THE Government of Guyana
yesterday said it stands ready to
cooperate with the United States
Government and its agencies if
such a request is made follow-
ing the arrest of three Guyanese
for conspiring to commit terror-
ism at the John F. Kennedy

New York.
Minister of Home Affairs
Clement Rohee said the news
was "a very serious develop-
ment," noting that "one can
very well imagine if this crime
was committed the amount of
loss of lives and property that
would have resulted."

The government, in a state-
ment, said it had received the
"shocking news" that the three
Guyanese Abdul Kadir,
Russel De Freitas and Abdel
Nur were held for planning

Ex-Linden Mayor charged in

alleged plot to blow up JFK

FORMER People's National
Congress Reform (PNCR)
Member of Parliament and
Mayor of Linden, Abdul
Kadir, is one of three
Guyanese charged in an al-
leged terror plot to blow up
the John F. Kennedy Airport
in New York.
Kadir, 55, the other two
Guyanese and a Trinidadian,
were Friday charged with con-
spiring to attack the airport by
planting explosives to blow up
its major jet fuel tanks and pipe-
line, the U.S. Justice Depart-
ment and other law enforcement
officials said in a statement.
The attacks would result in
destruction of "the whole of
Kennedy," one suspect said in a
recorded conversation, according
to the statement. He predicted
very few survivors.
Charged with Kadir are
Russell DeFreitas, a U.S. citizen
and native of Guyana who was
arrested in Brooklyn; another
Guyanese Abdel Nur, and
Kareem Ibrahim, a citizen of
Trinidad and Tobago.
U.S. officials said Kadir and
Nur were associates of the
Jamaat Al Muslimeen, which
was behind a deadly coup at-

in the interior.

Trinidad and Tobago Police
Commissioner Trevor Paul, at a
hastily-arranged news confer-
ence yesterday, said FBI offi-
cials Friday informed law en-
forcement officials there of the
alleged plot and that three of the
suspects were in Trinidad.
Paul said law officials re-
sponded to the call and around
11 a.m. on Friday, they arrested
Trinidadian Ibrahim, 56, of Cane
Farm, Tacarigua, on a plane at
Piarco International Airport.
Ibrahim was on an
Aeropostal flight bound for
Caracas when the pilots re-
ceived the call for the aircraft
to return to Piarco. On its
return, Ibrahim was arrested
and taken to the Port-of-
Spain CID where he was
questioned by Special Branch
head, Assistant Commis-
sioner Richard Frederick on
Friday night. He claimed he
was on his way to Caracas to
catch a flight to Iran.
Acting on further informa-
tion, Paul said local police ar-
rested the second suspect,
Abdul Kadir, at Cane Farm and
took him to Police headquarters.

show that a U.S-based
Guyanese named Russel
Mortimer DeFreitas, of
Brooklyn, New York, born in
Georgetown on July 7, 1943,
visited Guyana on April 14,
"Confirmation is being
sought that he is the said per-
son arrested in the U.S.", police
here said.
The accused mastermind
behind the attack is DeFreitas,
a former JFK employee, who al-
legedly said the airport was a
symbol that would put "the
whole country in mourning."
"Anytime you hit
Kennedy, it is the most hurtful
thing to the United States. To hit
Kennedy...They love John F.
Kennedy, he's the
man," he said, according to the
indictment. "It's like you can kill
the man twice."

The plot posed no imme-

"The charges filed today
outline one of the most chilling
plots imaginable, a plot to blow
up the main fuel supply at John
F. Kennedy Airport," said
Brooklyn U.S. Attorney
Roslynn Mauskopf.
According to a federal in-
dictment, DeFreitas had
worked at the airport until
1995, during which time he
said he came up with the ru-
diments of the plan after see-
ing weapons parts shipped
through there to Israel that
he believed would be used to
kill Muslims.
Authorities said they
caught wind of the plot in July
2006, when DeFreitas ap-
proached a confidential govern-
ment informant he knew from
his mosque and began describ-
ing the plan to attack the airport

and tried to enlist him to help
in the plot.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) The

depression Barry

brings rain to Florida
ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (Reuters) The remains of
Tropical Storm Barry brought high winds and heavy rains
to Florida yesterday, but the downpour was welcomed in a
parched state that has been battling stubborn wildfires.
Much of Florida's west coast was feeling the brunt of Barry
by Saturday morning. There were no immediate reports of
storm-related injuries or damage.
Barry formed as a tropical storm on Friday and began pelt-
ing the Tampa Bay area with rain that afternoon. It was down-
graded to a tropical depression with sustained winds near 35
mph late in the morning.
At 5 p.m. EDT the system's poorly defined center had
moved across the state and was close to Jacksonville, in north-
east Florida, and moving north-northeast at about 23 mph, the
National Hurricane Center in Miami said.
That track was expected to take it, as a heavy rainstorm.
up the U.S. East Coast over the next two days. It was not ex-
pected to strengthen into a hurricane and the hurricane center
said it planned no more public advisories on Barry.
All tropical storm warnings and watches were discontin-
ued as Barry weakened. Tropical storms have maximum sus-
tained winds ranging from 39 to 73 mph
Barry was expected to bring several inches of rain to Florida.
Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
That was welcome news in Georgia and in Florida,
which reported hundreds of wildfires in May and rainfall
of less than half of the normal average. Florida officials
said there were 160 fires in progress as of yesterday, down
from 180 on Friday. Friday's rain was the first in Tampa
in 25 days.

The state of health care is in
such a mess that it is to be
probed by the Director of
Public Prosecutions (DPP),
Commissioner of Police and
the Integrity Commission.
In laying the "Report of the
Commission of Enquiry into the
Operation and Delivery of Pub-
lic Health Care Services in
Trinidad and Tobago" in Parlia-
ment Friday, Prime Minister
Patrick Manning said: "In view
of some of the allegations con-
tained in the report and for the
purpose of further transparency
I propose to send a copy of the
report of the commission to the
Director of Public Prosecutions,
the Commissioner of Police and
the Integrity Commission.
Shortly after this announce-
ment, Health Minister John
Rahael said he had no comment.
The report has been laid in
the House on the heels of an
Express editorial calling for the
report to be made public.
The Commission said in its
report that it came across sev-
eral circumstances that, in its
view, warranted special atten-
tion by the Government. "In
some cases, there is evidence of
corruption or other malfea-
sance," stated the report.
Manning said that a techni-
cal committee has been ap-
pointed to prioritise and deter-
mine how best the recommen-
dations of the report should be
implemented with a one-month
Members of this committee
are Myrna Thompson -

ment proposes to launch appro-

In 2004 on the recommen-

tor. The commission comprised

Breathalyser bill

passed in House

After repeated calls by the
Opposition United National
Congress (UNC) for
breathalyser legislation, the
bill, which seeks to minimise
road carnage was passed over-
whelmingly in the House of
Representatives Friday.
Members of the Govern-
ment and Opposition supported
the legislation, which was
passed shortly after 4.30 pm.
But while the vote was be-
ing taken along the Government
bench, Prime Minister Patrick
Manning-who had apparently
dozed off-had to be nudged
by acting Leader of Govern-
ment Business Colm Imbert.
The Motor Vehicles and
Road Traffic Amendment Bill
2006, which had been before a
parliamentary Joint Select Com-
mittee (JSC), was tabled by
Imbert, the Works and Trans-

stickers on many public service vehicless (PSVS) are mak-
ing a dent in indiscipline on the roads.
So says Peter Harris, general manager of Consumer Guar-

two years ago.
The stickers, which all PSVs insured by CGI must carn.
invite people to report them to the company for acts of mdis-
cipline and breaches of the law while the vehicles are on the
Given the drop in collisions and reports of bad driving
by vehicles insured with them, Harris is suggesting that
other general insurance companies should implement the
sticker policy and put the brakes on bad driving and acci-
dents. "We have had a steady improvement from Day 1 to
the point now that the complaints have been reduced sub-
stantially. If I get one or two [complaints] a week I get a

However, the minister, who
had chaired the JSC reviewing
the bill, said legislation govern-
ing cellular phone use on the
nation's roads should come to

few months.
Winding up debate on the
bill, Imbert said cellphone usage
by drivers would factor promi-

was to be drafted to review road

"That's next!" he declared.
Insisting that- alcohol was

THE NEWS that the internationally respected cricket
coach Bob Woolmer had died from natural causes and
was not murdered, as originally clairhed, would have
come as enormous relief for more than his family and
Certainly also for the Pakistan cricket team for which he
was their deeply admired coach. Undoubtedly, as well,
for the Jamaica Government and people, and also the
International Cricket Council (ICC), which had organised
the recently concluded 2007 Cricket World Cup
tournament in the Caribbean.
Indeed, cricket lovers and people of goodwill the world
over would breathe a sigh of relief that the worst fears
over the sudden death of Woolmer have officially been
put to rest, following.the discovery of his body in his hotel

room at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel on March 18-the
day after Pakistan's shock defeat by newcomer Ireland.
According to a report in Britain's "Daily Mail" on Friday,
Woolmer's widow, Gill, who lives in Cape Town, South
Africa, is being officially informed about the latest
conclusion of the extensive investigation that had involved
the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Britain's Scotland Yard,
and Pakistan's security personnel.
Contrary to sustained reports following the discovery of
his body on the floor of his hotel room, it has now been
established that death was not the result of suspected
asphyxia due to manual strangulation.
He is now being reported a man known to have been in
ill-health, who was a diabetic and with a "breathing
problem The final decision? He died from natural
What a sensational, dramatic, though most welcome
about-turn pertaining to the circumstances of his death,
and the agony earlier claims had caused for so many.
A most disturbing aspect of this tragedy is how very
experienced pathologists and respected crime sleuths
could have gotten it all so very wrong-from the
Crime chief and Deputy Police Commissioner of
Jamaica, Mark Shields, a highly reputable officer
recruited from Britain's Scotland Yard to help Jamaica's
anti-crime drive, should be aware that he cannot
easily escape some of the blame for the earlier
misleading reports about the cause of Woolmer's death.
The day after the shocking news of Woolmer's death was
announced, and with the initial report of the post mortem

still inconclusive, Shields said told the media then that
they were pursuing "suspicious circumstances and
implied that the coach was strangled, possibly by more
than one individual.
Some legal luminaries and crime experts were surprised
at the alacrity with which this "suspicious" claim was made
public, and the claim of murder sustained, even as
Scotland Yard continued their investigation-in response
to Shields' enlightened request for help.
One clear lesson to be learnt from the high profile
international case of the Bob Woolmer tragedy is that
those involved in combating crime and investigating
cases of murder-over which there may be conflicting
evidence-must avoid confusing facts with assumptions.
Also quite relevant is the precise scientific information,
as distinct from theories, to be released from post
mortem examinations.

The Symptoms
I have pointed,
previously, to sordid influence-
peddling, abuse of political
power and misuse of state re-
sources for personal gains as
curses that ever so often afflict
very high-profile and
powerful public figures of gov-
ernments; financial institutions,
justice administrations and, yes,
even religious organizations.
The symptoms manifest
themselves in various ways, but
at times escape even the watch-
ful eyes of media as well as
the institutions and



organizations to which such
violators of trust and decent
behaviour are obligated.
Until, of course,
the specific ailment is
diagnosed and public exposure
and condemnation become in-
evitable. Pretending that this or
any other CARICOM state
could be exonerated from such
deformities in its social and po-
litical culture, would be both
silly and hypocritical.
Caribbean politicians are of-
ten quick to go on the offensive
against what they expediently
deem an "intrusive" or
"irresponsible" media, but
which is simply no more than
valid, investigative journalism
against unwholesome influence
peddling, outright corruption
and undermining of democratic

They expediently tend to
overlook how the print and elec-
tronic media in the USA, Brit-
ain and Canada-states with
which CARICOM is deeply
linked-regularly demonstrate
why those elected to govern,
or to head regional and interna-
tional financial and trade insti-
tutions, must be held to scrupu-
lous rules of accountability.
Let it not be ignored, or
mnimised, that t is this cul-
ture of accountability and re-
spect for sensitivity to
public opinion by even the
most powerful and best con-
nected in influence-peddling
that has just made possible the
unprecedented downwfall for
unethical behaviour by a Presi-
dent of the World Bank-Paul

Those heading governments
and major institutions in
CARICOM need to advise
themselves against the conse-
quences of political arrogance,
insensitivity to dissent; intol-
erance for dialogue and sheer
abuse of power that could nega-
tively impact on improved
governance in the national inter-
Cultivating a new politi-
cal culture is a major chal-
lenge for all governing and
opposition parties in

against narco-trafficking,
corruption and other crimes
that undermine the social
and economic health of our
societies and diminish
estabilished human values.

World Bank?

