Si bien las reuniones trienales del EYE suelen atraer a más de 1.000 participantes, el EJE inaugural se prepara a recibir a unas 250 personas, incluidos los organizadores, los voluntarios y las delegaciones de cada una de las siete diócesis de la IX Provincia, así como líderes de la juventud anglicana de varios otros países latinoamericanos.“Esto ha sido un sueño durante muchos años”, le dijo a Episcopal News Service Glenda McQueen, funcionaria encargada de Asociaciones Globales para América Latina y el Caribe. A los jóvenes de la IX Provincia con frecuencia les resulta difícil viajar a Estados Unidos para asistir al EYE, donde el inglés es el idioma principal, explicó McQueen, que está radicada en Panamá.El EJE “les dará una oportunidad a los jóvenes y a los jóvenes adultos de esta zona de estar presentes y podrán hablar en español y comunicarse y cantar en español, y alabar a Dios en español, que es su lengua”, dijo ella.Varios departamentos de la Iglesia Episcopal colaboran en el proyecto, entre ellos Formación de Fe, Ministerios Étnicos y Asociaciones Globales, y están trabajando estrechamente con el Equipo de Planificación del EJE19 de la IX Provincia.“Estamos adiestrando a la gente a hacer esto, de manera que en el futuro —y esperamos que sea pronto— el próximo evento estará dirigido por la IX Provincia”, dijo el Rdo. Anthony Guillén a ENS en una entrevista. Guillén es el director de Ministerios Étnicos y el misionero para el Ministerio Latino/Hispano de la Iglesia Episcopal.La IX Provincia de la Iglesia Episcopal comprende las diócesis del territorio estadounidense de Puerto Rico y la República Dominicana en el Caribe, y los países de Centro y Sudamérica Colombia, Honduras, Venezuela y Ecuador, este último dividido en las diócesis de Ecuador Central y Ecuador Litoral. La Diócesis de Cuba, luego de ser recibida de vuelta en la Iglesia Episcopal en la Convención General de 2018, también ha sido invitada a enviar una delegación al EJE19, aunque Cuba se ha unido a la II Provincia, no a la IX.La mayoría de los episcopales en estas diócesis y sus congregaciones hablan español como su idioma principal, lo cual dijo Guillén que es una razón de que la IX Provincia haya sido históricamente ignorada por la Iglesia Episcopal que es fundamentalmente anglófona.“Nunca realmente pensé cómo ser receptivo a la IX Provincia”, dijo Guillén, pero en años recientes los líderes episcopales reavivaron la esperanza de salvar esa barrera geográfica, cultural y lingüística mediante eventos como el EJE19. El Consejo Ejecutivo también ha prometido celebrar una reunión en cada una de las nueve provincias de la Iglesia durante este trienio, incluida una de las diócesis de la IX Provincia. “Hay un intento de ir y hacer cosas en la IX Provincia”, dijo Guillén.La planificación para el EJE19 ha estado en marcha durante varios años y, en 2018, la Convención General aprobó $350.000 para el evento. Se celebrará en Ciudad del Saber, una antigua base militar de EE.UU. en Ciudad de Panamá que se ha convertido en un centro empresarial y de conferencias con teatros, auditorios, aulas y un albergue estilo dormitorio para los participantes del EJE19. El obispo primado Michael Curry está previsto que asista.“El EJE19 será una increíble reunión de jóvenes dispuestos a aprender acerca del Movimiento de Jesús y a reclamar su lugar en él”, dijo Curry en un comunicado de prensa acerca del evento.Aunque Panamá es parte de la Iglesia Anglicana de la Región Central de América, comúnmente conocida como IARCA, y no es parte de la Iglesia Episcopal, el equipo de planificación de la IX Provincia para el EJE19 escogió este país centroamericano como la ubicación ideal debido a su proximidad con las diócesis episcopales de la región y los económicos costos de viaje.Todavía no se ha finalizado un programa detallado, pero Wendy Karr Johnson, encargada de Formación de Fe de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo que el evento de dos días de duración incluirá una serie de actividades cultuales, talleres y excursiones, semejantes a los que se ofrecen en el EYE.El obispo de Panamá, Julio Murray, ha sido generoso en apoyar la planificación del EJE en su diócesis, dijo Johnson. Se espera que él les hable a los participantes acerca del contexto histórico y espiritual de la ciudad anfitriona: “¿Por qué este lugar nos habla, y qué tiene que enseñarnos?”, afirmó Johnson.El EJE19 está concebido para jóvenes de entre 16 y 26 años de edad. A las diócesis episcopales que participan se les invitó a enviar delegaciones de hasta 15 personas, hasta 13 jóvenes acompañados por dos adultos que los cuiden.