first_imgLaurie Hamelin APTN National NewsA traditional Sturgeon Nose canoe maker from British Columbia is passing his knowledge on so his art doesn’t get lost.Wayne Louie was in Vancouver at the Kanata Festival building a seven-foot canoe.“Growing up on the flats of the lower Kootenays helped shape my life,” said Louie who is from the Ktunaxa Nation. “And watching all the elders do their canoes, my grandma was my mentor. I watched her, studied her, learned everything from her.”Louis explained that the work behind building a canoe is all based on science.“It’s all waterproof at the end of the day, it’s made out of western maple for the ribs, the slats, it’s all tied together by bitter cherry bark and cedar roots. White pine is the wood that goes on the frame, and what is so unique about the white pine is that it seals itself as it is curing, it becomes waterproof. And everything is built like my ancestors, there are no nails, no screws, no wire, no foreign material,” said Louie.lhamelin@aptn.calast_img read more

A unique partnership formally connecting a community and a university was officially launched Tuesday afternoon.Officials from Brock University and the Town of Lincoln launched the Brock-Lincoln Living Lab at an event at Vineland Estates Winery, kicking off a long-term relationship that will benefit current and future students at the University along with current and future residents in the southern Ontario town.Lincoln Mayor Sandra Easton listens as Brock University President Gervan Fearon speaks Tuesday.Brock and Lincoln signed a Memorandum of Understanding in February with the goal of creating opportunities for students and advancing the Town’s overall development. The Brock-Lincoln Living Lab that was launched Tuesday will focus on addressing specific local needs around community sustainability and well-being. Brock faculty and students will contribute to the Living Lab’s work through their research and the partnership offers a conduit for experiential education that extends curriculum into the community.The Brock-Lincoln Living Lab will provide real benefits to the community of Lincoln and to the Brock community by leveraging the resources, capacities and talents of both communities.“The relationship between Brock and the Town of Lincoln is blossoming and represents a wonderful example of how collaboration can benefit everyone,” said Brock University President Gervan Fearon. “Brock is a comprehensive university with a clear mission to serve local communities and the announcement today directly speaks to this mission.”Town of Lincoln Mayor Sandra Easton said the partnership is an important step in the Town’s growth.“The development of the Living Lab further demonstrates a greater Brock presence in our community, meeting one of Council’s goals this term,” she said. “The benefits of this co-operative venture are vast. With access to research specific to our community, we are better able to guide policy development and decision making.”The partnership with the Town of Lincoln is through Brock’s Environmental Sustainability Research Centre. Director Ryan Plummer said the Living Lab will enrich the experience of students studying in the Sustainability Science and Society program, as well as others taking courses in environmental sustainability.Lincoln Mayor Sandra Easton listens as ESRC Director Ryan Plummer speaks Tuesday.“These direct experiences complement classroom learning by students and offer powerful benefits of situating learning in the community, bridging the ‘theory-practice’ divide, and enriching understanding of complex problems,” he said.An example of the type of hands-on learning that will come out of the Living Lab started this summer when Brock Master of Sustainability co-op student Meghan Birbeck worked at the Town of Lincoln on initiatives such as sustainable development of the Town’s future transit system and other community programs.“We’re proud to be the first community in Niagara to establish this innovative approach and partnership that brings Brock to Lincoln,” said Michael Kirkopoulos, CAO, Town of Lincoln. “The Living Lab is a way to benefit from the research and work the University does to enhance the services we deliver to residents, businesses and visitors. I look forward to continuing to work with Brock in the future.”The Brock-Lincoln Living Lab is initially set to last five years. Among some of the more specific targets the two sides are working toward are:Conduct a needs assessment within the first year of operations identifying priorities, proposed activities and objectives to be achieved within the first five yearsHold public events each year pertaining to knowledge mobilization and community engagementEngage graduate and undergraduate students in co-operative education, course projects and independent research projectsInitiate research projects by Brock facultyExplore and pursue mutually beneficial opportunities of shared interest such as grant proposals and community forumsPromote the Living Lab locally and develop networks nationally and internationallySupport Lincoln in following other national or international initiatives that can help promote community sustainability and are in line with the spirit of the Living Lab read more

