La Liga refers to the first division of the Spanish league. The main professional soccer league in Spain is officially named as Liga BBVA for sponsorship reasons. It is one of the most professional and exciting leagues in Europe, attracting some of the best soccer talent from around the world.

Just like any other league, La Liga is also governed by some strict rules and regulations regarding promotion and relegation of clubs, as well as how many non-EU players are allowed to play in the league. Let’s take a quick look at the league rules.

Ascent-Relegation Regulation

Every year, 20 teams participate in the competition. The three teams that finish bottom of the league table are relegated to the 2nd division of the Spanish league system, with the top two finishers in the next lower division and the winner in a play-off replacing the relegated clubs. .

Inclusion of non-EU players

There is an upper limit when it comes to the retention of non-EU players in this top division of the Spanish league. In La Liga, each team can retain a maximum of three foreign players. Even in the second division, each participating club can keep only 2 players. If any La Liga club is relegated to the lower division, they are allowed to keep the same number of foreign players until their contracts expire.

What does “Not EU” mean? The sentence has been repeated many times after various verdicts of the Court of Justice of the European Communities. According to a decision adopted by the Spanish Federation in this regard, the participating teams of LaLiga have the right to make the best use of the rules and bring many foreign players to their squad.

Claim of Citizenship

Foreign players can apply for Spanish citizenship from the countries from which their ancestors descended. In La Liga, a player from outside the EU can claim Spanish citizenship if he has played in Spain for at least five years and this can result in triple citizenship. Let us give you an example. Leo Franco was born in Argentina and is of Italian descent. He is able to apply for Spanish citizenship, having played in the country for over five years.

Players arriving from ACP countries, including Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, are not considered in the non-EU category under the Kolpak ruling.

Breach of rules and conduct

All La Liga clubs are required to comply with the rules and regulations clearly specified by the highest authority in the Spanish football league system which, in turn, ensures compatibility with the guidelines drawn up by FIFA, the governing body. of soccer in the world. In recent times, FIFA has sanctioned Barcelona for not complying with the rules regarding the transfer of players after the accusation of transferring minor players (under 18 years of age).

The defending La Liga champions are not allowed to play any new players until January 2016. The club appealed against the ban, but it was not lifted. However, they have been allowed to sell players during the time of the transfer ban.

Now that the NBA Playoffs are over, it’s time for NBA superstars to come together for a better cause, that’s Team USA. In recent months, NBA teams like Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers , Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs and more, have been battling in amazing games to prove who is the better team. in the NBA Now that the battle is over, players from many of the NBA teams and other teams will have to join hands, train together and work together to conquer the world in Beijing this August.

The Summer Olympics are an event that occurs every four years. For me, the most exciting part of the Summer Olympics is the basketball tournament. I remember watching the Dream Team from 1992 when they took on the world of basketball. With the likes of Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing, the basketball Dream Team smashed the competition and won the gold medal. Since then, basketball has become a more mainstream sport, making it difficult for Team USA to win gold at the recent Olympics.

The NBA has a lot of stars now who are not from the United States. Stars like Yao Ming and Pau Gasol will play for their home countries during the Olympics, while Team USA will feature some of their own teammates. So how will NBA stars like Kobe Bryant feel when he has to play along with his opponents to take down teammate Pau Gasol? Will NBA players be able to make the adjustment of turning opponents into teammates and teammates into opponents?

The final 12-man roster for the USA team that will compete in the 2008 Olympics was recently announced. The roster features:

  • Lebron James
  • prince tayshaun
  • carlos bozer
  • carmelo antonio
  • Dwight Howard
  • chris bosh
  • jason kidd
  • Chris Paul
  • deron williams
  • kobe ​​bryant
  • michael redd
  • Dwyane Wade

All of these players come from different teams, with the exception of Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams, who play for the Utah Jazz. Almost all of them also played in the 2008 NBA Playoffs. So now they must come together as one team with one goal: to win gold in Beijing. Can they do it? I think they will do well, but they are definitely not a team comparable to the 1992 Dream Team. I wish them the best of luck on their trip to China and I will be cheering for them at every game. Let’s go Team USA!

Chelsea’s latest campaign offered a revealing commentary on the high stakes of modern top-flight football and the narrow margin between perceived success and failure. For the Blues it was a season dominated by a generally unloved manager’s attempt to take the team further than his beloved predecessor had taken it.

