UG Deans dishonest

A release issued by the Uni-
versity of Guyana regarding
the convocation at that insti-
tution, stated that it will be
held on Saturday, December 8,
2007 and that the members of
the Board have called for the
resignation of Pro-Chancellor
Dr. Prem Misir citing their
reason as 'his dishonesty at a
meeting with members of the
Committee of Deans, in rela-
tion to the reappointment and
promotion of a temporary lec-
turer to senior lecturer at the
Berbice Campus.'
According to information re-
ceived from a reliable source, a
meeting of Deans was convened
in October to get an update on
the situation. Dr. Misir ex-
plained to the Deans that the
promotion of Dr. Madan
Gopaul was not done in the way
that they thought, in the sense
that the UG council had not

usurped the role of the Aca-
demic Appointment Committee.
It was explained that any
faculty member who has a griev-
ance has the right to appeal to
the UG Council for redress and
according to reliable sources, the
lecturer had applied for the po-
sition of senior lecturer for the
last three years or so but he was
never given a response. Failing
to elicit a response to his ap-
plication he appealed to the UG
Council to seek redress. In this.
regard. the UG Council acted to
provide redress to Dr. Gopaul.
The same source confirmed
that the Deans have been dishon-
est since during the meeting.
they indicated to Dr. Misir that
they would be in a position to
conduct the convocation exercise
on November 10 as scheduled,
provided that they receive the
student profiles from the regis-
trar. The source also stated that

dFA rl Lei

Dr. Misir placed a call to the
Registrar in the presence of the
Deans when this was confirmed.
The Deans from the incep-
tion had claimed that they
would not be going ahead with
the convocation exercise until
their issues have been resolved
with the Council. Dr. Misir in-
dicated on several occasions that
there was no nexus between the
University not having the con-
vocation and issues involving

the UG Council and from all in-
dications this is a way of the
University grappling to save
The source confirmed
that Dr. Nanda Kishore Gopal
has been a long standing
member of the Council and
from many of the tfte-a-tete
with the Council has shown
tremendous understanding of
the statutes of' the University
of Guyana.

Ailing Reena Sultan (seated) with her husband Fazil Sultan

Mother, 29, needs

kidney transplant
A 29-year-old mother of one, and a victim of chronic renal
failure, is in urgent need of a kidney transplant, and is
making a desperate appeal for assistance towards raising
the cost of the surgical procedure and other related ex-
penses, amounting to about US$26,000.
Grief stricken Reena Sultan, battling pains and other discom-
forts of living without a functioning kidney, has already found a
donor, and much of the preparatory work has already been put
in place for her to have the surgery performed at the Kamataka
Nephrology and Transplant Institute in Bangalore, India.
However, even with the assurance of a donation of
US$5,000 from the Ministry of Health towards meeting the
required sum, and other donations kind hearted citizens, she is
still a far cry from meeting the remaining US$21,000.
Reena, who was diagnosed with kidney disease about seven
years ago, by doctors at the Georgetown Public Hospital, took
a turn for the worse about four months ago, after both kidneys
failed. Now suffering End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), she was
forced to commence dialysis treatment about three months ago.
Fazil, who has been forced to give up his full time job as a
Computer Technician, in order to care for his wife, is praying
in earnest that persons would respond generously to this ap-
peal, so Reena would be able to have a successful surgery and
return to help parenting their eight-year-old son Aaron.

Bangladesh cyclone toll tops 1600

By Anis Ahmed
DHAKA (Reuters) Military
ships and helicopters were
trying yesterday to reach
thousands of survivors of a
super cyclone that killed
more than 1.600 people and
pummeled impoverished
Bangladesh with mighty
winds and waves.
Cyclone Sidr smashed into
the country's southern coastline
late on Thursday night with 250
kph (155 mph) NWinds that
whipped up a five metre tidal
surge. It was the strongest cy-
clone since a 1991 storm that
killed some 143.000 people in
Navy ships scoured coastal
areas for hundreds of people re-
ported missing and sought to
clear river channels clogged with
sunken vessels to restore normal
navigation, officials said.
Helicopters flew sorties to
devastated areas, dropping food.
drinking water and medicine for
the survivors.
"We are here to help you.
You help us by allowing a safe

landing and keeping a safe dis-
tance." the pilot of a helicopter
warned people in Mathbaria,
Barisal district, as they thronged
towards his craft. television pic-
tures showed.
The official death toll rose
to 1.595 late on Saturday and
disaster ministry officials said it

was likely to rise further. Private
television channels said the death
toll had already crossed 2.000.
"It will take several days to
complete the search and know
lie actual casualty figure and ex-
tent of damage lo property," said
food and disaster ministry offi-
cial Ayub Miah.

efforts. "It's an uphill task," said
an official in Barisal.
Fakhruddin Ahmed, head
of Bangladesh's army-backed
interim government, asked
officials on Friday to "ensure
bodies are buried quickly" to
avoid the spread of disease.
The U.S. navy, which

Slovenian unions

stage mass protest for

higher wages
L.JUBLJANA (Reuters) Slovenian trade unions, students
and pensioners staged the largest rally in the country since
its independence in 1991, blocking traffic in the centre of
Ljubljana for several hours yesterday.
According to trade unions, some 70,000 people demanded
a general increase in salaries and pensions due to high inflation
and economic growth in a country that will take over the 6-
month rotating presidency of the European Union in January.
The protest came only two days before the government
faces a parliamentary vote of confidence tomorrow after
Slovenes elected the opposition-backed leftist Danilo Turk as
president last weekend by a wide margin.
"We demand higher wages," head of Slovenia's largest trade
union ZSSS, Dusan Semolic, told the public.
"We have high economic growth, we have high productiv-
ily, we have high profits and high manager rewards. We also
have high inflation and the prices of food are rising. The value

reads: 'For social Slovenia' during a protest in Ljubljana,

of wages is dropping," he added.
Turk joined the protest while the government was repre-
sented by the Labour Minister Marjeta Cotman who said that
workers deserve a good standard of living and not just survival.
Most economists say a general wage increase could further
fuel inflation, which has been rising steadily since the country
became the first of 10 mostly east European states that joined
the EU in 2004 to adopt the euro in January.
"We raise salaries because of high inflation but than higher
salaries cause further inflation pressures," said Bogomir Kovac,
a professor at Ljubljana's Faculty of Economy.

GUYANA'S RESPONSE to last Thursday's outrageous
act of aggression by Venezuela in blowing up two dredg-
ing pontoons in sovereign territory of this nation, was to
choose the sober, mature course of diplomacy.
This would be consistent with Guyana's preferred po-
sition under successive governments, prior to and since
independence from Britain, for a peaceful resolution to
the dispute arising from Venezuela's claim to two thirds
of this country's 83,000 square miles of sovereign terri-
Venezuela's territorial claim has persisted under
successive administrations in Caracas, right down to
President Hugo Chavez's, in the face of the
firm ruling by an 1899 international tribunal that the pre-
vailing demarcated boundaries constitute a "full, perfect
and final settlement..."
In contrast to Guyana's pursued path for an amicable
resolution, so that unhindered economic development
could be undertaken in areas of the Essequibo region-
to which Venezuela continues to arrogantly lay claim-
has now emerged last week's incursion by the Venezu-
elan military into Guyanese territory with invasion of its
airspace and destruction of two pontoons in the Cuyuni
Independent and objective monitors of Guyana-Ven-
ezuela relations may well ask whether that stunning act
of aggression-a most worrying demonstration of mili-
tary force by a "neighbour" with which we share vast, vul-
nerable borders-does not make a mockery of President
Chavez's own expressed commitment to follow a "new
path" in friendly relations with this country?
As diplomatic initiatives were continuing, there came
the assurance from Venezuela's ambassador to Guyana,
Dario Morandy, that investigations were being pursued
to determine the accurate situation, while stating that,
according to initial reports, the incident did not occur in
Guyana's territory.
There are fundamental differences in official prelimi-
nary explanations offered by Guyana and Venezuela; and
it is good to know that "investigations" are being carried
out into the circumstances of the tragedy.
However, the reality is that until proven otherwise,
with hard evidence, Guyana remains the victim of a
crude and unprovoked act of aggression by the Venezu-
elan military and deserves both appropriate apology and
More than quiet diplomacy seems also necessary.
The Guyanese people need to be publicly informed about
efforts being made to, for instance, inform our Caribbean
Community partners that have always demonstrated soli-
darity with Guyana.
In the interest of hemispheric peace and good rela-
tions, the Organisation of American States should also
be promptly advised about the blatant show of unpro-
voked aggression. Hopefully, a more informed and de-
tailed response would be forthcoming from the Guyana
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, while we also await a better
response from Caracas than that so far given.
Size and what it lacks in military power should not
translate to forfeiting of Guyana's democratic right to vig-
orously expose this horrible incident to the scrutiny of re-
gional and international public opinion.

Voters who couldn't care less

AFTER perusing Rickford
Burke letter to Stabroek
News on the 17/11/2007 en-
titled "My main criticism was
that the PNC leadership has
no plan" I am left with a
sense of "shock and awe".
Mr. Burke says "It was
Forbes Burnham and the PNC
who rescued Guyana from PPP
racial strife and national destruc-
tion in 1964". Well actually who
were the ones that supported
President Burnham new PNC
party when it was formed? Did
President Burnham know that
his split from the PPP would

cause a division in Guyana case
for self-rule? While the PNC
continues to think it actually
manoeuvred the Americans and
British to get to rule, when it
was the case that the British
and Americans manoeuvred
President Burnham and the
PNC to get what they wanted,
the PNC will continue to be
deemed as unsuitable for Gov-
erning Guyana. Understand this,
the PNC sided with outside
forces, against the rest of
Guyanese, to get to rule.
The Gentleman, Rickford
Burke, then goes on to say

The dishonesty
I have been following the saga on the Convocation, and it clear
and undoubtedly the reasons for the Deans delaying the Con-
vocation were ridiculous. It is evident that there is no nexus
between the issues of the University council and the Convoca-
One of the issues that the Deans seem to be fussing about is
the appointment of Dr Madan Gopaul as senior lecturer by the
But the Deans seem to be leaving out one important and sig-
nificant fact, and that is, that for about three years and more Dr
Gopaul had petitioned for a promotion to senior lecturer but to no
avail, and was denied by the Deans. Hence, Dr Gopaul appealed to
the Council and after careful evaluation, the Council promoted Dr
Madan Gopaul to senior lecturer.
What is important to note is that the Council is the supreme
governing body at the University, and has the authority to imple-
ment.any changes or policies that it feels necessary and appropri-
ate and in the best interest of the University of Guyana.
Also, after the Deans met with the Pro-chancellor in Oc-
tober, the Deans agreed to review the students' profiles so as
not to have a postponement of the Convocation. This agree-
ment was breached because the Deans continue to refuse to
meet and clearly this shows the dishonesty.


Freddie and

his vitriol

Freddie's hatred for and bitterness against this government
has become so pronounced that one wonders what is the real
motive behind this vitriol. Is it that though he has academic
skills, he is not among the favoured? I would tend to believe
that is so because Freddie speaks of the PPP's lack of a reser-
voir of intellectual skills to service the state sector.
So the power company has failed, according to Freddie and this
is because of an incompetent government that cannot run a salt goods
shop. Freddie is like the proverbial ostrich, so therefore he would
not be able to see due to his head being buried.
Though it can't run a salt goods shop, this government has been
given so many debt-write offs by the International Monetary Fund
and other countries! And why is this so? Guyana has built a satis-
factory track record of reforms with respect to social and macro-
economic and structural policy implementation. For a country to
be granted debt relief, it must satisfy certain criteria.
Not being able to run this salt goods shop, this government
has reduced the US$2.1billion debt to about $700million today.
This definitively is a reflection of poor management, isn't it?


Seems Deans are

politically motivated
After following the many articles on the delay in the Univer-
sity Convocation I feel compelled to pen this letter.
Why would people who are academicians hold hundreds of stu-
dents' future to ransom? Why were they deliberately not meeting
to agree on the date of the Convocation? I am aware that without
graduating many persons cannot get jobs and by applying delaying
tactics these academicians may have hampered some people's job
It would appear as though these Deans are politically motivated.
Why then, they who have been found out are now calling for
certain persons to resign? If this is not a ploy, and if this is not
political, what then is it?
I see that the Convocation will now be held on December
8. Who has forced them to agree on that date? Or is it that
their act has been exposed and they are trying to save face?

"And it was Desmond Hoyte
and the PNC who brought
about the so-called restoration
of democracy in 1992. What im-
provement has there been to
that same "democracy" brought
about by Desmond Hoyte?"
So a political party decides
to pursue the undemocratic
route then, when they realized
they did not make any headway,
decide to shout "we democratic
now". Thank us for it.
Mr. Burke then goes on to
say that the PNCR is under
threat from the PPP/C Govern-
ment "hegemony". Hello? Op-
position parties ARE always
under threat from Government
"hegemony". Simply put, the
Government tries to maintain or
improve its majority, while Op-
position parties try to improve
their votes. Except, in Guyana
where they are both trying to
undermine each other.
It should be instructive for
Mr. Burke to know that the
PPP/C obtained 37.4% of the
voting population. That means,
there was 62.6% of the votes
up for grabs. The fact that there
was voters apathy is not just a

Government problem. It is 1
Opposition as well that failed
gain these voters.
Simply put Rickfor
you're wrong in your "asses

At last
At last, the Deans have pushed aside their egos and met as
Academic Board to approve the potential Granduands' prof
for the 2007 Convocation.
Students who have studied for four long years can finally
ebrate their hard work with their family and friends. These
dents can now move from being granduands to becoming gradua
However, the announcement of December 8 as Convocation
not come without controversy, as the Deans called for the resign
tion of the Pro-Chancellor, Dr Prem Misir and long outstanc
Council member Dr Nanda Gopaul. If anything, these two individ
should be commended for putting the pressure on the Deans to
their act together and meet as an Academic Board to finalize
2007 Convocation.
What is certain is that the Deans have not yet reali
that students' priority comes first.