first_imgLes “recycleurs” de la décharge géante de Mexico bientôt au chômagePlus de 4.500 Mexicains vivent grâce aux ordures de la plus grande décharge à ciel ouvert du pays. Mais pour respecter les nouvelles normes environnementales, le gouvernement a décidé de fermer la décharge.La décharge du Bordo Poniente ne sera bientôt plus, le gouvernement mexicain a décidé de la fermer pour respecter les nouvelles normes environnementales. Cette déchetterie située à la périphérie de Mexico récupère une bonne partie des 7.500 tonnes d’ordures ménagères quotidiennes que génèrent les 9 millions d’habitants de la capitale mexicaine. Mais si la fermeture de la décharge est une bonne chose d’un point de vue écologique, elle est difficile à vivre et à comprendre pour les “pepenadores”, qui trient et récupèrent différents matériaux pour les revendre à des entreprises de recyclage. En effet, il s’agit là de leur unique source de revenus. Or, ils estiment que “Mexico est une très grande ville, les ordures ménagères ne vont pas s’arrêter du jour au lendemain”, comme le souligne Pablo Tellez, l’un des trois représentants des recycleurs. “Tout ce que l’on demande au gouvernement c’est [ … ] qu’il nous laisse travailler” a-t-il expliqué à l’AFP. Il poursuit, “nous vivons grâce aux ordures. La décharge du Bordo Poniente, c’est toute notre vie. Nous travaillons ici afin de nous offrir une maison, une voiture, tout ce dont on a besoin, mais surtout pour envoyer nos enfants à l’école”.La décharge du Bordo Poniente s’étend sur 450 hectares sur lesquels s’entassent des montagnes d’ordures hautes de 17 mètres. Sur le site, près de 4.500 Mexicains trient les déchets en famille, femmes et enfants compris. Gloria, mère célibataire de 54 ans, y travaille depuis 40 ans avec ses trois garçons. Lorsqu’elle trie, elle disparaît sous les ordures et son pull violet vire au noir en quelques minutes. Les recycleurs, travaillent sans masque de protection ni gants. Chacun a sa spécialité : certains recherchent le métal, d’autres le papier ou les bouteilles en plastique. Des matières premières qu’ils revendent à des intermédiaires à des prix très bas. “Je travaille 12 heures par jour et je peux gagner jusqu’à 800 pesos par semaine [environ 47 euros], bien sûr tout dépend du type de matériel que je récupère”, détaille Gloria.Un stockage d’ordures devenu chaotique À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Pour le sociologue Hector Castillo, la fermeture du Bordo Poniente s’explique par la nécessité pour le gouvernement fédéral du Mexique “de respecter les normes environnementales en vigueur”. Comme le justifiait le maire de Mexico lors de l’annonce de la fermeture définitive de la décharge, fin 2011 cette action était l’une des plus importantes afin de diminuer les émissions de méthane, un gaz à effet de serre. Cependant, le gouvernement n’a pas de plan B. “Il est très difficile aujourd’hui de trouver un autre endroit dans la ville de Mexico où l’on puisse décharger les ordures ménagères”, explique Hector Castillo. Du coup, des décharges sauvages apparaissent ça et là, parfois dans certains quartiers, monuments et parcs de Mexico. Le stockage des ordures est ainsi devenu chaotique dans la capitale. Toutefois, si elle est désormais officiellement fermée, la déchetterie du Bordo Poniente continue d’être régulièrement et illégalement alimentée chaque jour par plusieurs camions et les “pepenadores” ont encore plusieurs mois de travail devant eux. Le 23 janvier 2012 à 15:46 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Pier is under construction and should be reopened by the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day.“This is a landmark. This pier represents who we are as a community. Generations of people have memories of this pier and we need to make sure it’s open for future generations,” said San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer.The pier was ripped apart during a powerful winter storm with 15-foot waves. Not only the railings and benches, but water, sewer and electric lines were torn apart.“Today is day one of the project to rebuild and it should be open for the busy summer season,” said Johnnie Perkins, Deputy Chief Operations Officer.But this will be a “two-part” fix. Short term and long term.“I can’t stress enough how important this is. We have hired engineers to look at the long term strength of the pier, it won’t happen overnight, but it needs to happen,” said Mayor Faulconer.Until then, the short term fix will cost taxpayers about $430,000. Some would says that’s a small investment, considering the importance of the “longest concrete pier on the West Coast.”Be on the lookout for colorful balloons and a fancy ribbon cutting on Memorial Day.

