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. 

No amount of Cites resolutions will stamp out poaching

7th October 2016 People from 180 countries arrived in Johannesburg for the seventeenth World Wildlife Conference, also called COP 17.  It is a conference of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, or Cites. The ‘Cites’ actually comes from the organisation's French... 

Race to Mars not too far off

30th September 2016 The Chinese space lab, Tiangong-1, is on an orbital path that will cause it to crash into the earth’s atmosphere as a fiery ball sometime near the end of 2017.

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...

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...
