Go Classified: Teacher Wanted in San Jose

Wednesday August 6, 2014

I have been teaching at the Berryessa Chinese School for 14 years now and am honored to have had this opportunity,” writes Jean deMaiffe.  “Because of my rewarding relationship with BCS, I am hoping to help them find other (preferably English-fluent) regular and substitute go teachers for their culture program. BCS has three campuses in the Berryessa neighborhood of San Jose, California.  One is for ‘the little kids’, one for the middle range (roughly eight through twelve years old) and one for high schoolers.  My venue has been the middle range school, which I have very much enjoyed. Currently, BCS needs a teacher for the high school, may need one for the little kids, and may also need one for my school this coming year or the year after (negotiable) when I plan to retire.  Clearly, if a teacher does well with the BCS school students, the teaching relationship can continue indefinitely.  The middle school has its own equipment and a set of problem books.  BCS has been willing to acquire classroom materials as necessary for my class.  Interested teachers can contact BCS directly through their website, and may contact me via email at jean@dougandjean.com

Go Classified: Seeking Japan Go Camp Attendees

Tuesday June 24, 2014

“I read about the Go Camp in Japan (Nihon Kiin Organizing Special Go Camp to Celebrate 90th Birthday 3/22 EJ) this summer,” writes Bob Barber. “I will be in Japan for a wedding, so I couldn’t actually join the Camp, but if I can fit it into my schedule, it would be interesting to hang on the sidelines and at least see some of my buddies whom I no longer see at Congress.” Anyone planning to attend can reach Barber at komoku@clear.net.

Your Move/Readers Write: How to Submit A Classified? Redmond Remembers the Game of Life; The Origin of Surreal Numbers?

Tuesday April 22, 2014

How to Submit A Classified? “Is there someone out there who can tell me how to list an item in the E-Journal’s Go Classified section?” wonders Marc Palmer. “I’ve searched the site and it’s certainly not obvious.”
Certainly; just send your classified(s) to us at journal@usgo.org; no charge for the listing(s)!

Redmond Remembers the Game of Life: “I enjoyed the Game of Life article,” (Go Spotting: Conway’s Game of Life 4/14 EJ) writes Michael Redmond 9P. “It reminded me that my father once showed it to me. We used white stones for the newborns, and then changed them to black stones after taking away the dead stones, after which we could start a new turn. Some shapes are static, and some move around, so it is interesting to have them scattered about as they interact. One tends to run out of space on a go board, so I guess it works better on a computer.”

The Origin of Surreal Numbers? “Another interesting fact about Conway, according to his biographer in a forthcoming book,” writes British Go Association president Jon Diamond, “is that he invented the concept of ‘Surreal Numbers’ when he was watching a game of go at Cambridge University between Tony Goddard and myself in 1967 or thereabouts…”
