On this ID the Future, mathematician William Dembski and host Eric Anderson explore whether design detection tools shed any light on the recent chess scandal involving world chess champion Magnus Carlsen and American grandmaster Hans Moke Niemann. Did Niemann cheat in a match where he beat Carlson, as some have claimed? There is no smoking gun in the case, so how might one determine if cheating occurred? At first glance the problem might seem far removed from the design detecting rules and tools Dembski laid out in his Cambridge University Press monograph The Design Inference. But actually there is some intriguing overlap. Is there a way to dig into the chess data and determine whether Niemann secretly used a computer chess engine to Read More › Source
— Have you thought about meeting your therapist outdoors and walk together while the therapeutic processes unfold? If not, it's time for an added natural healing component! Nature! This is not a new practice method. In fact, it is a very ancient concept. Aristotle and Socrates famously walked during lectures. Sigmund Freud often walked with patients during the analysis process. Although it is unknown why this form of teaching and therapy fell out of fashion, it is finally seeing a resurgence in popularity and utility. Not only do we have increasing evidence of the effectiveness of walking with your therapist, there are many practical reasons that this form of therapy may be right for you. Exercising, especially walking, provides well-established cardiovascular benefits and the incorporation of movement with the therapeutic conversation increases the integrative capacity of each therapy session. In other words, moving while talking makes short work of problem solving, gaining insight, and making positive changes in your life! Valeria interviews Layla Niemann — She is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with Waypoint Wellness Center located in Huntsville, Alabama. She earned her MSW at Alabama A & M University. Since starting out in the Social Services field in 2001, she has worked in the areas of Child Welfare, Child Forensic Interviewing, Hospice, Bereavement, Adoptions, and Geriatrics. Ms. Niemann enjoys weaving her myriad experiences into her clinical practice serving adults and children with special interest in PTSD, OCD, ADHD, Autism, and Sleep Disorders. Her approach is rooted in the belief that positive therapeutic relationships have the power to change individuals and the world around them. Ms. Niemann works diligently for racial and gender equality in her professional and personal life. She is a strong ally for LGBTQ+ individuals. She provides an affirmative approach and utilizes empowerment strategies throughout treatment. She is also a neurodiversity-affirmative therapist. Ms. Niemann is nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She is trained in multiple therapy modalities including CBT, mindfulness, and Cognitive Processing Therapy, among others. Ms. Niemann believes the power of movement and the outdoors to be profoundly healing. The bilateral movement of walking is particularly useful combined with therapeutic conversation. This approach is a wonderful way to fastrack problem-solving, getting unstuck, or working through a complex personal problem. She began to notice the benefit of walking with her clients when working in assisted living facilities and skilled nursing homes. She has now expanded this practice to walking with clients in her private practice. Ms. Niemann enjoys spending time in the outdoors with her family, fostering with Huntsville Animal Services, playing music, backpacking, and running.

