearing him talk. He was one
of the most exhausting conversationalists that ever lived.
An evening with him was an evening spent in listening
S to a monologue. Sometimes he was brilliant; sometimes
She was maddeningly tiresome. But whether he was
being brilliant or dull, he had one sole topic cf conver-
sation: himself. What he thought and what he did.
He had a mania for being in the right. The-slightest
hint of disagreement from anyone, on the most trivial
point, was enough to set him off on a harangue that
might last for hours, in which he proved himself right in
many ways, and with such exhausting volubility, that in
the end his hearer, stunned and deafened, would agree
with him, for the sake of peace.
It never occurred to him that he and his doing were
not of the most intensive and fascinating interest to any-
one with whom he came into contact. He had theories
about almost every subject under the sun, including veg-
etarianism, the drama, politics, and music; and in sup-
port of these theories he wrote pamphlets, letters, and
books thousands upon thousands of words, hundreds
and hundreds of pages. He not only wrote these things,
and published them usually at somebody else's ex-
pense but he would sit and read them aloud, for hours
to his friends and his family. ....
What if he was faithless to his friends and to his
wives? He had one mistress to whom he was faithful
to the day of his death. Music. Not for a single mo-
ment did he ever compromise with what be believed,
with what he dreamed. There is not a line in his music
that could have been conceived by a little mind. Even
when he is dull, or downright bad, he is dull in the grand
manner. There is a greatness in his worst mistakes.
Listening to his music, one does not forgive him for
what he may or may not have been. It is not a matter
of forgiveness. It is a matter of being dumb with won-
der that his poor brain and body didn't burst under the
torment of the demon of creative energy that lived in-
side him, struggling, clawing, scratching to be released;
tearing shrieking at him to write the music that was in
him. The miracle is what he did in the little space of
seventy years could have been done at all, even by a
great genius. Is it any wonder that he had no time to
be a man?

About the excerpt
1. Read the extract twice over and understand the
drift of it. Suppose we tell you that the writer describes
a genius who refuses to be devoured by or to compro-
mise with society, would you be able to find support in
the extract? Yes? Well, why not write to a friend tell-

S Pa-"j 5 i 16.p65 1

ing him/her about "what is remarkable in this great man. 5. Insists upon the liability of sick watchmen.
Quote the words and phrases that have caught your at-
tention to his personality and behaviour. 6. Although they have never tried one of them.
2. This genius is Wagner. The author says in effect

that Wagner's contribution as an artist makes his short-
comings as a man relatively unimportant. Do you agree
or disagree? Why?

The Excerpt
The greatest ideas are the simplest.
Now there was something to be done. They worked
with passion. Piggy was so full of delight and expand-
ing liberty in Jack's departure, so full of pride in his con-
tribution to the good of society that he helped to fetch
wood. The wood he fetched was close at hand, a fallen
tree on the platform that they did not need for the as-
sembly; yet to the others the sanctity of the platform
had protected even what was useless there. Then the
twins realized they would have a fire near them as a
comfort in the night and this set a few littluns dancing
and clapping hands.
The wood was not so dry as the fuel they had used
on the mountain. Much of it was damply rotten and
full of insects that scurried; logs had to be lifted from
the soil with care or they crumbled into sodden pow-
der. More than this, in order to avoid going deep into
the forest the boys worked near at hand on any fallen
wood no matter how tangled with new growth. The
skirts of the forest and the scar were familiar, near the
conch and the shelters and sufficiently friendly in day-
light. What they might become in darkness nobody
cared to think. They worked therefore with great en-
ergy and cheerfulness, though as time crept by, there
was suggestion of panic in the energy and hysteria in
the cheerfulness. They built a pyramid of leaves and
twigs, branches and logs, on the bare sand by the plat-
form. For the first time on the island, Piggy himself re-
moved his one glass, knelt down and focused the sun
on tinder. Soon there was a ceiling of smoke and a bush
of yellow flame.
The littluns who had seen few fires since the first
catastrophe became wildly excited. They danced and
sang and there was a partyish air about the gathering.

1. Pretend that you were on a cruise and got left
behind with some other stragglers on a small island in
the Caribbean. Write a letter to a friend incorporating
some of the information found in the passage.

2. Pretend that you were the writer of the passage
and you were asked to let the littluns suggest activities
to keep them active and happy. Write your activities.

Personal Note: What have you mastered well in
your writing so far? Check and come up with a fair
answer, and then resolve to add more skills to improve
reader-interest. Remember that each passage used in
these columns is carefully chosen to broaden and im-
prove your experience.

