Another complaint about a popular herbalist that goes by the name of ‘Sister Lynn’ has surfaced. This time, a Corentyne woman is claiming that her son started to vomit blood one day after using liquid bottled concoctions that she purchased from the herbalist’s Number Two Village, East Canje clinic in December.JoshuaAccording to Esther Tickchand, the treatment was supposed to have been for skin cancer and resulted in her dishing out US$1100 [$220,000] to the herbalist, who refused to repay any money after the vomiting episodes and allegedly chased her out of the clinic.Tickchand said that her son, Joshua,Jerseys NFL China, 19, had a skin condition. “He had some black spots coming out of his skin”, she stated.The boy visited numerous doctors who agreed that he had an allergic reaction “and they were treating him”. But it so happened that one night while enjoying an evening with the family, Tickchand was channel surfing and there was self- proclaimed herbalist Sister Lynn (whose real name is Lurline Smith) on the television hosting her Live TV herbal call-in programme.She decided to take her son to the clinic at Number Two Village on December 12, last, “and when she [Sister Lynn] looked at him,wholesale jerseys, she said that the boy does not have a skin problem—he has a skin cancer”. She told the herbalist that the boy had visited five doctors, [one at] N/A Hospital, Dr. Anamayah, Dr. Walter Singh,NFL Jerseys Cheap, Dr. Narine, and Dr. Balwant Singh and “all of them said it was the same problem and he was on a tablet called Prednisolone”. She stated that it “kept the spots down but the spots did not disappear. That was the reason I took him to [Sister] Lynn”.He would usually have high fever and headaches when the spots would appear on the skin, “and when I carry him to Sister Lynn, she said that the boy has skin cancer, so I started to cry and told her that it was not possible…so she said that the doctors want to ‘hang their mouth’ and that she (is) trained and certified to treat cancer and that she would treat him three-month treatment and the boy would get better”.Tickchand then enquired how much the treatment would cost, “and she told me US$1100. Then she said it will be another next $29,000 separate for three cancer injections and some cancer pills”. The woman doled out the $29,NFL Jerseys Supply,000 the very day and paid the $220,000 the following day.The drugsThe treatment comprised of several one- liter water bottles filled with liquid, one marked ‘Herbal tea’, tube creams, etc.During the second day of treatment,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, the boy started to vomit blood. “I went back and told her and she said that she cannot do anything about that and those drugs are expensive. So I asked her to return some of my money but she did not want to do that”.Upon advice from family members, she was asked to do a biopsy to determine whether the teen had skin cancer, which she later did with Dr. Motilall at the Anamayah Memorial Hospital in Corentyne, on December 15, 2012. The results proved negative.“So I went back and told her and showed her the results and she started to threaten me to get out of there because I ‘do not know she is who and that she deals with Maccabee bible and that she can appear and disappear’.“But I know she was just trying to scare me to get out of there”. Repeated attempts to reason with Sister Lynn to collect back some of the money proved futile and Tickchand then made a report at the Central Police Station. “There was not [any] justice there and they told me that I have to go take a private action [lawyer]”.However, the woman said that taking a lawyer to sue Sister Lynn for receiving money under false pretence would be too expensive, given that she already dished out US$1100 for the treatment.‘She ripping off a lot of people because afterwards then I get to hear…that people telling me that she is a fraud and not only here—Georgetown too—Also I was made to understand that she did it to another man in the next village- -she took almost $249,000 from those people and almost killed the man too”.When contacted, Sister Lynn stated that Tickchand “is a lying, wicked bitch”. “It get some very wicked people—I have clients who can tell you about me”,China Jerseys, she stated. She noted, too, that she never told Tickchand that the boy had skin cancer, rather that the black lesions could become cancerous and prescribed the concoctions and treatment.“People come to me—no one is forced to come to me because they visit all the doctors and when they get fed up they come to me”. Sister Lynn stated, too, that she is an “indigenous lady and I have a right to practice my indigenous rights”.The Guyana Association for Alternative Medicine has distanced itself from some self-proclaimed herbalists.

