Neal and Allison's curator insight, March 8, 2014 12:01 AM

There is a variety of religions in South America, but most of them are based upon Christianity.  Roman Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical, and Pentecostal are some of the main religions.  The Indigenous beliefs and practices have been involved with Christianity for many years, and it adds a diversity of different religion and culture to South America.  

Essential Question:  Despite the religious differences, do you think that there is conflict between the people with different opinions on different religions?  Why or why not?   

Zoe and Eleanor's curator insight, March 12, 2014 1:25 PM

This article gives insight on the religion of South America. It gives additional information on the origin of the religions. It also talks about the indigenous religion.

delaneygrimes-sarahmcfadyen's curator insight, March 12, 2014 11:26 PM

Over the years there have been many trends and cultural changes but the people that have stayed is our ancestors. they have influenced our daily life. they have created the many different religions that are scattered throughout South America. These religions are mainly sculpted around christianity. Religions here are changed and effected by the veiwpoints of the world. Influence has been a huge part of the this catagory.. the essential question is: why do some religions stay while other go through phases of popularity?

This scoop I labeled as religious because it talks about the USA's social history and costums. Thanksgiving is a custom from centuries ago, when pilgrims met the indians and had a feast.

The 11th World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Symposium (WTIS) will be held in Mexico from December 4-6, 2013. It will be co-hosted by ITU and the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT), Mexico's telecommunications and broadcasting regulator.

 

The WTIS, open to all the membership, is primarily targeted at those responsible for ICT statistics in relevant Ministries, regulatory agencies, telecommunication operating companies and national statistical offices. Experts interested in the subject of information society measurements are also welcome to attend the meeting.

 

"The WTIS 2013 will feature an international high-level panel debate on the topics of monitoring international development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and information and communication technologies (ICTs) for development goals, as well as national coordination," ITU said in a statement.

 

"The other sessions of the WTIS 2013 will address topics such as data quality assurance, measuring ICT and gender, and digital broadcasting. It will also discuss the topic of big data and evolving areas in the mobile sector, such the measurement of machine-to-machine connections and LTE-advanced services. Countries are invited to present their data collection and dissemination platforms during the event," it said.
