每日英語跟讀 Ep.K409: Once Again, Tennis Is Disrupted by Politics   If he had it to do over, Brad Gilbert would never have played a professional tennis tournament in South Africa while the country was embroiled in apartheid. 假如美國職業網球選手吉爾伯特能夠重來,他不會在南非還實施種族隔離制度時,參加那裡的職業網球錦標賽。 Martina Navratilova has never regretted challenging Czechoslovakia's Communist government by defecting to the United States in 1975, but she wishes she had been able to persuade her parents and younger sister to come with her. 捷克職業網球選手娜拉提洛娃,從不後悔在一九七五年藉由叛逃到美國,挑戰捷克斯洛伐克共產黨政府,不過她希望當年能說服雙親和妹妹跟著她來。 And Cliff Drysdale, the first president of the ATP, the men's pro players association, is still in awe of his fellow pros for agreeing to boycott Wimbledon in 1973 when Croatian player Nikola Pilic was suspended by his native Yugoslav Tennis Federation, which said he refused to play for Yugoslavia in the Davis Cup in New Zealand. 職業男網選手協會「職業網球聯合會」首任主席德萊斯代爾,仍然敬佩他的同輩職網球員同意在一九七三年抵制溫布頓網球錦標賽,當時克羅埃西亞選手皮里奇被他出身的南斯拉夫網球聯盟暫停溫網參賽資格,聯盟說,皮里奇拒絕代表南斯拉夫參加在紐西蘭舉行的台維斯盃。 Tennis and politics have long had a craggy relationship. This year alone, the sport has been embroiled in three international incidents: Novak Djokovic's deportation from Australia on the eve of the Australian Open because he did not have a COVID-19 vaccination, the Women's Tennis Association canceling all tournaments in China after accusations by Peng Shuai that she was sexually assaulted by a high-ranking government official, and Wimbledon banning Russian and Belarusian players because of the war in Ukraine. The WTA and the ATP subsequently stripped this year's Wimbledon of all ranking points. 網球與政治的關係一直崎嶇不平。單是今年,這項運動就捲入三個國際事件:塞爾維亞名將約克維奇因為沒接種新冠疫苗,在澳洲網球公開賽前夕被逐出澳洲;中國大陸女將彭帥指控一名政府高官性侵她後,國際女子網球協會取消在中國大陸所有錦標賽;以及溫網因烏克蘭戰爭禁止俄國和白俄羅斯選手參賽。國際女子網球協會和職業網球聯合會隨後取消今年溫網所有排名積分。 As this tournament begins, five male players ranked in the world's top 50, including No. 1 Daniil Medvedev and No. 8 Andrey Rublev, both Russians, will be absent because of the Wimbledon ban. Also banned are Russians Karen Khachanov, ranked No. 22, and Aslan Karatsev, No. 43; and Belarusian Ilya Ivashka, No. 40. 這場錦標賽開始之際,世界排名前50的選手中,五名男選手將因這道溫布頓禁令缺席,包括排名第一的梅德維夫和第八的羅布雷夫,都是俄國人。被禁的還有兩名俄國人,排名第22的卡查諾夫和第43的克拉特塞夫,以及排名第40的白俄人伊華舒卡。 For the women, 13 players who would have qualified are not allowed to play, including Russians Daria Kasatkina, ranked No. 13, No. 22 Veronika Kudermetova and No. 83 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, the 2021 French Open runner-up; and Belarusians Aryna Sabalenka, No. 6 and a semifinalist last year at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, and No. 20 Victoria Azarenka, a former world No. 1. 在女選手方面,13名符合資格者不准參賽,包括三名俄國人,排名第13的卡薩金娜、第22的庫德梅托娃和第83、2021年法國網球公開賽亞軍帕莉歐申可娃,以及兩名白俄人,排名第六、打入去年溫網和美國網球公開賽準決賽的莎芭蓮卡,還有前世界球后、目前第20的艾薩蘭卡。 The U.S. Tennis Association has already announced that players from Russia and Belarus will be allowed to compete at the U.S. Open in August, although not under their nations' flags. 美國網球協會已宣布,俄國和白俄選手將獲准參加8月美網公開賽,但不能代表他們自己的國家。 “Our sport is always going to be subjected to political forces,” said Drysdale, an ESPN commentator since the network's inception in 1979. “There's always something coming around the corner and rearing its head.” 從ESPN電視台1979年創立後就擔任其評論員的德萊斯代爾說:「我們的運動總會承受政治力,總有些事情很快就會冒出來。」Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/6447714

This episode we are doing a deep dive on the new singles womens grand slam champ Elena Rybakina! I was personally really surprised and taken by her super solid play in the finals and how she was able to mentally stay strong and come back from a 1 set down position to beat the favorite no#2 ranked player in the world Ons Jaber. Behind her powerful groundstrokes and even more powerful serve, Rybakina became the 57th different Slam winner in the Open Era, but the first representing Kazakhstan. Rybakina's previous Wimbledon best performance was reaching last year's fourth round. Her previous Grand Slam best was a quarterfinals appearance at the 2021 French Open.

