The 19th South Wales International (chess)

This is Wales strongest chess tournamant in the year.

Its a 9 round classical chess tournemnat starting from Friday 5th - Wed 10th July. Held in the heronston hotel, bridgend.

The time format is 90 minutes, 30 secpnd increment per move and additional 30 minutes at move 40.

The tournement in the entrants has 3 GMs which are the same 3 as last year.

It has the 2 highest rated welsh chess players IM Jose Camacho Collados and FM Daniel Kozusek.

Orher notable players are 3 IM's one of (Jack Rudd which is I believe the highest rated nonbinary person in chess.

The rounds start at 10:00 on the 5th, 7th and 9th and 16:00 everyday.

I will probably create a post closer to the day linking to chess board broadcast for anyone interested keeping up with the event.

(Also you still have time to enter if you want, though 4 beginners this is probably not the best first tournemant, id suggest the next one in newport mid-late august)

What kind of voter demographics vote Plaid?

Is there any particularly good analysis of where Plaid Cymru get the most voters?

Do they tend to get younger or older voters? Manual or office workers? Rural or urban? Or does it correlate more with Welsh language use?

I'm adding Plaid Cymru as a playable party in my election game (link is in my profile if you're interested!) and I want to get the research right - they're the one party where I don't already know this!

Edit: I asked for sources of analysis, but I'd be very happy to accept your anecdotal evidence too ☺️

Planning a Welsh cocktail menu---what flavors to use?

Hi, as title said I am planning a Welsh cocktail menu (bc this begs the question of why: welcome back party for a Welsh friend). What are quintessential Welsh flavors (not necessarily liqueurs or spirits) that I could incorporate in drinks? Like what herbs, vegetables, fruits, and so one are common in the cuisine?

Live bus tracker not working anymore (TrawsCymru app)

This used to be a really helpful feature, but now it's stopped working? The busses don't appear atall.

Tried clearing cache, tried restarting my phone, tried uninstall and reinstall...

Still, this feature is not working. Anyone else got this issue?

I began using it abt 3 months ago and it worked fine until last week. :/

Baby name appropriation?

We are having a baby girl in December and I am in love with the name Emrys (we first heard it in the tv show Merlin). I have read that it is not appropriate to use welsh names if we have no welsh ancestry, especially if we use it for the wrong gender. Would I be offending anybody by naming my daughter Emrys?

Hospitals with labour wards

Which Welsh hospitals have labour wards/delivery suites? These are high-risk units, not birth centers

Not as easy as I had thought to find this info online. The maternity site for Powys literally says 'depending on where you live in Powys, you will know where your local maternity hospital is' !

Difference between living one side of the border or the other?

My wife has a new job in NE Wales and we are looking to move from London to live in Chester. Obviously the border runs through the city so I wanted to check if there were any notable differences of living in Wales vs England? I know the border is invisible in most ways but are there ‘hidden differences’ we should consider? Things that come to mind are some taxes (I know stamp duty is different for example), or access to healthcare/education, but there may be more. Would be very interested to hear any views. Diolch!

PS. I know it’s going to be a different pace of life from London…half of the motive for moving!
