    If you never liked the Miami heat does this change your opinion at all?

    Where does your daughter take lessons? my boss is looking for a club with a good junior program or a good instructor looking to take on new students... unfortunately i don't know the programs in the b'more/columbia/linthicum/laurel areas.

    Also I wouldn't worry ab being a helicopter parent during your kid's lessons its only natural. Most of the time the pros don't mind it (least I didn't when I was teaching full/part time) if your just hanging out and watching. Now if your shouting at your kid, correcting technique, or always asking the pro questions to the pro in the middle of the lesson then in that case yea those parents suck :)

    I stayed and watched. Not trying to be a heli-parent, but I wanted to see what I'm paying for. I was hoping she might have more fun being with other kids rather than just having me on the court, but I'm not impressed with the instruction as there is way too much standing around in line. Don't think I'm going to re-enroll after this session.

    I wish it was more like the soccer classes I signed up for with Bri where the parent works with the kid. The kids would get more reps in that way. At this point it's just about getting them to make contact with the ball.

    JRP - up in Burke. It's not a club so much as the local tennis association has classes at a set of courts.

    In MD, you might try the tennis club in college park. Other than that, don't know about the clubs up your way.

    Sorry, JRP...I'm down in Richmond. Can't help with any recommendations up your way.

    One of the reasons I could walk away was...I've taken many-a lessons from the instructor (he was our team coach back in the 3.0 days...hard-azz on adults, but has a good way with the kiddies). But next time, I may watch from a bit closer, albeit with a very closed mouth. Even though we're members of a club with good pros and an active youth program, this offering is through our county's park & rec division. Kind of hard to go against it as an introductory thing: $28 for 6 weeks (30 min sessions) at courts within biking distance (with a nice playground for younger sister to amuse herself on)...from a well-known instructor. If Nat really likes it (and she's already said, "mommy, that was kinda short!"), I may move her up to our club's programs.

    As a :oops: aside, the class for her age-group at our club is called "Dinkers." Wanna take a stab at what my two call doing #2 on the potty? LOL Our pro 'bout lost his coffee when I told him that one.

    Tennis for me today...was a nice success. We hosted the second-place team, who happen to be from the most La-De-Da club in town...and sent them back to third-place with a 6-1 team line score. First and second place teams move up a division next year so the pressure's on!

    I'm jeolous; haven't had cajun since my last trip to the Big Easy the year after Katrina. Gotta get down that way again, now that I'm a gentleman of leisure - and after my wife gets out of that dang cast. That should happen Thursday, and we're hoping for a walking boot. She's about to go cabin crazy, and I'm just going plain crazy. :)

    looks like a bunch of us are trying to teach the next generation of the TWMAC the game. i'm not hiring no professionals to teach my munchkins though. i'm gonna combine the teaching methods of marion bartoli's dad and jelena dokic's dad. so lots of pegging balls at the kids and screaming at them non-stop. i can already smell the wimbledon men's and women's trophies from 2027.

    what's for breakfast people?

    Dinkers... LOL! I almost lost my coffee on that one.

    Nice deal on the class. Our is for 8 weeks buy cost about $100. They are about 45 min long.

    Even though I think the format could use some work, it at least gave me some ideas on what I can work on with Bri when I have some time.

    Congrats on the new arrival; does that bump up the racquet quota in the CB household?

    Agree on women's pain threshold; I've heard that passing a kidney stone is the closest men can come to experiencing actual childbirth, and even that is a pale imitation. Even more kudos to women who go through it more than once.

    Congrats Cool!

    And...DUH! ;)

    X...that is true, it is said the pain of passing kidney and/or gall stones is akin to natural child birth. I've done the gall stone thing, and its convinced me of the beauty of epidurals!

