Jenny Diski, the renowned English author who wrote a serialised column about her cancer, has died at the age of 68. Her partner Ian Patterson announced the news on Twitter this morning. “Sad news.

Japan's influence on British author Carter revealed in new biography
 
06:25
A biography of renowned British author Angela Carter sheds new light on the influence Japan had on her writing while also detailing the role she played as a mentor to Nobel Literature Prize Laureate Kazuo Ishiguro.Carter, an acclaimed author of feminist and magical realist fiction from the 1960s until her early death from lung cancer in 1992, was named in 2008 as the 10th greatest postwar British writer by The Times newspaper, a list that also included Ishiguro at 32nd and "Harry Potter" creator J.K.Rowling at 42nd.(Angela Carter's Estate) Later in her career, she took up a post teaching creative writing at East Anglia University in Norwich, Britain, where she oversaw Ishiguro, according to Edmund Gordon, author of the biography titled "The Invention of Angela Carter.""They went from a teacher-student relationship to being friends.She was incredibly supportive of him from the beginning," Gordon said in a recent interview with Kyodo News."They did not always have the same ideas about writing, but they had a lot of respect for each other's work.""They did certainly talk about Japan, about Japanese literature and cinema a lot.They were both huge film buffs."Gordon said Carter showed him the importance of individuality and not worrying about literary trends.Carter taught Ishiguro about structure, or "the nuts and bolts," and how to deal with suspense in his first novel, he said."Certainly, he saw her as the senior writer, but he became very quickly more commercially successful than she did.By his second novel he was getting larger advances than she ever did," Gordon said.In 1969, Carter escaped her failing marriage by using money from a prestigious literary award to travel to Japan, where she lived periodically for the next few years.It "completely changed her as an artist, as a writer, as a person," according to Gordon.At a time when few British people traveled to Japan, Gordon offers several reasons for her choice of destination."I think she was very interested in the culture.She loved Japanese literature; she thought Junichiro Tanizaki was one of the world's great novelists," Gordon said, adding that being in a place very different from Britain was also alluring.Carter wrote to a friend that Tokyo was "probably the most absolutely non-boring city in the world."In the biography, Gordon recounts how she found the city on the cusp of immense change, offering dazzling neon and vending machines against a backdrop of reeking sewers and cranes towering over low-rise buildings.She began a relationship with Japanese writer Sozo Araki and they lived together in Tokyo and, for one winter, at a beach house in Kujukuri, Chiba Prefecture.Her experiences in Japan feature in her work both directly and indirectly."Fireworks" is a collection of short stories where accounts of her time in Japan are weaved around fictionalized, often disturbing tales, and she also wrote nonfiction essays about the author Yukio Mishima, fertility festivals and other elements of Japan

Elisa: The Documentary
 
56:01
Sign the petition: https://goo.gl/Z6STwd Some have sensationally dubbed it “the most mysterious case of the 21st century”. Yet, how much do we actually know about Elisa Lam's bizarre, possibly paranormal-related, death? In this paranormal documentary, the Paranormal Scholar presents the humanised story of an intelligent and passionate young woman, who perished under mysterious circumstances in early 2013 at the Cecil Hotel of Los Angeles. Although Elisa's death was described as "accidental" by the police, many have been left unsatisfied in the months and years which followed. Various alternative theories have been put forward. We aim to outline - and where possible - disprove these theories, always providing evidence as we do. What happened in that hotel? Is this a case of true crime, true horror, or a tragic accident? ⤕ Horror With Heidi: https://goo.gl/t6SufY Please remember to turn on my CHANNEL NOTIFICATIONS so you are always notified when my newest video goes live!

01:18
One of Australia's most recognisable actors, Penne Hackforth-Jones, has died at the age of 64 after battling lung cancer. Born in 1949 in the US state of Connecticut, she was brought up in Australia. Her first credited role was in the 1969 TV series Riptide. Hackforth-Jones appeared in many well-known Australian television series, including A Country Practice, All Saints and Mother and Son. She also featured in a number of movies, including Mao's Last Dancer in 2009 and Muriel's Wedding in 1994. In the latter, Hackforth-Jones shines in a memorable exchange with Rachel Griffiths. Playing a bridal shop manger who is helping Muriel try on a wedding dress, Hackforth-Jones tells wheelchair-bound Rhonda (Griffiths): "You can't come in here and threaten brides. I don't care how unfortunate you are." Her last appearance was in ABC1's The Doctor Blake Mysteries. Hackforth-Jones also wrote a biography of her great-great grandmother, Barbara Baynton: Between Two Worlds. Barbara Baynton was a novelist and writer, famous for her short stories published under the title Bush Studies.