At around 36 kilometres from the finish, on a section of straight road, the protesters sat on the course and set off red flares. The stage breakaway and peloton were both halted until the road was cleared.   Climate activists from the Derniere Renovation movement said: “Since the government doesn't care about the climate crisis, we need to come and take over the Tour de France to refocus attention on what matters for our survival. We need to make our government react as they lead us to the slaughterhouse.   “Non-violent disruption is our last chance to be heard and avoid the worst consequences of global warming,” the group said.   The Tour de France organisers, ASO, declined to comment on the protest. Commentating on the scene on an in-race motorbike, Sir Bradley Wiggins told Eurosport viewers: “It really was going off. It was quite crazy. A lot of people getting quite angry, some of the directeur sportifs got out the cars, stuck a boot in.”   The Derniere Renovation group was responsible for an interruption at the French Open tennis, when a protester jumped on to the court and tied herself to the net, wearing a T-shirt saying: “We have 1,028 days left”. In the Tour protest, they were seen wearing T-shirts stating: “We have 989 days left”.   The Tour has long been the target of protests but this took place against the backdrop of the race organisers pledging their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint. This year's “road book”, the manual given to all those working on the race, states that the Tour is “resolutely committed to being an increasingly eco-responsible organisation.”   In 2020, during the pandemic Tour, the race was criticised by recently elected “green” mayors in some of France's major cities. The mayor of Lyon, Gregory Doucet, described the Tour as “macho and polluting” and lacking an environmental conscience, and there have been multiple calls for the race to further reduce its carbon footprint.   The final outcome of the race itself was put into doubt when the race leader Tadej Pogacar's UAE Emirates team were hit by two Covid‑19 positive tests, just 48 hours after all riders in the peloton were tested and declared free of the virus.   George Bennett, one of the defending champion's key mountain support riders, and teammate Rafal Majka, both tested positive on Tuesday morning in Morzine. Bennett withdrew from the race while Majka was allowed to continue racing on the grounds that he was asymptomatic.   On Saturday another of Pogacar's team, Vegard Stake Laengen, also tested positive and withdrew. The eight-man team with which Pogacar started in Copenhagen is now reduced to six, with Majka's continuation uncertain.   “As per our internal protocols, Majka was tested for Covid-19 and returned a positive result this morning,” the UAE Emirates team said in a statement.   “He is asymptomatic and analysing his PCR, [we] found he had a very low risk of infectiousness, similar to the case of Bob Jungels [the AG2R Citroen rider who tested positive in Copenhagen] earlier in the race.” The Australian rider Luke Durbridge (Team BikeExchange) also tested positive and was withdrawn from the race.   ASO moved to restrict media access to the team buses, or the paddock, saying that “only representatives of the UCI (jury, commissaires, anti-doping), the teams' staff and the organisation's personnel supervising the teams will have access to the paddock”. Access to the finish lines, for the media, remains unchanged.   Magnus Cort Nielsen of the EF Education-EasyPost team won the stage in a photo finish from Nicholas Schultz, a teammate to the absent Durbridge. Lennard Kämna, of Bora Hansgrohe, one of the day's breakaways, moved to within 11 seconds of the race leader Pogacar but is expected to drop back in the next 48 hours, which includes summit finishes at Alpe d'Huez and the Col du Granon.   Van Aert gives Tour de France green jersey to fan who lent him a pump Stage 11 of the Tour de France was a big day for Jumbo-Visma, who claimed the race lead with Jonas Vingegaard, but the day was even bigger for one lucky spectator on the roadside of the Col du Granon.   Wout van Aert was coming back down the Col du Granon from the finish of stage 11 of the Tour de France after the podium ceremony for the points classification - which he leads by a huge margin - and had a slow leak in his tyre and no Jumbo-Visma mechanic in sight.   The Belgian stopped during the descent to his team bus and some cyclists quickly offered up a frame pump so Van Aert could add some air to his tubeless tyre.   In thanks, Van Aert gave one cyclist the green jersey off his back - literally telling him to unzip the back of the podium version of the green jersey and have it as a souvenir.   The moment was captured by Italian journalist and cyclist Michele Pelacci who is riding in the Alps with his brother and watching the Tour from the roadside. He works for a number of Italian media including the Alvento magazine and the official Giro d'Italia podcast called GIROglifici.   He admitted he wasn't quick enough to get Van Aert's green jersey but captured the moment and shared photographs on Twitter.   “My brother punctured and we stopped at the side of the road to change the inner tube. Guess who stopped after five minutes? Wout van Aert," Pelacci wrote on Twitter.   "I said: Hey Wout, there's liquid coming out of your wheel. He looked at me stupidly and explained it was tubeless. He asked for a pump and an English guy offered him one. Wout told him: ‘You're a hero' and said: ‘I've got something for you, take the green jersey off my back, it's yours'.   “What did I learn from it all? Be the first to pass a pump to Wout van Aert because in exchange he could give you a special souvenir.”   Pro cycling is unique in how close fans can get to the riders and spectators clamour for discarded bidons. But to receive such a valuable keepsake is hors-categorie.   'A brilliant day' Van der Poel and Van Aert attacking during stage 11 of the Tour de France   Van der Poel and Van Aert attacking during stage 11 of the Tour de France (Image credit: Getty Images) Van Aert was likely in a generous mood because of his team's success on the day.   He attacked from kilometre zero, drawing out a breakaway and, after snatching some more points in the intermediate sprint, came back to help the team in its assault on race leader Tadej Pogačar.   Van Aert pulled Primož Roglič back to the yellow jersey group after the Slovenian had put in several stinging attacks, coming up and past the group like a high-speed train.   On the final climb, Vingegaard hardly needed his teammates as he leapt away with 4.5km to go to win the stage and snatch the race lead.   "It was a really big day, we prepared for this day - you could see we were all ready to give it a go and attack the yellow jersey," Van Aert said after the podium ceremony.   "It was not easy, I was in front ready to help Jonas and Primož toward the Granon, but apparently Tadej Pogačar could chase down the guys all the time. So at that moment, I thought it was going to be hard to do something. But I think because Laporte and I at the beginning of the stage we made him suffer already early on. That's why Jonas could break away on the final climb."   Van Aert's breakaway started with a familiar friend - fellow cyclocross racer Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck) set aside their rivalry to help pull the breakaway clear only to be dropped on the first climb, the Lacets de Montvernier.   "The plan was to be in the breakaway and be the rider out front. That Mathieu was on my wheel was a nice surprise, it will be really cool pictures. We did a really fast first 30k, I really enjoyed it.   "Again I could take the points in the intermediate sprint, so a perfect day but especially for GC this was a brilliant day." For the fan who received his green jersey, it was undoubtedly an even more brilliant day.     What's New in the 303: Boulder Peak Sunday The Boulder Peak Triathlon was last Sunday.