(The writer is a business
consultant and former
Caribbean diplomat)

Bush has nominated Robert
Zoellick to replace Paul
Wolfowitz as the President of
the World Bank. His en-
dorsement by the Board of
the Bank is likely to be ef-
Since the creation of the
World Bank and the Interna-
tional Monetary Fund (IMF),
the convention has developed
that the managing director of the
Fund would come from Europe
and the head of the Bank would
be a nominee of the US Presi-
This accounted for why
Paul Wolfowitz was nominated
and accepted even though many
European governments and
many others around the world
felt that he was a bad choice,
not least because he had a repu-
tation as being part of the neo-
conservative cabal around Presi-
dent Bush and also for being a
hawk in promoting the invasions
of Afghanistan and Iraq and for
the unilateralist style that the
administration developed in in-
ternational relations.
Countries and regions all
over the world will now be
wondering what Mr Zoellick's
appointment means for them.
He has been a faithful servant
of the US government in vari-
ous capacities, more recently as
a Deputy Secretary under
Condoleeza Rice in the State
Department and before that as
the US Trade Representative.
In these last two roles, Mr
Zoellick became well known
to government representative
in many parts of the world
including the Caribbean.
During his stint as US Trade
Representative, he was inti-
mately involved in the nego-
tiations at the World Trade
Organisation (WTO), and he
was active in discussions
across the regions.
He will. therefore, have
some knowledge of the difficul-
ties and problems that confront
these countries.
1 last encountered him in at
a WTO ministerial conference in
Cancun, Mexico when desperate
efforts were being made to get
the Doha round of trade negotia-
tions back on track after years of
failure. He was active then in
trying to build bridges across
huge di\ ides. and in that connec-
tion. lie energetically arranged
meetings with every region.

he said.
Trinidad and Tobago Prime

In any event, many Carib-

from his term of office as the

ought to seek a meeting with
him soon.
Reform of the World
Bank in the interest of the
global community is desper-
ately needed. The glaring
example of this is the fact
that Bank's head must come

a false measure of development
and a poor calculation of needs.
More than anything else it has

Also, in today's world
where small countries are
pushed into huge investment to
beef up port security as part of
the war on terror, and where
trade liberalisation causes dislo-

the areas of priority for which

Flaxseed, ginseng

show benefit in

cancer treatment
By Julie Steenhuysen
CHICAGO, (Reuters) Flaxseed slowed the growth of pros-
tate tumours in men, while ginseng helped relieve the fa-
tigue that cancer patients often feel, U.S. researchers re-
ported yesterday in two of the first scientifically rigorous
looks at alternative medicine.
The studies reflect doctors' efforts to explore the risks and
benefits of foods and supplements that are routinely taken by
their patients with little scientific proof they help.
Americans spend between $36 billion and $47 billion a year
on complementary and alternative therapies, according to the
National Center for Health Statistics.
"Patients are taking these compounds but we need to know
if they are doing any good or any harm," said Dr. Bruce Cheson
of Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, who led a
panel on alternative therapies at a meeting of the American So-
ciety of Clinical Oncology.
In the flaxseed study, researchers at Duke University Medi-
cal Center in North Carolina and colleagues evaluated the seed's
role as a food supplement in 161 men who were scheduled to
undergo surgery for prostate cancer.
"The growth rate was decreased in the men who got
flaxseed," said Dr. Nancy Davidson, an oncologist at Johns
Hopkins University in Baltimore who is president-elect of
ASCO. "I think this is fascinating."
Flaxseed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, a fibre
found on the seed coat.
"We were looking at flaxseed because of its unique nutrient
profile," said Wendy Demark-Wahnefried, a researcher in Duke's
School of Nursing, who led the study.
Half of the men in the study added 30 grams of flaxseed
daily to their diets for about 30 days. Half of the flaxseed group
also went on a low-fat diet.
After the surgery, the researchers looked at the men's tu-
mour cells to see how quickly the cancer had multiplied.
The cancer cells in both the flaxseed groups grew about 30
to 40 per cent slower than the control group.
But Demark-Wahnefried is not ready to prescribe flaxseed.
"It's a healthy food. It has a lot of vitamins and a
lot of fibre. But we can not definitively say at this
point you should take flaxseed because it is protec-
tive against prostate cancer," she said, adding that flax-
seed now needed to be studied to see if it can prevent
prostate cancer.
In the ginseng trial, Debra Barton of the Mayo Clinic in
Rochester, Minnesota, and colleagues tested three different
doses of the herb on patients with a variety of cancers who
were expected to live at least six months.
Twenty-five per cent of patients taking a 1,000-mg dose
and 27 per cent of patients taking a 2,000-mg dose said their

A study in mice shows that cigarette smoke caused changes

The Greater Ministry la

Caribbean This Week IndeDendence



the Rum Dialogue

in the Greater


By: Manuel Madriz

AS OUTLINED IN Article III of the Convention Establish-
ing the ACS, one of the objectives of the Association of
Caribbean States (ACS) is to harness the collective capa-
bilities of its Members in its different areas, as well as
consultation, co-operation and concerted action.
One area that involves "collective capabilities" par excel-
lence in the Greater Caribbean is the Rum industry, whose ori-
gin lies specifically in this zone. However, we cannot say that
it stands alone. Just like Rum, there is a series of collective
capabilities in the Greater Caribbean that can also be strength-
ened, for example, the banana industry, the sugar industry and
the coffee and tobacco industries, to name a few.
The issue of Rum in the Greater Caribbean was introduced
to the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) in 2002 at the
request of the West Indies Rum and Spirits Producers' Asso-
ciation (WIRSPA), under the chairmanship of Mr. Patrick
Mayers, and was a new initiative that focused on establishing
rapprochement within the Rum industry of the Greater Carib-
bean, which included both the Island and Continental Carib-
bean. The CARICOM Rum industry was the major partici-
pant in that initiative, which was organised around WIRSPA,
the Netherlands Antilles, Aruba, France, (representing
Martinique, Guadeloupe and French Guiana), the Rum Indus-
try of the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Venezuela, Guatemala
and Nicaragua, in addition to which there was participation from
several member countries interested in the matter.
This effort was undertaken in the framework of a working
group of the ACS Trade Committee referred to as the Rum Dia-
logue, as part of the negotiation process of the Free Trade
Treaty of the Americas (FTAA) and was geared toward dis-
covering a common definition of rum, for the Greater Carib-
bean. As we are all aware, for its own reasons, the FTAA has
been suspended and consequently, the Rum Dialogue meetings
have also been halted, without agreement being reached on the
matter concerning the common definition of Rum.
The lack of agreement regarding the definition has not
proven to be an obstacle because five years later, proposals
are being presented for a reunion of the Rum industry, with a

that although the occasion was

would be done at a later date.

Rohee tells of firm

measures against

noise nuisance
Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee has reiterated that the
campaign against noise nuisance will continue and firm mea-
sures will be instituted during the second phase of the cam-
paign which will begin soon as the first phase has concluded.
Rohee told this newspaper that the first phase targeted
sensitising the public to the problem and increasing public aware-
ness, and in this regard advertisements were placed in the newspa-
Now that the first phase has been completed, the second phase
will begin. This will include stern action against those guilty of
creating a noise nuisance. Rohee stressed.
However, he declined to give details of the intended action in
order not to compromise the effectiveness of the exercise.
During last month. Rohee had signalled that his Ministry will
begin a crackdown on the noise nuisance which has been affecting
many communities across the country, with zero tolerance being
its prime objective.
He had disclosed that he was in receipt of numerous written;
and oial complaints, most of which were found to be factual, and
the bulk of the complaints received were mostly from the East Coast
Demerara, and to a lesser .e:xent from Georgetowxn.
He conceded that the noise nuisance has become a burning is-
sue which must be addressed as it is causing serious physical dam-
age, such as the cracking of glass windows, health problems and
Rohee observed that in previous campaigns. police ranks were
not acting in a satisfactory manner and this has contributed to the
problem continuing to escalate. He had discussions with the Com-
inissioner of Police to put in place measures to ensure that the ranks
institute the campaign in a diligent manner and they "go all out"
with a "zero tolerance" attitude.
The penalty for a first time offender is $7,500 and three
months' imprisonment, while for a repeat offender, it is $10,000
and six months' imprisonment.

The Dynamics of Change

By Rev. Kwame Gilbert

Max Wayes, in his writings
The Era of Radical Change ,
says that change has always
been a part of the human con-
dition .What is different now
is the pace of change, and the
prospect that it will come
faster affecting every part of
life including personal val-
ues morality ,and religion ,
which seem almost remote
from technology ...
So swift is the acceleration
,that trying to make sense of
change will become our basic in-
dustry .
As we grow and progress
both as individuals and as a na-
tion, we all will have the task
of understanding and managing
the inevitable changes that are
taking place all around us.
Changes in the socio-political
context, introduced as a part of
government's economic policies,
create some significant chal-
lenges for many on a wider
This comes at a time when
universally there is a global shift
in world trends. Changes can
cause people much insecurity.
There is always tension be-
tween change and continuity.
Many of us have grown up un-
der relatively stable and predict-
able circumstances, and as such,
any thing that threatens the sta-
bility or order of our day to day
lives, the first reaction is gener-
ally one of apprehension and

hostility. It is im- T'
portant for us to
settle in our minds
that change is the
only constant in
the world around
us and the pace of
change is quicken-
It is of abso-
lute necessity that
as we continue to
pursue a greater
understanding of
the global changes
and challenges.
We as Guyanese must fa-
miliarize ourselves with the
changing trends that are occur-
ring every day around the world.
People are generally comfortable
with the way things are and as
such whenever changes chal-
lencge them to stretch to think
outside of the box they oppose
it almost universally .
On the other hand for
those whose responsibility it is
to introduce change here is a
word of caution to you Resis-
tance to change should not be
seen as an obstacle but can be
utilized as valuable to the pro-
cess of change, for the follow-
ing reasons:
1. It clarifies the purpose of
the change and the desired re-
2. It discloses inadequate
communication processes and
insufficient flow of information.
Both are essential to an at-
tempted change.

3. It reveals unexpected con-
sequences, both immediate and
long-term; resulting from the
proposed change .The unex-
pected consequences can be di-
sastrous .Resistance can provide

clues for the prevention of such
Ultimately. change is inevi-
table, and if managed well. pro-
vides great opportunities for good.
An old man was visited one
day by a journalist seeking in-
formation on the history of a
particular community. Recog-
nizing the wealth of information
garnered over the years, the jour-
nalist asked. "You must have
seen quite a lot of changes'?" To
this the old man replied, "Yea!
And I have been against every
one of them."
The sad thing about people
is that they oppose change be-
fore taking time to understand
the nature and purpose of
change. Some changes can be in-
conm enient for individuals, but

beneficial to a nation. Such
changes should be embraced and
supported, keeping in mind its
moral and spiritual rightness .
Moral and spiritual moor-
ings must never be traded for
economic gains. For any nation
to develop, governments must
explore and experiment with
new social and economic ideas
and concepts. Some of these
ideas may at times not serve
the general interest of the
people, hence the need for pub-
lic consultation and consensus.
Some ideas may also violate the
religious freedoms of the
peoples of the country. Some
may even create an environ-
ment of temporary social dis-
comfort or even destabilization.
The important thing to know in

such processes is that educa-
tion of and consultation with
the stakeholders are the two
most critical components to
this process.
There can be no high
handed approach that ignores
the fears and concerns ex-
pressed by those affected by
change. Consideration must be
given with a view to clarifying
the issues raised by the affected
parties in the process of change.
To not do so smacks of dicta-
torship, and such an approach
has no place in a free world
Change can only work
for good when it is under-
stood and undertaken in a
spirit of community. All must
be involved.

strip-mining. The schools of fish
are located electronically, few
individuals escape the huge nets,
and no area of the ocean is left
alone long enough for the stocks
to recover.
"At this point, 29 percent
of fish and seafood species
have collapsed; that is, their
catch has declined by 90 per-
cent," explained Prof. Boris
Worm of Dalhousie University
late last year. "It is a very

clear trend, and it is accelerat-

predicted, all fish and seafood
species that are fished com-
mercially will collapse by
Individual fishermen, up to
their ears in debt for their high-
tech boats and equipment, can-
not reverse this trend because
they have to go on fishing. Gov-
ernments could cut the huge
subsidies they give to their fish-
ermen, and above all to the bot-
tom-trawlers that are systemati-
cally turning the floors of the
world's oceans to mud, but they

SUNDAY CHRONICLE June 3, 2007 13




By Ron Cheong

THE many places where mo-
rality and the law intersect
are happy occurrences not
necessary ones
What is legal is not neces-
sarily moral and vice-versa.
In a societal context, moral-
ity refers to what is considered
right or wrong in particular cul-
tures. In a more religious sense
it is thought of in terms of good
and evil, and how that is re-
flected in behaviour. -
While most laws in demo-
cratic societies may be ethical in
the sense that they reflect and
uphold values of the societies
that put them in place, they are
not necessarily moral in the
sense that they all uphold uni-
versally accepted and unchang-
ing moral values or behaviours.
Murder is an example of an
act universally held to be im-
moral. This is an unambiguous
case where the law and moral-
ity intersect and are in agree-
ment. Societies around the
world embrace laws against
murder and these laws are re-
garded as well grounded in
moral code.
However, not all moral
standards are so universally
agreed upon or are so solidly
entrenched. Some moral con-
cepts go through metamorpho-
ses, changing with the views of
society. And with changing
sentiments some acts previously
regarded as immoral may gain
greater acceptance, and eventu-
ally come to be accepted inside
the moral code.
Just a few years ago, for ex-
ample, homosexuality was
viewed as deviant sexual

behaviour. However, in many
countries today, the right to
same-sex marriage is finding
support in the law courts and
the media.
Changes also run in the op-
posite direction, with what was
previously accepted as upright
moral conduct now being
frowned upon. Corporal pun-
ishment enjoyed a long period
of acceptance as a necessary aid
in raising children. But it is now
illegal to spank your children in
seventeen countries. No doubt
the parents who support
spanking see this as a means of
instilling the right values in their
children, while proponents of
the legislation see spanking it-
self as wrong.
There are no absolutely
right or wrong answers that
would satisfy everybody in the
two examples above. These is-
sues are very personal, and up-
standing people on both sides
come to completely different
conclusions. Even judges, with
all their training and wisdom
have no better chance of arriv-
ing at a "correct" answer.
What can be said is that the
laws governing these matters
have been placed on the books
democratically through the
votes of the elected representa-
tives of a majority of the soci-
eties. And judges adjudicate
these issues, where the commu-
nity is not of one mind, on the
basis of those laws. Moreover
the opportunity exists to
modify these laws if enough
people feel that, as they stand,
these laws aren't serving
society's best interests or they
are infringing on basis freedoms
that ought to be left to the dis-

creation of the individual.
For citizens that agree with
a particular law (say on spank-
ing), that law is both moral and
democratic. On the other hand
a citizen may feel the law is in
error. In which case, at least it's
democratic even though it
would not occupy the moral
high ground for that person.
The fact that something is
democratic only means that it is
the will of a majority of the
people. It does not mean that
the choice is without mistake or
that it can't get us off the rails.
In fact, it may be a hallmark
of democracy that the people
get to choose regardless of the
wisdom of their choice.
Thomas Hobbes would tell
us that this is just one of the
compromises that we make to
live in society. He describes a
state of nature in which every-
one is free to do as he pleases.
A man can kill his neighbour,
drag the neighbour's mate off or
steal his cattle, with no legal
consequences whatsoever. The
trouble is that he is also subject

