Today's Holiday
Administrative Professionals Week
Professional Secretaries' Week was started in 1952 by Professional Secretaries International—now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP).

Roger Mortimer, 1st Earl of March (1287)
Mortimer was imprisoned in 1322 for opposing King Edward II, but he escaped to France. When Edward II's queen, Isabella, came to France in 1325, Mortimer became her lover. Together they invaded England in 1326 and routed Edward, whom they forced to abdicate and later had murdered. Having secured the crown for young Edward III, Mortimer, with Isabella, virtually ruled England and acquired great wealth.

When Sobhuza died in 1982, one of his sons, Prince Makhosetive Dlamini, was selected as his successor.

Article of the Day
Blindfold Chess
In blindfold chess, players engage in a chess match without being able to see or touch the pieces. Moves are communicated via chess notation, a system which describes the pieces' location on the board. While it is generally thought that most strong players can play at least one game blindfolded, some masters are able to play dozens of blindfolded games simultaneously with different opponents.
