Just Matata by Braz Menezes of Toronto is an
autobiographical novel that blends an impressive mix

its fictional structure, plot or conflict. Instead,

Ban likely on
ore exports from Goa Posted: 13 Nov 2011 |
From: Goa Blog
Shah Commission report on illegal mining is likely
to recommend a ban on iron ore exports from Goa due
to flagrant violations and also name a few
politicians for their alleged involvement in the
activity, sources said.
“The report will be ready in 3-4 days and will be in
public domain soon,” a commission source in
Ahmedabad said. The much-awaited conclusion to the
probe into illegal mining, which has kicked off much
heat and dust, will be submitted to the union
ministry of mines soon.
Another huge corruption scandal is looming in India
over its mining industry. Exports of iron ore
have been stopped in the state of Karnataka, amid
allegations that corrupt officials allowed
widespread illegal mining. A government inquiry is
looking into claims of even more serious violations
by iron ore producers in the tourist paradise of Goa.

Season Causes "Bridal Remorse" Among Young Married
One-third of newlyweds
say they wish they'd spent less on their wedding
Toronto, Nov. 8, 2011 /CNW/
- Post-wedding season has arrived and the
harsh financial reality of planning and paying for a
wedding has set in for young married Canadians.
According to new research commissioned by eBay
Canada, newlyweds aged 18 to 34 are experiencing
"bridal remorse," wishing they'd spent less on their
wedding day. And who can blame them? After the
florist, caterer, and venue have been booked,
newlyweds are left with a whopping wedding bill.
Canadian seniors at risk of becoming helpless in
their own homes
Toronto, Nov. 8, 2011 /Cnw/
- Canadians in their 70s and 80s today
are capable, self-sufficient and want to continue
living in their own homes. However, the vast
majority have a mistaken understanding about how to
access help in the case of a medical emergency and
four in ten are unaware falls are the most common
cause of injuries among seniors in Canada, reveals
the Lifeline Report on Aging in Canada released
today by Philips Lifeline.
People who have their teeth scraped and cleaned had
lowered their heart attack and stroke risk by 24 and
13 per cent respectively, compared to those who
never had a dental cleaning. These findings are
based on a Taiwanese study of a database of more
than 100,000 people who underwent dental cleaning
and were followed for an average of seven years.
Scientists considered tooth scaling frequent if it
occurred at least twice or more in two years;
occasional tooth scaling was once or less in two
