Chess boxing is a hybrid sport which combines boxing with chess in alternating rounds. The sport began when Dutch artist Iepe Rubingh, inspired by fictional depictions by French comic book artist and filmmaker Enki Bilal, organized actual bouts. Chess boxing is now growing in popularity. Participants must be both skilled boxers and chess players, as a match may be won either way.
A match consists of up to eleven alternating rounds of boxing and chess. The match begins with a four-minute chess round. This is followed by three minutes of boxing, with rounds of chess and boxing alternating until the end. There More >

There seem these days to be Iphone apps for almost anything. Anybody with half an idea joins the club and gets it published, hoping that out there there is an audience as stupid as he is who will happily part with ninety nine cents for an application that shows you what you will like like after gaining twenty kilos or tracks your bowel movements (Google Poop the World if you don’t believe me!) In a world that seems to embrace insanity every day, here are a few apps that I hope never get marketed.

Dianna woke up to the alarm clock and got out of bed slowly. After showering she went down stairs where she partook of a small healthy breakfast of orange juice, ham and eggs on toast and freshly brewed coffee. She took the 8:10 train to work which as usual was late. Dianna worked at a midtown office along with thirty other girls in the typing pool. Her day was made up of taking dictations and typing letters on her new electric Remington typewriter. After work she took the train home, late again, picked up her mail from her mailbox, three More >

Some books fall into the category of books that I can’t put down. This category is shared by everyday Suspense stories a la Gresham and serious novels that are or will eventually find their way into 20th and 21nd century masterpiece courses at your local College. A much more prestigious club is that of novels that can have a life changing affect on you. Here you might find Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance Ender’s game and Slaughterhouse Five, others would list Lord of the Rings, The Little Prince and Siddhartha . A third category is of books that are written about More >
