Elvis Presley biography- Elvis Presley Death by Gen Wright

If there is one person on the planet who hasn't heard something or other about the death of Elvis Presley, I would be inclined to ask what planet they came from.

It doesn't matter whether you were born well after The King died, or whether you were one of his biggest fans, standing and screaming in the front row. The fame that surrounds Elvis Presley is immense and has not and will not die down.

Part of that fame derives from The King's death itself. Although that sounds horrific, the way in which Elvis died and the many conspiracy theories that surround the death have lead to a massive interest in the brilliant singer that has transcended through generations.

Everyone has heard that The King died when in the bathroom and that he had been addicted to prescription drugs and his issues that he had with food all possibly contributed to his untimely death.

As the news spread around that Elvis was dead, thousands of his dedicated fans flocked to Elvis' home to pay their last respects. But more tragedy even followed The King's death.

As the mourners lined the street outside Graceland a car crashed into the sobbing fans and killed two women and seriously injured another. It seemed as though the tragedy just highlighted the loss that the world felt for the death of one of the greatest singers and the trail blazers that lead the way for many of the super stars of today.

The last ever photo taken of Elvis Presley was when he was in his open casket coffin. One of his cousins was paid a remarkable sum to take a photo of the legend in his coffin. Some may say that this was disrespectful, but once it appeared in the paper, it sold millions of copies.

The death of Elvis Presley is still big news today due to the fact that no one is really sure what he died of. By the time of his death, Elvis had ballooned and looked like a bloated and expanded version of his younger slim and sexy self.

Reportedly Elvis gorged himself on huge sub sandwiches packed with bacon, jam and peanut butter. It is sad that Elvis ate around 85,000 calories a day. Many people suggest that the pressure Elvis' body placed on his heart was too much of a strain.

Another possible contribution to his death was his relationship with prescribed drugs. Apparently Elvis had his first taste of uppers from those which he stole from his mother Gladys, and then later had a whole array from his doctor, feeling that if they were prescribed drugs, then he did not have an addiction.

Irregular heartbeats were also mentioned as to why he died. Many people obviously just see this as a cover story to protect the once great singer.

An Entrepreneur and a Life To Be Remembered by TimKnox

I was reminded of my own mortality today. I guess you can say I had a near death experience, though the death I experienced was not my own.

No, I was never in any danger, nor was my life ever threatened. In fact, I was sitting in the air conditioned comfort of my home office sipping a nice cup of coffee and watching the dogs run around the yard when the moment came.

The sun was shining. The birds were chirping. Life was going along just fine.

Death was the furthest thing from my mind.

Then the news came that Corey Rudl had been killed in a high speed crash at a race track in California. At the moment of his death at the young age of 34, Corey was a passenger in a Porsche that hit a retaining wall at over 100 miles per hour, killing him instantly and the driver shortly thereafter. The track had been rented by a local car club so that Corey and his buddies could take their expensive, powerful cars to the track to see how fast they could go.

Corey died doing what he loved. Those closest to him say he would not have had it any other way.

Corey Rudl was not a professional race car driver. He was an entrepreneur, and one of the best of his breed.

Most of you who read this column probably have no idea who Corey Rudl was or what he accomplished during his short life, and thats OK. You also have no idea of the imprint he made on me and millions of others who make our living (at least in part) as online marketers. Again, thats OK. For all his accomplishments, those who knew him well have said that Corey was more concerned about building his businesses than being a public figure. By those accounts, Corey never really cared about being in the public limelight, even though he was probably the most visible and successful entrepreneur in his field.

Perhaps thats why Corey Rudl was so successful. He knew what was really important when it came to building a business. The limelight came easy to him, but his focus always seemed to be on making his business stronger, serving his customers better. He also knew that there was life beyond business, and he pursued that life with a passion and energy that most of us can only imagine.

Corey Rudls story is the classic entrepreneurs tale. He started his business from his kitchen table just a few short years ago selling a homemade booklet he had written on how to get the best deal on a new car. From that modest start Corey built an internet marketing empire that has generated $40 million dollars in revenue in just a few years.

Corey was the definitive internet marketing guru. He was young, energetic, and highly passionate about his business and his industry. He wrote and spoke frequently on the topics of internet marketing and business success and thats where he and I briefly crossed paths. We were both expert columnists for Entrepreneur.com and exchanged several polite emails, nothing really personal, mind you, mostly swapping compliments of each others work.

Much of Coreys time in recent years was spent teaching others how to do what he had done: build a successful online business from scratch. For a man of just 34 years, he packed in decades of expertise and knowledge and he shared it with anyone who would listen, including yours truly.

I never personally spoke or shook hands with Corey Rudl, but I was his customer, his student, and ultimately an admirer. I can attribute much of the success of my own online business to Coreys teachings and principles. He was one of those rare birds that you didnt have to meet to feel like you were on a first-name basis with him. Everyone in my little circle of internet marketing friends simply referred to him as Corey and we spoke of him warmly, as a friend and mentor. He set the bar for all of us. We wanted to achieve his level of success. We wanted to hit his heights. We wanted to be the entrepreneur that he was.