I Passed out at Work
 
10:01
Bella is as hard working as they come. She grew up being teased by her classmates for her ambitions and her lack of good grades. But that made her want to show people even more that she could do it. So she decided that she would succeed by working harder than everyone else. In this story we address the problem that our society often sees hard work as a virtue, while taking care of your mind and body is optional. But this is a very dangerous thought because focusing only on work is linked to a multitude of health risks including stress, burnout, cancer, heart disease and many more. In this story we want to tell people that if you take some pressure off and give your mind and body time to recover, you will not only be healthier, but you'll actually get more work done than if you're always busy and stressed. As always, we appreciate all the feedback and hoped you enjoyed this story.

Dying to be me! Anita Moorjani at TEDxBayArea
 
18:06
Doctors had given Anita Moorjani just hours to live when she arrived at the hospital in a coma on the morning of February 2nd, 2006. Unable to move as a result of the cancer that had ravaged her body for almost four years, Anita entered another dimension, where she experienced great clarity and understanding of her life and purpose here on earth. She was given a choice of whether to return to life or not, and chose to return to life when she realized that "heaven" is a state and not a place. This subsequently resulted in a remarkable and complete recovery of her health. Anita's riveting talk will inspire you to transform your life by living more authentically, discovering your greatest passions, transcending your deepest fears, and living from a place of pure joy. Her true story will radically alter your current beliefs about yourself, your purpose on earth, your health, your relationships, and your life! About our speaker. ANITA MOORJANI BIO: Anita Moorjani has become something of an international sensation since her book "Dying to be Me" hit the New York Times bestsellers list only two weeks after its release in March, 2012. She had experienced what most people never have; she "crossed over," and came back to share what she learned. Her remarkable NDE (Near-death experience) and subsequent healing from end-stage cancer is one of the most amazing cases ever recorded. Doctors had given her mere hours to live when she arrived at the hospital in a coma on the morning of February 2, 2006. Unable to move, and in a deep coma as the result of the cancer that had ravaged her body for nearly four years, Anita entered another dimension, where she experienced great clarity and understanding of her life and purpose here on earth, and was given a choice of whether to return to life or continue on into death. Anita chose to return to life when she realized that "heaven" is a state, not a place. This subsequently resulted in a remarkable and complete recovery of her health within days of her return. Born in Singapore of Indian parents, Anita has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. She is multi-lingual, and from the age of two, grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously. She had been working in the corporate field for several years before her cancer diagnosis in 2002. She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life's most adverse situations, as she is the living proof of this possibility. World-renowned author, Dr. Wayne Dyer has been instrumental in bringing Anita's story to public attention, and wrote the foreword to her book. He subsequently invited her to appear on his TV special, "Wishes Fulfilled", which airs frequently on PBS. Following the global success of her book, which is being translated and published into 34 different languages, Anita has regularly been interviewed on various prime time television shows around the world, including three times on "Fox News" in New York, "The Jeff Probst Show" in Hollywood, cable TV's "National Geographic International", "The Pearl Report" in Hong Kong, "HeadStart" with Karen Davila in the Philippines, CNN documentary in production, among many others. She inspires her audience to transform their lives by living more authentically, discovering their greatest passions, transcending their deepest fears, and living from a place of pure joy, and has the ability to explain such mind-bending concepts as timelessness, non-duality, and simultaneous realities, in such simplified terms that everyone can understand. Anita is currently one of the most sought after inspirational speakers in the world and addresses sell out audiences all over the globe. website: http://www.anitamoorjani.com Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/Anita.Moorjani In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Taking Control of Death
 