Following José Mourinho at Stamford Bridge was always going to be the highest order, but anyone other than Avram Grant, with any boss other than Roman Abramovich, would probably have been lauded for bringing Chelsea so close to treble glory. Defeated in extra time in the Carling Cup final; trailed by two points in the Premier League title race despite racking up 85 points (the first time a team had scored so many without securing the title); and defeated in a penalty shootout after extra time in the Champions League final – Grant’s stab at football immortality with the Blues was heroic.

But it was a flop all the same, and his reward, after being doubted, ridiculed and cursed with weak praise, was dismissal, a couple of days after John Terry’s kick hit the post in the shootout. shots in Moscow to give Manchester United the coveted European crown.

Chelsea had lost just two Premier League games out of 32 under Grant: the first, against United at Old Trafford and then against Arsenal at Ashburton Grove. In the critical closing stages of the season, the Blues beat both the Gunners and United at Stamford Bridge and actually kept the title race against Sir Alex Ferguson’s side alive until the last day of the campaign, making it That says a lot about his determination and consistency.

They were relentless in their quest for the title, beating Arsenal at the end of March to finish second and come close to overtaking the defending champions. But two points dropped in a home draw against Wigan, for whom Emile Heskey scored a 91st-minute equalizer on 14 April, proved costly, although United’s significantly better goal difference was always worth an extra point if the push had come. .

That reflected the Achilles heel of Grant’s team: they played without the attacking flair and flair of United or Arsenal and actually scored the fewest goals in the top four. Although they kept a remarkable 21 clean sheets at the other end, Abramovich had demanded ‘expansive’ football after Mourinho, but got more of the same down-to-earth, pragmatic stuff under Grant. Without being able to deck that out with silverware, or win over a skeptical local crowd, Grant was always on borrowed time. Speculation about his future, which reached a fever pitch after a Carling Cup final loss to Tottenham London and an embarrassing FA Cup quarter-final loss to Barnsley, was a constant accompaniment of the Grant’s reign.

His team showed character and resilience, especially in defence, but often struggled for creativity and goals, with Didier Drogba scoring just eight in La Liga, and January import Nicolas Anelka managing just one, though he mostly played away. position. Dynamic central midfielder Michael Essien also spent too much time filling in for the right-back, while the manager failed to get the best of Florent Malouda’s expensive summer purchase. There was an over-reliance on midfielders Frank Lampard (who had his own injury and personal problems last season) and Michael Ballack (who emerged as the Blues’ most influential player in the final third of the campaign). His goalscoring and dynamism helped bring Chelsea so close to dazzling prizes, though it was symptomatic that pundits and many fans felt his contribution owed more to grief than to Grant’s leadership. That was the burden imposed on him by the Israeli’s apparent lack of charisma.

summer activity

The managerial soap opera at Stamford Bridge ended when Grant was unceremoniously sacked, with his successor announced during Euro 2008 as Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari. The Brazilian arrives with everything Grant lacked: gravitas, a hugely impressive resume, charisma, the authority that comes with a reputation as a disciplinarian and the respect of the players. Scolari is, after all, a World Cup winner who has also won the Copa Libertadores twice.

If there are reservations because he has been out of club football for seven years, the risk seems small. The 59-year-old has been there and done it before, and if dealing with the English tabloids is one aspect of your new job you probably don’t like, it’s unlikely you’ll find it any more uncomfortable than dealing with the media at your Native Brazil.

Scolari is the fourth Chelsea manager of the Abrasmovich era; the previous three, Claudio Ranieri, Mourinho and Grant, were sacked despite offering what at most clubs would pass for relative success. So Scolari knows what to expect and what is expected: to win back the Premier League title from United and win the Champions League for the first time in Chelsea’s history. The other imperative is to achieve both through a stimulating, entertaining and attacking style of football. really simple. The key question is: Will Scolari be able to adjust to the demands of club football quickly and efficiently enough to deliver what is required in his first season back in the academy?

