Big Foot Little One Wants To Learn?

Teachers at Mathiba Primary School in Maun had to abruptly end classes last week Friday after students reported seeing a hairy little creature.

Regional Director for North West District in the Ministry of Education and Skills Development, Acro Maseko said that they had to send students back home after Standard 6 and 7 students claimed to have seen ‘a black little hairy creature which resembled a human being.’

The incident which happened around 12 noon culminated in ten students treated for shock at a local clinic and released the same day.

“We will be holding prayers in the school soon after meeting parents and chiefs but for now we had asked for professional councillors to help. “

Maseko further said that although teachers did not see anything, students screamed and ran amok while others fainted which made it hard for classes to continue with classes on that day.

“Standard 7 students are about to startr exams and events of such nature which spark mass hysteria sometimes happen to them in this area,” a teacher said.

When quizzed about past incidents, Maseko said that he was new in the area and was not familiar with past incidents. - The Voice BW

Is Ted Bundy Back?

I'm a resident of UCI in Bradford Co, FL. serving a life sentence. For many years I heard the rumors of Ted Bundy's ghost appearing and didn't believe it. Now, my mind has changed. I and other residents (including staff) have witnessed the ghost on many occasions. It is definitely Bundy. It comes in the early morning before dawn in our housing unit and in different cells. He's always smiling. It's a white-blue mist but very detailed. Some of the other residents claim to hear him talking. I have not heard that yet. Any suggestions on how this can be taken care of?

In 2008, the reports coming from the prison were very strange. It appeared that the ghost of Ted Bundy showed up and terrorized prison guards and inmates. A guard who asked not to be identified said that Bundy's ghost appeared in the area where he was executed and in his former cell where he spent his last hours before being put into Florida's electric chair.

Up until the end Bundy tried to save his life by offering to tell where more bodies were buried, but eventually officials refused to give him any more time and he was executed. The 2008 reports of his ghost leaked out of the prison. It was reported that the Warden's staff even threatened to fire guards if they spread the story of Ted's ghost being at the prison. It is also rumored that some guards were scared into quitting their jobs because of Bundy's spectre.

Stone Age people may have battled against a zombie apocalypse

The zombie apocalypse may be much more than a plot device exploited by modern horror movies. In fact, fears about the walking dead may go back all the way to the Stone Age.

Archaeologists working in Europe and the Middle East have recently unearthed evidence of a mysterious Stone Age "skull-smashing" culture, according to New Scientist. Human skulls buried underneath an ancient settlement in Syria were found detached from their bodies with their faces smashed in. Eerily, it appears that the skulls were exhumed and detached from their bodies several years after originally being buried. It was then that they were smashed in and reburied separate from their bodies.

According to Juan José Ibañez of the Spanish National Research Council in Barcelona, the finding could suggest that these Stone Age "skull-smashers" believed the living were under some kind of threat from the dead. Perhaps they believed that the only way of protecting themselves was to smash in the corpses' faces, detach their heads and rebury them apart from their bodies.

But here's the creepy thing: many of the 10,000-year-old skulls appear to have been separated from their spines long after their bodies had already begun to decompose. Why would this skull-smashing ritual be performed so long after individuals had died? Did they only pose a threat to the living long after their original burial and death?

If it was a ritualistic exercise, it also raises questions about why only select corpses were chosen. All of the smashed skulls were from adult males between the ages of 18 and 30. Furthermore, there was no trace of delicate cutting. It appears that the skulls' faces were simply smashed in using brute force with a stone tool.

Of course, there's almost certain to be a rational explanation for all of this. Then again, it's also fun to consider the possibility that these findings represent evidence for a Stone Age zombie uprising.

Let's consider a few key facets of zombie mythology. Zombies, as we know, are hungry for the flesh of the living, and the only way to stop them is with a head shot. In many zombie movies, this involves shooting them in the cranium. One might surmise that the Stone Age equivalent of this would be to instead smash in their faces with a big rock. Perhaps the lopping off of their heads was then performed to ensure that the job was done.

Perhaps the reason the original dead bodies seemed to be exhumed before their heads were properly smashed in was because the dead had risen from their own graves, under their own power.

Maybe, just maybe, Stone Age Syrians battled against and saved the world from an imminent zombie apocalypse some 10,000 years ago. The theory may not make great fodder for a scientific thesis, but it sets up the plotline for a B-grade horror movie to perfection.

Ibañez, not biting, operates with a cooler head. Being ever the sound researcher, he has proposed more tempered theories to explain the findings. For instance, it's possible that Stone Age people simply believed that they could absorb the strength of the dead young men by performing the ritual. This would help explain why all the skulls were from young men. It would also help to explain why the heads were buried directly underneath a thriving settlement. He also suggested the head-smashing could have been an act of revenge or spite.

