潘鉴成有求必应 昆市耆英交流乐


昆士市信义会爱邻堂昨(30)日举办长者生活系列讲座,邀南岸老人服务处亚裔专员潘鉴成阐述“长者,你是有用的”,鼓励耆英保持乐观心态,自助助人,积极参与社会服务,。
??????????? 潘鉴成从事老人服务多年,深知许多耆英一旦退休,活动大幅度减少,就开始觉得自己没用,继而染患忧郁症。为此,继去年六月参与筹办一场帮助社工及耆英认识这一问题的会议後,昨日再为信义会爱邻堂主持讲座,希望帮助更多耆英生活得更快乐。
??????????? 潘鉴成指出,尽管耆英们可能英文不好,但各人都有丰富生活经历,在繁忙的现代社会中,还常常成为协助子女、後辈照顾孙辈的最可靠人选,“家有一老,如有一宝”是再贴切不过的一句形容词。
??????????? 当然,那是指能把自己照顾得很好,还有能力为子女,家人及社会做贡献的耆英。潘鉴成建议耆英们,建立自己的社交圈,学会独立生活,学些基本的英语会话,以加强和孙儿辈的沟通能力,凡事从好的角度去形容,用和善的语气去沟通,以“我能为你做些什麽”的态度和家人及朋友打交道,就一定去到那儿都受欢迎。
他尤其鼓励耆英们申请入籍成为美国公民,多参加社区活动,做义工,分享自己的生活经验,既丰富自己的生活,又提高华人在美国人心目中的形象。
??????????? 需要帮忙的时候,记得中华耆英会、亚协服务中心,华乐堂等机构就行了。
??????????? 潘鉴成在讲座结束前,派发“金句”,还改编了张国荣的“金枝玉叶”一曲,即席演唱“一追再追,追踪一些生活最基本需要,原来早不缺少,ha,有了你,即使平凡却最重要“,以及张学友的”从此以後,无忧无求,故事平淡,但当中有你,已经足够“,来一鼓励耆英们,随时用这些金句醒自己,要生活得快乐。
??????????? 昨日有十几名长者出席,包括六十多岁的伍仁甫,丘美庄夫妇,八十多岁的陈德源等人。中华耆英会的丁慧明,联合保险公司的林女士等都出席与长者交流。
??????? 来美已三十多年的陈德源表示,虽然他已八十多岁,但身体健康,一点病痛也没,全因他一周三天参加广东音乐社的活动,还出海钓鱼,又跟孙子学会了用电脑上网,能查出帝女花的歌词,每天都忙得很。
信义会爱邻堂牧师伦永成表示,“长者有用“是该堂举办”长者生活讲座“系列的第二讲。下一次订九月廿七日,邀Care Giver公司主讲。该堂还将从九月六日起,每周五晚七到九点,举办英文圣经班,免费教人从圣经学英文。查详情可上网www.gnlcquincy.org,或洽617-653-3693
潘鉴成预告,十月五日早上十点,在昆市公共图书馆总馆,将有五机构合办的健康事宜“家庭资讯日”。