06:15
Science isn’t the only game in town. Literature can teach us things about the world that science can’t. It can give us vicarious experience and insight into other minds. Two recently published novels illuminate why perfectly rational people might reject the help of scientific medicine and prefer to die a little sooner but to die on their own terms. In Finding Frances, by Janice M. Van Dyck, an elderly woman with COPD and heart disease has had a gradual decrease in her quality of life and has been ready to die for some time. She believes in God and an afterlife and is not afraid of dying. When she needs emergency surgery to remove a section of infarcted bowel, she wants to refuse it, but accepts mainly because she is told that otherwise she will be sent home where insurance won’t cover her care and her husband’s savings will be depleted (which isn’t really true). The first surgery leads to complications and she is offered a second operation with a 25% chance of success. She refuses despite the strong urgings of her health care providers and her entire family. She is given hospice care, stops eating, and eventually dies. The book chronicles the course of the death process in hospice, giving a feel for what the experience is like and how it impacts family members. In The Leisure Seeker, by Michael Zadoorian, Ella and John, a couple in their 80s, set out on one last road trip in their RV, to follow the entire length of old Route 66 and revisit Disneyland. Their doctors and their children try desperately to dissuade them. He has Alzheimer’s and she has cancer and other health problems: between them they have one functional brain and one functional body. She has refused surgery and chemotherapy, uses a walker, and is dependent on pain pills. He has made her promise that she will never put him in a nursing home. After many mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures, they manage to reach Disneyland. Then she finds a way to end both their lives at the same time so neither will be left alone. She is a feisty, colorful character and the book is hilarious despite its sad subject. Ella tells us what it feels like to become old and decrepit, to be handicapped and live in pain, and to live with a demented loved one who must constantly be watched and doesn’t always remember who you are. And how one can find joy in the small pleasures of life despite all those problems. I don’t think I would make the same choices in their situation, but I can understand their choices and empathize with them. They didn’t give up hope or turn to false hopes, but they created their own realistic hope — the hope of a “good death.” They rejected dependence on medical care, took control of their lives, and met death on their own terms. I have to respect their autonomy and admire their courage. As Ella says at the end of The Leisure Seeker after she plans her own and her husband’s death by carbon monoxide poisoning: This is not always what love means, but this is what it means for us today. It is not your place to say.

Beat Poetry from an automatic transcript of Wuthering Heights.
 
04:17
A group of science fiction and fantasy authors have joined forces to raise funds for Jay Lake's struggle against cancer by committing Acts of Whimsy on the internet. One of these was Paul Cornell's rendition of Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" with the assistance of his new son. This is the beat poetry rendition of the automatic YouTube transcript of that performance. paulcornell.com/2013/01/for-jay.html Jay Lake is an award-winning American author of ten science fiction novels and over 300 short stories. He is also one of more than a million Americans who have colon cancer. Diagnosed in April, 2008, Jay's cancer has progressed from a single tumor to metastatic disease affecting the lung and liver, recurring after multiple surgeries and chemotherapy courses, and multiplying from single tumor presentations to multiple tumors presentations. Jay is now in his fourth round of chemotherapy, but it's not clear that it's working, and his doctors have little to go on in terms of advising further courses of treatment for him. In short, things are not looking good for Jay. Not at all. But with the help of people like you, we're making Jay laugh and hopefully getting a step closer to finding an effective treatment.

innegans Wake is a work of comic fiction by Irish author James Joyce, significant for an experimental style, and its resulting reputation as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. Written in Paris over a period of 17 years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work. The entire book is written in an idiosyncratic language, consisting of multilingual puns and portmanteau words, which attempts to recreate the experience of sleep and dreams. Due to its expansive linguistic experiments, stream of consciousness writing style, literary allusions, free dream associations, and its abandonment of conventions of plot and character construction, Finnegans Wake remains largely unread by the general public.[4][5] Despite these obstacles, readers and commentators have reached a broad consensus about the book's central cast of characters and, to a lesser degree, its plot. However, a significant number of details remain elusive.[6] The book treats, in an unorthodox fashion, the Earwicker family, composed of the father HCE, the mother ALP, and their three children Shem the Penman, Shaun the Post, and Issy. Following an unspecified rumour about HCE, the book, in a nonlinear dream narrative,[7] follows his wife's attempts to exonerate him with a letter, his sons' struggle to replace him, Shaun's rise to prominence, and a final monologue by ALP at the break of dawn. The opening line of the book is a sentence fragment, which continues from the book's unfinished closing line, making the work a never-ending cycle.[8] Joyce began working on Finnegans Wake shortly after the 1922 publication of Ulysses. By 1924 installments of Joyce's new avant-garde work began to appear, in serialized form, in Parisian literary journals Transatlantic Review and transition, under the title "fragments from Work in Progress". The actual title of the work remained a secret until the book was published in its entirety, on 4 May 1939.[9] Initial reaction to Finnegans Wake, both in its serialized and final published form, was largely negative, ranging from bafflement at its radical reworking of the English language to open hostility towards its lack of respect for the conventions of the novel. The work has since come to assume a preeminent place in English literature, despite its numerous detractors. Anthony Burgess has praised the book as "a great comic vision, one of the few books of the world that can make us laugh aloud on nearly every page."] Harold Bloom called the book "Joyce's masterpiece", and wrote that "[if] aesthetic merit were ever again to center the canon [Finnegans Wake] would be as close as our chaos could come to the heights of Shakespeare and Dante."] In 1998, the Modern Library placed Finnegans Wake seventy-seventh amongst its list of "Top 100 English-language novels of the twentieth century."[

