Presidents from the 20-member
grouping, ended yesterday at the

was the absence of the charis-

by yesterday morning and there

was no immediate explanation
for his not turning up.
Venezuelan Vice-Minister of
Northern American and Multi-
lateral Affairs, Mr. Jorge Valero,
represented President Chavez at
the meeting.
President Jagdeo announced
that he managed to conclude a
number of bilateral discussions

including the Brazilian and
Mexican Presidents.
He said issues dealt with in

Lessons of


fortitude in



HERE is the text of the message by President Bharrat Jagdeo
on the occasion of Phagwah being celebrated today:
"It is with enormous pleasure that I bring Phagwah greet-
ings to all Guyanese, particularly our Hindu brothers and sisters.
Phagwah or Holi, the Hindu Festival of Spring, is derived
from the word 'Phalgun', the name of the month commencing
from mid-February through mid-March, and is the last month
on the Hindu calendar. The first month of the Hindu Year is
'Chaitra', falling in Phalgun.
And so Phagwah or Holi is the start of the Hindu New
Year, an opportune time for all Guyanese from all religious and
ethnic backgrounds to share in the happy spirit of Phagwah, to
reach out and touch, to rekindle the bliss of brotherhood and
sisterhood, and thereby purge feelings of selfishness and en-
This festival brings to light the familiar story of Prahalad,
his father the demon king Hiranyakashyapu, and his sister
We all can draw lessons of'resilience and fortitude froilm
Prahalad as he unflinchingly stayed the course with his devo-
tion and faith. Prahalad's ultimate triumph of good over evil
brings hope to all humankind.committed to a path of peace and
Phagwah is the one event when sprinkling coloured pow-
der ('gulal') or coloured water on each other shatters all barri-
ers of discrimination, so that everyone seems to be the same,
and so universal solidarity is reaffirmed.
Let all Guyanese celebrate this colourful festival of Phagwah
in joyous spirit without any distinction of caste, creed, colour,
race, status, or sex. Let us be determined to build permanent
bonds of friendship and unity to bestow greater stature on
Happy Holi to all Guyanese here and in the Diaspora!"

achievements of the last 20 years
and are convinced of the rel-
evance of the Rio Group as a vi-
able and necessary instrument
for political dialogue in the re-
On this note, the Heads of
State and Government reaf-
firmed the importance of the
group as "a privileged space" for
political consultation and coor-
dination in Latin America and
the Caribbean and renewed their
commitment to the political con-
sensus and principles outlined in
the Veracruz Act of 1999.
The Rio Group leaders also
endorsed the agreement reached
in Guyana by their Ministers of
Foreign Affairs on the strength-
ening of the Rio Group which
paves the way for a more dy-
namic role for the grouping in
political coordination and as a
regional interlocutor with other
regions and countries, as well as
in the principal multilateral fora.
The leaders, according to
the declaration, said "they
recognized that the longstanding
commitment of the Rio Group
to the defence of multilateralism,
based on full respect for the
principles of international law,
was integral to its role and im-
portance as a regional block."
The Turkeyen Declaration
also noted that the Heads of
State and Government
recognized that the growing in-
volvement of the smaller states

of the region in the Rio Group
represents a favourable step to-
wards greater inclusiveness, re-
sulting in a stronger voice at the
global level.
In this regard, the leaders
recognized that increased politi-
cal dialogue and cooperation
among the sub-regions of Latin
America and the Caribbean, in
particular between the countries
of CARICOM and Latin
America, would contribute to
the effective functioning of the
Rio ,Group.
"In an era in which sub-re-
gional integration mechanisms
are increasingly developing
their own parameters of re-
gional and international out-
reach, the Heads of State and
Government underscored the
need for the group to retain its
focus as a regional and extra-re-
gional interlocutor," the
Turkeyen Declaration said.
Heads of State and Govern-
ments of the Rio Group also
highlighted the deepening of re-
gional integration based on prin-
ciples of co-operation, solidar-
ity, as a fundamental means of
reducing poverty and prevent-
ing the negative effects of
globalisation from deepening the
asymmetries which contribute
to economic, social and politi-
cal marginalisation..
"Asymmetries must be
overcome in order to achieve eq-
uitable and just integration, and
concrete and effective mecha-
nisms must be developed to

solve the major inequalities in
our region," the Turkeyen Dec-
laration stated.
The leaders, therefore, noted
the efforts being made to ad-
vance specific and effective mea-
sures and actions within a frame-
work of common policies aimed
at overcoming asymmetries in
regional integration processes.
The leaders also thanked
the Pro Tempore Secretariat of
Guyana for its excellent work in
preparing the Report on the
Treatment of Asymmetries in
the Context of Regional Co-op-
eration, and noted that it can
serve as a basis for promoting
specific and practical measures
for overcoming these asymme-
tries, especially with regard to
the special needs of small vul-
nerable economies of the region.
The leaders also agreed to
keep this important subject on
the agenda of the Rio Group in
order to deepen further discus-
sion and thus achieve balanced
and harmonious regional inte-
The Heads of State and Gov-
ernment also examined the current
situation in Haiti and adopted the
"Declaration of the Rio Group on
the situation in Haiti."
In examining other dimen-
sions of regional security, Heads
of State and Government of the
Rio Group yesterday viewed
with deep concern the contin-
ued perpetration of terrorist
acts in some regions of the

"They strongly rejected ter-
rorism in all its forms and reaf-
firmed that irrespective of its
origin or motivation, the resort
to terrorism is entirely without
The summit also reaffirmed
the leaders' commitment to pre-
vent, combat and eliminate ter-
rorism and its financing by co-
operating extensively, fully re-
specting the mandates of na-
tional and international law, in
particular international human
rights and international humani-
tarian law.
Heads of State and Govern-
ment also agreed that the Rio
Group would continue to
strengthen and expand its con-
tacts with countries and regional
groupings with an action-ori-
ented focus to ensure positive
and advantageous results for the
benefit of participating groups

and also as inputs towards the
amelioration of the international
political, social and economic
The Rio Group leaders also
welcomed the initiative taken
by Venezuela to host the South
American Energy Integration
Summit in April, 2007, as evi-
dence of the strides which have
been made in integration among
the countries of South America
in the area of energy.

Almost all the leaders, in-
cluding the Brazilian and
Chilean Presidents, yester-
day expressed their gratitude
and congratulations to Presi-
dent Jagdeo, the government
and people of Guyana, for the
gracious hospitality extended
to them and the excellent
organisation as well as the
commendable effort on their
part to ensure the success of
the summit.

BBC gag centered on

cover-up in funding probe

By Katherine Baldwin

LONDON, (Reuters) The
BBC said yesterday that a
story about a political fund-
ing scandal it was barred
from running could have
been central to police inquir-
ies into a potential cover-up
involving aides to Prime
Minister Tony Blair.
The British Broadcasting
Corporation said the report,
which was blocked by a court
injunction late on Friday, re-
ferred to an internal e-mail be-
tween "two members of Blair's
inner circle".
E-mail traffic between Blair
aides is of key interest to po-
lice investigating whether offi-
cials hid evidence from them as
they probed the alleged award-

ing of state honours by politi-
cal parties in return for cash.
media reports have said.
The government's top law-
yer, Attorney General Lord Pe-
ter Goldsmith, obtained the
court injunction against the
BBC late on Friday following
a request by police.
Detectives have been in-
vestigating since March last
year whether parties
awarded honours, which
come with seats in
parliament's House of
Lords, in return for loans
but in recent months their
inquiry has widened to in-
clude a potential cover-up.
The investigation has cast
a shadow over Blair's final
months in office. He is ex-
pected to go in or by July this

Two Blair aides were re-
cently arrested on suspicion of
perverting the course of justice
or conspiring to do so.
Blair has been questioned
twice as a witness by police.
Police sought the injunction
against the BBC "because of
their concern that disclosure of
certain information at this stage
would impede their inquiries," a
joint statement from the Met-
ropolitan police and Goldsmith
"The Attorney General

acted in this regard completely
independent of government and
(in) his independent public in-
terest capacity," said the state-
The BBC said its reporting
of the story was a matter of
public interest.
The move sparked specu-
lation among politicians and
lawyers that officers were
planning to bring charges
against one or more indi-
viduals or that police could be
on the verge of wrapping up
their investigation.

Tunisia upholds

sentence against

bomber's uncle
TUNIS, (Reuters) Tunisia's Supreme Court upheld yes-
terday a 20-year jail sentence against the uncle of a sui-
cide bomber for his role in the attack that killed 21 people,
most of them German, court sources said.
Fourteen Germans, five Tunisians and two French were
killed when the suicide bomber rammed a tanker filled with cook-
ing gas into a Jewish shrine in the North African country in
The bombing on the southern island of Djerba, Tunisia's
main tourist destination, was the first attack claimed by al Qaeda
in an Arab country after the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States.
Judge Fethi Ben Youssef upheld the sentence against
Belgacem Nawar, 45, for helping the bomber carry out the at-
tack, his lawyer Samir ben Amor said.
In June, a lower court convicted him for the same charges
and condemned him to 20 years in prison. He pleaded not guilty
before both courts.
"We are sure that he is innocent but we hope for presi-
dential pardon," said Ben Amor.

from militants after the capture of one of the Taliban's
three most senior leaders earlier in the week. The arrest

supremo Mullah Mohammad Omar's inner circle, was dis-
closed to Reuters by several security officials. Ihough it has
not been confirmed by Pakistani authorities.
BAGHDAD A U.S. air strike killed senior insurgents sus-
pected of targeting American helicopters in Iraq. and the
Iraqi government said 39 militants had been killed in vola-
tile western Anbar province in recent righting. The U.S.

Baghdad near the town of Taji. which is home to a major
U.S. air base. It said weaponry, including a vehicle mounted
with anti-aircraf artillery was destroyed.
RIYADH Iranian President Mahmond Ahmadinejad ar-
rived yesterday in Saudi Arabia on his first official trip to
the U.S. ally for talks expected to cover the crises in Leba-
non and Iraq and Tehran's nuclear programme.
Ahmadinejad, whose country could face tougher U.N. sanc-
tions oser its refusal to suspend its nuclear programme, was
met at the airport b) King Abdullah, the Saudi state news
agency said.
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia At least 2.000 Russian protest-
ers yesterday broke through police lines and blocked St
Petersburg's main thoroughfare, in an unusually bold show
of opposition to the Kremlin. The demonstrators, shouting
"Freedom!" and brandishing orange flares, dispersed after
about one hour but earlier police in riot gear and wielding
truncheons tussled with protesters. Police said they had de-
tained dozens of people.
ADDIS ABABA An Ethiopian administrator accused
Eritrean forces of kidnapping a group of five Europeans and
13 Ethiopians in a remote part of Ethiopia, and taking them
to a military camp in neighboring Eritrea. A group of five
Britons, believed to include diplomats from the British em-
bassi in Addis bhaba, went missing on Thursday in a re-
mote, inhospitable area of the Horn of Africa nation.

LONDON Muammar Gaddafi has complained that West-
ern countries have failed to properly compensate Libya for
scrapping its nuclear arms programme and as a result coun-
tries like Iran and North Korea would not follow his lead.
Speaking on the 30th anniversary of his declaration of
Libya as a Jamahiriyah (state of the masses), Gaddafi told
the BBC in an interview broadcast late on Friday that the
West had failed to help transform his nuclear weapons
programme into nuclear power.

Ssistence as a deadline looms for implementing the first
steps of a deal to unwind North Korea's nuclear weapons
programme. Under a breakthrough agreement signed on
Feb. 13, North Korea agreed to move toward nuclear disar-
mament in exchange for aid and the prospect of improved
ties with the United States and other powers.

Venezuela says U.S.

drug accord not needed
CARACAS, (Reuters) Venezuela does not plan to sign
an anti-drug accord with the United Stales, local media
quoted Venezuela's top anti-drug official as saying yester-
day, days after Washington criticized Caracas for failing
to crack down on drug traffickers.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. a close ally of Cuba
who has promised to fight U.S. "impenahsm." cut off coop-
eration with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in 2005.
Accusing the group of spying on him.
The South American nation had promised to renew the ac-
cord on different terms but repeatedly postponed signing it.
"Until now it is not foreseen that we will sign an agree-
ment with them," said Nestor Reverol. president of the Na-
tional Anti-Drug Office, in an interview with the El Universal
newspaper when asked about renewing DEA cooperation.
"It's not necessary to sign an agreement with any particu-
lar country," he said, later adding Venezuela was planning to
sign an anti-drug cooperation accord with Germany.
The State Department said on Thursday drug trafficking
through Venezuela from neighboring Colombia was increasing
because of Venezuelan corruption and lack of cooperation with
counrer-narcolics agencies from other countries.
Washington in 2005 revoked the visas of three Venezuelan
military officers on suspicions they were involved in drug traf-
The criticisms have fuelled an already harsh war of words
in which Chavez frequently attacks the United Stales as an im-
perialist power with a history of meddling in Latin America.
The State Department calls Chavez a menace to re-
gional democracy and accuses him of using the nation's
oil wealth to influence politics in neighboring countries.

Warning for St Lucia govt on China
BRIDGETOWN The opposition St Lucia Labour Party
has called on Prime Minister Sir John Compton's govern-
ment to "speedily end the uncertainty" of the
country's diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of
China following its rise to power at the December 11, 2006
general election.
The SLP, led by former Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony,
said in a press statement that this delay in regularising normal
relations with China, which has an embassy in Castries, was
the direct result of the long and close links that Compton's UWP
had maintained with Taiwan with which it had diplomatic ties
while in government.
While Prime Minister Compton has remained silent on St
Lucia-China relations, the Chinese embassy itself has expressed
concerns over the government's "delayed process" for the sign-
ing of a "memorandum of understanding on continued relations",
as would be normal with a change in administration.
In its statement to the media on Friday, the SLP said
that "it would be a retrograde step if St Lucia were to aban-
don ties with the People's Republic of China, especially
since China is now seen as one of the world's fastest grow-
ing economies and in the context where most of the Car-
ibbean countries have broken ties with Taiwan..."

