Gov't mulls return

of State-run buses
THE Government of Guyana is thinking of acquiring 150 large and medium size passenger
buses for use as public transportation.
~A notice has been sent out by the Ministry of Public Works and Communication inviting ex-
pressions of interest to supply 70 large size buses with a seating capacity of between 48 and 60
persons in two versions, 30 city-type buses with separate entrance and exit with low ground clear-
ance, 40 long-distance coach-type buses and 80 medium size buses capable of transporting be-
tween 28 and 53 persons.
Over the years, there have been several calls for government to re-establish a State-run public
~transportation network.
During the late 1980s, the then Government had closed the State-run transportation facility
and concessions were given to private individuals to operate bus services. This led to the importa-
tion of privately-owned minibuses.
Recently, with the spiraling fuel prices, minibus operators have consistently been de-
manding increased fares despite the government's continuing interventions to cushion the
fuel prices. This has renewed calls for the re establishment of the public bus service. (GINA)

HARARE, (Reuters) -
Zimbabwe's government hopes
to announce the result of a
one-candidate presidential
election today and swear in
President Robert Mugabe for
a new term, extending his un-
broken 28 years in power.
Electoral officials said late on
Saturday the final result of the
widely-condemned vote on Fri-
day had been delayed by the
wait for final tallies from some
rural constituencies.
'"Tonight we cannot give the
results. I don't want to give a
time-frame, but I hope it will be
tomorrow," Utoile Silaigwana, the
deputy chief elections officer for
the Zimbabwe Electoral Com-
mission, told Reuters.
Earlier, government sources
said they expected Mugabe to be
sworn in on Sunday in time to
attend an African Union (AU)
summit in Egypt on Monday,
where he says he will confront
critics of his decision to go ahead
with the vote. The election was
widely condemned around the
world after opposition leader
Morgim Tsvangirai withdrew a
week ago, saying almost 90 of
his supporters had been killed in
government-backed violence.
The government sources said
tallies from two-thirds of polling
stations showed Mugabe, 84, de-
feating Tsvangirai by a huge mar-
Tsvangirai's name remained
on ballot papers after electoral
authorities refused to accept his
decision to withdraw last Sun-
day. He has taken refuge in the
Dutch embassy since then.
''The tallies are indicating

that despite the wishes of our
detractors and the propaganda
of our enemies, the voter turn-
out was very big and that we
are going to see a landslide
victory," said one government
source, who declined to be

rican countries are believed to
have more sway with Mugabe
than foreign powers.
Mugabe has presided over
once-prosperous Zimbabwe's
descent into economic chaos.
Hyper-inflation is estimated to
have hit at least 2 million per-
cent and food and fuel are scarce.
Witnesses and monitors on
Friday reported that in many
areas people did not go to the

some places had been forced to
vote for the president.
Tsvangirai said millions stayed
away from polling stations de-

Change (MDC) won presiden-
tial and parliamentary elections
on March 29 but fell short of
the majority needed for outright

declaration of Friday's result
within 48 hours, the outcome of
the March 29 presidential poll
took five weeks to emerge. Hu-

regional security. The MDC said
it would lobby the summit lead-
"The summit has to take a
firm position on the transition
we seek. It's now a matter of
peace and security. We hope the
matter gets the urgent attention
it deserves. We should not wait
for rivers of blood and the com-
plete breakdown of order,"
MDC spokesman Nelson

Chamisa said.
,But ministers attending a
meeting to prepare the summit
shied away from proposals for
stronger international sanctions
against Mugabe, saying they
were unlikely to work and a
power-sharing deal should be en-
AU mediation helped form a
power-sharing government in
Kenya earlier this year, ending a
crisis in which 1,500 died.
"I think we need to engage
Zimbabwe. The route of sanc-
tions may not be the helpful
one," Kenyan Foreign Minister
Moses Wetangula told reporters
at the summit venue.
Tsvangirai said earlier this
week he would not negotiate
with Mugabe if he went ahead
with the election.
The MDC's Chamisa
criticised South African President
Thabo Mbeki, whose quiet di-
plomacy in Zimbabwe as the
designated regional mediatorbhas
failed to end the crisis. He is
widely acctised of being too soft
on Mugabe.
"President Mbeki has be-
come part of the problem ... I
don't know why he is trying to
resurrect a regime that was re-
jected by the people," Chamisa
Gordon Brown, prime min-
ister of former colonial power
Britain, said Zimbabwe had
reached a new low. "~We will
work with international partners
to find a way to close this sick-
ening chapter that has cost so
many lives" he said.
Mugabe blames Western
sanctions for economic col-
lapse and the opposition for
political violence.

TIHERE are works of art that
simply tell stories whether in
fiction, poetry, theatre or film -
and then there are outstanding
and perennially valuable works
of art which are not simply
about the stories they convey, but
about the REACTION of the
reader or viewer to such works.
In other words, their topic is
about the effect of their style on
your mind, your assumptions, at-
titude and opinions about art,
and how it is expected to be
'The Womnan In The Window'
is such a film classic, made by one
of the greatest European film direc-
tors, German-bom Fritz Lang, who
fled Nazi Germany for Hollywood,
and quickly gained a reputation and
respect for the Artistic brilliance and
social consciousness he brought to
American Cinema. Lang left us
only powerful and unforgettable
films, such as 'Fury', 'You Qnly
live Once', 'Scarlet Street', 'Clash
by Night', and 'The Big Hleat .

What is also interesting is to
consider Fritz Lang's films like 'The
Woman In The Windoiv' being
shown to Guyanese audiences as
it was for at least three decades,
from the 1940s to the 1960s, even
the 70s. This thought is important
because it makes us aware of the
high artistic and moral quality of
such an unusual fim being absorbed
by Guyanese collectively in cin-
emas across the nation during those
decades when this fim was just one
of thousands stored and rented
from localflm depots. Thefull im-
pact of what I am saying should
gain more weight ifwe seethis flm
Of course 'The Woman In The
Window'was advertised from time
to time decades ago in local news-
papers when it was about to be
shown, but by the 1960s, there were
probably no cinema posters for the
fim, so patrons who never saw it `
would simply have to take a chance
on seeing it after reading its hand-
written title painted on a poster
board. Perhaps the lead stars, Ed- .
ward G Robinson, a short, highly
literate and always intellectually
tricky actor, and Joan Bennett, that
cute beautiful actress of wonderful
tenderness and suave seductiveness,
who knew of such great film stars,

and influenced them .to see the

catches his interest, and while ad-

woman, Joan Bennett, strolls up

artist's model like Bennett. How-

the stabbing took place. "He
went there afterwards," he
said, adding: "In this setting
then, can this court say that
that sentence of 10 years was
excessive? Or was it not an
appropriate sentence?"
On the facts as appeared
on the depositions, the Chan-
cellor said, there was little, if
anything, in mitigation of the
crime. "The appellant," he
said, "had had the benefit of
plea to manslaughter ac-
cepted which was an extraor-
dinary advantage in the cir-
cumstances. I will assume
that there was genuine re-
morse. Surely, the trial judge

"The appellant gave up
the cutlass and the knife and
told people about the place
that he had killed his wife,
and wanted to be taken to
the police station. At the
police station, he repeated
that statement that he had

THUMB-sucking is a com-
mon habit of preschool chil-
dren. The activity is normal
for infants and toddlers, but
should decrease by three
years and stop totally by age
four. Unfortunately, many
youngsters can't break the
habit by this time. But is pa-
rental anxiety over thumb-
sucking warranted? It should
be, if the right attitude is not
The sucking of the thumb,
another fingerss, or the tongue
is a very normal response to
anxiety and stress and does not
point to insecurity or emotional
problems in your child. How-
ever, most children give up the
habit by age four, when some
children continue to suck their
thumbs as a means of exerting
independence. I know a woman
aged 52 who has confessed to
me that she still sucks her
thumb. Aside from some minor
problems with thumb and fin-
gernail infections, the most
damage from thumb-sucking oc-
curs to the teeth and jaw.
A well-known pediatrician
recently stated on television
that continued sucking of
thumbs or fingers does not
cause serious dental problems in
children and is not cause for pa-
rental alarm. Wrong! In fact,
prolonged thumb activity pro-
duces significant problems with
chewing, speech, and facial ap-
pearance. In fact, the more time
a child sucks his/her thumb and
the greater the sucking pressure,
the more harm done to teeth and
jaws. Day and night forceful
thumb-sucking makes front
teeth move, and can even re-
shape the jaw bone. Upper
front teeth flare out and tip up-
ward, while lower front teeth
move inward. But, how can
something as small as a child's
thumb or finger effectively
move bone?
The reason that thumbs and

