Alternately intriguing and distressing article in today's New York Times on the rise of Hispanic Pentecostalism. The article states: One in ten New Yorkers is now a Pentecostal, one in three New York Pentecostals are Hispanic. NYC Pentecostalism has grown 45% in the last decade.

The accompanying picture is of a former Catholic who was impressed by "the unity and passion" that she witnessed at a relative's wake. " . . .she said, she practiced the sort of once-a-week Catholicism that was more habit than conviction. 'You can sit next to me, and when the service is over you don’t even know my name,” she said. “You don’t ask, ‘How are you?’ It’s foom, and you’re out.'"

She joined a tiny Pentecostal storefront. The pastor and lay leaders would have understood because they are all lapsed Catholics too.

"Here, in cramped storefronts like Ark of Salvation, people whose lives are as marginal as their neighborhoods discover a joyful intimacy often lacking in big churches. They find help — with the rent, child care or finding a job. As immigrants, they find their own language and music, as well as the acceptance and recognition that often elude them on the outside.

They find the discipline and drive to make a hard life livable.

To spend a year with this congregation is to see a teenage single mother and party girl discover the strength to go to college, marry in the church and land a job. It is to see a former political radical and brawler pray over alcoholics in the park."

Be sure and take a look at the multi-media that accompanies the article on the left, including an interesting map showing the distribution of Pentecostals from state to state.

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.