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Chelsea were on the back foot for most of a one-sided first half of the Europa League final.Benfica, with their slick passing and movement, have had the upper hand at the Amsterdam ArenA, where Ashley Cole blocked a shot from Oscar Cardozo before Nicolas Gaitan fired over the Chelsea bar.The Portuguese team continued to sweep forward and Rodrigo missed a good chance to put them ahead when he failed to connect from inside the area.But the Blues, without the injured Eden Hazard and John Terry, finished the half strongly, with Oscar beginning to cause the opposing defence some problems.And Frank Lampard’s swerving shot brought a save from Benfica keeper Artur.Chelsea: Cech, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Cahill, Cole, Lampard, Luiz, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Torres.Subs: Turnbull, Mikel, Moses, Ferreira, Marin, Benayoun, Ake.Click here for our Chelsea v Benfica 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Bridget Hilton-BarberI was driving through Lenyene a few Saturdays ago – it’s a small rural township outside Tzaneen in Limpopo province, where I live – when I noticed a lively crowd of people gathered at the edge of a dusty field.I slowed down, thinking it was a local soccer match, but then I realised the crowd was watching wannabe drivers doing their driver’s licence tests on a makeshift testing ground.In the absence of malls, movie houses and other entertainment in places like this, driving tests have become a spectator sport. I pulled over and watched for a bit.It was better than Isidingo, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful combined. There was wild clapping, cheering and whistling as hopeful drivers, most of them youngsters and mainly women, climbed into the truck. Most people here do a Code 10 licence for a truck, which automatically qualifies you for a Code 08 for a regular car.As the nervous drivers were put through their paces, the crowd either booed or whooped according to their performance. Those who stalled or knocked over the orange road markers were met with guffaws and insults, while those who didn’t got clapping and ululating.The successful emerged to high fives and backslapping; the unsuccessful slunk off with their tails between their legs.On the edges of the crowd, hawkers were doing a brisk trade in roasted mealies and fresh fruit and vegetables, cellphone airtime and cold beers. A group of young guys in a VW Golf with tinted windows and dashboard fur were playing loud oomsta-oomsta music. I left reluctantly as a crowd of young women gathered happily around a mate who had gotten her licence. A little way down the track, a mother comforted her crying daughter who one can only presume failed the grade.Driving back home I noticed for the first time how many driving schools there are in the area – some in official-looking buildings, others in nothing more than a painted hut under a scruffy acacia tree.One, called David’s Driving School, featured smashed windows, a series of wrecked cars parked inauspiciously outside and a lone goat tethered to a post.In Tzaneen alone there are more than six driving schools, including Bongy’s Driving School, Tzaneen Driving School, TJ’s Driving School, the International Driving School, even the interestingly named Surprise Driving School! I’m sure the instructors there have their fair share of surprising tales.Most mornings and afternoons on the outskirts of town you will see crowds of youngsters waiting on the side of the road for their turn behind the wheel of their chosen school’s truck. And drop in anytime to the town’s testing grounds and the place will be packed to capacity with young people waiting to sit their learners’ licences or do their practical driving test.Upward mobility in rural areas has come to mean getting a licence. And it seems the best way to do it is through one of the schools which, although don’t guarantee a licence, have a high pass rate. They are pricey though – a course at your average driving school costs upwards of R3 000 (US$380), excluding the payment of R800 ($100) or so which goes to the traffic department.It’s not surprising that some resort to the help of local sangomas. In the high street in Tzaneen, a blackboard on the pavement outside a herbalist’s shop offers help for “asthma, adultery, sex problems, drivers licence, madness and debt problem (sic)”.Apparently they don’t come too cheap either. And, of course, the chance to actually buy your own car is impossibly out of reach for most people.But nothing, it seems, is stopping the tide of people heading for driving schools. And nothing is stopping the testing grounds becoming popular meeting spots.I noticed while driving through Bolobedu South the other day that many old gogos bring along their own plastic chairs, which they use to sit on while they wait for a lift to the testing ground, and then use them to sit on while they watch the thrill of the show. This is local drama at its best.Bridget Hilton-Barber is a well-known travel writer based in Limpopo province. She has worked as editor of South African Airways’ inflight magazine Sawubona, debut editor of Lowveld Living, travel correspondent for Radio 702 and travel editor of FairLady magazine. She is the author of seven books.
