By: Bob Smietana @bobsmietana Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — In the early 2000s, Jeff Sharlet was invited to live at Ivanwald, an Arlington, Va., house run by the Fellowship Foundation, the nonprofit group behind the National Prayer Breakfast.He thought the experience would fit in a book he was writing about religion in America. Instead, he stumbled into the story of a lifetime, about a secretive Christian group whose membership, largely elected officials and wealthy businessmen, has helped shaped our politics for more than 50 years.They call themselves the Family. They work behind the scenes through relationships forged at Bible studies, prayer breakfasts and private meetings with leaders from around the globe.Family members have befriended dictators such as Ferdinand Marcos, Moammar Gadhafi, Suharto – offering friendship in the name of Jesus to promote political ends. Members often did so in secret at the behest of their longtime leader, the late Doug Coe, who often told his followers, according to Sharlet, that Jesus did not come to reach the poor or the outcast, but to help the powerful.Sharlet’s books on the Fellowship, “The Family” and “C Street,” are the basis for a new five-part Netflix documentary series that traces the Fellowship’s history from its founding in 1935 by Abraham Vereide, a Methodist minister, to the 2018 National Prayer Breakfast.Religion News Service Editor-in-Chief Bob Smietana spoke by telephone recently with Sharlet and with Jesse Moss, the series’ director. The interview has been edited for clarity and length.Director Jesse Moss, left, and Jeff Sharlet chat during a production break. Courtesy photoWhat’s been the response to the series on Netflix?Sharlet: It’s been pretty tremendous. The two things I was afraid of were, one, right-wing anger. But even conservatives are saying, “Oh, this is a problem.”The other thing I was afraid of is that people would not get it. When someone like a Jerry Falwell pounds the pulpit and starts talking about “the gays” and all this kind of thing, that’s easy to understand. The Family is much smoother.So that is the good news. The bad news is that so many people are saying, ‘I didn’t realize this.’ We all need to be a little bit more literate if we’re going to hold on to this democracy.The members of the Family who appear in the series are very earnest about what they are doing. You’re not simply saying, “Look at how bad these people are.” They have a chance to explain what they are doing and why they do it.Moss: They have a point of view, and it was important to represent that point of view. Getting their cooperation was time-consuming. We only ended up with Zach Wamp and Larry Ross at the end of a long dialogue. But finding people who were still willing to talk to us and who were deeply inspired by Doug Coe and in some way, this movement — those were essential conversations for me.Doug Coe, left, meets with the Reagans in the Netflix series “The Family.” Photo courtesy of NetflixSharlet: I just had an exchange this afternoon that I thought was revealing. A member of the Family had been writing to me, very upset. She was very close to Doug Coe and she loves him and says, “How can you say these things about him.” My response is we don’t actually say too much about him.  We’ll let him do the talking and we let the record of his actions speak for themselves.And I said, look, you know, this is not an anti-Christian message. I’m not a Christian, but I’m incredibly compelled by the Christ who cares for the least of these.Her response — and this is coming from a place of deep earnestness and even hurt on her part — was that Doug served, you know, a Christ who cared for the powerful. She said that “it seems like you have some sort of problem with people in power.”Yes, I do, as a journalist whose job is to speak truth to power, as a citizen of a democracy whose job is to question power. And as someone who has been very interested in faith for a long time and been compelled by the whole history of Christian witness. Christian witness is not about cozying up to power.Do you think members of the Fellowship are after power for power’s sake? They seem to have a post-millennial motivation — we’re going to make God’s kingdom. And the way we are going to build it isn’t by democracy.Sharlet: I think you’re right about post-millennialism and that is something I have argued for a long time. That’s part of what historically has made it difficult for the press to understand their work. Secular folks, when they think of politicized Christianity, they think about rapture theology. And even now people say, those guys can’t wait till the end of the world.Russians Mariia Butina and Alexander Torshin at the 2017 National Prayer Breakfast. President Trump later spoke from the podium in the background. Photo via Facebook That’s not these guys, that’s not the project. They’re in it for the long game.I think we have to decide if that is right. Do you think preaching a gospel of American power, and anti-LGBTQ values in Romania and putting American power behind that is the right side? Do you think covering up the affairs of the powerful so that they can stay powerful is being on the right side?Moss: This tension is clearly embodied in the third episode, about the National Prayer Breakfast and in the story of Mariia Butina. Was she pure of heart and spirit when she came to the prayer breakfast? Or was she exploiting this transactional event with a network of powerful people?Is this naiveté or cynicism?  