PAT DIALMost Guyanese,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, today, are not aware of the importance of the Fire Service to the protection of the lives, property and comfort of citizens.  The Fire Service is taken for granted unlike in the last century when citizens were very aware of its importanceIn those times,China Jerseys, there was an aura of romance about the “Fire Brigade” as it was then known.  Children at school aspired to be firemen and a good proportion of the Professional and Business classes joined the Auxiliary Fire Brigade since being a member was something of a status symbol.Though the work and activities of the Fire Brigade, now known as “The Guyana Fire Service,” have expanded manifold, people are now even less cognizant of its importance.  The only time when one seems to know of the Fire Service is when one is in trouble.In this week’s Consumer Concerns, we thought of focusing on the Guyana Fire Service so that Consumers and the public at large could once again begin to be conscious of this important segment of Guyanese life.We therefore spoke with Mr. McGregor, the acting Fire Chief, since Mr. Marlon Gentle, the substantive Fire Chief was on leave.  Mr. McGregor handed us over to Mr. Compton Sparman, the longest serving officer of the Fire Service,NFL Cheap Jerseys, and as expected, he was a mine of information and anecdotes.In earlier colonial times, the Fire Brigade was centered in Georgetown. The Georgetown Service had the responsibility countrywide in spite of the fact that each sugar plantation had a fire extinguishing unit of its own.  Today, the Service has a true presence in every part of the country:In Georgetown there are four stations – Stabroek which is headquarters, Alberttown, Campbellville and West Ruimveldt.  On East Bank Demerara, there is a station at Diamond and one at Timehri.  The Timehri station specializes in dealing with aircraft fires, aircraft running off the runways,Wholesale Jerseys From China, and other possible aeroplane accidents as well as the usual fire-fighting duties.On West Coast Demerara, there is the Leonora Station.  In Berbice,cheap nfl jerseys, there are four stations – Onverwagt, New Amsterdam and two in Corriverton.  There are also stations at Linden, Bartica and Anna Regina.  There are five Auxiliary Stations at Lethem, Kwakwani, Port Kaituma, Mabaruma and Mazaruni.The Fire Service deals with fires of all types as for example, grass fires, house fires, electrical fires, aircraft and fuel fires.  Each type of fire requires its own technique of extinguishing – some types of fire require the use of water, others may require the use of foam or dry powder.  Sometimes, it is necessary to employ the use of explosives.In addition to its core activity of extinguishing fires, the Fire Service offers a plethora of services and help to the public.  We will mention some of these so that the public may have a better understanding of the important role of the Fire Service to the life of the community and at the same time, inform them of the many services open to all.Rescuing victims of various kinds of accidents is one of the daily activities of the Fire Service.  For example, collapsing old houses, in traffic accidents or in construction work, the Fire Service is the only entity which possesses the necessary tools such as various types of appropriate saws, jacks,Wholesale Jerseys, hammers and other tools and is able to apply these immediately.  At the same time, the Fire Service is always ready to offer first aid to victims.There are other types of rescue.  Sometimes someone may be marooned on a tall tree and can’t come down, or a construction worker on a very high scaffold may have an attack of vertigo and has to be brought down to save his life or a would-be suicide from a house roof.Animals are also rescued as for example someone’s valuable pet cat climbing a high tree and can’t come down or horses falling into canals and have to be lifted out.During periods of drought or water shortage, the Service has kept institutions such as schools, Help and Shelter, the Palms and even private residences supplied with water.The Service often has to hose out tarmacs in preparation for public and even private functions.  It would adjust flags and flag poles for embassies, government departments and even private residences.  It would blow out drains in various parts of the City thus facilitating easier drainage.At a fee, it would supply visiting ships with water, salvage sunken ships or pump out water from ships which may be taking in water.One of the most useful services to the community is the Fire Service’s ambulance.  Quite often, the ambulance is the only one available at the time of an accident or to fetch the sick when other ambulances are unavailable.  And first-aid is a continuous activity at all times.One very important aspect of the administration of the Service is the continuous training of firemen in the most modern techniques.The Fire Service runs a Training Complex at Leonora which accommodates 60 trainees.  There is also continuous foreign training in the Caribbean, especially in Barbados and Trinidad.  Training in the United Kingdom is a tradition which has continued from colonial times; for example, seven firemen went to England last year for 5-week training programmes.Despite the great impact the Service makes on Guyanese life, the Management is not complacent but is always working for improvements.