Trailer for THE THIEVES OF MANHATTAN by Adam Langer

A novel about a down-on-his-luck short-story writer who becomes embroiled in an elaborate confidence game designed to scam the publishing world Thieves of Manhattan takes us to places that fiction dares not tread. This is bold, brave, worrying work from a wonderful wunderkind! —Laura Albert (JT LeRoy), author of Sarah and The Heart Is Deceitful Beyond All Things I loved this book—its both laugh-out-loud funny and satisfyingly snarky about the state of publishing these days. A delight to read. —Nancy Pearl, author of Book Lust A triumph on every level, an absorbing story throbbing with energy and intellect. —Elif Shafak, author of Forty Rules of Love Its the rare literary novel that can stand up to the rigors of six hours sandwiched in coach between a shrieking newborn and a gentleman hacking up at least one of his lungs. The Thieves of Manhattan, Adam Langers latest wise and wonderful romp, did the trick splendidly. So splendidly, in fact, that Id recommend it even to those who plan to travel no farther than their armchairs. —Ayelet Waldman, author of Bad Mother and Red Hook Road A page-turning thriller, a lacerating lampoon of the literary life, and a powerful tribute to the art and craft of fakery. Adam Langers caper of con artists, thug librarians, and fraudulent memoirs moves into that area of truth to which all writers aspire. —Clifford Irving, author of The Autobiography of Howard Hughes and The Hoax A gleeful addition to the caper canon, a richly twisted narrative that jauntily skewers the publishing business. Along its merry way, it also explores the all-important (and seemingly nonexistent) distinction between fake memoirs and real novels. —Nicholas Meyer, author of The Seven Percent Solution and The West End Horror Available everywhere books are sold July 13, 2010. http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9781400068913

American Novelist E.L. Doctorow, Author of Ragtime, Dies at 84
 
03:26
American novelist E.L. Doctorow, author of such tomes as Ragtime, Billy Bathgate, and The March, has died in New York at age 84. The writer's son Richard Doctorow told reporters his father died Tuesday of complications from lung cancer. Doctorow was characterized by President Barack Obama as "one of America's great novelists." The president said in a Twitter message Tuesday that he learned much from Doctorow's books -- mixtures of history and fiction, tales unspooled in a variety of experimental narrative styles. With "Ragtime,'' published in 1975, he entertained readers and dismayed some scholars by mixing historical figures such as J.P. Morgan, Harry Houdini and Emma Goldman with invented ones from suburban New Rochelle, where he lived at the time. In "The March,'' he depicted William Tecumseh Sherman's march through Georgia and the Carolinas from the vantage points of Sherman himself, a mixed-race freed slave girl, a brilliant but dispassionate battlefield surgeon and two Confederate prisoners who adopt various disguises. "History is the present. That's why every generation writes it anew,'' he told The Paris Review in 1986. "But what most people think of as history is its end product, myth. So to be irreverent to myth, to play with it, let in some light and air, to try to combust it back into history, is to risk being seen as someone who distorts truth." "Everything in 'Ragtime' is true,'' he said. "It is as true as I could make it. I think my vision of J. P. Morgan, for instance, is more accurate to the soul of that man than his authorized biography.'' Doctorow is said to have covered more than a century of American history in his 10 novels and two short story collections. He also authored a play called Drinks Before Dinner and numerous essays and articles. "Underlying everything - the evocative flashes, the dogged working of language - is the writer's belief in the story as a system of knowledge,'' he wrote in the introduction to his essay collection "Creationists,'' published in 2006. "This belief is akin to the scientist's faith in the scientific method as a way to truth.'' Born in New York City in 1931, Doctorow's grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Russia. He had said that his location in New York City exposed him to the unique cultural offerings of Manhattan as well as those of European émigrés who fled persecution in Europe during the years leading up to World War II. Manhattan plays a prominent role in many of his novels, and he kept a home in the city until his death. Doctorow was among the most honored authors of the past 40 years. The author's works won a series of top U.S. prizes for fiction -- the National Book Award for World's Fair, the National Book Critics Circle award and the PEN/Faulkner award for Billy Bathgate and The March. His novel Ragtime was made into an Oscar-nominated movie and later into a Broadway musical that won four Tony Awards. Doctorow was also the recipient of several lifetime achievement awards, among them the 2014 Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction. He is considered one of the most prominent American authors of the 20th century.

