UTD 12.5; UB 3.5 IN TRANSATLANTIC CUP MATCH PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Thu, Oct 30 2008 (22:57)

On Halloween The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) defeated the University of Belgrade (UB) 12.5 to 3.5 in the third annual Transatlantic Cup match. The match started late, because University of Belgrade had already switched to standard time. So 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST, i.e. UTD time) was perceived to be 11:30 a.m. by UB. Nevertheless, dignitaries were present at both UTD (such as Undergraduate Dean Michael Coleman) and at UB (GM Svetozar Gligoric) to make ceremonial opening moves for the 16-board match by 1:15 p.m. CST. Games were played via the Internet Chess Club. To view the games, log in to your account and type "fi UTDUB". Several of my current and former students spectated at, or played in, the chess match today. Also present were the UTD cheerleaders and the mascot, Temoc.

CHESS LIFE, BREAKING DAWN PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, Oct 10 2008 (10:17)
At the beginning of August, I piggy-backed my own book signing onto that of the best-seller Breaking Dawn (Stephenie Meyer), because that book has a chess queen and pawn on its cover. Chess Life has now published my article about that book launch evening (have to register to read full article). Part of my article reads, "At the mall entrance, I had a book signing for my own two books, Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators and Science, Math, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving." See my books at here and here.

I just returned from Encyclo-Media. My publisher, Libraries Unlimited, paid for my trip there. I spent most of my time on both days (Thursday and Friday) at my publisher's booth. The booth started with 20 copies of Children and Chess, 20 copies of Science, Math, Checkmate, and 20 chess sets/boards ordered from American Chess Equipment. Buyers got a free chess set and chess board if they purchased one or two books. At
