    __________________________________________________________

    <span style="color:yellow"> Death: 1. The end of life. The cessation of life. (These common definitions of death ultimately depend upon the definition of life, upon which there is no consensus.) 2. The permanent cessation of all vital bodily functions. (This definition depends upon the definition of "vital bodily functions.") See: Vital bodily functions. 3. The common law standard for determining death is the cessation of all vital functions, traditionally demonstrated by "an absence of spontaneous respiratory and cardiac functions." 4. The uniform determination of death. The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws in 1980 formulated the Uniform Determination of Death Act. It states that: "An individual who has sustained either (1) irreversible cessation of circulatory and respiratory functions, or (2) irreversible cessation of all functions of the entire brain, including the brain stem is dead. A determination of death must be made in accordance with accepted medical standards." This definition was approved by the American Medical Association in 1980 and by the American Bar Association in 1981.

    Death is the cessation of the biological functions that define living organisms. It refers both to a specific event and, particularly in humans, to a condition the true nature of which it has for millennia been a central concern of the world's religious traditions to penetrate.[1] Numerous factors can cause death: predation, disease, habitat destruction, senescence, conflict, malnutrition, for example, or mere accidents resulting in terminal physical injury. Principal cause of death in people in developed countries is disease precipitated by aging. The chief concern of medicine has been to postpone and avert death. Precise medical definition of death, however, becomes more problematical, paradoxically, as scientific knowledge and technology advance.

    death
    n.
    1. The act of dying; termination of life.
    2. The state of being dead.
    3. The cause of dying: Drugs were the death of him.
    4. A manner of dying: a heroine's death.
    5. often Death A personification of the destroyer of life, usually represented as a skeleton holding a scythe.
    6.a. Bloodshed; murder.
    b. Execution.
    7. Law Civil death.
    8. The termination or extinction of something: the death of imperialism.

    Everyone can enter, only people who have had entries in the last 3 normal sig of the week contests are eligible for the premium prizes. if you place and do not meet the requirement you get the normal prize for that place.

    And really though, its been the same for months and months guys ;)
