Cessna crashes at ‘Ogle International’ in failed take-off bid - leaves pregnant passenger warded at GPHC

By Vanessa Narine and Shirley Thomas A CESSNA 206 aircraft belonging to Phoenix Airlines, number 8R-MML, crashed in a failed take-off yesterday at Ogle International Airport (OIA), East Coast Demerara. Apparently, no co-pilot was aboard. OIA Public Relations Consultant Christopher ‘Kit’ Nascimento told the Guyana Chronicle that the aircraft crashed at approximately 9.30am with three passengers on board destined for Kato in Region Eight. “(Aside from) the pilot, Raul Seecharran, there were one male and two females,” he said. One pregnant woman, 23-year-old Tamika Munroe, was transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) for treatment, and remains under observation at that facility. Contrary to reports

appearing in another section of the press, the Cane Grove, East Coast Demerara resident is not suffering from spinal injuries. “She is in stable condition,(is) fully conscious and (is) moving around; and had she suffered spinal injuries, she would not have been in this ward,” a staffer of the Maternity (E) Ward has said. Munroe’s unborn child is also in good shape, hospital authorities have confirmed. The other two passengers were treated for minor injuries at the Balwant Singh Hospital, whilst the pilot was similarly treated at St Joseph Mercy Hospital. All three have since been discharged. Nascimento said the aircraft travelled some 200 yards along the left side of the runway before flipping over on its side. The OIA Emergency Response Team immediately rushed to the scene of the crash and was able to assist the passengers out of

the aircraft.

reform of the Secretariat itself. “We are seeking to improve the efficiency in how we do what we do,” the Secretary General said. LaRocque noted that, in addition to the overall reform process, CARICOM is also looking at reforms at the member states’ level. He said, “The implementation of issues we focus on is done at the member states’ level.” The Secretary General

INVESTIGATION Eddie Doolal, Administrative and Finance Manager of Phoenix Airline, told this newspaper that officials of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCCA) have commenced investigating the cause of the crash. He said it is still unclear whether the aircraft, which is comprehensively covered under insurance, would be returned to service, as it was “badly” damaged in the incident. “Because of the safety requirements in the aviation industry, until we know the extent of damage, I cannot say if it will be returned to service,” Doolal said. He expressed the company’s sympathy for those affected, and the airline’s gratitude to personnel at the OIA Inc. for their assistance.

LaRocque optimistic reform will augur well for CARICOM

By Vanessa Narine AMBASSADOR Irwin LaRocque, Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), has updated the Guyana Chronicle in an exclusive interview on progress achieved in relation to the ongoing reform process. He said, “We have to be results-based: We have to be able to monitor what we are doing; how we are doing it; if we are getting there; and if not, why. The reform will do that.” The reform is also expected to address the critical issue of implementation, including the roles and responsibilities of all participants in the Community architecture: namely the Conference of Heads of Government, the Ministerial Councils, bodies such as the Committee of Central Bank Governors and the Budget Committee, the CARICOM Secretariat and the institutions; as well as issues

of governance, institutional and operational arrangements, and monitoring and evaluation mechanisms, La Rocque said. LaRocque said CARICOM hosted on Thursday a meeting of the change drivers -- representatives of the member states of CARICOM -- to review the first draft of the strategic plan, the first working draft. “The Change Facilitation Team has been recruited to assist with this process of change. The team is currently undertaking consultations in member states on the first ever Strategic Plan for the Community. The country consultations provide an opportunity for nationals of each member state and associate member state to influence the strategic direction of the Community,” he said.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE January 12, 2014

Nandlall rates Opposition’s behaviour as ‘latent, patent autocratism’ MINISTER of Legal Affairs and Attorney-General (AG), Anil Nandlall has described 2013 in the National Assembly as having one singular characteristic trend; that is, a relentless attempt by the Opposition to trespass into the province of the Executive. Speaking on the television programme, Roundtable, Minister Nandlall noted that though the Constitution has outlined the role and functions of the Executive and the Legislature, what is discernible since the Opposition has had control of the legislature, is “a constant attempt to increase those functional responsibilities, to extend the powers and to extend the jurisdiction of the legislature way beyond that which is contemplated and provided for by the constitution.” BUDGET CUT He noted that this extension of the role of the legislature manifested itself when the Opposition cut the 2013 Budget despite the Court ruling after the 2012 Budget that the Opposition in the National Assembly has no power to reduce expenditures put forward by the Minister of Finance in the form of the National Budget. The Court also ruled that it was the role of the Minister of Finance, being a delegate of the President to present those national estimates. Minister Nandlall said that “when the Opposition cut, (the budget) they not only cut, but they put forward their own estimates of a $1 in the instances where they have cut... and they passed those estimates. So in essence, not only have they performed an act of reduction of the estimates, which the constitution forbids them to do, but they have arrogated onto themselves, an Executive function, which essentially is the presentation of the estimates,” he said.   NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION There is also the case of the Opposition passing a No-Confidence motion against Minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee, which the Court and the Speaker of the House later ruled that they had no power to so do. The Opposition also attempted to gag Minister Rohee from speaking in the National Assembly in an effort to censure him, for what they termed incompetent performance of his duties as Minister of Home Affairs. “Again if we refer to the Constitution we see that the Minister of Home Affairs is an Executive Officer, he is a delegate of the President, appointed by the President, and the functions which he performs in the discharge of his ministerial responsibilities are Executive functions. If he defaults, or if he is incompetent in the performance of those functional responsibilities, then it is the President who appointed him, who must recall his appointment or censure him. It is not open to the legislature to censure an Executive Officer in respect of the performance of his executive functions,” Minister Nandlall pointed out.  

DIRECTING FINANCE MINISTER There were also other instances where the Opposition sought to impose on the Executive policies, or effect change of policies by way of motions. Minister Nandlall noted that in many instances the policies that the Opposition was seeking to implement were unlawful and in violation of the constitution. He pointed to the Opposition’s move to get the Minister of Finance to deposit in the Consolidated Fund, monies that are held by several statutory agencies. The AG pointed out that these agencies are governed by legislation that stipulate where their monies are to be deposited. He noted too, that the Financial Management and Accountability Act (FMAA) which permit these agencies to be created, also allows for their monies MINISTER of Legal Affairs to be kept separate and apart from the and Attorney-General (AG) Consolidated Fund. Anil Nandlall The Constitution itself in a provision which deals with finances, specifically allows for the establishment of these agencies, and for their finances to be kept separate and apart from the consolidated funds. “So you have an Opposition in the Parliament using a one-seat majority, moving motions, directing the Minister of Finance, to disregard the Constitution, the statutory agencies’ statutory obligations, provided by their statutes that create them and to disregard expressed provisions of the Financial Management and Accountability Act, and the constitution, to basically invade these statutory authorities, disregard their internal-governmental structures, disregard their board of directors, go into their bank accounts and take out money from their bank accounts and deposit them into the Consolidated Fund,” Minister Nandlall noted. “We have had several motions to that effect passed. These motions are unconstitutional, unlawful and they are a complete abrogation of the role of a legislature,” he said. SEPARATION OF POWERS Minister Nandlall said that the Opposition in the Legislature has no power to cause the violation of the laws and no power to compel the Executive by the way of motion or otherwise to perform functions that are executive in nature. Every attempt to do so violates the constitutional doctrine of separation of powers.

“It would be a Community in which regional plans and policies are harmonised with national plans and policies. The national would become regional and the regional national. We would have deepened the integration process, with a single economic space (being) a reality, and a closer convergence of economic policies.” He maintained that the focus is the creation of a Caribbean Community in which the people have “tangible proof that integration is working for them”, and that their domestic space extends from Belize in the west to Barbados in the east, from Suriname in the south to The Bahamas in the north, and all in between. “This would mean being able to travel freely, change their currency, and have the families who move treated, to all intents and purposes, as citizens of their adopted country,” LaRocque said. He added that his vision for CARICOM will see: goals achieved from frank discussions and resolution of concerns; foreign policy co-ordination strengthened as a means of achieving our development goals; the embrace of CCJ by all member states in both its jurisdictions, as a step towards completing the circle of sovereignty for the region; a single CARICOM ICT space in which a telephone call from Port-of-Spain to Kingston is a local call and broadband is ubiquitous and easily accessible to all; and the achievement of sustainable growth and development, where there is confidence and belief in where we can go and what we can achieve together, where its institutions are seen as reliant and integral to achieving our goal of a Community for all. “I intend to deliver a secretariat that is strategic in outlook and (is) efficient, effective and responsive in serving the needs of its member states and providing leadership to the integration arrangements,” LaRocque assured.

LaRocque optimistic ...

Vision; the Strategic Plan for Regional Economic Development, on which there was close collaboration between the Secretariat and UWI; the priorities articulated by Heads of Government themselves at their retreat held in Guyana in May 2011; and approved policies and action plans in a range of areas, such as agriculture, energy, industry, security, health, youth, ICT and Climate Change, to name a few. These policies and programmes are then taken in the context of the rapidly changing global environment that impacts our member states to chart the way forward, he said. “What is coming out of this exercise is the synergies coming out of our work, our change drivers, the people in the Community and our member states and associate member states….The people of CARICOM support CARICOM,” He said. VISION Expounding on the vision for CARICOM’s future, at the Thirty-seventh UNESCO General Conference in Paris, France, in November, LaRocque said: “It would be a Community in which all are involved. There would be a system of meaningful consultations from which a free flow of ideas emanate, allowing for the distillation of the best and most practical. This would help to capture the imagination and interest of all, and allow the people to seize a stake in the integration process - allowing for the sense of ‘being Caribbean’ to take precedence over all else. It would also lead to more efficient implementation of decisions, having had the benefit of the widest possible input.

According to the Attorney General, the role of the Legislature is to participate in the passing of laws, not to bring Bills to the National Assembly for enactment. He said that the Opposition in the Legislature ought to be working with the Government. He noted that they have to get the government’s support in relation to bills that they need to bring to the National Assembly, for the simple reason being, after the bill is passed into law it is the Executive that has to administer and to execute those laws. The legislature also has an oversight accountability function. This is largely done in two ways, in the Committee of Supply and in the Public Accounts Committee (PAC.) In the Committee of Supply, they are empowered to question every Minister in respect of every budgetary allocation. They can either support or not support the particular budgetary allocation if they are dissatisfied with the answers provided. In that case, the Appropriation Act is amended to delete that particular budgetary allocation that has not been supported. This is a process that takes about two weeks after the budget is presented, and the debates are concluded. In terms of the PAC, this Committee is always chaired by the opposition. Its principal functions is to examine the Auditor General’s report and to call before that committee, any Minister, Government Officer or State Functionary to answer any questions they may have in respect of matters raised in the AG’s report. They also have a responsibility to generally oversight government’s functions and policies, and to discuss and get their views in the formulation of policies. They can do so, on the floor of the National Assembly by asking questions, or by moving motions to titillate discussion on any topic or ask questions whilst in the Parliamentary Committee system. The Parliamentary Committee system allows for the opposition to scrutinise sectoral policies and performance of the government, for example the Economic Services, Foreign Relations and the Natural Resources Committees. In these committees, the opposition can summon the sector minister and the staff to answer any question or discuss any matter that falls within the Minister’s sector. AUTOCRATISM The AG posited that the Opposition’s extending of the power of the Legislature smacks of “latent, patent autocratism that overwhelms the Opposition in the National Assembly.”         He reminded that the major Opposition, the APNU is largely comprised of the PNC, which has a long history of dictatorship and authoritarianism. “I believe that very little has changed, so they see politics as an area where they have to dominate; where what they say is what must prevail. So, democracy is an antithesis to them,” he said. The Opposition’s tendency to trespass into the province of the Executive also stems from a genuine ignorance of the constitution, the laws of the land and the role and functions of the National Assembly, he concluded.

