    The Royal Historical Society presents:

    Professor Naomi Standen (Birmingham) – Colouring outside the lines: Eastern Eurasia without borders, from the Türks to the Mongols 

    We are still working out how to do global history, especially for premodern periods. How do we achieve the necessary shift in scale without falling back on standard definitions of categories like states, ethnicity, religion, urbanisation, when these are increasingly challenged at the specialist level? This paper draws from my current work on ‘A global history of eastern Eurasia, 600-1350’ to explore how global history can avoid reverting to familiar themes such as power, empires, money, wars and men. Useful techniques include thinking in layers rather than blocks, rejecting ethnocentricity, emphasising exchange over competition, avoiding narrative arcs, and not using words like ‘China’. My intention is to disrupt the reemergence in the new venue of global history of essentially national narratives. Meanwhile, some may worry that developing a ‘global Middle Ages’ risks becoming a neocolonial move: here I will suggest that by globalising our approaches to the premodern we may find alternatives to help us to recover the political initiative in the present day.

  6. Rationally Speaking | Official Podcast of New York City Skeptics - Current Episodes - RS 174 - John Ioannidis on “What happened to Evidence-based medicine?”

    Since June 1999 our all-volunteer cancer nonprofit Annie Appleseed Project, has posted the smaller studies in the Holistic world.

    The fact that BIG PHARMA and our ‘science’ has moved us to worship Level I studies (many drugs withdrawn, too little attention to adverse effects and NO standards for those issues), does not preclude the simple, natural approaches that rarely if ever get studied that way.

    It is a closed shop and that is unfortunate.Over the thousands of years of recorded human existence, many simple herbal and complex herbals (in China and other Eastern nations), have been used and WORKED.It is simplistic and pseudo-intellectual to only follow the schema designed to approve expensive and always harmful (sometimes helpful) Pharmaceuticals.

    Constant issue.This speaker and many others have shown that studies can be less than accurate, outcomes twisted or inappropriate to the patient population, adverse effects ignored, etc.

    Clinical trials in the current time, are filled with the HEALTHIEST of those with the ailment being tested.

    The drug gets approved, goes into the open marketplace and can cause harms that were not recorded.

    This is a constant issue.So much to criticize.

  10. 22:32 minutes)

    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!