Are You Addicted To Your Cell Phone? - The Daily Orbit
 
04:41
Mapping Bigfoot...in a different way... Scientists say bigger isn't always better... And welcome to CPAA - Cell Phone Addicts Anonymous! All that and more coming up-- on the Daily Orbit! Hello and welcome to the Daily Orbit.  I'm Emerald Robinson. What's big, hairy, and supposedly related to us? Two guesses and it's not the ape at the zoo. One scientist in Texas is claiming to have sequenced Bigfoot's genome. Melba Ketchum and her team began testing supposed Sasquatch hair samples five years ago. The team says that the creature is a cross between modern Homo sapiens and another yet unknown primate species. Ketchum is now calling on public officials and law enforcement officers to recognize "Bigfoot" as an indigenous people. But this story is not without its critics. Scientists are already skeptical of the report, including why the release of these findings came before any peer review or vetting could take place. Real, not real...we'll let you be the judge! And I thought we had already established that the sea level was quickly rising, but I guess we underestimated how fast it's happening. A 2007 report estimated that sea levels were rising at a rate of 0.08 inches per year based on satellite data. However, new observations by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change indicate that the rate is actually closer to 0.125 inches per year (about a 60% increase). Current results were found combining data from five available global land and ocean temperature series using satellites that bounce radar waves back off the sea surface to determine sea levels. Researchers say the increased rate of sea-level rise is unlikely attributable to temporary episodic ice discharge from Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. Here's another reason to kick the habit. Besides the fact that cigarette smoking contributes to cancer, lung disease, heart disease, low birth weight and I could go on and on, new research shows it is also associated with mental decline, forgetfulness, and slower thinking. And if you're over 50 and a smoker, you can expect accelerated decline in brain function. The study found that smokers over 50 performed more poorly on a range of cognitive tasks designed to test memory recall, verbal fluency, attention and other cognitive functions than those who never picked up the habit. Smokers even had difficulty remembering common words and organizing daily tasks. Do you need any more reasons to quit?  Besides it's just not hot at all. And a new study says bigger was not necessarily better: well in the case of theropod dinosaurs. Researchers set out to discover why these feathered herbivores became so large, and if there was an evolutionary benefit to reach these large sizes. Scientists had previously theorized that bigger was better when it came to plant eating dinos, because larger digestive tracts allowed these creatures to get the maximum nutrition that could be taken from high-fiber, low-calorie food. Studying three groups of theropods, researched found some actually changed to a smaller form while others in the groups got larger. This showed that there was no clear natural selection that would drive them to increase in size. The results didn't rule out diet as affecting body mass, but they do seem to indicate that fluctuating environmental conditions over time were trumping the benefit of becoming a giant. So, "the long and short of it is that for plant-eating theropods, bigger wasn't always better." There ya have it. Hello, my name is Emerald...and I'm a cell phone addict...there I said it! It really doesn't come as a shock that cell phones are addictive, considering they have to practically be surgically dislodged from our palms. A new study is challenging the idea that behavioral and substance addictions are two separate afflictions. College undergraduates from two US universities completed a questionnaire that contained scales measuring materialism, impulsiveness, and mobile phone and instant messaging addiction. The study suggests that cell phone and instant messaging addictions are similar to credit card addiction and other pathologies. Researchers found that our impulsive and materialistic natures drive cell phone addictions. The researchers cited another study that reported that the average young adult sends nearly 110 text messages a day, while receiving 113 per day, will check their cell phone 60 times in a day and spend 7 hours of the day interacting with their phone in some other way. That's it for the Daily Orbit!  Ok, can you give me back my phone now? I just need to send one text, just one more...I promise!

The rich and beautiful Riya Somani, a girl from Delhi, is also selected through the sports quota. Meeting her, as he would call it a twist of fate Madhav and Riya become close friends due to their association with basketball. Madhav always wants to make her his girlfriend, which she refuses. Desperate to get physical with Riya, he demands to get physical with her.

A Practical Guide to Healing Your Body, Mind, and Spirit: 7 Spiritual Laws of Yoga by Deepak Chopra