Former Israeli PM and military commander Ariel Sharon dead at 85

By Dan Williams

JERUSALEM -(Reuters) Former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, the trailblazing warrior-statesman who stunned Arab foes with his dramatic turnarounds, died yesterday aged 85, after eight years in a coma caused by a stroke. Sharon left historic footprints on the Middle East through military invasion and Jewish settlement-building on occupied land the Palestinians seek for a state but also with a shock decision to withdraw from the Gaza Strip. The United States and other foreign powers mourned Sharon as a peacemaker, noting his late pursuit of dialogue with the Palestinians. Those negotiations continue under Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, though differences remain wide. Sharon died at Sheba Medical Center, near Tel Aviv, where he had been in a coma since being hit by a stroke at the pinnacle of his power as prime

minister in January 2006. His condition had declined steeply since the middle of last week. “Arik was a valorous soldier and a bold statesman who contributed much to the security and building up of the State of Israel,” said President Shimon Peres, a former political ally of Sharon and, with the ex-premier’s death, the last of the Jewish state’s founders still in public life. “Arik loved his people and his people loved him,” Peres said, using the nickname of Sharon, a famously burly and blunt figure with a prizefighter’s rolling gait. “He knew no fear and never feared pursuing a vision.” An Israeli official said Sharon’s remains would lie in state in parliament in Jerusalem on Sunday. A memorial service will be held there on Monday morning, followed by an afternoon funeral near Sycamore Farm, Sharon’s residence in southern Israel. Among foreign dignitaries expected to attend are U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov

As Sharon’s finance minister in 2005, Netanyahu quit in protest at the Gaza plan. Netanyahu now points to Hamas’s rise in balking at similar West Bank withdrawals sought by Abbas. Mourning Sharon, Netanyahu emphasized his military,

rather than political, exploits: “He was first and foremost a brave warrior and great strategist, among the greatest of Israel Defence Force commanders.” Palestinians in Gaza were handing out sweets to passersby and motorists in celebration of Sharon’s passing. “We have become more confident in victory with the departure of this tyrant (Sharon),” said Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri. “Our people today feel extreme happiness at the death and departure of this criminal whose hands were smeared with the blood of our people and the blood of our leaders here and in exile.” “THE BULLDOZER” A lifelong rancher renowned for his big appetite, Sharon became known as “the Bulldozer”, in part for his headlong pursuit of hardline policies that included settlement expansion in territory Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war. As a young paratroop officer in the 1950s, he championed night-time reprisals - one of which killed dozens of civilians in the village of Qibya - for cross-border Arab guerrilla raids on the fledgling Israel. He was widely hated by Arabs over the 1982 massacre of hundreds of Palestinian refugees in Beirut by Lebanese Christian militiamen allied to Israel. An Israeli state inquiry found Sharon, who as defence minister engineered Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon and war against Palestinian guerrillas there, indirectly responsible for the camp killings, and he was forced to resign his post. “The Palestinian people remember what Sharon did and tried to do to our people and their dream of forming a state,”

Wael Abu Youself, a senior member of Abbas’s umbrella Palestine Liberation Organisation, told Reuters. “Despite the settlements and wars that he launched against us, here and in Lebanon and with the war crime of Sabra and Shatila (camps), Sharon has departed and the Palestinian people remain on their land.” Sharon’s devastating illness struck shortly after he quit the right-wing Likud party and founded a centrist faction with the declared aim of advancing peace with the Palestinians, whose 2000-2005 uprising he had battled as prime minister. OBAMA: COMMITTED TO PEACE Former U.S. president George W. Bush, a Republican, saw in Sharon’s strategy a reflection of his own “war on terror” and they formed a close alliance. On Saturday, appreciation for Sharon came from both sides of the U.S. political divide. “We reaffirm our unshakable commitment to Israel’s security and our appreciation for the enduring friendship between our two countries,” said President Barack Obama, a Democrat. “We continue to strive for lasting peace and security for the people of Israel, including through our commitment to the goal of two states living side by side in peace and security,” “As Israel says goodbye to Prime Minister Sharon, we join with the Israeli people in honoring his commitment to his country,” Obama said. British Prime Minister David Cameron called Sharon “one of the most significant figures in Israeli history”, saying he “took brave and controversial decisions in pursuit of peace”.

CARICOM pledges continued support for

Haiti over DR court ruling

GEORGETOWN, Guyana, (CMC) – The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Friday said it would continue to support the efforts of Haiti to get the Dominican Republic to reverse a controversial Constitutional Court ruling that has the effect of rendering stateless, thousands of people of Haitian descent. CARICOM Secretary General Irwin La Roqcue, in accepting the credentials of Ambassador Benjamin Noel, as Haiti’s Plenipotentiary Representative to the 15-member regional bloc, described the court ruling as “unjust and discriminatory”. He recalled that CARICOM has already “condemned this ruling which violates regional and international human rights obligations. “The Community continues to accord this matter the highest priority and calls on the Dominican Republic to right this terrible wrong. The Community will also continue to provide support to Haiti as it fights for the respect for the rights and citizenship of members of its Diaspora,” La Rocque said. CARICOM has already indicated that it would not consider the Dominican Republic’s application to join the grouping until the court ruling is reversed. Earlier this week, officials from Haiti and the Dominican Republic met in the northern Haitian town of Ouanamin agreed to undertake measures that would guarantee the rights of people of Haitian descent living in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean country. According to the communiqué issued after the meeting the officials also discussed how to solve the issue caused by a ruling by the Constitutional Court. Dominican authorities have unveiled a plan that would help regularize the situation of undocumented people living in the country with a population of nearly 10 million. “The Dominican party announced the adoption, within the coming weeks, of a legislation that will address cases which had not been taken into account in the regularization plan,” according to the communiqué, noting that both governments also reiterated their will to regularise the situation of Haitian workers in the Dominican Republic. La Rocque in welcoming the new diplomat said Port Au Prince, CARICOM’s only French-speaking member, had since its acceptance into the regional bloc, had played and continued to play a meaningful role in furtherance of the regional integration movement. “We, as a Community, welcome what Haiti brings to CARICOM, which President Martelly outlined as a “market of nearly ten million people, unsuspected natural assets and

a rich cultural heritage”. Haiti undoubtedly enriches the cultural diversity of the Community. President Martelly rightly de-

CARICOM Secretary General Irwin La Roqcue scribed Haiti as an opportunity, one yet to be fully discovered by our people. “ La Rocque also made mention of the death and destruction caused by the 2010 earthquake and also the recent effect the weather had on St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia and Dominica. “These natural events, earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions and torrential rains and floods, destroy lives, property and infrastructure but they also bring out the best in

our Community, our solidarity. I take this opportunity therefore to say to our brothers and sisters of the affected countries, as we had said to Haiti in 2010, that the Community is here for every member state and every CARICOM citizen, and it is here most,” La Rocque added. In his address, Ambassador Noel the presentation of his credentials coincide with the destruction caused by the earthquake and that the Haitian people “are working very hard to rebuild the country stronger than ever. “The economy is growing at a positive rate, the business climate has improved as well as the security environment, as you have witnessed during your recent visit in Haiti. Haiti is back on track, “Haiti is open for business,” he added. He said Haiti was also calling for the “full integration of French as one of the Official Languages of the Community, along with English. “The achievement of this goal will benefit the people of the region,” he said. Haiti’s President Michel Martelly had first proposed the idea when he addressed regional leaders at their annual summit in St. Kitts-Nevis three years ago.

PM Stuart meets with dismissed workers

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC) –Prime Minister Freundel Stuart says workers who have been laid off from a programme administered by the Ministry of Environment and Drainage would receive separation packages that are now being quantified. The National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) had accused the government of using technicalities to dismiss the workers who were employed under the National Environmental Enhancement Programme (NEEP). The Stuart administration announced late last month that it would lay off 3,000 public servants as it seeks to reverse the ailing economy. Prime Minister Stuart, accompanied by Environment and Drainage Minister Dr. Denis Lowe and the Minister of Labour and Social Security, Dr. Esther Byer Suckoo, met with the workers on Friday and later told reporters that there was a need to restructure the NEEP project. Prime Minister Stuart said he thought it was necessary to meet directly with the affected workers in the Programme, which was introduced in 2008 and employed 392 people. “I myself was not terribly amused at the way in which the matter was handled at the end of the year. But, given all the

Former PM returns to Parliament

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Two years after he suffered a stroke that left him partially paralysed, former prime minister Patrick Manning Friday returned to Parliament with Speaker Wade Mark leading both government and opposition legislators in welcoming the country’s longest serving legislator.

information that was drawn to my attention, I fully appreciated that the Ministry of the Civil Service and the Ministry of Environment found themselves

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart in a fairly tight time schedule. “So, I really felt I needed to express my regret to the workers that the matter was handled as untidily as it was… But of course, I gave the explanation and they understood. “What we have to do and what the Ministry of the Environment is committed to doing and has already embarked upon is a restructuring of the programme, put[ting] it on a completely different footing, where funding can be accessed for it with a little more convenience than at present; so that as many as possible of the persons now involved in the programme can be absorbed and we can continue with the work that those workers were doing.” Stuart said that the unemployed workers would receive separation packages which were now being quantified by the Ministry of Environment, “and

will engage the attention of Parliament not too long from now”. He said his administration would also put in place advisory mechanisms for the workers in case they needed advice on how to make effective use of their packages. “In addition to that, they have been made aware by the Minister of Labour…that there is still that BDS $10 million (One BDS dollar = US$0.50 cents) training fund available and that there will be opportunities for training with a stipend attached. “So, there is not all darkness ahead. There is some light and we intend to work with these men and women and help them to keep their lives together,” he added. Meanwhile, former prime minister Sir Lloyd Erskine Sandiford, has defended the decision to cut jobs in the public service given the fiscal problems facing the government. “The biggest expenditure of any Government in Barbados to date goes to wages and salaries. “And if you have to bring how much you spend (in line) to how much you earn, that is a critical statistic that has to be taken into consideration, and that is what the Government, through its Ministry of Finance, is seeking to deal with,” Sir Erskine told the online publication Barbados TODAY. “There is no running away from it. And in addition to that, if you are stopped by a constitutional amendment to reduce (expenditure) through pay cuts you are saying people have to go home, if you have to deal with such a situation.


CARICOM’s firm stand with DR


HOSE who were rightly apprehensive about CARICOM having an invited observer presence at a meeting in Haiti on January 7 between the Dominican Republic and Haiti to discuss bilateral matters including trade and the environment, would be relieved by an official re-affirmation on Friday that there could be no business as usual with the DR so long as it maintains a new law that effectively denies citizenship to immigrants of Haitian descent. That reaffirmation came from the CARICOM’s Secretary General, Irwin LaRocque, while welcoming Haiti’s first accredited ambassador to the 15-member Community, Mr Peterson Benjamin Noel at the Seretariat’s offices at Turkeyen. It was consistent with a recent decision taken by the CARICOM Bureau, which functions as a management committee between meetings of Heads of Government, that since the relevant discriminatory law, as approved by the DR’s constitutional court, was immoral and repugnant to basic human decency, it would be difficult to maintain normal good relations with that Spanish-speaking country of the Caribbean region. The DR  is not a member of the Community but it belongs to

CARICOM calls on DR to ‘right the wrong’ against Haitians SECRETARY-General of the Caribbean Community, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, has reiterated the Community’s call on the Dominican Republic to take steps to “right the wrong” resulting from a ruling on nationality made by the Constitutional Court of the Dominican Republic. The ruling has retroactively stripped of citizenship tens of thousands of nationals from the Dominican Republic, mostly Haitians, and has rendered them stateless. Speaking at a ceremony where Haiti’s first plenipotentiary representative, His Excellency Peterson Benjamin Noel, was presenting his Letters of Credence to CARICOM Secretary General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque at the CARICOM Secretariat’s offices at Turkeyen, ECD, Ambassador LaRocque noted that, on behalf of the entire Community, the Bureau of the Conference of Heads of Government condemned the Dominican Republic’s ruling, which violated regional and international human rights obligations. He said CARICOM would continue to provide support to Haiti as it fights to have respected the rights and citizenship of members of its Diaspora.

And the EU is aware of CARICOM’s stand to suspend normal CARIFORUM relations with the DR unless it reverses the new law that has effectively rendered stateless thousands of immigrants of Haitian descent.

to the Community, Secretary General LaRocque, urged that the DR take steps to “right the wrong” resulting from the constitutional court’s ruling on nationality, a judgment that, he noted, retroactively stripped tens of thousands of nationals of Haitian descent and, consequently, rendered them “stateless”. CARICOM has more than a moral obligation to stay firm in its support with Haiti and the EU itself may need to publicly state its position, in the context of CARICOM/EU relations, if its reported “quiet diplomacy” fails to have the required effect.

Guyana hailed as leader in regional fight against climate change

President Donald Ramotar

By Vanessa Narine AS St Vincent and the Grenadines and Saint Lucia and Dominica continue to grapple with the devastating effects of the torrential rains that assailed the Eastern Caribbean states last month, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, CARICOM Secretary-General, has assured that climate change will be a focus for the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) moving forward. Hailing Guyana as a leader in the region, Ambassador LaRocque praised the efforts of both former President Bharrat Jagdeo and the support of current President Donald Ramotar in sending assistance to the beleaguered EC island states. He said, “Guyana continues to be supportive of the region’s approach to tackling climate change. “Former President Bharrat

Jagdeo is a key regional player; and recently, President Donald Ramotar has called for greater rallying of efforts to address the threat of climate change.” The Secretary-General noted that climate change was, is, and will continue to be advanced as a major focus area for CARICOM. “We need to build our resilience to withstand the shock,” LaRocque said. He said that those who remain climate change skeptics only need to visit the Eastern Caribbean countries that are dealing with the aftermath of the devastating effects of a climatic event that hit hard during the Christmas season. He said, “These natural events -- earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions and torrential rains and floods -destroy lives, property and infrastructure; but they also bring out the best in our Community

Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves -- our solidarity. “…the Community is here for every member state and every CARICOM citizen, and it is here most especially in times of distress,” LaRocque said as he reiterated the importance of climate change on the CARICOM agenda. “We expect it to be a focus of the next meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government.” In the last week, President Ramotar received a delegation from the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), and among issues raised by President Ramotar was Guyana’s keen interest in promoting and supporting increased action in the Caribbean region on the issue of climate change. He indicated to the delegation that in light of the increasing and devastating impacts to the region from

CARICOM Secretary General Irwin La Roqcue

extreme weather events linked to climate change, Guyana would be advocating that climate change be a main item for discussion at the next session of CARIOCM Heads of Government. The President also welcomed the recent statement made by incoming Chairman of CARICOM, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, which calls for CARICOM’s prioritisation of climate change issues. He underlined the need for the region to be more vocal on climate change, and the need for a strong presence by CARICOM Heads of Government in 2014 at two main climate change fora: the UN Secretary General’s Climate Change Summit, slated for September, on the margins of the UN General Assembly; and the Conference of

Parties Meeting on the Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) in Lima, Peru, in December. President Ramotar stressed the need for the region’s negotiators to be provided with clear guidance in accordance with the region’s position on key issues. He referred to the fact that while the region has a strong position on climate change, as outlined in the Liliendaal Declaration of 2009, there is room for a strengthening of that position. President Ramotar also made clear Guyana’s willingness to work with the CCCCC and CARICOM to support briefing sessions for the negotiators prior to major UNFCCC sessions, as well as on sharing Guyana’s experience in developing and implementing a Low Carbon Development Strategy and its REDD+ initiatives.