fingers are effective tooth-mov-
ers and bone shapers is that the
jaw bones of children under age
eight are especially soft and
malleable. Children have upper
and lower jaws -rich in blood
supply and relatively low in
mineral content, especially cal-
cium. Unfortunately for chil-
dren and parents, prolonged
thumb or finger sucking easily
deforms the bone surrounding
upper and lower front teeth,
producing a hole or gap when
teeth are brought together
known as an 'open bite'. Now,
if a child stops thumb-sucking
before loss of baby front teeth
and permanent front tooth erup-
tion, most or all harmful effects
disappear within six months.
However, if the habit persists
through permanent front tooth
eruption, there can be lasting
damage: flared or protruded up-
per- teeth, delayed eruption of
upper or lower front teeth, and
the aforementioned open bite.
This can result in chewing dif-
ficulties, speech abnormalities,
and an unattractive smile.
Some parents try home
remedies to break the habit.
Some try placing gloves on their
children before bedtime. Others
paint thumbs and fingers with
various foul-tasting substances,
while still others wrap bandages
around the offending digits. Yet
all of these measures are typi-
cally easy to overcome and are
usually unsuccessful, because
thumb-sucking is a deeply in-
grained behaviour. One method
which might help is to tie/roll a
used x-ray film on the elbow of
the child so that child cannot
bend the hand. You can tape the
edges of the film to avoid sharp
e~nds. Any method will work,
but only if child agrees to co-
One answer to this paren-
tal dilemma is a simple device
called a 'crib'. Placed by your
dentist on the child's upper

teeth, the crib usually stops the
habit cold the first day of use.
The appliance's technical name
is a 'fixed palatal crib', and is a
type of brace that sits full-time
on the upper teeth and the roof
of the mouth. The crib consists
of semicircular stainless steel
wires connected to supporting
steel bands or rings. The half-
circle of wires fits behind the
child's upper front teeth, barely
visible in normal view. The
bands are fastened to the baby
upper second molars. There are
a number of different crib de-
signs used by dentists, all varia-
tions on the same theme.
The first step for parents is
to make an appointment for
their child with a dentist. At the
initial visit, the doctor examines
the child for problems with
tooth position and bite. The
teeth of confirmed thumb-suck-
ers have the tell-tale pattern de-
scribed above, and the doctor
will ask about any habit history.
With a diagnosis of intractable
thumb-sucking, the dentist will
usually recommend a crib to
eliminate the habit. A second
appointment is then arranged,
where clay impressions are
made for plaster study models,
together with facial and dental
photographs and jaw x-rays.
The dentist generally begins
crib construction at the third
visit, and installs the appliance
at the fourth. The child may or
may not experience soreness of
the upper back teeth for a few
hours, and modified speech for
one or two days. Instructions
are given on avoiding gum-
chewing, hard and sticky candy
popcorn, peanuts and other
brace-destroying foods. The
patient is asked not to pull on
the crib with fingers. Thorough
tooth-brushing after each meal is
stressed to prevent food and
plaque build-up and gum infec-
tions or cavities.
Once the crib is installed,

there is' little adjustment. It
is one of the simplest, yet
most effective orthodontic de-
vices. Terrible looking open
bites can close within a few
months. The parent and pa-
tient should consult the den-
tist every two weeks, so that
proper monitoring can take
place. One should remember
that if the habit of thumb-
sucking is not arrested at the
right time, then the parent
can easily find themselves
paying over a hundred thou-
sand ~dollars to correct the

The User of condoms was affected by
techilrDlogcal, economic and social
develofnient in Europe and the US in 1800s.
Condom manufacturing was revolutionised by
the discovery of rubber .vulcanisation by
Goodyear (founder of the tyre company) and Hancock. This meant that is was possible to mass produce rubber'
goods including condoms quickly and cheaply. Vulcanisation is a process, which tums the rubber Into a strong
eleastimaseiSa. ~
In 18614tfhe first advertisement for condoms was published in an American newspaper when The New York
Times printed an ad. for'Or. Power's French Preventatives.'
In 1873, the Comstock Law was passed. Named after Anthony Comstock, the Comstock Law made illegal the
advertising of sinysort of birth control, and it also allowed the postal service to confiscate condioms sold through
the mail.

Until the 1900s, most condoms were manufactured by hand-dipping from rubber cement. These kinds of
condoms aged quickly and the quality
was dourbtul.
In 1919, Frederick Killian Initiated hand-
dipping from natural rubber latex in Ohio.
The latex condoms had the advantage of
ageing less quickly and being thinner and
odourless. These new type of condoms
enjoyed a great expansion of sales. By
the mid-i930s, the fifteen largest makers in the U.S. were producing 1.5 million condoms a day."
In 1957~.,the very first lubricated condom was launched in the UK by Durex.''
From the early 1960s, use of condoms as a contraceptive device declined as the pill, the coll and sterilisation
The obf the condom increased strikingly In many contres following the recognition of HIVAIDS Irrthe 1980s.

The fqmble opgndom has been available in Europe since 1992 and it was approved in 1993 by the US Food and
Drug Adnin~ibstrion (FDA). Find more information about female condoms.
In 1994, the world's first polyurethane condom for men was launched In the US.
The 1 990s ajlso saw the introduction of coloured and flavoured condoms.
Present day
In more! recentyears, improved technology has enabled the thickness of the condom to decrease. Also, condom
manufacturers have recognised that one size of condom does not fit all. You can now find condoms that are different
shapes, widths and lengths.

The ea~rliest evidence of condom use in Europe
comes from scenes in cave paintings at
Combarelles in France.' There is also some
Evidence that some form of condom was used in
Imperial Rome.'

SThe syphilis epidemic that spread across
:Europe gave rise to~he first published account
of the condom. Gabrielle Falloplus described a
sheath of linen he claimed to have invented to
protect men against syphilis,' Having been
Found useful for prevention of Infection, It was
Only later that the usefulness of the condom for
Sthe prevention of pregnancy was recognised.
Later in the 1500s, one of the first improvements
To the condom was made, when the linen cloth
sheaths were sometimes soaked in a chemical
solution and then allowed to dry prior to use.
: These were the first spermicides on condoms.*

The first published use of the world 'condum' was in a 1706
poem.' It has also been suggested that Condom was a doctor
in the time of Charles II. It is believed that he invented the
device to help the king to prevent the birth of more illegitimate
Even the most famous lover of all, Casanova, was using
the condom as a birth control as well as against infection.*

Condoms made out of animal intestines began to be
available. However, they were quite expensive and the
unfortunate result was that they were often reused. This type
of condom was described at the time as "an armour against
pleasure, and a cobweb against infection'.
In the second half of the 1700s, a trade in handmade
condoms- thrived in London and some shops where

I throw them out."
Surjit Singh, who heads the
team of bouncers at the night-
club, speaks highly of Ms
Kaur's work.
"Earlier, some women
would come in and cause
trouble, they would harass men,
and we couldn't do anything
about them. We've also had

Amandeep Kaur'

women trying to sneak in with
drugs, but we couldn't check
them. All this has stopped
since Kaur has come in."
Ms Kaur has had no spe-
cial training to be a bouncer. But
for the job she is in, being fit is
"I work out in the gym for
two hours every morning. I eat
a protein-rich diet. I'm very
strong, both physically and
And most guests seem to
take her strength on board not
many, even when they are
drunk, mess around with her.
But sometimes, things can
- and do get ugly.
"Last week, this girl was
trying to force another in the
toilet to smoke. I went in and

asked her to stop. When she
didn't, I took away her cigarette
and put it out. She lit another
one! I had to throw them out,"
she says.
The matter did not end
"Once outside, her boy-
friend threatened me. He said
you would have to pay for
what you have done.
"I don't feel scared, but
sometimes a thought comes to
the back of my mind. I'm safe
in the club. But once I finish my
duty and leave at 2am, I'm on
my own. What happens if they

It's about 11pm and inside

pressed for details which moved her to use the' chalk board. She ended~ by
saying that this condition was also called SubSahara sickness.
At the mention of that phrase 'sub-Sahara sickness', the children restarted
their chant, 'Houdini Hari, Houdini Hari'. And they told the teacher of
Hari's magic in getting rid of 'Sahara Dixsk' and thereby saving his baby

Sometimes it ruris backward, with the hands moving counter-cloc'kwise.-
When Randy looked at the clock yesterday morning, it showed a quarter

hours, 53 minutes, and finally backward again for 10 hours, 41 minutes.
Randy's clock is a standard 12-hour analog clock.

tinue to emerge.
Most of their parents do not want to talk so great is the stigma.
"My husband left me; he is in Russia now. The night when we
got the test results, he slept on the other side of the bed. I acciden-
tally touched him and he kicked me," said Dilfusa.
Dilfusa, in her early twenties, is now also HIV positive. Like
16 other mothers in Kyrgyzstan, she contracted the virus through
It is rare, but it happens yet no-one warned her, she says,
that she should not have nursed.

ment which they had used again and again.

tem in Kyrgyzstan and across Central Asia that is on trial.
This system is part of the region's Soviet legacy.

