A woman, for a change

Forget the braindead non-actresses you lot normally lust after, here's a real woman; a swimsuit-modelling chess 'grandmistress' who's just won the world chess championship [hat tip Shaving Leviathan].

And here's her website, "the most visited Grandmaster chess site in the world" -- less to do, I'm sure, with the "semi-naked pictures" of herself on Miami beach, than the highlights videos of her games.

I think that top particle physicist Prof. Lisa Randall is also a real woman. The following is a short article about her featuring in the Time Magazine's influential Times 100.

Here is Charlie Rose's (a TV talk-host) interview with Prof. Randall's.

I hope that Auckland University invites her for their regular annual Sir Douglas Robb Memorial (free lecturers) Lectures , soon.
