How can you improve your back swing?

you should start the backswing by swinging your arms back with no thought of your shoulders turning. Avoid trying to turn your shoulders at the start if you do you will chunk. let the shoulders move once your arms are past your right leg

By FutureLPGAgolfer

The answer above is one of the worst things you can do! You have to ONLY THINK OF YOU SHOULDERS TURNING BACK, LET YOUR ARMS GO BACK NATURALLY. You should never worry about your arms in a back swing because if you do then your going to shank it A LOT. If you want to learn more about the swing I'm talking about type in this question in wiki answers.

"What is the correct golf swing plane?"

This will tell you everything you need to know; the arms and hands jobs is to only hold on to the club but the BODY does EVERYTHING. Contact me if you have any questions about this.

Additional comment by golfrobot:

I totally agree 110% with FutureLPGAgolfer on this one. The 'grandfather of golf instruction', John Jacobs, to whom David Leadbetter, Butch Harmon and other modern day gurus pay great respect, summed up the essence of the golf swing as follows:

Backswing: Turn the shoulders, swing the arms, cock the wrists.

Down and through swing: Turn the hips, swing the arms down, uncock the wrists.

The above, done rhythmically, is the essence of the swing. No words sum up the swing better than those.


You want the arms and golf club to start their movement back before the shoulders start turning. The club head has a much longer distance to travel to the top of the back swing then do the shoulder's If you start turning the shoulders with the club, hands and arms you won't have anywhere for them to go once the shoulders have reached their max turn(without a lift to the top). Once the club, hands and arms reached your knee's (or so) then it's time for the shoulders to catch up and start turning to the top. And also, don't listen to anyone who hasn't broke 70 for 18 holes and go see a Golf Professional for real help.

Is level 5 USA gymnastics different then level 5 amerikids gymnastics?

AmeriKids Gymnastics is a different sanctioning body than USAG. The time commitment is lower, the pressure is lower. The routines however are MOSTLY the same as USAG with a few exceptions. Level 2 beam in AmeriKids does NOT have a fwd roll. The level 2 Vault (AmeriKids) is hands on the mat fall to back Not run jump hands on board) Level 4 you are ALLOWED to compete a kip. But level 5 is exactly the same. AmeriKids is WAY better than USAG IN MY OPINION because its a funner atmosphere it is cheaper and its a MUCH better way of letting EVERYONE compete (levels 2-basically 9) anyways check out AmeriKidsgymnastics.com for more info

Summer Olympic Games

Are the Olympic games truly global events?

Since the Athens games have more participating teams than the UN has members, it is a truly global event. To be sure, many small countries are only represented by one or two athletes with no realistic chance to win a medal, but their presence -- proudly announced in the Opening Ceremony, highly visible in the Olympic Village -- gives the games an unquestionably global color. This is hard to see on TV, which focuses almost exclusively on the events where Americans do well and downplays the rest.

The Winter Games are a much smaller affair -- fewer events, fewer participants -- given the fact that large parts of the world suffer from an acute lack of snow and ice. "Outsiders," like the famously inept British ski-jumper and the "cool-running" Jamaican bobsledders, are now largely excluded, for their own safety most of all and for the integrity of the sports. But the winter games are also a chance for small countries -- Sweden, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia, etc. -- a rare chance to earn the global spotlight.

How has war changed over the years?

War has changed. Its no longer about nations or idealoligies or ethnicity. Its an endless series of proxy battles fought by mercenaries and machines. War and its compsumtion of life has become a well oiled machine. war has changed. ID tagged soldiers carry ID tagged weapons, use ID tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. genetic control. information control.emotion control. Battlefield control. Everything is monitored and kept under control. War has changed. The age of deterrence has become the age of control. All in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction. And he who controls the battlefield... controls history. War has changed. when the battlefield is under total control... war becomes routine.

Different answer: War was routine when it was fought with rocks every season by the same tribes. Technology changes, levels and capacity change, but basic tactical, logistical, and strategic issues never change. The Iraqis face the same problems against US tanks and bulletproof armor that Germanic tribes faced against heavily armored and organized Roman legions. The actual issues of engineering change, but the difficulties, how to defeat an enemy you can't directly harm in a stand-up fight, how to utilize or adjust weapons incapable of dealing lethal blows against enemy armor in a single strike, how to organize a system of traps to disrupt the supply lines of a force you can't confront directly.

Another example would be international arms races, arms regulation, and cold wars. The first recorded cold war was between the Sumerians and the Elamites 6,000 years ago. They utilized proxy forces, shifting alliances, arms races, and political maneuvering in much the same way as the US and USSR until Sumeria annihlated Elam in one quick war after several hundred years. The pope banned the crossbow in the tenth century. He believed it killed people so brutally, so efficiently, that no society could survive incorporating it into a war, and it would mean the end of Christendom (and indeed the crossbow has killed many times more people than the nuclear bomb, which I compare it to in terms of it's initial tactical value). Crossbow units for years did not fight but simply marched onto or near battlefields to get the enemy to leave, or faced off with other crossbow units without violence.

What is the 'Starting Value' in gymnastics and why is it different for each gymnast?

This is they way in the Olympics

With the difficulty of your skill(vault) or the combination of all your skills(beam,floor,and bars) you come up with a start value on difficulting(such as a 6.6) then a 10.00 is added with a 'Starting Value' of 16.6 then to get your final score they deduct the points and then you get your end score.

