From experience and observation we feel sure that he will learn much faster in this manner than by taking odds. The latter method of practice engenders the habit on the part of the odds-receiver of exchanging pieces without any motive other than to reduce the forces. He may also with comparative impunity commit many mistakes anyone of which would surely cost him the game if he started on even terms, and the object of the student ought to be not so much to win games as to train himself to play correctly.
By taking odds a players loses the opportunity to observe the finer points of play of his adversary who on account of his inferiority in force cannot always afford to adopt the best strategy and is more apt to resort to lines of play which he knows to be unsound, relying on the inability of the weaker player to perceive the correct reply.

Moreover, the openings in games at odds are quite different from those adopted in even games and, therefore, the odds-receiver is not advancing in one important branch of Chess knowledge. Strictly speaking, odds play is somewhat foreign to the general principles of Chess, and, therefore, less conducive to improvement of the player—giver or receiver—than serious conduct of the game on proper even terms.
This would be so for the weaker party, if only because correctness of development must needs be missing, the whole theory of the opening being distorted and disturbed; and it would be so, for the stronger party, if only because of the habit of speculative and unsound combination odds play so naturally induces—a habit which if once acquired is so difficult of rejection, and whose effects cannot fail to prove inconvenient to its subject, when confronted by a foeman entirely worthy of his steel, and calling for the full exercise of all his powers.

Who's ever known a Motown singer to shortchange an audience? It all comes down to her excellent vocal style, control and tone, Rodman says, and she calls Knight a "master of dynamics. In , John J. He says she even "reduced some songs, or the phrases she sang, to snippets" to preserve her once-powerful voice.

So what will it be on Sunday? A soul legend embellishing for her home crowd? Or an icon keeping her vocals intact? She got the bug when she helped a friend who had a book stall in Abergavenny. She then ran a bookshop as part of an unsuccessful experiment to turn nearby Blaenavon into a books town. That ended in miserable failure.

But seven years ago, she set up Broadleaf Books, and this time the formula has worked. You have to have a passion. You can smell the newness.
The manager, Khadija Osman, graduated from university — she studied creative writing at Essex — last year. Osman, who grew up in a Somalian Muslim community in east London, says the shop will seek to champion writers from BAME backgrounds and stock a diverse range of books.
It also plans to run storytelling events and writing workshops for local children. Arlene Greene has worked for Tesco in Northern Ireland for 14 years. Greene makes the point that Northern Ireland has very few independent bookshops; she says the emphasis has tended to be on secondhand books.
That presents an opportunity to supermarkets, and she believes they are providing a worthwhile service. When the company was an independent supplier, they were given an input, but what to stock is now entirely a head-office decision, with the emphasis strictly on what will sell in large quantities. Greene finds this frustrating. It is famous, much loved and in danger of going under — or perhaps morphing into something else — in the face of online competition.
Sheringham has worked in the shop, which is still family owned, for 50 years. We had a very large stock of secondhand books built up over the years, but they are mostly sold on the internet now.

What Arthur Probsthain, who was a distinguished orientalist, would have made of it is a moot point. Trudy Elliott has been at Waterstones for a year. It was her first job after graduating; she studied graphic design but realised she preferred books. After that you have to go into management. Elliott has other gripes, too. Waterstones expects full flexibility from staff, even those on hour contracts who need to work other jobs to afford rent and bills.

We are still fighting our cause, though, and are looking at unionising and getting a stronger collective voice. Nia Owen started her predominantly Welsh-language bookshop Caban in the trendy Portcanna area of Cardiff in She opened it primarily for her two sons, both of whom have autism. But we had goodwill. We sort of played shop, and I think that has worked.
Owen, who grew up in a Welsh-speaking family in North Wales, sells Welsh-language books and English-language books with a Welsh connection. She has some paid helpers and other volunteers.