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Apple is asking weekly questions to the three candidates running for the Wilmington/Tewksbury State Representative seat (19th Middlesex).Below, in his own words, is the response to one of this week’s questions from candidate Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury).#3) Can you highlight some of the life experiences you’ve had that have prepared you to be our next State Representative? Should a candidate’s age or home ownership status matter to voters?I have had many great experiences that have allowed to fully and confidently put me in the running for our next State Representative, and I am extremely grateful for them all. As so many voters have heard before, and many of the residents know me from, I served as Representative Miceli’s legislative aide and staff director for many years. In fact, I began interning for Representative Miceli since 2008, where I was tasked with focusing on constituent issues. There I helped house veterans, research insurance issues, helped people find jobs within the state and private sector, and more. I was hooked, which is why I continued to dedicate myself to my job when Representative Miceli hired me into his office years later. I was tasked with crafting legislation, such as the bill that established a holiday honoring first responders such as police, fire, and EMT’s. I guided, wrote letters of support, and even testified on bills of importance to the district and the state, and I was tasked each and every year I worked for Jim Miceli in ensuring that money for Tewksbury and Wilmington projects was included in the budget. This included working with our school committees in funding the Best Buddy/Camp Pohelo program, securing emergency repair grants, and providing all the research needed to keep the Tewksbury State Hospital. In addition to working in the office, during my collegiate years I worked with several student groups including proposing a way to improve college student health insurance while lowering the costs (with no cost increase to companies or universities, a true win), working with the town of Amherst to dissuade disruptive student parties through community engagement, and working with the school administration to overhaul the multi-million dollar laundry services on campus. While these issues pale in comparison to the work of a State Representative, I have never turned away from the opportunity to make things better than I found them.In addition to this public sector experience, I have worked in the private sector as well. During my college years I worked in a call center as a large-scale catering adviser, food service employee, and student accountant. Following graduation I worked in the retail industry for the famous Abercrombie and Fitch chain, while interning still, where I was not just tasked with good customer service, but helping to ensure smooth operations of a multi-million dollar store.Some folks are surprised that I am younger when they meet me, quite often on the phone they imagined someone older than I was, but age is not an issue. I am coming up on 30 shortly, and many people have done far more extraordinary things than I ever have done by my age. I have taken that phone call from the worried parent, homeless veteran, or hungry resident and gotten positive results. I have found dozens of detox beds for folks older than me, helped secure special needs education for those younger, and provided information for elected officials on all levels of government. What matters is that I am the only candidate who has any exposure and experience to Beacon Hill. I have the local knowledge as a life-long resident, the know how, and I know who to call when Tewksbury loses power, or Wilmington needs someone to get the Butter’s Row Bridge project back on track. Rather than talk about age, home ownership, or who is related to who I would rather talk about the issues and how we can get them done together, and how I have the dedication and knowledge to do so.(NOTE: Do you have a question for the candidates? Email and it may be asked in a future Q&A or in a debate.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter. Follow Wilmington Apple on Instagram.

I have taken off my jeans and had doing the entire fitting in my underwear. And she has worn my jeans and next I walked out in them.” And Katrina, who was sitting next to Anaita on the couch, was seen sarcastically nodding while her friend described what transpired that day.In an attempt to defend herself, Katrina then said, “I am an anywhere shopper. Looking at you, I am shopping. So basically, I borrow for keeps.”Watch the video here: last_img read more

Ever since its first season, the show has garnered massive TRPs and immense fan following from the audience. And with Salman Khan coming on board, the show has gained even more prominence.We should have expected something different when Salman decided to come onboard and this season saw some of the unique pairings of celebs who had broken up on an ugly note. And if that wasn’t enough to pique our interest. Here’s one more surprise from Salman Khan.As per reports, Salman has been planning to bring the female winner of the show onboard his Dabangg 3 in a special dance number. Yes, you read that right! A Pinkvilla report says, “He has already discussed the plans with his team.”Dance numbers in Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg franchise have always gained headlines. From Malaika Arora in ‘Munni Badnaam’ to Kareena Kapoor in ‘Fevicol Se’; the item numbers in the Dabangg franchise always creates a buzz.Recently, on being asked whether she is a part of Dabangg 3, Malaika had said, “No my dear, I am not involved with the film. Everyone involved with the project has moved on and I only wish each and everyone all the best for the venture.”A couple of days ago, Arbaaz Khan had rubbished the rumours of approaching Kareena Kapoor Khan for an item number in his upcoming production Dabangg 3 featuring Salman Khan in the lead.

