Random Pagan Verse:
The Art is sacred: it is the Art of the working of energies, and it must always be taught inside of the Magic Circle. It has been found that teaching the Art frequently leads to a sexual attraction between the teacher and student -- and that this often improves the result.
If for any reason this is not desirable, it should be avoided at the beginning by both persons firmly - and verbally - resolving that their relations will be limited to that of brother and sister, or parent and child. It is for the reason that shared love often increases the result of working magic
that teaching should always be done from man-to-woman and from woman-to-man. When a coven is made up of members of all one sex, the masculine-to-feminine energy exchange should be adhered to whenever possible. Teaching people about the Craft, however, may be done whenever and wherever it is safe,
so long as the teacher is knowledgeable, the student is willing, and the information taught is available publicly or is not a secret of the Art. No-one may charge for teaching, unless it is to cover such expenses as the cost of the room, books or other printed materials, refreshments, and so forth.

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.