AnswerEach element in a routine is categorized by difficulty, in sections A-E, with A being the simplest, and E being the most difficult. The starting value is the summation off all of these skills' Degree of Difficulty score. AnswerFor most compulsory gymnasts the starting value is 10.00. But the more elite the gymnast the more variations there will be within start values. Say there is a college gymnastics team and one girl is going to only do a front handspring on the vault (which is a very simple skill) and another girl is going to do a tsuk (a very difficult skill) it would not be fair for the judge to base both vaults off of a 10 because the front handspring should be absolutely perfect. So because the front handspring is an easier skill it has a lower start value. AnswerThe other answers are pretty good but what pretty much how a routine is scored.

There is there is an A and a B judge. The A judge adds up certain points (that are known to all gymnasts and coaches) for each skill that is completed sucessfully. The B judge score out of ten and deducts for any mistakes i.e. falls, wobbles, extra swings/steps, bent arms/legs, low landings, "closed shoulders, incorrect body positions etc.These to scored are then added together to give a final score for the gymnast. On vault a score is tabulated for each vault and then the average is found( at major competitions and the Olympics). On other occasion the higher score is taken.

What is the governing body in gymnastics?

Dishwashers are some of the easiest appliances to repair. Most people become intimidated by all of the control panels, dials, and push buttons that they end up calling a repairman because they do not believe that they can do it themselves. The control panels are the only things that have changed in a dishwasher in over twenty years. It is the control panel that will be the only intimidating aspect of repairing a dishwasher. Most malfunctions in a dishwasher can be fixed by the owners themselves. No need to spend extra money on a repair service. The biggest reasons why a dishwasher will stop working is because one of the parts has malfunctioned, and needs to be replaced. If a person is unsure that one of the parts of the dishwasher is unusable they should take that part to a professional to have it tested. If the part needs to be replaced, a person can either decide to replace it, or have it repaired.

The power for a dishwasher usually runs on either a 115 volt, or a 120 volt of power. The water comes from the water heater, and any waste water is drained into the drain pipe. For best results, a dishwasher should be run at a temperature of 140 degrees while in motion. Any colder than this, and the dishes will not come clean, but any hotter, and it could ruin the dishwashers mechanism. Newer dishwashers will have a preheating model that will preheat water automatically, so the temperature will not have to be set for the newer dishwashers. Before performing any repairs, the water from the plumbing system, and the electrical system must be turned off. This means that the water supply must be turned off in the main house, the unit must be unplugged, and the fuse for the circuit breaker must be turned off. This will prevent electrocution while working on the appliance.

The first step is to perform basic dishwasher checks to make sure the dishwasher is plugged in properly, check for blown fuses, or a tripped circuit. If those are not the problem, then test the switch with a voltage tester to make sure that the problem is not in the switching mechanism. The wall outlet is usually controlled by the switch. If this switch is not working, then it will need to be replaced. Check that the door to the dishwasher is latching when it closes. If it is not latching, then the latch will need to be cleaned, or replaced. Check the water heater to make sure it is working properly. If it is not the water heater, check the control panel and make sure all of the controls are working properly. Once all of these checks have been performed, then the person will have to look further into the cause of the dishwasher malfunction.

The sprayers, strainer, float switch, racks, and door latch all need to be checked to make sure they are not the problem. In order to get to any of the parts inside the dishwasher, it may have to be disassembled by removing the strainer, racks, and sprayers. The door to the dishwasher may also need to be removed in order to get to a part inside of the dishwasher. Other components that need to be checked are the door gasket, latch, switches, and the timer. The malfunction could be in any of these components, which will require only a minor fix. If water is leaking from the door that means it is the door gasket. Once the door gasket is fixed, and it is still leaking, check the door latch. If the latch is fine, then check the door switch. When the latch engages after it closes, it will engage the switch. If the dishwasher does not work after the latch is engaged, then the switch is faulty. The switch will have to be checked through a volt-ohm-milliammeter device which should be set to the RX1 scale. The VOM will need to be checked against each of the switches terminals. If they are all zero, then the switch is fine, if they are more than zero, then the switch is faulty and will need to be replaced.

If everything seems to be fine with the door latch, and switch, the floating switch will need to checked. The float switch is located at the bottom of the dishwasher unit. The bottom dish rack will need to be removed in order to get to the float switch. Make sure float switch is not stuck in place. If it is stuck, remove any debris that is around it. Remove the float switch with a screw driver, and the float switch will also need to be checked through a VOM device in the same manner as the switch was checked. If it reads zero, the float switch is fine, if it is more than zero, then the float switch is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Next step is checking the timer and the control switches. Most dishwasher malfunctions are caused due to a faulty timer. The timer is not a device that a person can fix on their own, so this will have to be taken to a professional to be repaired, or replaced. The timer can be checked with a VOM just like the switch and the floating switch. If it reads zero, it is okay, if it reads more than zero, it is faulty. The control switches can be checked in the same way with the VOM. If it reads more than zero, then the problem is in the control switch, and the control switch will need to be replaced. If a dishwasher does not fill up properly while washing dishes, or is not drying the dishes properly, then the dishwasher has a problem with a valve, or a heating element problem. If everything up to this point is fine with the dishwasher, the problem could be in the water inlet valve. The inlet valve controls the amount of water that flows into the dishwasher. The inlet valve is located at the tub of the dishwasher. Most problems with an inlet valve will be due to the screens being clogged. The valve will need to be cleaned. If the inlet valve looks damaged, it will need to be replaced.

Once all of these steps have been performed, and the dishwasher is still not working, the person will have to take it to a professional repair service because the problem is deeper than what most people can deal with.