It’s off to a decent start. Drogba and Lampard, both heavily tipped to join Mourinho at Inter Milan, are still at Bridge and seem likely to stay for at least next season. Portuguese winger José Bosingwa, well known to Scolari, was recruited and waiting for him, and another familiar face has since arrived, the creative and driven Deco. Speculation persists that Robinho could still join them, and that would certainly strengthen their attacking options and sharpen the goal threat, where the Blues were lacking last season. The fans would probably be happier to have an additional quality striker on board, unless the form of Andriy Shevchenko and Claudio Pizarro underwent a dramatic transformation over the summer.

In terms of departures, Claude Makelele’s return to France should be adequately covered by the appearance of John Obi Mikel in the holding midfielder role, while Steve Sidwell, while a good player, was never really used, so that no one will miss him. The transfers of Tal Ben Haim (Manchester City) and Khalid Boulahrouz (Stuttgart) will not leave any gaps in Scolari’s forces either.

The preseason has been useful if exhausting: the goodwill trip to China and Malaysia was great for public relations, but arguably of only limited value to Scolari in terms of preparation. But going to Moscow for the Railway Cup offered a more relevant test and, setting aside another shootout in the Russian capital, Chelsea can reflect on last weekend with satisfaction. The resounding 5-0 win over AC Milan will have made many take notice, as will Anelka’s four-goal salvo in the rout.

Scolari has said he is now more or less clear on what his starting XI will be for the Premier League opener against Portsmouth, so at least one of the main pre-season goals has been met.

Analysis and Forecast

There will be a lot of interest in how well and how quickly Scolari fits into his new job. He will have the benefit of the doubt, something Grant never enjoyed; but there will still be the specter of Mourinho, who won the Premier League and the League Cup in his first season at the Bridge after arriving from Portugal. The parallels are there for direct comparison. His press conferences promise to be entertaining, but it’s on the pitch that the entertainment quotient will come under most scrutiny.

The addition of Bosingwa should add some genuine quality on the right side to an already formidable defence, behind which Petr Cech has a bit of luck after a miserable spell, so Chelsea will once again be one of the toughest teams to annotate.

And in midfield they have a veritable cornucopia of riches. With Essien returned to center where he is at his best, Ballack in the kind of form he displayed during the latter stages of last season and at Euro 2008, Deco’s vision of adding a new creative dimension to Chelsea and Lampard’s game in form and focus, Mikel Offering power and muscle to run, plus the likes of Joe Cole, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Malouda to provide pace and width on the flanks, Scolari’s challenge will be finding the right mix and balance while keeping his team happy. all its stars

Anelka issued a warning in Moscow and Scolari may be prepared to play to his strengths, down the middle, at Drogba’s expense in a way Grant was hesitant to do. The fact that Drogba is likely to miss the start of the season with injury could make that decision easier. Salomon Kalkou impressed last season, but too often made the wrong choice with his last ball, so we can expect an improvement there.

Scolari has indicated that Shevchenko will not be in the starting line-up, at least initially, but the Ukrainian has said that he is determined to make an impact at Chelsea and if he is enthusiastic rather than timid when he comes off the bench, then he’ll give your manager a useful option.

Chelsea are certain to challenge hard for the title, and with the strength of their squad in depth and a seemingly unassailable home record, they are likely to be in the top places for most of the campaign. They have the playing resources and now, they hope, the right coach to win big honors again. But a lot will also depend on United, Arsenal and Liverpool, at least, so how Scolari reacts to the challenge from the Big Four and how he plans his head-to-head tactics could prove decisive.

I expect the Blues to be challenging on all fronts until the late stages and possibly pick up a cup; but winning the Premier League title at Scolari’s first attempt, after being out of the club’s game for a long time, could be a bridge too far. A top three finish then, but not first place.

True or false? Teams that practice good teamwork contribute to the success of an organization.

Not just “true” but blatantly true.

The fact may be plain and simple, but creating a successful team, leading a successful team or participating in a successful team is not that simple and simple. The catchy word is “successful.”

Creating a team is easy. Sitting in the leader’s chair can be quite simple. Team membership can mean simply showing up.

Aim successful? Wait and wait a second.

This article explores two requirements for team success. For each requirement, we explore specific action items to help you and your team meet those requirements.

We start with trust.

Trust: the foundation of a successful team

A team that builds its harmony on trust enjoys the ease and enthusiasm that success brings. In fact, that foundation of trust makes the harmony even sweeter.