to the same danger someone
else in turn can come along and
burn his shelter down, injure
him or take his goods away.
Obviously this is not a sat-
isfactory state of affairs.
People would be constantly liv-
ing in fear, watching their backs
for the slightest hint of a threat.
In a self-interested move,
people agreed to give up certain
rights "to" in exchange for rights
"from". For example, men
jointly gave up the right to tres-
pass on their neighbours plot
and in turn received the right to
be free from attacks in the night.
In other words they entered a
social contract in which they
gain certain civil rights in return
for placing their actions under
the jurisdiction of a common
authority and subjecting them-
selves to certain penalties for
breaking the rules.
In a democracy the author-
ity charged with adjudicating
these rules is the courts. The
elected representatives of the
people pass laws and the courts
apply the laws to disputes

brought before them. Each de-
mocracy has an established
body of common law handed
down over the years.
These laws have to accom-
modate the stage of develop-
ment a society or country is in.
And laws from other jurisdic-
tions, might not in some in-
stances, fully accommodate lo-
cal conditions and customs -
just as American Democracy is
not transferable to Iraq at this
But the law is by no means
static. Challenges arise from

time to time which may cause a
rethinking of existing law and the
extent to which it is reflective
of current societal values.
There is debate, for example
around what are called victim-
less crimes. Proponents for the
legalization of prostitution argue
that this is simply an agreement
between consenting adults who
agree to payment of a specified
amount in exchange for a ser-
vice. If the transaction is com-
pleted to the satisfaction of

awaited 'movement' on the
issue last week.
The U.S.-based developers,
led by Mr. Romeo Cipriani,
have been awaiting an assess-
ment from the Environmental
Assessment Board (EAB) and
the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) for an environ-
mental permit.
When contacted, Executive
Director of the EPA, Mr.
Doorga Persaud, disclosed that
the EAB on Friday formally
submitted a number of recom-
mendations to the EPA.
He said the EPA will now
have to examine those recom-
mendations and will formally
communicate the position in re-
lation to these recommenda-
tions to Mr. Cipriani.
Prime Minister Sam Hinds,
in an invited comment to the
Sunday Chronicle, made it clear
that the issue does not fall di-
rectly under his portfolio, and
is one that is currently at the
level of the EPA.
He, however, offered that
one possible reason why the
project is delayed is the sheer
size of the investment and the
need to ensure that all criteria
are met before it can proceed
"I think the problem with
this project is that if you are ac-
customed to build a house and
then you jump to build a sky-
scraper, you will obviously have
a lot more work to do...," the
Prime Minister asserted.
"Things are very much I think this
project is suffering maybe from
a first-time problem," he added
during a telephone comment.
".This is a major, major in-
vestment lor this country and I
amn extremely pleased to learn
that there has been some move-
ment on the issue," Mr. Seo
Persaud. Company Secretary/
Director of Crab Island Refin-
ery Incorporated (CIRI) com-
mnented yesterday.
"This project can start
within one week of the granting
of the permit." he assured.
"We knew the Government
was supportive of this invest-

ment and we're very happy that
the process in moving forward,"
Persaud said, adding that "fund-
ing is available; we are just wait-
ing on the permit."
Persaud also noted that in
spite of the lengthy delays, he
and Cipriani were always opti-
mistic the current snags would
be ironed out shortly.
In an earlier interview with
this newspaper, CIRI President,
Mr. Cipriani, had expressed
similar optimism that the snags
will be ironed out.
Cipriani the overseas-
based Guyanese investor said
the processes leading up to ac-
quiring the necessary permit, as
outlined in a Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) signed
with the government just over
a year ago, were proceeding
smoothly but suddenly hit a
snag at the level of the EAB.
In April last year, the gov-
ernment signed the MOU with

CIRI to set up an oil refinery
at Crab Island.
The refinery, is projected to
be built in stages with an initial
capacity of about 20,000 barrels
a day of crude, rising to 100.000
barrels a day in five years.
When the MOU was
signed, the developers envisaged
that construction could start
within nine months with even-
tual employment of 1,000 per-
sons, and first production could
start within a further 15
"There is a need for such a
refinery in Guyana. Energy is a
lifeline of any country and this
could be better if you have
cheap energy, reasonably priced
energy," Cipriani told the Sun-
'day Chronicle.
A Berbician, Cipriani is the
sponsor and developer of the
project and said his financial

both parties, each party leaves satisfied with haven gotten what
they wanted out of the transaction.
Opponents of prostitution often do not make a frontal at-
tack on the above claims. Instead they argue that outside of
the moral issues, prostitution spawns an environment of crime,
drug addiction and disease not conducive to a flourishing com-
Other contentious issues include the death penalty (take a
life for taking a life) abortion (a women's health issue vs. a moral
issue), personal use of marijuana (tobacco, liquor, other medi-
cations are legal) assisted suicide (dignified choice in terminal
illness) and stem cell research (potential cures using human em-
There are no magic bullets that will solve these difficult
questions. No single answers to each of these issues that would
satisfy everybody.
But that is part of the social contact of living in a democ-
racy. People give up some rights in exchange for others.
On the whole everybody gain more than they' loose. What
people give up is more than compensated for by other rights
they value more. like the right to security, free speech. to own
personal property, to follow their religion of choice or not fol-
low a religion, etc.

when he said: Democracy is the worst form of govern-
ment except for all the other forms tried.

ies and construction.
"Guyana has still not hit the jackpot in terms of finding oil.
The misconception is sometimes that you can't have a refinery
it you don't have crude. There are a lot of places in the world
with refineries where crude doesn't exist," he said.
The refinery, he said, is slated to purchase crude petroleum
on the world market and sell its products on the world market.
Cipriani said he has been pursuing this project since 2003,
and the incurred development cost to date is more than US$2M,
acquired primarily through the company's equity investors.
The New York-based businessman, who is currently in
Guyana, said that during this period, he has travelled to Guyana
monthly and has been in continuous discussions with a number
of government agencies and officials.
These included the Office of the Prime Minister, the Guyana
Office for the Environmental Protection Agency ,
the Guyana Energy Authority the Guyana La-!d 2d1 Surveys
Commission, the Guyana Maritime Administration and the EAB.
Cipriani said he is ready for the ground-breaking ceremony
which will initiate the commencement of civil works followed
by the construction of the facilities.
He said state-of-the-art refinery technology will be em-
pieyed to produce a variety of products which de pre-

circumstance show that one
owner ought justly to pay more
than the other.
"The absence of these
drains does not only constitute
a breach but also compromises
the health of local communities

Council said.

The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) wishes to
inform concerned parties that the transitional
arrangement period for the Registration of Motor
Vehicles and Motor Cycles under the previous
Consumption Tax and Purchase Tax regime has ended
on May 31,2007.

Effective June 1, 2007, all motor vehicles and motor
cycles imported will be subjected to the payment of duty,
Excise tax, and VAT where applicable prior to being
registered, irrespective of any Consumption Tax
previously paid.


Policy 6 VAT and Capital Equipment

The following forms the guiding principle with respect to capital items:

Schedule 1, paragraph 2(aa) of the Value-Added Tax (VAT) Act provides for the zero rating of the following:
"the first import, after the coming into operation of the VAT Act, of one of each large capital item. Such as
a bulldozer, excavator, tractor, or similar heavy duty industrial machinery by a person who invests in
these items, provided that on the day prior to the coming into operation of the VAT Act the import of the
item by the person was subject to consumption tax at a rate of zero percent and that the import is not
subject to an investment agreement, and further, provided the zero-rating of subsequent imports of these
items are allowed under conditions and restrictions that may be prescribed by the Minister."

However, while zero rated status is given to the first import of one of each large capital item, this does not mean
each item on the first shipment, but rather one of each different type of item on the consignment.

Therefore if a shipment contains, for example, three bulldozers and two excavators, then only one of each will
be zero rated.

It should also be noted that where one of each item is imported in more than one shipment, then each new item
will attract the zero rate. For example, if the first bulldozer comes in shipment I and the first tractor comes in
shipment 2, then the zero rate will apply to both items.

However, zero rating is not automatic. In order for importers to obtain this benefit, they must make an
application to the Remission Unit of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) 357 Lamaha and East Streets.

Further, under paragraph 2(aa) of schedule 1 of the VAT Act subsequent imports of large capital items may be
zero rated provided that the conditions and restrictions prescribed by the Minister are satisfied. The conditions
and restrictions are that:

1. The equipment cannot be leased, sold or transferred to any other person within five (5) years from the
date of issue of the Commissioner-General's (CG) letter.

2. The importer is required to submit to the Remission Unit on an annual basis NIS and Income Tax
Compliance for the next five years.-

3. The importer must be registered for VAT and submit a copy of his/her VAT registration to the
Remission Unit within three months from the date of issue of the CG letter.

Again, application for zero rating with regard to subsequent imports is to be made to the Remission Unit of the
GRA and a letter will be issued to allow for the zero rating.

Where dealers .import the equipment, arrangements are in place for these to be warehoused upon security for
taxes being lodged in the form of a financial bond. It is only when the equipment is ex-wvarehoused that VAT
will become due. In this instance zero rating for specific large capital items of equipment will be granted to the
person using the equipment by way of CG letter.

PPP delegation impressed with China's socio-economic landscape

GENERAL Secretary of the
People's Progressive Party
(PPP), Donald Ramotar, who,
along with a party delegation
visited the People's Republic
of China (PRC) from May 10
to May 19 last, at the invita-
tion of the Chinese Commu-
nist Party, has indicated that
the delegation was very im-
pressed with the vast trans-
formation of the Chinese
socio-economic landscape.
Speaking at a press confer-
ence last Thursday at the
party's Robb Street Freedom
House Headquarters, Ramotar
declared: "The PPP delegation
was greatly impressed at the
tremendous strides that the
PRC has made since it started
its reforms in 1978. In just un-
der three decades China has
moved rapidly to becoming one
of the most important economic
powers of the world. The Chi-
nese economy is now recognized
as one of the main driving forces
in the world economy."
Ramotar disclosed that in its

interaction with Chinese offi-
cials, the delegation stressed the
PPP's support for a one China
policy, adding that it has been
the position held since the for-
mation of the party in 1950.
Shortly after the formation
of the PRC in 1949, following
the triumph of the revolution
led by the Chinese leader Mao-
Tse-Tung, a breakaway faction
opposed to the revolution de-
clared itself independent of the
PRC and formed a parallel
country referred to as Taiwan.
Ramotar said the delegation
was particularly impressed
with the efforts that are being
made by the party and Chinese
government in solving the many
problems they confront, espe-
cially in the rural districts.
"The new Pudong District
in the city of Shanghai is testi-
mony to the tremendous ad-
vances of China in recent de-
cades. In seventeen years the
Chinese people have built a
huge, modem city which finan-
cial transactions rivals any in the

world," Ramotar observed.
He added that the delegation
saw the enormous works being
undertaken to deal with environ-
mental issues, pointing out that
Beijing is becoming green as
trees are being planted to im-

prove the atmosphere there.
The delegation also visited
Hanan and Hunan Provinces,
Ramotar said. where it met with
officials of the Communist
Party and government and was
briefed on the work that was

done to improve the quality of
life of the people in the interior
Ramotar reflected too that
while in Hunan Province, the
delegation visited the house
where Chairman Mao-Tse-Tung

was born and laid a wreath a
the monument to his memory.
Ramotar also indicated
that the visit further
strengthened relations be
tween the PPP and the Com
munist Party of China.

PM Arthur on

second China visit

BRIDGETOWN-Prime Minister Owen Arthur is sched-
uled to leave today on a one-week official visit to the
People's Republic of China.
The journey to Beijing, second for the Prime Minister in
,five years, coincides with 30 years of diplomatic relations and
!strengthened friendship between Barbados and China.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economic Devel-
opment, Mia Mottley, in toasting the 30th anniversary of the
Bridgetown-Beijingdiplomatic connection, commended China's
commitment to respect the sovereignty of all nations, "irrespec-
tive of their size or resources..."
This commitment by China, said Mottley, in responding to
a toast at the reception hosted by current Chinese ambassador
to Barbados, Liu HuanXing, has significantly benefited the Bar-
badian people over the last 30 years and has "rivaled that of
many other countries in our post-independence period...."
The contributions from China, Minister Mottley pointed out,
ranged from "more tangible monuments such as the Garfield Sobers
Gymnasium and the Cheapside Market to the intangibles of schol-
arships and assistance in security to the Barbados Defence Force.
Ahead of us", she added, "we are working on assistance
foe the construction of the Fairchild Street Market and the fea-
sibility study for the redevelopment of the National Stadium
and its ultimate funding, if feasible..."
Earlier, the Chinese ambassador, stressing the value his coun-
try placed on maintaining good relations with Barbados, noted
that bilateral "mutually beneficial cooperation" in the fields of
economic and trade, have developed "by leaps and bounds" with
volume of trade totalling over BDS$100 million n 2006.
Prime Minister Arthur's visit is expected to further elevate
the significance of China-Barbados relations .It is taking place
at a time of contrast in the changed relationship in another
CARICOM state, St.Lucia, which last month jettisoned diplo-
matic ties with Beijing for a return to relations with Taiwan.
Praising Barbados for sustaining and deepening its "One
China" policy, the Chinese ambassador said that China "attaches
great importance to the development of relations with the Car-
ibbean Community'.
Beijing, he explained, now has a "Special Envoy for
Caribbean Affairs", and.Barbados had made a worthwhile
contribution to such a policy.

welcomes new Managing Director.

The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of Republic Bank
(Guyana) Limited welcome new Managing Director, Mr. Edwin
Gooding, who assumes office on June 5, 2007.

Edwin Gooding, a career banker with over twenty-nine years of
banking experience as part of the Republic Bank Group, has played
a very active role in the Bank's growth over the years.

tHe joined Republic Bank in 1978 as a Graduate Trainee,
immediately, after graduating from Concordia University, Montreal,
with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree. Joining the Bank on the
Graduate Trainee fast track programme gave Mr. Gooding early
exposure to a Management perspective of several key areas of
banking. These include operations, administration, foreign
exchange, and credit specialization.