The answer is the Fellowship manages to be both.Let’s talk about naiveté. Some of these politicians have to know that when they show up at a foreign leader’s office, they are not just a brother in Christ. They are representatives of the U.S. government. But they seem to want to set that aside and say, I just love you in the name of Jesus.Moss: That contradiction is embodied in Mark Siljander, who tells his own story about trying to pray with Gadhafi. What could be wrong with that? You know, just a prayer for peace. On the other hand, Siljander was using the Fellowship to launder money and went to prison for it.Sharlet:  In their own documents, Coe, and certainly many of the political leaders, were fully aware that they were using American power to pry doors open on behalf of this particular religious project. They would be explicit about this in their correspondence. And that to me is a deeply cynical exercise.When Coe says from now on, we’re going to submerge the institution. We’re not going to use our own letterhead (to invite people to the prayer breakfast.) Use congressional letterhead so it looks like it’s coming from Congress. That’s deception. That’s just deception.“The Family” premiered recently on Netflix. Photo courtesy of NetflixI wonder if you could talk about Doug Coe’s parable of the wolf king.Sharlet: Going back way back to my days at Ivanwald, they were always sort of talking about the sheep and wolves. I remember hearing them asking, what if Christ came not for the sheep but for the wolves? This becomes more articulated in this parable of the wolf king. The idea is that the leader of the pack is the most powerful figure. And you can go to the most powerful figure and you can pry open that door and say, let’s come alongside you.The movement sought out wolf kings around the world — in Indonesia and Somalia, Guatemala and El Salvador — and lent American support to those regimes.But within the United States, they still had to work within this shape of democracy. Now at last Trump, the wolf king, has arrived at home. And it doesn’t matter that he’s a believer. The wolf king likes strength and you’re going to put your strength alongside his. That’s the transitional moment we see in the film that we’re in. The Family’s practices that were once mainly just overseas are now coming home.President Trump speaks during the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb. 2, 2017, in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)For those of us who report on religion in America, it’s no secret that there have been elite religious leaders for a long time who were willing to make deals with leaders they knew to be “imperfect vessels,” as the Fellowship calls them.And yet public religion always depended on, at the very least, the veneer of piety. Liberals tended to see that as hypocritical, but I think they missed that it functioned as a form of accountability. Even if they adhered to values that secular folks would find offensive or hateful, there’s still a form of accountability.Now we see white conservative evangelicalism engaging in this transactional religion with the politics of Trump in which accountability doesn’t matter. In which the ends do justify any means.I think that’s an evolution.A still featuring President Trump from the Netflix docuseries “The Family.” Image courtesy of NetflixThe Family seems to reflect the influence that business leaders have in evangelical religion. Most of the leaders are Christian businessmen or politicians, rather than clergy. And they seem to have a disdain for religion.Sharlet: That’s the ethos of “Jesus plus nothing.” And the appeal. “Oh, you haven’t read the Bible, that’s fine. Religion is too complicated.” Christ without Christianity absolves you of any responsibility for misinterpretation and allows you to do whatever you want and say it’s in Jesus’ name.It shows the way good intentions can go disastrously awry.Moss: Good people make catastrophic and terrible decisions. And bad people may even have some goodness in their hearts somewhere.Can you talk more about the Fellowship’s idea that some people are chosen by God as leaders?Author Jeff Sharlet in “The Family” on Netflix. Photo courtesy of NetflixSharlet: I mean, wouldn’t that be amazing if you got a message from God that you are chosen? Not the person next to you. You are special. You are on a special mission. And as evidence of this, you’re on a private jet and you’re meeting with a president of a foreign country and there are powerful people all around you.Everybody is crying and everybody is gentle and you say, you know what? We’re going to cut through all the crap and finally do good. Who could say no to that? Not many.Moss: When I read Jeff’s book, I love how he encountered this group kind of innocently, then his perspective shifted. I thought, how can we give the audience that experience, to see the attraction that comes from being in the small and intensely devoted group of people? It’s not hard for me to see the appeal of being in a brotherhood.For me personally, it was not till I went to visit a group in Oregon and sat with those men and they said, well, you have to be in this group if you are filming it. I’ve never participated in any kind of small group therapeutic conversation and I loved how they challenged me.They said, look at your crew. It’s all white. What’s wrong with you? And I, you know, fumbled for a response. It’s so unusual to encounter a space where people are talking honestly, in this case about race. There’s something, something here that I can relate to and I wanted to show that to the audience.Doug Coe in 2016. Coe died on Feb. 21, 2017. Photo courtesy of A. Larry RossYou show Doug Coe talking about the need for secrecy and about Nazis and you think, who is this guy? Then you see him talking one-on-one with people and he’s so gentle. How can we reconcile these two sides?Sharlet: To me, that’s not a contradiction at all. This is the naiveté of American political life. We see a man who is kind and we are willing to look away from a well-documented record of a person who, given the choice between power and a witness to the faith, chose power every single time.(Editor’s note: RNS reporter Jack Jenkins appears in the Netflix series.)

