A NEIGHBOUR points at the remains of the house where Donna Headley lived with her
two children, who were found dead after the house was burnt down.

Police, so she called the fire ser-

It took about 45 minutes for
a fire tender from Ruimveldt in
Georgetown to get to the scene.
Once the flames had subsided,
neighbours discovered the hor-
ror of the dead woman and the
two children.
The woman lived with the
two children in the small house
at road end, Patentia, even
though she had a house at the
Parfaitt/Harmonie Housing
Scheme, which was built for her
by Habitat for Humanity.
The house belonged to the

lationship with, and she chose
to live there because Keon at-

Clinton had offered to coop-

gotiators did not want her to
talk with Eisenberg. Police said
there was no bomb.

one in need of help who sought

Turkish special forces
hit rebels in N.Iraq

ANKARA (Reuters) The
Turkish army carried out an
"intense intervention"
against Kurdish rebels in
northern Iraq on Saturday,
sending in special forces a day
after the cabinet authorized
a cross-border operation.
The action did not appear
to be a long-awaitec' major op-
eration by NATO member Tur-
key to destroy rebel bases.
A military official said around
100 special forces were sent into
northern Iraq to hit Kurdistan Work-
ers Party (PKK) rebels. The army
also sent between four and six heli-
copters to bomb a camp used by
the PKK.

The NTV news channel
said the army used helicopters
and artillery in a cross-border
operation for the first time in
many years. The military offi-
cial said the special forces had
returned to Turkish territory.
Earlier, a spokesman for
Iraqi Kurdish leader Massoud
Barzani said there had been no
incursion by Turkish troops
into the semi-autonomous
Kurdistan region of northern
Iraq. The U.S. military said it
was unaware of any incursion.
The Turkish army said on
its Web site that a group of 50
to 60 PKK rebels had been
spotted inside Iraq's borders.
"An intense intervention
was made on the group and it
was detected that the terrorist
group had suffered heavy casu-
alties," it said.
The army said it could
step up its "intervention" in
the region if this was needed.

Germany agreed in September to
delay sanctions against Iran un-
til the end of November, pend-
ing reports on an investigation by
the U.N. nuclear watchdog and a
European Union mediation effort.
The states decided that if
the reports by the International
Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
and EU mediator Javier Solana
did not show "a positive out-
come", they would agree on
more sanctions against Iran and
put it to a vote in the Council.
Solana said his last meeting
with Iran's top nuclear negotia-
tor on Friday was disappoint-
ing. The IAEA report found Iran
was cooperating, but not
proactively, making it likely that
Western states will resume their
push for sanctions.
In previous meetings Russia
and China, which have strong
trade ties with Iran, have agreed
only to the mildest measures
backed by Britain, the United
States and France.
Tehran denies Western
charges it is pursuing nuclear
weapons under the cover of a ci-
vilian atomic programme. It says
it only wants to generate elec-,
tricity but its failure to allay in-
ternational fears has prompted
two rounds of U.N. sanctions.
The Security Council has
demanded Iran suspend ura-
nium enrichment, a process
that can produce fuel for
power plants or, potentially,
nuclear weapons. Tehran has
refused and said it has a right
to the sensitive technology.

Panday to PM:

I'll not shut up

TRINIDAD EXPRESS: Opposition Leader Basdeo Panday has
sent a message to Prime Minister Patrick Manning: "I will
not shut up."
Panday's message comes in the wake of Manning's comments,
at Thursday's post-Cabinet press conference, that it would help a
lot if Panday would just shut his mouth.
"I could easily invoke the comments of the very distinguished
leader of Spain, when he was dealing with the President of Venezu-
ela ... he (Panday) ought to be told to shut up, I think that will help
all of us," Manning had told reporters.
Manning's call for Panday's silence was in response to Panday
accusing him being irresponsible and having no direction in which
to deal with crime, when Manning, upon his return from Uganda,
said he was baffled by. the upsurge in crime in the post election
period, and described it as "very unusual".
'The comments I made on the crime situation had nothing to
do with the leader of the Opposition," Manning said on Thursday,
in response to Panday's claims.
In a release yesterday, Panday stated: "As leader of the parlia-
mentary Opposition, elected representatives and citizen of this
democratic country, I will not shut up on the issues of crime, high
food prices, poor health care, inefficient education systems and other
matters that torment our nation."
Panday added that as long as "16-year-old schoolgirls continue
to show up raped and murdered after attending classes, in a com-
munity where basic infrastructure such as good roads, streetlights
and public transport are lacking, and where the village police sta-
tion has been shut down for ten years", he will continue to raise his
"I will not shut up and I advise my fellow law-abiding, civic-
minded citizens that they must also not be bullied by the Prime
Minister into shutting up," Panday said.

GUYANESE ARE quite familiar with the witty saying of
"pot telling kettle it bottom black". An amusing re-
minder may have come from Opposition Leader Rob-
ert Corbin, following his meeting on Friday with Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo to discuss appointments of a
Chancellor and a Chief Justice.
Regrettably, the meeting ended in a deadlock on
these very important appointments. Surprisingly, as re-
ported in another section of the media, Mr. Corbin chose
to blame "the intransigence" of President Jagdeo for fail-
ure to achieve a consensus.
Mr. Corbin seems to have forgotten another popular
saying that it takes two to tango; or differently stated, that
one hand can't clap. Compromise is accepted as an es-
sential ingredient for consensus
Therefore, failure to achieve consensus at Friday's
meeting suggests unwillingness for a mature compro-
mise by both sides. If indeed "intransigence" was in evi-
dence, the blame must be equally shared. Is Mr. Corbin
"himself not guilty of the same "sin" he has hurled at Mr.
Would the President have emerged as "the good guy"
if he had simply genuflected to Mr. Corbin's rigid demand
to overlook Chief Justice Carl Singh for confirmation in
the post of Chancellor of the Judiciary, and move on to
consideration of Justice of Appeal lan Chang for appoint-
ment as Chief Justice?
Mr. Corbin, for reason or reasons best known to him-
self (and his party?), has been consistent in opposing
the appointment of Chief Justice Singh as new Chan-
cellor of the Judiciary. Why? It cannot be lack of either
competence or integrity? Or is it a case of, as Guyanese
would remark, "goat bite he"?
It is normally the situation, not only in Guyana, but
elsewhere in CARICOM, that he/she who acts as head
of the judiciary rarely, if ever, fails to get the confirmation
nod when the time comes. Why should it be any differ-
ent against Chief Justice Singh to facilitate a nominee
of the main parliamentary opposition?
There seems to be something quite unpleasant
about this whole affair that cannot be answered as hav-
ing anything to do with qualification criteria. There is
more in the proverbial mortar than the pestle.

Corbin like a

school bully

I am not too surprised to see the reaction of the Leader of the
PNCR to the act of aggression exhibited by Venezuela recently.
Mr. Corbin reacted like a typical school yard bully. He has been
around long enough to know that the days of issuing threats and
uttering empty rhetoric when dealing with these situations are over.
The President and the Foreign Affairs Minister are dealing with
the issue in the internationally accepted way. What does he want?
Is it that he cannot accept that the rule of law does exist?
The Government has handled a more serious issue with Suriname
and we have seen the results, why is he pressing for Guyana to be
discredited internationally?
His utterances as a leader of a major political party and opposi-
tion are irresponsible. He needs to understand that people can dis-
agree and still have a healthy relationship.
I applaud the action taken so far by our government and
am confident that we will come out the better as a nation.


It is generally known that Mr. Corbin's original nomi-
nee as Chancellor to succeed the first woman Chancel-
lor, Desiree Bernard-appointed by a PPP/C administra-
tion and now a judge of the Caribbean Court of Justice-
was ex-Justice of Appeal Claudette Singh, who has since
demitted office.
Justice William Ramlall has ruled as unconstitutional
for both the offices of Chancellor and Chief Justice to be
conducted by the same person in acting capacities for a
long period. The government has challenged the ruling.
In considering the various aspects of this matter, the
learned judge himself could not have been unaware of
the politics of the situation that has to date frustrated a
consensus for Chief Justice Singh's confirmation as
Chancellor and appointment of a new Chief Justice.
Perhaps he considered that it was not for him to ap-
peal for those constitutionally required to engage in fruitful
consultation to resolve the impasse on the appointment
of a Chancellor. Yet, at the end of the day, this is what
remains to be done.
Justice, they say, is not a cloistered virtue and the
judges of any justice administration system of our multi-
party democracies in CARICOM cannot pretend to be un-
aware of the social, political and cultural realities of the
national environment, any more than the perceptions of
deep-rooted prejudices that often colour judgments.
The current problem in Guyana involving the appoint-
ment of a new Chancellor has served to underscore the
need for parliament to have a say on constitutional mat-
ters that cannot be resolved by required consensus
between a Head of State and Opposition Leader
Parliament, after all, is recognized as the highest
institution of a parliamentary democracy. The fact that
a governing party may have the advantage of its par-
liamentary majority simply goes, as they say, "with the
territory". A functioning democracy cannot be dragged
to a halt by "the intransigence" of either a President
or an Opposition Leader. It is still not too late for a sen-
sible compromise. Why not Mr. Singh as Chancellor
and Mr. Chang as Chief Justice?

MANY Berbicians may not know this or may be ignorant
the fact that Dave's Television- Eight here in New Amsterds
is providing a vital community service to the two neighbourii
regions and has been doing so since December 22, 1993. Ju
short of a year or so until that big 15TH Anniversary (althoul
I believe it is not a habit these days to celebrate TV statior
anniversaries), DTV-8 has done something that the other 1
station in the area has not done even though they existed I

enced growth over their 14 years of existence and that I
taken them very far in the business.
I have stated numerous times before within these very column
that DTV-8 exercises a tighter span of control between them a
their customers, something that is not shared by the other stati
in the town.
DTV-8 is not slanted in any political direction. I think this 1

programmes. I am talking about Live outdoor broadcasts. Exc(

in and around Georgetown being covered. Here in Berbice it v
DTV-8 that brought Live TV to viewers. While at this point I
very unsure of what the first Live broadcast the station carri
some years ago, I can recall Live broadcasts that originated fr(
the New Amsterdam Town Hall Main and Church Streets, a
Esplanade Road of more recent.
An outdoor Live broadcast does not count in my book if it
happening right in the TV station's back-yard, so to speak. A
DTV-8 has attested to that truth by going in and out of the towi
locality to make Live transmissions possible, which I know is r
an easy task.
It was also this station that popularized the common birthd
greeting and death announcement which have become growing non
among the Guyanese culture.
DTV- 8 has proven that it does not wish to remain in one stu
forever, but to grow, mature and continue to give more to its vie\
ers. Berbicians have seen numerous initiatives in years gone 1
(this past year being no exception). This was reflected in the pr
gramming, output and quality control implemented by this grol
ing business entity.
They say word-of-mouth advertising is the best way of se

DTV-8 has delivered the kind of television that the dying and we

during live coverage of New Amsterdam Town Day events for t
past years; and exploitation of the Berbice viewing public by t
annual $800 Mothers' and Fathers' Day greetings marathon by a
other media entity.
Berbicians whether they're conscious of the fact or not, ne.
DTV-8 now more than ever in their homes. It is the kind of tele'

Personally I enjoy their Sunday broadcasts, especially wh
every channel has some preacher shouting at me about the Bib

little or nothing critical to say about Berbice's Superstati4

for their blogspot. They will find so much in another part

Region Six

residents observes

World AIDS Day

Residents of Regions Six yesterday participated in a grand
rally, led by Minister of Health Dr. Leslie Ramsammy, in
observance of World AIDS Day. The march-moved along
Main Street to the New Amsterdam Hospital where a cer-
emony reflected Guyana's contributions to reducing the
spread and effect of HIV/AIDS on Guyanese.
Persons who participated included representatives of the
private sector, civic society, non-governmental organizations and
the health sector.
"As we observe World AIDS Day 2007, 1 am.confident
that we can win the battle against HIV. As we look back in
time, Guyanese and our partners can reflect on the many suc-
cesses in the fight against HIV that we have achieved in the
last several years. This year, as we continue to focus on keep-
ing the promise, we also highlight the important role of leader-
ship and that is something that this Government has not failed
to do," Minister Ramsammy said.
He added that Guyana has a genuine multi-sector approach
to the fight against HIV and that yesterday's activity has dem-
onstrated that approach.
"Even though the Ministry of Health remains in the lead
role in confronting HIV, we must feel a sense of pride that as a
country, Guyana has succeeded in crafting a strategy in which
various sectors are playing significant roles and civic society is
a major participant," the Minister said.
The growing partnership in preventing and controlling HIV
has now expanded to providing social support to families af-
fected by HIV.
Several support programmes were initiated, including one
to provide housing to some persons affected by HIV. The part-
nership between the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Hous-
-ing and Water and the World Bank has resulted in five persons
obtaining titles to house lots, through a lottery mechanism.
Further partnerships between the Ministry of Health and
PEPFAR, through GHARP, Food For The Poor and Habitat
for Humanity would result in the five families having their own
In 2007, there were programmes that provided monthly fi-
nancial support for more than 200 persons living with HIV.
This is a programme that involves partnership between the Min-
istry of Health and the Ministry of Human Services and Social
More than 800 persons are also benefitting from the Food
Bank located at the National AIDS Programme Secretariat of
the Ministry of Health.
All orphanages and other, facilities that house children with
HIV in Guyana are being upgraded as the administration is com-
mitted to ensuring that no child affected by HIV should be with-
out a home.
"There is much to reflect on and much for us to be proud
of as we observe 2007. But we also realise that World AIDS
Day 2007 cannot be a celebration. There is much more we
would need to accomplish and so it is that I would want all of
us to also commit to what could be achieved in 2008," Minis-
ter Ramsammy said.
For 2008, there are several targets to be achieved by the
-Health Ministry and its partners in winning the battle against
HIV/AIDS. These include:
Guyana must increase Prevention of Mother To Child
Transmission coverage from 80 per cent to universal 100 per
cent in 2008
Every child born to. an HIV+ mother must have an
HIV test to determine the child's HIV status by 12 weeks of
birth. At present,
children's HIV status can only be definitively deter-
mined after 18 months.
National Testing Day to be extended from one day to
two days and the target to be increased to 6,000 tests.
More than 50 per cent of Guyanese who are sexually
active to know their HIV status.
More than 5,000 persons living with HIV to be part
of the treatment and care programme and more than 2,500 per-
sons living with HIV to
be on Anti-rctroviral treatment.
Every person living with HIV to have a CD4 count at
least twice per year.
Every person tested positive for HIV, must have a
TB screening.
Every person diagnosed with.TB must have an HIV
Guyana's blood collection to exceed 7,500 units and
more than 3,600 units must be from voluntary donation.
More than 90 per cent of Guyanese must be made
aware of the different ways that HIV is transmitted. (GINA)