Considerable progress seen in Haiti since deadly 2012 earthquake

highest aspirations.”

FOUR years have passed since that devastating 2010 earthquake levelled Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital, wreaked havoc on the lives of multiple thousands of Haitians, and ruined the country’s infrastructure and local economy. Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), has noted that there has since been “considerable progress” made in rebuilding Haiti. Addressing the issue in a statement on Friday, Ambassador LaRocque said: “Though the task is not yet completed as it continues its reconstruction process following the catastrophic earthquake of 2010, the thoughts and prayers of the (CARICOM) Community continue to be with the People of Haiti as they commemorate the fourth anniversary of the tragedy (which occurred) on 12th January… The Government and People of Haiti have shown themselves to be resilient, creative, focused and determined. These qualities have allowed Haiti to overcome many of the challenges that have threatened its aspirations. “This is not surprising when one takes into account the proud history of Haiti and its epic and victorious struggle for independence against the odds and to overthrow slavery. These qualities come into play once again in your country’s quest to achieve its

HARD WORK The recently accredited Haitian plenipotentiary representative to the Community, Peterson Benjamin Noel, also addressed the issue, making it clear that the Haitian people were working hard to rebuild their country. He said much is being done to rebuild the economy, and improve the business climate as well as the security environment. Noel said, “Tens of thousands of people perished in the devastating earthquake four years ago. “Haitian people, hand in hand, are working very hard to rebuild the country stronger than ever. The economy is growing at a positive rate, (and) the business climate has improved as well as the security environment, as you have witnessed during your recent visit to Haiti,” the ambassador told the CARICOM Secretary General He stressed that Haiti is back on track. “Haiti is open for business,” Noel said. Haiti’s tax office has recorded 7,883 new businesses in Port-au-Prince from November 2010; most (1,302) are “general”, while 1,207 are “small grocers and general merchants”. Several hundred NGOs are included in this total. When the 7.0 magnitude quake struck near Port-au-Prince,

Scenes from the 2010 earthquake

3.5 million people were affected; and an estimated 220,000 died while over 300,000 were injured. An estimated 25 per cent of civil servants in Port-au-Prince also died. More than 188,383 houses were badly damaged, and 105,000 were destroyed by the earthquake, leaving 1.5 million people homeless. Over 600,000 people left their home area in Port-au-Prince and mostly stayed with host families. At its peak, 1.5 million people were living in camps, with over 100,000 being at critical risk from storms and flooding. After the quake, there were 19 million cubic metres of rubble and debris in Port-au-Prince – enough to fill a line of shipping containers stretching end to end from London to Beirut. Some 4,000 schools were damaged or destroyed, along with 60 per cent of Government and administrative buildings, 80 per cent of schools in Port-au-Prince, and 60 per cent of schools in the South and West Departments. Unrelated to the earthquake, but causing aid response challenges, was the outbreak of cholera in October 2010. By July 2011, some 5,899 persons had died as a result of the outbreak, and 216,000 had been infected. Several million dollars have been raised in aid, and the local government has been undertaking a massive campaign to attract investors as Haiti rebuilds.


Of our region’s crime and economic woes Analysis by Rickey Singh

AS I was leaving a church service last Sunday in Barbados, a known member of the congregation approached me to lament, with evident sadness: “Why the page-one news headlines have to be so depressing?” She then declared, “We need a break!” and moved on before I could mutter a response. Truth is, as readers of the ‘Chronicle’ would be aware, socalled  “bad news” is not only a reflection of life in Barbados where I live and work; it’s a sad, depressing reality at this time across our Caribbean region and including media in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana, for which I am also a regular contributor. Contrary to what some readers, viewers and listeners of news and commentaries may suspect, media decision-makers, who are known for their adherence to the ethics and principles of the journalism profession, do not as a norm seek to publish/present news deemed by consumers of information as “bad news” in preference to what’s rated in the public domain as “good news”. As I understand it, the region’s media, in general -- minus an irritating print and electronic minority scattered across our  Community -- endeavour to report and analyse with a commitment consistent with the basic tenets of journalism. However, these observations apart, today’s column is primarily focused on some social and economic problems currently afflicting a few regional countries. Today, 12 days into 2014, it’s ironical that within the greater Caribbean region we have Finance Ministers of two of the best known tourism-based economies—Jamaica and Barbados—anxious to assure citizens against new taxes while coping with agreed prescriptions from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Between May and December last year, first Jamaica, and then Barbados were compelled to enter into  fiscal management arrangements to overcome mounting economic problems to sustain vital social sector services. With the dawn of 2014, their respective Finance Ministers  were last week anxiously assuring the public against any introduction of “new taxes”, undoubtedly hoping  to secure some breathing space in coping with multiple pressing social and economic challenges.                              VENEZUELA AND T&T Further, that two largely energy-based economies of  our region, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela, are now desperately engaged in combatting the scourge of murders and robberies in a climate of awful spreading violence. Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela, long recognised as economies where ‘black gold’ (oil) has provided them with special comparative advantages in responding to social and economic challenges, are currently experiencing a most critical period of gun-related murders and robberies. Following the murder last Tuesday of Venezuela’s internationally

famous beauty queen, actress and soap-opera, Monica Spear, and her Irish ex-husband, President Nicolas Maduro’s Minister of the Interior, Miguel Rodriguez, hastily summoned a special meeting of all governors of the 23 States as well as representatives of the 79 towns. The purpose is to launch a nation-wide plan to combat the epidemic` of criminality, aware that Venezuela, for all its oil resources and economic investments, is currently burdened with the highest level of violence in many years. Across in Trinidad and  Tobago, deemed just last month by the World Bank as “one of the wealthiest and well developed nations in the Caribbean region,” Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar was telling the media -- also last Tuesday -- following a National Security Council meeting, of the implementation of a nation-wide plan to confront the horrors of spreading criminality that accounted for some 20 murders in the first seven days of 2014, and climbing.                                             RECALLING JAMAICA?                Perhaps anxious for the country to avoid acquiring the once notorious reputation of Jamaica in recent years as the so-called “murder capital” of the Caribbean region, the Prime Minister pledged to make “maximum use” of the combined resources of the police and army to stop an “evil and violent minority” from continuing to inflict harm,

fear and tragedy on the lives of our citizens…” People everywhere who embrace the rule of law would, I believe, readily share the hopes of both the governments and citizens of Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago for success in their respective national campaigns to stop the wave of killings and robberies. Even, that is, as they share the hopes of the Finance Ministers of Barbados (Chris Sinckler) and Jamaica (Peter Phillips) to achieve set objectives with their respective IMF-based fiscal management programmes to at least avoid the introduction of “new taxes” during 2014 amid lingering apprehension about the future. New initiatives at combating crime and spurring economic growth, regionally, are said to be high on the agenda of CARICOM Heads of Government for their half-yearly Inter-Sessional Meeting which has been planned for next month in St.Vincent and the Grenadines, one of the three Eastern Caribbean countries whose economies were severely affected last month by devastating flood waters.

GDF denies it allows unlawful possession of arms

THE Guyana Defence Force (GDF) has refuted a statement, attributed to attorney-at-law Mr. Patrice Henry and published in various sections of the local media in their coverage of the occurrence of a soldier who has been charged with being in unlawful possession of one of the Army’s weapons. A press release, on Thursday, refutes the attribution to the lawyer who, in defence of his client, Lance Corporal Devon Harris, said it is entirely without merit that the culture of the arms store allows him to carry guns. The GDF Security Standing Orders set out, very clearly, the procedures to be followed by its Arms Stores personnel with regard to the issuance of the Force’s weapons, the release stated. “These orders expressly permit GDF Officers and Ranks to be in

possession of its weapons only in the execution of their military duty. As an arms store personnel, Lance Corporal Devon Harris could not have issued, to himself, any weapon from the Force’s Arms Store, since this would be in direct contravention of the Security Standing Orders; nor was he permitted to have a weapon in his possession when not on military duty. “It is instructive to note that an authority to issue document has to be signed by the Commanding Officer, for a weapon to be issued to any rank,” the GDF explained. The Force, categorically, stated that there has never been nor currently is a “culture” within its administration and operations that facilitates, encourages or allows for any of its members to be in unlawful possession of the Force’s weapons or ammunition.

Multi-million-dollar hotel opens at Farm

THE multi-million-dollar Park Vue Hotel was opened at Farm, East Bank Demerara. The hotel, which has a black, white and grey colour scheme, boasts a pool, a lounge, a restaurant, and a gift shop. The design features a fresh and modern style in local hotels, and the staff is focused on providing visitors a ‘signature’ experience. The hotel’s 200-plus rooms reflect five custom styles, with costs ranging from US$99 to US$199.

DHB back to normal after accident Hundreds of commuters were delayed for several hours after a vessel traversing the Demerara River accidentally slammed into the Demerara Harbour Bridge (DHB), causing that structure to develop mechanical problems which eventually led to its closure in order to effect repairs. After the incident, mobilized workers of the DHB began working on the bridge,and it was soon declared open for normal traffic.

Hope Canal misses 2013 deadline

THE $3.6B East Demerara Water Conservancy (EDWC) Northern Relief Channel has missed the scheduled December 31, 2013 deadline for completion, the major reason being that the contractor implementing the eight-door sluice component of the project has thus far completed just about 50 percent of that task. Considering that the project is being built for the first time in Guyana, and will be a major engineering construction achievement done by Guyanese engineers and workers, the Ministry of Agriculture has extended by two months the deadline by which the project must be commissioned, and is working with the contractor to have more than 90 percent of the work completed so that the project becomes functional by February 14.


Stabroek Bazaar beggar sentenced to four months’ imprisonment for assault KWAME Bruce was sentenced to four months’ imprisonment by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine Beharry for unlawfully wounding Pauline Simon at Stabroek Bazaar in Georgetown, and for using threatening language to her husband, Safraz Ghani. The husband and wife were shopping in the Stabroek Bazaar area at about 13:10 hrs when the defendant, in crutches, approached Ghani and told him that he ‘did stuff’ to him when he was in jail. Bruce then dropped the crutches, pulled out an ice pick from his waist, and advanced on the couple. After Simon saw what was happening, she held on to the weapon and tried to disarm the defendant, but he hit her to the mouth with his hand, causing her to receive a swelling and laceration to her top lip.

Investors’ confidence in Guyana under political attack THE decision of Muri Brasil Ventures Inc. to abandon its exploratory licence in Guyana is regrettable, and threatens the likely loss of investor confidence in Guyana, Cabinet Secretary Dr Roger Luncheon has observed. Cabinet has examined the implications of the decision made in the natural resources sector by Muri Brazil, and has noted the similarities in the way the political Opposition dealt with this project and that of the Amaila Falls Hydropower project. “Combined with the concurrent Parliamentary Opposition to the Anti-Money Laundering Amendment Bill and the consequences that led to CFATF November recommendation to blacklist Guyana; that combined with these incidents of loss of projects by investors, Cabinet was convinced that these impediments to the Government’s plans for economic development in Guyana, these were real impediments being created, being sustained by the Parliamentary Opposition,” Dr Luncheon said.


GRA launches US$4.3M mobile container scanner THE GRA HAS launched its US$4.3M state-of-the-art mobile container scanner, which will significantly boost its operations. The mobile container/vehicle inspection system is the first such system in the world using an electronic linear accelerator (LINAC) as its X-ray source. The bodywork dimension is designed to follow the rules of the road that apply in different countries; and upon arriving at a new site, the working preparation time of the system is less than thirty minutes. The system, manufactured by NUCTECH, is being utilized in more than twenty countries and districts.

Prisoner disarms constable, shoots corporal dead DETECTIVE Corporal 14998 Seburn Elias was shot dead by 23-year-old Delon Abrams of South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, a prisoner escaping from lawful custody at the Turkeyen Station, and with whom he had had a scuffle. At the Accident and Emergency Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital, the prisoner disarmed a police constable after giving him a sound trashing. The constable put up a fight, but was overpowered by the prisoner, who took the weapon and attempted to fire it, but was unsuccessful. The prisoner then bolted out of the hospital compound and into a nearby community, with the disarmed rank in full pursuit.


Police swoop down on Orange Walk Businesses

THE Guyana Police Force swooped down on businesses operating in Orange Walk, Bourda, seizing beverages and other items from shop owners as they effected a joint operation with the Loss Reduction Department of the Guyana Power and Light Inc. The Guyana Chronicle was informed that the power company was investigating reports it had received that businesses operating in Orange Walk, better known as “Sweet Point”, were stealing electricity or otherwise tampering with GPL connections; and GPL enlisted the support of the GPF in order to effectively investigate those reports.

Carlotta Dodson dies MS. Carlotta Dodson, former Assistant Commissioner of Police and Deputy Chief Immigration Officer, died at a city hospital on Monday, following a brief period of illness.

Snake causes stir at the zoo

A live snake approximately three feet in length was discovered on the fence that protects the caimans swamp at the Zoological Park when it was noted by a passerby. He alerted the park security, who then took a twig and pushed the snake back into some nearby trees. It created quite a stir among the persons present, while parents could be seen ushering their kids away and out of the zoo. 

Terrence Holder dies Veteran broadcaster Ter-

rence Holder, who until recently held the position of Deputy General Manager of the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company Limited (GT&T), has died after battling with cancer. He was 73, and had retired on account of illness. He was better known for his involvement in broadcasting as the General Manager of the Guyana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) for a number of years.