26 March 2010 Approximately 500 general health practitioners from around Gauteng province have also indicated that their practices will be available as free testing sites. She added that Discovery and the government would discuss exactly how the money would be used. Testing facilities Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has encouraged all organisations in South Africa to contribute their efforts during the campaign. General Manger for new markets at Discovery Health, Penny Tlhabi, commended the Health Department for taking such an initiative. Their support will be through funding and free services during the campaign’s launch – pushed back from 15 April to a date soon to be announced – when millions of South Africans are expected to visit sites across the country to get tested for HIV. South Africa’s private healthcare sector has pledged millions of rands in support of the government’s new HIV Counselling and Testing (HCT) campaign. Tlhabi said the Discovery had decided to be part of the campaign in an attempt to mobilise its members to go for testing during the campaign. Discovery Medical Scheme has pledged R5-million for the campaign, with Life Healthcare pledging R500 000. They have also committed to support the training of health workers. “We are happy that the minister of health has taken leadership, and as the private sector we believe that this should have been done long ago, but we are happy it’s finally happening and believe that it will succeed,” Tlhabi said. ‘Taking leadership’ Other companies that have offered their support include Clicks and the Link Pharmacy Group. They have pledged to make 470 pharmacy clinics available for free testing throughout the entire campaign. Source: BuaNews
About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd hero Ince blasts De Gea for Newcastle interview: Would Schmeichel say that?by Freddie Taylor18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Paul Ince has blasted David De Gea for his post-match interview after Sunday’s loss to Newcastle United.The Spaniard was at a loss for words when speaking to reporters after the 1-0 defeat at St. James’ Park.”I watched David de Gea’s post-match interview and I was at a loss,” Ince said to PaddyPower.”He’s meant to be one of the leaders. If that was Peter Schmeichel standing there, there’s no chance you’d have seen that interview. Rather than him addressing and recognising where the team were going wrong, it just felt like ‘I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know.'”This is one of the top players, the leaders at Man United, who has just signed a five-year contract. And he looks like he doesn’t have a clue what’s going on.”If you’re a United fan listening to your goalkeeper, one of the main leaders in the team, and that’s the interview you hear you’d be right to [think it was a disgrace]. I’d be looking thinking, ‘he doesn’t have a clue what’s going on – I bet he’s regretting signing that contract.'”
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool legend Souness scoffs at Man Utd youth policyby Paul Vegas5 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend Graeme Souness has questioned Manchester United’s youth policy.He warns that United won’t be able to nuture these players if they are drafted into a squad low on confidence.”Ever since the Busby Babes, the club have made a fetish out of youth,” Souness wrote in the Sunday Times. “In itself, that is no bad thing, especially at a club which subsequently brought George Best through its ranks and then produced the Class of 92. “It’s possible that the likes of Marcus Rashford, James Garner and Mason Greenwood might go on to emulate their illustrious predecessors — though I’m sceptical — but just because they have been picked to start for United while they are still teenagers doesn’t make it so. “The difficulty is compounded by the fact that they are being thrust into a team which is shorn of authority and confidence.”
