tennis coaching in tokyo ?

I am looking for a tennis coaching center in tokyo (KANTO area). If anyone knows, please inform me.

Yahoo answers:

Shinagawa Sports Hills has tennis facilities and coaching – http://www.shinagawa-sports-hills.com/tennis/hitennis.html

There is a large indoor tennis center at Jungu Mae Stadium. No information on web.

On my way to work, on the Odakyuu Line I see a tennis center in the Setagaya ward, http://www.ptc.or.tv/


The above link has info on tennis courts in Tokyo and Kanto.

City (public) sports centers have tennis courts and lessons. I take my kids to the Nishi Hara sports center (Shibuya-ku) for karate and swimming, they have links to group and private coaching tennis coaching. The center also has a large facility. I have also been to the Shinjuku-ku public sports centers. There are two major facilities in the Takadanobaba area. The place is called the Cosmic Sports Center.

Mary asks…

Any life coaches out there?

How do life coaches who conduct their business 99% online locate clients? How does one keep their life coaching web site from being lost in cyberspace? I want to start life coaching but am confused as to how client’s will find me.

Yahoo answers:

First get the best possible training you can afford, and check out the international coaching federation and recommended courses. Remember that learning never, ever stops, you must be dedicated to reading and listening and attending workshops and seminars to stay on top of things. Understand that the people that will be drawn to you are perfect for your qualifications, this is a simple law of our world.
Create a business plan by downloading from Microsoft {if you have purchased a Microsoft program} or Mac {if that is what you have} and/or through the government website or through the government small business resources found in your region. By doing this you can research and plan what methods and ideas will work and what will not work. This is critical, because most businesses fail due to a lack of plan, or a poorly researched plan.
Then I suggest being creative, and knocking on doors, phoning people and businesses, holding seminars on topics of interest, and joining plenty of groups.

Coaching Websites Questions

Ken asks…

Coach purses: several questions?

So I have 2 Coach purses. I have read several websites that mention that the dust bag is dark brown and the string is red. But the dust bags that I have is dark brown and the string color is kinda like a khaki color.
**Is it because it was bought at a department stores, and not at the Coach store?** (I bought the purses at 2 different department stores.

**Whats the difference between the purses they sell at the Coach store and the ones at the department stores?**
I have seen some say, that only “certain” purses are sold at Coach, and the others ones are sold at places like Dillard’s and Macy’s. I see no difference since I have seen some purses at those stores at the same time in Coach stores. The only difference I see, you get 15-20% off if you open a credit card with Macy’s or Dillard’s.

I have read that if you get a Coach purse, that you get a certificate of authenticity.
**Do/Did you get a certificate of authenticity if you buy/bought the Coach purse at Dillard’s or Macy’s?**
I didn’t get a certificate of authenticity at all for neither purse that I bought at Dillards and Macys. **Can I get one if I take my purse to the Coach store?** or **do you only get the certificate of authenticity if you buy your purse at Coach store?**

thanks for answering my many questions in regards to Coach purses..lol

FYI..the zippers on both purses do have the ykk on them.

Yahoo answers:

Whew,that’s a lot of questions,I will try to help as best as i know.
1) Both stores you mentioned are authorized to sell Coach products,so you shouldn’t have to worry about authenticity.
2)There are some exclusive Coach,Coach.com and Bleecker Street items,but most are the same bags that are sold at the department stores,the only difference is that the Coach store does not run sales,and sometimes the department stores have the collections there for a bit longer than the Coach store
3)The older dust bags were brown with red string,but they have recently changed to satiny brown with tan strings (also some are white with brown strings,and special edition bags can be other colors)
4)As far as a certificate of authenticity,usually the bags will come with a small card describing the care of that particular style of bag,but I suppose that could be easy enough to lose or overlook
Again,if you bought the bags at the stores you mentioned,I would not worry,they sell authentic Coach.If they were bought from another source (like eBay or craigslist) that could be another story completely.
Hope this helps!

Coach purses…cheaper?

I’ve been trying to find some cute coach tote bags. Especially those in the poppy category.
I love the fashion, but I was wondering if there was any place that I could find the same Coach purses, with the same quality, cheaper.

I found this website online.


I just want to know if this website is real?
Or fake? I think it’s pretty real. Can’t be fake, right?

Yahoo answers:

The similar Coach bags but cheaper i found at this website http://www.bagsindex.com/product/category/Coach-Bags-0-23-69-1.html?af=4 ,Trust me this is website to go to .

Donna asks…

Are the Coach bags seen on this website real?

I am trying to find a cheap but nice Coach purse for my girlfriend’s birthday. Are the ones on this page legit?


Yahoo answers:

Fake. The c’s dont line up. On a real coach bag all four c’s touch. And the clip on the strap is horrid. Coach uses real metal not fake copper clips. Dont purchase it. The strap itself is supposed to be real leather and clearly its not. And the zipper is all wrong. And the tag should say coach on both sides not just one. Dont purchase it.