Older white women join

Kenya's sex tourists

By Jeremy Clarke

(Reuters) Bethan, 56, lives
in southern England on the
same street as best friend
Allie, 64.
They are on their first holi-
day to Kenya, a country they
say is "just full of big young
boys who like us older girls."
Hard figures are difficult
to come by, but local people
on the coast estimate that as
many as one in five single
women visiting from rich coun-
tries are in search of sex.
Allie and Bethan who
both declined to give their full
names said they planned to
spend a whole month touring
Kenya's palm-fringed beaches.
They would do well to avoid
the country's tourism offi-
"It's not evil," said Jake
Grieves-Cook, chairman of the
Kenya Tourist Board, when
asked about the practice of
older rich women traveling for
sex with young Kenyan men.
"But it's certainly some-
thing we frown upon."
Also, the health risks are
stark in a country with an
AIDS prevalence of 6.9 per-
cent. Although condom use
can only be guessed at, Julia
Davidson, an academic at
Nottingham University who
writes on sex tourism, said
that in the course of her re-
search she had met women
who shunned condoms -
finding them too "business-
like" for their exotic fantasies.
The white beaches of the
Indian Ocean coast stretched
"before the friends as they both
walked arm-in-arm with young
African men, Allie resting her
white haired-head on the
shoulder of her companion, a
six-foot-four 23-year-old from
the Maasai tribe.
He wore new sunglasses
he said were a gift from her.

red bandana tying back
dreadlocks and new-looking
sports shoes on his feet.
He looked up and came to
join her at the table, kissing her,
then collecting more coin's for the
pool game.
Grieves-Cook and many ho-
tel managers say they are doing
all they can to discourage the
practice of older women picking
up local boys, arguing it is far
from the type of tourism they
want to encourage in the east Af-
rican nation.
"The head of a local hoteliers'
association told me they have be-

ing guests who want to change

Grieves-Cook said.

long been notorious for attract-
ing another type of sex tourists
- those who abuse children.
As many as 15,000 girls in
four coastal districts about a
third of all 12-18 year-olds girls
there are involved in casual
sex for cash, a joint study by
Kenya's government and U.N.
children's charity UNICEF re-
ported late last year.
Up to 3,000 more girls and
boys are in full-time sex work,
it said, some paid for the "most
horrific and abnormal acts."
Emerging alongside this
black market trade and obvi-
ous in the bars and on the sand
once the sun goes down are
thousands of elderly white

women hoping for romantic, and
legal, encounters with much
younger Kenyan men.
They go dining at fine res-
taurants. then dancing, and back
to expensive hotel rooms over-
looking the coast.
"One type of sex tourist at-
tracted the other." said one man-
ager at a shorefront bar on
Mombasa's Bamburi beach.
"Old white guys have al-
ways come for the younger girls
and boys, preying on their pov-
erty ... But these old women fol-
lowed ... they never push the le-
gal age limits, they seem happy
just doing what is sneered at in
their countries."
Experts say some thrive on
the social status and financial
power that comes from taking
much poorer, younger lovers.
"This is what is sold to
tourists by tourism:companies
a kind of return to a colonial
past, where white women are
- served, serviced, and pampered

those are the only women I look

to live like the rich mzungus

from rich countries, staying in
the best hotels and just having
my fun."

Broadway gets its act

together as strike ends

By Andrew Salomon

NEW YORK (Back Stage) -
Broadway got back to busi-
ness Thursday, a day after
its stagehands ended the
longest work stoppage on
the Main Stem in more
than 30 years.
All 26 shows still shut-
tered by the strike were back
up and running by 8 p.m. EST,
except for the revival of
Harold Pinter's "The Home-

coming," which was closed dur-
ing its rehearsal period and was
to have begun its previews last
week. It instead will start perfor-
mances Tuesday and officially
open December 16.
The musical "Dr. Seuss'
How the Grinch Stole Christ-
mas!" had been closed for 13
days before it was reopened No-
vember 23 by court order.
Officials for both the League of
American Theatres and Producers
(LATP) and Local One of the Intl.

Assn. of Theatrical Stage Employ-
ees (IATSE) refused to discuss spe-
cifics of the deal, but theater indus-
try sources indicated that manage-
ment achieved one of its principal
aims: reducing the number of stage-
hands required to work during load-
ins, when shows are first installed
and constructed.
Local One rank and file are
scheduled to vote on the con-
tract December 9.
Under the previous deal,
which expired July 31, produc-,

ers had to hire a minimum of 22
stagehands for the most elabo-
rate musicals. With the new
deal, which the New York Times
reported will run for five years,
a minimum of 17 is now re-
"It's a nice chunk of
money we can save," said a
league member and producer
of a large musical running on
Broadway. "It's a savings we
needed, and we're grateful to
have it."

Common styles of

Manning and Jagdeo

-The 'maximum leadership' factor

THERE ARE two Caribbean
Community Heads of Gov-
ernment who seem to have
much in common-in positive
and negative terms.
Both Prime Minister Patrick
Manning of Trinidad and To-
bago and President Bharrat
Jagdeo of Guyana are known
for fine examples set for hard
work-virtually round-the-
clock at times-as well as the
regular direct contacts they
maintain with community-based
and social interest groups,
for which media publicity is al-
ways assured.
They head consecutive
freely elected governments in
the two major multi-ethnic, plu-
ral societies of the 15-member
Caribbean Community
(CARICOM) and have com-
parative good records in attract-
ing foreign investments and co-
operation of the international fi-
nancial institutions (IFIs).
On.the debit side, they have
acquired the unflattering reputa-
tion for a maximum leadership
style that at times runs
counter to claimed commitment
to the consultative and
democratic processes.
They loom larger than the
concept of "first among equals'

in a cabinet-style parliamentary
democracy, but without having
the social and political history
or stature of the founding lead-
ers of the parties that head ad-
ministrations, respectively,
in Port-of-Spain and
Although Manning is on
record as having flattered
himself in a national broadcast
as "father of the nation"-a
position the people of
Trinidad and Tobago rightly
associates only with the Eric
Williams, late founder-leader
of today's governing People's
National Movement (PNM)-
Prime Minister Manning is
most certainly not of the
mould of that legendary leader.
In the case of Guyana,
President Jagdeo is in an even
more curious position, since,
unlike Manning, he is not leader
of the governing People's Pro-
gressive Party (PPP) of the leg-
endary Cheddi Jagan.
The party's co-founder, fa-
mous for his tolerance and at-
tachment to the consensual ap-
proach-almost to a fault-
Jagan had remained undisputed
leader of the PPP until his death
as the first freely elected Execu-
tive President of Guyana.

Jagdeo, viewed as a
"prot6gC" of Jagan at the time
of his ascendancy in the party
and government when he first
became Minister of Finance, is
currently completing his second
full and final term in office; and
is part of the top leadership
structure of the PPP's "leader-
ship collective".

Both Manning and Jagdeo
have just returned home from
participating in last week's
Commonwealth Summit in
Uganda. Whether at home or
abroad, there is, however, little
doubt that, by their leadership
styles, they may have wittingly
or otherwise, etched into the
consciousness of the public that
all roads lead to them.
On his return home from
Uganda, Manning lost no
time in reinforcing the maxi-
mum leadership syndrome
by ignoring critical public/
media comments to stay the
course for a cabinet appoint-
ment of former banker,
Mariano Browne, despite a
impending court case initi-
ated by his former employer,
the Barbados-based RBTT
Bank Barbados Ltd for

alleged financial impropriety.
Manning's announcement
to the media that "Mr. Browne
remains appointee of the Prime
Minister in the Ministry of Fi-
nance..." (to be sworn in during
this week), sparked a swift edi-
torial condemnation last Friday
from the Trinidad Express. The
newspaper said it was "frankly
astonishing" that Manning could
have adopted such a position in-
stead of awaiting the legal out-
come of the accusations made
by RBTT Bank of Barbados.
Here in Guyana, President
Jagdeo would have been advised
before his return from the Com-
monwealth Summit on a range
of sensitive national matters
that developed during his ab-
sence, among them:
First, Venezuela's reported
incursion into Guyana's air-
space and subsequent blowing
up of two mining dredges in the
Cuyuni River-part of this
country's sovereign territory-
and secondly, a bizarre public
scuffle involving Local Govern-
ment Minister, Kellawan Lall, at
a bar where he allegedly pistol-
whipped a man and then fired
shots in the air.
It was later confirmed that
the police were aware of the in-
cident and that the cabinet min-
ister and the young man in ques-
tion-said to be a family mem-
ber of a woman with whom Lall
has a social relationship-
had decided on an "amicable

What has, however, trig-
gered criticisms, was the failure
by the police to request Mr. Lall
to hand over his licenced firearm
pending an official resolution to
the matter.
With the return home of
Jagdeo, things moved quite rap-
idly after a full week had
elapsed. Minister Lall was called
upon to hand over his gun-
which he did-but the President
has made it clear he had no plans
to request his resignation from
office while the entire issue was
being fully investigated.
It so happens that in both
Guyana and Trinidad and To-
bago, it is not unusual to
learn of a Head of Govern-
ment surprising both cabinet
and party executive or cen-
tral committee colleagues,
with their pronouncements on
matters of national impor-
tance, or disclosures of ac-
tions taken that they were
first learning about in the
media- just like the public
in general.
As I noted last Wednesday
in the 'Trinidad Express', Cabi-
net and senior party colleagues
of both Manning and Jagdeo

porting of problems they have

By Rickey Singh
cal issues of importance to
the people of the Caribbean
Community are scheduled
for discussion at a special
one-day summit this Friday
in Guyana:
They are the prevailing high
cost-of-living burden afflicting
member states of CARICOM,
and the current difficult negotia-
tions between the Caribbean and
the European Union for
completion of an Economic Part-
nership Agreement (EPA),
by year end.
Friday's meeting will be
hosted by President Bharrat
Jagdeo, who has lead responsi-
bility for regional agricultural
transformation, with food secu-
rity as a core component, con-
sistent with plans to sharply
cut the cost of food and bever-
age imports currently exceeding
US$5 million.
SCARICOM Secretary
General Edwin Carrington
said yesterday (Saturday) that
the special summit followed
separate initiatives. One in-
volved the recent call by
Grenada's Prime Minister
Keith Mitchell to deal with
rising food prices; the other
resulted from a caucus of

Spare a thought

for Grandmothers

Yesterday was World AIDS
Day. Since 1988, it has been
observed every year on De-
cember 1.
According to the World
Health Organisation, the sym-
bolic day provides govern-
ments, national AIDS
programmes, faith and comniu-
nity organizations and individu-
als with an opportuniity to raise
awareness and focus attention
on the global AIDS epidemic.
Like millions of people
worldwide affected directly and
indirectly, AIDS has reached the
inner circle of my own family.
One of my brothers died
ten years ago. His death devas-
tated the family and for the
older relatives such as my
grandparents, it was difficult for
them to grasp this seemingly
new deadly virus on the world's
landscape- and how my younger
brother contracted it. "
Two years ago, my family
endured the nightmare all over
again when another close relative
was diagnosed as being HIV-
He is alive today because of
what I call a miracle cocktail of
drugs provided free to him by
the government; it has brought
him back literally from the
brink of death.
I've met other people who
have had multiple deaths in their
families due to HIV and AIDS

related complications.
Years ago, one friend con-
fideol that three of his brothers
contracted the disease because of
.their promiscuous lifestyles (his
words), the impact it has had on
his elderly parents and other
siblings and also how it sobered
him into thinking about his own
Most of the people with
whom I have regular contact
know somebody who is HIV-
positive or know about the
death of someone from HIV and
AIDS-related complications.
AIDS is all around us, no
doubt about it. Only the naive
would be simple minded or even
ignorant to believe that it can-
not touch their friends or rela-
When my brother died ten
years ago, I used to cringe when
the mass media began the annual
AIDS awareness campaign lead-
ing up to December 1.
I dreaded attending the me-
dia briefings or the conferences
where officials talked about the
increasing incidence of HIV and
AIDS and the growing number
of deaths that have occurred as
a result.
One of my brothers is in
those statistics.
So hearing those figures re-
minded me too much of the pain
and suffering my family en-
dured seeing my brother waste
away in a bed at the San
Fernando general hospital in the
southern city, and we were all

helpless to do anything about
it, except to offer words of
Time healed our pain until
two years ago when we were
again forced to face the reality
of AIDS in the family for a sec-
ond time. ,
Surprisingly, members of
the family shouldered this lat-
est situation well. Yes, there
were the tears, but we pulled
together and were strong for the
individual and offered all the
support we could muster for
his wife and daughter, not yet
a teenager.
So that's my own personal
reality with AIDS.
Lately, I've been having
other thoughts on the AIDS
pandemic, particularly as it re-
lates to the impact it has been
having on grandmothers who
are left to take care of their or-
phaned grandchildren.
AIDS which has claimed the
lives of millions of people has
also opened up a generation of
grandmothers, particularly in
poor countries, even in some of
our Caribbean countries, to take
care of orphaned grandchildren,
some of whom are HIV-posi-
United Nations figures
state that at least 12 million chil-
dren in Africa have lost one or
both parents because of AIDS,
representing 80 percent of all
AIDS orphans in the develop-
ing world.
The number of orphans in
Africa has increased by 50 per-
cent since 1990, while falling in
other regions. The United Na-
tions says there will be 53 mil-
lion by 2010.
We've seen on our televi-
sions, the grandmothers in Af-
rica, dubbed the "AIDS gran-
nies", who risk and sometimes
sacrifice their lives to take care
of their orphaned grandchildren
after burying a son or a daugh-
ter or several of their children

