I AM LEAVING...BYE"Interpreting the right-to-die within the right-to-life is contentious," said Rosh, "While one can choose not to exercise one's right-to-life (a right explicitly protected in NZ) or choose to commit suicide (which is legal in NZ) etc., one's right-to-life does not extend to allowing someone else to take one's life."

"Voluntary consent is therefore not a universally valid defence for murder."

"However, I agree that it is important that suffering should not be prolonged unnecessarily."

why so serious"Time magazine recently named six inspirational young people in its first class of next generation leaders. People, it said, who are leaders of tomorrow because they are working hard to change their worlds today."

"A 28-year-old Indian architect, Alok Shetty, is one of them. Why? Because of his pioneering work in designing affordable flood-proof houses for slum dwellers."

Insurance“Since the cost of replacing floor coverings in most of the separate areas was individually less than my policy excess, they declined to pay most of the replacement cost on the grounds that each individual event within my claim was uneconomical."

See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil“They can act as judge, jury and executioner. Their heavy handed actions can ruin the lives of the very people that pay their premiums.”

“Ruined because of a slip. Ruined because an allegation was made. Or ruined because someone dared demand that their contract be respected.”
