As I contemplated the expression in the global context of the article I could not help but consider its reading in quarantine whereby the Stormers and Sharks could be read without any association to the rugby teams or the sport itself. In that isolation the name Stormers can easily be associated with the noun storm which refers to violent disturbances of the atmosphere with strong winds, rain, thunder, lightning or snow. Progressively the noun shark refers to a large fish with a triangular fin on its back, many kinds of which preys on other animals. Of course this is no revelation in itself, this lexical drill that is. However, for the fun of it, if we were to push our envelope quite a bit further and go on with the Oxfords we can also state an unpalatable definition of this noun shark which the dear Oxfords secures as an informal definition by saying ‘Shark’ refers to a person who dishonestly obtains money from others. Anyone who had hit rock bottom can almost see the beckoning grin of loan sharks. … Read More Aces/Tricks
The cheer force with which the stink bug or the locust would fight you gave off such a sensation of might in the palms of your hands yet one recognised that the insect also exerted a form of power to which if there was a loss of concentration in your palms it would escape and regain its freedom. It would be very difficult when you loose a dark green locust amongst the greened shrubs as it was camouflaged immediately due to its cloak.… Read More Freedom
While our life has moved on over the centuries from that of hunter gathers and a nomadic people to that of pastoralist and farming communities that relied on battering we swiftly made our way into that of a consuming society relying on a few individuals to produce food for us as well as relying on those who by certain means have accrued capital and own enterprises and corporation to employ us.… Read More Cost
/an aim or desired result/ A little lexical probe into the present word throws us into a game of soccer as far as the Oxfords would have it when one takes a peep at words closer to this nimbus in an entrapment of a word chase. Would we not agree that any game or sport… Read More Goal
When humanity’s heart is bleached, when in the not so distant future coal mining industries are abandoned and a move is towards wind catch-mentation and solar-paneling to harvest energy source to continuously power our lives which is dependent on machines, it is the present industrialist workers who should be ported to work in those green economies as they evolve. Otherwise another, an ensuing threat by all accounts, will continue to be abandoned and it will metastasize into unemployment with its devout relative – starvation.

The ANC Youth League should come up with a logical plan should it wish to appeal to even the so called liberal blacks or coconuts who scoff at their gesticulations as nonsense. If the league of the center of power respects the livelihood of South Africans (and I mean it in its true sense – all South Africans regardless of colour), then as a self proclaimed vanguard of the poor, the dispossessed and the proletariat it should cool headedly propose a sound plan that will appeal to all South Africans who still believe in the democratic state of this nation. You can quack your philosophy about how much you want to go it alone but here is a spanner in the works – do you have the skill and the experience? This question leads us to my last section below.… Read More Void
What is it that we do when we are faced with a situation whereby we are suppose to make a decision that could be life changing? Even those who are wet behind the ears will acknowledge that one has to assess their situation, their stand point; indeed one need to be savvy of where they are in relation to the decision that must be made. Without reverting foolhardy to choice which we have dealt with previously, a decision lies somewhere between where you stand and the choice.… Read More Information
From your limited choice will come experience and this is a guarantee. A sign of maturity will show when you have worked it out for your self what works for you. Whether you will go the dried fruit range in the next shopping spree in pursuit of good health and miss out self indulgence in things all good and hazardous or perhaps you will brave it and pursue the experience of the galaxy of tasty sweetness – the certainty of the matter in this feeble plot is that for some time you’ll be stuck with your choice.
