Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life. -(apologies to Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish).

"I must believe that something extraordinary is possible" -Jennifer Connelly from A Beautiful Mind.

technical draw: Hello <scout118> My first post in your forum. I was just wondering how you popped into 6th place in the bookie game. I was there and was just going to wait it out but apparently that's a dangerous strategy as lower placed players can win big bets and drop you. Anyway ...

  technical draw: The earliest evidence for these statistics learning abilities comes from a study by Jenny Saffran, in which 8-month-old infants were presented with nonsense streams of monotonous speech. Each stream was composed of four three-syllable “pseudowords” that were repeated randomly. After exposure to the speech streams for two minutes, infants reacted differently to hearing “pseudowords” as opposed to “nonwords” from the speech stream, where nonwords were composed of the same syllables that the infants had been exposed to, but in a different order. This suggests that infants are able to learn statistical relationships between syllables even with very limited exposure to a language. That is, infants learn which syllables are always paired together and which ones only occur together relatively rarely, suggesting that they are parts of two different units. This method of learning is thought to be one way that children learn which groups of syllables form individual words. Since the initial discovery of the role of statistical learning in lexical acquisition, the same mechanism has been proposed for elements of phonological acquisition, and syntactical acquisition, as well as in non-linguistic domains. Further research has also indicated that statistical learning is likely a domain-general and even species-general learning mechanism, occurring for visual as well as auditory information,

  technical draw: <The issue of age was first addressed with the critical period hypothesis of second language learning. The strict version of this hypothesis states that there is a cut-off age at about 12, after which learners lose the ability to fully learn a language>

I disagree. The cut off starts at puberty not age.

  technical draw: The science of linguistics is all messed up. You can read volumes about accents and not one will mention muscle memory.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Si <chancho>, por poco me da un ataque al corazón. Esas cosas son verdaderamente espantosas. Aunque el salvajismo es universal duele cuando es cercano a a uno. Que Dios conforte a los familiares.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: <TD> La tragedia de esto es dificil.

Una familia decente haciendo las cosas bien, y que esos dos sucios aparezen a cometer ese crimen.

El cuñado menciono que la gente de alli quieren agarrar a esos desgraciados y lincharlos.

Yo los dejaria.

Suena feo lo se, pero contra, a lo que hemos llegado.
