DIE PSIGOPAAT ONTMASKER deur Dr Jannie Roux
[kad_youtube url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDSZAGDYM94&feature=share" ]

“Ek het hierdie dinamiese boek gelees.  Dit is die werk van `n kundige man wat die tema met wysheid en insig behandel gegrond op deeglike navorsing oor die verskynsel van die psigopatiese persoonlikheidsversteuring.  Ek het nog nie `n boek teegekom wat hierdie onderwerp op die vlak hanteer wat dr Roux dit doen nie.”

Dr AC Lawrence, Praktiserende Psigiater

“Jannie Roux se manuskrip gooi die lesersnet wyd, sonder om oppervlakkig te wees.  Ons leer die mens agter makabere gebeure ken, kom meer te wete van beweegredes en oorsake van hierdie tipe anti-sosiale gedrag en spreek die immer aanwesige vraag van aanspreeklikheid en behandelbaardheid aan”

Marius Ackerman, Praktiserende Advokaat

“Ek dink die skrywer het dit reggekry om die “waserigheid” rondom psigopatie op `n verstaanbare manier te ontsluit.  Ek dink die boek bied genoeg stof tot nadenke vir praktisyns, akademici, studente en sommer ook vir die leek wat graag meer wil weet oor die gedragsversteuring.  Die boek is goed gebalanseer en smelt seminale inligting van die verlede op `n kreatiewe wyse saam met resente verwikkelings rakende psigopatie.  Die maklike wyse waarop soms moeilike konsepte verduidelik word noodsaak spesiale melding.  Die skrywer se bydrae bied ook `n vars oënskou op die neurofisiologiese aspekte wat met psigopatie geassosieer word.”

Tsitsikamma

Author: Jozua Serfontein

 

Jozua Serfontein was born on 5 July 1928 on the farm Hermanuskraal near Witelsbos in the Tsitsikamma. His father worked as a labourer in the plantations of the Department of Forestry.

He started his career as an Extension Officer for the Department of Agriculture at Molteno and worked in different capacities in the Department before departing for further studies to the USA with his family. After completing a PhD at the University of Wisconsin in 1967, he was appointed in several posts consecutively – as Director of Soil Conservation, as Head of the Elsenburg Agricultural College and as Chief Director of Sea Fisheries in Cape Town.

A plea for the elephants

Author: Kevin Parkinson

 

Over a period of eighty years, between 1979 and 1987, Hong Kong’s mafia-style syndicates, owners of ivory carving factories with no feeling whatsoever for the plight of Africa’s elephants, imported about 4 000 tonnes of ivory from various African countries. This sort of tonnage represented the slaughter of more than 400 000 of African’s elephants. Let us bear in mind that at the time of writing, 2015, that figures sums up to what is now considered left of Africa’s elephants – in all probability even less.

The carnage continues to this every day, with between 25 000 and 30 000 elephants being slaughtered annually by poachers, the killing of elephants outpacing the birth rate. Wealthy king pins connected to Chinese triads control these syndicates that have connections with corrupt government, game development  and custom officials.

Considering that during the 1970’s Africa’s elephant population was approximately 1 500 000, it is obvious that poachers have won the ivory “war”.

Ivory carving factories continue to operate in China and Japan, turning out necklaces, bracelets, rings, chopsticks and other carvings, to be sold in licensed shops. Bull elephants are most sought after by poachers, with the result that breeding bull are becoming fewer and fewer.

During the female’s elephant life – if she lives out her natural lifespan – she may give birth to approximately six calves. They are not prolific breeders: there is usually a gap of six to seven years between each calf.

The world’s largest land mammal, the intelligent and gentle elephant, is in serious trouble. This book tells of the plight of Africa’s elephants and some of the author’s experiences. It is a plea for the elephants.

A Plea for the elephants documentary will be available soon:

The best of South African Bonsai and a little history

Author: Willem Pretorius

(Size A4)

 

“The story of bonsai in South Africa is a fascinating one with colourful characters.

Not many bonsai countries can boast of trapeze artists, fighter pilots, a grower who established a bonsai-en on his bathroom roof and even a blind practitioner in their midst.

It is a rich heritage albeit poorly recorded and with lots of gaps that we can hopefully fill as the years pass. It is imperative that we do it as some of the characters are dying and without a record their tradition will mainly be transferred orally to next generations..”