who died from HIV and AIDS
Although I've seen more of
these real life stories in the Af-
rican continent, I'm sure it's the
same throughout the regions of
the world where grandmothers,
the primary care-givers, strug-
gling through their poverty, with
little money, scraps of food and
almost no support, take care of
the parentless children as best
as they could with boundless
love and a sense of duty.
In the Caribbean, we know
our grandmothers have always
been around to take care of their
grandchildren as their adult sons
and daughters go off to work or
head off to the United States to
earn a living, many of them
working illegally for money,
some of which is sent back
Grandmothers have always
been a presence in the lives of
their grandchildren when their
parents, for one reason or the
other, are absent and take little
or no part in their upbringing.
Listening to the radio some
months ago, I was struck by the
emotions of a man who called
into a talk show programme to
give his response on the person
who impacted his life the most.
The man, sobbing into the
telephone, recalled growing up
with his grandmother, now de-
ceased, and the love and care she
gave him.
Having also had my pater-
nal grandmother impacting on
my own life in a very positive
way, and seeing grandmothers all
around helping to take care of
their grandchildren, I wonder
why a symbolic day hasn't
been set aside to honour and ap-
preciate them.
I think that's a most worth-
while to a Mother's
Day and Father's Day.
But now, grandmothers
have evolved from a role of a
simple care-giver to their grand-

children to becoming health care
providers for their ill grandchil-
dren afflicted with HIV and
AIDS, and holding whatever is
left of the family together.
At last year's 16th Interna-
tional AIDS conference in
Toronto, grandmothers who
have the responsibility of tak-
ing care of the orphaned grand-
children, many of them HIV
positive, were involved in the
Grandmothers' Gathering on the
sidelines of the conference.
One grandmother from the
African continent said it was no
longer strange to see gray-haired
elderly women carrying young
babies their grandchildren on
their backs, as though they had
given birth to them.
The Grandmothers' Gather-
ing is part of the Grandmothers
to Grandmothers Campaign
organised by the Stephen Lewis
Foundation, which provides
funding to 140 community-
based projects in 14 African
It is chaired by former
United Nations envoy to AIDS
in Africa, Canadian Stephen
Lewis, now currently co-direc-
tor of AIDS Free World, a U.S.-
based non-governmental
According to the
Foundation's web-site, grand-
mothers single-handedly care
for millions of children or-
phaned by AIDS, sometimes as
many as ten to fifteen in one
"These magnificently coura-

geous women bury their own
children and then look after their
orphan grandchildren, calling on
astonishing reserves of love and
emotional resilience. But they
do so with almost no support,"
it said.
Grandmothers Against
Poverty and Aids (GAPA)
started as a self-help project in
a low socio-economic area of
Khayelitsha, outside Cape
Town, South Africa in 2001,
but has evolved into a volun-
tary organisation managed by
a committee of grandmothers
to spread information and give
support to other grandmoth-
Workshops are held each
month for grandmothers where
they learn about HIV infection
and AIDS. Practical skills to
overcome effects of the pan-!
demic on households are taught.
The workshops cover topics:
such as vegetable gardening, hu-
man rights, elder abuse, access-'
ing social grants, drawing up a:
will and business skills.
As we observed World
AIDS Day, my thoughts andi
prayers have been on grand-
mothers the world over, here'
too in the Caribbean, as they'
deal daily with the brutal re-
alities of AIDS.

Decline of

the family

Functionalist sociologist George Peter Murdock defines the
family as "A social group characterized by common resi-
dence, economic cooperation and reproduction. It includes
adults of both sexes, at least
two of whom maintain a so-
cially -approved sexual re-
lationship, and one or more
children, own or adopted, of
the sexually cohabiting
adults" (Social Structure,
The family is considered
to be the most basic or cen- .
tral of all human inslitutlions. .
Hence its v success or failure
will inevitably impact on ev-l
cry other human institution.
It is in the family that chil-
dren arc raised and socialized,
hence determining their func-
tions in the wider society. It
would be interesting to note
that it takes a family to raise
a doctor or a teacher, and it
also takes a family to raise a
rapist and a murderer. The family is the first place of the social-
ization process of an individual, and socialization determines how
we think, feel, and act. It is in the family that a child develops
his/her values .The things learnt within a family group are car-
ried with the individual into his/her adult life and consequently,
affect the basic ways this person interacts with others in the
wider society. It is in the family that the concepts of caring,
sharing and respect for self and others are learnt. It is no won-
der therefore that the family is often referred to as the building
block of society.
Functionalists such as Murdock, Parsons and Fletcher have
all emphasized the important role the family plays in society.
The decline of the family therefore must be seen as having
the potential of aggravating the social ills plaguing our society.
An escalation in crime, drug abuse and many other social prob-
lems can all be linked to the collapse of the family.
It is very clear to all that the family as an institution is fall-
ing apart. Evidence of this is seen in a number of areas.
The practice of common law relationships replacing the le-
gal marital relationship is an indication of the decline in family.
Marriage is indicative of commitment and loyalty, which are val-
ues upon which family is built. Marriage therefore can be viewed
as a foundation for a healthy relationship. Consequently, the de-
parture from the practice of marriage and the acceptance of com

US-Iraq: An



THE word "enduring" crops
up a lot in connection with
the U.S. adventure in Iraq. As
soon as the U.S. army occu-
pied the country in 2003, it
began work on fourteen "en-
during" (i.e. permanent)
military bases to turn it into
an American bastion at the
head of the Gulf. And now
President George W. Bush
and Iraq's Prime Minister
Nouri al-Maliki have signed
an agreement to forge an
"enduring" U.S.-Iraqi rela-
tionship once the United Na-
tions mandate that currently
authorises the US presence
in the country expires at the
end of next year.
The UN mandate that pro-
vides a legal justification for the
current "multinational" force in
Iraq was a desperate attempt to
paper over the fact that the
organisation's most powerful
member had launched an unpro-
voked invasion of another coun-
try. The Security Council could
not defy or condemn ihe
United States Britain and
the U.S. would both have ve-
toed such a move so it chose
to give it some diplomatic cover
But the next extension of
the UN mandate, to the end of
2008, will be the last.
The "coalition" of other
countries that contributed
troops to the occupation of Iraq
is melting away: the new Aus-
tralian government is going to
bring its troops home, the Japa-
nese parliament has ended the
country's naval support for the
Iraq mission (the soldiers had
already left), and Britain's

Prime Minister Gordon Brown
is searching for a tactful way to
pull all the British troops out.
Soon it will just be the
Americans and the Iraqis, alone
together, and the Bush admin-
istration. encouraged by the
temporary improvement that
the "surge" has wrought in the
security situation in Iraq, is
pushing on with its original
plans for the country. Over the
next year. the United States will
negotiate the military, political
and economic terms of the "en-
during" relationship with Iraq
that was always intended to fol-
low the invasion of the country.
We need not dwell on the
unequal status of the American
and Iraqi participants in this ne-
gotiation, with 160,000 Ameri-
can troops in Iraq and Prime
Minister al-Maliki unable, as he
put it last year, to "move even
a battalion without American
consent." We may assume that
the agreement will ratify the
permanent presence of Ameri-
can armed forces in Iraq and
grant preferential treatment to
U.S. investments in the country.
But we might ask, just once
more, why the U.S. did all this.
There were no terrorists in
Iraq before the U.S. invasion,
nor had there been any contact
between Saddam Hussein and
the plotters of the 9/11 attacks
on the United States. There
were no "weapons of mass de-
struction" in Iraq, either. Indeed,
a number of former U.S. offi-
cials have confirmed that the in-
vasion of Iraq was high on the
Bush administration's agenda
from the moment it took office,
eight months before 9/11. But

there is no consensus on WHY
it wanted to invade Iraq.
As a colleague once re-
marked, "1I can give you a dozen
possible reasons why the Bush
administration invaded Iraq, but
I can't give you just one." The
need to find a new base for the
American troops that were caus-
ing embarrassment to the Saudi
Arabian regime, a desire by the
younger Bush to do what his
father had failed to do and cap-
ture Baghdad. fear that Saddam
Hussein was going to start de-
manding payment for his oil in
euros rather than dollars ev-
ery sort of petty or preposter-
ous motive has been proposed.
As a rule of thumb, it's best
to assume that U.S. leaders are
guided by strategic rather than
personal considerations. It is
also wise to be suspicious of
the simpler oil-related explana-
tions: Saddam Hussein lacked
the standing to lead the other
oil-exporting states in a switch
from the dollar to the euro, for
example. even if he was toying
with such an idea.
There is no need to invade
countries in order to get oil
from them.
There could, however, be a
requirement for large, perma-
nent American military bases
somewhere in the Gulf if the
goal was to be able to stop oil
from the region from reaching
some other country. Which
The only challenger to
America's status as sole super-
power is China, and the Bush
administration has spent the last
seven years in tireless pursuit
of alliances or less formal mili-

tary arrangements with coun-
tries all around China's borders.
("Containment." they call it.)
China is heavily dependent
on imported oil. and the bulk of
its imports come from the Gulf.
An American hand on China's
oil tap could be a major strate-
gic asset. Maybe that's what
Iraq was about.
Even this explanation doesn't
make complete sense. The U.S.
Navy owns half the major war-
ships on the planet, and is per-
fectly capable of starving China
of oil without any land bases in
the Gulf. On the other hand,
strategy is rarely fully rational,
and the lavish funding of the
Pentagon does encourage it
to go in for belt-and-suspenders
(Consider the famous
"triad" of long-range bombers,
ICBMs and submarine-
launched missiles, all designed
to deliver the same nuclear
weapons on the same targets.)
It's only of concern to his-
torians now, of course, because
the "enduring bases" are just
part of the larger fantasy of U.S.
victory ift Iraq.
The "surge" will end, the
insurgents will come back out of
their holes, and the attrition of
U.S. forces in Iraq will resume
its usual pace. They will all go
home eventually.

A Caribbean Broadcast Network?

The BBC shows the way

THE British Broadcasting
Corporation (BBC) can now
be heard 24 hours a day ev-
ery day on an FM band in
three Caribbean countries-
Antigua and Barbuda, Ja-
maica and Trinidad and To-
This is good for the BBC
and for audiences in Caribbean
countries who want to hear
comprehensive world news as
well as a variety of well pro-
duced programmes on a wide
range of issues.
Amongst the BBC's trans-
missions from London are
programmes tailor-made for the
Caribbean by the BBC's Carib-
bean service. The transmissions
on the FM band are high qual-
ity and easy for the listener to

BBC has consistently produced

Before the advent of the Car-
ibbean Broadcasting Union
(CBU) and the Caribbean News
Agency (CANA) in the early
1970s, the BBC's Caribbean
Service was the only consistent
and reliable source of pan-Car-
-ibbean events that was available
to Caribbean countries.
In its early days, the BBC's
Caribbean Service provided
coverage of events in the United
Kingdom that affected the Car-
ibbean. And, there were many,
beginning with political and
constitutional issues such as the
Independence talks at Lancaster
House for a succession of coun-
tries in the 1960s: Jamaica,

mon law arrangements as an al-
ternative is evidence of a decline
in family.
The rising cases of female
headed (single parent) house-
holds are an indication of the de-"
cline of the family.
In August 2005, the Bureau
of Statistics conducted a popu-
lation and housing census and
discovered that in Region Three
11.8 percent of households are
headed by women as against
15.2 percent, headed by men. In
Region Four, 52.2 percent are
headed by women as against
38.8 percent headed by men, and
in Region Six 15.1 percent
headed by women as against
18.1 percent headed by men.
It is very interesting to note
that in Region Four, where the
bulk of Guyana's population re-
sides, more than half of the
homes are headed by single fe-
Dr. Godfrey St. Bernard of
the University of the West
Indies, in his scholastic presen-
tation entitled "Major trends af-
fecting families in Central
America and the Caribbean",
identified a number of contribu-
tors to the decline in the family.
He further supports the theory
that one such contributor is the
preponderance of female headed
households. "There is a higher
prevalence of female headed
household in Caribbean coun-
tries than in Central American
countries. The absence of a male
authority figure in many ways

and Barbados.
There was also coverage of
economic issues: discussion of
market access and preferential
pricing for sugar which then
provided employment for a
larger number of countries than
it does today.
And, Caribbean people at
home learned of the issues fac-
ing their Diaspora in the UK in-
cluding riots provoked by racial
On the more pleasant side,
many families heard the voices
of their relatives, studying in the
UK, on a Caribbean Christmas
programme. Many a tear was
shed on both sides of the Atlan-
tic when those programmes
were broadcast in the region. It
should be recalled that in the late
1950s and early 1960s tele-
phone calls from the UK to the
Caribbean was problematic not
only because of cost, but also
because few homes had tele-
Today, with the advent of
modern technology including
rapid telephone connections, mo-
bile telephones and the Internet,
the BBC's Caribbean Service
covers events both in the Carib-
bean and in the UK, and unlike
other Caribbean news providers
it is free and easily accessible to
the listener. Consequently, it re-
mains a vital source of informa-
tion for Caribbean countries even
about local events.
So, the region has to be
thankful to the BBC for main-
taining a sufficient interest in
the Caribbean to spend British
taxpayers' resources on provid-

lends to a break down in disci-
pline and order, which ulti-
mately results in the collapse of
the family."
I would further suggest that
the pattern has also been estab-
lished that young men growing
up in homes where the father is
absent are more likely to dem-
onstrate similar irresponsibly
behavior in their adult lives.
This issue of the absence of
the father from the homes in the
context of the Caribbean has at-
tracted many concerns, and con-
tinues to be a subject for criti-
cal discourse.
Edith Clarke in her book
"My mother who fathered me"
speaks of the erroneous social
perception that parenting is con-
sidered a woman's responsibility.
"The man is satisfied by the
proof of his virility and does not
necessarily accept any of the
obligation and duties of parent-
hood. These are generally ac-
cepted as the woman's respon-
sibility and there is no public
censure if he does not acknowl-
edge or fulfill them."(Clarke
1970 (1957):96).
Another major contributor to
the decline of the family in the
context of Guyana and the Car-
ibbean is the impact of migration.
The Harvard immigration
Project (Swarez-Orozco,
Todorova and Louie, 2002) has
drawn international attention to
the vast number of children who
endure lengthy separation from
their parents during the migration
process. Parents will either mi-
grate seasonally for six months

ing news coverage and analysis
for the Caribbean.
What the BBC is doing
should have been done by the
Caribbean itself a long time
It is almost incomprehen-
sible that the 15-nations of the
Caribbean Community and
Common Market (CARICOM)
are developing a Single Market,
and are engaged in myriad com-
mon and joint activities, yet
they have no single tool for in-
forming and educating the Car-
ibbean people.
Having started in the early
1970s three decades ago one
would have expected by now
that the CBU would have devel-
oped a radio station that pro-
duced and delivered programmes
simultaneously throughout the
region as the BBC is now doing.
This has not happened.
Those who led the CBU Sec-
retariat are not to be blamed.
Each of them has had a vision of
the CBU playing a key role in the
integration of the region including
the breaking down on mental bar-
riers that continue the notion of
separateness among some sec-
tions of Caribbean society.
CANA has developed a
wonderful television capability
and its cable channel,
Caribvision, provides news cov-
erage as well as feature
programmes drawn from all over
the Caribbean. But, again, it is
a cable channel, open only to
those who can pay for it. Fur-
ther, even though its has a num-
ber of gifted broadcasters on its
staff, its capability of covering

periods to work or as we say
"catch their hand", and send
money or more appropriately
'remittances' back home. Some-
times it is one parent or even
both. The explanation always
given is that 'we are going so you
kids can have a better life'. Some
times the younger children are
left with older siblings or ex-
tended family members. The im-
pact of such arrangements on the
family is immeasurable. Clinical
literature suggests that these chil-
dren face issues of grief, loss and
detachment. Not to mention the
exposure to abuse. (Glasgow and
Crawford 2002)
Proponents of this theory
such as J. Bowlby argue that
this practice results in disrup-
tion to the parent-child bond
which puts the child at risk not
only in the short term, but also
for long term psychological ad-
justment (Bowlby, 1982).
Another cultural impact of
migration on the family in the
context of Guyana is the emer-
gence of a 'barrel mentality',
which has bred a culture of de-
pendency. Many young people
failing to appreciate the sacri-
fices made by the parents have
developed an attitude of depen-
dency on a monthly supply of
barrels and remittances, so that
they have no affinity to work
and sacrifice, hence giving birth
to a very shallow and irrespon-
sible generation.
Something radical must
be done to arrest this down-
ward spiral of the family in-

