Time, impulse and thought our age does not count

It was at a secret location where junior chess players along with experienced Grand Masters gathered this past weekend. As usual Introductions were casual, trying not to reveal too much about oneself, players acted as though they were oblivious to the real reason they were there. The gates were yet to be opened on a very cloudy Saturday morning the chess payers waited anxiously for the Clocks to be set and for the round robin stage to begin.

Deep thoughts and inner battles of…

Open concept design does more than add space to a house, research says

Open floor plan interior design is changing the way homes are being built. These days, the only walls you find in a home are the exterior ones and those surrounding the bedrooms and bathrooms. Otherwise, the kitchen, dining room, den, and living room all tend to blend together into one giant common area. This, taken in stark contrast with homes of the past where every floor plan was separated into segments, seems a drastic change. What is it about open floor plans that has captured the…

Letterbomb (Short story)

My sister, four years older than me, has not spoken to me in 12 years. (Of course it is a euphemism for surgically cutting me out of the fibre of her life.) She blames my love for women.

Tossed Paint in 3500th of a Second

New York photographers Jeremy Floto and Cassandra Warner have created a stunning series called Colourant. These eye-popping images come from using colourful smoke, deserted landscapes and buildings.

Computer Aided Design - Changing Our Lives Every Day

There was a time, not too long ago, when developing a new product was a chore. Tedious processes of designing by hand, and manufacturing multiple pre-versions of the eventual product, meant that great inventions got stuck somewhere between concept and reality.

The advent of computer aided design (CAD) has revolutionised this process so much that it has infiltrated almost every aspect of our lives. Sure, it is easy to…

How is 3D Printing Going to Change Industry?

3D printing has been around for a while but was limited in terms of the size of printing jobs and the materials that could be printed. That’s no longer the case. Entire houses can be printed, food can be manipulated into weird and wonderful art forms, transplantable…

Faan se trein (movie review)

One can no longer say that a film like Faan se trein is good for “an Afrikaans film”. There are simply too many incredible Afrikaans and South African films available. Thus I have to judge Faan se trein according to international (and South African) standards.…

Winter in Europe

The wife was awarded a residency in Germany over the December holidays. Everyone shivered at the thought of winter in Europe, but we braved it. Yes, it was a little cold, but it had a beauty of its own. Plus, there were no hordes of silly tourists. Bonus.
