Random Pagan Verse:
When using geographic boundaries, whenever anyone of Third Degree lives more than a league from the covenstead (or are about to),
any of these may found a new coven; indeed, any Witch living within the covenstead who wishes to form a new coven will inform the elders of this
intention and immediately move to a new dwelling beyond the boundaries of known covensteads. Members of any coven may choose to join the new coven when
it is formed, but they must totally avoid their old coven if they choose this course. The elders of the old and new covens should meet in peace and love
to determine the boundaries of the covens. Any Witch living outside of any two covens may choose to join either coven, but never both. All may meet for
the Great Festivals if the elders agree, so long as they meet in peace and love. Let the elders confer as to the use of this law when it is not directly
applicable. Always be aware that the splitting of a coven breeds bad feelings (energy vortices?); this law was made chiefly for this reason. And may happier times come!

The Nigerian teenager and gold medallist, Chika Amalaha, has been stripped of her Commonwealth Games weightlifting gold days after she was provisionally suspended from the Games for failing a drug test.

The 16-year-old won weightlifting gold with a combined total of 196kg in the women?s 53kg category.

Her ?A? sample was found to contain both amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide, which are both prohibited as diuretics and masking agents.

The 16-year-old, who won the women?s 53kg competition, provided positive ?A? and ?B? samples.

?The Commonwealth Games Federation has determined that Nigerian weightlifter, Chika Amalaha, has committed an anti-doping rule violation and has fully suspended her from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow,? the CGF said in a statement.

?As a result, Amalaha has been disqualified from her event at the Games, with her result in the competition nullified.?

Dika Toua from Papua New Guinea has been awarded the gold medal with the India duo Santoshi Matsa and Swati Singh claiming silver and bronze.

Amalaha was Nigeria?s first gold medal winner in Glasgow, equalling the Games snatch record of 82kg with her first attempt before lifting 85kg on her third.

Her combined total of 196kg was also a Games record and, according to the International Weightlifting Federation, she was the youngest woman to win a weightlifting title in Games history.
