5/22/2007: The 10-piece db for English checkers is nowavailable! Seedetails here. There are also new versions of Kingsrow (1.16c) for both Englishand Italian checkers with engine and opening book improvements.

12/5/2005: 9-piece and partial 10-piece Italian databasesare coming. In October I finished building the 5x4 subset of the 9-pieceItalian database. I also built some of the most useful parts of the 10-pieceItalian db -- 5x5 positions with one king or less on a side. Normally thisrequires computing all the positions with more kings also, a process that tookme nearly a full year using 4 computers for English checkers. But I computedthese 10-piece positions in about 3 weeks by skipping the more king-heavypositions. There is a disadvantage to doing it this way -- some of thesepositions rely on the missing positions with more kings, and therefore cannot beresolved. However it turns out that only a small percentage of the positionscannot be resolved, so this was a nice way to make the Italian KingsRow morepowerful with only a small additional computing effort. Hereis a table which shows the percentage of positions that are resolved in each10-piece slice.

I have been building a new opening book using these databases. When I firstbuilt an opening book for Italian checkers using an 8-piece db, I discoveredthat 9 of the opening ballots are probably forced losses for the weak side.Using the new larger databases I have found 2 more ballots that are probablylost. These are 21-18 12-15 22-19 and 23-20 12-15 22-19. The new opening bookand endgame databases will be available in early 2006.

11/28/2004: Cake wins the long CheckerBoard enginematch! Cake won a 624-game computer checkers match against Kingsrow by ascore of +3 -1 = 620. The match games can be downloaded here.Details of the match announcement are here.

2/12/2004: Attention checkers programmers: Iam making available the endgame database drivers that are used in Kingsrow.These drivers, which are provided in the form of a .dll file, provide access to the Cake, Chinook, and Kingsrow English and Italiandatabases. Downloadhere. (Note: these drivers are only useful to people that are writingcheckers programs. If you are only using a checkers program you don't need thispackage.)

We tested dozens of grammar checkers, and Grammarly is the best tool on the market today. It'll help you write and edit your work much faster. Grammarly provides a powerful AI writing assistant and plagiarism checker tool. Anyone who works with the written word should use it.

The ProWritingAid grammar checker integrates with MS Word/Outlook, Google Docs, Open Office, Final Draft, and Scrivener. You can download a desktop app for Mac and Windows or install a plugin for your browser. ProWritingAid also offers Word and Google Docs plugins.

This is a clever feature. But, I prefer to run the final exported books file from Scrivener through a grammar checker before moving to Vellum for self-publishing. I also only use Scrivener these days for long-form writing and instead rely on iA Writer for producing articles like these.

Unlike the standard grammar checker in MS Word or Google Docs, these tools perform a more in-depth grammar check. You can even create downloadable editing reports! Basically, aA good English grammar corrector should help you fix:

Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers provides an excellent introduction to practical fact-checking strategies particularly for social media. Given this focus, it does not have a comprehensive approach to web literacy as a whole, but the four strategies for evaluating information Caulfield describes certainly could be employed in other contexts of evaluating information. The text in the Open Textbook Library itself is incomplete with the Field Guide section only containing an outline of planned sections. However, the version on Pressbooks has these chapters completed.

The Pressbooks version of the text is far superior to the others (for those reading online), with easy navigation, embedded media, no blank page gaps, and most importantly it is complete. The pdf version and others on the Open Textbook Library certainly are functional, but full of blank pages and half-pages and hyperlinks instead of videos and social media posts, and as previously noted, the Field Guide section is not complete.

The topics and skills analyzed and practiced are of great interest to librarians and instructors. I appreciate the lists, examples, and ability of this text to introduce issues of fact-finding on either an introductory level or on a more advanced level of exploration. A professional editor may have had suggestions for improving organization. Errors may have been corrected. We want our students to have the highest quality textbooks, no matter the format.

Checkers is a classic board game that comes to life online with 24/7 Games' first checkers game 24/7 Checkers. You can now play checkers versus the computer or with a friend whenever you want!
