Toddler on wanted list
DUBAI, (Reuters) A two-year-old boy was briefly
banned from boarding a Turkey-bound flight in the
United Arab Emirates after his name appeared on a list
of wanted suspects, a newspaper reported yesterday.
Emirates Today said the boy's passport details, in-
cluding the date of birth, matched those in an arrest
warrant. The reason for the mix-up was not known.

"While going through the passport checking procedures to get
on board, one of the officers on duty said they wanted to take
Suhail," Emirates Today quoted the boy's father, Abdullah Mohamed
Saleh, as saying.
"I thought he was kidding me and said 'Take him if you want',"
he said. "He showed me a print-out of a document that said Suhail
was wanted and there was an arrest warrant for him."
Officials said they would investigate the incident, the pa-
per reported.

In addition, from tomorrow

'Great deception' upsets PPP

THE People's Progressive
Party (PPP) is upset at what
it calls a "great deception" by
the main opposition People's
National Congress Reform
(PNCR) on an agreement for
the chairmanship of the Re-
gional Democratic Council
(RDC) of Region Seven
Mr Donald Ramotar, Gen-
eral Secretary of the main part-
ner in the governing PPP/Civic
(PPP/C) alliance yesterday ac-
cused the PNCR of not
honouring an understanding for
the elections last week for the
top spots in the RDCs of Re-
gion Seven and Eight (Potaro/
He told a news conference
at the PPP Freedom House head-
quarters in Georgetown that in
keeping with the party's strat-
egy of building trust towards
forging greater understanding
and coherence among political
parties, the PPP and PNCR dis-
cussed several issues over the
past few weeks.
"The parties reached an un-
derstanding on how we should
work and cooperate in all the re-
gions, but more particularly in
Regions Four (Demerara/
Mahaica), Seven and Eight",
Ramotar said, adding that in
these regions, no party had a
majority in the August 28 gen-
eral and regional elections.
He said that in Region Four
the PNCR-1G has a plurality,
obtaining 16 seats to the PPP/
C 15, the Alliance For Change
(AFC) three and the Justice For
All Party (JFAP) one.
In Region Seven. Ramotar
said, the distribution was -
PPP/C six seats, PNCR-IG
five, Guyana Action Party-Rise
Organise and Rebuild (GAP-
ROAR) two and AFC two.
He said that in Region
Eight, the PPP/C got five seats,
the PNCR-IG three, the AFC
two and The United Force
(TUF) two.

According to the PPP Gen-
eral Secretary, in the discussions
between the PPP and PNCR it
was agreed that whichever party
had the most seats would be
supported by the other for the
Chairperson of the region, while
the other party would be sup-
ported for the position of Vice-
"The PPP kept its side of
the agreement in full measure",
he said, but in regions Seven
and Eight "the process varied
considerably from what we had
In Region Seven the mem-
bers of the PNCR-IG nomi-
nated their own councillor for
the position of Chairperson and
together with the AFC and
GAP-ROAR councillors voted
against the PPP/C's nominee, he
Ramotar claimed they also
nominated and voted for the
GAP-ROAR candidate for Vice-
Chairperson, adding that this
was "contrary to our agree-
"That this was carefully
planned was seen from the fact
that the GAP-ROAR Vice-
Chairperson. Ms Thomas had a
prepared speech which she pro-
ceeded to deliver after the great
deception", he contended.
According to Ramotar, in
Region Eight, the PNCR-IG
was nominated and accepted the
nomination for the Chairman-
ship of the region by the AFC.
"This was again a violation
of our agreement. However, in
this case the PNCR-IG candi-
date lost that elections and Mr
Senor Belle of the PPP/C won".
he said.

lated, the PPP/C councillors
continued to honour the coim-
mitment and supported the
PNCR candidate for Vice-Chair-
man in Region Eight and for the
Chairmanship of Region Four.
"The PPP is very disap-
pointed at what transpired in
Regions Seven and Eight. The
positions taken by the other
parties in those regions, particu-
larly by the PNCR-IG council-
lors, only serve to undermine
the trust and understanding that
we in the PPP have been
labouring so hard to build", he
He told reporters the PPP
feels the PNCR leadership
should demand the resignation
of the Chairman of Region
Seven so that the will of the ma-
jority of the electorate of that
region could be respected.
The PNCR. at a news con-
ference Thursday, said it was
evident that the results of the
regional elections provided an
opportunity for the commence-
ment of meaningful discussions
with the PPP/C and other po-
litical parties and the persons
identified to initiate those dis-
cussions outlined the views of
the PNCR to the parties con-
It claimed that based on the
results of initial consultations its
members have had with those
parties, the PNCR and the PPP/
C have continued discussions

on issues related to the promo-
tion of local democracy, particu-
larly as it related to the func-
tioning of the Regional Demo-
cratic Councils.
The PNCR said basic un-
derstandings with respect to the
councils were arrived at and the
parties agreed to continue to
work towards agreement on sev-
eral related issues.
Among the matters being
discussed, according to the
PNCR, are the uniform treat-
ment of all regions; allocation of

resources for projects identified
by the Regional Democratic
Councils; land distribution is-
sues in the regions; selection and
reporting relationships of Re-
gional Executive Officers and
the RDCs; implementation of
D&I projects in the regions; re-
muneration for Regional Coun-
cillors; facilities for Chairmen,
Vice-Chairmen and Councillors
of RDCs to carry out their re-
sponsibilities; specific budget-
ary allocation for agriculture to
each region and managed by the

RDC; and regional budgetary al-
location for youth, sports and
culture to be managed by the
The PNCR also said out-
standing local government
reform issues, including a
model for the local govern-
ment electoral system; for-
mula for fiscal transfers; cre-
ation of the Local Govern-
ment Commission; and the
treatment of regional devel-
opment plans are other mat-
ters being discussed.

PPP congratulates Lula on victory

THE People's Progressive
Party (PPP) has congratu-
lated President Ignacio Lula
Da Silva on his resounding
re-election by the people of
Brazil for a second term.
The PPP yesterday said it
noted the innovative and, in
many ways, defiant progranune
of Lula to combat poverty and
to introduce progressive changes
in Brazil, and hopes that his re-
newed mandate would afford
him the opportunity of acceler-
ating that programme.
"Like the Workers Party of
President Lula. the PPP has se-
cured its fourth consecutive
victory on August 28 last in free
and fair elections. Both the
Workers Party and the PPP have

Israel kills seven in Gaza,

briefly eases grip on town

By Nidal al-Mughrabi

GAZA, (Reuters) An Israeli
sniper shot dead a 12-year-
old Palestinian girl in Gaza
yesterday and six others, in-
cluding four militants, were
killed in air strikes and
clashes, Palestinian sources
Israeli troops briefly eased
their grip on the northern town
of Beit Hanoun. but as darkness
fell soldiers began house-to-
house searches for militants, lo-
cal residents said.
The 12-year-old girl was
killed by a single bullet to the
head. local hospital workers
An Israeli army spokesman
said a sniper had spotted an
armed militant and had fired at
him but that apparently the girl
was killed as the armed man got
out of the line of fire.
He said the army would in-
vestigate the matter.
One of the gunmen was
killed in battles with Israeli sol-
diers backed by tanks near Beit
Hanoun.- home to some 30.000
Palestinians, witnesses said.
Militants fired anti-tank rockets
at troops, they added. One sol-
dier was seriously wounded, the
army said.
The violence came a day af-
ter Israel killed 17 people, about
half of them civilians, including
two women acting as human
shields between troops and gun-
men hiding in a mosque in Beit
Hanoun. Israel's army said it
only fired at armed Palestinians.
Israel says the operation.
one of the biggest since the army
and Jewish settlers pulled out of
Gaza last year after 38 years of

occupation, aims to halt rocket
fire at the Jewish state.

hopes of any resumption of

The Beil Ilanoun operation
is part of a broader offensive
launched in late June following
the abduction of an Israeli sol-

Children of Nazi



meet in Germany
By Matthias Strauss

WERNIGERODE, Germany, (Reuters) The children of a
Nazi programme aimed at creating an "Aryan elite" met
publicly in Germany yesterday in an effort to banish the
spectre that has haunted many of them since their birth.
The 'Lebensborn' or 'font of life' project comprised a se-
ries of homes launched by Heinrich Himmler's SS that were to
provide the stock to help run a Nazi empire. The homes were
popularised later as stud farms for a blond-haired, blue-eyed
master race.
Matthias Meissncr, managing director of Lebcnsspuren
('traces of life'). a group representing the Lebensborn children,
said the meeting was necessary to bring the homes out in the
open and lay some of the myths about them to rest.
"The aim was to take the children out into the open,
to encourage those affected to find out their origins but
also to show the outside world that the cliche of the stud
farm with blond-haired, blue-eyed parents is not correct,"
he said.
Many children from the Lebensborn homes, particularly in
Norway which was seen as the home to the most Aryan stock
- were socially ostracised after the war and they have remained
a sensitive topic that is seldom discussed in Germany.
One of around 35 former children present at the first
wholly public meeting in Wernigerode, a small town in eastern
Germany which once had a Lebensborn home. was 63-year-old
Hans Ulrich Wesch.
With tears in his eyes. Wesch explained how he was raised
in communist eastern Germany after the war and separated from
his mother and sisters. He would not see them again for half a
The centres were launched around Gernany from 1936 to
boost the birth rate. particularly of SS members, and to take
care of illegitimate children deemed to be of healthy "Aryan"
Contemporary authorities, like the German Historical Mu-
seum, agree that no evidence has been found that the homes
functioned as human stud farms used to breed "Nordic super-
However, the SS carefully vetted those who entered they
initially had to prove they were of German descent, and had
no hereditary illnesses going back two generations, said
During World War Two. the Nazis set up homes in oc-
cupied territories like France. Belgium and especially
Norway, to look after local women expecting children from
German soldiers.
"What the SS wanted was people who were resilient, duti-
ful and disciplined. The kind of people who would be suited to
run things in the new occupied areas." said Meissner.
Most estimates suggest that roughly 8.000 Lebensborn chil-
dren were born in Germany, with up to 12,000 in Norway.
Meissner said that while many of those in Norway were
"outed" straight away after the war, many German Lebensborn
children did not know about their origins until years later.
"On the one hand you had the issue of SS association
- was father a war criminal?" he said. "Then you had the
question of illegitimacy in the old West Germany. And in
the communist East, it was even more of a problem, be-
cause of the taint of fascism."

Cuba military

readies for Castro,

revolution parade

By Jeff Franks and Rosa Tania Valdes

HAVANA, (Reuters) Troops marched in the streets and
fighter jets streaked across the skies of Havana yesterday
rehearsing a December 2 celebration of the 50th anniver-
sary of the start of the Cuban revolution and the 80th birth-
day of its leader. Fidel Castro.
The military parade next month will be the first in a decade
in the Cuban capital and may bring Castro's first public ap-
pearance since he had intestinal surgery in July that forced him
to cede power temporarily to his brother Raul.
The highlight of the rehearsal was the rolling out of a full
replica of the yacht Granma that brought l ideal Castro and his
small band of revolutionaries from Mexico to stalt tlhen I'iglt
against dictator FIulgencio Batista.
The revolutionaries landIed on )Dcember 2. I'95( in south-
eastern Cuba and three years later toppled the B13atista govern-

But the rehearsal included the reading of a script over booim-
ing loudspeakers that contained several references to "our un-
defeated and invincible comminandante l'idel Castro Ru.." giving
no indication he would not show up.
Castro turned 80 on August 13 but his birthday celebration
was postponed due to the surgery, the cause of which has never
been fully disclosed.
He walked haltingly in a video shown last month and looked
unhealthy but insisted he was still involved in governing the
communist island that. until his surgery. lie ran without inter-
ruption after taking power in 1959.

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE November 5, 2006

Editorial )


AGAINST the backdrop of what came to be known as
the sensational 'tapegate' controversy, former Commis-
sioner of the Guyana Police Force, Winston Felix, went
on pre-retirement leave in July, ahead of the August 28
general elections. Felix's leave ended last month and
we wish him well in his retirement.
The focus now is on the appointment of a new Com-
missioner of the more than 3,500-strong GPF. An obvi-
ous choice is the candidate currently acting in that post,
Mr. Henry Greene. A very experienced officer of the GPF,
he had previously acted as Commissioner during Felix's
tenure, whenever this became necessary.
Whether one likes or dislikes the acting Commis-
sioner, whatever the reason personal, political or pro-
fessionally-related it would be neither fair nor honest
to ignore the anti-crime offensive that has gained mo-
mentum under his relatively short watch as head of the
There remains so much yet to be done in combating
the challenges posed by the armed criminal gangs. But
the successes achieved over recent months would have
involved shared cooperation and commitment by other

high-ranking officers in command of various divisions
and operations. Their collective efforts must be com-
However, with the impending appointment of a new
Commissioner, detractors of Mr. Greene have already
started to wave their little red flags with all the prejudices
they could muster, with hopes of frustrating his confirma-
Not surprisingly, one such 'flag' carries what could
be viewed as a "disapproval" stamp from U.S. authori-
ties over unsubstantiated allegations that he may have
"benefited materially" from drug trafficking.
The Guyana Government had requested evidence to
substantiate this serious charge. Evidently, the U.S.
sources of the allegation are yet to produce the facts
The allegation, strongly denied by Greene, was un-
officially linked to the sudden revocation of his U.S. visa,
a development which itself should perhaps be subjected
to independent review to ascertain whether there has
been an abuse of process involving local and foreign
It would be recalled that revocation of Greene's U.S.
visitor's visa had come on the eve of his acting appoint-
ment as Commissioner. Trial by allegations has evolved,
most regrettably, as a sickness of this nation's political
culture. Victims include Guyanese of all sectors and
walks of life, among them leading political and business
leaders and members of the legal profession.
Therefore, decision-makers across the political divide
should, in the interest of justice and good governance.
resist temptations to give this sickness permanence.
If observations by Head of the Presidential Secre-
tariat, Dr Roger Luncheon, at last week's media briefing
offer a guide, the Jagdeo administration appears quite

willing for Greene to be confirmed as Police Commis-
As reported in yesterday's Chronicle, when he was
asked whether Greene will be appointed Commissioner
of Police, Luncheon's quick response was: "To be hon-
est, the likelihood of somebody else is a bit remote...
can't imagine going to find somebody else when the act-
ing Commissioner has performed creditably..."
For such an endorsement to be effective in Greene's
favour, the cooperation of parliamentary Opposition
Leader, Robert Corbin, would also be required in the
consultative process with President Bharrat Jagdeo.
In the current atmosphere of anxieties over the crimi-
nal rampage and threats posed to the national fabric by
gangs armed with very sophisticated weapons, a repeat
of the long period it took in the case of confirmation of
Winston Felix as Police Commissioner should be