Which of the following groups of words are sen-
tences? Which are fragments? Tell what is lacking in
each fragment. Make this an oral activity after you
have written it.

1. Shooting free throws and other shots from a
standing position.

2. Once they do their homework, they can play.

3. Prays by the hour in a cranny in his father's yard.

4. Open pastures protected under surveillance bet-
ter than fenced ones.

7. Short, fat women, especially a team of teen moth-
ers, drawing monthly child support.

8. In four years, averaging three a year, and prom-
ising to do better.

9. They were among the finalists.

10. Because they said they were sorry.

Fragments & Conversation
In conversation, fragments are often properly used
as answers. Here are some examples:
Where do you work?
At Patson's Dry Goods.

Are you happy in your work there?
Yes, very, very happy!

When do you plan to leave?
Not even today or tomorrow!

Something to do
Make up some fragments as answers of your own
questions in named situations. Show them to your study

The Passage
Read the following passage and then answer (a) and
(b): ,
It would be salutary, if difficult, to calculate the to-
tal expenditure on school and travel since the close of
the last century. The sum would be worth doing be-
cause it would raise the interesting question of how
much value we were getting for our money. Nothing
is easier, of course, than to pour scorn. For many chil-
dren the KAieteur Falls seems to be the most impres-
sive memory of their tour across Guyana's hinterland.
This might be held to set the cultural value of such trips
in a queer light. School heads again will be found to
say that the linguistic results of their tours are usually
negligible. Their usefulness, however, is almost certainly
of a different order. Travel is a pleasure and the imagi-
nation is quickened by novel scenes and circumstances.
If the tour has been carefully prepared during term, it
may even be educational in a direct sense.

taken from the above passage, and give for each an-
other word, or phrase, of similar meaning, which might

is grateful for the opportunity
to participate in this project
since the knowledge gained so
far has enabled his farm to be-
come more economically viable
and maintain soil fertility.
"NARI provides informa-
tion pertaining to modem tech-
nology which means farmers are
provided with greater opportu-
nity of ensuring economic vi-
ability through the application
of improved farming techniques

and supply of disease-free seed
and planting materials.
After several weeks of in-
teractive field visits, I have
learnt a different method of
fertilizer application. Ini-
tially, I used to prepare the

land then incorporate lime
stone and triple together
which we mix into the soil
then plant. However, the tech-
nique taught by NARI is the
application of limestone with
soil preparation. The applica-
tion of mixed fertilisers in-
corporated into the soil is
done at planting. In my view,
there will be lots of differ-
ences because the lime stone
will work faster because the
land will be limed long in ad-
vance and .vhen the plants
begin to throw its roots, will
be able to utilise the nutri-
ents provided.'

dramatic posters were placed on tall poster boards facing
east and west above Plaza's marquee. Briefly described, the
film concerns the sudden eruption of racial bigotry and
violence when Audrey Hepburn, part of a white pioneer family
comprised of two valiant brothers, Burt Lancaster and Audie
Murphy, is discovered to be not white at all but an Indian girl,
part of the Kiowa Tribe in the western wilderness where white
pioneer families reside. The girl was rescued as a child by
Lancaster's and Murphy's mother after her village was
destroyed by pioneers, and brought up to think she was the
blood relative of Lancaster and Murphy, who thought the same
as well. When the Native tribe discovers she is one of them,
they demand her return, but her "mother" does not reveal her
true racial identity, aad Lancaster, Murphy and their mother
defend her as one of them against the tribe's violent attacks
after they fail to secure her return through their custom of
barter. When Hepburn's true racial identity is finally revealed
by their dying mother, Lancaster and Murphy must face their
own racial obsession with wanting to be a family of one blood
and culture, with no desire to mix racially or socially with
other races and other cultures.
'The Unforgiven' revealed for Guyanese cinema audiences of
the early 60's. at the exact time when racial and social problems
were rising, several truthful problems which lay embedded in their
beliefs and attitudes. Problems which did not vanish with the
change from being a 'British Colony' to that of "Independent Na-
tion'. Problems that only a deep radical change in how they viewed
each other, could solve. Though the film could not prevent much
of the racial violence that occurred in that decade, it did have the
power to show individuals who paid attention to it, how absurd
many of man's racial obsessions were, and how they can only
save themselves, as individuals from such pitfalls. Individuals,
however, also make up groups, so individual change is not insig-
nificant. The brilliance of this film is that it refused to take sides.
by showing the Indians as bad and the whites as good. Both sides
are guilty of the same racial obsessions, based on claiming, or re-
claiming someone seen only as part of a racial and cultural group.
never as simply a free human being, able to adapt to new human
environments, and develop or grow according to the human love
and kindness it receives. So brilliant is this film that director John
Huston shows us one scene where even cultural expressions be-
come agents of war between the two racial foes, whites and Indi-
ans. When the Kiowa Indians begin to play their music as night