► Your FREE Gift: LAW OF ATTRACTION Booster MP3 ► https://manifestmyowndestiny.com/loa-booster/ Free WEALTH Booster MP3 ► https://manifestmyowndestiny.com/wealth-booster/ A Practical Guide to Healing Your Body, Mind, and Spirit: 7 Spiritual Laws of Yoga by Deepak Chopra (Full Audiobook) The remarkable benefits of yoga, which include improved flexibility, balance, muscle tone, endurance, and vitality, only hint at the extraordinary power of this deeply spiritual practice. When adhered to and practiced mindfully, yoga can unlock readers’ full creative potential, their capacity for love and compassion, and ability to find success in all areas of their lives. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga brings spirituality back to yoga. It shows how the Seven Spiritual Laws play a crucial role in yoga’s path to enlightenment while providing readers with a wealth of meditation techniques, mantras, breathing exercises, and yoga poses. Whether a newcomer to yoga or an experienced practitioner, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga is a portal to yoga’s deeper spiritual dimension and a beautiful step to a happier, more harmonious, and more abundant life. The 7 Principles: Law of Pure Potentiality: Your essential nature is pure consciousness, the infinite source of everything that exists in the physical world. Since you are an inextricable part of the field of consciousness, you are also infinitely creative, unbounded, and eternal. Law of Giving and Receiving: Giving and receiving are different expressions of the same flow of energy in the universe. Since the universe is in constant and dynamic exchange, you need to both give and receive to keep abundance, love, and anything else you want circulating in your life. Law of Karma (Cause and Effect): Every action generates a force of energy that returns to you in kind. When you choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of your karma is happiness and success. Law of Least Effort: You can most easily fulfill your desires when your actions are motivated by love, and when you expend the least effort by offering no resistance. In this way, you tap into the infinite organizing power of the universe to do less and accomplish everything. Law of Intention and Desire: Inherent in every intention and desire are the mechanics for its fulfillment. When you become quiet and introduce your intentions into the field of pure potentiality, you harness the universe’s infinite organizing power, which can manifest your desires with effortless ease. Law of Detachment: At the spirit level, everything is always unfolding perfectly. You don’t have to struggle or force situations to go your way. Instead, you can intend for everything to work out as it should, take action, and then allow opportunities to spontaneously emerge. Law of Dharma: Everyone has a Dharma or purpose in life. By expressing your unique talents and using them to serve others, you will experience unlimited love, abundance, and true fulfillment in your life.

Warren Zevon - Keep Me In Your Heart
 
03:28
The Wind "The Wind", the twelfth and final studio album by Warren Zevon, was released 11 years ago today (26 August 2003). Zevon began recording the album shortly after he was diagnosed with inoperable pleural mesothelioma (a cancer of the lining of the lung), and it was released just two weeks before his death on September 7, 2003. The album was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. "Disorder In The House", performed by Zevon and Bruce Springsteen, won Best Rock Vocal Performance (Group or Duo). Songs from the album were nominated for an additional three Grammys.n". This may account for the mellow mood of the album, particularly the second half of the LP. Young has said of it "Good album. One side of it particularly—the side with 'Ambulance Blues', 'Motion Pictures' and 'On The Beach' — it's out there. It's a great take." ¨Warren Zevon knew he was dying when he began recording his final album in the fall of 2002. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma just a few weeks before the recording sessions started for "The Wind", and he had a set of new mournful songs about mortality plus the usual assortment of familiar themes ready to go. He also had a bunch of famous friends willing to help him out one last time. Jackson Browne, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen all joined him in the studio, giving poignant resonance to the new batch of songs, which turned out to be some of the strongest of his career. Zevon's illness certainly fueled the urgency of his final recordings, which betray a frailness in his voice and even in his spirit at times. But the defiant tone captured in early songs like "Frank And Jesse James" can be heard in "The Wind" tracks like "Dirty Life And Times", and his eternal romance-on-the-rocks fatalism breaks through "She’s Too Good for Me". But the album is mostly about end days. It can’t be escaped. He knows it, and so do his collaborators and backing musicians. Death runs through most of the songs — from "Please Stay", disguised as a lover’s plea, to the cover of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door". It hits hardest on the album’s last track, "Keep Me In Your Heart", a teary farewell to family, friends and fans. From the song’s opening line — “Shadows are falling, and I’m running out of breath” to its last — “These wheels keep turning, but they’re running out of steam / Keep me in your heart for a while” — it’s near impossible to make it through the song without getting choked up. Zevon played this as his epitaph and, in a way, it’s his last devilish trick on his audience. Not that anyone was given any hope (Zevon went on David Letterman's program after his diagnosis and chatted with the host in one of the most heartening, and heartbreaking, moments to ever grace late-night TV). "Keep Me In Your Heart" is a carefully played goodbye coming at the end of one of Zevon's best albums.¨ (Michael Gallucci, ultimateclassicrock.com) "Keep Me In Your Heart" is the final track on the album. Zevon intended the song to be his final farewell. He told VH1 that "I don’t think anybody knows quite what to do when they get the diagnosis. I picked up the guitar and found myself writing this kind of farewell. Instantly I realized I’d found what to do with myself. On reflection it might be a little bit of a ‘woe is me’ song, but it made me realize what I was going to do with the rest of the time. It may be the last song on the album, but it was the first song I wrote." Lyrics: Shadows are falling and I'm running out of breath Keep me in your heart for awhile If I leave you it doesn't mean I love you any less Keep me in your heart for awhile When you get up in the morning and you see that crazy sun Keep me in your heart for awhile There's a train leaving nightly called when all is said and done Keep me in your heart for awhile Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo Keep me in your heart for awhile Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo Keep me in your heart for awhile Sometimes when you're doing simple things around the house Maybe you'll think of me and smile You know I'm tied to you like the buttons on your blouse Keep me in your heart for awhile Hold me in your thoughts, take me to your dreams Touch me as I fall into view When the winter comes keep the fires lit And I will be right next to you Engine driver's headed north to Pleasant Stream Keep me in your heart for awhile These wheels keep turning but they're running out of steam Keep me in your heart for awhile Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo Keep me in your heart for awhile Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo Keep me in your heart for awhile Keep me in your heart for awhile

