24 December was the 24th day of the sixth month of the 2nd year of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

24 December 2007

The Canadian Press - Markets in festive mood (24 December 2007) North American markets moved up on Monday as nearly all sectors logged increases. Toronto's TSX Composite Index rose 98.75 points, or 0.73 per cent, to 13,694.84. Financial stocks led the increases, up 0.92 per cent, after the group of investors working to solve the problems of asset-backed commercial paper in Canada said they'd reached an agreement. That news sent stocks in nearly all the major Canadian banks ahead.

From another Canadian Press report on this: '. . . I think the conditions are falling into place for a better market next year', said John Johnston, chief strategist at The Harbour Group at RBC Dominion Securities.

From a Bloomberg News report on this: Canadian stocks rose for a fourth day on Monday. Materials shares had the second-biggest gain among 10 industry groups in the TSX.

From a CanWest News Service report on this: The materials index posted solid gains, up 1.26 on the session. 'It's kind of a follow-through from Friday, which is good,' said John Kinsey, portfolio manager at Caldwell Securities.

Reuters Canada on Canadian dollar rises for 7th session (24 December 2007) The Canadian dollar rode a wave of positive sentiment to close higher compared to the US dollar for a seventh straight session on Monday, helped by a rally in equities markets and positive news on asset-back commercial paper.

From a CBC News report on this: The Canadian dollar traded at a one-month high on Monday. The loonie [popular name for the Canadian dollar] closed at $1.0152 US—up more than three-quarters of a cent from Friday's close.

From a Bloomberg News report: The Canadian dollar gained against all 16 most-actively traded currencies last week, after reports showed Canada's economy grew more than forecast in October. 'The market is regaining confidence in Canada,' said Steven Butler, director of currency trading at Scotia Capital.

The Vancouver Sun - Geothermal energy could meet half of B.C.'s electricity needs, researcher says (24 December 2007) British Columbia is sitting on a potential gold mine of clean energy in the form of superheated water located deep beneath the Earth's surface, says Mory Ghomshei, a professor of energy resources and systems at the University of British Columbia. Professor Ghomshei says such geothermal energy is so plentiful it could meet much of our future energy needs with virtually no greenhouse gas emissions. What makes BC so promising for geothermal power is its location atop a zone where the Earth's tectonic plates meet. This causes magma to rise towards the surface, heating up any water it touches. The water two to three kilometres down can be anywhere from 200 C to 300 C. But when brought to the surface, it converts into steam, which can be used to power electrical turbines. Geothermal power plants are already in use in Iceland, the US, and the Philippines. Ghomshei said there are enough potential geothermal sites in BC to provide from 3,000 to 5,000 megawatts of constant electricity—enough power to meet roughly half of the province's current energy needs. Once a geothermal plant is up and running, he said, it produces electricity relatively inexpensively.

The Toronto Star - Scholar sole speaker of Huron language (24 December 2007) The world's last Huron-language speaker is a white man teaching at Humber College in Ontario. Anthropologist John Steckley has made the Huron tongue and history his focus for more than 30 years. This month Steckley published an authoritative Huron-English dictionary, the first such volume in more than 250 years. Laval University also just received a C$1 million federal grant to develop Huron-language teaching materials, drawing on Steckley's expertise. The Huron were a mostly agricultural people living between two water bodies now called Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay. Remnants of the tribe settled north of Quebec City at Lorette, and in Kansas and Oklahoma. The language long ago died, except in writing, but all three communities are working to revive it, Steckley says. 'I guess I'm the closest you could say passes for a Huron speaker,' he says in a modest tone. 'I have eight dictionaries of Huron at home, all 17th- and 18th-century, only one of which was ever published.' The volumes are 'beautiful dictionaries, better than any in English at the time—by far', he says. 'They are just amazing documents and they taught me.'

The Canadian Press - Harper says accommodation right approach to immigration (23 December 2007) Prime Minister Harper heaped praise on Canada's record of both accommodating and integrating immigrants. 'I know there's a popularly expressed view that immigrants come here and they should change to suit the country. I think they overwhelmingly do. But I think the fact is our country also consciously changes somewhat for new immigrants and new cultures, and I think that's a successful model,' the Prime Minister said in a year-end interview with The Canadian Press. 'We probably need to have some thought about what the shared values really are, and how we strengthen those, but that said I don't see a culture fragmentation in this country, I just don't see it.' Bruce Anderson, president of Harris-Decima Research, said Harper's approach seems to mirror how Canadians feel about the issue of racial harmony.

The London Free Press on Yoga in schools (24 December 2007) Banting is one of four London (Ontario) high schools adding yoga to their physical education programmes. Medway, Saunders, and Westminster are also taking part. The response has been overwhelming. More than 80 per cent of physical education students have signed up for five optional classes at Banting. Yoga is an ancient Indian tradition fast becoming a trend in many North American schools. Some California schools even have mandatory yoga programs.

The Toronto Star - From sea to sea to sea, a model for the world (24 December 2007) The world is coming to Canada. The country's destiny is to show that Canada can be a model for a world challenged by religious and sectarian friction. Canadians' growing diversity as a people, their huge pool of human talent, is their greatest strength. Almost every aspect of their daily lives has a global dimension. All the serious challenges Canadians face require global co-operation. With clear global vision, Canadians are uniquely positioned to be in the front ranks of a world without borders.

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.
