You will speak in class, get tips for learning to listen and respond, you will have short exchanges, pronounce the difficult, role play, learn word order, expand your vocabulary and engage in specialized classes to gain better listening skills.

You know short and sometimes incomplete sentences in the present tense. At times you know you state things incorrectly, but gain confidence because the Spanish speaker “got” what you were trying to say. You may be hesitant or inaccurate, whereby frequent misunderstandings arise.

  6. Reprinted from Newsroom Panama The re-activation of four major fairs Boquete, La Chorrera, David, and Azuero was confirmed at the plenary session of the National Fairs Commission (Conafer), of the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA). Only the fully vaccinated will be allowed in. At the same meeting the trustees of the Boquete Flower and Coffee Fair confirmed that the event will take place from January 13 to 23, 2022. Roberto Guerra, president of Conafer, expressed that with effort and sacrifice the fair activities are resumed, but that it will begin with the largest activities, which will be a catalyst for other festivities. Samir Gozaine, secretary of the Tourism Cabinet, explained that other verification systems will have to be integrated before the fair activities, such as the QR system, having AIG staff available at the ticket offices of the fair events. Meanwhile, he said that children under 12 may enter, but with their parents who must have the complete vaccination scheme. They will have to use masks when they move around the facilities, they can only be removed to eat or drink some type of drink. Luis Oliva, director of the AIG, indicated that it is important to control access to fairs with the QR code. "We are going to put a stand at each fair authorized by the Ministry of Health, to help people who attend with the QR code and we can train the staff of each fair with this entry system," he said. The Ministries of Health and Agricultural Development will coordinate the biosecurity measures to be adopted for the development of these events with the fair boards.
  7. Reprinted from the Panama Perspective by Tom Brymer Officials stopped more than 1.7 million migrants on our southern border during the 2021 fiscal year, which ended in September, according to Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) data. The Washington Post reports illegal crossings began rising last year but skyrocketed in the months after President Biden took office. Agents with the CBP also arrested the highest number of migrants since 1986, taking more than 200,000 into custody in July and August alone. And Biden’s nominee for the head of the CBP Calls Situation at Border a ‘Significant Challenge,’ but Not a Crisis” Hah!!! In the fiscal years between 2012 and 2020, border arrests averaged about 540,000. The 2021 figure was more than three times that amount and the second-highest annual total ever recorded, according to the newspaper. Of the 1.7 million detained during the 2021 fiscal year, 61 percent were expelled under Title 42, the CBP data shows. Governors Call Out Biden Admin for Abandoning Americans Who Live on Border Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and other Republican governors have blamed Biden for the humanitarian crisis and chaos at the border. “We’re seeing the highest number of cross border crossings and it’s all because of the catastrophic open border policies by the Biden administration,” Abbott told Fox News. He added that the Biden administration “completely abandoned” ranchers, residents in his state, and “all the people who live on the border.” As CBN News reported earlier this month, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds was among 10 Republican governors who visited the U.S. – Mexico border, unveiling a 10-point plan to end Biden’s immigration crisis at the nation’s southern border by stopping the flow of illegal immigrants. When asked if the trip was more about politics than confronting immigration issues, Iowa Gov. Reynolds replied, “No it’s not a political stunt.” “This is the real thing. Biden owns this,” she said. “This is a self-inflicted crisis. He overturned all the policies that worked.” On Tuesday, lawmakers pressed President Biden’s nominee to head the CBP to call the situation “a crisis.” Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus admitted it’s a “significant challenge” and pledged to humanely enforce immigration laws if he’s approved. He also said he’s open to completing parts of the border wall still unfinished after President Biden halted construction Are Terrorists Among the Illegal Migrants? Meanwhile, one Texas congressman is warning terrorists could pass through our porous defenses. U.S. Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) recently told Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, about a conversation he had recently with Panama’s foreign minister. “She visits with me. She sits down, she goes, ‘There are over 100,000 migrants coming through Panama on their way to the U.S.,'” Gonzales recalled. “And we started talking about that, but I asked her one specific question. ‘Have you caught anybody on the terrorist watch list? She goes, ‘Funny you ask that Tony because in Panama we do biometrics and we have apprehended 52 people that are associated with al Qaeda.'” A record number of migrants from Haiti also entered the U.S. over the summer, trying to escape the ongoing poverty, crime, and political instability in their home country. Last week, the Biden administration announced it plans to reinstate a Trump-era border policy next month to make asylum-seekers wait in Mexico for hearings in U.S. immigration court, complying with a judge’s order. However, it hinges on the approval of the Mexican government, which has raised concerns that U.S. officials are working on. Mexico wants cases to generally conclude within six months and ensure that asylum-seekers have timely and accurate information about hearing dates and times and better access to legal counsel. U.S. Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas ended the policy in June after an internal review, saying it achieved “mixed effectiveness.” As CBN News reported, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the policy to be reinstated in August saying the Biden administration likely violated federal law in trying to end a Trump-era program that forces people to wait in Mexico while seeking asylum in the U.S. There also is nothing preventing the administration from trying again to end the program, formally called Migrant Protection Protocols.

For starters we have made a fresh batch of Chicken Pot Pies. These Pot pies are loaded with chicken, vegetables, southern creamy gravy, and wrapped in a delicious crispy crust. A real comfort food and hit’s the spot every time. Also, on our menu this week we have Boquete Chili, Saag Paneer, Deluxe and Creamy Mac & Cheese, Chinese Cashew Chicken, Mexican Chicken Burritos, Tex Mex Breakfast Burritos, Pumpkin Ravioli, Black Bean Soup, Mexican Quesadillas, Tortilla soup and LOTS more!!! We hope to have our Cajun chicken and andouille sausage gumbo as well as our New Orleans Red Beans & Sausage dish back on the menu soon. Lots of new items and local favorites on the horizon. Stay tuned! All of our entrees are frozen and are portioned for 1-2 adults. All you have to do is heat and eat😀😀😀 CRISPY TOP AND BOTTOM CHICKEN POT PIE REHEAT DIRECTIONS: If you would like a crispy top and bottom on your chicken pot pie follow these directions. Preheat your oven to 425f – 450f. Place a baking sheet in your oven and allow it to preheat. Once your oven and baking sheet has preheated, lightly spray a little oil on the surface of the baking sheet. Take your frozen chicken pot pie out of its container and place it on the greased baking sheet and bake for 50-60 minutes or until crust is golden brown and crispy. Enjoy (BONUS TIP) Adding an egg wash to the top of the chicken pot pie just before baking really gives it a wonderful color!! An egg wash is simply 1 egg whipped with a fork and brushed all over the top of your pot pie… If you are new in town and would like to be included in our weekly mailer, be sure to click this link to subscribe.

  19. Today, we were cleaning the room where Hope passed away, we left a nice, big, clean bed, bowls of water and food totally clean, we closed the door thinking, we don't have a dog that needs this area these days, we mean, a dog in really bad condition. So, Two hours later, we received a message with the pictures of this dog, so we couldn't say no. This dog is a male dog and his little puppy, both are very skinny and afraid but with patience, good food, a warm bed and a safe area, they will get better very soon. Please we need your help, they will need a complete blood test, maybe medicine, vitamins and we don't know what else.
