Goalkeeper top priority for Reading FC in transfer window, say fans – Get Reading

Posted: November 25, 2019 at 1:45 am


without comments

Reading fans have urged the club to sign a new goalkeeper in the January transfer window.

Brazilian shotstopper Rafael is the current no.1 having joined the club late in the summer window after ending his contract early with Sampdoria.

But there is little in the way of back-up for the 29-year-old with both Joao Virginia and Sam Walker failing to convince between the sticks.

With this in mind, supporters reckon the club should sign another goalkeeper in the New Year to provide cover for Rafael.

In a fan survey conducted by Berkshire Live, 31 per cent of fans said the goalkeeping department was the one most in need of strengthening at Reading.

Nearly 23 per cent said a midfielder was needed, while a new striker and a left winger were also high on the list.

Former Reading loanee midfielder Lewis Baker, who is currently on loan at Fortuna Dusseldorf in the Bundlesliga from parent club Chelsea, is the player most fans want the club to sign in January.

The 25-year-old had a highly productive loan spell with Royals in the second half of last season and played an instrumental part as former boss Jose Gomes steered the side to Championship survival.

Danny Loader and Chris Gunter were two popular picks for which players should be loaned out by Reading in January.

Both players are out of contract in the summer and their days in Berkshire appear to be numbered.

A good number of fans who took the survey said the club's younger players - such as Josh Barrett, Michael Olise, Ryan East, Tom McIntyre and Gabriel Osho - all need a temporary exit in January.

Senior outcast pair Vito Mannone and Sone Aluko, whose loans expire at the end of the year, were identified by fans as players who should be sold in the upcoming window.

Gunter, Loader, Tyler Blackett and Sam Walker were also 'popular' picks by those who answered the survey.

Meanwhile, more than 60 per cent of fans who took the survey rated the season as three out of five - with one being disastrous and five as excelent. Almost 31 per cent gave the campaign a two.

A total of 78 per cent of fans said Reading were right to sack Gomes last month after the poor start to the season.

More than half who responded to the survey said midfielder Ovie Ejaria was the player of the season so far.

The Liverpool loanee has been in inspired form for Reading and is one of the top rated players in the league.

Ejaria was followed in the list by fellow midfielder John Swift and defenders Andy Yiadom and Michael Morrison.

Everton loanee Virginia has been named as the most disappointing player for Reading this season.

The 20-year-old has made just three appearances for Royals and has lost his place in the matchday squad after some high-profile errors.

Striker George Puscas was second in the list, with 16 per cent voting him as the most disappointing player so far.

The Romanian has scored just four goals in 16 appearances since his summer switch from Inter Milan. Pele and Loader were third and fourth respectively in the voting.

Fans appear to be fairly optimistic about what the season holds for Reading.

More than 60 per cent of loyal Royals said the club will finish between seventh and 12th in the Championship table come the end of the season.

Just over a quarter said Mark Bowen's side will finish between 13th and 21st in the standings.

Some fans (12 per cent) even predicted Reading to finish in one of the four play-off spots.

‘Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator’: Netflix documentary charts the rise of an empire through systematic abuse by a – MEAWW

Posted: at 1:44 am


without comments

A young charismatic Indian man, Bikram Choudhury, changed the face of yoga in America in the 1970s. Choudhury, with his distinct and grueling style of the ancient practice, earned a name amongst celebrities, counting stars like Elvis Presley, Shirley Maclaine, George Harrison, and even President Richard Nixon among his clients.

With extensive media exposure, Choudhury created a bad boy image for himself and spun tales of winning nonexistent yoga championships and purported health benefits of "hot yoga" which remained unquestioned at the time.

Choudhury, with enough recognition to go by, opened his own yoga studio and began offering $10,000 teacher training to the masses. His classes, however, were not what you would expect a typical yoga class to be. The massive auditorium with dozens of reverent disciples clinging to his every single instruction was vaguely reminiscent of the Rajneesh cult of the spiritual teacher Osho.

