European confidence in Aussie business events industry growing

first_imgAustralia has experienced one of its strongest representations at IMEX Frankfurt, reaffirming its focus on the United Kingdom and Europe markets and indicating that the region’s business confidence is showing signs of recovery. The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) reports have shown that five of the major business travel markets; UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, will increase their business travel spending for the first time since 2010, indicating that the market is on the rise. Together with Tourism Australia, 14 delegates will be representing Australia’s business events industry at IMEX Frankfurt, in showcasing the country’s best offerings in the MICE market. “These are just a few of the reasons why Australia consistently ranks as a preferred business events destination and we are continually investing in our world-class business events capabilities to uphold our reputation for excellence, and we are proud to showcase this at IMEX Frankfurt,” Business Events Australia general manager Penny Lion said. Source = ETB News: Lana Bogunovichcenter_img “The UK and Europe have traditionally been strong markets for Australia’s business events sector, so it is pleasing to see the region’s key confidence indicators starting to improve.” Australia will host some of the largest incentive events this year, from industries including health, pharmaceutical and insurance, and a number of significant group incentive bookings are confirmed for 2015 and beyond.   Showing strong performance against other destinations in terms of safety, security, quality of event facilities, accommodation and dining, recent research has also confirmed Australia’s global reputation as a business destination is becoming increasingly important.last_img read more

State of the Servicing Industry

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing Altisource FHA Foreclosure HOUSING Huzu loans mortgage Patrick McClain Servicing Travis Britsch Vendors 2018-12-20 Scott_Morgan State of the Servicing Industry December 20, 2018 753 Views center_img Delinquencies and foreclosures are about to make a comeback and single-source vendors are poised to become the future of servicing, according to Altisource.In “The State of the Servicer Industry in 2018,” the firm sees the combination of high home prices and oft-risen interest rates as a sign that servicers will soon see an increase in delinquency and foreclosure rates in their FHA portfolios.And servicers seem to be aware of this “inflection point.” Nearly three-quarters of servicers Altisource surveyed said they expect their FHA portfolios to increase within the next two years.FHA loans already have increased, after a wave of interest early this year from buyers with lower credit who capitalized on the FHA’s Claims Without Conveyance of Title, or CWCOT, program’s more lenient downpayment requirements.With the upswing in FHA loans, though, comes the increased risk of defaults in FHA portfolios, especially as rates continue to climb. And while price escalation has been slowing down in the latter half of 2018, values remain out of reach for average and below-average earners in many markets, where wage growth has not necessarily caught up.With the possibility of more defaults looming, servicers say they are overwhelmingly likely to take a single-vendor approach to managing multiple services. Nine in 10 servicers, in fact, told Altisource that they are strongly leaning towards a single-source vendor, with two-thirds citing efficiency and compliance management as the main reasons.Single-source vendors are also an increasingly appealing option simply because of their prevalence. The sector grew as the housing market recovered from the crash and the glut of properties once maintained by small networks of vendors gave way to consolidated resources.If there’s a hangup for servicers, it’s that they’re having a lot of trouble finding single-source vendors they feel comfortable working with. Altisource says more than half of the servicers surveyed said they had trouble finding good vendors for trustee and auction services.That said, 73 percent of servicers said they are using third-party as part of their CWCOT program, mostly because those vendors provide end-to-end services. But 57 percent say they wish the data analytics these vendors used were not as efficient or effective as they could be. Sharelast_img read more

