There’s more to history than political pacts reported by the media

29th July 2016 When history is taught in school, it is usually mainly taught as a political-type subject. In other words, it is all about  what settlement followed what war, and who was in control, and so on. In reality, history is a combination of science, economics and the associated political factors. People... 

Realities of physics don’t seem to bother the greens

22nd July 2016 Physics is a subject of numbers and measurement.  In physics, one has physical laws, such as the laws of motion, the laws of thermodynamics, and so on. The laws of physics can be stated in words, such as the Second Law of Motion: Force is equal to mass times acceleration. But all these laws also... 

Yet another grand space adventure unfolding

15th July 2016 Another amazing space adventure is now unfolding. The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) spacecraft, Juno, has reached its target, the planet Jupiter. It successfully went into orbit around the planet Jupiter on America’s Independence Day, July 4.  Juno is only the second... 

We are not doing ‘progressed’ matriculants any favours

8th July 2016 There is this issue of the Department of Basic Education (DBE) introducing a new scheme to measure matric pass rates. Many people seem to be praising the idea, but I am not so sure; I am still thinking about it. 

There’s more to South African enviro tourism than just the Big Five

1st July 2016 South Africa has one of the most amazing collections of bird species in the world.  In the Southern African region, which includes Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana, there are nearly 1 000 bird species. People come from all over the world to see our birds. A couple of weeks ago, I was... 

Reflections on quality assurance in manufacturing

24th June 2016 The issue of the quality of components manufactured is a topic that comes up time and again. Let us remind ourselves of the terms QC and QA. In days gone by, people referred to QC, for ‘quality control’.  In essence, what that meant was that, when something had been made, it was tested to check... 

Always do the sums when dealing with emotive social issues

17th June 2016 The issue of land and land claims continues to irritate me. Much of it is so unreasonable.  It is also, of course, highly emotive, so people are often scared to even venture into the discussion. In any debate, on almost any topic, one should, early on, carry out the mathematical calculations. As... 

We can’t afford to let malaria take hold

10th June 2016 Malaria is a thoroughly unpleasant disease and people who have had it report that it really is nasty. I have spoken to a number of people who have recovered from malaria, and they all say, not again, please. Of course, malaria can also very easily be fatal.  So, anybody contracting malaria has... 

Gautrain fee increase announcement indicative of poor management

3rd June 2016 Operators of the Gautrain have yet again increased the fees for the service and this irritates me. What particularly irritated me was a Gautrain spokesperson saying in the newspaper: “The Gautrain increases fees every year to keep up with inflation-related increases. Our increases are related to... 

Take emotion out of nuclear debate

27th May 2016 The entire nuclear power debate is an emotional issue in some quarters. This is a great pity because the best way to handle it is with calm, reasoned professionalism. It is a pity that this knee-jerking emotional response happens at all, but even worse is when it happens with people who should...
