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 ...

Toast of the Day: “Champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends.” I heard Russell Johnson (the actor who later played the professor on Gilligan’s Island) give this toast to William Shatner last night in a 1961 episode of the “Thriller” TV show. I wondered if the toast originated with the show—or even with Johnson or Shatner—so I googled it and found the toast is attributed to 20th century painter Francis Bacon (not the Shakespeare-era Bacon, and no connection to Kevin Bacon). Comedian Fred Allen (Jack Benny’s radio foil, who started the “cheap” jokes about Benny) coined “I'd rather have a free bottle in front of me than a prefrontal lobotomy."

On a day like today, Spanish painter Francisco Goya was born March 30, 1746. Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (30 March 1746 - 16 April 1828) was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown, and through his works was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The subversive imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, notably Manet, Picasso and Francis Bacon.

Ben Franklin, was also a Rosicrucian Grand Master, who was at the heart of the Illuminati operations to take over America and replace the visible control of the British Empire with the invisible control of the secret brotherhood, the most effective and ongoing form of mastering the underclass. It is said the Illuminati, via the Freemasons, controlled and manipulated both sides in the American War of Independence and were also deeply connected with the French Revolution (1789). Franklin was Agent 72 of the British intelligence agency created by Dr. John Dee and Francis Bacon during the rein of Elizabeth I. During their time in London, Franklin and the Professor were brought into contact with those in positions of power who shared their Masonic and occult interests. One of these was Sir Francis Dashwood, the English Chancellor of the Exchequer who was also the founder of a secret society called the Friars of St. Francis of Wycombe, more popularly known in the parlors of London as the *** Fire Club.

Brief Introduction A:Authobiography Nicholas Evans was born and grew up in Worcestershire, England. He studied law at Oxford University, graduating with first class honors, then worked as a journalist for three years on the Evening Chronicle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He then moved into television, producing films about US politics and the Middle-East for a weekly current affairs programme called Weekend World. It was during this time that he traveled a lot and got to know the United States. In 1982 he started to produce arts documentaries – about famous writers, painters and film-makers, several of which won international awards (films about David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Patricia Highsmith). In 1983 he made a film about the great British director David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, etc). Lean became a friend and mentor and encouraged Evans to switch from fact to fiction. For the next ten years, Evans wrote and produced a number of films for television and the cinema. In 1993 he met a blacksmit ...

THE BACON LEGACY- "One of the most important men of this entire era was the (Rosicrucian), Francis Bacon. His influence was colossal. He was the Grand Master of the (Rosicrucians) in England, a major force in the creation of Freemasonry, the father of modern science, and possibly one of the authors of the Shakespeare plays. He was also a member of a secret society called the Order of the Helmet, dedicated to the worship of the goddess of wisdom, Pallas Athene, who was portrayed as a wearing a helmet and holding a spear. Researchers and investigators like Manly P. Hall, the renowned Freemasonic historian, have little doubt that Bacon was born from a liason between Queen Elizabeth I, the 'virgin queen', and her lover Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester". - The Biggest Secret, David Icke pg.163
Many a man nurses a lot of dreams, and some 'determines' to become someone's else in future. He envies the man's fortune, prowess and dexterity, and mimicks his works of arts and literatures. Just as a result of the man's integrity, privilege, popularity, veneration as well as love earned within and outside the country. But the imitator has forgotten, that through imitating other character, features--- he has indirectly curtained and limited his indefinite inalienable and inborn gene to a certain terminal which he cannot transcend the line of the person he's imitating. I cherish the shrewd skills of Confucius, Buddha, Plato, Aristotle, Aristophane, Socrate, Francis Bacon, Benjamin Franklin, Ab Lincoln, William James, Obama jnr., Shakespeare, Horace, Wordsworth, Maxwell, Chomsky, Dale, Wole Soyinka, Late Achebe, Late Festus, Olarotimi,Chimamanda Ngozi adichie,Jerry agada...but the fact is that I shall never pray to be like one them. But always retain my real identity...because we all possess the same genes ...

