Ositadimma "Osi" Umenyiora is an English sports pundit and former American Football defensive end who played in the National Football League. He played college football for Troy University and was drafted by the New York Giants in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft. Umenyiora was a two-time Pro Bowl selection and holds the Giants franchise record for most sacks in one game, he is one of five British-born players to have won a Super Bowl, joining Marvin Allen, Scott McCready, former Giants teammate Lawrence Tynes and Jay Ajayi. Umenyiora was born in London to Nigerian parents, he is of Igbo descent. His full first name means in Igbo "from today on, things will be good". Umenyiora's family moved from London to Nigeria. At fourteen years old, Umenyiora moved to Auburn, Alabama to live with his sister and pursue a better education. Umenyiora played only two years of high school football at Auburn High School where he was sixteen years old as a senior. Umenyiora was high school friends and teammates with fellow future NFL defensive lineman DeMarcus Ware.
Umenyiora played college football for the Troy State Trojans, the only program to offer him an athletic scholarship. At Troy, Umenyiora was moved from nose guard to defensive end. In 2002, he set school records in tackles for sacks in a single game, he finished the 2002 season with 15 sacks, the second-most in NCAA Division I. He was inducted into the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame in 2014. Despite not being invited to the 2003 NFL Draft Combine, Umenyiora was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the New York Giants out of Troy University. Umenyiora established himself as a premier pass rusher in his first year as a starter, his stellar play earned a trip to the Pro Bowl. Umenyiora achieved 14.5 sacks and 70 tackles, second only to the sixteen sacks obtained by Derrick Burgess of the Oakland Raiders. On December 23, 2005, the Giants signed Umenyiora to a six-year contract extension for $41 million with $15 million guaranteed. In the fourth game of the 2007 season, Umenyiora set a Giants franchise record by recording six sacks against the Philadelphia Eagles.
At that point in the season, the Giants had 12 sacks. He recorded his first career touchdown on October 21 against the San Francisco 49ers when he sacked Trent Dilfer, forced a fumble, recovered the fumble and ran 75 yards for the score. By the end of the season, Umenyiora's 13 sacks helped the Giants to an NFL regular season-leading 53 sacks; the Giants had a surprise victory in Super Bowl XLII over the New England Patriots, in part because of their strong pass rush performance. Umenyiora had four tackles in that game. During a preseason game against the New York Jets, Umenyiora suffered cartilage damage in his left knee and was required to undergo season-ending surgery; the finding by team physician Dr. Russell Warren was that Umenyiora suffered a torn lateral meniscus. Umenyiora joined ESPN's Monday Night Football crew on October 13, 2008. In week 1 of the 2009 season against the Washington Redskins, Umenyiora recorded his second and final career touchdown on a sack, forced fumble, recovery.
On November 5, 2010, Umenyiora was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month after recording 18 tackles, 7.0 sacks, six forced fumbles in the Giants' four October wins. Umenyiora and teammate Justin Tuck recorded 11.5 sacks for the year, combined for 16 forced fumbles. On July 29, 2011, Umenyiora did not report on the opening day of the Giants' training camp; as a result, the Giants placed him on Reserve/Did Not Report. He reported to camp late the following day. Umenyiora has claimed that general manager Jerry Reese promised to renegotiate his contract after the 2010 season, but failed to do so. Umenyiora began practicing with his teammates on August 15, but after three practices he had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee; the team expected him to miss the season opener against the Washington Redskins on September 11. Umenyiora signed a two-year deal worth $8.55 million with the Atlanta Falcons on March 27, 2013. On August 26, 2015, he retired from professional football as a New York Giant after signing a one-day deal.

