Swedish debut author Margareta Magnusson wants you to tidy your house and think about death.

It might sound like a rather gloomy way to spend a weekend, but Magnusson – who describes herself as "between 80 and 100 years old", says she has spent the last 40 years cleaning her home in preparation for her death, and that she has "got a lot of pleasure out of it".
The uniquely Swedish practice of 'Döstädning' (death-cleaning) is a method of decluttering based on which objects will be of value to loved ones after your death.
"My motto for cleaning is simply: If you don't love it, lose it. If you don't use it, lose it," Magnusson told The Local. "My death cleaning ha

if you love marie kondo, swedish death cleaning may be for you

My husband and I are avid antique shoppers and like to joke that when we die (hopefully many, many decades from now!), we're setting our neighbors up for one of the best estate sales of all time. Who wouldn't want a primitive jelly cabinet with a slightly busted corner? Or a six-pack of canned, expired emergency water?
Of course, we say that in the same breath we take to complain about eventually having to clean our parents' houses when they pass. It's a little morbid, we know, but we're not so much focused on their deaths as we are talking about just how much stuff they have managed to stuff into their suburban New Jersey homes.
Why am I telling you this? Because I just stumbled upon an upcoming book that gave me pause: The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning: How to Free Yourself and

trump advocates death penalty for drug dealers at pennsylvania rally

President Donald Trump was in full-on campaign mode on Saturday night. It was supposed to be a rally for struggling GOP candidate Rick Saccone but Trump ended up delivering one of his signature rambling speeches where he praises himself constantly while bashing Democrats and the media. He, of course, seemingly also couldn’t help but talk once again about his election victory 16 months ago.
During one of his tangents, Trump talked positively about the death penalty for drug dealers. It was not the first time he discussed the idea but with his words he seemed to confirm a Washington Post story from Friday that said the White House was considering a new policy that would allow prosecutors to seek the death penalty for drug dealers. On Saturday night, Trump repeatedly said he didn’t know whet

trump urges death penalty for drug dealers

Washington: Drug dealers kill people, destroy families and might deserve the death penalty or life in prison for their crimes, President Trump says.Trump, speaking at a rally in Pennsylvania for congressional candidate Rick Saccone, said he got the idea from the leaders of China and Singapore. The US criminal justice system, Trump said, is too soft on drugs.

And they don't even put you in jail," Trump said. "That's why we have a problem, folks. I don't think we should play games."Trump said he recently asked the president of Singapore i

the 'unexpectedly positive' experience of dying

"I want more time with Jason. I want more time with my children. I want more time sipping martinis at the Green Mill Jazz Club on Thursday nights. But that is not going to happen. I probably have only a few days left being a person on this planet."When Amy Krouse was on her deathbed, writing an open letter to her husband's future partner, what was striking was the lack of fear.
Reflecting on the ephemeral nature of life can bring our priorities into perspective. Photo: StocksyRather, the letter was a celebration, full of tenderness, reflecting on a life filled with love and imperfection; it was striking in her acceptance that she was nearing the end of her story and was ending it filled with love and peace with what was to come.Our fear of death is often so deep that it is said to be ult

lower courts handed more death sentences

While local courts handed 136 death sentences last year, almost twice the numbers given in 2015, acquittals by higher courts tripled, a new study has found. The “Death Penalty in India: Annual Statistics 2016” prepared by the Delhi-based National Law University (NLU) also said that there are 397 prisoners on the death row in India.The country’s sessions courts appeared more inclined to award death sentences as there was a 94% rise in death penalties in 2016, a substantial jump compared to 2015 when there were only 70 judgements awarding the capital punishment. Also, considering the significant number of acquittals and commutations by the higher courts, questions have been raised over the local courts’ rationale in handing death sentences. In 2016, high courts commuted 44 death sentences, a

death penalty: remembering scharlette holdman 'angel of death row'

She was called “the Angel of Death Row” more than a few times in her life, but Scharlette Holdman was not everyone’s idea of angelic. She had a salty tongue and a wicked sense of humor and a temper that once moved her to pick up a typewriter and heave it at a door. She had a rebellious streak so wide that it really wasn’t even a streak. Distrusting and opposing authority was more like the core of her being. Because authority exercises no greater power than the power to kill, Holdman focused her enormous rebellious energy on thwarting the state’s power to kill.After more than four decades defending some of the most notorious—and some of the most faceless—killers in America, Holdman died July 12 at the age of 70, a fighter to the end. Although 70 is not particularly old, it might have surpri

life is short, so cause some chaos in death coming

Visually, Death Coming features beautiful pixel art that reminds me of various Kairosoft games, as well as the opening sequence for the HBO show, Silicon Valley. Despite going with a pixelated aesthetic, Death Coming manages to pack in a ton of detail for the various environments and characters. It also utilizes a top-down isometric perspective, as you're essentially like a god...of death. This makes it easy to see everything in a single glance, and you can zoom in freely with multitouch gestures. The frame rate for the game is smooth and fluid, with no issues of lag or choppiness on my iPhone 8 Plus. The soundtrack is oddly upbeat and quirky considering the dark nature of the game, but that just makes it more humorous to me. Plus the sound effects are delightful.You're just an average old

godhra train burning not an act of 'terrorism' or 'act of war': guj hc

Gujarat High Court, that had on Monday commuted the death sentence for 11 convicted in the incident of Sabarmati Express coach burning in 2002 near Godhra which saw 57 persons were charred to death, has ruled that it was neither “terrorism” nor an “act of waging war” against the state.

tom gallo's 'tell me the ghost' video: watch

Signer/songwriter Tom Gallo has always been contemplating the meaning behind death, love and loss since he was a kid, and now turns these ideas in to haunting songs. Gallo just released a new single and video, which is being exclusively premiered on Billboard today (Feb. 23).“Tell Me The Ghost” is the title track off of Gallo’s upcoming album, due April 27.

this is how the vampire diaries was originally supposed to end

Fans are still reeling after that major death in the series finale of The Vampire Diaries. After eight seasons and 171 episodes of heartbreak, death, and vampire angst, you'd think we would have been used to the pain, but the finality of the character in question's selfless decision left us cold. However, according to showrunner Julie Plec, the ending could have been even more brutal. In a post-finale interview with Entertainment Weekly, Plec revealed the finale idea she and cocreator Kevin Williamson conceived years ago during Season 2 — and why it all had to change after star Nina Dobrev's departure from the show. (If you don't want to know how The Vampire Diaries ended, you should probably look away now.) The CWIn the episode's final act, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) sacrificed himsel
