Hunger in the US

Jun 24, 2016 by

Hunger is ever present in the United States. More than 14% of US citizens, over 46 million people, struggle to put food on the table. This statistic includes 7 million elderly and disabled people, but half of all people facing hunger in the US are children. About one in five children live in food insecure homes and are at risk of hunger.   Poverty is the leading cause of hunger in America. Most people who are struggling to eat have to decide whether to spend their money on food or other necessities such as housing. The number of people living below the poverty line has gone up from 37.3 million in 2007 to 46.7 million in 2014. There are many causes for the rise in poverty: jobs are low paid and scarce, and increases...

USTA 35’s National Championships – Final thoughts...

Apr 24, 2016 by

Yesterday I finally got a couple of matches in!  For those that haven’t seen the box scores first match 2-6, 6-7, second match 5-7, 0-6.  Thank you very much for coming out to watch the matches Russ, Maddie, Mr. Howes, Rusty, Paul, John, and Paul!   It was a deceptively windy day which was great for keeping the “feels like” temperature comfortable.  Coming from playing almost exclusively indoor tennis one would think that playing in the wind would be a disadvantage.  Interestingly enough the wind was the great equalizer, playing outside again was a challenge for me.  The wind made it a challenge for everyone. In the second set of the first match I had a couple of opportunities to break at 4-4.  Just a slight hesitation and the opportunity vanished.  All in all...
