  Reason Magazine - We the Living Dead
Night of the Living Dead earned a vast sum (estimated at about 250 times its budget) on the midnight movie and TV syndication circuits, and was honored at the Museum of Modern Art and preserved by the Library of Congress.
Even in considering a film as critically paved over as Night of the Living Dead, Newitz manages a fresh insight: that the late Duane Jones’ doomed hero is not only an African American but clearly marked as a bourgeois achiever of the civil rights era, sporting loafers, a dress shirt, and an admirable work ethic.
In all those examples, though, the dead remain mute, an undifferentiated unit whose meaning is concocted by the living.

  Living Waters
Our purpose in providing this information is to convey what we see as essential to the success of a Living Waters program, the steps we take to ensure safety for participants and leaders, and the standard we expect before authorizing leaders to implement a Living Waters group in their church or ministry context.
We are encouraging our Living Waters leadership to be knit into the whole church and to move away from being seen as a specialized ministry group with its own specialized training and its own specialized standards.
Church Covering: Living Waters is meant to function under the covering of the local church, one which values and administers the healing of persons.

 Rumors of the Constitution's death are exaggerated. - By Jack M. Balkin - Slate Magazine
The specific metaphor of a living, evolving Constitution arose in the 1920s to explain how a broad view of federal power that came with World War I (and later, the New Deal) was consistent with the American constitutional tradition.
A living Constitution requires that judges faithfully apply the constitutional text, given the meanings the words had when they were first enacted, applying those words to today's circumstances.
Living constitutionalists draw upon precedent, structure, and the country's history to flesh out the meaning of the text.

 Price Compare ISBN 0786102594 We the Living by Ayn Rand - Direct Textbooks   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Howevever, 'We the Living' is for anyone in any time or place who wants to transform their lives from existence to life or, as the Greek philosopher's would say, from bios to zoe.
What is misunderstood is her application of the word selfishness, which is, in essence, the prerequisite to valuing the lives of others as well as understanding the pleasure and pain principles that underlie mankind's existence.
Ultimately, We the Living is the story of the fragile, indomitable spirit of man: no matter what they face, Kira, Leo, and Andrei maintain individuality and spirit, yet Communism erodes their power and makes their goals impossible to achieve.

 Independent Living Institute
Independent Living does not mean that we want to do everything by ourselves and do not need anybody or that we want to live in isolation Independent Living means that we demand the same choices and control in our every-day lives that our non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends take for granted.
Few of us live in the community with community based services, which also are not a guarantee for a life with self-determination and dignity.
The international Independent Living Movement demands that disabled people need to enjoy the same degree of interdependence within the family that is common for non-disabled siblings, friends and neighbors.

 Living and Raw Foods: Should we eat living foods or cooked foods?
Live food eaters feel better and are often in a state of euphoria.
Living food eaters are less subject to stresses and nervous tensions than conventional eaters.
Cooked foods quickly ferment and putrefy in the intestinal tract while living foods are almost totally absorbed before they're oxidized enough for yeast and bacterial ferments and putrefaction.

I was truly drawn into all of her novels, however We The Living made clear to me the problems in her later novels-- in the later novels, Ayn Rand ceased to consider plot and character as useful ends unto themselves, and began utilizing them solely as mechanisms by which to disseminate her philosophy.
We the Living is strong because her characters struggle to maintain the heroic integrity she assigns them.
If Ayn Rand's goal was to present to the world a philosophy for man to live by on earth, We The Living is the only one of her fictional novels in which the plot and character are believable enough to have have existed on this earth.

 Are We Living in the Last Days?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
This is not the case, just as in our own lives there are many endings: there is the end of the work day, the end of the day according to the clock, the end of the week, the end of the month, and the end of the year.
We see that there are at least four clear references in the New Testament that use end times vocabulary to refer to their own day and the entire church age as the last days.
Thus, in that sense, we are clearly living in the last days, since the entire church age is considered the last days.

They want to live their lives and are struggling to do just that in a country that will not allow it.
We the Living is a novel that examines the problems of Communism and its ideals, as well as illustrating the people whose lives are impacted by it.
I have an idea in my imagination of what it might mean to the human character to live in times like these and the novel followed this --but, even when the story took an unexpected turn, it still made sense that a character could react in the way he/she did to the situation at hand.

 Living a lie
The impact of living a lie can be felt across the board now, reflecting an insecure and fear-ridden mindset that is unable to take bold, innovative policy measures.
It is time we really examined whether Jinnah's Pakistan was a state for the Muslims of India - where they would be free to live and practice their way of life - or whether it was intended to be a theocratic state.
With the departure of the Soviets from Afghanistan, the divergence of US-Pakistan interests was continuously being exposed but our ruling elite continued to live the lie of a convergence of interests so that we tended to push forward an Afghan policy jointly authored by Islamabad and Washington.

The struggle of a young woman to live her own life despite being trapped in a state-controlled society, was a story that moviegoers could easily relate to in Facist-run Italy.
So WE THE LIVING, a story that Ayn Rand described "as close to an autobiography as will ever write," was put into production in early 1942 without permission from the author and without compensation to her - without even her knowledge.
The new version of WE THE LIVING received its world premiere at the Telluride Film festival in Colorado in 1986—the first public showing of the film outside of Italy since World War II.

The films were made without the authorization, input, involvement, or, in fact, knowledge, of Ayn Rand author of the underlying work, "We The Living".
Rand granted literary rights and authorized a new film version of "We The Living" to be created out the films on the condition that several significant changes were made.
Because of this, "We The Living", released in 1986, is significantly different from the two unauthorized films.

 Wired News: Jacket Grows From Living Tissue
The duo plans to grow a nose, lips and a shape of the eyes, connecting them to form a living mask that would either imitate a face or represent a mutation of it.
While there's still lots of research to be done before a fully formed live jacket can be created, the artists are quick to point out that they aren't interested in creating commercial products or even furthering scientific research.
Calling themselves conceptual artists who create working prototypes, they say their aim is to bring to the forefront the philosophical implications of making living organisms tools for our own purposes.

Whether for the rather didactic and lengthy sermons that populate most of the plots of her novels, or her own theories which tend to be underdeveloped and difficult to understand, she is not the most popular author or person in the philosophical realm.
We the Living, however, is a book that one must read in order to change the perception of Rand doing what she does best: writing fiction.
Ayn Rand said that "We the Living" was the closest she would ever come to writing an autobiography.

So, a living Master is the one who is assigned to do their past work in the present time.
Why we didn't go to a past Master from many hundreds of years ago was because we didn't make a connection with him while he was living, therefore the connection was not made.

 Are You Living in a Computer Simulation?
Those who believe suitably programmed computers could enjoy conscious experience of the sort we enjoy must accept the possibility that their own experience is being generated as part of a computerized simulation.
The first part of this paper is devoted to broadening the scope of the argument: even if computers cannot sustain consciousness (as many dualists and materialists believe), there may still be a strong likelihood that we are living simulated lives.
We explain why, if we live in a simulated reality, we might expect to see occasional glitches and small drifts in the supposed constants and laws of Nature over time.