吕元荣与波城侨务荣誉职人员座谈

侨委会副委员长吕元荣828日晚和大倍投方案图片顿侨务荣誉职人员暨社团、中文学校代表座谈,慨言该会经费有限,盼侨胞发挥创意,做草根国民外交,称许动员企业家支援活动构想。
??????????? 这场座谈会,由侨委会副委员长吕元荣主持,驻倍投方案图片顿经文处正副处长洪慧珠,陈铭俊,倍投方案图片顿侨教中心主任郭大文,两名侨务委员陈家骅,马涤凡并列主席台。
??????????? 出席座谈的侨务荣誉职人员,包括都曾任倍投方案图片顿国民党常委的李伍绮莲,范纪琛等2名侨务谘询委员,庄纪华、许炳煌、游胜雄等3名侨务顾问,蒋宗壬、薛剑童、王竞芳、王月娥、李文成、殷尚坚、李小玲、石家孝、黎雯、张凤、陈式仪等11名侨务促进委员。另有十几名侨团负责人到会。
??????????? 出席者有不少提问、建议,对经费问题,尤其感慨。春田中文学校刘宗圣建议扩大利用宏观电视,宏观周刊等工具,辅助侨教;剑桥合唱团代表魏瑀娴吁请增派华文老师到海外支援,以掌握华语诠释权;许炳煌认为侨委会应简化各地办事处申报经费手续;北美艺术家协会黄镜明建议社区文化活动宜多团结、动员已退休人士;林展辉建议应加强利用台湾文化创意实力,以让让更多人知道台湾;或可在海外办台湾学校,陈绮怡建议考虑办些照顾自闭症的有特舒需要人士的服务等等。
??????????? 在八月一日接任副委员长一职以前,已在侨委会服务30多年的吕元荣坦言,侨委会一年约有12亿元经费,其中1.5亿元用於宏观周刊,宏观电视,约20%用於人事行政,剩下来能用於服务全球各地做侨胞的经费,不过2500万美元左右,实在很有限。
??????????? 吕元荣藉此解释,侨委会的资源、经费有限,希望侨界能多利用宏观电视、周刊及网站来获取台湾及世界各地侨情资讯。侨教部份,侨委会采取师资在地化做法,尽量在当地培养老师。碍於经费少,签证麻烦,以及师资人才缺乏意愿,派老师到世界各地长驻执教的做法,并不可行。
??????????? 台大校友会副会长施心沛,新英格兰台湾青商会会长康丽雪这两名年轻人在会中指出,德国、日本在倍投方案图片顿都办有德国学校、日本学校,或许台湾也可藉作参考。吕元荣指出,侨委会做过调查,美国侨胞有意送子女回台湾,衔接台湾教学体系者不多,但泰北、缅甸等地区,侨委会提供有许多支援。
??????????? 中华艺术协会总监陈玉律探问,该会的舞蹈营聘有来自中国大陆的老师,是否无法获得经费补助的原因。吕元荣指出,关键重点应为各侨团所办活动,是否与侨委会的推广重点相符。
??????????? 在回应新任台湾同乡联谊会会长林展辉所提的以文化创意宣传台湾,殷尚坚与李小玲建议侨委会藉每年制作月历的设计来发挥上,吕元荣赞许表示,希望侨胞们能多提供意见。

BOSTON?-- Registration for the 2014 Boston Marathon will open on Monday, September 9, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. ET. The B.A.A. will use the same process to register qualified runners as it used in the 2012 and 2013 Marathons, allowing the fastest qualifiers to register first.

Registration will be held entirely online at?www.baa.org. The qualification window for the 2014 Boston Marathon began last year on September 22, 2012.

In addition, in cooperation with the?Commonwealth?of?Massachusetts?and the eight cities and towns along the Boston Marathon route, the B.A.A. has set the field size for the 2014 Boston Marathon at 36,000 official entrants.? The 118th?Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, April 21, 2014 and will mark the 29th?consecutive year that the event will have John Hancock Financial Services as its principal sponsor.

Registration will occur on a “rolling admission” schedule, beginning with the fastest qualifiers. On Monday, September 9, eligible runners who have met the qualifying standard for their age and gender by 20 minutes or more may register. On Wednesday, September 11 at 10:00 a.m. ET, if space remains, registration will open for those who have met their qualifying standard by 10 minutes or more. If space remains, registration will open on Friday, September 13 at 10:00 a.m. ET for those who have met their qualifying standard by five minutes or more. Registration will close on Saturday, September 14 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

If space remains after the first week of registration (Monday, September 9 through Saturday, September 14), then registration will re-open for all qualifiers from Monday, September 16 at 10:00 a.m. ET through Friday, September 20 at 5:00 p.m. ET. If space remains after this initial period, then on Monday, September 23 registration will re-open to anyone who meets the qualifying standards. Registration will remain open until the maximum field size is reached.

“The B.A.A. is aware of the significantly increased interest in registering for the 2014 Boston Marathon,” said B.A.A. Executive Director?Tom Grilk. “The rolling admission schedule will provide runners with the fastest qualifying times in their age and gender group the ability to have their entry accepted in an orderly and systematic manner.? We understand many marathoners and qualifiers want to run?Boston?in 2014, and we appreciate the support and patience that the running community has demonstrated because of the bombings that occurred this past Spring.”