Paul asks…

Coach Wristlet Ideas?

I am teenager and i NEED a wristlet. I’m looking for one from coach. If you have any ideas for cute wristlets, please add the links to the wristlets!

thanks :)

Yahoo answers:

Hahah like 90% of my friends have coach wristlets! They’re really cute :)
Anyways, since the Coach website doesn’t have direct links, I looked them up on google.

1. I think this is called the Signature Stripe Wristlet (Khaki and Pink). I think it’s really cute.

2.This is the Heritage Stripe wristlet (Khaki and Berry). You should be able to find this at an outlet store. Because the material is PVC, it’s pretty resistant and should be able to last a long time.


3. No idea what this one is called. But I think it’s cute :)


4. This is the new Poppy C Wristlet. I think they come in purple, pink, and gold.


5. These are other Coach wristlets that I don’t know the names of, but they look nice. I think the first one is limited edition.


I couldn’t post that many links, but you can search up “Coach Wristlet” on google and a bunch of results will come up.
I hope I helped, and good luck on getting your wristlet! :)

My tennis team is going to give our coach a gift at the end of the season, but we need ideas. We’ll probably get him flowers, but something else more personal would be good.

Can I get into any Ivy-League college?

I’m a 15 years old Belgian highschool student interested in Economics. Can I get into a Ivy-League college (I prefer Harvard) with the following stats?
- I study Economics-Mathematics (6 hrs of Mathematics and 5hrs of Economics per week)
- Extracurriculars: – I play soccer.
– I’m in a youth movement from when I was 7 years old.
– I play the guitar.
– Should I maybe do community service as well?
- Languages: I speak Dutch, French and English fluently. I also speak a little bit of german too.
- GPA: – Mathematics: around 4.0
– Economics around 4.5
– Overall: should be around 4.0
Greetings, Warre

Yahoo answers:

Harvard does accept international students, as do most US universities.
Harvard’s acceptance rate is 6%. Meaning 94% of all applications are denied. Harvard’s undergrad international student population is about 8%.
Just great grades is not enough. They look for students who are outstanding. Who are leaders. They are not just doing community service, they have come up with a project, coordinated it between the school and community, gotten other students to join in, headed up the project to completion.
They look for well rounded students who do more than academics.
You play soccer. Are you the team captain? Have you done anything with it? Coached younger kids? Won any championships?

You will need to take the SAT I exam- www.collegeboard.org
Check each US school’s web site to see if they require any SAT II subject exams
For Harvard and any Ivy League school you need to score at least a 2100 on the SAT

how to imporve my chances of getting into the raf as a pilot?

I’m currently studying for GCSE’s and I have the goal of being an Raf officer and pilot, preferably flying the Sentinel R1, The c-130 hercules, C-17 globemaster or the Chinook. I’m going to study Biology/ Chemistry/ physics/ and psycology for A Levels. I’ve researched the requirements but I’m hoping for some advice on how to better my chances and get ahead of the competition, I’ve looked into Air cadets however there is not a squadron near enough to me. However I do alot of kayaking and have knocked up around 200 hours of coaching and have lead various groups. I’m currently going to take my 4* leadership award in sea kayaking, I’ve done work for a sailing trust and raced their boats. I’m also a keen and experienced mountain biker and I feel like I have a good level of fitness. I used to play in football team for 4 years and managed to win our local leagues 2 times. At the moment im looking into maths courses aside from A levels as I feel this is a weaker subject (predicted B at GCSE) although I have experience with speed/distance/time with kayak navigation etc…Any advice on how I can boost my application and chances is greatly appreciated and 10 points for the best answer =) P.S

Linda asks…

Honers diploma to get a scholarship?

I am a senior in high school and i don’t know if it is like this at other high schools but at mine we have 2 different classes, Honors diploma and standard diploma. I am in standard diploma and i was wondering if you have to be in honors to qualify for scholarships. I am very worried about this please help! and if it helps any i am from alabama. THANKS!!!

Yahoo answers:

Not necessarily. There are scholarships for students who earn average grades.

Read the information here:
* US News and World Report Article:


and here:
* FinAid.org Article:


Please keep in mind that many other students will be applying for the same scholarships & only a few or maybe just 1 will be awarded. Do not pin all your hopes of higher education financing on being awarded enough scholarship/grant funds to cover all your college expenses.

I hope you have been saving any gift money & earnings – as much as possible for a number of years.

Once high school resumes for the 2012-13 school year talk with a HS counselor to learn how to pick a school that will meet your education & career needs & your budget. Learn the ins & outs of college/univ. Financial aid, including learning about the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid – http://www.fafsa.ed.gov ) which will need to be completed & submitted early in 2013.

The colleges/universities* that interest you may have scholarship/grant funds for just their own students. Staff members of the colleges/universities may need the info from your completed FAFSA or may need a completed CSS Profile (from the College Board – https://profileonline.collegeboard.com/prf/index.jsp ) to determine if you will be awarded any scholarships/grants.

