Truck stolen, cars broken into in Waverly over weekend, sheriff says – Lincoln Journal Star

A pickup was stolen, a man was assaulted and vehicles were rummaged through early Saturday morning in Waverly, the Lancaster County sheriff said. 

Sheriff Terry Wagner said the events — which he didn’t definitively say were connected — started at about 2:40 a.m., when a window to a county-owned truck was shattered near 145th and Bailie streets. 

Thieves took a hard hat, reflective vest, gloves and other winter clothing items from that vehicle, Wagner said. 

Then, 17 minutes later, a woman told deputies her husband’s 2011 Toyota Tundra was stolen from their driveway near 149th and Folkstone streets. The keys were in the unlocked vehicle, Wagner said. 

A few blocks away, near 147th and Castlewood streets, Wagner said a man noticed someone near his house throwing an item into the bed of a Ford pickup.

After investigating further, the man found that two cars in his driveway had been rummaged through, and he saw another man wearing a black face mask walking away from the area. 

When the Waverly man confronted the masked individual, the Ford pickup returned, and the driver exited the vehicle and kicked the resident in the face before speeding away, Wagner said.

Basically, skew refers to the angled nature of the NASCAR Cup Series car. The front end looks like it’s pointing in a different direction than the car is actually going, which gives the whole thing a sort of crab-walk look. The rear axle is mounted on a skew when compared to the whole chassis. For…….


Is Norway the future of cars? – Kathimerini English Edition

The speed by which electric vehicles have taken over Norway has stunned even the cars’ enthusiasts. [Asya Demidova/The New York Times]

Last year, Norway reached a milestone. Only about 8% of new cars sold in the country ran purely on conventional gasoline or diesel fuel. Two-thirds of new cars sold were electric, and most of the rest were electric-and-gasoline hybrids.

For years, Norway has been the world leader in shifting away from traditional cars, thanks to government benefits that made electric vehicles far more affordable and offered extras like letting electric car owners skip some fees for parking and toll roads.

Still, electric car enthusiasts are stunne…….