The registration process ensures that the fastest qualifiers will be accepted first.? However, achieving one’s qualifying standard does not guarantee entry. Those who are the fastest among the pool of applicants in their age and gender group will be accepted.

The registration fee for the 2014 Boston Marathon for qualifiers is $175 USD for?United States?residents and $225 USD for international residents.

A special registration period for the 2013 Boston Marathon began on August 19 and concludes today (August 29 at 5:00 p.m. ET) for 2013 Boston Marathon starters who reached the half marathon checkpoint or later but did not have the opportunity to cross the finish line on?Boylston Street. Those 5624 runners were contacted by the B.A.A. via email; thus far, more than 4,500 entries have been received.

For the last several months, the B.A.A. has worked with state and municipal agencies and public safety officials to establish a field size of 36,000 entrants for the 2014 Boston Marathon. In 1996, the Centennial Boston Marathon had a field size of 38,708 entrants and 35,868 finishers.?"Interested runners have been remarkably respectful and cooperative as we worked towards what will be an important day in the history of the race, the sport and the City of?Boston,” said Grilk. “The B.A.A. offers special thanks and gratitude to the town, city and state officials for the cooperation and allowances needed to conduct a special race of this size and scope."

吕元荣拜会波城黄氏公所、中华公所


侨委会副委员长吕元荣昨(28)日拜会黄氏宗亲会,纽英仑中华公所,欢喜到见两机构都挂出青天白日满地红旗帜,听到黄君裕忆旧指出,中华公所过去几十年来都拥护他们的发言。
侨委会副委员长吕元荣表示,这次行程匆促,能够拜会的侨团有限,他日有机会再继续拜会。
昨日他拜会黄氏公所时,黄氏公所主席黄仁宇,黄光野,黄氏元老黄官羡、黄君裕,以及多名资深顾问,妇女部成员,不下廿,三十人出席欢迎,互相介绍,简短座谈。黄氏公所主席黄仁宇强调,大家都是中国人,一定互相帮助。
黄君裕指出,庆祝双十的游行,当年是中华公所发动举办的,游行队伍甚至长达十几条街。他发言时,既强调中华公所是侨社中的龙头老大,也质问为什麽侨教中心要搬到牛顿市去。
黄光野则表示,希望侨委会能协助本地侨社,多为华埠做些事,办些对侨社有用的服务。
同时也是中华公所主席的黄光野,在黄氏公所和中华公所时都表示,中华公所正在办理清扫华埠项目,九月份起每天派两人扫街,藉以还给华埠美丽容貌。
黄光野会後表示,中华公所迄今已收到华埠扫街捐款共约六千五百元。他在会中说明,收的捐款包括侨委会八百元,侨务委员马涤凡二百元,倍投方案图片顿国民党一百元。
昨日出席中华公所拜会活动,曾任华商经贸联谊总会总会长的游胜雄在郭大文以国语说明黄光野所提的吁请侨团、商铺慷慨捐款,支持扫街後,当场立刻慨捐二百五十元,引得郭大文笑说,讲国语有用。
吕元荣到中华公所拜会时,包括国民党常委王竞芳,倍投方案图片顿荣光会前任理事长殷尚坚,洪门致公堂主席司徒宗达,至德三德公所主席之一的曹品慈,华心中文学校校长潘慧如,曾任中华公所主席的黄国威,何远光,梁永基等,也有十几人到会。
吕元荣在黄氏公所时指出,侨委会和黄氏很有渊源,早年有个黄海龙驻倍投方案图片顿侨教中心当主任,曾任侨委会委员长的蒋孝严,夫人姓黄,现任侨委会委员长陈士魁的夫人也姓王。他日陈士魁到访倍投方案图片顿时,一定携眷祭祖。他还指出黄氏公所里的题字,是曾任台湾省主席的黄杰所题,可见黄氏公所和侨委会关系久远。
他到中华公所时,见到楼外的孔子像,透露当年担任侨委会委员长的毛松年十分推崇孔子,送出两尊孔子像到美国,其中一尊在纽约,另一尊不知是否倍投方案图片顿这尊。
