Hans Holzer, known as the Father of the Paranormal, died Sunday at his Manhattan home after a long illness.
Dr. Hans Holzer, PhD, authored over 145 titles including Murder At Amityville, which was the basis for the 1982 film Amityville II: The Possession.
Having earned his PhD from the London College of Applied Science, he spent over five decades traveling the world to obtain first hand accounts of paranormal experiences, interviewing expert researchers, and developing parapsychological protocols and terminology such as 'sensitive' and 'beings of light'.
His daughter Alexandra Holzer says in part:
"A lover of all things of the living and of the dead with layers in-between to the unknown, my father was the pinnacle of a foundation that later on caught attention yet again with new technologies at Dr. Hans Holzer, PhD, was a former newspaper reporter and foreign correspondent who was trained to be skeptical and in that disciplined, ever-questioning mindset became one of the most noted and revered paranormal researchers the world has ever known."

Some interesting ideas came up after a discussion of Swine Flu.on the all time favorite Coast Io Coast program,,Some points:
The new outbreak of swine flu is associated with a never-seen-before strain of influenza A virus that contains DNA similar to avian, swine and human viruses. Though called swine flu, the new strain has not infected pigs. Full coverage at Reuters. Pictured is an electron micrograph of a virus from a 1976 outbreak of swine flu.
From the Newsletter
On Monday night, George Noory returned to Los Angeles and hosted a special edition of C2C with examination and analysis of the recent swine flu outbreak. 2nd hour guest, Dr. Gary Ridenour suggested that this virus could further mutate and become even more dangerous. We could see mass school closings and work outages in the U.S., he said, and in a worst-case scenario, 5-15 million people could die. He estimated there was a 40% chance that the new virus was man-made, and was released either accidentally or intentionally.
Appearing in the latter half of the show, Alex Jones and Stephen Quayle both agreed the new swine virus was not natural. It's a "genetically altered bioweapon," possibly being "beta-tested in the field" to target specific races, Quayle contended. Jones cited experts in the field, pointing toward the virus being designed, and he noted how unusual it is for a flu virus to start out of season, and not come from the East.
Quayle suggested the virus may be part of a global plan to reduce the population, and that the mysterious deaths of microbiologists in recent years could be connected to this outbreak-- scientists who could help stop a pandemic were taken out. Jones posited the idea that flu fears could be deliberate hype by the government in order to distract the public from other issues
I do agree that it is a valid International Public Health Problem,,the timing is interesting,but a plot? What do you think?

Still living with the shadows
At the age of 15, Nikki Russo checked into a California hospital for treatment of an eating disorder. It was in this hospital that she was eventually abducted by a nurse, initiated into a coven of witches and thrown into a dark world filled with drugs, alcohol, abuse and intimidation. Nikki Russo hopes The Pomegranate Seed will be a warning to readers not to take anything for granted where cherished institutions are concerned. Today, Russo’s story and struggle to recovery is chronicled in the new book The Pomegranate Seed — Nikki Russo’s Sojourn Through Institutional Failure and the World of the Occult...
I have not read it but sounds interesting

an interesting find:
"COEUR D'ALENE -- It has been said that the Inland Northwest is God's country and now a North Idaho man says he has God's handprint to prove it.
And luckily for the rest of us it's for sale.
Paul Grayhek found the hand the second Sunday in Lent after a massive rock fall in the shape of a hand came down in his backyard.
"You know I thought I'm supposed to share this because it's not about me, and so I figured hey, I'll put it on eBay," Grayhek said....
It was a strong belief that God moved the rocks in Paul's backyard that turned into a business opportunity.
"It cost me $10 plus to list it on eBay, if I got $100 bucks for it great but what I really want is $100,000," Paul said.
His auction on eBay is for "The Hand of God Rock Wall" which has a minimum bid of $100. It includes exclusive rights meaning you can take pictures, include the hand in a book or movie, even move it if you can figure out how."
The picture does not show it as clearly as the video on the site..(story is first link and video is second.)