BOGOTA, (Reuters) Four
police officers and a civilian
were killed yesterday when a
bomb exploded in a southern
city where guerrillas tried to
assassinate the mayor with a
car bomb two days earlier, au-
thorities said.
The attacks came a week
before U.S. President George
W. Bush is due to visit Co-
lombia, Washington's closest
ally in the region. Bogota has
received more than $4 billion
in aid from the U.S. govern-
ment since 2000 to fight
rebels and the drug trade that
makes Colombia the world's
No. 1 cocaine producer.
Police thought they had de-
activated the explosives found
yesterday in a duct at the Neiva
city radio station but the bomb
blew up as they were moving it.
"We are not sure why it ex-
ploded. Everything points to an
accident," Defence Minister
Juan Manuel Santos said on ra-

Rebel attacks are less com-
mon since President Alvaro
Uribe began an offensive to

FARC before, escaped
Thursday's attack when one of
her bodyguards had the suspi-

Editorial Viewpoint

by Rickey Singh
NARCO-TRAFFICKING remains a most challenging
problem for the Caribbean and Latin America region,
including Guyana.
As the problem persists, at varying levels across
borders, it has also become the norm for the United
States authorities to regurgitate in annual reports, real
and perceived problems for more effective responses by
governments. Without, of course, sharing any blame.
It is not that governments, and those of our
Caribbean Community in particular, are either unaware
of or uncommitted to dealing with this horrible crime that,
like an infectious disease, is affecting so many aspects
of our social and economic life.
Rather, it is the little credit, if any at all, often
sandwiched between layers of criticisms that fill the
annual "International Narcotics Control Strategy Report"
which comes from the leading nation in this western
hemisphere that remains the single biggest consumer
of illegal drugs -the United States of America. The latest
such report, released last.month by the U.S. State
Department, is no exception to the norm.'
S No attempt should be made to minimise the
social, economic as well as political problems resulting
from drug trafficking and related crimes of money
laundering and gun-running.
Their harmful effects with corrupt practices by law
enforcement agencies; the crowded prisons, violence
and demeaning behaviour of our young people,
including primary and secondary school students, hit us
with depressing regularity.

A major problem, major source

What is of equal concern is that too often the U.S.
State Department's annual report gratuitously indulge in
language of expediency in the absence of EVIDENCE
- to delink governments, and more specifically top
officials and lawmakers, from facilitating either
production, processing, shipment or distribution of
illegal drugs.
The report would then move with full speed,
consistent with a standard format, to virtually pour scorn
on what such governments are failing and more than
imply complicity with alleged corrupt cops, immigration
and customs officials and even whack away at "weak"
judicial systems.
Not just Guyana, but other CARICOM governments
have had cause to complain against failure and/or
refusal by U.S. authorities to share vital intelligence
information they claim to have and which could be quite
helpful, once verified, for effective and appropriate
actions to significantly curb the flow of illegal drugs like
cocaine and marijuana to the U.S. and Europe via
Caribbean air and sea routes.
This, by no means, should justify the Guyana
Government, or any of its CARICOM partners, from failing
to actively and systematically pursue policies and
programmes that could significantly curb the illicit drug
For example, the foot-dragging by the
government in relation to any visible effective
implementation of the 2005 "National Drug Strategy
Master Plan", to which the U.S. State Department
report has also made reference in chronicling the
deficits against the Jagdeo administration's
responses to the narco-trafficking.
Countries like Guyana do not, of course, have the
resources to circulate anti-narcotics reports that could
also expose the extent of illegal consumption of drugs
in the U.S.; the level of related corruption and abuses that

this horrendous crime has on its law enforcement and
judicial arms; or how its private sector moguls are also
linked to the drug cartels and barons who exploit
Caribbean jurisdictions in accumulating wealth with their
evil trade.
This is a factor that even sections of the
Caribbean media often fail to focus on. More attention
should be paid to the realities of life in the major
centres of importation and consumption of illegal
drugs, namely the U.S. and Europe with the former in
the lead.
Without divulging sensitive intelligence information/
strategies, there needs to be more transparency
in bilateral and multilateral cooperation arrangements
between CARICOM and the U.S.
It could help to disabuse feelings abroad in our
region that the cooperation and assistance flowing
from Washington administrations are more geared to
satisfy America's needs than responding to specific
social and economic initiatives to enable significant
reduction, if not throttling, of narco-trafficking criminal

HEMISPHERIC security with a special focus on countering
terrorism, reducing poverty and other major social issues that
contribute to political stability and undermine good gover-
nance, would have formed part of yesterday's Rio Group Sum-
mit in the Guyanese capital Georgetown.
We should know by today if not by late last night. the key
decisions reached from the official communique expected from the
20-nation summit of Latin American and Caribbean leaders, whose
deliberations had been preceded by a series of technical and minis-
terial meetings.
The Rio Summit was concluding in Georgetown five days ahead
of President George Bush's one-week tour of five Latin American
states starting on Thursday, March 8.
The journey would take him to Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Gua-
temala and Uruguay with favourite topics of his like "war on ter-
rorism", "democracy" and "social justice" on his work agenda.
It is ironic, though by no means surprising, that President Bush
would want to discuss coordinated responses in the battle against
"terrorism" while his administration maintains a policy of benign
neglect, to say the least, in relation to one of the most notorious
terrorists currently in the U.S. and wanted for the single most hor-
rific terrorist act in the modern history of the Caribbean.
The wanted man is the Cuban emigre, Luis Posada Carriles, who
has been implicated as playing a key role in the 1976 bombing of a
Cubana passenger aircraft off Barbados killing all 73 people on
Two. years ago CARICOM made a passionate call for Posada
to bb brought to justice for his,role in the Cubana.tragedy, consis-
tent with the-war against terrorism..Both. Cuba and Venezuela are
also still waiting on the U.S. government for the extradition of Posada
to face trial for that unprecedented criminal act in Caribbean air
Now, as arrangements were being finalised for last week's Rio
Group Summit and this week's five-nation tour of Latin America
by President Bush, an important development took place in a Mi-
ami court that further exposes the hypocrisy and contempt of the
administration in Washington in its "war on terrorism" and observ-
ing the rule of law.
The development was last Tuesday's sentencing by a Miami
district court judge of a Cuban-born university professor and his
wife to five and three-year prison terms respectively for admitting
to "spying" for Cuba.
Eleven days earlier, another Cuban, Luis Posada Carriles, who
should be facing trial for causing 73 deaths by terrorism, was in-
stead informed of charges of "lying" to U.S. immigration. The con-
trast perhaps represents the latest example of the hypocrisy, the

moral inconsistency, of the Washington administration.
This hypocrisy is well located in President Bush's policy and
related attitudes of United States authorities in dealing with the docu-
mented case of the anti-Castro terrorist, Posada for his involvement
in the Cubana tragedy off Barbados.



More, later, of the now 77-year-old Posada. First to the "spy-
ing" 61-year old professor Carlos Alvarez of Florida International
He admitted in court to sharing, in collaboration with his wife
SElsa, information to Cuban intelligence on Cuban .exiles living in
Florida. Alvarez told Judge Michael Moore that he was once part
of "an underground movement" to topple the government of Presi-
dent Fidel Castro. Later, however, he chose to be "an advocate for
dialogue" with the intention to help improve relations between Cuba
and the U.S.
According to information provided the prosecution by the
political and intelligence arms of the United States govern-
ment, Alvarez had used the codename "David" while he and
his 56-year-old wife Elsa (codenamed Deborah) were engaged
in sharing information with Cuban intelligence to "influence
In sentencing them, judge Moore correctly noted that "a good
motive is never an excuse for criminal conduct..." Well, Posada
and his collaborators in crime must be laughing.
They would include officials of the Ronald Reagan administra-
tion, and also significant roles played by U.S. Central Intelligence
personnel who had trained, bankrolled and protected Posada over

the years of sustained anti-Castro activities as documented in books.
magazines and newspaper articles published in and out of the U.S.
and found in archives.
Even before being facilitated in escaping from prison in Panama
for his involvement in the attempted assassination of President Fi-
del Castro in that Central American state in 2004 during an official
visit. Posada had earlier been assisted by U.S. intelligence person-
nel in Caracas and anti-Castro Venezuelan elements to escape from
jail while awaiting trial for his role in the 1976 Cubana tragedy.
Perhaps for that Cubana bombing tragedy, Posada also had "a
good motive", to use words of judge Moore, since it was consis-
tent with his driven CIA-sponsored commitment to get rid of a
"dangerous enemy" of the Empire in the Western Hemisphere -
namely the Castro government. That very government in Havana
with which the other Cuban emigre, Alvarez, was an intelligence
Posada's "good motive" in his campaign against "Castrosim"
had previously engaged him as also documented in bombing
targets inside Cuba, that resulted in deaths, injuries and destruc-
tion, Also, as an active collaborator with the CIA and the anti-
Sandinistas "Contras" when he operated out of El Salvador under
the codename "Ramon Medina" to help destabilise the then gov-
ernment in Nicaragua..
Now, however, while the governments in Havana and Caracas,
as well as CARICOM have been calling for him to face trial for his
murderous role in the Cubana bombing tragedy, Posada is waiting
to answer charges in a Texas court. But surprise, surprise, not for
ANY of his terroristic activities.
SNo way. Simply for "lying" to immigration officials in his quest
to become a citizen of the "greatest democracy"--U.S, ---that has
been his sanctuary, on and off, for a-pretty long time. .
It seems that in Bush's America, a Cuban emigre who engages
in confessed intelligence collaboration with Castro's Cuba must pay
the price, along with his wife, of imprisonment for their unlawful
"spying" activities But the other Cuban emigre, Posasa, a well docu-
mented terrorist whose criminal activities have wasted many lives,
can simply be prosecuted for "lying" in order to secure U.S. citi-
zenship and be at home with members of his family
What utter hypocrisy, what deep contempt for our Caribbean
governments calling for Posada to be tried for the Cubana
tragedy. What mockery of the rule of law and Bush's own "war on
Posada is due to face a jury on May 11 on charges of ille-
gal entry into the U.S. (which one of them?) and "lying" to
immigration personnel in his effort to secure U.S. citizenship.
What a political show U.S.-style!

The great value of this
summit is that it provided an
opportunity for a small but im-
portant number of Heads of
Government from the Caribbean
and Latin America to talk infor-
mally and to exchange ideas
about how the relationship be-
tween Latin American and Car-
ibbean countries could be deep-
ened in their joint interest.
Meeting at the political level
is a necessary first step for cre-
ating the framework for an eco-
nomic relationship that could

benefit the people of Latin
America and the Caribbean,
through trade and investment.
But, at the practical level it is
the business communities in
each of these countries that
could give flesh to the bones of
such an economic relationship.
In turn, they will need an en-
abling environment which must
include the establishment of di-
rect transportation arrange-
ments, access to financing, and
a facility for English, Spanish
and Portuguese.
The Rio Group is primarily
an organ of political consulta-

tion; it does not have-a mandate
to institute arrangements for
economic integration, and a
summit meeting of only some
Heads of Government, however
influential they may be, would
be reluctant to do so.
Further, the group does not
have a permanent secretariat and
its work between meetings is
carried out by the country to
which the Chairmanship falls.
However, there are other
organizations to which members
of the Rio Group belong who
have the capacity to initiate ar-
rangements for structured eco-

nomic relations between Latin
American and Caribbean coun-
tries. CARICOM and the Cen-
tral American Free Trade Agree-
ment (CAFTA) countries, and
CARICOM and Mercosur could
formally pursue discussions that
might have arisen from informal
consultations between the Heads
of Government.
It is to be hoped that, arising
from this meeting, the Rio Group
will take on the role of promot-
ing Latin American and Caribbean
economic integration through in-
stitutions such as the Inter-
American Development Bank.
In any event, Guyana did
well to carry the work of the
Rio Group during its period of
Chairmanship. It has also done

doing so, to act as a bridge be-

A MYSTERY fire last night
broke out at 304 Lamaha
Park, Block "PP", East La
Penitence, Georgetown,
quickly engulfing the one-flat
two-bedroom house and re-
ducing it to rubble in less
than half an hour.
Nothing was saved in the
inferno. Cash and everything
else went up in flames, the fam-
ily said.
The fire started around
20:30h and the fire department
was summoned and responded

at the swiftness with which the
building was destroyed, said it
was already burnt flat before
the fire tender arrived.
Despite gallants efforts by
public-spirited neighbours to
render assistance, little success
was achieved since there was no
water on hand to put the flames
out, and the sand buckets used
proved a poor substitute.
Now homeless are Carol

Rose and her four children aged
11, 10, seven and two years.
Rose said no one was at
home when the fire started as
she and the children had gone
across the road at a neighbour's.

her house was on fire, she said
that with weakened knees, she
ran across to her yard, only to
see the flames billowing from

through the windows; from un-

The woman recalled that
she saw one door open, but
there was no way anyone could
have entered the building since
the flames were raging wildly.
Rose said it could not have
been an electrical fire, since
power was not connected to the
building. Nor could it have been
the stove, since she was not
cooking at that time.
She said there was a wall
lamp illuminating the building.

