Nov-19-05  Akavall: Wait a minute Left wing is in power? I thought they had 8.39% or do you mean that Social Democrats are left too? Either way, I am not following you.

According to CIA "factbook"
Sweden has unemployment rate of 5.6%, which is not bad at all for Europe. In Germany it is over 10%.

And "purchasing power parity - $28,400 (2004 est.) ", which doesn't looks like a strong economy to me.

Nov-19-05  Akavall: Btw, in the US unemployment rate is 5.5%.
Nov-19-05  Saruman: <Akavall> In Sweden the unemployment rate is actually close to 20% since they have manipulated the statistics. Many people participate in courses so that they will get a real job sometime in a distant future, its of course funded by the State and costs alot of money. Others retire early even though they shouldn't and so on.
Nov-19-05  Akavall: <Saruman> Ok, yeah, I see that point "creative statistics" is a know problem.

<And "purchasing power parity - $28,400 (2004 est.) ", which doesn't looks like a strong economy to me.> Here I meant to say that $28,400 is actually a strong economy, ("doesn't" remained there from my previous thought). It probably is one of the highest in Europe.

Nov-19-05  Saruman: <Akavall> Yes, the Social Democrats are to the left, and much further to the left than the labour party in England for example. BTW the Left Party consists of communists or "half" communists.
Nov-19-05  Akavall: <Saruman> Thanks for the info.

Nov-19-05  Ron: Maybe I should brush up on my French:

Nov-20-05  poktirity: <Ron> Vive la France!

And about fixing statistics, I don't think Sweden would have 20% unempolyment if we counted unemployment in the international way, but it would certainly be closer to 10%.

In Sweden we have something called "arbetsmarknadspolitiska åtgärder" (my favorite word) or in english a labour market political action programme, where unemployed learn to start their own business, write proper CVs etc. Those people are not included in the official statistics when they in fact should be. Another way of getting the unemployment percentage to look lower is to make people sick-listed over a long time or even worse retire people early on so called disability pension.

The economy is fairly strong still but we have lost positions internationally the past 20 years and it will probably not be better in the future, escpecially not if the Greens get there demand on a 6 hour work day through.

Swedens economy is a sinking ship, I'm planning on getting as much as possible of tax money and then leave.

Nov-20-05  meloncio: <Ron> Wow, I'm a new & enthusiastic member of Melissa Theriau Fans Club!
Nov-20-05  Cecil Brown: Back in Napoleonic times the Royal Navy used to say that French ships were like French women. Beautifully made, but poorly manned. Good find <Ron>!

Nov-20-05  Saruman: <poktirity> @ it's 17% right now and used to be 21.1%
Nov-20-05  poktirity: Well I don't think that their way of counting is internationally accepted one, they certainly have motives to exagerate, but it's certainly higher than 5.6%.
Oct-18-07  Udit Narayan: Did you know that there is really a Hilton in Paris?


Oct-18-07  Kaspablanca: Le Marais or Montmartre?

  Benzol: "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times".

Happy Bastille Day.


Jul-15-08  norami: <Benzol> "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." Best ever start of a novel.
Jul-15-08  Jim Bartle: "It is a far, far better thing..."

Nice ending, too.

Oct-20-08  Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker: <“The women that one sees in the streets and restaurants are far from being pretty, with rare exceptions. But they dress with style, their conversation is lively, and they show an evident desire to please. Woman is the topic at all Parisian shows, which becomes a little monotonous after awhile.”>

From "New York Evening Post", Saturday 30 January (and 1 February) 1909, Datelined “Paris, Jan. 5

<"CHESS in HISTORY – Robespierre was the symbol of the Reign of Terror in France, and liked to play chess at the Café de la Regence. Between 1793-1794, he oversaw more than 17,000 citizens executed at the guillotine as enemies of the state. During summer 1793, he was supposed to have granted a condemned man freedom after losing at chess to his fiancee/wife at the Cafe de la Regence. One source (Ripley's Believe It or Not in 1944) says that the life he spared was US revolution patriot Thomas Paine (1737-1809), the author of the "Rights of Man." Paine's wife disguised herself in men's clothes, went to the cafe, and succeeded in engaging him in a chess game. She was supposed to have won two games. Robespierre would grant her any wish if she could beat him a third game. She did and asked for the life of her husband. (MORAL: Mom’s need to learn how to play chess, and play it well ! !">

  cu8sfan: Coming up this spring: 3 days in Paris. Any suggestions for chess based activities?

  GrahamClayton: Here is a link to an interesting game between Paris and Marseille in 1878. Paris gives Queen odds, and the checkmated side actually wins!

  HeMateMe: GC, you seem to have an unquenchable thirst for chess history. Are you a writer or a college history major, by chance? Tell us a bit about your self.

Thank you very much for your kind words. I am not a writer nor do I have a college history major. I just have an interest in history. I am a member of my local historical society. I follow sport, and am interested in history there too.

With chess, I think it is important to find out the circumstances behind a game, as well as details of the people who play those games. It makes the scores in the database more "human".