first_img More information: Spanish researchers build electric motorcycle prototype The price is not likely to deflate the interests of serious electric bike enthusiasts who, to parrot the Lightning Motorcycles company motto, believe that choosing to ride an electric motorcycle should not be a compromise. The company has focused on refining the technology of their electric bikes for best performance.The company–the result of founder Richard Hatfield getting together with engineers who shared his belief that clean tech transportation can deliver high performance–continues to work out technical challenges. Its key goal is placing electronic motorcycle technology in parity with gas-powered motorcycles.Lightning Motorcycles is especially happy with its choice of the Ener1 lithium-ion battery pack used in the record-breaking run. The driver of the SuperBike was Paul Thede, the owner of Race Tech. Thede, who has a degree in mechanical engineering from California Polytechnic University, is known as a motorcycle suspension guru. He developed the Lightning SuperBike’s suspension system. For Thede, breaking the 200 mph mark on an electric motorcycle was special not just for the numbers, he said, but because it is a step toward “green” technology. Citation: Fastest electric motorcycle tops 200 mph for world record (2011, August 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from The speeds also signify how Lightning Motorcycles broke its own 2010 record of 173 mph. The bike has a Remy HVH250 electric propulsion motor, and an Ener1 battery pack. The pack provides mileage of over 100 miles on the freeway and a combined city/highway range of 150 miles. Lightning Motorcycles is taking orders on its website for the SuperBike, with a base price set at $38,888. © 2011 Explore further ( — The Lightning Motorcycles SuperBike recently set a speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats as the world’s fastest electric bike, vrooming in at over 200 mph. Lightning Motorcycles set its newest speed coups at a record-breaking 215.960 mph with a best speed of 218.637 mph. Until this month’s triumph, no electric motorcycle had ever topped a speed of 200 mph. This document is subject to copyright.

first_imgAustralian pilots launch innovative appAustralian pilots launch innovative in-flight entertainment & flight-tracking appInflighto Pty Ltd, an Australian-based company, today announced the launch of their new in-flight entertainment and flight-tracking app, Inflighto, in the Apple App Storeand the Google Play store. The Inflighto app is the first in-flight entertainment app designed by pilots for use by airline passengers while in-flight. It combines highly-accurate ADSB flight-tracking technology and premium content to give passengers an elevated perspective of the world from the air. The Inflighto app supersedes the traditional ‘moving-maps’ currently used by airlines.Inflighto is one of the most sophisticated flight-tracking apps available. It’s the first flight-tracking app to feature geolocated points of interest, tourist destinations and events information so airline passengers can easily see flight-path highlights and identify key landmarks as they fly. This information, from premium content providers, is displayed on highly-detailed ‘moving-maps’. Furthermore, Inflighto is the only flight-tracking app to incorporate live marine vessel tracking, live weather radar, satellite images and in-flight chat. For aspiring pilots, the Inflighto app provides live flight data such as; altitude, ground-speed, vertical speed, heading and geographic location coordinates – which further uplifts the flying experience.The founders of Inflighto are two Australian pilots who are passionate about heightening the flying experience of passengers. Co-founder and commercial airline pilot John Hopkins said that the Inflighto team wanted to create an app that answered the questions most often asked of pilots from passengers; “Where are we?” and “What are we flying over?”. He said that what differentiated the Inflighto app from other flight-tracking apps was the combination of super-accurate tracking technology, premium content and unique features like live marine tracking. John said that the Inflighto team wanted to provide passengers with a better, more informative and inspiring in-flight entertainment experience than the traditional ‘moving-maps’ most airlines currently provide.Inflighto’s co-founder, Christopher Smyth said that the Inflighto app allows airlines to transition traditional, seat-back moving-maps to passengers’ own mobile devices. He said that many airlines are replacing seat-back, in-flight entertainment systems with ‘bring your own device’ solutions to reduce the cost of expensive technology installation and to save weight and fuel costs. Chris said; “The Inflighto app provides a cost-effective moving-map solution to airlines that is fully autonomous and doesn’t require integration with aircraft systems. Inflighto uses ADSB flight-tracking technology so it remains super-accurate on large airliners, at any altitude, anywhere in the world”. The Inflighto app is designed for use with in-flight Wi-Fi which is being rolled-out on commercial airlines globally, and tracks over 90,000 flights and 7,000 airlines world-wide.The Inflighto app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play as a free download. Inflighto also offers a number of paid ‘upgrades’ for users who want premium features such as live weather radar overlay – so they can see where the clouds are on the flight-path and at their destination. Co-founder John Hopkins said; “Passengers can access live weather information so they can better understand why an aircraft may be placed in a holding pattern due to severe weather or anticipate when to expect turbulence during their flight. It’s like the weather radar pilots have in the cockpit but in the palm of your hand!”