Steven Covey, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, states: “Trust is the highest form of human motivation. It brings out the best in people. But it takes time and patience…”

Trust and team are almost one. However, you cannot assume that confidence develops naturally as part of the team’s personality. Bringing trust—what it means, how it works, and why it matters—to the forefront of every team member’s mind can go a long way toward team success. A big step that demands your attention.

Here are three underlying benefits your organization—and your customers—will experience once your team is working with high levels of trust.

increased efficiency — As team members trust each other to fulfill their responsibility, they will all be able to serve their specific roles more fully. The decrease in distractions gives an increase in efficiency.

improved unit — The more each member of a team trusts the other members, the stronger the team assumes. This unity strengthens the commitment of the team to fulfill its purpose.

mutual motivation — When two (or more) people trust each other, each consciously and subconsciously strives to maintain the trust of the others. That motivation stimulates each team member to seek maximum performance.

So how do you build trust as a critical team possession?

Here is the short answer: build a clear structure and process to promote trust. Team members want to trust each other from the start. However, if specific tools and tactics to build trust are lacking, they will have a hard time building that trust.

Below are three traits that establish a foundation for trust among team members. Notice how each trait focuses on the interactions between teammates.

open expression — Each team member needs ongoing opportunities to express their thoughts about the team’s purpose, process and procedures, performance, and personality. From the start of the team, the team leader can initiate the opportunity for each individual to speak about the team’s actions. A truly effective leader ensures that even the quietest member is heard (and thus increasingly comfortable speaking). The more continuously all members of a team have opportunities to express themselves openly, the more they will become accustomed to speaking freely and being listened to. Open expression quickly becomes everyone’s delight, and not just the leader’s responsibility.

Stock Information — When it comes to information relevant to the team and the role of the team, the rule should be “all for one and one for all.” The information available to one team member must be available to all members. The secret of this trait is in its process. Standardized practices for sharing information equitably are simple. A few minutes setting up a Email address and holding a five minute update every morning are two examples. These can establish patterns of behavior of the type “everyone gets to know what everyone gets to know.” The level of trust increases when no one is afraid of receiving less information than others.

performance reliability — We trust the people we can count on. We have people who do what they say they will do when they say they will. Conscientious work on the first two traits produces results on the third. Open expression and shared information improve the reliability of team members’ performance. Open communication can put everyone’s performance cards on the table: strengths and weaknesses, trust and fears. Equitable reporting allows everyone to know what and how each other team member contributes to success. This knowledge produces shared support, praise, and assistance. What’s more like a team than that? When the expectations of each team member are sincere and open, each team member strives to perform at their full strength for the good of the team.


The following five tips support the idea that Open expression, fairness of information and reliability of performance they grow from how well a team communicates within itself. These tips are for the team leader and all team members.

1. Talk the talk. Take responsibility for modeling Open Expression. Don’t be afraid to share information about yourself. Encourage others to do the same. follow it.

2. Build the pattern. In team meetings and water cooler talks, establish the pattern of tell and ask. Share information about your work and ask questions about your teammate’s work. A bit of repetition is needed to anchor the pattern. It’s worth it.

3. Distribute to Discuss. Have the team believe that one reason for distributing information to everyone is so that it can be discussed. “New data” can be a constant item on the meeting agenda. “What do you think?” It can be a constant question among team members.

4. Give good news. Usually, people want to complete work rather than fulfill roles. There isn’t much to say about one’s role. Plenty to share about one’s work. Create opportunities for people to comfortably share good news about the work they do. (Bulletin board, email news, luncheon discussions, for example.

5. Use a constructive question. Have your team adopt a specific question that does two things: draw attention to the team’s purpose and encourage communication. The question can be an icebreaker in team meetings, a common follow-up to “Hi! How are you?” in the hallways, a regular item in team reports. Sample questions: What progress have we made? What have we done that we are proud of? What obstacles have we overcome?

The 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star game, which was won by the American League, featured several oddities. Most obvious was the fact that Los Angeles outfielder Mike Trout became the only player to be named All-Star Game MVP for two consecutive seasons.

The other first time it happened concerned the second baseman chosen to start in each league. In the Junior Circuit the honor went to Robinson Cano of Seattle, and in the National League Dee Gordon of Miami received the most votes.

