Women Succeed in STEM careers in Muslim countries

Muslims - you are not going to like this.





The Old Man has a way of talking to us, through data and not through prayer! And what the data is saying is that muslin countries could be doing better in the technology sector. Since Islam is my second favorite Abrahamist religion I feel compelled to help you. I hope you can read this in that spirit.…

The Maths of Racial Mixing

Lets consider mathematically what happens when two racially distinct humanoid populations meet. eg Settlers arriving in South Africa.

You can assume as much as you like that these populations hate each other and would never think of cross breeding, but in reality a cross breeding rate of 1% is probably a massive underestimate. In the case of…

On the Beach

Who would have thought in the first half of the 21st century,

That minds immeasurably inferior to ours would bring about our end.

Each day more beautiful than the last, crescends in a strawberry sunset,

Vanilla clouds sparkle for a…

Steven Hawking

It is because of guys like Hawking that have 10 years of back copies of New Scientist piled in my office. Before The Internet, I would wait eagerly each week for their arrival.

Steven Hawking inspired wannabe…

Budget 2018 - Do Nothing in the face of Crisis

In summary the problem with the 2018 Budget is that it does nothing in the face of a crisis. This is not a budget, it is a stop gap to the 2019…

The case against Cheddar Man's blackness.

To begin - a note on why skin color is important.

While Africa is a continent of diverse racial mixings, those with higher levels of melamine have historically suffered racist attacks. Currently, ultra racist societies like Israel would deport Cheddar Man. Today albinos are hunted for their body parts in Central Africa.  For the sake of the…

Blaming Capitalism

Blaming Capitalism for poverty is like blaming psychology for suicides.

Capitalism is not about harming others, it is a methodology to produce. Capitalism is not perfect, but only consumers blame capitalism for their unfulfilled wants. Real producers understand the demands of capital. The idea that capitalists are not generous and sharing is an anathema to me. By definition, Capitalists give up their own consumption to invest resources into production. You are mistaking the…

SA Economy Quick Fix

These are my suggestions. None of these will be popular with the incumbents.

1) Race.

Cut the nonsense discussion on race. It makes whites unpatriotic and it creates an unrealistic expectation in blacks. The problem is not race, it is Small vs Big business. Because of history that comes down to (small-black) vs (big -white). but viewing in terms of the  race issue distracts. The big industries will fight with everything to hold their privilege. We have to focus pressure…

Colonialism for Capetonians

Colonialism is not a colloquialism for black-white relations.

The idea of using a spurious connection between racism and Colonialism is not only disingenuous, but runs orthogonal to the vector of historical truth. For surely no true statement about Colonialism can be construed as racist. Such logic leads to absurdities.…

#termlimits

I would like to talk about #termlimits how they can help democracies world wide and highlight how they can solve the current political position in South Africa.

Term limits is a global movement that wants the current constitutional term limits on Presidents extended. To set an example for the world, I am suggesting that this is how we should play it in South Africa:…

Colonialism

1)A great many evils were perpetrated in the colonial period, none greater than the murder of 26,000 Afrikaners and their supporters in the 1900 Anglo Boer War. The economic mismanagement and growth underperformance caused by the Glen Grey, The Land Acts had far reaching implications for the underdevelopment of South Africa. The brunt of these mischievous deeds were born by black South Africans in that period.

2) It is time for Helen Zille, along with all the other elected…

Budget 2017

There is something quite surreal about watching your Nations leaders united as they stand and cheer in Pravin Gordhan, who has almost single handedly executed our economic destruction. Has no one read Mark Twain, "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect."

If you read my 2013 Budget review,…

PAC 2017

OK PAC here is my offer for 2017. If we are going to win in 2019 we are going to need to make some changes:

We have to focus on the positive.

Voters will not follow negative narratives.

Its a liberation not a revolution.

There is only one race, the human race.

Deal with the rich. They may not have the vote, but they do determine the outcome of elections.

You can't make the poor richer by making the rich poorer. When you threaten to force the rich to…