.Another unique feature of the Inflighto app is In-flight Chat. This innovative feature allows passengers to chat with flight crew and fellow passengers in an open chat-room dedicated to their flight. Chris Smyth said; “Inflight Chat provides the potential for pilots and cabin crew to communicate with interested passengers about flight path highlights without using the PA system. This doesn’t disrupt other passengers who may be resting”. Inflighto also integrates with the major social media platforms to allow passengers to share flight-path images and accurate flight schedule information. Passengers can let family know their actual arrival time and even their gate number with the tap of a button.Response to the launch of the Inflighto app has been very positive with very strong downloads in both the Google Play and Apple App Store and a fast-growing user-base. “Inflighto is helping window-seat aficionados and passengers of all ages engage more with their flying experience by providing them with super-accurate information on aircraft position and key features and landmarks along their route” said John Hopkins, airline pilot and Inflighto co-founder. “If we can help passengers enjoy flying as much as we do, then our job is done!”.About Inflighto Pty LtdInflighto Pty Ltd is an Australian-based technology company formed in 2017 by two Australian pilots, John Hopkins and Christopher Smyth.

On from 13-15 June, it is this year held further ahead of the Pie Festival allowing bakers from near and wide throughout NSW and ACT to pit pie against pie in five categories, and to be able to keep up with the baking demands to have the pies available for the public at the festival later in the month,” Mr Rosa said.He continued by saying that both Destination Southern Highlands and their Pie Time Events partner, The Big Event Group, have really listened to feedback from both industry and consumers for how Pie Time 2018 could improve upon last year.“Our two-day pie festival has been re-located to the Bong Bong Picnic Racecourse in Bowral this year to accommodate a greater number of stallholders and activities and to make access and parking easier for patrons. Taking place 23-24 June, the newly branded PieFest will celebrate all things pies, wine, beer, cider and spirits from the Southern Highlands and further afield,” Mr Rosa continued.He said the local pie makers, bakers and producers from the Southern Highlands will once again take part in the other pie related events which were highly successful at last year’s Pie Time including Dine with a Pie, where visitors can sample the region’s signature pies at hotels, cafes and restaurants available only for the month of June;  a locals’ pie night; and the Pie Trail where visitors can tour and sample locally made pies from over 30 local pie outlets and pie cooking classes.“We’ll also have a range of brand new pie themed experiences in 2018 including Pie Trike Tours, Pinot and Pie tours and Pie-cycle, a cycling tour which takes in several famous pie stops throughout the Highlands,” Steve continued.For more information on Pie Time visit read more

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “But I didn’t have dreams or know that the NFL was something that could even be broached.”It will be difficult to quantify the impact Welter has had on the Cardinals, at least on the field. In terms of perception, however, her presence has certainly changed what people think of the team in a positive way. And who knows, maybe the end of her internship will not be the last we see of her with the organization.If it is, though, Welter said she leaves with “a bunch” of interactions with players she will always remember, moments and stories that will be a joy to tell. There’s also the whole Hall of Fame thing, which Welter said is “really freaking cool.”But she’s not quite ready to focus on her post-internship career. And regardless of what is in store, nothing will take away from what she has already accomplished.“I’m waiting to see what will happen next, and I’m really excited,” she said. “I consider this a complete win. The biggest question coming in was would guys in the NFL respond to a woman coaching them, and obviously that’s a ‘yes.’ So I couldn’t be more happy and that’s what I’m focusing on right now.” – / 27 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact To that point, there has not been one player who was asked about Welter who had anything bad to say.Quarterback Carson Palmer, who admittedly hasn’t had much of a chance to see how Welter has coached, said he’s talked to her a little bit.