first_img July is almost always one of the driest gaming months. Most developers tend to avoid the first full month of summer like the plague. Thankfully, players will find plenty of notable titles to keep them indoors this July.There are heavy hitters like Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Wolfenstein: Youngblood for those seeking AAA titles. Those looking for massive time-sinks can gorge on games like Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, Fire Emblem: Three House, and Dragon Quest Builders 2. There’s a little bit of everything for all types of preferences.Wolfenstein: YoungbloodPlatform: PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox OneRelease date: July 26Bethesda’s recent Wolfenstein games offer some of the best FPS action on the market. As such, it’s great to see a spinoff title drop so soon after the last main game, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Wolfenstein: Youngblood focuses on the daughters of William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, who are on a mission to find their father. Like the last two Wolfenstein games, this title takes place in an alternate Earth where the Nazis won World War II. The fun part is this game is set in the 1980’s of that reality. That means you can expect familiar 80’s tropes filtered through this unique setting. As a child of the 80’s and of alternate reality stories, I expect to have a great time with Wolfenstein: Youngblood.Pre-order Wolfenstein: Youngblood on AmazonMarvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black OrderPlatform: Nintendo SwitchRelease date: July 19With the recent success of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, now is the perfect time for a new Marvel Ultimate Alliance title. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is a Nintendo Switch exclusive that borrows heavily from the films. It has many of the characters folks have come to love. Yet, it doesn’t adhere to any movie or comic plot. You can even enjoy it if it’s your first Ultimate Alliance game. We’ve gone an entire generation without a new Ultimate Alliance. It’s awesome to finally have a new installment.Pre-order Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order on AmazonFire Emblem: Three HousesPlatform: Nintendo SwitchRelease date: July 26Fire Emblem titles have always released on handhelds but that is about to change with Fire Emblem: Three Houses. This Nintendo Switch exclusive is the first entry in the series users can play on an HDTV. Since it is a Switch title, players can also take it on the go. Like previous installments, Fire Emblem: Three Houses features grid-based tactical RPG gameplay and a deep story. With three different factions to play as, players are looking at hundreds of hours of entertainment. I’ve never played a Fire Emblem game so I may give Three Houses a shot.Pre-order Fire Emblem: Three Houses on AmazonFinal Fantasy XIV: ShadowbringersPlatform: Mac, PC, PS4Release date: July 02Final Fantasy XIV’s success is remarkable considering its disastrous launch. Square-Enix used a Phoenix Down on the title six years ago and it has remained one of the most popular MMOs out there. Shadowbringers is the game’s third expansion. It includes new jobs, player races, Beast Tribes and Primals, an increased level cap, and more. This expansion isn’t trying to remake the wheel. It is doing more of what fans have come to expect.

In this latest expansion, players can take a virtual vacation to an island paradise they have full control over.

