INSIGHT into the meaning of LIFE
In summer 1907, immediately after being introduced to the Autochrome process by Steichen (1879–1973), Stieglitz (1864–1946) used it while on vacation with the photographer Frank Eugene in Bavaria.

BE THE CHESSPLAYER, NOT THE CHESS PIECE
This Brazilian born American entrepreneur (born 1989) knows how to get onto the road to success! Pedro de Abreu has a deep respect for chess: “Chess is just really a medium through which we try to implement leadership and character… Chess will never be on the SAT. But the patience, analytical skills, the thinking skills, the ability to do those things will be skills that will be forever in demand.”