Its no coincidence the Cardinals are thin at both

first_imgIt’s no coincidence the Cardinals are thin at both of those positions Wilks mentioned. It doesn’t hurt to flood both with possibilities.With all players wearing T-shirts and shorts and only one day behind them, Wilks was hesitant to form any judgments, but the highlights of the day included a long pass from first-round pick Josh Rosen to second-round pick Christian Kirk, and an interception by sixth-round pick Chris Campbell.Rookie mini-camp runs Friday through Sunday at the team’s Tempe headquarters.NON-ROOKIE IN ROOKIE CAMPWide receiver Greg Little was among the players on tryouts at rookie mini-camp on Friday. The Cleveland Browns selected Little in the second round (No. 59) of the 2011 NFL Draft. Little caught 155 passes in three seasons for Cleveland and scored eight touchdowns.He caught six passes for Cincinnati in 2014. He was released by the Bengals on Oct. 31, 2015, signed a future contract with Buffalo on Aug. 30, 2016 and was later released by the Bills. He was out of the NFL the past two seasons and hasn’t played a game in three seasons.“He was out there making some plays and he stood out a little bit,” Wilks said. “It was good to be able to get him out here. I know he’s excited about the opportunity that he has. Hopefully, he’ll continue to make the best of it throughout the weekend and we’ll see exactly what happens on Sunday.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories COLEMAN SIGNINGThe Cardinals signed fullback Derrick Coleman to a one-year contract on Wednesday. Former coach Bruce Arians didn’t use a traditional fullback. Coleman spent last season with the Atlanta Falcons. He was with the Seattle Seahawks from 2012-15.“Going against him in that division, in the (NFC) South, the guy has proven himself,” said Wilks, who was a Carolina assistant from 2012-17. “Within our system, a fullback is a part of that offense … that’s a major part of what we are doing.”Coleman, who lost most of his hearing at age 3, is the first legally deaf offensive player in NFL history. Cardinals Senior Vice President of Media Relations Mark Dalton was asked Friday how the team would conduct interviews with Coleman. Dalton said Coleman reads lips so well that you can’t even tell he has a hearing disability.CAMPBELL’S VERSATILITYChris Campbell played safety in high school. He believes he can help the Cardinals with his versatility but for the moment, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Penn State product is competing in a crowded house at the cornerback spot.“If you follow my history you know I like corners with a lot of length; guys that are long, physical, that can use those attributes, particularly at the line of scrimmage in bump and run,” Wilks said. “We can’t really do in this particular setting but he made a nice play today on the ball, the interception at the end of one-on-one period.” TEMPE, Ariz. – Including defensive lineman Moubarak Djeri of the German Football League, the Cardinals brought 25 NFL rookie free agents to their rookie mini-camp, along with players on rookie tryouts.That’s an unusually high number.“We had high grades on a lot of these guys and they were sitting there,” coach Steve Wilks explained. “When you look at some of the depth at certain positions, particularly at wide receiver, that was one of the reasons why we brought some guys in, probably more than usual, and the same thing probably at the safety position.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img After the interception, the coaches had to yell at Campbell to return the ball all the way to the end zone, which he subsequently did.EXTRA POINTS— Third-round pick Mason Cole lined up at center a lot on Friday, but Wilks said the Cardinals still view him as both a center and a guard. “That was the one thing that attracted us to him was just that position flexibility,” Wilks said.— The Cardinals released Harlan Miller on Thursday, leaving little experience behind starters Budda Baker and Antoine Bethea. Wilks was asked if the team plans to add another veteran safety.“I think right now, what we have on the roster is appealing to us as a staff,” Wilks said. “But I will say this: We’re going to continue to evolve and be aggressive in always trying to get the right mix. I told the guys today, ‘Nobody’s going to get complacent around here. It’s not a free lunch.’“So we’re going to continue to work hard and we’re going to continue to find guys that are going to make us better. If that means bringing guys in and out, that’s what we’re going to continue to do.” – / 12 Arizona Cardinals’ first-round draft pick Josh Rosen (3) stands with his teammates during NFL football rookie camp Friday, May 11, 2018, in Tempe, Ariz.