*By colleges/universities I mean: local taxing district funded community colleges, state government funded colleges & universities, & private/independent non-profit colleges/universities (not to be confused with for-profit/career/proprietary colleges, which 1st & foremost are businesses with the main focus of earning profits for their shareholders.)

I recommend the following databases for searching for some scholarships for which you may qualify and may wish to apply:

Scholarship Search from the well-respected College Board:
* https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/scholarship-search
Click on the Start button.
If you choose to register (free – registration is not required) to return later & modify your search strategy, feel secure you will not receive spam emails. Don’t select too many defining terms in your search strategy, which may result in a poor scholarship search result.

CollegeNet Mach25 Scholarship Search database:
* http://www.collegenet.com/mach25/app
No registration required. If you use the Profile Search option, don’t include a large number of Misc. Identifiers or you may have an unsuccessful search result. I think the Keyword Search option is the easiest. Scholarships specific to particular colleges/universities are included in the Mach25 database.

With the results of both scholarship search databases you will have to look at each scholarship option in the results and the info on the scholarship granting organization web pages to determine if you qualify to apply.

Beware of many other “scholarship search” web sites. Many have info on contests & require registration to use, resulting in a lot of spam email. Read their privacy policies very carefully regarding selling/giving your info to 3rd parties. If they sell/give your info to 3rd parties, avoid them.

When you do find a scholarship for which you want to apply, make sure you meet the scholarship requirements, be sure to follow the application rules to the letter; use perfect spelling, grammar & punctuation; & submit your application before the deadline.

Sandy asks…

what to ask a West Point recruiter?

It may seem like I’m flattering myself here, but I AM NOT. I fucking hate that.
Anyways, I’m going to Seattle tomorrow for an Army event. I even scheduled 5 minutes to talk to the actual West Point recruiter. Since 7th grade the military is the occupation I decided to live. I’ve gone from wanting to become a Navy fighter pilot, to be in a nuclear submarine, to want to become a paratrooper, or Special Forces, or scout-sniper, or EOD. As you can see that’s a hell lot and impossible. Since freshman year I had decided to become a Marine. My plans were to enlist after high school. Even though I’m not delayed entry, I’ve been going to the Marine poolee functions for the past two years, and established my own leader-like position there. But being a senior now I have begun to think more about my parents. Going to a university, and help my family advance. I’m being honest here: my family has been on welfare for a while, working (doing REAL work) to put food on the table. I could enlist but by doing that I’m only thin king of myself. Going to university I am in the military AND it’s better for my family. I’m tired of doing yard work and fruit orchards. Even though I’ve been biased for Marines, the Army also has my respect, as they established their part in history. I’d rather enlist and put 20 years to become a Gunny, because it’s always appeared to me that the NCO’s are closer to the troops, getting the experience and knowing what to do. But I figured that if I got a commission I wouldn’t be different. After all I’ve done my homework. In the past years I’ve spoken to many veterans, read military memoirs/non-fiction, watched documentaries, etc. Anyone that knows me recognizes me by that. “Angel who? You mean that guy who’s into the military?” and whatever else.

I believe that I’m not what West Point looks for TRADITIONALLY. I have the intelligence, but I’m not the person with the straight A’s and National Honor Society. My grades have been good nonetheless. I’m not involved in school government, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be a leader. I’m captain of the cross country team and varsity. I’ve done wrestling too, and am a good public speaker. I have no trouble speaking in front of large groups of people. Speech and debate team. I hate science, but I love math. AP Calc.

All being said, what are good questions to ask tomorrow at the Seattle Army event?

Yahoo answers:

Since the service academies generally only recruit for athletics and diversity, and don’t generally recruit athletes at Army events, I am guessing that you are meeting a West Point Diversity recruiter rather than a coach or a MALO(Military Academy Liaison Officer.)


Your extracurriculars- cross country, wrestling, speech and debate- sound perfect for a service academy candidate. Leadership does not only mean student government. Athletic team captain is considered one of the highest forms of leadership to the service academies. If you have been working to help support your family that will also be considered as part of your extracurricular composite, and leadership in work will also be considered. Your writing style indicates that you are well read and if you do well in Math and are doing well in AP Calculus, then even if you do not have the most competitive class rank, Gpa and Sat or Act scores, the service academy may be willing to offer you a year at the United States Military Academy Prep School(USMAPS) to help you to become competitive for an appointment to West Point. It sounds like you may need to further prep in Chemistry and Physics to be able to do well in the first two years pre-engineering curriculum at all service academies. Ask the recruiter your chances at a direct appointment and also your chances at being appointed a Cadet Candidate to USMAPS. It would help to know your actual class rank based on weighted Gpa; weighted Gpa; any trends in Gpa, sophomore year is given greater weight than junior year and junior year is given more weight than sophomore year, grades in English, Math, Chemistry and Physics. The stated purpose of the service academy prep schools since Dod Directive 1322.22(1994) has been to prep minorities and enlisted service members for appointment to the service academies but in practice the prep schools are primarily used to prep and redshirt athletes, then to prep minorities with enlisted service members making up between around 7% to 15% of each service academy prep school’s students.
See 1322.22 on page 8:


If you are a D1 caliber athletic recruit for X-C then you should also contact the X-C Coach at West Point. Over one quarter of each freshman class at est Point consists of recruited athletes.


