 Chase Insurance Group - Accidental Death & Dismemberment   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Accidental Death and Dismemberment is a life insurance product that pays proceeds to your designated beneficiaries if you die or are disabled as a result of injuries caused by a covered accident (not due to an illness).
Benefits are often paid for dismemberment of limbs and fingers/ toes, as well as loss of vision.
However, since benefits are paid only in the event of a covered accident (or covered dismemberment), and not due to illness or other causes, it is generally recommended that AD and D be purchased to supplement other life or health insurance when possible, not used as a substitute for other coverage.

 Palestine’s Dismemberment
Meanwhile, behind the handshakes and smiles, Israel is proceeding with the dismemberment of Palestine, a quiet but inexorable process that unfolds almost unnoticed and with hardly a murmur of protest from any quarter.
Thanks to dismemberment, Palestine is becoming six isolated pieces, each with a population ranging from 150,000 to 400,000.
While the ugly dismemberment of Palestine proceeds, public attention in America and elsewhere is focused on happy faces and handshakes—a process that is packaged in the misleading euphemism called peacemaking.

 The Dismemberment Plan has that indefinable quality   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The Dismemberment Plan has released four full-length albums, each one the genre-bursting sum of the interests of its constituent parts.
The band thus doesn’t defy categorization so much as it refuses to be limited by it; their sound is in fact whatever happens to come from the combination of Travis Morrison’s reedy, hyper-literate vocals, Jason Caddell’s punchy guitar lines, Eric Axelson’s looping bass, and drummer Joe Easley’s freewheeling percussion.
Whether the Dismemberment Plan will ever reach the first-class and limo stage of touring, or even if they’ll simply have someone to unload their van for them, is an open question.

 TRUTH AND DISMEMBERMENT IN THE RENAISSANCE
Although the primary usage of Renaissance dismemberment involves a woman who represents Truth, this depiction is not always congruent with the imagery of tearing the body from limb to limb.
Once again, the dismemberment is meant to be a method of warning someone else against violating the laws and authority of those in charge (although the pygmies are in no way demonstrative of a divine nature and are eventually defeated).
If the dismemberment of the Gibean matron was both a warning against apostasy and the opportunity for redemption by means of recognizing and identifying Truth, then the image of Orpheus being torn to bits because of his violation of societal norms becomes an example of divine justice.

 The Dismemberment Plan [www.progweed.net]
By The Dismemberment Plan is Terrified, though, they'd blossomed into an excellent hyperactive indie-punk outfit with a taste for weirdness and experimentation.
True, the first ten songs are all more or less upbeat, but for me that just increases the power of ending the album with twelve and a half minutes of slow, quiet, pensive music -- quiet and pensive, that is, until the powerful (and non-melodramatic) crescendo of the last four minutes.
Emergency and I plays a similar role in the Dismemberment Plan's work, fusing the jerky, spasmodic post-hardcore influences of their earlier albums with the calmer, more pensive aspects of their recent work.