Both Cano and Gordon are the sons of major leaguers, but their heritage is different than most descendants who follow their parents into baseball. Both of these second basemen had parents (José Cano and Tom Gordon) who were pitchers, a fact that makes the tandem the first All-Stars chosen at the same position in the same year whose parents spent their careers on the mound.

To further illustrate the importance of the situation, consider how few second-generation major league position players had parents who were pitchers. Active players, aside from the aforementioned All-Star second basemen, include Adam and Andy Laroche, corner infielders whose father, Dave, pitched for the Detroit Tigers.

Also active are Pittsburgh’s Neal Walker, son of pitcher Tom Walker, and Oakland’s Ike Davis, son of reliever Ron Davis. Boston first baseman Travis Shaw is the son of Cincinnati Reds All-Star closer Jeff Shaw.

In some cases, the father and son form not only a bond, but also a battery. Pablo Torrealba was a catcher and his father Steve was a pitcher. Darren Daulton, whose father Tom was a pitcher, was an All-Star backup and won a pennant with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Here are ten of the best-known position players whose parents made it to the big leagues as a pitcher.

neikro spear

The outfielder and first baseman, who played five years in the majors, was the son of All-Star pitcher Joe Neikro and the nephew of Hall of Fame Cy Young winner Gaylord Perry.

david followed

A first baseman who had a long career with the Cleveland Indians and Baltimore Orioles, David was the son of reliever Diego Segui of the Seattle Pilots and several other clubs.

Charlie Beamon Jr.

This former Seattle and Toronto first baseman is the son of the namesake pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles.

david howard

This once-utility man, whose father Bruce had been a major league pitcher, played for both Missouri teams.

Tom Heitzelman

This infielder from St. Louis and San Francisco had a much shorter career than his father Ken, who spent thirteen years as a major league pitcher.

jeff kunkell

This 1980s Texas Rangers infielder is the son of Bill, who pitched in the majors in the 1950s.

Vance’s Law

Primarily a third baseman for the Cubs, Vance is the son of veteran Pittsburgh pitcher Vernon Law.

jerry martin

Barney Martin was a pitcher, so it’s a little surprising that his son grew up to be among the league leaders in home runs as a Cub in 1980.

justin sellers

This Pittsburgh infielder’s father, Jeff, was a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox.

Ed Sprague Jr.

The Toronto third baseman shares his name with his father, a pitcher for the Reds, Cardinals, A’s and Brewers.

When we quote development jobs for potential clients, we are often asked to develop a search engine optimized website. This usually leads me into a lengthy explanation of how developing a website to be search engine friendly is not the same as optimizing that website for search performance. Kind of like building a car is not the same as preparing it to compete in the Indy 500. Those are two completely different tasks.

Let me explain.

The SEO provider or consultant should be involved in the website development process, although those two roles are completely different. The developer designs and creates the front and back of the website. A good developer can do that job well, but they mainly do it to work for the user, not the search engines. SEO should be involved to ensure that what the developer produces is as search engine friendly as possible.

Most web design and development companies don’t know anything about SEO or building SE friendly websites. And most of those who claim to be are liars. I’m sorry, but that’s the way it is.

Tip: If your web developer says they will SEO your website for you as part of the one-time design fee, they are lying. If they tell you that they will develop a search engine friendly or SEO ready site, then they are more likely to know what they are talking about.

Let me be clear: Design or program a search engine optimized website simply cannot be done. Design or program a search engine friendly can website.

Design/development and SEO are two completely different things, although closely related. Each one, however, requires a completely different set of skills. Most SEOs don’t claim to be web developers (although some are), but interestingly enough, many web designers claim to be SEO capable (although most cannot).

The SEO process requires hours of additional research and a skill set that is not usually included as part of a site development contract. There are some development companies that also specialize in SEO and Marketing and these companies can develop and participate in long-term optimization services. But be aware that any short-term website development contract that claims to include SEO simply will not provide adequate or successful SEO marketing results.

It’s very smart to find a web developer who can create a search engine friendly website, but be aware of claims that SEO services are included. It’s even smart to find an SEO who will work with your web developer to create a search engine friendly website fully compatible with your optimization processes. This saves the SEO from having to request numerous costly site development changes to start a successful SEO campaign.