FILE In this July 26 2010 file photo soul sing

first_img FILE – In this July 26, 2010 file photo, soul singer Aretha Franklin poses for a portrait in Philadelphia. Franklin died Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018 at her home in Detroit. She was 76. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File) TORONTO – Hearing the powerful voice of Aretha Franklin over the airwaves of 1980s pop radio left a permanent impression on Canadian singer Jully Black.Hardly eight years old at the time, Black remembers even at that age she recognized the rarity of a black woman being played on a Top 40 radio station in Toronto.“To hear a soulful voice come through gave me hope,” she says.“Right here in Canada, I was hearing this voice that I knew wasn’t from here — but I knew I could do that too. As young as I was, that was the beginning.”Franklin, who is synonymous with her title as the “Queen of Soul,” died on Thursday in Detroit from pancreatic cancer. She was 76.Black says her sisters were loyal fans of Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 radio show where Franklin’s mid-1980s hits “Freeway of Love” and “Who’s Zoomin’ Who” would have made appearances.Those songs encouraged her to learn more about Franklin’s roots as the daughter of a church pastor, which Black felt paralleled her own experience as the daughter of a deacon. She supposes they might’ve shared a few viewpoints on the music industry.“There are times where we’ve had to pass up things because it didn’t align with our faith, with our integrity,” Black says.“That’s where the church always stayed with me and I believe that’s where the church stayed with her.”Over her career, Franklin proved a musical versatility that challenged definition.While she forged an early career in Motown with hits like “Chain of Fools” and “Respect,” she was also a steadfast gospel singer who played piano on a whim. Her career’s many chapters included a pop resurgence in duets with 1980s figures like George Michael and Annie Lennox and being the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.Franklin held the seemingly universal admiration of her peers.Celine Dion called sharing the stage with the vocal powerhouse on VH1’s 1998 “Divas Live” one of the greatest moments of her career.“She was an unbelievable artist who inspired me and millions of others,” Dion posted Thursday on Facebook.“She was the most soulful and inspirational singer of our time… there will never be anyone like her.”Dan Aykroyd, who spent time with Franklin on the set of both Blues Brothers movies, tweeted that he recalled “happy memories” of her.“The Queen had a wry, skeptical eye on the world but once you got her laughing you were in,” he wrote.“What a voice! What a soul.”Her extensive music catalogue also made Franklin’s songs frequent candidates for covers.Toronto R&B singer Melanie Fiona says she performed 1971’s “Rock Steady” on tour years ago. She considered it a high point of the show, but attests that covering one of Franklin’s songs is never easy.“It’s big shoes to fill,” she says.“You’re kind of diving in with the sharks because if you mess it up… your head’s on the chopping block. When you’re that great, like Aretha, you’ve got to do it justice.”Fiona credits Franklin with inspiring her own career and those of her idols, such as Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.“As a singer I feel such a great sense of loss,” she says.“That’s the mother of these voices.”Follow @dfriend on Twitter. by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 16, 2018 10:19 am PDT Last Updated Aug 16, 2018 at 1:21 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img ‘She gave me hope’: Jully Black on how Aretha Franklin inspired generationslast_img read more

Human rights lawyer rolls out proposal to solve the property issue

first_imgHuman rights lawyer Achilleas Demetriades has a series of proposals to muster funds in the order of €20bn, in an effort to tackle the property issue, one of the thorniest aspects of the Cyprus problem.The former member of the Technical Committee on Property told CNA in an interview: “We need to clearly define the property issue in order to present a ‘turnkey solution’ to the problem”.Demetriades, who has handled many cases in the European Court of Human Rights, analysed his set of proposals, which he calls “one page brainstorming”, containing facts, assumptions and incentives for a positive outcome.Among other points, Demetriades said that zoning should be frozen for at least two years to minimise speculation. He proposes that refugees’ claims to the Federal Immovable Property Commission to be separated between those seeking a “fast track” remedy, i.e. cash repayment, and those aiming for restitution or other time-consuming options.“Most people want to take their money and go” especially after the 2013 financial crisis, he said.Before explaining the rationale behind his proposal to secure the necessary funds, Demetriades refers to existing difficulties to agree with the math. “We get bogged down in details, unfortunately” although this shouldn’t prevent us from getting into the methodology of the problem, he says.The lawyer admits, however, that there is no agreed data, and says that numbers require perhaps adjustment. As the basis for his calculations, he uses various studies published by economists.According to the estimates cited by Demetriades, there are 1.3m donums of Greek Cypriot land in the north with a value €45bn. Turkish Cypriot land in the government-controlled areas of the Republic amounts to 0.4m donums, worth €5 bln.He says that in the event of a solution, each constituent state should undertake the cost of compensation and re-housing, potentially with international assistance. As an example, he points to Turkey’s capital share available in the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB).His first assumption is that territorial adjustments will eventually lead to the return of Greek Cypriot properties, worth €20-25m, to their owners. The return of the fenced-off part of Turkish occupied Famagusta, with its high value properties, will contribute to that. According to the same rationale, the remaining Greek Cypriot properties in the northern part of the island will account for around €20bn.Then there is the issue of Greek Cypriot refugees who say they want to return to their properties after a settlement. If we are to believe a study that sets their number to 22% of the total, Demetriades said that this will bring down compensation claims by another €5bn, leaving €15bn to be settled.Moreover, he says that at least three quarters of Turkish Cypriot land in the southern government controlled areas has been assigned to the unrecognised “government”, in return for receiving property that is located in the north. This, he said, facilitates the return of this property to the Greek Cypriot side, lowering the bill to around €10bn.One of the proposals to drop figures even further, is to allocate a share of the federal debt to Turkish Cypriots, after Ankara pardons their own debt. A share of €5bn will work as a “unifying factor”, Demetriades said and noted that this is “a creative way” to reduce the bill.Finally, he proposes the remaining €5bn to be covered by Turkey, either through guarantees to the Federal Immovable Property Commission, its CEB capital or otherwise.In case all of this is not enough to cover the necessary funds, Demetriades proposes to count in the proceeds of gas revenue and in particular those coming from the gas pipeline that will traverse Turkey.“All this will be widely contested’ the lawyer admits, he says however that “we should not let unknown factors prevent us from outlining the problem.”Demetriades also presented a series of possible incentives to make his proposal work. He proposes to pay compensation to Greek Cypriots in cash or set up a trust, similar to that in Lebanon.Another suggestion is to impose a two-year moratorium on foreclosures, in exchange of priority repayments of mortgages to Commercial Banks, using the money from compensation.As for the Bank for Reconstruction that will be called to subsidise rebuilding activity, Demetriades proposes to capitalise it, among others, by attracting funds through a tax amnesty for Cypriots, as well as for non-Cypriots opting for the nationality scheme.He also proposes the Federal Cyprus to enter into a Double Tax Treaty and a Bilateral Investment Treaty with Turkey, as well as to renegotiate the one with the UK in view of Brexit.The human rights lawyer said finally that Cyprus should not expect too much from an international donor conference, when there are so many pressing cases arounf the world, such as Syria.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