There is a real monster of Loch Ness and it is NOT "Nessie"
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Born 12 October 1875(1875-10-12)
Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England
Died 1 December 1947 (aged 72)
"Aleister Crowley, born Edward Alexander Crowley (pronounced /ˈkroʊli/), (12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947), was an English occultist, writer, mountaineer, poet, spy and yogi. He was an influential member of several occult organizations, including the Golden Dawn, the A∴A∴, and Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.), and is best known today for his occult writings, especially The Book of the Law, the central sacred text of Thelema. He gained much notoriety during his lifetime, and was dubbed "The Wickedest Man In the World."...
Crowley was also a chess player, painter, astrologer, hedonist, bisexual, drug experimenter, and social critic...
"His father, Edward Crowley, was trained as an engineer but according to Aleister, never worked as one. He did, however, own shares in a lucrative family brewery business, which allowed him to retire before Aleister was born. Through his father's business he was an acquaintance of Aubrey Beardsley. His mother, Emily Bertha Bishop, drew roots from a Devon and Somerset family. Both of his parents were Exclusive Brethren, a more conservative faction of the Plymouth Brethren....
Crowley grew up in a staunch Brethren household and was only allowed to play with children whose families followed the same faith. His father was a fanatical preacher, travelling around Britain and producing pamphlets. Daily Bible studies and private tutoring were mainstays in "Alick's" childhood...
After the death of his father to whom he was very close, he drifted from his religious upbringing, and his mother's efforts at keeping her son in the Christian faith only served to provoke his scepticism. When he was a child, his constant rebellious behaviour displeased his mother to such an extent that she would chastise him by calling him "The Beast" (from the Book of Revelation), an epithet that Crowley would later adopt for himself. He objected to the labelling of what he saw as life's most worthwhile and enjoyable activities as "sinful"."
From an article(link below)
"A plot of land once owned by the self-proclaimed "most wicked man in the world" has been put up for sale, attracting interest from rock stars, developers and disciples of the dark arts.
Boleskine Bay, on Loch Ness at Foyers, was part of an estate renowned at the start of the 20th century as "a centre of black magic, evil and sorcery" under the ownership and influence of satanist Aleister Crowley.
The "Beast of Boleskine", who died in 1947, owned Boleskine Estate between 1899 and 1913, during which time he tried to smother the Highlands in black magic by coaxing out the forces of evil.
The estate, once the home of millionaire rock star Jimmy Page, has been linked to a number of incidents over the years, including at least two violent deaths.
Crowley and his disciples used drugs, sex and blood sacrifices of goats and cats during debauched rituals. The black magician also took pleasure in the suffering that his sinister practices apparently brought to local villagers. He bragged about how an employee of the Boleskine estate got drunk one night - after 20 years of abstinence - and attempted to kill his wife and children.
The family of Crowley's lodge keeper, Hugh Gillies, also suffered a series of tragedies. First his 10-year-old daughter died suddenly at her school desk and a year later his 15-month-old son died of convulsions on his mother's knee.
Such is the reputation of the white-stoned home of sorcery that during his three years in residence, at the beginning of the 20th century, the villagers of Foyers avoided the estate at all costs.
Although Crowley died penniless in 1947, the years have not erased the memories of his association with the Scottish Highlands home. Visitors to the estate have reported seeing lights flashing on and off by themselves, windows shattering and a chair which belonged to Crowley moving on its own.
In 1960 the then owner of the house, Major Edward Grant, shot himself in the bedroom which had been used by Crowley for some of his satanic rituals."

Straight from Coast to Coast for all of us "Nessie" believers...I just made some darling Nessie earrings but they are not up.
"Today in Strangeness:
On this date 75 years ago, a British surgeon's alleged picture of the Loch Ness Monster was first published in London's Daily Mail. While the veracity of the image continues to be debated to this day, the "Surgeon's photo," as it would come to be known, gained iconic status and remains the signature picture of the elusive sea serpent."