They also explore a massive world full of dangerous monsters. This entry introduces co-op gameplay, allowing friends to build and kick monster butt together. If you’re looking for a more polished Minecraft experience with a healthy dose of RPG gameplay, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is just what you’re looking for.Pre-order Dragon Quest Builders 2 on AmazonKill la Kill – IfPlatform: PS4, SwitchRelease date: July 26I like anime as much as anyone, but I tend to avoid anime-based titles. The fun of the original is almost always lost when turned into a game. With that said, I am keeping an eye on Kill la Kill – If for the same reason I watched Dragon Ball FighterZ: Arc System Works. The studio develops exceptional fighting games with equally impressive graphics. Kill la Kill – If looks like the anime in video game form. Interestingly, this title is less of a traditional fighter than it is a brawler. I’m actually not a fan of brawlers, but this is Arc System Works so I’m willing to give it a try.Pre-order Kill la Kill: If on AmazonBlazing ChromePlatform: PCRelease date: July 11Blazing Chrome is a love letter to Contra. It features the same side-scrolling 2D action that made Konami’s series a classic. In fact, it looks more like Contra than the recently revealed Contra: Rogue Corps. Blazing Chrome releases just a month after Konami dropped the Contra Anniversary Collection. Because of that, some may find its existence unnecessary. Why play a Contra-like game when one can play the real deal? I understand that sentiment, but I’d counter by saying Blazing Chrome is a new experience. Contra III is amazing, but you’ve already played it a million times. I know I’ll check out Blazing Chrome to see how well it captures the old Contra magic and to check out what new elements it introduces.Pre-order Blazing Chrome on SteamBeyond: Two SoulsPlatform: PC (Epic Games Store)Release date: July 22Former PlayStation 3 exclusive, Beyond: Two Souls, makes its way to PC this month. Like Heavy Rain before it, the game takes advantage of PC hardware and delivers improved visuals. Also like Heavy Rain, it is a fairly faithful port. Don’t expect much in the way of new features. Though I personally didn’t find Beyond: Two Souls as good as Heavy Rain or Detroit: Beyond Human, it had an interesting enough premise that kept my attention. I’m not particularly interested in revisiting this title, but it’s cool that others can experience it on PC for the first time. Also, it has Willem Dafoe, which is a big selling point as far as I’m concerned.Pre-order Beyond: Two Souls on the Epic Games StoreMore on Are the Games Your Should Check Out in June 2019These Are the Games You Should Check Out in May 2019These Are the Games You Should Check Out in April 2019 Stay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: The body of a 58-year-old person was found in front of an under-construction building at Joyrampur Jala Road under Parnasree police station in Behala on Monday morning. The person was rushed to the nearby Vidyasagar Hospital, where he was declared brought dead.According to police sources, the deceased, identified as Shyamal Krishna Hazra, was a central government employee who worked with All India Radio. “We are not too sure whether the fall was accidental or the person had jumped to death. The matter is being investigated,” an officer at Parnasree police station said. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe man had ventured out of his residence at around 9.30 am and climbed up to the roof of the second floor of the under-construction building a few metres away.Passers-by had found him standing on the roof and some had even advised him to come down when they found him sitting dangerously close to the edge at one side of the roof, with his legs hanging downwards. However, he did not pay heed to the warnings.Sleuths investigating the incident informed that Hazra had been living in his Parnasree residence with his octogenarian mother and a sister for more than 20 years. He was married but his wife had left him when their child was two-years-old.He was reportedly suffering from depression, which had reached its pinnacle after his mother recently suffered a fall and broke her leg, thereby becoming bedridden. “He had been keeping to himself and would hardly talk with any of his neighbours for the last few years,” a person in the neighbourhood said.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: Despite strict vigilance and preventive measures undertaken by the Kolkata traffic police, overcrowded auto-rickshaws seemed to have gained a momentum in several pockets of the city.The auto-drivers plying in the routes of Rashbehari-Behala, Kadapara-Mechua, New Alipore-Tollygunge, Hazra-Khidderpore and others, have been reportedly plying more passengers than the permissible limit after dusk and also on the rainy days. “The auto-rickshaw drivers on the Hazra-Khidderpore route are always taking extra passengers at night to earn some extra penny. They are supposed to take four passengers at once, which is three in the back seat and one in the front seat. But instead the number often goes up to five or sometimes even six, which is two or three people in the front apart from the driver”, said Prasun Mukherjee, a daily commuter of the route. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseWhile another passenger, Payal Dey who travels on the Rashbehari-Behala route said, “Overloading has become a menace for daily passengers like us. We are compelled to sit uncomfortably on the front seat with one half of our body almost dangling outside the auto and with one hand clutching the metal handle, praying for our lives. When I am seated at the back, there are guards on both sides but at the back, even that is missing. It also becomes highly unsafe for children who often travel on this route as there are many schools en route.” Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataBut even the customers resort to travelling in such unsafe conditions due to infrequency of auto-rickshaws during the after-hours as well as during the rainy seasons. Mukherjee further said, “We are helpless in this case as the frequency of auto-rickshaws slowly decreases in the area as the clock strikes 9pm. So we are compelled to travel in such unsafe conditions. If we protest or tell them that we are going to complain to the police, they threaten us to get down from the auto or resort to bad behavior. In the end, we are hardly left with any option.” According to sources, there are multiple sections in the Motor Vehicle (MV) Act which are being used to prosecute the auto-rickshaw drivers for overloading and violating the registration norms. Deputy Commissioner (Traffic) of Kolkata police said, “If any such complaint comes to us, strict action is being taken.” Apart from ferrying more passengers than the permissible limit and the occasional irate behaviour, the auto-rickshaw drivers have also been reportedly resorting to hiking fares unnecessarily, using other routes to ply passengers as well as plying passengers through their own decided routes.last_img read more

first_imgEarlier this month, Robert Downey Jr. announced that he was forming a new organization, the Footprint Coalition, to apply technology to “clean up” the planet.  The coalition’s website is still scant on details, just a teaser for news to come. But regardless of how Downey Jr.’s grand plan shapes up, the idea is notable for its premise: New tools can and should be developed to understand and protect the natural world. I, for one, welcome these new conservation technologists.The moment demands it. There is a growing sense, which I first heard articulated by National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Enric Sala, that writing scientific papers about wildlife and wild places feels like writing the obituary for the planet. A recent UN report on biodiversity loss warned about the potential loss of more than 1,000,000 species around the world. Scientists are providing an increasingly thorough documentation of the dire state of the natural world, but that accounting has largely been met with inaction. We desperately need more tech companies, entrepreneurs, and engineers to adopt a 21st century conservation ethic.Luckily, Downey Jr. is certainly not the first to propose tech solutions for our environmental woes. Current conservation technology efforts span from big companies like Microsoft, who appointed a chief environmental officer and announced the $50 million AI for Earth program, to startups like Conservation X Labs, which is building a handheld DNA barcoding device to help combat the illegal wildlife trade. The list of technologies range from tree-planting drones to devices hoping to crack the communication barrier with whales and dolphins. Even big environmental NGOs like National Geographic and The Nature Conservancy are establishing technology labs and startup accelerators. It’s a diverse, decentralized, and growing effort.Technology has a role, and it’s more specific than activists like Downey may realize. Robots and nanotechnology alone will not solve our environmental problems. If we’ve learned any lesson in this digital age, it’s that technology and technologists should not be blindly trusted. If anything, the focus on “solving” a problem often creates more of a mess than the one it aspires to fix. The importance of engineers and technologists adopting a conservation ethic has much less to do with finding silver bullet solutions and much more about building infrastructure and enabling more people to take responsibility for their environmental impact.I’ve learned this first hand through our work at Sofar Ocean Technologies as we’ve undertaken the Science Exploration Education Initiative—a nonprofit effort we launched last year that aims to donate hundreds of Trident Underwater Drones to conservation and education projects around the world. We’ve sent out more than 200 Tridents thus far. To date, the recipients include people protecting seahorse habitats in Portugal and groups surveying remote coral reefs in the Indian Ocean. Each project is unique and inspiring. Tools like the Trident drones are an instigating catalyst for individual and community action. Creating a sense of agency is just as important as the technology.

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite More details have emerged of the high-speed N3 chase which saw a woman attempting to escape from police despite being shot at. The woman’s age has been confirmed by police as 21 years old.According to Estcourt police spokesperson Lt Colonel TM Mabaso, the woman had stopped at a petrol station in Warden.“The car was driven by a white female driver who put in R200’s worth of petrol at Warden,” said Lt Col Mabaso. The woman failed to pay the attendant and sped away.N3 Highway Patrol stationed at Harrismith spotted the vehicle on the N3 passing Harrismith at high speed, and gave chase.Highway Patrol chased the vehicle until the Tugela Plaza, but it had smashed through the tollgates 5 minutes earlier. More police and RTI units joined together in the chase. At one stage, six police and RTI vehicles were chasing the fleeing woman at over 180km/h.According to Lt Col Mabaso, the driver attempted to sideswipe an SAPS Highway Patrol van that had pulled up next to her. For the officer’s protection and the protection of other officers and members of the public, shots were fired at the vehicle in an attempt to stop it. Even when police shot out the tyres of the Nissan Micra, the driver did not stop or even slow down.A roadblock was set up near Estcourt, with the southbound lane of the N3 closed by police. With nowhere to go, the woman stopped the vehicle and police stormed the car.The woman was arrested for theft and detained in Estcourt before being sent back to Warden.She faces numerous other charges (she has no valid driver’s licence and the fact that the car was reported stolen).last_img read more