THE SIGNING last week in
Port-of-Spain of a Memoran-
dum of Intent (MOI) between
the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security (HDS)
and the Caribbean Commu-
nity to provide advanced data
on passengers travelling to
the USA, has raised concerns
about our
governments' preparedness
to ensure protection of civil
liberties in this mutual
cooperation initiative ahead
of Cricket World Cup 2007.
Attention is already being
drawn to ajudgement of the Eu-
ropean Court of Justice, as well
as criticisms by parliamentar-
ians and human rights advocates
of the European Union that
have resulted in changes to the
original EU/USA agreement on
transferring of 'Passenger Name
Record' (PNR) data by airlines
to the US administration.
A revised but interim agree-
ment on the PNR data, signed
between the EU and U.S., was
adopted by the EU Council last

Prime Minister Patrick
month, (on October 16). But
some European MPs and oth-
ers continue to express con-
cerns about how the PNR data
could be abused by
U.S. authorities, including its in-
telligeqce arms,, to the detriment

Page 6 & 23 p65

of the civil liberties without
Not surprisingly, within
CARICOM, questions have be-
gun to be raised. even among a
few cabinet ministers and senior
officials, about ownership of
passengers' data to be made
available to the USA. as well as
the issue of reciprocity in ac-
cess to data bases within the
c I a i med frame work
of "combating terrorism".
Following the signing on
October 26 of the MOI by U.S.
Homeland Security Secretary
Michael Chertoff and Prime
Minister Patrick Manning of
Trinidad and Tobago on behalf
of CARICOM, concerns have
been expressed whether this in-
formation-sharing agreement
may end up revealing a lack of
advanced preparation similar to
that of stakeholders of the
region's vital tourism sector that
has left them howling over the
recent amendment to the West-
ern Hemisphere Travel Initia-
tive (WHTI).
As approved by the U.S.
Congress, the amended
WHTI facilitates American
cruise line passengers to this re-
gion to he in passport-readiness
by June 2009 on returning home
from the Caribbean, while U.S.
citizens travelling by air m lust be
in possession of a valid pass-
port from as early as January 8S
next year.
U.S.-hased watchers of Car-
ibbean economic and political
developments have pointed to
the absence of any effective
CARICOM lobbying mecha-
nism in Washington to sensitise
the George Bush administration
and the U.S. Congress to press-
ing issues of regional importance
- such as the discriminatory
WHTI amendment.
There is a feeling
that neither ad hoc meetings of
the CARICOM group of Wash-
ington-based ambassadors. nor

the occasional, and niorlmanll
brief encounters at ministerial
level could be a substitute for
coordinated, sustained and cost-
sharing lobbying by this region
of comparatively small and vul-
nerable economies struggling in
a highly competitive environ-
ment for survival as America's
so-called 'third- border

Views differ over the
extent and sustainability of ef-
forts at ministerial level, in co-
ordination with the Caribbean
Tourism Organisation and the
Caribbean Hotels Association,
to achieve a unified application
in the new U.S. passport policy

for American citizens.
But with last week's
signing in Porl-of-Spain of thce
MOI. there has noiw emlergcd the
new concern of likely civil lib-
erties abuses resulting from the
misuse of advanced records of
passengers shared with the
USA, as requested by its I Ionic-
land Security I)epartmient.
The rationale for lthe MOI
on passengers' record, signed by
the USA Chcrloff and for
CARICOM who has lead re-
sponsibility on nmatlers of re-
gional crime and security, is the
level of cooperation required to
ensure a safe and secured envi-
ronment for tie hosting in nine
Community states next year of
Cricket World Cup.

Prime NMinister Manning
was to explain, for the benefit
of the media, that CARICOMI
governments could not have en-
Sisaged the horrendous 9/11 ter-
rorist strikes against the USA
and other subsequent bombing
tragedies when theI decision was
taken to host C\VC 2007.
Cooperation with the IUSA.
United Kingdomn and other
friendly states to combat terror-
isin and cross-border crimes in
general, ahead of CWC 2007. is
to be welcomed.
However, the cooperation
envisaged by the MOI signed
by Manning and Chertoff goes
beyond next year's historic
cricket tournament. In fact, in
view of the EU/U.S. accord on
sharing of information on pas-
sengers' record, it may well
have been a demand by the
Bush administration to have this
kind of "cooperation" even
without CWC 207.
Some of the region's con-
cerns reflect, in part, those that
led to a review of the original
EU-USA passenger record data
and resulting in last month's
adoption by the Council of the
EU of an 'interim agreement'.
Question is whether suffi-
cient care has been taken by\
CARICOM to protect civil lib-
erlies in the arrangements to
provide passengers" data to lhe
USA, the superpower where
there are increasing apprehen-
sion over human rights viola-
tions in a virtual paranoid :1ato-
sphere, generated bs thile Bush
adm illisratlionl's "\v\:r on tl I' or--

Of ilnmediate interest is

MOI and likely expansion
of provisions on information-
sharing arrangements between
"Uncle Salm" and CARICOM -

are fed into powerful data bases
of the USA, unknown to indi-
viduals travelling to the
USA who. shockingly find
themselves subjected to ques-

tionable interrogation proce-
dures and held incommunicado?
This is not as far-fetched as
it may appear. Those in
power would know from re-
ported cases of individuals who,
in our post-9/1 1 world. have

U.S. Homeland Security
Secretary Michael Chertoff
been humiliated and/or \\wrnig-
fully punished as "suspects af-
ter landing at airports, to satisfy
tie "aliti-terrorism"i agenda of
the powerful'?
The UISA under the Bush
administration which does not
recognize the jurisdiction of the
International Criminal Court -
has a set of draconian laws and

mechanisms. created within an
anti-terrorism framework that
includes denial of the right to
habeas corpus.
In our justice system, law-
yers can file habeas corpus pe-
titions to have access to their
clients to ensure a free and fair
trial. whatever the allegations/
charges. In Bush's post-9/1l

America, non-U.S. citizens are
easily debarred from access to
lawyers for the filing of habeas
corpus petitions.
History is replete with ex-
amples of how, in the name of
"national security". fundamen-
tal rights of citizens, around the
world, have been violated. Eu-
ropean parliamentarians are
among those who have raised
questions about agencies of the
USA, other than llhe Homeland
Security Department, having ac-
cess to passengers information,
ne\ er intended for them.
We havl had illuch focus
on the mandatory compre-
liensi\e 'Sunset Legislation'

that it is the declared inten-
tion of our CARICOM gov-
cienllents toi ha\ e the Mello-
randulm signed by Cherloftl
and Manning to have parlia-
nmentary endorsement in tilhe
interest of all concerned.

tial features of that MOI in
the interest of safeguarding
individual rights and the best
interest of our Caribbean

Lawyers operating at the Supreme Court have also been
asked to put up some money to tidy that area, but Mr Green said
he would have to wait and see if they will deliver. (We all wish him
the best of luck.)
According to the Georgetown Mayor, the municipality is
working with the Government to ensure that measures taken to beau-
tify the city for CWC are sustainable and not just as a one-off.
He said the biggest problems facing the City Council are
the large pile-up of garbage around the city, and vagrants.

(The writer is a business executive and former Caribbean
diplomat who publishes widely on the Caribbean in the
international community)

MUCH of the Caribbean and Florida in the United States,
which usually bear the brunt of Atlantic hurricanes, escaped
the 2006 season unscathed after years of brutal battering by
intense storms.
But, there is no treason for complacency.
A report, commissioned by the British government, from former
World Bank Chief Economist, Sir Nicholas Stern, has re-enforced
the dire prospects for the world including small islands in the Car-
ibbean and mainland countries with low-lying coasts such as Guyana
and Belize.
Sir Nicholas has warned that the human consequences of fail-
ing to act to stop global warming will be serious.
The report says: "Millions will die from malnutrition, diarrhoea,
malaria and dengue fever unless effective controls are There
will be acute risks all over the world from the Inuits in the Arctic
to the inhabitants of small islands in the Caribbean and Pacific".
Sir Nicholas is a hard-nosed Economist, not an Environmental-
ist. Therefore, there is no reason for suspecting a hidden agenda in
his warning that the world is in danger.
The 600 page report is quite a tome and it makes depressing
reading for the future of the world if temperatures continue to rise.
Among the troubling projections are:
200 million people are at risk of being driven from their homes
by flood or drought by 2050
60 million Africans could be exposed to Malaria if world tem-
peratures rise by 2C
4 billion people could suffer from water shortages if tem-
peratures rise by 2C
If nothing is done about global warming the world economy
would shrink by up to 20 per cent, equating to a figure of almost
US$2 trillion a year. Developing countries would, of course, be hard-
est hit with poverty increasing, disease spreading, trade worsening
and hundreds of millions of people dying.
However, Sir Nicholas points out that spending of just one per
cent of GDP per year, the equivalent of roughly US$90 billion an-
nually in an international effort could stabilise carbon emissions at
550 parts per million.

The importance of stabilizing the emissions is that once carbon
dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere it stays there and continues
to warm the planet for as long as a century. Thus, everyday that
the emissions increase global
warming is intensified and pro-
The report tells the C,trib-
bean nothing new when it says
that rising sea levels will pose
serious risks and demand in- i
creasing coastal protection.
But. it makes the point that, in
addition to snall islands.
coastal cities such ias New York
and Miami in the U.S.,
Mumbai and Calcutta in India,
London in the UK and Honk
Kong and Shanghai in China
would also be flooded.
In the Caribbean, fish '
stocks would also be badly
affected by Ocean acidifica-
tion, a direct result of rising
carbon dioxide levels. In turn this will not only affect the live-
lihood of fishermen, it will also cut the food supply of people

Dr Ulric Trotz, chief science adviser for the Caribbean Cotm-

The U.S. emits more than 25 percent of the greenhouses gases

underway in China and India. By comparison, the Caribbean coun-

Thinking like a terrorist

WHAT are they thinking, those terrorists who hate America's
values, as the United States prepares to vote in the mid-term
Congressional elections? Do they think that a terrorist bomb
somewhere in the United States in the next few days would
drive Americans back into President Bush's arms, or discredit
his strategies further? And which result would they prefer:
do they want the Republicans to lose control of Congress or
To discuss these questions sensibly, you must first accept that
terrorists are not just hate-filled crazies. They are people with po-
litical goals and rational (though vicious) strategies for achieving
them. Military officers and intelligence experts know this they
even study the strategy and tactics of terrorism in the staff col-
leges but it is not often recognized in the public debate. So lay
your prejudices aside for a moment, and try to think like a terror-
Happily, a document has come into my hands that will help us
to figure out their strategy. True, it reads like a script written for
an amateur dramatic society, but it comes from one of the Western
intelligence agencies that certified the existence of weapons of mass
destruction in
Iraq, so there can be little doubt about its authenticity. I have
taken the liberty of translating it into English.
A heavily guarded compound in Waziristan. Three bearded men
in robes enter the courtyard.
Osama bin Laden (for it is he): So do we blow something up in
America before the election this time, or not? We skipped 2002 and
2004. Surely it wouldn't hurt to do something this time.
First Henchman: Well, I don't know, boss. Not blowing more
stuff up in America has worked for us so far. Bush got the credit
for keeping the terrorists away, and that gave him the freedom to
invade Iraq, and so the Americans never put enough troops into
Afghanistan, and now they're losing both wars. 1 say leave him

alone. It's coming along just fine.