GRA to randomly select imported goods for examination

THE Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) has indicated that it is introducing a system of random selection of imported goods for examination with effect from January 2014. The main feature of this system will involve daily selection of imported goods (commercial quantities) for examination by GRA officers. This selection will be done at the Guyana Revenue Authority’s Headquarters at 200/201 Camp Street, South Cummingsburg, Georgetown, while actual examination of the goods will be done at the respective wharves/transit sheds in the presence of the stakeholders and the importer.

X-ray mix-up causes panic at GPH A young mother has accused the staff at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH) of endangering the life of her young son after she was given the wrong x-ray film by technicians attached to that institution. The woman said she had reason to take her child to see a doctor at the GPH after the child had suffered a fall from which she felt he could have been injured. After a brief search and query, it was discovered that another waiting adult patient had inadvertently been given the toddler’s X-ray film by the technicians, and was ironically busy trying to understand the strange miniature skeletal structure on that film. The medical staff at the hospital promptly swapped the X-rays, and everything was seemingly back to normal again.

Eleven homeless after Good Intent fire

FIRE destroyed a three-bedroom home at Goed Intent, West Bank Demerara yesterday, leaving a family of eleven homeless. Those devastated by the blaze were Mr. Inshab Ali, a fisherman; his wife Ramrattie, and their nine children, aged between 18 and three years. Mrs. Ali, who collapsed in the house on witnessing the flames, was saved by a neighbour who rushed into the blazing building and pulled her out in the nick of time. In wake of the blaze, residents in the area complained bitterly about the absence of a fire-fighting service in the area, saying that telephone calls to the West Demerara service went unanswered, and a fire tender which eventually reached the scene did so long after the flames had been extinguished. Carlotta Dodson, D.S.M (W142), who had been a member of the Guyana Police Force for more than 30 years, served with distinction, rising to the level of Assistant Commissioner of Police. She served as Deputy Chief Immigration Officer for a number of years, retiring on February 1, 2002.


Over 4000 animals removed from roadways in 2013 THE Home Affairs Ministry’s Stray Catching Unit has recorded reasonable success in 2013 in regard to keeping stray animals off the roadways, so much so that there were no reports of fatal accidents involving strays during the course of the year. For the period January 3 to December 31, 2013, the Unit caught and impounded 4,434 animals: 2,089 cows; 1,167 goats; 430 horses; three asses (donkeys), and 745 sheep.

Three charged with murder of Mahaicony farmer Deoroop Siewchand PREMNAUTH Seepersaud, 37, of Planters Hall, Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara; and Karran Ramhit, 23, and Doodnauth Siewchand, 47, both of Zeeland, Mahaicony, ECD, were charged with the murder of Deoroop Siewchand, committed on January 5, 2014. They appeared at the Mahaica Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Sueanna Lovell and were remanded to prison until February 5, 2014.

More public complaints surface about unsanctioned minibus fare hikes SEVERAL more commuters have complained about the arbitrary hikes in fares, this time imposed by minibus operators plying Route 44. It has been the second such outcry emanating from passengers within the last month, the first being against minibus operators on Route 32. Following the rise in Route 32 charges, the last word from Ali was that an advisory had been issued by the Commerce Ministry urging persons to report the unauthorised charges to either the police or the ministry. In December, Minister Ali had told the Guyana Chronicle that there was no way the Route 32 drivers could unilaterally decide to raise fares, adding that there had been no consultation with the minibus association on the matter. He had said that the ministry has a standing agreement with the Guyana Minibus Association which clearly states that, in the absence of higher gasoline prices, there cannot be a raise in fares. Unilateral fare hikes by minibus operators have been an on-and-off cause for concern among the travelling public in the last three years, and there have been some incidents resulting in minibus strike actions that had left hundreds of commuters stranded.

The story of Jose Matada By Hydar Ally

THERE is a story carried by the BBC of a young man, still in his twenties, who, in his bid to escape from poverty and seek a new life, stowed away on a flight from Angola, and was found dead in London. His dreams of a better life ended as the plane was about to touch down at a London airport, after he fell from the skies and was found dead in Portman Avenue, a suburban street in West London. He suffered multiple injuries to his head and face. According to the BBC report, it took several months later before his body was positively identified as Jose Matada. At the time of his death, he had no identity papers on him, and no one reported him missing. Police was unable to trace any relatives of his. It was only months later that his parents came forward and identified themselves to the authorities in Mozambique, the country of his birth. The story of Jose Matada, sad as it is, is by no means an isolated act. Every year, tens of thousands flee the land of their

Hydar Ally birth to look for greener pastures, only to find themselves in situations that they never anticipated, not even in their wildest dreams. The sad thing about it all is that the refugee problem is largely man-made and resulted mainly from wars and conflicts which forced millions of men, women and children to flee from the communities in which they were born and bred and spent their entire lives out of fear for their security. According to reports from humanitarian and aid organizations operating out of Africa, in the Central African Republic the number of internally displaced

Officials removing the body of Jose Matada (inset), from the blood-stained pavement in a swanky west London neighbourhood where it fell from a passenger plane’s undercarriage last September on its way to Heathrow ( photo) people have reached nearly a million due to violence. Most of the displaced are forced to go into hiding in bushes and makeshift homes. A similar situation has developed in South Sudan where thousands of people have fled their homes as a result of recent fighting between President Salva Kiir’s government and supporters of his political rival Riek Machar. South Sudan is Africa’s newest state after it ceded from Sudan. Over

one thousand have already been killed in the conflict that erupted between the government of South Sudan and rebels. An in Syria, the number of refugees in Lebanon and other neighbouring countries is running in the millions. The search for a better and secure life is a natural phenomenon for people all over the globe. We all want to enjoy the good life but not everyone is prepared to make the sacrifices to work hard and apply them-

selves in a manner that could lead to a better life. There are people who out of desperation are prepared to defy the odds to get to the so- called greener pastures. An untold number of people have become the victims of trafficking in persons and ended up as prostitutes and forced into all manner of unsavoury lifestyles not by choice but by circumstances over which they have little or no control. There are several persons

who ended up as prisoners in foreign lands having entered the country illegally and therefore condemned to a life of misery and insecurity. For many, the Hobbesian description of life being “short, nasty and poor” has been a permanent feature of their existence. This is why the importance of hard, dedicated and honest living regardless of the country of birth cannot be overemphasized. I have always held the view that it is immeasurably better to be a first class citizen in one own’s country than to be a second class citizen in another country, regardless of how rich that country may be. It all boils down in the end to our sense of values and pride in our nation and nationhood. Some people can do much better in life rather than to subject themselves to an undignified and unworthy life. As for me, there can be no place other than Guyana, the land of my birth. Yes, we have our problems and our challenges, but with all of that and more, it is still the best and most wonderful country in the world.

Supervolcanoes: Another thing to worry about and just like an asteroid strike, it threw massive amounts of dust and ash into the stratosphere, where it stayed for years, blocking out much of the sunlight. (It doesn’t rain in the stratosphere, so the debris stays there for a long time.) As a result, the average global temperature fell by as much as 10 degrees C for a number of years. It was temporary, but while it lasted, there was a steep fall in the amount of plant material growing on the planet, and a corresponding collapse in animal populations as well. Not mass extinctions, so far as we can tell, and fairly soon the plant and animal species repopulated their former habitats, but it certainly spoiled the party for the equivalent of several human generations. Homo sapiens was not around 640,000 years ago, but people like us certainly were around when another supervolcano, Toba, in northern Sumatra, blew about 73,000 years ago. The event has been tentatively linked with a “bottleneck” in human evolution at that time, in which, according to some genetic studies, the human population was squeezed down to only around 1,000 people. This hypothesis has been challenged by a recent study of the sediments in Lake Malawi by an Oxford University-led team. They did not find any layer in the sediments with much reduced vegetation, which you would expect to see if there were a long-lasting cooling of the climate. This is puzzling, since Toba was the biggest supervolcanic blast in 2.5 million years: it boosted two to three times as much dust and ash into the air as the Yellowstone eruption. But only a couple of years of severely diminished sunlight would still cause catastrophic population losses in both the plant and the animal kingdoms. Even a relatively short “volcanic winter” would be a huge catastrophe for human beings. How many people would die if such a catastrophe happened

now? It is unlikely that even half of the world’s 7 billion people would survive two or three years of severe hunger, and civilisation itself would take a terrible beating. Nor is there anything useful you can do to prepare for such a catastrophe, unless you are able to stockpile two or three years’ worth of food for the entire world. At the moment, our global food reserve will feed the population for only three or four months, so that is not likely to happen. If it does not, then we just have to hope that the calamity doesn’t happen – knowing that we probably will not have much warning if it does. What Dr Malfait’s team discovered is that the detonation of a supervolcano is entirely dependent on the temperature of the liquid rock in the underground chamber. As it gets hotter, it gets less dense than the solid rock around it. At this point, it will behave just like an air-filled balloon or football that is held underwater, trying to pop up to the surface. Eventually, the magma forces its way to the surface over an area of hundreds of square kilometres, expands and explodes. On average, such an explosion only happens once every hundred thousand years, but in practice it could happen at any time, with as little as a few weeks warning. Just thought you’d like to know. Sleep well. (Gwynne Dyer is a London-based independent journalist, and military historian.)


THE good thing about volcanoes is that you know where they are. If you don’t want to get hurt, just stay away from them. The bad thing about supervolcanoes is that you may know where they are, but there’s no getting away from them. They only blow up very rarely, but when they do, the whole world is affected. They can cover an entire continent with ash, and lower temperatures sharply worldwide for years. “This is something that, as a species, we will eventually have to deal with. It will happen in future,” said Dr Wim Malfait of ETH Zurich (the Swiss Federal institute of Technology), lead author of a recent paper in “Nature Geoscience” that says supervolcano eruptions don’t even need an earthquake as a trigger. “You could compare it to an asteroid impact,” he says. “The risk at any given time is small, but when it happens, the consequences will be catastrophic.” I know you already have enough to worry about, what with climate change and asteroid strikes and the like, but I’m afraid there’s more. Volcanoes and supervolcanoes both involve magma (molten rock deep underground) that breaks through to the surface, but, in practice, they are quite different. Volcanoes gradually build themselves into mountains by repeated, relatively modest eruptions of lava. Supervolcanoes are a single massive explosion of magma rising to the surface over a huge area, and blasting at least a thousand cubic km. of ash into the atmosphere. How massive? The largest recent volcanic eruption was Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, which blew about ten cubic km. of ash and gas into the upper atmosphere in 1991. The result was a 0.4 degree C drop in average global temperature for a year or so. But the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano 640,000 years ago was a hundred times as big. It covered the entire North American continent with ash;

Preparations underway for holding local government elections PREPARATIONS in respect to holding local government elections are underway, and a suitable time is actively being considered, but a direct date has not yet been finalized. Local Government and Regional Development Minister, Ganga Persaud, told a press conference Friday at the LGRD Ministry’s boardroom in Kingston, Georgetown that, at the level of the LGRD Ministry and the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), he is quite satisfied with the progress and preparations made thus far. He outlined that in enhancing community relationship, a good relationship with the clientele and stakeholders is vital at this point in time. He underscored the necessity to positively reach out to residents and communicate with them in an effective manner in regard to local government elections, noting that staffers of the LGRD Ministry have been trained and have familiarized themselves with the system, so they are more aware of the processes and dealings. Minister Persaud said that at a recently concluded retreat for the staff of the LGRD Ministry, the local government bills were examined and discussed in order to acquaint the staff with their details and contents. The minister also lauded the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) for the effort it has been placing on public awareness and promoting local government elections. He acknowledged the PPP’s assistance in regard to holding local government elections, saying that party has been playing a very significant part in the development and process of the elections. Additionally, Minister Persaud is urging the political parties involved in those elections to ensure that their developments are consistent in keeping with the law. He noted that it is important to work on this while making plans and preparations for the event, as persons are often carried away at certain times and the laws are consequently broken. When contacted, a senior GECOM official indicated that preparations are rapidly advancing to ensure proper holding of local government elections. He disclosed that the commission has not yet received a set date for the election to be held, as that is the decision of the LGRD Ministry and senior stakeholders and political parties. He said that GECOM does not deal with dates, but rather just the election preparation; and after preparations are completed, the date for holding the elections would be released by the relevant authorities.

