The promise fairy has ar rived...thereafter you will have another five years of them being broken. Okay, I will stop the sarcasm now. Not everyone is educated enough to understand the point of elections and its core functionality in terms of democracy. This is of course because the ANC has masterfully ensured our education sys temisflawedatbestforthepast20years. However, the rest of you political parties have done nothing constructive to resolve this either. Anyway, my point. You all make far too much of money for the paltry contributions to these small communities. The combination of politi

Golf GTE off to GENEVA
Volkswagen gives a sneak peek of its new electric GTI, the Golf GTE, headed for the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show
CCORDINGtoVW:“TheGolfGTEisanew plug-in hybrid version of the multiaward-winning Golf hatchback that combines the benefits of electric mobility with the dynamics of a Golf GTI.” The name of the Golf GTE reflects its position in the line-up alongside the iconic petrol-powered GTI and the diesel GTD - Where ‘GT’ stands for ‘Gran Tourismo’, ‘I’ for ‘Injection’, ‘D’ for Diesel and ‘E’ for Electricity.
The battery weighs 120kg, giving the GTE a total kerbweight of 1 520kg. The GTE uses a six-speed DSG with a tripleclutch system specially developed for hybrids. Theelectricmotorisintegratedintothegearbox housing, while further hybrid components include power electronics and a charger. An electro-mechanical brake servo and an electric air-conditioning compressor make for energyefficient braking and air conditioning.
POWER The Golf GTE is driven by two engines (a 1.4litre TSI petrol and an electric motor, for a total output of 150kW/350Nm. The electric motor enables the GTE to reach speeds of 130km/h, while the TSI is capable of rocketing the hatchback from 0-100km/h in 7.6 seconds to a top speed of 217km/h. Fuel consumption is rated at a claimed 1.5 litres/100km with emissions of 35g/km and a driving range of around 933km between refuels. In electric mode, the Golf GTE can travel up to 50km. The 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged in approximately three and a half hours from a domestic mains outlet or two and a half hours from a domestic wallbox.

Ngikhathazwa abantu abathanda ukuzikhukhumeza. Ngiyathanda ukuhlala nabantu abahlukahlukene. Angikhethi bala lamuntu. Angiyi ngokuthi umuntu uphetheni esandleni kodwa isizathu sami ukuthi ngifunde okuningi kubo bonke abantu. Kunalento ethanda ukuba nzima futhi engingayazi nokuthi isukaphi. Ngizobhekisa kakhulu kwabansundu ngoba ngiyazi ukuthi ngizokhuluma ngizwakale. Ngihlushwa yilolu daba lokuzikhukhumeza noma lokuziphakamisa. Umuntu unele athole isikhundla esingconywana emsebenzini noma emphakathini umbone esehambela phezulu. Angazi kuke kuthini emqondweni womuntu uma esebukela abanye abantu phansi enze sengathi uthole isikhundla sokuba ngumengali wezwe lonke, ekubeni
kwasayena uMnuz Jacob Zuma engaziphakamisi. Ubone umuntu wakhona engasakwazi ngisho ukubingelela, kodwa ebe ehlala nabanye abasebenzi edla nabo, encokola nabo, kodwa nje inkinga iqale uma esenyuselwe esikhundleni esithe thuthu. Omunye uze ahambele phezulu, abanye abantu ababukise okwamanzi okupheka uphuthu. Lomkhuba ufana nse nomuntu okuthi kade ehlalisene kahle nomphakathijikeleleelokishini,aneleabe nemaliaqaleukubanehlolokukhetha ubhontshisi. Lapho-ke usuke engasathintwa esenemali edida usathane. La ‘majita’ akhule nawo elokshini, angabe esazihlanganisa nawo ngoba usehlala esilungwini, usehamba ngezimoto eziphambili. Anginayo inkinga nomuntu ohlala esilungwini ngoba uhulumeni wentando yeningi wavula amathuba
Bayakuphika olokuwotawotana eduze kwedlinza lesilo kwadukuza
okuthi umuntu ahlale noma yikuphi lapho ethanda khona, aphile impilo ayithandayo, inqobo nje uma enamandla. Inselelo iba sekuzithwaleni komuntu, ajike ngokuphazima kweso, kujike ngisho nendlela akhuluma ngayo. Uma evakashele elokishini angabe esahlala ngisho nama ‘jita’ akhula ehlala nawo. Usekhuluma ulimi olukhombisa ukuthi yena unemali, usecwasa kwasani ngisho nendlela ‘amajita’ agqoka ngayo, akhohlwe ukuthi naye zolo lokhu, ubezishayela ngesikhindi nophaqa. Uyena lo obeziphuzela unemenayidi osebhodleleni ngomlomo kungabindaba zalutho, kodwa manje useziphuzela ikani lejuice nge ‘straw’ uma eselokishini. Ngiyaninxusa bantu bakithi, ake sishintshe indlela esenza ngayo. Angikholwa ukuthi iyona ndlela okhokho bethu abasifundisa ngayo le. Ngisho nomlungu
