Being the hottest topic in bioethics since the murderous program in Nazi Germany till now, euthanasia carries different meaning based on its usage. Historian Suetonius described that Emperor Augustus experienced euthanasia by dying quickly and without suffering in the arms of his wife, Livia. In medical context, euthanasia was first used in 17th century by Francis Bacon meaning painless and happy death. However, defining euthanasia as “painless inducement of a quick death” was argued as it is not the exact definition of euthanasia. The debate on defining the term continues and does not ended yet though a lot of definition offered from various people and organisation. However, it is easier to understand euthanasia as the intentional killing by act or omission of a dependent human being for his or her alleged benefit. The key word here is "intentional". If death is not intended, it is not an act of euthanasia. Originated from the Greek meaning “good death” (well or good) + thanatos (death) refers to ...

Blue-chip offerings at NYC fall art auctions New York (AP) - The fall art auctions are about to sizzle. Coveted paintings by Andy Warhol and Edouard Manet - never before offered at auction - and works from single-owner collections with boldface names like Mellon and Bacall are expected to fire up bidding at the sales of impressionist, contemporary and modern art beginning Tuesday. "The fall auctions represent a rare opportunity for contemporary collectors to add not only quality but also pedigree to their collections," said Sarah Lichtman, director of The New School's master's degree program in the history of decorative arts and design. The exceptional quality of the works could mean a record-setting autumn, said Pat Berman, professor of art at Wellesley College. "The heights reached by Edvard Munch's "The Scream" or Francis Bacon's "Three Studies of Lucien Freud" - once beyond comprehension - are certainly attainable, and potentially eclipsed by these rare art trophies," she said. "The Scream" sold for n ...

11,000-9,000 years ago the practice of AGRICULTURE (farming) emerges independently three times in the New World and twice in the Old World — and dogs are tamed in both hemispheres. Humans begin domesticating plants and animals the world over. Within five thousand years we domesticate in the Eastern Hemisphere goats, sheep, wheat, barley, rice, pigs, chickens, cattle, millet, horses, camels, donkeys, elephants. Meanwhile in the Western Hemisphere we domesticate corn, squash, peppers, beans, amaranth, quinoa, peanuts. 7,000 years ago, humans arrive in Cuba and cause CUBAN EXTINCTION of the massive (including the loss of all six species of tree and ground sloth). 5,500 years ago the WHEEL AND CUNEIFORM WRITING are invented by the Sumerian civilization in Mesopotamia.

9 ways to overcome fear By John C. Maxwell. In a speech in 1933, American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt, addressing a nation mired in a Depression and on the verge of a world war, famously stated, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” During the first century A.D., Epictetus said, “It is not death or pain that is to be dreaded, but the fear of pain or death.” And in the 1600s, Francis Bacon remarked that, “Nothing is terrible except fear itself.”Fear is universal. It crosses all boundaries of race, culture, religion and generation. We all feel fear. So why do some people appear to be fearless, doing battle with enemies that others cower before? Because they recognize that the greatest enemy they face is the fear itself. The first battle every hero faces is against fear and its weapons of destruction. So how should we deal with fear? Avoiding it never really makes it go away; we either become paralyzed or defeated. Frantically searching for a quick fix usually just results in u ...

I (Mark, "I") played a little hookey yesterday morning to finally see the Francis Bacon & Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty exhibition at the AGO. No hating, but already having been an admirer of Moore's work I was hardly disappointed...Bacon leaves me a little cold. BUT what I can say is his colour scheme and technique must've been more-than alarming when first viewed so for that alone, I understand the fuss. However, it was David Altmejd's large installation "The Index" that probably kept my attention more than the entire FB/HM show, located on the 5th floor of the AGO. David's work is probably what I would dare to simulate if given the chance to create much larger versions of my mixed media collages! "The Index" refers to the cataloguing scientists make (and take) when classifying the natural world along with environmental issues as well as man's manipulation of these elements to satisfy his own ego. Cleverly, Altmejd uses mirrors to reflect ourselves into his work and often uses crystal-like forms to ind ...