The Deans

refused to meet
The Deans at the University of Guyana, in an act of defia
deliberately refused to meet as an Academic Board to re,
students' profile for Convocation.
I would like to know, whether these Academicians who call tl
selves 'Deans' can produce to the public their publications
completed research that they have done?
The credibility of the University is at stake, and what is vi
important, is that these 'Deans' who are charged with senior
demic responsibility should produce and have appropriate acad
publications. If these Deans do not possess appropriate acad
profiles then the University of Guyana would have a hard time
regional, national and international credibility.
So please Deans, can we see your publications anc
search for the good of all Guyana?

WI Cricket-from

'crisis' back to 'glory'

Three 'wise men' report to WICB

THREE VERY respected wise men of the Caribbean Commu-
nity have come forward with a prescribed, practical approach to
lift West Indies cricket out of its 'crisis state' and return it to
its 'former glory'.
Their ideas are well crafted in a comprehensive reader-friendly
report officially submitted to the West Indies Cricket Board last
month with the understanding that it be made public for the benefit
of the real owners of our cricket-the region's people-and that an
implementation programme be actively pursued.
Comprising a "Governance Committee on West Indies Cricket",
appointed by the West Indies Cricket Board in February this year
under then President Ken Gordon, the trio of wise men-whose
choice had the full backing of CARICOM Heads of Government,
The former long-serving Prime Minister of Jamaica, P.J.
Patterson, one of the most dynamic political personalities of the
CARICOM region; Dr. Alister McIntyre, distinguished scholar,
thinker and former Vice-Chancellor of the UWI; and Dr. Ian
McDonald, outstanding author, social commentator and former busi-
ness executive.
What they have in common, beyond their known commitment
to the progress of the Caribbean and welfare of its people, is a
"shared addiction", as they admit, to our most famous game, cricket,
which they recognize as "an inseparable ingredient of the Caribbean
socio-political fabric".
Cricket is the sport for which the Patterson-led committee has
offered a working plan to enable a massive overhaul of the gover-
nance structure, stating from its "cradle"-schools' cricket-to mak-
ing a reality of a modem age Cricket Academy, hopefully during
Reflected in the committee's observations and recommendations
are helpful inputs from knowledgeable regional academic and sports
personalities, among.them were:
Professor Hilary Beckles, Principal of the UWI Cave Hill
Campus; (on the functioning of the 'cricket academy system'); Pro-
fessor Winston McGowan of the University of Guyana (with a
number of working papers on development of cricket); and Dr. Eddie
Greene, Assistant Secretary General of CARICOM (for knowledge
and experienced shared); plus an array of reports and other submis-
sions at levels of government, private sector and, of course the net-
work of national/regional cricket associations resulting from invited

Having earlier submitted an interim report, the. final work. ed-
ited by Carol Collins, was made available to the WICB on October
20 to coincide with a meeting held in Barbados.
Strangely, however, and contrary to what the committee had
expected, that meeting avoided a formal presentation and quietly
settled to posting the comprehensive report on the Board's website.
Question now for new WICB President Julian Hunte and his
Board colleagues. is how they intend to popularise thi committee's
report in the consciousness of the cricket-loving people of the Car-
ibbean and explain some of the implementation strategies to be pur-
What is at stake is the re-branding of West Indies cricket to
once again revive the spirit of West Indians in support of the game

for which this region is best known worldwide.
Within recent years consistent poor performances, in and out
of the region, have resulted in much anguish and bitterness and also
stirred yearnings for a return to a period when fame and fortunes
earned our team's envious international applause.

The recommended new governance structure of the WICB calls
for, among other proposals:
Scrapping the name,WICB in favour of Cricket West Indies
(CWI) with a two-tiered system:
The first will comprise a 23-member Cricket West Indies Coun-
cil (CWIC) involving a wide-cross section of stakeholders to help
guide the development of the game with specific policies and strat-
The CWIC will appoint the President, Vice-President and
the Executive Directors who are not appointed by the Territorial
The second tier, the CWIB (Cricket West Indies Board),
will consist of 15 members-President, Vice-President and 13
directors (six of them nominated by the Territorial Boards); a
cricket director appointed on the basis of nominations from
the Territorial Boards, plus other directors chosen by
CARICOM; the West Indies Players Association and other bod-
ies for their special expertise in operational areas; plus a Chief
Executive Officer to be responsible for management of the day-
to-day affairs.
CWIB/WIPA relations: It is proposed that both be represented
on a Standing Commitw- cha;,"ed with r'"nonsibility of ne"oliat-
ing and settling ter;ai, '- ., 1 .
before the commencement of a tour;
With a view to avoiding recurring conflicts between the Board
and the Association, the secretariat of the CWIB would endeavour
to have readily available services of a pool of industrial practitio-
ners with "good track records and proven experience".
Discipline and Remuneration: Implementing a firm policy of dis-
cipline., including appropriate sanctions, against defaulting players
as part of a determined approach to take team performance to "a
higher level".

It is felt that the Board has not been "sufficiently resolute" in
following up identified weaknesses of individual players. "Enforce-
ment must be rigid and sanctions must be consistent", said the com-
mittee. emphasising that "discipline reinforces success and quick-
ens recovery from failure..."
On, the other hand, the committee feels that consistent with
the practices elsewhere, the .remuneration of players should be based
on an agreed combination of basic pay and incentives for perfor-
mance. with the latter being given progressive emphasis.
Media/Public relations: The section devoted to this aspect, in-
cludes why .the Board should not simply function as the "official
purveyor of information on the ganie", hut treat the media as an
"integral partner", with representation oil the proposed 23-mem-
her Council and supported with professional slaff and equipped
with up-to-date technology.
Cricket Clubs: The Board. in cooperation with its Territorial



Boards, must address, as "an urgent priority", the serious question
of the "inadequate funding of clubs" to ensure their ability to carry
out critical functions.
Further, that an audit be commissioned into the state of club
cricket in the various territories to better guide decisions on how to
approach the resuscitation that is viewed as "vital for the return of
West Indies cricket to global ascendancy..."
20/20 cricket: The five-year agreement signed by the Board and
American entrepreneur Sir Allen Stanford covering the 20/20 series,
was commended by the governance committee.
Note was taken of the consensus by the 14 West
Indian "legends" serving as directors that the series "will
contribute significantly to the development of West Indies cricket".
However, the committee felt it necessary to observe that in
the revamped governance administration, the Board "must re-
main master of the destiny and structure of the game in the

Economic and Financial issues: Both the Board and the region's
governments are urged to "move speedily to solidify and expand"
linkages between cricket and other economic activities as part of a
new drive towards "the emergence of a broadly-based service
This, it is felt. could contribute towards "cushioning the im-
p;c' e current -.itiu' asriculturalindustries,
moving towards new pa .',,. co,,oni;c gio, ':vi/id development..."
Further, that consideration be seriously given to linking
cricket as a "major tourist attraction ', by utlising the legacy
of "Cricket World Cup 2007 in the form of infrastructure and
organisational expertise, in the designing and implementing
of programmes to foster "sports tourism" in different parts of
the Caribbean region. .
An essential feature for such an initiative would be the con-
tracting by the Board of "special field investigators" for the pur-
pose of preparing "specific feasibility and pre-investment studies"
to guide investment promotion. This step has been recommended
to be a "major focus" of the work of the Board's secretariat.
Governments are also encouraged to play "
role" in cricket development at the national levei, especially in giv-
ing required greater support for schools, clubs and women's cricket.
Since the WICB had established the governance committee, fol-
lowing consultation with CARICOM leaders; against the backdrop
of recurring crises in the game. it is now for the Board to inform the
public how soon it intends to announce official acceptance of the
three wise men's report and initiatives to be taken towards system-
atic implementation.
It may be useful for the governance committee, having com-
pleted its mandate, to be invited to offer suggestions on the
structure and functions of the implementation mechanisms to
be established to make a reality, as early as practicable, of the
vision for restoration of West Indies cricket to its much yearned
for "former glory".

SINCE 1981. HIV/AIDS have
claimed the lives of 25
million people globally and
orphaned about 15 million
children. Sub-Saharan Africa
in 2006 carried about 3
million new infections; and
these infections exceed those
for the other parts of the
world merged.
More than 80% of
heterosexual transmission of the
virus today is responsible for
most HIV infections; and
women, due to biological and
cultural raison d'etre, experience
asymmetrical anguish from the
AIDS pandemic.
Today, I stumbled on an
article in The Graduate on HIV/
AIDS from my Alma Mater
Queen's University, Belfast.
This article notes that
Chair in Pharmaceutics and
Director of Pharmaceutical
Sciences Research in the School
of Pharmacy Professor David
Woolfson and Lecturer in
Pharmaceutics Dr. Karl Malcolm
of Queen's University of Belfast
are conducting pioneering
research to fight HIV in Sub-
Saharan Africa.
These Pharmacists
concentrate on a controlled
release of multiple HIV
microbicides from vaginal rings
to prevent the heterosexual

transmission of HIV in women.
Woolfson and Malcolm
are part of an international
research consortium headed by
HIV Researcher Professor Robin
Shattock from St. George's
Medical School, London.
And the International
Partnership for Microbicides
(IPM). Washington DC, in

laboratory is set for this
Woolfson notes that: "To
protect women during
heterosexual intercourse, the
first option is to vaginally
deliver an agent, known as a
microbicide, that will block the
infection. The other approach is
to develop a vaccine to provide

IN the absence of a preventive HIV vaccine,
microbicides present a viable option to
condoms in the area of primary prevention
of HIV. And microbicides could empower
women to shield themselves and their
partners; also, women can effectively
control the use of microbicides, and would
not have need of cooperation or even
consent from their sexual partners.

acknowledging the pioneering
work of Woolfson and Malcolm,
will make available US$1.5
million to the School of
Pharmacy. Queen's University,
Belfast, for the creation of a new
research unit to continue work
on HIV microbicides.
This new laboratory
will administer several
projects that would include
polymeric vaginal rings (IVR)
for release of microbicides.
Inauguration of this new

widespread immunity to the
virus. Because of the many
hurdles to be overcome before a
vaccine can be developed, we are
hoping that the microbicide
approach will be quicker and
will allow us to gain some
control over the pandemic in the
medium term."
Woolfson, Malcom, and
others, in the American
Journal of Drug Delivery in
2006, explain that the

SHAUL Mofaz, the Israeli de-
fence minister, is not a fan of
Mohammed ElBaradei, the
head of the International
Atomic Energy Agency. In fact,
he wants him fired. "The poli-
cies followed by ElBaradei
endanger world peace.
His irresponsible attitude of
sticking his head in the sand over
Iran's nuclear programme should
lead to his impeachment,"
Mofaz said during a visit to
Washington in early November.
Mofaz was getting his re-
taliation in first. As he foresaw,
the IAEA director's report on
Iran's uranium enrichment
programme, released on 14 No-
vember, said that Tehran was
years away from an ability to
make nuclear weapons.
Not only that, but he said
that Iran is complying with a
work plan agreed with the IAEA
last August to clear up the re-
maining questions about a
project that the Iranians insist
was only ever about making fuel
for civilian nuclear power sta-
tions. How can you bomb a
country, or even impose serious
sanctions on it, if the head of
the IAEA won't accuse it of
seeking nuclear weapons?
Well. you can if you really
want to. It was the same
Mohammed ElBaradei who re-
ported to the United Nations
Security Council on 14 Febru-
ary. 2003 that "We have, to date,
found no evidence of ongoing
prohibited nuclear or nuclear-re-
lated activities in Iraq." The
States and Britain insisted
that their intelligence said oth-
erwise. Iraq was duly invaded.
and nobody even apologised
when no "prohibited nuclear or

nuclear-related activities" were
ElBaradei must feel a strong
sense of deja vu as his reports
on Iran four years later get the
same treatment in the major
Western countries. French De-
fence Minister Herve Morin re-
sponded that "Our information,
which is backed up by other
countries, is contrary Ito Mr.
ElBaradei's comments]" as if
Western intelligence agencies
had a strong record in this field.
For the simple-minded,
White House spokesperson
Dana Perino offered an even
clearer proof of Iran's wicked-
ness. Iran, she said, is "enrich-
ing and reprocessing uranium,
and the reason that one does
that is to lead towards a nuclear
weapon." Case closed.
Apart from the eight nuclear
weapons powers (the US. Brit-
ain, France, Russia, China. In-
dia. Pakistan and Israel), four
other countries already have
plants on their territory for "en-
riching and reprocessing ura-
nium" under IAEA safeguards:
Japan, Germany, the Nether-
lands and Brazil.
Argentina, Australia and
South Africa are also build-
ing or actively considering
uranium enrichment facili-
ties, again under IAEA safe-
guards. So there was some
rapid back-pedalling at the
White House when a journal-
ist inquired if all these coun-
tries are also seeking nuclear
U.S. National Security
Council spokesman Gordon
Johndroe was wheeled out to
"clarify" Dana Perino's state-
ment. "Each country is differ-
ent. but obviously Dana was

asked and was talking about
Iran." he explained. In other
words, the real proof that Iran
is seeking nuclear weapons lies
in the fact that we know in our
hearts that it is evil.
It really is as simple as that.
Iran's goal by its own account
is precisely the same as that of
Argentina, Australia or South
Africa: to acquire the ability to
enrich uranium for nuclear
power generation under full
IAEA safeguards. This is per-

fectly legal, and indeed is the
"inalienable right" of every sig-
natory under the Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Treaty (which Iran
has signed).
The problem is that this
same ability to enrich uranium
for nuclear power generation
also confers the ability to enrich
it much more for use in nuclear
weapons. So long as the IAEA
safeguards are in place that
won't happen, but if a country
later quits the NPT and expels
the IAEA (as North Korea did
in 2003), it doesn't take long to

a question of trust. Nobody
thinks Argentina will do that;
lots of people fear that Iran
Suspicions of Iran are even
greater because much of its early
work on uranium enrichment
was done secretly with equip-
ment bought on the black mar-
ket. There is a plausible expla-
nation for this ever since the
revolution of 1979, a US-led
boycott has made it almost im-
possible for Iran to buy nuclear
technology legally but it