THE 19th summit of the Rio
Group ended yesterday at the
Guyana International Con-
ference Centre, after delib-
erations and a caucus to chart
a plan for expansion and pres-
ervation of the 20-member
The Government Informa-
tion Agency (GINA) said the
summit was characterized by the
issuance of the Turkeyen Dec-
laration that outlined the major
issues to be addressed to further
development and integration of
the group's members.
The agency said a meeting
between Guyana and Chile high-
lighted the need to advance so-
cial and human issues, specifi-
cally with countries that have
asymmetries and inequalities.
Chile President Michelle
Bachelet, the first female leader

of the country, reported that the
meeting focused on social and
human issues which plague de-
velopment in Latin America and
the Caribbean. President
Bharrat Jagdeo has been advo-
cating for these issues to be ad-
dressed, President Bachelet said.
The Presidents sought com-
monality on how both countries
can collaborate to access funding
for the proposed programmes to
combat the issues identified, the
Chilean President said.
GINA said that ii relation
to CARICOM, President
Bachelet noted that there are
some specific cooperation
programmes ongoing between
Chile and regional bodies.
She noted the interest ex-
pressed by some CARICOM
countries to integrate the Span-

the Veterinary Medical Advi-

concerns when they voted in
September to reject approval of

Yet the Post quoted experts
as saying the FDA was moving
towards approval anyway, over-
riding the advice of the panel, the
American Medical Association
and other health groups.
The Post said the FDA was
being pressured to approve the
drug because of an internal guid-
ance document called "Guidance
for Industry #152" on how to
weigh threats to human health
from proposed new animal

rule makes it difficult for the

to human mortality from the
use of these drugs in animals,
we don't think you should pre-

Belongia as saying.
"But do we really want to
drive more resistance genes into
the human population? It's

Rationalising the



THE human mind is never at
There are external (awake)
and internal (asleep) stimuli.
Within seconds, the mind goes
from one subject to another and
from one level to another. In
wakefulness in human beings,
the thinking power becomes
even more active from
brawn power to brain power.
The term "rationalization"
in the dictionary is often defined
as "reasoning" or "explaining".
This may not be fully correct as
"explaining" may not be the
same as "reasoning".
This paper will define "ra-
tionalizing" as "justifying". Un-
like explaining which may offer
several points of view and ob-
jects, "rationalizing" here is
where the speaker attempts to
justify his own argument or
behaviour. It is therefore not ob-
jective but subjective.
As long as man has had the
ability to reason, from time im-
memorial, he has been using



"Never reason for what you do not
know. If you do you will soon believe
what is utterly against reason."

reasoning to justify his actions.
The basis upon which this is
done is his "ego", his self-pro-
tecting and self-esteem. An in-
dividual has the strong need for
self-preservation. The ego has
been with us and developed
from childhood. Those of us
who are more insecure mpre
have the need to protect that
ego, especially if it had been
abused as a child.
There are three main levels
of rationalization. The first is to
blame others when events go
wrong in our lives. The next is
to blame things and events as-
sociated with the person or the
incident a divorce, failing an
examination, etc. The third is
to blame our self, followed by

(a) Blaming others is a way
of protecting the ego. Blaming
the person directly involved is
the first step in failing an exami-
nation; it is the teacher in an ex-
amination; it is the spouse in a
divorce. It is often what he did
or did not error of commis-
sion, error of omission.
(b) While still blaming oth-
ers, there is onset of the next
step. We then tend to blame
things or events associated
with the person or event. In
the case of divorce we may
blame it on financial problems,
in-laws, etc. In case of failing
the examination it may be the
type of test, multiple choice or
essay or matching time to

study. At this point the mind
goes searching to find reasons
that may be the cause of the
problem. The mind even be-
comes creative in doing so.
This makes the ego feel good
and this matters a great deal, to
alleviate the pain.
(c) The third level is to
search the self to find possible
causes. "Maybe I should
have..." "Maybe I should not
have..." The degree of self-
blame depends on the level of
self-esteem. Those with low
self-esteem tend to dwell more
on the self-blame. This may
reach unhealthy proportions.
Those with strong egos will give
little or no blame to self. A con-
structive and realistic self-ex-


amination is what is best needed
to deal with any such problem.
While it may be difficult to
change others or the circum-
stances, it may be much easier
to understand ourselves, adapt
or change our perception and
Guilt is often associated
with self-blame. Where it is not
obsession or debilitating, it may
be a good censor to thoughts,
feelings and behaviour that need
examination or change.
When we blame others, we
often look to others who will
support us in our rationaliz-
ing. We tend to turn to close
friends and relatives who may
agree with us even if we are
wrong a principle known
as Groupthink. We then stay

away from those who dis-
agree with us. The rationaliz-
ing then becomes nore in-
grained and others may con-
firm our rationalizing and even
extend it. offering more "good
reason". The more the better.
If we were once in doubt, we
are now convinced inno-
cent or not.
The next step in the pro-
cess is to move to extremes and
even become bitter. In the case
of the examinations we may
drop the course. This may be
even after just one examination.
In the loss of a job, we may
seek revenge of one kind or an-
other. While doing so the ratio-
nalizing continues each step of
the way.
In the constructive self ex-
amination we adapt, adjust and

instances we become bitter,

What's wrong with Italy? '9

THE most extreme diagnosis
of Italy's problem was offered
by journalist Peter Popham
in the Independent.
He blamed it all on the
Vatican: "Imagine that Hitler did

not die in his bunker in 1945 but
instead cut a deal with the new
West German government, giv-
ing him continued sovereignty
over a small patch of Berlin -
and continued intellectual hege-

mony over the millions he had
brainwashed during the previ-
ous decade....Italy's Vatican
problem is a lot like that, with
the difference that the Church
has been wielding its mind-con-

trol for nearly two millennia."
The trigger for this extraor-
dinary outburst was the week-
long political crisis that nearly
brought down Prime Minister
Romano Prodi's centre-left gov-
ernment, Italy's 61st since the
Second World War. Yet Popham
is not anti-Catholic. It's just
that, like most people who
spend a lot of time in Italy, he
has simultaneously fallen in
love with the country and ut-
terly lost patience with it.
It's an affliction he shares
with a great many Italians: no
country except Argentina
spends more time debating what
is wrong with it. He blamed the
Vatican on this occasion because
the crisis was provoked by a
government plan to legalise
"civil unions" (marriages by an-
other name) even for gays,
which greatly annoyed the
Catholic Church. But it's more
complicated than that.
The vote that Prodi's govern-
ment lost was actually on a pro-
posal to leave 1,900 Italian troops
in Afghanistan until 2011 and to
double the size of an American
military base outside Vicenza.
Both projects are very unpopu-
lar in Italy, but they were part of
the deal that created the nine-
party coalition behind Prodi's
government, and only two sena-
tors from the far left.defected in
the key vote on 21 February.
The government would still
have won the vote if senator-for-
life Giulio Andreotti had not un-
expectedly voted against it. But
the 87-year-old Andreotti,
seven times prime minister and
often known as the "Prince of
Darkness," is a strong supporter
of NATO and the American al-
liance, so why would he vote
against that bill? Because it was
going to be so close that his sur-
prise "no" vote could bring
Prodi's government down.
Why would he want to do
that? Andreotti has always been
very close to both the Catholic
Church and the Mafia, but on
this occasion it was the former

tie that mattered. The Vatican
wanted to kill the "civil union"
proposal, which required killing
Prodi's government. Andreotti
just seized the opportunity that
presented itself. It worked, too:
a week later Prodi managed to re-
vive his coalition government, but
this time their agreed programme
does not include the "civil union"
The normally judicious Pe-
ter Popham was so irked by this
that he implicitly compared the
Pope to Hitler, but it is non-
sense to blame all of Italy's ills
on the Vatican. The Catholic
Church used to have huge clout
in Italian politics, but that is be-
cause almost all Italians used to
be devout Catholics. It's still a
bit weird to have a tiny sover-
eign state ruled by a foreigner in
the middle of your own capital
city, but the Vatican today has
no more influence on politics in
Italy than the evangelical
churches have in the United
States. (But no less, either.)
Most Italians would agree
that there is something wrong
with their country, but it's not the
ChurCh that bothers them. The
stagnant economy makes matters
worse even Spain will over-
take Italy in per capital income in
a couple of years but there is
an underlying sense of frustration
that permeates Italian life.
The Byzantine bureaucracy
and the ubiquitous corruption
are a big part of the problem.
Getting a job usually depends
on what group, party or family
you belong to, not on your abili-
ties, which is hugely frustrating.
The core problem is that
Italy is not really a modern so-
ciety at all.
For almost forty years af-
ter 1945, while the rest of Eu-
rope was growing and changing
very fast, Italy grew but didn't
change, because politics and all
of society were frozen in a
deeply conservative and pro-
foundly corrupt pattern. In or-
der to keep the huge Commu-
nist party from winning power

and taking Italy out of NATO,
the Christian Democratic party
had to be kept in power perma-
nently and it was, thanks to
foreign money and foreign intel-
ligence services, to its alliance
with the Catholic Church, and
to its other alliance with the
That system ended fifteen
years ago when the Christian
Democrats imploded in a bliz-
zard of corruption scandals and
Communism simultaneously
went out of fashion, but Italians
have a lot of lost time to make
Moreover, the decision to
swap the lira for the euro was a
disaster for Italy, because it lost
the ability to remain competi-
tive by continually devaluing its
currency. Italian politics are still
poisonous, the justice system is
a joke, and the efforts at reform
are endlessly sabotaged by the
beneficiaries of the current state
of affairs.
But that is about what
you'd expect at this stage of the
process of modernisation, be-
cause it IS a process, and it
takes time. Spain is about
thirty years into a similar pro-
cess, dating from the death of
Franco and the end of fascism,
and it is thriving at every level.
Italy is fifteen years in, and feel-
ing the strain. But it will prob-
ably get there in the end.

8th Business Forum of

Greater Caribbean to support

trade among ACS countries

By Ruben Silie

SINCE its inception, the As-
sociation of Caribbean States
(ACS) has placed emphasis
on the issue of trade as one
of the more dynamic themes,
and in fact, it can be said that
the initial leitmotif that en-
couraged the countries of the
region to come together un-
der this scheme was precisely
the issue of trade.
Nevertheless, the countries
comprising the ACS have been
restricted in the advancement of
negotiations to establish their
own trade area, since each
group of countries comes from
a very specific trade tradition,
which to some extent, having
operated in a particular way for
so many years, limits their pos-
sibilities of opening up to new
markets, even if it is with their
closest neighbours on the lit-
For historic reasons, the
earliest trade links were con-
fined to direct relationships
with the metropolises, which is
understandable given the mo-
nopolistic and concentration
mechanisms applied during this
period of Caribbean history.
However, that initial stage, led
by European countries, was fol-
lowed by the predominance of
the United States of America
over any other trade destination.
That northern power's domi-
nance explains why trade with
and from the United States ac-
counts for approximately eighty
per cent of total trade within the
It could be said that the
Caribbean has always (though
not entirely) been under the

control of one authority or an-
other, commercially speaking.
Its political independence has
not allowed the region to redi-
rect the focus of its trade rela-
tions from a perspective that re-
flects its own interests and the
interests of its neighbours.
The link with the North
American market is so strong
for ACS countries that the fluc-
tuations in their own market
follow the demand generated in
the North.
At the core of all of this is
the regional economic
liberalisation process in which
international organizations
played a crucial role, with the
International Monetary Fund
and the World Bank leading the
structural adjustment
programmes that give a new
shape to our countries' econo-
mies and trade schemes.
However, the mechanism of
subjection of these economies
to the United States economy
does not function solely because
of geopolitical reasons (al-
though this factor lies at the
heart of the current hegemonic
scheme), but it also influences
a clearly defined policy regard-
ing differential treatment for ex-
ports from that group of coun-
It must be borne in mind
that the numerical growth of the
Greater Caribbean diaspora in
the territory of the United
States of America is seen as a
new factor for attracting ex-
ports toward that country. This
is influenced by the growing
demands for ethnic products by
the migrant population in that
country, as well as by the fi-
nancial sector that is becoming

stronger as a result of remit-
When the governments de-
cided to come together in the
ACS, they thought that this as-
sociation could serve as a
mechanism to give a new direc-
tion to their trade relations, giv-
ing greater consideration to the

interest of the countries within
the group, or at least reversing
the historically inherited order.
With respect to increasing
intra-ACS trade flows, one of
the initiatives undertaken has
been the Business Forum of the
Greater Caribbean, whose eighth
instalment will be held in

The Greater

Caribbean This Week

March, in Panama City,
The Business Forum of the
Greater Caribbean has undoubt-
edly played a proactive role,
seeking to create a business en-
vironment that would help im-
prove the competitiveness of
the companies belonging to
ACS states, regardless of each
state's level of development or
export strategies. Every year,
business meetings are held as

part of the activities developed
during the said forum and they
have been giving entrepreneurs
an opportunity to expand their
businesses and make them grow.
The statistics from recent fo-
rums have proven this and com-
panies are deciding more and
more to exhibit their products at
that event, which has facilitated
the insertion of new products

Former senior civil servant

killed in bus accident

A PROMINENT senior citi-

tragically killed after being
struck down by a speeding
mini-bus at the corner of
Fern Drive and Aubrey

Ruimveldt Park, Georgetown.
Dead is Ernest Fitzroy

The retired Chief Manage-

Public Justice

PEACE is simply defined as
"freedom from war or strife".
Technically, peace in this
sense can be imposed by the
sword or the barrel of a gun.
Marxist and totalitarian govern-
ments have managed to have
"peace" for years. Yet the col-
lapse of Marxism in 1989
showed that coercion will not
bring peace or sustainable devel-
opment. A structure for growth
and social development must be
in place that will allow for a rea-
sonable degree of freedom and
The Biblical foundation for
social peace is justice. This di-
vine concern is so serious that
in the Old Testament, the word
Justice and related terms are

used about 500 times and about
200 times in the New Testa-
ment. It is not easy to define
Justice, but its essence can be
inferred from the Old Testament
concept of lex talionis or the fa-
mous "eye for an eye, tooth for
a tooth" dictum (Ex. 21:24).
The term justice "suggests
primarily man's conduct to-
wards others, especially in mat-
ters of legal or personal rights".
(Carl F.H. Henry, God, Revela-
tion and Authority).
It is external. It deals with
laws governing relationship and
the use or things that order life
in society. God insists that gov-
ernors are to rule with justice
(Ps.89:14). Such a command is
not a contradiction to His na-

ture as merciful.
Justice has three essential di-
mensions. Firstly, it deals with
equitable and fair legislation for
every one. This is important for
evangelicals to note, since in a
pluralistic society, the challenge
is that one has no legal right to
impose his religion on others.
How then can evangelicals be
faithful to the command of evan-
gelizing the lost and at the same
time observe the command to do
Firstly, the Christian should
so live their lives by both word
and deed in a way that pro-
motes a process of inculturating
Christian values in society. The
attempt must not be to demon-
ize or discriminate against oth-

ers on the basis of their religion.
To do this would be promoting
the very injustice Christ abhors.
Rather the focus should be on
living the Christian life so effec-
tively that those who are oth-
erwise persuaded will be con-
verted, not by unjust force, but
by our Christ likeness.
Secondly, the Christian leg-
islator must seek the denomina-
tors of common grace for all
mankind and ground their ac-
tions on them. The second di-
mension of justice is that it is
concerned with remedy. Due
process is crucial in administer-
ing justice. If the remedial pro-
cess is violated, then there can
be no ample protection for the
rights of a person.
The penal code of a nation
may consider rape as a crime
but if a poor victim has no
means to hire or avail the ser-
vices of a good lawyer, or if the
accused has the means to bribe


BB^ri c
*.^ .^rl-i ^

a judge, then there will be a mis-
carriage of justice. The crucial
question then would be: Is the
remedy available and affordable
to the poorest of the poor? If
this is not the case, then that so-
ciety is unjust. God commands
that justice be given to the af-
flicted and to slaves (Job 36:6;
1 Chr. 18:4).
Thirdly, justice includes
penalty. For justice to exist, the
penalty of law must be equally

I applied to the guilty,
whether he/she is rich or
Spoor, and not dependent
on whom one knows or
does not know. Moreover,
it must be;commensurate
to the offence.
It must also be noted
that because God requires
everything to be just, then
justice is a standard which
IwS can be applied not only to
people. Even weights and
measures must be just, i.e., they
must be fair (Lev.19:36).
The responsibility to do
justice is not only for
evangelicals. It is for all of us
who are God's creation. If we
as sons and daughters of
Guyana do not give justice to
our own people, we cannot ex-
pect foreigners to give justice to
our people in the Diaspora.
Charity and justice begin
at home.