Second Henchman: Besides, we don't really have....
OBL (interrupting): I bought that argument in 2002, and I bought
it again in 2004, but now it's different. Bush will be in power until
2008 no matter how Americans vote, so the U.S. soldiers will still
be pinned down in Iraq until then anyway. He's not going to pull
them out. And he's not going to
send a lot more troops to Afghani-
stan, either, no matter who con-
Strols Congress, so our Taliban
friends will be all right. We have
nothing to lose. Let's blow some-
thing up. It will humiliate the
Americans and make us look good.

l Second Henchman: That's all
very well, but...

is right. It can't hurt now. Acti-
vate the sleeper cells in

Second Henchman: Will you
stop talking and listen for a
minute! We don't have any sleeper
cells in America. We never did. We
had to bring the 9/11 guys in from abroad. and they're all dead.
This whole discussion is pointless, and furthennore... IAt this point
the transcript ends]
On second thought. I do wonder if this document is entirely

genuine. There's something about the style that doesn't sound quite
But the logic is exactly right: this is how terrorists think.
The 9/11 attacks on the United States were meant to pro-
voke an Amterican military response. The point was to lure
Washington into invading Afghanistan (where Bin Laden's
bases were), so that they would become trapped in another long
guerrilla war like the one he and his colleagues had waged
(with U.S. support) against the Soviet invaders of Afghanistan
in the 1980s. The images from such a war, of high-tech Ameri-
can forces smashing Afghan villages and families, would re-
verberate across the Muslim world and radicalise so many
people that the Islamist revolutions Bin Laden dreamed of
would at last become possible.
George W. Bush dodged that bullet by overthrowing the Taliban
regime without causing vast destruction in Afghanistan (it was done
almost entirely by American special forces and their local allies),
so there was no guerrilla war there at first. Bin Laden's gamble had
failed. Butthen Bush invaded Iraq, providing Arab extremists with
the guerrilla war they wanted and images of horror in profusion.
He even abandoned most of the effort to rebuild Afghanistan in
order to concentrate on Iraq, so the Taliban got the chance to re-
cover there too.
That's where we are now, and Osama Bin Laden really has not
the least incentive to try to discredit President Bush with the
American electorate by carrying out further terrorist attacks. The
project is on track, and the Americans will be largely gone from the
Middle East in a few years anyway.
And besides, there are no sleeper cells in America. There never

And with far higher church
attendance rates in the United
States than in other parts of the
rich industrialized world, church
stances on the war, as on other
issues, loom large in politics.
Among mainstream Protes-

tant denominations, leaders of
the United Methodist Church
have been vocal in their criticism
of Iraq.
"As general secretary of the
United Methodist General
Board of Church & Society, 1
have continued to speak against
the war in Iraq," said Jim
Winkler, who also heads the
church's social justice and pub-
lic policy wing.
"It is my opinion that reli-
gious-based antiwar activities
have been essential to turning
the tide of opinion in the United
States against the stupid and ill-
conceived invasion of Iraq," he
told Reuters by e-mail.
Many African-American
churches have also come out in
opposition to the war, and the
message is heard loudly in
countless services every Sun-
"I think that the contempt
of many of the churches regard-

ing the conflict is because there
were no weapons of mass de-
struction discovered," said Pas-
tor Robert Earl Houston Sr. of
the Westwood Baptist Church
in Nashville. Tennessee.
"And I think that after 9)/11
we went after the wrong
people," he told Reuters by tele-
phone, referring to the Sept. 11
attacks, and to the
administration's pre-war stance
that Iraq possessed weapons of
mass destruction.
Black church opposition
may also have roots in the
high exposure of African-
American families and com-
munities to the war. African-
Americans make up about 13
per cent of the U.S. popula-
tion, but according to the U.S.
Defence Department, they
account for around 18 per
cent of military personnel.
Pacifism runs deep in other
U.S. churches, such as the Quak-

ers, Mennonites and

On the other side of the di-
vide are the largely white evan-

been a bedrock of support for

S Evangelicals also are reeling
from a scandal alter Ted Haggard

tional Association of
Evangelicals and admitted on
Friday that he bought the drug
methamnphetamine and sought a
massage from a gay male pros-
titute. He denied using the drug
or having sex with the man.
Many conservative evangeli-
cal Christians view the Iraq
conflict as it is presented by the
administration as an essential
part of the war on terrorism de-
clared by Washington after the
Sept. 11 attacks.
"If people see we are tak-

ing the war to the terrorists in-
stead of fighting it on U.S. soil,
then there is more support for
it (among social conserva-
tives)," Tony Perkins. president
of the Family Research Coun-
cil. a conservative lobby group
with strong evangelical ties, told
Other conservative Chris-
tians go far beyond the admin-
istration view. with a stance
that sees the Iraq war and war
on terrorism as part of a "clash
of civilisations" or unfolding
Biblical prophecy.
"The present day events
in the Holy Land may very
well serve as a prelude or
forerunner to the future
Battle of Armageddon and the
glorious return of Jesus
Christ," Jerry Falwell, head
of the Moral Majority Coali-
tion and a supporter of the
war, said recently in a news-
letter on his Web site.

But although as a group
they remain more committed
to the conflict than most

A FEW years ago, when Ital-

Berlusconi got up in the Eu-
ropean Parliament and lik-

Government justifiably pro-

Gerhard Schroeder demanded an

PM's outburst which inferred
that all Germans still held a

The stereotypical remark

billionaire media mogul.
brought to mind a book 1
borrowed from the Barbados
Public Library. It is about the
mindset of the German
people under the Hitlerite
dictatorship (1935-1945).
The title of the book is
'Hitler's Willing Execution-
ers: Ordinary Germans and

the Holocaust' tHWG, pub-
lished by Alfred Knopf in
1996) by Daniel Jonah
Goldhagen. The book pur-
ports to document that ordi-
nary German people fully
supported and participated
in German fascism's racist
discriminatory and finally
genocidal policies against
German Jews and those in
neighboring countries con-
trolled by Hitler's forces.
Such policies against Jews are
generally described as "anti-
For Goldhagen. the notiva-
tion of the perpetuators (or, as
he puts it "those who know-
ingly contributed to
the slaughter of the Jews") lies
primarily in an anti-Semitism
embedded in German society
well before Hitler's party came
to power.
"tOrdinary Germans)
were shaped by and operated
in a particular social and his-
torical setting. They brought

conceptions of the

wrote Dr. Goldhagen. then
an Assistant Professor of
Government and Social Stud-
ies at Harvard University in
the U.S.
When it appeared, the
book was a best seller in
North America. For those in
the developing world, includ-

ing the Caribbean and
Guvana, any study on the
Holocaust, during which
people of African descent
and Gypsies (of East Indian
descent) were also deemed
sub-human and perished in
the gas chambers, would be
of interest. The book's cover
notes gushed about it being
"radically transforming our
understanding". It \\as "au-

In fact, as scholarly anal\-
sis, it is worthless.
Serious historians writing
about this period, point
out that the German people
were not in the main inher-
ently anti-semitic (or held
racist feelings against Jewish
people). They were not re-
sponsible for the confine-
ment and murder of the six
million Jews. Indeed, far
from being pathological hat-
ers of Jews, many
opposed this dimension
of evil, fascism rule.

1997 issue of the New Left
Review journal in tihe

scribes as the "m'alignant
spin" of Dr. Goldhagen with
the following \alid points
along others:
German society\ w as
not "deranged" and "patho-
logically ill". Nor did it have
"a perverted consciousness"
as Dr. Goldhagen
argues. Goldhagen's line of

reasoning absolves the real
perpetuators \which was
the efficiently organised,
highly rational Nazi party
Machine. Notes Dr.
Finkelstein: "Goldhagen's
thesis is, in fact (the Ger-
mans') perfect alibi. Who can
condemnn a "crazy" people?"

Before the rise of the

in countries like France.

Democratic Expansion

of the Panama Canal

By Ruben Silie

THE Panama Canal has a
long history whose initial
stages were very much
linked to an era of foreign
domination. This included
the disregard for national
sovereignty and other types
of imperial impositions
that overlooked the desires
of the peoples of the Re-
gion. This grand project
began at a time when there
was a whirlwind of great
economic interests sparked
by the gold fever in Cali-
fornia, or the increase in
lumber, coffee and banana
exploits in Central
America. The metropolitan
powers undoubtedly pro-
cured that wealth under
protectorate schemes, con-
stitutional amendments or
simply through military

where the only interests that
were taken into account were
those of the dominant social
classes, represented by cer-
tain exclusive governments.
In such circumstances, the
Panamanian people were not
considered to be significant
individuals with decision
making capabilities.
Once the initial agree-
ments were signed for the
great construction project.

the United States assumed
sovereignty over the terri-
tory, installing military
bases, because of which the
Panamanians permanently
lost all rights to venture into
the zone. The symbolic act
of flying the Panamanian flag
in that zone was in itself a
great problem that even led

his own people. General
Torrijos won the trust of his
compatriots, who accompa-

trol would be returned to

their contribution to sexual and
reproductive health has
dwindled.," said Glasier.
"In fact, you could argue that
their policies now make access to
sexual and reproductive health ser-
vices and to contraception more
difficult in many countries around
the world," she added.
The researchers argue that
other countries or agencies now
need to act as champions to en-
sure women have access to re-
productive health services.
In the first global study of
sexual behavior, which is part of
the series, researchers found
that couples are marrying later
and having more premarital sex.
But the research from 59
countries showed there is no
universal trend toward earlier
sexual activity and that mo-
nogamy is still dominant in
most regions of the world.
Contrary to common belief,
married couples have the most
sex and the mid-to-late teens is
when both sexes become sexu-
ally active.

CYPCC launches

publication on youth

development issues

THE Commonwealth Youth
Programme Caribbean Cen-
tre is set to launch a collec-
tion of statements, speeches
and papers on youth develop-
ment issues by Regional Di-
rector, Mr. Henry Charles.
The publication covers the
period September 2005 to
September 2006.
Entitled 'Building the Fu-
ture Today', the book is cur-
rently being printed in Guyana
and will be officially launched
this week
'Building the Future Today'
is intended for the use of inter-
governmental and non-govern-
mental organizations and others

working in the field of youth
empowerment, youth affairs
and related areas. It may be
freely copied, reproduced or
quoted by any of these in-
tended users, provided that full
and clear acknowledgement is
given of the author as its source.
"Helping young people in
the Caribbean to realise their
abilities and aspirations", is how
Charles describes his main mis-
sion as Regional Director of the
Commonwealth Youth
Programme (CYP) Caribbean
Charles took office at the
CYP Caribbean Centre,

based in Georgetown,
Guyana, in September 2005
following a career in youth
work, trade unionism and so-
cial development in his na-
tive Saint Lucia.
He feels that, "youth par-
ticipation in national develop-
ment is critically important. So
too is the development of their
social and political conscious-
ness. We need to nurture the
young people so that they, in
turn, can contribute meaning-
fully to their societies."
Mr. Charles is particularly
concerned about vulnerable
young people: the victims of
economic marginalisation and

social exclusion who have been
condemned to a life cycle of
persistent poverty.
"Existing systems and
programmes should be re-po-
sitioned and redefined to ad-
equately meet the needs of
young people and to avoid
their alienation from the
mainstream society. We need
to work with them on issues
such as human rights so that
they will understand that a
rights-based approach is an
integral part of sustainable
development," he said in a
recent comment on his vision
for youth development in the

Latin leaders set

to condemn U.S.

border fence
By Kevin Gray

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (Reuters) Leaders at this
weekend's Ibero-American Summit were set to rebuke the
United States for its plan to build a fence along the Mexi-
can border to keep out illegal immigrants, an official said
on Friday.
President Bush signed legislation last week approving the
construction of the 700-mile (1,126-km) fence. an action con-
demned by Mexico's government.
A draft of a final declaration by the leaders of Spain. Portu-
gal and Latin America gathering in Montevideo includes a spe-
cial statement rejecting the fence plan.

border fence along the U.S.-Mexico border in Otay
Mesa, San Diego July 21, 2006.
(Jorge Duenes/Reuters)

"We express our deep concern over the decision adopted
by the government of the United States," it reads, adding re-
gional leaders want to "make a firm call for the United States
to reconsider" its decision.
"It didn't take long to draft it and there was consensus,"
the official said, requesting anonymity because the document
awaits final approval.

elan President Hugo Chavez, Brazil's Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva
and Peruvian President Alan Garcia were skipping the two-day.
summit that will focus on immigration.
Speaking to reporters, Costa Rican President Oscar Arias
called the fence "shameful" and said-the money spent on it
"would be better invested if it was used by the poor neighbours
of the south to educate our kids."
The Bush administration defends the decision as necessary
to tighten control of the border to keep criminals and terrorists
out. But Mexico argues the fence will do little to ease illegal
entries and will likely increase'deaths along the border.
Every year, thousands of Mexicans risk their lives sneak-
ing across the 2,000-mile (3,200-km) border, much of it desert,
in search of work to escape poverty.
Illegal Latin American and African immigration to
Spain has also risen in recent years.

Habitat volunteers

Building with I

By Chamanlall Naipaul

IN SPITE of the scorching
Guyana sun that has altered
their complexion, a group of
Habitat volunteers from the
US, Spain and Chile relishes
their work here.
The volunteers have been
working on a house that is being
constructed at the new housing
scheme at Parfait/La Hannonie
under Habitat's programme to
provide low cost houses for
poor families.
The group includes team
leader, Ms. Nancy Schwartz,
Ms. Ingrid Johnson, Ms. Jan
Down and Dr. George and
Bonnie Daneker who all spoke
enthusiastically with the Sunday

Chronicle about their rewarding
work despite the sacrifices they
have to make in providing volun-
tary labour.
This is the first visit for the
entire group and they are all im-
pressed with the beauty of
Guyana and the hospitality,
spirit and resourcefulness of the
Guyanese people despite the
economic hardships they face.
Ms. Schwartz said her in-
volvement with Habitat began
some four years ago. She was a
member of International Habitat
Americas US in her native Geor-
gia and is currently attached to a
project management and training
programme Women Building
Programme under which some
850 low cost houses have been

built in the US.
She sees the volunteer
programme here which is cur-
rently involved in building about
30 houses as part of sharing the
experience in the US, and enhanc-

Owning a house helps
people to build self-respect and
the work cuts across race, reli-
gions and nations, she said,
pointing out that those factors,

Just before speaking with
the couple who were bandaging
the injured hand of a Guyanese
volunteer, a truck attached to the
project drove up and Dr.
Daneker jocularly remarked:
"Every time this truck pulls up
you only hear cricket!"
The Danekers' interest in
volunteerism stemmed from their
recognition to share, noting that
the US, being an affluent soci--..

manual labour has to be resorted

They are also impressed
with the spirit of the Guyanese
people acknowledging their re-
sourcefulness and cheerfulness
despite the hardships they face.
Under the present arrange-
ment, Habitat builds houses for
low-income families, allows them
a 15-year repayment period at
zero interest rate and the funds
garnered through that process
are placed in a revolving fund to
continue the programme.
Habitat is a non-profit, ecu-
menical Christian housing minis-
try and its ultimate goal is to
eliminate poverty and
homelessness by erecting ad-
equate and basic houses.

ing the involvement of women in
building houses.
The whole objective, Ms.
Schwartz advanced, is'to help to
empower women in a society
still largely dominated by males
to learn a trade and carn money
and in so doing help their chil-
dren and lift their living stan-
"It is giving tools to women
to help themselves and others."
she reiterated.
'" Speaking on her personal expe-
rience of volunteering, Ms.
uch Schwartz declared: "It becomes
more and more rewarding seeing
Itions: families move on slowly out of bad
situation. It is so rewarding to help
Oh somebody for the rest of their life."
On her impressions of
Guyana, she offered: "The
30h people are wonderful with a
Great sense of humour."
However, she says is jolted
a bit by the level of poverty and
Ms. Ingrid Johnson, a Texan
who is the interim Executive Di-
rectoi of the Longview Habitat
Chapter said the work of the
organisation is unique in that it
helps people to help themselves
and a house is a springboard to-
wards achieving better things.
Ms. Johnson's motivation
for participating in voluntary
work stemmed from her love of
people and meeting them.
She admits that being a vol-
unteer is a sacrifice, but it is
.-- worth it because ircal satisfac-
tion is obtained iln kno\\ inc that

here is nlagmnificcnt. especially
the curry, roti, fruits and fruit

nana in a week, but here, I eat
three per day."
Ms. Jan l)own who hails
from Iowa said her interest in
coming to Guyana as a volun-
teer originated at a Habitat con-
Sference where she met Ms..Jen-
S' > "' nif6r Massiah of the Guyana'

and her love of travelling, moti-
vated her to participate in vol-
unteer work.
She concedes that at -first it
was a challenge because she
knew nothing about construction
Asked if at any time she be-
came frustrated and thought of
quitting, she replied with a firm
'no', pointing out that the frus-
trations have been miniscule
compared with the achievements.
She noted that Habitat has
helped to provide homes for
over 100 million people across
the globe.
And her thoughts on Guyana:
"It is my first visit but Xwould not
he my last. It is a manvelling experi-
ence. It is a beautiful place, with car
ing, gracious and open people," she
She also described her visit
to Kaieteur Falls as an "incred-
ible experience."

