The Genesis of Misogyny

Church and State It all started with Eve. Or did it? The Alphabet Of Ben-Sira , a Judaic document derived from a Talmudic script, asserts that Lilith, not Eve, was Adam’s wife. Since it comes to us through the same mythological lineage as the Bible itself, the historical veracity of The Alphabet of Ben-Sira is not what matters here. What does matter is that this ancient text gives us a female who makes Germaine Greer look like Mother Teresa. Unlike her successor, Eve, Lilith was not made from Adam’s rib….

Everybody loves Martin Hanzal: Here’s who Canadian teams could target and trade before the March 1 deadline

Attention, NHL general managers: There are only four shopping weeks left to wheel and deal in an attempt to bolster your rosters for the stretch drive. As of Wednesday, there will be exactly one month remaining before the March 1 trade deadline. And for Canada’s seven teams, much has changed since they all fell short of reaching the playoffs last season. As of the all-star break, every Canadian-based franchise either held a playoff spot or was within three points of one. What a difference a year makes. Keeping that in…

The week in review

In which the Armstrong stutter again, the Heidenfeld and O’Hanlon A take another step towards a double title, and the O’Sullivan A become the first of our teams to finish their campaign. The Armstrong had another unfortunate evening in Dún Laoghaire, with a default putting the team 1 – -1 before a pawn had been pushed. Constantin fell to a quick enough defeat against Alice O’Gorma, and though we went unbeaten in the remaining six matches, it was only enough to rescue a 3½-3½ draw, which means that even fourth…

‘Chances are high’ Lightning will trade Ben Bishop before deadline

For a while it looked as though the injury-riddled Tampa Bay Lightning were going to miss the playoffs. With 23 games remaining in the regular season, Jon Cooper’s team is scratching its way back into the post-season race but that still might not prevent Steve Yzerman from selling off a significant piece of the roster prior to the NHL Trade Deadline. The 30-year-old netminder has a $5.95-million salary cap hit and is set to become an unrestricted free agent following the season. Bishop is 16-12-.. Advertisement

TIL in 1997, when computer Deep Blue went against Gary Kasparov in a game of Chess, Deep Blue made an unpredictable move in the 44th turn. Kasparov attributed this to Deep Blue’s “superior intelligence.” It was actually just a bug.

Lots of people! There’s even a pro chess league that got started recently and is pretty cool. I’m a fan of the St. Louis Arch Bishops with notable team members like Wesley “Crusher” So and Ben “Just Tryna” Finegold. The league has really introduced a fun drama element to chess and the commentary is great! Outside of the PCL scene and in the more traditional chess world there is cause for some excitement too as 3 year undisputed reigning World Chess Champion Magnus “The Machine” Carlsen finally has a couple…

Extra Sauce: About Trust, Trade Rumors, and A Goalie Not Named Ben Bishop

Photo by Heather Barry I don’t really know a whole lot about basketball, but here’s what my understanding of the Nerlens Noel trade is. The Sixers had two players, a good one, and a bad one. They have been actively trying to trade the bad player, but constantly refuse offers they deemed “not enough”. Then they went and traded the good player for less than what they were asking for for the bad player because they didn’t wanna pay the good player after this season. That Feels like if the…

Quick Strikes: Kevin Shattenkirk nixed Tampa trade
