    Duke alumnus Kassa Korley went back to his stomping grounds to take a shot at a GM norm. Since his graduation the the Raleigh-Durham campus a few years ago, Korley has been seeking invitationals, both at home and in Europe. The New York native currently plays under the Danish flag, the home of his paternal grandparents.

    IM Kassa KorleyPhoto by CCC

    In actuality, there were four norms tournaments Group A/B (GM) and Group C/D (IM). Korley competed in Group B of the GM/IM Invitational after having a solid 5/9 result in the March GM norm edition. The June events were part of the Charlotte Chess Festival which also hosted an open called the Carolina Classic and an elite chess camp.

    Korley, now 24, has been covered extensively at The Chess Drum over the years (making master, IM title) and still has one of the most popular interviews at the site.

    (Listen 22:32 minutes)

    However, he recently granted an outstanding 90-minute interview to Ben Johnson’s Perpetual Podcast. Some very profound insights on his pursuit of the GM title and the pro and cons of totally dedicating one’s self to chess versus taking a more gradual approach. He has also been doing a series of his own videos which you can find at his YouTube channel. He is also popular on lichess.org and Twitch (handle is Kassablanca) and plays banter blitz with interesting commentary.

    “I made a choice to go to college. I made a choice to work in ‘real world.’ I made a choice NOT to invest everything in chess. Theoretically, one could consider investing everything into chess and being a 2650… and still struggling in the real grand scheme of things.”

    ~IM Kassa Korley

    Over the years, we have watched Korley grow into a young man, but still have the ambition and drive to improve his game. His skills were on full display in the tournament as he only dropped one game (to fellow IM Farai Mandizha). He scored +2 against the three GMs. After the tournament Korley, got 6.5/9, pocketed a GM norm and earned a career-high rating of 2556 USCF.

    He is one of five players of African descent to cross 2500 USCF. Maurice Ashley reached 2606 USCF while other players eclipsing 2500 are: FM William Morrison (2535), IM Farai Mandizha (2515), and IM Emory Tate (2508). He mentioned earning the GM title and stated that there need to be more African-American GMs. Well-stated. There will be more and Kassa is on his way!

  4. 3Timothy Garton Ash – What went wrong with liberalism? And what should liberals do about it? | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    The Political Quarterly presents:

    The 2018 Political Quarterly lecture

    Professor Timothy Garton Ash (Oxford) – What went wrong with liberalism? And what should liberals do about it? 

    For at least two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, some version of liberalism was ideologically hegemonic in most democracies and largely set the agenda of globalisation. As we now face a global wave of anti-liberal populism and authoritarianism we are bound to ask how far – and in what ways – that liberalism contributed to this dramatic reversal. Many analysts have pointed to the growing inequality and shattering financial crisis, attributing them to the simultaneous financialisation and globalisation of capitalism, and to policies often characterised as ‘neoliberalism’. But should other, and perhaps deeper, features of contemporary liberalism share some of the blame?

    Having made the right analysis, what lessons should liberals (with a small l, including liberal centre-right and centre-left) learn? Do liberals have any good answers to populism at home and authoritarianism abroad? How can we fight back?

    In the 2018 Political Quarterly lecture, Timothy Garton Ash, Professor of European Studies at Oxford, Guardian columnist and lifelong liberal, addresses one of the central questions of our time.

    ‘The Backdoor Broadcasting Company provides a really excellent service. We rely on them to record many of our events, and

    we’ve been delighted with the results. The sound quality is superb, mainly because a skilled technician is always on hand during the recordings. The layout of the website helps a great deal

    and I find the presentation of slides accompanying speakers’ talk extremely useful. The sheer range of material covered is very impressive. This is a company going from strength to strength.