Through his classes, Choudhury had elevated himself to a godlike figure whose actions went unquestioned and unchallenged. His followers saw a father figure in him, and many believed he had changed their lives and bodies for the better with his trademark "Bikram Yoga."

His following and centers began expanding exponentially, making him the richest yoga guru in the world. However, that period is also when the red flags began showing. Netflix documentary 'Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator,' through a series of interviews of his students, details the months of unchecked abuse by the yoga guru who had become a predator.

Clad in just a black Speedo and a Rolex, Choudhury verbally attacked his students in class and then broke into melodious songs. His disciples, who had a cult-ish devotion to him, accepted their yoga guru's blatant abuse and even acquiesced to his demands of late-night massages. Sarah Baughn, Choudhury's student who completed her teacher training with him, was the first victim to publicly come forward, accusing him of sexual assault.

Baugh was midway through her training when the yoga guru first made his advances. She was called into his office where he asked her what were they going to do about their relationship.

The 20-something Baughn had no idea what he was talking about. Later that day in class, he placed her in standing bow pose in an entire room full of students and pulled on her leg, pushing her heart towards the floor. Choudhury then pushed his hips into Baughn as she stood vulnerable, and continued whispering in her ear, asking what should they do about their relationship. The unwarranted advances turned to abuse.

Baughn filed a lawsuit against Choudhury in 2014, alleging that he trapped her in his hotel room and forcibly attempted to initiate sex. Her public declaration resulted in floodgates being opened from other victims. They all had feared ostracism in the hot yoga community. Another student, Larissa Anderson, in the documentary, detailed how she was raped by Choudhury in his home while his wife and children were sleeping under the same roof.

Choudhury's first major lawsuit came from his former employee Micki Jafa-Bodden who sued him for unlawful termination after she began probing his predatory behavior towards his students.

Bikram Choudhury created a hyper-sexualized, offensive and degrading environment for women by, among other things, demanding that female staffers brush his hair and give him massages," Bodden said in her 2013 lawsuit.

He lost a $7.5 million civil lawsuit to Jafa-Bodden in 2016 and fled the United States, becoming a fugitive from the law. He has yet to pay Jafa-Bodden and has not faced any criminal charges.

Choudhury's story, however, is not yet over. He has continued to open centers in India and advertise for his teacher training classes, with the most recent being in Mexico, just a few hundred miles away from some of his victims.

'Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator' is streaming on Netflix now.

A Rejoinder to Makinde: Let the Real Work Start – P.M. News

Posted: at 1:44 am


without comments

Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State

By Lati Abayomi

I read this epistle full of lies and half-truths by Lolu Aderogba, hoping he would tell us the real governance issues not being addressed by Governor Seyi Makinde. Alas, I was disappointed! Therefore, I am forced to address the alternative facts presented by Aderogba with facts in the public domain available to all. Then, I will point out what the governor has done in the last six months that has somehow escaped Aderogbas notice.

Lets start with the Ibadan Circular Road project. At no point did Governor Seyi Makinde revoke the contract for the Ibadan Circular Road. Had Aderogba expended the level of energy he invested in calling out Makinde, to read his Twitter timeline, he would have known that the governor only suspended the project pending a meeting with the contractors.

A tweet posted on October 31, 2019, reads We visited Ibadan Circular Road, Lagos-Ibadan Bye Pass, this afternoon for an on-the-spot assessment of the work done so far. The agreement for this project was signed in 2017 and the work done so far is about 5.5%. The concession value is N67B for 32 Kilometres of road. Ive asked that the work be stopped for us to take a holistic look at the project, which isnt proceeding as it should, for a road thats so important to Oyo States economy. Well meet with the contractors to discuss specifics like funding/work plan & decide the projects future.

Following that meeting (The Nation Ibadan Circular Road; Makinde Rescinds Stop-Work Order November 3, 2019) the governor rescinded the order after ENL Consortium Ltd (the contractors) assured him that they now had the required funds to execute the project. They admitted that inability to raise funds prevented them from executing beyond 5.5% in nearly three years. The contractors were told to deliver the project by May 2020, as stated in the agreement signed with the previous administration in 2017, and they agreed to do so.

