13 October was the 13th day of the fourth month of the 2nd year of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

13 October 2007

The Canadian Press - Ottawa and Alta First Nation sign agreement-in-principle on $300M land claim (12 October 2007) Alberta's Bigstone Cree Nation and surrounding communities have signed an agreement-in-principle with the provincial and federal governments that would entitle them to the largest land claim settlement in Canadian history. The settlement includes almost C$300 million and almost 570 square kilometres of land. 'What happened today was a great day for the Bigstone Cree Nation,' said Chief Francis Gladue after the signing ceremony. Under the agreement, Ottawa would put in C$236.5 million for treaty obligations and other costs such as environmental assessments. The funds will include C$59 million to improve housing and infrastructure, including a new high school. The agreement also ensures that First Nations people living in the region have full control over its resources. The agreement has to be ratified by a majority of the approximately 7,000 Bigstone members eligible to vote.

From an Edmonton Journal report on this: Alberta will contribute 56,658 hectares of land, C$28 million in compensation, two schools valued at C$25 million, and water treatment plants worth about C$10 million. Before a final agreement on the settlement can be reached, the parties must first make a final selection on the land.

The Globe and Mail - Nothing fazing markets this October (12 October 2007) Nothing seems to faze the equity markets these days. They are quick to rally on the flimsiest of favourable news and eager to discount any signs of trouble. It's as if the August meltdown never happened. Could it be that investors are stirring happy pills into their morning coffee? Just about every market around the world is on an upward march, having generally shrugged off concerns about credit problems and economic risks. Even the volatility that marked trading just weeks ago has been on the wane. The only conclusion to draw from this is that fear is leaving the building.

The Canadian Press - Council urges B.C. government to jump into green technology (12 October 2007) The Premier's Technology Council is urging the British Columbia government to take advantage of the worldwide demand for clean, green products and services. Council co-chair Greg Peet says the council believes demand for such technology can be leveraged to generate growth in a sector where B.C. has tremendous resources and building expertise. The council focused on clean technology, innovation, commercialization, and technology in learning. Among the council's recommendations are expanding the government's commitment to energy self-sufficiency, and expanding immigration to attract and train the talent needed to build B.C.'s knowledge economy. The council also calls for the introduction of a 'school of the future' equipped with advanced learning processes to best use technology.

The Toronto Star - Public schools embracing faith-based lessons (12 October 2007) In a bid to help children in Canada's most diverse metropolis understand a bit more about each other's religion, public schools in Greater Toronto are putting God back into the classroom so children can learn about how their classmates worship. When Jim Grieve, director of education, joined the Peel District School Board board in 2003, he noticed a reluctance among principals to celebrate—even mention—Christmas. He encouraged them to not only mark that Christian holiday, but also Ramadan, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. The Peel board has even developed 'Faith Forward', with the help of local religious leaders. 'Faith Forward' is a resource guide for educators on the history, beliefs and scriptures of 17 world religions—all of them represented in Peel schools. 'We were very much aware that if we were going to do a good job with an increasingly diverse population, that we had to pay attention to all that goes into helping a child become who they are,' said Grieve.

The Vancouver Sun - Canadian scientists sharing Nobel prize (13 October 2007) 'It's unbelievable how climate change has risen to the top of the policy agenda ... ,' said John Robinson, a professor at University of British Columbia's Institute of Resources, Environment, and Sustainability. He is one of thousands of scientists in more than 100 countries, including about two dozen in Canada, who contributed to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with former US vice-president Al Gore. The panel uses scientific reports and data to explore climate change and ways to fight it. The IPCC has been releasing regular reports on the state of climate change since it was established by the United Nations in 1988.

From a Victoria Times Colonist report on this: The panel unequivocally recognizes that climate change is human caused, said Werner Kurtz, senior research scientist with the Canadian Forest Service, who has been lead co-author on five IPCC reports. 'The reason the IPCC was formed was to build a strong scientific consensus so policy makers can draw on it,' Kurtz said. Fundamental shifts away from consumption of fossil fuels are needed, said Andrew Weaver, Canada research chair in climate modelling and analysis at the University of Victoria, and lead author on three IPCC reports. IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri of India said the panel's strength lies in combining rigorous scientific assessment with the scrutiny of government representatives. 'There is no other body in the world that is able to meet these twin objectives simultaneously,' he said.

The Toronto Star on the growing demand for Vastu houses (13 October 2007) Toronto businessman Avinash Bhagat says he hasn't looked back ever since he moved into his new house in the city's west end. The entrepreneur says much of the credit for his flourishing business and smooth family life can be attributed to good luck derived from his new vastu-efficient house. Vastu houses observe the principles of vastu—an ancient methodology involving elements of architecture and design that states one can align a house to nature's five elements to create physical, spiritual, and mental well-being. Vastu houses, especially those that are built from ground up, deploy mathematical calculations believed to maximize the flow of good energy into the house. 'I move around with a compass all the time ... ,' Toronto real estate agent P.K. Sabharwal says. 'It's a growing demand and has spread all over the U.S. as well,' says Sabharwal, now in the process of shortlisting properties for a group of investors wanting to build vastu houses in the Greater Toronto Area.

Vaastu shastra, or vastu, as it is more commonly known, is the ancient Indian system of architecture that involves designing a home or a building in a manner that aligns it with nature's five elements—earth, water, air, fire, and space. The result is meant to enhance residents' well-being. Originating during the ancient Vedic civilization, it forms a part of the Vedas—sacred scriptures. The word vastu originates from vasthu, meaning created space or premise. Shastra means science or body of knowledge. Vastu followers believe nature's five elements radiate solar, lunar, and magnetic energy. As the sun moves from east to west, the planet's magnetic energy and solar energy act in different directions. Both these energies are in harmony with, or hostile to, one another, according to vastu. Houses designed with vastu in mind can draw upon the benefits of these energies when the same are in harmony.

These are a few of the news reports reflecting Canada's rising invincibility from the growing Yogic Flying groups across Canada and the Invincible America Assembly at Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City, USA.
