Daly City, CA

PhirSe- New Beginning

Phirse is a global Support group for Divorced, Separated after marriage and Widowed.


To join this group you must be:

1. Divorced/Separated/Widowed? 

2. Willing to to connect with others with similar life experiences to socialize and make friends.

3.NOT a dating group.

 


You can join from anywhere in USA, Canada, Australia or EU.


FYI, 90% of the members are of South Asian origin.

 Let's get together for a better life post-divorce, separation, or loss of a spouse. We know how hard life can be during and after such life changing experience for us and our kids. We know it’s not easy to feel this pain and grief for those who didn't travel this path and not even our close family/friends. We will organize events that will help us support each other. If you have kids, we know how important it must be for you to support them. If you do not have kids, you are probably lonely and can find friends here. It's a new beginning to a beautiful life. 

  We host dinners, movies, hiking, clubbing, dancing, singing, picnics, kids, and cultural events. If you would like to see any events of your interest, please share your ideas with the organizers. You are also welcome to host any events you like. We encourage and appreciate the initiative to keep the group engaged and energized. 

Vision:

Make life better for all members by supporting each other with care and respect.


Why Guideline: 

We pride ourselves in the diversity of our amazing membership. Currently, our group has members from multiple country of origins, races, ethnicity and color. We want to continue to be known for our inclusiveness. To maintain a supportive environment for all members, we abide by certain guidelines, both in our face to face (in-person and virtual) interactions and in our online messages. 


PhirSe Meetup Guidelines:

1.  Respect and care for each other

2.  This is a support group, NOT a dating group.

3.  Maintain a fun environment.

4.  If you want to host an event, please let an admin know and we can make you an event organizer in Meetup. So that members have an opportunity to attend multiple events, please avoid any scheduling conflicts between events 🙏

5.  Note that during this time of ‘Shelter in Place’, we may schedule simultaneous virtual events in order to accommodate the timing preferences for as many members as possible. 

6.  As we have only one group zoom account, if there are two events scheduled at the same time, please feel free to use your personal virtual account.


PhirSe Chat Guidelines:

1.  Please avoid religious and political discussions and posts (even if they are just jokes) in the group messages. As mentioned, we have members from very diverse backgrounds and we do not want to inadvertently offend anyone on these topics. 

2.  Please avoid sending private messages to any member before meeting them in events. If a member requests that you stop personal messaging, please respect their wishes. 

3.  If you feel strongly about any post, please send a personal message to the group admin or directly to the person who sent the post, instead of responding to the group, where all members can view an exchange of conflict. Admins will try to manage resolutions offline and we ask that you do the same.

4.  Please do not post anything with explicit content (profanity, sex, violence) in any of the groups.

Mensa / San Francisco Region

San Francisco, CA

Mensa / San Francisco Region

This MeetUp provides a dynamic way for members of San Francisco Regional Mensa to get the latest on Mensa events in the Bay Area and to more easily host their own Mensa events. The idea is that by eliminating the very long lead time now necessary to post things to the Intelligencer, we will have more, and more varied, events on the calendar.

You MUST be a *current* member of Mensa to join this group. When you click "Join Us" (above right), please include your full name AND your Mensa membership number so that we can verify your membership.

If you'd like to become a member of Mensa, please go to the SFRM website, http://www.sfmensa.org/, to find out how to qualify, or to locate a testing session near you. In the meantime, you can join us in our San Francisco Mensa Friends Meetup where we have events open to non-members.

Organizers and Event Organizers can post events directly to our Meetup site, but Meetup no longer allows non-organizers to post events directly.

If you are a member of our Meetup group, but not an organizer, and you wish to have an event posted, click on "Suggest a new Meetup", or send an email to membership@sfmensa.org.  Be sure and be specific as to what the event is, including a full description, date, time, and location.  If you'd like the event to recur on a regular basis (e.g., 3rd Wednesday of the month), be sure to specify that as well.

We hope to see you soon!

英語の発音をネイティブ化するグループ in San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

英語の発音をネイティブ化するグループ in San Francisco

Lingo Mii 発音グループは英語の発音をネイティブ化するミートアップグループです。英語の発音に困っている方は必見です!

ネイティブスピーカーとお話しした時、全く発音が通じずショックを受けたことはありませんか?

実は、英語の発音には日本語で発音できるものは一つも存在していません。そもそも、今まで発音の練習を体型的に行うチャンスはありましたでしょうか?人によっては中学、高校、大学と英語を勉強してきたと思うのですが、そこに「発音」というカテゴリーはありませんでした。

私たちは、LAに本社をおき、現地の大学の音声学、発音学の研究者と各国から来たESL(English Second Language)の人の発音改善支援プロジェクトを進めております。

特に、最近では、AIが発達してきておりあなたの発音を定量的に測定することが可能になってきております。当プロジェクトは最新テックと人間による指導のハイブリッド型の学習方法が効果的であることがわかってきており、その学習方法を実践していきます。


このグループは目的とレベルに分けて下記のように毎週開催しています。まずは気軽にご参加ください。参加後移動してもらうこともできます。

Bay Area Women's Midweek Hiking Group

Burlingame, CA

Bay Area Women's Midweek Hiking Group

We are a group of women who enjoy challenging weekday hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area.  This is not a group for beginners. Some of us are retired or with kids off to college, some are stay at home moms with school-age kids, others have flexible work schedules or are in between jobs. Some are international visitors/visa holders/green card holders or dual citizenships.  Regardless, we all have time during weekdays when the trails are empty and parking is a breeze!