BRAZIL President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva surrounded by media personnel after the summit yesterday

'Altime to share

Reepu Daman Persaud
PRESIDENT of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, Pandit
Reepu Damnan Persaud, in his Phagwah message, said the
festival is "truly a time to share in the true spirit of Sewa
and wherever there is hate replace it with love and take
all steps necessary to reconcile differences and construct
a united society."
"Holi transcends all barriers. There is complete equality.
The Rantg or colours which smear us and make us virtually uni-
dentifiabl4, removing every distinction even between Kings and
subjects, emphasise the oneness of humanity or the famous
Hindu perception Vasudeva Kutumbakam Humanity is one
family", said.
Mr. Persaud noted that an air of joy pervades the home
and the family at this time with children touching the feet of
their parents, spraying them with perfume and placing Abrak
and powder on their faces and squirting on their clothing Abeer
or coldured liquid.
"Parents bless their children and wish them not only Holika
Shubh Kaamnanyea, but a bright and prosperous future. Greet-
ings are extended to relatives and friends squirting abeer and
powdering them."
Persaud stressed that Holi does not license anyone to reck-"
lessly and wantonly drench passers-by or to barge into people's
homes and splash water on'the occupants
"These acts are against the spirit of our lovely Holi festival
and should not form part of the Phagwah celebration.
Celebrate and do so happily but do remember the sig-
nificance of the festival which spends a clear signal of re-
spect for human rights so bravely fought for and won by

Bush gets first-hand look at tornado damage

By Tabassum Zakaria

ENTERPRISE, Ala., (Reuters)
- President George W. Bush
got a first-hand look yester-
day at the damage from
deadly tornadoes in the U.S.
South, saying that while
buildings could be rebuilt the
biggest impact was shattered
Bush, who was heavily
criticized for his
administration's slow re-
sponse to Hurricane Katrina
in 2005, got a view of the re-
gion by helicopter and walked
over glass-strewn rubble at
Enterprise High School where
eight students were killed
when the storms struck on
Enterprise was in the area of

Alabama that was hardest hit by
tornadoes that killed at least 20
people in three states 10 in
Alabama, nine in Georgia, and
one in Missouri. Hundreds of
houses were destroyed or badly
"Today I have walked
through devastation that is hard
to describe," Bush said after
touring the school, including the
hallway where the students
were killed.
He pointed to the twisted
metal remains of the science
wing where 100 students were
trapped but survived. "One
hundred kids got out of here
alive, which is a miracle," he
Bush then flew to the town
of Americus, Georgia, where he
hugged and chatted with resi-

dents gathered outside a house
where two people were killed.
A school bus with its win-
dows shattered stood on the
side of the street, where trees
still lay on top of houses and
yards were strewn with bricks,
glass and wooden planks, testi-
fying to the storm's power.
"The roof came off, the ceil-
ing is coming down, the tree is
down, all the windows and ev-
erything is broken," said Tamiko
Blanks, a resident on the street.

Bush approved a disaster

Enterprise is located, which al-

David Paulison, director of

to assess the tornado damage
quickly to make sure that local

with the disaster.
Paulison said he had called
state officials shortly after the
tornadoes struck, started mov-

"THE People's National Congress Reform (PNCR) expresses sincere good wishes to the
Hindu community of Guyana in particular, and Guyanese in general, on the auspicious
occasion of the celebration of the festival of Phagwah in Guyana.
As the celebrated Indian National Kulapati Vani wrote many years ago, "festivals are gather-
ings for refreshing the spirit and enjoying life". We urge all Guyanese to use this occasion to re-
fresh their spirit and enjoy life, and to participate fully in this colourful festival and enjoy the rich
elements of our religious and cultural diversity.
We are conscious, also, that our spirits are becoming increasingly sullen and sour in the brood-
ing darkness that now engulfs our land. Violent crime, pervasive joblessness, creeping despotism,
and deepening poverty, stalk our land; partisanship, discrimination and executive lawlessness com-
pound bad governance; our economy and society are in tatters and our nation can only see dark
clouds on the horizon.
We are heartened, however, by the true meaning of this festival which has not only a secular
significance of fertility, rebirth, renewal and regeneration, but an important religious moral. The
religious significance of Holi lies in the conquest of good over evil, manifested in the destruction
by PHAHALADA of his demonic father KING HIRHNYAKASHIPU.
Several demons are now abroad in our embattled land, and as we urge the Guyanese
people to appreciate the spiritual significance in this festival, we also urge them to brace
themselves against the many evils that are in our midst and resolve, at this juncture, to
take steps to end these calamities that now bedevil our country.
Remember the poor
C.N. Sharma
LEADER C.N. Sharma and executive member of the Justice for all Party has joined in
I extending joyous Holi greetings to the entire nation.
At this time when Hindus celebrate their New Year, he said people should herald the
event with remembering the poor and the unfortunate.
According to Mr. Sharma, the triumph of good over evil in the saga of Prahalad over his
father King Hiranyakashipu proves that God is watching over us.
He said the entire nation must unite at this time when good triumphs over evil
Sand help to eradicate the problems faced by the nation.

The following are matters which are recommended for
bringing to the notice of the Public as often as possible.

(1) No contributions should be deducted from the wages/salaries
of insured persons under 16 years or 60 years and over.
However, the employer must still pay 1.53% of the employee's
insurable earnings to cover them for industrial benefits.

(2) If an insured person is working for more than one employer in
any period, arrangements must be made for the Principal
Employer to be responsible for deducting and remitting NIS
contributions on behalf of the employee.

(3) BEWARE of the contribution schedule used .to remit
contributions for the weekly or monthly paid employees. It
does make a difference to the number of contributions

(4) If a monthly employee works for a period that is less than the full
month, the period worked within the month must be stated.

(5) If you receive an annual contribution statement where your
social security number is incorrect, that is, the number begins
with the letter Z or I or otherwise does not agree with the
number on the Social Security Card in your possession, you
have a registration problem and need to contact the nearest
NIS Office to resolve it.

(6) Any person who knowingly make a false statement or false
representation for the purpose of obtaining any payment for
himself or for some other person under the National Insurance
and Social Security Act, 1969, or produces or furnishes any
document or information which 3 knows to be false in a
material particular, renders hims( 7 liable to prosecution.

and regulations

LONDON, England (Reuters)
- Format and regulations of
the cricket World Cup start-
ing in the West Indies on
March 13:
*lst round. The ninth edi-
tion of the World Cup will be
contested by 16 teams, the
most ever. In the first round
they are divided into four
groups of four teams and play
each other once. The top two
from each group qualify for the
super eight.
*Super eight. The winners
and runners-up from the four
groups will play each of the
other teams except the team
which advanced from their own
group. The top four qualify for
the semi-finals.

The winners meet in the final in

ward only the points gained in
the group stage against the
other qualifier.
*Key rules:
If the scores are equal, the
match is tied regardless of the num-
ber of wickets which have fallen.
Each match comprises two
sessions of 3-1/2 hours each
with a 45-minute interval. First

straight red card-in the 86th
minute for raising his hand at
Xabi Alonso.
'Today's a massive result
for us," manager Alex Ferguson
told Sky Sports, recalling that
United also scored a winner in
the final two minutes last Sat-
urday at Fulham.
"You need that bit of luck
to win a championship,
there's no question about that,
and I think we've got it in the
last two weeks," he said.
The United manager said
England striker Wayne Rooney,
who made way for O'Shea in
the 74th minute, would be as-
sessed today after suffering a
knee injury.
Liverpool coach Rafael
Benitez was clearly frustrated
by the outcome.
"It's unbelievable how we
lost this match because we con-
trolled the game and deserved to
win it," Benitez told the club's
Web site (
"We controlled the attacking
side of the game and had many
corners and free kicks, but in foot-
ball you sometimes have luck and
sometimes have bad luck."

Chelsea, who have a home
game with United scheduled on
April 15, kept the title race
alive by winning at Fratton
Park. Drogba celebrated his Af-
rican Footballer-of-the-Year
award in midweek with his 29th
goal of the season, a superb vol-
ley from a long Ashley Cqle
cross from the left.
However, it needed a bril-
liant one-handed save from
keeper Petr Cech to deny
Pompey substitute Andy Cole
a headed equaliser before Kalou
slid home Chelsea's second.

Coach Jose Mourinho
wondered how many points
Chelsea would have had with-
out Cech being out for three
months after suffering a frac-
tured skull in October.
"It's a question without an
answer but we could answer
it by saying this is a goalkeeper
who gives you 10-15 points a
season," he told Sky Sports.
"He's the best."


Though he respected
United, Mourinho said: "Our
job is to fight them, to keep
winning matches, to win the
next two and get back again to
a six-point gap and keep the
pressure on them."
Arsenal returned to winning
ways after defeats in the FA
Cup, Champions League and
Sunday's tumultuous League-
Cup final with Chelsea, which
led to three of Arsene Wenger's
players getting banned.
Gilberto converted a 51st
minute penalty and fellow Brazil-
ian Julio Baptista hit the other be-
fore a late own goal by Spain
midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Lewis fit to bowl in

England's first practice

By Mark Meadows

STUBBS, St Vincent
(Reuters) Pace bowler Jon
Lewis was fit enough to bowl
several overs yesterday in
England's first practice ses-
sion in the West Indies ahead
of the World Cup.
Lewis, 31, injured his ankle
in Australia and has not had any
real bowling practice since a tri-
series match with New Zealand
two months ago. His selection
in the World Cup squad was
subject to fitness.
The team flew in on Friday,
changing flights at Barbados and
travelling on a small propeller
plane to land at St Vincent's
tiny airport. Yesterday. a light
aircraft crashed not far froin the
runway. All four occupants es-
caned shaken but unscathed.

.lames Anderson. who also
missed the back end of
England's victorious Iri-serics
campaign, bowled some overs
from a shortened run-up alter
shaking off a back problem.
Kevin Pietersen was the
first to bat in the nets after
fully recovering from a frac-

tured rib sustained in the
first tri-series match in Aus-
tralia in January.
Captain Michael Vaughan,
working his way back to fitness
after long-standing knee and
hamstring problems, also batted
early on and looked comfortable


against some local St Vincent
"W. iIust cleared some cob-
webs from the flight. It wa inCCt
to have a little net," Vaughan
told reporters back at the team
hotel on the beach.
"You are always quite
sceptical about how (Carib-
bean wickets) they will play.
The first two weeks are cru-
cial for me but also the team.

"Kevin will certainly come
back in and over the next two
warm-up games it is up to the
players to hold their hand up
and stake a claim."
But England coach Duncan
Fletcher, who confirmed the
two warm-ups would be 13
players-a-side, said they were
almost sure of their best start-
ing lineup.
"We are pretty close. It is
the bowling area where we
have got some decisions to
make," he said.
England trained in intense
heat on a playing field in the
small village of Stubbs, with the
team minibus going along an un-
made road past stray goats to
approach the venue.
Their session was accompa-
nied by steel band music and the
crashing of waves against cliffs
just below the picturesque set-

"The mere fact that Sir Allen.has decided to do it again
speaks volumes to his commitment and we as the legends are
very happy, having met again. The mere fact that we want to
do it again is indicative of our commitment to the enhancement
of West Indies cricket." he added.
Hall also disclosed there were plans to upgrade the

"There will be a difference to the ground next year. There
will be improvements for the players and for the fans ... this
is a beautiful little ground, but we have seen the need to make
improvements and that is what we will do." Hall explained.
"We looked at the funds that have been given to the vari-

is essential that this happens, as it is imperative for the ad-

Graham was the city team's one
bright spot to earn the Most
Outstanding Goalkeeper award,
with wingback Kris Comacho
offering good support on the left
flank and captain Trevon
Lythcott on the right.
Georgetown had one clear
chance after a goalless first half,
when a free Andrew Murray Jr,
who was already called to the
senior national squad, got a
loose ball just in front of the
goal, 25 minutes in.
He took the shot from just
inside the box and the ball went
high over the cross.
That was matched by Kevin
Beaton of Upper Demerara, six
minutes later. He collected the
ball inside the box at the left,
with goalkeeper Graham already
out of the goal advancing to try
to intercept, and he sent a right-
footer past the goal at the right.
No goals came in regula-
tion time, a situation that re-
mained unchanged at the
end of extra time, forcing the
players to the penalty spot.
Upper Demerara took the
first kicks and the first five shots

were on target, until Murray lined
up the city's third kick, sending
a soft shot straight to the goal-
keeper for an effortless save.
The next kicks for both
teams were good and Upper
Demerara seemed to be one goal
away from victory. Then Gra-
ham blocked captain Clive
Vickery's shot and Georgetown
were back in the game.
But the highly touted:
Mannaseh Primo sent his right-.
footer wide of the goal to the
left, sending Upper Demerara
wild in celebration.
Upper Demerara captured
the two Most Valuable Player
(MVP) awards, Michael
Crandon for the final and
Beaton for the championship.
Former national Under-
15 captain Sherlon Edwards
of Bert ice scored the most
goals in the championship,
netting seven.
Earlier in the third place
play-off, Edwards blasted a hat-
trick, but that was matched by
fellow national youth player
Dwayne Blake of Bartica, which
turned to be the only goals for

MUMBAI, India (Reuters) -
The International Cricket
Council (ICC) has amended.
its laws so that match refer-
ees, rather than umpires, will
decide whether games should
be terminated if a team re-
fuses to play.
The amendment to Law
21.3 follows last year's row at
the Oval when Pakistan lost to
England by forfeit for refusing
to take the field after being ac-
cused of ball-tampering.
The rule change was
adopted at a two-day ICC board
meeting which ended in Cape
Town on Friday. It takes imme-
diate effect.




