Alex’s 2nd New Awesome Chess Variant





  1. On each turn, player flips a coin or roll a six-sided die.
  2. If a player flips a heads, or rolls an even number, then he or she gets to take two turns.
  3. If a player flips a tails, or rolls an odd number, then he or she only takes one turn.
  4. If a player is to take two turns and is put in check, or checkmate on the first turn, then he or she may sacrifice a pawn. This nullifies the status of the king.
  5. The rest of the rules are the same.

To Introduce Wild Animals for Ecologic Healing

 


It is no secret that humans have possibly stressed the environment beyond repair.
We are currently in the middle of a mass extinction because of human misdeeds.
I presuppose that it is a fallacy to believe that humans can never help ecosystems.  The suggested fallacy many believe, heaven forfend, is that it is human activity by nature makes us in a way that we humans must permanently destroy more than we are able to mend due to human iniquities.  It is time for humanity to step up and take more effort to do good by nature because too often we wait, which causes dreaded population bottlenecks for species, making recovery even harder because it diminishes necessary antifragile genetic variability to a population.


If we reach out, we should not fear that animals will become dependent on our support.  We as humans should think of helping animals succeed as a job, and in addition humans should demand pay for such work, as wild animal breeders, such that wild animal breeding could be both a job creator and a human niche.
 
While not optimal, I believe that it could still be good to help both suffering species and non-endangered species.  Too often humans have waited to the extent that our activity creates a population bottleneck.  Rather, I suggest that we breed animals, especially harmless animals, with the hope of having them enter their natural niche out of captivity.


I even suggest that with the help of scientific research, in order to fight the toll of invasive species, possibly we could also safely introduce more invasive species, except the new invasive species, would be less troublesome, as they would be natural predators functioning to reduce the total damage done to indigenous species.   

In the future, we may end up having to help species in a multifaceted battlefront, including efforts to reduce toxic carbon emissions.  This is job #1 for humanity today.  We need to step up to the plate and assume a role of encouraging bio-friendly activities that heal the world, rather than giving up on ideals.

Spelling: In Favor of More Inclusive Dictionaries


When it comes to spelling, I hate vowels.  In English, the correct spelling of too many words hangs on vowels that usually don’t affect the meaning of the word, although there is a great difference in some words as affect, and effect.  In a definition, the vowel letters can be trivial and stumbling blocks even for someone who is well educated.  So what’s holding us back from accepting multiple spellings of words, such that we rewrite our English dictionaries, including multiple spellings of words like difference and, differance, or tomorrow, and tomarrow, etc.?

Newly Invented #Chess #Checkers Variant

By Alex and Craig Hamilton





Board Setup:  One player plays with chess pieces.  The other player has checkers pieces.


For the player with chess pieces:
  • There is the same number of chess pieces, 16, for the player who has chess pieces.
  • The King is white, and he goes on his color.  The Queen is black, and she goes on her color.
  • Each chess piece, black or white, goes on it’s color.  For example, the Castle on the right side of the board is white, while the Castle on the left side of the board is black.
  • The chess pieces move and capture as they would in a normal game of chess.
  • The way for the chess player to win is to eliminate all of the checkers on the board.


For the player with checkers:
  • In this variant, the checkers player controls 36 checkers.
  • These 36 checkers cover the the checkers player’s entire half of the board.
  • Each checker goes on it’s color, black or red.
  • The player with checkers plays opposite the side of the player with chess pieces.
  • The checkers move as checkers normally move.
  • The way for the checkers player to win is to put the chess player’s King in checkmate.


Please note:  There are 2 tokens used in the checker player’s that represent two missing red checkers.

Invention: Smile for the Computer


Dedicated computer users sometimes tend to have unnaturally drab faces. This is the “Not Face.”


Those with a Not Face may feel good or even bad inside. However, the electronically driven crowd is not communicating as good they should be; too many Not Faces everywhere.

I know this because some of the darkest times I went through, I had a smile on my face, all the while I was feeling miserable inside. Thus, there is a difference between smiling and feeling good.  Emotions come mostly from the inside. Smiling faces are superficial, and really only just muscles contracting according to cultural norm, or just plain conditioning.

Appearance is only skin deep, such that computer programmers should work on helping to condition people with dreary, "Not Faces" and to give them superficial help, and in addition to that probably make good money on it.

As an aside: Why muscle builders have neglected, to my knowledge, working on their facial muscles for the sake of giving themselves a smile is surprising.


The ultimate moneymaker idea is that someday faces meet the gym using a facial exercise program.

Doctor Help: Save Patients on Life Support



Matter is mostly empty space.   Because of that, although currently difficult to accomplish, it is a given by the primitive yet great scientist, "Ernest Rutherford" that matter is able pass through other matter.   Scientists should already know that.

Therefore, if matter can pass through matter it is a given that food can be beamed into a patient’s stomach, especially when patients are at risk on life support, or maybe after surgery.

 In order for the food to get in, it would have to be extremely refined.

Stranded Cape Cod Sea Turtles


The rate of sea turtle stranding in Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts is at epic proportions, threatening sea turtles with extinction. The Mass Audubon Society in Wellfleet MA is trying to help stranded turtles survive. A major problem common to sea turtles is that they get off their migratory course and strand, such that without help, many die too young in Cape Cod Bay.
A possible fix to help sea turtles may be employment of a large magnet that would pull the turtles so that they never enter Cape Cod Bay.  All we need to do is get turtles out of the Bay, and then nature should take care of the rest.  Thus, I am not suggesting that it is the turtles’ problem.  It is our problem, and fixing it comes down needing the courage to work to help the turtles from extinction.  Thus, I suggest that human activity causes turtle stranding.
I suggest using model scales and testing to help determine how this technology should work.
Sea turtles migrate partially because that is what a magnet in their brain pulls them to do.  Thus I suggest possibly the natural magnet of sea turtles has been confused due to the huge iron magnetic presence of barges using the Cape Cod Canal.
