‘A former Catholic archbishop charged with sexually abusing children has died ahead of his trial.

Jozef Wesołowski, 67, was found dead in his room – seemingly from natural causes – in the Holy See on Friday morning, a statement from the Vatican said.

“Vatican authorities intervened immediately for first verifications, which indicate his death was due to natural causes,” the statement, posted on the Vatican press website, said.’

‘Shocking claims in a new royal biography claim the Queen responded to reports of Princess Diana’s car crash in Paris by saying ‘someone must have greased the brakes’.

Diana was killed in the crash in August 1997 – triggering national mourning and some criticism of the Royal Family’s unemotional reaction to the tragedy.

A new book by royal biographer Ingrid Seward claims the Queen made the remark after she initially heard news Diana had been injured in a crash.’

Unlawful Killing – The Death of Princess Diana



‘A new attempt to legalise assisted dying has proposed ‘suicide courts’ in which judges will decide on whether desperately sick patients can be helped to end their lives.

A bill to go before MPs next month proposes that High Court judges should have the power to rule on whether someone who is terminally ill can demand to be killed by their doctor.

It gives judges just two weeks to examine the evidence and make their ruling – a deadline that critics said yesterday is far too short.’

‘End-of-life care guidelines are ‘dangerous and wrong’ and could be even more disastrous than the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway they replaced, an expert claims.

Patients could find themselves in an early grave thanks to the new NHS rules, which could leave staff to ‘guess’ which are dying and hasten their death, he said.

Professor Patrick Pullicino, a leading critic of the Liverpool Care Pathway, said the latest proposals from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence were ‘totally wrong and very misleading’ on the crucial subject of patient hydration.’

‘However, the scientist has recently started to deal with physics, quantum mechanics and astrophysics. This interesting mix created the theory of biocentrism, which the professor now engaged. Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness are the basis of the universe and that consciousness creates the material universe, and not vice versa.

Lanza indicates the structure of the universe and how that the laws and constants of the forces of the universe are tuned for life, suggesting that intelligence existed before matter.

He also claims that space and time are not objects or things, but tools of our animal understanding. Lanza says that we actually carry space and time with us as turtles wear their armor, meaning that we exist even outside of time and space.’

‘A grieving father yesterday called for the Army to be put on trial over his son’s death on a gruelling SAS march.

Corporal James Dunsby, 31, was one of three reservists to suffer fatal heat exhaustion.

His father David said the whole of the military was responsible for the failures that led to the catastrophe in the Brecon Beacons.

When medics reached Cpl Dunsby his body temperature was 105.8F – the highest they had ever seen.’

‘Recently, an editorial in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society cited “disease-mongering” of testosterone to men for conditions for which it is not approved. Increasingly low libido, obesity and other age-related changes are attributed to “Low T” or low testosterone.

This spring, I interviewed a coauthor of the editorial, Thomas Perls, a professor of medicine and director of the New England Centenarian Study at Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine. He defined disease-mongering as “inventing new broader definitions of a disease or even the invention of a disease in conjunction with widespread marketing to increase sales of specific drugs and therapies.”’

‘Terminally ill welfare claimants are being asked by benefit assessors when precisely they are expected to die, according to evidence seen by Frank Field, the newly elected chairman of the work and pensions select committee.

Field has written to the work and pensions secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, asking for an explanation. He told the Guardian: “There is absolutely no need for this level of intrusive and painful questioning by DWP officials. If I have had two such cases in my constituency in recent weeks; I dread to think how often this is happening around the country.”

The Labour MP for Birkenhead said one of the complaints had come to him from a vicar on behalf of his sister.’

‘Humankind has long dreamed of immortality. Surely, somewhere, Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth awaits, allowing us to escape our inevitable fate of non-existence. Not surprisingly, some very wealthy tech executives are determined to buy their way out of that inevitability. These guys are living the high life and they don’t want it to stop.

Peter Thiel, the founder of PayPal, is worth somewhere north of $2 billion, and a member in good standing of the one-percent club that is projected to control half the planet’s wealth by next year. While economic inequality does not appear to weigh on him, other forms do. “Probably the most extreme form of inequality is between people who are alive and people who are dead,” he told the New Yorker recently. His thoughts on death? “Basically, I’m against it,” he told the Telegraph newspaper.’