Joe and I recap a Wimbledon that was more bereft of stars than any in recent memory on both the men's and women's sides. In men's Medvedev wasn't allowed to play because he's Russian, Zverev is still rehabbing from his awful French Open injury, and Nadal injured himself in the quarters. In women's Swiatek and Gauff exit early. All of which sets the stage for Djokovic and Rybikina to win. We also analyze a huge week in Auburn football recruiting that saw Auburn receive commitments from the No. 1 WR in the state in Phenix City's Karmello English (the last time AU signed the No. 1 WR in AL was over 10 yrs ago) and the No. 1 RB in the state in Montgomery Catholic's Jeremiah Cobb.

Happy Monday everyone, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Monday, July 11th, 2022. Before we get into what you may have missed over the weekend, this is just a reminder that our conference is just 4 months away! FLF Conference Plug: This year it’s happening in Knoxville TN, October 6-8! Don't miss beer & psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers which includes George Gilder, Jared Longshore, Pastor Wilson, Dr. Ben Merkle, Pastor Toby, and we can’t say yet…also dont miss our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and stuff for the kids too…like jumpy castles and accidental infant baptisms!

We can’t wait to fellowship, sing Psalms, and celebrate God’s goodness in Knoxville October 6-8. So, here’s what you may have missed over the weekend: https://www.foxbusiness.com/business-leaders/twitter-lawyers-sue-elon-musk-broken-deal-report Twitter lawyers up to sue Elon Musk over broken buyout deal: Twitter has retained the services of a heavyweight merger law firm to sue Tesla CEO Elon Musk for moving to drop his $44 billion takeover of the company, according to a report. The company has hired Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz LLP to represent it in a forthcoming suit, Bloomberg reported Sunday. Bloomberg cited sources who declined to be identified due to the private nature of the matter. A law firm representing the Tesla CEO sent a letter to Twitter on Friday, alleging that it appears "to have made false and misleading representations" when Musk agreed to buy the company on April 25 and has "breached" multiple provisions of the initial agreement. Musk's team has raised concerns with "spam bots" on the platform, and the Tesla CEO has threatened to walk away from the deal if the company fails to show that less than 5% of its daily active users are automated spam accounts. Musk has argued that Twitter significantly underestimated the number of these "spam bots" on its service. Last month, Twitter offered Musk access to its "firehose" of raw data on hundreds of millions of daily tweets, according to multiple reports at the time, though neither the company nor Musk confirmed this. Twitter said it removes 1 million spam accounts each day in a call with executives Thursday during a briefing that aimed to shed more light on the company's fake and bot accounts. Twitter said on the call that the spam accounts represent well below 5% of its active user base each quarter. Private data, which isn't available publicly and thus not in the data "firehose" that was given to Musk, includes IP addresses, phone numbers and location. Twitter said such private data helps avoid misidentifying real accounts as spam. Neither SpaceX nor Tesla nor Twitter immediately responded to FOX Business' request for comment Sunday. A receptionist for Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz declined to confirm or deny the report. More from our booming economy: https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/us-postal-service-rate-increases-takes-effect-sunday US Postal Service rate increases takes effect Sunday The next time you mail through the United States Postal Service (USPS), it's going to cost you extra. The USPS' rate hike, upping First-Class Mail prices by 6.5%, took effect Sunday, according to the agency. When the USPS made its announcement in April it noted that the 6.5% increase would still be below inflation, which is sitting at a rate of 8.6%. However, this likely won't be the last increase from the USPS. In May, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said Americans should get used to "uncomfortable" postage rate increases in coming years as the U.S. Postal Service seeks to become self-sufficient. The Postal Service Board of Governors sets postage rates, but DeJoy said he’ll advocate for raising prices until "we have accomplished our objective of projecting a trajectory that shows us being self-sustaining." That objective is laid out in the USPS' 10-year plan, Delivering for America. As part of this plan, the USPS is working to break even by the fiscal year 2023 and avoid $160 billion in projected losses over the next 10 years. The price adjustments taking effect Sunday "will help with the implementation of the Delivering for America plan, including a $40 billion investment in core Postal Service infrastructure over the next ten years," according to the USPS. https://www.breitbart.com/environment/2022/07/11/world-economic-forum-says-democracy-is-dying-ditch-fossil-fuels-and-save-it/ World Economic Forum: Gas Prices Must Go Even Higher — to Save Democracy The World Economic Forum (WEF) released a position paper Monday that inexorably links two claimed global crises as one – “climate change” and the “decline of democracy.” The WEF paper argues for the past 15 years, democracy has been in decline worldwide. To protect and promote freedom, “leading democracies must strengthen their economies and safeguard liberty.” It goes on to say ignoring progress toward a “low-carbon economy could put democracies in greater economic peril, not less” while repeating the broader demand of environmental activists for companies to stop investing fossil fuels. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has brought renewed focus on this economic weakness, the WEF says. What is the answer for the U.S. and Europe? Pricing the alternatives to green energy out of the market. It says: First, leading democracies should agree to end the underpricing of fossil fuels, which is the principal factor preventing a clean energy transition. The underpricing associated with producing and burning coal, oil and gas amounted to $5.9 trillion in economic costs in 2020. Nearly a quarter of these losses – $1.45 trillion – occurred in 48 major and smaller democracies. The leading democracies of the G20 should collectively commit to phasing out cost and tax breaks for the production and consumption of fossil fuels. They should also phase in more efficient pricing of fossil fuels through taxes or tradable permits to cover the costs of local air pollution, global warming, and other economic damages. The paper goes on to argue that compliance can and must be enforced. Taxes can be imposed on carbon-intensive imports to reduce the risk of unfair competition for their domestic industries “and to deter companies from relocating overseas to avoid compliance at home.” Doesn’t that just scream democracy? Forcing other economies to reform their under-pricing of fossil fuels to avoid the penalties imposed by the policy should also be actively pursued, according to the WEF, with U.S. President Joe Biden already committed to punishing the fossil fuel industry out of existence. The paper concludes that by delaying a clean energy transition, “leading democracies are making their economies more vulnerable through continued reliance on fossil fuels.” Collectively acting to foster a green transition “is not only good for the climate but also critical for protecting democracy,” ……… that’s the conclusion of the paper… Gold River Trading Co.