Page 14 & 19.p65

events live in countries and
transmitting such coverage
across the region, is constrained
by a lack of resources.
Hence, the Caribbean is yet
to deliver a region-wide news
and information service that is
accessible to all its people.
Yet, the technology exists to
do so, and the regional integra-
tion process even if it is lim-
ited to a Single Market re-
quires an underlying informa-
tion and education network.
The BBC has shown what
is possible.
A joint effort by regional
governments, supported by the
regional private sector who are
the principal beneficiaries of a
Single Market, along with the
regional media the CBU and
CANA in particular could
make it happen.
The alternative is an exter-
nal agency that recognizes the
potential for a single radio and
or television station who takes
advantage of the vacuum to
provide commercially viable
programmes but little public
service broadcasting.

"When reflecting on this
year's theme, I thought that it
should also include the fact that
Guyana, having, recognized the
role of the Ministry of Health
and the administration, should
rededicate itself to continuing
that leadership," Minister
Ramsarran said.
The demonstration of lead-
ership at the level of Parliament
was recently highlighted through
the adoption of the Port-of-
Spain Declaration for the de-
stigmatisation against HIV/
The Declaration, according
to Minister Ramsarran, follows'
a Regional summit in Port-of-
Spain in 2004 that was attended
by both Government and Op-
position members of the
Guyana Parliament.
The meeting entailed a dis-
cussion about HIV/AIDS and its
impact on the Region's labour
'force and called on leaders to
enact a Declaration in the vari-
ous National Assemblies.
"The Parliamentarians of
Guyana accept that we must
take leadership of the process
and commit to always bring it
to the fore. We have kept that
promise, since even in the dif-
ferent debates, the theme about
HIV/AIDS resonates," Minister
Ramsarran added.
Guyana's leadership in
the fight has also been high-
lighted through partnership.
The President's Emergency
Plan for AIDS Relief
(PEPFAR) is one such
programme that has been
gaining momentum.(GLNA)

Laing Avenue fire

victims still in dire need

By Ruel Johnson

IN a city prone to devastating
fires 2007 could have been
considered relatively un-
eventful for Georgetown -
that is until the evening of
October 10th when an in-
ferno swept through a Laing
Avenue apartment block. w.
By the time the night was
over at least two dozen persons
were left either homeless or
temporarily displaced, and the
damages amounted to unknown
millions of dollars between the
six apartments which were ei-
ther completely razed or par-
tially gutted. While there were
no casualties the night of the
fire, a fortunate enough occur-
rence since roughly half of those
affected were children, one resi-
dent eventually died from
smoke inhalation.
In first two weeks follow-
ing the blaze, public sympathy
for the plight of the Laing Av-
enue fire victims was wide-
spread. The media brought the
devastation home to a public
still trying to come to grips
with the senseless deaths of ten
If there was no help to be
given in this world for the vic-
tims of the Linden smashup, the
situation with the victims of
the Laing Avenue fire victims
was different. Many residents
lost everything they had in the
fire, and even those whose
homes had not burnt com-
pletely to the ground suffered
serious personal losses.
When Sunday Chronicle
visited the site of the fire yes-
terday, we found Mr. Knight
Bell, formerly of Apartment 55
shovel in hand trying to a dig a
run off for the water which had
accumulated over the spot
where his house once stood.
Recent rains waterlogged his
'place', he explained so he was
improving the drainage in the
front his yard. That any sort
of house once stood in front of
the spot where he stood digging
is hard to believe.

ally can't work."
Mr. Carl Peters has been
slightly more fortunate. The en-
tire top floor of his house was
destroyed, but the bottom half
was left relatively unscathed.
When this paper visited him
yesterday, the Pastor of the
West Ruimveldt Full Gospel
Church was busy supervising
the reconstruction of the top
floor of his home. His wife,
Carlotta was in the kitchen do-
ing housework while their two
sons lay on one of the two beds,
located in what was formerly
their living room, watching tele-
Pastor Peters said the past
two months has been particu-
larly traumatic for his family.
He said that dealing with the fire
has left him incapable of func-
tioning to his best capacity in
his duties as pastor. His older
son Stephen has noticeably
dropped back with his school-
work one teacher recently in-
formed the family.
Carlotta Bell, wife shares
the same nightly torment with
her husband. Every sound in
the night, they both explain,
startles them, particularly any-
thing which touches or moves a
zinc sheet. Even as she was
speaking to this paper about the
effect this had on her nerves, a
zinc sheet dropped by the men
working on top floor visible
alarms her for a brief moment.
The Bells stated that they
had considered renting in order
to ensure their personal security
but could find nothing less than
$30,000 and even many of the
apartments of that size were in-
adequate to hold their belong-
The person we spoke to
seemingly still most traumatized
by the fire was 31-year-old
mother of two, Tasha Griffith.
The very day that she had com-
pleted construction of her two
bedroom extension at the back
of her father's house at Lot 57
apartment was the same day
that she lost it to the fire. She
had spent years accumulating
the resources to build a separate
home h.r her and I\,.o dauhter-.

dents were required to submit
their estimates to the Guyana
Relief Council which would
then pass them on to Barama.
He said that the submissions to
the GRC were done but when
he on behalf of his family and
other residents tried to follow
up on the matter, he was treated
unprofessionally by an em-
ployee of the Council. He
stated that he contacted Barama
and learned that they had not
received any estimate as yet.
We called GRC's Adminis-
trative Officer, Lynette Carter
for her comments on the mat-
ter. She explained that she had
taken the decision to wait until
all the estimates from the resi-
dents were submitted before

forwarding the information to
Barama. She stated that the es-
timates were still outstanding at
present, the latest being re-
ceived on Friday.
"If you were me," she
asked, "would you be submit-

The residents also said
that, following President's
Jagdeo visit to the area, they
were promised financial assis-
tance to help put their lives to-
gether again. Those who owned
houses which were completely
destroyed were. assured of
$300,000 from the government
of Guyana while those whose
homes suffered partial damage

were promised $100,000. None
of that money has yet been re-
ceived. We called Minister of
Human Services, Ms. Priya
Manickchand for an update on
the situation regarding the prom-
ised money.
Minister Manickchand, just
back from a trip to the interior
when we spoke to her yester-
day, explained that the money
was released to her Ministry
from the Ministry of Finance
only last week. She said that the
residents of the Laing Avenue
Fire could expect their money
sometime next week.

Jackson accepts

two-year extension

with Lakers
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Reuters) Los Angeles Lakers
coach Phil Jackson has accepted a two-year contract ex-
tension worth some $24 million, the Los Angeles Times
reported on its Web site (
It will keep the'62-year-old Jackson under contract with
the Lakers through the 2010 season.
"The decision to return as coach and the decision to be
asked to return as coach both had very little to do with Kobe
Bryant and very little to do with the talent," Jackson told re-
porters ahead of Thursday's game against Denver.
"It's about the situation here the proximity that I feel to
this organisation, the comfort I feel working for this organisation
and the progress I think we're

the year that he be traded hbu'
Jackson said there had been no
mention of a trade since the sea-
son started.
Bryant told the Los Ange- .

told the newspaper.

ion, the greatest coach of all-

Arsenal open up five-point-

Everton, who thrashed
Sunderland 7-1 last week,
were unable to repeat their
heroics and drew 0-0 at
Portsmouth, while Blackburn
Rovers hammered suffering
Newcastle United 3-1 at

While Arsenal provided
Villa with a masterclass in
passing football in the first
half, they will have felt for-
tunate to leave Birmingham
with all three points after
Martin O'Neill's side domi-
nated the second.
Gardner's neat half-volley
had given the home side hope,
but Flamini sent a searing low
left-foot shot from 20 metres
into the net for the equaliser nine
minutes later.
"We worked very hard for
it." Flamini said. "It was a bit

"We were a bit nervous be-
cause we were tired but at the
end we stayed calm and we had
this chance to score," Chelsea
striker Didier Drogba told Sky
Sports television.
"It was a physical game
and I think the referee had a
great game, it's not easy to ref
in a big derby like this one. He
did his job and I think the play-
ers in the second half were a bit
more responsible."
The striker complained to
the fourth official early in the
first half, with television images
suggesting he had been troubled
by a fan shining a laser pen in
his eyes.
"It was difficult because
you see this green light but
this was a stupid fan, I think,"
said the Ivory Coast player.

WITHOUT taking anything
away from Zimbabwe's first
ODI win over West Indies, the
* next four matches will show
if this was a flash in the pan
or the start of something
more substantial.
Since taking over from
Kevin Curran as Zimbabwe
coach, Robin Brown has been
singing the one tune: the need to
reverse an inherited negative ap-
proach towards the game by his
players which was a hallmark of
the Curran regime.
"The days of playing to
compete are over," he is re-
ported to have told local report-
ers at a press meeting on the eve
of the first ODI.
Curran sent his players out
to do no more than bat out the
overs, with the result that rarely
did they ever give themselves a
chance to win matches. It was
safety first and that negativity
spread to the players.
"My contract doesn't say
that I have to win matches, it
says as long as I am competi-
tive, then my employers are
happy," he boasted. In the
end, even swatches of non-
cricketers within the ZC board
realized that was not a viable
Brown oozes self-assurance
in the midst of adversity. His
confidence lies in his own abil-
ity as a cricket instructor of
note, and his power to uplift
and overhaul the whole attitude
of a bunch of young players,
whom he has bluntly told to pull
up their socks.

The results have been ap-
parent from as early as his first
assignment when Zimbabwe
stunned Australia at the ICC
World Twenty20 in South Af-
rica. For once the Zimbabwe
Cricket board deserves a pat on
the back for a cricket decision
which seems to be bearing early
The players too are buy-
ing into Brown's regime.
Commenting on his outstand-
ing all-round performance
which earned him the man-
of-the-match award, Chamu
Chibhabha paid tribute to the
coach, saying that he "allows
us to play our natural game".
That could never have been
said under Curran.
Zimbabwe captain Prosper
Utseya, who seems to be grow-
ing in confidence under Brown,
admitted that his side can no
longer use inexperience as an ex-
cuse for poor cricket and self-
inflicted defeats.
It is certainly an approach
which can be taken forward. But
will it be? Only time will tell
and much will be clearer by the
end of the week.
Zimbabwe have the remain-
ing four matches to prove that
their first ODI win ;is no
fluke, and that they can genu-
.inely claim to be a bona fide
member of the international
cricket family.
They need to take forward
the positives from the first
match, like the resur' .wci ,f

KANDY, Sri Lanka (Reuters)
- Matthew Hoggard and
Monty Panesar shared seven
wickets as Sri Lanka were
bowled out for 188 on the first
day of the first Test against
England yesterday.

Hoggard was responsible
for the early wickets, reducing
the hosts to 42 for 5 before
lunch, while left-arm spinner

lower order.

Kumar Sangakkara rescued
the hosts from an embarrass-
ingly low score with a fine 92,
falling short of a century only
because of a spectacular diving
catch from Paul Collingwood at
backward point.

peared to be ideal for batting
at the time.
However, Hoggard pro-

finding some early swing.

GUYANA continued their winning ways by defeating
Guyana Cricket Inc. of USA and thereby taking an unas-
sailable 2-0 lead in the feature three-match series yester-
day at the Guyana National Stadium at Providence.
The much-touted Guyana triumphed by five wickets with
their skipper Travis Dowlin leading the way with a well-played
48 as his team reached 105 for five in the penultimate over re-
plying to the visitors' 104 for six from the 20 overs.
Veteran 36-year-old Essequibo batsman Ramesh Nanne (321.
in his first appearance for Guyana at any level, shared a 60-run
fourth-wicket stand with the elegant Dowlin.
The two joined forces when their learn were struggling at
35 for three in the 10th over.
Man-of-the-match Dowlin, who has been in tremendous
form. capitalised on his solitary chance by hitting five fours
from 44 deliveries before he was run-out two shown of second
consecutive fifty in the tournament so far.
The left-handed Narine, in usual aggressive slile,
reached the boundary on four occasions from 27 balls af-
ter Guyana lost opener Sewnarine Chattergoon (0. Chris-
topher Barnwell (8) and Orin Forde (7).
Reon King who bowled splendidly maintained a steady line
and length and quickly accounted for Chattergoon while soon
after he had Christopher Barnwell loop a catch to Zarmn .Xnun
at iriorin ud-wicket for eight while Forde was bowled by left-
arm orthodox spinner Neil McGarrell for seven
Earlier, the home team won the toss and invited the oppo-
siton to take first strike on a perfect batting track in glorious
sunshine but only managed their Iotal through the effort of
MeGarrell's 23-ball unbeaten 22 with a igx as not other bats-
man showed the willingness to play a big innings.

