Weekend of Mickey, Marathons, and Medals," says the Disney Marathon website. Surely the "s" at the end of Marathon is a typo, as only one marathon took place over the weekend. Quite a few Rhode Islanders ran one of the Disney events (60 completed the full, and 85 completed the half). Not as many completed the "Goofy Challenge" in which the competitor runs the half on Saturday and follows up by running the full on Sunday. It's goofy alright. (Perhaps the goofiest part is the $350 entry fee to do the double.) The NRA was well represented with Dr. Murray Norcross representing 3rd Rhode Islander in 3:20:38, followed by Ken Abrams as 4th in 3:30:25. Former NRA member Kelly Henry was 63rd woman overall (out of many thousands) in 3:29:26. NRA's Teresa Eagan and Robert Frary ran the full as well. In the half marathon the NRA was represented by Teresa Eagan, thus being perhaps the first NRA member to complete the Goofy Challenge. If you are an offical NRA member and we've missed you in the Disney results, please let us know. In this week's picture Murray Norcross (right) enjoys a cup of water after the 2010 Newport Pie Run.

A growing number of veterans and service members are using their VA home loan benefit from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The VA's home loan program has continued to be a popular choice in the current housing market.

In Canada the Employment Insurance (EI) provides financial assistance to citizens who have lost their jobs. The working scheme of EI is similar to car insurance while you work you pay premiums to be entitled to benefits. To get EI you need to work for a certain period called qualifying period and you must have lost your employment through no fault of your own. You can start gaining benefits right after you lost your job and the maximum benefit is set at 55% of your insurable earnings. EI is governed by the Employment Insurance Act R.S. 1996 c. 23, and run by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada ().

In Canada there are two main reasons for deportation or removal: if a person has illegally entered Canada or if the person if convicted of a serious offence. The determining factor in the case of deportation is usually the type and the nature of the offence. A foreign national or permanent resident who was already deported from Canada once, can not enter Canadian territory without special ministerial consent.
