Pakistan school in Jeddah recalls Jinnah’s teachings

On the occasion of Pakistan’s founder, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah’s birth anniversary, Pakistan International School Jeddah-English Section organized a commemorative event in the school auditorium.
Students from all grade levels participated devotedly and reiterated their leader’s golden scruples of life in the form of speeches, presentations and skits.
The program commenced with the recitation of the Holy Qur’an, followed by the national anthems of both Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
The overwhelming performance of the senior school students, delineating some of the unusually inspiring aspects of Quaid’s life enthralled the audience.
They replicated the unforgettably stirring events of his life highlighting some of the attributes of his personality like honesty, integrity, punctuality, determination, devotion and charismatic disposition with due solemnity, sobriety and mature skills of acting and dialogue delivery.
Addressing the audience, Principal Adnan Nasir said, “The relevance of Quaid’s teachings and thought are as significant now as they were a century ago and will be applicable for all the generations to come. His golden principles of unity, faith and discipline depict his foresight and political acumen.”
He added, “Besides paying tribute to the great leader, it is a day to reiterate the resolve for reviving Quaid’s thoughts and move forward with his ideas. We must retrospect how much we have succeeded in achieving the highest objectives set by our great leader for which the state of Pakistan was created and must strive to make a positive difference toward our country’s prosperity on individual level.”

Genesis G70 arrives in the Middle East

Genesis has officially launched its compact G70 luxury sedan in Middle East markets, completing the brand’s core sedan lineup. Engineered as a dynamic car with strong appeal to younger customers and more enthusiastic drivers, the G70 joins the flagship G90 large sedan and mid-sized G80 and G80 Sport.

“Genesis has been very well received in the Middle East, and the Genesis G70 will be an exciting new chapter in our story,” said Altar Yilmaz, Genesis general manager for the Africa and Middle East region. “For many of our potential customers, this is the Genesis they have been waiting for.”

The arrival of the Genesis G70 in showrooms follows a previous display presentation at the Dubai International Motor Show in November 2017, where Genesis fielded a large number of inquiries about the car. With larger G80 and G90 models already growing a strong base of loyal customers, it is expected the compact model will add significantly to the brand’s appeal in the competitive Middle East luxury car market.

The G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s “Athletic Elegance” design identity. 

“The G70’s interior is configured to prioritize an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects simplicity, with an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry. A horizontal layout brings a sense of stability, with an intuitively laid-out switchgear and a comfortable, assertive sport steering wheel,” the carmaker said.

The G70 offers two powertrains in the Middle East region — a 3.3-liter V6 petrol turbo and 2.0-liter I4 petrol turbo.  The Lambda II 3.3-liter V6 turbo GDI engine is the heart of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, with 370 ps and maximum torque of 52.0 kg.m (510 N.m) 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 270 km/h.
