(Obama had acknowledged using drugs when he was younger, describing it as a mistake.) "It'll be, 'When was the last time? Did you ever give drugs to anyone? Did you sell them to anyone?'" he said.

Adi Shankara was an Indian philosopher who consolidated the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta, a sub-school of Vedanta. His teachings are based on the unity of the soul and Brahman, in which Brahman is viewed as without attributes. He hailed from Kalady of present day Kerala.Shankara travelled across India and other parts of South Asia to propagate his philosophy through discourses and debates with other thinkers. He founded four mathas, which helped in the historical development, revival and spread of Advaita Vedanta. Adi Shankara is believed to be the organizer of the Dashanami monastic order and the founder of the Shanmata tradition of worship.His works in Sanskrit, all of which are extant today, concern themselves with establishing the doctrine of Advaita. He also established the importance of monastic life as sanctioned in the Upanishads and Brahma Sutra, in a time when the Mimamsa school established strict ritualism and ridiculed monasticism. Shankara relied entirely on the Upanishads for reference concerning Brahman and wrote copious commentaries on the Vedic Canon in support of his thesis. The main opponent in his work is the Mimamsa school of thought, though he also offers some arguments against the views of some other schools like Samkhya and certain schools of Buddhism that he was familiar with.

Tenjin Shin'y -ry , literally meaning "Divine True Willow School", can be classified as a traditional school (kory ) of jujutsu. It was founded by Iso Mataemon Minamoto no Masatari in the 1830s. Once a very popular jujutsu system in Japan, among the famous students who studied the art were Kano Jigoro, whose modern art of judo was greatly inspired by the Tenjin Shin'y -ry , and Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of aikido.Essentially, Tenjin Shinyo-ryu is the amalgamation of two separate systems of jujutsu: the Y shin-ry and Shin no Shinto-ryu. The distinctive feature of this particular school is the use of atemi or strikes to disrupt the balance of the opponent as well as a more flexible and flowing movement of the body than seen in some older schools of jujutsu.