Mrs. Daneker said she is im-

observed that the teaching method-

with what obtains in tlhe US. She
also believes that women need to
improve their economic situation by
developing skills which would help
them achieve this.
Dr. Daneker also wants to
return to Guyana as a member
of a medical mission as he
recognizes that there is a short-
age of cancer surgeons here.

houses here by Habitat here to
how it is done in the US. Dr.

there is greater use of machinery

PROUD winner, Ravindranauth Puran last week collected his Mitsubishi Lancer motor car from "
CLICO's Sales Representative, Mr. Cecil Murray of Samlall's Agency. The simple presentation
ceremony took place at CLICO's head office on Camp Street.

This is the second occasion that CLICO has partnered with the Ministry of Tourism to sponsor the
grand gate prize of a motor car.

endeavour of boosting the country's tourism sector. LOING service awardees and other staffers at the function last Wednesday.

I Le plan to improve the
level of competitiveness of
loc 'nidustries is advancing.
For e first time this broad-
bat partnership between
pr ate sector and
go' nment seems to be
wo ng and progress in
bei made in implementing
the actions outlined in the
Str, -gy:

In recent interview with
Nic Godfrey, Economic
Ad\ sor attached to the
Mir "try of Tourism, Industry
anc Commerce and Geoff
Da, Chief Executive
Offi or of the Guyana Office
for. Investment (Golnvest), it
wa' highlighted that both the
pri ite sector and the
go\ rnment are confident
tha ne Strategy will work.

Thk Strategy came into full
put c domain on May 8 this
yei- at a Presidential
Sur nit at the International
Cor lentior Centre when
ove 400 private sector and
gov rnment representatives
me' and to explore nine

action areas considered key
to developing Guyana's
business sector.

A private sector/government
team was named for each of
the nine areas identified and
according to Godfrey 50
initiatives were developed
which the teams are moving
forward on initially.

The nine areas identified in
the Strategy are: light
manufacturing, call centres,
convention tourism,
aquaculture, eco-tourism,
non-traditional agriculture
products, organic agriculture,
forest products and the
traditional sectors such as
sugar, rice, mining and
traditional fisheries.

According: to Godfrey the

action team heading
aquaculture had identified
13 initiatives with specific
objectives for improving the
sector and to date they have
moved forward on
implementing eleven of the
13 initiatives.

"By the end of next year two
large scale aquaculture
operations should be export
ready. They should be
exporting tilapia to the
SUnited States for the first
time", Godfrey said adding
that the nrarket for tilapia in
the United States is growing

He said the team also
formed an Aquaculture
Association where key
people who were

traditionally involved in rice
and traditional fisheries
have come together to
develop aquaculture as a
viable new sector to drive
the diversification plan.

With the support of the
USAID-Guyana Trade and
Investment Support project,
they are being provided with
the resources to introduce
new technology, production
techniques and are being
introduced to potential
The team is also looking at
producing aquaculture feed
which will drastically cut the
cost of production while at
the same time opening a
new sub-sector.

The team looking at light
manufacturing had
identified the need for
training and according to
DaSilva, it was agreed that
the private sector would
take the lead on identifying
such a programme.

He said Dennis Morgan of
DENMOR garment
manufacturing company
was identified to provide on
site training. He alos said
that a study is being
completed that looks at the
training needs for small
agro-processors and one of
the first areas that will be
target is the East Coast of

Demerara where a number
of persons are producing
pepper and other sauces.
DaSilva also said that the
government is discussing
with the government of
India a programme to set
up a training centre and
Information Technology
Park which would improve
the level of
competitiveness of
Guyana's call centres.

He said during a recent
visit to Guyana a
delegation from the Indian
government agreed that
this is one area where-they
could assist.

Similarly, work in all the
areas is'progressing and
simultaneously, work' is
also being done so that the
financial sector could be
better poised to support
the expected growth of

According to Godfrey, a
committee comprising
mainly representative from
the banking sector is
looking at modalities for
sharing information.

This would enable
commercial banks to better
facilitate loans for new
businesses or expansions.
It will also provide banks
with information on

promising sectors.

Part of the programme is
aimed at improving the
efficiency of the financial
sector and removing some
of the excess liciuidity of the
banks by helping the banks
to feel more comfortable

Immediately following, the -
May s u mmit a
public/private sector
diaspora committee was
established and they are
looking at working with the
close to 1.3 million
Guyanese living overseas
to have them return to
invest in Guyana and
reverse the brain drain to a
brain gain.

A Memora-ndum of
Understanding with the
Guyana/Canada Chamber
of Commerce and the
Private Sector Commission
has been signed which will
allow the local private
sector to tap into the
resources of the Diaspora.
A US$27 M has already
been approved by the Inter-
American Development
Bank for taking forward the
first set of priorities listed
under the National
Competitiveness Strategy

Banned Azharuddin feted as hero

FORMER India captain
Mohammad Azharuddin has
been feted as a hero at a cer-
emony attended by top offi-

from cricket for life for his role
in the global match-fixing scan-
dal six years ago.
But he was among a host of


cials of the International
Cricket Council (ICC).

Windies trio head

Jamaica 24-man

training squad

KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) West Indies players Wavell
Hinds, Marion Samuels and Carlton Baugh head a 24-man
training squad called up by Jamaica's selectors this week to
prepare for the upcoming 2007 regional season.
Hinds. Samuels and Baugh are presently in India with the West
Indies team for the ICC Champions Trophy and will miss the start
of training, scheduled to begin Tuesday.
Out-of-favour West Indies players Donovan Pagon. David Ber-
nard Jr. Gareth Breese and Jermaine Lawson have also been included
in the squad.
Twenty-year-old batsman Xavier Marshall, who played two
Tests on West Indies tour of Sri Lanka last year. has been excluded
from the training squad.
Marshall, viewed widely as a bright prospect for the future.
has been embroiled in disciplinary problems and was even dropped
at one stage during the 2006 season.
Fast bowler Dwight Washington, who played one Test
against South Africa last year, has also been overlooked along
with long-serving wicketkeeper Keith Hibbert.
Several players from last year's squad, which finished bottom
of the table after winning the league the previous year, have been
called up.
Fast bowler Andrew Richardson, along with stand-in captain
Tamar Lambert, Danza Hyatt, Bevon Brown, Odean Brown,
Lorenzo Ingram, Brenton Parchment, Nikita Miller, and Dwight
Stewart, will all vie for a spot ahead of the new season.
Eight youth players have been included in the squad including
ex-West Indies Under-19 player Andre McCarthy, Simon Jackson,
Andre Dwyer, Alton Beckford, Dennis Bulli. Andre Russell. Shane
Powell and Oral Rankine.
Jamaica will open the four-day competition against Lee-
ward Islands from January 4 to 7 with both teams meeting
two days later in the KFC Cup.

Mbwana Matumla took the vacant IBO junior bantamweight
title when he beat Filipino Eric Barcelona on points.
The judges may have been rather generous in scoring it 116-
111, 117-110 and 118-109 for Matumla, whose record now stands
at 18-2. with 11 stoppages. Barcelona fell to 33-10-5: 10.
Danie Venter's challenge for the World Boxing Foundation
cruiserweight title did not go into the second half of the fight.
The champion, Gyorgi Hidvegi of Hungary had the South Afri-
can out on his feet at the end of the fourth round and sealed a TKO
win in the sixth when Venter went down from a short right to the
ribs and stayed down.
Venter came in at 90.76 kg and Hidvegi at 90.12.
In a junior welterweight clash scheduled for eight round,
Banda Mathebula was stopped at 2:27 of the eight round by

NEW YORK, NY (Reuters) -
Peter Tergat of Kenya and
Latvia's Jelena Prokopcuka
defend their New York City
Marathon titles today in an
elite field that includes five
Olympic medallists and 10
major marathon winners for
the 26.2-mile race.
Two sets of duels could de-
velop on the men's side.
Tergat, 37, will again face

the race's tightest margin. and
SOlympic champion Stefano
Baldini of Italy joins the field

Mlob Keflezighi.
"I'm obviously looking for

American Keflezighi. "This
is the first time we've raced
since Athens. This is part of
my motivation."

LONDON, England
(Reuters) Even his worst
enemies among the Asian
players he offended during
14 years as a Test umpire
would concede that Darrell
Hair possessed the courage
of his convictions.
The brawny, 53-year-
old Australian, whose in-
ternational umpiring career
ended abruptly yesterday
when he was banned until
his contract expires in
March 2008, never avoided


the tough calls.
Conversely, he never ac-
quired the diplomatic skills
which would have defused
potentially explosive situa-
His strengths and his
weaknesses were highlighted
in the Oval Test in August
which precipitated the down-
fall of the fourth most expe-
rienced Test umpire in his-
tory after 76 Tests and 121
One-day internationals.
On the fourth day of the
fourth Test between England
and Pakistan, Hair and his
colleague Billy Doctrove con-
cluded that the tourists had
tampered with the ball.
Without telling captain
Inzamam-ul-Haq, the umpires
penalised Pakistan five runs and
changed the ball.
The outraged Pakistanis,
who blamed Hair for the deci-
sion, protested by refusing to
take the field after the tea inter-
val and the umpires subse-
quently ruled they had become
the first Test side to forfeit a
Hair's future appeared, at
best, problematic when the
International Cricket Coun-
cil (ICC) revealed in the
same month that he had of-
fered to retire in exchange
for $500 000.
In the following month
his fate was effectively
sealed when an inquiry
cleared Inzamain of hall-tam-
pering and yesterday ICC
president Percy Sonn said
Hair would not be allowed to

umpire again before his con-
tract expired.

Hair first attracted interna-
tional attention in 1995 when lhe
no-balled Sri Lanka off-spinner
Muttiah Muralitharan seven
times for throwing at the
Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Subsequently he called
Zimbabwean part-time left-
armer Grant Flower and ques-
tioned the actions of Pakistan
pace bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and
Shabbir Ahmed.
Although there were
other decisions which an-
gered India. South Africa and
England, it was the throwing
issue with its implication that
the bowler was cheating
which created the most con-

One accusation Hair has an-
grily rejected is the suggestion
that his decisions have been mo-
tivated by racism.
"It really upsets me when
people describe me as a rac-
ist because they have no idea
how I spent my childhood and
how that shaped my beliefs,"
he told Britain's Mail on
"How can people judge nme
to have prejudices when I went
to school in Australia alongside
Chinese children, Hungarian
refugees and all manner of other
Hair's strength of mind was
revealed in full at a September
28 news conference at The Oval
after the announcement that
Inzamam had been cleared of
ball-tampering but found to have
brought the game into disrepute.
The Australian did not
need to face an audience
bound to contain hostile ele-
ments. Not only did he agree
to being questioned but he
also declined an opportunity
to cut short the news confer-
"I don't have any problems
umpiring in any part of the
world," he said. "If we can't
take the criticism we shouldn't
be out there. I've handled it lor
21 years and can still handle it
when it's justified and when it's
not justified."
Willing as he was to answer
questions, Hair also made it
clear when he thought an inquiry
was stupid with dismiissive re-
sponses which alienated those
in the audience lie had begun to
win over.
Ultimately, it was this
lack of sensitivity which led
to the premature end of his

MlUMIBAI, India, (Reuters) -
Australian Darrell Hair was
banned yesterday from unm-

tract." International Cricket

ILINIBA, India, (Reuters) -
Zinbabwe could return to the
Test arena in November 2007
if they improve their domes-
tic structure, the Interna-
tional Cricket Council (ICC)
said in a statement yesterday.
The ICC's executive board
made the announcement after
president Percy Sonn and chief
executive Malcolm Speed re-
ported back on their facl-find-
ing trip to Zimbabwe in late
July and early August.
World cricket's governing
body has asked Zimbabwe to
establish a credible domestic
first-class structure and secure
competitive cricket for their
best players against high-class A
sides in the next 12 months.
The Zimbabwe govern-
ment took control of cricket
in January and one of their
first decisions was to with-
draw the national team from
the Test arena.
The ICC blamed in-fighting
in the Zimbabwe board for their
plight but has been assured by
Zitmbabwe Cricket chairman Pe-
ter Chingoka that a new draft
constitution will be adopted at
a special general meeting on No-
vember 18.
Zimbabwe have been
forced to pick a depleted
team since April 2004, when
most of their senior players
retired or opted to further
their careers in other coun-
tries after a dispute with the
board that followed Heath
Streak's dismissal as captain.
The Zimbabwcans lost nine
of their last 10 Tests, seven by
an innings.
They are still playing one-
day internationals bul last won

nations and three affiliates.
"We have given instruc-
tions to our management to
discuss Hair's future with
Malcolm Speed. chief ex-
ecutive of world cricket's gov-
erning body. said Hair was told
of the decision on Friday.
"1 spoke to Darrell yesler-
day after that decision was
made ... he was very disap-
pointed." said Speed.
"David Richardson (ICC
general manager-cricket) and
inIself will speak to Darrell in

in the history of Test cricket.
An ICC inquiry\ cleared

tampering on September 28 al-

ing the game into disrepute.
Pakistan Cricket Board
(PCB) chairman Nasim Ashraf
welcomed d the decision n on Hair.
"I thank the ICC board
for this very fair and prompt
decision," he said. "This vin-
dicates our stand.
"I'\e been saying from the
start llhe unoi'olrtunate incident at
the Oval which was a blot on

cricket was all because of Hair.
If Inzamam can get a ban for
coming late on to the field, then
the person responsible for that
also needed to be probed."
The ICC had said Hair
would not officiate in the Chanm-
pions Trophy which concludes
in India today for "safety and
security' reasons.

