'Sorry, ' she said, 'it's just I've never met anyone famous before.' 'Sorry, ' I replied, 'you still haven't.' In 2008, the media reported that Alex Day was the first person in the UK to make money from YouTube videos. He was described as 'a YouTube star'. But he didn't feel like one. Alex watched as his channel grew, leading him to a YouTube party in Sydney, a video convention in Los Angeles and a world record attempt in London. He signed up to new sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. But as his professional life flourished, his personal life unravelled when a series of damning blog posts exposed his past and left him with no friends and no home -- and no audience. How would you cope if your worst mistakes were written up and torn apart by thousands of strangers, right before your eyes? A book about ambition, failure and responsibility, Living and Dying on the Internet is a timely and unparalleled look into the evolution of YouTube, the culture of public shaming and an insightful account of how the internet has changed -- and changed us -- over the last ten years.

This fascinating account of daily life in Westminster Abbey, one of medieval England's most important monastic communities is also a broad exploration of some major themes in the social history of the Middle Ages, by one of its most distinguished historians. - ;This is an authoritative account of daily life in Westminster Abbey, one of medieval England's greatest monastic communities. It is also a wide-ranging exploration of some major themes in the social history of the Middle Ages and early sixteenth century, by one of its most distinguished historians. Barbara Harvey exploits the exceptionally rich archives of the Benedictine foundation of Westminster to the full, offering numerous vivid insights into the lives of the Westminster monks, their dependants, and their benefactors. She examines the charitable practices of the monks, their food and drink, their illnesses and their deaths, the number and conditions of employment of their servants, and their controversial practice of granting corrodies (pensions made up in large measure of benefits in kind). All these topics Miss Harvey considers in the context both of religious institutions in general, and of the secular world. Full of colour and interest, Living and Dying in England is an original and highly readable contribution to medieval history, and that of the early sixteenth century. - ;By one of the greatest authorities on the subject -

To live well one must be able to die well and vice versa. Life and death are two faces of the same coin but with a fundamental transformation when one moves from the spiritual dimension to the physical and back to the spiritual. Actually, there is but one thing: Life without beginning and without ending but with two expressions, one on the spiritual plane and the other on the material plane. Today, in the West we find a great paradox: we have made enormous progress at the material, technological level but not at the human and psychological level. One aspect of this paradox is that we do not die well! We are afraid of death, we deny it and seek to postpone it for as long as possible at an enormous human and economic cost. The spiritual tradition always had very substantial cognitive and practical contributions to make to our understanding of life, death, and life after death. The basic objective of this book is to present these contributions and help us die with more dignity and less fear. In fact, this work was written to help you live and die without fear, anxiety, guilt, blame or frustration with an appreciation and gratitude for all our human experiences which include birth, life and death.

The author Mwanandeke Kindembo, focused on answering some crucial questions asked by different people. Therefore, he decided to combine all the minds into One by giving general answers upon each question posed. These answers are his own opinions based upon what he experienced in life. In other words, “feel think” instead of “think feel”. These answers were provided to act as motivational as well as illuminating the minds instead of arousing only. It is unknown whether he is a naturalist, idealist or realist. But the answers seem to offer that first-hand experience instead of mere facts that doesn’t lead anywhere. It’s given therefore upon the reader to decide on his/her own conclusion of this little book of questionnaires. Instead of focusing on the famous sentence “arise, ye who are dead”. The author focused more upon “ye who are alive, arise!” That’s the primary cause of the sub-title “The Fear of Living and Dying Young.” =============================Table of Contents============================== What They Asked Me 1 The Fear of Living and Dying Young 1 About the Author 3 Contents 4 Illustrations 5 Introduction 7 Questions & Answers 10 Happiness 12 Knowledge Seeking 20 Self-Realisation 41 Life Advice 50 Success 67 Philosophy 73 Psychology 77 Motivation 93 Mind 109 Finance 118 History 120 Religion 124 Summary 138 For more information check out the links below. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Google Search: https://g.co/kgs/mBKZoJ Official website: https://www.mwanakin.com/ Motivation Quotes: https://bit.ly/33E1xnv

Make a new church. That's the challenge Chuck Meyer lays down for readers. He writes that the institutional church we know so well is dying. In fact, it may already be dead. Its structure and theology make no sense today, and haven't for decades. It has ceased to be an adequate instrument for the Living God who refuses to be bound by it, to it, or in it. Dying Church, Living God is a provocative, radical look at the church as it enters the 21st century. "In the midst of all this enormous change, the Church still conducts worship services at hours based around 19th-century milking schedules...There is an incredibly deep spiritual hunger gnawing at people" that Chuck Meyer believes the church must address. Acknowledgement of the death of the church and the inevitable resurrection is both the premise and the promise of this provocative, enlightening book.