Doctors followed the orders of the Communist Party, but they
were well paid and had plenty of resources.
As the USSR fell apart, so did its health system. Hospitals

Aerosis the border lies Central Asia's richest nation, Kazakrhstan,
It boasts one of the former Soviet Union's most successful
economies. But away from the buzz of the capital, the country's
health system is in ruins.
SOne year ago, an unprecedented trial took place in the south-
ern city of Shymkrent.
Tw~enty-one medical professionals were found guilty of infect-
ing more than 70 babies with HIV. The number of infected children
now stands at 149.
Most of the babies were infected through blood transfusions
as doctors made money by prescribing unnecessary transfusions
and selling blood to parents.
Court documents show one child received more than 50 trans-
fusions during just one treatment.
It is not clear where the infected blood came from. But the pros-
ecution suggested drug users could be one possible source.
They are the biggest HIV risk group in Central Asia. In
Shymkent, three drug users said it hiad been standard practice for
them to give blood for money, anid tha when they did they were
not checked for HIV.
The government says this is no longer the case, and that all
blood donors are now carefully screened, but the problem, some
believe, is that the underlying cause of the outbreak still exists.
"Corruption is a particularly dangerous infection for society,"
says Babit Tumeneva, a former senior Kazakh health official who
left her job several years ago to protest against corruption in the
medical sector.
"The doctors have to bribe in order to get jobs or to get a place

As the international community began to pour tens of millions
of dollars into.HIV/AIDS prevention, very little was spent on re-
forming the health system itself.

investing in health systems is inefficient use of resources," says
Gabit Islmailov of the World Health Organisation,
"I think this is a realisation that is coming to the mind of many
donor agencies."
But it has come too late for the growing number of children
already affected, and not only in Kyrgyzstan.

National Identification Card is a legitimate instrument of identification -for the person in whose name it is issued.
You will need your National Identification Card to identify yourself for several purposes.
National Identification Cards are required for the following:-
1. Applying for aDriver's permit (licence)
2. Applying for aPassport
3. Applying fora Loan
4. Applyin ~for a Police Clearance Certificate
5. Applying for a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)
6. Carrying out Bank Transactions

When the power of law is substituted by the power of money, all
of us become hostages to situations like the one in Shymkent," she
Ms Tumeneva, like many, is convinced that the Shymkent and
Osh outbreaks are part of a larger regional trend.
"The situation in hospitals is similar everywhere. It just hap-
pened that it was discovered in Shymkent," she says.
Wasted lessons

The government provided accommodation for 10 of the 149
families. Their houses stand on the edge of a landfill. The air reeks
of rotting rubbish, and their neighbours want them out.
"When the neighbours found out that Syatt was ill, there was a
big scandal there was even fighting. They wanted to eviict us,"
she said.
When Syatt was seven months old, Salima took him to hospi-
tal to check a swelling on his knee. It was inside the hospital, she
says, that he got sick with pneumonia and doctors administered
several transfusions
"I'm heartbroken. None of our relatives want to know us. They
told me to abandon him, to put him in an orphanage. But it's not
his fault, it's the State's fault and the doctors' fault," she said.
As she speaks, Syatt is playing with his only friend, Ruslana.
She is another of the HIV babies. Salima hopes that maybe one
day, the two will get married. No healthy girl will ever marry my
grandson, she tells me.
But Ruslana is already very sick and only one stage away from
getting full-blown AIDS.
Fifteen babies have died of AIDS in Shynikent, killed in places

Systt and Ruslana's tragedy, she says, is all the more
pointless because elsewhere, the painful lessons of Shymkent
have already been wasted. (BBC News)

"Even though the money I earn is not enough for
my needs, I have to persevere because this is all I
"I come here after school because I want to earn some
money," says Boniface Onyango.
"When I wash 100 plastic bags. I get 10 shillings (16
cents). I use this money to buy food and clothes. When I
get 20 shillings I take it home and give it to my parents."
His parents have decided to send the 15-year-old to
their rural home so that he can concentrate on his stud-
"The money is tempting, but I'd rather go and study
there so that I can become a carpenter."
The dump has contributed to the pollution of the
Nairobi River, along with human waste that is emptied into
it from pit latrines in the neighboring slums. Men are
employed to empty latrines and dump the contents into
the river every day.
The polluted river is a serious health hazard.
"I have to keep buying medicine so that I don't get
sick. Once I had pneumonia, and another time I had
bloody diarrhea," says Wilkista Aoko.
John Kariuki has been collecting and washing
plastic sacks for the last six years.
"Ths is the only job I have," he says.
"I have not been able to get married and have a family
because I don't earn enough money doing this work."
"I have heard that the dump site affects people's
health, but I haven't had any problems. If I did, I wouldn't
be here," he says.

Once the bags are washed, they are dried in the sun
and packed into bundles ready for sale.
The bags are sold to middle-men who sell them to fac-
tories for re-use or recycling.
The government has plans to relocate the dump, but
this has been opposed by those who make a living from
the rubbish.
"It is true that this rubbish is dangerous, but I beg
the government to give us some money to start businesses
so that we can take care of our famnilies," says Christine
Daniel Omondi (1) and Wilson Kamau used to scavenge
from the dump before they joined a local acrobatic troupe.
"I stopped working at the dump site six years ago
because I got a chance to do something else and earn
some good money. Also, working here is dangerous,
it's not good for one's health," Mr Omondi says.
Mr Kaman worked here for four years. "I will
never come back to collecting garbage, I know I'll
find something else to do," he says.

ARIES -- You are likely to hit at least one obstacle today but some-
times roadblocks are there to keep you from getting into dangerous situa-
tions, so take a deep breath when you encounter one. Try not to look at it
as a bad thing. The limitation you encounter whether it's a strict parent,
a militant boss or just a rule that you must obey is there for a reason.
You may have to struggle more than usual to get somewhere today, but in
that struggle you will appreciate your journey all the more.
TAURUS --Be careful who you show affection to today after all, you don't
want anyone to get the wrong idea, do you? There is someone in your daily
life who has taken a shine to you, and they seem to think you've taken a
shine to them too which you definitely haven't. You don't have to be cruel
to them, but you certainly should not lead them to think something that isn't
true. False hope is just that: False. Avoid any physical contact with them,
and you should get the message across.
GEMINI -- Today the good news you have wanted to hear for so long will
finally arrive and it might have an unforeseen effect on your finances. So
take some time today to review your accounts and make sure you under-
stand how they could be changing in the near future. Money is also on the
mind of a dear friend who's got some serious debt troubles. Lend them
your ear and sympathize, but do not lend them any money. It will only create
problems for you two in the future-
CANCER -- Your original ideas need to be protected right now they are
in danger of being stolen! Not everyone is as creative as you are, and some
unscrupulous people have no problem taking your ideas and promoting
them as their own. You have a good idea of who a likely thief could be, so
be tight lipped when you are around them, today. There's no need to elabo-
rate why you are being so elusive it will only get them angry. Let them
find out what you're cooking up when everyone else does.
LEO -- It's healthy to treat yourself right, but if you overindulge for too long,
you will run the risk of getting behind on your finances, going over budget,
or developing some unhealthy habits. It's time to start creating some rules
for yourself and sticking to them! Cutting back here and there doesn't
have to be painful. Bring your lunch with you more often. Wash your car
ourself. Avoid the mall for a while. You won't have trouble finding other things