So, Aderogbas claim that ENL Consortium Ltd threatened to take legal action against the governor and Oyo State Government for revoking the Ibadan Circular Road contract is false and a figment of his imagination.

Did Governor Seyi Makinde refer to the contractor who was awarded Moniya-Iseyin road as faceless? Yes, he did. But in the English language, faceless does not mean unidentifiable. It would be preposterous to think so. The contract documents were in the governments possession, so it is evident that the contractor awarded the contract was known to the government. A quick dictionary check on usage would reveal that the expression was to convey that the contractor was an unknown quantity without a track record, given the magnitude and importance of the work awarded to it.

Now, let us address Globus Nigeria Limited and the forest reserves. Oyo State has the following Forest Reserves; 1) Gambari Forest Reserves 11,431 Hectares 2) Osho Forest Reserves 3,704 Hectares 3) Ijaiye Forest Reserves 28,491 Hectares 4) Olokemeji Forest Reserves 7,511 Hectares 5) Lanlate Forest Reserves 7,507 Hectares 6) Igangan Forest Reserves 39,627 Hectares 7) Olaseinde Forest Reserves 686 Hectares 8) Ooko/Iroo Forest Reserves 2,300 Hectares 9) Opara Forest Reserves 248,640 Hectares.

What exactly was reversed? The Commissioner for the Environment and Natural Resources, Hon Kehinde Ayoola, explained this via a Facebook post on September 9, 2019. Senator Abiola Ajimobis government, hiding behind a nebulous Agriculture policy, allotted a total of 260,000 Hectares to himself (26,000 hectares -6,000 from Gambari and 20,000 from Opara), party members, friends and cronies; this is what was revoked by Governor Seyi Makindes administration.

Ajimobis administration permitted some investors to establish fishing and poultry business in about 2,000 hectares at Gambari Forest Reserve only. The company, Globus Nigeria Ltd, was the only company referenced in Aderogbas article. Also in the same Gambari Reserve, Kopek Nigeria Ltd was given about 300 hectares for quarry services.

Globus Nigeria Ltd which rears fish and poultry inside Gambari Reserve has as part of the conditions to use that place, the planting of 1,000 hectares of trees yearly, as an environmental impact mitigation measure. This is in addition to paying N10M ground rent annually. Ajimobis allottees have no such stipulations in their agreements with the state government. It is important to note that despite lauding Ajimobis policy of allocating 260,000 Hectares of forest reserves, Aderogba could only reference Globus Nigeria Ltd with only 2,000 Hectares as the one company which was utilising the land for agricultural purposes.

According to Hon Ayoolas Facebook post referenced above, What makes these acquisitions reprehensible, and environmentalists and conservationists will agree, is that Forests are very vital in the fight against Global Warming and its attendant problem of Climate Change. Nations of the world are looking to not only preserve their forest resources but they are adding to it. But our man was trying to take away from our forest. Of cos, with the concurrence of His Excellency GSM, I have revoked the illegal allocations. We shall collaborate with the Ministry of Justice to take further necessary action. The information is available in the public space.

Ironically, Aderogba claimed Governor Makinde cancelled the Schools Governing Board (SGB) when in fact, this is one of the policies of Ajimobi which Makinde commended, as various newspapers reported on August 1, 2019. The Makinde led government had upon assuming office, reviewed the mode of operation of SGBs to prevent the extortion of students in public schools. The claim that the government cancelled SGBs and reversed itself following an outcry is false.

On Oyo States debt, according to data available on the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics (NBS) website, Oyo States debt in December 2018 was $104,997,383.47 external debt (~N32B at the official exchange rate of N306/$1) and N91,515,756,366.15 domestic debt. That is in total, N123B. This does not take into account debt incurred between January and May 2019 before the Governor Seyi Makinde administration was sworn in. Aderogba lied when he claimed that Oyo State debt was below N100B and his claim that Oyo State isnt one of the top 10 most indebted states in Nigeria is only half true. Oyo State ranked 9 in the top 10 states with the highest external debt profile in 2018. Considering the fact that Oyo State is ranked 27th out of 36 states in the 2019 Budgit States Sustainability Index (up from 30th in 2018), its debt profile should not be treated with such levity.

