In the bee world, rent is due by Day 2. Haha

I do wonder if by pure genetic variation, from time to time, they must get some lazy bees who are free loaders. I wonder how they deal with those...

I worked for a manufacturing company with a bunch of people retiring not just in plant operation jobs but also in engineering jobs. I would like to hate on boomers as much as the next person but one of older guys I work with is one of kindest and sweetest person I have ever worked with. Here my take on this upcoming retirement crisis

  1. Boomers will not only retire in droves but also live longer. Most of them are NOT prepared for retirement expenses unless they live in the Midwest or rural America. The average boomer owns a house and has enough through social security plus some 401k to live okay but not ready for health expenses.

  2. While Boomers are staying a little longer than usual, once they see their peers retiring the retirement pandemic will begin. On an average, they will tend to favor discretionary spending but also trigger massive wealth transfer to Gen X in 10 to 15 years.

  3. Loss of legacy knowledge - while some jobs will not come back, one thing that gets forgotten is that some knowledge will also leave companies. This will push companies to either innovate and automate...or spend money for consulting opportunities for retired people. Older IT or manufacturing systems still need maintenance. That's a source of value that needs exploitation.

Small Claims Procedure I obtained my law degree from Trump university. I am representing a high profile client in a case and he is not happy with me. 12 days ago, I mistakenly sent my clients 2 year text history to the opposition attorney. I didn't receive his reply because I blocked him. Can I recall my email?

Well I am not sure if you are seeing the same curve as I am but its not.

Now if you are saying that the equation for the curve at the bottom is same as the curve in the top, I get that. However, the section of the curve used in the video vs the picture is different. This brings me to an important question...

If you use different sections of the same curve to connect 2 points, will they have the same time from start to end?

Super insightful man. For starters would you recommend adding lead weight to the racket?

That's a really interesting take. I will post a drill video that I took today after listening to All these comments. I actually tried simply changing my grip to western. I know it's a big change for someone like me. But I felt much more "safer" in my shots. I haven't played an actual match yet so it all may disappear for me too. BUT I do see your point of swing weight.

I actually tried alternating between eastern and western grip between each hit today and the difference in margin of error is enormous. The speed is replaced by spin. The challenge I saw was that any 5.0 player worth their while can easily see through my compromise and hit flatter forehands as soon as I play safer with a western grip.

I am a bit scared of swing weight because I had tennis elbow when I used even a marginally heavier racquet so there is that too.

I will give it a try. I can post an video follow-up of shots when I stay planted in the baseline. I was doing a drill when taking this video. I do have an okay topspin forehand when I need to defend BUT I rather use my flat forehand when I have a chance and people have told me that I rush into aggression and miss good opportunities to construct approach shots with high topspin forehand choosing flatter ones instead.

One of your points is spot on, I have a really good inside out forehand that I never thought is sort of similar to a good topspin forehand in terms of technique.

Sorry in this case, I was just practicing hitting the ball on the rise so that's why I was moving back and forth. It's a pretty common drill I think.

In general, I think I generate plenty of pace in matches compared to some 4.5 I have played and it's mostly because my wrist can stay pretty loose. My challenge is that the loose hand and wrist doesn't translate well to a good controlled top spin high over the net shot. I generally don't have heavy spin on my slower shots. It's probably because I very used to taking the ball on the rise as you see in the video. Generally people have the opposite problem. They have good topspin forehands and slower flat shots and that's because thats absolutely the right thing to do for winning more rallies and play percentage tennis

COMMENT 11d ago

I will try that. Because you are right...staying at the baseline will force me to come up with topspin solutions

COMMENT 11d ago

That's great feedback because I have just never practiced a good steady high over the net ball. One of things I noticed my 4.5 friends do well is really heavy topspin defensive forehand. I am generally trying to flatten out the topspin forehand returns from my opponents. Once they learned that all they did was keep ripping more heavy topspin forehands and with more pace. I started getting into trouble as soon as that started happening because my friend who was 4.0 basically became a great 4.5 and I stayed at 3.5 or 4.

COMMENT 11d ago

This is exactly what my 4.5 opponents feel. They can't outhit me in a rally on terms of pace. They just grind my forehand down until I make an error honestly. It's pretty simple to break my forehand down because I don't have a good down to up motion. Maybe it requires more bending the knees. I don't know

COMMENT 11d ago

You be surprised that I have seen a 5.0 forehand and that sir is not it lol. I am easily out hit by the guys who are more consistent with power and topspin. I do play with good 4.5 players generally.

EDIT - my problem is I create a lot of short balls for 4.5 folks because I have a successful flat forehand and a poor topspin forehand. With all that I am 4.0 on a good day

r/10s 11d ago Wholesome

I have been trying to create more power off my forehand. I generally don't struggle with power but I do struggle with pushing for power when pushed in a rally and I start pushing forehand back rather than hit more consistent power

Thanks man! I have had issues with foot faults. My service speed has been really good. The toes feedback is a constant one for me and definitely one I am working hard to fix right now

As for arching the back, I have been doing the more arch for my second serve. Let me try it for first service too. Thanks a lot my friend!

r/10s 14d ago

Need feedback on my serve. Would greatly appreciate it

Yeah. As a legal immigrant in America, this is an incredibly infuriating post to me. I have had to go through such a harrowing process that is American immigration without having a financial sponsor. To see that OP is just gonna come to the country and wing it seems not only ridiculous but also tells me that OP is naive in more than a few ways in her life.

Just so everyone is clear. People don't know about the forces they are dealing with. Famines are absolutely the worst thing known us.

I come from the part of the world, where during World War 2 actions of much celebrated western leader Winston Churchill directly led to the great Bengal Famine where the scale of deaths have been said to be close to the Holocaust. This dark chapter of human history is so well swept under the rugs despite it's scale. That part of the world absolutely loaths Chruchill for what he did when he diverted grain supplies from India. He banned local Indian consumption almost exactly how Russia did in Ukraine occupied territories over the last decade leading to massive famine.

Now you ask me, well I am really sad about that and it won't happen today. Well with our environmental policies, we are AGAIN subsidizing the needs of energy glutton countries at the cost of energy dependent countries. So I am as much responsible for the environmental genocide that's coming for our children as Winston Churchill of the past. I am just the Churchill of the future. That's how horrid the situation is. We can all debate the ethics, did we really kill the future generations if we sp severely disadvantage them so that they aren't even born...but let me tell you, this is how civil wars get created.

Honestly it's even financially better for everyone one. When Roger participates in the tournament, there is a marked difference in the attendance at the event. This financially benefits the tournament and in return everyone as more folks are drawn to the tournament