LaRocque lauds opportunities Haiti brings to CARICOM - as Haitian CARICOM envoy is accredited By Vanessa Narine

CARIBBEAN Community (CARICOM) Secretary-General, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, maintains that Haiti undoubtedly enriches the cultural diversity of the CARICOM Community, and holds many “opportunities” for member states. His comments followed the accreditation of Haiti’s first plenipotentiary representative to the CARICOM Community, His Excellency Mr Peterson Benjamin Noel, who presented his credentials to Ambassador La Rocque on Friday at the CARICOM headquarters in Turkeyen, ECD. MUCH WORK LaRocque said Haiti’s membership with CARICOM has been highlighted through several efforts, particularly over the last year. “Since embracing membership in 2002, Haiti and the Community have worked together to ensure the smoothest possible integration of your country into CARICOM. To this end, the CARICOM Representation Office in Haiti had worked with your own Bureau de Suivi. “Numerous technical missions, workshops and engagements have been held; for example, to assist Haiti in preparing for its eventual accession to the Single Market regime. These efforts have been greatly facilitated by a number of international donors, in particular the Government of Canada as well as the Governments of Australia and Spain,” Ambassador LaRocque said. He added that the first time Haiti assumed the chairmanship of the Community was a period when the Community benefited from the “able leadership” of President Martelly. LaRocque said, “Most recently, President Martelly’s leadership brought the Community’s focus on the needs of the differently-abled, which resulted in the Declaration of Petionville, adopted by the High-Level Regional Meeting on Persons with Disabilities. “That Declaration now forms the platform on which the Community is advancing its efforts to address issues of concern to persons with disabilities.” La Rocque also said that the Government and people of Haiti have shown themselves to be resilient, creative, focused and determined. “These qualities have allowed Haiti to overcome many of the challenges that have threatened its aspirations. This is not surprising when one takes into account the proud history of Haiti and its epic and victorious struggle for independence against the odds, and to overthrow slavery. These qualities come into play once again in your country’s quest to achieve its highest aspirations,” he said. Ambassador LaRocque said the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) welcomes what Haiti brings to CARICOM. He referred to comments made by Haiti’s President, Michel Mar-

telly, who outlined Haiti as “a market of nearly ten million people, unsuspected natural assets, and a rich cultural heritage”. “Haiti undoubtedly enriches the cultural diversity of the Community. President Martelly rightly described Haiti as an opportunity, one yet to be fully discovered by our people,” LaRocque said. LaRocque reassured the newly accredited official of the Secretariat’s support going forward. He said, “Though your responsibilities and tasks are onerous, we are convinced that you are well equipped to handle them, and will bring new insight and energy to our own efforts at further integration. The Secretariat and your fellow CARICOM Ambassadors stand ready to work with you in those efforts.” COMMITTED Ambassador Noel stressed the importance the Government of Haiti assigns its participation in CARICOM, and made clear that

the country is committed to improving that participation. He said, “I want to emphasize the importance that the Government of Haiti bestows on its participation in the regional integration movement….” Ambassador Noel said Haiti should be seen and treated as an opportunity. “Despite its difficulties, it represents a good opportunity for the region, an opportunity for each CARICOM country,” Noel said. He made it clear that a Haitian economy that works would best serve the interests of CARICOM, and would help expand the regional market and opportunities. Noel said, “I want to take this opportunity to advocate for my country and to encourage people from the region to take full advantage of the Republic of Haiti’s accession into the Community. “Allow me to reassure you that all efforts are being made to fully integrate the CARICOM Single Market and Economy and to diversify our trading partners.” Noel underscored the importance of fully integrating French as one of the official languages of the Community, along with English. “The achievement of this goal will benefit the people of the region,” Noel stressed. He also expressed his appreciation for the statement of support uttered by the Secretary General, and reiterated that Haiti is making all efforts at greater integration with the Caribbean Community. Noel said, “As the ‘change driver’ of Haiti, I would like to commend you for your emphasis on the reform process within the Community. Yesterday I had the opportunity to express the commitment of Haiti to the Community. We support the finalization of the New Strategic Plan for CARICOM, which will drive the whole integration process over the next five years.”

Carib Soca Monarch quest...

Police remove ‘Lil Red’ ‘rearing to rock’ toddler from drunken the stage this year grandfather’s care

BUZZ of the 2014 Carib Soca Monarch has electrified the air, and a young and very vibrant Jonathan ‘Lil Red’ King has plaintively declared himself ‘rearing to rock’ the stage in his pursuit of the prestigious Carib Soca Monarch crown, and that he is here to win this time around. Folks at the ANSA McAL camp are presently reviewing entries submitted for this year’s competition, and young King is confident he would be amongst those shortlisted for the finals. This year’s event will see at least twelve artistes competing at the final leg for $1.5M in cash prizes. This publication has received word that over thirty entries were received this year, and that the semi-finalists will be declared at a small function on Monday at the ANSA McAL Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara head office. Those shortlisted will move forward to the semi-final segment, slated for Saturday, February 08, at the Albion Community Centre Ground in Region Six. ‘Lil Red’ noted in an exclusive interview with this publication that this year he is more prepared for the competition, is confident of his chances of winning, and has composed the correct song to give him the Jonathan ‘Lil Red’ King advantage over the competition. With his entry this year dubbed ‘Who we Are’, ‘Lil Red’ hopes to dethrone the more seasoned campaigners, since he has ‘done his groundwork’ with every intention of demolishing the competition. Last year the young singer entered the competition with ‘I will never Stop’, but appeared a bit nervous during his presentation. In 2012, he entered with the pulsating song ‘Hold me Tight’, which instantly became a hit single amongst teenagers and even older folks. This singer is presently ‘under the wings’ of the Vizion Sound Recording Studio, alongside his mother Michelle ‘Big Red’ King, who is also a member of that music fraternity.

- but run into flack over protocol

By Vanessa Narine RESPONDING to calls from certain residents at Providence, East Bank Demerara, police have removed a twoyear-old boy from the custody of his imbibing grandfather, who was inebriated at the time of their visit to his home. A police constable involved in the child’s removal called this newspaper to ask “Which place is open” to take the child. The constable told the Guyana Chronicle that the grandfather is reportedly drunk on a regular basis, and is unable to properly care for the child. He informed that the child’s father is currently incarcerated, and the mother is “hardly ever” at home. This newspaper called the Providence Police Station at 12:45pm, and the responding office, who asked not to be named, confirmed that the child had indeed been removed from the home, and was still at the police station. The incident, particularly as it relates to police ignorance over procedures, sparked in stakeholder circles major concerns in relation to the person or agency that should be responsible for a child who has been removed by some competent authority after that child has been removed, and the level of collaboration considered acceptable among stakeholder

agencies in regard to that child’s welfare. OUTRAGE Head of the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA), Ms Ann Greene, expressed outrage at the circumstances surrounding the removal of the twoyear-old from his grandfather’s custody. In an invited comment, she said, “The police are aware of what they have to do in this situation. They have the Agency’s hotline number, and

ANN GREENE can also contact me personally! All stations MUST know -- and follow -- the procedures! “If it is that they are saying they do not know that the Child Care and Protection Agency has to be contacted when a child is removed from any environment,

then it is a matter that has to be taken to the (police) Commissioner.” Greene said the Child Care and Protection Act is clear on the procedures regarding such an incident. She added that while some police stations make contact with the agency, other still do not. “At the end of the day, we are the ones responsible for providing alternative care for the child in question,” Greene stressed. Greene said the issue is not that the police should not, or could not, remove the child; rather, the problem is that contact has first to be made with the CCPA, in the interest of the child’s safety and welfare. She said awareness campaigns have been undertaken by the CCPA to ensure that police ranks are fully aware of what they have to do in circumstances similar to this one. “They (police) have to stick to procedures!” Greene stressed, referring to possible ensuing difficulties that would arise if the child’s welfare were in any way threatened and procedures had not been followed. She called for a greater level of collaboration between the GPF and the CCPA, to protect the welfare of all children. “We cannot say the system does not work if we are not following the rules,” she declared. The CCPA hotline number is 227-0979.

GPL renews call for support against electricity theft

GUYANA Power and Light (GPL) has renewed its call for public support against electricity theft, in the wake of electrocution of an eight-year- old boy. In wake of the tragedy, on Thursday, the utility said the electrocuting of Joshua Regis, of Enterprise Primary School, on East Coast Demerara, was caused by illegal ‘live’ electrical wires channeled through a waterway. That has, once more, highlighted the danger to life and limb that this practice poses, the power company said, in extending its condolences to the family of the deceased. GPL lamented the fact of increasing occurrence of electricity theft and urged members of the public to act responsibly in reporting any instance of this illegal activity. IN COLLUSION The prevalence of illegal connections, often done in collusion with persons purporting to be GPL staff, is the single biggest problem faced by the utility, both in terms of revenue lost, overloading the power lines and the possible loss of lives and damage to property. Reports on electricity theft can be made to HOTLINE 592-225-5251 and, for more details on how to easily access legal power supply, telephone calls can be made to 592-226-2606 or visit the GPL website on the internet. Meanwhile, GPL made a monetary donation to the Guyana Karate College as part of its commitment to assist with national development and contributed a $100,000 cheque to the next generation on Wednesday. The presentation was made at GPL’s Executive Secretariat, Lot 91 Duke Street, Kingston, Georgetown. The Karate College provides administrative, educational, and technical expertise in traditional karate-do of the highest standards and GPL is pleased to thrust its support towards the institution for 2014.

Prosecution in stepfather murder conspiracy closes case …defence makes no-case submissions By George Barclay PROSECUTING Counsel in the stepfather murder conspiracy, Mrs. Judith Gildharry-Mursalin, closed her case Friday after the testimony of 12 witnesses. Defence counsel Mr. Glenn Hanoman, who is appearing for accused Bissoondial Mahadeo, one of the four persons accused of the murder of Motilall Singh, immediately intimated to Judge Navindra Singh that he would be relying on no-case submissions in the absence of the jury. Senior Counsel Mr. Bernard De Santos is appearing for the other accused, Shamiza Khan, called ‘Sham’, Hoosman Khan, called ‘Strong Man’, and Bibi Farida Khan, called ‘Pum’, all of Windsor Forest, West Coast, Demerara. They are all on trial for the murder of Motilall Singh, whose body, with stab wounds, was found near to a small bridge at Second Street, Windsor Forest on September 7, 2009. A post mortem by Government Forensic Specialist Dr. Nehaul Singh revealed that he had been stabbed 21 times. Up to late yesterday the Judge was still listening to no-case submissions in the absence of the jury. During the substantive trial, caution statements, which amounted to confessions, were admitted by the judge, following voir dires in which it was alleged that the accused had conspired to kill Singh after it was learnt that the American-based Guyanese, who had come home to attend his brother’s funeral, had planned to divorce his wife and sell his local property with relatives inside. Evidence was led to show that money was sent from overseas to pay the accused to effect the murder. The trial is expected to end by tomorrow since Tuesday is a holiday, and the January Session begins on Wednesday.

The Assistant Public Relations and Communications Officer, Wadecia Donald hands over the cheque valued at $100,000 to Winston Prince, representative of the Guyana Karate College.

SIXTY-two-year-old Balram Ramkhalawan of Belvedere Village, Corentyne, Berbice was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment after he confessed to assaulting his Octogenarian mother, Rogina Ramkhalawan, at their home on December 12 last.

Human Services Ministry helps Long Creek residents develop their community

THE Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security on Friday made a donation to support efforts by residents of Long Creek to develop their community. The residents formed a Parent Support Group, under the School Retention programme, to do their bit in ensuring all school-aged children in the community attend school regularly. To generate fundging and support families with children, most of whom are single-parent families, the group began a breakfast shed, where they prepare meals and snacks for sale. They also host other fundraising initiatives, the proceeds of which are reinvested into the community. To date, they have built a bus shed. In an attempt to support the breakfast shed venture, Minister of Human Services Ms. Jennifer Webster presented

the group with items that would be used in the kitchen; items such as utensils, pots and other household appliances, which were all handed over to the Chairperson of the Group, Ms. Gwendoline DeJesus. The Ministry has also undertaken to purchase stoves and a freezer for the group, as well as make efforts to ensure they have a suitable kitchen to conduct their operation. Making the presentation at the Long Creek Primary School, Minister Webster noted that the Ministry is happy to support the initiative and would continue to work with the group to ensure sustainability and possible expansion. Ms. DeJesus in turn expressed the community’s appreciation and committed their dedication to making the venture a success.


Schoolgirl heart patient returns from overseas Surgery - thanks Digicel for sponsorship HEART patient, Terriann Wright, a schoolgirl who had successful surgery in the United States following sponsorship by Digicel Guyana, paid a courtesy call on the company’s Head of Marketing, Jacqueline James, to express appreciation of the lifesaving gesture by the giant cell phone company. Terriann, accompanied by her mother Gillian Henry, was eager to meet with James to tell her how well she was doing in school and to request her phone number. Terriann told the Digicel executive that her favourite subject is spelling. Her mom noted that she is doing quite well at school and loves to run around, but she also knows when to take it easy. Terriann was delighted to also receive a bag of goodies from James. Digicel provided the airfare for Terriann and her mother to Memphis, Tennessee, USA on January 15, 2013 for her to undergo open heart surgery for atrial septal defect (ASD), commonly known as ‘Hole-in-the-heart’. “Digicel is extremely proud of Terriann’s progress, and feels very privileged to be a part of her life,” James said.

Search begins for ‘Guyana’s - $1M in cash, Next Top Model’ prizes up for grabs By Alex Wayne

PRIVATE individuals have launched their version of the ‘Guyana Next Top Model’ initiative, geared at soliciting and developing excellent runway and fashion talent on the local shores. Proceedings were attended by a grand ceremony at the lavish Millennium Manor Hotel on Hadfield Street, Georgetown last Thursday. Speaking to this publication following the launch, businesswomen Yonette Bacchus and June-Ann Ross noted that the venture is also being staged to motivate young minds and discover new talent in the world of glitz and glamour. They said the initiative, which will be staged as a reality show, will run over an extended period before the final male and female top models are eventually decided; and the winners will share over

$1M in prizes, including cash. The winners will also each gain a one-year contact with the Millennium Manor Hotel that will see them becoming spokespersons for the entity and engaging in commercial and glamour opportunities. Culmination of this event will, of course, see several elimination rounds before the final male and female top models are decided. To arrive at the final short listing of models last Tuesday, auditions were staged over the foregoing months in Berbice, Linden and Georgetown. The organisers have indicated that auditions will close next week, and that next year they will focus on areas like Bartica and Essequibo. Male and female models interested in competing in this initiative were required to be at least five feet seven inches in height, and were expected to possess the remarkable qualities of beauty and brains.