Beefed-up Scorpions and Pacesetters record victories

By Faizool Deo

THE 2006/07 Georgetown
Amateur Basketball Associa-
tion (GABA) season tipped off
on Friday night at the Cliff
Anderson Sports Hall with a
beefed-up Beepats' Scorpions
team whipping a rebuilding
Pepsi Sonics side 72-55, and
Courts Pacesetters edging
out nemesis Ravens 82-78.
It is expected that the tour-
nament will run every Friday
and Saturday night for the rest
of the year.
At the opening ceremony,
president of GABA. Chris
Bowman. described the league as
a stepping-stone towards devel-
oping the game.
He told the teams participat-
ing in the competition to con-
duct themselves with pride and
diligence on the court, indicat-
ing that it is one of the only
ways that the sport can de-

Scorpions on paper nowx
seem to be one of the strongest
teams in the league. For this sea-
son they have acquired the ser-
vices of Mr Slam Dunk Kester
Gomes (formerly from the
Ravens basketball club) and
former Bounty Colts players --
quick-footed point guard Trevor

McLoud and forward Rawle
These players join the
team's leading players: hot-
handed shooter Darrtn-' Gordon
(injured for the night), centre
Darren Thomas and guard
Sheldon Braithlaite.
Scorpions, though win-
ning their game, failed to
stamp their authority on the
league. Of the new faces it
was Williams (10 points)
playing off the bench who led
the scores.
He was able to wrestle into
the paint on numetlrous occa-
sions. Thomas scored eight,
MeLoud five and Gomens fouir.
Another bench player for
the side. Aubrey Smith. carried
the winners in the fourth quar-
ter. His Iluick legs confused the
Sonics defenders as he scored
10 of his 20 points in this pe-
riod. Sheldon Braithwiaite also
reached double figures scoring
15 points.
The game i tated off with
Sonics' Trevor Smith drilling a
three-point shot. but bv fi\ c
minutes into the game. hiis team
started to trail 5-7 and were
never able to Iciaptiure the lead.
Point guard Ryan
Melville played well for the
losing side, his energy kept
his team close but they lack
the fire power to keep up with

their opponents.
Leading by as much as 15
in the second quarter, Scorpions
were given a scare in the third
(7:52 left) when Smith scored
numerous unans\ wered points to

game stwunilg the pentdulunl in the
other direction as he not only

Classy Kldssen beats St Clair in split decision

By Gerhard Burger
SOUTH Africa's Malcolm
Klassen won the IBF junior
lightweight title when he
beat Gairy St Clair on a split
decision in Kempton Park
near Johannesburg last
Klassen produced a stun-
ning perfonnance to win 118-
112 and 117-111 on two
cards. The other judge, an
Australian, gave it to St Clair

SThe newI champion, given
almost no chance by most ex-
perts, outgutned the Guyana-
born Australian in almost every
He showed outstanding
'hand speed, good balance, prob-
ably the best jab in South Af-
rica, all the combinations in the
book, concentration and, above
all, the courage and confidence
to go after the champion for the
whole fight.'

Gairy St,Clair was never
given the chance to
change in his usual buzz-
saw mode.

St Clair, with strength
and experience on his side,
was never given the chance
to change into his usual
buzz-saw mode.
The crowd at Emperor's
Palace saw one of the best fights
in recent years in South Africa
and one of the best perfor-
mances in many years by a
South African.
Klassen, 25, who now has
a record of 19-3-2, with 9 stop-
pages, came into the bout as a

replacement for Cassius Baloyi

S To make his victory even
more astounding, he had
never fought a ranked con-
tender in the junior light-
weight division.
He is ranked at No.15 in the
featherweight division by the
IBF, which qualified him for a
crack at the title but fought in a
heavier division.

St Clair, whose record
dropped to 38-4-2 (17), may
have expected an easy fight but
the 31-year-old never looked
like a man who had fought Di-
ego Corrales, Vivian Harris,
Leonard Dorin and Baloyi.

MUMBAI, India, (Reuters) -
West Indies captain Brian
Lara has told his team to play
"intelligent cricket" in
today's Champions Trophy fi-
nal against Australia. saying
individual flair alone would
not overcome the world
"The Australians try to im-
pose themselves on any oppo-
sition they play," Lara told a
news conference yesterday.
"You ha\ e to play intelligent
cricket. match them at all times,
and take that extra step whlen
the right time comes.
"Playing with flair or at-
tacking cricket is not going to
scare the Australians. You
have to play sensibly, put in
a good team effort. The

Australia are aiming to win
the only trophy missing from
their collection.
Holders West Indies handed
Australia their only defeat in the
group phase but Lara said the
world champions would be
tougher this time.
"We'll be playing against a
team more aware of the situa-
tion and in a big final so we're
expecting tougher opposition
than in the first match of this
tournament," said Lara.
"We've played each other
four times in the last few

months and the fact that it's
2-2 at the moment sets up a
very good encounter," said
the left-hander referring to
their meetings in the recent
tri-series in Malaysia.
Lara said Australia were the
"Of course they're the
lavourites. They're world cham-
pions. the number one. Going
into tlle match you'd be unwise
to think otherwise.
"(But) 1 love the tag un-
predictable, which means
that no opposition, no matter
how strong they are, can
think that they're going to
roll us over."
West Indies defeated South
Africa by six wickets in the
semi-finals with in-form opener
Chris Gayle scoring an unde-
feated century.
Lara. who has occasionally
dropped himself down the or-
der in the tournament, backed
his batsmen to deliver.
"We have different guys,
some who play spin better than
others. They're quite confident
of their ability to come in at any
position and make runs," he
"The fact we have players
who are willing to drop back
in the order or come up the
order is a good thing for us.
Australia are a very good
team but we've been in two
finals before and would like
to win this one to make it two
out of three in the Champi-
ons Trophy."

Despite equality most women still want to marry money. But
how do you guarantee a rosy financial future.
It's official! Women are attracted to men with big incomes. These
findings, from a recent survey, may come as little surprise. Although
in an age when most women work and many earn more than the
men they date. the results do seem anachronistic.
But the findings reflect the age-old belief that money equals
social value and, subsequently power.
Whether or not a woman needs a man's money, power is still
an aphrodisiac and explains why so many rich men who may not
score highly in the looks department still manage to attract leggy
However, even the highest earning couples can come undone if
they don't share the same outlook when it comes to money matters.
Experts have identified a few money type profiles for you as well
as that of your partners so that you can ensure a smooth financial

You are overly cautious about spending money to the point of
being considered tight. So concerned are you about your finances
that you have several saving accounts. You are very careful about
investments, so much so that you often miss out on good deals
through caution. Your parents are likely to have exercised extreme

care in spending and their penny-pinching meant you were raised
in constrained circumstances.

You are careful but not over-cautionls when it comes to spending.
It's likely you have a saving and/or pension plan but are not averse
to splashing out occasionally on little luxuries. You like to plan
ahead for a rainy day but could never be accused of being mean
with money. You probably grew up in a family that
had a well-planned life with a home, mortgage. cars "
and holidays that weren't extravagant.

You occasionally binge-spend and are likely
to have one or two credit card debts. You know ," "'"
you shouldn't overspend and can pinpoint
circumstances that have led to spending sprees.
However, you recognize when they've gone too
far and will try to rein in your spending for a
while. When back on an even keel, you have
the best intentions and might try to save a
little. It's likely your parents gave mixed '
messages about the best way to handle financial

Whether initially attracted to

Hold early talks
In the early stages of love
it's hard to raise money
matters. People naturally feel
embarrassed. But it's
important to do this right from

deciding who pays when you

you have more disposable income that the other, negotiate your
day-to-day spending, and don't be pressured into spending more
to keep up with your partner. State what your budget is and stick
to it.

Honesty is the best policy
Honesty about your finances becomes increasingly important
as your relationship progresses. Secrecy about money causes
insecurity and can be used as a means of being controlling in a
relationship. Be brave and sit the secretive partner down. Calmly
describe your worries and ask why they feel they have to hide
things like credit card statements and receipts. Once difficult
emotions are in the open they're easier to handle.

Careful compromise
The sooner you start to compromise over your spending, the
more you protect your future together. If one of you is a super
spender and the other a super saver it works to sit down regularly.
discuss budgets and compromise. If a big expenditure is coming up
and the super spender want the luxury options, looking through
bank balances can help subdue their impulsiveness.

Manage your money rows
Don't let money difficulties affect the rest of your relationship.
Keep boundaries clear, so if you're having a disagreement over whose
family to visit at the weekend, don't throw in the argument you
recently had about money.

Six months ago I ended a
relationship with a man who
is an alcoholic, habitual liar,
and a player. After the
breakup he became so out of
control he stalked me, and I
had to get the police involved.
It seemed he hit rock-bottom.
With the help of our church
and God, after a long period the
stalking came to a stop. Since
then he has been working hard
to turn his life around. He says
he has given his heart to
God. He also gets one-on-one
professional therapy every
week, and he has regular
sessions with the pastor of our
church. He goes to Bible study,
church study, and Alcoholics

will never be a repeat. I told him

"Once we excavate down

taller than average for that pe-

IN 1961, the Federal Su-
preme Court set aside a con-
viction and sentence of a man
who was convicted for unlaw-
ful possession of a carcass be-
cause among other things,
the animal was not named.
The Court constituted by
Chief Justice Hallinan and Jus-
tices Lewis and Marnan ob-
served too that the admission of
new evidence via information
relative to a previous charge of
larceny of sheep was inadmis-
That Court held that the
charge was bad in law since it
did not refer to an animal men-
tioned in title 7 of Chapter 14;
it was not sufficient to refer to
the property merely as a carcass
or as a quantity of meat.
The appellant Balmookie,
who was convicted by the lower
Court and had the ruling af-
firmed by the Full Court had
moved to the Federal Supreme

Court, complaining that he did
not have a fair trial.
Attorney-at- Law Krishna
Prasad appeared for the appel-
lant, while Senior Crown Coun-
sel Mr. E. A. Romao repre-
sented the respondent.
Section 95 of the Summary
Jurisdiction (Offences) Ordi-
nance, Chapter 14. creates the
offence to unlawful possession
of the carcass of any of the ani-
mals referred to in title 7 of the
The appellant was con-
victed under section 95. but the
statement of offence merely re-
ferred to a "carcass" while the
particulars of offence referred to
"a quantity of meat".
The conviction did not state
that the appellant had, not sat-
isfied the court that he came
lawfully by the meat.
At theitrial, evidence was
led of the recent larceny of a
sheep andithat the meat w"as

c01z.1uJ :i I

On appeal front the order of
the Full Court affirming the
conviction, the Federal Supreme
Court held:
(i) The charge was bad since
it did not refer to an animal
mentioned in title 7 of Chapter
14: it was not sufficient to re-
fer to the property merely as a
carcass-or as a quantity of meat:
(ii) The conviction should
have stated that the appellant
had not satisfied the Court that
lie came lawfully by the part of
the sheep found in his posses-
(iii) Where there is a charge
of unlaw ful possession under
section 95 of Chapter 14. evi-
dence that a larceny of similar
property to that the subject of'

the charge should not he led.
On the basis of that argu-
men(. the Federal Supreme
Court allowed the appeal.
According to the Chief Jus-
tice, the evidence was that a
man called Reuben Ali missed
one of his sheep on June 29 and
there was the evidence of two
witnesses. Robert Gossai and
Dolphin Selall. that two men.
the appellant and the man
jointly charged with him
(Harry). were seen each carry-
ing a bundle containing raw
meat. Gossai said that having
seen them. he went to ;a reef
over thile railway line and there
he saw the head and skin of a
sheep. He told Ali and the mat-
ler was later reported to the po-

The prosecutor. Constable
Beaton, then executed a search
warrant in the kitchen of the ap-
pellant. He found some mutton
which had been boiled and some
similar meat on the floor.
Before the constable could
pick up the meat. the appellant
threw it out of the window
where apparently it was con-
sumed by dogs.
The defendants did not
make any attempt to satisfy
the court that they had come
lawfully by this meat, but
they relied on certain legal

to the evidence of Gossai and
Selall. and, of course, the evi-

dence of the prosecutor, Beaton,
and found that the charge was
According to Chief Justice
Hallinan, many grounds of ap-
peal have been argued but it is
only necessary to consider two.
The first is that there are obvi-
ous defects both in the charge
and in the conviction.
The property, the subject of
the charge, has not been so de-
scribed as to bring it within sec-
tion 95, because under that sec-
tion, the animal must be of a
kind mentioned in Title 7 of
Chapter 14 and it is not suffi-
cient to refer to that property
merely as a carcass or a quan-
tity of meat.
Moreover, in the convic-
tion, it should have been stated
that the appellant had not sat-
isfied the Court that he came
lawfully by the part of the
sheep found in his possession,
so that a very drastic amend-
ment would have to be made
both to the charge and to the
conviction if this conviction is
to be upheld, Hallinan had said.
According to him, that
might be done under section 24
of the Summary Jurisdiction
(Appeals) Ordinance. Chapter
17 and under the powers vested
in this court by section 33 of the
Federal Supreme Court (Ap-
peals) Ordinance, No. 19 of
However, the Chief Justice
explained, the difficulties of the
respondent does not end there.
"In our view, where there is
a charge of unlawful possession
under section 95 evidence that
a larceny of similar property to
that the subject of the charge
should not be led.
The only relevant evi-
dence on a charged under sec-
tion 95 is evidence of circum-
stances of suspicion relative

LNYONE reading this article who is older than 68 years
vas born before the toothbrush was invented. This oral
Iygiene tool although extremely vital is frequently
mplicated in the persistence of any of the numerous and
'aried oral inflammatory diseases. This phenomenon
)ccurs because the contaminated bristles, continuous
moisture and storage environment may present the idea
jf habitat for the infecting germs to multiply. Through
consistentt use of that same contaminated toothbrush,
followed by constant re-infection, the condition may not
e cured despite specific antibiotic treatment.