falls, Lancaster sees it as a threat, a form of magical witchcraft.
and orders his mother to play European music on the piano he
brought back as a gift from his travels to big cities. One-kind-of
music represents non-Western culture, the other Western culture.
and the two styles in their ethnic solitudes represent each race
and culture in a stagnant confrontation within the geographical
space they share. In today's modern cultures, however, such an
immature state of cultural confrontation has been succeeded by

cultural styles of music, such as Jazz, Rock, and all sorts of Pop,
which are a beautiful blend of old ethnic cultural styles, and this
new creative fusion is precisely what is meant by American, or
any form of "modern" culture, as opposed to other distinctly
mono-cultural traditions nurtured in isolation, which affected the
entire earth in its early stages of development.
This same cultural fusion of original cultural forms or
styles is visible in numerous films, literature, painting,
sculpture, fashion, etc. Those who consume or accept such
cultural styles, therefore participate as individuals or groups
in unifi d expressions of such national cultures that do not
encourage the persistence of social problems spawned by
origin ethnic diversity. A film such as 'The Unforgiven'
re gains one acutely relevant cinematic example of
immature, or stagnant social and cultural values, which in
multi-racial societies such as Guyana's can lead to endless
social conflicts, and the impossibility of ever creating a
national culture where such problems are largely defused
and resolved by the contribution of artists, and the Arts in

"Hrotect tne uzone Layer:

Save life on Earth".

Hello Readers,
THIS week we will look at
the first of two articles on In-
ternational Ozone Day. We
will try to understand what is
ozone, the ozone layer, how
is ozone good and bad, and
explore the chemistry behind
its depletion. Finally, we will
highlight planned activities
by the National Ozone Action
Unit (NOAU) which is the fo-
cal point for the Montreal
Protocol on substances that
deplete the Ozone Layer in
Guyana.- -
Do you know what Interna-
tional Ozone Day is?
September 16 is Interna-
tional Ozone Day. On Decem-
ber 19, 1994, the United Na-
tions General Assembly pro-
claimed September 16 the Inter-
national Day for the Preserva-
tion of the Ozone Layer, com-
memorating the date, in 1987,
on which the Montreal Proto-
col on Substances that Deplete
the Ozone Layer was signed.
States are invited to devote the
Day each year to promote, at
the national level, activities in
accordance with the objectives
of the Montreal Protocol and its

What is ozone?
Ozone is a gas comprised of
three atoms of oxygen (03) that
occurs both in the Earth's up-
per atmosphere and at ground
level. Ozone comes from the
Greek word 'ozein' meaning 'to
smell'. As a liquid, ozone is deep
blue; as a gas, it is pale blue and
smells like bleach because of the
chlorine. It is an extremely rare
gas that represents 3 out of ev-
ery 10 million molecules in the

What is the
ozone layer?
The ozone layer is a con-
centrated layer of oxygen found
10 to 50 km above the Earth's
surface which 'shields' the
planet from most of the harm-
ful ultraviolet B radiation.
Why is Ozone both Good
and Bad?
Ozone occurs in two layers
of the atmosphere. The layer
closest to the Earth's surface is
the troposphere. Here, ground-
level or "bad" ozone is an air
pollutant that is harmful to
breathe and it damages crops,
.trees and other vegetation. It is
a main ingredient of urban smog
The troposphere generally ex-
tends to a level about 6 miles up,
where it meets the second layer,
the stratosphere. The strato-
sphere or "good" ozone layer
extends upward from about 6 to
30 miles and protects life on
Earth from the sun's harmful ul-
traviolet (UV) rays.

What is
happening to
the "Good"
Ozone Layer?