VIRGO -- Your adventurous spirit is getting stronger right now, and your
heart is dojng its bidding is it time to plan a trip to some exotic or other-
wise exciting locale? Hunker down in the travel section of your favorite book-
store, click around your favorite travel websites, and ask friends about their
recent journeys. Find out where you really want to go next, and who you
want to go with, if anyone. A solo trip might be the perfect solution, so keep
your mind open to that-
LIBRA -- Celebrate the recent kindness a stranger has shown you by per-
forming an act of kindness of your own and making it twice as gener-
ous. If you can donate some money to a charity, give more than your usual
amount. Money may not be able to buy happiness, but it can help people in
need (and make you feel really good). Let a driver cut in front of you in traf-
fic, pay someone else's toll or parking meter, or just give somebody a smile.
The world is full of people who are just like you.
SCORPIO -- You will be fighting a very tough battle between your patience
and your temper, today there are too many annoying people fluttering
around you right now, and none of them seem to know a thing about man-
ners. Maybe a rude stranger cuts in front of you in line. Maybe a cell phone-
chatting driver nearly runs you off the road. Or perhaps an inconsiderate
coworker takes the last can of your favorite soda from the kitchen! Regard-
less, you need to put things in perspective. Don't lose your cool!
SAGITTARIUS -- Before you get involved in any new event, sport or rela-
tionship, today, you need to put things on pause and take one last look at
the small print that's involved. You absolutely cannot take things at face
value right now there is just too much uncertainty and subterfuge around
you. There is always more to the story, and it's definitely in your best inter-
est to find out what that is. This kind of knowledge will keep you from get-
ting hurt, and it will send a clear message that you are no fool.
CAPRICORN -- Walk down the quieter path today. Avoid the crowds, skip
out on the hot spots and say 'no thanks' to that party invitation. This is not
an ideal time for you to be meeting new people or vying for the attention of
a group of people. However, it is the perfect time to indulge in some sanity-
saving alone time. Even if you feel no need for solitude, it couldn't hurt to
have some time to think about recent events. Recharge your batteries to-
night and you'll wake up feeling more alive than ever
AQUARIUS -- The cast of characters in your life will start changing today,
and you might not like who enters the picture, at first. Your regular way of
dciing things will have to be different in order to accommodate them, and
this could naturally create some feelings of resentment. But do your best to
embrace what's going on it is definitely for the best in the long run. After
the initial turmoil is over, things are only going to start getting better. The
universe is pushing you in the right direction.
PISCES --It's not your responsibility to fix the problems in one of your
friend's lives. You need to be supportive of them, but you have to stop put-
ting so much pressure on yourself. And if they choose to ignore your solid
advice, you can't be frustrated by their continued failure. Sure, you know that
they are making a huge mistake, but they don't the only way they will
learn is through trial and error. Take a more hands-off approach-to your
friendship. It's the best thing for both of you.

The Passage
"What're you looking' at so down in the mouth about. Tass?" Donald Thomton asked his wife. She was
feeding their three small daughters when he came home from his meat-packing job, and her eyes met
his with an expression he hadn't seen before.

"Didn'tyou hear?" Tass said softly. "Alittle girl nobigger than our Donna was raped this afternoon in front
of our building.*

Donald Thomton now realized what he was seeing in his wife's eyes: the same concern for their
daughters' growing up in New York City's Harlem that was worrying him sick. He put his hand on Tass's
shoulder. "Start packing," he said. "WNe're
getting' out a here." .

After that evening in 1948, the family moved in a-- ... L~~-L
with Donald's mother in Long Branch, N.J. :
Donald got a job digging ditches at nearby Fort '
Mlonmouth Army base while Tass worked as a
domestic. Soon Donald found a second job
delivering home-heating oil at night, and a third
on weekends as a bricklayer's helper. The
brick laying job paid only fifty cents an hour, but
Donald had a reason for wanting to leamn the

By the time a fourth daughter, Linda, arrived, Donald had saved enough money to buy a building lot.
Deed in hand, he called on the president of thelocal bank. "Sir," he said quietly, "if you have children you
know why I want mine to have a decerit place to live." After the men finished talking, Donald Thomnton
received the first mortgage that the bank had evergranted to a black-

You can only become a better writer to the degree of effort at which you improve your writing. So please
be persistent and keep on editing your work. You can encourage your colleagues andlor peers to do the
same. It should be good to know that all writers, even famous ones work steadily at trying to improve
their work in many ways.

use Collective Nouns

Collective noun names a group.

army, team, committee,
choir, (the) public, (a) pride (of lions)

You can consider collective nouns to be either singular or plural, depending upon the meaning you wish
to convey. If a collective noun refers to a group as a whole, it is considered singular. If a collective noun
refers to the individual members of a group, it is considered plural. Note the difference in the following
examples. You can start using collective nouns more frequently in your writings, and become more
comfortable with using such nouns as either singular or plural words.

SINGULAR: The committee has been notified.
PLURAL: The committee have taken different routes to the exhibition.
SINGULAR: The class likes to read-poetry.
PLURAL: The class take theirseats.

Identifying Collective Nouns

List the five collective nouns in the following paragraph.

'After the crew of the merchant ship finish their chores, they love to watch the sea. ?Occasionally at
night a swarm of plankton makes the ocean glow softly. fAyoung sailor watches in amazement as a pod
of feeding whales suddenly breaks the calm surface. 4Only a few days earlier, along the coast of
Califomnia, the sailors had spotted a herd of sea lions frolicking in the waves. SThe varied population of
the sea never ceases to delight the young sailor.
Enhance Your Writing

Relax and then call to mind an interesting happening you witnessed recently. Write it down as you
remember it. Then turn it into a short story which is enhanced with dialogue.

Remember that you need to evaluate your first draft objectively, maybe drastically. If you have the time,
you can lay it aside, returning to it within a few minutes, hours or days later (according to when the
finished piece is needed.)~ You can then look at it objectively, asking yourself questions such as the ones

1 .Is my writing interesting?
2. Does it respond appropriately to the th~pic?
3. Isiteasytofollow?
4. What do Ilike best about it?
5. How can I make it better?

When you are finished checking things out for yourself, ask one of your study group peers to spot
problems you have or may not be able~ to see. He/She can check for unity where all the sentences and
details should help support the main idea. Also helshe can check for coherence, adding transitions to
conidct ideas. You can let himlher make comments right there on the page or offa separate sheet of

Be certain that alterations work to the enhancement of your wnting.

The effort it takes in trying to im~ilove your writing will make you a better writer, so be Persistent and keep
on editing your writing. All writers, even famous ones work steadily at trying to improve their work.

Group Work Summary Wiriting
Summarise the plot of a short Story you read or a movie you saw recently.
Here is what you have to do:
*Describe the setting, point of view, and the main character's problem.
*Explain the important events up through the climax and resolution.
S*Do not include personal opinions of the story.
Be certain that everyone in the group contributes to the editing.
Please note that one of the rules of summary writing is the non-admission of personal opinions.

THE crowds in Dili's national stadium were ex-
cited. It is not every day you see Jackie Chan en-
joying the show from the stalls-
Chan, actor and martiatarts expert, is visiting East
Timor this week, as a goodwill ambassador for the UN
children's fund, UNICEF, to talk to youth groups about
SFresh off a helicopter trip to meet young p
cople from outside thie capital, Chan led Dili's
martial arts groups in a demonstration of his
skills a small figure in a bright blue T-shirt, sur-
rounded by a crowd of young and curious
But he did not just come to show them some
new moves he also came to talk about the mean-
ing and role of martial arts.
And his message was very simple: "If you use mar-
tial arts to help somebody, you're the hero. If you use
martial arts just on the street to fight somebody, even
if you win, you're not the hero you're nobody."
The assembled crowd cheered, but will his mes-
sage get through to those members of East Timor's
martial arts groups that were involved in the lethal
violence here two years ago?
Then, infighting among the security forces opened

I asked some of the young people gathered at the
stadium whether they thought Jackie Chan's message
would get through to the people it needed to.
"They must listen," said one man, "because for so.
long they've been creating problems, people have suf-
fered because of their actions and now we have some-
one very famous visiting us, spreading the message,
they should -listen."
Another man agreed.
"They need to listen so they can change and stop
all the problems they've been creating and Timorese
can live in peace."
Despite the optimistic mood inside East
Timor's national stadium, tackling the problem of
youth violence is going tq take much more than a
simple message of peace.
It is going to mean the government tackling
some difficult, long-term issues like getting in-
vestment to kick-start the economy, and building
infrastructure to attract it.
Because the main reason young people join mar-
tial arts groups in the first'place is boredom.
More than 15,000,young people enter the job inar-
ket here every year, according to the World Bank, and
they are competing for about 400 jobs.
If the government is looking for a silver bul-
let, it is employment. (BBC News)

the police to move swiftly to

GUYANA's President,
Bharrat Jagdeo, has said his
country may have to be
pushed into signing the
Economic Partnership
:Agreement the region has
'negotiated with the Euro-