Because it is perceived to be economically impractical for
nost Guyanese to change their toothbrush twice a month, de-
-ontamination should be done routinely. There are several
nethods to sterilise your toothbrushes among which are the

1. Pour at least two cups of boiling water on the bristles.

2. Submerge the head of the toothbrush in solution of dilute
caustic soda, bleach, pure mouth rinse or alcohol for at least
five hours.

3. Thoroughly dry the bristles and store the exposed
oothbrush in a breezy part of your bedroom.

As the toothbrush was found to be partly responsible for
the transmission of infections and a reservoir for re-infection in
the dentulous (with natural teeth) patient, the denture was
suspected a cause of infection in the edentulous (toothless)
patient. While the denture had long been recognized as a
possibility being involved in stomatitis, the actual mechanism
of repeated infections was unknown.
Early research demonstrated that not only did the surface
of methylmethacrylate (that dentures are made of) become

infected with Candida (yeast), but the depths of the porosity
within the denture material did also. Additional research revealed
that denture surfaces became infected in as little time as 30 to
60 minutes. Surprisingly, the same study found that the depths
of the denture porosity were infected with the germ in as little
as four hours. All denture porosity depths were infected within
seven hours.
Based on this understanding of denture contamination,
attempts of de-contamination were made. Soaking the denture
for two hours in equal parts of household bleach and water for
one hour, followed by a neutralising counter soak of equal parts
of vinegar and water for one hour. was found to be most effective
against Candida. Substantial decontamination of the denture
surface and some depth of porosity were achieved when used
Denture soaks combined with application of the vaginal
cream Mycostatin were proven to be an excellent means of
decreasing the symptoms of stomatitis and Candidiasis. Over
the past five years, a great deal of data has been gathered on
the role of the toothbrush and the denture in the transmission
of disease.
Clearly, both can become infected with pathogenic and
opportunistic germs. Both can transmit these germs to be
oral mucosal membranes and possibly throughout the body.
Both need to be considered when developing a treatment
approach for any patient with oral disease. Finally, both
need to be considered in any prevention programme, but

that our toothbrush or denture can cause us if we are not

can weaken

bones, Israeli

study shows
JERUSALEM (Reuters) Depression can lead to brittle
bones, Israeli scientists found in a new study released on
Monday that also suggested anti-depressant drugs could
be used to treat osteoporosis.
The scientists, at Jerusalem's Hebrew University, said mice
that were given drugs to induce behavior similar to human de-
pression suffered from a loss of mass in their bones, mainly
their hips and vertebrae.
After being given anti-depressants, the bone density of the
mice increased, along with their level of activity and social in-
teraction, the scientists said.
"The new findings ... point for the first time to
depression as an important element in causing bone
mass loss and osteoporosis," Hebrew University
professor Raz Yirmiya, who took part in the study, said
in a statement.
Depression activates the "sympathetic nervous system,"
which responds to impending danger or stress, causing the re-
lease of a chemical compound called noradrenaline that harms
bone-building cells, the study showed.
Anti-depressant drugs block noradrenaline and reverse its
negative effects, according to the findings, which will be pub-
lished this week in the American journal PNAS (Proceedings of
the National Academy of Sciences).
A study published earlier this month by the Forsyth Insti-
tute in Boston found that fluoxetine. used in the popular anti-
depressant drug Prozac, also increased bone mass in mice.
Osteoporosis weakens bones and makes them more
likely to fracture. It is treatable but affects millions and
is most prevalent among postmenopausal women.

ON ONE hand. James
Rodway was reluctant to go to
British Guiana because the
'bad name of Demerara was
prevalent among a few people
in England'. Among those
few bearers of the bad image
of the colony were influential
men of the cloth. On the
other hand, Rodway was
attracted more to British
Guiana through his reading
of Charles Waterton's
AMERICA, published 1825.
That and the fact that Rodway
was a botanist by profession
cause him to declare he was
"ardently desirous of seeing
tropical America."
On September 26, 1870,
James Rodway arrived in
British Guiana and instantly fell
in love with the city. Initially,
he wrote that he was "certainly
pleased with my superficial
view especially with
Cummingsburg with its canals in
which grew plants that were
particularly interesting to a
botanist." Eventually, he would
record the stark realities of the
story of Georgetown in such a
manner that it remains
unmatched in the annuals of our
As with most love affairs,
there is the bittersweet element
with which to contend. Soon,
Rodway was forced to declare
"then came the fly in the
ointment" the city was dirty
and repulsive, a city that was
sanitised by the great fires. All
of which gave birth to the
fascinating study, 'STORY OF

Argosy Co. in Georgetown, later
reprinted by the Guyana
Heritage Society in 1997, and
many other publications
including a novel, one of the
first novels of Guyana.
That novel, 'IN GUIANA

women, tells a tale of romance
and riches, a story of a Glasgow
clerk who comes to British
Guiana. in search of
employment. The story goes


that he marries a half-
Amerindian girl. leading to
Roraima and the discovery of
gold coins with the image of

some two decades after the
publication of the first
Guyanese novel. 'LUTCHMEE
AND DILLOO'. a study of
West Indian Life. 1877. Both
books were written by English-
born men.
Apart from similar
characteristics in the
subtitles of both novels, there
are other similarities to be
found in the lives and
writings of both men. Both
men were white and elite, a
category of persons doing
almost all the writing on the
dependencies of Britain at
the time. Interestingly, both
men departed Britain for

year, 1870. That was the year,

into 36 editions by 1876. The
success of the book made
Jenkins a controversial
figure overnight because it
was "a satire on sectarian
religious education." Both
men wrote copiously on
British Guiana, but Rodway
who lived and died here was
the more prolific of the two.
Rodway became so intimate
and integrated in functioning of
the colony that by 1886 he was
made the Librarian and Assistant
Secretary of one of the more
influential organizations, Royal
Agricultural and Commercial
Society, in which capacity he
served until 1888. He was also

and 1899, he was co-editor of

IN A fantastic three-day dis-
play of culinary and artistic
talent, CARICOM Secretariat
staffers let down their hair
and brought out hidden tal-
ents, effectively dispelling the
generally held belief that
they are only about academia
and serious regional busi-
For three days, October 31
November 1, the Secretariat
held its Staff Talent Celebrations
2006 under the theme 'Fusing
Creat /ity with a healthy bal-
anced lifestyle'. For the activity.
the lower corridor of the Secre-
tariat was transformed into a
mini exposition showcasing the
remarkable talent of staffers in a
wide range of areas including
craft, fashion, the performing
arts, cosmetology, multimedia
creations, and gardening.
A new category titled 'Col-
lectibles' gave staff the opporlu-
nity to exhibit their personal and
treasured collections such as key
rings, stickers, postage slamps,
bottles and dolls.
The exhibition of items by
the staffers Fayc Housty; Gail
Cheong; Gwen Houston; Sharon
Browne; Joyce Sinclair; Abolia
Richards; Roxanne Mc Kinnon;
Kenrick Daniels; Beverly
Reynolds; Sharon Jordan;
Megan Anderson, Necola
Meyers; Neville Bissember,
Rianne De Haas and Debroy
Chan must be highly com-
For more than two hours
last Wediisday, the final day of
S the celebrations, the walls of the

new state-of-the-art CARICOM
Secretariat at Liliendaal reverber-
ated with applause as non-par-
ticipating staff members downed
pens and joined with special
guests in showing appreciation
during a cultural presentation
that brought the curtains down
on the talent-spotting activities.
The rich cultural session,
which opened with an
energetic dance titled
'Destiny Call' by staffers,
Stacy and Althea, included an
instrumental and other pieces
by the Caribbean Community
Secretariat (CCS) Band with
its lone steelpan player,
.Jamaican, Dr Hilary Brown;
renditions on violin by Ms.
Dawn Baldeo, and solos by
Pamela Das, Barbara Lee and
Faye Marks. Carolyn
Walcott's poem which
skillfully related her first
earthquake experience while
on duty in Trinidad and
Tobago during the Carifesta
celebrations this year; and a
rib-tickling monologue 'Mind
Yuh Busintes' by Jean
Kennedy in which she related
an encounter as a little girl
growing up with a 'long-
winded' Aunt Mavis, and a
tribute to Miss Lou, were well
received by the audience.
Stealing the spotlight for the
afternoon, however, were the
two segments of fashion dis-
plays in which staffers, both
male and female, donned pieces
by local fashion designer, Natalie
Ward, and strutted their stuff to

rich Caribbean music. The dis-
plays featured saris. beautifully
put-together informal and office
wear and wraps and dashiki tops
for the men. The male models.
however, stole the spotlight
from their fairer counterparts, as
they presented quite a picture
and elicited numerous catcalls
when they donned suits accen-
tuated by bright-coloured shirts.
The models' make-up and
hairstyles were by done by
Karen Whitnev and Mignon
Bowen, respectively.
The three-day Staff Tal-
ent Celebration 2006 has its
genesis in a CARICOM Staff
Talent Exhibition held on
September 22. 2002. at the
staff recreational facility at 5"
High Street under the theme
"Diversity... one

By Neil Marks
DESSIA Braithwaite has
come back from Poland, de-
lighted to have had "the expe-
rience of a lifetime" but un-
happy at not making a mark,
as has been the case with
Guyana's recent contestants
to the Miss World pageant.
In 2001, Olive Gopaul was re-
vered by the international press, but
the judges' vote denied her a place
among the finalists, and since her
time, noother local gid has managed
to steal the media spotlight of the
world's oldest and biggest beauty
It was hard to find a men-
tion of Dessia in the international
press and photographs of her
were but a trickle.
So, what's the problem?
Dessia says Guyana needs
to do more to prep its delegates
for the international stage.
Dessia says she had no
chaperone to Poland, no one to
take care of her interests, no one
to wave the Guyana flag.
For Guyana to make a mark
at the international pageant,
Dessia feels more should be in-
vested in its delegates. Anything
else would be sending girls on a
vacation, she said.

Chocolate lady
Dessia says the one month
she spent in Poland was an ex-
perience of a lifetime, having
been able as she puts it, travelled
half way across the earth and ex-
perienced the cultures of more
than 100 countries.
She says her most memo-
rable experience was on a visit
to the Polish capital, Warsaw,
when an old woman asked her
for an autograph. She couldn't
understand what the woman was
saying, but she knew it was
something pleasant judging form
the broad smile on her face.
When she asked Miss
Canada to interpret, she soon
learnt that the woman was refer-
ring to her as a "chocolate lady".
Dessia says it was amazing, as
well as amusing. that there were
people in Poland who had never
seen "dark coloured people."
Dessia says she particularly
admired the way Polish citizens
were in touch with their history.
She said the experience at the
Warsaw Rising Museum was a
humbling one for her. She says
she was moved at the sight of the
crew crnmite stone in the museum
where the names of thousands of
insurgents killed defending War-
saw were engraved.
For Dessia. as well as the
other contestants from Africa
and the Americas, the mu-
scum was a powerful and poi-
gnant introduction to some of
Poland's darkest history.
The experience of placing
hcr ears to a vibrating wall.
symbholising the heartbeats of
those killed, was an experience
like another.
For their final evening in the
city. the Miss World Contes-
tants were invited to join guests
on the grounds of Krakow's Ar-
chaeological Gardens. It ranks as
the most enjoyable events
Dessia attended.
As the sun set, the contes-
tants were treated to a delight-
ful smorgasbord with an array
of lobsters, prawns, beef and

more. There was also a ballet
display that included acrobats
and jesters performing around
giant works of art. A famous
Polish singer and trumpeter
played wonderful melodies that
moved everyone.
The Mayor of Krakow
thanked the girls from Miss
World for bringing such beauty
to this magnificent city and an-
nounced a surprise firework dis-
play on the river.
Dessia said it was the most
spectacular fireworks displays
she had ever seen. On the shores
of the River Wista, music, fire-
works and lasers filled the sky.
Spotlights illuminated several in-
credible inflatable dragons and
other animals mounted on boats.
Music and a voice over told the
legend that surrounds Krakow
and the dragon of the river.
"Krakow was my favourite
place; I will never forget it," she
Dessia says on pageant
night, she went on stage and per-
formed her best.
"This is one big night; you
don't get to do it again. So I went
out there and had fun," she says.
However, not being called
among the finalists was not a
surprise for Dessia.
"When Guyana sends a con-
testant, they are not sending Dessia

to Miss World. They are sending
the country, and if the country's
doesn't throw its support, it's just
like a vacation," she says.
For the rest of her reign,
Dessia says she will start con-
centrating again on her studies in
social work and perform what-
ever duties are required of her.
She says she would like to
talk to young people, who seem
not to be getting the seriousness
about HIV/AIDS.

