Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift off

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you...

Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

(from the immortal David Bowie)

Fukushima: Highest level of radicativty measured at Fukushima. Seems it is inside of one of the reactor buildings and caused by molten Uran/Plutonium. So no direct threat for (human) live

  lost in space: Here a new quicky (Blitz) from last Friday. I was Black.

1. e4 c5 2. g3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Qxd4 Nc6 5. Bb5 Bd7 6. Qc3 Rc8 7. Nf3 Nf6 8. e5? Nxe5 9. Bxd7

9...Qxd7?!

Much better was 10. Nfxd7 or 10. Nexd7

10. Nxe5 dxe5 11. Qxe5 Rxc2 12. Qb8+ Rc8 13. Qf4

Here I planed to play 13..Qe6+ 14. Be3 Rc8+ 15. Ke2 Rxh1(??)

(better is 15...Qa6 (winning for Black), but this is missed)

16. Qb8+ Kd7 17. Qxb7+ Kd8 18. Qxh1 and white is better

So if not Qe6 doe to Qb8: how to continue to win?

13...g5! 14. Qxg5 Qe6+ 15. Be3 Rc1+ 16. Ke2 Qc4+ 17. Kd2 Ne4#