RECYCLED KNOWLEDGE (My radical take) Francis Bacon rightly said that ‘reading makes a full man’, a ‘full man’ then would be one not only well-versed and competent in what he/she does, but also well informed about the world around him/her. Reading, therefore, as an undisputed source of human knowledge and information of all kinds, is of fundamental importance for academic progress and general human development. But let us, for once, throw this into logic, better still, logic into this, or say rationalize a bit. How? For instance, you and I have witnessed a generation that has wholeheartedly hyped reading (studying) as if life per se depends on it; as if to do otherwise is a deadly evil. Hence, for fear of persecution or the perceived death, many have flocked headlong to any camp ascribed to academe. With what outcome? After sessions of monotonous recycling of age-old knowledge (no doubt, knowledge is timeless) and even state-of-the-art hypotheses and theories, the thoroughbreds are then found roami ...

The contemplation of things as they are, without substitution or imposture, without error or confusion, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention. Francis Bacon
Fashion is only the attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercourse. - Francis Bacon
"When you wish to achieve results that have not been achieved before, it is an unwise fancy to think that they can be achieved by using methods that have been used before"- Sir Francis Bacon

My take on the whole Bill Nye/Ken Ham debate. This entire debate is surrounding Bill Nye's statements about Creationism. Such as "Creationism is not appropriate for children". Well I think some important points were missing from both sides last night. Such as "are there excellent scientists who believe in God?" Well lets take a look . Father of the modern computer - Charles Babbage Father of Physics- Sir Isaac Newton Father of Chemistry- Sir Robert Boyle Father of Astronomy- Galileo Galilei Fathers of the Scientific method- Sir Francis Bacon, Galileo Galilei, Sir Isaac Newton Pioneer of modern Mathematics- Leohard Euler Father of Taxonomy- Carl Linnaeus So don't tell me I cant raise my children to believe in creationism, while you stand on the shoulders of creationists. I'm not saying that you can't be a great scientist even with your delusions. If you want to believe that the world came into being from nothing and has no purpose then your welcome to teach your children that. But don't tell me that my kid ...

12 INDISPUTABLE SIGNS THAT YOU’RE BEING MANIPULATED BY YOUR LOVER Love cures people - both the ones who give and the ones who receive it.Prince Chuks It’s quite obvious that the human nature is indeed possessive and domineering. Sadly enough, most often, people who are inclined to constantly impress others lose their personality in relationships. Experience and research have shown that the most vulnerable moment of an individual is when he or she is in love. This accounts for the reason why so many have been exploited, abused, scammed, deceived, tricked, hoodwinked, hoaxed, deluded, swindled, defrauded, cheated, double-crossed, gulled, beguiled; and even duped. As Francis Bacon (a contemporary Philosopher) would say: Knowledge is power. And as such, a person who is not well informed is basically limited, and cannot but walk in a dark alley. I’m not trying to go professorial or philosophical in this reflection. However, I feel constantly obliged as an informed mind to elucidate / expound the high poi ...

Francis Bacon in my eyes, Desmond Dekker in my ears, and cherry white tea in my mouth :) sensetastic!
Someone who knows me far, FAR better than they should considering that we've generally only ever communicated via electronic mediums tagged me to do Francis Bacon; an artist that I continually return to for inspiration, his cold and acutely precise autopsies of the darkest and most sublimated of human concerns something that chimes massively with my fiction, and had more than a passing influence on Strange Playgrounds.

something else to look forward to. another great artist, richard hamilton. The Guardian re Hamilton's upcoming Tate Modern exhibit Richard Hamilton: portrait of the artist as a social networker Artist Richard Hamilton was snapped by everyone from Cartier-Bresson to Hockney to Jasper Johns. Jonathan Jones on a life in Polaroids The great British modern artist Richard Hamilton could see into the future. In his 1956 collage Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing? he saw the consumer society in all its TV ad glory when most Britons were still trudging smoggy streets of postwar austerity. With its framed comic, tinned ham sculpture, television, tape recorder and a bodybuilder clutching a giant lolly labelled POP, Hamilton's ideal home was the manifesto of pop art. In these pictures, the famous and the gifted return a favour, and portray a man who chronicled the rise of pop culture. John Lennon and Paul McCartney snap the artist who designed The White Album.

