Weekly Newsletter July 17th 2015

This week's newsletter has interesting articles, two cancellations and the relocation of the Sri Chinmoy event on July 26th to New Farm Park.

Note that this is the first newsletter for two weeks; I wasn't able to get one out last week due to a combination of work overload plus going to Christchurch in New Zealand with the family for a holiday.