He said Guyana will only

EU Markey enjoyed by Afri-
can, Caribbean and Pacific

The WTO had said that it
violated free trade rules.
According to President
Jagdeo, Guyana's refusal to

opinions from experts includ-
ing University of Cambridge

Dr Bartels has advised

:.:AT THIS very challenging period of rampant criminality
.the people of Guyana have to strive to avoid becoming
Snumb to the barbaric massacres and ~other acts of mur-
der and armed robberies committed in various
communities by ruthless criminals driven by hate and
The wNaste of human lives by the criminal rampage
rocking too many countries of our region, with varying
consequences for families, security forces, govern-
ments, private sector and other stakeholders, will fea-

week's CARICOM Summit in Antigua and Barbuda.
in the case of Guyana one of three most crime-
affected CARICOM States, (Jamaica and Trinidad and
Tobago being the others) for its people to succumb
to the terror of the criminal enterprise would be to live
with constant fear of those who have no respect for the
rule of law.
This is evidenced by their murderous deeds
against innocent children, women and men in the three
most outrageous, horrific human tragedies this year -
Lusignan, Bartica and, just this past week, at Lindo
Creek in the Berbice River area.
More than ever, Guyanese must demonstrate
awareness of their individual and collective responsibili-
ties to be involved in the fight to reclaim the right to a
safe and secured environment by helping the law en-
forcing agencies arrest the downward slide to the law-
lessness engineered by armed criminal networks.
These barbarians, some originally protected in
communities, or defended by those who should have
known -better, deserve no sympathies for the terrible
damage they have done to the image of Guyana and the
trauma being suffered by honest, law abiding citizens of
every ethnic, religious and political segment of this na-
The reaffirmation of confidence in the Guyana Po-
lice Force and the Guyana Defence Force that came last
week from the government in the face of some calcu-
lated attempts to undermine their credibility, following the
bizarre Lindo Creek massacre of eight miners, is timely
and a porat .
Hopefully, it would also have the positive impact of
the security forces being much more committed to
achieving success in the war against oniminality and, at
the same time, ensuring that within their own ranks, all
are standing firmly against corruption, nepotism and in-
competence, and, therefore, deserving of robust public
At some stage, and without prejudice to the inves-
tigations being pursued by the security forces, it may be-

Whe 'yhbg

come necessary for the government to consider an inde-
pendent inquiry into the massacres of Lusignan, Bartica
and Lindo Ci~eeK1u:
Such an init ative should not be confused with an al-
ready prompi corn'mitment by President.Bharrat Jagdeo to
"full, transparent Investigations" by the security forces, with
support of technical assistance requested from the USA,
and for the findiritas to be made public.
Separkte Wo~m the nature of the work being done by
the intelligence arld crime units of the security forces, there
are a rangeilof-issues that could be pursued by an inde-
pendent ~commission, comprising individuals of recognized
nationalre~giorial stature and integrity, into the barbarism
of Lusignan, Bartica and Lindo Creek.
Indeed, depending on its terms of reference, such a
probe commission could be good for the reputation of the
security fom~es,!rS it may well be for the government's own
commitment to iar law and order environment.
It could alsh have the effect of stimulating public con-
fidence that no Atone is being left unturned to learn the
whole truth abopt the `massacres of Lindo Creek, Bartica
and Lusignan.:,
Hopefully, long before an independent, empowered
inquiry commission is established into the nightmare
atrocities of Luisinan, Bartica and Lindo Creek, the crimi-
nals currently on the run would have been captured and,
along with their allies, placed under tight security to face
court trials.


With the recent contro-
versy about Pit Bull at-
tacks, why don't some
owners understand that
failing to enclose their
dogs in a fenced-in yard
with a gate, or keeping
their dogs on a leash will
prevent these terrible at-
tacks on people.
Responsible ownership
starts from the time your
chosen breed of dog comes
to live with you. Irrespon-
sible owners are one of the
major causes for all the prob-
lems any breed of dog faces
today. By no means are dogs
people haters or people eat-
ers, but with the natural ag-
gressive tendencies of some
breeds, such as the Pit Bull
or Rottweiler would require
owners to learn to properly
restrain such dogs.
As always, it is the animals
that are defenceless when con-
fronted with charge of aggres-
sive attacks on people, and
owners do not admit their con-
stant failure and empty don't-
care attitude to prevent their
guard dogs from running loose
and wild.
Pit Bulls and other ag-
gressive breeds of dogs are
quality companions, but for
quality owners only who are
well informed about the tem-
perament of the breed. A

minimum of training with
certain habits of how to
socialise with the good
people and how to scare off
the bad people will produce
an obedient dog and compan-
ion. All dogs are eager to
learn and willing to please
and be obedient to their
owners if properly trained.
Dogs are not the problem
and people must recognize
this fact; people are the
problem and until individu-
als stop ignoring their pets
leaving them to roam and run
wild attacking people, then it
becomes a serious issue for
the Law of the land. On the
other hand, people become
fearful of all dogs because
careless owners bring out the
worst in Pit Bulls and every
breed of dog.
Regretful though, is
the sad fact worldwide that
Pit Bulls pay the penalty
of being destroyed, be-
cause of selfish uncaring
people who undertake
ownership without a clue
of knowledge, and to be-
lieving that only Pit Bulls
can give them a safe haven
of protection. Contrary to
that theory, any breed of
dog will provide security
and protection.

The Joint Services gained
a major breakthrough a few
days earlier when, through
intelligence, they were able
to find one of the 'Fine Man'
gang's hideouts. With the se-
curity services hot on their

trail, it is not impossible for
them or some of their sup-
porters to create a diversion.
The security forces have
been receiving a level of sup-
port lately that was absent
for some time. They were
able to successfully remove
the gang from Buxton, and

I, like Vaughn, am ap-
palled at the PNCR leaders,

even implying that that act

mental criticisms: "People

Arotitim chose to accuse

unthinkable that the Chief-
of-Staff and the Commis-
sioner of Police and the en-
tire Joint Services would
conspire to murder these
men and, having killed
them, kelit it a secret.
How many Guyanese
would believe thiat that is

possible? These are soldiers
and policemen, decent citi-
zens of Guyana, not the run-
of-the-mill everyday killers.
The truth will finally come
out, but will Arokium and
others be willing to accept
the truth? Or are they going
to determine what the truth
is and believe that?
Arokium has stated his po-
sition. What is the case for the
relatives of the other persons
who lost their lives? Are they
accepting what was told to
them by a man who refused to
bring out their fathers, sons,
husbands and brothers because

he wanted to ensure that he got
his money while he rested
safely in Georgetown?
The involvement of the
PNCR in this matter is dis-
gusting. They are, as usual,
capitalising on every unfortu-
nate situation to gain politi-
cal mileage. Guyana could
well remember the beginning
of the episode in Buxton. The
relatives need to ensure that
they resist all attempts to
politicise the issue before
they find themselves in bed
with the enemy.

then proceeded to the self

flavour my meal. I was told
there was no pepper and I
also heard some other per-

lack of pepper.
Given the fact that I was

Should that be the case,
then the vast majority of high-

A'FAUX PAS' is not a lie or an error. It is a truthful state.
ment which, for political or social reasons, the speaker
should not have made. But since he did make it, let us dis-
cuss it
In an interview published in the July issue of Fortune maga-
zine, Charlie Black, chief strategist to John McCain, observed
that the Republican presidential candidate would benefit from
a surge of support if there were a terrorist attack on the United
States before the election. You could hardly make a more obvi-
ous statement. Hermits who have lived in caves since the Great
Depression know that much about American politics. But you
are not supposed to say it out loud.
It's easy to see how Black was led into this faux pas. In
the interview, he had men-
t oned the ss ssnatond *

Benazir Bhutto last Decem- .
ber as an example of an emer- f
agency in which McCain's ex-
perience would trump
Barack Obama's lack of
"(McCain's) knowl-
edge and ability to talk
about it re-emphasised ~ t
that this is the guy who's ;
ready to becommander-in- .
chief," said Black, "and it .;k~ li
helpe dl tinte I eels). I

the obvious next question: i" "
Would the public also see
McCain as the better man to deal with another terrorist
attack on the United States?
What was Black supposed to say? "No, I'm sure that Sena-
tor Obama would deal with it every bit as well as my candi-
date"? This was a live interview, and he had inadvertently cre-
ated an opening for the interviewer to ask the taboo question.
So he put his foot in it: "Certainly, it would be a big advantage
to McCain." Cue fake shock and synthetic horror as everybody
on the Democratic side pretends that Black is playing the 'poli-
tics of fear'.
This is 'Gotcha!' politics of the lowest order. It is why
debate on certain key subjects in the United States since
9/11 has been reduced to bland and mindless slogans on
both sides of the political divide. Obama cannot say that
the 'terrorist threat' to the United States has been inflated
past bursting point for the past seven years, and that it is
high time to shrink it to its real, rather modest dimen-
sions and get on with the country's other long-neglected
agendas. He would be crucified by the Republicans as "soft