Puerto Rico: Unwanted Passenger or Trick of the Light?
Researchers of the paranormal have found, over the years, that sometimes the paranormal is researching *them* -- was INEXPLICATA contributor José A. Martínez on the recieving end of one such probe from the unknown?
This morning (04.16.09) José sent us a message and a highly intriguing photograph. While investigating the recent spate of UFO activity in southwestern Puerto Rico, accompanied by Enfoque TV’s Luiseppi Quiñones, the latter took a photo of the rear of José’s car as a test shot. Later, when Quiñones uploaded the digital file to a new program that would keep images from becoming distorted, he chose the one depicting the rear of the auto as a test image. When he magnified it on the computer, he noticed something unusual looking back at him through the rear window. Reportedly, Quiñones remarked to his wife that “he didn’t think one of José’s daughters had come along for the investigation” and that he was otherwise alone. He phoned Martinez to advise him of this condition, and sent him the JPEG. José has very kindly shared this photo file with us and something is indeed visible in the window. A ghost? A hybrid ET? Merely a subtle play of lights and shadow on tempered glass? You be the judge.
I used the picture from the story..

People are amazing with ways to make money.From a recent article:
It happens to all of us at some point, of course. Some of us go expectedly, while others pass very sudden. But no matter which way we go, death is not cheap. From hospital bills to funeral home expenses and burial fees, lots of places are vying for a piece of an estate after a loved one is gone.
Want to notify people after you’ve died? Thanks to several Web sites, now you can.
You can now add another industry to that list. Deathswitch.com and Slightlymorbid.com will help the deceased communicate to friends and family even after they have left this world. Both sites will send out e-mails, provided by the deceased while they are living, to pre-selected people after they are gone. The information could contain passwords, final wishes, love notes, or just a simple message letting an online gaming buddy know that you have passed.
The first question that came to my mind was, “How do these sites know that someone has died?” Deathswitch relies on e-mail prompts that are sent at intervals determined by the user. If those e-mail prompts aren’t answered, Deathswitch assumes the user is no longer with us. Slightlymorbid uses a different approach. It requires a friend or family member of the deceased to log in to pronounce the person deceased...."

The problem with misdiagnosis is not uncommon especially for women.Here is one that took a very long time to be recognized.It happens to be found as happening with a lot of nurses and teachers..Another from my favorite radio show Coast To CoastAN.
Physician, Dr Amelia Withington, RN, Trisha Springstead, and Dr. Randy Wymore discussed the mysterious symptoms of Morgellons Disease and the history and science behind it. Morgellons is characterized by a number of symptoms that affect the skin including biting and crawling sensations, lesions, and thin fibers or filaments that can be extracted from the lesions. Wymore said he's done testing of the fibers and confirmed there are no living cells associated with them, yet they don't appear to be artificial like textiles. Withington cited reports from the 16th century that might be the first known cases of Morgellons-- sick children that had strange hairs fall out of their backs.
Dr. Withington noted that in many cases sufferers have had some contact with soil, and the disease could have a vector like tick-borne illnesses such as Lyme Disease. She said patients also suffer from "brain fog," insomnia, and symptoms that look like depression. In the past, Morgellons sufferers were often incorrectly diagnosed as having mental problems.
Morgellons cases turn up highest for nurses and teachers, leading Springstead to speculate that they may be exposed to workplace chemicals. Withington suggested that the disease could be jumpstarted by a reaction between a virus or bacteria mixed with pollutants. She currently uses holistic methods to treat patients and a number of people have found relief from home remedies such as hot baths and drinking vinegar.