    32 Random Facts About . . .
    Men

    In Old English, human men were referred to as wer, while the term man was used to describe humanity as a whole. During the thirteenth century, man gradually replaced wer as the term for an adult human male while also maintaining its use as an expression for the entire human species.c
    Worldwide, there are approximately 107 baby boys born for every 100 baby girls. Scientists believe the elevated birth rate in favor of boys may be linked to the higher mortality rates of boys in infancy and childhood.a
    Globally, boy babies are 25% more likely to die in infancy than girl babies.a
    Average height today for men in the U.S. is just over 5' 9" (175 cm) and average weight is approximately 190 pounds (86 kg). In 1960, average height for men was about 5' 8" (172 cm) and average weight was just over 166 pounds (75 kg).e
    Worldwide, men have a life expectancy of 64.52 years, as compared to a life expectancy of 68.76 years for women.e
    The most common cause of death for men in the U.S. is heart disease (the same as for women), and the average age of a first heart attack for men is just 66 years.e
    In the U.S., men have higher death rates for all of the 15 leading causes of death (with the exception of Alzheimer’s disease) and die more than five years younger than women.e

    The brains of adult men are about 10% larger in total size than the brains of women
    The brains of adult men are about 10% larger in total size than the brains of women. Because men generally have a larger stature and more muscle mass than women, their brains require more neurons to control the body.a
    Scientists have discovered than men's and women’s brains actually function somewhat differently. When focused on a task, men tend to use only one side of their brain at a time, devoting all of their attention and concentration to the task at hand. Women, on the other hand, tend to use both sides of the brain at the same time, making them more adept at "multi-tasking.”a
    The word “boy” has been in recorded use since A.D. 1154 as a descriptive term for a male child. The exact etymology of the word is unclear, but it is believed to have descended from the Anglo-Saxon word boia, meaning “servant” or “farm worker.”c
    Boys typically experience puberty between the ages of 12 and 14, a time in which the voice changes to its lower timbre, growth spurts occur, and the secondary sex characteristics begin to develop. Puberty for boys generally occurs later than in girls of the same age group.e
    While both boys’ and girls’ voices will change during puberty, the change in a boy’s voice is dramatic, sometimes dropping a whole octave in tone. Males in other species develop a deeper voice to attract females and intimidate other males, and scientists believe the change in the male human voice evolved for the same reasons.a
    The “Adam’s apple,” or laryngeal prominence in the neck, is a feature primarily unique to adult men and is a result of the growth of the larynx during puberty. The term is derived from the Biblical account of Adam eating the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden.c
    In most cultures throughout the world, boys historically experienced a rite of passage that marked their transition into the lives of adult men. Examples of traditional rites of passage include the Bar Mitzvah in Judaism, the “vision quest” in many American Indian tribes, and circumcision rites in many African cultures.f

    Worldwide, approximately one-third of men have been circumcised
    Approximately 56% of boy babies born in the U.S. are circumcised at birth, representing a decline of 20% since 1950. Worldwide, approximately one-third of men have been circumcised.e
    In terms of absolute size and in proportion to overall body mass, the human penis is longer and thicker than that of any other primate.e
    For approximately the first six weeks after conception, all human embryos develop as a default female child, primarily taking genetic information from the mother’s DNA. After the sixth week of development, if the embryo is male, the SRY gene on the Y chromosome will begin to produce androgens, primarily testosterone, that encourage the development of male characteristics and inhibit the further development of female characteristics.a
    The biological symbol for the male sex, a circle with a small arrow protruding from it, is also the symbol for the planet Mars. The two components of the symbol are designed to represent the shield and spear of Mars, the Roman god of war.a
    Boys are three to four times more likely to be diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorders than girls. While experts do not yet have a solid answer for the obvious gender discrepancy, some believe that girls with mild autism may be better able to mask their symptoms and thus go undiagnosed.b
    Teenage boys are four times more likely than girls to drop out of school and represent more than 75% of the children referred to special education in the U.S.b
    Boys are approximately three times more likely to be diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than girls are.b
    While men currently represent an even 50% of the U.S. workforce, they account for 94% of all on-the-job fatalities.d