That means the league will not mandate that players wear masks, participate in contact tracing, wear bracelets, or otherwise partake in any of the standard Covid protocols the league has had in place since 2020. The NFL did, however, leave open the possibility of reinstating Covid protocols should the need arise. “Should there be a reason to reimpose aspects of the protocols or to take other measures, we will work closely with clubs, the NFLPA and our respective experts, and local, state and federal public health officials to continue to safeguard the health of the NFL community,” the memo to all teams stated. While the league will not place players or coaches under any restrictions, all employees of the 32 league franchises are expected to conform to whatever coronavirus safeguards local authorities have put in place. The NFL and NFLPA agreed to end the league’s coronavirus testing regimen in March.

Bloomberg cited sources who declined to be identified due to the private nature of the matter. A law firm representing the Tesla CEO sent a letter to Twitter on Friday, alleging that it appears "to have made false and misleading representations" when Musk agreed to buy the company on April 25 and has "breached" multiple provisions of the initial agreement. Musk's team has raised concerns with "spam bots" on the platform, and the Tesla CEO has threatened to walk away from the deal if the company fails to show that less than 5% of its daily active users are automated spam accounts. Musk has argued that Twitter significantly underestimated the number of these "spam bots" on its service. Last month, Twitter offered Musk access to its "firehose" of raw data on hundreds of millions of daily tweets, according to multiple reports at the time, though neither the company nor Musk confirmed this. Twitter said it removes 1 million spam accounts each day in a call with executives Thursday during a briefing that aimed to shed more light on the company's fake and bot accounts. Twitter said on the call that the spam accounts represent well below 5% of its active user base each quarter. Private data, which isn't available publicly and thus not in the data "firehose" that was given to Musk, includes IP addresses, phone numbers and location. Twitter said such private data helps avoid misidentifying real accounts as spam. Neither SpaceX nor Tesla nor Twitter immediately responded to FOX Business' request for comment Sunday. A receptionist for Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz declined to confirm or deny the report. More from our booming economy: https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/us-postal-service-rate-increases-takes-effect-sunday US Postal Service rate increases takes effect Sunday The next time you mail through the United States Postal Service (USPS), it's going to cost you extra. The USPS' rate hike, upping First-Class Mail prices by 6.5%, took effect Sunday, according to the agency. When the USPS made its announcement in April it noted that the 6.5% increase would still be below inflation, which is sitting at a rate of 8.6%. However, this likely won't be the last increase from the USPS. In May, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said Americans should get used to "uncomfortable" postage rate increases in coming years as the U.S. Postal Service seeks to become self-sufficient. The Postal Service Board of Governors sets postage rates, but DeJoy said he’ll advocate for raising prices until "we have accomplished our objective of projecting a trajectory that shows us being self-sustaining." That objective is laid out in the USPS' 10-year plan, Delivering for America. As part of this plan, the USPS is working to break even by the fiscal year 2023 and avoid $160 billion in projected losses over the next 10 years. The price adjustments taking effect Sunday "will help with the implementation of the Delivering for America plan, including a $40 billion investment in core Postal Service infrastructure over the next ten years," according to the USPS. https://www.breitbart.com/environment/2022/07/11/world-economic-forum-says-democracy-is-dying-ditch-fossil-fuels-and-save-it/ World Economic Forum: Gas Prices Must Go Even Higher — to Save Democracy The World Economic Forum (WEF) released a position paper Monday that inexorably links two claimed global crises as one – “climate change” and the “decline of democracy.” The WEF paper argues for the past 15 years, democracy has been in decline worldwide. To protect and promote freedom, “leading democracies must strengthen their economies and safeguard liberty.” It goes on to say ignoring progress toward a “low-carbon economy could put democracies in greater economic peril, not less” while repeating the broader demand of environmental activists for companies to stop investing fossil fuels. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has brought renewed focus on this economic weakness, the WEF says. What is the answer for the U.S. and Europe? Pricing the alternatives to green energy out of the market. It says: First, leading democracies should agree to end the underpricing of fossil fuels, which is the principal factor preventing a clean energy transition. The underpricing associated with producing and burning coal, oil and gas amounted to $5.9 trillion in economic costs in 2020. Nearly a quarter of these losses – $1.45 trillion – occurred in 48 major and smaller democracies. The leading democracies of the G20 should collectively commit to phasing out cost and tax breaks for the production and consumption of fossil fuels. They should also phase in more efficient pricing of fossil fuels through taxes or tradable permits to cover the costs of local air pollution, global warming, and other economic damages. The paper goes on to argue that compliance can and must be enforced. Taxes can be imposed on carbon-intensive imports to reduce the risk of unfair competition for their domestic industries “and to deter companies from relocating overseas to avoid compliance at home.” Doesn’t that just scream democracy? Forcing other economies to reform their under-pricing of fossil fuels to avoid the penalties imposed by the policy should also be actively pursued, according to the WEF, with U.S. President Joe Biden already committed to punishing the fossil fuel industry out of existence. The paper concludes that by delaying a clean energy transition, “leading democracies are making their economies more vulnerable through continued reliance on fossil fuels.” Collectively acting to foster a green transition “is not only good for the climate but also critical for protecting democracy,” ……… that’s the conclusion of the paper… Gold River Trading Co.