It is extremely mischievous for Aderogba to suggest that Oyo State debt of N123B (as at December 2018) is mostly made up of the potential World Bank loan of N72B ($200M). This is an outright lie. To be clear, while the World Bank loan for flood management is potentially $200M (N72B at the exchange rate of N306-$1), the money is not paid out at once and anyone familiar with the way World Bank loans operate will know that this is the case. The Ajimobi led government accessed 25% of the amount $45M (N13.7B at exchange rate of N360-$1) which has already been added to Oyo States external debt profile of $104M.

So N72B ($200M) is what the Oyo State government will be able to access in total from the World Bank, but the money is not paid out at once, it is given in tranches. It is only added to Oyo States debt profile after it has been accessed. For the record, only $45M has been paid out till date by the World Bank, and this was paid out to the previous administration led by Ajimobi. Had the entire $200M been paid out by the World Bank, Oyo States external debt profile would have been a whopping $259M as at December 2018, not $104M. At the risk of being pedantic, I urge Lolu Aderogba to confirm facts before putting pen to paper.

On the N7.6B Commercial Agricultural Credit Scheme, there is no record that the governor condemned the loan. Governor Makindes position was evident even before he was sworn in as governor. As Governor-elect, he instituted a suit in April 2019 to restrain the Ajimobi-led administration from accessing and spending the money a month to the end of its tenure. He was only against the loan being spent on agricultural equipment one month to the end of Ajimobis tenure as he believed that it would be embezzled. The governor shared the court documents via his social media accounts on October 10, 2019.

Upon assuming office, the governor then approached the Oyo State House of Assembly to approve a change of purpose for the loan so that the loan (which was already being repaid as a first line charge by the government) could be put to use. This new purpose farm estates in Eruwa and Akufo was approved by the Oyo State House of Assembly. All these facts are readily available in the public space for anyone interested in the truth and not looking to mislead with lies, half-truths and propaganda.

Since he was sworn in on May 29, 2019, Governor Seyi Makinde has gotten down to the business of governance, crafting and implementing people-centred policies. He has consistently stated that his administration is resting on four pillars Education, Healthcare, Security and the Economy.

In education, Makindes administration has scrapped all fees and levies leading to an influx of students into public schools, provided exercise books for both primary schools and secondary school students, provided textbooks for secondary school students, started renovating all public schools in the state in tranches of 100 at a time, increased the budget for education from 3% to 10% of total budget allocated, paid N500,000 bursary to the backlog set of Oyo State students of the Nigerian Law School, approved the hiring of teachers to meet current shortfalls and approved the retraining of teachers. Oyo State had 400,000 out of school children in the latest data released before Makinde assumed office. This is a ticking time bomb and the government must focus on improving access to and quality of education in the state.

In healthcare, the government has embarked on renovating and equipping of hospitals (Adeoyo and Jericho Specialist) and Primary Healthcare Centres across the state.

For security, the government has embarked on the nearly completed Light Up Ibadan project, provided an emergency contact number, 615 and recently distributed 100 security patrol vehicles to enable security agencies to react speedily to reports of criminal activities. The proscription of NURTW for security reasons still subsists.

On the economy, since June 2019, the government ensures the salary payment of civil servants on or before the 25th of the month, providing liquidity for the local economy. The government has also by improving revenue collection and plugging leakages, increased internally generated revenue by N400M without raising taxes. The re-awarded Moniya-Iseyin road when completed will aid economic activities in the state. In September 2019, the government entered into a partnership with agritech company, Farmcrowdy, to work with 50,000 farmers in Oyo State over the course of 3 years.

The government has transmitted Executive Bills on investment and financial crimes to the Oyo State House of Assembly which is still deliberating on these bills. Governor Makinde set up a Due Process Office in June 2019 to ensure that due process is followed for the award of government contracts.