may show that these economies
may have lost out with sugar,
vis-g-vis the Economic Partner-
ship Agreement (EPA) with the
European Union (EU).
But how did this EPA come
about? The furor on sugar
started when the European
Commission announced on June
22, 2005 its intention to reform

the Common Market
Organisation (CMO) for Sugar;
the EU definitively decided to
initially reduce by 36% the
price of sugar that African, Car-
ibbean and Pacific (ACP) coun-
tries will receive.
Effectively, this decision
brought to an end the era of pref-
erential access to sugar from 20
ACP countries. The preferential
access started life in 1975,
whereby the access really was
for agreed quantities of sugar at
guaranteed prices, negotiated an-
nually. The preferential quota
had an equivalence of some 1.3
million tonnes per year.
With the end of preferential
access, the EU also made avail-
able resources for adjustment
and compensation from 2006
through 2013; and so, the EU
initially made an offer of 6 bil-
lion Euros to its own produc-
ers; but agreed onrly on 6 mil-
lion Euros for all ACP countries
for 2006.
The Lom6 Convention
governed the ACP-EU Sugar
Protocol from 1975 through
2000. And the February 2000
expiration of the LomC Con-
vention created the opportu-
nity for reviewing the future
of EU-ACP relations. And so,
arising from this review was
a new EU-ACP agreement
signed on June 23, 2000 in
Cotonou, Benin, lasting for
20 years from March 2000
through February 2020; the
Cotonou Agreement.
The Cotonou Agreement
ca wes orev sin el uer w ch
such a review commenced in
May 2004 and ended on Feb-
ruary 23, 2005. And so, it is
not surprising that the EU's an-
nouncement of a change in the

CMO for sugar came in June
2005, clearly opening the way
for a new trade agreement; and
so, efforts to put in place Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreements
(EPAs), as the new agreement,
began in earnest.
EPA negotiations were set
in motion with West Africa and
Central Africa in October 2003,
with Eastern and Southern Af-
rica in February 2004, and with
the Caribbean in April 2004.
The EPAs are intended to re-
place the 'trade' chapters of the
Cotonou Agreement.
But what about the EPAs?
CARIFORUM will get market
access for goods and services,
and pledges of development
support. The EU will get access
to CARIFORUM markets for
goods and services, and com-
pulsory obligations on
CARIFORUM policies in addi-
tional areas.
According to Mareike
Meyn of the Overseas Develop-
ment Institute, growth hypoth-
eses provide legitimacy to the
EPAs. The geographical hy-
pothesis of growth may 'be the
cornerstone' of EPAs. The
thinking runs as follows: The
ACP econonnes' underdevelop-
ment limits investment and
growth; and it's only with re-
gional integration that we can
reduce business costs, enhance
market attractiveness, with
greater economies of scale.
But there have been mount-
ing criticisms of the EPAs. What
are they ? Norman Girvan,
H vlock Br wser, aad Vau hn
'Problem Areas in the EPA and
the case for Content Review' to
the Reflections Group, believe
that renegotiation is a must as,
once the EPA is in force, it

would be hard to amend. They
cited 19 areas that make the case
for renegotiation, but we
present seven, as follows:
(1) The main objective of
the EPAs is to reduce poverty
and bring about sustainable de-
velopment; but the development
component in the EPA is sub-
ordinate to trade liberalisation;
(2) resource transfers not legally
compulsory within the EPA;
such transfers help to reduce in-
equality between the two part-
ners, for they enhance the pro-
ductive capability of the groups;
the end result would be greater
inequality, and the advanced
partner, the EU, would have
greater access to these opportu-
nities thrown up by trade
liberalisation; (3) possible tariff
elimination on 82.7% of im-
ports from the EU; (4) market
access does not add up to mar-
ket presence, as many value-
added goods from
CARIFORUM will be ex-
cluded; (5) CARIFORUM en-
terprises would need help to
enhance their supply capabili-
ties and competitiveness, mn or-
der to comply with imports
from the EU; nothing is in the
EPA about such aid; (6) devel-
opment cooperation within the
EPA is not calculated and time-
bound; (7) availability of 29 ser-
vice sectors and 11 professional
services in the EU has too many
And then, the Caribbean
Regional Negotiating Machinery
(CRNM) issued a 32-point re-
speons to the Git a-Brews ere
CRNM noted that: "The au-
thors' comment lies on the false

Black's Faux ass
From page nine
on terrorisni," and the US media would uncritically echo
the charge.
Instead, various Obama spokespersons condemned Black's
candid remark and, by extension, McCain's tactics. "It is criti-
cal that the candidates debate national an atmo-
sphere free from fear tactics and political bluster," intoned Ri-
chard Ben-Veniste, a former member of the bipartisan Septem-
ber 11 commission whom the Obama campaign trotted out for
the media. What Black had said involved neither fear tactics nor
political bluster, but at this level, hypocrisy rules.
Black himself, of course, had to make a grovelling apol-
ogy, and McCain had to distance himself from Black as
far as possible: "I cannot imagine why (Black) would say
it. It isn't true. I've worked tirelessly since 9/11 to prevent
another attack on the United States." But it IS true: A ter-
rorist attack would obviously drive million of American
voters back into the arms of 'Mr. Security', because a great
many people assume that ex-fighter pilots are just better
than first-term senators at dealing with that sort of thing.
Nobody said that John McCain was hoping for a terrorist
attack on the United States, but that is the implicit accusation
he is denying when he talks about "working tirelessly" to pre-
vent an attack. And that superficial and pathetic exchange of
views is probably the closest that the United States is going to
come to a genuine debate on security issues during this entire
election campaign.
So let us move on to something more interesting. What

I cannot read their minds, but I do know what would swing

DURING meetings with resi-
dents at Vryheid West Canje
and at Number 19 Village
Berbice yesterday, President
Bharrat Jagdeo outlined the
myriad problems facing
Guyana and other African,
Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP)
countries relating to the Eu-
ropean Union (EU)'s prefer-
ential price cut on sugar.
He also referred to the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) which is expected to be
signed by CARIFORUM coun-
tries next week.
The Head of State alluded
to the rising price of fuel world-
wide and also outlined some of
the measures already taken by
the Guyana government in its

attempt to cushion the impact
on Guyanese. Some of those
measures, he said, include the
government's subsidizing of the
energy and water sectors.
The President noted that
the Guyana Power and Light
(GPL) company has requested
additional subsidies, and that
the administration will have
to channel another $700 mil-
lion into the Guyana Water
Incorporated (GWI) in order
that water cost will not in-
He said before he leaves of-
fice he wants to ensure that he

facility estimated to cost in the
vicinity of US$450 M.
On May 7, when he an-

nounced additional measures to
cushion the impact of rising
food and other prices, President


Jagdeo had noted that Guyana
has a very high consumption of
fuel per capital.
"This is why we use now
the equivalent of 35 per cent
of our Gross Domestic Prod-
uct (GDP) to import fuel. If it
(fuel) goes to US$200 (per
barrel) as predicted... I don't
think it's going to get there
in the near term... but as-
suming that that happens,
close to 70 per cent of the
GDP would be used to import
fuel... No country could sus-
tain that kind of financial re-
sources without there being
serious problems," President
Jagdeo had said then.
He had also stressed that re-
newable energy resource was

the answer. Investors for the
AMAILA Falls hydro-project
have been speaking with the
President. .
The construction of a hy-
dro-power facility is one of the

The Head of State listened
to the various issues raised by
residents including water prob-
lems which are being faced by
residents of Vryheid.
He outlined other govern-
ment initiatives such as the

that the' government will be

for use by Community Policing
Groups (CPGs).
President Jagdeo explained
that though Guyana does not
have a food shortage as such,
that the government has to con-
tinue putting measures in place
to ensure it remains that way.
He also sought to remind resi-
dents that the government has
also been subsidizing flour, and

