29 January was the 29th day of the seventh month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
29 January 2007
Reuters Canada - Canada firms improve outlook on orders, output (29 January 2007)
Canadian manufacturers were dramatically more upbeat about the level of new orders in the first quarter of this year compared with the fourth quarter of 2006, according to a poll by Statistics Canada.
Of the firms surveyed, 25 per cent saw new orders rising, up from 10 per cent in the previous quarter. 'This was the largest quarter-to-quarter increase in balance since a 35 point jump in the April 2002 survey,' Statscan said.
The Globe and Mail - Commodity prices surge to new record (29 January 2007)
Bank of Nova Scotia's commodity price index, which measures price trends in 32 of Canada's major exports, jumped 3.4 per cent in December to end 2006 at a record level.
The agricultural index ended 2006 on a high note, up almost 10 per cent from a year earlier as wheat, canola, and barley prices rallied.
Canadian Press - Canadian, Jamaica universities partners in easing Caribbean nursing shortage (27 January 2007)
Nursing students in the Caribbean can pursue their studies via a new distance learning programme—a collaboration between Toronto's Ryerson University and the University of the West Indies' Mona campus in Jamaica. The programme aims to reduce the region's nursing shortage, where thirty-five per cent of nursing positions are unfilled.
'This program leverages educational media to enable the university (UWI) to effectively increase its capacity and provide training to nurses throughout the Caribbean,' said Ryerson chancellor Raymond Chang. Chang, who is Jamaican, donated about C$750,000 to cover the first three years of the programme.
CBC News - David Suzuki to launch national tour as public interest in environment soars (29 January 2007)
David Suzuki, a prominent environmentalist, is launching a national tour to determine what Canadians in 40 communities think about the environment. When the tour is completed, he will take the concerns and ideas he's heard to Ottawa.
Suzuki says the country is at an 'historic moment' of being extremely concerned about environmental issues. 'People of all stripes are lending their support to the tour because the environment isn't a partisan issue,' says Suzuki.
The National Post - Easy being green (29 January 2007)
The environment is the latest buzz word in the boardroom. But Vancity Credit Union in Vancouver, Canada's largest credit union, has granted loans to green projects for years, says Dave Mowat, Vancity's chief executive. This week he spoke about what his organization is doing for the environment and about his recent visit to an environmentalist 'bootcamp' in Nashville run by climate change evangelist Al Gore.
Q. The question for corporations might be whether they can maximize profits and also adopt environmentally friendly policies. Is it fair to say that as a credit union you've had more flexibility on this than a corporation would have?
A. I think that's accurate. But, you know, Vancity's a financial institution with $12.5 billion worth of assets. This place runs like any other business, and there's not a single day when we can't be more efficient. There's an enlightened view of how you make money right now, different from just kind of pillaging as a company and grabbing short-term profitability without looking around to see what your footprint is. I know the word 'sustainability' is overused but ultimately that's the way for a company to make the most money.
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.