Football season is upon us, and if you’re a fan, you’re already freaking out. You are looking at the lists; You are analyzing the performances that you have seen with the pre-season games. If you are someone looking to make money betting on games, you are already looking at the start of the season and how to make better soccer teams. If you really want to rise to the top, quit your job, and rely solely on an income with sports disabilities, you need to start learning some quick tips to get you going. Remember, without serious thoughts and ideas, you cannot fully earn money. Consider the following ideas to help you determine the qualities needed to make serious money. You will win big, if you focus on the following tips, that’s for sure.

The first major piece of advice may not seem obvious, but if you subscribe to the idea that the NFL is in the business of making money, then you better take a close look at which jersey is selling the most right now. There are some big sales with jerseys, and they are from players who are getting a lot of media attention. This can have two problems, either the player chokes and you lose, or the player rises to the occasion and creates an increasingly miraculous countdown for the sports networks to show. For example, consider Tim Tebow and his career as quarterback for the Denver Broncos. He wasn’t supposed to get very far, but he led a failing team to the playoffs and then took out one of the biggest players in the league on his way to selling more jerseys than any other player. Imagine if you took the aforementioned suggestion and bet on the miracle worker in Denver, he would have a reserve of money because no one bet money against Big Ben in that playoff game, right? Think about it.

Sales aren’t always the best football picks, but it’s something a smart player will watch. It’s when you stop looking at all the factions of the soccer “business” that your losing streaks begin. If you’re going to make better decisions, you need to step up and look at the variables that others simply ignore. Even if you’ve been using a foolproof system in the past, consider adding more to the notes you have. Keep a close eye on how changes in media attention influence game outcomes and bet wisely, especially in games where the odds just don’t add up.

Who is Kali?

Kali is a form of the Divine Mother in Her proudest attributes. The purpose of this vicious form of Shakti is to show her absolute supremacy over evil, that is, over the attachment of matter (ego) to matter. She was created by Goddess Durga as a form of Supreme Goddess, an invisible aspect of God masked at a certain time in the history of Creation, but has always remained black (masked). Divine Mother is the basic concept of Shaktism, which is a Hindu denomination that recognizes the Feminine Principle as the Supreme Rule of the universe.

Kali is depicted with garlands of human skulls and dismembered body parts, often giving the mistaken impression that she is an evil form of God. Ideas, beliefs, and history can also be easily distorted. Does this mean that Christians are racist just because Ku Klux Klansmen bow to their cross? Any god can be strangled with the same fiery cloak within whose fumes only superstitions and misconceptions can prevail.

Destruction of time and matter.

The crucifix represents the victory of Christ over death (matter). Kali with skulls gives us the same message. The dismembered parts of human bodies in his hands only symbolize the transience of the material world. It is our ego that is always attached to the material world and the fierce representations of Kali simply show the importance of the destruction of the ego’s attachment to the body (matter-to-matter dependency), not death. She destroys What Is Not – unreality.

The perception of Kali was also distorted in India by various cults; one of them was the so-called “thugee” cult, whose origins can be traced back to seven Muslim tribes. No one knows when the cult began, but the first authenticated record originates from around AD 1356. Some historians say that although “thugs” did exist, British colonists blew up this story for the purpose of justifying the executions of their adversaries. Kali in the thugee cult supposedly bore a strong resemblance to the Muslim Fatima, the youngest daughter of the greatest Islamic prophet. This information comes from British officers who discovered this during their interrogations and executions. There are Islamic sects that worship Fatima, the beloved daughter of the Prophet.

The distortion also comes from superstitions and the way they are presented in the Western media: a man in Nepal, for example, cut off his hand and dedicated it to Kali. Something similar also happens every year in the Philippines when “followers of Christ” are publicly crucified before the eyes of thousands of followers and visitors. The effects of crucifixion, in which a “Christ” is whipped until his skin and flesh hangs in pieces, can easily result in serious health problems or even death, but the Western media portray such “Christs as “and to Christianity in two separate sleeves only. . On the other hand, if there is any link to something bad in relation to Kali or any other Hindu god, the media almost always associates Hinduism with it. Islam is also no exception.