These are some of the things the six-month-old government has done. There is still a lot to be done but with each passing day, Governor Makinde demonstrates that the people of Oyo State made the right choice in electing him to office with a wide margin of victory over his opponent. Lolu Aderogba should take his own advice and ensure he only communicates the truth about governance in Oyo State in his opinion pieces going forward.

Just exhale with the sound, Oooooo! – Economic Times

Posted: November 19, 2019 at 11:51 am


without comments

By Osho

When you go to sleep tonight and every night following tonight, before going to sleep put off the light, sit on your bed, close your eyes and exhale deeply through the mouth with the sound O Ooooo. Go on exhaling with the sound O, as deeply as possible. Your stomach goes in, the air moves out, and you go on creating the sound O.

Remember, I am not saying Aum, I am saying simply O. It will become Aum automatically. You need not make it; then it is false. You simply create the sound O. When it becomes more harmonious and you are enjoying it, suddenly you will become aware it has become Aum. But dont force it to become Aum, then it is false. When it becomes spontaneously Aum, then, it is something vibrating from within. And this sound Aum is the deepest sound, the most harmonious, the most basic.

When it happens and you enjoy and you flow in its music, your whole body and your brain relax. With the sound Aum, you will go on relaxing and your sleep will have a different quality, altogether. When you have exhaled completely and you feel that now no more exhalation is possible, the whole breath has gone out, stop for a single moment. Dont inhale, dont exhale just stop. In that stop you are in the ocean.

Just remain so for a single moment and just look at what is happening. Be aware where you are: witness the whole situation that is there in that single stopped moment. Time is no more there, because time moves with breaths; breathing is the process of time. Because you breathe you feel time moving. When you dont breathe, you are just like a dead man. Time has stopped, there is no process anywhere; everything has stoppedas if the whole existence has stopped with you. In that stopping, you can become aware of the deepest source of your being and energy. So for a single moment, stop. Then inhale through the nose, but dont make any effort to inhale.

Remember, make all the effort to exhale, but dont make any effort to inhale; just let the body inhale. You simply relax your hold and let the body take the inhalation. You dont do anything. That too is beautiful and works wonders. You will feel a deep silence surrounding you, because then you know your effort is not needed for life. Life breathes itself. It moves by itself of its own cause. It is a river; you unnecessarily go on pushing it. You will see that the body is taking the inhalation. Your effort is not needed, your ego is not needed you are not needed. When the body has taken a full inhalation, stop for a single moment again. Again watch.

These two moments are totally different. When you have exhaled completely and stopped, that stopping is just like death. When you have inhaled totally and then stopped, that stopping is the climax of life. Remember, inhalation is equivalent to life, exhalation equivalent to death. Thats why the first thing a child does when born is to inhale, and the last thing the same child will do when old, dying, will be to exhale. On this earth, the first thing you did while entering life was inhalation, and the last thing you will do will be exhalation. (Vedanta: Seven steps to Samadhi, Osho Times International.

Steve Ewen: Unbeaten Knights warned to fear the Rams in high school football playoffs – The Province

Posted: at 11:51 am


without comments

Theyre still the Mount Douglas Rams.

Thats the message St. Thomas coach Steve De Lazzari is hammering into his unbeaten Knights (7-0) as the Eastern Conference regular-season champions from Burnaby get set to face the Western Conference fourth-place Rams (4-3) of Victoria in the Subway Bowl triple-A high school football provincial quarterfinals.

The game goes Saturday at B.C. Place Stadium.

They always seem to elevate their level of play at this time of year, De Lazzari said of the Rams, who have won five B.C. titles in the past eight seasons, including last year, when they crushed the Knights 43-21 in this same quarterfinal round.

Weve seen it from them before. Theyll be third or fourth in their conference and then theyll just start taking care of opponent after opponent in the playoffs.

You cant just look at this season when you talk about them. Were looking at their history. Theyre obviously doing something right over there.

The Rams were second in the Western Conference regular season last year. After dispatching STM, they would beat the Vancouver College Fighting Irish 31-28 in the semifinals and then bounce the New Westminster Hyacks 48-24 in the championship game with a team that featured 12 seniors and star quarterback Gideone Kremler.