If you are not offered an appointment or a year at Usmaps, another possibility is to self prep at one of the five military junior colleges. Since you want an appointment to West Point, that is possible on ECP Scholarship.



You need to apply for nominations from your rep and two state senators. Go to their web pages and look for information on how to apply. Some have already stopped accepting applications. Most accept applications till November 1. If appointed to Usmaps a nomination is not required. Also need to prep for and take the Sat and Act. The Sat Math tests Algebra 1 and 2 and Geometry. The Act Math also tests Trigonometry.
The selection process is nearly identical at West Point, the Naval Academy and the Air Force Academy, so, whatever is stated on one service academy website or in its catalog with regard to admissions, course selection etc generally holds for the others. If you read the following answer and open the links it should help to explain the selection process and the path to an appointment:


Helpful to take an Act that offers TIR(Test Information Release.) Only about three Act exam dates per year do.


The Air Force Academy website offers outstanding advice to students prepping for a service academy, rotc scholarship or any highly selective university. Open all links to the left of the dialog box. Be sure to open the “Leadership Preparation” link and read it carefully.”


Page 19 of Chapter 2 of the Naval Academy Catalog indicates classes for a high school student to take to make himself competitive for admission. The classes are arranged in a hierarchy:


For colleges that require them, schedule Sat Subject tests to coincide with the AP or Final Exam in the class. An extracurricular reading program, looking up unknown words in a dictionary will help with Cr scores, even as little as twenty minutes a day.


The military considers that the primary goal should be to serve as an officer regardless of service branch or commissioning source. Applying to more than one commissioning program tends to strengthen each application.
Good Luck!

Coaching Web Design Questions

Betty asks…

Does this coach bag look real or not? And if it is fake how can you tell?


Yahoo answers:

Look for a serial number somewhere inside the purse, usually punched into the leather. . .all the designer bags have that. ALSO. . .every year Coach has a collection, you can search the web site and see if that style of bag actually existed in the design line.

Bag looks authentic but hard to tell without seeing it in person.

HELP!?! –What other job(s) should i take up besides being a full-time pharmacist? real estate, what?>?

i’m still in high school, but i see older adults who (for example), are professors @ unversity level, and are also real estate agents. others are secretaries who also do translations separately.
What should i plan for? I know pharmacists get okay money, but I know I will need more.

Yahoo answers:

Real estate, even part time, can be demanding. But also rewarding. Other possibilities: teaching (as a substitute or one class at a college), coaching (very rewarding, fun, and active), personal training (will keep you in shape too), massage therapist, waiting tables, retail associate, web design, own an ebay store or cafe store online, etc… The possibilities are endless!

Best Wishes.

Joseph asks…

How to narrow down career path options?

My problem is that I’m interested in everything. I’ve always wanted to become something in the medical field, but this year I’ve become burnt out on it all somewhat. Not a good omen if I actually get a medical job.

Many of the things I’m interested in either
A) Have almost no job openings (that I think I’d like)
B) Don’t relate to each other

I love theology (I don’t want to be a nun or a college professor)
I love computers
I love foreign languages
& I think I’ll always have a love for human anatomy/ behavior.

Lately I’ve been looking into anthropology. It’s beginning to interest me.

Note: I’m not a strong math student. Physics make me want to punch babies.
I want to get a bachelor’s degree…master’s eventually.

Basically my question is: How do I narrow down my career path options?
Any suggestions?

Yahoo answers:

The first suggestion to you is prayer! It works. You are blessed to have too many gifts and interests rather than none. Ask yourself what flows naturally for you? Sometimes the most random things can fall right into alignment when it is God’s calling on your life.
I urge you to create a list in addition to your interests. List off your gifts. What are you good at? What talents do you have? What do people compliment you on regularly that you may have overlooked. I can guarantee you that it will begin to make sense.
Here is an example. I liked art, (drawing and painting). I like communications talking to different people. I became really good at researching and writing (my undergrad degree was in History) But I could not figure out how any of these skills made sense. I started doing life coaching and offer web design along with it. This brought together all of my gifts as random as they seemed.
So my advice to you is don’t neglect what you love but see how it all comes together. When considering spending money for school you definitely need to figure out what you really want to learn more about because if it is something that you are not only talented in but you want to learn more about it your grades will be a lot better than forcing yourself down a career path and curriculum that you mildly like or even hate.
Instead of looking at the specific major first off think about what you would like to see yourself doing with your interests. (ex: helping orphans, hosting a talk show, feeding the homeless etc.) And then go from there! I hope this helps.

