JAGUAR BROKE A WORLD RECORD WITH THIS TINY ELECTRIC BOAT

Jaguar’s battery-powered V20E boat just broke a maritime speed record.

The small and speedy boat was developed with racing experts over at Vector, as well as Williams Advanced Engineering, from which it borrowed the electric drivetrain’s components.

WORLD JAZZ STARS HEAD TO SOWETO

From Thursday, music lovers from all walks of life will be heading to the Soweto Theatre in Jabulani for the first Soweto International Jazz Festival.

Power of Women, Inspiration Night and Celebration of our Future are some of the themes that will define the celebration of the music forms loved in the township. The last one is particularly relevant, says organiser Nolan Baynes of International Arts Solutions, because the festival coincides with Youth Day.

As a result, the programme is fresh and genre-blurring. Visitors will be jamming along to local artists, including Lady Zamar, who took the gong for best dance album at the SA Music Awards last week, gospel star Khaya [...]
