Death and Dying: Personal Goals at End of Life
An alarming -- but not altogether surprising -- recent study shows that far too often, patients in
intensive care receive what their own doctors judged to be "futile care." Published in JAMA
Internal Medicine, the study of five intensive care units across a Los Angeles health care system
found that nearly 20 percent of patients, one in five receive "futile" or "probably futile" treatment.
In the study, doctors said they frequently provided care that did not meet patients' goals.
"Treatment that cannot achieve a patient's goals or that simply maintains a state such as ICU
dependence or permanent coma is contrary to professional values, inappropriately uses health
care resources, and creates moral distress," concluded the study.

Seven Cemeteries Stranded in Parking Lots
For most people parking lots are no slice of heaven and can sometimes seem worse than any
circle of hell, but for others these concrete sprawls are where they spend their eternities. While
most cemeteries are constructed as a sacred space separating the worlds of the living and the
dead, these two worlds collide when a final resting place is in the path of progress. With much of
their surroundings of statues and greenery replaced by hood ornaments and hubcaps, these
stranded grave sites stand as a stark reminder of a nearly forgotten and paved-over past.

Two Women Sunbathe in Cemetery atop Gravestone, Sparking
Two women have sparked a flurry of outrage in Australia, after they were spotted sunbathing
atop a gravestone in a cemetery located just meters away from Glenmaggie lake.

The incident began when the two women, who are believed to be in their 40s, were
photographed laying atop a couple’s grave in Glenmaggie Cemetery clad only in bikinis,
according to the Daily Mail. Located in Eastern Victoria, the cemetery sits next to a caravan
park, where Seven News reports that the sunbathers were staying. The pair refused to comment
when approached by a reporter for the news outlet.

Under gray skies and a light rain, New York City offered a final salute to Wenjian Liu, the NYPD
officer who was murdered with fellow Officer Rafael Ramos as they sat in their squad car on a
Brooklyn street.

Liu, 32, was on the force seven years when he was murdered on December 20, just two months
after he was married. Liu’s wife, parents and other family members were joined by thousands of
NYPD officers at Aievoli Funeral Home in Dyker Heights for the funeral service.

Msgr. Robert J. Romano, an NYPD chaplain, opened the service with a Buddhist saying: "When
you are born, you cry, and the world rejoices. When you die, you rejoice, and the world cries."