Following this, his career with the Bank progressed rapidly and
he became Area Credit Manager, with responsibility for a cluster
of branches. Even as his career developed, Mr. Gooding continued
to work on his professional development, and in 1995, completed
the Executive MBA from University of the West Indies Institute of
Business (UWI-IOB).

Mr. Gooding then assumed the post of Assistant General Manager
of Group Marketing Department, a position he held until Group
Marketing merged with Group Corporate Communications in

He has since acted as Managing Director of Barbados National
Bank inc. and Republic Bank (Grenada) Limited respectively.

The Bank extends a very warm welcome to Mr. Edwin Gooding
and looks forward to continued growth and success under his

Bajans told:

Be on the


2007 hurricane season.
In the Caribbean, hurricanes are a fact of life. For half the
year, from June until November, people of the region are on
the alert as hurricanes and tropical storms brush close to home
or hit directly.
Or at least they should be on alert.
However, just Friday, co-ordinator of the Caribbean Disas-
ter Emergency Response Agency, Jeremy CoUymore. bemoaned
the fact that too often, Caribbean people only wake up to the
dangers of hurricanes in times of crisis.
"We have seen that after every major event in the region
there has been some significant change in policy at several lev-
els. What we are saying is that it is unfortunate that we would
need the events to trigger the kind of response that we are see-
ing. We should not see a hurricane as an outside thing. It is a
part of our environment and we have to live with it," said
He also emphasised that hurricane preparedness cannot just
be the preserve of the authorities but of everyone. With a veiled
reference to 2005's Hurricane Katrina, he said: "We preach per-
sonal responsibility.
"As we have seen
there is no state, no matter how well resource. that can
meet all of the needs of an impacted communitN within a
timeframe that satisfies individuals."
So how prepared are we to defend life, limb and property
against the ravages of a hurricane I
The SATURDAY SUN contacted head of Barbados' disas-
ter management agency,
the Central Emergency Relief Orgarusation (CEROI, Judy
Thomas. She said CERO has been gearing up for the start of
the season, doing the '"usual things we do every year".
"We reoew plans. committee', of CERO meet, Barbadians
are urged to get themselves read. TheN kuno%,
what a hurricane can do," she said.
She said the recently -concluded Cricket World Cup 2(i07
honed CERO's preparedness, as staff. volunteers and ihe armed
forces went through intensive disaster response training
"'We hiae just had a iwo-and-half year concentration on
Cncket World Cup. We are expecting thja the preparations will
stand d us in good stead."

Collymore noted the custom is a holdover from the
days when principals tended to live in near to or even at
their schools and said it was a "region-wide issue".

HARIPUR, Pakistan (Reuters)
- Thousands turned out to
greet Pakistan's suspended
chief justice as he traveled to
a northwestern town yester-
day to muster support for his
legal battle against President
Pervez Musharraf's attempt
to sack him.
Chants of "Go Musharraf
Go", that have become a signa-
ture of the three-month-old ju-
dicial crisis, were raised as Chief

Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry
passed through towns and vil-
lages on his way to address the
legal fraternity in Abbottabad.
Along the way, Aitzaz Ahsan,
the leader of the legal team defend-
ing Chaudhry against charges of
misconduct, delivered a sharp ri-
poste to a statement of support for
General Musharraf issued by the
army's top brass a day earlier..
"Our movement cannot be
stopped through barrels of

guns, or through the threat of
tanks and army. We will con-
tinue our struggle." Ahsan said
to applause from a crowd of
over 3,000 in the town of
Lawyers and the opposition
see the March 9 suspension of
Chaudhry as an attack on the inde-
pendence of the judiciary and their
protest has turned into a broad
campaign for the restoration of full
democracy in the country.

"The constitution gives the
people of Pakistan the right to nile
the country. We will no longer al-
low any army general to rule the
country." Ali Ahmed Kurd. an-
other member of Chaudhrv's legal
team. told opposition activists in
Analysts suspect
Musharraf's motive for seeking
to oust the judge stems from
fears of an adverse ruling should
the opposition raise constitu-
tional challenges against the
president's plans to seek a sec-
ond five-year term in the next
few months.

Lebanon army blasts

camp, militants vow

to fight on

(Reuters) Lebanese troops
pounded suspected positions
of al Qaeda-inspired mili-
tants to dislodge them from
their hideouts at a Palestin-
ian refugee camp on Satur-
day but the group vowed it
would not surrender.
"There is no way we will
give up our weapons because it
is our pride. We cannot even
contemplate surrendering." Abu

Salim Taha, spokesman for the
Fatah al-Islam militants, told
Reuters by telephone from in-
side Nahr al-Bared camp in
north Lebanon.
Amid the constant thud of
explosions and crackle of
machinegun fire, smoldering
fires and plumes of black and
white smoke billowed from
many of the camp's bombed-out
Soldiers fired barrages of ar-

tillery shells and mortar bombs,
leveling the camp's two highest
buildings and leaving others in
smoking ruins.
The fighting, which erupted
on May 20, is Lebanon's worst
internal violence since the 1975-
1990 civil war. The government
says militants triggered the siege
by attacking army positions
around the camp and Lebanon's
second largest city, Tripoli.
Lebanon's anti-Syrian cabi-
net say Fatah al-lslam is a Syr-
ian tool, but Damascus denies
any links to the group and says
its leader. Shaker al-Abssi, is on

Syria's wanted list.
Lebanon has been split by
a deep seven-month-old politi-
cal crisis over the opposition's
demands for more say in gov-
ernment. The opposition in-
cludes Syria's allies, led by,
A French-made Gazelle
army helicopter fired two rock-
ets and machnegun barrages at
targets on the camp's coastal
side by the Mediterranean, and
later two helicopters buzzed
over the camp. Lebanese navy
gunboats also took part in the

G14 to press Jwith

federation pl1a

PARIS. (Reuters) The president of the'G14 grp of lead-
ing European soccer ckas rejected on Friday criticism rom
soccer's governing bodies and said he would press on with
plans to create a federation of 40 or pore dubs
Jean-Michel Aulas. who is also chairman of French cham-
pion-; Olympique Lyon, said he was surprised at the calls from
UEFA President Michel Platini and FIFA President Sepp Blatter
for the G14 to disband.
"This federation will be a constructive force towards FIFA
and UEFA." Aulas was quoted as saying in an id~erview with
French daily Le Monde. ,,
'Membership of the federation will be based on UEFA's
club rankings," he said.
The G14, which comprises 18 of the most powerful soc-
cer dubs in Europe, is due to meet in Paris later this month
to hammer out details of Its planned federation, Le Monde
The aim was to expand the federation from 2008 to include
clubs in Asia, Africa and the Americas.
"We will of course meet Michel Platini and Sepp Blattwr."
Aulas was quoted as saying.
The G14 has clashed with FIFA for backing Belgian club
Charleroi in a landmark case seeking compensation fora player
injured %while representing his country. The case was referred
to Europe's highest court earlier this month.
A similar case involving Aulas's Lyon is pending.
Platini said on Monday he would like to see UEFA's
newly-created Professional Football Strategy Council be-
come the forum for the sport to settle its quarrels and
called on the G 14 to disband sentiments echoed by Blatter
on Thursday.

Essien brings joy to

Ghanaian children

By Orla Ryan

ACCRA, (Reuters) Michael Essien brought a little Pre-
mier League magic to hundreds of excited Ghanaian chil-
dren when he turned up to play with them and pose for
photos yesterday.
The dilapidated children's park in the steamy African city
of Accra is a world away from the plush training facilities en-
joyed by Premier League aristocrats Chelsea.
The London club made its first humanitarian visit to Africa
this week, sending Ghana international Essien, manager Jose
Mourinho and several young players to support the work of
charity Right to Play, which uses sport to raise awareness about
poverty, disease and war.
By eight o'clock yetserday morning, small crowds had
gathered to watch and cheer the apparently shy Chelsea
Player of the Year, taking pictures of him on their mobile
"He is a good player. he has made Ghana proud, he has
made the whole of Africa proud." said police motorbike rider
Osei Agyckum. who escorted the star and team to the park.
"I think he is a cool guy and handsome and humble," said
14-year-old Collins Asare.
The only ones disappointed were journalists, as Essien de-
clined to talk to them.
Ghanaians are passionate about soccer.
The game is frequently played here by barefoot chil-
dren on street corners with little more than a tin can to
kick about, a far cry from the facilities on offer at top Eu-
ropean clubs.
"The facilities, the mud huts we have seen ... I was expect-
ing it because I have seen it on television but the fact that young
children have to go and play on gravel with no shoes is amaz-
ing." said Chelsea youth player Sam Hutchinson. "It was my
first time to Africa, it won't be my last."
Mourinho was not present on Saturday but in a statement
distributed by Chelsea he said the club had a responsibility to
use its crowd-drawing power to try to help children around
the world facing disease, conflict and poverty.
"Football can and should help with this ... It is a world
language." he said.
"If you are in London, Lisbon or Accra, if you put down
two pieces of clothing for a goal and wrap some paper into
a ball and start to kick it, everyone knows what ytbb are
doing ........ ............. -. ... ...-"

Guyana U-23's lose...
From back page
to be the decisive factor with a very questionable call for
hand ball in the area by substitute Philbert Moffatt in the
78th minute.
In making a clean sliding tackle on the ball which was being
sought in the area by Limon the ball rebounded, and obvious to the
eyes present except the ref, accidently struck the hand of Moffatt
and Pinas pointed to the Penalty Mark.
The gift was gleefully accepted by Limon who hit hard and
low beyond the outstretched right hands of Durant for the win-
Technical Director, Jamal Shabazz in summing up
Guyana's performance opined,"I thought we had a gutsy per-
formance but the Surinamese showed superior fitness and bet-
ter ability to play under these conditions, and this is of con-
cern to me.
Fitness is a key factor and a lot of our players are still not up
to the fitness level that is required."
Shabazz, like most present at the game, in describing the
conditions claimed,"It ranks highly among the worst condi-
tions I have seen a football match played under. It was never
suited to play a game, when you look at how the ball cannot
roll for five meters. Ninety percent of the field was challeng-
ing to play on."
The Trinbagonian also stated that the outstanding effort in goal
by Durant was responsible for Guyana not losing by a wider mar-

Surinamese roots won their opening game last Friday overcoming
French Guiana 2-1.

executive committee were also comfortably approved by
Congress, including an obligation for national referees
committees to come under the jurisdiction of their national
associations and a change in the statutes bringing FIFA fully
in line with the World Anti-Doping Code.
Following yesterday's vote, FIFA can now launch its own ap-
peals to CAS over doping-related decisions made by national asso-
ciations or confederations.
The Task Force set up two years ago to examine various
aspects of the sport made its final report to Congress with its
recommendations on agents, betting and transfer regulations
expected to be approved by the executive committee at its No-
vember meeting in Durban, South Africa.

In loving memory of our

Gay aiming to become

next U.S. sprint champion

By Larry Fine

NEW YORK, (Reuters) -
Tyson Gay is eager to assert
himself as the next great
American sprint champion
and hopes to use today's
Reebok Grand Prix 100
metres to prove a point.
Gay ran a wind-aided 9.79
seconds two weeks ago in Ne-
vada and wants to fill the gap
left by Justin Gatlin, who faces
an arbitration hearing on doping
"It's my job to try to carry
the U.S. and try to get the name
back and get rid of the cloud
over the sport," Gay, 24, told

Ranked number one in the
world at 200m and number two
at 100m last year. Gay became
the fastest 100m/200m combi-
nation sprinter ever, according
to IAAF scoring tables.
"I have no records under
my name. I don't have any
medals either," he said.
"What separates a good
sprinter from a great sprinter is
being able to run several events,
and that's what I like to do.
"I still think I have some
technical issues to work on --
my reaction time off the blocks
and staying relaxed through the
whole 100 meter race."
Saturday at Icahn Stadium,

it was a good day for .the team overall. I'm happy
with my innings and pleased to get a double hundred.
"I really worked hard today, I owed it to the team. It was
long overdue to get a double. It is a very nice venue as well so
the atmosphere was right for that kind of an innings. I enjoyed
batting out there today."
Morton, who also got 103 against Somerset in the opening
tour match at Taunton last month, said he tried to make good
use of the good batting conditions at the north-east England
"Sometimes there is a bit of tennis bounce but it is rela-
tively alright. It is a good track for batting and I tried to make
use of that but you still had to maintain focus and concentra-
tion," the 28-year old explained.
"I was just playing what I saw really. At times I tend to
hit the ball too hard but as the innings developed I let my
timing take over."

Dettori's Epsom Derby triumph canes bookies

By Dave Thompson

EPSOM, England, (Reuters)
- Frankie Dettori's long over-
due Epsom Derby win on Au-
thorized yesterday caned
bookmakers for millions.
William Hill spokesman
Graham Sharpe reckoned it was
the industry's worst day finan-
cially since Dettori rode all
seven winners in a day at As-

cot in September 1996.
That record-breaking feat
which became known as the
Magnificent Seven cost the
bookies around 40 million
pounds ($79 million).
Sharpe said: "Such was the
expectation on Frankie this year
that around 80 percent of the
entire bets staked on the race
were on him.
"The good news for book-

ies was the short price of Au-
thorized (sent off the 5-4
favourite), which effectively
more than doubled the pound
in most punters' pockets but
means that it could have been
a lot worse for the betting

Scotland Yard claim Woolmer
died of natural causes
SCOTLAND Yard detectives have told Jamaican police that
Bob Woolmer, the former Pakistan coach, was not mur-
dered, according to a report in the UK's Daily Mail.
Police have been treating the case as murder since shortly after
Woolmer's body was discovered in a Kingston hotel on March 18.
But the change of tack has come after an investigation by a UK Home
Office pathologist who flew to Jamaica to help.
It is claimed the authorities will announce Woolmer died of
a heart failure caused by chronic ill health and possibly diabe-
tes at a press conference next week.
However, Karl Angell, the Jamaica police's director of com-
munications, told The Gleaner he did not know of any planned
news conference for this week.
"Mr Woolmer was not a well man," a source close to the
inquiry told the Daily Mail. "It is now accepted that he died of
natural causes."
The BBC sports editor Mihir Bose said that Woolmer's
widow has heard nothing about her husband dying of natu-
ral causes. (Cricinfo)

Copenhagen chaos mars

night of Euro action.