said Singh in his tweets "What will be the cost of making Aadhaar cards for cows Will cow vigilantes get the responsibility for this too" he added Digvijaya Singh PTI "Will Muslim cattle keepers be protected from these cow vigilantes even then" said the Congress leader The Modi government’s move to provide ID numbers for cows is part of its plans of tagging and tracking cattle to ensure they get vaccines on time which can improve their breeding and milk production and double the industry’s income by 2022 The central government has also recommended special care for cattle beyond the age of milking A report in The Economic Times in January said that nearly one lakh technicians are fanning out across the country since 1 January and will affix a tag containing a 12-digit unique identification number inside the ear of every single cow and buffalo in the country — all 88 million of them The ambitious project will be concluded by the end of this year and comes at a cost of Rs 148 crore These "animal Aadhaar cards" will contain the breed and age of the cattle as well as information about the owner location and also details about its vaccination This move comes about a year after Jharkhand embarked upon a similar mission to trace and tag the 42 lakh cattle it had New sparks are flying in a timeworn debate over how to crack down on bogus patent lawsuits Efforts to deter so-called patent trolls—firms that base their business on amassing patents and then suing other firms for infringement—have often put universities at odds with the technology industry This week a group of electronics companies sent a letter to more than 120 universities asking them to rethink their opposition to recently proposed legislation aimed at disarming patent trolls—a move that may polarize the issue further At the center of the debate is the Innovation Act introduced in the US House of Representatives in February as a way to make it harder and more financially risky for a company to file a groundless patent infringement lawsuit Supporters of the bill say it would protect small- and medium-sized companies that often agree to costly settlements when they can’t afford to fight infringement charges in court But universities—which since 1980 have been able to license and profit from patents on the inventions of their researchers—fear that measures to deter patent trolls from suing might also make it too difficult to enforce their own patent rights Compared with high-tech companies universities are more often on the giving end than the receiving end of the legal threats says Arti Rai a patent law expert at Duke University in Durham North Carolina The tension has existed for nearly a decade and flared when a bill similar to the Innovation Act stalled in the Senate last year “It’s a real standoff” Rai says “As far as I can tell there isn’t necessarily a whole lot of room for compromise” In February the group of universities laid out their concerns about the new bill in a letter to leaders of the House and Senate judiciary committees They find two provisions especially troubling One would require the losing party in a patent infringement suit to pay the winning party’s legal fees That could deter patent trolls from suing but could also deter universities and their startup companies who have limited funds to pursue complicated litigation from going after infringers the letter claims They also oppose a related provision that would force co-owners of a patent to step in and pay these fees if the losing party couldn’t This “involuntary joinder” is intended to hold parent companies responsible for the actions of shell companies set up solely to file lawsuits But universities fear they might be forced to pay fees if they are joined with a company licensing one of their patents “We’re puzzled by that” says Michael Petricone senior vice president of government and regulatory affairs for the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) an industry group representing more than 2000 technology companies “If there is something in the bill that is going to negatively impact you then you may want to reassess how you’re doing business” CEA released a letter Wednesday—cast as a plea “on behalf of thousands of your alumni” who own companies—arguing that the controversial provisions are unlikely to hurt universities According to the bill fee shifting and joinder would be on the table only when a lawsuit is deemed not to be “reasonably justified in law and fact” and suits filed by a university wouldn’t fall into that category Petricone says Two major university groups were quick to respond A joint letter from the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities and the Association of American Universities some of whose members are among the schools opposing the current bill says universities stand “united in opposition to the abusive practices of patent trolls” but will continue to push back on the Innovation Act’s provisions The bill isn’t clear enough about when fee shifting and joinder would apply they argue and it places excessive burden on the parties asserting their patents to prove they are not bad actors The letter concludes by “inviting” CEA to support a different approach Many universities and the biotech industry back a competing bill introduced by two democrats in the Senate last month that would focus more narrowly on deterring demand letters—notices that threaten a lawsuit if a company doesn’t pay licensing fees But Rai points out that the Innovation Act has “strong momentum” behind it in the Republican-controlled House and Senate such as George W679 Lindsey Graham referred to the fact that he had to get a new phone after Republican frontrunner gave out his phone number at a rally so