She says it is evident that
there is a huge campaign to stop
the spread of the disease, but
there are many who still engage
in risky behaviour. According to
Dessia, young people should be
given a voice in the fight against
the disease. She also wants to
work with juvenile delinquents.
"When my reign is over, I
want to be remembered as
someone who represented my
crown well." Dessia says.

Feature of high-end video
Now, as Electronic Arts and
:he gaming arm of Def Jam
Records gear up for the third in
:heir successful series of Def
lam-branded game titles, and
first for next-generation game
platforms, music is being incor-
)orated into the fabric of the
gameplay as well.
"Gaming is almost intrinsic

Wirtzer, VP marketing at Def

Jaii Interactive. "Every artist
who goes on the road is going
to have some sort of 'I.. i.,II ii,

goes hand in hand."
For their latest endeav-
our, EA has opened a studio
in Chicago that is working
with more than 35 top-selling
artists, including the Game,
Ludacris, Paul Wall, T.I. and
Big Boi. All of the Def Jam
artists in the fighting game
will be photorealistic play-
able characters with unique
moves and exclusive music
tracks. The development
team laser scanned each art-
ist and motion-captured their

facial and body llovements to
take advantage of next-gen-
eration technology. Not only
will the artists be featured in
lifelike moves in the game.
but their music also will in-
fluence the gameplay for the
first time.
"Music plays a much big-
ger role in this title than in the
past two." Wirtzer says. "Mu-

recorded by her relative
Danielle Major of Kingdom
Friends studio, located in
Kitty, Georgetown. Celeste
did her own back-up vocals
during the two-week record-
Asked about the meaning of
'Back it up' Celeste answered,
"It's basically a dance. People
interpret it in their own way
sometimes but I love dancing

and whenever 1 start dancing the
first part I move is my waist.'
She laughed, then explain that
along with her sisters, Jonelle and
Ginesta, she is co-owner of a
dancing school in New Amsterdam
Berbice called the Jireh Gem
Dancers (JGD), a name which also
represents the initials of the three,
Celeste's middle name being Dawn.
The JGD Dancers are
featured in the 'Back it up'
video. The nicely composed
video is hot, with female and

male dancers instructing the way
one should back it up on the
dance ,floor in a nightclub
atmosphere. They are uniquely
dressed in sexy clothing, calling
even more attention to the
already attractive rhythm of
The 'Back it up' video is

the Baby Cham show will be

to the defendant's possession. Counsel for the Respondent has referred us to section 41
(4) of the Summary Jurisdiction (Procedure) Ordinance. Chapter 15, and that read as follows:
"Where unlawful possession under section 94 of the Summary jurisdiction (Offences) Or-
dinance is charged and the evidence establishes the commission of the offence of larceny of
any kind, or of receiving stolen property, the defendant shall not be entitled to have the com-
plaint dismissed, but may be convicted of the larceny or of receiving stolen property and
shall be punished accordingly."
The Chief Justice went on to disclose that Subsection (7) of the same section then provides that if
the magistrate does decide to proceed on a charge of larceny or receiving, he must commence the pro-
ceedings de novo.
He added: "This section constitutes a very novel and drastic departure from legislation in par
material, and in our view, it should be strictly construed. We do not think that its application should
be extended beyond section 94 of the Summary Jurisdiction Ordinance to which it refers.
"We consider that the ground of appeal is one of substance. The evidence of the owner of
the lost sheep, Reuben Ali, should not have been admitted and in the circumstances, both hav-
ing regard to this piece of inadmissible evidence and to the errors and omissions in the charge
and conviction, this appeal should be allowed and the conviction and sentence set aside".

talked about.
Thanks to the GT&T jingle
competition, she has become a
popular voice on the radio
behind one of the more loved
commercials. Although Celeste's
jingle placed second, it has
become a favourite after rounds
of competition in the widely
supported televised contest,
and is being used by the phone
company to advertise its cellink
"GT&T Cellink Plus,
GT&T it's a must," her voice
rings out on the airwaves.
Her new accomplishment is
testimony to the fact that
someone does not necessarily
have to win the competition to
become a star. but as long as
your talent is realized, the next
step is to prove your worth.
Casually dressed in a baby
pink halter top and blue Capri
jeans, the teenager praised the
phone company for arranging
the competition which allowed
her the chance to showcase her

"The GT&T jingle
competition gave me a push and
I'm more out there now so I got
the chance to get it done. The
competition has exposed me to
a lot of things and it gave me a
lot of push and the chance to
meet a lot of people," she said
during the interview.
She has certainly won the
hearts of many and has already
been approached to do other
commercials. She has modelled
for the Windies Sports Bar
advertisement shown regularly
on television. Yes, Celeste is one
of those young ladies with the
prettiest smile having a bite of
delicious goodies at the fairly
new sports bar.
She models a little, but
admits that unlike her two older
sisters, modelling is not what
she really wants to do.
"I am just taking the blessing
God gave me right now... I
think the God put me here to
be a singer. He gave me this

talent and I am showing it to the
world," she said.
She sings crossover music,
but 'Soul' is what really is in her
heart and soul. The long list of
songs Celeste has written and is
waiting to record include more
soca tunes, soul, and gospel. She
has already recorded a gospel
album but it is not available
"I sing crossover music but
what I really wanna sing is
'soul'. I am singing these other
kinds of music basically to
attract fans and to become more
popular. Maybe some of it is
going to help my soul."
There are a few music
greats she looks up to, but since
childhood, some of her strength
has been drawn from one
particular woman.
"Whitney Houston. is one
of my sources of inspiration,
but I don't pattern myself after
her. I don't try to sound like
anyone else, I have my own
sound. I wanna go out there and
show what I have to offer," said
the chocolate Guyanese girl.
Celeste declares that her
talent is natural, since she was
given no formal training in
music. She says singing any
song comes "easy"for her since
it is something she has been
doing for quite a wtle.

Hello Readers,

LAST week, we examined the
general role of the United Na-
tions (UN). This week, we will
be examining how this interna-
tional organisation influences
country specific environmental
management plans and
programmes. Firstly, there will
be discussions on the
organisation responsible for en-
vironmental management (EM)
- United Nations Environment
Programme (UNEP). Then the
following sections would articu-
late on the roles and functions
of UNEP and principles that dic-
tate its functions in specific re-
gards to environmental manage-
ment (EM).

Chapter 8 of Agenda 21
calls on countries within the

wider international community
to craft and adopt national strat-
egies for bringing about sustain-
able development (NSDS). It
highlights that such strategies
"should build upon and
harmonise the various sectoral
economic, social and environ-
mental policies and plans that
ai e operating in the country."
As a spin-off, the United Na-
tions Millenium Declaration has
recommended that the prin-
ciples of sustainable develop-
ment be integrated or
mainstreamed into country poli-
cies and programmes to attain
the desired end of sustainability.

UNEP is known as the
voice for the environment

within the United Nations (UN)
system. It was established in
1972 and functions specifically
as a catalyst, advocate, educa-

moting the wise use and sustain-
able development of the global
environment. To accomplish
these objectives, UNEP works
with a wide range of actors
(stakeholders) at the interna-

IN F OMOTING healthy plant development and growth,
it is important to recognize that acidic conditions which
are not conducive to plant growth and development could
be corrected with the addition of limestone (lime) and
the process is called liming. Liming then is a
management practice, which farmers use to correct
soil acidity problems.

There are many materials that could be used for liming. These

The material that the farmer
uses will be dependent on what is
available in the market. In any
event, liming materials contain the nutrients calcium or magnesium,
or both. When a liming material is added to the soil, a set of reac-
tions takes place. This causes the soil acidity to be reduced and
create suitable conditions for good crop growth and development.
The soil also has ample supplies of the two nutrients, calcium and
magnesium. for uptake. Farmers should know that calcium and mag-
nesium are two plant nutrients that are not normally supplied as
fertilisers. Once, the soil does not contain enough of these nutri-
ents. then lime is the main source of them.

Farmers need to be aware as to when lime should be applied
There are cases w here some farmers apply lime ever' cropping sea-
son. others every ear and some, not at all. Lime must be applied
when the soil pH is so low (or acidity high) to attain the desired
pH suitable for the growth and development of the particular crop.
It is therefore necessary to determine the soil pH before planting.
A pH meter is used for this test. Farmers who have access to pH
meter, can do this test themselves or can request the services' of

Once it is recognized that farmers need to apply himestone, then
the question aliases as to how much needs to be added. The amount
to apply will be given in the soil test report. Adding too little (un-
der liming) or too much (over liming) makes no sense. If enough
limestone is not obtained over liming can result in some nutrients
such as iron. manganese. copper and zinc becoming deficient.
Farmers should remember that there is a cost attached to lim-
ing. In order to. get maximum returns from this investment, the rec-
ommended amount of limestone must be used. As a rule of thumb.
the following guidelines could be used for making lime recommen-

Soil Texture

Sandy Loam
Clay Loam
Organic soil (Peat)

Amount of lime to raise pH from 5.5
to 6. Kg/ha or Ib/A

The limestone recommendation is given in kg/ha or lb/A. A
fanner can estimate the amount of lime he/she needs to apply once
the size of the field is known. The following example shows how
this is done.

Size of field = 50 yd X 20 yd
Area of field = 50 X 20 = 1000 yd2
One acre = 4840 yd2
Size of the field in acres = 1000/ 4840 = 0.20 acres

If the recommendation was 1500 lb/A. then the farmer
would need to purchase 1500 X 0.20 = 100 lb bags of lime-
stone. Generally, limestone is sold in 100 lb bags, so the farmer
would need to
purchase 3 bags. If the quantity is to be determined in hect-
ares. then it is useful to remember that 1 hectare = 10.000 m2. Simi-
lar calculations would then be done as shown above.

Once limestone is to be applied, the following steps must be
closely followed.
1. Know beforehand the amount to apply.

2. Field must be cleared of all weeds, etc.

3. Broadcast the lime evenly on the soil surface.

4. Incorporate (mix in) lime into the top 6" (15 cm) of soil by
ploughing, forking, etc.

5. Ensure adequate moisture is present in the soil by watering
intermittently (maybe once a week). Water is necessary for the lime
to react with the soil.

Liming reactions generally take three to four weeks to be
completed. Thus, to ensure the beneficial effects of liming,
crops should he planted / transplanted at least three weeks
after the lime had been nclmied wifthi the soil. Liming is not
recommended during the crop growing season' as the benefi-
cial effects Nwould not be realized.

The first time we saw Bob Barr, the 17 members
of our band were sitting on the stage at Jordan Voca-
tional High School in Columbus, Georgia. We squirmed
as he towered above us.
"Let's see how well you can follow me," he said
ominously, looking in my direction and lifting the baton.
A self-taught drummer, I had volunteered to play our
battered bass drum.
At that moment our band was truly the worst in the
land. It was 1946, and we were poor kids whose par-
ents worked in the mills and foundries. Until a year
earlier, we had neither instruments nor a director.
Now, Bob Barr had come to Jordan Vocational to
decide if he would take the job. He had distinguished
himself as a member of the Indianapolis Symphony Or-
chestra. But we feared that when he heard us, he would
smile politely and walk away.
His baton streaked downward, and we began. It
must have sounded terrible. We had inherited junk-store
horns and drums. Most of us couldn't read music. But
Mr. Barr didn't let on that we played badly. "Nice!"
he whispered to the trumpeter whose first note miracu-
lously hit on cue. "Not bad!" he lied as our chord ech-
oed in the auditorium.
Then he said to me, "You followed very well!"
It was the first compliment I had ever received. I
was a classroom failure. Except for band practice, ev-
ery school day was a torture.
"Will you take the job?" I blurted out as he turned
to leave.
He looked at me for the longest time, then said. "I prob-
ably will." To this day no one is certain why he did.
Like our families, Robert M. Barr's had little money
as he was growing up. When he was five, his father
died. His mother worked as a hotel maid in Konawa,
Oklahoma. When he was eight, an old Seminole In-
dian taught him to play trumpet. A local bandmaster
coached him on the tuba and got him a scholarship to
the Cincinnati Conservatory. There, Bob Barr won a
national scholarship and joined the Indianapolis Sym-
phony. Drafted into the Army in 1943, he was soon
directing a soldiers' chorus at Fort Benning, Georgia.
"You want to be a real band?" he asked soon after
he joined us. We nodded enthusiastically. "Then don't
be satisfied until you're the best in the land.".....
"If you want to be the best," he said on our last day
of school that here for practice tomorrow morning at
eight o'clock."
We looked at him, stunned. "Tomorrow is Saturday
and Monday we start summer jobs," we said.
"No vacations, no weekends, no summers for us if
you want to be winners," he said.
"Yes, sir," we replied. And from that moment we
were his.

who do not know, a commonplace book is a collection of items
that have some special significance for you personally and
that may eventually become a source of writing ideas that
you can use for other writing.)

