A comparative study of the effects of methamphetamine on memory in existing and recovering addicts from a South African population
Cindy van Wyk,Anita D. Stuart
Health SA Gesondheid , 2012,
Abstract: Memory is a complex of systems by which an organism registers, stores and retrieves exposure toan event or experience. Literature purports that methamphetamine users and dependents havebeen found to exhibits signs of memory impairment. The aim of the research was to establishthe possible existence of significant differences in memory in current methamphetamine users,recovering methamphetamine users, and a matched drug na ve control group. Cognitivefunctioning was assessed via a neurocognitive test battery that examined the memory of14 current methamphetamine users, 17 recovering methamphetamine addicts, and 18 drugna ve control participants who were matched according to the demographic variables of age,gender and educational status. The results indicated that recovering methamphetamine usersexperienced the greatest impairment in memory in comparison to both the control group andcurrent users of methamphetamine. The current users of methamphetamine also experiencedsome impairment in memory functioning in visual acquisition and retention. The poorperformance of the recovering addicts is explained by the juxtaposition of the stimulatingand supplemental effect of methamphetamine as experienced by the current users versus theneurotransmitter depletion and structural changes in the brain experienced by the recoveringaddicts. The control group showed a superior performance since they did not suffer from theneurotoxic effects of methamphetamine.
Apologie vir die Christelike lewenswyse en etiek
IWC van Wyk
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2008,
Abstract: Apology for a Christian way of life and ethics. Many young Afrikaners have turned their backs on the Calvinistic churches in South Africa. Many of them have difficulty with the Christian morality. Works of by “Boetman” and Koos Kombuis are analysed in order to get acquainted with present-day thinking of the critics of the Afrikaans churches. This article proposes a positive reception of the moral tradition of the Early Church. A short overview of the basic aspects of the ethics of the early church fathers and apologists is given. Whether the critics would embrace a morality of caring, remains an open question. The author is convinced that this morality is the better one. The critics are invited to rethink Christian morality and ethics. HTS Theological Studies Vol. 64 (1) 2008: pp. 599-629

Aspects of reformed missiology in Africa: A contribution to a German lutheran debate
INWC van Wyk
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009,
Abstract: This article is based on a paper delivered at a Lutheran Missionary Conference in Bleckmar, Germany. The request was to give an overview of the development and the state of Reformed missiology with special reference to South Africa in order to stimulate the missiological debate in the German-Lutheran church. Within the space of an hour, one could only concentrate on the struggles and concerns of one’s own church and its missionary institute. The border lines of the article are laid down by the major themes of Reformed theology and missiology, such as ‘the Word alone’, ‘conversion’, ‘the formation of congregations’, ‘the glory of God’ and ‘ongoing reformation’. Readers are introduced to a few Reformed missiologists who had a decisive infl uence on the development of Reformed missiology, such as Gisbertus Voetius, Hendrik Kraemer, Arnoldus van Ruler, Johannes Verkuyl and Jürgen Moltmann. The initial Lutheran audience was informed about the self-caused problems in the Reformed tradition. Both the audience and the readership are cautioned not to withdraw from the basic Lutheran theologoumena, such as the ‘two-kingdom theory’. The next decade will be a decisive period for the missionary efforts of the churches. Ecumenical solidarity and cooperation will be needed to work out new strategies whereby churches will be enabled to continue with missionary work on a new fi nancial basis.

“As jou broer verkeerd opgetree het teen jou ...”: Enkele aspekte van kerklike dissipline uit die Kerkorde van die Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk van Afrika
BJ van Wyk
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2008,
Abstract: “If a brother sins against you ...”: Certain aspects of church discipline from the Church Ordinance of the Netherdutch Reformed Church of Africa Church discipline has been a substantial part of Church Ordinances since the Geneva Church Ordinance of 1541, and was pursued and developed in the Netherlands and consequently also in South Africa. For obvious reasons church discipline forms part of the Church Ordinance of the Netherdutch Reformed Church of Africa. An effort is made to partly rewrite the church discipline and also to alter and to make the existing appeal possibilities more accessible, particularly with regard to the verdicts of the Synodical Commission.

Kerkreg? Die plek van Kerkreg en Kerkregering
BJ van Wyk
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2007,
Abstract: It is generally accepted that John Calvin can be referred to as the founder of the presbyterial-synodal form of church government which is found in the Reformed Churches. It would therefore be appropriate to focus on his views and to indicate to what extent he influenced the notion that Jesus Christ is Head of the Church and Lord of the world. If it can once again be concluded that there is a close relation between Church, Confession and Church Ordinance, then it is quite evident that Church polity occupies a fundamental place in the Reformed Churches which must be treated with greater concern.

Parallel planning mechanisms as a 'recipe for disaster'
J Van Wyk
Potchefstroom Electronic Law Journal/Potchefstroomse Elektroniese Regsblad , 2010,
Abstract: This note offers a critical reflection of the recent landmark decision in City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality v Gauteng Development Tribunal which lay to rest the negative consequences of employing the DFA procedures of the Development Facilitation Act 67 of 1995 (DFA) alongside those of the provincial Ordinances to establish townships (or to use DFA parlance, “land development areas”). The welcome and timely decision in City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality v Gauteng Development Tribunal has declared invalid chapters V and VI of the DFA. Moreover, it has formalised planning terminology in South Africa, delineated the boundaries of “municipal planning” and “urban planning and development” as listed in Schedules 4 and 5 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 and, in the process, clarified the structure of planning law. This note examines the decision of the SCA and focus on the role it will clearly have in reforming some of the law relating to planning. It considers the facts of the case, uncertainties around terminology, the structure of planning in South Africa, the content of municipal planning, the role of the DFA and the consequences of the declaration of invalidity by the SCA.