Did you miss any of The Rich Zeoli Show this week? It's ok. We forgive you. But now is your chance to catch-up on all the action: Harvard University's endowment has shrunk by $2.3 billion (a 1.8% negative return)—this comes after the school announced it would discontinue investments within the fossil fuel industry. According to reporting from the Daily Wire, in a letter, Harvard Management Company CEO N.P. Narvekar wrote, Harvard's abandonment of new fossil fuel investments “weighed upon performance.” Similarly, BlackRock has seen its stock downgraded over its embrace of “environmental, social, and governance movement” investing strategies. Chess Grandmaster Hans Niemann has been accused of cheating—with some suspecting he has been using a “wireless device” that he “inserted into his rectum.” At the US Chess Championships, Niemann underwent a hilarious metal detector sweep. Niemann has admitted to cheating in the past. According to the Heritage Foundation's 2023 Index of U.S. Military Strength, the nation's military may not have the capability to successfully wage war in two areas of conflict simultaneously. Alarmingly, the report stated of the U.S. Airforce: “even though the munitions stockpile may have returned to a level that is capable of supporting a surge in expenditures associated with a conflict similar to the global war on terrorism—loosely encompassing operations in Afghanistan and Iraq—it probably would not support a peer-level fight that lasted more than a few weeks.” The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is denying they had anything to do with a series of postings warning of potential Bigfoot encounters in state parks. In a statement, the department emphasized: “Bigfoot is not real.”
The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Show (10/19/2022) 3:05pm- At a White House press conference on Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced the release of an additional 15 million barrels of oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). Biden denied that the new SPR release is politically motivated as we approach November 8th midterms. During the nearly 15-minute address, the President continually abdicated responsibility for increased gas prices. 3:20pm- The Wall Street Journal's Editorial Board documented how “the price of heating fuel will soar this winter, thanks to climate policies.” 3:30pm- In March of 2020, former President Donald Trump advocated on behalf of filling America's Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) while oil prices were low. However, Democrats opposed the measure—calling it a bailout for big oil. On Wednesday, when asked about Democrats' 2020 opposition, as the Biden administration relies upon reserves accumulated under Trump to temporarily lower gas prices, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre dismissed criticisms by arguing, “it was a different time then.” 3:40pm- Dr. EJ Antoni—Research Fellow for Regional Economics in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation—joins the show to talk about his recent New York Post editorial, “Average American is Losing $34k and Everything Else on Biden's Watch.” 4:05pm- According to reports from Fox News, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may issue guidance to add the COVID-19 vaccines to the childhood immunization schedule, which could potentially result in vaccination being required in order to attend school. Johns Hopkins Professor Dr. Marty Makary said, if the guidance is ultimately issued by the CDC, it would be despite no clinical data supporting vaccination against COVID-19 for young children being made available to the public. 4:15pm- According to the Daily Mail, when asked about COVID-19 boosters, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel stated: “If you're a 25-year-old, do you need an annual booster every year if you're healthy? You might want to… but I think it's going to be similar to flu, where it's going to be people at high-risk, people above 50 years of age, people with comorbidities, people with cancer and other conditions, people with transplants.” 4:30pm- Rich somehow manages to break his studio microphone mid-segment… 4:50pm- While appearing on MCNBC's Morning Joe, Democrat candidate for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams claimed that expanding abortion access is a way to potentially fix inflationary worries, stating: “having children is why you're worried” about a rise in prices. 5:05pm- Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre if the Biden Administration's attempt to put the oil industry out of business has had an impact on energy availability. 5:10pm- Chess Grandmaster Hans Niemann has been accused of cheating—with some suspecting he has been using a “wireless device” that he “inserted into his rectum.” At the US Chess Championships, Niemann underwent a metal detector sweep. Niemann has admitted to cheating in the past. 5:40pm- Daniel Turner—Founder & Executive Director of Power the Future—joins the show to discuss the Biden Administration's decision to release an additional 15 million barrels of oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). Turner explains, this is a “desperate election-time band-aid.” 6:05pm- Harvard University's endowment has shrunk by $2.3 billion (a 1.8% negative return)—this comes after the school announced it would discontinue investments within the fossil fuel industry. According to reporting from the Daily Wire, in a letter, Harvard Management Company CEO N.P. Narvekar wrote, Harvard's abandonment of new fossil fuel investments “weighed upon performance.” Similarly, BlackRock has seen its stock downgraded over its embrace of “environmental, social, and governance movement” investing strategies. 6:40pm- The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is denying they had anything to do with a series of postings warning of potential Bigfoot encounters in state parks.

Last month, Hans Niemann, a 19-year-old grandmaster chess player and rising star, defeated the reigning five-time world champion Magnus Carlsen in a round robin tournament game. After the match, Carlsen, who is also a grandmaster, dropped out of the competition and posted a tweet insinuating that Niemann had cheated. The accusation has rocked the chess world, and Niemann has confessed that he has cheated in online games in the past. But there is no evidence of him cheating in over-the-board games played face-to-face, let alone in the match against Carlsen. Today on Front Burner, Nate Solon, a chess master, data scientist and co-author of the book Evaluate Like a Grandmaster, brings us up to speed on the scandal.

A cheating scandal is currently rocking the world of chess, as World Champion Magnus Carlsen accuses the young American Hans Niemann of cheating. A bombshell new report has said that Niemann is likely to have cheated in over 100 games online, and uses data to support its argument. So how is statistics being used to catch cheats in chess - and just how prevalent might cheating be at the highest levels of the game? David Edmonds finds out.