and dozens more wounded late on Saturday in an attack possibly carried out by a suicide bomber on a wedding party in the Turkish city of Gaziantep near the Syrian border officials said The explosion is the latest attack to have rocked the key Nato member in a horrific year that has seen a string of strikes blamed on Kurdish and Islamist militants as well as a bloody 15 July botched coup Gaziantep governor Ali Yerlikaya said in a statement that 30 people had been killed and 94 wounded in "an abhorrent terror bomb attack on a wedding" A previous toll had put the number of dead at 22 "We condemn the traitors who organised and carried out this attack" he said vowing that those responsible would be "brought to account" Mehmet Erdogan a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) lawmaker for Gaziantep said it was not clear who was responsible for the explosion but there was a "high possibility" it was a suicide attack The explosion took place in the Sahinbey district of the city which is said to have a large number of Kurdish residents AP The lawmaker added that it was the type of attack that could have been launched by the Islamic State (IS) group or the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) ‘IS the culprit’ The explosion took place in the Sahinbey district of the city which is said to have a large number of Kurdish residents fuelling speculation of Islamic State (IS) jihadist involvement Reports said the wedding had a strong Kurdish presence "Initial information suggests it is Daesh (IS) who did this" Gaziantep MP for the AKP Samil Tayyar was reported as saying by Dogan news agency He added: "It is an area where many of our Kurdish brothers live" The pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) said its members had been present at the wedding which was also attended by many women and children "The aim of terror is to scare the people but we will not allow this" said Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek who also represents Gaziantep in the Turkish parliament adding that a suicide bombing was the likely cause A major city lying just 60 kilometres (37 miles) north of the Syrian border Gaziantep has become a hub for Syrians fleeing the civil war in their country But as well as refugees and opposition activists there have long been fears it was home to a significant jihadist presence Images from the scene showed bodies covered in white sheets while distraught relatives of the victims were comforted in the street Turkey has already been hit by a bloody year of militant attacks in its two biggest cities that have left dozens dead Kurdish militants have twice struck in Ankara in deadly attacks while IS suicide bombers have twice killed tourists in the centre of Istanbul Meanwhile the country is still reeling from a failed 15 July coup blamed on the US-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen that has been followed by a relentless purge of his supporters from all state institutions Twelve people were killed on Thursday in a spate of bombings against Turkish security forces blamed on the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) who appear to have ramped up their campaign of attacks in the aftermath of the failed coup As has been the case in previous attacks Turkey’s broadcasting regulator RTUK banned broadcast of footage from the scene of the attack in Gaziantep Information and Communication Agency (BTK) head Omer Fatih Sayan told state-run Anadolu news agency that those sharing images of the bombing would face prosecution ‘More active Turkey’ The blast in Gaziantep came on the day Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim vowed Ankara would play a "more active" role in the next six months in efforts to solve the over five-year Syrian civil war In a sign that Turkey’s position was becoming gradually more aligned with Russia and Iran he added that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could remain temporarily during a transition period Iran and Russia are the main allies of Assad whereas Turkey has always insisted his exit was a precondition for the end of the conflict Turkey was long accused of turning a blind eye to or even abetting the rise of IS in Syria claims it vehemently denies However Western states say Ankara has begun to move strongly against the group and seal its borders to jihadist traffic after the attacks blamed on IS on its soil this year Washington: As he made fun of President Donald Trump