Guyana won the 40-over on Friday at Bourda. They will
once again clash on Tuesday in a 50-oNer contest at the
Albion Community Centre ground in Berbice to culminate
their introductory trip to Guyana.

(eight) mistimed a checked drive
and chipped a simple catch to
Vaughan at mid on.
Straight after the first
drinks break of the day the
wickets started to tumble fast
as Hoggard dismissed skipper
Mahela Jayawardene (one)
with a perfectly-pitched
Chamara Silva (two) fell to
a similar swinging delivery,
pushing forward and edging be-
hind to wicketkeeper Matthew
Five balls later Hoggard
managed to seam the ball in
the opposite direction and
found another outside edge,
this time off left-hander
Jehan Mubarak who departed
for a duck on his recall to the
Test team.
Wicketkeeper Prasanna
Jayawardene gave Sangakkara
solid support, batting positively
for his 51 from 102 balls with
nine boundaries.
The pair added 106 runs in
30.1 overs either side of the
lunch break before left-arm spin-
ner Monty Panesar snared
Jayawardene at short leg.
Sangakkara batted brilliantly,
expertly negotiating the early
swing movement and seizing on
any opportunity to score,
stroking 13 stylish boundaries in
his 159-ball knock.
Jayawardene's departure
precipitated a further collapse as
Panesar bowled Vaas (12) and
snared Dilhara Fernando
(nought) off a leading edge.
England had earlier pre-
ferred all- rounder Ravi
Bopara to middle-order bats-
man Owais Shah and picked
fast bowler James Anderson
ahead of Steve Harmison.

Rusal and Net Rockers

tangle today for $60 000

By Joe Chapman
GROUP runners-up Club
Rusal and Net Rockers are to
contest the Upper Demerara
Football Association's Com-
mercial Cup championship
today after knocking out
favoured sides Winners Con-
nection and Silver Shattas
respectively in semifinal en-
Group B second-placed side
Rusal from Aroaima propelled
themselves into the final after
dismantling Group A leaders
Winners Connection 5-0, behind
a hat-trick of goals from the
boot of Roy Leacock and a
double by Dale Sauers.
In the other semifinal

played recently, it was a 1-1
score after 90 minutes with
Keon Bristol scoring for Net
Rockers and Michael Wills
for Silver Shattas.
However, Net Rockers, the
second-placed side in group A
prevailed against the Group B
top team 5-3 from penalty kicks
and in the process ended the un-
beaten run Silver Shattas when
it mattered most.
Today, Net Rockers must
fancy their chances with
Bristol having registered four
goals in his last two outings,
along with Ray Fraser, Ber-
nard John and Jermaine
Adams all in fine form.
However, they will miss
the services of the suspended

Shawn Henry.
Their opponents will
depend on the expertise of
captain Travis Waterton,
now the leading scorer in
the tournament with nine
goals, seven have come
from spot kicks.
In Roy Leacock who now
has six goals, they also have an-
other scorer in their line-up with
Dale Sauers capable of creating
problems to opposing defenders
because of his wily dribbling
ability when he motors down
the right flank.
This Commercial Cham-
pionship has seen a number
of corporate sponsors coming
on board with the main ones
such as Bosai Minerals, DDL


(under its Pepsi & Gatorade
Brands), Cozabs Auto
Spares, A&R Collision and
Oats Fashions.
These sponsors are all ex-
pected to be there for the kick
off with the third-place game
between losing semifinalists Sil-
ver Shattas and Winners Con-
nection at 18:00 h and the final
involving Net Rockers and Club
Rusal at 20:00 h.
It is expected that sponsors'
representatives will be intro-
duced to both teams before the
final which will be played at
20:30 h. The third place play-
off game between Silver Shattas
and Winners Connection is set
for 18:00 h.
All four clubs have
been picked along with
Bakewell Topp XX to con-
test this year's 18th Kashif
and Shanghai Football
championship which starts
on Sunday, December 16,
with the opening at the
MSC ground in Linden.

UEFA rules Euro

2008 players must

have cardiac check
By Mike Collett
LUCERNE, (Reuters) Every player involved in Euro 2008
must undergo cardiac screening before the finals next June,
UEFA's general secretary David Taylor said yesterday.
UEFA also ruled that the official team doctor would be re-
quired to sit in the dugout alongside the coach and the rest of
the squad during matches.
"All possible precautions must be taken to ensure the safety
of the players," Taylor told reporters at the end of a two-day,
meeting of UEFA's executive committee before today's draw
for next year's finals
"Every player must have a cardiac screening and it is the
responsibility of the national associations' medical experts to-
ensure their players are tested.
"They will also have to decide what action they will take if
for any reason a player fails a test."
There have been a number of heart-related deaths
among.young footballers at senior level in recent
The best known case is that of Cameroon's Marc-Vivien
Foe who collapsed during Cameroon's 1-0 victory against Co-
lombia in a Confederations Cup match in June 2003 in Lyon,
France, and died shortly afterwards.
Since then there have been at least six sudden deaths in-
volving professional footballers, most of them found to be heart-
The most recent case involved Sevilla midfielder Antonio
Puerta who died on August 28, three days after collapsing dur-
ing a Primera Liga match against Getafe.
Team doctors usually sit on the bench but until now com-
petition rules have not obliged them to do so.
The committee also agreed that giant screens could show
live match action in the stadium.
Taylor said that, for the first time at a European cham- :
pionship, the match action could be shown but that no con-
troversial incidents would be replayed.

KOLKATA, India (Reuters) -
India ran up an imposing
first-innings total of 616 for
five declared on the second
day and grabbed an early
wicket to take a grip on the
second Test against Pakistan
Vangipurappu Laxman and
Sourav Ganguly joined Wasim
Jaffer in the list of centurions
before Anil Kumble trapped
Yasir Hameed lbw to leave the
visitors at 50 for one at stumps.
Opener Salman Butt and
stand-in captain Younis Khan
were at the crease on 26 and
three respectively when poor
light stopped play.
Laxman struck 112 not out
after Ganguly followed Jaffer's
double hundred with his first
century on his home ground to
pile on the agony for Pakistan.
Left-hander Ganguly
cracked 102 and shared in a
163-run stand for the fifth
wicket with Laxman after
opener Jaffer (202) fell

shortly after reaching his
double century.
Jaffer, on 192 overnight,
struck two boundaries off fast
bowler Shoaib Akhtar to achieve
the second double hundred of
his career in style after the
hosts resumed at 352 for three.
Jaffer, who shared in two
century partnerships on Friday,
was caught by Kamran Akmal
off Sohail Tanvir's first ball of
the day.

Ganguly and Laxman made
no mistakes as they raced to
their 14th and 11th centuries re-
Nippy Tanvir troubled
Laxman with his deliveries early

LOCAL telecommunications
giant Guyana Telephone and
Telegraph Company (GT&T),
through its Marketing Direc-
tor Wystan Robertson, yester-
day pledged a substantial con-
tribution towards the staging
of the 18th edition of the
Kashif and Shanghai (K&S)
football tournament which
kicks off on December 16 with
the march past of participating
teams and the much antici-
pated Georgetown versus Lin-
den affair at the Mackenzie
Sports Club ground.
Addressing members of the
media as well as representatives
of the 16 participating teams,
Robertson disclosed that
GT&T will be contributing fi-
nancially and otherwise to en-
sure that this year's tournament
becomes a success despite the
many problems faced by the
He added that it will be
eight consecutive years that
GT&T will be contributing to
the staging of the tournament

Findlay, a former captain of
the Combined and Windward
Islands, believes that the admin-
istrators of the game have failed
to provide the leadership of high

failed to deliver the appropri-
ate development programme
that is required to propel the
game into the modern era,
where cricket has evolved
from an amateur status to a
high! professional and sci-

which is the biggest and best
organised tournament on the
country's football calendar, and
that their sponsorship proves
that GT&T is serious about the
development of the country's
Robertson said GT&T,
a major sponsor of the tourna-
ment, applauds the organizers
for organising this year's tour-
nament which contributes to the
moral and spiritual development
of the country's youths.
He said his company is
always ready to invest in this
type of activity that helps to
uplift the country's youths
and reminisced on his youth-
ful days in Trinidad & To-
bago when he played football.
He said with Guyanese
Shawn Beveney being called to
try-out for a number of English
football clubs, he hopes his
(Beveney) performance will
open the doors for other
Guyanese to be called and se-
lected to play in the English
Premier League.
Robertson wished Beveney
the best and hopes that he will

entitle one.
Findlay also slammed the
players for failing to grasp the
importance of their socio-eco-
nomic existence after cricket.
"Therefore, they have not
taken the responsibility for the
development of their game, and
beyond that, their personal ad-
vancement as human beings to
prepare them to play important
roles, in the long-term social and
economic development of their
respective territories., and by ex-

be a role model for other
Guyanese youths.

press briefing, representa-
tives of the 16 participating

was no doubt that the WICB

not made a greal enough effort
to agree on and implement de-

"The success of any such

equivocal endorsement of all

their total commitment to its
implementation," he said.

It is high quality contemporary works of art creative
literature, visual art, film, music, etc emerging from specific
nations which come to outline and define their national
identity. The earlier antique works begin to appear in
societies, the stronger and quicker is the basis for their
evolving national identities to emerge. This was the case with
Mediterranean Europe Greece and Rome, but also China
and Japan; India's national identity also had strong cultural
roots, but traditional religious definitions of culture restricted
its progression. The Pre-Columbian civilizations of Mexico,
Central America and South America also provided a fertile
basis for the productive societies and national identities of
Latin America today, whose contemporary artists are
recognized as some of the best in the world.
The concept of the New World of the Americas was a Latin
idea shared by Italy, Spain, Portugal, and France. This concept was
idealized in philosophic essays by Montaigne, Rosseau, Voltaire,
Chateaubriand, among others. It recognized that South America
would introduce new national and cultural identities into the world
because it had remained a "lost" or largely unknown continent, iso-
lated from the rest of the world until the 15th century. Those who
came into the Americas from the Old World thousands of years
before the arrival of Europeans never returned to tell of their dis-
So when we speak of a Guyanese identity, and Guyanese cul-
ture today, we are speaking of something whose roots lie in native
indigenous cultures, but whose family tree represents a powerful
integration of diverse fertile cultural influences.

One of the main purposes of contemporary artists has been to
continually discover or invent creative styles in writing, painting,
sculpture, film theatre, dance ,etc. which explore their nation's
identity. This is neither an easy or instantly popular task, since
populations or citizens are busy with other daily mundane labours
of day to day living; but in so far as they aspire to social pleasures
and meaning within the societies in which they live, they are open
to styles of art which will make them identify with the national
potential for intellectual progress, and the social pleasures that
come with it. It is works of art by individual artists that first rise
to this task. It is their styles of presentation which "turn on" fel-
low citizens, awakening their pride in themselves as a collective
national identity, and this in turn becomn6s visible, attractive, and
interesting to foreign nations and societies, returning various ben-
efits to the nation on the whole.
There are several outstanding examples of Guyanese artists
whose works represent and demonstrate the emergence of the
Guyanese identity. One such artist is the uniquely gifted folk singer/
guitarist David Campbell, an Amerindian whose father Stephen
Campbell was the first Amerindian Member of Parliament in the
era of British Guiana in the 1950's. Amazingly, Campbell's songs,
despite being firmly evocative of Guyana's hinterland and its ter-
restrial/cosmic features, made him quite popular in the 1960's and
70's when he lived, performed ,and recorded several albums (now
classics) in Stockholm, and London, before moving to Toronto
in the 70's, where he became involved in Native Canadian Indian
communities. Campbell's style is simple: he stands with his acous-

Ask (Part 3)

tic guitar and sings, using deft
.2 Ifoot movements .To see him per-
form is unforgettable. The entire
-" *''aura he projects when he per-
S".forms reeks of Guyana's terres-
trial identity as he sings lines like:
"Rock me rock me santapee like
the wind through the Mora tree,
roll me roll me santapee..." etc.
One of the keys to Campbell's
musical genius and his ability to
capture the Guyanese identity, is
his wise use of a feminine chorus
made up of Amerindian, mestizo
and mullata Guyanese girls
whose voices seem to be as divine
BY TERENCE ROBERTm as hinterland breeze. The chorus,
rooted in Amerindian tribal tra-
ditions Shanties sung by multi-
racial Guyanese porknockers or diamond seekers around camp
fires, and in rural coastal villages, is a forgotten musical tradition
ignored by recent Guyanese musicians who follow foreign trends,
blind to what lies within Guyana to be progressively utilised.
Whereas in Brazil, the chorus, taken from Amerindian, African,
andi European roots, has been put to progressive use in a modem
way, giving birth to the world -famous Bossa Nova beat and
diverse styles of new Brazilian Pop music, which is an expres-
sion of the Brazilian identity that is no longer a copy of
Amerindian, African,or European canons, but a combined progres-
sion of all.
We should not feel that similar progressions have not oc-
curred among Guyanese artists, even though they arie often
ignored, or overlooked in favour of less progressive creative
styles. One of the best contemporary musical groups ever to
emerge out of Guyana, is BRASS CONSTRUCTION, the most
internationally famous group of Pop/instrumental musicians
who found a vibrant infectious musical sound and vocals to
exemplify their. Guyanese identity whether performing and
recording in the USA or Europe. Again it is the chorus that is
used, but it is the band members themselves who provide the
chorus as they dance, swinging their trumpets, saxes, guitars
and bass, to the soaring voice of lead singer Randy Mueller,
who used to ride around Georgetown dressed like the latin