Elysium to explore sensuality this Mashramani WITH Christmas gone, all attention is now focused on Mashramani 2014. And believe it or not, plans are already underway to host, for Mash 2014, one of the biggest mass tramps ever in Guyana. In 2013, some 38 bands participated in Mash; but this year, a number of new entities have already indicated their readiness to participate in the road tramp. Elysium – the Garden of Fantasy, recently launched its 2014 Mashramani costumes at the Monaco Night Club. Elysium will be on the road with five sensual figures of one’s desires: Lust, betrayal, seduction, serenity and temptation. And it is certain that people will be left mesmerized as they explore the mysteries of the mythical garden.

Bible Fellowship Church donates gifts of love to St. John Bosco Orphanage By Alex Wayne MEMBERS of the Bible Fellowship Church in Kitty, Georgetown have donated a quantity of toys, toothpaste, laundry detergent and other items to the very receptive occupants of the St. John’s Bosco Orphanage in Plaisance, East Coast Demerara. The donation, made on Saturday last, was aimed at enhancing the operation and functioning of the orphanage; and the gesture, initiated by the church’s District Mission President, Ms Anita Singh, was well received by folks at the orphanage.

Speaking on behalf of the church, Ms. Singh said the initiative was made possible with contributions from the Rose of Sharon Children’s Ministry of Pennsylvania, USA; the Bible Liberty Church of the USA; a few local religious outreach entities; and several individuals here in Guyana. She added that, as District Mission President of the Bible Fellowship Church, her duties entail assisting the less fortunate in society; raising funds for church building projects; helping people in the hinterland regions; and putting a smile on many faces in need.

Ms Singh added that her church has also donated towards the tragedy in Haiti, among many other projects. In 2001, Ms. Singh launched a feeding programme that entailed cooking and serving the Kitty, Georgetown community and whoever else was apparently in need of a meal. Occasionally, she bestows the same gesture on folks at the Uncle Eddie’s Home, and also donates to the Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre. Ms Singh said her efforts to reach out to the needy could not have been possible without the help of kind and considerate individuals and entities, both locally and in the wide diaspora.

Wowing passersby with his juggling skills

Argentinean about to complete Guyana leg of cross-continent adventure By Vanessa Narine FOR most of us, our jobs and families and other commitments prevent us from undertaking any major travelling expeditions; but for Pablo Carlos Martin Bossio, travelling is not only about the adventure of being in a strange place, it’s a lifestyle choice to “go the distance” on a path he has been travelling for the better part of the last year. Many Guyanese have probably seen this stranger, who clearly stands out as a stranger: ‘a white man’ with blonde hair and tights, who takes advantage of the 90-second wait on the red light at the corner of Vlissingen Road and Croal Street to show off his juggling skills; and many passing drivers reward him for the show, which assists him in financing his cross-continent adventures. A most interesting feature of his endeavour is probably his companion, a little dog he lovingly calls ‘Lola’. In a chat with the Guyana Chronicle, the Argentine national explained that, since leaving Buenos Aires, he has been to Bolivia, Brazil and Guyana. “I have been in Guyana for three weeks now,” he said. His next destination, he said, is Suriname; which he hopes to visit in another week or so. “When I am done with that, I am headed to French Guiana, Venezuela, and then fly to Mexico and Guatemala, the countries in that stretch,” he said. Asked about the highlight of the Guyana leg of his journey, he explained that the rich culture “amazed” him. In his thick Spanish accent, the traveller said: “Guyana is very different. The people are different and good, and the culture is different. I really like it.” However, amidst the praises for Guyana, he dubbed the only bad thing he has seen as the garbage challenge the capital city is facing. “Some parts are really nice, but others are not,” he said, gesturing to his immediate surroundings – a favourite spot for him to perform. Pablo declared that his feat is “nowhere near” the fantastic undertakings of persons who have gained fame by travelling the world solo on a motorcycle, or kayak solo for a lengthy distance. However, he noted that his experiences have been both bad and good, the latter evidenced, for example, in the renowned Guyanese hospitality, which served to restore his lost faith in humanity. Happy traveller Pablo Carlos Martin Bossio

Hazard and Torres fire Chelsea top, United stop rot By Martyn Herman LONDON – (Reuters) - Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres applied the gloss to a workmanlike 2-0 victory at Hull City that lifted Chelsea ominously to the top of the Premier League yesterday. In true Jose Mourinho style, the Londoners first nullified the minimal threat posed by Hull, then cut through at will after the break when classy goals by Hazard and Torres earned the Blues a fourth consecutive league victory. Mourinho’s in-form side have 46 points, one more than second-placed Arsenal who visit Aston Villa on Monday and two ahead of Manchester City who travel to Newcastle United today. “Do we like to be leaders? Yes, we like, but maybe tomorrow we are second and maybe Monday we are third,” manager Mourinho told reporters. “The important thing is we all know we are going in the right direction.” Champions Manchester United remained in seventh place, nine points behind Chelsea, but at least got back to winning ways with a 2-0 home defeat of Swansea City that put a smile back on the face of manager David Moyes after three consecutive defeats. Everton rose to fourth with 41 points courtesy of a 2-0 home win over Norwich City and Tottenham Hotspur have 40 in fifth after beating Crystal Palace 2-0. With Sunderland winning 4-1 at Fulham and West Ham United sinking Cardiff City 2-0, Palace now prop up the table although only six points separate them from 10th-placed Hull. New West Bromwich Albion manager Pepe Mel watched his new club lose 1-0 at mid-table Southampton. It was about as stress-free a Saturday lunchtime as Chelsea could have wished for at Hull. They easily coped with the home side’s lacklustre attacks and when they attacked Hazard provided the spark. The Belgian fired a low shot home following a jinking burst in the 56th minute and Spain striker Torres marked his 200th Premier League appearance with a clinical late strike. Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech also set a club record of 209 clean sheets, 150 of them in the league. The Czech international was barely troubled as he edged in front of Stamford Bridge great Peter Bonetti, his only save of note coming from Jake Livermore’s swerving effort before halftime. CLEAN SHEETS Without scaling the heights Chelsea are beginning to hit top gear at just the right time, churning out wins and clean sheets just as they did in Mourinho’s first stint in charge. “Today we had the extra pressure of not losing the chance to be top even for a few hours,” the manager said. “I feel the team is improving step by step, all the players are stable and the young players are improving. You can feel the evolution in the team. “We could do better because we lost some points that we shouldn’t have but it could also be worse. Not a five out of 10, not a, seven-and-a-half, eight, around there,” Mourinho added when summing up their season. After a dull start Hazard carved out Chelsea’s first chance on the half hour, teeing up Oscar with a neat pull back but the Brazilian’s point-blank shot was brilliantly turned over the crossbar by Allan McGregor. McGregor also had to be on his toes to deal with a dipping shot from David Luiz before halftime as the visitors gradually asserted their superiority. Hazard broke through, rifling a shot past McGregor after skipping away from Hull’s defence. One goal looked like being enough for the Londoners but Torres made sure of the points after 87 minutes when he raced clear to beat McGregor. With strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie missing, Manchester United laboured against Swansea in the first half at Old Trafford and there were grumbles among the home fans. Antonio Valencia lifted the mood when he tapped the ball in after 47 minutes and then Danny Welbeck flicked in United’s second goal to clinch the win. Gareth Barry’s 50th league goal helped Everton to victory over Norwich at Goodison Park before Kevin Mirallas made it 2-0 with a free kick. England striker Jermain Defoe reminded Tottenham fans what they will be missing when he joins Toronto on February 28, scoring the second goal against Palace after coming off the bench to replace Roberto Soldado. Palace wasted the chance to go ahead in the first half when Jason Puncheon sliced a penalty high and wide. After conceding 11 goals without scoring in two crushing cup defeats and falling into the bottom three, West Ham produced a gutsy display to win at Cardiff despite having James Tomkins sent off and fellow defender Guy Demel taken to hospital. Carlton Cole gave the Hammers the lead and Mark Noble scored in stoppage time after being set up by fit-again England striker Andy

my professional expertise, can take the sport of basketball to the next level”. The former national Hockey player spent a considerable amount of time living overseas but upon returning to Guyana permanently, he noted that he was in “awe” as it relates to the state of the sport of basketball in Guyana. “We’re way behind the rest of the countries in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC). I know David (Patterson) tried his best but he encountered several challenges beyond his control. However, that’s still not an excuse for the state of the game. I believe collectively we can turn things around,” Hinds pointed out. The Certified Public Accountant, Hinds, further noted “I plan to engage all stakeholders especially the Ministry of Sport and National Sports Commission (NSC) and what they have to do with the use of the Sports Hall. “That Sports Hall was built for basketball but now basketball is least played there and pays the highest rental fees. I also intend to look how we can make Youth basketball Guyana (YBG) apart of the GABF and have them regulated in accordance to FIBA.” (Rawle Toney).

Murray could face Federer in quarterfinals at Australian Open

(REUTERS) - Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has been given no favours, as he battles back from a back injury that put paid to the latter half of his 2013 season, drawn in the same quarter as 17-time grand slam champion Roger Federer. The Briton will play 112th-ranked Japanese Go Soeda in the first round but big-serving American John Isner, seeded 13th, shapes as fourth round clash ahead of a quarter-final blockbuster with former world number one Federer. Coming off his most disappointing season in years, Swiss Federer faces Australian wildcard James Duckworth first with 10th seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga a likely tough fourthround encounter. World number one Rafael Nadal will battle the bad boy of Australian tennis Bernard Tomic and a partisan crowd in the first round at Melbourne Park as he bids for a 14th grand slam title. The Spaniard dumped a teenaged Tomic from the 2011 tournament but will be wary of the former Wimbledon quarter-finalist who raises his game in front of home fans and has returned to form by making the semi-finals in this week’s Sydney International warm-up. “I think it’s safe to say that’s a night match,” six-time grand slam champion Boris Becker, now coaching men’s Andy Murray title-holder Novak Djokovic, said at the draw ceremony at Melbourne Park Friday. “Obviously it’s (one of) the toughest first rounds ... (Tomic’s) playing well in Australia.” The local hope’s horror draw with Nadal drew groans and rueful laughs from Australian media and fans, with ashen-faced tournament director Craig Tiley saying he thought he was going to “fall through a hole” in his chair. However, Nadal’s run to the quarter-finals is also littered with landmines, a potential third-round match against 25th seeded Frenchman Gael Monfils followed by a likely round four meeting with 16th seed Kei Nishikori of Japan among them. Fifth seed and 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, the only player to break the ‘Big Four’s’ stranglehold over the grand slams in recent years, looms as a quarter-final opponent. Second seed Djokovic has been drawn in the much kinder lower half of the draw and will face Slovakia’s 90th-ranked Lukas Lacko first up. Djokovic’s first major test is likely to be in the quarter-finals with the much-improved eighth seed Stanislas Wawrinka, who pushed him in a five-set marathon in last year’s tournament The women’s draw elicited further groans for local fans, with world number one Serena Williams drawing rising Australian talent Ashleigh Barty in the first round as the American bids for her 18th grand slam title and sixth at Melbourne Park. Williams’ draw lines her up for a potentially challenging fourth-round clash with Australia’s Sam Stosur, who beat her in the final of the U.S. Open in 2011. Double defending champion Victoria Azarenka, seeded second, will take on Swede Johanna Larsson with the prospect of a fourth round match against rising American Sloane Stephens, seeded 13th. Third seed Maria Sharapova kicks off her bid for a fifth grand slam title against colourful American Bethanie Mattek-Sands. The Russian enjoys a relatively smooth run to the quarter-finals where eighth seed and former world number one Jelena Jankovic may wait. Fourth seed Li Na, runner-up at Melbourne Park last year, will play a qualifier ahead of a possible quarter-final clash with former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova.

Misbah misses ton as Pakistan tail frustrates Sri Lanka

Out of the blue, Misbah’s vigil came to an end when he was bowled by Rangana Herath for 97 before tea. Pakistan had the lead by then. slim hopes of salvaging the second Test against Sri Lanka after a stirring rearguard action in Dubai yesterday. Pakistan resumed the fourth day’s play trailing Sri Lanka by 91 runs with seven second-innings wickets in hand but Misbah’s dour 97 and wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed’s defiant unbeaten 70 powered them to 330 for seven when heavy drizzle forced an early close. Ahmed and Saeed Ajmal (seven), whose bowling on the final day could prove crucial, will return today hoping to stretch the team’s 107-run lead and hope for rain on a day with a cloudy forecast. Resuming on 132 for three, the responsibility for erasing the deficit was on two of Pakistan’s senior batsmen, Misbah and Younus Khan. The duo adopted contrasting approaches with Younus’s fluency complimented by Misbah’s dogged-

the day. Younus, who stood well outside the crease to negate any swing, hit Suranga Lakmal through extra cover for the first boundary of the day but runs were not easy to come by. The former Pakistan captain was lured in by the width of a Lakmal delivery and miscued a cut shot to give Prasanna Jayawardene his fourth catch of the innings. Younus, who made a fluent 77 off 173 balls with five boundaries, added 129 for the fourth wicket with Misbah who looked unperturbed by the slow run rate. Misbah added 52 more runs with Asad Shafiq (23) who fell to Shaminda Eranga with the new ball. The 39-year-old righthander occasionally broke the shackles, hitting Rangana Herath’s first ball of the day to the midwicket boundary but the stocky left-arm spin-

It took a nearly unplayable delivery to end Misbah’s painstaking 248-ball vigil, which included eight fours and a six, before the tea break.