Gael Elton Mayo, writer, photographer and artist, talks about her memoir THE MAD MOSAIC, 1950s Europe, Magnum Photos & Robert Capa, and her long fight against cancer. Interviewer: Richard Baker BBC Radio 4, Start the Week, 4 March 1983 Copyright images from the Gael Elton Mayo Archive Copyright © Estate of Gael Elton Mayo Email: rights@bookblast.com www.bookblast.com A LIFE IN PICTURES Born in Australia in 1921, Gael Elton Mayo was the youngest daughter of pioneering industrial psychologist, Emeritus Professor George Elton Mayo, and Dorothea McConnel. She lived in America as a child, where her father had a Life Chair for research at Harvard. She was studying for a degree at the Sorbonne when she met a Russian émigré whom she married just before the outbreak of World War Two.The couple got caught up in the Exodus and their son was born during the bombardment of Bordeaux. After near death from puerperal fever, hiding with farmers, being shot at by German soldiers, they reached Free France — only to find they were not free. Eventually, they arrived in New York by way of Spain and Argentina. In 1944 Doubleday published her first novel, Honeymoon in Hell, based on her wartime experiences. But it is in her autobiography, The Mad Mosaic (1983), that her wartime escape is truly told. Gael returned to post-war Europe where she worked as a journalist for the Spanish American Courier and Picture Post; and as writer-researcher for Magnum Photographers in Paris, with Robert Capa, David Seymour and Henri Cartier-Bresson. She wrote 'Generation X' with Cartier-Bresson in England (later changed to 'Youth of the World' by Holiday Magazine and published in 1953). Four novels were published in the 1960s: The Devil and the Fool, Nobody's Nothing, Last Seen Near Trafalgar, It's Locked In With You. Gael's painting was encouraged by Moïse Kisling, who did a portrait of her (now in a private collection in Japan). She had eight exhibitions across Europe, and in 1969 was listed in The Encyclopaedia of Australian Art (Hutchinson). She lived with her third husband in the Jura, and also in Provence, recounted in her memoir, The End of a Dream. For the last twenty years of her life, Gael fought a virulent cancer of the head and neck about which she wrote in a second volume of autobiography, Living With Beelzebub. It was published just before she died in 1992. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gael-Elton-Mayo/e/B001HPLOWU/ref=dp_byline_cont_pop_book_1

Boris Pasternak, 1958 Nobel Laureate in Literature (A Meditation)
 
