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.

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.

There’s more to education than being in class

4th November 2016 The topic of education has been in the news a lot lately. Everybody has been talking about it, but most people are making the fundamental mistake of not asking the question:  What is education? There is a related question, and it is: Why does anybody want to get an education? Let us ponder the... 

Mere tweaks are all that’s needed to update energy plan

21st October 2016 There has been a bit of comment in the media about the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) of the Department of Energy.  The plan is currently used as the planning base is the 2010 IRP. Comment now is that the plan needs updating. That, of course, is quite correct. Any plan needs updates from time to... 

A law will never curb abuse of alcohol

14th October 2016 Proposals to raise the legal age for drinking alcohol from 18 to 21 are being discussed publicly. My opinion is that this should not be done; the legal age should stay at 18.