a USA Today Every time a USA Today slides underneath my door it’s like they’re saying ‘Hey you’re not that smart right’ USA Today is what happens when the coupon section takes over the newspaper Is this an article about global warming or 50 cents off Tide Either way the pictures are so pretty" he said "Fox News is here I’m amazed you guys even showed up How are you here in public It’s hard to trust you guys when you backed a man like Bill O’Reilly for years But it finally happened Bill O’Reilly has been fired But then you gave him a 25 million dollar severance package Making it the only package he won’t force a woman to touch" he said "I know some of you are wondering Hasan how do you know so much about Fox News Well as a Muslim I like to watch Fox News for the same reason I like to play Call of Duty Sometimes I like to turn my brain off and watch strangers insult my family and heritage" he added As he mocked Trump several times he said that the president would be tweeting about him at 3 am "It’s 11 pm in four hours Donald Trump will be tweeting about how badly Nikki Minaj did at this dinner And he’ll be doing it completely sober And that’s his right And I’m proud that all of

and Magnus Carlsen are all set to clash for the World Chess Championship starting Saturday The return match held in the Russian resort town of Sochi will see Anand aiming to wrest back the crown he lost last year in Chennai Just days earlier legend Garry Kasparov had hinted darkly that Anand may be in cahoots with Russian intelligence to “destabilise” his protégé Carlsen In an interview he said that the democracy-hating Russkies might nobble the incumbent champion The image of Anand confabulating with trenchcoated KGB agents over a plate of thayir sadam is certainly evocative While it may have sent ripples amongst the more credulous Twitteratti long-time watchers of the scene know that this is standard operating procedure Boxing has its storied tradition of “weigh-ins” where the contestants and their supporters trash talk if not brawl Chess championships too have their equivalent when the two gladiators and their representatives in the run-up to the match fire verbal salvoes at each other Kasparov was Carlsen’s coach and still considers himself a mentor to the Norwegian His statements are part of the put-downs faint praise and veiled threats that fans have come to accept Why is all this so important Chess is a game of perfect information You see all your opponent’s pieces on the board and so does she The mindgames are an attempt to inject what strategist Clausewitz called the “fog of war” Each of the duellists wants to insert an element of uncertainty in the enemy’s mind that can paralyse decision-making “Lies and hypocrisy do not survive for long on the

should be a sickness clause which would enable him to take a two-day break whenever he wanted in the middle of the match Why Because of the possibility that his Norwegian constitution may collapse due to eating spicy Indian food As Anand was an Indian and presumably used to the fare this clause would expressly not be allowed for him Again in the run-up to Sochi he refused to sign the contract agreeing to do only at the last minute after the global chess federation called his bluff and threatened to replace him Carlsen showed his shrewd understanding of what makes a chess player tick Grandmasters are used to strict objective rules governing the play Undermine this by arbitrarily trying to tweak the rules around the conduct of the match and you’ve won an important point Of course the lead-up to the match is like water unto wine moonlight unto sunlight compared to what happens when the first pawns are pushed in anger There have been world championship matches since 1886 — and there have been shenanigans too Fischer’s antics against Spassky in their celebrated encounter in Reykjavik are well known The match between Viktor Korchnoi and Anatoly Karpov in 1977 however was the perfect storm the “how to” of psychological operations Korchnoi was a defector while Karpov was the darling of the Soviet establishment Their styles of play — Korchnoi was fiery and mercurial while Karpov was cold-blooded and calculating — also reflected their temperaments The very first battle was over the flags — what would Korchnoi play under The Soviets wanted him to play under a white flag bearing “Stateless” while Korchnoi counter-offered to play under the Soviet flag with “I’ve Escaped” printed on it As the match progressed the two men’s bitter antipathy swelled over into almost every conceivable sphere Just to give you a taste ructions erupted when Karpov demanded and was served yoghurt during a game Korchnoi sent a furious letter to the organisers stating: “It is clear that a cunningly arranged distribution of edible items to one player during the game could convey a kind of code message” A commission was appointed to investigate and it was decreed that only the violet-coloured yogurt could be served Anand of course is famous for his ever-courteous demeanour But perhaps the very fact that Vishy doesn’t use mindgames is itself a statement of his confidence