Iran: The irrelevance of evidence

doesn't help Tehran's credibil-
ity now.
All ElBaradei can do is to
assess whether Iran is obeying
international law, but that is of
little interest to Israel and the
Western governments that are
convinced, rightly or wrongly,
that Iran's ultimate goal is
nuclear weapons.
That is why the issue was
taken away from the IAEA two
years ago and transferred to
the UN Security Council,
where the Western great pow-
ers can simply declare that

him and put him under house
arrest in early November un-
der his state of emergency.
If further signals were
needed to show that Musharraf
would brook no opposition, the
former Prime Minister Nawaz
Sharif was forcibly flown to
SaudifArabia when he returned
from exile following a Supreme
Court ruling that he had the in-
alienable right to enter and live
in Pakistan.
On the basis of these dete-
riorating conditions alone,
CMAG should have suspended
the Pakistan government when
it met in New York in Septem-
ber this year. It didn't. No doubt
there were members of the cur-
rent nine governments that make
up CMAG who were mindful
of the close relations that
Musharraf's regime enjoyed
with the George W Bush admin-
istration in Washington.
They would have been con-
scious too that suspending Pa-
kistan from the councils of the
Commonwealth would do little
to hurt Musharraf if no real
sanctions were imposed against
him by the countries that mat-
ter such as the U.S. and Britain.
Before the November 12th
meeting, the CMAG Chairman,

the Maltese foreign minister
Michael Frendo, indicated that
the Commonwealth's credibility
was. now at stake over
Musharraf and he wanted
CMAG to do what was right.
The ultimatum to Musharraf
was the result.
But, it is more to the U.S.
than the Commonwealth that the
Pakistani President paid atten-
In response to calls from
the U.S. President, Musharraf
has said that he would step
down as army chief by the end
of November and begin a new
presidential term as a civilian.
This depends on a ruling by jus-
tices of the Supreme Court say-
ing that he is legitimately Presi-
dent following elections earlier
this year.
He will get that ruling.
He made sure of it on Novem-
ber 3rd, when he purged the
Supreme Court of the Chief
Justice and others because he
feared that they would rule
that he could not have run for
President while he was still
Chief of the Army. Having
appointed his own people to
the Court, he might just as
well have written the script
for their decision.
It is unlikely that Britain
would apply sanctions against

Musharraf's government even in
the face of Pakistan's suspen-
sion from the councils of the
Commonwealth. London's
links to Washington in the so
called 'war on terror' would re-
main a primary concern.
So, with its meaningful bi-

pro-poor agenda

to growth and


AS global debates continue
to be exacerbated on the
issues of poverty reduction,
globalisation, inequality
and the widening gap
between the rich and the
poor, we in Guyana have
benefitted from a well
crafted, localised
development strategy that
has at its core principles
the reduction of poverty,
reduction in the gap
between the rich and the
poor and equitable
distribution of national
wealth whilst at the same
time maintaining sound
macro economic policies
leading to growth and
economic expansion.
Our National budget was
crafted in a pro- poor approach
to growth. This approach can be
simplified as empowering the
poor to benefit from growth.

Such growth changes the distri-
bution of relative income
through the growth process to
favour the poor. Such an ap-
proach is translated into
hardcore policies including:
1. Improving investment
2. Extending access to Edu-
3. Enhancing access for girls
to all levels of education.
4. Designing labour market
regulation to create more formal
employment for poor workers.
5. Improving access to in-
frastructure, particularly roads,
electricity, health, education and
6. Better link for rural areas
to township and urban develop-
7. Agricultural diversifica-
tion, sustainability and expan-
sions aimed at increasing the in-
comes of poor house hold.
8. Increasing infrastructure

and investment in the agricul-
tural sector to benefit farmnners
and reduce the cost of produc-
9. More equitable and sim-
plified procedures in accessing
10. Improvement and ex-
pansion in the development of
relevant and cost effective Tech-

ing incentives for farmers.
I wish now to spend some-
time in presenting bona fide
evidence of policies and re-
forms initiatives conceptual-
ized, implemented, and in the
process of being implemented
by the Government of
Guyana. Let us take these in-

pro poor approach to develop-
ment in the 2007 National

A number of initiatives
were undertaken by Government
to simplify and reduce the cost
of doing business in Guyana and
provide for a more equitable dis-
tribution in the taxation system.
Just this year our tax system
was further reformed in an ef-
fort to broaden the tax base,
making the system more effec-
tive and equitable. Various ini-
tiatives were undertaken to en-
able and encourage more invest-
ments especially for the most
vulnerable and economically de-
pressed areas for example, the
Linden Economic Advancement
Programme (LEAP) which saw
the injection of in excess of 12.5
million Euros capital resources
invested into Linden to stimu-
late growth and create employ-
ment. A clear and well defined
investment strategy was formu-
lated to improve the investment
climate and attract investors.
GO- invest was strengthened to
serve as Guyana's primary in-
vestment promotion and facili-
tation agencies, whilst the GRA
was also strengthened to in-
crease efficiency. On the expen-

diture side institutions that are
charged with procurement were
all strengthened and reformed
with an expansive and proactive
monitory and control mecha-
nism. We have all seen laudable
exhibitions locally, regionally
and internationally to promote
and generate export markets for
our products and produce.
To top it off, the govern-
ment has developed through
elaborate and extensive consul-
tation with almost all the stake-
holders a national competitive-
ness strategy. This strategy pos-
sesses a comprehensive analy-
sis of issues impacting
Guyana's competitiveness that
focuses on:
Improving the environ-
ment for private system invest-
ment, focusing on investment
promotion, reducing red tapes.
improving competition and pro-
tection of customers.
Strengthening our com-
petitiveness for export develop-
ment, focusing on expanding
trade, infrastructure, business
development services, access to
finance and skills development.

tential sectors to fast tract de-
velopment and enhance com-

allocated to education, rising
from 3.9% in 1997 to 5.6% in
1998. It is noteworthy that the
5.6% achievement was higher
than the HIPC agreement for
4.9%, demonstrating the
Government's commitment to
this agreement. For 2007 a total
of S15.6B has been budgeted
representing 15.6% of the na-
tional budget. Government has
committed itself towards
achieving the MDG of 100%
Primary Education Access which
it has achieved and it now mov-
ing towards Universal Second-
ary Education.
Government implemented
an Education Plan targeting
100% functional literacy and in
so doing is embarking on a
programme in ensuring this ob-
jective is achieved. Some ex-
amples of this commitment in-
clude the construction of the
Greenwich Park Primary
School, to the tune of $82m. In
Region 4, $368m is being spent
on the construction of a new

Secondary School at Diamond
and $134m on the North
Ruimveldt Multilateral School
in Georgetown. State-of-the-Art
Secondary Schools are being
constructed at Wisburg, Region
10 and Bartica, Region 7 to the
tune of $287m, $395m and
$395m respectively. With re-
spect to tertiary education gov-
ernment had allotted $450m to-
wards the student loan fund.
These are just a few examples
of Government's commitment
towards enhancing and improv-
ing the quality, delivery and ac-
cessibility of education to ben-
efit all Guyanese.

Commission Act was passed in
Parliament and the extension of
leases of state land from 25 to
50 years, thus providing the op-
portunity to utilise the leases as
collateral to access capital to
stimulate investment in the ag-
ricultural sector. The government
has also provided incentives and
support to farmers, through the
provision of modern infrastruc-
ture inclusive of farm to market

marketing support, credit facili-

are among few of the many ini-
tiatives undertaken by govern-
ment to improve capacity and
create an enabling environment
for the growth and development
of the agricultural sector. In ex-
cess of 10 billion capital re-

the agricultural sector in the

proximately 30 % of the Public

In less developed countries
in excess of 500 million people
lack ownership or owner rights
to land they cultivate. The re-

ment of Guyana would
strengthen the economic secu-
rity of ownership to the land

fonns have indeed led to increase
production, improved nutrition
for poor households and laid the
basis for a solid and sustainable
foundation for inclusive eco-
nomic growth, expansion of de-
mocracy, reducing instability
and provision for greater access
to credit facilities. Of course po-

The revision of the syllabus
to allow low achievers at the
National Grade Six Examina-
tions to spend six years at
secondary schools was a pro-
posal put to Minister of Edu-
cation, Shaik Baksh when he
met with teachers in Region
Six yesterday.

The Minister while on
Cabinet Outreach to the Region,
sought answers from teachers as
to why the schools were per-
forming poorly at the Caribbean
Secondary Education Certificate
(CSEC) examination. Teachers
said that the students, placed at
those schools were the lowest

achievers at the National Grade
Six Examinations. It was
pointed out that the ability of
the slow learners to assimilate
was not as fast as the high
achievers and as a result
changes in the curriculum were
The Minister was advised
that some of the students are
not able to perform at that level
because of their age and grade.
Some of the students were from
dysfunctional homes and had
social problems which created
special challenges for teachers.
The Minister said that
teachers needed more commit-
ment to tackle these challenges.
The problem, the teachers ad-
vised, started at the primary
'level where the basics were not
being assimilated.
The Minister told teachers
that the Ministry had recognized
this and the result is the imple-
mentation of the National
Grade Exams at Levels Two,
Four and Six. This was done so
that they could identify defi-
ciencies earlier and intervene
with remedial action. The teach-
ers reported that many students
sent to those schools were in
need of special education for
which they were not trained.
Minister Baksh pointed out
that the Ministry has the ser-
vices of two teachers from the
Voluntary Services Overseas
(VSO) who are qualified in the
area of special education and
will be working with teachers to
assist in the short-term.
The Ministry will also be
looking at setting up more
schools to cater for children
with special needs, the Min-
ister told teachers. The stu-
dents who are the lowest per-
formers at the CSEC exams
are required to complete the
same subjects at the same
rate as high achievers, and
this is causing many low
achievers to drop out of the
school system. (GINA)

to get our way. Since women
are good at crying to gain sym-
pathy, some men are good at
temper tantrums to gain atten-
tion. Less commonly under-
stood are denial, avoidance and
These devices become an
integral part of overt personal-
ity as we experiment with them
in infancy and childhood. The
device that seems to be learned
best are the ones for which we
are rewarded. This is not to
deny the biological predisposi-
tion. The stronger individual
lends to be more aggressive and
will use aggression or displace-
ments. The weaker is more
likely to cry or have a temper
lanlrinum. Once we find out the
ones 1ha1 get us what we want,
we continue to use them., be-
coming more efficient with time.
While one device may be more
predominant, we may employ
others so that we have a cohort
of devices, some more predomi-
nant than others. These become
modifiedl with time and circum-
stances but the core will remain.
These devices such as ratio-
nIalizing are not meant to hurt
anyone but to protect the inner
selfl-the ego--a delicate and
jealously guarded inner core of,
our personality. Even when we
are sorry 'or what we did or
Ieel reimorse. we are re luctant to1
admit because it means self-
blame or sell-deprecation. The
ego does not want to be as-

saulted. It must be noted that
individuals who have been
physically or mentally hurt in
childhood or has been sexually
abused, the ego needs to be more
protected and so they build a
wall around that inner-self.
Such children and individuals are
difficult to reach in counselling
or psycho-therapy.
The coping device of denial.
like any other device, is to pro-
tect the ego.
Three various types of de-
nial. One is on the self "'Ex-
amples are, "I do not have a
problem, I am not like others".
Another type of denial is in
others; others with whom we
have come to identify. "My son
is not a criminal; he has been led
astray by others". "Bad com-
pany". The identity reflects
and impinges on one's ego: in
this case the mother. A mother
writing to Sigmund Freud about
her son's sexual orientation re-
fused to utter the word homo-
sexual. Such denial was the be-
ginning and a significant element
in dealing with the problem.
There are different pro-
cesses in the denial. First are
the language and the connola-
lion of the words such as
"thief'. "alcoholic". These are
harsh words and have come to
have strong negative connota-
lions. To attribute these to ones
self would be hurting the ego.
unless one is psychotic and no
guilt is evident or expressed.

One psychiatrist (Elizabeth
Kubber Ross) places denial as
the first of five stages in the in
the death of a close family
member denial, anger bargain-
ing depression and acceptance.
The process of counselling
and therapy is to allow a free
flow of emotions, and accepting
the denial process to be evident,
focusing on the areas which are
being denied. Note the language
and non verbal behaviour The
alcoholic says "I am not alco-
holic". "I do drink quite often".
It must be noted that coun-
sellors and therapists often use
denial in their practices. They
themselves may have been
abused. As such they want to
protect a client. The treatment
process becomes warped and
impedes treatment and rehabili-
In spite of these devices

nisms, immature and de-

Water woes in

Berbice will be


Minister Nawbatt

Minister of Housing and Water, Harry Narine Nawbatt Fri-
day met with residents of several Berbice communities and
assured them that their concerns with respect to water will
be addressed.
Minister Nawbatt, accompanied by Minister of Amerindian
Affairs Carolyn Rodrigues visited Mara, Schepmoed, Littletown,
Edingburg and Ondemeeming communities on the East Bank of
Berbice during the Cabinet Outreach to the region.
Timely access and policy with respect to water were among
the concerns expressed by the residents.
During the visit to Schepmoed Primary school, Minister
Nawbatt discovered that the water supply was lacking, while
at Littletown residents informed the Ministers that the distri-
bution system was not efficierit. The community, according to
some residents, relies on the well-system which is only func-
tional during high-tides. The well was made available through
the Education for all Fast Track Initiative Programme.
Both Ministers simultaneously addressed issues in differ-
ent communities because of their similarities.
Minister Nawbatt assured the residents that the Guyana
Water Inc (GWI) will visit Littletown and other attached com-
munities to address their water issues.
Concerns about water were also expressed at the
Edingburg Community Centre ground by residents who
were mainly from the Glasgow Housing Scheme. Minis-
ter Nawbatt explained that the water problem experienced
in Berbice is not new, and alluded to leakage as one of the
major contributor to poor supply. He noted that $2B has
already been spent on pipelines and a treatment plant to
serve these areas. (GINA)

