The Rosary Path at Marylake has made great
strides this past month. We now have the foundation piers in place to accept the
18’Crucifix. The Beautiful Bronze 11’ Corpus arrived from the foundry on August
5th and will be mounted to a stainless steel Cross. Then, delivered and
installed on the Piers on a 20 degree angle. The Crucifix will be
Dedicated/Blessed in late September or early October this year. Many other
expenditures are required to establish this Rosary and Pathway for initial use
starting this fall. Also, the first five Beads are in place on the Chapel Hill.
And thirty Beads in the upper field. We have installed a work tent and
facilities for the work people and have fenced off the entire construction
area…..for your safety. The Chapel Hill roadway is almost complete. A separate

Delhi -- India is accelerating efforts to
bolster its naval capabilities, wary of China's
growing influence in the South China Sea and Indian
A top naval official told the media that India plans
to expand its navy by roughly 40%, from 137 vessels
to about 200, by 2027. It will increase active
aircraft carriers from two to three and submarines
from 13 to at least 20, a naval source told The
suitable areas include irrigated lowlands, where
rainfall is insufficient to sustain rice production.
Present day conventional method of rice cultivation
utilises 5,000 litres of water for producing one kg
of rice than its actual requirement of 3,000 litres.
About 2,000 litres is lost due to flooding and
seepage losses. Further, decline in water table
necessitates the need for improved water-use
efficiency and water productivity in agriculture,
particularly in rice cultivation.
Thus, the newly upcoming approach of rice
cultivation called aerobic rice cultivation reduces
water use in rice production and increases the water
use efficiency. In simple words, growing rice plant

Lists 15 Things That Should Never Happen in a
Canadian Hospital September 19, 2015 By Nick
on the wrong body part. Foreign objects left in
patients after surgery. The wrong blood type given
to a patient.
These things should never happen in Canada, but they
do. And a new report aims to shine a light on them
so they happen less often.
Health Quality Ontario, with input from the Atlantic
Health Quality and Patient Safety Collaborative, the
British Columbia Patient Safety and Quality Council,
and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, Friday
released a report called Never Events for Hospital
Care in Canada. The document aims to bring attention
to gaffes that can be prevented using using
organizational checks and balances.
Re: “Private surgery is troubling,” editorial,
Your editorial perpetuates the debilitating myth
that we enjoy one of the best health-care systems in
the world relative to dollars spent. Although we
spend about 12 per cent of GDP on health, our
outcomes are often mediocre.