“She’s very nice, I think she’s knowledgeable from what I’ve heard, and it’s been good to have her around,” he said.Truth be told, in the time between late July, when the team added Welter to the staff, and Wednesday, when she chatted with the media, she has not really been much of a topic. She has more or less blended in with the rest of the staff.Moving forward, Welter said she would love to entertain other opportunities to stay in the NFL, and given her performance this camp, it’s possible she will be do just that. But she knows it’s not really up to her.Whether she ultimately turns this internship into a full-time gig remains to be seen, but if nothing else, Welter is excited how her time with the Cardinals has shown little girls that anything is possible, including a role in a traditionally male-dominated profession.“That is breathtaking to me,” she said. “It’s something that I never thought was possible. I was that little girl who ran around in a football helmet and got tackled by her cousins, got up, and was like, ‘Hey, let’s do it again!’ The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img Top Stories Glendale, Ariz. — The problem with dreams, you see, is that sooner or later you wake up and it all comes to an end.It holds true for all of us, including Dr. Jen Welter.A training camp coaching intern, Welter has spent her time working with the team’s inside linebackers. She said the experience has been “fantastic. The entire organization took what could have been a challenging situation and turned it into anything but. “It’s been like a dream come true, like I said,” she added. “Somebody asked me earlier if I had to pinch myself every day. Yeah, I kind of did.”Soon, though, it will be time to wake up. With training camp set to come to its conclusion, so will Welter’s internship. The first woman to hold any kind of coaching position with an NFL team, her tenure coming to an end does so with the historical context of her being a trail blazer, a pioneer.At the time of her hire, there were some who thought it was a move the team did not — and should not — make.“Everybody kept kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop,” she said. “Like, ‘oh my gosh, what’s going to happen? What’s going to go horribly wrong?’ and it really never did. All the players were really respectful.“Some came from the jump to really open their arms and welcome me,” Welter added. “I think it took others a little bit longer. But really, overall, it was fantastic. So I think that that would be the best thing is that people were waiting for the worst thing, and it wasn’t there.”A distraction she was not. This camp has shown her to be nothing more than another coach on the field who helped prepare a team that has Super Bowl aspirations. Comments   Share   “That wore off really fast, maybe two days, it was like, ‘she’s a coach’ and doing a great job,” Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said when asked if the novelty of having Welter on the staff has worn off. “All our interns have done such a fabulous job. I’d like to keep them all on a permanent basis, but it’s not possible.”In Welter’s time with the team, she has proven to be a knowledgeable and relatable football mind, someone who has been a real asset.What impressed Arians most?“Her teaching skills and her insight to the game,” Arians said. “The way she approaches it is a little bit different than a lot of people because she is female and she thinks differently, but it’s really good to have that on your staff.“The way she wrote notes to the players — they’d never even gotten notes before. She’s always done that with her players. I had a coach do that for me a long time ago, and they’re special little things that you’d never forget. It’s a really good teaching tool.”Welter said she wrote the notes between the first and second preseason games, the words coming from her heart.“It’s something that, to me, is something I would have wanted as a player,” she said. “It never occurred to me that other people weren’t doing it, and yet the feedback from all the guys was really fantastic.”last_img read more

which would have been something more severe” The three-man crew was part of an aviation regiment nicknamed the Night Stalkers that trains soldiers to fly helicopters behind enemy lines in the dark The

streamed to the frontier on the day the United States prepared to open its embassy in Jerusalem It was the highest Palestinian single-day death toll since a series of protests dubbed the “Great March of Return” began at the border with Israel on 30 March and since the 2014 Gaza war The health officials said 900 Palestinians were wounded about 450 of them by live bullets Tens of thousands gathered at the frontier on Monday some of them approaching Israel’s border fence — a line Israeli leaders vowed Palestinians would not be allowed to breach Black smoke from tyres set alight by demonstrators rose in the air “Today is the big day when we will cross the fence and tell Israel and the world we will not accept being occupied forever” said Gaza science teacher Ali who declined to give his last name Palestinian protesters burn tires during a protest on the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel AP “Many may get martyred today so many but the world will hear our message Occupation must end” he said Later in the day Israeli leaders and a US delegation including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were due to attend the opening of the embassy relocated from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem “A great day for Israel” the US president who stoked Arab anger by recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December said in a tweet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in lockstep with Trump over fulfilling a long-standing US promise to move the embassy to the