CA - I teach Geometry and AP Stats at the high school level. I stopped playing chess online a while back and decided to let Rybka kick my tail around the board. According to Rybka I'm 1420 on my best day and embarrassing most other days. I'm a big fan of:

The Scandinavian
2-Proportion hypothesis testing
Sacrifices I would NEVER see
Chicago Bears
Oakland Athletics
Actually playing chess over a live board.

eykca: <"You can see the hand of a master".> A borrowed line from when Leibniz challenged his contemporaries to solve a difficult math problem. Legend has it, Newton came home from his farm one day to find the problem in his mailbox. He solved it that evening and submitted it ...
