Fort Hare lecture notes by Prof. Z. K. Matthews about death and the claimability of compensation by defendants.
Four handwritten pages.
Death is considered an appropriate occurrence of human experience when it is not out of place according to personal and cultural norms. Whether regarding our own death or the death of others, we always refer to a complex aggregate of many ingredients or criteria of appropriateness when we label a death. It is a person’s concrete way of dying but also his or her life (one’s age, self-fulfillment and morality) that are concurrently referred to as quintessential conditions of appropriate death. Therefore, almost no death is experienced as fully appropriate.
Death Circles is comprised of five panels of cotton fabric, stretched by heavy rods on the top and the bottom of the piece, these fabrics are imprinted with circles of ants, there is also a circle of metal ants that are suspended in the last fabric.

Attendees of the panel “Penetrating Death” were treated to four wellinformed papers investigating the manner in which female bodies have been probed and evaluated by patriarchal “experts” throughout history; while tied thematically, the papers ranged widely in historical specificity, from predynastic Egypt to late Victorian England.

Broadcast Transcript: At a certain age, we all begin to feel our mortality. Here in South Korea, they're doing something about it. Test runs for death. Well, they're not really practicing dying.

It's all part of a "well-dying" course run by a district office in Seoul. The course even has a motto: Don't take life for granted. At least one person freaked a bit when the coffin lid was closed and eternal darkness descended but everybody who did the trial run climbed out of the coffin feeling more appreciative of life and their families. The whole thing puts us in mind of an old joke. How do you get to the cemetery? Practice, practice, practice. #ceas #hacker #SouthKorea

The current system creates barriers to reducing the stress and suffering that accompany a patient’s end of life. Data and eHealth technology, if it were more accessible, could help patients, families, and caregivers to cope with end of life issues.