That means the league will not mandate that players wear masks, participate in contact tracing, wear bracelets, or otherwise partake in any of the standard Covid protocols the league has had in place since 2020. The NFL did, however, leave open the possibility of reinstating Covid protocols should the need arise. “Should there be a reason to reimpose aspects of the protocols or to take other measures, we will work closely with clubs, the NFLPA and our respective experts, and local, state and federal public health officials to continue to safeguard the health of the NFL community,” the memo to all teams stated. While the league will not place players or coaches under any restrictions, all employees of the 32 league franchises are expected to conform to whatever coronavirus safeguards local authorities have put in place. The NFL and NFLPA agreed to end the league’s coronavirus testing regimen in March. And finally, Novak Djokovic, won at Wimbledon for the seventh time: Djokovic beats Kyrgios to win 4th consecutive Wimbledon title

This week, Lisa chats with Erik Kortland, former college and professional player and current coach and business person, about his latest venture, RKT Group, Inc. After his playing career, Erik started at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles as Head of Elite Player and Academy Development, where he was responsible for developing a Top-10 national player in every age group of boys and girls. After much success as a private coach, Erik was hired in 2013 by USTA Player Development as National Coach, Junior Development. His primary responsibility was to implement USTA PD philosophy at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, site of the annual US Open Tennis Championships, directly developing USA's very best prospects and creating programming for all juniors.   In 2016 Erik coached Amanda Anisimova (pictured with Erik) to her first junior French Open final and first WTA grand slam win at the US Open. In 2017 he coached Whitney Osuigwe and Claire Liu to the finals of the Junior French open and Claire Liu and Ann Li to the finals of Junior Wimbledon.  In 2017 and 2018 USA recaptured the Junior Fed Cup title twice in Budapest, Hungary with 2017 team of Amanda Anisimova, Whitney Osuigwe, Caty McNally and 2018 team Coco Gauff, Alexa Noel, and Connie Ma. In 2018, Erik was promoted to Lead National coach for men's and women's tennis and was in charge of all women's and junior boys programming at Training Center West in Carson, CA. In 2021 Erik resigned from USTA and joined the Tecnifibre/Lacoste Performance Team as part of their sports marketing and player development department. With all Erik's tennis expertise and business industry experience it was a natural fit to team up with Ryan Redondo and Khuong Tien to form RKT Group, Inc.