Paul asks…

Am I being unrealistic?

Is my list of things I want to learn too big? Can I teach myself all of these things without college?
I want to learn more on:

Computer hardware maintenance/repair
Software fixes
3d animation
Video editing
Designing websites
Graphic Design

I also don’t know which I would choose to start my own business with, though I suppose a lot of them would work under the same business. Any advice?

Yahoo answers:

Well, it is not unrealistic, even great that you have dared to take this challenge, it is possible even though without the collage or any coaching classes.

I recommend you to focus only on 3D animations, Video Editing, Web design/developing, and Graphic design.

I do not see any specialty of learning ‘Software fixing’ because it is not even a subject.
Hardware repair can be a hazardous job!

Learn above mentioned subjects though learning websites, like for web designing you can use http://www.w3schools.com/ etc.

All you need to have keen interest on the subject, also you need to enjoy your lessons, because it helps to learn better and faster!

I hope you start a amazing career :)

Good luck

Steven asks…

who is your favorite fashion designer?

I want to add in my web site : www.topfashionlinks.com
Features an extensive collection of biographical information on fashion designers , fashion brands , fashion magazines, fashion school, universities and colleges, fashoin models and fashion photographers.

Yahoo answers:

Betsy Johnson has awesome designs. (shoes, clothing, handbags, jewelry, footwear, and recently perfume)

Her style is a little out there and ‘funky’, but I always love all the bright colors she uses in her designs. She also uses a lot of floral prints in her shoe collections.

The designer label Missoni has bright colors and patterns in their line of clothes and shoes as well.

I am also a big fan of Juicy Couture, it’s a little snobby and princess-like, with lots of pink, but everyone here in Memphis is obsessed with it.

COACH is also extremely popular on the University of Memphis campus, COACH handbags are like THE thing to have.

As far as a good university for fashion, I’ve heard great things about Syracuse University. I have a friend that goes there right now that’s studying fashion design. I think that’s also where Betsy Johnson graduated from.

Hope some of this helps!

Coaching Web Pages Questions

Helen asks…

How Do I show my coach Im good enough to play in Tennis Games?

I have been playing tennis for 2 years now. I am not the best in my team but I have been MVP/Team Captain and top 3 players (Ranked #2) on the Junior Varsity Team as a Sophomore. I am a Junior now and have become substantially better. My 1st serve (65mph – 100mph) goes in 3 out 5 times. My second serve is a serve in which i just stand and spike the ball (I’m tall enough to do this I’m 6’1″). My groundstrokes are low and fast and my backhand needs some work but they reletivly go about 2 – 3 feet over the net. All the best players on the team say im good because im able to compete with them. Not being able to win but able to practice with them. My coach on the other hand thinks im terrible. My JV coach knows im good, Calls me fearless at the net(I got this nickname when someone smashed the ball into my face, Bleeding where it hit and i still returned it and continued playing). My Varsity coach puts me for exhibition. I am ok with this since i know i am not as good as other players but the players he puts in for the 4th doubles are not of my standards and i beat them both in singles and could easily do so in a 2 on 1 match. This has been goin on for a week now. It reached the limit today because my coach made me play with someone who had mental disabilities. It was pathetic. The best players on our team even tell me that i should be on 4th doubles for our school team(The ones that actually matter). My coach told me we have a match on monday and hes taking top 14. I asked if im going he said i dont know. That sentence ticked me off. I am better then more then half the team and he is considering if he should take me. I am on the verge of quitting. The assistant coach who only practices with people who are good at tennis lets me practice with them and yet my coach takes people who are terrible and puts them ahead. I do not wanna quit because tennis is all i have. Its the only thing in which i have potential the only sport i truly have fun and competition in.

Yahoo answers:

Hmm, seems like you’re unhappy. You say you’re being treated unfairly, but you also say you’re not strong enough to play singles for this particular high school team.

3 out of 5 first serves is 60% – not bad, but I wouldn’t brag about it. What do you mean by “spike the ball?” Does that mean you just pop it, with no finish, no throwing motion, where the racket hand goes past the opposite leg? If that’s your second serve, then again, you have no right to complain about being on the JV team.

In my humble opinion, with this kind of skill level, you’re fortunate to get any playing time at all. OTOH, most high school players are not that strong, from my perspective. However, some schools will have a few players with decent sectional USTA rankings.

A lot of hokey things happen in tennis, even at the college level and the pro’s, believe it or not.

***My coach told me we have a match on monday and hes taking top 14. I asked if im going he said i dont know. That sentence ticked me off. I am better then more then half the team and he is considering if he should take me. I am on the verge of quitting.***

If you’re truly unhappy, quit the team, and take lessons at the tennis club and play there. Otherwise, keep your mouth shut, and instead, ask what you can do to help other guys on the team. IMHO, your me-me-me paradigm of thinking is a turn-off to anyone who listens to you.

