Change Your Mind; Change Your Luck When I was a young man, even a teenager for that matter, I always had an optimism that was hard for others to overcome. Even in the midst of the all the negative influences from family and peers, this positive optimism was difficult to beat down. I was powerful, I was lucky, life was magic. I remember it like it was yesterday. It didn't matter how many times I was chased home. It didn't matter how many times the girls bullied me. It didn't matter how many times my father beat me. It didn't matter how many times the teachers picked on me. I just knew; This is not it! There is more greatness to come! When I was kicked out and made to join the military, I wasn't feeling particularly lucky at that time but I still had that positive attitude. Sure there...

  TOKYO, THE UNREAL CITY MARIKO NAGAI Here, in Tokyo, when an outsider comes, they come with an image of Tokyo: a metropolis, futuristic in its neon signs and high-rise buildings: the efficiency and punctuality of its people and all they touch: where the old ways of living smoothly inhabit the place of the modern: the East but not the East, and the West but not the West. Images they bring with their suitcases often collide with the real, and reality is as elusive as dreams, for this is the city made up of the dreams of the outsiders, a phantom, a city built with the imagination. People take on the city; they recreate it, redefine it. But they do not know that they are living in a dreamscape of their own making. That they are bring...

Apple announced the third iteration of its smartwatch on September 22, 2017, so we expect we'll have to wait until at least September 2018 to see the launch of the Apple Watch 4. As the Apple Watch 2 was released a year earlier in September 2016, that’s our best guess - but it's quite likely. We could be waiting even longer though as the gap between the original Apple Watch and the Apple Watch 2 was over a year at 17 months. There’s no word on the Apple Watch Series 4's price, but it’s likely to be around the same as the Apple Watch 3 currently is, meaning a starting price of around £329 / $329 / AU$459 for the smaller 38mm version. That said, the Apple Watch 3 actually had a lower launch price than the Apple Watch 2, so with all the extra tech likely to be found in the Apple Watc

Khanty Mansiysk, Russia, Sep 19.- Russian Grandmaster Peter Svidler on Monday won the title of the World Chess Cup, after defeating his compatriot Alexander Grischuk in the finals. Svidler, with white pieces, on Monday tied after 38 moves of a Sicilian Defense, with a Moscow variation. The draw was a guarantee for Svidler to win the world title by 2.5 over 1.5 points, because he previously had one victory in the first match, and two draws in the second and third matches. Svidler, 35, and also six-time champion of Russia, replaced Israeli Boris Gelfand as world champion, and qualifies for the next Candidates Tournament to the World Chess Championship 2012.