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K394: 地主冠軍荒讓法國選手在紅土失存在感

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K394: Of Red Clay and French Existentialism   The most prominent feature of the French Open is that this Grand Slam tournament takes place on the rusty red clay of Roland Garros, a beloved detail that is as much a part of local culture and tradition as the bouquinistes that sell art and used books along the Seine. 法國網球公開賽最突出的特點,就是這項大滿貫賽事在羅蘭蓋洛球場鏽紅色的紅土上舉行。如同塞納河畔販賣藝術品與二手書的舊書攤一樣,這是一個令人喜愛的細節,也是當地文化與傳統的一部分。 And yet, as it so often is in the country that claims Albert Camus and Simone de Beauvoir, the relationship between France and its “terre bateau” is a little more complicated. 然而,就像這個擁有卡繆和西蒙波娃的國家過去經常發生的那樣,法國與自家「紅土球場」之間的關係有點複雜。 This red clay that comes from a small brick factory in Oise, north of Paris, elicits so much love. 來自巴黎北方瓦茲一家小型磚廠的這種紅土深受眾人喜愛。 But the clay has also become a symbol of deep frustration. A Frenchwoman has not won the singles championship that this country so treasures, the one that requires more grit but also more thought than any other, since Mary Pierce in 2000. A Frenchman has not won it in 39 years, since Yannick Noah in 1983. 但這種紅土也成為深刻挫折的象徵。自2000年的瑪麗.皮爾絲以來,還沒有一位法國女子贏得這個國家如此珍視的單打冠軍,這個冠軍需要更多的意志力,也需要更多思考。自1983年的諾亞之後,法國男人已有39年未獲男單冠軍。 Why? 為什麼? The answer likely has a lot to do with a central contradiction in the home of red clay's biggest stage. Just 11.5% of the tennis courts in France are made of the traditional red clay and most of those are in private clubs. Another 16.5% of courts are made of an imitation clay surface that is similar to the terre bateau but plays harder and faster than the softer traditional clay. 答案跟這個紅土賽事最高舞台主場的重要矛盾可能有很大關係。法國只有11.5%網球場使用傳統紅土,且大多數都是私人俱樂部的網球場,另有16.5%的球場表面由仿紅土製成,雖跟紅土球場類似,但比較軟的傳統紅土打起來更硬且更快。 Winning on clay requires a Ph.D. in what coaches and players call point construction, which is shorthand for playing tennis like chess, thinking not only about this next shot but three shots down the line. Learning that to the point where it is instinctual can take years, and like most things, the earlier one starts training the brain to think that way, the better. 想在紅土賽場上取勝,必須精通教練和球員所稱點的建構,這是像下棋一樣打網球的簡單表達,不僅是想著下一次擊球,還要考慮接下來的三次擊球。將此學習到如同直覺恐需數年時間,而且就像大多數事情一樣,越早開始訓練大腦以這種方式思考越好。 “On clay, the fight really goes on and on,” said Aurelio Di Zazzo, a coach at the Tennis Club of Paris. “The longer the effort, the more you have to use your mind.” 巴黎網球俱樂部教練迪扎佐這麼說:「在紅土球場,比賽真的是沒完沒了。努力的時間愈久,就愈需要動腦筋。」 The club, which is less than 1 mile from Roland Garros, tries to carry red clay's torch as best it can. That torch is not cheap. Maintaining the courts requires four full-time employees, and new clay costs more than $2,000 a year for each court. Each court must be entirely dug up and redone every 15 years, costing more than $30,000 per court. 這家距離羅蘭蓋洛球場不到一英里的俱樂部,盡其所能地傳承著紅土比賽的火炬。這個火炬可不便宜。維護球場需要四名全職員工,每個球場每年鋪新紅土的費用超過2,000美元。每隔15年,每個球場都必須徹底挖掉重鋪一次,每個球場花費超過30,000美元。 Levy said it is worth it. 勒維表示,這是值得的。 “This clay is a part of France,” he said. 他說:「紅土球場是法國的一部分。」Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/6379673

Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more.

Sign up now at flfnetwork.com https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-new-york-supreme-court-strikes-down-law-that-allowed-non-citizens-to-vote?utm_campaign=64487 New York Supreme Court strikes down law that allowed non-citizens to vote New York City's City Council approved a measure in January to give non-citizens the right to vote in local elections. But after a suit was brought by the GOP lawmakers, the New York Supreme Court ruled that no, non-citizens do not have the right to vote. The plan would have added some 800,000 New Yorkers to the voting rolls, and would have allowed them to vote for mayor, public advocate, city council, borough presidents, and school boards. Justice Ralph Porzio said that the law was in direct violation of the New York State Constitution. "The New York State Constitution expressly states that citizens meeting the age and residency requirements are entitled to register and vote in elections," he said. "Though voting is a right so many citizens take for granted, the City of New York cannot 'obviate' the restrictions imposed by the Constitution," Porzio continued, going on to say that "the weight of the citizens’ vote will be diluted by municipal voters and candidates and political parties alike will need to reconfigure their campaigns." The bill allowed non-citizens to register in political parties and vote in local elections if they hold green cards or have working visas. The only additional requirement for non-citizens is that they have been residents of New York City for a mere 30 days. In striking down the law, Porzio said that "Though Plaintiffs have not suffered harm today, the harm they will suffer is imminent." The bill was slated to go into effect for the 2023 election year. Outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio was not in favor of the measure, but agreed to sign the law anyway. Current Mayor Eric Adams was on board with the bill, saying that while the bill might not be legal, green card holders should get the vote. The idea was that because they were impacted by local leaders, and were being taxed, they should also vote, despite that being a right only for US citizens. The bill was touted by immigrant activists as necessary, because those immigrant non-citizens pay taxes and should therefore be permitted to vote. Staten Island City Councilman Joe Borelli said of the ruling that: "Today's decision validates those of us who can read the plain English words of our state constitution and state statutes: Noncitizen voting in New York is illegal, and shame on those who thought they could skirt the law for political gain. Opposition to this measure was bipartisan and cut across countless neighborhood and ethnic lines, yet progressives chose to ignore both our constitution and public sentiment in order to suit their aims. I commend the court in recognizing reality and reminding New York's professional protestor class that the rule of law matters." https://www.dailywire.com/news/disney-offering-johnny-depp-301-million-to-return-to-movie-franchise-report?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=dwbrand Disney Offering Johnny Depp $301 Million To Return To Movie Franchise: Report Hollywood actor Johnny Depp is reportedly set to return to Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise after the entertainment giant offered Depp a whopping $301 million to return the role. Depp was let go from the franchise in 2018 after starring in five movies, making the film’s box office successes and some of the most profitable movies of all time. A jury recently found that Amber Heard defamed Depp in an op-ed about domestic violence, published by The Washington Post in 2018. It was alleged that Depp was let go from “Pirates of the Caribbean” in part because of the claims made in that op-ed. An insider told the Australian outlet Poptopic that Disney is “very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp. They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another ‘Pirates’ film or two.” “I know corporate sent him a gift basket with a very heartfelt letter, but I’m unsure how it was received,” the source alleged. “But what I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow — so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.” According to Poptopic’s insider, the company is “prepping a deal for USD$301 million deal that will include a sizable donation to a charity of Depp’s choice. The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off Disney Plus series about the early life of the Captain of The Black Pearl.” Following his legal victory, Depp said in a statement, “Six years later, the jury gave me my life back … I am truly humbled.” Personally, as much as I love Johnny’s portrayal of Captain Jack, I think it’s time for he and the franchise to end… the movies just weren’t as good, but as we all know Disney, I’m sure they’ll want to keep their cash cow afloat.