The Inquisition of medieval Europe (under the supreme power of Christians) used practices of the most unthinkable forms of torment: pouring red-hot lead into the vagina with other sadistic “exercises”. However, some say that much of the above we believe to be based on myth alone and none of us, not even today’s best historians, have ever dealt with the Inquisition or thugs first hand.

A very important aspect of Kali worship is Kali Puja, the Night of Kali. It occurs at night (in the lunar calendar) when the veil between light and darkness is thinnest: the dark moon.

Matter and light also disappear into black holes, which are observable astronomical locations in the universe where everything dissolves into nothing. The seventh chapter of Devimahatmya (Devi Mahatmya, also known as Durga Saptashati, or “Glory of the Goddess”, is a Hindu scripture) describes Kali springing from Goddess Durga’s scowl.

Kali, clad in tiger skin, is black, sometimes dark blue. His possessions are covered in skulls; temples and personal things too. Accepting its blackness and skull-like omnipresence means that we earthlings living in duality must unconditionally subordinate ourselves to the Unity of God.

A famous Bengali mystic and poet, Ramprasad Sen (1720-1781), wrote magnificent poems showing zealous devotion to Kali. Another famous follower of Kali was Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa.

Kali goes by many names like Maha Kali (or Kaali), Nitya Kali, Smashana Kali, Raksha Kali, Kalikamata, Kalaratri, Vyaghracharmavrita (wearing tiger skin), Elamma or Kottavei (Tamil). She is depicted with eight arms, but also with two or four arms, of which the last is the most common. Of the Puranas, the Kalika Purana (Upapurana) is the most important work for the worship of Kalika (Kali).

Kali also has Her “ghost sisters” in many ancient cultures around the world; for example, in Mexico, there is an ancient Aztec goddess, a “monstrous goddess” – Coatlicue, who is decorated with a necklace made of human hearts and dismembered hands. This may also explain why Aztec and Inca priests were encouraged to practice such notoriously cruel religious ceremonies: they seemed to have misinterpreted a visual representation of God that ancient history had handed down to them. Kali can also be observed in Caledonian, which is a Latin word that the Roman Empire used for the northern part of Great Britain because of their ancient Caledonian tribe who worshiped a black Mother Goddess – Caillech. A Finnish goddess of death, Kalma, supposedly lives in the underworld. In Slavic mythology, we have Nav, the fearsome goddess of death, but also Chernobog, a black god (goddess).

Kali, if approached with love and open arms, promises unconditional love to His devotees, regardless of their race or sexual orientation. She doesn’t care about her social status either. Her blackness is the power that absorbs everything, that is, all dualities will cease. She is beyond time. Kali is therefore ONE and She wants to keep it that way.

The ultimate truth is that if you want to get close to things you can’t normally see, the sunniest daylight in a hypocritically happy and smiling world isn’t always the right passageway to the secret castles of wisdom.


Terry Francona has announced that Jon Lester will be the opening day starter for the Boston Red Sox this year. It seems that his story just keeps getting better and better. Just a few years ago, Red Sox Nation wondered if Lester could pitch again while he battled cancer. Even after his return, there was doubt as to how effective he would be, but he silenced the doubters immediately. Since his return, he has been completely dominant and has finally earned his way to being called the “Ace” of the Red Sox. This was no easy task as the Red Sox have four pitchers who would be opening day starters for just about any other team in baseball.

Lester’s story reads like something out of a storybook, and that story just keeps getting better. He made his first start for the Red Sox after battling cancer against the Cleveland Indians in 2007. His parents were in the stands and the Fenway faithful rallied behind him. This game is one that I remember more than any regular season game in all of history because it seemed unreal. He was incredible and won 6-2. That same year, he started game four (which turned out to be the final game) of the World Series against Colorado and allowed no runs in 5.2 innings.

It seems like the story can’t get any better, but it does. In May of the 2008 season, he pitched the 18th no-hitter in Red Sox history. Last season was so good that he was in the running for the AL Cy Young Award with a 19-9 record and a 3.25 ERA. He certainly has deserved the title of “ace”, and I’m sure there are many more poignant moments to come.

This season I predict he’ll win 21 games and be in the Cy Young race once again. He should be the Red Sox’s ace during the playoffs, and if the Red Sox go far in the playoffs it will be because he played a key role.