OSI is an American progressive rock band formed by Fates Warning guitarist Jim Matheos in 2002. Chroma Key keyboardist and vocalist Kevin Moore is the only other full-time member of the band; the collaboration may be considered a studio project, as its members and contributors write and track most of their material independently and developing tracks long-distance, only coming together at the end of the process for mixing and additional tracking. The band's name is a reference to the Office of Strategic Influence, a short-lived American government agency formed in 2001 to support the War on Terror through propaganda; the band has featured a number of guest musicians on its albums, including Sean Malone, Steven Wilson, "Mikael", Joey Vera and Gavin Harrison. Matheos recruited Moore, Dream Theater's then-drummer Mike Portnoy, Sean Malone to perform on what was planned to be a Matheos solo album. Matheos and Portnoy planned to produce a progressive metal album similar to Matheos' work in Fates Warning, however Moore's impact changed the music's direction and genre, incorporating electronica into the original progressive metal sound.
The band's debut album was released by InsideOut Music in 2003. OSI was intended to be a one-off project, but Matheos and Moore found they both had gaps in their schedules so produced a follow-up. Free was released in 2006, with Portnoy returning to play drums as a session musician rather than a full band member, due to personal and musical differences between him and Moore. Blood was released with Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison replacing Portnoy; the fourth album Fire Make Thunder was released in 2012 by Metal Blade Records, with Harrison once again on drums. Fates Warning guitarist Jim Matheos intended to create a progressive metal supergroup while Fates Warning went on hiatus, he recruited Cynic & Gordian Knot Fretless Bass and Chapman Stickist Sean Malone and then-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy to work on the project. Matheos asked Chroma Key and ex-Dream Theater keyboardist Kevin Moore to contribute by adding keyboard arrangements to the music he had written. Moore instead edited the music, changing the song structures and adding vocals.
Matheos decided to pursue this new direction, sounding closer to Chroma Key than standard progressive metal, over his and Portnoy's original idea. Many vocalists were considered to perform on the album. Daniel Gildenlöw of Pain of Salvation wrote some vocal melodies and lyrics, but Moore performed most of the vocals and wrote most of the lyrics. Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree performed vocals on one track. Cynic and Gordian Knot bassist Sean Malone performed bass, but was credited as a guest musician because his schedule meant he was unable to join Matheos and Portnoy for the basic tracking sessions. Matheos and Portnoy recorded the album at Carriage House Studios in Stamford, Connecticut from June 2 to June 9, 2002. Songs with a strong progressive metal influence were written by Matheos, while Moore had greater influence over the vocal-driven tracks. Portnoy did not take part in the actual writing of the album; the album's recording sessions were the first time Moore and Portnoy collaborated since 1994 in their work in Dream Theater.
In 2009, Portnoy recalled that he found the experience of making the record difficult, that he was frustrated by the lack of collaboration between him and Moore. Differences between Moore and Portnoy led to his return on the follow-up album as a session drummer rather than full-time member. InsideOut Music released Office of Strategic Influence on February 17, 2003. Moore chose the group's name and album's title, referring to the Office of Strategic Influence, established by the US Government after the September 11 attacks to spread propaganda; the album was critically well received. Critics praised the members' musicianship and the fact that the album differed from the members' other projects. Matheos and Moore did not plan to make a second OSI album, returned to their own projects after the first album's completion. In 2005, they both had free schedules, so decided to produce a follow-up album. Joey Vera played bass on the album. Portnoy told Matheos and Moore that he did not want to perform drums on the album, but was persuaded to perform on the album as a session musician.