Corey had just recently married the girl of his dreams. He was a millionaire many times over. He had a big house and fancy cars and a future so bright he had to wear shades. His business was thriving. Life was perfect. Corey Rudl truly had the world by the tail and there was no chance hed ever let go. I imagine he was holding on tight until the very end.

The lessons we learn from the death of Corey Rudl are the same lessons we always learn when someone so young and vibrant is suddenly taken from us. As entrepreneurs we should take those lessons and apply them not only to our own lives, but to our businesses, as well.

Lesson One: live everyday as if it is your last, because it just might be. As entrepreneurs we often think that our businesses have to come first on our list of priorities. Its not until a tragedy reminds us that life is too short that we think about making time for the things in life that are really important. Get out from behind your desk. Go play with your kids. Hug your wife. Call your mother.

Lesson Two: be passionate about business, but never let it eclipse your passion for life. Corey was a true entrepreneur whose passion for business was unparalleled, but by all accounts he also knew that a life devoted strictly to business was a life not lived to its fullest. Corey died doing what he loved. Some will argue that his passion killed him and in a way thats true, but I have to believe that before he knew he was in danger Corey had a smile on his face a mile wide. He would not have lived his life any other way.

As I finish this column my oldest daughter has come in to ask if Id like the honor of taking her out to Sunday brunch. Shes seventeen now. She has a job, a car, and a life that is very much her own. Chances to be graced with her presence grow rarer with each passing week. Still, any other day I might have weighed her invitation against the eight million business-related things that need my attention.

Today, however, the decision is easy.

I usually end my column with the words, Heres to your success.

This week let me end with, Heres to your life.

Dawkins on Haiti - Robertson True to Christian Theology? by Rev Michael Bresciani

Dawkins starts his article by side stepping the usual requirements and protocol for standard article submission. His name appears before and after the title. He follows that with bold article sub headings and bold parenthetical statements made for effect, (emphasis) all that remains after that is the Dawkins style of solipsistic banality for which he is so noted. Most authors would have their articles rejected out of hand regardless of content if they broke this many rules.

Let me begin with my own take on Haiti by saying in no uncertain terms that regardless of what caused this disaster we must all do everything we can to help relieve the misery of these islanders for humanities sake. The stories out of Haiti are compelling and this kind of tragedy is calling for people with heart to respond regardless of their theology or the lack of it. I’m sure the last thing on the minds of those rescued, relieved or restored is the theology of those who gave them aid.

The article entitled â€Richard Dawkins: Haiti and The Hypocrisy of a â€Bankrupt’ Christian Theology†is followed by an emboldened header that says â€We know what caused the catastrophe in Haiti. It was the bumping and grinding of the Caribbean Plate rubbing up against the North American Plate: a force of nature, sin-free and indifferent to sin, un-premeditated, unmotivated, supremely unconcerned with human affairs or human misery.â€

Just the words â€We know what caused the catastrophe in Haiti†reek of prior philosophic postulation and are all too much like the description of the big bang alleged to have taken place some 400 million years ago which no mortal witnessed. The North American and Caribbean tectonic plates are estimated to be some 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) deep but that depth does not keep Dawkins from speaking with full pomposity about what took place on the fateful day the quake of 7.0 magnitude began to rumble across the little Caribbean island.

To be truthful exactly what happened 15 miles beneath the earth on that day is as speculative as deciding that God doesn’t like the pact the Haitians are reported to have made with the devil. Science has no leg on either assertion and should stay out of it entirely. But to be fair if the prophetic record is called into play then the theology of God’s judgments by means of natural disasters or catastrophes is on much firmer ground.

Dawkins claims the shifting plates were an indifferent â€force of nature.†How does an atheist assign the word â€force†to nature, randomness, or disorder and argue that an intelligent God would not use force for any purpose at all. It seems they are satisfied to say that nature which has no intelligence can use force but God who is supremely intelligent is impotent. To borrow a phrase from the Apostle Paul it would seem that Mr. Dawkins and his fellows are simply â€beating the air.†(1Cor 9:26)

All of this naturally leads to the question of whether Pat Robertson was correct. Unless Pat or some other person with a certified prophetic ministry and calling was forewarned that this was God’s intention then the question is forever moot. We cannot know. All we can know for sure is that God retains supreme authority over the affairs of men and he will not yield one iota of that power to an entire civilization, a single nation or an individual even if it is one of the world’s most notable atheists.

On a personal level I wonder what Dawkins or anyone else for that matter will say when every major city in the world is toppled by a worldwide earthquake at the close of the rule of the antichrist.

â€And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.†(Rev 16:18-19)

Suffice it to say that the Bible’s prophetic record is bolstered by its historical record. If God said a nation would rise, it did. If he said a nation would fall, it did. If he said Jewry would be dispersed throughout the world, they were. If he said they would be gathered back into Israel just before the last days, they have been since the British Mandate of 1948. If he says the antichrist will rule for seven years over a new revived European empire then look around because it is at the doors.

It takes a great deal more faith for most people to believe in a 400 million year old speculation, un-witnessed by anyone than the straight up prophetic/historical record of the bible.
