• Jayde’s death splits SA along racial lines - Crime & Courts | IOL News

    The murder of Port Elizabeth teacher Jayde Panayiotou has whipped up a race storm on social media. Panayiotou’s killing sent shockwaves through the country this week after police released an identikit of 31-year-old Thando Siyoli, listed as a suspect in the murder of the 28-year-old Uitenhage teacher. A Facebook group was subsequently set up calling for the death penalty for the killer, but as soon as Panayiotou’s husband, Christopher, was confirmed as another suspect in her killing, the page announced that it would be changing its name to “Justice for Jayde Panayiotou – Change for South Africa”. “Is it because the face of the criminal has changed that we no longer endorse the death penalty,” one comment read.

  • Pacquiao-Mayweather puts boxing in spotlight

    Las Vegas throbbed with anticipation on Saturday with less than 24 hours to go until Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather enter the ring for their long-awaited showdown that has captivated sports fans around the world.

  • LETTER: Why only Obama?

    The article by Mike Berger (Obama risks far more than his reputation on Iran deal, April 28) takes Mr Obama to task for failing to solve one of the major issues the world is confronted with by a completely dysfunctional Middle East. Why is it only Mr Obama at fault here, and not any others (who refuse to compromise), or Europe, Russia, and China? It seems the only criticism of Mr Obama you have refrained from so far is blaming him for the myriad problems that exist here in SA, but I wouldn’t be too surprised to see even that happening one of these days.

  • Tesla unveils battery to ‘transform energy infrastructure’

    Electric car pioneer Tesla unveiled a "home battery" Thursday which its founder Elon Musk said would help change the "entire energy infrastructure of the world". The Tesla Powerwall can store power from solar panels, from the electricity grid at night when it is typically cheaper, and provide a secure backup in the case of a power outage. In theory the device, which typically would fit on the wall of a garage or inside a house, could make solar-powered homes completely independent of the traditional energy grid. "The goal is complete transformation of the entire energy infrastructure of the world, to completely sustainable zero carbon," Mr Musk told reporters shortly before unveiling the Powerwall in a stylish warehouse space outside Los Angeles.

  • South Africa: Xenophobia and Barking At the Wrong Horse - a Response to Professor Mufuka

    Indeed, Professor Ken Mufuka, in an article entitled: "Xenophobia - Barking at the wrong tree" sought to borrow Brilliant Mhlanga's argument that Zimbabweans are probably looking at xenophobia with a jaundiced eye by asserting that before Zimbabweans condemn South Africa they ought to look at their own history and apportion blame where it belongs. By its very nature, xenophobia, is an extremely complex issue that requires sober and rational minds to appreciate its true causes. South Africa is a melting pot but no shared view has been established as to who should be in or out of the pot.
