Many arguments are similar to like charges that will never meet

23rd September 2016 In elementary nuclear physics textbooks, there is almost always a simple diagram of two like charges being fired at each other.  So, one will see two positively charged protons moving towards each other on a collision course. But, as they get close, they skid past each other without touching. The... 

Nuclear-powered desalination a possible solution to SA’s water woes

16th September 2016 People in the area falling under the Kouga municipality are becoming worried that the drought is continuing. This area is in the Eastern Cape and stretches inland from around Jeffrey’s Bay, St Francis Bay and Oyster Bay. It is a rich agricultural area and the prime dairy producing area of the... 

Proposed sugar tax leaves sour taste in the mouth

9th September 2016 I have, once again, been reading about the proposed sugar tax, which government says wants to introduce next year.  The whole idea of a sugar tax leaves a sour taste in my mouth. The tax is proposed to be levied on sugared beverages. 

The army must be in charge of new border control unit

2nd September 2016 I read that there is something of a battle going on between the South African Police Service (SAPS), the National Treasury the Department of Home Affairs over who gains control of the proposed border control entity. This new entity has been under consideration for some time.  It is expected that... 

The pseudoscience concerning selfies

26th August 2016 It continues to amaze me how much utter rubbish people can speak about science.  Also amazing is that some newspapers and people in authority will reproduce the nonsense. In some respects, mankind has not advanced that much since the days when witches were burned at the stake. Somehow, people... 

It’s brain power that is the winning element in sport

19th August 2016 Watching the Lions rugby team playing in the final games of the Super Rugby was fantastic. They played like real stars. What struck me particularly was that the reality of rugby at that level is that it is a case of brains rather than brawn. The Lions used brains.  Very visible was their fast... 

Much-hyped flight just shows what solar energy will not do

12th August 2016 The solar-powered aircraft dubbed Solar Impulse 2 recently completed its mission of a round-the-world flight powered only by solar energy. This was an amazing achievement of physics. It was also a landmark achievement by the two pilots, Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg.  The pilots have to... 

Antinuke lobby’s amazing distortion and dishonesty

5th August 2016 Something that is really strange is the amount of sheer distortion and dishonesty that appears in the nuclear power debate internationally.  The antinuclear lobby has complete paranoia about nuclear power and, in many instances, does not seem remotely capable of conducting an honest or reasoned... 

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...
