Over 30 students from different universities across the country will battle in a cyber security competition This competition creates a platform for students to compete in real-time and come up with ideas that could protect South Africa from cybercrimes. According to the South African Banking Risk Information Centre (SABRIC), South Africa loses over R1 billion each year to cybercrime.
South African students from different universities will represent the country at the International Student Cluster Competition hosted at the 2018 International Supercomputing Conference in Germany. The students came first at a national competition which took place during the annual Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) conference in Pretoria last week.

Dairy production is expensive to maintain due to the high cost of animal feed. There is a need for inexpensive feed to maintain the nutritional requirement of dairy cows. Black wattle (BW) is an invasive plant that grows during all seasons of the year and is readily available at a reasonable price. BW is a potential feed source that can be used to supplement the dietary requirements of dairy cows. However, it cannot be immediately incorporated in animal feeds as there is still not enough information on its feeding value. This study investigates the impact of the inclusions of BW in maize silage on the feed intake and milk production of dairy cows.
