Morning Start: Walmart has a lower acceptance rate than Harvard

Your morning start for Monday, July 27, 2020

Good morning, it’s going to be a hot one all week. A heat warning is in effect for the Okanagan Valley.

Fun Fact of the day: Walmart has a lower acceptance rate than Harvard

Harvard might be hard to get into with a 4.5 per cent admittance rate, but try this on for size: only 2.6 per cent of Walmart applicants are accepted. How ‘bout them apples? Now, we realize that this comparison isn’t exactly flawless, but you have to admit that it’s a funny fact.

In case you missed it: Alberta family believes tug nuts were purposely loosened in Summerland after tire flies off

An Alberta nurse and her three children narrowly escaped injury after the front tire of the woman’s SUV flew off while traveling from Summerland to Alberta.

On Thursday, July 23 at around 5:30 p.m., Krista Paulsen was driving her 2006 Honda Pilot with her three children when the front wheel of her car came off on Highway 1 in the Rocky Mountains of Canmore Alberta, according to Paulsen’s father, Rick Bigland.

According to Bigland, Paulsen left Summerland and headed home towards Canmore at 9:30 a.m. on July 23 after a three-week stay with her parents.

Fortunately, Paulsen was able to maintain control of her car and get it off the road. However, the car sustained damage to the hub and rim and tire continued some distance down the highway after coming off the car.