03:09
Judge Mark Ciavarella was sentenced on August 12, 2011 to 28 years in prison. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_-02dPY7mg இڿڰۣ-ڰۣ—— Boris Leonidovich Pasternak (10 February [O.S. 29 January] 1890 -- 30 May 1960) was a Russian language poet, novelist, and literary translator. In his native Russia, Pasternak's anthology My Sister Life, is one of the most influential collections ever published in the Russian language. Furthermore, his translations of William Shakespeare remain deeply popular with Russian audiences. Outside his homeland, Pasternak is best known for authoring Doctor Zhivago, a novel set during the last years of the House of Romanov and the earliest days of the Soviet Union. Banned in the USSR, Doctor Zhivago was smuggled to Milan and published in 1957. Pasternak was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature the following year, an event which both humiliated and enraged the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In the midst of massive campaign against him by both the KGB and the Union of Soviet Writers, Pasternak reluctantly agreed to decline the Prize. However, the campaign against Pasternak had severely damaged the international credibility of the U.S.S.R. Pasternak remained a highly respected figure in World literature even after his death from lung cancer in 1960. Furthermore, tactics pioneered by Pasternak were later continued, expanded, and refined by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and other Soviet dissidents. Pasternak was born in Moscow on 10 February, (Gregorian), 1890 (Julian 29 January) into a wealthy Russian Jewish family which had been received into the Russian Orthodox Church. His father was the Post-Impressionist painter, Leonid Pasternak, professor at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture, and his mother, Rosa Kaufman, was a concert pianist. Shortly before his birth, Pasternak's parents had left the Orthodox Church for Tolstoyan Christianity. Leo Tolstoy was not only a close family friend. Pasternak later recalled, "my father illustrated his books, went to see him, revered him, and ...the whole house was imbued with his spirit." In a 1956 essay, Pasternak recalled his father feverishly compiling illustrations for Tolstoy's novel Resurrection. The novel was then serialized in the journal Niva by the publisher Fyodor Marx, based in St Petersburg. The sketches were drawn from observations in such places as courtrooms, prisons and on trains, in spirit of realism. To ensure that the sketches met the journal deadline train conductors were enlisted to personally collect the illustrations. Pasternak wrote, "My childish imagination was struck by the sight of a train conductor in his formal railway uniform, standing waiting at the door of the kitchen as if he were standing on a railway platform at the door of a compartment that was just about to leave the station. Joiner's glue was boiling on the stove. The illustrations were hurriedly wiped dry, fixed, glued on pieces of cardboard, rolled up, tied up. The parcels, once ready, were sealed up with sealing wax and handed to the conductor." According to Max Hayward, "In November 1910, when Tolstoy fled from his home and and died in the stationmaster's house at Astapovo, Leonid Pasternak was informed by telegram and he went there immediately, taking his son Boris with him, and made a drawing of Tolstoy on his deathbed." Regular visitors to the Pasternak's home also included Sergei Rachmaninoff, Alexander Scriabin, Lev Shestov, Rainer Maria Rilke. Pasternak aspired first to be a musician. Inspired by Scriabin, Pasternak briefly was a student at the Moscow Conservatory. In 1910 he abruptly left for the German University of Marburg, where he studied under Neo-Kantian philosophers Hermann Cohen and Nicolai Hartmann. *** Prayer and Torah study groups will continue to be held around the world in the merit of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin and his family.

100 Ways To Motivate YOURSELF: Change Your Life Forever With These POWERFUL Secrets To Self-Mastery
 
01:31:35
► Your FREE Gift: LAW OF ATTRACTION Booster MP3 ► https://manifestmyowndestiny.com/loa-booster/ Free WEALTH Booster MP3 ► https://manifestmyowndestiny.com/wealth-booster/ 100 Ways To Motivate YOURSELF: Change Your Life Forever With These POWERFUL Secrets To Self-Mastery Steve Chandler’s best selling 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself: Change Your Life Forever tackles the attitudes and behaviors that block motivating success. The overarching premise of the book is simple — taking responsibility for what you wish to achieve empowers you to create the life you imagine. A lack of confidence in your ability to succeed drains away the motivation necessary take positive actions. Chandler likens motivation to fire, a burning desire to achieve. The problem becomes, how does one get an inner “fire” started? Are some just born inspired? “My own life’s turning point came when I discovered I could light that fire all by myself,” Chandler writes. Just as starting a fire requires the friction of two sticks rubbing together, it takes action to create an inner fire, a motivating drive. Chandler quotes psychotherapist and author Dr. Nathaniel Branden, “A goal without an action plan is a daydream, ” and 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself is a kind of action plan. Each short chapter, by way of anecdotes, populated with a wide range of characters from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Winston Churchill, describes techniques to overcome self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. This updated version includes new mental and spiritual techniques developed through Chandler’s experience as a personal coach. The book opens with a look at the big picture. What is important? What do you really want from life? Chapter one, morbidly titled Get on your deathbed, is actually enlightening. It asks the reader to imagine they are dying. What would you want to say to each person that visits you as your life ends? Subsequent chapters ask the reader to create a vision of themselves, harness their own strengths and weakness to work for, not against, goals. As 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself unfolds, Chandler explains how to beat procrastination, tackle formidable projects, plan each day (thereby planning years) to create a productive and rewarding life. He warns against pessimism and finger-pointing. In the chapter Turn your mother down, he writes, “…blaming someone never self-motivates because it strengthens the belief that your life is being shaped by forces outside yourself.” This is a key message throughout the book. Chandler continually reminds his readers that they have the power to build their lives. Some chapters may strike readers as clichéd versions of popular self-help advice, while other chapters may produce an “aha moment.” Each chapter may be read on its own, and readers may return again and again to the little nuggets of insight for renewed inspiration when resolve is flagging. Taken as a whole, 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself provides concrete ways to ignite the passion and creativity necessary to achieve goals.