Blatter over

World Cup

BOGOTA, Colombia
(Reuters) Colombia
President Alvaro Uribe
criticised FIFA chief Sepp
Blatter on Thursday for
suggesting the South
American country's bid to
host the 2014 World Cup
was a publicity stunt.
Blatter, the president of
world soccer's governing
body, said this week that
the bid was aimed at
promoting Colombia rather
than a realistic attempt to
stage the finals.


"Before he can say that,
he has to get rid of all ihe
mafia who have infected
football, and respect
Colombia," Uribe told
Colombia and Brazil
have bid to host the
finals, with the 2014
World Cup earmarked for
South America under
FIFA's rotation system.

"The Board's decision re-
flects the fact that the match
referee is the chief executive
of the match, the person who
has overall responsibility for


the way the game is played
and officiated," ICC chief ex-
ecutive officer Malcolm
Speed said in a statement.
"This decision does not,
however, detract from the on-
field role of the umpires and
they would, of course, still re-
main an integral part of the pro-
cess of awarding a match in
those circumstances."
The ICC said umpires
would still have responsibil-
ity for determining the end
of a match in all other cir-
The decision to amend the
law relating to teams refusing to
play was a direct response to
last year's chaotic end to the
Test match between Pakistan
and England.

Pakistan refused to
continue playing after the
two umpires, Australia's
Darrell Hair and West In-
dian Billy Doctrove,
penalised the team five
runs for ball-tampering, a
charge they hotly disputed.
Under the existing laws, the
umpires had no alternative but
to award victory to England,
though the repercussions did not
end there.
Pakistan captain Inzamam-
ul Haq was later banned for four
one-day games for bringing the
game into disrepute. He was
cleared of ball-tampering.
Hair, who was blamed by
Pakistan for causing the row,
was later sacked from the
ICC's elite panel of umpires.

STAGGERING from one di-
saster to another, Essequibo
cricket reaped the bitter har-
vest of indecision, indisci-
pline, complacency against
Demerara at the completion
of the initial round of the
2007 Castrol two-day Inter-
county cricket competition at
Bourda yesterday. It was a

Berbice tomorrow at the Police

ager Ian John hailed his team, es-
pecially the bowlers, for their
consistency and accuracy and
more importantly effectiveness
in grabbing 20 wickets in just
over 100 overs.

Outplayed at every turn by
their better-prepared opponents
for the particular demands of
this level of cricket, the
Cinderella County boys were
trounced by an innings and 33
runs, 28 minutes after the re-
sumption of tea.
This was a humbling loss
that only magnified the extent of
continuous declining standards
of their cricket. Once again an
atrocious batting performance
saw the young Essequibians
fold for 87 in their second in-
nings after Demerara, as was
expected, declared on 211 for

than two days on a typically
flat Bourda track, so it was a
good all-round effort. The
bowlers did their job well; just
the batsmen will have to show
more application at the crease
and score runs heavily," John
Demerara resumed yes-
terday morning comfortably
placed at 159 for four with
Delon Fernandes on 41 and
wicketkeeper/batsman Kevin
Singh on one. Fernandes
went on to hit an impressive
half-century while Singh
grafted a solid unbeaten 37
before the declaration came
at 11:03 h.
The left-handed Fernandes
hit four fours from his 85-ball
55 and he featured in a fine 46-
run fifth-wicket stand with
Singh, who faced 45 balls and
hit three fours in 69 minutes in

a steady unbeaten 37.
Essequibo fast bowler Neal
Romalho, who bowled with
some amount of accuracy and
good line and length, was highly
rewarded with the impressive
figures of five for 29 from 10.3
overs while Keron McLennon
and skipper Rovindra Mohabir
picked up a wicket each.
At lunch the visitors were
22 for one, and, probably were
informed by their coach Vibert
Johnson that application will be
the ingredient to at least salvage
a draw. But right-arm La Rose
had other ideas.
La Rose bounced in from
the northern end and imme-
diately accounted for
McLennon (8) who was spec-
tacularly stumped down the
leg-side by Singh and Rove
Harris (0), to leave their team
precariously placed at 22 for
three. Devenash Ramnarace
who made a quick 15 became
La Rose's third victim.
Mohabir (5), Melvin
Seepersaud, who top-scored in
their first innings with 26 and
did not capitalise on his promo-
tion to number six, stayed
around for 13 before he flashed
at a ball outside the off-stump
by off-spinner Ricardo Devers.
Royan McAII (6), Romalho
(3), and Dwayne Singh (3) were
undone by a combination of
off-spin and leg-spin by the
home team while Keron
Sewnarine who made a defiant
15 tried desperately to make
Demerara bat again.
La Rose, whose leadership
was quite sound, nabbed three
for 14 from nine overs while
off-spinner Jagdesh Bishun in
his eight economical overs
grabbed two for four. There was
one-wicket apiece for Shameer
Fazal, Devers, Amir Khan who
took four wickets in the first in-
nings and pacer Seon Daniels.

By Joe Chapman

THE GUYANA Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) on
Friday confirmed that the mandatory fees to show intent
of participation at this year's Caribbean Basketball
Championships were paid to the Caribbean Basketball
SConfederation (CBC) ahead of the deadline for such
The male tournament is scheduled to take place August 6-
10 in Caguas and the female from August 11-14 in Morovis,
SPuerto Rico.
President of the GABF, Colonel (Ret) Godwin McPherson,
said that the federation and the website had paid
the US$2 000 fees to the CBC before Wednesday March 1.
All countries interested in playing at this year's
championships were required to pay this initial $1 000 for each
Sale and female team.
S Guyana last contested the CBC championships in Barbados
in 2000 and has missed the 2002, 2004 and 2006 tournaments
After failing to pay debts incurred over annual affiliation during
Sthe period.
However, last year the GABF cleared those debts and
now seemed ready to send teams to this year's
The best performance of any Guyana team was the 1996
winning of the women's championship.
A decision was taken late last year to have the Caribbean
Basketball Confederation's (CBC) Senior Men and Women
basketball championships staged this year in Puerto Rico.
Last year's biennial championships, as it were, saw Jamaica
win the men and the women's titles.
They had duplicated the 2004 Cubans who dominated
Sthe championship at home to win double crowns. Guyana
last contested the Caricom Basketball Championships in
Barbados in 2000.
The CBC Executive Committee in November last year
in the United States Virgin Islands decided that the Junior
Tournaments would not be played as planned in 2007.
The bid for the staging of the championship was won
by Puerto Rico over the Dominican Republic and
Suriname, whose bids were not considered after they failed
to show at the General Assembly of the Caribbean
Basketball Confederation, which met towards the end of
January in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles.
The decision to divide the staging of the tournaments
came from the Puerto Rico Basketball Federation and
supported by the majority of the Caribbean basketball
But, this was after host nation Puerto Rico Federation
had proposed to stage only the men's tournament. It was
noted that the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC)

Men are complaining that I am always giving advice to women
and not to them. So here goes something for you guys.
Woman often tell themselves that they need to keep some se-
crets from their men. Well, the inverse is true as well. There
are certain things that your woman should never find out
about you.
For instance, she doesn't need to know about the hot girl who
works at your office, and you don't want her to know that you
cried for a week after your ex dumped you flat.
After all, you always need to maintain some leverage in your
relationship. And as soon as your lady has all the goods on you,
the power distribution will have shifted dramatically. Furthermore,
keeping some information to yourself might help keep her honest,
and it saves you from the risk of public embarrassment.
Here are the top 10 things your girl/woman should never know
about you. Keep this valuable info to yourself, but remember this:
If your woman can potentially find out about any of the following
from another source, you might as well give it up right now.
If she discovers any ofyour little secrets by means of an alter-
nate party, you'll have to deal with her screams over both the in-
formation in question and the fact that you tried to cover it up.
Your conquest count
Look, you know how many women you've bagged and it's
probable that some of your friends do, too. But that's where this
circle of info should close. It's not necessary to give your current
lover a running tally of conquests. Sure, you both want to be safe
when it comes to sex. And I encourage you to get yourself tested
to prove to both her and yourself that you're clean (of course, she
should do the same).
But there's no need to divulge numbers doing so will upset
her and put you at risk of spending the night alone.

Your income
As a relationship progresses, it is natural that a couple come to
grow familiar with each other's finances. But in the early stages of
dating, there is a very sound and reasonable argument for playing
your personal monetary value close to the vest. Two words: gold
diggers. You could have the bank account of Donald Trump or the
debts of Mike Tyson: either way. she shouldn't know. Let her dig
you for you first.
Then, if you're flush, you can buy her the stuff she likes and
such. And if you're broke, she'll either ditch you because you don't
buy her stuff, or she'll prove that she's of a worthy character by
sticking with you. So keep your Benjamins to yourself.

The location of your porn stash
Guys like porn. A lot of chicks do. too. There's no sense, how-
ever, in mixing up your fantasy world with the real one.
As soon as your lady gets wind that you have a porn stash,
there's a good chance that she'll be crying about how she has to
compete with Jenna Jameson or Nia Long whenever she sleeps with
And man, you do not need that kind of stress every time you
want to get it on. Worse yet, she could get all crazy and throw out
your collection when you aren't looking. Protect your porn. and
keep it under wraps.
Your weaknesses
Maybe you cry during insurance commercials, or maybe you
aren't really as self-confident as you make yourself out to be in
public. These frailties don't matter as long as she never finds out
about them. If she does, she'll start making all sorts of "cute" jokes
at your expense. Or the revelation that her man isn't quite the man
that she thought he was will put her off of you entirely.
Be strong and keep your weaknesses undercover no matter what
they say about men should show their feminine side. To hell with
Your strip club experiences
Do you like going to peeler bar? Enjoy watching the ladies dance
around erotically for your pleasure? Want to maintain the strip club
as al open option for an evening's entertainment?
Then do not tell your woman that you go there. Don't even
concede that you used to go regularly.'She'll want to know why
you like it. and how much you spend on "tips" for the girls. Even
those women who claim to have no problems with strip clubs will
somehow twist this habit of yours to their advantage. Simply put,
this is a conversational road you do not want to go down.
Your weirder fantasies
Certain fantasies should be shared and enjoyed together. But
you may be into freaky stuff that she just wouldn't understand.
Maybe your sexual fantasies involve garden tools or shellfish, and
you're just not sure if your lady will appreciate them. Well, there's
a good chance that she won't. There are certain daydreams that

you and your imagination should take care of on your
own, and that you shouldn't divulge to your lady.
Once she knows what dark thoughts are running through
your head, she may head for the door faster than you can
say "gimp."
Your masturbation frequency
Women know that guys masturbate. It's a fact of life.
But your woman doesn't need to know the frequency, dura-
tion and tools that you use to get off it might just pique
her curiosity. A guy wants to be alone when he's playing
with himself, and you don't need her trying to sneak up on
Syou when you're having some "personal time."
Your ex-girlfriend memorabilia
You might have kept naked pictures of your exes. Maybe
You've stashed away their love letters or their panties. Heck,
you may have a whole database of their names and personal
Sinfo printed up on an Excel spreadsheet.
Whatever the case, never let your current squeeze find
out about your memorabilia. Even if she's willing to leave
the past in thepast, you can bet that she won't balk at drop-
ping their names as ammo in future fights.
For example: "I see then. I guess Melissa would have
never done that, would she?" Get the picture? Besides, these
are your private memories your new girl just doesn't need
to know.
Your embarrassing moments
We've all had them. And I'm not just talking about light
Embarrassment, like farting in public or getting caught in a
Freudian slip. I'm talking about severe, crippling
embarrassment, on the scale of soiling the sheets or having
San ex post an indecent picture of you online. If you've
Suffered this kind of monstrous humiliation, she should not
Sget a whiff of it. The idea of it and the accompanying visual
will surely blow your cool factor right out of the water, and
leave your woman killing herself with laughter.
It's not the best way to remain slick, and there's a good
chance that she'll never look at you in the same light again.
You've already lost your pride once over the incident; there's
no need to relive the experience. I
Your cheating past
Maybe you were just a conniving player back in the day.
Or you might have had complicated issues with an ex that
drove you into the arms of another woman. No matter what
the reasons, no matter how strong your determination is to
mend your ways and get a clean start with someone new,
your cheating past is something that you never want to re-
veal to your lady.
She'll automatically think that you're looking to score
behind her back every chance you get, and you'll never get a
fair shake from her again.
The dirt on your buds
Never dish the dirt about your buddies to your woman.
SWhat constitutes dirt? Well, think of it this way: Never
Sell your girls things about your pals that they wouldn't
reveal to their own ladies for instance, the 10 things listed
above. There are a couple of very good reasons underlying
The first is that finking them out is a serious violation
of the guy code. The second is that you don't want to im-
plicate yourself by association: If you're always going on
about how much time your buddy Dave spends at the peel-
ers, she'll start to wonder how much time you spend there
with him. Be a man, cover for your brothers and you'll cover
for yourself. I
Now that you know what information you should
keep well-hidden from your woman, you'll always look
cool and strong for the ladies. Just remember; loose lips
sink ships.

Becky, Wayne often says he admires the amoeba, a tiny crea-
ture with only one cell. If you watch an amoeba through a
microscope, you will see a creature which moves toward what
it needs and recoils from what it doesn't. Life is no more com-
plicated than that.
People with good parents and favorable circumstances build
from a center of encouragement, and they have a place to fall back
to. People whose development was thwarted cannot change until
they are freed from their negative conditioning.
To cope with things like alcoholism or abuse they developed
certain patterns of thought and behavior. These patterns are the
normal operation of a mind recoiling from a bad situation, and un-
fortunately, they can't be changed by will power alone. These pat-
terns include such mental habits as reliving bad memories, physical
habits like holding tension in the muscles, and emotional habits like
dwelling on fears.
Last week we offered three techniques to break these pat-
terns. The mind can be freed through simple exercises focus-
ing on the breath; books on mindfulness, relaxation, and medi-
tation explain such techniques. The body can be freed through
simple stretching and flexibility exercises, like the warm-ups
people do before a sport, or the exercises taught in a begin-
ning yoga class.
Two weeks ago Tamara made //
a comparison to a block of ice. We -
cannot change its shape with will
power, but if we restore the ice to
its original form-water-we can
refreeze it into almost any shape

we desire. If we restore the mind and body to their original state,
we can break our negative conditioning and transform our lives.
What you need to do is recondition your mind, recondition your
body, and understand what you are capable of by seeing what oth-
ers are capable of. That is why we mentioned a third technique:
look for good role models. They can show you how to live. Seek
out highly functioning people the way ancient navigators sought
the pole star.
Lastly, we want to address your fears. The fears you have
today are no more than the fears you had as a child in slightly
different form. As a child you worried about why daddy was
drunk and why mommy lied for daddy. As an adult you
torture yourself with fears about being sued or being trashed
by a tabloid. When you dissolve your negative conditioning,
those fears will also dissolve.
Can you publish a novel? Perhaps. But often the desire to write
or paint or live in the country is simply a placeholder. It stands
for something else. It stands for the desire to uncork the bottle; it
stands for the desire to release the energy trapped in negative pat-
terns. Until you begin to change you won't know what your de-
sire to write is really about.
What we are suggesting is very, very simple. It does not pre-
clude using any other means, like counseling or support groups, to
help you change. But people who follow this path look.back after
a period of years and feel their life was guided by an unseen hand.
That unseen hand is the natural unfolding of their potential as a
human being.
Like the amoeba, which can change its form to adapt to cir-
cumstances, you can change in ways you cannot now imagine.