As earlier indicated by CARICOM Assistant Secretary General for Human and Social Development,Wholesale Jerseys, Dr. Edward Greene,NFL Jerseys Supply, the development of a crime prevention strategy was discussed at the seventeenth meeting of the Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD). The forum concluded yesterday and a strategy formulated by the Secretariat in collaboration with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) was put on the table.“It’s a programme out of Austria and its something that we are following through with…It is something very important because of the level of violence in schools and the issues related to adolescents, crime and violence,Cheap NFL Jerseys,” Dr. Greene informed.“In the Council for Human and Social Development where we place emphasis on people, and in particular the youth,NFL Jerseys Authentic, we are concerned with how you prevent the development of crime and what are some of the aspects of prevention that are of direct relation to education in particular as well as youth programmes.”According to him, the crime prevention programme is something that was discussed recently with some external partners and that strategy would engage the schools as well as the community groups.“The programme is a very important aspect of how we deal with reducing the level of crime, and in particular crime as it affects our youth.Dr Greene stated that crime prevention is not only about programmes to check the rate of crime but it also relates to collaborations with the economic and  tourist sectors so that people are aware and it also has to do with a reduction of poverty since crime is driven by need.According to him,Cheap Jerseys Online, all countries need this,NFL Jerseys Supply, especially if it is being looked at from the CSME and free movement point of view. “You could safely say that crime could easily spread.”Dr Greene noted that it is important to note that crime has to be tackled regionally and that is the reason why this crime prevention strategy is a regional one and it really complements an ongoing programme which is done under the Council for National Security and law enforcement council in which the secretariat drives some of the policy.“So while we do the crime prevention, we have an allied group, Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACS), which is located in Trinidad and Tobago that deals with the implementation of some of the strategies like border security. We are tackling this problem of crime and security at the regional level, cognizant of the fact that some countries have greater needs at this present time than others.”

Despite inclement weather,Jerseys China Wholesale, the four-lane expansion works from the ‘high-bridge’ at Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) to Diamond/ Grove are moving apace. In fact,Cheap NFL Jerseys, the contractor,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, BK International,NFL Jerseys Supply, has utilized the rainy conditions to compact the sand-filled lanes created.The high-bridge that will be reconstructedAccording to the company’s Second Checker, the rains did not negatively impact the project.

However,NFL Jerseys Authentic, Diamond’s deplorable car park will be removed and probably be placed in neighbouring Grove to accommodate works on the corridor.A significant portion of those works should conclude within the next three months.Another major aspect of this US$3.4M project is the flattening of the ‘high-bridge’ and its expansion.This will see disruption in the flow of traffic,Jerseys NFL China, but the company will try to enforce proper traffic management. The employee emphasized that to the right of the bridge a two-lane carriageway would be erected and to the left a one-lane road.He added that those three-lanes would facilitate traffic while the contractor flattens the bridge. When concluded the new structure and the two lanes would be used as the main road, and the extra lane will be discarded.The canal which empties water from DDL into the Demerara River would not be affected. The contractor will install pipes when reconstructing the structure. However, DDL’s wooden fence will have to be removed to accommodate the new lanes.In addition, utility poles will have to be removed also.

Barbadian Member of Parliament,Jerseys China Wholesale, Edmund Hinkson, wants Guyanese to boost the island’s agriculture,Authentic NFL Jerseys Wholesale, and has said that the country erred in sending back to Guyana a large number of these workers between 2008 and 2010.Barbadian Parliamentarian, Edmund HinksonNoting the decline in the island’s agriculture since the Guyanese were booted out, the Opposition Barbados Labour Party Parliamentarian has urged Prime Minister Freundel Stuart to use his close friendship with President David Granger to work out an arrangement where Guyanese with knowledge in agriculture could be brought to Barbados to work for specific periods.Hinkson made the plea in the Barbados Parliament on Tuesday during a debate on a resolution for government to guarantee a loan of Bar$73 million (Bar$1 = US 50 cents) to its ailing sugar industry. He recalled that when the current government came to power in 2008, led by now deceased Prime Minister David Thompson, it embarked on a programme of mass deportation of Guyanese,NFL Cheap Jerseys, many of whom had been working in agriculture production.“So we sent home the Guyanese who were enhancing the agriculture sector of Barbados.“So what is the policy now on this issue?” he asked,China NFL Jerseys, noting that in order to support the plan to use the $73 million in the sugar industry, it would need such workers, who are not now present on the island.Hinkson spoke of Guyanese working prior to 2008 under the then Barbados Labour Party government, “and keeping that sector above water,” but he added, “They were discouraged. They were sent home to the detriment of the agriculture sector and other aspects of the Barbados economy”.“These people were here spending money, paying rent, buying clothes,NFL Jerseys Supply, increasing the economy of Barbados.”He advised Prime Minister Stuart – who received Guyana’s second highest honour, The Order of Roraima, in February – to ignore the position of the late Prime Minister Thompson, who Stuart succeeded, and devise a programme for getting Guyanese workers back on the island.Hinkson noted that the Central Bank of Barbados has reported on a continued decline in agricultural production over recent years.He said, “we can only urge the Prime Minister to look at this issue, and if it is that we need to bring in people from the Caribbean to work the agriculture industry under a regulated basis, not saying en masse,cheap nfl jerseys, and a farm labour type programme for a few months a year, let us do that”.