Nuacht Mhall. Príomhscéalta na seachtaine, léite go mall. * Inniu an t-ochtú lá de mhí Dheireadh Fómhair. Is mise Niall Ó Siadhail. Bhí níos mó ná cúig mhíle duine i láthair ag imeacht plé maidir le todhchaí na hÉireann an deireadh seachtaine seo caite. D'eagraigh grúpa neamhbhrabúis darb ainm Ireland's Future an t-imeacht, a tharla sa 3arena i mBaile Átha Cliath agus bhí neart aoichainteoirí ann, idir pholaiteoirí agus daoine eile mór le rá. De réir Chomhaontú Aoine an Chéasta, is féidir le Rúnaí Stáit do Thuaisceart Éireann reifreann a fhógairt más léir go bhfuil níos mó ná leath an phobail sa Tuaisceart i bhfabhar Éireann Aontaithe. Meastar go bhfuil níos mó suime san athrú anois mar gheall ar imeacht na Ríochta Aontaithe ón Aontas Eorpach agus mar gheall ar an líon Caitliceach sa Tuaisceart a bheith níos airde ná an líon Protastúnach den chéad uair. Bronnadh Duais Nobel na Litríochta ar an údar Francach Annie Ernaux an tseachtain seo. Rinneadh tagairt don "mhisneach agus géire thomhaiste lena nochtann sí bunchúiseanna, coimhthíos agus srianta comhchoiteanna na cuimhne pearsanta." Is í Ernaux, a scríobhann saothair neamhfhicsin chomh maith le húrscéalta, an chéad scríbhneoir Francach a bhain an Duais ó bhí 2014 ann. Rugadh agus tógadh sa Normainn i dtuaisceart na Fraince í. Gheobhaidh Ernaux ciste de bheagnach milliún euro don duais, a bhronntar gach bliain ar an té a chruthaigh sárshaothar "i dtreo idéalach." Tá domhan na fichille trína chéile faoi láthair mar gheall ar thuairisc a d'fhoilsigh chess.com. Rinneadh fiosrúchán ar ardmháistir fichille ó Mheiriceá, Hans Niemann, tar éis líomhaintí a bheith curtha ina leith maidir le caimiléireacht sa spórt. Fuarthas go bhfuil an chuma air gur úsáid Niemann inneall fichille chun suas le céad cluiche a bhaint, cluichí a raibh duais airgid acu san áireamh. É sin ráite, baineann na líomhaintí le cluichí ar líne amháin agus tá cead fós ag Niemann leanúint ar aghaidh i gCraobhchomórtas Fichille na Stát Aontaithe, atá ar siúl in Saint Louis faoi láthair. * Léirithe ag Conradh na Gaeilge i Londain. Tá an script ar fáil i d'aip phodchraolta. * GLUAIS grúpa neamhbhrabúis - non-profit group aoichainteoirí - guest speakers géire thomhaiste - clinical acuity srianta comhchoiteanna - collective restraints ardmháistir fichille - chess grandmaster líomhaintí - allegations caimiléireacht - cheating

*) Putin says situation to 'stabilise', Ukraine presses counterattack Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he expects the situation to "stabilise" in Ukrainian regions annexed by the Kremlin, after Moscow suffered military setbacks. He has also ordered his government to seize control over Europe's largest nuclear power plant in the Russia-controlled region of Zaporizhzhia. Kiev has claimed victories over Russian troops in the eastern region of Luhansk, while the Kremlin has vowed to recapture territory lost in a lightning Ukrainian counteroffensive. *) North Korea fires two ballistic missiles, blames US drills 'escalation' North Korea has again fired two ballistic missiles, claiming its recent blitz of tests were necessary countermeasures against joint drills by the United States and South Korea. North Korea has accused the US of "escalating military tensions on the Korean peninsula" and threatening regional stability. South Korea, Japan and the US have ramped up joint military drills in recent weeks, including large-scale naval manoeuvres and anti-submarine exercises. *) WHO probes India syrups after dozens of children die in Gambia The World Health Organisation has issued an alert over four cough and cold syrups made by Maiden Pharmaceuticals in India. The UN health agency has said the four syrups in question "have been potentially linked with acute kidney injuries and 66 deaths among children" in The Gambia. It has also cautioned that contaminated medications may have been distributed outside of the West African country, warning that global exposure was "possible". *) Three 'click chemistry' pioneers win Nobel Prize The Nobel Chemistry Prize has been awarded to a trio of chemists from the US and Denmark who laid the foundation for a more functional form of chemistry. Americans Carolyn Bertozzi and Barry Sharpless, together with Denmark's Morten Meldal, have been honoured "for the development of click chemistry...," the jury has said. Click chemistry "is an elegant and efficient chemical reaction that is now in widespread use," the jury said. Among many other uses, it is utilised in the development of pharmaceuticals. *) Grandmaster Hans Niemann defends reputation after cheating claims American international grandmaster Hans Niemann has said he "won't back down," after chess platform chess.com reported he has "probably cheated more than 100 times" in online games. After a victory in the US Chess Championship on Wednesday, Niemann said the game he had just won "spoke for itself and showed the chess player that I am". Norwegian world champion Magnus Carlsen last week accused 19-year-old Niemann of cheating in a major controversy.

