Keeping the roads safe and reporting dangerous drivers

Tag: 千花网

first_imgHave you ever narrowly avoided a traffic collision thanks to a dangerous maneuver by another driver? Watched someone driving in a way that puts other drivers, cyclists and pedestrians in danger? Suspected you were following an impaired driver? Reporting violations gives an officer the tools to act on your report and is always more effective when accompanied with three required pieces of information.1.       License plate of the vehicle (partial plates can be useful when combined with 2 & 3)- Advertisement -2.       Description of the vehicle (make, color, model) and if possible, description of the driver3.       Where you’re located and the direction of travel“While the RCMP and the police department in general kind of drives the bus of safety in the community, we need everybody on board helping us,” says Cpl Jodi Shelkie, adding “We really need the eyes and the reports of people out there on the road.”Advertisement Traffic complaints should be reported to the Fort St. John RCMP detachment at 250 787 8100, but Shelkie reminds drivers to first safely pull over before using your cell phone.  “If you have dust on your dashboard, I always say to people, write the license plate number in the dust so that it’s always there and you won’t forget it because it’s always hard to remember something like that,” explains Shelkie.  In the case of a suspected impaired driver who is still behind the wheel, don’t waste time and imminently call 911 with a license plate, description of vehicle, location where it was seen and the vehicle’s direction of travel.last_img read more

first_imgMIAMI — It is not easy to have patience in times of trouble, but in Thursday’s series finale against the Marlins, the Giants proved why it’s so valuable.The Giants believed Tyler Beede was capable of throwing quality innings in the big leagues. They believed a slumping Brandon Crawford was due for a big hit. And they believed that despite plenty of evidence suggesting otherwise, their miserable play of late would soon improve.At the end of a disastrous seven-game losing streak, all of that …last_img

first_img8 March 2012 “South Africa: Inspiring new ways”, the new slogan for championing the country locally and internationally, has been approved by the Cabinet following extensive development and consultation by Brand South Africa. Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane made the announcement on Thursday following the Cabinet’s fortnightly meeting in Cape Town on Wednesday. Brand South Africa, the organisation charged with marketing South Africa at home and abroad, will drive the popularisation of the new slogan, Chabane told reporters in Pretoria.Capturing the essence of the country Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola said the Cabinet’s approval represented “the culmination of many months of research into what thousands of ordinary South Africans believe captures the essence of our country. “As a country we continue to inspire both ourselves and the world with unique, new and better ways of overcoming our challenges,” Matola said in a statement on Thursday. “‘South Africa: Inspiring new ways’ is both a description of the best of our national character, our values and the fabric of our people. It is a challenge to all South Africans: to business, government and civil society to build on our reputation for inspiration and innovation.”New phase, new slogan South Africa’s previous pay-off line, “Alive with Possibility”, ran from 2003 through to the end of 2010 and Africa’s first Fifa World Cup, and reflected the country’s position as the most-developed African economy spearheading the emergence of the continent as the globe’s last great market. “The world saw the sense of the proposition,” Matola said, “and investors, businesses and tourists piled into the country – taking advantage of the possibilities. “Now, our country has moved to a different phase of its development.” SA was now an important regional power, Matola noted, with a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council and a member of the G20 and the BRICS group of nations. “South Africa has moved beyond possibility to delivery. Our delivery has necessitated a change in the brand positioning, to keep up with and lead the way that we are perceived by the world. It is for this reason that we have developed a new brand expression.”Championing SA at home and abroad Brand South Africa is best known locally for its Play Your Part active citizenship campaign, and its precursor, the hugely successful Football Fridays campaign that ran in the build-up to the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Internationally, Brand South Africa lobbies and networks extensively among global opinion leaders to shift perceptions about the country and the continent. Most recently, the organisation teamed up with London’s Financial Times to host a roundtable discussion on the future of mining in Africa at last month’s Mining Indaba in Cape Town. The month before that, Brand South Africa partnered with TIME Magazine in bringing global business and political leader together to discuss the role of Africa in the “Global Transformation” at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The organisation also regularly brings groups of international journalists to the country to give them exposure to South African government and business, experience local life and culture, and learn about the country’s latest technological developments.SA climbs in the brand rankings Its efforts have not gone unrewarded. In the latest release of the prestigious Anholt-GfK Roper Nation Brand Index, made in October, South Africa moved up one spot to 36th out of 50 countries measured, confirming the steady improvement in the country’s brand reputation. The index is based on an annual online survey conducted among respondents from 20 “panel” countries in which the 50 competing nations are ranked along six dimensions: tourism, culture, people, exports, governance, and investment/immigration. While expressing satisfaction with South Africa’s ranking, Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola pointed out that different branding indices tended to come to different conclusions. What mattered most for a nation brand was its “key differentiators”. For Brand South Africa, this meant continuing to focus on positioning the country more as a business destination and an attractive emerging market on the African continent, Matola said.