Hunter Swift, whos in Grade 10, has taken over the passing chores this season. Mt. Douglas dropped a 33-21 decision to New Westminster and a 35-14 game to Vancouver College to begin the regular season, but theyve won five of six games since, including a 42-12 decision over North Deltas Seaquam Seahawks in last weeks opening round of playoffs.

STM had a bye last week thanks to their first-place finish.

Peter Primeau rushed for 117 yards on 17 carries and scored three touchdowns for Mt. Douglas against Seaquam.

In the regular season, Swift passed for 826 yards and completed 50 per cent (53 of 106) of his attempts. He threw eight touchdown passes and five interceptions.

Hunter has steadily improved each week, and is an awesome young man, Mt. Douglas coach Mark Townsend explained via text.

We really did not know what to expect this season but the kids are competing hard and improving, he added. Although facing this very talented STM team is an extremely difficult task, and beating them would be a big upset, our kids are excited to have the opportunity.

Townsend was quick to praise an STM defence led by defensive end Kaishaun Carter and a rushing game featuring running back Nick Osho, who has run for 1,525 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.

St. Thomass ground game was supposed to also feature Marc Abboud this year, but he suffered a broken leg in an Aug. 30 preseason game in Hawaii. De Lazzari hinted earlier that Abboud might be back for the playoffs but says chances are hes not going to play on Saturday.

Examining a jealousy that’s a long way from the green-eyed monster – The Japan Times

Posted: November 2, 2019 at 5:50 pm


without comments

Comparison is a very foolish attitude, said Indian mystic Chandra Mohan Jain, popularly known as Osho (1931-90), because each person is unique and incomparable. Once this understanding settles in you, jealousy disappears.

It may be true, but the fact seems to be that this understanding settles in very few of us, and jealousy, as a shaper of character and social relations, is here to stay, barring a mass movement toward mysticism nowhere on the horizon at present.

Everyone knows the biblical stories of the jealous God and the first murder by Cain, jealous of the favor God showed his brother, Abel. One of the biblical Ten Commandments forbids covetousness, which in Buddhism is one of the three evils, together with anger and delusion.

But can we help ourselves? The business magazine President this month surveys 1,000 respondents, men and women, aged from their 20s to their 60s, and computes an average jealousy ratio of 42 percent, pretty much constant across the age and gender spectrum. What exactly this ratio means is not clear that nearly half of us are jealous? That were all jealous nearly half the time? Or is it a measure of the intensity of our jealousy when its aroused? Interpretation is at the readers discretion. The point is, its out there. Is it in you? You know best.

Its in the animals. Its in birds, President hears from psychological counselor Shinrai Oshima. Young birds fling helpless infant siblings out of the nest to their death. They will not share parental attention; they will have it all and no moral delicacy hold them back, as it would most of us. Presumably the parents are forgiving. Evolution would have stamped the practice out otherwise.

Love filial, parental, erotic is a demanding passion. Blighting its finer qualities is its possessiveness. Were not as different from baby birds as we like to think. Love shared is love threatened. Its our instinctive fear of solitude, Oshima says, that makes us feel that way. Today the pursuit of success has largely replaced the pursuit of love, and jealousy has evolved accordingly. How can I be content with my success if you my friend, my colleague, my child, someone I read about in the newspaper are more successful than I am?

Success has many symbols: an expensive foreign car, a luxurious house, money in the bank, friends in high places, a crowded social calendar, good looks and so on. All, according to President, arouse jealousy varying degrees of it in various people, but the upshot is that all these things symbolize superiority, and we all want to be, or seem, superior, whatever lip service we pay to equality. Stanford University research confirms it and even quantifies it: Men on average feel 22 percent superior to the average person.

Maybe thats good for us. Oshima says jealousy flows from the hippocampus, a region of the brain associated with learning. It energizes us, goads us onward against lethargy and discouragement. Maybe the more jealous we are the more talented, or vice versa. Certainly talent attracts jealousy parental jealousy of bright children; bosses jealousy of subordinates who outshine them. Its not a rule, but almost anyones life will provide anecdotal evidence.

