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... 

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...