    Prior to the 1900s, male nurses vastly outnumbered female nurses in almost every country
    Prior to the 1900s, male nurses were far more common than female nurses in nearly every country in the world. In current times, men now make up only 5.4% of registered nurses in the U.S. and only 13% of new nursing students in the now-female-dominated field.d
    Men are nearly three times more likely than women to abuse alcohol and twice as likely to abuse recreational drugs like marijuana and cocaine.a
    Higher levels of testosterone in boys and men generally cause greater levels of aggression, competition, self-assertion, and self-reliance than in women. In addition, the amygdala (the part of the brain involved in producing emotion) is typically larger in males, resulting in more aggressive, uncontrollable emotions.a
    According to the U.S. Department of Justice, men are four times more likely than women to be murdered and 10 times more likely to commit murder. Both female and male offenders are more likely to target male victims.h
    In nearly every country in the world, men are more than twice as likely to commit suicide than women. In some countries (such as Russia and Brazil), suicide rates among men are up to six times higher than those for women.e
    The average adult male has about 50% more muscle mass and 50% less body fat than the average adult female.a
    Of the more than 151 million men currently living in the U.S., approximately 64.3 million are fathers.g
    The word “dad” entered the English language in the sixteenth century and is believed to have originated from the Welsh word tad, meaning father. The word “father” comes from the Old English term faeder and was first used in the 1500s.c
    According to a 2008 estimate, there are approximately 140,000 stay-at-home fathers in the U.S. who are the primary caretakers for their children while their wives work outside the home.g
    The first Father’s Day celebration in the U.S. was held on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington, and was conceived of by Sondra Dodd. After listening to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909, Dodd wished to have a day of recognition for her father as well. Father’s Day became a nationally celebrated holiday in 1972 when the third Sunday in June was designated by public law as a day of recognition for fathers.g

    Topaz,

    I am just wondering if they teach you that women are more tolerant to pain than mean in your studies? Is it based on conditioning or natural differences in the male/female body? Do endorphins pump up to compensate for high pain thresholds equally.

    A joke but still each joke has a kernel of truth. If one states women have a higher tolerance than men because they give birth as their basis.. I ask.. has a man given birth and related the information back? If women have such a high tolerance for pain, why do I know more women who skip work because of a migraine than men?

    Seriously, I am just curious. If I went through a Joe Theisman injury (probably wearing adidas shoes) and you went through the same injury.. would the tolerance level balance be in your favor? If you ***** me hard enough do I not produce endorphins like you?

    (So I googled the question and got this- Do the difference in receptors make the case? Do opioids work too well for men at the wrong times? Do I ask a redhead if anything hurts? )

    For years, researchers assumed that women have a higher pain threshold and are less sensitive to pain than men. After all, men don't have to pass a head the circumference of a large grapefruit through an opening that starts at the diameter of a Cheerio as women do to give birth.

    But recent research has called into question the assumption that women have greater pain tolerance. Science is providing new insights into pain relief, anesthesia and, oddly enough, redheads.

    Jeffrey Mogil, Ph.D., is professor of pain studies at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He explains that while not all studies have found sex differences, those which have all point in the same direction that contradicts conventional wisdom. "Females are more sensitive to pain, less tolerant and more able to discriminate different levels of pain than males," he says. This is true in studies of both humans and animals.

    Women are also much more likely to suffer from chronic pain conditions than men. Researchers originally suspected that this was primarily due to the fact that they are more likely to seek medical care in general. But while women do indeed seek more care, they're also genuinely more likely to develop painful conditions like fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and migraines. For example, 80 to 90 percent of people with fibromyalgia are women, according to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases.

    Pregnancy actually is the exception to the rule. While pregnant, women do become progressively less sensitive to pain as they get closer to giving birth. Natural painkillers like endorphins are elevated during pregnancy and labor, helping fight pain.

    Says Mogil, studies show "there is [pregnancy-related pain relief] in both rats and humans," but, he adds, very little research has been done on this in recent decades. He also notes that it's not very effective in humans, given the amount of pain that most women still suffer.

    Qualitative differences

    Scientists have discovered that women's experience of pain may be not only quantitatively different, but qualitatively as well. And here's where the redheads come in.