GLOBAL Textile (Guyana)
Inc, a subsidiary of Queens
Atlantic Investment Inc
(QAICI), is looking at Septem-
ber for the commissioning of
its new textile production
unit, while the parent com-
pany proposes having at least
three other facilities up and
running before yearend.
Those facilities at reference
are a pharmaceutical export
processing facility, a hardware
manufacturing division, and an
antibiotics plant and R&D facil-
ity, for which construction has
already begun.
Queens Atlantic said in are-
lease yesterday that the textile
unit, which is being set up at its
industrial estate at Ruimveldt,
previously the site of the Sanata
Textile Complex, will be de-
signed to utilise yarn to produce
fabrics, which will in turn be
washed, dyed and treated, as
necessary, to produce a variety

of products such as denim and
medicated and non-medicated
bandages and hospital dressings.
The new machinery for this
division is being sourced from
Italy and China, the company
said, adding that given the
steady demand for good quality
denim material and various ban-
dages, 'Global Textile' intends
to export a significant volume of
its output to countries within.
the region, including North
Confident that the machin-
ery it has acquired to produce
fabric of the highest standards
ahs the capacity to do the job,
Queens Atlantic said: "The flex-
ibility of equipment will also
enable the company to manufac-
ture other products for techni-
cal and household uses," and
that furthermore,' there are
downstream value-added oppor-
tunities to be had, which, when
combined effectively with the
core business of fabric produc-
tion, will guarantee
sustainability and benefits to the
country while creating more
than 400 jobs.
Th~rning its attention to
the slew of unwarranted me-
dia attention it has been hav-
ing of late which primarily
has to do with it's lease of the
Sanata Textiles Complex, an
entity that had been in such
a state of disrepair that the
textile equipment contained
therein were beyond salvag-
ing or resuscitation, Queens
Atlantic said that in spite of
all the negativity, it still sub-
scribes "to the belief that the
engine of growth must ema-
nate from the private sector,
preferably by Guyanese, and
the main focus should be in
areas that promote real devel-
opment using modern tech-
On the issue of prolonged
lease rental and the possibility
of' the devaluation of the
Guyana dollar in relation to the
US dollar having a negative fi-
nancial effect on the lessor,
Quleens Atlantic said:
"In a highly competitive en-
vironment, it is not prudent for
the company to give details of
its proposed activities and
strategies, but it is pertinent to
state that the lease rental is de-
nominated in US dollars, and
will be increased periodically,
based on the movement of the

Consumer Price Index (CPI) in
the USA."
Contending that the
foregoing information "is
conveniently and constantly'' ,
being overlooked in some
quarters, Queens Atlantic
said a case in point was the
newspaper columnist who in-
correctly presented an analy-
sis in the media discounting.

equivalent of the rent, even
though they have on numer-
ous occasions made the rel-
evant information available to
the media.
As the company was at
pains to point out in its release,
"while QAII's rent is denomi-
nated in US dollars and is sub-
ject to an escalation clause,
based on the US CPI, there are
companies in Guyana paying
rent as low as G$1 per square
By comparison, it goes on
to say, "these companies are
paying a mere decimal of QAII's
rent, and they will pay even
less if the Guyana Dollar depre-
It was also pointed out that
"QAII is responsible for the
payment of rates and taxes, [an~d
that while] the proposed invest-
ment of the company is of the
order of US$30M over a three-
year period, the annual lease
payment of approximately
G$50M for a property dormant
for several years, and on which
millions were spent on fixed and
other costs, is more than what
most companies pay as tax to
the government."
Clean-up cost alone, which
includes the removal of asbes-
tos and other waste materials,
the company said, is expected
to surpass G$1.5 billion.
The company said in clos-
ing that "the export processing
facility will consolidate the ex-
port of the NGPC (New

THE Roman Catholic Diocese of Guyana on Wednesday offi-
cially declared open the St Pault's Retreat Centre, a spanking
new multi-million dollar facility with all modern conveniences
at Vryheid's Lust, on the East Coast Demnerara.
The event was officiated by the Bishop of Georgetown, Rever-
end Francis Alleyne, who, apart from blessing the building and un-
veiling a shrine in commemoration of the occasion, delivered the
feature address.
Besides being used by churches within the Catholic body pri-
marily for iveekend retreats, conferences and other such activities,
the facility will also be open to other denominations as well as the
corporate commnity who might need to use it to either house over-
seas delegations, or to hold conferences, workshops, retreats and
seminars among other worthwhile activities.

TWO occurrences that were
both overlooked or merely dis-
missed as incidents of no
great import may have been a
warning to 26-year-old Rawle
Wood of the impending danger
that lay ahead a mere 24
hours away in the form of a
vehicular accident that would
claim the lives of three.
The first instance was
around 19:30h on Sunday, April

27 when Rawle, who was here
on holiday from St Thomlas, was
travelling in a 'picki-up' not far
from his parents residence at
Mahaica, some 23 miles from
the city. As the driver made to
pass two cows which were on
the roadway, one of the animals
unexpectedly butted the other,
sending it stumblingwinto the
path of the approaching vehicle.
A major disaster was averted,
but only because the driver was
proceeding with caution. The

front fender and bumper of the
vehicle, however, were severely
Later that evening, at around
22:00h, Rawle was travelling in
yet another vehicle, when the
bonnet suddenly flew open and
hit and broke its windscreen.
Again, no one was seriously
hurt, and the occurrence was dis-
missed as a minor incident.
It was not until,the follow-
ing evening, Monday, April 28
at around 17:30h, when cows

again featured, this time causing
a most horrific smash-up involv-
ing the bus in which Rawle was
travelling and a truck, that his
parents would realise that mis-
fortune had indeed been con-
stantly dogging his footsteps.
That accident occurred at Bee
Hive, on the East Coast
Demerara, just about four miles
west of where Rawle was stay-
ing with his parents.
According to reports, the
driver of the truck claimed he
swerved to avoid hitting some

cows which were on the road. In
an instant, the frightfully loud
impact, accompanied by an
equally loud clang of steel and
breaking windscreen broke the
silence of the countryside, and
three persons lay dead.
Killed on the spot were
Desmond Datterdeen, 40, the
owner and driver of the ill-fated
minibus; Mohamed Akbar, 54,
an employee of a private hospi-
tal here in the city; and 26-'year-
old Marisa Assaye, a Grade Ill
teacher and mother of one.

Among the ten other casu-
alties were Rawle Wood,
whose life was at one time said
to be hanging by a thread, and
his sister Jacqueline, who suf-
fered a dislocated neck-bone
among other injuries.

the doctors feared that it
would collapse too. Fortu-
nately, it didn't.
For about three weeks,
Rawle was on life support sys-
tems. T~hroulghout the period,
close relatives and friends fasted
and prayed, while the doctors
worked diligently. His wife and
mother would eventually join his
father at his bedside, and to-
gether they hoped for the best
as the doctors daily presented
their reports.
It was indeed a tall order,
but after six weeks of dedicated
work by the doctors, and about
TF$.5M, Rawle was eventually
snatched from the jaws of death.
Within 17 days, he began show-

On arrival at St Clair's, a

set to work on him. But the

Robert Persaud has
challenged Region Three
farmers to adapt to the
changes required to take full
advantage of the
opportunities created by the
global food situation,
He re-emphasized this dur-
ing a visit to Morashee, Blake
and the Parika Backdam, all on
the East Bank Essequibo where
he encouraged farmers to get on
board the 'Grow more' cam-
paign yesterday.
He advised them of the
Ministry's work to explore dif-
ferent avenues to assist farmers
in dealing with the challenges
posed by the steady increase in
fuel prices which creates in-
creases in fertilizers and chemi-
The Ministry, he said, has

invested significant sums to
modernize the sector. This in-
clude building of state-of-the-art
packaging facilities, printing and
distribution of farmers' manual,
clearing of major drainage and ir-
rigation canals, training of more
technical personnel and the
close monitoring of farms which
are all designed to equip them
with essential knowledge to be-
come successful farmers and en-
Farmers were assured
that the Ministry will con-
tinue to do its part, but they
too have a significant role to
play and to be proactive in
their operations.
The market-driven 'Grow
More' campaign launched in
March is one of the measures
taken by Government to cush-
ion the impact of high food

Since its launching, the
Minister and officials from
his Ministry have been vis-
iting communities to educate
farmers on methods to im-
prove farm management and
post harvest handling of pro-
SMinister Persaud noted that
the campaign has, in addition to
getting farmers to produce more,
served to educate farmers on
best practices.
Outlining the interven-
tions government has made
to cushion the impact of the
increased prices, Minister
Persaud, advised that Gov-
ernment was also trying to
purchase fertilizer directly
from producers.
He urged farmers to form
groups which will yield more

benefits for them. "We want our
farmers to be price givers and
not price takers." This, he as-
serted, can only be possible if
farmers adapt to changes re-
The farmers were encour-
aged to register with the new

Guyana Marketing Corporation
so that they could be linked
with potential buyers.
The representatives from
the Minister also distributed
seeds, and other agricultural
materials to farmers present
at the meeting. (GINA)

to power India to vi ctor y
...Kaplihits pow~e'fu 1115 for the Tigers

KARACHI, Pakistan (Reut~ers) Suresh :Raina continued
his fine Asia Cup form, scoring a second tournament cen-
tury to ease India to a seven-wicket win over Bangladesh
in the first super league stage match at the national sta-
dium yesterday.
Together with opener Gautam Gambhir (90), the pair put
on a third-wicket stand of 139 to help India to 284 for three
after 43.2 overs' in reply to Bangladesh's 284 for six.
The partnership overshadowed a maiden century from
Bangladeshi all-rounder Alok Kapali who stunned the In-
dians with a powerful 115 to steer Bangladesh to a fight-
mng total.