A Tribute To Dr. Frank S Pittman III Friend And Mentor

I just found out yesterday that one of my favorite persons on the planet died in November 2012 with cancer. I joined Frank at Grady Hospital in Atlanta many years ago when he had begun as Chairman of the Psychiatry Department  there. His plan was to employ a Crisis Intervention Team to serve the area rather than open a new wing.It was a daunting task which he took on.It included convincing the Resident MDs of this novel interdisciplinary team functioning while all the team "learned" crisis intervention  skills with a family therapy focus. Psychiatry shared the Medical Emergency Room with the other disciplines. The patients often called this "Mother Grady" while the Residents usually called it "The Snake Pit." Needless to say it was a cauldron of unusual and serious situations. I was the first person he identified and hired as a Crisis Therapist.Psychiatric Social Workers and a Psychologist alon with another Attending Physucuan were hired as was another nurse. We evolved into two teams with each of us having an assigned Resident physician to work with as a co therapist during the experience at Grady.

He was an effective and fun administrator. We all struggled and learned.He set it up with supervision and support for each of the therapist twosomes. and the trams. He was actively there for us day or night(We covered the ER 24/7.,and the Outpatient as well as the Inpatient Services.Such varied experience could never happen many places. His good will and support led us all. In fact for many years after I left the team I sent him Mother's Day cards!

Beware Speeders! Riding Broomsticks!

"lBroomstick-flying witches to be brought down in Swaziland

MBABANE: Witches flying broomsticks in Swaziland above 150m will be subject to arrest and a hefty fine of R500 000, civil aviation authorities said yesterday.

Witches’ broomsticks are considered similar to any heavier-than-air transportation device that is airborne. The statute also forbids toy helicopters and children’s kites from ascending too high into the country’s airspace.

“A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the (150m) limit,” Civil Aviation Authority marketing and corporate affairs director Sabelo Dlamini said yesterday.

No penalties exist for witches flying below 150m.

How serious he was is hard to say. However, witchcraft isn’t a joking matter in Swaziland.

Dlamini was asked by the Swazi press to explain the country’s aviation laws following the arrest of a private detective, Hunter Shongwe, for operating a toy helicopter equipped with a video camera.

Shongwe boasted of using the device to gather surveillance information similar to the way a drone aircraft operates.

The detective was charged with operating an unregistered aircraft and for failing to appear beforeditional authorities about his toy drone, the first of its kind in Swaziland.

Swazi brooms are short, tied bundles of sticks, without handles, and Swazi witches are known to use them to fling potions about homesteads – but not for transport. – Independent Foreign Service

Do You "Blame" Sylvia Browne

I have long been a believer in Psychics proved credible. For years I supported Sylvia Browne reading her books and arguing at times with the many who doubtes her. This new development leaves me not as strong but ambivaleny about her. Note two other missing persons are reported as having been false as well. Now no psychic can claim all things to be accurate but these are HUGE mistakes for the effect on the family and community.
"s we all celebrate the safe return of 3 missing girls in Cleveland, it’s not all good news as a related death may have been prevented if not for a certain well known psychic.

As many of you know, I’m not a big fan of psychics. There are just too many charlatans out there and the bigger the name, the bigger the scam.

Now comes some very somber news from an otherwise joyous Tuesday as an old video of the Montel Williams Show has been dug up. On this particular episode in 2004, the mother of Amanda Berry, Louwanna Miller appealed to world famous psychic, Sylvia Browne for help in finding out what happened to her daughter.She was told her daughter was dead;"

So the mother went home cleaned out her daughters room and disposed of her things. One report says that the police and
fbi accepted Sulvias statements as true,(This does not often happen to my knowledge so wonder about this part!) The mother dies several months later. Many believe it from a  "Broken Heart" related to Stlvias news...What do you think?

Ghosts For Revenge

Jennifer Scelsi created the doc: "Spirits out for Revenge"on CSI Paranormal @facebook( Good site to visit or join.)
Some paranormal investigators call these  types of spirits avengers or revengers. This type of ghost returns to right a wrong or avenge a death. in other words , it is seeking some kind of justice.
For example, if the person is a victim of a murder and the killer hasn't been caught, the victim's spirit may return to reveal the murderer or exact some type of personal revenge against the attacker.

A ghost that is seeking revenge may appear at the scene of the crime until someone living understands that foul play may have occurred. The spirit may also make itself known to someone it knew and trusted while alive in order to get assistance in seeking that justice is served.
Spirits out for avenge feel that they've been wronged in some way while alive, and can  behave in a vengeful and hostile manner. These types of ghosts can be male or female, and it's possible they may appear in the same clothing they were in when they were alive.
In some cases they can appear as apparitions but can't speak and may try to communicate with the living through different means such as appearing very often at the place they died or were  killed. They may continue appearing to one or more living people they knew in life until that person or people realize that some type of foul play could have   uch ghosts can cause cold spots in rooms and sudden drops in temperature. They may also act in the same manner as a poltergeist and throw objects around rooms, slam doors and so on. In extreme cases, they can go much further. They can push people down stairs, in front of cars, or find anyway possible to cause physical harm and or emotional suffering to the person they feel has wronged them.

When a vengeful spirit goes as far as to try and harm someone physically, it wouldn't be uncommon for this type of spirit to be mistaken for a demon.
Ghosts out for revenge only have one goal and that's to make life miserable as possible for the person or people who,  for whatever reason, feel they deserve it.
