It is easy to understand why the English opening is very popular at all levels, from club player up to Grandmaster level. The variations are less forcing and superior chess skill is required to outwit your opponents in the middlegame. In the English, white plays 1.c4 and fianchettos the white kings bishop to g2. Like all good chess openings, this fights for control of the centre and posts the English Bishop on the long diagonal g2-a8. Many people view the opening as rather dull, but this is a misnomer-in fact, there are many sharp pawn sacrifices and attacking lines which have been found in recent times which give the opening some bite. As such, the English Opening is an opening that can suit a wide range of playing styles. Success in the English is based upon understanding the plans and ideas available within this interesting opening. The games in this DVD will provide with exactly that-the armoury to play the English Opening as white with confidence! Includes all of blacks main responses to the English Opening 1.c4: 1) 1.c4 e5 2) 1.c4 c5 Symmetrical English 3) 1.c4 setups against Slav, Kings Indian, Grunfeld 4) 1.c4 b6 and other minor lines IM Lorin D Costa is from London, England.

Honest, objective, and informed political debates are all too rare in today´s polarized and partisan climate. Public policy is increasingly driven by ideology while political spin, distortions, and even demonizing opponents by disseminating outright lies are routine practice from Washington to the local city council. Super-heated and hyper-partisan rhetoric, increasingly homogeneous political and ideological communities, and the public´s spotty knowledge about our political system all undermine informed and considered responses to policy debates. This audiobook identifies common areas of confusion or misunderstanding about our political system, clarifying many distortions of accepted history, constitutional law, economics, and science to help listeners distinguish documented facts from the different conclusions and interpretations that may be drawn from those facts. Sheila Suess Kennedy aims to create a more informed electorate and to better ground debates in fact, from Capitol Hill to the family dinner table. Talking Politics? What You Need to Know before Opening Your Mouth provides a solid starting point from which Americans can build more persuasive arguments for their preferred policies, whatever they may be, and will interest students of political science, civics, and history, from high school to undergraduates, and the general public interested in politics and informed discussion. 1.

When Peggy McBride moves to Dare Valley, Colorado, the last thing she wants is to meet a man. If she´s learned one thing from her divorce, it´s that love is a messy business, and as a single mom and the new deputy sheriff, she has her hands full. But when hotel magnate and poker player Mac Maven moves to town, she becomes enthralled by the very last man she would ever consider dating... Millionaire Mac Maven has come to Dare with ambitious plans for his new project, the restoration of The Grand Mountain Hotel as a boutique poker venue. Only one person offers him a less than warm welcome: Deputy Sheriff Peggy McBride, who is dead set against gambling. But although Peggy´s a fierce opponent, Mac senses a tenderness and passion within her that he longs to free. Having helped his sister raise her teenage son, he understands Peggy, and can see past her tough-as-nails exterior. When a threat to Mac´s hotel surfaces, he and Peggy must join forces to find out who´s responsible. Working together ignites the white-hot connection between them, and their cooperation takes a decidedly personal turn. But can Mac convince Peggy to set their differences aside and take a gamble on love? Author´s Note: All books can easily be heard as stand-alone stories. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Em Eldridge.