Kapal' i nng Assoneo t ebesthe ahd een fr Ba g eh
but rued his side's missed chances.
"We had a good total thanks to Kapall but our fielders
didn't support the bowlers. Maybe if we had got Gambhir
and Raina early it could~have made a dif ference," he said.
Raina, who notched 101 against Hong Kong and 84 against
Pakistan earlier in the tournament, hit 11 fours and three sixes
on his way to an undefeated 116 following scores of 101 and
84 against Hong Kong and Pakistan to spoil Kapali's day.

lit~dia started shakily as makeshift opener Robini Uthappa
was beaten for two by an in-swinger from Shahadat Hossain
and Rohit Sharma flicked Hessain stra~ightto Farhad Reza af-
ter quick-fire 22 from 23 balls.
:l:ambhir and Raina, yiho were bothi lucky to survive
d ~ped catches earlier in the innings tiibn set to their task with
Isidireaching 100 in just 16 overs.
'.ambhir eventually fell for 90 when he was caught at
mi~llick~et by Mashrafe M~ortaza off jli~ekin. Yuvraj Singh
1361 joined man-of-the-ynatch Raina at the crease to see
the game out.
Earlier Kapali, only ins tfie squad because of an injury to
batsman Aftab Ahmed, celeb~a~ted his lucky inclusion in the team
with a superb innings.
He hit 115 from 96 halls and his record sixth-wicket
stand of 112 with Mlahmudullah (26 not out) took
Bangladesh past their previous highest total against India
of 257-9, mlade in 2004
In~dia next face Pakista~n in Karachi on Wednesday while
Bangladesh play Sn Lanka at the same venue tomorrow.
However having player three matches in four days, Indian
skipper Mahendra Singh Dhon waS unhappy with the
tournament's tight schedule.' -:
"We have spent 36 of the 84 hours we have been here
on the field and that is tight. The schud~ule is not satisfac-
tory. T~wo teams are playing back-to-back games and two
are getting a break," he said.

By Simon Baskett
VIENNA, (Reuters) The
experience many of Spain's
squad have of winning titles
at youth level has helped
the senior team break a
record of underachievement
and will stand the players in
good stead for the Euro 2008
final with Germany.
"From my point of yiewl
think a lot of our success at
this tournament is due to a
generational change that has
taken place," Spain captain
Iker Casillas told a news con-
ference on the eve of the final
at the Ernst Happel stadium.
"All of us have played at
youth level and achieved big
things, something the senior
team hasn't managed," he
"Other teams like Portugal
and Italy are suffering from a
generational change, but Spain
has a young and yet experi-

enced team and that has helped us
a lot."
Spain have won a host of ma-

against Germany is only the
senior side's third appearance
in a final at a major tournament.
They beat the Soviet
Union 2-1 to win the Euro-
pean Championship on
home soil in 1964 and fin-
ished runners-up to France
20 years later.
"Tomorrow we have the
opportunity to end our poor
record at big events," said
Casillas. "We were close 24
years ago, but themeare always
two faces to any final. If we
lose, everything we have gone
through will be worth nothing.
"So getting to the final and
winning it is the most impor-
tant thing."

Casillas, who has won two
Champions Leagues with Real
Madrid, said there was no
comparison between reaching
the final of that competition
with his club and getting to the

showpiece match at the Euro-
pean Championship with
"In my opinion, it is
very different. Getting to the
final of the Champions
League is nothing like this.
"Real are f~ortunate in that
they are used to getting to fi-
nals, but this tournament is
only every four years. There
is greater sense of responsi-
bility and more nerves for this
one and we have 46 million
people behind us.

The 27-year-old added
that although Germany were
more experienced at playing
in finals, Spain's determina-
tion to claim their first tro-
phy in 44 years could help
them win through.
"Germany are a tough side
to face on these occasions in
that they have reached so
many finals," he said. "That
could working their favour. But
we have enthusiasm and desire
on our side.
Centre-back Carles Puyol

said coach Luis Aragones, who
will step down after the tourna-
ment, bore much of the respon-
sibility for the team's impressive
performance at Euro 2008.
"A lot of it is down to
him. He has showed us the
way and we are with him
100 per cent. He had to suf-
fer a lot of criticism before
but that helped make the
team stronger. We owe him
a lot. We have one match
left to do something for

Nadal, runner-up to five-
time champion Federer for the
last two years at the All-England
club, had been kept waiting un-
til nearly 1800 GMT to begin
his match on Centre Court
against the number 27 seed.
There was nothing to
choose between the players in
a tight first set but Nadal
raced through the second in 27
minutes and despite a brief
rally by Kiefer from 5-0 down
in the third, Nadal secured a
last 16 tie with Russian
Mikhail Youzhny.
"I am doing well, only los-
ing one set. From now on, I
know that I am going to have a
tough time," Nadal said after
completing a highly satisfactory
first week.
Britain Andy Murray
matched his best grand slam per-
formance with a 6-4, 6-7, 6-3, 6-
2 success over German Tommy
Haas, raising expectations among
a feverish home support that he
could become the first British
men's singles champion at
Wimbledon for more than 70

Second seed Jankovic

Jankovic strained her left
knee at the start of the match
but came through 2-6, 6-4, 6-2.
The 23-year-old, clearly strug-

took a medical timeout at the

ST GEORGE'S, Grenada (CMC) Injury-hit W~est Indies will
try to deny Australia a series-winning victory in the third
Digicel One-Day International at the Grenada National Sta-
dium today.
After losing the first match by 84 runs and the second by 63
runs, West Indies find themselves in a desperate situation, a point
which is not lost on coach John Dyson.
"We have to try and win the next game. It is as simple as
that," he said.
With West Indies battling a series of injuries over the past few
days, it is uncertain what line-up
they will field.
Changes have been consis-
tently made over the last three
matches and the trend is likely to
"It is matter of seeing who
is fit and who is not fit and
what the other selectors feel
that we need to do to put the
team on the park that gives us
the best chance of winning,"
Dyson said.
The major concerns stem
from captain Chris Gayle's long-
term groin injury, a calf strain for
Shivnarine Chanderpaul and a
groin injury to Ramnaresh
Sarwan, but a few other players
CHRIS GAYLE ar also suffering from niggling

In spite of the long spate of i jur s, Dyson is not too con-
cerned about the squad's overall level of fitness.
"You can have some injuries that are just unfortunate circum-
stances. Someone like Shiv bats and bats and bats in the nets and
in the middle and runs up and down umpteen times" the coach
"LHis fitness for cricket is fine. He can handle all the situ-
ations he is in. For some reason on one particular day, he gets
a muscle strain. I wouldn't attribute that to anything else but

With victories under the belt in the first two matches, Austra-
lia can wrap up the series with a third successive win that will
leave Welt Indies playing merely for pride in the last two games.
In the build-up to the match, West Indies had an af-
ternoon practice session yesterday that was affected by
rain, while the tourists were in the nets' in the morning.
The hosts' batting has been a huge letdown throughout the se-
ries. In the opening ODI in St Vincent on Tue~sday, they were dis-
missed for 189 off 39.5 overs, in pursuit of~srai' Australia's competitive
273 for eight.
In Friday's second match, the batting was again dismal. Chas-
ing aunoderate 214 for victory, they were in turmoil at 74 for seven
before drifting to 140 for eight off 41 overs, after chasilig a reduced

target of 204 following a rain intervention.
Gayle's has not fired since his return from injury, with
scores of 20 and 10 and his opening partner Xavier Marshall
has failed to recapture his Test form, and has scored 6 and 0.
The highest score from a West Indies batsman has been
Chanderpaul's 45 not out in Friday's losing cause..
Australia vice-captain Michael Clarke is keen on completing a
keen sweep but he expects West Indies to be more competitive.
"Our game plan is to win every game we play and hope-
fully we will leave the West Indies winning 5-0. It is going to
be an important game," he said.
"I don't think West Indies are that far away from being com-
petitive. Obviously I want Australia to win every game, but West
Indies are going to need a bit of luck and things to go their wlay.
"If they can get their full team on the park, we will be in for a
good game if they are all fit."
Australia fast bowler Brett Lee needs one wicket to
achieve 300 wickets in the shorter form of the game. If
he gets it, he will be the quickest bowler in the game to
the milestone.
A modest crowd watched Friday's match but local officials

are optimistic of a better turnout for today.