What men should know

about Women's Bodies

By P.S. Thakur
Women are wiser than men because they know less and un-
derstand more James Stephens: "The Crock of Gold"
Generally men know less than they think they know about
women's bodies. Women are more informed and more in tuned.
Sexual illiteracy both sexes suffer from sexual illiteracy but
women are more knowledgeable and have better ways of overcom-
ing it. Much of the sexual information (e.g. magazines) are targeted
to women. Women see their gynecologists more often than men visit
their doctors on the average. Men think they know and do not
seek out the information as women do.
It is not how often but how you make love: Women want to
talk more about preliminaries. The touching, the hugging, the kiss-
ing are more important to women than to men They may not use
the word "foreplay" or "love play". There is a difference be-

tween a physical experience and an emotional one. "It's more about
making love than having sex."
Sexual Fantasies -Men and women differ in their sexual fanta-
sies. Males tend to fantasize on specific past experiences.* They
imagine exciting erotic events of their own sex lives. Women. on
the other hand. have "with fantasies". events that they are yet to
Fantasy is an important adjunct to intimacy of the here and
now experience. Women are generally more open-minded about what
areas of a man's body are sexy, while men may be preoccupied
with their genitals. Women think men should pay more attention
to their hands and how they use them. Early sex education plays a
significant role in what body parts are important.
The myth of the perfect female body: Men incorrectly tend to
take a picture of the perfect female bodies from sexy movies or
magazines. Women who subscribe to this media image feel they must

Women need intimacy more than men realize: Sexual relation-
ship without intimacy is like driving a car with the brakes on. Mar-
riage counselors advise that couples and men in particular, to pay
attention to the atmosphere of the relationship. Modern marriages
have higher expectations than those of previous generations. Some-
times it is useful to back off from each other temporarily and re-
connect somewhere in the middle of expectations
Being honest: Men are usually not honest about knowing little
about a woman's body. Men need to understand about a woman's
feeling about her own body; she fluctuates from day to day. Be-
cause she feels good about herself in one way at one time does not
mean that she will feel the same at another time; women are often
willing to share with their partners what makes them feel good at
any one time.
Men affect women's health more than either is aware: Women
are more likely to be infected from sexually transmitted diseases. A
woman would like a man to know about yeast infection, what it
means, and why tonight is not a good time. The symptoms of these
diseases in men are more subtle and can be readily ignored. A minor
infection such as urethritis may be present for years, but he is not
aware of it, although it can be transmitted during intercourse.
There are numerous items and concerns, subtle and not
so subtle, in an intimate relationship. Only a few are discussed
here. Understanding and sharing these concerns enhance qual-
ity of the relationship while sustaining physical and mental

cowboy film character Django,in those days when
Georgetown's paves and streets hummed with fashion and
style, not criminality. Bumble, Brass Construction's en-
ergetic rhythmic keyboard player, was once the leader of
his Georgetown band, BUMBLE & THE SAINTS, which
practiced each afternoon in a big building at the corner
of Regent and Light Streets, as throngs of fashion con-
scious Guyanese youths limed on the pave outside .Brass
Construction is Guyanese music of a high professionalism, and
the unmistakable Guyanese voice of Mueller and others sepa-
rates it from simply being American Funk, while lyrics in songs
like "Sweet as sugar" and "Got myself together" among oth-
ers ,testify that the Guyanese identity is both a personal and
collectively constructive influence. Neither Campbell's or Brass
Construction's musical styles can be dismissed as past trends;
they are beyond trends, because they explore and present pe-
rennial Guyanese values of identity.
On the other hand, it was Guyanese abstract painters
Aubrey Williams and Cletus Henriques who, after their for-
mative young years of essaying figurative paintings based
on Guyanese folk tales, history, folk dances, and styles
of working class life, firmly entered the hallowed domain
of abstraction, inspired by Guyana's physical and cosmic
terrestrial makeup. By removing the human figure as a
naturalistic feature from their works, Williams and
Henriques appealed to neither the ethnic, racial, or class
values of any Guyanese, or anyone from anywhere for
that matter. Only the ability of human vision to recognize
and appreciate the harmony of structures, colours, tones,
lines, spots and spaces offering lessons of human iden-
tity on the level of non-exploitative, pleasurable quali-
ties, concerned their abstract works. Yet both artists
utilised creative methods linked to specific cultures; Wil-
liams used Pre-Columbian native motifs in a progres-
sive manner, and also Tachism, an Oriental mastery of
the painted spot, where his paint was rubbed and
scrambled to evoke rocks, water, sunlight, earth, etc; in
short the elements.Henriques used impasto,the tech-
nique of applying thick paint with a knife, as in stucco
masonry mastered in Mediterranean European nations
like Italy, Spain, Portugal, the latter country from which
Henriques' ancestors came to British Guiana. Neverthe-
less the abstract paintings of Henriques hark back to noth-
ing in Portugal, but only to the Guyanese and South
American landscape, and mineral qualities found be-
neath the region's soil, or even rivers and seas, also
mountains. Henriques transferred the lessons he learnt
from jewelry design into painting, creating unforgettable
magical abstract works inspired by gold, silver, diamonds,
quartz etc, isolated in beautiful calm monochromatic
spaces of bright sunlight, falling dusk, etc, in precious
canvasses which exemplify some of the highest contem-
plative and unifying values of the Guyanese identity.
This too is not a passing trend in Guyanese painting by
Williams and Henriques, but a stimulus to further ex-
ploration and manifestation of the Guyanese identity by
today's artists.

'The Conch Shell', a recently completed memoir
by Maggie Harris, gives a candid look into the
first seventeen years of her life in British Guiana.
Harris was born in 1954 in New Amsterdam, Berbice. New
Amsterdam has spawned some of the most significant Guyanese
writers, including Wilson Harris, E. R. Braithwaite and Edgar
Mittelholzer. Her father was James Harris who was a Captain and
then Commodore for the Reynolds Metals Company on the tugs
working on the Kwakwani River taking bauxite down to Everton.
Her mother, Elizabeth, was bornmin Buxton, East Coast Demerara.
Maggie Harris started her formal education at a primary school
before moving to a convent in New Amsterdam. At eleven, she won
a Reynolds scholarship to St Rose's High School in Georgetown.
Unable to take full advantage of this scholarship, she returned to
her birthplace where she completed her formal education at Berbice
High School. Here, she confessed with delight, she received an ex-
cellent and well-rounded education which exposed her to and in-
creased her thirst for art and literature. Her artistic inclination was
encouraged by Stanley Greaves, a leading Caribbean artist, and her
drawings found an outlet in her school's magazine. Literature was
enhanced by her teachers and by VSOs who knew the role litera-
ture plays in the development of a nation. Her good grades at Gen-

I ended my marriage after 15
I've been separated for five
years and haven't dated anyone. I
really had no interest in dating. In
July I met the father of my son's
friend. He, too, is separated and has
been for four years.
In his case. his wife ended
the marriage. He was devas-
tated. He indicated at one time
he could never go through that
again. His son lives with him,



and since the boys are together
all the time, we talk often.
We've become good friends and
enjoy talking to each other.
I'm becoming attracted to
him. He has all the qualities I
look for. He has a wonderful
personality, a sense of humor,
and closeness to his family. He
is interesting and kind. I find it
hard to decide if he is attracted
to me but afraid of getting in-
volved with anyone, or not at-

traced to me at all.
We have not yet gone on a
date. He did invite my two
boys and me to his camp this
summer for the day, and had the
boys and I to his camp for
Thanksgiving dinner with some
of his family. While talking to
him the next day, I told him the
boys had a great time, and he
asked if I had as well.

tors and managing them by using physical, dental, and behavioral
therapies. At this time, most authorities are in agreement that all
therapies should be reversible and conservative. Irreversible therapy
is seldom recommended.
The complexity of the head and neck and the potential for nu-
merous pathological conditions that can cause pain makes it man-
datory for the health provider to consider carefully all possible an-
swers to the patient's problem. Clinicians should begin by taking a
detailed medical/dental history and a physical examination to rule
out any medical disorders (systemic diseases that manifest in the
head). If the results are negative, the next Step is to rule out any
dental problems (e.g. filling or root can4l therapy is needed, peri-
odontal disease, ect.) that could be causing the pain. If these re-
sults are negative, then the clinician should examine the temporo-
mandibular joint, keeping in mind that joirit 'clicking noises" do not
necessarily eliminate other structures as the cause of symptoms.
A diagnosis of masticatory pain can only be considered after
all other options have been exhausted. Muscle splinting is an ap-
propriate diagnosis if pain begins from the date of a placement of a
restoration or prosthesis (i.e. full or partial denture). Acute myosi-
tis is considered if there has been a recent trauma to the face, as
long as infection, a systemic disease, or a jaw fracture has been
ruled out as the problem. When pain ha4 been present more than a
month, a tentative diagnosis of myofascial pain.or masticatory my-
.algia-may be appropriate.
Chronic pain can be treated with several reversible procedures
physical therapy (including massage), ultrasound, acupuncture, ap-
plication of moist heat or ice to the area, prescribing anti- inflam-
matory agents, electrical electroo galvanic) stimulation, active and
passive exercises of the affected areas, spraying with an aerosol
skin coolant in combination with stretch techniques to treat trigger
points, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), and bio-
feedback. The most common treatment for chronic pain is a flat
pane splint that covers the entire.arch.
It is a well-accepted fact that the diagnosis of chronic facial pain
is difficult, and once it has been diagnosed, it is always best to take
the conservative, reversible approach to treatment.


SURVEY 2007/2008
NOVEMBER 2007 to MARCH 2008
The Bureau of Statistics, supported by the Ministry of Finance, will be undertaking
an exercise to rebase Guyana's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The GDP is the
measure of goods and services produced by the economy. This requires executing
a survey among our businesses to provide us with the necessary data.
Why an economic survey? Guyana's economy has undergone significant
changes in the last several years and a survey that will help to describe
Guyana's current economic profile is long overdue. This is a significant
step forward for Guyana, as the last major economic survey was done in
Why should businesses.cooperate?It is an opportunity for participating businesses to
help usiprovide data, which the business community itself can use to speak with
authority, to policymakers. While many persons have opinions on economic
.condi sand trends, it is only when actual data is available for analysis that
definitivestatements canbenmade. Our goal is to provide such data.
How exactly can this data help? Here are some of the ways in which the economic data
obtained from this survey can be used:

By the Private Sector:
studying industries for
possible investment purposes
determining which goods
and services are producedin Guyana
lobbying for concessions,

Boys and Girls,
Hope you had a great week at school. So far we have completed quite a lot on fractions. We will
now move on to decimals.

We will begin with decimals as fractions.
Can you remember the factors of ten? These factors are 1, 2, 5 and 10.
Say the factors of 100.
Did you say 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50 andlO?
What are five multiples of 10 and five multiples of 100?
Multiples of 10: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 .....
Multiples of 100: 100, 200, 300, ...
Look carefully at these fractions V2, 1/5, 3/10, 4/25, 7/100
What have you observed with the denominators?
The denominators are factors of 10 or multiples of 10.

I When multiplying decimals you count
the number ofplaces in the numbers
then you place the same number of
places in the answer

1.5 ..1 decimal place
x 1.33 .1 decimal place
1.95---- 2 decimal places

Own your own
1. 0.7 x 0.5 2. 12.8 x 2.4
Did you come up with; 1.0.35 2. 30.72 3. 13.14
You are correct!!

3. 14.6 x 0.9

Multiply by 10.

Fractions can also be written as decimals
eg: 1/10 =0.1 1/1

1 cannot be divided by 10 = 1
So you place a point after the
one and a zero then divide

0 = 1+ 10
0) 1.0

Multiply by 100

Similarly 1/100 = 0. 01
1/100= 1 + 100
= 100) 1.00
We say the decimal 0.1 zero decimal one
0.6 zero decimal six
Let's look at 2/10, 3/10 and 7/10

To multiply a decimal
by 10, move the
decimal point one
place to the right

I To multiply a decimal by 100,
move the decimal point two
places to the right /
X ....... ............................................ /

0.5 x 10 =5

On your own try these:
1. 0.6x10 3.6.72x100
2. 7.2x10 4.7.6x100

0.2 -- zero decimal pwo
0.3 -- zero decimal three
0.7 --- zero decimal seven

Check your responses with your friend

On your own write these as decimals
Did you get; 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.8, 0.9.

Exercise A
1. (a) 11/10
(b) 13/10
2. (a) 6/100
(b) 7/100

(c) 15/10
(d) 132/10
(c) 12/100
(d) 15/100

Add and Subtract decimals
Study these examples:
(a) 0.5 + 0.9 = 0.5
+ 0.9

When multiplying decimals the product takes the number of places
as the number and the multiplier.

Well Done!!