HIV/AIDS in Guyana

Christianity and HIV/AIDS

The history of Christianity and
HIV/AIDS has been a checkered
one at best. Largely because
AIDS turned up in the homo-
sexual population before it
turned up in the larger general,
HIV infection was seen by
many Christians as Divinely or-
dained punishment for, or the
natural consequence of, a
lifestyle that the Christian
religion's source-text, the Holy
Bible, describes as "an abomi-
As early as 1983 for ex-
ample, when little was known
about AIDS and before the dis-
covery of the Human Immuno-
deficiency Virus (HIV). US neo-
conservatli\e Pat Buchanan
wrote in one article in the LA
Times "'"The poor homosexu-
als they haxe declared war
upon nature, and now nature is
extracting an awful retribution."
Seven years later, with
much more known about the
disease, including the fact that
heterosexuals were falling prey
to the disease as much as homo-
sexual, Buchanan wrote again
that "With 80,000 dead of AIDS,
our promiscuous homosexuals
appear literally hell-bent on
Satanism and suicide."
While, largely due to legis-
lation on hate speech, such
strong rhetoric has died down in
recent years, Christianity has
often found itself at odds with
the secular HIV/AIDS move-
ment. From the Catholic
Church's absolute ban on con-
dom use to evangelical insistent
that abstinence and marital fidel-
ity should be the major aspect
of the HIV prevention response,

tions to the full out fuelling of

The Abuse of Press Freedom T

By Rev. Kwame Gilbert

Recently, there has been an
out cry from several groups
and individuals against what
some refer to as "an attack on
press freedom in Guyana".
The context of this charge is
leveled at Government, and
suggests that the position that
the Government has taken is
discriminatory .Well, let's
look at it from another per-

Sometimes, liberties we en-
joy, taken for granted, can be
abused to the point that we er-
roneously assume these liber-
ties are undeniable rights that we
have. So is the case with the
media. While many continue to
advocate that government act
responsibly, it must also be
made clear that the media must
act responsibly.
The Bible talks about us us-

ing our liberty as a cloak of
maliciousness, a practice that
is condemned. If we believe
that freedom consists in doing
and saying as one pleases, if
we transgress the bounds of
what is moral and decent, we
are not only injuring others,
but committing social suicide
as well.

of the approach by the media

would suggest that we have seen
from time to time a wanton abuse
of the freedom of the press that
is harmful to the credibility of in-
dividuals, and injurious to the
image and political stability of
our country. I am an advocate of
impartial reporting, and a non-
partisan approach to journalism,
which means a reporting of both
the good and the bad, the suc-
cesses as well as the failures.
I was told by a close friend
of mine in the media, "Reverend,
the last people you want to make
your enemy, are the media". 1
fully concur that the media are
powerful people.
It is an. engine which men
have grown to fear, for they have
the power to hurl Kings from
their thrones, and make a miscre-
ant into a star. The media can
make people like you or loathe
you; embrace you or repudiate
you. All of this is within the
power of the media. Hence one
must have a greater appreciation
for the level of responsibility re-
quired from the media in not
abusing the liberty they have.
When the media uses its lib-
erty to launch an assault on an
individual or an institution with-
out respect for character, for
right for truth, then I say, the
days in which we live are peril-
ous. The ideal is that the press
ought to be a mirror of truth, not
an engine of falsehood. Let us
consider the plight of a people
constantly and deliberately fed a
daily diet of falsehood. What we
create is a generation of people

totally messed up, mentally,
emotionally, intellectually, and I
dare say, spiritually. The Bible
did say that "You shall know
the truth and the truth shall
make you free".
It is sad also that the pub-
lic appetite demands the excite-
ment of diatribe, which has fu-
elled the unprofessional subcul-
tures emerging in some parts of
the media. The public taste is
cherished by indulgence, its ap-
petite is whetted by every new
supply from the press; and so
the press makes the meat it
feeds upon, and more copi-
ously it furnishes such food,
the more ravenous will be the
morbid appetite for its malig-
nant flavor.
I say, to fix this, let the
press cease to pamper a public
lust it has so largely encouraged;
and so far as we are concerned,
let us, viewers and readers, dis-
countenance the evil.
For example, I have always
been extremely concerned about
the airing of a particular televi-
sion programme called the Jerry
Springer show. While, I am
aware of the need for variety in
the supply of entertainment, I
fail to see the logic in paying
such a high price for entertain-
ment; for it is a high price in-'
deed. The Jerry Springer show
as well as some others, is noth-
ing but filth.and perversion,
which makes no meaningful
contribution to the develop-
ment of a people. I see no na-
tional or individual benefit in

its airing. Some things as a
people, we absolutely do not
Then there is the issue of a
lack of patriotism in the ap-
proach of some within the me-
dia community. Any way that
is enough for one week.
I would wish to leave a
word of caution to our young
aspiring journalists and me-
dia operatives. Two things
we should always bear in
mind in every presentation:
first, not to ascribe motives
to another. You are in no po-
sition to determine another
person's motive for doing
what they do. Secondly,
never attack personal char-
acter. Personalities are
translucent. Motives are se-
cret. We cannot pronounce
on motives with certainty,
and character is too precious
and sacred a thing to treat
with levity. Let us work on
restoring credibility to the
media, by being responsible.

Containers outside the packaging facility

Record 76,000kg fruit/vegetable

processed at Sophia Pack House

A record 76,000kg of fresh
fruits and vegetables destined
for several CARICOM coun-
tries were recently processed
at the Guyana Marketing
Corporation's (GMC) Cen-
tral Packaging Facility, lo-
cated at the Sophia Exhibi-
tion Complex.
Chairman of GMC's Board
of Directors, Geoffrey Da Silva,
during a visit to the facility last
week amid a hive of activity in
preparation for the exports, in-
dicated that since the establish-
ment of the Pack House in
2001.,this is the first occasion
that such large quantities of
fruit and vegetable. ,are beine
-ptro-iCe;ed for e\port at the
same time.
"This is an indication that
GMC, under the umbrella of the
Ministry of Agriculture, is effec-
tively working with farmers and
exporters to further increase the
export of non-traditional agro-
produce to both new and exist-
ing CARICOM markets," he said.
During the Chairman's visit,
four 40ft and two 20ft contain-
ers could be seen on the road
adjacent to the Pack House,
where the process of stacking
had already commenced.
General Manager of GMC,
Nizam Hassan, disclosed that
data collected so far for 2007
show a significant increase in the
exports of fresh fruits and veg-
etables when compared with the
same period for 2006.
"It is in keeping with the
continued growth of this sec-
tor which is anticipated over
the next several years, and a
need to upgrade our facilities
to internationally acceptable
standards that we have under-
taken to rehabilitate the
Sophia Pack House. The
infrastructural and other work
recently executed will ensure
that the facility is capable of
simultaneously processing an
increased number of exports,

while maintaining the highest
standards possible," Hassan
Three additional packaging
facilities located at Parika,
Charity and Number 43 Vil-
lage, Berbice, are being estab-
lished to support post-harvest
Da Silva said that feedback
received from several investors
currently in Guyana exploring
business opportunities that exist
in the agriculture sector have been
positive, since efforts are con-
tinuously being made to upgrade
facilities and maintain an investor-
friendly business climate.
S The Slipping C'.nlpahie .
such as those transporting these
containers to their various des-
tinations in the Caribbean, must
also be commended for their role
in the entire process, and must
be seen as important players in
the drive to expand exports,"
Da Silva said.
Manager Packaging Facili-
ties, Celestine Butters, indicated
that some of the produce being
exported includes plantain,
pumpkin, eddoe, watermelon,
pineapple, dried coconut, or-
ange, tangerine and papaya.
The first shipment of pine-
apples to St. Lucia commenced
several weeks ago after a team
of officials from the island give
the green light following an in-
spection of a farm at Canal
Number One Polder, West Bank
Demerara, on September 18.
Pineapple exports to the is-
land have since increased from
an initial 227kg to more than
6,000kg over a period of two
The Guyana Marketing
Corporation in keeping with its
mandate played an integral role
in ensuring that the process of
exporting pineapples to the is-
land was successful. The agency
facilitated the .sourcing of the
produce, as well as the visit and
inspection conducted by the St.

Lucian officials, in addition to
providing marketing and techni-
cal advice.
Hassan also indicated that

exports to neighboring
Trinidad and Tobago have
shown a steady increase over
the past several months, and

from all indications, this trend
is expected to continue.
A Protocol of Trade exists
between Guyana and several
CARICOM States such as Bar-
bados, Antigua and St. Lucia,
which clearly stipulates the re-
quirements imposed by each

Exporters to these coun-
tries must purchase produce
from certified farmers. All
produce must be processed at
the Central Packaging Facil-
ity, and all produce should be
inspected and certified by, a
local Plant Quarantine Of-
ficer (A GMC Feature).

(BBC News) United Nations
Secretary General Ban Ki-
moon has challenged govern-
ments to act on the findings
of a major new report on cli-
mate change.
Launching the latest report
from the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change, he
said real and affordable ways to
deal with the problem existed.
The IPCC states that cli-
mate change is "unequivocal"
and may bring "abrupt and ir-
reversible" impacts.
Mr Ban urged politicians to
respond at a UN climate change
conference in Bali.
"Today the world's scien-
tists have spoken clearly and
with one voice," he said. "In
Bali 1 expect the world's
policymakers to do the same."
Mr Ban arrived at the IPCC
meeting in Valencia from a fact-
finding trip to Antarctic and
South America.
"I come to you humbled af-
ter seeing some of the most pre-
cious treasures of our planet
threatened by humanity's own
hand," he said.
"All humanity must assume
responsibility for these treasures."
Unavoidable effects
The IPCC report
synthesises the three aspects of
climate change that it has al-
ready pronounced on earlier in
the year, on the science, the
likely impacts, and options for

dealing with the problem.
Among the top-line conclu-
sions are that climate change is
"unequivocal", that
humankind's emissions of green-
house gases are more than 90%
likely to be the main cause, and
that impacts can be reduced at
reasonable cost.
One declaration that report-
edly caused heated discussion
during the week-long talks here
states that climate change may
bring "abrupt and irreversible"
Such impacts could include
the fast melting of glaciers and
species extinctions.
"Approximately 20-30% of
species assessed so fair are likely
to be at increased risk of extinc-
tion if increases in global aver-
age temperature exceed 1.5-2.5C
(relative to the 1980-1999 aver-
age)," the summary concludes.
Other potential impacts
highlighted in the text include:
between 75m and 250m
people are projected to have
scarcer fresh water supplies
than at present
yields from rain-fed agri-
culture could be halved
food security is likely to
be further compromised in Africa
there will be widespread
impacts on coral reefs
The panel's chairman,
Rajendra Pachauri, highlighted
the need to deal with impacts
which are coming whether or
not global emissions are curbed.
Even if levels of C02 in the

atmosphere stayed where they are
now, he said, research showed sea
levels would rise by between 0.4
and 1.4 metres simply because sea
water would continue warming up,
which makes it expand.
"This is a very important
finding, likely to bring major
changes to coastlines and inun-
dating low-lying areas, with a
great effect in river deltas and
low-lying islands," he said.
"If you add to this the melting
of some of the ice bodies on Earth,
this gives a picture of the kinds of
issue we are likely to face."
This is the IPCC's fourth
major assessment of global cli-
mate change since its formation
nearly 20 years ago.
During the course of its ex-
istence, it has become more
certain that modern-day cli-
mate change is real and princi-
pally due to human activities;
it has also become firmer about
the scale of the impacts.
"If you look at the overall
picture of impacts, both those
occurring now and those pro-
jected for the future, they appear
to be both larger and appearing
earlier than we thought [in our
2001 report]," Martin Parry, co-
chair of the impacts working
group, told BBC News.
"Some of the changes that we
previously projected for around
2020 or 2030 are occurring now,
such as the Arctic melt and shifts
in the locations of various species."
There are indications that
projected increases in droughts

are also happening earlier than
expected, he said, though that
was less certain.
The IPCC considered about
29,000 pieces of real-world evi-
dence in compiling this report,
as well as the projections of
computer models.
These include observations
showing that dry areas of the
world such as the Sahel and
southern Africa are receiving
less rainfall, while it has in-
creased in northern Europe and
parts of the Americas.
The panel suggests societies
need to adapt to future impacts,
as well as curbing emissions.
Without extra measures,
carbon dioxide emissions will
continue to rise; they are already
growing faster than a decade
ago, partly because of increas-
ing use of coal.
The IPCC's economic
analyses say that trend can be
reversed at reasonable cost. In-
deed, it says, there is "much
evidence that mitigation actions
can result in near-term co-ben-
efits (e.g. improved health due
to reduced air pollution)" that
may offset costs.
The panel's scientists say
the reversal needs to come
within a decade or so if the
worst effects of global warming
are to be avoided.
The findings will feed
into the Bali talks on the UN
climate convention and the
Kyoto Protocol which open on
3 December.

Iran says ready to

act if attacked

MANAMA (Reuters) Presi-
dent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
said yesterday Iran was ready
to respond if attacked, but
played down the prospect of
war with the United States.
Ahmadinejad was speaking
during a visit to Bahrain which
came amid mounting concerns in
the Gulf that the United States
could launch military action
against Iran, although Washing-
ton says it is committed to a
diplomatic solution to a crisis
over Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
"We never want any war in
this region, but from another
front, we have made all prepa-
rations, and if there is any sus-
picion on this matter, then we
are ready." said Ahmadinejad,
speaking through an interpreter.

Iran ban

for Garcia

Marquez novel

(BBC News) The latest novel by Colombian writer Gabriel
Garcia Marquez has been banned in Iran but only after
censors noticed its title had been sanitised.
The book, Memories of My Melancholy Whores, was pub-
lished in Farsi as Memories of My Melancholy Sweethearts.
The first edition of 5,000 had sold out before the authori-
ties realized.
The novel tells the story of a man who wants to mark his
90th birthday by sleeping with a 14-year-old virgin in a brothel
and ends up falling in love.
Iran's culture ministry said a "bureaucratic error" had led
to permission being granted for the book's publication, the Fars
news agency reported. The official responsible had been sacked,
Fars said.
The book sold out within three weeks of arriving in Iranian
But the book angered religious conservatives who drew the
authorities' attention to its original title and content.
The ministry of culture and Islamic guidance, which must
approve all publications in Iran. then refused to issue a permit
to allow the book to be reprinted.
Iran has tightened censorship of books since President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came to power in 2005.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who was awarded the Nobel prize
for literature in 1982. is popular in Iran, which has published
many of his books, including One Hundred Years of Solitude
and Love in Ihe Time of Cholera.
Memories of My Melancholy Whores relates the life of an
aged man who had always slept with prostitutes but who wants
on the night he turns 90 to give himself a night of "wild love'
with an adolescent virgin.
A brothel madam finds a girl for him. but when he arrives
at the brothel the girl is asleep.
From then on, he spends every night watching the girl
sleep, finding love at the end of his life.

The Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC), in collaboration with the International Tropical Timber
Organization (ITTO) is implementing a project aimed at enhancing legality in forestry activities in Guyana
through the utilization of remote sensing imagery analyses and.the integration of bar coding technology in
timber tracking.
j Applications are invited for th'e following positions:

A 5.5m long minke whale has
been spotted more than
1600km (994 miles) from the
Atlantic Ocean, deep inside
the Amazon rain forest.
The whale ran aground ear-
lier this week but after being
freed with the help of vets and
biologists it disappeared shortly
It is the second time this
week in Brazil that a lost ani-
mal has been spotted in an un-
expected location.
The minke whale ran
aground on a sandbar deep in-
side the Amazon.
Local people had been
splashing water on the whale's
back and fin while it was ex-
posed to the hot Amazon sun.
The whale is said to weigh
about 12 tons.
Reports of a mysterious
animal in the area had been caus-
ing alarm among locals near to
the Tapajos river, a tributary of
the Amazon.
Experts say the animal
could have been in the area for
a couple of months.
After the whale was freed,
helicopters and boats were in-
volved in a search of the area

but nothing was found.
A biologist said it was
thought the animal became sepa-
rated from its group and swam
upstream, until it ran aground
near Santarem in Para state.
While it is not unprec-
edented, it is unusual for whales
to venture so far into fresh wa-
The whale is not the only
animal to get lost in Brazil this
On Thursday a young rep-
tile which was 1.5m long -
turned up at a popular beach in
Rio de Janeiro and had to be
rescued by firemen.
They had been searching for
the alligator for some time and
had closed Barra beach, but de-
spite this some swimmers in-
sisted on entering the water.
The caiman, or yellow
stomach alligator as it is known
in Brazil, was taken to a local
zoo for treatment for a broken
This endangered species
is normally found in freshwa-
ter swamps and marshes, and
the fire service in Rio said it
was the first time they had
rescued one from the sea.

Japan to


whaling mission
(BBC News)Japan has confirmed that it will carry out its larg-
est whaling programme in the South Pacific.
The mission, expected to draw strong protests from environ-
mentalists, will depart on Sunday and breaks a 44-year moratorium
on hunting humpback whales.
Japan's fisheries ministry said the fleet had instructions to kill
up to 1,000 whales, including 50 humpbacks.
Japan was forced to abandon commercial whaling in 1986, but
has since carried out whaling for "scientific research".
Four whaling ships, including the lead craft Nisshin Maru, will
depart from the southern port of Shimonoseki.
The 239-man mission plans to kill more than 900 minke whales
as well as fin whales and humpbacks, in a South Pacific whale hunt
that will run until mid-April.
The 8,000 metric tonne Nisshin Maru was crippled by a fire
on a whaling mission in the Antarctic in March. One crew member
was killed.
A Greenpeace campaign ship will be following the Japanese fleet.
Tokyo's plan to target the humpback which was hunted to
near extinction four decades ago has drawn condemnation from
"Humpbacks are very sensitive and live in close-knit pods. So
even one death can be extremely damaging," Greenpeace spokes-
man Junichi Sato said.
Japanese fisheries officials insist both humpback and fin popu-
lations are back to sustainable levels.
"Humpback whales in our research area are rapidly recovering,"
fisheries spokesman Hideki Moronuki said.
"Taking 50 humpbacks from a population of tens of thousands
will have no significant impact whatsoever," he said.
Mr Moronuki said killing whales allows marine biologists to
study their internal organs.
Meat from Japan's scientific catch is sold commercially but Japa-
nese officials deny that the mission plans to make a profit.
Japan argues that whaling is an ancient Japanese tradition, and
has pushed unsuccessfully at the International Whaling Commis-
sion to reverse the 1986 moratorium on commercial whaling.
Environmentalists say Japan's research programme is a
pretext for keeping the whaling industry alive:

Lara a no-show as ICL

practice sessions open


NEW DELHI, India (CMC) -
The controversial Indian
Cricket League (ICL) swung
into action on Friday with
preparatory camps being
launched across various cities
but there was still no sign of
former West Indies batting
star Brian Lara.
Though several of the inter-
national players attended the
practice sessions, the 38-year-
old master batsman was a no-
Pakistani batsman
Inzamam-ul-Haq, who quit in-
ternational recently, was also
absent from the camp, expected

to run for 10 days in the build-
up to the tournament.
Media reports here this
week said Lara had conveyed to
tournament organizers Essel
Group through his lawyers in
London, his decision to pull out
of the Twenty20 Championship
scheduled to be played from
November 30 to December 16
at Panchkula near Chandigarh.
Tournament organizers,
however, dismissed these re-
ports and assured that Lara
would arrive as scheduled for
the start of the tournament.
Lara, who holds the record
for the highest Test and first

'I want my ball...

but took his career tally
to exactly 100 during an un-
beaten knock of 67 that al-
lowed Australia to declare on
542-5 and chase victory.
He signalled his intentions
to go after the Sri Lankan bowl-
ing when he clubbed Lasith
Malinga over the mid-wicket
fence for his first six before tea
but saved his best for
Muralitharan, who needs just six
more wickets to break Shane
Warne's world record of 708
Test dismissals.
Gilchrist carted Muralitharan
over the boundary ropes to reach
99 sixes then sent the very next de-
livery out of the stadium to make
it an even hundred.
"I've been aware of this
100 sixes milestone because
I read about in the paper but
I hadn't really thought about
it at all until I hit that first
six off Malinga today and I
went 'oh that's right, it's
coming up'," he said.
"It came into my mindset a
bit and I tried a slog sweep off
Murali that I skied and nearly
got caught ... so I had to settle
"I was able to clear my
mind after that and the sixes at
the end were very natural free
flowing shots, I wasn't trying to
bludgeon the ball over the rope
or anything."
Gilchrist is on, of the
cleanest hitters in world
cricket and has made a career
out of destroying some of the
best bowling attack- but says
he never goes out to bat with
the sole intention hitting,
"I try not to thin about it.
I don't try to force ; 1 gener

try to play instinctively," he

"There is a split-second or
even a nano-second, just a mo-

else knows but that's just the
best feeling you can have as
a batsman."

the tournament but said
there was a sense of betrayal
back in South Africa.
"The Twenty20 format is

The ICL has come under
fire from the Indian Cricket
Board who have threatened to
ban players who sign up for the
league. They have also launched
their own Twenty20 league, the
Indian Premier League (IPL), to
counter the ICL.
Sri Lankan authorities
have also said they will ban
any of their players who also
join the ICL but former Sri
Lankan all-rounder Upul
Chandana became the first
player to defy the threat
when he signed for the league
last week.

Injured Maharoof almost

certain to miss England series

By Julian Linden
HOBART, Australia (Reuters)
- Sri Lanka's troubled tour of
Australia worsened yesterday
with news that pace bowler

Maharoof badly injured his
loot during the second Test
against Australia in Hobart ar)-

said he had been diagnosed with
a stress fracture.
"He'll be out for at least
four to five weeks, it could be a

causc .e is a fast bowler andi hv
needs to put his weight on thea'
anklc," Jayawardene told a o c'.',
"He'll be definitely out o

Jayawardene said Maharoof
suffered the injury on the open-
ing day on Friday but continued
to bowl after getting it strapped.
However, he did not take
any part in the match yesterday,
leaving the tourists a bowler
"Maharoof started com-
plaining about the ankle yes-

up and he howled re,, 'y well
with ;i yest' : day,"
Jayawar-:' e" said.
"He': a guy who its the

Heat for eighth

straight win

BOSTON, Mass. (Reuters) The unbeaten Boston Celtics
won their eighth straight game when Paul Pierce con-
nected on a layup with 25 seconds remaining to secure a
92-91 victory over the Miami
Heat on Friday.
Kevin Garnett chipped in
with 26 points and 11 re-
bounds as the Celtics started
the season 8-0 for the first
time since 1972.
The Heat's Dwyane Wade
missed a contested jump shot
that would have won the game
as time expired after Boston's
James Posey, a former Miami
team mate, pressured him on
the play.

ter deficit to take the lead at 91-90 on Udonis Haslem's
free throw with 33 seconds on the clock.
But Pierce, who had 12 points, worked his way inside for
the winning basket.
"Truthfully, I was surprised coach called the play for me,"
Pierce told reporters.
"I've been struggling with a strain in my back but
he still has tremendous confidence in me in all of
us and I wanted to be there for my teammates at
the end."
Ray Allen added 19 points, Posey 13 and Rajon Rondo had

Wade, making his first start after knee and shoulder surgery
in the off-season, led Miami (1-8) with 23 points on 8-of-15

CENTURION, South Africa
(Reuters) Jacques Kallis

lish South Africa's lead over
New Zealand in the second
Test yesterday.
Kallis' 131 was the top
score in South Africa's total of

also his fastest, coming off 143
The all-rounder and Hashim
Amla, who was 89 not out at
the early close, shared a stand
of 220 for the third wicket.
New Zealand had resumed
on 187-8 but were dismissed
just four balls into the first over
of play when Chris Martin
edged a delivery from paceman
Makhaya Ntini and was caught
by Kallis at second slip with-
out scoring.

HOBART, Australia (Reuters)
- Adam Gilchrist became the
first player to smash a I00
sixes in Test cricket in a bru-
tal display of power-hitting
that put Australia in control
of the second Test against Sri
Lanka yesterday.
Gilchrist clubbed three mas-
sive sixes, including two in suc-
cession off Sri Lankan spinner
Multiah Muralitharan. to blaze
his way to an unbeaten 67 and
enable Australia to declare their
first innings closed at 542 for
Sri Lanka were 30-0 in re-
ply when bad light stopped
play early at Bellerive Oval with
Marvan Atapattu unbeaten on
18 and Michaef Vandort on 12.
The openers had no hesita-
tion in accepting an offer to go
off early after surviving a hos-
tile 12-over spell from
Australia's pacemen but will
need a strong batting perfor-
mance today to avoid another
heavy loss following their in-
nings defeat in last week's first
Test in Brisbane.
Sri Lanka captured the
wickets of Mike Hussey and
Michael Clarke after lunch
but were unable to put a halt
on Australia's relentless run
feast as Gilchrist and Andrew
Symonds went on the ram-
Hussey departed for 132
when he was trapped leg-before-
wicket by Dilhara Fernando
then Clarke fell for 71 when he
was caught by wicketkeeper
Prasanna Jayawardene off Lasith

Hussey and Clarke had
added 125 for the fourth wicket
but their dismissals did little to

Gilchrist signalled his inten-
tions when he smacked Malinga
over the miid-wicket fence for
his first six before tea but saved
his best for Muralitharan, who
needs just six more wickets to
break Shane Warne's world
record of 708 Test dismissals
but is now unlikely to achieve
the feat in Australia.
Gilchrist's second six off
Muralitharan sailed over the
Bellerive Oval gates and into
a nearby street, forcing the
umpires to call for a replace-
ment ball.
Sri Lanka's bowlers
struggled against the Australian
batsmen and had to cope with-
out paccman Farveez
Maharoof, who suffered a stress
fracture in his foot on the open-
ing day.
Hussey also smashed
Muralitharan for six before
lunch to bring up his 100 part-
nership with Clarke before the
pair fell in quick succession af-
ter the first break, allowing

quick runs and set up the decla-

New WADA boss wants

greater role for governments

By Karolos Grohmann

MADRID, Spain (Reuters) -
The newly-elected chief of
the World Anti-Doping
Agency (WADA), Australian
John Fahey, pledged yester-
day to forge stronger ties with
governments in a bid to en-
force a new doping code and
crack down more effectively
on cheats.
Minutes after winning a
vote which European govern-
ments tried to block and then
abstained from, Fahey, elected
for a three-year term starting on
January 1, said all the pre-elec-
tion wrangling was now a thing
of the past.
Fahey won all but four
votes all abstentions from
Europe and said the time
had come for governments to
play a greater role in fight-
ing doping in sport.
"I do not underestimate
the task. I come from
government and I hope to bring

governments even more to the
table than in the past," Fahey,
a former Australian finance
minister, told reporters as he
sat next to outgoing president
Dick Pound.
Only 71 of 191 countries
have adopted WADA's anti-
doping code through the rati-
fication of a UNESCO con-
"I believe there is a need
to ensure that there is greater
government commitment. Each
of the Europeans in the room
came to me (after the vote) and
indicated they look forward to
working with me," Fahey
His appointment ended
weeks of turbulent negotiations
which upset European stake-
holders and dented WADA's
The European public au-
thorities had opposed Fahey
and then abstained after ask-
ing Pound to postpone the
vote for six months until a

consensus candidate could be
found, a request Pound re-
jected minutes before the

least by Oceania and the Ameri-
cas, joined the race after WADA

Lamour was picked by Euro-
pean governments as their
choice to succeed Pound, a Ca-
nadian lawyer who has held the
post for eight years.
Shortly afterwards though,

Lamour withdrew unexpectedly,
accusing WADA of being inef-
fective and surprising his back-
ers who scrambled to find an-
other candidate.
A last-ditch effort to get
former French sports minister
Guy Drut to stand as a consen-
sus candidate for interim presi-
dent failed hours before the vote.

Pound said he understood
the Europeans' frustration after
Lamour pulled out, and their
consequent abstention.
"I would have preferred a
unanimous vote but I can under-
stand why (they abstained)." he
The International Olympic
Committee (IOC) said it wel-
comed Fahey's appointment
and looked forward to working
with him.
Swedish IOC member Arne
Ljungqvist was elected WADA
Earlier, WADA had offi-

cially adopted its new code
which Fahec called valuable,
new "weaponry".
The code foresees
tougher bans for first-time
offenders, doubling suspen-
sions from two to four years,
depending on the case.
Aggravating circumstances
include being part of a large
doping scheme, taking drugs for
a long period of time, taking a
cocktail of banned substances or
using drugs that remain in the
body for years.
However, it also offers re-
duced bans for athletes offering
information on drugs in the form
of plea bargains.
The maximum reduction in
these cases though would not
exceed three-quarters of the ban,
WADA said.
More leniency is given to
athletes who have taken a
banned substance without in-
tent to enhance their sporting
performance, who could avoid
sanctions altogether.

games and in the last few
years it's been the way I've

rate and I've been playing a lot
more positively.

cism for not stepping up a

Kallis thought the pitch
would deteriorate, which he said
could be to the advantage of the
home side.
"If we can get 200 ahead it's
going to put a lot of pressure on
New Zealand because on day
four and five I think the bounce
will get really uneven."
Kallis was dismissed five
balls after tea when debutant
fast bowler Mark Gillespie
trapped him in front to earn his
maiden Test wicket.
Gillespie's strike also
ended a stand of 220 between
Kallis and Hashim Amla, who
was 89 not out at the close.
"To break that partnership
was just as special as to get my
first wicket," Gillespie said.
South Africa lead the two-
match series 1-0.

