Na die ongelooflike sukses van RSG se Hoe verklaar jy dit? is dit niks minder as gepas om met hierdie tweede volume Suid-Afrikaners se nuuskierigheid oor die wêreld verder te bevredig nie.

In Hoe verklaar jy dit? #2 bring Danny Fourie weer 'n gerf van die interessantste vrae en antwoorde byeen wat deur RSG se kundige medewerkers in die gewilde radioprogram behandel is. En dit help die leser natuurlik om die wêreld om ons minder vreemd te maak.

Hoe verklaar jy ons honger na inligting en ons dors na kennis? Die antwoord is eenvoudig: Ons is mal daaroor om antwoorde te kry, selfs al is daar geen oënskynlike voordeel daarin nie.

Is dit werklik nodig om te weet wat 'n Jerusalem-kriek of 'n sweepspinnekop is? Waarom die son nie uitbrand nie? Hoekom 'n mens se oë traan as jy uie sny? Hoe die Richter-skaal werk? Wie en wat die Florisbadmens is? Wat links- en regshandigheid bepaal? Van al die soogdiere is ons die enigste wat lewenslank nuuskierig bly. Daarom sal Hoe verklaar jy dit? #2 jou nog meer fassineer.

We know that the moon influences the tides, but did you know that with the full moon, you always see the same side of the moon? Or that a yawn is contagious for humans and some animals? And what precisely causes birds not to bump into one another when they fly in a swarm and they swerve?

These facts are part of a massive amount of knowledge about nature, physics and space that the RSG programme Hoe verklaar jy dit? has been sharing for 37 years. This book, translated from the original, bestselling Afrikaans version, contains a selection from the hundreds of questions curious listeners have been asking the experts to answer in order to make the world a little less strange, because not all knowledge is obvious. There are so many wonderful enigmas in nature and space that beg to be explained - and we won't even mention man made inventions!

How Do You Explain That? will pique your interest in the world around you. It is a book that can be enjoyed on its own, or can lie on the coffee table, or can go camping with the family to elicit wonderful conversations around the campfire.

Die elfde uitgawe van die Afrikaanse woordelys en spelreëls (AWS) word op 3 Augustus 2017 bekendgestel - 100 jaar nadat Afrikaans vir die eerste keer amptelik met dié standaardnaslaanbron vir spelling en skryfwyse bereël is.
Die 2017-uitgawe, saamgestel deur die Taalkommissie van die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns en uitgegee deur NB-Uitgewers onder die Pharos-druknaam, is omvattend herbewerk en sluit talle nuwe woorde in wat die tydsgees en breër Afrikaanse taalgemeenskap weerspieël. Reëls is ook verander en vereenvoudig om Afrikaanse spelling en skryfwyse meer sistematies en dus makliker vir gebruikers te maak.
'Afrikaans is 'n dinamiese taal wat deurlopend ontwikkel en die jongste AWS is 'n opwindende, lewende bewys hiervan,' sê prof. Gerhard van Huyssteen, voorsitter van die Taalkommissie.
Onder die nuwe toevoegings tot die 2017-AWS tel woorde wat te make het met tegnologiese ontwikkelinge, soos googleloer, hommeltuig, meem, warsender, antispioenware, selfie en skermgreep; woorde wat ontwikkelinge in die samelewing sedert die verskyning van die vorige AWS agt jaar gelede weerspieël, soos bewarea, BRICS-land of Bricsland, bystanddood en hidrobreking; en leenwoorde of nuutskeppings waarvoor daar nie Afrikaanse woorde is nie, soos brownie, Chanoeka, muffin, nurk (die geluid wat seekoeie maak), venue en flop. Heelwat nuwe woorde uit Afrikaans se gebruiksvariëteite soos Kaapse Afrikaans en Oranjerivierafrikaans is ook opgeneem, byvoorbeeld antie, dhaltjie, gangster en poenankies (oulik).
Wat spelling en skryfwyse betref, is reëls wat verander onder meer dat afstandsamestellings voortaan slegs mét 'n koppelteken geskryf word (hoof- uitvoerende beampte, reuse- politieke vergadering), en dat die integriteit van multiwoordeiename in samestellings en afleidings behou word (Derde Wêreldse in plaas van Derdewêreldse; Konstitusionele Hof-regter of Konstitusionele Hofregter in plaas van Konstitusionelehofregter).
Nuwighede sluit in 'n hoofstuk oor leestekengebruik in Afrikaans, die bereëling van trappe van vergelyking, 'n lys Oosterse plekname, landname met geldeenhede en ISO-kodes, en die Afrikaanse name van elemente in die periodieke tabel. Skryfhulp word ook nou vir die SI-stelsel verskaf.

Ons weet dat die maan iets met die getye te doen het, maar het jy geweet dat jy met volmaan altyd dieselfde kant van die maan sien? Of dat weerligstrale vol vernietigende elektrisiteit is, maar dat 'n elektriese paling 'n lading van tot 600 volt kan vrystel?

Hierdie feite is deel van 'n magdom kennis oor die natuur, fisiese wetenskap en die ruimte wat die RSG-program Hoe verklaar jy dit? reeds jare lank beantwoord. Hierdie publikasie bevat 'n keur uit die honderde vrae van nuuskierige luisteraars wat deur kundiges verduidelik is om die wêreld minder vreemd te maak, want nie alle kennis van die wêreld om ons is voor die hand liggend nie. Daar is honderde verskynsels in die natuur en ruimte wat vra om verklaar te word. Dan praat ons nie eens van die mensgemaakte uitvindings soos die internet, persoonlike rekenaars, globale posisioneringstelsels, selfone, radiogolwe, teorie van evolusie, relatiwiteitsteorie, narkose en mense in die ruimte nie.

Agter die alledaagse skuil die fassinerende werking van kragte en wette en die wetenskap in werking: Wat bepaal dat 'n mens se hart aan die linkerkant van die liggaam sit? Hoekom vries water in 'n dam van bo en nie van onder af nie? Kan gene deur omstandighede gemodifiseer word? Hoe verklaar jy dit? is 'n boek wat jou belangstelling in die wêreld om jou sal prikkel. Dit is 'n boek wat op sy eie gelees kan word, wat op die koffietafel kan lê en wat saam kan gaan kamp om wonderlike gesprekke om die braaivleisvuur uit te lok.