…volunteers his service to ease flood woesPresidential Candidate for the People’s National Congress Reform,China NFL Jerseys, David Granger,Cheap Jerseys Online, accompanied by a team that included Dr George Norton, yesterday visited the flood- affected community of Lethem.Granger,Authentic NFL Jerseys Wholesale, at an emergency press conference at Congress Place, Sophia, said that he and his team carried relief supplies and emergency equipment for the immediate distribution to the residents.The items were distributed to displaced persons who have been housed temporarily at the Culvert City Nursery School and Arapaima Primary School.According to Granger the team had to move around the flood-affected community by boat. The schools are not proper; nursing mothers do not have any privacy,Wholesale Jerseys, he said.He further told the media that there are no baths for persons who are housed at the school.He said that although the Rupununi is nearly 58,000 square kilometer and is one of Guyana’s largest region, surprisingly, the infrastructure is so poorly developed.“This rainfall in early June has completely cut the Region off from the rest of the country,” Granger said.According to Granger parts of the Linden–Lethem road are inundated and vehicles along with passengers have been stranded and are unable to reach their destinations.“We have trucks stuck in the road and persons are stranded there,Wholesale Jerseys From China,” Granger told the media.Granger said that the runway at the Lethem aerodrome is “cracking up” and is becoming dangerous for aircraft.“If the government could spend millions to resurface the South Dakota racing circuit why can’t they refurbish the airstrip?”He said that situation has been aggravated by unplanned settlement, under-developed infrastructure and an unprepared administration which was overwhelmed by the catastrophe.According to the presidential candidate the town should not be run by outsiders, instead they should work to make it township.Granger added that it is common knowledge that the weather patterns in the Rupununi savannah are unique and significantly different from those in the rest of the country.“There is one long dry season from August to April and one long wet season from May to July,” Granger said.Although the administration was faced with almost the identical flood situation some five years ago, it still seems ill-prepared for a recurrence, he added.“There seems to be no disaster preparedness plan for the Region. No Civil Defence stores have been stocked there although there is a warehouse which is not being used,” Granger said.He said that there seems to be no mobilization of voluntary relief workers. Granger condemned the government for not having the Linden- Lethem access road completed and called for its immediate surfacing to ensure integration of the region with the rest of the country.He also insisted that Lethem must be upgraded to the status of a town to allow residents to elect a municipality which is more concerned about their interest.Also a volunteer Militia must be recruited, trained and equipped to carry out civil defence tasks and protect the community during fire,NFL Jerseys Authentic, floods and other disasters.Granger said that he is willing to work along with the Government to properly manage the situation in Lethem.He said that a majority of the persons in Lethem feel that the situation could have been prevented.

by Sir Ronald Sanders(The writer is a Senior Fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London and Massey College, University of Toronto)Recently,Wholesale Jerseys From China, it has become fashionable for Caribbean achievers to write memoirs. I applaud this trend. So much distorted and often jaundiced material has been written about Caribbean countries, their history and events by persons from outside the region that a book, reflecting on life in the region by a Caribbean person is a most welcome development.Such books bring a more intimate view and authentic perspective of the region and its peoples.Oscar Ramjeet’s “From Errand boy to Solicitor-General” is remarkable for its broad sweep through the Caribbean – from Guyana in the South to the US Virgin Islands in the North. It is peppered with the politics and the personalities in each of them,NFL Jerseys Supply, as experienced up-close by a consummate chronicler of events.Ramjeet gives a vivid, educative and entertaining account of growing up in colonial British Guiana (now Guyana) and his subsequent experiences in other Caribbean countries, including St Vincent and the Grenadines and Belize where he served as Solicitor-General.A few gems of Guyanese life are revealed in Ramjeet’s account of his early life in a poor Indo-Guyanese family, including the ambition that their children should do better. His mother’s weeping when, at the age of eleven, he brought home his first pay packet from working in a saw mill was anything but joyful. She lamented the circumstances of her son’s child labour.But, then there was his father, a self-taught accounts clerk who got him a job, at the age of 12,Authentic NFL Jerseys Wholesale, as an errand boy in a leading law firm because he wanted his son to be a lawyer one day. Ramjeet’s father did not live to see him satisfy that ambition.In the lawyer’s office, Ramjeet encountered what appeared to be a miraculous instrument – a typewriter.   