Humbled England ‘can still win World Cup’ MICHAEL Clarke believes England will be one of the major contenders to win next year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Clarke has spent the majority of the winter undermining Alastair Cook’s side during the 5-0 Ashes defeat, but he believes his opposite number could yet enjoy far more happier times in the Antipodes. Despite the chaos that has enveloped England, Clarke believes they have a 50-over side to be feared ahead of their series opener in Melbourne today. The 32-year-old expects they will show that over the course of the next five games - at venues that will host the World Cup in just over a year - and has warned his side that their own credentials will be significantly tested. “England has got a very good one-day line-up,” he said. “They’ve got some really destructive batters and plenty of pace and bounce with their bowling as well. “This is an important series because we will be playing in the same facilities that we will play the World Cup in, the same pitches, and against an opposition that is going to play a huge role. “I think England is going to be extremely tough to beat in the World Cup. “This is going to be great preparation. We will have to be at our best.” Australia sit second in the International Cricket Council’s one-day rankings and just marginally above England. Both teams could finish the series as the world’s topranked 50-over team - albeit they would need the right set of results in this series as well

as in India’s concurrent five ODIs in New Zealand. There was little between Australia and England in the ODI series in the summer, which Clarke’s side won 2-1 to kick-start their revival. That result continued a trend that has seen the team that has won the past four

Australia captain Michael Clarke thinks England could win the World Cup next year. Ashes then lose the one-day series. Clarke is wary of that fate befalling his side and warned they can ill afford complacency. “For the guys who do play Test cricket, it’s quite easy to take your foot off the pedal,” he said. “I said before the last two Test matches that we as a Test team had a lot to play for because we were ranked fifth at the time and we want to get back to number one. “I say the same about this one-day unit. We know we are not the number one team in the world at this stage. That is our goal. “If you want to be a part of this team, you cannot afford to take your foot off the pedal. “I think it’s really important we continue to play good, positive cricket.”

Clarke named his starting XI for today’s match at the MCG a day early with James Pattinson and Shaun Marsh the players to miss out, while Mitchell Johnson is being rested after his Ashes exertions. That means David Warner will make a return to the ODI set-up for the first time since his controversial Champions Trophy last June. Warner aimed a punch at Joe Root in a Birmingham bar after Australia’s group-stage defeat - an incident which prompted him to lose his place in all formats before a return to form this winter. Clarke confirmed Warner would open the batting alongside Aaron Finch with Shane Watson - who hit a match-winning unbeaten 161 when these sides last met at the MCG in 2011 - at three. “It’s just what we feel is the best XI for this first game,” Clarke said. “I think the wicket looks really good, we think it’s going to be a little bit two paced. We think this is the best team for this first match.” Clarke revealed he had no plans to rest during the series, although that is a decision that could be made over his head. The right-hander’s chronic back problem twice flared last year - resulting in him missing the Champions Trophy and the ODI tour of India. “I feel good at the moment. That will be decided by the people well and truly above me,” he said. “If they think I should miss a game then I’ll have that conversation with (coach) Darren Lehmann and the selectors. “But right now I’m really keen to help this team win this one-day series.

Farrell rattles England Women top order

ENGLAND Women were rocking after a dismal start to their second innings in the Ashes Test at the WACA. After bowling Australia out for 207, a six-run lead for the hosts, England were quickly reduced to 18 for three before the close to put the pressure on overnight. Rene Farrell, England’s

nemesis in the first innings, was at it again, removing opener Heather Knight for just one in the second over of the innings and then - after Ellyse Perry had Lydia Greenway trapped lbw for five - accounting for Sarah Taylor, who went for a duck. Adding to England’s worries was the absence of opener

Sarfraz Ahmed not out 70 Bilawal Bhatti b Eranga 32 Saeed Ajmal not out 7 Extras (b-1, lb-7) 8 Total (7 wickets; 123.3 overs) 330 Still to bat: Rahat Ali, Junaid Khan Fall of wickets: 1-11 2-12 3-19 4-148 5-200 6-245 7-312 Bowling (to date): Lakmal 223-62-1, Pradeep 19-3-50-2, Herath 43.3-8-124-2, Eranga 33-9-70-2, Mathews 5-1-9-0, Sangakkara 1-0-7-0. Australia are well on top after day two

and captain Charlotte Edwards, who hurt her knee while fielding during the second session and was not seen again for the rest of the day. As she spent so long off the field, she cannot bat until at least five wickets are down. But if anything could give England hope, it will be the manner in which Australia recovered after getting themselves into similar difficulties during their first innings. The hosts resumed in the morning on nine for two and the score had gone no further than 22 when Kate Cross kicked off her Test career by bowling a wicket maiden, clean-bowling Australia’s danger player Jess Cameron for five. A u s t r a l i a ’s s t r u g g l e s continued when Cross then trapped Alex Blackwell lbw moments later and they were on 37 for five when Katherine Brunt got rid of Sarah Elliott for 13. But, having put them on

the back-foot, England looked guilty of easing off as Jodie Fields and Perry built a 50-partnership to see them through to lunch at 89 for five. England’s frustrations grew as Brunt was no-balled for the second time for a headhigh full toss in her first over after the interval, meaning she could not bowl again for the rest of the innings. A brilliant diving catch from Jenny Gunn lifted the gloom as Fields went for 43, a third wicket for Cross. However, Erin Osborne soon built another partnership with Perry, who reached her first Test 50 as the score moved to 148 for six. Their partnership was worth 85 by the time Perry went for 71, bowled by Gunn. The new ball then did for Osborne, as Anya Shrubsole trapped her lbw for 40 before England cleaned up the tail.

‘Now we know we’ve got players who can do well anywhere’ - Dhoni

By Abhishek Purohit

MS Dhoni believes that India’s young side has transitioned into a stable unit with the help of sustained exposure at home ahead of a number of overseas trips. According to Dhoni, the first one, to South Africa, proved that the team had players who could perform in all conditions. As they depart for the second trip, to New Zealand, the India captain said that tackling bounce and generating it were the major challenges facing the batsmen and bowlers respectively. “The good thing is that though there have been quite a few changes [to the team], before we went for the last tour we got enough time in India,” Dhoni said at a press conference in Mumbai, ahead of the team’s departure for New Zealand. “Quite a few of them played few Test matches in India and we did well and were confident of their ability. Quite a few people were speculating about how the batsmen will do or how the bowlers will do [in South Africa]. Now we know we have got a set of players who will do well irrespective of where we are playing and that is a big positive. “As of now, both our [ODI

and Test] squads look quite settled, which is a good thing because it’s very important to back individuals. If you talk about the batsmen, not all of them have played a lot of Test matches outside the subcontinent. So they will take some time. “But what we have seen is that almost all of them have played ODIs outside India and still they have performed really well, which gives you the confidence of saying that they have the ability to do well outside the subcontinent when it comes to dealing with pace and bounce. Yes, the red ball does slightly more and for slightly longer periods in Test matches and it’s different, but if you have the talent to perform in one format, definitely you have the talent to perform in others too.” For India batsmen who are used to unpredictable and low carry at home, leaving balls on the bounce alone in New Zealand is likely to be a challenge. But Dhoni said that his batsmen had shown in South Africa that they could tackle that test quite well. “We have a slightly bigger challenge in the sense that ... [even] if the fast bowlers bowl back of a length in India more often than not it is very difficult to leave on the bounce, but when you go outside you know you have the liberty of not only

leaving on the line, but also if you judge the bounce and if the wicket has good bounce, you can leave on the bounce. “This is something you learn over a period of time and I think the batsmen did well in South Africa, they handled good fast bowling and at the same time they were quite positive. There were quite a few things that happened in South Africa that gives us the confidence of saying that we have the talent of doing well anywhere in the world.” Dhoni also said there was healthy competition among his bowlers, with more and more recovering from injuries, and that the challenge for his attack was to squeeze more bite out of drier pitches. “I think there’s more competition when it comes to the bowling department. One year back some of our leading fast bowlers had injuries. Back then we didn’t have too many options,” he said. “But now with all of them becoming fit and being available for selection and doing well on the domestic circuit, they have enough competition amongst themselves, which is a healthy thing to have.” “There’s one particular condition we have to improve on, which is on wickets that are on the drier side and just have a bit of bounce on offer and not too much of seam

Taylor included in Jamaica’s 14-man Super50 squad

FORMER West Indies pacer Jerome Taylor has been included in Jamaica’s 14-man squad, for the Super50 over tournament, named by chairman of the selection committee Wavell Hinds Friday at Sabina Park. The tournament will be staged in Trinidad & Tobago starting on January 30. The squad will be led by captain Chris Gayle and it represents no surprises, mainly consisting of senior players with only one young player being included, John Campbell. Prior to the squad being named, the final trial match saw Cassius Burton putting on an all-round performance which piloted Yannick Elliot’s XI to what would have been an easy victory over John Campbell’s XI. Elliot’s XI batting first made a steady 211 all out from 49.5 overs, which saw Burton leading the way with a well played 58, backed by Brenton Parchment, who contributed a patient 36 from 84 balls. Former captain Tamar Lambert chipped in with 37 from 54 balls. Nicholas Gordon led the bowling with four for 45 from his eight overs, while Sheldon Cotterell carried the swing for John Jerome Taylor Campbell’s XI taking three for 42 from his 10 overs. With the sun out in all its glory and the wind blowing cool across the ground, Campbell’s XI started their run chase with a well put together 87-run opening partnership by the skipper himself who led with 43 runs and John Ross Campbell (42) before they fell in quick succession. Carlton Baugh Jr offered some assistance making 25, but Campbell’s XI only mustered 149-8 from 40.2 overs. Burton led with two for 15 from 2.2 overs and also executed a beautiful run out, while Christopher Lamont also bagged two for 18 from his 10 overs. Damian Jacobs was the last man out before the players were called to a team meeting by Hinds. Full squad: Chris Gayle (captain), David Bernard Jr (vice-captain), Andre Russell, Carlton Baugh Jr, Tamar Lambert, Andre Richardson, Horace Miller, John Campbell, Jermaine Blackwood, Andre McCarty, Sheldon Cotterell, Jerome Taylor, Nikita Miller, Nkrumah Bonner. Reserves: Danza Hyatt, Kennar Lewis, Donovan Nelson and Jamie Merchant. (Jamaica Observer).

movement. The reason being, most of our bowlers aren’t those who hit the surface. Most of them are those who swing the ball and bowl slightly up to the batsman. At times we encounter wickets that are on the drier side and you have to bang in the ball to get bounce and pace.” In the absence of a seam-bowling allrounder, Dhoni also called for India’s specialist spinners to show more patience and build pressure in overseas Tests, pointing to Ravindra Jadeja’s performance in the Durban Test as an example. “One thing that the home team would like to do is to ensure that the wickets don’t turn at all. The reason being that we don’t have an allrounder. We don’t play with five specialist bowlers. Over the years we have lost our part-timers who were as good as specialist bowlers. “If the ball doesn’t spin they [the opposition] can take runs off the spinner, rotate the strike and look to score over three runs an over, and that actually puts the pressure on the captain. You don’t want them to score over three-and-a-half runs an over when the spinner is bowling. [Then] you’re forced to bring back the fast bowlers and they end up exhausted after the first day

Cheteshwar Pujara walks back after being dismissed for 153 in the first Test in Johannesburg. workout. “In that respect, Jaddu’s performance was good. Also the spinners will have to accept that when they travel abroad and when they’re bowling on the first-day wicket, their role is slightly different. They need to have a bit more patience and not give them runs so that you are also building pressure from one end. They get late turn from the third or fourth days and that’s the time they need to go in for the kill.

“When they play more and more games outside India, they’ll start accepting the fact that in their first 9-10 over spells in India they might get one-two or more wickets, [but] outside they need to be more patient in their first spell, especially if they are bowling on the first day of the Test match. It’s a bit tough on them but till the time we find a seaming allrounder, they’ll have to bear that.” (ESPN Cricinfo)

Cook ducks questions on Pietersen’s England future

(REUTERS) - England captain Alastair Cook declined yesterday to offer any assurances to mercurial batsman Kevin Pietersen about his test future. Smarting from a 5-0 Ashes whitewash, England’s misery in Australia was not confined to the field and coach Andy Flower had to issue a statement on Wednesday denying media speculation of a rift in the dressing room. British media had earlier claimed Flower has threatened to quit if Pietersen, their leading run-scorer in the Ashes series, continued to be part of the team’s rebuilding process. South Africa-born Pietersen, 33, ruled out retirement and said he wanted to help England regain the Ashes in 2015 but Cook was non-committal about the future of England’s fourth highest test scorer of all time. “It’s only been a week since everything has happened. So what is important for me is the one day series at this precise moment of time,” Cook told reporters ahead of Sunday’s one-day series opener at Melbourne. “We know that when we go home from this one-day series, a lot of important decisions on how we go forward with the test team, one day team, my future that kind of stuff.” Persistently asked about Pietersen’s attitude, Cook said: “It’s very hard for me to talk to you, the media, about stuff Kevin Pietersen like this. “It’s very hard and I can’t do that. Confidentiality and stuff like that means what happens in the dressing room, stays in the dressing room.” Told that it did not ring as a sound endorsement for Pietersen, Cook said, “You can regard that as you want. As is always the way with the media that’s what happens.” England’s Ashes campaign was badly hit when top order batsman Jonathan Trott abruptly returned home after the Brisbane opener to deal with a stress-related illness, necessitating a batting order rejig that did not click. Compounding the crisis, frontline spinner Graeme Swann quit international cricket after England had surrendered the coveted urn after a hat-trick of defeats. “Obviously when you lose a series five-nil, lot of things get thrown up and thrown in your face as the captain and you start looking at everything and it’s important that we do that,” said Cook. “What also is important is it’s only been a week since everything has happened. So what is important for me is the one day series at this precise moment of time.”

