Are males better than females?

The never solved question has recently rised in scope chess and aroused an outcry as GM's UK player Nigel Short was quoted to declare that men are more suitable than females on playing chess.

The quarrel is ancient like humanhood. Nigel Short, as matter of fact, said he was misunderstood as ho wanted just say the men and women are different and act with different skills, sometimes superiors to those of men.

According to a recent  scientific report in Pennsylvania University, women usually work with both brain's hemispheres while men seem to privilige the right hemisphere.

Personally  I think that both sexes do excel in something and that they are simply complentary one each other.

It's a useless competition try to make a rank of classification to establish which one is the better.

Eventually never forget that between the two litigants has the third, as the proverb says.

Chess mirror of life

It seems that also in Chessgame people are loosing the path of the ancient roman Ulpiano's maxim "honeste vivere et neminem laedere".

Leo Benedictus takes opportunity from an unpleasant occasion, which recently took place in Abu Dhabi, during the international chess tournement, to make a subtle analysis of both contemporanean society and chess GM's way of life.

The matter is related with the use (and with the abuse) of elettronical machines and sophisticated tools such as i-pads, i-phones,mobile telephones and various computering machines which so much have spread anywhere, in schools and working places, changing so deeply our habits.

Of course we agree with him when he says we must keep on going on a right behaviour in our day's competences, as well as in sports or in freetimes activicties, though is more and more difficult to do.

For those who love chess, furthermore, is not pleasant to see the cheateangs and frauding are affecting also playgames and sports.

The never ending love

Don’t ask me please
If I like you
You know I do
But only a platonic love
We Can live together
O My Elem
Nobody can built
Any love’s happiness
On the rubble
Of someone else’s   love
Eventually we both know
There is no rust
In the  day
Of the everlasting dawn.
There we’ll finally join
Our souls
For the eternal
never ending  love.

The tribute to Caesar

From Chapter 22 of Saint Mathew's Gospel

Verses 15-22

Some Fariseis  and some Erodianis
one day were sent by the Sanhedrin
 to set Jesus a Trap! 

–“Rabbì, we know  you are sincere”
–they started talking“and that there is no
Authority you are afraid of; 
Can you tell us, we please you, 
is it right or wrong to pay the  tributes
to the Romans?

Jesus said to them: - “Considering that 
you are trying me, upon a coin,
would you mind to bring me one of them?”

Those, in less than a  minute
  brought a roman coin to Him! 
 An effigy of  Emperor Augustus
 there was on a face;

on the other there was an inscription 
devoted to the Roman Empire's deeds. -

 “Whose  bust and effigy are these?” -

Jesus asked, giving back the coin on their hands!
They answered: - “Of Emperor Caesar Augustus!” -

-         “Then give back to  men what belongs to them 
and restore to God what belongs to God!” 
Jesus answered to the hypocrites!

And they were very surprised for His wiseness!

Engineer's delight

"It is a great profession. There is the fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer's high privilege.
The great liability of the engineer compared to men of other professions is that his works are out in the open where all can see them. His acts, step by step, are in hard substance. He cannot bury his mistakes in the grave like the doctors. He cannot argue them into thin air or blame the judge like the lawyers. He cannot, like the architects, cover his failures with trees and vines. He cannot, like the politicians, screen his shortcomings by blaming his opponents and hope the people will forget. The engineer simply cannot deny he did it. If his works do not work, he is damned...

On the other hand, unlike the doctor his is not a life among the weak. Unlike the soldier, destruction is not his purpose. Unlike the lawyer, quarrels are not his daily bread. To the engineer falls the job of clothing the bare bones of science with life, comfort, and hope. No doubt as years go by the people forget which engineer did it, even if they ever knew. Or some politician puts hs name on it. Or they credit it to some promoter who used other people's money . . . But the engineer himself looks back at the the unending stream of goodness which flows from his successes with satisfactions that few professions may know. And the verdict of his fellow professionals is all the accolade he wants."

I don't know

I don't know
if you show
your nudity
for  money
for hedonism
or for shallow pleasure

But I know
I took delight
at your performance
for my own shame

As matter of fact
we are a mere body
so your turpitude
is my turpitude 
in the cosmic unity
of our souls.

In another life

In another life
I would fall in love
with an harper
I would listen 
to her proves
at my daily trifles.

In another life 
I would understand
much better
the value of time
praising God
since my young days.

In another life 
I hope to see
the endless dawn.