    Anesthesiologists had long reported that redheads tended to need more anesthesia than others. But until 2002, no studies had been presented on the subject. Up until that point, it could have just been a clinical myth prompted by a few memorable anesthesia-resistant Gingers. However, when a research group in Louisville, Ky., studied the phenomenon, they found that redheads did indeed need larger doses of a common anesthetic—about 20 percent higher, on average—to blunt the pain from electrical shock.

    This finding turned out to only be part of the story.

    In research conducted by Mogil's group on opioid medications, only redheaded women were different from others in the way these drugs relieved their pain. Plus they needed less opioid painkillers than brunettes or blondes. Male redheads were the same as everyone else.


    Why would this be?

    It turns out that processing pain involves a receptor which, when mutated, produces red hair and fair skin, among other changes. This receptor—the MC1r receptor— was initially thought to occur only in the skin. However, it has now been found in the brain, and there, in women, it's part of the pathway that processes pain.

    "In males, an NMDA receptor processes pain that can be modulated by opioids," says Mogil. "In females, there appear to be no NMDA receptors involved. Instead, women use the MC1r receptors." In redheads, that receptor is mutated, and this makes opioids work more efficiently for them.

    In fact, Mogil says that opioids probably work better for women than men in general—and this may be due to the different pathways involved.

    Overall, the research so far shows how complicated pain is—the genetics that underlie the effects of anesthesia (which kills pain by causing numbness or unconsciousness) are different from those that determine the effects of analgesia (which reduces or eliminates pain without numbness or unconsciousness).


    These findings also mean that both genders need to be studied in pain research so that any differences can be discovered—and accounted for in treatment.

    What does this mean if you're a redhead?

    Natural redheads undergoing surgery should be sure that their physicians know that their hair is naturally that color—and people who dye their hair red may want to be sure their anesthesiologists are aware of this as well, so that anesthesia doses can be adjusted accordingly if needed.

    When it comes to using opioids, carrot tops should be careful to start with the lowest effective dose. It's possible that increased sensitivity could mean that they are at higher risk for overdose, though this has not been proven.

    Yup!

    We only just wrapped up the singles leagues. My 3.5 team is headed to singles districts. My 4.0 team just lost in the finals of playoffs the other night. Not too shabby for a team of new 4.0s and 'old' 3.5s. A heartbreaker still though, especially since I was watching my captain lose to a gal I beat 3 and 2 during the season. Eh hem. We lost 1-2.

    3.5 has started in DC, Moco, and NOVA. I play my second 3.5 match tonight, my first 4.0 match Saturday. My 4.0 NOVA only just had their first match...we had a late, late start.

    And somehow, gotta keep those dubs skills going, mixed districts will be here before we know it!

    My finals wrap up Monday. Perhaps Tuesday we can arrange a racquet exchange??? :)

    My head just exploded. When I put it back together and have more time (about to leave to teach some lessons) I'll get back to you.

    Though, my gut answer is to say that sometimes, anectdotal (sp?) evidence goes much further than any research study.

    Just a quick "woohoo" CB. Here's hoping the entire Blue family is doing well.

    And just what the hell are you doing posting here? LOL

    We decided against the Cord Blood thing. 'Course, we also decided against the amnio even though I was in a high-risk category (mostly because of age). Rolled the dice then, figure we'll roll it on the long-term stuff too. I'm a firm believer in the abilities of modern science...but probably not in my lifetime. Either they won't have the technology or we won't have the funds. The latter, I'm guessing.

    Maybe Topaz could chime in on it.

    As for womens "greater" tolerance to pain, eh, I don't know. What I am convinced of is some sort of convenient "memory loss" associated with it. If we didn't have it, there's no way any of us would have ever had a second (at least by choice. Cave man mentality stay away :p ).

    Again, I'm not Irish but the sentiment is true:

    May she always walk in sunshine.
    May she never want for more.
    May Irish angels rest their wings
    beside her nursery door.

    I sort of agree. Just being the lone caps fan in a new York bar requires a bit of a work around to cheer c a p s caps caps caps. Brutal game.

    I did Cord Blood Storage. I'd have to go back and look at what company we used.