Sin. the stratosphere. But this
.good" ozone is gradually being

destroyed by man-made chemi-
cals referred to as ozone-deplet-
ing substances (ODS), including
chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs),
(HCFCs), halons, methyl bro-
mide, carbon tetrachloride, and
methyl chloroform. These sub-
stances were formerly used and
sometimes still are used in cool-
ants, foaming agents, fire extin-
guishers, solvents, pesticides,
and aerosol propellants. Once
released into the air these ozone-
depleting substances degrade
very slowly. In fact, they can
remain intact for years as they
move through the troposphere
until they reach the strato-
sphere. There they are broken
down by the intensity of the
sun's UV rays and release chlo-
rine (Cl) and bromine molecules,
which destroy the "good" ozone.
Scientists estimate that one chlo-
rine atom can destroy 100,000
"good" ozone molecules. Can
you recall how many ozone
molecules are present in the at-

Let us look at
this closer.
Let us look at the jar as the
earth's atmosphere which has
oxygen, some ozone and other
In any chemical reaction,

the rate is controlled by the in-
tensity and wavelengths of UV
light (energy), air density, tem-
perature and pressure, and other
atoms that act as 'catalysts' to
accelerate or retard the reaction.
UV C is known to form
ozone and UV A&B known to

breakdown ozone. The most
important feature is that the
rate that uv-C is faster at pro-
ducing Ozone than uv-A&B
takes to destroy Ozone.
Consequently, our atmo-
sphere forms a layer of excess
ozone which absorbs uv- A&B
and protects the earth's organ-
isms from this harmful radia-

What happens when
chlorine (Cl) molecules are re-
leased into atmosphere?
Let us think of the lone
Cl atom as a 'parasite' look-
ing for a host. It clings onto
Ozone and steels and Oxy-

gen (0) atom. The new
highly reactive CIO molecule
now attaches itself to a free
O atom and releases the Cl
atom. Can you guess what
will happen next?
Chlorine in effect becomes
a 'stealer' of ozone. It doesn't


ARIES -- In the back of your mind, you've been considering something for
quite a while ... and today is the day to start introducing it to the world. Call
norr most tnrited friend and let them in on what you've been thinkinaabout.

SFind out their opinion and don't be disappointed if they don't jump up and
down for joy. You just need to flesh things out a little bit more before the
world premier. But it's important to get feedback right now. Respect the opin-
ions of others.

TAURUS -- It's time to get involved with something or someone new. So
put out your feelers and see what's going on today. Let people know you're
up for just about anything, and by the end of the day you should have a few
interesting invitations. Any issues you've had with your physical health or
lack of energy will begin to fade as your mind becomes active again ... so
challenge your conventional way of thinking. It will be good for your health.

b. 2.^

i9 (



GEMINI -- Soon you start to move into a more inward time, when reflecting
on where you want to go, what you want to do and whom you want to meet
feels too important to ignore. Before that mood overcomes you, use today to
get a lot of busywork out of the way. Run any errands, make those important
phone calls and organise your life so you have more flexible time for the up-
coming week. Prepare yourself for a quieter phase of thinking and contempla-

CANCER -- There are two sides of your inner self battling for territory today
... and you'll need to separate them as early as possible if you want a smooth,
harmonious day. Ironically, your aggressive and competitive side could be
holding you back right now, with its impatience and urge to dominate. Bal-
ance these urges with the side of yourself that values compromise, and try to
be more open to giving up some control. It's time to do what it takes to move

LEO -- There are some stressful areas of your life that you're choosing to
hold onto why? Today, if you can let go of the past, you'll finally be able to
move on. The thing that's holding you back could be an argument, a missed
opportunity or just an unpleasant blind date. Whatever it's, it's not the end
of you! And it certainly holds no great importance in the grand scheme of
your life, so why are you letting it have control over you? Kiss it good-bye!

VIRGO -- It may be time to reconsider that opportunity you thought was off
the table because today, all signs point to it being put back on the table
again. This time, it's going to be a lot more attractive of an option for you.
The right answer is not terribly clear, because either way seems equally posi-
tive. You have some people in your life who have opinions about what they
would do if they were in your shoes, but are you sure you want to know?

LIBRA -- Your experiences have taught you a lot about who you want to be,
and today someone else in your life could use this type of insight in their
own life. Of course, your path is not the same as theirs, but sharing your past
experiences with them might go a long way toward giving them a new per-
spective on their journey. A casual conversation with someone else might veer
into deep territory soon ... if it does, just go with it. Open up and divulge a
little of your history. They'll find it helpful.

SCORPIO -- Slow down today ... and if possible, move some of your errands
or meetings to another day. Any concerns you have about not meeting a dead-
line are unnecessary, so feel free to ease up on the gas (or even stop your
engine altogether!) over the coming days. You're right on track and have noth-
ing to worry about. A blast from the past offers a nice distraction their sto-
ries are just as amusing as ever, and if you push this person hard enough,
they'll let you in on a juicy little secret!