By Mike Collett

LONDON, (Reuters) A
thrilling Scandinavian derby
between Denmark and Swe-
den was abandoned a minute
before full-time yesterday af-
ter a fan attacked referee
Herbert Fandel who immedi-
ately blew his whistle and
walked off.
Denmark had fought back
from 0-3 down to level their
Euro 2008 Group F qualifier at
3-3 when Denmark's Christian
Poulsen was shown the red card
just before the end for striking
Markus Rosenberg.
Fandel awarded Sweden a
penalty but before the kick was
taken, a fan lunged at the Ger-
man who officiated at last
week's Champions League final
between AC Milan and
Liverpool and he abandoned
the match.
UEFA's Control and Dis-
ciplinary committee will now
decide whether the result
should stand and what puni-
tive action should be taken.
While Denmark and Sweden
shared six goals, Germany
cracked six of their own with-
out reply against San Marino in
Nuremberg to pull two points
clear of the Czech Republic at
the top of Group D.
Germany set a European
Championship record when
they won 13-0 at San Marino

In Group A, there were
important wins for Poland,

cupy the top three positions

fourth place and Belgium's

Poland came from behind to
beat Azerbaijan 3-1 with goals
by Euzebiusz Smolarek (63) and
Jacek Krzynowek (66, 90) to
record their sixth win from eight
matches and stay five points
clear at the top.
Portugal won 2-1 in Brus-
sels with a second-half goal
from Helder Postiga securing the
Manchester United's new
signing Nani put the visitors
in front against the run of
play in the 43rd minute and
while Belgium equalised in
the 54th with a Marouane
Felliani strike, Postiga rifled
home the winner nine min-
utes later.
Serbia won 2-0 in Finland in
another Group A match to move
on to 14 points to keep their
chances alive.

UEFA to decide on Denmark-

Sweden abandonment

By Martin Burlund

COPENHAGEN. (Reuters) Denmark rallied from 3-0
down to draw 3-3 with Sweden in a Euro 2008 qualifier
yesterday which was abandoned in the 89th minute when
a fan attacked referee Herbert Fandel after he awarded
the visitors a penalty.
The result of the Group F tie will not be confirmed until
an investigation by UEFA's disciplinary committee following
receipt of the reports from its delegate and the referee. Euro-
pean soccer's governing body said on its Web site
Local media prematurely announced Sweden had been
awarded a 3-0 win but the outcome cannot be decided until the
disciplinary committee have met
The Danish Football Association (DBU) said it would not
protest if UEFA awarded Sweden victory.
"This is a serious stain on the reputation of Danish
football. We have had a low fence (around the stadium)
out of respect for the crowd and this is the risk we've
taken," DBU spokesman Lars Behrendt told Reuters.
He added that the fan was in police custody and would be

The fracas began when Dane Christian Poulsen was sent
off for striking Markus Rosenberg in the penalty area in front
of a capacity\ crowd of 42,083 at the Parken stadium.
Fandel awarded a penalty for Sweden but before it could
be taken the fan rushed on to the pitch and attacked the Ger-
man referee, who also handled last week's Champions League
final between AC Milan and Liverpool.
Several Danish players stepped in between the attacker and
Fandel, who immediately blew the whistle and walked off the
At least two more supporters forced their way on to the
pitch afier the incident.
Sweden went in front after seven minutes when striker

home a powerful free kick from long range.
Elmander grabbed Sweden's third after 26 minutes,

Denmark, though, staged a fighting comeback with goals
from Daniel Agger (34 minutes), Jon Dahl Tomasson (62) and
Leon Andreasen (75).
"This was supposed to be a soccer party," said Danish goal-
keeper Thomas Sorensen. "But then these two ill tempered in-
cidents happened and made it a real anti-climax."
Midfielder Poulsen said he regretted the damage his assault
on Rosenberg had caused.
"My mind just went click and I hit him," he said. "I want
to apologise to my team mates and to the spectators.
"It's the most stupid thing I've ever done. It happened
at a time when we had pulled back Sweden's lead. I can't
explain it."
DBU general secretary and UEFA disciplinary committee
member Jim Hansen said he thought victory would be awarded
to Sweden.

there is no doubt we will be judged the losers," he told Danish

Flintoff could play again
this season after operation
LONDON, (Reuters) England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff
could play again this season after an exploratory opera-
tion on his injured left
Ankle on Friday.
A statement from the En-
gland and Wales Cricket
Board said early signs indi-
cated the operation had been
"Andrew will require a
programme of strengthening
... before he can start to return
to training and bowling. It is
anticipated that he will aim to
return to playing cricket be-
ANDREW FUNTOFF fore the end of the summer,"
the statement said.
Flintoff, 29, who has undergone surgery on the ankle
in 2005 and 2006, missed the first two tests in the current
four-match series against West Indies after feeling pain
in his foot while bowling.

England set for unchanged

third Test squad
ENGLAND are expected to keep faith with the players that
beat West Indies at Headingley when they name their squad
for this week's third Test today.
All-rounder Andrew Flintoff has been ruled out of the rest of
the series after undergoing ankle surgery.
Paceman Matthew Hoggard looks set to miss out after suffer-
ing a setback in his recovery from a thigh problem.
But batsman Ian Bell, who struggled with a stiff back in Leeds,
should be fine to keep his place in the side.
And swing bowler Ryan Sidebottom will hope to build on his
match haul of 8-86 in his first Test for six years, which helped En-
gland claim victory b,an innings at Headingley,
Chairman of selectors David Graveney believes the
panel's task has been made straightforward by the absence
of key men.
"I feel for all the injured players because it is never easy for
them, but the current situation means we don't have as many deci-
sions to make." he said.
"As selectors we would prefer to have as many people as pos-
-sible in contention, but the injuries we have atthe moment are giv-
.ing other people a chance to stake their claims."
Probable England squad: Vaughan (capt), Cook, Strauss,
Pietersen. Collingwood. Bell. Prior (wkt), Plunkett, Harmison,
Sidebottom, Panesar. Anderson. (BBC Sport)

the crease for over two-and-a-

striking five fours in his 47
while Joseph batted for two
hours and faced 98 balls for his

Morton was dismissed
shortly after reaching his double
century, lbw to 22-year old me-
dium pacer Simon Butler.
He was one of two wickets

At the close, Darren

Morton hoping

double century ends

run of poor form
DURHAM CITY, England, (CMC) Windles batsman Rmako
Morton hopes his double century against the MCC XI yester-
day ends his run of poor form in Tests, as the third match of
the four-Test series approaches next week.
The right-handed Morton slammed a brilliant 201 from 246 de-
liveries with 27 fours and five sixes to lift West Indies to 340 for
four in response to the MCC XI's 260 all out on the second day of
the three-day tour match at the Racecourse Ground.
"I got a hundred before the first Test and I didn't get much
since so hopefully this double century will do the job for me when
we get to Manchester." said Morton who has scored just 44 runs
in three Test innings on the tour to date.
"The main objective was to get past the first innings
score of 260 scored by the MCC Xl. I was able to
contribute to that and we did overhaul their 260 total and

Guyana U-23's lose 2-1 in

muddy affair with Suriname

(From Allan La Rose in
Paramaribo in association
with Lens Craft Opticals
and Oasis Water)
A dubious penalty
kick awarded 12 minutes
from full time enabled host,
Suriname to earn a come
from behind 2-1 win over
Guyana in the opening rix-
ture of the 7th International
Parbo Bier Cup which
kicked-off amid persistent
showers at the Andre
Kamperveen Stadium on Fri-
day night last..
Throughout the first seg-
ment of the contest it
rained,adding to the sodden
condition of the field due to
consistent rains over the last
two weeks in the former Dutch
Colony making the pitch ideal
for sliding tackles and long air-
bound passes.
Guyana took the lead as
early as the 5th minute of play

when forward Edison Gomes
booted home from close range a
Shevane Seaforth left side cross.
The Gold shirts; should have
stretched the lead in the 23rd
minute, but T&T-based Profes-
sional Dwight Peters was denied
by the advancing Dutch custo-
dian Ronley Ravenberg in a'one-
on-one' play inside the box.

EDISON GOES action acain toniaht

Eight minutes later it was
the Guyanese keeper Andrew

Durant who was called upon to
foil the 'one-on-one' attempt of
the Dutch forward Nahis
Vinisie. By now the Surinamese
were in control of the extreme

heavy conditions that prevailed.
The homesters drew level
eleven minutes from the half
when central defender Devon
Dummet inadvertently de-
flected an attempted cross.
from Emilio Limon that gave
the T&T-based Professional
Durant no chance.
On the resumption the
rains ceased and so did the cre-
ativity and imagination of the
Guyanese as the homeside urged
on by the several hundred fans
who braved the rains pressured
their opponents defence which
was ably protected by the bril-
liance of Durant.
Both coaches then intro-
. duced fresh legs in search of
the winner, but it was

Q. A close friend of mine has got a habit of asking me to lend her money. The first
time, she was in a tight spot and I bent over backwards to help her. She didn't pay me back
and I didn't ask about the money, because I knew she still had other outstanding debts.
Then she asked to borrow more money to help her out with a business venture and she prom-
ised to pay me back. Well, she hasn't repaid me. and she has been on holiday in the Caribbean
twice since.
I don't want to lose her friendship, but I need to find a way to tell her that I don't like the
way she treats me. I'm not at all rich, but I help my friends when I think they genuinely need it.
What can I do'?
Forgive me, but she doesn't sound like much of a friend. She finds money for holidays and I'm
sure she pays her rent and her phone and grocery bills, has nights out, and so on, right? Why is it
that she can find the money to pay her way and enjoy herself but can't pay you back? It doesn't
sound as if your financial security is on her mind. (Marcia Levy, Trinidad)
A. It's bad manners and bad business to borrow and not repay. And it's certainly not the way
to maintain a close friendship.
I can see why she doesn't want to lose you as a friend, but I'm unclear as to what she is doing
for you. I urge you to give this some thought.
To save your friendship and your peace of mind, you need to ask for your money back.
Be firm and clear. Her financial problems are hers to manage and deal with, not yours.
Don't forget, it's not the first time this has happened. It's part of her consistent behavior.
You bailing her out will only ensure that you both have financial problems.
As always, clear communication is the key to most relationship glitches. Agreements be-
tween friends should be respected as though they were bank loans. In the future, if you lend
money to friends again, be clear about exactly when and how the loan needs to be repaid.
I borrowed money once from my best friend. She couldn't have been more gracious about it, as
well as businesslike. She asked me to write her a note stating the terms of the loan. 'That way, we
won't have any misunderstandings and our friendship will remain intact,' she said. At first. I was a
bit put off by this. As time went on, though, I saw the wisdom in it.
You could have saved yourself a lot of angst by asking your friend to write you a note. It
needn't be stiff and full of legal spiel to be binding. It might sound like this: "Dear So-
and-So, Thank you for lending me $500. I will begin paying you back $500 a month, on the
first of the month, starting in September 2007. There is something about putting intentions
and commitments between friends into writing that protects our own self-respect as well as
our friends". Otherwise, the money becomes the elephant in the living room that nobody
wants to talk about.

A. Are \ou sure this woman is really a good friend?
Her behavior sounds a bit brutal. In her jokey way she is constantly confronting you with
\what she sees as your own inadequacies and naturally you are frightened to confront her in return.
You have three options.
First, next time she says something rude to you ask her why she is always on your
case. If she says you are being over-sensitive tell her no, you are just being sensitive. Be
firm about this. She may have slipped into a routine with you and doesn't even know she's
doing it.
Secondly. you could try and ignore her and spend as little time with her as possible. Be a bit
elusive and then if she says anything about it, you can tell her she's being over-sensitive.
Thirdly, make sure you never say or do anything that she can construe as moaning or grumpy
behavior and then pretend not to notice when she's being patronizing. Laugh it off. I suspect that
your problem is the inevitable result of living so closely together.
Make the effort to see your own friends outside of the house more.

Shameless I

My live-in boyfriend left to
be with another woman.
He's back, but he wants to
continue to be around "their"
friends in an online game we
both played.
I find this disturbing as he
says he had no intention of
cheating, and it all happened so
fast he can't say why he did it.
I do not want to lose him,

but I can't see this as healthy,
for our "struggling to rebuild"
relationship. I am working on
making changes in myself so he
will not want to go outside the
relationship again.
I notice the more I try to
change, the more he expects me
to change. He has not made one
change for me other than not
being in direct contact with this

He did say once I regained
trust he would like to be friends
with her as she has shown him
how to make new friends. He
wants to stay in the game, but
claims he isn't planning on
letting it escalate again.
We've been to a counselor
twice and are trying to work
through this. After we went

Crocodile Tears

After a three year affair with a married man should the "other woman," who is also mar-
ried, tell the unsuspecting wife?
The other woman is angry that promises for the future were not kept by her lover, and now
feels sorry for the unsuspecting wife.
She has been lied to and could be again. Also, should the other woman apologize to the unsus-
pecting wife after the affair is over?