holy city and over the president’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal last week echoed the sentiment “What a moving day for the people of Israel and the State of Israel” Netanyahu wrote on Twitter The 28 Palestinian dead on Monday included a 14-year-old boy a medic and a man in a wheelchair who had been pictured on social media using a slingshot The Israeli military identified three of those killed as armed militants whom it said tried to place explosives near the fence in the southern Gaza Strip The latest casualties raised the Palestinian death toll to 73 since the protests started six weeks ago No Israeli casualties have been reported “The IDF (Israel Defence Forces) will act forcefully against any terrorist activity and will operate to prevent attacks against Israelis” the military said in a statement The killings have drawn international criticism but the United States has echoed Israel in accusing Gaza’s ruling Hamas movement of instigating violence an allegation it denies “Long overdue” Jason Greenblatt Trump’s Middle East peace

Palestinians who want their own future state with its capital in East Jerusalem have been outraged by Trump’s shift from previous administrations’ preference for keeping the US Embassy in Tel Aviv pending progress in peace efforts Those talks have been frozen since 2014 Other international powers worry that the US move could also inflame Palestinian unrest in the occupied West Bank which Israel captured along with East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war The protests are scheduled to culminate on Tuesday the day Palestinians mourn as the “nakba” or “catastrophe” when in 1948 hundreds of thousands of them were driven out of their homes or fled the fighting around Israel’s creation “Choosing a tragic day in Palestinian history (to open the Jerusalem embassy) shows great insensibility and disrespect for the core principles of the peace process” Hamdallah wrote Most countries say the status of Jerusalem — a sacred city to Jews Muslims and Christians — should be determined in a final peace settlement and that moving their embassies now would prejudge any such deal But Guatemala which received support from Israel in its counter-insurgency campaigns in the 1980s plans to open an

Contact us at editors@timecom By John Miller ZURICH (Reuters) – A 104-year-old Australian scientist killed himself in Switzerland on Thursday by lethal injection in an assisted suicide he hoped would trigger more lenient euthanasia laws in his home country British-born David Goodall who was not terminally ill personally triggered a lethal dose of a barbiturate and died at 1030 GMT in a clinic near Basel the assisted suicide group Exit International said Goodall a member of the Order of Australia for work as a botanist that included publications on arid shrublands said he had unsuccessfully tried to kill himself in Australia after his faculties including his hearing deteriorated He came to Switzerland for its laws that have made assisted suicide legal since the 1940s a legal curiosity that has made the country what some call a "death tourism" magnet "My life has been rather poor for the past year or so and I am very happy to end it" Goodall told reporters on Thursday shortly before his death "All the publicity that this has been receiving can only I think help the cause of euthanasia for the elderly which I want" Physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia remains illegal in many countries including Australia though the state of Victoria became the first to pass a euthanasia bill last November to allow terminally ill patients to end their lives It takes effect in June 2019 Several family members were with Goodall until his death which was preceded by formal paperwork that visibly frustrated Goodall who said "What are we waiting for" His last meal was fish and chips and Exit International director Philip Nitschke helped organise Beethoven’s 9th Symphony to be played at his death a spontaneous request by Goodall prompted by a reporter’s question at a news conference on Wednesday "The infusion started to drip as he activated the process — he had to do that himself — after answering questions which said he knew who he was where he was and what he was about to do and he answered these questions with great clarity" Nitschke told Reuters after Goodall’s death "In fact his last words were ‘This is taking an awfully long time’ " Nitschke said Goodall a 20-year member of Exit International was born in London in 1914 and moved to Australia in 1948 where he was a lecturer at the University of Melbourne He also worked in Britain and held academic posts at US universities including at Utah State University in Logan ‘I DID MY BEST’ There news of his death prompted debate over his legacy with some former colleagues suggesting his public suicide fit a personality that did not shy the limelight Others called Goodall a fine scholar who was well-liked "If I had been asked to provide my own comments on David Goodall I would have said he is perceptive brilliant and inventive" said Robert Russon a 30-year professor at the Logan school in a letter to the Herald Journal newspaper Before his death Goodall said there were things he would have changed had he to do it all over again "I’m not satisfied with what I have done by any means" he said "But I did my best" (Reporting by John Miller in Zurich and Marina Depetris in Basel; Editing by Richard
