Important infortnation on demography, epidemiology, inter-population differences in growth, infant burial practices, and social aspects of the community can be gleaned from the study of perinatal bones. The increasing number of perinates unearthed from prehistoric sites in Southeast Asia provides a rare opportunity to investigate these issues. The high number offull-term infants represented at the site of Khok Phanom Di in Central Thailand (4000-3500 B.P.) remains an enigma. This is an important issue for bioarchaeologists as infant mortality patterns are sensitive barometers of the health and fertility of a population. This study investigated the perinatal age distributions of several chronologically spread sites in prehistoric Southeast Asia with differing subsistence modes and evidence of social complexity. Results show that the age...
In Egyptian funerary practices, trials composed a crucial phase through which the deceased had to pass in order to become “justified”—that is, worthy of entering the hereafter. The trials featured in Book of the Dead spells 18 and 20 are representative, the most popular pictorial representation of the judgment after death being the vignette of BD spell 125, the spell proper of which provides a text that summarizes Egyptian ethical standards. There is reason to consider that the text may stem from priestly initiation oaths.
How does an artist s death impact on the price of his or her works of art? We investigate this question in an infinite-horizon dynamic general equilibrium setting. Employing the open-loop Stackelberg equilibrium concept to describe the interactive behaviour of collectors and artists, we find that the art price remains at some well-defined pseudo-competitive level as long as the artist is alive. Only when the artist unexpectedly dies, the price increases on impact. This so-called death effect varies negatively with the artist s age at death. If it is well known that an artist is ailing from some terminal illness and his or her death thus does not come as a surprise, the price of the ailing artist s work increases when the news of the ailment is divulged; the price immediately jumps to the level which will prevail at the time when the ar...
For Trombone Solo. The region above 25,000 feet on mountains found mostly in Central Asia is referred to as the Death Zone. At such extreme heights, besides hypoxia, hypothermia and frostbite, the mountaineer must contend with the lethal effects of HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) when the arteries leak fluid into the lungs, and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) when fluid leaks from the oxygen-starved blood vessels cause severe swelling of the brain. As the effects of HAPE and HACE intensify, motor and mental skills deteriorate with alarming speed with a quick descent to a lower altitude the only remedy for survival. While in the Death Zone, trombone playing should be limited to no more than five minutes. written for Scott Anderson 6:00

A detailed and multidisciplinary investigation of the mechanisms underlying online life and online identity in order to understand online death, brought together in a model of ordering concepts. Points out the relevance of inquiring online death in researching online identity.
Except for the pomp and ceremony of official state funerals, death was not a prominent feature of public or official Soviet reality. The death of general secretaries and marshals and high-ranking Party members was important because it signaled change in the relationships of power. The death of leading writers, artists, or actors often attracted many mourners to their funerals, but the event was never officially advertised or televised. Otherwise, there was little visible evidence to indicate that death and funerals were a fact of Soviet life. This ethnographic article investigates the Soviet way of death in Moscow in the mid-1980s, shortly before the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The present study explored several correlates of death anxiety. Male and female students of Dutch Universities, ranging in age from 17 to 29, were given a questionnaire of which the purpose was to examine the relationship between loss experience, centrality of loss, attachment style, purpose in life, gender and death anxiety. Based on previous research, significant associations between these variables were hypothesized. Findings showed a correlation between CES and death anxiety for respondents with a loss-experience less than 14 months ago. An interaction effect of gender and loss experience was found with regard to the subscale Fear for significant others of the MFODS. Analyses failed to support the hypotheses concerning the variables loss experience, attachment style and purpose in life. The discussion related the pattern of finding...
This document details the countries and territories that carried out executions, and the countries and territories that imposed death sentences, in 2005. During 2005, at least 2,148 people were executed in 20 countries. At least 5,186 people were sentenced to death in 54 countries. These were only minimum figures; the true figures were certainly higher.
