High-powered speakers lined up for Nuclear Africa

17th February 2017 South Africa’s nuclear programme has attracted a great deal of public interest. This has ranged from serious scientific and engineering interest to the emotional attacks of the extreme antinuclear lobby. The antinuclear crowd does not comprise South Africa only; there are Germans, Americans and... 

Leave the science of climate change to scientists

10th February 2017 I saw on television that Prince Charles has just brought out a booklet on climate change, designed to teach people about the issue. The book is written by him and two academics, supposedly. No doubt, that means that the other two wrote it and he put his name on the top of the author list. 

Thumbs up for Eskom’s plan to cut off errant municipalities

3rd February 2017 The price of electricity is a most fundamental factor in the development of an economy. Electricity can be compared to the blood flowing around a person’s body. If you run low on blood supply, you can pass out. A substantial cut in a blood vessel can lead to significant bleeding, and, if it is... 

Hollywood, TV promoting ‘crazy’ science

27th January 2017 Something that irritates me is when there is crazy, impossible science in Hollywood movies. It happens a lot.  It happens on TV all the time.  What I am talking about is things like when some fellow in a modern war movie picks up an infrared viewer and then looks clean through a concrete wall and... 

New coins to mark Krugerrands’ golden jubilee

20th January 2017 This year,  a new pure-silver Krugerrand will be issued to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the first gold Krugerrands being issued in 1967. From 1967 to 1970, the Krugerrands were produced mainly for collectors, but they became so popular that, in 1970, the South African Mint started... 

The importance of reading comprehension

16th December 2016 When I was at school, during English language classes, we used to have an activity called ‘reading study’.  We also had the same activity in Afrikaans classes, and it was called begripstoets,  The term begripstoets translates as ‘comprehension test,’ which is a much better term than ‘reading... 

Nuclear power is the way to go

9th December 2016 If one decides to build a new hospital, one would expect that medical doctors and nurses would have a major say in how the hospital should be laid out. Architects would be involved. But local church groups, the baker and butcher should not be involved. Representatives of the church could make... 

Thinking outside the box not as easy as it may seem

2nd December 2016 Something that I have done for many years is to carry out strategic planning sessions for companies. These sometimes last a couple of hours, but at other times they last for three days.  Even three days usually turns out not to be enough. 

The bigger picture is lost on prosecutions head

25th November 2016 One often hears the comment ‘seeing the bigger picture.’ In fact, it is repeated so often that at times I become really tired of hearing it.  One other thing that puts that phrase lower down on my popularity list is the fact that so many people who use it do not actually have the capability of... 

Sadly, the Hawks following in the Scorpions’ footsteps

18th November 2016 The police unit that is popularly the Hawks continues to embarrass itself in public and, for that matter, internationally.  I have written about the Hawks more than once before. When the unit was established, I wrote a congratulatory column and I said that I hoped that the unit would be different...
