  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Assumption of Mary
Today, the belief in the corporeal assumption of Mary is universal in the East and in the West; according to Benedict XIV (De Festis B.V.M., I, viii, 18) it is a probable opinion, which to deny were impious and blasphemous.
He proves, furthermore, that the Mass of the Gregorian Sacramentary, such as we have it, is of Gallican origin (since the belief in the bodily assumption of Mary, under the influence of the apocryphal writings, is older in Gaul than in Rome), and that it supplanted the old Gelasian Mass.
At Piazza, in Sicily, there is a commemoration of the Assumption of Mary (double second class) the 20th of February, the anniversary of the earthquake of 1743.

 Assumption of Mary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to Roman Catholic theology and the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, the body and soul of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Mary, the mother of Jesus) was taken into Heaven after the end of her earthly life.
The Feast of the Assumption is celebrated on August 15, the same calendar day as the Eastern Orthodox Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos.
The Dormition should not be confused with the Assumption: Eastern Orthodox believe that Mary died, and there is a non-dogmatic tradition that her dead body was later assumed into heaven as a foretaste of the general resurrection.

 EPA: Federal Register: National Toxics Rule: Remand of Water Quality Criteria for Dioxin and Pentachlorophenol to EPA ...
EPA adopted 2 liters per day as the drinking water exposure for its human health criteria methodology, understanding that it included a margin of safety that would ensure that most of the population would be protected.
In addition to the assumption in the methodology that the hypothetical man has an average daily consumption of 6.5 grams of fish, EPA assumes that all of that fish is taken from water with pollutants present at the criteria level.
As EPA noted in the proposed NTR, the exposure assumptions are based on approximate national averages, but ``considerably understate the exposure that would occur for certain segments of the population that have high fish consumption or depend on fish consumption for subsistence.'' Id. at 58,436.