The feature match which
began at a moderate pace even-
tually picked up momentum af-
ter the midway point, with both
teams launching numerous at-
tacks in an effort to establish a
lead, but it was the eventual
winners who found the back of
their opponents' net from a free
kick. which was played wide.
and the incoming aerial cross
from the right flank found an
unmarked Lindie who found his
target from close up.
With a slim 1-0 lead at half-
time in their favour, Camptown
continued in attacking mode in
the second session which should
have resulted in a larger margin
of victory but in two one-on-
one instances within the run of
play. the victors' strikers were
off target.
In the first instance. Troy
Prescod's shot went wide while
a long range effort from Tigers'
Phillip Rowley that was pow-
erfully struck was denied by the
crossbar, in addition to a few
headers that went agonisingly

close an area that the Tigers
should have fully exploited since
their aerial crosses from the
flanks proved problematic for
their opponents.
After their final match,
Camptown have accumulated
18 points from 14 matches with
five victories, three draws and
six losses and currently occupy
the fourth spot in the points
The Tigers, with one match

hearing will determine the out-
come of the abandoned Premier

goalless first half, Ordel

ADAM Gilchrist slog-sweeps Muttiah Muralitharan for the
100th six of his career, in Hobart. (Yahoo Sport)

By Julian Linden
HOBART, Australia (Reuters) Adam Gilchrist has appealed
to the Australian public to help him find the ball he smashed
his 100th Test six with.
The Australian became the first player to strike 100 Test sixes
when he belted Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan over the
fence during the second Test at Bellerive Oval yesterday.
The only problem was that Gilchrist hit the ball so far that it
sailed outside the ground and into a nearby street and has not been
found since.
The umpires were forced to use a replacement ball for the rest
of the Australian innings but Gilchrist later appealed to anyone who;
may have found the ball to return it to him.
"I'm not a massive collector of memorabilia but I think
there's probably a few little bits and pieces every cricketer has
stashed away that means something to him and that's a unique
little item and I'd love to get it back," Gilchrist told a news
"There aren't many things that you do in life that you're the
only person ever to have done it, so with that in mind it would be
nice to have the ball that notched that hundred.
"It's not a milestone you ever set out to achieve but it's defi-
nitely unique."
Gilchrist, who already holds the world record for the most
Test sixes, went into the match with 97 maximums to his name

Ladies, I have to
tell you this -
The search for
Mr Right is so
over. I am fed up
of women telling me that
they are searching and
searching for that special
person in their lives and
spend most of the time
analysing every man, to see
if he fits the bill. But don't
you get it. Life does not
happen that way! The person
that is for you, might just be
sitting across from you at
work or in the gym. Lighten
up ladies its OK to be
single for a while. Whoever
he is, before he steps into
your life, get to know YOU
first. That way when the
right man comes along, you
will be prepared and at least
be a well rounded person in
all areas of your life and
have something to offer him!
What is it about the single
status that makes everyone feel
sorry for you? You only have
to flick through the magazines
to read the 'how to' advice on
relationships. With articles from

and 18'

'How to find Mr Right' 'How
to keep him interested for more
than three months' to 'how to
keep the love-rat' often imply
that if you don't have;ia man,
you clearly need the help to
find one! Once you reach a
certain age and still! ickini the
single status box on application
forms, you're automatically
labelled, 'past your sell-by date'
and should seriously consider
speed dating. While your 'busy-
body' family starts to Wonder
if you might actually be gay,
your attached, girlfriends also
pull out all the stops to pair you
off with an unsuspecting guy at
a "last minute" dinner party.
Needless to say, after your fair
share of relationships ending
before they've even begun you
begin to wonder what's the big
deal? What's wrong with being
single and proud?
Nowadays, the single life is
no longer seen as socially
uncomfortable anymore.
Research suggests' that
singletons are more career-
minded, successful and happy
people, proud of their 'status. In
her best-selling book, 'Living
Alone and Loving It', Barbara
Feldon states that the rise in
divorce rates, lifestyle changes
and decline of the nuclear
family, have left many women
opting to go it alone. This
includes buying property alone
to having babies. In fact, a survey
that questioned single people
revealed that having a career
was more important for their
well-being and boosted their
levels of confidence and self-
There's even a National
Singles Week held in the UK at
the end of September,
celebrating everything great
about being single. According to
their research, 48% of UK's
adult population are single and
by 2010 more than 40 % of
households will be occupied by
single people. There is also more
leisure outlets such as 'solo
holidays', a travel company
especially for the unattached,
who enjoy travelling alone.
So; forget the stereotypical

What is




part 1

Because the various races or citizens in Guyana
today possess a religious/cultural heritage in
herited from original homelands in Europe,
Africa, India, China, etc, and in the case of
Amerindians, the pre-Columbian Amiiericas, it
seems to have led to the assumption that they already also
possess a Guyanese identity, and this identity is simply the
grouping together of their various religious/cultural
So where does Guyana figure in all this, other than simply be-
ing a place, a landscape, where these diverse humans reside, own
homes, property, form governments worship, do business, make
love, raise families, etc? Can living in Guyana, or "living off" Guyana,
lead to anything new, such as a Guyanese identity?
Before we can even imagine the concept of a "Guyanese iden-
tity", there are questions we should ask ourselves. If it is assumed
that this diverse religious/cultural heritage already fullfils the func-
tion of a Guyanese identity, then there may be little interest, or
incentive, or desire to even entertain the thought of having a
Guyanese identity. And yet in most countries across the world
whose histories involved ancient invasions by other tribes, races,
cultures, also forms of slavery and forced labour, then later waves
of immigration over centuries, national identities have emerged to
enrich the entire world by offering exciting new examples of na-
tional cultures and identities derived from their antique original cul-
tural customs and values.
The persistent desire for and emergence of national identities, es-
pecially in North and South America, is rooted in the social necessity
of creating unity among the population of nations. However, this unity
of the Guyanese identity, which is our topic here, is not based simply
on tolerance of each other's diverse or different ethnic religious/cultural
heritages, but on the recognition and sharing of social and artistic val-
ues created from an acceptance, appreciation, and enjoyment of the
nation's total natural makeup, its landscapes, fauna and flora, colours,
including all skin colours, etc, to which is added visual structures, ar-
chitecture inherited from various ethnic religious/cultural bases, and

above all an open-minded critical way of looking at ourselves, rather
than cultivating prejudicial or jealous views and opinions of each other.
The Guyanese identity concerns such qualities and is much more than
simply owning an ID card! This is an attitude and modem cultural
approach not accepted enough, not practiced enough, and therefore
not popular enough in present day Guyana, and that is why the coin-
cept of "Guyanese identity" remains a vague, obscure concept, ignored
or even ignorantly attacked.
Yet, despite all the appreciation today's Guyanese citizens show
for each other's original ethnic religious/cultural heritages ( Afro-
Guyanese crowd the streets for Diwalli processions and appreci-
ate the religious and moral guidance the festival symbolizes; Indo-
Guyanese hit the streets and celebrate Mashramani,which is an
Amerindian social concept, nevertheless dominated by Afro-
Guyanese dancers whose lascivious body movements are not vul-
gar in the least, but are modem progressions from an original Afri-
can ancestral base; and probably all Guyanese celebrate Christmas,
a custom brought here by Europeans, just like black pudding, past-
ries, black cake, hors d'oeuvres, aerated beverages etc, introduced
by Flemish, Dutch, French, English, and Portuguese colonials and
immigrants ) all of which seems to have little effect on reducing
the suspicions, the racial restrictions, the favouritism shown to ra-
cial k'n in the field of employment and romantic involvements. Why
is this? Well, obviously if believing in one's own religious/cultural
heritage and customs is sufficient for one's life in a Guyana filled
with diverse cultures etc, and if such diverse cultures already de-
fine the Guyanese identity, why should anyone from any of these
categories feel compelled to go beyond mere public enjoyment of
each other's "cultures" and customs'? What they do is simply re-
treat to their self-satisfied heritages once again. They keep going
up and down, marking time on one spot. They do not progress.
Whereas the Guyanese identity is based on a progression where
social intercourse with any Guyanese citizen, or even foreigner
within Guyana, is free to develop or progress into social and per-
sonal relationships beyond the confined borders of their diverse re-
ligious/cultural heritages.
How then would creating a Guyanese identity differ from all

such confinement First of all, before expanding on the concept of
Guyanese identity, we should understand clearly that the Guyanese
identity is not based on mere racial/sexual union. Indigenous, Afro,
Indo, Asian ,European ,mixed race Guyanese etc, should not think
that the concept of Guyanese identity is based on racial mixing;
there is no racial recipe for it. No one should feel compelled to give
their bodies out of sympathy, guilt, or fear about appearing preju-
diced. Romantic relationships between diverse Guyanese should re-
main based on simple personal attraction; but a genuine personal
attraction, free of prejudicial preferences or quests for "riches". To
base one's personal or intimate relationships on mere material re-
wards is unsound.
As speculative as it may sound, the pursuit of a generalized
Guyanese identity offers the prospect of less stress, anger, and
disturbance in all our public and personal relationships, because we
will no longer focus on cultivating our differences, our dissimilari-
ties, but seek out and identify our similarities, based on communal
efforts to attain social and personal pleasures beneficial to Guyanese
life on the whole, rather than only to our own little inherited reli-
gious/cultural/commercial circles.
The concept of a Guyanese identity is therefore based on
a progression from our various ethnic and cultural histories
inherited from our fore-parents towards the new local iden-
tity possible from reaping the combined skills and pleasures
of these diverse histories. So far, the intellectual and creative
energies which could be applied to the development of a
Guyanese identity (in all aspects: artistic, commercial,
political,etc), are used instead to excessively towards exhum-
ing the stink and waste of abuses which occurred during
Guyana's colonial past, and the recent self-obsessed ethnic
revivals and divisions which became popular since .Indepen-
dence. Such backward looking obsessions may help to write
numerous sociological reports and theses, but they continu-
ally miss the constructive and exciting prospects of building
positive springboards into a practical and therefore useful and
productive future with a gregarious cosmopolitan modern
Guyanese identity.

and all those guys. On one side,
the lack of consistency may be
the problem; the genuine love of
it, the reasons why you are do-
ing it and not just for the dollar.
But you must recognize that
this is part of your cultural de-
velopment if you are to grow as
a society. So on one hand, the-
artist has to have this total com-
mitment, on the other hand he
has to get the support of the
community via the government
and that is not always forth-
coming in its totality. And that
sometimes makes us feel under-
appreciated especially when our
commitment is larger than what
we should receive.
PP Perhaps you could
work on that area to get govern-
ment to do more.

IV I think first of all rec-
ognition of our artists is very
important. Guys like Ron and
Margaret should be recognized
as national heroes for their con-
tribution in Guyana. Howard
Lorrimer, and others like Henry
Rodney who are consistently
working at their craft.
PP Andre Subryan.
IV Certainly Andre.....
PP Going back to the
start of your career to forma-
tive days at Saints, to the City
Council's cultural project, to
Theatre Guild: what you had to
offer to the powers that be in
theatre that induced their en-
couragement and support?
IV It is more likely the
crowds I pull, especially at the
National Cultural Centre...if
something is not that really
good, you wouldn't get that
support. Of course the literary
critic will say what they have
to say. But we recognized that
this was theatre for the public
and not just the elite audience,
but for a general audience. So we
were able to bring people out
from every area of Georgetown
and even further; we went to
Berbice and everywhere we
went we had good support. And
I think that somewhat opened
the eyes of people that these

guys were doing something good
and I was certainly doing some-
thing good. That's how I was
offered the job at the City
Council by then Mayor Mavis
Benn. Sitting in the Council
with all the elders was quite in-.
timidating at times, but I was
able to deliver there as well be-
cause I had good support from
the workers of the City Coun-
cil at the time. Actors like
Michael Balkaran, I don't know
if he is still acting, I hope so,
he was in the first Link Show
with Ron. Michael was also
from the City Council and got
his full support.
PP You mentioned tak-
ing plays to New Amsterdam.
That is a dimension missing
in the arts where everything
seems to be focused on
Georgetown, centralised in
Georgetown. Producers com-
plain how difficult it is to
take plays out of Georgetown
without proper lighting, stage
and other props. But you

THE Caribbean region's
most celebrated cruising
boat of the 1960s/1970s pe-
riod, the 12 metre long
plywood ketch HUMMING
BIRD II, is being restored
in Port of Spain.
Built on the shores of the
Gulf of Paria by Trinidadians
Harold La Borde and his wife
Kwailan in 1965, it should be
ready for public viewing to lo-
cals in the twin island republic
and visitors early next year.
Their historic circumnavi-
gation of the world, the first
by Caribbean people in such
a home built craft, was from
1969 to 1973. There had
been an appreciative welcome
back home at the
Chaguaramas docks by the
then Prime Minister Dr.Eric
Williams (the La Bordes
were awarded the republic's
top award Trinity Cross for
their achievement) and an ap-
preciative crowd.
After being given to the
Coast Guard for sail training
and used for that purpose for
a while, the boat was then
stored in the Trinidad
Sailing Association yard for
several years. The harsh
elements, together with the

local "corbeaux" (scavenging
birds) who made it their roost,
took its toll. In time, the
plywood hard chiner became
"completely rotten" as
Harold told Compass last
June in an interview.
In 2005, with the assistance
of the then Trinidadian govern-
ment and the personal involve-
ment of Minister of Culture
Hon.Joan Yuille-Williams, the
restoration project started. A
young shipwright, Sherwin
Bobette, was hired to work on
it at the Museum on the South
Quay in the downtown
Trinidadian capital.
The boat was designed by
American John B. Clarke.
Harold said he first read
about it in an issue of Yachting
magazine and sent away for the
The restoration is faithful to
the original design, including all
interior and exterior fittings.
Some allowances would be made
for the public inspection pro-
cess when it is finally put on
display. It is hoped that a sec-
retariat would be establsihed to
provide visitors, including school
children, with a video presenta-
tion of the building of the boat
and the historic voyage.
The La Bordes had ear-
lier built a smaller plywood

ketch, the 7 metre long
they sailed to England with
countryman Kelvin Wong
Chong in 1960.
After they gave away
started on an even larger boat.
This was the round bottom
a ketch. It is made of local
teak. It carried the La Bordes
and their two young sons
Pierre and Andre on another
circumnavigation from 1984
to 1986.
"WE've kept this one the
longest," says Harold as he lov-
ingly makes sure all the ropes
are properly coiled in the cock-
pit at the Humming Bird Ma-
rina in Chaguaramas which he
recently sold.

