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... 

Be wary of self-proclaimed environmental campaigners

20th May 2016 The concept of environmentalism is undoubtedly good. People across the plant need to have a mental frame of reference in which they appreciate living in a clean world – no litter, no waste chemicals in rivers, and so on. But it goes further than that. An appreciation of the balance of nature and... 

Misguided bonfire

13th May 2016 So, Kenya did burn its 130 t of elephant ivory. There was a dramatic picture in the newspapers of these huge piles of Ivory, beautifully stacked into patterned pyres that looked more like a major celebration than a funeral. To me it was a funeral; all those elephants died and their tusks were... 

The Hawks’ misplaced focus

6th May 2016 The special police unit, the Hawks, has been in the news a great deal of late. Unfortunately, much of the media coverage is not for the correct reasons. There have been High Court comments concerning the head of the Hawks and much of the commentary is not complimentary. I would like the Hawks in... 

It takes more than just a good coach for a team to excel

29th April 2016 I have been watching the performance of various national sports teams and it is an interesting exercise to contemplate what makes a winning team. I am of the opinion that it is virtually entirely psychology. 

Striking workers holding society to ransom

22nd April 2016 The Pikitup refuse workers in Johannesburg were on strike for about month. While they were on strike, refuse piled up in the city centre.  This was not only unsightly, but also a potential health hazard. 

Pool weir a classic example of bad engineering design

15th April 2016 Recently, I had to have my home swimming pool recoated in new fibreglass and I took the opportunity to make a few changes. One thing I did was to put in a new weir.  My old weir had been hand-made out of cement, with pipes placed in the cement.  It had worked perfectly for decades. One thing I... 

T-20 cricket highlights need to go back to first principles

8th April 2016 I have been watching the T-20 cricket World Cup.  It has been most exciting. The T-20 is a completely different game to the conventional test cricket.  Very different. But what strikes me is that the authorities have used the test cricket style and conventions and adapted them to T-20. 

Different state of mind needed to get our heads around scientific discoveries

1st April 2016 We think that we live in an advanced world – and, of course, we do, as looked at from our existing platform. But people in 1850 also thought that they lived in an advanced world, as did those who lived in 1750. In 2100, people will look back in history to the first decades after the year 2000 and... 

Scientists must always think of the flip side of their work

25th March 2016 In this modern world, the rate of technology advance is truly amazing. One can only imagine that it will accelerate even further in the future. However, I think I can safely say that every technology advance produces a social impact.  Some are very direct, like cellphones, and others may not be...