Free was released on April 24, 2006, receiving positive critical reception. Critics noted that the album was more keyboard-focused than the band's debut. Re:free, an EP featuring remixes of three tracks from Free, was released on October 24, 2006; the band were keen to tour in support of Free. "The reality of it is in order to the way we would like... and present it the way we would want to present it... would cost too much money for the kind of fan base that we have right now," Matheos said in 2009. In 2010 he anticipated that OSI will "remain a studio band."In September 2008, Moore posted an update on the Chroma Key website, stating that he and Matheos had been working on a third OSI album for several months. Portnoy was replaced by Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison and Matheos played bass on the album. Opeth vocalist and guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt and No-Man vocalist Tim Bowness wrote lyrics and sang on one track each. Blood was May 19 in North America; the album received positive reviews: Andrew Reilly of Madeloud said that "with Blood the two have found the stylistic fusion their first two discs hinted at", praised Harrison's drumming
Oblates of St. Joseph
The Oblates of St. Joseph is a Catholic religious institute founded on 14 March 1878 by St. Joseph Marello; the institute has provinces or delegations in Italy, the Philippines, the United States, México, Perú, Bolivia, India and Nigeria. The congregation has members present in Australia and Indonesia. Professed members of the Oblates of St. Joseph use the post-nominal letters "O. S. J." which corresponds to the Latin title of the institute. Joseph Marello's original intent was to found a simple association of men dedicated to a common spirituality, serving the local church in catechesis and assisting local clergy but not publicly professing canonical vows in a religious institute. On March 14, 1878, he opened a house for what he called the "Company of St. Joseph" and invited four candidates to be members. By 1883, the Company had begun accepting candidates for the priesthood along with candidates to be lay brothers; the Company of St. Joseph would become known as the Oblates of St. Joseph. On September 15, 1921, the Oblates of St. Joseph received approval as an international institute of pontifical status.
The principal apostolate of the Oblates of St. Joseph is to work with the poor. However, Joseph Marello's original plan was to have the Oblates serve in whatever capacity the local bishop deemed necessary, so long as it was consistent with the spirituality and life of the Oblates. In the present day, the Oblates serve in many different capacities, depending upon the needs of the bishops where they serve. Common apostolates include education and catechesis of youth, parish ministry, serving the poor and underprivileged, orphanages; the Oblates of St. Joseph are headed by the Superior General and the General Council, composed of four councilors. Geographic regions are organized into Provinces and Delegations, each of, headed by a Provincial or Delegate, respectively; the Superior General and his council serve for a six-year term. Each community has a superior. Oblates of St. Joseph are bound by their Rule to live in community, unless exceptional permission is granted.

Officine Stampaggi Industriali
OSI, acronym for Officine Stampaggi Industriali was a coachbuilding company founded in 1960 in Turin by former Ghia president Luigi Segre and Arrigo Olivetti from the Fergat company, a manufacturer of automotive components. OSI was intended to be an independent design branch of Ghia's, focussing on niche efforts; the short lived company made some custom built cars based on Alfa Romeo and Ford models. One of their first contracts was to build the bodyshells of the 1960 Innocenti 950 Spider, designed by a young Tom Tjaarda at Ghia's behest, its best known model outside Italy was the Ford 20M TS Coupé based on the German Ford Taunus 20M. The car was designed by Sergio Sartorelli, better known as the designer of the Type 3 based Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34. 2,200 of the Ford 20M based coupés were produced, of which 200 were thought to have survived through till 2010. The company built the Ford Anglia Torino designed by Giovanni Michelotti: 10,007 examples of this model were sold in Italy. Segre died after complications following appendicitis in 1963, leaving the rising company without its personal link to Ghia and Ford.
He was replaced by Giacomo Bianco of Fergat, but Bianco was unable to keep the company afloat as contracts began to dry up. In 1966 2,000 employees had to be laid off, OSI car production ended in December 1967. Bianco was fired and Sartorelli was charged with winding down operations, incorporating the OSI design office with that of Fiat's in May 1968; the company remained active as a producer of industrial equipment. 1966 O.

Ohio Scientific Inc. was an Ohio-based computer company that built and marketed microcomputers from 1975 to 1981. Their best-known products were the Challenger series of microcomputers, but they sold a variety of computer kits, single-board computers and various peripherals. One of their first products, launched in 1977, was the OSI Model 500 system, a simple single board computer based on the MOS Technology 6502 microprocessor, it needed an external computer terminal such as the VT100, Hazeltine 1420, or the CT-64 terminal system from SWTPC, as it lacked an internal video controller. The Challenger III, introduced in August 1977, had a maximum of 53KB of static RAM and used 8" 370k byte floppy disks in its dual floppy drive system, it was sold in an optional 4' high 19" rack mount cabinet with wheels, version C3-B, that included a hard drive. This was intended for an office environment and used a standard computer terminal, like the Hazeltine 1420, optionally supplied through factory sales.
