”Beauty comes from confidence…It’s amazing how attractive confidence is, how easily it can transform someone, as well as how easily it translates through the camera, to a photo.

WCC Tickets. The Price is Right?!
Apparently the price of a single-day ticket is 65 euros. Given that the average worker in the Sochi area can not easily afford this, one might ask why go to the trouble of discouraging spectators?

Once upon a time and place, there was a toy-maker, living alone, in a cabin up on a mountain. He created a wooden puppet, as an opponent for his games of chess. But can a puppet become a worthy opponent? Unless…
Many amateurs don’t know how to truly enjoy spectating a LIVE chess game. They turn on their chess engines…and then the MAGIC of the entire experience fizzles into digital ‘0’s and ‘1’s. You voluntarily remove yourself from a rewarding LIFE experience. It’s like listening to your i-pod in the middle of an opera.