The dangers of drug

abuse in dental


EVERYONE is affected by
the stress of modern life and
in the quest for respite, ironi-
cally, uncontrolled self medi-
tation in all forms is prac-
ticed which sometimes leads
to serious situations.
Occasionally, dental person-
nel prescribe medications for
their patients unnecessarily, an
act which in itself constitutes
drug abuse. While all drugs pro-
duce undesirable side effects
cognizance must also be given to
the various conditions derived
from the use of certain drugs.
Up to eight grams (one third
of an ounce) of sugar is added
to every two teaspoons of some
liquid forms of medication in or-
der to preserve the product and
conceal an unpleasant taste. If
taken several times a day. the
last intake often at bedtime and
perhaps kept in the mouth for
a minute or two before being
swallowed, the effect on the
teeth will rapidly be cata-
strophic in the form of decay.
Therefore, without quite realiz-
ing it cough syrup, etc. can
cause dental caries in persons
who do not adhere to the rules
of oral health.
Aspirin is probably the

most frequently used drug. In-
deed, it is widely to be capable
of preventing chronic heart dis-
ease if taken consistently, and
also promoted as the best medi-
cine for arthritis. However, a
daily intake of two to three as-
pirins results in five milliliters
(one teaspoon) of blood being
lost in the faeces every 24 hours
due to the erosion effect on the
protective mucosal barrier of the
If this continues for some
time without dietary supple-
mentation of iron, the person
may eventually develop iron
deficiency anemia, the symp-
toms of which can include a
smooth tongue surface, ten-
derness in the oral cavity,
pain when swallowing, tired-
ness and shortness of breath.
Hookworm infestation may
present identical symptoms.
Because the oral symptoms

MORROCO's King Mohammed VI has pardoned almost
9,000 prisoners to mark the birth of his daughter.
More than 24,000 prisoners are to have their sentences re-
duced, the justice ministry said in a statement.
The BBC's Richard Hamilton in Morocco says it is the larg-
est number of inmates to be given a royal pardon.
Human rights groups have often criticised the cramped con-

"The releases -

Our correspondent says it is customary in the North Afri-

There has been great excitement over the birth of the king's
new daughter and second child, Princess Lalla Khadija, which
happened earlier this week.

"Mandal" means a place of
intellectual and cultural ac-
tivity in India.
Rayman Mandal has always
been and continues to be intel
lectually inclined, gathering his
knowledge from institutions
around the world and from an
exciting, fast-paced and reward-
ing life. Not onlydid he acquire
knowledge but he also shared
his knowledge in various ways,
from politicking to teaching to
writing to publishing.
His education was varied
and complex, influenced by
prevailing social, political, and
economic conditions of his time.
His early education came by
way of the Ursuline Covent for
Kindergarten at Camp and
Church streets; Sacred Heart
Primary, Main Street; and by
private tutors. The private as-
pect of his education was
coloured by ambitious consider-
ations to suit the dictates of his

Mandal spent two years ;at
Queen's College but his father
relocated him to St. Stanislaus
College because Mandal's
youthful zest for life redirected
his attention to sports ,nd arn
which his father thought were
useless pursuis.
He finished college in 1960.
Influenced bv hish main tutor,
Jadu, and the exciting pre-inde-
pendence conditions at the time,
he became active in the Progres-
sive Youth Organisation (PYO),
youth arm of the People's Pro-
gressive Party (PPP), a move
which catapulted him to Mos-
cow, USSR, where he gained
distinctions in his Diploma in
political science.

The facts of the case dis-
closed that in the appellant's
(Sanichar) absence a number of
bottles containing bush rum
were found by customs officers
under a floor board in his din-
ing room. The room adjoined a
grocery on the lower storey of
a two-storeyed building.
A door leading to the room
was kept open all day but was
locked at nights. There was no
, idencethat persons other than
the appellant and his family oc-
cupied the premises.
Three days later, and after
it was decided to prosecute, an-
other customs officer visited the
premises and on this occasion

the appellant admitted without
having been cautioned that the
rum was his.

possession of spirits. On ap-
peal it was contended on his be-
half that any of the inmates
could have placed the rum un-
der the floor board and that in
the absence of a caution his
statement was inadmissible.
The Full Court held
there was enough evidence to
support a finding that the ap-
pellant was in possession of
the rum. The statement was
admissible in evidence.
The judgment of the Court
disclosed that the appellant and
his family occupied a two-sto-
reyed building at Triumph, East

The evidence is that the ap-
pellant and his family used the
room as a dining room, and
when the officers of the Cus-
toms and Excise Department
visited the premises on January
31, 1961, they found in this
room a tin of biscuits and about
six dozen empty bottles.
Upon the removal of two
boards of the floor in this room
five large bottles and 9 half
bottles containing liquid and la-
belled "D'Aguiar's XM Rum
were found.
The officers thereupon in-
formed the appellant's daughter,
the sole occupant of the shop
present at that time that the
appellant would be prosecuted.
The Government Analyst
had certified that the 17 bottles
all contained rum of varying
strength and totalling approxi-
mately 266 fluid ounces ; 20
fluid ounces are equivalent to
one pint.
As a result the appellant
was charged for the unlawful
possession of spirits, contrary
to section 89 (1) of the Spirits
Ordinance, Chapter 319. The
appellant was convicted and it
is against this conviction that
the appeal is now brought, the

judgment explained.
The appellant's case was
that he was never in possession
of the rum, and on this appeal
two main points arise from dis-
The first is that there was
not sufficient evidence before
the magistrate on which he

: ,' ..


could have found possession in
the appellant, and secondly that
the evidence to the effect that
the appellant had, on one occa-
sion when another Customs Of-
ficer had visited the premises
some three days after the date
of the alleged offence, admitted
without being cautioned, that
the rum was his, ought not to
have been received on the
ground that it was a statement
made without the necessary
caution having been given.
There can be no question
but that the rum was found on
the premises of the appellant,

and secreted under the floor of
a room occupied by the appel-
lant, the Full Court had said.
After rejecting a number
of submissions by Appellant's
counsel, the Full Court had
said "we are of the view tht
the magistrate has before
him enough evidence upon
which he could have found
that the appellant was in pos-
session of the rum."
Dealing with the second
submission, the judgment added
that "if the evidence of the
appellant's admission that the
rum belonged to him was le-
gally admissible, we are clearly
of the opinion that this would
have satisfied the 'mental ele-
ment' referred to in Meerza v.
"The evidence is that no
caution had been administered
before the alleged admission,
and the submission is that the
Customs Officers having previ-
ously made up their minds to
prosecute the appellant, should
have cautioned him before mak-
ing any enquires of him, and as
a result, the answer given by
the appellant three days after
the seizure of the rum was in-
Counsel further submit-
ted, according to the judg-
ment, that the answer was
elicited if indeed it was elic-
ited as a result of a trap.
Continuing its judgment, the
Full Court explained that "it has
long been established as a posi-
tive rule of English Criminal
Law, that no statement by an
accused is admissible in evidence
against him unless it is shown
by the prosecution to have been
a voluntary statement, in the
sense that it had not been ob-
tained from him either by fear
of prejudice or hope of advan-
tage, exercised or held out by a
person in authority.
"The point of that passage
is that the statement must be a
voluntary statement, any state-
ment which has been extorted

Is the Caribbean ready

for the World Cup?

By Boria Majumdar

(BBC) THIS poser is worry-
ing a lot of people barely two
weeks away from the opening
of the showpiece event.
For the small, independent
nations, of varying economic
strengths, that comprise the
West Indies, the tournament
presents big challenges.
Most of the host islands
have populations between
100,000 and 300,000. They
could face up to 50,000 inter-
national visitors during the
The islands may include
some of the world's premier
tourist destinations. But the
challenges of staging a sporting
event of this magnitude are very
Take Barbados. It will be
hosting six of the eight final-
round play off games, including
the high profile India-Pakistan
and India-West Indies clashes.
The problems begin at the
airport. There are only four
customs counters. The time
taken to clear television equip-
ment through ranges from an

hour to two hours. Foreign me-
dia crew expect long waits.
The flight schedules are
awkward and there are only a
couple of connecting flights for
passengers from the Indian sub-
Travel within Barbados is
hard. A distance of five
kilometres, the distance between
my hotel and the Kensington
Oval cricket ground, takes an
hour or more and taxi fares are
never less than $15.
Restaurants are struggling to
keep up. The time taken to
serve pizza at the pizzeria in a
mall opposite my hotel was an
hour and twenty minutes. Many
of the waitressing staff seem
new to the job.
These may be teething
problems. But internet facilities
are unreliable. More than two
thirds of the hotels have no
internet. Internet cafes are few
and far between. Places with
broadband are limited and the
speed is often not good enough
to send television stories.

If you think you can over-

come this by calling office/
home, you are in for a shock. A

$5 phone card allows you to
talk for only for a minute to the
UK and India. To compound
problems, some hotels charge
$3 every time one uses a calling
card from the room phone.
One redeeming feature,
however, is the local enthusiasm
for the event.
Residents are more than
ready to house international
visitors in their homes and the
local tourism authorities are also
Yet another redeeming fea-
ture is the entertainment on of-
In India it is impossible to
imagine stars like Sourav
Ganguly or Sachin Tendulkar
playing cricket with local chil-
dren on the city streets.
In the Caribbean, how-
ever, things are different.
As a build up to the event,
authorities have revived

a6 .

the culture of beach
cricket. Caribbean cricket
players are regularly play-
ing with young children to
spread the message of the
World Cup.
While beach cricket helps
break down class barriers and
helps bring the entire commu-
nity together, it is also good fod-
der for journalists looking for
stories outside match reports.
Add to these novelties the
sun-kissed Caribbean beaches,
the beautiful women and rous-
ing calypso and you have a
World Cup which every poten-
tial to be outstanding.
But will the islanders be
able to cope with pressures of
hosting such an international
Reverend Wes Hall, leg-
endary former West Indies
fast blower, summed it up
best: "The World Cup has al-

ready transformed us. We in
the Caribbean are used to
Getting up [in the morning]
and checking if there are
clouds in the sky. Only then
do we make up our minds on
whether or not to go to the
[cricket] ground."
"For the World Cup, how-
ever, things are different. If we
wait for the day of the games,
none of us will get tickets. This
event demands a fundamental
transformation in our attitude
and we have realized that. By
the time the event ends, the
world too will wake up to the
fact that the Caribbean has re-
invented itself."

TWO-week-old Woody Lander "came back to life" half an hour
after being pronounced dead by medical staff. So how do you
diagnose death?
His parents call him their "little miracle" and those in the medi-
cal profession say the case is "amazing".
Woody Lander now a healthy 14 months old was pronounced
dead at Leeds General Infirmary after frantic attempts to save him
by medical staff apparently failed. He had stopped breathing fol-
lowing a heart attack.
He was handed to his parents so they could say goodbye but
when nurses started removing tubes from his body he began "twitch-
ing". Staff tried again to resuscitate him, this time successfully start-
ing his heart 30 minutes after he was pronounced dead.
The case highlights how it is not always as straight forward as
it may seem to tell if someone has died. So how do you know if
someone is dead?
Diagnosing death is about excluding all possible signs of life,
say Doctor Rodger Charlton. But as a body's organs and tissues
do not die simultaneously there can be doubt about the actual mo-
ment of death.
In hospital someone is usually considered dead when there is
no electrical activity from the heart or brain, he says. However.
even these measurements are not completely reliable indicators of

WITH six international
models and a parade of
local and overseas
designers to descend
on Guyanal, Roger Gary
looks to add another'
feather to his cap.
He was ;here less than two.
weeks ago to join the,
"Firestorm" clan of his friend'
Michelle Cole for Mashramani.
That was just after he was in,
Ecuador fortheir new generation
model search.
He left Guyana for his home
New York earlier this week but
he will rush back to Guyana for
a month-end showcase to launch
what he is calling the Guyana;

f /--

Pi oy tfiC wihf

Rii, rrpnt ; ot eftiQr

Fashion Xpo.
"Guyanese are fashionable
people. We want to showcase
new ideas of what to wear and
how to wear it," he said.
The launching will take place
as part of a list of events New York-
based Guyanese Carol Bagot and
Ed Ahmad are planning for Cricket
World Cup 2007.
Among the top models he
has already roped in are Carla
Campbell, a former Sports
Illustrated Cover Girl, Bobby
Roache who the ladies would
know from Beyonce's
"Irreplaceable" video, and Jade
Cole from Season 7 of
America's Next Top Model.
Roger Gary has already
established a name for
himself in North America,
more particular the hip New
York fashion scene. And in
the Caribbean, he is the brain
behind a number of events.
Gary, best know for' his Aqua
Couture swimsuit irand for
both male and female. He is
also a name to reckon with it
comes to evening gowns,
sportswear and bridals.
He is creative director for
Barbados Fashion Week and for
the St. Kitts Fashion Weekend.
For the Guyana event,
which he plans for next year, he
is taking his experiences and
that of Michelle Cole to create

2 .. u

fashion spectacle never before
seen here.
"We want to implement
other aspects, rather than
allowing it to be just about
models on a catwalk. We
want to create an atmosphere

where people can see the
designs closer and we will
also have accessories and
other things pertaining to
fashion," he said this week.
He says Guyana and the
Caribbean has a lot of talent in
the world of fashion and with
the Fashion Xpo he hopes that
Guyana could establish a status
of being a hub of manufacturing
clothing in the Caribbean.
Regarding his own prowess,
he said "its easy for me, I was
born to do it, for some reason I
could organize things, and I'm
good at motivating.".
After the March launch, Roger
Gary heads for India to work on
the Supermodel of India, and who
knows what else!
"I love coming home," he
told us, but no word yet on
whether he will design for
Miss Guyana Universe this
year as he has done over the
last couple of years.