Twyla, for three years you weren't sorry for the wife, and you still aren't.
You are sorry for yourself, and you are mad. There is no honor among thieves or liars. There
was no reason for you to give weight to a cheater's words, just as there was no reason for the
cheater to give weight to your virtue. Neither of you is entitled to promises kept.
Human behavior is full of mysteries. One of them is why a person will watch another

[PART 1]

By Terence Roberts
SOMETIMES it is impos-
sible to walk by Camp
Street's famous Plaza Cin-
ema without crossing the de-
serted dusty urine-odoured
space beneath its marquee,
approach the closed Irafispar-
ent grid-iron doors, and gaze
with a feeling of sad reflec-
tion up the dusty steps that
once took us up into un-
known stories, places, emo-
tions, after the screen parted
between the stretched bows of
two classical archers.
Gazing between the dia-
mond spaces of the expanded
metal door, I see the whole cin-
ema come alive again. The chat-
ter and laughter of the crowds
standing beneath the marquee
between the rows of chained bi-
cycles, the parked scooters and
motorcycles, the aroma of vari-
ous discreet perfumes, the po-
mades, the glamorous fashions.
the snap of handbags. the tap of
heels, the shuffle of elderly feet.,
or the rap of those younger en-
ergetic ones. late-comers or us.
the boys of the Plaza side who
limed, worked and took care of
the cinema, running up those
stairs to the spacious lobby
whose walls were decorated
with unforgettable colour post-
ers. now precious expensive col-
lectors items of films like "'The
Graduate". "'A Man and A
Woman". "Walk on the Wild
Side". "'Hud". "'This Sporting
Life". etc. and the glossv black

and white and technicolor lobby

selection of scenes from coming
attractions that as exaggerated
as it may sound. made our lives
worth living.
Unless we really think
about what the cinema means
-and does for ius ve nmar-never
realize its importance to our
lives in the past. and its detri-
mental absence in the present.
As everyone knows, the decline
of the cinema began with the in-
troduction of TV in the USA in
the 1940s; this decline was not
intended at-all, since TV was
seen as an extension of the ra-
dio broadcasting, news and jour-
nalism system. not as a substi-
tute for cinemas or cinema-go-
As Thomas Schatz. one of
the leading experts and pro-
fessors on the history of cin-
ema declared in his detailed
factual study of 1940s Holly-
wood: "Boom and Bust":
"Hollywood tried to ensure
that television would never be
strictly defined as a domestic
medium aimed at individual
homes...but that it would be
equally visible as an exten-
sion of the studio system, per-
haps even as a public medium
based in movie theaters."
The decline of cinema by
TV was the result of calculated
business opportunities being of-
fered by progressing communi-
cation technology, rather than
\\ ith the ongoing social and hou-
man benefits the convention ol,
cinema offers.

A whole new generation
of TV. DVD home viewers
would emerge. (especially in
vulnerable nations like
Guyana) who were condi-
tioned to believe that a TV
screen was the same as hav-

ing our own movie screen at
home. This illusion would

tional, social, and private

dispute is to be heard is provided for in regulation 81. It reads as follows.
"All disputes by way of opposition to the issue of any license and all disputes as to what land is
or not lawfully occupied or has not been lawfully located or any other disputes arising under these
Regulations shall be decided by the Commissioner or any officer appointed by him or the mines of-
ficer of the mining district in which the dispute arises."
According to the Chancellor, "This regulation expressly empowers the Commissioner of
Geology and Mines to hear a dispute himself. However, in the event that he decides not to do
so, the regulation empowers him to appoint any officer, or alternatively, the mining officer of
the district in which the dispute arose, to hear and determine it. In the present case the com-
missioner appointed Ms Reihl and the question which arose during the hearing of the appeal
was whether she is an officer within the meaning of the Regulations.
"This brings me to the definition provision (regulation 2) and to the meaning of the expression
"officer" as defined therein.
"It states that 'officer' means and includes every district commissioner, assistant district
commissioner, mines officer, officer of the Geology & Mines Commission, customs officer, all
ranks of the police force, every other public officer or justice of the peace specifically appointed
by the Minister to act under these Regulations and, when specifically referred to in any par-
ticular regulation, rural constables."
"As a magistrate, Ms Reihl is a public officer in that she is under the Constitution the holder of an
office of emolument in the public service of Guyana; and by virtue of that office she is, under section
13 of the Summary Jurisdiction Magistrates Act, a justice of the peace. But in order to comply with
the definition of "officer" in regulation 2 she must in either capacity be "specifically appointed by the
minister to act under these Regulations", and there is no evidence that she was so appointed.
"But the lack of evidence on this issue can be of little moment in the present case as her appoint-
ment by the Minister was never a live issue before the judge who heard the motion. Aside from whether
she had been appointed by the Minister, the appellant's only other contention (as I have indicated)
was that, her appointment to hear disputes under;the Regulation had not been made by the Judicial
Service Commission, her hearing of the dispute was a nullity and therefore her final order ineffective.
"In amplification of this contention counsel for the appellant argues that, as Regulation 81 has
created either a court or tribunal, then under the constitution the only authority that is empowered to
appoint persons to prelside over such a body is the Judicial Service Commission that has been created,
under article, 134, 198 and 199."
Concluding his judgment, the Chancellor added,' "Therefore having failed to establish any*
link between the appointment of Ms Reihl and a breach of his (appellant) right to a fair trial.
by an independent tribunal I hold that not only the claim but also the procedure used is mis.
conceived and the appeal must be dismissed with costs to the respondents to be taxed."

GUMhe Dentist Advises


OF all eight specialist fields
in dentistry, more dentists
pursue the post graduate
course in periodontics than
any other.
It is likely than a primary
reason has to do with the fact
that gum disease is a major
problem that people face. After,
previously giving an overview of
gum disease I would continue
with the four categories of pe-
riodontal (gum) disease.
Gingivitis represents the
characteristic host response to
bacterial plaque. It is the most
common form of periodontal
disease and may affect over 90
per cent of any population.
The lesion is usually con-
fined to the gum margin and is
observed locally or generally.
Gingivitis may persist for years
without further progressing into
the supporting periodonlal
structures. However, in animal
models gingivitis always pre-
cedes periodontitis and hence.
may b6 considered a prerequi-
site for disease initiation. Symp-
toms include red, shine, swollen
,and often painful gums, espe-
cially around the neck area of the
tooth affected.
Adult periodontitis is the

most prevalent form of peri-
odontitis. It is usually a chronic
disease emerging from its pre-
cursor, namely gingivitis, as a
result of long-standing plaque
accumulation. Since not all gin-
givitis appears to progress to
periodontitis, specific bacteria
have been postulated to account
for the great variation disease
progression in various individu-
The periodontal lesion is
characterized by loss of con-
nective tissue fiber attach-
ment to the root surface. The
progression of attachment
loss was, for a few years, con-
sidered to occur in episodes of
activity bursts. However, this
concept has not been unani-
mously accepted, and the
theory of this mode of pro-
gression may be. explained on
the basis of measurement er-

The life and work of Agustus

'Bill Rogers

by Petamber Persaud

F OR more than five decades, from the
late 1900s to the early 1970s, he made
significant contributions to the literary
heritage and cultural patrimony of
Guyana, capturing, preserving and broadcasting
the nuances and the mores of a people especially
through scores of songs he composed and
He was a skilful entertainer and impresario, publicity and en-
tertainment director, publisher, educator, and High Priest of Shanto.
He was a master at portraying the culinary art and domestic folly
as in "BG Bhagee", he was adept at conveying man's appetite fo.
freeness like in "Boarding Policemen" and "Fifteen Cents Sweet-
heart" and for intrigue and sexy in "Moving Black Sage Tree",
"Baldplated Emily" and "My Daughter Surprised Me".
Bill Rogers was born to entertain. As early as age five, he forced


himself onto stage. That incident was a concert coordinated by his
sisters, Beatrice and Angela, a programme into which through plead-
ing and tears he thrust himself. And he delivered; wooing his way
into the heart of the audience.
But it took him another four years to find his bearing and di-
rection, breaking into the entertainment world in his early teen. At
age 13, he performed his own composition, "Mauby & Pancakes",
celebrating the culinary art; his bread-and-butter came from making
and selling of sweets. Then at 18, he started his own troupe
of entertainers, "Merrymakers". This band toured the country, per-
forming mainly for grass- root workers, easing their burden for a
In the 1920s, he invented the "bhagee beat" and the song,
"BG Bhagee" shot him into the limelight, a limelight which
he embraced with a passion, a limelight he shared with many
of his contemporaries including Sam Chase and Jack Mello.
It was the Vaudeville period in Guyana, an era that threw up
other artistes like Madame 0' Lindie, Rico Ricardo, Groller,
May Thomas, Fats Waller, and others.
As a pioneer in various aspects of show biz in Guyana, Bill

Rogers scored many firsts. He was the first local artiste to perform
over the fledging local radio station. VRY. That occasion was the
first time the "Weed Song" hit the airwaves: it was sensational -
the audience was bigger than any he had entertained so far. And his
fame spread to the region as his career gained momentum.
He was the first Guyanese winner in Trinidad Carnival and the
song was his runaway local hit, "Weed Song". As a promoter, he
was the first to put the traditional "Cumfa Dance" on stage and
the first Guyanese to attempt bringing Trinidad style carnival to
Guyana with a two-day tramping in Georgetown.
His fervour for entertainment in various media could not be con-
strained; soon he gravitated to the world stage. He was the first
Guyanese put on disc by RCA Victor in New York. He created
history by recording 34 original compositions in 1934 between No-
vember and December. He recorded for Parlophone (another first)
and Melodisc in England. and for Ridiffusion in Jamaica. He per-
formed at "confiari" in Surinam, Royal Festival Hall, London, and
the "Bandwagon Show" in Canada.
Bill Rogers was an improviser on stage, and he was also an
improviser in real life, adding colour and flavour to routine. He put
on the annual baby show, "Baby Guiana", pinpointing the "the baby
of the year", rewarding families
with food hampers, medals and
cash awards.
Going another step higher
in the timeline of life, he was
instrumental in setting up the
scholarship fairs fund in an ef-
fort to improve life of the less
fortunate. Part proceeds of the
annual scholarship fairs were
donated in books and tuitions
for as many as 25 children over
the period of 15 years.
For grownups, he formed the
"BG Shanto Union" in an effort
to bring about equable deals for
Although he had little formal
education, he acquired great re-
spect for books and history. This
led him to another aspect of his
varied endeavours which was book
production. He published his own work in "Shantos of Guiana",
and the work of others like "Laugh with Sam Chase: 50 radio". He
also produced books on natiC:;al and international issues including
"Guyana at Expo '67", and "l'r'ward Guyana" to commemorate
the Co-operative Repuiiric of 'luyana. February 23, 1970.
His final major involvement with the entertainment business in
Guyana was at Carifesta in 1972.
He was honouied with a Gold Meda in 1935 by the British
Government i MrJal of Service in 1976 by the Government of
Guyana and the Wordsworth McAndrew award, New York.
Agustus "Bill Rogers" Hinds was born in September 1906
in Charlestown, Georgetown, British Guiana. His father,
James, was a stevedore and his mother, Mary, was a house-
wife. He was the second of six siblings. He died in November
1984, leaving behind a living legacy in his son Roger Hinds
(Young Bill Rogers') who is also an entertainer and who is
making efforts to ensure the life and work of his father is not
forgotten mainly through the preparation of a biography of
his father, "Bill Rogers".

and disliked school, espe-

Today, Misir is an English
Professor at Hudson Valley
Community College and a
Hindu priest at a Schenectady
Misir said he grew up in a
small village, and had to travel
to Georgetown to attend high
school. He woke up at 4:00
a.m., caught a train at 5:30, then
a ferry, and began school at 8:30
a.m., he explained. "I never
missed the train, but I neglected
a lot of my studies by playing
cricket quite a bit," he said.
He thought he would repre-
sent Guyana and play for the
West Indies some day. "When
you are young, you have those
dreams, but it never came to
pass," he said.
Guyana is physically lo-
cated in South America, but has
more of a Caribbean flavor..

Ethnically, the population is
mostly Indian and African. 35

The electoral system was
changed to proportional repre-
sentation, and the government
became like a dictatorship for
the next 28 years, according to
The political situation led
to a large exodus to England,
Canada and the United States,
and Misir's brother urged him
to come to the U.S. to attend
college, he said.
Misir explained that during
this period he also started to ap-
preciate poetry. He was in-
spired by a poem called "Where
the Mind is Without Fear,"
written by Indian poet,
Rabindranath Tagore.
Misir can still remember
the poem he saw on the walls
of Guyana's Parliament
building years later. He re-
cited, "Where the mind is
without fear and the head is
held high; where knowledge
is free; where the world has
not been broken up by nar-
row domestic wall ..." The
message he received was that

we should try to understand
each other to eliminate con-
flict, he explained.
Misir did come to the
United States and eventually at-
tended the College of Saint
Rose. He had acquired a lo\c
of literature. but still did not like
writing very much, he said.
While attending St. Rose. he
had a teacher named Sister

As we were talking, a stu-

fused about the day that a
writing assignment was due,
maybe because it was the first
day back after vacation.
Misir told her that there was
no class that day, gently, with
a smile.
"I try to push them to use
their own experience or use an
observation to personalize their
writing," said Misir. He further
explained, "I force them to use

According to Candice

she has newfound confidence in
writing because of taking his
class. She said that when he
assigns an essay, he gives many
choices in topic, adequate time
to write, and discusses them in
class. She added that he usually
manages to find a lesson about
life within the writing as well.
Ferritto also remembered Pro-
fessor Misir encouraged her to tell
the class about the death of her
husband. She felt it was difficult.
but was able to learn about herself
and write more easily.

