Anna Esther Svidersky (April 26 1988 - April 20 2006)
was a teenager who lived in the U.S. city of Vancouver Washington, and was murdered while working in a McDonalds restaurant, by schizophrenic sex offender David Barton Sullivan.
News of her death quickly spread worldwide, initially through the Internet friends site MySpace, where she had a personal page, and then through other similar sites. This created an effect of mass collective grief and mourning for her, mostly from people who had previously known nothing about her. It has led to the creation of memorial web pages and memorial online videos, one of which has been viewed over 3,000,000 times.
In Britain 'The Gurdian' newspaper compared the widespread expression of grief by strangers to that seen after the death of Princess Diana. The paper cited the 2004 Civitas think-tank, which described such grief as "mourning sickness", related to people's own emotional needs, rather than any real rapport with the deceased.

Ok the story IS very powerful as it contains the element of originality but its fuckin twisted!!
Mourn over a person you do not know seems unquestionably fake.
Microvitum is a philosophy of life being promoted by Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar. Microvita is a unified field philosophy that attempts to explain the origin and development of life. The concept of microvita attempts to explain phenomena such as how life travels through the universe faster than the speed of light, how a single cell can replicate into a complex organism, or how a genius acquires superconscious skills.
- Perhaps another philosophy based truly on what we want to hear?
- Can logic overcome the need of extraordinarity in our everyday lives?
- And if it does, will that make us more perceptive or will it simply take away our hopes of difference in ways not possible to achieve today?
"Η συναισθηματική νοημοσύνη περικλείει την ικανότητα να αντιλαμβάνεσαι με ακρίβεια, να εκτιμάς και να εκφράζεις το συναίσθημα, την ικανότητα να αναδύεις και να γεννάς συναισθήματα όταν αυτά βοηθούν τη σκέψη, την ικανότητα να καταλαβαίνεις το συναίσθημα και την συναισθηματική γνώση, και την ικανότητα να ελέγχεις τα συναισθήματα ώστε να προωθείς τη συναισθηματική και διανοητική ανάπτυξη".