Exercise A
a. 0.38x10
b. 2.59x100
c. 637x0.5

(e) 175/10

(e) 19/100

d. 8.92x 0.8
e. 1031x1.6
f. 35.38x0.12

clearly fell within the realm of the jury. What eventuated was a manifest miscarriage of
justice in a situation where the evidence for the prosecution was crystalline, comprehensive,
and compulsively cogent", Massiah said.
He added "I have had the advantage of reading in advance the opinion prepared by Bishop JA,
and I agree with the conclusions at which he has arrived. In my considered judgment the submission
"no case" ought to have been rejected.
In his opinion Justice of Appeal Bishop had said "Three years ago a question, similar to
the one raised now, and also requiring an examination of circumstantial evidence, was
considered by the Court (Massiah C. Fung-a-Fatt and Vieira JJA) in The State v Alvin Mitchell
(1984) 39 WIR 185, by virtue of section 32A of the Court of Appeal Act.
"The response given then is appropriate in the instant discussion, and it is to be regretted that the
wise words of Chancellor Massiah, who gave the leading judgment of the court, were not considered,
at the trial of Cecil Levine, to guide the arguments and influence the trial judge's ruling. As in Mitchell's
case, so here, the "no case" submission of defence counsel, should not have been upheld.
At Mitchell's trial, the evidence was that the accused, the driver of a land rover, professed
(at 3.oo a.m.) to be in a desperate hurry to reach his destination. However, subsequent events
established the antithesis of that and demanded of him an explanation to the jury, for the
death of 30-year old Nastawantee Persaud, whose semi-nude, dead body was found some hours
later, in a clump of bushes. It suggested that she had been brutally beaten and raped. The
accused had been the last person in whose company the woman had been seen alive .
He had promised to get her home earlier than her two female companions, with whom she had
been walking.
The three women were night-club waitresses who, at first, had all rejected the accused's offer
of a lift home, but eventually the deceased reluctantly joined the vehicle in the sincere expectation of
swift conveyance to her home .
Her colleagues, on foot, reached home ahead of her for the simple reason that the accused drove
in a direction away from her residence, as soon as he had surreptitiously sent the other passenger (a
male) on a false errand into another night club..
Forty-five minutes -later the accused returned without the deceased said nothing about her but
announced to his merry colleagues that they were to drive back forthwith to the village (12 miles
away) from which he had earlier taken them that night. That they did. But in a few hours, the
accused left camp for Georgetown some 85 miles away, where he was arrested.
After he had been in custody for the greater part of three days, Mitchell claimed (for the first
time) that the deceased had fallen out of his vehicle and met her death. There was no suggestion that
police conduct towards him had been improprietous .
Significantly he had not given that account to any of his colleagues, not even to de Florimonte, the
person to whom he had spoken, when he was setting out for Georgetown, What is more, his
colleagues denied the accused's further claim that he had shown them the deceased's body on the road-
way, during their return journey to the village.
In spite of such an impressive array of facts, the trial judge held that there was no case for the
accused to answer. Our Court of appeal was appalled at the ruling and saw fit to review a wide range
of authorities starting with R v Hookoomchand and Sagur and ending with R v Galbraith.
Justice of Appeal Bishop said that a trial judge ought to have sent the case to the jury where in his
opinion there is sufficient evidence upon which a reasonable jury, properly directed, might convict.
But unlike the Mitchell case, he stressed that the trial judge ought, on the other hand, to
withdraw the case, if the evidence is so unsatisfactory or unsound (established through Cross-
examination or otherwise) that no reasonable jury could convict on it or if the evidence,
even if all is believed is so weak, tenuous or insufficient, that it cannot yield a lawful convic-

Thai King

THE King wore a pink shirt and jacket when leaving hospital.

sparks pink
(BBC News) Clothing stores in Thailand have seen a rush to
buy pink shirts, thanks to a fashion craze sparked by the
country's King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Thais have been queuing in their hundreds to buy the shirts
ever since the King left hospital last month wearing both a pink
shirt and blazer.
The Phufa fashion chain said it had sold 40,000 pink shirts this
"Our factory is making these shirts every day, every
minute day and night," said a spokeswoman for the com-
"We had no idea they would be this popular."
King Bhumibol spent three weeks in hospital last month hav-
ing treatment for heart problems and other ailments.
Thai commentators said pink first became an important colour
for him earlier this year, when royal astrologers determined it was
a good colour for his health.
On that recommendation, a pink royal crest was designed for
his 80th birthday on 5 December.
Civil servant Rose Tarin, 56, recently camped outside a cloth-

shirt craze
ing store from 4am to ensure she was able to buy one of the latest
shipments of pink shirts.
"Wearing pink brings the king luck. I don't want him to be sick."
she said.
The King, who has traditionally always worn dark suits in pub-
lic, has now also taken to wearing a range of other brightly coloured
This has led to Thai newspapers predicting runs on green and
blue shirts.
The world's longest serving monarch, King Bhumibol is regarded
by some as semi-divine and his picture hangs in most Thai homes.
Although he has no official political role, he is seen as the
country's moral authority.
Last year he helped to restore calm following the military coup.
The rush for pink shirts is not the first fashion craze he has
Since King Bhumibol's 60th anniversary on the throne in
2006, many Thais have worn bright yellow shirts every Mon-
day, because that was the day of the week on which he was

rear poultry.
For the five weeks or so that
they will take to turn over a
batch of chickens for sale, they
will be rewarded with a stipend,
which will be handed over to
them at the end of their jail term.
The money from the sale of the
poultry goes into a revolving

Its work has shifted in a ma-

needy families.,
The organization com-
menced it housing project in
2004, when it became evident
that providing building mate-

In other branches around
the world, a housing a project

20' by 15' houses for poor
families here. Donors were
found and the project got off
the ground.
To date, the organization has

KENNEDY feels the pain as the needle goes in.


(BBC News) Around one million Zambians 16% of the popu-
lation are believed to have HIV/Aids, a fact marked by World
Aids Day yesterday.
After experts from the United Nations backed male circumci-
sion as a way of reducing the chances of getting HIV, the BBC's
reporter in Zambia's capital Lusaka, Kennedy Gondwe, decided to
undergo the procedure himself.
It should be noted that this was Mr Gondwe's personal deci-
sion, not the BBC's, and that circumcision does not give immunity
to HIV/Aids.
Today is a very special day for me. I've just woken up and am
going for an HIV test prior to my circumcision.
I have been thinking about being circumcised from the time that
I was young, but unfortunately I have not had time to do it.
I have always wanted to be circumcised as a way of fighting
the HIV/Aids scourge.
After reading a lot about circumcision, I am convinced that it is
indeed a preventative measure for HIV/Aids.
I know already that the chances of me being HIV-negative are
very high, because I go for these tests three or four times a year.
I have not gone for one this year, but I know I have not in-
dulged in any risky behaviour, so I am not particularly nervous
about the result, but I do wonder what people are going to make of
my story.
One thought that is bothering me is that I don't know if I will
be able to drive for the next day or cwo because of the pain that
will be between my legs.
But that is the choice I have had to make.
The test itself is a little painful I could feel it.
My results are ready soon after the test. They are negative, as
In the male circumcision room, there are two beds. These
are what men rest on after the operation until they are ener-
getic enough to go back home.
With me is Boniface Chikumbe, the male circumcision provider.
"The details of the procedure are quite elaborate," he tells me.
"One of the first stages is to prepare the surface we are going
to work on by cleaning it with an antiseptic solution.
"After that we are going to mark the exact area where we are
cut off the foreskin. That will be preceded by giving you a local
"After that we will cut off the foreskin, stitch together the cut
areas, and bandage you to prevent any bleeding."
I am taken through to the theatre and lie down on a couch. The
anaesthetic needle is inserted into the base of my penis.
The needle hurts. But when they cut, I do not feel a thing.
I see my foreskin. It looks ugly, with a lot of blood all over it.
Thirty minutes later, they are done, and I am sent to the recov-
ery room.
I ask Boniface how I should look after the wound.
"When you get home, look out for any incidences of blood, of
swelling or of pain," he says.
Walking to the car, I feel strong enough to drive home.
I am very amazed and impressed at how quickly I find myself
recovering as I drive hn -'
The only differ foreskin has gone forever.
But it is something ': u prepared myself for. and I have
no regrets at all.
Later, on BBC World Service's Outlook programme, Dr Tim
Farley of the World Health Organisation explained that the reason
circumcised men have a lower rate of HIV infection is that the tis-
sue on the inside of the foreskin is very fragile, and therefore vul-
nerable to minor tears or abrasions during sex.
It is through these tears that HIV can get into the blood.
"Removing this part of the skin therefore reduces the risk of
infection quite considerably. iarley said.
However, he also str-. ,d diat circumcised men are not immune
to the virus.
"They have to take other precautions in addition to circi- ci-
ion in order to avoid HIV infection."
These include wearing condoms, reducing the number (f
sexual partners, and ensuring prompt and effective treatment
is sought for any sexual transmitted infections, he added.

Mining of sand
From Georgetown you travel the East Bank of Demerara Highway to reach
Soesdyke. At this point Linden Highway begins.
You will notice at tif6 side of the highway huge sand pits. The sale of sand is a
thriving business.

Making of Charcoal
Along the highway you will notice men cutting trees and bags of charcoal packed
at the side of the highway. This charcoal will be taken to Georgetown to be sold.
How charcoal is made?
Trees are cut and chopped into suitable lengths.
They are placed into a hole in the ground called the coal pit
The logs are covered with leaves and sand
They are lighted; the logs are burnt to form charcoal.
It is collected and placed in bags to be sold.

Mining of Bauxite
Bauxite is an important mineral found around Linden. It is found under the earth's
surface about 60 metres under sand and clay.. This mineral is a hard pinkish rock.

The mining of ore
The overburden is removed, to expose the bauxite ore.
The bauxite ore is broken up by the use of explosives.
Pieces of bauxite ore are taken to the plant in railway trucks.
Bauxite after processing is known as calcined bauxite.
It is exported to other countries to make aluminum.
Aluminum is a light metal that is used in industries to make pots and other

For you to do: List six articles made from aluminum.
o Small ships sail up the Demerara River to Linden and load the refined ore.
o It is taken to the deep water harbour in Georgetown for trans-shipment.
o Bauxite mining also takes place at Kwakwani and Aroaima in Berbice area.

The Interior Savannahs
Take a look at the map of the Natural Regions you will see the Interior Savannahs
are found in the south-western part of Guyana next to the Brazilian border.
You know this area consists of rolling grasslands with a few hilly areas.

A savannah is a tropical grassland with scattered trees.
The forested Kanuku Mountains divide the area into two:
The North Savannahs rolling grassland
The South Savannahs hilly
Shiriri, Marudi and Bat Mountains are found in the South Savannahs.

The population is mainly Guyana's indigenous people, the Amerindians who are
farmers and vacqueros one who looks after cattle.
Major economic activities/occupations
o Cattle ranching mainly for beef
o Balata bleeding
o Farming e.g. peanuts
Fishing and hunting
Craft work hammocks, bead work, nibbi furniture and
Leather articles.

This week we are going to move on to the systems of our body.

* The body is perfect in the way it carries out its functions
* The body is made up of many organs


lypo talamus

Name the organs below

-Hip ocampus




The Brain has three main regions:
The brain stem, which merges with the Spinal cord
The cerebellum
The cerebrum, which contains the two cerebral hemispheres. The cerebrum makes
up 90% of the brain.
The brain is protected by the Skull, which encases it.

The Spinal Cord
o The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that connects the brain to other parts of the
o It is protected by a series of doughnut-shaped bones called vertebrae, which sur-
round the spinal cord

The Nerve

These organs that our body possesses do not work independently but work in groups to
form the organ systems.
Our body has systems that are responsible for the proper functioning of the human sys-

Some of the major organ systems are:
* Nervous
* Circulatory
* Digestive

Let's now look at the Nervous System
1. .The Nervous System enables us to know what is happening around us and makes
us think and reason.
2. This system is made up of the brain, the spinal cord and the nerves.
3. 'The nervous system is consistently: at work day and night
4. All the other system depends on it to function properly.

Glimpsing Nigeria's

digital lifeline

(BBC News) Until recently there was nothing that marked out
Galadima primary school as anything out of the ordinary.
The government-run school, flanked by a red dust road on the
outskirts of Abuja, Nigeria, taught about 300 pupils who congre-.
gated from the surrounding rural area.
But in March this year,.the scruffy primary became part of a
remarkable experiment. It was the first in Africa to.get its hands on
the so-called $100 -laptop, a rugged device aimed at helping chil-
dren in the developing world get the most from their education.
The tough machines, conceived by the US-based One Laptop
per Child (OLPC) group, were designed to replace dog-eared text
books and traditional teaching.
The school was given around 300 of the low-cost laptops along
with a satellite internet link known as VSAT, a power generator
and solar panels. The idea-was to see if the machines would sur-
vive the ultimate test: children.
"We wanted to bring the laptops to an environment where the
kids would drop it, put it in water and do everything you wouldn't
want to do to a normal laptop," explained Ayo Kusamotu, a law-
yer and volunteer with OLPC Nigeria, an independent group set-
up to support OLPC in Nigeria.
The hardware trial ran for five months.
"We've actually learned a lot from that trial really.siniple
things that are almost mundane but important," explained Walter
Bender ofOLPC.
"For example, some of the desks in Galadimina are at anangle
and we learned that you've got to put rubber feet on the laptop
otherwise it will slide off. So now production laptops have rubber
Although, the trial has now ended OLPC Nigeria has con-
tinued to fund and support the school's use of the computers.
It remains one of just a handful of places in the world where
the OLPC vision can be seen "in the wild" and visiting it is
an uplifting experience.
The children most of whom had never seen a computer be-:
fore March have clearly.embraced the green and white machines.

Even before entering the school grounds, visitors are accosted i
,.by hordes of, animated children waving their laptops, eager to show !
what they can do with them.
: Children stream from doorways and alleys wanting to take
a "snap" with the laptop's onboard camera whilst others shoot
Video files and then excitedly show each other the results.
The more studious show off the graphs and pictures they ha4e
drawn and the notes they have typed in class.
There is a clear sense of enjoyment and pride in both owner-
ship and use of the machines.
One girl was even wearing the power cord as a necklace.
And that pride continues through to the packed classrooms -
where up to 90 or 100 pupils are squeezed into one room and' is
evident in both children and teacher.
"It is one of the happiest things that has happened to the
school," Miss Manzo, one of the teachers at the school confided.
"Before, we felt that we were not very important but now we
have the laptop we feel that we have moved ahead."
Not only has it raised the status of the school, she said, but it
has also improved learning at school and the surrounding commu-
"The laptop has brought a great impact to our children," she
said. "It is easier to give notes and assignments and they [the chil-
dren] learn faster."
She added: "But it is not only in the school they make use of
the laptop. They use- it at home and even help to teach their par-
Miss Manzo said that both the children and the teach-
ers had easily learnt how to use the XO laptops, as they
are known.
At the moment the laptops are used to augment the text books
and black boards rather than replace them.
"One of the biggest uses of the laptop is for note-taking in class,"
said Mr Kusamotu.
In addition, he said, teachers use the preloaded encyclopaedia
to teach classes.

THE children are allowed to take the laptops home with
During our visit we saw a lesson on the mammalian eye based
on the preloaded content along with maths lessons that used the
Although there are no numbers that show what effect; if
any, the laptops have had, the teachers remain convinced of
their worth.

Sunday Chronicle December 2. n007

ARIES -- Your divergent personalities -- the kind compromiser and the feisty
rebel -- will be coming together into one powerful unit today. You are connect-
ing all your different objectives into one big project, and the stage is set for you
to make quite a splash on the scene. Get the word out to your friends and family
about what is going on in your life. You'll get some interesting ideas and quite
a few volunteers willing to lend you a hand and give you some moral support.

TAURUS -- Denial can be a powerful force in your life, but it is seldom a
positive one. Be extra careful right now to see things are they truly are and
accept them that way. Pretending everything will be fine is not the right way
to handle a troublesome situation. Finding a way to make everything fine is
the right way to handle a troublesome situation. There is nothing wrong with
positive thinking, just make sure that you are not fooling yourself about
whafs what.