It was shortly after Misir's
mother's death that his father
came to the U.S.. and Misir re-
alized that he wanted to take on
Hinduism in a serious wav.
He told his father that he
wished he had started earlier.
His father responded by saying.
"Jai. nothing is before its time:
the time is right now." accord-
ing to Misir.
Today Misir is the priest
in charge of the Schenectady
Hindu Temple. The church
has a large number of
Guyanese members who have
been enticed to relocate by
Mayor Al Jurczynski, accord-
ing to an article in Metroland
by Nancy Guerin.
The temple is in a building
that was once a Catholic church.
Misir performs marriage cer-
emonies, counsels members, and
trains others in Hindu ritual.
He is also a member of an
inter-faith Board at the College

of St. Rose. He said. "1 feel we

"What you see is what you get. Nothing is rehearsed about me. From the very be-
ginning, I entered this competition with high-hopes and an unswerving determine
tion to make this dream a reality," Riyo Mori, Miss Universe 2007
LAST Monday, 20-year-old Japanese ballet dancer Riyo Mori was crowned Miss
Universe. 48 years after her country first won the world's most glamorous beauty pag-
She was raised with her younger brother in a small town called Shizuoka at the base .
of Mt. Fuji.
Dressed in a black, red and purple Japanese-style gown. Mori was crowned with a
diamond-and-pearl-studded headpiece valued at US$250,000. She will spend a year in a
luxury apartment in New York and travel the world championing various humanitarian
causes, including the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The first Miss Univero winner from Japan was Akiko Kojima in 1959. Mori is the
eighth Asian women to win the. pageant, the most recent being Lara Dutta of India who
was Miss Universe 2000.
We share her Miss Universe interview.
What are your interests and what do you enjoy doing
the most?
Definitely dancing! I ha.e been dancing since I was 4 years old. I still have
my first pair of ballet shoes ihat I keep as a memory of my many years and
passion for dancing. I am a %ery curious person and I love traveling th6 world.
especially seeing musicals and' ,iing museums. Discovering different cultures
and encountering new people are a constant source of inspiration for me and some-
thing I try to apply to my own dancing and teaching back in Japan.
What is your career ambition?
To open my own dance school in Tokyo! My mother runs a successful dance school
outside of 'fokyo and we plan to expand my family's love for the performing arts by
opening an international dance school in Tokyo, the capital of Japan and a crossroads for
many cultures. My plan is to hire teachers who speak a number of languages so that I
can host students from around the world. Opening my own school will allow me to livec
and teach my passion for dancing while being an independent businesswoman.

was like.
I was born and raised with my younger brother in a small town called Shizuoka I
ait the base of Mt. Fuji. Shizuoka enjoys a very mild climate and is also near the
sea. As nuclear families have become the norm in Japanese society, I feel very for-
tunate to have been raised by both my parents and grandparents under the same
roof. I grew up in a very supportive and loving family, always surrounded by many
energetic people since part of my house served as my mother's dance school. Inter-
estingly enough, my mother entered a local beauty pageant when she was in her
twenties and, although I didn't pay much attention to it at the time, my maternal
grandmother told me when I was a child that she wanted me to become Miss Japan
before I turn 20.

mnce sang, "all ah we is one
family" .
Optimists in the Caribbean
nay well agree with these
vords, but the reality is that if
,ou were to describe Caribbean
states as a family, you would
lave to call it a complex unit -
md one in which there is much
ibling rivalry. Caribbean
loggers Geoffrey Philp (Jamai-
an writer), Guyana Media
'ritic aka Living Guyana and
'rancis Wade (Jamaican manage-
nent consultant) recently shared
heir personal views about this
complex region with me.

What it means to be
"Caribbean means being a part
>f one of the most interesting,
hough unintended, social experi-
nents in the world", says Geoffrey
'hilp who lives in Miami. "Within
his archipelago, we have people
rom all over the planet meeting and
trying to live together without re-
oriing to genocide...
"In Miami, we all tend to try
o get along because we are in a
minority, so we have to get
long. That said, whenever the
ight bruk out, they usually tend
o be along the lines of stereo-
ypes, which are really ways for
tot thinking for yourself. And
ome people don't want to think
or themselves."
Living Guyana describes the
-aribbean as "a unique collec-
ion of people strung together by
i common history and increas-
ngly and perhaps irreversibly
influenced by Americana.
"It's a usually change-resis-
ant conglomeration in desperate
iced of real political and eco-
minic unification. One troubling
feature of Caribbean life is that
despite the obvious need for real
politicall and economic fusion.
here is a significant degree of re-
islanee to this in some quar-
While he admits that there is
I common fuln-loving thread
vhich binds Caribbean cultural

and social life, he says there are
also subtle differences that de-
fine each particular island such
as lingo, food and self-image.
"But at the very core," he says,
"we are a singular people bound
by a common and undeniable
Yet not all people auto-
matically buy in to the con-
cept of "one Caribbean". For
Francis Wade to emotionally
connect to this notion of "one
Caribbean", it took the per-
suasion of a Trini friend that
"we were all one Caribbean
people", and a vacation to
Trinidad, which felt familiar
to him: "It looked like Ja-
maica; it felt like Jamaica."
There are many answers to
this question of Caribbean iden-
tity, as Caribbean Free Radio,
and the BBC have discovered.
For some, national identity
brings its own challenges. To
Living Guyana, being Guyanese
means "'regrettably, inherent dis-
crimination both internally and
externally. It means being per-
ceived as being disadvantaged
but it simultaneously means
having to be diligent and com-
mitted to perseverance in order
to succeed. It means being resil-
ient and more open to Caribbean
integration. It means being natu-
rally hospitable and warm. It
means being proud."

West Indian versus
Many people use the terms
"West Indian" and "Caribbean"
interchangeably. Yet the question
still remains, is there a distinc-
tion between the terms "West
Indian" and "Caribbean"?
I Living Guyana thinks it's
"mere semantics", while Wade
uses the terms interchange-
ably: "Logically I know that
Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Re-
public, Guadeloupe, and
Martinique are Caribbean,"
he says. "Caribbean primarily
means English-speaking, Car-
ibbean Basin country. but I in-
clude Bahamas and Belize in





Karel McIntosh of Global Voices talks to three

Caribbean bloggers, including, Guyana Media Critic,

about what it means to be Caribbean.

there although they are not
really a part of the Caribbean
Philp, on the other hand, has
a clear distinction about the
* "West Indies refers to the
former colonies of England -
mostly English speaking. 'Car-
ibbean' refers to the whole
gumbo: English, French, Span-
ish, patwa, what-have-you
speaking archipelago of is-
lands, and the coastal regions of
South and Central Americas.
You could even extend the
definition to places in North
America such as the recently
colonized Miami and the older
cities in Louisiana and the Caro-
linas or Plantation America."

Caribbean Unity
In her Global Voices post
Bombastic?. Janine Mendes-
Franco writes. "The Caribbean,
as a region, manages to operate
quite well when it comes to
endeavours like The University
of the West Indies and West
Indies Cricket (recent events
concerning the latter notwith-
Francis Wade attempted to
provide an explanation about Ja-
maican attitudes:
"We don't even think about

fighting in Jamaica. We just want
to do our own thing. We like to
be together when it works, and
we like to be apart when we're
apart. The Federation fell apart
primarily because the DLP saw
that opposing it was a way to
win the elections. If they had
been more enlightened they
would not have pushed so hard
for a referendum then, and his-
tory would have gone .hilierentl I
"Now, because of the Carib-
bean Single Market and
Economy (CSME) more Jamai-
cans are identifying with being
Caribbean. Luckily, many Carib-
bean businesses operate across
borders. It's about when will it
become easier to do business.
when will barriers be moved? It's
a question of when. not if."
Although Philp thinks that
Caribbean people "don't want
them (Federation and CSME) to
work", he is quick to give an op-
timistic outlook on Caribbean
people's ability to work to-
"When we are united, we are
unstoppable." he explains enthu-
siastically. "Look at the work of
that generation that fought lor in-
dependence on a united front
across the national borders. They
fell apart once they gained inde-
pendence. but the unit\' was tre-

mendous and unparalleled.
It is a sad fact that humans
rarely get together unless it is to
fight a real enemy. We have no
'enemies" so we've decided to
kill ourselves."
There are those like Don
Mitchell from the Corruption
Free Anguilla blog who look for-
ward to becoming part of "an in-
tegral part of the independent
and sovereign nation known as
the West Indies". He describes
the West Indies as "a country\
that is coming into existence., It
does not yet have a flag or a na-
tional anthem".

Economic Rivalry
While Francis Wade recently
blogged about "some significant
announcements related to acqui-
sitions across the Caribbean re-
gion". Living Guyana thinks that
Caribbean people's gripe with
one another stem from "the
varying responses to political
and economic unification. and
the stereotyping of each other
vwithoul any initiative on the
part of CARICOM or indi\ dual
governments to redress this".

Coming Together
Despite Differences
Apart from some similari-

ties stemming fronm their
shared histories, a Trini is dif-
ferent to a Barbadian, who in
turn is different from a Jamai-
can," writes Francis Wade.
Defined by its complex char-
acteristics, the Caribbean
brand is one that is often used
by its states. 'et some see
the need to distance them-
selves from it \\hen it is at-
tacked. According to Barbados
Free Press, *'When you have
declared yourself to be a fam-
ily member, your brother's
reputation is yours."
Although Caribbean
people's differences can some-
times create division among
them, they also know how to
rally around each otiler and to
feel proud of each others'
Philp. Wade and Living
Guyana all agree that the Carib-
bean will benefit fo harnessing e
the strengths of its members.
In fact, Living G(;syan:i
prophesies that: "The govern-
ments of the Caribbean will
find themselves in a situation
where they are forced to for-
malize and institutionalize
Caribbean people, through
travel, work. business, trade.
sex, and relationships. are al-
ready charting the course."

CONSTRUCTION works on the "Bless the Children" home at Industry, East Coast Demerara, is progressing. The orphanage
is being built by US based Guyanese Reverend Surujnauth Surujpaul and his wife Ramdai. Their vision is to train young
men and women who have no place to call home to be useful citizens in the society. According to Surujpaul, his church
in Pennsylvania, USA, has a special collection to fund the building and maintenance of the project.

ON behalf of the Guyana
government, the Guyana
Honorary Consulate in Bar-
bados once again organized a
successful Picnic/Fun Day for
Guyanese nationals in the
Eastern Caribbean island
last Sunday.
The occasion was the 41st
anniversary of our Indepen-
dence date. But it wasn't only
a Guyanese thing. There were
Barbadian entertainers and
Bajans attended to further so-
cialize with Guyanese. Even
part of the awards given to four
Guyanese were made of a mix-
ture of Guyanese and Bajan
A highlight of the day was
the awarding of the four awards
to Guyanese who were sym-
bolic of the outstanding contri-
butions Guyanese are making to
help build up Barbados. These
were Colleen Wilson a
Calcutta Village-born welder
with the large Barbadian firm of
Williams Industries, Jairam
Tulsieram, a Parika-born small
farmer, Mona Aguilar, a
Mabaruma-born housekeeper
and Michael Captain, a First
Mate officer with Tall Ships, the
island's largest firm offering
cruises to tourists on sailing cata-

same village as President Jagdeo
and Chanderpaul!". he tells you
On hand to provide enter-
tainment with oldie goldies was
Guyanese-Barbadian organist
Lawrence Francis and the "Bar-
badian Ton Jones" Cliff Roberts.
The awards were made of
greenheart and a wood grown
throughout the region called
"Pride of India" ..also known
as Yellow Flamboyant in some
other islands and the Rusty
Copper Pod Tree in Guyana.
An Amerindian derived painted
motive on it showed figures
linking hands and indicating
friendship and co-operation.
This was the main thrust
of Consul Norman Faria's
remarks He referred to the
long standing ties among the
two countries including emi-
gration back and forth. He
urged more Barbadians to in-
vest in Guyana in ventures
such as livestock rearing and
food crops.
Consul Faria referred to
advances in almost every socio-
economic and political spheres
in Guyana, such as investor
Snfidence and the stable

Guyana dollar. "We must al-
ways highlight these successes
and opportunities to be grasped
rather than trying to tear down
the good reputation of our

IT is important to follow the recommended distances between
plants as well as between rows (plant spacings), when embark-
ing on crop cultivation.
This is because most recommendations (fertilizers, etc.) are based
on these spacings. Further, the recommended spacings allow for other
crop husbandry practices to be successfully implemented.

Importance of Spacing
Spacing usually affects the biological and operational factors of a farm. The height of the plant is
reduced at extremely high and low densities. Diameter growth is unaffected by spacing until competi-
tion begins. The period of fast. early diameter growth is longer at wider spacings.
Wide, spacing can also result in branch retention leading to knotty roots. For close planting. the
advantages can be faster production, depending on the soil and climate.
Spacing may also be affected by which species you select to regenerate. Depending on the crop
type and variety of crop to be planted, plant spacing becomes important. Relative shade tolerance and
the species growth pattern will affect the initial spacing. Additionally, spacing may be affected by the
equipment available for planting, maintenance, thinning and harvesting.
Spacing affects thinning schedules. Wide spacing provides little selection opportunity for remov-
ing low-quality trees. Close spacing: allows undesirable trees to be removed. The advantage of close
initial spacing is that larger volumes accumulate in the early years. Also, close spacing will mean faster
crown closure. This will reduce the need for weed control and may disrupt the life cycle of some
harmful insects.
A general rule for spacing is to plant closer on higher quality sites and further apart on less fertile
,ites. Tight spacing helps to control competing vegetation and fully utilize the site.

Advautages and disadvantages of wide spacings:

In idL spacing. planting costsare reduced and trees attain larger diameters and become marketable
.ioner. ,
Competition from other trees is reduced, seeds may be produced earlier and undergrowth

Chad' s wild ,...


