Has anyone else seen Jordan Petersons latest discussion? In which he presents argument about being suspended from Twitter for breaching their rules about hate speech.

I note that in Petersons twitter he has stated that the doctor whom removed the breasts of a celebrity as “criminal”, and Peterson claims to not understand why he has been suspended from twitter.

Since that doctor is identifiable publically, Peterson has indirectly damaged the reputation of the doctor.

Peterson claims that pride is a sin. Please be aware that there are defined flavours to pride.

“pride : 1. high or inordinate opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind or displayed in bearing, conduct etc.

3. becoming or dignified sense of what is due to oneself or one’s position or character; self-respect; self-esteem.

4. pleasure or satisfaction taken in something done by or belonging to oneself or conceived as reflecting credit upon oneself: civic pride.

6. the best or most admired part of anything.”

Macquarie dictionary, ios.

Pride in the sinful sense is number 1 above. Pride in the reasonable sense is number 3, simple dignity. Admiration as pride is number 6, which may or may not be considered sinful.

Examine Mr Petersons Youtube and decide for yourself if 1, 3, or 6 show what form of pride Peterson himself is revealing.

Is there anything actually criminal about a surgeon removing the breasts of a human?

“criminal : 1. of or relating to crime or its punishment. 2. the nature of or involving crime. 3. guilty of crime.

crime : 1. an act committed or an omission of duty, injurious to the public welfare, for which punishment is prescribed by law. 2. serious violation of human law. 3. any offence, especially one of grave character. 4. serious wrongdoing; sin. 5. colloquial a foolish or senseless act: it’s a crime to have to work so hard.” ibid.

Language is highly important. Communication is paramount.

They were that humans breasts, and the removal was done so by a trained surgeon with informed consent, as part of a transhuman surgery.

One notes that in some cultures it is forbidden to cut one’s own hair.

The powerful have often prescribed laws and rules about other people’s bodies and persecuted individuals whom did not follow those “laws” and “rules”.

Fundamentally our bodies are OURS.

Squash Fundamentals, by david jarvis 2022.

Featured

The racket sport of squash uses every muscle in the whole body, thus squash players should train every muscle in their whole body. ESPECIALLY the stability muscles. How many stability muscles are there?

Squash is a thinking persons game, thus train your mind as you train your body. Sports psychological training is highly useful, visit a psychologist regularly even if you’re not a nut case. Do you think psychological wellbeing doesn’t need a psychologist?

Read the rules of squash, at least once a year. What is rule 3.1?

Squash is typically played using only one hand, thus utilise offset weights training to redress that body imbalance that comes from playing squash. Which side of your body is your non preferred side?

Squash players run, walk, sprint, jog, lunge, dive, stretch, chasse, side step, cross step and leap. Thus train for those. Try dancing, aerobics, calisthenics and/or martial arts for your footwork cross training. Where is your closest martial artist instructor? Who will you dance with?

Squash players movement to the ball is acceleration and deceleration, thus train for those, and facilitate having a high power to weight ratio. What is the science of physics? Biomechanics?

Many squash matches last between 15 minutes and 50 minutes, rarely a match will go out to 120 minutes. Thus train for those normal durations and intensities using the principle of specificity. Which smartphone app will serve your timing needs competently?

Squash has a wide variation of hardness of hitting, from super soft delicate drop shots, to medium weight boasts and lobs, to extreme hard over hit drives. Apply a scale, perhaps 1 through 10 to fine tune your correct weight hitting. Is 1 through 10 finely graduated enough for your skill level?

Understand the tournament or pennant rules, they won’t be in the squash rulebook, but will still need to be abided by. Do the tournament rules change with each tournament?

Injuries are going to happen, but they are preventable. Get a good physiotherapist and regularly do their advised exercises. What is a niggle you can play through in competition? What is a niggle in training that says “STOP”?

Physical rest and recovery IS TRAINING. Psychological rest and recovery is necessary. Total rest is sleep, get plenty of quality sleep, much healing and adaption is done unconsciously. If your “rest” is active, be wary of over training; Is a light sweat total rest?

On court squash athletes are responsible for all our actions and inactions, off court the same – and yes build a team and commit to quality team culture within the team. How will your top sponsor respond to your on court emotional outburst whilst wearing their logo?

Some members of the team are… general practicioner, dietician, chef, physiotherapist, skills coach, psychologist, psychiatrist, lead coach, administrator, training partners, legal counsel, promoter, athletic team mates, fitness instructor and/or personal trainer, massager, … what other roles do you want on your team? Do you want a motivational mascot? A singer? A seamstress? A sponsor? A comedian?

competence fills ones cup, by david jarvis 2022

galaxy space
there was someone in my life long ago
and now they're not
like mucus from my nose
they expelled themselves quite a lot
spattered on the ground

after i found they'd been gone for so long
i rediscovered the joy of song
though quite poorly
telling my stories
yarning to no one in particular
using my own vernacular

words i took for my own
the seeds planted
the friendships granted
the lovers lost
the hopes withered
the starry nights of despair
of depths without any care

just tell the truth dad said
be average dad said
dont stand out in the crowd
others will aim to become proud
by tearing you down or building you up
aim for competence
to fill your cup.