IN 1954, British Guiana
High Court judge Roland
Phillips, sitting as a Cham-
ber Judge of the West Indian
Court of Appeal to hear an
application from a divorced
woman asking for alimony
pendente lite (maintenance
pending trial) from her hus-
band, refused the application.-
At the conclusion of di-
vorce proceedings between hus-
band and wife in the matter
of Tiwari and Tiwari, Mrs.
Tiwari, the respondent,
lodged an appeal to the West
Indian Court of Appeal, ask-
ing for alimony pendente lite.
But, as the West Indian
Court of Appeal' was not sit-
ting in the colony, the peti-
tion was heard by a judge of
the Supreme Court of Brit-
ish Guiana, Mr. Justice
Roland Phillips.
Counsel for the husband
took preliminary objection as
to jurisdiction and submitted
that a petition' for alimony
pendente lite was not an in-
terlocutory application as
envisaged by sub-section (g) of
section 23 (1) of the West In-
dian Court of Appeal Rules
The judge held that Peti-
".ions for alimony pendente lite
--are matters to be preferred in the
Supreme Court of British
Guiana in the first instance, and
are not cognisable before the
West Indian Court of Appeal

until they reach that court by
way of appeal.

Well boys and girls you have enjoyed working addition and subtraction of fractions. We
will now move on to Multiplication of fractions.
Today we are going to multiply a whole number by a fraction.

Let's look carefully at this number line

(d) 4/5-5/15
(e) 5/12 1/8
(f) 9/10 2/5

9 x 4/6

= 6 ans

eg.4x 11/2
= 12/2

= 5/3 x 5/4
= 21/12

Observe the same example in this way
9 x 4/6

(a)How many pupils paid for the concert?
(b)How many pupils did not pay?

2. A box has 100 pencils. 1/5 of the pencils are black; 2/5 of the pencils are red and the
remainder blue.

How many pencils are blue?

3. 4 girls each ate 1/6 of a cake. What part of the cake did they eat altogether?
4. If I give 1/7 of my marbles to each of 3 boys. What fractions of my marbles have I

We are going to examine a new term in Mathematics. That is Reciprocal.

Reciprocal is an expression so related to another that their product is 1 (one)

(BBC News) You know you
are getting close to La Oroya
when the already sparse veg-
etation on the mountainside
gets thinner and eventually
disappears leaving bare rock.
On arriving at this high alti-
tude town you can see it is
dominated by a huge chimney.
at 167m (547ft) believed to be
one of the world's tallest.
For. an unremarkable place,
La Oroya has another superla-
tive attached to its name.
The Blacksmith Institute, a
US-based environmental think
tank, has ranked it as one of the
top 10 most polluted places in
the world for the last two years.
La Oroya. home to more
than 30.000 people, is a com-
pany town and many residents
say nothing about the pollution
for fear of losing their jobs.
One exception is Miguel
Curi. who paid little attention
to the multi-metal smelter until
his infant daughter had a blood

The results showed she had
three-and-a-half times more lead
in her blood than is safe accord-

daughter and I arrived at the un-
welcome surprise that it was the
fumes from the Doe Run plant
which had affected not only my
daughter but thousands of chil-

That was two years ago.
Since then Mr Curi, who
heads the La Oroya health
movement, has met hundreds
of children with blood lead
levels up to six times the safe
Three years ago the Peru-

vian health ministry (MINSA)
found that 99.9% of children in
La Oroya under the age of
seven had blood lead levels far
above safe norms.
And a recent study of
newborn babies by neurologist
Dr Hugo Villa showed a quar-
ter of those tested had danger-
ously high lead levels in their
"This means that pregnant
mothers here in La Oroya are
also contaminated and transmit
the lead through the placenta
to the newborn," said Dr Villa
who has worked in La Oroya
for 28 years.
"It shows that this
people's health is caught in a
very dramatic vicious circle and
frankly the company are doing
very little to resolve it."
The smelter was already
75 years old when the Peruvian
state sold it in 1997 to the US-
based Doc Run Corporation as
part of a privatization drive, on

the condition that emissions
were cut.
Doe Run says at the time
the plant was completely un-
regulated as Peru had only
just begun conforming to in-

The corporation says it has
invested money to modernise the
plant and curb emissions.

creased in the last decade, in
some cases substantially.
Doe Run spokesman Victor
Andres Belaunde said they did
not want to deny nor downplay
the situation in La Oroya but
that information was out of date.
"We are extremely concerned
by all issues that relate to blood
lead levels and all the issues that
relate to the environment at La

Aids policy

(BBC News) Bargaining with pharmaceutical firms to bring
down the price of Aids drugs and producing cheap generic
versions has saved Brazil $1bn, a study has shown.
Infection rates in the Latin American country have been kept
at a similar level to the US, the report finds.
And more than 180,000 Brazilians have access to Aids treat-
Brazil's achievement is described as "remarkable", in the
study published by researchers at the Harvard School of Pub-
lic Health in the United States.
Brazil's policy for dealing with HIV and Aids has long been
widely admired for its commitment to effective treatment com-
bined with an aggressive promotion of the safe sex message.
In 1996 it became the first developing country to commit
to providing free and universal access to Aids drugs.
Now a study published in the Public Library of Sci-
ence journal by researchers from the Harvard School of
Public Health suggests the policy has saved Brazil around
$lbn between 2001 and 2005.
By threatening to produce cheaper generic versions of ex-
isting drugs, the government has repeatedly persuaded comnpa-
nies to reduce their prices.
Earlier this year Brazil hrokic lic patent on the Aids dru1
Efavirenz and decided to imipoit a cheaper version from India.
Drugs companies have warned that action like this v. uid
only discourage them from carrying out the expensive research,
needed to improve the drugs required to treat HIV.
Brazil says the decision was taken in the public interest,
which is why it also produces generic versions of eight drugs
that do not have patents.
To some extent the policy has been a victim of its own success,
with the new research suggesting dhug costs rose rapidly as treatment
was provided to more people who were also living longer.
Researchers also say other developing countries are
now proving more successful in producing cheaper generic
Aids drugs and Brazil, which once led the way with this
approach, needs to be more aggressive.

A Memorandum of Un-

(GMTCS) in August 2003.

Did you know
the decline of
sea turtles
began during
the 1960s,
when predominantly female
turtles were targets for
hunters principally for their
eggs and meat? Additionally,
many turtles were entangled
in fishing nets. These are
the two main threats which
led to the action for the
protection of sea turtles in
Why Protect
Marine Turtles?
Guyana has four of the
world's eight species of ma-

rine turtles, namely: Leath-
erback (Dermochelys
coriacea), Olive Ridley
(Lepidochelys olivacea),
Green (Chelonia mydas) and
the Hawksbill
(Eretmochelys imbricata).
Sea turtles should be
protected because they have
important roles in the ma-
rine ecosystem. For ex-
ample, the majestic Leath-
erback which is the largest
of all the marine turtles
(reaches lengths to 180 cm
and weighs approximately
500 kg) controls the over-
abundance of jellyfish
which can reduce fish popu-
lations. Jellyfish feed on
fish larvae. An over-abun-

dance of jelly fish can cause
a decline in the population
of commercially important
fish. Leatherbacks act as in-
dicators of high fish popula-
tions. Green turtles, as their
name suggest, are greenish-
yellow in colour. These
turtles would feed on
seagrasses and algae. After
digestion and excretion, the
Green turtles would provide
nutrients to many species of
plants and animals. Both the
Olive Ridley and Hawksbill
turtles feed on and control
populations of invertebrates.
Consequently, studies of
turtle populations and their
activities are therefore im-
portant as they provide in-
formation on fish stocks and

Today we will look at Guyana and its Continental Neighbours
Guyana is found on the mainland of the continent of South America. It is the only English speak-
ing country in South America
Can you remember what is a continent?

In this continent there are thirteen countries.
Argentina Ecuador
French Guiana
Bolivia Guyana
Brazil Paraguay
Chile Colombia


Some of these countries are located near Guyana. An International boundary separates one coun-
try from another. The countries which share boundaries with Guyana are called our Immediate Con-
tinental Neighbours.
Our immediate continental to, the east is Suriname.
Venezuela is found North West of Guyana
Brazil is South-South West

Natural Regions of Guyana

A natural region is an area which has similar features such as soil, build of land, plants or vegeta-
tion and climate.

If you live on the coast and you have made trips to Timehri International Airport you would have
noticed many differences between the area you live and the area you have visited soil, build of land,
vegetation and climate.

Guyana has four Natural regions
The Low Coastal Plain
The Hilly Sand and Clay Area
The Highland Region
The Interior Savannahs

Currency Language

Brazil Brasilia real Portuguese
Suriname Paramaribo guilder Dutch
Venezuela Caracas bolivar Spanish
Suriname is separated by Guyana by the Corentyne River
Venezuela is separated from Guyana by the Amakura and Wenamu Rivers.
Brazil by the Takatu River

Study the map of South America. Count the number of countries. Try to locate Guyana.

Low Coastal Plain
The Low Coastal Plain is located near, the Atlantic Occan.It stretches from Point Playa to the
Corentyne River. It is 2-4metres below '.et tel-
To keep the tide out concrete sea walls, dams and groynes have been built along the coastline.
Most of Guyana's population lives on lhe Low Coastal Plain earning a living on the sugar'estates
rice fields

in towns and villages where they are employed as Public Servants.

Types of soil on the Coastal Plain

I'casse is soft and spongy. Frunils and vegetables grow well on this soil.
Silly clay rice and sugar

We will now discuss the Fish.
Hope you like eating fish because they are rich in proteins and are easily digested.

Compile a list of all the fishes that you know.
Compare your list with a friend.
Fishes are aquatic (they live in water) and can be seen in various colours, shapes
and sizes.

Basically there are three classes of fish.
(i) The Bony Fish: they have skeletons made of bones and this is the most
numerous group eg. Snapper, Butterfish.

Have you ever seen a frog or toad catches it's food?

Observe the diagram how the toad catches it's food.

(ii) The Cartilaginous Fish: their skeleton is made of cartilage which is not as
hard as bone, eg. Shark, Sting ray, Dog fish.

(iii) The Jawless fish: these do not have a true jaw but a sucker like mouth and

Sea Turtle Conservation ...

Guyana, called Shell Beach and "managing this ecosystem to pro-
mote the conservation and sustainable utilization of the resources
of the area for the benefit of all stakeholders" (Source- Guyana
Marine Turtle Conservation Society "WHO WE ARE").
This collaboration provides for data collection by the GMTCS
and joint analysis of this data by the EPA. The objectives of the
data analysis are to compare the activities and the number of
hatchlings produced by each species of turtle throughout the nest-
ing season (March-August annually); which will aid conservation
efforts. Due to constant monitoring of Shell Beach by the Sea Turtle
Project under the GMTCS, in the recent past it was noticed that
the greatest number of turtles was observed in 2005 and the high-
est number of nests was seen in 2004.The month of )une showed
the peak of the seasons, where the most of turtles are encountered
and the greatest number of nests as well.
It is our hope that with continued monitoring of the beach
by the GMTCS, sea turtles will continue to nest at the beach.
With constant research and monitoring, there should be a de-
cline in poaching and slaughter of adult females. The EPA of
Guyana and GMTCS will continue to work closely to analyze
data from the nesting beaches and to share information for
decision-making and management of marine turtles in Guyana
and around the world.

I -



Aries -- Today your imagination, dreams and fantasies will provide other
people with entertainment ... after your perform for these folks, you should
reach out to them for insight. You've been in a thick fog about how you feel
about someone else, and a conversation with a close mutual friend will go a
long way toward clearing up any confusion. Plus, you are likely to pick up on
facts that you didn't quite pick up on before. You'll know what to say to the
source of confusion by the end of the day.

Taurus -- Your life has been a series of compromises and negotiations, each
of which has strengthened your bonds with friends, family and partners. But
not everyone feels that compromises enrich their life -- as you will see all too
clearly today. Someone with a deep, dark selfish streak comes into your life.
They are in no mood to share, back down, or see your point of view. In their
opinion, it's their way or the highway. You should be prepared to hit the road.

Gemini -- All your forward momentum is starting to slow down a bit, which is
both a positive and a negative thing. On the one hand, this time out will fi-
nally give you a chance to take in the interesting view you've been missing
out on for so long. But on the other hand, this pause means that you are
going to have wait even longer for the changes you've been dreaming about.
Conserve your energy and be more patient. Be confident that you will experi-
ence what you deserve to soon enough.

Cancer -- This day may require a lot of organization, so do yourself a favor
and start the day with a thorough evaluation of what needs to be done and
how you are going to go about doing it. Making a plan doesn't necessarily
have to kill any chance of spontaneity, by the way -- it just lays out a nice
road map for you to follow. Feel free to go off the beaten path here and there.
Conserve all that good energy and do not get too ambitious about your plans.
Keep it simple and pace yourself!

Leo -- Your generosity is at odds with your wallet, and it might be time to get
creative with a gift idea. Think about what you can do for someone rather
than what you can give them. New ideas should pop into your head by the
end of the day, so do not worry about falling short when it comes time to
show them how much you care about them. Express your feelings in a poem
and create a card that features more genuine emotion ihan anything from a
store could.

Virgo -- You will be graced with a huge dose of beaumiul, magnetic energy
today. In a crowd, you will be able to draw people aroui... you with your sup-
portive ways. People will feel especially safe and confi.tent around you, and
will be ready to divulge some critical information that others would give their
eye teeth for. This is not a day to use your charms to ,'et something out of
someone. Rather, it is a day to just be yourself, and let people open up when
they want and how they want.