You may, in fact, be absolutely correct, but complaining too much will work against you. Therefore, when nobody is watching, work your butt off *on your own:*

hitting serves,
ball machine [almost every stroke in the game]
getting up early in the morning to go hit with a friend,
wall ball,
volleys, overheads, drop shots, lobs,
studying instructional video,
tennis books and magazines
Pro matches on Tennis Channel, ESPN2 OR ESPN3.com
Go see a college match or the pro’s if it’s within driving distance
talk to teaching professionals in your area, get some ideas

Does the coach have ladder competition during the year? Some coaches have ladder matches once a week for the entire season, while others set the ladder at the beginning of the year, and that’s it – you’re stuck wherever you happen to be. I prefer an “open market,” where guys usually get rewarded for working hard on their tennis with ladder match victories. Guys who don’t want to work normally lose in their ladder matches, because they’re not doing anything on their own. Once a week ought to be frequent enough to hold ladder matches, IMHO. This is a very tough sport, and most people don’t realize it, but you probably do by now.

Try to think *long-term* about your tennis. If you’re really working as hard as you possibly can, you skill level will go up significantly at some point in the future. This is what it’s all about; working hard in practice sessions, practice sets & practice matches, repeating a stroke [correctly] 1000′s of times until it’s automatic, etc. It’s not glamorous, but if you put in the time, that’s what it takes. There is no other way to get better that I know of.

Know what your strengths are and what your weaknesses are. Work on ALL of them.

Sportsmanship might not be #1, but it’s way ahead of whatever is in 2nd place. Ignore fools who tell you that winning is all that matters.
Here is a page from the USTA web site where you can download different elements of the rules of tennis: http://www.usta.com/Improve-Your-Game/Ru…

Read “The Code” in addition to the “ITF Rules of Tennis” once or twice a year. I also recommend downloading or buying “Friend at Court.” Not sure whether USTA has sold its entire supply of printed F.A.C. Books at this time.

Best of luck :-)

Well there is no way on the COACH website the best way i would say is……look on the inside of the bag…..it gives you a serial no. Usually looks like ****-***** the last digits are the style number…..go to google and type in coach and then those last digits….pics of the AUTHENTIC bag will show up if its authentic….if you would like i can look at a pic of the bag and tell you if its real or not just let me know i’m like a big COACH fanatic and can spot a fake a mile away…..so hopefully i helped

helpp on picking coach sneakers!?

how much are coach sneakers?
can anyone givve me links of websites of coach sneakers.
which color is the best?
& also anyone that bought coach sneakers before
what do u think of them?

Yahoo answers:

Coach sneakers are between $88-$248
You can get them in stores at Macy’s or Nordstroms (not on the website though)
You can get them at the Coach website though =]


I like:


in Black, Brown, or Blue. They are all cute =]
Just choose by which color you have most of in your wardrobe. Or you could always go with the black because basic black matches with almost everything!

And I have a pair like the ones to the link above, but mine were white with multi-colored scribble C’s on them (they don’t sell them anymore) they are very comfortable and last long too. They’re worth the money.

Hope this helps =]

what happened to heritage coach bag?

does anyone know what happened to the heritage coach bag? i was planning to buy it and when i checked back on their page yesterday it wasn’t there anymore, this bag has only been out for two months. the other heritage striped bag is kind of of “canvasy” material and i like the other ones; it would be a great help if anyone could tell me where i could get it.
the one i wanted was a tote and it was light pink with teh original “C” and a silver stripe in teh middle

Yahoo answers:

The Coach website only keeps bags on the site for about 2 months or so,then they move on to the next collection.Usually you can find styles at department stores(or their websites)that sell Coach-like Macy’s- for a little longer.If not you can call Coach’s 800 number and they can help you by letting you know where it is still being sold.Usually,the Coach Factory stores will get the old collections so if you have one near you you could call them also.Hope this helps!Good luck!

Ruth asks…

International Student can get Financial Aid?

Yahoo answers:

Your question is missing a lot of necessary information to provide you with a good answer.

You do not state the country where you are not a citizen and where you would like to attend university and possibly receive some financial aid to attend.

In case you are hoping to find financial aid to help pay university costs at a school in the USA, there may be some sources you can explore/research.

Often the university to which an international student wishes to apply to for admittance and attend may have some scholarship/grant funds for accepted international students. That information will be found on the university’s web pages for financial aid, scholarships, and/or international students. If there are some US universities that interest you, check the university’s web pages for that information.

University of West Florida (http://www.uwf.edu ) has a PDF document with a list of possible sources of financial aid for international students (collected Feb. 2012)


You would also need to apply for and obtain a US student visa, which has the requirement of providing proof (documentation) that the student has all the money needed to cover all of his/her living and school expenses while he/she is studying and living in the USA. This is the link to the US Dept. Of State information on student visas:

To obtain a US student visa, you will also need to be accepted by a US school, which will need to issue you a US Department of Justice Form I-20, verifying you are accepted as a student at the school.