SAGITTARIUS -- If you're angry or frustrated with someone right now, giv-
ing them the silent treatment isn't going to do any good. If you want justice,
you have to speak up and let them know how you expect things to change.
Don't wait for them to approach you they're content with the way things
are right now, so there's no reason for them to rock the boat. It's up to you to
establish.communications and reopen the discussion. Shape the argument,
and don't give up until you hear the answers you need.

SCAPRICORN -- You're reaching a crossroads in your life, and the path you
should choose might not be terribly obvious right away. To help make your
decision, just think about which direction offers you the least amount of re-
sistance. Now is not the time to seek out conflict or challenges to your ideas,
no matter how much they might make you stronger. You deserve a break from
that type of energy ... you deserve the easier path, so feel free to take it.

AQUARIUS -- The progress you've been making in your life is impressive,
and a lot of powerful people have noticed. This might be the perfect time to
start pushing for more recognition (and compensation) at work. Get some face
time with the boss and remind them how valuable you are. Your actions could
have big.results,-so instead of waiting for people to approach you, now's the
time for you to approach them and ask for what you feel you deserve.

PISCES -- Feeling a bit of a time crunch right now? Organisation is the key
to handling everything you're dealing with today just like it usually is. To
find a solution, investigate a new method of managing your time ... and con-
S" itJhr investing in an electtibfi deyicethat cankeep you~omtop of things. No
--one-is-compl-ing,- yonre-nl~iy going to get busier'i 'the comifig'weeks.
Don't worry it will be a good busy but you'rewise to prepare.

need energy from uv-A&B any longer and produces more oxy-
gen than uv-C process to form Ozone.

Now with little or no ozone our atmosphere allows harmful
uv-A&B to reach the earth's surface.

A simplified description of the process is shown below.

CI +03 C:0
CI + 03 CIO + O0

The good news is that the natural ozone production process
.'can heal itself. The bad news is that global warming which is as a
result of the greenhouse effect may actually be creating the ideal
Environment for ozone depletion.

The take-home message is that every process within the envi-
Sroninent is inter-dependent. We must consider these facts as we
plan for development which can be sustainable and is sustained.

Next week we will continue.our discussion on Ozone, and In-
.. temational Ozone Day.

Please note that the National Ozone Action Unit (NOAU), as
the focal point for the Montreal Protocol on substances that de-
plete the Ozone Layer in Guyana will be observing their 19th an-
niversary of the implementation of this international treaty on Sep-
tefiber 16, 2006.

NOAU's calendar of events will include a discussion on Tues-
day September 12, 2006 on the Guyana Today Show highlighting
: the issue of ozone depletion in Guyana and the rest of the world.

As part of raising awareness in Guyana, on the issues of ozone
depletion, the"NOAU had launched a National Ozone Poster Com-
petition in June under the' theme 'Act Ozone Friendly Stay Sun
Safe' for school children 10 to 16 years of age. Posters will be on
public display in the Botanic Gardens on World Ozone Day Sep-
tember 16, 2006'.

the face of dramatic shifts in the weather, a climate scien-
tist said on Thursday.
Flying in the face of accepted then that settled societies
emerged trom the development of static farming in good cli-
niimn conditions ihat produced food surpluses and allowed
spec iaisjton. Nick Brooks said the opposite was ruie.
'Ci ilisation did not arise as the result of a benign en% iron-
ment which allowed humanmt to indulge a preference for living
in complex, urban civilised socieues." he told the annual meet-
ing of the British Association for the Advancement bf Science.
"On the contrary, \hat we tend to think of ioda\ as
civilisation was an accidental by-product of unplanned adapta-
tion to catastrophic climate change. Ci ilisation was a last re-
sort," he added.
Brooks said he based his theory on close' observaio'n of
archaeological remains of the Garamantian civilisation in the
Fezzan region of south-western Lib)a allied with evidence of
changing rainfall patterns 3,000-5,000 years ago.
But he said the pattern could also be found'in societies as
diverse as South Asia. South America and China.
As the climate became steadily drier formerly nomadic
people were forced to come together for mutual, support and
to eke out the dwindling natural resources.
But not all of the consequences of this merging movement
were beneficial social inequality arose as did organised vio-
lence, there was no increase in life expectancy and autocratic
governments emerged, Brooks'said. ...., -
When climate conditions improved again there was no re-
turn to the former order. . l ;.
"Once the cat is out of the bag, it doesiit go back.' Yu.
can't uninvent technology," Brooks said. .;'
And he warned against drawing comparisons with the
global warming that is predicted to raise average tempera- ;
tures.by around three degrees this century. noting that the
temperature rise was well' above that which forced the so-
cietal change 5,000 years ago