Jealousy is shared by men and women, old and young (children are outside Presidents purview) but there are differences. Male jealousy, testosterone-driven, tends to be aroused by income, productivity, luxury and other symbols of successful competition. Women focus more on relationships: Shes more popular than I am, gets invited to more parties, gets on better with the boss; why was she invited to that office drinking party (which I didnt want to go to anyway) and not me? Women no longer depend on men as they once did, but age-old impulses die hard, and this one, says Oshima, is rooted in the primordial female search for a mate.

Expensive foreign cars who cares about them? Older men, mostly. Their jealousy can still be aroused at the sight of this preeminent status symbol of their youth. Todays youth, less car-driven, have other concerns: likes on social media; clothes that are photogenic on social media. Not that older people are indifferent to clothes. Its the generation in between that is, relatively. Fashion is back, after a 20-year span in which it counted for little.

Theres jealousy and jealousy. President, without defining the term, deals with its most benign form envy. Shedding it would no doubt make us better people leading more wholesome lives. Still, Presidents jealousy is a long way from Shakespeares green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on. Shakespeares Othello was a man in love; Presidents survey respondents are comparatively unimpassioned men and women making their way in the workaday world, forever wanting a little more than they have as who, Osho notwithstanding, does not, in an economy stressing upward mobility?

We can only rise so high. Theres always someone richer, more powerful, better connected, better loved. Each person is unique and incomparable, said Osho; poverty, therefore, is as much an asset as wealth, once the understanding settles. Brutus magazine this month offers a suggestion conducive to that understanding: tea ceremony. Its an ancient Japanese pastime, excruciatingly formal to despisers of formality, soothingly ritualistic to the more favorably inclined. It can settle the understanding, says tea master Yuriko Ishida. Concentrating your consciousness on tea, you leave worldly thoughts behind; a moment encompasses eternity. I like that feeling, she adds, disarmingly.

Jealousy is the worldliest of thoughts feelings, rather. It has no place in the tea room. A century ago, writer and art critic Kakuzo Okakura (1863-1913), in The Book of Tea, invited the samurai to leave his sword on the rack beneath the eaves, the tea room being preeminently the house of peace. Then he will bend low and creep into the room through a small door not more than 3 feet in height. This proceeding was incumbent on all guests, high and low alike, and was intended to inculcate humility in whose light jealousy withers, if it ever does.

Ipswich Town taking a look at Reading defender – The 72 – We Love the Football League

Posted: at 5:50 pm

The 21-year-old played for the Tractor Boys Under-23s side last night against Coventry City, as per a report by TWTD.

Osho is out-of-contract at the Madejski Stadium next summer so may be weighing up his options for his next move.

He joined the Royals as a youngster and rose up through their youth ranks. The centre-back signed his first professional contract in July 2016.

Osho made his senior debut in a Championship fixture against Middlesbrough in September 2018, a game in which he was awarded the Man of the Match award. He has since made three more appearances for Reading.

He was loaned out to non-league side Maidenhead United for a brief spell in the 2017/18 before joining National League outfit Aldershot Town the season after, where he played 11 times in all competitions.

Osho then spent the second-half of last term on loan in League One at Bristol Rovers.

His long-term future at Reading depends on whether he part of their new manager Mark Bowens plans. He hasnt played for them so far this season, hence why he has been allowed to join Ipswich on a temporary basis.

Osho has gained some senior experience from his loan spells away from Reading and could be a useful signing for Ipswich if they choose to snap him up. He would add more options and depth to Paul Lamberts promotion chasing side.

Alia Bhatt may have rejected Aamir Khans Osho movie because she was committed to Salman Khans Inshallah,… – Hindustan Times

Actor Alia Bhatt came out the biggest loser when Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Salman Khan decided to shelve their film, Inshallah. According to a report in The Times of India, Alia had turned down the opportunity to star in a film with Aamir Khan, because she had already committed to being a part of Sanjays film, said to be an epic romantic drama.