A question to PARENTS….. may I have your opinion?

I am considering volunteering my energies in the Kids Incorporated energies – beginning this Fall.

When I was a youth, I played in many sports activities through my local Kids Inc. chapter.
35 or more years later (now) I’m considering volunteering in this same org, this time as A COACH or a REFEREE in some sport activity.

I have no kids (I am still single) I’m wondering how / if this might make my application to volunteer look “suspicious” to the org.

http://www.kidsinc.org is the web-site.

Thanks for opinions.

It’s all about how you act around the children. If your record is clear of anything “suspicious” then you are fine. That’s why they do the background checks.

Spending 3 lakhs to study SAP in Seimens is woth (as a B.tech fresher) ?

Yahoo answers:

I believe it ain’t, they earn/reap all the revenue(benefits) through the likely similar candidates…..

Whereas i can’t see myself sitting amongst bunch of individuals who do not have the ability/capability/capacity,even if they don’t(it’s not about giving a try,no trials or errors),it’s called learning on your own & overcoming obstacles & challenges that are posed by the unforseen circumstances…….

Hence i believe ‘one who wins himself,wins the world’

I too don’t wanna pull this,let me cut it short,SAP Is long gone & people out there pay lavishly to learn, yet if you wish to then i suggest or recommend that instead of wasting your penies,go through the material,have your own practise session & challenge yourself to open a universe towards yourself,time won’t be far off while you would be as assertive as guys like me(we)……No need to worry,all the SAP Modules are free that to over the internet………

ACM(http://www.acm.org/ – ACM is an organisation) is one amongst the legiitimate & Profound Online coaching Sessions(Classes) For those who learn on their own,Where as for americans SAP Is long gone, We either work on generics or functionalities here.
Thus we’ve webpages that offer sap training material to learn SAP(Free of Cost),apart from SAP, Much of the Material is being given online & lateron prepare for the modules & tests.Take this for example :-http://www.miraclewisdom.com/index.jsp, Furthermore all this has become old & absolete for them, We get to follow them after several years.

What is SAP?
SAP, started in 1972 by five former IBM employees in Mannheim, Germany, states that it is the world’s largest inter-enterprise software company and the world’s fourth-largest independent software supplier, overall.

The original name for SAP was German: Systeme, Anwendungen, Produkte, German for “Systems Applications and Products.” The original SAP idea was to provide customers with the ability to interact with a common corporate database for a comprehensive range of applications. Gradually, the applications have been assembled and today many corporations, including IBM and Microsoft, are using SAP products to run their own businesses.

SAP applications, built around their latest R/3 system, provide the capability to manage financial, asset, and cost accounting, production operations and materials, personnel, plants, and archived documents. The R/3 system runs on a number of platforms including Windows 2000 and uses the client/server model. The latest version of R/3 includes a comprehensive Internet-enabled package.

SAP has recently recast its product offerings under a comprehensive Web interface, called mySAP.com, and added new e-business applications, including customer relationship management (CRM) and supply chain management (SCM).

As of January 2007, SAP, a publicly traded company, had over 38,4000 employees in over 50 countries, and more than 36,200 customers around the world. SAP is turning its attention to small- and-medium sized businesses (SMB). A recent R/3 version was provided for IBM’s AS/400 platform.

Lizzie asks…

can i go to westpoint without doing OCS?

I am a pvt-e-1 in the army and I want to go to westpoint to play football and get a teaching degree. I just don’t know if I have to do officer candidacy school to go to westpoint at all. I don’t really want to do ocs just because my mos is pretty cool now and I might lose it if I do ocs, that and I want to be a recruiter and I’ve never seen a recruiter as an officer, only nco’s thus far.

Yahoo answers:

OCS is a commissioning source for civilian and enlisted applicants with a college degree. Most Army Officers commission though Rotc while in college. About 20% commission through West Point. Army officers select a branch not an MOS.


Read the FAQ for soldiers applying to West Point on the West Point website. Also a good idea to read all the FAQ.


The FAQ should answer most questions. An enlisted applicant cannot apply anytime as stated in one of the FAQ’s. The application from enlisted applicants is due at West Point by the second Monday in January. From page 16-17 of the Usma Catalog:

Regular Army and
Reserve Components
This category is for enlisted members
of the Regular Army, Army Reserves,
and Army National Guard. To request a
nomination under this category, enlisted
members should submit a commander’s
endorsement with their applications.
This application must reach the
Director of Admissions by the second
Monday in January. Soldiers who are
not offered an appointment to West
Point are automatically considered for
enrollment in the U.S. Military Academy
Preparatory School (USMAPS). Some
applicants who fail to obtain admission
to West Point on their first tries enlist
in the Army and win appointments in
either the Regular Army or Reserve
Component category on their second
attempts. If interested, consult with an
Army, Army Reserve, or Army National
Guard recruiter.