The terminals were the same ones as used with mainframe computers of that era. With the largest hard drive available, 74MB, the system cost just under $13,000; the least expensive version without the rack or hard drive was $3995 MSRP, a phenomenal performance-to-cost ratio for the time. The Challenger III had the capability to support non-floppy or hard drive Challenger 2P computers through a simple network using RS-232 links. OSI's products were 6502-based, the Superboard II, Challenger 1P, Challenger 2P, Challenger 4P and Challenger 8P, introduced in 1979 and discontinued in 1981. Original Ohio Scientific motherboard. Instead of using a floppy disk controller IC, OSI used a Motorola MC6850 ACIA Serial Port ACIA chip and a Motorola MC6821 chip for the Disk Drive Controller, which made OSI 8" & 5-1/4" Floppy Disks unreadable by other computer systems; the Superboard II was the least expensive computer, retailing for around the $279 price range, with an onboard BASIC programming language. It came without a power supply.
It was a single board computer with the keyboard integrated on the same printed circuit board. It was shipped with 4KB of RAM, a 2KB BIOS in ROM and an early version of Microsoft 8K BASIC. OSI 6502 BASIC Version 1.0 Revision 3.2 1977 By Microsoft. The version OSI C1P / 600D Superboard II featured an unpopulated socket for an extra 1k × 4-bits of video RAM to hold character color information; the implementation of this was detailed in the OSI user group newsletter, published around four times a year. The 600D featured two video modes: 32×32 for'graphics', or 64×16 for text where each text line had a blank line between it and the next; the mode could be selected by a poke to the keyboard register. The computer couldn't write to the video memory without glitching the display. There was an add-on graphics card for the Superboard, it came with software to draw 3D graphics. The keyboard polling register was used as a crude digital-to-analog converter by means of a resistor ladder connected to an'audio out' socket to the right of the keyboard.
Unusual for the day, but reflecting the home built nature of personal computers of this era, the company supplied full crude schematics of their hardware. This allowed the Computer Hobbyist or 3rd-party companies to create after-market field modifications, such as increased clock speed, increasing the cassette tape drive storage speed, increased video line length, as well as reverse video; the C2P video systems did not have color graphics like the Apple II, just upper- and lower-case text, some pseudo graphical characters, for drawing lines and supporting simple games. The Challenger 4P came with color display output capability, using a TV or TV converted to have direct video input, dual 5-1/4" floppy drives, it had the ability to connect to external sensors or control external components, through a programmable I/O section mounted on the back. This was a feature. Software was minimal for the non-disk drive versions of the C1P, C2P, Superboard II, they used cassette tapes to load and store programs.
Disk-based systems included a bare-bones "Disk Operating System", much handier than using compact cassettes at 1200 baud. Due to the popularity of a UK clone of the Superboard computer called the UK101, the bugs in the BASIC ROMs were fixed, at least two third-party companies produced their own version of the OS. One version was called'CEGMON', the other was'WEMON' produced by Watford Electronics in the UK. Both featured full screen editing, Named cassette file handling and a Improved machine code monitor; the OSI Challenger III had three processors: a 6502, a 6800, a Z80. These were software switchable; because it had a Z80, the Challenger III could run CP/M, but it booted up in 6502 mode, the bootstrap would switch processors. The operating systems which ran on the CIII were OSI CP/M, OS-65D, OS-65U. All three operating systems, at least in the versions, had directories with file names. OSI/CPM had an assembler, FORTRAN and COBOL compiler, but to make a copy of the CP/M, one had to boot in OS-65D to copy
