  whiteshark: " Kantholi Rathnakaran is one of the most colourful players of Indian chess. The way he sacrifices pieces is just unbelievable. More often than not he has no explanation for why a specific move or sacrifice was made. But in this video we try to decode the play of Indian Tal. Why does he sacrifice a piece, how does he feel the positions and what is his way of thinking. <Ratnakaran> is a man of few words. <He doesn't like being called the Indian Tal. Why insult Tal is what he says.> But I think he is a genius and so do many other strong players. ..."

  whiteshark: [Great White Sharks]

Sharks have the reputation of being cold-blooded killers that will attack and try to eat just about anything. But in reality, they are actually a lot pickier than many people realize - Attacks on humans are very very rare.

But even the "cold-blooded" portion isn't even true - at least not when it comes to Great Whites. Because they are in fact part of a small group of sharks that can elevate their body temperatures above the water temperature - effectively becoming warm-blooded. Here's how they do it:

  whiteshark: London (1932)

<MissScarlett: The Premier Reserves was jointly won by Adrian Garcia Conde and <R Schadle>, described in the <Linlithgowshire Gazette> as 'a brilliant young German.' A few weeks earlier, he'd won the London Boys' Championship. In between, he even turned out for Kent in a match vs. Essex. Then he promptly disappears. I assume he returned to Germany - any sign of him back there?>

<Tabanus: <Richard Schädle, Augsburg?> http://archive.is/MVm5>

Very likely, as the details fit.
Chessbase Megabase has <36> hits, among them <7> games w/ full score, <2> games w/ fragments only and <27> w/ results only.

All games played in 4 tournaments between 1932 and 1937. During this time he played for the chess club <SK Ingolstadt> (which is ~ 80km away from Augsburg). He gave a Farewell-Simul there in 1937.[moving to Augsburg?]

The SK Ingolstadt history page also has a picture with him where he wears a uniform* (page 16, left photo, middle of the back row: http://skingolstadt.de/index.php/en... + sadly it says he felt during WW2.

Originally, this shark was thought to be a mako shark and was called Isurus hastalis. ... If you want to dive into greater detail, I suggest reading some of those papers in the references at the bottom of this page.