If you are competitive for direct appointment to West Point, then you should also apply to the Rep and Senators of your state of residence for a nomination. Go to your Rep and Senator’s web pages and look for instructions on how to apply for a nomination. Most Reps and Senators stop accepting applications for a nomination between Mid October and early November. You can also apply for nominations to the Naval Academy, Air Force Academy and Merchant Marine Academy. If you are a D1 level Football Recruit, you should get in touch with the Football Coach at West Point. Very few enlisted applicants enter the Service Academies directly each year. Most are sent to the Service Academy Prep School for a year, but the overwhelming majority of Service Academy Prep School students are not prior enlisted. Most are Candidates the Service Academy has recruited for athletics and other academy goals. West Point did not publish the numbers this past year but the Naval Academy did and only 8% of Naval Academy Prep students were prior enlisted Sailors and Marines. The other 92% are high school students enlisted in the Navy Reserves and placed on active duty the day of entering the Prep School. This makes them eligible for an appointment on a Secretary of the Navy nomination on graduating from the Prep School, if they do not earn a nomination from another source during the Prep School year. Five Sailors and zero enlisted Marines entered the Naval Academy directly this past year. Seven Sailors entered from the Nuclear Power School. And an additional 15 Sailors and 7 Marines were appointed from the Naval Academy Prep School. 239 Additional Naval Academy Prep School Students who never served in the enlisted ranks were appointed to the Naval Academy. It is a similar story at West Point and the Air Force Academy, though not quite so biased against enlisted soldiers and airmen.


I would have used West Point examples but as you can see at the link below, West Point did not publish information regarding the composition of the Prep School Class:


The majors available at West Point are listed on page 33 of the West Point Catalog. A teaching degree is usually a Master’s Degree that includes a teaching credential. Choose a West Point major in the subject that you wish to teach.


Good Luck!

William asks…

Critique my college essay?

Thank you guys so much,

It is not often that something as small as ADHD can effect a person’s life, yet it has defined the man that I have become and has shaped the way in which I view myself and my responsibilities. I was only nine years old when I was diagnosed, by then it was obvious that I couldn’t finish projects and that I was having trouble paying attention in class. My elementary and middle school teachers did everything that they could to help me, but my disruptive behavior and falling grades slowly ate away at their patience. It was only in the summer after my eighth grade year that I finally realized how destructive my behavior had really become. Through maturity and mentoring from my teachers and coaches, I decided that I would no longer be the kid who I was all through middle school. I have not gotten in an ounce of trouble since I made that decision, something that I am extremely proud of. Although maturing was relatively quick and easy for me, it took longer to break some of the study habits that caused my grades to be lower than what I should have been receiving. During the first couple of years of high school, I still struggled to do my homework and properly prepare for my tests and classes. But I have improved, this year excelling in Honors Physics, a course that I was told I would not succeed in. I have used my past as a way to learn and improve, and with every day I am getting better at managing my time and schoolwork.
Not only have I turned around my attitude towards my education, I have also changed the way that I have approached both my life and my responsibilities. In the summer of my sophomore year, I took advantage of my computer and artistic skills and started a web design company, named J-Tek Web Consulting. In the two years since I started the business, I have created web presences for small to medium sized companies from all over the world, ranging from a medical practice in Virginia to a bike shop in Australia. At the end of my Junior year, I decided that though my web design business was great, it would also be beneficial to get a job in which I had a set schedule and work hours. With my own money, I paid my way through a thirty hour professional rescue course and got a job as a lifeguard at the local YMCA. During the summer, I made three water rescues and assisted in multiple medical emergencies, which taught me responsibility like I had never known before. Another one of my proudest achievements, is the fact that I taught myself to play the guitar without ever having taken lessons. Though these parts of my life were difficult and had their setbacks, I pushed myself and went against my nature in order to achieve some of the things that I am most proud of.

Yahoo answers:

Other than noting that the correct word in the first sentence is affect rather than effect and also that the point about ADHD being “something as small” is not clear, it is not really possible to offer an opinion on a college essay/personal statement without knowing the prompt and without having read the application. The essays/personal statements are meant to answer questions raised by the application and cannot be read in isolation.
This might be informative…




This is also excellent and informative if one keeps in mind that at British universities a student applies to study one subject. For instance, an Economics major spends three or four years essentially studying only Economics. On graduation, he is at the same level of knowledge in Economics as an American student with a Masters degree in Economics:

Getting back to the first sentence; it is not clear how ADHD is “small” or how it could be “not often” that it significantly affects people’s lives since millions of school children are being drugged on a daily basis due to it purportedly being not “small” and capable of affecting student’s lives in a negative and not insignificant manner if untreated. A sentence such as: My experience overcoming ADHD has defined the man that I have become…… Kind of makes more sense.
Good Luck!
