LANGUAGE Centre staff are travelling to Perth this week to meet with
the Western Australian Language groups at the Wanala Western and
Northern Aboriginal Alliance.
This meeting is a vital part of inter-state alliance on keeping languages
strong and developing ways on improving how languages are developed
to ensure that they are used by future generations.
“The importance of training in new ways to develop our language resources
to be more accessible on multi-media and in ways that the younger
generations can access is very important to us,” said CEO Karan Hayward.
Selina Grant, one of the participants to attend the meeting, said she
was looking forward to adapting the information and knowledge she had
gained from the meeting and valued the sharing of knowledge with the
other language groups of the Northern Territory and Western Australia that
attended the meeting.
The meeting will aid Papulu Apparr-kari Aboriginal Corporation to develop
and plan for the future to ensure they are able to provide the best archival
and resource development of their language resources.
While staff are away at the meeting, Language Centre staff left behind are
busy working on various translations and interpreting work for the NDIS
and other departments.

AN acclaimed exhibition of Leonardo da Vin-
ci’s machines is heading to Tennant Creek.
More than 75 exhibits, reconstructed from the artist,
writer, mathematician and inventor’s manuscripts and
drawings will be on show at the Civic Hall at a date
yet to be announced.
Created by the Artisans of Florence in collaboration
with the Niccolai Group, highlights of the exhibition
includes war, nautical, flying and hydraulic machines,
ground breaking applications of civil engineering, rare
copies of Da Vinci’s codices and reproductions of his
most famous paintings such as the Mona Lisa.
Amongst the 60 interactive machines will be the
bicycle, scuba suit, parachute and spring powered car.
To be brought to town by the Barkly Regional Council
and associated stakeholders on loan from the Museum
of Leonardo da Vinci in Italy, Tennant Creek is the only
Territory stop on the Australian Regional Tour.
Artisans of Florence CEO Luigi Rizzo said the ex-
hibition demonstrates how Leonardo’s work is more
relevant in today’s scientific world than 500 years ago
when he first conceived his amazing ideas.

THE Territory’s Traffic Act has
been amended to allow police to
carry out random drug tests on
The law comes into effect at the begin-
ning of February.
Minister for Police and Transport Peter
Chandler said the amendment would help
police to do their jobs by giving them
greater powers to keep our roads safe.
“If you’re pulled over by police, it could
be for a random breath test for alcohol, a
saliva drug test, or both - so don’t be sur-
prised when it happens to you,” he said.
“Research shows that random drug
testing is having a positive impact on
“A study in Victoria has found that the
current rates of random testing are sav-
ing 20 lives per year and reducing total
driver fatalities by up to eight per cent.”
Mr Chandler said safe roads are a
right for all road users in the Territory
and drivers who kill or seriously injure
someone while on drugs will be held
“Drug use can slow down your reaction
time, causing a distorted view of time and
distance and also stimulate the nervous
system which can lead to reduced atten-
tion span and the sudden onset of fatigue
as the stimulant effects wear off,” he said.
“The Country Liberals are serious about
law and order and these new police pow-
ers are one example of how our policies
are working to keep Territorians safe.”
Drivers who have drugs detected in
their system will have their licence
suspended for 24 hours and may end up
spending six months in prison.
Those who refuse to submit to a saliva
test could be up for a $765 fine or three
months imprisonment for the first of-
