Do you like to play chess? My 8-year-old grandson sure does! Turns out that chess is one of the oldest and most popular board games. It is played by two opponents on a checkerboard with specially designed pieces of contrasting colors, commonly white and black. The objective of the game is to capture the opponent’s king. In 1956, MANIAC, developed at Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, became the first computer to defeat a human in a chess-like game. Also, Deep Blue won the deciding game after Garry Kasparov failed to secure his position in the opening and became the first computer system to defeat a reigning world champion.

From Publishing Perspectives by Porter Anderson, Editor-in-chief:

Simon & Schuster will acquire VBK from the Netherlands. “As many of our readers will remember during our keynote interview at London Book Fair, Jonathan Karp, the president and CEO of Simon & Schuster, was adamant about his interest in taking his 100-year-old publishing house into new levels of international work… We’re in meetings regularly and we’ve got a Zoom meeting where we’ve got Canada and the UK and Australia we’re talking every week now. We’ll be publishing more geopolitics internationally, more business books internationally, more practical nonfiction internationally. The traffic will be going in all directions.” Simon & Schuster’s acquisition of Utrecht’s  Veen Bosch & Keuning (VBK), is a case in point and is S&S’s first time acquisition where English is not the most-spoken language. Genevieve Waldman will remain in her position as VBK’s CEO

We had a huge power outage here  on Sullivan’s Island, SC yesterday which lasted for 24 hours, so Tea With Katina and Leah is late. Did have time to read an email from the versatile and great Adam Chesler who is no longer working with AIPP after a restructuring of the Sales Department. He says he will do his best to attend the Charleston Conference this November!
