KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 64 years old) United States of America

[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.

  HeMateMe: not automate the ship to automatically change a ship's course, just sound a loud warning so both ships can both manually change course. Cameras are now capable of facial recognition. Optical cameras from drones can read license plates, the technology is there. If the system recognizes another boat is too close, out on open water, an alarm sounds. Hook it up to sonar, for night time situations.

About 15 years ago there was a ferry crash in Staten Island. Two people were responsible for making sure the Manhattan to Staten Island ferry slowed down to a proper speed as it approached Manhattan. One guy was off somewhere scratching his balls. The other guy was on a prescribed medication that interacted unfavorably with something else he was taking and he fell asleep at the wheel. Someone noticed that the ferry wasn't stopping and tried to stop the boat in time, but too late. It crashed into the dock in SI and injured dozens of people. The ferry has since instituted a more military type organization, people at specific posts at times, and you get fired if you're off post. This ferry could have benefitted from an optical device that would warn that land was too close at a given speed, producing a loud alarm. That should be on those boats right now, the technology is there.

Aug-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: "He's not fit for office. Hes mentally unstable etc etc etc etc .... Trump will resign within months!" Thats REPUBLICAN senators and Anderson Pooper.. https://youtu.be/JhLxkM7lbHw
Aug-21-17  SugarDom: <His new hotel on Pennsylvania Ave., where now the people who want influence stay. Prices are much higher than at other luxury hotels.>

Trump always emphasize luxury and so it's not a surprise nor is it illegal if his hotel costs more. This is also a lie because more businessmen are avoiding Trump for fear of backlash.

<Wants to lower corporate and personal tax rates.

Wants to eliminate the alternative minimum tax.

Wants to eliminate the estate tax.>

So it is now Trump's fault when he echoes traditional Republican policies?

  saffuna: You asked. I answered. He benefits from all those policies, they could ean/save him many milions of dollars.

As far as the hotel is concerned, the lease prohibits him from running the hotel. But the govt. is permitting it.

Aug-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Can you kindly comment on the KKK Trump link you begged me to provide sugarplum??? You thought i was lying and its WORSE than i thought! Go post in pet killers forum with insane Tuxy and his creepy delusional couterpart The Ugly duckling yer racist little numptie midget!
Aug-21-17  SugarDom: Where's the poster O'boogie that says "Jews". You got reading comprehension problem?

Trump was right, in the first day it was peaceful then they were joined later by the extremist like KKK.

I can't post too often, i'm being restricted by CG autobot.

  HeMateMe: trump also put in an EO that counteracted something Obama had done, regarding selling USA visas for cash. Wealthy real estate developers (the Kushner family) were taking large fees from wealthy Chinese families, overpriced, for a REIT that they have in Jersey City. The Kushners have been doing this for years. The contribution, a sort of "invest in America" fee, allows such investors to get a pathway to American citizenship.

Obama recognized this was being abused by Kushner types and wanted the pathway to be more available to people of modest incomes. Obama wanted this to be less of a money making scheme by RE developers, restricting their ability to use this tactic to make money.

Trump reversed Obama with his own EO, restoring Kushner's cash flow. The media didn't cover this, because there so many other holes in the dike to plug there wasn't time to cover this one individual story. But, it's just one more conflict of interest in Trump's White House.

Mueller and his team are on it, though. I expect they are being very thorough. I would think the choke points are getting information from overseas investors and paperwork. There's a lot of grey area out there...

Oh really? On Friday night? When they marched to the front steps of the church where the anti-racist group was worshiping?

That's because Trump is smart and you are dumb like Obama. What he's doing is letting the rich invest in America, while you defend the unskilled and poor illegal immigrants. It's better to take their money than spend it on welfare of the illegals.

Aug-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: https://youtu.be/JhLxkM7lbHw

Here!! Are you deaf blind and delusional!?

Aug-21-17  SugarDom: Where was the poster O'boogie?

Anyway, Andersson Cooper, seriously. He and CNN has been trying to bring down Trump from day one.

"Trump will resign." He wishes. hahah...

  HeMateMe: ha! Sugardom is a self-hating Filipino.

Trump is in it to make the top 5% richer. Michael Moore put it very well: "Trump isn't going to do a thing to help poor, white people." The evidence bears this out, the first seven months of Trump's presidency.

Now they're talking about putting more troops in Afghanistan, raising the troop levels, to hold off the Taliban and prop up the shaky government there. I thought we were going to limit our men and money going into that sinkhole?

Aug-21-17  SugarDom: Michael Moore? Really...LOL.

The divine powers put Trump in power so he can stabilize the world, including Afghanistan and undo the evil Obama has done.

<sugardom> And you call Bakker a nut?

Aug-21-17  SugarDom: Well you blokes haven't proven me wrong.

I say let's wait until Trump's term is finished and judge if the world is more stabilized or not.

  saffuna: <I say let's wait until Trump's term is finished and judge if the world is more stabilized or not.>

Oh right. The way you and all your far-right buddies waited until Obama's term was finished.

Aug-21-17  SugarDom: The world turned tupsy turvy on Obama's term. And that is without a doubt.
Aug-21-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Did you wait until his term was completed to determine that?
Aug-21-17  SugarDom: In the meantime, and of course the anti-Trump Left wouldn't agree, but i feel a lot safer already world-wise when Trump assumed power.

  saffuna: <but i feel a lot safer already world-wise when Trump assumed power.>

Because of the way he has increased the US's nuclear arsenal, as <tpstar> claims?