Ramjeet taught himself to type – a skill that he used to good advantage when he later launched into journalism, a passion that he never abandoned even though he went on to a career in the law in several countries.The racial tension between Guyanese of Indian and African descent was also a backdrop to Ramjeet’s experience but one which he eschewed for its ignorance and backwardness. Thus, he joined a Lodge, called the Mechanics, at the age of 21.   He was the only non-African member, evincing the comment from his Indian compatriots, ‘Look nuh, Oscar in de lodge wid de black people dem’.Education and practise of the law were Ramjeet’s two ambitions that he pursued single-mindedly. In his quest of the latter he secured a job as an ‘errand boy’ in a law firm of great note in Guyana. Two of its members – Forbes Burnham and Desmond Hoyte – became heads of state. He rose eventually to the position of clerk.He combined this latter task with free-lance journalism for both radio and newspapers, becoming a well-known name throughout Guyana.   I encountered him myself in those days when I was a very young general manager of the national radio station and he was an older but accomplished broadcaster and writer.He brought to his reporting the same depth of research and quality of narration that are obvious in his book.Forbes Burnham, the first Prime Minister and first Executive President of Guyana remains a figure of great fascination to historians,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, politicians, academics and lawyers throughout the English-speaking Caribbean.   Ramjeet devotes an entire chapter of his book to Burnham whom he first met as a teenager and in whose law firm he worked as a clerk.For anyone seeking an insight into Burnham as a lawyer and politician, Ramjeet provides a first-hand view. One senses that while he is critical of Burnham, particularly in the final years of his regime, Ramjeet harbours a deep admiration – even affection – for the late Guyanese leader.In the event, the chapter is a candid narration of a close-up relationship with Burnham who seemed always to be kind. That kindness extended even when the Guyanese President became offended by a broadcast Ramjeet made that was critical of the government.Like many other West Indians, Ramjeet became a convinced Caribbean regionalist while studying for his law degree at the University of the West Indies (UWI). He says of that period, “My soul was becoming genuinely West Indian. I met and befriended many Trinidadians, Jamaicans, Barbadians, and students from the smaller Caribbean islands”. Among the many friends he made at the UWI were persons who became lawyers and political leaders in several Caribbean countries.Ramjeet provides an interesting narrative of the fortune and fate of many of them,Jerseys NFL China, as well as the ambitions that motivated them. He recalls, for instance, a rivalry between Vincent Teekah, later a minister in the Burnham government, and Herbert Volney, who became an ill-fated Minister of Justice in the Kamla Persad-Bissessar government in Trinidad and Tobago, over who would first address the United Nations.This chapter provides an understanding of the UWI’s central role in creating the importance of regional integration in the development of a Caribbean society.Ramjeet went on to become Registrar of the Supreme Court and Registrar of Companies in Montserrat and then Solicitor-General in St Vincent and the Grenadines and Belize. He also worked in private practice in the British Virgin Islands with one of the region’s great legal luminaries, Dr Joseph Archibald, who emerges in this memoir in the highest estimation of Ramjeet.His experiences in these Caribbean countries are written in the vein of pure theatre. There are candid accounts of court cases and the behaviour of lawyers and judges that are humorous but with serious over tones.   Even if the reader is not familiar with the characters and countries of these dramas, the narrative makes fascinating reading. They also provide an insight into the politics of the islands and the leaders who bestride them.In his varied careers,NFL Jerseys Supply, Ramjeet was also a Cricket administrator and knew well the Indo-Guyanese cricketers who came from Berbice, the area of Guyana where he was also born. He writes of cricket stars such as Rohan Kanhai, Alvin Kallicharran, and Joe Solomon with an intimacy born of his deep involvement with their careers.The overarching quality of this 352-page memoir published by The Caribbean Press is its no-holds-barred style and content. For sure, there will be many persons – dead and alive – that will not like Ramjeet’s book and would prefer it had not been published. He has displayed remarkable courage in telling the stories as he saw them. He pulls no punches even about himself, particularly his philandering.The book is written simply and engagingly. Its absolute frankness gives it great appeal. Historians, students of Caribbean law, and journalists will all find it a very interesting read.Responses and previous commentaries:
