AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 In the past, these customers made their choices on buying a van mainly from brochures and videotapes. Now, they can go to a showroom and test-drive all the models – just as the rest of us do when looking for a car. “In Southern California, they say if you don’t have a car you don’t fit in,” said Scott Deacon. “Well, a lot more people with limited mobility are fitting in and enjoying a higher quality of life now.” Deacon has spent more than 35 years in the Valley adapting vehicles for the physically disabled through his company Advanced Mobility Inc. Recently, he joined forces as a vice president with MobilityWorks, a national company building and selling wheelchair-adaptive vehicles. Nationally, more than 1 million people use a wheelchair to live fuller lives, and 12 million more can’t walk more than a few blocks without help. Yet, only 180,000 use an adaptive vehicle to get around and enjoy the lifestyle most people take for granted. That’s all starting to change. “This van is my legs,” said Bob D’Angelo after driving down from Somis to have his van serviced. While waiting, D’Angelo and his wife, Carolyn, check out the new models. At the top end there’s the Toyota XLE Limited, going for $62,000 with all the bells and whistles. And there’s the standard model in the $40,000 range, Dallara said. If that’s too expensive, she has used vans that start at $10,000. “If somebody drove a Lexus before, they’d probably want the XLE Limited,” she said. “I just had a librarian in her 50s buy one and have ghost flames painted on. You’d be surprised how many people want their vans customized.” The dealership sells 20 to 30 vans a month that come off the assembly line elsewhere with their floors lowered 10 inches, for wheelchair access, and computerized ramp systems installed. “We personalize them here with whatever the customer wants, including ghost flames,” Dallara said. In the service bay, June and Steve Dunn from Pasadena wait for repairs on the ramp door of the van they bought last year. “She’s the driver now because I don’t drive anymore,” said Steve, 82, looking over at his wife sitting in her wheelchair. “We still get out to restaurants and shows, still lead an active life. But without this van, we wouldn’t be able to. It’s been a godsend.” MobilityWorks is located at 7720 Sepulveda Blvd., in Van Nuys.

You’re all set! Julienne Dallara takes a quick look around the lot on Monday as she waits for customers to arrive at the San Fernando Valley’s newest vehicle dealership. She won’t have any problem recognizing them. They’ll be in wheelchairs, just as she is. Dallara, a paraplegic, sells wheelchair-adaptive vans at MobilityWorks on Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys. There’s a lot filled with new and used vans, an indoor showroom, a full-service bay, a lounge and even a service counter where a wheelchair-accessible van can be rented while the customer’s van is in the shop. In other words, it’s a typical dealership – but for people with disabilities.
A Carndonagh man who was ‘out of his mind with drink’ and grabbed a statute of Buddha before dropping his trousers at a Chinese takeaway has received a suspended jail sentence.Dermot McGuinness leaving court today. Pic by Northwest Newspix.Dermot McGuinness, 28, terrified staff at the Ocean Court restaurant at the Diamond in Carndonagh, Co Donegal on May 26th last. He appeared before Carndonagh District Court yesterday after undergoing a probation report for his behaviour.Inspector David Murphy told a previous court that gardai had found McGuinness “out of his mind with drink” inside the takeaway.The owner complained that McGuinness, from Churchtown in Carndonagh, had grabbed a statute of Buddha, was roaring and shouting and had just thrown a table over the counter.The Inspector said McGuinness had also taken his trousers down. He handed in still images taken from the takeaway’s CCTV cameras showing this and the other offences.McGuinness admitted being intoxicated in a public place, using threatening and abusive language and criminal damage.It took the inspector some time to go over McGuinness’s previous criminal record which included several convictions for assault.Solicitor Frank Dorrian told Judge Paul Kelly: “The recurring pattern with this man is one of alcohol abuse; he has little or no recollection of what went on during this incident. It is inexplicable as to what he was doing.“He had been drinking vodka around the clock at that time.”Mr Dorrian said however that McGuinness’s life had now changed. He was no longer drinking and was getting support at AA meetings.He was determined to continue with this new life and had brought €186 to court to pay for the damage done to the restaurant.Judge Kelly ordered a probation and community service report to monitor McGuinness’s progress and adjourned sentence until yesterday (TUES).Judge Kelly told McGuinness he had an atrocious record and asked him if he had viewed the pictures of himself dropping his trousers and jumping overt the counter of the restaurant.He sentenced McGuinness to 120 hours community service in lieu of six months in jail for threatening and abusive behaviour, was jailed for three months but had that suspended for a year for criminal damage and also fined his €100 for intoxication.EndsMAN WHO DROPPED TROUSERS BEFORE GRABBING HOLY STATUE GETS SUSPENDED JAIL TERM was last modified: January 20th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarndonaghcourtDermot McGuinnessdonegaldropped trouserstakeaway

Low-cost long-haul carrier, AirAsia X, has vowed to continue its expansion into Indonesia, despite botching the launch of its first service from Australia to Bali at the end of last year.The airline began notifying passengers of the service’s cancellation on Christmas Day – the day before the four-times-weekly A330 Melbourne-Denpasar service was to begin.A new division of AirAsia X, AirAsia Extra, has been formed to launch services from Indonesia to Asia-Pacific destinations – first from Bali and then from Jakarta. The venture had Indonesian government permission to operate the new Melbourne-Bali services, but it simply hoped that Australia would also rubber-stamp them in time for its proposed launch date.However, Air Asia Extra is using a completely new airline licence, its so-called air operator’s certificate, and Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has previously warned new airlines that their approvals can take six months or more.There are also unofficial reports that the crash of Indonesia AirAsia flight QZ8501 on December 28 – two days after the notional launch of AirAsia X flights from Melbourne to Bali – with the loss of 162 lives is weighing on the minds of Australian air safety inspectors.Internally, AirAsia X is in turmoil after losing more than $A100 million last year – nearly half of it on routes between the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur and Australian destinations.As AirAsia X began cutting back Australian services to stem losses, the seven-year-old airline’s founding chief executive Azran Osman Rani was sacked at the weekend.But new chief executive, Dendy Kurniawan, has reaffirmed the carrier’s strategy of building long-haul hubs in markets where its affiliate AirAsia’s subsidiaries have a domestic presence such as Indonesia (AirAsia Indonesia) and Thailand (Thai AirAsia).Even though the airline has had to indefinitely suspend the launch of Melbourne-Denpasar while CASA conducts its evaluation, Kurniawan, in answer to questions submitted by AirlineRatings.com, says the service will proceed.“Indonesia AirAsia X is still working closely with relevant authorities to get the required approvals in place,” he says. “The delay in receiving approval was unexpected. AirAsia has a good relationship with the relevant authorities and will continue to lodge applications as the group has done in the past.” Kurniawan says the airline is “very aware of and apologetic for the inconvenience this has caused guests”. “AirAsia has successfully been flying between Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur since late 2008,” he says. “Melbourne has been one of AirAsia X’s strongest performing routes in Australia and we’ve worked hard to build a good following. “We certainly aim to continue to provide a great affordable option between Australia and Asia and hope to resolve the Denpasar-Melbourne route as soon as possible.”CASA declines to provide details about AirAsia Extra’s case and won’t comment on reports that the crash of QZ8501 is material to its investigation.“CASA still needs to complete its assessment of safety and regulatory information relevant to that application and cannot make a decision about the matter until we have done so,” a spokesman says. “Indonesia AirAsia Extra (IAAX) is part of the AirAsia group, but it is not the same airline that operated the aircraft that crashed, QZ8501.”While it waits for its CASA permission, IAAX has begun a single weekly A330 service between Denpasar and Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, in preparation for the launch of four weekly flights from March 29 and says it will soon launch services from Jakarta.“Indonesia AirAsia X is currently in the final stages of preparing for a new route out of Jakarta and we expect to proceed shortly and will continue to look for other opportunities,” Kurniawan says.Meanwhile, the airline continues to develop its hub at Bangkok’s Don Muang airport. “Thai AirAsia X has been considering Australia closely whilst its initial focus has been on North Asia and existing AirAsia ports there,” Kurniawan says.
