“… by the help of Microscopes, there is nothing so small, as to escape our inquiry; hence there is a new visible World discovered …” Robert Hooke 1665

People have been aware of small living organisms such as mites and ticks from early times, mainly because of the association of these organisms with pets and livestock.  In 1665 the English scientist, Robert Hooke (1635–1703), published a book, Micrographia, which is one of the earliest books about the use of a microscope to view the world of tiny animals. 

Denis Goldberg, a struggle veteran of the calibre of Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu and Bram Fischer, sadly passed away on 29 April.  He was 87.  Among others, Goldberg will be remembered for the Rivonia trial of 1964 during which he was found guilty on charges of sabotage and plans to overthrow the apartheid regime.  He was handed four life sentences as one of the founding members of uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK).
