Gloria is the 11 year old cancer patient from a devout Catholic family whose progress is being extensively covered by the Seattle Times. I've blogged about Gloria twice before here on ID.

Three weeks ago, Gloria started walking again and had a wonderful two week reprieve but last week, her pain become unmanageable, and she was put into a drug-induced coma from which she is being weaned today.

The family's support community is huge and they will be praying all night in a Eucharistic Chapel for Gloria and her family. The Times reporter who is following all of this is blogging regularly and has been clearly moved by it all.

"Gloria is such an amazing little girl. Following the family's story has redefined how I view journalism. Getting to know Gloria these past few months has made me a better writer, better reporter and a better person.

I hope I will have a chance to tell her that."


and

"On Saturday, her parents placed a crucifix on Gloria's chest, and I couldn't stop looking at it. As the respirator filled her body with air, the crucifix would rise along with Gloria's chest. That image stays with me. The message of why she's suffering was right there, obvious with every breath.

Then I looked at a dry-eraser board in her room. It reads, "We're Here To Glorify God Through God."


Read the updates here and pray for Gloria and her tough, loving, profoundly faith-filled family.

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