We mainly focus on peninsula, south bay, east bay, and coastal trails, but also plan excursions to Mt. Tam, Marin Headlands, and San Francisco urban hikes.  Most hikes are 6-10 miles and moderate to strenuous with significant elevation gain of 1000-2000 feet elevation. Sometimes we do exploratory hikes and some hikes can include some scrambles - please be sure to read the entire hike description so you know what you are signing up for in advance. In order to keep to the planned schedule and keep the group moving, anyone unable to keep up will need to feel comfortable navigating their way back on their own.

All members can schedule a hike or suggest a hike, and are encouraged to do so through the meetup app! Let me know if you have questions on how to do this. 

We throw in many dog-friendly hikes too!  You can also join our Facebook page, where we post interesting articles, photos, and ideas for our next new trail.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1374244199552554/

We enjoy each others company and believe that friendly conversation is as much part of a good hike as the beautiful views!  If this sounds good, please come join us- we would love to meet you!

FAQ's

Can I bring my baby or toddler?  Although we love kids, our hikes are not suitable for young children

• Can I bring my dog?  Sometimes! I will specify which hikes are dog friendly.  If you are bringing a new dog, just tell us a little about him/her in the comment section


Please note that for safety reasons, we have a 3 hiker minimum requirement.  Unless we have at least 3 hikers confirmed 2 hours before the start of the hike, the hike will be cancelled.  Thanks for your understanding!

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

Mill Valley, CA

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

This group is for everyone who wants to explore the stunning beauty and remarkable trails of verdant Marin County. We spend much of our time hiking among the majestic redwoods, but we'also take advantage of Marin's glorious coastal-trail views, its high peaks, and its many streams and waterfalls -- sometimes all in the same hike!


Many of our hikes are fairly moderate in both distance and pace, though we do mix in longer hikes with more vertical, as well as occasional beginner hikes. But regardless of distance, virtually all of our hikes are limited in attendance, so that we can ensure everyone's safety and attempt to keep the group together as much as possible. Smaller groups also make for a more intimate, natural experience in the wilderness, which is particularly important to us because we like to get off the well-known trails as much as possible. There are plenty of 100-hikers-and-a-cloud-of-dust groups on Meetup, rampaging along the fire roads. This is not one of them.


Because we limit numbers, the majority of our hikes have wait lists. If you join a waitl ist, you are expected to monitor it, and your email, to find out whether you have moved up to confirmed. RSVPs and wait lists will close at 5 pm the night before the hike, and no one will move up after that time, so you don't have to worry about a late-night promotion to confirmed that you don't see until the next morning. 5 pm the night before is also the deadline for anyone on the confirmed list to cancel an RSVP.


PLEASE NOTE: If you fail to show up for a hike with a wait list, or cancel at the last minute, you'll be removed from the group. It's a one-strike policy. Be fair -- let someone else have your spot when you decide not to go.


If all of that sounds good, then please join us as we explore the striking beauty awaiting us in our local forests, mountains and coastal trails.


Let's go hiking in Marin!

Volleyball. Training and Playing. Ocean Beach, San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

Volleyball. Training and Playing. Ocean Beach, San Francisco

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?

Training and Playing was started out of the need to have more volleyball training locations available to the average, adult volleyball player. Up until now if you wanted to learn and improve your volleyball skills you would normally look online under “Volleyball in the area”, join a group that seemed appealing, and hopefully be accepted and learn by playing.

You probably found that most groups are looking for players who are intermediate or better. The few groups where beginners are welcome would not really have training available.

With Training and Playing you can get around like minded players who are wanting to train and get to playing as soon as possible. Besides players what else do you need to play volleyball? Balls, nets, courts, training courts, training nets. These are all available upon request.


WHO SHOULD JOIN?

IF you are an intermediate or advanced level player who has not found a group of players who are looking to improve their skills, come join us and get better faster.

If you are a novice or beginner who really needs to work on the basics, come join us and quickly get to the next level of play.

If you are a student player who has found that going the club route is way too expensive, come check us out.

If you just want to play volleyball and are a fun and generous person you should definitely come. We’ve been looking for you!


WHAT WILL YOU DO AT THE EVENTS?

First you will set up a training court.

Although this is training the main drill you will do is pepper. Is there a right way to pepper? Check this out: https://youtu.be/k-gqpvFq4Gw

We use pepper to warm up. Here are 12 variations of pepper. Three variations can be done with a net but don’t require a net. bit.ly/3CNO1wl

We then go into cooperative play, using the training court, where we focus on improving one or several skills at a time. You’re essentially peppering or playing; you play every ball as much as possible. It is during this time that you ask the players you’re practicing with for help on improving and you also offer tips that can help your fellow players. Here’s a video of players doing cooperative play. https://youtu.be/0-LPqjsZrPM

Finally, you do competitive play. There are rules bit.ly/2ZrDkky Here are a few videos of players doing competitive play https://youtu.be/Z2dDf7fscDo and https://youtu.be/zugeVkgJU0M