AS New York bans the use of the word nigger, the BBC's Kari
Browne finds that when it comes to the small word with a long
legacy, there are even divides within her own family.
Nigger. or "nigga" as most young people pronounce and spell
it these days, has been banned by the largest city in America.
In a historic move. the New York City Council has publicly
called on all residents, young and old, rich or poor, black, white,
Asian and Latino to voluntarily stop using the word.
The ban is a symbolic one, a plea- for the public to stand in

SOME U.S. comedians like Chris Rock use the word in
their routines
solidarity to re-stigmatise the word.
For years the "n-word" has carried a stigma which is so strong
that most American journalists and writers have.chosen not only
to refrain from saying it, but also to refrain from writing it.
Taboo word
I actually am a reformed n-word user.
As a product of a mixed-marriage my mother is African Ameri-
can and my father white I grew up in an extremely racially di-
verse community near San Francisco.
I used the n-word among friends, at school, singing along to
songs. I used it carelessly without thinking much about it. It wasn't
uncommon to hear my Filipino friends say to my Korean friends
"what's up nigga".
Even among white kids, it was used ironically as a term of re-
spect to one another... a way to fit in or identify with friends of
other races.

Thinking of it now, our ancestors (both black and white) would
be rolling in their graves as they listen to black kids greet their white
friends with "what's up my nigga", or whites doing the same to
their black friends.
Indeed it's become a part of our language, and sadly I don't
remember feeling ashamed of using the word. Actually, that's not
entirely true. 1 would never have said it around my parents or fam-
ily. And perhaps that's the key.
I suppose the hope is to shame people out of using the word
in a very public effort.
But are young people even listening?
Words are'multidimensional. And they mean different things to
different people. But how can a word used to categorically
dehumanise an entire race of people ever be flipped around to be
used as a term of endearment?
Some African-Americans argue that by reclaiming the word, by
owning it for themselves, the word can take on whatever meaning
they ascribe to it.
In other words, they argue it is possible to reinvent the n-word
and change its connotation.
Words can be painful and incredibly emotional. The n-word was
born in the context of American slavery.
The first written documentation of it in print form was in 1786.
It was used by white slave masters to label their black slaves.

Centuries later, it has enjoyed a rebirth among mostly young
folks who have
never known the
context in which
it was once spo-
ken. And this is

you today?"
My grandfa-
ther, raised in
part by his

freed slave -
doesn't greet his
friends with the KARi BROWNE: A reformed n-word user
In fact I
have never heard him, or anyone else in my family use it. So why
did I?
Generational perhaps? And that is exactly what young people
say today.
Different perceptions
My great-grandmother once asked me if I knew what the term
"cracker" meant. Cracker is often used ina derogatory context to
describe white people.
It too has had a rebirth among some whites who jokingly refer
to themselves as "white trash" or "crackers".
For all I knew, the term cracker referred to the white colour of
saltine crackers we eat. So I always thought we called white people
crackers because tyey were the colour of crackers. End of tory.
Apparently not so. My great-grandmother told me that the term
"cracker" was used by slaves to refer to their white slave owners
as the man who "cracks the whip".
Crackers were the masters who beat their slaves.
Words carry weight.
Perhaps the gesture by the city council is to encourage people
to be more considerate and sensitive to the legacy of the word.
So the debate continues. Though New Yorkers will not face
fines or penalties for using the word, those on the New York
City Council hope that people will consider carefully the con-
text and connotation of the n-word and make an empowered
decision to stop using it. (BBC)

WHAT interests us here is
James Brown's music; his
songs and skilful musical
structures of his band.
Without this James Brown
would not have become re-
spected and admired interna-
tionally. Brown's personal life
was filled with all sorts of sen-
sational rumours, controversies.

disputes and arguments over his

etc. Brown's music, however, is
a plea for less upheaval.
One of Brown's most beau-
tiful and moving songs, in tone.
structure and poetic verses, is
"This is a Man's World". It
stands out from many of his
fast funky songs because of its
magnificent mixture of classical
orchestration with his crisp.
clear, slow poetic tone of voice.
It opens with a spiral of
sound, before Brown's voice in
sheer earnestness sings this
balled of high and low tonal

sadness of a life without fe-
male company: "He's lost in

Brown's continual emphasis
on sexual and romantic fun, and
pleasant everyday social living,
was not some macho stance, but
a solution to many human prob-
lems which develop when we
lose sight of basic human values.
James Brown's songs as
well as his sense of fashion and
style were part of the cosmo-
politan Mod Scene, with its
emphasis on neatly tailored.
bright close-fitting clothes, long
-hair, neat appropriately match-
ing footwear. Brown's pressed
,and styled hair was purely an
artistic siatemenLi related to the
bohemian look and lifestyles o!f
great composers like Beethoven.
Nlozart. Handel. ctc: Brown as-
serted his right as a black artist
,to share equal values with great
'European musical artists.
Brown's Mod style in
clothes and hair. later came to
influence the New Wave, Punk,
and Funk-Rock of mod dance
bands like Blondie, Billy Idol.
Prince. etc. The Mod style
emphasises a community of re-
laxed, non-racial, social and ar-
tistic values.
Brown's music was a part
of the Mod scene which
emerged in Guyana since the
1960's. when youths of all eth-
nic and mixed backgrounds re-
fused to follow the segregated
and belligerent ideas on race and
class which some groups and
individuals sought to foment in
colonial and independent

Brown's powerful lyrics
and his band's music proved
that the artistic work of blacks
did not have to be relevant only
to those of their race, but could
transcend colour bars.
An intelligent, and egali-
tarian international Mod
scene was inspired by songs
by artists like Brown, who
were not aggressive or big-
oted, though they were often
frankly free-spoken, as when
Brown surprised many with
"Say It Loud, I'm Black and

JAMES Brown doing some
dance moves to the beat of
his music during the TAMI

I'm Proud". The Mod Scene
was fostered by other songs
and Bands like: "Groovin"
by The Young Rascals, "Ferry
Across the Mersey" by Gerry
& The Pacemakers, "Hold
On I'm Comin" by Sam &
Dave, "Higher and Higher"
by Jackie Wilson, "Uptight"
by Stevie Wonder, "Midnight
Hour", "Mustang Sally", and
"Land of A 1000 Dances", all
by Wilson Pickett, "The In-
Crowd" by Dobie Gary,
"Don't Let me be Misunder-
stood" by The Animals,
"Blame It On The Bossa
Nova" by Lesley Gore, "Baby
Love" by The Supremes,
"The Look of Love" by Dusty
Springfield. "Jimmy Mack"
by Martha & The Vandellas,
even "Strangers In The
Night" by Frank Sinatra, and
many others of a similar re-
laxed and positive social sen-
timent. Also, we must never
exclude those beautiful in-
strumental tunes by Booker
T & the MGs".
The key to the influence and
effect of James Brown's many
songs lie in their brilliantly con-
structed musical form.
All great art is achieved
through special and unusual
form. Such form, as in contem-
porary painting, may simply be
one colour applied, but for a
reason, or what may be in-
scribed in that one colour.
Brown's strict musical
structures were ingenious meth-
ods of conveying precise tones,
stops and starts, rhythms, and
stylistic changes within a single
tune. Listen to "Papa's Got A
Brand New Bag" and you can
hear various stylish forms and
rhythms in the same tune.

pops like a huge bubblegum, it
bounces in and out like hot sex,
and Brown intends it so. In "I
Go! You" Brown expresses;
pure joy in this unforgettable
early tune that is so simply yet
complex musically: listen to the
horns and rhythm section as
Brown expresses a rich black
and generous human appeal.
with tonal lines like: "I feel nice,
sugar and spice". and "When I
hold you in my arms, I know
that I can do no wrong, and
when I hold you in my arms,
my love, won't do you no
harm". The song ends with an
amazing upbeat shout: "Hey!
Such style was musical form of
a new, relaxed, innovative excel-
lence. That is the secret of
Brown's success
One of Brown's greatest
tunes is "Cold Sweat", where
he also introduced the two-
part tune, one with more
words, the other more instru-

mental. Reggae would later
follow this style with its sung
and "Dub" versions of songs.
But Brown's "Cold Sweat",
especially Part 2, would cause
those Mods of the Guyanese
scene near the cinemas at
Regent Street's Beer
parlours, and at house fetes,
to get up and get down as a
group, mainly male, as this
was a song with a male topic,
a male drive.
Brown's "Cold Sweat" is
pure artistry, tight and delicious.
"Hot Pants" was another song
which spoke to every girl in
Guyana who rode their bikes
and walked around town or sat
at Cafes in tight shorts. I mean
shorts, not those of today that
cover the thighs. Strangely, in
Guyana of the 60's it was
mostly creole Guyanese girls of
European extraction who went
pubic in such short "shorts".
"Sex Machine" signalled

Brown's ability to "stay on the
scene like a rhythm machine."
There was no live performer
like James Brown. He moved
like kinetic sculpture, his body
movements acted out defeat and
victory, weariness and rejuvena-
tion; he acted out the will to live
and enjoy life.
His professionalism was
paramount; it is said that
when he opened and closed
his fist while performing, it
meant inattentive band mem-
bers had played a wrong note.
and were to receive a deduc-
tion of five dollars each time
from their pay cheque.
Brown, like The Beatles, and
The Animals, was a founder
of the international Mod
Scene, whose multi-racial
members express solidarity and
similarity in their fashion, social
ease, and artistic interests.
James Brown helped build a bet-
ter world via music.

Part 1

Lead present in smoke and
exhaust fumes is of major concern as are nickel and arsenic.
When inhaled, these particles, lodge in the lung tissues and
may cause respiratory problems. Solid particles also create
eye and skin irritations.

Sulphuric Acid
Sulphuric acid is a very corrosive substance. It is formed when
sulphur burns air to form a gas which dissolves rapidly in water
vapour. Much of the sulphuric acid in the air is formed from the
burning of coal, oil, and gas. Persons can be exposed to sulphuric
acid in the work place in industries which produce chemicals,
detergent, soap, fertilizer, and lead acid batteries.

Fluoride Compounds
Fluoride emissions are produced by industries that manufacture
aluminium, steel, glass, phosphate fertilizers, ceramics, bricks and
clay products as well as the burning of coal. Excessive fluoride is
unhealthy for livestock. It accumulates in the bones of animals and
causes deformities and other damage.

Hydrogen Chloride
Volcanoes are a natural source of hydrogen chloride. The burning
of fossil fuels such as gasoline and diesel also produces hydrogen
chloride. Open burning of plastics also emits of hydrogen chloride.
Hydrogen chloride dissolves to form hydrochloric acid which is
corrosive and can be detrimental to human health.

Fertilizers, cleaning agents, PVC pipes all contain chlorine
compounds. Chlorine is corrosive and when released e.g. by burning
of PVC it can have hazardous effects on human health. Some studies
have associated chlorine with growth retardation in babies and
reduced sperm count in men. The severe short and long term impact
of chlorine pollution is that it is respiratory irritant.

Hydrogen Sulphide
Hydrogen sulphide is a smelly gas that is emitted from decaying
matter such as sewage, dead animals etc. In high concentration, this
gas is poisonous.

Nitric Acid
Nitrogen combines with oxygen to form oxides of nitrogen. These
gases dissolve in moisture to form nitric acid. Nitrogen oxides are
produced naturally by bacteria in the process of decay. They are
also formed in volcanic action, and by lightning. Man-made
emissions are mainly due to burning of fossil fuel. The gas is also
emitted from welding processes and in the use of explosives.
Nitrogen oxides are respiratory irritants and are harmful to humans
and vegetation.

Carbon monoxide
Carbon monoxide is created whenever a fuel such as wood,
gasoline, coal, natural gas, kerosene, etc. is burning. When inhaled,
it can affect organs such as the brain and heart. It also affects the
process of growth and development in babies. It can also affect our
concentration, slow our reflexes, and make us confused and sleepy.

The air we breathe is precious, save it from
impurities! Do join us next week were we will
look at the Environmental Protection (Air Quality
Regulations) 2000, Part 2.

SAGITTARIUS -- There is a lot of love coming your way right now, although
f- it might not be coming from the source you were hoping for. You're in some-
..i thing of a quiet phase, romantically speaking -- but there is a lot of energy in
the friendship area of your life! The people you choose to spend your free
; : time with are totally in love with you -- and they will be showing you this in
some very touching ways today. Remember that you are loved and worthy of
love -- no matter what's going on in your love life.

CAPRICORN -- Save your high-minded idealism for another day -- today is
all about elemental efforts and humble results. Tasks such as washing the
windows, cleaning out the garage and working in the garden will be very re-
warding, and they will make you feel not only more connected with the world
but also more content. Don't aim for major life changes right now. Revel in
today's Ileeting pleasures. and don't ask for more than you need.

AQUARIUS -- It has been a long while since you've pursued something purely
for its intellectual rewards, and you might want to address that today. There
is nothing wrong with indulging your hedonistic, sensualist side -- in fact.
S your recent indulgences have all been very good for you. But right now it
Should be wise to swing the pendulum back the other way. Pick up a challeng-
ing non-fiction book, look into a professional seminar or even just watch some
educational television.

PISCES -- Even thought you know very well that life isn't fair, you always
try to make things come out evenly -- which is to your credit. But in terms of
who owes what to whom, it's important for you to forget about some debts.
Now is not the time to nickel and dime anyone, especially a friend who might
S( be going through a tough time. So stop-thinking about what others may owe
you, and start being grateful that you can do withoutrit + because not.evey-
one can.

ARIES -- You have done an admirable job of putting your own interests aside
in favour of the larger group's desires lately, but you must be careful that you
don't make this type of extreme generosity a habit. Balance is important, and
you have to weigh the pros and cons of each situation as it comes up. You
can't understand the right way to move forward until you thoroughly exam-
ine a situation. Giving up what you want should not be your automatic reac-

TAURUS -- There's a lot to be said for knowing exactly what the day has in
store for you, so the next time you find yourself bored with your life, remem-
ber that spontaneity is just another word for unpredictability. You need to try
to get away from the 'grass is always greener' approach to things. If you are
always wishing things were different, how will you ever be satisfied? Your
routine will start to get more exciting and interesting once you start appreci-
ating it as it is.