A CAT-BOY has stunned medics with his ability to SEE in pitch black with eyes that GLOW in the dark.
Doctors have studied Nong Youhui’s amazing eyesight since his dad took him to hospital in Dahua, southern China, concerned over his bright blue eyes.
Dad Ling said: "They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did."
Medical tests conducted in complete darkness show Youhui can read perfectly without any light and sees as clearly as most people do during the day.
Experts believe he was born with a rare condition called leukodermia which has left his eyes with less protective pigment and more sensitive to light.

However you feel about conspiracy theories or mind control.This is really weird.From a recent brodcast of Coast To Coast AM a researcher spoke of her work and interests.
"...researcher Rayelan Allan discussed her unusual and personal experiences in such areas as covert government programs, mind control, and secret societies like Knights Templar. At one point in her life she began to hear voices, and initially thought she had been chosen to receive New Age-style channeled messages. Later, she found out from her husband, a Naval Officer in the CIA, that what she was actually hearing was "voice to skull" technology, developed as part of the government's electronic warfare program.
Allan discussed her marriage to Gunther Russbacher, the October Surprise Pilot, who she said became a political prisoner. During a trip to Austria, he revealed to her that he was one of the Knights Templar, along with details about the treasures the Templars recovered from King Solomon's Temple.
Before Rayelan married Gunther and had a complete life changing experience, she gave workshops across the United States.
Her workshops were called Activated Cellular Memory.
In 1984 she had a near death experience which resulted in an out of body journey. In the out of body adventure she was taken to a classroom where she was taught how to help people move quickly and painlessly beyond traumas that are holding them back.

Finger Length Predicts Speed, Aggression, Smarts, Motivation
By Robert Roy Britt, Editorial Director
posted: 12 March 2009 06:23 pm EThttp://www.livescience.com/health/090312-finger-length-speed.html
Previous research has shown:
* Finger length can predict the likelihood of aggression in men (but not women).
* Kids with longer ring fingers are likely to have higher SAT math scores than literacy or verbal scores, while children whose index fingers are longer are more likely to do better at reading and writing, or verbal, rather than the math tests.
* A 2006 study in the journal BMJ linked a certain finger ratio to women's athletic prowess and also linked the differences to hormones in the womb.
* People whose ring finger is longer than their index finger are at higher risk of osteoarthritis, according to a study last year in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatism.
You can finger other body parts as behavior predictors, too.
A 2004 study in the American Journal of Human Biology found that the farther certain paired body parts were from symmetry — one ear or foot bigger than the other, for example — the more likely a person would show signs of aggression when provoked.
"Stressors during pregnancy [such as poor health, alcohol use or smoking] may lead to asymmetrical body parts," explained researcher Zeynep Benderlioglu of Ohio State University. "The same stressors will also affect development of the central nervous system, which involves impulse control and aggression." While asymmetry doesn't cause aggression, she said, the two things "seem to be correlated to similar factors during pregnancy."....
Boys with ring fingers longer than their index fingers run faster, a new study finds.
Finger-length ratios have been related to a host of things good and bad, from fertility and disease vulnerability to test scores and personality traits. In fact, you'll need the digits on both hands, regardless of their length, to count all the correlations that have been made.
Researchers say exposure to testosterone in the womb is behind the speedy kids and their finger-length ratios. The scientists studied 241 boys aged 10 to 17 at a talent-spotting competition in Qatar. Those with longer ring fingers were faster at every stage of a 50-meter sprint race, according to an article in The Telegraph.
"The advantage they had was soon apparent after the start of the sprint and remained steady thereafter," said John Manning, a researcher at Southampton University who led the study.

Recently there was a discussion of the movie "A Haunting In Conn." on my favorite Coast To CoastAM radio show.The owner of the house, Mr.Bean was discussing his experiences.A quote is below..
You may have seen the program "A Haunting." Apparently the video depicts the presentation on that program.
"When people come under attack from evil, it doesn't just come up to your face and say, "Oh, here I am... We're going to kill you or destroy you!" It's a covert type thing and it's a gradual type thing, and it feeds off people's negative emotions. This is how it gains its power." --Bill Bean