¿Se ha colado un tramposo en el ajedrez de élite mundial o estamos ante una vulneración de la presunción de inocencia de dimensiones virales y cuyas consecuencias aún estamos por ver? Hoy nos metemos en el gran jardín en el que se ha convertido el ajedrez desde que su actual campeón mundial y uno de los mejores de todos los tiempos, Magnus Carlsen, se ha retirado de un campeonato tras una derrota, primero, y ha abandonado la partida tras solo dos movimientos, después, en otro campeonato, contra Hans Niemann. Un joven ajedrecista (19 años) Gran Maestro desde 2021 y que ha tenido un meteórico ascenso de ELO, que ahora, con el dedo acusador de Carlsen, se está mirando con lupa y ha generado mucho debate en redes. El organismo rector, la FIDE, también ha entrado en juego con un comunicado demandado pruebas para las que hacer una investigación imparcial, y, por si fuera poco jaleo, Elon Musk se asomó a la polémica apuntando en que quizás Niemann podría haber usado un dispositivo vibratorio anal…. Seguimos sin una prueba concreta, pero la información ha crecido exponencialmente y queremos analizarla con dos referentes, expertos en ajedrez, como Leontxo García, experto analista de El País, y David Martínez (Divis), entrenador de ajedrez, autor de Chessable y comentarista en Chess24. Y ampliamos la mirada con los juegos de mesa con nuestro experto Ismael Alonso para indagar en las trampas y los tramposos en otro tipo de tableros, dados y mazos, diferentes del ajedrez.

El ‘caso Niemann' acusado de tramposo por el campeón del mundo de ajedrez, Magnus Carlsen, lleva coleando todo el mes de septiembre sin pruebas que demuestren los hechos. En Por Fin No Es Lunes queremos repasar la jugada y el debate de las trampas en este juego milenario con el periodista especializado en ajedrez Leontxo García.
World chess champion Magnus Carlsen has for the first time openly accused fellow player Hans Niemann of cheating. In a statement, he said he believed Niemann had "cheated more — and more recently — than he has publicly admitted", though offered no evidence. Carlsen had previously made veiled accusations against Niemann, who beat him this month in a major upset. Niemann, 19, has denied cheating in competitive chess and has accused Carlsen of trying to ruin his career. KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Nick Kopaloff, co-director of the Netanya Chess Club, about the accusation of cheating.

There is a minor storm in the chess world over alleged cheating. It all began on September 4 when a 19-year-old grandmaster named Hans Niemann defeated world champion Magnus Carlsen in an over-the-board game in a tournament in the US. Following this shocking loss to a player rated much lower, Carlsen withdrew from the tournament - something that almost never happens in a top event. He offered no explanations except to insinuate that Niemann had cheated. Niemann has said that he has cheated in online chess in the past but is clean now. But Chess.com was quick to ban him. When Carlsen and Niemann met again in an online event on September 19, Carlsen resigned after just one move, and has said he will not play against Niemann. Meanwhile, the chess world's top anti-cheating expert Ken Regan has analysed not only Niemann's win over Carlsen but also all his games from 2020, and found no evidence of cheating. Is Carlsen justified in making these insinuations without any evidence? Does the FIDE have adequate safeguards in place to ensure players don't throw random allegations around? And how easy, or difficult, is it to cheat in chess today?
Perpetual Chess is back with another bonus pod discussing the ongoing Magnus Carlsen/Hans Niemann controversy. The major news of the week was that GM Magnus Carlsen issued a statement on Monday confirming that he suspects GM Hans Niemann of cheating. To discuss the story, I am honored to be joined by 2 Grandmaster guests who offer significant domain expertise beyond the chess world. First up is GM Jonathan Rowson, a renowned author and philosopher and the 3 time Chess Champion of the UK. My conversation with Jonathan is centered around the human element of this story, and how we can hope to avoid biases in our interpretation of the information at hand. Following GM Rowson, I am joined by Dr. David Smerdon. GM Smerdon is a 7 time Chess Olympian for his native Australia, and an award winning chess author. David has worked with both Dr. Kenneth Regan and also the Chess.com cheat detection team. David's primary field is development economics, but he has a statistical background and devotes significant time to chess-related research. As we discuss, in addition to chess cheating, David has published a paper related to gender issues in chess. I found it helpful to hear the grounded perspective of 2 of the chess world's most insightful thinkers. As always, timestamps of topics discussed can be found below. 0:00- Intro and review of recent events: Sub to Perpetual Chess Linkfest 5:00- Perpetual Chess is brought to you in part by Chessable.com.