GEMINI -- If anyone can inject some good wholesome fun into a typically
stiff or laborious intellectual exercise today, you can! While everyone else is
grumbling about this, that and the other unpleasant thing, you will be able to
stay happily above it all-- you can see that things are not as bad as others
are making them out to be. Take this opportunity to inspire other people, and
get them to turn their frowns upside down.

CANCER -- Your home life is extremely important to you right now it's where
you can always find solace and peace when you need it. Therefore, you need
to stay on top of the home-maintenance issues that have been popping up
lately. A little investment of time or money right now will save you a huge
amount of inconvenience later. And don't tackle it by yourself if it needs pro-
fessional attention. You may be handier than most people, but you're not an

LEO -- Multiply your effectiveness today by teaming up with someone else
to create a dynamic duo. Two heads are better than one, as are two sets of
eyeballs and two sets of legs. But partnering with someone does not mean
halving your effort! You have never had any problem collaborating, so go
with your instincts and object to a dumb idea if you hear one. Your partner is
mature enough for debate -- he or she wants quality as much as you do, and
is ready to hear honest criticism (as you should be).

VIRGO -- Deep and meaningful connections take time to build, so don't be
impatient if someone isn't ready yet to trust you with her or his innermost
feelings. Like a flower, a relationship needs time in the sun and a lot of nour-
ishment before it can fully bloom. Spend more time with this person, and do
not try to overcompensate by sharing your every emotion or personal story.
Take note of this person's boundaries, and set similar ones for yourself. Do
stick with this person. Just follow her or his lead.

LIBRA -- Not every day can be a super day, but most days can come pretty
close -- if you have a superstar attitude! Take today for example -- you might
have a few lame errands on your to-do list, but you don't have to let these
responsibilities ruin your whole day. Focus on the parts of your day that you
can control -- the hours that are yours and yours alone. Keepithe reward in
mind while you do your work, and you will get things done faster.

SCORPIO -- Given the way your mind is working today, flipping a coin might
just be the best way to make any decision you're faced with, whether it's what
to have for lunch or something much more significant. For too long, you've
been overanalysing things -- and you are close to becoming paralysed by an
excess of information. Break free by operating on instinct today. Follow your
whims, and don't buy into the idea that there is one right way and one wrong
way -- there's only your way.

The Excerpt
"Ah come to see de shepherd," Dinah replied. In-
stinctively she took a dislike to the woman she faced.
The tails of her eyes went too far round the side of her
face; her lips were clamped together too firmly. She
seemed a woman who was used to giving orders and
getting them obeyed.
"You can't see 'im now. Service jus' going start. If
you wan' you can stay an' wait in de service an' you
see 'im afterwards." She began to turn away, as if it
didn't matter what Dinah answered, only pausing an-
other moment to add, "It would do you good."
Dinah remained seated and watched the woman as
she (the woman) .... raised slowly the whistle to her
lips. She blew it hard and loud. There was a stir as
everyone rushed to their proper places. A late couple
hurried in from behind and Dinah noted with surprise
that the man accompanying the woman was Sammy,
the garbage-man.
The drum stopped beating. A moment of silence.
Then suddenly it started again, this time louder and the
rhythm now set to a quick, fixed pattern. Suddenly,
through the front door, a figure appeared. He was tall
and almost jet black, with clearly defined features, eyes
wide apart, gleaming and condescending, a carefully
shaven moustache, neatly pressed, dark navy-blue suit,
a stiff shirt and a long wooden staff with a brass handle
and in his left hand was a large black Bible. His ma-
jestic purple and white turban stood at least fourteen
inches above his head.
The Elder Mother walked down from the altar as
he entered .... With a loud confident voice the shep-
herd broke into the first line of the hymn Just As I Am
Without One Plea, as he walked on the platform keep-
ing time within his staff, urging on his followers with a
"one more time, Sisters", and an "Ahmen, Praise de
In a few minutes the service was in full swing. Ev-
eryone was singing heartily and adding their "Alleluias"
and "Yes, Lords." Already one or two of the more de-
vout were beginning to feel the spirit coming down on
them, though restraint was necessary at such an early
period of the service. SeN eral more hymns were sung
-- mournfully, sweetly, wailingly. It was such a far land
their voices took them to, such a far-far land. Away,
away, sun, moon, and stars They Shine So Bright. It
was not just the milk and honey, not just the voice of
God they heard, nor even the happiness of Jesus by their
sides. It was the awayness. Oh Wandering Sheep,
Lost and forlorn. Barren, desolate desert. Endless, arid
nothingness. Day after Yesterday. Poor me, poor me.
Lost and far away. Remove poor me. Dissolving me.
Sweet, sweet release.
(Taken from Orlando Patterson's "The Children
of Sisyphus")

The Business Letter (Continued)
Copy the following communication as a letter, using
semiblock form and open punctuation. Divide the let-
ter into paragraphs if necessary. Supply whatever ab-
breviations and symbols are necessary. Address the
envelope, and fold and insert the letter.

that you will have a supply some time in December.

Types of Letters
Reminder: Business letters are classified accord-
ing to their purpose? Yes. But no matter what is the
purpose, a letter must deliver its message, in the most
effective manner. The types that will be looked at in
these publications are as follows:
Letter of application; Letter of order; Letter of ad-
justment; Letter of payment, and Letter of enquiry

The Letter of Application
The letter of application, although a business letter,
must necessarily be personal in nature. Keep -that in
mind. It is essentially a sales letter and the
applicant and writer is the salesperson. The product
offered for sale is the writer's services.

If the letter of application is a reply to an advertise-
ment, it will usually have to compete with the other ap-
plications that the employer will receive. Of the fifty
or more letters that may reach his or her desk, s/he will
probably select only ten letters that make the best im-
pression on him or her at first glance.

There are certain things you must do to make sure
that your letter is, properly written and it can make the
best impression on the prospective employer. But in its
final form, it must reflect the character of the writer.

Never let your letter of application portray the char-
acter of someone alien to you.

The letter of application below is written in the modi-
fied-block style with indented paragraphs. In this style,
the first line of each paragraph is indented usually 5

promises to

quit smoking



I -1

BARELY a week after stories of his illness broke out
and swamped the print and electronic media, Saif Ali
Khan is back on his feet and promises to quit smoking
for ever.
"I'll have to take it easy for a while. Nothing strenuous
and certainly no smoking any more. In fact, my doctors told
me my condition was brought on entirely by smoking. It
causes deposits in the artery, which caused that clot. I've
decided to quit smoking completely," Saif told IANS.
Saif was rushed to hospital when he complained of chest
pain while practising for his performance at Stardust awards.
The actor was discharged recently.
He is out of danger, but Saif is bewildered by and yet
resilient to the knocks of life.
"There's bad news and good news. The bad news is
that it was a blood clot in my heart. The good news is that
it's been fully cured." Today Saif and his heart have be-
come best friends.
"Yeah, you can say that again. It's been a time of rev-
elation for me. Though I came out unscathed, this hospital
experience served up a healthy warning for me. I need to
correct a few things in my life, mainly the smoking.
"There I was, with genuinely ill people, people who
were suffering from cancer and chronic heart ailments.
It just made me so conscious of my own life and my
The ceaseless surge of concern has moved Saif.
"I was so glad to see my family and so many of my
friends from the film industry visiting me in hospital. I now
intend to use my rest period, writing each of them a per-
sonal thank you note."
So has the experience made Sail more compassionate?
"I guess 'so. I never visited anyone in hospital. Now.
I've decided to change that. 11 mailers so much to have
People \who care lor you when you're down."
Saif has one immediate regret. "1 couldn't host the
Filmfare awards. In fact, it would take me a couple of
weeks to get back to normal."

Vu Duc Long, head of the country's international adoption

for "permission" to adopt.
"We consider her like any other American who wants to
adopt children from Vietnam," Vu Duc Long said.
Two of the couple's three children were adopted from Cam-

"She is not yet married so the file was from her individu-

Long said.

** r,

Timeka Marshall, young, talented, and versatile; one of
Guyana's upcoming stars that has already made an impact not
only in the Guyanese market, but in the Caribbean as well.
The former St. Joseph's High School student found her
talent while still in high school. She explained that the GT&T
jingle competition was where it all began. "Before the
competition came up, I was just the average teen, just about to
write my exams. But then the'competition came, so I decided to
take a chance! I was encouraged by my friends to take the shot,
and I went for it! I never knew that I had this singing talent,
because I neverused to sing at all before."

Timeka went on to explain her awe when she realized
that she was iij a competition, and the odds of her winning were
good, "1 did not believe that I had a chance of winning this
competition! But after being short-listed, every time there was an
elimination, my confidence grew as I moved on, until I found
myself in the finals! During all this time, I still couldn't believe
that I was a part of this competition and doing so well! After my
recording, when I got selected for the top ten, my confidence grew
even more and I started to believe that I really had a chance of
winning it!"

As we all know, the results of the GT&T Jingle
Competition that year were favorable to Ms. Marshall. Instantly,
Timeka changed from an average teen to a 15 year old advertising
icon! Timeka was in every paper, all the television stations and
talked about countrywide since her success in the competition. "I
was forced to grow up," she said, "I had to change the way I
carried myself, because I'm representing a company now and not
only myself" When asked about having her face all over the
news,, a slight blush came to the young star's face as she
answered, "I felt good that I actually accomplished something
like this, because I never won anything in my life. So this was
definitely an accomplishment While it was all new to me, I had to
become accustom toit and very fast!"

After the competition, Guyana realized that not only
can Timeka sing, but she could model as well! Timeka showcased
another one ofher talents at a local fashion show. "I was asked to
sing at this show But while I was there, I looked at the girls doing
their thing so I said to myself, I could do that too, so I tried it!" Yet
again, Marshall struck gold, finding out that she had the face and
definitely the body for modeling. "Modeling was just a by
product ofmy singing. like modeling and I wanted to take that up
more than my singing but then I realized that everyone knows
Timeka by her voice. So I gave the people what they wanted! I
gave them back my voice. I did get good reviews from people
when I started to do the modeling gigs. I was grateful for the
experience because I knew as well. other than my singing, I have

From a "teenage regular" to a singing and modeling
"'wonder", Timeka took Guyana by storm when she released her
single "Separate." Not too long after, she hit us with another.
"Nothing at all." TM was now on her way to music history, but the
controversy started when Timeka decided to do a video outside of
Guyana! "Let me clear the air on this," Timeka said, "When the
song was written, I took the material to Kerwin, and then it moved
from there!" Kerwin Boilers, the star's manager, and also a
popular DJ coming out from the Fusion family, was a friend of
Timeka before becoming her manager. "le's a resourceful
person. He knew all the right people, and he advised to me to do
something impressive for a first video! The song was already a hit
so why just do a video for the sake of doing it? It would have been
easier doing the video right here in Guyana, but we don't have
enough know-how for production in Guyana, and quality was one
ofthe main factors of this video".
That was when Timeka and Kerwin approached Music
Media member Dexter... "Dexter advised us to go out of the
country to shoot this video, and Jamaica was the chosen location.
They had everything we needed to get this video the way we
wanted it, but we also had to pay them for the quality that we were
looking for!" And that's where GT&T stepped in! "We
approached GT&T for sponsorship for this video. Of course they
wanted to be assured of the'quality of this video because this ain't
cents that we're talking about here. So they took the chance in
investing and came out with the best results!"
"Separate" was the talk of the town after its launching at
the Pegasus. People obviously had their own views to what they
thought about it, but overall, the video hit the airwaves and
impressed Guyana, although it wasn't shot here.

Timeka went ahead to talk about what it is that inspired
her to write the song, "I was looking at my favorite TV program
MTV, and the video came on from Neyo 'So Sick', and my
thoughts just started flowing from there. So 1 began to write and
before you knew it. after about an hour, 1 was finished writing
One would think that a talented singer like Timeka
would be confident also of her song-writing abilities. For this
young lady it was all different "I never knew that I could write, so
when the thoughts just kept following; I found it strange that it
was me thinking of the words for a song! And so easily at that! I
realized that I had another hidden talent, and I needed to bring that
out more as well!"

So there you have it: from regular school girl to Jingle
competition winner, to model, to song writer! What next can we
.expect from this obvious star in the making?

She went onto say, that Ir ;a : tiu don't kruw what you
have until you try! And as we can see that "trying" is really
working for Ms. Marshall.
"I was testing myself to see what I would come up with
when I came up with this danceh.ll vihe..." referring to another
hit 'Nothing at all'. "I was looking at my favourite TV program
again, and the words started coning. so again I started writing!
\\h n I was finished writing the song, I realized that this song had
nothing to do with me! I was just writing ihat came to my head,
and it worked out!"
Timeka moved from the soulful, innocent character to
the defender ofthe independent ladies. Shortly after, she also tired
a bit of the soca flare when she recorded the Blue Power theme
song with the Fyah Clan band, can we assume that Timeka might
start rapping in the near future?

All in all, Timeka Marshall has shown her growth in the
music industry, moving from strength to strength. With
"Entertainer Kerwin' by her side, the duo of Singer/Manager has
made an impact in Guyana's music today "As I said before,
Kerwin and I were friendsbefore all this Iused to ask him what he
thinks about certain stuffrelating to music because he knew what
out there was all about! He knew what was hot from what wasn't.

So what else did I need to do other than make him manager? As he
said to me,"Timeka you have talent, so youdo the sing thing, and
I'll be the manager."

When asked about her future she quickly stated. "I see
myself in the near future, signed to a record label, going on tours
and living my dream, because it is my dream to make it big in the
music industry.And it's my dream to be signed to a record label"
"I'm grateful that I took the opportunity to participate in the jingle
competition, because since then my life has never been the same!
GT&T made everything possible for me. My manager Kerwin
pushed me as well. He encouraged me to do things I never thought
I could do. I thank my mom and my sister and my other family for
theii support in all that 've accomplished. To the Fusions Crew, a
big shout out to you guys. And to all the people that have
supported me in some way or the other, a big thank you to you!"

Timeka has already started to work on more material
and has promised to bring more to the Guyanese public. She
stated that she's going to do her best to take the music industry in
Guyana to a higher level, and to make her music of such quality
that not only the Guyanese public would appreciate, but the
Caribbean and the world at large.