I know there are Christians in the world who believe in old earth creation. Fine. No need to argue about that-it's a matter of liberty, not a heaven or *** issue, as Ken Ham stated in the debate last night. But please, please, PLEASE, for the love of God do not “side” with Bill Nye on any of his other beliefs, especially if you call yourself a Christian.   Do not “side” with a man who took every single opportunity to speak to arrogantly mock Christian scientists and warn the country about some supposed threat to society and scientific advancement by people who hold Biblical worldview. Do not encourage persecution of Christian faith for the sake of being “right” about the origin of life. Please.   I'm encouraging people (especially Christians) to reexamine some the points Bill Nye made in the debate last night insinuating that faith is the enemy of reason. Faith and reason do not conflict each other at all! In fact, faith is necessary for reason.   Everyone who exercises reason uses faith i ...

LOVE IS THE DEVIL (dir. John Maybury) The film concerns the Irish born English figurative painter Francis Bacon, and focuses on his life in the early 1960's when he was one of the central figures in a group of dissipated and debauched intellectuals at the Colony Room, a private drinking club in London's Soho district. Bacon's portrait style during this period is reminiscent of the work of contemporary American artist, Ralph Steadman in that both artists render their subjects in a bloated or garishly distorted manner. And, John Maybury, the director of LOVE IS THE DEVIL conveys this aspect of Bacon's painting style by shooting parts of the film using curious time-lapsed techniques, odd camera angles, and blurred optical abnormalities that really highlight Francis Bacon's cracked artistic vision. Derek Jacobi is note perfect as the dissolute, alcoholic painter, and Daniel Craig is surprisingly convincing as Bacon's thuggish lover, George Dyer. And, Tilda Swinton is positively devastating as Muriel Belcher, ...

Hope Quotes These quotations will give you hope and build your faith. Don’t lose Hope. Allow the hope of God to flow into you. God’s hope encourages, motivates, and keeps you on the road to faith, peace, and victory. Hopelessness breeds and creates the ‘feeling‘ of depression. Hope is the road, Faith is the victory. Martin Luther – “Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.” Unknown – Don’t worry, the fog will lift. Rex Rouis – “Hope is the raw material from which faith builds the house.” Alexandre Dumas – All human wisdom is summed up in two words: wait and hope. John Fitzgerald Kennedy – We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes. Randy Furco - You can have hope without faith, but you can not have faith without hope! Helen Keller – Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. Aristotle – “Hope is a waking dream.” [This has also been attributed to Pindar and Plato.] Francis Bacon – ...

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY 7th January 1536 Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII of England and mother of Mary I, died, at Kimbolton Castle in Cambridgeshire where she had lived since Henry annulled their marriage. The Pope had declined the request for an annulment, but Henry married his mistress Anne Boleyn regardless, a chain of events that led to England's break with the Roman Catholic Church. 1558 English forces were ousted from the French port of Calais, led by the Duke of Guise. Calais had surrendered to an invading English army in 1346 and its recapture by the French saw the last continental possession of England forfeited. 1618 Francis Bacon became Lord Chancellor of England.

 A. E. Mander: "Thinking is skilled work. It is not true that we are naturally endowed with the ability to think clearly and logically - without learning how, or without practicing. People with untrained minds should no more expect to think clearly and logically than people who have never learned and never practiced can expect to find themselves good carpenters, golfers, bridge players, or pianists." Francis Bacon, 1605, “Critical thinking is a desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and hatred for every kind of imposture.” Everyone thinks; however, much of our thinking is reactive, biased, uninformed and often prejudiced. More often than not, it is also haphazard and undisciplined. Critical thinking helps us balance our emotions, which in turn leads to good judgment and making informed, good decisions. TRUTH- Is Jesus the ONLY Truth? Or is it elitism, exclusionary. Or is it fundamentally different or ...

Very much enjoyed the 'Elizabeth I & her people' exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery with Bob today (the tickets were one of Bob's Xmas presents). My favourite was the portrait of a young and moody-looking John Donne. Also really liked the minature of an 18 year old Francis Bacon, its loveliness only enhanced by the fact that it was acquired through the 'Acceptance in Lieu' (inheritance tax) scheme. The child with his nurse, and the fete in Bermondsey were other highlights.

Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561 in London, England. Bacon served as attorney general and Lord Chancellor of England, resigning amid charges of corruption. His more valuable work was philosophical. Bacon took up Aristotelian ideas, arguing for an empirical, inductive approach, known as the scientific method, which is the foundation of modern scientific inquiry.