Zmyslom impaktoru DART totiž bolo zistiť, či vo vesmíre dokážeme odkloniť letiacu planétku a či by sme sa takto vedeli brániť pred telesom, ktoré by z kozmu smerovali priamo k našej Zemi. Zrážka s planétkou Dimorphos sa odohrala v noci na utorok. Či misia vyšla, čo sme sa pri nej naučili a prečo sme sa do nej pustili. Tomáš Prokopčák sa pýta Ondreja Podstupku.

Svetový šachový šampión Magnus Carlsen totiž pred nejakým časom prehral so zázračným tínedžerom Hansom Niemanom, potom trúsil zvláštne poznámky, následne pri ďalšom zápase urobil jediný ťah a odišiel od stola... nasledovalo priznanie, že Niemann v minulosti ako dieťa podvádzal, obvinenie, že tak rýchlo by sa nedokázal zlepšovať a najnovšie aj Carlsonovo vyhlásenie, že Niemann podvádza stále a on s podvodníkmi hrať nebude.

I snart 10 år har norske Magnus Carlsen siddet på tronen som verdens bedste skakspiller. For nyligt tabte han – for første gang længe - til den 19-årige Hans Niemann, og antydede efterfølgende, at Niemann havde snydt. Det satte gang i fantasifulde teorier om alt fra supercomputere til signaler fra vibrerende analkugler. Men kan Hans Niemann have snydt? Eller er Magnus Carlsen bare en dårlig taber? Og kan skak-spillet overleve i en verden, hvor snyd og kunstig intelligens kan slå verdens bedste? Dagens gæst er stormester i skak og skakskribent hos Politiken Sune Berg Hansen. Lyt med.

Accusations of cheating, an offer to play naked to prove fairness, a chess great and a rowdy teenage disruptor. Welcome to the wild world of professional chess where Norwegian megastar Magnus Carlsen and New York upstart Hans Niemann are embroiled in a controversial feud. Today, ABC Sport Daily's Patrick Stack unpicks this unusual scandal with chess Grandmaster David Smerdon. Featured: David Smerdon, Chess Grandmaster.
“It must be embarrassing for the World Champion to lose to me — I feel bad for him!” said Hans Niemann, after the defeat of Magnus Carlsen on September 5, 2022. Carlsen's subsequent withdrawal from the Sinquefield Cup - the first in his career - followed by a cryptic tweet suggesting Niemann cheated, have put the chess world on edge.Five days later, Chess.com - one of the largest online chess sites - banned Hans Niemann from its tournaments after accusations arose that Niemann had cheated in online chess tournaments. (Adding to the political optics, Chess.com is in the process of acquiring Carlsen's company, the Magnus Group)Today, we are gracious to have IM Ken Regan on the podcast to help unravel this situation and discuss his methodology for detecting cheating in the chess world. When the chess world suspects someone of having cheated in a tournament, Ken Regan is the expert who gets the call.Using a database of tens of thousands of top-level games, Kenneth Regan, himself an international chess master, has devised a program that can help determine whether a player is playing like a human or like a computer.A member of the Anti-Cheating Committee of the World Chess Federation from 2013-14, he helped write and edit guidelines to prevent cheating in professional chess. He continues to serve as a consultant to the committee and previously served as an expert witness for the French Chess Federation, the Bulgarian Chess Federation and other governing bodies of chess.Additional topics include:How does the chess rating system work?

The chess world has been rocked this week by the sudden withdrawal of GM Magnus Carlsen in the early rounds of the Sinquefield Cup. Although only explained by a cryptic tweet, this unprecedented action has been widely interpreted as an allegation of foul play by GM Hans Niemann, who had defeated Magnus in the prior round.. This has been a complex story with tentacles reaching all over the chess world and making headlines beyond it. In this podcast I briefly attempt to catch listeners up on the key events, and then welcome IM Greg Shahade to try to provide a bit of clarity about what we know right now. Greg is the founder of the Pro Chess League and the US Chess School and in the latter role has observed Hans' chess talent as he has risen up the ranks. Greg shares his perspective of Hans' personality, and of the overall story.