Libra -- You have only just scratched the surface on :: new endeavor. Keep
digging today and you could uncover the whole beautiful thing (at any rate,
you should make amazing progress). Acting in the moment is important to-
day -- spontaneous energy will feed new ideas and encourage everything to
keep going in the right direction. If you've been waiting for a day to exhale,
it's today. You even have permission to get excited. Th is going to happen!

Scorpio -- Being interested in the lives of rock stars ai;'
some people, but today you should, follow your urge
down the glossy magazine, and find something of sub
esty and reality are fascinating to you right now, s('
day to just take a walk around your neighborhood and
ing. Seeing the poetry and beauty of average people
inspire you as you live yours.

Sagittarius -- If you think playing 'hard to get' is goi ,
of your eye,' think again. There is far too much going
twice someone who doesn't seem to notice them. If x
this person's eye, you either have to wait until their li
the first move and let them know you'd like them to i
in mind that you might be getting a lot busier very sc
good time to. get something new started?

Capricorn If you think playing 'hard to get' is goiP
of your eye, think again. There is far too much goin;:
tice someone who doesn't seem to notice them. If yv
this person's eye, you either have to wait until their li;
the first move and let them know you'd like them to i:

Aquarius -- When you are building something, some- you get so focused
on the nuts and bolts that you forget to step back arn k at your progress.

Hello students,
Today we'll skip along to help you improve your con-
centration. At first you have to recognize your lack of
concentration, and then resolve to mend it as quickly
and effectively as possible. It has been found that to
improve concentration is nearly often either a matter of
using more effective study approaches or a personal
concern which is interfering with your study. Check
where you belong. In the latter case just talking to a
friend, a relative, a teacher, doctor or counsellor can be
very useful. Do enjoy this issue.
* Love you.

With his eyes wet, so that the edges of things were
blurred, Portia was truly like her mother. Years ago Daisy
had walked like that around the kitchen, silent and occu-
pied. Daisy was not black as he was, her skin had been
like the beautiful colour of dark honey. She was always
very quiet and gentle. But beneath that soft gentleness
there was something stubborn in her, and no matter how
conscientiously he studied it all out, he could not under-
stand the gentle stubbornness of his wife.
He would exhort her and he would tell her all that
was in his heart and still she was gentle. And still she
would not listen to him but would go on her own way.
Then later there were Hamilton and Karl Marx and
William and Portia. And this feel of real true purpose
for them was so strong that he knew exactly how each
thing should be with them. Hamilton would be a great
scientist and Karl Marx a teacher of the Negro race
and William a lawyer to fight against injustice and Portia
a doctor for women and children.
And when they were even babies he would tell them
of the yoke they must thrust from their shoulders the
yolk of submission and slothfulness. And when they
were a little older he would impress upon them that there
was no God, but that their lives were holy and for each
one of them there was this real true purpose. He would
tell it to them over and over, and they would sit together
far away from him and look with their big Negro-chil-
dren eyes at their mother. And Daisy would sit with-
out listening, gentle and stubborn....
Then one night he found that Daisy had pierced holes
in little Portia's ears for ear-rings. And another time a
kewpie doll with feather skirts was on the mantelpiece
when he came home, and Daisy was gentle and hard
and would not put it away. He knew, too, that daisy
was teaching the children the cult of meekness. She
told them about hell and heaven. Also she convinced
them of ghosts and of haunted places. Daisy went to
church every Sunday and she talked sorrowfully to the
preacher of her own husband. And with her stubborn-
ness she always took the children to the church, too,
and they listened.
(Taken from The Heart is A Lonely Hunter by
Carson McCullers)

What to Do
1. Read the extract until you think you have under-
stood it all. Then draw up a table where you set up
your own number of columns with headings, and a num-
ber of rows. Number the boxes in the table to the or-
der in which the pockets of information are mentioned
in the text. Write out information including skin colour,
personality, beliefs, dreams, and life style. This effort
will help you find the main information in a text.
2. Write your own composition aboul a family with
adaptations from the text.

The Poem

Come; let us also lift our hands,
We who do not remember the custom of prayer,
We who, except for the burning fire of love,
Do not remember any idol, any god.
Come; let us present a petition that Life, our be-
Will pour tomorrow's sweetness into today's poison;
That for those who have not strength for the bur-
den of the days,
May it make night and day weigh light on their eye-
For those whose eyes have not strength for seeing
the face of dawn,
May it light some candle in their nights;
For those for whose steps there is no assistance of
any road,
May it make some road luminous to their sight;
To those whose religion is pursuit of lying and hy-
May there come capacity to shake off the murderer's
The hidden secret of love is the fevered soul, with
Let us today make a covenant, and let its fever be
The word of Truth, which in the heart like a thorn,
Let us today accept, and the anguish be wiped out.
(Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Pakistan Translated by V.

What to Do
1. Tell in your own words what the poem is all about.
2. Discuss the poem with a friend, and then com-
pare the findings with your own effort at responding to
Question 1.

Looking at Writing
It was a May 1990 news conference on insomnia
and sleep deprivation that finally did it. For years
Anastasia Toufexis, health and behaviour editor at Time
magazine, had been pushing for a cover story on sleep
a hot topic in the early 1980s that seemed to cool dur-
ing the middle of the decade.
In the late 1980s, though, reports came out that in-
dicated the potential for human error increases when
the factor of sleep deprivation is added to the equation.
Analyses indicated that when people work horrendous
hours, lack of sleep can affect all aspects of their lives,
including performance on the job and at school.
During the same period, Toufexis began to see more
studies on sleep, including figures showing that, next to
alcohol, lack of sleep was a major factor in road acci-
. dents. Sleep had also become a personal issue for
Toufexis and many others. Everywhere Toufexis turned
she heard friends and colleagues even herself moan-
ing about how groggy they were. "I was keeping lousy
hours because of our work schedule," Toufexis said. "I
wondered, after thirteen years at Time, wasn't a lack
of sleep taking a toll on me?"
It was the news conference on sleep that clinched
things, though. Among the top national sleep research-
ers who spoke at the New York City conference was
Dr. William Dement, director of the sleep centre at
Stanford University. Dement synthesized the growing
body of research and everyday complaints into a dis-
turbing statement: Sleep deprivation had become a pub-
lic health hazard.
After hearing Dement's remarks, Toufexis was con-
vinced that the time had come for a "big act" a Time
cover story on sleep.

What to Do

Sie hatten sich beide so
herzlich lieb,
Spitzbubin war sie, er war

ein Dieb.
They loved each other
beyond belief -
She was a strumpet, he was

a thief.
HEINRICH HEINE (1797-1856) Neue Gedichte
(18440), Romanzen 1 TEin Weib' Trans. Louis
Untermeyer (1983)

Note how the sentences in the passage vary in
structure and in length. In addition to simple sentences,
there are complex ones.
Simple sentence Sleep had also become a personal
issue for Toufexis and many others.
Complex sentence Analyses indicated that when
people work horrendous hours, lack of sleep can affect
all aspects of their lives, including performance on the
job and at school.

Recognise Sentence Types.
A complex sentence has one main clause and one
or more subordinate clauses.
Complex Sentence:
I like Simon Sandy's paintings because they depict
real-life country characters.

Compound-Complex Sentence:
I view paintings that are done by James Wight and
I enjoy them.

Something to Do
1. Write a simple sentence or choose one in the pas-
2. Rework it making it a complex sentence.
3. Rework the simple sentence again to make it part
of a compound sentence.
4. Rework your compound sentence into a com-
pound-complex sentence.
5. Write a fifth related sentence, and then tell what
type of sentence it is.

Use Strong Verbs: A great writer, Thurston Knight,
wrote by concentrating on using strong verbs, not ad-
jectives, to create powerful descriptions such as this one:
The wind dropped, and clouds froze, and the sails
of a native canoe sagged.
Rewrite the following sentences, replacing weak
verbs with stronger ones that will paint a vivid picture.
(You may wish to make other changes.)
1. As the wind blew, the trees tossed.
2. A Canter that looked as if it were held together
with bandages and tape came in our direction.
3. Its driver wore an orange jumpsuit and matching
cap that caught the eye of everyone on the street.
4. When the truck got closer to us, the driver mo-
5. He spoke, but we couldn't hear what he said over
the racket his car was making.

THE "Tough" line of motorcycles launched by Continental Group of Compa-
nies recently is gaining fast hold on the market. The bikes, which have
stormed the market in Europe and North America, among other regions, are
on showcase at Continental's Industrial Site, Ruimveldt, Georgetown loca-
tion, as the company looks to build a showroom closer to the city commer-
cial hub.
The bikes come in nine models, and the company sees them as viable
alternatives at this time of rising oil prices. Customers get insurance, li-
cense, headgear and other benefits with every purchase.

defies animation label


The tagline for Disney's up-
coming "Enchanted" could
well be the motto for the lat-
est push in animation: "The
real world and the animated
world collide."
Not simply .colliding in the
slapstick tradition of 1988's
pioneering "Who Framed Roger
Rabbit?," but in the more fun-
damental sense of transforming
actors into animated characters
and vice versa.
The technique is seen in

Charles Schwab TV ads and Ri-
chard Linklater's bomb from last
year, "A Scanner Darkly." Peter
Jackson and Steven Spielberg
are collaborating to make three
comics-based movies blending
performances with computer
The lines have been ren-
dered so blurry that even
close observers of the indus-
try are asking what seems an
.easy question: What is. ani-

The director of "Roger Rab-
bit" has created a film that chal-
lenges whatever your answer-
may be. Robert Zemeckis'
"Beowulf" marries filmed actor
performances, animation and
special effects to create a
unique, semi-but-not-quite-real-
istic look that many identify
more with video games than
On Friday, it arrives in
IMAX and regular theaters na-
tionwide, accompanied by 3-D
glasses and the stamp of "ani-
mation" from the Academy of
Motion Picture Arts
and Sciences.
"Beowulf" qualifies
under Academy rules
revised several
months ago to require
"frame by frame"
work to compete
for an Animated Fea-
ture Oscar against the
likes of "Ratatouille"
-and the black-and-
white 2-D Iranian
film "Persepolis."
But because of
its hybrid nature,
few in the anima-
tion world expect
it'll actually be-
come one of the
three nominees.
That possibility
distresses traditional
"It's a little bit
odd when they're be-
ing put in the category compet-
ing in the same way for
awards," said Kevin Koch, a
longtime animator of
DreamWorks films like "Into the
Hedge" and "Shrek 2." "Some of'
us are kind of scratching our
heads a bit."
The intricate detail of
"Beowulf" is what sets it apart,
but it was created with a mo-
tion-capture proce, rinliie nil',,
similar to those used inirecog-:

nizably cartoonish movies.
Child actors overacted before a
green screen to form the basis
of last year's animated Oscar
nominee "Monster House," and
dancer Savion Glover supplied
the penguins' smooth moves for
wipner "Happy Feet."
There has been push-back.
"Ratatouille" director Brad Bird,
one of the most visible CG ani-
mation purists, is believed to be
behind a good-natured jab at
competitors following the cred-
its on that film's DVD. A car-
toon businessman is pictured
smiling proudly as text pro-
claims the movie
was made with "100
percent genuine ani-
mation" and "no mo-
tion capture or any
other performance
"If you ask the
average animator
what they think,
they'll tell you they
don't think motion
capture is anima-
tion," said Jimmy
Hayward, an anima-
tor on "Toy Story"
and other Pixar
Yet there have
never been bright
lines. The tech-
nique of
rotoscoping cap-'
turing human
movement in im-
ages and then tracing those
into the cartoon world was
invented by Max Fleisher in
the 1910s and even incorpo-
rated into key early Disney
cartoon features like 1937's
"Snow White and the Seven
So what's the problem with-
that? And who are today's ani-
mators to talk, anyway? They
long ago traded in pen and pa-
per for customized computer
. rendering programs.

"The essence of carica-
turing life is ah art form, and
it's its own art form," said
Hayward, who is now direct-
ing an animated Dr. Seuss
feature, "Horton Hears a
Who," due in, March. "Mo-
tion capture is outside of all
the craft that, goes into the
other parts of it."
"Most animators feel there's
a charm to see a drawing come
to life, or to see these computer
puppets come to life, because
they clearly exist in their own
universe," said David Silverman,
who directed the 2-D "The
Simpsons Movie." "When what
you're doing is trying to repli-
cate life 100 percent, you could
call it animation, but it's puz-
zling. I just sort of get puzzled."
It should be said: The cre-
ators of "Beowulf' don't call it
animation, nor do they intend to
replicate real life.
"It's a new art form that is
performance-based," producer
Steve Starkey said, echoing
comments Zemeckis made bout
his 2004 effort, "The Polar Ex-
press" (a performance-capture
movie that had many traditional

animators shuddering for its
characters' lifeless eyes and
stilted movements.)
"If one were to call it tra-
ditional animation, I think it
would be a disservice to the
brilliant animators of the
like that worked on 'Roger
Rabbit,' that brought those
characters to life. I also think
it would be a disservice to the
performers like Ray
'Winstone, whose perfor-
Snance lives on-screep."

50 Cent Asks: If

Britney Spears Can

Use The B-Word, Why

Can't I?
'I guess they have their rules that
apply individually to each artist,'.MC
says regarding. censorship.

By Shaheem Reid, with reporting by Jasmine Dotiwala

Obviously there's been so much controversy surrounding the
N-word lately, but when it comes to the B-word, 50 Cent senses
something of a double standard. The leader of the G-Unit, while
on tour in London, quipped with a grin recently that nobody

said anything about Britney Spears saying, "It's Britney, bitch,"
on the beginning of her first Blackout single, "Gimme More."
Let a rapper try to say that at the beginning of his song, chances
arc he might get censored.
"1 guess they have their rules that apply individually to
each artist separately: 'Oh no, he can't say that. 'cause he feels
like that about that person,' he said. "But it's not a rule that
applies to everybody else. Matter of fact, my next single. I'm
going to start it withh, 'It's Britney. bitch!' "
50 just I.j-.', ..1 his newest video, lor "1 Still Will." Don't
think he's too excited about having to change the title for broad-,
Scast purposes. . ,
"The real title is T'll Still Kill,' he said defiantly, pointing
,out of the track as it appears on his Curtis LP.,
'"It's' ,'. m,.eJ! rt 1Sidl Will' ,,r NI V." `he added. "It's amiazing-., .