"The gas station owner is the least responsible for high prices. The cost of theft gets passed on in higher prices, and when people are driving around with unsecured stolen fuel, it is a concern to anybody."Air Force veteran co-founder of NGT Academy, a network engineering and cybersecurity training academy, Terry Kim said: "It's really sad because who's really losing out in these types of situations is the gas station owner.""You can literally put them completely out of business [into] bankruptcy by doing this kind of stuff. Even though stealing oil might be helping people or getting free gas, this is really a bad thing for these gas station owners," he said.In Virginia Beach, Virginia earlier this month, police observed "numerous vehicles" using devices to pump gas from a Citgo station that was closed at the time. "Individuals were then selling the gasoline at a discounted rate through a phone application and had advertised the operation on social media. It was determined that thousands of dollars worth of gasoline was stolen from the business over several days," the Virginia Beach Police Department said in a June 14 press release. As Fox News reproted: To protect themselves from cyberattacks, fuel retailers should make sure their networks are up-to-date and properly secured so that their technology infrastructure has no vulnerabilities, or weaknesses allowing hackers to infiltrate their networks and steal or change information. Stores and franchises should also train their employees, Kim and NGT Academy co-founder Jacob Hess said.More thieves are stealing gas in the United States, with 25% of fuel retailers reporting an increase in gas thefts.Physical gas thefts not involving cyberattacks are another issue. Now it’s time for the topic that I love… sports! https://nypost.com/2022/06/26/novak-djokovic-wont-get-covid-vaccine-to-play-us-open/ Novak Djokovic won’t change mind on COVID vaccine to play US Open Novak Djokovic knows that, as things stand now, Wimbledon will be his last Grand Slam tournament of 2022, because he will not be able to play in the U.S. Open — he has not received any COVID-19 shots and can’t enter the United States as an unvaccinated foreigner. “That,” the 35-year-old from Serbia said Saturday at the All England Club, “is an extra motivation to do well here.” Djokovic began this season tied with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at 20 major championships, then the record for a man. But Djokovic’s decision not to get vaccinated led to his deportation from Australia before the Australian Open in January — and Nadal wound up winning that tournament to get his 21st. Nadal then beat Djokovic in the quarterfinals at the French Open en route to earning his 22nd Slam title this month. When Wimbledon starts on Monday, Djokovic will have the honor of opening play at Centre Court as the defending champion. He is seeded No. 1 and will be bidding for a fourth consecutive title at the All England Club and seventh overall. “Hopefully I can have a very good tournament, as I have done in the last three editions. Then I’ll just have to wait and see. I would love to go to States. But as of today, that’s not possible,” said Djokovic, who has come down with COVID-19 twice. “There is not much I can do anymore. I mean, it’s really up to the U.S. government to make a decision whether or not they allow unvaccinated people to go into the country.” A reporter noted that Djokovic does still have time to get vaccinated before play begins at Flushing Meadows on Aug. 29, and then asked him whether “you’ve completely closed your mind to that as an option.” Djokovic replied with one word: “Yes.” This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief… If you liked the show, go ahead and hit that share button.

Depp was let go from the franchise in 2018 after starring in five movies, making the film’s box office successes and some of the most profitable movies of all time. A jury recently found that Amber Heard defamed Depp in an op-ed about domestic violence, published by The Washington Post in 2018. It was alleged that Depp was let go from “Pirates of the Caribbean” in part because of the claims made in that op-ed. An insider told the Australian outlet Poptopic that Disney is “very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp. They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another ‘Pirates’ film or two.” “I know corporate sent him a gift basket with a very heartfelt letter, but I’m unsure how it was received,” the source alleged. “But what I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow — so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.” According to Poptopic’s insider, the company is “prepping a deal for USD$301 million deal that will include a sizable donation to a charity of Depp’s choice. The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off Disney Plus series about the early life of the Captain of The Black Pearl.” Following his legal victory, Depp said in a statement, “Six years later, the jury gave me my life back … I am truly humbled.” Personally, as much as I love Johnny’s portrayal of Captain Jack, I think it’s time for he and the franchise to end… the movies just weren’t as good, but as we all know Disney, I’m sure they’ll want to keep their cash cow afloat.