GEMINI-- Your intuitive feelings are definitely helpful in many life situations,
but right now they might be distracting you from focusing on one important
project or relationship. Constantly checking in with yourself about how you're
feeling about this, that or the other thing is a waste of your energy and you are
going to need a lot of energy today! So turn off the spigot of your subconscious
and just keep your mind focused on the task at hand. You'll be glad you did.

CANCER -- Why waste time being modest about your achievements when a
little bit of tooting your own horn would take you so much farther? People
appreciate someone who knows their worth, so show the folks around you
today that you know you are hot stuff! Denying that fact and fishing around
for compliments or encouragement will annoy more people than it will impress.
No one wants to be expected to boost your ego. You have to do it. And to start,
you should admit it when you've hit a home run!

LEO -- If a conflict erupts today, you have to speak openly and honestly. This
is not the time to circle the wagons and get defensive. Open up and speak your
mind. Be totally honest about the fact that you want everyone to stay happy.
Maintain good will among the group. A compromise will take time to arrange,
but it will make everyone happier in the end. There is a way to solve this
problem without asking anyone to sacrifice anything. You just need the pa-
tience to find it.

VIRGO -- Despite a fairly calm and quiet beginning, today could end up being
a massive turning point for you. It all depends on who ybu are around today.
Romantic prospects or current partners can influence your receptiveness, so
try to keep all correspondence highbrow and upbeat. The less distracted you
are, the more likely you'll be able to recognize an unusual invitation or proposal.
A door is opening, so get ready to stick your foot in it to keep it from slamming
shut again.

LIBRA -- Despite a fairly calm and quiet beginning, today could end up being
a massive turning point for you. It all depends on who you are around today.
Romantic prospects or current partners can influence your receptiveness, so
try to keep all correspondence highbrow and upbeat. The less distracted you
are, the more likely you'll be able to recognize an unusual invitation or proposal.
A door is opening, so get ready to stick your foot in it to keep it from slamming
shut again.

SCORPIO -- You have often been warned not to get your hopes up too high,
but if you stop to think about it, what would be so wrong with that right now?
Your positive thinking has made things happen in the past, so who is to say
that it might not work again? As long as you don't sign any legal documents or
commit any money toward something that isn't yet certain, there is nothing
wrong with devoting your mental energy to being in a hopeful state. Just don't
lose sight of reality.

SAGITTARIUS -- There is a lot of potential for rewarding verbal communica-
tion today, so it's a great time for getting together with a friend or two and
talking about big ideas. Sharing your hopes and dreams is always good fun,
but together you may be able to cook up some plans that will actually help make
some of those dreams come true. The best resources for ideas are the people
who care about you the most, so listen when they make a suggestion no
matter how crazy it may be.

CAPRICORN -- The good news is that your career is about to take a very
exciting turn -- the bad news is that it might also take up a lot more of your
personal time, at least for a while. Your past work issues are all water under the
bridge, and you have learned some very valuable lessons. Things are under
your control like never before! You have proven yourself capable of the re-
sponsibilities you have been given, and everyone is ready to see what you
have to offer!

AQUARIUS -- It's not easy to know who or what needs your attention right now
-- you're so deep in the thick of things that it's difficult to get a good perspective
on what it is you need to get involved with, and what is better left alone. Step
back from your daily grind and just give this time. Sooner or later, it will become
obvious what you need to do. Until then, just go on with your own concerns.
Take care of yourself until it becomes clear who else you should take care of.

PISCES -- Like a stained glass window in a Gothic church, the many colors and
components of who you are right now are coming together to create something
quite breathtaking. You are completing a growth phase and moving away from
a time of great confusion and toward a clearer, simpler way of being. Whether
you realize it or not, you have created a strong philosophy that is informing
your choices. Congratulations on your progress and do not fear memories of
what you have been through.


Tom Cruise has been given a
courage award for his role in
his forthcoming film
Valkyrie at a ceremony in
He was handed the Bambi
award for his portrayal of a
Nazi officer in the film, about a
failed assassination attempt on
dictator Adolf Hitler.
The prize committee
praised the actor for tackling a
story that had never been cov-
ered by Hollywood before.
The Bambis are Germany's
most prestigious media awards,
covering film, television and
Other winners at the cer-
emony in Dusseldorf included
Desperate Housewives star Eva
Longoria for the TV series in-
ternational category.
"I am totally amazed and
blown away every time I get
outside of America how popu-
lar Desperate Housewives is,"
she told reporters.
"For me to be here to accept
this award and be in Germany
and in an international commu-
nity, it's an honour for me."
Italian actress Sophia Loren
also received a lifetime achieve-
ment award a prize she had
previously been honoured with

in 1961 and 1964.
"I love to come back here
for this award because it brings
back so many memories," she

in Nigeria get access to this," said the headmistress of Galadima, Mrs Juliana Okowkno.
However, aspects of digital life at Galadima are not perfect. What are small problems at
one school could become serious issues if, and when, millions of the laptops are rolled out
across the country.
For example, more than 40 of the prototype machines have either been lost, stolen or broken since
March. This has knock-on consequences, meaning that that not every child has a laptop on which to
follow lessons.
In addition, the laptops can be a distraction often pupils play games on their computer rather
than follow the class.
It is also apparent from visiting Galadima the level of support a large-scale roll out of the programme
would require.
Teachers would need to be trained, technicians would need to be on hand to troubleshoot problems
and the laptops and its peripherals would also need maintenance.
Some of the children have learnt how to fix broken keyboards and remove the screens and batter-
ies. They act as engineers for the whole of the school fixing friends laptops as and when needs arise.
But software and infrastructure problems may be more tricky.
For example, the solar chargers strapped to the roof of Galadima school had been not set. up cor-
rectly we were told they were "misaligned" and are useless.
However, perhaps the greatest difficulty that will face schools that follow Galadima is the internet.
Earlier this year, some of the pupils were found to be accessing pornography through the laptops.
Although filters can be added relatively easily, there is a bigger problem and one that is typical of
many developing economies: cost.
"VSAT is still very expensive," said Mr Olanrewaju Oke of internet service provider Accelon.
"For a 1.2m dish and a one watt radio it comes in at about $2,500."
In addition, a 128Kbps connection around a quarter of the speed of a typical broadband connec-
tion is around $350 per month, or $4,200 per year. That is on top of the cost of the laptops -
currently $188 apiece.
During the trial, Accelon provided the connection for free but now the school is on its own and as
a result, the link has been cut although OLPC Nigeria had asked for the internet to be restored during
our visit.
Mr Oke believes that cost will come down in the same way as it did in the mobile phone sector.
He has put forward a long term plan in the event the Nigeria government buys into OLPC that would
see schools sharing a connection.
"We're looking for a situation where we can provide good clean access to these schools for any-
thing from $100 to $150 a month," he said.
"It's a starting point and eventually we would like to get close to where Europe is at 50, 60 or 70
dollars a month."
Without government intervention it is difficult to see how many schools in Nigeria and elsewhere
could afford to get online.
But Mr Kusamotu does not believe it is a problem.
"It is not a stumbling block," he said. "Having the XO, even without the internet, is an
extension of the classroom."

Akon charged after

fan incident
Hip-hop star Akon has been charged by police after a fan said she suffered concussion
when he allegedly threw a teenager off stage, hitting her.
The incident occurred in June at Dutchess Stadium in Fishkill, north of New York City.
The singer is scheduled to appear in court next week on charges of endangering the welfare
of a minor and second-degree harassment.
Injured fan Abby Rosa said she had hired a lawyer over the incident.
Audience members at the concert told Associated Press a spectator lobbed something at
the singer and Akon asked'the crowd to point out the culprit.
A security guard picked out a 15-year-old and sent him up to the stage, where Akon is
said to have picked him up onto his shoulders and threw him into the crowd.
Abby Rosa said the boy landed on her. She told a local newspaper she was later diagnosed
with a concussion.
Akon's lawyer has said there is no basis for criminal charges.
The singer caused controversy in April when he danced provocatively with a teenage girl
onstage in Trinidad.
He later apologised for the incident saying he did not know the girl was underage.

Hello students,
You were told last week that writing notes is one of
the active ways to study. Know now that whether notes
are taken during a lesson, or from a text book, or a dis-
cussion session, just record the important points and use
them for revision and reference. The items you select
for note-taking should be sufficient for you to remem-
ber and to reconstruct the rest of the information.
Begin to write notes; they primarily aid memory. Be
smart.. Do enjoy this issue.
Love you.

The Passage
Thursday came around. She got up and dressed very
quietly to avoid waking Charles, who would have asked
why she was getting ready so early. Then she paced
up and down, or stationed herself at the window to look
out over the square. The dawn light was winding its
way between the market pillars, and in the pale glow
of the sunrise you could read the chemist's names in
block capitals above the closed shutters of his shop.
When the clock said quarter past seven she went
across to the Golden Lion. Art6mise came down yawn-
ing to let her in, and raked out a few embers for Ma-
dame. Then Emma was left alone in the kitchen. From
time to time she strolled outside, where Hivert was har-
nessing the horses in leisurely fashion listening the wile
to Madame Lefrancois, who was thrusting her night-
capped head out of a little window the give him his or-
ders, in a long rigmarole that would have bewildered a
lesser man. Emma tapped the soles of her shores on
the paving stone.
At last, when he had gulped down his soup, shrugged
himself into his driving-coat, lit his pipe and grabbed hold
of his whip, he clambered up and settled himself se-
renely on his box.
The Hirondelle moved off at a gentle trot, stopping
several times in the first two miles to pick up passen-
gers, who stood looking out for it at their garden gates
by the side of the road. Those who had booked seats
overnight kept the coach waiting; some were still in bed.
Hivert called and shouted and cursed, then got down
from his seat to go and hammer on their doors, while
the wind whistled in through the cracked blinds of the

1. Pretend that you are living in a country where
coaches are still being used. Write a letter to a friend
telling him or her about the knds of experiences which
travellers face using them.
2. Follow a long journey carefully and then prepare
notes for a friend who is w::iting at the end of the line
for your arrival. I ait you can make jottings about a
few of the characters among whom y-,u traveled, and
incidents on Lhe highway.
3. Describe what else yoi think Hivert should do to
survive his job daily
4. What is your understanding of t*'e culture from
which Hivert came?
5. Draw what you think the coach Hivert looked
like, or selec;: picture that depicts your image of him.
Then ask a study partner to write a full description of
6. List some of the dishes that you eat for break-

fast. Hivert drank soup.
7. Suppose you are building up Hivert to be one of
your best formulated characters, what other character-
istics would you want him to have, and in what kind of
stories would you wish to have him appear?

Sentence Construction

a) A sentence is a group of words that expresses
a complete thought. Some sentences comprise simple
thoughts while others have complicated ones.

Description of 1-3 above:
o Group 1 has no verb, or complete predicate.
o Group 2 needs a complete verb and a subject.

Reported and Direct Speech
When you read and record what someone has said,
you can, if you wish, quote the actual words. This, of
course, is Direct Speech.
"I'm going to the land meeting next week," said the

".-'- .-'., '. "-. - .' :
:- :,- .. .. .. ., . . .. ,

Out of the mouth of babes
and sucklings hast thou
ordained strength....
PRAYER BOOK (1662) Psalm 8:2

You should note the punctuation, including the use
of inverted commas. However you arrange the quota-
tion, the rules of certain punctuation apply and should
be carefully followed.
"I'm going to the land meeting next week," the ten-
ant said.
She said, "I'm going to the land meeting next week."
If you wish, instead, to report what was said, not giv-
ing the actual words, then you will use Indirect or Re-
ported Speech.
She said that she was going to the land meeting the
following week.

Points to note about indirect or reported
1. Inverted commas are omitted.
2. "She said" is followed by "that", though this
word can be omitted.
3. Present Tense "am going" becomes Past Tense
"was going".
4. First Person "I" becomes Third Person "he",
unless the reporter is reporting his own words.
5. Future "next week" becomes "the following
week". ("Here" would become "there", "now" would
become "then", and so on.

More Examples Direct & Indirect Speech
1. "There are," the speaker claimed, "too many ac-
cidents on the city streets."
The speaker claimed that there were too many ac-
cidents on the city streets.
2. Do you realize that it often costs more money
than it is worth to transport goods from one place in
the hinterland where they are not needed to another than
where they are?" asked the speaker.

The speaker asked whether his audience realized
that it often cost more money than it was worth to trans-
port goods from one place in the hinterland where they
were not needed to another where they were.
(Note that neither inverted commas nor question
marks are used in indirect speech.)

Write the following sentences as either Re-
ported or Direct Speech.
1. Desiree said, "Frank, you always say the wrong
things to Jennifer. Will you never learn?"
2. Harry Simon said the materials were not work-
ing well together, but that the next day they would be
changes in manufacturing.
3. "Up to the end of last week," said George, "the
crew was not up to expectations. That was why they
had three more days of practice this week."
4. We were told by the principal that we were in
for a treat at the jazz concert next month.

VAT Policy Corner

POLICY No. 26: VAT and Computers

The use of computers forms a vital part of the daily activities for businesses, schools and individuals.
The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) finds it necessary to advise the general public on its policy
regarding computers and computer accessories. This policy therefore, forms the guiding principle as
it relates to zero-rated items which may be used within the Information Technology Sector.

Pursuant to Schedule I paragraph 2 (jj); a supply of the following items are zero rated:
, Computer monitors
Computer printers (excluding multi-function printers)
All internal components of the Central Processing Unit including the cabinet, internal
cd/dvd writers, motherboards, video cards, sound cards, internal power supply,
processors, memories, internal Input/Output cards.
Routers, switches and hubs for networking computers.
Toner cartridges and ink cartridges for computer printers.

In principle, no VAT is paid on the above items and registered businesses which deal with more than 50
percent zero rated items can make monthly claims for a refund of VAT paid on expenses which are
directly related to the sale of the computers and computer accessories.

On the other hand, services such as computer repairs provided by VAT registrants are taxable at the
standard rate of sixteen percent (16%).

Additionally, Schedule I, paragraph 2A (q) zero-rates the provision of internet services providing an
agreement is signed with the Government of Guyana. Interested persons should contact the
Remissions Unit, 357, Lamaha & East Streets, Georgetown.
