  Keres
The General Dynamics “Keres” (Hebrew for hook) missile is a land based Target Anti-Radiation weapon system which was developed by the United States, according to Israeli Air Force requirements, as part of the Yom-Kippur war's lessons.
Keres uses the same air frame as the Egrof Segoal (Purple Punch), which in turn is the same as the US operated AGM-78 Standard missile but is optimized for land based operations.
The Keres was the replacement for the Kilshon (trident), which in effect was an AGM-45 Shrike missile with a second stage booster added.

Keres' failure in 1948 gave rise to speculation that he was forced by Soviet authorities to throw games to Botvinnik, who as a native Russian and loyal Communist, was a more desirable world champion by Party standards than the non-Russian, politically tainted Keres.
Yet Evans insists that Keres "left a trail in his first four losses [in 1948] for those who are knowledgeable enough to follow it to an inescapable conclusion." Apparently British GM John Nunn, generally considered a stronger player than Evans, is not "knowledgeable enough".

The Keres-Botvinnik Case: A Survey of the Evidence by Taylor Kingston Part II The case of Paul Keres and Mikhail Botvinnik is a chess equivalent of the John F. Kennedy assassination: an unsolved historical mystery full of dark implications, about which conflicting opinions and theories abound.
Perhaps Keres had the forgiving nature of a saint, or Botvinnik was a very artful liar, a disinformation artist on a par with Felix Derzhinsky or Josef Goebbels.
He believes that Keres made inferior moves without Botvinnik's knowledge, and that possibly Botvinnik was fed advance information about Keres' planned opening repertoire from duplicitous seconds (a tactic Vukcevic says was once used against himself, in a Russian tournament, and which has been alleged in some recent world title matches).

 Keres
The idea of documentation to this day remains for some a far stretch of the imagination (not that they are short-sighted) and an unnessesary effort for an older already fluent gereration who may have no need or want to have to re-learn something they are already proficient at.
The thought of writing/documenting Keres may in their opinions be completely culturally out of context with what it means to be “Cochiti” in the first place.
It simply draws the line in the sand about whether you are able to speak Keres fluently or not…and maybe that in itself is one of the problems.

Az optimalizálás azon alapul, hogy a Szabadszavas keresők csak közvetítők az interneten kereső felhasználók és a weboldalak üzemeltetői között: úgy is felfogható ez a viszony, hogy a keresők ingyenes hirdetési felületet biztosítanak a webmesterek számára, cserébe pedig a webmesterek által szolgáltatott információk választ adnak a felhasználók kérdéseire.
Kevés olyan felhasználó van, aki nem lép tovább a keresőoldalakról: a kereső rendszerek ezért az általuk generált látogatottság döntő hányadát egyenesen továbbadják a Találati rangsorban megjelenő webmestereknek, akik aztán szintén profitálhatnak a látogatottságból.
Szerintem az történt, hogy a mind a co.hu-n, mind a.com-on keresve minden nyelvű oldalak között keres a Google, viszont a co.hu-n alapból a magyar oldalak jó nagy előnyt élveznek a rangsorolásnál, ami a.com-on keresve már nem áll fenn.