"The gas station owner is the least responsible for high prices. The cost of theft gets passed on in higher prices, and when people are driving around with unsecured stolen fuel, it is a concern to anybody."Air Force veteran co-founder of NGT Academy, a network engineering and cybersecurity training academy, Terry Kim said: "It's really sad because who's really losing out in these types of situations is the gas station owner.""You can literally put them completely out of business [into] bankruptcy by doing this kind of stuff. Even though stealing oil might be helping people or getting free gas, this is really a bad thing for these gas station owners," he said.In Virginia Beach, Virginia earlier this month, police observed "numerous vehicles" using devices to pump gas from a Citgo station that was closed at the time. "Individuals were then selling the gasoline at a discounted rate through a phone application and had advertised the operation on social media. It was determined that thousands of dollars worth of gasoline was stolen from the business over several days," the Virginia Beach Police Department said in a June 14 press release. As Fox News reproted: To protect themselves from cyberattacks, fuel retailers should make sure their networks are up-to-date and properly secured so that their technology infrastructure has no vulnerabilities, or weaknesses allowing hackers to infiltrate their networks and steal or change information. Stores and franchises should also train their employees, Kim and NGT Academy co-founder Jacob Hess said.More thieves are stealing gas in the United States, with 25% of fuel retailers reporting an increase in gas thefts.Physical gas thefts not involving cyberattacks are another issue. Now it’s time for the topic that I love… sports! https://nypost.com/2022/06/26/novak-djokovic-wont-get-covid-vaccine-to-play-us-open/ Novak Djokovic won’t change mind on COVID vaccine to play US Open Novak Djokovic knows that, as things stand now, Wimbledon will be his last Grand Slam tournament of 2022, because he will not be able to play in the U.S. Open — he has not received any COVID-19 shots and can’t enter the United States as an unvaccinated foreigner. “That,” the 35-year-old from Serbia said Saturday at the All England Club, “is an extra motivation to do well here.” Djokovic began this season tied with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at 20 major championships, then the record for a man. But Djokovic’s decision not to get vaccinated led to his deportation from Australia before the Australian Open in January — and Nadal wound up winning that tournament to get his 21st. Nadal then beat Djokovic in the quarterfinals at the French Open en route to earning his 22nd Slam title this month. When Wimbledon starts on Monday, Djokovic will have the honor of opening play at Centre Court as the defending champion. He is seeded No. 1 and will be bidding for a fourth consecutive title at the All England Club and seventh overall. “Hopefully I can have a very good tournament, as I have done in the last three editions. Then I’ll just have to wait and see. I would love to go to States. But as of today, that’s not possible,” said Djokovic, who has come down with COVID-19 twice. “There is not much I can do anymore. I mean, it’s really up to the U.S. government to make a decision whether or not they allow unvaccinated people to go into the country.” A reporter noted that Djokovic does still have time to get vaccinated before play begins at Flushing Meadows on Aug. 29, and then asked him whether “you’ve completely closed your mind to that as an option.” Djokovic replied with one word: “Yes.” This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief… If you liked the show, go ahead and hit that share button.

She reviews her weekend in Denver filming her upcoming Amazon Original Special at the Paramount Theatre, which is one of her favorite places to do shows. She talks about eating breakfast at Sam's No3 and hanging out with her good friend and surprise opening act, the iconic George Wallace. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Boulder Canyon Classic Sea Salt kettle chips, which she thinks have a terrific crunch. She then samples Dale's Wild West Elk Jerky, and she loves the salty taste. She finishes her tasting with Old El Paso Zesty Ranch Sauce, which she doesn't think tastes anything like Ranch but offers that it might be ok on tacos. QUEEN'S COURT: It has been a quiet week for the Court, but Kathleen shares that her friend Kathe saw Tanya Tucker in North Carolina last weekend and thinks that Queen Tanya's live show is better than ever.UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on the opening of ABBA's Voyage avatar concert series in London, another Russian oligarch's super yacht is seized in a UAE creek, Anna Delvey defrauds another “friend,” Elon Musk has issued a back-to-the-office ordinance and “the children” revolt, and the world's oldest man celebrates his 113th birthday in Venezuela. “HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND IT”: Kathleen is amazed to read about the discovery in Alabama of the largest prehistoric cave drawings ever found in North America, and a 2,100 year old farmstead found “frozen in time in Israel. RUSSIAN SUPERYACHTS VANISHING FROM GLOBAL TRACKING: In maintaining her obsession regarding crushing the power of Russian oligarchs, Kathleen reads an article stating that superyachts linked to sanctioned Russian oligarchs are vanishing from global tracking systems in an attempt to avoid sanctions, according to an investigation by The Observer. PROTESTERS GONE WILD: Kathleen continues with her reporting on crazy protesters, reading about 2 recent protest actions: a French Open tennis protester ties herself to the Center Court net during the men's semifinal, and the Mona Lisa was smeared with cake in an apparent climate protest. MAN DRESSES AS COLLIE TO BECOME A DOG: Kathleen is baffled reading an article about a Japanese man who spent more than $15,000 to fulfill his dream of transforming into a four-legged animal. The man, known only by his Twitter username, Toco, spent 2 million Japanese yen, or about $15,700, to create a lifelike rough-collie costume that he could inhabit.POST OFFICE VACANCY IN ANTARCTICA: Kathleen thinks she knows a few Termites who would jump at the chance to take a job running the world's most remote post office in Antarctica. The post is at Port Leroy, and responsibilities include counting penguins and running the gift shop. MCDONALD'S AND STARBUCKS LEAVE RUSSIA: Kathleen reads announcements that McDonald's is leaving Russia, with the stores being sold and will continue to operate under a new proposed brand name called “Fun and Tasty.” She also reads that Starbucks is leaving the Russian market, following McDonald's move. GALLERY OWNER CHARGED WITH COUNTERFEIT ART SALES: Kathleen loves the fine art world, and is enthralled with an article about a Florida gallery owner who has been charged with selling fake Banksy, Warhol, and Basquiat paintings to rich Palm Beach buyers.