Using a Reader-Response Journal
If you choose, you can get into the habit of using a
reader-response journal. It is a simple but effective
means of seeing how your reactions to what you read
have developed over subsequent readings.
This is how you do it: Set up a reader-response jour-
nal in a separate notebook or in a special section of your
personal journal or learning log.
Once you set up your reader-response journal, start
writing reactions to what you read. Use a number of
creative ways to respond to what writers produce, fic-
tion and non-fiction, whatever the size or genre.
Here are some ways you can try:
i) Think of a story or novel that has a character you
find appealing. Explain why you identify with the char-
ii) Rewrite an important scene from a different point
of view.
iii) Write a review of the book. Note its strengths
and weaknesses as well as any suggestions you might
have for making the book better.
iv) List questions you have coined yourself about how
the book is organized.
v) Create a magazine advertisement that you think
would help sell the book.
vi) Create a dust jacket with a new cover design and
information about the author on the inside flap.

Personal Note: What have you read so far about
which you have deepened your reactions subsequently?
Is it a passage, a short story, a poem, a novel? Search
yourself and your reader-response journal if the answer
is not coming readily and come up with a fair answer.
Resolve to acquire more skills to deepen your response
to works of fiction the funniest, the saddest, the most
interesting or surprising thing, or something with which
you strongly disagree.

The Poem
Here is a student's reaction to a short poem called
"The Eagle" by Lord Alfred Tennyson. The reaction

changed when the student from Kelvyn Park High read
the poem a second time.
The Eagle
He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ringed with the azure world he stands.
The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
This is her statement:
When I first read "The Eagle," I was not too im-
pressed, but reading it a second time made me change
my mind about the first impression. The poem is short
and compact, but wonderfully powerful. There's so
much beauty and majestic feeling in it. Here is an eagle
high above lonely lands, soaring through a sun-filled sky.
Then, without warning, it drops from the sky and at-
tacks. The image that this poem conveys is so breath-
taking; it lingers in the mind like a fond memory.
What do you say about the poem?

Distinguishing Between Adverbs and Adjectives
Some words can either be adverbs or adjectives, de-
pending on how they are used in a sentence. To dis-
tinguish between these two parts of speech, remember
that an adjective modifies a noun or pronoun, and an
adverb modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb.
He arrived late. (adverb) She slept early. (adverb)
The dinner was late. (adjective) Jennifer had an
early date. (adjective)
You can sometimes distinguish an adverb from an
adjective by remembering that many adverbs are
formed by adding -ly to an adjective.
a rare (adjective) insect (noun)
a great (adjective) man (noun)
rarely (adverb) find (verb)
greatly (adverb) appreciate (verb)

Not all words that end in -ly are adverbs. Some
are adjectives that have added -ly to the noun.
(Noun) (Adjective ending with -ly)
brother brotherly love
state a stately home

Something to Try
Identify each of the words in bold print as an ad-
verb or an adjective.

Study Skills
Working in Groups
Right now you are finding that you cannot always
study alone. You find that working closely with others
often pays off. For such study to be successful and
fulfilling its purpose, you and the other group members
need to follow certain rules and procedures. (This sec-

I: :

ARIES -- A big test of your patience will come in the form of a rather demanding
person today. But don't worry the universe has loaded you up with an extra
supply of tolerance, so you will be prepared for whatever comes your way.
None of your feathers can get ruffled right now, so it might be the perfect
time to have that conversation you've been putting off with a relative. Your
criticism shields are nearly impenetrable, so a long lecture is something you'll
be able to tolerate easily today.

TAURUS -- Your practical side is in total control today, so this is a good time
to confront temptation. No matter what it is, you'll be able to handle it. Give
that diet one more try today, and you could discover that you have a hidden
stash of self-discipline that has just been waiting to be set free! Frivolous
parties, gossipy small talk and other sorts of trivial interests are not going to
hold any allure. You're all about substance and utilitarianism.

GEMINI -- No matter what you do today, do it with conviction. Now is not
the time to be wishy-washy, or to drop something once it starts to get boring.
Today you have to commit. Save the flighty behaviour for another time, when
no one is counting on you and you have the freedom to flit from one thing to
another. If you are too unpredictable now, you run the risk of confusing people
who need to have confidence in you. Even if you have to fake your conviction,
do it.

CANCER -- If you haven't made time to socialise with your friends recently,
make that your number-one priority today. Schedule a date with your closest
friend or, better yet. plan a daytrip to your favourite shopping or sporting
destination. Doing something active is better than sitting in a movie theatre.
Don't worry about creating quality time: just have fun. Right now, quantity
does mean more than quality, no matter what the relationship experts on TV
tell you.

LEO -- It can be very easy to confuse stubborn behaviour with determination.
Make sure you're not giving a negative label to someone who is merely doing
what he or she thinks is right. Resist making any judgments about the
questionable behaviour of the people around you today they have more
power over you than you might think. Plus, they may have no choice. Adopt
a 'live and let live' attitude, and you will avoid a great deal of stress and
unwanted scrutiny.

VIRGO -- Shaping your personal philosophy is not a luxury. The longer you
put off making the tough decisions, the harder finding internal strength when
you need it will be. You already have most of your concepts about living
formed, but they haven't solidified yet they're still somewhat malleable. Large
personalities could influence you. so be careful that you don't let someone
else's views about life change who you want to be.

LIBRA -- Kindness will play a major role in your day. You are meant to find a
new understanding about reciprocation. Give to others what you want to get
from them, and everything will work out the way you need it to. If you've
been feeling alienated by anyone lately, today is the day to reach out and try
for a soft. sweet connection. Be honest and compassionate about how you
feel. and remember that thinking about others' feelings is a wise way to
proceed in life.

SCORPIO -- You have been enjoying a powerful phase of life, and your
potency is not about to weaken any time soon. But you should beware of
forces beyond your control today. Unexpected wrinkles in your plan could
cause you some frustration if you don't take the initiative and meet every
challenge head on. Do not try to do everything by yourself. You know whom
you need on your team, so get the word out and rally the troops around your

SAGITTARIUS -- The heady thrill of excessive behavior will tempt you today,
but it is time to take a more conservative stance. Watch your money. avoid
going shopping and don't overeat. Cutting back where you tend to go
overboard will not be as difficult as it may have been in the past, partially
because you've recently learned some lessons the hard way. Food is not going
to give you any comfort today, so ignore your sweet tooth.

CAPRICORN -- Unenthusiastic people might test your endurance, but today
your creativity is at an all-time high. and you are up for the challenge! Yo)
can make this day a blast, even if you're stuck in a boring situation with a
bunch of folks who think talking about the weather is scintillating conversation
Use your imagination it's your ticket out of boredom every time. Toss
lifeline to other bored folks and suggest alternative places for your minds t(

AQUARIUS -- You have always had a gift for being tactful, but lately yor
imay have been feeling that people who use a sledgehammer approach \\Witl
eir fe oces are gettillg f'iurther l thMn ou ever haxe with \\ell-chosen words. Thi;
is not true. Inl realit.. Iou I keep the upper hand by using ithe subtle approach
So if you feel a need for persuasion today, have confidence that you can b
forceful without losing your dignity and get exactly what you \want.

Medical Biotechnology Part

19 Pharmacogenomics 10

SINCE the dawn of genetics in 1865 when the Austrian monk,
Father Gregor Mendel, elucidated the genetic principles in-
volved in the inheritance of various characteristics such as
flower colour and smoothness of sweet peas, modern biotech-
nology techniques such as the polymerase chain reaction and
microarray diagnostics and related molecular biology have tre-
mendously changed the field of genetics. The Human Genome
Project which mapped the entire human genetic complement
is the finest example.
In 1869, barely four years after Mendel's sweet pea genetics
work was published, Dr. Johann Meischer achieved the then re-
markable feat of isolating DNA from the nuclei of white blood cells.
It took a few decades to achieve another important milestone when
in 1910 Dr. Thomas Morgan provided the first scientific proof that
genes were carried on chromosomes. It was in the same year that
the term "biotechnology" was coined.
It was in 1910 that sickle cell anemia was first described in
western science. However, anecdotally, as with most traditional
knowledge, the disease was known in Ghana by specific vernacular
terminology for centuries, according to Professor Felix Konotey-
Ahulu in his monumental book The Sickle Cell Disease Patient pub-
lished in 1991 with over 4500 literature references!
In the traditional Ga-Adagme language of southern Ghana, the
vernacular name of the sickle cell disease "hemkom" literally trans-
lates as "internal body ache" in reference to "cold temperature in-
duced rheumatism" in the traditional knowledge sense. Is it pos-
sible that in Guyana, some unbeknown/untested sickle cell crises
symptoms may have local misnaming as "arthritis"?
Today, with the entire human genome mapped, we know our
human species, Homo sapiens sapiens, is one big family with 99.6
to 99.8 per cent of our genes similar regardless of how different
our physical appearances may indicate.
In the words of Dr. Francis Collins, the chief of the US Human
Genome Project, published in a special issue of volume 36 of the
journal Nature Genetics in 2004, "A true understanding of disease
risk requires a thorough examination of root causes. 'Race' and
'ethnicity' are poorly defined terms that serve as flawed surrogates
for multiple environmental and genetic factors in disease causation,
including ancestral geographic origins, socioeconomic status, edu-
cation and access to health care. Research must move beyond these
weak and imperfect proxy relationships to define the more proxi-
mate factors that influence health."

Continuing our discussion from two Sundays ago, we provide,
in synopsis, additional list of some of the salient take-home points
as follows:
1) According to the Human Genome Epidemiology (HuGE)

reviews on sickle hemoglobin published in volume 151 issue 9 pub-
lished on May 1, 2000 in the journal American Journal of Epidemi-
ology, there is a family of globin genes that "dictate" the sequenc-
ing of the amino acid units for the synthesis of the globin proteins
that characterize the different hemoglobins (through a messenger
RNA template) aside from the Beta-globin gene whose mutation or
single nucleotide polymorphism results in hemoglobin S, classified
by Greek letters, namely:

a. Alpha globin gene
b. Gamna-globin gene
c. Delta-globin gene
d. Epsilon-globin gene, and
e. Zeta-globin gene

2) According to OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance
in Man), in addition to the Beta-globin mutation resulting in
the hemoglobin S gene variant, there are an amazing 475 other
Beta-globin gene variants several of which result in other ge-
netic blood diseases.

3) According to eNotes of the Encyclopedia of Genetic Dis-
orders published 2006, the following are some of the key symp-
toms of sickle cell disease:
low red blood cell counts (anemia)
blood blockage in the spleen or liver (sequestration)
eye damage
bone damage
pain episodes
increased infections [from bacterial, viral and other
leg ulcers
yellow eyes or jaundice
early gallstones
lung blockage
kidney damage and loss of body water in urine
painful erections in men [a condition medical doctors call
delayed growth

4) An example of another very important blood related ge-
netic disease is thalassemia, a genetic disorder which occurs when
there is decreased production of one of the globin chains found in
hemoglobin resulting also in anemia.

5) According to an article by Professor Carlos Brugnara of
Harvard Medical School, a key aspect of the cell biology of the
sickle red blood cell is the membrane structure which has a peculiar
ion transport channel system called the Gardos channel which con-
trols the movement of calcium and potassium ions in and out of
red blood cells as shown in Figure 1 below.

6) "All red cells contain Gardos channel proteins in their
membranes. Sickle cells accumulate excessive quantities of calcium
that activate the Gardos channel (illustrated as the blue circle on
the red cell membrane.) The Gardos channel is a protein "pump"
that expels intracellular potassium when activated by calcium. The
red cells loose water along with calcium. The result is a higher in-
tracellular hemoglobin concentration. This promotes polymeriza-
tion of deoxygenated Hemoglobin S."

7) Sickle cell hemoglobin can be inherited along with thalas-
semia as well as other hemoglobin variants such as Hemoglobin C
in which case an in individual can inherit one variant from either
parent resulting in the individual having both hemoglobin S and he-

moglobin C. This genetic condition is called the SC type. This coor
edition has similar symptoms and crises to sickle cell disease of tl
SS type.
Evidently, the relevance of basic genetic testing for sickl
cell trait and other hemoglobin variants locally cannot be o\ '

NORTH BERGEN. New Jersey (Reuters) Rapper Ice-T once
gained fame talking about killing cops. Now the controversy
over his latest album has led him to compare himself to a
peace-loving John Lennon.
Surrounded by leopard-print cushions in his penthouse apart-
ment outside New York. the 48-year-old rapper defended a racy
new album cover showing him lying naked in bed, his groin area
covered by his wife's bare legs.
Some music stores will carry a sticker concealing the cover im-
ages of the rapper, whose real name is Tracy Marrow, and his wife
Nicole 'Coco' Marrow, 27, an exotic swimsuit model.
"It's part John Lennon and Yoko Ono. It was art when they
did it and it's where everybody wants to be laid up in bed," he
said, referring to the couple who held "bed-ins" for peace and ap-
peared on the cover of Rolling Stone with a naked Lennon wrapped
around his spouse.
Ice-T is used to controversy. Born in New Jersey and raised in
Los Angeles, he joined a gang before releasing his debut album more
than 20 years ago and gaining a reputation for politically charged
His single 'Cop Killer', which included the lyrics "I'm
about to bust some shots off, I'm about to dust some cops off,"
was cut from an album that was re-released without it
Ice-T said the song dealt with "the vibe at the time" of back-
lashes against police brutality in Los Angeles.
"The old Ice-T was like, 'I will kill everybody,' but
the new Ice-T is kinda like, 'by the way, I'm not gonna
kill you guys,"' he said. "Now it's a different type of an-
ger and aggression."
His latest lyrics comment on the gangsta rap genre he helped
create, including the line: "It's about guns and drugs and bitches
and ho's," from the album's title song.
"I'm not saying it's good or bad, I'm just saying that is what
gangsta rap is about." he said.
Ice-T has spent the past several years playing a detective
in the television series 'Law and Order: Special Victims Unit'
and also stars in his own reality television series teaching prep
school kids how to be real rappers.

erview about his new album, 'Gangsta Rap', in his home