23 February 2012 Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has allocated an additional R10.2-billion to the state’s various job creation programmes, bringing their total allocation to R94-billion over the next three years. Delivering his National Budget speech to Parliament in Cape Town on Wednesday, Gordhan said job creation was central to government policy. The minister allocating an additional R4.8-billion to the state’s Expanded Public Works Programme, bringing its total allocation to R77.8-billion over the next three years. The community work programme received an additional R3.5-billion, giving it a total of R6.2-billion over the next three years, which will increase the number of people it employs to 332 000 in 2014/15, up from 90 000 in March 2011. “We will continue to increase allocations to this programme over time,” Gordhan said.Working for Water, Working on Fire The government’s Working for Water and Working on Fire programmes received an additional R1.1-billion, bringing their total three-year allocation to R7.7-billion, providing for a total of 135 000 jobs by 2014/15. The non-state sector job creation programme received an additional R345-million, bringing its three-year total to R1.1-billion, while the National Rural Youth Service Corps received an additional R200-million, bringing its total to R900-million over the next three years. An additional R300-million was added to the arts and culture budget for job creation. Jobs Fund: R1-billion committed so far Gordhan said the second application round for funding under the National Treasury’s Jobs Fund would be announced shortly. The fund, which is administered by the Development Bank of South Africa, attracted 2 500 applications in its first call for proposals, and project allocations of R1-billion have so far been committed, he said. Gordhan said the government’s proposed youth wage subsidy was under discussion at Nedlac, where labour had expressed some reservations. Source: BuaNews
12 April 2016Almost 100 young South Africans aged between 19 and 22 were asked by the Nelson Mandela Foundation how the Constitution and Bill of Rights affected their lives. Their answers are on display at the foundation in an exhibition entitled My Constitution.“I’m very pleased that young people are as outspoken about the Constitution as they are,” said Denis Goldberg, anti-apartheid activist and Rivonia trialist, who attended the launch on 17 March in Houghton, Johannesburg. “Some are for it, some are against, but they speak out with integrity.”See more:The foundation’s chief executive, Sello Hatang, said that 20 years after its adoption, he was still amazed at what a remarkable document the Constitution was. Its authors had vision and foresight regarding the kind of society they wanted to build.“The one question that bothers all of us, that should bother all of us is. are we still on course?”Issues youth raisedAccording to Hatang, the exhibition gives a voice to young South Africans and “forces us to listen to their experiences over the past 20 years of how the Constitution has worked for them but, more importantly, where the Constitution has failed our people”.Gugu Mthethwa, one of the young respondents, said: “My Constitution makes me more responsible and mindful of the things I do, how I act towards other people and how I would like to be treated.”Others, such as Balungile Radebe, raised critical questions. “We are the born-frees. Are we free from HIV? Are we free from ridiculous fees? Are we free from oppression? Are we free from poverty? No.”Clive Makhetha said: “I value freedom of association. I can be with people I want to be with at any time or place. I’m not restricted.”My Constitution exhibition: giving a voice to young South Africans https://t.co/0tIW5lQXcM #myconstitution pic.twitter.com/6MF9yvlNrJ— NelsonMandela (@NelsonMandela) March 20, 2016Constitution as post-conflict documentWandisa Phama, candidate attorney at the Centre for Applied Legal Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand, described the Constitution as beautiful when she spoke at the launch. “I think all of us in this room have a sense of the beauty of this Constitution and, as much as there are things that we can question, there are things that we can celebrate.“So when the foundation asked me to give a brief reflection of what it meant to be a young South African 21 years into our democracy, I thought to myself it meant a number of things – but what it means for each individual really depends on the lens that, as a person, you use to look at things.”Phama said each person’s lens was influenced by factors such as gender, socio-economic conditions, and race.Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, who served 10 years on Robben Island, explained that the Constitution was a “post-conflict” document. It was aimed at “moving us from a dark, dim and terrible past to an inclusive society that celebrates diversity”.The Constitution gave voice to every man and woman by giving them the right to take part in elections and decide who was in power.Quoting Frantz Fanon, the Afro-Caribbean philosopher, revolutionary and writer, Moseneke urged the youth “accomplish or betray their own mission”.“Mr Mandela and other great freedom fighters have not sold out,” he said. “They laid down beginnings that leave you with the clear mission to change your world within the values of a great Constitution.”This year marks the 20th anniversary of South Africa’s Constitution being signed into law.Source: Nelson Mandela Foundation