first_imgNagaland Home Minister Yanthungo Patton said he would request the Centre to sign a ceasefire agreement with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K), banned by the Home Ministry for attacks against security forces.NSCN-K patriarch S.S. Khaplang died earlier this month in Myanmar and it was under him that the outfit unilaterally abrogated ceasefire in March 2015, leading to multiple violent incidents, including the attack on an Army convoy on June 4 in Manipur’s Chandel district where 18 Army men were killed.Mr. Patton told The Hindu on phone that they (Nagaland government) contacted Mr. Khaplang in the “last part of 2015” to convince him to come for talks.“We contacted the NSCN-K earlier also, around one-and-a-half-years back, but the agreement could not get through. We were in touch with Khaplang, but since he is no more, we need to start afresh. We are in touch with the new leadership in Myanmar,” said Mr. Patton.The ruling Nagaland People’s Front (NPF) party in the State is an ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).The government signed a framework agreement with another Naga group, the NSCN-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) in August 2015 to look for a solution to the decades-old Naga insurgency. ‘They are with us’ Asked whether the proposal would impact the Centre’s agreement with the NSCN-IM, Mr. Patton said, “They are with us. The NSCN-IM also wants all Naga factions together and they would welcome the move once the NSCN-K joins the peace talks.”The NSCN-K operates from camps in neighbouring Myanmar and India has on several occasions asked the Myanmar government to take action against the insurgent groups there.“We understand that the Centre has banned them for five years. In the past also, we have shared our desire to initiate dialogue with the NSCN-K but after Mr. Khaplang’s death, we would re-initiate the process with Home Minister Rajnath Singh,” he said.Mr. Khaplang (77), a Hemi Naga from Myanmar, formed his own outfit in 1988 after he fell out with Isak Chisi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah, the other two Naga leaders who went on to form the NSCN-IM. NIA had declared a reward of ₹5 lakh for his arrest. Mr. Swu died of illness last year in Delhi.Naga outfits envisage a “Greater Nagalim” or a contiguous land for the Nagas covering the States of Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Myanmar.On June 12, Mr. Rajnath Singh constituted a panel to examine various methods to curb the misuse of free movement along the Myanmar border and said that “it was being misused by militants and trans-border criminals who occasionally entered India, committed crimes and escaped to their relatively safer hideouts”. India and Myanmar share an unfenced border of 1,643 km adjoining Arunachal Pradesh (520 km), Nagaland (215 km), Manipur (398 km) and Mizoram (510 km) and permit a ‘free movement’ regime up to 16 km across the border. Mr. Patton said he had opposed the move by the Centre to curb movement of people along the Myanmar border as it would impact the local ethos and culture of the Naga community.last_img read more

first_imgHouston players run our onto the field on game day.YouTube/UHAthleticsMany had high expectations for Tom Herman as head coach. As became very apparent this season, Herman was instrumental in turning Ohio State into an offensive juggernaut despite all kinds of injury issues at quarterback last season. I don’t know that anyone realistically thought Herman would elevate Houston to this level in just one year, though. At 12-1, with an AAC title under their belt, the Cougars are off to the Peach Bowl for a New Year’s Eve showdown with ACC powerhouse Florida State. Houston fans shouldn’t need any help getting excited for this one, but just in case, Houston put together a quick 30 second teaser trailer for the game, and it is quite epic.The Cougs and ‘Noles kick off in Atlanta at noon on December 31.last_img

first_imgCONKLIN, Alta. – Alberta’s Indigenous relations minister is apologizing after provincial fish and wildlife officers seized dozens of smoked fish from an annual Metis cultural camp.A statement issued by Richard Feehan over the weekend says the seizure happened near Conklin on Friday, only a day after Feehan says he himself visited the camp.The statement says fish and wildlife investigators responded to a call about an illegal net in Christina Lake, but didn’t find the net when they arrived.They did find the camp with about 30 people, who were smoking about 25 whitefish.Alberta requires people who fish with a net to have a Metis Domestic Fishing Licence.Two people were issued appearance notices for fishing without a licence and all of the fish were seized.“This was an unfortunate circumstance. I understand there may have been some issues with the licensing, but I think this situation could have been avoided,” Feehan said in the statement, which was issued late Saturday. “I commit that we will take steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”The statement said Feehan has personally apologized to Metis Local 193 president Shirley Tremblay and vice-president Ernie Desjarlais.A video of the incident has been posted to Facebook.Tremblay, who was at the camp when Feehan visited but who wasn’t there when the officers arrived, said she doesn’t fault the officers for coming to the camp and conducting an investigation.But she doesn’t think they needed to take the fish.“We didn’t want a riot or anything to occur. It was actually the vice president of the Metis local that helped put the fish in bags,” Tremblay said in an interview Sunday.“They took our food supply, or a portion of our food supply.”The statement from Feehan said the government will work with the community to ensure members have appropriate licences.The Conlkin Development Advisory Committee issued a statement Saturday about the incident, where it called the actions of the officers at the cultural camp “completely inappropriate” and “insensitive.”“It was a time for celebration that was severely tainted by the actions of but an ill-informed few,” the statement said.The group tweeted Sunday it accepts Feehan’s apology and hopes it expedites the creation of a Metis consultation and harvesting policy.Tremblay said the camp at Conklin has been going for about eight years, and includes other traditional Metis activities, such as drying meat and berries and beading.She said Feehan ate a meal when he visited the camp that included fish from the lake, pork hocks, potatoes and salads.According to the statement from Feehan, he enjoyed himself.“I had a great time at the camp and truly enjoyed meeting with the residents,” he said.“These types of cultural experiences are very important in preserving Metis culture and I wouldn’t want to see that experience ruined.”—by Rob Drinkwater in Edmontonlast_img read more