A source told the daily that Alia is upset about the situation. Alia was approached for a film with Aamir Khan. However, she had to decline the offer as she had reserved all the dates for Inshallah, the source said.

Alia was looking forward to collaborating with Salman and SLB. The actress is very upset as she gave up on various other projects too during the period, the source added.

The Aamir Khan film that was offered to her could have been the long-rumoured Osho movie that was being discussed last year. Aamir was reported to be playing spiritual guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho) in the film while Alia was expected to play his disciple and convicted attempted murderer, Ma Anand Sheela.

At last years Actress Roundtable with journalist Rajeev Masand, Alia even said she would like to play Maa Anand Sheela in a movie. I find that story super fascinating, she said. When Masand pointed out that word around town is that shes already playing the part, she feigned confusion at the question. No but I would kill to (play her), she had added.

Salman announced on Monday that Inshallah has been pushed and will not release on Eid 2020, as previously announced. The film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali is pushed but I will still see you all on Eid, 2020. Insha-Allah, he wrote on Twitter. He later wrote in another tweet that hinted his film Kick 2 would release on Eid 2020 instead.

According to a source close to Bhansali, the filmmaker didnt appreciate the constant interference in his process. It has been reported that Salman had asked for certain changes to be made to the script. The source said, Sanjay Leela Bhansali respects and loves his actors and suggestions are welcome but not if they aim to alter the narrative. Hence, he has taken the decision to shelve the film. However, they are still friends and Sanjay Leela Bhansali has immense love and respect for him.

Salman later told Mumbai Mirror in an interview, Sanjay was a friend even before we started working on Khamoshi. He had come to meet me through Manisha Koirala. After that, we collaborated on Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. When he came to me with this film, I liked it and we decided to work together again. One thing I can say is that Sanjay wont do gaddaari with his film. I want him to make the film he wants to make. Nothing changes between us as friends and Im sure nothing has changed in Sanjays heart for me. Im extremely close to his mother (Leela) and sister (Bela). I wish him all the best. He and I will still work in future on a film, Inshallah.

Osho takes five in STM win – Burnaby Now

It was Osho, Osho and more Osho last Saturday.

The Seaquam Seahawks were unable to contain St. Thomas Mores Nick Osho, as the Grade 11 ball carrier counted five touchdowns to lead a solid 31-22 victory in North Delta.

The wet weather added a layer of difficulty for ball handlers on both teams. But Osho was able to hold on en route to a big game.

We got off to a great start, even though it didnt work exactly how we planned it, remarked STM coach Steve De Lazzari. We were successful with an onside kick on the opening kickoff, but we were intercepted in the end zone.

On Seaquams first offensive play moments later, Osho stripped the ball free to give the Knights great field position. Hed carry it in from 14 yards out for the games first major.

The Burnaby squads second major came after another turnover off their second kick, setting up Oshos two-yard score.

After the Seahawks scored in the second quarter, Osho countered with a 12-yard dash to end the half.

Then on the first play of the second half, he broke free for an 80-yard major to make it 25-7. That comfort zone was shortlived, however, as the Seahawks attacked and got within a field goal of tying the game.

But Osho wasnt finished. He stripped Seaquams quarterback, and teammate Sean Oreta corralled the loose ball. A few plays later, Osho iced it with a four-yard run for a TD.

Having coached his older brother, David, I knew (Nick) had this kind of potential. He was following in some talented footsteps, and hes really developed his ground game this season, noted De Lazzari.

Osho finished with 260 yards on 29 carries, in addition to two forced fumbles from his outside linebacker position. Quarterback Anthony De Lazzari, meanwhile, completed five of eight pass attempts for 65 yards.

Kaishaun Carter would tally nine tackles, while Bryson Vanloo and Osho counted five tackles apiece.

The Knights remain ranked fifth overall in the B.C. AAA football poll.

They now venture to Coquitlam to play the winless Centennial Centaurs on Friday (7:30 p.m. at Percy Perry Stadium).