England captain admits lying in bed thinking about the way forward and ‘the decisions that go with that’ as debate about the leading batsman continues, writes Stephen Brenkley in Melbourne. By Stephen Brenkley


TURBULENT period in English cricket – another turbulent period in English cricket, that is – was given one of its abiding images yesterday. “I would be wrong if I said I wasn’t lying in my bed in the last week or so, thinking about the stuff I’d like to do, how I would like to lead this side forward and the decisions that go with that,” said Alastair Cook Tossing and turning, possibly shaking and shivering, Cook has been digesting the tumult that has befallen his side in seven weeks. It was not only the 5-0 defeat to Australia in the Ashes series, though that was as grim as it can become for an England cricketer, and Cook has now gone through it twice, once as a junior opening batsman seven years ago, now as captain. But the immediate aftermath of the final, most depressing, loss in Sydney brought with it claims, counterclaims and denials of a breakdown in relations between Andy Flower, the side’s coach whose official title is team director, and Kevin Pietersen, the former captain and undoubted star turn. It has dominated, occasionally overwhelmed, the agenda, and the start of the one-day series, in which Pietersen is not playing, was virtually forgotten. In the days since the tourists folded so wretchedly in 31.4 overs to lose the Fifth Test by an innings and 281 runs, a failure in which Pietersen played a full part, everything and nothing has happened. It will come to be seen as the latest episode of a saga which has at various times haunted and glorified the English game for 10 years. It may yet be the penultimate part. Flower should have suspected something was afoot when he was specifically asked about Pietersen’s future in his briefing to the press the day after the series ended. He played a dead bat to inquiries, as he did to almost every question in one of his least forthcoming interview sessions. The trouble with saying almost nothing to the press is that they then make their own inquiries, often discreetly, almost always off the record. It is a sporting version of the lobby system

50 balls. Instead, Smith exploded to make 65 off 48 before Arafat dismissed him with a slower ball in the 18th over. Arafat cleaned bowled Nathan Lyon two balls later to leave the Sixers requiring 23 runs off 14 balls with two wickets in hand. But Brett Lee and Chris Tremlett took 14 from Thomas’ fourth over, the 19th, to put the pressure back on Arafat. The Pakistan international conceded four runs from the first three balls of the last over when he only had six to play with. He then bowled Lee with an inswinging yorker. Josh Hazlewood scrambled a single to leave Tremlett needing two for the win and one for a tie from the final ball. Arafat misfielded Tremlett’s drive back to him and the resulting single forced the One-Over Eliminator. Jason Behrendorff was overshadowed by the adventures of Arafat. His opening burst of 3 for 21 decimated the Sixers top order. He was on a hat-trick in his second


Alastair Cook’s sleepless nights over Kevin Pietersen future

in politics, and it can be quite as pernicious. There was general talk of the end of an era, though Flower, Cook and everybody else have declined to deal in specifics. Since Pietersen has been a running story for 10 years, the gift that keeps on giving, his was the name in the frame. It seems to be agreed that Piet-ersen was a pain in the rear towards the end of the Ashes. He had not been in good form, and although he played with abundant common sense at times, there were plenty of the peccadilloes which have marked his entire career. Although England’s leading run- scorer in the series, he has not been able to allay the feeling that he is a player going down the other side of the mountain (though he is not alone in that). When the series was surrendered, Pietersen’s passion for it was reduced accordingly. The suggestion is he was not being a good team man, and this would have irked Flower. It may be remembered that when Pietersen was reintegrated into the side after his monumental disagreement in the summer of 2012 he apologised to his teammates and looked forward to “recommencing my career until at least 2015 as long as my body allows”. In the past few weeks some of the old Pietersen appears to have surfaced, perhaps brought on by the horror of the defeat, perhaps by a sense that as a senior player he was not sufficiently part of the decision- making process. By contrast, however, he felt more comfortable in the dressing room because of the retirement of his old enemy, Graeme Swann. The fact is that Swann had a common touch that Pietersen could never emulate. Flower’s failure to give Pietersen his unequivocal backing for the future naturally raised questions. Pietersen, too, was initially miffed, but it was explained to him that if Flower had deliberately backed Pietersen, he would have had to do the same for other senior players whose futures are on the line, such as Ian Bell and Jimmy Anderson, and who might have been themselves upset had they not been mentioned. Pietersen was mollified by this. It is probably fair to say that Flower and Pietersen are not bosom pals. They were both born in South Africa, are both earning their livings in English cricket, but they are not cut from

the same cloth. After England were knocked out of the World Twenty20 in Colombo in late 2012, Flower was asked if Pietersen was a good man. Pietersen had not played in the tournament because of his disagreement with management, and was days away from starting his period of reintegration. Flower replied: “I think he’s a... I think we all have good and bad in us, all of us.” The relationship has latterly been built on a mutual, slightly grudging respect of each other’s abilities. This was slow in coming from Pietersen, who had Flower in his sights as part of his intended coup of the coaching staff when he was captain in late 2008. It seems bizarre now to think he was ever captain of England. If Flower was not particularly well disposed towards Pietersen at the end of the Ashes, he had certainly made no decisions about Pietersen’s future role in the England team. Nor were relations between the pair anywhere near as frosty as they had been in 2012, when the rumpus about Pietersen’s personal demands and his relations with South Africa, England’s opponents, brought a temporary end to his career. Paul Downton, the new managing director of England cricket, might have had cause to wonder what on earth he has walked into. Flower and Cook are both safe in their roles unless Downton, who has as yet expressed no public opinions, decides revolution is the only way – and he will not. All involved have revealed just enough to indicate that there will be changes, that not everyone can survive and that rebuilding has to mean what it says. Pietersen, Bell, Anderson all have to be part of that. It might be handy for Pietersen if he were to tell his pal, Piers Morgan, to shut up. Morgan may think he is helping poor old Kev’s defence by tweeting as assiduously as he does. He is not. But that does not seem to have occurred to either of them. At the end of that briefing in Colombo 15 months ago this reporter said to Flower: “Whatever happens now, it will eventually all end in tears.” Flower did not demur. He probably knew it then, he almost certainly knows it now. (The Independent)

Four West Indies players retained by IPL teams

Arafat holds his nerve in One-Over Eliminator

YASIR Arafat took 2 for 1 in his One-Over Eliminator to deliver the Perth Scorchers a thrilling victory over the Sydney Sixers. Following a tie to send the game into the first One-Over Eliminator in BBL history Arafat clean bowled Steve Smith with a slower ball first ball of the over. Then, after Nic Maddinson had faced a dot and scored a single, Moises Henriques sliced a catch to backward point to bag the BBL’s first-ever unofficial pair and leave the Scorchers needing two runs to win. Adam Voges struck the first ball from Brett Lee for four send the Scorchers to second on the BBL table. Arafat was the sole reason for the tied game in the first place, as he experienced the highs and lows of T20 cricket in the Sixers’ nail-biting chase. He dropped Steve Smith at third man off Alfonso Thomas when the Sixers captain was on 27. It would have left the Sixers 6 for 79 needing 75 to win from

Brett Lee picked up career-best T20 figures of 4 for 28. over courtesy of deliveries that found the outside edges of both the right-handed Henriques and the left-handed Marcus North. Earlier Brett Lee had produced a similar burst, taking two wickets in the first over of the match after the Scorchers won the toss. His pace was too much for Craig Simmons and Mitch Marsh. Lee finished with career-best T20 figures of 4 for 28. B e t w e e n L e e ’s t w o spells a partnership of 129 between Simon Katich and Sam Whiteman set up the Scorchers total, before Lee castled Whiteman for 54. Katich made 71.

Ronchi, McCullums set up emphatic Kiwis T20 win

LUKE Ronchi and Brendon MCCullum turned a flagging New Zealand innings around with an unbeaten 85-run partnership in the last 7.1 overs, which gave them a comfortable total to defend given West Indies’ weakened batting. On a slowish pitch and short straight boundaries where mis-hits sail for comfortable sixes, Tino Best pulled New Zealand back twice, but Ronchi and Brendon McCullum smashed seven sixes and five fours in the last six overs to take the game away from West Indies. Brendon McCullum scored 32 off the last 15 balls he played, and Ronchi, the man who provided New Zealand the first turn of momentum, took 48 off 25. It could have been much worse for West Indies had it not been for the intervention from Best when he stopped the rampaging Martin Guptill at the top of the innings and Colin Munro in the middle. Guptill just pushed and smacked down the ground everything pitched in his arc. The last three balls of the second over went for six, four and four. Best got another over at the top, and showed he had realised you couldn’t pitch up at Eden park. Guptill still managed to hit a short delivery through mid-off for four,

but Best finally got the better of him when he cramped him up. A slow period followed during which New Zealand lost Jesse Ryder and Ross Taylor. Brendon McCullum put his head down to make sure they didn’t lose too many wickets, in the process going at under a run a ball . At 70 for 3 after 10 overs, they needed a push, which Munro provided with an 18-run over from Nikita Miller. Best, though, came back and removed him and Corey Anderson with aggressive short-of-a-length bowling. After 14 overs, Brendon McCullum was still only 28 off 30, and a low total loomed. Ronchi, though, began the turnaround with an onslaught on Andre Russell, whose first over was the 15th of the innings. To balls pitched up, all you needed was a decent swing of the bat, and they were flying into the stands. Sunil Narine got a quiet 16th over in, but he wasn’t accorded such respect in the 18th when Ronchi slog-swept him for a six, and then read a carrom ball to late-cut it for four. With the score at 175 after 19 overs, it was down to Best again. Best began well, bowling quick and short of a length, conceding just one run off the first three balls. This

is when Brendon McCullum took the calculated risk, charging him, making sure the short ball was now in his swinging arc, and sending it over long-on. With the next ball he guessed right, got under a low full toss, and ramped it way over fine leg for six. The two shots just pushed a gettable total into the realm of improbable for a weakened batting line-up. Lendl Simmons fell to the pace of Adam Milne, who would later go on to touch 153.1 kmph. Johnson Charles swung a few, but he is a low-percentage batsman, and soon inside-edged James Neesham. With the openers gone, it was always going to be down to Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell, but by the time they came together, the required rate had crossed 13, and there were 10 overs to go. Playing his 50th Twenty20 international, having led the side out, Nathan McCullum was enjoying the hole-outs from the frustrated middle order. It took Russell two balls to try to hit a six, but the tall Guptill pulled out a stunner at the long-on boundary. In Nathan McCullum’s next over, Bravo found Ryder at longoff. If the game hadn’t been over Tino Best took three wickets but the West Indies batsmen already, the last rites were now fell short of the target by 82 runs against New Zealand in performed.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE January 12, 2014


Cort Returns to Rowdies for 2014 Season THE NORTH American Soccer League’s (NASL) Tampa Bay Rowdies announced the re-signing of forward Carl Cort to a one-year contract through the 2014 NASL Season. Cort (6-4, 172) will be entering his third season with the club, after originally joining the Rowdies in August of 2012 and featured in 11 matches last year, where he started in four, with his goal in stoppage time against the Strikers on October 5, being one of the nominees for NASL Goal of the Year.  In 2012, Cort played eight matches after joining the club in the latter part of the season and his most important goal with the Rowdies was in the second leg of the 2012 NASL Championship Series against Minnesota on October 27, one that helped the Rowdies come back from a 2-goal deficit and win the 2012 NASL Soccer Bowl.  Cort, who played for Guyana’s national team the ‘Golden Jaguars’ during their FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in 2012, is from London, England, and is most known for his five seasons with Newcastle United Football Club, who competes in the English Premier League. The forward saw action for the Wolverhampton Wanderers over the course of four seasons from 2004-07 and tallied 32 goals, and in the 2004–05 season he notched 16 goals in 40 appearances, while the following season he added nine goals in the first 11 matches for Wolverhampton.  Many would remember him as the play maker for the Golden Jaguars’ two goals against El Salvador at the Guyana National Stadium in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in 2012, as he enabled first Gregory ‘Jackie Chan’ Richardson and later skipper Christopher Nurse to hand the Jaguars equalizing goals. However, his penalty miss in that same fixture was a costly one, as the Jaguars had done enough to level the scoreline and would have taken a one possession advantage, had he scored. In an invited comment after the game, this was Cort’s response in connection with the failed spot kick, “I wish I could go back in time and retake the penalty but that just isn’t going to happen. There are several moments in every athlete’s career where a situations arises like that, sometimes you succeed sometimes you don’t”. The 34 year old Cort added, “For me personally missing the penalty doesn’t take away the way I felt about my performance. I wouldn’t say the two assists gave me consolation for the penalty miss. I just see it as three separate major moments of the match. “It’s funny because the way some of the public look at it is in black and white. If I scored the penalty I walk off that field a hero. Even with 2 assists and a good performance because I missed the penalty I am now a villain”.

All matches for the day will be of 30 minutes duration and following the quarterfinals will be the semifinals which will see the winner of the first game tasking on the winner of the third in one semifinal matchup, while the victors from games two and four will meet in the other.

Windies players feeling homesick

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, (CMC) - Some of the West Indies players admit their minds were wandering elsewhere as they prepared to play the first of two Twenty20 matches against New Zealand. A number of their players are suffering from homesickness, with six of the team having been in New Zealand for the whole tour. Opening batsman Kieran Powell said with some players being away in India before hand, it’s become a long time from home. “This week will probably be the most difficult week of my life for sure, having been away from home for longer than anyone else on this tour. “...It takes a toll on anyone to be away from home for such a long time.” Some of the players departed the Caribbean on October 20 for a one-week Elite Tour in Orlando, Florida before traveling to India for two tests and three One-Day Internationals.