C HAD may not seem like an obvious
tourist destination, with the spillover of
the Darfur conflict from Sudan and
regular clashes between rebels and
government soldiers.
But Chad's best-known and some would say only tourist
destination is growing in popularity with foreign visitors.
o Zakounma National Park. in the far south well away from the
troubles in the east. is becoming something of a Mecca for adven-
turous travellers.
Wildlife connoisseurs say it is one of the very best places in
Africa to view elephants and the fact that it is off the beaten track
only adds to the allure.
It is certainly not easy to get to: an 11 -hour drive along bumpy
dirt tracks may deter the faint-hearted, but the journey is worth it
in the end.
Zakoumna is practically virgin territory: it is not unusual to be
one of just two or three tourists in the entire park. with 3.000 sqI
kmin of truly wild territory all to oneself.
Luis Arranz. a Spaniard who has been running Zakoulia for six
years, admits it can be hard drawing in the crowds when media
coverage of Chad is dominated by violence.
"It's a big problem because there are lots of Europeans \\ho've
only read about war and Darfur spreading into Chad. so people
don't think of coming here for their holiday." he says.
"But recently people have started to talk about Zakoumna.
If' the situation stays calm, I think people will continue conn-
The real reason people come to Zakouima is for the elephants.
In the rainy season, when elephants begin to lei\c ie park Ito
a\oid the muddy terrain, it is possible to see irul\ ii',nssi\ herds -
sometliimes up to 1.000 elephants at a time.
Unfortuinatelv. like manxy things in Chad. there is ,i darker side
to Ihe picture.

poachers who attack on horsi- i^ came-back.
.p'., .ark employs 80 anti-poaching rangers to deal xwith the

Earlier this year, three of the park's guards were killed in a shoot-
out with poachers.
"It's a dangerous life but one we've accepted.," says Nicolai

.The ',,on for the recent upsurge in elephant killings is that
some .-\frican countries -Zimbabxwe. Botsx ana and Naimibia can

Chad enforces the ivory ban. but as long as an i\or\ trade ex-

TWO Guyanese firms report a rewarding experience at the
this year's four day Barbados Manufacturers Exibition
(BMEX) held last weekend.
"I brought a three quarters container of handicraft and I have
virtually sold everything. Things have improved this year," said
Sookdeo Sancharra, managing director of Amerindian Handy Craft
of Zorg Village, Essequibo. at the end of the four day exhibition.
It was the third time at the show for Sancharra whose finnrm makes
a variety of items including treated rattan furniture.
Also singing praises for their good fortune was Ganesh
Persaud, managing director Three Brothers Furniture Manu-
facturing located at Warapana on the Pomeroon River.
Persaud, who has worked out an arrangement with a Barbadian
agent to sell his line of rattan furniture, said he shipped in a con-
tainer full of stock for the BMEX show.
He reported that he gathered enough orders to ship a second
container immediately upon his return to Guyana. It was his first
visit to BMEX. He also exports to St.Lucia.
Depending on the quality of goods and management mar-
keting skills, Guyanese firms, especially in furniture and
handicraft areas, continue to do well at regional shows such
the Caribbean Gift and Craft Show and BMEX and the Home
Show in Barbados.

ARIES -- The faster you try to go today, the less ground you'll be able io
cover. The stars are urging you to enjoy where you are in life, and not to be
too focused on the future. So right now you need to slow down. Just relay\
already! Spend some time today enjoying the material rewards of your hald
work. Take your car for a pleasure drive, for instance, or plug in vour head-
phones and pop in a new CD. There are no pressing issues that \ou have to
deal with today.
TAURUS You love a good time as much as anyone else, but lately you'\'
been feeling more like a homebound hermit crab than a social butterfly. To-
day, feel free to gravitate toward a quieter, more solitary existence. This urec
for more privacy in your life is a healthy step toward gaining a deeper under
standing of what you truly need in order to make yourself happy and full
filled. It's okay to seek time by yourself, be less emotionally available to otlc,
people, and look inward.
GEMINI -- Authority figures may pop up unexpectedly today -- so be on the
lookout for a person who has control over what you do -- and make sure thiai
you don't get too familiar too soon. A friend is slowly but surely gaining powce
in your life, and you might have to get comfortable with that idea. Learn ho\\
to treat this person with the level of respect thai she or he deserves -- aflici
all. you would expect nothing less if your positions were reversed. Tr\ to hk
a model of dignity in every sense of the word.
CANCER -- Like a yo-yo, you will be rolling between extreme highs and c\
treme lows today. This back-and-forth motion will test the limits ol 'our t 1e
ibility and your patience. The good news is that you won't really have 1-,,
much problem dealing with these changes in elevation, no nllt:i iov,' a,...I
den or unexpected they are. The bad news is that you probably won't get a'.
much recognition as you deserve -- you just make it all look so easy!
LEO -- This is not a day to dillydally. You have a strong sense of \\ hal \
want, so stop wasting time. If you act on your feelings sooner rather tl.
later, you will attain your goal more quickly -- that makes sense, right Y'"(
hesitancy might be based on some concerns about another person's tieciing,.
but you needn't worry. The people in your life are standing beside youin. ren,
to cheer you on. So move forward today and start making lhinL's happen

group of people if you can -- being in a group will inspire vou and loss ,
bunch of surprises into the day -- and you will love it! You are game iloi |tM
about anything today, because your confidence is high and you arc cliii,'

fidence. Real changes are coming in one of your relationships -- it looks as
though someone is finally ready to take another step in the lighl direction.
Are you ready to take this step. too? Balance is important. so if someone
makes an effort, you need to make an equal effort. Demonstrate. your fair-
SCORPIO -- Listen to that voice of ambition in your head today when it toIIs
you that you need to stop thinking about how dissatisfied you are in your
current job and start thinking about what you can do to make things better. If
you need more education, then find out where you can get it today. If you
need more networking connections, then make an effort to get to know people
who can help you make them. You need to recognize that if you want to go
up that ladder, you have to start climbing.
SAGITTARIUS -- Prepare for a scatterbrained kind of day -- one of those
days when you get a silly tune stuck in your head, you have trouble concen-
trating, and you can't seem to recall names and other information. You might
just have to let these things go -- try not to get too frustrated with yourself.
Right now music and art hold special appeal for you, but there Will he a bit of
a disconnect between what your conscious mind can focus on and what youth
subconscious mind can handle.
CAPRICORN -- You don't suffer fools gladly -- so \,ir forbearance may be
tested today. It may seem as though you've been transported to a kindergar-
ten classroom -- everyone is whining and screaming about something or oilier.
and you will be the only competent adult in the room. Just let them argue
with one another about things that really don't matter. If you work around
these petty complainers, you'll be able to stay happy and calm throughout
the day.
AQUARIUS -- Even if you wake up full of aggressive energy. today is not ;i
day to mix things up. Rather, it's a day for you to just sit back and let other
people push things forward. Keep your head down and mind your own busi-
ness as much as possible. Stay out of conflicts, and keep to yourself as much
as you can. Even social engagements are to be avoided if possible, so re-
schedule that lunch for another day and ask for a rain check on that mi\m it
PISCES -- Are you just a little bit bored with your life right inow'.' If you aie
ready for a new adventure, then step up and take control of the unchallengin,=
situationn that you're currently in. Your leadership capabilities have never been
stronger. and it will be extremely easy to tap into the positive attitudes of
nearby people who can help you point your life in a different direction Just
by adding some fresh scenery to your day, you will gain all the e \cileniiil
you need.

The house had retired for the night before Rachel came
through again.
"We're going home, mother and me," she told us. "Anne's
turned everyone out, and she's alone there now. Mother
wanted to stay, but Anne is beside herself and hysterical. She
made them go. They were afraid she'd be worse if they in-
sisted on staying. She's told Mother she knows who's respon-
sible for Alan's death, but she wouldn't name anybody."
"You do think she means us? After all, it is possible that
:\lan may have had some bitter quarrel of his own that we
know nothing about," Michael suggested.
Rachel was more than dubious. "If it were only that, she'd
surely have let me in. She wouldn't have screamed at me to
go away," she pointed out. "I'll go over early in the morn-
ing, and see if she's changed her mind."
With that we had to be content for the moment.....Rachel
told uns later what happened the following morning.

She had got! up an hour after dawn and made her way
across, the fields to Anne's house. When she reached it she
had hesi:ated a little, reluctant to face the possibility of the
,ame sort of screaming repulse that she had suffered the pre-
vious day. However, it was useless simply to stand there
looking at the house: she plucked up courage and raised the
knocker. The sound of it echoed inside and she waited.
There was no result.
She tried the knocker again, more decisively. Still no one
Rachel became alarmed. She hammered the knocker vig-
,,rouslv and stood listening. Then slowly and apprehensively
,he lowered her hand from the knocker, and went over to the
house of the neighbour who had been with Anne the previ-
"Is day.
With one of the logs from the woodpile they pushed in a
, window. and then climbed inside. They found Anne upstairs
in her bedroom. hanging from a beam.....
To Rachel it was all unreal. She was dazed. The
neighbour took her by the arm to lead her out. As they were
leaving she noticed a piece of paper lying on the table. She
picked it up.
"This'll be for you. or maybe your parents," she said, put-
ring it into Rachel's hand.
Rachel looked at it dully. reading the inscription on the
"But it's not ....
"Oh, I .,ee yes, I'll give it to them," she said, and slipped
into the front of her dress the message that was neither ad-
dressed to herself, nor to her parents, but to the inspector.

About the Excerpt
Today's piece was chosen to help you see once again
how dialogue helps in writing: see how dialogue captures
the way a character formulates thoughts.
The chosen piece also lets you see that a happening, writ-
ten in simple terms, can bewvery effective indeed. Read the
extract again to see if you can feel what is to come even be-
fore it comes along.

When you are satisfied and ready, put on your cap of
ag1.ination and try to write about a happening that you re-
,!1\ know about: make its tale effective: use lively dialogue
Si \ell-placed quotation marks.

PI'cininal Not: \\Wih have you mastered well in your writ-
omn so tiar? Check and come up with a true answer, and then
resolve to add more skills to your battery to improve reader-
interest. Time is ,.o short now!
But right now you cant also try I,.t tailor your writing style
'0 sulit vour audience: for instance. when you write Itr a

young audience, use simple sentences and easy-to-under-
stand vocabulary.

Story Writing

Write a story based on the picture below.
Let it be approximately 400 to 500 words in length.
Add characters if you desire.
Write in Standard English.

Quotation Marks
Let us try to help you remember how it is done when us-
ing quotation marks expertly in your short story writing.

IRemember that you use quotation marks to enclose a di-
rect quotation (and when a quotation is interrupted by ex-
planatory words such as he or she wrote, use two sets of
quotation marks).]

IRemember also, to use single quotation marks around a
quotation within a quotation. E.g. My teacher smiled and
replied, "it was my mother who said, 'A good cook can never.
never make soup that does not taste well.'"I

In writing dialogue, begin a new paragraph and use a new
set of quotation marks every time the speaker changes. E.g.

"What page are you now reading, Samuel?"
"You have nothing to do than to disturb me, Simon Sin-
glet Singleton?"
"What are you, my mother?' shouted Samuel.

Work on completing the following sentences below. The
exercise should be challenging; and there are markers to
help you.
1. We would rather die on our feet said Sally Silver than.
live with our palms outstretched.
2. Prejudice is the child of ignorance quoted Janice Green..
3. Tennessee recited her poem It's All for the Good of:
4. Someone once said Most easy roads seem to lead
5. Desmond you get up the finance said Alana I'll paste-
up the .liers.
6. To be prepared for success said George is one of the
most effectual means of preserving life.
7. Do you know how to apply mouth-to-mouth breathing
asked Mrs. Henry?
8. The original title of Far From Danger is Do not Disturb
Sleeping Dogs.
9. Inspector John said Know the number of your national
identification card.

Remember: One other way of improving writing that de-
scribes a place is by using striking, image-creating details that
bring that place to life. Why not actually revisit the scene
and take a note book along?

Yes, revisiting the scene through memory is one kind of
observation, but, better than that, you can get a renewed
sense of a place if you revisit the location in person.
Upon location you can then ask questions, as you re-cre-
ate the scene in words.
Seek out what is the most striking thing about the scene.
Is it the smell? What colours do you see? What tell-tale
markings are visible?
Whatever you take jottings of should be the things you
need to include in the description for the readers to see what
you saw, and feel as you felt.

You can draw a sketch, make a video, or as we said be-
fore, take notes (Write the notes in your personal journal).
Anyway, just do whatever you think will help you re-create
the scene later when you sit down to write.

Here is what a student produced using the observation
and note-taking route to description.

School is out in very good weather, and there isn't much
to worry about except sleeping too late into the afternoon. I
head out to my favourite spot, a small patch of space to sepa-
rate me from the busy lives of all the bustling people. As I
lie there, the green dry grass plays hide and seek with my
fingers and toes. Sun and shade spot me like tie-dye con-
figurations, while a warm breeze keeps me company. The trees
overhead say, "Hello," as if they were old friends; they shade
and protect me just in case the sky might fall. I feel a warm
sun penetrating through the trees, making conversation with
the breeze as if they'd known each other for a thousand
years. I'm surrounded and encompassed by nature. I look
over the glistening lake and see ripples kissing the water's
surface. Scattered cotton clouds on blue wait to absorb ev-
erything around in just one season. The only things heard
are birds chirping and the breeze and trees discussing old
times. Peace is all around until sunset and later on.
(Michelle Kalski, Evanston Township high School,

In this descriptive paragraph, the young writer begins with
a topic sentence stating the main idea. She then organises
the supporting details in order of importance. See how she
has saved the strong, mood-capturing details for the end.
Some notes on specific sensory details have been put in
italics for your observation. What do they say to you? They
should say that the writer has relied on her notes for the spe-
cific sensory details. See how her original and unusual de-
tails make the passage more effective. Look at the end of
passage for this.

MUMBAI, India Bollywood hunk John Abraham will play
the lead opposite Hollywood's Rachel Welsz in a movie about
an American environmentalist's fight to save a famous Cali-
fornia redwood tree, the film's Canadian director said Tues-
"The true-life inspiration for the film, Julia Hill. just loved John,"
director Deepa Mehta told The Times of India about their meeting
last week at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
Securing American environmentalist Julia Butterfly Hill's ap-
proval for a relatively unknown Indian actor was critical to the movie.
Mchta said.
"She thought he looked like Antonio Banderas."
Abraham i ill plain an environmentalist in Luna the name Hill

A decade ago. Hill liied in the redwood to draw attention to
logging practices and to pre\ ent old-grow lth trests from being cut

er campaign and en ironimental protests helped make fewer
areas a liable for logging.


Abraham, a former model, has often been voted one of
Bollywood's sexiest stars in movie polls and has starred in sev-
eral blockbusters since he struck fame in the 2004 hit Dhoom,
or Bang.
He won praise for his role as a law student who falls in love
with a widow in Mehta's most recent Oscar-nominated film, Wa-
ter. The film dealt with the harsh treatment meted out to widows
in India in 1930s.
Mehta said Abraham was excited about the project. "He has a
full-fledged role opposite Rachel." she said. "John. who plays an
environmentalist in Luna. is not an Indian. nor an American in the
film. His culture, origins aren't specified."

cal activist in The Constant Gardener. She plays the unhappy
