[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age six, but only took up the game in earnest when he received a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen, Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. When eighteen, he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne; this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

Jul-01-16  HeMateMe: short the euro against the pound? maybe it's a good move. England has most of what they need--good farm land, fishing stocks, oil for themselves and for export. They probably don't have fresh fruit, and must import most of that. They are carbon neutral right now, so they can export oil as needed.

They have good schools, strong links to Europe and the USA. I can't think of any reason why they have to be in a system that allows unchecked migration of unskilled labor into their country. The land in England that needs to be farmed is being farmed right now. Every bit of land that should be paved is paved. They are all done, the country is settled. Have two children per family and just watch your life expectancy and standard of living increase. Just one thing was threatening all of that.

  Big Pawn: Should the UK behead this man?

<A ‘grime’ rapper from Bradford has ostensibly threatened the gang rape of one of UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage’s young daughters, Breitbart London can reveal. Lunar C – real name Jake Brook – tweeted ahead of Britain’s European Union referendum that he and “his pals” would “run a train” on Mr. Farage’s daughter. He did not specify which daughter, but Mr. Farage’s young girls are aged 9 and 15 respectively.>

<The message read: “Here’s a pic of me n my pals on our way to run a train on @Nigel_Farage’s daughter”. He attached a picture of a horde of migrants, as used in UKIP’s famous “Breaking Point” poster. >

Jul-01-16  Petrosianic: <HeMateMe>: <In other words, England is somehow responsible for all of those people in Calais trying to sneak into England through the Chunnel or by boat, and they should somehow be "monitored" by having the whole camp moved onto English soil. I'm not making this up, it was on the BBC news page.>

"Responsible" implies that there's something wrong or undesirable about them. France should apologize immediately.

On the other hand the pound and euro remain lower against the dollar.

Here goes the genius again.

Are parents responsible for their children?

UNITED NATIONS — International mediators trying to promote Mideast peace warned in a highly anticipated report Friday that Israel’s settlement expansion is eroding the viability of a Palestinian state and raises “legitimate questions” about its commitment to a two-state solution.>

The Quartet of Mideast negotiators — the U.N., U.S., European Union and Russia — also criticized the glorification of Palestinians who commit “terrorist attacks” against Israel and called on the Palestinian Authority to “act decisively” to stop incitement to violence and clearly condemn “all acts of terrorism.”>

While the Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the majority of people on both sides support a negotiated two-state solution, the mediators expressed serious concern that continuing on the current course “will make this prospect increasingly remote.”>

The Quartet called for immediate steps to reverse three trends that it says are “severely undermining hopes for peace” — Israeli settlement construction and expansion; the Palestinians’ lack of unity and the illicit arms build-up and militant activity in Gaza; and continuing violence, “terrorist attacks” against civilians and incitement to violence.>

Without urgent action, the Quartet warned that “a one-state reality of perpetual occupation and conflict” will become entrenched, which “is incompatible with realizing the national aspirations of both peoples.”>