Leader of Government Business in the Senate and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator the Hon. Kamina Johnson Smith, said the Government intends to put the infrastructure and systems in place over the next 12 months. A National Identification System (NIDS) is intended to provide a comprehensive and secure structure to enable the capture and storage of identity information for all Jamaicans. The National Identification and Registration Bill, which seeks to establish a reliable identification system for Jamaicans, was passed in the Senate on Monday (November 13) after 12 hours of deliberations. Story Highlights The National Identification and Registration Bill, which seeks to establish a reliable identification system for Jamaicans, was passed in the Senate on Monday (November 13) after 12 hours of deliberations.The legislation was passed with 168 amendments and will return to the House of Representatives today (November 14) for approval.A National Identification System (NIDS) is intended to provide a comprehensive and secure structure to enable the capture and storage of identity information for all Jamaicans.Each citizen will be provided with a randomised nine-digit National Identification Number (NIN), which they will have for life.Leader of Government Business in the Senate and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator the Hon. Kamina Johnson Smith, said the Government intends to put the infrastructure and systems in place over the next 12 months.“The pilot would begin in January 2019, and the national roll-out is intended to commence in September 2019 (and will be undertaken) over a period of three to four years. NIDS is not an event; it is a journey, a transformation of how we do business,” she pointed out.Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, Senator Donna Scott-Mottley, urged the Government to ensure that the public education programme that is to be developed will be “designed in such a way, that it will get full participation of the public, who can make their thoughts heard”.She argued that the number of amendments to the Bill, including 100 from the Lower House, is an indication that it should have been put before a joint select committee.Senator Johnson Smith, in response, said, “I believe that it is actually the converse. We have demonstrated that with focus, with energy, and with cooperation, we can make changes in a timely manner.”The layered roll-out and management of the NIDS will be handled by a new agency, the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), which will replace the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) and provide more enhanced services.
DETROIT – Chinese automaker GAC Motor will scrap the brand name it uses in China when it enters the U.S. market next year because it could be confused with President Donald Trump’s surname.For the past eight years, GAC has sold cars and SUVs under the brand Trumpchi in its home market, but is now researching new names before the company’s expected U.S. debut in the fourth quarter of 2019.“We want to provide the best service for American customers, so we want to not be closely linked with politics,” Wang Qiujing, president of GAC Engineering Institute China, said through an interpreter in an interview at the Detroit auto show. “This is the reason we want to rename the brand.”GAC picked the Chinese name Trumpchi in 2010, well before Trump was elected. The similarity to Trump is just a coincidence, Wang added. GAC will continue to use Trumpchi in China, where the word means legend and good fortune.GAC’s first vehicle in the U.S. will be the GS8, a loaded-out full-size SUV that will cost about $35,000. Two more vehicles are being researched for U.S. sales, but have not been selected yet.The company showed seven different of its models on a video and unveiled two more at the Detroit show. One is a gull-wing compact electric SUV called the Enverge, which is still in the concept phase. The automaker says it will go over 370 miles on a single charge. Also unveiled was the GA4 midsize sedan that will go on sale in China later this month.The GS8 would be comparable to a big luxury SUV, many of which go for more than $60,000. Wang said he didn’t know what the brand’s lowest-price vehicle would be in the U.S.GAC sold just over 500,000 automobiles in China last year, up 37 per cent from 2016.The company says it is negotiating with partner Fiat Chrysler about possible distribution of vehicles. Wang said GAC is the top-ranked domestic brand for initial quality in China in J.D.Power and Associates surveys, and it ranks fourth or fifth when joint ventures with foreign automakers are included. He says the company’s vehicle quality will be ready for U.S. buyers, and it will work with U.S. partners to meet stricter U.S. safety standards.Chinese automakers are advanced and have expertise in mass production but the American market may not be ready yet to accept GAC, said Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports’ director of auto testing.Other Chinese companies showed vehicles at the CES gadget show in Las Vegas last week such as Byton, which unveiled an electric prototype that’s like a Tesla Model X SUV but costs thousands less, Fisher said.“There will be Chinese automakers at the top of the market and at the bottom of the market, and it will be very interesting to see how they are received,” he said.GAC already has a research centre in Silicon Valley and is working on another one in Detroit, as well as a Los Angeles design centre. Initially it will import vehicles from China but depending on sales, plans to build a factory in the U.S.GAC, which stands for Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., also plans to enter other global markets after the U.S., including Europe.____Auto Writer Dee-Ann Durbin contributed to this report.
